Let's hope January 5th goes the way of November 3rd! That will  make 2021 even more remarkable!

That's it! At least at 12:01 in the morning on January 6th -it's looking like 2021 for America will be a politically "New Year"!  Unless for some reason I wake up later today and for some unknow reason 71k votes go south of cheese-but I don't think so!  It is a new dawn after four years of darkness.

Well, the Dem's won both senate seats at the same time the nation's capital gets mobbed by Trump thugs with one woman shot to death. I suppose it could have played out worse.

I could not even find the news on how that had ended in Georgia, among the Dutch headlines this morning, because it was completely drowned out by the storming of Capitol Hill. That was part of the plan of course. Big diversion. But big congratulations to Biden and Harris for achieving control in the Senate, strange as it seems, politically that has the bigger impact I would say. The storming of Capitol Hill, it is for a part at least for now, just Trump's going out with a bang party, a reality show with the difference that there are real casualties, 4 dead they say, 3 medical fatalities although unclear what that was right now. It could have been much, much worse with the numerous pipebombs, the chemical attack on the police to gain entrance, and teargas from the police in response. If just one person, police or protester, had lost selfcontrol even further...

So where will Trump go to live? I think maybe on his golf club in Schotland he is scheduled to fly there with the small Airforce One, or Air Force ½ perhaps they should call it, the 757. Does Nikola Sturgeon and the Scots want him there though, if he is going to live there permanently? He will not like the new Lockdown they have in place there. But if he doesn't go to Scotland, I fear he might end up in Greece, buy Sean Connery's old dwelling at the coast, and then he would end up living right next to our King Willem Alexander. Imagine the Marine One helicopter on the helicopter pad that the King and 007 shared, the thing will collapse! Máxima and Melania having teaparty's on the beachfront, while Willem and Donald race each other in their new speedboats. It will be the end of our monarchy...

Hi Eelco,
I imagine the news of the storming of our Citadel of Democracy is the talk of many countries to date. Here the talk has turned to invoking the 25th Amendment — an extraordinary measure that would remove the president before Trump’s term expires on Jan. 20. 
I think Americans are not interested in seeing what Trump will incite his supporters to do next.

Addendum:
Yeah! At least Biden has control of the Senate chamber! :)

Oh! Trump! Where will he be living? Well, you do realize the reason Trump doesn't want to give up his presidency? It's a small matter of bank and bank wire fraud, found on his many income tax filing, as reported by his once lawyer Michael Cohen.

There is a good  chance Donald will have felony charges place on him once he lives office and becomes a "private citizen" by The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Federal District Court.

That is one of the major reasons Trump is claiming he won the 2020 presidential election- as president he has immunity from prosecution. That ends on January 20th, 2021.

So! Trump may end up in a kind of country club prison,  after leaving the White House.  One that doesn't have a golf course on the grounds.
