Common person head scratcher re J6

Re: The encounter Hutchinson described that occured. Presumably, shortly after the event ( trump freaking out in SUV)

1. Why would Engel tell Ornato? Aren't they trump apologists? Why would they trash him? Heat of moment? And then call Hutchinson in? Why?

2. Why did Ornato tell Hutchinson the story? It happened to Engel! In fact it had just happened to Engel! Did he just stand there mute?

3. Why wave her in to tell her? Either they were all incredibly simpatico or something??

Vice Presidents are so frustrating. They can't or dont

speak their minds. And they recoil at anything that could be controversial Seems like such a waste of opinion and talent. All across the board, Rs and D's....what a thankless, horrible place it must be?

Is there a superlative to " sore loser-ness"? Machiavellian behavior?

Is you step away and look.... This is all sore loser gone wild. It is not pushing lies about fraud first and foremost.... It's " no way can I lose" and I will do anything to make it not true. This is the angle, IMHO, that should be pushed. He, given 50 years of getting his way, could not lose.

FDA bans JUUL ecigs


@nytimes: Breaking News: The FDA ordered Juul to stop selling e-cigarettes in the U.S., a big setback to the brand blamed for the teen vaping crisis. https://nyti.ms/3OirPAE



@_samaleman: they really banned juul before AR-15s https://twitter.com/phil_lewis_/status/1539982179320610817

Frequent Flyer free tix

Been trying to get back to Europe for a while. Got an AA card and are up to 200k points.

A first class tix now costs 700k points !!!!! Or, they are doing something new now.... 250k points plus $919 in cash. Which I guess is kind of the same as buying an economy ticket with an upgrade? Just plugged in a simple search JFK to Paris.

I've been a member of AA frequent flyer forever.. and it always feels like whenever I want to go somewhere they have upped the number of points needed and I'm always a little bit behind

Anyone else dealing with this?

Just heard CNN panelist say that unless the J6 hearings result

in a successful prosecution, they will have failed.

Do you agree?


Just spent week with family on vacation. One out of many is a wingnut. Kept saying hearing was one sided and lacked due justice. I personally, have not heard any rebuttal to all the horror. Is there???? Because they plead 5th or don't appear? is this an obvious fact?
