  1. Nothing.... The gunman was confronted by school police and exchanged fire before entering the school. The gunman went inside and killed 21 people so far. The school police were shot and unable to stop the massacre.
  2. To clarify, the 45 senators voted to hear the objection that the trial shouldn't happen. They didn't vote that it shouldn't happen
  3. Look on the bright side, Rudy's not likely to get a pardon now
  4. Regardless of how I feel about Pence, I'm glad it didn't happen. Don't forget that the electoral votes were in the Senate chamber and were grabbed by pages. Can you imagine the constitutional crisis if the insurrectionists burned those votes? Sure they could be replaced, but how long would that take?
  5. I believe he was charged in federal court yesterday for his involvement in the riot
  6. From what I have read, Virginia NG has a standing mutual aid contract to provide support to DC in times of crisis, whereas Maryland did not have the same support contract in place. As I understand it, Virginia NG did in fact provide support, but only after Pence and Pelosi personally activated them. Members of Congress tried to activate Maryland NG but were stymied by lack of contract and Sec of Def denying support. DC NG which was on scene during the insurrection was not allowed to interact with protestors nor deploy the quick response force due to Secretary of Defense restrictions
  7. she lifted herself up and was going through the broken window of the door. Are you arguing that the officer had to wait another second for her to be completely through the door before deadly force is allowed? Was it needless? Of course, it was. She put herself in that position by her actions by storming the Capitol
  8. wow...... she's part of a mob who just broke down a door and she is personally trying to gain entry into a secured area, but she's not culpable for her actions
  9. Yeah.... she looks like she's innocent in this video trying to break into the House inner chamber..
  10. Nixon was pardoned and wasn't even indicted
  11. Also to be noted that the DC National Guard were controlled by Trump. They were given explicit instructions not to be provided live ammo or riot gear, would not be used to interacti with rioters except in self defense, and could not share equipment with Capitol Police unless specifically approved by the Defense Secretary.. Also, their "quick deploy force" could not be used except as a last resort. Lastly, it was Pence and Pelosi that finally got the NG activated, not Trump
  12. What if Pres has 16 letters of "you're fired" made ahead of time, submits his rebuttal , then hands the letters to his cabinet. Is that second letter still valid if the Cabinet is no longer?
  13. How is this clear? he shall resume the powers and duties of his office -->unless <--- the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President It does not say until
  14. My edit took out the part I was quoting So the process is more like Jakee outlines which was the point I was trying to make. And since this has never been done before, there is also some ambiguity over who is in charge during the 4 days the cabinet is trying to overrule the president
  15. Only if Trump doesn't appeal
  16. If you're on the side of invoking the 25th, would you resign before the term is up creating more chaos , or would you stick around and be a guiding influence? MY opinion is if Chao is resigning now in protest of yesterday, she knows the 25th is off the table Besides, the 25th isn't a one step process. Trump can appeal the decision. The cabinet needs to vote again before Pence takes the reins
  17. It looks like invoking the 25th is off the table. Secretary Chao resigning
  18. There are reports of shots fired inside the Capitol.....

    So someone created a website to promote Trump's Covid Plan
  20. How's that wall coming along?
  21. protests in my town... Same ... .distance and masks... and yes, I was there
  22. Lots of misleading information and outright lies in this For example, CA tax rate of 13.3% only applies to people making over 1million per year. As others have noted, some states (FL and GA are purposely misrepresenting Covid case and death #'s The graphic also does not take into account Tx 45b pension debt, nor does it take into account that FL and TX receive a disproportionate share of federal aid Think there's a reason Gov Abbot deleted his retweet of this? Hmmmmmm........

    My anecdotal evidence is similar to Wendy's. My step daughter and her fiance got really sick in March. Her Dr said it sounded like the flu and to self quarantine to be safe. After a week of being sick, she was tested for Covid 19 and got her positive results back more than 2 weeks after she recovered. Her fiance was never tested

    I think you're reading that data wrong. It's in fact saying that Ohio would need to perform more than 14k tests daily to come up to the baseline testing recommended by the Fed in order to open by 5/1
  25. NorCal bay area sheltered in place on March 16th (my birthday) My work switched from "work from if you can" to "you must work from home" on 3/10..
