What do these 11 Americans have in common?

- Antonin Scalia, the late conservative Supreme Court justice
- Miriam Adelson, the wife a Republican megadonor
- Orrin Hatch, a former Republican senator
- Roger Staubach, an athlete and longtime conservative Republican
- Arthur Laffer, a derided Republican economist
- Edwin Meese, a highly controversial former Republican attorney general
- Mariano Rivera, an athlete and Trump supporter
- Roger Penske, a businessman and Republican donor
- Rush Limbaugh, a far-right media personality
- Jim Ryun, a former Republican congressman
- Lou Holtz, a former coach and longtime Republican

ANSWER: They have all received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the last 2 years from Chump; Scalia's was given posthumously.

It was around this time two years ago when Donald Trump thought it'd be a good idea to give the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, to the wife of a Republican megadonor. A Washington Post analysis noted at the time that Miriam Adelson's medal reflected "a growing pattern: one of Trump awarding a large majority of such medals ... to supporters, to Republicans, and to recipients who fit his political agenda."

Two years later, as the outgoing president awarded former football coach Lou Holtz with the nation's highest civilian honor, the pattern remains unchanged.

In case this isn't obvious, this honor hasn't traditionally been politicized, and presidents haven't traditionally seen it as a reward for political allies.

Going forward, perhaps we can make the Presidential Medal of Freedom great again?

If astrology is your "thing," here's Kamala Harris' star chart

link: https://www.astrotheme.com/Focus-Astro-celebrity-Kamala-Harris.php

A responsible and Saturnian Libra
As Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris as his running mate, he made a big political splash and a welter of publicity. The senator and attorney general of California is indeed a heavyweight with a strong personality. She is driven by a trend well-disposed toward minorities and women, for a long time kept away from power. Does Harris have a special future ahead of her? In any case, her natal chart provides very nice cards to play along.

Born with the Sun in Libra, she has only this luminary in this sign. However, the Sun is well-aspected, since he is involved in an Air Grand Trine, with the Ascendant in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius.

It must also be underlined that the Sun is in conjunction with Mercury, who is already in Scorpio, and that Saturn too is in conjunction with the Midheaven, already in Pisces. Therefore, the Grand Trine is sliding towards the Water element. As if, in addition to intellectual and communication capacities, there is a touch of intuition and sensitivity, very much propitious for her position (whatever it is, considering the fact that anyway, her career is terrific).

Besides, Saturn near the Midheaven leaves his mark of iron on the social and professional destiny of Harris, endowing her with great rigor and a taste for hard work.

A Kite full of capacity for achievement
It must be noted that the Kite is the main pattern linking those planets, for the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, the Midheaven, and the Ascendant work together under the guidance of the Moon in Aries, in sextile with these two angles (AS-MC).

It must be kept in mind that Harris was born exactly on a full Moon, a phase indicating a character needing to put things in perspective, a quality which also reminds of people having the Sun in Libra. Therefore, this peace-loving (Libra) lady desires to throw herself into battle with all the ardour of Aries.

Her biography indicates that she often demonstrated that she is enterprising and ambitious. She was born in a family of brilliant intellectuals; her mother holds a PhD in endocrinology, and her father was a professor emeritus of economics. Harris studied in French-speaking Montréal before she returned to California to learn political sciences and law.

The Kite pattern and a majority of auspicious aspects probably made things easy for her when she started off, and enabled her to do well without needing to fight too hard.

The Moon in Aries describes pioneers and go-getters
Nevertheless, Harris' temperament is based on a quite turbulent Moon in Aries, because the latter is in trine with Mars in Leo. In addition to what has just been said, this prompts Harris to behave like a real Amazon.

On the one hand, she very rapidly became known for championing causes dear to her heart such as for example the defence of molested people, the better control of firearms, the dialogue with immigrants. This logically led her to go into politics with the Democratic Party.

Although the Sun is the only planet in Libra, we observe that Harris can use the assets of this sign very well. She gained a public good reputation as a progressive prosecutor who contributed to the tough policy of crime repression prevailing in California after the seventies, within both the Republicans and the Democrats.

Democrats' new yard sign

Anyone who lives in an area where the "Stop the Steal" yard signs are popping up...
This should shut them up very quickly.

When do they stop this and shut it down?

Repukes have to quit this fuckery! It's over guys, even Chump knows it's over.

Chump is itching to start campaigning for 2024 already. He can't grift until the campaign donations roll in, we all know his scheme. Well guess what - there's no campaign for 2024 as long as you keep this foolish pretense up.

Stick a fork in it, call it a day. Time to move on.

Potentially thousands of requested mail ballots lost in Butler County, official says

HARRISBURG — Potentially thousands of mail ballots requested by Butler County voters appear to be lost, a county official said Wednesday, and the U.S. Postal Service has been asked to immediately investigate what happened to them.

A USPS spokesperson, meanwhile, said the agency is “unaware of any significant delays or issues and is in regular contact with the Board of Election as we work to locate and deliver ballots as they are presented to us.”

As of Tuesday, Pennsylvania voters are no longer able to apply for an absentee or mail-in ballot.

Nearly 40,000 registered voters in the county requested mail ballots. So far, only 24% of them have been returned to the county, by far the lowest rate among the state’s 67 counties. The county with the next-lowest return rate, Fayette, has received 50% of requested ballots.

I live in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, which is adjacent to Butler County. I experienced NO DELAY in receiving or sending my ballot. In both directions my ballot was received the next day after sending via U.S. Mail.
