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.”

Wednesday’s chaos led to calls for Cruz’s resignation from Texas Democrats. But Cruz says he “ain’t going anywhere.”

CNN: Angry Republican leaders float removing Trump from office. Rachel Maddow just mentioned this

Washington (CNN)After violent pro-Trump protesters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, a growing number of Republican leaders told CNN that they believe Donald Trump should be removed from office before January 20. Four of them called for the 25th Amendment to be invoked, and two others said the President should be impeached.

"He has to be impeached and removed," said one current Republican elected official.
A former senior official said the President's actions were egregious enough to remove him even with such a short time left in his tenure.
"I think this has been a huge shock to the system," said the former official. "How do you keep him in place for two weeks after this?"

Dumb question: Do the Congress members have anything to eat? Cori Bush said she & staff were hungry.

They're going to be there for a long night i'd imagine. They need nourishment.

CNN: Black Georgia voters' high turnout helped solidify a historic win, organizers say

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/06/politics/black-voter-turnout-georgia-senate-runoff/index.html

(CNN)Black Georgia voters showed up in droves for the state's pair of US Senate runoffs and voting rights groups say the high turnout plus aggressive organizing efforts helped solidify a historic win.

Rev. Raphael Warnock, the senior pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, was elected on Tuesday to be the first Black senator from Georgia, CNN projected early Wednesday morning. The control of the US Senate now comes down to Republican David Perdue, who is running to keep his seat against Democrat Jon Ossoff.
Warnock's win is a repudiation of Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and her adherence to President Donald Trump, who voting rights activists say has attempted to suppress Black voters by accusing majority-Black cities such as Atlanta of fraud in the general election after he lost to Biden.
Black-led voting groups spent the last six weeks knocking on millions of doors, registering voters, distributing mailers, hosting events and partnering with Atlanta hip-hop artists to expand their reach. Their efforts came as Atlanta was thrust into the national spotlight following Biden's victory that flipped Georgia blue after he won the state by more than 11,000 votes. In the days leading up to the Senate runoffs, Black women such as Stacey Abrams and LaTosha Brown once again emerged as the leading voices, appearing on social media, national television and bus tours to urge Black people to vote.

Alot more on the article. We owe so much to our Black brothers & sisters in GA. I also heard from Vota Latina spokesperson on MSNBC that its group signed up ~50% of the new voters in GA so many thanks to our Latino comrades as well. This is a historic day in so many ways!!

WOW - NYT journalist posted this: will Dems try to recruit Republican Senators to switch sides

If Ossoff also wins, will Dems try to recruit Republican Senators to switch sides and join a new majority party? There's precedent and it is now the Trump Republican Party, so some might be tempted.

Everyone's thoughts on the subject?

WaPo: Trump raises more than $150 million appealing to false election claims

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-raises-more-than-150-million-appealing-to-false-election-claims/2020/11/30/82e922e6-3347-11eb-afe6-e4dbee9689f8_story.html

President Trump’s political operation has raised more than $150 million since Election Day, using a blizzard of misleading appeals about the election to shatter fundraising records set during the campaign, according to people with knowledge of the contributions. The influx of political donations is one reason Trump and some allies are inclined to continue a legal onslaught and public affairs blitz focused on baseless claims of election fraud, even as their attempts have repeatedly failed in court and as key states continue to certify wins for President-elect Joe Biden.

Much of the money raised since the election is likely to go into an account for the president to use on political activities after he leaves office, while some of the contributions will go toward what’s left of the legal fight. The donations are purportedly being solicited for the Official Election Defense Fund, which is blazed in all red across the Trump campaign’s website, with an ominous picture of the president outside the White House.

There is no such account, however. The fundraising requests are being made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee that raises money for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee. As of Nov. 18, that committee also shares its funds with Save America, a new leadership PAC that Trump set up in early November and which he can use to fund his post-presidency activities.

The contributions, from thousands of grass-roots donors across the country, are split into several accounts, including the leadership PAC that is loosely regulated and could be used to personally benefit the president after he leaves the White House.
According to the fine print in the latest fundraising appeals, 75 percent of each contribution to the joint fundraising committee would first go toward the Save America leadership PAC and the rest would be shared with the party committee, to help with the party’s operating expenses. This effectively means that the vast majority of low-dollar donations under the current agreement would go toward financing the president’s new leadership PAC, instead of efforts to support the party or to finance voting lawsuits.
