Punish backers of Jan. 6 insurrection

While watching President Biden’s address on Jan. 6, 2022, I wondered if removal of citizenship could prevent someone from holding office.
The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution addresses citizenship, among other things. It states a natural born citizen cannot have citizenship removed, but there is action that can be taken for specific acts against the United States.
Section 3 states: “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Section 5 states: “The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.”
Previously, Rep. Steve Cohen (TN-09), the chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties, introduced such a measure to enforce Section 3.
It seems to me, this disqualification is a real possibility and may be becoming more probable as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth continues to emerge.

Stefanik will hold China accountable

Rep. Elise Stefanik stands firm against China, and others should take note.
While we are entering year three of the pandemic, many in Washington seem to be trying to sweep the origins of COVID-19 under the rug and want the American public to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
While this may be true for many politicians, it is far from true for Rep. Stefanik. This past summer, Stefanik helped introduce a bill which would hold China accountable and identify those who silenced doctors and journalists who spoke out at the onset of the pandemic.
The proposed legislation would also impose sanctions on China’s top health officials and bar American universities from entering into new contracts with China’s National Health Commission.
The world must never forget what China has done, and they must be held accountable for their deplorable actions.
Stefanik is noble to stand up and speak out against such a tyrannical and evil regime, which is responsible for the misery of millions. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci has no qualms about working with CCP scientists and defended modest collaboration with them in studying the coronavirus.
How can we trust a nation who silences their own doctors and scientists? I applaud Elise and her efforts to hold China accountable.

Riley Duesler ,Stefanik is nothing but a Trump sycophant. On China I have no qualms about punishing China if they indeed release this virus But first I would have to see undeniable proof. Which there isn’t any yet. The ravings of the worst president in American history doesn’t count as proof. You should be more concerned how Trump ineptness on how he handled the virus here to borrow a phrase from trump himself “it was a disaster”…William and the others please don’t comment he closed travel from China as you always do. It was too little too late. The virus was coming in rom Europe by then.

christopher S.

Thank you for clarifying the truth this disaster in the US has one owner and he’s relaxing if Florida stirring the pot trying to make things worse stefanik is NY Taylor greene

In 2022 we have a Republican Ron Johnson, running for a 3rd term as a senator from Wisconsin who said:

“Why do you think we can create something better than God in terms of combating disease? Why do we assume that the body’s natural immune system isn’t the marvel that it really is?”

This idiot has had covid (October 2020) and claims to be unvaccinated. He has pushed the various unproven treatments for covid and regularly questions the efficacy of vaccines.

I expect him to refuse all medical treatment for any serious diseases he might suffer. He should rely on prayer only and divine intervention to help him with anything from a cold to cancer.

We all marvel at the immune system that has developed over millions of years of evolution. But that evolution, at least in some of us, has developed a brain capable of realizing that that immune system can be helped by medical interventions in fighting a variety of diseases, as well as cures for many types of cancers and other diseases. If the idiot develops diabetes, I trust he won’t use insulin.

Imagine where we would be in our struggle against measles, mumps, polio, cancer, auto-immune diseases etc. if everyone thought like this fool from Wisconsin.

I really want all people who feel this way to stop seeking medical help when they fall ill, stop clogging up our hospitals; stay home and pray for a cure. In that way, we can stop the spread of their dangerous ideas and evolution might help to remove them from the gene pool.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Unfortunately Christopher, the rationing has already begun. Due to the high numbers of people being admitted to hospitals with covid, the clear majority unvaccinated, elective surgeries are being postponed across the country. People who need joint replacements and other elective surgeries will have their suffering prolonged because of the willful stubborn ignorance of about one-third of our population.

A notorious example of one such selfish ignoramus is in my post above.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Add to that the shortage of healthcare workers due to them leaving their professions for various reasons, one of which is being completely stressed out, and many missing work because they have fallen ill with COVID and healthcare is on very thin ice.

