SORRY JACK, THAT'S NOT SCIENCE, IT'S TYRANNY!

POLITICS-SCIENCE

The progressive communist democrat science mindfuck.

It’s about time to call out the narcissism and self-focus surrounding the agenda of so-called trans individuals who demand, under penalty of law, that we accept and celebrate their delusion that men can be women and women can be men. A scientific impossibility that is crippling our society as it erodes social conventions and norms. This includes the nonsense about the use of made-up words that purport to identify the many different gender identities claimed by the activists.

This is quite a departure from gay rights, where natural attractions between two individuals of the same sex are, well, natural, and that legal rights conferred to statutorily-coupled married individuals should be applied to both groups equally through a statutory “civil union,” a “personal relation arising out of a civil contract between two persons, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary.”

When biologists discuss sex as being “binary,” it denotes that there are only two sexes based on the binary classification between sperm  (small gametes) and ova (large gametes). Differences beyond gametes, including genetic chromosomal differences, hormone levels, and average morphological and behavioral differences, are a combination of social constructs used to define the cultural and social distinctions between males and females.

It is also true that, in a free society, you should be able to believe anything you want as long as you do not assume the moral or legal authority to force someone else to accept your belief, right or wrong. Hence, forced transgenderism is about power and has very little to do with freedom.

What we are seeing is a different manifestation of the power equation used by progressive communist democrats who want to destroy today’s society by corrupting social and cultural norms and substituting a version of a perverted society that grants perpetual authoritarian power over the population—defining freedom not as an inalienable right, but a privilege to be dispensed by the ruling elite as a reward for proper behavior or withheld as punishment for wrong thinking.

Science…

Science can be considered “unscientific or not science” when it deviates from the principles and methodologies that define the scientific method. Science relies on empirical evidence gathered through systematic observation, experimentation, data collection, and analysis rather than based on sparse anecdotal evidence, faith, belief, or feelings. If a claim or theory lacks supporting evidence or cannot be tested empirically, it falls outside the realm of science. Likewise, scientific theories must be falsifiable, meaning there must be a way to potentially prove them wrong through observation or experimentation. Claims that cannot be tested or proven false do not have a scientific basis and remain hypothetical.

Bottom line…

I am tired of the progressive communist democrats using “science” to excuse and implement authoritarian policies that lack scientific plausibility or fail to adhere to the scientific method.

We are so screwed.

OF COURSE, ACADEMIC HISTORIANS CLAIM TRUMP IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY

At a time when the human rights and checks and balance protections built into the U.S. Constitution are being ignored by the progressive communist democrats, they have the temerity to suggest that Franklin Delano Roosevelt (#2), Barack Obama (#7), and Joseph Biden (#14) are presidents of note, even though they have fundamentally transformed America in unhealthy un-American ways., including the destruction of systemically important institutions.

The 2024 “Presidential Greatness Project Expert Survey” ranking of presidential greatness, from President George Washington to Joe Biden, finds that former President Donald J. Trump ranks dead last (10.92). 

What else would you expect from an “echo chamber” of academics existing in an environment overpopulated with progressive communist democrats?

Likewise, as expected, we find the top ratings being awarded to Abraham Lincoln (95.03 average), Franklin Delano Roosevelt (90.83), George Washington (90.32), Teddy Roosevelt (78.58), Thomas Jefferson (77.53), Harry Truman (75.34), Barack Obama (73.8), and Dwight Eisenhower (73.73).

The rating scale of 0-100 for overall presidential greatness ranged from 0=failure, 50=average, and 100=great.

By their own words, “There are also several presidents where partisan polarization is evident – Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Obama, and Biden – but interestingly not for Bill Clinton,” they make a mockery of their findings.

But President Joe Biden’s #14 rating (62.66) is the final nail in the coffin.

Putting aside the fact that Biden’s presidential record is incomplete, one wonders how anyone, let alone a group of experts, rates a corrupt, mush-headed, congenital liar whose foreign policy prescriptions have overwhelmingly been on the wrong side of history so highly.

By their words, ye shall know them…

Bottom line…

This online survey is bullshit and would have been more appropriately presented on April 1, 2024 – April Fools’ Day.

This academic association’s inherent and apparent political bias stems from various factors, including the composition of its membership and the prevailing ideologies within the academic discipline it purports to represent. Perhaps we should examine the leadership of the American Political Science Association, which claims it is the “foremost organization of social science experts in presidential politics,” including the board of directors and executive committee who may hold certain political leanings that shape the direction of the organization and its activities.

According to the survey results, 525 respondents were invited to participate, and 154 usable responses were received, yielding a 29.3% response rate. This suggests only the most motivated and possibly the most biased and engaged individuals were likely to respond.

We are so screwed.

-- Steve

The 2024 Presidential Greatness Project Expert Survey was conducted online via Qualtrics from November 15 to December 31, 2023. Respondents included current and recent members of the Presidents & Executive Politics Section of the American Political Science Association, which is the foremost organization of social science experts in presidential politics, as well as scholars who had recently published peer-reviewed academic research in key related scholarly journals or academic presses.

FORGET TAIWAN: WILL THE COMMUNIST CHINESE EVENTUALLY OWN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA?

Watching

It was no surprise that a Communist Chinese spy served for almost twenty years in U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco Office, including while she was the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Surprisingly, however, the spy was allowed to retire with his pension and without government prosecution. The Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and as her liaison to the Asian-American community. The spy even attended Chinese consulate functions as a stand-in for Senator Feinstein. Feinstein was quick to point out that none of her California office staffers possessed a security clearance, as if this matters when discussing sensitive matters with a staffer nearby--who becomes a near-invisible functionary.

So why should I be surprised to find that the San Francisco Elections Commission has, for the first time in history, appointed a non-citizen who is ineligible to vote as an election official?

More surprising is that Hong Kong native Kelly Wong is an immigrant rights advocate. Wong is said to have arrived in the United States to pursue graduate studies in 2019.

Something seems fishy here as Wong claimed she would also continue her work for the progressive advocacy group Chinese for Affirmative Action—a non-government organization founded in 1969 whose mission is to protect the “civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States.” This suspiciously sounds like one of many pro-China front organizations. Wong has worked with the influence group since 2022.

Chinese influence groups seeking citizenship and political power?

WHAT WE DO

Comprising 11 Asian American social justice groups, the Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) network focuses on long-term movement building, capacity infrastructure, and leadership support for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders committed to social justice.

Amidst a pandemic and surge in anti-Asian hate, AACRE grassroots groups are supporting and leading marginalized populations including immigrants, refugees, formerly incarcerated individuals, and LGBTQ+ people.

Together, we are advancing an inclusive vision of justice for all communities.

HOW WE DO IT

AACRE leverages the power of its network by developing the relationships, critical connections, and unique strengths that exist among its member groups. Shared capacity work includes access to common facilities, financial management, and administrative support systems. Strategic communication and collaborative efforts include retreats, convenings, information sharing, and joint projects that promote a culture of trust, mutuality, and transformation.

THE ASIAN AMERICANS FOR CIVIL RIGHTS AND EQUALITY GROUPS:
  • The Alliance of South Asians Taking Action, works to educate, organize, and empower the Bay Area South Asian communities to end violence, oppression, racism and exploitation within and against diverse communities
  • APEX Express is a weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Asian Americans from all corners of the community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, djs, and activists and airs each week on KPFA 94.1FM.
  • The Asian Prisoner Support Committee works with Asian and Pacific Islander prisoners to educate the broader community about the growing number of APIs in the U.S. being imprisoned, detained, and deported.
  • Asian Refugees United builds intergenerational and inter-ethnic power for positive lasting change through sharing art, healing, culture and political engagement. Started in 2007 as a project of Forward Together, ARU addresses workers’ rights and community health issues in general by building the voice, visibility and power of Bhutanese and Vietnamese immigrant and refugee communities in East Oakland.
  • The mission of Chinese for Affirmative Action is to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. CAA advocates for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial injustice.
  • Hmong Innovating Politics is a grassroots organization whose mission is to strengthen the political power of Hmong and disenfranchised communities through innovative civic engagement and strategic grassroots mobilization.
  • Hyphen is a news and culture magazine that tells the stories of Asian America, beyond identity, featuring emerging artists, thinkers and doers. By documenting and disseminating these stories, Hyphen contributes to the ever-expanding, multifaceted narrative of Asians in America.
  • Lavender Phoenix works to build LGBTQ+ Asian and Pacific Islander power by amplifying the voices and increasing the visibility of LGBTQ+ API communities. Through organizing, Lavender Phoenix inspires and trains leaders, establishes intergenerational connections, and documents and disseminates histories.
  • The Network on Religion and Justice for Asian and Pacific Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer People works to nurture and support efforts toward a fully inclusive Asian Pacific Islander faith community.
  • VietUnity Bay Area – promotes a progressive voice within the Vietnamese Community. Through alliance building, community education, organizing, and collective action, Viet Unity Bay Area works towards positive social change that acknowledges and combats all forms and systems of oppression. VietUnity Bay Area connects it work to broader multi-racial and multi-class movements for social justice and systemic change.
  • Visibility Project is a national portrait and oral history archive highlighting queer Asian Pacific American women, trans, and gender non-conforming communities. The Visibility Project utilizes powerful photography and personal storytelling narratives that embrace the intersections of queer APAs.

According to her bio, Wong has worked with the United Nations International Organization for Migration, which seems to facilitate and fund illegal migration into the United States.

“Born and raised in Hong Kong, I moved to the US in 2019 and finished a master degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. I have devoted my career to championing immigrant rights and equity and inclusion. Prior to graduate school, I worked closely with victims of trafficking, migrant domestic workers, and refugees in Hong Kong while working at Fair Employment Agency, International Organization for Migration, and UNHCR. I am currently working at Chinese for Affirmative Action, which is the fiscal sponsor of Stop AAPI Hate campaign, to provide legal services and advocate for low‐income AAPI immigrants in San Francisco.”

Bottom line…

Consider how many military-age Chinese men are transgressing our open border under the Biden open borders policy. How many will infiltrate American businesses, including those associated with critical infrastructure? [Alarming Rise in Military-Aged Chinese Men Entering US Illegally, Border Patrol Union Chief Warns]

There is no need to engage in war when Americans are willing to sell out their nation for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver or a sexual fling.

Remember Eric Swalwell, another Bay Area Democrat, and his romp with Chinese operative Fang-Fang. The same Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee who was defended by liar, leaker, perjurer, and evidence fabricator Adam Schiff, who is now running for the U.S. Senate.

Or foreigners fighting the battle in our Courts, using our own Constitution and laws against us—lawfare.

We are so screwed.

TRUMP RULING: IGNORE THE LAW, IGNORE THE FACTS, STOP TRUMP IN 2024

Judge-trump-justice

In an amazing display of progressive communist democrat police state justice, New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron found that Trump was guilty of fraud, conspiracy, and issuing false financial statements and false business records, and fined Trump and the Trump Organization  $370 for a standard business practice with no declared victims.

There was no trial; the prosecution’s case, using a never-applied law, was conducted by the Judge based on the attorney-filed briefs, after which he held Trump guilty as charged. The only thing to be decided at trial was the penalty to be assessed.

Considering the outrageous amount of the fine, one must ask about the disposition of funds since there were no declared victims—or is this a case of state forfeiture of assets where the money flows to satisfy New York’s budget deficit?

The Judge found Trump’s former attorney, fraudster and perjurer Michael Cohen, a credible witness because his State-sponsored testimony aided the State’s case.

"Although the animosity between the witness and the defendant is palpable, providing Cohen with an incentive to lie, the Court found his testimony credible, based on the relaxed manner in which he testified, the general plausibility of his statements, and, most importantly, the way his testimony was corroborated by other trial evidence. A less-forgiving factfinder might have concluded differently, might not have believed a single word of a convicted perjurer. This factfinder does not believe that pleading guilty to perjury means that you can never tell the truth. Michael Cohen told the truth."

The Judge appears upset that Trump did not confess, roll over, and beg the Court’s mercy.

"Their complete lack of contrition and remorse borders on pathological. They are accused only of inflating asset values to make more money. The documents prove this over and over again. This is a venial sin, not a mortal sin. Defendants did not commit murder or arson. They did not rob a bank at gunpoint. Donald Trump is not Bernard Madoff. Yet, defendants are incapable of admitting the error of their ways. Instead, they adopt a 'See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' posture that the evidence belies."

Adding a little poetry…

“The English poet Alexander Pope (1688-1744) first declared, ‘To err is human, to forgive is divine.’ Defendants apparently are of a different mind.”

Who was really calling the shots?

CO-JUDGE

Bottom line…

Of course, the ruling will be appealed, and the matter will drag on through the courts—enriching attorneys as they delay and delay.

Undoubtedly, the prosecutor, the Judge, and affiliated parties should be impeached, removed from office, and prosecuted for attempting to interfere with a federal presidential election. Trump should sue the State of New York and the Democrat Party to recover expenses, punitive damages, and an official policy.

We should all be thankful to Donald Trump for revealing the depth of corruption in the Democrat Party and the institutions it has corrupted over the years since Barack Obama was elected.

We are so screwed.

NATIONAL ANTI-SCIENCE FOUNDATION SUBVERTS SCIENCE

Consensus

Once again, we are visiting the Orwellian corruption of the scientific method.

You know, the methodology where a researcher proposes a hypothesis, conducts experiments or evaluates existing data, publishes their results with a conclusion, and then allows others to replicate, validate, falsify, or improve the subject matter. Of course, the key to the process is to allow dissent, including presenting what might be considered erroneous or contradictory information that contradicts existing beliefs, narratives, or the fashionable science of the day.

Therefore, it pains me greatly to find that the National Science Foundation spent millions of taxpayer dollars on artificial intelligence tools to censor or suppress information that runs counter to the regime’s official narrative—or “misinformation” as they, the grand poohbahs, deem it.

It reminds me of those esteemed scientists who considered Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity hogwash because it significantly modified classical Newtonian mechanics—banding together to publish a book titled “Hundert Autoren Gegen Einstein” (One Hundred Authors Against Einstein), which contained anti-relativity essays of varying length.

When asked to comment on this denunciation of relativity by so many scientists, Einstein replied that to defeat relativity one did not need the word of 100 scientists, just one, in fact. <Source>

Or, Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman who claimed:

I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of uncertainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything, and there are many things I don’t know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask why we’re here.”

So, I must question the motives of the National Science Foundation and deduce that they have been captured by the regime wanting to promote a narrative that serves their own self-interests. In this, they have corrupted both themselves and the scientific method.

Consider the science, or should I say non-science and nonsense behind COVID-19 research.

Fd

There is little doubt, given the benefit of hindsight, that a relatively small group of politicized scientists helped create a catastrophic pandemic and then sought to cover up their individual culpability and that of their respective agencies. Likewise, much of the information this group of individuals released was erroneous and devoid of scientific validity. When big money Pharma intersected with corrupt politics, the stage was set for those desiring to suppress non-narrative information about the disease’s origins, the efficacy of certain treatments, and the harm that this entire affair wreaked on the world.

Additionally, some sought to suppress other political scandals, some rising to the level of treason or prosecutable crimes against humanity.

A significant portion of the politisphere was apparently engaged in a coverup of epic criminality and wrongdoing.

So why am I not surprised to see the regime continuing to suppress anti-narrative information and punish dissidents?

1200px-The_Washington_Times_(2019-10-31).svg

The National Science Foundation spent millions of taxpayer dollars developing censorship tools powered by artificial intelligence that Big Tech could use “to counter misinformation online” and “advance state-of-the-art misinformation research.”

House investigators on the Judiciary Committee and Select Committee on the Weaponization of Government said the NSF awarded nearly $40 million, including $13 million to three universities and a software company, to develop AI tools that could censor information far faster and at a much greater scale than human beings.

The University of Michigan, for instance, was awarded $750,000 from NSF to develop its WiseDex artificial intelligence tool to help Big Tech outsource the “responsibility of censorship” on social media. University researchers promoted the tool as a way to “get people off our backs for how we act on misinfo and … do things we know work without backlash.”

In an interim staff report released Tuesday by lawmakers on the two panels, investigators say the NSF “forged ahead” with the project despite evidence it clearly understood its actions amounted to censorship.

Lawmakers say NSF officials tried to hide their actions from the media and to curb negative scrutiny by blacklisting conservative outlets and legal scholar Jonathan Turley, who were all writing about or investigating the foundation’s funding of the development of social media censorship tools.

Foundation officials intentionally removed videos and hid public information about funding for the program in response to requests from news outlets they disliked. NSF officials also rejected media requests from outlets that produced coverage they deemed negative.

In a Feb. 2, 2023, email to officials at six universities participating in the AI censorship tool program, NSF Program Director Michael Pozmantier warned about “groups that want to frame the projects … in a negative light.”

He told the institutions that NSF “is not responding to requests from people who are interested in attacking our programs or your projects. … It’s best if you also ignore it.”

The foundation paid the nonprofit software company Meedan $5.75 million to build its Co-Insights program that would use AI to combat so-called misinformation. When Meedan applied for the hefty grant, company officials pitched its relationships with WhatsApp, Telegram and Signal as a way to develop a tool that would proactively “identify and limit susceptibility to misinformation” and “pseudoscientific information online.” Methods would include open-web crawling and “controversy detection identifying possible content for fact-checking.”

The team at Meedan boasted to the NSF it was using AI to monitor 750,000 blogs and media articles daily in addition to mining data from major social media platforms, the report said.

The presentation slides used in their pitch, obtained by House lawmakers, provided insight into what the company had determined to be misinformation. It included “undermining trust in the mainstream media” and cited as an example criticism of the New York Times for “ignoring Black-on-Asian hate crimes” in its coverage. <Source>

Explain to me how any program monitoring the scientific literature, the legacy media, the so-called social media, or institutional activities can derive the “truth” using pattern matching or aggregated mentions without further research and analysis.

The answer is that it can’t be done as the training of the artificial intelligence programs is already biased by the selection of its training materials and the constraints of its system designers. Given a group of left-biased researchers funded by left-biased entities and restricting training input to approved or consensus-driven left-biased materials—the result will be both inaccurate and inauthentic.

And to punish someone based on pseudo-scientific and baseless bullpucky is, in my opinion, both anti-science and criminal.

This brings me to the thoughts of another Nobel Laureate, Friedrich August von Hayek, whose Nobel Lecture was titled “The Pretense of Knowledge.”

It seems to me that this failure of the economists to guide policy more successfully is closely connected with their propensity to imitate as closely as possible the procedures of the brilliantly successful physical sciences – an attempt which in our field may lead to outright error. It is an approach which has come to be described as the “scientistic” attitude – an attitude which, as I defined it some thirty years ago, “is decidedly unscientific in the true sense of the word, since it involves a mechanical and uncritical application of habits of thought to fields different from those in which they have been formed.”

He was calling out his colleagues for claiming a level of scientific certainty that was scientifically impossible in the social sciences.

Considering Feynman again…

Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts. When someone says ‘science teaches such and such’, he is using the word incorrectly. Science doesn’t teach it; experience teaches it” (Richard Feynman, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, p.187).

