A question about section 3 of the 14th Amendment

Wikipedia : Amendment XIV -Section 3 :

Section 3 Disqualification from Holding Office

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. (emphases are mine) But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. (not likely to happen)

But, isn’t this exactly what trump is doing when he promises to pardon the folks involved in the insurrection? Not only did he foment the insurrection itself by lying to and inciting his minions, to give aid and/or comfort to the “enemies thereof” - IMHO, both of these examples show reasons why the disgraced ex-president should be kept off the ballot in November 2024.

Clearly Margie Traitor Greene & RW "commentator", Charlie Kirk

have a lot to say about people and things they clearly know little about. All these maga-morons spew their ignorant ugliness as if anything they have to say is true or meaningful.

No way did Pagans, or so-called Witches gather around political commentator, Charlie Kirk to 'hex' him while he was speaking at Legacy Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, .. even though he said he got "super sick" after the encounter.


That's just plain not true- another maga LIE.

Clearly Charlie Kirk and others of his ilk (read the comatose ignorant) know nothing about New Mexico, or Pagans.

The Wiccan rede, followed by all is: "An it harm NONE, do what ye will"

NONE means NONE.. Who wants all the negative karma of a so-called 'hurtful hex' to come racing back to mire themselves in darkness of their own making? Not even idiots like MTG and Charlie, who provide their own karmic experience via hatred, ignorance and lies, require a so-called "hex" from anyone. Their mean spirited ignorance is more than just 'chilling' it is truly harmful and will definitely come back to bite them.

(wasn't sure where to put this, if it's in the wrong place, please let me know and I will change it.) 🕊

Thank you, Thank you Again!

(I think I posted this heart-felt thank you on the wrong forum)

"Love is in the air, Magic is afoot" "Love lift us up where we belong'" 🎶 {to coin a phrase or two by Buffy Sainte-Marie}

I feel like a kid in school getting Valentines for the first time! 🥰

You opened my heart even more today with your generosity.

Thank you again for the hearts🎶

Wow.. thanks for the hearts

I'm so surprised to be included like this, mostly because though I am usually always here reading, I don't post very often and I am not well known.

I so appreciate the kindness extended.. If I had money I would definitely pay back hearts for hearts.. 💙💙💙💙💙

Bless you

The republican lack of respect and extreme hatred for President Biden is depressing

But what's almost worse is their total lack of respect for the office of the President.

Why has this been normalized for republicans? If Democrats acted like these loud-mouthed ill mannered ignoramuses, the outcry from the trump conspirators & collaborators would be even more deafening.

I almost couldn't watch the SOTU because I knew Greene would be spewing her ignorance and hatred, inspiring the other stupidos who follow her

How can people smart enough to run for office and get elected refuse to listen to President Biden or rally around all the good he has accomplished? Maybe their ignorant refusal to hear him or even consider aligning themselves with the truth is actual proof that the disgraced, twice-impeached, lying loser ex-president and his minions did the actual 'stealing' of the elections.

Just wonderin'

Has anyone heard anything about George Clooney's Jim Jordan movie? Wasn't it supposed to be released in October sometime?

There was a lot of chatter about it a while ago, but lately there is nada.
