Remove president
in service of truth

Removing a president is not about right or left it is about truth.

Denying truth because you don’t like it does not change that truth to your liking. Destroying votes in a free and fair election will not change certified election results.

A president is elected to protect the Constitution, not to destroy it by lying to his constituents. Following a leader who encourages sedition President Trump’s followers were thugs and mobsters sadly under the guise of the American flag, a symbol of truth and freedom.

Will president, associates
give support to cop killers?

Sadly, the one good thing from the tragic death of a Capitol policeman is that President Trump cannot pardon the mob, Rudy Giuliani, and even his son, Eric, without being known forever as a supporter of cop killing.

Should Trump resign or be removed, a pardon by Vice President Mike Pence would leave both him and Trump as friends of cop-killers.

Flouting COVID rules
is the real problem

Re. “Menlo Park candy shop owner catching heat for attending pro-Trump rally in Washington D.C.,” Jan. 8,:

Wearing a mask and taking precautions is not about being politically correct. It is about saving lives, maybe even your own.

The majority of their Republican colleagues in the House voted, in the same legislative chamber they’d just been driven from, to feed the delusion of the president and his followers that the November election was stolen from them. The lawmakers attempting to decertify the state electors were serving the same master as the mob. They, too, share responsibility for this latest national humiliation.

That’s how we touched bottom. Hold them accountable.

Capitol riot requires
action from Congress

It is not in the cards that Vice President Mike Pence will even now move against his master with the Cabinet, especially with two members already leaving the ship in Elaine Chao and Betsy DeVos, believing that four years of enabling President Trump can be eliminated by leaving.

All I hear is how difficult it will be to use the 25th Amendment to remove him. I think the House should begin impeachment proceedings and draw the line on …read more
