To Hell With Those Guys…

He’s a tricky bastard…
He tricked a group of people into believing he was probably a pretty good business man, though nearly every business he ever started failed…
He tricked a smaller group of people into believing that he might make a competent president even though he lacked the experience or skills for the job…
He tricked a still smaller group of people into believing he was doing the job well – but spent the vast majority of his time watching television, playing golf, and sowing division and discontent…
He tricked a still smaller group of people into believing that people marching for justice were the bad guys and the people marching against justice were the good guys – then heaped praise on the true bad guys…
He tricked a still smaller group of people into believing he hadn’t done what he did in Ukraine – then convinced them someone else had done that very thing…
He tricked and even smaller group of people into believing a worldwide pandemic was a non-event, then that nothing could be done about it – and then played golf while (so far) 367,652 Americans died…
He tricked an even smaller group of people into believing the 2020 election would be, had been, and then was “rigged” and encouraged his loyalists to fight back and “stop the steal” – despite lacking evidence…
He tricked an even smaller group of people into sending their hard-earned money to the self-described master negotiator billionaire to fund lawsuits – then filed only frivolous suits and pocketed most of the money…
He tricked an even smaller group of people to come to Washington DC on January 6th to attend one last rally – that will certainly prove to have been a “super-spreader” event…
He tricked a smaller group of people to march on the US Capitol building, telling them he’d be with them – then he went home, in typical cowardly-trump fashion, and watched the whole thing play out on television…
He tricked an even smaller group of people into insurrection and committing felonies that carry at least a 10 year sentence – then insulted, denounced, and renounced those who did as he asked…
Now, finally, he sits, isolated, in his metaphorical bunker with only the last of his loyalist sycophants to pander to him – leaving nothing but wreckage, carnage, and death in his wake…

Tantrums…
I’ve heard more than once since the attempted coup (mostly from the right) that impeaching the dumbass again would only inflame the radicalized right. What, you mean as opposed to any other time? The radicalized right is already inflamed and they’re going to remain inflamed as long as the conservative media bubble is allowed to continue infuriating and radicalizing conservatives.

Here’s what I know; no parent surrenders to the tantrums of a brat without creating a huge, ugly monster. The adults in the room need to do the right thing even if tantrums ensue. Donald Trump fomented insurgency and instigated an insurrection. Five people died as a direct result of his actions and bidding. If that’s not a high crime and misdemeanor, none exist. He MUST be impeached. He MUST be held to account.

If more of the radicalized right wants to learn about prison from the inside, I’m sure they can be accommodated…

Oh, the Constitution…
Here’s a little bit from that Constitution cons are always pretending they love so much. This is from the 14th Amendment, Section 3:
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial office of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

I mention it because there are a LOT of Republicans – sworn members of Congress – who supported this action. Sure they’re trying to run away from their support now but they did what they did and they should be censured, then removed. In fact, if I got to choose (I don’t) I would manage the order of operations this way: First thing Monday morning the House votes to remove every member who supported the coup attempt, then introduce the Article of Impeachment.

Sure, the radicalized right would whine and scream that their voices are being removed. Yep. They are. You want to argue politics? Fine. You want to advance ludicrous positions? Great. You want to foment violent insurrection against the Congress of the United States of America? You’re out. Period. It really IS that simple…

Proudly Not Responsible…
I’ve noticed many on the right are SO proud of their actions – they’re blaming other people. The party of personal responsibility won’t take responsibility for what they did. Frankly, I don’t think they’re worth arguing with beyond pointing out that I support the arrest and conviction of EVERY person shown to have participated in the insurrection, politics and party affiliation notwithstanding. If Antifa was there they should go to jail right along with the moron cons who shot video and took photos of themselves trashing the US Capitol.

Plan Your Sedition in Private…
Speaking of whining, NOW the cons are out whining that their favorite meeting place in social media – the site knows as “Parler” – is being taken off-line. Google has already removed the app from it’s play store. Apple said they’re going to do the same Monday if Parler doesn’t get it’s oversight act together. And Amazon, who hosts the site, has declared that the site violates it’s terms of service and have said they won’t host the site anymore. Why, it’s getting to the point where hardworking, honest, America-hating conservative traitors have no social media outlets available to plan their various coups, rebellions, and/or attempted assassinations…
