Sedition

Treasonous Humbugger


The House Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection and coup attempt has issued four criminal referrals of Donald Trump to the Department of Justice. Donald Trump’s initial reaction to this is, “Bah humbug…have you seen my NFT trading cards?”

Trump “truthed” out that the committee is partisan and what doesn’t kill him makes him stronger, bwahahahahaha,” and then followed that with multiple other “truths” full of lies, too numerous to mention here.

The thing is though, the committee is actually bipartisan. Trump and his fellow GOP goons believe it’s partisan because no seditious sycophants are on it. And Trump can’t claim the committee is lying to anyone who has actually paid attention. The charges are very detailed and specific.

The committee is referrals include insurrection, obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the United States, and conspiracy to make a false statement.

Other than the power of persuasion, the committee’s referrals don’t hold actual power. At the most, these referrals may pressure DOJ to charge Trump with these criminal acts.

Additionally, Trump lawyer John Eastman is also slated to be referred for obstruction of a congressional proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States. The report also cites members of Congress who failed to comply with subpoenas issued to them, which the committee will refer to the House Ethics Committee for further action. This includes House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, and Scott Perry.

It is extreme for a congressional committee to issue criminal referrals for a former president (sic), but it’s also extreme for a president (sic) to deny a peaceful transfer of power and attempt an insurrection to cling to stay in the White House.

The facts are that Donald Trump tried to stay in office after losing an election, used his office to intimidate election officials to give him “votes,” created a fake slate of electors, pressured the vice president to disobey the Constitution and deny certification of the Electoral College, and disrupted an official proceeding with a terrorist attack on Congress by white nationalist MAGAts. As if that wasn’t enough, he engaged in witness tampering during the committee’s investigation.

What will Jack Smith, the Special Counsel investigating Trump on multiple counts, do with the referrals? For all we know, he made up his mind on each of these weeks ago. None of these accusations are new. I hope Smith goes for all four and then some…or then a lot more.

Donald Trump is a criminal. He’s a bad guy. We can’t just prosecute the MAGAt minions and let the crime boss get away. Justice and the rule of law demand that Donald Trump be prosecuted.

Friends in Low Low Low Low Low Low Places


Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and his colleague Kelly Meggs were found guilty yesterday of seditious conspiracy by a jury after a two-month federal trial. They were also found guilty of obstruction of an official proceeding, along with fellow Oath Keepers Jessica Watkins, Thomas Caldwell, and Kenneth Harrelson. These charges stem from the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, in order to stop Congress from certifying the election of Joe Biden, overthrow the government, and install Donald Trump as an unelected Oompa Loompa Cheeto-stained dictator.

Prosecutors say Rhodes acted as a “battlefield general” during the riots, and was also found guilty of tampering with documents or proceedings.

In order to be convicted of seditious conspiracy, prosecutors must prove that two or more people conspired to “overthrow, put down or to destroy by force” the US government, or that they planned to use force to oppose US authority. There were definitely more than two people involved in this conspiracy. A third person tweeted for them to come to Washington on January 6, 2021, promising it was “going to be wild.” That same person also gave them a speech before the riot, instructing them to “walk” to the Capitol.

The charge of seditious conspiracy was first created during the Civil War era to stop southerners from fighting against the U.S. government. It’s an extremely rare charge and the Justice Department is reluctant to use it. This was the first conviction of seditious conspiracy in the United States since 1995 when 10 Islamist militants were convicted for trying to plant bombs at New York City landmarks.

These five Oath Keepers are just a few of the over 900 MAGAts who have been arrested in connection to the insurrection on January 6, 2021.

The Oath Keepers were looking for trouble on January 6. They stashed weapons in a Virginia hotel room with plans to retrieve them in the event of massive disorder. Defense attorneys argued that the Oath Keepers were only there to preserve the peace and protect people inside and outside the Capitol from the riot they help start.

In multiple encrypted chat conversations before the riot, Rhodes expressed hope that Trump would invoke the Insurrection Act, which he believed would “nullify” D.C. gun laws and all other restrictions on violent behavior.

The jury got to see a text sent from Rhodes to his followers during the riot saying, “Rise up in insurrection”. In case you’re a Republican, the text did not say “rise up in tourism.”

