    Pelosi and her cover up of 1/6. A good read.

    • taw46 says:

      • lateblum says:

        And just like helenk3 suggested it was a ‘false flag’ operation, I will echo that thought. I watched as a GOP Congressperson stated that Pelosi has not responded to demands that she respond to questions about the presence of the NG in DC. Nor has MadameSpeaker responded to why and how long the NG will be there.

        • taw46 says:

          I saw this morning that the troops will be there until (at least) this fall.

          • lateblum says:

            Yes. That was what I saw as well. Maybe Biden is trying to prevent any uprisings after he bans guns and abolishes the 2nd Amendment.

      • Constance says:

        Oh good! Now that it can’t possibly make a difference and the Democrats have had their political theater the Republicans are asking questions Well I don’t think their hands are clean either. I’m pretty sure McConnell was in on it too and probly the entire anti Trump nest of Republican vipers.

    My rep in the State Senate, hope she’s governor one day, always putting Virginians First ❤

    • DeniseVB says:

      Ooops, her comment on DeSantis’ video didn’t move over. From Sen. Jen Kiggans……

      My sister is a teacher in Florida and has been teaching in person since the fall without any issue. She watches the kids who learn in person get ahead while kids who stay online at home fall behind. Governor DeSantis is correct that preventing our kids from getting back to school is completely politically motivated and hurts our children to keep them home. Florida COVID is no different from Virginia COVID. It’s time for our kids to go back to school! #BackToSchool #Now #PoliticalGames

      • elliesmom says:

        Several friends have emailed me a letter written by a school superintent that addresses the issue of kids falling behind. They know I have some unorthodox ideas about what’s important in school and what’s not. They know if parents showed up to parent-teacher night, I gave them a pass for them to give their child for a missed homework assignment so the family could have a night to do something together. I also assigned all homework for the week on Monday so kids could arrange their schedules. One night’s assignment was always “sit down for dinner with at least one member of your family and explain what we’re doing in class”. I took a lot of heat from other teachers (and some parents) for it, but I had the full support of my superintendent so I understand where the fellow who wrote the letter is coming from.

        His point is when we discuss “falling behind”, we aren’t taking into account the things the kids are learning by not being school. He makes a list, and if all kids are getting exposed to homecrafts, are building better family relationships, and are having time to explore their own interests, then I heartily agree we should throw the curriculum standards out the window and make positive use of what the kids are learning. But that’s not the case for the majority of the kids, and eventually these kids are all going to come back to school. Just as our teachers didn’t and still don’t have the training to teach remotely, we haven’t prepared them for a classroom where some kids have matured faster both educationally and emotionally than kids their age usually do, some kids who have held their own, some who have fallen significantly behind academically, and a whole cohort who have PTSD. Every teacher is going to have a “one room schoolhouse”. The kids may be as many as two or three grade levels apart academically and a world apart socially when in-person school resumes. The teachers who are blocking re-opening school are the ones at blame, but it’s the kids, because it’s always the kids, who will suffer.

        So I’m OK with not holding anyone accountable to “curriculum standards”, but that doesn’t address what school will look like when it opens again after a year (or maybe two) of being closed. I have some ideas, but they’d be as popular as my idea of changing the school year to start in March and end in December to keep kids out of school during the worst of the flu season, which kills a lot of kids.

        • Constance says:

          My daughter went to Holy Names girls high school graduating in 2009, so obviously not a public school. But even back then they would put the brakes on flu by having Friday and Monday on line check in only so they had 4 days in a row off. It worked great and I can’t figure out why more places don’t try it. Of course the kids want to be together so they sneaked out to meet up in the park but the small break in mass exposure worked.

        • Woke Lola says:

          Yes, the consequences to kids is going to ripple through our communities for decades. In addition to kids being al over the place based on treatment and exposure, I believe the number of kids experiencing maltreatment in every area (emotional abuse/ neglect, physical abuse/ neglect, educational and medical neglect, and sexual abuse) is skyrocketing because parenting and protection capacity were already very low, especially amongst poorer populations who start families earlier, and have fewer natural encounters with information about healthy parenting.

