These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!

Since Democrats now have control of the Senate, and have maintained the grip on the house, can Trump actually be impeached and removed now?

It’s not like you to show restraint in the face of rioters damaging property and injuring law enforcement officers. What happened to you?


It’s an incredible double standard

A brick gets thrown through a window during a BLM protest turned riot....”lock them all up, criminals masquerading as protesters, whole thing is dirty top to bottom “ etc etc etc


The capital literally gets stormed while in session to certify the democratic process of transferring power.....”well, let’s see what they were upset over. Can’t lump them all together or judge without all the facts!”

This is a terrorist insurrection. Perhaps a bold statement, but this will do far more damage than 9/11 or Bin Laden himself could have ever hoped.

Yeah, as much as I detest Trump, it would just do more harm. The thing to do is in the next few elections, when one of the Reps or Sens who wanted to contest the vote is running, a special effort should be put forth to defeat them. I'm sure they'll say "I didn't know it would happen", but they did...

Today is simply what failed leadership looks like and why Teddy Roosevelt implored patriots to put country above POTUS/the man. Trump is the most subversive POTUS of our lifetimes.

Well, there will be many in custody. I guess there's ample opportunity to tell the tale of how the left wing agitators went to the Capitol to stop the election wherein a right wing president was to be denied a second term. Makes so much sense. I can't wait for the salacious details.

It's high time the president is declared incapacitated, so the VP can take over until the inauguration of the President-elect.
Would probably suit Trump just fine, as he wouldn't have to actually do the hand over to J. Biden then.

It's clea that in 2 weeks from now 45 should end up either in a psychiatric hospital or in jail, because this is NOT even remotely the normal behaviour of a President!

Why do we tend to give unfit names to things? Example: "German Democratic Republic" to one of the world's worst dictatorships.

And now the land area which separates Canada from Mexico. "United States of America"? "States of America", sure yes. But "United" ???

What about a name change? Could it be "North Mexico"? Or would that be too much of an insult on Mexico?

Well, looks like its time to retire the Star Spangled Banner in favour of this anthem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07GpE3HZJ5k

Remember when America had a middle class and an upper class?
That was way before the exodus.
That was the America that we thought was number one,
thought would overcome, thought would never die.
That was just our pride and faith: two shitty deadly sins;
I know faith isn't one of 'em but it should have been,
'Cause when things were crumbling, we had no camaraderie,
just a faith someone would save us from despondence.

We called it America, whoa.
We called it America, whoa.

"Number one America" was a slogan used
to keep morale up when we knew we were already cooked,
Then the richer western states
succeeded in secession and the eastern ones followed right behind.
Mexi-Can-America was the perfect name
that epitomized the order of significance, authority and affluence.
We had turned it all around, went from number one, straight to number two (shit).

We called it America, whoa.
We called it America, whoa.

National bankruptcy, circumcised society.
USA, dined and ditched;
Fox reports "poor is the new rich".

We called it America, whoa.
We called it America, whoa.
We called it America, whoa.
We called it America, whoa.
We called it America.

That’s Richard “Bigo” Barnett, 60, from Gravette, Ak., showing off the personalized envelope he took from Speaker Pelosi’s office. He insisted he didn’t steal it — “I left a quarter on her desk.”

https://twitter.com/AllMattNYT/status/1 ... 6421578754

@AllMattNYT
Barnett, whose shirt was ripped opened and who kept shouting about being “maced,” was loudly entertaining fellow protesters with tales of his exploits.

After getting into Pelosi’s office, he said, “I wrote her a nasty note, put my feet up on her desk and scratched my balls.”


@AllMattNYT
·
He claimed that he was politely knocking on the door of Pelosi’s office when he was pushed in by other protesters. It was a story he knew no one would buy - “I’ll probably be telling them this is what happened all the way to the D.C. jail,” he said.


What consequences is he going to face? Hillary was right about her deplorables comment.

Since it's cold in DC (around 40F/5C), this would be an excellent time to use the water hose to disperse the crowd. And if they catch hypothermia, so what? If they really are patriots, they can die for their country.

And for anyone lamenting how America is better than this, pay the hell attention, this is exactly who Americans are. This has been coming for a long time and our ugliness is being exposed to the world.

Pelosi confirms the people's work will continue tonight, possibly within the hour per media reports.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers will resume counting the Electoral College vote later Wednesday after armed protesters stormed the Capitol building, disrupting the proceedings and forcing lawmakers to flee to secure locations.

