  1. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick paid out his first voter fraud bounty to a progressive poll worker in Pennsylvania who caught a Republican voting illegally Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick set a minimum $25,000 bounty in November 2020 for proof of voter fraud. Eleven months later, the first and only recipient received their reward for turning in a case. The winner was a progressive Pennsylvania poll worker who turned in a Republican for voting twice. One week after the presidential election in 2020 where President Joe Biden toppled former President Donald Trump, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick set a bounty of up to $1 million to anyone who could find instances of voter fraud in the US. Eleven months later, Patrick's finally doled out his first reward: the minimum amount of $25,000 to a progressive poll worker in Pennsylvania who turned in a man that voted twice, according to The Dallas Morning News. The poll worker, identified as Eric Frank, told the publication that he received only received the minimum bounty reward because he was told greater rewards were reserved for "bigger fish."
  2. 'I've lost my joy': Anti-vax Republican, who worked for the Trump campaign and embraced QAnon, says she has COVID-19 Lauren Witzke was the 2020 GOP Senate nominee in Delaware. She ran against Democratic incumbent Sen. Chris Coons, winning 37.9% of the vote. She has suggested COVID-19 vaccines are part of a satanic plot. A Delaware Republican who said coronavirus vaccines were part of a satanic plan to cause "mass death" is recovering from COVID-19, she announced Thursday, saying the illness had caused her to lose "all of my senses." Lauren Witzke, a self-styled "Christian nationalist" who embraced QAnon and support from white supremacists, was the Delaware GOP's candidate for Senate in 2020, receiving 186,000 votes in her failed run against Democratic incumbent Sen. Chris Coons. In a post on Gab, a social network popular with right-wing extremists, Witzke claimed she was "recovering from this insane bio-weapon called Covid." The 33-year-old, who has worked as a political commentator for the right-wing Christian conspiracy site TruNews, said she had decided not to tell anyone earlier so as not to alert "the $&!#libs in the media." "This bio-weapon is demonic," she wrote. "I've lost all of my senses and struggle with constant indifference, brain fog, and I've lost my joy." In posts shared on her Telegram channel, Witzke blamed TruNews for making her aware of the infection, insisting that nasal swabs were ultimately responsible for her getting COVID-19. "I'm an idiot for submitting to their demands and getting tested," she wrote, "and yes I know I need a good husband in my life to keep me from making bad decisions." (<--------------- ) She left the company in September. Prior to her departure, Witzke attributed a June outbreak of COVID-19 among TruNews staff to a "demonic attack" for having hosted far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart writer who now claims to be "ex-gay." "I don't think it's any coincidence that the TruNews crew all got deathly ill, got very sick, right after they brought Milo on," she said, as reported by PinkNews. Witzke currently works with Stew Peters, an online broadcaster who has repeatedly pushed false claims about vaccines. On his program, Witzke herself claimed that COVID-19 vaccinations were a "mass death scale injection" that would precede the end of the world.

  3. Russia orders a one-week lockdown with covid cases at record high Vaccine hesitancy a big problem in Russia There's a growing belief that we're in the final throws of the covid pandemic but that's not the case in Russia, where Putin today ordered everyone to stay home from work from Oct 30 to Nov 7. The rising cases in the UK are another worry. The hope is that low vaccinations rates make Russia an outlier. Only 31% of people there are fully vaccinated.
  4. The only thing that could crash the stock market is a rapid rise in interest rates. With governments around the world running massive deficits and controlling interest rates that isn't going to happen. Look at the Fed's overnight repos. They are currently consistently in the $1.5 trillion dollar range. The repo is a reverse lending facility where Investment banks and dealers lend money to the NY Fed overnight. They have so much friggin cash sloshing around they lend the Fed $1.5 trillion each night and the Fed gives it right back to them with .05% interest per annum. How does any market crash when there's literally at least $1.5 trillion dollars looking for a home? Where else is that money going to find any liquid yield apart from the stock market?
  5. That son of a B**ch promised us "Sunny Ways".
  6. The Federal Reserve (USA), The ECB (Europe) along with nearly every other Central Bank have been inflating the monetary supply at an obscene rate since the Great Recession in 2008. In fact the Fed used to report a stat called M2 Monetary supply. In about 2010 they stopped reporting it all together saying no one cared about the report. They have been attempting to re-write the laws that govern finance since then. When I say laws I don't mean actual laws but rather the natural laws of supply vs demand that keep things in check. The central banks have a target of 2% per year for inflation and have been missing that target on the downside for at least the last ten years. On a ten year average even with this recent bout of inflation it wouldn't even register a 2% average per year for the last ten years. The tune every Central banker is singing is that this bout of inflation is transitory. It remains to be seen if that is true. The natural laws of supply and demand state if you inflate the monetary supply inflation follows. Voila. This isn't Biden's, Trump's or Trudeau's fault. This is on Ben Bernanke, Janet Yellen, Jay Powell, Mario Draghi, Christine LaGarde, Hideki Kuroda etc. for the most reckless monetary policy one can imagine.
  7. It was drilled into his head when he was younger that there are two types of people in the world, winners and losers. To Dotard the worst thing in the world in being perceived as a loser. In his mind it's a fate worse than death. He's literally holding his party and the country hostage so he can pretend he didn't lose and is still a winner. Your description of him as a 75 year old toddler could not be more correct.
  8. I think everyone knows Eugene sucks.
  9. Pete Carroll: Seahawks have talked to Cam Newton Posted by Michael David Smith on October 18, 2021, 12:55 PM EDT The Seahawks reached out to free agent quarterback Cam Newton after Russell Wilson went down with a finger injury last week. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed today that the Seahawks and Newton touched base, although Carroll indicated that it was more about doing their due diligence with every available quarterback than an indication that Newton was likely to sign. “Just so you know, we have talked to him. We’re talking to everybody that could help us,” Carroll said to Mike Salk of 710 ESPN. Newton’s departure from New England was preceded by him missing five days of practice when he was out of town and missed daily testing at the team facility — an issue that wouldn’t have come up if he had been vaccinated at the time. Newton got the COVID-19 vaccine since then, and he said he wants to play.
  10. Former U.S. secretary of state Colin Powell dies of complications from COVID-19 Colin Powell, the son of Jamaican immigrants who rose to become the first Black U.S. secretary of state and top military officer but whose reputation was tainted in 2003 when he touted spurious intelligence to the United Nations to make the case for war with Iraq, has died at the age of 84. Powell died of complications from COVID-19, his family said early Monday on his Facebook page. He was 84. In the post, his family said Powell had been fully vaccinated and was receiving care at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. The Powell family's social media post did not address whether Powell had any underlying illnesses, but Peggy Cifrino, Powell's longtime aide, told The Associated Press he had been treated over the past few years for multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. In a long military career that included service in the Vietnam War, Powell rose to public prominence by serving as national security adviser under President Ronald Reagan beginning in 1987, two years later becoming the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In the latter role he oversaw the U.S. invasion of Panama and later the U.S. invasion of Kuwait to oust the Iraqi army in 1991. Powell, who resisted calls to run for president himself later that decade, would go on to be nominated by President George W. Bush to serve as secretary of state in 2001. Powell was the first Black person to serve as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and secretary of state. Bush called him a "great public servant" in a statement mourning his death. "He was such a favourite of presidents that he earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom — twice," said Bush. more in the link https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/us-powell-obit-1.6214736
