lol ... donny was prez at the time he committed the offense of insurrection. roberts is obligated to preside during a trial in the senate for a sitting prez - but may have the option of not presiding since donny is no longer in office. that means nothing in terms of holding a trial.

whether the senate convicts or not is yet to be seen. the rest of the 'rules' are negotiated & if there are witness' along with video footage of donny's own words AND the words of his pawns CONfirming they were there on donny's orders; then who knows? oh & if there ARE witness' - perhaps they will testify how yer dear leader watched the attempted bloody coup in real time & was giddy as a school girl. that would carry much weight, ray ray.
First off there are no words Trump used that included him telling people to use any kind of violence, to riot, or to break into the Capital. When I ask people to show me this evidence, nobody can point to those exact words or where they were said or written.

This impeachment was a phony as the last one, and now that the commies started this impeachment war, it will last forever. Watch what we do to Biden when we get leadership of the House in 2022. When you have a party that impeaches a President for exercising his first amendment rights, what you really have are anti-American Nazis in charge. We've always known you on the left hated the Constitution, but now it's to the point they're taking action against it

& b4 you start in with donny's 10 yr long client/lawyer relationship .... don't.

donny had him on retainer precisely because they are both crooks & is precisely why they were together for a decade.

The Patriots are ready to go if it don't go the way it is supposed to after Biden Cheat.
I will believe that when I see it,they never arrest these criminal politicians and criminal presidents.
That is true, however I think that once people realize what Biden is doing there is going to be a whole other part of the public that will be waking up. You can see it happening already, even after only a few days.

It's good that the Indians are starting to find out what backstabbers Democrats are. DumBama stopped them from selling cigarettes via mail when he was in charge.

Yeah I heard that they will be offering the covid 19 vaccination for free but instead they will have a hypnotist there with his watch "forget about Trump" and "never vote democrat" " you are a patriot now so take it down and start over again"
If you think the vaccine is totally free you're have another thing coming. It actually will be coming out of you're tax dollars and you're medical insurance. So expect you're taxes to go up and insurance prices for this fraud. You think vaccine companies would give you something for free? :auiqs.jpg: :auiqs.jpg:

I was a joke but if you have insurance then it will pay for most of it. Actually it would be better to give the shot to as many as possible if they want to nip this in the bud. I have not gotten the shot but I can get it and it would cost me nothing.

The pharmaceutical companies will have huge profits from this and will be subsidized by the government.

Where do you think the government gets it's money?

I also want to mention that it is not a vaccine at all. This is an mRNA packaged in a fat envelope, that is delivered to a cell. It is a medical device designed to stimulate the human cell into becoming a pathogen creator. In other words, an experimental biological agent.

But hey, if you like being experimented on, go for it.

No matter what you classify it as, it's finally a solution to this problem. I'm calling today to get the vaccine. It may take a while for them to get to me, but the sooner the better. I've been assured by a family member who worked with this kind of stuff her entire life that it's completely safe, and she highly recommend that I get the vaccine.

The vaccination rate in the US is about a million people a day. 18 million doses have been administered so far, and the CDC reported that 41 million doses have been distributed. As more pharmacies begin to give covid shots, those numbers will increase dramatically.

Leftists Reveal Plans To ‘Deprogram’ Trump Supporters
Leftists Reveal Plans To ‘Deprogram’ Trump Supporters – Def-Con News

When they had no power, the left were insane fascists demanding blood and vengeance but now that their side is in control, they’ve gone completely off the deep end. There is a purge of conservatives going on right now, but it’s just the beginning. The left is literally saying they are going to round up all of the 75 million people who voted for Trump and “deprogram” them.
Def-Con News steers clear of conspiracy theories and hype, but this is the real deal. If you think kicking conservatives off of social media is the last of it, you’re fooling yourself and underestimating the fascist nature of the left.
Here is Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and creator of the NYT’s racist revisionist history scam The 1619 Project, Nikole Hannah-Jones, doing their best to bring 1930’s Germany to 2021 America:
“There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogramed. It’s as if they are members of a cult. The Trumpets cult and they have to be deprogrammed. Do you have any idea on how we start the process, much less complete it?” Robison asked.
Hannah Jones said we can look to history to “stop people” and the first step is “enforcement.”
“There has to be consequences and then, once you get those consequences, people have to take a second look at their actions and be afraid,” replied Jones.
So the plan appears to be to round up millions of white Republicans and punish them so severely that they are afraid to oppose the leftist agenda.
If this plan sounds reminiscent of the Nazis, that because it is and it gets even closer with this Hitler Youth program as reported by another great undercover video from Project Veritas. This is PBS Principal Counsel Michael Beller’s contribution to the “deprogramming” plan:
~Snip~
Hitler would be so proud of these tolerance leftists and their plan to crush dissent and force compliance with their anti-freedom agenda.
They haven’t even seated their puppet, Joe Biden, yet and they are already revealing their sinister plot to round up 75 million Trump voters for deprogramming and punishment as well as confiscating their children to turn them into obedient leftists. Imagine the crazy shit they have planned when they officially take power in 8 days.


