FineWine:  We all eagerly await your synoptic breakdown of the daily proceedings 🎓😀

 

 

Here goes:  😐

 

It was a long and boring session, fronted by Liz Cheney, and summarized by The Washington Post as follows:

 

(brutally condensed to bullet points)

 

Liz Cheney Takes on Trump and Her Own Party, in Prime Time

 

 

  • Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) played a leading role in the hearing 

  • Cheney is the staunch conservative running for reelection in the most pro-Trump state in the country who has emerged as the leader of the anti-Trump wing of Republicans in Congress.

  • Cheney repeated words she used on Jan. 12, 2021:  “President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack.”

       “Tonight, I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible: There will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain,” she said.

  • Trump willfully ignored advice that the 2020 election result was not fraudulent.

  • Trump created - and continues to create - his own reality.

  • Trump will probably be enraged by video remarks from allies.

  •  Barr and Ivanka Trump saw no evidence of election fraud.

       “I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff which I told the president was bullshit,” Barr said in a recorded interview.

  • Evidence about those who sought pardons could be embarrassing.

  •  Much of the scheming and plotting happened in plain sight.

  • Jan. 6 was told through police body cameras and GoPros.

I think this is an obscure reference to the 1988 movie "They live"

Jumped to relevant part of movie., 31 minute mark

By pure coincidence I was reading about that very movie the other night! You must have read my mind. Slight tangent here but Michael J Fox's twin that he wears (come on, they so look alike) was used in the intro for the Amiga game Bart Vs The Space Mutants.

 

Seriously though, I never made the connection, as I'd never seen any of that movie until tonight. Thanks for sharing the link!

Audio of Kevin McCarthy, Texts From Fox News Hosts About Jan. 6 Revealed

Late Night with Seth Meyers

"Seth takes a closer look at Republicans changing their tune to appease Trump after phone call audio emerged of GOP House leader Kevin McCarthy calling for an investigation into what happened on January 6 just days after the insurrection."

Kevin McCarthy...where do we start? Spineless coward who - after (rightly) condemning Trump and his bunch of thugs - ended up running back into his arms just to get into his good graces. Scaredy-cat.

Predictably, the right-wing channels and outlets (mostly Fox) continue to spout propaganda - the exact same thing they accuse all the other channels of doing:

Anything for their BFF Trump, right?

I've slipped some of the subliminal-messaging lines from that film into documentation in the past, wherever there's a block of text like a base64-encoded CSR or something if you look closely you'll see "Obey", "Stay Asleep", "Marry and reproduce", ...

"Free speech is guaranteed only when it agrees with my warped view of the world" - Donald Trump (likely)

 

Trump’s ‘Free Speech’ Social Network, Truth Social, Is Banning People For Truthing The Truth About January 6 Hearings | Techdirt

 

 

In news that will surprise basically no one, Truth Social, Trump’s social network that was pitched as being about bringing free speech back and not doing any “viewpoint discrimination,” even as its terms of service promised it would be heavily moderated, is now banning users for trying to spread some “truths” about the January 6 hearings.

 

 

No surprise there. The MAGA freedumbs and Republican idiots are all against "cancel culture" unless its someone speaking up, in which case... they cancel.

You know things are going to get pretty bad when your own kids turn against you.

 

$10 says Ivanka's been cut out of Trump's will now.

Trump's estate may be a huge debt riddled with legal complications.   🧐

The "National Review" may be unique media in that it's far-right, but has never liked Trump.



It's mainly down to big brain William F. Buckley Jr. thinking that Trump is an unsophisticated ignorant bore.

Politics made strange bedfellows.

National Review: For the sake of faith and freedom, please, enough with President Trump

My heart sank earlier today when I noticed a press release about Donald Trump giving a keynote at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority 2022. I’m pretty sure I spoke at a Faith and Freedom Coalition gathering once or twice or more in my life.

These were my people, and I’m sure some of them still are (until they read this post?) ...

My heart sank because Donald Trump shouldn’t be headlining political conferences in 2022. Even just watching clips of the January 6 hearings (which is all I’ve managed thus far) is embarrassing and maddening.

Why are Republicans still defending him? And more so: Why are Christian conservatives catering to him, even adoring him?

Trump has the thinnest of skin, and abuses the legal system with SLAPP suit (◔_◔)

Business Insider: A Trump lawyer wants cash sanctions over fear-of-flying-fruit reveal — and lashes out at Daily Beast, Michael Cohen

Former President Donald Trump is demanding cash sanctions over what his lawyer is calling the malicious disclosure of the former president's fear of fruit being thrown at him.

Trump's stated concern that "pineapples, tomatoes, bananas, stuff like that" could be thrown at him at protests had been revealed in April, as part of his sworn deposition in a Bronx civil lawsuit.

Fruit-laden excerpts from that deposition should never have been made public, Trump lawyer Alina Habba complained last month.

But in papers filed on Friday, Habba upped the ante, demanding cash sanctions to "punish" the "bad-faith conduct."
