    "I'm running against the single worst candidate in the history of American presidential politics and you know what that does? That puts more pressure on me. Can you imagine if you lose to a guy like this?" (October 2020, D Trump the worst president in American history)

    The Christian right will have to search in even deeper, darker, filthier places to find their next false prophet.

    This Banana Republic Demagogue helped the Christian right quench their thirst for public corruption and brought their xenophobic views out of the darkness and into the mainstream,,. They came out of the closet to endorse this filth in plain sight and in great numbers, they love it and cant get enough of it,,. They will forever be indebted to this bazar actor hustler for their evolution,,!!

    Even now Trump continues his destruction campaign everywhere he can w/ the list of abhorrent pardons to undoing every good thing done by Obama, sowing division and doubt wherever he can. I just read another Letter to the Editor from someone claiming we don't have 'free and fair elections'. Here's one I wrote and may have posted here previously:

    The Russian Trojan Horse

    Once upon a time a minority in a country that was the envy of the world elected a Russian Trojan Horse, posing as a masterful businessman and Christian, to become King. The minority was comprised of smaller groups, each with its own needs, and the Trojan Horse understood well how to exploit their various vulnerabilities. He surmised, “I’ll sow division, and use Double Speak to trick the people into believing I’m here to make the country Great Again. While they are busily quarreling amongst themselves I’ll destroy their environmental protections responsible for clean air and water, spawn lasting distrust amongst their oldest international allies, declare climate change is a Chinese hoax and will make coal, the dirtiest fuel of all, their fuel of choice. And best of all,” he said, “I’ll destroy their economy slowly, without them realizing what’s happening. I’ll start by giving the richest in the land a giant tax break.” Next, he said, “I’ll start a big trade war by levying tariffs that the commoners will pay for because,” he laughed, “They believe anything I tell them! They think I’m God!”

    The Christian Right must be understood for what drives them. Here is another LttE I wrote that captures the jist of how I see it:

    Will Having Babies be Sufficient?

    In her letter on Sept 21, 2020 Ruth Ruhl-LaMusga states, ““Having babies” ensures the continuity of the “human race.” Back in the day according to Judeo-Christian lore the human race started with Adam and Eve. The two were encouraged to “be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.” By 1920 human population was 1.9 billion. Just one long human lifespan later that number is 7.8 billion. With this meteoric rise in population came the relentless destruction of habitat, widespread environmental degradation, increasing dependency on industrial agriculture w/ its reliance on herbicides and pesticides, and ever-burgeoning competition for resources as more clamor for the western consumer lifestyle, accelerating all of the above processes ad infinitum, at least until collapse ensues.

    A core concept of Christianity is that ever since the so-called Fall of Man, the entire natural world became corrupt. Saving the planet, we might roughly translate as supporting policies aimed at protecting the environment, sustainable agriculture, and so forth is simply not on their radar. What matters is saving souls, and then going to Heaven to hang with JC forever. So no, “having babies” will paradoxically accelerate the coming undoing. But even here, sadly, this is even welcomed by some because it portends an End Times. This is why you don’t want people who think like this in positions of power or policy-making as they’re living in a very different world than the real one their children will inherit.

    Although Trump failed at everything from building the Wall ("A big, beautiful Wall. Or fence, could be a fence, or wall, but fence is ok, too. Right? Or even a barrier, but we'll build it - I promise!") to managing the coronavirus epidemic ("its just the sniffles, we have it under control") in a spectacularly incompetent display the world has never seen before, he will still need to look for a job after 20th January.

    Maybe..

    Trump tries to rig the election after the, umm, election is over.

    "The people of Georgia are angry, the people in the country are angry," Trump said, according to one audio excerpt published online by the Post. "And there's nothing wrong with saying, you know, um, that you've recalculated."

    "So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state," Trump said in the recording, insisting that there was "no way" he lost the state.
    (Associated Press, Jan 2021.)


    Maybe Donald Trump should have called all fifty governors before the election and told them to 'find' enough votes to beat Biden. That would have block any vote rigging by the Dems, eh?


    D Trump, easily the worst, the weakest, the most corrupt and incompetent clown to ever hold the office of POTUS. Still making America the laughing stock of the world in the last weeks of his term. MAGA indeed.

    Its not only Trump,,,, its the Dum-asses that keep supporting and voting for this corruption in plain site,,. Why anyone would ever want to associate them selves with this ridiculous excuse for an American is beyond reason, to think they had this guy impeached in Feb and them left him in office,,. The voter's have one last chance on the 5th to start putting this behind them,,.

    The world will be in a far better place On Jan 20th,,!!

