The people that organized the rally on ellipse were afraid of the paramilitary groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers. The rally at the capitol may have been intended as invasion of the capitol all along. The people that organized the rally on ellipse tried to discourage people from going to the capitol but when Trump took the stage, he encouraged the crowd to go to the capitol.

When Steve Bannon said on his show, on the day before the Jan 6 insurrection, “that all hell would cut lose tomorrow” it shows that he knew what was going to happen. Bannon first refused to testify before the Jan 6 Committee but now has decided to testify. Bannon is facing jail time for contempt of congress, and he thinks if he testifies now, it will save him from jail, but the judge let him know that testifying now will not make a difference for refusing to testify the first time. Trump can’t pardon him again. Bannon was already pardoned by Trump for stealing a million dollars on that “build that wall scam.”

Today we have 90,431,960 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 90,338,657 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 93,303 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

The death toll stands at 1,046,232 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,045,792. That means that another 440 Americans died today from the Trump virus.

The Jan 6 committee has been connecting the dots and all the dots lead back to Trump. Trump called for the Jan 6th rally on twitter on Dec 19, 2020, saying “Big protest in DC on Jan 6th in DC, be there it will be wild.” Previously a group pro Trump group called “Women for America First” had planned a rally for Jan 20, but it was moved to Jan 6th after Trump’s tweet.

You can envision a number of dominoes set in order when someone pushes the first domino. Trump not only pushed the first domino he set the dominoes up to fall when pushed. When Trump told the crowd at the rally to “fight like hell” that set the chain of events in motion. All Trump had to do was set back and watch as the insurrection gained a life of its own.

Some of the Trump thugs coming to the insurrection volunteered for a “firing squad,” another wanted to start a white revolution and yet another asked, why don’t we just kill them…. every last democrat. the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers joined together for the insurrection.

Looking back, it is fortunate this didn’t end in a much bigger blood bath, it was a powder keg that didn’t fully explode.

Today we had 90,683,223 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 90,431,960 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 251,263 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

The death toll stands at 1,046,613 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,046,232. That means that another 381 Americans died today from the Trump virus.

The 2020 election left more hard feelings between republicans than ever before. It wasn’t before the election, there was agreement on candidates it was after the election when republican officials did not support the “big lie.” As republican officials investigated Trump’s lie, they found out it was just that a big lie. But the other republicans were not interested in hearing the truth, they wanted republican election officials to support Trump’s lie, when they didn’t, they became very angry with republican election officials. If they didn’t support the big lie they were threatened and so were their families.

In Michigan a group claimed that there were 289,866 illegal votes. They did this by taking a sampling of those who were sent illegal mail in ballots. The trouble was that they did not know the difference between a mail in application and a mail in ballot. One of the top republican state senators ran the investigation and investigated the allegations of dead people voting. He found two, one had the exact name as his dad who had died. The election clerk made the mistake. The other was a mail in ballot and the woman died after she mailed the ballot but died before the election. It sad that many of honest republicans will lose friends, jobs, businesses if not their lives over telling the truth and Trump who has lied his entire will be their hero.

Today we have 90,909,760 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 90,683,223 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 226,537 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

The death toll stands at 1,047,794 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,046,613. That means that another 1,181 Americans died today from the Trump virus.

Another witness has come forward to confirm Cassidy Hutchinson story about Trump throwing a fit about being taken to the capitol. The second witness was part of Trump’s motorcade. Now we are finding out that the secret services deleted their text messages from Jan 5th and Jan 6th after they were requested by a senate committee.

It seems like the Trump administration got away with destroying a lot of government documents without punishment. There should be a law that is very clear about what the punishment is if you destroy government documents. Trump has repeatedly thumbed his nose at government regulations and gotten away with it. You can’t have laws that apply to some but not others, they need to be enforced equally.

Trump wanted to lead the insurrection on Jan 6th and when the secret service stopped him, he was angry. We can all thank the secret service for not letting Trump direct the insurrection. The insurrection would have been much worse with Trump enraging the crowd. Trump is a coward and would not have led the charge, but he would have egged the rioters on.

Today we have 91,060,225 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 90,909,760 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 150,645 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

“The prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia has warned high profile republicans that they could be indicted for their role in efforts by ex-president Donald Trump and his supporters to overturn the results of the 2020 election.” The prosecutor wants Trump to testify under oath in front of a grand jury. One thing about Trump if one illegal scheme doesn’t work, he will find another illegal scheme.

