Let us hope that the only historically significant event tomorrow is that Congress ratifies the election of Joe Biden, and not a violent coup attempt.

We have all the way to the 20th to be concerned about that possibility.

I'm thinking we should have a panel of viewers that score everyone that makes a speach on the floor as to the level of ridiculous they rank. Highest score wins a clown costume.

How about an add-on for live action participation? Every time the speaker repeats a known falsehood, they have to take a shot of tequila?

Great. Armed thugs are trying to smash their way in. Shots fired. Police in assault gear behind the barricades with guns at the ready to repel the assault.

Yeah - on television.

Trump incited these rioters to storm the Capitol building. The latest step in his attempted coup. If they had the courage, Pence and the cabinet should remove Trump immediately before he causes more destruction.

I stopped watching at the second debate splitting the Congress. I want the names of the 6 Senators who voted in favor of the first objection.

Happy to see the other objections couldnt get a Senator to sign off. The 55 assclowns in the House who signed one of those need to be ashamed of themselves. It basically read "I'm taking my ball and going home."

The Senators were:

Sen. Ted Cruz
Sen. Josh Hawley
Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith
Sen. Roger Marshall
Sen. John Kennedy
Sen. Tommy Tuberville

Hawley also objected to Pennsylvania and 7 Senators voted in favor of the objection

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz
Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley
Wyoming Sen. Cynthia Lummis
Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall
Florida Sen. Rick Scott
Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville
Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith

Every single Senator, every single Congressperson who voted to uphold any of the objections should be voted out of office the next time they are up for election. They too played a part in this attempted coup.

Security in the form of ARMED National Guard and HLS fully mobilized. I am sure the supercomputers in Langley are going crazy analyzing the electronic chatter as they assimilate the gift a hacker gave the FBI of the entirety of the Parler site downloaded just before it went down.

No doubt they will be prepared but can the same be said for the 50 state capitols?

According to HLS, FBI and National Guard interviews, every state capitol should be heavily protected. I expect the number of arrests we'll see all over the country of the Trumpist leadership that Parler's massive security blunder will help facilitate.
