Still, people are curious as to WHY with all the accumulating evidence demonstrating the shocking level of fraud that occurred in the 2020 Election on behalf of the Biden campaign, WHERE is the FBI, WHERE is the U.S. Department of Justice, WHERE are the legions of elected Republicans demanding answers to this horrendous mess? Is it because they think this won’t happen to them if everything returns to ‘normal?’ Don’t be so naïve.

Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 172,340 confirmed cases, 2,895 confirmed deaths, but like California, the brutish governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.

Elsewhere, U.S. Attorney-General William Barr says the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the country that would overturn the election results.

Only one other president- Grover Cleveland- accomplished this by being the 22nd and the 24th presidents of the United States. Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard becomes yet another industry located in California to throw in the towel and to announce it’s moving to Texas. Note- just don’t bring your left-wing politics with you and tear up the Lone Star State. Elsewhere, former President Barack Hussein Obama slams those seeking to ‘defund the police,’ calling them ‘crazy.’ Speaking of the police, the Fraternal Order of Police reports that in 2020, 283 cops have been shot across the country with an astounding number of 44 killed in action.
