On July 27, 2020 then President Trump tweeted "anarchists, agitators, or protesters who vandalize or damage our Federal Courthouse in Portland or any federal buildings in any of our cities or states, will be prosecuted under our recently reenacted Statues and Monuments Act. MINIMUM TEN YEARS IN PRISON."

Do you suppose trump will demand that those who broke into Congress get their 10 years in jail? He probably will pardon them..goombah goombah goombah

"For those of us who continue to believe that society will best be served by a governance that promotes individual enterprise, open markets, capitalism, equal opportunity, and freedom, it definitely has not been a good day."
Why has this not been a good day? Because thugs and mobs gave trump a black eye for doing exactly what he wanted them do? Because trump's championing of those words will make it more difficult for the next wanna-be dictator to use those trigger words to set up the con?

The myriad of desperate problems the world faces are global in nature. Pandemics, the effects of climate change , etc. all require cooperation on a global scale to mitigate. Just think how much faster Covid vaccines might have been created and tested had the global community shared knowledge rather than privatize it in the hopes of making big bucks with a vaccine patent that governments will shell out billions tax dollars to acquire. Cooperation is not communism. It is not a political or economic theory or practice. It is a way to solve problems. Competition does not solve problems, it creates winning and losing sides... and today the trumpanzies are the losers beyond anyone's wildest dreams, led down the path to insurrection by believing in a mad man.

A deluded fool - 9:01 "Just think how much faster Covid vaccines might have been created and tested had the global community shared knowledge rather than privatize it in the hopes of making big bucks with a vaccine patent that governments will shell out billions tax dollars to acquire. Cooperation is not communism."
He says as China continues to openly impede WHO trying to investigate the origin of CV19.
The above statement might have a lot to do with why millions of Americans have absolutely had it with the Dems.
"Cooperation".
Keep it up, fool. Calling all American conservatives foul names and denigrating our Constitutional rights is hardly cooperation.

Barry Pruett

If the riots this summer didn’t bother you or you quietly or overtly thought that they were okay as a means to ends but what happened in Washington yesterday bothers you, please understand that we think that you are an idiot. Violence is never acceptable. We should be able to freely and without intimidation and violence discuss politics. Violence from either side is abhorrent. It you can’t say that, you are part of the problem.

Cooperation? Look to how well the government is handling distribution!

As far as actually manufacturing a vaccine....I'm sure they'll get to it just as soon as they cobble together their Commitment to Diversity plan and write up a mission statement. Say in eleven or twelve years.

Barry Pruett

Further DC Mayor Muriel Bowser should resign. As demonstrated by her lack of effort last summer and yesterday, she is completely incompetent to lead any city.

It's really more Gavin, Andrew and Phils government(s) as this is a state level thing for the most part. Same principle applies though. Andrew "Grandma Killer" Cuomo has threatened providers with million dollar fines if they screw up the vaccine prioritization.So they're going really S L O W L Y. But you're a sharp gal and a model progressive so you probably already knew that! Better people die so as to not violate "equity" huh!

And in two weeks Trumps government will be Bidens government and still be every bit as clumsy and incompetent. I know this scares you and it should but you're going to have to buck up sis!

Provocations from antifa -


According to further reports, Sullivan was arrested during BLM riots in Salt Lake City last year. He was arrested for felony rioting, criminal mischief and threats of violence. Sullivan has also called for attacks on government institutions, which raises many questions in connection to his presence at the Capitol Hill protest.

Hmmmmm -

In several follow-up tweets, Brooks said a congressman warned him on Monday about a growing Antifa threat. This source even advised him to sleep in his office. The congressman then told him, on Tuesday, that he was warned by Capitol Police that ‘fascist Antifa’ was going to infiltrate the Trump rally by dressing like the President’s supporters.

Daily quotes and a meme.

