A Turn on Alternative Facts

This time from the infamous Jenna Ellis, former legal aide to Trump's Death star.

Though censured in Colorado for her part in Trump's Passion Play and admitting to 10 false statements during the disciplinary hearing, Ms. Ellis is shocked that the media has said she admitted to lying about the 2020 election (read this in another WAPO column, Aaron Blake, The Fix). According to Blake, she 'merely admitted her public claims were unintentionally false.'

Even though . . .

Ellis signed a legal acknowledgment that “she made a number of public statements about the November 2020 presidential election that were false” and did so with a “reckless state of mind” and with selfish motives, according to documents released by Colorado’s Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.

She maintains . . .

“This was politically motivated from the start from Democrats and Never Trumpers,” Ellis said in a statement to The Washington Post on Thursday. “They ultimately failed to destroy me and failed in their attempt to deprive me of my bar license. I’m glad to have this behind me and remain in good standing in the State of Colorado.”

The grievance whine is loud and strong--all politically motivated, Ellis claims, even though she signed off on making false statements, did so in a reckless manner and with selfish motives.

She may remain in good standing in Colorado, was able to retain her license but her reputation is pretty well shot.

Good Lord I'm tired of these people!


Oh, get this!

Doug Mastriano is seriously considering a run for the US Senate, a run against Bob Casey from the great state of Pennsylvania.

Not sure what is more infuriating--the gall or the continuing delusion. Mastriano was clobbered in his run for PA Governor. Now he thinks he can compete for a senate seat.

Bring it on! I'd love to see all these MAGAts clobbered a thousand times.



Children and Cancer

Our family received devastating news this week. My grand-daughter Cassandra, not quite 3 years old, has been diagnosed with liver cancer. She's had a very bumpy road since her 26-week preemie birth, has defied all manner of grim prognoses, and developed into a happy, giggly, dancing (loves all things musical) little girl.

Now this.

We've been notified she'll start chemo next week to shrink the liver tumor and, since the entire organ appears compromised, she could very well require a transplant. We're all holding our breath that the spot on her lung is scarring due to all the early lung interventions and 18-month ventilator usage.

Anyone here have experience with these childhood cancers or words of wisdom for fretting relatives? Prayers and good vibes would help, too.

My son and daughter-in-law are, of course, in total shock. It's a stunning reversal. Words fail moments like these, other than: it's so unfair. But even that sounds lame.

Would welcome any advice. Thanks in advance!
