Closing Thought–02Aug22

My regular readers know that I have a series known as ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ and this year especially a regular ‘stupid’ has been the Rep from Georgia, Taylor-Green….well she is not alone as far as stupid statements go.

The House has passed a ban on certain assault weapons, a feel good bill that has no chance in the Senate, and the Rep. from Colorado, Lauren Boefert has tied the ban on assault weapons with the eating of dogs….

Congress’s stablest genius, Lauren Boebert, appeared on America’s finest news network, NewsMax, to tell the world’s second-crabbiest shitlord, Sebastian Gorka, that banning assault rifles will lead to Americans eating Fido for dinner.

“If the citizenry in America is disarmed, then we are no longer citizens,” Boebert told Gorka, whose suit pocket sported an enormous handkerchief that looked like a crumpled pillowcase. “We are subjects. You know, here in America, we have gourmet treats for puppies. We have these amazing groomers for dogs. Well, in Venezuela, they eat the dogs, and it started because they don’t have firearms.”

It would be very sad for Boebert to have to eat her dog, but I’m disappointed that Mr. Gorka didn’t follow up by asking her how she would go about preparing dog meat. After all, she is a restaurateur of note. Perhaps she could smoke the dog over hickory and applewood chips, or braise it in a red wine reduction.

This ‘new’ batch of babbling buffoons do what they do best….outright lie…..she has taken two separate news items and combined them into one…..

Boefert type of ilk has NO intention of doing what the voter sent them to do….govern.

These people play to the camera….they go to DC to perform not to govern.

Closing Thought–20Jul22

Anyone that visits this blog knows that I think that there are more than one fool serving in Congress….people like Taylor-Green, Gaetz, Boebert, et al…I believe these idiots never intended to govern when elected but rather to perform for the cameras.

But I will admit that once in a awhile they surprise me and do something I can agree with (at least in principle)….like Trump they were those few occasions when I agreed with something that Trump said or planned to do (also at least in principle)…..

This is one of those times that I agree with the GOP idiots…..

Eighteen Republican lawmakers voted against the US allowing Finland and Sweden to join NATO.

Among the dissenters in the Monday vote were some of the party’s farthest-right members, including Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA), Matt Gaetz (FL) and Lauren Boebert (CO).

The vote was a symbolic one to express support from the House for the applications — the formal process by which the US can ratify new NATO members takes place in the Senate.

The House bill passed easily with 394 votes, leaving the 18 Republicans in a small minority even among their own party.

I am against this move for it will just agitate Russia and Putin even more….it will prolong all the animosities that are prevalent today in our foreign policy.

Everything the Congress is doing is just provoking more outbreaks of hostilities and giving the M-IC a free pass to sell more death and destruction.

I hate it that I agree with these GOPers….but a good idea is a good idea NO matter where it comes from.

“lego ergo scribo”

Guns, What To Do?

These are the bills that the House will be considering in aftermath of the latest spat of mass shootings……list compiled by Raw Story…….

Bill: H.R.3015: Raise the Age Act

Introduced by Rep. Anthony Brown, Democrat of Maryland.

This bill would prohibit the sale of certain semiautomatic rifles to anyone under 21. Currently, a person needs to be 18 to purchase one.

There are exceptions under the bill. They would include members of the armed forces or a full-time employee of the U.S. government who is authorized to carry a firearm.

This bill had two Republican co-sponsors, Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.

Bill: H.R. 2280: Prevent Gun Trafficking Act

Introduced by Rep. Robin Kelly, Democrat of Illinois.

This bill would establish a new federal penalty for gun trafficking, which could range from a fine to up to 10 years in prison. The bill also allows for the seizure of firearms and ammunition involved in the offense.

It would also be “unlawful to sell or dispose of a firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reason to believe that the person intends to sell or dispose of the firearm in violation of a federal law, or to sell or dispose of the firearm to a person in another state in violation of that state’s law.”

