Breaking news --coup in Burma--Daw Aung San Suu Kyi detained.


This is all I know, --from NYT.

Terrible feeling of deja vu.  This is the only way it could end--9 years, 2012-2021 of fake or facade democracy.

Of course feel free to share.

I wonder if those who jumped the fence feel it was worth it.

I'm glad I focused on fiction and visual arts and my health since 2012.

Now the dead in the water "Burmese democracy movement overseas" will find it hard to activate on Daw Suu's behalf.

Death, old age and attrition have decimated its ranks, and will be much harder now to pull ourselves up by our white hair.

And some may not want to or be able to.

Congressman tested positive for Covid, even though he completed vaccination both shots

 


I hope it's a false +ive.

It just shows, being vaccinated does not mean everyone is wholey protected--he must be in the 10% or so--

when they say "over 90% efficacy."

I would just put masks in my "fashion" wardrobe from now on, and also social distance, wh I do anyway.

Americans are very spoiled--here's the Virus telling us to "suck it up."

Capitol Police officer who died due to Jan 6 riots to lie in state in Capitol Rotunda--

This is the least that can be done for him--he died of injuries from being hit on the head with a fire extinguisher.

 

The rioters and Instigator in Chief musts be held accountable.

 

Officer Brian Sicknick will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

GOP leadership has targeted Liz Cheney for removal from Congress for voting against Trump, not Marjorie Taylor Greene for threatening the lives of Speaker Pelosi, 4 WOC Congresswomen, trying daily to bring a gun onto the House floor and spewing racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric.

A teacher of mine once told me one of the most obvious signs of a cult is if they aren't able to show respect to members who dissent. Like how are Liz Cheney or Senator McCain's wife or Mitt Romney doing?

I was born + raised in a cult and was lucky to have escaped. All cults - religious, political, and otherwise - are dangerous. There is an inability to see reality coupled with an unwarranted sense of superiority. It is exactly like living in Orwell’s 1984. The GOP is a cult.

Article of Impeachment (2nd) delivered --to Senate Floor.


I just love it when the folks in black walk across that Hall.

There have only been 4 impeachments in US history, and of those 2 are--guess who?


Three United States presidents have been impeached, although none were convicted: Andrew Johnson in 1868, Bill Clinton in 1998, and Donald Trump in 2019 and 2021. Trump is the only president (and only federal officeholder) to be impeached twice. 1 Democrat and 2 Republicans have been impeached in the US. Richard Nixon resigned as a result of the Watergate Scandal in 1974, after the House Judiciary Committee passed articles of impeachment.

MD. Rep Jamie Raskin, who lost his son to suicide on New Year's Eve said,

"I lost my son in 2020.  I am not going to lose my Republic in 2021.  It is not going to happen."

In other news, Champ and Major Biden, German Shepherds, have joined the President and the First Lady in the WH.

They can be heard barking outside during the President's press conference.

President Biden has removed transgender ban from US Military.

In interviews this week, Lindell said Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl's, H-E-B and Wayfair are all dropping MyPillow. "They're trying to cancel me out," Lindell told the Right Side Broadcasting Network's Brian Glenn in a lengthy interview on Monday.

 

After all, anyone can make pillows.

Too gossipy not to post--


Javanka wld not let Secret Service use their bathrooms to take a leak.

S.Service had to rent a basement apartment in Kalorama for nature's call,or go to Obamas' or Pences'.

Apartment is $3000 a month.

I am quite familiar with Kalorama bc both Burmese Embassy, and Military Attache are there, and that is where they harassed us abt our passports before 1988.

Later, went to demonstrations regularly --once PM in Exile's wife arrested for crossing the street and posting something on Bur Emb front door, another time someone smashed the windscreen of a dissident's car, wh he parked in their driveway.  Most times they videotaped from top floor from behind a curtain.

I told young people not to go into Burmese embassy to go to toilet.

Also old Textile Museum, now owned by Jeff Bezos, was there.

Once my friend and I were walking around in cold and dark looking for her car,and  I had to use bur emb as land mark, imagine that.

Foundry Gallery and Dupont Circle are also close to there.

Then the RFA lawyer who was murdered in a sex game on Dupont Circle. And Chandra Levy who disappeared there.

--so well, I don't go there or anywhere now.  Also Spanish Steps near Textile Museum where Free Burma had another demonstration.

BTW Secret Service also has had to rent golf carts at all Trump properties and an apt in TrumpTower.

Really shitty family.
