Honestly I'm not going to give any credit to anyone who resigns from the regime. Quitting your job 2 weeks early with millions in your bank account isn't exactly the pinnacle of courage.

Page wrote:Not at all surprised but nonetheless creeped out by how enthusiastically liberals have embraced the idea of charging people with sedition, a constitutionally questionable crime with a history of being used against labor and anti-war activists. 100 years ago people were charged with sedition for daring to suggest that 18 year old American boys shouldn't die in a war between European monarchs. And they're all so sure a right-wing government will never take power and use it against them.


Malaysia, Hong Kong, and India all have a colonial-era Sedition Act and it is as draconian as you make it out to be. Criticizing the monarchy, insulting Islam, and insulting the prime minister are all considered seditious in Malaysia. Suddenly the police aren't cracking down hard enough? Whatever happened to ACAB? Are Democrats going to demand that Antifa Blackshirts be charged with sedition? Does the Left actually stand for freedom at all or are they just grandstanding as usual?

That's not meaningless. They were entertaining his insane rhetoric because keeping his supporters was worth signing on for madness, now the optics have turned and they're willing to break with the hard line trumpos in order to not look like psychopaths.

Thing is Elaine Chao is probably the one pulling the strings of her hubby (McConnell) and was one who didn cared about anything before. She being quitting the party is a strong indication that the bust is about to come.

I think that requires a better understanding of the American people as a whole. Perhaps seeing the kinds of people that stormed the capitol yesterday will make things more clear.

While this could also work in the CDT, I wanted to post this here. Bishop Barron's excellent exhortation toward peace and civil discussion among US citizens I think is a good little source of light for our American Catholics. Highly recommend it.

I hope all of you have gotten some rest and are feeling a little refreshed from yesterday's chaos, please take care of yourselves and your neighbors.
