America is living through a literal nightmare, after the right wing Trumpist Fascist attack on the US Capitol Building on January 6!
Nearly a generation after the September 11, 2001 Attacks by Al Qaeda, we now have domestic terrorism at its peak as the inauguration of Joe Biden occurs eight days from today.
There are reported threats not just on Washington, DC, but also on all fifty state capitals in the next week, with plans revealed for a major threat on this coming weekend, and increasing as January 20 comes upon us!
And we have a unhinged, mentally deranged President now facing a second impeachment, which is justified, but will incite ever more reaction by lunatic seditionists and traitors.
That is why this author and blogger advocates that the inaugural ceremonies be held inside a fortified US Capitol building, not outside, as is customary!
In 1985, Ronald Reagan, then the oldest President at an inauguration, now to be surpassed by Joe Biden, had his second inauguration inside the US Capitol due to the coldest Inauguration Day in American history, with the temperature being 7 degrees Fahrenheit.
There are reports that a multitude of right wing, white supremacist, and neo Nazi groups are targeting not just the inauguration but other locations, and already, the Washington Monument has been shut down, and a high unscalable fence has been built around the US Capitol site, and also the Supreme Court across the street.
Washington DC is becoming a place where security and protection is forever changing due to a multitude of plots by extremists even before this disastrous January 6, 2021 event, and this is a sad, depressing time for American democracy!
But our constitutional system of government is worth fighting for, to protect the republic that has survived Civil War, the Great Depression, and two World Wars!
One thing that has been mentioned is that the rioters weren’t all “blue collar MAGA”. They were lawyers, CEOs, police officers, military soldiers, etc.
Congress were hiding in safe rooms during the attack. Republicans refused to wear masks while they were hiding. Now several members of Congress have tested positive for Covid.
I could care less if the terrorists were lawyers, doctors, or flipped burgers at McDonald’s. They’re just plain full of meanness.
Speaking of Covid, several if my co-workers were exposed during the holidays and are now quarantining.
The creep with the horns has been captured and is in jail. News is that he won’t eat because the food isnâ€™t “organic”. Tough beans buddy, go ahead and starve. Ainâ€™t nobody gonna miss you. What did you think jail was going to be, some kind of fancy hotel? I sure hope that the prison staff does not give in to his whining and give him the old ultimatum that my mother gave me when I was a kid â€“ â€“ take it or leave it.
Rustbelt Democrat, totally in agreement with your sentiments!
Our local school board doesn’t want to go back to 100% virtual learning during this latest surge of Covid. Teachers are upset about that.
News is that some Republican lawmakers gave the rioters a tour of Congress the day before the riot. They need to be expelled from Congress.
Trump is now officially the first “president” to be impeached twice.
For being lawyers and CEOs, they’re rather ignorant.
