Marjorie Taylor-Greene the Loony conspirator colours the GOP!!

I thought this was funny. The fact that she can get elected in the first place tells us all we need to know about the mess America is in following Trump’s lies and conspiracy. It’s slipping back into the Dark Ages. It’s forgotten about science and lost its grip on reality.

How Many GOP does it take to purge the party of lies and hateful rhetoric? Cartoon

I don’t know what is going to happen to the GOP. 61% of Americans, including a big chunk of Republicans, thought that Trump should have been impeached. I think the GOP have shot themselves in the foot by standing behind lies and conspiracy. They’ll pay for it.

The Impeachment Of Trump

Lol – the vote went as predicted. The Republicans are in a downward nosedive completely lacking in morality.

What does it actually take to find someone guilty?

The repeated spreading of conspiracy theories and lies?

The incitements of mobs to invade the Capitol with a view to lynching politicians?

Incitement to overthrow a democratic election?

The death of a number of people?

The violent ransacking of the seat of government?

The sowing of division and hatred?

Obviously we need more than that!!!!

I wonder.

I wonder how many Republicans voted against impeachment out of fear for their own safety and the safety of their families?

I wonder how many Republicans voted against impeachment out of fear of not being re-elected?

I wonder how many Republicans voted out of cowardice?

I wonder how many Republicans votes out of greed and lust for power?

And I wonder how many Republicans voted because they really believed Trump was innocent?

Now, as Mitch McConnell said, it’s down to the courts to show more integrity, to have more balls, to stand up to the mob, and to bring the full force of the law down on the wrongdoers.

Poetry – To Impeach or not to Impeach

To Impeach or not to Impeach

To impeach or not to impeach, that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The blows and outrage of the storming of the Capitol,

To allow insurrection and a sea of troubles

Or by opposing end them.

To allow incitement and pretend to sleep,

Casting democracy aside,

Or speak out against the crime?

To hold morality dear or sell a soul for votes.

To condone the lies and support conspiracy

Or to tell the truth.

There’s the rub.

Self-interest or the truth?

Should one put self above reality?

Support violence and anarchy?

Or choose law and order to say we end

The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to,

From a leader’s lust for power?

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

The oppressor’s wrongs,

The proud man’s arrogant denial,

His lies and deceit,

The law’s delay,

The insolence of office,

The unworthy leader’s surly unfounded claims.

And by condoning them

Destroy the base of democratic choice;

To condone the rule of the rabble,

To condone the lies of conspiracy

And allow history to charge us dear?

Or by speaking truth

To bring down the wrath of the mob

And face a dismal future

Out of office.

To destroy a system, fair and true,

Or put one’s fortunes first?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all.

Opher and Shakespeare – 8.2.2021

It is evident that the Republicans have a huge moral choice.

It is obvious to all that Trump spent weeks inciting insurrection. He had

begun talking about the election being stolen long before the election. He was laying the groundwork to steal the election by force, to incite the mob to overturn the legal result and overthrow democracy.  He made unfounded claims of fraud and talked of ballot boxes stuffed with ballots for Biden without a shred of evidence.

It was all lies.

So do the Republicans deny the truth? Or do they support the lies and conspiracy of a fascist leader?

Do they put their own re-election before the truth, the future of democracy and the good of the nation.

Surely this is no partisan matter?

This is about the rule of truth, the rule of law and order and the force of the law to deal with a man who tried, by force, to stage a coup.

History will judge people harshly.
