Only indictments can pierce the MAGA disinformation bubble.
My hope is that all the indictments are in the works. Bannon’s “threat” is laughable because IF the R’s regain the House, their only focus will be to sow as much chaos as possible (“nothing to see here”), no matter who is serving prison time.
We won’t heal until he wakes up, indicted and convicted, in the dementia ward of a penitentiary far far away. Maybe Utah.
They’ll tell him he’s the King of Club Fed. He will believe them. I personally will fashion the crown of thorns. He should not chew on them. But he might.
The entire family and his innermost circle should be prosecuted for criminal abuse and neglect of an elderly patient.
That’s what it takes, my brothers and sisters. Anything less defies the rule of law and casts doubts on our very structure and integrity. We doubt our core.
And we’ll continue to wince in pain.
Behold the energy of the blood moon. And use that sucker to propel Good. It’s our job as citizens. Participation is all.
That ends my GregTalk. As you were…
I am as frustrated as anyone, including Greg, who wants to see justice done to the trump cabal.
This is an excellent piece, spot on.
The ones who are getting away with everything is as “guilty as sin”as the saying goes.
Many Americans have died from the virus that tfg has left unchecked for many months during his one term. And there have been many awful happenings to Americans who have done nothing wrong, unlike this grifter, liar, mobster, and his supplicants, and who continue to walk free, infuriates me to no end.
I sometimes look to the heaven and wonder, not when will Garland and the Biden administration do anything, but when will God do something to right the wrongs of these people.
When will, as Diego Maradona, Soccer Player said, “the hand of God” get American out of what is a slow death march to an authoritarian country? When will there be retribution, yes, retribution, be handed down to hoodlum tfg and… for his/their part in the killing of Mr. Khashoggi?
The absence of punishment for these people has emboldened the radical right to keep going downhill to authoritarian. Do they even know what they are getting into, and what they will put other Americans through? And do they care? I don’t think so. The caul of revenge covering their eyes, is thick so they will continue down that road until death of America and Americans, will they part, if ever.
Eventually, something has to give. Nothing lasts forever.
The big question is "when will Garland grow a pair?" Congress can't do it for obvious reasons. Without the Executive Branch stepping up, we are, well, shit outta' luck.
"This is a nest of vipers, hellbent on destroying our democracy. Indictments are the mongoose. Unleash them."
How about adding a few more to the list: MTG, Boebert, Gosar, Gaetz, Jordan, Hawley, McConnell, etc.
I agree with you Greg. All the indictments in the world mean nothing if they are not enforced. Narrative matters. I believe there are good people working furiously to set things right. But moving at a snails pace is not beneficial to narrative, especially since we are almost upon the 2022 election cycle and all of this will be significant as we head into campaign season. Please never stop writing - keep putting your words out. Your posts, books and articles help to counter the narrative! Thank you for your hard work :)
Bannon. I've run out of expletives and curses about Bannon. He's another one that came from the Breitbart swamp to try and foist his worldview on the rest of us -- another one of those, "take MY country back!" people. His perp walk yesterday, such that it was, is another example of his rather childish view of the world. "Listen to the signal, not the noise." Well, what the fuck does that mean? Anything? I don't think so. It's Bannon war cosplay, like his "War Room," or promises to "take down the Biden regime." How ridiculous is it to be talking about taking down the Biden "regime" like Uncle Joe is Kim Jung Un?
The pieces of his January 5th podcast that I've heard are damning for him. I heard some pundit, somewhere try to make the case that maybe Bannon was just talking about his wish list for January 6th. That's not what I heard. I heard one of the planners, if not one of the financers, talking up the "Big Day" as if he couldn't WAIT to see the violence and destruction of the administrative state, oh!, and the Capitol, for good measure. I surely hope that before his liver fails, he's made to pay SOME price for that. Liver failure would be satisfactory, but prison time would be better!
The Dems narrative should be loud and clear: “Trump and Company are MURDERERS”. Reiterate the amount of hundreds of thousands who have died and are still dying due to false information spewed by their states representatives. Pardon my vernacular, but fuck mainstream and social media for not screaming these important deadly issues enough!
I got kicked off of Twitter for apparently saying not so nice things about TFG and his family but it took them years to finally remove him. Justice is questionable now in our country. Just look at our Supremes who now govern the most important seats in our nation. Dangerous and pathetic…
Damned straight, Greg, and tysvm 4 saying it, loud & clear
It took NY 30 years to get Gotti, but he died in a prison hospital. Trusting in NY's AG James beating the Feds; she's tougher than Garland.
Greg Sargent has a good opinion piece in WaPo addressing this. What the magagoons are doing is sedition. Mass media is facilitating retention of most of the public in cognitive dissonance mode = keeps benefiting the rads. It seems it's time we petition elected officials to start a congressional commission to establish first, all of the know facts, investigate to nail the ringleaders at all levels in media and politics.
