The Trump Presidency...

The seditionist Republican version of the Marx Brothers have apparently been showboating their support for traitors at the prison.

A group of GOP lawmakers was turned away from a Washington DC prison as they attempted to inspect the conditions of Capitol rioters in custody.

Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene were among the group warned they were trespassing and obstructing the entrance to the correctional facility.

The pair live-tweeted their attempt, along with Louie Gohmert and Paul Gosar, to make contact with prisoners held on charges related to the 6 January attack on the Capitol.


MTG is just a special breed of thicko.
 
“It’s not every day that people are locked out of prison”

Yes it is Matt. They don’t let anyone just walk into a prison
If they turned up at my work unannounced they'd be refused access too, and no amount of "do you know who I am?" would make any difference. Twats.

The making of Madison Cawthorn: How falsehoods helped propel the career of a new pro-Trump star of the far right​

Cawthorn has emerged as one of the most visible figures among newly arrived House Republicans, who have promoted baseless assertions and pushed a radicalized ideology that has become a driving force in the GOP

1627665677400.png

Madison Cawthorn was a 21-year-old freshman at a conservative Christian college when he spoke at chapel, testifying about his relationship with God. He talked emotionally about the day a car accident left him partially paralyzed and reliant on a wheelchair.

Cawthorn said a close friend had crashed the car in which he was a passenger and fled the scene, leaving him to die “in a fiery tomb.” Cawthorn was “declared dead,” he said in the 2017 speech at Patrick Henry College. He said he told doctors that he expected to recover and that he would “be at the Naval Academy by Christmas.”

An accident report obtained by The Washington Post said Cawthorn was “incapacitated,” not that he was declared dead. Cawthorn himself said in a lawsuit deposition, first reported by the news outlet AVL Watchdog, that he had been rejected by the Naval Academy before the crash.

Shortly after the speech, Cawthorn dropped out of the college after a single semester of mostly D’s, he said in the deposition, which was taken as part of a court case regarding insurance. Later, more than 150 former students signed a letter accusing him of being a sexual predator, which Cawthorn has denied.

Yet four years after Cawthorn spoke at the chapel, the portrait he sketched of his life provided the framework for his election in November as the youngest member of the U.S. House at the minimum age of 25 years old. A campaign video ad repeated his false claim that the car wreck had derailed his plans to attend the Naval Academy.

He promptly used his newfound fame to push baseless allegations about voting fraud on Twitter in a video viewed 4 million times, which President Donald Trump retweeted, saying, “Thank you Madison!”

Then Cawthorn spoke at the Jan. 6 rally where a mob was incited to storm the U.S. Capitol, again alleging fraud and extolling the crowd’s courage in comparison with the “cowards” in Congress. He returned to the Capitol, where he falsely claimed that insurrectionists had been “paid by the Democratic machine.”

Cawthorn won his campaign with a brief résumé that included working at a Chick-fil-A, a part-time role in a congressional office, the single semester of college and fledgling work as a real estate investor. He was boosted by a last-minute $500,000 blitz by a political action committee that trashed his primary opponent as a “Never Trumper,” which the opponent said was false. Cawthorn’s campaign website said Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who is Black, wanted to “ruin” White males running for office, an assertion Booker denounced as “rank racism.”

It been very quiet about the Senate hearings about 6 January, and the testimonies of the Capitol police



Or if you don’t fancy watching 4 hours of streaming there are extracts complete with Fox’s thoughts & laughing at testimony


I would gladly pay over and over to see someone smack Tucker Carlson in the face.
 
I find it hard to think of any civilised country in which the jokers referenced above would even remotely be thought suitable for election to government.

Sure we get the occasional protest vote/single issue/strong local support oddball in Europe and elsewhere but nothing like the number of deranged despicable scumbags they get in America.
 
Just to add something to the last post.

Just read Cawthorn's Wiki entry and this caught my eye:

U.S. Representative Mark Meadows nominated Cawthorn to the United States Naval Academy in 2014, but his application was rejected before his 2014 car accident; Cawthorn had claimed during his congressional campaign in advertisements that the accident "derailed" his plans to attend the Academy. Cawthorn subsequently said that at the time of the injury, he knew only that he had been nominated to the Academy and that he had expected to be accepted, and added that he never said that he had been accepted before the accident took place, but could have applied again later.But in a lawsuit deposition, Cawthorn admitted that he had been rejected before the accident.
During the fall 2016 semester, Cawthorn attended Patrick Henry College, studying political science, but earned mostly D grades and dropped out. He said his grades were low primarily because his injuries had interfered with his ability to learn. Cawthorn said in a deposition, "You know, suffering from a brain injury after the accident definitely I think it slowed my brain down a little bit. Made me less intelligent. And the pain also made reading and studying very difficult." He also said he withdrew due to "heartbreak" after his fiancée broke up with him​
Re the first bold it is amazing how so many of these Trumpettes make wild and lurid claims but categorically refuse to back them up when confronted with making a legal deposition or affidavit.

With respect to the second bold I guess you get what you vote for - a self confessed mentally retarded mong. He probably got D grades because he is thick as pigshit and spent all his time molesting women.