This measure had no Republican co-sponsors.

Bill: H.R. 3088: The Untraceable Firearms Act

Introduced by Rep. David Cicilline, Democrat of Rhode Island.

This bill aims to curb ghost guns, which are homemade guns that lack a serial number, making it difficult for law enforcement to trace the owner of the weapon if it’s found at a crime scene. The Biden administration directed the Justice Department to issue a final rule to ban manufacturers from making ghost gun kits.

The measure would require that all firearms need to be traceable, including guns that are made with a 3D printer. Only gun manufacturers are allowed to issue a serial number for a firearm, according to the bill.

In terms of penalties, a first violation of this law would result in a fine, no more than a year in prison, or both. If there is a repeat offense, a person would be fined, serve up to five years in prison, or both.

This bill had no Republican co-sponsors.

Bill: H.R. 748: Ethan’s Law

Introduced by Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Democrat of Connecticut.

This bill aims to regulate the storage of firearms, particularly in homes with children, by setting federal, state and tribal requirements. The bill establishes “requirements for firearms on residential premises to be safely stored if a minor is likely to gain access without permission or if a resident is ineligible to possess a firearm.”

A person could be fined up to $500, per violation, and if a minor or someone who does not possess a firearm obtains a firearm in the home and is injured or causes injury, the person to whom the firearm belongs can be fined, imprisoned for up to five years, or both.

There were no Republican co-sponsors to this bill.

Bill: H.R. 6370: The Safe Guns, Safe Kids Act

Introduced by Rep. Elissa Slotkin, Democrat of Michigan.

This bill would establish federal requirements for the storage of firearms on residential properties. The bill would make it unlawful if a person who has a firearm “knows, or reasonably should know, that a minor is likely to gain access to the firearm without the permission of the parent or guardian,” and if “a minor obtains the firearm and uses the firearm in the commission of a crime or causes injury or death to such minor, or any other individual.”

There were no Democratic or Republican co-sponsors for this bill.

Bill: H.R. 130: The Kimberly Vaughan Firearm Safe Storage Act

Introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Democrat of Texas.

This bill would establish federal requirements for firearms and ammunition on residential properties by requiring firearms and ammunition to be safely stored if a minor is likely to gain access without permission to the firearm.

The firearms would need to be secured, unloaded and separated in a safe and locked, or the firearms would need to be off the residential property and stored at a storage facility or gun range. The bill would also require those safes and storage facilities to be certified by the Department of Justice.

If someone violates this law in connection with a civil charge, and there is no discharge of the firearm, they can be fined up to $5,000.

If someone violates this law in a criminal action, and there is a discharge of the firearm, they would be fined a minimum of $50,000 and no more than $100,000, imprisoned for no more than 20 years, or both.

There were no Republican co-sponsors to this bill.

Bill: H.R. 5427: Closing the Bump Stock Loophole Act

Introduced by Rep. Dina Titus, Democrat of Nevada.

This bill would classify bump stocks as machine guns and require them to be registered under the National Firearms Act and prevents the manufacture, sale, or possession of new bump stocks for civilian use.

A bump stock allows “a semiautomatic firearm to shoot more than one shot with a single pull of the trigger by harnessing the recoil energy of the semiautomatic firearm to which it is affixed so that the trigger resets and continues firing without additional physical manipulation of the trigger by the shooter,” according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

There were no Republican co-sponsors to this bill.

Bill: H.R. 2510: The Keep Americans Safe Act

Introduced by Rep. Ted Deutch, Democrat of Florida.

This bill would make it unlawful for the import, sale, manufacture, transfer or possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device, which can be a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition. However, the bill allows existing magazines to be “grandfathered” in, so they can still be held in possession, but prohibits the sale or transfer of “grandfathered” large capacity ammunition feeding devices.

This bill also allows for the use of funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program for buy-back programs for such devices. Individuals who surrender a LCAFD under a buy-back program receive compensation.

