Although the minutemen lost the Battle of Lexington, they won the Battle of Concord and drove the British troops back to Boston where the state militia blockaded the troops in Boston, in what later became known as the Siege of Boston. Eventually the British were forced to withdraw to Nova Scotia.
Yesterday, the ENEMIES OF THE REPUBLIC won a battle in the Senate. Exactly a month and a week after Donald Trump ORDERED insurrectionists to riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, he was acquitted in his second impeachment trial on Saturday afternoon. Citing technicalities and presenting dubious and potentially perjurious arguments, the Republican party managed to prevent Donald Trump from being the only President to ever be convicted in role of inciting the deadly event.
In order to secure a conviction of the former president, two thirds (67%) of the Senators would need to vote for a conviction. Forty-three Republican Senators VOTED FOR INSURECTION AND LAWLESS BEHAVIOR. They should be considered ENEMIES OF THE STATE, less fit to serve than Benedict Arnold!
Seven GOP senators — Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Richard Burr of North Carolina and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania — joined Democrats to vote Trump guilty of “incitement of insurrection.” These must be the Senators who believe in their oaths to “…protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America….” These are the Senators who believe in the “Rule of Law.” These are the Senators who are loyal to our country.
Perhaps we need to tar and feather the rest.