          Our reports are still very low compared to prior to Covid, but the severity of cases is escalating the further along this gets. Kids are now outright dying of starvation or physical abuse that’s severe. Human sex trafficking is WAY up as teens buck the lockdowns and succumb to the worst impulses of the streets because no one is watching those streets any longer.

          In addition, the education system is actively trying to exploit the CPS system to enforce distance learning attendance without even working with parents on their technical capacity. Tech capacity is the worst I’ve seen here and it’s a problem all over South Carolina. Our friggin’ supervisors in CPS don’t even know how to keep a straight Outlook calendar, so it’s ridiculous to watch as educators and administrators try to use US as the sword for coercing parental compliance when they’re own tech skills are pathetic and they make way more than we do.

    This storm was a dud in Upstate NY. Driving conditions were crap this morning, but there was only a few inches of snow, mixed with ice. Maybe 2 more inches tonight.

    • elliesmom says:

      Here, first yesterday’s morning snowstorm completely fizzled. No precipitation and warm enough I walked Ellie wearing a sweater and a down vest. When we all awakened around 4:30 am, just a gentle rain and no ice storm. The rain on the roof put us all back to sleep. Hank is still sleeping. Now it’s raining harder, but still no ice storm, and the temps on the way to 50 this afternoon. Don’t get me wrong- I’m delighted we’ve been spared the havoc an ice storm can cause, but the time folks spent getting ready for the ice, the danger some people put themselves in clearing ice dams, and the panic some of my neighbors went through was unnecessary. The weather folks are better at their jobs than this, and grabbing headlines has to be at the root of it.

      • lateblum says:

        They’re probably Lefties attempting to grab the headlines from COVID news and the accompanying hysteria.

      • Constance says:

        We had a foot of snow in Seattle over two days last weekend but it warmed up to 46 yesterday and today, so It’s mostly melted off now. Seattle never plows the streets but I think I can drive today and I’m on for garbage pick up today.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Meanwhile, this is what weather forecasts feel like in Virginia……….oldie, but goodie 🙂

  6. foxyladi14 says:

    Hi been sick but getting better.
    I can’t get on HH44, Says account suspended.
    What gives??
    I love you all and missed you. ❤

  7. lateblum says:

    From Evanston . . .

    • elliesmom says:

      That’s what may yard looked like yesterday, but it’s melting quickly today.

      • swanspirit says:

        We had an actual thunderstorm last night. Thunder, lightning, downpour that lasted at least an hour. Today, there is a strange yellow light outside and a blue color up above the trees. I am going out to investigate. 🌞🌡

        • lateblum says:

          That wouldn’t surprise me one little bit. oh, be careful. Ive been reading about power outages and surges on twitter today and a blue light was mentioned as being dangerous and related to a blown transformer and dangerous.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        We got 8 inches more on the way, Winter is back in Ohio! 😀

    • mcnorman says:

      Austin is frozen. Rolling blackouts did not work as planned. My kid and her 6 mo old baby were stuck in a concrete tomb until a friend who did have electricity took them in. The ride was scary black ice. One cop died trying to help someone on the road. Sis says the store across the street has 100 people lined up outside in birkenstocks and socks. Completely unprepared unless they have ski clothes. Meanwhile across the state to the west…walked out to burst water pipes. The plumbers are gong to have a blast when we thaw out.

      • mcnorman says:

        4.4 million without power and growing.

      • taw46 says:

        That is just so scary. I saw a tweet last night from a mother asking what she could do to keep her two kids warm, it was 10 degrees outside. I felt so bad for her, as did everyone else.

      • lateblum says:

        How awful for everyone… I hope your daughter safe now. I went to the basement in my building last night to retrieve my space heater and while I was down there, I turned on the water faucet at the laundry tub so the pipes might not freeze overnight. I haven’t had to do that since the year of the Polar Vortex.
        Are you safe? where you are?

