πŸŸ₯🎣 RED TIDE in #Florida again!

β€œNever, ever, have I seen it this bad,” Nguyen, who fishes both in tournaments and commercially, told The Washington Post.

@washingtonpost: On Friday, St. Petersburg cleaning crews had collected 15 tons of dead fish after 10 days of cleaning up, officials said during a news conf., as the cleanup continued. β€œ9 tons of those fish have actually been picked up in the last 24 hrs,” St. Petersburg Emer Mgr
πŸ”΄ According to the @tampabaytimes, St. Petersburg is at the epicenter of the state’s recent red tides.

This was also a problem when Rick Scott was Governor of #Florida.

So Amazon is buying MGM Studios, which owns all the APPRENTICE and CELEBRITY APPRENTICE tapes with outtakes of Donald Trump allegedly acting like a racist and a misogynist.

I wonder if Jeff Bezos will release them...after what Trump’s buddies did to him?

cnbc.com/2021/05/24/ama…
In case you don’t remember this πŸ‘‡

nytimes.com/2019/02/07/tec…
But, do we really need to see the tapes? During the past several years, @CaslerNoel has painted a pretty good picture of what went on.

And racism and misogyny are the least of TFG’s problems right now.

πŸ’Š If they really want to bring Trump to justice, the Manhattan DA, NY AG, Georgia AG & the appropriate DOJ districts should hire Dan Schneider to help them.

THE PHARMACIST
After losing his son in a drug-related shooting in New Orleans, Dan Schneider pursued his killers...but quickly found out that his real killers were the drug companies.

He didn’t take no for answer, despite warnings from law enforcement and little help. He just kept going.

The only one benefitting from this ridiculous push against eradicating #COVID19 (anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers) is Putin.

It is weakening America.

The same people are weakening our democracy with voter suppression.

They are working for Russia. Plain and simple. And knowingly.
All Republicans were screaming about last year was how they wanted their lives to return to normal.

Well, this is how you get back to normal: masking and getting a vaccine.

It’s unAmerican not to do this.
Unlessβ€”obviouslyβ€”you have a legitimate medical excuse not to.

🎞 Interesting documentary on the recent college admissions scandal where many have served short prison terms for allegedly bribing the way for their offspring to get into prestigious colleges/universities, using Rick Singer’s β€œside door” method.

imdb.com/title/tt141117…
❓ But the more important question is: what about the β€œback door” method, where parents donate exorbitant sums of money to these same prestigious colleges/universities and their offspring miraculously get accepted?

propublica.org/article/the-st…
The parents are free and their sons and daughters have Ivy League educations.

You’d think the institutions would be embarrassed that these peopleβ€”who obviously aren’t as intelligent as their typical studentsβ€”are flaunting their ill-gotten educations.

Everyone who cares about Alexei Navalny should tweet out this video that he did, exposing Vladimir Putin’s abhorrent corruption.

The U.S.β€”or one of our alliesβ€”needs to step in and take action to save Navalny before he dies. Not after.

Then read this excellent interview with twice-poisoned Vladimir Kara-Murza.
Note: the video has English subtitles. Although it is long, it is definitely worth watching the whole thing.

🎞 I don’t think I’ve ever been so blown away by a film in my life. It’s rough. It’s bone-tinglingly scary, devastating, brutal, suspenseful, heartbreaking...with a very small glimmer of hope.

WelcometoChechnya.com
Putin’s strongman in Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, has waged war on the LGBTQ community by kidnapping, torturing & raping them, forcing them to turn in their gay friends, sometimes killing them or returning them to their families and directing their families to kill them.
With the help of human rights organizations and lawyers, some of the victims have been able to flee, but the main subject of the documentary was not able to get justice in Russia after filing charges. πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί

That’s not a shocker.

#Texas and #Florida prioritize elderly over essential workers to get vaccine, bucking federal regulations

My brother said he was watching THE GODFATHER trilogy during the holidays so I decided to copy him.

In the middle of GODFATHER II, I saw this scene w/ Senator Pat Geary & realized (with all deference to Francis Ford Coppola), this movie needs to be recast with today’s villains.
🎭 The part of Don Corleone played by Donald Trump...
The part of Sonny Corleone played by both Paul Manafort and Roger Stone...

πŸ—£ Maxine Waters on @allinwithchris: We should have impeached him sooner.
100%. It doesn't matter that the Senate would not convict. He should have been impeached earlier, more often and/or continually investigated; he admitted that this hurt him.

