    Default WHOA! House Riot Panel Will ‘Immediately’ Pursue Charges on Bannon if He no-shows

    Steve Bannon has a choice to make today: Either he appears for a deposition as ordered by House committee investigating the Capitol riot, or the panel will immediately pursue criminal contempt charges against him. CNN reports the committee is getting ready to seek a referral for criminal contempt as soon as the ex-Trump adviser’s subpoena deadline expires later today. Bannon’s lawyer made clear in a letter Wednesday that his client has absolutely no intention of giving testimony or handing documents to the committee until a ruling is made over whether former President Donald Trump can assert executive privilege to prevent witnesses from speaking to the panel. CNN’s sources said the committee would take the initial steps to send a referral to the Department of Justice within hours of Thursday’s deadline. Three other Trump administration officials face subpoena deadlines this week.

    Question for those who know the law, if he’s arrested, does this jeopardize his pardon?

    Maybe. Taking the 5th over and over in not caving. They can say nothing. However, Trump wants defiance.

    Looks like Pelosi and Cheney wont be sending the US Marshalls to kick in Bannon’s door after all, the political theater just lost the battle to the MAGA General Stephen K Bannon.



    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.

    No. A pardon is forever. You can't go back and re-imprison him for something he was pardoned for simply because he gets arrested for contempt of Congress while courts make rulings on executive privilege. Though it is very unlikely he'll be arrested for that while such decisions are litigated.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    Running Out the Clock
    It has now been over nine months since the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and none of the key perpetrators – Trump, Bannon, Flynn, Stone, etc – have been held accountable. And now they are dodging and defying subpoenas! What the Democrats are showing is that you cannot fight hate speech with weasel words, and you cannot fight accelerationism with inertia. This whole gang is running out the clock – the GOP and the transnational crime syndicate that backs them.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm betting the Dems do nothing meaningful about it.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    Thanks, there was chatter on Twitter and I thought they were binding.

    • Presidential communications: The Supreme Court’s 1974 decision in United States v. Nixon discussed the need to keep communications between the president and senior advisers private. The court said that presidents may not speak with candor when discussing important matters if they thought their statements would eventually be made public.

      I would be surprised if Bannon qualified as a Senior Advisor. I guess it’s time for the courts to settle this issue.
