When the news get too depressing these are the books to read.

Now, where can one find happiness? Always a good place to start is: anywhere a good, sound couple of laughs wash away the alternative, of course. And each of the Tricky Headlines eBooks holds hundreds and hundreds of laughs for the having. Here you can enjoy the hilarious, definitely not politically correct (PC) quips, comments, and invariably irreverent observations of/by S D Rodrian on today's news headlines collected in this ever continuing series of books intended most especially of all for the latest eReaders out there (each & every available tablet, computer, and iPhone you can buy).

In a world of serious, sad, and even quite tragic circumstances (a world in which about the greatest need is & always will remain the need for laughter), humor always is the point of departure here... ever the abiding goal of these forthright takes on today's so very truly tricky headlines.

You can a rate & review of the Tricky Headlines at Amazon.com, but note the two reviews already there: One verified purchaser of an ebook wrote a four star review saying he/she found it a "funny take on news" although cautioning it is not "very politically correct." While a reviewer named "Clara" (who doesn't appear to have bought the book) writes ungrammatically that "she" found its writing: "So. Horribly. Written. So poorly written. The world is dumber with this book’s publication” as if Tricky Headlines were Tolstoy and not standup--beside leaving one wondering how "Clara" could review a book "she" could never have read, of course. [Reads a bit like Trump, doesn't it.] But don't be a clairvoyant like "Clara." Buy a book and THEN review it.

Anderson Cooper: Donald Trump’s Latest Coronavirus Ploy Is 1 Of His Most Offensive Yet

When Trump begins claiming that there is no proof whatsoever anyone in the United States, NO ONE, has EVER died of Covid-19 (as Trump is surely bound to start doing sooner or later)... I wonder just how many people outside his 'base' will think that Trump has finally spoken the truth for the first time ever in his entire life? It will be a VERY interesting thing to watch. [I'm sure Trump's base will believe him, of course, as they usually do--even the family members of those who die. But let's see how many others do.]

‘Art Of The Deal’ Co-Author Spells Out Why Coronavirus Deaths ‘Don’t Matter’ To Trump -- Donald Trump’s former ghostwriter declared Friday that the president really doesn’t care about the deaths resulting from the coronavirus pandemic because he has “no conscience” and is solely motivated by the need to dominate. “The deaths, I know this is extreme, the deaths don’t matter to him,” Schwartz concluded, in reference to the nationwide 88,000 death toll from the pandemic. “If it’s this decision between saving himself and saving others, it is no contest.”

Trump Fires State Department Inspector General in Latest Broadside Against Watchdogs

Ya don't blame a dog for barking.

****************************************************

Trump’s continually strange comments on possibly ‘overrated’ coronavirus testing - Two days later, President Trump offered a very different view of testing, repeatedly suggesting that it’s “overrated” and that doing too much testing can needlessly drive up the infection numbers. “When you test, you have a case,” Trump said: “When you test, you find something is wrong with people. If we didn’t do any testing, we would have very few cases.”

ALSO: "If we were to simply stop treating people made sick by it we'd find nobody was ever made sick by this virus. And if we just stopped counting those who die from this virus nobody would ever die of it!" [Ah! At last I'm beginning to understand the 'magic cure' being touted by the Trump Family Mafia! Aren't we lucky to have them in complete charge of our fate at this moment! Thank you, Senate Republicans.]

Eric Trump claims coronavirus is Democratic hoax, will ‘magically’ vanish after 2020 election

By early this month, Trump said during an event with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) that doing so much testing “makes us look bad.” -- “So the media likes to say we have the most cases, but we do, by far, the most testing,” Trump said. “If we did very little testing, we wouldn’t have the most cases. So, in a way, by doing all of this testing, we make ourselves look bad.”

Sure. Let the suckers out there take their chances. It's what suckers were born to do in Trump's World, after all. [Trump and his Mafia pals are all tested & re-tested daily themselves every one though--most especially of all Trump and all those closest to the big bleeding heart.]

Biden says he would revoke permit for Keystone pipeline -- President Trump authorized the project after it was blocked by President Obama. If completed, the pipeline would help carry some 830,000 barrels of crude oil a day from Canada to Texas.

Well, we all know if there's one thing Texas needs is more oil crude. It's not as if the pipeline is risking the lives & health of millions of Americans along its route just so a few billionaires can throw a few extra unneeded billions atop their already sky-high piles of cash! [Right?]

