2021 What a Mess ! ? !
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Another ____ _____ IMPEACHMENT?!?

Remember how the Democrats groaned and moaned about rushing to take one month to appoint a well-known Supreme Court judge? Yet, it took less than one week for their second impeachment, the first being a 3 1/2 year witch hunt.

Can you say POLITICAL GRANDSTANDING?!?

We're all about to be reminded how much of an issue flip-flopper Joe Biden is. He said just enough to get elected from his basement, but he can't remember people's names, much less his promises. The Biden crime family is about to run wild again, because nobody will stop them, same as Obama's eight years in office. The government breaks its own laws. Laws are for businessmen, especially those named Donald Trump.

The 2020 Election was a fraud. The 2016 Election was a scandalous cover-up, a Russian hoax perpetuated by the Clinton campaign's false narrative, which the lying mainstream media gladly repeats instead of doing their jobs honestly. The federal government is corrupt, and will become even more corrupt, because nobody will stop them, including the Supreme Court. The greatest republic is about to bow down and step aside to the Chinese communists, who inflicted us with COVID-19.

The big lie we're living in is truly astounding.
