Trump Impeached

I see that in my absence that the rabidly vitriolic, vengeful, and venomous Speaker Pelosi and her cohort of malcontents have impeached Trump again for something that he didn’t do. So… not much has changed.

Mr Trump is accused of inciting a mob that stormed Congress last week after he repeated false claims of election fraud. Five people died.

The trial will be held after the president leaves office next Wednesday.

If Mr Trump is convicted, senators could also vote to bar him from ever holding public office again.

The trial follows Wednesday’s vote in the House of Representatives that formally charged – or impeached – the president with “incitement of insurrection” for his role in the riot.

The Republican president has rejected responsibility for the violence. In a video released by the White House after the vote, he called on his supporters to remain peaceful, without mentioning his impeachment.

Notice how the BBC refuses to use his title? They use the titles of other people in the story.

Anyway, the storming of the capitol building has all of the hallmarks of a crowd whereby a contingent turned into a mob and did what mobs do. There was no planning and no actual effort to overthrow a government. It was contemptible, harmful to the body politic and the Trump cause, and, ultimately fruitless… but I understand it. I also understand that many of these same Democrats cheered when mobs sacked the Wisconsin Capitol for weeks after Act 10. I understand that these same Democrats protected Antifa and BLM when they looted private businesses, government buildings, and set up rebellious zones within cities. Their attack on Trump and conservatives is steeped of the zealotry of hypocrisy.

But we need to pull the lens back a bit. What happened in Washington and around the country is part of a bigger picture. We have a fractured America in which some want to continue in a relatively liberal and free Republic and some want a Marxist Regime. And there is a great swath of people in the middle who just want to go to work and be left alone. Politics are always an amplified projection of our culture. It’s not our politics that is broken. It is our culture.

    It is not even ironic that all the BLM riots actually were planned/expected to end in violence, it is just disgusting. They were organized by people on the Dem payroll who should ultimately be held responsible because it was part of the plan in the first place, We’ve seen movies and shows where the bad guys not only get away with a specific crime, but they get that charge put onto the good guy. As the viewer you think, “That is not even possible, stupid plot…” They rarely get away with it in the long run because good guys win on the screen, but you’ll see it play out in real life now that Dems own the House and Senate, and they will get away with it. Riots have been part of every Dem election plan since the 60s, but a Republican will be the first to get penalized for it.

    They may suck at representing the masses too, but Dems do know how to plow sh*t and still keep their clothes clean.

    The dumbass liberals have destroyed another thing.
    By making impeachment political, impeachment is now desensitized and doesn’t matter now.
    And this was a temper tantrum by the crybaby liberals and a few RINOs that will go nowhere.
    Such stupidity.

    By the liberal standards now, Senile Joe can be impeached for being a racist and future president Harris will go down for sedition, treason and inciting violence.
    You reap what you sow.

    There was no planning

    Certainly not by the vast majority of those who got into the building, but there are reports that SOME–false-flaggers–had a plan, indeed.

    As to Pelosi: you are far too kind.

    some want a Marxist Regime

    For the time being, it’s a Fascist construct, as the corporations are on board.

    If the corporations get eaten, then it will be Marxist.

    “By the liberal standards now, Senile Joe can be impeached for being a racist…”

    No way, Republicans have no experience (or majorities in Congress) in racist law or PC culture. A conservative calling any liberal racist is no more audible than cow farts in the city. And even I am not cynical enough to believe they will eat their own President on a racist charge. Now senility is already believed by half the people and can be used to remove Joe whenever they want. It will be the humane caring way to do it.
    My scary unprecedented prediction is that Joe Biden WILL be removed from office for health issues before he dies and before his first 4 years are up.

    Except that none of those three groups invaded the Capitol building last week. Rather, it was a group egged on by their god-king with the intent to, at a minimum, physically threaten a duly-elected co-equal branch of government while they were doing their Constitutional duty into abdicating said duty and re-installing said god-king.

    Wow.
    How long have you been this delusional?

    It’s all Calvinball for the foreseeable future so you’d might as well memorize the rule book and get comfortable with it.

    Steve, that was a very good impression of AOC.
    What other impressions do you do? Pelosi? Omar? Shift? Nadler?

    “… the rabidly vitriolic, vengeful, and venomous President trump and his cohort of malcontents…

    Fixed it for you.

    I could include the comments made by trump et al in prelude to the attempted insurrection, but I’m sure you have all seen/heard/read the calls for treason and sedition by the likes of trump, brooks, hawley, even our own pet sycophant toxic tom tiffany.

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    “By making impeachment political”. Geez, where have you been since the 1990’s?

  13. Mar

    Oh, gee, the sociopath popped up from his septic tank.
    Full of hatred and lies.
    And no, you were not missed, dumbass.

  14. steveegg

    Well excuse me if I see a naked wannabe emperor and a cult that sees said naked emperor as a god-king for what they are – the same ilk that invaded the state Capitol in 2011 and rioted all over the country last summer.

  15. Mar

    Umm, Steve, what the hell are you talking about?

  16. Kevin Scheunemann

    Correct. It is the culture that is broken.

    Thanks to radival Democrats there are no common, objective values that hold us together.

    Science of Biologic sex has been rejected.
    USA as a good thing has been utterly rejected by Democrats.
    The idea that one has to show bad racist action before being accused of being racist is out the window.
    Basic decency has been thrown out the window by Democrats.

    It will be difficult to repair the culture because many Democrats don’t view these items as being wrong. According to the radicals of their party, wr are all racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobes, part of a disgusting transphobic American experiment and we are individually guilty without evidence, with no chance for redemption or grace.

    Nord cheers all that nonsense is the worst part. He is typical liberal. “Nothing to see here” rather than helping to fix the culture his ilk broke.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    k:

    Using your extensive education, peer reviewed research, and experience, explain your definition of “ Science of Biologic sex”.

    Use facts, not religion or ideology. Thanks

  18. dad29

    Apparently the only channel Steve gets is CNN.

    Don’t be shy, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy. Show us EXACTLY the language Trump used to “incite insurrection.” By your own testimony you have it handy.

    We’ll wait.

  19. dad29

    Biological sex is defined in EVERY biology textbook.

    Mental illness, a condition found in Democrats, is defined in the DSM.

    Buy a book, LeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy. You’re not finishing concrete today, are you?

  20. Mar

    Like the sociopath ever used “facts”.

  21. Le Roi du Nord

    Try again , dad. Or didn’t you read k’s claim?
