Repairs, not progress

I've added a page for the old game, QBASIC Gorillas.

  • Biden continues to work for Americans. In addition to what I posted about earlier, he's blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, looking into white terrorism, getting rid of the Republican transphobic laws, and appears to have a progressive attitude regarding abortion rights. Of course, Republican TV is very angry at his horrific scandals like condemning white supremacists.
  • But COVID-19 doesn't care about the change in guard, The USA passed another milestone with 25,000,000 confirmed cases, and that number continues to rise at a staggering rate. And, it turns out that an unknown Republican agent was feeding Trump false COVID-19 data which he frequently sided with over that of scientists. Last month, three elementary school teachers in Coob Country, Georgia died from COVID, and, at a wake for their fallen comrades, the speaker asked everyone to don their masks in a show of respect for the dead, but several the pig-headed members refused, still clinging to the imbecilic lie Trump told them that this is all a hoax.
  • In a classic example of "words not deeds" Republicans Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and their ilk may say that Trump's failed insurrection was wrong, but they are still in favor of overturning the election in Trump's favor.
  • Republicans pushed to have as many people executed as possible, and the Republicans on the US Supreme Court helped to make that possible, even when they evidence wasn't so clear.
  • After publicly accusing Dominion of voter fraud for weeks, but never providing any evidence, Republican Rudy Giuliani is now being sued by the company for defamation, and, unfortunately for Giuliani, Trump is no longer able to give him a pardon, and now has his own problems with the impending Senate hearing.
  • Republican Kellyanne Conway has spent the past several years of her life lying for terrible people, so it's not much of a surprise that she's also been covering up how abusive she is to her daughter. Thankfully, her daughter bravely started recording the abuse and posting it online. When it got so bad that police were called, the police proved once again why they should be defunded. Rather than protect a child, they told Conway to take away any devices her daughter might use to record any future abuse.
  • Democrat Dianne Feinstein has been supporting the Republican party all throughout the Trump administration. She didn't vote to impeach him the first time, claiming he has learned his lesson, but he went on to incite an insurrection. Rather than admit she was wrong, Feinstein defended the Republican attempt to overthrow the election results.
  • Couy Griffin founded a hate group called Cowboys for Trump and help take part in the failed coup. After breaking into the Capitol and saying a prayer to white Republican Jesus, Griffin went back home and was planning to storm the Capitol again, this time with guns and ammo to stop Biden's inauguration through gunfire. Thankfully, the morons who took selfies captured him at the Capitol and he was arrested before he could murder anyone, and, a bit shocking, it was discovered that the would be assassin was a government worker! Garret Miller also went to the Capitol with murder on his mind. More than anything, he wanted to murder Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. He too, thankfully, has been arrested.
  • Florida Republicans appear to be going through with their plan to punish data analyst Rebekah Jones who kept many Floridians safe from COVID-19 by posting the actual infection data rather than the doctored data Republicans wanted her to post which made the virus look less deadly than it actually is.
  • Every so often a Republican can get things right, like when they shut up and defer to actual experts.
  • True to form, Bernie Sanders is more interested in helping people than talking about memes.
  • How much further tech platforms need to go in order to prevent aiding another insurrection.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin thought he could sweep his competition under the rug by having Alexei Navalny poisoned, but Navalny survived the assassination attempt. As Navalny continued to speak out against Putin, the dictator again thought he could silence the man by arresting him, but Navalny bravely returned to Russia to be imprisoned. Now, as protests erupt all over Russia, Putin thinks that he can use the government to censor the population, but they're making posts to social media much faster than Putin's censors can delete them. Good luck to you Russian freedom fighters!

I've added a page for the Tom Petty album, Full Moon Fever.

