Theofascist U.S. Supreme Court has us sane Americans down — but not out

The American people did not elect this guy as the president of the United States of America. Per Wikipedia, seven of the nine U.S. Supreme Court “justices” identify as Catholic, and only one of those seven, Sonia Sotomayor, is moral and sane.

It’s clear that the 6-3 wingnut majority on the U.S. Supreme Court — again, an illegitimate Supreme Court — are going scorched fucking earth on the American public. When might they ever have this opportunity to shove their backasswards theofascist ideology down the throats of the majority of Americans again? You have to strike while the iron is hot, no?

The theofascists’ strategy very apparently is to keep those of us Americans who are sane so busy re-fighting the battles that we’d already won decades ago — such as that women get to control their own bodies and that our publicly funded schools cannot be extensions of any church or other religious organization –– that we can’t fight for actual progress.

However, we do have what’s called checks and balances in the United States of America, and we, the people, can and must rein in the out-of-control, anti-democratic Supreme Court (again, the majority of whom were appointed by “presidents” who were not actually even elected by the majority of the American people).

First, a mention of the court’s latest backasswards opinion that surely is blessed by the Vatican, which the court issued from the bowels of hell yesterday. The Washington Post reports:

The Supreme Court ruled [yesterday] that a school board in Washington state discriminated against a former football coach when it disciplined him for postgame prayers at midfield, the high court’s latest decision favoring the protection of religious faith over concerns about government endorsement of religion.

Justice Neil M. Gorsuch wrote for fellow conservatives in the 6-to-3 decision, saying Bremerton High School assistant coach Joseph Kennedy’s [gee, do you think he’s Catholic?] prayers are protected by the Constitution’s guarantees of free speech and religious exercise. He said the school board’s discipline of Kennedy was unwarranted, even under the concern of violating the separation of church and state.

“Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic — whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head,” Gorsuch wrote. “Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected” by the Constitution.

Gorsuch was joined by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Amy Coney Barrett. Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh joined most of the opinion.

The court’s three liberals dissented, as they had in last week’s ruling that Maine cannot bar religious schools from receiving public tuition grants extended to other private schools.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote that the majority “elevates one individual’s interest in personal religious exercise, in the exact time and place of that individual’s choosing, over society’s interest in protecting the separation between church and state, eroding the protections for religious liberty for all.”

Joined by Justices Stephen G. Breyer and Elena Kagan, Sotomayor added: “Today’s decision is particularly misguided because it elevates the religious rights of a school official, who voluntarily accepted public employment and the limits that public employment entails, over those of his students, who are required to attend school and who this Court has long recognized are particularly vulnerable and deserving of protection.” …

Keep in mind that assistant coach Kennedy was not simply praying by himself, silently or otherwise, which I’d accept was his First Amendment right to do, but that he was leading football players in prayer. And as Dave Zirin, writing for The Nation, points out:

… There is a greater issue that the majority [of the Supreme Court], in their zeal, chose to ignore: the freedom of the students to not pray. I’m sure they would say that this freedom remains, and no one has to pray if they choose not to. But such a perspective is risible. Anyone who has ever played high school sports knows that if your coach is doing something, particularly something religious, and expects you to join, then you had better do it. To stand out and say, “I am Jewish” or “I am Muslim” or “I am an atheist” — or even simply “I don’t want to do that” — is to be labeled a distraction, a locker-room cancer, or worse.

The coach — particularly if they are a malignant narcissist (and make no mistake, we are living in the salad days for malignant narcissists) — will often make you pay a price with the greatest power they have over you: playing time. But it’s not just about limiting your time on the field. It’s also about making you an outcast among your teammates, a prospect in your teen years about as painful and harmful as not being able to play a sport you love. It’s easier to just take a knee for a minute rather than reap the whirlwind of anger from your coach. That is why this is not about freedom but coercion. [Emphasis mine.] …

Indeed, the theofascists’ claim/lie that they’re only actually trying to protect religious freedom — instead of trying to impose their “Christian” beliefs on everyone — crumbles when you consider that these very same people demanding that our taxpayer-funded public schools become arms of their “Christian” churches would scream bloody fucking murder if their sons and daughters felt coerced to join in, say, Jewish or Muslim observances at a public fucking school.

