Here is to all of you out there who have somehow held on during the reign of terror, who feel broken, who swallowed shards of rage and will never see your country the same way again. Here is to your courage for surviving, for voting, for speaking, for being. Never forget what you did in November of 2020.
The Patriotic Millionaires issued a statement calling for those members of the House and Senate who incited with Trump the violent, armed insurrection to be removed from office and tried for sedition.
This is his first real go at reality as an adult, and he's way too emotionally incapable of making this transition. It won't be easy for him. Of course, Trump isn't going to go silently. But go he will.
The following is a PoliticusUSA editorial by Editor in Chief Sarah Jones.
President-elect Joe Biden received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history, but Democrats didn’t expand the House as predicted or take back the Senate (pending Georgia run offs). This has led to endless “Democrats in disarray” hot takes. Yes, we have just narrowly escaped the sweaty clutches of a wannabe autocrat and already the press is concerned about Democrats.
There is too much at stake for the public to be clinging to impeachment unicorns. It's clear that impeachment will do nothing to Donald Trump. Sure, it should still happen because it's the right legal process, but it won't save this country.
This might seem like just another Trump scandal, another horrible person he’s put into power, but it’s so much more than that.
It would be a lie to tell you that I don't think this president deserves to be impeached, or that I don't agree that the rule of law is imperiled if he is not impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate. Intellectually, impeachment is the only answer to the immoral, unlawful attacks on democracy that are Donald Trump's presidency.
Stand up for women like you stand up for any other cause: We are real, we are right here, and we are in a crisis heretofore unseen.
People need to stay resolute about reality, demand that news networks stop playing Trump’s lies without correcting them first
Pelosi is not just doing her job to finally put a constitutional check on this presidency -- this crime and ethics violation ridden presidency, but she is quietly giving the women of this country the feeling that they matter and she won’t let this subjugating tyrant get off on hurting people anymore.
Those who claim this was a fight between parties are ignoring that one party was doing the will of the people, while the other was not. The Speaker got it done because it was the right thing to do and it should be remembered that she is not the person who held the government and 2 million people hostage over a failed campaign promise.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA‘s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
The day before a judge admonished Trump‘s former National Security Adviser for selling out his country, suggesting that Flynn committed treason, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone admitted to spreading lies on Alex Jones’ conspiracy oriented InfoWars.
I went to the Tree of Life Synagogue on Friday to follow up on the horrific slaughter of eleven innocent Jewish and I was surprised by what I felt and found.
The first thing I found was love.
The media is going to continue to help Trump push his caravan lies until you tell them to stop by voting with your remotes.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA’s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
The mob is real; it’s Republican, and it’s dangerous. The media needs to do its job regarding Trump and the Republicans’ dangerous rhetoric against Democrats and liberals.
But by Monday, I knew it was a lifetime war. Tuesday I knew I would get there. And I will.
People tell me I can’t speak about this because I am biased. I disagree.
I have mentioned this in passing before, but now I’m going to come out with the story of an ongoing sexual assault that happened to me at work, so that I can use it to explain things very slowly to Republican enablers of rapists.
Why is Leader Nancy Pelosi labeled “polarizing” when Republicans, with whom the majority of the public does not agree, are not? I asked her this in an exclusive interview and she told me “They’re afraid of me, they’re afraid of women.”
"Fake news" is the chant Trump started to generate hatred toward journalists, along with saying they are the enemy of the people. So when the White House repeatedly includes "innocent" as qualifier to who shouldn't be shot, it's not meaningless. Context matters.
Feel defeated? Too bad. There is no time for that. It is time to fight for your country at every turn. It is time for non-violent protests everywhere. It is time to let the Democratic Party leaders know that you WILL NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE.