  • A large portion of the mob at the Capitol consisted of white supremacists revealing just how big of a problem they still are. And, so far, 29 law enforcement officials are suspected of aiding in the insurrection at the Capitol, revealing why the police were so easily caught off guard when the warning signs were so obvious. Their ilk are still walking the streets of the Capitol, carrying illegal firearms, and one woman claimed she was part of Trump's law enforcement, only she was lying to an actual cop! One member of the failed coup, Guy Reffitt, who was trying to lay low, threatened to murder his children if they turned him in. He has thankfully been arrested. All of this chaos, in fact, all of it for the past five years, has all been based on a series of unending lies, but, these lies have been repeated so many times, that they've now become part of American culture.
  • Here's a major problem with the people being arrested for storming the Capitol. Many of them are not being charged with serious crimes. Take Gracyn Courtright, for example. She was identified from social media photos which show her attacking Capitol police and later looting government property from a restricted area of the Capitol. Her crime isn't just trespassing and theft, but, willingly taking part in a violent attempt to overthrow American democracy. She should be charged with treason, but, unfortunately, she's only being charged with trespassing and petty theft, a punishment that carries a mere $1,000 fine. She has since returned to social media to say the failed coup that left several people dead was "cool," and she says she's not sorry for what she did, but proud, and that the other rioters should also be proud of making history. Do you think the small fine has caused her to learn her lesson? When she next has a chance to take part in an insurrection, do you think she's going to shy away from trying to overthrow democracy again?
  • Looks like the reason Trump and Giuliani have been selling presidential pardons for $2,000,000 a piece!
  • One of Trump's last requests before he's kicked out of the White House, was to plead the Pentagon for a military parade for his departure. The man whose daddy paid a doctor to create a fake illness so Trump could dodge the draft, really wanted to play with more toy soldiers to make his look like a big tough guy. The Pentagon denied his begging.
  • Republican Nelly Jordan took to Facebook to call Jews puppets of the Democrats and blame them for Trump's impeachment. It's typical to hear such flagrant racism from Republicans behind closed doors, but they're usually cautious enough not to broadcast it on the Internet. Realizing her job was at stake, Jordan claimed she wasn't antisemitic, and claimed someone changed her words, only to later apologize saying what she wrote was "inappropriate." Her fellow Republicans voted on whether to fire her and almost half of them said she should stay, citing freedom of speech and blaming the media and political correctness! However, a slim majority voted to fire Jordan, but said she will be allowed to come back to work for them after two years, which they much assume is ample time for her to learn how to hide her antisemitism better.
  • While rallying to overturn democratic elections, Trump supporter and white supremacist Michael McKinney fired his gun into a car with a mother and four black teenage girls, all unarmed. McKinney, covered in body armor, claimed he was defending himself which is why he shot the teenage black girl in the leg through the glass of the car.
  • Seth Rich was a staffer at the Democratic National Convention who was murdered in part because of lies spread about him on Fox. The family sued Fox and they had to pay the family over a million dollars in damages, but their lawyers made sure that the settlement's details could not be discussed until after the presidential election, hoping that their lies wouldn't injure Trump's chances of getting reelected.
  • After trying is hardest to exclude immigrants from the US Census, but failing anyway thanks to a whistleblower, Republican Steven Dillingham has finally resigned in disgrace.
  • Trump's boss, Vladamir Putin, tried to murder his harshest political critic, Alexei Navalny. After that failed, Putin demanded he be extradited back to Russia to be arrested. Navalny bravely returned to Russia, knowing that he will probably be murdered while in custody.
  • Republican Lauren Boebert was seen with a large group of people at the Capitol days prior to the insurrection even though tours were supposed to be banned due to the pandemic. She denies the accusation, but admits she was giving a tour to her family, but that they couldn't have helped the insurrectionist, but also admits her mother was in D.C. during the riot.
  • The Republican propaganda piece, the 1776 Report, was released on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which especially offensive considering how much the report gets wrong about his life and history. Trump, who knows almost nothing of American history, said he wanted to teach American children "proper" history, so, as expected, the 1776 Report is a long list of lies and white-washing. The report vilifies the black heroes of the Civil Rights Movement, ignores most of the US's history with slavery, and paints the slave-owning founding fathers as abolitionists.
  • Bernie Sanders talks about his new job as chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.

I've added a page for palindromes.

