I was going to post a picture of Trump's face pasted onto a LARP king, because that is what Trump and the Republicans treat the border.

And then I stumbled across this, and think that it is a great idea for a kids camp.

Trump Takes His Windmill Obsession to the Next Level: ‘They Kill Everything’ (yahoo.com)

Trump Takes His Windmill Obsession to the Next Level: ‘They Kill Everything’

Ostensibly showing up on pal Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Wednesday night to discuss the recent summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump instead spent much of his time grumbling about the thing he hates most: windmills!

Over the years, Trump has obsessively railed against wind turbines, accusing them of causing cancer, killing birds, and being just plain ugly. That obsession hit the next level on Wednesday night. “They’re making windmills all over the place. They kill our land and kill our birds. They kill everything,” the disgraced ex-president groused.

He went on to claim that wind turbines were “not good” because, in his opinion, they only provide “intermittent energy” and that’s “not going to power our great factories.”

In this special report, MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber examines how this New York law is key to the probes and why the Manhattan District Attorney has the power to indict an entire company.

DOJ emails expose the 'pure insanity' of Democrats 'moving forward' without accountability for Trump - Raw Story - Celebrating 17 Years of Independent Journalism

DOJ emails expose the 'pure insanity' of Democrats 'moving forward' without accountability for Trump

The Democratic leaders of the House Oversight Committee, at least, get it: Any effort to hold Donald Trump accountable for his many crimes and attacks on our democratic system will reap political rewards. Their ongoing investigation into Trump's attempted coup after the 2020 election, which culminated in Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6, is paying off dividends by getting new information to the public and keeping Trump's seditious, authoritarian behavior in the public view.

This article was originally published at Salon

This week, the committee, led by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, released Department of Justice documents to the Washington Post that detail the lengths Trump was willing to go in order to steal the 2020 election. "The endeavor involved the White House chief of staff and an outside attorney, who peppered department officials with requests that they said came on behalf of Trump himself to investigate baseless claims of election fraud," the Washington Post reported, noting that the DOJ resisted most of the pressure to appeal to the courts to overturn the election result. DOJ officials, undoubtedly aware that their correspondences would someday be made public, seemed annoyed that Trump's team was inundating them with conspiracy theories, which Trump clearly hoped would compel the DOJ to falsify evidence to support his coup.

"Pure insanity," one DOJ official griped in an email to then-acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, in response to Trump's Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sharing "a YouTube video that described an outlandish plot in which the election had been stolen from Trump through the use of military satellites controlled in Italy."

It's fun to laugh at Trump's own appointees privately blasting his views as "insanity," but it's becoming clear that actually, there's a nefarious rationality to what Trump was — and is — doing.

It's unlikely that he or Meadows actually believe the nonsense they spout about stolen elections and Italian satellites. Indeed, Trump let it slip on Fox News this week that "we didn't win but let's see what happens on that," which is to say, he tacitly admitted that they are still trying to overturn a legitimate election. Instead, Trump and his people are betting that these conspiracy theories could be propped up as excuses for what was an open attempt to steal the 2020 election. Plenty of Republicans in both federal and state governments were, at the time, thrown by demands that they break the law on Trump's behalf. Since then, however, the "pure insanity" that is insurrection logic has completely colonized the GOP. The party has reorganized itself entirely around the goal of making sure that next time Trump tries to steal an election, he pulls it off.

The fake vote "audit" being conducted in Arizona is moving closer to the predetermined, fake outcome of declaring that Trump "really" won Arizona, even though he most definitely did not. CNN reports that the data is being taken to a remote "lab" in Montana, where the Trumpist conspiracy theorists will make a big show of "examining" it before releasing their inevitable and false conclusion. Republicans are so thrilled with the propaganda value of these fake audits that they're pushing to take them nationwide, even in states Trump won. It's all theater, meant to support false claims that Biden "stole" the 2020 election and to justify the push to "steal it back". That push is expansive, to the point of being all-encompassing of the Republican Party. Zack Beauchamp of Vox documents the frightening level of success the GOP has already had in pursuing their mission to turn the U.S. into a one-party authoritarian state like Hungary is now or Mexico was for most of the 20th century.

In 2021, the GOP has started subverting election agencies in earnest; a new report from three pro-democracy groups found that 14 Republican-controlled states have passed a total of 24 bills this year interfering with election administration. Georgia's SB 202 is perhaps the most egregious, allowing the Republican-dominated state legislature to take over the vote-counting process from county officials.
So what are Democrats, who technically have a majority in both houses of Congress and control the White House, doing to stop Republicans from converting the U.S. to a one-party authoritarian state? Well, mostly a whole lot of nothing.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced a plan for beefed-up enforcement of voting rights
but admitted that without Congress passing new voting rights legislation, the power of the DOJ is sadly limited. He also acknowledged that many jurisdictions "have utilized abnormal post-election audit methodologies that may put the integrity of the voting process at risk," but it's not at all clear that the DOJ can do anything unless Congress empowers them to act with new legislation. And, of course, that's not happening, because — sing it with me now — a handful of Senate Democrats, most notably Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, refuse to end the filibuster and allow legislation to be brought to a vote on the Senate floor.

But hey, at least Democrats still have an opportunity to use congressional powers of subpoena and investigation to reveal the full extent of Trump's malfeasance in office and — maybe, just maybe — bring something like a consequence to bear on the 45th president for trying to end democracy, right?

Unfortunately, there are troubling signs that Democrats intend to fall short in that department, as well.

Get rid of the filibuster and the next Trump will rule as Trump wished he could have. What a way to run a railroad.

Addressing human caused climate change, racial inequity in the US, managing the end game of the epidemic, re-funding public schools, growing our economy are all being blocked by Republicans and you want to talk about Democrats falling short.

If Jan 6 was a leftist false flag operation as Republicans are trying to say. Why block the investigation?

i'm glad reality is rearing it's ugly head. i just hope it's slow and painful as he did to us, the 600k who've died- the world and our allies that he almost destroyed.

Any federal convictions of Trump would be a rallying point for his many supporters for a federal pardon. If he's in a NY state prison, a federal pardon won't do any good. Donald is pretty stupid and stubborn though and when he's staring down a prison cell he should go nuts! He will have every elected republican he can get dancing and howling on the NY courthouse steps, it should be quite a sight.

i know everyone wants their pound of flesh; we would be better off if he just stopped breathing. seriously.

like a second term, nothing good is going to come of this and put it to rest so we can move on..as long as he is around in some way, we won't.

he needs to complete.
