Just because we don't get to see the inner workings of the DOJ doesn't not mean Garland has been sitting on his hands. Most of the work to bring certain people to justice is done behind the scenes. The public only sees the effects of all that work once charges are brought. Justice can be an excruciatingly slow process.

No, r19, you have never heard such a Presidential speech like this before. You haven't even heard regular journalists use the word "lie" regarding Trump.
And the DOJ is on the case. Have you heard of the Watergate break-in of 1972? The Watergate Hearings Final Report came two years later, to the month. Then and only then did Nixon give up.
|by Anonymous||reply 31||January 6, 2022 2:53 PM|
Biden was terrific and historic. Kamala did well. Her speech was slightly overwritten.
I am really really really picking nits but there were moments in both speeches that were actually too poetic... "I will allow no one to place a dagger at the throat of democracy." I'd have said hold a knife. Daggers are the props of Shakespeare. Knives are something almost every American can literally imagine at their throat. I think of Churchill: “Short words are best, and old words when short are best of all.” CNN just observed the presidential historian Jon Meacham probably had a hand in Biden's remarks and he probably did. It was good. And Trump's head will explode, which is awesome.
The challenge now will be to go forward with the powerful, honest, startling accusations. They can't revert to bipartisan pleasantries now. This was the opening and they better not shrink from it.

So much so that he is creating more lies and claiming his name was mentioned when it wasn't. He's living in his alternate reality like he always have. Way to go, Joe!!

Back when there were protests after W stole the election, the GOP was floating the idea that the liberals who were protesting were trying to "take over the government" and "stop the peaceful transfer of power."
Of course that wasn't true, they were exaggerating for effect. But that same GOP is going to be exaggerating the OTHER way when it's their party behind a REAL attempt at a coup and stopping the transfer of power. That's just what their party does.

Even GOP stalwart Karl Rove -- one of the most divisive, destructive figures in modern-day politics – agrees. From an op-ed he penned in today's WSJ:
"If Democrats had done what some Trump supporters did on that violent Jan. 6, Republicans would have criticized them mercilessly and been right to do so. Republicans would have torched any high official who encouraged violence or stood mute while it was waged and been right to do so. Republicans would have demanded an investigation to find who was responsible for the violence and been right to do so.
There can be no soft-pedaling what happened and no absolution for those who planned, encouraged and aided the attempt to overthrow our democracy. Love of country demands nothing less. That’s true patriotism."

Well, I'll say this...
Trump nor the Republicans never saw that speech coming. Not like that. Not from Biden anyway. Yes, they probably expected a little "huff & puff" but nothing that was so manly and macho that would cause some to have to change their panties. But, Biden has given forceful and moving speeches before. The problem is that there is no follow up. There is NO WAY that any other POTUS with a drop of testosterone in him allow Manchin to get away with doing what he is doing right now. But... maybe, its still early. Maybe President Biden has a trump up his sleeve that will destroy both Manchin and Sinema.

I think Joe & Joe have an understanding. Manchin is up for re-election in Hillbilly Holler, so he has to act like he is outraged. But soon he'll say they have reached some sort of agreement, and BBB will pass.

As for Garland, look. I remember too well how eager and optimistic I was when Mueller took over the investigation of Trump's interference in 2016 election. End of the day, Mueller caved. I was so disappointed and disheartened. Now we have Garland. He presented a litany of their "accomplishments." Frankly I was embarrassed at how few arrests were made. We had thousands of insurrectionists breaching the Capitol. Less than 1,000 have been charged. But I am also concerned at how narrow Garland's focus is. The DoJ is so focused on the terrorists who violently breached the building, there seems to be very little focus on who planned it, financed it and conceived it, and when the plans began? The other problem I have is that as far as I know the Department of Justice has not impaneled a Grand Jury, they have no issued subpoenas, etc. Which is what you do in an investigation. The House Select Committee has done these things, but not the DoJ. So my fear is that like Mueller, Garland will be focused narrowly to avoid "politics." Right now we need to eliminate the filibuster, pass voting rights, and expand the Supreme Court. And we need to ban anyone who actively participated in the insurrection from holding public office, because there are insurrectionists running in every state and the state legislatures are shitting all over voting rights. I predict Biden's ratings will go up when he acts strong, decisive and tough.