        • mcnorman says:

          Daughter is safe with a friend who does have power. Stores have been closed. They are supposed to get more snow/rain tomorrow so no reprieve on the ice. I’m on the opposite side of Texas at the border. We have a million across the border without electricity or water. I have both for now thankfully. We should be getting another quick snow blast later today and then back to the 70s by Saturday. East Texas will not recover as quickly. 😦

          • lateblum says:

            I bet you’re relieved to know she is in a good place now. What are you referring to when you say, “across the border”? There’s a part of me that wishes it would be in “the 70’s by Saturday”. But then, we’d have flooding the likes of which we’ve not seen before.
            I’m getting eager to go outside and clear off my car and see whether or not the streets are passable yet. We won’t see 32 degs for some time.
            Stay safe and warm – and dry.

      • elliesmom says:

        I have a college friend who grew up in MA but now lives in Texas. She comes back here for a couple of weeks every winter so she has some cold weather clothes. She’s been sharing hats, gloves, and warm sweaters and gloves with her neighbors. Her “rolling blackout” lasted 4 hours in the middle of the night. She said that was easier than losing power during the day because she and her husband could get themselves under every blanket they own. They moved to Texas to get out of the cold and snow so I didn’t tell her I walked Ellie wearing just a sweater today.

      • votermom says:

        prayers for them
        what an ordeal

      • 1539days says:

        Those kind of temperatures are terrible when you don’t have any preparation. Where I live, people have 2-3 different sources of heat, one that can run when the power is out. I’m out of luck if the power goes out, but when it’s super cold (below zero) there’s rarely any harsh weather to take out power.

        • mcnorman says:

          From my sister in Austin:
          Just got this from the wife of a CPS lineman:
          The State has issued critical electric load warning. Grid is abt to fail. Prepare! Water will go out as well so fill tubs etc as needed.
          At this time CPS Energy is no longer able to protect even critical infrastructure, such as hospitals, from some level of brownouts. Please help communicate to your neighbors:
          CRITICAL NEED FOR IMMEDIATE LOAD REDUCTION –
          High probability ALL customers will experience outages
          ERCOT is at a critical stage and in jeopardy of losing the grid.
          * Rotating outages will be increasing in both length and frequency.
          * Critical circuits will now experience outages. * There is a very high probability that all customers including critical customers such as hospitals will be affected.
          * We have no certainty or ability to predict duration or frequency of outages during this critical stage.
          * Restoration efforts have been suspended until this emergency situation has improved.
          * Please reduce your thermostats to a maximum of 62 degrees
          Please take immediate action to reduce your load. We are trying to maintain the integrity of the grid and avoid a ERCOT-wide blackout.

      You know Biden has to go before next year’s State of the Union. Can you imagine him trying to give an hour long speech? Or do they plan to keep us all in Covid lockdown so he can phone it in? On the other hand I think they want to keep Biden for two years so Kamala can be free to run for two more terms. God I don’t want to live through the Libs “First woman President” media bash.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I noticed this year’s SOTU is scheduled for Feb 23, but can’t find any other information about it. Wonder if Joe will screw it up like he did the Inauguration by Zooming pre-recorded blather to a swooning media?

      • lyn5 says:

        It will be recorded in 20-minute bursts.

    I love how creative people get with assigning nicknames to folks. I love “Sandy from the bar”, and today I saw a new one (to me anyway) for Kamala Harris- Princess Spread Eagle.

  10. helenk3 says:

    I was thinking (never a good thing), how many lives were lost in the covid pandemic due to the benedict’s hatred of Trump? NYC cuomo not useing the hospital ship and jarvis center set up to house covid patients. Other benedict governors not really doing the right thing because it was suggested by Trump? Never try to make me believe the benedicts give a damn about the American people, every action they take prove otherwise.

    • 1539days says:

      How about the month or more that Dems fought travel restrictions by Trump and said the Wuhan flu was just a smokescreen for the (first) Impeachment? Pelosi was hanging out in Chinatown, and not just for exotic youth serums.

  11. Miranda says:

    I have daffodils and crocuses blooming and opened the screened porch for our 55-degree high today. Tomorrow night, we’re under a winter weather advisory 🙂

    No wonder I’m sniffly and running a very slight fever. I’m being careful and have already canceled tomorrow’s hair appointment, just in case it isn’t allergies.

      So much for Parler and free speech.