These were not tourists as some Congressmen, who ran for their lives on January 6, have claimed. These were terrorists encouraged, invited, and instigated by Donald Trump, who told them to be in the capital on January 6 to stop the certification, tweeting that it was “going to be wild.” Twitter banned Trump for using their platform to coordinate a terrorist attack but after purchasing it, Elon reinstated Trump in the belief that rounding up white nationalist terrorists to overthrow the government is free speech.

This verdict is vindication for the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland as it shows these investigations are NOT political or designed to go after people merely for being conservatives or Trump supporters. It also shows that it’s not a political attack against President Biden’s potential opponent in 2024. These goons were found guilty by a jury of their peers.

Just as the Shoe Bomber wasn’t charged and prosecuted because he’s Muslim, January 6 insurrectionists are not being persecuted because they’re Trump supporters. They’re terrorsists.

Now, as the newly-appointed Special Counsel investigates Donald Trump’s involvement in the coup, among other things, the event on January 6, and the attempts to steal the election in the days and weeks before the attack, can now be described in court as sedition.

Donald Trump knew he lost the election. Members of his staff have testified he was told this. There was no way Donald Trump honestly believed he won the election. He’s just a liar. He knew he lost and he knew his attempts to reverse the outcome were illegal. Donald Trump knew he was committing sedition.

Like he did with Holocaust-denying white supremacist Nick Fuentes who was Kanye West’s companion for dinner at Mar-a-Lago, I’m sure Trump will claim he doesn’t know who the Oath Keepers were, even though Rhodes was in contact with the Secret Service at least before January 6, and also with Trump pal and pardon recipient Roger Stone on the day of the attack. Rhodes may have been passing messages to Trump through Stone.

Rhodes and Kelly can receive sentences of up to 20 years after being convicted of seditious conspiracy. I hope Trump receives the same. And then Trump can have lunches every day with white supremacists and Holocaust deniers.

Music Note: I listened to The Verve Pipe, and not just the song “Bittersweet Symphony.”

Update: My friend Quannah informed me that I was listening to The Verve and NOT The Verve Pipe. I’ve been confusing those bands for each other for over 30 years. The Verve is a British band and Verve Pipe are American. Or was Verve American and the Pipe Verve British? Shit.

Trump Redacted


Republicans, MAGAts, goons, and troglodytes have been clamoring for the release of the affidavit that led to the FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago earlier this month, believing it would prove the “raid” was political, personal, illegitimate, and illegal. You know, all the things they’ve claimed without any proof. And they got it.

Yesterday, the Justice Department released a redacted version of the affidavit that clearly spells out that the search warrant of Mar-a-Lago was entirely justified. Republicans of course are putting their bullshit spin on it.

Peter Navarro, who proudly helped Trump attempt to steal the election through a violent coup attempt, claimed it was…wait for it…”cancel culture.” Navarro, who was arrested on contempt of Congress charges for failing to honor a subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee, said, “Redacted means canceled.” No, it does not, you ass-kissing idiot. He further bullshitted with, “OK, so they canceled the affidavit. That’s the most beautiful I’ve ever seen there. That’s like the FBI in your face.” Keep in mind, this goon motherfucker tried to cancel democracy.

John Yoo, a former deputy assistant attorney general, must have heard Navarro’s description of the affidavit as “cancel culture” and thought to himself, I can out-stupid that, and went on Fox News and demanded that all the stolen classified documents the FBI siezed from Trump be…now wait for this shit…declassified.

Yoo said, “Why not declassify the documents they actually took from President Trump and show the public what they were? If the government really feels that this was a national security threat for President Trump to have them, then let’s see them in a sanitized form.”

Three things, one of them I can’t believe I have to explain: declassifying all the documents Trump stole is extremely dangerous, and you would know this if you read the affidavit. I thought Donald Trump had already declassified them. And, don’t you know declassifying them would devalue them on the spy market, thus leading to Trump not getting paid for his treason? That is, unless Trump already got paid. I mean, why did Jared get $2 billion from the Saudis?

Yoo’s stupid-ass call for the documents to be declassified shows that Donald Trump put some seriously unqualified idiots in the Justice Department.

These goons demanded that the search warrant be released. After they got it, showing it was justified, they moved the goal post to “release the affidavit.” Now that they have the affidavit, they’re screaming for the surveillance footage to be released, which Trump claims he has and is threatening to release but hasn’t yet.

These goons knew beforehand the released affidavit would contain a lot of redactions. They’re going to act surprised now? Their reactions show they shouldn’t have any involvement or opinions on classified information, intelligence, or the law.

