Bullshit. “a man of integrity and ethics” would not have accepted a Trump appointment or kept it once it was clear he was working for a Felon and Traitor

“Josh Minkler has served Indiana well for more than two decades — first as an assistant United States attorney, then as my first assistant and, most recently, as the United States attorney for the Southern District of Indiana,” said Hogsett. “He is a man of integrity and ethics, proving time and time again that his commitment to our community was paramount in his decision-making and leadership. I want to thank him for his service and wish him well in this next chapter of his career.”

Minkler is a trimmer. Whatever serves the career. Why didn’t he leave years ago? Would he have left if Trump had won? Nah…

Obama does what Trump would do… get special treatment to the detriment of the environment.

One hopes the *ussy balless Democrats do more than blather about this swine.

From Mother Jones:

President-elect Joe Biden still hasn’t been recognized as the election winner by the General Services Administration because the administrator, Emily Murphy, has not “ascertained” that he won the election.

Biden did win. The race was called over a week ago. But until Murphy and the GSA certify the win—as Walter M. Shaub Jr. writes in the New York Review of Books—Biden is held back from receiving “$6.3 million dollars to the team, which is funded by public and private money; a loan of expanded federal office space and equipment; access to government agencies that will begin sharing information and records about ongoing activities, plans and vulnerabilities; national security briefings for the president; and other support.”

That could, you’d think, be helpful for a president walking into office as he deals with a massive economic crisis and a deadly pandemic. Even the most callous partisan should realize that. But Murphy has not budged. What makes her lack of action even scummier is that, as ABC News reported, Murphy seems to have personally ascertained that the Trump administration is indeed coming to an end:

Emily Murphy, head of the GSA, recently sent that message to an associate inquiring about employment opportunities in 2021, a move that some in Washington interpreted as at least tacitly acknowledging that the current administration soon will be gone.

Got it? When it helps Republicans, Biden won. But when it helps Biden—and the country—get ready to do the job, let Trump keep ranting.

Neo-slavery arrives, delivered by the Republicans.

Aloha Ms. Lennard:
May I suggest that one view, for argument’s sake, these attacks and restrictions as “badges” and/or “incidents” of slavery as forbidden in the 13th amendment in the sense that they restrict freedoms in the same way that slavery would have i.e. “You mus have massa’s permission in order to do X.” Taken individually one isn’t enslaved, but cumulatively they act like a slave code for those who were unfree during the time when slavery was legal–non-white, non-male, non-propertied. Is the parallel 100%, no but few parallels are 100%. “From above” white men’s freedom unrestricted, non-whites non-men freedoms are restricted. I have not perfected the argument nor assembled the evidence but my instincts tell me the parallels of “unfreedom” are profound.

You say “malarkey”. I say “malarky” let’s call the whole thing off.

Only after she made the signs did she realize she had made a mistake on one of them. It was the kind of mistake that could be made only in preparation for a Biden rally: She misspelled “malarkey” on a sign that declared, “No more malarky!”

“We can hold them off” Georgians of 1864 said the same thing to Jefferson Davis about Sherman just before “The March to the Sea”…

Mr. Purdue also shared concern about demographic changes in the state, according to the details provided to The Times. “We’ve added two and a half million new active voters in Georgia in the last six years,” he said. “They changed dramatically the face of the electorate in Georgia. Many of these new voters are from California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, and they’re not of the conservative persuasion.” But he said he was confident “we can hold them off.”

Fuck you Purdue. They are Americans. We have a constitution. You took an oath. Fulfill your promise or resign or be removed.

Lie your way into office, steal all you can, trash the place, torch it on the way out. They aren’t ‘government’, they are vandals and traitors inciting civil unrest.

Who was that masked man? Masklessness may result in a homicide. Covid–icide

Once you know this, it seems to me that if you go maskless, it is negligent homicide.

“This fucking virus,” Trump asked dismissively, “what does it have to do with me getting reelected?”

You can’t con a virus. Ignoring it doesn’t discourage it or make it go away.
