1 – House Plans Trump Impeachment Vote for Wednesday
The Wall Street Journal reports: Congress careened toward a fresh showdown with President Trump, as House Democrats said they plan to vote on impeaching him Wednesday over accusations he incited supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol.

House Democrats introduced an article of impeachment on Monday morning and said they would move ahead regardless of tepid Republican support.

Democrats, who have unsuccessfully pressed Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office, are expected to have enough votes to impeach in the House, which requires only a simple majority. A two-thirds supermajority in the Senate would then be required to convict Mr. Trump. The single article of impeachment alleges “incitement of insurrection.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) has said there would be no time for a trial and vote before Inauguration Day, with the Senate not set to return until Jan. 19. But incoming leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) is exploring using a little-used emergency tool to call the Senate back sooner if needed, a Senate Democratic aide said. Mr. McConnell would need to agree.

Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin said Monday night, “I think this is so ill-advised for Joe Biden to be coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people when we’re going to be so divided and fighting again.”

DML: Dems… the part of “unity.”  I don’t think so.

2 – Biden CIA pick led secret ‘back channel’ negotiations for Iran deal
The Washington Examiner reports: Joe Biden’s pick for CIA director led the secretive “back channel” with the Iranian regime during the lead up to the Iran nuclear deal, signaling the former vice president’s continued commitment to rejoining the controversial deal that the Trump administration left in 2018.

William Burns, the president of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace, served as the U.S. ambassador to Jordan and to Russia, also working in a number of other key State Department posts, including deputy secretary of state from 2011 to 2014. A 2019 book by Burns, The Back Channel: A Memoir of American Diplomacy and the Case for Its Renewal, contained an entire chapter on “Iran and the Bomb: The Secret Talks.”

The diplomat recounted President Barack Obama’s early efforts at outreach to Iran but admitted that “this halting momentum … came to an abrupt stop when the Iranian presidential elections in June turned into a bloodbath” as the Iranian regime suppressed Iran’s Green Movement opposition in 2009. He admitted that “the White House’s public response was initially tepid” and that “in hindsight, we should have … been sharper in our public criticism from the start.”

DML: Corruption and collusion!

3 – Facebook tells employees not to wear company shirts in public
The Hill reports: Facebook on Monday issued a warning to employees urging them to avoid wearing company t-shirts and other branded products in public after the social media platform suspended President Trump’s account late last week in the wake of deadly rioting at the U.S. Capitol.

“In light of recent events, and to err on the side of caution, global security is encouraging everyone to avoid wearing or carrying Facebook-branded items at this time,” Facebook told employees in an internal memo obtained by The Information, a technology news site.

The Information reported that the social media company’s security team posted the memo to an internal workplace board accessible by more than 56,600 employees.

DML: If they had any integrity, they’d resign from that company!

4 – Paypal says it blocked Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo
Fox Business reports: PayPal Holdings Inc said on Monday it has blocked the Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo after it helped raise funds for people who attended last week’s event in Washington when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol.

The digital payments processor also confirmed to Reuters that it closed an account held by Ali Alexander, one of the organizers of the gathering. The news was reported earlier by Bloomberg, which cited an unnamed source.

Representatives of GiveSendGo, which describes itself as “A place to fund hope. A place to work together with the body of Christ around the world to make a difference,” could not be reached immediately for comment.

DML: More censorship on conservatives and Christians!

5 – Democratic Socialists of America, Dozens Of Teachers Unions To Host ‘Day Of Resistance’
The Daily Caller reports: The Democratic Socialists of America, Sunrise Movement and more than a dozen teachers’ unions will host a “day of resistance” to demand safety and equity in U.S. schools.

The coalition, called Demand Safe Schools, is comprised of progressive organizations such as the Democratic Socialists of America, Sunrise Movement, Action Now Institute and the Center for Popular Democracy as well as at least 13 teachers unions. The coalition will host events in more than 25 different locations around the country Tuesday as part of its “day of resistance.”

“We are a national collective of students, parents, educators, and community members for the safe and equitable reopening of schools,” the coalition said in a statement.

But, the coalition’s demands go beyond school-related measures despite its name. The coalition also wants police free schools, rent cancelation, unemployment benefits “for all” and a halt on budget cuts in all states and municipalities.

Teachers unions from Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Denver, Oakland and Milwaukee all signed onto the “day of resistance,” according to the coalition.

DML: There you have it – the Democrat Socialists and the Teachers Unions are teaming up. we’ve got a big problem, folks.

  1. If you are planning on moving to Florida, but haven’t decided where yet, please consider Panama City Beach in the panhandle. It’s a wonderful place to live, with beautiful beaches, friendly people, and we even have a Trump store!
    You’d fit right in, and I’m sure you would be welcomed everywhere.

  2. Our country has gotten even more CORRUPT! This MUST be stopped! We can only hit where it hurts most…the financial side. We MUST stop connections with the institutions that want to dictate how we must communicate, shop, bank, work, school, etc! Those organizations MUST feel the pain of trying to silence 80 million Americans!!!

    • Totally agree! I did not do 20 years in the Army in order to fight and protect our country against socialism, dictators, etc. and had friends die all to come to the unfruitful outcome of socialism. This is outrageous and a sad day in the United States of America. I hope we can survive the next 2 years. Then if os, the Dems will loose all but the presidency. Lets hope and pray it is so!

  5. Is there a safe alternative to paypal?

    I’d be willing to switch. I’m disappointed they chose to throw out the Christian group. Too bad they’re one of the virtue signaling, group thinking segment of society.
