I'm so hurt, ET's heartbroken.

I won't fly a flag in my yard saying this in response to those who do saying F B, F Y Feelings.

But, to them only.

Biden Won.

FYF

Get Over It.  

Eric Trump wants you to know he is heartbroken (msn.com)

In related news, Lara Trump was recently hired as a commentator for Faux News, and Eric Trump bashed Joe Biden on Fox for spending some weekends at his modest home in...uh...Delaware.  (In a Fox segment on the current GOP Psy-Op, Operation Border Scare.)

This from the guy whose father funneled millions of taxpayer dollars to Trump Organization coffers for his weekly golf vacations at Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster from 2017-2021.

Of course, Matt Gaetz is under investigation for sex trafficking. But when he was on Tucker Carlson to try to explain, he tried to appeal to Carlson for sympathy by dredging up a 20 year old sex charge against Carlson that didn't go anywhere, that Carlson obviously wished Gaetz never mentioned!

Gaetz then mentions seeing Carlson and his wife at a restaurant and introducing the girl in question, which Carlson denies!  (Gaetz is married!) I'm not sure what Gaetz expectation was, did he really expect to get sympathy and future exposure on Fox by embarrassing his host?

Ideally it would be nice to show just those isolated clips, rather than go through the 10 minute interview. But the most concise way was this sequence that starts at 2:18 and ends at 6:00 on Jimmy Kimmel.

The day the Fairness Doctrine died was a turning point in modern US history.

As many who defended it at the end said, it was a way to protect the consumer.  He could petition for Equal Time if he was unfairly maligned. Today, only the rich can sue conglomerates like FOX. 

As we shall see with the cases of Smartmatic and Dominion.

Verily, Jim Garrison got his day on national TV.  

On July 15, 1967, New Orleans District Attorney Garrison was given a half-hour to respond to an NBC program that was highly critical of Garrison.

That will never happen again.

I watched the Jim Garrison response on TV when it was aired.

As usual elegantly stated and presented. Garrison was really a man of superlative intelligence, verbal and public speaking skills.

A moving, thought provoking and true deeper moral value honest man and speaker.

Every detractor of Jim Garrison couldn't hold a candle to his sincere, righteous moral value courage and eloquence imo.

"To Kill A Mocking Bird" Gregory Peckish? Henry Fonda in "12 Angry Men?"

I did as well, and had a similar response. I also recall being thoroughly baffled as to why Garrison's investigation was being savaged on tv in such a public manner. That alone seemed to reek of some sort of lawlessness.  History has proved that to have been the case.

I have been re-reading Joan Mellen's updated Farewell to Justice and am quite mystified by her assertions that not only was RFK behind this Gutting of Garrison's investigation, in order to protect his interest in LHO, but that he might even have met Lee Oswald prior to the assassination.

News accounts all day focused on the attack at the Capitol that left a police officer dead. Many of those news accounts mentioned the Jan 6 riot of Trump supporters after he spent months claiming the election was stolen. Here is his takeaway

This man must never be allowed to hold an office of public trust in the United States, or any other country, for the rest of his life.

At least Trump is finally "Backing the Blue," for a change.  Better three months late than never.

Meanwhile, according to WaPo today, the young man who killed the Capitol Police officer yesterday was, apparently, hearing voices and experiencing paranoid delusions-- i.e., paranoid schizophrenia.

This did not preclude some from blaming the tragic attack on Louis Farrakhan-- which is somewhat analogous to blaming Jodie Foster for John Hinckley, Jr.'s attack on Ronald Reagan. 🤥

Makes me wonder.  Have I been wrong all along, was the Warren Omission right?  Was Ozzie was a lone nut?  He was never examined by a professional like the elephant killer Jolly West, who did ultimately examine Ruby.  Maybe Ozzie was just schizophrenic paranoid looser as well.  All that for a song.  Watch the fingers.

It's disconcerting to consider that the top three CPAC straw poll winners for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination-- Trump, DeSantis, and Noem-- are all science-denying COVIDIOTS.

Richard Hofstadter hit the nail on the head in his Pulitzer Prize-winning 1964 opus, Anti-Intellectualism in American Life.

Conspiracy Land

by David Gambacorta, April 7, 2021

The Philadelphia Inquirer

https://www.inquirer.com/news/a/qanon-conspiracy-theory-trump-voting-philadelphia-20210407.html

He (Eric Ward) was troubled then by federal, state, and local authorities’ reluctance to treat conspiracy and far-right extremist movements as an urgent threat, and worries that the Capitol attack will prove to be the prologue to darker incidents. “We’re going to find ourselves right back to this moment in three years, and it will look much more serious than Jan. 6,” he said. “But no one will believe it until it happens.” “


What happened to Philadelphia election officials in 2020.

This is a good read.
