MAGA says, "Let the people decide." The voters, law enforcement and 60+ courts have already decided that they lost.

And having obstructed the peaceful transfer of power, Trump is disabled for future office by the Constitution on its face.

Similar to impeachment, this is not a civil or criminal matter. Trump faces no deprivation of life, liberty or property.

As a disabled aspirational candidate he needs more support (67%) in the House than he received as the incumbent, but ultimately “Insurrection or Rebellion” and “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” are whatever Congress says they are.

The GOP agrees of course, but only with respect to President Biden.

Maybe I’m wrong.

We are guilty, but the ref should pick up the flag because we are great. Trumpian logic.


Aside from the offsides the guards and tackles are way off the ball in the backfield to get an advantage blocking for the pass.

Boebert throws boyfriend under the bus.

“I learned to check party affiliations before you go on a date,” Boebert told the outlet, referring to Gallagher, who co-owns an Aspen bar that hosts drag shows.

Although she alluded to her date’s affiliation as a Democrat, the GOP stalwart said the break-up had nothing to do with the various reports on Gallagher in recent days.

Zelenskyy no longer has any motive to cover for trump during this US visit.

December 2, 2019
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denied again that President Trump used nearly $400 million in military aid as a bargaining chip to pressure him to launch investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine’s role in the 2016 U.S. election.

‘If you are our strategic partner, then you should not block any help. It’s about fairness for me. It’s not about a quid pro quo — it’s just a story in itself.’

Zelensky, in an interview in October, said he was unaware that the military aid was suspended when he spoke to Trump in July. “I had no idea the military aid was held up,” he said at a news conference.

“I did not speak with U.S. President Trump in those terms: You give me this, I give you that,” Zelensky reportedly told the German magazine Der Spiegel in an interview published Monday.

The July 25 phone call between Zelensky and Trump sparked the Trump impeachment inquiry that is underway in the House. Trump, for his part, has called the phone call “perfect” and blasted the Democrats’ impeachment effort as a “witch hunt.”