"To that end, in consultation with Leader Hoyer and Whip Clyburn and after calls to the Pentagon, the Justice Department and the Vice President, we have decided we should proceed tonight at the Capitol once it is cleared for use," Pelosi wrote in a letter to House members.

The lawmakers will return for a joint session, so members of both the House and Senate will join. It's unclear what time lawmakers will reconvene.

"We always knew this responsibility would take us into the night," Pelosi continued. "The night may still be long but we are hopeful for a shorter agenda, but our purpose will be accomplished."

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congre ... s-n1252864

Note the mention of Mike Pence. He is emerging as a key figure in the final weeks of the Trump saga.

In year one, a 70+ year old man has no business clowning around on childish meant-for-entertainment platforms like Twitter, Tik Tok etc....esp. the leader of the world's most powerful nation.

These 'people' who would so love a proven lifelong failed, immoral, deceptive law breaking, uneducable, tax cheat as a savior and place him above their country forsake their citizenship.

I personally have cut personal long time friendships with three people who followed this fool past the 2020 election. Enough is enough and these former associates are valuable contacts but certainly not worth retaining with such mental state whereas they haven't slightest clue how they come off to 'anyone observing'. Two of them have attempted a New Years greeting text - which has and will continue to go without reply and blocked.

Nationally, America now sees white privilege in all it's glory....an assemblage of 40 BLM protesters or more would have been met immediately with a enormous brigade of SWAT units and then some.

Police treated Black Lives Matter protesters and the violent pro-Trump mob very differently

But this not them and what see unfolding here is an assemblage the Bundy clan is pissed they were not a part of it.

A BLM crowd this size? Apache attack helos and troops would have been at the ready within seconds.

Cruz and rest must pay for their aiding and abetting in this act of insurrection.

I've pitched a bitch about this ignorant feckless president since his announced intent to run as have many others here, now the 'trump lives rent free in your head' crowd goes ghost now that their true colors are on display for all to see. And to think, they were greatly offended by Colin Kaepernick took a knee at NFL games - and the team owners..I say to them 'Look at who you were listening to...' president Jim Jones'... hopefully he's packing a couple cask of 'Kool Aid', to cool them off.

The good thing about Trump is that he is gone in a couple of weeks.

I doubt there are any Trump 'sleeper cells', they're not organized enough for that.

I would also be shocked if there is any sort of public inauguration ceremony. The Secret Service is probably having kittens right now at the thought.

Twitter aren't even flagging his tweets now, just deleting them. He's lost it. Lots of talk on CNN of the 25th Amendment being invoked, but I can't see that flying.

Congress will resume at 8pm ET. It remains to be seen if all the planned objections will still happen or if a big dose of common sense has been taken. We shall see.

In year one, a 70+ year old man has no business clowning around on childish meant-for-entertainment platforms like Twitter, Tik Tok etc....esp. the leader of the world's most powerful nation.

These 'people' who would so love a proven lifelong failed, immoral, deceptive law breaking tax cheat as a savior and place him above their country forsake their citizenship.

I personally have cut personal long time friendships with three people who followed this fool past the 2020 election. Enough is enough and these former associates are valuable contacts but certainly not worth retaining with such mental state whereas they haven't slightest clue how they come off to 'anyone observing'. Two of them have attempted a New Years greeting text - which has and will continue to go without reply and blocked.

Nationally, America now sees white privilege in all it's glory....an assemblage of 40 BLM protesters or more would have been met immediately with a enormous brigade of SWAT units and then some.

But this not them and what see unfolding here is an assemblage the Bundy clan is pissed they were not a part of it.

If you think the Apache choppers would have been called in for BLM protesters, imagine what would have happened if they looked like people of Arab or other Middle Eastern descent. They'd have been immediately shot as terrorists, But white guys with pipe bombs, meh.....and I say this as a male Caucasian US citizen.

A woman was shot (it might very well have been justified). How many people have been shot by police during countless BLM protests?

If these were left wing, minorities. There would be B2s, B52s, A10, and C-130s. But with white, right wingers they only get Bell 212s and AS350s as they were winding down the insurrection.

I'm seeing lots of urges for the 25th amendment to be invoked in order to remove Trump. I want your opinion: For the sake of preventing violence - Is this a good idea or not?

If this happens, will Trump supporters lose it and go into full-on war rage?
or will they just give up and go home?
