Today’s Required Reading: Eyewitness to Provocateurs at the January 6 Capitol Riot

There has never been any real question to anyone paying attention that the January 6 riot at the Capitol Building in Washington, DC had all the hallmarks of a false flag operation that had been planned and prepared well in advance. Indeed, over the 7 weeks that have passed since the riot took place, more and more proof of that reality has come to light despite the best efforts of the Democrats and their toadies in the news media to ignore it.

At TheFederalist.com today, one eyewitness to the event, J. Michael Waller, a senior analyst for strategy at the Center for Security Policy, has published a long piece detailing his real-time eyewitness observations of the event. What he has to tell us only serves to confirm the initial impression of a classic false flag operation designed to interrupt congressional objections to the electoral vote tally and prevent any real investigation into the massive election fraud that took place on November 3 from ever taking place. Of course, it has since been used as an excuse to turn the nation’s capital into a permanent police state.

It’s a long, 25-30 minute read, but it is well worth that time investment.

Here are some outtakes from the piece to whet your appetite:

 

The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.

A small number of cadre appeared to use the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol what appeared to be four separate cells or units:

  1. Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
  2. Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
  3. Fake Trump protesters. A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
  4. Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers. A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.

All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor. However, they did not all appear at the same time. Not until the very end did it appear there was a prearranged plan to storm the Capitol building, and to manipulate the unsuspecting crowd as cover and as a follow-on force.

Of the thousands of people I passed or who passed me along Constitution Avenue, some were indignant and contemptuous of Congress, but not one appeared angry or incited to riot. Many of the marchers were families with small children; many were elderly, overweight, or just plain tired or frail—traits not typically attributed to the riot-prone.

Some said they were police officers from around the country. Many wore pro-police shirts or carried pro-police “Back the Blue” flags.

Diverse Cross-Section of America

Among the hundreds and hundreds of flags—perhaps thousands—displayed over the next few hours, I saw only two Confederate battle flags and one white supremacist sign, the latter of which some suspected aloud was a leftist plant. The two flags and one sign, I thought, would feature prominently in news reports to present a false image of the crowd.

A large group of African-American men sported shirts that said “Blacks for Trump.” Figuring that journalists would emphasize the solitary racist sign and Confederate flags, deliberately ignoring the rest, I took note of the fact that many demonstrators were black, Asian, and Latino, with a strong presence of Vietnamese- and Chinese-Americans.

Although the crowd represented a broad cross-section of Americans, mostly working-class by their appearance and manner of speech, some people stood out. A very few didn’t share the jovial, friendly, earnest demeanor of the great majority. Some obviously didn’t fit in.

Among them were younger twentysomethings wearing new Trump or MAGA hats, often with the visor in the back, showing no enthusiasm and either looking at the ground, glowering, or holding out their phones with outstretched arms to make videos of as many faces as possible in the crowd.

Some appeared awkward, the way someone’s body language inadvertently shows the world that he feel like he doesn’t fit in. A few seemed to be nursing a deep, churning rage.

They generally covered their faces with cloth masks, as opposed to the pro-Trump people, few of whom wore masks at all. They walked, often hands in pockets, in clusters of perhaps four to six with at least one of them frequently looking behind.

These outliers group looked like trouble. I presumed these fake Trump protesters were Antifa or something similar. However, that entire afternoon I saw none of them act aggressively or cause any problems. At least, not from my vantage point.

Today’s Required Reading: The Thirty Tyrants

If you want a great read about how and why America’s class of elites have sold out the rest of the U.S. population to China, you should take the time to read “The Thirty Tyrants”, published at Tabletmag.com. It was forwarded to me by a friend this morning. It’s a long read, but well worth your time investment.

Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite:

But if Donald Trump saw decoupling the United States from China as a way to dismantle the oligarchy that hated him and sent American jobs abroad, he couldn’t follow through on the vision. After correctly identifying the sources of corruption in our elite, the reasons for the impoverishment of the middle classes, and the threats foreign and domestic to our peace, he failed to staff and prepare to win the war he asked Americans to elect him to fight.

And because it was true that China was the source of the China Class’ power, the novel coronavirus coming out of Wuhan became the platform for its coup de grace. So Americans became prey to an anti-democratic elite that used the coronavirus to demoralize them; lay waste to small businesses; leave them vulnerable to rioters who are free to steal, burn, and kill; keep their children from school and the dying from the last embrace of their loved ones; and desecrate American history, culture, and society; and defame the country as systemically racist in order to furnish the predicate for why ordinary Americans in fact deserved the hell that the elite’s private and public sector proxies had already prepared for them.

For nearly a year, American officials have purposefully laid waste to our economy and society for the sole purpose of arrogating more power to themselves while the Chinese economy has gained on America’s. China’s lockdowns had nothing to do with the difference in outcomes. Lockdowns are not public health measures to reduce the spread of a virus. They are political instruments, which is why Democratic Party officials who put their constituents under repeated lengthy lockdowns, like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, are signaling publicly that it is imperative they be allowed to reopen immediately now that Trump is safely gone.

That Democratic officials intentionally destroyed lives and ended thousands of them by sending the ill to infect the elderly in nursing homes is irrelevant to America’s version of the Thirty Tyrants. The job was to boost coronavirus casualties in order to defeat Trump and they succeeded. As with Athens’ anti-democratic faction, America’s best and brightest long ago lost its way. At the head of the Thirty Tyrants was Critias, one of Socrates’ best students, a poet and dramatist. He may have helped save Socrates from the regime’s wrath, and yet the philosopher appears to have regretted that his method, to question everything, fed Critias’ sweeping disdain for tradition. Once in power, Critias turned his nihilism on Athens and destroyed the city.

Meanwhile, Kissinger’s geopolitical maneuver became the cornerstone of his historical legacy. It also made him a wealthy man selling access to Chinese officials. In turn, Kissinger pioneered the way for other former high-ranking policymakers to engage in their own foreign influence-peddling operations, like William Cohen, defense secretary in the administration of Bill Clinton, who greased the way for China to gain permanent most favored nation trade status in 2000 and become a cornerstone of the World Trade Organization. The Cohen Group has two of its four overseas offices in China, and includes a number of former top officials, including Trump’s former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who recently failed to disclose his work for the Cohen Group when he criticized the Trump administration’s “with us or against us” approach to China in an editorial. “The economic prosperity of U.S. allies and partners hinges on strong trade and investment relationships with Beijing,” wrote Mattis, who was literally being paid by China for taking exactly that position.

Just after defeating communism in the Soviet Union, America breathed new life into the communist party that survived. And instead of Western democratic principles transforming the CCP, the American establishment acquired a taste for Eastern techno-autocracy. Tech became the anchor of the U.S.-China relationship, with CCP funding driving Silicon Valley startups, thanks largely to the efforts of Dianne Feinstein, who, after Kissinger, became the second-most influential official driving the U.S.-CCP relationship for the next 20 years.

In 1978, as the newly elected mayor of San Francisco, Feinstein befriended Jiang Zemin, then the mayor of Shanghai and eventually president of China. As mayor of America’s tech epicenter, her ties to China helped the growing sector attract Chinese investment and made the state the world’s third-largest economy. Her alliance with Jiang also helped make her investor husband, Richard Blum, a wealthy man. As senator, she pushed for permanent MFN trade status for China by rationalizing China’s human rights violations, while her friend Jiang consolidated his power and became the Communist Party’s general secretary by sending tanks into Tiananmen Square. Feinstein defended him. “China had no local police,” Feinstein said that Jiang had told her. “Hence the tanks,” the senator from California reassuringly explained. “But that’s the past. One learns from the past. You don’t repeat it. I think China has learned a lesson.”

Victory! Texas Wins Challenge to Biden Deportation Freeze.

Turns out that some Republicans aren’t just going to take all of this nonsense sitting down. – Throughout the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, every executive order he issued was immediately challenged by Lawfare lawyers in the federal courts. The leftwing activists were clever about bringing their challenges in leftist-dominated jurisdictions like Hawaii, Oregon and California, where they had the best chance of drawing a fellow leftist judge who would rule in their favor.

