Well then, it looks like a bunch of stupid people just got suckered out of thousands of dollars because they believed in Trump.
So, what else is new?
There was a little in play than just courting voters.
As it turns out, the Democrat's strategy beat Trump's cheating strategy and 60 lawsuits that came after.
Next came January 6 and the fake electors strategy which all failed.
I can't wait to see what they're cooking up for 2024 with Trump just steps away from "Ol' Sparky" ~ (figuratively speaking.)
"when the next one hits our shores we are better prepared for the onslaught."
And hope that we don't have a mini-Trump in office to kill off another million people.
Try a pawn shop. Trump Dollars might come in vogue 100 years from now as a collectors item in history's "worst president ever" category.
That was just one of many attempted coups. There will be more in the future. The GOP isn't going to give up because of a few speed bumps. Their whole authoritarian game plan is at stake. So, they'll be back with a new game plan ~ probably in about 18 months.
As the GOP's situation becomes more dire with each passing failure, I expect to see some bloodshed this time.
"Also what about SS payments to seniors like me and retirement pay and disability pay for retired vets? Willwe get payed?"
You're not alone. Every retiree on a fixed income was asking the same question, especially since past near misses and close calls have taught us to never say never.
America's adversary this time was about more than just party differences. We had a political adversary that was hell bent on cutting the throat of democracy and intended to do so by splitting the country apart, demoralizing (starving) the citizenry into submission and taking control of the monetary system.
Under those circumstances we had every right to be scared. And the evil genius behind these attempted coups since 2020 is none other than the GOP themselves who made promises to Russia that they and their masthead (Donald Trump) failed to keep.
Don't underestimate Joe Biden. I know he's trying to give McCarthy a chance to save a little bit of face but lacking that, Joe Biden is the master strategist. He'll bring the hammer down when all else fails and McCarthy will go back to the House with his tail between his legs if he's not careful.
"DeSantis floats "day one" pardons.
He didn't really say that. Actually, he said he was going to review all the convictions and possibly issue some pardons.
It was a wishy-washy, non-committal, briming with insincerity, promise. But I can see where it might swing some of Trump's disenchanted base over to his side . . . if they weren't listening too close.
Which was the whole purpose anyway, wasn't it?
Trump also set Mike Pence up for attempted murder.
My God! Trump's anger has been fermenting for 4 years, come November 2024. Can you imagine what this guy would do if he ever got his hands on power again.
If you think he's batshjt crazy now, just wait.
Try Second Degree or Manslaughter. It was Trump's decision to let the riot rage on while sat in his dining room, watching and yucking it up to his great delight.

"He is a good guy and has children all over the place. What can a guy do to help him out?"
Hit him over the head with a 2 x 4 and get him neutered. You'd be doing him a favor.
A lot of people were in the room, including attorneys. Why didn't they quit their jobs and run straight to the press, some of whom are targets of Jack Smith's investigation right now.
I don't see Meadows name on that list. Maybe that's because he's a WITNESS . . . not a target.
The bottom line is I'm not going to rush to judgment and that's final.
Innocent until proven guilty. Remember that?
I just don't see any evidence that Meadows was a co-conspirator. And nobody has testified anything to implicate him in January 6. If something turns up differently, I'll blast him out of the water.
Right now, my impression is he's talking (BIG TIME) to Jack Smith and trying to avoid being sucked in as one of Trump's scapegoats.
When this J-6 case goes to trial, you can bet that Trump will scapegoat everybody he can think of to get himself off the hook.
The only thing Roberts is committed to is preventing any more dirty, double-dealing details to get out about how he's been harboring a bunch of greedy grifters who are selling Supreme Court decisions for expensive "gifts" in the name of friendship. ON HIS WATCH.
All the time proclaiming the Supreme Court's high ethical standards.
Mary Cooper was a flat earther. Her son, Sheldon, asked her if she wasn't worried about falling of the edge when Mary told him her religious group was taking their annual retreat aboard a cruise ship.

"Normally one would eagerly assist law enforcement or investigators if one "did their best" and can prove it."
Normally, yes. But in Trump's administration, nothing was normal. Meadows didn't have the authority to speak for the President who was yucking it up in his dining room enjoying the show on TV.
Apparently, neither did anybody else have the authority to usurp the President.
As for "doing his best" I recall Meadows saying that he approached the President in the Oval Office so many times, with the same results, that it was useless to continuing asking.

"Unfortunately, due to Pres Putin's action, Bakhmut is little more than a pile of rubble."
True, but it's still "territory" that Russia desperately needs to claim as a "win" to save face for the folks back home who are already demoralized with the war in Ukraine.
Actually, they do but just not in writing. The ethics of a nominee is supposed to be thoroughly researched by the Senate before they approve a nominee.
But that was before Trump turned the Supreme Court into a political football.
As I said before, the fish rots from the head down. Just follow the bouncing ball. Republicans >>> Senate >>> U.S. Supreme Court.
I think I was referring to the investigation of Eastman's connection to Ginni Thomas that could force Justice Thomas to resign or retire to defend his wife.
I don't know if that Eastman investigation is completed yet or if it's bundled into another case.
I haven't heard Eastman's name come up recently, but he might just be part of the bundle along with Giuliani and the fake electors case in Georgia and elsewhere.
The object now seems to be a badly dented, crater pocked, war trophy called Bakhmut which Russia desperately needs to highlight a (somewhat tarnished) victory parade in Moscow. A face-saver, so to speak.
Maybe one way to, at least partially, go about keeping the Supremes on a shorter leash is to change the nominating process.
The fish rots from the head down. If we expect the highest standards, start at the beginnings. Take the nominating process away from the President and turn it over to an independent, non-partisan, panel of jurists who themselves have an unimpeachable record of high standards.
How hard can that be?

Biden's bipartisan power is that he makes friends . . . not enemies.
While McCarty has to tip toe around his members for fear of making one of them angry enough to call for a vote to have him booted out of his Speakership.
