Almost Christmas, So Motes Anyway

A real entrepreneur: “90 Day Fiancé” star Stephanie Matto went viral when she revealed she sells her farts in a jar. Her $$ claims seem a bit much to me, upwards of $25k a month. But just in case, anybody want Mexican tonight?

If Trump was a dictator, he wasn’t very good at it: Sergey Tikhanovsky, the husband of Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, has been sentenced to 18 years in prison at ahigh-security penal colony, Belarusian state media BelTA reported on Tuesday. After a trial that took place largely behind closed doors, Tikhanovsky was convicted on charges including “organizing mass riots” and inciting social hostility, which critics say were politically motivated. Tikhanovsky, was arrested shortly after he declared his candidacy for president in May 2020.   His wife stood in his place but went on to lose the campaign and many international observers claimed the vote had been marred by widespread ballot stuffing and falsifications. According to the official results, her opponent won the election with 80.23% of the vote. She and her children have been living in exile there ever since. Maybe she should talk to Hunter, he has some connections in that area of the world, doesn’t he?

A happy ending: The remaining 12 hostages kidnapped by an armed gang in Haiti two months ago were released Thursday, according to the country’s justice minister. Seventeen missionaries representing Christian Aid Ministries, including 16 Americans and one Canadian, were kidnapped by armed men on October 16 while driving through the suburb of Croix des Bouquets, just outside of the capital city Port-au-Prince. The group had been returning from visiting an orphanage. The gang that authorities said was responsible for the kidnappings, 400 Mawozo, initially demanded a ransom of $1 million per hostage, but the circumstances surrounding the release were not immediately clear, including whether any ransom money was paid. Every now and then, things turn out right. Well, it would be better had the 3 rules been followed. 1) Identify  2) Locate  3) Punish harshly.   

Never let a crisis go to waste: First lady Jill Biden visited children severely wounded from the Christmas parade massacre in Waukesha, Wisconsin, using the occasion to remind parents to vaccinate their children for coronavirus.  Biden visited with an 11-year-old girl who was still being  treated at the hospital with a traumatic brain injury. She also visited with a 10-year-old girl who was suffering broken bones and a broken pelvis as well as a brain injury, but her public remarks focused only on vaccinations. No, they have no shame.

We are not “all in this together”. Politicians and state and local officials have not given up a single paycheck. They have not lost their businesses or homes. The have not laid awake all night wondering how they will feed their families or pay their bills. As they continue to enforce some of their draconian restrictions, not one of them is suffering from their own decisions. They are not now, and never will be any part of the WE in this.

LAW; the offense of willfully telling an untruth in a court after having taken an oath or affirmation. The United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack admitted Wednesday that it had doctored a text message cited by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) in his push Monday to hold former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in contempt. Schiff had manipulated the text message, cutting out the full context and adding punctuation into it, which he falsely implied was authored by a Republican lawmaker. But there will be no punishment because, you know, Trruuummmppp. Oh, he hadn’t “taken an oath or affirmation”? Does that mean the “Committee” members don’t have to tell the truth in these proceedings? Am I the only one that see’s a problem here?
