Today MSM outrage was mostly focused on Prez Trump with Kansas City social media mostly repeating talking points gleaned from smarter people.

Sadly, most of the fun Capitol riots memes have dried up and now we're mostly left with talking heads throwing ritual tantrums amid the "mostly peaceful" transition of power. 

Locally, the vote fell upon party lines.

In Missouri, two lawmakers voted in favor of impeaching Trump. Here's how all eight members voted:

- Rep. Cori Bush (D) — Yes
- Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D) — Yes
- Rep. Sam Graves (R) — No
- Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R) — No
- Rep. Bill Long (R) — No
- Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R) — No
- Rep. Jason Smith (R) — No
- Rep. Ann Wagner (R) — No

In Kansas, only one representative voted yes:

- Rep. Sharice Davids (D) — Yes
- Rep. Ron Estes (R) — No
- Rep. Jake LaTurner (R) — No
- Rep. Tracey Mann (R) — No

The punchline here is that this vote was mostly ceremonial very much like the electoral college certification that rioters interrupted. 

Meanwhile the debate continues as the nation preps for more divisive discourse as a Democratic Party White House, Senate & Congress take control.

Off all the 3 it's probably Sharice Davids that's most likely to be faced with another challenge for the red wave that we're likely to see as a reaction to Biden.

No trial? Wtf?

Does this mean you can be impeached by whoever holds the house just because you can?

Sounds like a very bad precedent just happened. Maybe even the constitution may have been violated.

"The punchline here is that this vote was mostly ceremonial very much like the electoral college certification that rioters interrupted."

The attempted insurrection occurred because Trump misled his followers into believing that this was more than just ceremonial. That Pence just needed to show "courage", & that his supporters could do something to "stop the steal". Cruz & Hawley were complicit in this lie, which is why they must experience consequences, too. An argument can be made that they should be removed, per the Fifteenth Amendment.

Today's vote wasn't just ceremonial.

It was demanded by The Constitution.

What was civilized about the riot?

Seemed pretty barbarous to me.

Trump was wrong to not be more clear during the protest at capitol and it was wrong what happened. But instead of wasting today's work by impeaching him, I wish the congress would have done something to work on a vaccine that people need.

Once again Congress is playing politics instead of concentrating on what is important.

Who are we going to blame everything on when Trump is out of office?

9:35 Yes, Who? Maybe Hawley? Oh, already doing that, sorry.

There no way China Joe and Caneltoe got more votes then Trump. Just makes no mathematical sense. The election was stolen which means our country is now no better than a dictatorship.

Hey bLIEron, it wasn’t an insurrection, it was a peaceful protest remember, you should know that by now after the seven month long “mostly peaceful protests” that the dimwit party paid for and highly encouraged!

Freddo coumo said it best;

"Please, show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful," he said. "Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time."

What’s good for me is not good for thee. Quote from the entire despicable dimwit party. And blieron of course!

They voted to have a trial you blithering moron.

If they had hearings before voting you would have condemned them for not voting on it first.

Retro, you are delusional.

Alternate facts has become alternate reality.

Ironically we always have constant 24/7 "BOOMER HATE" person present. can't say you hate homos, blacks, millies, women ,commies, illegals, drugs users, criminals or any special interest group. Can opening say you hate elderly or older people. You are one disrespectful cocksucker and you DO NOT speak for our age group, party or anyone educated person I know of. While you worry about the diaper changes of others, has your Mommy changed your diaper this week ? As something has sand in your pussy.

Well, "Retro" is raging again, conspiracy babble incoherently spewing all over the place.

Retro, what are you going to do after the 20th, when Biden is inaugurated and Trump gets tossed onto the ash heap of History? Better prepare yourslf, because that's what is coming in just six days.

All those insane scenarios of the Military cooperating in the overthrow of the Constitution and establishing a Trump Dictatorship in this Country are too far fetched to have any whiff of credibility, and you know this or else you wouldn't be trying to claim something as absurd as an Italian newspaper as your source for this "secret" knowledge that only you possess.
You do realize that the rest of us have access to resources like Refdesk and can read those European newspapers too, don't you?

If you ever have a spell of clarity that allows you to evaluate what you actually post here, do us all a favor and seek help.
But in the meanwile, enjoy the six remaining days of your self-delusion.

Al Qaeda failed on 9/11 to attack / crash a airliner into the capital, Hitler failed to attack the Capital / conquering the USA. Japan failed to attack the Capital or set foot into the USA, Timothy McVey envisioned attacking the Capital but was caught, Iran and North Korea have both threatened but failed to attack the Capital, Russia has many ballistic missles in the 1960's pointed at the Capital and yet not 1 scratch they placed on it...

Trump assembles a group at a place and time of his choosing and attacks the Capital, stops the lawmakers from choosing a President and kills police. We are ONLY impeaching him? He is a traitor and should be tried for treason and murder!

The corrupt communist Democrats do nothing but waste time and money. The have tried to frame Trump for 5 years and failed. The sad part is many of these people are criminals including Biden. We need to purge or government of all of the criminals on both sides. Term limits would be a great start! They no longer do anything for the people of this country. They are only interested in making money for theirselves and their family! That is why they distract and divided everyone. The do it so they can continue with their crime spree while they create division so the American people are at odds with each other taking side! It must be stopped before it is too late!