But isn't Trump constantly saying that the coronavirus hasn't killed enough people? [Yes: Every time somebody claims it's killed too many it's like a slap in his face.] So it makes sense then that Trump would want the WHO's fight against the virus shut down.

Trump’s rage at a Fox News anchor contains a key tell

Could there be a 'reasonable' explanation for Trump's callous disregard for the lives of Americans during his pandemic? ["Damn Americans dying by the tens of thousands just to make poor Trump look bad. Damn them! Damn them all to Hell!"] Oh... there might be.

The WHO has been more effective at fighting the coronavirus than Trump has. No wonder he hates it.

White House Press Secretary Goofs Up, Broadcasts Trump’s Banking Details -- Trump vowed during his campaign that he would donate his salary each year. Critics have accused him of collecting far more from customers of his private businesses who spend large amounts to curry favor with Trump and to win favorable federal treatment or contracts. U.S. taxpayers have also been stuck with the price tag for Trump’s frequent trips to his private golf resorts that serve to publicize those operations. As of February, Trump’s golf trips cost the public $133.8 million, the equivalent of 334 years of his salary, according to an analysis by HuffPost.

Buffalo Mayor Says Police Union Is ‘On The Wrong Side Of History’

Those 57 policemen need to make up their minds whether they are loyal to each other or dedicated to enforcing the laws designed to protect the citizens of Buffalo. If they're just going to be loyal to each other perhaps they might be better off quitting the police department and organizing themselves into a criminal gang so they can then go around robbing and killing people until they're finally brought to justice by true officers of the law. Certainly the citizens of Buffalo would be better off with policemen who are actually committed to observing & enforcing the laws designed to protect them.

Buffalo Police Arraigned for Felony Assault, Elderly Protestor Still Critical -- More than 100 police officers, firefighters and other supporters crowded outside the courthouse in Buffalo to protest the assault charges filed against the officers.

If I were a citizen of Buffalo I think I might feel better if those officers sought employment elsewhere... some place that doesn't mind them placing a higher value on their own camaraderie than on their sworn sacred duty to the citizens who pay them to keep them safe.

A Buffalo police statement initially said that a man was injured when he “tripped and fell” during “a skirmish involving protesters,” in which several people were arrested. That language only amplified the criticism, as the video soon showed it was false.

The persons responsible for that self-evident lie were engaging in an egregious cover-up by those whom we trust most to establish the facts. And at the least they should all be immediately removed from the police department to make sure that in the future the public can have trust in those who are charged with protecting them.

The men and women who make the conscious deliberate choice to join the police are from the git-go choosing to hold themselves to a higher standard and ought to therefore always be called to & held to those higher standards--most especially of all when they fail to live up to them.

Trump draws rebukes for suggesting 75-year-old protester pushed to the ground in Buffalo was part of a ‘set up’ -- “We’re at a loss to understand why the president of the United States would make such a dark, dangerous and untrue accusation against him,” the protester’s lawyer said.

Well, I'm certainly not: If Trump came out with 'Mother Teresa was a ho' the only thing I would be at a loss to explain is why he hadn't smeared the sainted nun before. [If you don't know the guy you don't know the guy.]

HBO Max isn’t censoring ‘Gone With the Wind.’ It’s reframing it.

The movie also depicts stereotypes which are (and should be) insulting to a modern audience--and which any & all public shows should warn against (and probably discuss in an adequate preamble). But, all in all, however insulting it may be to so many people black & white, it is still a masterpiece of art and must be preserved and displayed even if perhaps only in a museum... like all those other naked depictions in said museums (which also outrage lots of folks).

And who fully understands that in any reasonable world he's going from the White House either to prison or a sanitarium. Criminals like Trump don't just turn themselves in but must be hunted down and cuffed fighting tooth & nail.

In the back. Knowing the guy wasn't thinking straight. I have no idea what could have possibly been going through this cop's head, but it's a human failing which I don't think rules & disciplines & police academy instruction can cure. I believe what will eventually ameliorate all these failings by so many members of our police is just better department vetting of who becomes a cop: Most certainly with much more intensive and professional use of competent psychiatrists & other mental health experts than is used today... in police departments where far too many times if you just know somebody you're in.

Thomas Jefferson Descendant Calls For Removal Of His Famous Ancestor’s Statues

This raises an interesting question: To whom should we raise or maybe never raise statues in the first place?

