I wish to God every broadcast network, cable network and publication would shout out over and over again how dangerous Trump is to our country. Maybe they really can't believe this is happening in the United States. Perhaps they hope some miracle will help us. What happened to Germany with Hitler is happening here, and the media is being boiled like frogs. It's unbelievable any voter would support this madman. The Republican party is completely owned by this lunatic. As for Tuberville, I have left several messages for one of my senators, John Cornyn (yes, he sucks but he's marginally better than Cruz) complaining about Tuberville. But, let's face it, Tuberville is drunk with power. He's not going to change his mind. Ukraine. Israel. There was a time this country would have been united against this evil. Instead we're fighting Trump and his Republican traitors every freaking day.
I thought Mike Johnson made it clear that he looks to the Bible in order to run the House. Although there are passages devoted to keeping your word (the debt ceiling deal previously agreed to), I guess he can't find those. Moody's downgrade of the US credit rating is also due to Republicans bloating the deficit with tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations and spending all their time ousting and then trying to elect a new Speaker. Of course, they get paid even if the government shuts down.
I don’t believe Tuberville is upholding the promotions over abortion. This is about Trump. He’s a Trump man through and through and it’s been suggested he waiting for another Trump presidency to install loyal military.
I find myself feeling the levels of disgust, anxiety, and frustration that I felt when he was in office. Every day is filled with drama & gross revelations. I can’t do four more years of daily trauma.
If there is anyone still who doesn't understand another term of the orange pustule in the WH is the END of our Democratic Republic those persons are the perpetrators of the destruction, lying about caring. Those people who see no difference between the Democratic and Republican agendas are the ones we need to give the stark info to, all the links Joyce provides for frank dissection of the disasters coming our way if we do not vote blue in any and every election. This isn't going away by itself. Our civic duty is to change hearts and minds, with cool heads and exact facts. Let's get busy folks. This is for all the marbles.
Thank you, esp. for providing coach Tuberville's phone number; I'll call him tomorrow. I think it will be cathartic for me.
Others have joined your warning about the malevolent danger of Trump, including Dan Rather in his Substack post today. But are these warnings reaching the people who need to hear them? We all need to make sure they do. It would be fruitless to attempt to change the minds of brainwashed MAGAts, but the youth and moderates should be our targets, and even many of those friends of ours who do not follow politics closely. Now is the time for them to start, and we must encourage them to do that and to persuade their friends and family to as well.
Democracy certainly is on the ballot in 2024. If Trump is elected, we all have to get ready for a Vengeance 2025 tour. He will be jailing people he wants revenge upon. We should remember he is already responsible for dismantling women's rights.
It’s important to note that once the government re-opens after a shutdown, federal government workers are made whole. Private sector employees who are contractors to the government are not.
On The New York's AG fraud case, a Rule 56 Motion for Summary Judgment on fraud has already been GRANTED against NY Trump Ville. Trump & Sons' had a strict deadline of 20 days to attempt to alter or amend the Judgment if possible at all under Rule 56(e). Defendants must put on a defense, if any, as to intent & materiality issues. Oh ... sorry Trump admitted both in his rant last week. So it is now just a matter of dollar damages ... Bigly damages.
I suspect Tubs motive, as a MAGAT, is preemptive, punishing the military’s leaders for their lack of Trump worship. And those who age out of service will not be around for post 2025 presidential retribution
Thanks for always speaking truth to power and dissecting the issues for us. It's refreshing and I look forward to your posts.
And, thanks for Tub O'shit's office number!!!
Thank you Joyce for girding us for the week ahead. Yes we all need to call Tuberville’s office. That boy’s not subtle in his strategy and knows the harm he does. Johnson needs a call or two also. They telegraph their desire to do harm, and at the very least we can speak out.
Thank you so very much Joyce for sending this fabulously informative piece. I will be calling Tuberville. I too had read Mike Johnson‘s comment to ‘trust us.’ And my thought was “oh please.” While the government is threatened of shutting down, there are some very diligent, hard-working people who will be required to work and represent us with the State Department at APEC and other critical sites around the world. This is so bad even the Republicans are sick of themselves. Most folks on this site know that I don’t tend to make light of anything and I don’t want to at all here. But since you mentioned watching “my cousin Vinny.” Indeed, I have seen the movie and will watch it again. I don’t want to offend anyone at all by offering this suggestion for a funny moment , but I wanted to offer this Randy Rainbow short video on You Tube (less than three minutes). Spoiler alert! It’s in the vein of ‘The Bird Cage.’ Randy does wonderful interviews of the you know who’s. This one is his interview with Mike Johnson “Randy Rainbow Interviews Mike Johnson (2024 Tour Announcement) find it here: YouTube.com/watch?v=_dtT7ZTbVUQ
or got to YouTube.com, search for Randy Rainbow and find ‘Randy Rainbow Interviews Mike Johnson’
Warning: Randy almost says a few curse words, including eff but they are deleted/covered - so if that offends, you might not want watch this one (or any of Randy’s stuff).
And spoiler alert: the most hilarious part of it: Mike Johnson reaches out his hand to shake Randy‘s hand, and Randy refused by holding up his perfectly manicured nails (coral this time ).
ps: please check out his pink campaign hat: ‘Make America More Fabulous’
I just don’t understand the GOP endgame. This is their country too. Tump is incapable of taking care of this sad lot of sycophants not to mention, he doesn’t give a damn about anyone other than himself! WTF
Thank you Joyce.
I shared the article you linked
the first time you posted it
with several people and a couple of family members who, sad to say, have not
been paying attention.
All but 1 responded with shock and fear. I directed them to Heritage Foundation Project 2025.
Not one step back! We must
continue to believe that the
elections of 2024 are going
to be the most important our
country has faced.