President Biden suddenly looks so old. He has aged a lot in just a year.
I don’t say this as a criticism though: it’s just a sad fact. In some ways, the presidency came to him too late. However, he was definitely the right man to take the office away from Trump. If the American democratic system endures, Biden will be a big part of the reason why. He deserves gratitude from everyone who wants that to happen.
I’m fervently hoping that the American people turn out to support him in the mid-terms too. He deserves it.

I'm so glad Biden highlighted a point that so many have been making over the past year, but the god damned media never question the Republican assholes about it: How do you Republicans have the nerve to either deny, deflect or outright claim fraud with ballots Biden won when a Republican won on the SAME ballot? Chuck Todd on one of these douchebags on today and he did everything to avoid answering "Did Biden win?" but Todd never asked him, "Then how the fuck did YOU win on that same ballot?"

R223, because while the media did everything to deny the obvious, most of us knew precisely why they gravitated to him: His toxic bigotry and racism. People forget that was the moment he became the front-runner. The moment his entire platform became demonizing people, he became the front-runner. The GOP had been doing that for decades, but not so proudly and loudly as Trump. All that fucking orange clown did is say out loud what the avg GOPer thinks. Hate, scapegoating, fear-mongering - that's why Tucker Carlson is the most popular shit in the turd pile at FOX. Because he plays off of that fear and hate.
Trump is such an elitist he would sooner be among Hollywood LIBERAL celebs than any of these imbeciles who worship him. He has no respect for people who served, no concern for people who suffer, no empathy for anyone period. His flying monkeys are scum. I have no need to in any way "humanize" those who cheered on the dehumanization of others.

Since when is Pence himself cooperating with the Jan. 6 committee? I've read that a few of Pence's former staff are cooperating, and Liz Cheney was quoted saying that she "looks forward" to Pence's cooperation - but there has been no confirmation that her statement was anything more than wishful thinking, and I believe it will remain wishful thinking.

If the Hollywood libs invited him to join the Academy, he'd do it in a heartbeat, cause it's all he cares about.

No. Just no, R105.
Tensions rose dramatically between 2016 and 2020. Then came the pandemic which also “inflamed” things further.
Prior to the January 6th anniversary speech, Biden has attempted to heal the polarization within the USA.
However, as others have noted, his speech today rightly acknowledged what occurred on January 6th, 2021. There is NO getting around this fact.
The insurrection challenged democracy within the country - the very foundations that support and create the USA. To deny or not acknowledge this fact would only further erode the bedrock that sustains the USA.
It is not being “divisive” to call out that which erodes the foundation of the country. The insurrection is a manifestation of all sorts of ills that PLAGUE the United States. To deny this would only enable further rot and disease to fester and spread throughout the body politic.
If you want to call out anyone for being “DIVISIVE”, R105, rightly shift your focus to those who were “irresponsible” and DANGEROUSLY incited and performed the events of the attack on the Capitol on January 6th, 2021.

Maybe in DC , R260, but elsewhere, I suspect that many of the people who were big Bush-Cheney fans have long abandoned the GOP and those dinner party conversations happened some time in 2017..
There has been a major sea change in who each party represents that is somewhat worrisome in the long term for Democrats. The GOP is now the party of the white working class and many of them wear their Trump-Love like a tribal badge.
Meanwhile, we are now the party of the educated upper middle class, the Meritocrats who run corporate America, the media and tech. We too also wear our Democratic politics like a badge.
They key will be if the GOP can retain those white working class voters post-Trump or if they will either abandon the GOP (best case) or just go back to being apathetic and rarely voting at all. (more likely outcome)
I suspect history will judge Trump harshly and that just as historians still spend lots of time speculating on how the Germans let Hitler seduce them, they will do the same with America and Trump

In fact, Lindsey would co-sign any sneaky, manipulative act he could get away with. But when he is exposed, when he is confronted by the results of his treachery, the violence, etc. that all his lying has provoked, he pisses all over himself.

Personally I don't care how they get him, as long as they get him. Taking most of his money away would probably be worse punishment for him than sending him to prison. He wouldn't live long if they took most of his money and all of his properties, and it would take that just to repay the government for all the money he's stolen from the taxpayers and the banks over the years.

What we saw was not "divisive anger"; what we saw and heard was the outrage of a patriot shocked and repulsed to his core.
President Biden made clear---in tone, language, and demeanor---that he considered his speech location as hallowed ground that had briefly but dangerously been defiled by treasonous filthy (literally; Joe mentioned "defecation") Yahoos on a mission built on the lies of his predecessor, and that on his, Biden's, watch the government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from this earth.