What resulted from Columbus's great discovery is us. Everything you see here in the Americas good and bad--The greatness and the places where our dark souls live here even to this day. It is far more useful to look to our human failings in all our selves than in just only a few of us. Would democracy be what we think of it today if the United States had never existed? Would we have never known slavery? The world has always had slavery as far back as you wish to trace the sorry steps of man: Even Africa had a long established tribal social system of slavery before Columbus which made it preferable to acquire slaves from Africa than to enslave native Americans who, not having such a social system, only understood slavery as mere spiteful torture by the European conquerors and died almost to a man refusing to remain enslaved.

Should we condemn Martin Luther King for his human failings or still celebrate him for the great things he did? We will never know whether had George Washington been a much younger man he might have chosen to become king instead of president, as many of his troops demanded.

And would we have been better off without Jefferson?

I am one of those who believes that: No. We would not have been better off without Jefferson and Columbus. Therefore I do not believe we should be toppling their statues: In spite of the griefs they brought to a lot of us the magnitude of the good they brought to the world of men far outshines those griefs. If necessary, add the essential comments to their memorials to complete their truths. But memorialize them we still must because it is our duty to the truth.

In every case it is always our duty to uphold the truth no matter whom it may hurt or embarrass. But it is also our duty not to leave our truths only half-told.

Would we have been better of without Stonewall Jackson? Yes. Would we have been better off without Ulysses S. Grant? No. And now you know whose statue should go up somewhere and whose statue ought never to go up anywhere men memorialize their forebears.

And then to pursue criminal prosecution to the fullest extent of the law of anyone involved in the conspiracy to commit any & all crimes found to have taken place and everyone who aided, enabled or abetted them whether through direct participation or via malfeasance in office (from Bill Barr on down).

Facebook, in a possible reversal, considers banning political ads near the U.S. election -- The company continues to grapple with a large advertising boycott, employee unrest and other issues related to its policies on hate speech and misinformation, according to a person familiar with the company’s thinking.

One of the best outcomes of the current upheavals.

The Facebook boycott is illiberal. Who has the courage to oppose it? -- John Stuart Mill wrote that “If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”

I believe we have grown slightly more subtle than Mill's sweeping generalization: I have never been nor am I likely to ever be against speech that offends, but speech that misleads is an entirely different thing:

Speech that misleads is self-evidently designed to harm others without any positive outcome to anyone whatsoever (except on occasions, for the entirely selfish benefit of those who perversely craft it). And speech that misleads 'for the good' is usually even more diabolical.

It is one thing for Trump to say he doesn't like the measures that are being taken to save lives in this pandemic, but it is quite another thing when he says that testing doesn't save lives (or even implies it). To dispute reality is not free speech, it is lying. And lying should always carry at least a disclaimer.

If someone tells but half the story (implying it's the whole of it) then it's the duty of anyone who can to finish telling that story to the fullest. Although, yes, censoring people who only tell half the story cuts off any possibility that the storyteller has only begun to tell his story. That's why most forms of censorship (except those designed to save us from real harm) are undesirable. Mankind should always give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but giving the benefit of the doubt to a self-evident lie is unimaginably perilous.

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Hoovered Up $400,000 In Campaign Funds In Just 2 Days, Records Reveal

Donald Trump is the only public servant in American history who has never once said: "Please look the other way while I line my pockets." It is quite disturbingly fascinating. If he were planning on remaining president for life to escape legal liability for his crimes one might explain such irrational behavior, but I suspect it's because he's just that stupid.

Trump Reportedly Asked U.S. Ambassador To Help Move British Open To His Resort

The next attorney general's first job in office must be to pursue justice and restitution for everything Donald Trump and his family (and all their criminal associates) have stolen from American taxpayers or have illegally benefited from or by their government positions. And then to mercilessly prosecute these vile criminals to the fullest extent of the law--if for no other reason than simply to restore the nation's honor.

And never EVER put it past him that Trump isn't stupid enough to try to stage a coup:

Trump declines to say whether he’ll accept Nov. election results

I ain't kidd'n either: You guys better start making calls on a lot of those 'key' generals & admirals NOW. See if they're still American officers.

Fox News’s Chris Wallace just exposed Trump as very few have

Trump defends bungled handling of coronavirus with falsehoods and dubious claims -- For weeks now, Trump has claimed without evidence that the rise in voting by mail in many states makes voting susceptible to widespread fraud. “Are you suggesting that you might not accept the results of the election?” Wallace asked. “No,” Trump responded. “I have to see.” Later in the interview, pressed on whether he will accept the results, Trump again declined to say. “I have to see,” he said.

