Her statement would be a whole lot better if she looked at the time line and realized the people that breached the Capitol were not the folks at his rally.
"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."

Rf is certainly no genius despite his claims, but he is also not stupid. He knows exactly what the difference is and that folks is simply more evidence of his dishonesty.
Lyin' Randy strikes again.
Irish, I got banned for putting mitch in his place much like you're trying to do here. I'm sure they wouldn't have a double standard on that here...
Irish is a bit more subtle in his approach. You were more like an angry caveman, who eventually devolved into a complete psycho troll.

NYT: "McConnell has told associates he believes President Trump has committed impeachable offenses and to be pleased democrats are moving to impeach him."
All these antifa double agents coming out of the woodwork. Crazy huh?
"The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President."
"The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not."
"There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,"

Anything but acknowledging the elephant in the room.

To the people complaining about social media censorship....
Were brought to the Capitol. The fact that all these weapons did not get inside the Capitol building or used is beside the point.
Social media was used to get the message out and assemble all these people.
We had Trump calling his VP a coward which instantly put a target on his back, Cruz sending out messages he was "leading the charge", and Giuliani wanting "trial by combat". The cherry on top of this shit sundae is the fundraising taking place simultaneously.
Five people died.
I don't believe there's a single person in the world not smart enough to know why these people are being shut down and censored.
Bad faith arguments and faux outrage are being pushed everywhere to deflect, distract, and change the narrative into just another round of standard, run of the mill red/blue trench warfare.
This is serious shit that could've plunged this country into a nightmare but thanks to clown world, an issue that should've easily united everyone must be used to divide.
Only thing that shows there's even a shred of hope for this country is that the polls show that a majority were sickened by this and want him gone.
Staying on point.
This all day long.

Cohen is cooperating with officials.
Something is going down....
Fuck it...I'm calling it now....
Trump resigns by Monday.
Pence isn't going to take part in the 25th. That's pretty clear.
That means they'll have impeachment drawn up and ready to go next week. I'm no lawyer, but I'd guess that by resigning he may have more of a legal hedge (if he then gets pardoned after resigning for example.) Although not sure how any of that would work. I do not see Trump resigning at all, unless it saves his ass. Or at the very least lowers the severity of the shit storm he has waiting for him post presidency.
Edit: I'm not aware of any new cooperation from Cohen, but he's been working with SDNY for a long time now in their case against trump. It would be worth it to go back and watch his testimony before he went to jail. I'd be curious to see how much of it came to fruition.

Well James I guess he tased himself in his nuts and then had a heart attack. Hard to believe a guy like this would do something so stupid. I mean just look at him, seems totally normal.

Some of the stuff that has come out today is truly scary and frightening. We were real close to a massacre. Some of these traitors had zipties and, molotov cocktails and rifles.
Indeed. I hope they keep arresting these mofos. It could have been much worse.

This virus mutation is gonna burn through our lazy population, it's scary to think about.
The 'doubling rate' is also scary. Right now I think it's about 6 weeks, and its at 3,000 a day. So by the end of February it could be 6,000 a day. Where it gets scary is in early April, the tail end of winter, could then be 12,000 a day?
I think over 4,000 people died yesterday. That's truly frightening and exponential growth is something to contend with.
I know and ICU nurse who is younger (24) who had the Pfizer vaccine with no side effects. A physician I know who is in her 50s, just got her Moderna shot with zero issues as well.
We need a WW2 effort to expedite this vaccine out into our country. This was something trump was unwilling or simply unable to do. I trust that Biden (or frankly any person with his experience regardless of political affiliation) will be able to get this ramped up within the first quarter of the year and hopefully fully running by the summer/fall. We have the infrastructure and money to do this on a mass scale, we simply need leadership. There is no way in hell trump's chaotic administration could address this. In the meantime it's going to be dire and only get worse until we're there.
