Donald explodes at Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee for some reason

“I spent virtually no time with Senators Mike Lee of Utah, or Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, talking about the 2020 Presidential Election Scam or, as it is viewed by many, the ‘Crime of the Century.’ Lindsey and Mike should be ashamed of themselves for not putting up the fight necessary to win. Look at the facts that are coming out in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and other States. If this were Schumer and the Democrats, with the evidence we have of Election Fraud (especially newly revealed evidence), they would have never voted to approve Biden as President, and had they not, all of the mistakes that were made over the last month, which are destroying our Country, would not have happened. Mike Lee, Lindsey Graham, and all of the other Republicans who were unwilling to fight for the Presidency of the United States, which would have included at least an additional four Republican Senators, two in Georgia, one in Michigan, one in Arizona, are letting the Dems get away with the greatest Election Hoax in history-a total con job!”

“We are losing our Country! The Democrats are vicious and fight like hell, and the Republicans do nothing about it. RINOs fight harder against Republicans than they do against Democrats. They want to be so politically correct, even if that means losing our Country, which is happening now. The evidence on determinative and wide-ranging Election Fraud is staggering. Your Republican Presidential candidate won in a landslide, but has so little backing from Republican ‘leadership.’ They should be ashamed of themselves. Why don’t they have hearings? Or even if just Republicans had open public sessions, we would all hear the irrefutable facts! Remember, the Fake News Media does not report the truth!” – Statement from the Orange Pharaoh.

Call it “Carlson White”–Scientists create the whitest white ever

Purdue University scientists have created a paint so white, it could lead to reduced use of air conditioning because of its heat reflective properties, the Des Moines Register reports.  The white is so white, it’s made the Guinness Book of World Records as the whitest white ever produced.

Purdue researchers were looking to develop a white paint that could reduce the amount of sunlight absorbed by buildings in a way that didn’t require power, thereby lowering the need for air conditioning within the structure.  According to the scientists, The paint reflects 98.1% of solar radiation while also emitting infrared heat.

Researchers believe that if the paint was used to cover a 1,000 square foot roof, it could result in a 10 kilowatt reduction in power usage in the structure, more than consumed by air conditioners in most homes.  “When we started this project about seven years ago, we had saving energy and fighting climate change in mind,” said Xiulin Ruan, a professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue.

Boris Johnson tells world leaders to grow up and deal with climate

In a United Nations address, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson compared humanity to a petulant 16-year-old — “just old enough to get ourselves into serious trouble”–and that humankind must stop trashing the planet and address climate change, the Associated Press reports.

“We have come to that fateful age when we know roughly how to drive and we know how to unlock the drinks cabinet and to engage in all sorts of activity that is not only potentially embarrassing but also terminal,” Johnson said.  “We believe that someone else will clear up the mess we make, because that is what someone else has always done,” he added. “We trash our habitats again and again with the inductive reasoning that we have got away with it so far, and therefore we will get away with it again.”

Johnson will host a UN climate meeting in Glasgow, Scotland in November when leaders will review the climate crisis worldwide.  Calling the United Kingdom “the Saudi Arabia of wind,” Johnson has led the effort in his nation to have net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

“You can take my military pension, but you can’t take my FREEDUM!!!”

“I’ve spent 18 years active duty service,” former Lt. Col. Doug Hague tells Fox News host and actualized Flintstones character Sean Hannity, explaining why he’s resigning his commission rather than getting the coronavirus vaccine mandated by the military.  “I’ve got two years until I’m eligible to pull my retirement, um, but I’m, I don’t want the COVID vaccine and, uh, I don’t plan on getting it.  But I’ve had all the other, um, Army vaccines.  I’ve had eight anthrax shot.  I’ve had the smallpox vaccination.  I’ve had ’em all, s-so it’s really not about if I’ll get the shot, but this is really about, um, the freedom of the American people, the right to choose your own medical procedures, the right to decide, y’know, what’s gonna be, uh, injected into your, your body and what’s not.  Those are, um, that’s a natural human right, y’know we can’t take away from people.”

To recap:  the guy who got eight anthrax shots won’t get the coronavirus vaccine mandated by the military (to which you give control of your body when you enlist) because something something civilians something freedom.

Trump tries to pull the “But I President” card in Twitter lawsuit

“Trump’s lawyers told a federal court tonight that Twitter’s forum-selection agreement — which requires that he sue the company in California (not Florida, where he sued) — does not apply to him ‘as the 45th President of the United States.’ … Trump’s argument seems to be that his Twitter account was actually operated on behalf of the government, inasmuch as he made announcements about policy. And Twitter’s TOS don’t apply to government entities that cannot accept venue limitations. … But if the court accepts the argument that Trump’s Twitter account became a thing operated by and for the U.S. government, that would seem to open up the big question of why Trump, a private citizen, would have standing to sue over it.” —Brad Heath of Reuters

Judge dismisses sex assault cases against Ohio State

Saying that Ohio State University failed the victims of sexual abuse at the hands of a doctor for sports teams and “today, legal system also fails [the] Plaintiffs,” a federal judge on Wednesday dismissed dozens of lawsuits against the university because the statute of limitations for the claims has expired, the Associated Press reports.

