Pelosi was speaking about the incident that took place last week when she started crying.
“The general is a respected leader with experience dealing with crises ,” she said, referencing General Russel L. Honoré.
She went on to say how grateful she was for the military officer, before her voice cracked and she said it was a “very emotional time.”
“[I am] very passionate on this assault on our democracy,” she said.
Pelosi said there were “so many disgusting images” from the riots in Washington DC.
She appeared teary-eyed as she spoke of a man wearing a shirt with “Auschwitz” on it during the insurrection.
Just what the world needs, freaked out anarcho-libertarians with guns…
In the menagerie of right-wing populist groups, the boogaloo bois stand out for their fashion, for their great love of memes, and, to put it plainly, for the incoherence of their ideology. Which is saying a lot, considering that the riot at the Capitol last Wednesday featured partisans of the long-gone country of South Vietnam, Falun Gong adherents, end-times Christians, neo-Nazis, QAnon believers, a handful of Orthodox Jews, and Daniel Boone impersonators.
The boogaloos weren’t a huge presence in that mob. But according to federal officials, the attack on the Capitol has galvanized them and could inspire boogaloo violence in D.C. and around the country between now and Inauguration Day. The FBI warned earlier that boogaloos could launch attacks in state capitols this Sunday, January 17.
The boogaloos don’t appear interested in fighting for Donald Trump—they tend to despise him, mostly because they think he panders to the police. But for the past year, boogaloo bois all over the United States have been cheering on the country’s breakdown, waiting for the moment when their nihilistic memes would come to life and the country would devolve into bloody chaos.
And Cuomo is the moron who gets the Emmy and praise.

One month after the first shipments of COVID-19 vaccines arrived in the state, Texas has become the first in the nation to administer 1 million doses, Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday. The milestone comes as intensive care beds are dwindling across the state and as experts predict daily coronavirus cases and hospitalizations will worsen following an influx of holiday season gatherings.
“This is the biggest vaccination effort we have ever taken,” Abbott said in a news release. “We still have a long road ahead of us, but Texans continue to prove that we are up to this challenge.”
Texas has administered more doses than any other state, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The state has administered nearly half of the more than 2 million doses it’s received so far, putting it in the top 20 states for percentage of doses administered.
h Amtrak, the government’s OTHER tit sucker next to the Post Office and Social Security.
Via NY Post:
Amtrak is responding to the largest union of rail workers calling for heightened security in Washington DC ahead of Inauguration Day travel.
“We join our labor partners in continuing to call upon Congress and the Administration to make assaults against rail workers a Federal crime, as it is for aviation workers and to expand the TSA’s ‘No Fly List’ to rail passenger service,” Amtrak CEO Bill Flynn said in a statement obtained by Fox News Thursday.
Amtrak said it was increasing police enforcement, limiting ticket sales and banning anyone who is not compliant with its policies, including mask-wearing following the violent attack on the US Capitol for Wednesday’s Inauguration ceremony.
COVID, the new mental illness…
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — A pigeon that Australia declared a biosecurity risk has received a reprieve after a U.S. bird organization declared its identifying leg band was fake.
The band suggested the bird found in a Melbourne backyard on Dec. 26 was a racing pigeon that had left the U.S. state of Oregon, 13,000 kilometers (8,000 miles) away, two months earlier.
On that basis, Australian authorities on Thursday said they considered the bird a disease risk and planned to kill it.
But Deone Roberts, sport development manager for the Oklahoma-based American Racing Pigeon Union, said on Friday the band was fake.
The band number belongs to a blue bar pigeon in the United States which is not the bird pictured in Australia, she said.