No student should feel coerced into any religious beliefs at a public school, and no taxpayer should have to subsidize rank proselytizing at our public schools, even in public schools that are located in overwhelmingly “Christian” areas.

If you want your child to get a “Christian” education, then send your child to a private “Christian” school — and stop trying to GROOM other people’s children into becoming sick, brainwashed Christofascists like yourself!

Again, we have a system of checks and balances, and it’s past time to check the theofascist-majority U.S. Supreme Court. We have different ways to do this, and we should consider all of them:

  • Expanding the court to put actually sane, actually law-abiding justices on it, as I’ve already discussed.
  • Actually impeaching U.S. Supreme Court justices, especially Clarence Thomas, whose wife’s illegal meddling in the 2020 presidential election has seriously tainted the court; Thomas’ removal from the court is more than warranted. And the “justices” are not fucking monarchs or little popes, but ultimately serve at the will of the American people, even if getting rid of them isn’t easy (it should be easier to get rid of them than it is).
  • Passing federal laws to reverse the damage that the Supreme Court has done and still plans to do, including by codifying abortion rights and codifying that public schools may not use taxpayer dollars to proselytize, but must remain religiously neutral/secular. This probably would necessitate the elimination of the filibuster, which can be done on a simple majority vote in the U.S. Senate.

The theofascists on the Supreme Court want all of us to just give up in defeat and despair.

That is the last thing that we, the sane, should do if we don’t want to see our nation devolve into a fascist theocracy.

It will take hard work to reverse the Supreme Court’s damage without a civil war, but we, the people, can do it. (Again, though, I never take violent revolution off of the table in a time of tyranny, as we’ve been seeing for a while now, with the tyranny by the minority over the majority.)

Our best hope, short of a civil war, is at the ballot box; we must do everything to prevent the election of (theo)fascists to public office and we must do everything that we can to expand the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, and demand that the Democratic senators, if they want our (continued) support, support eliminating the filibuster in order to save our nation. And if they don’t, we must remove them from power. (We can begin by handing DINO U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema her princess ass to her in 2024. Thus far, I support U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego primarying her sick and sorry ass in 2024.)

How the minority seized the U.S. Supreme Court (and maybe finally sparked the next U.S. civil war)

Five of the current nine U.S. Supreme Court “justices” were chosen by two “presidents” who had lost the popular vote. If it feels to you like the current Supreme Court doesn’t represent the majority of the American people, that’s because it doesn’t: five of the “justices” were picked by “presidents” whom the American people did not actually elect and who thus were illegitimate “presidents” — and President Barack Obama treasonously and anti-democratically was denied a pick altogether.

How did we get to this point today, the day that the U.S. Supreme Court, now solidly dominated — 6-3 — by right-wing nut jobs (actually, they’re fucking fascists; “nut jobs” sounds too innocuous), ruled (5-4) that each state may decide whether or not a woman may obtain an abortion after it was decided in 1973 by Roe vs. Wade that no state may entirely prohibit abortion?

How did the anti-choice minority view — about two-thirds of all Americans support Roe vs. Wade — prevail in this fight for a woman’s basic right to choose what goes on inside of her own fucking uterus?

Let’s go back to the “election” of George W. Bush as president in 2000.

The official popular vote count for the presidential election of 2000 was 50,456,002 votes for Repugnican Bush and 50,999,897 for Democrat Al Gore.

Gore won the popular vote by 543,895 votes, yet, because of the Electoral Collegeand because of the infamous intervention of the U.S Supreme Court in the determination of a presidential election outcome — Bush, the minority’s chosen candidate, nonetheless became “president.” The pick of the majority of the American voters simply did not matter.

On September 29, 2005, “President” Bush’s first pick to the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

You might argue that yes, Bush “won” “re”-election in 2004 — the official popular vote count for that presidential election was 62,040,610 to 59,028,444 in Bush’s favor, a difference of 3,012,166 votes this time.

However, I’d argue that obviously had Bush not been installed as president when he’d lost the popular vote of 2000, of course he never could have been “re”-elected in 2004. Because Bush’s first presidential term was illegitimate — because he had lost the popular vote — I never accepted his second term as legitimate either, because his second term depended on the fruit of the poisonous tree from 2000.

