H.Res. 25 would command our House Ethics Committee to investigate any sitting Congressperson who might have aided and abetted the January 6 attempted coup. Just so happens that one of the coup's organizers -- one Ali Alexander, apparently a star of social media who will not otherwise be remembered in a hundred years -- now says he "schemed up putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting" with three U.S. House Reps: Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama, while one witness has accused Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) of giving Capitol tours to rioters in the days before the attempted coup. "Investigating whether the coup was an inside job" sure does sound like a job for our Congressfolk! Hence Daily Kos helps you tell your House Reps to hold seditionists accountable by passing H.Res. 25. Don't brook any silliness about "unity" and "healing" and "looking forward" -- if no one pays for this, they'll just do it again and again.
Speaking of "looking forward," you may be exhausted enough from this Administration that you'll just be happy when they're gone, but fact is our President is on tape asking why Georgia's Secretary of State couldn't just find him 11,000-plus votes, and when you break the law, you should be punished. At least, that's what all his votaries say when black people break the law (and also when they don't!), but we've documented their blind spot pretty well over the years. Hence Daily Kos also helps you tell our government to investigate and charge our soon-to-be-ex-President for soliciting election fraud. Again, his votaries will tell you only "those people" commit election fraud, though the data tells us otherwise. Perhaps they'll also tell you he was "just joking," though "just joking" is how boys, not men, hide behind their wrongdoing, and if everyone was in on the joke, how come Georgia Republicans decided to tape the call? Soon they'll blame this on antifa, too.
In other news, Color of Change helps you tell the Chicago Police Board to fire Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7 President John Catanzara for his recent remarks supporting the January 6 seditionists. Just so happens the Board is already investigating Mr. Catanzara for various posts on Facebook, including one in which he said Muslims were "savages they all deserve a bullet" (sic), but last week he said he "get(s)" and "share(s)" the seditionists' "frustration," and he also suggested that "the worst crime here is trespassing," which is kind of like having it both ways. Pretty much anyone still not in thrall to this President (as Mr. Catanzaro apparently is) disagrees with all of those assessments, and really, more and more Americans are waking up to the fact that too many of our law enforcement officers will side with racists and seditionists when the heat is on. That means it's well past time to start rooting out the rot.
Finally, Win Without War helps you tell President-elect Biden to reverse our government's recent labeling of the Yemeni Houthis a terrorist organization. Our current President seems desperate to screw up as much as possible on the way out the door -- I half-expect toilets removed and kitchen cabinets pulled down -- and so it goes with this designation, which could choke off humanitarian aid to some 20 million good Yemenis regardless of whatever the Houthis have done. One could interpret this designation as a sop to Saudi Arabia, which really doesn't need any more sugar than we already give them, and a way of putting pressure on Iran, which wouldn't be necessary without the stupid Iraq War and which in any case the nuclear deal was already doing until this President pulled out of it for no damn good reason. I know Mr. Biden will have a lot on his plate (though, really, he's not going to be doing it alone!), but stupid people should not get all the say about everything, and shouldn't get to cause people to die, either.