  • The Republican insurrection failed, but there are still plenty of crazy Republicans terrorist groups left. Some are being arrested for having guns at the Capitol, others have been caught plotting a second coup, nearly all of them are Evangelical Christians, and there are so many, they won't all be caught before Inauguration Day, but perhaps those Republicans in Congress who may have helped the mob will be. This is why the National Guard will has been at the Capitol for the past week, and, why, if you ask the Capitol police who were overrun on the 6th, why they should continue to be there for weeks to come. Unfortunately, after it was discovered that several Capitol police aided the coup, the FBI is having to screen the troops in case some of them are fascist sympathizers.
  • Thankfully, the fallout continues for those Republicans who helped spur the coup on. Republican Josh Hawley, who saluted the efforts of the mob and tried to overturn democratic elections not only lost his book deal, but now he can no longer do fundraising at a major hotel chain. Similarly, QAnon supporter Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene was temporarily suspended from Twitter as part of the company's cleansing of QAnon misinformation, largely boosted by Russia. But don't expect justice to happen, as "law and order" Trump plans to pardon over 100 more criminals just before he leaves office, but it remains to be seen if he will try to pardon himself for the several lawsuits he will have to face the day he leaves office.
  • COVID-19 is still at its worst, not just because so many people selfishly refuse to take basic precautions, but also because Republicans completely bungled the vaccine roll-out. In an effort to make themselves look semi-competent, Republicans said they were going to expand vaccine distribution, but when hospitals asked for more, they discovered the reserves were already exhausted! Republicans, knowing there weren't any vaccines left, said they were going to be giving out more! Thankfully, Biden is committed to enforcing sensible precautions.
  • The Republican Senate is still trying to prevent the Biden presidency and blocking any measures to hold Trump accountable because, as Rand Paul points out, voting against Trump will destroy the Republican party. I agree with him, only, he seems to think its a bad thing, and not a necessary thing. Putting a murdered in prison will destroy their social life, but it still has to be done. As it is, White House staffers have had a full time job trying to tape together all the documents Trump has illegally shredded.
  • A look back at how utterly incompetent Trump has been regarding cyber-security, which kind of explains why the USA, and Trump himself, was so severely hacked so many times during his time as president. But, it's not just Trump who exposed the USA to hacking, one of his supporters who invaded the Capitol stole Nancy Pelosi's computer and is trying to sell it to the Russians! And, interestingly, by banning Trump and his allies from social media, the amount of online misinformation dropped by a whopping 73%!
  • Trump's former staffers are out of work and looking for new jobs, but very few people are hiring. And it's not just because Republicans caused the worst unemployment in a generation, but because nobody wants to work with people who have proven to be hideously corrupt and morally bankrupt.
  • Despite receiving massive contributions, and gun sales going through the roof because of Republican fear tactics, the NRA has squandered their money and had to file for bankruptcy!
  • Rebekah Jones, the data analyst who put together a great COVID-19 tracking website in Florida, but was fired after Republicans demanded she doctor the numbers to make it look like fewer people were dying from the virus than actually were, is now being arrested at the request of those very same corrupt Republicans.
  • Yes Republican Rudy Giuliani called Game of Thrones a "documentary" of "fictitious Medieval England." in an attempt to justify his call to violence.

Every now and then, someone who is anti-science is able to learn where they went wrong, and become a more intelligent person.

I've added a page for the Tecmo Bowl series of video games.

  • Several people were killed during the failed insurrection, including a police officer (one of his murderers has been arrested), but the mob was out for blood and wanted to kill a lot more. Among those eager to murder congress persons were the Christian pro "life" and lots of Republican politicians. Those rioters who have already been arrested are begging Trump for a pardon, and, considering Trump's love of pardoning actual mass-murderers, it's likely he'll free them.
  • The Republican-led FBI is publicly claiming they had no idea the January 6th insurrection would occur. I guess they somehow missed all the social media threads where Trump fans openly discussed violently overthrowing the Capitol, and all the speeches given by Republicans telling their sheep to rise up and fight, or the fact that the crowd was made up of dozens of people on the FBI's terrorism watchlist. But the FBI isn't as ignorant as they claim. An internal memo shows they were very aware of extremists preparing for a coup, but they never bothered to investigate them, probably because the threats were coming from white men.
  • In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, Trump is refusing to pay his lawyer's legal fees. This is good news for people who like justice because, by alienating even more lawyers, Trump is eliminating his chances of ever hiring a competent lawyer again, and, since he's just been impeached again, he'll need someone to defend him at his Senate hearing, especially since even his fellow Republicans are finally turning on him, but it's a little late for that now.
  • While I'm glad that social media has finally given Trump to boot, it shouldn't have taken four years of inciting violence and racism for them to do so. The state of New York is suing their own police department for how racistly they handled the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests.
  • While protecting Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the Secret Service had to rent out a neighboring house at $3,000 a month because Ivanka didn't want "the help" to use any of their six bathrooms.
  • Seven years ago, Republican Rick Snyder and his team accidentally poisoned the water supply of Flint, Michigan which led to several deaths, thousands of people ingesting toxic levels of lead, and billions of dollars in damages. They've finally been arrested!
  • Why did Republicans give $500,000,000 of the money meant to protect small businesses to payday lenders.