Elise Stefanik displayed the lickspittle cult worship that earned her Liz Cheney’s leadership position saying, “The American people deserve transparency and not an outrageously, heavily-redacted affidavit to cover up for and politically protect Joe Biden and the FBI for this dangerous and un-American overreach.”

Stefanik promised that House Republicans will “hold Biden’s DOJ and FBI accountable for their blatant weaponization against their political rivals.”

Republican House goon Dan Bishop tweeted, “So much for transparency.”

Don Jr. snorted out a tweet saying the same thing, “So much for transparency.”

Andy Biggs, another House goon, said, “The American public deserves more transparency.”

Transparency, transparency, transparency. They love the word but I don’t think they know what it means.

You want transparency? Then ask Donald Trump why he took the documents. Ask Donald Trump what his plans were with the documents. Ask Donald Trump that if there was a standing order to declassify stuff he took to his residence, then produce the standing order. Sure, the “standing order” document is among those he took, right? If these documents really were declassified by Trump, why? Ask Donald Trump why he needed documents containing the names of CIA informants. Ask Donald Trump, how many foreign officials and nationals have skipped through Mar-a-Lago since January 2021. Ask Donald Trump to be transparent.

Also, since you guys are so horny for transparency, then have every Republican House member and Trump supporter testify before the Jan. 6 Committee they have asked for. Hmm?

Despite the redactions, the released affidavit shows exactly why the search warrant was acquired, granted, and why the search was conducted.

The affidavit shows that the National Archives and Department of Justice were seeking to retrieve documents Trump took, and believed Trump still had highly-classified documents after he returned 15 boxes. It shows a letter from Trump’s lawyers that show they knew he might still have some classified documents that did not belong to him.

The affidavit shows that after receiving a second batch, witnesses informed DOJ that Trump was still hoarding sensitive documents that didn’t belong to him.

It shows that in the first batch returned in January, agents found 184 documents that were marked classified, 92 of which were marked “SECRET” and 25 of which were marked “TOP SECRET.” This shows that at the very least, Trump stole and improperly stored classified documents.

The classification markings the documents carried suggested that some could reveal clandestine human intelligence sources and others were derived from national security surveillance. Some materials were marked “NOFORN,” meaning they cannot be legally shared with a foreign government, and others “SI,” an abbreviation for special technical and intelligence information related to surveillance of foreign communications.

In its request for a search warrant of Mar-a-Lago, DOJ wrote, there is “probable cause to believe that evidence of obstruction will be found.” Finding any documents after Trump and his lawyers said they had all been returned proves there was obstruction of justice and that they were all liars. Lawyers lose law licenses for lying. People go to jail for lying to the FBI.

The affidavit described classified documents being found in multiple locations around the golf resort where Trump, his aides, members, and guests mingle.

Some of the documents retrieved in January were marked “HCS,” for Human Intelligence Control System. Such documents have material that could possibly identify C.I.A. informants, meaning a general, sweeping declassification of them would have been, at best, misguided.

I ask again, why would Trump need or declassify such documents? Releasing the names of informants could set intelligence back years and get people killed. What are his reasons for possessing these documents that named informants?

Fun fact: During the Trump years, the CIA sent a memo to all of its bureaus and agents that there was a rise in informants being killed by their governments. Hmm. Wonder why that was.

Some of the documents were marked FISA, indicating information collected under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Glenn Gerstell, the former general counsel of the National Security Agency, said, “What this tells us is that there was possibly something from human beings, from spies, possibly something involving foreigners who are the only ones targeted under FISA and potentially there is very sophisticated sensitive information involved here.”

Gerstell explained (pay attention, goons), “One of the reasons they need to get these documents is to understand what is in there for the purpose of conducting a damage assessment. We have surveillance tapes and we will see who had access. But the government also needs to see the documents so they can know what might have been compromised.”

The affidavit clearly shows the search of Mar-a-Lago was justified. Republicans are complaining about the parts that are redacted while not reading and comprehending the parts that are not redacted.

Here’s what’s not redacted: Donald Trump is a seditious thief who broke the law and should be indicted and eventually placed in federal prison.

Trojan President


CjonesRGB02042022

One of the failed plots in Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election and become the United States’ first dictator was to seize voting machines.

A new report in The New York Times reveals that Donald Trump considered ordering three different government agencies to seize voting machines before the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

First, Trump tried to convince his Attorney General William Barr that the Justice Department had the authority to seize voting machines. Despite arguments from goons like Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn, Barr told Trump the Justice Department has zero authority to seize voting machines.