There were no Republican co-sponsors to this bill.

Now you have the attempts to control/lessen the mass shootings…

Personal opinion here….,these are lame ass attempts that will go nowhere in preventing more mass shootings and more innocent deaths……

Basically band-aids for a gun shot wound (no pun intended).

Please read the bills and then tell me where the good will be.

Another fart in the wind from the US House of Representatives.

So much more to be said!

As the Senate tries to find a compromise on gun control legislation, the House is moving ahead with its own package on the issue, starting with an emergency markup this week.

Although lawmakers are currently on recess, the House Judiciary Committee returned Thursday for an urgent session focused on multiple bills intended to address the age limit for purchasing guns, the sale of large-capacity magazines, and firearm storage. During the markup, committee members approved the package, setting it up for a floor vote as soon as next week.

All in all a waste of time….only purpose this will offer is some fodder for campaign ads.

The New AUMF

AUMF–That is defined as the “Authority to Use Military Force.”

This post is for all those that are concerned about the use of nukes by Russia.

An AUMF is Congress way of passing the buck on war….so they can claim their hands are clean of war……there has been in the past a discussion about doing a way with the AUMF that was used to invade Iraq and the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan…..but you warhawks do not need to worry that your donors will go unrewarded for there is movement in the House…..

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) announced a new Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). If passed, the AUMF will allow President Joe Biden to deploy American troops to defend Ukraine if Russia uses chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons.

The Congressman issued a press release saying the legislation would establish important redlines and echoed Biden’s plea that “Putin must be stopped.”

“I’m introducing this AUMF as a clear redline so the Administration can take appropriate action should Russia use chemical, biological, and/or nuclear weapons. We must stand up for humanity and we must stand with our allies.

“As the President of the United States has said, Putin must be stopped. Accordingly, the Commander in Chief to the world’s greatest military should have the authority and means to take the necessary actions to do so.”

The bill titled “To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces to defend the territorial integrity of United States allies,” allows the President to determine if Russia has used WMDs. The AUMF terminates once the “President certifies to Congress that the territorial integrity of Ukraine has been restored.”

Similar to the 2002 AUMF, the legislation gives the President nearly a blank check to wage war. The bill does not include oversight on the determination of WMD use or sunset date.

Kinzinger announced the bill on Meet the Press, telling host Margret Brennan, “I don’t think we need to be using force in Ukraine right now. I just introduced an AUMF giving the president basically congressional leverage for permission to use it if WMDs, nuclear, biological or chemical are used in Ukraine.”

In a speech just days before voting for the 2002 AUMF, then-Senator Joe Biden likewise downplayed the risk President George W. Bush would use the authority to go to war in Iraq. “I will vote for this because we should be compelling Iraq to make good on its obligations to the United Nations…Approving this resolution does not mean that military action is imminent or unavoidable.”

From The ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ Files

My series on the most moronic of our ‘elected’ officials…..and if I were giving a prize then Georgia’s Taylor-Green would be leading in the voting…

These are a few of her latest stupidity….

writing for Vanity Fair, columnist Bess Levin tore into Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) for her recent suggestion that women are properly understood as being owned by their husbands.

“At a gathering over the weekend, Greene took the time to suggest that women are defined by being property of men,” wrote Levin. “Responding to Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s refusal to be dragged into the GOP’s culture war du jour — during her confirmation hearing, Jackson declined to provide a definition of a woman for anti-trans Tennessee senator Marsha Blackburn — Greene told the Georgia Republican Assembly, ‘I’m going to tell you right now what is a woman. We came from Adam’s rib. God created us with his hands. We may be the weaker sex, we are the weaker sex, but we are our partner’s, our husband’s, wife.'”

https://www.rawstory.com/marjorie-taylor-2657101937/

This fool never shuts up……

In the growing and alarming trend of Republicans accusing their political opponents of being pedophiles, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has led the charge.

