Can we invoke the 25th and impeach him?

Make him the ultimate example for those that may want to do the same thing.

We need to show that this action against us will not go unpunished.

Arizona border deaths hit 10-year high after record heat

Arizona border deaths hit 10-year high after record heat
By Associated Press | January 6, 2021 at 3:50 PM MST - Updated January 6 at 3:52 PM


PHOENIX (AP) — A project that maps the bodies of border-crossers recovered from Arizona’s inhospitable deserts, valleys and mountains said it documented 227 deaths in 2020, the highest in a decade after the hottest, driest summer in state history.

The previous annual high mapped by the Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office in Tucson and the nonprofit Humane Borders was 224 migrant deaths in 2010.

Enforcement efforts in California and Texas over the years have pushed migrants into dangerous terrain in Arizona without easy access to food and water. Humanitarian groups like No More Deaths leave water jugs and other provisions in remote parts of southern Arizona in hopes of saving lives in a region where nearly 3,400 migrant deaths have been documented since 2004.

After today, this needs posted again.

"My younger self was right"! I'm believing this more today than ever.

I think we need to stop giving in to them. Like with the ACA. We gave in on curtain parts to get it past. No more

We need to take some flesh from them for a change. Time we to use our new power to fix the damage republicans did to the ACA. We also need to pass common sense gun laws, raise the minimum wage and make it a living wage, make meaningful steps to end systemic racism and make it where women can have their right to an abortion. That's just for starters.

We also need to keep the seats of power. We can't let our guard down. Too many in this country and the world is counting on us to keep sanity in our government.

From BuzzFeed about the stunning Democratic WIN!

Democrat Jon Ossoff Has Defeated Republican David Perdue, Giving Democrats A Stunning Sweep Across Georgia’s Senate Races

Democrat Jon Ossoff won his tight Senate race, with both Georgia Democrats defeating their Republican runoff opponents in historic victories for a stunning rebuke of President Donald Trump in a state that had been a Republican stronghold for years. With Ossoff joining Democrat Raphael Warnock in the Senate, their party will be able to take total control of Congress.

Warnock is the first Black person elected to represent Georgia in the Senate and will be one of only three Black people in the Senate once his term begins. Ossoff, 33, would be the youngest member of the Senate.

The results are a testament to the decadeslong political organizing of Black women in Georgia who worked toward expanding the electorate and protecting voting rights in the state.

Tweet from Congresswoman Cori Bush....


Congresswoman Cori Bush
@RepCori
I believe the Republican members of Congress who have incited this domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election must face consequences. They have broken their sacred Oath of Office.

I will be introducing a resolution calling for their expulsion.

I'm so upset right now. My country is under attack!

I'm angry and I'm crying. This is my country and these monsters are making us look like fools to the world.

I love my country. I bleed red, white and blue. I have lived the dream. Yeah, I'm still struggling but I still have a fighting chance.

And today I saw sedition in my country, pure and simple. It can not stand without punishment to the ringleader. That leader is Donald J. Trump.

Watching this travesty just shows how right that quote that is said of Ben Franklin is, "A Republic,if you can keep it." And we are in a fight, make no mistake.

Like to thank our side for not being in the fray.

That makes us look good. Trumpers are looking more and more like thugs. I think this could help kill trumpism.

United States presidential election of 1876. Don't know why this is coming to mind.

From the Encyclopaedia Britannica: United States presidential election of 1876, disputed American presidential election held on November 7, 1876, in which Republican Rutherford B. Hayes defeated Democrat Samuel J. Tilden. Tilden led Hayes by more than 260,000 popular votes, and preliminary returns showed Tilden with 184 electoral votes (one shy of the majority needed to win the election) to Hayes’s 165, with the 19 electoral votes of three states (Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina) and one elector from Oregon (originally awarded to Tilden) still in doubt. The U.S. Congress subsequently created an Electoral Commission, which by early March 1877 had resolved all the disputed electoral votes in favour of Hayes, giving him a 185–184 electoral college victory.
