Regarding Carlson getting the cctv footage from the capitol

I can already see one obvious story they will run. Ashley Babbit. When she was shot, there were calls for the capitol police to reveal the identity of the security officer who did it. Ultimately, his actions were reviewed, deemed appropriate and his identity was kept secret to protect him and his family.

That CCTV footage is from all angles, every CCTV camera. So, its very likely that there is an angle from the other side of that door where the officer was that shows his face. He will be doxed and hunted by the magats. He and his family will have to go in hiding or risk getting killed.

Its not hyperbola, the magats did that to some election officials. Given how hyped they were about Babbit and the number of conspiracy theories that flourished, its exactly what will happen.

McCarthy will be responsible for whatever might happen.

President Biden Sotus address in the context of the 2024 candidacy.

President Biden delivered a magnificent address, simultaneously highlighting his administration's many successes while directly pushing back at the gop and playing them like a fiddle.

Last night he clearly demonstrated to naysayers that he is still one of the best retail politician in history. He was born to be a leader and president.
How many presidents managed to turn around right direction/wrong direction polls in one night by 60 points in some instances ?

That SOTUS speech will be studied by future generations of political science students.

Clearly it should set aside all claims that President Biden is not sharp or energetic enough .

This brings me to a question. The dnc recently announced that they are reshuffling the primaries, South Carolina will be first.

After tonight, is there anybody on our side who would challenge Biden for nomination? Usually incumbent presidents seeking reelection aren't challenged in their own party.

So, those changes in primaries with really come into play into 2028.

Upcoming congressional fiscal policies deadlines.


The President signed the FY 2023 omnibus appropriations bill on Thursday, Dec. 29. The House passed the measure by a 221-205-1 vote on Friday, Dec. 23, following Senate passage by a 68-29 vote on Thursday, Dec. 22. To allow more time for full enactment of the omnibus, Congress enacted a third continuing resolution for FY 2023 through Dec. 30.

The next few years will include several predictable fiscal policy deadlines that will force congressional action. Numerous provisions providing COVID relief expire at the end of the year. Many of the regular non-COVID deadlines could bring additional costs if Congress acts irresponsibly, or they could present an opportunity for Congress to reduce deficits.

With a dysfunctional house of representatives, what are the hurdles one must overcome to keep the country going?

This article summarizes that well.

Of note, the debt ceiling limit which is estimated to be reached this summer.

Then, of course the student loan repayment which is currently paused after the attempt to forgive some of the debt was blocked by the courts.

A few other interesting things there I was not aware of.

Will McCarthy still be at the helm in september 2023 when the next budget has to get negociated and voted? I am skeptical.
