Biden Justice Department Needs To Prosecute Traitors In Congress Who Promoted Insurrection!

Once Merrick Garland is confirmed as Attorney General of the United States, which should happen next week, it is essential for the department to prosecute traitors in Congress who promoted insurrection on January 6, 2021, with emphasis on the “ring leaders”, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, along with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

In theory, all of the 139 House Republican members, about two thirds of the total Republican contingent in that chamber, and all 8 of the US Senators, who refused to authorize the election of Joe Biden even after the Capitol Insurrection, should be expelled and prosecuted, but the leaders of the Sedition are more likely to be pursued, as the instigators of the treason!

And the people around Donald Trump, including the former President, also need to be held accountable, so that this domestic terrorism is stopped dead in its tracks!

And every single American who stormed the Capitol and can be identified, needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law as well!

Merrick Garland The Right Person To Be Attorney General Of The United States!

Merrick Garland is the right person to be Attorney General of the United States in these difficult times legally, due to the disaster of Donald Trump.

Denied a hearing for the Supreme Court in 2016, after his nomination by Barack Obama, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senate not willing even to meet with him for consideration for the position, Garland now comes on the scene and will do what is right regarding the many outrageous legal actions and maneuvers of the Trump Presidency, including the horrifying Capitol Insurrection on January 6, 2021.

After a long career of prosecutions, including the investigation and the prosecution of the Oklahoma City Bombers in 1995, and service as Chief Judge for the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit for 23 years, Garland will restore the good name of the Justice Department, and will remind us of morality and ethics in law enforcement.

Garland could end up as the most significant member of the Joe Biden Cabinet!

Ted Cruz Is A Monster, The Most Wretched Public Figure Outside Of Donald Trump!

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas is a monster, whose face and demeanor create the image of him being the Devil Incarnate!

Cruz is disliked by all his Senate colleagues, and he has no shame, or ethics, or morals, or principles!

Cruz is only interested in his own advancement, having no regard for anyone else, and allowed Donald Trump to call his wife ugly, and his father as involved in the Kennedy assassination, and yet go to dinner at the White House with his wife.

Now he was blaming his daughters for his decision to escape the horrible Texas Freeze which has led to a massive disaster for millions of people, and to run off to Cancun, Mexico, and only return hurriedly when he realized how horrible an image he had created for himself.

But he has no conscience, and even lies about his behavior in the midst of the Texas Freeze.

He also was one of the two culprits in the Senate, along with Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, to inspire the Capitol Hill Insurrection by their unjustified challenge to Joe Biden’s Electoral College win on January 6, 2021.

By all sense of justice, both Cruz and Hawley should be prosecuted for treason and sedition, and serve time in prison, and also be first expelled from the US Senate.

In 2016, this author and blogger thought Cruz was more dangerous than Donald Trump, and now Donald Trump is the only more wretched public figure in 2021 than Ted Cruz, although there is a long list of political leaders who are competitive as being worse than anyone except Cruz and Trump!

Joe Biden Is “Presidential” In First Town Hall, While Donald Trump Is Petty And Infantile In Attack On Party Critics

President Joe Biden had his first Town Hall last evening on CNN, with Anderson Cooper as the interviewer.

It was so refreshing to see a President who acts “Presidential”, and his warm, engaging personality came through, as well as his sincerity, honesty, and genuine nature.

After the horrors of mentally ill, unstable Donald Trump plaguing the nation for four years with his hatred, racism, nativism, misogyny, and pure ignorance of domestic and foreign affairs issues, it was great to see a President who has real goals and plans, and is backed up by Vice President Kamala Harris, who is truly decent, and not a religious hypocrite as Mike Pence was.

No wonder that Joe Biden has a 62 percent rating, after one month in office, while Donald Trump NEVER reached 50 percent!

It is time to stop news coverage of the felon who was our 45th President, and who is spending his time wreaking havoc on the party that elected him to a disastrous term in the White House. Trump is showing how lacking in appreciation he is at the sacrifices of Mitch McConnell and other Republicans who went out of their way to support him in his two impeachment trials!

Lawsuit Against Donald Trump And Rudy Giuliani And Right Wing Hate Groups Under Ku Klux Klan Act Of 1871

A lawsuit against Donald Trump, Rudy Guiliani, and two right wing hate groups has been filed in court under the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, passed to deal with domestic terrorism in the South during Reconstruction after the Civil War.

This law was passed and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant, and now, the NAACP and Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi is taking the fight to hold Trump, Guiliani and the terrorist groups in the Capitol Insurrection of January 6, 2021 accountable under criminal law.

So these two racist demagogues will face trial and prosecution for their inciting the attack that caused the death of seven people, including three Capitol Hill Officers, and caused great damage to the Capitol Building, the symbol of American democracy!

And every member of Congress who participated in the scam about a corrupt Presidential Election of 2020 must also face similar lawsuits and trials, including Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who claims that there was no Insurrection on January 6, 2021. For trying to promote that fake news alone, Johnson should be punished with expulsion and a prison term, as a disgrace to his state and to the institution of the US Senate!

The Most BiPartisan Impeachment Trial In American History

Donald Trump may have been able to avoid conviction in his second Impeachment Trial yesterday, but it was the most bipartisan impeachment trial in American history, nevertheless.

