FEBRUARY 13, 2021: The unconstitutional impeachment ended exactly as predicted, with an acquittal. Fifty-seven senators voted to convict, including all the Democrats plus these seven a**hole Republicans who need to be primaried asap – Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.)
All 43 senators who voted to acquit Trump are Republicans. A conviction required a 67 vote supermajority.
You can read Trump’s statement following the acquittal at the third link below.
BLM/ANTIFA: Don’t hold your breath waiting on Democrats to condemn the violence [7:17] – Eleven protesters were arrested and 2 officers injured during Saturday’s “F*** 12” march in Midtown Manhattan. They also put up barricades in the street, illegally blocking traffic, and burned a U.S. flag and a Blue Lives flag.
At one point, someone pointed at a journalist and yelled, “He’s a cop!” About a dozen protesters surrounded the man, shoving him and beating him with their fists and other objects. He suffered a broken nose.
In Portland on Friday night, black bloc members harassed police officers, screaming “Quit your jobs” at them. They also bashed windows at storefronts and at an urgent care center.
Last weekend, BLM and Antifa demonstrators marched in the streets of Washington, D.C., where protesters tangled with police officers. As the crowd marched down the streets, they chanted threats to “burn down” the nation’s capital.
BLUE CHECK: The slide above was included in the Democrats’ opening argument. The sender of the two tweets, Jennifer Lynn Lawrence, says they falsified the record by adding a blue check mark.
“I’ve never been verified on Twitter so why did my Tweet used in the fact-free impeachment include a verification badge? I’m assuming Democrats faked it like they are faking the whole case.”
I went to her Twitter account. It’s true that she does NOT have the blue checkmark that mysteriously appeared in the prosecution’s slide.
She also pointed out that the slimers altered the meaning of the second tweet, claiming she had promised Trump that she’d bring the “cavalry” (mounted military troops), when what she actually wrote was “calvary” (the salvation Jesus won for everyone when he was crucified).
“To put it simply, Y’ALL NEED JESUS.”
BOOK BURNING: A Black Lives Matter protester was fired from his job at the library in Chattanooga, TN, after an investigation uncovered that he had removed conservative books and burned them.
Cameron Williams currently faces charges of obstructing an intersection, blocking an emergency vehicle, and taking the Sheriff’s flag from the county jail and burning it at Miller Park. In 2014, he was charged with driving without a license.
BORDER: Because building the wall was a waste of money, the FAUXTUS administration has built a 160,000 square foot facility on 45 acres of land to provide processing capacity for the surge of arrivals at the Rio Grande Valley Sector. The facility is weatherproof, climate-controlled, and is expected to provide ample areas for eating, sleeping, and personal hygiene.
CALIFORNIA: The parent advisory council unanimously supported Seth Brenzel joining the San Francisco Board of Education’s parent committee. But when they submitted his name, the Board of Education members spent two hours debating if he should be approved. At issue was the fact that he is white.
After the lengthy debate, during which the lack of Arab, Vietnamese, and Native Americans on the committee was noted, the school board decided against voting on his appointment at all and asked the council to find alternate candidates that would improve the diversity of the committee.
Speaking of diversity … while Seth is White, he is also a male who shares a mixed race daughter with his husband. The 15-person council currently has only 10 members. Two are Black, one is Asian-American, three are Latinx, one is a Pacific Islander, and three are white. NONE are male. And NONE are homosexual.
When my brother ran a hotel in Los Angeles, he was required to match the local demographics in every department. (He was also forbidden to ask anyone what their racial identity was … but that’s California for you!) Anyway, here is the makeup of the population of San Francisco compared with the makeup of the ten members of the parent committee (in parentheses). It seems very clear to me that the SF School Board’s rejection of Seth Brenzel’s offer to serve on the parent committee is not about diversity, but about hating white men.
