 “quick reaction forces"

What’s wrong with stationing a paramilitary force outside the capital in the interest of overturning a legitimate election?

And what about Ray Epps?

Got an Idea, how about shipping Trump and all of his allies to an island and give them full control of it, we'll see how far they progress.

They may be pathetic man children, but has they taken their aims to the extremes, there would have been enormous bloodshed. They would all have been killed, of course, but they could have potentially delayed the transfer of power on Jan 6 by a day or two. And Trump might have used the bloodshed as an opportunity to delay the transfer of power indefinitely, turning the US into a dictatorship.

Order may have been restored, but the underlying problem of American neo-fascism has not gone away.

Trump people think Trump is still president because Biden stole the election.

“He has a DEATH WISH,” Donald Trump wrote on Truth Social of Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, while also adding a racist dig at McConnell’s wife Elaine Chao, who is Asian American and a former member of Trump’s own cabinet.

“Must immediately seek help and advise [sic] from his China loving wife, Coco Chow!”

(Trump)

Hillary never sent her "Hillary Boys" after she lost and she even called Trump to congratulate him.

That’s ok then. Along with locker room talk of sexual assault, racist tirades and political blackmail all quite acceptable. /s

6 major issues concerning the majority of Americans and the DEMS in true fashion continue to obsess and focus only on Trump, and I’m lovin’ it. Keep at it. 5 more weeks.

lol No, not Dems. The alleged seditionists are going on trial, and that has nothing to do with politics.

A trial is a legal affair, not a political one.

“We are now where the founders were in March, 1775,” he wrote. He implored them to “step up and push Trump to finally take decisive action."

“The final defense is us and our rifles,” Rhodes wrote to the group. “Trump has one last chance, right now, to stand. But he will need us and our rifles too.”

Nothing but pure extreme violent radical domestic terrorism...

What's gonna happen when McCarthy "gets the gavel"? He and Gym Jordan are gonna shut down the trial?

Lol Nope. They're being tried for seditious conspiracy, very patriotic.

And it still is.

Elmer Stuart Rhoads III (the jokes write themselves!), a man so stupid he shot himself in the face, was such a rocket scientist that he documented his criminal intent in electronic fashion.

It’s too bad (for him anyway) that abject stupidity isn’t a legitimate defense (as they were for Jr AKA Freddo 2).

Exactly - it's like the movie Ground Hog Day...

On one message, Rhodes urged his followers to get their “get your gear squared away" and be “ready to fight.” What do you think about that?

But The Border....

In another — sent to a group called “FOS” or "Friends of Stone" that included Trump ally Roger Stone — Rhodes urged his fellow Oath Keepers to think of the ways early Americans had resisted the British. “We are now where the founders were in March, 1775,” he wrote. He implored them to “step up and push Trump to finally take decisive action." Isn't this domestic terrorism?

But Homelessness...

“The final defense is us and our rifles,” Rhodes wrote to the group. “Trump has one last chance, right now, to stand. But he will need us and our rifles too.” Isn't this a call for an insurrection?

But Hunter...

Welcome to MAGA-world....

If by some divine intervention from the Lord the Dems would retain the House, I would have no choice. But that's beyond wishful thinking.

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and four associates charged with seditious conspiracy will face 10 years in prison when found guilty.

Jacob Chansley, the self-described "QAnon Shaman" who infamously marched through the U.S. Capitol with a spear and horned helmet during the Jan. 6 riot, was sentenced to 41 months in prison for his role in the attack.

Guy Reffitt, of Texas, receives a sentence of seven years and three months.

Thomas Webster, 56, was convicted in May on multiple charges, including assaulting police and violent and disorderly conduct sentenced to 10 years.

Amazing a deranged Trump-hating liberal mows down a young Republican in the prime of his life with his car and he gets zero time.

The real story and not the above fake post.

Shannon Joseph Brandt, 41, is charged with murder but not sentenced.

According to court records, Brandt is now charged with murder and failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving injury or death and render aid. He is now being held without bond at the Stutsman County Jail.

