I share the same thought as Poster #1, Garland came across as a total lightweight dufus. Completely unimpressive, especially compared to Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and ACB. Ramona (the Press)

John Durham - Special Counsel, Federal Prosecutor, Blah Blah Blah. The Republicans need to do their own investigation of John to see if he's doing anything. Or done anything. Can't wait for Lindsey Graham to appear on FOX and say, Blah Blah Blah you just wait and see there will be some surprises Blah Blah Blah. Jeff Session and William Barr, timid Swamp Creatures. Expect little cooperation from Garland to expose the corruption over the past years. If a Durham report is released within the next year or two it will be in MSM newspapers mentioned in Section C Page 8. Maybe 2 full paragraphs.

Good Golly, Miss Molly! Wake up, people. What did you think would happen? These politicians and permanent, deep-state, swamp rat bureaucrats are in it together. They all went to the same ivy league colleges, they all belong to the same fraternities, sororities, secret societies and private clubs. Their children all attend the same exclusive schools and intermarry with one another. Republicans/Democrats, Democrats/Republicans; there is NO appreciable difference. They are in it for themselves. They are just putting on an elaborate show for us hicks and rubes. As another L-dotter so succinctly wrote in another posting, the so-called political parties are simply two wings of the same vulture. They view We The People (if they see us at all), as feudal serfs put on this earth to supply them with what they want and need. We are interchangeable and expendable. They will tax us for everything we have, send our children off to fight and die in their endless wars with Eastasia ("we have always been at war with Eastasia") and all the while tell us that it is all necessary for "our own good". Damn them all to hell! As we have seen these last few months; this cannot be remedied by elections. There will be no more elections. The ages long war between freedom and tyranny is coming to a climax and tyranny is winning. Blood, my friends! This will end in rivers of blood. I wish it were not so. It is not what I would choose; but it is being forced upon us. May God bless you and keep you all.

The mess we are in is because the Republicans are really just slightly to the right of the Democrat left, they are spineless, and hate us as much as the Democrats. President Trump is also to blame. He knew the fraud was going to happen, and didn’t have anything in place to stop it. We won’t have a country to save by 2022, not that we’d be able to since the Republicans have let them get away with 2020 and now legalizing election fraud. What a sad state of affairs.

The man is a complete hypocrite. Couldn't answer the simplest questions and many repubs still voted for him. And, this idiot is worried about the white supremacists who live in his EMPTY FREAKIN HEAD. This while Antifa and BLM are burning cities and assaulting the police and crime in major cities is out of control. All of which have nothing to do with white supremacists. Communism has taken over our once great country.

another blunder by the Republican senators. these people are a bigger threat to our national security than any enemy abroad. my favorite Rush Limbaugh (I'll use his last name because there might be some who don't know of or never listened to Rush) quote is something like this (I paraphrase) the only time our country is safe is when congress is not in session. noticing the same names on this list by #2 as on most of the giveaway stuff the Republicans like to secretly give a "yea" vote to. shameful demonstration of cowardice but, unfortunately, there's more to come. to coin a phrase: politics is thicker than blood.

The Republicans should immediately move to have him recused. He must have passed a Russian in a hotel lobby, or something. I expect Garland will be more active than the idiot Jeff Sessions or the DC cocktail circuit guy, Bill Barr, both of whom never intended to do anything, and surpassed all expectations at it.

Man, these people live in the Twilight Zone. He is going to "uphold the integrity of the Justice Department" as though the Justice Department had any. They go after innocent people and never bother to investigate career criminals such as the Clintons or child molesters and traffickers. President Trump tried to clear out the swamp in D.C. but never could get the DOJ to do its job. They were to busy scheming and conspiring to bring him down.