Bush went on to get another right-wing U.S. Supreme Court “justice” confirmed — Samuel Alito, who authored today’s official decision to kill Roe vs. Wade — on January 3, 2006.

Fast forward to the next presidential election in which the loser of the popular vote still became “president”: In 2016, the official popular vote count was 65,853,514 for Democrat Billary Clinton to only 62,984,828 for Repugnican Pussygrabber; Pussygrabber lost even more bigly than did George W. Bush in 2000: he lost by 2,868,686 popular votes.

Yet the illegitimate “President” Pussygrabber would go on to nominate three U.S. Supreme Court justices in just his one (and what must be his only) term.

Former President Barack Obama, who won the popular vote in 2008 and in 2012, put only two justices (Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan) on the Supreme Court during his two terms — and infamously and treasonously was denied a third pick to the nation’s highest court when then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell treasonously and anti-democratically refused to allow the Senate to recognize any nomination to the Supreme Court by Obama in the wake of the overdue death of fascist “Justice” Antonin Scalia on February 13, 2016 — even though Obama had had almost a full year of his presidency left.

So “President” Pussygrabber’s first pick for the U.S. Supreme Court — Neil Gorsuch, who was confirmed on April 7, 2017clearly had been stolen from Obama.

The unelected-by-the-majority-of-the-American-people Pussygrabber would go on to make two more right-wing-nut-job/fascist picks to the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh, who was confirmed on October 6, 2018, and Amy Coney Barrett, who was confirmed on October 26, 2020, even though the Repugnicans had told us that Obama couldn’t have a nomination to the Supreme Court so “close” to a presidential election (Barrett was confirmed only about a week [eight days] before the 2020 presidential election, while, again, Obama was denied a pick to the court with almost a full year of his second term remaining).

So under the Repugnicans’ own fucking argumentation in regards to the “required” timing for Scalia’s replacement on the court, Amy Coney Barrett clearly is illegitimate, and, of course, before her, Gorsuch illegitimately was put on the nation’s high court, because that pick clearly had belonged to then-President Obama.

But, even all of this aside, if we believe that only the majority of the American voters should pick the U.S. president, who then should be able to make nominations to the U.S. Supreme Court, then George W. Bush’s picks for the Supreme Court — Roberts and Alito — are illegitimate, since Bush never legitimately became president in the first fucking place. And ditto, of course, for the illegitimate Pussygrabber’s picks to the court, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett.

That’s five current U.S. Supreme Court “justices” who were nominated by “presidents” who had lost the popular vote. That’s five illegitimate Supreme Court “justices” — four of whom voted to kill Roe vs. Wade.

(Roberts did not vote to kill Roe, but of course Clarence Thomas did, because he is Clarence Thomas, who I always believed committed sexual harassment and thus never belonged on the U.S. Supreme Court in the first fucking place; I always have believed Anita Hill. [And, of course, Thomas’ baby-boomer cow of a wife’s meddling in the 2020 presidential election, which should land her behind bars along with the dozens of other traitors who illegally and treasonously tried to overthrow the 2020 presidential election results, alone makes Thomas an illegitimate Supreme Court “justice” — and a prime candidate for impeachment and removal. Thomas bemoans that the American people don’t trust “our” institutions anymore, but look what the hypocritical piece of dog shit Thomas has done: he probably committed pre-disqualifying sexual harassment, he apparently has allowed his wife to try to change the outcome of a presidential election, and he helped to kill Roe vs. Wade — and now he wants to deprive Americans of even the right to use contraception and to have sex with or marry a member of their same sex, although, of course, he’ll keep the right to have a mixed-race marriage intact, not because it’s the right thing to do, but because, being the typical baby-boomer asshole [redundant] that he is, he wants to retain his own rights while cavalierly destroying others’ rights.])

So that’s how we got to where we are today in the United States of America: the tyranny of the minority over the majority. Even though the clear majority of Americans support Roe vs. Wade, which had been settled law for almost five decades, the minority once again has acted against the majority.

