davidlyncr: Navarro: Trump ‘Itching to Defend Himself’ Against Impeachment
President Donald Trump is eager to defend himself against accusations laid out by Democrats in a fresh impeachment push, a top adviser said Monday.
“The president is just itching to defend himself on this issue and we have the receipts,” Peter Navarro, a staunch Trump ally who advises the president on trade issues, said on “War Room: Pandemic.”
“Bring it on, because we’ve got the receipts,” he added.
Democrats on Monday released a resolution charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection,” accusing Trump of inspiring the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump in a speech that day called for supporters to go to the Capitol, but stressed they should stay peaceful.
Democrats have been trying to pressure Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to remove Trump via the 25th Amendment. A source told The Epoch Times that Pence doesn’t support invoking it, and Housing Secretary Ben Carson said Democrats should drop the matter, noting that few days remain until Trump’s term ends.
A House Republican on Monday blocked a resolution calling on Pence to invoke the amendment.
If Pence and a majority of the Cabinet don’t invoke the amendment, Democrats plan on proceeding with another impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told colleagues in a recent letter.
A host of Republican lawmakers have urged Democrats to think hard about the push, saying pursuing impeachment will further divide an already divided country.
“A presidential impeachment should not occur in the heat of the moment, but rather after great deliberation,” a group of House Republicans said in a letter on Saturday to President-elect Joe Biden. “We respectfully urge you to encourage Speaker Pelosi to set aside this partisan effort immediately.”
Democrats successfully impeached Trump last year but the Senate voted to acquit him. No president in U.S. history has been impeached and convicted.
Navarro said that the push to impeach Trump a second time “just opened a huge door.”
“They’re overplaying their hand. They always overplay their hand. This is going to bite them you know where,” he said.
davidlyncr: Trump never said anything about invading the capital ... in his speech that was planned by some other group that reached the Capital before the Group that was with Trump ....
KeithJ: He only wants to believe his own one sided belief Beaver ,,,what ever trump spews out and of course it all has been proven wrong . ,,,,the fact is trump ruined the party's reputation for a long time now ,,,,brainwashed ,,even though i voted for Kasich who was the BETTER man and did NOT have a shady past like trump.
Everyone knows that David WON'T read it.
If you haven't read it Keith, you might want to. It is long, but worth the read.
However, I have no issue publishing a 30 minute read to your thread.

davidlyncr: Fighting the Good Fight: What I Learned at the Rally
Here’s what I witnessed in Washington on Jan. 6 at the Save America March.
Surrounding me were patriotic Americans who had traveled from all parts of our land to protest what they believed was a fraudulent election. My daughter’s friend had secured VIP seating for our party, but few people sat during the event. Instead, many of them danced, tapped their feet, or sang to the music from the loudspeakers. Others chatted and laughed with friends, stood on the chairs to snap pictures of the enormous crowd, and enthusiastically applauded the speakers.
To the amusement of those who could see him, a middle-aged man with yellow-tinted hair, silver earrings, and golden sandals danced up and down the aisle. The three women from Florida next to me bounced up and down in time to the music, and some of the teenage girls who were in our group spent time braiding their friends’ hair.
Not only were most of these people happy—the event seemed more like a big, wonderful party than a protest—but they were also kind and polite. Those slipping through the crowd were always saying “Pardon me.” When an older woman with a walker fell, others rushed to her aid and returned her to her chair. Noticing that I was breathing into my hands—it was cold, and the wind was brisk—one of the Florida ladies offered me a small disposable hand warmer. I declined, but appreciated this sweet gesture.
After President Donald Trump finished speaking, our group decided to skip the march to the Capitol and return home. The 11 young people were exhausted, and all of us were cold, and so we missed the mayhem the media then used to characterize the entire event.
Bad Times Ahead?
Now, we are facing what Joe Biden has predicted will be a dark winter. That winter may last for months or possibly even years, and some of us are undoubtedly disheartened by the prospect of such a bleak future.
Hold it right there, my friends.
Long ago, an anti-drug advertisement on television featured the catchphrase: “Just say no!” We should say “NO!” to depression, despondency, and fear every time those swamp creatures rear their ugly heads.
Instead, let’s take some lessons from those people I saw in the crowd on that January morning.
