I have no idea what that means. If you at least linked the article, I could Google Translate it. But I don’t understand what the screenshot says.

“Hans, why did you try to overthrow the government together with these nazis?”
“You see, I was late to work one day…”
@Kolbjorn
Apparently he did that because he was about to be impeached. But why would he even try a coup without police, military or common people on his side?

Cristina Kirchner, vice-president of Argentina, was sentenced to six years of prison for a case of corruption related to public procurement of roadwork contracts that took place during her presidential tenure (granted, her political immunity protects her from incarceration for now; plus there are suspicions that, like for Lula in Brazil, the case against her was, at least in part, politically motivated — see what I said about corrupt politicians on the previous page).

What he meant is that many South-American left-leaning politicians are just as hopelessly corrupt as the rest.

Other than more reaffirmation that Moscow thought the war would last all of 2 weeks (we’re on month 10 by the by) Highlights include:
A (obvious) plan to kill the political leaders, Zelensky especially.
Plan to keep key infrastructure intact, including rail and power, so help with Russian occupation.
Installation of troops into Nuclear Power Plants, for use as a threat and blackmail against Europe with nuclear radiation.
Rounding up civilians for “registration”, and to divide them into 4 group categories. 1 of those groups would be executed.
And of course, because it always needs to be reminded, Republicans support this.

That Russia would have such lists in case of invasion is long known. People from countries bordering with Russia have to consider this when applying for any gun or radio licenses. It’s likely to land them on the elimination list.

It’s bizarre to see almost complete silence on the right about Ted Cruz’s daughter. Nearly all of the outpouring of support and well wishes have been from the left. Being a decent human isn’t political but it’s honestly surprising his allies have said nothing.
The same people that have gone on endlessly about “protecting children” haven’t even put out something so much as a well wishes. When all you do is spread hate, you don’t know how to put love, kindness, and grace into the world.

I wonder how much the RED WAVE WILL CRUSH THE DEMS!!! crowd is again feeling betrayed right now…
You know the GOP messed up bad when the goofball in the image above gets a win without even trying much on his part.

This behaviour from supporters of “family values” and “traditional values”, especially online on Twitter, are why I hate conservatism more. These terms are now like red flags to me, warning signs of people who want to become terrorists.
Hypocrites and violent people who hide behind traditions, because they only want power. Dunno if I should be more hostile towards anyone with a traditionalist mentality, by their association with these nutjobs or not.
They sound like a weird mix of QAnon and sovereign citizens, in a Kaiser theme

The first president in like 100 years to not lose a single incumbent senator from his party in his first midterm.
The fourth or president in like 80 years to actually gain in the Senate in the midterm.
Was able to literally decimate the opposing party’s House gains from an expected 40 person majority to an expected 4 person majority.
Gained 2 governorships.
Oversaw several State Senate and Houses flip blue when no red flips, in some cases granting Democrat trifecta in states where that hasn’t happened in near century.
Oversaw only 22 lost state legislature seats when the expected losses was to be in the hundreds, plural.

So I learned a bit more about those guys that plotted to overthrow the German government. Apparently they’re part of the “Reichsbürger movement,” a loose network of right to far-right groups claiming that the German government is illegitimate and that the German Empire in its pre-WW1 borders is the only “real” Germany. In practice, most of its followers are Neo-Nazis and/or trying to get out of a speeding ticket.
The funniest thing about this is they couldn’t pick a Hohenstaufen because by and large the family has gave up on ever being an aristocratic family and just faded into doing speaking tours, and the current head of Hapsburg is too busy posting about anime and the Catholic Church to ever show interest in governance besides his community service ass service to the Vatican as cultural ambassador to like, Hungary or something.
The man they picked, Heinrich XIII von Reuß is a 70 year old man from a family who only ever presided over a very small Thuringian county and has probably descended not only into early dementia brain but is addled by middle class small business tyrant brain disease because he doesn’t actually do anything productive, he just sells homes, and real estate agents are like landlords all have the same disposition to the most annoying politics.

From what I gathered, they were expecting bigger gains because the electoral map used to favor them. The 2020 redistricting blunted that advantage.

You’re right about the Senate, since it’s renewed by thirds. House seats however are all up for grabs every two years (and indeed, the Republican majority in the House does reflect the popular vote, with some discrepancies due to differential turnout).
