LOL - YouTube temporarily suspends, demonetizes OANN

https://www.axios.com/youtube-temporarily-suspends-demonetizes-oann-420e8ea9-66c1-4eab-9754-6e3b708483c9.html
Details: OANN's one-week suspension from posting new videos or livestreams is the result of a "strike" YouTube issued for violating its COVID-19 misinformation policy, which prohibits saying there is a guaranteed cure to the virus. YouTube took down the video that triggered the strike.

OANN is also suspended from the YouTube Partner Program, which means if it wants to monetize its videos again, it will have to re-apply.

YouTube has a three-strikes policy before an account is terminated. This is OANN's first strike, but it has violated the platform's COVID-19 misinformation policy before, meaning it gets no more warnings if it breaks the rules again — just additional strikes.

YouTube says it does not consider OANN an authoritative news source.



ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Biden's cabinet picks....so far - per CNN

EDIT - adding CNN link
https://www.cnn.com/politics/live-news/biden-trump-us-election-news-11-24-20/index.html







Here's who else has been tapped to serve in Biden's Cabinet:

Antony Blinken, Secretary of State
Linda Thomas-Greenfield, US Ambassador to the United Nations
Jake Sullivan, National Security Adviser
John Kerry, Special Presidential Envoy for Climate




Here are some key lines from the nominees' remarks in Delaware:

Antony Blinken, Secretary of State nominee

Blinken said that the US needs to proceed "with equal measures of humility and confidence" in working with other countries because "we can't solve all of the world's problems alone."

"We need to be working with other countries, we need their cooperation. We need their partnership," he said.
Blinken said the US has a "greater ability than any other country on Earth to bring others together to meet challenges of our time."

Alejandro Mayorkas, Homeland Security Secretary nominee

Mayorkas, who would become the first Latino to helm the department, said that the Department of Homeland Security has "a noble mission, to help keep us safe and to advance our proud history as a country of welcome."

Avril Haines, Director of National Intelligence nominee

Haines, who would become the first woman to lead the US intelligence community, said that Biden knows she has "never shied away from speaking truth to power," adding, "that will be my charge as director of national intelligence."

"I worked for you for a long time and I accept this nomination knowing that you would never want me to do otherwise and that you value the perspective of the intelligence community and that you will do so even when what I have to say may be inconvenient or difficult, and I assure you, there will be those times."
Linda Thomas-Greenfield, UN Ambassador nominee

Thomas-Greenfield, who has worked for 35 years in foreign service across four continents, said she likes to put a "cajun spin" on diplomacy.

"I called it gumbo diplomacy. Wherever I was posted around the world, I'd invite people of different backgrounds and beliefs to help me make a rue, chop onions for the holy trinity, and make homemade gumbo."
She added: "It was my way of breaking down barriers, connecting with people, and starting to see each other on a human level."

Jake Sullivan, National Security Adviser nominee

Sullivan noted that he served as Biden's national security adviser when he was vice president.

"I learned a lot about a lot, about diplomacy, about strategy, about policy. Most importantly about human nature. I watched him pair strength and resolve with humanity and empathy."
On Biden, he added, "That is the person America elected. That's also America at its best."

John Kerry, Climate Envoy nominee

Kerry said that in the fight against climate change "failure is not an option."

"Succeeding together means tapping into the best of American ingenuity, creativity, diplomacy, from brain power to alternative energy power, using every tool we have to get where we have to go," he said.

Kerry added: "No one should doubt the determination of this president and vice president, they shouldn't doubt the determination of the country that went to the moon, cured supposedly incurable diseases, and beat back global tyranny to win World War II."

Two fonts walked into a bar

Bartender says:

"Sorry, we don't serve your type."

I think I've reached that age....

I guess I've reached the age where I either just don't care or am unable to differentiate between a Big Mac at McD's and a Whopper at BK. I call everything a Whopper now.

ooof

Is *THIS* what triggered GSA Emily Murphy to release transition funds??

Over 100 CEOs threaten to cut off funds to Georgia GOP if Trump keeps blocking transition: report
Top Republican donors threaten to withhold donations to Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue if Trump doesn't concede
https://www.salon.com/2020/11/23/over-100-ceos-threaten-to-cut-off-funds-to-georgia-gop-if-trump-keeps-blocking-transition-report/
More than 100 business leaders who plan to ask the Trump administration to immediately allow the presidential transition to begin have also discussed cutting off donations to Senate Republicans facing runoff elections to force the party's hand.

The executives plan to send a letter on Monday demanding that Emily Murphy, the head of the General Services Administration, stop blocking President-elect Joe Biden's transition team's work, according to The New York Times.


...


Some of the executives have "also discussed withholding campaign donations from the two Republican Senate candidates in Georgia unless party leaders agree to push for a presidential transition," according to the report.

At least one executive said on a Friday call that some wealthy donors had already been considering withholding support to Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., and Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga.

Tweet o' the night!

Ok, Dolly Parton! The time is right. "Light of a Clear Blue Morning"



It's been a long dark night
And I've been a-waitin' for the mornin'
It's been a long hard fight
But I see a brand new day a-dawning

I've been looking for the sunshine
You know I ain't seen it in so long
But everything's gonna work out just fine
And everything's gonna be all right
That's been all wrong

'Cause I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything's gonna be all right
It's gonna be okay

It's been a long, long time (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Since I've known the taste of freedom
Those clinging vines (ooh, ooh, ooh)
That had me bound, well I don't need 'em, oh
I've been like a captured eagle
You know, an eagle's born to fly
Now that I have won my freedom
Like an eagle, I am eager for the sky

But I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything's gonna be all right
It's gonna be okay

I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
It's gonna be okay

But I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
It's gonna be okay

And I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning

Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right
Everything's gonna be all right

It's gonna be okay

Former Michigan Republican senator destroyed during election certification meeting

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/11/former-michigan-republican-senator-destroyed-during-election-certification-meeting/amp/
Michigan held its electors’ meeting to certify the state’s election on Monday, only to be flooded with conspiracy theories. At the same time, a Republican member of the Michigan Board of State Canvassers even pushed the false idea that he can refuse to certify the election.

At one point, former Michigan Republican Sen. Patrick Colbeck ranted that electronic voting “computers were connected to the internet.” He alleged that because tabulators were connected they were “attempting to subvert the election and hide the fact that they were doing so.”

Democratic member, Julie Matuzak, finally cut into his rant telling Colbeck “If you have evidence of fraud, have you submitted it to the Attorney General?”

Colbeck said he hasn’t submitted anything to the attorney general.
