  1. According to BBC, the Minnesota Pork Producers Association claims 10,000 pigs are being euthanized each day. That is a lot of waste. Very sad.

  2. I don’t know that much about it, so I can’t complain.
    I really don’t have anywhere to go, so I can’t complain about the lockdown.
    But I save sympathy for the millions that I think are being affected about this shutdown and I’m convinced that we are going about it the wrong way.

    Someone prophesied that a revival of religion will come of this. But I don’t see any evidence yet.
    We really need to pray for our country.
    The “land of the free and home of the brave” may not survive this.
    Let’s pray.

  3. Praying.

    The problem with the pigs is the meat butchers got sick and sort of closed for reconfiguration and to let sick people be sick at home. The pigs kept growing and are outgrowing the processing ability. They need to be butchered on time or outgrow the machinery. Not enough people available and with the knowledge to hand butcher massive hogs. And chickens. And beef. And then there are the eggs and dairy…..

  8. I love the smell of total vindication in the morning. 🙂

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/house-intelligence-committee-releases-transcripts-from-russia-investigation

    “The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday released transcripts of interviews conducted by the panel during its Russia probe in 2017 and 2018 — amid demands by Republicans to make them public after being cleared by the intelligence community.

    The committee, led by California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, publicly released 57 transcripts, as well as additional material, from the committee’s investigation.

    In a statement, Schiff did not back down from his contention — fiercely disputed by Republicans — that President Trump and his campaign “invited illicit Russian help” to win the 2016 election.

    “Despite the many barriers put in our way by the then-Republican Majority, and attempts by some key witnesses to lie to us and obstruct our investigation, the transcripts that we are releasing today show precisely what Special Counsel Robert Mueller also revealed: That the Trump campaign, and Donald Trump himself, invited illicit Russian help, made full use of that help, and then lied and obstructed the investigations in order to cover up this misconduct,” Schiff said in a statement.

    But the transcripts are full of testimony from officials who said they were unaware of evidence showing coordination between the Trump team and the Russians.”

    Schiff continues to lie and fantasize, but the transcripts speak for themselves, and they vindicate the president, and those who said so all along.

    Enjoy! 🙂

  9. And Obama and Biden were in on this criminal farce.

    “DOJ Documents: Rosenstein Expanded Russia Probe Beyond Scope, Obama and Biden Knew Details From Flynn’s Wire-Tapped Calls

    Nothing burger.”

    “The Department of Justice dropped its case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn on Thursday due to new information.

    The DOJ also released documents in its motion. These documents showed President Barack Obama knew details from Flynn’s wire-tapped calls, and then-Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein expanded the Russia-Trump collusion probe beyond its primary scope.

    Michael Flynn
    Obama knew the details from the wire-tapped call between Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016, which surprised then-Deputy Attorney Sally Yates.

    It shocked Yates due to Obama’s “own history with Flynn.” He fired Flynn “as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014” due to insubordination. Flynn claimed Obama fired him over “his aggressive stance on combating Islamic extremism.”

    Obama even encouraged incoming President Donald Trump not to hire Flynn.

    From Fox News:

    On January 5, 2017, Yates attended an Oval Office meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, according to the newly declassified documents, including an FD-302 FBI witness report. They were discussing Russian election interference, along with national security adviser Susan Rice and other members of the national security council.

    After the briefing, Obama asked Yates and Comey to “stay behind,” and said he had “learned of the information about Flynn” and his conversation with Russia’s ambassador about sanctions. Obama “specified that he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information.”

    A previous memo from Rice stated that Biden also stayed behind after the main briefing had ended.

    At that point, the documents showed, “Yates had no idea what the president was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation.’ Comey did not talk about prosecution in the meeting.”

    The exhibit continues: “It was not clear to Yates from where the President first received the information. Yates did not recall Comey’s response to the President’s question about how to treat Flynn. She was so surprised by the information she was hearing that she was having a hard time processing it and listening to the conversation at the same time.” Yates would later say that she was concerned Flynn would be vulnerable to blackmail because of his interactions with Russia.”

  12. AJ – I have only barely been paying attention to the situation with General Flynn, but was aware of your stance on it. So I was surprised to come across a friend on Facebook saying that General Flynn had confessed, under penalty of perjury, to being a paid mole working inside the government for an Islamist dictator, among the other crimes.

    Is that true? I think I had read about some kind of confession, but forgot what it was about.

  13. What is the source of this information your friend has unearthed, Kizzie? I’ve only heard that Flynn confessed (under duress) to lying to the FBI about a single meeting or conversation he had with the Russian ambassador—not anything about an Islamist dictator or being a mole.