It’s not surprising that Greene would embrace allegations of pedophilia against her political opponents. Before she was elected to congress in 2020, Greene was a proud supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which holds that the Democrats are part of a “global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles” (her words).

In the last month, charges of pedophilia, or “grooming,” seem to be everywhere. As Jonathan Chait explains in New York magazine, two stories are driving the increasingly prominent smear:

Marjorie Taylor Greene Goes on Alarming Rant Declaring Democrats ‘The Party of Pedophiles’

She went as far as accusing Romney and Collins of pedophilia….

ongresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has taken to accusing anyone who doesn’t agree with her as a pedophile — or a pedophile supporter. “Yes, Murkowski, Collins and Mitt Romney are pro-pedophile,” Georgia’s QAnon devotee said last night. Her proof? The Senators supported Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Greene, on a roll with pedophilia accusations, also said in the same rant, “The Democrats are the party of pedophiles.”

Without any basis for her dangerous rhetoric, the outrageous conspiracy theorist conveniently forgot to mention the real stuff that goes on with the Qnuts (like herself) on the far right, such as Donald Trump’s “I’m going to be dating her in 10 years” comment as he ogled a 10-year-old girl (see video at bottom), or the Federal investigation of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz for having a sexual relationship with an underage girl, or the Tennessee GOP’s push for a bill that allows old men to marry young girls of any age.

Marjorie Taylor Greene now calls anyone who doesn’t agree with her a pedophile

When is that coward of a Minority leader, a Speaker wannabe, going to step up grow some balls and handle these douche bags?

Running a close second to Green is a US Senator, Hawley from Missouri……

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was one of several Republican senators who either refused to define the word “woman” or struggled to come up with a definition.

Hawley’s initial definition excluded women who have had hysterectomies.

“Someone who can give birth to a child, a mother, is a woman,” Hawley told HuffPost. “Someone who has a uterus is a woman. It doesn’t seem that complicated to me.”

Closing Thought–11Feb22

From the ‘Can’t Fix Stupid’ files…….

Our Congress has our share of idiots representing people and then we have Morons…..and one of the largest mental midgets is one Taylor-Greene from Georgia……

She has made many claims, outrageous claims, that it is getting hard to follow her gaffs…..now we have cold soup making her rhetoric…..

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s latest headline-making comment involves … cold tomato soup. The Republican congresswoman from Georgia on Wednesday ranted about “Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress” (see the clip here), leading many to guess that the word she was looking for was “Gestapo,” Germany’s Nazi-era secret police. She also made a reference to the jail in Washington, DC, as the “DC gulag,” a reference to Soviet-era labor camps.

Needless to say, the gazpacho jokes were rolling on Twitter, the Guardian reports. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s take: “At least she leads by example. She clearly banned all books from her house years ago.” Greene had been criticizing the subpoenas the House of Representatives’ January 6 committee has issued to those in former President Trump’s circle when she went on the rant, Insider reports. The “gulag” comment was a reference to alleged January 6 rioters being held in the DC jail. As for the “gazpacho” comment, there’s no evidence that either soup or members of the Capitol Police force are spying on lawmakers or doing any of the things Greene claimed.

She was talking specifically about an allegation from Rep. Troy Nehls, a Republican from Texas, who claimed Capitol Police entered his office without his knowledge in November and took pictures of confidential legislative products, NBC News reports. He says intelligence officers later visited him to ask about one of the items photographed. The Capitol Police chief denied the claim, saying Nehls’ door had been left open after hours and protocol was followed. “If a Member’s office is left open and unsecured, without anyone inside the office, USCP officers are directed to document that and secure the office to ensure nobody can wander in and steal or do anything else nefarious,” he explained. Officers later followed up with Nehls’ staff simply to determine no other action was needed, he added.

You just cannot make this stuff up.

Where do they find such idiots?

Just proves that if you have the cash you can run….even if you have no intention of governing.

