That's probably true, but he is very aware of how bad this makes him look and how it's going to limit his future options for grifting. It's also like acid poured into his narcissistic wound, still suppurating from two impeachments and getting thrown out of the White House.

Dems have never been more united even in the Senate. From what I am hearing, Manchin and Sinema are posturing but understand Dem agenda, esp voting rights, needs to go forward. Infrastructure is not far behind. There is going to be “tense” moments with bills looking all but certain to stall but they won’t. There likely will be a period of time where Dems give republicans a chance to say they tried. They will likely stay the obstructionist party so expect Dems to move along with filibuster reform and advancing their agenda. There is zero doubt republicans have no popular policies to run on and Dems have all the popular policies to run on. Dems understand this like never before.

[quote] Brianna Westbrook, an Arizona Democratic Party official and former national surrogate for the Bernie Sanders campaign, said Sinema’s political transformation was “a complete 180” and is “hard to put in words.” There is “no doubt,” Westbrook says, that Sinema will face progressive pressure at home if she tries to hold up legislation.
[quote] There were signs of what was to come when Sinema entered national politics. During her first term in congress, she joined the Blue Dog Coalition, a corporate-friendly group of Democrats obsessed with finding common ground with conservatives. It was also clear from the beginning, Andiola recalled, that Sinema “really believed the way to try to win or to push back on legislation was by working with Republicans.” Sinema voted to block the admission of Syrian and Iraqi refugees and has often sided with Republicans on immigration, including in support of the punitive anti-immigrant proposal known as “Kate’s Law,” which Trump pushed as part of his crackdown. In 2018, she voted with House Republicans to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a rogue agency that has faced countless allegations of abuse and inhumane treatment. For Andiola, Sinema’s rightward turn, particularly on immigration, has been disappointing to see. “I don’t know what she believes anymore,” Andiola said.

Three months after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol to try to overturn his November election loss, about half of Republicans believe the siege was largely a non-violent protest or was the handiwork of left-wing activists “trying to make Trump look bad,” a new Reuters/Ipsos poll has found.
Six in 10 Republicans also believe the false claim put out by Trump that November’s presidential election “was stolen” from him due to widespread voter fraud, and the same proportion of Republicans think he should run again in 2024, the March 30-31 poll showed.
Since the Capitol attack, Trump, many of his allies within the Republican Party and right-wing media personalities have publicly painted a picture of the day’s events jarringly at odds with reality.
Hundreds of Trump’s supporters, mobilized by the former president’s false claims of a stolen election, climbed walls of the Capitol building and smashed windows to gain entry while lawmakers were inside voting to certify President Joe Biden’s election victory. The rioters - many of them sporting Trump campaign gear and waving flags - also included known white supremacist groups such as the Proud Boys.
In a recent interview with Fox News, Trump said the rioters posed “zero threat.” Other prominent Republicans, such as Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, have publicly doubted whether Trump supporters were behind the riot.
Last month, 12 Republicans in the House of Representatives voted against a resolution honoring Capitol Police officers who defended the grounds during the rampage, with one lawmaker saying that he objected using the word “insurrection” to describe the incident.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll shows a large number of rank-and-file Republicans have embraced the myth. While 59% of all Americans say Trump bears some responsibility for the attack, only three in 10 Republicans agree. Eight in 10 Democrats and six in 10 independents reject the false claims that the Capitol siege was “mostly peaceful” or it was staged by left-wing protestors.
“Republicans have their own version of reality,” said John Geer, an expert on public opinion at Vanderbilt University. “It is a huge problem. Democracy requires accountability and accountability requires evidence.”
The refusal of Trump and prominent Republicans to repudiate the events of Jan. 6 increases the likelihood of a similar incident happening again, said Susan Corke, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups.
“That is the biggest danger – normalizing this behavior,” Corke said. “I do think we are going to see more violence.”

Since 1/6, it has not been easy getting information. I have not felt at ease giving information. There are so many ongoing investigations. Really serious stuff. I try to be clever when I tell a rumor. My hints aren’t hard to figure out. It wasn’t newsworthy that Gaetz was hated on the Hill or that he was sleazy. What we were surprised about was him showing vids on the House floor.
These Treason threads are watched because they are so informative. I’m not surprised somebody I know from the Hill who doesn’t like me is likely one of my “fans” here. I don’t have any real Senate contacts but plenty of House contacts. They’ve been busy with their jobs first and foremost. They’ve also been cooperating in a huge, ongoing criminal investigation of 1/6 involving multiple agencies. 1/6 has changed the Dem side of the House in profound ways. They now see republicans for who they are- traitors- deeply, profoundly corrupt and untrustworthy. As much as AZ wants to buck his party, he’s so far in the closet (though it’s known) and has some skeletons that keep him on enough of a leash.

