ooks like Nan Johnston should just set an annual appointment time with an investigator from the Missouri Ethics Commission.
Landmark Live will be a magical time when we come back to life for a show Thursday, Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. So magical Chris Kamler might pull a quarter of his ear (I said his ear, not his rear).

Call me crazy, but I’m starting to think not everything Trump says is true, you guys.
I don’t know if everyone has heard, but the election is over. Trump lost.
Feeling pretty good about my November election endorsements of the concepts of sanity and science.
Maybe it wasn’t the news that was fake the past four years.
At first glance it appears some folks who skipped high school civics class held a reunion at the Capitol.
Extremists will call this fake news, but days after Trump rioters stormed the Capitol, federal investigators have said they’re devoting an enormous amount of resources into details of a potential “seditious conspiracy” and have said that some of the as of yet undisclosed evidence about what happened inside the Capitol will be “shocking.”
Wondering if any local folks have been busy scrubbing their social media pages.
Trump spent a good deal of time in his 2020 campaign insisting the only way he could lose is if the election is rigged against him. He cried foul before any votes were cast. Remember, he did the same thing in 2016. He won that election.
Since the November 2020 election, Trump has maintained he was robbed, without any credible evidence to support his claims to that effect. Trump’s team then proceeded to challenge the election in the courts, which is certainly his right to do so and a right supported by those of us who believe in the Constitution.
The problem for Trump then became that his team suffered defeat after defeat in court. For those who cry “fake news” anytime the facts don’t align with Trump’s words, now would be a good time to do your own research on the following:
Out of 62 lawsuits filed challenging the presidential election, 61 have failed. Some cases were dismissed for lack of standing and others based on the merits of the voter fraud allegations. The decisions have come from both Democratic-appointed and Republican-appointed judges – including federal judges appointed by Trump.
But that hasn’t stopped Trump from perpetuating The Big Lie strategy. He has continued with The Big Lie despite public assurances from Trump’s own Department of Justice, his own attorney general, and his own Department of Homeland Security that no serious election fraud occurred.
So at this point if you’re still believing Trump was robbed of the election, it means you believe the courts, the Justice Department, Homeland Security and countless other agencies in countless states are all in on the conspiracy.
Seems very unlikely. But hey, you be you.
Apparently Blue Lives Matter unless the blue is standing between a rioting crowd of Trump supporters and the Capitol.
“I’m the law and order president.”
That may have been fake news, you guys. I think what Trump meant was “I’m the law and order president until the law is not on my side.”
You know things have gone south when Nancy Pelosi sounds like the most reasonable person in the room.
RIP to the presidential aspirations of Josh Hawley. Date of death Jan. 6, 2021.
Don’t misunderstand my point. Hawley can–likely will–be re-elected senator in Missouri. But it seems highly unlikely he wins a presidential election after he insisted on fanning the flames of a dumpster fire just a few hours after extremists carried out an assault on our nation’s Capitol and an assault on democracy. And if you think it was Hawley’s career ambition to stop at U.S. Senator and not seek higher office, you haven’t been paying attention. His career goal was the presidency. Gone. Talk about not reading the room.
