It has been an arduous couple of weeks since Joe Biden won the election. Donald Trump has been 'cooling his heels' when it comes to a transition, and it's made life for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris extra stressful.
On Monday, Emily Murphy, the admin of the General Services Administration (GSA), consented for the transition between current President Donald Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden to begin.
Murphy wrote a letter to Biden on Monday:
Donald Trump quickly addressed the announcement on Twitter.
Joe Biden's campaign also released a statement, saying that the decision is "needed step to begin tackling the challenges facing our nation, including getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track. This final decision is a definitive administrative action to formally begin the transition process with federal agencies. In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests, and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration’s efforts to hollow out government agencies."
The move will allot Biden's team $6.3 million to help with the transition, along with more funding to assist in preparing his staff for the transition.
Murphy was hesitant to allow the transition to begin. She claimed she and her family received death threats because of the delay. She made her decision based on Trump's court losses and the vote certifications in many of the state Trump had lawsuits in. She determined that Biden was the "likely" winner of the election.
Here's why I am skeptical of this transition:
Donald Trump and his team have proven to be a nest of snakes. They lie, cheat, and steal, due to their irrational fear of losing. Also, the very last thing that Trump's team wants to do is anger Trump.
I have this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that Trump's team is going to try and sabotage Biden's transition. They will provide him with fictitious intel, especially about coronavirus. They will destroy actual documents, pay people to stay quiet, and threaten anyone who doesn't comply. All Trump wants to do is sabotage Biden. He will never forgive the fact that he lost against Biden.
For the last few days, I've gone undercover on an ultra-conservative social media site. I looked at what members were saying about the transition, and all of them believe that Democrats, especially Biden, threatened Murphy and her family. Trump expressed the same sentiment.
I will say this, the ultra-conservatives are unraveling. Now that the transition is starting, and now that states are certifying their votes, the ultra-conservatives are worried that Trump will give up. Trump feeds on attention and praise. He's like a toddler in that respect.
His followers are either worried or full of rage. Trump will use this to inspire himself to pad the intel he gives to Biden.
I am hoping that I am wrong, but I don't think I am. Shit could get seriously scary the next few months.
We are in the midst of a second wave of coronavirus, and the second wave is predicted to be worse than the first wave. Many in the Church community have thumbed their nose at all of the CDC guidelines, stating that the guidelines are a violation of their rights (These people fail to realize that it is a violation of ALL of our rights to be exposed to covid).
The Christian Medical and Dental Association made a plea with non-conforming Churches to switch to virtual services until the surge is over. The association even called out Christians who refuse to adhere to the guidelines, saying: Christians "appear to care only about individual freedoms, and they don't care that they may be contributing to others getting this illness." The statement also called these Christians "selfish."
The association is very concerned about asymptomatic individuals spreading the virus to vulnerable people (elderly, immuno-compromised, those who are pregnant, etc).
Multiple Churches around America have violated the rules, and some have even filed lawsuits. The lawsuits claim that limiting in-person gatherings violate their religious rights (again, these rogue Churches fail to realize that it is a violation of ALL OUR RIGHTS to be exposed to covid).
White evangelical Christians and Churches are the ones that have ignored the rules since covid became an issue in this country. This same group is also against all covid 19 vaccinations.
While the association has expressed their desire for Churches to adhere to the CDC guidance, they know that these ultra conservative Churches will still do what they've always done: hold in-person services at full capacity, sans masks.
You can't fix stupid. Those conservative Christians only care about themselves, and the Churches only care about making money. There is no money in virtual services. It sort of comes down to politics: most of these conservatives follow Donald Trump around like he's God. Trump doesn't wear a mask, Trump doesn't take covid seriously, why should they?
Additionally, why should they care about protecting their neighbor? It's not like it's in the Bible or anything....right?
GUYS! Am I the only person who paid attention to the teachings of Jesus Christ? Jesus cared for the sick and lame. He was modest, and he loved people deeply. There was nothing he wouldn't do for someone in need. I know some of you conservatives will say: "I help out at soup kitchens, I take care of my mom, I give to charity." That's great, Karen. However, have you ever considered, for even a second, that wearing a mask is how you can care for the humans around you? You could be asymptomatic, and you could pass the virus onto your mom, your spouse, your child, your co-worker, the young girl ringing up your groceries at the grocery store, even your pet! To err on the side of caution, wear the mask and social distance. THIS is how you can be Christ-like and love others as yourself.
CHURCHES! I know some of you have boasted about not having confirmed cases of covid in your congregation (I'm looking at you River of Life in Tolland CT). Do you honestly think conservative Christians will come out their mouth and say that they have the virus? No. They will think if they step inside Church and people lay hands on them, they will be instantaneously cured. Also, just because you don't have confirmed cases, does not mean you don't have asymptomatic cases in your congregation.
Look, I know I will get comments about me being a faithless bitch. I'm ready! Show me what you got!
Listen, God made everything, right? Included in everything is science. Science and healers go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to finding treatment, vaccines, and cures for global pandemics. Thumbing your nose at science is basically YOU thumbing YOUR nose at God.
