    VP Pence’s statement: “Our Founders were deeply skeptical of concentrations of power and created a Republic based on separation of powers and checks and balances. Vesting the VP with unilateral authority to decide presidential contests would be entirely antithetical to that design.”

    Did Trump really hope/expect/feel/believe that Pence would sacrifice himself? Did any of you?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The Trump Riot is ongoing in DC! Good job, Traitors! MAGAts have stormed the US Capitol and are damaging property. Are you ashamed or do you support them?

    If BLM/antifa had conducted this attack, what would conservatives be saying? LOL.

    • Professor Hale says:

      No need to guess. BLM/Antifa DID conduct that attack, for 4 straight years, but with a lot more burning, looting and murdering. And conservatives, even the ones in the DC march right now are still against burning, looting and murdering.

        When cops used tear gas against leftwing rioters, the establishment/corporate order called it a “war crime.”

          Did the previous protesters storm the US Capitol? No, they didn’t.

          Were the BLM protesters trying to overturn an election? Did they try to occupy the US Capitol? No. Were they trying to stop the most basic of democratic processes? No.

          That was Trump and his henchmen.

          But we’re not surprised that MAGAts defend MAGAts.

          This is an attack on the US system of democracy led by a tin-pot dictator wannabe. This is an attempted coup, pure and simple.

          The rebellion will be defeated. Some will be arrested. Some should be hanged. Trump will lose the election. Democracy will prevail. President-elect Biden will be inaugurated. Trump and the GOP will pay a price.

          One IED has been found at the US Capitol. Two others suspected, one near House Office Building, one at the Library of Congress.

            No, indeed – that was the work of the Democratic party for the last four years.

            “This is an attack on the US system of democracy led by a tin-pot dictator wannabe. This is an attempted coup, pure and simple.”

            Yes, the fraudulent election was all of that. That IS what you meant, right?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The Crotchsniffing trumpboy confuses protests with an attack on democracy.

      One rebel was trying to take down the American flag from the Capitol building to replace with a Trump Flag.

      The Representatives and Senators will return yet today and finish certifying Trump’s humiliating loss.

      Trump the Coward is in hiding, neither taking responsibility for the violence he’s incited nor stopping this attack on America.

          analstorm,

          We understand the helplessness that trumptilians feel. House, Senate and WH now all belong to the Dems. Courts, including the Supreme Court are reasonable and patriotic and haven’t fallen for trumptilian bullshit. It hurts to lose. It hurts worse to lose, bigly.

          Again anal, protests are different from an attempted coup. When was the last time an insurrection occurred in the US?

          Authorities need to clear the Capitol immediately. If it takes all night, the House and Senate need to complete certifying the count against trump. The Sedition Caucus, i.e., Trump, Sen Hawley, Cruz, and the other grandstanding Senators, all the grandstanding Reps need to pay the price for their behaviors.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            That’s weird because when leftwing terrorists set fire to federal buildings and laid siege to a federal courthouse for an entire summer no one recalls Rimjob requesting that the “authorities” quell the insurrection.

      • Nighthawk says:

        Where the hell were you saying this crap when Antifa/BLM were storming state capitol buildings? Attacking and burning police buildings? Attacking politicians at their homes? Not a peep from you but let one or two right wing idiots do something stupid and you jump all over it. Just STFU and GFY.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          It was thousands of right-wing idiots (trump-supporters) ransacking the US Capitol, not one or two. They were directly incited by US President Trump and at least two US Senators who intend to run for president in 2024.

          It was trump-supporters who plotted to kidnap and kill the Michigan governor.

          Now trump-supporters in the conservamedia are trying to distance themselves from their previous incitement. Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Brian Kilmeade, Laura Ingraham, Greg Kelly (Newsmax), Tucker Carlson, My Pillow Guy, Jim Hoft, Sinclair Broadcast… are claiming “no real” trump-supporter would act this way and that antifa was involved.

          74 million Americans attacked America, incited by the President, con-Reps, con-Senators and a sycophantic right-wing “media”.

          Besides catching Covid, another reason the insurrectionists will regret not wearing masks is that they are easily identifiable by the FBI.

  4. Est1950 says:

    Even this evil is productive of good. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to the public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.

