Recall when WWI veterans camped out on the DC Mall in 1932 to demand they get the pensions they were promised and McArthur and Eisenhower carried out POTUS Hoover’s instructions to gun them down ?

Behold, the faces of the moronic people of USA. Unbelievable abuse of our democratic rights to protest and their thug leader refusal to call back his cohorts and let democratic process run it’s course. But let me be the first to assure these fools will put their tails between the hind legs and go back to their KKK encampments. Trump has done a great job of first fucking his own chances of ever succeeding in any endeavor he might wish to pursue. He has been endangering the very existence and progression of our democratic values and traditions.Trump must be held responsible for the chaos he and his fascist gang of looters have concocted. Dividing the nation and hoping to ever run for office? I think Trump has given Georgia senate seat to the progressives, Thanks for that Donnie boy! I also think that the future of the GOP party is in dire peril becoming the party of the rich and the racist assholes. I’ve been shedding tears throughout the writing of this piece as i love my country and the monuments erected for the people’s representative to assemble within and meet to render laws and rules for our nation. Although as of late not in the people’s favor however the structure is valid and can be changed to one day do represent the will of the vast majority of us the common folks, the people.

Take a look at the pic accompanying this article. That is how the rest of the world views the real American to be.
Just makes you well up with pride, doesn’t it?

Talk to me Michael, svp.

I am listening to the mainstream media, and as expected they are saying Trump’s failure to recall his goons is a “leadership vacuum” instead of characterizing it as a planned fascist takeover in which hundreds of GOP operatives have been and continue to explicitly enable and facilitate.

There was an armed standoff on the House floor. Members of Congress were hiding under desks. Gas masks supplied to members of Congress.

All together now: WHO DID NOT KNOW THIS WOULD HAPPEN.

From the looks of the leaders (of the Trump brigade), this is hilarious. However, if someone gets hurt–this is all on Trump.

No - 46% of the electorate, at max.

Everything Trump Touches Dies…and that book was written by a Raygun operative!!!
If I met with Rick Wilson today, right now, I’d tell him that he and his bunch brought this upon us, with their neocon this and neolib that. They’d back the Devil if he showed them the money first.
If I had a DeLorean with a flux capicitor, I wouldn’t go back to when Donny was born. I’d go for the grandfather, the Drumpf, in Prussia. That would chop the head off the Trump family snake. And I would just let the Confederacy go their own way…

Yes indeed…Ronnie Raygun made greed good and gubmit bad and continues to be deified as a small gubmit fiscal conservative by the GOP and some dimcritters, despite Ronnie running up more debt and deficit than all of his 39 predecessors combined adding more gubmit employees tha there had ever been, nearly all the new hires to expand military industrial media infotainment complex (MIMIC) corporate welfare.

I just had a vision of a security crew of about 8-10 guys, three up the side, three in front and three in back escorting Donald Trump out of the WH and to jail.

Completely expected. Too much kindness has been extended to Donald for the last 4 years. Donald needed to be removed from office years ago at the first signs of his insanity and put under lock and key for our nation’s well being. Now we have this.

No - 46% or so of the electorate supports this, and hundreds of the GOP elected representatives.

This is an attempted coup - result still uncertain.

From JFK to here is a straight line.

In two weeks Trump should be arrested for inciting a riot and sedition and anything else regular.

If Trump isn’t arrested in two weeks, the GOP will continue their half century crime spree and become more powerful than ever.

Characterizing this as a Trump problem is a false narrative seeing how many opportunities the GOP has had to reign him in.

The GOP is loving every minute despite any theatrics to the contrary. It gives them more leverage to finalize the neofeudal paradise for the 1% (neofeudal hell for the 99%) that they have been working toward since the 1973 Powell Memo gave them their marching orders.