Add me to that list. All the planning for my hip replacement surgery which was supposed to happen earlier this week went out the window at the end of last week when simultaneously my surgeon reported a positive test for COVID, and the hospitals went into what is indeed, healthcare rationing.
This surgery is actually a year overdue and this condition is a boat anchor I’ve lived with every day. Not life-threatening by any stretch, but the kind of reality the many who refuse vaccination and other protocols to stay healthy have caused the rest of us, mostly through selfishness and anti-social behavior.

Dr. Steven Corwin, the CEO of New York Presbyterian Hospital, from Governmor Hochul’s Jan. 9th COVID update:

“We currently have about 1,200 cases in our hospital system, very representative of most of the downstate hospitals. We’re about 20 percent higher than we were last year at this time, but much less in the way of cases in our ICU’s and much less in the way of cases requiring a ventilator, so we’re very thankful for that. Of the cases in the hospital, as you mentioned, about 50 percent are admitted with COVID and 50 percent admitted for COVID. Of the patients in the hospital, 50 percent are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated and 50% have two doses of the vaccine.”
“Very, very rare to see somebody admitted who’s had a booster. Thankfully, very little within the way of children being admitted, which we hope will continue and same percentage is 50 percent with COVID, 50 percent for COVID. The patients requiring the ICU’s are older sicker and mainly unvaccinated.”

CYNTHIA SWANSON

Isn’t Ron Johnson the same idiot who said that gargling with Listerine would kill the Covid virus? He can’t tell the difference between germs and viruses?

Really thought Wisconsin voters were more intelligent…

William Marincic

I wonder if that’s any less ridiculous or more ridiculous than Hank Johnson telling a general during a hearing that Guam would tip over if 36,000 troops were added to the island. I don’t know how that guy found his way out of the birth canal let alone get elected

ANTHONY J SANTO

That accusation against a Congressman is so ludicrous it doesn’t merit response. But just to show you how foolish your criticism is, I will explain.
Congressman Johnson did not, obviously, mean this literally. He meant, as he explained, that he meant the island’s infrastructure would be overwhelmed by too many people on the island.

Just wondering, could the fact that he is African American cause you to be so ready to jump on a poor choice of words to discredit an honorable public servant? Oh wait, that can’t be. I forgot you are 12.5% Black, so you can’t be prejudiced, my apologies.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Same idiot, and he’s running again. I hope residents of Wisconsin really get to know what he stands for, besides the Mara Lago Monster.

“How can we trust a nation who silences their own doctors and scientists?”

Why don’t you ask that of the previous administration that silenced and vilified Dr. Fauci and other scientists who were just trying to provide information to the public based on the most current data at the time.

Florida2015

Matt, The right and the likes of Rand Paul continue to this day. I know the media has a job to do and wants to present both sides so the RW scream machine doesn’t get better ratings, but to keep beating this drum every time Paul speaks is getting old.
As far as China, covid and Stefanik in the big picture it happened. As pointed out a lot of our problems with covid came from the lack of response in the early days. Is her “standing” up to China just a distraction to divert attention from that dereliction in the beginning, or from the J/6 committee? I vote both.

William Marincic

TDS is on full display today. Here is what I know about democrats, especially the ones that post here. They have no thoughts of their own, every thought is told to them by CNN, MSNBC or Jen Psaki. When someone posts an imposing opinion, they all come out and attack and start calling them names and insulting them.
Merriam Webster calls these people;
Full Definition of bigot
: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices
especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Ray, he actually does exactly what he accuses us of doing in his post! From now on I am going try to avoid saying anything other than “take cover another BM has been dropped on us.”

LOUIS RESTIFO

LOL Anthony, I think that’s a great reply and I too will use it.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Continuation of some of yesterday’s posts. – Sorry it’s negative, but I don’t like baseless Innuendos of my character thrown around. Words matter and I certainly don’t like most of yours.

