On his final day, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the U.S. has designated China’s campaign against the more than one million Uyghur’s are genocide. That’s right, genocide. I’m wondering, since this was announced so late, if there was any coordination with the incoming Biden administration, It would only make sense but inthis case, I doubt it.Continue reading
Has anyone noticed the extreme security measures being implemented in Washington in preparation for the Inaugural next week? They’ve added concertina wire to a supposedly non-scalable fence around the capitol building as well as beought in as many as 30,000 armed (meaning rifles with ammunition) National Guard to protect the swearing in, The linked article says 20,000 but I’ve also read 30,000.

Anyone here want to support anything the government, state or federal, says about COVID-19? Seriously. When one day they say masks are ineffectual, a month later they say masks are required, what is it we are supposed to believe? Think about the virogists and epidemiologists that , some 1300 of them, said that protesting for Social Justice o the streets would not spread the virus, but those of us that want to go to the park or beach, were serious offenders?
