Hey PPO! AdLib an hour ago

If at first you don’t impeach, try, try Trump again. AdLib an hour ago

Hi, Ad! How goes it in Ca? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

All is well this way. How are things out your way? AdLib an hour ago

Hey glenn! AdLib an hour ago

Apparently there is a clause in the Con that BLOTUS ccan be banned from politics altogether, and it only needs a senate majority. So that’s available. So, of course are all the criminal indictments…Bring ’em on. NOW! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Howdy, Ad and PPO. You all doing okay? glenn an hour ago

So we can agree that the GOP is now a terrorist, criminal mob, right? AdLib an hour ago

PPO–Ban him! glenn an hour ago

hiya glenn. Doing OK – just. Melbourne is in Lockdown for 5 days. Crowds excluded from the Tennis pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–oh, for sure. They’re not even paying lip service to the rule of law; the rules of the Senate–i.e. Senators meeting with the defense team; nor are they interested in facts. Cowardly, treasonous, anti-American cretins–all of them. glenn an hour ago

PPO – Yep, that’s the 14th Amendment Article 3, any elected official committing sedition or…giving aid or comfort to those committing it can be barred from holding office in the future. This is what’s needed after the corrupt Repubs let a traitorous Trump off the hook to do it all over again but worse. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, has there been a vote yet? All the news here is about our COVID outbreak pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Oh dear. Hang in there; hopefully, this, too shall pass. glenn an hour ago

PPO–No vote yet. Maybe tomorrow. glenn an hour ago

Ad–exactly. Schiff told repubs the RTLB would do it again if they let him off last year. Sure enough, he did it again; this time only worse. glenn an hour ago

Yeah, glenn, someone in an airport coffee shop who shouldn’t have been there. quick tracing, but our great Premier (State Gov,) is being cautious. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

We had a power failure last Saturday, which clobbered our Air Conditioning/heating! Partly fixed Thursday, but part needed for heater. at least the air-con is OK, but we worry about the repairmen observing hands, distance and masks. No one has been to our house in a year. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

All well my way, glenn. How did your tests turn out? AdLib an hour ago

yes, glenn, how went your tests? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – Which is why their BS call for “unity” was so obvious. The GOP is just a criminal enterprise now. AdLib an hour ago

I know it’s a moot point; but it sure sticks in my craw that repubs just shrug off the fact that the RTLB did NOTHING to stop the insurrection. He let it go on until he got tired of watching it, I guess. Yet, remember how outraged repubs were during the Benghazi hearings when there was all that nonsense about not sending help and “stand down” orders? Repubs were outraged; outraged, I tell you, because there was no help sent, and the help was 2-3 hours away by plane. Yet, right down the street from the White House, the RTLB watched with glee as his blockhead supporters trashed a government building and tried to murder his vice president! And yet, repubs are “yawn”. glenn an hour ago

They need to be RICOed. AdLib an hour ago

No vote yet, PPO. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, glenn, Hillary had him pegged in the debates! He will never change. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Sorry to hear that, PPO. Hope it’s fully fixed ASAP. AdLib an hour ago

Ad, apparently the DOJ are examining RICO-ing The Proud Boys – alla of ’em! Good. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey Murph! AdLib an hour ago

OK…made it…took a few minutes. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

hiya Murph! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–I think the quick tracing is the way to go, along with caution. Glad to hear you have air con glenn an hour ago

glenn, It is sorely needed this week, 30 plus forecast and high humidity. Yeuch! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Howdy all….I wrote a piece for several facebook based private groups about what Trump did and f ailed to do once the riot started with the thesis that this alone is enough to impeach him…dereliction of duty….failure to fulfill the duties of the commander in chief…boy did that narrow focus piss off folks on the right…..Yeah I post at a Trumper site…makes their eyes bleed. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

glenn – This is why I think most Americans need to see the GOP as an anti-American terrorist group. They oppose democracy and the rule of law. True enemies of the people. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–My biopsy turned out negative; I do not have the eye disease they thought I did. Still don’t know what caused the double vision and headache, though. Also, don’t know if I told you or not, but it was suspected I had gall stones (a totally different issue) and the ultrasound on that turned out negative, also. So, I had all these symptoms, but don’t know why. Will be doing a bunch of blood tests next week, so we’ll see if those turn up anything. I’m just a mess. glenn an hour ago