Or my favorite quote from philosopher John Searle …

“Science has become something of an honorific term, and all sorts of disciplines that are quite unlike physics and chemistry are eager to call themselves ‘sciences’. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is that anything that calls itself ‘science’ probably isn’t — for example, Christian science, or military science, and possibly even cognitive science or social science. The word ‘science’ tends to suggest a lot of researchers in white coats waving test tubes and peering at instruments. To many minds it suggests an arcane infallibility. The rival picture I want to suggest is this: what we are all aiming at in intellectual disciplines is knowledge and understanding. There is only knowledge and understanding, whether we have it in mathematics, literary criticism, history, physics, or philosophy. Some disciplines are more systematic than others, and we might want to reserve the word ‘science’ for them.” (Minds, Brains and Science, p. 11, Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1984).

Including "political science“and computer science.”

Bottom line…

The progressive communist democrats are fond of telling us we should defer to the enlightened elites and experts who run the government and have our best interests at heart.

So who and where are the elites, and how did they screw up a brilliant system created by our Founding Fathers?

We are so screwed.

BIDEN WILLING TO SELL OUT ISRAEL TO APPEASE RADICAL MUSLIMS IN MICHIGAN

Hamas-kidnapping

There is no doubt in my mind that President Biden is a corrupt, mentally compromised egomaniac who is being manipulated by former anti-Semitic, anti-White, and anti-America President Obama and his acolytes.

Undoubtedly, Biden is not fit for office, but that does not stop the Biden Administration puppet masters from trying to secure Michigan’s electoral votes – even if it means pandering to Jew-hating, terrorist-supporting Muslims in Dearbornistan.

Author and Journalist John Nolte nails Biden…

Arab-lies

Nolte: Biden Desperate to Appease Michigan Arabs Who Hate Israel

His Fraudulency Joe Biden is losing a crucial part of the Arab vote in Michigan, and if Biden loses Michigan, he will almost certainly lose his reelection bid.

“Since October 7, many Arab Americans in Michigan have become increasingly furious with Mr. Biden over his support for Israel and have vowed not to vote for him again,” reports the National. “The situation could prove consequential for Mr Biden in the battleground state he narrowly won last time.”

The story goes on to report that Biden is so concerned about losing Dearborn’s Arab vote that he sent “senior administration officials last week to meet elected officials and local leaders to try to win voters back.”

Dearborn and “the wider Wayne County area is also home to the highest concentration of Arabs and people of Arab descent in the US, earning it the nickname ‘the Capital of Arab America.'”

In one case, Biden himself spent 20 minutes on the phone with one guy trying to explain himself:

In the expected 2024 rematch between former President Trump and Hunter’s Dad, Trump is thumping Biden by 5.1 points in the Real Clear Politics average poll of Michigan polls. This is quite the turnaround. Throughout all of 2020, Trump never once led in Michigan. In fact, Trump never came closer than three points down.

Not to mix my metaphors, but this is Karma; this is what happens when you do business with the Devil… And no, I am in no way claiming all Arabs are devils. Far from it. Biden and the Democrat Party climbed into bed with all of America’s antisemites — and that includes a whole load of white, overprivileged college kids and academics.

And rather than rebuke these modern-day Third Reichers, Democrats like Biden and former President Obama shame themselves by welcoming them into the tent with a whole bunch of stupid American Jews.

But now the Devil has come for his due. Biden has no choice but to support Israel. The obscenities of October 7 left no gray area to hide behind. Even a number of stupid American Jews see that now, which puts Biden and the Democrats in a bind that only the unprincipled face: Abandoning Israel to genocidal maniacs will cost me votes! Doing the right thing will cost me votes! What do I do!?!?

All Biden can do is leak about how much he hates Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, pander to the Jew-haters, and complain how Israel might be going too far. Thankfully, that appeases no one. That approach only exposes Biden for what he is: a craven and unprincipled hack who would nuke Israel if it won him a second term. <Source>

Bottom line…

Watching

Former President and anti-Semite Jimmy Carter, the father of America-hating Islamo-fascism, can rest easy as he is no longer considered the worst president in modern history—that accolade goes to Joe Biden, followed by Barack Obama—both anti-Semite racists who have sold out our country to its enemies for thirty pieces of silver.

No matter how much certain American Jews ignore Israel and the Jewish people or wish they were something else, they are descendants of the ancient Israelite ethnic group. To stand idly by and watch the progressive communist democrats abandon Israel and its fight for decency and Western culture is to forfeit your humanity.

We are so screwed.

WHY ARE PEOPLE ATTACKING TUCKER CARLSON FOR HIS VLADIMIR PUTIN INTERVIEW?

TC-1

As far as I can tell, Tucker Carlson’s only crime in interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin is that he upset the Administration’s narrative regarding the necessity for Ukraine to continue with a fruitless war and the necessity of receiving additional billions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer funds, much of which flows into the coffers of the U.S. Military-Industrial complex.

Carlson’s post-interview conclusions support the need for a planned end to the war between Ukraine and Russia, with Russia retaining control over Crimea and Ukraine’s Donbas region, questioning whether Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy can sell a very costly peace to his people after the loss of a significant portion of his population of young men, and the widespread destruction of the country.

Considering that the United States precipitated the conflict in 2014 with the Maidan Revolution, which removed a Russian puppet governor and taunted Russia with Ukraine’s potential membership in NATO, I wonder if the current Obama/Biden Administration will pursue peace or will defer to the next Administration.

Ironically, Tucker Carlson chose the 2024 World Governments Summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as his first forum to discuss/defend his interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin 

Carlson’s interview with Egyptian media mogul, investor, political TV presenter, and journalist Emad el-Din Adeeb portrayed America in decline, with cities that lag far beyond other world centers and an America with naïve and infantile government leadership.

The Summit, whose theme is “Shaping Future Governments.” is the Arab equivalent of the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, where the wealthy, powerful, and politically connected individuals and leaders engage in “see and be seen” events to further their particular interests.

Anyone familiar with modern Dubai knows it is a monarchy founded on the Ruler’s belief that economic development and a relatively tolerant society were the keys to his survival in a hot hell-hole of a desert. It is one of the safest Middle Eastern cities for business people and tourists due to its stricter laws and harsh punishment of criminals. It is understood that the Ruler gets his share of the proceeds and has a modern tax collection and surveillance system.

Many individuals like the authoritarian government, and wish the system could be imported into the United States with its more favorable climate and abundant natural resources.

However, while Dubai’s authoritarian system has facilitated rapid development and modernization, it’s debatable whether such progress could be replicated in the United States, which thrives on innovation, creativity, and individual initiative. Like many authoritarian systems, entrenched businesses can discourage creative destruction and risk-taking, essential components of a vibrant nation. Not to mention the pandering to a permanent underclass, including criminals.

Carlson, a “Preppie” at any age…

Although portrayed as a “conservative” television host, political commentator, and journalist known for his sharp wit, provocative opinions, and confrontational interviewing style, he appears to be an elite grown-up liberal preppie whose values derive from his rather detached outlook. It is well-known that he is dyslexic and does not actively participate on social media platforms or other online forums.

Bottom line…

Leave Tucker Carlson alone and condemn those journalists who have ceased to be professionals and who appear to be fabulists rather than fact-gatherers—elevating narrative over news for their self-interests.

We are so screwed when members of the so-called press are no longer willing to speak truth to power.

THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ARE SELLING OUT ISRAEL

JORDAN

Considering that Jordan is an artificially-created country with a history of committing genocide against Palestinian Arabs and driving them from the region to create modern-day refugees, Jordan’s King Abdullah II should shut the fuck up and go home. Nothing he can say adds to the conversation other than inbred anti-Semitism.

The modern state of Jordan, officially known as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, emerged out of the breakup of the Ottoman Empire after World War I and the subsequent redrawing of borders in the Middle East by colonial powers.

Black September, also known as the Jordanian Civil War, was an armed conflict between Jordan, led by King Hussein, and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), led by Chairman Yasser Arafat. The main phase of the fighting occurred between 16 and 27 September 1970, though certain aspects of the conflict continued until July 17, 1971.

During the Black September conflict in 1970, Jordanian forces indiscriminately bombed Palestinian refugee camps, killing men, women, children, and the infirm. The conflict arose from tensions between the Jordanian government, led by King Hussein, and various Palestinian factions operating within Jordan. The Jordanian government aimed to suppress Palestinian guerrilla activity, which it viewed as a threat to its authority and stability.

The conflict escalated into intense fighting, with Jordanian military forces, including the Royal Jordanian Air Force, conducting airstrikes and artillery bombardments on Palestinian refugee camps, particularly those in and around Amman, the capital of Jordan. These bombings resulted in significant casualties and destruction within the camps.

Since the mid-2000s, the Jordanian government has engaged in a policy of stripping some Palestinians of their Jordanian citizenship, often on apparently arbitrary grounds. According to Human Rights Watch, at least 2,700 Palestinians had their Jordanian citizenship revoked between 2004 and 2008.

Jordan king urges 'lasting' Gaza ceasefire in talks with Biden

Jordan's King Abdullah II appealed for a full ceasefire to end the Gaza war after talks with Joe Biden, striking a discordant note with the US president who is seeking a shorter six-week pause to give Israel time to defeat Hamas.

Speaking at the White House, the two leaders both warned however against any indiscriminate Israeli ground incursion into Gaza's southern city of Rafah, where more than a million Palestinians are trapped.

[OCS: Didn’t stop Jordan’s indiscriminate shelling and bombing of Palestinian refugee camps in 1970.]

"We cannot afford an Israeli attack on Rafah. It is certain to produce another humanitarian catastrophe," said the Jordanian monarch, taking the lectern after Biden had spoken first.

[OCS: The last thing Jordan wants is Palestinian refugees in Jordan. Pretty much why they ignore calls to resettle displaced Gazans in Jordan.]

"We cannot stand by and let this continue. We need a lasting ceasefire now -- this war must end," added Abdullah, who has repeatedly pushed for a full truce to end the conflict that started when Hamas attacked Israel on October 7.

[OCS: Can anyone remember what Jordan has done for the United States in the Middle East?]

The United States has angered some Middle East allies by consistently refusing to call for a full ceasefire, with Washington saying that it backs Israel's drive to defeat Hamas, and calling for shorter pauses with hostage deals instead.

But Biden, who is seeking reelection in November, has started to take a harder line with Israel on civilian casualties, saying last week that Israel's offensive was "over the top."

[OCS: Biden needs the Muslims in Dearbornistan to swing Michigan’s electoral votes, so he is willing to sell out Israel.]

IOMFirst of 10,000 Syrian Refugees Resettled to USA in “Surge” Operation

United States - Ahmad’s family were this week the first Syrian refugees to leave Amman, Jordan to be resettled in the United States as part of a three-month, US “surge” operation to process 10,000 refugees.

“The family is the first to depart after having been granted refugee status by US immigration officers during our three-month resettlement surge operation that began on February 1,” said US Ambassador to Jordan Alice G. Wells, who met the family at Queen Alia International Airport on April 6.

The family boarded a plane bound for Chicago, Illinois, before reaching their final destination in Kansas City, Missouri, yesterday.

The surge operation is being supported by IOM’s Resettlement Support Center for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in Amman.

[OCS: THE CAPITAL OF JORDAN.]

In order to do our part in meeting President Obama’s directive of 10,000 Syrian refugee arrivals in the US by September 30, we have interviewed and assisted hundreds of refugees daily since February 1,” said Regional Program Manager Jeanette Camarillo.

On April 6 IOM opened a new office at Queen Alia International Airport [OCS: IN JORDAN] for the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) to conduct additional security checks before the refugees depart.

“Ahmad’s family has taken many difficult steps since they were forced to flee Syria and live as refugees in Jordan. But now we are delighted to see them take their flight to the US and to embark on a new life in Kansas City,” Camarillo said.

Ahmad, with his wife and five children, fled to Jordan after the start of the conflict in Syria. Back home, in Homs, he worked as a blacksmith, construction worker and farmer. He was also a victim of arbitrary arrests, detention, and torture in 2011, before witnessing several relatives injured by indiscriminate shelling. His five-year old son was diagnosed with a hole in his heart and is designated for medical treatment in the US.

“Their new life in America will afford Ahmad’s children a safe and secure environment in which to live, medical attention that they require, the education opportunities that they need to grow, and a share in the dignity that they deserve,” said Ambassador Wells at the airport before the family departed.

As of March 31, 29,055 refugees from around the world have been resettled in the US under the USRAP. In total, 85 000 refugees should be admitted into the country during the 2016 fiscal year ending in September.

Bottom line…

One of the items under discussion is the resettlement of “our fair share” of Gazan refugees—a total disaster for the Jewish community and America in coming years.

Let them take their 7th-century religion and keep it out of the United States.

We are so screwed.

HOW CORRUPT ARE CALIFORNIA'S PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS?

CORRUPT-CALIFORNIA-DEMOCRATS

For those who do not know, Southern California is located in the Mojave Desert, an arid region including southeastern California and portions of Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. Other than local wells, most of Southern California’s water comes from the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada Mountains or imported from the Colorado River.

All water activities are managed by the progressive communist democrats in this one-party state. Democrats who pander to a communist environmental movement that refuses to build additional dams to even out the periodic natural drought cycle, demands the destruction of additional dams, denies agricultural water shares, deliberately pump more than 2 billion gallons of fresh water into the ocean to protect certain fish species, and continues to import hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens without building-out the water supply.

To say California is screwed is an understatement.

WE AT WAR WITH THE DEMOCRATS

Break-glass

If you haven’t noticed by now, the Democrats are destroying America from within by corrupting and bankrupting those institutions associated with our security and safety.

They are destroying our Constitution and The Rule of Law with insane laws and administrative rules and regulations that carry the force of law--all enforced by activist judges and hand-picked juries of useful idiots who would instead support the viewpoint of their peers rather than uphold justice and the law. That includes the U.S. Supreme Court with squishes like Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett. And if nobody has noticed, there are three progressive communist democrats, Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Ketanji Brown Jackson, and Elena Kagan, who are willing to subvert the Constitution to issue nonsensical rulings and dissents when things don’t go their way.

But now the attack on America has advanced to a clear and present danger...

Since when have we welcomed individuals we can’t possibly vet?

President Donald Trump signed Executive Order 13780, "Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States" on March 6, 2017, placing restrictions on entry to the U.S. by nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and barred entry for all refugees who did not possess either a visa or valid travel documents.

The Democrats characterized the ban as anti-Muslim and rushed to court to challenge the Executive Order on constitutional grounds, claiming a violation of religious freedom.

On September 24, 2017, President Trump replaced Executive Order 13780 with Presidential Proclamation 9645, "Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry Into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats," which banned banned entry for nationals of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Chad, Venezuela, and North Korea.   

Again, the Democrats turned to the courts.

On February 21, 2020, Presidential Proclamation 9983, "Improving Enhanced Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry Into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats," added restrictions on nationals of six additional countries: Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgystan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania.

Again, no surprise here, the Democrats turned to the courts.

On January 20, 2021, President Joe Biden signed Presidential Proclamation 10141, "Ending Discriminatory Bans on Entry to The United States," as his second proclamation after taking office--thus revoking the Trump Administration bans and welcoming nationals from terrorist nations into the United States.

Senate bill renews effort to enlist non-citizens in the military

Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) is leading a renewed push to allow the Defense Department to enlist people who have lived in the U.S. for at least five years, including those who entered the country unlawfully as children and are now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

Residents who have temporary protected status and individuals who have an approved petition for an immigrant visa would also be eligible to serve in the military under the legislation as long as they meet the qualifications of the service branch.

“Allowing highly qualified, long-time residents of our great nation the opportunity to serve the country they’ve come to love is a commonsense way to give the services better access to talented potential recruits and improve our military’s readiness in the process,” said Duckworth, a former Army Black Hawk pilot and Iraq War veteran.

Non-citizens who want to join the military must have a permanent resident card, also known as a green card, and be able to speak, read and write fluently in English.

In 2008, the Defense Department began an initiative to expand recruitment to certain non-citizens with medical, foreign language and other in-demand skills but the controversial program, called the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest, was suspended in 2017.

In the years since, nearly all the service branches have seen the gap between their recruitment goals and enlistment numbers widen. Only about 24% to 27% of young people ages 18 to 24 meet the requirements to serve and even fewer have the desire to enlist.

“Our military services are facing unprecedented challenges meeting their recruitment goals — in part due to a historically small pool of eligible recruits,” Duckworth said.

She said the bill, named the Enlist Act, would expand the pool of candidates and help the military fill its dwindling ranks. It would also give individuals who enlist under the proposed legislation an opportunity to become naturalized citizens, as non-citizen service members are now able to do through an existing process.

Air Force Gen. Charles “CQ” Brown, the nominee to become the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also expressed support for the measure during his confirmation hearing in the Senate last week. <Source>

Selling out America using the diversity, equity, and inclusion canard…

In a 2021 interview with CNN’s Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin set the regime's expectations...

Starting with the expected preface: the US military is the “best military in the world today,” not only because of the technology, but because of the people that “populate our ranks,” he went on to explain...

“I think we’re doing a great job in terms of recruiting the right kinds of people, providing access to people from every corner, every walk of life in this country. As long as you’re fit and you can qualify, there’s a place for you on this team."

Austin argued that a diverse US military force “must be a part of who we are.”

“We represent the United States of America. We ought to look like America and not only in the ranks,” he told Starr. “But our leadership should look like America.” <Source>

Is that America before or after the invasion of illegal aliens with an allegiance to their nation of origin or an anti-civilization 12th-century religion?

Are these warriors picked by color, sex, or diversity-- worrying about the feelings of our enemies instead of completing their mission?

Great idea, folks!

Allow those who do not wish us well access to intelligence, strategic plans, and weapons. But most of all, copy Communist China’s plan to import soldiers from other regions that do not share the same familial blood relations and culture to suppress those in other regions. More succinctly, replace those soldiers who will never obey an order to fire on American citizens with those who are willing to do so.

Bottom line...

To say we are moving beyond being screwed is becoming an understatement of the clear and present danger posed by the Democrat Party and their bloodlust for raw power over America and everything American.

And there is no doubt in my mind that this destruction of our American institutions is intentional and is being orchestrated by our enemies, including one individual Democrat who somehow, almost miraculously, reached the Presidency of the United States and whose acolytes have continued his battle to destroy America from within.

We are at war with the Democrats!

While Republicans may not be the perfect solution to our problems, at least, unlike the progressive communist democrats,  they didn't cause them.

We are so screwed.

DANTE KING, ANOTHER RACE HUSTLER?

Dk-a

"Whites are psychopaths. And their behavior represents an underlying biologically transmitted proclivity with roots deep in their evolutionary history. There's no discussion about the delusion and perversion of whiteness."

I, for one, am tired of blacks, queers, and other groups claiming that there is something pathological about being heterosexual white males in an exceptional nation. At the same time, they line their pockets preaching hate and racism under the guise of academic research.

Not only have they invented their own language of hate and division, but most are self-serving grifters playing the very system that allows them to prosper from hate, division, and racism.

Profiting from racism…

The book…

The 400-Year Holocaust: White America’s Legal, Psychopathic, and Sociopathic Black Genocide - and the Revolt Against Critical Race Theory by Dante D. King


The 400-Year Holocaust: White America’s Legal, Psychopathic, and Sociopathic Black Genocide - and the Revolt Against Critical Race Theory examines and discusses factions of the legal history of anti-blackness and Whiteness through colonialism and the United States, and its impacts on present-day America. It centers anti-blackness as the core tenet of “racism” in White America and amplifies its relationship to the inherent “value” of Whiteness (I.e., White identity, White culture, White institutions, etc.). The text repositions and critically examines four core White American economic, moral, socio-cultural, and ideological institutions: human sex trafficking, rape, pedophilia, and violence (murder). Furthermore, it positions racism as a disease/illness (I.e., psychosis, psychopathy, sociopathy, etc.), rather than a mere “social construct”.

