Two Democratic lawmakers sent letters Monday to a dozen cable, satellite and video streaming companies, including Amazon and Hulu, urging them to drop right-leaning news networks they claim pushed 'misinformation' in the 2020 election. Representatives Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerny, both of whom represent California and sit on the Energy and Commerce Committee, claim it's the responsibility of these companies to address media outlets 'disseminating misinformation to millions' through their airwaves. In the letters, Eshoo and McNerny accuse the right-leaning outlets Fox News, One America News Network (OANN) and Newsmax of serving as 'misinformation rumor mills and conspiracy theory hotbeds

The inescapable irony is that it is Eshoo and McNerny who are 'disseminating disinformation to millions' via their promotion of the democrat propaganda as gospel. In addition, they have completely discarded due process, and 'innocent until proven guilty', and are resorting to mob rules to enforce their PC version of truth on everyone else. They need to be kicked out of Congress for their gross violation of their oaths to uphold the freedoms of the US Constitution...beginning with the 1st amendment. How has it come to the point where we will tolerate such liars and hypocrites?

Some constitutional scholar can decide whether this is would actually violate the ban on government censorship of speech or not. It does certainly violate the spirit of that ban.

Alarming COVID-19 study finds
virus survives on fabric for 3 days

Posted by Ribicon 2/24/2021 11:19:14 AM Post Reply
A new study has revealed that the virus which causes COVID-19 can linger on fabric, such as clothing or upholstery, for up to three days. Between polyester, a poly-cotton blend and 100% cotton fabrics, the polyester posed the greatest risk, even after 72 hours; on full-cotton samples, the virus lasted one day, while the poly-cotton blend remained contaminated by viral droplets—designed to mimic human saliva—for just six hours. The breakthrough finding could be especially dangerous when it comes to clothing worn by health-care workers, said Dr. Katie Laird, a microbiologist and author of the study.

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.

WASHINGTON – The Equality Act is expected to advance in Congress this week. It's a controversial bill designed to overhaul the nation's civil rights laws to include LGBT Americans, but many worry it will trample on the rights of women and people of faith. Under the Equality Act, disagreement is considered discrimination. It includes gay marriage, biological males competing in women's sports, and doctors performing procedures--like gender reassignments--that go against their conscience.(Snip) Under the bill, Christian beliefs are unlawful. Churches could be prevented from requiring employees to abide by their biblical beliefs about marriage and differences between men and women.

The law enforcement officers claimed that they had been prepared to face a potentially violent protest, but they said the rioters caught them off guard. “We properly planned for a mass demonstration with possible violence. What we got was a military-style coordinated assault on my officers and a violent takeover of the Capitol building,” former U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Steven Sund testified. He pushed back on claims that USCP was not prepared for the riot.
