    Insurrection: bad. Democracy: good. Supporting companies need to assist in positive and healthy societal dialog, not just including politicians, but also media outlets.

    Majority does not condone what happened Wednesday. No matter what side you favor. As with majority feels that corporate/ big money influence is out of control. On both sides. Not only through contributions but through media as well. Look who owns most of major media. Russia and China, fall far behind corporate/big money influence on political issues, and our ability to get truthful, unbiased facts. As with this broacast. Highly biased and omitting the fact. That these same companies, and media supported, The riots that happened throughout 2020. While homes and businesses burned in the background. Called it a mostly peaceful protest. The big shutdowns in mostly democratically controlled areas. Only funneled billions of dollars into these same companies. Amazon's CEO net worth up 30% in 2020. You do the math.

    Massive corporate donations to political legislators is nothing less than legal bribery. Citizens United was, and remains, the worst decision to ever come out of the Supreme Court. Corporations financed those people inside of congress that chose not to support the outcome of a fair and secure vote and electoral count. The president should be charged for inciting insurrection and removed from office immediately pending trial out come.

If not he can run in 2024 or just campaign hard against Democrats for four years holding rallies. Overshadowing Biden administration. Imagine that campaign. NOW THE Republican law makers have to grow a spine and follow along. Else it won't work as well. 80 million strong is no joke. Use the new mail our ballots just like the DEMOCRATS did.

    4/28/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy For The Lord’s Watchmen, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear Thus says The Lord to those who are faithful and hold fast to the line... To those whose hearts remain close to The Holy Covenant, whose minds are set upon The Goal; those whose thoughts grab hold of the vision with countenances unchanged, adamant stones who can not be moved from My purpose, rocks of offense set in the midst of this most rebellious generation; servants who remain in My love,[1] who long for justice to run down like water and for righteousness to flow like a mighty stream,[2] for the zeal of The Lord of Hosts dwells within them... My sons, in the midst of you I have placed a measuring line. Even amidst many stones of stumbling have I stretched it out, that you may follow it, that you may go straight forward. And though you yet stumble, I have indeed stretched it out before you, lest you should fall and be unable to rise up again. For the weight of this revelation is indeed very heavy and shall be met with much resistance. Persecution and slander shall come forth to bar your way, many voices condemning you for your actions, many accusations brought forth falsely on account of My words. Lo, it has come forth already, and shall continue and increase by measure. Yet do not be at all dismayed by this people, nor be taken aback by their words; do not listen to their slander. And when they draw close to abuse you in word or by deed, do not turn and run. For I shall be with you and dwell in you like a flame of fire. Behold, I shall make you as a fortified city, with high and thick walls, built with strong and tempered mortar, which no man can scale nor shall the enemy break through. For no weapon forged against Me shall by any means prosper. I AM THE LORD. Therefore, My sons, hear the Word of My mouth and so do; heed all My commands and do not hesitate when the decree is sent down. Go forth in My name and do not relent, nor be turned aside, for the mouth of The Living God has spoken! Trumpet My fierce rebuke and make My indignation known, without ceasing! Share My words and declare My wrath In every corner of your reach, by all manner Of speaking and devices!... Speak My words aloud, and blow the Trumpet Against this nation and against the churches of men!... Yea, sound to the four corners, Blow the Trumpet in all the earth!... Says The Lord God. My watchmen, pick up the Trumpet and turn toward the churches of men and declare the Word of My mouth, that the sound of My voice may humble them. Yet if they will by no means be humbled upon hearing the Word of The Lord, behold, on a day they do not know and at an hour they do not expect, I will come forth from My place and strip them naked and pour out all their riches upon the ground. Lo, I will sift them and bring forth a remnant, even from the midst of them, and they shall be left all alone in bewilderment and tears. Therefore, again I say to you, blow the Trumpet, My sons. For the time of The Lord’s Rebuke has come and the warning must be given. Go, hesitate not! Go forth and make enemies of all peoples and nations! Cause a great division,[3] even within the churches of men! For I have not come forth to give them peace, that they may sit at ease in all their fornications, or to sit idly by as iniquity overtakes them; no, I have not come forth to make peace, but war, a great division! For this is the sword I bring,[4] Even to the slaying of every heart, To the breaking up of every false foundation... Behold, I am come forth to divide asunder, To cut in pieces, until all this enmity is torn down... Says The Lord. www.thevolumesoftruth.com/Blow_the_Trumpet,_Sound_the_Alarm

    Dude on the right has figured it out. This isn't high-minded patriotism for the most part. This is companies figuring out that what they've been supporting could be the downfall of their business. Lot of these multinationals have seen what a headache it can be in countries where government whims are above the law, most notably China. None can afford to have their business at home interrupted or ruined because Dictator Donald is feeling antsy.