      • Mothy67 says:

        According to the article he went out of his way to push the limits and is hosting an event for others to get banned.
        Seems few people understand free speech and that the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that hate speech is protected speech. I am no legal scholar, but even I understand that. I block some people on Gab, but a few that offend me I find interesting to read in an attempt to understand. I have a few I follow that are very anti lgbt. I don’t agree with them on some things, but they do often make valid points.

      Ugh
      Let that freak come near my bacon or cheeseburger.
      Da pup abandoned her vegan ways a few months ago (after I think ten year) It was very hard to create interesting meals that provided enough protein for a growing athlete. Most of the “fun dishes” were laden with salt and carbs..
      Imagine not looking forward to a great meal. A summer barbecue, Thanksgiving Turkey, a dunken greasy burger? I think proggies are by nature miserable people who want to rob all joy from others. They have killed traditional comedy and most entertainment is preachy sjw garbage. They insult traditional family all the time. Holidays are relentlessly attacked. Religion?

      Oh! I feel so much better now! One question: what is a ‘woman’? I thought using words like man/woman, boy/girl, he/she, etc was outlawed. Hopefully, Press Sec Chuckie can explain that in his/her/ze’s next press conference

      • elliesmom says:

        A few years back when feminists were about eliminating domestic violence, a bumper sticker that said “Real men don’t hit women” was popular. Yesterday when I was walking Ellie, I saw a pickup truck parked in a neighbor’s driveway with a bumper sticker that said, “Real men don’t hit women so put on a dress before you beat the crap out of your girlfriend”. While I was staring at it and contemplating who would put that bumper sticker on a shiny black F150, a petite blonde between 30 and 40, I’d guess, came out to get into the truck. She saw me looking at her sticker and shared this. “If you call a man a bastard or a sonofabitch for beating on women, he wears it like a compliment. Men who hit women like to be thought of like that, but the biggest insult to men and boys is to tell them they’re like women. Runs like a girl strike a chord?” The current definition of “woman” is anyone who doesn’t want to be a man or anyone men don’t want to claim. Which where the misogyny comes in.

    I’m in the middle of a professional diversification, adding real-estate development to the law practice. Law practice: deadlines, fighting with people, long and unpredictable hours, zero-sum games. Real estate: shopping, telling contractors what to do, and creating nice places for people to live. I know which one I’m enjoying more. : ) We went to see two absolute WRECKS yesterday–I had to climb up the OUTSIDE of one house, which was fun in high heeled boots–and I’m so excited to pick one and get this transformation going. Wish me luck, i’m so burned out on the law right now.

    • Anthony says:

      Sounds exciting and fun! Best if luck! 🍾🥂

      it sounds so challenging and empowering to make changes like these. Good luck with it all! ❤

    • elliesmom says:

      The idea that what we want to be when we grow can’t change midstream is ludicrous. You just have to have an adventurous spirit and a willingness to be a novice at something again.

    • elliesmom says:

      Michelle Malkin posted on FB that she doesn’t think pregnant women and women who want to become pregnant are being given enough information about how the vaccines affect a fetus or fertility. to make an informed decision. A person commented she was reporting the post to Facebook. I can’t find her post on FB to link it. So now even asking for more information is heresy.

      • 1539days says:

        The obsession with the vaccine is pretty bad. My company had a webinar with a virologist. Any concern was answered with “get the vaccine” because it’s apparently more important to be part of the herd than to think about side effects. Also, this guy wears gloves everywhere because of COVID panic.

        Right now, some libs are talking about forcing people to take the vaccine. By the time all the people who want it, take it, the death rate will far so low the pressure to force people into taking it will be nil.

      • lateblum says:

        Here, a pregnant woman was denied the vaccine. The suburb’s health department had just changed its position on giving the vaccine to pregnant women. They said there was not enough information about the effects the vaccines had on women or their fetuses. The next day, after the woman went to the media, the health dept reversed its decision and gave the woman the vaccine.
        When I was pregnant, I didn’t take anything except what my doctor agreed was safe. I wouldn’t have even sought out the vaccine.
        I am way too old to be pregnant. I “qualify” for a vaccine now. So far, I have managed to allow the deadline to select an appointment for the C19 vax to pass me by. Twice. My family isn’t very happy with me. I told them I’ll happily make an appointment for the vaccine after it is approved by the FDA and is not messing with mine or anyone’s DNA. That (sort of) appeased dd#1.