Of course:

     If you're going to stage a coup
     any cheap excuse will do.

Oregon Sues To Protect People From ‘Kidnap And False Arrest’ By Federal Troops -- The DHS paramilitary squads snatching citizens off the street violates three constitutional amendments — the right to free speech, protection from illegal search, and protection from loss of liberty without due process of law, argues the suit, which names DHS, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Federal Protective Service and unknown officers “John Does 1-10” as defendants.

First step in planning a coup is to have your storm trooper enforcers reherse rounding up protesters.

House Democrats Urge Probe Into Trump’s Use Of Federal Officers To Quell Protests

Homeland Security Official Defends Portland ‘Kidnappings’ Amid Calls For Investigation

Having somebody tell you to break the law does not excuse your guilt: There are specific military rules against following an illegal command. That person who orders up a crime may be guilty himself, but that's an entirely separate prosecution from yours. If you break the law you must answer to the law. The federal officers who broke the law in Portland, Oregon [for whatever reason] should be identified and brought to a court of law to answer for their acts of criminal wrongdoing. [Violating someone's civil rights is an extremely serious crime in this country.] That's what our courts are for. The extent of their punishment should rest solely on the seriousness of the crimes they committed, and not on which celebrity might have told them to commit them. [Always, ALWAYS, before breaking the law or even thinking about doing so: consult a lawyer.]

And remember that by the time your case gets to court Trump might not be there to pardon you.

Trump Seeks To Go It Alone After Coronavirus Stimulus Talks Break Down

Now it seems as if it's the Democrats who are pushing ways & means to make things better in the country while the Republicans are trying everything they can to make things even worse just before the election: Maybe they're not sold on the idea of Donald Trump being reelected after all. Perhaps Trump should consider becoming a Democrat and giving Joe Biden a run for his money that way.

Some people familiar with Trump’s thinking said the president is preternaturally averse to difficult challenges that don’t produce immediate results. -- “He’s just not oriented towards things that even in the short term look like they’re involving something that’s hard or negative or that involves sacrifice or pain,” a former senior administration official explained. “He is always anxious to get to a place of touting achievements and being the messenger for good news.”

Trump says he’s blocking Postal Service funding because Democrats want to expand mail-in voting during pandemic

In Trump's defense: Since he's been running the United States government like a criminal enterprise, it is very understandable that Trump should wish to do everything in his power to avoid being prosecuted by losing control of it.

Of course, like all terrible two-year-olds, Trump may enjoy committing his crimes but he just doesn't know how to lie about having committed them all that well: Trump will eventually reveal every crime he's been up to, and without even so much as suspecting that he has just done so!

Tracking Trump’s effort to stay in office by any means necessary

The only thing Donald Trump knows how to do well is evil. Unfortunately for him, evil is only an impulse of the soul, not a craft anyone can easily put into practice with mastery. That's why, try as he might (and will) incompetent Donald Trump just can't seem to make his evil, great as it is, work great for him.

Trump Had No Response When Asked If He Regrets All His Lies

Trump’s campaign to discredit the election is deeply dishonest and dangerous

Trump’s attack on the Postal Service is now a national emergency

All the little self-defeating things Trump does to try to get himself reelected:

Shoving voters' doctors out of their hospital rooms and taking up diagnosing them himself--which few voters think is a good idea.
Lying to voters--a lot of whom actually think is insulting.
Slowing the mail--which pisses off every last single voter.
Killing the funding for Social Security and Medicare by cutting off the taxes that pay for them--which only independently rich people like himself like.
Killing Americans by unleashing Coronairus on them--which they hate even worse.

Honestly, I really have no idea why Trump is so averse to losing the election: I'm convinced that a good 10-year stretch in federal prison would do Trump a world of good; and that he would most probably come out in the end a much improved human being for it.

Trump has weaponized wasting his opponents’ time

USPS Removes Mailboxes, Shuts Down Letter-Sorting Machines As Mail-In Voting Nears

NJ Congressman Calls For Grand Jury Criminal Probe Of Trump’s Election ‘Subversion’ By Mail

If Trump can seek to destroy the delivery of mail in the United States just to try to thwart votes against him: What will he not do to try to hang on to power?

Trump has ordered the pointless imprisonment of men, women, children, and elderly people for no other crime than that they are fleeing here for their very lives.

Trump has sold out his country to its worst enemy for but a promise of a possible handout of Putin cash.

