This GOPer wants Democrats dead

Really, she should be kicked out of Congress. (Read story here.) Her constituents had the right to elect her, true enough, but that doesn’t mean Congress has to put up with her. It doesn’t. The Constitution empowers the House of Representives (and Senate, too) to expel its members. This [...]

– The End –

The final chapter has been written of Trump’s misbegotten legal crusade to overturn the 2020 election (below). Read story here. But it’s not over; still to be determined are the defamation lawsuits and disciplinary actions against Trump’s crackpot legal team. Return to The-Ave.US H[...]

Mike Pence’s future

   Bottom line: He doesn’t have one.    “Pence staked his political future on Trump,” CNN says (here), because “he saw a shortcut to the top of the Republican pile if Trump happened to win.” It was a reckless gamble that required Pence to defend Trump “at eve[...]