William Marincic
January 9th, 2022
Are they, I’m vaxxed and boosted I know many others from my church that are vaxxed and boosted. I know that lots of people under 30 years old or not vaxxed and boosted at least the ones that I’ve spoken to. I know that lots of African-Americans are not vaxxed or boosted and I know a lot of Democrats are not vaxxed or boosted.

What does it tell you when william puts “African-Americans” in a category of their own? Shouldn’t one assume they would be included in “lots of people under 30 years old”? Shouldn’t one assume they would be included in “a lot of Democrats”?

No, not for William, apparently Black people that are under 30 years old, or Black Democrats, in his mind, are not the same as good old White folks, and that is exactly why he categorize them separately, but let’s all remember:

William Marincic

I have Black blood I can’t be racist against Blacks. So now what?

Mr. William Marincic, “So now What?… Well I certainly don’t know, why don’t you tell us?

So this was his apparent answer posted late last night:

William Marincic
January 9th, 2022
There you going with your racist garbage again LOU, I believe you are a closet racist. And this is all cover for you. And yes I do have Black blood, so what. Stop your racist hate.

This is absolutely incredible, WM you are like a man holding a smoking gun, caught on video shooting someone, then accusing someone not in the area of committing the crime. Your desperate attempt of denying what your very words are saying is ludicrous. The frosting on the cake is deflecting it back on me.

I’m no shrink, but If I were to attempt to untangle why you said; “LOU, I believe you are a closet racist.” and “Stop your racist hate” it would be that you can’t grasp the concept that any White person actually believes all human races are equal. That’s what I think.

Additionally, regarding racism and this forum, all bloggers’ words pretty much speak for themselves. Try rereading thousands of previous posts and reevaluating, perhaps then you’ll see the light, but I highly doubt you’ll do that because, in all likelihood, you’re too busy reading the bible and convincing yourself what a great man you are.

LOUIS RESTIFO

I honestly don’t care about your beliefs, beyond them being a part of the negative impact they have on democracy and equality for all in America.

William Marincic

Nice try Lou, African Americans are in there because they as a group, for the most part, are refusing the vaccine for whatever reason, but it is their choice to do so and unfortunately for your narrative, it’s not a negative, just a statement.

Just an FYI why don’t you go back to the first time I told you I can’t be racist because I have Black blood. It was in response to a Facebook post I saw that said Blacks can’t be racist, and it went over your head as usual. Not that it matters, regardless of my bloodline I’m not a racist, I’ll be happy to share my Christmas photos with you, but there will be one stark difference between mine and yours. Mine you will see people of color at my home and yours will just be a bunch of White people.

Marincic: I find it beyond amusing that you would castigate those in opposition for not having any thoughts of their own. Your posts are filled with the thoughts gleaned from Tucker, Hannity, Laura, and the rest of the right wing bloviator corps. In addition, your pastor/minister/priest fills your head with absurdist 10th century theology. Free Thinker my a**. You are a regurgitator par excellence.

William Marincic

Hooligans, talk to me when I know who I’m talking to because as it is you are just some anonymous keyboard warrior like Chuckd

William Marincic

I don’t need to name him why would I ever give you the name of somebody like that so you could harass him and his staff because that’s all you people do the Democrats are the people of stopping anything they don’t like. Rather than not using it or being a part of it you people want something banned, there was another group just like you in the 1940s.

William Marincic

That’s funny because I don’t watch any of it, the only Fox I watch is Fox News in the morning for about a half an hour with my coffee when I get up and even then I am scouring news stories on the iPad at the same time. I do listen to CNN in my car because I need a daily laugh on my way to work.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Yes, “money makes the world go round” and to a certain extent we’re all guilty of placing too much priority on acquiring it, but….When it becomes the sole motivator of unscrupulous social media sites and BS programming , that shouldn’t have the word “news” in their names such as Fox News and Newsmax, because they only promote and spew out harmful disinformation while exploiting stupidity, ignorance and fear, solely for bottom line profits with complete disregard to the devastating effects, it is abhorrent behavior.

