We are this many days away until President-Elect Biden becomes President of the United States.
With Twitter finally bowing to consumer pressure and banning the Twitter account of What Fresh Hell is This?, star, President Impeached, I find myself in a bit of scramble to find something worth while to feature daily as the afternoon Blender thread.
So for What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 67, I’ve decided to wing-it…
We first journey to the what’s new under the Impeachment front.
CNN is reporting that as of 11 a.m. D.C., time, the Democrats have formally unveiled their resolution to once again impeach the 45th President of the United States, Dipshit Trump, for “incitement of insurrection.”
According to the article announcing the 11 a.m. D.C., time unveiling, this will be a single article of impeachment, but does make reference to his January 2nd, 2021, call with the Georgia Secretary of State where he told Republican Brad Raffensperger “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”
While many might feel, as I do, that President Impeached has committed many-many-many Impeachable offenses, we should never forget, that he encouraged his supporters to attempt to overthrow the government, installing him as President for a second-term even though he lost the election. This encouragement was based on lies. Not half-truths, and misleading statements, but outright lies, that he had won the 2020 Presidential Election, and that the Democrats cheated.
While, we might be angry, livid even, upset, disappointed really, that all his Impeachable Offenses aren’t listed, highlighting and focusing on the most outrageous, in my opinion, is not something we should dismiss as a waste of time.
Five people died that day, our Congress was in lock-down for hours, and the Capitol was overrun for the first and only time since the Revolution. All of this happened as a direct result of President Impeached Hopefully Twice and Barred from Public Office for the Rest of his Life, lies. For two months he lied, called the election, “RIGGED”, said that elected officials both Democrats and Republicans worked against him, to cheat for President-Elect Biden. All of his delusional attempts to remain President after he lost a free and fair election resulted in supporters of his, attempting to over throw our U.S. Government.
Our journey continues this time to election lawsuit news.
On Monday the Supreme Court denied, what appears to be if I’m reading the order (pg.3) correctly, six requests to expedite President Loser and his Loser Allies election related matters.
This is not surprising news, the election challenges are now moot, however, I lol’d, when I read it this morning.
We now travel to the President-Elect Joe Biden transition news.
On Monday President-Elect Biden announced his intent to nominate career diplomat Ambassador William Burns as our next CIA Director.
From his bio posted @ buildbackbetter.gov:
We now circle back to insurrection news.
AP News reported that “The Army is investigating a psychological operations officer who led a group of people from North Carolina to the rally in Washington that led up to the deadly riot in the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump. Commanders at Fort Bragg are reviewing Capt. Emily Rainey’s involvement in last week’s events in the nation’s capital, but she said she acted within military regulations and that no one in her group broke the law.”
On Sunday she told the Associated Press that she was a private citizen “doing everything right,” and within her rights. She told the AP that she led “100 members of Moore County Citizens for Freedom, which describes itself online as a nonpartisan network promoting conservative values, to the Washington rally to “stand against election fraud” and support Trump. She said she didn’t know of anyone who entered the Capitol and that they were headed back to their buses hours before an emergency curfew took effect.”
David Begnaud with CBS News reported this morning, that Rainey has resigned her commission.
We continue our journey focused on insurrection…
On Monday First Lady Melania Trump offered us her thoughts on what took place at the Capitol on Wednesday.
Melania Trump aka Selfish-Bitch con’t: salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.
Hypocrites gonna hypocrite I guess….geez, lady, read the room…
Our journey comes to a close back where it started at the 11:00 a.m. D.C., time House of Representatives meeting.
In a pro-forma session the House accepted the resignation of the Sergeant of Arms, Paul Irving, introduced a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, and adjourned until Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. D.C., time.
Republicans blocked the resolution calling on VP Pence to do the right thing, and remove the Unstable Toad from office, forcing a vote on the resolution.
CNN updated the early morning story saying that the House has now formally introduced their resolution to impeach President Impeached.
HOYER and CICILLINE say a Wednesday vote is possible — though it may not be a done deal. Hoyer, Cicilline and Schiff said articles should go immediately to the Senate, no delay as discussed by some in leadership.https://t.co/EGFr2Ng2Jr— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) January 11, 2021
