The GOP could have had a bi-partisan commission in which the minority would have had input into who was subpoenaed. The House GOP rep negotiated in good faith and got everything he was told to get.
The GOP never thought he would get it and panicked. It's that simple.
Now Speaker Peloci can appoint a select committee of her choosing. Contrary to what some are posting, she does not need any input from the Senate. She can name anyone she wants. I would hope she would name a commission along the lines of the agreement, but that is he so purview.
Mitch and McCarthy want to avoid a reckoning because it will trash them in the md-terms.
There WILL be a reckoning. I am not moving on and neither are the vast majority of the American public.
This was an attempted coup of American democracy and there will be a reckoning.

Talk about going over to the "Dark Side"....and it was all started by Darth Vader Trump...
I prefer "Less intelligent Voldemort" - all the sociopathy with none of the competence.
There is zero evidence of any election fraud, period. This is voter suppression because when urban and minority voters vote, the GOQ loses, period.
We now have documented evidence in the form of e-mails that 1 hour before announcing that Barr would step down, e-mails from Trump's assistant to the new acting AG to investigate election fraud which is not kosher. Not kosher at all.
Later on, Trump's chief of staff sends videos alleging that the Italians used satellites to change votes. Yeah, because Italy is a tech giant.
The AG shares the videos with his assistant who responds with 2 words: "pure insanity."
There is no backing for any of these claims and those backing it are making fools of themselves. I cannot help but wonder if there are not a large number of independents and former Republicans that are looking at this and saying "That is enough of you guys." I cannot help but wonder if there are not quite a few urban and minority voters who are looking at these efforts to suppress their voting rights are thinking "I will damn sure vote no matter what and I know who I am NOT voting for."

One more time, there is zero evidence of organized wide-spread voter fraud: zilch, zip, nada, nil, none and no one has provided any. Voter fraud is not a thing.
This is a solution in search of a problem. Unless the problem is that your party lost.
These are voter suppression efforts. Specifically minority voter suppression efforts. Because when minorities and urban voters vote, Republicans lose.
It really is that simple.

One more time, there is no moral equivalence between sporadic violence at mostly peaceful protests (some of which was instigated by right-wing extremist infiltrators) against institutional racism and an (semi) organized attack on a co-equal branch of government in an attempt to invalidate the results of a free and fair election.
No moral equivalence whatsoever.
People who committed acts of destruction at BLM protests and anarchists in Portland should be arrested and held to account. But they were not trying to overthrow the government because they didn't like it that they lost. It's just not even in the same universe.
Oh, and Antifa is not an organized group. It has no membership roles. It has no organizing principle other than being against Fascism (like that is a bad thing.) My grandfather was a member of the original Antifa. Back then it was known as the United States Army.

For those of us old enough to remember, Reagan went down this road, and got laughed out of court.
For you strict constructionists here the Constitution is quite clear. Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of a religion. Furthermore the Supremacy Clause establishes the Constitution of the United States as the supreme law of the land meaning that the Florida state government cannot make laws counter to U.S. Constitution.
Reagan even did the "moment of quiet reflection" bit. Nope. You can pray at home or in your local house of worship. You may take your recess or lunch time (free period, whatever) to pray as some in my public Jr. High did. But the government may not mandate time for religious worship in a publicly funded school. Period.

Many QAnon followers believe former President Donald Trump was fighting enemies within the so-called “deep state” to expose a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibals operating a child sex trafficking ring.
Believing any part of this should be ample cause for the forfeiture of the right to own a gun.
Idiots, caught up in a truly stupid conspiracy theory with guns. What could possibly go wrong?

It’s laughable for posters to say that Biden will cave on Russia and China. He is doing exactly what they feared he would do: unite our allies and speak with a unified voice about breakdowns in international norms, human rights violations and military posturing.

His speech and the Q and A were just embarrassing. He is clearly struggling
I’m sorry, have you ever heard Trump speak? Flubbing basic vocabulary. Incoherent sentence structure. The beginning and ending of sentences having nothing to do with each other. Reading from the tele-prompter like a hostage video.
Not only is Trump the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen, he’s worse than W at public speaking and that’s not something I ever thought I would see.

A war monger who became PM based on his dead brother’s heroics.
Never saw a war he wouldn’t love (for the US to fight for him). Never saw a non-Jewish minority he wouldn’t oppress.
So glad he’s gone regardless of what comes next.
