[SNIP] Shortly after Trump’s tweet, it was reported that Vice President Pence unfollowed him on Twitter.

Snippy. Couldn’t hit him with his purse so this was next best thing. As for the electoral vote, provincial Pence is looking at it personally. He is in violation of his oath to follow the Contitution. To serve and protect. Shrinking before our very eyes...

The oath of office of the Vice President of the United States: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God. How quickly Pence forgot.

I liked him only because Trump selected him. I understand the process and why Pence was chosen. Loyalty, to me, is one of primary characteristics of personhood.

It is extremely unlikely that VP Pence ever had any intention of running for anything in the future. He served the president well during his first term and would have served him (and us) well had the election not been rigged. According to the US Constitution there is nothing that Pence, as vice-president, could have done differently than what he has done. There is no point in focusing anger on this good man who did his duty.

I don't know who these Republicans think will ever vote for them again. I sure as hell won't and I won't contribute a dime. And I am totally serious. A lifelong voter, I held my nose and voted so many times. No more. When the game is rigged, there is no point in playing. Georgia found that out. The GOP is neither hot nor cold... and thus I spit them out!

Pence doesn't care about winning another election, people. He's gonna be a Paul Ryan. In an attempt to destroy Trump and US, they don't realize that they're destroying themselves. It's not as clear as the story in the bible, but this is the Haman effect. They erect gallows for others, but they will hang on the very gallows they erected. Mitch, thought Georgians would get out there and vote to help keep him in the majority leader position. Now, he has to take a back seat to Chuck U, powerless as he retires a nothing and a nobody. Yes, it's bad for US, but it will be bad for them too. And I do mean you too, Tim Scott.

# 8 - it's called blackmail. Justice Roberts was involved with the Epstein bunch and has adopted children through Epstein. That's why he sold his soul. Pence is also being either threatened or blackmailed. The Chinese own us and I seriously doubt there will be another election.

I am so disappointed in Pence. He had the opportunity to save America from Socio-Communism, but apparently took what he thought was the easy way/high road out. It will not prove so for him... or for all of us if Biden is president. There are so many stupid, greedy, swamp critters in office and Pence has evidently thrown in with them.

All GOP senators and congressmen who certify fraudulently begotten electors will be identified and held to account politically. The GOP party will be held to account by many like myself who will no longer donate and will seek a different political party. America needs to seriously consider establishing a new political party that walks the talk of Conservative values. Mr President, please lead us to form a new and ethical party.

#6, it's an issue of loyalty and doing the right thing for the people who supported Pence and Trump. You don't surrender to the enemy thinking it's the right thing to do or won't make any difference. The issue that comes into play is, whether you have the heart and the character to defend what's right under the rule of the LAW! Trump's Presidency was stolen and Pence didn't have the soul as a Christian to fight for what's RIGHT for God, the People and the Country.

I agree with # 6 and think Pence did his duty as he saw it. Could he have questioned those slates of electors? Maybe, but I am no Constitutional scholar and will not assume that Pence acted in bad faith simply because he didn't take the course we wanted. He may have felt bound by that 1887 law, who among us has a clear answer?

Sorry, #27, I just can't go there anymore. We know what took place in the election and the same thing happened again in Georgia. It also happened in the 2018 election with Scott Walker and Tony Evers. Fraud and deception is the only way that Democrats can win. I won't paint Mike Pence in any kind of positive light. He had a duty to have the election audited and caved.

# 32 you may be right that Pence caved. But for my part I am not sure that he didn't do his duty as he saw it. Neither of us can can get inside his head, but it no longer matters. IMO where this all really fell down is in the respective state legislatures. They passively allowed their own laws to trashed and cleared the way for Democrat corruption.