    1 Unsuccesful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medecine necessary for the sound health of government.” – Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, Paris, January 30, 17872

    I defeat my enemies by making them my friends….Abraham Lincoln.

    Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing. Thomas Paine.

    On every unauthoritative exercise of power by the legislature must the people rise in rebellion or their silence be construed into a surrender of that power to them? If so, how many rebellions should we have had already? Thomas Jefferson.

    God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. Richard Henry Lee.

  5. Est1950 says:

    Blm felt aggrieved. They did something about it.

    Antifa felt aggrieved and did something about it.

    LGBTQ felt aggrieved and did something about it.

    And now???

    The right feels aggrieved and they are doing something about it and it is only just now getting up to speed.

    The ones that better grease up is Corporations and big business which has shit all over the right who has been their staunchest defenders. The left already hates corporations. Well guess what you dumb shit corpos. You done fuked up.

    You might not exist in this country in the next 4 years. Better start prepping your move to China.

    It’s gonna be a long 4 years Joe Biden. A long 4 years and I am one that said from the day after the election that Trump has lost and will find no sympathy from the Supreme court or any court.

    I am paid to observe, anticipate, analyze and evaluate trends. I can tell you two distinct truths.

    Big Business, Wall Street, Corpos and Billionaires will be leaving the country in droves in the next 4 years.

    Secondly the right is just now getting organized and there will be massive primary challenges of sitting GOP members, many, many of which will retire rather than be embarrassed by losing 80-20 in primary.

    Take these two things to the bank. Big Business, Corporations and fossil fuels can go fuk themselves as far as the right is now concerned and the democrats feel the same way. Get ready to ride your bikes people.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Got it. Attacking the seat of government, breaking down doors, leaving behind IED is the same as BLM protests.

      You traitors are ignoring that this was an attempt by MAGAts to overthrow the gov’t.

      • The Left Are Traitors says:

        “Got it. Attacking the seat of government, breaking down doors, leaving behind IED is the same as BLM protests.”

        Attacking the seat of government is what Free Citizens SHOULD do when that government ignores and harms them. What SHOULDN”T be done is burn down the homes and businesses of innocent civilians and burn down their cities like leftist commies do.

        I heard nothing about an IED but I would commend it. We don’t control the army, the police, the DoJ, the National Guard or even the courts so IED’s seem one way to effect injury on the enemy. Guerilla warfare is what we need en masse. That would also include assassinations of Democommies wherever they be found. Arson, kidnappings and bombings are the way the OPPRESSED fight back.

        I told you before not to bitch, moan and cry when shit happens because it’s YOU and your treasonous commie comrades that drove people to this point!!!!! When you corrupted the election and laid the groundwork for ALL future elections to be a fraud you forced us to weaponize.

        “You traitors are ignoring that this was an attempt by MAGAts to overthrow the gov’t.”

        First of all Patriots fighting to save their Republic are only “traitors” in the eyes of the oppressors, YOU!!! Secondly it is an attempt by Freedom loving Patriots to overthrow an illegitimate ONE PARTY COMMUNIST COUP. Your comrades may rule but they’ll never be the TRUE GOVERNMENT.

        Next comes the anti-right crackdown, then during left wing consolidation the anarcho-tyranny goes up to 11 and the right wing’s support of the system goes to 0, then the complete defeat of the GOP and we enter one party rule, then the “and your little dog too/because I can” legislative, law enforcement, financial, and social oppression, then the backlash. This is a long slide down, buckle up. Ask the Spanish.

        There will be no reconciliation. America is broken, unless conservatives want to be ruled and represented by queers, menopausal harpies and harridans, and socialists. Conservatives of whatever stripe or tribe may be willing to talk and compromise. The left can’t. They will tear the country apart, and tear us and themselves apart unless they are stopped.

        For most of us, the ideas we have about God, nation, country and race would, 35 years ago, place us in the majority and by most measures we’d be considered “good people”.
        Those same beliefs we all hold today make us unemployable, dissident, subversive and possibly amenable to prosecution, incarceration and soon execution.

          You fuking traitor, you believe the lies pushed by the fuking tRump and his fuking henchmen/terrorists. The election was stolen. The fix was not in. Americans do not support fuking traitor tRump.

          The House needs to vote tonight to impeach the fuking traitor in our White House. Then immediately, the Senate needs to vote the fuking traitor out of our White House.

