The MAGA Cavalry will never come to rescue Trump.

He wants people to believe that if he ever goes to jail or is held legally accountable, his followers will come with guns to rescue him. That will never happen.

If he ever goes to jail, he will find himself alone with his illusions.

There will be no uprising to save his sorry butt. He will find that it is his cross to bear. His followers will not unite to save him from his legal problems, including incarceration.

Republicans will pretend they hardly knew him.

Someday he will brag, "I got away with it all..."

"I threatened and bribed people".

"I was able to persuade thousands and thousands of people to come to Washington and to attack the Capitol building of the United States. They believed every word I said. They were willing to die for me."

"I convinced Congressmen and Senators to help me steal the election. They were more than willing to help. They promoted the Big Lie that the election was stolen, even after every one of them won their re-election on the same ballot. "

"I stabbed our allies in the back every chance I got and befriended the most evil dictators in the world, including Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un."

"When I left the White House, I took every top secret and classified document in the possession of American intelligence and they still don't know what I did with them."

And they all laughed and praised the criminal that lied his way to power and lied his way out of being held accountable for any of it.

America was befuddled. "Why didn't someone tell us, they said?"

Desolation Row

January 16, 2024

Without hyperbole, where are we sitting after the next election?

Are we dependent upon the Supreme Court to save American democracy as we have known it?

Without exaggeration, what could we expect if Trump defeats Biden in November?

What should the American people do to prevent the catastrophe some believe is coming?

How confident are you that the Democrats will win the next election?

Should Democrats, Republicans (not MAGA), and Independents try to work together to defeat this threat that is on the horizon?

Or is it all simply "the sky is falling" talk?

Gentle on my Mind

Is it time for a momentous and historical decision from the Supreme Court?

One would think the majority of them would see the threat to our democracy, from Trump and his supporters, and would rule to the letter of the Constitution.

But, will they?

Will they simply refuse to hear the "immunity" claim of Drumpf and send it back down to the Court for a jury verdict before any appeal?

Also, would they show the courage to go along with the Colorado Supreme Court decision that said Drumpf was disqualified from holding office and should not be on any ballot?

In my opinion, the latter is unlikely but the first is a possibility.

If that happened, it would give Drumpf the delay that he wants because he could still appeal after the verdict and the Supreme Court could hold it until after the election. Drumpf would get the delay he wanted, even if the jury found him guilty.

January 15, 2024

MAGA believes that Drumpf is above the law.

When folks say that we are a nation of laws, not a nation of men, they scoff at the idea.

Why should anyone take them seriously?

They believe there should be an exception for them and their Cult Leader.

They threaten the rule of law.

They spit on the rule of law.

The Problem Is FOXNEWS

Someone forgot to drive the wooden stake thru their heart. The $780,000,000 dollars fine did not seem to get their attention. They were guilty of spreading lies and propaganda.

Last night, they held their live "lovefest" with Trump, just as the debate in Iowa between the other Republicans, was going on. Scarborough, on MSNBC, referred to it as soft "T-ball" questions.

They continue to pretend that January 6th did not happen. They have no obligation to tell their viewers about what happened. They have no obligation to tell their viewers about the many crimes that Donald Trump is charged with, including attempting to over-turn a fair election and to install a wannabe "dictator" back into the White House. They continue to lie to the American people.

Their First Amendment rights do not give them the right to betray this country with their lies and propaganda, especially when we see consequences such as those on January 6th, 2021.

The America-hating Murdoch family has learned nothing from their last run-in with the law. They are back to their old ways, only worse.

Boris Epshteyn was sitting with Trump's lawyers yesterday?

Was it because he was the only one that could speak Russian?

Is Donald still reporting back to Pootie?

Maybe Boris is just a good lawyer?

I only heard it reported one time, on CNN I think?

Anyone else hear that story?

How low have we sunk as a nation?

Defendant Trump's lawyers argue in front of 3 Appeals Court judges that their client has absolute immunity to murder his political foes so long as he has gone thru the impeachment process in the Senate. A total misreading of the impeachment clause.

Murder!? Absolute corruption.

Insane! The media reported that the lawyers "seemed to suggest" that Trump had absolute immunity to do whatever he wanted to do so long as he was the president. They said it straight out, in my opinion.

The insanity is the way our country seems to accept such a story as common politics from the Republican Party, as the rest of the nation seems to accept it as the new "normal".
