    Senate confirms Tom Vilsack to serve again as agriculture secretary


    The Senate confirmed Tom Vilsack as President Joe Biden's agriculture secretary, sending the former Iowa governor to the same Cabinet position he served for the entirety of the Obama administration.

    The vote was 92-7.

    Vilsack, 70, will now be tasked with helping farmers hard hit by former president Donald Trump's trade wars and the coronavirus pandemic, which has sickened thousands of workers at meatpacking plants and deepened the challenges of hunger and food insecurity.

    The USA is really going of the rails with Joe Biden.



    Biden’s HHS Pick Advocates Sex Changes For Kids.


    Transitions for Kids.

    Most alarmingly, Dr. Levine has advocated for sex changes for pre-pubertal people, otherwise known as “children.”
    A professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at the Penn State College of Medicine, Levine has given lectures in various settings since at least 2012 on how to perform sex changes and gender conversion therapy on children.
    According to Levine, children ought to be given the latitude to choose their own gender. Levine has advised adults to “try not to force them one way or other [sic]” and instead to follow the child’s lead.

    They want to do WHAT? Remember the tides will change!


    House Democrats Push Cable Companies, Streaming Platforms to Drop Conservative Networks

    Two House Democrats sent letters Monday to a dozen television broadcasters suggesting that they stop airing Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network, a move which a Republican commissioner on the FCC called a “chilling transgression” aimed at de-platforming the conservative networks.
    “Are you planning to continue carrying Fox News, OANN, and Newsmax on your platform both now and beyond the renewal date?” California Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney wrote in a letter to the companies.
    “If so, why?” they asked.

    The letters were sent to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet and Hulu.
    Eshoo and McNerney asked the companies what steps they took after the 2020 presidential election “to monitor, respond to, and reduce the spread of disinformation, including encouragement or incitement of violence by channels your company disseminates to millions of Americans?”

    The lawmakers blamed the three conservative outlets for spreading disinformation about voter fraud that led to the attack on the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.
    They asserted that the cable and streaming companies “have done nothing in response to the misinformation aired by these outlets.”

    Brendan Carr, a Trump-appointed commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission, called the letter a “chilling transgression” against the networks aimed at stifling editorial decisions and political speech.
    “I call on my FCC colleagues to join me in publicly denouncing this attempt to stifle political speech and independent news judgment,” Carr said in a statement on Twitter.
    “The Democrats are sending a message that is as clear as it is troubling — these regulated entities will pay a price if the targeted newsrooms do not conform to Democrats’ preferred political narratives.”

    Eshoo and McNerney sit on the House Committee on Energy & Commerce, which will hold a hearing on Wednesday entitled “Fanning the Flames: Disinformation and Extremism in the Media.”
    “Some broadcasters’ and cable networks’ increasing reliance on conspiracy theories and misleading or patently false information raises questions about their devotion to journalistic integrity,” Democrats on the committee wrote of the hearing.
    "We look forward to hearing from media experts about what is being done and what more can be done to address this growing problem moving forward.”
    Momentum has been building since the election to deplatform various conservative media companies and conservative personalities. The most prominent example is Twitter and Facebook’s banning of President Donald Trump following the Capitol riots.

    Three other Big Tech firms, Apple, Google and Amazon, all cut access after the riots to Parler, the social media platform popular with conservatives.
    The companies alleged that conservatives had used Parler to spread election-related disinformation and to organize the assault on the Capitol, though Facebook was mentioned far more often in charging documents against rioters who have been arrested so far.

    Please be honest!!
    The letters did NOT tell companies to stop broadcasting these networks.
    They asked how the companies dealt with all the disinformation coming from these channels.
    And if the were going to continue to broadcast.
    I guess someone has to be held accountable for all the lies and conspiracy theories these channels spewed.

    One hour ago in post #282, you throw shade on President Joe Biden's highly qualified nominee to head the Dept of Health and Human Services, Dr. Levine, a transgender person.

    In this post you throw shade on Amazon's right, as a private corporation, to discontinue sales of a book about transgender people. The same book can still be purchased in plenty of other online retailers.

    ... if it walks like a hypocrite and talks like a hypocrite then you must be a ....

    Only line that needs to be shown.
    Shows you why the house managers neglected to give an actual timeline of events that occurred. Radical extremists were already laying siege to the capitol before President Trump even said the words “go and CHEER on our representatives” and “PEACEFULLY and patriotically protest”.


    So to all you liberals.....tell me again how this is Trump’s doing............................................. .I’ll wait.