You know it’s a really bad idea when Trump’s personal defender, William Barr, wouldn’t go along with it. Barr bailed on this shit show a month before his term was to expire.

Next, there was the idea of using the military to seize voting machines, which was advocated by disgraced general and Putin stooge Michael Flynn. This idea was so bad that even Rudy Giuliani was against it. This is like the time I ordered anchovies on a pizza and even my dog, an animal that would lick his own butt, wouldn’t touch it. Rudy’s the dog here and has been known to lick Trump’s butt. Rudy went along with Italian satellites, bamboo ballots, George Soros and Hugo Chavez meddling, corrupt voting machines, and appointing Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate voter fraud, but ordering the military to seize voting machines was the anchovies on that shit pizza.

The third try was to get Giuliani to call the Department of Homeland Security to seize voting machines, but that agency too denied the requests.

This scheme was to seize the machines so they could claim they were corrupt and use that argument to convince swing states to name alternative electors, giving their states, that President Joe Biden won, to Trump.

There is no secret that Donald Trump tried to overturn the election. He even said so over the weekend stating at one of his hate rallies he wanted Mike Pence to “overturn” the election. He even suggested at the same rally that if he’s reelected, or can steal the 2024 presidential election, he will pardon the white nationalist terrorists who attacked the Capitol on January 6, 2021. And then he promoted “protests” at places that are investigating him.

After the Supreme Court ruled the National Archives had to turn over White House documents requested by the House January 6 committee, the National Archives revealed that some of the 700 documents they sent had been ripped up by Donald Trump.

These documents include diaries, schedules, handwritten notes, speeches, and remarks. There are also reports there are unsigned executive orders that were ripped apart. If this is true, were they orders to seize voting machines? Maybe there were orders we don’t know about yet like every Giuliani fart was to be counted as another ballot for Trump. Wow, Trump did win in a stinky landslide. Maybe there was an order to put anchovies on electors, which would keep anyone from counting them.

It was documented as early as 2018 that Trump liked to rip apart documents. After a meeting with Vladimir Putin where only his and the Russian dictator’s translators were present, Trump destroyed his translator’s notes.

A records management analyst and another staffer for the White House would spend hours using Scotch tape to piece records back together that Trump had torn apart. After the analyst told Trump he needed to stop destroying records, Trump fired both staffers and banned Scotch tape from the White House. Sniffing airplane glue was still allowed.

It’s probably illegal for a president to destroy White House documents…or for anyone to destroy White House documents.

Stephen Gillers, a New York University law professor said destroying White House documents “could be a crime under several statutes that make it a crime to destroy government property if that was the intent of the defendant.” He explained further, “A president does not own the records generated by his own administration. The definition of presidential records is broad. Trump’s own notes to himself could qualify and destroying them could be the criminal destruction of government property.”

Since the documents are government property, and not Trump’s to do with as he wishes, it may still be a crime to destroy them, even if it’s not an attempt to destroy evidence.

Usually, when you destroy documents, it’s because you don’t want anyone to see them. Have you ever sent bank or tax records through a shredder? Why did you do that? Because you didn’t want anyone else to see them. Donald Trump destroyed documents because he was hiding shady shifty shit. There are probably thousands of documents and evidence of Trump’s crimes we’ll never know about. I still want to know what was on those translator’s notes.

I really hope a tally of all of Trump’s crimes is being kept somewhere by very important law enforcement people. It’s been over a year since Trump left the White House. It’s past time for prosecutions to begin on the Trump crime syndicate.

Fox News Knew


CjonesRGB12182021

You may have noticed I draw a lot of cartoons on Fox News. But it’s not my fault. It’s Fox News’ fault. When Fox News stops making itself a part of the news, I’ll stop drawing them.

Here’s the thing, kids: Journalists are not supposed to be a part of the story. Journalists are supposed to tell the story. Legitimate news outlets fire journalists who make themselves a part of the story, which we saw recently when CNN fired Chris Cuomo.

Fox News has been making itself a part of the story since at least 2015 when Trump began running for president. Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Fox News, would have one-on-one meetings with Donald Trump as an unofficial adviser. His employed goons didn’t attend rallies to cover them, but to be a part of the rallies. Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham are two who spoke from Trump’s podium at his hate rallies while journalists from CNN and MSNBC needed security to escort them out of the building. Hannity had late-night strategy sessions with Donald Trump during while he was occupying the White House, which Hannity would use for his show and Trump would use for his messaging (tweeting and barking at rallies).

