Until we get the "snakes" out of the Senate and the House our democracy is still in mortal danger.

There are just too many of the Trumpian snakes left in the House and Senate. They need to be replaced or our democracy is still going to suffer and be destroyed. Everyone of them up for election should be defeated and tossed out of office. Emails and texts from those law-makers are probably more important than the SS texts because SS doesn't make and pass legislation.

The movement to call these snakes out is not BIG enough. Just going after Lindsey Graham is not enough.

Anyone heard the new warnings about COVID? Note from friend who works at FEMA

New variant no symptoms, no fever, lots of joint and upper back pain. resembles strep throat, more virulent, goes directly to lungs, does not live in the naso-pharyngeal, nasal swab test gives lots of negative test results.

Don't know any more. This friend is usually reliable about sharing info. I am looking further.

Latest I could find with a Google search:

What? I missed this before. There were pipe bombs (two) found in the Capitol?

Was that reported before? To me that is huge.

One thing that tonight's J6 Hearing should do is to be sure to capture the names of all the

Congressmen and women who STILL refused to confirm the election results AFTER returning to the House chamber to certify the election results. They are as guilty of insurrection as anyone who stormed the Capitol. Some are still denying the election results today.
They MUST be identified publicly tonight! There still more primaries and people need to know for whom they are voting...no excuses!

It's really the other way around, AG Garland.

Not indicting Trump will interfere with a free and fair election in November and in 2024.

Why can't Dems and at least 10 GOP Senators do for Voting Rights just what they did for Obergefell?

Isn't voting as fundamental if not more Constitutionally fundamental than Obergefell? Voting is what puts into place lawmakers who favor choice, same sex marriage, access to affordable healthcare, interracial marriage. Yet, voting rights seems to be put on the back burner by those who have benefited from progressive voters the most. Sigh...

BUT, BUT THEIR TEXT MESSAGES!! Russia, if you're listening...

This entire episode of missing Secret Service text messages is an epic cover-up. Every Secret Service agent assigned to Trump should be subjected to lie detector tests, their personal and business phones confiscated and just searched, or just fired out-right. They are part of the Treasury Department, not military and therefore subject to Executive firing outright. Damn this double standard of GOP RW conservatives getting away with every damn crime they commit while Dems are pilloried by the public and the media for every little thing from wearing a tan suit to false allegations of running pedophile rings from pizza parlors.

And I say every text message has a sender, receiver, and hidden memory. These men and women were so arrogant I am sure some of them talked to each other over their personal phones too. Remember how they got the texts and emails of Peter Strzok?

This denial of being able to recover the text messages or emails of Trump's Secret Service agents is so much bullshit!!

Anyone here watched or watching "The Mire?"

Makes me shudder to think it could all happen here within the next election cycle. (Netflix)
Worth a binge.