Perhaps I’m saying only what I should only be thinking, but at this point if my life… “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

William Marincic

Fox News is the most-watched news network on television. I heard something funny the other day; Upon hearing of Ghislain Maxwell’s conviction on sex charges CNN offered her a position on its network.

No, not for that. For the Maxwell/CNN claim.

(BTW, news to you maybe, but viewership does not indicate quality of content. Look up the meaning of “rubber-necker”)

William Marincic

I said I heard something funny which means it was a joke but the joke is on you because you believed it was true. You believe your beloved CNN would hire Ghislain Maxwell convicted child rapist to work on CNN. Now that is funny.

LOUIS RESTIFO

“We’re”?….You, and the poisonous frogs you have in your pockets?

Check all of today’s posts and the people who put them up and then give me the name of one additional person that would be laughing along with you.
You’re all alone Marincic.

Mr. Marincic:
Let’s be clear about what happened here, sparky:
The mere fact that I acted to verify your statement shows I did not trust or believe you. Understand that? It’s not complicated. You have invented your own entertainment, for you and your little friend. And made clear again, why no right-thinking person should take your comments seriously. I think you just believe you can toss out crap like that anytime to see what sticks, and then dance around what you *might* have meant when it fails muster.

There are a couple layers of messages in your imaginary ha-ha, and one begs the question:
Is there a religious connection between the “Classics Illustrated: Bible Series” you ascribe to, and your need for public self-flagellation? Otherwise I don’t understand why you would publicly expose yourself and your ignorance and stunted intellect here (and elsewhere?) on a daily basis (while on the clock?). For what? For years now you’ve been doing this.
Are you atoning for something? It sure could be read that way. It’s definitely not heroic.

Occam’s Razor

William, why are you bragging about a channel that cannot be considered real “NEWS”? The National Enquirer is also considered “news” which does not speak well of our gullible nation!
I get my information from a variety of sources, whereas you are the one parroting faux entertainment. As a matter of fact, i listen to many true conservatives–the ones who can deal with reality–no matter how painful or if it goes against their party.

RAYMOND HARRIS

Fox might be the #1 entertainment channel, but not in news. Keep in mind there is only one Fox and several real news programs that collectively is way more than Fox. But frankly, who cares.

William, Biden correctly pointed out that the spin on the “fraudulent” election doesn’t even make sense.
How can EVERY other vote on the SAME ballot (governors, House members, etc) be valid except for the presidency? It’s either all valid or not.

Al Pirigyi’s letter points out that those responsible for the Insurrection should not be allowed in office, but your “most watched” channel can’t even cope with the reality that thousands tried to overturn a free and fair election–led by the Insurrectionist in Chief. All that matters–just like your god, 45–is ratings. Pathetic and dangerous!

Oh, oh, oh, get in the action
Feel the attraction
Color my hair, do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free
Yeah, to feel the way I feel
Man, I feel like a woman!
Shania Twain
LOL!

LOUIS RESTIFO

“I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
‘Cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again.” Helen Reddy

No, jclark indicated she was brought in the 60’s and 70’ which would put her age at about 60 years. Again I say; not that it matters.

Hair and height is about right, and I’ve been told I look like I’m in my 40s! Luckily, I have pretty good genes.

Louis, my girlfriends and I would sing that Helen Reddy song loud and proud in the 70s! Plus my mother was a feminist who broke down many barriers at GE, starting in ’68. She took a lot of abuse by resentful men, but then became respected for doing a great job.

jclark: My Mom was the first born of a dairyman and could toss your Mom across the room, and then bury her with hay bales and sketchy farm hands.
; )
Long live the feminists!

LOUIS RESTIFO

jclark, I say kudos to both you and especially your mom, back in those days being a strong woman in the work force could have been brutal.