First Trump tried to get the republican secretary of state in Georgia to just find another “13,000” votes for Trump. When this failed Trump decided to go to the Georgia state legislature to create a false set of electors who would vote for Trump even after Biden won the election. The red neck right republicans have a case in front of the supreme court now that would allow the state legislatures to decide which slate of electors would be sent to the electoral college, it would not matter how the vote went. Elections would be only ceremonial; the legislatures would decide.

Trumpists tried the false elector scheme in the swing states. Now it is time for the head of republican party in Georgia and two state senators to pay the price. It's time to see the guilty go to jail.

Today we have 91,170,571 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 91,060,235 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 110,336 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

We are now finding out in meeting in the White House on Dec 18, 2020. The meeting almost came to blows as the outside nut jobs vs the White House attorneys. The nut jobs were led by Crazy Sidney and Michael Flynn. Crazy Sidney wanted Trump to appoint her special counsel to investigate wild and groundless claims of voter fraud and it turns Crazy Sidney was an expert on “wild and groundless claims of voter fraud” It just so happens Crazy Sidney has come up with more claims of wild and groundless claims of voter fraud tan anyone and none of them required any proof, if someone said it, then it must be true. Flynn and company wanted Trump to declare martial law and seize the voting machines.

Crazy Sidney eventually expanded her conspiracy theory to include most of the world engaging in a conspiracy to beat Trump. At the meeting were three of Trump’s advisors and the outside nut jobs. It would have no doubt been a hell of fight, but it was adverted at the last minute. Can anyone imagine Crazy Sidney investigating anything other than the inside of a mental institution? Crazy Sidney was the one that supplied proof that Trump won the election using military intelligence officer as a source. Turns out that wasn’t the first thing he lied about, he flunked out of training in his first class. There is a term that denotes a military leader who surrounds himself with yes men but there no term for a leader who surround himself with nut jobs.

Today we have 91,250,392 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 91,170,571 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 79,821 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

The death toll stands at 1,048,822 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,048,693. That means that another 129 Americans died today from the Trump virus.

After Trump had got rid of the Attorney General, Bill Barr, he was not through with the Justice department. Trump went after the acting Attorney General, Jeffery Rosen, to make the Justice Department release a statement that the 2020 election fraudulent. Trump called every day with one hair brain conspiracy theory after another. One conspiracy theory was that an Italian contractor used satellites to change the results in the dominion voting machines. This conspiracy theory sound familiar to the one that stated Jews were responsible for the California wildfires, that they used space-based laser beams to start the fires so they could build a new highway in California. No doubt Crazy Sidney was responsible for coming up with the Italian contractor tale.

When the new Attorney general told Trump there was no evidence of substantial fraud that would change the outcome of the election. The justice Department told Trump “They could not snap their fingers and change the outcome of the election.” When the Justice refused to do Trump’s biding, he told the Justice Depart to just say the election was corrupt. “Leave the rest to me and the republican congressmen.” Trump was never concerned about the truth he was only interested in con. That statement tells you a lot about Trump and the republican congressmen.

Today we have 91,275,149 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 91,250,392 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 24,757 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

Can you imagine being a poll worker that is singled out by Trump as the reason he lost election. Trump attracts nut cases like lint, and he is using this poll workers name and her daughter’s name. The poll worker had to leave her home and received hundreds of threats. She was from Georgia and a woman from Chicago showed up on her mother’s doorstep who worked for Kanye West. After the woman, Trevian Kutti, was taken to the police department she told the poll worker that she was just about to be indicted by the US Attorney but if she and her daughtered “confessed” they would go free. You can tell the woman was lying if the US Attorney had wanted to talk to poll worker and her daughter, he would have called them. This was an effort to pressure the poll worker into making a false confession.

Trump said the poll worker and her daughter were handing out ballots like they were dope because they were black no doubt. In Trump conversation with Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, lawyer, Trump demand to know why the poll workers was not prosecuted? The lawyer questioned Trump about the ballots and Trump said all the ballots were for Biden. The lawyer told Trump that was not true. But Trump wasn’t greedy he only wanted 11,799 of the hundreds of thousands of votes he imagined he was cheated out of.