Commitment and Attitude
That day I spoke with a man from Hawaii, an ICU nurse from Wisconsin, some nuns in full habit from Minnesota, and a couple from Georgia. All of them had sacrificed their time and money to attend this rally, to protest what they believed a corrupt election, and to take a stand for liberty.
And every one of them displayed a cheerful and upbeat love for their country and their cause.
We must do the same.
In the months to come, we must emulate that spirit of goodwill, pushing back when we can against policies with which we disagree, but aiming always to keep a positive attitude. If we give way to despair, we lose. It’s as simple as that.
Strength in Numbers
Many of us this past year, including me, have often felt alone and isolated, sucked down by a maelstrom of catastrophes. The masks and social distancing of the pandemic have brought a feeling of separation, the riots of the past summer that wrecked several of our cities filled us with a sense of impotence and rage, and the election results have surely left some believing all is lost.
Let’s take a lesson from that calm and joyful D.C. crowd and break that feeling of loneliness by joining together with those who share our love for this nation. We can link up with family and friends through social media, yes, but even better, we can throw dinners and parties in our homes, we can gather people for musical sing-along evenings, and we can take time from our busy schedules to talk with others—conversations that are as healthy for us as vitamins.
The more ambitious might consider giving their time, talents, and money to groups who stand for American values and freedom. Women for America First, for example, organized the rally in Washington. We can go online and seek out similar groups. Even better, those who cherish America can work on the grassroots level to bring change to local governments, joining community groups that seek improvement and advocate for freedom.
Optimism and Sanity
A good friend and I talk every other day or so about personal matters and politics. With all the latest explosions—the mainstream media deceptions, the silencing of the president, the corruption in our political system, the looming presidency of Joe Biden and crew—John is as discouraged as I’ve ever seen him.
And as he said just this morning after we discussed the headlines, “I feel like I’m living in Bizarro World,” meaning he senses the country is going off the deep end.
The people in the crowd I saw on Jan. 6 took a more hopeful view of the future. They wanted Trump’s reelection, yet many of them, including Trump himself during his speech, stressed that this movement was bigger than one man and that no matter what happens, together we must carry on the battle for liberty.
To do so, we must first believe we can win this fight for America’s soul. We must also refuse to allow ourselves to be sucked into the craziness of online speculations, charges, and counter-charges, avoiding the paranoia and fear that abound in today’s public square.
Staying on the Right Path
The patriots surrounding me at the rally reminded me of people I see every day in the streets and shops here in Front Royal, Virginia: decent folks of all ages, races, and creeds who work hard and who appear to lead virtuous lives. Like my fellow Virginians, those I encountered in D.C. struck me as men and women who hold down jobs, who love their families, who believe in law and order, and who honor the Constitution.
If we are to make our way through the coming storm, we must stick to our principles and try in our personal lives to live well and righteously. Some of us, perhaps most of us, have fallen at times in the past, but given the challenges ahead, now more than ever we must practice moral rectitude, both to keep our own souls intact and to inspire others around us.
Keep the Faith
In times like the present, circumstances can tempt some believers to lose faith in God. The shutting down of church services for so many long months has doubtlessly damaged the spiritual practices of some of the devout, and some in the media and in our culture will likely continue to attack and denigrate religious faith.
But now is precisely the time—and I’m directing these words at myself as well as you readers—when we believers must look to God for succor and nourishment. Like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in the Soviet gulag, we can grow in our faith in times of adversity. We can deepen our prayer life, and we can join or form spiritual groups that will encourage us in our struggles with the secular world.
“In God we trust” is still the motto of the United States of America. Those of us who believe in God should make that motto our own as well.
These past few years, especially 2020, have opened the eyes of many citizens. To steal a word from the left, we are “woke,” albeit in an entirely different sense. The sleep-walkers among us, those who were going through their busy lives without paying attention to the machinations of some politicians, our big tech gang, and our politically correct and cancel culture radicals, have shaken off their somnambulism and are now conscious of the deceits and intentions of their enemies.
So, now is not the time to give way to despair or to sink into apathy. No—now is the time when we must join those patriots in D.C. and put ourselves body and soul into the battles awaiting us.
Let’s make the good, the true, and the beautiful our banners and trumpets, and never ever give up the fight.

