Assault on the United States Capitol

Has anyone established any linkage between BLM and Antifa or anti-fascist groups? If so, I'd be interested in reading about it. If not, folks should be careful about linking the two. I'm confused... Do you think there's something incongruous between being anti-fascist and being involved with BLM?

Lauren Boebert - Gun Nut in Congress

Here she is with the hat and glasses on: Screen Shot 2021-01-15 at 2.11.29 PM.png I'm thinking they are not the same person. That picture on the right is highly edited, enhanced, and processed. As far as I know, the only video captures we have of her are pretty pixelly and low-resolution. So I woul...

Lauren Boebert - Gun Nut in Congress

Not out of the realm of possibility, but I also think it's a stretch. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough who it actually is. The clip of that woman on the bullhorn has been played quite a few times on several networks, so there's probably a lot of attention focused on identifying her right now. Tha...

U.S. Representative Tour Guides for Insurrection

It had to be more than Boebert, if only because she's a newbie and thus isn't going to be deeply familiar with how the interior offices are laid out yet. As has been reported, they went to the Office of the Parliamentarian, they went to a Congressman's (little known) working space instead of his ac...

It was a tweet, I believe. But I also don't see that as clear-cut an example of bad behavior as some people seem to think it is. It may have been a simple case of poor judgement.

The name I keep hearing attached to this is Lauren Boebert. As do I, but I can't tell how much of it is related to the mis-dated photo of her with the isuurectionists, and how much of it is based on anything else. I can't think of a single article I've seen that mentions her name in relation to the...

Presidential Approval Polls 45: 2017-2020

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll pegs Trump’s approval at just 34 percent, the lowest in four years of tracking opinions of the president’s job performance. More than six in 10 voters — 63 percent — disapprove. It should be 9 in 10, taking out the fringe. It's absolutely insane that 34% of Ameri...

A longer version of that video was posted upthread somewhere. I remember seeing it at the time and getting a sick feeling in my stomach when I saw the cop getting crushed. Do you know if that's the man who died?