Ohio State has settled hundreds of cases brought by the male victims of sexual assault by now-deceased team doctor Richard Strauss when he was affiliated with the school from 1979 to 2018.  The allegations against Strauss have led to claims that Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan, an assistant coach for the school’s wrestling team from 1987 to 1995, knew about the abuse and ignored the plight of the students.

“For decades, many at Ohio State tasked with protecting and training students and young athletes instead turned a blind eye to Strauss’s exploitation,” U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson wrote in one ruling. “From 1979 to 2018, Ohio State utterly failed these victims. Plaintiffs beseech this Court to hold Ohio State accountable, but today, the legal system also fails Plaintiffs.”

FDA approves Pfizer vaccine for booster shot for elderly, unhealthy

A third dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a booster for elderly patients and those with existing health conditions and other severe illnesses, NBC News reports.

Boosters are recommended to be administered at least six months after the patient received the second dose of the two-shot Pfizer vaccine regimen.  An advisory committee for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is holding a two-day meeting during which they will decide what conditions qualifies for the recommended third dose.

Known as the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the CDC panel will provide final approval for the booster shot.  An FDA panel last week declined to approve a general rule for booster shots for all people currently qualified for vaccines, those 12 years old and older because of a lack of clinical data, but it did approve Pfizer boosters for those 65 and older.

Biden calls Macron to smooth over insulted French sensibilities

The French government has promised to restore its ambassador to the United States after President Joe Biden phoned French President Emmanuel Macron Wednesday afternoon to address French concerns about an Australian submarine program, the Associated Press reports.

The United States entered into an agreement with Australia to build new nuclear submarines for the Australian navy as part of an Indo-Pacific defense pact with Britain.  The arrangement prompted the Australian government to cancel a previous deal with France to build diesel-electric submarines, a contract worth billions.

Biden talked to Macron to reinforce the alliance between their two nations, the longest-held alliance in American history.  After the half-hour call, the White House released a photo of Biden smiling during the conversation and called the call “friendly.”

Richmond, Virginia dedicates new Emancipation and Freedom Monument two weeks after Robert E Lee statue removed

A new monument dedicated to the abolition of slavery was dedicated in Richmond, Virginia on Wednesday, CNN reports. The 12 foot tall bronze statue depicts a Black Virginian family celebrating their liberation from being treated like farm animals by the ideological forebears (and often the actual ancestors) of members of the modern Republican Party. The site of the new Emancipation and Freedom Monument is roughly two miles away from where the Robert E Lee participation trophy stood until recently. Why the new monument was not placed at former Lee site or what the city’s plans are for it was not elaborated upon in CNN’s article, so we’ll keep an eye out for any updates. The Lee statue itself was scrapped and its parts mothballed at a Virginia women’s prison.

Nearly 6% of students in Maryland county quarantined with COVID

In rural Carroll County, Maryland, about 30 miles west of Baltimore, nearly six percent of students in the school district have been quarantined because they either have coronavirus or been exposed to a case, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The Carroll County Public School system’s online dashboard shows 1,221 students absent from school because of coronavirus, some who have tested positive and others with close contact.  There are more than 24,500 students in the district.

Carroll County refused to institute a mask mandate even while state education leaders put a mask recommendation in place prior to the start of the school year, the only county in the region to do so.  The state’s general assembly enacted a school mask mandate last week.

High school dropout paid rent and utilities using campaign funds

“Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) used campaign funds to pay rent and utilities bills, according to a filing her campaign made Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission. The submission claims the lawmaker already has reimbursed the campaign and that those transactions will appear on a report due in October. The Boebert campaign’s original filing for the second quarter of 2021 included four disbursements to Venmo, totaling $6,650, with a vague description: ‘Personal expense of Lauren Boebert billed to campaign account in error. Expense has been reimbursed.'”

“In August, the FEC asked the campaign for more details about the payments. At the time, Boebert’s spokesperson, Jake Settle, would only describe the purchases to Forbes as ‘personal expenses.’ On Tuesday, though, the campaign submitted an amended report for that quarter. Two of the disbursements, each for $2,000, are now described as ‘Rent billed to campaign via Venmo in error,’ while the other two were categorized as ‘rent/utilities.’ The document reiterated that all four transactions have been reimbursed” – Forbes.

