No, GQPers, There Was Not a Terrorist Attack on US-Canada Border
A car went airborne and exploded near the New York-Canadian border. After authorities found no explosives or any connections to terrorism, the FBI referred the incident to Niagara Falls police as a traffic investigation. A 56 year old m

With just 12 legislative days scheduled the rest of the year, appropriations bills they can’t pass, a simmering civil war over the last continuing resolution to fund the government, and two more funding deadlines looming, House #GQP are laser-focused on one thing: impeaching President Joe Biden. They’ll figure out what they’re impeaching him over as they go along.

Glad the republicans are out there doing gods work to export our toxic gun culture. Oh, and make sure the revenues come to our gun companies not other "less scrupulous, professional, or conscientious sources"
A group of 46 Rep U.S. senators asked the Commerce Department to answer questions about its Oct. 27 decision to temp stop issuing export licenses for most civilian firearms and ammunition for non-governmental users.
He's already 'messaging' that "OK, I won't run again, but am here until end of term". Nice for lifetime rewards for service, not too great for fairness / #accountability ,

US House panel refers more 'unlawful conduct' by George Santos to Justice Dept
- George Santos "sought to fraudulently exploit every aspect of his House candidacy for his own personal financial profit."
- Santos was a "knowing and active participant in the wrongdoing."
Important detail. If Tr#mp knew that his lawyers were telling other states "Don't let them do what PA's doing" then it's Game Over, Guilty-Time for the disgraced, twice-impeached, 4-times indicted, facing 91 felony charges, GOP candidate for President.

Trump's revenge term?
If Donald Trump wins in 2024 he's going to install a pre-vetted, pro-Trump army of up to 54,000 loyalists across the government, including the military.
Their mission: To carry out his plans for a "revenge term."

What #tfg is saying now is the most concerning things we’ve heard from him. He’s telling us exactly what he plans to do and it's not good. We all just need to listen. And act.
"Every Republican still in the House next year will be forced to run for reelection while possibly supporting a convicted felon at the head the GOP ticket. They will also have to say they believe the lie that the 2020 election was stolen."
There wasn’t much to remember about Tim Scott’s sad, lackluster campaign that lit millions of dollars on fire to not even make it to Iowa. We know his constituents must be glad to know there’s one less excuse for the Senator to miss yet another vote.- DNC spokes.

Clearly a hypothetical, but how would Donald J #TrumpVirus
suspend or leave his campaign as if it were his decision to do so at some point. Whether conditions of home confinement, health issues, or last-ditch effort to avoid prison by pleading 'not guilty by reason of mental incompetency'...
Just a pleasant bit of fantasy, as he can never possibly 'lose' now that he's detailed his regime of retribution, & it plays well with #GQP culti$ts. But...how WOULD he quit?
Too many states are competing for the title of "most antidemocratic."
Extreme gerrymandering, which Republicans are engineering HERE in North Carolina, makes the Republican majority in the #NCGA immune to democracy, denies the will of the people and reinforces racism, misogyny and other evils.

The question remains for #MikeJohnson and others who cite the Bible as their “rule book”: Will they follow the #Constitution when it’s in conflict with their religious views? If not, they should resign.

@dangillmor It continues to amaze me that the far right radicals continue to be called "conservative".

Turns out the No Labels party has a label. Who woulda guessed? Follow the money! Not easy to do for this gaggle of conservative corporatists slyly incorporated as a nonprofit “social welfare” outfit – a deceit that lets it hide the names of its funders from the public.
The New Republic got records revealing that No Labels is a fat cat front, with TX billionaire #gqp Harlan Crow leading the way.
The label is “Harlan Crow.”
I really wish people would stop speculating why so many republicans & Tories & billionaires & far right people are acting the way they are.

"Gish Gallop" caught my eye so I looked it up in wikipedia…
"During a Gish gallop, a debater confronts an opponent with a rapid series of many specious arguments, half-truths, misrepresentations, and outright lies in a short space of time, which makes it impossible for the opponent to refute all of them within the format of a formal debate. Each point raised by the Gish galloper takes considerably more time to refute or fact-check than it did to state in the first place, which is known online as Brandolini's law. The technique wastes an opponent's time and may cast doubt on the opponent's debating ability for an audience unfamiliar with the technique, especially if no independent fact-checking is involved or if the audience has limited knowledge of the topics."
Named after a creationist who would flood the zone with absurdities when arguing against evolution.
