GOP #Senate leader #mitchmcconnell #blockedvote on $2000 #coronavirusaid #checks.
GOP’s top 10 #richest #senators worth over $billion are worried about #nationaldebt after giving themselves ongoing #taxcuts worth 3x this onetime #emergencyaid?
➡️#Mitch is 5th wealthiest
➡️#Georgia’s GOP #senators —1st & 8th richest—opposed all aid year long. This month they changed their positions & agreed to vote for relief but did not oppose McConnel’s block today.
➡️Polls essentially show #Democrats #RaphaelWarnock & #JonOssoff tied with them; we can #ditchmitch by helping them win.

UPDATED: Waiting a week & letting #federal #unemployment benefits expire, Trump backed down & took a break fr golf to sign the modest #coronavirusaid bill without explanation. He avoided a #governmentshutdown today but wants #morecuts in the extended #budget. #23Days #BidenHarris2020 14M lost #federal #unemployment benefits Saturday as Trump golfs & refuses to sign the #coronavirusaid & #budget bill.

✔️Monday she will succeed with a #rollcall #vote
✔️But #mitchmcconnell has blocked other #Senate votes on > #stimulus since May.

Trump’s sudden interest in #coronavirusaid bill may be just another way to get support for his mad claims to #reelection, but #Pelosi’s taking him up on the increase fr $600 to $2000 #stimuluschecks with a #vote tomorrow. It’s still much less than aid by other nations #ditchmitch. 28 days to go.

#Solstice #Conjunction:
The #longestnight of the year put on quite a show last night. You still can catch it.
🪐See #Jupiter & #Saturn converge right after #sunset. Here over #MtTamalpais. From #Oakland over #TheBay. If you have a #telescope or #binoculars you might see the #moons of Jupiter and rings of Saturn too.
🌙The #halfmoon was gorgeous as it set after #midnight until it disappeared in the #fog.
The #fogbank is unpredictable so don’t be late!
The #universe helps put our problems in perspective. Enjoy the beauty and wonder. #Peace

#Vandalism against 2 historic #WashingtonDC #AfricanAmerican churches are crimes against #allamericans. They are #hatecrimes that should be investigated by the #FBI.
These pre-CivilWar churches, #MetropolitanAME Church and #AshburyUnitedMethodistChurch , are part of #America’s #abolitionist and #civilrights history—#nationaltreasures.
Metropolitan was recently in the national eye for #PBS anchor #GwenIfill’s funeral. Services for #RosaParks & #FrederickDouglas were also held there. The #Obama’s attended service before the 2nd #inaugural.

#WhatADifference:
Instead of just celebrating his own #ElectoralCollege #victory #PresidentElect #JoeBiden noted the triumph of #democracy #ruleoflaw and the #voters over the #pandemic & #abuseofpower.
Unlike #45 he’s kept his focus on the #coronavirus #crisis noting that US surpassed 300,000 #covid19 #deaths today “leaving a #blackhole in our hearts.”

🗽More scary 70% of Republicans (who = 29% of voters) believe Biden’s election is #illegitimate.

In what history will see as a #coupattempt 126 or 60% GOP Congress reps backed the failed #Texaschallenge to the #election of #JoeBiden.
Some call it a Trump #loyaltytest. The real test was whether they uphold the #Constitution, they failed.
4 #California GOP reps including the #minorityleader backed this effort. #wewillrememberthem and should start organizing for 2022.

"For changing the American story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world” #TIME Magazine named #JoeBiden & #KamalaHarris 2020 #PersonoftheYear for Dec21 cover.
Today’s announcement no doubt makes #45 unhappy. cnn.it/3gEajqD
😠Trump is obsessed with their covers. Displaying himself on #fakecovers at his golfcourses.
😠For decades whining about not making their #mostinfluential list
😠Lied about being considered in 2017.
😠Beaten by critics during his presidency: #MeToo #SilenceBreakers in 2017, #TheGuardians reporters facing persecution 2018, teenage #climatefighter #GretaThunberg 2019.
Both Trump & his covers will be #history soon.
