Democrats Joined Hands With Republicans After 911, Now Republicans Refuse To Do The Same To Remove Trump

The Republican Party is hell-bent on drag­ging America down a path to destruc­tion that the coun­try will not be able to come back from.
After the coör­di­nat­ed attack on the Article One branch of the US Government on January 6th, in which some mem­bers have been rumored to have played a part, they still refuse to step back from the edge of the cliff.
This kamikaze-style fanati­cism seems to wors­en instead of get­ting bet­ter, despite the bla­tant­ly obvi­ous cat­a­stroph­ic outcomes.
After the assault on the Congress, Speaker of the House Democrat Nancy Pelosi has report­ed­ly ordered that met­al detec­tors be installed in the build­ing. Republican mem­bers of the House are report­ed­ly find­ing ways around the new­ly installed detec­tors. Even as we won­der about the effec­tive­ness of met­al detec­tors if some­one can walk around them, it bears remem­ber­ing that Democrats coa­lesced around Republican pres­i­dent George Bush to secure the nation after the attacks of September 11th, 2001.
Republican Congress mem­bers have refused to wear masks, which essen­tial­ly puts their Democratic col­leagues and their staff in jeop­ardy of con­tract­ing the COVID-19 virus.
Having been forced to shel­ter togeth­er on January 6th, as a con­se­quence of the assault they ini­ti­at­ed through lies and dis­in­for­ma­tion, sev­er­al Democratic House mem­bers have now test­ed pos­i­tive for the virus.
Speaker Pelosi appro­pri­ate­ly moved by ini­ti­at­ing a manda­to­ry mask pol­i­cy inside the build­ing; attached to the man­date is a $500 fine for fail­ure to comply.
Republican House mem­bers have come down against that as well. These peo­ple are not politi­cian rep­re­sen­ta­tives they are crim­i­nals. Almost all of them have to take air­line flights to get back to their states. they have no choice but to go through met­al detec­tors at air­ports, and they have no choice but to observe air­line pol­i­cy pro­to­cols to board those flights.
As one African-American Democratic mem­ber said,” if you work at McDonald’s, you have to wear their uni­form; if they do not want to wear a mask, they should find work else­where.”

Republican Lauren Boebert, 33, Colorado, a Trump show­boat, wants to car­ry her Glock in the house chambers.

We are told that some of the wide-eyed new Republican mem­bers now want to bring guns onto the house­’s floor. This is insan­i­ty of the opti­mum order. It is report­ed that many Republican House mem­bers car­ry weapons on Capitol grounds.
A 1967 reg­u­la­tion says no fed­er­al or District of Columbia laws restrict­ing firearms “shall pro­hib­it any Member of Congress from main­tain­ing firearms with­in the con­fines of his office” or “from trans­port­ing with­in Capitol grounds firearms unloaded and secure­ly wrapped.
Lawmakers may not bring weapons into the House cham­ber and oth­er near­by areas, the reg­u­la­tions say, accord­ing to the let­ter Rep. Jared Huffman, D‑Calif., wrote in 2018. Aides can car­ry law­mak­ers’ weapons for them on the Capitol com­plex, he wrote.

For decades the main­stream media used its plat­form to char­ac­ter­izes the feel­ings of this part of the pop­u­la­tion, which is now a hard­ened Fascist horde. As if peo­ple are unable to think for them­selves, the media elites told us these peo­ple were, quote; “work­ing-class whites,” “dis­af­fect­ed work­ing peo­ple,peo­ple in fly-over America who was not heard by the Government,” “peo­ple with eco­nom­ic anx­i­ety,” it goes on and on.
The fact is that we knew what they were for decades, “racist whites who did not like the chang­ing face of America.
For these nean­derthals, it has noth­ing to do with the econ­o­my as they pur­port­ed when President Barack Obama occu­pied the white house. Back then, they were all eco­nom­ic hawks, ter­ri­fied of the debt they would leave their chil­dren and grandchildren.
Since Donald Trump took over, those pan­icked con­cerns have con­ve­nient­ly dis­ap­peared. For the record, Obama worked to rein in the deficit; Trump explod­ed the deficit and debt to give tax breaks to wealthy Americans like him­self. The idiots had no prob­lem with that.

Those peo­ple are none of what the media has been telling you they are; they are every­thing we have been telling you they are. They are the rem­nant of the old order, the nean­derthals who believe that they have a right to all they see, and no one else has those rights.
Their anx­i­eties have noth­ing to do with the econ­o­my. It is about los­ing white priv­i­lege. One Democratic Congresswoman, Mikie Sherrill, revealed Tuesday she wit­nessed law­mak­ers giv­ing tours she per­ceived to be ‘a recon­nais­sance for the next day’ to groups last Tuesday.
She said she intends to hold account­able those mem­bers, who she did not name, and have them removed from Congress.

If those alle­ga­tions are true, and if those actions do not war­rant removal from con­gress, what is? If dem­a­gogues like Josh Hawley, Raphael Cruz, and oth­ers, are allowed to con­tin­ue to serve in a body they placed at exis­ten­tial risk, what does it say about the rule of law.
Last week we asked about the idea that a pres­i­dent can­not be charged with a crime while he is in office. We must be remind­ed that nowhere in the United States Constitution is that idea writ­ten. It was not writ­ten into the Constitution for the sim­ple rea­son that the framers did not want to have a King.
If a sit­ting pres­i­dent com­mits felonies, what on earth could jus­ti­fy him not being charged like every­one else and removed?
The Justice Department’s pol­i­cy, is one that has no sup­port in the Constitution, one that has kept Donald J Trump in pow­er even after he has com­mit­ted crimes that should have result­ed in his removal from office.
Mike Pence nar­row­ly escaped being hanged by the mob; they went look­ing for him, chant­i­ng, “Hang Mike Pence,” they built the gal­lows. The Speaker of the House and her Democratic cau­cus, and the Senate Democratic cau­cus, may have all been mur­dered, had some Capitol pro­tec­tive detail mem­bers not act­ed with dis­patch and professionalism.
At the same time, we should nev­er for­get that some mem­bers of that detail were active­ly aid­ing insur­rec­tion­ists as they assault­ed the complex.
Despite the atro­cious events that occurred on January 6h, mem­bers of the sedi­tion­ist Republican cau­cus went right back to prop­a­gat­ing the lies of a rigged elec­tion on the US House floor. They did so even as bro­ken glass, feces, and blood remained on the capi­tol floor and walls.
Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and oth­ers con­tin­ued to pro­mul­gate the lies that almost result­ed in the American Government’s Legislative branch’s total decapitation.
Decapitation of the Legislative Branch would have giv­en Donald Trump a free hand to take over the Government and make him­self President for life.
He had already moved the pieces in place across the cab­i­net and oth­er key depart­ments like the Pentagon.
The aver­age American may nev­er ful­ly under­stand just how close the American Democracy came to being overthrown.
