A Blue America: A follow up to my last article on the 2020 senate run-off election

Senate Run-off Results:

On Tuesday, Jan 5 the election centers opened, and the people of Georgia seemingly held their breath waiting for the results. The special election run-off finished first between Kelly Loeffler and Raphael Warnock, with Loeffler having 49.1 percent and Warnock having 50.9 percent. Next, the regular election against candidates Jon Ossoff and David Perdue, which led to another Democratic win with Ossoff having 50.5 percent and Perdue 49.5 percent. 


With the Democrats winning both the election and the senate, major changes–in not only Georgia but America–will be put into place in the next four years. For one, it’ll be easier for President-elect Joe Biden to pass laws with no opposing senate. The New York Times says, “The Democrats’ twin victories will reshape the balance of power in Washington…where Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will break 50-50 ties, Democrats will control the committees and the legislation and nominations brought to the floor.”  Warnock is the first African American senate representative to be voted in the Senate from Georgia. Ossoff will be the first Jewish man in the Senate and the youngest person to be elected into the Senate. 


The Pro-Trump Protests in Washington:

On Jan. 6, Trump supporters stormed the capital building in Washington D.C in protest of not only the senate election but the senate run-off election. A day that will haunt America’s history forever. Trump tweeted New Year’s Day, “The BIG Protest Rally in Washington D.C., will take place at 11:00 A.M on January 6th.” It was only 30 minutes after President Trump finished speaking that things turned aggressive. People reported shots fired where a woman, whose identity still remains secret from the public, was shot and later pronounced dead. As the mob breached the building, the senate chamber was emptied, and the Pentagon enacted the entire D.C. national guard. Trump then tweets, “I am asking for everyone at the U.S Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party and Law & Order. Respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” 


On Jan. 7 at 2 p.m., Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi calls for Trump’s removal by invoking the Twenty-fifth Amendment. Which invokes the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation. Meaning the Vice President shall become President. Pelosi says, “If the Vice President and the cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with the impeachment.” She then addressed Trump as, “A very dangerous person who should not continue in office,” continuing on to say, “This is urgent, an emergency of the highest magnitude.” If Vice President Mike Pence and\or the cabinet does not take any action, then President Trump will be set for impeachment. Although, many steps will have to be followed to be impeached as President. And with President-elect Joe Biden taking up Presidency on Jan. 22, it is unlikely much action will follow.
