Yes. Johnson is fired again.

My only consolation is that Trump is costing him a lot of money, because he owns a manufacturing  business.


Tulsi dropped out of the race in favor of Biden. I think she's probably thinking more about saving lives than changing minds. A grass roots campaign is antithetical to a quarantine, and as a national guard medic she will likely be called up. She's been busy lately with a bill for a $1,000/month emergency payout. I wonder if endorsing Joe was part of the price to get something passed.

Senator Richard Burr, NC, is also fired, BTW.

Mind, I can't fire him, since I swore almost 20 years ago to never vote for any Republican who hadn't denounced the Cheney bund for anything, ever - but he's double-fired, and should go to prison for insider trading...

It strikes me as a good thing when we fire senators, if only we could make it stick...

Oh, looks like Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R, GA, did the same thing, and is also fired and hopefully going to jail.

Add Sen. Jim Inhofe R, OK, and yes, Ron Johnson, who must be tired from getting fired so often.

-From what I'm seeing this morning, it's possible I may have been a but too hasty with the later three.  Time and further investigation will tell.  Burr and Loeffler still look incredibly guilty, though.

I understand that Feinstein has her assets in blind trust ( as all professional politicians should be). So she probably isn't culpable.

That said, I'm wondering what Jared did while Trump was talking about "Only 15 cases!"

Don't get me wrong, I'm not thinking that all Democrats are above personal enrichment, even though I have sadly come to believe that Justin Amash was the only elected Republican in the federal government with ethical principles. EVERYBODY in government should be scrutinized.

Okay, what's this all about? Senator impeachments?

One can only hope.  At least two US senators clearly engaged in insider trading after a secret briefing on the Covid19 threat.  They not only failed to warn the public, they promptly engaged in self-dealing stock sales.  Not only is that disqualifying for holding their offices, it's illegal, and they should go to prison.

I'm watching news coverage, and there are repeated references to "misinformation" coming from the presidential press conferences.

There is an established term for this - PROPOGANDA

ANYone in TV news mentioning that the Pig lies when his lips move?  Who?

They are derelict in their duty to carry those mid-day pressers live, frankly.  They are news, but should be covered that afternoon, when fact-checking has taken place and the lies/unfacts can be covered - this would not be mere political journalism, so many lives being at stake.  They aid his negligent mass-homicide when they enable him w/ live coverage.  That guy at NBC IS a terrible journalist - they all are, only for the opposite reason than the Pig claims.
