    “We Will Manage the Hell Out of This Operation”
    “President-Elect Joe Biden proposed to overhaul eligibility rules for coronavirus vaccines and open more sites to receive shots, but his plan to rev up U.S. inoculations largely retains the bones of the Trump administration’s system.”

    President Elect Joe Biden:
    “Look, our plan is as clear as it is bold. Get more people vaccinated for free. Create more places for them to get vaccinated, mobilize more medical teams to get the shots in peoples arms, increase supply and get it out the door as soon as possible. This will be one of the most challenging operational efforts ever undertaken by our country.
    But you have my word, and we will manage the hell out of this operation.”

    “Biden Picks Former F.D.A. Chief to Lead Federal Vaccine Efforts”
    “Dr. David Kessler, who helped speed the development and approval of AIDS drugs in the 1990s, will become the top science official for the initiative the Trump administration had called Operation Warp Speed.”
    “Dr. Kessler is close to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor who became the leading governmental voice on the coronavirus pandemic. The two worked closely to speed the development and approval of drugs that changed the course of the AIDS epidemic in the 1990s.”

    Also imo important:
    “His 2009 book entitled The End of Overeating (a New York Times best seller), highlights for the consumer the amount of fat, salt, and sugar in their food intake. He asserts that this trio of elements in restaurant and processed foods conditions us to eat more, in a manner that changes our brain circuitry, and that children may develop a pattern of overeating and obesity that they might retain for life.[19] He stresses that this outcome of lifelong obesity is not genetic, but environmental and avoidable.”

    Despite my effort to bring Love and Light everywhere, it seems important to say if this lump of orange mediocrity doesn’t land in the slammer really soon after ‘leaving office’, where he had no business being in the first place, this country, this world, this planet, will never recover. I set out my views on sentencing way back in 2016, y’all may recall, I was not lenient.

    Jenna Ryan:
    “We are going to (expletive) go in here,” Ryan said in the video as she approached the top of the stairs on the west side of the Capitol building. “Life or death, it doesn’t matter. Here we go.”
    “She then turned the camera to expose her face, the complaint noted, and said,
    “Y’all know who to hire for your Realtor, Jenna Ryan for your Realtor.”
    Nearly halfway through, Ryan appears to have made it to the front door, chanting,
    “USA, USA” and “Here we are, in the name of Jesus.”
    In an interview with KTVT-TV in Fort Worth, Ryan said she hoped that Trump would pardon her.
    “I just want people to know I’m a normal person,
    that I listen to my president who told me to go to the Capitol…”

    Oh No!!! No one is safe from the crazies…not even the Crazy-in-Chief.

    According to a report from the HuffPost, far-right extremists who are hoping to disrupt the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday are furious with the president after he issued a video urging calm and no more violence following the storming of the Capitol that left five dead.

    That video, and a subsequent one, in turn enraged some of his most rabid followers who turned to chatrooms to accuse the president of being a coward and a traitor to the cause he initiated.

    “Some have called for his arrest or execution, labeling him a ‘traitor’ and a ‘coward.’ Alarmingly, many of those who are irate about Biden’s supposed electoral theft are still plotting to forcibly prevent him from taking office – with or without Trump’s help,” she wrote. “‘We don’t follow you,’ another Telegram user wrote, addressing Trump, after the president put out his video urging calm and order. ‘Be quiet and get out of our way.'”

      IMHO, what happens between Trump and his supporters is personal, except when it involves me and others. If the supporters don’t like a video, they are free to express their dissatisfaction to their Dear Leader, so long as it doesn’t involve the rest of the country.

      • January 16, 2021 at 3:57 pm

        I don’t really care if the cult has turned on him. Unfortunately, it seems that it has taken on a life of its own…even out of Dear Leader’s control. Just hope that the rabid faction is small enough that it can easily be reined in without too much damage/mayhem occurring.

    “Two things:

    (1) Are you surprised that the president of the United States would have a total crank like Lindell invited into the White House in the waning days of his term? At the same moment that he and his allies are bleating to the Democrats about how responsible they are for unity and decreasing tensions?

    Of course not.

    And the fact that you are not surprised is simply another data point in how far outside the norm this presidency has been.

    (2) Ten days ago the president of the United States incited an insurrection: He summoned a mob to Washington and then exhorted them to storm the Capitol, disrupt Congress’s attempt to count the electoral votes, and overturn the election.

    Now he invites a man to the White House who claims to have proof of The Big Lie that led to the attack and has the National Security Advisor meet with this person?

    This attack on our country might be farcical. It might feel like a B-list Fargo rip-off.

    But this attack is deadly serious and it is ongoing.”

    When dems were the racists party.

    A violent mob, whipped into a frenzy by politicians, tearing apart a town to overthrow the elected government.

    Following state elections in 1898, white supremacists moved into the US port of Wilmington, North Carolina, then the largest city in the state. They destroyed black-owned businesses, murdered black residents, and forced the elected local government – a coalition of white and black politicians – to resign en masse.

    Historians have described it as the only coup in US history. Its ringleaders took power the same day as the insurrection and swiftly brought in laws to strip voting and civil rights from the state’s black population. They faced no consequences.


    “No one was held accountable for the 1898 insurrection. Therefore it opened up the floodgates, especially in the south, for them to… strip African Americans’ civil rights,” he told the BBC. “That’s the first thing that came to my mind after the DC insurrection – you’re opening the door for something else to happen, or even worse.”

    The 1898 attack was not covered up. University buildings, schools and public buildings throughout the state were all named after the instigators of the insurrection. Men would later claim to have taken part in the attack to boost their stature in the Democratic Party. As the decades passed, history books started to claim the attack was in fact a race riot started by the black population and put down by white citizens.