Comment:
Now we hear that Democrat Congress are demanding that National Guard personnel ordered to protect them have to be screened for the political motives and leanings.
Will the leaders of our military this to occur?
Perhaps Ptogressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Leftists should call upon the UN to send Chinese troops wearing Blue helmets to protect the President and Congress. Perhaps they will feel safer....
The roundups to the FEMA will soon begin. Will the military be employed to round up their fellow Americans? Like I have always said the coup d' etat and takeover will not be televised. It will be blacked out by the Quisling MSM.
It begins....
They sound like Himmler and Goebbels.

funny that you think you know what us lefty will do ... heres something I'll share ... as for trump supporters, ya just can't fix stupid ... as we all saw we have 70 million stupid people in this country ...
No kidding, we know damn well what you ass-wipes will do. You'll throw tantrums, kicking and screaming, while accomplishing nothing. If you need evidence take a look at all Biden's accomplishments...in 47 fricken years....absolutely nothing, dumbass.
boy Arte you full of right wing shit ... seems you missed these dumb ass
A former longtime U.S. senator from Delaware, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was the primary sponsor of 42 enacted bills or resolutions. These covered topics ranging from the military to steroids, from genocide to flag burning, from 9/11 victims to… Nicolas Copernicus?

Here are seven of the most interesting enacted bills or resolutions for which Biden was the lead Senate sponsor. They include one that was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, and another that was just recently superseded by President Trump.
Banning the burning of the American flag
Even if many find it abhorrent, burning the American flag is nonetheless protected under the First Amendment, the Supreme Court ruled 5–4 in the 1989 case Texas v. Johnson. The Court struck down as unconstitutional a Texas state law banning flag burning, but said nothing about whether a potential federal law would be allowed to stand. So maybe it would?
To find out, Biden introduced the Biden-Roth-Cohen Flag Protection Act of 1989. “Roth” was Biden’s fellow Delaware Sen. William Roth (R), while “Cohen” was former Sen. William Cohen (R-ME).
“The First Amendment’s protection for freedom of speech is not, however, absolute, as the Supreme Court has recognized on numerous occasions. Several exceptions have been recognized — for example, the First Amendment does not provide protection for defamatory statements; for obscene materials, as the Supreme Court reaffirmed just a few weeks ago; and for artistic and other creative works protected by our copyright laws,” Biden said on the Senate floor in 1989. “So why shouldn’t we recognize an exception for national unity and pride — in which there certainly is a compelling governmental interest?”
No such luck. Not even a year after the law’s October 1989 enactment, it was struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in another 5–4 decision United States v. Eichman.
In 1989, the same year Biden’s bill was enacted, the Senate tried to make the policy even more foolproof than a mere law, with a constitutional amendment proposal to ban flag burning. The Senate majority supported it 51–48, but that fell short of the two-thirds majority required. In seeming opposition to his affirmative vote on the law, Biden voted against the constitutional amendment.
Why the discrepancy? Because he felt a constitutional amendment was a step too far in directly messing with the text created by the Founding Fathers, even for a policy that he supported. “If we adopt this amendment, we would fray the comment that the flag embodies. We would become the first Congress in the history of this nation to limit the Bill of Rights,” Biden said on the Senate floor. “Ten days ago we adopted a statute to protect the flag. Today let us do what we must to protect the First Amendment.”
The constitutional amendment last came up for a Senate vote in 2006, when it similarly received majority approval 66–34 but fell short of the two-thirds required. Biden again voted no.
President Trump has previously expressed support for a constitutional amendment banning flag burning. It was introduced again last year by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) in the Senate and by Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR3) in the House, attracting 19 and nine Republican cosponsors respectively, but neither version has yet received a vote.
His first piece of legislation
As GovTrack previously covered, the first thing Biden ever introduced in the Senate was a 1973 symbolic resolution honoring the 500th anniversary of the birth of Nicholas Copernicus. The Polish astronomer is best remembered for popularizing the concept that the earth revolves around the sun, rather than vice versa.
After Biden’s resolution passed both the House by voice vote and the Senate by unanimous consent that March, President Richard Nixon signed it into law that April.
Biden’s first substantive bill introduced, with actual proposed policy changes, would have updated the Disaster Relief Act of 1970 to permit federal disaster assistance for economic loss stemming from causes besides natural disasters. It attracted five bipartisan cosponsors, four Democrats and one Republican, but never received a vote in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
Family members of deceased military members
One of Biden’s bills hardly tackled a nationally prominent political issue, in fact it affected only a handful of people at all, but touched an emotional chord once brought to Biden’s attention by one of his Delaware constituents. We’ll let Biden himself tell the story, as he did on the Senate floor in June 2005:
“Last year, a servicemember from my home state of Delaware was killed in action in Iraq,” Biden recalled. “The servicemember was stationed in Germany and his wife was German. She wished for him to be buried in Germany. So all of his relatives in the United States needed to travel quickly, and many of them did not have passports.”
