This worries me. It has worried me for 3.5 years now. You can't convince others to worry when they're too busy yelling "deep state" at you.

Lots of people were warning about this before the elections. Nobody listened to Cassandra, either.

The thing that worries me the most is that the whitehouse is openly lying about things we all saw live on national TV

They claim 1) No tear gas was used on peaceful protesters
2) That kerfew was in effect
3) That the park police were not used
4) That the protesters were throwing bricks

1) we have footage of that from multiple angles, even the spent shell casings from the rounds used.
2) Everyone can read a clock, the date was time stamped right on those broadcasts.
3) Many angles showing park police officers working in coordination with the military
4) No angle of any video shows a single brick before or after the police attacked. They (despite having CCTV of the whole area) have not released any videos to support their claims.

This happened 3 days ago!!!!

What kind of dystopian reality are we in where the US government is behaving in ways I wouldn't even expect of china.

Can we just get Pence and Congress together on this already?  You know, while Mitch and Company churn their their bullsh*ttery...

Remember that the RNC server was hacked, too, and that Republicans are all being blackmailed. Now, a true patriot would sacrifice their career for the good of the country but then we don't have many true patriots anywhere in our federal government.

CIA analyst? Is it Jack Ryan? If so, which one? Alec Baldwin? Harrison Ford? Affleck? The guy from The Office? Because I trust Ford. Unless he's behind the stick of a chopper.

When Trump wins reelection with -12 million votes, this nation is going to farking implode.

Read the text of that amendment.  It requires Trump's cabinet to vote to remove him, then it goes to Congress, which has to vote 2/3 in favor of removing him.  It's a ludicrously difficult standard to achieve.

C'mon, get the national guard and army to start shooting the protesters point blank!

Hell, use the Blackhawk helicopters and start dropping stuff on protesters.

Cassandra warned that maybe the Greeks would be pissed at Troy for stealing Helen and told Agamemnon that coming home to a wife after last lying to her about arranging their daughter's wedding when instead he just needed to kill said daughter to please the gods might not be receptive to his surprise return with a new concubine.

Cassandra wasn't believed because they didn't want to believe.

super blatant nepotism with kids and kids-in-law seems like a good sign of a banana republic.

and yes Joe Biden should keep his shiatty son away from the white house after the election, assuming he lives that long.

Also, the amendment is intended for a scenario where the president is incapacitated and unable to pass the office to a successor.  As much as I'd like it to, I'm pretty sure 'criminal insanity' wouldn't factor into that scenario.  The House should be fast tracking articles of impeachment right now.

Former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker (R) said it was "hard to imagine" any other president "having the guts to walk out of the White House like this."

It's hard to imagine any other president needing guts to walk out of the White House.

For example:

Props to Clinton, she wouldn't have encouraged military generals in the US Army to go start massacring peaceful protesters exercising their 1st Amendment right.

Don't worry, and just give it a few weeks. The US National Guard and US Army will start massacring peaceful protesters en masse just like they did in Iraq and Afghanistan. The gloves WILL come off, only a matter of when.

Newest data from large scale observations say it doesn't work.  Maybe he will stay with the idea that maybe he should take disinfectants and insulin.  Seriously, who feeds him this stuff?!

A lot of armed people on the right hate me because of things that aren't even true. I don't want to take away anyone's Bibles. I don't want to take away anyone's guns, within reason. I don't want open borders. I don't want free education for illegal immigrants. I don't want abortions for 12 year olds. I don't want to tax myself into the Poorhouse. They are fed a steady stream of b******* and they start believing it. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions of people that actually want to start a war. That's really a shame

These Trump voters and GOP folks have spend the last 3.5 doing one thing and one thing only.

Defending his legitimacy. They lost the popular vote and he is generally doing all the things they claim he is against. They have been defending their decision fiercely and there is no going back until there is a loss. They want to be taken seriously.

This is one aspect of Trump voters, but I've always noticed that they consistently have been attempting to legitimize their decision.

On deck... prepare for this... I am watching the George Floyd memorial and they are not practicing social distancing in a church. Waaay more than 50 people or whatever the number.

It will be "those people" can do it but not us! They are being treated better than us!
