Last Halloween I dressed up as the GOP's Health Care plan.

I never made it out of the House.

Here's the FBI affidavit...which should eliminate ALL conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi attack


FLASH: David Depape charged with

"Assault on the immediate family member of a federal official"

"Attempted kidnapping of a federal official"

In attack on Paul Pelosi

Underscoring this:

FBI agent says investigators found a journal in the search of Depape's possessions

Details of that journal could be referenced and relevant at a forthcoming detention hearing


Can we stop pretending there wasn’t a political motivation for the attack on @SpeakerPelosi’s husband now?
DEPAPE’S Interview on October 28, 2022:
15. In a Mirandized and recorded interview of DEPAPE by San Francisco Police
Department Officers, DEPAPE provided the following information:
a. DEPAPE stated that he was going to hold Nancy hostage and talk to her. If
Nancy were to tell DEPAPE the “truth,” he would let her go, and if she “lied,” he
was going to break “her kneecaps.” DEPAPE was certain that Nancy would not
have told the “truth.” In the course of the interview, DEPAPE articulated he
viewed Nancy as the “leader of the pack” of lies told by the Democratic Party.
DEPAPE also later explained that by breaking Nancy’s kneecaps, she would then
have to be wheeled into Congress, which would show other Members of Congress
there were consequences to actions. DEPAPE also explained generally that he
wanted to use Nancy to lure another individual to DEPAPE.
b. DEPAPE stated that he broke into the house through a glass door, which was a
difficult task that required the use of a hammer. DEPAPE stated that Pelosi was in
bed and appeared surprised by DEPAPE. DEPAPE told Pelosi to wake up.
DEPAPE told Pelosi that he was looking for Nancy. Pelosi responded that she
was not present. Pelosi asked how they could resolve the situation, and what


Charles Pierce: We are on the very brink of handing the country over to the lost and the mad.

Over the weekend, watching the reaction to the assault on Paul Pelosi, I just gave up. We are on the very brink of handing the country over to the lost and the mad.
The GOP have finally abandoned the last shreds of common decency, the rule of law and other American ideals.

By Charles P. PiercePUBLISHED: OCT 31, 2022


It was this weekend that I finally gave up. I have watched the steady descent of American conservatism—and its primary public vehicle, the Republican Party—into the terminal depths of the prion disease it acquired when Ronald Reagan and Richard Viguerie and Jerry Falwell first fed it the monkey-brains back in the late 1970s when I was just starting out in this racket.


They are beyond anyone’s reach. They are beyond logic and reason. They left democratic norms and customs far behind decades ago. They are beyond political compromise. They are beyond checks and balances, and they have drifted off into the void of a space far beyond the Constitution.

I appreciate what Max Boot (nobody’s notion of a "libtard" wrote in the Washington Post:

It’s true that, by calling out GOP extremism, Democrats do risk exacerbating the polarization of politics. But they can’t simply ignore this dangerous trend. And it’s not Democrats who are pushing our country to the brink: A New York Times study found that MAGA members of Congress who refused to accept the results of the 2020 election used polarizing language at nearly triple the rate of Democrats[...]So please don’t accept the GOP framing of the assault on Paul Pelosi as evidence of a problem plaguing “both sides of the aisle.” Political violence in America is being driven primarily by the far right, not the far left, and the far right is much closer to the mainstream of the Republican Party than the far left is to the Democratic Party.

But people have been saying this literally for decades. They all were essentially hollering down a well. They did not have large, influential media companies behind them. Their political allies were at best timid and at worst absent.


They found the weapon.

Magats don't give a shit about DEMOCRACY.

Fragile White Syndrome, there's no cure for it.

My favorite responses to this are the ones who are like “you’re talking about racism!”

I'm a big Obama fan, but people forget that his intelligence and way of speaking made a lot of low-education, working-class white folks feel stupid and inferior and came across as smug and dismissive of them, and that's what we're paying for today. twitter.com/Acyn/status/15…


Elon Musk is already spreading dangerous lies on the platform he owns.
