Email to a friend in WI . State Rep. Treig Pronschinske you can't see the virus you can't stop it.

Don’t you guys have schools in Wisconsin? Is the the term microbe now French, gay, and socialist?


Republican legislators in Wisconsin are advancing a bill to prevent businesses from requiring proof of vaccination, in part because, according to State Rep. Treig Pronschinske, "if you can't see the virus ... how can you stop it? How? You physically cannot see the virus.”

Other things you can not see. Oxygen so please no breathing in Wisconsin, you can’t see electrons so do have any of those fancy electric lights @ Green Bay football games, and do not cook your brats in Sheboygan on gas grills because you can’t see a CH4 molecule.

So the Republicans/Trump tried to use forged documents to show they won the states that they lost?

On Rachel tonight.

Hey, A.G. Garland is it time to charge those bastards w/something? You already have their names
and signatures from the forged documents. Send out the FBI 1st thing tomorrow morning and pick
up all the people who signed off on that fraud.

In 1939 the Nazis dressed up German soldiers as Polish troops and then claimed those "Polish Soldiers"
had invaded Germany and took over a radio station.

You can thank TFG for this Pandemic nightmare.

May 2018 The Trump Administration disbands the White House pandemic response team.

July 2019 The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) epidemiologist embedded in China’s disease control agency left the post, and the Trump Administration eliminated the role.


President Obama on Sidney Poitier /Sorry if somebody else has already posted this.


BTW look at how tall all 3 are.

Kamala Harris speech right now. Her best ever or the best I have ever seen he do.

I loves me some K-Bomb! What a class act. No wonder "they" are working so hard to
try to "Hillary" her. If she is the future then I feel good about our future.

BTW President Biden is "bringing it" right now too. "Sitting in the White House dinning room,
watching it all, and doing nothing."

Possible new names for the Washington Football Team

The Washington Insurrectionists or the Capitol Stormers?

Personally I like the Fighting Faucis.

I still have trust in Rochelle Walensky and think she is the right person for the job. President...

... Biden has more than shown me that he is the right man for the job as POTUS right now and if he has her
back then that is good enough for me. Things, situations, and data can change during this pandemic and so
the responses to what is happening might have to change to.


Time: CDC Director Rochelle Walensky Faces a Surging Virus—And a Crisis of Trust

If viruses know no borders, they
 have an equal disdain for human holidays. On Thanksgiving 2021, Dr. Rochelle Walensky shut off her phone for about 45 minutes and placed the turkey on the dining table to enjoy the holiday meal with her husband and three sons. When she turned the phone back on, she found, among the messages that had piled up, warnings that SARS-CoV-2 had morphed into a potentially dangerous new variant, identified in South Africa. Health officials there predicted that what would become known as the Omicron variant was much better at spreading than previous variants, and Walensky knew it was only a matter of time before Omicron cases would appear in the U.S.

As director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Walensky’s job is to protect the nation, and by extension the world, from threats like this one. To buy time as she and the country’s public-health experts learned as much as they could about the new variant, she joined them in advising that flights from South Africa and nearby nations reporting cases be temporarily halted. She also beefed up genetic-sequencing efforts to monitor for the new variant so health officials would know as soon as the first cases hit the country.

By Christmas, Omicron had overtaken Delta as the dominant variant, accounting for almost 60% of new infections in the nation, and over that holiday weekend, Walensky and the country’s top COVID-19 experts wrestled with a difficult decision. With thousands of flights canceled as airline staff tested positive for COVID-19 and were unable to work, and with hospitals, schools and food industries similarly tottering under the pressure of maintaining an adequate labor force as Omicron pulled employee after employee into the COVID-19-positive ranks, Walensky and the CDC made the critical, and controversial, decision to cut the isolation times for people who were infected by half, from 10 days to five. Business groups supported the change, which provided a release valve on their increasing labor problems, but health care workers and certain labor unions pushed back, arguing that employees would be compelled to work while potentially still contagious, which could lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