Many had assumed that Republicans were too dumb and timid to play the same legal games when China Joe Potato Head Biden began signing off on the dozens of orders laid out before him by his elder-abusing handlers. Frankly, given the past behavior by the GOP establishment, that seemed a pretty safe assumption.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, though, is not a part of the GOP establishment. So, when Biden issued his order freezing deportations of illegal alien criminals, Paxton immediately filed a challenge to that order. Today, the federal judge who drew the case, District Judge Drew Tipton, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days:

From a story at MSN.com:

A federal judge in Texas on Tuesday temporarily blocked a move by new U.S. President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of certain immigrants for a 100-day period, a swift legal setback for his ambitious immigration agenda.

U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, an appointee of former President Donald Trump in the Southern District of Texas, issued a temporary restraining order that blocks the policy nationwide for 14 days following a legal challenge by Texas.

The Biden administration is expected to appeal the ruling, which halts the policy while both parties submit briefs on the matter.

Biden promised on the campaign trail to enact a 100-day moratorium on deportations if elected, a proposal that contrasted sharply with the immigration crackdown promoted by Trump, a Republican.

[End]

Note how the story – published first by the hacks at Reuters – identifies Tipton as a Trump appointee, in stark contrast to the corrupt media’s practice of uniformly failing to made such identification of the Obama and Clinton appointees who issued nationwide restraining orders against an array of Trump orders. But hey, that’s just what the corrupt, Nazi-style news media does.

So, Republicans have their first court victory against this far-leftwing administration. Let’s hope and pray it is but the first of many more to come.

God Bless Texas.

January 20, 2021: A Date That Will Live in Infamy

Guest Piece By Gregg Updike

January 20, 2021 was our third day in the last eighty years that will “Live in Infamy”.

Like the other two days it was a beautiful clear crisp morning, but by the end of the day in my Tennessee it will be raining and miserable.  And like the other two days the three “man caused disasters” all occurred through a lack of intelligence and carefully choreographed manipulation.

The first was a political manipulation of a nation 4,800 miles from the continental United States that Americans cared little about in order to get the United States into another foreign entanglement on the other side of Asia that most citizens desperately wanted to avoid at all costs.   December 7, 1941 was blamed on a failure of intelligence, and two local commanders were scapegoated for the disaster; no other people in power were sanctioned.

A willful bliss and pervasive ignorance among our nation’s intelligence organizations coupled with a badly flawed foreign, domestic and economic policy which unnecessary increased our dependence on foreign oil once again failed to connect the dots and 9-11 happened.  Again, no policy makers were held accountable or sanctioned for that failure.

Yesterday completed the trifecta, the dream of the Left, to manipulate enough Americans to accept the final step in the slow methodical decline of the greatest, most prosperous and most generous nation on earth.  Now we have the frailest figurehead ever to hold our highest office run by a massive cabal of anti-Americans with absolutely no checks and balances.  Unlike twelve years ago when the same figurehead became the empty suit vice president of the empty suit president and controlled the legislative branch with massive majorities in both houses of congress, this time he controls congress with the slimmest of margins, so one might think we would be relatively safe from the most radical of impulses of the new administration.  Unfortunately, that is not the case this time around, not with all the GOP frauds who are more than willing to cross the aisle in the spirit of “unity and “bipartisanship”.

We are now going to be governed by the oldest president and the oldest congressional leadership in our history.  One might think, that with age comes wisdom and restraint, and in the past, you would be correct in that assumption.  However, that dynamic has changed for several reasons:

These septuagenarians and octogenarians who are now in positions of power are all from the sixties’ radical generation who never grew up and never gave up their quest to “fundamentally change America”.  It took a long time, but now the path is clear for them to put the pedal to the metal.

Yesterday, was the culmination of a massive intelligence failure of the collective body politic.   It will prove to be much more damaging in the short and long term to our republic because it will be irreversible under the current fraudulent election process.  Regardless of the amount and nature of the massive and undeniable election fraud, the fact remains that at least 60 million Americans could not be bothered to cast a vote to save their country and at least another 60 million Americans actively voted for the destruction of our Constitutional Republic and the elimination of the last vestiges of its system of checks and balances.

In 1968, when I was in the third grade, I learned of the American system of government and how we citizens were able to vote for our leadership.  I felt, what a great system we have; a system to cherish, a system that will ensure the success of the nation forever.  What I was taught back then sadly is not taught to our youth today in most of our schools.  The seeds of our destruction were being planted, very quietly, and very surreptitiously through a series of laws, and court decisions that few saw coming and thus few fought against.  There were many other distractions the MSM were using to keep much of this growing cancer off the radar.  So much for the fourth estate being the nation’s watchdog via the “free press”.  They then, like now were active participants in the propagandizing of America.

The Vietnam War was used as a distraction to keep the masses unaware; it was also used to get Americans used to the idea that defeat was a viable alternative to success, particularly in these “optional wars”.  Prior to Vietnam, defeat, or more correctly, a lack of victory, was an anathema to the American Psyche.  Now such outcomes are baked into the cake.  Our military and our nation were manipulated into accepting stalemated outcomes that always cost us dearly and gained us nothing ever since.  Also, since the seventies, our all-volunteer military has become a social petri dish with the ultimate goal of reducing its readiness and effectiveness.

Then came the contrived gasoline shortages of the seventies which showed everyone just how vulnerable we were to many of the third world’s most despotic rulers.

The 1980 election of Ronald Wilson Reagan reversed our march to the fundamental change the Left so desperately craved; at this time, the sixties’ radicals were beginning to come into positions of power.  Reagan was the original MAGA president, and showed the world that good, when properly applied, can overcome evil.  He was also mocked and strongly opposed by the Left and they went into hiding under the radar for most of his eight years.  Sadly, they weren’t defeated, not even close, they just continued to do their evil deeds under the radar via the manipulation of education and thought.  By the eighties, our federal government was so monolithic that it became a force unto its own and was able to drive a hidden agenda that even Reagan (and later Trump) could not halt.  He was only successful in abating its worst excesses.  But the USSR was ultimately defeated and that was a big blow to the Left.  Reagan brought peace, prosperity and pride back to America and was roundly ridiculed for it by his powerful and influential critics on the Left that he was not able to defeat.  With the 1988 landslide election of his stooge vice president (another bad appointment by a pro-America president) the Left’s survival was assured.

In the ensuing 28 years we had a succession of weak (at best) Republican presidents and radical Democratic presidents that fully reengaged the Left; often under the premise of “bipartisanship” and reaching across the aisle to our friends on the Left.

By 2016 we were in a crisis, and huge numbers of Americans finally saw the light and gave the outsider Donald John Trump a chance to MAGA like Reagan did under similar circumstances.  The Left, and their standard bearer, Hillary was lazy, overconfident and despite their cheating and stacking the deck in 2016, were upset bigly by Trump.  The main difference between Trump and Reagan, was the Left was better organized and had further metastasized throughout all levels of government by the time Trump came to power AND they were NOT going to let him have eight years to implement his MAGA/KAG agenda.  It just was not going to be allowed to happen because if Americans could see the difference between Trump’s policies of capitalistic freedom and prosperity and the Democratic Party’s vision of controlling socialism and despair for eight years, they may never recover.  And that could not be allowed to stand.

Trump, and his vision had to be defeated at all costs and ultimately it was.  Now we get to reap the fruits of our collective laziness of fifty of the last sixty years.

We were able to survive and recover from the Pearl Harbor and the 9-11 episodic sneak attacks that had little staying power against the overall strength of the United States.  January 20, 2021 represents decades of effort on the part of our republic’s domestic and foreign enemies.  It remains to be seen if we will be able to overcome the assault that will be brought against freedom loving Americans in the years to come.

Sunday’s Riot Narrative Having Failed, FBI Creates Convenient New Anti-Trump Narrative

The FBI under Christopher Wray has come to specialize in the creation of laughably false narratives designed to slander President Donald Trump and his supporters. Wray has really shifted that aspect of his propaganda operation into high gear in the wake of the clearly stolen presidential election that he and his raging dumpster fire agency helped to secure through rank indifference and refusal to investigate.