GOP fanboys struggling to support the Jan 6 rioters and looters of the Capitol Building. Trying to bring democracy down on its knees. They failed. Trump failed. Any excuse will do. Trump will even pardon those crims in 2024.

Trump already pardoned himself and declassified documents. It's all in the head.

Brandt, who was first booked at his home on driving under the influence and later charged with the felonies related to the hit and run, has since been released from Foster County jail on $50,000 bond.

Did you read it?

"According to court records, Brandt is now charged with murder and failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving injury or death and render aid. He is now being held without bond at the Stutsman County Jail."

No walking except into a courtroom.

Don't post off-topic fake news. This isn't Faux News.

Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, 1%ers.

Why do they all sound so homoerotic ?

6 ( +7 / -1 )

So if the Proud Oath keepers Boys forced Trump to stay that means these problems would not exist?

And if they had managed to "stop the steal" and keep Trump in office Proud Oath BoyKeepers would be the ones who save America because the saved the Trump Whitehouse, which would mean we would no longer have:

Gas prices rising (again)

Inflation (climbing)

Crime (rising)

Food prices (rising)

Homicide (rising)

Homelessness (rising)

...because Trump has the magic touch to cure all these problems.

So it is the Oathboy proud Keepers who make the US strong because they keep Trump in office forever (which keeps the US successful forever)

When you cannot argue the facts of a legal case

Is that the Dems excuse now?

"You just wait till Kevin has the gavel" or Hunter or, well, ANYTHING to distract from that fact that your guy is a seditionist who was stupid enough to document everything.*

Like the Dems, conservatives can walk and chew gum at the same time. Just wait.

The Trumpyfans are the ones who are truly obsessed and focus only on Trump..

It seems that Trump is their God and balieve that narcissistic clown is going to save the US, which is already sunk by the incompatibility of BOTH political parties from decades ago..

Why do medieval conservatives love to defend criminals???.. Do they identify with them??..

I posted the correct info that he has been charged with murder and sitting in prison waiting for trail. Not so hard to understand.

Nothing to do with the article.

And that is a pretext to carry out a terrorist attack on a legitimately elected government??.. 

No, but almost 75% of the country is worried about more depressing things. Trump attacks doesn’t put food on the table for people.

The logic of the Trumpybelievers is as belligerent as it is ignorant.. 

If so, then the Dems would be winning the house so…..

Spoiled children and bad losers who take away their lollipops..

In 5 weeks we shall see it that’s true.

45 continues to focus on 45. The only issues getting discussed are the ones he whines about.

RNC former communications director summed the issue up nicely:

“Here is the problem with these events: What does Trump do? He talks about the candidate he is allegedly there to support for about 60 seconds, he may or may not insult the candidate — as he did with J.D. Vance — and then the rest of it is the Trump Grievance Tour,” said Doug Heye, a former communications director for the Republican National Committee.

Heye added that Trump’s grievances — generally revolving around false claims of election fraud — “are of interest only to Trump, as opposed to the issues the candidate would prefer to be talking about.”

Shannon Brandt, 41, was originally arrested on Sept. 18 and charged with vehicular homicide in the death of Cayler Ellingson.

Brandt was originally charged with vehicular homicide and released on $50,000 bond.

Brandt is now charged with murder and failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving injury or death and render aid. He is now being held without bond at the Stutsman County Jail.

Fox News similarly reported that police found “no evidence” to support that the incident involved politics. Brandt’s neighbors also told Fox News that the man had mental health issues and that his alleged attack on Cayler was not motivated by politics.

“are of interest only to Trump, as opposed to the issues the candidate would prefer to be talking about.”

which doesnt matter because the only reason that candidate is even in that position to begin with is because of Trump's endorsement.

Do you really think there was a big demand from anyone for JD Vance or Mehmet Oz to be a Senator?

no, not really.

These people simply exist as a proxy vote for Donald Trump and his policies, which are what is wanted.

Do Raphael Warnock or Dianne Feinstein exist for any apparent reason or special skill or ability that they have?

No. they exist because they will vote whatever Chuck Schumer tells them to vote for an do whatever he tells them to do.

So we are building a group of Trump endorsed people who we can count on to do the same.

No more RINOs voting with Dems.
