A man's flesh is his own; the water belongs to the tribe - Dune, Frank Herbert
One of the things rightwingers have consistently done to aid their efforts is focus all their energy on one Democratic "scandal" and relentlessly catapult the propaganda. Of course, the truth of the scandal is immaterial to conservatives what matters is the ceaseless repetition.
"And let me give you one example. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee. A select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping..." - Kevin McCarthy to Sean Hannity October 2015Republicans are committing so many misdeeds, crimes, offenses, scandals, and treason that it's hard to keep track, document, and continue to focus on them. This is one of the reasons Marjorie Taylor Greene and other Republicans want to do away with the FBI. Those damn Federal Officers are investigating and arresting Conservatives! And to any Leftists, who've long called for the dissolution of the FBI, understand Major Traitor Greene isn't your ally in this because see doesn't want to eliminate the FBI she wants them replaced with a Trumpstapho or Trumpstazi, a cult of personality police force rigidly adhering to the Republican agenda of oppression and intolerance and one which will work to undermine Democrats the way the New York FBI did with Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Back in April I did a post on Brett Favre stealing from millions from Mississippi taxpayers. Well, since then more detail have emerged about the scope, intent, and direct actions Favre took to make sure he was able to illegally obtain Other Peoples Money. Recent legal fillings have included additional texts sent by Favre as he was involved in a Republican scheme to "misuse" $94,000,000 of federal grant money earmarked for TANF and other projects to help the people of Mississippi.
One Hundred Million Dollars. Stolen. A Hundred Million!
But, of course Republicans don't care about this. Governor Phil Bryant was, most likely, involved in all of this but left office in 2020 to his flabby underling, Tate Reeves who was Lieutenant Governor during this theft of A HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS. Reeves is still in office as Governor now as he seeks to make all abortion illegal, seeks to privatize the water supply for the poor people isn't facing daily calls to resign in disgrace. Isn't facing Federal prosecution (as far as I know). Tate Reeves is one of those bulbous, well-fed, smooth bodied rightwing Republicans who calls the meager assistance Americans receive from their government "cruel socialism" all the while ensuring those federal funds flow into the coffers of the rich and religious right wack-a-loons.
And look in Jackson, Mississippi Americans don't have clean water. For drinking. For bathing. For laundry and dishes. For schools. For months. Because Republicans don't invest in facilities for the people they rule over. Because Republicans steal public funds and funnel it to their friends and ideological allies. Because Republicans whole raison d'être is to get into office to undermine and hamstring government and then claim government doesn't work. This is what they do with Education, Infrastructure, and any other public utilities.
The question for Americans and those living in Mississippi is; Are Republicans more dangerous to their health and well-being than ISIS? The answer clearly is yes.
Republicans don't give a shit about people. They don't give a shit. Veterans, Law Enforcement, Women, and anyone who doesn't ceaselessly toe-the-line of Intolerance and Oppression and Adulation of the Rich. Republicans idolize ISIS and want to create and Rightwing Fundamentalist Nation with 90% of people shackled in Wage Slavery, women and minorities reduced to second class citizens, and a Rightwing Paramilitary which rigidly enforces the White Evangelical Patriarchy with unimpeded violence.
