History is going to show Liz Cheney's words come true.

"I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible; there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain."

"Today on CBS’s Face the Nation, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who is on the January 6th committee, called out Republicans who have rallied behind the Big Lie, saying: “I don’t really know many people around [Trump] who truly believe the election was stolen,” and if Trump “truly believes the election was stolen, he’s not mentally competent to be President.”

"As the atmosphere around Trump gets hotter, there are cracks appearing in the Republican Party’s support for the former president. Today, Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, said on Fox News Sunday that former president Trump is “politically, morally responsible” for the events of January 6, although Hutchinson expressed the opinion that the committee has not yet established that the former president is criminally liable. Hutchinson said, “Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future, and not simply adhere to the basic instincts of some of our base.” *

    isle,

    Honestly!

    You GOPaphobes!

    You suggest that the GOP formed a circle around Trump and have defended the Jan 6 riot to a person.

    As po'd say, EFFIN LIAR!

    Most GOPs despise Trump. Most think he's despicable. Most SwampGOPs will outright oppose Trump during the primary season and will vote for him...with trepidation...only when they have to, to prevent whatever moron your side runs, if it comes to that.

    pb was on SS, while the Jan 6th riot was taking place, condemning it! Sean effin Hannity was BEGGING Trump to speak out against the riot as it was taking place. GOPs are defending the riot, or Trump.

    Talk about the Big effin Lie!

    But, yes. Most of us know that the Dems committed substantial vote fraud in the 020 presidential election. Did your side steal it? Probably. But, we'll never know for certain. But nearly all of us have moved on. Joe Biden is our, very bad, President.

    Your error in this is in thinking that anyone who's not already a wacko on your side or mine is going to care about this.

    My guess is, at the end of today, the lead news story will not be these ridiculous hearings. People care about gun legislation in the Senate. The Fed doing something on interest rates will matter more, if that happens today. A Supreme Court decision on guns or abortion.

    Every time people drive by a gas station, they're reminded that we have problems today. No one cares about your silly little Show Trial.

    "You", Hate,“ and the rest of the Republicans who have been pushing the big lie, "need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future, and not simply adhere to the basic instincts of some of our base.”

    Here is an example of what I'm talking about when I said "you need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here.

    Hate wrote: "You suggest that the GOP formed a circle around Trump and have defended the Jan 6 riot to a person.

    As po'd say, EFFIN LIAR!"


    Read what my post actually said, do not reply with your distortion of it.

    From isle's posts:

    Read what my post actually said, do not reply with your distortion of it.

    *****

    Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future, and not simply adhere to the basic instincts of some of our base.”


    Just what I said: "You suggest that the GOP formed a circle around Trump and have defended the Jan 6 riot to a person."

    All GOPs were painted with a broad brush:Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching...

    Not some GOPs. Not GOP supporters of OrangeMan. "Republicans need to..."

    There are soooooooo many reasons these hearing will bomb. One of them is that they don't address reality.

    GOPs began condemning the riot while it was taking place. They don't believe a Big Lie.

    "Read what my post actually said, do not reply with your distortion of it."


    Hutchinson said, “Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future, and not simply adhere to the basic instincts of some of our base.”

    He was referring to "you" and the 70% of the Republicans that you say defend the big lie. Nowhere in anything I posted did I or anyone else say "all Republicans" in fact the quote you are trying to use as part of your distortion is from Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican.

    isle,

    From Jimmy Failla (the guy whose Fox News Radio show immediate precedes that gay Guy Curt's never heard of):

    For the BILLIONTH time: nobody on the right thinks Jan 6 was okay. We just don’t agree w/ the left’s ridiculous claim that there was an attempt to overthrow the most powerful government on earth led by a guy in a Chewbacca bikini.


  7. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 7:17 am

    Re: Hutchinson said, “Republicans need to do a lot of soul searching as to what is the right thing here and what is the right thing for our democracy in the future, and not simply adhere to the basic instincts of some of our base.”

    Not the "some of our base" part.

    I was watching when he said that. And, pb agrees. There will be the temptation to respond in kind to the Dems and this attempt to turn this issue into a preview of the Battle of Armageddon. The temptation is there, no doubt.

    But, in truth, we were heeding this advice already. No doubt there are some Ultra-MAGAs still obsessed with 020. But, most of us know that Joe Biden won the election, even if he won it through fraud. Our best choice is to look to the future.


  8. by islander on June 13, 2022 7:22 am
    I'm watching the opening of the second part of the hearings and will respond to you later.


  9. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 7:40 am

    I have it on, too. They're just gabbing now. FNR just reported that one of the scheduled witnesses won't appear, didn't catch the name. His wife is in labor.

    Yes, the expletives have been deleted as well as the posts which contain them.


  11. by Ponderer on June 13, 2022 9:31 am

    "Yes, the expletives have been deleted as well as the posts which contain them." -Curt

    That's fine, Curt. As long as he saw them first.

    I am just totally fed up with his immoral, flaming bullshit and that of his political party. Liars and willfully ignorant, truth-averse sociopaths like him and the vast majority of the Republican party are literally destroying this country. These are not participants in our society. They are hostile enemies of it.


  12. by islander on June 13, 2022 10:14 am

    One thing nobody here can deny, Ponderer doesn't lie...She is a straight shooter who tells it like it is, and I for one appreciate that !!! 👍


  13. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 10:41 am

    "One thing nobody here can deny, Ponderer doesn't lie...She is a straight shooter who tells it like it is, and I for one appreciate that !!! "

    And, with more eff bombs per hundred words than any sailor could possibly spew.

    BTW, I only quoted po's ugly language to point it out.


  14. by Ponderer on June 13, 2022 10:46 am

    F-bombs in no way alter or affect the truth and reality of anything I said.

    And what I've begged you to do for years is still a desperately needed thing for you to do.


  15. by islander on June 13, 2022 12:13 pm

    There are soooooooo many reasons these hearing will bomb. One of them is that they don't address reality."

    LOL !!! This from the guy who believes the election was stolen, subjectivity is truth, and that he brings himself wherever he goes therefore what he believes is true IS true regardless of whether or not it conforms to reality !!


  16. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 12:29 pm

    F-bombs in no way alter or affect the truth and reality of anything I said.

    But, they create issues for Curt that can, possibly, impact his relationship with Google. He's splained that...

    ...and, still, you drop the bombs!


  17. by Ponderer on June 13, 2022 1:43 pm

    And you're the big whiny baby crying your eyes out about it.


  18. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 2:26 pm

    po,

    I respect the concerns Curt expressed. Clearly, you don't.


  19. by islander on June 13, 2022 3:01 pm

    I think cursing should be allowed when responding to internet trolls LOL !!!


  20. by HatetheSwamp on June 13, 2022 3:09 pm

    Perhaps.

    Take that up with Google. I'd effin support you. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!


  21. by islander on June 13, 2022 3:25 pm

    As you especial would know, Google would probably agree with you and the rest of the trolls.

    So you are safe.
