Call it what it is dammit;

I get it that the MSM is right wing and controls the narrative, for example, why do we religiously call the border fence a border wall?

This really pisses me off though, let's call what MF45 did by its proper name; sedition.

/səˈdiSH(ə n/

conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

I don't expect GQPers to call it sedition but I do expect everyone else to call it sedition.

Don't underestimate the power of the narrative.

GQP select committee strategy

The GQP strategy is to discredit the 1/6 select committee as being a one sided partisan committee.

I was watching the hearing on msnbc and when it was over on comes Chuck Toad to give a platform to the GQP strategy. He brought on a GQP politician who proceeded to bash the committee as not having opposition GQP members.

I turned the Channel to CNN.

Barrack's private jet

What are the odds that Barrack flies from California to New York in his private jet to his hearing on Monday?

What is the nearest country with no US extradition?

Kavanaugh wasn't vetted.

The FBI and or the White House lawyers covered up Kavanaugh's record instead of conducting an investigation. I understand that Democratic Senators have written a stern letter to FBI Director Wray but to you legal people out there, what is the procedure for removing Kavanaugh in light of his record was not investigated but instead covered up. I mean we had a reputable person (Ford) accuse him of sexual assault.

Democrats can't allow his confirmation to stand without a fight. (A fight is not a stern letter)

Notice how the MSM also covers this up.

Democrats have lost the narrative

I know what the rules are regarding speaking negatively of Democrats, with that said, if I just go gleefully on praising them I would be doing a disservice to them.

I hear or see no discussion of S1, I guess it's dead and we will just have to wait until the next election to see if we can overcome voter suppression, gerrymandering, and allowing Republicans to choose their own Electoral college delegates regardless of the voters preferences.

I also see time spent on the bipartisan infrastructure bill was wasted time and now I am reading today that the infrastructure bill that is scheduled to be passed through reconciliation is in danger of failing unless it is scaled way back. Will Democrats unite and pass a strong infrastructure bill?

No, I see that the narrative today has moved on to raising the debt ceiling. The reason for this narrative is to paint Democrats as big spenders who must be stopped increasing the national debt. As a matter of fact, Lyndsey Graham has come out and flatly stated that there must be cuts to Social Security and Medicare before Republicans will agree to raise the debt ceiling. So my question about this is, surely Democrats will not capitulate to any negotiations regarding Graham's demand, surely Democrats will ignore this demand for cuts SS and Medicare? Also, why is raising the debt ceiling the narrative now? Republicans are excellent at controlling the narrative because the MSM is complicit with them. We need Democrats to force the narrative back where it belongs, S1, bold infrastructure, getting vaccinated and suppressing Covid mutations, getting to the bottom of who was behind the insurrection and not just holding the people who invaded the Capitol accountable but the funders and members of Congress who were complicit.

I will appreciate anyone who can talk me off the ledge I am on.

Bipartisan infrastructure bill,

Let's cut to the chase, will there be 10 GQPers vote for this? I'm sorry for being a pessimist but I watched those Charley Brown cartoons where Lucy always pulls the football away. This, to me is just another example of the GQP running out the clock. Let's talk turkey, Mitch McConnell said he was going to pull away the football every time, why don't Democrats believe him?

Pass S1.

Question about these undemocratic election laws.

Nearly 400 undemocratic election laws are being proposed in Republican controlled states. 22 undemocratic laws have already been passed.

#1. Marc Elias is doing great work filing law suits, but Marc Elias is not the answer. It will take years for these law suits to get to court and there is no guarantee that Elias will win these law suits since MF45 has appointed 320+ Nazi judges. Even if Elias wins I'm sure these cases will be taken to the Nazi-controlled Supreme Court. We don't have years to stop these laws.

#2. I voted by mail in Pa. and this year I had to give my driver's license number, if I didn't have a license I would have had to give some other type of personal information. I agreed to give the county election official my driver's license number because they are responsible for protecting its privacy, there is a chain of custody that protects who sees my personal information. I did not agree to give my personal information to a Nazi Qanon group called Cyber Ninjas. If Pa. does the same fraudit that Arizona did I am going to raise holy hell with my Senators and Representatives. Why can't DOJ or someone step in and protect my voter information that is getting more personal in nature?

#3. Please do something to pass S1.

Sign I saw coming home from the 4th.

I couldn't take a pic, was driving home, it was on a "church". Well the bishop who runs the church, I think, made himself bishop.

Still, this is in MF45 country; the sign read;

Hell, is Living the Big Lie.

I had to ponder that one.

Newspaper sues Cyber Ninjas, Republicans

An Arizona newspaper has filed a law suit against the Cyber Ninjas and the Arizona state Senate, demanding to know who is funding the fraudit and what procedures they are using. The newspaper claims that taxpayers and voters have a right to know.

My question is, why hasn't our DOJ done this months ago? Federal election law is being violated.
