For help on how to follow a comic title,
Perhaps I should have worded things differently. Thanks for pointing that out. I should have said that the press found that the demolition of the statues was a constant theme, whereas the plight of people who are suffering are not “news”. I should not have inferred that the world didn’t care; the people with the cameras and microphones didn’t seem to care as much.
please change to “Senate OR the courts” in the last paragraph. Apologies.
What about it? I responded to a post noting that Republicans are attempting to defund the police. I noted that they are also attempting (and broadcasting their intent) to defund the DOJ.
Of course, that could change if the Dotard is given a second term (thank Joe Manchin if it happens); there will be an increase in funding as the new dictator-for-life will need to get rid of all the vermin, communists, fascists……
Correction: Kavanaugh was not appointed. He was elected, and the election was held even before any Senators even met him.
And the FBI ignored voluntary input from dozens of potential witnesses to Mr. Kavanaugh’s juvenile behavior. I’m sure the House UnAmerican Activities Committee….uh, sorry…the committee investigating government overreach….is ready to hold hearings about this.
There is a major difference in foreign policy. The Dotard made it easy: it was a one-to-one comparison. “If he/she likes me personally, he likes the US, and I like him. If he/she doesn’t like me personally, he/she hates America, and I will do everything in my power to scuttle the relationship between our countries.”
Everything, everything, everything is all about him. That’s why it’s so easy for dictators to play him like a violin. And he so wants to become a member of the Dictator’s Club for Men…..
True. Contrast that with the Kavanaugh hearings, for example, when Mr. McConnell told us that the votes were there before the hearings started. E pluribus unum.
When authors go to book-signings, they are expected to have their books on sale at the same venue, and expected to bring a certain minimum amount (by contract) in order to ensure availability to all who want them. Makes sense to me.
Contrast that to the quarter-million-dollar RV that the Thomases got with a “loan” that seems to never have been paid back, while Mr. Thomas tries to sell his “I’m an everyman because I like to camp in an RV”.
And it appears plenty of commenters are lining up with their spoons….
Goose, meet gander. How many groups has the Dotard slandered, derided, and ascribed hateful motives about? How about the idea that protesters should be shot, or that the Constitution should be ignored, or that his new regime would center on political revenge?
That speech is pretty inflammatory, and gets a lot more violence as a response; don’t forget “If you don’t fight (used the word ‘fight’ more than 20 times in that speech), you won’t have a country anymore.”
And the rioters? “You’re very special….”
Good question. There’s that old assumed-innocent-until-proven-guilty thing that many Congress-people want to uphold. That’s why the vote to remove Santos failed last week.
But then the Ethics committee, chaired by a Republican, stated clearly that Mr. Santos is definitely guilty of more than what he has been charged with. Should we wait until he is convicted in a court of law? Good question again. The Republican head of the Ethics committee has himself introduced a motion to have Mr. Santos removed.
In contrast, I see nothing from the Senate Ethics committee about Mr. Menendez. I have no doubt he’s guilty as sin, and I’m not happy he’s there now. There hasn’t been such flagrant payoffs since Rep. Jefferson from Louisiana was caught with $96,000 in his freezer, and Mr. Jefferson was not acting as a non-registered foreign agent.
I do hope that a similar conclusion arrives from either the Senate of the courts and that Mr. Menendez is shown the door as well.