Yesterday, we talked about the failure of the FBI’s prophesied “violent riots” it falsely claimed were being planned by Trump supporters to magically materialize in all 50 state capitals on Sunday:

Speaking of “violent riots,” where were they yesterday? – Hey, remember when the FBI held a big press conference 8 or 9 days ago and warned the nation that they had “intelligence” (such an ironic word when used in context of this raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence) indicating that the evil Trump supporters were planning to stage “violent riots” in all 50 state capitals on January 17? Yeah, we all remember that, don’t we?

So, yesterday was January 17, and it turned out that the FBI’s warning was just the latest in a long series of instances in which the FBI willingly coordinated with the Democrats and corrupt news media to construct a false narrative designed to slander President Trump and his supporters. The closest thing anyone could dig up was the scene below of some clown with a group called the Boogaloo Bois paling around with his BLM/Antifa buds in Lansing, Michigan:

These people are not Trump supporters. Not any of them. Not one.

Well, never let it be said that Chris Wray would allow abject narrative failure to prevent him from continuing to do his duty on behalf of the DC Swamp and its reigning UniParty interests. Yesterday afternoon, the FBI floated yet another laughably false narrative designed to advance the narrative that Trump and his supporters are inherently violent, claiming to have “intelligence” from an anonymous source (because of course the source is anonymous) that a literal army of domestic terrorists motivated by Qanon is planning on invading the nation’s capital tomorrow to disrupt the “national unity” installation of the DC Swamp’s designated sock puppet, China Joe Potato Head Biden.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. From a story at the despicable Washington Post:

The FBI privately warned law enforcement agencies Monday that far-right extremists have discussed posing as National Guard members in Washington and others have reviewed maps of vulnerable spots in the city — signs of potential efforts to disrupt Wednesday’s inauguration, according to an intelligence report obtained by The Washington Post.

The document, a summary of threats that the FBI identified in a Monday intelligence briefing, warned that both “lone wolves” and adherents of the QAnon extremist ideology.

The FBI on Monday declined to characterize the credibility or gravity of the threats it outlined for law enforcement in advance of the inauguration.

The agency instead pointed to remarks FBI Director Christopher A. Wray made last week, when he said the agents were monitoring a “extensive amount of concerning online chatter” and noted the challenge of “trying to distinguish what’s aspirational versus what’s intentional.”

[End]

Look, all of this – the fake narrative, the demonization of Trump supporters, the latest impeachment sham, the calling up of an absurd number of National Guard personnel to turn DC into a literal police state – is designed to cover for the fact that the Swamp knows that half the public hasn’t bought into its Big Lie that China Joe was fairly and legally elected on November 3.

When the people don’t buy the Big Lie, then the illegitmate government must crack down in an effort to make dissent illegal. This a fundamental facet of any fascist/Marxist/communist regime that rules through fraud and force.

Chris Wray and his dumpster fire agency have a huge role to play in that crackdown, and they are playing it fully to the hilt.

All in the name of “national unity.”

Be careful out there.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: FBI Conducts Accidental Florida Sting as its Predicted Violent Riots Fail to Materialize

[Warning: profanity.] Why do you suppose the corrupt, mainstream news media won’t show you this aspect of the “attempted coup” on January 6? – Ok, well, the answer is obvious, isn’t it?

Man, no one could’ve seen this one coming. – Oh, wait…

If your corn starts to taste a little funny and causes you to experience rectal bleeding, nothing to worry about, it’s just the nanobots:

Man, if that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, nothing will.

The evolution of China Joe Potato Head Biden’s attitude towards condemning violent riots:

Image

Because, “Unity” or something.

Speaking of “violent riots,” where were they yesterday? – Hey, remember when the FBI held a big press conference 8 or 9 days ago and warned the nation that they had “intelligence” (such an ironic word when used in context of this raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence) indicating that the evil Trump supporters were planning to stage “violent riots” in all 50 state capitals on January 17? Yeah, we all remember that, don’t we?

So, yesterday was January 17, and it turned out that the FBI’s warning was just the latest in a long series of instances in which the FBI willingly coordinated with the Democrats and corrupt news media to construct a false narrative designed to slander President Trump and his supporters. The closest thing anyone could dig up was the scene below of some clown with a group called the Boogaloo Bois paling around with his BLM/Antifa buds in Lansing, Michigan:

These people are not Trump supporters. Not any of them. Not one.

I mean, dang, BLM/Antifa domestic terrorists couldn’t even drum up a good riot in Portland, Oregon on Sunday. All they were able to come up with on the FBI’s projected day of infamy was a protest at a book store that is daring to sell a – gasp! – book.:

You seriously could never make this stuff up, folks. You just couldn’t.

Despite all of this calm breaking out around the country, Washington DC remains a capitol police state with National Guard personnel being forced to block entries and exits to and from the city and demand the rabble show proper papers. There, the FBI/Democrat/media’s new false narrative now centers around fears of an “insider attack” on the Biden/Harris sock puppet installation, er, inauguration.

What is meant by an “insider attack” you ask? Oh, you are gonna love this one. From a piece by the despicable associated press:

The FBI is screening all 25,000 National Guard troops heading to D.C. as fears mount among defense officials that those responsible for security at the inauguration could participate in an insider attack, The Associated Press reported Sunday.

The screening effort comes as D.C. has beefed its security ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday and after the deadly pro-Trump raid on the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told the AP on Sunday that officials are aware of the potential risk, and commanders have been instructed to keep an eye out for any issues among their troops. National Guard members are also receiving training on how to find any threats within their ranks, he said.

[End]

That’s right: The DC Swamp is so utterly depraved that it is now resorting to slandering the heroes who serve this country in the National Guard as a means of trying to drum up fear of an outgoing President and sympathy for its incoming sock puppet.

And of course, the kicker to the story is entirely, hilariously predictable:

But the Army secretary said the FBI’s vetting has not surfaced any problems, and there has not been any evidence of insider attacks after attending a three-hour security drill for the inauguration.

“We’re continually going through the process, and taking second, third looks at every one of the individuals assigned to this operation,” McCarthy told the AP.

[End]

Oh, no evidence that the narrative slandering the National Guard is true? Well, yes, because it’s a false  narrative! 

My goodness, this is not complicated, is it? What am I missing here?

But hey, the Feebs did manage to arrest one violent domestic terrorist. – In Florida, they arrested a “hardcore leftist” terrorist who was … wait for it … planning to attack the pro-Trump demonstrators who the FBI was falsely claiming were about to stage violent riots of their own at the Florida capitol in Tallahassee:

From the story at DailyWire:

Federal law enforcement officials arrested a self-described “hardcore leftist” and alleged Antifa supporter last week for allegedly issuing a call to arms for a violent attack on pro-Trump protesters at Florida’s Capitol.

Authorities “arrested Daniel Baker of Tallahassee for transmission, in interstate commerce, of a communication containing a threat to kidnap or to injure,” U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida announced in a statement. “Baker issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protestors gathered at the Florida Capitol this Sunday. He specifically called for others to join him in encircling any protestors and confining them at the Capitol complex using firearms.”

The criminal complaint filed by prosecutors shows that Baker describes himself as a “hardcore leftist” and allegedly has shown support for Antifa, a far-left extremist group. The criminal complaint also said that Baker participated in the far-left protests over the summer which included joining the “CHOP/CHAZ movement in Seattle, Washington during the summer of 2020.” The charging document says that Baker used “social media as a way to promote, circulate, encourage and educate followers on how to incapacitate law enforcement officers while at a protest.”

Charging documents highlight alleged social media posts from Baker where Baker calls for people to take up arms against President Donald Trump and called for “Trump terrorists” to be corralled “into the Capitol building.”

[End]

So, think this through: The FBI just completed a totally accidental sting operation on a Biden/Harris supporter. It floated a false narrative with the sole intention of slandering Trump and his supporters. But this dimwit leftist took the false narrative to heart and took to social media to issue a “call to arms” for “like-minded individuals” to arm themselves and show up at the Capitol building in Tallahassee to assault the non-existent violent Trump supporters who he was too stupid to realize the FBI had made up out of whole cloth. The intrepid FBI gumshoes then see the idiot’s Facebook posts, and have no choice but to go arrest him.

