  1. Fighting back…I hope more step it up in the coming days and pull us out of this mess…
    Hawley wrote in his ethics complaint:

    In light of the shameful abuse of the ethics process you have deliberately engaged in, I have considered whether I should call for you to resign or be expelled from the Senate. But I continue to believe in the First Amendment, which the US Supreme Court has repeatedly said protects even “offensive” and malicious speech, such as yours.

    The First Amendment does not, however, give you carte blanche to abuse the Senate ethics process. I have today filed a complaint with the ethics committee that details your deliberate and partisan abuse of this process, including your apparent coordination with various dark money groups, and requests that you be appropriately disciplined.

  2. Some have said that the courts unfairly dismissed the various cases brought by Giuliani and Powell. If so, they will now have the chance to present their evidence in court due Dominion’s lawsuit against them.

    “For everyone who believes that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuits against Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani will be something to watch carefully over the next several months. Dominion is arguing that the allegedly defamatory statements made by Powell, Giuliani, and others were made with *actual malice* – in other words, the defendants KNEW that their statements about Dominion were false. This means that if Powell and/or Giuliani can put forward any evidence showing that they had reason to believe that their statements were true, they win the case. If Powell and/or Giuliani actually have any such evidence, this is their gold-engraved invitation to present it in court.

    These lawsuits represent the ultimate calling of the Powell and Giuliani bluffs – one way or another, there will be no more basis for claiming that the courts didn’t give them a chance to prove their claims. If Powell and Giuliani can show proof, so be it.” ~ David Roland, Director of Litigation at Freedom Center of Missouri

  3. I am utterly sickened by what our Congress has done with this impeachment (almong other things). I am appalled and sickened to see our government start to resemble some of the governments we have condemned around the world. I am sickened by the false history being taught in our schools.

  4. : “whenever the
    vicious portion of [our] population shall be permitted to
    gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and burn
    churches, ravage and rob provision stores, throw
    printing-presses into rivers, shoot editors, and hang and
    burn obnoxious persons at pleasure and with impunity,
    depend upon it, this government cannot last.”
    From Abe Lincoln in that 1776 paper Tychicus referenced.

  6. How the %#@% do you have an impeachment trial against a now private citizen with no Chief Justice presiding (constitutional law!) and appoint a liberal leftist Senator from Vermont as the “Judge”??!!! I am incensed!! This Senate is a stinkin’ clown show and they are getting away with it? Kangaroo court 😡

  8. Finally – a judge with a backbone!

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/federal-judge-blocks-biden-deportation-freeze-nationwide-after-texas-ag-challenge_3672601.html?utm_source=news&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2021-01-26-2

    “A federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked an executive order issued by President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of certain immigrants for 100 days.

    U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday blocking Biden’s policy nationwide for 14 days after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton challenged it in court.

    The order is a setback to the Biden administration, which has proposed far-reaching changes including a plan to legalize about 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States illegally. Last week, the administration also issued an order that halts all U.S.-Mexico border wall construction.”

  9. Maybe AJ’s blood pressure needs a break too, so perhaps he’s gone on a nice fishing trip or something.

    I don’t plan to watch the Senate farce, though I did watch the Rand Paul clip. It is enough to have the knowledge that it’s happening. And I will want to remember the names of any Republicans who vote for (or Democrats who vote against) impeachment. I would not want to mistake either friend or foe in the future.

  10. Somebody posted 4 years ago — elections have consquences….I imagine the mid terms will change things as they usually do

    Kizzie, good point. I’m sure DVS did not lauch this lawsuit and everything is well thought through. It will be interesting if this goes to trial. My guess is it will be settled out of court with an NDA. Too bad it would be fun to watch.

    Have no idea what’s with the impeachment — to busy with online school; I should get bonus pay for this. And I still think the Democrats should’ve gone after him over conflicts of interest. Today Biden ordered federal prisons to stop any new or renewed private for profit prison contracts. Obama planned a phase out of for profit prisons. In 2016 GEO group, the largest private prison corporation, gavve 250,000 to Trump’s inaugural committee. And in 2017, GEO group moved its annual convention to a Trump owned golf resort in Floirida. Trump rescineded Obama’s phase out.

    Let’s face it; McConnell disregarded any rule or tradition that stood in his way. He even contraidicted himself. He refused a hearing for Garland because it was an election year. Four years later he rushed Barrent’s hearing in a week only weeks before the election. The first impeachment trial was also a farce with no evidence or witnesses called — not a real trial by any stretch of the imagination. Not sure if the Democrats are going to listen to complaints of rules and traditions.

    Hawley is quite the self righteous whiner. He complains he is muzzled yet he can publish a front page op ed in NY Post to complain. Some of the Republican congressional representatives who spoke at the rally are lucky they aren’t getting impeached or investigated by the FBI or D of J. I’m thinking of the young man from Alabma who was quite incidinary as was Trump Jr.

  11. 😂 conflict of interest? Trump? How about Biden and Hunter and their dealings with China and the Ukraine? They’ve sold their souls and the soul of this nation was part of the deal.
    Hawley is incensed…just like over half of this country as to what the socialist Democrats are doing. They live like Kings, rule like Dictators and the lowly peasants are supposed to sit back quietly and nod their collective heads…nah…I don’t think so.
    There are more and more legit citizens who voted for Biden now having “buyers remorse”…it certainly will be getting interesting in the coming days….

  12. My own suspicion is that AJ’s wife or daughter got control of “the remote control” (this site) while he is being encouraged not to watch or listen to any news for a certain amount of time for the sake of his emotional health and/or their marriage. (I’m not trying to be smug in making predictions, just saying my hunch is he is OK and it’s better for him/them for him to take some time off.) I do hope he is OK and have prayed for him, but the fact that the site continues to be posted would suggest that he is OK but just taking a much-needed break.