Both Dems and Repubes believed the GOP generally was destined to have the senate over time: too many big, mostly empty, Red states (deathly afraid of an invasion by a couple hundred brown skinned people) versus the majority of the US population crowded into fewer Blue states. Two votes per state - Red wins.
Stacey Adam’s remarkable GOTV example and changing demographics (hence the census fight) put both the Senate and the House in play. Repubes need to minimize both until they can figure out how to appeal to a new emerging majority.
They’ve been trying “grievance” culture (“you’re being held back by THEM”) because it initially worked for The Donald. That was before it became painfully apparent that:
1). It was blatantly racist (Good People on both sides, Proud Boys, and bad bad George Floyd protestors); and,
2). The middle class people Repubes hoped would expand their party gradually began to realize it was not an amorphous THEM, but rather the GOP who was keeping them down (essential workers exposed covid; Gold Star parents; etc).
The GOP’s only solution is to try to make blatant suppression of democracy on a disproportionately racial basis sound like a justifiable response to a nonexistent threat (BTW, are those 2018 caravans of Guatemalan rapists here yet?).
Prior to Trump’s 2020 “upset” the GOP could pretend they were all about sternly administered good government. Now, without him in the WH to manipulate the census, they’ve no choice but to become patently blatant.

The link attached is from a legitimate source. Here are some quotes from something called "National File" which looks to be a rightwing website:
[quote] Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, who is expected to run for U.S. Senate, had an extramarital affair from July 2019 to November 2020, his ex-mistress Cesaire McPherson told NATIONAL FILE. Cesaire McPherson, a legal assistant, said that she slept with John Merrill in his marital bed.
[quote] Merrill enjoyed having his anus breached with sex toys, according to McPherson, who also said that Merrill used his government vehicle to visit her home and used his official phone to send text messages. McPherson said that she recorded herself having sex with the Secretary of State on one occasion. McPherson said that Merrill engaged in physical fights with her that led to bruises on her body, with the politician grabbing and shoving her. McPherson also said that Merrill is a “real bad racist” who made disparaging remarks about African-Americans in her presence. NATIONAL FILE has obtained text messages that McPherson said Merrill exchanged with her. Audio of Cesaire McPherson’s interview with NATIONAL FILE is presented here:
[quote] “He might act like he likes black people, but he’s really racist. Real bad racist…(He would say) ‘The colored folks. He was loved by all the coloreds.’…’And they go around thinking everything is supposed to be there’s, and given to them, and all this and that…the black people should be appreciative'”
[quote] “Then he wanted to start watching pornography movies and order them at his house. Yeah, I just thought it was weird. And he got mad at me, he was like, ‘I paid fifteen dollars for that.'”
[quote] “I recorded it one time. I had this little USB recorder that records things. And as a matter of fact, I have one that has Night vision…”
[quote] “I would drink a lot of wine. Sometimes in the morning, I would say, Did we have sex? And he was like, ‘Yeah! We had sex so many times in the night. And you did this and you did that.'”
[quote] “I have had some bruises on my wrists and arms. I took pictures of those things. We did get in a few fights. And, he never slapped me or punched me, but he would grab a hold of my arms and my wrists. I took pictures. And even one time I broke his cell phone. The State cell phone. I offered to pay for it. But he said no. He said it was his fault…I had to call and schedule an appointment for him to go in and have it fixed. But he took it in there and he waited for it to be fixed. Because I’m sure he wanted to make sure nobody got any information off of it.”

I give you Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul in Kentucky, Lindsay Graham in South Carolina, Ted Cruz over Beto in Texas. All polls leading up predicted very close races, exit polls were very different from final results. And all these candidates were very arrogant about their races, claimed the polls didn't mean anything. They acted like they knew something no one else did.

