Wyoming governor quietly mobilized Guard troops in Cheyenne

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — While the Wyoming National Guard was sending more than 100 troops to Washington, D.C., to help with security around President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January, Gov. Mark Gordon quietly mobilized dozens of Guard troops and others in case of violence at the state Capitol in Cheyenne.

The all-but-undisclosed local deployment Jan. 15-21, specifics of which came to light Friday after an inquiry by The Associated Press, stood in stark contrast with the state’s contribution to U.S. Capitol security praised by Gordon and other top Wyoming officials.

“Thank you to the @wyoguard members who are serving our country by providing support at today’s Presidential inauguration. Wyomingites are grateful for your service,” Gordon, a Republican, tweeted on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

Trickle up economics works!

Residents of Stockton, Calif., who received $500 a month from a first-of-its-kind guaranteed-income program were more likely to find full-time jobs, be happy and stay healthy, according to a year-long study published Wednesday.
Supporters of universal income programs — which provide regular, unconditional payments from the government to people — say the findings should dispel common criticisms of the idea, such as that money with no strings attached disincentivizes people to work or encourages them to spend it on drugs and alcohol. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03/03/stockton-universal-basic-income/

China has denied that it required US diplomats to undergo anal swab tests for coronavirus.

Anal swabs involve inserting a cotton swab 3-5cm (1.2-2.0 inches) into the anus and gently rotating it.

It is not known how many US diplomats may have had the test.

"The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it," a state department spokesperson told Vice News on Wednesday.

The State Department added that it was told by Beijing that the test was given "in error".

Trump Says Cruz Cheated, Wants Results Overturned

The past is prologue. The Tempest, Act 2, Scene I.

Plus his wife is ugly and his dad killed JFK.

Cruz is just the latest good dad crossing the border to make a better life for his daughter.

Mitch and Pence are getting dragged by the freepers:

The Trump Insurrection was predicted by Babylon 5

President Clark and Trump Scorched America?
10-15-2020, 03:37 PM

First of all I want to say that I hope I do not offend anyone with this topic. I'm not an American, but I have seen what has been happening in the U.S. this year (2020).

I was watching the episode End Game of Babylon 5. As we know, when the game was essentially up for Clark, he turned Earth's Defence Grid onto Earth and left the message "Scorched Earth".

With things so volatile in the U.S., does anyone think that the same kind of mentality might happen after the current U.S. Election?

Such severe rioting could be triggered by either side's supporters. Worse case is that some comments could come from President Trump (if he loses) that could be viewed as a rallying cry for his hard core supporters. I'm really hoping that if President Trump in fact does lose the election that he doesn't send out Tweets indicating something like "Liberate America" and viewed as a rallying cry.

I hope I'm wrong, but I think the potential of severe violence might be there.

Any thoughts?

Myanmar Leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Is Detained Amid Coup Fears

Perhaps a delegation of US coup leaders could help make peace. America’s grossest product.

Trump Is Gone.

America's anti-democratic Senate, by the numbers

In the incoming Senate, Democratic senators will represent at least 20,314,962 more people than their Republican counterparts — and that’s if we assume that Republicans win both runoff elections in Georgia. If the two Georgia seats go to the Democrats, the Senate will be split 50-50, but the Democratic half will represent 41,549,808 more people than the Republican half.
