Relocating a Commercial Spacecraft at the Space Station on This Week @NASA – July 23, 2021

Relocating a commercial spacecraft at the space station, while another one gets ready to launch to the station, and Perseverance prepares for a mission miles...

You were and are a disgrace. A pencil pusher taking combat credit. What a joke! How many guns were confiscated? ZERO!! Man if that would of been a black man……would of been like 18 years What’s the average sentence for waving a flag at a protest? Should have gotten 8 years This man has his finger on the nuclear trigger.

One can see that they'll all get off lightly. The FBI is extremely slow in rounding them all up, and the DOJ is too lenient. There is little justice in America. Why I left the gop 2 of my 9 grandkids. Someday they’ll ask me about Jan 6th. FinalStraw Yet a Black Voter in Houstan TX was charged with a crime and could get 20 years, the last Voter on the long line of voters who had a Felony on his record from 25 years ago

A bit of hyperbole there wow

O.C. Rep. Katie Porter is No. 5 in fundraising among all House membersRep.

I would love to see this judge sentencing history Rep. Gallego, if you call the protest on the capitol to be the closest you have been in combat, then you have never been in combat, which makes you a liar and a coward. You are my congressman. And I am proud to be represented by you.. I totally agree.. If he were a person of color, he would have gotten 20 years. Black lives Matter.

I thought felonies carried a minimum of 1 year prison time. Terrorism is a felony, right? Back in the 1800s he would’ve swung from his neck. What happened to my great great great great grandfathers America? THIS IS BS‼️ BLM BURNED DOWN POLICE PRECINCTS WITH COPS STILL INSIDE AND GOT LESS‼️ YALL THINK THIS IS FUNNY NOW, JUST WAIT. YALL ARE GIVING THE GOVERNMENT OBCENE AMOUNTS OF POWER AND ONE DAY WHEN THEY DONT NEED YOU ANYMORE THEY WILL TURN AND USE THAT FACIST POWER AGAINST YOU‼️

Told you RubenGallego yessir!!!! Wait . So far no one was charged with sedition? These are all misdemeanors?

GOP Rep. Malliotakis slams Texas Dems who fled state then tested positive for COVID'Obviously they think this is all fun and games, but the people of Texas elected them for a reason, and that is to show up to work,' the Republican congresswoman told Fox News. And where was you at when Ted Cruz left for Cancun when the power grid failed? Did the people of TX elect you to take away their voting rights? Isn’t it interesting how these klan members never seem to acknowledge their role in trying to act like their klan member grand parents and the democrats had no choice! Never take blame. My goodness these people will never change!

GOP Rep. Ron Johnson Skewered In Ad For Claiming Insurrectionists Were 'Peaceful'The Wisconsin senator is also committed to the 'Big Lie' of a fraudulent election and to 'rigging the system to retain power.' Before the election Donald was campaigning. After the election Donald was orchestrating a seditious conspiracy under 18 USC 2384. Timing matters. Here are warnings about it starting from November 11th, eight weeks before January 6th. Except it's not a big lie and a the Arizona audit is proving that in resounding fashion. Everybody is waking up to the truth now.

Florida rep. claims Fox News and Ron DeSantis are responsible for state’s COVID surgeDeSantis recently passed a law prohibiting local jurisdictions from imposing new COVID restrictions, and is selling anti-vaccine merchandise, like t-shirts that read “Don’t Fauci My Florida.” California is 1 on the list for cases and deaths so obviously it has nothing to do with the vaccine. What's next? Is he going to rule that communities can't tell their restaurants that they must make employees wash their hands?

Florida Rep. Vern Buchanan tests positive for coronavirus after vaccinationRep. Vern Buchanan says he has tested positive for coronavirus after being fully vaccinated and is experiencing very mild symptoms and quarantining at home. It's time to quarantine Florida. This is not news.

NHL Prospect Luke Prokop Announces He's Gay, 'No Longer Scared To Hide'Luke Prokop -- a third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft -- just announced he's gay ... saying in a statement Monday, 'I am no longer scared to hide who I am.'
