      Yeah, Rimjob, the walls are closing in.


    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      You’re just tickled to death that your commie junta is getting away with killing people, locking people up, ignoring their rights and in some cases the killing has started.

      Yet still you can’t see the slide into fascism you are supporting as the commie/fascist you are.

      Dowd, you are one disgusting leftist.

      F Pedo joe.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Do you feel that no one should have been arrested for the attack on the Capitol??

        Do you feel that police are at fault for shooting someone breaking into a building, e.g., that woman crawling through a broken window into the chamber where the Congresspersons were? Note too there was a mob with her shouting “Hang Mike Pence!” and “Where’s Nancy?”. The same mob had already beaten dozens of Capitol officers so who knows what they would do if they found the hated Pelosi or Schiff.

        Do you feel that the trumpster who attacked the FBI office in Cincinnati was unjustly killed when he raised his AR-15 style rifle on the police?

        Here’s the deal. Don Trump and his band of henchpersons stupidly attempted to hijack the presidential election of 2020. Deny it all you want, but that’s the fact, jack.

        Defund/destroy the GOP.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Why didn’t they arrest that black guy who shot and killed that girl?

        • david7134 says:

          Biden and the Dems stole the presidential election. There is no rule of law until that is made right. Thus, nothing happened at the capital except a black guy killed a white woman for no purpose, an everyday occurrence.

        • Dana says:

          Mr Dowd asked:

          Do you feel that no one should have been arrested for the attack on the Capitol??

          Given that we arrested almost no one for the entire summer of the black lives matter riots, riots that lasted for weeks and in some places months, riots in which people were killed and billions of dollars of property destroyed, yes, no one should have been arrested for the Capitol kerfuffle.

          The next Republican President should, on the evening of January 20, 2025, pardon every last one of the Capitol kerfufflers.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            But whatabout Black Lives Matter??

            Black Lives Matter didn’t try to overturn a Presidential election. And over 10,000 WERE arrested, 100s for serious crimes such as burglary and looting.

            One rioter was killed at the Capitol attack, a woman seen on video breaking through a inside window leading to members of Congress. She was mortally wounded by a Capitol officer. Several BLM protesters were killed, some shot, some run down by autos.

            Since you want the next ADP (Anti Democracy Party aka GOP) prez to pardon all the Jan 6 rioters, do you also support President Biden pardoning the BLM rioters now? If not, why not?

          • Dana says:

            The distinguished Mr Dowd wrote:

            Since you want the next ADP (Anti Democracy Party aka GOP) prez to pardon all the Jan 6 rioters, do you also support President Biden pardoning the BLM rioters now? If not, why not?

            Given that almost all of them have been pardoned, via the mechanism of non-prosecution, your question is mostly irrelevant.

            However, President Biden couldn’t pardon the majority of those few who were arrested and charged, because most of them were charged with state, not federal offenses.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            OK. As expected, Mr Dana changed the subject to black people, but the original question remains: Should the individuals who broke into the US Capitol on Jan 6, who physically attacked the overwhelmed Capitol officers, injuring dozens, who ransacked offices, who stole “mementos” have been arrested?

            Many of their alleged crimes were caught on video. Hundreds of those charged have pleaded guilty.

            Should these individuals have been prosecuted for their alleged crimes?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Mr Dana,

            Do you feel/believe that the 2020 election was stolen from then President Trump?

  2. drowningpuppies says:

    BTW, why isn’t Brandon out campaigning for the democrats instead of vacationing?

    Does he even know there’s elections coming up?

    Oh, silly me!

    Remember this guy?

    Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The violent mob on Jan 6 should feel blessed that more of them weren’t shot!

    • david7134 says:

      So says the nut job who only shows up to say stupid things to upset people. Amazing how useless some people are.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Are the fascists punishing thoughts now???

    A federal grand jury indicted a Mercer County (PA) man accused of threatening to “slaughter” FBI agents after the search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

    Forty-six-year-old Adam Bies was indicted on charges of interstate threats and influencing or retaliating against a federal officer by threat, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday.

    The Don on Truth Sociopath:

    “There is tremendous anger, like I’ve never seen before, over all of the scams, and this new one—years of scams and witch hunts, and now this if there is anything we can do to help, I, and my people, would certainly be willing to do that.”

    Yeah, Don, you’re just a hard-working businessman who sacrificed greatly to lead America from the liberal abyss…

    “It’s a nice country you got there, be a shame if somethin’ were to happen to it”.

    Your Leader is calling out to you, his loyal cannon fodder, for a nationwide Jan 6.

    Happy Trump Day! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_wink.gif

    Today also marks the Eight Day Anniversary of the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago.
    In 1976, 100 Israeli commandos raided Entebbe to rescue 94 passengers from a hijacked flight.

    46 years later, 30 FBI commandos raided Mar-a-Lago to rescue 15 boxes of presidential mementoes, including 3 bins of newspapers.

    from Marc Polymeropoulos in the Washington Examiner:

    I look at the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence through the prism of my former career as a U.S. government national security official

    Why does this matter in the wake of the FBI search?