He lives in the moment & would have been distracted. He even said he deserved a third term because of it.
Also because it would have been the right thing to do. Political calculation should never have entered into it.

Trump is a criminal who belongs in prison and it is going to take a long time for our country to heal from this.

#CoverUp

Not a lot of questions about criminal charges against former Libyan intelligence ofc Abu Agela Mas'ud Kheir Al-Marimi for constructing the bomb that killed 270 people when Pan Am 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.

32 years after the crime.

npr.org/2020/12/21/947…
When Barr was acting AG in November 1991, the DOJ charged two Libyan intelligence officers: Abdel Basset Ali Al-Megrahi and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah, 39 and 35 at the time.

Fhimah was acquitted.

Al-Megrahi died in 2012, but his case has been appealed.

nytimes.com/2020/11/24/wor…
al-Megrahi was granted a compassionate release in 2009 because he had cancer.

He insisted until his dying day that he was innocent.

His family has carried out his wishes to appeal the case.

😷 George Clooney on Masks

β€œThis thought where everybody is like, β€˜Well, it’s my freedom.’ It’s like, β€˜That’s not how this sh*t works, dumbas$.’

Your freedom is this: you are free to smoke until your lungs turn black, but you can’t do it on the bus...
Clooney (cont’d): You’re free to drink until your liver comes out your ass, but you can’t drink and get behind the wheel of a car. There have to be certain rules. This is one that says: put on a f*cking mask and we’ll get through this...
Clooney (cont’d): We’ve got vaccines comingβ€”let’s save another 60,000 lives before the vaccines.”

George Clooney urges 'put a f***ing mask on' in profane rant

Mitch McConnell can not get away w/ blaming this on the Dems.

It’s time to really fight back & let the American people know what’s really going on.

#MoscowMitch has been blocking everything since he became leader. It started when he couldn’t handle having a black president.
πŸ“’ Form a group of respected Democratic Senators to hold a press conference.

Tell the truth to all Americans about Mitch McConnell.

This cannot go any longer.

@ChrisMurphyCT @SenBlumenthal @SenWhitehouse @ChrisCoons @maziehirono @DickDurbin @SenDuckworth @BenCardinforMD
πŸ“’ It would also help the chances for @ossoff & @ReverendWarnock

πŸ“’ Let’s go!!

We need to counteract the #disinformation! We need the Senate back, but we won’t get it if you don’t FIGHT!!!

Fight for #WeThePeople

πŸ”₯ Senators cannot "defund the police."

That's something that mayors and boards of selectman would do, if they were so inclined...

Stop spreading #propaganda & #disinformation!

Vote for @ReverendWarnock and @ossoff for U.S. Senate in #Georgia. They tell the truth.
Or Governors for State Police...

Or County Board of Supervisors for Sheriff's departments...

Can all "defund the police," but what they originally meant anyway was to REFORM the police, not defund.

NOT U.S. Senators.

U.S. Senators do not have jurisdiction over any police.

πŸ’₯ Sorry, Mitch, but the Senate isn’t yours yet.

Right now, the Dems and GOP have 48 Senators each. Still to go:

πŸ› Runoff for Reverend Raphael Warnock against Loeffler, January 5
πŸ› Only 56% of the votes have been counted in #Alaska for Dr. Al Gross
πŸ› #NorthCarolina has not been called yet although Tillis has a lead over Cal Cunningham
πŸ› #Georgia has not been called yet although David Perdue is leading Jon Ossoff

#CountEveryVote
πŸ› And as many people have also pointed out, likely winner Kamala Harris as VP will be President of the Senate and will break any ties.

🦊 Fox News should be heavily regulated when Biden takes over.

For the first year, the network should be forced to educate their viewers about the #propaganda they spewed and the lies they told before and during Trump’s β€œpresidency.”

🎞 Another great film by Don Winslow. This one might be his best yet. Please watch!!

#Florida, this is not just about voting out Trump. You need to #FlipFloridaBlue if you want to stop the pollution in your state.

The corrupt FL legislature has ignored 2 amendments you have overwhelmingly voted for.

More pollution = more hurricanes & you will be the recipients!
🎞 Short video on toxic blue-green algae blooms, caused by pollution.
πŸ”΄ Red tide can also be a problem in #Florida, which can be exacerbated by pollution.
