On January 6, did we really expect more from other than a handful of rank-and-file congressional Republicans? Did we really expect the votes on certification of Biden’s state electors’ slates to be something other than pro forma? What about Mike Pence? Though we may have had a smidgen of hope that Pence might show some audacity, he played to type. Pence is a decent enough guy but has always had one foot anchored in the establishment. Lest we forget, that was a key reason Trump selected him to be Veep.

This is a somewhat hopeful view of things.

Personally, I am thinking hard about just stopping paying any attention to politics any more. I'm about done with the corruption, the treason and the backstabbing which is so normal. IMO, we need to use remedies stronger than can be arranged via the corrupted, fraudulent voting system. And so many folks have been convinced by the Enemedia and the propaganda in schools that at least half the country WANTS socialism/communism, and I see us ending up very quickly like Venezuela.
One thing to keep in mind. After the Boston Massacre, it took 6 years before things got really going as far as the American Revolution. Perhaps it just takes many years for people to finally decide to stop putting up with being enslaved. OTOH, Hitler controlled the German government entirely within a short time after the Reichstag fire, and that was the end of Germany as any sort of an elected government until it was entirely destroyed from without.

I suggest that we refer to Pence from now on as "Pontius Pence." A decent enough guy who really knows how to wash his hands carefully as he offers up the one and only guy trying to save us all. You can make of that what you will...but we all know it's true.

#1, I agree. Totally disappointed in Pence. But betrayal is a hard pill to swallow. This was a great article, imho. Encouraging and inspiring to a point. I'm going to lick my wounds and pray for PDT. As one of our children said, "Biden may be the President, but he's not the legal/dually elected one". Semantics? Maybe. But he meant it when he said it would be a "dark winter ahead"; his party knew what they planned. Yes, it's our Potomac moment in history, folks. It's cold, our shoes are worn out, we may not have the best of battle plans, but we have opportunity to be strategic and keep moving forward. Never give up!

The only hope we had was for Pence to sent this back to the state legislators. What we got was the Pontius Pence treatment.

A real MAGA Party in 2022. Take 10 Senate seats and 30 or so House seats and the RINO party will start to sweat and/or retire because they know that we know who they are. Primary every dam RINO and then in the general campaign switch to the MAGA party. We will take care of President Mattressback (Biden Who?) later. Trump's biggest accomplishment out of many was creating 80 Million Trumps.

#4, if there is a Constitution Party, or similar, I may vote. If it comes down to Repub vs Dem, I'll likely not vote for the first time in my three score and ten.

The Georgia results were 100% predictable. One may think Sidney Powell and her theories went up in Kraken smoke, but on at least one theory, she was absolutely right. Early on after the Presidential election, she exhorted Georgia Republicans to boycott the two Senatorial run-off elections. “Blasphemy,” the swamp bellowed. Yet, could the results have been any worse? Powell asked how one could use the same electoral apparatus that appeared to steal votes from President Trump, and then trust it for another election, especially using the same suspect Dominion machines. Moreover, the corrupt Republican Georgia Secretary of State, who had made a sweetheart deal

As dramatic scenes unraveled in the Capitol on Wednesday – with a horde plowing through security – the jarring live video showed a woman draped in a Trump flag who has been shot by a plainclothes officer as she allegedly purported to breach the storied chambers via the window. She was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition and later died from her wounds. That woman was later identified as a 14-year Air Force veteran from San Diego, Calif. Her name was Ashli Babbitt. Her husband, Aaron Babbitt, told KUSI-TV in San Diego that she was a "strong supporter of President Trump, and was a great patriot
Secession: A Gift to the Communists 16 replies

There is much loose talk about secession among conservatives. Focused as they are on the outrages of the Left – the cheating, the immorality, the welfare-state entitlement, and the rabid anti-Christian beliefs that put men in women’s bathrooms – conservatives think that these represent the fundamental existential threat to the Republic. They do not. Over the horizon lies the largest, most well-funded, most well educated, communist power in the history of the earth. It is atheist, secularist, and mercantilist. It has a Navy larger than our own and air forces quickly approaching ours in size and complexity. The communists hate the United States.

