Texas GOP candidate bashes Chinese immigrants over coronavirus: 'I don't want them here at all'

[link:https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/04/02/coronavirus-covid-live-updates-us/|
At a political forum on Wednesday, GOP congressional candidate Sery Kim falsely suggested that Chinese immigrants bring the coronavirus to the United States — and suggested that she opposes their entry to the country.
“I don’t want them here at all,” Kim, who is Korean American, told attendees, speaking of Chinese immigrants and China in general, the Dallas Morning News reported. “They steal our intellectual property, they give us coronavirus, they don’t hold themselves accountable.”
Kim, 42, also argued that a rising surge in violence and threats against Asian Americans has been trumped up by the media, saying that “Asians have always faced violence. It’s not worse than before.”

Trump debated Putin several times. The transcripts are still classified.

This ad using President Biden to attack "Democratic Socialists" aired this morning on Morning Joe.

If I didn’t know better, and as of now I don’t, this seems a Roger Stone class dirty trick. Who and what is the “Don’t Bankrupt New York Coalition” that sponsored the ad?https://share.icloud.com/photos/0yFvGmo229rTY427tLpWruqjg

Wyoming governor quietly mobilized Guard troops in Cheyenne

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — While the Wyoming National Guard was sending more than 100 troops to Washington, D.C., to help with security around President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, Gov. Mark Gordon quietly mobilized dozens of Guard troops and others in case of violence at the state Capitol in Cheyenne.

The all-but-undisclosed local deployment Jan. 15-21, specifics of which came to light Friday after an inquiry by The Associated Press, stood in stark contrast with the state’s contribution to U.S. Capitol security praised by Gordon and other top Wyoming officials.

“Thank you to the @wyoguard members who are serving our country by providing support at today’s Presidential inauguration. Wyomingites are grateful for your service,” Gordon, a Republican, tweeted on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

Trickle up economics works!

Residents of Stockton, Calif., who received $500 a month from a first-of-its-kind guaranteed-income program were more likely to find full-time jobs, be happy and stay healthy, according to a year-long study published Wednesday.
Supporters of universal income programs — which provide regular, unconditional payments from the government to people — say the findings should dispel common criticisms of the idea, such as that money with no strings attached disincentivizes people to work or encourages them to spend it on drugs and alcohol. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03/03/stockton-universal-basic-income/

China has denied that it required US diplomats to undergo anal swab tests for coronavirus.

Anal swabs involve inserting a cotton swab 3-5cm (1.2-2.0 inches) into the anus and gently rotating it.

It is not known how many US diplomats may have had the test.

"The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it," a state department spokesperson told Vice News on Wednesday.

The State Department added that it was told by Beijing that the test was given "in error".

Trump Says Cruz Cheated, Wants Results Overturned

The past is prologue. The Tempest, Act 2, Scene I.

Plus his wife is ugly and his dad killed JFK.

Mitch and Pence are getting dragged by the freepers:

The Trump Insurrection was predicted by Babylon 5

President Clark and Trump Scorched America?
10-15-2020, 03:37 PM

First of all I want to say that I hope I do not offend anyone with this topic. I'm not an American, but I have seen what has been happening in the U.S. this year (2020).

I was watching the episode End Game of Babylon 5. As we know, when the game was essentially up for Clark, he turned Earth's Defence Grid onto Earth and left the message "Scorched Earth".

With things so volatile in the U.S., does anyone think that the same kind of mentality might happen after the current U.S. Election?

Such severe rioting could be triggered by either side's supporters. Worse case is that some comments could come from President Trump (if he loses) that could be viewed as a rallying cry for his hard core supporters. I'm really hoping that if President Trump in fact does lose the election that he doesn't send out Tweets indicating something like "Liberate America" and viewed as a rallying cry.

I hope I'm wrong, but I think the potential of severe violence might be there.

Any thoughts?
