Before the election, Biden said he was going to stop COVID from spreading immediately. He's doing nothing. Fauci needs to be fired for lying to the American people about not needing to wear masks last spring and not doing his job. He needs to get his butt out of interviews and into meetings to get the COVID vaccine more widely distributed.

Where was Big Tech when there was absolutely no proof of Trump-Russian collusion? Twitter, Facebook and other Big Tech bullies are losing customers in droves. Shareholders should be disturbed by this.

^^They aren't though because it's only Conservatives being targeted. Everybody hates them and they're too scared and such pussies that no one fears them. They dictate terms to Conservatives and those fags take it up the ass. Who wants to be a Conservative with pussy role models that that?

10:05 Dr. Fauci did not say we didn't need to wear masks, he said there weren't enough at the time for everyone to rush out to buy some. What we had was needed for the front line health care workers. Of course, everyone rushed to manufacture more.

There is no vaccine to be distributed.

10:07 Mueller basically said that they tried to collude with Russia, but they weren't competent enough to pull it off. Even a Republican Senate committee found that Russia interfered in our election.

Some customers aren't worth having if it means that their platforms are used to spread lies & false conspiracy theories. If anything, they should of acted sooner.

10:21 everything you said is a lie, there is video of fauci saying masks weren’t needed, fauci is incompetent and needs to be replaced because he’s all over the road, he constantly flip flops on what to do. For 417,000 a year, the highest paid government official period, he sucks at his job and he’s been doing this all his life.

Skanky Harris said...

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Joe Biden signed an executive order yesterday granting citizenship to everyone who voted for him.

Some ten million people are expected to receive citizenship through the executive order, making it the largest instance of amnesty in our nation's history.

"If you voted for me, darn it, man, you deserve to be an American," Biden said at a press conference this morning. "Thank you for your service, and welcome to America. You're all Americans in my book -- clean, articulate ones."

"Now, let's build back better!" Biden pulled out his phone and played "Despacito" in honor of the votes he received.

There was some confusion as he then appeared to hear a voice in his ear and said, "Breathe in, breathe out." The statement was praised by all media outlets as being "a powerful reminder that we need to just calm down and breathe."

^^Tuna odor boi reports....
U.S.—Now this is progress: in a move to bring attention to issues of social justice in the United States, the Biden administration has announced that all attack drones used to bomb countries in the Middle East will have "Black Lives Matter" decals applied to them.


"Now, every time a bomb is dropped, it will be the sound of social justice and progress moving throughout our great land and around the world," said Joe Biden. "We want to show the BLM movement how much they've accomplished by electing Kamala Harris, and also me."

"This is progress to be proud of, folks."

The administration will also be rolling out drones with rainbow designs, drones with "Climate Change Is Real" stickers, and the United States military's first-ever transgender attack drone (it was originally an attack helicopter but identified as a drone.

Did Biden ever figure out how to open the door to the White House?

Have we every had a President this dumb ? Yes we have, his name was Lyndon Baines Johnson; another Democrat Party failure that damn near ruined the country.

I feel sick to my stomach quite a bit. I feel like I woke up in a different world last week. Watching Biden get sworn in was the most traumatic experience of my life. I keep waiting for The Storm, kept waiting for Trump to march on Washington and arrest the pedophiles. But it never happened. It was just a regular day. Meanwhile Trump flees to Florida. He pardoned rappers, but no pardons for Assange or the Patriots who marched on the Capitol. I am going to be sick. I gave up my whole family for this man, literally. I spent the previous week stockpiling water and preparing for the electricity to go out. Now I just look like a paranoid idiot. I can't believe it. Could it be? Was the whole thing a lie? I took money out the grocery budget to donate to Q for God's sake. And now I'm alone. My son says he never wants to speak to me again. I thought I'd be telling him "I told you so" by now.

10:21 re Fauci. You are wrong:

Re: Collusion. You are wrong again. The Mueller report said it did not absolve Trump (of course that wasn't its job) but couldn't find any proof of collusion. And the fact that Russia spent a hundred thou or so to influence an election does not mean that Trump was involved in the effort. (Obama spent much more than that to try to influence the Israeli election.)

Ditto, 12:07. The Chiefs will be playing without their three best offensive linemen: Fisher, Schwartz and Duvernay-Tardif. Mahomes is going to have to get rid of the ball PDQ. Expect lots of short play action passes.
