      Where do you stand on the DOJ refusing to enforce the laws regarding intimidation of judges? Or do you think intimidation is warranted, as Roe V Wade is sacrosanct? By any means necessary, right?

      Sorry, CC, I’m not playing that game.

      I’m the same as I’ve always been. The Demented Left is as demented as ever, only now has far more influence than it should have.  I still have little regard for the king of the wimps, Barack Obama. (I regret ‘Pretty Boy’ because it has a resonance of effeminacy and homosexuality that is unfair. But the implication of ineffectuality and passivity I don’t regret.) I have no patience with the Woke crowd. I look forward to the Democratic debacle in 2022 and likely in 2024.

      The colossal non-sequitur that you and almost everyone else on this board fall into is that, to maintain these beliefs, I have to support Donald Trump. That is simply not so. In fact, it is exactly the logic with which Biden and the Democrats hope to avoid the election consequences they so richly deserve. They hope to force the public to choose between a party wedded to this semi-psychotic narcissist and his absolutely delusional history, and the complete failure of Democratic policy. Donald Trump is the shield from the failure of its policy.

      No, thanks. Trump has to go, and into prison. To answer a couple of rather silly points elsewhere, I am fully aware that Trump supposedly offered National Guard troops to Pelosi. (The big lie was  10,000, back in 2o21, upped to 20,000 earlier this year.) It never happened, a rationalization by core Trump loyalists after the fact. It’s been thoroughly debunked – https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2022/jun/13/sean-hannity/no-evidence-pelosi-rejected-trumps-authorization-2/, https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/15/no-trump-did-not-order-10000-troops-secure-capitol-jan-6/https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2021/12/16/fact-check-no-trump-request-10000-guard-troops-jan-6/8929215002/

      Offhand estimates in political speeches are not the same as formal requests, which Trump never did. The ‘sources’ for this are Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.

      I wouldn't give you two cents for all your fancy rules if, behind them, they didn't have a little bit of plain, ordinary, everyday kindness - yeah, and a little looking out for the other fella, too.

      Nor do you claim an election was stolen because the press – or some of it – was mean to you. What happens in an election is that you count the votes. The candidate with the greater number wins. Pretty simple. A credible case that there were illicit votes of a material number and you can fairly state the election was stolen. There’s a good case that this happened in 1960. The much demonized Richard Nixon, a real patriot,  refused to bring the challenge in the interests of national unity. That sort of thinking is beyond Trump.

      What actually happened was that Trump lost cold, and knew it. He responded by summoning a mob to Washington, firing it up, then retreating into the White House for three hours and congratulating himself when it tore into the Congress. He could have gone immediately online and called it off. He didn’t. He apparently gloated, and identified with them.

      I’d charge him with treason, seditious conspiracy, and maybe responsibility for the homicide that did occur.

      I won’t be posting again here – not worth it. You guys have got to start seeing the world clearly.

      Three links to very articulate conservatism, that I like a lot. The first is Common Sense, set up by Bari Weiss, the woman who resigned so spectacularly from the New York Times – https://bariweiss.substack.com/.

      The second is The Dispatch, Jonah Goldberg’s venture, a mind of solid observation about the absurdities of the Democratic Party and Woke culture – https://thedispatch.com/people/4350832-jonah-goldberg

      Finally, the redoubtable Commentary, around forever – Jewish conservative thought. https://www.commentary.org/

      None of these observers has any use for Biden. But one and all, they want Donald Trump gone and forgotten.

      You have a choice. You can look for effective opposition to the excesses of the Democrats – or you can continue to be loyal to this semi-psychotic narcissist, and make people wonder about YOUR grasp of reality.

      I want to see Trump indicted, convicted, and imprisoned, because he committed major crimes and did colossal damage. That doesn’t mean I’m suddenly Woke. It means I see more clearly than most of you how much harm Trump does to actual opposition to all the nonsense going on.

      Go in peace. I’m done.

      End

      What game? I asked a specific question and you answered with a rant about Trump that has nothing to do with the the question I asked. Now you’re taking your ball and going home. Wow.

      And by the way. I don’t support Trump. I support his policies almost completely, and enjoy his sense of humor. Though, as I’ve not met him, I seriously doubt I’d like the guy.

       

      But more to your point, you’d charge him treason and push to see him hanged in the public square, as that is the penalty for treason, correct? How Stalinesque.

      GR, please don’t take your ball and go home.  I (and I think I can say we) value your insights.  This board is a place where I will challenge what I believe are extreme positions, or where I want to at least present evidence that will support my views on things.

      I have no intention on changing your opinion of Trump.  I am, however, interested in challenging your position he is directly responsible, and further criminally responsible for treason and sedition.  My position is simply that the evidence, which we have known since at least January 12, 2021, does not support your position.  I hope that I have supported my position with evidence.  Please keep an open mind.  With that spirit in mind, please consider listening to this podcast episode re: the January 6 hearings.

      https://ruthlesspodcast.com/episodes/the-libs-are-dangerous

      The tagline of the podcast refers to the Kavanaugh assassination attempt, so disregard it and keep an open mind.  Keep in mind that this podcast is slanted, and the commentary is meant more to entertain than inform.  It does present, however, a view of the January 6 hearings that I believe most of the nation holds at this point.

        He’ll be back…

        He’s been attacking Trump for years going back to Thunderdome with the same language over and over that he’s using here.    Narcissist.  Semi Psychotic Narcissist.  Incredibly repulsive personality.  Nativist.  Divisive.  Unlikable Jackass. Vulgarian….  Now he’s added sedition, treason and conviction, life in prison..  A master of  pejoratives he claims people here can be very nasty.

        He used to do battle with a guy named Mugsy who was even more arrogant than GR but he disappeared.  Mugsy was really fun which is the whole point of these discussions.

        GR now claims to see things more clearly than people here and their grasp of reality.  That’s really good stuff for any board.

      Thanks for the compliment, but it’s really not my cup of tea.

      A little too one-sided, and every once in a while, some real nastiness.

      I’m trying to devote my energy to the blogging to do, but that requires work and the temptation to slack back and watch tennis or one of the really good extended series.

      Good luck to everyone, and see you every once in a while.
