  1. The coordinated hand count of votes in Mesa county is complete. The Dominion voting systems worked perfectly. 

    Will the Tina Peters nut jobs kindly now, SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! 

    1. She won't.

      And you know what her followers will say:  the coordinated recount was a hoax. There were Chinese, Italian, and Venezuelans hands involved in the hand recount. 

      Fake news!

      Where we go one, we go all.

    2. Oh, come on, Duke. The hand count is just more evidence of how deep the conspiracy really goes! Next you'll be trying to tell us that the Jews didn't weaponize vaccines for use in their covert war of extermination against the white race!

  2. Does anyone follow the Avalanche? Im buying tickets for next year as a gift for a family member. Choices for home games are Avs vs Jets, Blackhawks, Canadiens, Minnesota Wild, Bruins, Coyotes. Which might be a good game? 

    1. kwtree, out of those teams you mentioned the Minnesota Wild is currently the best (17-6-1) and after that is the Winnipeg Jets (12-8-4).  The Avs are just two spots behind the Jets in NHL power rankings so that should be a pretty evenly matched game. Nice gift for someone BTW !

    2. I suspect, based on nothing really, that Minnesota might be the team that's the most natural longer-term rival for the Avs among those choices. But if you want to be political with your hockey into the future, don't forget the newest NHL team is called the Kraken!

  3. Never Forget That T[t]ump Purged the Pentagon Leadership Between the Election and January 6

    And that the new leadership he installed seized direct control over deploying the National Guard that day. And that deployment was delayed for hours.

    One of the relatively unexamined pieces of the January 6 disaster is the delayed deployment of the D.C. National Guard to the Capitol. Politico had a look on Monday at some explosive allegations from former D.C. National Guard official Colonel Earl Matthews, “who held high-level National Security Council and Pentagon roles during the Trump administration.” Matthews sent a memo to the House committee looking into the events of January 6 in which he offered detailed recollections of what happened inside the security apparatus that day. In it, he said the Pentagon’s inspector general assembled a report on the Department of Defense’s response to the attack on the Capitol that was riddled with errors and, in Politico‘s words,”protects a top Army official who argued against sending the National Guard to the Capitol on Jan. 6, delaying the insurrection response for hours.”

    The main takeaway seems to be that two top Pentagon officials, General Charles Flynn—who happens to be the brother of Trumpist fanatic Mike Flynn, though Matthews’ memo does not seem to cast aspersions on this front—and Lieutenant General Walter Piatt, opposed deploying the Guard on conference calls that afternoon. That included a 2:30 p.m. call in which then-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund “pleaded” for the National Guard to be deployed in order to aid his officers under attack. In Matthews’ telling, both Flynn and Piatt said on the call that they opposed the move because “the optics of having uniformed military personnel deployed to the U.S. Capitol would not be good.” 

    These “optics” were not a concern during the George Floyd protests the previous summer, when the Guard was frequently deployed alongside police. It’s absurd on its face. What worse “optics” are there in a democracy than people storming your seat of government in pursuit of elected officials, hoping to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power? “Optics” has been the party line throughout, but there’s reason to believe this is all a sideshow. Check out what else Politico found.
