Original Article

Rep. Jason Crow, Colorado Democrat, said Wednesday that Republican members of Congress are scared they’ll be killed if they vote to impeach President Trump. He said the GOP is “paralyzed with fear.” “I had a lot of conversations with my Republican colleagues last night,” Mr. Crow said on MSNBC. “A couple of them broke down in tears talking to me and saying that they are afraid for their lives if they vote for this impeachment.” “My response was, you know not to be unsympathetic but welcome to the club,” he said. “That’s leadership. Our country is in a very challenging time.”

Wow, scary. When Skateboard Bobby dispatches the police to collect all guns in private hands, we'll all cheer and look forward to safer days ahead, depending on how Pravda frames the narrative.

Nonsense. Yet another article that doesn't name names. Anonymous R have told a D *anything* in tears? And it is about how evil and violent R are, eh? Way to stay on narrative in a way no one can challenge! Bravo!

Rep. Crow just doesn’t understand Republican vernacular. When Republicans say they will be “killed” they mean “politically terminated.” In Democrats speak the equivalent word is “cancelled.” And yes they will!

FTA: "GOP congressmen afraid they'll be killed if they vote to impeach, House Democrat says." Translation: GOP Congresscritters afraid they will be killed if they vote AGAINST impeachment. There. That was easy. Remember, whatever a Demoncrat says is really the opposite.

Actually that democrat has it exactly backwards. The careers of all those republicans who go along with this festering democrat coup will be what dies. Republicans don't go around killing people, democrats however do. Last one that did that was the Berniebot who nearly took out a practice field of republicans a couple years or so ago.

Gives new meaning to Fake News. PDJT, in all his greatness, probably didn’t foresee this level of lying. Watch for media rubes to spout the same drivel. They may be getting a bit more sophisticated and editing their refined talking points so they are not parroting and speaking verbatim. But the intent and level of panic and hatred will be the same.

They’re more likely to be killed if they don’t. It’s the left, not the right, who are known for murdering their opposition. If an example is needed just look into the 100 million deaths of the 20th century which occurred in socialist/communist countries.

Let's look at the rhetoric since this time last week: 1. "A mob of insurrectionists invaded the Capitol." - all MSM outlets 2. "We came close to half of the House nearly dying..." - AOC, MSM 3. "4000 'armed patriots' plan to surround Capitol/Congress/White House/DC/etc." - Rep. Conor Lamb, FBI, MSM 4. "Congressmen are afraid they'll be killed if they vote to impeach." - Rep. Crow, MSM This is unadulterated fear-porn worthy of Goebbels. It is being coordinated, along with the lockdowns to ensure that anyone who is a conservative is silenced about the election and the new administration. If you speak up, some Nazi "Karen" will rat you out and you become a domestic terrorist. These are surely the end times... greyseal

Give me a break - our side doesn't do that. We just close our wallets and sit on our hands and not vote. I've changed my voter registration to "unaffiliated," unsubscribed from every electronic Republican newsletter, and intend to respond to all mailings with a request to be removed from their mailing list. I'm done with what Brit Hume (on Tucker Carlson last night) called "real Republicans."

Congresscritters are too scared to be in office, for the most part. All I KNOW is that some key States had OVERVOTES in the 100's of 1000's in the National election, and THAT is a sad fact. That means that 100's of 1000's of votes were cast ABOVE the number of registered voters. How can that occur unless fraud was working it's wily ways ? It cannot, period, and the Supreme Court should be disbanded for not taking up these issues when the States refused to do so.

The Biden Democrat cabal is showing zero signs of someone who has won legitimately. This is a classic case of Left wing projection. They are desperate because they are fearful. They are afraid because they are guilty - and they know it.

Regardless what was or wasn't said, the truth is that NO ONE except brainwashed snowflakes, are afraid of republicans. If they were, they would re-think their push for policies that Republicans find abhorrent. The truth i IS......nearly every elected official is terrified of the leftwing mob and left wing cancel culture. Congress SHOULD be afraid of their constituents. Congress and the federal bureaucracy hasn't been afraid of the voters in decades.

