Posted in: Visiting Texas to see border wall, Trump takes no responsibility for Capitol riot See in context

Since this is a story about Texas, here are a couple of noteworthy Texans' opinions of Trump:

I’m gonna tell you what I really think of Donald Trump: 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.

--Ted Cruz

and

[Trump] offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.

--Rick Perry

Oops. I mistook the past for the present.

The Republican Party took that road to perdition, with both Cruz and Perry along for the ride, and here they are today.

Obama has imposed the largest tax increase in history on the middle class. Individuals who don't buy insurance

Would you prefer a plan where insurance and health care cost nothing?

Trump and the GOP have had four years to replace the ACA. They've offered nothing. Give them the boot.

Praying for a Warnock and Ossoff win!

A fifth guard, Jeremy Ridgeway, pleaded guilty and testified against the others,

Ridgeway is the one guy who didn't get a pardon from Trump.

Posted in: Cruz leads Republican drive to object to Biden's win See in context

for 4 years the Democrats did everything to foil and sabotage this President 

If you can't grasp the difference between evidence-based investigations, due process, and legislative resistance (on the one side), and utterly unsubstantiated, judicially unsupportable attempts to cancel the results of a presidential election because Donald Trump can't handle losing (on the other side), you're beyond hope of being enlightened. Which I've known for a long time anyway.

The Dems didn’t care about democracy (according to the GOP)

News flash. No serious Republicans in leadership or media (McConnell, Nunes, Hannity, Limbaugh, Carlson included) ever actually believed this, but they sure had fun making MAGA heads think it was true.

Trump never met an American tough guy war criminal he didn't admire, especially ones who worked for Trump/Kushner/Putin associate and arms dealer to the UAE Erik Prince.

Posted in: Cruz leads Republican drive to object to Biden's win See in context

Here's the sophistry from lyin' king Ted Cruz (debating wiz!) and his gang:

1) Trump claimed and continues to claim that the election was fraudulent.

2) Millions of Trump worshippers believe this unsubstantiated nonsense.

ergo 3) Because millions believe this unsubstantiated nonsense, we must throw out the results of this election, except in the states where Trump won, and in the races Republican congressional candidates won.

Cruz and Hawley are supposedly well educated and "smart". Shame on them. There's something in the Bible about misleading dumb people--people like Marsha Blackburn (B.S. Home Economics) and Tommy Tuberville (B.S. Physical Education) who somehow ended up as senators.

Kanda Myojin and other popular shrines could have simply shut down this New Year. But they love their money more than the lives of strangers. Totally irresponsible.

Other large events have been canceled, with the hosts taking a hit. You'd think a religious institution would have more sense of public service.

This is just utter garbage, when we talk about socialism we are talking about it in terms of completely replacing the capitalist model

@bass

I remember well that in the past you called Trump “socialism lite”. Before he got the nomination and you jumped on the bandwagon.

Do you still think that Trump is a bit of a socialist?

Trump is correct about his own party. It is weak and tired.

Time for Georgia MAGA heads to vote for Warnock and Ossoff. Perdue and Loeffler are deep state elitists who need to be purged from the farm.

You are filled with unfaltering adoration for the guy

Yup!

Here's the heart of the problem. We've got millions of people in the U.S. who have some weird admiration for this con artist. And the more these MAGA ditto heads love him, the more Republican politicians feel they just HAVE to kiss this con artist's back side. No matter how insane the behavior.

Does anyone actually believe that Trump is objecting to this bill because of some principled stand he's taking? That he cares deeply for the American public? Nah, not even magadittoheads believe that. No, this is just another of many of Trump's litmus tests. Are MY people in congress, MY judges, and MY cabinet sufficiently loyal to ME?

Trump cultists love this stuff. Makes them feel reassured to be part of the tribe.

All of law enforcement snd all of the fossil fuel workers and UAW workers just suddenly switched their votes and decided to just vote for Biden...yeah, sure....lol

Who said they suddenly switched their votes? You have evidence that this happened?

Occam's razor: the explanation that's right in front of your nose. Mail-in ballots were counted last, as decided by the state legislatures ahead of time. More Democrats voted by mail, which everyone already knew. Urban areas have more ballots to count. Urban areas tend to be more Democratic.

No mystery here.

Trump lost. Suck it up. It's reality.

Loeffler, who is being challenged by Warnock, reiterated her campaign's assertion that the pastor is a radical and socialist.

Warnock is correct. Loeffler has nothing to run on but hackneyed one-liners: socialism this radical left that. MAGA yadayadayada.

I sure hope the Democrats can pull this off.

I hate this kind of hypocrisy, and these Democratic leaders should be ashamed of themselves.

But you know what I hate even more? Leaders who encourage and host superspreader events. Leaders who tell people NOT to wear masks, social distance, or take the virus seriously.

So sure, Republicans are less hypocritical, but their macho political posturing has caused a lot more death.

Him being allowed to fight for what he and millions think is an injustice whether he prevails or not is democracy in its purest form.

Democracy in its dumbest and most destructive form.

Trump is allowed to be dumb. His followers are allowed to be dumb. But the fact is they have not a shred of evidence to back up their assertions.

Parler will become the Radio Shack of social media platforms. Impossible to sustain a large enterprise targeted at such a narrow demographic.

Liberals are the real funny joke of jokes. Sadly, their policies make you want to cry.

Do you find the following to be sneering as well?

The Texas lawsuit is widely considered a longshot to succeed. Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, a Republican, previously panned the Texas suit as fundamentally "wrong." 

"With all due respect, the Texas Attorney General is constitutionally, legally and factually wrong about Georgia," a Carr spokesperson told the Dallas Morning News. Carr is the recently named chairman of the Republican Attorneys General Association.

America will never see a normal election again. Trump has sowed the seeds of distrust and discord well.

Neither party will benefit. But Trump will come out of it all stronger than ever.

I hope the President pushes this to the bitter end, if the Dems can make his Presidency difficult for 4 years, Trump can do the same for 4 weeks.

That's the patriotic spirit!

fyi, Democrats were working with loads of evidence against a con man who is cognitively, psychologically, and ethically unfit to be president. Trump is working with no evidence whatsoever. That's the way it is. I don't care what your "70+million" believe.

Why the Dems want to further damage the nation is extremely upsetting to watch

Say what? Is it the Democrats who are contesting the election now?