North Dakota is trying to pass a law which would require priests to report child molesters, and, naturally, Catholics are pissed!

I've added another Contra Lua script. This ones makes enemy bullets easier to see.

  • Trump is the only president in history to foul up so badly he had to be impeached twice. This time, rather than zero, there were 10 Republicans in the House who decided they could no longer sit back and watch their country burn and finally grew a spine. It's not much, but it's a start. Liz Cheney explained that more told her in secret that they would have voted to impeach, but they're afraid of what Trump and his rabid fans would do to them and their families, and Republicans in the Senate didn't waste any time blasting them for loving their country more than their party. Sounds like they're afraid of terrorists. It appears that the Republican-controlled Senate will delay their hearing until after Trump is already out of office, which is interesting, because, at that time, Democrats will have a tie , they can still charge him with a crime,
  • More evidence has come to light about just how ill-prepared for the insurrection the government was. Not only did law enforcement fail to make a threat report, but the panic system at the Capitol had been removed!
  • The fallout from the coup continues. The mob appeared to be half stupid and half violent, and thankfully, the violent half is being arrested, John Eastman, the law professor who lied for Trump has been forced into early retirement, and PayPal is blocking access to those groups trying to raise money for the rioters. Also, Howard Liebengood, one of the Capitol police officers, has killed himself. No word has come out if he killed himself out of disappointment for the police's failure to stop the insurrection.
  • All those Christmas and New Years parties have led to record COVID-19 deaths with 4,200 Americans dying last Tuesday. The USA has been unbelievably slow at rolling out its vaccine, just now surpassing 10 million, still not even halfway to the goal we set for the end of last year. This slow rate means, even after you do get vaccinated, you'll still have to quarantine for a lot longer.
  • Republican Leticia Remauro of New York is facing heat after she shouted "Heil Hitler" to protest sensible virus restrictions.
  • Republicans forced the once-loyal Alex Kaufman to resign as a federal attorney in Atlanta, Georgia because he refused Trump's demands to commit voter fraud. He was replaced by Republican Bobby Christine who was eager to finally see all the evidence of voter fraud Republicans claimed existed in Atlanta, but, when he arrived to work, he says he was shocked to find there wasn't any. Really? You were shocked to find Republicans were lying about voter fraud? Really?

Ireland looked into their nation's history of letting the Catholic Church providing homes for unwed mothers, and they discovered a startling truth, because the Church treated the women and children so poorly, they ended up inadvertently killing around 9,000 children, many of which were buried in mass graves!

I've added a page for the Queen album, The Miracle. I also added a Lua script for Contra which allows either player to cycle through their guns by pressing select.

  • More fallout from Trump's call to insurrection where his followers brought guns and bombs. Several major Republican donors are pulling their funding, New York City is canceling their contracts with Trump's company, YouTube has suspended his channel and Twitter and Venmo have banned the account of the organizer of Trump's election overthrow group. Also, Democrats are debating impeachment now, and prominent Republican Liz Cheney has said she will vote to impeach Trump, this may be because she actually has a conscience, but, it may also because she knew Trump was trying to get rid of her.
  • Interestingly, despite the fact that Trump called for his followers to mob the Capitol, Republicans place the blame squarely on Biden. Only a very few Republicans actually have the courage to point out that it wasn't antifa, but Trump supporters who tried to overthrow the US Capitol. And, all this violence has led to the Capitol installing new security measures, and Republicans are furious that they now have to walk through metal detectors the same way school children have to because of Republican inaction on gun control.
  • And, though he isn't vocally calling for an uprising, Republican Mitch McConnell is still obstructing the peaceful transition of power in his own way by refusing to hold a single confirmation hearings for Biden, which means, he will have an empty cabinet the day he takes office.
  • Republicans may be all for killing police officers in an armed insurrection, but don't you dare say they don't care about law and order! Case in point, they just executed an imprisoned mentally ill woman.
  • Republicans claimed that, because there is a pandemic, women shouldn't be able to have abortion pills, and the Republican-majority Supreme Court agreed.
  • Trump presents the Medal of Freedom to honor Republican Jim Jordan, a man who protected serial rapist Richard Strauss while he was a coach at Ohio State University.
  • It's been seven years since Republican Rick Snyder and his emergency managers switched the water supply of Flint, Michigan to the Flint River and then tried to cover up the fact that they had poisoned thousands of Americans, and just now, Michigan is finally on the cusp of pressing charges.
  • Democrat Mikie Sherrill is accusing her Republican congressmen of leading groups of Trump fans through the Capitol the day before the riot as a form of reconnaissance.
  • Who can be concerned about the five deaths or the failed Republican attempt to overthrow the nation when these Fox employees have lost Twitter followers?

