Vice president Mike Pence will never be president of the United States.
Since president Trump selected him as his running mate in 2016, Pence has been considered a leading candidate, if not the single leading candidate, for the 2024 nomination. But no longer. That is gone.
When Pence, as president of the US Senate, did nothing to question, delay or demand investigation of the electoral vote count in the Senate on January 6, he became persona non grata among tens of millions of Trump supporters. Even if he could not legally stop or alter the vote count, he could have at least made a show of doing so. After all, the vote was full of widespread fraud that still needs to be probed.
But Pence did nothing, and this was disloyal to a president who turned Pence from a nobody into a national figure in 2016. Trump supporters are furious with Pence.
Trump supporters are going to be a major voting bloc in 2024. They are going to turn out heavily for the Republican primaries. When they vote for Anyone But Pence, then Pence will never get the nomination.
More Global Warming Nonsense
Emergency crews in central Spain on January 10 cleared roads and rescued 1,500 people stranded in their cars, allowing Madrid and other areas to shovel out of the country’s worst snowstorm in recent memory.
Yep, there’s your ‘global warming’ for ya! It’s so darned hot that it is cold and snowing! Where’s Al Gore!?
Obama, Bill Clinton Pardoned Real Terrorists
We are seeing the Fake News media going into hyperbolic overdrive concerning the protest at the US Capitol on January 6.
It has been described as “an insurrection” and “a coup”. But it was neither. Those who broke into the Capitol were generally a bunch of rowdy Trump supporters who were not intent on overthrowing the government or harming anyone and did not have the power to do so. They got swept up in the heat of the moment. And now we have a photo showing that a ‘black lives matter’ activist was among them, obviously having helped to instigate the break-in.
The protesters were not armed. They did almost zero damage. The protest was easily controlled. Yet the protesters are being called ‘terrorists’. What a joke.
So now they want to impeach Trump over this hoax. This is nothing new. They have been hating on Trump since the day he announced his candidacy. The reason that people on the left hate Trump is because Trump is a real man who is confident in himself. That is how he got so much done in his first term. He solved problems by being rational and thinking clearly.
Liberals and Democrats do not want to solve problems. They want the problems to persist so that they can talk about them, blame them on someone else (i.e., conservatives) and use them to gain and hold political power.
This impeachment nonsense is more hysteria from the left. They need to get one last lick in at our wonderful president. It is hard to imagine what they are going to do without him to be perpetually furious about.
If you want to see a president who went easy on real terrorists, PJ Media reported:
Obama … commuted the sentence of convicted terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, the leader of the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional Puertorriqueña (FALN), a Puerto Rican terrorist group. FALN was responsible for 130 attacks in the United States, and at least six deaths. An unrepentant Lopez-Rivera was serving a 70-year sentence when Obama set him free. The Congressional Black Caucus had repeatedly lobbied for Lopez’s release during the Obama years, and the commutation was met with praise from Democrats like Bill de Blasio, Congressman Luis Gutiérrez, Bernie Sanders, and others.
Here’ two stories about Bill Clinton. Fox News reported about a woman whose sentence was commuted by Clinton on his last day in office in January 2001:
Susan Rosenberg, who made the FBI’s Most Wanted list by the time she was 29, is among the most prominent far-left revolutionary activists in the U.S.
Born in 1955 and raised on New York City’s Upper West Side, Rosenberg fervently joined activist causes during high school, including the Black liberation movement and others rejecting “repressive” U.S. policies globally and domestically.
Starting in the late 1970s, Rosenberg became involved in the far-left revolutionary terrorist outfit, May 19 Communist Organization (“M19CO”), which the FBI described as “openly advocating for the overthrow of the U.S. government through armed struggle and the use of violence.”
According to officials at the time, the M19C0 gave support and resources to an adjunct of the Black Liberation Army (BLA), which the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC) characterized as an “underground Black nationalist militant organization that operated from 1970 to 1981.” As a splinter group of the Black Panther Party, it was known to have “carried out a series of bombings, murders, robberies and prison breaks.”
She also was linked to the controversial Weather Underground Organization (WUO), founded in 1969 on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan, with a 1974 stated goal “to create a revolutionary party to overthrow American imperialism,” according to the FBI, which labeled it a “domestic terrorist organization” when bombings began the following year.
By the time she was 29, Rosenberg was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, suspected of being an accomplice in the 1979 prison escape of the still FBI-wanted Joanne Chesimard, aka “Assata Shakur,” a BLA member who was serving a life sentence for the murder of police troopers in New Jersey. Rosenberg was also wanted in connection to a 1981 Brink’s robbery that claimed the lives of two police officers and one guard.
Rosenberg, after several years as a fugitive in disguise, finally resurfaced in the late fall of 1984. She was caught after renting out a storage unit in New Jersey under a stolen identity – that of Barbara Grodin. She was found storing 12 assorted guns, nearly 200 sticks of dynamite, more than 100 sticks of the highly explosive DuPont Trovex, and hundreds of false identification documents.
Throughout what would be just 16 years in federal lockup, Rosenberg became a noted author, poet and activist – even earning a master’s degree from Antioch University and voraciously writing. In the morning of Jan. 20, 2001, then-President Bill Clinton commuted Rosenberg’s sentence.
Here’s more about Bill Clinton pardoning other real and dangerous terrorists, from Wikipedia:
On August 11, 1999, Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations. The 16 were convicted of conspiracy and sedition and sentenced with terms ranging from 35 to 105 years in prison. … The commutation was opposed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons and was criticized by many, including former victims of FALN terrorist activities and the Fraternal Order of Police. Hillary Clinton, then campaigning for her first term in the Senate, initially supported the commutation, but withdrew her support three days later.
Congress condemned this action by President Clinton, with votes of 95–2 in the Senate and 311–41 in the House. The U.S. House Committee on Government Reform held an investigation on the matter, but the Justice Department prevented FBI officials from testifying. President Clinton cited executive privilege for his refusal to turn over some documents to Congress related to his decision to offer clemency to members of the FALN terrorist group.
So there you go. So don’t worry about Trump and this merry band of fake “terrorists” who threatened nothing and nobody. We need to be worried about Democrats and their love for real, destructive people. Like ‘antifa’ and ‘black lives matter’.