According to The Washington Post, Manhattan prosecutors are now looking into the suspicious salary and benefits paid out from the Trump Organization to Barry Weisselberg, the son of the organization's CFO and the manager of Trump's ice skating rinks.
"Former president Donald Trump's company paid a skating rink manager more than $200,000 in annual salary, $40,000 yearly bonuses and provided free company-owned apartments for his family, according to testimony of the employee, Barry Weisselberg, and his financial documents," reported Shayna Jacobs, Jonathan O'Connell, and David A. Fahrenthold. "Such payments and perks, as well as other financial support provided to Weisselberg and his family, have drawn new scrutiny from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. (D) as a potentially key component of his ongoing criminal investigation into the former president's business activity and finances."
According to the report, "On Thursday, Barry Weisselberg's ex-wife, Jennifer Weisselberg, provided documents and a laptop to Vance's office in response to a grand jury subpoena requiring her to produce all of the records she possessed for her ex-husband's bank accounts and credit cards plus his statements of net worth and tax filings ... The documents show an array of payments and perks that Barry Weisselberg and his family received as a result of his employment for Trump's company over 18 years, likely raising key questions for investigators analyzing the finances of the cash-only skating rink and working to ascertain whether the proper taxes were paid."
The Trump Organization's management of the Wollman Rink has raised suspicion and scrutiny due to the fact that visitors were required to pay cash only.
The report noted that prosecutors could try to use tax or financial charges against Barry Weisselberg to flip Allen Weisselberg against Trump. The older Weisselberg, one of Trump's longest and closest allies, has thus far resisted pressure to cooperate against his longtime employer.

Remember the viral rumor that Kamala put her purse on top of the Bible for her swearing in?
[quote] A Florida woman sent videos to her incarcerated spouse in which she threatened to assassinate Vice President Kamala Harris, according to a complaint filed in South Florida federal court. “If I see you in the street, I’m gonna kill your ass Kamala Harris,” Niviane Petit Phelps of Miami Gardens allegedly said in one. “I’m going to the gun range, just for your ass,” Phelps reportedly said in another. In a video dated Feb. 18, 2021, the complaint says she warned, “50 days from today, mark this day down, stupid bitch, Kamala fuckin’ Harris vice president. You gonna fuckin’ die 50 days from today, I swear to fuckin’ God.” Photographs intercepted by prison authorities allegedly show a smiling Phelps posing at a gun range holding a pistol, standing next to a target riddled with bullet holes.
[quote] On Feb. 22, Phelps applied for a concealed carry permit. Less than two weeks later, the Secret Service showed up at her home. After first refusing to speak with agents, Phelps soon agreed to an interview. She claimed that she was upset about Harris becoming VP because she didn’t believe she was “actually Black,” and that she didn’t like the way she held her purse during the inauguration, the complaint says. However, Phelps stated that she was “past it,” and that she had no intention of going to D.C. to carry out the plan she had previously described. “Didn’t you say we were going,” interjected Phelps’ daughter, to which Phelps immediately responded, “No, we’re not going.”

[quote]Lachlan Murdoch, his supermodel wife Sarah and their three children quietly arrived in Australia from Los Angeles last month. And while no reason was given for the family's return Down Under, a new report has claimed that it was the political climate in the US that helped make the decision for the family to leave LA in favour of their Sydney home. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the family 'felt the cold winds of political change' when Joe Biden assumed power over Donald Trump, after the family-owned Fox News appeared to favour the Republican Party throughout the election campaign.
Lachlan Murdoch's Fox News is responsible for a major portion of the political upheaval in the U.S. He cuts and runs when scrutiny and criticism for Fox's perpetuation of conspiracy theories and DJT election lies gain enhanced exposure.

Did Putin activate a sleeper cell, "The Prostrate Eight", of Republican politicians?
This is an article from December, 2019:
[quote]IN 2018, EIGHT REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS celebrated the Fourth of July in Moscow, Russia: Senator Richard C. Shelby of Alabama, who led the delegation, along with Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, John Neely Kennedy of Louisiana, Steve Daines of Montana, North Dakota’s John Hoeven, Jerry Moran of Kansas, South Dakota’s John Thune, and Rep. Kay Granger of the 12th District of Texas. The ostensible reason for the trip was “engagement”—the same tired excuse Senator Rand Paul routinely provides to justify his own shadowy meetings with our enemies.
The still unyielding loyalty to Trump by multiple Senate and House Republicans may be the fear of exposure and the potential blackmail by Vlad. These guys were weak in condemning the January 6 insurrection and protected Trump from being held accountable. Being complicit in this insurrection by these fellows, one may not dismiss. Something gave Trump high confidence there was "inside" support and knowledge of the operation beyond the types such as Ted Cruz & Josh Hawley who are driven by their own presidential ambitions. Look how Johnson, Kennedy, etc. voted in the chamber against approving certain states' results per Biden's win in the electoral college.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A draft of new legislation obtained by More Perfect Union reveals Ohio Republicans’ aggressive agenda to suppress the vote after the 2020 election. The draft bill, which comes in at a whopping 151 pages, draws inspiration from some of the worst voter suppression laws in the country, including Georgia’s SB 202 and Iowa’s SF 413. Included in the draft bill are provisions to:
Require two forms of ID when voting absentee or early
Eliminate drop boxes
Limit early voting
Ban pre-paid postage on absentee ballots
Republicans in Ohio had previously announced they were planning to introduce voter suppression legislation in the coming weeks. Until now, the state was one of only three in the country that was not considering new voting restrictions in the legislature this year. Democrats in Ohio have proposed a bill to expand access to ballot drop boxes, but the Republican majority in the state legislature refuse to put it on the committee schedule.

