Recently, South Dakota’s Sen. John Thune was among the 35 Republicans who voted to block a proposal to create a bipartisan inquiry into what led a violent mob of Trump supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Sen. Mike Rounds did not vote.

“To be at peace with robbery is to be an accomplice to it” wrote Edmund Burke of the French Revolution. The Republicans who voted to block the bipartisan investigation have become accomplices of the mob invaders of our Capitol.

After the invading British troops had set fire to the U.S. Capitol in 1814, the Senate chamber was left “a most magnificent ruin.” After this vote, the Senate is left a disfigured ruin, occupied by co-conspirators.

Get used to disappointment, Bucko. You socialist Snowflakes won’t get to cheer in the next election because we’re fixing our broken electoral process to weed out all the Communist voters.

Prepare for the Party of Trump to take over the House and the Senate in the Midterms. And we’ll get the Presidency in 2024.

Your lawyers won’t save you because we already own the Supreme Court.

Where We Go One We Go All. True Patriotis rule!
