Ohio Supreme Court finds second set of gerrymandered district maps to be in violation of the Ohio Constitution. Requires 3-day turnaround for yet another map. Democrats propose a fully compliant map today.
Displaying the effect of a partisan court that seems to have lost all credibility, SCOTUS says it’s okay for Alabama to ignore the Voting Rights Act, legalizing the gerrymander, reversing a lower court.
Ted Cruz trolls Stacey Abrams for not wearing a mask, and Joe & Jill Biden for wearing them. Ted Cruz is a total troll, don’t let him near the white house, which is his goal. Troll Cruz is obsessed with masks and not masks.
The loser stole 15 boxes of files and historical records, along with some furniture from the White House. National Archives retrieved as much as they could find.
The loser, every day for his entire tenure in the White House, broke federal law by destroying, burning, ripping, and shredding historical presidential documents. Several times aides retrieved docs from the trash can and taped them back together.
Reporter had to run down the hallway to keep up with GOP House Leader McCarthy fleeing like a terrified child, trying to get McCarthy’s opinion on “legitimate political discourse.” She was told he shouldn’t talk in the hallway and to make an appointment.
Oh yeah. “Legitimate Political Discourse.” RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel tried to walk it back with a “talking points” memo, but that didn’t work.
Starbucks is raising prices, again, to fund the CEO’s $20.4 Million compensation.
Republicans are again talking about Hunter’s laptop, preparing to deflect news about yet another big crime to be announced soon.
Canadian women’s hockey team destroyed Russia 6-1…while wearing masks. Canadian truckers shown to be the pussies that they are.
Canadian trucker strike is practice for the same tactics being planned for the US.
Mitch McConnell appears to be collecting Republicans to create the non-loser party. It looks like Pence and Lindsey Graham might become new members. McConnell says it’s ”not the job” of the RNC to censure two if its own members.
Speaking of…Pence is no hero about the insurrection. He waited a year to see which way the wind was blowing, determined that his former boss is a mental case, and came down on the McConnell side. He didn’t say “Biden won,” didn’t say “it’s a big lie.”
The Ohio House held hearings to gather public input into whether to support a national states’ Constitutional Convention to amend the US constitution with the intention to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and Members of Congress.
MTG is calling for a GQP “civil war” whatever that means. Prob McConnell versus the crazies. MTG has been suspended from Facebook for 3 days.
Two utility company attorneys and an oil company manager have been nominated to become the new head of the Ohio Public Utilities Commission representing, of course, the interests of the people of Ohio. Who saw that coming?
The District of Columbia is still not represented in the US Congress, has 712,000 residents, more than Vermont and Wyoming and comparable with other states including Delaware, Alaska, and several others.
HR 3076 passed the House, giving the USPS a major financial overhaul, relieving it of $57 Billion in liabilities, and $50 Billion cost savings over the next decade. Louis DeJoy is still the Postmaster General because the Senate won’t approve two new nominees to the USPS governing board. DeJoy wants to purchase 100,000 gasoline-powered delivery vehicles rather than using modern electric powered vehicles. Hello Climate Change!
Louie Gohmert claims the DOJ is reading his mail. I wonder why.
Paul Gosar claims that 740,000 Maricopa County ballots cannot be authenticated, but still maintains he won his seat. They are still promoting the Big Lie.
It was revealed to anti-vaxxers that having Chicken Pox as a child does NOT protect you from shingles. Quite the opposite.
Repub rep Hal Rogers poked Ohio Rep Joyce Beatty in the back and told her to “kiss my ass.”
Rep Cawthorn says “the Left wants to destroy the nuclear family” despite all evidence pointing to divorce as the reason for the destruction of the nuclear family.
According to repubs, January 6 was staged by the FBI, attended by Antifa and BLM, and for those reasons, the RNC under Ronna Romney McDaniel, decided to censure Kinzinger and Cheney.
Jim Jordan wanted to participate in the J6 Commission. It looks like he will. Also, he said he talked to the loser in the afternoon, but couldn’t remember when or what he said. Now we know that was a lie after exec office notes indicate he spent 10 minutes on the phone with the loser on the morning of the insurrection, oops, the legitimate political discourse.
LtCol Vindman is suing the loser, Ghouliani, and several others for engaging in an intentional, concerted campaign of unlawful intimidation and retaliation against him for testifying before Congress.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni seem to be going through some stuff, and it’s not over yet.