I think the Republicans as a whole are the cause of the downfall we face. Backstabbing lazy asses who just wanted to get on FOX and talk about another hearing.. how the media was so bad to them. Ms Lindsey should be followed around and hassled. Mitt the traitor rat should be followed and harassed. Never a moments peace. The Republican party died when Pres Trump was elected and their leaking and backstabbing started. By the way, where the hell has Kellyanne Conway gone to? I know she left to concentrate on family but.. I still think she was a leaker. Her husband was a rabid Trump hater and I think she kept him informed. Did not trust her from the get go. At any rate... Biden voters will suffer like the rest of us.. and can't wait to ask them who they voted for when the whining starts....Republicans are cowards. I am done

If you go back and look at one of my previous posts, I reminded this group about the time a week or so before the 2016 election when Paul Ryan and Mike Pence conspired to attempt to replace the republican candidate Donald Trump at the last minute. It was proved by a leaked email. Mike Pence has always been a traitor, and I think (as often happens) that Donald Trump was forced by the republican party to accept Mike Pence as his vice president. Unfortunately he had many traitors forced on him. Pence is a snake. I'm starting to believe the rumors about him being involved in child trafficing.

I think now I know how Northerners felt when Lincoln was assassinated. They couldn't beat us fairly on the field of battle, so they killed our leader. The 1863 democrats' way of cheating. This time it was less deadly; but quicker, easier and a lot cheaper.

If Pence unfollowed Trump on Twitter it was a waste of time, as Trump’s Twitter account has been locked up until after Biden is inaugurated. The smart thing for Pence to do is stay quite for the next two weeks until Trump is out of office and not become a stooge for the leftist and liberal Democrats and their media allies, or Pence will risk losing the future support of the about 75 million Trump supporters. Remember almost all the Trump supporters are Republican voters, and no Republican can make it through future Republican primaries without the Trump supporters backing him or her. It probably does not matter because there is really no wimpy establishment Republican out there who will be able to win a General Election against the leftist and liberal Democrats, unless the State legislatures tighten up their election security, and there is no chance of that happening in the Democrat States where Democrat candidates have benefited greatly from ballot and election fraud over the years and where such fraud is being greatly refined through technical means involving electronic voting machines.

U.S. Space Command is reportedly leaving Colorado Springs for Alabama in what Gov. Jared Polis is calling a "politically motivated" move by outgoing President Trump. Polis in a statement said Trump overruled recommendations to keep Space Command in Colorado Springs, saying the president's decision was "deeply concerning." U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, called the move a "horrendous decision" and saying it will "materially damage our national security."

Seattle-based Amazon.com, Inc. has asked a federal judge to deny a request to reinstate the cloud-service account for conservative social media network Parler. The company's lawyers on Tuesday claimed Parler shrugged off police violence content on its site before and after the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The Seattle Times reported that Parler filed a lawsuit Monday against Amazon claiming a breach of contract and antitrust violation after its account was suspended. Attorneys for Amazon said the case was not about suppressing speech but about what they called Parler’s “demonstrated unwillingness” to remove content that threatens public safety. Parler claims Amazon colluded with Twitter to “kill Parler’s business."

When “All in the Family” debuted Jan. 12, 1971, on CBS, it was exactly the TV show America needed — though America didn’t realize it at the time. Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin had taped two ABC pilots of the scrip t, both starring Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton, starting in 1968. But ABC was reluctant to commit; as Lear told Variety’s Army Archerd, it was “too controversial.” Lear and Yorkin took the show to CBS, which surprisingly bought it.

I don't have a problem with arresting people who break the law. I do have a huge problem with selective prosecution and enforcement. When Black Lives Matter mobs besieged Washington D.C., attacked the White House, assaulted Secret Service members, vandalized national monuments, and set a church on fire, the Attorney General had to lean hard just to get the most basic arrests and prosecutions going. (It goes without saying that none of the rioters were fired.) And the media played defense for the rioters and feigned outrage at criminalizing "protest". By September, the DOJ had managed to charge just 300 rioters for taking part in the BLM violence nationwide.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.
