More Than 1.1 Million Attended President Trump’s Rallies Since Labor Day – Not a Single Window Broken, Policeman Attacked or Attendee Killed – Clearly Trump Wasn’t Behind Violence at the Capitol

The Democrats and Liz Cheney confirmed a big lie again today.  Evil starts with lies.

President Trump had more than 80 rallies between Labor Day and the 2020 Election.  In all these events, not a single window was broken, not a single policeman attacked or an attendee murdered.  Policemen supported President Trump near unanimously in the election. 

In addition, in all the swing states there is ample evidence that the 2020 election was stolen for Joe Biden as we have proven at TGP daily since the election.  Still today three states have enough invalid ballots that prove the President won the election.

There Are Over One Million Illegitimate Votes In Three States Alone That Would Give the Election to President Trump If Addressed

But Democrats impeached the President and his supporters today for claiming the election was stolen which is was, and for claiming the President’s supporters were behind the violence at the Capitol, which they were not.

President Trump, according to our calculations held 86 rallies between Labor Day and the Election.  He entertained more than 1.1 million supporters.

In all these events, there never was a single instance of a window being broken, or a policeman being attacked or a supporter killed. Not one. 

This past summer Democrat-sanctioned BLM and Antifa caused billions in damages across the country and people were murdered as a result.  The Democrats raised money for participants’ bail.

We Asked Our Readers to Send Photos of the Democrat Party Sanctioned Destruction and Rioting in their Community — We Were Shocked at What They Sent In

Last week these same Antifa animals were at the Capitol.  It was easy to spot them.  It didn’t take experts to point this out.

“Antifa Clearly Led the Attack. That Was Utterly Obvious.” – Award Winning Journalist Michael Yon On the Capitol Protest

So what does the Democrat Congress and Liz Cheney do?  They impeach President Trump for inciting violence last week and claiming the election was stolen.

Cheney believes the President did not win the 2020 election.  She believes Trump supporters are violent and that it was wrong to say the election was stolen even though it was.  Just take a look at the impeachment articles she voted on.

Liz Cheney joined the evil Democrats today in an impeachment based on lies.  This was an example of lies upon lies.  These people have no idea how God and America loving Americans feel about their recent actions.

A Big Move To Ban Realtor "Hate Speech" At Work, Anywhere, 24/7

A Big Move To Ban Realtor “Hate Speech” At Work, Anywhere, 24/7

Submitted by John Murawski, adapted from RealClearInvestigations

In one of the most far-reaching social policy moves in the corporate world, the National Association of Realtors, called the nation’s largest trade organization, has revised its professional ethics code to ban “hate speech and harassing speech” by its 1.4 million members.

The sweeping prohibition applies to association members 24/7, covering all communication, private and professional, written and spoken, online and off. Punishment could top out at a maximum fine of $15,000 and expulsion from the organization.

NAR’s decision, allowing any member of the public to file a complaint, has alarmed other real estate agents, and also some legal and ethics experts, who say the hate speech ban’s vagueness is an invitation to censor controversial political opinions, especially on race and gender.

“The dam has broken and other organizations will look at this,” predicted Robert Föehl, a professor of business ethics and business law at Ohio University.

“If this is good for real estate agents, why not attorneys, why not doctors?” Föehl said. “They’re going to be pressured to do what NAR has done. And that pressure is going to be very real.”

NAR’s hate speech policy is noteworthy because it sweeps up 1.4 million people under an ethics standard that explicitly places limits on private speech, to be adjudicated through formal procedures. The organization’s new policy provides an avenue for the NAR to investigate, fine – and potentially expel – real estate agents who insult, threaten or harass people or social groups based on race, sex, gender or other legally protected characteristics.

Eugene Volokh, a UCLA law professor who specializes in the First Amendment, said that such policies should be assessed not for their good intentions but for their potential to misfire.

“What we’re talking about is a new blacklist,” Volokh said. “One of the things that’s troubling about the National Association of Realtors’ position is that it is trying to deploy the organized economic power of this group in order to suppress dissenting political views among members.”

