Sasse, in fiery op-ed, says QAnon is destroying GOP | TheHill

“Until last week, many party leaders and consultants thought they could preach the Constitution while winking at QAnon. They can’t,” Sasse wrote. “The GOP must reject conspiracy theories or be consumed by them. Now is the time to decide what this party is about.”

Sasse also criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for not disavowing Taylor Greene’s campaign and called the freshman lawmaker “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.” 

“During her campaign, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a choice: disavow her campaign and potentially lose a Republican seat, or welcome her into his caucus and try to keep a lid on her ludicrous ideas. McCarthy failed the leadership test and sat on the sidelines,” Sasse opined. 

Taylor Greene stated this month that she plans to bring articles of impeachment against Biden the day after his inauguration. 

Sasse acknowledged her plan, hitting the Georgia Republican: “She’ll keep making fools out of herself, her constituents, and the Republican Party,” he said.

The Nebraska lawmaker concluded, stating that in order to play a “constructive part” in America’s future, the GOP must “repudiate the nonsense that has set our party on fire,” and “rebuild itself” by offering a “genuine answer to the frustrations of the past decade.”

The United Nations has been informed by Russia that this week they are planning to withdraw all 300 military instructors, and transport helicopters from the Central African Republic. The Russian military instructors were sent to the country back in December 2020 to monitor the Presidential election, which was held on December 27th 2020. Many witnesses and aides claimed that these instructors actually went to the front lines to fight off the rebels. Violence has erupted in the country when the ex-President Francois Bozize’s candidacy was declined for the the December 27 election.

Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

O homem e a sua eterna construção. Linda imagem, não? Um homem guiado pelos instintos, medos, vontades e espírito […]. Um ser cercado de sensações, paixão, razão trabalhando seus propósitos.

A vida tem os seus propósitos, e nós vamos lapidando estes, na medida de nossas necessidades.

As pessoas não podem notar, mas a espessura dos nossos pensamentos, faz com que cada um, digo cada ser humano possa lapidar as suas preocupações, seus problemas, interesses… até encontrar a solução, na verdade, a palavra que busco qui, seria ‘ resposta ‘.

Cada vez que nos esculpimos, vamos deixando de lado, os abandonos, a solidão. Pois, somos…

Off-duty police were part of the Capitol mob – The Washington Post

at least 13 officers are under investigation for possible participation in the rioting, as well more than a dozen Capitol Police officers who may have assisted the mob that seized the Capitol.

The officers — and at least one police chief — came from tiny departments with less than a handful of officers to large agencies with thousands on their force.

union leaders said they are shocked by how some of their members appeared to cross the line at the Capitol. They also said officers who breached the Capitol should not expect their unions’ support in their legal battles.

“We took an oath to protect the constitution and the rule of law,” said Patrick Yoes, national president of the Fraternal Order of Police. “When people decide they are going to violate that — they are alone.”