Trump is cynical enough to assume a repugnantly false piety in order to prey on the credence of disarmed and vulnerable believers.

Trump has repeatedly damaged the nation's most important line of defense against all her enemies foreign & domestic: the American intelligence community.

Trump has degraded the State Department and insulted & humiliated our diplomats abroad.

Trump has politicized the Department of Justice and sought to make it complicit in his criminality.

Trump has destroyed the confidence of our greatest allies in America and emboldened & even promoted the most anti-democratic dictators in the world.

Trump has taken every opportunity to abuse his employment in the service of the American people to disgracefully line his own pockets.

Trump has tried to demonize entire segments of the American society in order to promote himself by raising the racial fears of other segments of the population.

Trump has viciously sought to destroy Americans' trust in the free press.

Trump has thought nothing of causing (promoting) the gruesome deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans in order to create as much chaos as possible by November just to remain in power.

Please don't tell me that this is just another average run-of-the-mill corrupt politician--Donald Trump is very probably the most egregious criminal in American history. Is it really any wonder that he cheats on his wife (and has an obnoxiously toxic opinion of women)? That he's a notorious tax cheat? That he cheats & lies shamefully to the American people? That he cheats everybody unfortunate enough to do business with him or to work for him, discarding & disposing of them without a care for their humanity or how much he might hurt or damage them, while stabbing any of them in the back?

This is a man who when he suffers the worst defeat in the history of presidential elections will still try to tell you that he really won--Will there still be anyone out there self-loathing or gullible enough to believe such a man?

You can't expect Donald Trump to punish himself (although he probably does plenty of that in ways that he himself doesn't even suspect). This is a criminal who has mocked & for years has frustrated the laws we live by. And, for the sake of the soul of this country, he must have a reckoning.

Joe Biden and the Democrats must find it in themselves to understand that if we let Donald Trump get away with his countless crimes they no less than Trump have undermined the rule of law and the American way of life we have enjoyed up to the advent of Donald Trump.

Joe Biden, his administration, as well as the American people must all seek in themselves the intestinal fortitude to pursue justice against every last participant in Donald Trump's string of startling crimes against us: Trump is a vicously unique criminal on the American scene and if we want him to be a once-in-a-lifetime (or, preferably, a one-time only) aberration in the history of this nation we must mercilessly seek to institute any number of very strict new laws specifically designed to patch-up the many cracks in the system Trump, his henchmen, and his enablers have taken advantage of to take advantage of the rest of us.

Donald Trump had attacked everything that is good about America and defended her most dangerous enemies as well as our worst social ills. There has to be a good reason for that, and Joe Biden and the Democrats must get to the bottom of it or it will happen to us again and again.

Why Trump so often says the quiet part out loud

But this means that all his lieutenants and enablers, all the henchmen and associates who have ever worked for him or conspired with him know every last detail of every one of Trump's crimes. This makes it incumbent upon law enforcement to sooner or later persuade as many of those who are or who have ever been complicit in Donald Trump's crimes to turn state's evidence and testify against him so that he is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Miles Taylor’s very serious allegations against Trump, explained

True, no punishment can never make up for the devastation Donald Trump has inflicted on this nation, but prosecuting him for a few of them will at the least ensure that future would-be dictators & Trump-like malefactors understand the risks of undertaking their crimes.

Graham did this week on Fox News: "If we lose the House, the Senate, and the White House, they’re going to change the rules of the Senate, Maria, so you only need a majority. Anything coming out of the House sails to the Senate. They’re going to expand the court from nine to whatever number they need to make it liberal. They’re going to abolish the electoral college, which means New York and California pick our president. They’re going to change America."

Yes: America needs to change. The organs of government must reflect the will of the American people, and that is not what is happening right now. Right now a minority party, the GOP, by hook & crook is perverting the American Republic. And that has got to come to an end sooner or later.

Sometimes, he lined up his donors to ask what they needed from the government. -- Chances were good he’d be around. The president has visited his resorts and hotels on nearly 400 days since his inauguration, according to a tally kept by The Times. -- At Mar-a-Lago, he told longtime members that he ought to raise prices on the new crowd angling to join. Then he did — at least twice — bringing the initiation fee to a quarter-million dollars, according to a membership application. -- Just belonging to one of Mr. Trump’s clubs could give members an inside track on administration policy. Mr. Trump consulted them on U.S.-Chinese relations and veterans’ health care. He offered five members ambassadorships and appointed others to advisory roles in his administration. -- In addition to AAR Corp., the Times analysis showed that more than 100 other companies that wanted something from the federal government also patronized Trump properties.

