Inauguration Coverage

Joe Biden has been sworn in as President of the Nation Formerly Known as The United States of America. He won the historic first election in which the two leading candidates were arguably the two dumbest men in America — just as his predecessor, Donald J. Trump, had previously won the historic first election featuring the two worst human beings in America. For...

Things Common Sense Tells Us

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election. One can debate about the unreasonable conditions the Democrats exploited to gain an advantage — unconditional early and absentee voting in many states being the most obvious — but it is clear that, pre-established conditions being what they were, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump.  To refuse to accept this is simply to defy and deny the...

Did Trump Incite Insurrection?

Did Donald Trump have a decisive role in inciting and fomenting the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, in which his supporters smashed doors to gain entry to offices, and coercively occupied the office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives?

Yes. Yes yes yes. Obviously, yes.

Did Trump know he was inciting insurrection?

Curtains

An angry mob of complete idiots who want to install a military dictatorship in America, because their god Donald Trump has told them for two months that this is what he wants, are staging the (hopefully) final act in a five-year tragicomedy that has effectively — and intentionally — ended any dreams of a coherent constitutional conservative voice in America for a generation. ...

Begging for the FEMA Camps

In a fit of self-fulfilling prophecy, the Trump cult appears to be trying to put itself on a path to the internment camps their propaganda wing has been fearmongering about for years. If they continue demanding executions for elected Republicans and threatening violence in the streets to overturn a presidential election result they do not like, they may indeed put the U.S. Federal...

2024 GOP Primary Lineup Identifies Itself

A group of nine U.S. senators, including, inevitably, Ted Cruz — the most pathetically compromised man from a state apparently now comprised of nothing but pathetically compromised men — has issued a joint statement declaring their intention to oppose the certification of electoral college votes until the completion of a “ten-day emergency audit” that they have fabricated. In other words, those nine senators...

This Was Always the Way It Had to End

Here is Louie Gohmert, the Trump cult’s new lead spokesman, “explaining” what Trump’s fifty million drooling idiots should do to respond to the inevitable dismissal of his lawsuit against Mike Pence on the grounds, in part, that he has no standing to bring such a suit: “With regard to the standing issue, if a member of Congress who is going to object to...

Exploding Houses

Here is incoming U.S. congressman Burgess Owens explaining his decision to join the Republican challenge to the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory: Owens told The Salt Lake Tribune that he believes President Donald Trump actually won the November election, stating, “There’s no question in my mind that I think he won.” “There is no question in my mind that I think X” — if that means...

The Funniest Thing

For a generation or more, Republicans have built a substantial and ardent, albeit frustrated, grassroots voter base largely on the mantra, implied or directly stated, that the Democrats are trying to shift America toward despotism. The entire array of opinion sources that are generally collected under the term “conservative media” have built their considerable audience on the more explicit form of that mantra....

What Trump Hath Wrought

Today, Louie Gohmert, a Texas congressman often cited by “grassroots Republicans” (aka grass-smoking populists) as some sort of constitutional hero, is leading a new lawsuit claiming that Mike Pence has, and should assert, constitutional authority as Vice President of the United States to decide, in direct defiance of the results of the electoral college vote, “which” electoral college voters ought to be counted...
