would disclose her location so she
could get hurt or kidnapped'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) expressed concern that her own colleagues in Congress might have shared her location to the mob of fanatic Trump supporters while they were storming the Capitol last Wednesday. Ocasio-Cortez's remarks comes as other Democrats have sounded off on the possibility that some GOP members of the Congress abetted the rioters as they stormed the building. Lawmakers were instructed to head for a designated 'extraction point' to seek protection from the chaos, but AOC asserted that that wasn't really an option 'because there were QAnon and white-supremacist sympathizers and, frankly, white-supremacist members of Congress in that extraction point

Comments:

The Republican-Democrats dare not defend themselves against the bug-eyed barmaid's wild claims. How about they all resign and give New America the Congress of Color that it so richly deserves?

While I realize that AOC has no love for 'white people', I believe that her race is Caucasian.

How is this not an ethics violation. While she didn't name names, she is accusing republican congressmen of racism, white supremacy and conspiracy to physically hurt her. She is slandering elected officials.

This sort of paranoid, delusional thinking from individuals in positions of power is indicative of a failed system. If "real" America cannot separate itself from "new" America, then we'll head down a path of Yugoslavia-like violence, especially with a dementia-addled President at the helm.

She is starting to understand that when the mob comes for her, it won't be a MAGA crowd. Someone must have read her a history book of what commies do when they take over. Now her every waking moment is looking over her shoulder. Otherwise why would she be so skittish? Her side won everything, but she acts like she is being hunted.

No pardons by Trump for Snowden, Assange 3 replies
Posted by Ribicon 1/20/2021 9:02:02 AM Post Reply
Fugitive national security contractor Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange missed out on pardons from outgoing President Trump on Wednesday. The high-profile figures were not among the 143 pardons and commutations issued by Mr. Trump with just hours remaining in his presidency. The clemency actions included a pardon for former White House strategist Steve Bannon, who was facing trial for allegedly defrauding donors in a project to help build Mr. Trump’s border wall. Also missing from the clemency list was Reality Winner, a former National Security Agency contractor imprisoned in 2018 for mailing classified material to a news outlet.

The World Health Organization acted too slowly in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic, allowing the virus to spread worldwide and eventually kill more than 2 million people, an independent report found. The report, commissioned in July by the WHO itself, also blamed world leaders for their lack of action, saying China locked down too late in January 2020 but otherwise refusing to single out nations. The Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response suggested that had the WHO taken emergency measures sooner, perhaps its member nations would have realized the severity of the virus and reacted accordingly.

Joe Biden may be taking his last ride.

The 78-year-old Democrat is known to start his mornings with a workout on the popular $1,895 home exercise bike that links riders up to intense workout classes, according to a report in Popular Mechanics. But because it has a microphone, camera and access to the internet, Biden’s bike opens up security fears—which could force him to ditch it in Delaware when he moves into