It’s like an episode of one of those really awful network cop dramas.

But no worries, Violent Leftist Guy: You will no doubt be back out on the streets without having to post bail before today is over, and the FBI will never make the mistake of hassling you again, since the agents who took you into custody have no doubt been reprimanded by their superiors in DC.

Because that’s how the system of “justice” works in America today.

That is all.

What a National $15 Minimum Wage Looks Like

I posted the photo below on my Facebook account on Sunday with the caption “Live photograph of what a national $15 minimum wage looks like:”

Image may contain: screen, phone and indoor

Some readers mistakenly took that post as an attack on poor people, which of course completely misses the point. The point is that, once the government requires fast food businesses to dramatically increase the costs associated with the jobs they provide, many, perhaps most, of those jobs will simply go away, and the workers at, say, McDonalds will increasingly be displaced by the technology seen in the photo.

I got my first actual job when I was 14 years old, helping a couple of guys run the local mini-golf park. From that point forward, I worked every summer and Christmas break throughout my high school and college years, and held jobs during many in-school semesters as well. Every one of those jobs was a minimum wage job, and I was lucky and happy to have them, even the welder’s helper job on a pipeline construction crew, working 80-90 hour weeks in the heat of South Texas summers. With time and a half for overtime, even that $2.10 minimum wage in effect in 1976-77 added up to a decent sum of money by the time September rolled around.

I also worked various jobs in local clothing and hardware stores, where I learned how to do things like deal with ornery customers, measure an inseam, iron shirts, cut pipe, wrap Christmas gifts and put bicycles together. Over one Christmas break, since I was then majoring in accounting, I was assigned the task of taking inventory in a hardware store that had at the time been in operation for more than 80 years. You could never believe how many hundreds of thousands of screws, bolts, washers and nails one store could accumulate over such a long period of time.

I also worked for little while as a checker at a grocery store and for maybe 3 days as a waiter, but that was one job I couldn’t hack. I’ve been extremely courteous to restaurant wait staff throughout my life as a result of that awful experience.

The point here is this: These minimum wage jobs are an important element of our society’s cohesiveness and evolution, and the more we have of them, the better off our society will be. Jobs like these not only serve to keep people from becoming dependent on the state, they serve to teach young people many useful skills in life.

In my own life, I could directly link that experience taking inventory to my early career as an accountant. That experience working summers in the oil field was a catalyst for developing an interest in the oil business, in which I spent my entire adult life. The experience in sales directly helped prepare me for a later career as a lobbyist.

Many people like to make fun of “burger flippers” working at fast food joints like McDonald’s, but these are some of the most useful starting jobs a person can have.  Think of the various skillsets young people develop while in such jobs. For starters, you learn how to cook things, which is one of the basic keys to human life. But you are also customer-facing much of the time, and learn to develop skills in dealing with difficult human beings, who, trust me, are every-freaking-where you go.

At a burger joint, you also learn how a basic supply chain operates, from the patties to the grill to the bun to the bag and out the window to the customer, adding accessories like salt, pepper, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, mustard, fries and ketchup and a 32 oz. soft drink with extra ice along the way. You may think it’s all trivial and tedious when you’re 20 years old and doing it, but these are all skills you will lean on throughout the rest of your life.

When the government artificially sets prices on these jobs that are so high that businesses can’t remain profitable with their current work force, many of these jobs start to disappear, and many young people lose their means of learning these important life skills. Millions of teenagers and college students aren’t lucky as I was and my grandkids are to have two parents to help them learn such skills, and the lack of job opportunities can hinder their abilities to make an adequate living as they progress through life.

I’m all for paying people more money, and many companies have commendably moved to a $15 minimum wage voluntarily in recent years. Other companies that can only remain profitable at lower wage levels haven’t done that, which is how a free market system should work. When those companies are forced by the government to pay more for their workers, they will either adapt by cutting some of their jobs or go out of business entirely, taking all of their jobs with them.

That’s the point of that picture. It has literally nothing to do with demeaning poor people, and everything to do with wanting as many people as possible to have the jobs where they will develop the skills they will use for the rest of their lives.

That is all.

Rand Paul: GOP Leadership is About to “Destroy the Republican Party”

Proof that Rand Paul reads DBDailyUpdate? – Probably not, but the Kentucky Senator does seem to agree with the piece I wrote yesterday that contends that the collapse we are seeing at Fox News right now is a canary in the coal mine for the Republican Party.

From the story at DailyWire:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) soberly predicted Friday that the Republican Party will be destroyed and hemorrhage a third of its members if party leadership votes to convict President Donald Trump during a second impeachment trial.

During an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Paul described the second impeachment push against Trump as “crazy,” and further evidence of how the president’s opponents are “bitter.”

“I just don’t understand how they can be moving forward with this,” Paul said. “And look, I’m not just saying I’m for everything President Trump has done. I was for seating the electors because I think Congress shouldn’t overturn the state electors. But at the same time, the thing they are doing is an overreaction, and if they think they’re going to have a positive feeling from the public when they’re going to go through a partisan impeachment again, I think that’s absolutely insane and wrongheaded.”

[End]

Well, it certainly is insane and wrongheaded, no question about that. But the DC Swamp UniParty is back in charge now that Trump is about to be gone, and feels the need to flex its muscle. What better way to do that and teach Trump and his voters a lesson in fear than by continuing to persecute the man after he has left the office?

And if it destroys the GOP for a generation or more, so be it. After all, people like Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, Mitt Romney and Susan Collins are far more comfortable being in the minority, anyway. Being in the majority means you have real responsibilities and power to get things done. The pressure coming from constituents becomes almost unbearable as they expect you to actually work for a living on their behalf.

But being in the minority means never having to say you’re sorry. You get to sit on the back bench spouting platitude you don’t really mean, toss ineffective fits during hearings and introduce bills your voters love that you hate, but know have no chance of going anywhere, then go back and run for re-election on the claim that there was nothing you could do since you’re in the minority.

For the RINO caucus in the House and Senate, it’s literally the perfect world, a world that allows them to focus most of their time on fundraising and ensuring they get included in the Swamp’s myriad influence peddling scams.

For McConnell and his fellow RINOs, pushing for an impeachment trial presents an opportunity for them to re-establish their UniParty bona fides after four long years of being forced by a POTUS of their own party to actually get stuff done on behalf of the American people. What better way to do that than to go along with the false narrative about the Capitol riot and continue hounding him and his family even after he’s left office?

Rand Paul’s right, but this is a battle he won’t win.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Southern Invasion Begins Anew; Bowser Plans Permanent DC Police State

Welp, it appears that America has now reached peak stupid:

Wait! Ok, NOW America has really reached Peak Stupid. Maybe.:

Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses, child and indoor

You just could never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks.

Joe Biden has no idea what day it is or how all these people got into his bedroom, Part 6,586:

Don’t worry, folks, nothing to see here! – Just thousands of Honduran “migrants” organized by Democrat activists storming up through Central America to restart the invasion of the United States as soon as the sock puppet is installed into the presidency:

My goodness. Four years of gains about to just go up in smoke.

This and other caravans are being organized now in order to take advantage of China Joe Potato Head Biden’s plans to grant “legal status” and a “path to citizenship” to illegal aliens in the country today. The official estimate is 11 million such folks are in the country today, but that “official” number has been used since 2008 despite the fact that the number has grown far higher in the intervening dozen years, and likely now stands at 20 million or higher.

Biden plans to ask congress to move legislation on this on his first day in office, according to a story at the Associated Press:

Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans.

The president-elect campaigned on a path to citizenship for the roughly 11 million people in the U.S. illegally, but it was unclear how quickly he would move while wrestling with the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and other priorities. For advocates, memories were fresh of presidential candidate Barack Obama pledging an immigration bill his first year in office, in 2009, but not tackling the issue until his second term.

