  1. Looming threat: Sith Army (Star Wars: Endless Vigil) And my antagonist is spelled Alfred Bester (Babylon 5). You have Alferd Bester. Minor quibble.
  2. Mentor: Bob Howard (Laundry Files) Crush: Nathaniel Cade (The President's Vampire)
  3. It seems a pillow salesman went to the White House with thoughts about Martial Law. We know because he left his notes visible, like a bad poker player. Then he was very open about his discussion on Facebook and with interviewers. After White House Meeting with Trump, Mike Lindell Calls for Military Coup on Facebook - The Bulwark
  4. Hermione winced. This was by far the most powerful legilimens she'd ever had to deal with. But why did he seem to have it in for her? Antagonist: Alfred Bester (Babylon 5)
  5. An obliviate charm, in a muggle trinket? How very unexpected! The witch stepped over the agents she'd just incapacitated. She simply had to learn more about how muggles came by a very magical effect with one of their toys. Applicant: Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
  6. But he gave Republicans the Supreme Court for the foreseeable future.
  7. An analysis of QAnon by a game designer. https://medium.com/curiouserinstitute/a-game-designers-analysis-of-qanon-580972548be5
  8. Not the onion: The rioters left behind signs, flags, hats, pepper spray cans, and other garbage. The Smithsonian is collecting it as historical artifacts. https://thehill.com/homenews/news/533475-flags-signs-and-other-items-left-behind-in-capitol-riot-to-be-preserved-as
  9. I'm not convinced the twitter shutdown will help much. His audience REALLY likes him and will follow him to Parler or whatever platform he finds. Speaking of, there is a report of organizing a 'million militia march' on DC and all state capitals. The riot in DC was mostly signs and cameras, flags and phones. This one . . . could be interesting. Twitter warns of new violence to come, brewing again on social media, as reason for Trump ban (msn.com) Counterpoint: the reason the rioters were able to do so well against the Capitol is that it was a surprise. The rioters
  10. Would there be any interest in revisiting my "Masterlist Superdraft"? That was when we collectively built a limited set of characters, then drafted solely off that list. Oddly, I tried going back to the original one, to copy the rules and review the selections, but I think it got deleted sometime. *shrugs* I prefer the summer months, when our pedagogically inclined posters can join in, but whatever. Another idea: "The shameless Mary Sue Author Insert superdraft". The fanfic is a major part of any draft, so embrace it with a common fanfic trope: one of the characters is you! a you
  11. The rioters brought flags and phones, few guns. Bombs, I suppose, but still not enough violence or preparation for violence to mark it a coup IMHO. I was amused by the us-vs-them disconnect. Liberals point to the show of police force to BLM protesters in contrast to the the tame reaction the Trumpist rioters got. The Conservatives point to the schadenfreude for an unarmed woman killed vs the outrage over an unarmed black guy shot and paralyzed when he looked like he was going for a knife. "Hold muh beer hall putsch"
  12. Conservative sites seem torn between cheering the rioters and claiming it was an antifa false flag operation. One guy they were claiming to have pics of at antifa events was the painted weirdo in the buffalo hat. He is definitely a Trumpist QAnon type https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/arizona/2021/01/06/arizona-qanon-supporter-jake-angeli-joins-storming-u-s-capitol/6568513002/
  13. Mulling it over, I do *not* think Trump will pardon any of the Capitol-invaders.
  14. Impeachment can not only remove people from office, it can ban them from ever holding office again.
  15. It is possible that former presidents could be impeached. It would take a supreme court case to know for certain. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/12/06/can-former-presidents-be-impeached/
  16. At least the injuries were minimal, especially for being close to downtown, and I don't see any sign of it being politically motivated or terror related.
  17. Did you feel that one, Hermit? Bomb exploded, rocked Nashville. https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/25/us/nashville-explosion/index.html
  18. I can see Ahsoka Tano's point. Grogu was super into the dark side there.
  19. The virus has claimed the sci fi writer Ben Bova Ben Bova, science fiction writer, dies in Naples from COVID-19 (naplesnews.com)