The workbook…

The 400 Year Holocaust: Toolkit and Workbook by Dante D. King

The 400 Year Workbook is a roadmap for Leaders and Practitioners seeking to design and implement anti-racism focused strategies, tools, and practices into their organizations. Dante King provides a combination of clear policy and procedure-driven frameworks, organizational action plans, leadership competentcies, and skill practices. Leaders are provided hands on opportunities and experiences needed to move from planning into action, through application practice and accountability. 


Dk-3The course…

This 12-week series provides an overarching examination of the construction of Whiteness, White identity, White supremacy and Anti-Blackness.   It discusses the creation and infusion of these conditions into American culture (through legality, politics, government, education, religion, language, cultural ideology, and economics). The experience presents a visual landscape of laws and images which highlight the formation of Whiteness and Anti-Blackness in America. It examines the infusion of Anti-Blackness and Whiteness into and across all American institutions, synthesizing a conglomeration of hundreds of texts, journal articles, documentaries, videos, and more. Learners walk away with newfound decolonized perspectives about the roles race, racism, and intersectionality functions in their everyday lives, in America and abroad. Most importantly learners begin the process of confronting antiblackness and other types of racial biases in the ways they approach learning, teaching, research, decisioning, and leading. The course also supports and is aligned with the book, The 400-Year Holocaust: White America’s Legal, Psychopathic, and Sociopathic Black Genocide – and the Revolt Against Critical Race Theory.

This series will also include and be co-led by New York Times Best Selling Author Robin DiAngelo

Bottom line…

I believe that Booker T. Washington--probably the next mob victim of the cancel culture--best says this about race hustlers.

“There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

Bottom line…

There is no doubt that race-hustling is profitable. Look at the careers of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Ibram X. Kendi, and Robin DiAngelo. All advancing the idea that America is systemically racist and that white heterosexual males are at the root of most oppression. All believe in reverse racism that disadvantages one class in favor of another class. They are all, by definition, racists. And, in most cases Marxists and communists. 

Confront them with a black judge, jury, and defendant, and ask them to point out the systemic racists. In most cases, they shift the argument to excusing criminal behavior that occurred because of systemic racism. Confron these race baiters with the fact that blacks from other countries come to America and prosper--and they have no answer. Ask them about the Democrats as the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK, and the dissemble. Ask them why, despite billions of dollars poured into areas governed by Democrats, nothing has changed. Demand they study systematic Democrat oppression and they shut the hell up.

Unfortunately, it is the progressive communist democrats who have decided that racism and sexuality can replace the original proletariat versus bourgeoisie conflict as the basis of Marx’s classic revolutionary theory.

I find it pathetic that a generation of pussified males and brainwashed women cannot stand up and point to black racism as racism when they encounter grifters telling us we are psychopaths, sociopaths, and racists to boot.

We are so screwed.

P.S. Those who want to suggest this opinion is racist, I don't care, I am an American, not a hyphenated-American.

BIDEN'S DILEMMA: FILEGATE

HILLARY-HYPOCRISY
There is no chance that our corrupt and compromised Attorney General, Merrick Garland, will instruct the Department of Justice to hold President Biden accountable for his actions.

Dilemma. Noun. di·​lem·​ma də-ˈlem-ə also dī-: a situation in which one has to choose between two or more things, ways, or plans that are equally unsatisfactory: a difficult choice.

Unless President Biden totally ignores Special Counsel Robert K. Hur’s report, “Report of the Special Counsel on the Investigation Into Unauthorized Removal, Retention, and Disclosure of Classified Documents Discovered at Locations Including the Penn Biden Center and the Delaware Private Residence of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.,” he must agree that he has dementia, and thus is unfit for office or a nomination for office, or he knew what he was doing and is guilty as charged.

Likewise, it is unlikely that Biden will be charged with using the powers of his office to facilitate a criminal enterprise, which includes being an unregistered foreign agent of another sovereign power, coercion, money laundering, tax evasion, and possibly treason if he provided classified information to a hostile foreign power even though a recorded confession of a quid pro quo arrangement protecting his son’s employer has been widely aired by media outlets.

Who really is the guilty party?

Obama-arrogant

Most of the damage was committed during the Obama Administration. It should be attributable to Barack Obama, the Communist-in-Chief who has presided over much of the progressive communist democrat destruction from within.

The Trump tragedy...

These same corrupt progressive communist democrats are prosecuting persecuting former President Trump for a classified documents case where Trump, unlike Biden, possessed declassification powers and was subject to different federal rules and regulations than Biden.

And, unlike Biden, Trump should have additional powers that render him immune from prosecution. Given the number of ginned-up prosecutions designed to keep him out of the 2024 election cycle in favor of a literal vegetable, this is a clear and present illustration of progressive communist democrat tyranny. 

Bottom line…

We are so screwed.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT HUR DELIVED A NEW TANK OF HILLARY-COLORED WHITEWASH TO JOE BIDEN

Doj-fbi-corrupt

When will these progressive communist democrats be held responsible for selling out their office to the highest bidder, in this case, to hostile foreign powers.?

The freshly delivered Hur Report, “Report on the Investigation Into Unauthorized Removal, Retention, and Disclosure of Classified Documents Discovered at Locations Including the Penn Biden Center and the Delaware Private Residence of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.” has concluded…

Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen. These materials included (1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and (2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden's handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods. FBI agents recovered these materials from the garage, offices, and basement den in Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Delaware home.”

Additionally, the report noted the use of private emails, fake names for official business, and sharing White House Communications with his family members.

The classified documents and other materials recovered in this case spanned Mr. Biden's career in national public life. During that career, Mr. Biden has long seen himself as a historic figure. Elected to the Senate at age twenty-nine, he considered running for president as early as 1980 and did so in 1988, 2008, and 2020. He believed his record during decades in the Senate made him worthy of the presidency, and he collected papers and artifacts related to significant issues and events in his career. He used these materials to write memoirs published in 2007 and 2017, to document his legacy, and to cite as evidence that he was a man of presidential timber.”

“In 2009, then-Vice President Biden strongly opposed the military's plans to send more troops to Afghanistan. U.S. policy in Afghanistan was deeply important to Mr. Biden, and he labored to dissuade President Obama from escalating America's involvement there and repeating what Mr. Biden believed was a mistake akin to Vietnam. Despite Mr. Biden's advice, President Obama ordered a surge of additional U.S. troops, and Mr. Biden's views endured sharp criticism from others within and outside of the administration. But he always believed history would prove him right. He retained materials documenting his opposition to the troop surge, including a classified handwritten memo he sent President Obama over the 2009 Thanksgiving holiday, and related marked classified documents. FBI agents recovered these materials from Mr. Biden's Delaware garage and home office in December 2022 and January 2023.”

“Also, during his eight years as vice president, Mr. Biden regularly wrote notes by hand in notebooks. Some of these notes related to classified subjects, including the President's Daily Brief and National Security Council meetings, and some of the notes are themselves classified. After the vice presidency, Mr. Biden kept these classified notebooks in unsecured and unauthorized spaces at his Virginia and Delaware homes and used some of the notebooks as reference material for his second memoir, Promise Me, Dad, which was published in 2017. To our knowledge, no one has identified any classified information published in Promise Me, Dad, but Mr. Biden shared information, including some classified information, from those notebooks with his ghostwriter. FBI agents recovered the notebooks from the office and basement den in Mr. Biden's Delaware home in January 2023.”

It is likely that Biden’s ghostwriter did not have sufficient clearance to review classified materials and no mention is made regarding the possibility that the ghostwriter possessed, retained and used these documents outside of a classified documents facility. And it appears that he, too, gets a pass.

“After telling the Special Counsel's Office what he had done, the ghostwriter turned over his computer and external hard drive and consented to their search. Based on the FBI's analysis. it appears the FBI recovered all deleted audio files relating to the memoir, though portions of a few of the files appear to be missing, which is possible when forensic tools are used to recover deleted files. The ghostwriter kept, and did not delete or attempt to delete, his near-verbatim transcripts of the recordings and produced those transcripts to us, including for each of the incomplete recovered files. We considered whether to charge the ghostwriter with obstruction of justice, but we believe the evidence would be insufficient to obtain a conviction and therefore declined to prosecute him. While the ghostwriter admitted that he deleted the recordings after he learned of the special counsel's investigation, the evidence falls short of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he intended to impede an investigation, which is the intent required by law. In his interviews, the ghostwriter offered plausible, innocent reasons for why he deleted the recordings.”

“Marked classified documents about Afghanistan. These documents from fall 2009 have classification markings up to the Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information level. They were found in a box in Mr. Biden's Delaware garage that contained other materials of great personal significance to him and that he appears to have personally used and accessed. The marked classified documents were found along with drafts of the handwritten 2009 Thanksgiving memo Mr. Biden sent President Obama in a last-ditch effort to persuade him not to send additional troops to Afghanistan. These materials were proof of the stand Mr. Biden took in what he regarded as among the most important decisions of his vice presidency.”

“Mr. Biden wrote his 2007 and 2017 memoirs with the help of a ghostwriter. In a recorded conversation with his ghostwriter in February 2017, about a month after he left office, Mr. Biden said, while referencing his 2009 Thanksgiving memo, that he had "just found all the classified stuff downstairs." At the time, he was renting a home in Virginia, where he met his ghostwriter to work on his second memoir. Downstairs from where they met was Mr. Biden's office, where he stored his papers. He moved out of the Virginia home in 2019, consolidating his belongings in Delaware-where FBI agents later found marked classified documents about the Afghanistan troop surge in his garage.”

“Evidence supports the inference that when Mr. Biden said in 2017 that he had "just found all the classified stuff downstairs" in Virginia, he was referring to the same marked classified documents about Afghanistan that FBI agents found in 2022 in his Delaware garage.”

“Nevertheless, we do not believe this evidence is sufficient, as jurors would likely find reasonable doubt for one or more of several reasons. Both when he served as vice president and when the Afghanistan documents were found in Mr. Biden's Delaware garage in 2022, his possession of them in his Delaware home was not a basis for prosecution because as vice president and president, he had authority to keep classified documents in his home. The best case for charges would rely on Mr. Biden's possession of the Afghanistan documents in his Virginia home in February 2017. when he was a private citizen and when he told his ghostwriter he had just found classified material.” 

However, for the reasons summarized below, we conclude that the evidence does not establish Mr. Biden's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Prosecution of Mr. Biden is also unwarranted based on our consideration of the aggravating and mitigating factors set forth in the Department of Justice's Principles of Federal Prosecution. For these reasons, we decline prosecution of Mr. Biden.”

This statement should apply to former President Trump and all charges immediately dropped.

“Historically, after leaving office, many former presidents and vice presidents have knowingly taken home sensitive materials related to national security from their administrations without being charged with crimes. This historical record is important context for judging whether and why to charge a former vice president and former president, as Mr. Biden would be when susceptible to prosecution-for similar actions taken by several of his predecessors.”

Sticking it to Trump…

“With one exception, there is no record of the Department of Justice prosecuting a former president or vice president for mishandling classified documents from his own administration. The exception is former President Trump. It is not our role to assess the criminal charges pending against Mr. Trump, but several material distinctions between Mr. Trump's case and Mr. Biden's are clear. Unlike the evidence involving Mr. Biden, the allegations set forth in the indictment of Mr. Trump, if proven, would present serious aggravating facts.”

“Most notably, after being given multiple chances to return classified documents and avoid prosecution, Mr. Trump allegedly did the opposite. According to the indictment, he not only refused to return the documents for many months, but he also obstructed justice by enlisting others to destroy evidence and then to lie about it. In contrast, Mr. Biden turned in classified documents to the National Archives and the Department of Justice, consented to the search of multiple locations including his homes, sat for a voluntary interview. and in other ways cooperated with the investigation.”

About those classified documents at the Communist Chinese-funded Penn Center…

The FBI recovered additional marked classified documents at the Penn Biden Center, elsewhere in Mr. Biden's Delaware home, and in collections of his Senate papers at the University of Delaware, but the evidence suggests that Mr. Biden did not willfully retain these documents and that they could plausibly have been brought to these locations by mistake. We also investigated whether persons other than Mr. Biden knowingly mishandled these classified documents, and our investigation showed that they did not. In reaching these conclusions, we note the numerous previous instances in which marked classified documents have been discovered intermixed with the personal papers of former Executive Branch officials and members of Congress.”

The 25th Amendment...

Hur documents Biden’s dementia; memory loss dates back a decade -- considering how corrupt Biden's cabinet members are, it is unlikely they will pursue a 25th Amendment removal from office. But what does this say about Biden continuing to run for office? 

“Mr. Biden’s memory was significantly limited, both during his recorded interviews with the ghostwriter in 2017, and in his interview with our office in 2023.”

“In his interview with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was worse. He did not remember when he was vice president, forgetting on the first day of the interview when his term ended (‘If it was 2013 — when did I stop being vice president?’), and forgetting on the second day of the interview when his term began (‘In 2009, am I still vice president?’).”

“He did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”

“Mr. Biden’s apparent lapses and failures in February and April 2017 will likely appear consistent with the diminished faculties and faulty memory he showed in Zwonitzer’s interview recordings and in our interview of him.”

THIS SETS THE STAGE FOR BIDEN'S WITHDRAWAL FROM THE NOMINATION AND THE SELECTION OF A MORE FAVORABLE LAST-MINUTE CANDIDATE -- WHICH WILL LEAVE THE GOP UNPREPARED AND UNABLE TO USE BIDEN AS A FOIL.

Bottom line…

BullshitShades of James Comey and Hillary Clinton—the evidence is there, but for various reasons, we decline to prosecute this Democrat.

At this point, only the reelection of Donald Trump can fix this cesspool of injustice.

I also wonder if the deep state timed this report to crowd Tucker Carlson's interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin out of the news cycle--and yes, I am that cynical and skeptical.

We are so screwed.

FOR THOSE WORRIED ABOUT 2024 ELECTION INTEGRITY

For those of you who have been called conspiracy theorists, crazies, or worse because you have questioned the election integrity of the 2020 Presidential Election, you are not alone.

On Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. E.T., the Committee on House Administration held a full committee hearing titled “American Confidence in Elections: Confronting Zuckerbucks, Private Funding of Election Administration.”

The entire question of election integrity was eloquently summarized by journalist and author Mollie Hemmingway...

The American system of self-governance is under attack.

Instead of an Election Day where everyone votes at the same time and with the same full set of information, votes are counted quickly, and everyone promptly knows and trusts the outcome, we now have lengthy election seasons that can last months prior to and even after Election Day. The situation is so absurd that we have presidential and gubernatorial debates weeks after some people have voted.

Instead of having total security and a verifiable chain of custody for ballots being issued, cast, and counted, we flood addresses across the country with tens of millions of unsupervised mail-in ballots months ahead of elections, frequently to locations from which voters, if they’re even alive, have long since moved.

Instead of having election administration that is rigorously nonpartisan and impartial under the law, we have allowed the private takeover of government election offices by partisan oligarchs and their armies of activists who use those offices and their authorities to tilt the election toward favored candidates.

Instead of voters being able to vote for the candidate of their choice, powerful interests backed by wealthy oligarchs are working to remove the most popular candidate -- and the ruling party’s chief opponent from the ballot -- in a move reminiscent of Soviet Russia. And if that weren’t enough, instead of the top candidates chosen by the people being able to fully engage in a vigorous campaign heading into the election, we have one side actively attempting to throw its opponent in prison and bankrupt his family, moves that are also reminiscent of Soviet Russia.

Instead of a system of rule of law that gives Americans the same rights and due process, the Department of Justice and other partisan actors prosecute their political opposition – whether powerful or lowly -- and do so only in places where partisan courts and juries will ensure a quick conviction.

Instead of a free and independent press that shares news and information to inform voters on crucial matters, we have a press that is almost exclusively the arm of one political party and is so corrupt that it is willing to perpetrate hoax after hoax against opposition party members.

Instead of a vibrant public square where Americans can debate issues and express their strongly held views, we have an elaborate censorship industrial complex where the government works hand in hand with tech oligarchs to suppress and blacklist debate on all the important issues that contribute to election outcomes. This is something I know firsthand because my own government worked with tech companies to censor me for my election reporting.

Allowing just one of these attacks to infect our electoral system would be a crisis. Allowing all of them at the same time is an existential threat to our system of self-government.

In my best-selling book on how election administration has been co-opted by groups seeking political power, I reported on a new phenomenon in the 2020 election that has already severely eroded trust and needs to be addressed decisively. In the last presidential election, nonprofit groups with strong ties to the Democrat Party -- and funded by one of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg -- took over government election offices, most notably in the Democrat areas of swing states.3 Since then, the efforts by partisans to further infiltrate government election offices to ensure favorable outcomes have only increased.

According to the most recent census data, more than 12 percent of residents move every year and a 2012 Pew study found that about one out of every eight voter registrations in America are “no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate.” As a result, many ballots circulate for weeks before Election Day, and elections are increasingly being decided by technologically sophisticated ballot harvesting operations that parachute into decisive battlegrounds and scare up enough votes from otherwise unmotivated voters to overcome the natural enthusiasm of informed and self-motivated voters who make the effort to get to the polls.

While aggressive ballot harvesting by political parties and interest groups is certainly concerning, the 2020 election saw the advent of something far more sinister. A sophisticated national partisan turnout operation funded by an activist billionaire and run by ideological statisticians ran get-out-the-vote and ballot harvesting operations to benefit Democrats directly out of local election offices.

In 2020, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan distributed $328 million in grants known as “Zuck Bucks” to local election offices – and another $69.5 million to state election offices -- ostensibly to help local election infrastructure cope with the COVID crisis. However, these grants were distributed via two progressive groups: the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), whose entire budget as recently as 2018 had been a comparatively paltry $1.4 million, and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), which is run by left-wing activist David Becker.8 One of CTCL’s founders is Tiana Epps-Johnson, who had also been an Obama Foundation fellow as well as an employee at the Voting Rights Project for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, an advocacy group which received funding from George Soros and some of the biggest left-wing foundations in the country. Epps-Johnson founded CTCL with Whitney May and Donny Bridges. All three worked on election-related activism together at the New Organizing Institute, which The Washington Post described as “the Democratic Party’s Hogwarts for digital wizardry.”

Not surprisingly, these Democratic party activists "awarded all larger grants – on both an absolute and per capita basis to deeply Democratic urban areas," particularly in swing states, according to a report by William Doyle, research director at the Caesar Rodney Election Research Institute, and Alex Oliver, chief data scientist at Evolving Strategies, a nonpartisan research group.

After being criticized for exploiting local government election offices to juice Democratic voter turnout, Zuckerberg commissioned his own report highlighting the fact that “more Republican jurisdictions, defined as municipalities that voted for Trump in 2020, applied for and received grants.”