Biden’s plan is the polar opposite of Donald Trump, whose successful 2016 presidential campaign rested in part on curbing or stopping illegal immigration.

“This really does represent a historic shift from Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda that recognizes that all of the undocumented immigrants that are currently in the United States should be placed on a path to citizenship,” said Marielena Hincapie, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, who was briefed on the bill.

If successful, the legislation would be the biggest move toward granting status to people in the country illegally since President Ronald Reagan bestowed amnesty on nearly 3 million people in 1986. Legislative efforts to overhaul immigration policy failed in 2007 and 2013.

[End]

That’s 20 million potential new Democrat voters. If they were potential Republican voters, Democrats would still be as against illegal immigration as Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and all the rest were just a dozen years ago. We’ve all seen those videos – no need to repeat them here.

Police State America Update. – Just as they didn’t really even try to hide their plan to steal the 2020 presidential election, Democrats aren’t even trying to hide their intentions about turning the country into a police state, starting with the nation’s capital, anymore.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, whose active encouragement of nightly BLM/Antifa riots in her city last summer and fall has turned DC into the civil unrest capital of America, has insisted on activating no fewer than 26,000 National Guard personnel to protect her party’s sock puppet-elect while he is installed into the presidency on Wednesday. Yesterday, she made known her plan to keep her police state going after the Inauguration is done.

From a story at the Epoch Times:

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said Friday that even after the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20 the city will maintain heightened security in light of last week’s Capitol riots.

Bowser made the remarks during a briefing to discuss the city’s and federal agencies’ security plans ahead of and on Inauguration Day, saying that the level of preparation and execution for the event is “unprecedented.”

The nation’s capital on Friday continued to boost security by shutting down access to iconic landmarks and erecting vehicle checkpoints at a security perimeter surrounding central Washington. Officials have said they expect the number of National Guard troops to rise to 25,000 in the city, a number that could still increase even further.

The heightened security posture follows the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol.

“We cannot allow a recurrence of the chaos and illegal activity that the United States and the world witnessed last week,” Matthew Miller, the head of the Secret Service’s Washington field office, told reporters.

Asked if the extensive security measures around Washington would be reversed after the inauguration, Bowser said, “We are going to go back to a new normal.”

[End]

Ah, the old “new normal” canard. Like the “new normal” Obama gave us of 0% economic growth and permanent American decline. Or Obama’s “new normal” of having the U.S. military actively engaged in 7 different civil wars in North Africa and the Middle East. Or like the “new normal” of having biological males dominate women’s sports. Like Anthony Fauci’s “new normal” of wearing masks and cowering in fear in our living rooms from now on.

Truly, anytime you hear a Democrat politician talking about a new “new normal,” it’s time to run the other way. Muriel Bowser has made her intentions clear, and it is wise to remember that what starts in the nation’s capital ultimately finds its way to all parts of the country.

And hey, look at it from the perspective of the average communist/fascist Democrat mayor: By filling your city with thousands of National Guard troops, you get to defund your own police force while letting the federal taxpayers take up the slack! If you don’t believe that’s part of this thought process, you truly do radically underestimate the depravity level of the average Democrat mayor.

But on the bright side, at least now the Democrats are telling and showing us that walls do work!

Hilariously, as the corrupt news media keeps reminding us, the theme of this inauguration is … wait for it…”America United.”

You just could never make this stuff up.

Also, contemplate this: According to the Democrat Party and the corrupt news media, a wall designed to protect this country’s borders from invasion is baaaaaad, but a wall to prevent ordinary, actual U.S. citizens from petitioning their national government is goooooood. That really, truly is what they believe.

Democrats also think this is good:

Really, they do. Ask any Democrat you know and they will twist themselves into tiny little pretzels of illogic attempting to justify and defend this stuff. It’s truly a remarkable thing to behold, and you can turn it into a great drinking game at parties.

That is all.

More Proof of BLM/Antifa Capitol Riot Involvement Emerges [UPDATED]

It was a classic false flag operation. – In case you still labor under the illusion that BLM/Antifa agitators did not help cause the Capitol riot on January 6, the federal government disagrees. Radical BLM/Antifa professional agitator John E. Sullivan was arrested yesterday for his role in the rioting:

From the story at Fox 13 in Salt Lake City:

OOELE COUNTY, Utah — Utah activist John Sullivan was taken into custody in Provo Thursday, over a week after he shared video of himself inside the U.S. Capitol as protesters breached security.

Sullivan, 26, was charged in federal court with:

  • One count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority
  • One count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds
  • One count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder

The arrest document states Sullivan can be seen outside the Capitol building using a microphone as he told the crowd “we about to burn this s___ down,” “we got to rip Trump out of office… f_______ pull him out of that shit… we ain’t waiting until the next election… we about to go get that m__________.”

While in the Capitol, Sullivan was wearing a ballistics vest and gas mask.

In a video posted to social media last week, Sullivan said he ran into the Capitol building with the others to document what was transpiring.

“I was there to record,” said Sullivan in a video posted to Periscope Friday. “I was there to let people see that situation in the best possible way.”

Sullivan is the founder of Insurgence USA, an activist group formed after the killing of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. He says he voluntarily interviewed with the FBI in Washington, DC on Jan. 7.

[End]

Maria Bartiromo is sharing video on Fox Business this morning of Sullivan and his fellow BLM/Antifa rioters running through the Capitol Building yelling about want to “burn this sh*t down!” Sullivan is also one of the people who took video of the shooting of 14-year Air Force veteran Ashlii Babbitt during the riot.

UPDATE: Oh, yeah, I forgot to include this in the first draft of this piece, but, after he helped execute the Capitol Riot, Sullivan was invited to appear with Anderson Cooper on CNN that same night:

The story doesn’t doesn’t recount it, but Sullivan was one of the organizers of the riot in Provo, Utah in which two innocent car drivers who just happened to be caught in its midst were shot. He was briefly arrested, released by a Marxist judge, and has been running around free ever since. Judging from the pissant charges he is facing in this case and the fact that Washington, DC is controlled by radical Marxist Democrats, he will likely be running around free again today.

As I have said all along to the dismay of many readers, there is no question that thousands of actual Trump supporters did indeed participate in the forced breaching of the outer security perimeter at the Capitol on January 6. There is also no question that dozens, if not hundreds of actual Trump supporters, including the late Ms. Babbitt, did indeed participate in the invasion of the Capitol building itself.

But, as I have also pointed out from Day 1, there is also no question that this riot was a classic false flag operation, led at least in part by professional BLM/Antifa agitators like Sullivan.

And the troubling news is that there is another obvious false flag setup brewing on Sunday. The FBI and its plants in the fake news media have been pushing the narrative all week that the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence law enforcement agency expects “violent riots” to take place on January 17. The claim is that the same “Trump supporters” who organized the Capitol riot on January 6 are now organizing these “violent riots” to take place in all 50 state Capitols that day.

Here’s an excerpt from a typical fake media story at MSN.com:

The FBI is expecting armed protests at state capitols across the country, according to tweets from ABC News correspondent Aaron Katersky.

On Monday, Katersky tweeted that ABC had received a bulletin from the FBI stating that the protests are being planned and are expected to begin January 16 and continue through at least January 20 – Inauguration Day.

He also tweeted “The FBI has ‘received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,’ according to a bulletin obtained by @ABC”

The news comes less than a week after violence erupted in the nation’s capital on Wednesday as congress was set to count the Electoral College votes, confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump.

[End]

This is an obvious setup, designed to accomplish two goals: 1)To discourage any and all supporters of President Trump from exercising their right to assemble and peacefully express their beliefs, and 2) to set up a narrative that will lay the blame at their feet for any violence professional BLM/Antifa rioters like Sullivan wish to foment on Sunday.

Because deception is the FBI’s stock in trade, its core competency as an organization, and has been for many decades now.

If you are planning to participate in a peaceful protest against this blatantly stolen election on Sunday, keep your head on a swivel and be ready to loudly identify and shun the professional agitators in your midst, because they will certainly be there with you.

