    This season of the spin-off of The West Wing is getting superb.

    That goes with my theory that PT Barnum is the true father of the country. It makes me sad to say that but I was in the belly of the beast as far as the corporate oligarchy goes for 13 years & I saw a lot of stuff that made me sick. I was trapped though by health issues & couldn't get out until I finally had to take a disability retirement. No one was going to hire me with what's essentially a fatal disease (eventually). I can't get into specifics as I had to sign a NDA when I left but things are worse than you think.

    It'll come down to whatever the corporate overlords want. As usual. Make no mistake, corporate USA liked a lot of what Trump did. The only thing that mitigates that is it's pretty much business as usual under Biden. We need to vote out all these people who have been in DC for decades & are still there just for the money & the power. Case in point: in Washington state we have a senator running for term 6. At first she was the soccer mom who'd gone big time. Now, she's just throwing mud at her opponent without nothing much substantial going on. Also, she's the number one benefactor from big pharma from either party while saying she's all about the people. Sadly, the Republicans are running a Trump head against her. I actuallly voted for another Democrat in the primary but they didn't have the name recognition. Just one example. The problem of stale leadership is endemic.

    Citizens United has to be in the conversation at least if not near the top of worst decisions made for the country.

    Yeah, it could go either way but the reporting is doing a lazy job of, you know, reporting.

    Committee voting to subpoena today!!

    Obviously Trump's going to make an absolute scene about it, but at least we're finally getting some concrete accountability here.

    Watching Liz Cheney on Meet the Press. I hope I'm not going to hell for this but she sounds pretty reasonable, at least on the Jan 6 stuff. Big step considering her dad is a major minion of Satan.

    Some rumblings that she’s going to run as an independent in 2024. She said that if Trump runs, she won’t be a Republican. I’d look for it but I’m lazy today

    That's what Sundays are for. I'm watching the US Grand Prix. It's a sports orgy today. The race should be done just about in time for the Seahawks game. Happier than a pig in slop about that as they say.

    NYT reporting as expected Garland appointing Special Council. He effectively waited for 21 months then punted. It's going to be Muller again isn't it?

    Garland lacks resolve.

    Feels like with Trump's announcement receiving such a tepid response, they thought now would be the best time.

    Investigations take time, especially good ones built to prosecute. Considering they have several irons in the fire this seems like the logical progression, more so now that he's officially announced.

    aren't the Jan 6th hearings supposed to start again with more evidence? If they can really connect him to orchestrating that attempted insurrection, he is barred from running. It's in the constitution.

    "What does the 14th Amendment Section 3 mean?



    Ratified in the aftermath of the Civil War, Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment explicitly disqualifies any person from public office who, having previously taken an oath as a federal or state office holder, engaged in insurrection or rebellion."

    I don't think they have anything scheduled at this point but there's this from the Sunday morning shows: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/january...ce-the-nation/

    "Within a month, the public will have everything that we've found, all the evidence. For good or ill," Lofgren told "Face the Nation."
    So while they have not coordinated with DOJ as of yet, any evidence and under-oath testimony released publicly would also be released to DOJ.