However, this was deeply misleading. Republican jurisdictions were far more likely to receive grants of less than $50,000, and these small grants comprised just 27% of the center’s awards. To give you an idea of how stark the difference was, Georgia alone received 10 of the top 50 grants per capita, totaling $41 million, which is more than 10% of the $328 million CTCL spent on the entire country. Nine of those grants went to counties with an average partisan lean of 35 points in favor of Joe Biden.

In 2016, Donald Trump won Georgia by five points, but in 2020, following the massive infusion of Zuckerberg’s cash, he came up around 11,000 votes short of winning the state again.

On average, counties in Georgia that were funded by Zuck Bucks saw an increase in the Democratic share of the vote that was more than twice that of counties that did not receive any Zuck Bucks funding.

Similarly, what happened in Georgia played out in other swing states. For instance, the CTCL awarded a total of $10.1 million in grants in Wisconsin, but nearly $8.5 million of that went to just five cities of Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine – cities where Biden’s average margin of victory was over 37 points.15 Wisconsin was another state that Trump won in 2016 that he very narrowly lost in 2020.

Ultimately, Doyle and Oliver’s report concludes that “the distribution of the CTCL program’s grant amounts – both in absolute and per capita terms – shows, unequivocally, a systematic bias in favor of Democratic jurisdictions.”

And further, the larger grants that were awarded revealed a “partisan pattern of funding [that] was especially apparent in swing states.” Overall, a county that voted for Biden was over 3.5 times more likely to be funded by CTCL than a county Trump won. Trump counties received an average of $0.59 per capita in Zuck Buks, while Biden counties received $2.85 per capita.

The money given to local election offices was rarely spent on COVID-related issues. For instance, the three counties that received the most Zuck Buck funding spent only 1.3 percent of that funding on personal protective equipment. The bulk of the money was spent on items such as salaries, laptops, vehicle rentals, attorneys’ fees, mail-in balloting, and other measures that allowed elections offices to hire activists to work the election.

And CTCL leveraged Zuck Bucks to play a direct role in running elections in critical areas. In Green Bay, Wisconsin, emails to the mayor’s office from the center touted its “network of current and former election administrations and election experts available” and expertise in “vote by mail processes,” and promised they would “ensure forms, envelopes, and other materials are understood and completed correctly by voters.” Green Bay’s city government would eventually outsource critical election responsibilities to CTCL. In an email dated July of 2020, the chief of staff for Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich wrote, “As far as I’m concerned I am taking all of my cues from CTCL and work with those you recommend.”

CTCL eventually helped install an out-of-state operative named Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein in Green Bay and other Wisconsin election offices. Spitzer-Rubenstein engaged in questionable activities for someone who was not a public official, such as asking for direct access to the Milwaukee Election Commission’s voter database. Green Bay City Clerk Kris Teske took leave a few weeks before the election and quit shortly after. She cited Spitzer-Rubenstein assuming her responsibilities as one reason why. "[Green Bay Mayor Genrich] had [an] agenda when it came to the election and I nor the Clerk’s Office were included even though it’s the Clerk’s job to administer an election,” Teske wrote in an email. “He allowed staff who were not educated on election law to run the election, along with people who weren’t even City of Green Bay employees.”

Green Bay was not the only example of Democratic politicians abusing Zuck Bucks. Broad and Liberty, a publication dedicated to Pennsylvania politics, obtained emails showing that the office of Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf coordinated with left-wing nonprofits to implement a secretive process that selectively invited Democratic counties to apply for Zuck Bucks grants.

CTCL founder Tiana Epps-Johnson told the Washington Post in 2022 the awarding of Zuck Bucks grants “reflected where the requests for funding came from, not any bias on the part of her organization.” But the center has not been transparent about the internal process it used for awarding grants.

Since these abuses of nonpartisan government election offices were highlighted in the 2020 election, some 27 states have passed laws banning the private funding of elections.23 However, organizations on the Left are actively trying to circumvent these bans. Late last year, The Honest Elections Project highlighted the existence of a new $80 million organization, the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, designed to infiltrate local election offices and do it in a way specifically designed to get around bans on direct funding of election offices.

“County election offices that enroll in the [U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence] receive legal and political consultation, public relations assistance, and guidance on recruitment and training,” notes an article coauthored by Jason Snead of the Honest Elections Project and Andy Jackson of the Civitas Center for Public Integrity. “Once counties are enrolled, the Alliance gathers detailed information on the offices’ inner workings and provides specific ‘improvement plans’ to reshape the way they operate. In other words, the Alliance allows the left to have deep influence on election Administration.”

Some functions of government are so sacred they must not ever be overtaken by outside interests. Free and fair elections are a crucial aspect of our Constitutional republic. Wealthy and powerful
individuals messing with the integrity of our elections is a grave matter requiring careful oversight. When stated plainly, the issue here should be agreed upon by all Americans: The people counting our votes should not be partisans, and the counting of America’s votes should not be privately funded by activist billionaires.

Allowing the private takeover of government election offices undermines trust in government at the deepest levels. Everyone in Congress, regardless of party, should see this as the threat that it is and come together and put a stop to it.

<Source with footnotes>

Bottom line...

The three biggest sources of electoral fraud in 2020 were attributed to illegal election rule changes made possible by Chief Justice John Roberts'  Supreme Court which refused to hear a seminal case in Pennsylvania that should have affirmed that rule changes were limited to state legislatures and not functionaries and judges, mail-in voting without procedural checks and balances, vote harvesting, and, as we have seen, the interference of big-money interests in mostly Democrat precincts. 

If this is allowed to continue, we might as well welcome the Democrats as the single-party authoritarian controlling America without the "consent of the governed."

We are so screwed.

A HAGGARD, AGING, ANN COULTER STRUGGLES TO STAY RELEVANT

ANN-COULTER

As one who used to read Ann Coulter with anticipation, I am incredibly saddened to find that her outspoken sharp wit has morphed into the shrill anti-Trump rantings of a 62-year-old harpy bitch who is struggling to maintain relevance in this age of snapshots and soundbites—the very nature of today’s political discourse.

However, to suggest that the nation would benefit from the death of former president Donald Trump, given his multitude of domestic and foreign accomplishments, is beyond the pale and worthy of unconditional condemnation. Other than shock value, and it isn’t even that shocking given the former President’s treatment by the progressive communist democrats, it serves no purpose other than to bring media attention to this has-been pundit.

Unacceptable...

Ann Coulter: To Help Bring America Back, the Best Thing Trump Could Do Is Die

If there’s one thing Ann Coulter is good at, it’s being vocal.

Still, no matter what you think of former President Trump, you have to admit that Miss Coulter crossed a line when she suggested on Twitter/X that the best thing Donald Trump could do for the country is “die.” Yes, really. <Source>

Ac-td

Now is now, then was then…

Let us not forget that Ann Coulter wrote the September 2016 New York Times bestseller, Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! By the end of Trump’s presidency on January 20, 2021, Coulter had flipped her opinion of Trump, stating, “Trump betrayed his own supporters at every turn ... I hate him. He’s a betrayer.”

Coulter was trash-talking about Trump and his family in the Daily Beast, a progressive communist democrat rag owned by uber-Democrat billionaire Barry Diller’s IAC.

Ann Coulter Blames’ Gigantic Pussy’ Trump for MAGA Riots: ‘I Hate Him’

“We finally got the authoritarian liberals have been talking about,” the right-wing firebrand told The Daily Beast. “And I want to point out what a gigantic pussy he is. Who are these people still supporting Trump and this nonsense ‘stop the steal’? I don’t understand why. Why are you doing this for Trump when he doesn’t give a crap about you? These poor, working-class Americans, hanging on by their fingernails! No, he didn’t have time for them. He was too busy talking to Bob Woodward.”

Coulter went on: “He held a rally and he encouraged them to march on the Capitol while he goes back to the White House to have a nice lunch because he’s a gigantic pussy. He always has other people doing his dirty work. He was this tough guy on The Apprentice. He couldn’t even fire his own attorney general. He sent Corey Lewandowski to do it. He just trash-tweets Jeff Sessions on Twitter. Oooohh what a big man!”

Coulter sputtered with rage as she vented about the soon-to-be ex-president. “I hate him,” she seethed.

“Trump betrayed his own supporters at every turn,” Coulter added. “He turned over his presidency to Idiot Boy Jared. Who is still supporting this guy? So now we see. And he tells them, ‘yeah go march on the Capitol,’ and then he goes back to the White House, gets in bed and starts tweeting.” <Source>

Bottom line…

It is time for the anti-Trump faction to get over their angst and help protect America from the progressive communist democrats who are hoping for the division to split the vote in favor of the Democrats.

We are so screwed.

Bottom line…

While Republicans can not remedy all of our problems, they were created by the progressive communist democrats.

THE DEMOCRAT'S GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD STILL WORKS

PELOSI-JAIL

What do Hunter Biden and Paul Pelosi, Jr. have in common?

The answer is simple: both are sons of powerful progressive communist Democrats and enjoy tremendous deference from federal government law enforcement agencies that are directly impacted by the decisions made by these powerful politicians. So, it would seem natural that the sons of these politicians are exempt from the consequences of their actions that would see ordinary citizens without such connections in prison.

So why am I not surprised when this appears in the Daily Mail, a British daily middle-market tabloid newspaper that does a better job covering the U.S. than the legacy media in our country?

New-Daily-Mail-logoCrest-3279x567px

Nancy Pelosi's son Paul Pelosi Jr. dodges federal charges for the SEVENTH time after being linked to money laundering and mail fraud scheme involving a San Francisco Flop house

Two fraudsters linked to Nancy Pelosi's son are set to be sentenced over a money laundering and mail fraud scheme, DailyMail.com can reveal.

It is the seventh federal case that Paul Pelosi Jr., the 55-year-old son of the former House Speaker, has been embroiled in, documented in an extensive investigation by DailyMail.com.

The charges leveled by federal prosecutors against fraudsters Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez, include shady dealings over a San Francisco flop house that Pelosi Jr. claimed to own.

Garlock and Rodriguez have cut a plea deal and are scheduled to be sentenced in March.

The latest law enforcement bust on the real estate dealers linked to Pelosi Jr. has led financial crime experts to question why Nancy's son avoided indictment himself – even after he was identified by documents reviewed by DailyMail.com as paying bribes to get building permits on his Mission District flop house. <Source>


Smoking gun documents tie Nancy Pelosi's son to fraud and bribery scheme to remove permit violations against squalid San Francisco flop house owned by his ex-girlfriend and probed by the FBI

Nancy Pelosi's son listed himself as the owner of a flop house tied to a fraud and bribery scheme prosecuted by the FBI, in documents newly unearthed by DailyMail.com.

In the documents, Paul Pelosi Jr. signed statements that he was the property owner, 'the party legally and financially responsible for this proposed construction activity' and agreed to 'abide by all applicable laws and requirements that govern Owner-Builders as well as employers.'

And they even show Pelosi Jr., 53, applying for one of the very same permits that building inspector Bernie Curran and 'permits expeditor' Rodrigo Santos have been indicted for.

The Department of Building Inspection (DBI) form, signed by Pelosi Jr. and dated December 7, 2017, is a 'smoking gun' that evidences the House Speaker's son's close links to the high-profile public corruption criminal case.

[OCS: It gets stranger still…]

As well as tying Pelosi Jr. to an alleged criminal scheme, the December 2017 DBI form also raises serious questions over how he came to own, or own a share of, the multi-million-dollar building.

[Karena] Feng, who was previously in a romantic relationship with Pelosi Jr., sued him in 2019 claiming he conspired with a now-convicted lawyer and fraudulent realtor to steal the property from her.

Pelosi Jr. and the other defendants denied the claims, Feng's case was dismissed in 2020 on technical grounds, and she has not refiled.

Pelosi Jr. was recorded as the listing agent on a 2015 contract in which Feng sold the property for $4million, though she claimed her signature on it was forged.

He was also listed as chief financial officer of Feng RE Inc, Feng's company which held the flop house, in 2015.  <Source>

[OCS: About Karena Feng -- Karena Apple Feng (冯道芬) is a Real Estate and political consultant campaigning for the U.S. Representative for California’s 9th congressional district since 2021. Karena first campaigned for Diane Feinstein when she was mayor of San Francisco in the 80’s; campaigned for supervisor Aaron Peskin of San Francisco in 2015; campaigned for Mayor London Breed of San Francisco in 2019; just to name a few. Karena currently is Chairwoman of Torres Presidential Campaign Committee 2024. <Source>]

Bottom line…

Let us remember that under American jurisprudence, such as it is in the age of progressive communist democrats, everybody is presumed innocent until they are found guilty in a court of law—that is, except for Donald Trump, who is presumed guilty before any trial.

The fallback defense to any criminal allegations can be found in the participants' relative power structure and the transaction's complexity.

Our Constitution and the Rule of Law are rapidly eroding under the progressive communist democrats, especially here in California.

We are so screwed.

COMMUNIST ATTACK: PICTURES SAY IT ALL...

ILLEGAL-ALIEN Illegal-alien-biden BIDEN-MAD-AD-HELL CHI-MAYOR

Bottom line...

What we are witnessing is the inversion of society, where up is down, black is white, truth is false, and where government institutions that were meant to protect "We the People" are attacking "We the People."

The old communist ploy of attacking from both sides, the elites and the poor, and destroying the middle class.

"The middle class made the dream of liberty a possibility, set limits on the government, fought for its constitutions, removed much of governmental privilege and tyranny, demanded that rulers obey the just laws as closely as the people, and enforced a general civic morality." -- Taylor Caldwell, “The Middle Class Must Not Die,”

There is no other explanation.  This is not a culture war, but a continuation of the communist cold war--aided and abetted by corrupt politicians who can be bought for the proverbial thirteen pieces of silver.

We are suffering from an inversion of reality, where the progressive communist democrats project their own behavior onto the non-existent MAGA Republican menace that exists mainly in the minds of media manipulators and propagandists.

We are so screwed.

LIAR, LEAKER, PERJURER ADAM SCHIFF POSTS CAMPAIGN AD

SCHIFF-TRUST-ME

Once again, a progressive communist democrat liar, leaker, perjurer, and evidence fabricator Adam Schiff is running for high office--this time as California's junior senator.

There is no doubt that he was a disaster in the House of Representatives as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's favorite stooge who stage-managed the phony impeachments of President Donald Trump.

Here is what this shit-weasel had to say...  

Simply put, Steve Garvey is way too conservative for California.

[OCS: Precisely what we need in California to turn the tide of communism.]

He voted for Trump. Twice. And on the debate stage last month, it was clear he may support him again. Even after he incited an insurrection.

[OCS: Trump has done more for this nation as the president than the mush-headed Obama sock puppet who is being manipulated by a cadre of Obama's acolytes.]

He’s also supported far-right conservatives who are trying to take away our rights and freedoms – including the right to an abortion.

[OCS: Pure projection: It is the progressive communist democrats who are destroying our freedoms in California with the absurd, nonsencical rules that rely on politics, not science.]

He called me a liar in the debate and then again on Fox News because of my work to hold Donald Trump accountable for his crimes.

[OCS: Schiff is a proven liar and the crimes he mentions are ginned-up by Schiff and his cadre of progressive communist democrats.]

Stephen, Steve Garvey doesn't share California values.

[OCS: Right! Steve Garvey does not share California's current single-party communist views and is running to restore decency and prosperity to California.]

I’m running for Senate to secure more funding for affordable housing, to fight for access to health care and lower prescription drug costs, and to continue defending our democracy from those trying to dismantle our institutions.

[OCS: Mostly to divert California's taxpayer resources to illegal aliens who are sucking our healthcare, educational, and crime-fighting resources dry.]

Republicans are preparing to turn out in massive numbers for California’s GOP presidential primary on the same day as my election — and they are likely to give Garvey a strong showing.

[OCS: The fight is over easily-manipulated mail-in ballot vote harvesting, not turn out on election day.]

With your help, however, we can turn out more Democrats and keep our campaign moving forward.

[OCS: Moving forward toward California Communism.]

Thank you,

Adam

Bottom line...

By his own admission, Adam Schiff has contributed to the invasion of California by illegal aliens and the continuing decay of our infrastructure and institutions that created this formerly Golden State. 

The world was on fire, and yet, Adam Shiff, as the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, spent most of his time pursuing, prosecuting, and persecuting President Trump based on a Hillary Clinton Hoax.

It is time for a more common sense conservative approach that will retard the progressive communist democrat agenda and restore some semblance of decency in this state. No more attacks on the middle class while celebrating criminals.

A vote for Adam Schiff is a vote for communism and one-party rule in the United States.

Remember, Schiff lives in Maryland full-time, not in California he purports to represent.

CAN MICHELLE OBAMA BE THE 2024 BLACK SWAN EVENT?

Bs-obama

It is intuitively evident that Joe Biden, in addition to being corrupt,  a congenital liar, and a self-centered narcissist, is also, and more importantly, unfit to remain as the President of the United States.

Hence, some progressive communist democrats and wine-swilling white college-educated middle-aged women see the former First Lady Michell Obama as a viable candidate—mainly as she fulfills the intersectionality criteria of a black woman.

However, this scenario remains a black swan event because Obama herself has been quoted as saying, “I’ve never had the passion for politics. I just happened to be married to somebody who has the passion for politics, and he drug me kicking and screaming into the arena.” She is rumored to be lazy, intensely private, and unwilling to cede her current standard of living for the scrutiny and discomfort of public life.

Additionally, she has her own negatives…

  1. Lack of Political Experience: Michelle Obama lacks the traditional political experience typically associated with presidential candidates. While she served as the First Lady for eight years, her background is not in elected office or policymaking.

  2. Polarizing Figure: Michelle Obama has both supporters and detractors. Her policies and positions are most likely to be as divisive as her husband’s, and her candidacy might attract strong opposition from those who disagree with her Marxist worldview.

  3. Connections to Previous Administration: Her Presidency could continue corrupt and scandalous policies that are controversial or unpopular with many population segments.

  4. Potential for Heightened Scrutiny: Michelle Obama’s status as a former First Lady means she has already been subject to significant public scrutiny. However, such scrutiny would likely intensify, and her actions and statements while in the White House could increase criticism. Stories about her imperious, demanding behavior and disdain for White House staffers and the Secret Service would undoubtedly leak into the mainstream.

  5. Transition from Non-partisan to Partisan Role: Her ability to transition from a backgrounder to a more explicit partisan one as a presidential candidate is likely to be off-putting to those who previously held her in high regard.

  6. Questions about Leadership Style: Many question Michelle Obama’s leadership style and her mistreatment of her White House staff.

Bottom line…

California Governor Gavin Newsom is a more likely candidate as he ignores his constituents in California and gallivants around the nation voguing in artificially staged presidential poses.

We are so screwed if a progressive communist democrat assumes the Presidency in 2024.

AS I SEE IT: ONE CITIZEN SPEAKING'S EXPLAINER

Who can support this corrupt, mentally deficient fool for the Presidency of the United States...

BIDEN-PROJECTION

Let’s start from a realistic point of view: Patriotism and love for our nation alone no longer motivate the elites to do the right thing. Politics has become the art of corruption, and politicians have become professional grifters and hucksters.

While one party, the progressive communist democrats, derives from the practices of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK and is becoming increasingly authoritarian, the other party offers mild pushback as they enjoy their portion of the political spoils.

If you want to open your eyes to the truth, you must understand projection, where one party points to their opposition and accuses them of the very behavior they practice.