          We cannot trust the fuking tRump to act in the best interest of the US or its people. There is no way to imagine what more damage he has in mind.

          The fuking tRump and traitors such as you and fuking tRump’s fuking henchmen need to answer to real Americans. Senators Hawley and Cruz should resign. The House needs to immediately eject the Sedition Caucus.

          Don’t try to sugarcoat this you fuking traitor. This is not aggrieved Americans, this is a bunch of fuking traitors like you, following their fuking Messiah in trying to overthrow America.

      • Est1950 says:

        The right movement is much more dangerous than antifa/BLM.

        The reason.

        The right does not enjoy support from Corporations and government officials both state and Nationally.

        The lefts rioting and burning of cities is mostly peaceful. This was Mostly Peaceful.

        I have it on authority that people on the right are talking of adopting the tactics of Antifa. Dressing up, wearing masks and gear. Becoming violent in the streets.

        I DISCOURAGE THIS!! Elwood attacks me for posting the grievances of the millions who feel aggrieved. The people who are losing their homes, businesses and livelihoods that have fought and worked hard for them for a lifetime and then the very people who they support.

        THE GOP….says oh we will once again give big corpos lots of money and by the way you little fukkers can go fuk yourself here is a pity check while we celebrate the return of the swamp in DC so us elitists can return to our lives of excess.

        I repeat. This movement flaring up by the right is 10x’s more dangerous than anything the left has done because it does lack standing and I discourage it strongly.

        I have never, nor will I ever advocate violence. The right simply needs new strategies.

        • Est1950 says:

          I am paid huge dollars to spot, study and evaluate trends.

          When I post things here it is not personal. I post what the pulse of the people are feeling. by the way. I also post in this manner on left leaning blogs to annunciate the feelings of those on the left.

          None of what I post is my personal opinion or feeling. I personally denounce BLM, Antifa and anything the right is planning on doing. I denounce them breaking into the capital.

          Those people may not realize they are all going to prison for a long time. Something BLM/Antifa does not have to fear because of a system that supports their anarchist ways.

          The right feels severely repressed and are being backed into the proverbial corner. When you back 125 million people into a corner and then those that you vote for and who are supposed to be your voice, turn their backs on you and reject you for their elitist lifestyles then what does anyone expect to happen.

          The right snapped. The election was the turning point. It was the start of the civil war. Yes. I fully believe that the civil war started yesterday.

          And I will Caution Donald J. Trump. IF he doesnt STFU and leave office. Stop this horse shit because you have the swamp and the establishment and the billionaires all gunning for you. Well what lies ahead for you is the first president in the history of the USA imprisoned for Inciting insurrection.

          Trust me AT REAL DONALD TRUMP. YOU are walking on a tight rope in a hurricane right now. You best STFU and work hard on transferring power to Biden and let the fight continue once your out of office.

          Just my two personal cents. Even those on the right have now thrown up their hands and no longer support Trump or will risk themselves defending him. Its time to move on Mr. President. You were cheated and defrauded but the courts said sorry Mr. President don’t go away mad…just go away.

    tRump the fuking traitor lost the election. It wasn’t stolen. More Americans voted for the other guy. That’s how elections work, regardless of how entitled or privileged someone like the fuking traitor tRump sees himself.

    Oh, all the evidence on the interwebs. Great! The courts, DOJ, FBI, AG, DHS, even the Supreme Court need to be notified where they can find all that credible evidence!!

    The nuGOP died today. The coup failed. The Republic survived.

  8. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The American “patriots” who ransacked the US Capitol removed the American flag and replaced it with a trump flag. The Divided States of Trumperica? They carried more Trump flags than American flags. They paraded through our Capitol waving confederate battle flags. Were they really American patriots?

    Why would anyone claiming to be an American patriot support overturning the election by extra-Constitutional means, on the flimsiest of “evidence”? Is that patriotism?

          No body was traitors. They were American citizens protesting. Stop the violent rhetoric Elwood. Or they will come for you. Men in vans. In the middle of the night. Trust me.

          You are no less inciting violence and insurrection then those breaking into the capital. There is a law which says that if you egg some one to violence you are just as guilty as the perpetrator.

