People need to step back from the details and focus on the single, most damning point:

There was no legitimate, lawful reason for a defeated president to be summoning a mob to the Capitol.

His constitutional responsibility was to oversee a peaceful transition of power.

We are losing sight of the simplest indictment.

A president who lost an election refused to accept his defeat and instead fomented insurrection.

A president violated oath and law at the moment when his duty most called for safeguarding our democracy’s sustaining principle.

Donald J. Trump, having been defeated, led a two-month campaign in violation of the constitutional mandate that he effect a peaceful continuation of our democracy.

This is, in my mind, as vile a treason as any ever committed.

Impeachment is insufficient.

Donald J. Trump, having been defeated, led a comprehensive effort to thwart the transition of power to the incoming administration.

His fomenting of violence was but a last sedition in a long campaign of treasons.

He must be not only removed but prosecuted.

If the President of the United States can personally attempt to lead a coup from the Oval Office without punishment, we are not a nation of laws.

We are a ship adrift and listing toward the ruin of fascism.

Our democracy demands Trump be prosecuted. It demands it.

Hahahahaha. This is fantastic. Database people, laugh with me here...

“When users deleted their posts, the site failed to remove the content and instead only added a delete flag to it.”

They just populated a flag!

Hahahha. They basically made the FBI’s job as easy as possible.

Parler required users to send in photographs of their real IDs to create an account.


The files from posted videos often include GPS metadata.

So, Parler recorded who the person was, where they were standing and then kept the post even after “deletion”.

The comedy:

1) Parler was likely just a complete trainwreck of an app because its creators only cared about making money

2) They built the FBI’s absolute dream app. Complete identification of users, location of many posts and retention of deletes.

Somehow, the very worst fuckopotami (plural of fuckopotamus) have gotten the wholly errant message that the people they have horrified for four years are now hoping for a group hug.

Speaking only for myself: fuck the absolute entirety of that.

I’m talking to you, @senatemajldr

I’m talking to you, @GOPLeadership

I’m talking to you, @marcorubio

I’m talking to you, @Jim_Jordan

I’m talking to you @SteveScaliseGOP

I’m talking to you, @FoxNews

I’m talking to you, #MAGA

Fuck every last one of you.

We didn’t want to win the White House, Senate, and House because this is a playground game of kickball where you win or lose and then just play again.

Right now, there are tens of thousands of people who fully believed:

1) the scumbags were actually the good guys
2) the good guys were criminals
3) the scumbag heroes were going to wipe out the good guy criminals

And now the scumbags they thought were heroes all just got banned
These Q following whackadoos fully believed this was the giant day of reckoning where everyone from Obama to Pelosi was going to be destroyed.

And now, all the people who told them that just got wiped out on Twitter, FB, etc.

Imagine the world-rocking cognitive dissonance there
Some are going to get with reality upside the head like a 2x4.

Most though... they can’t even process what just happened... and the people they rely on to spoon feed them nonsense just went bye-bye.

Going to be a wild reckoning over in their whackadoo corners.

Total meltdown.

Some of the dopes who worship Trump are having a crushing realization that they got played by an idiot and are now screwed.
Sadness is settling over the citizens of Dumbfuckistan like a golden fog.

It’s like the final scene of The Usual Suspects but with the world’s dumbest detectives unraveling a riddle everyone else had solved five years ago.

While everything was generally terrible today, I did have this quite un-small Cornish Pasty.

It was spectacular. Image
For those asking, it is filled with meat and potatoes. Almost like a shepherds pie in a buttery pastry.

(Not my actual pasty but looked more or less like this) Image
Wait, I didn’t mean potatoes. I meant vegetables. Carrots, potatoes, etc.
