Enrique Tarrio of the Proud Boys was arrested this afternoon in DC for burning the BLM flag from a church.  He also had a ammunition in his car.

 

 He was charged with two felony counts of possessing high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.  If convicted of those charges, he would no longer be legally allowed to possess a firearm.

He's already a convicted felon which made it illegal for him to have the ammo.  I don't think he cares whether it's legal or not for him to possess a firearm, he'll do it anyway.

Are you sure he’s a convicted felon?  That possession charge applies to anybody in possession in DC. 

A Federal felon in possession charge is punishable by up to 10 years.

The original report was he was charged with a weapons violation as a convicted felon. 
 

I don’t know that the early reporting was accurate, but that is where the idea came from I believe.

Donald Trump fires the shot that begins the Republican civil war

 

Donald Trump is the most unconventional president we ever elected, so it comes as no surprise he’s doing something wildly unconventional as he leaves office.

He’s starting a civil war. In his own party.

 

This won’t topple our republic, because Trump doesn’t command enough Republican support in state and federal governments to create a real crisis. Democracy is holding fast against his legal and extra-legal attempts to reverse the election.

 

The latest test of America’s tensile strength comes from Georgia, where Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger exposed Trump’s tawdry threat against him because Raffensperger refused to help the president overturn Biden’s victory in that state.

 

Because the president has no shame, he has chosen to try to tear down the citadel on the way out. He has recruited Republican members of Congress and the U.S. Senate to formally object to the Electoral College count. Some 100-150 House members and at least 12 senators have announced they will support the president's gambit.

 

That still leaves about one-fourth of the GOP caucus in the House and three-fourths in the Senate who are expected to join Democrats and crush this insurrection. Trump’s gambit is “the political equivalent of barking at the moon,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

 

“(It is) difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president,” said U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.

 

Scott Jennings:In stimulus check and election fights, Mitch McConnell shows he's the last adult in D.C.

 

Former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan went him one better: “It is difficult to conceive of a more anti-democratic and anti-conservative act than a federal intervention to overturn the results of state-certified elections.”

 

“This is bad for the country and bad for the party,” said U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska.

 

Republicans are making a serious mistake challenging the electors, wrote U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. “Such objections set an exceptionally dangerous precedent, threatening to steal states’ explicit constitutional responsibility for choosing the president and bestowing it instead on Congress. This is directly at odds with the Constitution’s clear text and our core beliefs as Republicans.”

 

The GOP will pay, but so will Democrats


None of this resistance absolves the GOP.

 

The party will and should pay a price for nominating and electing Trump to the White House. His four years of erratic governance cost him reelection, and his destructive final days will likely cost Republicans many elections to come.

 

Meanwhile the disparate parts of the party will battle over its future when Trump is gone. What does conservatism mean in our modern world? What are its core principles?

 

Trump, to quote Robert Oppenheimer’s timeless recitation from the Bhagavad-Gita, is “The destroyer of worlds.” He has laid waste to the American political landscape. The Reagan Revolution is over. The conservative party will never be the same.


New Republican voices will begin to define the future. And they could feel the cold gale of voters for many years to come.

 

The Republican civil war is here. That may warm Democrats, but they should not grow too confident. All of American politics are as volatile as they've been since the Sixties. And with Trump gone to unite Democrats in their hatred, their own civil war is in the offing.

Better late than never. Its a shame Powell didn't say this 15-20 years ago. Instead he went to the U.N. on behalf of W n Cheney and lied. The U.N. has been effectively neutered since that day.  😒

GOP prepares for battle with new archvillain

 

Republicans are fuming, but the timing of Donald Trump’s Twitter ban couldn't have been better for the party.

 

Fractured in the aftermath of Trump’s defeat and a riot the president helped incite at the Capitol, the GOP found a unifying foil in the social media platform’s erasure of the president — elevating Big Tech‘s status in the culture wars from an annoying foe to archvillain.

 

For institutionalist Republicans weary of litigating Trump’s role in the insurrection, the ban — and the sudden silencing of Trump’s bullhorn — served as a diversion. And for the base of the party, it offered a rallying point for broader grievances about “cancel culture” and perceived attempts to censor conservative viewpoints. Less than 24 hours after the ban, Republicans were preparing to seize on the issue for the midterm elections and in 2024.

 

“A level of censorship that would make China proud,” James Dickey, the former chair of the Texas Republican Party, said Saturday, describing the ban as a “wake-up call for everyday Americans.”

 

Dickey predicted Republicans “100 percent” will campaign on the unrestrained power of social media and other technology firms in the midterms — and some GOP strategists were planning to capitalize on the controversy surrounding Twitter even sooner.

"Great!  Fire up the Stupid Machine, and get out there and convince people that the folks who just tried to overthrow the US Government are being victimized by being banned from Tailgate!"
