It’s Still Civil War
Why the Republicans’ Big Lie works so well: A sociopathic party, and a damaged country
As detailed by the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, exhibiting three or more of the following traits is sufficient for the diagnosis of sociopathy:
Callous unconcern for the feelings of others
Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms and obligations
Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them
Very low tolerance to frustration, a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence
Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment
Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalization for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders adds these two qualifiers:
Deception, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure
Impulsiveness or failure to plan ahead
This article makes it perfectly clear the Trump’s party of fascists WILL take the lead again. One of the reason Liz Cheney remains the attack victim is because the Republican Party insists on total loyalty and they simply cannot tolerate having anyone who doesn’t subscribe to the Big Lie.
The Republicans are lining up all their forces to oppose any honest investigation into the Capitol attack. If they succeed, Trump & Company (all the leadership involved) will go unpunished when it is already plainly obvious they are guilty as sin.
The sham “recount” should be called off, according to the Arizona Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, but the entire purpose of the recount of the recount of the recount (I’m not kidding) is to continue to sow the Big Lie theme. Perpetuate the Lie anyway you can, keep this in the news cycle, keep this in people’s minds. 2022 isn’t that far off and they are raking in tens of millions of dollars from their donors.
It’s all a sham, a gigantic scam operation called Trump’s Big Lie. Trump set-up the entire country early on for this, months before the 2020 Election claiming that if he didn’t win, it would be because the Democrats “cheated”. He primed the pump and repeated the lie over and over again. Then when he lost, he was ready to strike and promote his Big Lie even further. It was a non-stop whirlwind of accusations and false claims and ridiculous fabrications ever since. 61 court cases failed to provide sufficient evidence. But the way to promote a lie is to never stop telling it, never admit defeat, never reveal that you know you lost, so that is what Trump did.
Then he and Giuliani and other promoted the Capitol attack, hoping they could stop the legal certification of the vote, but that didn’t work either, and now ALL of the Republicans are back-peddling and pretending they’re not involved when the exact opposite is true. They’re all part of the cover-up and deceit, attempting to re-frame the attack as a “tourist visit” and other such nonsense. Millions of dollars in damage was reported by the “tourist” who were deliberately seeking out law makers, calling for their hangings and executions.
This entire fiasco is a clown circus of extraordinary levels. Something you would have expected to see in a Banana Republic practicing a military overthrow or a dictatorship. But it’s very, very real and it happened in America and it’s still not over. The Republicans are trying very, very hard to create a fascist government and they’re definitely making serious headway despite Trump being out of office. And that should literally scare the hell out of everyone, Republican, Democrat or Independent, doesn’t matter which party you belong to, fascism will be a death blow for American freedom and likely, the entire country will implode if they succeed. Think The Handmaid’s Gilead and you’ll get the idea of what we’re facing.
Personally, I think civil war edges ever closer despite a change in leadership at the national level, whether they win or not.

Those of us in the rest of the world can only look on in amazement, feeling sorry for the sane and compassionate Americans whilst hoping America tears itself to pieces as quickly as possible because America used its [past] economic strength and military strength to impose its will on much of the rest of the world by force. The philosophy was: if you disagree you get annihilated. That philosophy still applies in many areas, though, fortunately, America’s power to annihilate peaked quite a while ago and is in rapid decline. Unless we consider carbon dioxide emissions.
Also of great interest to me personally is the fact that American governments have committed numerous crimes against humanity in general -ranging from invasions of other nations, or attempting to bomb them into submission, to atmospheric testing of atomic bombs to testing experimental drugs on prisoners, to refusing to join protocols banning the manufacture of land mines and cluster bombs, to refusing the join [albeit weak] efforts to reduce the rate at which we melt the planet.
Maybe it will all be over and done with quickly, and sane economic and sane social and sane environmental arrangements will be established. I am not hopeful. History teaches us that sociopaths hang on to power to the end, however bitter it is.
When your only gods are money and power, and a large sector of your society is dedicated to acquiring both at the expense of everyone else, you are doomed.
Most Americans are pretty clueless when it comes to our true history. There’s no excuse for this, other then pure laziness. They don’t want to know and prefer the store-bought version (all wrapped up nice and neat). It comes as no surprise that they’re now trying to legislate revisionist history into law, to prevent the young from being taught the true history of the nation. This ensures a steady supply of volunteer cannon fodder on behalf of Empire.
I am super-busy preparing for the economic meltdown, but for what it’s worth did come across this in my quick scan though new sites.
‘New York investigation into Trump Organization now criminal, says attorney general’
‘Today, the Texas Republican governor, Greg Abbott, signed into law one of the most extreme six-week abortion bans in the US, despite strong opposition from the medical and legal communities, who warn the legislation could topple the state’s court system and already fragile reproductive healthcare network.’
The control freaks are carrying out numerous acts of sabotage in the name of what? Religion? Stupidity? Arrogance? Doing it because they can?
People from Texas used to say, “Everything is bigger in Texas.”
I guess that includes the size of the lies and the level of stupidity.
It’s all for show with these idiots. Dark Age’s mentality. Religious stupidstitions and phony “compassion”. Satanic beliefs writ large:
Anti-abortionists, so called “pro-lifers” don’t care about life, living, young or babies. Where are they when there is need? They are only “pro-birthers” and nothing more, forcing their religious stupidstitions and gross misconceptions upon everyone else.
Their religious indoctrination is absurd, they don’t even understand what the Bible itself teaches about the unborn (it’s not pro-life). Even the Jewish people which they venerate believe that life does not begin until the “first breath”, but the religious Christian believes that life begins at just six weeks or even sooner (conception). This would make them murders using their own words and estimations when they fail to deliver through miscarriage.
They didn’t put anything into that “law” that makes men accountable or hold them responsible for conception, so this is just another sexist law attacking women. Men dictating to women, over and over again. As usual, the wealthy will simply send their impregnated victims off to another state and get the abortions performed like they’ve always done, but the poor will be even worse neglected (again). Anti-abortion laws never stopped abortion, they just drove it underground, where women had to risk everything, even their lives and thousands died from poor treatment. This is a law that promotes death to the living.
These are the same clowns that support children locked up in cages, refuse food stamps to the hungry, deny SNAP benefits to the poor, many supported “lunch shaming” in the schools, they don’t even want reproductive health care to be provided. To them, women are objects to be utilized, brutalized and then ignored if they happen to find themselves carrying the seed of their rapists and abusers. These men are fucking animals in my book, and the women that support this sexist law are indoctrinated idiots.
They’re not offering to take care of these unborn children if born and will discard them like garbage. They don’t care about the babies, or the children. They don’t want to fund health care, or help with these women in need or their children. They’re “concern” stops at the uterus, of which they proclaim themselves to be the sole arbitrator of, even though the vast majority of the lawmakers don’t have one.
Their hypocrisy over the “unborn” extends past birth, glibly sacrificing their own sons and daughters to die in foreign occupations and claim they’re being “patriotic” to the Empire. To put this bluntly, they are goddamned, cursed, Satanic idiots that embrace suffering and death for others, while pretending to hold the moral high ground. Hypocrites to the bone.
If you really want to know what anti-abortionists “care” about – just examine what they do to the living. It’s plain as day they are not pro-life, pro-health, they are actually pro-death.
America’s right-wing political monsters are real — and they are coming for you
I wish I could find fault in this article, but can’t. Brain dead, morally corrupt and ill-informed idiots are destroying this country. There’s no doubt that many of them are racists and fascists and hell-bent on having “their” way as they wave their faketriot flags high. They don’t love America, they love only themselves and intend to create an America in their image.

There you have it – TREASON right out there in the open.
