If Trump were to win election, would you accept him as a legitimate President?

Would you accept as your President a criminal defendant with 91 charges against him? Sooner or later, he must stop saying he is the "victim".

Would you accept someone who stole military secrets and incited insurrection against our country? And has spoken out against the Constitution which defines our very being as a nation.

Do you think that guy would be a legitimate president?

I think the Republican Party needs to get its shit together. The people are not going to accept this criminal wannabe autocrat. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it?

Personally, I could not accept him as the Leader of our Country. That is just one opinion.

If he were to win, it would be a most divisive and angry victory.

How that would manifest itself, I do not know.

Jordan Klepper, from The Daily Show, was talking with a Trump supporter at one of his rallies...

And he had on all types of Trump paraphernalia and was complaining about the price of gas and the price of eggs.

Klepper asked him how much his "Trump socks" cost? He said $20. Then he asked him how much he paid for his MAGA hat?

"Forty dollars", he said.

Klepper then asked him how much he had spent in total on his Trump paraphernalia?

"About $2 thousand dollars", he said.

And he was worried about inflation and the price of eggs

Who is in charge of the House of Representatives?

When Kevin McCarthy was Speaker, we thought he was in charge. Until he went down to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the ring of the criminal Trump.

Then they kicked him out of his position and put in MAGA zealot by the name of Mike Johnson. There was hope that things might change a bit with a new Speaker, but it was not to be.

In a few short weeks, Speaker Johnson accepted the invitation of Donald Trump to come down to Mar-a-Lago and kiss his ring.

The new Speaker wanted everyone to know that he was "all-in" for Donald Trump.

Meet the new Boss - Same as the old Boss.

Republicans have no respect for justice or law and order.

They do not believe there should be justice for crimes committed. They believe it is simply a matter of politics - whomever has the power gets to punish their opponent.

That is why they are trying to impeach Joe Biden. It is all a political game for them.

What else is one to believe?

Republicans have come to the realization that Trump will be their nominee.

And they have decided to support and promote his candidacy, lies and crimes and all. That is who they are.

They have made the choice to lie about January 6th and all the crimes that have been committed by their nominee. Power is of utmost importance to them.

Senator Mike Lee of Utah is the latest example. He has decided to promote the conspiracy theory that it was the FBI that was leading the attack upon our Capitol on January 6th and posts photos of "an FBI agent" flashing his badge during the attack. (The fact is that the person he says is an "FBI agent is now doing time for his part in the insurrection).

The sad part is that Mike Lee knows it.

They are going to ride this horse until it drops dead.

Does a criminal defendant have the same 1st Amendment rights as everyone else?

Especially since he is a criminal defendant mostly because of what he has said and done under his "1st Amendment rights"?

It was his 1st Amendment rights that he exercised on January 6th of 2021 that incited a mob to attack our Capitol.

Now they say that the government, We, the People, do not have a right to prohibit the speech of a criminal defendant.

No doubt, if TFG is hit with a gag order, he will use it to his political advantage.

However, if he is not prohibited from his inciteful language, then the political consequences could be much worse.

There is no good choice.

Many Americans are like the mouse that smells the cheese...

They have no idea that they are about to stick their heads into a trap. They will be lying on their backs with blood coming from their nostrils, wondering "what the hell happened"? They will be taken out with the morning trash.

One can scream and yell and ring the warning bells, but they hear nothing. They only smell the cheese. Their demise will be sad and quick.

They deserve no sympathy. They have wrought havoc and fear on the rest of America. There is not much worse than a dangerous ignorance that blindly follows the lies and ignores the facts.

They are beyond saving.

Civil War with Republicans in the House

For some reason, they are angry and are very close to physical confrontation with themselves.

One of the Congressmen, from Tennessee, told a reporter that Kevin McCarthy had "elbowed" him in the kidneys, because he was angry with the Congressmen that voted against McCarthy staying on as Speaker. He was one of the eight.

The reporter said that the Congressman called McCarthy a "jerk" and that it was very close to a more physical confrontation.

Even the Republicans in the Senate are getting in on the act. Mullins, from Oklahoma, stood up while in Committee, and challenged a witness to take it outside. Senator Bernie Sanders, a Democrat, had to call the Committee to order to remind the gentleman that he was a "Senator".

Why are they so angry and violent?

They appear to be at war with themselves.

He said to "love thy neighbors". He did not say to "kill your neighbors".

He said to "let the little children come to me". He did not say to "kill the little children".

Jesus said, "Blessed are the peacemakers." He did not say say "blessed are those that seek revenge and retribution".

Jesus' teachings superseded the "eye for an eye" teachings of the Old Testament.

For those that say Jesus is "too weak" in the reality of this world, they cannot call themselves Christians.

We all know what Jesus taught, and the killing and retribution that we see today, is not it.
