    She is correct. I was looking at Twitter last night and most of what I saw was the crazy left wanting everyone who was in DC on Wednesday arrested and charged with treason and murder. It was hard to find any Conservative voices.

    • Constance says:

      Sounds like a nut house. I wonder who the self righteous Leftists will persecute next having purged the Conservatives. Will they start having purity contests? Yes they will, Virtue Signalling is all they know.

      They are already on Parler chastising Conservatives!… as much as I want them to go away, it does fuel Parler’s (and Gab’s ) member numbers.

      I don’t think Libs have the capacity to get bored. You have to be fairly intelligent to experience boredom. Remember when you find yourself surrounded by idiot Libs, half the population is dumber than average.

    Kellyanne distancing herself from Trump. Although she does praise him for things he accomplished, she also says he exhausted all legal avenues and no massive fraud was found. Hey Kellyanne, it won’t work. Read your comments, the left still wants you dead.

    • DeniseVB says:

      With ten days left I’m not sure why the righties are turning on PDJT with their “statements” which just sound like career saving hail marys. I wish Lin Wood didn’t go so crazy that now he can’t help us sue the tech companies out of existence.

      • elliesmom says:

        There isn’t a court in this country that will put the tech giants out of business. Maybe impose a few fines they can pay out of their pocket change to virtue signal. I suspect Lin Wood knows that better than just about anyone, and so he’s chosen to stand in front of the tank.

      • 1539days says:

        I’m not really surprised about this. Some of the people supporting Trump were doing so because dropping their support would mean retaliation by the president and supporters, so they continued to talk a good game. Now they think Trump can no longer do anything to them and they want to thread the needle and criticize him for “violence” to try saving their political punidtry careers.

      • Constance says:

        These statements from the Right also sound like hostage statements and the people giving them look like hell.

    Brought up from downstairs because I took too long to write this too long comment, and Denise moved the party. 😉

    I’m glad to hear Parler is going to find a new home and has so many new customers, but that they have found themselves in this predicament in the first place speaks to their lack of both technical and political sophistication. If you want to set up a “resistance” to one of the tech giants, you don’t move into the business of one of their tech giant buddies to stage your coup. The people running Parler are either really not ready for primetime, or they have a jester in their midst deliberately steering them to make freshman mistakes. Like the senior who convinces gullible freshmen there’s a pool on the roof of the school.

    As to boycotts of places like Amazon- when you ask people to boycott a business because you don’t like how they do business or who they support, each person weighs whether the hardship participating in the boycott will cause the business being boycotted enough pain to justify their own. If there are two doughnut shops in town, a boycott of one of them might make the shop owner take notice or even put him out of business. If the next closest doughnut shop is 10 miles away, a few people might drive that far to get a doughnut, and given that doughnuts are not essential, a few more might pass on eating doughnuts for awhile, but the vast majority of the doughnut shop’s customers will remain customers. Absent any real competition, and so necessary for survival to so many people, a boycott of Amazon won’t be successful enough to keep Bezos from sleeping on a mattress full of money every night, and it won’t make him change his mind about how he does business. Have you noticed any changes at Netflix? Any movies or programs removed for cause?

    If you decide to boycott Amazon, you need to know all of the businesses you’d need not to buy from. As someone who lives in an area where Amazon does all of its own deliveries, I can tell you Walmart makes big use of Amazon. Pretty much anything I order from Walmart that won’t fit in my mailbox gets delivered to me by Amazon. A lot of the small businesses on places like etsy use Amazon for a selling platform and to deliver. The bigger question is not how you’re going to boycott Amazon, but what are you going to do if Amazon decides to boycott you?

    • taw46 says:

      Wow, I missed all of this last night. I had to go back and read to catch up. It doesn’t matter if Parler finds a new hosting service, there are people who are pressuring the domain registrar to remove their domain name as well as Gab’s. If they are successful, no one will be able to “see” their servers. I just don’t know how you fight this. 😢

      • elliesmom says:

        People managed to communicate before the internet existed. If conservatives are pushed that far, they will push back. We won’t have to go back as far as women hanging colored underwear on the clothesline to indicate they have a message for a courier, but even that’s an option if things get really bad. The pen might be mightier than the sword, but if all the pens are taken away, people can still write with swords. It just requires the spilling of some blood to get the ink.

