Trump Needs to be Prosecuted for Jan 6th

Trump Attorney: Prosecuting Trump for Jan 6th Not in the “best interests of the country”

When CNN spoke to several attorneys regarding Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony before the Jan. 6th Committee, one of those attorneys was Ty Cobb who represented Trump in the Mueller investigation.

While Cobb believes Trump definitely committed crimes, he doesn’t believe he should be prosecuted for them. From CNN:

Ty Cobb doesn't think Trump should be tried for the insurrection“Here there are many damning facts,” said Cobb, who pointed to Hutchinson’s testimony that Trump knew his supporters were armed on January 6, riled them up, then appeared to concur with them chanting to hang the vice president as worthy of prosecutors’ attention. If that “isn’t insurrection, I don’t know what is,” he said Wednesday. 

Now, I’m not sure exactly what Mr. Cobb considers enough of a crime to put an ex-President in jail but, I guess this ain’t it:

“I am not convinced prosecuting Trump is in the best interests of the country in the long term”

Jan 6th rioters erected a noose

Donald Trump agreed with his minions that Pence should have been hung.

If anyone EVER deserved jail for the Jan 6th insurrection, it is Donald Trump. Trump began lying to his supporters even before the 2020 election, and to this day has not stopped beating the “stolen election” drum. Elected Republicans echoed the lie. GOP-led states conducted multiple recounts looking for evidence, they found none. Almost two years later many Republicans are still perpetuating these falsehoods. His voting base believed Donald Trump. They answered his call to stop the certification of the election, resulting in the death of one supporter. Trump knew they were committing crimes; he watched it all unfold within the security of the White House.

Perhaps the best evidence that Trump knowingly committed crimes himself? Fox “News” is refusing to air the Jan 6th hearings. Thankfully, many of their viewers are watching the hearings anyway.

What About the Poor Saps that Took Part in the Insurrection?

As for those who foolishly believed Trump and went to the Capitol on Jan 6th, according to Insider:

 … at least 874 people have been arrested and charged with crimes. … [Insider also provides] … the names, charges, links to court documents, and links to additional stories of all the people charged so far. We’re keeping it updated as the Department of Justice releases more names and info.

Donald Trump has not visited them or offered to help pay for attorneys for them. Why should his voters pay for this crime against America but not Donald Trump himself? Trump has gotten away with mowing down “the little guy” his entire life. He even allegedly insulted his supporters as they rioted in the Capitol:

Trump is quoted as having said: “This looks terrible. This is really bad. Who are these people? These aren’t our people, these idiots with these outfits…”

Trump is also reported to have referred to his supporters as “the great unwashed”…

Trump is Not the Only One Who Should Face the Consequences

Additional players in this assault on the Constitution included members of Congress and state legislators, they should see jail time too.

This insurrection was fueled by a GOP Congress that cut its own backbone out for Donald Trump to mount on his wall. They remain silent to this dayon perhaps the greatest assault on our democracy They do not deserve to be anywhere near government.

Peggy Noonan’s Warped Idea of Love of Country

In a recent Wall Street Journal column, Peggy Noonan “cuts the baby in half” so to speak. On one hand, she admits Donald Trump is not fit to be President. On the other, possibly fearing “Trumpers” wrath, she fawns:

Peggy NoonanI start with the obvious. I never meet Americans who love America more than Trump people do. They really love it—its history, what it means in the world, what it’s done. It has not always been a fully thought-through love but it’s generally fully felt, and at a time when not everybody bothers to feel such allegiance and gratitude it is admirable.

Ms. Noonan attempts to straddle the line between Right-Wing talking points and coddling the most dangerous groups in America. It’s insulting. These people call themselves Patriots, they’re not. They’re violent Nationalists, the antithesis of loving America.

Love of country isn’t flag patches on every piece of clothing you own or giant flags on your pickup truck.

Love of country isn’t calling for the Vice President of the United States to be hanged.

Love of country isn’t putting your fellow citizens at risk over a minor inconvenience.

Love of country isn’t threatening elected representatives and their families with death.

Love of country isn’t blind hatred of Americans who don’t look or think like you.

“Trumpers” have always longed for a country that never was and fantasized about a country that hopefully never will be. They continue to follow Trump blindly as he takes their money and laughs all the way to the bank. They refuse to entertain the idea that they’ve been suckered even as the pile of evidence grows higher.

For this reason, the right’s “love of country” die-hards will continue to support him likely claiming fraud against their own party should he lose the primary. By electing Trump and continuing “the big lie” Republicans have increased the number of  “angry white guys” Lindsey Graham longed for. The genie’s out of the bottle, there’s no going back.

Victim’s Family Calls For 25th Amendment

The 25th Amendment Won’t Fix Everything

Rosanne Boyland, a resident of Kennesaw, Georgia, was one of those who died during Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol. Brother-in-law Justin Cave called for the 25th Amendment in a recent interview:

“It is my own personal belief that the President’s words and rhetoric incited a riot last night that killed four of his biggest fans and I believe that we should invoke the 25th amendment.”

