TFG is Having a Bad Month. Why That’s Great for the Country.

We’re in Year Two of Joe Biden’s presidency, but TFG (The Former Guy) can’t let that election go.

In a recent statement, TFG actually said the quiet, traitorous part aloud:

While repeating his lies about widespread voter fraud, he said that … ‘Mike Pence did have the right to change the outcome … Unfortunately, he didn’t exercise that power. He could have overturned the election!”

You don’t need to be Perry Mason to see this as a confession.

The insurrection never ended

As we mark the one-year anniversary of the assault on our nation’s Capitol, it’s important to note how much has changed – for the worse.

While law enforcement filed charges against over 700 members of the mob, the people who instigated, funded, and organized the insurrection to overturn the 2020 presidential election have not been held accountable.

The Department of Justice has been astonishingly mute. If the FBI is investigating, officials are saying nothing.

Trump is gone, but his damage will linger for decades

The New Yorker celebrates the last of Trump.
The New Yorker celebrates the last of Trump.

There’s a lot to celebrate this week.

For starters, the country is still here. The United States is still a democratic republic.

There seemed to be some doubt that might continue when an angry mob invaded the Capitol on Jan. 6, only the second time it has been breached in 200 years.

Then, it was the British; this time, our fellow Americans.

These white supremacists, incited by the president, tried to overturn a lawful election.

They were halted. We got lucky.

I Wrote about Trump. Something Odd Happened.

I’ve written a few times on my personal site, MarkPerigard.com, about Orange Babyhands.

As you might guess, it hasn’t been particularly flattering.

Not long after the first post, something unusual happened.

All my posts across my site were bombed with spam … hundreds of unwelcome junk, most of it, judging from the use of the Russian email service Mail.Ru, from Russia.

Fish Rag Threatens the Wrong Billionaire

It’s just another tawdry tale – with a helluva second act.

The National Enquirer, the “newspaper” that did everything in its power to ensure President Man-Baby’s election short of buying votes, ran a hit job on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

In a whopping 11-page cover story, it exposed his extra-marital affair.

Bezos isn’t the typical cover boy for the National Enquirer.He’s not a Hollywood superstar. He’s not a national Democratic politician like Hillary Clinton to be mocked. Most Enquirer readers, even if they use Amazon to order their Doritos and flip-flops, probably don’t know who he is.

He is, however, also the owner of the Washington Post, a newspaper known for fact-checking Man-Baby’s daily lies. Man-Baby hates the Washington Post with a fury that makes him ball up his wee orange fists and curse the sky at least twice a day.
