You can’t go home, but you can’t stay here, says Congress

Politico reports that thousands of troops were kicked out of their abysmal housing sleeping in the halls of Congress. After securing the American political elite during the inauguration they were summarily kicked out. They had to seek sanctuary in a parking garage. In response to cries of betrayal, they were allowed back in to continue […]

Biden overrides Trump EOs

Ol’ Joe had a busy day yesterday. After his inauguration, attended by literally dozens of people, he redecorated the Oval Office (removing the bust of Churchill and putting up portraits of FDR and Cesar Chavez), and then got to work governing as his mentor President Obama had. With pen in hand and phones at the […]

What do you do if you expect an insurrection and nobody shows up?

There aren’t a lot of photos of the crowd that showed up for Biden’s inauguration yesterday. That’s because there wasn’t much of a crowd. People joked that they were deploying tens of thousands of troops and law enforcement to help fill out the audience. Turns out they outnumbered the attendees by about 50-to-1. I mean, […]

Chatter on, Joe. Chatter on.

  Joe Manchin’s undies are in a bunch. Since he couldn’t get the 25th amendment to oust Trump from the Oval Office, now he’s going to try a different route?

But, walls don’t work, right?

What’s the current state of the police state in Washington D.C. look like you might ask? Upwards of 25,000 National Guard troops are there or enroute for security.

Democrats love them some new normal lately. Remember when masks, shutdowns, and social distancing were short-term pandemic mitigation efforts. Well, they’re the new normal.