So very true…..’you can’t fix stupid’!

Yet Another Deal

This time it is a drug pricing deal.

The House recently came to an agreement on the drug pricing promise of the Biden admin….

House Democratic leaders are making a last-minute change to their deal to lower prescription drug prices to resolve a dispute that arose over the wording of the measure, according to a source familiar with the process. 

The compromise follows a meeting Thursday night between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.) and other lawmakers to resolve the issue as House leaders race to line up the votes for President Biden‘s social spending package.

The compromise will add an additional year of exclusivity before Medicare will be able to negotiate prices for certain complex drugs known as biologics, moving the total from 12 years to 13 years.

The last-minute dispute arose from how the text of the drug pricing agreement was drafted. The agreement announced earlier this week was to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices after a period of exclusivity: nine years for many drugs and 12 years for more complex biologics. 

This was actually written down in the text with the numbers seven years and 10 years, though, because drafters noted there is a two-year delay for the negotiation process to play out, meaning the numbers seven and 10 in actuality translated to nine and 12. 

Peters and a handful of other moderates wanted the exclusivity period to fully expire before negotiations could begin, the source said, effectively adding another two years, to bring the totals to 11 years and 14 years, depending on the type of drug

Delaying the start of Medicare negotiating drug prices by any amount of time was already a concession to their position. But many drug pricing advocates have still praised the agreement announced earlier this week as a step in the right direction, even if it does not go as far as they would like.

(thehill.com)

Yet another ‘kick the can down the road” compromise by Dems….which can die in the Senate ….and we all know how useless the Senate is these days.

The health industry has another win under their belt and it only cost $171 million…..

As Common Dreams has reported, pharmaceutical corporations and private health insurers spent $171 million on lobbying through the first nine months of the year, the most of any industry. Big Pharma’s 1,600 lobbyists outnumber members of Congress by a ratio of three to one.

According to the Post‘s analysis of OpenSecrets data, “The industry’s focus on drug pricing has increased dramatically in recent years as the issue became more top-of-mind for voters. In 2012, lobbyists registered to work on the issue of ‘drug prices’ 69 times for 20 different clients. In 2021 so far, they have filed to lobby on the issue 1,192 times for 242 different clients.”

Despite the fact that 83% of U.S. adults want the federal government to reduce the costs of medications, for which Americans pay two to four times more than people in other countries, the provision that would have authorized Medicare to do so was briefly removed due to the intransigence of a handful of right-wing Democrats bankrolled by Big Pharma—including Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), Sinema, Manchin, and Reps. Kathleen Rice (N.Y.), Scott Peters (Calif.), and Kurt Schrader (Ore.).

Closing Thought–03Nov21

I keep bringing to the attention of my readers through my ‘Can’t Fix Stupid” posts the moronic right and their complete disregard for the country and its government.

This brings me to Rep. Boebert, the blow hard wind bag from Colorado…or is it Utah?

It appears that Boebert’s staff has NO idea what district she represents or for that matter what state she pretends to represent…..

The campaign of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) mistakenly identified her as a representative of Utah in a report submitted to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

“Thanks for reaching out,” a spokesperson for Boebert, Jake Settle, said in response to an inquiry about the Forbes article that first reported on the filing. “I flagged this for our team!”

An earlier version of the report for the campaign’s third quarter of 2021, filed Oct. 15, listed Boebert’s state as Colorado. A revised version was filed Thursday and changed the state and congressional district from Colorado 03 to Utah 03, among other amendments. Following Forbes’ report, the filing was edited again on Friday to say Colorado.

Since her election to the House of Representatives last year, Boebert, a gun-rights advocate and Donald Trump disciple, has routinely made headlines for spreading conspiracy theories, vaccine skepticism and bigotry, and for her tendency to self-own, usually when attacking others.

