Pity they didn't have the courage of their convictions a l-o-n-g time ago.

Turns out that wearing a woollen hat embroidered with the initials of your former employer isn't your best move if you plan take part in a violent insurrection on Capitol Hill.

Chester Fire Department (CFD) confirmed that ex-firefighter Robert Sanford 55 of Upper Chichester Pennsylvania, who is now in custody, was a former employee who retired in February 2020.

Peculiar on a couple points. One, someone whose career was protecting the public from harm, attacking a police officer. Two, a firefighter chooses a fire extinguisher as a weapon, a dangerous one when directed at a human head. I withdraw "peculiar," and suggest "depraved."

Looking forward to four years where the concept of "moral leadership" might be resuscitated.

At the moment, my deepest concern is the number of police and military personnel openly or covertly in the Trump camp. https://www.politico.com/news/2021/01/11/military-right-wing-extremism-457861
Specifically, the heavily armed soldiers assigned to guard the Capitol. It only takes one rogue...

Me too, or something like it. We need some fresh air.

PS. They definitely need to keep a very sharp eye on T's ghastly relatives as well. I can see D Jnr trying to carry it all on like nothing happened. For his own benefit, naturally. The country's got bugger all to do with it. They're all into self-glory, that crowd.

The trouble is that what you can get away with even legally doesn't bear thinking about.

Trump still isn’t done yet it seems. This picture of My Pillow CEO Michael Lindell was taken earlier today as he attended a meeting with Trump. Lindell who is a die-hard supporter and unofficial adviser of the president was seen clutching a sheaf of typewritten notes along with a cup of coffee and his phone as he entered the West Wing.

The cameras of watching journalists had no difficulty in capturing the text of the notes in Lindell’s hand, and they make interesting reading:

It would appear to be yet another lunatic scheme to install extremists like Sidney Powell into high level NSC positions, and to then invoke martial law on the pretext that the 6 January riot at the Capitol was somehow the handiwork of foreign actors from China and Iran - *yawn*

Many people can be a dictator or fascist operative, but it takes a real pillow expert to smother democracy in its sleep.

'Dr. Lance Dodes joins Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss Trump’s mental state as he’s banned from Twitter and why he will get worse once he leaves office and faces legal jeopardy: “The more desperate he becomes, the more delusional he is, the more he needs to prove to himself ultimately that he is still a god, so the less power he has, the more stress he’s under, the more dangerous he is.” '
