    one-time Trump wannabe showing buyer's remorse

    Boris Johnson and Joe Biden have had their first in-person meeting at Carbis Bay in Cornwall, where the G7 summit will start tomorrow.

    [​IMG]
    Johnson described Scranton Joe as a “breath of fresh air”,

    implying that the trust-fund baby is a smelly fart.

    Johnson enthusiastically said that he is looking forward to work w Biden on climate change and NATO issues,

    w the implication that the trust-fund baby is too ill-informed, too much of a mental midget,​

    I wouldn't take Johnson's words as a reflection on the prior administration. He is being diplomatic.

    I saw some of the Keir Simmons' interview with Putin and Putin says "He can work with Biden". We've gotten use to Trump and his cronies who say stuff off the cuff and meant to inflame to forget that most of the time World leaders go out of their way to be diplomatic.

    On a related note that interview really showed how sharp and dangerous Putin is. He never blows his cool even when asked about being called a "killer" and doesn't reveal anything. If you knew nothing about him previously you could think he's a very reasonable and pragmatic statesman.

    now that Trump's reign of terror / stupidity / corruption is over,

    the USSC says hello,

    The Supreme Court dismissed a challenge to the Affordable Care Act on Thursday in a decision that will leave the law intact and save health care coverage for millions of Americans.
    The justices turned away a challenge from Republican-led states and the former Trump administration, which urged the justices to block the entire law.

    The justices said that the challengers of the 2010 law did not have the legal right to bring the case.​

    The Orange Wig had warned the GOP lawmakers, with the threat of being primaried by a Trump-backed candidate, to not support Biden's infrastructure proposal.

    all 50 Dem Senators had indicated that they'd vote yes, needling 10 Republican votes in order to move Biden's infrastructure bill forward.


    As it turn out,

    Rob Portman is the Rep Senator from Ohio; after voting for the infrastructure bill to be moved forward, he wrote this op ed on the WSJ.

    Interesting to note a few things about senator portman... he is considered one of the best known "deficit hawks" in the senate, he is considered one of the most bipartisan republicans in the senate, and he is retiring.

    A Resounding FU to the Orange hair piece from the voters of the Texas 6th Congressional district.

    Rep. Jake Ellzey, defeated the Trump-backed candidate Susan Wright in a special election in Texas's 6th Congressional District on Tuesday,
    was sworn in by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday morning.

    portman should get credit for appearing (though retiring, I guess he was considered "safe") but more so for saying the infrastructure bill was anti-inflationary (important coming from a deficit hawk). But he also made a sketchy comment about trump deserving credit for furthering the discussion on infrastructure.

    Appeals court rules against Trump in documents fight with House Jan. 6 committee (msn.com)


    A federal appeals panel ruled Thursday, 9 Dec 2021, that a House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection should get access to Donald Trump’s presidential records.

    Trump fought House Committee's subpoena to the National Archives and Records Administration by arguing under executive privilege that releasing confidential documents
    would deprive future presidents of candid advice from aides. But President Joe Biden waived executive privilege governing the documents. The case focused on
    whether Biden’s opinion as the sitting president outweighed Trump’s, as previous cases ruled.

    "On the record before us, former President Trump has provided no basis for this court to override President Biden’s judgment and
    the agreement and accommodations worked out between the Political Branches over these documents," Judge Patricia Millett wrote for the three-judge panel.​

    14 Dec 2021 has been a very bad day for Individual 1 named in the Mueller Report


    • rosemary vrablic, Trump's (awa Jared Kusher's) persHoonal banker at Deutche Bank, who had been forced to resign, and later suspended by FINRA, has agreed to be interviewed by regulators.


    • A Trump-appointed federal judge ruled that the Treasury Department could disclose his tax returns to the House committee that requested them more than two years ago. https://www.cnn.com/2021/12/14/politics/trump-irs-disclosure-tax/in
      • in the last page of his opinion, the judge concluded that the House Committee can do whatever it wants with Trump's tax returns, including making them public

    in early 2016, when Candidate Trump was running behind Jeb, Cancun Cruz, Fatso Christie and Rubios for the GOP nomination, she was the first to predict that Orange hair will be become POTUS in 2017


    Conservative flame-thrower Ann Coulter says Trump 'is done'

    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.”

    “Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.”


    is she right on Trump again?​

    Coulter's comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)
    amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

    While DeSantis has so far sought to tamp down rumors that he’s angling for a possible White House bid, his rise within the GOP and growing national profile
    have irked Trump, who sees the Florida governor as owing his political success to him.

    Trump has privately griped about DeSantis’s refusal to publicly commit to foregoing a 2024 run if the former president chooses to mount another bid for the White House.

    But Trump has also begun to sharpen his stance on DeSantis publicly. In an interview with a South Florida radio host last month, Trump appeared to issue
    a challenge to the Florida governor, saying that he would beat DeSantis in a 2024 primary if he decided to run.

    “If he wanted to run, that's OK with me,” Trump said. “I think we'd win by a lot.”

    Trump also appeared to take a swipe at DeSantis during a recent interview with the conservative One America News Network in which he slammed politicians
    who won’t say whether they received a COVID-19 booster shot as “gutless.” DeSantis has repeatedly dodged questions about his booster status.

    Coulter pounced on Trump over those comments in a tweet last week calling the former president a “liar and con man.”

    Special grand jury ordered in Georgia's Trump election interference probe



    A Georgia district attorney's request to have a special grand jury impaneled for her investigation into possible interference in the 2020 presidential election by former President Donald Trump has been granted.

    The DA. Fani Willis, has said in interviews that the investigation includes a January 2, 2021 phone call in which Trump told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, "I just want to find 11,780 votes." Trump lost the state to Joe Biden by that margin, and the outcome was affirmed by several recounts.

    A special grand jury is unique in that it focuses on just one investigation, and can be impaneled for a longer time than typical grand juries. Willis's request stated that the special grand jury will have "an investigatory focus appropriate to the complexity of the facts and circumstances involved."

    If convicted, Orange Hair could face 110 years in prison