Fox News was an outlet of the Trump administration which is why a lot of people call them “Trump TV.” It’s why journalists like Chris Wallace are bailing on Fox News.

Fox News is not news.

Now we have learned that it wasn’t just Republicans in Congress texting Trump’s chief-of-staff, Mark Meadows, before and during the attack on the Capitol complex in order to overturn an election and install Donald Trump as a dictator, but TV hosts from Fox News were also texting him.

What’s even more of an outrage is that the Fox News hosts were texting Meadows to try to get Donald Trump to call off his MAGA mob of white nationalists while they were pushing the narrative on air that it was a false flag conducted by Democrats and Antifa. They may have known this was going to happen days before the attack. Don’t forget those late-night Hannity/Trump strategy sessions.

The Trump goons set up an office in a Washington hotel (paid for by Trump supporters) to plan and coordinate the white nationalist attack. Were Fox News hosts in contact with these unsavory individuals during the meetings? We need to know this.

Before Mark Meadows stopped cooperating with the House Committee investigating the white nationalist attack on the Capitol, he gave them documents and text messages. Liz Cheney revealed Monday night that Meadows had received texts from Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, and Laura Ingraham pleading with him to convince Donald Trump to call off his MAGA goon mob of white nationalists. Brian Kilmeade even texted that the rioters are “destroying everything you have accomplished.”

Instead of calling off the mob, Trump was watching the attack on TV and celebrating the insurrection. He praised the racist goons when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called pleading with him to all off the mob that was attacking Capitol Police and defecating in the halls of Congress. Trump told McCarthy that the racist rioters cared more about the election than he did.

Donald Trump refused to call off the mob even when they were storming through the Capitol with nooses while chanting “Hang Mike Pence.”

Even Donald Trump Jr texted Meadows to get his dad to call off the mob. Why didn’t he text his dad directly…or go talk to him since he was probably in the same room as his father? Jr texted Meadows, “He’s got to condemn this shit ASAP!” To be fair, maybe Jr had to text Meadows as his father wasn’t in the habit of listening to him.

Laura Ingraham, who was pushing the Antifa lie on the same day, texted Meadows, “The president needs to tell people in the Capitol to go home. This is hurting all of us.” All of us? That right there shows she and Fox News were a part of the Trump administration. “All of us.” I’m a political cartoonist and even then, there’s no “us” I’m a part of with any politician, campaign, or party.

It also reveals she knew she was lying on the air. That’s a fireable offense. She told her viewers that the rioters were “not all Trump supporters.” She pushed the Antifa bullshit. She also claimed it was only about three dozen people attacking the Capitol.

Laura Ingraham knew she was lying. I repeat, she knew she was lying. Do you realize what an outrage it is for a journalist to go on the air and knowingly report false information? Even Fox News should have an ethical guideline on that which shouldn’t be crossed. Fox News should fire Laura Ingraham. She shouldn’t receive probation or suspension. She should be fired.

Journalists get things wrong all the time but they do not report false information. Not firing Ingraham for this is further proof Fox News is not news but propaganda.

What Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade did is just the same as lying. They knew it was a Trump mob attacking the Capitol. Their texts prove that. Yet, they never mentioned that on air. They never mentioned what was actually happening when they knew what was going on. They never mentioned their contacts with Mark Meadows. They knew this attack was so bad that it even made Don Jr. realize it.

I saw someone post this morning that you know Trump sucks with this when Fox News and Donald Trump Jr are the voices of reason. But they weren’t the voices of reason. If they had any reason they would have made their pleas public instead of constantly defending the man who refused to call off his mob.

Why didn’t Ingraham, Hannity, and Kilmeade make their pleas on the air? If they had done that, Trump would have stopped the mob immediately. It would have put pressure on him. Why didn’t Jr go to a reporter and make the plea? Was he afraid his daddy would cut him off?

Donald Trump didn’t just call of his mob, he instigated it. He tweeted for them to be there. He should be liable for this. If a politician invited al-Qaida to visit New York to check out the skyscrapers and then they flew planes into those skyscrapers, you would hold that politician accountable. Donald Trump invited terrorists to Washington.