Murph, keep socking it to them, even though they probably won’t believe a word that hasn’t been issued by the Mobsters at Fox. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Yep, great that they’re looking at RICO for Proud Boys but with a little further investigation, they should RICO the GOP. AdLib an hour ago

Hey Murph! glenn an hour ago

Glenn….good health news but also not good…..an undiagnosed bolder around your neck….. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, they would probably need a whole new RICO departemnt for all that! Help the employment figures – a Twofer! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO…Fox is now moderate….One America News and News Max have taken the road to the right… MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Did everyone see the new breaking news, when McCarthy phoned Trump in the middle of the siege and asked Trump to stop it, Trump snickered, “I guess they’re more upset about the election than you are.” AdLib an hour ago

And Trump refused to do anything to stop them. AdLib an hour ago

Murph, I don’t have cable, so Fox never seen. But I see enough of Hannity and Carlson reaction tweets to believe that Fox won’t change much until they are outed. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad and the McCarthy said: “Who the fuck do you think you are….” but that moment of courage and truth passed and his real nature as a scared little piece of vermin reasserted itself and he crawled to Mira Lago beggin Mr. T for his blessing and donor list. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–good on ya! That’s what I keep going back to. The RTLB let those people trash the Capitol building and almost kill his own vice president; yet he gets a pass. I just don’t get it that breaking the law is okay if you don’t get what you want. Talk about IOIYAR! His tweet at the end when he said something like that’s what you get when we don’t get our way is such an admission of guilt, and as you say, dereliction of duty. glenn an hour ago

glenn – That’s good news that it wasn’t disease but now comes the frustration of trying to figure out what it is. AdLib an hour ago

PPO…and H and C are mild when compared with those on the other channels. Narrower and more rabid. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Murph–exactly. Since I don’t know what caused the double vision and the gall bladder symptoms, don’t know how to prevent it from happening again. glenn an hour ago

BLOTUS isn’t Pres any more, so why isn’t McCarthy and the GOP telling him to eff off and try and repair their trashed image somehow, if that is at all possible. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–Another admission of the RTLB’s guilt. How can you be president of the United States and take pleasure in lawlessness? glenn an hour ago

Murph – All the same, you can bet The House Managers will bring up that McCarthy-Trump convo tomorrow to prove further Trump intended and perpetuated the sedition and violence. AdLib an hour ago

Ad–Yeah, I’m afraid I’m in for a lot of medical testing before it’s all over. glenn an hour ago

BRB MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

PPO–Because they’re afraid of what the RTLB’s base will do to them in the next election. It’s not about doing what’s right; it’s about staying in office. glenn an hour ago

What’s fascinating is that as Trump’s image becomes more and more toxic, as he loses more supporters, the GOP is staying tied to him. Trump is sinking like the Titanic and they are choosing to be pulled down with him because his cultists are the base of their party. The GOP has been overrun by the walking dead, no turning back now. AdLib an hour ago

Hopefully, glenn your tests will finalise the treatments you need. Fergie has to wait till end March to see the specialist about her right heart failure, COPD,Scoliosis and Uncle Tom Cobbley’s syndrome! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–The House Managers need to keep pounding that over and over again. The RTLB had no intention of stopping that insurrection; it’s exactly what he wanted; which is essentially what he told McCarthy and what he tweeted at the end, when he said “That’s what you get”. glenn an hour ago

And Tuberville has confirmed that he told Trump on the phone that Pence had just been evacuated for his safety and that was before Trump posted his attack on Pence. AdLib an hour ago

glenn, If he forms a new party, wouldn’t that be the kiss of Death to the GQP? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I am back….we are having a mega freeze here….single digit temps 8 days is what it is going to last….and then we are going to have three days of heavy snow….a lot to get ready for…. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Honestly, I think Trump would have been ratified if Pence had been killed. AdLib an hour ago

PPO..you and fergie are walking a rocky and steep road….your faithfulness is an inspiration. MurphTheSurf3 an hour ago

