When Joe Biden puts his hand on the Bible and takes the oath of office Michael Cloud and all others who are confused between lies and truth will know for certain who won the election.
Glen or Janice Ullman
Quincy, We’re all afraid for our nation, for one reason or another. I thought this pandemic might bring us all a little closer together, and it still might. Give Biden a chance, he can’t possibly divide us any more than Trump did...Glen
Mike thanks for the back up with Quincy, he’s a hard nut to crack. I think Biden will bring the Republicans back into real time and away from the what abouts , hopefully...Glen
RIP, JACKIE. A VERY SWEET LADY! I KNOW U WILL B MISSED.
Chef Charlie was a great guy! We will miss him greatly! Special love to his family! Love Jim & Cheryl Shamburger
Tim's correct, Allen. The offender was Pennsylvania resulting in approximately 10,000 votes that should not have been included in the count. The improper votes were subsequently removed, but their inclusion would have made no difference in the outcome. Other similar improprieties also were of no importance to the outcome in their respective states.

May God offer you comfort at this time.

In my opinion, you are asking for a great leap of faith. Sorry.

So far not a single legitimate court of law has agreed with your assertion. So I call bogus.
good question, answer would be interesting
It is a fact the election law was changed in some states by means other than that states legislature. That would be unconstitutional, is that so hard to understand?
So, Mr Clegg, do you agree with Mr Cloud that we don't know whether Biden is the legitimate POTUS?
according to declaimer on mask boxes they do not protect against covid-19. do you wear your mask correctly and change every 2-3 hour. if this is a contagious as stated and you are truly protecting others do you dispose your used mask in a biohazard container? what happened to the flu case numbers?
John, just out of curiosity I want to pose a situation/question to you. Lets say that you had a daughter (XX, female, young lady) who was good in sports and was up for a full ride scholarship to a 4 year college that she really wanted to attend. You then find out that she had been beaten out by a person (XY, male, young man) who was feeling his feminine side, participated as a female and took the scholarship because "it" was better at the sport than your daughter. What would be your response/thoughts and how would you explain this to your daughter?
You are right, there have been a lot of societies that have had thoughts simular to this over the ages and there are a lot of wrecked, sunken ships on the ocean floor of human history to prove it.
AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!
Gerrymandering is the problem not term limits. About 90% of the time we know the outcome of the election prior to the vote. We also need to make it easier to vote instead of inserting more deterrents. Playing musical chairs is like a bandaid on large infectious wound.
Courts,factchecking sites and Secretary of states dismissed those claims. The media reported the facts
Jane, who is McCloud?
How were reporters supposed to investigate something to which they had no after-the-fact access? These were just reporters, with no authority or jurisdiction. Team Trump thoroughly investigated and came up with almost nothing to confirm its claims, and that's what the reporters correctly reported.
I guess Mr. Cloud 'doesn't know' about COVID-19 either since he refused to wear a mask during the Capitol lockdown. You have to have evidence to prove your doubts and not just want to play along with your cronies to curry favor with a certain crowd or person. We go from Blake Farenthold to this. Take off your Trump-colored glasses and see the world as it is and quit posturing. There are real problems that meed to be solved. Quit being a glorified speed bump!
Mr Clegg, what has McCloud done for the region? How sad that he doesn't question his election, only the one he personally didn't like the outcome. Even scarier his denial and his personal thoughts, no facts proven, has caused riots. If I know Republicans if the proof was there, no hearsay's it would be all over the world. So maybe Russian wasn't listening this time. We voted and honestly the Republicans voted for Biden too, you should believe that, when local Repubs win but not the prez, lots of Republicans see the light maybe McCloud should too. Instead of causing mayhem with his rhetoric.
Why does the Advocate publish a photo featuring a profanity inscribed flag, but does not allow the profanity in print? Glasses for the
My problem is that the media never investigated the claims. They immediately began reporting that the claims were false. These were reporters, not commentators expressing an opinion. I believe there would have been less hostility if reporters would have offered explanations for what the Trump group were claiming. To just blow off the claims only added fuel to conspiracy theory.
The Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said that Joe Biden I legitimately won the election, this was echoed by house minority leader McCarthy and number three Leader Liz Cheney. Yet,he doesn’t know if Biden won! This is the man who wants to believe that he knows more about Pennsylvania selection laws than the republican legislators who passed them......He doesn’t know if Biden won...lol ....He might ought to turn on his television Wednesday!
“I’m sorry, but you can identify Trump people,” Karen said. “They’re the ones who stayed in the lines, behind the ropes, who respected the property.”
Beg your pardon, but cannot you see the "Profanity Biden" and the altered American flag in your first photo in the Advocate?
"I can't imagine what the experience was for (U.S. Rep.) Michael Cloud", she noted.
Try imagining the experience of Officer Sicknick, beaten to death by the Trump mob with an American flag.
“ Asked whether he thought Trump should have handled things differently on the day of the riot, Cloud said he would have to analyze the President’s actions that day more carefully.
“They always say you have 20/20 vision in hindsight,” Cloud said. “I’m sure if he had to look back, he would think through things as well.”......HUH? Representative Cloud had all that time to read about Pennsylvania’s election laws and he doesn’t have the time to evaluate the president’s reaction to a siege. Mr. Cloud and his Freedom Caucus will continue to support a right wing extremist agenda. Yes, he is a good family man and a genuine nice person but it’s ideology above country for him.
Mr Coffey, you are wrong on all fronts. Rep. cloud represents the people of our region and he is a good moral man. Biden is an old man who has done nothing good in his entire life. Except get rich off his position. And spread the wealth with his family
That dude’s ears are giving him away.
Mr. Cloud, by his conspiratorial beliefs that lack any basis in fact or rationality, as well as his seditious claims and behavior, disqualifies himself as a suitable representative for the 27th District in the House of Representatives. He should resign.
Quincy, I have not seen where Hillary did anything wrong, but since you brought her up, I think she would a been better President than Trump. As far as your last question about the media striking down propaganda and down right lies and hate, I don’t think they’re picking on the right. It applies to all using their platforms. Good old American ethics. Your hope and prayer that you all can stop me before I destroy the country kind of troubles me, and finally no you can probably not suggest what I’m in favor of, unless of course there good ideas. I am open to them from Democrats and Republicans....Glen
Bravo editors. Thanks..Glen
Thank you jackie
Good men to kick in the door like that
Hey mr s i'm just one small fool, hardly any weight on this big ship. But the collective weight of liberal fools and foolery who claim unlimited gender identity is big tonnage. As mr q.t. suggests the karowhatevers are not my point, i gladly concede that to you. And by the way i didnt blame you for anything.
In my opinion Steve was talking about the fact that in todays liberal agenda you get to decide what gender you are and they have several from which you can chose. In my real world, not discussing your biological anomalies, there are but two sexes and the fools that think that they can change that by choosing something else is what he was talking about. Flaming pink haired males who think they are females or red headed females who have decided they are men are the fools he is talking about and the society that says this is true is totally foolish in its actions. The ship continues to sink!!!
The weight pulling the ship deeper is the inaccurate statements on your part. You made a claim about genetics; it was wrong. Don't blame me for that.
It's not my fault you made a claim that is demonstrably wrong.
Don't take that me up with me; take it up with geneticists (which is what karyotyping is).
You wanted to talk about the science of DNA as it relates to sex, so let's do that. The problem, as I showed, is that it's not at all what you want it to be.
C’mon Quincy, All Trump had to do was concede after the whole country and all the courts said he lost. Instead he assembles his mob for another virus and lie spreading event, at our cost. The Grand Old Party should have shut him down along time ago. I don’t think he should go to prison, but an ankle bracelet and probation wouldn’t hurt, along with a civics course, so he can recognize where he went wrong...Glen
The siege took place eight days before the articles of impeachment was passed with ten Republicans voting with the Dems....Had nothing to due with the “ no mask” incident...Representative was filmed not wearing a mask that day because she was advised to put on her gas mask......Newsweek Jan 12,2021...Another case of a failed whataboutism example. Wear a mask,it’s what this article is about.
