Hey, you ever been in Chicago and thought to yourself, I should go to a goddamn PACKED town hall with at least 100 people standing around the edges, 40 people sitting on the floor up front like common hippies, and at least 300 people over all jammed in to hear WHAT THE FUCK DO WE DO NOW asked and answered by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky?


ME TOO!

Above you'll find last night's video of Schakowsky FIRED UP and READY TO GO and CALL YOUR SENATOR A LOT RIGHT NOW and HEY HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT JOINING THE UNION?

Nobody wants to watch a 10-minute video, but also nobody wants to edit a video on her phone, so we'll make you a deal: You start watching, and you can turn it off when you are bored! But do get at least a taste. According to our hostess, your compatriot House of the Blue Lights, she has never seen Schakowsky a-yellin' and a-whoopin' like this. (She has also never seen a town hall with at least 300 damn people in it, she says: maybe 30, 40 people tops.)

So there you have it! About 10 percent of the room -- so at least 30 -- raised their hands to say they'd be going to the Women's March in DC. (One hundred percent of the rest will be marching in Chicago on Saturday.)

This is our official, personal invitation to Rep. Schakowsky to join the citizens of Wonkette.com at Bottom Line during the Inauguration (10 a.m. to probably 3 p.m., this Friday), from which she can "write out her tweets" and "do a Facebook" while we buy her "some chicken wings." YOU will be joining us there too, DC. (1716 I (Eye) Street NW)

As to the Women's March, don't forget wonkers will be meeting up at Potbelly Sandwiches, 409 3rd St SW, at 9:30 a.m. on Sat., Jan. 21! We will march together, for justice, and women, and fuck that guy but mostly FOR MARCHING!

Can't wait to see your beautiful faces.

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