Discrimination and inequality goes well beyond race, women and the LGBQT community have had to, and still are dealing with it now in 2022.(perhaps now William is going to accuse me of being a closet queer)

“According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, in 2020, women’s annual earnings were 82.3% of men’s, and the gap is even wider for many women of color. Though women only made 57 cents per dollar earned by men in 1973 when this Department of Labor PSA was made, progress has stalled and we’re still far from closing the pay gap.”
Sadly “Progress has been stalled”. I will always fight for human equality, there are no choices in the womb.

Footnote: The top of the list of dependable hard-working employees I have are the two women. One started when she was 19, at 52 she’s still there and going strong. She is the pit bull of my business. The other, never makes excuses about anything, she just gets it done. I love them both.

William Marincic

Then you might want to look for another place to find a girlfriend Restifo.

William Marincic

Actually every Wednesday and every Sunday my two days off of work I take a 45 minute nap in the afternoon. It is said that if you nap a few times a week for less than an hour and Ed’s years to your life.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Why do you care about how long Ed lives? Is he a friend of yours or Jesus’?

William I read all opposing views not “imposing” views. Then I do research and see who is saying what. If it’s a guy on Youtube I give it no weight. If it’s a person whose field it is on the subject I give that weight. Then I do more research to see if the people in that field are overwhelmingly coming to the same conclusions. You keep citing CNN MSNBC which I rarely watch. Trump taught you to use those news agencies and scream fake news whenever they go against what he says. Basically you were taught to do that in defense of trump or anything the democrats do that isn’t to your or Trump’s liking. You subscribe to the “big lie” to this day. I personally think that any citizen that makes excuses for Trump is unamerican and they hate the diversity of the democratic party. As I told you before I don’t think you were ever a Liberal as you claimed. If you were once a liberal you wouldn’t be so extreme right in your politics. I am and Independent I have voted for republicans and democrats in the past. In your comments when you put down the “lefties” you describe yourself …the very thing you say you hate. Yesterday I asked you to cite what part of HR1 is unconstitutional that you say will ruin the USA. You never answered. You supplied a definition of a bigot on here…to me what you were saying was reverse discrimination….or better yet attacking white privilege …Have a happy day

Doug Hampton

I believe the same with regards to William ever being a Liberal. I believe that he said he changed in 2001. If that’s true, how is it possible that Ronald Reagan becomes his savior. If you were a liberal in the 80’s….Reagan is the last guy that you would worship and even if you do a 180 in 2001 ,the probability of worshiping RR like he does now is slim to none. I know that views can evolve both ways but this guy is on the deep end of the right wing movement. Just doesn’t add up.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Tough to believe most of what he says:

William Marincic
January 9th, 2022
I don’t care what you believe he is one of the best GPS out there, he will spend an hour explaining something so a patient understands. He’s been my MD since he graduated medical school, I’m his longest patient. You need to know someone to get an appointment but even then you might not get in. And no he does not require masks in his office.

I’d hate to be a patient in line to see doctor who spends an hour explaining something to the patients before me… “And no he does not require masks in his office.” The rest of the comments also sound like a crock to me.

ANTHONY J SANTO

BM, you’re so brave! Willing to bet $1000! I’m impressed! By the way your generalization about most Democrats being cowards is an example of pre-judging members of a large group, in other words, prejudice, a trait common to bigots.

If you want to see true cowardice look up one of your (I assume) heroes, Ted Nugent, and his draft evasion. Trump never served in the military and has belittled such service as I have proved in many quotes that, being a deep thinker, you dismiss as lies when all are easily verifiable. I’ll remind you of one example that you must realize is true: He belittled John McCain’s 5 year imprisonment by the Viet Cong during the Republican primaries in 2016.

He also evaded the draft during the Vietnam War by claiming he had a bone spur in his foot. When asked which foot it was in, he couldn’t recall.

