“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election. He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol,” Biden said. “But they failed. They failed. And on this day of remembrance, we must make sure that such an attack never, never happens again.”

"For more than two years, members of the Trump family and the Trump Organization have continually sought to delay and impede our investigation into Donald Trump and the Trump Organization, but despite their names, they must play by the same rules as everyone else. These delay tactics will not stop us from following the facts or the law, which is why we will be asking the court to compel Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump to testify with our office under oath."

This is going to be fun!

Stephen Smith is a warrior for clean energy. TVA wants to stamp him out and the competition he sees as a viable energy future.

"To me, it is devastating and makes no sense that TVA and the incumbent utility entities are opposing this sustainability cooperative which plans to come in and provide clean, renewable energy, storage and a microgrid that actually supports lowering the energy costs for industry in the Jackson area," said Stephen Smith, executive director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.

Smith said the type of microgrid and solar array proposed by the Jackson Sustainability Cooperative represents a significant part of the future of America's power generation as electricity moves away from central source generation from major coal or nuclear power plants and more to a distributed model with smaller renewable energy generation and storage."

N95 masks can be rotated every 3–4 days, heated for 60 min, steamed or boiled for 5 min, and then air-dried. These methods retain 92.4–98.5% filtering efficiency (FE).

Using soap and water or medical grade alcohol significantly decreases the FE of the masks (54% and 67%, respectively)

First this data that shows you are suicidal if you refuse to get vaccinated:

Latest CDC data by vaccine status:

Unvaccinated: 451 cases per 100k
Vaccinated: 134 cases per 100k
Boosted: 48 cases per 100k

Unvaccinated: 6.1 deaths per 100k
Vaccinated: 0.5 deaths per 100k
Boosted: 0.1 deaths per 100k

You know who is vaccinated and boosted? Trump

"A... congressional investigation, with much less notice, has been pursuing another profound betrayal committed by Donald Trump and his crew: the lethal mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis. That inquiry broke into the headlines a few days ago with the news of more evidence that the Trump White House impeded the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s efforts to warn Americans about the pandemic."

Congressional Republicans have abandoned all appearances of honor. They openly support the attempt to overthrow the elected government of the United Sates of America and murder Vice President Mike Pence in the process. Pence's brother appears to be the biggest coward of all.

"Two hundred and two Republicans wanted (Steve) Bannon, who is closely associated with the January 6 insurrection, to be able to ignore a congressional subpoena without any consequences for that defiance. The only representative who did not vote was Greg Pence (R-IN), brother of former vice president Mike Pence, whom the rioters threatened to hang."
