What a loser. Good riddance.

Excellent !!!..

Charge all of them..

And also the one who gave the order, the Little Duce Dony..

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

He’ll be out soon enough, wait for these counter lawsuits be filed after November. The only thing now is just play the game until then.

Good news! Lock up all these far-right traitors and domestic terrorists....

They'll be more behind him once the Jan 6th hearings are complete...

MAGA - More Anti-American Government Attacks....

@bass4funk...Yes, let their little games begin.

A Republican candidate for Michigan governor and ardent defender of former President Donald Trump

When one party in the two party political system of the most influential nation on Earth bases it's political philosophy on the idolization of a man like Donald Trump....

This could be the most dismal timeline for America.

Here’s one real oddball the Republicans can keep.

-1 ( +5 / -6 )

MAGA - More Anti-American Government Attacks....

more like anti-establishment; and pro-America and pro-smaller government.

Even though this has happened to a republican candidate, I still don’t see myself voting for the Democratic Party.

Bass: wait for these counter lawsuits be filed after November

Why after November?

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

wait for these counter lawsuits be filed after November. The only thing now is just play the game until then.

Why wait until November? Is that when the new regime comes in and heads will roll?

What a sophomoric view of democracy.

MAGA - More Anti-American Government Attacks....

more like anti-establishment

,more like anti-democracy...

and pro-America

and pro-Russia...

and pro-smaller government

and authoritarian government...

Even though this has happened to a republican candidate, I still don’t see myself voting for the Democratic Party.

We know, authoritarian fascists can never support democracy and the will of the people...it's all about power and tyranny of the minority. You'll see plenty of examples at the Jan 6th hearings this week....

I'm watching the Jan 6 hearings live now. They have an insane amount of communication data.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Has it “blown the roof off the House” or “changed history” yet? Or will they get to that part later?

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

As far as this candidate they need to protect their Whitmer at any cost.

so this guy must be the one they thought had the best chance of winning.

so we just arrest people running in active elections now for 1.5 year old misdemeanors?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Live Jan 6, hearing are now on all the major networks,but probably not Fox

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Most misdemeanors have a 12 month statute of limitations as they are only punishable by a maximum of 12 months in jail. An arrest 17 months later? Must be a super serious special misdemeanor.

Yet where are the arrests for protesting with intent to influence Justices? Or the ones in these cities that aren't even held on bail for actual use of weapons?

Blacklabel: Or will they get to that part later?

They're showing footage of the Capitol storming now and beating police officers. It's brutal and heartbreaking.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Doesn’t sound like anything we haven’t seen a billion times on CNN.

Did they show the footage of police inviting people in and not reacting when people peacefully walked inside?

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Lots of new footage, including inside offices. You see McCarthy's staff running out of the office. Pretty brutal, can't imagine what they were thinking that day.

It's difficult seeing the violence so up close in our government.

The text messages between Hannity and the WH Press Secretary are insane. On Jan 7 he contacted her and gave her the narrative to use.

Except that he got it wrong.

He listed a plan saying Trump would accept the results after talking with Mike Pence. Hannity told her to say that Trump is even considering going to the inauguration. She thanked him and told him should would do it.

Obviously Trump changed Hannity's mind.

In other news, Fox's entertainment division is giving the WH narratives to use.

And here's one more far-right nutty Repub they should lock up;

*Republican House candidate Carl Paladino praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s ability to rouse “the crowds” and declared *Hitler “the kind of leader we need today”

https://www.yahoo.com/news/gop-candidate-carl-paladino-calls-161513014.html

And there ladies and gentlemen in his own words is your current Republican Party today...praising a dictator that sent millions to their deaths...

Remember that when placing your vote in Nov 2022/24...

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Unfit for election. Anyone who supported Trump the last 2 yrs, is unfit for any office.

If you want to not have your data used against you, don't use a cell phone and certainly don't use SMS. There's a reason IT security people and OPSSEC experts limit their use of cell phones.

If you know anything about Roman history, you'll easily see the parallels between what is happening now in America and the final years of the Roman republic.

Excellent news.

Ego, while the parrallals are indeed strong, the actual decline of the Roman Empire took centuries.

But what about the 15:00 hrs. a video that actually the public has a right to see but the Democrats and this so-called committee are not willing to show, and what happened to ray Epps? They want to supposedly get to the truth, but they want certain tidbits of it, odd….

Have fun burrowing down into those rabbit holes.

It's amusing how you poo-poo this whole investigation into January 6 (the severity and implications of which are pretty obvious), but have great interest in half-baked conspiracy theories surrounding "hidden" video footage and the "mystery" of Ray Epps.

Maybe Jim Jordan can start up a special commission.