I had personal phone calls with every member of Congress this morning and each of them said this story is false. I also talked to all the dim senators and they told me this writer is known to be a promiscuous liar. When i see how insane the dims are, i have some sympathy with Republicans who have been fearful if getting them riled up. Imagine living in the same house with a violent raving madman, whom you can only hope will remain calm. The events at the capitol were a major major coup for the dims.

Congressional members, Democrat or Republican, that cry because they are afraid of being killed if they vote in a particular way do not have the courage to be in office. No threats have been made, none, against anyone. This is the Republican party votes, not Democrat votes that may result in a 'suicide' assassination as in some of the prior incidents.

First of all, if you're a Scaredy Cat, Mr. Crow, you should not be blabbing to MSNBC. Right there you're giving people in your Party reason to beat the crap out of you! On top of that, you lied. NOBODY is threatening anyone in Congress. We want to see who think voting to Impeach will make them part of the Cool Kids. Then, we will have a letter writing campaign and let them know we plan to primary them at our soonest convenience. So, they had best starting looking for work somewhere other than the U.S. Congress! So, Mr. Wimp, I guess you had grow a pair and say no to Impeachment! Nobody at MSNBC will save your sorry ass if you vote yes!

President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Thursday that there’s almost no such thing as spending too much money right now given the “twin crises” of the coronavirus pandemic and the associated economic fallout. “There’s no time to waste.

Rep.

Ocasio-Cortez's remarks comes as other Democrats have sounded off on the possibility that some GOP members of the Congress abetted the rioters as they stormed the building. Lawmakers were instructed to head for a designated 'extraction point' to seek protection from the chaos, but AOC asserted that that wasn't really an option 'because there were QAnon and white-supremacist sympathizers and, frankly, white-supremacist members of Congress in that extraction point

Cut off from Twitter and other social media platforms, Mr. Trump issued a statement via a White House press release calling attention to his efforts to bring home troops from various theaters of conflict. “United States military troops in Afghanistan are at a 19-year low,” Mr. Trump said. “Likewise, Iraq and Syria are also at the lowest point in many years.

The White House on Wednesday released a 10-page document outlining the Trump administration’s strategy as of 2018 for countering China—stressing the role of India as a new ally in Asia. The document contains few surprises, outlining plans to support allies and boost the economic and counter-espionage efforts of neighboring states. But US cooperation with India features prominently in the assessment. “A strong India, in cooperation with like-minded countries, would act as a counterbalance to China,” it says. “China aims to dissolve US alliances and partnerships in the region. China will exploit vacuums and opportunities created by these diminished bonds.”

President Trump and his supporters were likened to dictators, despots, terrorists, and genocidal maniacs this week by dueling cable news competitors and elected officials. MSNBC viewers watched programming on Wednesday with analogies to the Ba’ath Party under Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, while CNN’s were warned about large amounts of “Nazis” and “Klan” members permeating the Republican Party. The cable news punditry was punctuated by Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California likening Mr. Trump to the terrorist who orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks—Osama bin Laden—during an interview with “PBS NewsHour.”(Snip) CNN’s Don Lemon went rhetorically darker by bringing up the Third Reich.

The practice of removing a child’s genitalia—a brutal procedure that has been reported in dozens of countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East—has been banned in the U.S. since 1996.

Mark Lowcock, director general of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs called for the decision to be reversed, saying the cost of food was likely to rise by as much as 400%, way beyond the reach of many aid agencies.

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.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says to stem the spread of COVID-19, all Americans should wear a mask. The New York Times says if one mask works, maybe two will be twice as nice. “Football coaches do it. President-elects do it. Even science-savvy senators do it. As cases of the coronavirus continue to surge on a global scale, some of the nation’s most prominent people have begun to double up on masks — a move that researchers say is increasingly being backed up by data,” the paper writes. (Snip) Of course, there’s a drawback: “We run the risk of making it too hard to breathe.”

New York City is canceling contracts with the Trump Organization, Mayor de Blasio said Wednesday, citing the commander-in-chief’s incitement of the deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol last week. “The President incited a rebellion against the United States government that killed five people and threatened to derail the constitutional transfer of power,” de Blasio said in a statement. “The City of New York will not be associated with those unforgivable acts in any shape, way or form, and we are immediately taking steps to terminate all Trump Organization contracts.” The announcement came as the House of Representatives was set to impeach the president on Wednesday.

Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
