Hopefully enough Republicans will have the guts to get out from under the foot of the vindictive loser. I give it a 50-50 chance.

The filibuster isn't going anywhere. I'd rather see it reduced to something smaller, like a 55-vote threshold, rather than 60, but I'm still, at this point in time, against eliminating it entirely.

Cruz spent weeks parroting Trump's baseless claims of election fraud

Actually, Ted is too savvy for that. He didn't directly claim there was fraud. He just sat back and let others make that claim, then he'd point to opinion polls showing people didn't trust the election. From there, he framed his responses as, "people have serious questions" and "we need to delay certification so we can satisfy the American people."

That way, fraud or no fraud, his rear was covered. He was just protecting our Democracy. No one could possible be against slowing things down, asking questions, and protecting our great country, could they?

Cruz said Trump would remain a significant part of the political conversation, but that the Republican Party should move away from divisive “language and tone and rhetoric” that alienated suburban voters, particularly women, in recent elections.

Nah. With Trump gone that will be the easy part. Suburban women hated the pig.

But let's be real, Ted. You will not be getting away from divisive tone and rhetoric since it's all the GOP has. Your party no longer runs on platforms or positions. Your party runs on fear.

In Georgia the platform was "Don't vote for the communists". There was a prediction that the stock market would collapse (it didn't, it broke records). Notice how so many Trump fans suddenly, in unison, started to use the word "marxist" on this message board? Memo received. Ted himself told Texans that transgenders would suddenly start attacking little girls in bathrooms. And of course, completely open borders allowing anyone to stroll in.

In order for the GOP to agree and compromise with Democrats they have to convince their base that compromising with America hating communists is sometimes necessary. Good luck with that. Your next primary opponent is watching.

Atilla:. if I remember correctly, that no peace deals were possible without the Palestinians. Oops. 

Trump didn't negotiate any peace deals. Only Democrats have done that. He "normalized" relations. Right-wing media presented it as peace deals and you lacked the knowledge to understand the difference so you are repeating their message. They counted on your low information status.

Now that it's been exposed that you were tricked, as a good Trump supporter you should defend the fact that you were duped. You lack the self confidence to do anything different.

Posted in: Democrats gain Senate control as new members take oath See in context

McConnell is is refusing to enter a power-sharing agreement with Senate Democrats unless they meet his demands, chiefly to preserve the Senate filibuster — the procedural tool often used by the minority party to block bills under rules that require 60 votes to advance legislation.

I've always been on the fence about removing this.

The good: People like McConnell won't be able to abuse the filibuster to block everything and turn the Senate into a legislative wasteland, which is his legacy.

The bad: Simple majorities means the majority can literally the ignore the other party, which leads to a reduction in compromise, which I don't support. On top of that, as majorities change, policies can vary wildly as the other party takes over and reverses everything the last party did, which leads to a substantial lack of stability and consistency. Long-term planning (especially for business) becomes impossible if everything can change every couple of years.

Posted in: Trump pardons former top strategist Bannon See in context

Bannon's pardon is particularly awesome. He bilked Trump supporters our of their money, and now they have no recourse to get it back.

And I bet the vast majority of them, the ones who were defrauded by Bannon, support Trump's decision. It's a win-win for everyone. Stupid Trump supporters get scammed, and Trump pardons the scammer..

Just awesome. Another kick to the nuts for Trump fans while they cheer and wonder why they are feeling sore. It's because Trump and Bannon took your money, and you can't do a damn thing about it but support them.

Agreed. But Trump personally is so timid and tame he refuses to even meet Biden. He's describing Americans, not himself.

Noidall: Corporations get to violate free speech

For a group that talks constantly about 74,000,000 supporters, you don't seem confident in building your own platform.

Lack of money? Nah, that can't be it. Lack of technology? Nope. Lack of support? Heck no. So, what's the reason?

In fact, you can start it yourself. Call it NoidallsFreeSpeech.com. Allow people to come on to your site and let them post anything they want. If anyone challenges you, give them your lecture on free speech. And above all, don't delete or ban any members because naturally that would make you no better than Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Back up your words and keep it all up for the world to see.

Rumor has it that Kushner had to talk Trump out of starting his own platform. Why on earth would he do that? I just can't think of any reason why he would be against such a home run moneymaker. Maybe Kushner convinced Trump that he shouldn't support free speech. That's all I can think of.

How about you?

Posted in: Biden pushes unity two days before taking over; Trump considers 100 pardons See in context

I really don't know the path forward to unity.

What do you do with people like QAnon when they tell you pedophile satan worshippers are running the government and only Trump can save them? Do you say that you respectfully disagree?

Or white supremacists?

Newsweek is reporting that 75% of Republicans think Biden didn't win the election legitimately despite no evidence supporting that position. How do you reach someone who believes in something that has no evidence that it exists? What strategy do you use when Republican officials themselves are peddling the lies that add fuel to this problem?

Reach out to them for unity? Just like we tried to reach out to them to tell them Obama was in fact American and a Christian, which they still don't believe even after evidence was produced?

D.C. is in complete lockdown now as will most state government buildings on the 20th. Someone was arrested a couple of days ago with fake inauguration credentials with a gun and 500 rounds of ammo. Will a sit down conversation with him help to change his poisoned mind?

Even some Trump supporters are starting to jump ship....not because of what Trump did to incite the riots....but because they believe he abandoned them and their war. Again, exactly how do you reach someone like that?

The GOP leadership obviously isn't the way out. Only a handful of them will stand up to their base or face being primaried. Heck, they just elected a QAnon supporter who plans to file articles of impeachment against Biden on day 1. Crazy and unity are like oil and water.

Unfortunately, and I sincerely believe this, the only thing that can create a real measurable change is for some catastrophic event to happen by the violent fringe right before people finally start to back away. And it won't take millions of them. Just a handful. The FBI have already arrested many of them but they can't catch them all. Right now there are an insane amount of people discussing or openly planning open warfare in our country.

I support Biden's message because it's the only message he can give. But the GOP is such a toxic mess right now I think things will get worse, a lot worse, before things get better.

Yep. Always nice when a GOP member just come right out of the gate and declares themselves to be a nutjob.

"Impeachment is always bad for the country"

Then don't commit impeachable offenses. And if holding your guy accountable for his actions doesn't unite you with us, that's your problem.

Posted in: Comparison between Capitol siege, BLM protests denounced See in context

As others have pointed out, the biggest difference is, "the big lie." The violent Trump supporters (and peaceful ones as well) are being fed disinformation by their party leaders to whip the base into a frenzy. It's calculated. It's planned out. The election was not stolen, never was stolen, and there is no evidence of it being stolen. Your leaders are lying to you.

Protests by groups like BLM are over REAL things like documented police brutality. Obviously neither side is excused from violence, but the fact that the GOP is the one manufacturing the hostile atmosphere is a difference that should be called out and put front and center.

Additionally, as I mentioned in my last post, the right-wing owns things like straight-up terrorist attacks. The MAGA bomber, for example.

Posted in: Comparison between Capitol siege, BLM protests denounced See in context

Let's see....20,000 troops, practically an invasion force. Concrete barriers. Razor wire. Bomb sniffing dogs. Metal detectors in the Capitol building. National Mall closed. AirBNB cancelling all reservations. Airlines banning weapons and alcohol on flights to DC.

Plots to kidnap and execute elected officials. Social media posts calling for the murdering of left-wing politicians. Plans to take over government buildings. Wrist ties. Assault rifles and body armor. The FBI calling right-wing extremists the biggest threat facing the entire country.

Yep, pretty much the same as BLM, I guess.
