    I don't pay much attention to it. Politics is cyclical though and I can see the Trumpsters coming back. Biden is slipping in popularity because covid restrictions continue and his attempts to deal with it by forcing private businesses to be his vaccine police are not popular.

    If the government switched to treating covid as endemic rather than a pandemic that would do him a lot of good. Stop the mask requirements at Federal buildings, stop the vaccine mandates, reverse the CDC recommendations local public health officials latch onto in order to justify restrictions. Stop the endless testing and quarantining of asymptomatic people.

    Florida with no restrictions is only at substantial level of community transmission right now whereas Massachusetts with many restrictions by local governments is at high rate of transmission. Go figure!

    I can't believe we're (as a nation) not more horrified at it than we are. As far as I'm concerned, they committed treason and should be prosecuted as such.
    "Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasure in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, your heart is also." Jesus

    We’re still in the first innings of this ballgame. People like Steve bannon still haven’t testified before the house commission. At least some of them will undoubtedly have interesting things to say about what happened and what plans were in place.

    And on the civilian track, Marcy wheeler at emptywheel.net has been doing a great job of tracking the individual traitors. That ballgame is still in the early/mid stages as the various justice agencies do their thing and put it all together.

    Will the traitor in chief be held to account? That’s unclear at this point but just like the Lord of the Rings movies* a lot of patience is needed before we get to the good part and see how it all plays out.

    *I still can’t believe the first of those movies won the editing award. I heard that and was like ‘wtf?’ As long as that movie was and the fact that nothing happened are clear indicators that no editing occurred…

    Of course editing occurred. Editing means many many aspects of a film besides making it short. You just mean that you want it shorter. Just like I think J. K. Rowling needed an editor to firmly slash some of the harry potter text.

    Truthfully I’m glad that I hated that movie. I met SO on the night that my friends were going to see the second one. If I’d been going to it instead of Inviting him
    to my home who knows what my life would be today.

    Apparently the dust is still getting stirred up. Today we learned that the traitor in the White House’s family was communicating with the traitors on the ground at the capitol via burner phones bought by the on the ground traitors. Presumably the first traitor family was in in this on they wouldn’t have answered the calls. Is it time to start chanting ‘lock them up. Lock them up’ yet?
