That Free Press opinion piece is really bad. It accused a woman who had not signed the letter supporting Hamas of supporting Hamas.

It also varies wildly in what it is trying to say and where. Ideological neutrality is good when it comes to "woke", but bad when it comes to Israel. It's good to stop giving money to schools that are ideologically neutral, but schools have to be ideologically neutral, as that is the only way to save universities.

Just a very confused piece all the way through.

I am just curious, wouldn't it be possible for the House Democrats to nominate Adam Kinzinger and just pile on with voting for him. At the end of the day, you would only need five Republicans to join and its over before anyone knows what happened. Adam would shut down the Biden sham inquiries and secure funding for Ukraine and Israel and keep the government open past mid November. There isn't anything that he would do, that the Democrats couldn't live with and he would be a heck of a lot better that anyone being considered.

But they warned “so neither you nor your dumb little buddies should attempt anything from this movie" and the Republicans didn’t listen.

Jim "The Seditionist" Jordan as speaker. Talk about giving weapons to Democrats for 2024, it's a gift of political AR-15s. You may think you're done with Jan. 6th but it's not done with you. And what if Trump flips on people. I always said if Trump goes down he won't go down alone.

Jordan is radioactive don't get to close to him.

Why isn't Jordan indicted?

For those who (luckily for them) don’t know where that lady got the “watermarked ballots” and Spaceforce lines came from I can enlighten you.

I doubt she watches herself but those talking points come from Infowars while Steve Pieczenik was going on before the election. Many of the conspiracy

So much for consensus or negotiation. Jordan is going to try to bully his way to the top spot.

And this surprises exactly who? Gym doesn't do negotiation, he could not care less about consensus, he is all about absolute power and the only one he takes orders from is t***p. He will try to force the impeachment of Biden, evidence free. He will shutdown the government and demand the end to all of t***p's prosecutions. Republicans had better damn well know what they are voting for, but my guess is the threats have intensified and we are not talking about Hannity.

We are subject to collective punishment. Let's say I'm a person, or we're a community that is not just carbon-neutral, but even carbon-negative. Individually or collectively we actually reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Day in, day out, year after year. It doesn't matter in that the catastrophes of climate change will visit upon us all equally.

I hate to say this, but objectively, and with the above paragraph in mind, what is true is that Americans have worked hard to earn the domestic political sh*t that is headed their way.

Growing a backbone can be a slow process. However, once the coccyx is established, the rest can fill in quickly. Being near the asshole, the coccyx must realize s/he does not want to be seen as the asshole so begins to differentiate and separate from the asshole's discharges.

Once the coccyx realizes that a spine is more popular than an asshole, change happens, and reality begins to shift.

Perhaps the GOP House members are beginning to see this distinction and realize being closer to the brain, way beyond the asshole has its advantages.

Can’t wait for Space Force to release the 500 K indictments! I wonder who they are 🤦‍♀️

Would a donor revolt be "saving" American Universities if the big donor refused to write checks until the Poli Sci and History departments got on board with teaching that Biden stole the 2020 election? If they shouldn't do that, why should they be directing the position of the faculty and administration on other political statements?

There are no "republican normies". 🙄 I'm so sick of ya'll saying there is. EVERY DAMN ONE VOTED PARTY LINE WITH TRUMP. None of them DARE to stand up to their orange Julius. Stop saying there's any that actually CARE about our country and not their pockets.

In 1932, Hermann Göring became President of the Reichstag. Jordan isn't a Nazi, but his commitment to democracy is similar to that of Göring.

It's pretty clear that the GOP is quickly becoming a bunch of "survivors" who are unable to place country before party if it involves messing with their livelihood.

It truly does demonstrate that if you don't have a good foundation of values...that they can erode over time after a whole bunch of "lesser of 2 evils" decisions in the past couple of decades or so.

Which has led us to the "Jim Jordan is better than NO SPEAKER of the House" logic, right?

At least if Jordan is elected the title can change to "Ranter of the House."
