Yesterday, the following 44 republicans and two democrats flipped us the proverbial bird …
|Alaska||Daniel S. Sullivan||Republican|
|Indiana||Todd C. Young||Republican|
|Louisiana||John Neely Kennedy||Republican|
|North Carolina||Richard Burr||Republican|
|North Carolina||Thom Tillis||Republican|
|North Dakota||Kevin Cramer||Republican|
|North Dakota||John Hoeven||Republican|
|South Carolina||Lindsey Graham||Republican|
|South Carolina||Tim Scott||Republican|
|South Dakota||Mike Rounds||Republican|
|South Dakota||John Thune||Republican|
|West Virginia||Shelley Moore Capito||Republican|
|Wisconsin||Ronald Harold Johnson||Republican|
These are the people who said to the citizens of this nation:
- We do not value your lives
- We do not honour our oaths to protect and defend the Constitution
- We do not care about democratic processes
- We care only for our own continuation of power
- We are loyal lapdogs to the former ‘president’
It should also be noted that six Republicans did find their conscience and voted in favour of the commission. My thanks go out to …
- Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana
- Senator Susan Collins of Maine
- Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
- Senator Rob Portman of Ohio
- Senator Mitt Romney of Utah
- Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska
On January 6th, a mob of thugs, domestic terrorists, white supremacists attacked the U.S. Capitol. Five people died that day, and 140 police officers were injured. They were protesting a fair and honest election, attempting to stop the democratic process of certifying the results of that election. Why? Because they had been told by the former guy and by some number of members of Congress that the election was not fair, that President Biden was not the true winner, and that somehow, they should attempt to stop the process of certifying the election. They were encouraged and instigated by not only the former ‘president’ but also by certain members of Congress who provided them with information about the tunnels under the Capitol, about who would be where, and other vital information. They were instigated by a member of Congress who gave them a fist-bump to show his support for their criminal activities.
Those who attacked the Capitol must be punished to the fullest extent of the law, however those who operated behind the scenes from a position of trust must be punished even more severely. Yesterday, members of the Republican Party in Congress and two members of the Democratic Party voted or showed by their lack of vote that they are arrogant assholes, cowards who are more afraid of the former ‘president’ than they are of the people of this nation. We elected these asses, we pay their salary, and what do we get in return? Not one damn thing. They turn a deaf ear and a blind eye to our pleas, to our needs, to our very lives.
Were it in my power, I would expel each and every one of these asses from Congress tomorrow. Sadly, it isn’t, but what IS in my power is to use my voice, such as it is, to wake up the people of this nation and ensure that these asses are voted OUT of office the very next time they come up for re-election.
The truth will come out … there will be investigations either by a special House committee or by the Department of Justice. It is my fondest hope that before the 2022 mid-term elections, we have direct evidence of the roles in the attack by such as Matt Gaetz, Margie Greene, Josh Hawley, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, Kevin McCarthy and others, not to mention the former ‘president’. These people do NOT deserve their positions, they do NOT represent us, and frankly in my book they are wasting precious resources like air, food, and water by their very existence.
Yesterday was a dark day for the United States, perhaps the darkest in my lifetime, perhaps even darker than 9/11, for yesterday we were told in no uncertain terms that the Constitution is null and void and that our lives do not matter. This country took a huge step backward in terms of democratic principles, of fairness, honesty and integrity. Domestic terrorists have been given a green light for future endeavours. Ultimately, the truth will come out and justice meted out to all guilty parties. Meanwhile, our elected officials care more about their own fortunes than about our lives. Remember that, my friends. Remember the names at the start of this post, for every last one of those senators has something to hide … I’d bet my life on it.
