How Are Republican Trump Supplicants Like Fainting Goats?

It's time to answer the pressing question:

How are Republican Trump supplicants like Fainting Goats?

A fainting goat is a breed of domestic goat that stiffens when startled.

Trumplican's are domestic terrorists who get startled and freeze when confronted with the truth.

 A fainting goat may fall over and appear to faint. But in actuality it goes into a myotonic state 

Trump worshipping minions go into a catatonic state when they see and listen to him.

Fainting goats - also called Myotonic Goats - in America have a southern origin. They were first discovered in Tennessee in the 1880s.

The majority of the followers of the Trump cult hail from southern states that fought with the Confederacy to overturn American democracy. 

An interesting fact: The Myotonic Goat is very similar to the condition seen in humans which is known as Congenital Myotonia, in case you wanted to see another tie-in between the two species.

I hope this post satisfies your curiosity on this very important subject. You're invited to return when I discuss other animal species similar to Trump acolytes.

Why is Jim Jordan in Congress Defending an Insurrection When he Should be in Prison?

He was involved in the most sweeping sex abuse scandal in the history of American higher education - to say nothing of college sports.

Jim Jordan, who was the assistant wrestling coach saw daily sexual abuse (as several witnesses testified under oath), but his involvement was swept under the rug by courts who gave small settlements to the abused athletes at the Ohio State University wrestling program.

Somehow, against all odds and sanity, the same sexual abuse enabler ran for Congress and won the seat for Ohio since 2007. Since that time, he's risen to the higher ranks of Republican extremists with antics like chairing the clown show Benghazi hearings that were thinly disguised attacks against Hillary Clinton's political future.

Jordan's crowning achievement thus far has been leading MAGA followers down rabbit holes where the 2020 election was stolen, and Biden is to blame for all the economic chaos in the world and America.

By not wearing a jacket in Congress like everyone else on both sides of the aisle, he's staked out his individual "tough guy" image meant to impress the weak of mind.

Now we know eleven Republican lawmakers from the House - including Jordan - sat down with the former president and plotted to overturn the 2020 election hours before Trump sent out his infamous tweet, " Big protest in DC on January 6. Be there, it will be wild." 

When the Jan. 6 committee subpoenaed Jordan about his involvement in the coup attempt, he refused to appear.

Jordan's office has admitted that he was one of the lawmakers whose texts to Mark Meadows (regarding overturning election results) was recently discovered.

There's no doubt that being Trump's favorite Ohio lapdog has furthered Jordan's career. Like the rest of the seditious Republican lawmakers involved in the insurrection the chance of their going to jail is slim to none.

Jordan should be rotting in prison for his part in the worst sex scandal in American college history. Instead, he's openly defying the Constitution with the most crooked president in the history of the United States.

Is Mark Meadows the Un-Named Witness Trump Tried to Intimidate?

It was almost another "perfectly fine" phone call to someone Trump wanted to do his will. 

But that someone - who just happened to be an upcoming witness for the Jan. 6 panel - didn't pick up the phone and instead reported Trump's attempt to reach him/her to their lawyer.

The lawyer contacted and informed the Jan. 6 Committee.

The committee contacted the Department of Justice which is now investigating the attempted phone call from the former president.

The question is "who is this upcoming witness" that Trump was so worried about he took a stupid risk and personally called to intimidate?

-----------------------------------------------

Rolling Stone Exclusive: 7/14/22 

Trump's Lawyers Think Mark Meadows is Going Down

-----------------------------------------------

My guess is the call was made to Mark Meadows.

I say this for several reasons

First, Meadows hasn't totally cooperated with the J6 panel. 

He was cooperating at one point, then Trump told him to clam up. And he did.

Secondly, the last few J6 hearings have dropped some bombs about Trump from close White House aides that paint a picture of Meadows complicity in not stopping Trump's brazen plans to overthrow the election.

Meadow's former assistant Cassidy Hutchinson provided damning testimony that revealed how afraid he was to deal with Trump's lunacy.

You can bet that the DOJ has been exploring Meadow's actions closely, especially after Hutchinson's testimony. They may have enough on him to offer a deal - immunity from charges (or reduced sentence) in exchange for first-hand quotes from Trump directly linking him to his co-conspirators in Congress and outside lawmakers and activists working with him to stop the electoral process.

Finally, it's not likely Meadows would take a fall and go to prison for Trump, regardless of how afraid he is of him. With new information flooding out of the J6 panel weekly the odds of Meadows taking flak from witnesses increases.

In summary, the DOJ would have the smoking gun it needs to indict and convict Trump of treason and other serious charges.

Who'll Be First to Indict Trump? 'Teflon Don' is Stuck with a Series of Sticky Legal Charges

The courts are finally closing in on Teflon Don.

