Rep. Greene admits being a sucker

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) as a lot of things to put behind her. For her, banishment from House committees tops the list. Democrats, who disciplined her for publicly advocating violence against Democrats, are now a minority. Newly enthroned House speaker Kevin McCarthy had previously promise[...]

You need a bigger castle than this to overthrow the real government

Germany was to be a monarchy again. Until they were arrested last week, they had guns and ammunition, intended to force their way into parliament, handcuff its members, and hold off police. (Sound familiar?) “These so-called Reich citizens are individuals … who don’t recognise the [...]

How the GOP’s theocratic fringe sees America

Doug Mastriano, the GOP nominee for Pennsylvania governor, is the tip of the theocratic movement’s political spear for now. He’ll probably be soundly beaten in Tuesday’s election, if polls are believed, and if that happens his future status in the movement is unclear. Americans lov[...]

Deranged QAnon Trumper even shot the dog after shooting his family

A QAnon Trumper driven insane by Trump’s 2020 election defeat shot his wife and daughters, then shot the family dog, too. Igor Lanis, 53, of Walled Lake, Michigan (a Detroit suburb), was killed by police when he shot at them, too. His wife, Tina Lanis, 56, died at the scene from multiple handg[...]

The Hunter Biden laptop trail

The purported Hunter Biden laptop, and at least some of the salacious material on it, apparently are authentic, Mother Jones says (in a story here). But the Chinese connection alleged by Trump backers is fake. “The effort to publicize compromising emails, images, and videos from the device in[...]

Garbage candidates are elected by garbage voters

Mark Finchem wants to run Arizona’s elections. Currently a state representative, he’s seeking an upgrade to secretary of state (story here). He shouldn’t be allowed to get within a country mile of that office. Not because he’s endorsed by Trump, but because of what he is. Fin[...]

Getting to know Ashli Babbitt

To Trump and his followers, Ashli Babbitt is a martyr who gave her life to “Stop the Steal” (not voluntarily, it should be noted). But what was this mythical, heroic figure like in real life? Ashli had left the military in 2016 after a combined 14 years in the Air Force and Air National [...]

You’re no patriot, take a timeout

Cleveland Meredith Jr., 53, arrived in Washington D.C. from Georgia too late to join the Capitol riot because his car broke down, which is a good thing, because he had and assault rifle, handgun, and thousands of rounds of ammunition with him (photo below). So he holed up in a motel about a mile fro[...]

The madness of QAnon crowds

It began November 2, when “hundreds of QAnon supporters gathered in Dallas at the site of John F. Kennedy’s assassination because they believed that John F. Kennedy Jr. would appear and announce the reinstatement of Donald Trump as president.” (See story here.) John F. Kennedy Jr. was [...]

Waiting for salvation from the sky

In the QAnon cult’s latest spasm of mass hysteria and collective stupidity, followers are gathered today in Dallas’ Dealey Plaza waiting for John F. Kennedy Jr., killed in a 1999 plane crash, to descend (or be lowered) from the heavens and restore Trump to his rightful place in the White[...]