I have said since 2015 that the only sure fire way to get rid of Trump is that the GOP has to clean house and police their own. Until that happens, this movement will not stop. The Cheney and Kinzinger Clans represent that “inside job” that the GOP desperately needs. They need to give themselves the enema, it can’t come from us. Either way, I plan to help continuing the crushing of their movement, but our cause will be tremendously lifted by uniting with GOP’ers who believe in democracy.

Pres. Biden comes from a time when many politicians respected and practiced statesmanship. They are above lying down with dogs. They rise above others who demonstrate what trash they really are. They unwittingly show that the old saying "you're no better than anyone else" is certainly not true. There are plenty of people in Congress Pres. Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and other democrats are far better than.

Democrats have a history of challenging election results, on even more nebulous grounds than the 2020 election.
[quote] starting with George W. Bush’s victory in the 2000 presidential election, Democrats contested election results after every Republican win.
Most notably, they also have a history of attempting to overturn state elections.
[quote] In January 2005, in the wake of Mr. Bush’s re-election, Democrats were more aggressive. Senator Barbara Boxer of California joined Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones of Ohio to lodge a formal objection to Ohio’s electoral votes. The objection compelled Congress to spend two hours in debate, even though Mr. Bush won Ohio by more than 118,000 votes.
So if we put aside the question of whether it was right or wrong, why is it that those who object are spreading the "Big Lie" and are responsible for incitement and those Democrats who did the exact same thing previously were acting in good faith? Why are they pretending that merely questioning the last election, which was unprecedented due to the record number of mail in ballots where even supporters of Biden's victory say that there was most likely negligible fraud, considered a violation of democracy itself?
Why continue to beat this dream when even moderate and centrist Republicans admit that the last election was not without its problems? Why continue to beat this dream when Democrats are hoping to pass a bill that would in effect federalize all state elections? It's pure politics, that's why. And no matter where you fall in line, if you can't see the big picture, then you're just one of the mindless sheep.

That seems to be a constant battle that YouTube has with the Right/Conservative wing, R363. I recall that happening non-stop when Trump ran against Hillary. YouTube has sworn that they had no idea about it--maybe that's true. Anyway, what happened was the Right was able to figure out the YouTube algorithm and then pushed out nothing but Conservative propaganda. Anyone remember Right Side Media? The one man shop that started with only $400 (if that) and broadcasted live (via YouTube) all of the Trump rallies live? Anyway. this placed Hillary and Democrats at a severe disadvantage re the internet. What shocks me is that Democrats never caught onto this.
Anyway, YouTube "Says" that it has a handle on that now. However, every now and then it rears its head back up. About a month or two ago I was being pushed everything Candace Owen until I raised hell about it. I reported channels, I called YouTube, etc and miraculously it stopped. YOU HAVE TO FIGHT BACK!

There is a huge difference between engaging in the most pressing and LEGITIMATE issues and a press corp disingenuously attempting to steer the narrative.
I could be wrong but I suspect this is the same poster who called me out on another thread when I pointed out that Politico is bargain-basement garbage along the same lines as the Daily Mail, NYPost, Fox and now Newsweek. That posting was a dissension voiced by a largely unknown Dem House representative. The point is not so much the content which, in that case, is a legitimate difference of opinion. What is of note is ironically what the specious WaPo article is alleging: content a publisher choses to print (or a Datalounger choses to post) commands from the audience a measure of their finite resource(s).

[quote] Why can't they actually point to several examples of fraud NOT by a Trump supporter and even the one they used as their posterchild for "fraud." turned out to be a lying sack of shit who voted for Trump using his dead wife's ballot.
Faulty machines, poll workers being denied access across multiple counties, unsolicited ballots, poll worker incompetence, and so on. All of the above has been alleged and has been proven to take place. What's hasn't been shown is whether these examples were systemic or not. However, that doesn't matter when you have an American electorate who already doesn't trust the electoral process especially after 2000, 2005, and 2016. The Red Mirage Bernie tried to warn about as being a potential problem came out big time.