    I tell you all prior pride at being an American is officially over for me. I hope it comes back some day. I knew when Trump was nominated the real sadness were the people who couldn't see what he was from the get go. Lying narcissist con-men come and go but 70M Americans, let's make that americans, voted to put this POS in charge and still support the Russian Trojan Horse to this day. Hillary was right if not PC: 'deplorables' is an apt label. I'd emmigrate to Canada if they'd have me, but those days are over as I'm now retired and don't have $5M to invest

    Not a coincidence?

    U.S. Attorney for North Georgia abruptly resigns due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’

    U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak resigned his position Monday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

    The online news site Talking Points Memo, which first reported Pak’s resignation, said it obtained a memo dated Monday in which Pak said “unforeseen circumstances” were the cause of his departure. TPM reported Pak originally intended to stay with the office until Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. New presidential administrations typically appoint new U.S. attorneys, who must be approved by the Senate.

    It’s unclear what those “unforeseen circumstances” might have been. Pak did not return a message seeking comment.
    https://www.ajc.com/news/breaking-us...C4NC5QKWEUKXM/

    In a one-hour phone call on Saturday with Georgia election officials, President Trump insisted he won the state and threatened vague legal consequences if the officials did not act.

    The news media here has mentioned that Trump's threats to Georgia's election official might be a violation of Georgia state law, which could subject him, if convicted, to one year in jail and a $100K fine. My guess is that they would have to stand in line to get a crack at him after January 20.

    And another thought that I have is: I wonder if Trump is going to trash the White House as he is being forced to leave in a couple of weeks? That is something that a lot of home renters and owners do when they are being evicted from their homes due to not paying their rent or mortgage. Now that would make for some great and endearing photos on the internet and the front pages of the world's newspapers. Even his followers might not appreciate that move by Trump.

    Rumor is that the Republicans are going to have a crap in in the Oval Office on Trump's last day. This is made more offensive because Mitch Mcconnell looks like he hasn't taken a solid crap in 20 years.

    Its not funny anymore,,!!

    Protesters storm U.S. Capitol building during certification of Biden win

    U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence was pulled from the House Chamber floor as protesters supporting U.S. President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday.
    Video emerged showing protesters inside the building being escorted by security as the Capitol building entered a lockdown.

    The protests interrupted Congress as Republican lawmakers mounted their first official challenge to the certification of Joe Biden’s presidential election win, objecting to state results from Arizona as they took up Trump’s relentless effort to overturn the election results in an extraordinary joint session of Congress.

    Earlier, Trump had urged the massive crowd of protesters to march towards the Capitol, vowing he would “never concede” to Biden.

    This is a perfect finale for the entire Trumpian movement and what it really means, for all in plain sight to see. It won't end well for them even those who couldn't figure it out will start to finally realize they've signed on to a truly heinous agenda. The supreme irony is they associate themselves w/ "patriotism". Evil to the core!

    Like a scene out of Gotham City where the authorities are so naďve and inept that it confounds reason how this could have even happened,,. Turns out they required Trump himself to authorize the use of the National Guard that are mounting a response many hours after the breach,,. Its unclear if they will even arrest anyone,,!!

    I wonder how proud those Republican Senators are that elected to leave Trump in office after impeachment,,. The Party people & Networks that have repeatedly enabled this guy must be proud of their America, they got their moneys worth today,,!!

    Just 14 more days to go,,!!

    What I just heard on the radio is that Trump has done nothing in response to the riot. It was Pence that authorized the use of the National Guard and other federal resources to bring the situation under control. I only hope that everyone that mobbed the Capital can be arrested, convicted, fined and spend time in jail. However, if that was to happen, I could just see Trump pardoning all of those "protestors". BTW, why does the media cause them "protestors" and not rioters?

    This fiasco is nearly over, what an embarrassment for the US! Lets hope that people see sense and shun anyone associated with Trump AND his nepotic family

    I have to pick up a point made by one commentator on CNN when he stated that the US had the oldest democracy in the world - eh?? Another lie!

    Surely any nation can only call itself a democracy when it enacts full adult universal suffrage, by that measure the US became a democracy in 1965. May come as a surprise but the self governing British colony of New Zealand in 1893 became the first place to give a vote to all adults regardless of gender, race or social standing, Britain would lag behind (1928). Democracy is nowhere as old as you may think and far more fragile than it should be.

    No one of us could imagine something like that, in USA, but things like this happens all around the world; in Italy we had an attempted coup d'état in '70, and no one of you english speaking people remember

    I'm happy to stand corrected. I suspect democracy to one group could still be considered oppression by another.