Today we have 91,429,409 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 91,275,149 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 154,260 Americans were diagnosed with Trump virus today.

Trump had to realize it was getting bad when even low-level government officials would not answer his phone calls or even return his calls. In Arizona Maricopa County Supervisor, Clint Hickman, received a call from the White House operator asking him to call Trump. He did not return the call and spoke to his attorney who advised him not to take a call from Trump. A call from the president might be something to tell your grandchildren but turning down repeated calls might make a an even better story. Why would Hickman not want to talk to the president? It quite simple Trump would want to involve him in his illegal scam. The call to Georgia Secretary of State had just been made public where Trump insisted that he find “11,799” votes. Since Arizona was also a swing state and I am sure Trump had a number of votes in mind that they needed to “find” in Arizona.

Trump was getting to be like Roger Dangerfield he just couldn’t get any respect not even a phone call. At least some republicans knew to keep their distance from Trump.

Today we have 91,529,862 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 91,429,409 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 100,453 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

One thing, Trump has been responsible for many people going to jail. All those people who have been jailed after Trump revved them up and pointed them toward the capitol. Trump also tried to send fake electors from the battle ground states. Now the 16 fake electors from Georgia are the target of an investigation. Trump’s theory was if can’t win the election maybe you can cheat your way in. By coming up with fake electors they would be sent to the electoral college with hopes that with two sets of electors the electoral college would reject both sets of electors. Like every other scam Trump tried this also failed but it is going to leave other people holding the bag, they will be the ones going to jail.

The Postmaster in Pennsylvania who was accused of back dating ballots in the election has sued his accuser and the right- wing news media outlet that pushed the story on the internet. The accuser recanted his story when questioned by Postal inspectors. But then recanted it again and said the only reason he recanted was because he felt pressured. The accuser got $196,000 on a go fund me site when he first told the story. The accuser no longer works for the post office and is said that he moved to WV. The Postmaster had a big Trump banner draped over his house, but the accuser said he was a Trump hater. The crowds forced the Postmaster from his home, there were guns drawn. This was republicans fighting republicans. I hope he gets every penny of the $196,000 the liar got. This is republicans fighting republicans.

Matthew Teague was a good book. I did not like the way the information was organized. They kept switching back and forth between story lines in different states, but it provided information that can’t be found easily elsewhere. It told of many republicans who would have done anything Trump wanted to cheat but also of the other republicans who stood up to the powerful political machine and declared the results correct and would not give ground even at the expense of their political careers and a steady stream of death threats to them and their families. It is not whether you win or lose, it really is how you play the game.

This country owes those people a debt of gratitude, they stood up for democracy and the American way. I can’t say that I believe in their politics, but I deeply admire their character. Politicians are known to be charter members of the PLR (path of least resistance). It is always easier to go long to get along. Of course, some republicans that first said the election was fine, but as soon as they were contacted by the Trump machine, they declared the election the most corrupt ever.

Today we have 93,194,892 cases of the Trump virus, four days ago we had 91,767,480 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 1,427,412 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus in the last four days.

They have found more dead people that voted, but they all seem to have preferred Trump over Biden. Say it isn’t so Joe. One thing is very clear if you voted your dead mother for Trump, you have nothing to worry about because the most likely will get probation at least as long as you are white. A black woman in Texas voted while she was on supervised probation and was sentenced to 5 years in prison.

It seems if you were worried about voter fraud you would punish violators severely. After all the republicans are changing all the voting laws to prevent “voter fraud” but aren’t interested in seeing the laws already on the books are enforce. The republican main purpose was to stop people from voting.

Barry Marrow, whose wife disappeared after going for a bike ride, pled guilty of voting his wife’s ballot in 2020 in fact, she seems to have voted several times. He was charged with her murder, but charges were later dropped after discovery was found to be faulty. If she is voting she can’t be dead, or can she? When asked why he did it, he said, “I just wanted Trump to win.” He got probation.

At the retirement community in Florida several residents voted twice once in Florida and absentee from the state they were from. They got community service. One Nevada official, Kirk Hartle, said he found proof of dead people voting and became a local celebrity because he had proof of dead people voting, His dead wife had voted in the election. When they investigated, they found the culprit, Hartle, himself. Hartle had inside information he knew dead people voted because he did it. Do you think he voted for Biden? He got probation.