Consider the following example. The progressive communist democrats are calling the GOP and former President Donald Trump fascists. Now consider the definition of fascism: a political system where the government works with captive corporations to create a regimented, authoritarian society tightly controlled by a self-appointed elites who become increasingly corrupt and despotic as they struggle to keep their power in the face of revolutionary dissidents. Check your history, I’ll wait. Look closely and you can see this very situation playing out in the current Biden regime.

Much of our law-making panders to special interests that fund political campaigns, provide media attention and encourage voter participation and support.

The Democrat Party is not cohesive and is built on factions and socialist class identity warfare. They require a permanent underclass of victims to gain or maintain power.

The current Administration treats illegal aliens as super-citizens and citizens like criminals.

To say we are screwed is an understatement.

So why can’t we fix it?

Sorry to say, there are millions of low-energy, apathetic voters who take the viewpoint of their preferred information sources, including the ill-informed opinions of their clueless friends, as gospel. They don’t want the discord and disruptions that come from political pushback. They are not willing to risk their jobs, social approval, and friends to stand up for America—so it goes on, leaving it to someone else to right the wrongs.

Bottom line…

Pogo

We are the problem, and we are screwed.

PROGRESSIVE WALL STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL BOARD DEFENDS MAYORKAS

Immigration and inflation are the two most important issues before the public…

DHS

Secretary Mayorkas Delivers Remarks at Eagle Pass, Texas Press Conference (January 8, 2024)

Some have accused DHS of not enforcing our nation’s laws. This could not be further from the truth. Having begun my public service career as a federal prosecutor for 12 years, ultimately serving as the United States Attorney, there is nothing I take more seriously than our responsibility to uphold the law, and the men and women of DHS are working around the clock to do so.

[OCS: This appears to be another bald-faced lie. Similar to the lies Mayorkas had told Congress and repeated in a televised interview with ABC’s Martha Raddatz when he stated, “The border is closed, the border is secure.” Both documentary evidence and sworn testimony negates much of what Secretary Mayorkas has told Congress and the media.] 

The individuals who have been returned to their countries of origin certainly know this. After the ending of Title 42 in May, through the end of the fiscal year, DHS removed or returned more noncitizens without a basis to remain in the United States than in any other five-month period in the last ten years. In fact, the majority of all Southwest Border migrant encounters throughout this Administration have been removed, returned, or expelled – the majority of them. We are doing everything we can, within a broken system, to incentivize noncitizens to use lawful pathways, to impose consequences on those who do not, and to reduce irregular migration.

[OCS: More lies. The Biden Administration has funded NGOs to act as the Welcome Wagon for arriving illegal immigrants who have claimed asylum even though they traveled through countries that eliminated any immediate risk from the regimes in their own countries.]

We will continue to do everything we can, and we will continue to enforce the law, but we need Congress to make the legislative changes and provide the funding that our frontline officers so desperately need.

[OCS: President Biden dismantled a working immigration system using Executive Orders and side-stepped Congress. The President has all the power he needs and does not require additional legislation to enforce the current federal immigration laws. Biden can, with the stroke of a pen, restore Trump's sensible immigration policies.

It appears that additional funding would be directed at administrative rather than enforcement activities—providing a faster and easier path for illegal aliens to enter the United States, be processed, provided temporary assistance, and be relocated all through the nation without additional vetting, medical exams, or location tracking.]

What is remarkable is that, through it all, the brave men and women of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and their partners in the Department of Homeland Security, have and will continue to put on their uniforms, don their badges, and work at great risk to themselves in the service of their mission – to keep us and our country safe and secure.

[OCS: There is no mention of the number of Border Patrol agents who have been transferred from enforcement to administrative duties, including chauffeuring illegal aliens to medical appointments or caring for small children.]  <Source: DHS>

The Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal often sounds like progressive communist democrats…

Opinion_header-digital-v2Impeaching Mayorkas Achieves Nothing

A policy dispute doesn’t qualify as a high crime and misdemeanor.

WSJ Opinion: Should Secretary Mayorkas Be Impeached?

The Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday began marking up two articles of impeachment against Mr. Mayorkas—one for breach of trust and the other for “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law.” The articles say these are “high crimes and misdemeanors” that justify removal from office.

The 20-page political indictment certainly is a sorry list of policy failings on Mr. Mayorkas’s watch and their damaging consequences for American cities and states. These include the entry of migrants on the terrorism watch list, and an increase in average encounters at the border from 590,000 in fiscal years 2017-2020—to 1.4 million in 2021, 2.3 million in 2022 and 2.4 million in 2023.

[OCS: These are not “a sorry list of policy failings on Mr. Mayorkas’s watch,” but a knowing, willful violation of the federal immigration laws and a violation of his oath of office to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”] 

These are failures of policy and execution, but are they impeachable offenses? That seems doubtful. The first article cites Mr. Mayorkas for refusing to implement a law that requires detention of aliens. It says his policy of “catch and release” is impeachable.

[OCS: Mayorkas’s failure to follow federal immigration law has resulted in material harm to the United States of America, violated our constitutional sovereignty, and adversely impacted the safety and security of the United States by rendering it vulnerable to criminals and terrorists.]

Yet the Supreme Court has not ruled that the Biden policies are illegal. The High Court in 2022 let the Biden Administration end Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy, and last year it ruled 8-1 that states don’t necessarily have standing to challenge the federal government’s enforcement priorities.

[OCS: You do not have to have a legal predicate to impeach; witness the precedent set by the progressive communist democrats when they impeached Donald Trump—twice. The Supreme Court plays no constitutional role in an impeachment proceeding.

Do these people understand that impeachment is not a criminal proceeding, subject to any federal legal requirements, but a political one subject only to the existing rules of Congress? ]

As for catch and release, one problem is the statutory “credible fear” standard for claiming asylum in the U.S. The standard is too low, but it isn’t clear under the law that the Administration can legally deport people claiming asylum before they get a hearing. The U.S. lacks the facilities to hold asylum claimants, so they are released to await their hearing—and that can take years. But the problem is asylum law, as Republicans have long argued.

Article I also claims Mr. Mayorkas has violated the law by expanding humanitarian parole beyond Congress’s intent. That’s probably true, but the law puts no cap on parole numbers. Texas and other states challenged the President’s authority to use parole for large classes of migrants, but the Supreme Court ruled against them.

House Republicans dislike how the Administration is interpreting immigration law. But Congress has failed to reform asylum standards or humanitarian parole, or to otherwise tighten immigration rules. That’s why Senators are now negotiating over language to reform both the asylum standard and parole.

[OCS: Democrats are negotiating with Republicans only to show enough bipartisanship to remove immigration as a GOP election talking point.]

If Congress holds Mr. Mayorkas impeachable for policy failure, what’s the limiting principle? Are his deputies also guilty of “high crimes” for implementing the Biden immigration agenda? Career officials? How many GOP cabinet secretaries will the next Democratic House line up to impeach? Policy disputes are for the voting booth, not impeachment.

All the more so because the main architect of the border-security fiasco isn’t Mr. Mayorkas. It’s his boss, President Biden. “If you want to flee and you are fleeing oppression, you should come,” said Candidate Joe Biden in a 2019 debate. Mr. Mayorkas is following White House orders.

Impeaching Mr. Mayorkas won’t affect policy or even the politics of border security. Most voters don’t know who he is. Even if the House passes the articles on a largely partisan vote, there is no chance the Democratic Senate will convict him. Impeaching Mr. Mayorkas would be the political equivalent of a no-confidence vote. This would continue Congress’s recent trend of defining impeachment down.

[OCS: It will serve to check the activities of the progressive communist democrats who believe that they are sheltered from accountability by the legacy media, including the Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Board.

As for a Senate conviction, let those Democrats standing for re-election ratify the material harm caused to the United States and be held accountable for their acquiescence of an invasion.]

Grandstanding is easier than governing, and Republicans have to decide whether to accomplish anything other than impeaching Democrats. Mr. Mayorkas is an easy political target, but impeaching him accomplishes nothing beyond political symbolism.

[OCS: It is time to do to the progressive communist democrats what they have done to Republicans—as a lesson in political accountability.]

A better idea is to strike a deal with Mr. Biden on serious border-security reforms that would restrict his discretion on parole, rewrite the asylum standard, and give the executive other tools to control the border. If Messrs. Mayorkas and Biden refuse to use them, the GOP will have an election issue. And the tools will be there for the next President to use.

[OCS: Once again, the Editorial Board is asking for surrender to the progressive communist democrats, their replacement project, and their increasing dictatorial authoritarianism.]

Bottom line…

Both the Obama and Biden Administrations have incentivized illegal aliens who continue to abuse our asylum laws and dissipate our healthcare, educational, and social safety nets while maintaining allegiance to their nation of origin.

Congress is also at fault for failing to write laws to control immigration.

We are so screwed.

DISASTER: BIDEN APPOINTS A DANGEROUS POLITICAL OPERATIVE TO REPLACE JOHN KERRY

In the intricate dark web of politics, where power and influence intersect, appointing corrupt individuals to high office carries immense significance.

So it is hugely disconcerting that a corrupt dark-money political operative like John Podesta is ascending to a position of authority in the corrupt Obama-directed Administration, casting shadows over the very essence of democratic governance. Can the erosion of public trust and the urgent need for transparency and accountability in our political institutions be more critical?

Statement from National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on John Podesta
January 31, 2024

From Day One, President Biden defined the climate crisis as the existential threat of our time that required a global effort to put the world on a safer climate trajectory.  In his time as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, Secretary Kerry  — with characteristic passion, diplomatic acumen, and tireless focus — ensured that the United States not only rejoined that effort but once again led it.

President Biden’s appointment of John Podesta to continue to lead our global climate efforts demonstrates the President’s steadfast commitment to tackling the climate crisis – and reflects his belief that we have not a moment to lose.  John has played–and will continue to play—a lead role in restoring U.S. domestic leadership on climate, including leading the Administration’s implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, the single largest investment to tackle climate change in history. 

John is a key architect of turning President Biden’s bold vision – that tackling the climate crisis also represents the single biggest economic opportunity of our time – into a reality here at home.  These efforts have not only put the United States in a strong position to achieve our climate goals, but have also unleashed a clean manufacturing boom that has inspired a domestic and global resurgence in clean energy investment and good-paying jobs. 

As he assumes his new role, John will bring both a deep understanding – and a proven model – for how countries around the world can enhance their ambition while unlocking a new era of clean, inclusive, and resilient economic growth. 

John’s efforts and experience will be critical as countries around the world develop their next round of enhanced emissions targets, which are due early next year, as well as work to build out the global clean energy supply chains necessary for achieving our shared climate goals. <Source>

Déjà vu: from October 2022… 

Jdw-logoJohn Podesta: The Scandal Master Returns

Students of scandal took note last month when President Biden announced the appointment of one of the dirtiest figures in presidential politics as his clean energy czar. John Podesta, the White House said, would step in as “Senior Adviser to the President for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation,” overseeing the new Inflation Reduction Act’s “expansive” energy and climate provisions. Expansive it is. Podesta is now in charge of a $370 billion pot of federal cash and incentives approved under the new law. History suggests he will not be shy in deploying the federal funds to reward Democratic Party allies, punish opponents, and protect Joe Biden.

Protecting his president has always been John Podesta’s real job. As far back as the Bill Clinton presidency, Podesta ran the cover-up of the “Travel Office affair”—a failed attempt by Hillary Clinton to fire the staff of the White House Travel Office and replace them with Clinton cronies. This was serious business. The Travel Office staff were mid-level federal employees, not presidential appointees, and livelihoods were immediately cut off. Thanks to Mrs. Clinton, the director the Travel Office was indicted on embezzlement charges and left to twist in the wind for more than two years, until a jury swiftly acquitted him of all charges. A Podesta-led White House review of the affair “proved to be nothing more than a whitewash,” a later investigation concluded. Mrs. Clinton denied having anything to do with the firings but an independent counsel report on the Travel Office affair concluded she had provided “factually false” testimony in the case.

Podesta had demonstrated loyalty and was rewarded. He was promoted to deputy White House chief of staff, where he played important roles in the Whitewater scandal. A White House “task list” noted the “Podesta damage control effort” in Whitewater. In 1998, he was named chief of staff and helped manage the Clinton defense in the Monica Lewinsky debacle, impeachment, and a scandal over presidential pardons.

John Podesta prospered too. In 2003, with the Democrats out of the White House, he cemented his position as a leading party figure by founding the influential Center for American Progress, a Washington think tank that quickly became an incubator for progressive politics and personnel. He returned to the White House in 2014 as a counselor to Barack Obama for energy and environmental issues.

In 2016, he signed on as chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. When Wikileaks released over 20,000 Podesta emails obtained from hackers who had penetrated the Democratic National Committee mail system, Podesta was revealed as the central figure in a seamy web of media allies, political operatives, big money donors, Wall Street figures, and Clinton Foundation interests. With the Wikileaks email scandal, the Washington Post noted, “the Clintons’ longtime cleanup guy” was now “the source of the mess.”

Mrs. Clinton of course lost that election. But Podesta was soon back, this time playing a key role in “the Transition Integrity Project”—an effort to aid Joe Biden and disrupt the 2020 presidential election. “The figure at the heart of the Transition Integrity Project is John Podesta,” Judicial Watch reported in October 2020, a month before the election. TIP “is a collection of professional Democratic operatives and Republican ‘Never Trumpers,’” JW noted. “Organizers and leaders include Georgetown law professor Rosa Brooks, Nils Gilman of the ‘independent’ Berggruen Institute in California,” and anti-Trump Republicans Michael Steele, David Frum, and Bill Kristol.” <Source>

Bottom line...

The appointment of a corrupt political operative to a position of authority raises serious concerns about the integrity of the progressive communist democrats, the Obama/Biden Administration, and the deep state operatives who fear exposure in a Trump Administration.

We have an extremely limited timeframe to object to the continuing political corruption and the inflation and invasion driving the downfall of America.

We are so screwed.

ILHAN OMAR: UNREGISTERED FOREIGN AGENT ACTING ON BEHALF OF SOMALIA?

Omar-ufa

Just when you thought the despicable anti-America, anti-White, anti-Semite, Mogadishu, Somalia-born Ilhan Omar couldn’t do anything worse than allegedly commit immigration fraud by marrying her brother, tax evasion by filing joint tax returns with one man while being legally married to another, using the Communist Chinese spy application TikTok for official government communications, she announces that her allegiance is not to the Constitution, our nation, or her constituency, but to Somalia and Somalis.

DeSantis calls for denaturalization and deportation...

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called for Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar to be deported from the United States on Tuesday after footage showed Omar delivering a Somali-language speech to a gathering of community leaders at a Minneapolis hotel Saturday night where she called herself “Somali First” and vowed to protect Somalian interest as long as she is a member in the U.S. Congress. <Source>

Desantis-omar

Everything wrong with American immigration system... 

Rep. Ilhan Omar Represents Everything Wrong With America’s Immigration System

There’s a clip going around of Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar talking to a group of Somalians about her allegiances and priorities as a U.S. congresswoman. What Omar says is instructive, not just about her general worldview but mostly (and more importantly) about how backward and destructive our immigration system is.

Omar is a woman of the left, but her speech over the weekend was pure blood-and-soil nationalism — for Somalia, not America.

She tells them she’s a Somalian first and a Muslim second. She doesn’t even mention the United States or her citizenship here. She promises to use her power and influence in Congress to protect her nation’s interests. (Again, that nation being Somalia, not America.)

Speaking in Somali, Omar tells the cheering crowd that her “top priority” is to expand Somalia’s territory. “As Somalis, one day we will go after our missing territories,” she says, referencing disputed regions in Kenya and Ethiopia.

She brags that the U.S. government “will only do what Somalians in the U.S. tell them to do. They will do what we want and nothing else. They must follow our orders, and that is how we will safeguard the interest of Somalia. We Somalians must have the confidence in ourselves that we call the shots in the U.S.”

In light of Omar’s candidness, it’s fair to ask: Why is she allowed to serve in Congress? Why is she even allowed to remain in the United States? Omar is an immigrant and a U.S. citizen, but clearly she is not an American. She appears to have no allegiance to her adopted country — a country that took her in, sheltered and protected her, provided a safe haven from the chaos and violence of her homeland, and elevated her to a position of power and influence. <Source>

Resign...

Emmer

Bottom line…

Not only is Omar a corrupt communist fraud, but she is un-American and deserves to be, at the very least, expelled from Congress. 

We are so screwed when we find progressive communist democrats whose allegiance is to a corrupt, hostile, foreign power!

WE ARE SCREWED UNLESS WE ELECT A DISRUPTER LIKE DONALD TRUMP

Our nation is in crisis...

Sad-george

What’s wrong with today’s progressive communist democrat politicians?

They appear incapable of comprehending that their actions have deeply damaged the nation. They are consumed with self-interests and have a complete and utter lack of consideration for their constituency--and an overly developed sense of entitlement. They have no moral compass, decency, concern, or shame for what they have done to our nation.

Even worse, what’s wrong with today’s republican politicians who purport to support our Constitution, our American exceptionalism, and above all, our freedom?

They appear unwilling to effectuate needed reforms to reverse our nation’s slide into authoritarianism and one-party rule. They may have slowed down the progressive communist democrat agenda but never brought it to a halt. They are content with the status quo as long as they maintain their cushy office, with its power, perks, privileges, and profits, and can bring home enough taxpayer money to satisfy the special interests who support them.

Can your vote actually make a difference?

Perhaps in local races, rarely in state races, and probably not nationally unless you reside in a swing state. If you haven’t noticed, the big money special interests control the political parties whose imprimatur is critical for any candidate for office--no matter how competent, well-educated, well-experienced, telegenic, and recognized the candidate might be.

Do “We the People” have a chance?

Who is going to hold your local and state government responsible for the repair, replacement, and build-out of our decaying and vulnerable infrastructure?

Who will point out that trading convenience and lower prices for safety and security compromises our nation, making it less resilient and unable to withstand attacks from internal and foreign agents?

Who is going to point out the thousands of military-age young men from foreign nations who are pouring into our country without being vetted and whose allegiance is to a hostile foreign nation?

Who is sounding the alarm as the corporatized and politicized legacy media and social media platforms censor anti-regime narratives and de-platform dissidents?

Bottom line…

As I currently see it, we have a singular opportunity.

Overwhelmingly elect a Republican House, Senate, and President—with the proviso that they will be voted out of office in the next election cycle if they do not propose single-issue bills written in understandable language and repeal or supersede any existing laws, rules, and regulations.

Why start with Republicans? Because, while they cannot quickly solve many of our most pressing problems, they are not as responsible for them as the progressive communist democrats.

To say we are screwed is an understatement. To say we will remain a Democratic Republic with a functioning Constitution is debatable. But, we must start somewhere—preferably by choosing a proven disrupter who loves America and has withstood everything, real or imagined, fair or foul, that the progressive communist democrats have thrown at him.

My vote is for Trump.

HERE COMES JON STEWART, AN UNFUNNY PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT

Jon Stewart’s “clown nose on—clown nose off” shtick…

STEWART-CLOWN

In his performance, liberal comedian Jon Stewart, criticized for intentionally distorting the news, defends his deliberate misrepresentation by asserting that he is merely a comedian satirizing the news (clown nose on) while maintaining a façade of accuracy in journalism for everything else (clown nose off).