(THREAD) Media has yet to do a deep dive on precisely what Trump *said* in his January 6 speech in DC—a speech now called an "incitement to insurrection," and the basis for an article of impeachment coming Monday. This thread unpacks the speech. (30 minute read - 200 tweets)
1/ First, many don't realize that while the name of the *rally* was "Stop the Steal," Trump spoke flanked by banners that read "Save America March"—Save America being the PAC Trump has used since the election to scam voters out of more than $300 million for "election defense."
2/ It appears, therefore, that the link between Trump, his opposition to Biden's January 6 certification in Congress, and the insurrectionist march on the Capitol is one that comes, incredibly, with a paper trail—as it appears Trump *paid for* the seditious "Save America March."
3/ Seconds into his speech, Trump says, "These people are not going to take it any longer. They're not going to take it any longer...They came from all over our country. I just really want to see what they do." It's an astonishing admission he thinks something is going to happen.
4/ Trump then seems to catch himself, repeating the phrase "I just really want to see" but now adding "how they [media] cover it [the Save America March]." It's hard to know, therefore—perhaps deliberately—whether "what they do" means "what media does" or "what the marchers do."
5/ He then falsely says "media and Big Tech" together "rigged" the November 2020 election *and* the Georgia run-off, suggesting—in the context of past Trump remarks—that a combination of pre-vote polling and post-vote vote-manipulation explains GOP losses in those two elections.
6/ "All of us here today do not want to see our election victory stolen by emboldened radical Left Democrats, which is what they're doing, and stolen by the fake news media, that's what they've done and what they're doing. We will never give up." The verb tenses here are *key*.
7/ Remember, Trump excitedly tweeted about this event on December 19—the day it was moved to January 6. Trump scheduled his speech for an hour before the election certification was due to start. His words were *timed* to coincide with the "Save America March" he was paying for.
8/ So when Trump speaks in the present tense of the election being "stolen" by Democrats and the media—it's "what they're doing"—he means it literally: he's telling the "Save America March" that he and they are *imminently* facing a "stolen election" due to events at the Capitol.
9/ He then switches to the future tense: "We will never give up. We will never concede." He's directing the Save America March he paid for, which he'll shortly launch at the Capitol explicitly, to future conduct that'll encapsulate a shared commitment not to "give up or concede."
10/ "You don't concede when there's theft involved." He's telling the crowd that they *can't* do anything but march on the Capitol (as he will shortly tell them to do), and that they *must* not do anything on January 6 that would "concede" to the vote taking place at the Capitol.
11/ Trump clearly sees the crowd as an army. He crows about the size of the crowd, claiming it is "hundreds of thousands" strong. That's important for his "mens rea" (mental state) as a criminal actor: he believes he's commanding the actions of a *massive* force near the Capitol.
12/ "Our country has had enough. We *will not* take it *any more*. And that's what this [the Save America March] is all about." Trump is *unambiguously* tying his speech to the March, and the March to a dramatic action—not a metaphor or merely symbolic one—that's about to happen.
13/ "And to use a favorite term that all of you really came up with, we will 'Stop the Steal.'" Trump connects the march to the rhetoric of Ali Alexander—who we now know coordinated the "Stop the Steal" march on the Capitol with Trump Congressional allies Gosar, Biggs and Brooks.
14/ In fact, "Stop the Steal" was not a grassroots slogan, but was created by Ali Alexander in conjunction with Trump's allies, one of whom (Mo Brooks) had just spoken before Trump, exhorting the crowd to start "kicking ass." But we also must consider the word "stop." It matters.

Sad state of affairs Beav. I guess David's posted articles just magically appear on the thread.
davidlyncr: HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE DC SWAMP THIS PANICKED BEFORE?
The DC Swamp was never this panicked and afraid after the 9/11 attacks. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the congress-critters this scared in my lifetime. They don’t fear “we the people.” They hold us in contempt, obviously. But they fear Donald Trump and even more than that, they seem to be afraid that Trump is going to be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat at some point before January 20. How else can we explain the sheer terror as they try to crack down on the American people?
First, the House has introduced new Articles of Impeachment. What’s the rush, Nancy?
One of the punishments of a successful impeachment, under the Constitution, is that if the person is impeached (and convicted in the Senate), that individual can never hold public office again. Democrats invented a false hope in 2009 that a person could be impeached after they leave office. This was fantasy created by the liberal media in hopes of playing “Gotcha” with George W. Bush, but it has no legal basis behind it whatsoever. You cannot impeach any officer of the state who doesn’t currently hold an office.
