One of the prayerful Proud Boys arrested for participation in Capitol riot

 

Dominic Pezzola


New York Times, 1/15/2021
According to a cooperating witness quoted in court papers, Mr. Pezzola had taken the shield from a Capitol Police officer. He and the mob he led intended to kill “anyone they got their hands on,” the witness said, including Ms. Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence. Mr. Pezzola, a boxer known as Spaz, was intent on returning to Washington with his group next week to wreak more havoc at President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s inauguration, according to the witness.

Spaz's prayer 

Thank you, dear Lord, for the wonderful nation us Proud Boys have been blessed to live in.  We ask you to restore our racist and nativist value systems to this country and for the courage and strength to represent you and our white culture well.  We ask you for your divine protection as we enter the Capitol to kick some ass and kill Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi.

Amen!

    Phyllis Tucker Cable (1926-2020) Warren High School class of 1944

     

     

    1944 Dragon yearbook


    Phyllis's high-school activities:

    Junior Shorthand Club (3); Stenographers' Club (4).

     

    1967 Warren City Directory  

    • Phyllis and Paul are listed in the county section as living in Russell
    • Tucker Gilber E (Helen P) retired h4 Conewango Place
    1983 Warren City Directory  
    • ditto for the Cables

    The popularity of Phyllis as a baby name is graphed here.  Let's take a look at daughter Jayne.




    Jayne, a much less popular variant of Jane (55 years in the top 10, peaked at #35 in 1946, now resurging in popularity), debuted in 1912.  After an initial peak in 1920, she regained her momentum in the 1930s and eventually spent 7 years (1954-59, 1961) in the top 300, peaking at #212 in 1956.

    Making the GOP brand toxic for a generation




    Independent, 1/12/2021
    Ms Boebert has been called the "QAnon Congresswoman" for saying she hopes the baseless conspiracy theory - alleging a demonic global paedophile ring that includes the majority of US Democratic politicians and features secret executions, clones and a mass, apocalyptic reckoning called "The Storm" - is "real."

    Boebert defeated 5-term incumbent Scott Tipton in the 2002 GOP primary for Colorado's 3rd congressional district.  Since 1992, the sprawling district has been held by a Republican for all but 4 years.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia)

    AlterNet, 1/15/2021


    In a conservative, solidly Republican district, Miller defeated Kevin Van Ausdal, her Democratic opponent, by nearly 50 percentage points.  Van Ausdal withdrew as a result of the extreme abuse heaped upon him Greene's frothing supporters.


    Most of Georgia's counties are currently considered extresme hot spot, with the northwestern counties in Greene's district among the state's hottest.

    Mary Miller (R-Illinois)

    In a conservative, solidly Republican district, Miller defeated her Democratic opponent by nearly 47 percentage points.   A romp, in other words.


    Boston Globe, 1/14/2021 
    An angry Moulton snapped pictures of the congressional quislings, precipitating a clash with Republican Mary Miller, the first-term representative from Illinois who had quoted Hitler approvingly at a “Save the Republic” rally the day before. 
    “She came up and started screaming at me, inches from my face, spittle coming out of her mouth,” Moulton recalled. She said that she didn’t need to wear a mask, that COVID only kills 1 percent anyway, and that she wasn’t contagious, according to Moulton (Miller’s spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment).

    Miller's House district includes numerous counties that are coronavirus hot spots.

    GET ME REWRITE: Disgraced clown Scott Jensen teams up with the Tighty Whities at WILL, to the annoyance of WI Supreme Court Chief Justice Roggensack

     

    Even a GOP lapdog can lose her patience.

    Irritated enough to piss on the guy's hat.


    In an hourslong hearing Thursday, the justices expressed skepticism at changing their rules. 

    ”I don’t know how in the world you think the court could ever draw the map," Chief Justice Patience Roggensack said. "This rule makes the court proactive. That’s just not how we operate.”  

    [snip]

    Requesting the rule change is former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen, a Republican who is being assisted by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty. 


    Yup, this reckoning with whiteness group.

      Dear Traitor Scott Fitzgerald, The evidence is as plain as the red nose on your face. Best, Retiring Guy

       


      “I don’t think we know yet,” Fitzgerald said when asked if the president is responsible for the events of Jan. 6. “There has to be more to this entire episode and it needs to be investigated top to bottom to see who was involved and exactly what motivated them to get to where we were, which was a very, very frightening day.”

      Meet Phill Kline, Trump Loyalists Clown Show cast member behind the 15 Wisconsin GOP complicit traitors' letter

       


      "Documentation" attached to traitors' letter to Pence (red arrow added)

      Kansas Reflector, 12/1/2020
      Many Kansans remember Kline as a polarizing political figure whether serving as a Republican state representative, state attorney general or Johnson County district attorney. 
      Kline’s desire to investigate and prosecute Kansas abortion providers was so fervent that he was found by a state disciplinary panel to have engaged in a pattern of unethical conduct, including presenting false testimony and illegally acquiring medical records of women planning abortions. 
      In the end, the Kansas Supreme Court determined there was “clear and convincing evidence” to require indefinite suspension of Kline’s law license in 2013.

      Voice of America remains the Voice of Trump

       

      Michael Pack is all ears.

      The latest propaganda from VOA can be found here.  And here.


      1/1/2021 update, "GET ME REWRITE:  Voice of America chairman hopes to continue operations as Voice of Trump", starts here.


      Business as usual for the GOP.  Michae Pack, the CEO of the U.S. Agency for Global Media, also serves as chairman of the boards of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and Radio Free Asia. Pack and the members of the boards have now added binding contractual agreements intended to ensure that they cannot be removed for the next two years. They could be removed only "for cause" subsequently. 
      Pack stocked those boards with conservative activists and Trump administration officials, despite a tradition of bipartisanship. In other words, although President-elect Joe Biden has already signaled he intends to replace Pack as CEO of the parent agency soon after taking office in January, Pack would maintain a significant degree of control over the networks. Pack and USAGM declined requests for comment.
