Well, the Freeperati are still fighting the two POVs – The Darnold’s “Me loves me some Putin, smooch, slobber” contingent and the “Jeez! Putin turned out to be a child-murdering bastard – whocouldanode?” group.
At least there’s one thing they can all agree on :
Russian Orthodox Church leader: Ukraine invasion a justified war against gay pride

The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church said his country’s invasion of Ukraine was a divine mission in opposition to gay rights.
According to a Monday report in the Moscow Times, Patriarch Kirill backed Russia’s “military operation” in Ukraine and called it a conflict over “which side of God humanity will be on.”
He drew attention to Ukraine‘s gay-pride parades and pro-LGBT laws, and called them a “loyalty test” and an example of Ukraine’s attempting to refashion itself in the cultural image of NATO nations.
“Pride parades are designed to demonstrate that sin is one variation of human behavior. That’s why in order to join the club of those countries, you have to have a gay pride parade,” he said in his sermon for Forgiveness Sunday, the last Sunday before the start of Lent in the Orthodox calendar.
“We know that if people or countries reject these demands, they are not part of that world, they become strangers to it,” Kirill said.
Former President Donald Trump shot back at his former Vice President Mike Pence on Friday after Pence said that Trump was “wrong” in claiming he had the ability as vice president to overturn the 2020 election, calling the notion of one man electing the president “un-American.”
In a fiery statement Friday night, Trump criticized Pence and his “unwitting advisors,” calling the former vice president “an automatic conveyor belt” for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for refusing to intervene in Biden’s election.
*******************************************This infighting is
To: plain talk
Pence’s speech SET UP the notion that Trump wanted HIM to overthrow the election-— completely BS premise. Pence’s job (which the dems are now trying to wrap up as being ONLY ceremonial which.it.is.NOT) was to poll Each State’s Legislative Delegates who brought the Boxes of each States Elector’s votes. Those Electoral votes were in DISPUTE in 6 States, and these were already KNOWN to Pence.
Pelosi and the dems created the “RIOT”
Of course they did.
to chicken shite Pence out of a simple Chairmanship role-—and to get him not to entertain ANY OBJECTIONS raised by each of the disputing STATE’s delegation chair. By so doing he IGNORED the Constitution (a duty he SURELY knew, or was advised on) which provides for turning the Election over to the House of Representatives in the event of non- Acceptance of the DISPUTED Electoral results from any of the State’s.
These DISPUTES/OBJECTIONS had just begun, when… timed by Pelosi the CHAOS began.
And after the idiotic “acceptance” there is video of Pence and Nancy Pelosi “bumping elbows” over. Operation successful- Constitution ignored.
Professor Eastman and Mark Levin are quite clear on this FACT.
And the proof of the FACT is that NOW dems are trying to re-write/eliminate the Electoral Counting Act which provides for the turning over of “no winner” situation from that POLLING by the VP on Jan. 6th, turning the decision over to the House.
Had this happened… each State’s House Delegation votes internally, and each State gets ONE vote for President from that internal vote. Since, at that time there are more Republican delegates in enough of the States to vote FOR Trump, the 1 vote/State would have resulted, properly, in Trump’s election.
Pence is a freaking LIAR, and the dems have “something” on him to get him to dance to their Constitution ignoring tune. These are the FACTS.
Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan and Elise Stefanik are quite clear about this
-— Pence is trying to pull the wool over people who are…
EXPERTS in Constitutional law. It is NOT something that can be changed without a Constitutional Amendment. The Act was done to avoid the VERY deal that was “done” without House Procedure/Constitutional voting— and resulted in the 1876 election with the probable winner of that House vote, Tilden- not being elected President. The “DEAL” of 1876.
To: KevmoIt says he is to count the votes, so when the votes are fraudulent he DOES NOT COUNT THEM.
The Constitution clearly designates the powers each office in the federal government holds. What you’re describing is not in the Constitution as being one of the powers of the President of the Senate.
To: alloysteelI wish someone would clarify what Pres. Trump is talking about.
But he could call the results into question, and if upon review, the results WERE correct, there is no “overthrow”. If the results were faulty, then steps are to be taken to rectify that situation, all spelled out right there in the Constitution.
There’s nothing in the Constitution that allows for that.
12 the Amendment has no way for the VP to change election results or call out irregularities.
“…–the President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted…”
Constitutionally, that’s it for the VP.
the “Electoral Count Act of 1887” which has since been codified as: “3 USC Ch. 1: PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AND VACANCIES” is where the details of the VP responsibilities are defined.
The only place in that code the VP can do anything is section§15. Counting electoral votes in Congress https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?path=/prelim@title3/chapter1&edition=prelim…Two tellers shall be previously appointed on the part of the Senate and two on the part of the House of Representatives, to whom shall be handed, as they are opened by the President of the Senate, all the certificates and papers purporting to be certificates of the electoral votes, which certificates and papers shall be opened,…
Had a state sent in 2 sets of certificates, the VP is suppose to open both. That’s it. There is no other duty for the VP in the law\codes. Congress takes care of irregularities.
If you have info otherwise, can you point me to it ?
To: Golden Eaglesince you’ve now passionately made the case that what Trump tried to do was even worse than what the Democrats and Biden ever didDon’t be ridiculous. I’ve quite dispassionately used facts and the Constitution to point out that neither Mike Pence nor any other vice-president has the Constitutional authority to reject electoral votes. The only passion here is from the folks who’ve whipped themselves into a frenzy about Pence being some kind of villain, instead of what he is – a boring non-entity who followed the role the Constitution set for him.
Solving the vote fraud and ballot harvesting that put Biden in the White House has to happen at the state level. Pretending that Pence had the answer and didn’t do it because he’s some sort of Deep State operative is delusional.
