The shame of it all!
U.S. Marine Major Christopher Warnagires has been arrested for participating in January 6 insurrection. He is the first military duty member so arrested.
The charge: He “violently entered the Capitol on January 6, after pushing through a line of police officers guarding the East Rotunda doors” and then used his body to keep a door open so others could enter. Videos show him pushing away a Metropolitan Capitol police officer who tried to close the door.
Get them all! Even Congresspersons who participated in some fashion. Clean house!
Ransom dollars have returned as an illicit way to make money.
My recollection is a number of years ago, cruise ships and other vessels were stopped by “prates” on the high seas who demanded ransom dollars.
The game is back. This time via cyber warfare.
A few days ago, the Colonial Pipeline was hacked. A Russian group/company has been determined to be the villains. Five million dollars demanded to resolve Colonial Pipeline’s problem.
Yesterday confidential documents from the Washington D.C. Police Department. A Russian speaking “ransomware syndicate” known as the Bakeek Group responsible. The Group has demanded $4 million to avoid the hacking.
This problem involving cyber activity is not new. It first reared its ugly head a few years ago. The major companies now placed in cyber danger would rater pay the ransoms. Cheaper for them in the long run. Insurance companies now provide coverage to pay the ransoms.
Authorities on the other hand want the companies not to pay as it will encourage further such activity.
A new ball game! The opposition/good guys have to hurry to get their act together so this new vermin can be eliminated. No easy task.
Historian Jon Meachem has a new podcast show: “Fate of Fact.” Some recent comments by him.
“The GOP has dissolved into a contrary, conspiracy and falsehoods.”
“We have not seen the last to a changing demographic and country.”
“There was a lot of gasoline on the garage floor of the Republican Party, and Trump was a match.”
“We came as close to losing the country as we know it on January 6 as we have since the Civil War.”
Moving to Liz Cheney. The Republican Party will lament throwing Liz Cheney overboard. She will be a guaranteed thorn in eh Republican Party’s side. She will not go quietly into the night.
She will so be till the Republicans Party corrects itself or a new party is formed.
Oxitec back! In full fighting form. Even Bill and Melinda Gates have invested money in the company. To the tune of $4.1 million.
They are testing in the Keys again. New sites. Boxes with genetically modified mosquitoes have been set in 6 places. Three on Cudjo, 1 on Ramrod and 3 in Marathon.
The program is to release 12,000 so modified mosquitoes each week for 12 weeks. Twelve thousand each week.
Once again the Keys are sought to be a guinea pig. Someone should publicize Oxitec ‘s failures in Africa and Brazil.
A local group has commenced a lawsuit. This first one merely to collect Oxitec papers.
I have an appointment for a haircut later this morning. Going to feel strange. I assume I will be among people not wearing masks. I am going to continue wearing mine for a while. After more than a year wearing one, I would feel naked without. Also fearful that the no mask edict may have come too soon.
Enjoy your day!
