President Trump urged Georgia’s lead elections investigator to “find the fraud” in a lengthy December phone call, saying the official would be a “national hero,” according to an individual familiar with the call who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the conversation.
Trump placed the call to the investigations chief for the Georgia secretary of state’s office shortly before Christmas — while the individual was leading an inquiry into allegations of ballot fraud in Cobb County, in the suburbs of Atlanta, according to people familiar with the episode.

Too Late, Mr. President

Trump acknowledges ‘a new administration will be inaugurated on January 20’
By Amy B Wang
Trump acknowledges there will be a new administration on Jan. 20
A day after the insurrection at the Capitol, President Trump on Jan. 7 said he will focus on ensuring a "seamless transition of power." (@realDonaldTrump/Twitter)
In a video message released Thursday evening, more than 24 hours after mobs of his supporters besieged the U.S. Capitol in a shocking insurrection, President Trump denounced and tried to distance himself from the attack in his name.
“America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy,” Trump said. “To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction: You do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law: You will pay.”
Reading off a script in a flat voice, Trump claimed he immediately deployed the National Guard to help secure the building and expel the intruders. Other officials have disputed that account. Trump also claimed his attempts to overturn the election results were simply his efforts to “ensure the integrity of the vote.”
Nevertheless, the video appeared to be the closest Trump has come to formally conceding to Biden.

Pence is said to oppose invoking 25th Amendment to strip Trump of his duties.

Vice President Mike Pence is opposed to a call by Democrats in Congress and some Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment to strip President Trump of his powers before his term ends, a person close to the vice president said.

It is unclear when Mr. Pence will alert Congress of his position. But the decision by Mr. Pence is said to be supported by several Trump cabinet officials. Those officials, a senior Republican said, viewed the effort as likely to add to the current chaos in Washington rather than deter it.

Trump's remarks before Capitol riot may be investigated, acting U.S. attorney in D.C. says

At a news conference to discuss federal law enforcement’s response to Wednesday’s mayhem, acting D.C. U.S. attorney Michael Sherwin was asked whether President Trump, who had urged the crowd to "fight," would be investigated. The prosecutor responded, “We are looking at all actors here, and all options are on the table. ... Anyone that had a role, if the evidence fits the elements of a crime, they’re going to be charged.”

Ashli Babbit's Death Is On Trump's Head

Her blood is on his hands.


I have no sympathy for her; she should not have been there yesterday. But her death is on Trump and his co-conspirators.


From The Washington Post:

“Protesters were far outnumbered by law enforcement, whom one man on a loudspeaker blamed for starting “the United States civil war.” “This is China,” said one man leaving the grounds, echoing shouts of “Tiananmen Square” that came when police cleared the grounds.”

No,idiots, if it was actually China, you assholes would have been shot, and your families would have gotten the bill for the bullets. Also, they would be in re-education camps by now.

Samuel Little, the deadliest serial killer in American history, died Wednesday at the age of 80, with police around the country still searching for his victims.
Little, who admitted late in life to killing 93 people across 19 states, evaded justice for more than four decades, preying on women at the margins of society. He targeted sex workers, drug users and poor, mostly Black women whose murders authorities repeatedly failed to solve or struggled to prosecute.
Officials acknowledge that the vast majority of murders attributed to Little would never have been solved if he did not begin confessing in 2018, while serving multiple life sentences in a California prison.

I Don't Know, Somebody Tell Me, Please......

Is this incitement to riot? If it isn't, I think it's awfully close.

President Donald Trump Calls For Protest in DC on Jan 6., Says ‘Be There, Will Be Wild’
Twitter ^ | 12/19/20

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump Peter Navarro releases 36-page report alleging election fraud 'more than sufficient' to swing victory to Trump https://washex.am/3nwaBCe. A great report by Peter. Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!

Trump ought to call on the military and have them standing by just outside of the doors of congress, if they don’t do what’s right and by the book, arrest them for treason. And arrest the traitor in the States too that have not been doing stuff by the book. Maybe Trump has something like that in mind, either way Trump is a fighter and he going to fight all the way to the end, which may gets nasty at the end.

Antifa, BLM, Communist agents, Deep State agents, corrupt DC police (who herded Trump supporters into Antifa gangs last month so they could be hurt), and leftist thugs will be there as well.
Just FYI. I am not saying don't go, I am saying you need to know.

Even if Trump did this and prevailed in the election fraud, Congress would impeach, and this time, remove him for the act you describe.

This is the ultimate "democracy" card.
The sheer power of millions marching on D.C.

The police will be overwhelmed. They are a few thousand.

The military will be under command of President Trump.

If this is legitimate, the people will speak.

President Trump refers to the report by Peter Navarro.

Protective gear for wearing later, when the hoodlums come out, is a must. (helmet, goggles, face mask) Also some means of personal protection, like a can of hornet spray and a big stick.

Folks...I am sure that our great POTUS, Donald J. Trump has the “ACE” card tucked away safely, in his sleeve, sitting there waiting for just the right moment to be released, like a deadly, fatal, biting, snake!!!! Like Washington, DC editor & commentator, Charles Hurt....Trump also knows that badly tainted, corrupted, criminal, Democrat, Joe Biden is the laugh joke, of this Earth, a man with a drop of capable leadership in his entire body!!! And a healthy shout out and ditto for Kamala Harris, the Democrat Party Lap Dog from the failed state of California.

I could write a book on these Democrat Party retards, America and American Haters...but....most Americans realize, know & understand the low life, power hungry goons, that seek to destroy the American Republic for so many years and made the USA the greatest country in the world, with freedom and liberty for citizens individuals!!!

I trust POTUS, Trump...he simply loves his country and the American people...all of them!!!

So....I ask & implore millions of loyal & patriotic Americans to join POTUS Trump,and, to gather in Washington, DC with him to protest these Democrat Nation Destroyers. Be there.

Joe Biden & his entire Democrat Party are nothing but traitors & turncoats. A person like a totally incompetent,Joe Biden should never, ever, get even near a place called the White House...a place called a Jail House suits Biden and Democrats to a tee!!! Wake up, Americans...your country is at stake, march proudly in protest with our great POTUS, Trump the real honest 2020 POTUS, winner by an historical landslide victory. As Mr. Hurt outlines in fact, Biden is nothing but a weak sister, with few real leadership talent and qualities at all!!!

POTUS, Trump....God and Country call upon you to Protect and defend this great Republic...now do it, Trump...Biden must never, ever, occupy the POTUS slot or the White House...period!!!
