    1. @Ian M … if we had term limits, there would be less fear of ‘doing what’s right’, unless someone was aspiring for another position.

    2. _”If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed … and we will deserve it.”_ ~Lindsey Graham May 16, 2016

    1. @themetricsystem probably both. She has Stockholm syndrome and fears the loss of intergenerational wealth. She has no soul.

    2. @Lexi Cat I would love to see him stammering around. He actually tried to use the official potus account and got 3 tweets out before they shut it down.

    3. @JJ Rousseaux They’ve done more than that. The @POTUS account has no content younger than the 23rd of December. Seems like it’s essentially frozen until Biden is sworn in and assumes control of the account.

    4. @Jesus Zamora yeah and now they have stated use of lethal force against these terrorists. I’m glad. We had bomb threats near the capitol yesterday and more terrorists arrested today. We will be under emergency order until after Jan 20. -LETHAL FORCE APPROVED-incoming National Guard troops will be armed with lethal force, Pennsylvania general says

      More than 5,000 troops from six states will join the 1,100 D.C. National Guard members currently working in Washington https://www.wusa9.com/mobile/article/news/local/dc/armed-national-guard-troops-arriving-from-six-states-inauguration/65-a71e778b-177a-4c1f-b972-440c575f3e87

    1. @Baby Teano to be shut down too. This isn’t about social justice, it’s about liability for the damage it could cause.

  1. Retribution for dear leader? Sounds like Trump supporters need to move to either N. Korea or Russia then they’ll get what they’ve been asking for.

    1. I can imagine Trump becoming the governor of some dirtbag state and basically turning it into a MAGA hellhole.

  2. anyone who’s been tainted by trump is forever tainted….you better go back calling yourselves ‘whigs’ again….

    1. @juancarlos belboder study history. Something not taught in school anymore. Civics would be helpful too.

    2. @juancarlos belboder the Republican Party was born from the anti-slavery remnants of the Whig Party. The Whigs ceased to exist as a party very soon thereafter.

    3. @MysticFiddler1 That is the number 1 issue. Four years of brainwashing and gaslighting, and only accomplished psychiatrists can even attempt to deprogram these idiots.

    4. That would be “tories” not “whigs”. Republicans support the king, therefore they are Tories. tRump has styled himself as “the king”. That’s why he doesn’t bother to lead. He thinks he doesn’t need to.

    1. @Eric Paul Yes it is. In one corner, we have “legal”. In the other corner, we have “insane.”. I was born and raised in Michigan. It’s insane to be able to have guns in the Capitol building. Think it’s time to CHANGE the law.

  3. It is already broken.
    WTF. Everyone in Congress & Senate took an oath to uphold the Constitution.
    If you are unable to fulfill that duty, RESIGN NOW.
    The only option is impeachment & conviction of 45.
    Otherwise, you are guilty of sedition and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

  4. Now we gather, due to a selfish man’s injured pride and the outrage of supporters who he had deliberately misinformed for the past two months and stirred to action this very morning. What happened here today was an insurrection incited by the President of the United States.- Mitt Romney. He must be impeached. No more pardons or future public office.

    1. I don’t know if sarcasm is a skill, but you’ve certainly mastered it.

    2. “Blessed is the one who fears the LORD always, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into calamity. Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people. A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor, but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days. If one is burdened with the blood of another, he will be a fugitive until death; let no one help him. Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered, but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall. Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty. A faithful man will abound with blessings, but whoever hastens to be rich will not go unpunished.” – Proverbs 28:14-20

    1. GOP isn’t a political party, it’s a cult. With Trump they found the perfect figurehead, a pathological liar with sociopathic tendencies.

    2. @v35tan27 Trump is definitely a psychopath narcissist. He won’t be attending President Biden inauguration because he will be meeting with his clan to announce his next coup date.

    1. Their biggest problem that trapped them is their media ecosystem. It’s one thing have a bias and a reasonable amount of propaganda, but conservative media outlets are all full of outright liars, predatory grifters, and untethered conspiracy nuts. Their constituents have no sense of reality because the media those consume isn’t reality, and it’s been a growing problem for 20 some years. If we want to fix this problem we have to find some way to balance the first amendment with the need to protect people from misinformation.

    2. @PS2 Silver Not an excuse, they picked him because they wanted his base votes. Cruz and Hawley are still courting these people so they have a shot! Take them all down, traitors everyone, no better than another.

    3. I hope all of us same Americans remember when it comes time to vote those traitors out of office. The 120 house representatives, Cruz, Hawley Graham and the rest of those that gave trump so much power, and those that tried to object and over turn the will of the people!!!

    4. “But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.”-James 3:14

  5. The Republican Party was falling apart BEFORE Trump got there, that’s WHY HE GOT IN. He was just the 75 year old straw, on the Elephants back….

    1. @philip hicks Just like YOU want to avoid reality??? IT WAS AN ATTEPTED COUPE NOT A PROTEST…. Happy Baby?

    1. @Trevor Lee Don’t forget Rick Scott, who actually voted to sustain the Pennsylvania objection. No seditionists must be allowed to serve in Congress. Not now, not ever.

  6. Trump and Republicans should be arrested for Treason. Overthrowing legally elected US government by Illegal Coup is Treasonous.

    1. @Reigning Cats DON’T ADD YOUR NAME TO THE CASUALTIES OF BIDEN’S CRIME! SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND STAY SAFE!

    2. @Autonomous Trumper Justice happens in the court system, amigo, not through violence. We have laws and procedures for very good reasons. Your aims would only manage to produce Trump as the dictator of a brand-new one of those so-called “shithole” countries he’s know to complain about, the nation formerly known as the land of the free. Most of would rather not live in that place, thanks.

    1. He loves to punish others for his mistakes. As a consequence so do his supporters now. Its irritating.

    2. @John Verhoeven just a little thing with national security and his huge personal debt all compounded by his observable lack of loyalty.

    1. Nevermind that, When the Dems/media turned a blind eye to the rioting and destruction of minority businesses and federal property by the radical left (BLMANTIFA), it just emboldened the radical right…Too bad it got to this

    2. @Education is key You haven’t been paying attention. The riots were investigated by the FBI for what had caused them. White supremacists groups were causing the riots all along, organized. Mob mentality takes over after certain amount of chaos.

    1. “But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.”
      -James 3:14

    2. “Q” 17 letter of the alphabet. . 1/17/21 we should be preparing for. ( A comment I read elsewhere.)

  7. *”What is happening to my country?”*
    *”Same that happened to Germany. There is no American exceptionalism.”*
