Anti-Biden tv ad running in Central Iowa TODAY!

It stated Biden has a 'secret' agenda that includes "packing the courts" and "defunding the police" with the "defunding the police" segment showing a recording of Biden that is, of course, taken out of context.

I was shocked it's playing two months after the election and was on either MSNBC or CBS Morning News at about 8 am.

The PAC promoting the ad started with "Ending..." but I didn't catch the whole name and could only find this on google:
1. Ending Spending, Inc.
610 S. Boulevard
Tampa, FL 33606
2. Treasurer Info
Treasurer Name: Nancy H. Watkins
4. FEC Committee ID #: C90014697

Does anyone know this PAC and if it is anti-Biden?

Tyson fires seven managers at Waterloo pork plant who were tied to coronavirus wagering investigatio


Tyson Foods said Wednesday it's firing seven employees at its Waterloo pork processing plant following an investigation into allegations that managers and supervisors made bets on the number of workers who would be sickened by the coronavirus.

Arkansas-based Tyson last month hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the gaming allegations after they were raised in wrongful death lawsuits filed by families of workers who died of COVID-19.

The managers' betting scheme occurred early in the pandemic as the coronavirus began tearing through the Waterloo plant, where about 1,000 of 2,800 workers tested positive for it in early May. . . .

Hundreds attend bus tour event supporting President Trump

A few hundred people gathered in south Des Moines Sunday to express their support for outgoing President Donald Trump as part of a national bus tour that started in Florida last month.

"We decided to do a bus tour for all the people that could not go and drop everything in their lives and to make sure that they are felt recognized and that their voice is still being heard," Kylie Jane Kremer, executive director of the pro-Trump Women for America First, told the Des Moines Register. The tour was expected to stop in Minnesota on Sunday night.

Democrat Joe Biden beat Trump, a Republican, in November's election, according to the Associated Press and other media calculations of state results. Biden will secure 306 Electoral College votes to Trump's 232 projected Electoral College votes.

On Sunday in Des Moines speakers claimed Trump won the election. At times, the crowd chanted, “Stop the steal." At other points, the crowd chanted, "Four more years."

Prominent Republican donor and Trump adviser Mike Lindell spoke at the Des Moines event. Lindell, who founded Minnesota-based MyPillow, claimed Democrats "stole 365,000 votes" in Minnesota.

Biden won Minnesota by 7 percentage points, according to certified results. Last week, the Minnesota Supreme Court rejected a Republican challenge to the results.

The bus tour will finish in Washington two days before Biden's victory is certified by the Electoral College on Dec. 14.

Results from the Electoral College's vote will be received, and typically approved, by Congress on Jan. 6, according to the AP. Kremer said it was important for the bus tour to finish in Washington just before the Electoral College meets.

"We decided we needed to go to (Washington) D.C. not just to show up and amass support," Kremer said, "but also to go and show the president that we're out there fighting for him and that we support him."



I didn't know these were happening.

Iowa certifies the election and Mariannette Miller-Meek (R) wins IA-02 by 6 votes!

This is a heartbreaker for Rita Hart and a loss of retiring Democratic Dave Loebsack's seat.

"Under Iowa law, this recount process was designed to count ballots that had already been tallied, meaning that additional legal ballots may have yet to be counted," campaign manager Zach Meunier said in the statement. "Over the next few days, we will outline our next steps in this process to ensure that all Iowans’ voices are heard."

Hart's campaign must take legal action within two days of Monday's certification. If it does, Iowa Code calls for the formation of a contest court, including Iowa Chief Justice Susan Christensen and four appointed district court judges selected by the Iowa Supreme Court. That group would rule on which candidate would fill the seat by Dec. 8.

How state political parties helped big money pay for this year's elections

Interesting and brief read on how state parties engage in legal money laundering of campaign funds.

WASHINGTON — State parties played an unprecedented role in financing the presidential election this year, making it possible for the national political parties to raise eye-popping sums from individual donors — and keep more money than they might otherwise be allowed.

That’s all thanks to a 2014 Supreme Court decision that eliminated the overall limit on how much money an individual can donate over a two-year period to national political parties, federal candidates and state parties’ federal accounts combined. The limit had been in place since the Watergate era.

There’s nothing illegal about what happened, but a States Newsroom analysis of federal data shows how nearly every state Republican and Democratic party helped pump more big money into this year’s elections. The system also benefited swing states like Florida, North Carolina and Georgia more than states where races weren’t as close, like Maryland or Tennessee. . . .


New favorite quote from Elie Wiesel - "Always take sides". . .


"Always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
Silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented."

Stumbled across MOMXD on cable but I can't find

anything about it. It appears to have movies without ads.

Anyone else have this channel?

MSNBC special on Obama on now.

Tyson hires former AG Eric Holder to investigate claims of betting on worker infections

Tyson Foods’ CEO announced Thursday he has hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to lead an “independent investigation” into a lawsuit’s claims that managers in the company’s Waterloo plant placed bets on the number of workers who would contract COVID-19.

The claims of a betting pool at the food giant’s Waterloo plant, first reported by Iowa Capital Dispatch, are just one set of allegations Tyson is facing in lawsuits across the country.

In Iowa alone, at least three coronavirus-related cases, involving a total of five plaintiffs, are pending in state and federal court. Other COVID-19 lawsuits, filed on behalf of dozens of workers, are pending in Texas courts. . . .

More than 1,000 Tyson employees at the Waterloo plant — a third of the facility’s workforce — have contracted the virus since the beginning of the pandemic and at least five of the workers have died.

Nationally, at least 4,600 Tyson employees in 15 states have been infected with COVID-19, and at least 18 have died. According to the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting, there have been at least 42,000 infections tied to meatpacking facilities in at least 470 plants in 40 states, and at least 215 deaths are associated with 51 plants in 27 states.

In Iowa alone, at least 3,835 infections and nine deaths are tied to meatpacking plants. . . .

In Texas, at least three lawsuits have been filed against Tyson — one by a group of 12 employees at the company’s plaint in Center, Texas, one by 41 employees of Tyson’s Amarillo plant, and one by the family of a deceased Tyson employee. . . .
