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
Ryan Brooks

Posted on January 6, 2021, at 8:14 a.m. ET



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.

Pro-Trump forums erupt with violent threats ahead of Wednesday’s rally against the 2020 election

Far-right online forums are seething with references to potential violence and urging supporters of President Trump to bring guns to Wednesday’s protests in Washington — in violation of local laws — as Congress meets to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Many of the posts appear to be direct responses to Trump’s demands that his supporters pack the nation’s capital in support of his bogus claims that November’s national vote for Biden resulted from election fraud. Congress’s largely ceremonial role in confirming Biden’s victory has emerged as a catalyst for expected unrest that has D.C. police and the National Guard deploying on city streets to quell potential trouble.

Talk of guns and potential violence is rife on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, the conservative social media site Parler and on thedonald.win, an online forum that previously operated on Reddit before the company banned it in June after years of racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism and calls for violence.

Because everyone is paying attention to GA, Chump has to get attention.

Looks like they are setting up a big “voter dump” against the Republican candidates. Waiting to see how many votes they need?

Washington(CNN)Former President George W. Bush will attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, and former President Jimmy Carter will not, their respective representatives said Tuesday.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will attend the inauguration, according to Freddy Ford, Bush's chief of staff. The Bushes also attended Barack Obama and Donald Trump's first inaugurations.

"President and Mrs. Bush look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris," Ford said in a statement. "I believe this will be the eighth inauguration they've had the privilege of attending -- President Trump's being the most recent -- and witnessing the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our democracy that never gets old."
