What did Rudy Giuliani mean by "trial by combat" ??

As soon as his speech was over, his audience marched over to the Capitol and we saw hand-to-hand combat at the doors of the Capitol. Should Rudy be charged with inciting an insurrection? What did he mean by "trial by combat"?

I heard a couple of talking heads in the background really canning the former guy's speech.

They were saying that it was slow and boring.

I had turned it on for just a few seconds and that much was already obvious.

It sounded like he couldn't even read a teleprompter anymore? He sounded like a drone bee. He just droned on and on...

Should Donald Trump be indicted for inciting an insurrection...?

...when we get a new Attorney General?

Or is it impossible to do because it would further divide our country?

Would his supporters rebel if Trump was charged with a crime? Should that be a reason to overlook a crime against our country?

Or should the evidence be brought out slowly and attempt to persuade the non-believers by a gradual process?

There is no doubt that the efforts to overthrow the last election are not going to stop. It is more of a threat with each passing day.

What should the Justice Department do?

The crime continues and we still do not have an Attorney General.

Today, the crime of sedition continues. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and others will continue to provoke their supporters into believing that the last election was stolen from them. In the face of all evidence, they will continue to attack our electoral system and tear down our democracy. What's next? Will they ask for the military to turn against their country and overthrow the present President, Joe Biden?

It is a continuing crime. They are more than sore losers. They are criminals.

Can someone help with a list of Trump's greatest accomplishments?

I keep hearing Republicans, even ones that voted to impeach him, say that they liked "a lot" of his policies but they didn't like his tone or his comments or something else. Nobody ever asks what "policies" they liked??

Perhaps they liked his $2 trillion dollar taxcuts? Most of it went to the wealthy and most of the taxcut went back into the stock market in stock buy backs. Many people benefited from their 401Ks when the market went up... but the price was paid by the non-propertied classes at the bottom of the ladder. They will be burdened with the debt for years to come. They will be deprived of wages and public services because of that taxcut.

What other "great accomplishments" can you think of?

Some may say that he brought the price of gasoline down? But what was the price of gasoline when he took over? Their praise of the economy and job creation do not match their rhetoric. In fact, Obama Administration created more jobs in their last 3 years than Trump created in his first three years. As we know, there were massive job losses when the COVID hit in his last year. He ended up with a net loss of jobs, as I recall?

So when they embrace the "Big Lie" and say that Trump won the election in a landslide, we should be very skeptical. They should be called out.

How could someone go for 4 years in the polls, and never top 50%? How could someone so weak in the polls claim they won a "landslide victory"? It doesn't make sense.

They need to be slapped down with facts when they start spouting the "Big Lie" that the election was stolen and that Trump won by a "landslide". He was given every option in the world to prove his claims of fraud, including over sixty times in the courts, and he failed every time.

The oxygen needs to be shut off on the "Big Lie" immediately.

Before we can have any "bi-partisanship"...

...we must admit there is partisanship on both sides.

Politics can make strange bedfellows, we have heard? But seldom has there been a time more critical than now for "bi-partisanship".

We need "bi-partisanship" for numerous reasons. First and foremost is to make sure they work and debate in the public's service. If there is a disaster somewhere in our country, anywhere in our country, then we want to be sure that our elected officials are working together to solve the people's needs or necessities. That is a primary reason "bi-partisanship" is needed.

However, the times call for a new type of "bi-partisanship". There is a domestic enemy in our midst. It is fascist and promotes the "Big Lie" as a propaganda tool to tear down our democracy. We must do battle to stop our nation from becoming a Third World country living under a dictatorship. That is why we must unite with the other Party to fight. It is in our common interest and the security interest of the United States.

Millions of jobs are ready to be filled tomorrow.

In the US Postal Service.

They need workers. They need to restore the trust that they once had. Trump and DeJoy have torn it down and it needs to be rebuilt.

Technology has changed everything. People order everything thru the mail. The Postal Service can do it better and at a better price than UPS or FedEx or any other carrier.

We need to invest in our US Postal System and create millions of jobs in the process. Alongside the new energy technologies, we can create more jobs than can be filled.

Forget all the crap about "socialist" and that bullshit. We just need to create jobs and fix our Postal System.