Female: 53% (100%)
Male: 49% (0%)
White: 48% (30%)
Asian: 33% (10%)
Latinx: 15.1% (30%)
Other: 6.6% (0%)
Black: 6% (20%)
Mixed: 4.7% (0%)
Same sex married: 3% (0%)
Native American: 0.5% (0%)
Pacific Islanders: 0.4% (10%)
CANCEL CULTURE: Progressives who accuse conservatives of taking part in cancel culture really need to learn this distinction.
CAPITOL SECURITY: Steven Sund was Chief of the U.S. Capitol Police on January 6th. He says his superiors lied when they claimed that nobody at the Capitol asked for additional security support. Sund says he requested assistance six times ahead of and during the attack on the Capitol. Each of those requests was denied or delayed. He warns, “If they don’t get their act together with physical security, it’s going to happen again.”
Oh, puh-leeze. They WANTED the breach and the riot to happen so they could use them as an excuse to impeach Trump and silence and purge his followers from the public square.
CATHOLIC: [30:36] – Father William Kosko, Pastor of St. Henry’s Parish, Buckeye, AZ, gave a homily that is worth hearing.
FARCEBOOK: FB has cancelled the account of Christian conservative actor Kevin Sorbo. Known for his role in the TV series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” Sorbo had half a million followers.
IMPEACHMENT: Democrats have now set a precedent whereby Congress can impeach a president who is no longer in office.
MATH: Getting the right answer has now been declared racist. By all means, People of the Left, let’s make absolutely sure that people of color will NEVER get off welfare.
OIL: The Left bitched endlessly about how Bush supposedly went to war over oil. When we are energy independent, like we were when Trump was in charge, that wasn’t a problem, now was it?!
RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: Fourteen suits, 58 dress shirts, 300 neckties and various other items of clothing that once belonged to Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek have been donated by the show and the Trebek family to a reentry program to be worn on job interviews.
SCIENCE: CLICK https://twitter.com/PinonPost/status/1360030693900845058 [:40] to hear a piece of a New Mexico Senate floor debate about abortion. Democrat Senator Jacob Candelaria says angrily that he got “that same prop” and “threw it in the trash” because “not everyone agrees on when life begins.”
Actually, every scientist agrees that human life begins at conception. Even when you and I were merely a single cell, then two, then four, etc., we were DNA-unique, 100% human, and alive.
What is at issue in the abortion debate is whether that human life is classified under the law as “property” (which can be thrown in the trash) or “person” (whose rights must be protected under the law).
Ironically, back when slaves and women were classified as property, the unborn were classified as persons. Legalized abortion is the only time in our history when a protected group lost rather than gained civil rights.
THE STUPID, IT BURNS: Nikki Haley was publicly critical of Trump’s complaints about Pence certifying the election. I kinda agreed with her, though I wouldn’t have made as big of a deal about it as she did. I think Pence was in a no-win situation and did what his conscience demanded. Shortly thereafter, when Democrats wanted him to do something else, he reminded them that he hadn’t violated his conscience or the law to please his boss and he wasn’t going to do it to please them.
Anyway, Lefties are tickled with Haley (for the moment … the next time she condemns abortion, they’ll hate her again). Among the rah-rah tweets was this pricelessly ignorant one by Sean Penn. Nick Arama at Red State said, “Wow, so much to unpack there. Evangelicals run by the Vatican? And impeachment by the Catholic Church? Not to mention ‘following Satin.’ He probably doesn’t want to talk about sex parties, that’s usually the Democrats’ domain when it comes to scandals.”
“This tweet was brought to you by a confused fusion of pre-reformation theology, meaningless political expedience, Bed Bath & Beyond , Dante, and Hollywood weekends.”
Tweeters had fun. “To spend a day in Sean Penn’s brain would be a trip. The Catholic Church has authority over all Christians and the road to hell is paved with satin and lace.”
“I’m Jewish, so I’m not familiar with these Evangelical Catholic sex parties. Are they as fun as they sound?”
And finally, “Don’t do drugs, kids.”