That’s part of the reason why Pelosi is in such a rush to impeach Trump. If he leaves office on the 20th, she won’t be able to stop him from immediately launching his 2024 campaign.
Next, Trump supporters who attended the peaceful Stop the Steal rally in DC last week are suddenly finding themselves on the No-Fly List. They went to the airport after the rally only to discover that their government now considers them terrorists and wouldn’t allow them to board their flights. How did the government identify and demonize these people so quickly?
No, really. The startup social media competitor to Twitter has been in the headlines a lot this weekend, garnering sympathy from people on the right because it was swiftly crushed into oblivion by Amazon, Google and Apple.
But the dummies running Parler required people to upload the front and back of their driver license, along with their phone number, in order to gain “Verified Citizen” status on the platform. And since the dummies running Parler don’t know the first thing about web security, they got hacked bigtime several weeks ago. Parler was one of the only social media companies allowing Trump supporters to coordinate the big rally in DC, so the FBI (which was likely behind the hack) was able to quickly cross reference driver licenses with rally attendees and the FAA and KAPOW! They’re on the No-Fly List and labeled as potential domestic terrorists, pending the official investigation.
That’s really crummy. It’s also why I use Gab and SocialGalactic instead of Parler, FYI.
Next, Democrats are rapidly moving to criminalize political and moral support for President Trump. One bill that was introduced by the Democrats this week will, if passed, classify all “Make America Great Again” rallies as domestic terrorist activities. Let that sink in for a minute. I haven’t read the bill yet, but I’m curious to see if it will be retroactive back to 2015, as an excuse to demonize all Trump supporters from the very beginning as domestic terrorists.
Another bill was introduced by newly elected Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO), She’s is farther to the left than Bernie Sanders is, an open communist, an active member of Black Lives Matter, and has the dubious distinction of being the only person ever elected to Congress who used to be a stinky street hobo. Anyway, she has introduced a bill to expel all Republican Members of Congress who challenged the 2020 election results.
There’s that unity that Joe Biden promised us was coming! Nothing brings everyone together like dispelling all of your political rivals.
Finally, the Supreme Court has announced that it will not fast-track any more 2020 election challenges. No cases asking for an audit or for overturning fake state results will be heard by the court before January 20th. Dirtbags.
These are not the actions of people that are confident that they just won an election. They are actions that signify panic. They’re trying to run out the clock. Their hope is to inaugurate Joe Biden on January 20. Then, using the Democrats’ professional sport of “Moving the Goalposts,” they will claim that it’s too late and too unprecedented to remove him from the White House, no matter how illegitimate his “presidency” might be (while ignoring the fact that it was the totality of the fraud itself which was unprecedented).
They’re panicked. Good grief, Kamala Harris still hasn’t resigned from the US Senate. If they can only hold President Trump and “we the people” off until the 20th…
One final note. I recently remarked that maybe it’s time for President Trump to get his family relocated to a safe place, so that the panicked Deep State won’t be able to jail or kill them. Shows how behind the curve I am sometimes.
January 6th was Eric Trump’s birthday, so the day of the peaceful Capitol protest was a nice excuse for the entire Trump family to gather together in one place. When all eyes and every television camera in DC were glued to the guy in the buffalo horns in the Senate President’s chair (ha!), I have it on good authority that the entire Trump family was whisked away to a safe and secure location. How safe? Doesn’t get any safer. It also explains that glitchy green screen that President Trump recorded his last two announcements in front of (he’s not at the White House).
But they didn’t fly away on Air Force One, which always has at least one C-SPAN camera pointed at it. They flew away on the Nightwing. And if you know what that plane is, then you know… the 2020 election is not over yet.
David, I hope you have someone to stay with you on January 20th. I am genuinely concerned for your safety.
davidlyncr: Voting Fraud Again? Democrat Counties in Georgia Stop Counting to Allow Fraudulent Votes to Be Brought In
A Georgia county that leans Democrat decided that they were going to call it quits for the night during the vote-counting process yesterday. The two Republican candidates were not given the chance to hold onto their slim leads. They were behind the Democrats for much of the evening and then just as they rally, they want to call it a day.
At 11 PM eastern time, both Republican candidates had the lead in their respective races. “UPDATE: just confirmed. Chatham County is done counting votes for the night. The board of elections annex building is empty. Workers say they’ll be back at 8 a.m. Still, thousands of votes to be counted here. @WJCLNews,” said Stephen Moody.
