Rev. Franklin Graham, one of the president's most loyal supporters, called out those who breached the Capitol building Jan. 6th, saying they're "thugs" and should be prosecuted.(Snip)Graham also said he disagrees with the movement to impeach the president, calling it a "waste of time" and predicted it would sharpen political divisions. "On one hand they talk about unity and bringing the country together but yet you've tried to impeach the president a second time," he said. "They're just putting fuel on the fire with this impeachment

Our Marxist enemies will impeach Donald the Greatest President Ever once again. It will not matter to me a bit because our valiant leader, all alone, stopped the Globalist Great Reset of jobs to China. Communists can Tear down our wall but our eyes have been opened. I will not forget the steal in 5 African cities - Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Detroit, Pittsburg and Atlanta. Now they have their reparation goodies, and as the pendulum swings it will be our turn again. I love Trump. God keep him safe.

Will be kind of fun to watch them say they're going to impeach President Trump after he leaves office. If that's possible, can we impeach bill Clinton again?

#1 is correct, Rev Graham. NO one broke into the capital, they were let in by the Capital police. No one was killed by the protesters. One committed suicide and the other had a stroke. Let's get the story straight Rev.

And what about politicians who steal from their constituents, enrich their family members using the position of their elected office, and sell out their country to foreign interests? Where is the outcry over that?

Why to these quislings on the right always feel they have to say stupid stuff like this? You are being used as a useful idiot by the media! There were only a handful of thugs who "broke in" to the capitol and they were Antifa. It was a setup that didn't even go off well. Then the MSM shoves the lies down America's throats 24/7, and then idiots like Franklin G., who are watching too much cable news (any amount is too much IMO), spew this bilge so they can prove that they are a "good person." BTW, Franklin. and esp his father Billy, reportedly have had SERIOUS moral deficiencies. It's out there for anyone who wants to research.

Some of them did break in, or tried to. Ashli Babbitt was killed during an attempted break-in. she was a Trump supporter and so were others. The vast majority of people at the rally, of course, were peaceful. The media has taken the actions of a few to accuse everyone who was there with rioting and "insurrection." Franklin Graham is not the enemy.

Someone might politely ask Rev. Graham if he thinks Jesus acted like a thug when he drove out the moneychangers from the temple...or if he had, you know, reasons. Asking for a friend.

I can take a very educated guess as to what is going on. I think the only thing that Donald Trump did wrong was his naivete about the Democrats. He really thought he could work with them and from the minute he was elected by the American people, the onslaught of hate was directed at him. We had the recounts, Russian dossier, Ukraine fraud perpetrated by the Biden family, and the impeachment. The Corona virus was unleashed onto the American people and people like Fauci and Mike Pence were supposed to be competent. Now I question even that aspect. Over the summer, we had death, destruction and devastation thrust onto the innocent public. People lost jobs, businesses, family, friends etc. Democrats, liberals and Never Trumpers knew they had not yet tarnished Donald Trump's image. They now want to whitewash any evidence of fraud. Yet, Joe Biden said it. Democrats had the most extensive fraud system in place. If he and Kamala Harris were lying, they should not be voted in and if they were telling the truth, they should not be voted in. Democrats can "clean" everything up but I will always be convinced that Joe Biden won by cheating. Well, they still have to tarnish Donald Trump's image because, of course, Americans still have to be convince. Alas, January 6. Franklin Graham: thugs let these very misguided Trump supporters in and the trap was set. Go to the Old Testament - you should know the traps that get set by evil people. Security was so loose that frustrated and angry Trump supporters found a way to express their rage. Was it right? Absolutely not. What do you expect when state legislatures do nothing, Congress is a nothing-burger, and the integrity of the November 3, 2020 election is in shambles?

The Capitol was the Trojan Horse in reverse. They tricked some over zealous Trump supporters into following Antifa thugs and used that as an excuse to say ALL Trump supporters are nut jobs. 250 years ago these would be the same people telling Patrick Henry to shut up & sit down and then they would try to arrest Alexander Hamilton and Tom Jefferson!

This episode has been a TREMENDOUS propaganda coup for the dims. They have benefited- at least until the smoke clears- tremendously. We saw the videos in 2016 in which the dim operative said that his job was to plant people in Trump rallies to foment violence to give Trump a black eye. We have seen videos of Dim operatives present at the Capitol, calling themselves antifa. It would be naive to believe that the dims would not act to create precisely what happened. The benefit was solely to them, as any reasoning person could see both before and after. If a man gives a speech to a crowd and says act peacefully, and another man has agents in the crowd who are paid to foment violence, who is responsible for the violence? The dims certainly do not have the high moral ground. Kamel A Hairass promoted violence on the late show in June 2020 saying the violence should continue. The dims ruthlessly, illegally and unconstitutionally exploited the "pandemic" to open a huge hack in the voting process: mail in ballots, aka print your own ballots, in those places where they exercised absolute control of the counting process. The violence of the russian hoax gambit and the Ukraine phone call gambit were immoral. The violence taking place all summer was immoral. Defund the police is immoral. So please: no blanket mea culpas from our side. Do what needs to be done to fix the propaganda fiasco; hopefully it won't be as hard as it appeared in the immediate aftermath. But remember- the dims are immoral, they do not have the moral high ground. Unfortunately, they have all the levers of power.

