    I don’t think that Trump could get a fair trial anywhere in the country. I don’t know if he could find a fair, unbiased judge anywhere in the country.

    Regarding his impeachment....I think that the ends justify the means. The totality of his Presidency is bad enough that he should be forcibly removed so that he can’t run again and the Nation can heal. Last week’s tragedy, by itself, is not grounds for impeachment. But his conduct especially since the election has been deplorable.

    I am a lot more concerned about the censorship, black balling and insensitivity to all things conservative. If this had happened 40 years ago, my career would have been shot. I can’t believe what we are seeing, but I am going to have to accept it. I was a conservative and a nationalist. Today’s country and world has no place for me. I have to be satisfied that heaven has a place for me, although I have some things that I have to change.

    I just dont understand the guy. Why would you go through all the work it took to make
    policy changes that help people, then not have enough control of yourself not to throw it all away.

    Why would you have most republicans get run through the ringer to support him during the first
    impeachment, only to make sure the senate loses its control.

    Why in heavens sakes would he now refuse to resign and put himself, his family, his party through
    the most difficult time it has ever seen.

    When his actions destroy everything around him, make family political differences more at odds
    what in the world does he have to gain ????

    He's not rational and he's not accustomed to playing by anybody's rules. He can't admit that he was wrong or that he failed. He's right and everybody else is wrong.

    I went back to the beginning of the Trump 2020 thread for the helluva it. Some of the early 2020 posts are hilarious. Trump will carry at least 45 states, etc.

    Ironic that Impeachment was the highlight of the year.

    Here's an oldie but a goodie:

    Complete full of shit video full of lies and brainwashing talking points the leftists need to hear.

    My friend as long as you tune into CNN MSNBC ABC and any local news. You have no chance of ever knowing any truths. They brainwash millions with their echo chamber, operation Mockingbird and you are swept up in it. Instead of listening to President Trump speak, millions are told what to think about words he does not say. You are no different.

    No one here yet has brought words from his mouth to justify being impeached. Guess why?

    Nothing he said or did incited insurrection. Nothing.
    I challenge anyone here to prove me wrong. It cannot be done. It's easier to brainwash into believing there is anything then it is to prove me wrong. Laughable how easily you are made to believe in something that does not exist.

    It is well documented the election was a fraud with vote switching and ballot stuffing. Avalanche of evidence. Without the brainwashing you could see it.

    Plain & simple minds accept his call to a rally and to express their 1st amendment rights of freedom of assembly, as inciting insurrection. He did nothing to incite any violence. Prove me wrong.

