Lately during public hearings of the House January 6 Select Committee, Liz Cheney takes time to very personally put former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone on blast over his refusal to testify publicly. At the end of last Thursday's hearing, Cheney said, "Our evidence shows that Pat Cipollone and his office tried to do what was right. They tried to stop a number of President Trump’s plans for Jan. 6." So come on over here, Pat, and let Liz Cheney put a gold star on your Trapper Keeper!

After Cheney said that, sources started telling journalists that Cip was already being really very cooperative, but blah blah blah "serious institutional concerns and privilege issues" blah blah blah. Fuck off.

Dude knows everything, and Cheney knows it, and everybody else knows it.

We know Cipollone threatened to resignmultiple times over Trump's coup attempts, and that he called the letters former DOJ douche Jeffrey Clark wanted to send to the states instructing them how to toss out their election results a "murder-suicide pact."

According to Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony, on the morning of January 6, Cipollone was freaking the fuck out trying to make sure nobody would take President Ketchup Smears to the Capitol, because they would get "charged with every crime imaginable" if he went there. He said "please keep in touch with me." From the same testimony, we know Mark Meadows reportedly told Cip during the riot that Trump believed Mike Pence deserved whatever was happening to him in the Capitol that day.

During yesterday's hearing, Liz Cheney asked Hutchinson if the White House Counsel's Office was concerned about the things Donald Trump planned to say in his speech to the buck-toothed hordes that day, the hordes we now know Trump was well-fucking-aware were armed to the teeth. (He knew they weren't there to hurt him.) Yes, the White House Counsel's Office did have concerns about that!

He knows everything. As Charlie Sykes wrote this morning, if "Hutchinson’s testimony wasn’t the John Dean moment, she made it clear that the testimony of the former White House counsel just might be."

And today Cheney is reiterating her calls for Cipollone to GET IN A CHAIR FUCKER NOW FUCKING NOW OH MY GOD JESUS FUCK.

Kamala Harris Knew Kavanaugh And Gorsuch Lied To Her Face, Jesus Christ, Duh

In case you've been wondering where President Joe Biden has been this week, he's in Europe, doing things like "G-7" and "NATO stuff" and "King of Spain." (Well, he's not doing the king of Spain. Probably.)

But Vice President Kamala Harris is back home in America, and she's got some words to say about Samuel Alito and his lunch table full of Opus Dei creeps overturning abortion rights in a desperate bid to get the Virgin Mary to go to prom with them.

Before they murdered Roe, Harris was loudly shouting "How DARE they." Now they have dared. To NPR, Harris put it in perspective:

Ginni Thomas Wishes She Could Help The Jan 6 Committee, But ...

Two weeks ago, Ginni Thomas was raring to march on the Capitol like the brave patriots of January 6, 2021 — the ones who didn't get cold and "leave" — to tell those fake Americans on the House January 6 Select Committee what's what!

“I can’t wait to clear up misconceptions. I look forward to talking to them,” Mrs. Justice Clarence Thomas told the Daily Caller on June 16, after it came out that not only had she been spamming legislators with debunked claims of ballot fraud after the 2020 election but she'd also emailed with Coups 4 Dummies lawyer John Eastman to get updates on the litigation to overturn Biden's win.

Not to mention those texts to Mark Meadows endorsing the most batshit insane conspiracies and asking about rumors that the “Biden crime family & ballot fraud co-conspirators (elected officials, bureaucrats, social media censorship mongers, fake stream media reporters, etc) are being arrested & detained for ballot fraud right now & over coming days, & will be living in barges off GITMO to face military tribunals for sedition.”


But it seems that in the past two weeks, Mrs. T has had a change of heart.

Reviews Are In: Select Committee's 'Madness Of King Donald' Was Boffo Hit!

The New Yorker's John Cassidy noted a sure sign that the Trumposphere was nervous about yesterday's House January 6 Select Committee hearing: Much of Tuesday morning, leading up to Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony, Trumpers managed to get "Hunter Biden" trending on social media. The bots were very worried.

And Oh, Golly was there a lot of upset over the testimony from Hutchinson, who had worked in the White House as a top aide to Mark Meadows, Trump's chief of staff. That's probably not too surprising, considering all she had to say!

Surprise January 6 Hearing, Let's Watch It Live!


Hutchinson revealed, among many other things, that Trump knew there were a lot of armed people in the crowd that day, and wanted the metal detectors removed for his speech, because nobody was there to hurt him. Following the speech telling the faithful to go to the Capitol, Trump insisted he wanted to go too, because "I'm the fucking president, take me up to the Capitol now!' He allegedly lunged at the steering wheel of the armored SUV and tried to attack Bobby Engel, the head of Trump's Secret Service detail. Previously, after Bill Barr's AP interview saying there was no election fraud, Trump threw his food at the wall, breaking the plate and spattering ketchup all over.

So yeah, Trump mad. He performed his usual denial ritual, saying he barely recognized Hutchinson, but he'd heard "very negative things about her (a total phony and 'leaker')" and suggested she was just trying to sabotage him because she hadn't gotten a job at Mar-a-Lago. Because man, nobody does spiteful like low-level staffers.

IN RE Mitch McConnell's Response To Joe Biden's Undignified Comments About Piece Of Sh*t Supreme Court

Mitch McConnell can kiss our dicks with his tiny turtle chompers OW OW WATCH THE TURTLE CHOMPERS, SPORT!

Y'all. Hey. Hey y'all. Y'all hey.

Mitch McConnell said Joe Biden is being very bad at "dignity."


That's the joke, the end, good blog post, us!

So anyway, McConnell is just real upset about the way Biden talked about the Supreme Court this morning in Madrid. We guess he's mad Biden referred to the "outrageous behavior" of the Supreme Court, as if to suggest the partisan hacks McConnell and Donald Trump put on the Court without America's consent are filthy disgusting unwashed toddlers and not distinguished jurists. That's what happens when you put partisan hacks who act like filthy disgusting unwashed toddlers — misogynistic ones! — onto the Court, instead of distinguished jurists.

Supreme Court Kills EPA Too In Case You Thought It Was Just Tribal Sovereignty, Women, Classrooms Of Kids ...

This is fine.

In a decision that's certain to make getting the climate emergency under any sort of control truly impossible, the Supreme Court today sharply restricted the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. The 6-3 decision by the Court's "conservatives" makes it even less likely that the US will be able to reach President Joe Biden's goal of generating all the nation's electric power via clean energy sources by 2035, or to reach net zero carbon emissions overall by 2050.

The decision, by Chief Justice John Roberts, pounded a stake made of a dead whale's jawbone through the heart of the 2015 Clean Power Plan. The Obama-era regulations never went into effect, blocked by the Court in 2016 due to lawsuits from Republican states and the coal industry; those lawsuits eventually resulted in today's decision.

It might be nice to have a planet that can sustain life for large mammals like members of the federal judiciary, Roberts ruled, but the EPA doesn't have the authority to get in the way of fossil fuel profits to do it. If Congress wants to help keep the planet habitable, well then it can always pass a law. Easy peasy!

Capping carbon dioxide emissions at a level that will force a nationwide transition away from the use of coal to generate electricity may be a sensible 'solution to the crisis of the day.' But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme. A decision of such magnitude and consequence rests with Congress itself, or an agency acting pursuant to a clear delegation from that representative body.

Good luck getting that past Roberts's own party — and if it passes, good luck winning approval from the Roberts Court. It's not like a sustainable Earth is anywhere near as important as avoiding regulatory overreach.
