    In some good news for America, there are some signs the crackpots are less powerful.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz's PAC has some lackluster numbers.

    A Pro-Trump/ Anti-Vaxx rally headlined by Mike Flynn got a tenth of the anticipated audience.

    People may be moving on.
    Maybe. But let's not let a few setbacks for the red-hat crowd make us complacent.

    EXCLUSIVE: Jan. 6 Protest Organizers Say They Participated in ‘Dozens’ of Planning Meetings With Members of Congress and White House Staff

    As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up, some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and detailed explosive allegations that multiple members of Congress were intimately involved in planning both Trump’s efforts to overturn his election loss and the Jan. 6 events that turned violent.

    Rolling Stone separately confirmed a third person involved in the main Jan. 6 rally in D.C. has communicated with the committee. This is the first report that the committee is hearing major new allegations from potential cooperating witnesses. While there have been prior indications that members of Congress were involved, this is also the first account detailing their purported role and its scope. The two sources also claim they interacted with members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who they describe as having had an opportunity to prevent the violence.
    The two sources, both of whom have been granted anonymity due to the ongoing investigation, describe participating in “dozens” of planning briefings ahead of that day when Trump supporters broke into the Capitol as his election loss to President Joe Biden was being certified.

    “I remember Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically,” the organizer says. “I remember talking to probably close to a dozen other members at one point or another or their staffs.”

    For the sake of clarity, we will refer to one of the sources as a rally organizer and the other as a planner. Rolling Stone has confirmed that both sources were involved in organizing the main event aimed at objecting to the electoral certification, which took place at the White House Ellipse on Jan. 6. Trump spoke at that rally and encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol. Some members of the audience at the Ellipse began walking the mile and a half to the Capitol as Trump gave his speech. The barricades were stormed minutes before the former president concluded his remarks.

    Most of those words are used in other classes like science and math classes.


    Let NOT forget TEXT BOOKS would have to be changed in the entire STATE.

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is NOT going to make a Wisconsin exclusive set of text books for them. Nor will anyone else.

    Because most publishers use the book they offer to Texas as the ones they sell to everyone else.

    Gee I think tax payers would have an issue with that because someone would have to pay for new books and new training courses.


    Wisconsin Rep. Chuck Wichgers said in defense of the bill. “No one should have to undergo the humiliation of being told that they are inferior to someone else. We are all members of the human race.”
    GEE where was HE when black kids has to be humiliated?

    With books that said they were only slaves and their history was only slavery and civil rights.

    Or seeing every other RACE go to white school except them. And yes this did happen especially in Texas.

    Makes one wonder what’s in those White House records that Trump is desperate to keep under wraps and away from the prying eyes of the 1/6 commission.

    And since we live in a country where Justice is meaningless, there will be no consequences and the American voters will probably turn Congress over to these traitors.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I no longer see new allegations or “bombshells” as a means to prosecute those responsible for the terrorist attack on Jan 6. Republicans will continue to obstruct and protect the traitors and nothing will come of it.

    Hey, uh ... WBE?

    Rachel Hamm, a GOP candidate for secretary of state in California, claims that she had a dream that someone was going to break into her house and murder her. She brags that she prayed it away and instead her neighbor, who was a witch, was murdered.

    Sad but true. The GQP is hellbent on destroying democracy in their lust for power and make no bones about what they're doing because they know no one will step up to stop them. Not Democrats, not the DOJ, not the right leaning SCOTUS, no one. It's damned frustrating.

    Georgia man used most of Covid business loan to buy $57,000 Pokémon card, prosecutors say

    DUBLIN, Ga. — Federal prosecutors say a man used a pandemic relief loan to buy a $57,000 Pokémon card.

    Court records show Vinath Oudomsine is charged with lying on an application for a pandemic economic relief loan about the number of people his business employed and the company’s gross revenue. The Dublin, Georgia, man faces one count of wire fraud.

    The court filing said Oudomsine received $85,000 in August of last year, and used the money to buy a Pokémon card for $57,789.

    The Telegraph of Macon, Georgia, reports that defense lawyers issued a statement declining to talk about the case.

    ‘Carol’s Journey’: What Facebook knew about how it radicalized users

    In summer 2019, a new Facebook user named Carol Smith signed up for the platform, describing herself as a politically conservative mother from Wilmington, North Carolina. Smith’s account indicated an interest in politics, parenting and Christianity and followed a few of her favorite brands, including Fox News and then-President Donald Trump.

    Though Smith had never expressed interest in conspiracy theories, in just two days Facebook was recommending she join groups dedicated to QAnon, a sprawling and baseless conspiracy theory and movement that claimed Trump was secretly saving the world from a cabal of pedophiles and Satanists.

    Smith didn’t follow the recommended QAnon groups, but whatever algorithm Facebook was using to determine how she should engage with the platform pushed ahead just the same. Within one week, Smith’s feed was full of groups and pages that had violated Facebook’s own rules, including those against hate speech and disinformation.

    Smith wasn’t a real person. A researcher employed by Facebook invented the account, along with those of other fictitious “test users” in 2019 and 2020, as part of an experiment in studying the platform’s role in misinforming and polarizing users through its recommendations systems.

    That researcher said Smith’s Facebook experience was “a barrage of extreme, conspiratorial, and graphic content.”

    Is that not the predicate of the Left dereference to race and just about any minority position? It hurt their feelings or you don't know how that feels because of your privilege?

    The power which is derived cannot be greater than that from which it is derived. Undermining elections undermines the derivation of the law. The founding fathers used the same argument in their declaration.

    So funny how 'radicalized' is used as if MSM doesn't employ confirmation bias to whip up people's hate toward another portion of the country which it sees as rejecting its leadership.

    Study after study has shown that social media is both left and right frenzy feeding as a matter of dollars yet the mainstream media single out the right as the threat putting content before method or more to the point blurring the actual parasitic nature of social media.

    The intended undermining of the election was by the GOP, but you know, you're just another guy who can't get over realizing you're not the majority.
