  1. DC Leaders Knew About The Threat Of Right-Wing Violence Ahead Of The Capitol Riot. But They Were More Worried About Trump. WWW.BUZZFEEDNEWS.COM Concerned the president might invoke the Insurrection Act to commandeer the city police, DC council members never expected an assault on the Capitol itself. DC statehood needs to happen, and for reasons that don't have anything to do with the balance of power in the Senate
  2. So do you think there's any actual plan if he starts issuing pardons to everyone around him tomorrow, like he's already talked about, or is the plan to just stand around and watch it happen?
  3. I think one thing it's very important to know is how many members of Congress Trump called directly before the vote and what exactly was said
  4. Jesus... Because I'm on Twitter and read about this stuff there, and post on this board, I feel like was more aware of the Q stuff than most of the country, but seeing what we've seen the last few says, I feel like even I've been in denial about how big it's gotten. It's everywhere. I don't know what to do about it. Hopefully with the coordinated tech crackdown it's like shutting a gas leak off and enough people get their heads out of the fog, but you know the biggest posters in this movement are gonna find a way to keep posting.
  5. Which raises questions about how serious the injuries are for some of the other injured officers which as far as I know there have been absolutely no updates about from the government.
  6. I think this is probably our best hope for the short term--the brands determine that a fascist takeover is too disruptive to business
  7. The reason they're trying to making "unity and healing" stick as the narrative is that there's nothing else they can possibly say that isn't insane on its face or that reveals how complicit they were in the run-up to this
  8. It really seems like the chain of command totally broke down on Wednesday, and the plan is just to sweat out the next 10 days and hope nobody asks too many questions about it
  9. Thinking about this a lot, specifically in the context of whether anyone is doing anything to make sure there will be a proper response if this happens again between now and the 20th
  10. Know what else might hamper an incoming Biden administration? Uhh, a burgeoning fascist movement.
  11. lol I didn't even realize that was the game theory guy. That was RTed by somebody else.
  12. This is basically now the standard line from Republicans against impeachment, and I've seen multiple people today point out, correctly, that it's basically the exact language that domestic abusers use. "Just don't provoke me and I won't have to do it again."
  13. May this trend continue Some Florida Republicans changing voter registrations in aftermath of Trump supporters’ rampage through Capitol WWW.SUN-SENTINEL.COM The temporary takeover of the Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump may be prompting some South Florida voters to leave the Republican Party.
  14. Looks like they're gonna see if this is good enough for Apple
  15. I think it's possible, but it's not written in the stars. I think what happens in the aftermath of this matters a lot. Trump actually being charged with a crime--ANY of his crimes, which are obvious and numerous at this point--would make me feel a lot better.
  16. I see a lot of leftists on Twitter basically already accepting it as fate that this is going to be an exact repeat of 2008-2010, and that a GOP resurgence is inevitable. And when you look at how much gerrymandering and population distribution favors Republicans, and how tenuous the congressional majorities are, it's easy to feel that way. But the fact that Biden was up at the podium yesterday saying, correctly, that because interest rates on debt are so low that they can continue to deficit spend to address the crisis is seemingly a signal that at there are at least some voices around Biden wh
  17. The fact that a lot of the people in the capital were age 50+ is one thing that's keeping me from being completely despondent about the future. I think that generation was completely brain-poisoned by decades of right-wing propaganda, and that at, in spite of all the awful shit there is online, young people by and large haven't been dosed with it in the same way.
  18. People are still serving a wannabe dictator in part because of our lack of universal health-care Senior Trump Official: We Were Wrong, He’s a ‘Fascist’ NYMAG.COM “The legacy of the Trump administration is going to be that the president sparked an insurrection and people died.”