Since much of the younger generation gets their news from such liberal-biased sources, deliberate distortions are accepted as gospel without any need for critical thinking or consideration.

Making the demise of America funny…

Truth be told, progressive communist democrat comedians like Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, John Oliver, Amber Ruffin, Trevor Noah, Taylor Tomlinson, Graham Norton, and Bill Maher – all employing multiple gag writers – are not funny, especially when ignoring the corrupt mush-headed poseur in the White House and his domestic and foreign policy failures while attacking former President Trump.

So liberal Americans, especially some of the older ones, are enthusiastically awaiting the return of Jon Stewart (aka Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz), who is now a 61-year-old retread whose failed Apple TV+ straight news commentary show, The Problem with Jon Stewart, was abysmally horrible and unwatchable.

In time for the 2024 election cycle…

There is little doubt that Jon Stewart will attempt to replay his former persona to use communist Saul Alinsky’s Radical Rule #5 to disparage the Trump candidacy while minimizing the corruption and incompetence of the Obama/Biden Administration.

5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage."

Will it work?

STEWART-2

If nothing else, the show promises to be more entertaining than most of those who purport to be comedians doing political comedy. And considering the younger generation’s inability to think critically in terms outside of oppressor/oppressed and a culture of victimhood, it might work. The redeeming factor might be that these fools might want to swill wine and smoke a doobie rather than vote.

Bottom line…

Jon Stewart is a shit-weasel who joined the cease-fire now crowd after Israel responded to the Hamas attack on October 7, killing 1,400 people and taking about 200 hostages. Either he is stupid, blind, or evil, perhaps all three when he cannot see the clear and present need to destroy Hamas, even though it might produce collateral damage among the Palestinians, where over 80% of the non-Hamas population celebrated the attack.

To say we are screwed is an understatement at this point.

PLAYING A POTENTIALLY DEADLY"WHAT IF" GAME

The commentariats are speculating on Trump’s Vice Presidential pick to win the general election. However, a much darker scenario must be discussed.

If Trump picks Haley as VP, he clinches the election, says pollster Mark Penn

Pollster Mark Penn predicted that if former President Donald Trump chooses fellow Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley to be his vice president, he would lock up the election.

Mr. Penn, publisher of the Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, told Politico that Mr. Trump would do well to overcome his disdain for his former U.S. ambassador.

“Trump has a problem, which is the Nikki Haley voter. …A large percentage of them are never Trump,” he said. “Does Trump have a way of consolidating them? It seems to me that Trump almost has to pick her as vice president. … He could do her, or he could do Tim Scott.”

Mr. Penn said the former South Carolina governor would help him get votes from Republican women, “and that would be the end of the election.”  <Source>

The conspiracy theorists have another viewpoint…

There is little doubt that our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been deeply and thoroughly corrupted by politics and deep state machinations on behalf of shadowy oligarchs and multinational interests.

There is also substantial evidence that candidate Nikki Haley is an “empty skirt” politician willing to say or do anything to gain power—even to the extent of representing globalists and the military-industrial complex.

So the question arises: if former President Donald Trump were to select Nikki Haley as his running mate and become the President of the United States, would he encounter a President John Kennedy scenario, leaving the establishment’s choice of President holding the levers of power?

Alternatively, if the scenario is advanced, could the Nikki Haley factor sway the election against a Trump victor?

Is the threat to Donald Trump's life credible...

According to Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service Agent on the presidential protection detail for Obama and Bush, former NYPD officer, media celebrity, and New York Times...

DB-T

Also according to Bongino, there may be something very wrong with the Secret Service, especially in regard to a potential coverup of a January 6 diversionary plot involving a pipe bomb located at the DNC at the time Kamala Harris was present. Bongino notes that former President Trump's Secret Service detail, managed by the White House, may be inadequate given the ongoing animosity ginned up by the Democrats and their media propagandists.

Bottom line…

We live in difficult and dangerous times, and black swan events, whether planned or by happenstance, can disrupt planned international and national activities.

We are so screwed.

ANTI-SEMITIC BARACK OBAMA WINS, GUTS THE ADL POWERHOUSE FIGHT AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM

In what universe does a man openly support a religion that is antithetical to his very existence, his human rights, his culture, and his nation?

Adl-greenblatt

Led by former White House Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation, whatever that might be, Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, has gutted the previously esteemed ADL and turned it into a pale imitation of the corrupt and partisan Southern Poverty Law Center.

Straying from its roots in protecting Jewry from hate attacks, the organization was expanded to protect the very Muslims that want to kill Jews and abolish the Jewish State of Israel and the LGBTQ+ community that overwhelmingly sides with the terrorist group HAMAS.

According to Oren Segal, vice president of the Center on Extremism with the Anti-Defamation League, “I mean, this is part of what we do at ADL. In order to fight antisemitism, you have to fight Islamophobia, racism, misogyny and other forms of hatred. And in order to fight those hatreds, you have to stand up against the antisemitism. Unfortunately, as the FBI has already indicated, is that synagogues and mosques are, in particular, vulnerable right now to potential attacks based on what we're seeing around the world. Our fight is often one that is together, even though much of the public discussion tries to divide us.”

Now, take aim at constitutional conservatives who are pointing out the fallacies and foibles of the progressive communist democrats…

ADL Alerts Law Enforcement to Matt Walsh, Chris Rufo, Libs of TikTok

The ADL, known for its historical focus on combating anti-Semitism, has expanded its attention to hate and extremism, working closely with law enforcement to provide intelligence, resources, and educational opportunities to address emerging extremist threats online and offline. Mirroring the efforts of the progressive communist democrats to suppress free speech that criticizes members of their coalition and their often perverted practices.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been identified as flagging “online amplifiers of LGBTQ+ hate” as extremists for examination by law enforcement, according to an email obtained by The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project. The email, sent to an intelligence analyst at the Washington State Fusion Center, emphasizes the ADL’s focus on scrutinizing viral dissenters against transgender ideology, including figures like Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire and Chris Rufo of The Manhattan Institute. The ADL accuses content opposing transgender ideology of being “dangerous” and “false,” linking it to real-world extremist activities, threats, and violence.

Mike Howell, the director of the Oversight Project, claims that organizations like the ADL play a key role in government weaponization by providing intellectual cover to target perceived enemies. The email, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, discusses the “extremist landscape,” highlighting threats of Islamic terrorism, rising white supremacist groups, and “online amplifiers of LGBTQ+ Hate” promoting false narratives and escalating harassment.

The ADL’s email corresponds to a blog post titled “Online Amplifiers of Anti-LGBTQ+ Extremism,” which specifically names social media accounts and media figures, including “Libs of TikTok,” Gays Against Groomers, The Daily Wire, and The Manhattan Institute. The ADL appears to be advocating for government action against these individuals, strengthening laws against online hate and consulting with law enforcement partners to address hate speech that incites violence.

It should be noted that “action by the government” under the Obama and Biden Administrations is tantamount to suppression of free speech and criminalizing the activities of dissenters who openly challenge the regime.

The ADL’s blog post accuses individuals like Matt Walsh and Chris Rufo of spreading false narratives and engaging in hate speech against LGBTQ+ communities. Walsh views the ADL’s tactics as a serious threat, expressing concern about potential fines and arrests for outspoken conservatives if the Biden administration wins re-election. Rufo labels the ADL’s efforts as an attempt to mobilize the government for political persecution, putting free speech at risk.

Matt Wash’s “crime” is pointing out the scientific fact that there are only men and women in this world, and while their are medical aberrations, one should not be forced by law to accept their delusions as fact and act accordingly. Accordingly, they point out the clear and present danger of surgically or chemically altering the bodies of young children at the behest of delusional adults and activists pursuing a political or self-interest agenda.

Chaya Raichik, associated with the social media account “Libs of TikTok,” criticizes the ADL for implying that criticizing someone or something equates to criminality. She argues that the ADL, by deciding who is an extremist, racist, or transphobic, influences corporations and sets the tone for societal norms.

The “Libs of TikTok” are notable because they take published video clips and quotes from progressive communist democrats and highlights them to demonstrate stupidity and malevolence.

The ADL, known for its historical focus on combating anti-Semitism, has expanded its attention to hate and extremism, working closely with law enforcement to provide intelligence, resources, and educational opportunities to address emerging extremist threats online and offline.

Read the full story at ADL Alerts Law Enforcement to Matt Walsh, Chris Rufo, Libs of TikTok.

Bottom line…

The ADL has adopted the rhetoric and agenda of the radical progressive communist democrats and has been neutralized as a force to fight anti-Semitism by the Obamacons.

We are so screwed.

HOW MANY BILLIONS WILL BIDEN OFFER TO BUY A PHOTO OP OF HAMAS RELEASING HOSTAGES?

After Iran and Afghanistan, I can’t help but wonder how much taxpayer money the Biden “negotiators” will offer to Hamas to secure the remaining hostages.

BIDEN-TERRORISTS

Here we go again…

CIA Director Burns helping broker another deal to release hostages from Hamas

CIA Director William Burns is helping President Biden with efforts toward a deal to release the remaining hostages held by the militant group Hamas in Gaza amid Israel’s ongoing war in the territory.

“He has been … involved in helping us with the hostage deal that was in place and trying to help us pursue another one,” White House national security spokesperson John Kirby told reporters Thursday.

Kirby said discussions about trying to get a renewed hostage deal have been “sober and serious” and noted that White House adviser Brett McGurk is currently in the Middle East working on a deal.

Burns, who was involved in the effort to secure the Hamas hostages in November, is expected to travel to Europe for talks with the Israelis and Egyptians, according to reporting from The Washington Post.

The CIA declined to comment when asked to confirm the director’s travel.

Burns traveled to Doha, Qatar, for the November deal, which led a weeklong pause in fighting during which Hamas released more than 100 hostages and Israel released more than 200 Palestinian prisoners. That deal took five weeks of intense negotiations between the White House, Qatar, Israel and Hamas.

For that deal, Burns in October began speaking regularly with director of Mossad, David Barnea, to whom Israel had delegated authority to negotiate.

The pause in fighting lasted from Nov. 24 to Dec. 1 [when Hamas broke the pause with continuing missile attacks and other terrorist operations within Israel.]

Hamas took almost 250 hostages during its Oct. 7 attack on Israel, which left about 1,200 Israelis dead. The first phase of the hostage deal was structured for women and children to be released and was considered at the time to include an expectation for future releases. <Source>


Biden to deploy CIA director to help broker major Gaza deal

William Burns is looking to close gaps between Israel and Hamas on a deal that includes the release of all hostages in Gaza and a two-month cease-fire

Israel’s latest proposal includes a 60-day pause in fighting in exchange for the phased release of the more than 100 captives, beginning with civilian women and children and followed by civilian men, military women and men, and the remains of those who have died since their abduction. Such a pause would allow Israel to continue fighting after the two-month lull in line with Netanyahu’s vow to achieve “total victory” by destroying Hamas.

The Israelis also have proposed that senior Hamas leaders agree to leave Gaza, but one official familiar with the negotiations said the idea was a nonstarter for the group and its military leaders, who are prepared to die as martyrs in the Palestinian enclave. Hamas also rebuffed Israel’s 60-day pause proposal, saying the next hostage release should involve a permanent cease-fire, the official said.

[HAMAS has broken every cease-fire they ever agreed to--their word is worthless.]

But multiple officials said negotiations on those key points remain active. <Source>

Bottom line…

The ideal deal for Hamas would see their leadership escape to friendlier nations with all of their money and a promise that Israel will not kill them. I am so cynical as to believe that Biden could put them in the witness protection program and give them a string of 7-11s somewhere in Minnesota.

We are so screwed when our corrupt CIA, the State Department, and the White House try to execute foreign policies. The question they never ask is always, “After that, then what?”

Will we ever know the terms of the real deal?

SCREW MEXICO IF IT TRIES TO BANKRUPT AMERICAN GUN MANUFACTURERS AND DISTRIBUTORS

UNCLE-SAM-PEN

The communists that run Mexico have gone too far with their bullshit.

Most of the military-grade arms used by the drug cartels are stolen military weapons or weapons trafficked by cartels operating in other countries. The average Mexican citizen is unable to possess weapons as the communist government wants a docile population unable to defend themselves from the government or the cartels that own the government.

Now they want to sue American gun manufacturers and the progressive communist democrats are willing to let them proceed.

U.S. appeals court rules Mexico can sue American gun manufacturers for "flood" of firearms across border

A U.S. appeals court ruled Monday that a $10 billion lawsuit filed by Mexico against American gun manufacturers can proceed

While Americans have spent decades complaining about Mexican cartels trafficking illegal firearms across the border into the United States, a recent ruling by an appellate court has turned the tides and shined a light on a growing problem for Mexican citizens.

A U.S. appeals court ruled Monday that a $10 billion lawsuit filed by Mexico against American gun manufacturers can proceed. The appellate court ruled that the Mexican lawsuit “plausibly alleges a type of claim that is statutorily exempt” from a 2005 law known as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, known as the PCLAA, which only covers lawful firearm sales.

Such protections are now codified under 15 U.S.C. Section 105.

The ruling overturns a lower federal court ruling in 2022 that dismissed the claims of the Mexican government, setting the stage for a possible final showdown that will either reach the U.S. Supreme Court or go to trial.

The case stems from claims argued by the Mexican government, which has insisted that the ‘”flood” of illegal firearms coming across the border is the result of “deliberate” business practices by American firearm manufacturers.

The American firearm industry's trade association has denied the Mexican government’s claims. Some of the firearm manufacturers named in the lawsuit are Barrett, Beretta, Glock, Ruger, and Smith & Wesson.

Mexico has accused those manufacturers of engaging in a practice that results in the trafficking of tens of thousands of gins across the border into Mexico, empowering drug cartels with weaponry to fight one another and kill innocent civilians and government agents.

The Mexican government has alleged that as many as half a million firearms illegally cross their border each year.

Despite strict gun control laws, the Latin American country plunged into violence with more than 30,000 people being murdered during the past year.

According to a report published by the BBC, the entire country only has “one gun shop, housed in a Mexico City military complex.”

The case, which started in 2021 was originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts where many firearm manufacturers are located. Mexico’s complaint alleges that those companies knew their product was being sold to traffickers in the country, and as a result was escalating violence.

The lawsuit was initially dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge F. Dennis Saylor who ruled that the gun manufacturers were shielded under the PLCAA because that law protects such companies from damages “resulting from the criminal or unlawful misuse” of their firearms.

Mexico has since argued in its appeal in the 1st Circuit that the PLCAA is only applicable to domestic harm caused in the United States and does not protect U.S. companies from liability in Mexico.

The appellate court ruled that the complaint “plausibly alleges a type of claim that is statutorily exempt” from the act because it only covers lawful gun sales and the lawsuit is focused on the effects of illegal gun trafficking.

Gun control advocates and Mexican Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena heralded the appellate court’s decision as “great news” on X, but gun manufacturers are saying the ruling is opening a flood gate to future lawsuits that could dangerously cross into the line of general enterprise liability for the gun industry.

“The Mexican government wins their appeal in U.S. court and is able to proceed with the lawsuit against U.S. gun companies for supplying weapons to cartels that fuels the bloodshed south of the border. An important legal step, but more court battles to come,” wrote Mexican journalist Ioan Grillo on X.

Lawyers for the firearms industry said the lawsuit was designed to unfairly blame American manufacturers for violence caused by Mexican cartels.

“Mexico should spend its time enforcing its own laws [and] bring Mexican criminals to justice in Mexican courtrooms, instead of scapegoating the firearm industry for their unwillingness to protect Mexican citizens,” tweeted National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) general counsel Larry Keane. <Source>

FINGER-FLAGBottom line…

The Mexican government, owned by the cartels, is a communist kleptocracy that needs a scapegoat someone to excuse the violence plaguing innocent Mexican citizens. Considering the number of knife and machete deaths in Mexico, perhaps they need to ban those also.

I say let’s hold Mexico responsible for the “migrants” traversing their borders to present themselves as illegal aliens in the United States. Let’s hold Mexico responsible for assistance provided to their citizens and take payment in commodities like oil.

Let the corrupt Mexican police do their jobs.

We are so screwed when we allow communist thugs to impact our economy, security, safety, and public welfare.

OBAMA/BIDEN DESTROYING AMERICA FROM WITHIN

Once again, the Obamacons in the Biden Administration are preparing to screw us royally.

BLEEDING-AMERICA-DRY

Crippling our economy…

Energy exploration, production, storage, distribution, and use are the lifeblood of any economy. Anything that impacts energy, especially decisions based on shoddy science or an adverse political agenda, is dangerous for the nation’s safety, security, and prosperity.

The progressive communist democrats deliberately create another clear and present danger that affects us all.

White House Said to Delay Decision on Enormous Natural Gas Export Terminal

The Biden administration is pausing a decision on whether to approve what would be the largest natural gas export terminal in the United States, a delay that could stretch past the November election and spell trouble for that project and 16 other proposed terminals, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.

The White House is directing the Energy Department to expand its evaluation of the project to consider its impact on climate change, as well as the economy and national security, said these people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss internal deliberations. The Energy Department has never rejected a proposed natural gas project because of its expected environmental impact.

The move comes as Mr. Biden gears up for what is likely to be a contentious re-election campaign. He is courting climate voters, particularly the young activists who helped him win election in 2020 and who have been angered by his administration’s approval last year of the Willow project, an enormous oil drilling operation in Alaska.

It also comes as the United States leads the world in both liquefied natural gas exports and oil and gas production. The country has seven export terminals with five more already under construction. <Source>

Destroying individual opportunities…

Undoubtedly, independent freelancers and the “gig economy” benefit individuals, for whatever reason, who face scheduling issues or require supplemental income.

New Biden Labor Dept. Rule Likely to Hurt Millions of Small Businesses, Independent Contractors

A new Biden administration Labor Department rule that significantly restricts the ability of businesses to hire contractors (also known as independent workers, freelancers or gig workers) will likely cripple small-business job creation.

Some 99% of American companies are small businesses, and 100% of businesses started out small, but a recently finalized rule from the Biden administration’s Labor Department will make it harder for small businesses to start, grow and succeed.

But a new Biden administration rule that significantly restricts the ability of businesses to hire contractors (also known as independent workers, freelancers or gig workers) will instead drive out small-business job creation.

Imagine a small landscaping company that has three employees and contracts with a half-dozen others for services, such as tree removal, stonework and lighting installation.

If the company owner had to treat those contract workers as formal employees, he would have to be in charge of, and liable for, the work they perform (even though he’s not an expert in, and does not supervise, their services); would have to restrict their hours; and provide various employee benefits and tax payments.

Under the Labor Department’s recently finalized rule that’s scheduled to take effect March 11, at least some of the factors specified in the rule would signal that these landscape service contractors should instead be treated as employees.

Since it’s unlikely that the owner could provide those contractors with enough work and because they likely want to have control over their work, the owner would likely have to cut ties with those contractors and stop offering their services.

But offering fewer services will make it harder to compete with bigger companies who have the scale and resources to employ specialized workers in-house.