Insight: “The principle that the end justifies the means is in individualist ethics regarded as the denial of all morals. In collectivist ethics it becomes necessarily the supreme rule.” —Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)

Upright: “Teaching black children that they are living in a racist country and that they have no chance without government intervention, without diversity politics, without receiving special treatment because of their race destroys that child’s sense of humanity, personal uniqueness and personal responsibility. We have two competing cultures in America today. One culture says that life is, by nature, hard and that achievement comes from diligence, good character and struggle. The other culture says that life is only hard if it is unfair, and that life can be made fair and easy through politics. The latter is the culture of the left, which damages the very individuals it pretends to help. If we want to build a more perfect union, believe that every person is unique and that what people look like tells you nothing about who they are.” —Star Parker

For the record I: “[Jon Ossoff] is an unusually entitled young man who has never in his entire life … done anything meaningful or impressive, or even had a real job. He has a list of credentials the length of your arm, all of which we are supposed to be impressed by, but not a single actual accomplishment. In a world of shallow politicians, Jon Ossoff is lighter than air. He makes Beto O'Rourke look like Teddy Roosevelt!” —Tucker Carlson (Actually, Ossoff has held a job … answering constituent letters for Representative Hank “Guam Could Capsize” Johnson, the dumbest member of Congress)

For the record II: “In recent days, Rep. Louie Gohmert filed a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Electoral Count Act. His lawsuit sought to give Pence the power to make authoritative rulings. By virtue of filing that lawsuit, Gohmert acknowledged that the vice president currently does not have that power. Two federal courts dismissed the case. Those suggesting that Pence has that power would be agreeing with the notion that four years ago Joe Biden could have rejected the Electoral College votes and declared Hillary Clinton the winner of the 2016 presidential election.” —Gary Bauer

Observations: “I’m going to be interested in seeing how many media accounts say that the protests [Wednesday] were ‘mostly peaceful’ (which is true). I’ve heard only one such characterization. To the contrary, am I the only one who detects a barely concealed glee in the non-stop, furrowed-brow media coverage going on right now? This is not to excuse Trump for blundering, but our garbage media can’t help themselves, and while Trump will be gone two weeks, we’re stuck with these horrible people.” —Steven Hayward

Sobering reality: “President Trump seems determined to leave office in a manner that vindicates the vile accusations hurled at him by his opponents over the past four years. After a speech rehearsing his electoral grievances and calling on his vice president to abrogate his ministerial duty [Wednesday], some of the assembled multitude followed the logic of Trump’s grievances and stormed the Capitol.” —Scott Johnson

And last… “The greatest thing we all have the power to do right now, wherever you are, is to pray for the best outcome for this country.” —Will Witt

Hmmm. Next time send in the social workers. Things that have stuck since the mostly peaceful protest is : a one day unlawful and un-peaceful assembly is not insurrection. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

“They weren’t protesters – don’t dare call them protesters.” “They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.”— Joe Biden.

But, but, but Joe. We were told for months that when witnessing 2,000 cops injured, 2 billion (with a B) dollars worth of damage, with businesses destroyed that will never ever come back....that looting of high end stores and rioting and wanton destruction was as American as Apple Pie. Those bloody protests of 2020 were compared to the Boston Tea Party of 1773. In fact, defenders of the arsonists who attacked the Federal Court Building Point out that America was founded as a protest against England.

We have been told that the rioters across the land were just blowing off steam for being locked down due to C-19. We have even been told by mayor Lori Lightfoot that the reason the already shocking murder rate in Chicago (mostly black men murdered) was due directly to Chicago being locked down and the natives grew restless..and mass gatherings are justified because people need to celebrate while being locked out. Huh?? Anyway, no problems to see here, it’s how Americans have always done things....we where told.

When one of our lefty friends posted immediately after or during the DC protests that we are hypocrites for not condemning the lack of law-n-order (DC breach, un-peaceful assembly) ), my knee jerk reaction is I would love to loudly condemn lawlessness in any form.....but unfortunately after months of condemning the riots and billions of dollars of property damage and MSM giving them a pass and actually covering for just riotous behavior that my voice is quite hoarse and it’s hard to shout, nay, impossible. My voice needs a break aftet 6 straight months of condemning violence by the Dangerous Left.

Here's a reaction to Trumps behavior from an Republican Senator:

During an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt this Friday, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) was asked about his assessment of President Donald Trump's behavior and culpability in the run-up to and after the storming of the U.S. Capitol by a violent mob of Trump supporters on January 6.


