I posted this in the wrong thread.

This is what Trump posted on Truth Social. Yes, he called for ALL Democrats to resign from the senate. Since we know that he "tells it like it is" then this is what he really means.

Any thoughts on this Felix? Should the entire democratic senate resign?
Senate Democrats should all resign based on Senator Bob Menendez! They all knew what was going on, and the way he lived. Why doesn’t the FBI raid Senate Democrat’s homes like they illegally raided Mar-a-Lago, where nothing was done wrong based on the Presidential Records Act. Menendez is a “piker” compared to some of those Election Stealing THUGS. Can you imagine how much Crooked Joe Biden has stolen, and what’s in some of his many homes? The FBI and “Justice” notified him that they would be going in to look,“in a few weeks.” In other words, get rid of the cash, gold, & documents, ASAP, before we get there. They didn’t give me any warning, they just showed up. Hunter lived with Crooked Joe in Delaware. It would be a “Treasure Hunt!” Crooked’s coffers must be loaded up with cash. I wonder how much they got paid for Rigging the Election? Menendez is one of many, a small timer at that. EVERY DEMOCRAT SHOULD RESIGN FROM THE SENATE! Our Border’s are Broken, our Election’s are Rigged. MAGA!

Trump is partially right. All members of the federal government with a credible accusation of corruption should at a minimum, step down until the situation is resolved. Real corruption not some made up bullshit.

I can't remember the exact numbers, but Lauren Boebert reported a ridiculous amount of miles driven on her campaign reimbursement report. She would have been driving for 24hrs a day for weeks on end in order for it to add up.

Not sure where to post the Trump bat-shit crazy stuff, but would love to get Felix's take on Trump's take that windmills are killing whales.

It really is pay to play...there needs to be a French revolution style reckoning for the aristocrat class to remind them they're way outnumbered.

What's funny/sad is that all of this corruption people are detailing is quite likely legal as SCOTUS has made it essentially impossible to convict public officials of taking bribes.


I think he might indeed beat the rap but he's done politically. In his last primary he gave up 40 points to a nobody who had no money to spend on a campaign, he's not a popular man.

I guess Menendez today told the Senate Dem caucus that he was not going to resign, which is not a surprise. He did not say if he was running again.

Once he gets a look at his (likely apocalyptic) poll numbers I bet he likely decides to not stand for re-election.

It's not like the Dems are going to throw him out. They may want to but with the lag in getting a replacement, they don't want to lose the thin majority they have.

A removal is very unlikely.

Meaningful shit is already an almost complete impossibility due to Sinema and Manchin. Anything else wouldn't be affected as they'd still hold a 50-49 margin.

Not sure what the NJ laws are regarding replacement though. I've heard that the Gov appoints and it's good through the next regular election. So Murphy could probably do that fairly quickly.

Well, wetting the forest floor would probably cut down on the number of exploding trees we apparently have that start forest fires.

Sep 2020 quote from Trump:
"But with regard to the forest, when trees fall down, after a short period of time, about 18 months, they become very dry. They become really like a matchstick, and they get up — you know, there’s no more water pouring through, and they become very, very … they just explode. They can explode."
