One thing about the Dems is they (whether wrong or right) ALWAYS prosecute and ALWAYS pursue. The GOP is spineless. They will call for hearings, issue subpoenas, and air their grievances and outrage. But when the cameras turn off and the hearing is over, they'll go on as though nothing really happened. The GOP does not prosecute or pursue. They're all bark and no bite. Not a single GOP member of Congress (not even the saintly Ted Cruz) is worth a cent when it comes to actually DOING something.

John Ratcliffe was a bulldog as a member of Congress and then you heard very little of him when he became DNI. All the work the previous DNI, Richard Grenell, was doing with declassifying documents seemed to stop.

Ted Cruz loves hearings and loves making soundbites for social media campaigns but he's done nothing.

Jim Jordan is a favorite to watch at hearings. He is relentless and ferocious when it comes to questioning witnesses during hearings. But, again, outside of hearings he's done nothing.

The DOJ under AG Barr has been a massive disappointment. Perhaps if you want to drain the swamp you shouldn't hire a member of the swamp. How long has Barr been in government and politics? He's a smart guy. What better way to make sure nothing happens than to become AG and refuse to prosecute.

Even Trump mostly bluffed and used Twitter to rant and rage without actually doing anything. It's as though he didn't want to clean up things because he needed an adversary, a boogeyman, to blame for the ills of government.

Trump could have and should have fired FBI Director Wray and CIA Director Haspel in 2019 for refusing to follow orders to declass documents. But Trump didn't do that. Instead, he took to Twitter to bash and complain about them.

Come to think of it, the past 4 years was a failure. We elected a celebrity, a man who loved showbiz, and we got just that: 4 years of entertainment.

It's truly infuriating to think about.

Re: Is it REALLY over?

I know I don’t like what I feel. I realize God is outside of time, and miracles and such aren’t confined to election cycles (and I do NOT believe Trump would fit into that miracle category anymore).

I almost wonder if I’d be sleeping better had Hillary simply won, than to have a Trump ramp-up the pressure-cooker to max PSI. He justifies every extreme thing they want to do.

And make no mistake: the left is PRAYING for violence at the inauguration. Too bad a few red-hats will give them the gift they so desire: imagine a move to confiscate guns on the heels of an inaugural crack off: “oh, you won’t vote to do this? Bye BYE filibuster!”

Yep. 4D chess. Trump tuned out to be the metal lamp stand they’re going to beat us with.

I hope I’m wrong, but political pessimism has served me well.

Sad but true. Amen.

And yet none of the GOP candidates from 2016 could have even won at all against Hillary. So the 4 years was a time to help us see our hope is not in this world.

Re: Is it REALLY over?

Pray with me at least once on this. All the barricades and walls being built for the inauguration? What if thats so we cant see whats going on? This is to strange (normally) to be true but what if:

The Communists pull the ultimate false flag. They themselves order Biden to be assassinated? They would immediately be able to have Harris as President, a true socialist.

They could blame DJT!

They could begin an instant crackdown against conservatives and guns with the sympathy of the majority of Americans.

I have begun praying for the safety of Joe Biden.

Re: Is it REALLY over?

I’ve left Facebook as a matter of participation. I have a public figure page that will come back on line after the dust settles a bit.

But I’ve learned something. It can proclaim Jesus all day in there, and it will inevitably devolve into someone wanting to take up an issue, and derail the proclamation.

Imagine witnessing to someone, but you’re doing it with a megaphone, automatically inviting interruptions from the periphery. The invitation is never declined.

But as I said, I’m also a pessimist. And Facebook only feeds my fears. I’ve recognized this is more me than the day itself.

Jesus died for Kamala Harris and Joe Biden. I have to pray for them. Are they beyond epiphany and change?

I’ll be honest—I think Harris has something in her that could be sensitive to it all. But I have no proof.

I hope your theory here turns out for naught. No good will come of it.

Up till now I have been praying for Trumps safety and salvation. I still hold out a smidgen of hope he may continue. If so it wont be because of his wisdom but Gods mercy.

When he leaves I will pray for Bidens safety and salvation as I did for Barak Obama.

I sure hope that thought about Wednesday is only a thought. Nonetheless I will be praying about it. I wouldnt put anything past the Communists.

Re: Is it REALLY over?

You aint seen nothing yet. Go to Youtube and watch videos on the Cultural Revolution. Or histories of the Russian Revolution. Or the rise of Hitler in Europe.
