Overcoming the tragedy of 6 January and the coming crises of inauguration week require attention to how it is less about calls for unity and more about Constitutional justice. Pay attention to your doomscrolling; take care of your self.
A video found on TikTok showed a sobbing man at the airport who found out that he'd been put on the no-fly list created and maintained by the Terrorist Screening Center (TSC).
Stopping the man from being able to go back to their home states can help local and federal law enforcement find the men before they flee or go into hiding.“This is what they do to us,” the man sobbed as he walked past a gate. “They kicked me off the plane. They called me a f*cking terrorist! And they f*ckin' want to ruin my life!”

BOISE, Idaho (CBS2) — A Boise man who stormed the U.S. Capitol building is speaking out about his actions.
Photos from Wednesday’s siege of the U.S. Capitol building appeared to show Josiah Colt climbing down the balcony onto the Senate floor.
CBS2 News has been in contact with Colt and received the following statement:
“I love America, I love the people, I didn’t hurt anyone and I didn’t cause any damage in the Chamber. I got caught up in the moment and when I saw the door to to the Chamber open, I walked in, hopped down, and sat on the chair. I said my peace then I helped a gentlemen get to safety that was injured then left.
While in the Chamber I told the other protesters that this is a sacred place and not to not do any damage. Some of them wanted to trash the place and steal stuff but I told them not to and to leave everything in it’s place. We’re still on sacred ground.
And sincerely apologize to the American people. I recognize my actions that have brought shame upon myself, my family, my friends, and my beautiful country. In the moment I thought I was doing the right thing. I realize now that my actions were inappropriate and I beg for forgiveness from America and my home state of Idaho.
My intention wasn’t to put a stain on our great Country’s Democratic process.”