Again, the American people had spoken: In 2000 and in 2016, the majorities of them — of us — voted for the Democratic candidate for president. Instead, because of the anti-democratic, obsolete Electoral College, the minority prevailed, and imposed on the American people were two Repugnican “presidents” for whom the majority of us did not vote, and these two fascist “presidents” put five fascists on the U.S. Supreme Court.

This, along with the blatant, bad-faith theft of President Obama’s third pick to the Supreme Court, is how the minority took over the Supreme Court — by 6-3, no less.

While I’d never rule out violent revolution by the majority against the tyrannical minority — if the minority dares to treasonously and anti-democratically tyrannize the majority, the tyrannical minority deserves whatever the fuck it gets — there are some ways that we, the majority of the American people, can take our nation back from the minority, even within our corrupt system of so-called “democracy,” including:

  • We need to abolish the Electoral College. The popular vote alone should decide who gets to sit in the Oval Office inside of the White House. It’s supposed to be one person, one vote, but the Electoral College gives the minority in the red states significantly more say in the presidency than their actual population does. This blatantly anti-democratic bullshit must stop.
  • We need to get enough U.S. senators to abolish the filibuster so that the U.S. Senate can enlarge — yes, pack, if you will — the U.S. Supreme Court. The number of justices on the Supreme Court is set by the U.S. Congress, not by the U.S. Constitution, so if the Democrats were in control of the U.S. House of Representatives and were in control of the U.S. Senate (and eliminated the filibuster, if necessary, which they could do on a simple majority vote, as the filibuster of course also isn’t in the U.S. Constitution, but is an obsolete, anti-democratic Senate rule, much like the Electoral College is obsolete and anti-democratic), they could add as many Supreme Court seats as they pleased (again, the Constitution fully allows this). After how the Repugnicans brazenly stole seats on the nation’s highest court, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. A situation in which only one side of the divide plays by any rules or norms at all is not tenable.
  • We need to radically reform the U.S. Senate, and this would be significantly more difficult than abolishing the Electoral College or finally killing the filibuster or expanding/packing the U.S. Supreme Court. The fact that no matter how tiny its population is each state gets two U.S. senators — while no matter how huge its population is, each states gets only two U.S. senators — clearly is anti-democratic. An analysis by Vox’s Ian Millhiser in November 2020 found that in the current 50-50 U.S. Senate, “the Democratic half [represents] 41,549,808 more people than the Republican half.” This anti-democratic situation no longer is tenable, and off of the top of my head, I’d start with this suggestion: Change the U.S. Constitution so that each state does not get two (and only two) U.S. senators, but, instead, each state gets from one to three U.S. senators, based upon its population, much how the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives that each state gets is determined by its population. We could keep it at 100 U.S. senators, but reapportion the number of senators based upon the states’ population (again, with one, two or three senators, based on the state’s population).* If it were necessary, I’d be OK with adding seats to the U.S. Senate (100 senators is an arbitrary number), but in any case, each state getting two senators each regardless of its population must end. Of course, the red states wouldn’t vote to change the U.S. Constitution to give them less representation in the U.S. Senate, even if their current level of representation is unfair (and it is blatantly unfair). It might be that only a civil war — a great fucking reset — could reform the U.S. Senate so that the minority doesn’t get to continue to tyrannize the majority in a so-called “democracy.”

Yes, that’s pretty much where I am: I’m OK with a second U.S. civil war at this point. The treasonous right wing has brought it on by insisting on running roughshod over the majority of us Americans who disagree with their politics and their (theo)fascist “vision” for the United States of America. We Americans don’t even get to vote for U.S. president, for fuck’s sake, not when the Electoral College simply hands the presidency to the fucking loser of the popular vote.

Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — the name of today’s dazzlingly overreaching U.S. Supreme Court decision, in which the minority yet once again has tyrannized the majority — very well might prove to have been the most proximate salvo fired in the Second American Civil War.

