Your Retribution Opportunity

I have to begin this piece with a word of credit and thanks to Steve Brodner who, in his opinion piece of January 2, 2024 in the Washington Post entitled, These politicians denied democracy on Jan. 6. Now they want your vote., did much of my research work. As of this writing there are 147 Republicans who voted not to certify the electoral college results of the 2020 election despite overwhelming evidence to the back up said results and even after they were attacked by domestic terrorists earlier in the day on January 6, 2021. Several have been implicated in complicity in the planning and/or execution of the illegal events of that day. By virtue of this vote, all 147 of them are in my opinion and that of many, many others, at minimum, accessories after the fact.

Blue Backlash

In Tuesday’s article I coined the term “Blue Backlash”. I hope Democratic operatives and candidates take it seriously and use it where applicable. Its potential exists in all but a few very gerrymandered red districts. Today I want to explain it in a bit more detail. Continue reading Blue Backlash

Let’s “travel” Kansas for a few minutes.

I really don’t want to write about Donald Trump, but I again I feel I must. On Thursday of last week, he was the 1076th person to be arraigning in DC Federal Court on charges related to January 6th. That was the biggest American political event of the week just passed and I’d like to comment on it below.

The Anti Democracy Party

On September 21, 2022 the House voted on the Presidential Election Reform Act. Basically, it plugs many of the loopholes that Donald Trump tried to exploit to overturn the free and fair election he lost in 2020. The vote was 229 in favor, 203 opposed and one not voting. Nine Republicans joined all 220 Democrats who voted in voting for the resolution. The nine Republicans who also voted for democracy are all leaving Congress at the end of this term. All 203 of the other Republicans (most of whom are on the 2022 ballot) voted against the resolution and in the process American democracy.
