I see secession in the near future. The central states will leave the coasts and form a country where all-lives-matter and an naacp that includes white, yellow, red, etc people. Antifa are shot on sight and abortion is paid for by you in a hospital procedure. There are no hyphenated-americans.
Congressman Jackson is talking about how it ought to play out, were President Biden and those around him honourable men and women who want the country to be well governed. Given that neither the president nor his people are in any way honourable, and running the country well was never on their agenda. I would not be shocked if Joe Biden is propped up to shake the hand of whoever is elected to succeed him in 2024.

[Just The News] For weeks following the January 6 Capitol breach, the FBI encouraged anyone believing they could identify a member of the Capitol mob to share the information with the bureau. In the past six months, dozens of participants in the riot have been turned in to the FBI by friends, neighbors, and family members. The Washington Post has detailed accounts of adult children who reported their parents and neighbors who called in faces they recognized, just days after the episode.
In early July, the FBI's official Twitter account sent out a message encouraging "family members and peers" of potentially violent extremists, to learn "how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI." While the FBI continues its aggressive pursuit of members of the January 6 mob based on tips provided by civilians and loved ones — the bureau has not always been so assiduous in soliciting or following up often critical tips about potential violent extremists from informants, allies, and members of the broader community.
Here are five notorious examples of FBI failure to follow through on tips about potentially violent extremists and gunmen:
Skipping down to #3 and one of the more flagrant examples:
3. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing: In 2011, Russian authorities warned the FBI about Tamerlan Tsarnev, one of the two Chechen brothers who carried out the bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 260.
Authorities missed chances to detain Tsarnev, despite reports that the Russian intelligence agency FSB had contacted the FBI more than a year prior to the bombing, to warn that Tsarnev had known associations with militant Islamic radicals.
A report from NBC News found that the FBI had opened an investigation of Tsarnev, that he was interviewed in person, and that a memo was sent to the Customs and Border Protection database that would, in theory, trigger a notification when he left or reentered the country. The FBI closed the investigation in June 2011, though the FSB continued to warn U.S. intelligence agencies.
Why? They have one or two convictions with over 300 sitting in prison without any dates of trial or charges. These people have been in prison for over six months with zero contact from the outside. In all legal definitions they are political prisoners and in better terms disappeared.

The “Great Writ” of habeas corpus is a fundamental right in the Constitution that protects against unlawful and indefinite imprisonment. Translated from Latin it means “show me the body.” Habeas corpus has historically been an important instrument to safeguard individual freedom against arbitrary executive power.
Seems like this fundamental right has been suspended/ignored.

Given that there was no possible rescue system available at that point in time, and the depth in question, and that the fate of the crew was sealed, I can see it being a kindness to assert all dies instantly. Cold, dark asphyxiation seems a pretty grim exit to imagine for a loved one....better to thing of an instantaneous end.
[DW] The head of Germany's foreign intelligence agency has warned that the Islamic State is just as strong as it ever was — even without its caliphate. Terrorism experts agree that it has morphed into a powerful network.
The head of Germany's foreign intelligence agency, the BND, has given a rare interview specifically to warn that, despite appearances, Islamist terrorism remains a real threat to world order, even 20 years after 9/11.
