WATCH LIVE: AG Nominee Merrick Garland’s Senate Confirmation Hearing

Politics • Views: 22,233

His chance at a Supreme Court seat was stolen from him by Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party, but now he’s back (thanks to President Biden) and he’s almost certainly going to be the next Attorney General — replacing William Barr, the astonishingly corrupt crony installed by Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Garland will take over a DOJ politicized by Trump and corrupted by Barr and Trump.

It was Trump and Barr who actively interfered in ongoing investigations into Trump.
It was Trump and Barr who actively stopped investigations into Trump and his associates for fear that they’d lead to indictments.

Cleaning up that mess is job 1.

Prosecuting those involved in the insurrection to overthrow the govt is the next huge task, and that too is due to Trump corrupting the levers of government, including at the DOJ, FBI, and law enforcement (DHS among others).

But GOPers are insisting that Obama politicized things, and skip over Trump. It’s ss/dd from the GOP.

“Religious liberty” means very different things to secular people and Republicans.

I expect that it’s the secular religious liberty Garland supports, and I’m glad they didn’t get into that difference.

There’s a lot of camera tests in there. They’re checking to make sure the filters work, panning and zooming (do they have zoom lenses on those?) work, what does the rover’s immediate environment look like, a few selfies to identify if there was any damage done on the trip down, etc.

What’s driving the Repubs and the “liberal media” crazy is that the $600B “bipartisan” bill was only ever meant to do one thing: Drag out the passage of a relief bill through bad faith negotiations. As well as setting up a scenario where the entertaining of a much smaller bill would lead to constant whining about how Biden/Dems were refusing to “compromise.”

At the core of the “I got mine, so fuck you!” philosophy is that you were always entitled to “mine.” And that’s really what Meghan is expressing here, this idea that she has an entitlement to the vaccine and Dr. Fauci is standing in her way. What she really wants is not someone who “knows the science,” she wants someone who will open access to the vaccine to anyone who wants it so she can use her money to force her way to the front of the line.

That’s really what it is, he’s trying to leverage his vote for Biden’s nominees to get his way on the relief bill. And that’s only because he failed to get the WH to enter into “negotiations” with Senate Repubs about their $600B joke “bipartisan” bill.

But doesn’t that mean they only begin their forensic accounting, and then the findings of that are used in the case for fraud? I’m waiting for the really good stuff to come out, but I think that’s going to take awhile. “The waiting is the hardest part.”

Trump’s tax returns could provide compelling evidence in the criminal probe if they differ significantly from other financial statements reported by the Trump business, said Daniel Horwitz, a white-collar defense lawyer and former Manhattan prosecutor. But in addition to records, he said, prosecutors will likely need witnesses who could “testify about false documents and why they were falsified.” Reuters

Meanwhile, all the lefter-than-thou folks have cheered how big a win this is and how this, THIS is going to be the thing that assures a real progressive in the position, as if someone even more left-wing will manage to get approved if Tanden can’t. And if/when they don’t…it’ll all be Biden and the Dems’ fault for abandoning them and why they’ll rally to sabotage every single fucking thing the Dems try to do for the next four years because this is the true way to Progressive Utopia, or some goddamn shit.

We’re only a month in, but apparently Biden and Dems are already being treated as the utmost of failures and betrayers from every single goddamn side, and the press is doubling down on learning the exact wrong lessons from fucking everything by giving GOP conspiracy even more uninterrupted time with zero pushback and then deciding even further that we don’t actually need to hear the Dems’ side of anything now that they ostensibly run things. Only the GOP, Trump voters, etc. deserve to be heard, even when they’re peddling shit about stolen elections and how Pelosi is the real culprit of the 1/6 attempted coup.

In a polite society, where actions had consequences… the folks who continue to frame the questions being asked are still the same folks who attempted to normalize Trump. They’ve stopped carrying the news conferences because there’s actual news being disseminated there and to have to speak to that instead of whatever framing they choose to place their carefully selected pieces of information might have the unwelcome result of actually informing the public…

My fave local commercial FM station ran an ad from a Wisconsin water park. The park started running the ads as soon as WI loosened their safety restrictions last summer. Immediately after the water park ad, the station ran a PSA about Covid awareness and safety. It was a pretty subtle move, but I don’t think it was coincidence. I’ve traded texts with the station before and I know they’re very Covid-aware.

