Oh lord!” the maskless ones said with a gasp.
“Now some doctors say to wear two masks?
We never wore one!
This order too we will shun,
Let’s storm the Capitol wearing our casques!”
a conversation with David Schultz, who is a Hamline University Professor of Political Sciences who teaches across a wide range of American politics classes including public policy and administration, campaigns and elections, and government ethics. David is also a professor in the Hamline and University of Minnesota Schools of Law where he teaches election law. David is the author of 30 books and 100+ articles on various aspects of American politics, election law, and the media and politics, and he is regularly interviewed and quoted in the local, national, and international media on these subjects by agencies including the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Economist, and National Public Radio. His most recent books are Presidential Swing States: Why Only Ten Matter(2015), Election Law and Democratic Theory (2014), and American Politics in the Age of Ignorance: Why Lawmakers Choose Belief Over Research (2013). A three-time Fulbright scholar who has taught extensively in Europe, Professor Schultz is the 2013 Leslie A. Whittington national award winner for excellence in public affairs teaching.
Prof. Schultz contends that impeachment is pointless, because it only gives Trump the opportunity to have a forum. He is currently being publicly ignored, because he has no platform on social media. While individuals should be criminally prosecuted, impeachment at this stage should not happen. Criminal prosecution will be more effective later, when more information is available. A Reconciliation Committee would be more effective.
The question of Marjorie Taylor Greene, is that she is a 'useful idiot'.

Biden’s Hawkish Foreign Policy Could Derail Moves to Fight Austerity
Nugget: In his first days in office. President Joe Biden has signaled a willingness to disavow austerity policies and expand public benefits, sparking cautious optimism about whether his administration could succeed in minimizing damage done by the coronavirus pandemic. But Biden is at risk of repeating similar mistakes made by President Lyndon B. Johnson, who promised more relief to the poor than he could deliver because of his decision to escalate conflict in Vietnam. "War is why you can't have nice things."
We discuss the militarization of American society, particularly the law enforcement sector. The Pentagon, a "chaos machine" has done nothing to prevent more wars, instead, fostering new ones. We talk about what steps need to be taken to reestablish a rational US foreign policy role. 1-stop killing people, 2-get rid of the military infrastructure, and how it perpetuates itself, 3-apologize for previous actions, such as supporting the Saudis. We talk about the dilemma that Democrats have : they have to show toughness to maintain credibility.
