The U.S. Census Bureau has halted all work on President Trump's directive to produce a state-by-state count of unauthorized immigrants that would have been used to alter a key set of census numbers, NPR has learned. Senior career officials at the bureau instructed the internal team assigned to carry out Trump's presidential memo to stand down and cease their work immediately on Tuesday night, according to a bureau employee who spoke to NPR on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation in the workplace for speaking out.
although I sometimes give facts a hard time I do enjoy it when Padraig and Droid give a facts based beat down to some unfortunate right wing contrarian (usually Gus or Craner)

Trump becomes the first US president to be impeached twiceThe House has voted to impeach Donald Trump on the charge of incitement of insurrection, after the president incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol last week, resulting in five deaths.
The final vote was 232-197, with 10 House Republicans supporting the measure.
Trump has become the first president in US history to ever be impeached by the House twice.
The matter will now go before the Senate, which will decide whether Trump should be convicted and removed from office.
The trial will likely conclude after Joe Biden takes office anyway, but a conviction would prevent Trump from running for president again.
I heard from a certain someone that he's definitely going to be reinaugurated next week, however.So... Trump has been impeached as many times as all the other presidents put together. As well as losing the house, the senate and his presidency after one term, presiding over hundreds of thousands of needlessly dead and failing to be build a fucking wall.
