  1. Time for a new party I will never vote for any Republican who went against Trump. Pence could have been remembered in history as the next Thomas Jefferson but instead will be remembered as a coward and traitor.

  2. Trump supporters don’t use the communist fist gesture or dress like Antifa rioters. Looking at the videos last night and the images many of of those that tried to take over the capitol buildings were not from the Trump rally.

  3. No, it is a reflection of just how People are sick of the lawless organized crime called the federal govt! But Be Aware, you are being conditioned by COMMUNISTS IN CONGRESS to view our freedom and constitutionally protected natural rights as selfish. I saw a movie on TV where the setting was Berlin, Germany just after WWII at the time the Soviets were laying roles of barbed wire on the ground to mark the border between East and West Berlin. The main characters were a young American woman and a young German man. He had gotten a law degree while Hitler was taking over Germany; but he never practiced law. She asked him why and he said, “The Law disappeared”. And that’s what’s going on in our Country: The Law as the standard which those in government must obey has disappeared and is being replaced by the age-old system where those with the power do what they want, and the cowards go along with it. Just as the cowards in Germany went along with Hitler; cowards in America are going along too. Rule by law is gone, we are ruled by power abusers. The federal govt acts outside the constitution and is our enemy.

  4. In the end it boils down to SCOTUS refused to force States to follow the Constitution. Where does anyone in the USA go for justice when the Courts turn their backs on the law refuse to hear your case present evidence?

  5. Here we go again fellow Republicans attacking new U.S. Rep Mary Miller her statement “was a denunciation of evil dictators’ efforts to re-educate young people and similar efforts by left-wing radicals in our country today.” Illinois GOP Chairman Tim Schneider is wrong and disgusting should resign not Mary Miller!
    Off of a misquote just like they did to Steve King why vote Republican when we just shoot ourselves in the feet?

  6. This man is not smart. A coup is by definition a military take over of a country. The statement itself is laughable on face. I haven’t even gotten to all of the other problems with this sorry excuse for a rep.
    Do 16th district voters really want this? Are they all rabid conservative haters?
    This is IL the GOP will probably back him to run for Governor because they all hate their voters.
