Hurricane Ian will hit west Florida today and move across the state. Winds will be as fast as 155 MPH and it will rain for 48 hours. The entire state of Florida is under warning. 2 million are under evacuation orders. 12 foot storm surges could wash homes and cars away. Tampa could get a direct hit for the first time in 100 years.
All of Cuba is without power — 11 million people.
Due to Hurricane Ian, the Select Committee hearing has postponed today’s hearing.
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida who has been unofficially running for president while campaigning for re-election is pissed that he has to work during the middle of his fascist campaign. He is such a shit that he spun federal assistance for the hurricane, which is guaranteed and on its way, no strings attached, to make it sound like Biden is playing politics with a natural disaster. He said he may be getting the help from FEMA that he needs, but he hasn’t spoken to Biden. “You got people’s lives at stake, property at stake, and we don’t have time for pettiness. We got to work together. My phone line is open.” Another shitty sound bite for Fox. That guy is such as shit.
Speaking of shitty politicians in Florida, DeSantis appointee, Gadsden County Commissioner Jeffrey Moore, has resigned after photos of him wearing a KKK robe have surfaced. DeSantis put him in charge of running Florida’s predominately Black county.
Jeffrey Moore resigning is a reminder that Michael Ertel, former Republican Secretary of State in Florida, resigned too after briefly serving in 2019 after a photo of him dressed as a Black Katrina victim surfaced.
Ginni Thomas failed to report $700,000 of income 11 years ago.
Trump demoted his $3 million lawyer, Chris Kise. Now he has to sit in the dug out while the kooks play DOJ ball.
The FBI’s official count for empty classified folders found at Mar-a-Lago is 43.
Mark Meadows was supposed to testify for the grand jury in Fulton County yesterday but nobody knows for sure if he showed up. Reporters were camped out at all of the entrances and never saw him come or go. He was there when Trump called Brad Raffensperger and he showed up unannounced to a Georgia Bureau of Investigation led audit of absentee ballots but got kicked out. The audit found no evidence of fraud. Meadows was also in on MAGA Republican members of Congress trying to get the DOJ to investigate Georgia.
As jury selection begins for the one eyed mutineer, Stewart Rhodes, attorneys filed a motion asking that descriptors be left out such as “anti-government,” “militia,” “extremists,” “racist,” “white supremacist,” and “white nationalist” when referring to their client in court. How about “shit?” Can they call him a shit?
2 major gas pipelines have exploded in the Baltic Sea. The gas lines go from Russia to Germany. It looks like a deliberate attack. Russia is blaming the US and Ukraine.
Russia’s war in Ukraine has been going on for 7 months and it’s not going well for Putin. Ukraine is beating Russia. When it first started, troops didn’t know they were invading Ukraine. They were told that they were doing exercises. Word got back to families back home that it was a real war so Putin changed his story: Russia was under siege from the West and had no choice but to attack. The only people who didn’t believe him and were opposed to the war, left the country quietly. Then Putin’s story changed to they were ridding Ukraine of Nazis and since Russians don’t see anything but state run TV, why not believe it, but after 6 months public support waned, and people started questioning Putin. Now Russia is losing and people are fleeing the country to avoid a draft. Putin has drafted 300,000 ethnic minority men to fight without any training. He gave them 1 hour to pack and say goodbye to their families. He plans on drafting nearly 1 million more. They’re being told to bring their own armor, sleeping bags, tourniquets, and tampons to use for bullet wounds. Russian airlines were ordered to stop selling tickets to men 18–65. People are protesting in the streets and getting arrested and now Putin has taken cover. He’s hiding, all alone, making decisions on his own, just like Trump. He’s been ostracized all over the world. More and more Russian people are taking to the streets to protest the war, risking arrest and imprisonment. Once his top enablers turn on him, it’s all over.
How many top secret documents did Trump share with Putin? Is Putin in possession of any of the 43 documents that are missing? Shit.
