Trump uses last days to appoint anti-LGBTQ radical to 'key position'

On Tuesday, the White House released a list of people to be appointed by Donald Trump to "key posts" in the administration. Among them is Marcus Bachmann, who runs a Christian counseling clinic in Minnesota that carries out so-called conversion therapy, an unproven and widely rejected practice through which LGBTQ people are told that their orientation or gender is wrong and is something they can and should change.

The American Psychiatric Association has long opposed "conversion therapy" and says it is harmful to LGBTQ people and has "not been scientifically validated." In the United States, 20 states have bans on "conversion therapy" for minors.

Trump chose Bachmann to be a member of the President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities, an advisory body to the president and the Department of Health and Human Services originally instituted in 1961 by John F. Kennedy. Bachmann is the husband of Michele Bachmann, the far-right former member of Congress and 2012 presidential candidate.

News investigations over the past decade have revealed information about the therapists and "treatment" at Bachmann's clinic, which rebranded itself from Bachmann & Associates to Counseling Care in 2013. The therapists vocally disapprove of queer people and tell them they can learn to be straight if they try hard enough and pray on it.

Stmt from Rep. Bacon, when asked about these comments > "I stand by what I said. The President’s Secretary of Treasury helped negotiate this bill and encouraged us to support it. Furthermore, the President was updated on this bill every step of the way by GOP Leadership..."


GOP official: “The Trump tantrum has nothing to do with check size or spending—he was fully aware of the the negotiations carried out in his behalf by Meadows and Mnuchin and never said a peep. This is about McConnell and Thune acknowledging the inevitable...

Florida's Keyontae Johnson diagnosed with heart inflammation that has been associated with COVID-19

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida forward Keyontae Johnson, who collapsed on the court during a game Dec. 12 at Florida State, has been diagnosed with a heart inflammation that may be related to an earlier infection for COVID-19.

Following the collapse that left Johnson unresponsive, he was transferred last Monday from Tallahassee Memorial to UF Health in Gainesville, where an MRI on his heart led to a diagnosis of acute myocarditis, according to a person with first-hand knowledge. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Johnson, the SEC preseason player of the year, is expected to be out for a minimum of three months and likely will miss the rest of the 2020-21 season. His parents, Nika and Marrecus Johnson, announced Tuesday he was being released from the hospital and would spend Christmas with them as a family.


Dems say Sen. Toomey blowing up talks


Dems claiming Toomey blowing up talks

Dem aide: "An agreement was in sight to deliver aid to the American people until Sen. Toomey and Republicans inserted an 11th hour purely political, unrelated provision to tie Biden’s hands and risk throwing the economy into a tailspin ...


"The Toomey provision would be an unprecedented change to the law to strip the Fed chair of one of their most important tools to quickly respond to any future economic crisis."

This is about winding down Fed's emergency lending ... not a great sign right now

Gina McCarthy will be the first ever National Climate Advisor


President-elect Joe Biden has tapped Gina McCarthy, who ran the Environmental Protection Agency under President Barack Obama and now leads a major advocacy group, to coordinate the new administration’s domestic climate agenda from a senior perch at the White House.

McCarthy is president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, which has sued the Trump administration more than 100 times, successfully overturning its attempts to delay energy efficiency rules and protections for threatened species.

McCarthy, 66, who spearheaded the Obama administration’s efforts to curb greenhouse gases from power plants and vehicles, will be responsible for implementing Biden’s plan to weave climate policy throughout the federal government. Ali Zaidi, 33, New York’s deputy secretary for energy and environment, will be her deputy.