Republican Michigan lawmaker needs to be chaperoned on House floor after ex-girlfriend Dem colleague files restraining order

MLive.com: “A Michigan lawmaker accused of harassing his colleague will need to be escorted by House sergeants to the House floor and his office to prevent potential violations of a personal protection order, according to a spokesperson for House Speaker Jason Wentworth. State Rep. Steve Marino, R-Harrison Township, is legally allowed to come to the House floor for work despite a personal protection order recently granted to fellow Rep. Mari Manoogian, D-Birmingham, Wentworth spokesperson Gideon D’Assandro said. Marino has been asked to inform House sergeants when he comes into either the Capitol or House Office Building and remain confined to his desk, in the House Republican caucus room or on his floor of the House Office Building.”

“He will need to be escorted by a sergeant when heading to his office or the House floor ‘just to make sure that there’s no contact between the two,’ D’Assandro said. ‘He can be here for caucus meetings and votes. That’s what’s allowed under the law.’ Marino was not present on the House floor Tuesday for session, a decision D’Assandro said was Marino’s choice. Manoogian was present.”

Alabama Secretary of State says MyPillow asshat is full of shit

“Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill is disputing claims cybercriminals ‘flipped’ 100,000 votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. The claims came from Mike Lindell, the founder of MyPillow and a Trump adviser. Lindell has been touring states in an effort to prove the election was stolen from Trump via computer manipulation. He visited Merrill and Gov. Kay Ivey last week, saying he planned to run ‘tests’ on the state’s voter rolls” AL.com reports

“In a video posted online Sunday, Lindell said while Alabama is a ‘role model as to how elections should go,’ its voting system was ‘hacked, just like every other state,’ possibly by accessing machines remotely through Bluetooth technology. Lindell did not offer any evidence of his claims in the video or provide details on who he thought was involved. ‘This was the one time we’re going to have to do a little bit of a deeper dive here. On the surface you can’t see where it happened,” Lindsell said. ‘What I guarantee they’ve had to do in Alabama is the bad people…went deeper into the well. Very deep into the well of how they did the flips.’ Lindell’s data said 100,000 votes were changed in the state and ‘every single county was affected.’ Merrill said that’s not possible. ‘All our (voting) machines are custom-built. There’s no modem component. You can’t influence them through a cell phone or a landline. There’s no way they can be probed or numbers manipulated’”

Capitol riot committee to start subpoenaing Trump minions: report

“The House select committee investigating the 6 January attack on the US Capitol is considering issuing a blitz of subpoenas for top Trump White House aides including the former chief and deputy chief of staff, according to a source familiar with the matter. The subpoenas – which are expected to be authorized as early as this week – would place House select committee investigators inside the White House and Trump campaign war rooms at the time of the insurrection as the panel prepares to ramp up the pace of its inquiry” The Guardian reports.

“House minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s claimed it would be illegal for telecom companies to comply with the investigation’s records requests. House select committee investigators are considering subpoenas for call detail records or testimony of key aides including former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino and former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, the source said. The scope and subjects of the subpoenas are not yet finalized and discussions about who to include in the first tranche are still ongoing, the source said, although the three Trump officials are presently considered likely targets.”

Those poor people Biden screwed when he pulled troops from Afghanistan are terrorists and they aren’t welcome here: GOP

“As the U.S. resettles tens of thousands of Afghan refugees following a frenetic military withdrawal that Republicans condemned, their party is still struggling for a unified response. The Donald Trump-inspired right flank of the party is veering toward an anti-refugee message with nativist undertones, warning that assistance to Afghans fleeing their nation’s fall to the Taliban risks an influx of unvetted new arrivals. And the political oxygen that small but vocal number of Republicans consume is overshadowing colleagues with a more nuanced take on the impending refugee crisis. As a pool of potential refugees grows, ‘there’s always concerns that a terrorist organization can take advantage of a mass movement of people,’ Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chair Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said. ‘But I don’t know how that gets better by not providing funding for it.'”

“The House-passed funding bill includes $6.3 billion in emergency spending to assist Afghans seeking asylum in the U.S. It’s set to stall in the Senate as Democrats labor to avert a government shutdown later this month, raise the federal borrowing limit and fund disaster recovery efforts. Although Republicans opposed the funding bill regardless of the provisions on Afghan refugee resettlement, they still see the Biden administration’s rocky Afghanistan withdrawal as a winning issue and want to use its stumbles to raise questions about whether resettled allies can be properly vetted given the chaos of the U.S. military pullout. Yet some of that messaging is being undermined by echoes of xenophobia from Republicans who suggest that Afghan refugees should be settled in countries where they can be with people who share the same values” – Politico.