Today we have 92,339,925 cases of the Trump virus, yesterday we had 92,194,892 cases of the Trump virus. That means another 145,033 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus today.

There was a mistake in yesterday figure it should have been 92,194,892 instead of 193,194,892 and the number of new cases was 427,412 instead of 1,427,412.

The death toll stands at 1,052,467 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,051,996. That means that another 471 Americans died today from the Trump virus.

Even the Kentucky republican Secretary of state, Michael Adams, told the state legislatures that voting machines are far better way to prevent voter fraud than paper ballots. It is much easier to commit voter fraud with paper ballots. With voting machines there is a back paper trail and the two must agree. Crazy Sidney tried to make the case that voting machines were subject to voter fraud via the internet, our voting machines are not connected to the internet. There is another problem with hand counted paper ballots and that is human error. Imagine how accurate someone might be after they counted a few hundred thousand paper ballots at 3 o’clock in the morning.

A member of the Kentucky state senator, Adrienne Southworth, has been touring the state telling the people how corrupt the elections are in Kentucky. This is a state where some counties voted at 90% for Trump and they still think that the elections were rigged.

The rats are deserting the sinking ship and the rat catchers are likely to get those left on board. One of Trump’s lackies, Jeffery Clark, home was raided today by the Department of Justice. Clark was an environmental lawyer with the Justice Department in the last few months of Trump term in office. Trump was going to put Clark in charge of the Justice Department and in turn Clark was going to use the powers of the Justice Department to help Trump steal the election. Clark looked funny standing there in his underwear as the police were raiding his house.

Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Marc Short testified before a federal grand jury investigating the Jan 6th insurrection. It is now everyman for himself in Washington, no one wants to go to jail for Trump anymore. No one is going to fall on their sword for Trump. As more and more White House employees spill their guts more of Trump’s lies will come to light.

The threat of violence hangs over any prosecution of Trump but the attorney general, Merrick Garland, says that will absolutely not be a consideration in deciding whether to prosecute Trump. He believes that no man is above the law.

Trump may have accomplished something; he has driven so many people out of the republican party that they have joined together with some dissatisfied democrats to form a third political party. The new party is called “Forward.” A third political party has been discussed for years but no one had provided enough escape velocity from their current political parties. Trump provided enough escape velocity for many. There are many republicans who no longer want to be associated with the party of the insurrection. They no longer want to be associated with Neo-Nazis, the racist, Proud Boys and the Three Percenters. Trump changed the face of the republican party.

The party is going to be for moderates in both parties who don’t want to be considered racists or Neo-Nazis or Trump thugs. This has been tried and didn’t work before, but things are different this time. What is different is the “never Trumpers” who were powerful republican leaders before Trump took over the party and the internet can be used to recruit new members. The republican party has become a refuge for nut cases like Marjorie Taylor Greene, most sane people don’t want to be associated with her. Trump biggest accomplishment may be killing the republican party.

Local Republican parties have a choice to make, focus on the future or focus on Trump’s claim that he was cheated out of the 2020 election. This has been the litmus test to get Trump’s endorsement. But now contributions to the republican party are down. Trump’s claim of crooked elections are filtering down to the state level. In Nevada the loser in the republican governor primary is claiming they were cheated just like Trump they did not lose they were chested. What will be the outcome of the new election cheating scandal? The Democratic Governor of Nevada will get four more years as the republican party will split because of the cheating scandal.

This is not the only republican that is using the Trump defense that they did not lose they were cheated. I said before no one will ever lose an election they will simply say they were cheated. It is much easier on the ego to say you did not lose you were cheated but the damage is being done to our election system. The more confidence people lose in our election system the less likely they are to vote.

Kentucky got hit hard during the recent flooding. This is right in the middle of Trump country where he won by 90%. Hazard Kentucky got 10.5 inches of rain and the river raised by 20 feet in a matter of hours. They use to say this was a 500-year flood but the problem is they keep happening more often. When you vote republican, you are voting for more global warming, more floods, more deadly forest fires and more droughts. Just as the republican party is the pro school shooting party it is on record as the anti-environmental party. They have denied that global warming was real until recently and now they say other countries are not doing anything, so we should not do anything either. Trump did everything in his power to repeal every environmental regulation he could.

