    Stephen Miller tested positive for Covid.  My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

    Ouch!! I pulled something getting that one out.  Oh, that’s gonna leave a mark.  😷

    I remember the first pronouncement I ever heard him make. “We will not be questioned” he said. But, in fairness, I never heard him say…”We will not be infected”.

    And in fairness to some swine I have known. I mean, Stephen Miller isn’t fit to polish Arnold Ziffels’ feet.

    Trump’s new code name with the Secret Service must be “Whack-a-Doodle

    President Trump called on Congress to approve federal economic relief late Tuesday night mere hours after publicly terminating negotiations with Democrats, posting tweets that appeared to contradict his own declarations from earlier the same day.

    He continued pushing for more stimulus on Wednesday as aides scrambled to adjust to his ever-changing directives.

    Treasury Sec Munchkin can’t keep up either:

    Further complicating matters, Mnuchin asked Pelosi on Wednesday morning about the possibility of a stand-alone agreement on relief for the airline industry, Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, said on Twitter.

    Pelosi reminded Mnuchin on the call that Republicans had blocked a stand-alone bill that would have provided more airline aid last week, and she asked him to review House Democrats’ airline bill “so that they could have an informed conversation,” 


    Pelosi speculated Tuesday to other congressional Democrats that the steroid medication the president is taking to recover from the coronavirus could be altering his thinking.

    This is what 21st-century leadership looks like. Great work Jena! 

    Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold Announces TXT2Cure Program

    “As Secretary of State, I am dedicated to doing everything in my power to make sure that every vote counts. That’s why I’m proud to announce TXT2Cure, a major innovation to ensure Colorado’s election model remains the nation's gold standard. Mail ballots have increased participation tremendously in Colorado. While our mail ballot rejection rates due to signature discrepancy are low, a disproportionate number of young people are impacted. TXTt2Cure will help ensure more Colorado voices are heard.”

    (27 days to Election Day. Give us strength, Lord. Or, better, give us beer!)


    Covid Flinger

    Trump’s the man, the man with the Covid sneeze

    The viral squeeze.

    Such a cold finger

    Beckons you to enter his social space

    It’s a disgrace.


    Viral loads he will cough in your ear.

    But his lies can’t disguise what you fear.

    For even a White House gofer

    Knows when he’s groped her

    It’s the grope of death, 

    from Mr. Covid Flinger.


    Secret Service or White House Maid

    The risk of death isn’t worth what you’re paid.

    Even if it’s just a menial task

    He’ll yell at you without a mask.


    Everyone  beware of this big orange clown

    His polls are down.

    And he will kill

    To have power still

    To have power still

    And he has COVID!

    A real WTF moment today.

    I found a free copy of The Epoch Times in my mailbox.

    Timely delivery probably courtesy of deJoy.

    • Conserv. Head Banger says:

      Interesting. I use a post office box for almost all my mail. I got the Epoch Times today at the box.

      • kickshot says:

        I decided that I am going to bundle my copy up and mark it return to sender (have to give the address that was included in one of the inserts). The cheapskates provided an envelope to return w/a subscription request but it's postage required. if it had been postage-paid they'd be getting a bunch of rocks & stuff.

    Doug Lamborn got some notice on Daily Kos …


    “The chief of staff called and told us about the one positive case,” one source told The Denver Post, and another confirmed. “Three or four more people are experiencing symptoms. … It was recommended that they not tell their roommates.”

    So a large part of Lamborn’s Washington, D.C., office has either tested positive or is showing symptoms, and the response is “don’t tell your roommates.” While the congressman goes to fundraisers without getting tested at all.

    Amy Phony Barrett is a hit job. She is well aware of this moment in history and her place in it.

    She knows the deal. She will deliver.

    She is clearly dishonest.
