Oh look, another Big Lie.
A rather chilling report came out in the Washington Post last night, that the feds are worried QAnon insurgents might be trying to infiltrate the National Guard for tomorrow's inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. That's on top of worries about actual insider attacks by QAnon terrorists who actually are part of law enforcement and the Guard. There aren't specific threats, but the FBI has been paying attention to chatter. So either they are totally on top of this, or they aren't. Wheeeeee!
Over on Fox Business, Boxwine 2.0 AKA Maria Bartiromo, who is getting her own primetime Fox News show to spread her crazy and who has been more committed than most to spreading Trump's fascist Big Lie about winning an election he actually lost, has a theory about that report and what REALLY happened on January 6.
Wyoming Republicans censure Cheney for voting to impeach Trump.
The Republican Party Central Committee in Carbon County, Wyoming, has censured House Rep. Liz Cheney for her extreme anti-mob position. The censure resolution, which passed unanimously Monday, claimed that Cheney defied "the will of most Wyoming Republican voters," the only ones who matter, when she voted to impeach that one-term loser president Donald Trump last week.
The resolution goes on to claim that a "vocal majority of Wyoming Republicans" believe that there were "significant irregularities" in the 2020 election. There weren't. These people are idiots, but they're gonna build a church on the rock of Trump's Big Lie.
Cheney voted to confirm President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory, which is a real thing that happened in the real world. She said she wasn't happy about the results but the January 6 session of Congress was “not about President Trump. It's about following the Constitution."
Trump wasn't pleased. During his pre-siege rally, he told tens of thousands of his supporters that “we got to get rid of" Cheney. Gangsters are usually more subtle.

What could possibly go wrong?
Remember back during the summer's Black Lives Matter protests, when we worried about those mystery federal copsoldiers patrolling Washington DC with no identifying badges or name tags? If the federal cops wouldn't identify themselves, many wondered, what would prevent some militia yahoos from showing up and pretending to be militarized cops, for purposes of mayhem? A version of that quandary is now a worry in security preparations for Joe Biden's inauguration tomorrow, as the Washington Post reports. The FBI briefed law enforcement yesterday that rightwing extremists have been talking about pretending to be members of the National Guard, in hopes of infiltrating the inaugural.
On top of worries about an "insider attack" by Q-tainted soldiers, we can now add the possibility that a bunch of cosplay militia might try to make their way among the real troops. Even if nothing comes of it, that has to have members of the Guard on edge. Here's hoping nobody from the Virginia Guard arrests a member of the Minnesota Guard for talking weird, don't ya know? Or far worse.
Goodbye, you lying liar, you won’t be missed
Professional liar Kayleigh McEnany is now just a liar without a lectern. The White House press secretary and Hatch Act-violating Trump campaign adviser packed up her office Friday and fled to Tampa, Florida, the home world for Kayleigh McEnanys. Unlike her predecessor, Stephanie Grisham, who never held an actual press briefing, McEnany gave briefings but they were filled with lies and insults. It's the difference between never taking your kids to Disney World and taking them to a burned-down building and saying it was Disney World.
McEnany's reportedly working “remotely" until Wednesday when Donald Trump's kidney-stone-passing presidency finally ends. Even honest people sometimes phone it in when they “work from home" during their last few days on the job, but McEnany did find time Monday to tweet some empty, hypocritical praise for Dr. Martin Luther King.
Faith without works is dead, and McEnany's actual work is disgustingly racist. Here's what she said about Senator-elect Raphael Warnock, the pastor at Dr. King's former church.
Conservatives like McEnany smeared Dr. King as a communist when he was alive (and for quite a while afterward). What's worse than the bigoted slander is that McEnany, a government employee, implies that Warnock didn't “fairly" win his Senate runoff election.
