    Some Democratic lawmakers are calling (again) for the explusion of any members of Congress who were involved in the murderous insurrection.

    They didn't name names. They don't have to. If we have evidence that indicates someone, follow it. And we've been talking enough about the difference between treason and insurrection enough to know both options are serious violations of their oath to office.

    This would be a prime way for McConnell to oust the trumpkin-Republican congresspeople who are denigrating his power and losing his party elections.

    But McConnell has had many avenues to expunge his party of Trump’s foul influence and hadn’t taken any. So I doubt we’ll see anything from the republicans on getting any accountability through here.

    Mass purges by Bitch McConnell would cost his party everything for quite some time, as his people then get primaried and then lose the general.
    He won't throw it all away by doing the right thing. So he'll struggle to get not-so-batshit-crazy fuckers elected despite Trumps best efforts.

    Only if he could somehow do so while pretending he didn't want to. In other words, not a vote. Which...lowers his options. Like you said, he is a craven coward who knows he'll be killed if he tried to impose actual rules and laws we've had for hundreds of years against tyranny and dictators against a carnival clown who needs to pay 2 American's salaries just to get laid.

    If they're actually charged with, and found guilty of, insurrection, then no vote is required. They would immediately be removed and prevented from ever running for public office again.

    Well, here's hoping anyone actually guilty is found such.

    Ousting Trumpkin-Republics does nothing when the Trumpkin voters simply vote in another utter nutjob.

    The GOP's problem is that their base are Confederate crazies unironically shouting "America first" with a hand in the air. And without those people they can't win elections anymore.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Well, shit.

    People were protesting vaccine mandates and someone plowed a truck directly into them. He's arrested on the grounds that he did it on purpose and that's terroism.

    What an asshole. I think the antivaxx people are morons and are a danger to themselves and others, but that doesn't mean they should be mowed down. Hope this dipshit gets put away for a long time.

    If anyone had to go to the hospital that may change.

    Correct.

    And it's still technically terrorism, even if nobody gets a paper cut. Nobody should be doing it, even if you agree with the sentiment.

    Oh, absolutely. Doesn't mean I need to sympathise with the victims especially if they're actively encouraging shit that results in other people getting sick or dying, though.

    Sadly, if he can't "prove" that he was fleeing, according the law, he isn't protected.

    The attack itself occurred in Palmdale, CA. Was mainly poking fun at Florida.

    Don Jr. is a piece of shit. Feel free to google why, but it has to do with a tragic incident involving someone who mocked his daddy.

    Biden refuses to apply Executive Time to Trump documents.

    "You already posted that."

    There were two more requests, Biden denies these too.

    "What were they?"

    Biden didn't say. I looked around and didn't find any reputable sources that knew, but, I saw the term "call logs" coming up once or twice.
