    Geezer who seems to LOVE Wikipedia “somehow” seems to have missed this from the Nelson Mandela article, "On 29 March 1961, six years after the Treason Trial began, the judges produced a verdict of not guilty, ruling that there was insufficient evidence to convict the accused of “high treason”, since they had advocated neither communism nor violent revolution; the outcome embarrassed the government."

    The only mentions of “convict” in Mahatma Ghandi’s Wikipedia article are about his assassins getting convicted.

    The idea of comparing brave men fighting for independence for their people to convicted felon Trump is outrageous. This may be a new low for Geezer.

    There was a plea deal for Hunter Biden, which is typical for that type of case. But then the Trump-appointed judge decided to squash that and go to trial – THAT is an example of NOT following the rule of law.

    McConnell and Trump stacked SCOTUS and the Repubs have been stacking the courts for YEARS.

    The charges against Trump were all spelled WITH EVIDENCE. A jury came back with the guilty verdicts. Shame you can’t follow that.

    Overturn Citizens United. “Justice” Roberts went far beyond the case that was brought and it overturned a century of precedence.

    Justice Department ruled that the tapes will NOT be turned over because that is the REAL usage of executive privilege. Turning over the tapes would impede the investigation because the House Repubs will nitpick silly things and edit the tapes (that is their history).

    Dems have repeatedly cooperated with investigations and subpoenas – now Gym Jordan, Hawley, Gaetz, etc. need to comply with the ones issued for their actions on 1/6/21.

    Don’t give Fern the attention it craves and maybe it will eventually go away.

    Funny how the MAGAs are all abuzz about their warped version of the video in Italy to try to distract from the Trump and Repub meeting.

    “the video lacks context, pointing out that several leaders, including Biden, were looking towards the man packing the parachute.” From Time.

    So Biden walks over to talk to the skydiver, but it gets twisted into “wanders away”.

    As usual, the MAGAs (or bots) worked overtime to find ANYTHING about President Biden that would distract from the horrific things coming from Trump and the Repubs.

    “the video lacks context, pointing out that several leaders, including Biden, were looking towards the man packing the parachute.” From Time.

    So Biden walks over to talk to the skydiver, but it gets twisted into “wanders away”.

    Repubs beat out the record set by the infamous “do nothing” Congress. They must be so proud.

    Elon Musk will continue to pay very little in taxes. The Repubs already have plans for more tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, and they will “cut spending” by reducing (eliminating?) Social Security and Medicare.

    Never could understand statements like EOW’s. “The left” does not all think the same way, to try and get all Dems to agree has been described as “herding cats”. Some people really like what Musk was doing with electric cars, but Teslas have turned out to be quite problematic. Then there was his “pedo” comment because the rescuers in Thailand didn’t want his “help” because he wanted to use a submarine in a cave. Plenty of reasons NOT to like Musk.

    Paul Ryan’s statement about Trump.

    “I think it really is just character at the end of the day,” Ryan told Fox News on Tuesday. “And the fact that if you’re willing to put yourself above the Constitution, an oath you swear when you take office in federal office — whether it’s president or a member of Congress, you swear an oath to the Constitution — and if you’re willing to suborn it to yourself, I think that makes you unfit for office.”

    BTW, due process was NOT followed in the Hunter Biden case. There was a plea deal, which is typical of that level of offense. But the Trump-appointed judge decided to eliminate the deal and go to trial. Between that judge and Cannon, it is disgusting how Trump and the Repubs have stacked the courts. And then they lie and whine.
