Mike Pompeo, Robert C. O'Brien and 2 dozen trumpers BANNED by China

China imposed sanctions on former Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and other Trump administration officials even as Joe Biden was being inaugurated as president, saying they had made “crazy moves” that harmed U.S.-China ties.

Also on the list of 28 people being sanctioned were former President Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien and his deputy Matt Pottinger, trade adviser Peter Navarro, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft, according to a statement issued Wednesday by China’s Foreign Ministry as the inauguration for Biden was taking place. They and their families will be banned from entering China, Hong Kong or Macau, or doing business with China.



"Reclaiming my time." - America

did trump pay Jenna Ellis's legal bills or did he stiff her too

been waiting to find out

I mean - I doubt he paid her a penny

See if this doesn't touch your soul in these times - Bono's fan letter to Public Enemy

I guess it's been published for some time, but I just heard it on the U2 channel as I was coming home from shopping today and I almost had to pull over because I wanted to absorb it fully.

Public Enemy – Fight The Power

Dear Public Enemies,

When this came out it was as if Ferrari had designed a steamroller made of sound fuelled by rage.

As if slavery was finally ending in America and the truth about it being faced in furious rhyme.

As if 35 years of cultural history was being trashed, statues being pulled down, effigies burned, scales falling from people's eyes and new roads appearing to take us to the future, seemingly being built overnight. Slavery wasn’t ending though… and some things actually got worse… but just for a second we glimpsed something.

What The Sex Pistols are to punk, Public Enemy are to hip hop.

The ones to melt and rearrange your brain, bamboozle your elders and help you find your tribe.

The sheer excitement of this record. It’s exciting even to think about! It’s more rock’n’roll than rock’n’roll. Its unapologetic anger and its anarchic thirst for change, for justice, for freedom and for fun…

When they were building this magnificent machine of a track all those years ago I believe that Chuck D believed that hip hop was going to take over the world.

What a mad idea…. oh, look!

Proud to have known you,


PS Remember when there was a ban on Public Enemy playing in Los Angeles and we offered the special guest slot to you downtown at the Coliseum? We told the label, we told the management, even the cops, that everything would be OK… and it was, if you call the sight of a scaffold being erected with the KKK members’ effigy on it OK.


Bono introduced it like this: "Before I was a musician, a performer.... I was a fan."

Biden's to-do list for Day 1: Rescind Muslim travel ban, rejoin Paris, begin child reunification...

Frank Figliuzzi on MSNBC just now: worried about a permanent, violent civil war

that these semi-organized cells of trumpers will try to commit ongoing acts of terrorism against soft targets for years

including bombings, etc.

Then we have a civil war that will be very very difficult to stop.

Houston police officer Tam Pham resigns, hires lawyer after attending US Capitol riot


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Former Houston Police Officer Tam Pham has resigned, a day after being publicly identified as having been at the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riots.


Speaking briefly outside his home this afternoon, Pham asked for the privacy of his family to be respected. He then went inside without answering any reporter questions.


Acevedo said he received the tip from a citizen about a Houston police officer seen in images of the Capitol siege. Acevedo said he opened Facebook and found images of the officer, who traveled alone, Acevedo said.

"I can't tell you the anger I feel at the thought of a police officer and other police officers thinking they get to storm the Capitol," he added."

Trump Warns: It Would Be ‘Very Bad’ if My Police, Biker Gang Fans Decided to Get ‘Tough’ on My Opponents

President Trump issued a bizarre, indirect warning Monday that his supporters could get “tough” on his political enemies at a “certain point,” in a clip of a Breitbart interview spotted Thursday by The Toronto Star. “You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny,” the president told Breibart’s Matthew Boyle. “I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump–I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough—until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”


As usual the media response was "meh" and "that's just trump being trump."
