    Donald Trump has promised his supporters that he will officially pardon every single person who gets convicted for FAKE CRIMES that, according to DT, never happened. "It was so fake, you wouldn't believe"

    His supporters want to make Jan 6th a national holiday: "Donald Trump Day". The day when the Donald Trump Revolution started.

    A conservative media publisher on Tuesday posted a video of Kerri Strug’s gritty performance 25 years ago, when the legendary gymnast battled through a serious ankle injury to help the U.S. women’s team on its way to winning Olympic gold.

    “The great ones find a way,” the publisher wrote on Twitter.

    There is a very strong and convincing argument to be made that Kerri Strug should never have been allowed to perform after seriously injuring her ankle.

    I shall contrast Kerri Strug comparison by paraphrasing the elite mountain climber Ed Viesturs, who is still alive today ( See book; No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks (October 2006)).

    "I turned around 50 yards from the top of the mountain because I knew that I likely would die attempting that last 50 yards, and even if I did make it to the top, I would be so depleted I would not be able to climb back down, and most climbers die on the way back down because they refuse to turn around at critical points. Better to accept defeat and live to climb another day, than attempting something that puts you in a situation of certain death."

    His take was the true elite mountain climbers are not only very talented and experienced, but extremely wise in understanding their own limits, and they don't cross those limits by attempting risks they know are beyond their capabilities for that day on that mountain.

    Simon Biles very likely made a very wise choice, and clearly not an easy one. She surely knew critics would call her a loser. But these critics would likely have found reasons to hate her even if she won gold. Such as "Biles might have won several gold medals, but she is no Kerri Strug. Kerri Strug is a champion, Simon Biles got lucky and won gold despite her lack of talent. If it was any other year, Simon Biles probably wouldn't have qualified for the US Team."

    Did Simon Biles crack under the pressure of Olympic competition or is there more to the story?

    The whole router BS is just a political tactic. It is a fishing expedition to find something to politically exploit.

    They won't find a 1 data packet sent from those machines because those machines don't have networking hardware or software installed. Can't find something that never existed.

    However, all routers routinely delete data that is considered to be trivial\useless. For political purposes, they would claim that the deleted data proves there was conspiracy and coverup.

    And even if the Router crap is completely debunked, there will always be another "Why won't they hand over...." to the point of absurdity.

    It's all about not letting it come to an end; there will always be a conspiracy that can't be solved that proves that Donald Trump won the 2020 election by a landslide in all 50 states.

    Obvious Prediction: The Arizona conspiracy-based audit will come back with the bottom line conclusion that Donald Trump won by a landslide. They won't provide any evidence nor even specific numbers of votes. Expect a lot of conclusions based on conspiracies that do nothing but ask questions such as "

    "Who owns the 3 unmarked vans that were seen parked nearby?"

    "Why can't we find thousand and thousand of missing votes that disappeared in the middle of election night? Where are those missing votes?"

    "Why won't Deep State release the real election results that prove that Donald Trump won the election. What are they afraid of?"

    Love watching the Olympics. With a DVR and Peacock+, we can watch nearly everything we want without having to rearrange our schedule.

    There is a spiritual law that everything is connected. All people are connected at a spiritual level, and all events are related to each other. To help others is to help oneself. To harm others, it to harm oneself. And that always means doing what is beneficial. What is beneficial is not always what people or a society wants\expects. To face down, and neutralize all resistance to the inevitable flow of never-ending constant change, is to provide things of benefit can take great effort and sacrifice, and nearly always is much easier said than done. The only things that do not change are the universal laws that govern how the universe operates.

    Generally good or bad is never done by just one person, but as have seen throughout history, one person can be a source of great influence on people, for good or bad. Martin Luther King convinced millions of Black Americans and White Americans that the Peaceful Warrior was the most direct way to personal liberation for all mankind, not just black Americans, and that movement saved the US from a massive racial civil war between Blacks vs Whites (see centuries of middle easy history as an example). The easy route would have been the black militant approach, where death and destruction would have been their approach; an approach that has no end and no success. Historically great leaders that convinced enough people to do the right thing, including many sacrificing themself for the greater good.