          I understand there are people here with high emotions and anger issues but you keep egging them on to commit treasonous acts and you are no different than the scum you pretend to revile.

          Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

          Would you not agree that BLM/Antifa attacking government buildings and attacking federal law enforcement protecting the White House were violating this tenet of our laws.

          Yet in this world BLM/Antifa will get a pass because they have heavy funding from big corpo’s and the support of the democratic party. Those who do the same things on the right have no standing and certainly have NO SUPPORT FROM THE COWARDLY GOP.

          So when you start throwing righties into jail then all hell will break loose. That will be the start of things none of us want to have happen.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            The president of the US urged followers to attack the Capitol on the specific day the Constitution instructs Congress to certify the election. That’s traitorous.

            Yes, some in the BLM/antifa protests committed crimes. But they did not ransack the US Capitol under the urging of the president. That’s the difference. If a crime is committed, by all means arrest the perpetrators.

            Yesterday was a culmination of trump’s month’s long false claims regarding the election. Perhaps you can excuse the mob since they were being controlled by the leader of their cult, trump.

        Tragic as it was, her white privilege did not protect her. What did she expect breaking through the doors with police telling her to halt? Behind her were hundreds of “wild” rioters ready to flow in like so many rats. She was breaching the Senate Chamber, breaking the glass in the doors that had been barricaded to protect US Senators. Police are investigating the shooting.

        • We ARE The Resistance says:

          Hey. If you don’t stop justifying violence you deserve what you get Elwood. I remember when screaming Harridans broke into the Senate chamber to attack Kavanaugh or did you conveniently forget that? She was “breaching” nothing and even if she was SHE WAS UNARMED. If she were black WHAT WOULD YOU BE SAYING?

          “Every time a left-wing group gets violent, we’re immediately told the protest was Mostly Peaceful, and the people who assembled peaceably – and their political leaders, no matter how incendiary their rhetoric – are 0% responsible for any injury or destruction that occurred.

          We’re told it’s really all OUR fault for not listening to the grievances of the “protesters” who turned violent, even as we watch video of them merrily looting retail stores. We forced them to steal those TV sets by not yielding to their political demands!

          Irresponsible political leaders who fanned the flames of left-wing violence and help the perpetrators escape accountability for their actions are never held to account, never told they must resign, rarely even advised to tone down their rhetoric.

          And many – most – of the left-wing riots and killings of recent memory were based on falsehoods and misinformation. Outright lies were blasted by left-wing politicians and media without consequence, entirely BECAUSE they wanted to whip people into a frenzy.

          And we were told all of that was fine, acceptable, even praiseworthy because their violence brought CHANGE and their lies illuminated DEEPER TRUTH. Okay, sure, we got everything about Mike Brown or Trayvon Martin’s deaths wrong, but there were legit grievances to be addressed!

          We have to stop doing that. We have to insist that every quarter of our political spectrum renounce violence, and the willful incitement to violence, completely and absolutely. No more cutesy-poo nudge-nudge wink-wink when lefties burn and pillage. No more double standards.

          No more celebration of Noble Lies that illuminate Deeper Truth by the light of burning homes and businesses that were destroyed by mobs with Legitimate Grievances. No more indulgences for those who wantonly break the laws of the System That Failed Them.

          That is a principle, and we should all be able to agree on it, no matter what else we disagree on. Absolute zero tolerance for political violence is a message that can save lives and prevent destruction if we all say it together and demand our government acts accordingly.

          But if we decide the tolerance level for political violence will not be 0.0, then all that remains is for our armies to meet in the streets. Violence is too powerful, too USEFUL, and too profitable to be ignored when it is indulged.”

            trump urged supporters to storm the Capitol and they did. He said he was going to lead them but he chickened out and bunkered down.

            Connies’ response: “Eek! Negroes!!”

            Not one connie has said the insurgent MAGAts shouldn’t have broken down the doors of the US Capitol sending 13 officers to the hospital. trump’s plot was to stop the Jan 6 Congressional certification by leading his henchmen. He pressured VP Pence to subvert democracy. Of course we all know that trump never past one day in making decisions. Congress regrouped after the trump troops left the Capitol and and certified the votes for Mr Biden and Senator Harris.

            trump will be gone no later than Jan 20. Maybe sooner.
