Trump Call Actually Reveals A President Deep Into Detail, With Establishment Republicans Dismissive, Unwilling, And Rejecting Transparency
raheem Kassam, Jan 3, 2021

Despite the partisan framing from the Washington Post – that the call somehow reflected Trump making demands for votes from his Republican colleagues – the President actually does no such thing. Throughout the call, the President makes clear that his calls are for election transparency, full and transparent audits, and public access. At no point does the President imply he wants votes invented or confected, as the establishment media is portraying. He even offers to recuse himself from parts of the conversation and ends by asking for “the truth… it’s just that simple.”

Incoming GOP Lawmaker Appears To Score Win On Right To Carry Gun In Capitol

Incoming Rep. Lauren Boebert, an anti-big government Republican from Colorado who will take office in days, wants to carry a concealed weapon in the Capitol for her own protection.

On Friday, she wrote a letter to House leadership, urging them to keep intact a 1967 rule that exempts lawmakers from a ban on carrying firearms inside the Capitol building.

“I refuse to give up my Second Amendment rights,” Boebert said in a statement. “I’m a 5-foot tall, 100-pound mom with four children and will be walking to work and serving in one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. I choose to defend my family and my life with all of the force the Constitution provides. I will not let a bunch of gun-grabbing House Democrats take away my Constitutional right to protect myself.”

Is it too soon to laugh at 2020? We present to you... our camera crew's bloopers from this year.

I include the following despite reservations. The 1993 Lois and Clark series was well-done and a lot of fun. I don't have any good expectations for anything done nowadays. Expect Lois to be stronger than Superman, etc.
