Re: Nancy Pelosi is off her rocker

Someone please cut and paste the segment of Trump's speech where he encouraged people to storm the Capitol. Bryce, if the point of your post is to say unless there's some verbal smoking gun Trump has no culpability in the events of Jan. 6th, I would pass along this story from Vox where a University...

Re: Nancy Pelosi is off her rocker

Robert, therein lies the problem. When it comes right down to it, regardless of how legally meritorious a case can be brought against Trump, we're still going to be counting hands and those hands are bound by the cloudiness of partisanship in the court of a legislative impeachment. We've already se...

Re: Trump banned from Twitter

Twitter has always wanted to ban Trump, and they finally found their opportunity. I fail to see how suspending the account of the President of the United States, who had 88 million twitter followers, is in the best interest of the shareholders. Which is it? Either they want the eyeballs and the rev...

Re: Nancy Pelosi is off her rocker

I truly don't understand the pushback on an impeachment and trial. This is a method as prescribed in our Constitution! What happened on Wednesday was a big deal. A once in a couple centuries type of event. Weaker nations have had governments collapse under just these kinds of scenarios. If now isn'...

Re: Nancy Pelosi is off her rocker

While there's certainly a case to be made for going the SECOND impeachment route, I'd be far more in favor of having federal Marshalls at the door of wherever Trump's hidey hole will be at 12:01 Jan. 20th with a set of bracelets and an arrest warrant in hand for aiding and abetting the events of Jan...

I think a lot of them are worried about being put in a position where they might have to work with the cabinet on a potential 25th Amendment deal. Just dive off the ship now.
^ This is the correct answer. It most certainly doesn't have anything to do with maintaining integrity and reputation.

Re: Fascists' storm The US capital.

Smells like more Bryce bullshit. https://news.yahoo.com/woman-dead-shot-inside-us-004123550.html Police shot an unarmed woman. Where's your outrage? Participating in a coup IRL is different than playing "Call of Duty" on an XBox. She learned a tough lesson that the Trump flag she was wearing as a c...

Atop the Capitol's heights

Re: Fascists' storm The US capital.

I've just watched the various video of the people that stormed the Capitol. I see and notice little things average people don't. I will give 2 to 1 odds that the small number of people that stormed the Capitol were not run of the mill Trump supporters. Notice too, the crowd went home at curfew time...

Re: Fascists' storm The US capital.

I'm also reminded the raft of shit Ted Wheeler, Portland's mayor as well the Seattle's mayor got from Trump for being 'weak' against protesters who disobeyed police and, in Portland's case, wreaked havoc at a federal property. Go back and check those tweets... '10 years in prison for crimes against ...

Re: Merrick Garland rides again

As much as I would have liked seeing Sally Yates get the gig (along with a steaming cup of FU) I'm good with this and frankly there's no reason should a SCOTUS slot open Garland gets that position and Yates takes over for him at Justice.
