Here's one returning the MAGA salute arguing Trumplican disruption.
( Fox News....of course :rolleyes: )


Former Trump aide makes case for red counties seeking blue state secession to do so: Mistreated and overtaxed
https://www.foxnews.com/media/forme...e-secession-to-do-so-mistreated-and-overtaxed

Sooo....here's another Trumplican arguing for further disruption of our society:

Former Trump national security official Michael Anton made his case for allowing counties in several blue states to essentially secede to form new states or become part of other neighboring ones that better match their socioeconomic values.
In Ohio, we call it gerrymandering. So far it's only done internally, within the state.
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerrymandering )

In the 2020 election, 4 electoral votes from Idaho went to Trump.
7 electoral votes from Oregon went to Biden.

Wouldn't it be handy to simply redraw State boundaries and hand off an advantage to the, then current Federal Administration, by increasing the delegates in a favoring State while decreasing them in an opposing state? Of course it would.


BTW, the Trumplican proposing this was Michael Anton, credited for having been a national security official in the Trump administration.
I wonder who's security he was focusing on..... ;)

This article would have fit as well in the Covid thread, but it's about the scumbag ex-President who's policies and greed initially led to an invasive pandemic in the US with 100's of thousands of unnecessary deaths and likely millions of infections.
Why here?
Because that scumbag is falsely claiming he saved at least 100 million people from certain Covid-19 death.

US settles with Trump admin whistleblower who exposed botched COVID response
https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy...tleblower-who-exposed-botched-covid-response/

IMO, 'botched' is an understatement.
'Orchestrated failure' would be more appropriate.

Bright said he was transferred to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in a "retaliatory demotion" after he warned about the severity of the pandemic and shortages of medical supplies. Bright also fought the administration's push for hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug that Trump repeatedly promoted as a coronavirus treatment despite a lack of evidence that it would be effective.
Even before Covid-19:
Even in the years before the pandemic, according to Bright's complaint, the Trump administration's HHS leadership "pressured Dr. Bright and BARDA to ignore expert recommendations and instead to award lucrative contracts based on political connections and cronyism."
Aside from the bizarre claims by Trump, there was also an issue of his medical advisors.
The voodoo priestess being the most outrageous.



Apparently, it only takes a body count of 4 deaths to describe mass murder.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_murder
The FBI defines mass murder as murdering four or more people during an event with no "cooling-off period" between the murders. A mass murder typically occurs in a single location where one or more people kill several others.
Apparently it doesn't count if the location is a large as a Nation nor the duration an ongoing event. Or that that the body count is 6 figures.
In any other reality, it would look like Trump has been trying to kill us and his supporters want him reinstated.

George Conway at one time accused Trump of 'killing banks' ( bankruptcy issues )
Trump succeeded in doing much more than that.
He became a killer of Civilization.

Here he is as a seditionist with a speech building up to the failed insurrection on Jan 6th

Transcript:
https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/08/politics/trump-january-6-speech-transcript/index.html




And here we are with the same BS kind of lies being spewed today:
Trump estimates 100 million dead from COVID-19 without his vaccine efforts
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-100-million-dead-covid-19-vaccine-efforts

Moderna's novel approach started over a decade ago and Pfizer took no development money from the Trump administration.

The real story behind mRNA.
https://www.statnews.com/2020/11/10...leading-technology-in-the-covid-vaccine-race/


Trump lies and his 'army' of Trumplicans drink his koolaid. It's almost funny if it weren't so deadly.

Who'd ever guess there'd be humor in this thread?

Trump mocked after sending out another bizarre press release asking ‘do you miss me yet?’ in all caps
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump-mocked-sending-another-bizarre-142759809.html

epic.jpg

The responses were epic.

Such as:
“600,000 dead Americans could not be reached for comment,” wrote one user.

“Shouldn’t you be in jail?” asked another.

A chorus of tweets saying “no”, “nope”, and “not even a little bit”, were posted in reply to Ms Harrington’s tweet.

Some questioned whether the release of the statement via a surrogate on the platform was a violation of the Twitter ban.

One user noted: “[The Former Guy] is right where he’s most comfortable. After completely failing in office and losing Congress for his party, he gets to play golf, grift, and take potshots at the good man who’s actually trying to make America great again.”

“What are your plans for fixing this, (censored)? Naw you’d rather grift, complain and beg for attention,” wrote another.


( (y) )

(edit: this one is special lol )
“Lies lies lies. You are not missed,” replied one user to the post with a picture of Mr Trump at a rally captioned “If I lose to Joe Biden, you’ll never see me again.”

“Shouldn’t he be getting ready for his reinstatement?”.

Another posted: “Whatcha wearing for Reinstatement Day? A white robe and hood?”

I guess you can't please everyone, or in this case, perhaps anyone ;)

From Trump to Trump wanna-be's

Ron DeSantis...................

