Closing Thought–25Jan21

I have made my feelings known that I think the traitorous slugs that participated in the insurrection of 06 January should pay a heavy price for their assault on the country.

I mean everyone!

There is a movement started by a Congressman from New Jersey to make the penalties should be doubled…..

A new bill introduced Friday by a Democratic lawmaker would double the prison time faced by rioters like those who stormed the Capitol, upping the maximum penalty for insurrection from 10 to 20 years.

The bill, named Stopping Domestic Terrorists Act and introduced by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), comes as the White House has directed agencies to undertake a sweeping interagency effort to root out domestic extremism.

“Two weeks ago, the world witnessed a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, incited to overturn our democracy and the will of the American people,” Gottheimer said on a call with reporters.

“With the new Congress in place and with the new administration in the White House, we must redouble our efforts to prioritize the serious threat domestic terrorism is in our nation,” he said.

“We are not a land of lawless thugs and if you attempt to overthrow it, through violence, you will pay the price,” he added.

If enacted, the doubled sentence would accompany increased efforts by the Biden administration to root out domestic extremism.

I say DO IT!

And that includes those slimy toads in Congress that have assisted the insurrection to come to a head.

  1. How soon can that law be pushed through? Chances are those arrested for the Capitol attack will avoid the increased sentences by the time it is on the statute books.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. While I understand your feelings on the this issue, I don’t think it’s a good idea.

    The reason is that the US has a history:
    As soon as it feels threatened on a domestic level, many politicians go for revanche.
    They might wrap it in for acceptable words.
    So hiding the basic emotion.

    Revange as base to punish has never worked,
    It only made it worse.

    If politicians would decide in favour of doubling the punishment, the US will do as it always has done.
    Change the law on the issue at hand, penalties doubled etc.

    You did the same on several issues in the past. You call it “War on…..”
    Do you realise that in the eyes of the perpetrators you make them victims, those that endorsed the will fuel the already volitile situation.

    The country will get more divided as it already is.

      1. With our Constitution it will be sedition against the US and its government….According to the statutory definition of sedition, it is a crime for two or more people within the jurisdiction of the United States: … To oppose by force the authority of the United States government; to prevent, hinder, or delay by force the execution of any law of the United States chuq