        • lateblum says:

          Even my pharmacist is “skipping” the vaccine until more is known. She, too, would rather get the J&J vaccine when it is approved.
          What I don’t understand is the judgmental attitudes of my family. I don’t condemn them for getting the vaccine. (Although, to be honest, I’d rather they had waited.) I wish they would keep their “concerns about my character” to themselves.

  33. Dora says:

    This is good. 🙂

    • elliesmom says:

      I’ve never really understood the mask in a restaurant thing. Since most of the time when you’re in a restaurant, you’re either eating or drinking, most of the time your mask in not covering your face. Early last fall my friend and I made a date to have lunch at a restaurant with beautiful outdoor dining. It’s been a favorite place since before the cootie flu. Unfortunately, it rained that day. We called to see if they were open indoors, and yes, they were. Would we please bring masks with is in case they got inspected while we were there, but no need to wear them. The owner chatted with us while we were there. He said he’d rather his customers went without masks than leaving dirty masks on the table while they ate. That really grosses him out.

  34. 1539days says:

    The storm didn’t get me, but the lake effect did. More snow today, but lighter. Of course, it’s in the single digits now, so I won’t be out with the snowblower until the afternoon.

    • elliesmom says:

      Yesterday was wet in the morning, but I walked Ellie without a winter coat. Today it’s bright and sunny, but 20 degrees colder. Winter storm warning up again for tomorrow and Friday, but the odds never go above 60%. So it’s probably going to be a blizzard. 🙂 If it happens, we’ll be on the southern edge of it. 🙂

    ‘How the f*** is this a real thing’: Joe Rogan, others blast Mayor Bill de Blasio for video pushing NYC arts while city collapses

    ‘NYC is now Portlandia,’ Dave Rubin reacted. ‘If you haven’t already, you must flee as soon as possible.’

    https://www.theblaze.com/news/de-blasio-pushes-nyc-arts-while-city-collapses

    • elliesmom says:

      At the risk of souding like I support DeBlasio, which I don’t, many New Yorkers make their living through the arts. If DeBlasio and Cuomo are intent on keeping the city locked down and locked up, these are people who need a way to earn some money. If outdoor performances will keep performers fed and housed and provide some respite to the people who have nowhere they can go, then why not? It’s by far not the worst idea he’s had.

  36. elliesmom says:

    Don Surber made a reference to Dustin Hoffman’s banging on the hood of a taxi in NYC and saying, “I’m walkin’ here! I’m walking here!” in Midnight Cowboy. I realized I saw the movie when I was 18 and on a first date. I should really watch it again. It’s showing on HBO so I’ve queued it up for my next knitting session. It will be interesting if to see if it feels like the same movie. Elliesdad didn’t like depressing movies. The first movie we saw together was On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. While James Bond became one of his favorite characters, that was his least favorite in series. You just don’t kill Mrs. Bond.

    • Somebody says:

      I don’t understand that mindset. If he’s talking about senior minorities he might have a point, but guess what? A lot of elderly of all races are not technological savvy. My mother would be a prime example. There are exceptions to be sure, but a lot of people in their mid 80’s and older have never fully embraced technology. There are even people younger than that that are technophobes, but I don’t think that is the reason for seniors not signing up. Most seniors have a friend or loved one that could help them with technology.

      I also don’t think elderly minorities is what Biden meant either. Biden truly says unbelievably racist things and the media doesn’t challenge him. I honestly do not understand how someone would assume that because someone is a minority that they don’t know how to use the internet or that they are intellectually inferior in some way. Based on many of Biden’s comments he seems to feel that way.

      • elliesmom says:

        There was a Project Veritas type thing, but not them, where a very polite young white man stopped random black people on the street and offered to help them get a valid photo id. Most people just laughed at him politely and assured him they had plenty of id. One woman showed him how close he was standing to a half dozen places where he could get one and so she could she. One man was noticeably offended, but everyone had at least one photo id that could be used for a voter id. I’m not sure how Biden and the Democrats get away with always painting black people as being less capable.