It's up to you as to what type of "Christian" you want to be. Idk about you, but the Christ-like Christianity sounds pretty nice to me.
Just remember, if you aren't loving your neighbor as yourself, you are breaking God's most important commandment of all.
Get your heads out of your asses! Social distance and wear a mask!
It's the drip heard 'round the world. If you watched Thursday's news conference, not only were you dumbfounded by Rudy Giuliani's conspiracy theories, you were puzzled as to what was dripping down the sides of his head!
Giuliani, Donald Trump's personal defense lawyer, started his press conference with the tired conspiracy theories that have already been debunked. He went on and on about how mail-in ballots are fraudulent, election machines were tampered with, ballots were dumped, and that Democrat's are the culprits of a massive election scheme designed to ruin "Lord" Donald Trump.
Toward the middle of the press conference, Giuliani did a horrible impression of Joe Pesci's character from the movie "My Cousin Vinny." The impression had no basis on the pile of verbal diarrhea spewing forth from his mouthpiece.
Shortly after, Giuliani sprung a leak. A dark substance started oozing down his face. An individual that was operating the Trump campaign's press conference feed was heard saying, "You see f---ing Rudy's hair dye dripping down his face?" (video below)
Of course, the internet had mad jokes about it:
What the hell is going on here? First, Giuliani is caught touching his old guy genitalia. Now his shoe polish hair dye is dripping off his face, like it's trying to escape from his bullshit.
You know you're a terrible person when your own hair dye doesn't wanna claim you. Dayum!
Ladies, ladies, ladies! Your 2020 'Sexiest Man Alive' is tall, dark, and handsome. He is Michael B. Jordan!
The announcement was made on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Tuesday night, which has been a tradition for many years. Jordan was brought out in a yellow chemical hazmat suit, none of his features were visible. Kimmel let his audience guess who was in the hazmat suit. One fan guessed Michael B. Jordan, and then he was unveiled.
Michael B. Jordan has been an A-lister, talented badass for many years. The 33-year-old hottie has been in Soap Operas, HBO series 'The Wire,' NBC show 'Friday Night Lights,' and more. He has been in films, such as 'Creed,' 'Black Panther,' and 'Fantastic Four.'
He has won a ton of awards for his work, and from what I can gather, he is single.
Jordan was humbled by the honor of being People's 'Sexiest Man Alive,' saying: "I think the expectation now is a little unreasonable. But it's a cool title to have...They told me the news and it was a moment like, ‘S***, really? Me?’...But it was a cool moment."
Fans were all for it, and showed their support on social media:
I congratulate you, Michael B. Jordan, you fine tall drink of water. Yum! Finally, 2020 has gotten something right, besides the election!
Michael B. Jordan, CALL ME!
Donald Trump hasn't aged gracefully since he LOST the election (for the married cousins/Trump supporters in the back: HE LOST THE ELECTION. HIS DAYS IN THE WHITE HOUSE ARE NUMBERED. HE'S GONNA BE THROWN OUT LIKE YESTERDAY'S TRASH). He has spent more effort in disputing the election results, than he has governing this country in the last 4 years. He has further divided America, and he has made a mockery of our democracy. Many of his high-profile friends are turning against him. Others are pleading with him to accept the loss (LOSS).
On Friday, President Trump held a press conference to discuss his 'Operation Warp Speed' program, and his commitment to preventing a nationwide lockdown. While his "blah blah blah" dialogue commenced, people fixated on his gray toupee..erm, hair.
Either he ran out of blonde hair dye, or even the hair dye can't hide the stress that he's under. Folks, I was a psychology major in college. Usually when someone has physical symptoms of their stress, it means they are hiding something big. Perhaps Trump is beginning to see what all of us see: that he LOST the election. After he is evicted from the White House, he faces criminal charges. He knows that the life he had before is going to change for the worse. All of his past sins are catching up to him, and he will soon answer for them. The gray hair is visible proof of all of this.
Other physical symptoms of Trump's stress may include:
Last night, millions tuned into the 3rd and final debate of the Presidential election.
During a segment about climate change, Joe Biden brought up Trump's extreme disdain for Windmills.
"He thinks wind causes cancer. Windmills. It's the fastest growing jobs..." -Joe Biden
At that point, Trump did what he does best: rudely interrupt.
"I know more about wind than you do. It's extremely expensive. Kills all the birds."
I didn't know that the topic had switched to Trump's farts. Obviously, Trump knows more about breaking wind than Biden. The man spends a fortune on fast food, and then he crop dusts Pence as he plays golf. Every bird within a 5 mile radius drops dead within 2 mins.
Trump needs to stay on topic during interviews, or else his election chances will stink worse than his organic, Trump-made wind power.
Remember the good ole days when Scott Baio was just a pretty face, and didn't talk outside of his TV shows? Good times.
Unfortunately, those times are over. Social media has given him a microphone, and his Trump worshipping ass won't STFU.
His latest inane tirade has to do with a 'Happy Days' cast reunion. The reunion is raising money to support Democrats running for office.
Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Don Most, Anson Williams, and Marion Ross will be reprising their roles for the fundraiser. Obvi, Scott Baio will not be in attendance, since it would require him to have a brain. 'Full House' actor and good human being John Stamos will be taking over as ChaChi (Scott Baio's role on Happy Days).
