    Guys! Some really great news for Biden.

    Republicans are most likely going to aquit Trump.

    This means, since Republicans confirmed that,

    1. A sitting president can not be convicted.

    2. And convicting a former president is unconstitutional.

    Biden is now free to reign for the next 4 years like a King. Isn't that awesome?

    Trump wasn't even in office. The whole trial was a waste of time. Had Trump been president however, I think things would have been different.

    If Biden fucks up big, and he is president, then an impeachment trial would make sense. If Biden wasn't in office, what would be the point?

    The bank robber wasn't even in the bank. The whole trial was a waste of time. Had the bank robber been in the bank during the trial however, I think things would have been different.

    The impeachment was about his actions on January the 6. It is possible to impeach officials even after they resigned or left office - there is presedence for it and the constitution makes no mention that the Senate can not impeach someone just because they are not president anymore. The point of the impeachment in the senate is not to convict someone in juridical sense. It's about holding the president accountable. A succesfull impeachment for example means the former president has no access to benefits anymore and can not run again for a public office.

    You do understand that this decision makes the whole process of impeachment completely irrelevant, right? A sitting president could pretty much do what ever he/she wants now days before they leave the office and it doesn't matter because the Senate can not hold them accountable.

    Besides. Why would it have been different? The last impeachment the argument was "Convicting a sitting president isn't possible". Now the defence is "Someone who's not president can't be convinceted". And people see not the issue with that logic?

    What I really do not understand is how readily some completely negate any checks and ballances or accountability ... I mean sure talking about what ever if Trump is guilty or not is one thing. But saying you can not impeach someone because they left office? What if Trump would pull out a gun and shoot someone in the head while kicking a dog around 5 min. before he stops being the president. No trial? No Impeachment? I mean he did it as president. Now he's not anymore. You can not put someone up for trial for what he did as president. The Republicans made that crystical clear.

    Biden spoke of unity. COVID isn't down and congress could be spending time hashing out more relief legislation like the recovery act. As I said, were it a more normal situation and not a crisis then yea go ahead.

    If anything, deal with the America Rescue Act FIRST, then try to impeach but their timing is stupid.

    Here is the spiel.

    Dems will propose their plan.
    Republicans as usual will block it, becaues it's not a tax cut for the wealthy.
    Demos will breach it trough.
    Everyone gets his money.
    Republicans/conservatives will cry SOCIALIST DICTATORSHIP! FISKAL RESPONSIBILITY.

    And everyone happily continues complaining about how shit the Senate is while doing nothing for the people all the while gleefully continuing to vote the same Senators in to office.

    Congress has been 50/50 so far on their record of getting stuff done. They make COVID relief a priority until this Trump distraction.

    The ideal situation would be no tax cuts for corps and no special treatments for the illegal and the lazy.

    America is dying, and that's not hyperbole...America is fucked, for 20 years people were waiting for its reckoning - with a population that's aging and fattening. Covid has just speed up the process, people aren't having children, there's an epidemic of drug abuse and mental illness, the country's abandoning the principles that help make it as powerful as it was, the levels of debt are eye watering. It's cultural strength is waning, Star Wars turned to shit, Hollywood is officially garbage, woke faggotry crushed all creative thought. I blame tattoos for this...

    You should blame the government. They are the ones that attempted to alter our thoughts with brainwashing of various sorts. This is the outcome.

    'White Fragility' is probably the largest case of projection ever.

    Nobody cared about White Fragility until companies started making people go to the seminars of the stupid bitch who wrote a book about how scared black people made her to show how racist you are.

    so what about Black Fragility?

    I just had a talk with my boyfriend who is a Lefty Liberal and he is so tired of this woke shit everywhere. He talked to me about how corporations like Coca Cola are now having company policies for their employees to be "less white". You know? The same Coca Cola who a few months ago hired mercenary death squads to kill union leaders at their factories in Columbia for daring to fight for a livable wage and safer working conditions. I love how fucking billion dollar corporations who use cheap slave labor virtue signal and dumb ass Leftists on Twitter and in the real world lick their fucking boots. "Thank you heartless billion dollar corporation who uses cheap slave labor for endorsing and conforming to my political views!"
    Fucking shameful...

    Jack Dorsey looks like Osama Bin Laden went vegan. Vegan Bin Laden.

    Something fun for all the "Orange Man Bad" people here who think Biden is wonderful as he is going to defeat the evil populists:

    SO MUCH BETTER!!! Anybody that says Trump was worse please do a favor and get off the internet and keep your uneducated opinions to yourself. Especially any retarded dumbasses that think the Democrats and the Left are better when it comes to healthcare.

    There are those groups who try to intergrate and then the groups who just HAVE to play the race game to elevate THEIR group over others. While I get it is ruthless it is never the less un productive.

    More and more groups are demanding their own holidays, force schools to do curriculums about THEIR race. To have THEIR special month. To scream about how awesome THEIR race is.

    Welcome to the race and gender hustling competition

    The usual suspects have ignited a racial competition and kicked ID pol into overdrive.

    Biden is already talking about letting in hundred of thousands of illegals. Day 1 of his presidency saw black and brown politicians demanding that THEIR race be given positions in his cabinet and positions of leadership. The dems will legalise as many illegals as possible as they will vote dem once they obtain citizenship. We have men demanding entrance into female competitions and bathrooms. Biden speaks of unity but leftists and dems have always sought to divide.

    If we zoom in closer to the rainbow, you will see specific colors fighting to get to the top while others are trampled over.

    The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