Trump invited his terrorists and told them it would be “wild.” He held a rally for his hate mob and told them to go to the Capitol. He said he’d be there with them (which he wasn’t as it would have involved walking). Then he joyfully watched the proceedings on TV ignoring pleas from aides and others to stop the assault. Then, he made a video telling his mob of racist terrorists that he “loved them” and they were “very special.”

The January 6 committee needs to take off the kid gloves and go after these people hard. Subpoena Donald Trump and don’t stop there. Subpoena Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, and Laura Ingraham. Subpoena Trump Jr. Mark Meadows’ texts prove they’re witnesses. Ivanka was a witness so subpoena her too

If the Fox News people want to be a part of the story, then make them a part of the story. Subpoena them.

Also, Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, and Laura Ingraham going to prison for sedition would be a great story.

General Coup-Coup


Cjones06052021

There are news reports that disgraced general and convicted douche canoe and traitor, Michael Flynn, suggested there should be a coup to restore Donald Trump to power. He did not “suggest” there should be a coup in the United States. He endorsed it and said, “It should happen here.”

Flynn was national security adviser for 22 days. President Obama told Donald Trump not to hire Flynn, so Donald Trump hired Flynn…who had lobbied for foreign nations and been paid by Vladimir Putin for appearances in Russia. Flynn was fired for lying to Mike Pence and later pled guilty to two counts of making false statements and agreed to cooperate…then flipped on his flip and cried to have his guilty plea reversed. Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, tried to get courts to drop what his department pushed for and ultimately, Donald Trump pardoned Flynn.

After the election, Flynn endorsed martial law, suspending the Constitution, and silencing the media to overturn the election. He also pledged an oath to Qanon. Now, he’s on the Russian app Telegram crying that he was misquoted about endorsing a coup. Why is he denying this stuff on Telegram? Because Twitter kicked him off their platform for shit like endorsing coups.

This is NOT the first time Flynn has suggested a coup. When he wanted Trump to overturn the election, that would have been a coup. This time, he was at a Qanon fucknut convention, when an audience member asked him, “I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here.” There was a coup in Myanmar.

Flynn replied, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here. No reason.”

Now he’s saying that he said, “No reason it should happen here.” No, fucker. You said. “No reason.” Period. “It should happen here.” That’s like saying “don’t stop” while someone’s touching you in your special place, and later you claim you didn’t like it by saying, “I said, ‘don’t…stop.'”

Congressman and fully-committed Fruit Loop, Screwy Louie Gohmert, was also at the lunatic event and tried to downplay the January 6 insurrection. He defended it by saying the attack on Pearl Harbor and 9/11 were bigger attacks on our democracy. Even if he was correct, that’s not good company. But, those attacks weren’t trying to overturn our government. Take a history lesson, Louie.

One in four Republicans believe in the Qanon theory that Satanic-worshipping lovers of baby back ribs made with real babies are controlling the government and it’s going to take violence to restore the “rightful” leaders of our nation. An opinion poll taken in May says 53% (if in case you’re a Republican, that’s more than half) believe Donald Trump won the election.

Sidney Powell, whose lawyers are using the argument in court that nobody should take her seriously, says there will be a new inauguration, Biden will move out of the White House, and Donald Trump will move back in. Just be glad both men won’t be living in the White House together, which sounds like the premise for a really bad sitcom.

Finally, Donald Trump expects to be reinstated by August. That’s what he’s been telling friends, family, and any squirrels on his golf course who will listen, according to New York Times Washington correspondent, Maggie Haberman.

Donald Trump ordered an attack on our government to overturn the election to reinstall himself to power. Donald Trump weaponized the presidency against his own nation. Instead of apologizing, expressing regret, or even playing dumb, he’s telling friends he’s going to do it again.

While it’s fun to laugh at these goons, we should also be concerned.

Like it or not, Donald Trump is a former president (sic). He has created a cult and his followers obey him and believe anything he says. Proof of this is last January 6. And, the Republican Party is doing everything it can to embrace him. A majority of Republicans, not just racist Qanon maniacs, are willing to destroy democracy for their cult leader.

Republicans don’t love America anymore. It’s all about the cult.

General Flynn should be in prison. Right now, he may be committing new crimes that his previous pardon doesn’t cover. He swore an oath to defend this nation, not attack it with a coup. Donald Trump should be in a prison cell right beside him. It will be safer for this nation to have those two men locked away. They are national security risks.

Republicans would be better off listening to the Cocoa Puffs bird than listening to Trump and his assorted goons. They’re all cuckoo for treason.
