  1. This might be news worthy…..

    For those who care about such things….

    I love the gaslighting from CNBC too, sure Omicron….

    As if calling out sick would show up on the unemployment rolls…..

    “Private payrolls fell by 301,000 for January versus the estimate for a 200,000 gain, according to payrolls processing firm ADP.”

    Told you it would be bad. When they go to damage control mode before the numbers come out, it’s sure to be bad. They’re so predictable….

  2. It’s fine, I’m sure….

    “In the 11 days since a truck hauling 100 monkeys from Mauritius crashed in Pennsylvania, one woman who got close to the scattered crates of monkeys on the highway has been treated for possible symptoms of illness.

    And Kenya Airways, which is believed to have transported the monkeys to the United States, has decided not to renew its expiring contract to ship research primates here.

    No other reports of possible illness related to the crash have emerged, according to state and federal health officials, who said it was not known whether the Pennsylvania woman’s symptoms were related to the cynomolgus macaques, which were being quarantined and monitored for diseases.

    Experts said that direct exposure to monkey saliva or feces could be dangerous, but that the risk of a broader outbreak was low.

    The woman, Michele Fallon, 45, of Danville, Pa., said on Tuesday that she had been given two doses of the rabies vaccine, antiviral medication and antibiotic eye drops after she had a runny nose, a cough and filmy buildup and crust in her eye. She also vomited over the weekend, she said, possibly because of the antiviral medication.

    She said her eye was much improved and that she was “feeling better,” though she still felt “queasy.”

    She said she was awaiting the results of a blood test for monkey-borne diseases and was grateful for advice she had been receiving from Dr. Lisa Jones-Engel, a primate scientist who works with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which has long opposed primate research and has asked two federal agencies to investigate the crash.”

  3. Move along, just grifters grifting……

    Nothing to see here….

    Just the fact that the FEC is a joke. Same scam as Rep. Omar.

    “Maxine Waters continues to pay daughter with campaign cash, adding up to $1.2M so far: FEC”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/maxine-waters-continues-pay-daughter-campaign-cash

    “House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters has continued to pay her daughter with campaign cash – and has already broken the seven-figure mark.

    Since 2003, Karen Waters has received over $1 million in payments from her mother to her and her company, Progressive Connections, for campaign-related services.

    Federal Elections Commission (FEC) data reviewed by Fox News Digital shows the payments range from the hundreds to the tens of thousands of dollars for a variety of costs, including “slate mailer management” fees, “campaign managing services,” and paying for a “band for [a] holiday event.”

    The payments add up, with the data showing that the congresswoman has paid her daughter and Progressive Connections over $1.2 million since 2003.

    Waters’ campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

    The recurring financial windfall funneling from Waters’ campaign to her daughter’s coffers is a staple feature of the congresswoman’s career in office.”

  4. Defund the police!

    Because we make you pay for our security.

    “‘Squad’ Dems spent over $325K on private security last year, despite defund police rhetoric

    Rep. Bush, who spent about $200K on private security in 2021, said defunding the police ‘has to happen'”

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/squad-dems-spent-over-300k-on-private-security-last-year-despite-defund-police-rhetoric

    “Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., and other members of the far-left “Squad” collectively spent over $325,000 on private security in 2021 despite promoting the “defund the police” movement during the George Floyd unrest of 2020, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reviewed by Fox News Digital.

    Bush’s campaign spent over $65,000 on private security during the fourth financial quarter and approximately $200,000 total in 2021 on private security firms like Peace Security and Whole Armor Executive Protection, eclipsing the totals for the other “Squad” members’ private security bills for 2021.

    The Missouri Democrat, who was sworn into office a little over a year ago, has been a staunch supporter of defunding the police and told CBS News last August that “defunding the police has to happen” and that the money needs to be put into “social safety nets because we’re trying to save lives.” When asked by CBS about the hypocrisy of spending tens of thousands of dollars on private security while calling for defending the police, Bush got defensive and replied, “You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die?””

  6. This could be interesting.

    If he’s unable to continue as a Senator, Republican Gov. Ducey would pick the replacement until the end of his term, or until a special election happens, which would take months. There’s goes your 50/50 tie in the Senate, and the Dem agenda.