Because he's never been convicted - thus far - of a major felony during his law-breaking career some people refer to Donald Trump as the Teflon Don.

I'm thinking that nickname is going to have to be changed in the near future. Why you ask?

Let's start with the fact that you can Google a List of Lawsuits involving Trump on Wikipedia. It's a long list. He's paying out more for lawyers than Uruguay's annual GNP. Eventually he'll run out of his donor's contributions and the RNC will stop funding his legal battles.

Here's the most serious court threats he faces:

It's a tie for the most serious threats to the Teflon Don between the Department of Justice's investigation on the insurrection, and the Fulton County Georgia charges of interfering with a state election.

There's a separate DOJ investigation involving 15 boxes of classified documents that were taken to Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida. The DOJ convened a grand jury who are currently looking into the matter.

The hits keep on coming...

Two related investigations by New York State and City officials are currently being carried out to determine whether the Trump Organization has committed financial fraud. One is a criminal case being conducted by Manhattan district attorney and the other is a civil case being conducted by the New York Attorney General.

How worried is Trump?

I'll put it this way; yesterday Liz Cheney on the Jan. 6 panel reported an incident of Trump calling an upcoming witness (who didn't answer the phone). He/she contacted their lawyer who called the Department of Justice who's investigating the incident. He's so afraid of the truth that he's personally trying to intimidate witnesses. 

The Jan. 6 committee has been doing an excellent job of getting the story out about Trump's plans to overthrow the 2020 election. More witnesses show up every week with damning testimonies against the Teflon Don.

The only question I have is who is going to indict and convict the Teflon Don first?

Today's Jan. 6 Hearing is a Continuation of the Summers Biggest Hit on TV

Netflix and other streaming platforms have been getting some serious competition from an unlikely source - Congressional hearings.

It's unprecedented. It's the Jan. 6 Committee which has been attracting tens of millions of viewers this summer.

With six hearings already history the seventh today promises the same production value that has attracted millions of viewers thus far. According to Nielsen, there's been a cumulative audience of 55.3 million. 

That's without counting all the reruns and prime time recap programs of the hearings on platforms like MSNBC and PBS. Even more impressive are all the major news stories the hearings have been competing against.

The committee has offered millions of people a riveting narrative of Trump's coup attempt based on facts. The documentary images and eyewitness testimonies given under oath are noteworthy.

The Jan. 6 committee has set a new standard for Congressional hearings by making them more compelling without dumbing them down. They put on a mass-audience civics lesson for a nation that no longer teaches civics in too many of its classrooms.

The "series" has carried a strong narrative; a separate theme for each individual "episode"; good use of camera, sound, and graphics to emphasize key points. We've seen compelling characters like Cassidy Hutchinson whose revelations have shaken Trump world.

No one is predicting that Trump supporters will drop their idol regardless of the massive amount of evidence being shown. 

A combination of political polarization, the advanced state of media fragmentation and the power of the right-wing media machine working overtime to discredit the hearings, has all but assured Trump's Big Lie will live on for the foreseeable future.

But the rest of America will know the truth. That's as important as holding all the culprits accountable for their attempt to upend a peaceful transition of power and our democracy.

SNAP! It's All-American Pet Photo Day!

Get out your camera!

Its All-American Pet Photo Day. 

Today is a day solely dedicated to appreciating our lovable pets who make life better every single day.

While our pets almost always enjoy the limelight, this day encourages us to make it even more special and make them the main focus all day. 

Today, people upload photographs of their pets on social media and share the love for their furry or feathery friends with thousands of people online.

History of All American Pet Photo Day

"People have been raising pets for centuries and animals have been found in almost every culture and community. Initially, dogs were kept by aristocrats for companionship and hunting, and they were symbols of elitism. However, by the 19th century, the middle class also began developing an interest in keeping pets, and not just dogs, but also fish, rabbits, dogs, reptiles, etc. Having pets serves a fundamental human need for caring and it is a symbiotic relationship that benefits animals and human beings.

Pets provide a plethora of physical and emotional benefits and provide companionship to people who are living alone or the elderly who do not have a lot of social interaction with other people. In fact, there are even therapy animals, mostly dogs, who are brought to visit children in hospitals or people in nursing homes to enhance their physical, social, cognitive, or emotional well-being and functioning.

In recent years, the advent of technology has brought social media into our lives and has given a platform for people to showcase their pets. In today’s society, we can even find dedicated social media accounts made and managed by pet parents. It’s safe to say that pets hold significant importance in our lives. All American Pet Photo Day is a perfect opportunity to appreciate our pets who give us unconditional love." Source -

Don't be shy. If you have a photo of your pet share it on social media. It makes for good karma all day.

Waldo came from the Land of Waldos, which is filled with Waldos just like him.

Gaetz comes from the Land of Trump, which is filled with assholes just like him.