    Trump owns this conspiracy,,. It defies logic how some the most advanced Intelligence and Security departments in the world ushered this Insurrection in and out of what should have been one of the most secure targets in the country with barely an arrest,,. They are now asking for public assistance in locating some of the well known organizers who were allowed to waltz in and out of DC in plain site,,. The Media located them in hours, was this just a comic scene out of the latest issue of the Keystone Cops or was there something more to it,!!

    Capitol Rioters Planned for Weeks in Plain Sight. The Police Weren’t Ready.
    Insurrectionists made no effort to hide their intentions, but law enforcement protecting Congress was caught flat-footed.


    The invasion of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday was stoked in plain sight. For weeks, the far-right supporters of President Donald Trump railed on social media that the election had been stolen. They openly discussed the idea of violent protest on the day Congress met to certify the result.

    “We came up with the idea to occupy just outside the CAPITOL on Jan 6th,” leaders of the Stop the Steal movement wrote on Dec. 23. They called their Wednesday demonstration the Wild Protest, a name taken from a tweet by Trump that encouraged his supporters to take their grievances to the streets of Washington. “Will be wild,” the president tweeted.

    Ali Alexander, the founder of the movement, encouraged people to bring tents and sleeping bags and avoid wearing masks for the event. “If D.C. escalates… so do we,” Alexander wrote on Parler last week — one of scores of social media posts welcoming violence that were reviewed by ProPublica in the weeks leading up to Wednesday’s attack on the capitol.

    Thousands of people heeded that call.

    For reasons that remained unclear Wednesday night, the law enforcement authorities charged with protecting the nation’s entire legislative branch — nearly all of the 535 members of Congress gathered in a joint session, along with Vice President Mike Pence — were ill-prepared to contain the forces massed against them.

    On Wednesday afternoon, a thin line of U.S. Capitol Police, with only a few riot shields between them and a knot of angry protesters, engaged in hand-to-hand combat with rioters on the steps of the West Front. They struggled with a flimsy set of barricades as a mob in helmets and bulletproof vests pushed its way toward the Capitol entrance. Videos showed officers stepping aside, and sometimes taking selfies, as if to usher Trump’s supporters into the building they were supposed to guard.

    A former Capitol policeman well-versed in his agency’s procedures was mystified by the scene he watched unfold on live television. Larry Schaefer, a 34-year Capitol Police veteran who retired in December 2019, said his former colleagues were experienced in dealing with aggressive crowds.

    “It’s not a spur-of-the-moment demonstration that just popped up,” Schaefer said. “We have a planned, known demonstration that has a propensity for violence in the past and threats to carry weapons — why would you not prepare yourself as we have done in the past?”

    And it's fragile precisely because of how easily duped the sheeples are who follow populist cult leaders like Trump.

    Rachel Maddow describes how Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer, locked down as pro-Trump rioters marauded through the U.S. Capitol, called Maryland Governor Larry Hogan for National Guard support, and how that support was held up from being authorized for an hour and a half as the Trump administration remained unresponsive.

These people have proven wretched judgement and should never see any role in government again. Remember this, true American Patriots!

    The best thing for the American public and the Republican Party would be to impeach Trump and to ban him from ever holding another public office.

    What Trump and Giuliani were doing as the carnage and bodies were being counted,,.

    Seems this Tommy Tuberville is a handy guy but hard to get a hold of,,. In the midst of the Capitol siege, Trump tried calling Tommy Tuberville but got the wrong senator. Later while Congress was still cowering in the basement Rudy Giuliani left a long and rambling message for Tuberville — on a different lawmaker's voicemail.

    https://thedispatch.com/p/giuliani-t...y-to-just-slow

    https://www.mercurynews.com/2021/01/...elay-the-vote/

    During the Capitol siege, President Donald Trump attempted to reach Tuberville but got Sen. Mike Lee of Utah who happened to be hunkering down near Tuberville in the Senate chamber of the US Capitol that was under siege by a pro-Trump mob.

    Lee said he then asked Tuberville for his phone back.

    "I don't want to interrupt your call with the president, but we're being evacuated and I need my phone," he recalled saying.

    Hours later President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani left a long, rambling, and rather revealing voicemail that was meant for Tuberville but instead was sent to a different, unnamed politician. The voicemail, which urged Tuberville to slow down the Electoral College vote certification as much as possible, was sent to The Dispatch and transcribed in full.

    Tuberville was one of several Republican senators - including Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas - who voted to overturn election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Those efforts failed, and after Congress reconvened following the siege it certified Joe Biden as president-elect.

    In December, Tuberville received praise from Trump after he said he would not rule out objecting to the election results during the Electoral College certification process.

    Following the siege of the Capitol, Tuberville tweeted condemnation of the mob of Trump supporters.