Almost nobody is more reviled by the international intelligentsia and media than the late Augusto Pinochet, the late 20th -century Chilean dictator. He holds a prominent position in the political left’s “rogues’ gallery” comprised of those who stood in opposition to their goals. His supposed “crimes” included conducting a military coup to illegitimately grab control of the Chilean government from a popularly elected president, rounding up and torturing huge numbers of innocent citizens (killing as many as 80,000 in the process) and corruptly stealing vast sums of money while ruling as a dictator. But many of those claims are either false or exaggerated

Within the report [direct pdf here] Navarro outlines the issues at stake within several key states in the election contest. The report highlights several troubling issues related to the way mail-in, potentially fraudulent ballots, were handled in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin Nevada and Pennsylvania.

Every once in a while, most of us wind up in situations where we are completely baffled. It may be a simple situation, such as having looked literally everywhere for our reading glasses, and not having found them. Did they violate the laws of physics and just vanish? One knows that that cannot be true, and yet, as the old saying goes, once one has ruled out every logical possibility, only the illogical remains, no matter how unlikely it is. Another situation is the one we are in now. Any informed person, with a modicum of sense, can see that the presidential
Why They Hate Trump 14 replies

Simply put, they hate Trump because he represents ordinary Americans — those who are not part of the political and corporate elite, who lack the advantages and connections of the Deep State, who are not media, academics, or celebs. President Trump puts ordinary Americans first, and it drives the elite nuts. The elite have spent so many years enjoying their advantages, including the psychological advantage of despising ordinary people, that they panicked when someone tried to take it all away from them. They can't go on living without that warm, reassuring sense of superiority. Contempt for average Americans was palpable in Hillary Clinton,

During the COVID pandemic, much science is at play, treated either as gospel or hate speech, enough for science professionals to lose their jobs or be suspended from social media platforms if their views are inconvenient to the establishment’s narrative. The all-knowing, all-caring, anointed guru of all things COVID, Dr Anthony Fauci, has been wrong at least as often as he has been right, with a predictive value of a coin flip. Yet any scientific utterance from him is treated in the media as a scientific law, on par with gravity, as long he speaks convenient science.

Our country has lost confidence in the election process. It's clear that our system needs an overhaul, and it's not too soon to start thinking about ways to prevent 2020's disastrous outcome.

Perhaps the most dogmatic Trump-hating network of all was very concerned about Venezuela corrupting our elections via Smartmatic voting machines. Yes, CNN! Watch this report from CNN, hosted by Lou Dobbs in his pre-FBN career, and reported by Kitty Pilgrim, who was always, in my view, a straight shooter. The report raises the question: why should U.S. elections be subject to manipulation by a foreign country, Venezuela, a country that is totally hostile? The video is four and a half minutes long, and the picture quality is not good, but it is compelling television in light of claims being made now about Dominion and Smartmatic.

Russian writer, historian, and political prisoner Alexander Solzhenitsyn was one of the most consequential men of the 20th century. He not only singlehandedly destroyed communism as an idea, but also had many things to say about the West which were greeted then about the way they'd be greeted by the Squad and progressives today. Yet they are worth revisiting in this turbulent era today. Like many of us, Solzhenitsyn had been de facto silenced by the Western media and denounced as a nut for recounting the true history of the Bolshevik Revolution and its bloody aftermath ase well as making warnings to the West.

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent. On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate. The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.

Beware, 75 million Trump voters.The media is calling for your ideological “cleansing” of Trump thought.In a column and tweet, ABC’s well-respected political director Rick Klein made the call after yesterday’s pro-Trump riots inside the halls of Congress.It is a sentiment throughout much of the political media and among Democrats who are also pointing an accusing finger at aides to President Trump who are resigning before their jobs end on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 13 days. Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.
