See you then! AdLib 2 hours ago

Hi, Ad. Well, a great hearing start last night. Thompson didn’t pull punches. pinkpantheroz 2 hours ago

Absolutely and Cheney really laid out the whole 7 stage plan well. AdLib 2 hours ago

And Trump’s guilt was unequivical in both of their speeches. AdLib 2 hours ago

She was impressive. Jusy goes to show, sadly, how the rest of the Republicans have descended into the FNG’s hellhole. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

I really disliked the old style of Repubs but some of them at least had a sense of principle and patriotism. Today, they’re all frightened liars who only want power and money. AdLib an hour ago

They ran a bit out of steam with the witnesses statements, but that is only to be expected. We can look forward to more skewering next week. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Agree, some of them have a smidgin of conscience and dedication to the Constitution. I never thought I’d say this, but Pence did the right thing. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

The big puzzle piece that put so much of the plan together for me is that the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers acted as an advance force to attack the fencing and herd the Trump-angered protesters into the Capitol. This has to be why their charged with sedition. AdLib an hour ago

This can be the problem with logistically planning a hearing to lay out the case for the DoJ while trying to hold citizen-viewers. AdLib an hour ago

Hey TW! Looking forward to the next hearing? AdLib an hour ago

Quested’s testimony and filming of the PBs and OKs in the carpark was powerful. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hello all, yes I am. twilson117 an hour ago

Hi, TW~! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hey PPO twilson117 an hour ago

glenn! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hello Glen twilson117 an hour ago

Pence did do the right thing. Was it because he had decent counsel telling him he could be liable for criminal violations of the Constitution and sedition and he did it out of fear? Maybe so, he doesn’t seem principled otherwise. AdLib an hour ago

hey glenn! What did you think of the hearing last night? AdLib an hour ago

I don’t care what motivated him, it was enough to stop the overthrow. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Good evening/afternoon all. Hope everyone is doing well. glenn an hour ago

PPO – And someone mentioned that the FBI has been reviewing Quested’s video with a lip reader to figure out what they were saying when at a distance. AdLib an hour ago

Thanks glenn, doing well today. And you? AdLib an hour ago

PPO-been a lomg tie since we were both here at the same time! How are you? glenn an hour ago

Ad, yes, and I shouldn’t be surprised to get the results later. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hello CL twilson117 an hour ago

Hello, y’all I am going to try this tonight. choicelady an hour ago

Hi, glenn, yes, long time. I’m managing to cope without Fergie1 by keeping busy volunteering at my sailing club. Health OK. 4 jabs now. how are you? pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO – Agreed, I’m very appreciative Pence didn’t fold but at the same time, it’s a little sad that when someone doesn’t side with sedition, they’re treated as a hero. That should be a basic thing that all pols should do, they take an oath to do it. AdLib an hour ago

HI, cl! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Hi CL. So your vision is still a bit challenging? AdLib an hour ago

Hi TW, Ad, glenn, and PPO – let’s see. Seeing being the operative word. Hi PPO! choicelady an hour ago

Yes – better, no question after the haze of yesterday, but still questionable. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Glad it is at least better! AdLib an hour ago

this growing older stuff needs work. I will put in an angry letter as soon as I get an address. choicelady an hour ago

Pence is a turd, but for once he did right. No hero, though. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Ad–didn’t watch it live, but did see a tape of Cheney’s speech and I’m impressed. Time to lock him up! glenn an hour ago

I agree with you about Pence PPO twilson117 an hour ago

PPO – Agreed. Pence did have the authority, in the absence of ANY communication from TFG, to take command. But so what? choicelady an hour ago

So 20 million people watched the hearing last night. Granted, most were older but that’s to be expected. Younger people were more likely to watch it streamed or not watch at all. Still, that is a chunky number. AdLib an hour ago

CL–so good to see you! How are you? glenn an hour ago

Frankly I’m still processing what I watched last night. twilson117 an hour ago

It wasn’t a flop as TFG said. As FOX said. We were ON it. choicelady an hour ago

CL – Does God have a Complaint Department up there? If so, can I talk to a manager? AdLib an hour ago

Ad – I’m trying to find the url or email for the God complaints line. I’ll let you know. choicelady an hour ago

I heard on the Nicole Wallace’s show 20 million watched last night. twilson117 an hour ago

Impressed how Johnstone skewered TFG straight away, no waffle, just called him a criminal. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

Tw – yes – and that was just on TV, never mind livestreaming. choicelady an hour ago

glenn – It was so powerful. Murph was watching with a group of Dems and after the first part of the presentation, many were emotional. It really hit hard. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – Yes indeed. choicelady an hour ago

CL I’m guess it was far more than the idiots over at Fox thought twilson117 an hour ago

Ad and glenn – I cried again as I had 1/6. This is terrifying to me. choicelady an hour ago

Was Murph with Dems? I thought he was in the Redneck section! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

PPO–I know how difficult it is to keep on after losing a spouse. So glad to hear you’re coping by getting involved in activities. I’m doing well. glenn an hour ago

TW – I kind of feel that way too, I’ll be processing that hearing by watching the others and having the blanks filled in. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – Murph has found a Blue community around St. Louis if not his home area. choicelady an hour ago

Ad I agree with you on that there is so much to take in twilson117 an hour ago

glenn – it is lovely to see you. I’m glad you’re doing well. choicelady an hour ago

Thenks glenn. I’m travelling to Ireland and US in July to finalise Fergie’s headstone and visit her pals and VOX pals in San Francisco. pinkpantheroz an hour ago

As I mentioned to PPO, the key part of the hearing for me was learning that The Proud Boys and Oath Keepers acted as an advance troop to plow through the barricades and drive the crowd that Trump prepped to “Fight like hell!”, into The Capitol. The plan is now so clear to me. AdLib an hour ago

PPO – We can hardly wait to see you! choicelady an hour ago

CL–Growing old is not for the weak! glenn an hour ago

To all: What was the biggest takeaway for you in the hearing? AdLib an hour ago

Ad – I had known about the PBs and OKs as advance units. But it was STILL powerful to see the whole depiction of them not just in words. choicelady an hour ago

The Blubbermouth is toast! pinkpantheroz an hour ago

glenn – NO. It is NOT. choicelady an hour ago
