Anthropology of the pandemic? Anyone spend time at relatives/friends?

Unanticipated consequences of the pandemic and isolation?

Think maybe people, in their own family isolation have zeroed into a routine that fits them to a tee. But not necessarily others?

Try visiting other families for a weekend? It seems so foreign and perhaps so hard to feel good in their routine ??? Effect of Covid?

AP: Records show pressure by Trump, allies on Arizona officials


PHOENIX (AP) — Newly released records show the top Republicans in Arizona's largest county dodged calls from Donald Trump and his allies in the aftermath of the 2020 election, as the then-president sought to prevent the certification of Joe Biden's victory in key battleground states.

The records — including voicemails and text messages — shed light on another state where Trump, his attorneys and others mounted a behind-the-scenes pressure campaign on Republican officials overseeing elections. Days before Congress certified Biden's win on Jan. 6, Trump pressed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to find enough votes to overturn Biden's win there.

Trump tried to reach Clint Hickman, then the chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, on Jan. 3, shortly before midnight in Washington and hours after news broke of Trump's call with Raffensperger.

“Hello, sir. This is the White House operator I was calling to let you know that the president’s available to take your call if you’re free,” the White House operator said in a voicemail. “If you could please give us a call back, sir, that’d be great. You have a good evening.”

“If you get a chance, would you please give me a call,” Giuliani said in a message to Gates. “I have a few things I’d like to talk over with you. Maybe we can get this thing fixed up. You know, I really think it’s a shame that Republicans sort of are both in this kind of situation. And I think there may be a nice way to resolve this for everybody.”

Ha, at least on 1/15/21 TFG knew he was terminated

Following President Trump’s exit from public office, the Office of Government Ethics released his final public financial disclosures, known as a termination report, covering 2020 and the first weeks of 2021.

Among the Trump-branded properties he visited most during his presidency, Trump made $24 million from Mar-a-Lago, about $15 million from Bedminster, more than $44 million from Doral and $15 million from his DC hotel.

According to the disclosure, he was unable to assign a value to the legal services provided by Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, which he has not paid for.

Mother Jones scoop - Ivanka gave false testimony re: inauguration



The Trump family has trouble with depositions. In 2007 testimony, Donald Trump was repeatedly shown to be a liar. In February, Donald Trump Jr. was deposed in the Trump inauguration scandal lawsuit, and on several key points, under oath, he provided false testimony. A review of documents filed in that case and other material obtained by Mother Jones shows that Ivanka Trump also testified inaccurately during her deposition in this lawsuit.

The inauguration probe was launched last year by Karl Racine, the attorney general of Washington, DC. He has alleged that Trump’s inauguration committee misused charitable funds to enrich the Trump family. As Racine put it, the lawsuit maintains “that the Inaugural Committee, a nonprofit corporation, coordinated with the Trump family to grossly overpay for event space in the Trump International Hotel… The Committee also improperly used non-profit funds to throw a private party [at the Trump Hotel] for the Trump family costing several hundred thousand dollars.” In short, the attorney general accused the Trump gang of major grifting, and he is seeking to recover the money paid to the Trump Hotel so those funds can be used for real charitable purposes.

Browsing through it all here.. All the great Dems here.. with

so much hope and so much energy...

Hate to say this out loud... But we still seem leaderless?( Of course we love Kamala and Joe, of course!)

But I feel no compelling force that is rounding up our energy. Perhaps, as someone will for sure say... "It's up to us." . Perhaps it's a matter of waiting until covid is reigned in?

Oops... Delta. Heard today that if you are from Hong Kong and you spend more than 2 hrs in England you can't come back .

Perhaps someone will say " you expect too much". "They've only been in 5 mos."