Just a Reminder: The Democrats Telegraphed Their Plot to Steal the Election

I noticed that a piece I wrote back in early September is getting a bunch of hits today. Curious to understand why, I went back and read the piece, which was headlined…

The Media is Brainwashing You to Accept a Stolen Election

After reading it, I now get the renewed attention: It’s because the piece predicts pretty much every detail of the Democrat plot to steal the election and the aftermath we have experienced since.

Here is the text of that piece, dated September 2, in its entirety:

Axios took the lead yesterday in the ongoing campaign to brainwash the U.S. public into accepting a stolen election this November. This coordinated campaign between the communist Democrat Party and the corrupt news media has been ongoing for several months now, and it becomes increasingly transparent over time.

On Tuesday, Axios ran a story quoting a representative of the Bloomberg-funded Democrat firm called Hawkfish, laying out the scenario the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda is attempting to set up for the November Elections. The scenario envisions a socially explosive situation created by the Democrats. The first part of it involves President Trump holding a huge lead in both the popular vote and the Electoral College when we all trudge off to bed on Election Night. But that lead won’t hold as Democrat vote counters in Blue and Red states around the country “find” boxes and boxes filled with “mail-in ballots” that magically contain the number of votes Biden needs to overtake Trump’s Election Day lead.

A top Democratic data and analytics firm told “Axios on HBO” it’s highly likely that President Trump will appear to have won — potentially in a landslide — on election night, even if he ultimately loses when all the votes are counted.

Why this matters: Way more Democrats will vote by mail than Republicans, due to fears of the coronavirus, and it will take days if not weeks to tally these. This means Trump, thanks to Republicans doing almost all of their voting in person, could hold big electoral college and popular vote leads on election night.

  • Imagine America, with its polarization and misinformation, if the vote tally swings wildly toward Joe Biden and Trump loses days later as the mail ballots are counted.
  • That is what this group, Hawkfish, which is funded by Michael Bloomberg and also does work for the Democratic National Committee and pro-Biden Super PACs, is warning is a very real, if not foreordained, outcome.

What they’re saying: Hawkfish CEO Josh Mendelsohn calls the scenario a “red mirage.”

  • “We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump,” he said.
  • “When every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day, which will be some day after Election Day, it will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage,” Mendelsohn said. “It looked like Donald Trump was in the lead and he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted.”

[End]

So, here we see Axios, via this Democrat front group, attempting to normalize the literal destruction of the American election process as we have always known it. The destruction of America’s legitimate election process has long been a goal of the Democrat Party, and it obviously believes this is the year it will be able to consolidate the plan, using fear over the China virus as the catalyst.

The key to the Democrat/media plan is the destruction of the expectation of having the votes counted on Election Day, as has always been the tradition in the United States, or at least had been the tradition until 2000, when the Democrat effort to steal the presidency in Florida resulted in two months of uncertainty over the outcome.

It is a fact that no Democrat presidential candidate has conceded an election on Election Day since 1988. Think about that: that is 8 election cycles ago. If that is not an aggressive effort to de-legitimize the democratic process, what is?

Now, there is no legitimate reason why every mail-in ballot should not be in and counted within 3 days of Election Day, yet we see Democrat governors all over the country arbitrarily extending the envisioned time frame to as much as a full month. Why should that be needed? If the ballot is properly postmarked by Election Day, shouldn’t the U.S. postal service be able to deliver it within just 2 days? If not, why not? It’s not like they have anything else to deal with other than junk mail these days.

Obviously, the effort to extend the vote-counting period for as long as possible is so that Democrat officials in places like Broward and Palm Beach Counties in Florida, in Detroit, in Philadelphia, in Columbus, Ohio and other key Democrat-controlled counties and cities in swing states have as much time as possible to keep “finding” additional boxes of ballots until they’re able to get their addled candidate over the finish line.

Try to imagine the level of unrest that will exist in this country as these Democrat efforts to steal the election are taking place. If you want to create conditions for a real, shooting civil war in America – as the Democrats have obviously been working towards this summer – it is hard to imagine a more perfect scenario than such a blatant attempt to steal the presidency.

But make no mistake about it: This is the goal of the Democrat party. They’re not really even trying to hide it anymore.

[End]

So, as you can see, everything we’ve seen take place related to this election was entirely predictable, mainly because the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media were projecting their plans publicly all along.

But now that the steal has been successfully completed, you are not only being brainwashed to meekly accept the outcome; the media, Big Tech platforms and the DC Swamp UniParty are actively going about punishing you if you don’t.

Next time somebody tells you that “it’s a free country,” take a moment to argue the point. Because it isn’t anymore. Like the election, the Democrats and the media stole that from us right out in broad daylight.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: What Did Pelosi and McConnell Know and When Did They Know It?

Let’s start with a little DC Swamp humor found on Twitter yesterday:

Image may contain: 2 people, closeup, text that says 'D 1 5 MANURE WOMANURE'

It’s just perfect, really.

Coverage of the DC Swamp UniParty’s second sham impeachment of President Donald Trump can be found here and here.

The Little Menace to Society pushes the goal posts even further down the field. – If you’re planning any actual vacation trips or attending events at the local theater anytime in 2021, you might want to cool your heels on that action.

The little menace to American society Anthony Fauci is already pushing the next virus:

Well, of course. The “new strain” of the virus supposedly imported from England hasn’t taken hold of the public’s imagination, so now Fauci switches to the tactic of claiming America has somehow developed a completely unique strain of its own.

Just accept it: The Swamp wants to keep you cowering in your homes and wearing masks forever. This madness will not end until it is ended by force. And one of the myriad disastrous consequences of the fraudulent election we’ve just experienced is that the people who want to keep you in that sorry state will soon be in control of the armed forces of the United States.

It’s cleanup time at Twitter, everyone! – A week after his company coordinated in monopolistic fashion with other Big Tech giants to de-platform President Donald Trump and destroy Parler, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was out on the hustings trying to do some half-assed cleanup because Twitter’s stock is tanking.

From a story at DailyWire:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey acknowledged in a statement on Wednesday evening that his company’s decision to ban President Donald Trump from the platform set a “dangerous” precedent and said that it was ultimately a “failure” by the company to “promote healthy conversation.”

Dorsey’s remarks come after the company has taken a hit in its value since banning the president last week, following a riot that broke out at the U.S. Capitol.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter,” Dorsey wrote. “Was this correct? I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.”

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” he continued. “Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation.”

Dorsey claimed that the company did not coordinate with other tech companies with its decision to ban the president and that other companies either made their own choices or “were emboldened by the actions of others.”

[End]

All of that is, of course, an outright lie, especially the part about not coordinating with the other Big Tech firms. This is just the CEO of a major corporation reading the talking points handed to him by his enormous staff of talking points monkeys in an effort to prevent the company from continuing to bleed billions of dollars in market value every day.

Sadly, he’ll probably succeed in that effort.

I’d rather have a prostate exam than watch this:

Futile Gesture of the Week Award goes to…

Talk about a waste of time and energy – that effort has about as much chance of succeeding as this year’s Houston Rockets.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder – Just a reminder that, on January 5, the day before the riot took place at the U.S. Capitol when the small contingent of Capitol Police guarding the building were overwhelmed by a crowd of thousands, Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser did this:

Oh.

So, as you continue to hear and see the corrupt news media claim that President Trump delayed calling out the National Guard to help secure the Capitol, know that the communist Democrat Mayor of the City had specifically and publicly discouraged making any such move just 24 hours earlier.

Everyone in the nation’s capitol knew that upwards of a million people were going to descend on the city on January 6 as congress debated whether or not to accept the clearly fraudulent electoral vote, and that professional agitators would certainly be in their midst. The FBI and Department of Justice admitted on Monday that they had been monitoring social media platforms and were aware in advance of plans by some agitators on both the left and the right to mount an effort to storm the Capitol. As is the habit of the raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it chose to do nothing more than send out the most rudimentary, standard warnings to the Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials.

There was no reason whatsoever for the Capitol building to have been left so lightly-guarded, other than the Mayor of DC’s refusal to beef up the Capitol Police in advance. We do not know right now if Mayor Bowser had been made aware of the FBI’s warning before January 6 or not, nor do we know what Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Pelosi knew in advance of the riot.