"This is a deep brokenness in his soul. ... Donald Trump is a guy who hurts. And I hurt for him at an anthropological and a human level, but at a level of his oath of office to the Constitution, the duty of the president of the United States is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution," Sasse said. "And the President is addicted to social media and to television, and to division, and he's been lying to During an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt this Friday, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) was asked about his assessment of President Donald Trump's behavior and culpability in the run-up to and after the storming of the U.S. Capitol by a violent mob of Trump supporters on January 6. the American people for eight straight weeks and planned it long before. No matter what was happening in any state, he was going to say the election was being stolen, and the people needed to rise up."

Sasse stressed the fact that Trump "said repeatedly to 'go wild' when you get to the Capitol" during a Wednesday morning address to his supporters.

"I think Donald Trump wanted there to be massive divisions, and he was telling people there was a path by which he was going to stay in office after January 20th," he said. "That was never true. And he wanted chaos on television. I don't have any idea what was in his heart about what he wanted to happen once they were in the Capitol, but he wanted there to be chaos, and I'm sure you've also had conversations with other senior White House officials, as I have."

Later in the interview, Sasse claimed that as Trump was watching his supporters storm the Capitol, he "was walking around the White House confused about why other people on his team weren't as excited as he was as you had rioters pushing against Capitol Police trying to get into the building."

"That was happening. He was delighted," the Republican senator said.

'"That's right," Harris replied. "But they're not gonna stop. They're not gonna stop, and this is a movement, I'm telling you."

"They're not gonna stop, and everyone beware, because they're not gonna stop," she added. "They're not gonna stop before Election Day in November, and they're not gonna stop after Election Day."

"Everyone should take note of that, on both levels, that they're not going to let up — and they should not. And we should not," she concluded.'

“Didn't hear you complain about Trump wanting $2000 assistance checks.”

And you complained about $2,000 assistance checks? Look in the mirror lately? Rhetorical question. Go tell all your friends and starving artists on food stamps that you are opposed to $2,000 assistance checks (free money) and see how popular you become among the Progressive Marxists. They lost their jobs at no fault of their own! A lot of people did, millions. I don’t need the White Man’s money or for them to pay for my healthcare or bad choices in life.

Go ahead Punch, tell those buddies of yours that they should give the money back, be it another 600 clams or not. Tell them we need to pay as we go. Sing it loud and proud.

When the Botox Queen was asked what was the most important accomplishment she had after her first term as Madam Speaker, she answered, “Pay Go”. Gotta show how you are going to pay for a program before it passes. Pay as you go. Not a bad way to live life.

I don’t think that the socialists truly understand all of the America patriots in this country. Most of these socialists come from moderately wealthy families and can’t relate to folks that play softball and drink beer with their buddies. They think that they are better than those folks and should be obeyed. They can’t relate to folks that were raised with the rights priorities - God, family, and country. They mock them. They look down on them. They underestimate them as well.

The soft coup of networked power:

Network power > State power

Terms of Service > Bill of Rights

Social AIs replace secret police

Social deplatforming replaces arrest and imprisonment (for dissidents)

Republicans are starting to speak out favoring impeachment. From Breitbart;


Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Donald Trump did commit impeachable acts by inciting the riot on Capitol Hill last week.

Host Jake Tapper said, “Your Republican colleague Senator Murkowski of Alaska says President Trump should resign. She said, quote, ‘He’s caused enough damage.’ Do you agree?

Toomey said, “Yeah, I do. I think at this point, with just a few days left, it’s the best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rearview mirror for us that could happen immediately. I’m not optimistic it will. But I think that would be the best way forward.”

Tapper asked, “Do you think the president should be impeached? Would you vote to remove him from office?”

Toomey said, “I think the president did commit impeachable offenses. There is little doubt in my mind about that. I don’t know. As a practical matter, it is actually possible to do an impeachment in the handful of days that are left. It is likely if the House does pass Articles of Impeachment, we wouldn’t get them until — I don’t know Tuesday or Wednesday. We are less than one week to go at that point. I am also not at all clear that it is constitutionally permissible to impeach someone after they have left office. So there may not be a viable impeachment route at this point. But certainly, he could resign, and that would be a very good outcome.”

He added, “I think there is also a possibility that there is criminal liability here.”
