Irony is strong in the force today.
Your double standards, rather. After all, the violent BLM riots were perfectly fine according to you, 3 per day on average as I recall.

Yeah, this is insane. Only a few minutes into the session and already one state's electoral votes have been objected. I felt like throwing up when all the Republicans stood up to celebrate it. You could tell that Paul Gosar was nervous as hell when he voiced his objection. Probably a reflection of his subconscious -- knowing that he doesn't have anything to back it up with. I guess Trump called Pence minutes prior to the session to once again pressure him. I'm sure he's done the same with every member of the GOP in the House and Senate.

It's just absolutely sickening.
They are nervous because they know beyond any reasonable doubt that what they are doing is wrong and that it's all going to come back to haunt them. Every cowardly thing they do in their efforts to appease a tyrannical maniac and subvert democracy will ultimately become a matter of record.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Some signs of bravery by GOP leaders

As already posted, Pence;
Quote:
Vice President Pence on Wednesday told Congress he will not block the certification of the Electoral College vote, likely removing the last obstacle to Joe Biden being certified the winner of the November presidential election.

"It is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not," Pence wrote.
& McConnell
Quote:
McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, said that the allegations of fraud didn’t reach the standard for challenging the election results and warned of dramatic consequences if the effort were successful.

“If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral. We’d never see the whole nation accept the election again,” McConnell said.

Ignoring the facts again.

3 protests per day, not riots

93% of Black Lives Matter Protests Have Been Peaceful.

He's not ignoring the facts, he just doesn't seem to be able to understand them correctly.

Trump is almost out and Democrats look like they will control the senate... clearly all of the prayers have worked.

Flipping seditious b*stards. Trump needs to get off his selfish ass and try to calm down his lunatics.

As crazy as this is, it might be an eye-opener for many real conservatives that Trumpism is a cancer.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Quote:
As his supporters storm into the US Capitol in quickly-escalating protests, Donald Trump has broken his silence and tweeted for demonstrators to "support Capitol Police and Law Enforcement".

"They are truly on the side of our country," he wrote. "Stay peaceful!"

US media report that tear gas has now been used inside the Capitol building as a growing number of demonstrators enter the building.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered a citywide curfew beginning at 1800 EST.
It really has become a third world country.

Banana republic, in four years Trump has ruined the US - Putin must be very proud.

Edit: Pence removed from the Capitol by the forces of law and order to protect him from the invasion.
So is Donny, the "law and order" President, condemning these invaders?

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

seems they made it all the way to the Speaker's chair.


this isn't banana republic territory, when this happens in those places normally ends up with a president on exile....

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I don't get it - this is the country that can send 1000 marines to the other part of the world within 30 min, but can't send 500 policemen to Capitol Hill which should have been protected heavily on the first place?

This is bad from any ANY angle and even if one is a Trump supporter, this should be a massive sign: he should be in jail for not even attempting to stop it.