Some real estate agents fear the new speech code will be used to censor agents who express disapproval of affirmative action, gay marriage, transgender pronouns, Black Lives Matter, undocumented immigrants or other politicized issues.

Among those caught up in the uncertainty are real estate agents who are Christian preachers or Sunday school teachers, or anyone who expresses traditional religious views on gender and sexuality that are out of vogue in some circles today.

“Are we worried about losing members? We may, but I’m certainly not losing sleep over that,” said Matt Difanis, the Champaign, Ill., broker who chairs NAR’s Professional Standards Committee, in a Dec. 16 training session.

NAR does not issue real estate licenses – that function is the domain of state licensing boards – so expulsion is not an automatic banishment from the profession. But in many parts of the country, NAR membership is required to gain access to the Multiple Listing Service, a searchable online database that sorts available real estate properties by parameters such as square footage, acreage, architectural style and much more.

Private employers and membership organizations are not bound by the First Amendment. And private employers are protected by the “at will” employment doctrine that allows them to fire workers for arbitrary reasons (as long as they are not discriminating based on race, sex, religion or other protected classes). About two dozen states have laws limiting the ability of a private employer from firing a worker for political speech or other personal conduct the boss might not personally like.

Nevertheless, there are signs that the expansion of such policies may be bumping up against other rights. Last month, a federal court struck down a professional conduct rule for Pennsylvania lawyers; the rule stated that it is professional misconduct for a lawyer to express or engage in bias, prejudice, harassment or discrimination. The rule was limited to “the practice of law,” but it expanded that concept, adding continuing education, seminars, conferences, and bar association activities where education credits are offered.

The rule was challenged by Zach Greenberg, a staff attorney for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), who said that it would expose him to endless ethics complaints because his work often involves citing examples of speech many people find offensive, including the N-word and others. The judge agreed.

“The big issue with these rules is that they create unbridled discretion for organizations to enforce the rules however they like,” Greenberg said by phone. “That’s a really dangerous game they’re playing because the question of what is offensive is really in the eye of the beholder.”

Difanis described the process of evaluating ethics complaints as “making judgment calls within procedural guardrails,” to be undertaken by hundreds of local panels, usually comprising three or five Realtors.

The uncertainty is causing angst in the profession and beyond.

Föehl noted that it’s virtually unheard of for a membership organization to adopt such a restrictive policy with respect to its members.

“It feels unprecedented,” Föehl said. “The stretch and reach into the personal lives of the association members is a very intrusive move.”

Pelosi signs article of impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signed an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Wednesday evening, a ceremonial step that precedes the article being sent to the Senate.

The engrossment ceremony to make the article official occurred shortly after it passed the House, with 10 Republican members of Congress joining the Democrats to impeach the president on a count of willful incitement of insurrection.

The articles of impeachment are seen after an engrossment ceremony with U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021. President Donald Trump was impeached by the U.S. House on a single charge of incitement of insurrection for his role in a deadly riot by his supporters that left five dead and the Capitol ransacked, putting an indelible stain on his legacy with only a week left in his term.

“Today, in a bipartisan way, the House demonstrated that no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States,” Pelosi said before signing the document. “That Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our country and that once again we honor that oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help us God.”

Pelosi spoke from the same lectern that a rioter had dragged through the halls of the Capitol during last week‘s insurrection. A staffer wheeled it back to the speaker‘s office on Wednesday for the signing event. The lectern had been moved to the Senate side of the building after photographs of the man parading with the lectern through the building went viral.

Trump’s impeachment by the House marked the first time that a president has been impeached twice in U.S. history.

The article of impeachment will now head to the Senate, although a trial is not expected to begin until after next Wednesday’s inauguration. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement earlier Wednesday that “there is simply no chance that a fair or serious trial could conclude before President-elect Biden is sworn in next week.”

“In light of this reality,” he said, “I believe it will best serve our nation if Congress and the executive branch spend the next seven days completely focused on facilitating a safe inauguration and an orderly transfer of power to the incoming Biden Administration.”
