We have a two party election system same as those countries in the Mid-East where the people are screaming and firing guns in the streets.  It is liken Athens when under the attack of the military of Rome.  We have depleted our treasury and turn our once robust economy into a debtor prison where there is no escape. We have allowed the exporting of our technology increasing foreign jobs.  We are buying their products and cannot or will not pay for the imbalance of trade.  But there is good news as we are going to increase our debt ceiling causing more inflation. 

But there is more good news as with the unemployment and inflation increasing that will build a new set of RR tracks through the front door of the white house for another third term president.

WASHINGTON — A newly elected Republican member of the House known for conspiratorial social media posts spread a false theory that PG&E started the devastating Camp Fire in 2018 with space lasers in a clean-energy experiment gone awry, according to a new report.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has since deleted the Facebook post in which she made the suggestion, according to Media Matters for America, a left-leaning research outlet. But the group released a screen grab of the November 2018 post in which Greene detailed a long, meandering conspiracy theory involving Pacific Gas and Electric Co., former Gov. Jerry Brown, Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, space-based solar generators and unnamed people who claimed to have seen “what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.”

“The idea is clean energy to replace coal and oil,” Greene wrote. “If they are beaming the suns energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter receiving station right??!!”

The post includes references to the Rothschild Inc. investment firm, a frequent subject of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories that are monitored by the Anti-Defamation League. It also falsely alleges the fire that ripped through Butte County was along the path of the state’s planned high-speed rail line, which in reality is hundreds of miles to the south.

    In another recently discovered FB post, Marjorie Taylor Greene penned a conspiracy theory claiming that a space laser started the deadly 2018 Camp Fire in California. https://t.co/erp7UhN1AL pic.twitter.com/3TEFcSyVZb

Greene’s post came as the Camp Fire was in the process of being contained but had already ravaged the town of Paradise and nearby communities. The blaze was the deadliest in the state’s history, killing 85 people and destroying nearly 20,000 structures.

The fire was actually sparked by PG&E electrical equipment, and the company later pleaded guilty to 85 felony charges, including 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter. PG&E, which filed for bankruptcy protection a few months after the blaze, agreed to a $13.5 billion settlement with victims of the fire.

Greene’s office did not respond to a request for comment Thursday. Neither did Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Richvale (Butte County), whose district includes the areas devastated by the Camp Fire, nor House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield, who worked to keep disaster relief for California from being cut off by former President Donald Trump and who has faced questions about Greene’s place in the House.

Greene has been under scrutiny over her social media presence, including posts trafficking in conspiracy theories related to QAnon and questioning school shootings. In recent days, social media sleuths have uncovered a video of her harassing a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, and CNN reported she had indicated support for executing Democratic members of Congress.

Former Republican officials in talks to form center-right anti-Trump party
https://thehill.com/homenews/news/538362-former-republicans-in-talks-to-form-center-right-anti-trump-party


A group of more than 100 former Republican officials have discussed the possibility of forming a conservative party due to their unhappiness with the direction of the GOP under former President Donald Trump and the likelihood he'll be acquitted at the end of his second impeachment trial, according to Republicans who participated in the conversation.
Former Republican House Rep. Charlie Dent confirmed to CNN that he and about 120 Republicans held a conversation last Friday about whether to form a new party or a new faction within the Republican Party that would operate independently from the GOP.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/11/politics/republican-officials-discuss-forming-party/index.html


Tulsa's Republican Party Chairman Bob Jack has no place in the Tulsa city government.
From leading a Stop the Steal rally at LaFortune Park to being the leader of pressure to remove of the Black Lives Matter street mural in the Greenwood District, he shows how dangerous it would be if he were placed on a city commission.
It is a sickness in our society to continue believing the presidential election was stolen and that people of color, a growing majority, are taking away rights.
Jack needs to move on and remove himself as a contender for the Infrastructure Development Advisory Board.
Better yet, resign as chairman of the Tulsa Republican Party.

That is the essential effort of the day, isn't it?   Jamie Raskin has done an exceptional, Quixotic job of trying to turn cowards - Trump sychophants - into at least minimally decent, honorable human beings for at least once in their lives.   

I have no hope that it will happen, especially with the examples already shown by the entire Oklahoma House delegation, plus the previous records of Inhofe and Lankford.
