"Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at Noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning."

NAMES. NOW.

HA HA!
We all know Boebert is one of them, two reps calling her out as hosting tours which she swears was just family.
I really don't like her.

I will refer back to that list the other day/yesterday. 

These people will be found. If they are asking for a pardon, those part of the process in the WH need to report them, or have misprision of a felony thrown at them.

I am just glad that we seem to be taking this threat seriously finally. I can't believe how stupid it had to get, but I guess we had to let them show just how shiatty a traitor they all are. 
God what a stupid uprising.


Will we? Schumer is already buddying up with McConnell 'all is forgiven, just politics'.

the_innkeeper: If you cannot fully test your gimbal on the ground, you have unsatisfied requirements.


You installed the giant vacuum chamber that slowly lowers ambient pressure from sea level to vacuum, while simultaneously dealing with the exhaust. What, you can't? Then you can't test the flight profile of the engines on a test stand.

This isn't software. There's always untested realms until they fly the bird.

You could make a larger test stand, but that costs money. You know what you call a launcher when it runs out of money?

Grounded.

These would be the guys who actually spoke at the rally, like Mo Brooks.

JulieAzel626: Jim Acosta:

WH has sent out excerpts from Trump's video address which will be released at 4p. In the excerpts Trump says: "This week, we inaugurate a new Administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous."


More from Jim Acosta:

Trump does not take responsibility for siege at Capitol and does not admit he lost according to the excerpts released thus far.

Still too early to tell, but a lot of people made a lot of very provable felonious mistakes.

I think I finally see his end game: "all these criminal charges against me from the Biden administration should be dismissed because Joe didn't legitimately win the election."

Trump has never taken responsibility for a bad outcome in his entire life. How have people not figured this out yet?

Also, nearly every success he takes credit for is someone elses, because he doesn't actually know anything or do anything.

Facebook has no plan in place to lift the indefinite suspension on President Trump's Facebook account following his departure from the White House on Wednesday, sources familiar with the company's plans say. https://t.co/6C55UnR1S9 - @DylanByers

That's a REALLY bad argument on a program that has NASA throwing buckets of money at it.

There's a difference between having known untested realms, and overly constraining your test scenarios. You usually test above the limits to give you margin on flight, and abort if you breach those. I get that you do not want to come close to "damage to hardware" levels, but... those points should not be reachable in a ground test, anyway. 

This doesn't smell right.

And yes, engine test vacuum chambers exhist:

Money was happy when the shackles were off. Money is happy the adults are back, and bailouts are coming.

Actually, it is a shame since they actually called the AZ results correctly, despite the BS that the Trump supporters wanted to push.

They willingly went to work for a propaganda arm of the GOP?

Yeah, they should probably be unemployable. That entire org should be a black mark telling people to shred their resumes.

Beau of the Fifth Column had the most accurate take on this I've seen.

Yes, they want things to get back to normal.  But to them, normal means not holding each other accountable and not really giving a f*ck about the average person.

And he's right about another thing: if the Democrats don't maintain momentum in the next year, and decide to not have real consequences for all of this "silly insurrectionist balderdash", then they're f*cked again in 2022.
