The two crybabies will have to answer that question in 7 months, when Republicans either take over the Jan 6th Committee, or restart the committee and take charge.
Republicans aren’t going to save us. We must completely dismantle the two party system or nothing will ever change.

Cracks in the mantle allowing extra water loss?
I was thinking more like severe mismanagement in allowing so many to tap off that lake....
For those who do not know...California HAS 1 or more desalinization plants....
Due to the idiots in govt it has never been used or kept up and at this point would require millions $$$ to repair and get it up and running taking years....

Does this fit?
The Supreme Court Justices have now ruled on 2 cases out of the 9 that they have before them.
Are we at #3525?
Was the corn ready for harvesting?
It is now.
[93 dk] 9 Supreme Court Judges. 9 cases were to be decided on. The vote for Roe vs Wade was 6-3. The vote for the gun bill was 6-3. I expect the rest will be decided on the same split.
What about the dk?
Could K= Kavanaugh and the d= death threat?
Just thinking this could be an analogy. The cases had to be presented [planted], argued [watered, fertilized, weeded], Supreme Court Judges had to contemplate [tend the crop] and then the final decisions [harvest].
The sequence of the cases...right to carry right before this decision was made and many are expecting organized riots.
Biden picks former DARPA director Arati Prabhakar as next science adviser
If confirmed by the Senate, Prabhakar would replace the genomics researcher Eric Lander, who resigned as the head of the White House science office in February amid a workplace-bullying scandal.
The new post would be Prabhakar’s third tour as head of a federal science office. She ran DARPA, the high-stakes military research agency, from 2012 to early 2017, and served as director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the 1990s.
Prabhakar, 63, would inherit the White House science office at a tenuous moment for its science policy agenda. Her responsibilities would likely include overseeing the administration’s recently relaunched “Cancer Moonshot” and the launch of ARPA-H, the new life sciences research office modeled after DARPA.

Technofog is reporting that the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision is out!
Roe v. Wade is dead.
The fight for life now turns to the States.
Today, the Supreme Court overturned nearly 50 years of bad abortion law: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled.”
The issue of abortion will be left to the States.
That’s a long way of getting to Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion.
... This will define Justice Alito’s legacy. (Remember also the legacy of those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes during confirmations, etc. And of the Presidents who appointed them.) It will also be part of the legacy of each Justice who voted with Alito: Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. Especially for Kavanaugh. The false attacks of rape and sexual assault during his confirmation were just a precursor to the current threat to his life - and the lives of his wife and young daughters - by an armed leftist ready to die for abortion rights and gun control.
Then there’s Chief Justice John Roberts. He didn’t join his colleagues in the opinion, and instead concurred in the judgment. He argued the right to abortion, and whether to overturn Roe, should have been left for another time: “there is a clear path to deciding this case correctly without overruling Roe all the way down to the studs: recognize that the viability line must be discarded, as the majority rightly does, and leave for another day whether to reject any right to an abortion at all.”
In other words, Justice Roberts would prefer the Court correct its mistakes at another time. The present is inconvenient for him. The majority opinion recognized Roberts’ maneuvering, stating “the concurrence’s most fundamental defect is its failure to offer any principled basis for its approach.”
On the merits, Justice Alito has delivered a thorough and sound opinion, holding that Roe (and Planned Parenthood v. Casey) be overruled because “the Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision.” Until Roe, there “was no support in American law for a constitutional right to obtain an abortion. Zero. None.” Certainly not in “federal or state court.” Thus, “Roe was on a collision course with the Constitution from the day it was decided.”
In response to arguments that abortion is a fundamental right not specified in the Constitution, Alito noted that at the time the 14th Amendment was adopted, “three-quarters of states had made abortion a crime at any stage of pregnancy, and the remaining States would soon follow.” Alito was equally dismissive of the claim that stare decisis requires the survival of Roe:
“Stare decisis . . . does not compel unending adherence to Roe’s abuse of judicial authority. Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division.”
The dissent from Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan was unconvincing and borderline hysterical. They argued the Court now “says that from the very moment of fertilization, a woman has no rights to speak of.” The phrase “no rights” is particularly inaccurate and egregious (maybe that was the point), as pregnant women have the same rights as anyone else. Or is speech not a right?
I guess this means the Riots are about to kick off.

The People’s Liberation Army Navy and the Russian Pacific fleet have, since mid-June, sent two separate surface action groups around the Japanese home islands.
“The fact that about 10 Russian and Chinese ships sail around Japan on the same route in a short period of time is a display of the military presence of both countries around Japan,” Kishi said.
Seven Russian warships sailed near Hokkaido toward the Izu Islands on June 15. Five of the ships sailed in the waters between Okinawa and Miyakojima toward the East China Sea on June 21. The group sailed through the Tsushima Strait toward the Sea of Japan, almost making a circle of the Japanese archipelago, he said.