        • votermom says:

          “The pen might be mightier than the sword, but if all the pens are taken away, people can still write with swords. It just requires the spilling of some blood to get the ink.”
          That is really good

          as to DNS banning – two options – again set up your own DNS – if that is banned too then just give your users the actual ip address of your dnsi
          another likely scenario is they pressure your internet access company to firewall off those sites as bad / terrorist / malware

      • 1539days says:

        This is essentially what happened to Charles Johnson. His site was pulled off all the search engines to the point where you had to type in the URL directly. Even if you set up your own ISP or server, the actual fiber that runs across the country has to be leased and big telecom effectively owns that.

      • Constance says:

        Remember Harry Potter and how they communicated through AM radio?

    • Mothy67 says:

      I know my dropping Amazon would have no effect. It would be a loss of convenience as well as more expensive. I do wish there was an alternative though. I never order things over 100 from them anymore. Paypal lets you pay anything over 99 over 6 months interest free directly from merchant.

    • votermom says:

      you are right about Parler – did they not see what was done to Gab sunce founded?
      – kicked off rented servers so now they manage their own
      – refused service by credit card companies
      – app banned from apple and google
      but the Gab founder and his core ppl are stubborn and very techy, so gab is still standing

    • DeniseVB says:

      So glad you moved it ! By the time I check the draft queue to make sure myiq isn’t ready to launch a post, then find a post starting picture, then make sure it posted before I put the new thread up warning……….you were typing 😀

      I know I won’t be boycotting Amazon, I never do that to a company that still provides me good service and products. So far the only idiots doxxing Trump supporters are those insufferable NeverTrumpers at Project Lincoln hoping to make us unemployable or starve to death or something. Of course, the liberal haters have the glees and pushing their message. How far will Bezos go? I know private companies have the right to refuse service, yada, yada, but are still forced to bake wedding cakes for gay couples, even if you’re not the only bakery in town? Following the woke rules is hard 😀

      • taw46 says:

        Here in the Keys, we do not have big box stores, we do not have malls filled with department stores. We only have small shops, mostly targeted to tourists and the wealthy who live here. So, if you want/need things, you have to order online. Amazon is the big one. There are a lot of people across the US who live in small communities and rely on Amazon.

        • Somebody says:

          That’s how Amelia Island is Taw, but just off the island we have lots of big box stores. It wasn’t always that way, it started about 15 years ago with Walmart, in the past 5-6 years just about everything has appeared.

          I know, I know, no comparison between the Keys. We just have one small bridge over the intracoastal 😉

          Even though we have all these stores, I still order a lot of things online via Amazon. I’ve been shopping at Amazon since their early days when they mostly sold books. I was an original prime member. It’s convenient and quite often there are more choices than what I find locally or the price is better.

          Not to mention Jacksonville should be renamed Amazonville. There are currently 6 distribution centers, a 7th is almost complete or may be by now. An 8th is in the works, I recently read about another one in the area but it’s so close to 7 and 8, I’m not sure if it’s one of those or a 9th. Jax is a port city, plus major rail lines, major interstates, big distribution centers for major shippers, big distribution centers for various companies. Logistics is what JAX is known for.

          What that means is I can order all kinds of stuff on Amazon and it’s at my door a couple of hours later. At the most I get it the next day. If I buy from a marketplace vendor it might take a couple of days, but from Amazon itself no. My daughter in NC calls it my port city privilege🤣 At the height of lockdown, I was still getting stuff, she had to wait weeks for stuff if she got it at all they canceled several orders. She had me order the same thing and send it to her. That’s when she dubbed it port city privilege. We took pictures of the JAX port and taunted her, of course we took pictures of people living in freedom and taunted her too😉

          • taw46 says:

            That’s how I started with Amazon many years ago, ordering books. I still prefer to go in a bookstore and look around, but if I know what I want, Amazon it is.

      • elliesmom says:

        “Buycotts” work because they’re fun to do. Let’s all go buy a chicken sandwich and make it the chains’ biggest day ever! Boycotts are usually more painful for the people doing the boycotting than for the subject of the boycott so they usually fail.

