Miller lied to congress this AM

Miller lied to congress this AM in trying to blame the media and how it would look bad if the D.C. National Guard responded to the coup/riot.

Prior to Miller’s stand down order on 1/4/21 the DC National Guard had the power to act autonomously to protect people, property, and the federal and local government if they saw a threat. If Miller hadn’t given the stand down order the DC National Guard would have been there PDQ. I believe Mike Flynn's brother was at the Pentagon on 1/6/21 and he too was blocking and or slowing up a National Guard response to the Trump Riot/Coup.

BTW How did he know that there was going to be a riot on 1/4/21? "To employ any riot control agents."

This memorandum responds directly to your January 4, 2021 memorandum regarding the District of Columbia request for District of Columbia National Guard (DCNG) support in response to planned demonstrations from January 5-6, 2021. You are authorized to approve the requested support, subject to my guidance below and subject to consultation with the Attorney General, as required by Executive Order 11485.

Without my subsequent, personal authorization, the DCNG is not authorized the following:

* To be issued weapons, ammunition, bayonets, batons, riot control agents or ballistic protection equipment such as helmets and body armor.

* To employ any riot control agents.

* To interact physically with protesters, except when necessary in self-defense or defense of others.

* Prohibited from sharing “equipment with law enforcement agencies” or seeking support from any non-DC National Guard units.

* Forbidden from conducting “searches, seizures, arrests, or other similar direct law enforcement activity.”

* Forbidden from using “Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance assets” or to conduct “Incident, Awareness and Assessment activities.”

* No helicopters or “any other air assets.”


This could be your house if the Chinese rocket hits it. But do not panic.

Good News Friday: Coronavirus task force update

110 million Americans have had both vaccines or the one and done J.J. shot. 33% of all Americans are now covered.

165 million Americans have had at least 1 shot. 50% of Americans have at least some coverage.

Joe is getting the job done and despite the republicans, Fox News, and other right wing talkers trying to
keep the virus going because of a political calculus that "they" would rather see people sick, dying, and the C-19
virus still spreading because they don't want Biden to get a win but still the tide is turning. And very soon
if you want to go to an Ohio State football game you will need to show proof that you have been vaccinated,
go to a restaurant show some proof, go to school show some proof, go to your job show some proof, and so

Those governors, Tucker Carlson, and Fox News will soon be in the dustbin of history. Go Joe!

Grown ups are back.

Trump and Cruz @ Merde Log Oh ... when you have absolutely no taste and your designer thinks ...

... Tom Kinkade was a great artist, who likes a breakfast of vodka and meth, he/she shops @ hobby lobby,
Lowes' Garden Center, and HSN you get this. I kind of do design for my work. Having stuff that matches
and repeats materials and colors is rule #1.

Bar to wood floor to a marble (I think) step, curtains, an aggregate (beach stones in mortar) walkway
w/brick edging, random plantings (tall in the back shorter in the front is the way it should be done), a
center piece that doesn't match anything, although the table cloth kind of matches the walkway.


The "wisdom" of Rudy. Lawyer par excellence.

"The biggest burden a lawyer can have is to represent an innocent man," he (Giuliani) added.



Thanx Joe! Over 40% of U.S. adults are fully vaccinated. 150 million Americans @ least one dose.

The United States is now averaging fewer than 50,000 new coronavirus cases per day, a level not seen since early October and a sign that the nation's mass vaccination program is having an impact on the pandemic.

In the week ending Sunday, the United States reported 344,463 cases. The daily average is down about 22,000 cases each day from a small peak seen three weeks ago. It's down much further from the records set in January; the United States is now reporting as many cases in a week as it was getting every two days then.

Helping the cause: Almost 150 million Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine, and over 40% of U.S. adults are fully vaccinated.


The dumb is back into Freedumb / Reaching 'Herd Immunity' Is Unlikely, Experts Now Believe*

@ one time we had an educated population that understood stopping polio and not having people
in iron lungs was a needed goal for the country. I remember in the 1960s on a weekend "us kids"
went to our elementary school and got our polio vaccine on sugar cubes.

DUer for the Freedumb smack.

Today was a very good day for me. I am rich.

I got to hug and hold my granddaughter, along with my daughter in law, and my son too.
1st time in almost a year. My D i L made a birthday dinner for my Mom's 90th birthday
@ her house not too far from where I live. I watched my mom and her great granddaughter
sit on the couch as they read, "Barnyard Dance" together.


What exactly are those clowns in Arizona doing looking @ the old ballots?

It will not change anything except for giving the Fox News watchers something to
re-enforce their already screwed up view of the world. The election is over and
Joe B. won the state, he is President and Mark Kelly is now an Arizona senator.

I hope this blows up in their faces.

Sorry for the

10 minutes of Randi Rhodes who ties it all together.

Ukraine, Rudy, Trump, and the rat fucking of our election in 2016 by James Comey.
