    Trump Returns to the Scene of the Crime

    Trump returns to the Capitol for the first time since January 6th and receives a hero’s welcome from House and Senate Republicans—where he calls Milwaukee a “horrible city,” refers to the Justice Department as “dirty bastards,” and complains about Taylor Swift not endorsing him. Meanwhile, the same Republicans attempting to overturn Trump’s conviction are instead trying to prosecute Attorney General Merrick Garland. Plus, SCOTUS affirms legal access to abortion medication, Biden takes voters’ cost of living concerns head on, and Trump tries to woo CEOs with more tax cuts.

The rudder

It’s dangerous out here. Experience, insight, and common sense prevails. Can’t give up. Too much to lose we don’t even know about. Stay steady.

Great Podcast

No Dan, voters are dumb….

If voters were smart, Trump would have never been elected in 2016, almost reelected in 2020 and now a coin toss from winning 2024.

Why the notion that voters are dumb can’t be a very possible explanation and causal link to this manure storm is beyond me.

We have a voter problem in this country.

Wannabe insider

Too poor to give an opinion as an insider but…Would it be a good idea if maybe we can see VP Kamala once in a while and give us a sense of insurance if anything happens? It’s somewhat hard to reconcile being mad about the Dobbs decision and the USSC with a seemingly lackluster support of the VP. Hope we see more of her!
