Biggs is definitely a Trump guy and his success will be tied to Trump. Biggs says the election was stolen from Trump.

“Stop the Steal” organizer Ali Alexander said on video that Biggs, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks “schemed up” the U.S. Capitol rally that became an insurrection leading to five deaths.

Biggs is one of the members of Congress to have donated to Greene’s campaign. He shelled out $1,000.

Ali Akbar, which was the name he was born with, is a POS that stole the "Stop the Steal" org from others and is a total Con man and grifter that used the funds on himself and infiltrated the right to take them down. He's also a really intimate friend with Karl Rove and was part of and connected to the McCain and Lincoln Project pedos.

There is ample evidence that he was one of the actual organizers and planners of the Capitol siege. Don't believe anything that Scammy Davis Jr says.

Maybe you can point me in the right direction, because googling 'Why is Andy Biggs a Nazi' isn't giving me anything of note. I have seen some pretty reprehensible crap put out by the Washington Post though.

The Party and only one party is the only way forward, said the Nazis and the Communists too. You can't really believe that this is correct, do you?

You do have a point. I am sure that every President has tried to get their party in over the other party. Or did I miss it when Obama and Clinton were stumping for Reps in elections?

I do think that the Dems are doing fine without having the entire Congress filled with Dems. They've pushed through an insane $1.9 trillion Covid bill that is paying off their friends. It wasn't even negotiated with the Reps, as they didn't need them with the majority in both parties. They just negotiated between themselves. But hey.."It's always the Reps fault", am I right?

You know there isn’t one Rep who is going to vote yes on anything in the House or Senate for the next four years. Yes, blame the Dems for a Covid relief package that no Republican wanted. I bet if the Dems put a bill up that gave the %1 another tax break, Republicans would freak out wanting to vote yes but, that would mean voting yes on a Dem bill. They would be torn between what they want and spite.

And it doesn't matter that 90% of the Republican constituents not to mention all low wage workers wanted a $15 minimum wage. Nope! It's in our best interests that you don't.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

Not just the GOP, though. 8 Dem senators voted against it. So 16% of them. That isn't trivial.

About time a non trivial amount of them voted against party lines! But that's a different story.

Easy win for Kelly, then. Moderates take AZ statewide seats.

There is a ton more.... So when there is smoke there is fire. If you don't see it maybe look up cognitive dissonance and reflect on why you would not think these are issues that point to values of his character.

Incumbent parties almost always lose seats in midterms, yes? So the Dems are likely to lose the House and/or Senate in 2022, yes? That would really hamper Biden's ability to push legislation, though with the current filibuster it's hard to pass anything but budget reconciliation hacks anyway.
