Will Rep. Dave Eastman survive "disloyalty" charge?

The Oathkeeper who did not participate in Jan 6 is on trial because the Oathkeepers are domestic terrorists. AK has a law preventing a person from holding office if they are a member of an organization that promotes overthrowing or tries to overthrow the government.

Unfortunately, I bet he will survive this nonjury trial. According to the article he easily won re-election so obviously his constituency doesn’t care. If it is up to just one judge, it is likely the judge won’t take his office away. We will see.

Pelosi In The House

I watched this HBO documentary last night. Recommend.

Alexandera Pelosi filmed (over 3 decades), produced and directed this “in the life of” story of the first woman speaker of the house AND the first person to be re-elected to the position after losing control in midterm elections.

Personally, I had mixed emotions. It made me feel so proud for her …and it triggered my tRump PTSD.

I am proud of her accomplishments and her will to do the work of the people and super proud of her love for children. I am so glad she was in this position during the tRump debacle admin.

Idiocracy averted?

For now?

Really, I thought tRump was the tip of the iceberg.
But Herschel Walker as a candidate for US Senate is preposterous! Yet, he was. And the people of GA hopefully have taken us a step in the right direction.
Thanks to all those in GA that voted.

Or else…. A tiny reminder…