    Best Frank Zappa Quotes
    1. “A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.” ~ Frank Zappa
    2. Music is the only religion that delivers the goods.” ~ Frank Zappa, Frank Zappa quotes on music
    3. “Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find it to be an ‘inconvenience.’ We have opted instead for an authoritarian system disguised as a Democracy. We pay through the nose for an enormous joke-of-a-government, let it push us around, and then wonder how all those assholes got in there.” ~ Frank Zappa Quotes
    4. “The universe consists of 5% protons, 5% neutrons, 5% electrons and 85% morons.” ~ Frank Zappa
    5. “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” ~ Frank Zappa
    6. “There are only two things to remember. Number one…Don’t Stop, and number two…Keep Going!” ~ Frank Zappa
    7. “The most important thing to do in your life is to not interfere with somebody else’s life.” ~ Frank Zappa
    8. “Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.” ~ Frank Zappa
    9. “Reality is what it is, not what you want it to be.” ~ Frank Zappa
    10. “Modern Americans behave as if intelligence were some sort of hideous deformity.” ~ Frank Zappa
    11. “Power will be maintained by the groovy guy or gal who gets the most media coverage for his sleaze. Naturally, his friends in various businesses will do okay, too.” ~ Frank Zappa
    12. “I’m vile and perverted. I’m obsessed and deranged. I’ve existed for years but very little has changed. I’m the tool of the government and industry too. For I’m destined to rule and regulate you. You may think I’m pernicious, but you can’t look away. I’ll make you think I’m delicious with the stuff that I say. I’m the best you can get… have you guessed me yet? I’m the slime oozing out of your TV set.” ~ Frank Zappa
    13. “You can bet everything will come to an end. It’s going to be ugly and it’s going to be a mess, and it’s going to be something that somebody did in the name of God.” ~ Frank Zappa
    14. “Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST.” ~ Frank Zappa
    15. “Politics is the entertainment branch of industry.” ~ Frank Zappa, Frank Zappa quotes on politics
    16. “It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out the uglier everything seems.” ~ Frank Zappa
    17. “Stupidity has a certain charm – ignorance does not.” ~ Frank Zappa
    18. “Anybody who wants religion is welcome to it, as far as I’m concerned–I support your right to enjoy it. However, I would appreciate it if you exhibited more respect for the rights of those people who do not wish to share your dogma, rapture, or near the destination.” ~ Frank Zappa
    19. “Republican is fine if your a millionaire. Democrats is fair if all you own is what you wear. Neither of them’s really right, cause neither of them cares.” ~ Frank Zappa
    20. “Schools train people to be ignorant, with style. They give you the equipment that you need to be a functional ignoramus. American schools* do not equip you to deal with things like logic; they don’t give you the criteria by which to judge between good and bad in any medium or format, and they prepare you to be a usable victim for the military-industrial complex that needs manpower.” ~ Frank Zappa
    21. “Republicans stand for raw, unbridled evil and greed and ignorance smothered in balloons and ribbons.” ~ Frank ZappaQuotes
    22. “It’s better to have something to remember than anything to regret.” ~ Frank Zappa
    23. “Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.” ~ Frank Zappa
    24. “It has never mattered to me that thirty million people might think I’m wrong. The number of people who thought Hitler was right did not make him right… Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?” ~ Frank Zappa
    25. “In every language, the first word after “Mama!” that every kid learns to say is “Mine!” A system that doesn’t allow ownership, that doesn’t allow you to say “Mine!” when you grow up, has – to put in mildly – a fatal design flaw.” ~ Frank Zappa
    26. “I enjoy irritating the people who enjoy being irritated.” ~ Frank Zappa
    27. “I would say that today, dishonesty is the rule, and honesty the exception. It could be, statistically, that more people are honest than dishonest, but the few that really control things are not honest, and that tips the balance.” ~ Frank Zappa
    28. “My best advice to anyone who wants to raise a happy, mentally healthy child is: Keep him or her as far away from a church as you can.” ~ Frank Zappa
    29. “As far as rearing children goes, the basic idea I try to keep in mind is that a child is a person. Just because they happen to be a little shorter than you doesn’t mean they are dumber than you.” ~ Frank Zappa
    30. “One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people’s minds.” ~ Frank Zappa
    31. “As long as you’re just smart enough to do a job and just dumb enough to swallow what they feed you, you’re gonna be alright. But if you go beyond that then you’re gonna have these grave doubts that give you stomach problems, headachesmake you want to go out and do something else. So, I believe that schools mechanically and very specifically try and breed out any hint of creative thought in the kids that are coming out.” ~ Frank Zappa
    32. “You know, people are basically shitty. It’s when they prove it over and over again that it gets obnoxious.” ~ Frank Zappa
    33. “You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.” ~ Frank Zappa
    34. “The only difference between a cult and a religion is the amount of real estate they own.” ~ Frank Zappa
    35. “The last election just laid the foundation of the next 500 years of Dark Ages.” ~ Frank Zappa
    36. “Censoring what you say is one of the ways in which people who are not nice can take away your personal freedom.” ~ Frank Zappa
    37. “Interviewer: ‘So Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?’ Frank Zappa: ‘You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?” ~ Frank Zappa
    38. “If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.” ~ Frank Zappa
    39. “I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.” ~ Frank Zappa
    40. “The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. Remember the apple on the tree? Okay, it was the Tree of Knowledge. You eat this apple, you’re going to be as smart as God. We can’t have that.” ~ Frank Zappa
    41. “There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.” ~ Frank Zappa
    42. “I’m not black, but there’s a whole lot of times I wish I could say I’m not white.” ~ Frank Zappa
    43. “It isn’t necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia. Eventually, within the next quarter of a century, the nostalgia cycles will be so close together that people will not be able to take a step without being nostalgic for the one they just took. At that point, everything stops. Death by Nostalgia.” ~ Frank Zappa
    44. “A wise man once said, never discuss philosophy or politics in a disco environment.” ~ Frank Zappa
    45. “Without deviance from normality, there can be no progress.” ~ Frank Zappa
    46. “The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced.” ~ Frank Zappa
    47. “All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff…Basically what people want to hear is: I love you, you love me, the leaves turn brown, they fell off the trees, the wind is blowing, it got cold, you went away, my heart broke, you came back, and my heart was okay…Modern music is people who can’t think signing artists who can’t write songs to make records for people who can’t hear. Most people wouldn’t know good music if it came up and bit them on the ass…If lyrics make people do things, how come we don’t love each other?” ~ Frank Zappa
    48. “Of course it’s contrived, but once you know how its contrived, you can understand the editorial viewpoint. CNN, for example, when you see where they’re really coming from, you can subtract their bias, and get some sort of facts. Sometimes the amount of bias that is imposed in these things is so laughable that it gives you an extra layer of entertainment.” ~ Frank Zappa
    49. “There’s a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.” ~ Frank Zappa
    50. “We pretend to be a free society, and we pretend to be an adult society, but if you look at the facts, our news is just as contrived, and controlled as Pravda!” ~ Frank Zappa
    51. “It’s fairly obvious, since Richard Nixon, that there is no such thing as a fair deal for any voter in the United States — You’re just not gonna get it. It’s a joke — the people that you vote for, they’re the next best thing to criminals. But of course they have money for advertising campaigns that make them look a little bit better than they actually are.” ~ Frank Zappa
    52. “America was founded by the refuse of the religious fanatics of England, these undesirable elements that came over on the Mayflower. Ignorant, religious fanatics who land here and abuse the Indians.” ~ Frank Zappa
    53. “There are more love songs than anything else. If songs could make you do something we’d all love one another.” ~ Frank Zappa
    54. “lf you’re going to deal with reality, you’re going to have to make one big discovery: Reality is something that belongs to you as an individual. If you wanna grow up, which most people don’t, the thing to do is take responsibility for your own reality and deal with it on your own terms. Don’t expect that because you pay some money to somebody else or take a pledge or join a club or run down the street or wear a special bunch of clothes or play a certain sport or even drink Perrier water, it’s going to take care of everything for you.” ~ Frank Zappa
    55. “A drug is not bad. A drug is a chemical compound. The problem comes in when people who take drugs treat them like a license to behave like an asshole.” ~ Frank Zappa

