Hawaii invites remote workers. 'Movers & Shakas' Club & a free round-trip!!



Hawaii is offering free round trips to remote workers who want to live there temporarily

What better way to survive a pandemic than to do it on a beach in Hawaii?

For anyone who finds the idea dreamy, Hawaii is offering free round trip tickets to Oahu to out-of-state remote workers who want to live and work there while contributing to the state's economy.

The state launched the temporary residency program, known as "Movers and Shakas," in collaboration with schools and businesses.
It's accepting its first group of applicants until December 15.

"Movers and Shakas is a small step towards economic recovery and diversifying our economy," Jason Higa, the group's founder, told CNN.

Summary: S.2227 — 116th Congress (2019-2020)

Introduced in Senate (07/23/2019)
Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019 or the MORE Act of 2019

This bill decriminalizes marijuana.

Specifically, it removes marijuana from the list of scheduled substances under the Controlled Substances Act and eliminates criminal penalties for an individual who manufactures, distributes, or possesses marijuana.

The bill also makes other changes, including the following:

*replaces statutory references to marijuana and marihuana with cannabis,
*requires the Bureau of Labor Statistics to regularly publish demographic data on cannabis business owners and employees,
*establishes a trust fund to support various programs and services for individuals and businesses in communities impacted by the war on drugs,
*imposes a 5% tax on cannabis products and requires revenues to be deposited into the trust fund,
*makes Small Business Administration loans and services available to entities that are cannabis-related legitimate businesses or service providers,
*prohibits the denial of federal public benefits to a person on the basis of certain cannabis-related conduct or convictions,
*prohibits the denial of benefits and protections under immigration laws on the basis of a cannabis-related event (e.g., conduct or a conviction), and
*establishes a process to expunge convictions and conduct sentencing review hearings related to federal cannabis offenses.


The House bill was introduced by Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler last July.

"I have long believed that the criminalization of marijuana has been a mistake, and the racially disparate enforcement of marijuana laws has only compounded this mistake, with serious consequences, particularly for communities of color," Nadler said in a statement Friday before the vote.

California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, now the vice president-elect, has introduced a companion bill in the Senate, but it has been stuck in the Republican-controlled Senate Finance Committee.

President-elect Joe Biden supports decriminalizing marijuana and the automatic expungement of prior criminal records for marijuana possession, but not full legalization of the substance, a Biden campaign spokesman said last year.


The Georgia runoff race is key to a much better world.

Omg..😅 No place is safe from Spam!!



Must See Maddow tonight. Thurs/Dec 3rd./ Stephanie Winston Wolkoff,.....

Author of Melania & Me & also listed on the now-deposed Ivanka's Inagural Emails.

Btw, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, has also been deposed, thus narrowing the walls of Ivanka's corruption.

The deposition listed below shows the emails concerning the overcharging of Trump Hotel.

(Much more in depth replies at the deposition twitter acct)


The dates don’t match. The one Ivanka shared is before this email.
John P. Jones
that’s the point entirely. after Ivanka’s ‘exculpatory’ email, an outside advisor weighs in, cautions the group that they are still veering into criminal behavior - price remains overblown ($100K) for a non-competitively sourced, private family party at the comitee’s expense.

Maddow discusses on tonight's show...

A reminder from Jen Psaki

Did AG Barr get blindsided by Chief Judge Howell?

There's this possibility, for the sake of coincidence:


Who's (redacted) name is this? Trump's Atty, (Jenna) Ellis ?


Anyone got Felix Sater, thief & Trump Org money launderer on their Pardon bingo card?


From Law and Crime:

A federal judge on Monday partially advanced a lawsuit accusing Russian mafia-tied businessman Felix Sater of laundering millions stolen from Kazakhstan’s BTA Bank through Trump Organization properties.

“In this case, Kazakhstan’s largest city and a Kazakhstani bank seek to recover millions of dollars in stolen funds from those who allegedly helped the culprits launder them,”
U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan summarized in a 25-page opinion dismissing only two counts of a five-count complaint.
Felix Sater—the alleged ringleader of the money-laundering operation—along with his associate Daniel Ridloff and several business entities they control, move to dismiss.”

Like Sater, Ridloff was also formerly associated with the Trump Organization. The lawsuit stems from allegations of the systematic looting of Kazakhstan’s largest city Almaty and its bank in 2009.

The Court emphasizes that the Kazakh entities will need to adduce evidence showing the Sater defendants’ deceptive conduct and their justifiable reliance on that conduct in significantly greater detail to meet their burdens of production and of proof as the case progresses,”
Nathan wrote. “However, at this stage, the Court concludes that it is not clear on the face of the complaint that their claims are untimely, and so declines to dismiss any claims on that basis.