He threatened to disown and disinherit his son Donald Jr. if he followed through on his wish to join the U.S. Army: You don’t believe it?: Look it up. I’m not doing your research for you because you just dismiss off-hand anything anyone posts that doesn’t fit in with your cherished beliefs.

LOUIS RESTIFO

BM, I’m not a coward, of which that statement had no relevance, and neither am a fool.

I stand by what I said: No way in hell would any doctor worth his weight in salt disavow the importance of mask protocol, unless he was a quack, which in turn means it would not be difficult to get an appointment. That means I win points 2 and 3. As for being his “longest patient” how tall are you? (Couldn’t resist that one) I win point 1.

How to use facts to arrive at a conclusion:

Fact l: A Christian proffers a large bet in the expectation of accruing ‘easy money’.

Fact 2: This person, evidently, loves money.

Fact 3: A quote from Timothy 6:10 (King James version of the New Testament): “For the love of money is the root of all evil”.

Possible logical conclusions:

a. The person is not really well-schooled in the tenets of the religion he is so vocal about believing in.

b. The person is a hypocrite.

William Marincic

Too weak to defend our police and military but just strong enough to kill a baby. That’s what I think about liberals.

ANTHONY J SANTO

God causes more deaths of fetuses, the correct terminology for the unborn, than any abortion provider could. These aborted pregnancies, when he causes them, are referred to as miscarriages, always a tragedy for women struck by his divine and random will, not a choice by women who want to end their pregnancies for personal reasons that could include anything from rape to incest to being not ready to be a mother yet.

I would love to hear your rebuttal to this argument, BM.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Matthew 21:12: “Jesus entered the temple court and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers.”

From the New International version of the New Testament.

How would he have felt about gamblers?

William Marincic

Gamblers were not the issue and if you knew your Bible he did that because they were defiling the temple.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Money, specifically love of it, was the issue. And you are indicted by your own words. Your attempt to escape the truth is transparent and revealing.

Doug Hampton

So let’s do a recap. You are 12.5% African American…..a liberal Democrat up until 2000, you had an epiphany to become a right wing Republican at that time , you sell cars, you think all Dems are mentally deficient and now cowardice. Oh and not to forget that you are “the” oldest patient of your present Doctor who doesn’t require masks. Did I leave out anything? Just want to be clear.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Correction Doug, “longest patient” BM must be at least at least 6 feet 9 inches tall.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Doug, you haven’t got “all your ducks in the barrel” you also forgot his high IQ.

William Marincic

Yes I don’t sell cars I’m a finance manager have been for 25 years. And I’m not his oldest patient, I’m his longest patient. 1999 to be exact.

ANTHONY J SANTO

Black Americans, due to our nation’s history of discrimination, are over represented among the poor. It has been more difficult for many of the poor to access vaccination. That situation has improved since “The HRSA has launched a program to directly allocate covid19 vaccine to HRSA supported health centers.”

African American men were used as a control group in experiments to assess the effectiveness of penicillin in the prevention and treatment of syphilis. The men, mostly impoverished sharecroppers, were promised treatment for ‘bad blood’, but instead, received a placebo so doctors could study the progress of the disease.
That experience is burned into the memory of many Black Americans and has resulted in widespread fear of free medical treatment.

The most resistant to covid vaccination are white protestant evangelical Christians. That does not mean that none in this group are vaccinated but, they do speak out most loudly in favor of ‘personal freedom’ over public health.

Politics, Republican style:
If you know you’re gonna to lose, cheat!

The Republican National Committee official alleged to have sent a forged election certificate declaring Donald Trump won the 2020 election dodged questions following revelations the document has been obtained by Congress.
“Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office provided the U.S. House committee that’s investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection a certificate, signed by 16 Republicans, falsely claiming Donald Trump won Michigan’s electoral votes,” The Detroit News reported Monday. “It remained unclear Monday whether the committee was specifically probing the GOP electors certificate. But the records indicate the panel is looking into the effort to overturn Michigan’s 2020 presidential election, a battleground state Democrat Joe Biden won by 154,000 votes or 3 percentage points.”
“According to a Dec. 14, 2020, memorandum, provided to the Jan. 6 committee, Kathy Berden, a Republican national committeewoman from Michigan, sent the GOP electors certificate to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. archivist, Benson’s office and Robert Jonker, the chief judge of U.S. District Court for Michigan’s Western District,” the newspaper reported.