Oh come on. It has been the pattern since the summer of 2016, BEFORE Trump was elected; the Marxists commit the crime, then they indict innocent people for the Marxist's crime. Do you think (well, so many people have stopped doing that over understandable outrage) the Marxists, who own all three branches of government now will stop doing that? And stop with the "expose it" stuff. The Marxist crimes can't be any more exposed and they just keep committing their crimes and getting REWARDED for committing them like it's been for at least a decade. Not "same as it ever was" now; it's worse than it ever worse and will keep on getting worse. Exposure, Mr Graham's article, now voting have not made a thing efficacious. Perhaps someone or a bunch of someone's can realize that and come up with a much better tactic than what's been used for the past 25 years. Exposing the truth, a good and necessary thing to do, has to try to keep going but by itself, it has not changed a thing. Things are only MUCH worse since 1995, and now the Marxist takeover is complete. If you need physical evidence of that, look at your damn mask.

As far as Graham's state goes, yes. But what about those who were invited in and walked within rope lines ? They're being cast as thugs. One can hardly even call them trespassers since the doors were thrown open for them.

#15 - My dear realist friend. I agree totally. I'm tired of the hopium. Its time to face the fact our nation is no longer free, and hasn't been for a long time. President Trump fought the good fight, but the evil overwhelmed him and us. I still hold out a 10% chance he's got another card up his sleeve. Never bet against Donald J. Trump, but be prepared that the win may not be in the cards this time. My ultimate faith and hope is in God. Trials are given for our benefit. As #14 reminded us on another thread, the people of the resistance in WWII continued fighting underground. Its time to watch those old WWII Nazi movies for strategies and tactics for sharing information and keeping in contact. Hollywood back then was on the side of America and freedom. Each of us will a have a part to play, some small and others huge. It depends on your corner of the world. God will guide you and protect you in this spiritual battle for the soul of our nation and the world. MAGA - In God We Trust

Cannot understand why no one, Republic or Democrat, is willing to state that the supporters were infiltrated by Antifa. Am so tired of both sides so eager to call the peaceful supporters, "thugs", "seditionists", "Nazis", etc. Antifa distributed flyers which instructed them to wear MAGA hats, Trump shirts, and carry an American flag. They are the ones who did the window breaking and the damage. Videos show supporters dragging Antifa away from doors and windows of the Capitol. Also, according to one observer on Twitter who was refuting the "Trump incited them" dialog, he said that the Capitol was entered 5 minutes before President Trump began his speech. It is all just so contrived - what is the truth?

What is the appropriate response to the theft of a national election and the desecration of our country’s democracy, Reverend? If you view the march on the Capitol by a betrayed people as the modern equivalent of overturning tables in the Temple, can you deal with it a little more empathetically?

For the past year, defenders of the FBI have consistently downplayed the significance of an FBI staff lawyer falsifying evidence in the government’s investigation into Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia. They argue Kevin Clinesmith’s crime of altering a CIA document to obscure the fact that former Trump campaign aide Carter Page worked for U.S., not Russian, intelligence was a rare lapse in judgment by an overworked bureaucrat.(Snip)But such explanations are challenged by new revelations from court papers filed in the case, which some civil libertarians call the most egregious violation and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) since it was enacted more than 40 years ago.

The Supreme Court on Monday brought an end to lawsuits over whether Donald Trump illegally profited off his presidency. The justices threw out Trump’s challenge to lower court rulings that had allowed lawsuits to go forward alleging that he violated the Constitution’s emoluments clause by accepting payments from foreign and domestic officials who stay at the Trump International Hotel and patronize other businesses owned by the former president and his family. The high court also ordered the lower-court rulings thrown out as well and directed appeals courts in New York and Richmond, Va., to dismiss the suits as moot now that Trump is no longer in office.

Two face masks are better than one, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday. The infectious diseases specialist that double-masking is a logical way to curb the spread of the coronavirus. “If you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective,” Fauci said on the “Today” show. The White House advisor explained that the face coverings prevent respiratory droplets—and the virus—from spreading to other people, as well as protecting the wearer. Other experts also say that wearing a surgical mask underneath a cloth face covering provides more protection.

Over the past few months, as conspiracy theories have circulated regarding the election results and President Joe Biden’s inauguration, social platforms have struggled to keep up with the onslaught of misinformation. Much of these false narratives have been driven by believers of the QAnon conspiracy theory, the baseless idea that President Trump is lying in wait to expose a secret cabal of Democrats engaged in a child sex-trafficking ring. Inauguration Day was supposed to mark the “storm,” or the day of reckoning when Trump would arrest all of his enemies and send them to Guantanamo Bay; when the storm never arrived, many QAnon believers were left angry and confused.
