Only his ankle biters!
After the third installment of the January 6 House Committee mini-series Thursday 06-16-22, the chickenhawk Lawrence O’Donnell told MSNBC virtue signalers that Mike Pence was no hero. Why? Because the Vice President did due diligence in consulting legal experts like retired judge J. Michael Luttig, who provided the legal ballast for Mr. Pence’s initial instinct that he could not unilaterally overturn the 2020 presidential election.
“Why did it take so long … to do the right thing?” O’Donnell cavils. (This is the guy who peddled the Russian collusion hoax.) That’s like blaming Sgt. York for not capturing the Kaiser in addition to that machine gun nest.
John Nichols also parrots the party line of No Good German Republican. “The fact is that Pence was, is, and will always be a political hack,” Nichols writes, betraying confusion between fact and opinion as well as intimate familiarity with the subject of political hackery.
→ We do not recall Messieurs O’Donnell or Nichols ever so much as venture into a Republican Women’s Club luncheon, much less tell BLM and Antifa to quit burning down America.
Not going to let that happen
So intense was the pressure on the Vice President that his chief of staff alerted his Secret Service protection. On the morning of January 6, Pence endured a final barrage of abuse from the bully in the pulpit, who called him “Wimp” and “Pussy” for refusing to throw the election, according to testimony Thursday. In his one-hour and 11-minute harangue in the Ellipse, Trump put Pence on notice:
“All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify and we become president and you are the happiest people. … [If he doesn’t] we’re stuck with a President who lost the election by a lot and we have to live with that for four more years. We’re just not going to let that happen.”
Even after being told the mob had stormed the Capitol, the insurrectionist in chief tweeted: “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done.” Thereupon, the crowds surged, the Wall Street Journal reports and committee video showed.
… and within one minute made it to one floor below where Mr. Pence was waiting off the Senate floor, according to clips from video cameras inside the Capitol. At 2:26 p.m., the Secret Service rushed him down the stairs, other video showed. The rioters came within 40 feet of Mr. Pence, the committee said the footage revealed.
Just gallows humor?
When told that afternoon that the crowd was chanting “Hang Mike Pence,” with a gallows at the ready, Trump mused that maybe his supporters have “the right idea” since Pence “deserves it.”
Pence and his family remained for 4½ hours at a Capitol complex loading dock without any concern from the President, safe in the White House. The Secret Service wanted to drive his entourage away. Pence said no, according to the testimony of his chief legal counsel, becaue “he did not want to take any chance that the world would see the Vice President of the United States fleeing the United States Capitol.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Can we really temporize that the mob was just letting off steam? Should disregard their own insistence that they were acting upon Trump’s orders?
Profiles in courage: the Marcus point cinema patrons who endured the terrorist siege earler this week.
The harrowing stories are just now coming out … people looked death in the face, just like AOC on 1/6.

Anyone who believes that Biden as a brain dead, basement campaigning, despised running mate picking moron during a ” Pandemic ” riddled election got 81 Million Votes is DELUSIONAL! End Of Story!!!
Then how did Biden manage to outsmart Trump and steal the election? End of question!
If Pence had stayed in his chair and decked Buffalo Boy, it would have been over.

Or if Trump had shown Buffalo Boy the door instead of making Pence walk the plank. (If by Buffalo Boy you mean Nutcase Eastman.)
How many insurgents in the government overthrow wore a buffalo hat and carried the only weapon the mob brought. A spear.
“US Capitol rioter who carried weapon loaded with hollow-point bullets pleads guilty”
“Arrested Capitol rioters had guns and bombs.”
One guy who came on the 7th in a truck with weapons, one guy ‘near the capitol’ whose truck contained gun and molotov cocktails, one guy with a ‘bulge on the hip’ and one guy with a handgun. That’s your argument for an armed insurrection? 2 armed people – ie two people who were at the Capitol on the 6th – are going to overthrow the US govt? I’d call your charges trumped up, but that would be a bad joke.
And two guys to kidnap Mike Pence. If not “insurrection,” how about sedition?
TWO, as in one + one, not two hundred or two thousand? If we were the US of Maldives, your assertion might get past the rotfl filter.
Mob, storming the capital, insurrection, gallows at the ready. Not words you see from the right very often. So out of that entire collection of dirtbags Pence finally emerges as the hero. Rightfully so.
I think that the topic of the day should not be about Mike Pence. I think that the topic of the day should be about the allegation made by our current idiot in chief’s daughter, Ashley, who wrote in a diary found at a halfway house that her daddy, Joe, used to shower with her. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10896941/Florida-woman-Ashley-Bidens-diary-investigation-selling-it.html
And this from the “National File”. https://nationalfile.com/exclusive-source-biden-daughters-diary-details-not-appropriate-showers-with-joe-as-child/
Joe Biden, worst President ever.
If the allegations made in Ashley Biden’s diary are true, probably one of the creepiest President ever.
When history compares Mike Pence to Joe, Mike Pence has nothing to worry about.
Dave: While I often disagree with you on just about all issues, I want to thank you for calling out the attempted coup that took place 1/6. Keep up the good work on this, and keep their toes in the fire.

Oh, and I forgot to mention the following brought to you by the Gateway Pundit.
Old Joe is going to sign an executive order that as the headline reads: “Update: Biden Announces Sweeping Executive Order to Advance Radical “LGBTQI+” Agenda In Schools – New EO Bans “Conversion Therapy,” Which Now Includes ‘Suggesting’ That a Child Should Not Undergo Medical Transition”
You have to read this executive order found here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2022/06/15/fact-sheet-president-biden-to-sign-historic-executive-order-advancing-lgbtqi-equality-during-pride-month/

The story of Joe Biden is just getting better and better. Take a look at this from Tucker Carlson.
It seems that Joe Biden is now using the FBI to raid journalists homes to harass the journalists as they might have Ashley Biden’s diary.
Our supposed president is now issuing executive orders when he does not like the will of the people or the congress, the senate or the supreme court. He is also using the F.B.I. to be his police force and the justice department to stop others from asking questions about things that are going on.
Who does this guy think he is, Der Fuhrer?
The Swamp -v- America: DementiaJoKe Policies MAKING AMERICA POORER–Stephen Moore
~6 out of 10 people thought the Trump Economy was good or great, a mere 2 out of 10 feel that way about the DementiaJoKe economy. The broader financial markets have seen >$7 Trillion (that’s Trillion with a “T“!) evaporate in just the last three (3) months; no small portion of that from The Gotch Holdings LLC.
Under The Donald, median household incomes rose ~ $6 large, under DementiaJoKe they’re DOWN $2 to $4 grand; millions have been chased from gainful employment to the couch.
“This Was SO Predictable Due To The Overspending And The War On American Energy That Only A (despicable Lefty) With Ideological Blinders On Couldn’t See It Coming.”
Yet Lefty continues to gaslight the public by telling them how great things are; I mean, like, you know, it’s Juneteenth & Pride Month after all, am I right…?
By any objective measure, the DementiaJoKe administration has been a catastrophically disastrous, abysmal failure….THE_WORST_EVAH!
