People who have lived here since before 9-11 refer to DC as a 'fortress'. But I was surprised when I moved here at how open everything is. You can walk up the Capital or Supreme Court steps. Normally you will not see armed officers in the downtown area. Federal buildings all have a few Capital Police in their lobbies. But it's not like a lot of countries I have visited that have soldiers carrying machine guns in the capital. Places like Peru, Israel, etc. that have all dealt with terrorist insurgents have much more visible security than Washington DC does. The one noticeable security measure that i see everywhere is barriers to keep cars from driving up or into federal buildings.

I live across the street from the State Department, which takes up about a full city block. Next to that is the old Naval Observatory, which I think is used as some kind of Navy office now. Those buildings have armed officers at the drives that go into or next to the buildings. But it's only a couple of guards. There is actually a State Department annex office that is part of my apartment building, and I have never seen troops or capital police here.

i have had it on all day. I keep putting it on mute, though. the parade of fascists is disgusting. Gaetz is a Nazi Monster

Just heard one of the republicans refer to rioters as "anarchists" which is more right wing propaganda. They were fascists. Fascists hate anarchists (and communists).. so they blame any type of violence on "anarchists"

Laypeople use the term "anarchism" not to refer to the political ideology of stateless, anti-hierarchical socialism, but rather more-or-less as a synonym for "chaos."

he is not a lay person. He is an ideologue and a trump sycophant who knows that it is a dog whistle for the fascist right wing. He chose that word very carefully

What happens now?
I was very surprised learning that impeaching a president didn't mean removing them from office in the US during the first go-round.

And does that mean Trump can no longer run again in the future?

It now moves to the Senate for a trial and eventual vote that requires a two-thirds majority to oust him, but that won't begin until the 19th and will have to overlap Biden's term.

There is some talk of only a simple majority being required to prevent him from future office, though, thank fuck. The 14th Amendment, apparently?

Mitch apparently supported Impeachment. Depending on McConnell to do the right thing is a fools errand though so I’ll believe it when I see it. It will be great if Trump is convicted and we don’t have to worry about him in 2024.

In the 4 years of Trump no lessons were learned by american liberals. They simply upped their performative allyship with no real substance behind it.
American liberals have u read this very prescient post by LaBelle yet

as someone living in DC with a platoon (literally) of armed soldiers surrounding my building, I think Biden is more than just lip service to my rights.
