      Trump and DOJ lawyers said to have plotted to oust acting AG. And go over turn GA election…. seems like this should be evidence in his impeachment trial.

      Get his ass! He is a total kiss ass suck up to the rethugs. Have you seen some of the footage of him at the hate rally’s? Too stupid to realize that these same people despise him and will turn on him when he is no longer of use. Furthermore, he is as subject to violence by white cops and others as any other Black person. As Jemele Hill feared, there are too many Black men who care more about trying to be part of the patriarchy than they are about true equal rights for all. The misogyny that had some of them voting for -45 and hating on Kamala is sad and infuriating.

      Wow – didn’t realize (lifelong member of Athletics Anonymous) that Hank Aaron had a number 44 jersey. Now where have we seen that number before?

      The only real way to reverse minority rule is through big structural reforms like abolishing the Electoral College, eliminating the filibuster, ending partisan gerrymandering, enshrining a fundamental right to vote in the Constitution, and giving statehood to Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico so as to make the Senate more reflective of the country. But that won’t happen without bipartisan support—and in some cases a constitutional convention. And Republicans have little incentive to adopt these reforms when they can consistently hold power without winning a majority of votes or appealing to a majority of Americans. Until democracy breaks them, they’ll continue to break democracy.

      I know I have to stop saying I am surprised or astounded etc etc etc … but I really am. Sheila, sadly I don’t think this would be the last.

      Is the attempt to overthrow the government not a crime serious enough that it does not warrant time in prison? Even while waiting for their trial? These ppl were picked up in the first place because they were seen there!

        The white power movement has always been from the top down. The rubes you see on the streets are the tools of the people who have the most power in our society. Believe Black people when they tell you how racist this country and its people and institutions have always been. If nothing else, the results of the last election and the people who supported and bankrolled the insurrection should tell everyone all that they need to know. The Black vote is a threat to white power and that is why we have all of the assaults against it.

      In other places like Ohio and Wisconsin, they are mishandling doses that have to be thrown out and that mofo Desantis has told people that one shot will do it and now you have many elderly who refuse to take the second one, it is hard to get the second one even if you want it. I am waiting until the vaccine is available at CVS or my doctor’s office where they already have the facilities and the knowledgeable staff to administer it. However, as we se it is health professionals like this doctor and the hospital pharmacist in Wisconsin who are doing all of these shady things. We also know that there are many racists in the medical profession who are very willing to do harm to Black people and the result of all of this is the very understandable reluctance that some have in taking the vaccine. The very fact that the virus is more deadly to Black and Brown people causes many to feel that so many white people are happy about this and will not go out of their way to save their lives. These was more trust for the polio vaccine for instance, because it affected everyone equally from a wealthy president to the poorest of the poor.

    “Trump and Justice Dept. Lawyer Said to Have Plotted to Oust Acting Attorney General”
    “Trying to find another avenue to push his baseless election claims, Donald Trump considered installing a loyalist.

    The Justice Department’s top leaders listened in stunned silence this month: One of their peers, they were told, had devised a plan with President Donald J. Trump to oust Jeffrey A. Rosen as acting attorney general and wield the department’s power to force Georgia state lawmakers to overturn its presidential election results.

    The unassuming lawyer who worked on the plan, Jeffrey Clark, had been devising ways to cast doubt on the election results and to bolster Mr. Trump’s continuing legal battles and the pressure on Georgia politicians. Because Mr. Rosen had refused the president’s entreaties to carry out those plans, Mr. Trump was about to decide whether to fire Mr. Rosen and replace him with Mr. Clark.

    The department officials, convened on a conference call, then asked each other: What will you do if Mr. Rosen is dismissed? The answer was unanimous.
    They would resign.”

      Vote To Convict. Send a message.
      Or is it OK to get assassinated going forward at (any) Capitol?
      Trump has the mental acuity of a blancmange, but the next one won’t.
      Thing is GOP officials Want the confederacy, they Want autocracy, and are setting the stage…
      When you see how much want a national autocratic government, hey, it all makes sense.