“The law does not… allow the waiver of passport fees if the family is attending a funeral or memorial service for a servicemember killed in action, but who is buried or memorialized overseas,” Biden explained. “The need for such a waiver probably does not occur often, but it happens.”
Biden’s bill added that waiver. After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent in December 2005 and the House on a voice vote in March 2006, President George W. Bush signed it into law.
Steroids
Despite Major League Baseball officially banning steroids in 1991, the league largely turned a blind eye as home run counts surged and the league’s popularity increased. The 1998 season featured Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa simultaneously contending to break the decades-long season home record, a contest that riveted sports fans for months — although both were later found to have used steroids. Other top-level players found to have used steroids included Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Alex Rodriguez.
With 2003–04 being the years many of these allegations broke, Biden introduced the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004. While anabolic steroids in general were first placed into the federal list of controlled substances in 1990, Biden’s bill explicitly listed 50 different examples or variants — just so there would be no doubt about the status of, say, “4-hydroxy-19-nortestosterone.” The bill also established federal grants for schools to teach about the harmful effects of steroids.
After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 2004, President George W. Bush signed it into law. (Himself no stranger to Major League Baseball, having previously co-owned the Texas Rangers.)
Making it easier for 9/11 victims to subpoena
Established less than two weeks after the attacks, the September 11 Victims Compensation Fund provides money to victims of the attacks or their families, in exchange for recipients agreeing not to sue the airlines whose flights were hijacked. The average recipient got about $3.1 million. But an unforeseen technicality hampered the fund’s operations.
The original law establishing the fund set the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York as the judicial district for all lawsuits or court cases arising from the attacks and their aftermath. However, preexisting federal rules set the radius for subpoenas at 100 miles. In other words, if you live more than 100 miles from the judicial district where a trial takes place, you (usually) can’t be compelled to testify.
Biden’s Procedural Fairness for September 11 Victims Act of 2007eliminated that requirement specifically for cases involving the Fund. A carveout was allowed for a court to quash or alter a subpoena “if it is unduly burdensome to the witness subpoenaed.” After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 2007, President George W. Bush signed it into law.
The compensation fund was in the news again last year, when a law was enacted that permanently funds it, after it had previously received several temporary extensions through the years. After it passed the House by 402–12 and the Senate by 97–2, President Trump signed it into law in July 2019.
Changing eligibility for American Legion membership
Chartered by Congress in 1919 shortly after World War I, the American Legion is the nation’s largest veterans service organization with almost two million members. Its membership is technically supposed to include only members who served during wartime.
So, not long after the Gulf War began, Biden introduced a bill to formally include in the American Legion anybody who served in the military from August 2, 1990 “to the date of cessation of hostilities, as determined by the United States Government.” (That date would later be officially set as February 28, 1991.) After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent in July 1991 and the House by voice vote in November, President George H.W. Bush signed it into law.
Just last year, Biden’s law was superseded by another law. The LEGION Act(Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service) Act declared that — for purposes of American Legion membership — the U.S. has been in an uninterrupted state of war since December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked. After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent in June 2019 and the House by voice vote in July, President Trump signed it into law.
Combatting genocide
Inspired by the then-recent Holocaust, in which the Nazis attempted to kill all Jews in Europe, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in 1948. Any country which ratified the document bound themselves to recognize that genocide is “a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish.”
For decades, the U.S. Senate never formally ratified the document. Opponents’ concerns included the lack of a probable-cause hearing or due-process protections for defendants, and a lack of unanimity required for conviction by the U.N.’s International Genocide Penal Tribunal.
Official U.S. approval became the signature issue of former Sen. Bill Proxmire (D-WI), who delivered a speech about the subject on the Senate floor every single day that the Senate was in session for 19 years: 3,211 speeches in all. The Senate eventually approved the U.N. document by 83–11 in 1986, 37 years after it was created.
Then came the next part: legislation actually implementing the provisions into U.S. law. That task fell not to Proxmire but Biden, whose Genocide Convention Implementation Act of 1987 was popularly nicknamed the Proxmire Act. After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed it into law that November.
The U.N. convention has since come under criticism even from anti-genocide advocates, such as the Enough Project. During subsequent decades, “The U.S. government seemed to be more preoccupied with avoiding labeling the violence genocide — and thus triggering its obligation to respond — than actually preventing deaths,” the group wrote. “On one notorious occasion in April 1994, spokeswoman for the State Department Christine Shelly, floundered when asked if the violence in Rwanda constituted genocide.”
seems you missed these republicans ... what do they really know, Nothing would be the answer