P.S. More to the point of the majority-illegitimate U.S. Supreme Court ruling that each state may decide whether or not a woman may control her own uterus, while I’m not a woman and so of course won’t ever need an abortion, and while I live in a state that has codified abortion rights into state law, the rolling back of anyone’s rights — perhaps especially by unelected theocrats wishing to impose their backasswards religious beliefs on the rest of us — is disturbing, and, of course, if it’s open season on others’ rights, your rights might be on the chopping block next. (And, of course, the Dobbs ruling might be just the intended first step in the theofascist-controlled U.S. Supreme Court ruling that no state may allow any abortion at all.)

I’m hoping that Dobbs inspires us, the majority, to finally take our nation back from the tyrannical minority — bloodlessly, if possible, but bloodfully, if necessary.

*Even if my plan to change the system so that each state gets one to three U.S. senators based on its population were enacted, the smallest states still would be overrepresented in the U.S. Senate based on their population, but this still would be a move in the right — that is, the actually democratic — direction.

The devastation continues (or: Lock him up!)

Getty Images news photo

Rudy Giuliani, the leader of Team Abnormal, now cannot practice law because of the blatant “stolen-election” lies that he peddled on behalf of fascist former “President” Pussygrabber. I wonder if Rudy the drunk now thinks if it all has been worth it (and if he’s ever sober enough to be even able to think at all).

Last night I watched (via YouTube) the second televised hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives committee to investigate the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol in the seditious attempt, led by former “President” Pussygrabber, to ignore the will of the clear majority of the American voters and to keep Der Fuhrer Pussygrabber in power anyway.

(I wasn’t up for watching it when it originally aired in the morning yesterday; you can watch all of the hearings — live, as they happen, or later, at your convenience — via the committee’s YouTube channel here. If you missed the first hearing, I recommend that you watch it, too.)

The January 6 committee’s second hearing perhaps is even more devastating than was the first one last Thursday.

The second hearing confirms what I’d always figured happened behind the scenes: Those serving Pussygrabber who wanted a career after him and/or didn’t want to go to prison and/or just didn’t want to go down in history as having aided and abetted the fascist asshole who was the first “president” in U.S. history to refuse to concede after clearly having lost a presidential election all either quit or were fired over Pussygrabber’s manic insistence that they support his wholly unsubstantiated — or, as former U.S. Attorney General Bill Bar repeatedly called them in his testimony, “bullshit” — claims that he actually won the election, which was “stolen” from him.

It perhaps was most revealing that Pussygrabber’s own campaign manager, Bill Stepien, copiously testified that not only had he (along with others) told Pussygrabber not to declare victory when there were so many ballots still to be counted (most of them vote-by-mail ballots), but that an increasingly desperate and flailing Pussygrabber, whose deficient vote totals weren’t showing him beating Joe Biden as they came in, not only held fast to his premature, bullshit claim that he’d won the election, but held on to any and every bullshit claim of “election fraud” brought to his attention by virtually any crackpot or sycophant.

One by one, Pussygrabber’s team of those with any sense of self-respect and professionalism — Stepien calls them “Team Normal” — either resigned or were fired, as Pussygrabber replaced them with what I’ll call Team Abnormal: the drunk Rudy Guiliani, who, because of his drunken attempts to help Pussygrabber steal the election now cannot practice law; the bizarre, very apparently cray-cray, Cruella de Vil-like “lawyer” Sidney Powell (who wants to steal your votes for Joe Biden instead of your puppies), who has been sanctioned and fined for her frivolous (a.k.a. bullshit) legal filings on Pussygrabber’s behalf; and Lawyer Barbie, a.k.a. Jenna Ellis, whose level of integrity matches her level of intelligence.

The second hearing demonstrates that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Pussygrabber was told repeatedly by those around him that he had lost the 2020 presidential election and that he should allow a peaceful transition of power.

This most decidedly is not what he wanted to hear, however, so he simply found pieces of shit who were perfectly willing to tell him what he wanted to hear (that is, he found and created Team Abnormal).

Were it not for the January 6 committee and its power to subpoena the actors surrounding the eventual events of January 6, 2021, what we know now happened then behind the scenes might have been lost to U.S. history.

Now, it’s a permanent part of U.S. history.

It is a stain that cannot be whitewashed, however much the treasonous Repugnicans (for the most part, that’s redundant) try to delude themselves that it can be.

