Still Rising Again after All These Years 0

Thom Hartmann argues Donald Trump and his dupes, symps, and fellow travelers are trying to rewrite the history of the January 6 invasion of the Capitol and points out that whitewashing (I use that term advisedly) is nothing new. Here’s a bit from his article:

Back in the early 1980s, Louise and I moved with our three kids down to Georgia to start a business in suburban Atlanta. The place was growing like a weed and opportunity abounded; we got our little start-up company on the front page of the Wall Street Journal within the second year.

But what I remember most vividly about those years is the answer I got one night at dinner when I asked our kids what they learned in school that day.

“We learned about the War of Northern Aggression,” one said, explaining that the New York bankers were trying to rob people in the South and so the South had to fight back.

This is what happens when history is allowed to be re-written for over a century. And it’s happening again, today.

E. J. Montini writes of local Arizona officials who called out Arizona Governor Ducey for grandstanding at the southwestern border. A snippet (emphasis added):

Likewise, sheriffs from two of the border counties said the Guard wasn’t needed and declined Ducey’s offer of troops.

Sheriff David Hathaway of Santa Cruz County and Sheriff Chris Nanos of Pima County told the governor thanks, but no thanks.

Hathaway said, “We both responded saying, ‘We don’t have a migrant crisis on the border. We do not need to militarize our counties and have troops come to the border.’”

Thom argues that Republicans are trying to sabotage vaccination efforts so as to discredit Democratic candidates. (Frankly, I wish that Thom’s arguments could be harder to credit. But every time you think Republicans can’t go lower, they do.)

In related news, we got our second Pfizer shots yesterday. The process was extremely well-organized, as it was when we got our first shots.

Phoning It In 0

Trump cultist exercises his freedom of screech by making obscene phone calls to his Congressional representative.

We do not have a civil society.

And the incivility has an identifiable source.

Disservice Charge 0

The piper, the piper is calling–to be paid.

In the continuing fallout from the “Kraken” election suits, Wisconsin is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in attorneys’ fees from Donald Trump and Sidney Powell for their attempts to overturn the state’s election results via lawsuits that were “frivolous, dilatory, and without merit.”
