December 5th, 2021 was the date that many Americans, particularly Democrats, awaited to determine if the state of Georgia’s re-vote would or would not dethrone Senator Mitch McConnell from this Majority seat in the Senate of the United States. We eagerly and nervously watched as the long lines of brave, patriotic Georgia citizens walked and waited and walked and waited again until it was their turn to cast their vote. The golden vote that would help bring down a fascist government and avoid another World War similar to the second world war. It’s fair to say that those of us watching were back seat voters. We chatted, we guessed, we pleaded and hoped and prayed. By 7PM the Georgia polls closed and the main conductor of this event, Stacey Abrams, put out a message that those in line should remain there until their turn arrived to vote. “Do not leave the line”, she instructed. “Stay and wait to cast your vote”. Rapidly thousands of us repeated Stacey’s instructions. You see, Stacey Abrams is the modern time underground conductor. The message must have gotten through because no one moved. Everyone voted.

The counting started and reports started coming in. It’s maddening to try to obtain accurate information but thousands of us searched and shared what we found. Our two contenders, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock were America’s chance to control the Senate and the entire world was watching.

Late into the evening news broke out that Raphael Warnock had won his seat to the Senate. It appeared that Ossoff would also but his numbers were inching along with a mind of their own ‘killing us softly’. By daybreak confirmation also arrived for Ossoff. He had won his senatorial seat and Democrats would now control the Senate, the House of Representatives and the Executive Branch. Relief, joy, awe, gratitude defined how we received this extraordinary news. Many said that we could never pull this off. Well, never say never, because we did. We also did it the old fashion way, with hard word and honest love for our country. Just as we were enjoying how Mitch McConnell would be renamed the Minority Leader of the Senate we turned our focus to the electoral count to take place later that morning on January 6th, which would confirm beyond any questionable doubt President-elect Joe Biden’s win and right to the presidency.

Donald J. Trump had been doing his usual campaign about being robbed of his second term and all other nonsensical theories he attempted to sell everyone.

It must have been mid morning, while the joint session of congress met to go about their business of counting the electoral votes that Trump held one of his rallies in front of the White House. His speech covered his usual grievances and complaints but this time he added the invitation that something should be done to save his presidency. It sounded like a command for action.

During the joint session going on at those precise moments I watched a brief video of the Senator from Missouri stating that he disagreed with the results of the electoral votes. Vice President Mike Pence asked if he had his complaint in writing. The legislator responded that he did. Vice President Pence instructed him to give the document to someone. I could not hear who the document was meant for. At that time dozens of legislators stood in support for this action applauding. My mind was trying to process what what I was seeing. At this precise moment news broke that the Capitol had been breached and all hell broke lose.

We all saw the rest in real time. We watched as many people ran towards the building, jumped and climbed walls. Once inside the building, they took pictures of themselves and each other while they stole property. One woman was shot and killed. So far about 55 people have been arrested. As I write this a fence is being built in front of the Capitol Building and we are still trying to make sense of what happened. To put it plainly, a sitting president attempted to stop a transition of power with the use of force and weapons. It was and attempted coup d’état. Overthrowing a government.

Around 3AM on the 7 of January, President-elect Joe Biden was confirmed as the new President of the United States. Donald J. Trump released a statement that he conceded and would allow for a peaceful transition of power. He also said that he intended to return and make America great.

There are many players in these events. All are relevant and each word they utter is important if you wish to truly grasp the events. These couple of paragraphs herein just outline the main titles and their chronology.

In my opinion the most important event in the aftermath of this attempted coup is a statement released by Senator Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who is poised to become the Senate majority leader when democrats take control of the chamber from Republicans later this month. “The quickest and most effective way – it can be done today -to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th Amendment. If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up Congress should reconvene to impeach the president.”

More later.

This is the end game. In the mean time Trumps weapons to move his followers, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have frozen his accounts. He is home alone. Is he under house arrest? I do not know but he sure should be.