Given that Pelosi has now staged a second impeachment scam based on the riot, and McConnell has expressed his own support of that effort, it is crucial that we find out whether they were warned in advance of the threat and chose to do nothing to prevent it, since that in and of itself might amount to at best an act of criminal negligence.

But you can be sure that it will be a cold day in hell before anyone at the FBI or DOJ will deliver that information to the public. After all, the interests of the DC Swamp UniParty are paramount. You little people can go pound sand.

Wait! Who’s unhinged and out of control?

Guest piece by Karen Kataline

The deep state and the corrupt media can’t count or report votes fairly but they expect us to believe this poll:

Majority of Americans want Trump removed immediately after U.S. Capitol violence (Reuters/Ipsos poll)

Snap judgements are the stock in-trade of the media and the Left. They are deliberately pushed to manipulate the public into believing that “everyone” agrees with their latest politically motivated idea, in the hopes that “everyone” will.

Their tactics advance and elevate collectivism, mob rule (when it’s their mob) and dismantle our treasured American tenants like Due Process and the notion that citizens are innocent until proven guilty. There’s also the added bonus of smearing their opponents and further dividing the country.

We are brazenly told that we must accept whatever they tell us. Anyone who dares to question them will be ostracized, censored, and destroyed along with all the others who have been used as public examples.

These powerful intimidation tactics are what Fascism really looks like. They work best on weak-minded individuals.

It should surprise no one that the same Leftists and their various factions have been working to weaken the “collective” American mind for decades so that it will surrender more easily to this sort of oppression and persecution. How easy was it to coerce most people in a country of 330+ million people to put rags on their faces with no end in sight for ever taking them off?

Now, we are supposed to believe that it’s sane for the great victors in the election who are poised to control all three branches of our federal government, to consider it their highest priority to oust the President in his last week and a half.  Don’t remind them that he has been there for four years.

The same players spied, lied and tried to oust him through his entire Presidency with baseless charges of which they themselves are being revealed to be guilty. Talk about not accepting the results of an election!

With no investigation whatsoever, they demand that we believe their wild assumptions that Trump incited violence on January 6.

Those who were interested watched his entire speech.  It’s available on YouTube, at least it used to be. He did no such thing but it doesn’t matter.  Those who have already made up their minds aren’t interested in deciding for themselves.

Many more are cheering America’s new and unprecedented censorship of political “dissidents.” They are utterly clueless that they are helping to dissolve their own rights to free expression.

Why is the Deep State so desperate to remove Donald Trump in what they insist is the last week and a half of his Presidency? Do they care that there is video evidence of “protestors” being led into the building by what appear to be Capitol Police who guided them where to go?  They’re interested about as much as they are in investigating voter fraud.

Does it matter that at least some if not most of those protestors are already alleged to have been Antifa “agents provocateurs” about whom they were briefed that same morning?  True or not, they have no interest in finding out. That should tell any reasonable person plenty.

If Antifa’s primary mission was to perform a false flag operation to hand the media and the left the needed faux moral outrage to smear Trump and his millions of supporters, they believe they have succeeded. We’ll see.

Who appoints themselves judge, jury and executioner of 70+ million people for the actions of a few no matter who they turn out to be?  Bigots do that, and these appear to be some pretty scared bigots.

What about the riots we witnessed throughout the summer with blatant encouragement from Leftist politicians? We have the video, unless YouTube and others scrap that too.

Their grand silence spoke volumes when cities burned, historic monuments were destroyed and innocent people were killed. Their crocodile tears now are more indicative of desperation than moral outrage.

Who has consistently exhibited unhinged and out of control behavior?  It’s obvious that it’s the same finger-pointers who have been obsessed with destroying Donald Trump from the beginning. Maxine Waters wasn’t joking when she called for Trump’s impeachment before he was inaugurated.

Is there a 25th Amendment for ousting the Deep State?  I believe there are those who are still working on it.

Monday News Roundup: Clyburn Signals Impeachment Polling Badly; More Senate RINOs Pile On

This whole impeachment thing is obviously not polling well for them. – As is always the case, Democrats make every decision based on polls and focus groups. This is nothing new, it’s how they have functioned as a party since the advent of the Clinton national plague in 1992.

So, why would anyone think this latest nonsense about impeaching a President who has 9 days remaining in office would be any different? Since last Thursday, all the Democrat chatter has been about kicking the process in the House off when the members convene today. That still would not allow enough time for a Senate trial and conviction prior to January 20 – which, by the way, is not going to happen in any event – but it would be plenty of time for the Adam Schiffs and Gerrold Nadlers and James Clyburns of the world to demagogue the matter for the TV cameras and then get the articles of impeachment over to the Senate before inauguration day.

But a funny thing happened Sunday afternoon. Clyburn, the third-ranking member of San Fran Nans leadership junta in the House, floated the idea during an appearance on Fake Jake Tapper’s CNN show of holding up sending over whatever articles of impeachment he and his band of thugs come up with until after China Joe Potato Head Biden’s 100th day in office. That of course is assuming China Joe remains in office for 100 days, which is not cinch if you know what I mean.

From a story at The Hill:

“We will take the vote that we should take in the House. And [Pelosi] will make the determination as to when is the best time to get that vote and get the managers appointed and move that legislation over to the Senate,” Clyburn added.

“Let’s give President-elect Biden the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running,” Clyburn added. “And maybe we will send the articles some time after that.”

Clyburn went on to say he expected the House to have its final articles of impeachment sometime Monday and take floor action on them by Tuesday or Wednesday. While Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) has written a single article for incitement to insurrection in relation to last week’s deadly Capitol riots, Clyburn said House leaders are also exploring articles related to the president pressuring Georgia officials to change election results.

[End]

“…maybe we will send the articles some time after that.” And if the polling still isn’t going well for them, they’ll never send the articles over to the House. Because that’s how the Democrats operate.

Brain Dead Op/Ed of the Week, by Juan Williams:

Again, last Wednesday was a riot, not a “coup attempt.” If it had been a coup attempt, all those National Guard troops who the President called in would have been charged with arresting members of congress, not with dispersing the rioters and securing the scene.

This is not hard, yet most Americans will sadly fall for the Big Lie.

Nothing to see here, move along… – Meanwhile, as Juan and the rest of the corrupt news media were pushing the Big Lie about last Wednesday, here is a sample of what was happening around the rest of the country.

New York City:

San Diego:

Portland:

“Mostly peaceful.” *sigh*

Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day. – Just a reminder that, during last Summer’s BLM/Antifa protests in Washington, DC, there was a definite air of insurrection in the air. A national landmark Church was burned. Stores were torched and looted. More than 100 Secret Service, National Guard and police officers were injured. The President was moved by the Secret Service to a bunker in the basement of the White House in order to keep him safe.

On that same night, Kamala Harris and other Democrat members of congress came out to join the BLM/Antifa riot. Joe Biden and the media mocked the President for moving into the bunker. The next day, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser dedicated a park to the rioters and had the BLM motto painted on 17th street. There were few arrests, and no one in the media or in congress talked about having Harris or any other member of congress who supported the rioters removed from office for their obvious insurrection against the federal government.

This concludes your Friendly Recent History Reminder of the Day.

And for those of you still filling my in-box with claims that last Wednesday wasn’t a riot at all… – Well, ‘splain this one to me:

If that doesn’t look like a riot to you, then go somewhere else. Thanks.

Useless Parliamentary Suggestion of the Week comes from Ohio’s Rob Portman:

Dear Sen. Portman: Any “blue ribbon panel” involving Democrats will simply work to lie about all the massive fraud that took place in November’s election and make the fraud processes permanent going forward. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Utterly spineless.

Finally, over in the Senate, the RINOs are forming a stampede. – Since Alaska RINO Lisa Murkowski kicked off the “Trump should resign” mantra late last week, her fellow Trump haters in the Senate have begun to form up their own pro-impeachment/25th amendment/forced resignation caucus. It hasn’t yet reached the critical mass that would be needed to get to a 2/3rds vote in the senate for conviction and removal, but that won’t keep them from trying.

