The weeping ‘MAGAbomber’ Cesar Sayoc reportedly broke down crying while reading his guilty plea, which could lock him up for life.

As he pleads guilty to trying to terrorize Trump critics, he began weeping and shaking inside the NYC federal courtroom. Sayoc is charged with 65 criminal counts stemming from his aborted bombing campaign last year.

When he sent pipe bombs to assorted political, financial and media elite late last year, Sayoc delivered what many interpreted as a howl of anger from the underbelly of “MAGA” America.

Communication and Democracy will not be achieved if we must rely on a third determinations party for the process to exist.

Social media giants have failed society time and time again by denying, complying, or buying competitors. Therefore it is time to talk to one another and look at the actions of your families, neighbors, friends, and colleagues.

The United States must never become detached to other nations, especially our neighbors in The Americas.

Lying In State vs Lying To The State

Submitted by ub on Thu, 03/21/2019 - 09:16

Lying in state is an honor reserved for select elected officials and military officers. They are granted the honor of having their casket placed in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol for public viewing. Members of the armed forces guard the casket, each representing one of the branches, and periodically rotate. Customarily, only Presidents, military commanders, and members of Congress lie in state. Contrary to POTUS claims, the National Cathedral likely approved McCain's state funeral arrangements, and authorization from Congress is needed for lying in state at the Capitol.