R406 he mocked a person who was handicapped, not "the handicapped". There's no need to use hyperbole when the facts are on your side.
Also you are making the mistake that many people care about things like that when they don't affect them. The US has become far more self-centered over the past several decades than it has ever been.
I guess what I'm saying is saying that "Trump mocks the disabled" isn't the big convincing argument you seem to think it is. Which is part of the issue with the internet and the echo chambers everyone is in now. People don't seem to be able to get out of their own heads and realize not everyone thinks like them.

And also to add to the other argument above - Trump and the RNC filed and lost over sixty lawsuits challenging the election results across the United States. He won a few of them on some minor technicalities that didn't affect vote counts but the vast majority were utter wastes of time and money.
Overwhelmingly Republican-controlled legislatures in several swing states had multiple recounts and none found anything that indicated the election was stolen.
Meanwhile, the only cases I have seen of outright voter fraud where people intentionally voted (and were brought up on charges) from the election were from Republicans who believed Trump's (and other Republicans) ongoing narrative that the election was being stolen from them, sort of a "let's fuck Them before They fuck us" kind of attitude.
There of course were minor irregularities that happen with every election because people are fallible and mistakes happen. But again, nothing that would have changed the outcome.
There is a reason, though, that a majority of Republicans think the election was stolen. It's because Fox News and the rest of the right wing media bubble has been telling them that for years now. Those, like the poster in this thread, are so far entrenched in their right wing media that they actually believe this. Left wing media has nothing close to the Fox News/right wing media machine - it is a whole ecosystem of propaganda. And the mainstream media (CNN, NYT, etc.) leans center right if anything.
The reason they believe this lie so solidly is because -they- would cheat to win an election. Because they cannot conceive that someone else wouldn't because they believe in the law, democratic principles, justice, whatever. They are projecting because it is what they would do. And they suffer from the same issue as posters like r406 who seem to have issues realizing that not everyone thinks like them.

The big lie was that this election was the most secure in history. We have the technology to secure elections because none of the already imperfect safeguards we use to prevent relief fraud is used to strengthen our election integrity. Of course you can't prove systemic fraud with eyewitness testimony. Of course you can't do signature verification. It's why the whole concept of unsolicited mail in ballots and unsupervised drop boxes is flawed to begin with. Of course sending out mail in ballots a month before election day heavily favored Democrats. The GOP's mistake was not securing the election before election day.

THE FACT Remains 74 million people in this country ARE pieces of shit because yes, they voted for a man who among the MOUNTAIN OF other TOTAL unethical, immorality, indecency behavior along with his ignorance made fun of a handicap person and in public and at a rally!...
every one of these people are like trump in some way big or small... the fact that they don't know or don't think it's a big deal is MONUMENTALLY huge and disgusting! the only question is do they know they are pieces of shit or don't care that they are...
sorry if i expect EVERYONE in this country to have a single ounce of decency, integrity, character, and empathy!

Trump is a narcissist. All politicians are. Interesting to say that Trump wanted to kill people when the only people who died on January 6 were Trump supporters. Meanwhile, what do you have to say about the BLM riots and the criminals released on bail who then went on to victimize their own communities? What do you have to say about CHAZ where many people died from gun violence? What do you have to say about Biden and other Democratic governors who thought they could use those riots to blame Trump?

R438, Joe is multi-faceted, but none of those facets includes being a magician.
But since we're talking---What legislative agenda that helped Americans not in the Top 1% did the Trump Administration pass?
Oh, wait. There was appointing DeVos to ruin public schools and DeJoy to destroy the USPS. Abandoning the Syrian Kurds. Praising dictators and insulting allies. Refusing to give desperate states equipment to fight Covid-19, telling governors via Jared that the items belonged "to us". Trying to destroy the ACA with nothing to replace it. Refusing adequate help to hurricane-hit Puerto Rico, saying the Mayor of San Juan was exaggerating. Saying there were "good people" in the Charlottesville White Supremacist Nazi violence. Refusing to honor in person our war dead in France because of rain. Praising Jeffrey Epstein. Paying hush money, and then lying about it, to Stormy Daniels, sending his lawyer to prison, while later pardoning criminals in his circle. SKnowingly shouting Covid-19 into the air at Joe Biden during a debate.
Do you want more?
R441, Biden didn't pick her for VP. So there's that. Now that he sees her for the unrealistic, demanding, and touchy non-team player she is, though, Joe won't help her politically henceforth; he won't get snubbed by her twice.
