Virginia Kruta at Da Caller, ‘We Don’t Have To Guess About Where This Goes’: Tulsi Gabbard Issues Warning About Domestic Terrorism BillAt PM, Tulsi Gabbard asks Biden to denounce the targeting of all Trump supporters.

Of course, today is the day House to send article of impeachment to Senate (WaPoo). Senator Cornyn: Trump’s Second Impeachment Trial “Strikes Me As A Vindictive Move” (KT, Hot Air). No shit, Sherlock. Atop Da Hill Rubio says the Trump impeachment trial is 'stupid' and from WaEx, Rand Paul: Trump Senate impeachment trial an 'illegitimate procedure' without John Roberts and asks Are They Going to Impeach Bernie Sanders for Inciting the Guy Who Shot Steve Scalise? (Breitbart) Good question. And from across the pond at the Guardian, Senate Republican threatens impeachments of past Democratic presidents. Which reminds me of my plot to impeach Vice Preznit Biden on China and Ukraine the minute the GOP wins the House back in 2022. But the Senate would never convict. Althouse cite a dead white guy, "The President of the United States is impeachable at any time during his continuance in office." "Wrote James Madison in The Federalist Papers, Number 39." Of, course, there's always Pierre Delecto, so the Democrats can claim bi-partisanship, Romney On Impeachment: “Unity” Requires Accountability "He said he will “do my best as a Senate juror to apply justice as well as I can understand it.”" The NYT whines (via Hot Air) that Republicans Who Voted To Impeach Face Swift Backlash as Sundance reminds us that Arizona Republicans Stand With Trump, Censure Cindy McCain, Jeff Flake and Doug Ducey.

Forget the patronizing language and the use of “seditionist” to refer to Trump supporters, and all the other lefty hysteria. She’s telling The Atlantic’s readers something they won’t hear many other places: You’re stuck with Trump supporters, and you can’t bully them into submission, however much you want to. You have to live with them.
And, you know, even Paul Krugman has noticed that all the sedition talk is bogus. . . .
Said Chuck Schumer, quoted in "Schumer agrees to two-week delay of Trump’s impeachment trial/The ex-president's second trial is now set to begin the week of Feb. 8" (Politico).
Is there truth in those sentences?
Is there truth in Chuck Schumer? Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media, Pelosi Strains to Pin More Crimes on Donald Trump for the Capitol Riot , “accessory” to “murder.” Beth Baumann at Town Hall, Dems Could Toss Impeachment Aside to Pursue Another Avenue to Keep Trump Out of Office
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment allows Congress to limit an elected official from being considered for office if they have taken part in insurrection or rebellion. Democrats have continually said President Trump encouraged his supporters to attack the Capitol on Jan. 6, something they consider an act of insurrection. At least that's what they claim in their article of impeachment.
Here's what that section says:No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.A handful of Democrats believe they stand on more solid footing if they pursue this avenue.

Where neither the Tea Parties nor Trump alone could affect the Deep State or the Sanhedrin in any substantive way, the trifecta of Trump, backed by Tea Parties, and driving toward a Convention of States could work. If we demand it and protect it from hijacking.
So that’s the call to action: support the CoS and let’s target our 2037 anniversary of 250 years of American Exceptionalism for a triumphal, re-ratified rebirth. I want power, not wealth redistributed; I want Commies laughed out of office for their nonsensical “multiracial whiteness” garbage; and I want a country where I can dote on some grandchildren with a secure future before them.
