Biden is about what I thought he would be.

Much better than Trump domestically.  In fact, if he keeps on going, I agree with AOC.

About an even call in foreign policy.  Let us see if he really gets us out of Afghanistan, and the Middle East,  and what he does about Syria and Yemen.

Jeremy Scahill just posted an article about Biden's Senate history on foreign policy and military issues.

I've been fairly pleased with Biden's first 100 days, but this is why I voted for Bernie in the 2020 primary here.

Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene mocked for forming joint fundraising agreement: 'Does it accept Venmo?'

by Brad Reed April 30, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/matt-gaetz-and-marjorie-taylor-greene/

"Scandal-plagued Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is teaming up with QAnon-loving Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for a national tour in which they target fellow Republicans who don't support their purported "America first" agenda -- but that's not the full extent of their partnership.

Gaetz and Greene this week filed paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission this week to create the Put America First Joint Fundraising Committee, which will raise campaign cash for both Republican representatives.”

So, a Q-Anon conspiracy theorist teams up with a guy who likes young girls. Wonder how that’s going to work out? Can you imagine what their rallies are going to look like?

War is coming to the Republican Party.

'Trump has never actually been wrong': Supporters of ex-president attempting to purge Republican Party of non-believers

by Tom Boggioni May 02, 2021

“According to a report from the Washington Post, while the GOP leadership is split over pushing Rep. Lynne Cheney (R-WY) out of her leadership role for speaking ill of Donald Trump, grassroots activists are looking at taking over local Republican Party organizations and purging those who refuse to say the 2020 presidential election was stolen.”

“With the report stating, "Nearly six months after Trump lost to Biden, rejection of the 2020 election results — dubbed the 'Big Lie' by many Democrats — has increasingly become an unofficial litmus test for acceptance in the Republican Party," one GOP activist made the case that Trump has never led his party --and the country -- astray.

"I think I speak for many people in that Trump has never actually been wrong, and so we've learned to trust when he says something, that he's not just going to spew something out there that's wrong and not verified," Debra Ell of Michigan explained when talking about the November election that saw Trump lose to former Vice President Joe Biden.

Ell added that she working hard to get rid of Michigan Republican Party executive director Jason Roe for telling Politico he didn't believe the election was stolen.”

“According to Whitney Phillips, an assistant professor of communication and rhetorical studies at Syracuse University, mainstream Republicans should have seen this coming.

"It feels like this has been happening in the Republican Party for a really long time. If you allow an entire contingent of your caucus to be steeped in conspiratorial thinking, what … do you think is going to happen? They're going to turn on you," Phillips explained.”

 

Yesterday, Mitt Romney was booed and called a traitor and a communist at the Utah State Republican Party Convention.

"According to a report from Politico, pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood -- who had a hand in Georgia Republicans losing two seats in the U.S. Senate -- has jumped into Republican Party politics in South Carolina and local GOP leaders there don't know what to do about him.

Wood, who has latched onto QAnon conspiracies in his attempts to prove Donald Trump had the 2020 presidential election stolen from him, is attempting to be elected as the chair of the South Carolina Republican Party and he is using his army of rabid followers to make his move."

     So, along the lines of Jim Acosta calling Trump a "sad old Elvis" yesterday, here's a blog for anyone in need of a little comic relief.  (I especially liked the Tweet about Trump starring as Willy Loman in a Mar-a-Lago Dinner Theater production of Death of a Salesman.)  😂
