Republican Party Desperate to View Hunter Biden's Junk. EmptyWheel
Coordinated propaganda campaign by Steve Bannon.
Of course, Moderatus will need to share his box of Kleenex and his tube of KY with the committee as they go through the contents of the laptop.
How will they know it's really Hunter's "junk?" Didn't Rudy Giuliani have access to the laptop for a while?
Rope-a-Dope: Ignore Republican Threats to the Debt Ceiling. Vox.com
Republicans are salivating at the chance to eat the debt ceiling hot dog. They figure that by threatening to shut down the Government they can force defunding of the IRS, Social Security, and other programs.
The cleanest solution would be to use the Legally Blonde 2 strategy of a discharge petition, however…
I say: Let Them Try.
Vox.com provides a number of ways Biden could avoid the crises, but Biden should run a rope-a-dope strategy by allowing them threaten destruction up to the deadline and then pull the rug out from under them.
For example: Imagine a hurricane hitting Florida or Texas just as the government is forced to shut down. Or making them touch the third rail of politics, Social Security. Go for maximum exposure and let them hang by their tighty-whities.
Vox.com suggests, "(1) minting a 1 Trillion Dollar platinum coin", which is expressly provided for by law, or a 20 Billion Dollar platinum coin every day.
There are some other legal solutions that would leave Republican wailing and gnashing their teeth, including "(2) Invoking the 14th Amendment" or this one:
For your daily portuguese edification…
Lula's party "PT" Partido dos Trabalhadores, also stands for Puta Tesão, which roughly translates a "fuckin' horny".
And, "Lula" is the portuguese word for shrimp or calamari.

Do you really think he wants to subject his husband and children to what would come his way from a national campaign?
Do you think there's a single governor who wouldn't run for President if they thought they had a chance?
"Polis is looking very much gubernatorial……"
Not said is the fact that the Republicans put up a hapless nominee, leading to Polis' well-deserved landslide win.
National security is at risk with Joe BiteMe hiding secret documents. Do the PolCats care?
They're from his time as vice-president, I've read. Making them much less important than what Trump tried to conceal at Mar A Lago.
It’s a case of lawyers cooperating and informing the government they discovered a handful of classified documents versus a serial liar obstructing the process, hiding hundreds of classified documents, lying about having them, then getting caught red-handed, and then claiming they are his because he magically waved a wand and declassified them.
Quite a difference, but you’ll never hear that from the Trump Humpers.
But her emails!!!
Oh, look. Our local Trump fellator comes back to play whataboutism. Who saw that coming? /s
Well, damn. Jeff Beck’s death was reported earlier this week then dismissed as a hoax. Turns out he really is gone. RIP, and thanks for decades of utterly spectacular music.
Spectacular, indeed. Reminds me somewhat of the "Twang Bar King" Adrian Belew…
Jeff Beck was a true original. I saw him back in 2006, and it was otherworldly. You watch him. He barely spoke, but he didn't need to. He came out and played and it was incredible. What he did live with some of his studio instrumentals…
He was one of the two musicians that listening to them really got me into jazz.