        Quick story- there were two independent pattern designers who design patterns for lingerie. One of the ladies was a bit on the pudgy side, and the other looked anorexic. Miss Skinny got a few of her friends to flood the other one’s site with negative comments about fat girls and sexy lingerie. Several folks wanted to stage a boycott of Skinny’s small company. But a friend and I knew Miss Pudge had far better patterns, and that’s really the point. It’s not her body that’s going to be in your nightgown. So we pulled a free pattern from her shop and each made a “Special Valentine’s Day” outfit for those of us staying home. My date was going to be halfway around the world on a business trip. It was for the most comfortable pair of pjs you could possibly make. We went online with a pic of what we had made a week before Valentine’s Day with a “lament” about what to wear when you have no date. Her site was flooded with requests for the free pattern, and once you made one of her patterns, there was no going back to Miss Skinny.

        That was over 10 years ago, and Miss Pudge’s shop is still going strong, and I have no idea where Miss Skinny is. (I still get to shop for free in Miss Pudge’s online store. 🙂 ) Just as positive reinforcement works better to discipline kids, positive forces in the marketplace do more to get rid of bad companies. Small businesses who promote themselves do better than the ones who trash Amazon. Parler needs to work on making itself better than Twitter. Facebook put MySpace out of business by being better.

        • Mothy67 says:

          But, but, but Chik-fil-a — didn’t they eventually cave and donate a bunch of money to lefty causes?

          • Jentx says:

            Yes they did and the CEO who is the son of the man who started it said and I quote white people should get on their hands and knees and shine black people choose for what they did but you’ll notice he is doing none of that fuck him

          • elliesmom says:

            My point wasn’t that a buycott always gets you what you want. It’s that people are more likely to join in on them. You can boycott Amazon if it makes you feel better, but you aren’t going to get enough people on board unless there’s an alternative that offers them the same service at a competitive price for Amazon to even notice. People are not going to run all over town in the middle of a pandemic to get what they can get delivered to their door for the same or better price. They’re not much more likely to do it sans the pandemic. Boycotts are mostly virtue signaling, and only your mother cares about your virtue.

      • Constance says:

        I try to ask before I order Amazon. How can I buy this local from a small business. But I drive a small car so I do Amazon stuff that won’t fit in my car. Also how do all those climate zealots feel about all the packing and cardboard Amazon causes. It’s worth it to me to buy local and not have to deal with the cardboard recycling.

        • lateblum says:

          There are a few climate zealots in my extended fam. They don’t (usually) buy from Amazon. But I’d venture to guess they spend gas and money going to/from stores to get what they want. Here we have a very busy/active city economic development org. They have implemented several incentives to get people to shop locally. I try to do that as much as I can. The shops are often owned by friends or neighbors who especially now, really do offer a personal shopping experience., and really do need the business. I’ve worked in more than a few of these shops while in grad school and early in my divorce. So I know how hard they work and how they are – for the most part – a very necessary piece of the town’s economic life.
          That said, I do buy from Amazon when I cannot get what I’m looking for “in town”. Even some of the big box stores that are on the edge of the town either do not have or cannot get even some basic things like ink cartridges before I can get them through Amazon. So I do use it. Now that I think about it, there is a large Amazon distribution center only minutes away from my home. That quite possibly explains the delivery times here.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            I am really torn about this. I shop A LOT and spend a shitload of money on Amazon, because I have lost all my sympathy for the local retailers who just sat back and took it when the government shut them down and did fuck-all other than asking “please sir can I have some more?” government money, and I have no interest in going into town when I’m forced to wear a mask even on the empty streets and I can’t stop for a cup of coffee even because even OUTSIDE DINING has been 100% banned since october.

            If the commercants wanted my support, they should have fought back against this bullshit. And don’t even get me started about our local government’s war on cars, which has made it increasingly difficult to even get to downtown and let’s not even talk about how much parking has been taken away or the fact that they just installed surveillance cameras all over downtown to automatically ticket anybody who parks too long and the local businesses didn’t say boo about that either.

            But I also like free speech.

            So basically I’m still trying to buy everything online, but I either go to Etsy or to companies’ individual websites.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Agree. This is backend 101 and malpractice on Parlers part. Kind of pathetic. But matches their horrible UI. Seriously, there should be a law… Anyway, they have no one to blame but themselves for not being ready for this. Doesn’t excuse AWS of course, but still. And by the way, have redundant layers outside the US as well. Duh.

    • r u reddy says:

      I think people who suggest boycotting Amazon are thinking of ” Amazon the Platform”.
      If a business has a brick-and-mortar presence and/or an other-than-Amazon internet presence and/or an Amazon presence, then buying from that business at the brick-and-mortar location or from the other-than-Amazon website at least keeps your money away from Amazon itself.

