    “A good time to re-up this excellent study of how the 14th Amendment’s Disqualification Clause can be enforced under existing laws, now that the Jan 6 Committee has made its criminal referrals for the violent insurrection and the attempted coup:”

      Roadmap to Accountability: How the Jan. 6 Committee Can Help Enforce the 14th Amendment

      “The constitutional bar to insurrectionists holding public office
      The January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election led to the first application of the “disqualification from public office” provision of the U.S. Constitution in more than a century. Earlier this year, in a case brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and others, a New Mexico court disqualified a county official from holding office based on his role in trespassing at the Capitol, and for participating in the “surrounding planning, mobilization, and incitement” which caused the insurrection. (The case is on appeal.) The disqualification clause contained in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment provides that public office holders who have taken an oath to support the U.S. Constitution and then engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or who give aid or comfort to enemies of the United States, are barred from serving ever again in public office.

      In this essay and an accompanying report, we build on the established collective understanding to analyze contemporary enforcement of the disqualification clause. Our analysis describes how the disqualification clause can currently be enforced.”

    “So, this is what happens when neither party controls the chair. Usually the majority would hold the vote open until they had the votes, but the clerk is, appropriately, just rolling through.

    The “anti-swamp” rebels simply wanted their DC-based super pac to get a deal with another super pac.

    The role of CLF in shaping primaries has been overstated by both sides here

    Kevin McCarthy’s Hat Trick of Humiliation
    Special Edition

    Charlie Sykes

    “You’re supposed to throw the grenade after you pull the pin. They pulled the pin and passed the grenade around!” —James Carville

    Historians should note that the party that lost control of the House brought popcorn to the ceremony. The party that “won” blew itself up. And then did it again. And again. And then left for a night of pizza, bitterness, and recriminations. Meanwhile, the MAGA crackup accelerated as crackpots fought with nihilists, wingnuts pointed fingers at extremists, and grifters started slap-fights with one another.

    ABBOTT ELEMENTARY Season 2 Episode 11 Photos Read-A-Thon –

    The competition heats up between Melissa and Janine as their classrooms go head-to-head in a read-a-thon sponsored by a local pizza shop. Both teachers encourage their students to hit the books hard but face some unexpected obstacles on their path to pizza glory.

    A workplace comedy following a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal —as they navigate the Philadelphia public school system.

    Leopards Eat Kevin McCarthy’s Face

    Michelle Goldberg

    “As we approach the anniversary of the Jan. 6 attack, it’s been grimly amusing to see that the party of insurrection can’t even manage the orderly transfer of power to itself. Rarely does karma play out so neatly.”

    Cornell Belcher on ReidOut:

    “Call them rebels? They’re not rebels, they are Insurrectionists…this is the continuation of the Insurrection that I would argue started before Jan 6, and we did not put down on Jan 6.”

  27. January 5, 2023 at 2:01 pm

    “Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) pointed out that if Democrats took a shot every time Kevin McCarthy lost a Republican vote, they’d all be unconscious by now.”

    Josh Chafetz: “The parliamentarians know this stuff cold.”

    On First Day Back in Power, Republicans Remove Metal Detectors Placed in House Chambers After Capitol Riots

    Several Republicans have criticized the metal detectors since they were first erected in 2021

    “Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert, who has been open about her intent to carry a concealed weapon in the Capitol building, told reporters she had been “waiting for this day for a long time.” “I think [the metal detectors] need to be removed from the Capitol, filled with Tannerite and blown up,” she added.

        To the Capitol Police watching this infantile gun entitlement travesty take place in 2022, forgive us, please forgive us.

        Blessings to all who were hurt, are still hurt, those who died during the violent Insurrection, and their families.

  30. January 6, 2023 at 12:14 pm


    “A year ago today, a violent insurrection took place in the citadel of our democracy, the United States Capitol. Incited by the former disgraced, twice-impeached president of the United States of America, the assault that took place was an attack on the Capitol, the Congress, the Constitution and the country. We will never forget the events of that fateful day, which were designed to undermine the peaceful transfer of power, keep Donald Trump in office and take down the United States government.

    More than 150 law enforcement officers were seriously injured, brutalized and attacked in addition to those who gave their lives protecting this institution. Countless Members, staff, police officers and reporters endured serious mental trauma that still looms large. Our democratic process itself was attacked, and instead of strengthening our institution with legislative guardrails, those on the other side continue to provide aid and comfort to the Big Lie, choosing autocracy over democracy.

    House Democrats remain focused on defending the Constitution and the rule of law. Through the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, we hope to get to the whole truth and nothing but the truth with respect to the events of that day and ( how we can prevent a violent insurrection from ever happening again. One year later, we must continue to hold those who inflamed, encouraged and participated in the insurrection accountable because no one is above the law. That is the American way.”

    House Minority Leader Jeffries Marks January 6 Anniversary
    One Republican, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), joined House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) and other Democrats to mark the second anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, from the East Front steps of the building. Others in attendance included former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the House chaplain. Family members of slain Capitol police officers read their names before a 140 second moment of silence was taken to represent 140 officers impacted by the events on January 6, 2021.

    Biden signs law to help preserve Japanese American WWII incarceration camps
    By Kimmy Yam
    A new law signed by President Joe Biden on Wednesday will help memorialize the history of the U.S. government’s incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.

    The legislation, spearheaded by Rep. Doris Matsui, D-Calif., and Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, would reauthorize funds that help preserve the sites in which tens of thousands of Japanese Americans were detained, including Manzanar in California and Rohwer in Arkansas.
