It’s Monday aka Martin Luther King Jr., Day.
For thoughts on MLK Day @ the News Blender.
We are just this many days until…
With Inauguration just around the corner celebrations are occurring welcoming the new Biden Administration to D.C..
For MLK Day at 8 p.m. D.C., time, the Biden Inauguration will stream a celebration of National MLK Day of Service. The hour-long event will feature entertainers, inspiring speakers, and stories celebrating the legacy of MLK.
It is What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 74.
Over the weekend on What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 72, the New York Times reported that President-Elect Joe Biden would as the newly minted 46th President of the U.S., offer a sweeping range of Executive Orders over his first 10 days in office.
Incoming Chief of Staff Ron Klain issued a memo on Saturday that was “obtained” by the Times in which they reported on day one, January 20th, 2021, Biden will issue, “a flurry of executive orders that will be partly substantive and partly symbolic. They include rescinding the travel ban on several predominantly Muslim countries, rejoining the Paris climate change accord, extending pandemic-related limits on evictions and student loan payments, issuing a mask mandate for federal property and interstate travel and ordering agencies to figure out how to reunite children separated from families after crossing the border.”
He also plans to send sweeping immigration legislation on his first day in office providing a pathway to citizenship for 11 million people in the country illegally. Along with his promise to vaccinate 100 million Americans for the coronavirus in his first 100 days, it is an expansive set of priorities for a new president that could be a defining test of his deal-making abilities and command of the federal government.The New York Times. 01/16/2021.
In contrast to Biden’s first 10 days, CNN reported on Sunday, with an update on Monday, that President Two-Times Impeached, is preparing to issue around 100 pardons according to three people familiar with the matter.
On Sunday the White House held a meeting to finalize the list of pardons, two of their sources said.
President Donald Trump is preparing to issue around 100 pardons and commutations on his final full day in office Tuesday, according to three people familiar with the matter, a major batch of clemency actions that includes white collar criminals, high-profile rappers and others but — as of now — is not expected to include Trump himself.
Initially, two major batches had been ready to roll out, one at the end of last week and one on Tuesday. Now, officials expect the last batch to be the only one — unless Trump decides at the last minute to grant pardons to controversial allies, members of his family or himself.CNN. 01/17/2021-01/18/2021.
A little nugget inside the reporting of the pardons:
White House officials also still have executive orders prepared, and the President is still hopeful to declassify information related to the Russia probe before he leaves office. But with a waning number of administration officials still in jobs, the likelihood that any of it gets done seemed to be shrinking.CNN. 01/17/2021-01/18/2021
In boy is everyone on edge following the insurrection on the Capitol news.
This morning CNN’s Manu Raju reported via tweets:
There was a fire in a nearby homeless camp.
After we watched live as an angry Trump supporting mob breached the Capitol building on January 6th, 2021, leaving 5 dead, 6 if we include the police officer who dead from suicide following the attack on the Capitol. It’s reasonable to assume tensions will be high for weeks to come in D.C..
In I wasn’t going to cover this or care but news…
On Sunday surprising nobody really paying attention newly elected QAnon supporting member of Congress Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene was suspended for 12 whole hours from Twitter.
Her two tweets that got her suspended for I repeat 12 whole hours can’t be shared without sharing a different persons tweet.
She lied about the Georgia election, Gabriel Sterling responded to her lies, though he said she was spreading “disinformation” and “misleading” people. He meant she is a lying crazy cow.
The crazy cow responded this morning to her ban, via tweets, crying about her First Amendment rights being violated.
Porn doesn’t violate their terms of service, unless it’s child porn, then people are arrested, and yes, their Twitter account suspended and banned.
We can disagree with the Iran Ayatollah, but again, it’s about violating the Twitter’s terms of service, which the Ayatollah, doesn’t do.
Free speech-our speech is protected from government making laws that prevent that speech, Twitter is not the government, therefore, Twitter the private business is not forced to guarantee us a platform to speak.
Twitter is becoming so boring, she’s crying that Twitter hurt her feels, by suspending her for 12 HOURS…
“freely debate” is not = to inciting violence or civil unrest, or spreading QAnon batshit crazy lies.
Our founding fathers imagined a nation led by morally sound individuals, that you know, understood the Constitution. Clearly GA is not sending their best.
In other transition news.
Newly elected Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris has formally resigned her senate seat.
