There’s never a dull moment in Trumpiana.
Because Donald Trump, having nothing better to do, incited The Insurrection on January 6, House Democrats and a couple of Goppers, including embattled Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), are in the process of telling us (eventually) the True Background of the Insurrection at the Symbol of our democracy.
PBS viewers were treated today to Yamiche Alcindor’s weekly Washington Week show, because in addition to 38-year old White House correspondent 姜伟嘉 (Weijia Jiang), Alcindor hosted Robert Costa and Bob Woodward, co-authors of the best seller Peril, along with a Miami Herald reporter who commented on Haitian migrants in Del Rio, Lone Star State, and how they were betrayed by the Biden Administration.
Woodward and Costa clearly got the goods on four Trumpies subpoenaed by Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)’s January 6 investigating committee.
The four men Thompson subpoenaed include today's version of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (see Revelation 9:13-20): super raucous Breitbartian Steve Bannon; former White House Chief of Staff and former North Carolina GOP Congressman Mark Meadows; former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Dan Scavino; and Kash Patel, a former aide to California’s least intelligent Congressman, Devin Nunes. Patel was a Pentagon staffer on January 6 and before that (see https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/january-6-subpoenas-meadows-bannon/2021/09/23/366027d2-1cc4-11ec-a99a-5fea2b2da34b_story.html) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Horsemen_of_the_Apocalypse.
Our Chief Religion Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Jim Bob Hobarto, the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award of the Unitarian Universalist Association (and your solitary reporter’s minister for a long time in Denver) gave a sermon moments ago at the First Unitarian Church of Chicago, in which he reflected on the bizarre vision of the author of the Book of Revelation, John of Patmos.
“Everything in the Book of Revelation prefigured Donald Trump,” Hobarto said in his sermon.
Trump vehemently denounced the subpoenas and vowed to fight them as far as SCOTUS, meaning we aren’t likely to see the Thompson Committee’s report until early 2024.
In other news, Iowa’s senior senator, Chuck Grassley, plans to represent his State until he reaches 120 (see https://www.politico.com/news/2021/09/24/chuck-grassley-2022-elections-iowa-514090). Grassley is 88.