“In Democratic-leaning Chatham, the vote-counting appears on hiatus for the night … still thousands of outstanding ballots remaining to be tallied there,” Greg Bluestein shared. “It’s nearing midnight and the Georgia Senate Rs are still clinging to a narrow lead, but troves of votes are outstanding in populous Democratic strongholds like Chatham & DeKalb. One Republican activist tells me it’s the “perfect storm for Donald Trump,” he continued.
He also shared an interesting quote. “It’s like conspiracy theory gasoline” is a great one-liner during moments like this. The same people who don’t want us to share conspiracy theories are the same ones who are fueling them. It’s a hard mentality for anyone to square. Michelle Malkin is also pointing out the $500,000 donation that was provided by Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg.
The “Zucker bucks” definitely played a key role in this outcome. “So Chatham County GA election officials have stopped counting votes until 8 am tomorrow! You should know that Zuckerberg/@helloctcl gave Chatham County GA officials a half-million-dollar private Big Tech grant in September to run public elections,” said Malkin.
President Trump was not about to pass up his chance to poke fun at their corruption. “Looks like they are setting up a big “voter dump” against the Republican candidates. Waiting to see how many votes they need?” he teased. Gabriel Sterling also had to weigh in on the runoffs. “Chatham County didn’t just stop. They completed the counting of everything they have in. That includes Election Day, Advanced, & all of the absentees they had in. The last left will be the absentee by mail that came in today,” he said.
For some, this show is nothing that will surprise them. It’s essentially a repeat viewing for most of us. It’s the same rhetoric that we heard during the general election. Blatant corruption is taking place and people are being told that there is nothing to worry about. These miraculous mirages are enough to make people wonder if there is any reason to vote at all anymore.
The Democrats got a taste of stealing one election and they are now going back for seconds. Until someone is willing to step up to the plate by calling the election null and void, these are the things that are going to keep on happening. It’s not like they are being punished in any meaningful way, so we are not sure what anyone expects.
If you keep putting your hand in the cookie jar and no one ever slaps it away, what do you think is going to happen? The Democrats are a prime example of this. No one is ready to put a stop to them and now they are only going to become emboldened. All that’s left now is the inevitable story about a water main breaking.
They also love the old “suitcase full of ballots” trick, so be sure to watch out for that one. It’s time for the election process to become more simplified. The way that we are doing things needs to be changed, immediately. Maybe if the Democrats are forced to endure another four years of the Trump experience, they will be ready to change their tunes on this matter. One can only hope, right?

davidlyncr: Rep. Stefanik: Push to Impeach Trump 'Purely Political'
Democrats have been focused on impeaching President Donald Trump since his 2016 election win, and the current effort is "purely political" at a time when lawmakers should be focused on uniting the country, Rep. Elise Stefanik said Wednesday.
"Democrats are choosing to further divide and further erode and create this partisanship as we head towards the inaugural," the New York Republican said on Fox News's "Fox and Friends." "It's wrong, it's snap impeachment, it is not even going through committees."
Stefanik said she agrees that the violent attacks that took place at the Capitol on Jan. 6 were wrong, and she has condemned them, but so has Trump.
"We should ensure that we have a safe transition on Jan. 20," she said.
Stefanik also had strong words about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to name Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., as an impeachment manager, considering there are still questions concerning his connections with a suspected Chinese spy in the past.
"Eric Swalwell's a puppet for Nancy Pelosi," said Stefanik. "I still think that we deserve answers. We, as his colleagues in Congress, need to know why he was on the House Intelligence Committee."
She also accused Swalwell of concentrating more on opposing Trump than representing his constituents.
"I think it's an embarrassment," she said. "I think the American people can see through it."
Stefanik also spoke out about the decision of Harvard University to remove her from her senior advisory committee position, citing her public assertions about voter fraud in November's election.
"That's not the reason why I was removed from the committee," she said. "Harvard is bowing to the woke left mob ... they are purging supporters of President Trump."
She added that there is "no tolerance" for conservative viewpoints at college campuses nationwide.
"Harvard is already refusing to accept speakers who have worked in the Trump administration, and the people it hurts the most are the students," said Stefanik.
davidlyncr: Statement from the President:
"In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind.
That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers. Thank You."
