US Politics XXXIII: Get Inoculated!
 
As you were

WASHINGTON — The Transportation Department’s inspector general asked the Justice Department in December to consider a criminal investigation into what it said was Elaine Chao’s misuse of her office as Transportation secretary in the Trump administration to help promote her family’s shipbuilding business, which is run by her sister and has extensive business ties with China.

In a report made public Wednesday, the inspector general said the Justice Department’s criminal and public integrity divisions, in the closing days of the Trump administration, both declined to take up the matter, even after the inspector general found repeated examples of Chao using her staff and her office to help benefit her family and their business operations and revealed that staff members at the agency had raised ethics concerns.

“A formal investigation into potential misuses of position was warranted,” Mitch Behm, the department’s deputy inspector general, said Tuesday in a letter to House lawmakers, accompanying a 44-page report detailing the investigation and the findings of wrongdoing.
Chao, wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Senate Republican leader, announced her resignation Jan. 7, the day after the Capitol riot. At the time of her departure, an aide to Chao said her resignation was unrelated to the forthcoming release of the investigation.

The investigation of Chao came after a 2019 report in The New York Times that detailed Chao’s interactions with her family while serving as Transportation secretary, including a trip she had planned to take to China in 2017 with her father and sister. The inspector general’s report confirmed that planning for the trip, which was canceled, raised ethics concerns among other government officials.

Chao declined to respond to questions from the inspector general and instead provided a memo that detailed the importance of promoting her family as part of her official duties.

The inspector general’s investigation detailed a series of instances in which Chao directed her staff to spend federal government time and resources to help with matters related to the shipbuilding company and her father.

So that’s what Trump had on McConnell.

Feel like this is going to happen more often, and not just in DC. These groups will show they have some power to shut down government for a day or more depending on how severe the threat or even the action taken.

Anderson Cooper had two Q "experts" on last night. They said that Q believes Joe Biden is not really Joe Biden. That's why he wears a mask. They believe at some point basically he will rip his face off and it will be Trump.

:lol:

There was all kinds of other wacky crap.

Now that would be kind of cool to see.

These people really think about freedom literally. Free from consequences, laws, etc

Of course their idol has proven that to be true for himself. For now

The “shaman” was on the news today giving an interview. Why are we putting these guys on tv ? Would we interview ISIS if they stormed the capital ?

Yeah Anderson Cooper shouldn’t be giving this a platform.

It's all out there regardless of who gives it a platform. Shine a light on the darkness. He did one special on it and a segment on his show last night. That's what I have seen, of course I don't watch every show.

My guess is that people who are most vulnerable to QAnon are watching Fox News or OAN, places that are already aligned with Q views.

It’s like we will never learn. Talking about it is giving it free press and lending it legitimacy. That’s how Donald Trump became president. Ignore it, it’s only as real as you let it be.

Maybe ignoring it also contributed to the attack on the Capitol. If they just ignored that militia group threat today (can't remember their stupid name) it could have happened again. Q becomes real when members commit acts of terror.

Some Q members are seeing reality and leaving when these predictions don't happen.

Absolutely not. The government has a responsibility for acting upon threats. This is the job of the intelligence community and local law enforcement.

There’s a difference between a responsible party taking action and someone sensationally allowing a platform. Things like the “proud boys“ were not household names until people like Donald Trump gave them a platform. I guarantee you their involvement and virtual enrollment shot up dramatically in the last six months.

Treat fringe groups like they’re fringes and they’ll be fringes. If the news covered the fascist party of america daily it would get support. Don’t.

Headache in a Suitcase 03-04-2021 02:04 PM

I don't doubt that the threat was real - but the Capitol has been like a fortress since January 7. Nobody's getting close to that building.

I saw some media reporting today about how the Capitol is "blocked off again." It's been blocked for almost two months now non stop. It isn't something that just came back for today.

Moonlit_Angel 03-04-2021 03:13 PM

Here's what I find funny about the whole "Trump will be inaugurated on March 4th" thing. If we go by their "logic", then Trump's presidency wasn't legitimate, either, because he wasn't inaugurated on March 4th of 2017.He was inaugurated in January, just like every other president since the date was moved to that month.

I wonder if anyone's pointed that little wrinkle out to them. Not that it would make a difference, mind, but it would be interesting to see how they would try and spin that.

We live in the stupidest of timelines

BEAL 03-04-2021 04:43 PM

Close to 70% of the country supports HR1

ZERO House Republicans voted for it.

Yet this same voter base is OK with obstruction because their team isn’t in charge.

Do they think these things will get done if roles were reversed ?

This isn’t even a system. It doesn’t make sense but this is where we sit as a country and/or government