Georgetown Law has fired one white professor and placed another on administrative leave after a video of their discussion about a black student in their class was condemned on social media. Dean Bill Treanor anounced on Thursday that the school had ended its relationship with Professor Sandra Sellers after the video showed her complaining on Zoom that black students were predominantly at the bottom of her class.(Snip) 'They were a bit jumbled. It's like let me reason through that, what you just said,' Sellers says of the student's performance, who the Black Law Students Asssociation claims is the only black person in the class.

Wall Street elite who flocked to Florida to ride out the COVID-19 crisis now have regrets — and are eyeing a move back to the Big Apple.“The main problem with moving to Florida is that you have to live in Florida,” Jason Mudrick, the founder of Mudrick Capital Management, told Bloomberg.Those among the upper crust are being drawn back to New York for its choice selection of private schools, restaurants and cultural institutions — as well as the city’s deep pool for young talent when it comes to finance jobs.“New York has the smartest, most driven people, the best culture, the best restaurants and the best theaters,”

I loved the Rush Limbaugh show.(Snip)The show serves a purpose--a purpose that we need fulfilled more now than ever. Unfortunately, it is not serving that purpose fully now. Rather than building on his legacy, we are wallowing in the sadness of his loss.(Snip)The radio show was never about the past; it was about the urgency of the present and the future. The show is an enormous asset to its owners and to America.(Snip)Rush always said he didn't want it "to be all about him.”(Snip)The owners are frittering away the fruits of all his work.

Since before the November 2020 event masquerading as an election, conservative pundits have been theorizing that mentally deficient and rapidly declining Joe Biden is merely a placeholder for the eventual rise to power of Kamala Harris (snip) Now that the Biden/Harris regime has been installed, the left has only to wait a decent, or indecent, amount of time for Ole Joe's decline to become too obvious to cover up (snip) Kamala Harris currently enjoys the best of both worlds; behind the scenes, she exercises all the powers of the presidency without having to publicly carry any responsibility for the results.

Eli Lilly's combination antibody drug

Eli Lilly & Co says its combination antibody therapy is effective at treating mild to moderate cases of COVID-19. The treatment, a mixture of drugs bamlanivimab and etesevimab, was developed by Indianapolis-based Lilly and the Canadian company AbCellera. It recognizes the virus once a person is infected and attaches to it, preventing the pathogen from entering human cells, and therefore neutralizing it. In trial data released on Wednesday, Eli Lilly said the combination reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 87 percent compared to a placebo. The results are an improvement of an earlier study of the combination, which reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 70 percent.

The brief clip, posted to Twitter Wednesday, shows an adjunct professor of law identified by the Georgetown Black Law Students Association as Sandra Sellers and another faculty member, David Batson, having what they believed was a private discussion about a class they jointly taught. “I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are blacks,” Sellers said. “Happens almost every semester.

The $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that President Biden is set to sign includes billions of dollars in debt relief and other assistance for farmers of color. (Snip) "My reaction is, Where did common sense go?" Griggs said. "We can’t strike. We can’t stop. That's the part that really sucks. These people in Washington who make decisions for us and our livelihood have probably never stepped foot on a real farm."

A 39-year-old single mom in Utah with no underlying medical conditions died four days after receiving her second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, according to a report. Kassidi Kurill, a mother of one from Ogden, received the vaccine due to her work as a surgical tech for several plastic surgeons, KUTV reported. “She was absolutely fine with getting it. In fact, she told all of us, ‘It’s fine, you guys should all get it,’” her father, Alfred Hawley, told the outlet. Kurill experienced a sore arm after the first jab of Moderna, but had no other side effects. But things

When the COVID-19 pandemic started and lockdowns became part of our daily lives, some romantic souls were predicting that this would produce a baby boom. Now, as the data shows up, we see exactly the opposite. CBS obtained data from health departments in over two dozen states that shows “a 7% drop in births in December—nine months after the first lockdowns began.” Research from the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., predicts that births may well be down 300,000 to 500,000 in 2021. The prediction is based on a negative correlation between birth rates and the unemployment rate. Higher unemployment means fewer babies.
