Americans got a full look at USA racial and ethnic makeup as the U.S. Census Bureau revealed data following its decennial survey.

The U.S. Census Bureau held a news conference to release of the first local-level results from the 2020 Census. States use these data on race, Hispanic origin, and the voting-age population to redraw the boundaries of their congressional and local legislative districts.

The GOP is running scared and desperately searching for their next conspiracy theory to spread, while the DOJ warns consequences.

Arizona was once known for the Grand Canyon, but the GOP today is changing it to the big lie as they’ve tried time and again to disprove the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Our founding fathers made it crystal clear while writing The US Constitution,  that by the way, have you read it in its entirety?

Know that It does not matter what language we use, the message is going to be the same… #LoserLiar #TwiceImpeached #LameDuckDonald. Tu demanda contra Facebook, Twitter, Google y YouTube no tiene mérito… Your lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube is without merit… 针对 Facebook、Twitter、Google 和 YouTube 的诉讼毫无.

Does he, or the GOP have any new ideas besides canceling elections, repeating debunked claims, big lies, and conspiracies? Why have Republicans descended into fantasy, conspiracy, and continuing falsehoods?

Republicans are now embracing the popular features of the #COVID relief plan they all voted against and with minority leader Mitch McConnell saying he will follow the same obstructionist playbook he used against President Obama, Democrats should continue to advance popular legislation without bothering to work with GOP members.

USA Voting rights, specifically the disenfranchisement of different groups, has been a moral and political issue throughout history. American eligibility to vote is governed by the Constitution as well as by federal and state laws. Since the GOP is not willing to vote for voting rights, and if the only way to safeguard our fundamental right to vote is to blow up the filibuster, then ignore Republican taunts and just do it.

US Senate votes to acquit former President Trump on an article of impeachment for "incitement of insurrection." After voting to acquit, #MoscowMitch McConnell was slamming Trump for his lies leading up to Jan 6 and the violence at the Capitol. McConnell’s vote to convict could have changed everything, but he may have left his spine in Kentucky.

A Failing Falling GOP

As a former @USAGov Division Chief for George HW Bush, the last real Republican POTUS, it brings me no pleasure to ask
why American voters ignored the lies and warning signs of the GOP White House and #CULT45 inflicted on our Democracy? How could Republican leaders have voiced early alarms about a rogue president, then discussed it but set them aside? Possibly because they are liars who distort reality to shape their politics. These people are immune to evidence, logic, or scientific information, and they continue to recycle them.