    Text of a Letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate
    NATIONAL SECURITY & DEFENSE

    Issued on: January 13, 2021
    SHARE:
    ALL NEWS
    Dear Madam Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)

    Pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order taking further steps to deal with the threat posed by the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) increasing exploitation of United States capital to resource and to enable the development and modernization of its military, intelligence, and other security apparatuses which continue to allow the PRC to directly threaten the United States homeland and United States forces overseas, including by developing and deploying weapons of mass destruction, advanced conventional weapons, and malicious cyber-enabled actions against the United States and its people.

    Through the national strategy of Military-Civil Fusion, the PRC increases the size of the country’s military-industrial complex by compelling civilian Chinese companies to support its military and intelligence activities. Those companies, though remaining ostensibly private and civilian, directly support the PRC’s military, intelligence, and security apparatuses and aid in their development and modernization. At the same time, they raise capital by selling securities to United States investors that trade on public exchanges both here and abroad, lobbying United States index providers and funds to include these securities in market offerings, and engaging in other acts to ensure access to United States capital. In that way, the PRC exploits United States investors to finance the development and modernization of its military.

    To deal with that threat, I signed Executive Order 13959 on November 12, 2020. Executive Order 13959 prohibits certain purchases involving publicly traded securities, or any securities that are derivative of, or are designed to provide investment exposure to such securities, of any Communist Chinese military company. Those companies are ones the Department of Defense has listed, or will list, pursuant to section 1237 of Public Law 105-261, as amended, or are identified as Communist Chinese military companies or their subsidiaries by the Secretary of the Treasury using similar criteria.

    Today, I signed an Executive Order amending Executive Order 13959. The amendments prohibit certain sales as well as purchases of publicly traded securities, or any securities that are derivative of, or are designed to provide investment exposure to such securities, of any Communist Chinese military company. They also prohibit possession of such securities by United States persons 1 year after a company is determined to be a Communist Chinese military company. And, finally, they allow the Secretary of Defense publicly to list whether a company is a Communist Chinese military company using the criteria in section 1237(b)(4)(B) of Public Law 105-261, as amended by section 1233 of Public Law 106-398 and section 1222 of Public Law 108‑375, regardless of whether the Secretary must report that determination under section 1237(b)(2).

    I am enclosing a copy of the Executive Order I have issued.

    Sincerely,

    DONALD J. TRUMP

    Trump's late personal physician (RIP, btw) and Frank Zappa. I'm beginning to see a pattern here.

    I hope Trump invokes the EO, now that he has the guard in place.
