Live in Florida? You might be seeing this around a lot - Stone for Senate


I wonder how tall General Austin is? He towers over everybody!

I prefer a civilian SecDef but Joe says Austin is going to have civilian advisors and staff and this is the way they both want it. He strikes me as a stellar person.

On the contrary, everything adds up about Giuliani's coronavirus. It's called privilege.


Giuliani said he had exactly the same treatment as the president.

“Exactly the same. His doctor sent me here, talked me into it. I didn’t really want to go to the hospital and he said don’t be stupid, we can get it over in three days if we send you to the hospital.”

The average American wouldn't even be given a hospital bed unless they were in extremely bad condition. Regeneron is available but your doctor has to approve it and be able to get it.

Omg, California had 26, 575 new cases of COVID today

Every other state has 8,000+ on down. I don't know if it's because they're testing more or what. On previous days California and Texas have been about the same but today Texas had 7, 664 new cases.


Think PBS NewsHour did this on purpose?


Heidi Stirrup, an official serving as
President rump’s
eyes and ears at the DOJ, has been banned from the building after trying to pressure staffers to give up sensitive information about election fraud, three people familiar with the matter tell the AP.

Boris Johnson losing grip on 'red wall' seats, poll shows

Boris Johnson is losing his grip on many of the seats in the English north and midlands that won him his parliamentary majority last year, a new poll has found.

Battered by perceptions of mishandling coronavirus and his decision to stand by embattled aide Dominic Cummings, the prime minister would lose 36 out of the 45 seats he took the last election, according to the survey by JL Partners. The constituencies are seen as a key battleground at the next election, set for 2024, because they were the source of most Tory gains last year.

Mr Johnson himself has a slightly negative rating of -2 per cent in the so-called "red wall" constituencies, compared to his chancellor Rishi Sunak who has +33 per cent. Labour leader Keir Starmer had a corresponding score of +7 per cent.

While the prime minister is a slight drag on support for his party, the least popular members of the prime minister's cabinet in the seats are Home Secretary Priti Patel (-34 per cent), followed by the PM's former Vote Leave comrade Michael Gove (-28 per cent).


This is banana republic stuff but it's par for the course with an authoritarian leader

WASHINGTON (AP) — The last throes of Donald Trump’s presidency have turned ugly — even dangerous.

Death threats are on the rise. Local and state election officials are being hounded into hiding. A Trump campaign lawyer is declaring publicly that a federal official who defended the integrity of the election should be “drawn and quartered” or simply shot.

“I do not think this goes away on January 20,” Eric Coomer, security director for Dominion Voting Systems, said from the secret location where is hiding out from death threats. “I think it will continue for a long time.”

Far-right chat rooms posted his photo, details about his family and address. “The first death threats followed almost immediately,” he told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “For the first couple days it was your standard online Twitter threats, ‘hang him, he’s a traitor.’” But then came targeted phone calls, text messages and a handwritten letter to his father, an Army veteran, from a presumed militia group saying: “How does it feel to have a traitor for a son?” Even now, weeks later and relocated to a secret locale, Coomer is getting messages from people saying they know what town he has fled to and vowing to find him.

“It’s terrifying,” he said. “I’ve worked in international elections in all sorts of post-conflict countries where election violence is real and people end up getting killed over it. And I feel that we’re on the verge of that.”


Florida man punches cab driver, screams 'I'm Rick James, b--ch!'

He’s a super freak.

A 6-foot-3, 300-pound Florida man was arrested after he allegedly punched a cab driver, then danced in the street yelling, “I’m Rick James, b--ch!”

The suspect, Paul Kijek, also shouted, “You white motherf--kers,” before he was arrested just 2 miles from his Clearwater, Fla., home over the weekend. A Pinellas County arrest affidavit identified the 50-year-old as a white male.

According to police, witnesses at Back Bar and Lounge stopped Kijek from driving home from that venue “due to his level of intoxication” shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday.

Joe's got to wear a walking boot for a couple weeks because of hairline fractures
