It's great that justice was served, but it shouldn't be a shock considering the event was literally filmed. Fuck that guy, hope he rots

Illegally bombing countries already huh?

Republicucks really did not want the Jan 6 Commission to pass. Don't want to upset their feudal overlord. 

It’s fine. Democrats will investigate it themselves through a Benghazi-like select committee.

Republicans sure have a hard time helping themselves.

As many of you know, I pay little to no attention to politics. I have a question: why does Trump keep telling people he's going to be reinstated in August?

The short answer is that he is a moron, the long answer is just that he is a moron with more words.

Fair enough, I'll accept that answer as fact lol.

Because a guy who sells pillows keeps telling him that the third recount taking place in Arizona will prove voter fraud.  This will in turn provoke other swing states that went for Biden to start their own highly partisan voter recounts that will, according to Mr. My Pillow, result in the election being rendered null and void and Trump being reinstated.

It's pure lunacy.  There's no legal mechanism to render an election null and void.  Even if inconclusive proof was discovered that demonstrated both Democrats and Republicans swung the election for Biden (again, keep in mind Republicans were in charge of elections in Georgia and Arizona, states Biden won), at worst it would mean that Biden would maybe step down and Harris, his VP, would take over.  Or say both stepped down.  Then Nancy Pelosi, the third in line by virtue of her being the Speaker of the House, would become President.

Again, there is no legal recourse or mechanism by which Trump becomes President short of running again in 2024.

I truly appreciate the long form answer, but after read that all I can honestly say is: Ok, thanks.....JESUS CHRIST.

August this!

On top of that he has been banned from Facebook for 2 years

See, this is exactly what he wants. People talking about him instead of taking about the issues with his organization. That's why he is talking out of his ass about August

I'm more concerned about the current state of the Republican Party.

I'm not even joking. I'd even give Marjorie Taylor Greene one given the opportunity! :lol:

It still seems like Trump is still a huge influence on the Republican party. What the hell?  Trump must have tons of shit on many of them since they still seem to be doing whatever the hell he told them to do.

I can't believe the state America is in right now. I don't think the world has been this bad since the middle ages.

Hate is still very much here no matter how many commercials you show telling how we must not hate and love each other. How long will this go on? we honestly have to be told to be tolerant of other people? I think this is just too damn sad. Common sense seems to be missing from many people these days.

See no damn common sense at all. And the children will suffer and possibly die.

Throwback to the last Israel-Palestine conflict. I made the statement that support for Israel was going down and you're going to start to see cracks in the support for Israel among the political class. I had no idea the support has dropped as much as it has for young evangelicals, of which the evangelical population is the political muscle for the Israel lobby. Without them, all you have are the big money players, essentially a brain without a body.

But a new survey commissioned by University for North Carolina at Pembroke researchers, carried out by Barna Group, has exposed what we have been finding for some time: younger evangelicals are much less supportive of Israel than older evangelicals, by a widening margin. The poll found a dramatic shift in attitudes between 2018 and 2021: support for Israel among young evangelicals dropped from 75% to 34%

This is good to see. What I fear though is that while support for Israel might be trending down, enthusiasm for actually urging the U.S. government to lessen support to Israel won’t change much. I just don’t think it’s close enough to home, it’s too far from being a bread and butter issue for voters to really put pressure on the government.
