A Star is Born: Amanda Gorman

I hope Biden changes his mind about traveling by train to DC

We're all aware of his affinity for train travel and it is a great symbolic event - in any other time. I did a search and it appears that the trip that was planned before the Capitol insurrection and the FBI warning about threats is still on:

Going by train is unlike any other mode of transportation he could take. Trains can't veer off the tracks or stop quickly and back up. Some of the terrorists are adept at building bombs. A bomb or bombs could be planted or buried beforehand at multiple locations and detonated by remote control. They don't have to be right there. It is a 100 mile trip. There is no way they can check out the entire areas of 100 miles of track. Anyone who thinks it's not a big deal and LE will take care of it, hasn't been paying attention.

In addition to the upcoming good things like the inauguration ...

... and Democrats taking over the Senate, there is another event to look forward to: Rush Limbaugh will die!

Brianna getting ready to Roll the Tape on the enablers

On CNN. Should be a classic.

So are they only going after the "leaders"?

Just now on CNN, the FBI and other agencies want to identify the leaders of the attack. This post isn't about gouliani and dump, who should be and won't charged. It's about the hundreds of foot soldiers who invaded the Capitol and terrorized those inside while destroying property and attempting to foment an insurrection. There are hundreds of images of them. They aren't leaders but they vandalized the building, trespassed on federal property with intent to do violence and terrorized the people inside and perhaps even more (some were carrying zip ties for handcuffing). These Terrorists need to be gone after just as hard as the leaders.

Shut up Lankford, you POS

You enabler. NOW you're trying to make nice. You fucking hypocrite trying to cover your ass.

Walking them politely off the Capitol steps ... isn't that nice?

Wonder why they got such nice treatment?

Abrams: "Revenge can be very cathartic"

There are so many things to love about her but this story shows it best for me:

snip

"A few weeks after Stacey Abrams narrowly lost her bid for governor, she spoke to a sold-out crowd in Nashville about her journey from despondency to determination.

'Revenge,” she said, “can be very cathartic.'”


She didn't get down and give up, she fought back in the hardest, most unglamorous way of all: voter registration and GOTV. Not only did she lead the charge for Biden to take Georgia, she and the volunteers got 100,000 MORE people to vote in a RUNOFF!

A true American hero.
