Washington chaos leaves image of 'exceptional' America in tatters

The storming of the US Congress by supporters of President Donald Trump left America's image as a beacon of democracy severely tarnished on Thursday, with allies unable to hide their shock and authoritarian regimes gleefully exploiting the unrest.

In normal times, a state-backed gang rampaging through a legislature to demand a lost election be nullified would have US diplomats marching to their laptops to draft a statement of condemnation.

Now come on, Thaiga! That was the most peaceful demonstration ever in Washington. DT calmed that mob misled by Democrats and asked for understanding of the opposition's views instead of inciting unrest. Better read the alternative truth by the realDonaldTrump on twitter than trusting any fake news media!

The House and Senate certified Joe Biden's electoral college win early on Thursday after a violent throng of pro-Trump rioters spent hours on Wednesday running rampant through the Capitol.

Amnesty condemns Trump for 'instigating' Capitol invasion
At least four people died as rioters invaded Congress in Washington, shortly after Trump held a rally nearby to protest results of the presidential election won by his Democrat rival Joe Biden.  In his speech, subsequent audio recording and tweets, Trump continued to reject the US election results and incite his supporters – leading thousands to storm and breach the US Capitol, said the rights watchdog.

Hats off to Vice President Pence who withstood the Trump bullying and got the job done. There is no doubt in my mind that the mob in the Capitol would have killed him had they got their hands on him.

White House finally tells thousands of political appointees they have to step down
 The White House on Thursday told thousands of political appointees — from ambassadors to schedulers — to resign on Inauguration Day, a formality the Trump administration had stalled for weeks as President Trump disputed the election outcome.

A directive was emailed to agency heads that political appointees must resign effective Jan. 20, the day President-elect Joe Biden takes office, a White House spokesman confirmed. The order was issued by Chris Liddell, the deputy White House chief of staff who has been leading transition arrangements with the Biden team, and was first reported by Politico.

The call for resignations came within hours of Trump's statement early Thursday that there would be an orderly transfer of power, and as a wave of senior political appointees quit in protest over Wednesday's storming of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. They include Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and several senior-level national security officials and press aides.

The White House had refused since the November election to issue the call for resignations, which has been made by every outgoing administration between Election Day and mid-December.

In Trump's case, White House officials declined to request the resignations because the president refused to acknowledge Biden's victory, challenging the voting results in the courts, on his Twitter feed and at a rally Wednesday. Congress certified the electoral college results early Thursday.

As the country of extremes, the "united" should be taken off its name. I never thought this  development, the split, better called a gap filled with idiocy, could become as bad. This happens, when a society looses its middle class, when the economic concentration just gets out of control.

Snapchat Bans Donald Trump Permanently From Site
Donald Trump's access to social media has been largely cut off since a violent mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol in Washington DC in a deadly attack on January 6.

Image-centric social network Snapchat on Wednesday said it has permanently banned US President Donald Trump from the platform, as voices are raised against keeping him off the internet stage.

Trump's access to social media has been largely cut off since a violent mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol in Washington DC in a deadly attack on January 6.

Operators fear that Trump could use his Snapchat account to foment more unrest in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.

"Last week we announced an indefinite suspension of president Trump's Snapchat account," Snapchat said in response to an AFP inquiry.

"In the interest of public safety, and based on his attempts to spread misinformation, hate speech, and incite violence, which are clear violations of our guidelines, we have made the decision to permanently terminate his account."

After the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters, social media including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube began to bar him from using their platforms.

Google and Apple pulled Parler apps from their shops for digital content shops stating that the right-leaning social network was allowing users to promote violence.

Amazon Web Services later ousted Parler from its data-centers, essentially forcing the social network offline due to lack of hosting services.