Walensky defended the move, telling TIME, “There are a lot of studies [from other variants] that show the maximum transmissibility is in those first five days. And [with Omicron] we are about to face hundreds of thousands more cases a day, and it was becoming very, very clear from the health care system that we would have people who were [positive but] asymptomatic and not able to work, and that was a harbinger of what was going to come in all other essential functions of society.” The decision reflects the balancing act that Walensky has been performing since becoming director of the CDC last January: integrating the scientific reality that an infectious and quickly adapting virus ideally requires intensive lockdown with the economic and social realities that make it impossible to do so for lengthy periods of time. In addition, Walensky confronts another equally monumental task: restoring the public’s trust in science, and educating people about the iterative nature of science so they don’t see changing recommendations as so confusing and conflicting that they stop listening.


Today is a very bad day for TFG. Enjoy "He will never have another good day."

I imagine it as a chilling final turn of the plot. His world is coming to an end. He will never have another good day. Loser label will haunt him. The law will pursue him. Mental illness will hobble him. His properties will bankrupt him.


1) Do we now have the Russian who was behind the 2016 hack of our elections? Guess it wasn’t all just “FAKE NEWS”

"election manipulation attempts” Trump has all but admitted to this with a quote like, “Do people really think that Russia hacked our election by getting into our voting machines?” VERY ROUGH QUOTE

U.S. Catches Kremlin Insider Who May Have Secrets of 2016 Hack - BFD!


This is also being reported by Bloomberg, which has a paywall.

Sources close to the Kremlin and Russia's intelligence sources believe Klyushin has access to documents related to the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton allies, Bloomberg News reported.

According to the Bloomberg report, Klyushin was approached by U.S. and British spy agencies in the years before he left Russia by private jet for a ski trip with his family in Switzerland. People characterized the extradition as a 'serious intelligence blow' to the Kremlin.

If he has documents central to the election hack, Klyushin could try to leverage the information about the election hack in exchange for leniency in the financial crimes he is charged with carrying out.

2) Is Ivanka going to rat out daddy?

Ivanka Trump drops a bombshell that could spell trouble for her dad in the January 6th investigation.

this is sweet

3) 'This is bad news for Trump': Reporter reveals new Jan. 6 info (CNN)

CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel and CNN political commentator Scott Jennings react to new information that there are "multiple sources" with firsthand knowledge of former President Donald Trump's activities during the Capitol insurrection on January 6.

A 3 star general and a lifelong republican, Gen. Kellogg has testified to the Jan. 6th committee and he was with Trump on 1/6/21 and saw Trump refusing to call off his thugs.

4) New York’s Attorney General has subpoenaed Ivanka & Don Jr.

New York A.G. Seeks to Question Trump Children in Fraud Inquiry

Source: NY Times

Subheading: The attorney general, Letitia James, has subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump as part of a civil investigation.

Jan. 3, 2022 Updated 11:38 a.m. ET

The New York State attorney general’s office, which last month subpoenaed Donald J. Trump as part of a civil investigation into his business practices, is also seeking to question two of his adult children as part of the inquiry.

The involvement of the children, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump, was disclosed in a court document filed on Monday as the Trump Organization sought to block lawyers for the attorney general, Letitia James, from questioning the former president and his children.

The subpoenas for the former president and two of his children were served on Dec. 1, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Eric Trump, another of Mr. Trump’s sons, was already questioned by Ms. James’s office in October 2020.

The attorney general’s effort to interview Mr. Trump under oath became public last month, but it was not previously known that her office, which has been conducting a civil investigation into the former president’s business practices for almost three years, was also looking to question Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump.

#2 Dude aka Second Gentleman Doug and his New Year's goals ... Take a hike


The man is a class act and a good American too.

BTW to all the right wing idiots he must be really scary. Liberal, Jewish, a lawyer, loves black woman,
and supports LGBT rights. I wonder if a President Biden or Harris could put him on the SCOTUS?

Now how come they were able to make the vaccine so quickly?

Say hello to "The Big Dog" and his support for the Human Genome Project.
BTW I am sure that republicans were opposed to it too. (but I don't want to waste my time looking
up the trash that Newt Gingrich or other shits said in the '90s)
