Today was a sickening disgrace... [View all]

To watch the spineless, toady Republicans kiss the ring of the guy that threatened their lives on January 6th, 2021, in our nation's Capitol.

At this very moment, every American should be bent over their toilets vomiting. If this doesn't make you sick, as an American, then something is seriously wrong with you.

The convicted felon returned to the scene of the crime. It was a sight to behold. The looks on the faces of the Republicans welcoming him back to the place they had to run from on January 6th. Their loving glances and embraces for their Cult Leader. It was nothing less than disgraceful.

But, for Trump, it was a necessity. He cannot survive without the support of the Republican Party. He is toast if he does not win the nomination of their Party. So, he uses the same old bullshit and lies that he has used for the last nine years. And with the disgraceful Republicans, it works every time.

Four weeks from today, he is to stand before the Judge for his sentencing. How much damage can he do to our institutions and our rule of law in four short weeks? There is no simple solution. Simply putting him in jail does not fix the damage he has already done. Nothing the Judge will do will change the minds of the cult that follows Trump, including elected Republicans.

These same Republicans want to subpoena the Manhattan DA and Prosecutor to testify before their Committee on July 12th, the day after the sentencing. Nobody should expect anything good to come from that.

The voters must understand by now that the Justice system is not going to work for them. The Congress is not going to work for them. The Supreme Court is not going to save them from the scourge that has attacked our democracy.

The voters can only save themselves. There is no one else to save us. Even then, there is no guarantee that our votes will not be corrupted. We are the last line of defense.
