In case you haven’t heard, former President Trump has been acquitted…again. 

Did you hear about the call between Trump and Pelosi?

Trump calls her up and she says hello Who is it?

Trump says  it’s owen…

Pelosi says Owen? Owen who?

Trump says O and 2…

The Senate on Saturday voted to acquit former President Donald Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection despite significant Republican support for conviction, bringing an end to the fourth impeachment trial in U.S. history and the second for Trump.

 Seven Republicans voted to convict Trump for allegedly inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol
That is by far the most bipartisan support for conviction in impeachment history. The final vote was 57 to 43, 10 short of the 67 votes needed to secure a conviction. The 7 REpblican Sen. who voted with the democrats?

Republican Sens. 

Richard Burr of North Carolina, 

Susan Collins of Maine, 

Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, 

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, 

Mitt Romney of Utah, 

Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania all voted guilty.

The vote means the Senate cannot bar Trump from holding future federal offices.Which if anyone was truly being honest was really what this was all about 2024.

I know, I was thinking the same thing…How bad did that Chinese spy mess this dude up? And shouldn’t he be in deep in a coroner in congress somewhere being quite as a  mouse? Doesn’t he know what Trump was impeached for the first time?

Lindsay Graham was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace talking about the impeachment…


The question that all of us need to be asking is what is free speech and is free speech really free anymore?

Minneapolis on Friday backtracked on its original push to defund the city’s police department in the wake of George Floyd’s death after residents begged the city to hire more officers, citing longer response times and increased violent crime.

The City Council on Friday voted unanimously to approve $6.4 million in additional funding that police had requested.

The department says it only has 638 officers available to work — roughly 200 fewer than usual. An unprecedented number of officers quit or went on extended medical leave after Floyd’s death and the unrest that followed.

With new recruit classes, the city anticipates it will have 674 officers available at the end of the year, with another 28 in the hiring process.

The Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides, as well as property crimes and arson, More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than those slain in the previous year.

Pray for Minneapolis.

Reconstruction was a time of idealism and sweeping change, as the victorious Union created citizenship rights for the freed slaves and granted the vote to black men. Sixteen black Southerners, elected to the U.S. Congress, arrived in Washington to advocate reforms such as public education, equal rights, land distribution, and the suppression of the Ku Klux Klan.