      If one can go to Walmart to pick up the item in person, at least one can deny Amazon the money it would have made by charging Walmart to deliver that item to one’s home. And since Dr. Evil Jeff’s goal is to exterminate every single other business on the face of the earth until Amazon is the only business even existing, any money spent at a non-Amazon business can help that non-Amazon business survive in the teeth of Dr. Evil Jeff’s evil goal.

      The world is an impure place and there may be no such thing as a pure boycott. But there can still be a semicott. And it may not be just about hurting Dr. Evil Jeff. It may also be about preserving some measure of business and making-a-living choice in the world against Jeff’s desire to take every last shred of choice away.

    The thing about Parler is once the inauguration is in the rear view mirror how much interest will there be in day to day politics. I will never invest myself again. My vote does not matter. Nothing can convince me xiden won. I do not live in a country with fair elections.

    • elliesmom says:

      In politics there’s always “the next thing”. We might not know what it is yet, but there will be something.

      • Mothy67 says:

        It has never been as rivetting, for me, as the last few years. I now know no matter my voice only counts if the ptb say it does. I wish I had saved all that money over the years. I am only paying attention for the next few weeks. I have moved on to hating some of these people. It’s not worth my energy.

        • Constance says:

          I find it interesting the shift in topic from people trying to get me to send money to their political cause. One shifted to “Help Vet Get Back To Being Better” send money. They are trying the same list of causes FOX News is trying. One sent me a survey asking which topics are most important to me in the year to come…with a bunch of Republican crap I don’t care about but no place to list Rigged Elections as my most important topic. They are trying hard to gin up political interest. But I find my only interest is rigged election of 2020 and how to prevent them. Or I also like discussions of the Parasitic class of third generation trust funders who are inbred and Ivy indoctrinated and how to eliminate them. But I haven’t found my forum for those topics yet.

  12. Mothy67 says:

    Someone dumped a bunch of something that looks like mulch inside my front door. Wierd it’s enclosed and there is a heavy storm door. I do wonder if my freakshow neighbor is trying some wicken voodoo shit. Strange guy.

    • Mothy67 says:

      The truth does not matter to the left.

    • taw46 says:

      Helen, others have pointed that out. But the Trump haters don’t care, they are out to crucify Trump. But the lawyers can use it as a defense in an impeachment trial, although it won’t matter when they vote.

      I know all of that to be true, because I watched his speech on Wednesday. It was to start at 11:00 and I wondered why it was an hour late. And then he spoke for over an hour, delaying the march to the Capitol. I noticed all of that.

      • John Denney says:

        I wonder if he knew the timeline of antifa & other bad actors was based on his projected timeline, and so delayed an hour to throw off their timeline and/or make them obvous.

        • taw46 says:

          That’s what some people think. I was very curious as to why he was an hour late, then spoke so long. Because it was way past the pre-scheduled time for the group to be at the Capitol.

      • lateblum says:

        I, too know the truth makes no difference to the haters. Yesterday my son came over and we touched on the “Capitol siege”. He blamed Giuliani as well as the Trump tweets and comments from the past few weeks and when I pointed out that there was a big challenge e/t the timeline of when the speech ended and when the attack took place, he became so enraged that he said “I want him imprisoned for the rest of his life for what he’s done to this country!” He then stormed out saying he was not bringing “the girls” over today for my birthday. . . or maybe ever again. He, his wife, her entire family, and most of this town are so blinded by brainwashing and hatred. It’s really bad.

        • Gram Kraken says:

          I am so sorry that your son is treating you this way, and especially about denying you and your granddaughters the pleasure of celebrating your birthday together. So much for the party of inclusion and diversity of thought. When he and his wife need you to take care of the girls again, they will probably dane to let you see them if you promise not to corrupt them with your right-wing white supremacy propaganda.

          I sincerely hope that you are still able to somehow enjoy your birthday. You are a good person who has served your community and family well.

      This is one reason I believe Trump will come back with a thunder of a last act. The Left is in full display of their lack of character right now so there can be no mistaking that they plan to pursue Trump and his family and acquaintances to stomp him in the ground. Knowing that there is no reason for him to simply hand them the keys and walk away although that could have been an option. They really leave him no option but to smear their greasy bodies all over the pavement. So pretty sure that is coming. And these Leftists aren’t acting like the freely chosen winners. They’re frantic.

