Serious question: Is Chuck Todd stupid?

Brad Slager - Incontinent On Another Continent @MartiniShark
This - is - amazing

Watch @chucktodd say Abraham Lincoln's election was more accepted than Biden's.
11 states seceded as a direct result; the first just 6 weeks after the election.
Lincoln WAS NOT EVEN ON THE BALLOT in the South.

These are our “elites”.

Good Morning JOM! I’m in the middle of our very 1st official snow storm with a day off from work! Thanks for the many links! Some great articles & tips. I hope everyone is doing great considering…. Quick question about Witch Pelosi… how in hell can the Repubs subpoena her? Isn’t it a little way too little much too late? I hope we can make it through another 3 years of this madness…
Take care.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

"There is in America a building so sacred that when people walk into and look at things, it’s worse than Pearl Harbor (I’ll use the US spelling).

Many know that this idea is insane. The dishonesty and absurdity is obvious. But few have commented on the hubris of it.

Imagine thinking this building is this sacred, because YOU work there.

Have you ever felt that way about your office, your desk, your workspace, your building? Did you ever consider it holy purely because you and your mates spent time there? That some golden glow emanated from you, rendering the toilet seat in the first floor lavatories where you took a dump once, akin to the altar of the lost temple wherein was placed the Ark of the Covenant?

Nobody sane thinks walking into a building is an insurrection. But someone with the pride and malice of Satan does think that questioning them, defying them in any way, is a great crime.

They are the only thing they hold sacred. Their power, their position, their privilege. Daring to question that, even by looking at their desk or walking through their halls, is the only sin.

None of these places are public buildings, in the minds of the elite. They are their property, which thou shalt not transgress.
They are made holy by the deity of every Democrat, their own selves, and for the Unclean Public to know them simply as places where liars and crooks gather is what really explains the anger and hysteria of that elite when discussing January 6th 2020."

As reliable a source as any, Melinda. Perhaps SP was near death, and then he died, so the reports were not a hoax, but jumping the gun.

Speaking of hoaxes, are the January 6th "insurrection" concerts and events over yet, or are they continuing through November of 2024?

Melinda

At least that long. Punching bag politics requires the presence of at least one punching bag.

    What happens when only a handful of giant grocery store chains like @Kroger dominate an industry? They can force high food prices onto Americans while raking in record profits. We need to strengthen our antitrust laws to break up giant corporations and lower prices.