The first home owned was built in 1950 it was not far from a small creek. We lived in it 18 years and then rented it. There had never been any water in that house from the time it was built. One Memorial Day in 1190 I got a call that asked if I knew my property flooded? I had no idea even though it only got about six inches of water it was a mess. Years later I sold the property to the renters who lived in it for several years. Now massive floods in that neighborhood have become common place FEMA has bought brand new houses in that neighborhood. It was unthinkable to see cars washed away by a small creek that you could walk across. Now you can expect at least two majors floods a year and you bet they were absolutely thrilled when Trump did away with air pollution regulations. Elections are about more than personality; they are about which way we want the country to go.

Steve Bannon was found guilty on two counts of contempt of congress. The only reason Bannon is not in jail today for scamming Trump voters out of a million dollars is that Trump pardoned him before he left office. This time Trump can’t pardon him again. Bannon thumbed his nose at the law, and it seems the law won. I routinely got subpoenas for my court cases, and you are more or less commanded by law to appear on that date. I had a vacation scheduled and received a subpoena for circuit court on that Monday. My wife wanted me to just ignore it. She never got over the fact that I would not ignore it and go on vacation.

The law has to apply to everybody and without subpoenas our court system would not work. People would simply ignore requests to come to court. It has to apply to all, and it must be enforced. A number of members of the Trump administration decided that they would just thumb their nose at the law. Bannon was just the first one to be prosecuted. Bannon finally relented and agreed to testify thinking that would keep from going to jail but it did not work.

The Build Back Better Bill may fail over one provision, the Carried Interest Loophole. No congressman will defend the tax loophole in public. It cuts the richest of the rich’s taxes by 50% and cost the country billions in taxes. Under the tax book these ungodly greedy need only pay 20% instead of 40% on income generated from managing investments. Hedge fund managers are compensated with a percentage of the profits made from investors investments. If a salesman was paid a commission on what he sells he would still pay the full amount of tax and carried interest is about the same, a commission paid for managing investments.

Doing away with the loophole that only a tiny fraction of Americans can use and costs the country billions in tax revenue is long over do; but one democrat Krysten Sinema is about to vote against the Build Back Better Bill in order to keep from eliminating the carried interest loophole. Mitt Romney has made millions with this loophole. This is a unique opportunity to eliminate the carried interest loophole because it can be done on a simple majority vote because it is in reconciliation bill. A separate bill would require a 2/3 majority vote. Since the congressmen are receiving huge campaign contributions to keep the carried interest loophole in place this is a one-time only chance.

The death toll stands at 1,055,975 today, yesterday the death toll stood at 1,055,059. That means that another 916 Americans died from the Trump virus in the last two days.

I am going to have to switch internet providers if the problems persist.

“The carried interest loophole is an absurd mischaracterization of income that allows about 5,000 of the richest people in America to divide (conservatively) 1.8 billion a year among themselves, for an average tax break of $300,000 a year.”

Loophole 101

Krysten Sinema will be handsomely rewarded by Wall Street for keeping the Carried Interest Loophole from being removed. Can you imagine what Sinema cut of that $1.8 billion loophole will be? She will never have to worry about her campaign coffers being low, all she will have to do when she needs a campaign contribution is call up the billionaires and say remember when I alone saved the carried interest loophole for you? It is time to pay the piper. She is the very definition of a crooked politician. The ungodly greedy already pay the smallest percentage of their income in taxes, less than the middle class, even less than the working poor when all state and local taxes are taken into account. If she was a real democrat, she would want to remedy that. She is a democrat in name only not in political philosophy.

Congressmen spend most their time raising campaign money far more time than they spend doing government work. That has to stop, this is why our overall tax system is regressive instead progressive. This is a good example of how those with the most money have the most political power. They only had to buy one senator to keep the carried interest loophole. There will be consequences in the next election, but she will be wealthy for life after all she has connections.

Today we have 93,897,604 cases of the Trump virus, four days ago we had 93,319,702 cases of the Trump virus. That means that another 577,602 Americans were diagnosed with the Trump virus over the last four days.

The death toll stands at 1,058,726 today four days ago the death toll stood at 1,055,975. That means that another 2,751 Americans died from the Trump virus in the last 4 days.

I finally canceled my internet service that started to work a couple hours after I notified them, I was cancelling their service. I hope the next provider is more dependable.
