For Democrats, the 2020 election gave them control of the White House, the Senate and House of Representatives but it settled nothing. For them, the new power is a chance to address their perpetual grudges and take out as many of their opponents as possible.

Anand Giridharadas, a liberal writer for Time magazine, literally said Friday on MSNBC that the government should consider criminalizing right-leaning news outlets. In a segment about Democrats seeking "justice" for the Trump years, Giridharadas said, "Part of this justice is not just to focus on [former president Trump]. It’s also on the media ecosystem. Fox News and OANN and all these other things that is not just offering a different point of view, as we all know. It is a brain mashing machine for half of this country."

The Daily 202: Few House Republicans defended Trump’s conduct as they opposed his second impeachment

  The Daily 202: Few House Republicans defended Trump’s conduct as they opposed his second impeachment The vibe was different from December 2019 on both sides of the aisle. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said President Trump “bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters” and faulted him for not immediately denouncing the violence “when he saw what was unfolding.

Thank you, President Trump . Within 24 hours, the Democrats had no further use for of the National We ask all patriots who appreciate the evil we expose and want to help us savage the NWO with SCOOP: Trump has given permission for the troops to stay at Trump Hotel DC if any of them need

If Democrats gain support for subpoenas, Republican leaders threatened to demand their own witnesses and call Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his son Hunter to testify, because their connections to Ukraine had been at the heart of Trump 's scheme to tarnish his election rivals.

He went on to say, in earnest, "We need to shift the debate to say, is Fox News a thing that should exist in America? Is that not a violation of you know the basic ethics and norms of a civil society if not of the law?"

Prior to November 2020 -- or at least November 2016 -- this would have been a shocking thing to say on a major cable news channel, where everyone presumably understands and cherishes the First Amendment. But no. Show host Mika Brzezinski replied, "I don't disagree."

Charles Blow of the New York Times wrote earlier this week that the election turned out in his favor, but that calls by President Joe Biden for "unity" were unacceptable. "You can’t have a feeling of unity after there was enforcement of a practice of cruelty," wrote Blow with typical melodrama. "There must be acknowledgment and accountability. There must be contrition and repentance." (His main gripe, by the way, was the prosecution of illegal immigrants who showed up in the U.S. with their children in tow.)

How Georgia went blue

  How Georgia went blue Democrats flipped two long-shot Senate seats in Georgia. Can they do it again?Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock became the first Democrats Georgia voters elected to the Senate since 2000, two months after President-elect Joe Biden became the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since 1992. Neither race was super close. Both Democrats won with margins outside of Georgia’s threshold for a recount; Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler have both since conceded.

Donald Trump was up late on Twitter on Wednesday evening to dismiss the latest round of Democratic "The parents are subject to prosecution while children may not be. So, if we do our duty and The US president also stepped up his support for Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro, "the Trump of the

They should not exist,” the professor explained, adding that the Democrats and their supporters apparently believe that no “sane” person could support Trump and those that still do should literally If Americans truly want unity, they should “fight against the ethos of identity politics,” Saad went on.

In December, the hilariously inconsistent Jennifer Rubin wrote at the Washington Post that "A complete record of the past four years ... is a precondition to determine what criminal prosecutions, civil actions, professional discipline and employment decisions should follow." In other words, both public and private institutions should consider reprisals against Trump, the people who worked for him, and even just people who supported him.

Protect Democracy, a left-wing nonprofit, released a report that same month on what it described as "accountability options for Trump-era transgressions." The report suggested "government-facilitated commissions of inquiry, investigations and prosecutions by law enforcement." The report also offered that private companies" could "prevent the financial and reputational rehabilitation" of those who worked for the Trump administrator and Trump campaigns.

Joe Biden's Options for Dealing with Donald Trump Are Worse than Watergate

  Joe Biden's Options for Dealing with Donald Trump Are Worse than Watergate When it comes to Donald Trump, the incoming president has a critical decision to make about the best way to move the country forward—and neither Democrats nor Republicans are likely to be happy about his choice.The 78-year-old Democrat, more comfortable preaching the politics of unity and reconciliation than backing a fire-and-brimstone approach, has not publicly—or privately, advisers say—backed impeachment or pushed for conviction in the Senate, even as a groundswell for justice has emerged in the wake of the Capitol riot.

To them Donald Trump is inherently a good person as a member of the aristocracy. They simply think they are higher on the social ladder than they really are and want to punish those below them for the immorality.

Pro- Trump supporters have flooded DC to protest president's election loss. His remarks got off to an inauspicious start as Trump 's microphone appeared to be turned off as he began speaking. In the days leading up to Wednesday's planned march, police posted signs declaring areas where they

The way they talk is terrifying -- and then they have the nerve to lecture on "incitement."

Democrats won't let it go. But it's not clear they've thought out what might happen if their opponents decide they won't to let it go, either.
