The plot doesn't just thicken, it solidifies :)

On a different subject from a recent newsletter re dogs and cats: This is kinds ci ute :)

Story of Adam & Eve's Dog

Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you anymore. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."

And God said, "I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve. And it was a good animal and God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.

And they were comforted.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."

And God said, "I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the Supreme Beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was happy.

And the Cat . . .

didn't care one way or the other…

18 USC § 2383 — Rebellion or insurrection

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."

Telling a knowingly armed mob to "...walk to the Capitol..." to obstruct the authority of the United States Constitutional counting of the Electoral College votes is the very definition of "sets on foot" & "insurrection." Refusing for over three hours to respond while the Capitol was under attack on 6 January 2020 having been directed to go there by President Trump is the definition of "aid or comfort" to their illegal actions & aims. It is a violation of the sworn Constitutional Oath that the "laws are faithfully executed."

18 USC § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons...in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States...or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."

Documented communications by President D. J. Trump with lawyers & federal & state officials who've repeatedly lost in courts to then groundlessly dispute Electors & then choose to submit "fake electors" to the Congress—— ad nauseam, is the very definition of "seditious conspiracy." A hub and spoke conspiracy with D. J. Trump at the hub, at that.

Can Stupid be any stupider? I have officially demoted the orange slob from moron to idiot. Maybe I should just go all the way to imbecile. I’m sorry, I don’t intend to insult anyone who suffers from the above and who can’t help it if they are lacking in intellectual capacity. I specifically use these terms as a diagnostic reference to a deeply deficient person who is torturing us and still trying to be the most powerful person in the world.

Only slightly off topic and noteworthy: Camp Hale today designated a National Monument. Remember when citizens worked together to save the world from fascism? Here we are again, a bit behind but on the right track. Today's disintegrating world community begins to heal when Trump and Putin are in prison, and Americans and allied nations work together again. All honor to the 10th Mtn. Division and all who served against tyranny. Time to step up again.

And the beat goes on.... What we need is the forensic equivalent of grabbing Trump by the ankles and holding him upside down over some place like the Grand Canyon until he 'fesses up about where he stashed those documents.

MSNBC has been on this all evening, too—still is, if anyone's not already tuned in. Relevant WaPo reporters. (Poor Ruby. You should conduct a caption contest.)

I am only 3 pages into Washington DC Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone's book, "HOLD THE LINE" and I have cried, laughed, and marveled at his profound and awful insights about the January 6th insurrection at our Capitol, where he was almost killed defending it. I highly recommend we all read his book, and then VOTE accordingly.

i love the thought of sweet karma if it turns out the key impetus to nailing trump for Obstruction of Justice is the evidence provided by a hireling who is likely underpaid and maybe even possibly illegal (i don't care), to put him away for 20 years.

warms my cockles.

Trmp will steal the pennies off his own dead eye.

Ruby is a magnificent bat, dragon, or angel.

Ruby Tuesday at Bat!

Trump’s feet should be on fire about now because there’s a mole in his atmosphere. There’s always one in a mafia. Wonder if he/she turns up dead...hope not.

May I request that from now on, if you're posting one of your pithy and trenchant epistles about the intolerable criminal peccadillos of the orange shitgibbon, you always put a picture of Ruby at the top? Much appreciated ;-))

We can only hope the walks closing in on trump allow us to see his day in the dock to answer to the people for his crimes against the Reoublic.

Like the mob boss wannabe he is, trumpo has always managed to get somebody else to handle his "stuff". Sounds like this time there's actual evidence he stepped in it hisself 🤞
