Sigh. You know, Biles actually cared about other people besides herself, said she didn't want to compete that day because it would overall hurt the scores of her teammates.

Compassion for others. Must be punished. It's the Rethuglican way.

Kirk is an armchair athlete who yells 'Walk it off" when a player gets injured. As I said on another thread concerning people like Kirk, they're sitting in their comfortable seat and not putting their body at risk.

Conservative white males like Charlie Kirk are intimidated by women like Biles. He is displaying exactly the type of misogynoir Biles has put up with since coming to prominence in the sport, not to mention being open about sexual abuse. And not all of it has come from men, either.

Guys like this revel in kicking someone when they're down, not even realizing that what Biles did was heroic. Not just for the team but for herself.

Conservative males can't stand it when a woman says "no."

"Rightwing extremism" is a redundant phrase.

228 GOP lawmakers call on Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade

(CNN) Nearly 230 Republican members of Congress told the Supreme Court on Thursday that it should overturn Roe v. Wade and release its "vise grip on abortion politics."

The new brief is the latest filing in a dispute that will be heard next term and represents the most significant abortion-related case the justices have taken up in nearly a half a century. The 6-3 conservative court, bolstered by three of former President Donald Trump's appointees, could gut, or invalidate court precedent, and that's what the GOP lawmakers are calling for.

Con males and many Women cons HATE Women and insist that they only have sex when and with who they authorize. Their dream to watch Women dying in back alleys to punish them is coming.

You cant vote for ANY republican and support Women at the same time, it is impossible.

When I say hate what I mean is as long as you act properly you are OK, but if you act independently they instantly go from tolerating you to hating you.
ANYONE who still supports the GOP is a domestic TERRORIST.

Congressman Devin Nunes Sues NBC Claiming Rachel Maddow Smeared Him

California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes sued NBCUniversal Media alleging that MSNBC’s liberal talk show host Rachel Maddow defamed him with on-air suggestions he’d conspired with a Russian agent to rig the 2016 presidential election for Donald Trump.

Nunes, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, says Maddow has repeatedly targeted him with defamatory statements that accuse him of obstruction of justice and treason. Nunes said Maddow has also called for him to lose his committee post and be stripped of his security clearances.

His approval ratings should be in the basement total asshole

DeSantis turns his ire on Biden instead of Covid-19 as it rages in Florida

(CNN) Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has a message for President Joe Biden: He's not getting out of the way even as his rejection of masking and public health guidance risks fueling his state's raging Covid-19 cases.

DeSantis relished the chance to climb on a national stage to battle Biden on Wednesday, after the President accused him and Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott -- who preside over the two states with most new infections over the past week -- of worsening a pandemic that once seemed to have abated.

I'm glad the adults in Washington are back in charge

Was just going to post this.

Let’s see how long it takes Rightie to complain about government discrimination just like they do every single time these agencies release these reports. (Like there aren’t already enough WNs, WSs, and other violent cons already inside these agencies, themselves. :problem:)

Fuckin idiots

Texas House Speaker signs civil arrest warrants to return absent Democrats to chamber

AUSTIN, Texas — House Speaker Dade Phelan late Tuesday signed 52 arrest warrants for Democrats who left the state for Washington D.C. in July and have yet to return to the House chamber for the second special legislative session of the year.

The warrants came after Texas House Republicans voted to direct state law enforcement to track down and compel the attendance of absent Democrats by a vote of 80-12, the second time such a vote has been taken during this quorum-bust.

Blocked again

Republicans Again Block Action On Voting Rights And Gerrymandering

For the second time this summer, Republicans prevented the U.S. Senate from opening debate on the For the People Act, a sweeping package of voting rights, campaign finance, redistricting and ethics reforms. Republicans also blocked two bills featuring provisions of the larger package: a limited ability for states to engage in partisan gerrymandering and a broader disclosure of dark money.

All three bills were blocked by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) asked for unanimous consent to open debate on them early Wednesday morning.

Michigan County GOP Censures Senate Republicans Who Found No Election Fraud Evidence

The Republican Party of Macomb County, Michigan voted on Thursday to censure three GOP state senators whose investigatory panel found no evidence of fraud in the 2020 presidential elections. Macomb County is the state's third-most populous county.

The party's executive committee voted unanimously to censure Senators Ed McBroom, Lana Theis and John Bizon. The three senators served on a Senate Oversight Committee which issued a June 2021 report concluding that there was no fraud in the state's November 2020 election.

A Trump appointed judge who would've guessed

Judge orders U.S. to reinstate Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" asylum policy

A federal judge in Texas directed the Biden administration on Friday to reinstate the Trump-era policy of requiring asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for their U.S. court hearings, saying the program was illegally terminated.

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, who was appointed to the bench by former President Trump, ordered federal officials to revive the so-called Remain in Mexico program until it is "lawfully rescinded" and the government has the detention capacity to hold all asylum-seekers and migrants subject to mandatory detention.

You'll be sorry world if the GOP regains control of Congress

McCarthy rips Biden's Afghanistan strategy, calls for investigations

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is calling for investigations into President Biden's handling of the crisis in Afghanistan, where the democratic government was toppled over the weekend by Taliban forces following a pullout of U.S. troops from the war-torn nation.

McCarthy told Punchbowl News late Sunday that Biden's decision this year to remove thousands of U.S. troops from Afghanistan was a “mistake that will haunt us for decades," and pointed to the president's choice to highlight Sept. 11 of this year as a target date to have troops out of the region.

When the fascist Trumpublicans take over, there will be nothing but wall-to-wall impeachment hearings against Biden and Harris, in numbers that will make Benghazi and Hillary's e-mails seem like underkill.

My psychic powers tell me the investigation will find Trump began the process of withdrawal and transfer of power to the Taliban last year. Biden was merely finishing what he started and Trump even praised him for doing this (a rare moment) earlier this year. If they need to have an "investigation" to remind themselves of it, well, fine.

Biden was also locked out of security briefings until he took office. We have no idea what Intel Trump hid or burned on this.
