US politics is batshit crazy...

Speaking of batsh*t crazy, this latest poll from PEW research :zippermouth:

The survey asked about the acceptability of elected officials from one party calling their counterparts in the other party “evil.”

A majority of Democrats (57%) and about half of Republicans (52%) say their parties should be not too or not at all accepting of officials who do this.

About four-in-ten Democrats 41% say their party should be accepting of elected officials in their own party who call GOP officials evil, with 13% saying their party should be very accepting of this. Among Republicans, 46% say their party should be accepting of officials who call their Democratic counterparts evil, including 18% who say the party should be very accepting of these officials.

I would have expected the other way round, but fairly even. My theory is that the US is a Christian based culture, and that applies to the atheists and agnostics as well. They say they aren't Christian, but they live by Christian concepts of evil and are judgmental in a way that many Christians can be. Even though they reject Christianity per se, they have grown up with Christian concepts (including charity, good and evil, and religious certainty, etc.) instilled from childhood.

So they are religious fanatics without the tempering aspect of any tested or established religion. They make it up as they go, and they do it with fervor and certainty that they are right and just. And those who disagree, of course, are evil.

Politicians long ago figured this out, and magnify it to their advantage.

Ironically, politicians themselves are among the most objectively evil people in the country.

Subverting JUSTICE (Interim Staff Report)

How the Former President and His Allies Pressured DOJ to Overturn the 2020 Election

On Jan. 3, days before Donald Trump’s supporters went on to ransack the U.S. Capitol, the president allegedly opened a high-stakes Oval Office meeting by complaining to his acting attorney general that he was doing nothing to help him “overturn” his election defeat to Joe Biden.

The extraordinary claim was made by former Acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen in an interim report released by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday morning that sheds more light on Trump’s pressure campaign on the Justice Department in the dying weeks of his presidency.

According to Rosen, Trump opened the Oval Office meeting on the evening of Jan. 3 by complaining to the gathered officials: “One thing we know is you, Rosen, aren’t going to do anything to overturn the election.”

The language used here is extremely funny, as usual:

On Jan. 3, days before Donald Trump’s supporters went on to ransack the U.S. Capitol, the president

In 2020, days before Democrat supporters went to ransack the federal building in Portland, the Democratic candidate sought to overturn the results of the failed election.

Note the choice of words: Not protestors or rioters, but "Trump supporters." Not protested or trespassed, but "ransacked."

And of course, highlighting the word "overturn", as though Trump is an eloquent master of words. The last 2 Democrats to lose elections also sought to "overturn" them. Remember Al Gore's long resistance. But those attempts, according to the media, were proper inquiries about the legitimacy of the results.

Equally, the riots after Trump's 2020 victory were all fine and dandy. Even when they burned federal buildings.

Such obviously manipulative language should alert the reader that they are being fed propaganda, and should cause them to question the remainder of the article.

AG Garland Threatens Parents Who Criticize Critical Race Theory (CRT) – His Son-In-Law Sells CRT Books to Schools
Biden’s corrupt Attorney General, Merrick Garland, announced he was going to target parents around the country who oppose the critical race theory (CRT) and were speaking up about it at local school board meetings.

CRT promotes anti-white racism. It turns out the AG’s son-in-law is making lots of money selling the books schools use to teach about the racist theory.

CNN has given up trying to hide Biden's poll numbers. Not because they have changed, they want Kamala, the first affirmative action VP to be the first affirmative action President.

And to think. Just 6 months ago he was the most popular president in the entire history of the nation - way more popular than even Obama. That was a proven fact, and anyone who questioned it was a flat-earther white supremacist.

Amazing how the narrative changes. But only a domestic terrorist would question it. Patriots accept what they are told, even if it means flipping 180 degrees.

We've seen it in this thread so many times. If it plays on liberal media it must be true. No questions asked.

Republicans rejected bipartisan riot commission now complain the special committee is not bipartisan :xf.wink:

The definition of "ransack": to search a place or container in a violent and careless way.

They were Trump supporters. There was no proof the election was stolen when he led them on by invite and inflammatory speech on Jan.6th (not Jan. 4,5,7 etc.). Call a spade a spade.

A token Rhino or 2 is not bipartisan. Not to mention the investigation itself is political theatre much like Mao put on during the Cultural Revolution. No reason to lend credibility to a kangaroo court by playing along. Let them own it.

There was no search or violent handling and property damage was not widespread. Nothing was ransacked. Search Google images for "ransacked room" and then tell me the Capitol looked anything like anything shown. Ransacked is a world the corporate media use to evoke far more than what actually happened on that day, like they use "insurrection" and "deadly." (Is "attempted coup" still in play, or did they retire that one?)

Edit: I found one video that purported to show a ransacked office - paper and files on the floor. Was that ransacked by the mysterious men in black military outfits? I wonder who they worked for... Or was it ransacked after the fact to make it look good? We know they are going out of the way to imprison every person who was there on that day - the exact opposite of the approach they took to antifa and BLM rioters.

They were Trump supporters. There was no proof the election was stolen when he led them on by invite and inflammatory speech on Jan.6th (not Jan. 4,5,7 etc.).

Yes, there were Trump supporters, as well as Antifa and god knows how many undercover FBI agents/provocateurs. Trump incited nothing. His speech was well within normal parameters. He never called for violence, and what little violence there was many well have been incited by the FBI agents. They have an established track record of doing exactly this.

There was no proof that OJ Simpson killed his wife either.

"Incitement is not a crime under the First Amendment unless it meets certain criteria.
First of all, it has to be intended to cause violence (and you infer that intent from the circumstances). It also has to be likely to cause violence."

And again, there was very little violence. The only deadly violence being used by a cop against an unarmed woman at point blank. If she were black and he was white, there would be mobs calling for his imprisonment. In this case, though, not only has he faced no inquiry, but he has been called a hero and his identity was hidden. Apparently Trump supporters' lives don't matter.


Call a spade a spade.

I would very much like to see an inquiry into the FBI's (and other unaccountable agencies) undercover involvement in that day. It will never happen of course, despite the almost certain likelihood that they were part of the mob in significant numbers and, of so, almost certainly tried to incite violence. Because that's what they do.

An independent commission is created to help the country understand what happened and also to prevent future attacks. It is not a court. The commission was proposed by a moderate Republican, to include 5 members from each party (hence bi-partisan). Why would 175 Republicans vote against (35 voted for) and play possum to hide the truth, even though we saw the events with our own eyes?

So they say. But I don't believe them.

I'd imagine they don't believe them either.

Seattle could fire 40% of police force over COVID-19 vaccine mandate [NY Post]
The city is poised to fire as many as 403 officers, about 40 percent of the 1,000-person force, for failing to take the COVID-19 jab by an Oct. 18 deadline, according to local reports.
The Seattle Police Department has already lost more than 300 officers since Black Lives Matters riots and the “defund the police” movement roiled the city in 2020, putting officers in the crosshairs of political and public ire.
