And here’s some news:
White supremacists plotted to attack power stations in the southeastern U.S. with the hopes of expediting their plans if President Donald Trump were to lose his re-election bid, the FBI alleges in an affidavit that was mistakenly unsealed.https://t.co/7NNpMHeHHW

After the Loeffler family collected $3.2 million in federal farm subsidies, Sen. Kelly Loeffler had this to say about opposing #COVIDrelief ($600 per person): people need to “get back to work and limit government dependency.”https://t.co/ZO7oTdk3eU#SenateRunoffs #VoteThemOut pic.twitter.com/0tfnA5SrIJ

One year, Trump deducted $75,000 in hair expenses.
A $600 check, wouldn’t even cover 3 days. pic.twitter.com/y4uf0pndX3

In keeping with the style and tone of his presidency, the majority of @realDonaldTrump’s pardons were for rich, corrupt or violent white men. https://t.co/4DMANWQRk2

Lie to cover up for the president? You get a pardon.
Corrupt politician who endorsed Trump? You get a pardon.
Murder innocent civilians? You get a pardon.
Elect a corrupt man as president?
You get a corrupt result.

Nearly 700 Wal-Mart workers across Canada tested positive for #COVID19 this month, illustrating the challenge of controlling the virus in workplaces deemed essential. (Credit where it's due: Wal-Mart disclosed, unlike some other large employers.) https://t.co/AR2hfGGPpp

Oof… that is deep. 🌋
This is an open thread.
Happy Christmas Eve…Eve. Stay safe
Same to you and yours! we’re expecting nasty weather so my plan is to hunker down! We’ve got gale warnings already!
Trump pardoned cold hearted psychopaths that gunned down defenseless men, women, and children …
He’s pure evil and every one that supports him belongs in the demon realm.
Yeah. Pardons are supposed to fix miscarriages of justice.
Not to BE miscarriages of justice.
Dump is a murderous psycho – he aspires to be just like Putin, Duterte and Bonesaw Salman. He wants firing squads reinstated for executions. He wants alligators to eat asylum seekers. He wanted to execute the Central Park Five….after they were found innocent. He has no problem whatsoever with murder and never has.
He’s sending a message to his followers — corruption and wanton, sadistic murder will be pardoned.
Dr Daughter’s hospital finally got their Pfizer shipment. She’s off this week but I’m assuming she’ll go in when she gets the word she can take the shot. I am so pissed that we can’t get vaccines to so many who should have them. I can’t imagine how they’re going to get the rural hospitals covered. Just glad she’s not in Mt Vernon for that reason. Most of her patients there were migrant workers and indigenous so can only imagine where they fall on the Trump priority train.
Migrant workers pick and pack a lot of our food — especially fruits and vegetables. I’d say they are essential, but I’m sure Trump doesn’t thinks so.
Love the cartoons, thank you!!
The cartoons are great, JJ! I like the Assembly Required the best.
