As Biden consolidates his power, the war on populism becomes a fully fledged assault on reality itself.
The “trial” itself is a joke of a process.
Firstly, we should note that it is absolutely and completely unprecedented to have a private citizen impeached. It could even be argued (and has been, prominently) that it is entirely unconstitutional to do so.
Secondly, there’s the very idea that what Trump did could ever be considered any grounds for impeachment, let alone a crime. He never incited violence at all, and one use of the word “fight” doesn’t change that.
He clearly and distinctly called for peaceful protests in a series of tweets which twitter removed in an attempt to expunge evidence of his innocence:
I’m asking everyone at the U.S. Captiol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the party of law and order – respect our men and women in blue! Thank you.” [link]
Please support our Capitol Police and Law enforcement, they are truly on the side of our country. Stay peaceful!” [link]
And thirdly, there’s the fact the entire “Capitol Hill riot” was a created and stage-managed event, obviously designed to disrupt the congressional session on whether or not there was voter fraud. Police opened barriers and waved rioters inside, where they posed for pictures. The presence of Army psychological operations officers has been confirmed. It was a complete set up. I’ve gone into that at length before.
At the end of the day, Donald Trump is being tried for something he didn’t do: “inciting” a riot that never really happened. But, of course, it’s not really about Donald Trump. It’s about what he represents, and further about sending a message.

What is it about Trump that scares the pants off these people?…
I suspect, Deb, that the most scary reality for the ruling elite is that Trump enjoys the support of nearly half of the voting public.
Kit has a few of Dump’s tweets out of order. Which makes a big difference when evaluating the action. And technically Dump was in office when the House Agreed to Impeach him. The Constitutionality of Impeachment of a President out of office interpretation is present enough so as the Senate voted to proceed.
Tube, I agree with Kit that it’s s show trial. I also believe that vote fraud occurred (as it did in most presidential elections since 2000 and the 2016 and 2020 presidential primaries). I think Trump genuinely wanted congressional hearings to occur on 6 Jan that would bring this out and that the Capitol protests were infiltrated by intelligence provocateurs to make sure this didn’t happen.
