Say what you will about John Bolton, he has succinctly encapsulated the idiocy of Donald Trump’s post-election tantrum of fact free flailing, in one sentence. He said on ABC today, “The Trump campaign simply has no evidence. Their basic argument was this was a conspiracy so vast and so successful that there’s no evidence of it…I really want to know who the people are who pulled this off, we need to hire them at the CIA. The fact is, this is all blue smoke and mirrors.”

And who are the stars of this show? The Loser in Chief proudly boasted about that as part of his most recent late night Twitter meltdown. In the words of one reporter, “He has assembled the Fox News evening programming disinformation dream team.”

Jake Tapper came up with the line, “the gang who couldn’t sue straight.” Transcript via Raw Story:

“On Friday, nine cases from Trump and his allies intended to attack and undo President Biden’s victory in key states. nine cases rejected for dropped — nine,” he continued. “So what now? Well, now the president of the United States is literally embracing a deranged conspiracy theory that millions of votes were changed using software. The problem here, a group of national, state, and private election officials issued a statement Thursday promoted online by the cybersecurity czar at the Department of Homeland Security with this sentence bolded: ‘There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,’ unquote.”

“The problem with Republican officeholders arguing that President Trump has his right to present his evidence in court is that the president’s efforts do not have anything to do with evidence,” he added. “They have to do it with hearsay and rumor and insinuations and lies and conspiracy theories. Once these efforts have been rejected by every court, outgoing President Trump will likely continue to make them. How long is the Republican Party going to continue to defer to unhinged mendacious desperation led by the gang that couldn’t sue straight?”

America, America, God shed his grace on thee. Get us through somehow for 66 more days until Trump can be perp walked out, if necessary.

Even Jason Bourne, one man on the outside of an organization, managed to prove his case. I know it’s fictional, but also based on true events.

Sadly, we now know wayyyy too much about “fictional but true” …

I hope Biden puts Trump and all the other traitors, murderers, and crooks in jail forever. If not, Trump will torment the world till he drops dead.

That simply isn’t in Biden’s job description — it’s the job of the judicial system. Only despots do that to political opponents.

Biden’s DOJ sure can and should. Every stinking one of these bad people need to be brought to justice. And I don’t need you telling me what a despot is. If the DOJ doesn’t prosecute every stinking one they can including Senators, they are worse than Trump trying to prosecute Democrats that haven’t done a thing. At least the illegitimately prosecuted Democrat would have his day in court and a jury. Republicans that are let off the hook are just that, let off the hook to harm again and again and again.

Jesus, Blue, get a grip, man. As Ursula says, protection against the troll brigade is the reason why your posts aren’t getting through. Kindly do NOT accuse Ursula of DKos games.

There was a story some time ago about two Science Fiction writers who challenged each other to write a book that could be the basis for a new ‘religion.

Robert Heinlein wrote ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’
Hubbard wrote ‘Dianetics’

U need to check out Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle & the Religion of Bokononism. The first line of the dogma is ” live by the foma (harmless untruths) that make you brave and kind and healthy and happy.”

I miss Borders, also. There’s a B&N, but it’s like 10 miles away and hard to get to and from.

Like millions of other Americans, I will be so happy to see January 20th get here that I might end up throwing a party.

Regarding quoting America the Beautiful I’m not so sure about God’s grace. If god exists, it looks to me like he got fed up with all those conservatives calling themselves Christians while ignoring EVERYTHING Jesus taught in their own damned bibles taking over our political system and cut us loose. As in “America – you’re on your own now. I blessed you with people who dreamed big about creating a special country, and with people of incredible will willing to work and suffer through monumental unfairness to create a place where all were welcome and accepted. I blessed you with… Read more »

Again, projection of his reality. There was a conspiracy and 45 did a damned good job. Put democracy in doubt if it can’t be destroyed. Domestic Enemy #1: 45.

A ‘Dream Team’ from the sort of dream you have after eating too much cheese.

After Ghouliani’s latest antics, beyond parody.

On 1/20/2021, one Donald Trump will be out of the White House and vulnerable. Justice will be eyeing him and his family like an eagle eyes a rodent scurrying through the piney woods. Then Justice will be quick.
