Synopsis:

We talked about Trump getting impeached for the second time and about his finally getting booted off Twitter for his lies and using the platform to incite a deadly insurrection.

We talked about over 100 of the January 6, insurrectionists having been arrested already. Among them was the son of a Brooklyn judge, a guy in Queens getting arrested with a serious arsenal. The pro-Trump crazies are not going away.

We talked about an incident that happened on December 21, in Salem, Oregon where right-wing demonstrators were outside the state capital building. Republican Representative Mike Nearman walked out of the building, and allowed one of the right-wing demonstrators standing there to grab the door before it could close. The right-wing demonstrators rushed into the state capital building and faced off with  cops who tried to stop them for about 10 minutes but then the right-wing intruders used chemical sprays on the cops and did damage to the building. Nearman is vice-president of an immigration group that is considered a hate-group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and one of his aides was a member of the Oregon Three Percenters, an extremist right-wing paramilitary group.

Pickles of the North talked about Freddy the Butterfly who is Wintering in Manitoba.