I’m saddened by the deaths of all five individuals at Wednesday’s riot. I’m saddened that so many people could believe so many lies. I’m saddened that it was so easy to whip the crowd into a mob.

the 25th amendment won't stop the mob

Ms. Boyland made a decision to travel to the capital as did the others. We’ve now seen what conspiracy theories and denying facts can bring about. Yes, the guy in the White House incited it, but every individual made a conscious choice to join the mob or not. That decision is what killed Ms. Boyland.

Meanwhile, Trump watched the riot from his safe space, denigrating his supporters as “low class” and “white trash“. That vile, despicable excuse for a human being is what Roseanne Boyland gave her life for. That’s the saddest thing of all.

Trump Voters’ Threads and Comments Are Ignorant, But Entertaining

Trump Voters’ Minds

possible trump voters deskEveryday across the country, in their parents’ basements, thousands of Trump voters type furiously away at their computers. In rooms likely plastered with tin foil, they participate in threads that are stupefying displays of ignorance. And hypocrisy. And denial.

Their gushing, over-the-top fervor for all things Trump is both comical and sad. They hate Liberals, Obama, Democrats, and even some Republicans. They mock others for not knowing what they know, which is, well… nothing really.

The Threads of Ignorance

Take these thread posts at Free Republic, regarding Trump’s new helipad at Mar-a-Lago:

ROFL“I don’t mind Trump has meetings and golfs there, because he is working and meeting and golfing with various officials.

Obama would golf with his pals…”

So it’s no longer about how often the President plays golf, now it’s about who he golfs with. Gotcha. Only, Japanese PM Shinzo Abe is the only leader he’s golfed with since the election. He has played with Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer, former Yankee Paul O’Neill, Ernie Els, and Lexi Thompson.  What happened to “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf”?

“Our solution-minded president solving another issue.”

Yes, an issue of personal convenience.

bag o idiots“We are paying for this. Obama is still riding around in Secret Service SUVs and who knows what else he’s still using.”

Someone needs to tell Einstein about The Former Presidents Act (FPA; 3 U.S.C. § 102)

“Has Trump taken off one full day yet?”

“I hope so. Too much work and no downtime isn’t healthy.”

Unless you’re Barack Obama I guess. Has Trump taken one full day off? You mean the Trump who thinks being President is a Monday through Friday job?

Trump’s Great Sacrifices

At the site “Liberty Writers“, a headline screams: “URGENT: Donald Trump Just Sacrificed Something UNBELIEVABLE For Our Country!”

What did he sacrifice, according them? 

Donald Trump revealed today that since winning the office of President he has sacrificed BILLIONS of dollars for his country!!

Trump told Chris Wallace that in the last week alone he gave up over one billion dollars in business deals from power players trying to buy in before he takes office.

insultNow that right there is pretty admirable. Donald Trump, America’s celebrity billionaire, cares so much about this country that he said to Hell with the money to keep us safe.

This guy is great. He really does love our country. Let’s return that love and post this message all over Facebook for the world to see!!

Nauseating. Either Trump voters don’t know, or don’t care that Trump funneled $12.8 million in campaign funds to his relatives and properties.

As for “giving up billions of dollars”, he has so far failed to prove he is divested from his businesses. At the same time, as Medium points out:

When Trump stays at Mar-a-Lago, Secret Service and other staff members need to be very close by. This means that they will be staying at the high-end resort too. Since they are not staying there for free— they will be paying full rate — Mar-a-Lago is collecting a substantial windfall every time the president takes a vacation there.

If Trump goes anywhere in the world and stays at his properties — and remember, he brags about owning premier properties worldwide — Secret Service and staff will be forced to stay there as well. That will enable Donald Trump to profit even more.

Trump’s Miraculous Month

Then there was this thread, about a post written by “The dumbest man on the internet”, Jim Hoft: “Amazing! Trump Cuts US Debt By $12 Billion In His First Month“. First comment out of the gate:

stupid burnsThe next time I hear msm and the liberal communist whining about the cost of security for POTUS and his family. I’ll just tell them when he spends what he saved his first month in office, then you can cry, But until then STHU.

I’m not sure which is worse: That Trump voters STILL don’t know the difference between Communism and Socialism, or that they have no idea that their savior is actually in bed with Communists.

About that $12 Billion BS: Dan Mitchell, a libertarian economist and senior fellow at the Cato Institute, told Politifact:

 “Considering that Trump hasn’t enacted any fiscal legislation, it’s a bit of a stretch for him to take credit for any changes in debt levels.” 

“Debt levels go up and down in the short run based on independent factors such as quarterly tax payments and predetermined expenditure patterns.”

This next yuck yuck just can’t see the irony…

“What can one man, without a cabinet in place, do? I would say he’s doing what he can without help from anyone—including our Congress.”

Wonder why they didn’t feel that way about… aw, nevermind.
