wasn’t Ben a rat?
Nobody in their right mind is “up for wheatgrass smoothies”
One – I live in DC and the ban is NOT happening. Your lying new sources may have you think so but it’s not. There are actually scheduled marches and gathers on the 20th both in support and opposition to Biden – small gatherings but a couple have notices of up to 5,000 people. So no, what you said is NOT true.
Two – your rant is still has no basis in reality. Also, gun registration is NOT in violation of the 5th amendment. Forcing a felon to say they have a weapon via registration IS a violation but “possessor who lawfully makes, manufactures, or imports firearms can and must register them” under the National Firearms Act which was upheld by the courts. That applies to Title II weapons, btw.
three – still an attempted coup. You may not like it but it’s still the fact. As for not wanting to take over, that’s also false. They wanted to prevent the transition of power which is ‘taking over’.
Yes, i know you won’t believe the facts because you’ve probably lived at least 4 years saying facts don’t matter, only what the President and his followers say matter… as if he’s the new messiah. But they do.
1. No she hasn’t. Back in late December, when the COVID numbers spiked, DC went back to essential personnel and businesses only – no indoor gatherings (limited attendance theater / concerts cancelled). But outdoor movement isn’t restricted at all. Also, the DC mayor doesn’t control federal property and lands which is where most protests happen anyways – that’s mainly under the oversight of the National Park Service2. Nope. They said they want to bring back the assault weapon ban that was in place during the 1990 and early 2000. None of what you claim happened then.3. Nope. No he didn’t. The Ukrainian ‘prosecutor’ was removed by threats from the EU, with US backing, due to corruption. In fact, Trump and his backers tried to recast it, the GOP was in full support of this action as the person was corrupt (and a Russian stooge). Maybe you should ask why these people have a problem with something we (the GOP) supported when it happened and afterwards
As for coup – the broke into the Capitol and tried to stop the constitutional election process. They made claims of violence against those supporting the actual process and voting for the electors submitted by the state. They attempted to force them to ignore them to get Trump to stay as President…. that’s a coup. They happily posted the videos of them threatening people at the Speakers lobby (where the lady was shot), trying to get at the elected officials. They roamed the halls looking for them…. that’s a coup.
The President backed them – actually told them to go down and ‘stop the steal’…. as protesters, outside of violence, how else were they to do that? They took him at his word and we go what we got.
Hillary was 2016, 4 years ago. While I didn’t vote for Pres. Trump and think he was a bad choice, i do think he did have some successes his predecessor wouldn’t have gotten (the 2020 Israel and Gulf states accords being one).
That said, he and his inner circle did back the rioters and give them cover, even during the situation. People may not want Biden (he’s a better option than almost all the other Democrats who ran) but we had a election and he won. That’s how it works. These folks were unable to accept it due to the President’s actions. His cases failed time after time, regardless of whom them appeared in front of. They kept claiming fraud and then provided nothing – and dropped it from the case as you can get in trouble in the court. In fact, it was a large number of Trump judges, along with other GOP appointed judges on the federal and state level, who shut down the cases as they brought forward nothing but innuendos and accusation… without a piece of evidence. The President knew this along with his backers but they lied to the public and got them angry enough – they claimed it was being stolen and must do whatever to ‘stop the steal’… and whatever includes violence, as we saw. He told them to go down to the Capitol and ‘stop the steal’, saying Pence won’t do it for them. As for peaceful – i live in DC. yes, there were a lot of peaceful protesters. I saw many of them. But there were a lot of very angry protesters willing to cause problems…. and the Capitol siege was just one of them. There were others that day and other days, just not as noticeable to the public, or at least the public supporting them.
As for Parler, i’m in agreement there, btw. Amazon can place rules on the social media’s owners to abide by US law (you cannot allow seditious actions to occur – the host is responsible by law) but the wholesale shutdown is just bad optics and sets a poor precedent.
So yes, this is ALL about Trump and had his backing.
i had that night in a hotel a few years ago. I yelled at the students running the floors between rooms at 2am on the business floor… i told them to stop it and pick a room.
And then realized i now sound like my dad.
not any more. It’s now, IN THEIR EYES: Fake News! This was a false flag operation run by Antifa thugs
Oh, and 2nd most votes for VP ended with the 12th Amendment, enacted 1804…. 5 years before Lincoln was born
Not only did the Lincoln era have the Electoral College, in both 1824 (prior to it) and 1878 (after it) we had massive challenges within the elections: a plurality winner thrown to the House in 24 and multiple slates of electors submitted in 78, which was decided by a committee. Compared to those days, this is nothing.
Heck, 1800 we had the same votes for Jefferson and Burr (given the system) and Burr fought to win it afterwards (1800 is still the nastiest campaign in US history).
