I hope that there are loads more people like Bubba who will, for the next four years, keep believing that Trump will oust Biden and become President again.
A Blue Majority is assured as long as Republicans won't move on after Trump cost them everything.

Yep. Trump fans attempting to kidnap Democrat politicians will certainly allow for long sentences. Do you think they will share a cell with Trump?

An extreme right wing internet platform called The Blaze previously claimed to have a photo of Nancy Pelosi's emails on screen, but this has now disappeared.
Hmm... 7 hours, I'm sure I'm ninja'd but The Blaze is Glen Beck's house o'crazy.

I think most Reepublicans know that Trump is pretty much finished.
It is going to be interesting seeing them try to distance themselves from Trump while holding on to his base.

but is it so out of character for Republicans not to instantly distance themselves from a clear loser.
Republicans have no issue with calling lifelong supporters Antifa-members in order to distance themselves. No True Scotsman is SOP whenever anyone becomes a liability.

But not in this case, and the reason, IMO, is their fear for their personnel lives and that of their families: they do think that the moment the stop supporting Trump, some of the MAGA-Monsters will start sending very graphic threats of rape to their children.

Not quite the level of sheer stupidity that "cgi!" is apparently aiming for, but the ever reliable folks at CluesForum are giving it the old college try. And they give it the attention to detail that these idiots are noted for worldwide:

Good question.

The fact is that this little show made it possible to skip the senate session and all the inconvenient objections and debates and declare Biden the winner of the election, while potentially criminalizing a hundred million+ Trump supporters.
Did it, now?

He won't. In this way, when whole nonsense planned for 17-20 January fails, he will get to claim again that "it was totally not it, just waaait" somewhere in February (since it will be that long before he returns to this forum).

I take this behavior as evidence that at some level Bubba knows he is peddling ****.

Nah. I predict that in 4 years he (and others like him) will sing paeans for new fuhrer, Trump long ago forgotten.

I am often reminded of these dolts when I see clouds illuminated from below by the rising or setting sun.

And yes, it’s funny how conspiracists like flat Earthers, “Q” believers, and the like are so much less observant of the real world than normal. They basically gather an infinity of twigs but can’t see the trees, let alone the forest, all the while constantly assuring each other of their cleverness.

If those cops were on the side of the rioters, they need to be. arrested with the other members of the enemy force. However, I saw video of many heroic police officers using all manner of force to beat back a crowd of treasonous Trump supporters. I'm honestly at a loss as to why they didn't use more deadly force. If they'd shot more of the protestors that might have ended the attack sooner and given pause to those who may be coming for round two on the 20th.

For you perhaps. If the enemy attacks again the way they did on the 6th, I don't think anyone will be surprised. Please tell me you'll be online here at noon on the 20th.

First Lady Melania Trump on Monday said she was “disappointed and disheartened” with the violence that erupted in Washington on Jan. 6 and called on Americans to “heal in a civil manner.”

In her first statement since the storming of the U.S. Capitol, Trump said her heart goes out to those who lost their lives that day, including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick and President Donald Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt.

“I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me—from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain,” Melania Trump wrote.

“Our nation must heal in a civil manner. Make no mistake about it, I absolutely condemn the violence that has occurred on our nation’s Capitol. Violence is never acceptable,” she added.

This whole family is beyond contempt.(*)

I used to lay off of Tiffany, when there was reporting she was estranged from Donny. Lately though, she's as bad as her three older siblings. The Trump family is a cancer on this country (expect Barron as you say).

It's difficult to believe these people are so stupid that they don't realize just how hard their dicks will be knocked into the dirt, how far their **** is going to be pushed back. It'll be fun to watch, as I'm sure these morons will live-stream their demise. Those rounded up like curs will be in the slams as Biden is inaugurated, and Diaper Don is fuming at Mar-A-Lago, filling up Depend after Depend, his thumbs flailing wildly on his neutered tweet machine.

In a way Trump is draining the swamp. He's leaving the White House and taking his sniveling sycophants with him. Getting Trump out of Washington would go a long way to ending corruption in this town.

I expect the enemy force will be smaller this time. The arrests will give the part time seditionists pause. The ones that do come are more likely to be armed and violent.

These idiots <stifling laughter> actually believed Trump when he said he was elected to drain the swamp, and applauded when he started nominating swamp monsters.

So I guess it comes as no surprise that they fantasize he's going to declare martial law, or some other stupid baseless claim, and remain in power, when in reality, he can't even tweet!! I mean, how powerless are you when a social media outlet slaps your dick down, and how clueless do you have to believe that this diaper- ******** dickhead is somehow going to prevent Biden from becoming president?

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

Bit of a nonsequitur (sorry) but who was the guy around here who insisted that God was going to intervene with miracles to stop the 2010 World Cup happening in South Africa? And who kept on insisting even after it was all quite clearly going ahead without the pitches dying off or players being struck blind?

This thread just reminded me of him for some reason. He was the most determinedly willing punchbag and prolific denier of reality. Well, I say the most. He's not without competition.

The FCC did not warn; it reminded stations. And it wasn't about interference with emergency broadcasts; it was about accessibility by persons with disabilities.

He will be always asserting us that some vague unspecified surprise is coming in near future.

It, of course, will never come.
