    Big Pharma has 1700 lobbyists, 3 for every member of Congress. They'll find a way to keep screwing us.

    So do the Greens. You tend to focus on odd things.

    Special interest groups are odd? If you say so.

    Agree. Not a fan of SIGs on both sides. You focus on very interesting things. Oil, Pharma, etc...

    “I was afraid they were going to set off an explosion on one of the side streets. So we tried to stay in the middle, tried to get there early, tried to stay away from the sides. And if something like that happened, I had a first-aid kit. I could help out.”

    - Ray Epps, from an interview with the FBI


    Who the hell is Ray Epps? More importantly, why isn't he in jail?


    Ray Epps was seen in multiple video clips the day before and the day of the Jan 6 demonstrations trying to rally people to go into the Capitol. Shortly after those videos emerged, he was placed on the FBIs Most Wanted List. Strangely, his name disappeared from that list after a short time. Now we find out that he's admitting that he was apparently aware of the pipe bombs that were found near the Capitol. He should be one of the top suspects in this event, right? And yet the FBI has apparently let him slide. Why? Does he actually work for or with the FBI?


    And what about those pipe bombs? There are five facts about the pipe bombs that are particularly strange:

    1) The pipe bombs — according to the Capitol Police Chief Stephen Sund and Inspector General — were planted as a “diversion” to distract law enforcement shortly before 1 p.m., when the breach of the Capitol’s perimeter was just getting started. According to the official timeline, the breach started just one minute after Capitol Police were informed about the pipe bombs just two to three city blocks away.

    2) The pipe bomber used an old-fashioned mechanical timer with a one hour max time setting, but planted the bombs at roughly 8 p.m. the night before January 6 — 17 hours before they were found.

    3) The pipe bombs were constructed with no remote detonation ability, meaning their purpose as a diversion relied solely on the “luck” of being found at the right time, between noon and 1 p.m., to match the one-hour timer appearing to target the 1 p.m. Congressional certification vote.

    4) The first pipe bomb was found at 12:40 p.m., with 20 minutes left on the timer, perfectly matching the exact timing needed both to “divert” police as the breach began at 12:50 p.m., and to convince police the bomb was timed to the 1 p.m. Congressional vote.

    5) The timer didn’t just have 20 minutes left. It was left stuck on the 20 minute dial.


    Where's the surveillance footage of the pipe bomber planting the DNC pipe bomb?

    If she goes independent, it'll be a chore for her just to get on the ballot in all 50 states. Doubt she'd consider herself Libertarian, but you never know.

    None.

    However, she may steal some from Biden if she runs as an I.