May god bless you and your family at time of grief . RIP Sam
The Dems are ripping our country apart with another impeachment without grounds but just so Nancy can punish Trump and you are worried and writing about a mask not being worn! I saw a video of one of the "squad", who was protesting about people not wearing mask, not wearing a mask herself! So is this do as I say not as I do and forget the big issues while I distract you with the little petty garbage?
Aye captain! You've "blinded me with science! failed me in biology". the ship sinks further.
It is a focal point since 3 representatives tested positive for Covid after the incident. The direct correlation is unknown. After the Capitol police escorted hundreds of representatives to a secure room,Nancy Pelosi said everyone should be wearing masks (standard protocol) and sent someone to provide masks to those who did not have one. In defiance about half of the Republican legislators did not done a mask....Several WH super-spreading have taken place prior to the incident. Covid precaution ranks high on my list.
very true, jackie
He refused to wear a mask for the same reason other republicans refused to wear a mask. Not wearing a mask demonstrates his loyalty to Donald Trump even if it means putting others at risk.
It is interesting that a rep not wearing a mask is the focal point Mr. Meador wrote about if indeed he thought the protest at the Capitol was actually an insurrection. If I thought my life may be in danger from violent aggression, a mask would likely be far down my list of priorities. Seems a silly thing to attack our honorable, hardworking Congressman about. There are plenty of other things going on in our country right now needing attention much more important than if someone did or did not wear a mask at a time of a national incident.
No surprise Joel. He seems to have no problem ignoring facts and helping Trump perpetuate his twisted agenda...Glen Ullman
You are right, I don't care who stands outside the polling places as long as they don't go in the booth with me and i don't have to wear anything that says for whom I voted. The only fraud I know off is the guy that tried to vote for Trump.
Yes we will see.
January Sixth, 2021. I'll say it again. Michael Cloud ran. He hid. He left subordinates in harm's way to protect him and to face the symbols, the weapons, the President, and the mob he helped create and support. He was frightened. Re-call him. The sea of flags that attacked our, our, Capitol were the banners of Trump, and desecrated American flags brandished as weapons to bludgeon the very Police attempting to protect him. His excuses fail.
So sad also sad that our senior citizens have to travel out of town to get vaccine! Why is Victoria not getting more vaccines?
"Claims of a crooked election" were never given a chance to be proven by a court trial.
"Encouraging your party to keep fighting" is far from encouraging them to tear down their capitol.
I totally agree. What can I do to make a difference?
Very good letter.
My complements on an excellent letter Steve!
Mike, the concept of "the pen is mightier than the sword" is to use the written word to convince people that your ideas are better than theirs and win them over without bloodshed, something that the Dems don't have any understanding of. The censorship that is going on now has NOTHING to do with that and if it was happening to the Dems or YOU, YOU would be screaming your head off. This is NOT GOOD for the country! Be very careful what you are rooting for!
Remember "what do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now" and "pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon"? What was that? It wasn't one or two people but the chant of the whole organization!
Ismael was a good friend of mine. Ismael was a fine Christian business man. He had
high morals and was willing to do what it took to get the job done. I never him down, but always smiling chewing a stick of Juicy Fruit. I know that he will be missed by many people. May God bless the entire Gutierrez family during your time
of loss. Ricky and Carol Ann Lenz
For anyone asking who Ken Jennings is, this from Wikipedia: "Ken Jennings is an American game show contestant, consultant, author, and television host. He is the highest-earning American game show contestant of all time. Jennings holds the record for the longest winning streak on the U.S. game show Jeopardy! with 74 consecutive wins." Wikipedia fails to mention that Jennings also won the title of "Best Ever" in a recent Jeopardy tournament of long-term Jeopardy champions.
IMO, Jennings is doing an excellent job of hosting Jeopardy so far, and the symmetry of having Jeopardy's best host ever replaced by its best contestant ever is the chocolate chips in the cookie.
The County may need to consider using volunteers for both managing phone calls and wait lists as well as giving vaccines. There are lots of retired County employees, healthcare workers and others who can give vaccines. There are many people who can handle wait lists, such as those who volunteer to phone banks and keep track of voter lists. There are retired Administrators and supervisors who could organize these people thus freeing up current staff. We don’t want to just sit here snd be unprepared
Ha ha “ The silent majority” I haven’t heard that since Nixon....The 2018 midterm election was a referendum on Trump and the Dems took the House,several state Houses etc. This time the majority ( by more than 7 million votes) said no to Trump,and again in Georgia as they took over the Senate....Guns,violence,BLM,and Antifa is just a deflection. ...”The pen is mightier than the sword” as witnessed by the private sector companies banning Trump and his ilk.