In addition to constraints the rule will place on small businesses’ use of contractors, the rule is utterly confusing and ambiguous. While big businesses often have lawyers and “compensation, benefits, and job specialist analysts” to interpret the 106-page rule and try to determine the status of each of their employees and contractors, it will be far more difficult and costly for small businesses to attempt to understand and comply with the rule. <Source>

This is the progressive communist democrats catering to the communist unions that provide campaign funding, voter support, and election workers to the Democrat Party. The program mirrors a union-driven California law designed to unionize independent Uber and Lyft drivers and freelance healthcare workers who provide in-home services. The goal is to push independents into communist workers’ collectives that would charge dues to their membership for unspecified services.

Bottom line…

How much corruption, decay, destruction, and devastation can the Americans stand, especially as our country is being invaded by a horde of freeloaders, malcontents, and low-quality individuals who bring poverty, disease, and crime across the border?

We are so screwed.

U.S. MILITARY MORE INTERESTED IN WOKENESS THAN KILLING OUR ENEMIES

ArmedServices-MIA

I worry about the ability of our modern military to identify, isolate, and destroy our enemies to preserve the security and safety of the United States, its protectorates, and its allies—that is if we still have any allies that trust us after the Obama and Biden Administrations has decimated our military leadership and weakened our national resolve.

It appears to me that our corrupt political leadership has politicized our military’s leadership, and everybody who ranks colonel or above is suspected of pursuing their career objectives rather than maintaining mission readiness--failing to resist the type of social engineering that is rotting the military from within. A military where your race and sexual proclivities are evaluated above knowledge, experience, and above all, competence.

It appears to me that extremely expensive weapons have gamified warfighting and that our political leaders are sacrificing effectiveness by ordering precision-targeted strikes with expensive weaponry to minimize collateral damage. And, by damage, I mean damage to their personal careers, reputations, and political party, especially when facing an election cycle. These pussified fools are more afraid of a corrupt, communist-influenced media

It appears to me that our over-reliance on sophisticated technology is creating vulnerabilities and leaving us open to attacks involving foreign agents whom we enthusiastically embrace and who may obtain access to the encrypted keys to our digital fortress. And, whom we fail to punish, especially when they are gay or affiliated with progressive communist democrats--giving traitors and spies a slap on the wrist rather than the death penalty.

How do you explain this?

US Military Takes Out 3 Terrorists In Somalia Airstrike

U.S. forces conducted a targeted airstrike on a terrorist group in southern Somalia over the weekend, resulting in the death of three individuals identified as members of Al-Shabaab, according to officials.

The U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) stated that the airstrike was executed in a remote area approximately 22 miles northeast of Kismayo, Somalia, on January 21. The operation was conducted in response to a request from the Somali government, with the aim of neutralizing the threat posed by Al-Shabaab.

AFRICOM’s preliminary assessment indicates that the strike successfully eliminated three members of Al-Shabaab, and there were no reported injuries or casualties among civilians.

The statement emphasized the commitment of U.S. Africa Command, in collaboration with its partners, to take decisive action against Al-Shabaab, a notorious terrorist group affiliated with al-Qaeda. Kismayo, the location of the airstrike, is a port city situated 300 miles southwest of Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia.

Al-Shabaab has gained notoriety as the largest and most active al-Qaeda network globally, posing a significant threat not only to regional stability but also to U.S. security interests in the area. The group has previously targeted U.S. forces and continues to be a focal point for counter-terrorism efforts. <Source>

What the hell?

The cost per kill is outrageous, and the effectiveness of the strike is debatable other than serving as a progressive communist democrat public relations stunt.

Somalia is a lawless country with an ineffective government that should be isolated and not rewarded. According to Freedom House, “The government, which is not democratically elected, has little practical ability to implement its laws and policies even in parts of the country it controls.”

The pirates targeted a United States warship, no collaboration with our “partners” is necessary, nor is any “terrorist” associations required to strike those responsible.

We know where the Somali pirates live in their mansions, yet we refuse to bomb these areas. If our enemy leaders choose to live with their families and surround themselves with human shields, any death is on them and should not concern our leadership.

Rest in Peace...

And as for Iran and its proxies, destroy them too!

Seals

On the evening of January 11, 2024, Navy Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Christopher J. Chambers and Navy Special Warfare Operator 2nd Class Nathan Gage Ingram were reported missing at sea while conducting a night-time seizure of a vessel illegally transporting advanced weapons from Iran to Houthi forces in Yemen. The search has been canceled and they are presumed dead.

 Bottom line…

Once pirates attack any ship in international waters, the use of lethal force MUST be used. It is time to end this menace to shipping and our national interests.

Under the progressive communist democrats, things are ass-backwards as we protect our enemies and disadvantage our own combatants. This is wrong, stupid, and deadly.

The hippies of the sixties, then led by trained communists, have grown up and risen to positions of influential leadership, and have carried their hatred for our nation and its military into today’s complex and dangerous environment.

The old saying that “the enemy has a vote” has never been truer—especially with the progressive communist democrats now dominating U.S. politics.

You may be beyond military age, but you can still serve our nation by voting for those willing to stop the slow-moving invasion of the United States at our Southern border and to allow the military to execute its mission to kill our enemies and degrade their capabilities.

I fear that we are presently screwed and on the cusp of losing control of our nation if this progressive communist democrat nonsense is allowed to proceed.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: TRUMP WINS BIG, HALEY + DEMOCRATS LOSE BIGLEY!

A majority of voters in the New Hampshire Republican Primary are not Republicans AND WOULD NOT VOTE FOR HALEY IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.

NIKI

From the libs at the Editorial Board of the Wall Street Journal...

Nikki Haley Vows to Fight On After New Hampshire
She closed strong in the primary and revealed Trump’s November weaknesses.

The press came to New Hampshire to bury Nikki Haley, but it looks like they’ll have to put down the shovels for now. Donald Trump won the Republican primary comfortably in the Granite State, but the former South Carolina Governor came on strong enough to justify her decision to keep going forward and try to make a race of it.

To make it a race, Ms. Haley will have to toughen and expand her message. She has been reluctant to make a harder case against Mr. Trump lest she alienate people who voted for him twice. But now that it’s one-on-one she has to give Republicans reasons to favor her. <Source>

Bottom line...

Nikki Haley is an empty skirt and a bullshit artist--sounding like a Democrat talking about race, gender, and bumper-sticker politics.

She and her progressive communist democrat friends spent a reported $31 million on advertising in New Hampshire since the start of 2023--for a state with 1.4 million residents. 

We are so screwed.

NIKKI HALEY IS A MEDIA CREATION SPOUTING BUMPER STICKER SLOGANS

The establishment wing of the Republican party is willing to sell out our Constitution and Country as they go about their self-serving “business as usual” policies.

HALEY-ESTABLISHMENT

The Establishment has given us a string of losers like…

  • George H.W. Bush (1992)
  • Bob Dole (1996)
  • McCain (2008)
  • Romney (2012)

And now the establishmentarians give us another loser like Nikki Haley (2024), who is collaborating with the globalists and seeking support from progressive communist democrats in the primaries to injure former President Trump. Democrats who will hold their nose and vote for Haley in open primaries—and return to their progressive communist democrat roots in the general. Screwing everybody who thought she was a viable candidate.

Haley-rino

Proof...

Nikki Haley receives New Hampshire boost from Bill Kristol’s liberal dark money-funded group

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is getting a last-minute boost ahead of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday from a Bill Kristol-led group bankrolled by the largest Democratic dark money network in the United States, documents show. <Source>

The answer is obvious...

Trump-card

Bottom line…

Nikki Haley loves herself and her special interests more than she loves our country. She is worse than a RINO (Republican In Name Only), she has thrown in with the most radical communist democrats who want to fundamentally transform our nation and destroy capitalism from within. God only knows what she promised them -- money, positions of power in the Administration, or a complete surrender in foreign policy.

Haley is an open-border globalist who hates constitutional conservatives.

CONGRESSIONAL CRAZINESS: TED LIEU VOTES FOR DISEASE, PESTILENCE, AND DEATH

DEMORAT

Is there no end to the legislative craziness from California politicians in Congress?

In dire times, when we literally do not know who is running the White House and stage-managing our president, our nation is engaged in open conflict on several fronts, we are being financially decimated by inflation and increasing taxation, and we are being invaded by a never-ending horde of illegal aliens who are destroying our housing, jobs, healthcare, education, and social safety nets, progressive communist democrat legislators are wasting their time on nonsensical legislation designed to transform our nation into a third-world existence.

Who, in their right mind, would vote for rodent infestations that increase death and disease?

It appears that the Taiwan-born Ted Lieu, a graduate of the prestigious Stanford University (Computer Science, Political Science), a graduate of Georgetown Law  (Juris Doctor), and a retired Air Force JAG Colonel, is bat-shit crazy. This attorney, politician, and retired military officer is the Co-Chair of the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, and he prioritizes rats over the health and welfare of American citizens.

Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) introduced the Glue Trap Prohibition Act, a bill to criminalize the possession and use of glue traps to catch rodents and place a national ban on their possession and use.

Glue Trap Prohibition Act of 2024

The Congress finds the following:

(1) A glue trap, also known as a glue board or sticky board, is comprised of a layer of cardboard, plastic, or wood coated with a non-drying adhesive or a shallow tray of the adhesive. These traps, used by homeowners, food processors, and pest management companies to control rodent populations, work by ensnaring rodents or other small animals as they cross the device by having their feet and bodies stick to the adhesive. Unable to free themselves, especially as more parts of their bodies become stuck to the trap, the victims typically die from starvation, dehydration, or suffocation after several days. The process is extremely cruel and painful, and it subjects animals, whether the intended target or not, to a slow and inhumane death.

[OCS: Boo Effin’ Hoo! Sure beats Hantaviruses, a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents, and can cause varied disease syndromes, including hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), and other problems.]

(2) Glue traps may also trap or maim non-target wildlife, including protected species, and household pets who may subsequently require veterinary assistance and examination.

[OCS: Protected species are unlikely to be found inside one’s home, and household pets are prohibited from commercial food processors. People are also mindful of their pets and children when selecting and setting traps or employing other rodent control devices.]

(3) The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has cautioned against the use of glue traps, as trapped animals produce urine and feces that may harmfully affect human health.

[OCS: The same corrupt CDC that mismanaged the panic and lied to the world also recommends against the use of live traps that don’t harm the animal for the same reason.]

(4) Countries, cities, agencies, and businesses around the world have increasingly taken steps to limit or ban the sale or use of glue traps over animal welfare, health, and humane concerns.

[OCS: Those political entities, individuals, and organizations are likely to be affiliated with the radical communist environmentalists who favor animals over humans and are promoting zero- or no-growth policies to return “Mother Earth” to its natural state with less human impact on nature. Of course, they are all bat-shit crazies and have little or no regard for technology that allows man to adapt to harsh environments.]

<Source>

The “Glue Trap Prohibition Act of 2024” would amend federal pesticide regulations to ban the sale and use of glue traps—and criminalize its users with fines of up to $5,000 per offense for commercial violators and $1,000 fines for individuals. The legislation also allows for criminal penalties—including up to a year’s imprisonment for commercial violators and 30 days imprisonment for private persons who violate the law.

More central planning by communists…

Where does the U.S. Constitution confer any right to the federal government to dictate pest control? The Constitution was written to protect our inalienable rights and curtail the federal government's powers.

Bottom line…

This legislation should be defeated, and Ted Lieu should return to private life, absent a showing of harm to humans.

Shouldn’t Ted Lieu be more concerned about the Communist Chinese invading Taiwan and controlling the world supply of semiconductors that are critical for military, commercial, and medical applications?

Too bad we cannot trap and eliminate the progressive communist democrats in Congress. They would rather cage you than animals.

We are so screwed.

WILL CALIFORNIA SEND A COMMUNIST SYMPATHIZER TO THE SENATE?

The despicable liar, leaker, evidence manipulator, and progressive communist democrat Representative Adam Schiff is running to become California’s junior Senator. Schiff faces a field of twenty-six candidates, including prominent Democrats, Representatives Katie Porter and Barbara Lee, and Republican and former Los Angeles Dodger Steve Garvey.

2AS
California does not need a contemptible, obnoxious asshole like Adam Schiff or a communist sympathizer like Barbara Lee to represent Californians in the Senate. Schiff lives in Maryland year-round and only maintains a small condo in downtown Burbank, California, to prove residency.

LEE-CUBA

Rep. Barbara Lee Kicked Out of Committee Hearing for Spouting’ Communist Propaganda’

It was a routine meeting of the Western Hemisphere Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Chairwoman Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) was conducting a hearing on U.S. relations with Cuba when Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) interrupted the hearing to speak about her desire for the U.S. to reestablish relations with the island nation.

Salazar was having none of it. Lee is not a member of the Committee, and according to long-standing House rules, there would have to be a unanimous vote of Committee members to allow her to speak.

Today, I exercised my authority as Subcommittee Chairwoman to not allow an off-Committee Member to spread communist propaganda during my Cuba hearing,” Salazar wrote. “Members are not entitled to join any Committee proceedings without full consent of the Committee Members.”

“Barbara Lee tried to disrupt an important discussion about the Biden Administration’s lenient policies toward the Cuban regime,” Salazar continued. “Barbara Lee is a communist sympathizer who was a personal friend to Fidel Castro, has visited Cuba 21 times, and has been a mouthpiece for the Cuban Regime since 1977.”

A typical Democrat, Lee whined about having her viewpoint suppressed.

“She’s trying to silence me,” Lee said. “And what her move was today demonstrated [is] that she really doesn’t believe in democracy. She believes in only her point of view; she does not believe in the inclusion of different points of view when we talk about Cuban policy.”

As she was being asked to leave, Lee criticized Rep. Salazar for perpetuating the same authoritarian policies she criticized the Cuban government for. “I am an African American woman with a point of view,” said Rep. Lee. “We’re in a democracy those points of views are allowed. And you are doing exactly what you say the Cuban government is.”

[OCS: No surprise that racist Barbara Lee is playing the race card whenever she doesn’t get her way.]

Things went even further on social media. Rep. Salazar called the political veteran a “communist sympathizer” and accused her of being friends with Fidel Castro. Rep. Salazar also said that since Rep. Lee was not a member of the committee she had a right to kick her out for her “disruption.”

Lee was trying to advocate for a bill to help the Cuban private sector. The only problem, according to Cuban democracy advocates, is that a private sector in Cuba doesn’t exist. It’s a regime ploy.

It seems a little strange that Lee would try to crash the committee hearing at almost the same time that the Cuban regime began a media campaign in favor of what Lee was advocating. <Source>

Always the race card...

Barbara Lee Makes Wild Claim About Man Denying Her Entry Into Capitol Elevator and People Have Questions

On Thursday, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) appeared on CNN and was asked about Haley's remarks. 

After talking about what she called "institutional" and "systemic racism" in America, Lee told a story of something she says happened to her when she tried to enter the "members only" elevator in the Capitol building:

She went on to share a personal story about how she faced racism in the halls of Congress, when a white man stopped her from entering a members-only elevator as she was on her way to vote. At the time, Lee said, she was wearing her member’s pin, which identified her as a member of Congress. 

“He blocked me from getting into the elevator and told me I was not a member of Congress and it was for members only,” Lee said. “I said, ‘Sir, I’m a member of Congress.’ And I showed him my pin and he said, ‘Whose pin did you steal?’ This is an example of what personal racism is and how people of color constantly have to deal with this each and every day.”

Bottom line…

I support former Los Angeles Dodger Steve Garvey, a decent man who promises to do right by California and, most importantly, our faltering nation.

We are so screwed--more so by the Obama/Biden Administration, which promised to “fundamentally transform” our nation and is well on its way to destroying America from within.

Remember, the feckless Republicans may not solve all of our problems, but they are infinitely better than the progressive communist democrats who caused them.

BUDGETARY BILLSHIT: SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION

USCAPITOL

Yesterday, President Joe Biden signed another continuing resolution to fund the government through March, averting a weekend government shutdown.

Why was a continuing resolution necessary? Moreover, why a third stop-gap continuing resolution instead of the full FY24 budget? Are the dumb bastards in Congress unable to read a calendar? Alternatively, are they playing chicken with each other in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election?

And what about the Republican Party, which routinely promises fiscal responsibility, including a commitment to reducing our national debt, maintaining a stable currency, and eliminating misuse of funds or resources through waste, fraud, and abuse?

Folks, it’s all bullshit! Both political parties are guilty, as are all politicians.

Uncle-sam-dollars-BORDER

The system has become institutionally corrupt!

As long as we have professional politicians running for office rather than principled individuals attempting to make this nation and their community better, we will see the system corrupted by politicians pandering to the unions, corporations, and other favor-seeking special interests that fund political campaigns, increase name recognition, and provide voter support—measuring their state and district effectiveness by the amount of federal funds they bring back into their state or district during the budgetary process.

In this reality, spending can only increase—which explains why fiscal restraint is next to impossible.

Bottom line…

It has been said that the greatest disaster that can befall a nation is that a politician is not elected to the office they seek or reelected to the office they currently hold.

However corrupt the political parties might be, one party, the progressive communist democrats, is seeking to destroy America from within and to replace capitalism with communism.

We are so screwed.

We are living in unbelievable times.

  • Queers support Muslim terrorists who want to kill them for being Queer and, secondarily, for being Americans.
  • Eco-sexual: a new gender refers to individuals who are aroused by nature.

  • “They babies” replace boys and girls who are given unisex names like Blake, Riley, Ashley, and Drew to help them transition with minimal paperwork should they do so later in life, like three- or four years of age.

  • A new definition of “sacred space,” as the head of the Navajo Nation, Buu Nygren, demands NASA consult with American Indians (American Indian for pay off) before sending cremated human remains to the Moon because Indians worship the Moon in their rituals. “We view it as a part of our spiritual heritage, an object of reverence and respect. The act of depositing human remains and other materials, which could be perceived as discards in any other location, on the Moon is tantamount to desecration of this sacred space.”

  • A slow-moving walk through the Capitol is a life-altering “insurrection” to overthrow the government.

  • Joe Biden, the height of idiocracy, can’t remember anything except he wants his ice cream—who knows if he even knows he is the President of the United States on any given day.

  • Donald Trump confuses credentials, money, or good looks with competence and then blames everybody else when things go wrong.

Dem Rep Proposes Bill To Tear Down Statue Of Liberty To Protest GOP Immigration Law

Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL) drew ridicule on social media after he suggested that Republicans should back a bill to remove the iconic Statue of Liberty along with their “bigoted” immigration laws. The controversial statement was made during a hearing of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee on immigration where the GOP’s Secure the Border Act, also known as H.R.2, was being discussed. This comprehensive border security and immigration bill, passed in May 2021, aims to curb the asylum process for those crossing the border and supports the resumption of the construction of the border wall. <Source>

ON THE BRINK OF EXPOSURE: ELITES FINALLY ADMIT THE TRUTH

Dr. Evil presents the 2024 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Klaus-schwab

The global elites are scared shitless over a Trump presidency and finally admit the truth…

It is, and was, always about political power. The urgency of global climate change and raging conflicts is no longer as important as stopping Donald Trump from accessing the levers of power that would reveal the traitorous and criminal behavior of the elites.

According to European Commission Chief Ursula von der Leyen,  speaking at the annual Davos World Economic Forum, “For the global business community, the top concern for the next two years is not conflict or climate; it is disinformation and misinformation, followed closely by polarization within our societies.”

