    It would have saved us if we had done something like thrown all the leaders in prison. We didn't.

      The finks aren't unprecedented -- they've always been there (No Nothings, Klan, John Birch, Tea Party). What is unprecedented is they took over a major party, and nobody in that party fought them, they laid down in cowardice. And so now in additional to that insane clown posse of maybe 10% of the country, they also have the unthinking 33% who will vote R no matter what because durr, like our R posters here. Never mind that those folks will also get boned eventually too for being insufficiently pure.
      Some of us aren't surprised...some of us were warned to watch out from this cause we tend to be the scapegoated.

        Hey now...Merrick Garland is very concerned!

        The 1/6 Committee should subpoena Trump and force Garland to charge him when he refuses to show.

          Blame that ***** Garland for that. They're more afraid of what will happen if they throw them in prison then what will happen if they don't.

                That presentation is nuts. It violates all sorts of election laws and Constitutional laws. There is not a part of it that would have been legit and the SC would have told them no. Christ they wanted to scan every ballot and put it on the internet so anyone could see it. Dangerous and stupid don't even begin to describe that.

                This was the final step in the plan. When 10 days didn't get them the result they wanted (or wasn't enough time) and they risked President Pelosi they would have declared the election null and void and ended the Democracy. That is not pearl clutching, that isn't paranoia it is just a fact. They would have had the National Guard and the US Marshalls in every major city ready to go since they would have been part of the count. All power was in the hands of 3 people Trump, Pence and the Astronaut. (are you ****ing kidding me) They would have defied Congress and the Supremes, declared Martial Law and occupied every state. Half would capitulate right away since they voted for Trump anyways and obviously are fine with authoritarianism and the Blue States would riot. Michael Flynn's brother (who might be in trouble for lying to Congress) would have been in a position to do what Michael never did and the Pentagon would have helped as well.

                Quit being hysterical. Hovey says this is totally normal, and, since it didn't work, nothing to be concerned about.

                Anybody who lost an election would have done the same thing. Lets stop looking to the past, and start moving forward. Bygones.

                  It’s going to save democracy, not ruin it. It’ll be studied in history books decades from now. Susan Collins will write the foreword.
                  Also, Hovey will still be wildly successful in a backsliding democracy. Hell, most of us probably will be. Where we pretend to care (in Hovey’s mind), he doesn’t, which makes him morally superior, or something.

                  • Scooby that is about Fraud at the Trump Org...and it will go nowhere when it comes to him. In fact he will likely blame his kids and his accountant.

                      Exactly. I say it all the time I am a White Middle Class Suburbanite Republicans do nothing but help me. (outside of the Jew thing but I can hide that if I have to) When Democracy falls I won't be the one suffering, my girlfriends students and their families will be.

                        Yeah, I know. At least somebody is trying. Who knew until Jan 6th that you could commit treason against the United States out in the open and get away with it?

                            It's a little early for everyone here to be drinking, and starting the heavy narcotics, even for a Thursday.
                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
