Trump has raised a lot of money recently to ‘stop the steal.’ Presumably tens of millions of dollars. To my knowledge, our current campaign finance laws allow practically unlimited uses of money donated to candidates and office holders. If so that money will be there to soften the body blow of lost business and contracts.

If one pays attention it is blatantly obvious that at least some of the doors to the capitol were OPEN and that many/most of the “trumpsters” inside were acting like somewhat unruly tourists….INSURRECTION??? i THINK NOT……ps I sent $$ to help pay for some of my NY relatives expenses to go hear Trump talk….they had great trouble leaving the area after the speech because of the “mayors” (using the term loosely) closing down of many of the streets leading OUT of the area.

One would like to see “normalcy” return but believe Facebook just banning Ron Paul (not the son) for criticing them is unfortuneately more indicitive of the direction our country is going.PS Twitter purged over 70,000 accounts yesterday……Free speech appears to becoming a dissapearing treasure.

PS I do appreciate your posting my thoughts even tho on occasion both I (and my family to boot) realize they can be somewhat annoying.

Bill — That’s good. Glad you enjoyed your trip thru this area. Roanoke is my hometown. My mother is still rockin’ it, she’s 91 and needs eye-shots, so I bounce back-n-forth between Roanoke & Northern Va.

Bill — Appreciate the clarification. Here are some comments I’ve recorded over the past few days … I think this conflict is going to transition from ‘virtual’ to ‘real’ faster than many think ( this one is from Me … the rest from others … ) The Capitol building raid looked like a B movie production set funded with #DeepState Capital DC, America’s Capital allowed a staged raid in its Capitol building A government that doesn’t fear it’s people is out of control.. You’re witnessing that America. The depression falling over this country today has nothing to do with ANTIFA… Read more »

Some historical perspective … The other – Michael Moore @Michael89541443 The Reichstag fire, was staged, by the Nazi party, and the event, the Nazis used to install Hitler as a dictator and eliminate all democracy and freedom in Germany. Then the Nazis went after all they considered enemies of Nazi party, millions were arrested and sent to camps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichstag_fire Censorship in Nazi Germany strictly enforced by the governing Nazi Party, but specifically by Joseph Goebbels included control of all forms of mass communication, which included newspaper, music, literature, radio, and film. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_in_Nazi_Germany The Enabling Act of 1933, was a law… Read more »

tobyt and others who may be interested … here are some posts re. the two political discussion sites ( Parler & Gab ) that people are headed to after the ‘Twitter Purge’. My comments are at the end … Nearly 3,000 of President Trump’s tweets have been archived on @getongab because they were mirroring his Twitter feed. Take a look, and open a Gab account for yourself to exercise your free speech online. https://gab.com/RealDonaldTrump BlackJack @BlackJackBoGre1 I’ve said for a LONG time that an enterprising billionaire should start a media company and populate it with canceled talent.

UNBELIEVABLE!!
In May of 2020 BLM set fires all over the Capital and began coordinating an effort to storm the White House. The POTUS was forced into a bunker. DEMOCRATS & THE MSM APPLAUDED…egged them on.Jeered and LAUGHED at the President because he was taken to a bunker. BILL WHERE DOES YOUR REMARK TO “SHOOT TO KILL” COME FROM.???….WOW only recall shooting back in Vietnam at people who were shooting at me….notice how they are pussy-footing around the out of control individual who shot and killed the woman combat vet from the side and 6 feet away??

Hi Bill: We are of mostly the same viewpoint, however Pelosi and Schumer no longer should receive the benefit of the doubt. That horse has left the barn! Bernie Sanders follower, James Hodginson pinned down the Republican softball team with 50 gunshots in 2017: https://www.cnn.com/2017/06/14/homepage2/james-hodgkinson-profile/index.html – why wasn’t Bernie impeached for his betrayal and sowing disharmony? Steve Scalise was at death’s door! Rand Paul has been physically attacked and threatened numerous times: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2020/08/28/rand-paul-survives-his-third-attack-from-the-violent-left-n2575231 Maxine Waters in 2018 urged her followers to physically push back and harass Republicans in public: No Rest, No Peace! https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/06/maxine_waters_in_spittleflecked_rant_urges_intimidation_and_violence_against_trump_officials.html Kavanaugh hearings in 2018, protestors broke… Read more »

I don’t remember Bernie using on a sustained basis the kind of inflammatory rhetoric I have heard from Trump’s mouth over the past four years. Actually, over his entire life.   I just read the article that you cited. It says that the guy was a Bernie follower and hated Trump. It doesn’t attribute to Bernie any inflammatory statements.  I have heard Bernie say that Trump is a pathological liar.  Obviously true, and I don’t think it equates to Trump’s rhetoric. On Rand Paul, it was reported at the time that the incident was overstated by Paul. A better read of it was that Paul and his… Read more »

Bernie’s claims of Republicans killing 36,000 people per year if they repealed Obamacare isn’t inflammatory? Hodginson was led to think (falsely) that he was saving lives by mowing down Republicans. Bernie was twice given a flat tire by the Dem party in Presidential races despite being a delegate front-runner because why?
Hope these materials assist your memory about Bernie who is every bit as partisan and divisive as Trump:

They all need to go. I wish we had Parliamentary form of government and about 5 parties. Our system is completely broken.

Trump holds immediate responsibility for the violence in Washington yesterday. Yesterday, Trump, his son Donald Jr., Guiliani and other speakers made statements that were inflammatory; some of the statements encouraged violence.  This was to a crowd that obviously was susceptible to overreaction. I quote Bill Barr today: “Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable. The President’s conduct yesterday was a betrayal of his office and supporters.” And there is the background; Trump for his part has been sowing disharmony in the nation for the past four years.   Trump is President.  He is supposed to be a leader; a voice of moderation. He is supposed to bring… Read more »

Many years worth of frustration with mask requirements, Antifa violence, BLM violence and years of unproven allegations of “Russia” has led to today’s protest in Washington. A large segment of the population that has trusted their Federal government for far too long has inspired today’s actions. Trump may be Master of Ceremonies, but a simmering pot has boiled over – not because of his words, but because of the actions of others. Reap the whirlwind………..