Should Trump Be Prosecuted?

Is there any evidence that Adolph Hitler killed a single person himself. No. Yet who can argue that Hitler isn't directly responsible for most of the 68 million human lives lost to WWII? So too is Donald Trump certainly directly responsible for most of the quarter million American lives which he alone could have saved had he done ANYTHING to save them: Anyone as 'directly responsible as Trump' for even so much as a single human life should never escape prosecution.

When it comes to prosecuting Trump, let’s be selective

‘No Pardons. No Immunity’: Mary Trump Says Her Family Must Pay

Should Donald Trump be prosecuted? Proceed with caution.

The following is an article which ought to be read by every American of every age:

Can America Restore the Rule of Law Without Prosecuting Trump?

Full immunity from criminal prosecution may perhaps be acceptable when the president is a decent, honest person. But when you grant full immunity from criminal prosecution to an out-and-out criminal like Trump watch for the skies to fall in. This time we were lucky that Trump is of the stupid criminal variety and not some criminal mastermind like Napoleon. But we cannot count on sheer raw luck to save the nation every time!

     "some legal thinkers have gone so far as to argue
      that because the president has complete authority
      over the administration of justice, he cannot by
      definition commit an act that interferes with it."

The President is not The Pope: If any prosecutor in the land commits an act of interference with the administration of justice he/she is liable for prosecution. The President is in effect the chief prosecutor in the land. Therefore, in the case of the President, there must be a statute which specifies that if prosecution of the President has perhaps a chance of interfering with the proper workings of the government then filing such a charge must be delayed until the president's term is over without marking any passing of time against the statute of limitations.

     "It may be time to rethink Ford’s decision once more;

What Is Trump Playing At?

START QUOTE

Campbell noted that

    one of the most penetrating comments on Trump’s character in 2016 came from none other than Ted Cruz, who described him as a sociopath, who wholeheartedly believed whatever he happened to be saying at the time.

It’s quite likely, Campbell continued,

    that Trump is not deliberately “lying” in his recent statements, that he genuinely believes that evil forces are conspiring to steal an election that he actually won.

On that note, Ted Cruz’s remarks about Trump in May 2016, which appear in sharp contrast to his sycophancy now, capture the essence of our president — and why the combination of this man and this historic moment, is so worrying:

    This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology textbook, his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.

    He accuses everybody on that debate stage of lying. And it’s simply a mindless yell. Whatever he does, he accuses everyone else of doing. The man cannot tell the truth, but he combines it with being a narcissist. A narcissist at a level I don’t think this country has ever seen.

    Everything in Donald’s world is about Donald. And he combines being a pathological liar, and I say pathological because I actually think Donald, if you hooked him up to a lie-detector test, he could say one thing in the morning, one thing at noon and one thing in the evening, all contradictory and he’ll pass the lie detector test each time. Whatever lie he’s telling, at that minute he believes it.

Cruz added:

    Bullies don’t come from strength, bullies come from weakness. Bullies come from a deep, yawning cavern of insecurity.

The fact that Trump does not care about the scope of the mayhem he creates — that he revels in anarchic conflagration — creates exceptional danger.

Lawmakers Who Backed Texas Lawsuit Should Be Barred From House: NJ Congressman

Twitter Critics Shred GOP Lawmakers Who Shot Themselves In The Foot For Trump

"Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) has called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to bar 126 GOP representatives from the House, arguing that their support for the failed, baseless Texas lawsuit seeking to hijack the presidential election violated the Constitution by seeking to nullify Americans’ votes and instead choose a “dictator.” He cited Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, enacted after the Civil War and designed to keep traitors out of government. The section prohibits anyone who had gone to war against the union or given aid and comfort to the nation’s enemies from running for federal or state office."

Republicans had a duty not only to follow faithfully the letter of the law but also the spirit of the law--and that one fateful duty all these Republicans refused to do when they placed failed hotelier Donald Trump above their oaths of allegiance to the Constitution. This slew of Republicans can never again be trusted to faithfully serve in the Congress of The United States of America.

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment says: "No person who has engaged in or supported insurrection or rebellion against the United States may hold public office."

The remedy to this treasonous Republican madness is for the House to put into action Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution and refuse to seat members who did not accept the election and "actively" worked to overthrow it. Then governors of their respective states can appoint someone to serve their terms until a special election is held--in which elections none of these current members may participate.