    Put simply, because it is a fundamental notion of good government that no one, including any of our former presidents, is above the law. More importantly, I strongly believe that this concept should be openly discussed and celebrated. It is a teaching point for the world. We are not an aristocracy or dictatorship.

    Were I still serving overseas, I would have an easy talking point at my ready. At every diplomatic reception, when asked, I would simply say, “I have no idea what former President Trump did or did not do. The FBI will get to the bottom of this, I am sure. But really, the lesson for the world is that we hold everyone accountable, even former presidents.”

    Democracies survive such investigations, and even more so, they survive prosecutions of former heads of state. Look at France, South Korea, and Israel. A former French president (Nicolas Sarkozy) was sentenced to jail. A former Israeli prime minister (Ehud Olmert) actually went to jail as well. Numerous former South Korean presidents have been imprisoned. I cringe at the notion that the “unprecedented” nature of the FBI search is the primary concern. The president is not a king or queen. This great republic will survive a search of a former president’s residence and would even survive a criminal prosecution. Take a deep breath.

    Unfortunately, many in the GOP have acted as if the end of the world just occurred. Some on the far Right are even hysterically assessing that a second civil war beckons. Our adversaries are surely salivating at this drama. This is just disgusting behavior by some of our fellow citizens. It plays directly into the hands of our enemies and hurts the aspirations of oppressed people everywhere.

    We make it so easy for our adversaries. It would be helpful if more Republicans would act responsibly and call for calm. Let’s see how the facts play out.

    Finally, it might be worth reminding all those on the right viciously condemning the FBI that this same organization just broke up an Iranian plot to kill several Trump-era national security officials. The FBI appears to have performed marvelously in this task. Ask John Bolton or Mike Pompeo what they think of the FBI; I think their answers will be rather different than other Republicans who are whipping themselves into a frenzy.

    You cannot “back the blue” only when it is convenient to do so. The hypocrisy is staggering. I support my old FBI colleagues at this critical moment in time and simply state the obvious: Let the investigation play out.

    Reactionary devotion to former President Trump, above and beyond all other concerns, is dangerous to the nation.

    Tom Nichols, retired professor at the U.S. Naval War College, in The Atlantic:

    The United States now faces a different kind of violence, from people who believe in nothing — or at least, in nothing real. We do not risk the creation of organized armies and militias in Virginia or Louisiana or Alabama marching on federal institutions. Instead, all of us face random threats and unpredictable dangers from people among us who spend too much time watching television and plunging down internet rabbit holes. These people, acting individually or in small groups, will be led not by rebel generals but by narcissistic wannabe heroes, and they will be egged on by cowards and instigators who will inflame them from the safety of a television or radio studio—or from behind the shield of elected office.

    There is no single principle that unites these Americans in their violence against their fellow citizens. They will tell you that they are for “liberty” and “freedom,” but these are merely code words for personal grudges, racial and class resentments, and a generalized paranoia that dark forces are manipulating their lives. These are not people who are going to take up the flag of a state or of a deeper cause; they have already taken up the flag of a failed president, and their causes are a farrago of conspiracy theories and pulpy science-fiction plots.

    When people are driven by fantasies, by resentment, by an internalized sense of inferiority, there is no redemption in anything. Winning elections, burning effigies, even shooting at other citizens does not soothe their anger but instead deepens the spiritual and moral void that haunts them.

    Donald Trump is central to this fraying of public sanity, because he has done one thing for such people that no one else could do: He has made their lives interesting. He has made them feel important. He has taken their itching frustrations about the unfairness of life and created a morality play around them, and cast himself as the central character. Trump, to his supporters, is the avenging angel who is going to lay waste to the “elites,” the smarty-pantses and do-gooders, the godless and the smug, the satisfied and the comfortable.

    Nichols is a Never Trump conservative. Nichols argued that conservatives should vote for Hillary Clinton, whom he detested, because Trump was “too mentally unstable” to serve as commander-in-chief.

    In November 2020, President Trump lost a free and fair election by millions of popular votes and by the same number of EC votes he won by in 2016. Mr Trump refused to accept the results. His cult of personality has millions of followers.

    President Trump promoted a multi-pronged sub rosa scheme to overturn the results of the people’s vote, culminating in the then President instigating a violent attack on the day and time of the Constitutional Congressional and VP certification of the vote.

    For unknown reasons, as he left office, then President Trump took dozens of boxes of sensitive government documents to his home and resisted several efforts by the government to retrieve them. Some were retrieved, but many were retained by Mr Trump. The government then legally executed a search warrant to find and retrieve the remaining government property.

    Mr Trump and his business organizations continue to be under investigation by multiple US jurisdictions.

      You couldn’t have chosen a less credible and crazier anti Trump sicko if you tried. Quoting him to argue the raid is just is like quoting Stalin about economics.

      You need to realize Trump supporters are Americans too and they believe they are on the side of the Republic. You want to fundamentally change the republic.

      The left can’t keep trampling the rights of their political opponents and not expect sooner or later retaliation.

      Why do you need 87,000 new IRS agents when there are only about 1000 billionaires? Because they are your excuse to come after US!


      PROVE YOU WON. screaming we’re wrong louder and louder proves NOTHING.

      You are all liars so we believe nothing till it’s proven.

      F the pedo.
