Watching Biden and Fauci, et al., talk about reopening schools and discuss mask mandates brought to mind this question: What has Biden decided to do about the unvaxed/anti-vaxed? He is definitely NOT doing this:…
The Biden admin has decided that we are going to open schools, come hell or high water. This is a sound decision where pretty much everyone is vaccinated and in locations that mandate/encourage masks indoors. But what of Houston?…
And what of Florida? 90 percent of school age children there are unvaxed:…
It's clear that this a Biden level policy decision. He said so December 28 - "Look, there is no federal solution," Biden said Monday, according to a transcript of a conversation he had with a group of governors. "This gets solved at a state level."…
As a matter of policy, this is RUTHLESS. Biden is saying: we gave you (the Governors) the tools to save your citizens. The death and misery is now on you.

Let that sink in.
It was almost immediately followed by Gov. Desantis begging for more supplies ... but in a way that makes it clear that Desantis will let his population die anyway.…
Texas did the same thing - without the anti-testing vibe.…
As a matter of political strategy, it strikes me as damn smart. Texas and Florida were going to kill their citizens regardless. What Desantis and Abbott hoped to get out of that was a mask-mandate/lockdown response that they could bitch about and run against. They got nothing.
Instead of Biden as the authoritarian-who-makes-us-wear-a-mask, Desantis and Abbott are left with "Biden won't send us medicine made from blood drawn from COVID survivors."
I can only imagine that it is a grim, determined, ruthless Biden that decided to let Desantis and Abbott bury themselves in their dead.

Biden is an empath, and I have no doubt that this hurts him to his core. But I am proud of him for doing it. It has to be done. Dirk out

Watching AG Garland: Not really live tweeting, but I'll hit some high points. Starts with thanks, commitment to democratic institutions and the sanctity of the right to vote.
Now onto Jan 6: talking about the day itself; assaults on PD; perpetrator's violence; officers crushed; dragged; tazed; beaten, etc. Chemical agents. Pipes and poles and deadly and dangerous weapons. Also attacked journalists.
Attack on the peaceful transference of power: "those involved must be held accountable." (Damn, right, let's do it).

BREAKING: Wray and Rosen had elite special forces in the Capitol with shoot-to-kill authority on Jan. 6 tasked with continuity of government.…
Their orders were authorized under standing presidential authority, but not sent through Trump at the time. They would have been tasked with protecting Pence and Pelosi, among others in line of succession.
The fact this specifically mentions "line of succession" is a big deal. It's possible that Jan6 failed because there were unexpected special forces in the Capitol under orders from the good guys.

For the first time in a long time, I have a book I really want to read. A dangerous book, apparently. I fine the intro challenging to my Massachusetts/Plymouth Rock upbringing. So far, so good. Image
In the hopes of encouraging others to read, I'm going to tweet about it as honestly as I can. 1619 refers to an event in the Jamestown settlement which predates the arrival of the pilgrims in Plymouth.
I still have difficulty believing that there was a European colony before Plymouth -Jamestown in 1618. 1619 is the date that the first ship bringing African slaves arrived. Plymouth Colony was settled in 1620. 2019 was the 400th anniversary of the first African slaves in the US

President Biden nominated Ret Gen Austin for SECDEF on 12/9/2021, just in time for all hell to break loose. Gen. Austin is doing some things. A THREAD.
On Feb 3, 2021 Gen Austin ordered a one day stand down "to hold an in-depth conversation on the values underpinning national service, the oath of office, ...unit cohesion, [and] to gain a better understanding of the scope of the problem of extremist activity within the ranks."
On April 9, 2021, he issued a memo directing immediate action on extremism, and establishing the Countering Extremist Activity Working Group (CEAWG) based on what had been learned from and since the stand-downs.…

It's critical to recognize that the J6C can investigate whatever and whomever related to the Big Lie, without regard to known/suspected criminality. The DOJ is far more restricted in what it can investigate.
The J6C, however, can refer suspected criminal acts to the DOJ and provide evidentiary backup. The DOJ does not have to worry about the evidence being tainted by lack of reasonable suspicion/warrant/probable cause because J6C isn't subject to those restrictions when it subpoenas
And I specify the Big Lie, not just January 6, because we know that J6C is looking at events in GA that occured well before J6. And I'm sure they are beyond GA as well.

One of the things I learned in law school is that you can't trust ANYONE to read original documents (cases, statutes, regulations) etc., and give a reasonable account of what they say. You have to read stuff. And so ... let's read the House's referral of Mark Meadows for contempt
The Number One Question I'd like some insight into is what (if anything) the Jan6 Committee is willing to reveal about the connections between political operatives and violent mobsters
The report is here if you want to check it out for yourself.…
So far NOTHING that has leaked out of the committee (or those with knowledge) directly addresses the connection between violent extremists and rioters and Trumpists and Trump aligned political animals. That story is coming soon to a TV near you.