No BLM protest has ever had the chant “hang Mike Pence”. An open threat to harm the leaders of any nation is a threat against that nation.
My deepest sympathy to the family.
We all witnessed the silent majority during the last to elections. Now we are witnessing the minority denying reality in the most unlawful way....Glen Ullman
Do your research before you quote somemone! VP Garner said this --https://www.cah.utexas.edu/news/press_release.php?press=press_bucket It was about the position of VP NOT the Congress!!
97 more cases today one more death. Please Public Officials try harder to get the doses we need and make some kind of list that people can get on so it won't just word of mouth when there is a vaccine being given. Charlotte Bues
Hi Fain - thank you for posting your question! We'll include this in our list of questions we're bring to vaccine experts and immunologists. All the best, Ciara McCarthy, Advocate reporter
Allen, haven't you and the other dems worn out the race card by now?
Well said Steve, I'll be standing beside you.
Ok you tell me where is the actual threat, where are the words of 'demonization'and where does the letter writer even imply much less state that he considers anyone less than human? Those sir are your thoughts and your words, not his.
How is this letter not considered a threat issued to all the people the GOP demonizes and seems to consider less than human?
Glad im not the only one responding with '?' But as a conservative i marvel at bidens and afew other democrats call for us all to unite. Just what did the dem party do this past year or 2 that was anything but self serving?
thank you star parker, thank you victoria advocate for sharing ms. parker's insights
And that's why Trump, Giuliani and so many other Republicans were aiding, abetting and encouraging them, Billy? Right.
My heartfelt condolences to all the family and friends. My the perpetual light shine upon her and eternal rest be granted unto her.
There isn’t any valid reason for bars to be closed.
When Our Lady appeared in Fatima in 1917 she said God is greatly offended and we needed to fast and pray. We did not do this and WW1 happened. I encourage everyone to watch the new Fatima movie. Very eye opening. If we would just obey our world would be so different.
We grew up with Alex. Great person. May he Rest In Peace... Condolences to you all.. Vera Ybarbo
Maybe they need to find out more about the ones that were a arrested . They might not have been Trump supporters at all. My money is on they were part of the Antifa movement and were made to look like Trump supporter.
It's unbelievable that the military wasn't standing at the ready to deal with the inevitable; open revolt and invasion of the Capitol. How could they have thought this wasn't going to happen, especially with Trump's and Giuliani's seditious remarks and urging? Sedition is a serious felony, so why aren't they behind bars, Giuliani at least?
I get it, Republican's protester's are mobs and Democrat backed BLM and Antifa are peaceful.
I am so sorry to hear of Barbara's passing. Eventhough I have not seen her in years I
have great memories of our friendship in our earlier years. May she rest in peace.
Thank you, Donald John Trump for giving these treasonous, violent persons permission and encouragement to try to overthrow the duly elected POTUS.
We were sorry to hear that Mrs. New had passed away. She was a devoted Christian woman who always had a smile on her face. We know she was a devoted member of
First Baptist Church. She was a good friend of my aunt Marian Boyd. We know Mrs.
New will be missed by many people. May God bless the entire New family during your time of loss. Mrs. New will never be forgotten. Ricky and Carol Ann Lenz
The vaccine is currently unavailable to almost everyone in the Crossroads, so this is a pointless question. A more useful question, especially in terms of inventory planning, would be, "Will you take the vaccine when it becomes available to you?".
Where can we find out the truth about the side effects and adverse reactions?
Oh please..."the churches are full of smart people" really? and you don't need a building in order to pray. I'm so tired of people "hiding behind the cloth" in order to do what they want.
You can exhale now, Roy. They've gotten away with their blatant rip-off, and it's all blown over. Nothing more will be heard from them on the subject. They had a bit of a close call on this one, so it'll probably be a while until the next.
