    since January 6 2021 not one single Republican lawmaker has been held accountable for their insurrection actions. they will win re-election if not arrested and they will cause more chaos and mass shootings. Put an end to the evil Trumpist Republicans and support the good Republicans and good democrats.

    MAGA Trumpists are ramping up their war machine to lie about their insurrection! Dont believe the lies!

    We need to support a federal law mandating prison time for each lie told by an elected official.

    More Very Disturbing Trends –

    1 Law enforcement has NO OBLIGATION TO HELP ANYONE…that is what their Union will fight for during investigations and trials.

    2 Law enforcement cant be prosecuted for Not doing their jobs

    3 Law enforcement can legally lie unless they are under oath at that moment

    4 The District Attorney will side with the cops almost always

    5 Law enforcement has qualified immunity, which makes it very difficult to prosecute them

    Texas Shooting Coverup …..over 18 armed evil trumpist c o p s had over 11,000 live rounds of ammo and they waited. and waited…..while people were being killed. it took the border patrol to take out the shooter…. how sad is that?

    nothing will happen to these evil trumpist people unless the locals keep up the pressure and the cops and politicians involved leave!
    Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.
