1/ THREAD: Donald Trump will once again be Impeached by the House of Representatives. However, in order for the President to be *Convicted and Removed* by the US Senate, a vote of at least "two-thirds of the Members present" is required.

Note the crucial word, "present".
2/ If the Republican senators don't have the ethics and the courage to go on record and convict and remove Donald Trump from the Presidency, they can simply leave the Senate Chamber and the denominator in this two-thirds equation is lowered.
3/ Allowing for the swearing-in of @ossoff and @ReverendWarnock, if 25 of the 50 Republican senators *would simply leave the room*, two-thirds maths becomes achieved if the 50 Dems vote for conviction and removal and the 25 remaining Republicans vote against it.
4/ Of course, if any Republican senators, and very hopefully it will be so, vote for conviction and removal, their votes would lessen the number of Republicans necessary to leave the Senate Chambers prior to a vote (and still make a two-thirds majority possible).
5/ The above-described scenario would allow some Republican Senators to save face/walk-the-fence by abstaining their vote — and yet still making it easier to convict and remove Donald Trump.

Please forward this thread/idea to your Senator regardless of her/his party.

1/ THREAD: This is @HawleyMO's current profile pic at the top of his Wikipedia page. He can place any photo on this page he chooses. And no, this is not 'just the way he smiles' — this image shows #JoshHawley with a classic Contempt expression.

2/ Contempt is a clear and caustic tell that a person views him/herself as superior to another individual group — that they think of that person/group as beneath them.

3/ Contempt (along with Disgust) were the two most common emotional displays Nazi captors displayed toward their prisoners in Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Dachau, and the many other concentration camps during WWII.

1/ THREAD: On Sept. 11, 2011, 2977 Americans were killed by terrorists on American Soil. The United States retaliated with two Wars — one of which is still ongoing (the longest war in American history).
2/ Today alone, 3243 Americans were killed by COVID. To date, a total of 296,698 Americans have died. At least 75% (some estimates are higher than 90%) of these deaths were preventable if scientifically-medically sound approaches had been undertaken and practiced.
3/ Donald Trump and the Republicans are to blame for the vast majority of these deaths and long-term complications. Moreover, the secondary recession has been profoundly severe.

1/ THREAD: Hey Matthew McConaughey, "aggressively centric" is not the same as striving for objectivity. To some people and other casual observers, it may seem so, but these two viewpoints are not even in the same Universe.
2/ If one insists on their political ideology existing at some rough midpoint in what is currently America, you're playing the same game that many MSM organizations are playing. Being neutral in a field of ethics, morality, 'truth', & humanity does not make you wise or zen-like.
3/ And if you're as emersed in World culture as you claim to be, you should have known decades ago that what is politically "liberal" in the United States is centric in most other countries.

1/ THREAD: Trump will be 'given' a Federal pardon from Pence, once Trump resigns. Pence will pardon Trump only because Trump has significant Kompromat on Pence — which Trump has had since mid-2016 (via Putin).
2/ Theoretically, such extortion should, after investigation, negate any federal pardon. Although he has mentioned State Crimes more recently, Trump seems to be largely dismissing the idea of State Crimes — acting as if he could rig the system in NY. This is a juke.
3/ With significant likelihood, several states' attorneys general are withholding indictments until 21 January 2021.

1/ THREAD: "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
2/ Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war.
3/ We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

1/ THREAD: The following quote is not my own, but I agree with it:

"The vote is tipping toward Biden, and that's a good thing if it comes to fruition. It looks like Arizona and the upper midwestern states will at least have held off a total disaster...
2/ But this goddamned country. After all the lies, after the literal theft of a Supreme Court seat, after nearly a quarter-million dead, the repudiation of Trumpism isn't coming. It shouldn't have even been close...
3/ In fact, those Republican senators who embraced this scourge are being rewarded for their debasement by a corrupt system and a dull and lunatic electorate...