    Language warning

  22. 1539days says:

    This is not for everyone, but I encourage people to use cash whenever possible. Other than the whole “government tracking you” thing with credit cards, the reality is that between you and the store, there are a bunch of companies who have their hands out taking a fraction of a cent from a billion transactions and getting rich from it.

    Also, any site that allows credit cards for subscriptions / donations can be subject to being banned by credit card companies that decide they don’t like them.

    • votermom says:

      an option for online buying is buy a visa / amex etc gift card from the local retailer with cash

      • elliesmom says:

        They’re still getting their money. Bank gift cards have large service fees when you buy them. I am friendly with the fellow who owns the local liquor store. I went in one day when his credit card company link was down. I didn’t have enough cash so I said I’d come back later. He encouraged me to pay him by check anytime I wanted to. He wasn’t worried about my check bouncing because everytime I used my debit card the sale went through. The money the banks and third party entity gets instead of the business is on a scale based on risk. The more risk the merchant shoulders, the bigger the chunk of the sale he gets to keep. Cash is a no risk sale, but people spend less. A check is the largest risk to the merchant. The credit card sale is the largest risk to the bank or credit card company.

        • 1539days says:

          I keep an emergency $20 (probably should go to $50) bill for when I forget to reload my wallet. It’s folded up in another compartment. I use it maybe once every couple of years.

          • elliesmom says:

            I have a separate checking account that’s linked to a debit card. I only keep enough money in at a time to cover any shopping I want to do. If someone hacks the card, there isn’t enough money in the account to make much of a purchase. It doesn’t matter if my limit on the card is high if the money to cover the purchase isn’t in the account. If I want to use the card to buy something expensive, I move the money into the account just before I use it. Because I have larger accounts at the same bank, the account is free. It was suggested to me by my bank after someone charged thousands of dollars to my bank credit card. I use the debit card to buy all of the things I might charge to a credit card and pay the bill right away, and I only use the credit card when I really need it to be a credit card.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I have a friend who uses all store gift cards. She gets grocery perks for buying them up to 20%. She claims it saves her big.

        • 1539days says:

          Which is all BS. The rewards are because the stores like getting the money up front (along with accruing interest) and those minor kickbacks make customers feel like they’re special. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

          • Mothy67 says:

            Instead of using her debit card at Amazon she buys a100 dollar gift card from the grocery store and uses her loyalty card. She gets double points for gift card purchases. You can use up to 20% off your total grocery bill. She waits until she is doing a big order say 250 so she gets 50 off her grocery order that she wouldn’t get. She was making the amazon order anyhow. There is no additional cost with an Amazon or best buy. Saving 50 on 250 works for me.

      They think Trump supporters are coming to DC January 20th to disrupt the inauguration with a real Insurrection. That’s why the troops are there. The only people they will be arresting are patriots, should any show up.

      • Somebody says:

        I don’t think Trump supporters should go within 100 miles of DC on the 20th. DJT is not going to the inauguration, nor is he going to speak. If Trump supporters want to show support for Trump go to Palm Beach, congregate outside the airport, line the roadways. If they show up in DC the media will claim they are there for Joe. If they have on Trump gear they’ll be arrested for disorderly conduct at a minimum, possibly insurrection. No, no, no, go to Florida. It’s warmer and it’s open, so you’ll enjoy freedom.

        As an aside, the optics of all the troops lining the streets for Joe’s inaugural will fit right in with the coup d’etat

        • elliesmom says:

          I agree. Be a welcoming party instead of a going away one.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Sounds good to me, West Palm Beach in January would be heaven 😀 I wouldn’t dare go near DC with a Trump hat on Inauguration Day now that we’ve been promoted to domestic terrorists. Sigh. Trump supporters aren’t going away, it wasn’t always about him, but he did give us permission to love our country and each other while having a lot of fun when we got together.

        • 1539days says:

          That’s probably just as well. Democrats don’t care if law enforcement die because they are undermanned and a melee breaks out. This week they had to find a bunch of police who died from strokes and heart attacks after a protester was killed. The ideal narrative is that a bunch of Trump supporters injure innocent law enforcement, not that police mow down dozens of protesters.

      • Constance says:

        I’m pretty sure only Trump could be ordering the military into DC as of now. He wouldn’t be doing it to go after Deplorables.