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is completely full of it.

Why does time seem to move slower or faster depending on what's going on in our lives?

Last night, I beat Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon.

  • Democrats have begun the articles of impeachment for a second time against Trump, and the House is currently voting to enforce the 25th amendment to remove him from office. And, though the assault on the Capitol failed, the FBI has issued a bulletin to every state that, thanks to Trump's constant calls for violence, they have evidence of armed insurrections being planned at all 50 US state capitals on inauguration day!
  • Eugene Goodman, the Capitol police officer, who faced angry mob looking for a black man to lynch, risked his life using himself as bait to lead the rioters away from US Senators. But not all of the police at the Capitol are heroes, many of them, in fact, are white supremacists and currently under investigation.
  • News has come out that, although he was very pleased to see the rabble infiltrating the US Capitol for him, Trump was very annoyed that they didn't look wealthy enough. And, while people have commented about Melania Trump being trapped by a bad man, it's important to remember that she's not a good person either.
  • How Fox responds when a Republican wins compared to when a Democrat wins.
  • Is it so shocking that a Republican would torture an animal to promote Trump? Or that Republicans would publicly mob a Democratic congressman at an airport?
  • Another one of Trump's goons, the bigoted Chad Wolf, resigned at the last minute hoping the stench won't follow them out of the room. It will.
  • The utter failure of US health care to respond to COVID-19, even for first-line workers, has caused the working class to renew their interest in labor unions. To give you an example of how bad it is, the CDC set a goal for the US to have 20 million people vaccinated by December 31st, 2020, and, now that it's January 12, 2021, they still aren't even halfway. And, although fairness is important, it may interfere with people getting their COVID-19 vaccine.

I've added a page for the Nightwish song, Stargazers.

  • Trump incited a riot to storm the nation's Capitol in order to overthrow democracy and install himself as a permanent dictator. This wasn't unexpected, as he's been doing this since even before he took office. While some police fought the mob, other officers at the Capitol were recorded helping the mob infiltrate the Capitol, and some among the mob were probably off-duty police officers. Either way, there wasn't much of a show of force to try an stop them and now one of the officers who was violently beaten by the mob is dead. Many Republicans applauded the violent overthrow, including Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, who called the mob "American patriots." And, after it failed, Trump lied and said, all along his goal was a seamless a peaceful transition of power. Even after this happened, the majority of Republicans in Congress still voted to throw out the results of the Electoral College and overthrow democracy, only in a less-violent way. Pence should immediately invoke the 25th amendment to remove him from office, but he won't. Congress should immediately impeach him again, and Democrats are working on it, but, because Republicans still control the majority of the Senate, and they value party over country, so they won't. As it is, though they helped make this mess, Facebook and Twitter have done more to punish Trump than Congress.
  • The people in the mob which overthrew the nation's Capitol also planted bombs and, because the mob had access to all the electronics in the building, literally every electronic device (computer, phone, lamp, extension cord, etc.) has now been compromised and must be replaced.
  • Among the mob that helped overthrow the nation's Capitol was Republican Derrick Evans and, although he didn't directly take part in the attack, Republican Josh Hawley encouraged more violence. Again, book publisher Simon & Schuster and St. Vincent College have done more to punish the Republicans who helped incite the riot than Congress.
  • Our government may be in a shambles, but COVID-19 doesn't care, and it's still getting worse. Yesterday saw the deadliest day so far with over 4,000 Americans dead from the virus. Those who partied on Christmas and New Years are reaping what they sowed.
  • Even though the Capitol is still a mess, Trump's destructive executive orders are still being passed. All the non-discrimination rules from the Health and Human Services have just been removed, which means that companies which receive taxpayer money to make government housing can once again openly discriminate against women, non-Christians, and the LGBT.
  • Clueless Republican Mary Miller, while standing in front of the US Holocaust Museum, said, "Each generation has the responsibility to teach the next generation. You know, if we win a few elections we’re still going to be losing unless we win the hearts of our children. It’s the battle. Hitler was right on one thing that whoever has the youth has the future." Then, the Republican organization Moms for America, who is even more clueless, defended Miller's speech saying she wasn't actually praising Hitler, she was just pointing out how Republicans need to win over American children in order to take over the nation.
  • Betsy DeVos is now trying to resign thinking nobody will notice that she stuck with Trump for the past four years with every monstrous thing they've done together.
  • Chris Malone, a football coach at Tennessee-Chattanooga, was butthurt that Stacey Abrams helped turn Georgia blue that he publicly mocked her appearance while spouting Republican conspiracy theories. He was promptly fired.
  • In yet another example of everyone aiding Trump having their lives ruined, Trump's former lawyer, Sidney Powell, who kept publicly blaming Dominion voting machines for rigging the election, but failed to produce any evidence, is now being sued by the company for slander over a billion dollars.

