I know it's hosed by Jim's favorite actor but if you skip over him there are some fine, even inspiring performances in Celebrating America.  Other interesting asides as well.  In particular I recommend:

16:20  Bon Jovi, Here Comes The Sun, on a dock in the ocean.

22:00  Yo Yo Ma, Amazing Grace.

40:00  Foo Fighters, hang with Dave Grohl, they rock.

1:03:00  John Legend, at the bottom of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

1:12:00  Tyler Hubbard and Tim Mc Graw, Undivided.

1:21:30  Demi Lovato, Lovely Day.

Fireworks.  Quite a Grande Finale.

 

  

A Historic Day.

Although we narrowly fended off an attempted coup, Avril Haines could not be confirmed by the Senate today as director of national intelligence until she put in writing at the demand of the vile Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) that she and the Biden administration would not go after CIA officers from the Bush-Cheney regime for their involvement in the US government torture program. She had given verbal assurances, but he insisted on having it in writing. (See articles in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Politico. Cotton wanted this known.)

That’s just Day One. The lines were drawn already.

Cotton wants to be president. Imagine what he would do if he gets that job. I wonder if the torture program actually ended when Obama said it did or not (Haines was a deputy CIA director in the Obama administration). And I wonder what did Cotton himself do in the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. A friend of mine says he would have demanded that Cotton specify in detail, on the floor of the Senate and for the Congressional Record, exactly what crimes he was referring to.

Cotton strikes me as the kind of better-educated, more disciplined potential tyrant who has learned from what Trump did in his failed coup and could pull one off more efficiently if he takes office in 2025.

Unfortunately It's a hard time for Q anon supporters, who believed that Trump would use the military yesterday at the last minute and initiate the "storm". They could swear  Trump was dog whistling them to that effect. It could have been so awesome!

Now the hard core Neo Fascist, White Supremacy groups are swooping in online to convert the Q Anons.

Right-wing extremists and their supporters use Christian website to raise funds

By Majlie de Puy Kamp and Scott Glover, CNN January 20, 2021

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/19/us/give-send-go-extremism-invs/index.html

 

“Before Proud Boys member Nick Ochs was arrested and charged in connection with the insurrection at the US Capitol, he raised $300 on the Christian-oriented website GiveSendGo.com to help get him to DC.

Following Ochs' arrest, a supporter turned to GiveSendGo to raise money for his legal defense, a campaign that has garnered nearly $20,000 for the member of the right-wing extremist group.

The campaigns for Ochs weren't the only controversial causes on the site. A CNN review found more than two dozen fundraisers related to protesting the outcome of the presidential election, raising travel funds to attend the January 6 protest in Washington and other right-wing causes.

  • Among the campaigns and their beneficiaries: Ali Alexander, a Stop the Steal organizer who raised money for a "security and administrative team." As of today, he's reached 75% of his $40,000 goal on the platform.

  • Friends and family of Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys, have raised more than $113,000 for his legal defense on GiveSendGo.com. Tarrio was arrested two days before the insurrection at the Capitol and charged with destruction of property for burning a Black Lives Matter banner after a protest in December and with possessing high-capacity firearm magazines.

  • Jim Hoft, founder of the conservative news outlet Gateway Pundit, is currently the beneficiary of two campaigns on GiveSendGo.com, totaling more than $135,000, intended to fund an investigation into alleged voter fraud in Michigan and to "take on the tech giant censorship of conservative voices."

  • At least five other campaigns that collectively raised nearly $200,000 are tied to self-described Proud Boys members looking for funds for "protective gear," travel expenses to the January protest in Washington, DC, and medical costs after a December rally in the capital turned violent.”

Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo defends decision to host campaign for Kyle Rittenhouse

By Roxanne Stone August 31, 2020

“Jacob Wells has been inundated with hundreds of emails and phone calls since Friday evening.

“Some of the language has been very colorful,” he said.

Wells is the co-founder of GiveSendGo, a Christian crowdfunding site that is currently hosting a campaign to raise money for the legal defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, who has been charged with two homicides and one attempted homicide in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The campaign, “Raise money for Kyle Rittenhouse Legal Defense,” has raised $280,000 as of Monday evening (Aug. 31), well beyond its $200,000 initial goal.”

It’s the Black Bloc faction of antifa.  Back to the good old days of the Left holding the feet of Corporate Centerists to the fire!

I’m not down with vandalism, but it has a -back-to-normal feel.
