It's a "sign of the times" Joe.

"for the love of many will grow cold"

"there will be pestilence, famines... and earthquakes in various places"

"people will be lovers of self"

people will "do what is right in their own eyes"

"nation will rise against nation"

I'll stop there...

For careful consideration. The following was written by a Muslim woman that left her country to escape her oppressors.

She draws a close parallel to whst she left... to what is going on in the United States now.

anybody got a handle on one of those routers that connect to italian sattelites?
i got an election i'd like to fix.
liz chaney's opening speech to the insurrection committee.
now we'll get a look at the terrorists actions.

Thank you very much, Chairman Thompson. Thank you to all of my colleagues on this committee, and thank you to each of the witnesses appearing before us today. It is because of you -- you held the line, you defended all of us, you defended the Capitol, and you defended the Constitution and our Republic, and every American owes you our undying gratitude. Every American, I hope, will be able to hear your testimony today and will watch the videos. The videos show the unbelievable violence and the inexcusable and intolerable cruelty that you all faced, and people need to know the truth.
I want to begin by reflecting briefly on the investigation that we are launching today. Every one of us here on the dais voted for and would have preferred that these matters be investigated by an independent non-partisan commission, composed of five prominent Americans selected by each party, and modeled on the 9/11 Commission. Although such a commission was opposed by my own leadership in the House, it overwhelmingly passed with the support of 35 Republican members, it was defeated by Republicans in the Senate. And that leaves us where we are today.
We cannot leave the violence of January 6th -- and its causes -- uninvestigated. The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th. We must know what happened here at the Capitol. We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House -- every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward. If those responsible are not held accountable, and if Congress does not act responsibly, this will remain a cancer on our Constitutional Republic, undermining the peaceful transfer of power at the heart of our democratic system. We will face the threat of more violence in the months to come, and another January 6th every four years.
I have been a conservative Republican since 1984 when I first voted for Ronald Reagan. I have disagreed sharply on policy and politics with almost every Democratic member of this committee. But, in the end, we are one nation under God. The Framers of our Constitution recognized the danger of the vicious factionalism of partisan politics -- and they knew that our daily arguments could become so fierce that we might lose track of our most important obligation -- to defend the rule of law and the freedom of all Americans. That is why our Framers compelled each of us to swear a solemn oath to preserve and protect the Constitution. When a threat to our constitutional order arises, as it has here, we are obligated to rise above politics. This investigation must be non-partisan.
While we begin today by taking the public testimony of these four heroic men, we must also realize that the task of this committee will require persistence. We must issue and enforce subpoenas promptly. We must get to objective truth. We must overcome the many efforts we are already seeing to cover up and obscure the facts.
On January 6th and in the days thereafter, almost all members of my party recognized the events of that day for what they actually were. One Republican, for example, said: "What is happening at the U.S. Capitol right now is unacceptable and un-American. Those participating in lawlessness and violence must be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law." No Member of Congress should now attempt to defend the indefensible, obstruct this investigation, or whitewash what happened that day. We must act with honor and duty, and in the interest of our nation.
America is great because we preserve our democratic institutions at all costs. Until January 6th, we were proof positive for the world that a nation conceived in liberty could long endure. But now, January 6th threatens our most sacred legacy. The question for every one of us who serves in Congress, for every elected official across this great nation, indeed, for every American is this: Will we adhere to the rule of law? Will we respect the rulings of our courts? Will we preserve the peaceful transition of power? Or will we be so blinded by partisanship that we throw away the miracle of America? Do we hate our political adversaries more than we love our country and revere our Constitution? I pray that that is not the case. I pray that we all remember, our children are watching, as we carry out this solemn and sacred duty entrusted to us. Our children will know who stood for truth, and they will inherit the nation we hand to them -- a Republic, if we can keep it.
Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I yield back.
isn't today supposed to be inauguration day?
Q and lindell been lying all along?o_O
funny how many capitol rioters are claiming trump derangement syndrome as a defence.
that and foxitis.:D
i like this quote.
"Not one patriot is standing up for me," Ryan told the Washington Post. "I'm a complete villain. I was down there based on what my president said. 'Stop the steal.' Now I see that it was all over nothing. He was just having us down there for an ego boost. I was there for him."

but what a circus, right?
let's see.
how'd that maricopa audit go? :rolleyes:
360 MORE vote difference than before?
and FOR biden?
no bamboo fibers,
and no actual fraud here.
the other audits caught a few republicans trying to vote more than once.
at least those other ones actually caught something.
wouldn't want anybody cheating.
"Q" was an American father and son team out of the Philippines who allowed pedo-porn to be hosted on one of their servers... Ron and Jim Watkins.

Oh Trumpers...
let's see.

Doesn't matter that Trump's own "Cyber Ninjas" found no evidence of fraud in AZ as Trump told his cult that the "ninjas" proved he won and Trumpers believe it. Trumpers don't run on facts, they run on their feelings.

"We won at the Arizona forensic audit yesterday at a level that you wouldn't believe. They had headlines that Biden wins in Arizona, when they know it's not true. He didn't win in Arizona. He lost in Arizona based on the forensic audit." -Trump 9/24/2021, Georgia rally
like trying to get out of sitting for summer zervos testimony.
starting up the hyperbole defence.
ain't a shovel big enough to move it. :D
There's one way to go through this sorta stuff quickly. Remind yourself that 'worm' is FOS. Whatever he says can be flipped 180 degrees and you'll be somewhere close to accuracy.