She was named in a Rolling Stone report last week as one of multiple Republican members of Congress who communicated with organizers of the Jan. 6 attack in the weeks before the U.S. Capitol was stormed by a pro-Trump mob seeking to overturn the 2020 election. Boebert has denied any involvement.

This proves my point that these slugs are not in DC to govern but to obstruct….I mean if her campaign does not know where she represents then she is clueless and a worthless waste of skin.

Should We Or Should We Not?

That is the question the House of Reps is asking.

The question was part of a report I saw over the weekend….whether the Hose will consider legal action against those the defy a subpoena issued….considering?

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot will “swiftly consider” holding one-time Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon, and potentially others, in contempt of Congress for ignoring committee subpoenas, committee chairman Bennie Thompson vice-chair Liz Cheney said Friday.

The move came after Bannon formally advised the committee that he would be unable to comply with their requests, citing former President Donald Trump’s intention to invoke executive privilege. In a letter obtained by ABC News, Bannon’s lawyers said that until the matter is settled in court, they will not comply with the committee’s subpoena.

The committee last month issued subpoenas to Bannon and other top Trump aides Mark Meadows, Kash Patel and Dan Scavino, as part of its probe into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. An additional 11 subpoenas were issued last week to organizers of the pro-Trump rally that preceded the attack.

Meadows, a former White House chief of staff, and Patel, an ex-Pentagon official, are “engaging” with the committee, officials said. The committee had no update on the status of Scavino.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/jan-committee-swiftly-criminal-contempt-steve-bannon-ignore/story

This proves my point about just how feckless the Congress has become.

Marshals should have been on stand-by for there was a great possibility that their legal requests would have been ignored.

And yet they have to ‘consider’ whether to use legal force to compel those people to comply.

I standby my statement that these ‘elected’ officials are as worthless as tits on a flashlight.

Is This ‘Winning Through Intimidation’?

The GOP is quickly becoming an authoritarian party….something we have not seen in this country for a very long time.

I thought the GOP and RNC were pro-business….but apparently not.

The House has a select committee that is investigating the 06 January insurrection and for some reasonb the GOP is running like a very scared rabbit…..to the point that the minority leader of the House has issued a threat to business that cooperates with the hearings…..

Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is threatening social media and telecommunications companies that comply with the House’s investigation of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, while warning of a Democratic “surveillance state.” The California Republican on Tuesday took issue with investigators’ Monday request that more than 30 companies—including Apple, AT&T, and Verizon—preserve records relevant to the attack. He claimed compliance with the request to save records from April 1, 2020, to Jan. 31, 2021, would be a violation of federal law and “put every American with a phone or computer in the crosshairs of a surveillance state run by Democrat politicians,” per Politico.

Appearing Tuesday on MSNBC, Rep. Adam Schiff said McCarthy and former President Trump are “scared” and “don’t want the country to know exactly what they were involved in.” The Democratic-led committee, which includes two anti-Trump Republicans, wants to get a handle on communications between Trump and members of Congress, including McCarthy, on Jan. 6, though there’s been no request for records yet. “We’ve asked companies not to destroy records that may help answer questions for the American people,” says a spokesperson. “The committee’s efforts won’t be deterred by those who want to whitewash or cover up the events of January 6th, or obstruct our investigation.”

“If companies still choose to violate federal law, a Republican majority will not forget and will stand with Americans to hold them fully accountable under the law,” McCarthy threatened, claiming such companies would be “subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States.” CNN reports McCarthy’s office would not provide “a specific federal statute that a company would be in violation of if it complied with a duly empaneled congressional committee.” While the committee has subpoena power, requests for phone or social media records, especially those of members of Congress, could result in a legal fight, per CNN.

Could this be obstruction of justice?

https://www.alternet.org/2021/09/kevin-mccarthy-obstruction/

As I stated previously the GOP has become a party in search of authoritarian rule.  (More on this in a future post)

This swing to authoritarian swing should scare the s*it out of the American people….but instead they are embracing the stupidity.
