⚖ TRUTH AND TRANSPARENCY


1️⃣  We are a battered nation haunted by sickness, death and division brought upon us by one man who lied to us for four years, came from a past of lies and we were stupid to think it would get better or they would change. 

2️⃣  We know now that our political parties have a structure.  Democrats favor Construction, Reptilians favor Obstruction, and Constitutional principles and righteousness will triumph over lies and insurrection with honesty and not the partisan politics by elected officials who lie every day. 

3️⃣  We have no one to blame for the denigrated Senate Gray Heads who do nothing but talk a big game, do not represent the people and are so brainwashed and corrupt, I fear the worst.  The simple truth, the politicians who are inept cheat and lie are elected by morons of the same qualities.  American voters who praises their actions is one of the lowest educated morons who ever voted.   

4️⃣  Our Government on the Reptilian side is totally corrupt, not doing their duty, failing their oath of office and corrupt, lying in Gods name, betraying their oath, and goose stepping to McConnell and Meadows.  

5️⃣  President Joe Biden will take on the catastrophe.  Adolf T-RUMP World has brought authoritarianism to the nation.  T-RUMPS  four-year assault on truth, tranquility, freedom, using lies, corruption and collusion deserve him no less than the death penalty as a traitor. 

6️⃣   T-RUMPS legacy will not make things easier, T-rumps legacy… the blood of a half a million plus people is on T-RUMPS  hands,  he gave no help, no compassion, no scientific learning, no effort to ease the pain of loosing a loved one, he was silent and in denial.  Hee lied about everything, he is a murderer.
 

7️⃣  This man T-RUMP is a psycho, unhinged, dangerous and expired, means nothing,  he is just in another place where extermination is warranted and needed as he continues to unhinge the halls of Democracy and Justice.   His lies, untruths, coercion, false illusions of grandeur, cheating,  stealing,  has been his  answer for the past four years and also add his past to that number. 

8️⃣  Specifically, another task for Joe Biden is get back the good people who suffered under T-RUMP — Restore the Attorneys General and those who worked on the various over-site committees, Reinstate those briefing and security codes for the Generals  —  They were a select group of the Generals who could not fathom T-RUMPS lies and stupidity and they are needed to make right decisions. You cannot throw that experience, candor and honesty in serving our country away from these hero’s.

9️⃣  Review the not so qualified or honest US attorneys appointed by a fake Senate and Fat-Lying-Bastard Sycophant William P. Barr; Who has misled the public on the Mueller report;  Refused to recuse himself from the Ukraine investigation;   Propagated a dangerous view of executive power; Acted like Trump’s personal lawyer.

1️⃣0️⃣   President Biden has decreed the following  —  No relatives shall be allowed to work in the White House.  President Biden also pledged that all Cabinet officials will sell or put stocks and other financial holdings in a blind trust.   Biden issued orders to tell the sycophant T-RUMP liars and scumbirds he dumped on agencies like the DOJ and FBI in the last day to be fired and pack their bags. 

1️⃣1️⃣  Review under Congress the hacks T-RUMP has put in other Federal Agencies and High Court positions.  Judges rated unqualified by the American Bar Association will be reviewed and if possible removed.  Those not presently qualified by normal civil terms removed. 


We have a new Staff In The White House…

CABINET STAFF MAP



Despite President Trump’s inability to accept his election loss, the Biden transition team forged ahead, announcing its picks for many Cabinet spots and other major positions over the past few weeks. 

Below is a running list of who will be joining the executive branch come January, assuming the nominees clear the Senate confirmation process.


CIA HEAD)  President-elect Joe Biden will nominate William Burns, president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a career diplomat for over 30 years, to serve as director of the CIA, the transition confirmed Monday. 

Why. it matters: If confirmed, Burns would be the first career diplomat to lead the agency. Burns served the State Department in a number of posts around the world from the Reagan to the Obama administrations.

  • "The choice of Burns will disappoint those who wanted a career intelligence officer to succeed Gina Haspel, the current director," writes the Washington Post's David Ignatius.
  • "What’s likely to have appealed to Biden, in addition to his personal comfort level with Burns, is his reputation as a nonpartisan figure who served in hard places — Russia and the Middle East — and over the years developed close relationships with the countries that are the CIA’s key liaison partners."

Background: Burns, who Ignatius writes "is widely viewed as the best Foreign Service officer of his generation," served in a number of State Department roles from 1982 until 2014, including an ambassadorship to Russia from 2005 to 2008. He was deputy secretary of state in the Obama administration. 

  • Burns was involved in secret backchannel talks with Iran that culminated in the 2015 nuclear deal, which Biden will attempt to revive after he takes office.
  • He also has experience dealing with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has grown more aggressive in his foreign policy over the last decade, and told Axios in November: "We’re going to be operating within a pretty narrow band of possibilities in dealing with Vladimir Putin’s Russia — from the sharply competitive to the pretty nastily adversarial."