Another day, another priest is discovered being a child rapist.

I've read the Jewish apocryphal book, the Assumption of Moses.

  • Republican supporters followed the calls of their leaders and infiltrated the US Capitol resulting in several deaths. The same police force who had no problem shooting at Black Lives Matter protesters suddenly laid down and allowed a violent overthrow of the Capitol. Reinforcements had to be called in and even the National Guard. Finally, Trump told his insurrection, "We love you... you’re very special... but go home in peace." Even after the riot, most of the Republicans in Congress still objected to the results of the Electoral College and continued to lie about election security in order to further incite the riot, but it's clear that their real beef is with elections in general. Republican Rudy Giuliani applauded the violent extremists and Eric Trump claimed he would ruin those Republicans who didn't try to keep his daddy in office. In the end, it was all for naught as Congress stayed late and certified Biden's win. Among the sedition crowd was Republican Rick Saccone who lost to a Democrat and Nick Fuentes, a Holocaust denier who after marching at the anti-Jewish "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, lost his YouTube and Reddit accounts because he posted too much hate speech. After seeing the mod that overran the Capitol waving Trump flags, Confederate flags, and brandishing assault rifles, Republicans took a long hard look in the mirror and declared it was all an antifa plot!
  • Unfortunately, COVID-19 doesn't care about the insurrection, and continues to raise to its highest rate in the USA. Chicago schools are stupidly trying to start in-person classes once again, but half of their staff were wise enough to not show up.
  • Hoping nobody will remember that they've stuck with Trump for the past four years, several Republicans are trying to distance themselves at the last minute as the administration goes down in literal flames.
  • After years of Republicans abusing their power and using plain-clothes federal agents to break up peaceful protests against him, a new law requires federal agents to clearly identify themselves when responding to civil disturbances.
  • An unnamed UPS driver was fired after a security camera recorded him giving a long racist rant about why he refused to deliver a package to someone with a Mexican-sounding name. Want to bet who he voted for?

I've added a page for Billy Joel.

  • It looks like an extremely slim majority of Georgians didn't want insider trading corrupt criminals leading their state and voted for Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff (leading, but yet to be confirmed). There are several good things to glean from this. First, Warnock is the very first black person to be elected to the national Senate by the extremely racist South, even in spite of Georgia's runoff election system being purposely designed to keep black people from winning. Second, "Moscow" Mitch McConnell can no longer obstruct Congress and his several years of blocking all legislature has come to an end as the party of the VP becomes majority leader when there is a tie. Third, now that the Senate is tied, every vote along party lines will fall to Vice President Kamala Harris, making the first non-white, non-male VP that much more important. But this isn't all good news. The damage Republicans did to the Judicial Branch will linger for decades and many of the new policies Democrats will try to put in place, in fact, even just trying to repair the damage of Trump, will likely be challenged and refused. For example, Trump absolutely gutted the EPA despite even his own supporters hating it, and it will probably be toothless until the Supreme Court has competent justices again. Also, Biden is very conciliatory and it doesn't appear that he will fight for progress. In fact, some of the people he's added to his cabinet are actually quite awful.
  • And, don't kid yourself, though Republicans have lost when it comes to, you know, votes, they're still trying to steal the election in a more criminal manner. Republicans called for their base to violently overthrow the US government, and that is precisely what Republican voters are doing. Trump pressured Pence to throw out the results of the Electoral College entirely, even though he doesn't have the authority to do that, and, in a surprising show of limited spine, he finally said no. His fellow Republicans who care even less about the US Constitution are challenging the results, even though they can't change anything at this point. At the state level, those Republicans who lost their majorities are refusing to let to Democrats who won the elections take their seats. Republican Ryan Aument obstructed Pennsylvania Congress and refused to swear in the winning Senator, Democrat Jim Brewster. John Fetterman fought for justice even as Republicans kicked him out, but Republicans continue to try and illegally hold onto their power.
  • Democrats have a very slim majority, but they have their work cut out for them trying to stop COVID-19 as it keeps getting worse, and churches continue to help the virus kill.
  • In the past four years, pretty much everyone who has sided with Trump has either been found guilty of committing crimes for him or has discovered being associated with him was career suicide, and that continues even now that Trump is on his way out. Cleta Mitchell, the lawyer who helped Trump with his criminal phone call to Georgia where he demanded mass voter fraud, has now had to resign in shame.
  • Even as the country implodes, Trump is still trying to play golf, but Scotland refuses to let his COVID-spewing face in.
  • Wisconsin refuses to file charges against police officer Rusten Sheskey, the white cop who shot Jacob Blake, a black man, seven times in front of his children leaving him maimed and paralyzed. Although police claim Blake had a knife, bystanders filming the attack did not see a knife, the police were unable to describe the knife, and Blake's lawyer contends that it was planted on him.
  • US intelligence agencies seem to be in agreement, the massive cyber attack which infiltrated nearly every branch of American government was most likely from Russia, but Trump will continue to defend them.
  • The Republican failure to control unemployment during the pandemic has left over half a million people in Michigan alone without aide.