As Florida faces record covid-19 deaths, DeSantis says Biden should follow his lead
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/08/26/florida-desantis-covid-deaths-biden/

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said President Biden has failed to “end covid” and should follow his state’s lead, even as Florida experiences record-breaking cases, deaths and hospitalizations.
DeSantis' solution seems to be...lets all get infected.
And with the high rate of SARS-CoV-2 mutations, that means a likelihood of repetitive infections.

Like Jennifer Aniston posted about Covid-19: What doesn't kill you mutates, and tries again.

I just know this will only irate MrEd all the more, but I think most that have posted here came to realize Trump had mental issues long ago, before Covid infected his noggin.

House probe focuses on Trump's mental health and martial law
https://thehill.com/policy/national...cuses-on-trumps-mental-health-and-martial-law

The trove of documents requested Wednesday by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack shows an interest in former President Trump’s mental health and whether he was considering using the military to remain in power.
In addition to seeking records on Trump’s family members and a long list of former aides, the panel is asking the White House and federal agencies to relay any conversations about removing the former president from office and whether he planned to enact martial law.
The committee is zeroing in on the period from Election Day to Inauguration Day and wants agencies to turn over “all documents and communications relating to the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” which allows the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members to remove the president if they believe he is unfit for office.
Well, that's one way to beat the system, claim insanity :D


His 2024 spiel could be....'Vote for me, you're as crazy as I am' lol!

It seems the GOP is sweating over the phone records of those involved in the January 6th acts of sedition and insurrection.
McCarthy is obviously attempting to withhold evidence.

McCarthy warns companies not to turn over private data of Jan. 6 rioters: GOP majority 'won't forget'
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mc...ata-of-jan-6-rioters-gop-majority-wont-forget

Thompson said last week that the committee would be requesting the records preservation for "several hundred people" as the committee begins its probe into the insurrection, in which hundreds of Trump’s supporters seeking to overturn the election stormed the Capitol, brutally beat police, broke through windows and doors and sent lawmakers running for their lives. The letters do not ask the companies to turn over the records, though the committee could do so in the future.
No doubt, the leader of that event, ex-President Donald J Trump is on that list and Trump supporting GOP leaders are in a panic.

And now it's Marjorie Greene of Qanon fame making threats.
(could it be that she's on that list? lol )

Marjorie Taylor Greene threatened to 'shut down' telecoms companies if they hand over Republicans' phone records to the January 6 commission

https://www.businessinsider.com/mar...nies-hand-data-capitol-riot-commission-2021-9


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed on Tuesday that any telecommunications company that complies with a request to hand over Republicans' messages to the January 6 commission would be "shut down."
..................
Though the committee has not named the members of Congress on the list, sources told CNN that several Republicans including Greene were on it.

Interesting article.
More on the GOP's threats to the business community:

Republicans try to censor big business, LOL
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/republicans-try-to-censor-big-business-lol-211011140.html

Essentially, hide all potential evidence of sedition and insurrection in your data bases or we will destroy you.

Kevin McCarthy:
“If these companies comply with the Democrat [sic] order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States,”

GOP.jpg


Looks more like McCarthy is demanding those businesses refuse legal subpoenas, thus breaking the law.
And McCarthy turns out to be a person of interest lol!

Mark Milley reportedly took action to ensure a 'rogue' Trump wouldn't launch nuclear weapons after Jan. 6
https://news.yahoo.com/mark-milley-reportedly-took-action-164328757.html

Joint Chiefs Chair Gen. Mark Milley was so convinced that then-President Donald Trump had gone into "serious mental decline" after the Capitol riot that he took steps to limit him from going "rogue" and launching nuclear weapons, a new book by Bob Woodward reportedly reveals.

And some people want him re-elected in the future?
:cautious:

Then-CIA director Gina Haspel said the US was 'on the way to a right-wing coup' after Trump lost the election: book
https://news.yahoo.com/then-cia-director-gina-haspel-192920026.html

The former CIA director expressed concern that the US was headed toward a right-wing coup after then President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election, according to a new book obtained by The Washington Post.

The book, "Peril," by The Post's Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, is set to be released next week and documents the chaotic final months of Trump's presidency and the beginning of Joe Biden's term.


Not a shocker.
It does seem shocking that he hasn't been arrested, along with a sizable portion of Congress.

An opinion piece, but imo spot on.

Trump is right about Bush
https://news.yahoo.com/trump-bush-164322731.html

The title doesn't say it all.

But this excerpt does.
Multiple things can be true at once. Trump was a terrible president. He is also correct that Bush was a terrible president, too.
And the article goes on to explain why Trump was correct.
( Nothing new to many of the older TSG members.... all that was discussed in our own TSG debate forum years ago )