        But as far as older people and appointments for vaccine shots go, most of the older people who have complained to me say it’s like trying to get concert tickets for a hot group. First you have to watch for when appointments will be available. Then you have to be online the second they become available. In some places the appointment sites are a long drive, the appointments are weeks way, and the folks live places where winter driving is iffy. Once you have the first appointment, they immediately book the second one. Given the stories about post injection reaction to the second shot, they want to be sure someone else will be around to help them if they need it so they need to coordinate their appointment date with a son, daughter, or friend who can be on standby for them. Using the internet is the least of it.

        • lateblum says:

          A friend of mine had a 10-minute drive to get her 1st shot. They had her sign up for the second one before she left for home. She now has to drive 46 miles to get the follow-up shot. It makes no sense. But I darenot say anything or else I’m a Trumpet or an anti-vaxxer. My friends and family are nutty.

            RI is down to a 2.2% positive test level, and fewer than 100 people hospitalized. At least for now the virus is fizzling here. Maybe it’s because our governor went to DC to work for Biden. 🙂

    now would be a good time to start small neighborhood private schools. there would have to be a really strong PTA presence and dedicated teachers. The public schools have failed our kids for years and the kids deserve a lot better. they are the future of the country.

    • Somebody says:

      School vouchers. If there was an honest grass roots push for vouchers in states I think it would see more support than ever before. If there was strong support for vouchers it would put the fear of God in teacher’s unions. If vouchers did come to pass, that’s where the potential to fund small private schools could stem.

    She was *obviously* referring to Joe’s extremism in support of abortion. Jake, who appears to be spiraling, goes back to his well of promoting fringe conspiracy theories and using, if they even exist, an anonymous source to bash his political opponents. Are you ok, Jake?

    Do these things have any idea of being civil? just sickening. they could never be as big a person as Rush

    • lateblum says:

      I was listening to the radio his morning and heard Rush’s voice on the air. My first thought was, “At least he’s still.alive”. The next thing I heard was that his wife Katherine had just announced that Rush had died. I wasn’t a long-time listener, but still felt sad. He was a power to be sure. I then immediately recalled when Andy Breitbart had died and ppl I knew had openly rejoiced at the news. To say I was shocked then, is an understatement. I’m not shocked now. Those left-wingers are disgusting.

      No one will be banned for the vile things they say either. I called hillary a cunt, used hydrochloroquine in my handle, and laughed at pantifa go splat oh and #boycott Fox. Didnot threaten anyone. Forever banned.

      I wish gateway pundit would clean up it’s design regarding ads. I get they need to make money, but reading it is such a pain in the ass on a tablet or phone. I usually avoid clicking on it.

      SCOTUS is not going to take her case.
      It will be disnissed as moot.
      The only one that has a chance is the PA one Sean Parnell brought, but don’t get your hopes up.

      • Dora says:

        I’m not getting my hopes up. It’s just good to see that she is still trying.

        Sidney is a real fighter. I admire her for it.

    A great article.

    Money quote:

    If I articulate a philosophical or political position that degrades the fundamental dignity of any individual for the benefit of a collective, I should be called out, rebuked, and challenged. On the other hand, if I were to say something like:

    “The powers of the federal government should be limited to the articulated powers of the Constitution.”

    Or worse:

    “The Bill of Rights serves as a restraint on governmental authority, not as something to be ignored when expedient.”

    I should not, cannot, by definition, be called a “Right-Wing Extremist”.

    State offered extra doses to a senior community willing to help distribute them in a county that is behind on dosage rates as part of plan to prioritize seniors. When criticized by a lefty county official, he said they could go elsewhere. That will hurt him with no one reasonable

    @MarkSteynOnline

    On #Rush describes the lockdowns as worse and more severe than WW2 curfews in Europe: ‘this is the Afghan war of public health’, there’s no plan, no end in sight, no plan for it to end and we made things worse for those who were the most vulnerable’
