My bad. I guess the paperwork is for her to run in 2024 when she will be 91.

Agreed, though age limits would hopefully extend to all public offices and hopefully the Supreme Court too.

Well I'd be in favor of extending term limits to the judiciary as well

Actually I recall thinking about this once upon a time. Age limits and longer term limits for the court, term limits for the house and senate.

One is fixed and the other is semi-variable.

Stories are starting to come out that we hadn't heard yet that point towards potential involvement of other members of Congress and, welp, we're in for a hell of a week folks.

Yeeeeeeeeeah, this is...disturbing on so many levels, to say the very least.

Every last person who was involved needs to be removed as soon as humanly possible and go straight to prison. I know charges that serious can lead to a pretty lengthy prison sentence as it is, which would be great, but I dunno, I'd be fine with going with full on life imprisonment at this point.

The Sammy Davis Jr lookalike rally organizer says it was Mo Brooks(the take down names kicking ass guy), Paul Gosar, and Andy Biggs.

Somehow I think Jim Jordan and Ted Cruz were involved too.

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert — who has vowed to carry her Glock across Washington, D.C., and was rebuked by the city’s police chief for saying so — caused a minor incident at a security stop at the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday night.

The Republican reportedly attempted to walk through newly installed metal detectors, which sounded as she did. She then refused to turn over her bag to Capitol Police, who in turn refused to let her enter House chambers, according to reporters on the scene.

It’s not clear how the matter was resolved. Reporters saw Boebert enter the House to vote, but couldn’t confirm if she was allowed through with her bag. Boebert’s office did not respond to a request for comment answering that question.


Members of Congress are allowed to carry guns elsewhere in the Capitol complex, but not on the House and Senate floors. Boebert suggested on Twitter on Tuesday that she had a gun with her that evening.

“I am legally permitted to carry my firearm in Washington, D.C., and within the Capitol complex,” Boebert said in a tweet about the incident. “Metal detectors outside of the House would not have stopped the violence we saw last week — it’s just another political stunt by Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi.”

I assume there are cameras everywhere in the capital. So any accusation of members giving recon walkthroughs could be proven at least visually, and further that anyone who was led thru the capital also showed up the next day.

If Mitch does vote to impeach, and even crazier if it forces more senators to actually remove him from office before election or even convict after election, they better be willing to work with Biden admin on how to deal with the crazies coming from them

This certainly adds a little more credence to what Jim Clyburn said about the rioters ignoring the office with his name plate on it but ransacked his office which has no signage and is in an out of the way area.

Wow! A GOP person who sounds sane!!

But wait

She then goes on to blame both sides (violence on both sides of the isle), quotes MLK, and then says she won’t vote for impeachment.

Even if we purge the Q crazies we will still be left with a bad faith party. One that still shares similar goal as fascists which is to hold on to power. They know a pretty face (male or female) who sounds reasonable is their best chance ahead.

The next Trump won’t be a complete idiot

I think it’s a hell of a lot more concerning if she is pictured with a bunch of people who were arrested many moons later as it implies these people were organized and that tour was less of a tour and more of a scouting operation.
