    1. @Bill Casey Biden is quite and steady because He is a master screwing everything…Barack Usein Obama own words.😶😐😑
      We are awake and aware.😎😎😎😎
      Trump MAGA!!!!!🇺🇸❤🇺🇸❤

    2. I know the left has been doing that a lot recently. With all this woke mess going on they really do seem to be eating their own

    3. @lily florian
      please note that I was speaking to an earlier post, concerning how easily one might bribe or influence Biden, should one chose to do so.
      I assumed that Biden might have Broken earlier in his career , and might break again.
      I also assume that such a ” break” could occur during quiet times, when folks are not watching him.
      Not now, with all that is going on.
      Trump has already shown that he can be broken in a variety of times and conditions. Greed, fear, and foolishness, as well as moral wet- rot pervade him. The miracle is not that he can be can be influenced or bribed. He can be broken on any given subject, although he has been a pretty consistent foE of LGBTQ folks.
      The trump miracle is when he has a consistent moral guideline at all.
      LGBTQ, Chinese trade wars, possibly getting out of permawar in the Mideast ( altho that might be an accidental platform for him), and I don’t think there are others.

    4. In any Fascist group, one of their rules is “Disagreement Equals Treason.” Anyone who speaks out, says something different from the hive, or who otherwise breaks ranks gets thrown out. Had Trump gotten a second term, we might have reached a time where dissenters were executed.

  1. It’s great seeing the Republican Party showing its true colors. Them looking right into the camera lying. That’s their true nature

    1. Unfortunately not enough voters realize they are being lied to, or perhaps they do but aren’t bothered by it.

    2. @Mehrzad Ghasempour Imagine Republicans trying to be standard bearers on vote integrity. The insurrection at the Capitol failed so now another lie about nationwide voter fraud on hearsay.

  2. The only real question left at this point is “What is the rest of America going to do about it?”.

    1. @Darlene Jackson Jesus is lord, not the former president who has yet to willingly darken the door of a House of Worship! In fact, he is such a “good Christian” that he held a bible upside down out of ignorance. The reason he couldn’t quote his favorite part of the bible is that he doesn’t have a clue to what is in it! Even non bible reading, non church going Christians have heard of the 23rd Psalm, which would have a safe choice had he even known about it!

    2. @UCO7hiRFwFdx8JS1eegek1Dg Have you spoken to Jesus about every one of the 10 commandments Trump has broken? Thou shalt not lie. Thou shalt not commit adultery being 2 obvious transgressions. Additionally, Trump can only love himself to the exclusion of everyone else. He equates himself with the Lord proclaiming himself The Chosen One with sun streaming through the door artfully left open behind him. I seem to also remember the prohibition against worshipping false idols, all of which goes counter to the teachings of Christ. By worshipping Trump, aren’t you also commenting the sin of worshipping a false idol? You might want to think over what Jesus loves about Trump.

  3. The Republican Party stopped being the party of Lincoln when Eisenhower left the White House. Let’s not pretend like we didn’t see this coming.

    1. @Gnirol Namlerf what’s practical about keeping out the Muslims, banning Trans people from armed forces, and spending billions on a useless wall that constantly gets breached by $5 ladders made by immigrants? If only he ever did a single thing to protect your gun rights, your freedom of speech or anything like that.. You guys act like he was even somewhat practical but he did NOTHING to protect your rights. Other than whine and moan about the “dems” once he lost the election. What is practical about all the time he wasted? Could’ve had a real republican in that office do real good. Actual conservativism. Not trumpism

    2. And the Democratic party certainly isn’t the party of JFK,Martin luther king and most ppl are of the opinion your becoming the party of Lennon , moa se tong , ho chi min

  4. At the end of the day they go home, see their family and tell their children…’kids, we ousted Liz Cheney from House leadership for defying Trump’s ‘Big Lie.’

    1. @Nic Berni The Anticrist using trump and trump using the anticrist.They are both damaged by the same old people.

    2. @E E the devil made me do it is not a spectacular usefull defense in our earthly courts,judges tend to take the view “well you’ve admitted the offense so let’s punish you for now as the devil is out of my jurisdiction “😎


    1. @HSP The Show If there aren’t enough of us to destroy the Trumpublicans, then we can bend over and kiss our a** goodbye.

    2. Um, Your “caps” button seems stuck.

      I get it “Talk in a way that MAGAts understand”. Still…

  6. Relentless Pressure needs to be on the big donors if continue to donate then they need to be publicly labeled as bank rolling insurrectionest.

    1. @Wayne Thayer Perhaps, but it’s mainly the top 1%-5% of the wealthy and they donate to both parties.

  7. There is something in our Constitution about defending it against all enemies, even domestic ones.
    Republicans seem to have forgotten that part.

  8. Liz Cheney helped create this monster who has now destroyed her, This nightmare started 50 years ago. The assent of Saint Reagan forty years ago was a symptom and warning that things were going to end badly.

    1. I felt no love for Reagan. But he’s nothing close to Moby Trump. He didn’t hate Mexicans and didn’t vilify them and promise a wall will be built to keep them out. In fact, let I suggest you read up about the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which he approved, and even added provisions which improved it. That’s right, I said *_improved._* Now, please don’t be silly and accuse me of being a Moby Trump slurper. My point is that it IS possible to be politically conservative AND reasonable, and willing to work with liberals to improve this country, instead of being the power-hungry slobs/members of Moby Trump’s Death Cult

  9. Now I have a “Died” date to chisel on the tombstone I got for the Republican party when Trump was nominated.

  10. Rep. Liz Cheney should wear this punishment like a badge of honor!
    I’ve never been a big fan of hers but I’ll always give credit where credit is due, and she deserves it for refusing to push Trump’s Big Lie. I thank her for choosing America over Trump, truth over lies, and good over evil.

    1. @Buddha Cook Watch some Malcolm Nance on Youtube and read his books. he laid out the plot and the path years ago and has been proven 100% correct

    2. @Buddha Cook Also read up on America’s most awarded Marine, Gen Smedley D Butler whpo exposed a coup attempt by Americas Richest and most influential to take control of the Government keeping Congress and the president as puppets while having their operatives heading up and in the senior positions in all government agencies No one was ever charged
      Funny the Supreme court effectively delivered the same result with Citizens United so the wealthy can control the politicians and their appointees through Superpac money and lobbying – even writing the bills. The REAL DEEP STATE, but of course their allies in the media headed up by that Monarchist Rupert Murdoch with News Ltd point the finger always away from the real Deep State to someone else as they stir up outrage and resentment always casting the blame on their opponents

    3. @J . P Goodwin
      I’ve never liked Murdoch & now I know why🙄
      Thanks for the info👍
      I’ll take a gander at it.
      Have a nice day.
      It’s heading towards 7pm over/down here.

  11. McCarthy: “We are not doing what we are doing.”
    Trump: “Well, Kevin…”
    Lucifer: “Gentlemen you are gonna love it down here! You fit right in being so two faced and clever and good liars. Your rooms are ready and waitin. teehee”

  12. As a former Republican, I am appalled at the current gang of thugs in the Senate and the House. Disgusting, despicable and deplorable liars.

  13. “Until Republicans return to reality and become responsible, they should not be trusted with power again.”
    That’s been obvious for some time, the same warning others like me have been advocating, but it’s good that Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is amplifying that message. More Americans need to understand this.
