We know what the verdict will be, and that’s frustrating. It’s infuriating, but specifically, it’s frustrating. It’s that same feeling from the doldrums of the Trump presidency, when the solution to impeachment or a probe into illegal dealings with a foreign adversary is to ignore them. I had never even considered that “ignoring a subpoena” was an option, but I’ll have to keep it in mind for next time. Throughout the last four years, I’d often think about how they keep winning — not just getting away with crimes, but cheating the systems, rolling back civil liberties, getting away with crimes (we’d had more “bombshells” dropped on us than Southeast Asia) and not losing voters.

For some of us, that war has hit home. So we ask, is QAnon the new hotness or does it have deeper roots? Who saves us from the Democratic pedophile endocrine takers? 9/11 is real. Worst doomsday cult ever. But like the Cyclones, They Have A Plan. … More Republicans: Where Are They Now?
On January 6th, a crazed mob stormed the Capitol building in an effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election through murderous means. One week later, Donald Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice. But of course the story doesn’t end there. RIP MF DOOM.