Ad, Pence’s SS detail surely told BLOTUS’ SS detail of their movements. Trump knew and did nothing, because Pence didn’t annul the election for him. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–I agree. I just keep shaking my head watching these silent repubs as every day it becomes more clear that the RTLB wanted to commit sedition; actually committed sedition; and has absolutely no remorse about committing sedition. Yet, there are too many repubs who are never mentioned in the press, who are just staying silent. I keep hoping that they will have an attack of conscience and speak up, but I guess they’re all too far down the rabbit (trump) hole now. glenn an hour ago

Trump didn’t call or talk to Pence during the siege nor for 5 days. He wanted Pence dead for not obeying his dictatorial demands. AdLib an hour ago

murph, simply, she is my life. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–Hopefully. And hopefully for Fergie, too. My best to her. glenn 44 minutes ago

The last of the Trump flag displays in my area went down yesterday….last night at the bar..one the big Trump fans said….” Trump is acting like a loser….I can’t believe it.” MurphTheSurf3 44 minutes ago

PPO – And Trump’s lawyers flat out lied today in an impeachment trial in The Senate, saying Trump didn’t know that Pence was being hunted. Usually, it is a hard and fast law that any lie in COngress by anyone other than a member is a crime. AdLib 44 minutes ago

Thanks, glenn. wishing you a speedy solution and recovery. pinkpantheroz 44 minutes ago

How can Pence keep his silence….(and that silence does say a lot)? MurphTheSurf3 43 minutes ago

Murph, I can see you quietly smiling to yourself and saying not a word, which must drive them nuts! pinkpantheroz 43 minutes ago

glenn – We always suspected that the GOP was an evil enterprise but their support for inciting an insurrection against the U.S. put an exclamation mark on that. AdLib 42 minutes ago

PPO….yeah, that’s me….sitting quietly in the corner sipping my cup of weak tea….not on your life….I guffawed…… MurphTheSurf3 42 minutes ago

PPO–If the RTLB forms a new party; it could be the death of the GOP. However, I don’t think the RTLB will form a new party. First of all, he doesn’t have the political savvy to do so, nor do any of his “advisors”. Look at how incompetent their administration was. I think he’ll just keep threatening, bluffing, because that is his M.O. But actually doing the work and effort it takes to form a new party….no way, IMO> glenn 42 minutes ago

Murph,

pinkpantheroz 41 minutes ago

PPO – Pence’s aides have come out today to state that Trump DID know Pence was running for his life and released that attack tweet against him with that knowledge. AdLib 41 minutes ago

PPO…I knew an Aussie would get my weak tea reference. MurphTheSurf3 41 minutes ago

Murph, I’m Irish! but i get it! pinkpantheroz 40 minutes ago

Murph–your weather forecast sucks! glenn 39 minutes ago

glenn, what you say makes sense, so why is the GQP persisting? rhetorical. pinkpantheroz 39 minutes ago

AND Glenn Dr. T the RTLB is going to be running from his pursuers….the law, debt collectors, and the many who now really tell the truth about him. MurphTheSurf3 39 minutes ago

I think that after this, the GOP will continue to shrink, at least gradually, and be seen by the majority of Americans as an adversary of America, democracy and law and order. AdLib 39 minutes ago

PPO….I thought you were from down under? No? Ireland…..the weather opposite of the world. MurphTheSurf3 38 minutes ago

Ad–You think the insurrection would have worked if Pence had been killed? The repubs would have had the nerve to overturn the election? glenn 38 minutes ago

glenn – Agreed, Trump was only using the threat of starting a new party to extort Repubs into voting not guilty in the trial. The real question is whether Never Trumpers go so far as to try and start another party. There’s no home for them now though they are welcome to vote with Dems. AdLib 37 minutes ago

Ad, sorry to say I doubt it. All they need to do now is to yell ‘Socialism’ at every Dem proposal. they will still get traction with the poor dumb buggers that still believe their crap. pinkpantheroz 37 minutes ago

Murph–poor, brain dead RTLB fans. The RTLB is not only acting like a loser; he is a loser! glenn 37 minutes ago
