RELEASE: The Texas Democratic Party Announces Partnership with Fair Fight Action to Build the Largest Voter Protection Program in Texas History

"Austin, TX — Today, the Texas Democratic Party announced the details of our new innovative Voter Protection program in partnership with Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action. The program will be the largest in Texas history and make it easier—not harder—for Texans to vote.

Texas Republicans have made it harder to vote at every turn, by implementing restrictive voting policies such as voter ID restrictions, shortening the days of early voting, closing polling locations, and attempting to purge lawful Texans from the voting rolls. Texas Democrats are already fighting back. In addition to filing three separate lawsuits fighting back against various Republican attempts to make it harder for Texans to vote, this month the Texas Democratic Party launched our voter assistance hotline 1-844-TX-VOTES.

Now, with the help of Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight Action, the Texas Democratic Party is taking our voter protection efforts even further. In partnership with Fair Fight Action, the Texas Democratic Party’s new, groundbreaking voter protection program will include:..."

More detail on the article. This was released on Jan 6 so not sure if this has already been posted.
Great news for Texan Dems nonetheless

The MAGA terrorists are directing their ire on everyone it seems.

Why, of course it would be Chef Andres to step up for our troops! He is an angel and Biden should award him some great award and have him head up some great relief effort during this covid period.



HuffPost: Feeling Betrayed, Far-Right Extremists Have A New Message For Trump: 'Get Out Of Our Way'

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-supporters-betrayed_n_60016777c5b62c0057bc11ab

In online havens for MAGA extremists, including Gab, CloutHub, MeWe, Telegram and far-right message boards such as 8kun, the tone toward Trump is shifting. HuffPost reviewed thousands of messages across these platforms and found that a growing minority of the president’s once-devout backers are now denouncing him and rejecting his recent pleas for peace. Some have called for his arrest or execution, labeling him a “traitor” and a “coward.” Alarmingly, many of those who are irate about Biden’s supposed electoral theft are still plotting to forcibly prevent him from taking office — with or without Trump’s help.
“We don’t follow you,” another Telegram user wrote, addressing Trump, after the president put out his video urging calm and order. “Be quiet and get out of our way.”

It has become apparent that now — after his mass radicalization campaign of voter-fraud disinformation and conspiracy-mongering — even Trump can’t stop the dangerous delusion he’s instilled across the country, or the next wave of violence it may soon bring...
It seems that even the Proud Boys are losing faith in Trump: A Telegram channel run by the group reposted a message with Trump’s video along with the text “The Betrayal of Trumpist base by Trump himself continues.”

Now that Trump himself appears to finally be backing away from his “Stop the Steal” hoax, a growing faction of his supporters is through with him, too.
With so much at stake and no sane hope of clinging to power, it’s now in the president’s best interest for his base to avoid further violence, which could increase his chances of conviction. But the reality is that the monster Trump created doesn’t need him anymore. “He can promise and call for peace all he likes,” one Gab user wrote. “Won’t make a blind bit of difference.”

Pelosi announces retired lieut general to lead review of 'security infrastructure' after attack

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/15/politics/lieutenant-general-russel-honore-capitol-security-review/index.html

(CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday announced that retired Lt. General Russel Honoré will lead a review of the "security infrastructure" of Capitol Hill, following a violent riot that left five people dead earlier this month.

"To protect our Democracy, we must now subject the security of the U.S. Capitol Complex to rigorous scrutiny," Pelosi said in a statement. "To that end, I have asked Lt. General Russel Honoré (Ret.), a respected leader with experience dealing with crises, to lead an immediate review of the Capitol's security infrastructure, interagency processes and procedures, and command and control."

Bravo Madam Speaker! Glad we now have General Honore to shore up the Capitol!

Photos show National Guard troops sleeping on Capitol floors ahead of impeachment vote

https://ktla.com/news/nationworld/photos-show-national-guard-troops-sleeping-on-marble-floors-of-capitol-ahead-of-impeachment-vote/

"Much of the online reaction questioned why the troops were not provided more comfortable sleeping arrangements."

In the least, why aren't our troops even provided some sleeping bags?
One of our sons is a Marine. It pains me to see pictures of our military having to sleep on the cold floors of the Capitol without even a blanket

Any protesters so far @the DC Capitol or state Capitols so far?

Starting this thread as i'm nervous as heck, but believe our leaders are in good hands w our National Guards and other authorities.

George Conway tweeted: "I think we have the 67 votes to convict now."

George Conway
@gtconway3d
"I think we have the 67 votes to convict now."

What does he know that we don't yet know? Who are the 17 GOP senators besides Ben Sasse & Lisa Murkowski willing to convict the SOB?

Anyone watching Biden's announcements going on? He just called Cruz & Hawley LIARS

He answered a reporter's question "Do you think they should resign?"
He said the voters should vote them out when their term is up. But he did say "It's a part of the Big Lie..if you say it often enough people will believe it".

That's equivalent to me of calling them LIARS. Thank you for speaking the truth, President Biden!

Houston Chronicle: 'Ted Cruz has got to go': Protests hit Houston after deadly Capitol riot

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/houston-protests-rallies-us-capitol-riot-trump-tx-15852806.php

Protests against President Donald Trump and Republicans are being organized Thursday in Houston following the deadly insurrection of the U.S. Capitol.

“Hey hey, go ho, Ted Cruz has got to go,” chanted a group of Houston activists around noon in front of the Leland Federal Building at 1919 Smith Street.

Around a dozen people gathered, some with signs that read, “Remove Traitors,” “25th Amendment” and “Trump lost, fascists get out.”