    To be clear and fair, not all Republicans followed this charletan into the toilet. To those we thank for not selling out to peer pressure and calling a spade a spade. Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Colin Powell and a few others are credits to their party. But so many others went right down the rabbit hole and for those we will try very hard not to forget. We'll see how many continue to associate themselves w/ Trump going forward, though Trump may find himself headed for incarceration at some point, though I can't see him as a martyr in prison. More likely he will flee the country and take he and whatever family still subscribes to his legacy with him to Russia. Melania will probably divorce him shortly.

    Latest conspiracy theory is that italian president Mattarella is a MI6 secret agent, conspiring against USA, sounds strange, as far as I know, Mattarella, Obama, Clinton and Royal family are all reptilians

    Will our blow-up VP redeem himself by supporting the 25th Amendment? Don't hold your breath as he will quickly deflate into the 2-dimensional syrupy fake Christian he apparently is. He could redeem himself, this is about the last op.

    Not a chance, Noel. Pence would be committing political suicide. Besides using the 25th Amendment wouldn't permanently get rid of Trump. I want to see Impeachment with the proviso that Trump never hold another public office. That is the only way we can get rid of the guy so that he doesn't return in 2024. It would also be nice if he was convicted by various states for just about every crime you can think of, but knowing him he would find some way to stay out of jail until he finally dies off.

    Absolutely on impeachment which will happen now thanks to better-late-than-never Mitch and finally other republicans, or after the inauguration. I'd still like to see the lying con-man taken out of office before the 20th quite frankly. He could always resign but golly gee then he's a quitter, and we know how much he dislikes quitters and losers.

    The "Trump Era" has teased out for all to see who is willing to trash the entire country, throw out democracy, all under the pathetic banner of undying loyalty to the dictator/cult leader, and this guy was especially awful, not just a dictator-wannabe. And in-your-face evidence of what a total charade this administration has been, or more aptly a targeted destruction campaign now finally culminating in this wretched assault on the federal government w/ this vigilante mob driven by a complete load of crap about their country being taken away, and this (US Capitol) was 'their house', confederate banners, ad nauseum. It seems to me many of these people are gun fetishists itching for a reason to express their rage using firearms under the spurious misuse of the real intent of the 2nd Amendment. They have the same mindset as Hitler's Brown Shirts. And the giant irony is just how LITTLE this admin did for these folks. My sense is the people who do this stuff are indeed just like Trump: uneducated, follow conspiracies and a different set of facts than actual, and are essentially anti-social. Good riddance to Trump and Best Wishes to the Republican Party in its attempt to disassocated themselves w/ the Trump Brand, now tarnished beyond repair, as it should have been on Day 1.

    "Absolutely on impeachment which will happen now thanks to better-late-than-never Mitch and finally other republicans, or after the inauguration."
    Sounds good but I don't think you can count on any of those republican's to do the right thing,,.

    Case in point? Salamander Lindsey Graham Travels With Trump To Texas A Week After Renouncing Him

    TOPLINE Just one week after declaring he is “out” with President Donald Trump over his efforts to overturn the election, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) flew with the president on Air Force One for a trip to Alamo, Texas on Tuesday.

    “Trump and I, we’ve had a hell of a journey. I hate it to end this way,” Graham, typically one of Trump’s closest allies in the Senate, said in a speech announcing his vote to affirm President-elect Joe Biden’s win during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6.

    Graham’s speech was delivered in the aftermath of a brutal assault on the U.S. Capitol by Trump’s supporters attempting to overturn the election, which forced lawmakers to pause the counting of electoral votes and go into lockdown.

    Graham said he “prayed” Biden would lose but doesn’t buy Trump’s claims of a stolen election, declaring, “All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough… We’ve got to end it.”

    But Graham hasn’t entirely abandoned his support of Trump: he has spoken out against efforts by Democrats to remove Trump from office in the wake of the Capitol attack.

    Forbes has reached out to the White House and Graham’s office for comment.

    CRUCIAL QUOTE
    “I don’t support invoking the 25th Amendment now. If something else happens, all options would be on the table,” Graham said of efforts to remove Trump.

    CHIEF CRITIC
    “I think poor Lindsey really is sort of bereft of friends at this point. He found out that the Trump people will turn on you, that Donald Trump, of course, will turn on you. Because he turns on everybody,” former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) said in an MSNBC appearance. “I think Lindsey should take that old advice: ‘if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.’”

    TANGENT
    Trump and Graham are joined on the trip – meant to mark the completion of 400 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border wall – by White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino, White House adviser Brooke Rollins and U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan, according to Wall Street Journal reporter Gordon Lubold.