    On the other hand, we can take The Donald Trump movement, which feeds on a narrow scope of hate and selfishness. Trump is the premiere icon of the moment because everything he says and does is 110% about himself and what will make him richer and more powerful. What it costs to others or to our society is irrelevant to him, and is simply beyond his ability to comprehend. To his base he represents a zero-sum game about everything, therefore the only objective is: Take everything, leave nothing. Destroy everything the other side values because what they value has no worth other than what can be taken from them. If Donald Trump was 100% successful, 100% of the time, ultimately he would start turning on the outer parameters of his own base, and start destroying his most faithful followers to take away from them all that they have, because it's always a zero-sum game with everybody, not just perceived enemies. The elimination of his own base and allies would continue until Donald Trump consumes his own inner circle and ultimately his family, leaving him all alone in the world with everything belonging to him. That is how zero-sum process would work in theory, but is a flawed dead-end theory because he can't live forever, thus he and his fake empire will crumble into dust, and that very likely will happen over the course of the next decade.

    Former President Trump's businesses raked in $2.4 billion during his tenure in the White House, according to an analysis of documents conducted by Forbes.

    The former president fell nearly 300 spots on the Forbes billionaires list, released in April, after his fortune decreased by more than $1 billion during his time in the White House.

    The real bottom line is how much does he owe the banks? I bet he is completely underwater. All his properties, including the run-down mar-a-largo, have huge mortgages on them from multiple banks.

    BTW, if you stay over night in one of Mar-a-largo's luxury suits (only $100,000 per night), for a mere $25,000 extra you can get your picture taken with Donald Trump. For another $25,000 you can get your picture taken shaking hands with Donald Trump. If you have a teenage daughter, he'll have sex with her for free and even make a porn video for your family to watch later as they engage in Pony Play.

    The first felony sentence was given today. It was approx. 8 months in jail. Perhaps I am delusional but I think they're all going to get soft penalties in the name of bringing a divided country together. That too makes me crazy. If you didn't cause the damage... You shouldn't be given the task of correcting it. Be soft on the Republican base and see how they feel about you then. They will hate every atom of your being because they don't think, they hate with faithful allegiance. The fool carrying the vile Confederate flag around could have gotten 10 years in jail and I wouldn't have lost one moment of sleep.

    Responsibility for your actions and words along with accountability should be important and should be untouched by political spin.

    Jan 6 was a pathetic act by a spoiled brat who refused to accept that he wasn't the country's first choice. We shouldn't hide or downplay the importance of the crazy actions by loyal followers. It was despicable.

    "I only kicked the door once, then I turned around and left"
    or

    "I only hit the officer once, then I turned around and left"

    From a legal point of view, its hard to convict someone of a serious crime when their individual act is borderline trivial. But if you multiple that trivial act by several thousand, the outcome is extremely destructive and deathly. It's unlikely that no single person in the mob actually attempted to kill the police officers that died that day, each person simply struct the officers 1-2 times until the officers could not be saved. Each individual can truthfully claim: "I only kicked him, nobody dies from being kicked once"

    Donald Trump owns all that happened on 6\1. Without him, it never would have happened. He was the one that brought gasoline. He was the one that lit the match. And he was the one who watched it burn hoping the result would allow him to stay in office. But thankfully Donald Trump is a first-class F-CKUP, that it failed to accomplish his objective. It failed because of him, which means we got lucky. If he has been someone with the skills and intelligence of Puttin, the insurrection on 6/1/21 would not have failed.

    Donald Trump literally does not care that his incompetence caused the unnecessary deaths of 200,000 people (out of a total of over 600,000) nor does he care that his words on January 6 caused the government to spend half a billion defending the capital.

    Lock him up!

    Realistically the best justice we can hope for is that Donald Trump suffers a very long and painful decline in health between now and when he dies. I would like to see him suffer from Alzheimer's or some other serious form of dementia, and there is an above-average chance he will because his father had dementia in the last decade of his life. Let's hope there are future news reports of Donald Trump running nude around the streets of Florida yelling "Witch Hunt, Witch Hunt, the Fake News is after me" followed by the Trump family and US Secret Service chasing behind him.... That would be justice for me.

    It's unlikely Trump will be ever be legally convicted of state or federal crimes no matter what he has done. As Donald Trump has stated himself, he literally could kill someone in public for no reason at all, or order someone to be killed, and the legal system would find it hard to convict him, or even try. The political reality is that $10s of millions of Republican money would be spent to do whatever is necessary to keep him from being convicted, and it would take 5+ years of effort. But even if he were convicted of a crime, he would be immediately pardoned by a Republican president or a Republican Gov. At the very least, a Republican state governor (pick a Republican state) would simply state months in advance: "If Donald Trump is ever convicted in my state, he will get an immediate pardon the moment a conviction is announced, they won't even have time to put him in handcuffs before he is granted a full pardon. I don't care what he has done, or threatened to do in the future, he'll always be a free man in this state".... Such an advanced political statement would freeze prosecutors from pursuing crimes related to Donald Trump no matter what he had done.
