Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:
It’s just perfect, really.
The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.
The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.
Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.
It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.
From a story at DailyWire:
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”
Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.
“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”
“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”
Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”
All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.
Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.
I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.
Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.
Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.
There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.
Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.
But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.
That is all.