  • The Republican assault on democracy continues unabated. Pence publicly urges his fellow Republicans to refuse to accept the election results and declare Trump king. Meanwhile, all ten living former defense secretaries of the US military agree that Trump lost and the US military veterans group VoteVets now describes Trump as America's "number one traitor." A Georgia election official explained point-by-point how every claim made by Trump is a lie. The Attorney General of Georgia, personally appointed by Trump has mysteriously resigned, and the Georgia election board said Trump could be charged with soliciting election fraud, but his fellow Republicans will never let justice be served. And, finally, today is the day that Georgians decide if there will be any repairs made to Trumps four years of destruction. Don't get your hopes up.
  • The Christmas surge is beginning to hit with 128,000 Americans being hospitalized in a single day. America's health care infrastructure was already failing, and COVID-19 has laid bare the problems for everyone to see. It's gotten so bad in California that paramedics are being told to not even bother trying to save people with a low chance of survival. The death panels Fox said would come about with Democrats in charge has come true because of Republican callousness. Meanwhile, the new mutation seems to be infecting children at a higher rate.
  • Ohio Republicans have passed a law which forces women who have abortions to pay for a burial or cremation for the small lumps of undeveloped tissue that are removed. Because Ohioans do not require the same treatment for miscarriages, it proves that this law is not about the sanctity of life, but about punishing women for wanting control of their own bodies.
  • Trump urged his cult followers to call the Michigan speaker of the house in a further attempt to overthrow democracy, but, as is typical with the bumbling Republicans, they got the wrong number, and now, a random woman in Michigan has been receiving non-stop calls for days.
  • The leader of the terrorist organization the Proud Boys has, thankfully, been arrested. Unfortunately, the charge is a minor one, so it's unlikely he'll be stopped.
  • More has come out about the pharmacist who purposely spoiled over 500 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Not only did he purposely spoil them, but he tried to cover his tracks by making it look like the vials were still okay after he ruined them, meaning, people might still have gotten injected with them! Steven Brandenburg claimed the vaccines were unsafe, in his opinion. So, because he felt they were unsafe, he purposely made them even less safe! When asked how someone without any training in drug safety testing could know which drugs were safe and which were dangerous, Brandenburg had nothing to say. Let's hope he not only loses his license, but also goes to prison.
  • Republican Governor Doug Ducey urged the people of Arizona to stay home to help slow the pandemic, but both he and his son have posted various pictures of themselves partying in public without masks.

Trying to make sense of the wildly inconsistent family tree of Jesus in the Mew Testament.

Law enforcement failed Nashville severely. When the girlfriend of the Nashville suicide bomber went to the authorities and told them he was making bombs in his RV, not only did they never bothered to get a warrant to search his RV, but they sent his girlfriend to undergo psychological evaluation! This is white privileged mixed with assumed hysteria.

