For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

TL Davis distills a couple key points in 1 page

EXSUM: The free individual is by definition & simple existence the enemy of a collective, that collective reserving for itself the right to do violence & discarding the concept of private property. A quick read.

Beware the RINO in its natural habitat...the swamp...it seems to enjoy a political lifespan rivaling the half life of U-238...it is a known hermaphrodite and tends to multiply. It is also cannibalistic in nature and can even survive for decades on its own waste. Yes, beware the RINO.

Good read Badger. There is no mistaking the withering attacks on individual rights and property rights.

Also of note on the list: Joshua Kushner - brother of President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. Of course, we know Trump's daughter has demonstrated that she is anti 2A.

These folks are opening the Pandora’s box with pushing for Trump’s impeachment.

They really do not care about dividing the country as long as they get their way.

My view only, I think Pelosi is pandering to the loudest crowd so she can say she gave her blessing. I do not think she actually wants to go there, but has been buffalo'd. I also don't think, for all their posturing as our betters, that they've played the tape to the end.

As it spins (pun intended) out of her control, they are not going to like what happens if a measure gets a vote & goes to the Senate. Even the 6-year lease ticks in the Senate know that there are rules of discovery. And plenty to lay on the defense's table that the D's do NOT want to see the light of day. They are not going to like the result if Pelosi can't wrangle her critters.

My $.02 adjusted for Venezuelan currency.

It was fascinating to watch Pelosi yesterday shamelessly wrap herself in the Constitution when it suits her...

...while trampling it with swamp-mud laden stilettos...when it comes to any number of individual freedoms enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

When at one point she actually said “...no one is above the law” I laughed out loud.

What a load of shit.

My life, my family’s life, and my way of life are so worth defending. I am not part of a "collective" or someone who blindly follows the crowd to self-destruction. I am a individual, a free spirit, my mind and opinions are my own. I will not allow haters from the left try to destroy that precious right to exist in this Country based on our own free will and self-determination for our future. It's our right as unique individuals to express ourselves without consequences, and it's our right to defend and to protect what is dear and sacred to us if needed. What is so wrong with wanting to live a life that embraces our desire and spirit as humans to be free from constraints and limitations? Why do the Democrats and the Left continue to think that they are above us all? How can you pass judgement based on a flawed ideology that controls, and stomps out individual thinking and free will? It’s maddening; they are the ones who are the dividers, the haters, and have no conscience. It’s a very dangerous game that they are playing, one day someone’s going to call their bluff.

Oh and Pelosi needs a Stiletto heel firmly embedded into her brain....what a cold, calculating bitch......
