The actions of the trumpists at the U.S. Capitol one year ago should never be whitewashed.

The slow drip of Trump investigation news continued today with the report that New York Attorney General Letitia James has subpoenaed Donald Junior and Ivanka as part of the fraud investigation into the Trump Organization. That led me to post a poll on Twitter that I've asked earlier.
POLL: Who will be the first member of the #TrumpCrimeFamily to fly to a nation without a U.S. extradition treaty?— True Blue Liberal (@TrueBlueLiberal) January 3, 2022
Because we all know that the cowardly crime family members would rather live on a Trump-branded golf course in Dubai than in a jail cell in upstate New York, don't we?

The World Is Too Much With Us
William WordsworthAnd if you're looking for books to read (and who isn't), I'd wholeheartedly recommend a book from Jonathan Bate that published in time for Wordsworth's 250th birthday last year, Radical Wordsworth: The Poet Who Changed the World. Or, even better, the beautiful illustrated and annotated edition of Wordsworth's masterpiece, The Prelude, published by David R. Godine in 2016.

Yesterday the news broke that G. Gordon Liddy died at the age of 90. Liddy was one of the organizers of the original Watergate burglary that eventually led to the downfall of Richard Nixon and he remained totally unrepentant about his actions.
Liddy's return to the news brings up the obvious question. Who was the G. Gordon Liddy for the #StupidWatergate(s) of the twice-impeached ex-president now hiding out at Mar-a-Lago?

This is taken, of course, from the 1611 King James Version, known here at trueblueliberal.org as "The Real Bible For Real Christians."
More video of the overstuffed golden calfe of 2021:
Here's your reminder that the object of abject veneration at #QPAC 2021 (or maybe it's #CPAQ) refused their invitation in 2016 and held his own rally because he was mad at #CPAC 2016's star and favorite presidential candidate, "L-Y-E-N" Ted Cruz.
"You have lyin' Ted Cruz.
I call him.
I nicknamed him -- lyin'.
I say ly - in'.
How would you spell that?
L - Y - E - N.
With a big [making double airquotes with stubby fingers while pausing to search for the big word] apostrophe."

I hope President Joe Biden's first remarks as President of the United States [in an hour from now] nod toward the speech of President Gerald Ford delivered on August 9, 1974:
"My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. Our Constitution works; our great Republic is a government of laws and not of men. Here the people rule."

Where will the evicted @WhiteHouse resident be at 12 noon on January 20th?
Within forty minutes of posting my poll, the #SoreLoserInChief emerged from a temporary Twitter timeout and eliminated the first choice, which was, of course, no surprise:
....and another UPDATE, at 7:45pm on January 8th:
The @realDonaldTrump Twitter account has finally been suspended:

After yesterday's MAGAt invasion of the U.S. Capitol, it's hard to imagine you-know-who squatting in the White House for two more weeks. Who do you think should remove him. Congress? The Vice President and Cabinet? Father Time?
POLL:— True Blue Liberal (@TrueBlueLiberal) January 7, 2021
If you could choose your preferred method to remove the orange stain from the @WhiteHouse, would you want Congress to #ImpeachAndRemove, Pence & Friends to use the #25thAmendment, or simply wait two weeks for President Biden's inauguration?
