A heads up DUers... in coming disrupters.

The ugly stepsister site JPR seems to be effectively off line the past 4 or 5 days. Every post comes up as unavailable including the site administrators information.

Not too long ago there were posts on JPR stating they would possibly be going off line if they got too much attention from the media and/or were possibly investigated because of their pro Russian views and propaganda.

Look for an influx of trolls and anti democratic posts due to returning disrupters and possible Russian trolls.

Many of us remember the last time and will be watchful.

Be strong, be aware, be ready.

Update: The internet is forever. www.archive.org has hundreds of JPR posts from this year alone.

NEW UPDATE on covid in the home and a plea.

My sister and daughter have recovered well from their bout with covid but are left with lingering coughs. I truly believe that the vaccine saved my sisters life. I stayed negative through it all and think I dodged a major bullet.

Thank you all for your support and well wishes. Below is my fundraiser link for those with the ability to help but I understand that times are rough for everyone now.

Blessings all.


It's been a very rough couple of weeks with covid in the home.

My daughter still is testing positive well after 10 days, but symptoms are gone except for a lingering cough. My sister also did get it as well and has been sick for over a week. This has caused her to go to a covid dialysis site until its run its course. She is doing better now though but was very sick for a time.

Me, I'm still testing negative. I've quarantined myself to my room and only come out to use the bathroom and shower. My own private solitary hell with cold canned food, bread, cheese and bottled water.

Unfortunately, covid has also led to a stress related temporary disability taking me out of the job market until who knows when. Cant even leave home without panic attacks and have to rely on grocery delivery for my basic needs.

I have also been forced to apply for early Social Security and have started a GoFundMe page to raise rent and bill money (getting Snap for food already and a bit over $200 month from general relief) until the Social Security kicks in.

If anyone on DU can help out it would be greatly appreciated though I know many of you are in the same situations and state of mind.

Below is the link to the fundraiser and I'll keep you appraised of how things are going.

All of you here have been a great support and light at the end of a dark tunnel.

Thank you.



My daughter tested positive for covid.

My daughter, my sister (who is on dialysis), and I share an apartment.

People at her work started getting sick and she came down with a sore throat Saturday night. She has spent the last 3 days at her boyfriend's home and the test just came back today.

My sister is very immune compromised and now is coughing with sore throat and I am also at risk and feel a bit weak but no cough yet.

Will have to see if I can get tested tomorrow.

Please send all the positive energy you can. Very frightened.

Fuck all the antivaxers and may karma return upon them everything they deserve.


Thank you all for the well wishes and energy. I'll keep you all updated. Going to check on my sister and get some rest.

Goodnight DUers.

Just got a notification from the "Where's My Ballot?" site

that my California recall ballot had been recieved and counted.

Another big "HELL NO!" vote for recall.

Got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine...WOOHOO...

And my extension for unemployment finally went through (should of happened in January).

That with the stimulus and Biden being president , it's been a good month.

Wow! What everyone who still supports

tRump needs to hear.

Please share.

When the domestic terrorists smashed their way

into the capital building January 6, 2021, they were more than ready to cause destruction and violence. When they encountered Officer Brian Sicknick, they didn't care if he was a Democrat or a Republican. He was simply the enemy. They then, without a thought of who he was, of his loved ones and those dear to him at home, bashed his head in with a fire extinguisher

On the flipside, Officer Brian Sicknick didn't care whether the people in the building were Republicans or Democrats. He had taken an oath to protect them. All of them. People like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Amy Klobuchar, and hundreds of of other Senators and Congressmen and women on both sides of the
aisle. The few seconds he gave everyone in the chambers by giving up his own life may have been just the time needed to alert the danger, begin locking down and begin the evacuations.

I am at a loss to why this hasn't been stated here on DU before this. At least some of the terrorists were going to, at the least, take hostages. At the worst, take out the entire line of Succession. This didn't happen thank the Gods. But every second counted. And our country survived THIS exchange. We need brave people who at the right time do the right thing up to and including giving their lives for even strangers and political opposites. I have no more words to say (that wouldn't get my post hidden, that is) except RIP Officer Brian Sicknick.


Question for the legal eagles here at DU.

Can those charged in the violent insurrection and tresspass/vandalism of The Peoples House yesterday be charged with murder as at least one of the deaths occurred during the act of committing a felony?

What do DC laws say about this.

I went to Parler to check out the claims about requiring a ss number

to sign up. Right away I found this in their 'terms of service'.

(Bolding is mine)

So yes.... Many Parler members SS numbers and IDs probably where compromised if they chose to join the 'Influencer Network'. And what self respecting fascist and Trumpazoid wouldn't want to join such a fancy, powerful sounding network?

Tots and Pears idiots...

Edited to add: Any doubt that the Trumpazoids have about the security of Parler MUST be exploited. Their ingrained paranoia will be their downfall when all is said and done.

Sow the fields folks.....plant the doubt.


It's not clown surgery!

Undecided voters are like...