        Also, Alan Dershowitz said PDJT would not face impeachment once he was out of office, but Rubio contradicted him saying PDJT could be impeached whether in or out of office. Is it wishful thinking?

          They no longer support by the Constitution. Dersh said impeachment out of office was unconstitutional.

      If Twitter is purging people from their ranks, and lots of people are deactivating their accounts over it, Twitter may be looking at layoffs in the future. Whenever the employees of a tech company get worried about the company’s possible downsizing its workforce, there are people who scramble to get out the door voluntarily before it happens. There’s a strip of highway near Boston that is technology company after technology company, and there used to be a joke that every six months all the engineers pack up and move one building down. Provided they aren’t forced out of business first, companies like Gab, Parler, and maybe Mewe, are going to be looking at quick expansion, which means more jobs quickly, and if there’s a stigma attached to working there, the pay will probably be pretty good so they can attract good people.

  30. taw46 says:

    Lol, they never met with the people. How were they exposed?

    • Constance says:

      good point they did never meet with The People. I’ve got to say the only way I can see unity coming out of this rigged election is to have Congress all come out in MAGA gear holding flags and I will be generous here and give them a choice of the American flag or the Gadsden flag and kneel to MAGA with a photo opp. Then they can stand for a singing of the National Anthem. I would find that healing. For the country of course.

      Funny since I live in a place that can take over most of US airspace traffic control.

    • Constance says:

      Right. Sounds like a load of shit to me. I mean the airspace is likely cleared but not for Covid exposure. But I love the way they are working Covid into what ever is going down.

      • Constance says:

        OK Monkey Werx put up 3 hours ago that he believes the Insurrection Act was signed this morning and President Trump took off for safe hiding. Right after that the airspace was shut down over DC. I wonder how long the Covid excuse will hold off the media. They are all in on the Covid scam. I’m pretty sure that those AWACs planes can control air traffic if they feel like it and I also think the military can block all communication in an area if they feel like it.

      I’ve been a licenses EMT at one time, and breathing in someone’s nostrils was never on our checklist of how to get someone moving.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Of course you were.😀😀😀😀😀

        • elliesmom says:

          My son was a SIDS baby, but I found him not breathing and gave him CPR I had learned in the Girl Scouts, which is one of the reasons I am so fond of the Scouts. They literally taught me how to save my baby’s life. While he was spending the summer at Mass General Hospital, I was getting more and more nervous about bringing him home. They had an EMT training program on site, and his doctor suggested if I completed the training, I would be more comfortable taking him home. So I signed up for the course. The final exam was the licensing test, and I just took it to complete the training. Although I’ve used the training in other situations, I’ve never worked as an EMT professionally. I let the license lapse so I would be covered by Good Samaritan laws and not need to have professional insurance, but I didn’t unlearn what I learned.

          • Mothy67 says:

            It was meant as a compliment. Amazing woman.

          • elliesmom says:

            I took it that way. It just seems to people sometimes that I couldn’t make up my mind what I wanted to be when I grew up, and while that might actually be true on some level, becoming an EMT wasn’t a career move. I have such respect for the people who do it, though. I’m not sure I could handle always being responsible for whether people live or die every time the alarm goes off and the abulance rolls. But learning to drive the ambulance was fun!

          • swanspirit says:

            When I was working in pediatrics, parents of infants with apnea issues, had to go home with an apnea monitor, they were trained to use, and had to be trained in CPR, before the baby could be discharged. I taught both of those routinely, as they were considered discharge training, for any infant, or child with breathing issues.
            If anyone was doing anything to Pedo Joe, they were checking to see if he was still breathing. Nobody went home and got him pillows, they went to the supply room, or maybe another unit, to see if they.had extra pillows. If they were giving him extra pillows, it was to facilitate breathing by raising his head and upper body to a 45° angle.
            If they whispered, it was to see if he was still responsive, lol, so then they could chart, “Responds to verbal stimuli”.

    • 1539days says:

      Yikes. Is that why he breathes on everyone now?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Can someone translate that for me, I really don’t want to watch the video. The go home and get pillows part 😉

What ever bargain they make they won’t keep. His only choice is to destroy all of them and I think that has been his goal from the beginning. Destroy the swamp and restore a government of the people by the people and for the people.

  49. Constance says:

    Here is another thing I can’t make add up. I heard that the data from the Georgia Senate election was transferred to Pakistan and altered to make the Democrats win and this was watched in time by Military intelligence. Then I hear that Pakistan had a massive power outage like has never been seen before that took out all power to the entire country last night. I just wonder if those two things were related.