President Ursula von der Leyen: Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, dear Klaus, your annual Global Risk report makes for a stunning and sobering read. For the global business community, the top concern for the next two years is not conflict or climate, it is disinformation and misinformation, followed closely by polarization within our societies. These risks are serious because they limit our ability to tackle the big global challenges we are facing.

[OCS: Of course, the elites fear disinformation and misinformation, which they subjectively define as anything that falsifies, contradicts or places their crafted narratives or credibility in doubt or reveals instances of collusion, criminality, and the plundering of state treasuries by elite actors.]

Changes in our climate and our geopolitical climate, shifts in our demography and in our technology. Spiraling regional conflicts and intensified geopolitical competition, and their impacts on supply chains. The sobering reality is that we are once again competing more intensely across countries than we have in several decades. And this makes takes the theme of this year's Davos meeting even more relevant. Rebuilding trust. This is not a time for conflicts or polarization. This is a time to build trust.

[OCS: There is no doubt that a significant portion of the world population has lost trust in our elites, so-called experts, and government institutions as the objective truth leaks out over the internet. Even with the censorship and the de-platforming of dissidents, the truth is emerging for all to see. No wonder the elites are calling for closer partnerships formed between governments and private corporations sector to curb the free flow of information.]

It has never been more important for the public and private sector to create new connective tissue, because none of these challenges respects borders, they each require collaboration to manage risks and to forge a path forward. And this is what I want to talk today about.

[OCS: Collaboration? I say collusion-- to allow the incumbent elites to keep their freedom, fortunes, and continue to protect against those interlopers who would interfere with their continuing plundering of society.]

While governments hold many of the levers to deal with the great challenges of our time, business have the innovation, the technology, the talents to deliver the solutions we need to fight threats like climate change or industrial-scale disinformation.

[OCS: This is soft fascism, where the government controls the means of production, through incentives which promote or punish the captive corporate participants. Though the use of legislation, tax incentives, government contracts, grants, and subsidies, governments are using the taxpayer’s funds to purchase or coerce political power which is directed at citizens.]

And this is more important than ever as we start 2024, the biggest electoral year in history. Democracies across the world will head to the polls and half of the global population will be affected. This includes over 450 million people in the European Union, a union of 27 democracies, where all of us have the right to speak our mind, to be ourselves, even if we are different from the majority. In a democracy, it is the people with their choices and behaviors who pick winners and losers in the economic arena. Companies are free to compete. Change-makers are free to innovate. Merit determines economic success, and our rules are built to ensure this. To protect intellectual property, to protect the safety of industrial data, to protect the savings of people and companies and Europe stands up for global trade based on fair and open markets.

[OCS: This is total bullshit! Global trade is not based on fair and open markets, but government incentives and tariff policy. Individuals have little choice if the range of what they can select is limited by government fiat. Corresponding to the voter’s being allowed to choose between the political party’s pre-selected and promoted choices.]

Of course, like in all democracies, our freedom comes with risks. There will always be those who try to exploit our openness, both from inside and out. There will always be attempts to put us off track. For example, with disinformation and misinformation.

[OCS: I can think of nothing more dangerous than the corrupt, radical, progressive communist democrats who have warped our Constitution and Judiciary to impose and enforce their tyrannical policies. And of the two, the threat arising from the inside is infinitely more deadly and dangerous than the threat from the outside. And I agree that disinformation and misinformation are problematical, especially when the biggest source of disinformation and misinformation is the government and its propagandists in the legacy media and on social media platforms.]

Senators consider giving cyber investigators extraordinary new authority to fight hackers

The next stage of the Biden administration’s collaboration with cyber firms could involve giving certain tech executives special investigatory powers, depending on congressional action.

The Biden administration wants Congress to make a federal board of cyber investigators permanent, but many questions linger about what authority to give the investigators — some of whom work full-time in the private sector.

President Biden created the Cyber Safety Review Board to investigate devastating hacks via a 2021 executive order.

Mr. Biden has asked Congress to make the board an enduring fixture of government beyond individual cyberattacks and the Department of Homeland Security wants the board members to have subpoena power, according to Sen. Maggie Hassan, New Hampshire Democrat.

The 15-person board’s membership includes executives from businesses such as Google and Palo Alto Networks. Other tech companies have concerns that businesses’ participation on the board can create an unfair competitive advantage for board members, according to the Information Technology Industry Council’s John Miller.

“If the CSRB is going to continue to have private sector members on its board, even if you insulate them from the decision-making process as to whether to issue a subpoena, it does, at the very least, create some apparent conflicts of interest when you have members of the private sector subpoenaing other members of the private sector who might be competitors,” he said at a committee hearing.

Mr. Miller told senators on Wednesday that giving the board new authority would disrupt tech companies’ collaborative partnerships with federal cyber officials and create adversarial relationships with those overseeing the investigators.

For the board’s ability to investigate large, complex incidents where there is profit motive to protect, potentially, some of that information at play, and this committee and others have seen the challenge in investigating complex issues within the technology industry, the subpoena can be a basic and useful mechanism,” Mr. Herr said.

This is a stunningly bad idea since most of the private firm's security personnel are former government employees with loyalty to their former intelligence and law enforcement agencies. This is potentially worse than FISA and its secret investigations of individuals.

Bottom line…

Behold the danger of the transnational globalist elites.

Follow their prescriptions for mitigating the problems they have caused and get royally screwed.

We are so screwed if we allow progressive communist democrats to destroy our nation from within.

Senate GOP Border Deal Leaked: Migrants to Get Work Permits, Lawyers, Green Cards

The Senate GOP leadership’s draft border deal with the White House would reward illegal migration and encourage more foreign graduates to take jobs from American graduates, says the Immigration Accountability Project.

Border deal would:

1) Increase green cards by 50,000/year

2) Work permits for adult children of H-1B holders

3) Immediate work permits to every illegal alien released from custody

4) Taxpayer funded lawyers to certain UACs and mentally incompetent aliens

5) Expulsion authority for a limited number of days ONLY if encounters exceed 5k/day over a seven day period

6) Restricts parole for those who enter without authorization between ports of entry

CONSPIRACY THEORIES: CAN WE TRUST OUR GOVERNMENT?

Uncle-sam-gun-to-head

I do not doubt that we are living in dark times—an era when a confluence of slow-moving events threatens to overtake and fundamentally transform our nation. 

We have learned that some suspected truths about our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies may be true. That the leadership has been politically corrupted and that the underlying bureaucracy may consist of incompetents and those acting in their own self-interest. These agencies now appear capable of heinous actions, erasing evidence of their wrongdoing or at least diffusing the blame to prevent accountability. From assassinating a president (Kennedy), staging public relations events that have gone horribly wrong (Waco, Ruby Ridge), and entrapping citizens in nefarious activities to enhance their reputations and funding, it appears what was previously dismissed as conspiracies might not only be accurate, but worse than imagined.

Even worse, our watchdog, the mainstream media that professes to speak truth to power, has been captured by that power and now serves a dual purpose as its protectors and propagandists.

Look around…

Ocb-work

We are surrounded by evil government actors colluding with technology corporations and the military-industrial complex to engage in perpetual conflicts that generate outrageous fortunes for war profiteers. Consider the $150 billion that has unaccountably disappeared in Ukraine. What most Americans do not know is that much of that money was flowing to American firms that sold overpriced goods and services to Ukraine. A direct attack on the U.S. Treasury, or should I say, the government’s printing presses. In reality, imposing the hidden tax of inflation on the American consumer that taxes everyone, from the poor to the rich.

And, if you look closely, it was a conflict started not by Russia but by the United States. It was a joint product of the CIA, Department of State, the Obama White House, and the corruptocrats in Washington, D.C. Spearheaded by such evildoers as Victoria Nuland, a Bush-Cheney neocon, now the Acting United States Deputy Secretary of State, who appears to be knee-deep in the 2014 Maidan Color Revolution that saw the overthrow of Putin’s Ukrainian puppet, then President Viktor Yanukovych, and the installation of President Petro Poroshenko, and followed by Volodymyr Zelenskyy. All profoundly corrupt and in bed with Western interests. All Russian President Putin asked was that Ukraine not become involved with NATO, which he regarded as Cuba-like encroachment, and that certain areas filled with ethnic Russians be allowed to rejoin Russia. Needless thousands of men, women, and children have been murdered, maimed, or have become penniless refugees as an unnecessary battle raged between governments.

Was the Hamas attack greenlighted in the White House?

Many are beginning to believe that the so-called “failure” of Israel’s storied intelligence operations that resulted in the October 7 terrorist attack may have involved the White House seeking a diversion from the electoral woes faced by the Democrats and the failure of their foreign and domestic policies, with pretty much the same cadre of Obamacons who attacked Benjamin Netanyahu and demanded a two-state solution that would keep Israel on perpetual military alert. Some suggest that indications of a pending attack were suppressed or slow-walked through the system. This is not an outrageous consideration given the Obamacon-led White House’s demands for Israel to scale back its attack on Gaza and withdraw from the area.

Bottom line…

Usually, I point to former President Barack Obama and his cadre of progressive communist democrats as the root of the majority of government evil. Of course, they are acting in concert with the Bush-Cheney neo-cons who have brought us endless wars and who make up the establishment wing of the Republican Party.

That is pretty much why I fear neo-con Nikki Haley and those she might appoint to office, including Bushie Republican turncoats.

It appears that the only solution to stop America’s slide into authoritarianism is to elect Donald Trump in 2024. I even have doubts about Ron DeSantis, who may turn towards globalism.

We are beyond being screwed; we stand totally fucked at the present time.

UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: DEMOCRAT LEGISLATION WOULD TAKE OUT FARRAKAHAN'S FRUIT OF ISLAM UNIT

DONKEY-CRAP

Two progressive communist democrats, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) and Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD), are defying hundreds of years of American tradition by attempting to outlaw privately organized paramilitary and militia group activities in the United States, the last defense against governmental tyranny.

These two reprobates define a “private paramilitary organization” as any group of three or more persons associating under a command structure to operate in public, train in public combat, or function as a law enforcement or security service unit.

The legislation creates different tiers of criminal penalties based on whether violations result in injury or property damage; provides harsher penalties for repeat offenders; and allows for a probationary sentence for first-time offenders. It also creates civil remedies by authorizing the Department of Justice to seek injunctive relief against paramilitary activity, and by creating a private right of action for individuals harmed by paramilitary activity to seek injunctive relief and/or damages. The legislation contains clear exceptions for activities such as historic reenactments, state-sanctioned trainings, and veterans’ parades.

Specifically, the legislation would prohibit the following dangerous conduct:

  • publicly patrolling, drilling, or engaging in harmful or deadly paramilitary techniques
  • interfering with or interrupting government proceedings
  • interfering with the exercise of someone else’s constitutional rights 
  • falsely assuming the functions of law enforcement and asserting authority over others
  • training to engage in such behavior

A copy of the legislation can be found HERE. A one-page overview of the legislation can be found HERE.

It should surprise no one that far-left organizations like Protect Democracy and the Center for American Progress endorse the Preventing Private Paramilitary Activity Act.

The un-American bastards would also curtail the activities of radical progressive communist democrat front groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Not to mention Louis Farrakhan’s Fruit of Islam organization.

The Fruit of Islam (FOI) is the security and disciplinary wing of the Nation of Islam. It has also been described as its paramilitary wing. The Fruit of Islam wear distinctive blue, brown, or white uniforms and caps and have units at all NOI temples. Louis Farrakhan, as head of the Nation of Islam, is commander-in-chief of the Fruit of Islam, and his son, Mustapha Farrakhan Sr., is second in command as the Supreme Captain. The women’s counterpart to the Fruit of Islam is Muslim Girls Training (MGT).

The Fruit of Islam draws its membership from male members in Nation of Islam mosques. All men registered in the Nation of Islam as members are by default a part of the FOI. All Nation of Islam mosques have a branch of the FOI headed by a local captain who is appointed by the local minister.

Bottom line…

Along with disarming law-abiding citizens whose activities are constitutionally protected by the Second Amendment, these human garbage receptacles are attempting to mount a pre-emptive strike on a citizen’s last-ditch attempt to curtail government tyranny. Using a thoroughly corrupt Department of Justice and the FBI is especially dangerous.

We are so screwed.

WHAT ARE THE GLOBALISTS UP TO?

Meet Klaus Schwab...

Klaus-schwab

There is no doubt in my mind that the greatest calamity facing politicians, both progressive communist democrats and their globalist swampy republican cohorts, is exposure, the type of truth-telling that reduces or eliminates bad behavior.

Unfortunately, the corporatized media no longer “speaks truth to power” as they have become propaganda mills to secure government advertising, contracts, grants, subsidies, and favorable tax treatment, if not for themselves, then for their corporate masters.

Consider this survey from the World Economic Forum, headed by arch-villain Klaus Schwab, a German mechanical engineer and economist whose parents had moved FROM Switzerland TO Germany during the Third Reich for his father to assume the role of director at Escher Wyss AG, an industrial company and contractor for the Nazi regime.

Top 10 Risks

“Which of the following best characterizes your outlook for the world over the short term ( 2 years) and long term ( 10 years)”

2 years

  1. Misinformation and disinformation – The scariest thing for a globalist is a truth that falsifies and negates their narrative or questions their assumptions and outcomes.
  2. Extreme weather events – Man cannot affect extreme weather events with taxes, policies, or even understand them with flawed models and dodgy data. It is the role of man to adapt to the weather and mitigate its effects. Sane people do not continue to build in hazardous areas and not expect water or lava in the living room.
  3. Societal polarization – Globalists continue to polarize populations with their identity politics; racializing, sexualizing, and radicalizing populations to gain political power.
  4. Cyber insecurity – Amazingly, globalists allow everybody to access cutting edge technology and malignant workers to fill sensitive infrastructure positions, handing the keys to the kingdom to those with their own agendas.
  5. Interstate armed conflict – Nations have always fought over land, natural resources, and the national labor force. Human nature will always prevail over political constructs.
  6. Lack of economic opportunity – This is a function of capital availability, interest rates, and regulatory reform.
  7. Inflation – Allowing central banks to print money and manage a economy is to create asset bubbles, booms, and busts.
  8. Involuntary migration – Since the dawn of man, man adapts to changing conditions by adaptation and relocation.
  9. Economic downturn – This is a function of malignant policies and capital mismanagement.
  10. Pollution – How can the globalists mediate pollution by selling pollution indulgences like carbon credit that trade money for the right to pollute.

10 years

  1. Extreme weather events -- Man is unable to manage nature on a global scale.
  2. Critical change in earth systems -- Man is unable to manage nature on a global scale.
  3. Biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse – Man is unable to manage nature on a global scale.
  4. Natural resource shortages – This is part of the Malthusian myth that drives the de-growthers and those wanting to control natural resources that allow governance by managing real or imagined scarcity.
  5. Misinformation and disinformation
  6. Adverse outcomes of Al technologies – The globalists are afraid that AI will reveal historical precedents, adverse outcomes, and contrarian information that negates the globalist narrative.
  7. Involuntary migration
  8. Cyber insecurity
  9. Societal polarization
  10. Pollution

These risks are so generalized that they are often manipulated by self-interested parties to gain or maintain political power by creating fear in ill-educated or ill-informed people.

My list is short and on point.

  1. Political corruption and graft by individuals who act in their own self-interests and on behalf of the special interests that support them, their agenda, and their aspirations.
  2. Unwillingness to confront evil with targeted violence, including unfortunate collateral damage.
  3. Unwillingness to speak the truth about multiculturalism, moral equivalency, and communism rebranded as diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  4. Censorship of contrarian positions and the de-platforming of dissidents.

We are so screwed when we hide the real motivations of individual actors: it’s all about gaining or maintaining power, money, and position.

BARBARIANS AT THE GATE ATTACK WHITE HOUSE

Far-left-insurrection
Wh-damage
Once again, the progressive communist democrats and their mushy-headed useful idiots are supporting a terrorist regime that will come for America after it finishes with Israel.

Thank heavens the Israelis have Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a true world leader and warrior willing to protect his nation and its borders, instead of a corrupt, lying, senile old fool who thinks he is back in the Senate.

Ask yourself, who are these people who support baby killers, rapists, and torturers? Where do they come from? But most importantly, who the hell is paying for the professional agitators and arranging this rebellion?

Bottom line…

While the government targets parents and pro-life supporters, it ignores foreign spies, unregistered foreign agents, and enemy agents hidden as college students within our nation. And still, the progressive communist democrats demand that we import more Muslims whose religion, culture, and mores are antithetical to Western values and American exceptionalism.

It's time to deport the troublemakers and close our borders.

As for the government staffers usurping the role of our elected officials – fire their sorry asses.

We are so screwed.

HAKEEM JEFFRIES: MASTER BULLSHIT ARTIST

Bullshit personified...

HAKEEM

Master of projection…

Ascribing the actions of progressive communist democrats onto their opposition is a classic example of “projection.”

LEADER JEFFRIES: “HOUSE REPUBLICANS ARE THE PARTY OF INSURRECTION, IMPEACHMENT AND ILLEGITIMATE INVESTIGATIONS”

From the very beginning of this Congress, House Democrats have made clear repeatedly that we are ready, willing and able to find bipartisan common ground with our Republican colleagues on any issue in order to solve problems for hardworking American taxpayers. We have repeatedly made clear that we want to find a bipartisan solution to making life better for everyday Americans. That is why we were sent to Congress – to serve the people.

[OCS: I CALL BULLSHIT! When presented with a clean, single-purpose bill to provide aid for Ukraine and Israel and the protection of the American border from being overrun by illegal aliens, criminals, drug dealers, set traffickers, and terrorists – the Democrats rejected the bill. When a continuing resolution bill to fund the American government included additional money for tightening the border, the Democrats rejected the bill.]

This week has once again revealed that extreme MAGA Republicans have zero interest in doing anything productive that is designed to benefit the American people. House Republicans are the party of insurrection, impeachment and illegitimate investigations. Nothing more, nothing less. Insurrection, impeachment and illegitimate investigation. These extremists have made clear once again this week that they have no ideas, no agenda, no vision, and have made no progress on solving problems for everyday Americans.

[OCS: Excuse me! The Russia hoax. The Ukraine hoax. The unconstitutional impeachments. The unconstitutional January 6 Fedsurrection Committee. ALL DEMOCRAT inventions.]

It’s sad and it’s shameful that extreme MAGA Republicans have turned the House of Representatives into a spectacle and a national embarrassment. The most unproductive Congress in modern American history being presided over by these MAGA Republicans whose agenda, let me correct myself, is chaos, dysfunction and extremism. That’s their agenda. That’s their substantive agenda anchored around insurrection, impeachment and illegitimate investigations.

[OCS: Again, bullshit! Chaos, dysfunction, and extremism define Biden, his entire Administration, and Congress. Biden has turned America into a GLOBAL embarrassment, even before his surrender to the Taliban and funding Iran, a state sponsor of terror. As for illegitimate investigations, is he speaking about Hunter Biden, who sold his father’s influence and office for years as an unregistered foreign agent? Is he talking about the impeachment of Joe Biden, who has committed treasonous acts?]

It's not illegal immigration -- it's an invasion!

Bottom line...

Where is a list of the problems the Democrats have solved for hardworking American taxpayers?

How many of the problems were created by the Democrats?

Remember when you vote: Republicans can’t solve all of the problems, but the Democrats created the problems.

We are so screwed.

Democrats-tyranny
