    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add

    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

Nobody is thrilled to see some of the detention centers open back up but it appears they're actually making an effort to make them as livable as possible while kids are processed and aren't just dumping them there for longterm holding. He's discouraging people from making the trip up or sending their kids. His administration is apparently working on a system with Central American countries to allow more of these people to apply for asylum without needing to make the long and dangerous trip.

    That and some media outlets hungry for those kind of hate/outrage clicks that brought them so much sweet traffic during the Trump era. They're desperate to find controversies/drama anywhere since it's not in as steady supply nowadays.
    Besides the opening of detention centres... I see very little talk about turning away people immediately using some rule Trump used to not have to deal with asylum claims.

    Always a good scene but I was remembering the waiter, "This is master pain, now do as he says or he will cut off your big toe".

    I think at some point he should realize that no matter what he does (within morally acceptable boundaries), he will not get credit from the right for it. If he 'moderates' his stance, or his actions on the border, at NO point will conservative media admit that he is actually doing so; they will shift their focus to all of the other things he ISN'T doing.

    They've always been out there. The news is finally paying attention to them in far greater detail then before.

    That’s still funny... Right wing media called Obama supporting open borders... while everyone else called him Deporter in Chief... truly, two opposite realities...

    I think because Trump isn't the center of attention anymore we're back to hearing the usual crap from around the country on the news.

    Both scary and comforting.

    GOP senator blocks bill to prevent private debt collectors from seizing stimulus checks https://t.co/Rw6tsCCewI https://t.co/ujeqPk1OsY
    https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1...735201283?s=19

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) on Thursday blocked legislation that would prevent private debt collectors from being able to seize stimulus checks sent out under the latest coronavirus relief bill.

    Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) attempted to pass legislation to shield the payments from being garnished by private debt collectors.
    You should read the article. Holy Bleep it's a legislative shitshow.

    Basically cause of Senate rules they could not get language in then I guess cause of reconciliation rule Toomey could block it.

    So yeah people debt collectors can garnish the checks. Oh this couldn't happen in the December bill, so it's a shitshow.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...disqualifying/

    Nice video compilation of Republican members of Congress dismissing Trump's tweets and saying they don't matter, or that they don't look at social media, and then clutching their pearls over tweets dug up from years ago about Biden nominees.

    Reminder: Mean political tweets haven't been, and probably shouldn't be a disqualifying factor for a political appointee. If they weren't for Trump and his lackies, they shouldn't be for Biden and his lackies.

    Just another reminder that while Democrats have their problems, Republicans still remain "the problem".

    Becerra is confirmed. Collins was the only GOP that voted for him. Not all that surprised, Maine is a Democrat trifecta state.

    There are two underlying reasons for conservative hostility to Becerra. The first and most obvious is that he’s a devil-figure to the anti-abortion movement, mostly because as Attorney General he was willing to prosecute anti-abortion activists (including those who conducted the famous “sting” interviews with Planned Parenthood staff without disclosing they were taping and editing the content for publication) who violated the law in their zealotry. But, in truth, any HHS nominee in a Democratic administration will be attacked for supporting judicially established reproductive rights that anti-abortion activists typically regard as genocidal. It is part of the bargain Republican pols have struck with the Christian Right to regard its bitterest enemies as their own; hence the heat towards Becerra for standard liberal views on the subject.

    Perhaps an equally important factor in the GOP antipathy toward Becerra is that he was the great courtroom sparring partner of the Trump administration on a broad range of issues. When Trump and his appointees demonized the Golden State as a rogue jurisdiction run by business-hating hippies and threatened regulatory or legislative punishment, Becerra didn’t go into a defensive crouch. He aggressively went to court to fight the administration’s “regulations and rollbacks involving climate change, immigration, consumer rights and more,” as California reporter Byrhonda Lyons observed in January as Trump left office:

    California filed 110 lawsuits against the Trump administration. The attorney general’s office won 23 and lost five. Six are on hold, and 76 are pending. So far, that’s an 82%-18% win-loss rate over the Trump policies that state officials contested.

    So when Republican senators denounced Becerra as “radical,” they mostly meant he was radically good at his job. He’ll need to be similarly effective at HHS, given its vast jurisdiction during the final stages of the battle against COVID-19 and Biden’s efforts to reverse the damage to health-care coverage Republicans have caused in Washington and the states.

    Becerra’s confirmation leaves just three Cabinet posts unfilled: secretary of Labor (former Boston mayor Marty Walsh is the nominee), director of the Office of Science and Technology (Biden has nominated pioneering geneticist Eric Lander), and director of the Office of Management and Budget. Withdrawn OMB nominee Neera Tanden represents the only casualty Biden has suffered in Cabinet confirmations, and he hasn’t named a replacement yet. Becerra’s Senate vote was the closest so far. But the fact that, in addition to Collins, all those moderate Democrats voted for the “radical” Becerra is a good sign.


    Wot! Not bad at all. Where was Trump with his cabinet posting 100 days in?

    GOP Sen. Pat Toomey on blocking bill to prevent private debt collectors from seizing stimulus checks: "I don't think it's unreasonable to ask people to pay their bills."

    Again MAJOR Asshole move. I posted b4 but it has some shit Senate rule shit also. Also Toomey retiring so he is definitely doing this to get some BIG money from the debt collection people.

    Biden on track to pass 100 million vaccinations, with time to spare The administration will hit its goal well before 100 days, marking an early victory for Biden's pandemic response.

    President Joe Biden is on track to surpass his goal of administering 100 million Covid-19 shots as soon as Thursday, notching the milestone about six weeks before the 100-day deadline he set for his new administration.

    Over 97 million shots had been administered since Biden took office, as the country is now providing almost 2.5 million doses per day.

    Biden is scheduled to deliver remarks on the state of vaccinations Thursday afternoon.

    The milestone, on Biden's 58th day in office, marks an early victory for the president, who campaigned on taking control of a pandemic response that the Trump administration had largely pushed off onto states.
