    1. @niels lund trump went to church that one time last year. Remember how he assaulted crowds of people with chemical weapons so he could go hold a bible upside down

    2. @Out of Compliance he literally didn’t win a single case, there were over 40 and you can even get audio and written transcripts where you can hear Giuliani himself admit once under oath that there was no fraud. The only reason they keep saying it out of court is to get you to send them more money. It’s what Trump has always done and always will and you keep thinking a leopard will change his spots but he’s never been about anything but himself and they money he can try and scam. It’s also like trying to claim he’s a successful business man when every business venture he’s had has failed and the only money he has are loans from non US banks that he owes more than he has to now. He’s the only person to fail to turn a profit from a casino. He doesn’t care about you or America and he’s just trying to get as much money as he can out of this. Cut your losses. Going down with a sinking ship of lies and failure is not going to help you save face and pride. You will be much more proud of yourself for being able to admit you were fleeced and that you wisened up and escaped before it took everything from you. So many people who refused to wake up and see him for what he is have lost their freedom, friends, and family. Trumps own people came forth with the evidence that it was the most secure election in history. Just because that fool sticks his fingers in his ears and says “not uh I didn’t lose” doesn’t mean you have to look like a fool too. He literally told you he was going to claim fraud if he didn’t win 5 years ago and then said it again last year. And he didn’t even get the popular vote the first time around. To believe he had any chance at a landslide the second time just means you weren’t paying attention. But that’s ok and it’s not the end of the world. It’s not too late to escape the cult

    3. @AxelSpott Cult? Believing in something with evidence is not a cult. You need to stop looking in the mirror and pointing at others.
      Stuff people like you say is either mainstream lies, has no support, gaslighting or projection. He didn’t win any (he did win one in Pennsylvania), but he didn’t lose any either, because no cases were heard.

      Each state election board or precinct is trying hard not to allow investigation. What do they have to hide? You are the cult member of the church of woke NPC. Good luck with the country if your cult gets its’ way.

  1. Love and light to you all we will get through this together….we always do…and spend time having some fun…be happy enjoy life with gratitude and laughter
    wishing you all the best…

  2. Career politicians will do anything to stay in power to control the money. Putting special interest ahead of the American people.

    1. We need to uphold law and order. The 14th amendment must be enforced:

      No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

  3. What is wrong with them? Why didn’t they start out with this instead of a doomed impeachment after he already left office? How incompetent are they?

    1. @Loren Axberg wow that’s a stretch and if it even is slightly true, what a waste of tax payer dollars. How could anyone forget the 6th. This is the worst Democratic Party in history. I miss the days of Obama.

    2. @Loren Axberg I wasn’t scared of either impeachment attempt or this lame BS. The 6th was a bunch of larping idiots, probably goaded by Antifa or BLM. The fact that it scared these whinny Bs in Congress only further shows they are repulsive human beings. After 10 months of rioting from the left that cost billions, 30+ lives, and ruined thousands of business, I have little sympathy for Congress which was in no real danger. Heck they only broke a few windows. The only one that died on the spot was an unarmed Trump supporter that was shot by police. Spare me, “you sound scared”, lol.

    3. Loren Axberg , You’re out of the loop somehow or you’re an adolescent stretching your wings and exploring the geo-political world. Sweeping things under the rug is a method common to both sides of the aisle and for the same reasons. Any idea what’s under that rug for those currently in government? To claim there isn’t anything would be disingenuous. The historic record will only highlight the willingness of this congress to bypass proper procedure, due process, and standards of evidence. They might’ve proven their case to me, but for all of that. Murderers have been turned loose in our history for procedural violations. You’d think the house impeachment managers would’ve known this and planned accordingly, but they didn’t. So, here we are.

    1. Democrats are desperate to stop TRUMP because they know He is legitimate president. Eventually when truth about the steals comes out , Trump will be back in power

  4. Theresa Manzella, Montana Senator from Hamilton, needs to be brought up on charges and disqualified from any office of public trust.

    1. @Skankhunt36 Blaming a virus that came out of china that has killed millions of people around the world on one man makes you one of the biggest morons on the planet. So by your logic, Obama/Biden killed 15,000 people with H1N1? do you want them locked up too? Of course you don’t. A low IQ left POS like you has no standards. Just a dummy with Trump derangement syndrome brought on by years of brainwashing by the left wing propaganda media machine.

    2. The communist virus killed many fragile people but the 99.87 percent survival rate isn’t the end of the world. Besides only the democrat run states are suffering.

  5. Congress is like that little kid from your childhood that would change the rules all the time so they can win

    1. @Hugh Kirk No actually Democrat and Democratic supporters in general
      *In Congress*
      Let’s impeach someone who is now a private citizen and no longer president in an effort to bypass the civilian courts

      *In public*
      We have terms of service guidelines that everyone should follow, expect we will only enforce it on conservatives (Ex: Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, Quora)

      Quora is especially guilty of this. They declare themselves to be all about free speech but regularly silence conservatives for being even slightly derogatory towards liberals while liberal members regularly cuss out conservatives and Quora does nothing about it

    2. @Jason Bolding At the time of impeachment Trump was not a sitting president he was a private citizen. If the democrats had a legitimate accusation they would have taken him to court, instead they wanted to bypass the courts and impeach him in Congress which they had majority control. Still failed by the way lol

    3. @Jason Bolding Under false pretenses with little evidence other than “we don’t like Trump”

      The founding fathers would have thrown out the entire Congress if they saw impeachment being used to remove someone from office because they didn’t agree with the president

  6. The media’s are in bed with corruption, they think that the people need their permission to elect who the choose.

  7. They have shown their butts to the world and now we all know what they’re afraid of. Someone who threatens their life long leeching off of the American people
