  1. Nothing’s more important than being truthful, knowing it and telling it.

    • @astev52 So it’s ok to lie because Odumbo did it? Haha. You need to give your head a shake and grow up. Politicians lie all the time. I don’t like it, but that’s the nature of politics, unfortunately. The better question is why do main stream news outlets lie -aren’t they here to bring you the truth? A: No, to propagandize. Goebbels would be proud.

    • @chaz000006 Seriously? One so-called lie, which was incredibly benign and could be more a mis-statement than anything else! Compared to trump’s THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of lies, many of them spewing hatred and bile unlike anything we ever seen, and your excusing trump, because of that? REALLY!!

    • @chaz000006 And what lies have main stream media outlet’s been telling? They are there to report on the news! Which they do, just because they broadcast a so-called lie from Obama, does not mean that they told it, which you tried to say! Are they the ones lying when they broadcast trump telling his many, MANY, MANY lies?

    • @chaz000006 And you say you want to “de-indoctrinate” people?? Like I said, you need to start with yourself first, before you cast accusations at others! Because, it is VERY clear, that YOU are the one who has been indoctrinated! Indoctrinated, by a hateful, vile pathological LYING conman.
      His lies, and hatred, and bile inspired the attack the city Washington, who’s goal was to depose the legally elected president! That is insurrection and nothing more than treason, and you’re so indoctrinated with this vile person, that you’re completely ok with it! What is WRONG with YOU??

    • @chaz000006 And one more thing, Goebbels would be in complete AWE of trump and the hateful, vile propagandized lies that he tells everyday! Complete AWE!

  2. Had the Republicans done their duty and removed Trump from office when he was impeached , none of this would have happened.

  3. My impression of his Jan 7th “speech” was that deploring the previous day’s hijinks sounds like he was throwing his activist supporters under the bus. They did their sacrifice. Trump got his optics yesterday, but now needs exit optics. He doesn’t care about these people anymore than he did about Covid victims. At some point in the Covid year he grokked that if he lost the election, he could say many of the mail in ballots were from….dead people. Covid dead. There’s nothing but strategy in his head. Will some of those people hear this speech see themselves tossed under a bus tire? This is some bus. When is Revell or Moebius or Monogram releasing the model kit for this thing complete with interchangeable figures?

    • sclogse1 Tha is a great idea. A model of the MAGA bus with Trump at the wheel driving over a road of his followers laid down like rail road ties.

    Trump said if he shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue he will get away with it, the taking over of Congress by Trump thugs is a good example of how toxic Trump and his supporters are.

    • Not so far.

      diaper donnie chose his deplorables well — he knew he needed the stupidist of the stupid and the craziest of the crazy and the lowest of the lowest and that’s what his basket of deplorables is. These thugs are more than happy to do his dirty work for him while he hides to be sure he remains safe — watches them all on tv and enjoying every moment of it while stuffing his ugly face with Burger King. GET HIM OUT NOW!!! There is just too much damage he can and will still do.

      @Oba***Man YouTube took my channel out It’s been working for him so far. We’ll see who has balls and who doesn’t in the GOP. diaper donnie can still do a lot of damage in the time he has left but these GOP clowns are both gullible and politically ambitious and greedy.

      @Ginger Miller
      I agree, no sympathy or empathy for the GOP, Trump has 74 million plus people who voted for him, he’s going to take them down the next 4 to 8 years to come.

    • @Ginger Miller – *Especially* now that they’re wanted for building ‘pipe-bombs’…and *being ‘cop-killers’.*

    Those republicans who still voted against the electoral college need throwing out for assisting in inciting violence. 25th, get him out of the peoples house NOW! They are either for the constitution or the mob- they made their choice clear.

  7. The fact that anyone got inside is UNBELIEVABLE, if 1 crazy person had an automatic weapon? WTF!?

  8. Why was the security so thin? This was well known in advance.

    • Of course! It was a coup!

    • @SUPER K LOL that’s got to be one of the dumbest conspiracy theories ever made i can’t imagine how stupid you have to be to see an 1 million pound aircraft crash into the buildings on live TV, and think no i think it was explosives placed just where the aircraft crashed that did the damage WTF its brain damage LOL

    • Simple. The person in charge of the National Guard was Donald Trump!

    • @SUPER K hahaha only nutjobs believe that, please don’t be a trumper.
      If you know a little about science you would know that torsion breaks metal in a 45 degree angle; meaning your “evidence” and “arguments” are assumptions built upon ignorance.

  9. This guy was one of the heroes of the day during the objections.

  10. So uplifting to see real patriots in the congress with integrity and honesty…gives me so much hope

  11. The truth will bring you along way….. the liar get caught and sunk quickly…..great work Rep. lamb …thanks

  12. Rep. Lamb – When you’re ready to run for President, you have my vote – Let’s help Joe & Kamala get the country back and better and then it could be your turn Sir

  13. If you want to know who was involved with the planning, look at the golfing videos from the last few visits

  14. Remove Trump.
    Remove all Senators who failed their oaths during the impeachment.

      Yes…but as soon as humanly possible….
      trump has already been underestimated and allowed way too much leeway far too long

    • @Katherine Raven – Twitter has *permanently BANNED* #45✳’s official account…and Facebook’s ‘locked him out’ until January 20th.
      “Sad!” 🤣

  15. The GOP has become the enemy of democracy–and thus the people.

  16. Charisma Hornum-Fries | January 8, 2021 at 2:58 AM | Reply

    Talking about being in touch with the constituents. He definitely showed that.

  17. The peoples house was always respected regardless to our differences. Never thought I’d see this done by our own Americans in my lifetime.

  18. No excuses will be accepted. The writing was on the wall. All the politicians who gambled with Trump need to resign. Every last one of them.

    Lamb spoke truth to power. We need more in Congress like him.

  20. BeatlesFanSonia | January 8, 2021 at 5:28 AM | Reply

    “No one is above the law” is the biggest lie ever told! This president and the Republicans have broken every law in this country! From the hatch act to treason and no one has paid a price! And, if you’re rich and white, you can spit on the law!