It does at least answer the question of how Republican voters feel they can engage better with their candidates. If I was a racist, child molesting, mental pygmy, I too would look to the GOP to get in touch with like-minded individuals.

Cawthorn is a deluded child with a passion for authoritarianism, but Greg Abbott is an absolute extremist loony tunes who just happens to be the governor of Texas. Other than racism and right wing extremism, the common factor is they are both in wheelchairs. Obviously the GQP has a bit of a soft spot for mental illness when combined with physical disability.

“He couldn’t possibly be a fascist, he’s in a wheelchair”.
 
The Arizona audit seems to be going well.


Even the AZ republicans are now realising the whole thing is a complete and utter shitshow and has been from Day 1.

The Trumpettes (Flynn, Powell etc) have coughed up $5.7million to Cyber Ninjas, who must be pissing themselves laughing as they wheelbarrow dollars to the bank.

Trumpy Bear (deceased) - the gift that keeps on giving. This thread will provide amusement for years.

Still, only two weeks before he is back in power (assuming the British CGS can spare him from his arduous task of commanding the British Army - © Dipso Fucktup).
 
I can't see much in the news about Trumpy Bear's first day back in the White House.

What have I missed?
You are on the wrong media platform. You should be on GETTR with all the other cool kids.


Abu- AL Throatslitter, an ISIS spokesman said:
"After a hard days rape, pillage, screaming "Death to the Jews and Infidels", it is good to have a social media platform that does not judge our healthy, indeed Allah blessed, activities. It is refreshing to meet and discuss your day with other xenophobic, misogynistic, homophobic racist religious madmen with gun fetishes who hate democracy and the American way of life.
But there is just something about Trump supporters that just makes you feel so soiled..."
 
Grifter gotta grift


Just days after his defeat last November, Trump launched a new political action committee, dubbed Save America, that together with his campaign and the Republican National Committee quickly raked in tens of millions of dollars through text and email appeals for a Trump “election defense fund”, ostensibly to fight the results with baseless lawsuits alleging fraud.

The fledgling Pac had raised a whopping $31.5m by year’s end, but Save America spent nothing on legal expenses in this same period, according to public records.

37 Texas Counties Show Voting Discrepancies, but Not Enough to Alter 2020 Election Outcome.

Newsweek Link. BY JULIA MARNIN ON 8/2/21 AT 10:46 AM EDT


A statewide analysis reveals that 37 Texas counties show voting discrepancies in the 2020 election but not enough to change the outcome of President Joe Biden's win, the Associated Press reported.

Researchers from the University of Florida conducted the analysis in Texas' 254 counties and found mistakes in both Republican and Democratic counties. Former President Donald Trump was listed by the Texas secretary of state as receiving 5,890,347 total votes but got 223 more, according to the findings. Meanwhile, Biden's listed total was 5,259,126, but he received 155 more.

The research adds to a pile of evidence that contradicts the belief, widespread among Republicans, that elections in Democratic areas are rife with errors, irregularities and mismanagement. While errors in the tally do occur, research shows they tend to be random and small scale and do not benefit one party or the other.

Election researchers from the University of Florida added or subtracted a handful of votes from various candidates with no skew toward one party or the other.

Minor mistakes like the Texas ones are relatively common, say election experts. In Texas, the errors are likely due to the state's use of an older computer system that requires counties to enter their tallies by hand, increasing the risk of errors when the wrong digit is typed.

Supreme Court’s Sinking Popularity

And it's just about the only thing we can agree on in this country.

By KATHRYN RUBINO
onAugust 2, 2021 at 12:12 PM

According to a new Gallup poll, only 49 percent of Americans approve of the job the Supreme Court is doing.

In addition to the 49 percent that approve of the Court, 44 percent of respondents said they disapprove of the job Supreme Court’s doing, while 7 percent said they had no opinion. This is a lower approval than the historic averages, and the lowest approval in four years:

For most of Gallup’s trend, dating back to 2000, more Americans have approved than disapproved of the way the Supreme Court was handling its job, with approval usually above the majority, averaging 52%.

But the interesting part is that this lower approval rating is uniform betwixt political parties:

Americans give the Supreme Court its lowest job approval rating in four years. But unlike in 2017, when wide party gaps in ratings of the court drove its approval below 50%, today Republicans and Democrats view it similarly. Bare majorities of both parties approve of the high court, perhaps because it has handed down rulings that have alternately pleased and frustrated both sides of the ideological spectrum.


So, basically the only thing Democrats and Republicans agree on is that the Supreme Court isn’t doing a great job. Yay?
 
Case in point: the total number of unique encounters at the Southern border to date this fiscal year remains below the total number of unique encounters to date during fiscal year 2019 under the Trump Administration.


A weirdly over specific metric that one, isn’t it?

You can always tell you’re being deliberately misled when a democrat uses a weirdly specific metric.

You know, a bit like “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”


Facts are that the total number of stops has rocketed, however Thirty-eight percent of encounters in May 2021 were individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months, compared to an average one-year re-encounter rate of 15 percent for Fiscal Years 2014-2019.

So all you’ve managed to prove is that not only has there been a huge spike in total number of people trying to cross the border, but that the new policy appears to be that if you do successfully catch them, then you just let them go free to try again, and again, until they are successful.
