This is a tweet from John Brennan the former CIA director under Obama.

He says and I quote: "Anyone now seeking national redemption by claiming to no longer support Trump must acknowledge how wrong it was to ignore & enable his corrupt, dishonest, & divisive agenda. Total denunciation of a despot's legacy is necessary to eradicate any remaining malignancy"

 

Let me translate that for people who never lived under a totalitarian regime or don't know history.

"You must think the way we tell you to think and do what we tell you to do. Otherwise we will kill you." That is not an exaggeration at all.

Whatever your political views are on one party or another or one politician or another, this should send shivers down your spine that someone in such a position is willing to say such a thing publicly.

Be very careful what you wish for, cause you might get it and regret it.

Honestly, I avoid politics here to avoid any bickering (of that sort) in my summaries topics, but the fact they are trying to impeach Trump when he has like what a few days left (if nothing happens) comes off as so petty.

 

Then, you add in the fact that half the people in the country and worse the States themselves openly believe the election was stolen, and that the federal government refuses to allow any investigation or redress. Forget a riot, we have those all the time we just call them 'peaceful protest.' You can have secessionist movement very quickly spark off. Since this can very quickly look like a coup or the ousting of the rightful government.

i don't understand what you mean? yeah it does look like an attempted ousting of the government and it's disgraceful ... but i highly doubt half the people in the country still drink trump's coolaid. it is not petty to impeach a president for crimes he's done if he had not incited a riot that got people killed maybe you'd have a point but no he has to be impeached and it's great to see some bipartisan action for once. as for the election being stolen that's kitten

what?

There are certain things going on in the world, this is not just about an election, this is about something so much bigger than that.

I'll ask you a question, why do you think there are almost or over at this point 25000 troops in DC right now? For what?

For what, a virtual inauguration?

Why are there fences around the Capitol with the bolts to secure them on the outside, not the inside? Meaning they are there to keep people in, not out.

What happened at the Capitol was terrible and I won't lose any sleep if Trump is convicted at his Senate trial. That said...I don't need to here this kind of thing from Brennan. He has no business saying such things about anyone given his own history. I mean he'd know about corruption and dishonest.

 

This guy spied on the legislative branch during his tenure and then lied about it to Congress. He can screw right off.

Because "Orange Man Bad" and he must be punished for denying them four years of the rule of Hillary Clinton. Oh, and being a Republican President, they been taught all their lives that's a bad thing.

 

In an earlier post your were worried because Government Officials were making comments that were warning signs of a totalitarian regime. To them those are good things because, "Orange Man Bad, Kill him, Kill all his family down to his baby grandchildren, Kill all his supporters, and Kill all Republicans because Orange Man is bad. Total rule by one party is good thing as long as they have a 'D' next to their name."

@Nate Why would Trump be convicted?

 

I'll answer this for him.  Nobody doesn't know outside the US that Donald Trump is actually a con man. This man has a lot of corruptions before he was sworn into office, filed bankruptcies left and right, sexual allegations galore and many more illegal activities. The fact that many people only sees him a "billionaire"/Celebrity/Reality TV Star (host of The Apprentice) doesn't know the real truth about him (only the East Coast, as in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut  -possibly California included- ALL knew who he was when someone mentioning his name)  and he will (and still is) play it off.  

 

And that's just a bit of it. I really don't want to say more because I. CANNOT. Stand. Him.  And I'm thanking God that he is out of office.