Lachlan Murdoch's favorite figure to daily feature, Lindsey Graham, calling any other entity "drunk", is quite an absurd display of projection and hypocrisy.

Trump endorses insurrection motivator Mo Brooks in the Alabama Senate race over primary challenger Lynda Blanchard, a wealthy businesswoman and former Ambassador to Slovenia. She has been a big Trump donor.
Are Alabama Democrats going to put up a gallant effort for this seat?

I am curious what the end game of the Mercers is. Total destruction of any vestige of capitalism and then what? Gilead or just complete totalitarian oligarchy like Russia?

Why not a combination of both, r234?
That seems to be the end game here. A world where that rancid fugly cunt Rebekkka five head is queen and anyone who calls her a fugly cunt from inferior stock can be executed for the blasphemy.

Republicans in SC, led by the Governor, go extreme right. I suppose roads, health care, public education, and environmental destruction are not bad enough for them.
[quote]We are at war,” McMaster said. “I don’t know that the party has ever been stronger than it is right now, but probably never more frustrated either to watch what’s going on at the national level. It is just a tragedy.”
They are also divided. The pro-insurrectionists and election conspiracy theories wing, seeks to control all.
[quote]Further illustrating the divide among some Republicans is an attempt by attorney Lin Wood, an unapologetic pro-Trump lawyer who continues to push conspiracy theories about the presidential election, to replace McKissick as S.C. GOP chairman.

Ron DeSantis Is the Republican Autopsy
[quote] You can think of it as a series of careful two-steps. Raise teacher’s salaries while denouncing critical race theory and left-wing indoctrination. Spend money on conservation and climate change mitigation through a program that carefully doesn’t mention climate change itself. Choose a Latina running mate while backing E-Verify laws. Welcome conflict with the press, but try to make sure you’re on favorable ground.
[quote] This is not exactly the kind of Republicanism that the party’s donor class wanted back in 2012: DeSantis is to their right on immigration and social issues, and arguably to their left on spending. But the trauma of Trumpism has taught the G.O.P. elite that some compromise with base politics is inevitable, and right now DeSantis seems like the safest version of that compromise — Trump-y when necessary, but not Trump-y all the time.
[quote] Of course all of this means that he may soon attract the ire of a certain former president, who has zero interest in someone besides himself being the party front-runner for 2024. And the idea that a non-Trump front-runner could be anointed early and actually win seems at odds with everything we’ve seen from the G.O.P. recently.

Joe Scarborough blasts Gym Jordan.
Gym's tactic of rapid questions prefaced with lies make him beyond annoying. His yapping, spewing highly partisan garbage and defiance, is all for show.
He and his cohorts run their mouths for attention, but do zero in working with other colleagues to fix or improve major problems.

Junior Mint, now top Trump advisor, on the LGBT attack. Focusing with dad on anti-transgender initiatives.
[quote]Trump Jr.'s impact was on full display earlier this month, when Trump caught himself fuming at a televised interview with Gov. Asa Hutchinson over the Arkansas Republican's stance on transgender issues, one that would have previously escaped his attention. Unlike the days when Trump would camp out in an annex off the Oval Office, griping to aides about critical cable coverage he'd seen of himself or his administration, this time he was incensed by Hutchinson's veto of a Republican-backed bill blocking gender-affirming treatments for transgender youth in his state. The former President had been watching one of his favorite primetime programs, "Tucker Carlson Tonight," from the residence at his Mar-a-Lago club when Carlson and Hutchinson got into a sparring match over the matter. A person familiar with the episode said Trump was "cursing at the television," and became increasingly frustrated by Hutchinson's rebuttals. Two days later, the ex-President released a statement through his Save America leadership PAC accusing Hutchinson of supporting the "chemical castration of children." To outside observers, it seemed odd that Trump, who largely avoided LGBTQ issues during his presidency beyond banning transgender Americans from serving in the US military, would issue a statement skewering one of the nation's most conservative governors over a veto related to transgender youth. But inside the former President's orbit, it was abundantly clear who had influenced him.

Doesn't "Classic" imply a very notable sporting event held over many years? The "Masters" is a classic. But this is a shakedown of rich deplorables.