Mr. Phil (not Dr. Phil, because he is no longer a licensed doctor) is cruel and hurtful and gets rich by using and abusing people with mental disorders.

The BS behind small miracles.

  • The Republican government in Georgia has counted their votes three times, and each of the three times, Biden has won. So, naturally, Trump called the secretary of state of Georgia, Republican Brad Raffensperger, and threatened him with legal action if he didn't create over 11,000 new votes for him, which, if he did what Trump demanded, would be one of the worst cases of voter fraud in American history. Trump is demanding a very serious crime and will not be punished or even reprimanded. Meanwhile, Trump laid the lies on even thicker, wrongly saying Georgia's Senate run off elections were illegal and invalid, when they are both legal and valid. Trump's cries might be related to the fact that Georgia Republican Senator David Perdue had to self-quarantine just before the election because his refusal to wear a mask or social distance has exposed him to COVID-19, who, despite his claims to love America, has spent his career moving American jobs to Asia and insider trading.
  • Despite the fact that literally every investigation in the election has proven Biden won fair and square, Republican traitors are expected to obstruct the Electoral College certification, while, at the same time, arguing in favor of it. And, once Biden's presidency is made official Republican secessionists are expected to riot because Republican politicians are urging them to riot. This is all just a game of dangerous political theatre because the reality is, behind closed doors, every Republicans knows Trump lost.
  • The USA has surpassed 20,000,000 cases of COVID-19, and 350,000 deaths, with the more deadly mutation now in multiple states. The actual numbers are probably a lot higher because Republicans actively worked to block social distancing and testing, with Trump specifically saying he didn't want anyone tested unless they were dying in the hospital. Meanwhile, Sheriff's Deputy Aaron Hoffman said he wanted to use his authority as a police officer to murder nurses who give vaccines. Also, two Trump supporters refused to wear a mask on a plane and the pilot had to tell everyone on the plane to get off so security could forcibly remove the women. As a black person walked passed, one of the Trump supporters shouted, "have a good day, n****r."
  • It doesn't matter that the USA is referring to their vaccine initiative as "warp speed," the reality is, thanks to Republican bumbling, every other country is beating us at rolling out the vaccine. China has already vaccinated 50,000,000 people in a single month, and Israel has already vaccinated 12% of its population. Meanwhile, the USA has just barely vaccinated 4,000,000 of our 328,000,000 civilians.
  • And one big important reminder, Biden is not going to get us back to normal, because a lot of the people he's hiring at the people who brought the country to its knees in the first place.
  • And, just to ensure the unemployment rate stays high, Republicans are freezing work visas.
  • George Santos, a gay Trump supporter, attended a big maskless COVID-19 super spreader event for New Year's Eve with his fiancé. Unfortunately, his fiancé's employer, a health care provider, actually takes COVID-19 seriously, and fired him for blatantly defying their sensible social distancing rules. Rather than admit their behavior was reckless and will lead to innocent people being killed, Santos is following the Republican playbook and blaming the media.
  • A British judge is protecting Julian Assange from US extradition by claiming he is a suicide risk, and therefore shouldn't be allowed to go the USA to stand trial for his crimes. Not bloody likely. Assange was a big help for getting Trump elected, and would probably get a full pardon as Trump is handing them out to every violent criminal who sings his praise, and awards his most corrupt lackeys, like Republican Devon Nunes, with the Presidential Medal of "Freedom".

A 7-minute long recap of 2020, and one just focusing on the protests.

Gregory and Travis McMichael, the racist father and son who hit a black jogger with their car, called him the n-word, and then shot him to death, all while recording their murder on video and bragging about it to the police, are being charged in court, but their lawyer is making them look even more racist than they already are.

Religions have a long history of convincing their members to forfeit their civil liberties for the benefit of the religion, but few force them to sign a contract to forfeit their civil liberties. But, it is for that reason that serial rapist and Scientologist Danny Masterson might walk free.

Just a reminder, corporations are trying to kill you. Walmart pharmacists exlain how the company ignored red flags to continue to profit off the sale of highly addictive opioids, and Home Depot has been fined $20,000,000 for purposely not cleaning up lead-based paint at customers houses. This is why it's so important for employees to unionize, especially when working for companies that are on the path toward evil, like Google.

Ever notice how when Muslims kill themselves in an explosion, they are immediately referred to as a "suicide bomber," but when a white guy does it, a lot of media outlets hesitate to use the same term?

Anyone can be psychic if you make enough predictions.
