School 'voucher' bill giving public money to private education passes Iowa Senate. KCRG.com

DUBUQUE, Iowa. (KWWL) --" A new bill has passed through the Iowa Senate that would take taxpayer money set aside for public schools and give it directly to parents who want to send their child to private schools as a 'scholarship'."

"After an hours-long debate, the bill passed Thursday evening by a vote of 26-21.

The fast-moving legislation is the end-result of a priority set by Governor Reynolds in this month's Condition of the State address.

The bill would make official her plan to provide $5,200 in state money directly to parents who want to send their kids to private or charter schools instead."
State Auditor Rob Sand issued a statement Thursday (the day the bill was to be brought to the Senate) which reads:
(A bill requiring oversight of the voucher money was rejected by Republican majority Senate.)
"Iowans should be alarmed that the proposal for vouchers contains no independent audit provision, and in fact no audit requirement whatsoever."

"The public will have little ability to see what is happening with their tax dollars, and less protection from fraud and abuse. The charter school proposal, by contrast, maintains audit provisions consistent with today’s rigorous requirements for public schools."

Iowa State Auditor Rob Sand
"We would have no oversight into how that money is spent," Sand told KWWL."

How GameStop Daytraders Gamed the System. NowThis


Humor: Bernie Sanders 'adopted' by Native Americans after Inauguration

"The Squeeze of a Lifetime" or The GameStop stock frenzy, explained. Vox

If I understand this right, Independent daytraders from a Reddit group ganged up to out smart "Old House Fund Managers" who were betting that GameStop would lose market value (by buying call options). The Independent Reddit Traders were buying shares and forcing the price up (buying stock and put options). In the end, Independent Reddit traders wound up bankrupting some "Old House"Fund managers who were betting the GameStop stocks would go down. Do I understand this correctly?

January 5 Meeting at Trump International Hotel Could Hold the Key to the January 6 Insurrection

January 5 Meeting at Trump International Hotel Could Hold the Key to the January 6 Insurrection
Seth Abramson

"Well after dark on January 5, 2021—just 15 hours before an insurrection against the United States government incited by the President of the United States—Nebraska Republican Charles W. Herbster, at the time the National Chairman of the Agriculture and Rural Advisory Committee for the Trump administration, attended a private meeting of Trump family members, Trump administration officials, Trump campaign advisers, January 6 organizers, and at least one member of the United States Senate at Trump International Hotel in Washington."
"In attendance at the large and only recently uncovered meeting, conducted “in the private residence of the President” at his hotel, were, according to Herbster’s account, the following individuals (Note: Donald Trump’s presence at the meeting, either in person or via speakerphone, as yet remains unclear, so his name is temporarily absent from this listing):

Donald Trump Jr., eldest son of the president

Eric Trump, second-eldest son of the president

Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor to the president

Peter Navarro, Assistant to the President, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and National Defense Production Act Policy Coordinator

Corey Lewandowski, 2016 Trump campaign manager

David Bossie, 2016 Trump deputy campaign manager

Adam Piper, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association

Tommy Tuberville, United States senator from the State of Alabama

According to research by political strategist and regular CNN, MSNBC, The Hill, CBS, and Fox News contributor Cheri Jacobus, Txtwire CEO Daniel Beck claims he was at the January 5 meeting also, and that additional attendees at the gathering included the following three people:

Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to the President of the United States

Kimberly Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.

Michael Lindell, Trump donor and MyPillow CEO

"In a Facebook post, Beck claims that there were “fifteen of us [who] spent the evening [January 5]” at Trump International Hotel in DC, a statement that tracks with the nine attendees listed by Herbster, the additional three referenced by Beck himself, and a photograph Beck took on January 5 in which he appears outside the hotel with an unidentified woman and three unidentified men, two wearing red “Make America Great Again” caps:

Guilfoyle’s presence at the meeting is critical given that Stop the Steal coordinator Ali Alexander claims he received a call from Guilfoyle during the evening of January 5—when she would have been with Trump’s family and advisers at Trump International. As for Tuberville, he now claims, contrary to the statements of Herbster and Beck, that he was never at the Trump International Hotel on January 5."
