    1. @smart knucklehead: The Democrats had passed a stimulus package months before that Republicans blocked. It was only when it came down to looking like they were going to lose Georgia that the Republicans started talking about passing one, and one with lesser amounts. The $1,400 amount adds up to $2,000 the Democrats wanted to pass, Republicans only doing the $600. If you remember, Republicans spent their last weeks signing in new judges, not passing legislation for American people.

    2. @smart knucklehead “Cried a river of tears” over systemic racism seems kewl with you–until it becomes actual black people in the streets, then it’s “BlM and AnTiFA REEEEEEE!!!!!!” What a POS racist shitstain you are.

  1. What are the odds that Trump’s defense team somehow incriminates Republican Senators AND throws all of the Capital insurrectionists under the bus, while still being ineffective?

  2. Not everyone remembers but this lady got shot down in Jonestown Guyana in 1978. Her boss , Congressman Leo Ryan was murdered. She still dedicated her life to public service.

    1. She was at the Jonestown visit that led to the whole mass murder and suicide, as well as the enduring place of Kool Aid in popular culture? Gosh.

  3. On Aug. 7, 1974, Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., House Minority Leader John Rhodes, R-Ariz., and Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott, R-Pa., made it clear to Nixon that he faced all-but-certain impeachment, conviction, and removal from office in connection with the Watergate scandal…

    Nixon announced his resignation the next day, effective at noon on Aug 9, 1974.

    In his 2006 book “Conservatives Without Conscience,” former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean wrote that the Capitol Hill trio “traveled to the White House to tell Nixon it was time to resign.”

    In his 1988 autobiography, Goldwater wrote that after hearing their grim assessment, Nixon “knew beyond any doubt that one way or another his presidency was finished.”

    This was back when the Republican party still had at least a modicum of dignity, decency, integrity, and a sense of right and wrong. Today, thanks to Trump, Moscow Mitch, Graham, Nunes, Jordan, Barr, Meadows, and others, the wholesale corruption of the GOP is now complete.

    The Republican Party is now led by a kleptocratic crime boss who ruled over the most scandal-ridden administration in history. Nixon’s administration may have been  riddled with criminality—but in 1973, the Republican Party was still a somewhat normal party, that still played by the rules, so Nixon was forced to resign. But not anymore. Those days are long gone.

    The corruption we see in the Republican party today can be defined as institutional depravity. It isn’t an occasional failure to uphold norms, but a consistent repudiation of them. It isn’t about dirty money so much as the pursuit and abuse of power—power as an end in itself, justifying almost any means.

    Donald is now the grotesque face of the rot within the party itself. And it reeks of corruption, paranoia, fasc.ism, wild conspiracy theories, rac.ism and other types of hostility toward entire groups. Trump is no different than his authoritarian counterparts abroad: immoral, demagogic, hostile to institutional checks, demanding and receiving demagogic obedience and protection from the party, and knee-deep in the financial corruption that is integral to the political corruption of authoritarian regimes..

    1. @Titanium is Magical Obviously, you follow Q while I don’t have any idea what March 4th represents. While I and 95% of Trump supporter haven’t a glue what Q is, you believe it is the mainstream. Why? Because you’re spoon fed that narrative by the left’s equivalent of Q, MSNBC. Do you even know what came down today regarding Cuomo? It’s doubtful because your handlers don’t want you to know. Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, Brian Williams and Rachel Maddow are the Border Collies of the leftist media.

    2. @Peter Wysochanski I know what Qanon is, I have family and friends who believe in that BS, and they’re foolish Trump supporters too…I don’t care about Cuomo, he wasn’t the president getting all the intelligence. I don’t need the media to know what Trump was doing, I read his tweets… Trump is so predictable, many of us seen this coming 4 years ago….No media needed.

    3. @Titanium is Magical Then blame genetics, not Trump. I suppose you think Biden has all the intelligence know? Think about that for a minute. 3 months and he tells us that he’s figured out Trump had no plan and left him with nothing. Doesn’t seem like it should take that long does it?? It’s kind of like he’s figured out that it’s not as easy as he’s promised so he’s got to blame your devil? This the day after he announces his goals for getting back to in person education but neglects to mention that they were reached 2 months ago.You don’t care about Cuomo because you’re a leftist ideologue. You think Trump was keeping secrets from the states and he instructed Pence to withhold information. The states have no responsibility despite their billion $ Departments of Health. You should look up the 2015 NYS Ventilator Allocation Guidelines to see just how little you know about how lottle responsibility the Feds are supposed to have and how much Cuomo, et. al. cried and whined as they played politics with people’s lives while passing on doing their jobs. You have your own little Q like world that is over the edge but to the left.