The newspaper asked why the group submitted the fake certificate.
“I can’t comment on anything like that. That was a long time ago,” Berden said.
New Michigan Republican Party co-Chairwoman Meshawn Maddock, Shelby Township Clerk Stan Grot and the party’s grassroots vice chairwoman, Marian Sheridan also allegedly signed the document.

William why haven’t you answered my question on HR1? Is my harmless good natured back and forth with jclark bothering you ? Please put your MAGA think hat on and answer my question on HR1 …Why will it be unconstitutional and harmful to America ?

Anthony and Louis – Marincic gave a good response to Varoma’s statement re the constitutionality of HR1. Rather than present a cogent argument you both responded with toilet talk. What kind of nonsense is that?

William Marincic

Al Pirigyi Share the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. So when Merrick garland or the FBI’s Christopher Ray wants to release the information on Ray Epps then maybe will have more of a full story. But I don’t think that’ll be forthcoming because it seems that Ray apps was working for the FBI. Just my humble opinion.

Ray Epps? So you think that he was a plant by the FBI to cause trouble? ..Can you show me how you came to this conclusion? You say the FBI was involved with the insurrectionists? Please enlighten me. What source did you use to come to this conclusion?. I heard people like you counting on the Durham report to exonerate Trump. Is this another wait and see that turns out to be a nothing burger like Benghazi, Hillary’s emails Uranium 1 The Devein Nunes memo he came out waving on the White House Lawn, the claim the Obama bugged Trump Towers? or the claim the Obama is an Arab terrorist and wasn’t born in the USA. Or the claim Trump made before each election that an evil Mexican caravan was making its way to the Texas border.How about Mexico paid for the wall and oldie but goodie. It’s funny when you claim CNN and MSNBC are fake news ..But Fox News was the one that aired all these false claims that were all proven BS..Jesus would be ashamed of you

Doug Hampton

No your humble” hope and prayer” because your boy is going down. There is zero evidence that Ray Epps was FBI. It’s literally your Hail Mary. Your side has tried virtually everything with no traction.

William Marincic

It must be even tougher to be a liberal because you don’t have any real platform to run on, your party is in shambles, the leftists are taking over, Nancy Pelosi is so out of her league that she’s quitting, the vice president has everyone in her office quitting because she’s such a lousy boss, Joe Biden has destroyed everything he’s touched he’s nothing but a dumpster fire, and the only thing that you Democrats have left is what you show me every single day and that is personal attacks. Bravo you graduated to eighth grade

You end your comment on personal attacks with a personal attack. tsk. tsk. It must really be hard to be a BM with nothing to resort to but lies and distortions. The Democratic party is moving left which is exactly what this country needs, that and stifling Trump worshiping mindless supposedly Christian loudmouths with no grasp on reality.

William,
The RNC announced during 45s reign AND just recently that they have no platform!
Biden and dems platform is getting vaccines out (they’re there!), stabilizing and growing the economy (it’s happening!), building a fairer system from the bottom up and middle out (instead of giving to the wealthiest Americans & corporate welfare), free preschool, elder care, lowering prescription drugs, expanding Healthcare (that gop constantly try to take away), expand voting rights, equality, etc.

Man, you have b*lls to claim dems have no platform when the gop actually announce they don’t have one…except to obstruct progress and back an Insurrectionist LOSER!

Also, climate change since dems care deeply about our precious and fragile planet. We care about what we leave our children and grandchildren.
45 and the gop could give a crap since their priority is greed.