    “Even after the massacre, a lot of these folks who participated in and orchestrated the insurrection became immortalised – statues, buildings named after them, throughout the country, especially in North Carolina,” Mr Everett said.


    Worth a read since we are seeing a repeat of that ugly history.

    Clothing brand Ralph Lauren has ended its sponsorship of world number three Justin Thomas following his use of a homophobic slur.

    The American apologised for the remark, which was made during the third round of the Sentry Tour of Champions in Hawaii earlier this month.

    “It’s inexcusable,” said the Ryder Cup player, 27, after making the comment.

    However, Ralph Lauren said it was “disheartened” by use of “language entirely inconsistent with our values”.

    The clothing company added: “While we acknowledge he has apologised and recognises the severity of his words, he is a paid ambassador of our brand and his actions conflict with the inclusive culture we strive to uphold.”

    Details are emerging of a raft of executive orders planned by US president-elect Joe Biden as soon as he takes office this week.

    Mr Biden will issue decrees to reverse President Trump’s travel bans and re-join the Paris climate accord on his first day, US media reports.

    He is also expected to focus on reuniting children separated from families at the border and issue mandates on Covid-19 and mask-wearing.

    Mr Biden will be inaugurated Wednesday.


    Among the orders planned soon after taking office are:

    A US return to the Paris climate agreement – the global pact on cutting carbon emissions
    Repealing the controversial travel ban on mostly Muslim-majority countries
    Wearing masks on federal property and when travelling interstate will me made mandatory
    An extension to nationwide restrictions on evictions and foreclosures due to the pandemic

    The executive orders are just one part of his ambitious plan for his first 10 days in office, according the memo.

    The President-elect is also expected to send a major new immigration bill to Congress as well as focusing on passing a $1.9tn (£1.4tn) stimulus plan to help the country’s economy recover from coronavirus.

      The Pentagon, in a break with recent tradition, will not host an Armed Forces Farewell tribute to President Donald Trump.

      It’s a shame, but not a surprise. Trump will leave office in disgrace, one week after the House voted a second time for his impeachment, two weeks after his supporters staged a deadly siege in the Capitol Building, six months after he dragged his Joint Chiefs chairman into a political firestorm, and after four years of nonstop assaults on truth. One of those disgraces is how he is ghosting the U.S. troops that he commanded.

      Two senior defense officials confirmed to Defense One on Thursday that no military farewell is being planned for the commander in chief.

      Perhaps it’s for the best. Trump has used the military as a political prop since his first days in office, from signing MAGA hats for troops to giving partisan-fueled speeches in the heart of the Pentagon. American’s soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines have been made to stand at attention for Trump’s rants long enough.

    Pardons for Sale?!?!?!?!? There’s got to be something illegal about this.

    According to the latest report from the NYT’s Michael Schmidt and Jonathan Vogel, based on documents and interviews with more than three dozen lobbyists and attorneys, the market for pardons has increased ever since it became apparent the president would be leaving office.

    “One lobbyist, Brett Tolman, a former federal prosecutor who has been advising the White House on pardons and commutations, has monetized his clemency work, collecting tens of thousands of dollars, and possibly more, in recent weeks to lobby the White House for clemency for the son of a former Arkansas senator; the founder of the notorious online drug marketplace Silk Road; and a Manhattan socialite who pleaded guilty in a fraud scheme.”

    The report also notes that Trump’s former personal attorney, John Dowd has been “marketing” himself to potential clients seeking pardons and that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani also has been implicated.

    Another traitorous thug’s ‘legacy’.

    Two women judges working for the Afghan Supreme Court have been shot dead.

    They were killed by unidentified gunmen on their way to work on Sunday. The deaths are the latest in a string of assassinations targeting journalists, activists and other political figures.

    The violence comes as President Donald Trump continues a drawdown of US troops in the country – with only 2,500 left.

    The Afghan vice-president told the BBC this week that the pull-out risks more violence in an unstable country.

      With the US due to complete the withdrawal of another 2,000 troops from Afghanistan, the Afghan vice-president tells the BBC the US made a mistake in conceding too much to the Taliban.

      Amrullah Saleh says the American mission, which began 20 years ago, is not yet accomplished.

      Last year President Donald Trump made a peace deal with the Taliban and agreed to drastically reduce US troops.

      Mr Saleh says the pull-out risks more violence in the unstable country.

      The Afghan government has been battling the Taliban, a hard-line Islamic movement, as the group tries to tighten its grip on parts of the country.

      Vice-President Saleh told the BBC that US talks with the Taliban were not a mistake in themselves, but that Mr Trump’s administration made an error in giving the group a “massive concession”.

    Biden-Harris inauguration ceremony kicks off with ‘Kolam’

    Kolam, a traditional Indian art form of drawing geometric patterns on the floors as a sign of welcome, was part of the virtual kick-off ceremony of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and his deputy Kamala Harris, who traces her origin to Tamil Nadu where these auspicious designs adorn almost every household.

    In Tamil Nadu, where Harris has roots, women draw Kolams on the ground to invite health and prosperity into houses where they are displayed.

    Pictures of thousands of Kolam tiles were on Saturday woven into a video to welcome Biden and Harris in the spirit of ‘Presidency for All’ and to showcase the multi-cultural heritage of America.

    More than 1,800 individuals from across the United States and many from India participated in the online initiative to create thousands of Kolam designs to celebrate the historic event.


    In my home, we do these kolams everyday morning.