  50. lyn5 says:

    Yet neither Biden nor Pelosi reckoned with an uncomfortable fact: Sicknick was a Trump supporter himself, as his friend Caroline Behringer announced shortly after his death. Far from sharing the views of the #Resistance, he had written letters to his congressman opposing Trump’s impeachment.

    Like many Trump supporters who are now being censored, he ­believed that the system is fundamentally rigged in favor of a narrow elite. He had used fiery rhetoric, even called for regime change in America.

  51. Mothy67 says:

    For what it’s worth Parler is saying Rudy is saying the storm is coming tomorrow. Like The Mayor, but too many times I’ve hid tick tock.

      I sure hope so. I can’t figure out why they waited this long unless they wanted to give the Dems every opportunity to go full fascist. So probably in a few hours since they would be better off springing into action hours before everyone wakes up. I hope they have Pence and Pelosi in “Protective custody” right now. I wonder how long before the MSM catches on.

    I have not viewed this yet, but it is supposed to be video made Jan 6 in Capitol by Jayden X. The Utah guy John Sullivan and Jayden X are somehow connected. Haven’t figured it out yet but wanted to share. Lots of comments noting self-incriminating criminal behavior. Nearest I can figure from what I have seen on twitter and elsewhere is that BLM, Antifa, and yes, Q showed up early at the Capitol and have a lot of culpability for instigating the breach and leading the mostly naive rally marchers into the Capitol.

    you shouted “you killed her,” when in fact, You all killed her , you carried her with you, you fed and led each other to the door and encouraged and egged each other one, you are responsible, YOU put her in harms way, YOU stood and filmed instead of rendering aid, You clearly enJOYed filming the last minutes of her life and she laid there hearing all the shouting as her life left her. At the end of your life, is that what you would want to hear ? She is also responsible for putting herself in the situation and your video proves she was attacking the police. The police defended themselves, sadly against rioting people

      Interesting for sure. But Leftists can’t have my ear again until they point out how is this any different from the Antifa/BLM/CIA riots this summer. The only difference I can see is the Antifa/BLM/CIA have been destroying our cities and lives and causing death for 10 months and this Patriot mostly peaceful protest lasted hours of one day. If Democrats can’t see their own hypocrisy part of their brain in nonfunctional. The whole world is watching and they see who Democrats are.

      • lateblum says:

        Sadly, though, the Democrats are yelling out the lies that it is the Right who is guilty and they seem to have the ear of MSM. They also have the MSM. And as long as Nanzi Pelosi is still breathing, she will call the shots until they pry the gavel away from her.

      • Gram Kraken says:

        Hypocrisy is a feature of the function of their brain, not a bug. Dems would say BLM/Antifa riots are justified because of ray cist, white supremacist police murdering blacks. The Portland Federal Courthouse building should be destroyed because of ray cist judges imprisoning too many blacks. Federal officers deserve to be blinded by laser pointers. And so on. The DC Capitol building is the only ‘sacred’ Federal building – courthouses and police stations not so much. My daughter says we need a list of exactly which Federal properties are ‘sacred’ and shouldn’t be breached and which ones are OK to Portlandize.

He travels there while telling Illinoisans to stay home, not gather with their families for any holiday, and now wants to tax small business owners for the PPP moneys they will receive to help their businesses. The democrats in this state are not worth the time it took me to write this comment. If it were only possible, I’d move to a red state or at least one with lower taxes.

    More than 6,000 military personnel expected in DC by end of weekend

    WASHINGTON (ABC7) — There will be around 6,200 military personnel in D.C. by the end of the weekend, a massive response to the U.S. Capitol riot from earlier this week.
    Sources tell ABC News National Guard from several states are headed to the Metropolitan Police Department to be sworn in as special police officers. They will then go to the Capitol to be sworn in by U.S. Capitol Police. The sources describe “dozens of buses” headed to D.C.
    The Virginia Nation Guard plans on assisting throughout the Presidential Inauguration.

        Of course there are no riots now and haven’t been since the 6th. There is no inauguration ceremony planned. Democrats are not putting up fences and they don’t command the military yet. Trump has said he won’t go to the nonexistent inauguration in DC so his MAGAs won’t show up to see him. It is very odd that military is building up in DC. But the media are not even curious.
