An excellent timeline of Trump's actions up to and including the Jan 6 insurrection

Heather Cox Richardson: Letters from an American

"Today, United States District Judge David O. Carter of the United States District Court for the Central District of California ordered John Eastman to disclose 101 documents to the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol.

During the riot, Pence’s lawyer Greg Jacob emailed Eastman that the rioters “believed with all their hearts the theory they were sold about the powers that could legitimately be exercised at the Capitol on this day…. [a]nd thanks to your bullshit, we are now under siege.” Eastman responded: “The ‘siege’ is because YOU and your boss did not do what was necessary to allow this to be aired in a public way so the American people can see for themselves what happened.”

Judge Carter concluded that Trump’s actions “more likely than not constitute attempts to obstruct an official proceeding.” He also concluded that “Trump likely knew the electoral count plan had no factual justification.” The plan, Carter wrote, “was a last-ditch attempt to secure the Presidency by any means.” He also found that “it is more likely than not that President Trump and Dr. Eastman dishonestly conspired to obstruct the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021.”

The Hartmann Report - So much important stuff


1. Was Clarence Thomas trying for a twofer?

2.After the single most racist confirmation hearing before the US Senate in my long lifetime, Republican leader Mitch McConnell says he’s not going to vote for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

3. Republicans in Arizona just passed the most extreme voter purge in history, requiring anybody who registered to vote more than 18 years ago to re-register before their votes can be counted.

4.What’s going on with Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s decision to abandon his office’s prosecution of Donald Trump and his family?

And much more...

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the U.S. Constitution & a wake-up call to us all

Letters from an American:

'Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson endured vicious attacks from Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who vow to reject her confirmation...the hearings inspired Republicans to challenge many of the civil rights decisions that most Americans believe are settled law....The rights Republicans challenged this week included the right to use birth control, access abortion, marry across racial lines, and marry a same-sex partner

A 2019 speech by then–attorney general William Barr at the University of Notre Dame offers an explanation...by “self-government,” the Framers did not mean the ability of people to vote for representatives of their choice. Rather, he said, they meant individual morality: the ability to govern oneself. And, since people are inherently wicked, that self-government requires the authority of a religion: Christianity.'


Will Joe soon be making another SCOTUS nomination??

Court remains silent on Thomas’ condition after he entered the hospital last week

'...the Supreme Court is providing no updates on his condition. For the third consecutive day, the 73-year-old justice was not on the bench when the justices heard oral argument; the court’s only comment on Thomas’ status Wednesday came from Chief Justice John Roberts, who indicated that Thomas “was unable to be present” but would nonetheless participate in the consideration and decision of Wednesday’s case based on the briefs and oral argument transcript.'


WTF? Graham on another rant today.

Outstanding opening well worth a listen.

Republicans attempt to attach liberal democracy to pedophilia

Heather Cox Richardson: Letters from an American

She covers a lot of topics in this letter, all of them important, but this is a stomach churning abomination by conservative political and religious leaders that seemed to have begun with Putin.

'In 2013, Putin shored up his waning popularity by passing legislation that banned allowing children to see “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,”...He equated modern liberal democracies, with their defense of the rights of all, with pedophilia."

'American evangelicals embraced that connection. Franklin Graham wrote: “In my opinion, Putin is right on these issues…. [H]e has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.”

'...senator Rick Scott, has provided a blueprint for what the Republicans will do if they get a majority...“An 11-point plan to rescue America,”'

“The nuclear family is crucial to civilization, it is God’s design for humanity, and it must be protected and celebrated...The fanatical left seeks to devalue and redefine the traditional family...To protect the family, the Republican plan calls for destroying the business regulation, social safety net, federal promotion of infrastructure, and protection of civil rights that Americans have embraced since the 1930s and handing power over to the wealthy.
