And twice, despite the convincing evidence, failed to impeach him.

It is probably for the best that Trump was not impeached.

Otherwise it would have been a coup, a coup d'état, democracy would have died, everyone who participated in the new government would have been fascists and traitors, and none of the actions of the new government/dictatorship would have been legal or democratic.

At least in the eyes of republicans. And this is a very powerful propaganda to campaign on.

This is what happened here in Brazil. We impeached the Workers' Party in 2016. They call that a coup d'état. And they campaigned strongly on that, to this day. And today we are voting to bring back our version of Donald Trump. :(

This 100% solar community endured Hurricane Ian with no loss of power and minimal damage​


What he found was Babcock Ranch — only 12 miles northeast of Fort Myers, yet seemingly light years away.

Babcock Ranch calls itself “America’s first solar-powered town.” Its nearby solar array — made up of 700,000 individual panels — generates more electricity than the 2,000-home neighborhood uses, in a state where most electricity is generated by burning natural gas, a planet-warming fossil fuel.

The streets in this meticulously planned neighborhood were designed to flood so houses don’t. Native landscaping along roads helps control storm water. Power and internet lines are buried to avoid wind damage. This is all in addition to being built to Florida’s robust building codes.

So when Hurricane Ian came barreling toward southwest Florida this week, it was a true test for the community. The storm obliterated the nearby Fort Myers and Naples areas with record-breaking surge and winds over 100 mph. It knocked out power to more than 2.6 million customers in the state, including 90% of Charlotte County.

But the lights stayed on in Babcock Ranch.

Simplistic conclusion, so what is new ?
Happy that they didn’t lose power, location,scale and underground utilities have more to do with it than solar panels. They get their power just like everyone else, from FPL or whomever the power company serves the area
BTW there are only a few hundred homes built, we checked it out and was underwhelmed.