    4. @Peter Wysochanski Trump cut the intelligence team in China from 47 down to 15 a couple of years ago. Trump purposely downplayed it all on tape with Bob Woodward. NYC and Seattle were hit first. Every state should have shut down during the first 6-8 weeks, and we would have been in a much better place today. That’s on the federal government not taking charge and leading. It starts at the top.

      As far as the left/right, the right has been running this show since 1981, and that’s why corporate america has us all living paycheck to paycheck. This 30 year trucker has lived through it.

    5. @Titanium is Magical The right has been running the show? Wrong. Corporation, aka, The Swamp is more like it. Ds or Rs, it didn’t matter. Then Trump came in and upset the apple cart. 4 years of spying, lies and attacks. Then the big cheat. Now you’ve got the SWAMP back and you can be all giddy. Hunters back in business.

  4. If Trump isn’t convicted by Republicans they’re opening the door to this happening again & thereby tacitly approving of it & are unelectable. Basically, they’re idiots.

    1. Attack honest God loving Americans
      (And protect the Kiddie Diddlers)

      Lincoln Project founders lied about John Weavers teen grooming grifting in millions.
      THEY KNEW: Lincoln Project Founders Lied About John Weaver’s Teen Grooming, Grifted in Millions – Big League Politics
      These people are sick.

  5. As a minority myself, it truly baffles me how any other person of color (or anyone with a soul for that matter) can support the same ideology as white supremacists.

    1. I can’t figure it out. I’m an old white lady, grew up in the segregated South, it really was American apartheid. Trump gave these deplorables permission, to mock others not like themselves, to be “first” in line, to even use violence against those who do not toe the line. I may have not witnessed all of that as a kid, but it sure existed.

    2. I’m white, and I condemned it since childhood. It’s common sense that no person should be above anyone else, no matter color, or creed. I fully acknowledge there are over 200,000 african americans who fought and died for this country, who I consider way more american than me.

    3. I cannot answer that. I live not far from where a trump supporter/supremacist shot up a Walmart full of people who look like me. And others who look like me still support trump. It’s unimaginable.

    4. @Brett Barnes
      No, and never would. Not interested in doing that kind of research. But when you say “real” white supremacists, you seem to discount many groups who espouse those values and do in fact support trump.

  6. I think That Trump and his followers need to retake Kindergarten. That’s where you learn how to be a decent contributing member of society. Trump, you need to be potty trained to attend classes.

  7. That makes sense… Rep Jackie Spiers of California! I have come to admire her! Listening to her story as a young Congressional aide in Guiana with the member of Congress she worked for… who got killed after Rev Jim Jones did this massive koolaide poisonings of his followers years ago. Wow. Not easy. Nowadays, she hangs in there. That’s hopeful! Thanks!

  8. When you cannot hold a political official accountable for what is so obvious says alot for what is to come ..they all knew what was going to happen trump didn’t keep that to himself …they are all responsible .. a embarrassment world wide.. noone is above the law..well not anymore…

  9. No one speaks of the Christmas bombing and the fact that Trump did not say one word about it. I think it is because he thought it was one of his supporters and he wanted more bombings so he did not discourage it

  10. As with Pearl Harbour and 9/11, January 6th should be known in future years as a National day of reflextion on the preservation of democracy, sadly called, “National Insurrection Day”.

  11. We all knew they would never do anything against twittler, and we can never allow them to forget it… No unity without equal justice

  12. The USA has got to start with campaign finance and lobbying laws. That is the foundational issue that’s led to cynical and opportunistic politicians who are beholden to wealthy donors and do not answer to the people. Sadly, I don’t see that changing any time soon.

  13. A truly revolting landscape before us now, and going forward. Qkooks within our senate chamber could care 2 s**ts for what the last 2 days of presentation contain, some not there physically while others simply ignore the moment….they are anti democracy.

  14. Wow! It’s time now for Dems to help true Repubs now to save the party of Lincoln! Ain’t that something! Three words….Earth Disturbing Trump.