This will not happen. Why? [And "why did so many Republicans jump on board with what Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro aptly described as 'this seditious abuse of the judicial process' (17 of 26 Republican state attorneys general, nearly two-thirds of House Republicans, 106 on Thursday, 20 more on Friday, including the minority leader, Kevin McCarthy (Calif.)?)...?"]

Why not? Because while the Republicans would gladly kill them all where they stand, the Democrats will always be more than glad to forgive the Republicans--And the Republicans know it.

But if it continues like this, my friends, one of the two must eventually end up being killed--And the Republicans know it.

If the Democrats don't play Republican hard-ball now they will just be encouraging the Republicans to come at them even harder still the next time.

GOP Congressman: We Need The Senate To Investigate Hunter Biden

Republicans were once the anti-radicals. They’re now battering American democracy. -- "But a party that elevated Donald Trump from Manhattan’s class clown to the U.S. presidency no longer has any use for the likes of Kirk, Edmund Burke or William F. Buckley. -- For four years, Republicans averted their eyes as Trump broke the law, defied constitutional norms, trashed governing traditions, dehumanized political opponents and further radicalized a party that had long ago become unmoored from conservative tradition — and yet that proved to be but a preview of worse things to come. Now, Republican leaders are either actively engaged in sedition against the United States or offering their silent support to a president furiously working to overturn an election."

Now we know that if a viciously competent GOP leader were to stage a genuinely serious coup against the people of America these Republican partisans would no doubt be the members of our government giving aid and comfort to the death of the American Nation. We need patriots to be at the ready in our government, not traitors in waiting like these Republicans!

Dominion voting machine firm sues Giuliani for more than $1.3 billion

Free speech is the ability to freely express your opinion no matter whom it may offend. Therefore it should be hard to prove that someone has been harmed just because he took offence at somebody else's opinion.

Libel is the willful hurting of someone. Therefore it should be easy to prove that someone has been harmed by a libel.

Giuliani wasn’t just a Trump partisan but a shrewd marketer of vitamins, gold, lawsuit says

Free speech is not the same as lying: When lying in public always try to be as certain (or, at least as certain as you can) that your lies cannot be easily proven (to be lies). Trump, Sidney Powell, Giuliani, L. Lin Wood, and the rest of the very stupid GOP liars simply disregarded this important rule. So now they have to pay the consequences of libeling a lot of people.

House Votes To Strip Marjorie Taylor Greene Of Committee Assignments

Opinion: Marjorie Taylor Greene and her crock-of-bile tears -- on the House floor on Thursday, Greene portrayed herself as “a very regular American, just like the people I represent in my district.” Which, if true, is a depressing thought.

But closer to the truth than you might think: Everybody I talk to down here in this Florida neighborhood thinks Greene is even more of 'a regular Joe' than is Biden!

Opinion: Marjorie Taylor Greene and her crock-of-bile tears -- Shedding crock-of-bile tears behind her “FREE SPEECH” mask, the freshman congresswoman even claimed she was actually a victim of the QAnon movement that she once embraced. “I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true and I would ask questions about them and talk about them,” Greene said, “and that is absolutely what I regret.”

So somebody told her that democrats were eating babies and she was like, "Really? Wow! Everybody knows this?" [Anybody ask Greene who was it controlled what she could/could not believe? I wonder.]

Opinion: Marjorie Taylor Greene and her crock-of-bile tears -- on Thursday, Greene could not resist one more defiant jab of outrageous whataboutism: “Will we allow the media, that is just as guilty as QAnon of presenting truth and lies, to divide us?”

I wonder whether Greene has ever been told that anything Lester Holt says is read ten or twelve times by editors trying to ferret out anything he might say which is not 100% true and accurate?

Analysis: If Conviction Is Out of Reach, Managers Seek Verdict From Public

I agree Republicans are too corrupt to impartially listen to reason, so the important thing is not to convict Donald Trump but to inform the American people just how wrong & self-serving the Republicans are about not convicting him.

Many Republicans have said they did not see a tight enough connection between the rampage and Mr. Trump’s effort to overturn his loss. Here’s the latest.

Donald Trump is going to be acquitted not because he's guilty or innocent but because the Republican jurors know they will be paid off [by being reelected if they acquit him]. And this is the important point that Americans must be shown by this trial.

Half of Republicans say that the Capitol violence was mostly antifa’s fault

If Republicans won’t convict, bring on the handcuffs.

