"Pudding Gate"

As reported by the daily beast and MSNBC

“The chatter over DeSantis’ public engagement has also surfaced past unflattering stories about his social skills—particularly, his propensity to devour food during meetings.

“He would sit in meetings and eat in front of people,” a former DeSantis staffer told The Daily Beast, “always like a starving animal who has never eaten before… getting shit everywhere.”

Enshrined in DeSantis lore is an episode from four years ago: During a private plane trip from Tallahassee to Washington, D.C., in March of 2019, DeSantis enjoyed a chocolate pudding dessert—by eating it with three of his fingers, according to two sources familiar with the incident.

A representative for DeSantis’ political team did not return a request for comment on it.”


"DeSantis attempts to revoke Miami hotel's liquor license over drag show"

DeSantis attempts to revoke Miami hotel's liquor license over drag show

“The administration of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is seeking to revoke the liquor license of a Miami hotel for holding a Christmas-themed drag show in the presence of children.

“A Drag Queen Christmas” was held Dec. 27 at the Hyatt Regency Miami hotel as a part of a larger holiday-themed drag show tour. The tour featured several stars from Emmy-winning competition show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and took place across 36 U.S. cities. Minors were permitted if they were accompanied by an adult.

In a 17-page complaint filed Tuesday with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, which the department shared with NBC News, the DeSantis administration argued that the hotel violated Florida statutes on lewdness by hosting the show.

The complaint cites a 1947 state Supreme Court case that found “men impersonating women” constitutes a public nuisance. It also argues that the hotel exposed children to “simulated sexual activity, and lewd, vulgar, and indecent displays.”…more at link

And Here It Comes..."So maybe we will be welcoming a resurgence of the Age of Aquarius"

There was a really good astrologer online by name of Sally McDonald, who before she died of cancer, laid out, via astrology what the last 10 years would be like and boy was she right. But she also said it was a necassary beginning to a better world and come 24/25 we would be seeing and feeling real hope for our country. And today Marjorie Orr posted this.

“An Astro-teaser to distract from the Pluto in Aquarius panics. By 2025 Pluto in Aquarius will trine Uranus in Gemini and sextile onto Saturn Neptune in Aries.

It’s a wonderfully complex mix with the closest recent parallel being the early 1950s when Saturn Neptune in Libra was sextile Pluto and square Uranus. But it will have a more powerful impact since the outer planets this time round are all on the cusp of a new sign.

At best Saturn Neptune looks after the underdog and supports workers and women’s rights; at worst it accompanies epidemics and engenders paranoia. Renowned astrologer Andre Barbault waxed lyrical about Saturn Neptune in 2025 envisaging a ‘new world civilization’ taking off with a ‘new age of humanity’ – ‘a significant rise in the standard of living of the underprivileged, of a victory over misery won in an unprecedented solidarity.’ I’m not sure I share such an upbeat view but I do think by 2026 we will have weathered more than a few storms and (cross fingers) should be into calmer waters.

Uranus trine Pluto will favour the underdog as well with positive changes being forced on the elite through rumblings of discontent.

I always think of the early 1950s as having spawned the later hippy, counter-culture movement which rejected mainstream values. So maybe we will be welcoming a resurgence of the Age of Aquarius.”


Revisiting Marjorie Orr's Prediction For McCarthy

“McCarthy, 26 January 1965 12.40pm Bakersfield, California, is a Sun Aquarius heading for his Second Saturn Return in 2023. He does have an Earth Grand Trine of Jupiter trine Venus Mercury in Capricorn trine Uranus Pluto in Virgo, which should ground him in the real world, but it forms into a Kite with Neptune being the driving planet. So it all dissipates into a sea fog.

With tr Uranus wobbling his Jupiter Neptune seesaw through 2023 he’ll be on a dizzying circuit of highs and lows, mainly the latter. Plus his Solar Arc Neptune in a confused conjunction to his Mercury and a disappointing one to his Venus now. And by 2024 into 2025 it looks as if his goose is cooked with tr Neptune opposition his Mars, flagging up a dented ego and failure."


THe Pluto Calvary Is On The Way..."Pluto in Aquarius is the cosmic dawn of a new age"


Rachel Is Going On About Manafort Getting Yanukovych Elected But Neglects To Mention Devine

“Those who heard Devine’s interviews and watched his Sanders TV ads therefore may be surprised to know that, in the years and months leading up to the Sanders presidential campaign, Devine was making gobs of money to secure the election of one of the world’s most corrupt political figures and then his allies.

Thanks to Robert S. Mueller III’s prosecution of Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman and sometime business associate of Devine, we now have an unusual glimpse into the role the Democratic ad man had in electing and preserving the power of Ukraine’s Viktor Yanukovych, a crooked pro-Putin autocrat. Though American political consultants routinely rake in cash from foreign leaders — even shady ones — Devine’s seamless pivot from advocate for antidemocratic thug to champion of a principled democratic reformer shows extraordinary flexibility.”


"Dominion Voting attorney calls out Fox for missing evidence in defamation lawsuit"

Dominion Voting attorney calls out Fox for missing evidence in defamation lawsuit

Key Points
• Dominion Voting Systems said Fox News and its parent company still haven’t produced evidence, two months before the two are set to go to trial.

• A Fox attorney said he disagreed, pointing out Dominion has been late to produce documents itself.

• Dominion sued Fox for $1.6 billion, arguing the company and its networks made false claims that its voting machines rigged the 2020 election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Do You Know Who First Placed The Resolute Desk In The Oval Office?

“The Resolute desk was received at the White House on November 23, 1880, and shortly thereafter was moved to the second floor. It stayed in the President's Office and President's Study until the White House Reconstruction from 1948 to 1952. After the reconstruction, it was placed in the Broadcast Room where Dwight D. Eisenhower used it during both radio and television broadcasts. Jackie Kennedy rediscovered the desk and had it brought to the Oval Office in 1961. The desk was removed from the White House after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and went on a traveling exhibition with artifacts of the Kennedy Presidential Library. It was then put on display in the Smithsonian Institution.

President Jimmy Carter brought the desk back to the Oval Office in 1977, where it has remained since, save that George H. W. Bush used the C&O desk in the Oval Office but kept the Resolute desk in the White House.”
