Here's a bit cool news:

Kamala Harris was escorted to the ceremony by the Capitol Police officer who led rioters away from Senate

(CNN) - Eugene Goodman has been hailed as a hero ever since he lured rioters away from the Senate chambers during the January 6 insurrection on Capitol Hill.

The Capitol Police officer's courageous actions were recognized again on Wednesday when he escorted Kamala Harris to the inauguration ceremony. He was there in his new role as acting deputy Senate sergeant at arms.

and, Biden got more done today than Trump did in 6 months!


Well, I am delighted to see him more or less canceling any of Trumps executive orders. I do hope he doesn't decide to rule by way of his own executive orders. We don't have a legislative branch for nothing.

Biden is acting fast, taking names and kicking butt:

Biden fires Trump-appointed labor board general counsel who refused to resign

By

Jan. 20, 2021 at 10:26 p.m. CST

A standoff between the Biden administration and the National Labor Relations Board’s general counsel ended Wednesday evening in the top lawyer’s firing, according to a White House official.

The fracas over now-former general counsel Peter Robb’s tenure unfolded just hours into Joe Biden’s presidency. It began earlier Wednesday, when the Biden administration asked Robb to resign, the White House official said, a precedent-breaking move first reported by Bloomberg Law.

But Robb, a Trump appointee with 10 months left in his Senate-confirmed role, refused. In a letter to the White House, he called the request “unprecedented since the nascence of the National Labor Relations Act” and said his removal “would set an unfortunate precedent,” according to Law360.

Biden reportedly told Robb he should step down by 5 p.m. or he would be fired. By 8:45 p.m., the general counsel position on the NLRB’s online organizational chart was listed as “vacant.”

A "....return to ‘normal.’" can only begin when you get back to 'normal' first! And, the first day is the best time to start.

That'll be grounds for impeachment once the Republicans retake the House.

I'd argue that it would be naive to make a case that most supporters of Biden happen to be progressives like AOC and her ilk.

I think that it's likely that most of the name-callers on a2k are progressive extremists.

But ultimately it doesn't matter to my point. If someone has nothing but name-calling to offer, they are better if they say nothing at all, and that applies no matter where on the political spectrum they lie.

Listening to pundits dissecting “what it means” that 45 left a supposedly genial letter for President Biden on the resolute desk.

It’s one of the most galling tendencies of press coverage during the time of 45 - a tendency that has contributed to the lowering of our societal ‘bars’ that measure ethics and human decency.

That tendency is to fawn over any minuscule crumb of common courtesy or basic competence that 45 showed. Instead of meeting him with openly expressed horror right from the start when he came down his gaudy escalator and every time he opened his lying mouth. Instead of that, we just kept lowering our standard for what is acceptable behavior.

So that when he read a teleprompter speech verbatim without mispronounced words, the reporters marveled. And if he paused his child-caging, inmate executing ways to free one black person, the pundits said this heralds the long promised “pivot” to being “presidential”.

It’s pitiful. It’s hurtful. They need to do better.

Progressive tolerance for people they disagree with is always such a wonder. Rolling Eyes

I don’t know if anybody has been following what Trump’s boss has been up to. According to a video released by poisoned opposition leader Navalny, Putin has used the biggest bribe in History to build himself a presidential palace 39X the size of Monaco with its own casino, vineyard and underground ice hockey rink. The video has had over 200m views in its first day.

Google Putin presidential palace.

@izzythepush,
There's nothing wrong with a guy having a nice house. The important thing is that Mr. Putin is helping the American people to resist the illegitimate Biden Administration.

@BillW,
The state apparatus is moving quickly to claim it’s not Putin’s palace. It reminds me of the episode of The Simpsons where the legal owner of the power plant was a canary called C Montgomery Bird.

I know, that’s how the filthy rich live.

I wonder if Trump has any bottles fromPutin’s vineyard. He must give them to all his loyal servants.

Putin's Palace -you may call it "nice house" - is an Italianate palace complex, the most recent of the 20 palaces nice houses in total.

Do you want to delete the FBI as well? I mean, one of the most important duties of the FBI is to Combat Foreign Influence.

The FBI has plenty of important duties. Helping the Biden Administration oppress the American people shouldn't be one of them.

Fake talk (typical of a Biden).

Progressives have nothing but disrespect to give. Progressives certainly can't defend their demented ideology using facts or logic.

Progressives engage in childish name-calling because they lack the intelligence to defend their demented ideology using facts or logic.

During the last four years flight paths in and out of Palm Beach international were steered away for security reasons.

That privilege ended on Wednesday with Biden as president, and among the first planes to disrupt a newly retired Palm Beacher's peace and quiet in his resort's home was, perhaps fittingly, the empty Air Force One on its way back to Washington.