By and large, at least half of America tuned out to the Democrats’ J6 “commemoration”. I didn’t watch or listen to any of it, I especially ignored Biden’s speech, because I knew it was a made for TV event starring Democrats as the Caped Crusaders of Democracy.
Yesterday, in their orgiastic display of self-love and Trump fear and loathing, the Democrats made many horrific, absurd, and ultimately illegitimate comparisons of J6 to recorded historical events.
A more accurate comparison to make would be the reaction of the American people to the July 2021 Afghanistan withdrawal debacle and the calls for accountability. Like Afghanistan, there were obvious failures and irregularities that demand and deserve explanation.
They persist in claiming Trump and his allies are telling the “Big Lie” about the 2020 election being stolen and many, like yours truly, know something was wrong with that election, and believe, as in the Epstein/Maxwell situations, we are being prevented from accessing the truth.
We watched as President Trump drew tens of thousands of people to his rallies as the Biden campaign drew literally tens of people (masked and socially distanced, of course).
We know several key states changed election procedures in direct violation of their own constitutions.
We know there were irregularities in the mail out balloting process.
We know there were irregularities in the vote tallying processes in several states.
We know (anecdotally, of course) there was a level of energy President Trump’s appearances generated that stood in complete contrast to Biden hiding in his basement and rarely holding public events. Trump campaigned, Biden didn’t.
Those are facts, but because they were discovered and investigations pursued by partisan organizations, the results have been mocked at best, ignored at worse – but who else other than partisan interests would have investigated? The perpetrator and winning party had no interest in discovery or cooperation, their goal is always to cover their tracks, and in every instance, the opposing party did everything possible to hinder these inquiries to make them appear illegitimate.
I’ve said it before, I have no compelling, objective, conclusive evidence the 2020 election was corrupt – but on the other hand, I have no compelling, objective, and conclusive evidence it wasn’t.
Something about the 2020 election just wasn’t right. To this date, I still have the feeling that something just doesn’t add up.
For that reason, I wanted accountability – that means audits and protections guaranteed by the Supreme Court that our rights under the Constitution of the United States were not violated by agents of chaos who willfully violated their own state constitutions.
We got none of that.
We had Congressmembers, both House and Senate, calling for two weeks of investigations of electoral practices and vote counting but since the Democrat ticket “won” and the Democrats held narrow majorities in the House and Senate, they were having none of it.
The cowards on the Supreme Court refused to hear cases, primarily using procedural excuses like a lack of standing to avoid getting involved.
So, what is a population to do when one faction tries to hide what they did and the government entities responsible for making sure issues are resolved in daylight stop listening?
Well, if you are favored by Democrats, you turn to violence – you protest, loot, burn, murder, firebomb federal buildings, attack federal law enforcement officials and set up your own “autonomous zones”, all with the tacit support of the Democrat Party. You don’t fear prosecution because you will not be prosecuted.
If you are a Republican, you protest without looting, burning, murdering, firebombing federal buildings, attacking federal law enforcement officials, or setting up your own “autonomous zones - and when some people trespass on Capitol buildings, you are called insurrectionists, hunted, and raided by the FBI, imprisoned without bail for months on end and charged, not with insurrection, but with minor crimes.
The objections to the tallying of 2020 Electoral College votes were procedurally the same as when Democrats challenged the 2016 election results - except the Republicans didn’t initiate a campaign to get electors to declare themselves “faithless” and vote for Hillary Clinton instead of voting for the candidate to whom they were pledged.
The same Democrats and media figures who openly questioned the results of the 2016 election by claiming it was rife with corruption, accusing President Trump of collusion with Russia, for four years called his presidency illegitimate, and who objected to the results on the floor of the House, are the same people who claim there was nothing wrong with the 2020 election (when their guy won), that it was secure, perfect and unassailable.
Overnight, the Democrats went from questioning the election and preparing to aggressively resist its results to considering the election sacrosanct and aggressively defending the results.
Nothing questionable or suspicious about such an overnight switch, is there?
J6 was never about insurrection, the death of democracy, obstructing congressional vote counting or kidnapping or killing any elected official or bureaucrat. In truth, the only violent death associated with the protest was a Air Force veteran, Ashli Babbitt, who was shot to death by a Capitol policeman.
J6 was about accountability. It was about the Constitutional right to redress of grievances. It was about a government that refused to hear the concerns of the governed.
Just as we will never see accountability for the debacle in Afghanistan (it is already being memory holed), we will never get answers to what happened in 2020. When answers aren’t forthcoming, all that leaves is theory and building doubt in the public mind.
The perversion of our systems and the federal and state level and the refusal to get to the bottom of the concerns pretty much guarantees another J6 type event.
If that happens to be due to a Democrat loss, God help us.
I doubt the cast of Hamilton will be performing.

--What happens when only a handful of giant grocery store chains like @Kroger dominate an industry? They can force high food prices onto Americans while raking in record profits. We need to strengthen our antitrust laws to break up giant corporations and lower prices.--

So why is it just in the last year, after 40 years of these evil, powerful geniuses not pushing food prices up very much, they finally realized we are at their mercy and they can raise prices to the stratosphere?
It's like the never ending idiocy of listening to these shitbirds squawking every time about the rapacious oil companies when oil goes up, but they never mention the benevolent and kind hearted oil companies when prices go down.
Of course now they're so demented they cheer when oil goes up and poor people can't afford gas.
We need a purge. A real insurrection with real blood. Lots of it.
The alternative is these pricks kill our country.

Reminds me of the fact that, as part of an attempt to subvert the Justice system, lawyers before the courts, including SCOTUS, made their cases by misquoting legal references.

After this, many courts produced decisions quoting the words used in the opinions.

"These guys (Democrat leaders) are stone-cold revolutionaries, they are Jacobins. The are ten times more dangerous than those clownish people who entered the Capital on January 6th. They are even more dangerous than those people who for 120 continuous days rioted and burned cities all over America last year, who burned and looted and injured 2000 people and killed thirty cops we don't talk about.

And let's keep in mind who he's talking about - Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, Biden - how long have these empty scrota been around? They didn't just turn into Jacobins. They believe what they've always believed and like the Jacobins they just think they can be a bit more honest about it now as they close in on absolute power.
The brief wikipedia articles on the Reign of Terror and the Jacobins are pretty fair and they describe pretty much exactly what we face.