As committee vice chair Liz Cheney herself noted in yesterday’s hearing, while many of the small actors who took Pussygrabber’s call to seditious action seriously on January 6, 2021, are being prosecuted for their actions, their ringleader remains free.

This must change.

The U.S. Department of Justice cannot simply overlook the first “president” in U.S. history orchestrating the first attack on the U.S. Capitol since the War of 1812 in order to treasonously, seditiously try to keep himself in power against the clearly expressed will of the American people that he not remain in power, but that he be relegated to the dustbin of history, where he belongs.

If Pussygrabber is not criminally tried for his crimes, our democracy will be in grave peril.

And to not criminally try Pussygrabber out of any concerns that his mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging flying monkeys might act up again will only put control of the United States of America in the hands of the said fascist flying monkeys.

Devastating (or: Lock him up!)

Associated Press news photo

Lock him up!: While former “President” Pussygrabber clearly instigated the seditious attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, in a fucktarded, backasswards attempt to keep himself in power against the will of the majority of the American voters (as pictured above), he remains free while those who carried out his orders are being prosecuted for their crimes. Until Pussygrabber himself is prosecuted for his high crimes and treason, we cannot say that in the United States of America we have justice for all.

Wow. I just watched (via C-SPAN) the first televised hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives committee to investigate the events of January 6, 2021. In a word: devastating.*

What happened on that fateful day is crystal fucking clear: It was a coordinated effort — at then-“President” Donald Trump’s behest — among the domestic terrorist groups the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers, along with hundreds to thousands of other mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging fascists, to try to prevent the transition of power in the White House against the wishes of the clear majority of the American voters who in November 2020 had voted to oust then-“President” Donald Trump and to install Joe Biden as the new U.S. president.

From what I can tell, many if not even most of those domestic terrorists who participated in the mob attack on the U.S. Capitol — and every single one of them who participated in the attack in any capacity (even just being there inside of the Capitol, as being there was illegal) perpetrated domestic terrorism — truly believed that they were doing the right thing because the presidential election truly had been, they incorrectly believed, stolen.

Nonetheless, no matter what their beliefs were, no matter how sincere they were or were not in those incorrect beliefs, they violated our laws and our Constitution, and for that, every single last one of them should be held accountable for their criminal, treasonous acts to the full extent of the law.

The biggest question of all, however, is how Donald Trump remains a free man.

Donald Trump, whose words and actions led to deaths and injuries on January 6, 2021, in his attempt to illegally, treasonously, anti-democratically and anti-constitutionally hold on to power, should be behind bars right now, as I type this sentence, awaiting criminal trial for his treasonous, felonious actions against the people of the United States of America.

Traitor Donald Trump can be allowed to be “president” again only over the dead bodies of us true patriots who believe in democracy and in the U.S. Constitution, including the peaceful transfer of power when your preferred presidential candidate fucking loses the presidential election.

Any Repugnican or other individual who actually tries to minimize — or even, despite the copious video and other documentation of the events of January 6, 2021, to deny — what took place on that day is a fucking traitor.

The Repugnican Party does not deserve a continued existence if it now supports the idea — and it very apparently does — that if the Repugnican candidate loses the presidential election, you simply try to install the Repugnican candidate nonetheless, via force, violence and terrorism.

Kudos to U.S. Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for defying the dumbfuck Kevin McCarthy and the many other fascists and traitors who comprise the majority of the Repugnican Party and who put Pussygrabberianism/fascism far above our democracy and our republic.

If the Repugnican Party is to have any future at all, it will be only through the likes of Cheney and Kinzinger, with whom I have many political differences, but who at least don’t operate on politically convenient, treasonous “alternative facts.”

The United States of America cannot stand on “alternative facts.” The U.S. can survive divergent opinions, as it has for generations now, but once basic fucking fact is no longer recognized by a critical mass, we will have civil war and/or perhaps the final destruction of our nation.

*Mentally ill and/or abjectly stupid, ignorant people are totally untouched by the facts and the evidence and they will continue to believe their cray-cray to their graves. This I already know fully. We can and should write them off already.

But the rest of the nation needs to watch these hearings, and we must not forget the events of January 6, 2021.

Our survival as a democratic nation depends on it.
