Ari Melber: "A failed coup without consequences becomes a training exercise."

He may have been quoting someone from today...not sure.

Imagine how it feels as a member of the press to be treated with kindness and respect. What a welcome change.

Anyone know status on Merrick Garland confirmation hearing?

Just did a search and can't find anything since Lindsay said the 8th was too early.

Want some inspiration? While the world has been distracted, change has been happening anyway.

I had no idea there were this many...


There is no one more perfect than Joe Biden for this time in American history.

I have thought that ever since he became the nominee, that he was best suited to put things back together because of his experience - because he knows how it all works when it's working, and he knows who to choose for what jobs. But the more I see of him, the more I think everything about him makes him exactly the right person for this time and it goes far beyond just his experience to the very core of who he is as a person.

Wondering how intelligent people become brainwashed members of a violent cult?

I see many references to Trump followers being stupid. They are not all stupid. I know two people who are very intelligent but buy everything they hear on Fox and support Trump. This interview from Jan. 12 provides a lot of insight into the workings of those minds.

This is well worth the listen. Hassan was in the Moonies and understands cults from the inside out, having been there himself and knowing what it takes to deprogram.

"This week, Katie Couric spoke to Dr. Steven Hassan, who is an expert on Undue Influence, brainwashing, and cults. He writes and speaks out about the importance of viewing terrorist groups as destructive cults, and has authored numerous books on the subject, including one called "The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control." They discussed the events of the Capitol insurrection, and how the mob of violent Trump supporters displayed cult-like behavior."

Something inspiring and uplifting for y'all because I know you need it:

This is from last May. A music major at Portland State was singing the National Anthem in Portland's park blocks for a recording for a virtual commencement ceremony when an African American man walked up and asked if he could sing with her. Turns out he sang with the Portland opera. This was unrehearsed. She didn't know when he was going to join her in singing. It is beautiful and heartwarming.
