      One of Trump’s constant cries is that American allies aren’t spending enough on their militaries and that the US is thus carrying them. While there is a temptation to scorn this argument because it was made by Trump, it has a fair bit of truth to it, as Matt Stoller suggested today: The American military […]

She’s scary

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is probably not going to turn the country into a socialist paradise by herself. The idea is ludicrous even if some of her ideas have merit and deserve consideration.

No, AOC is scary for a whole other reason: she takes full advantage of her time in committee meetings. I heard this on the way home tonight and her questioning blew me away. She should give lessons:

I have no idea what her future holds but it appears that she recognized the awesome opportunity she’s been given and she’s not going to waste it.

If she can inspire the rest of the party to be this tight, informed and bold, it will be scary indeed.

The right to righteous indignation

For three years, the majority of voters in this country have been told that only Trump’s voters have the right to be angry and that any attempt to get to the bottom of what actually happened to our election in 2016 would be the equivalent of a coup.

But if Trump actively participated with the Russians to use stolen email from the DNC, just like Nixon had his burglars break into the Watergate, then I don’t want to hear a single utterance from the neo-Nazi MAGA heads who have dragged this country into the gutter and ruined our reputation on a global scale.

If they can find hacked emails and conspiring with the Russians convenient, then there’s nothing they wouldn’t do to get the White House. The whole election and every “win” on the Republican side who rode to victory, is called into question.

That’s what Matt Gaetz’s menacing tweet was all about last night. When the top starts to go, it’s going to take every corrupt Republican who participated with it. That’s what they fear. They all fall down.

Circa regna tonat.

But let’s get one thing straight: no Trump voter has any right to be angry. They got three free years of their own coup and stomped viciously on anyone who got in their way. No media outlet should dignify this outrageous narrative so that their testosterone fueled rage threatens to keep the rest of us passive.

It’s time the rest of us unleashed our own anger.