Therefore "there is no reality" except what we might agree to democratically or get a bump from bumping into it. The problem with "Trump's reality" is that not very many people agree with it; which made him non compos mentis by definition--unless he had managed to become king, of course. Then we might have all become forever imprisoned in his singularly twisted & warped reality, where it doesn't really matter how many unfortunate saps get bumped off.

Voting is a fundamental right at the heart of our democracy, and the notion that individual states should be free to hamper, deter or disenfranchise voters is an obnoxious repudiation of our democracy.

Trump’s Final Days of Rage and Denial

Trump’s ‘Stupid’ Gov. Kemp Call ‘Bordered On Criminality’: Former Senate Leader Harry Reid

Trump is performing his misery [his miserable Last Act] exactly as everyone who was interested in revenge would have loved he would.

I may be naive, but I don't think it would really have occurred to Nixon to become a dictator. Trump, on the other hand, was not only actively trying to become America's dictator but not a benevolent dictator. Had Trump not been such an incompetent moron and become our master he would have unleashed such a bloodbath on the American People the thought of it makes me shudder!

I actually felt pity for Nixon. But, Trump is such an out-and-out unabashed unrepentant criminal that I don't feel the least guilt admitting I am quite enjoying Trump's anguished cries of pain.

The best outcome for this nation is that Trump finally is brought to a proper court of law and is convicted as a rapist and for all his other crimes then sent to prison for the rest of his life. That's probably the only thing that will finally erase his luster in the eyes of his most sick and craven followers.

Donald Trump is hands down the most prolific mass murderer in America's history. He did not simply 'just let it happen' like some unpreventable inevitability out of sheer ignorance or neglect (because he was maybe too busy out playing golf). No. He intentionally directed that it happen for perceived personal gain. And that is the perfect definition of first degree murder--This monstrosity Trump has confessed to not only to Bob Woodward but in countless public statements because Donald Trump is simply too dense to grasp the simple fact that while he cannot be prosecuted for his crimes while in office he can certainly be prosecuted for them after he leaves office. Either that or he was planning to remain in office permanently.

Trump: Millions Of Americans Getting COVID-19 Is ‘Terrific’ And A ‘Powerful Vaccine’

Stricter COVID-19 Precautions Could Have Saved 240,000 Lives So Far, Economist Says -- The U.S. wasted both lives and money in its jumbled approach to COVID-19, economic researchers find.

It was at least the second time Trump demanded Kemp do something to overturn his loss in the state — and the second time the governor turned him down, according to media reports. Kemp explained that he doesn’t have the power to countermand a presidential election in a democracy.

I wonder whether Kemp said he would not do it even if he had the power to? Well, in any case...

Trump is facing financial ruin and perhaps even prison, so it's quite understandable that he should be running around like a trapped rat trying every possible door, window, or painting hanging of the wall... for an exit. More power to him.

Opinion: Republicans may regret their Luddite view of infrastructure

White House could try to pass infrastructure plan without GOP votes

Nothing could characterize more the Republicans as an inconsequential (e.g. unnecessary) party of irrelevant noisemakers more than the Democrats in Congress managing to pass as much of their agenda as humanly possible without any Republican support whatsoever.

And all they have to do is to get Joe Manchin to realize that he is a Democrat. [Which won't easy.]

Opinion: Georgia Republicans can’t admit the real reason they’re restricting voting

They're too stupid to grasp that declaring war on the American people is not the way to get more Americans to vote for them, I know. But in Georgia Republicans' defense: Only intelligent people can admit to being [sometimes] stupid--Stupid people, who are always stupid, can never admit to being anything but 'real smart.'

Really: I cannot for the life of me grasp why the Republicans do not vote wholeheartedly for anything the Democrats propose, since any good/benefits those bills might bring to the nation will probably only begin to bear fruit AFTER Joe Biden's term is over.

Opinion: Arizona Republicans’ desperate crusade to find nonexistent voter fraud

What are Georgia Republicans afraid of?

Same thing all other Republicans across the land are afraid of: That their voters will get wise to them & begin to understand just how much harm they've done to them & how much they're costing them.

Why Was Trump’s Signature Policy Such a Flop?

A lot of his businesses actually started off well (because they were guided by others), but Trump always has to take control of successes so he can claim them his own and that's when he drives them straight into the crapper--upon which he then tries to shift the blame back to the people who had actually make them work (before he put his paws on it) like a toddler claiming he didn't steal the thing he's holding in his hand!
