The Mayor of Washington DC, Muriel Bowser, is pushing hard for Congress to vote on Washington DC Statehood !!

She has been referring to herself as hypothetically the Governor !!

Could easily happen now with Democrats totally emboldened and big headed !!

She's been trolling the press conferences about the recent Capitol Building occupation (she's a star now).

She also suggests (i.e. demands) that She be given full authority over the DC National Guard (did she do that on Jan 20 2017 when DC was riot strickened ?) !! 🤣

Democrats will be launching bombshell legislation that will smack the whole world.


? Anybody noticing some weird ass backwardsness ? roflmao
Democrats are busy trying to turn all their proven lies and crimes into truths


D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) renewed the call for a vote on D.C. statehood under President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday as Democrats approach achieving Senate majority.

Bowser tweeted out a statement requesting that legislation establishing D.C. statehood be on Biden’s desk within the first 100 days of the 117th Congress.

“Washingtonians have waited over 200 years for the representation we deserve as American citizens,” the mayor said in her statement.

“With our seats at the table, we can help build back better than ever before,” she wrote. “Just like the millions of Americans who voted nationwide and the thousands who organized and voted in Georgia, we are ready to build a more perfect union – one in which all voices are heard, one in which we work together to uplift families in cities, and suburbs, and small towns, and one in which the 712,000 residents of Washington, DC have full access to our nation’s democracy.”

Heres A better idea.
Disband the district completely and give the land back to Maryland.

It either stays as is or reverts back to before the change.

Problem solved.

The Democrats already have enough inner city votes, why do they need more?

They already get electoral votes but if the are made a state they will have congressmen and senators added. Handy for the dems.

Only 14 states voted to ratify the Constitution and you need a 2/3rds majority.

It would hopefully fail again now as well if you tried to amend the constitution.

You actually think a 2/3rds majority of states would do that?

This is why they'll pack the courts.

Because when they vote on it, it'll be immediately called unconstitutional and be sent to the Supreme Court.

DC has more citizens living therein than Wyoming.

If they want Statehood, they should apply. (They have.)

In America, we look down on the idea of "taxation without representation."

Congress can reduce the Federal District as it has before.

No reason not to follow legal precedent.