11 Republican House members moved to impeach Trump for his inciting of the January 6, 2021 Capitol Insurrection, including Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger as the most prominent, and 7 Senate Republicans (Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey, Bill Cassidy, Richard Burr) vote to convict Trump.

The vote of 57-43 to convict was ten votes short of the two thirds required, but if this was a piece of legislation, or an election, a percentage of 57-43 would be seen as a landslide!

Donald Trump has poisoned the Republican Party, and sadly, the state committees in the states where Republicans showed principle, have gone ahead and censured those courageous House and Senate members.

But in the long run of history those 11 House members and 7 Senators will stand tall, and the Republican Party is doomed for its allowing itself to become the party of Trump, and the effort to preserve democracy and the future, if any, of the party of Lincoln, TR, Ike and Reagan, must be waged for the security and safety of the nation in the future!

Donald Trump will go down in the long run as the worst President in American history, lower than James Buchanan and Andrew Johnson, because he will be seen as a Fascist authoritarian who endangered the nation, and he will face prosecution as an ordinary citizens for many crimes, including the events of January 6, 2021!

Criminals In The Republican Party: Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Kevin McCarthy And Others Need To Be Prosecuted!

As the Second Donald Trump Impeachment Trial came to an end today, with only seven Republicans joining the Democrats for conviction, ten votes short of the two thirds vote required to convict, one thing is very clear!

The criminals in the Republican Party who promoted sedition and treason, and refused to accept the Electoral College votes, even after the Capitol Insurrection on January 6, 2021, need to be prosecuted by the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland, once he finally has his hearing to lead the Justice Department, and is confirmed.

It is clear that the Republican Party has delayed hearings for Garland, who already was mistreated in 2016, when his nomination to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court was prevented by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

It may well be the most difficult position in the Biden Cabinet to be Attorney General in the present political climate, but justice demands that the Justice Department pursue prosecution of Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, the ring leaders in the promotion of Insurrection, but also six other Senators who joined them, as well as 139 House members, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California.

And while now Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was not part of the treason-sedition crowd, he should be condemned for failing to support the conviction of Donald Trump!

It Is Time For Mike Pence To Condemn Donald Trump, And Call For His Conviction!

As the prosecution finished its case for the conviction of Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial in one year, there is one thought that crosses this author and blogger’s mind, and it seems hard to believe that no one is talking about this thought.

It is time for former Vice President Mike Pence, who was slavishly loyal to Donald Trump for four years, to do what he should do—condemn Donald Trump, for having no concern about the danger Pence faced on January 6, 2021, and call on Republican Senators for his conviction, and inability to run for public office again!

How could Pence avoid doing this is impossible to fathom, as even if Pence sees himself as a future President, Donald Trump abandoned him and would not support him for a future nomination, and ethics, morals, and principles should be enough to convince Pence that he must end the public career of a man who was ready to see him murdered, and did not intervene to protect him!

If Pence called for the conviction, there is a chance that 17 Republican Senators, at a minimum, would back the former Vice President, as eliminating Trump as a potential opponent in the future would benefit all Republicans, who wish to seek the Presidency.

So it is time NOW for Mike Pence to show some guts and courage, and work to end the public career of Donald Trump!

Absolutely Brilliant Presentation By House Prosecutors In Donald Trump Second Impeachment Trial

America can be proud of the nine member House Prosecution in the Second Donald Trump Impeachment Trial.

Watching their presentation evokes great emotions, at the tragedy of what happened on January 6, 2021.

January 6, the day of the Capitol Insurrection, will always be remembered in the same vein as September 11, 2001; December 7, 1941; and November 22, 1963, as days of mourning.

Jamie Raskin, the leader of the nine prosecutors, made every decent American proud, but the other eight prosecutors also demonstrated how decent and patriotic they are, and they will be well remembered in the long run of history.

The fact that one extra Republican, Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, joined five other Republicans in legitimizing the trial, was a good development, but eleven more Republicans need to join the six (including Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania) to convict Donald Trump, and prevent him ever running again for public office.

If the Republicans were a decent group, which they are not, that would happen, but is highly unlikely to occur!

The Battle For The Soul Of The Republican Party Is In Full Swing As Trump Impeachment Trial Begins

The Republican Party is in its death spiral as the Donald Trump Second Impeachment Trial begins on Tuesday.

With only 5 Republican Senators supporting the move toward an impeachment trial; with only 10 Republican House members voting for the impeachment trial; with only 11 Republican House members supporting the action to take away the committee memberships of QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, it is clear that the battle for the soul of the party of Lincoln, TR, Ike, and Reagan is in full swing.

Will the Republican Party allow Donald Trump to remain their “God”, their “Savior”, and continue to promote conspiracy theories, hate, nativism, racism, anti semitism, Islamophobia, and misogyny?

Will they follow the lead of Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Liz Cheney, Larry Hogan, Adam Kinzinger and other mainstream conservatives?

Or will they follow the lead of Donald Trump, Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and others who promoted insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021?

We saw the disintegration of the Whig Party in 1854, with its replacement being the Republican Party, and we may be seeing the same situation as we had then in the 2020s, as the “Trump” wing of the party is a disaster that never ends!