My best friend when I was a young had polio in his right foot. When he walked his right foot would land on his heel and his foot would then rotate right which caused a noticeable limp. He was very sensitive to anyone who asked what was wrong. And his one hand, I forget which, was also semi crippled.
“Wrong? What do you mean? I’m what?”
We had to tell him it wasn’t personal, maybe they care, and it did sometimes look as if he was injured.

hi

I am back from the Cheyenne VAMC. I got my second Moderna shot. So far, I’m still alive. The nurse tells me that the effects from the booster may be worse than the original, so we’ll see what happens.

After the orthopaedic clinic nurse called me this morning, they actually scheduled me for an appointment.

When I was called back to look at my hand, the doctor there wanted to know about my fatty tumours and how I was feeling. (?)

It turns out the guy they really meant to see has a similar name to mine, and they mangled his when they called him for his appointment. Since he was not in the room and I answered, they assumed it was me.

After that got straightened out and I saw the correct doctor and nurse, they noted my right hand is not doing well (think that picture of Mitch McConnell’s hand some months ago and add a whole bunch of swelling). They could not determine the cause of the bleeding under my skin, but the blood goes about a third of the way up my right arm.

The nurse spent considerable time cleaning up the mess (I’m still bleeding) and re-wrapping my hand in a new bandage. She also sent my wife home with a bunch of supplies.

Going into Wyoming, Interstate 80 was closed due to wind, as was Interstate 25 north of Cheyenne. The wind in Nebraska was awful; it seemed better west of Pine Bluffs, Wyo. There must have been a million trucks parked in every lot west of Sidney waiting out the winds. Coming home I took the back roads to and through the Panhandle to avoid the closed roads.

As for the Covid vaccine, I understand it usually takes close to a day to get the side effects after your second shot and only 1/4 of the people who get it have severe side effects. Most are just achy and maybe have a low grade fever.

I ordered some yarn for my next weaving project. Last Monday. From Houston. The retailer actually got it in the mail a couple days ago (I am impressed.) The post office was closed for a couple days, so I totally understand that it might take a while to get caught up, but why in heaven’s name do they put the following up in their tracking?

February 22, 2021
In Transit, Arriving On Time
Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered by the expected delivery date. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

No, it won’t be arriving on time because there is no evidence that it has left Houston and they say it’s coming tomorrow.
I’ve seen this verbiage before and it means that it’s still sitting in the last post office it was tracked to. It’s not moving within any system. It has been delayed and will arrive a day or two late. Tomorrow they will admit this. It’s OK. They had a natural (and unnatural) disaster.

The View is not a show I watch with any regularity. Just saw bits of it repeatedly since I had radiation appointments everyday at the time it was on. And they always had it on in the waiting room.

So I guess my main question is why they have Meghan on there? Unless she is the token white whiny conservative? Then again they brought guests like Chris Christie on to talk about political campaigns - which strikes me as similar to the Sunday morning shows, bring on GOP talking heads to hear the latest set of standard talking points lies.

Didn’t include the issue in the first impeachment, abusing the power of the office for political gain.

The article did have these helpful suggestion:

The country, both political parties, and Biden himself would be well served to pull in the reins while they can. Because the Trump amendments are not written into the formal Constitution, statutory changes can at least partially repeal them. For instance, Congress and Biden can close loopholes that Trump used to move money around and evade the confirmation of nominees. They can make it explicitly illegal for a president to use pardons to obstruct justice or engage in criminal acts. (This would not revoke any pardons a future president might issue, but it would make a president think twice before issuing a pardon that might expose him to a corruption investigation after leaving office.) They can strengthen Congress’s oversight power by fast-tracking judicial review of congressional subpoenas. In their book, Bauer and Goldsmith listed dozens of such proposals. There is no shortage of options.

Unfortunately, we’re seeing no movement in Congress to adopt any of these proposals.