Scott Baio did what all good spineless internet bullies do: he slammed the reunion on social media, and on Fox News.
"I'm not on board, obviously, because I don't believe in socialism and Marxists. I think Stamos always wanted to be Chachi instead of playing second fiddle to a 3-year-old. It's good to know that Stamos is part of the Hollywood elite Marxist crap."
Your head doesn't have to stay all the way up Trump's doughy white bottom. You can remove it and seek help. There are millions out there that will assist in your deprogramming, and the retrieval of your soul.
Ever been so turned on during a Zoom call (a business call), that you dropped trough and pleasured yourself? No? Then you've never been on Jeffrey Toobin's level of creep.
Jeffrey Toobin, a reporter for The New Yorker and a Chief Legal Analyst for CNN, was suspended from The New Yorker for exposing himself to colleagues on a Zoom call. The incident is being called an "accident." Toobin released a statement to Vice regarding the situation:
"I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers. I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video."
The 60-year-old is also "on leave" from CNN, and a few of his appearances have been postponed indefinitely.
I am NOT buying that this was an accident. Dude wanted to rub it out to his colleagues. All he is doing is trying to save face by playing the accident card. You don't just take your dick out and jack it in the middle of a meeting. He wanted everyone to see his 60-year-old meat stick.
What makes this story tragic is that kids might have watched him do this. A lot of kids are home with their parents, and any of the men and women on the call could have kids peeking around the computer to see what was going on. My son does that all the time.
Jeffrey Toobin, you could have fucking waited until AFTER the call. Was it necessary for your old ass to take Viagra before a Zoom meeting? Also, are you totally opposed to the concept of pants? Wear them. They are nice. They don't have to be black slacks. Do what all of us do on Zoom calls: Wear a nice shirt, and pajama pants.
Easy peasy. Now go and get yourself help. Keep your Toobin in your pants, Jack.

Amy Coney Barrett once made a ruling that "calling a Black employee the N word does NOT make for a hostile work environment."
In the midst of her confirmation hearing, Amy Coney Barrett's 'sins of the past' are catching up to her. In 2019, she ruled in a discrimination case that use of the N word in the workplace had not "created a hostile or abusive working environment."
She did say that dropping the N word was abhorrent behavior, but she decided that there wasn't a strong enough case of racism, despite the fact that someone was called the N word.
"The n-word is an egregious racial epithet. That said, Smith can't win simply by proving that the word was uttered. He must also demonstrate that Colbert's use of this word altered the conditions of his employment and created a hostile or abusive working environment."
Barrett is the adopted mother of two beautiful black children. Every single person of color has been called a racial slur. Just because her adopted children are being raised in a white family, it does not omit them from the same prejudices that everyone else goes through. They will undoubtedly be called the N word in school, and the workplace. When that happens, how is Amy Coney Barrett going to react? "Oh, it's not a hostile enough situation, kids. It's not a big deal." It IS a big deal. One that she has the power to stop. She doesn't stop it because she is a racist.
Just because a white family adopts a child of color into their family, it does NOT mean that you know everything about racism. If you aren't 100% white, you are a person of color. You get called names. Amy Coney Barrett needs to educate herself on the history of racism. I also need to add that every person of color has been racially profiled. That is a reality that Amy Coney Barrett needs to understand.
My younger brother is half Puerto Rican (we have different fathers). He's been called the S word. I'm not 100% white myself. I have African DNA, as well as Portuguese/Spanish DNA. When you are not 100% white in Trump's America, you are a target.
When it comes to racism, if you bury your head in the sand, you are making the problem worse. Amy Coney Barrett is ignorant to the topic of racism, and that WILL NOT help her two children of color navigate this world.
Does Amy Coney Barrett know anything about African-American culture? Readers, please don't come at me with "She probably doesn't see color." That's the fucking problem! When you claim to NOT SEE COLOR, you are ignoring the hundreds of years, thousands of years people of color have been kept down. You are ignoring black women and black children being sold, beaten, and raped. You are ignoring black men who were whipped and used as slaves. Don't ignore history, folks. Get woke quick!
Amy Coney Barrett is the absolute WORST person to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Amy Coney Barrett supports EVERYTHING that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is against. She cannot become our Supreme Court Justice!
Get this guys: Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump's little girl (and taboo wet dream), said out her mouth that Donald Trump took "unprecedented" action at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in America. She added that "when most people, except through the lens of revisionist history were not taking it seriously, on the Hill or elsewhere, Donald Trump took it seriously."
She must have graduated from Trump University, because Donald Trump hasn't been taking it seriously AT ALL! Not only does he call the virus a hoax, he mocks anyone who had contracted the virus, and the families of those who have died from the virus.
Trump even blamed his diagnosis on the military soldiers who attended the Amy Coney Barrett nomination.
The way Donald Trump and his brainwashed douchebags talk about coronavirus, they make it sound like the virus is gone. The coronavirus has not been defeated. In fact, we are at the start of a second wave.
This family is more fucked up than The Duggars. Something in the buttermilk ain't clean!
