7 Things: ‘America First’ is over, ADPH tells vaccine providers to use it or lose it, Biden takes a House seat from Alabama and more …
7. QAnon was never a thing
- There was never a secret plot by President Donald Trump and his administration to punish a cabal of deep state, pedophiles and criminals. The movement known as QAnon was a conspiracy theory, and the suggestion that the inauguration of Joe Biden would be stopped so Trump would remain was just nonsense.
- While the focus of the media is always on the more ridiculous Trump supporter to demonize all of them, they were just weapons to use against Trump. One Q forum user summed it up by saying, “Q was a LARP the entire f—ing time,” with LARP being a reference to “live-action role-playing games.”
6. President Biden is just a guy who isn’t President Trump
- President Joe Biden has already copied the Trump administration in how he plans to handle the coronavirus pandemic, so why not also try and copy something from before Donald Trump was president and start saying, “You’re fired!” all over the place?
- Biden has now said that anyone working with him could be fired if he hears them “treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot. On the spot.” Biden emphasized that “everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity.”
5. Montgomery mayor is what he hates
- On Inauguration Day, Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed posted on Twitter, “I prefer to focus on the class that’s coming in rather than the trash that just went out.” This was in celebration of President Joe Biden being sworn in.
- Many people reacted on social media by saying that Reed needed to “rise above” acting like this and not to engage in petty social media jabs that have become so popular in politics. Of course, there were a few who agreed with Reed and the way he spoke about President Donald Trump leaving office.
4. Carl and Moore reached out to Biden administration
- U.S. Representatives Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) and Jerry Carl (R-Mobile), joined by 16 other freshman lawmakers, sent a letter to President Joe Biden in an effort to work together on “extended targeted, meaningful coronavirus relief for families and businesses.”
- The letter also says that they want to work on trying to “protect Americans with pre-existing conditions.” They go on to say they’re also interested in how they can “enforce our antitrust laws against emboldened technology monopolies and restore our economy struggling in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.”
3. Biden decides illegal immigrants will be included in the Census count
- President Joe Biden intends that illegal immigrants will be included in the 2020 U.S. Census count and included when considering how U.S. House seats are distributed. This act alone could cause Alabama to lose a congressional seat.
- There’s an estimate that the difference between Alabama keeping or losing a congressional seat might only be about 6,000 people. Previously, U.S. Representative Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall have said that illegal immigrants being included in apportionment will disproportionally hurt Alabama due to the low number of illegal immigrants in the state.
2. Vaccine providers will lose doses if they don’t use them fast enough
- The Alabama Department of Public Health has announced that health care providers that don’t administer the coronavirus vaccine doses fast enough will have them removed and those doses will be sent to places that will use them faster.
- ADPH said, “Unused vaccine will be redirected to other providers will administer vaccine faster.” The department added that they’re “surveying all providers in the state to ensure that all administered doses have been properly reported to ADPH.”
1. Biden’s big first day
- President Joe Biden has a pen and a phone, along with a lapdog media ready to grovel at his feet all day, and now he is ready to implement the agenda of the people who elected him. That all started on day one with 17 executive actions.
- The actions cover immigration, climate change, the economy, racial and LGBT grievances, and government accountability. This was done with executive orders, memorandums and proclamations. Biden’s decisions on immigration, the World Health Organization, Paris Climate Accords and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program show us that Trump’s “America First” era is over and there is a new President of the United States.