The 1998 season featured Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa simultaneously contending to break the decades-long season home record, a contest that riveted sports fans for months — although both were later found to have used steroids. Other top-level players found to have used steroids included Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Alex Rodriguez.
With 2003–04 being the years many of these allegations broke, Biden introduced the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004. While anabolic steroids in general were first placed into the federal list of controlled substances in 1990, Biden’s bill explicitly listed 50 different examples or variants — just so there would be no doubt about the status of, say, “4-hydroxy-19-nortestosterone.” The bill also established federal grants for schools to teach about the harmful effects of steroids.
After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 2004, President George W. Bush signed it into law. (Himself no stranger to Major League Baseball, having previously co-owned the Texas Rangers.)
Making it easier for 9/11 victims to subpoena
Established less than two weeks after the attacks, the September 11 Victims Compensation Fund provides money to victims of the attacks or their families, in exchange for recipients agreeing not to sue the airlines whose flights were hijacked. The average recipient got about $3.1 million. But an unforeseen technicality hampered the fund’s operations.
The original law establishing the fund set the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York as the judicial district for all lawsuits or court cases arising from the attacks and their aftermath. However, preexisting federal rules set the radius for subpoenas at 100 miles. In other words, if you live more than 100 miles from the judicial district where a trial takes place, you (usually) can’t be compelled to testify.
Biden’s Procedural Fairness for September 11 Victims Act of 2007eliminated that requirement specifically for cases involving the Fund. A carveout was allowed for a court to quash or alter a subpoena “if it is unduly burdensome to the witness subpoenaed.” After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 2007, President George W. Bush signed it into law.
The compensation fund was in the news again last year, when a law was enacted that permanently funds it, after it had previously received several temporary extensions through the years. After it passed the House by 402–12 and the Senate by 97–2, President Trump signed it into law in July 2019.
Changing eligibility for American Legion membership
Chartered by Congress in 1919 shortly after World War I, the American Legion is the nation’s largest veterans service organization with almost two million members. Its membership is technically supposed to include only members who served during wartime.
So, not long after the Gulf War began, Biden introduced a bill to formally include in the American Legion anybody who served in the military from August 2, 1990 “to the date of cessation of hostilities, as determined by the United States Government.” (That date would later be officially set as February 28, 1991.) After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent in July 1991 and the House by voice vote in November, President George H.W. Bush signed it into law.
Just last year, Biden’s law was superseded by another law. The LEGION Act(Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service) Act declared that — for purposes of American Legion membership — the U.S. has been in an uninterrupted state of war since December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked. After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent in June 2019 and the House by voice vote in July, President Trump signed it into law.
Combatting genocide
Inspired by the then-recent Holocaust, in which the Nazis attempted to kill all Jews in Europe, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide in 1948. Any country which ratified the document bound themselves to recognize that genocide is “a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish.”
For decades, the U.S. Senate never formally ratified the document. Opponents’ concerns included the lack of a probable-cause hearing or due-process protections for defendants, and a lack of unanimity required for conviction by the U.N.’s International Genocide Penal Tribunal.
Official U.S. approval became the signature issue of former Sen. Bill Proxmire (D-WI), who delivered a speech about the subject on the Senate floor every single day that the Senate was in session for 19 years: 3,211 speeches in all. The Senate eventually approved the U.N. document by 83–11 in 1986, 37 years after it was created.
Then came the next part: legislation actually implementing the provisions into U.S. law. That task fell not to Proxmire but Biden, whose Genocide Convention Implementation Act of 1987 was popularly nicknamed the Proxmire Act. After the Senate passed it by unanimous consent and the House by voice vote in October 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed it into law that November.
The U.N. convention has since come under criticism even from anti-genocide advocates, such as the Enough Project. During subsequent decades, “The U.S. government seemed to be more preoccupied with avoiding labeling the violence genocide — and thus triggering its obligation to respond — than actually preventing deaths,” the group wrote. “On one notorious occasion in April 1994, spokeswoman for the State Department Christine Shelly, floundered when asked if the violence in Rwanda constituted genocide.”
seems you missed these republicans ... what do they really know, Nothing would be the answer
