    I wonder if the terrorists who attacked the United States last week are going to listen to Trump any longer or if they will ignore his belated and insincere calls for peace and attack again? They say they will. How many of them will have to be arrested or killed before they understand that trump is not the one to lead them out of their nothingness.

    This is why the left is trying to silence conservatives. Because their ideas do not hold water. Their ideas are so flimsy that they are easily shot down with facts and common sense( two things liberals hate…facts and common sense).

      The business world is finally taking responsibility for their public image and they are reigning in the money they previously have given freely to conservatives. They have realized that trumpians are not true conservatives; they are narcissists masquerading as patriots. Their only loyalty is to themselves. The business world thought Mike Pence would temper the craziness in Trump and would be the natural successor to him when he imploded(as they knew he would) but they didn’t expect the rabid devotion that trump has inspired in his followers. Once Pence went against Trump, his star fell into a dark hole. Now, the trumplicans have nothing but a twice-impeached shell.

    What the murderer in chief can’t stand and what is driving him nuts, is the fact that the voters of this country, rejected him. Not the republican party. The vote was not rigged. A huge number of rep. voters either voted for Biden or didn’t vote for a president. This fact is born out by the rep. gains in the house and the re-elections in the senate.

      Now we know why Trump put up EIGHT new walls around the White House. He thought he could stay holed up in there and stay in office while his low-IQ cultists destroyed the system of checks and balances the Constitution created to prevent that. We’re not letting him and them destroy our democratic republic.

        It seems clear Trump was going to stay as long as possible in that office as President. He may not be done trying to stay in office. The next several days if not the next couple weeks could be a wild ride.

The number of Republicans who helped these jackasses vandalize and spread feces in our national hall of laws is disgusting. https://www.oregonlive.com/politics/2021/01/video-clearly-shows-rep-mike-nearman-helping-right-wing-demonstrators-breach-oregon-capitol.html?fbclid=IwAR3t3doRmZJ4InY2HjGgmik-GsV2QFmdTydQprCEzaYLLBD5jl909_vEEGk

    Dominion Voting Systems on Friday filed a defamation lawsuit against lawyer Sidney Powell, demanding more than $1.3 billion in damages for havoc it says Powell has caused by spreading “wild” and “demonstrably false” allegations, including that Dominion played a central role in a fantastical scheme to steal the 2020 election from President Trump.

    Ms Powell is going to be forking cash out of her nose until she’s been dead 100+ years. Unless she can prove any of her wild claims (hello, if there was any it would have been proven in court hearings already!) she’s a goner.

    One of the fatalities from the Trump-incited riot was a guy with a taser in his pocket who was in the process of stealing a portrait of former speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill when he accidentally and repeatedly discharged the taser. He tased himself in the balls so many times he suffered a fatal heart attack. This is the skill level of the Trump cultists, and it’s why the rest of us don’t worry too much when Trumpers masturbate over their silly guns.

    MASON CITY – Commercial Alley will be closed to through traffic between East State Street and South Delaware Avenue (US 65) for approximately two weeks beginning Friday, January 8th. The closure is necessary for the installation of underground private utilities and the replacement of alley pavement. Pedestrian access to all businesses will be maintained along Commercial Alley during the duration of the project.

    The City Engineering Department advises motorists to use 1st Street SE off South Delaware Avenue to assess the parking area.

    Gerrymandering is the only way Rs win.

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-Tex.) states:
    “From a purely partisan perspective, Republican presidential candidates have won the national popular vote only once in the last 32 years,” Roy wrote in his statement. “They have therefore depended on the electoral college for nearly all presidential victories in the last generation. If we perpetuate the notion that Congress may disregard certified electoral votes — based solely on its own assessment that one or more states mishandled the presidential election — we will be delegitimizing the very system that led Donald Trump to victory in 2016, and that could provide the only path to victory in 2024.”

    To make a point, Roy objected to the swearing-in of all members from the six states where Trump falsely claims the vote was rigged. This forced the House to vote on whether the lawmakers who were on the same ballot with the president – and won their races – should be allowed to take the oath. Naturally, Republicans wanted to seat their members from Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The vote was 371 to 2 to say that all of their elections were legitimate.

    “It would confound reason if the presidential results of these states were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped public scrutiny,” Roy said. “Those representatives were elected through the very same systems – with the same ballot procedures, with the same signature validations, with the same broadly applied decisions of executive and judicial branch officials – as were the electors chosen for the president of the United States under the laws of those states.”

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has also emphasized the imperative for Republicans to safeguard the sanctity of the electoral college in opposing Cruz and Co. “Congress would imperil the Electoral College, which gives small states like Arkansas a voice in presidential elections,” he said in a statement. “Democrats could achieve their long-standing goal of eliminating the Electoral College in effect by refusing to count electoral votes in the future for a Republican president-elect.”

    So is tRump & followers attempts to shred the Constitution worth it, Repugnicants? If you think it is, say “Bye bye” to the EC because that is exactly what you’d be saying but supporting tRump’s election folly…

    You might think justice and accountability are the best institutional preservatives, but that’s your non-swamp thinking at work. The real answer is to cover it up and blame you for caring. What this will do is make us hate them even more for their corruption, incompetence, and arrogance. Anger is an energy. Use it.

    They ask God if he’d answer one question.
    “Of course,” God says.
    They ask how the Democrats rigged the election in 2020.
    “It wasn’t rigged,” God replied.

    Senator Tom Cotton has given up on Donald Trump and will not oppose the certification of EC vote this week, saying “The Founders entrusted our elections chiefly to the states—not Congress. They entrusted the election of our president to the people, acting through the Electoral College—not Congress. And they entrusted the adjudication of election disputes to the courts—not Congress.”