From a story at The Hill:

GOP lawmakers are wrestling with whether to stick with President Trump between now and Jan. 20 as members of his Cabinet consider resigning or invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska became the first Republican senator to call on Trump to resign, declaring on Friday afternoon that “he has caused enough damage.”

“I want him to resign. I want him out,” she told the Anchorage Daily News.

A day later, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who is retiring at the end of 2022, said Trump’s actions rise to the level of impeachment.

“I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” Toomey told Fox News during an interview.

Murkowski and Toomey’s comments put pressure on Republican centrists, such as Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Susan Collins (Maine), who as of Saturday night had not addressed whether Trump should step down or be removed from office.

Romney, the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump on an article of impeachment in February, accused Trump of inciting a mob of supporters to storm the Capitol while Congress was counting the vote of the Electoral College on Wednesday.

Rep. Garrett Graves (R-La.) on Friday called for Trump to step back from the duties of his office, though he said he did not support impeaching the president or invoking the 25th Amendment.

“He effectively needs to resign. And what I mean by that is, effectively, he will not be out there talking, speaking, wielding the full authority and power of the White House, maybe even technically finding a way to hand over the keys to [Vice President] Pence,” he said.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), a prominent conservative and potential presidential candidate in 2024, said Thursday he would consider voting to convict Trump on an article of impeachment — something he voted against less than a year ago when House Democrats impeached Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstructing justice.

“If they come together and have a process, I will definitely consider whatever articles they might move, because as I told you I believe the president has disregarded his oath of office,” Sasse said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

[End]

Murkowski. Romney. Collins. Sasse. Graves. Toomey. Keep a list of these people, folks. Never forget their actions this week. They detest you every bit as much as any Democrat does.

That is all.

Who’s to Blame for the Storming of the Capitol Building? Everyone.

US Capitol building invaded for first time since War of ...

So, where to begin? I suppose the first thing to say is that none of what happened in Washington DC on Wednesday could have come as a surprise to anyone, and there is plenty of blame to be spread around to everyone.

There is blame to be laid at the feet of President Donald Trump for giving a speech to an enormous crowd of Americans who are rightfully angry at what they see as an election that has been stolen from them and their President. Certainly, the President could have ended his speech with an admonition to go in peace, and he didn’t. He is the President of the United States, after all, and he needs to be willing to take responsibility for his own actions.

The President had to know that any violence that took place would be blamed on himself by the media, by the Democrats and by the Swamp creatures in his own Republican Party, regardless of who committed it. It matters not to Trump’s detractors that the ring leaders of yesterday’s assault on the federal Capitol Building were obvious Antifa: The only thing that matters is that several thousand Trump supporters when through the barricades around the Capitol with them.

There is plenty of blame to be laid at the feet of those people as well. We spent the entire summer and most of the fall arguing that rioting and violence is never a justifiable response to injustice as we watched an array of formerly great American cities be looted and burned on national television by Antifa and BLM rioter while the talking heads of cable news assured us it was all “mostly peaceful.” We ridiculed those talking head for that while arguing that these were not protesters, they were domestic terrorists.

Well guess what? You don’t get to argue that when the rioters are the opposition and then forget all about it when the rioters are made up mostly of your allies. Life doesn’t work that way for rational people of good will.

Upon waking up this morning, the radio station I listen to was playing a tape of some NBA basketball player who was absurdly being asked what he thought about yesterday’s events by some doofus sports reporter, and his answer was “Why do y’all keep calling them protesters? F*** that, man, they’re terrorists.”

Sound familiar? Yes, that guy’s a raging hypocrite since he no doubt spend the entire summer and fall referring to the people burning down the local WalMart and looting the Dick’s Sporting Goods next door as heroes.

But here’s the deal: This works both ways.

There is no question that several thousand actual, real Trump supporters breached those barricades around the Capitol Building along with the obvious Antifa agitators. Those people don’t get a pass here. They can’t in a civil society.

But here’s the other side of this: Take a look at this photo:

Image may contain: night and outdoor

That’s Washington, DC. Not from yesterday, but from May 31, 2020. That’s what Antifa and BLM domestic terrorists did to the nation’s capital just 7 months ago, and we all remember how the Democrats and their pals in the corrupt news media portrayed that day, twisting themselves into pretzels of illogic and dementia as they praised the “peaceful protesters” who were “speaking out against injustice” even as cars and buildings burned behind the intrepid fake reporter on the ground.

Those Democrats and corrupt journalists are the exact same people who last night and today have been venting their righteous anger at the President and the Trump supporters who participated in the events at the Capitol Building. If you say they are raging hypocrites, well, you’re right, no question about it.

But if you’re not at the same time condemning the thousands of Trump supporters who really did breach the barricades around the perimeter of the Capitol grounds, then you’re a hypocrite, too. You can’t run around wearing t-shirts that proudly proclaim “Back the Blue” then look the other way when at least two Capitol Policemen had to be taken away from the scene in ambulances. Those folks are Americans with families just like we all are, and they were there just trying to do their jobs.

Joe Biden is also to blame. He came out as the riot was ending and read a speech expressing his own righteous indignation about the riot, saying violence is never the answer and pleading for peace and civility. It was a speech that would have been wonderful if he had had the courage the deliver it 7 months ago as Minneapolis and Chicago and New York City and Washington and Portland and Seattle were being burned and looted by members of his own party, but that didn’t happen, did it? Delivered yesterday, it just rang hollow as it came from a hollow sock puppet who long ago surrendered any moral authority to even speak on the subject.

One of the biggest problems we have now as a society is that there is no one we can trust to tell us the truth. The mainstream news media has invested so much of its time and energy gaslighting the public over the last five years that we cannot believe that anything they report is actually accurate. The same is true of our politicians in both parties and, sadly, of the people who staff the raging dumpster fire of incompetence and deceit that is the FBI and the Department of Justice.

We certainly can’t trust Congress, which very predictably used the riot as an excuse to just speed up the process of declaring China Joe Potato Head Biden as the next POTUS, with Vice President Mike Pence using his gavel to get the deal done. It was all very carefully choreographed, with RINO’s like Mitt Romney getting standing ovations from the Democrats after they spoke.

Naturally, the media started reporting stories based on “sources” that Trump’s cabinet officials were working behind the scenes to build consensus for having him removed from office using the 25th Amendment. You should expect similar messages to come from members of congress today.

In fact, you should probably prepare yourselves for the possibility of that actually happening, given that Republicans like Romney and Elizabeth Cheney would no doubt support the notion. With his speech yesterday, President Trump gave the Swamp a rationale for finally getting what it has pursued endlessly for the last four years: a soft coup d’etat on his presidency.

That is all.

Do These Nitwits Look Like Trump Supporters To You? [UPDATED]

These are the clowns who led the storming of the House Chamber today and took the dais for awhile:

Image may contain: 3 people

Here’s the clown wearing the fur hat with horns at the dais:

Image may contain: one or more people, people sitting, people on stage, table and indoor

Also, note the tattoo on the hand of the clown dressed in the tan sweatshirt:

Image may contain: one or more people

How many Trump supporters have you ever seen with a modified hammer and sickle Antifa tattoo on their left hand?

UPDATE: Oh, hey, horn guy was photographed at a BLM/Antifa rally last summer:

I know, shocking, right?

Riiiiiigggghhhht.

These are not Trump supporters, as the media is uniformly claiming. They are obvious, stereotypical Antifa, who were instructed by organizers to infiltrate today’s protest and dress in this manner:

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says '@KatherineGarth2 Replying to THE_OG_G_Mand @MeidasTouch But just in case. spoke to my Antifa operative in Portland and she said the ones going to DC are going to wear camouflage, cut-offs, and Trump 125 paraphernalia to blend in, but turning their MAGA hats backward for indentification, so feel free to pass along. @onehappyfish 1h ago #millionmagamarch 10, 2020 Twitter #trump2 #holdtheline #conservativehypehouse 23'

That’s what is really happening here. The real Trump supporters marched peacefully down Pennsylvania Avenue and then either milled around or proceeded to disperse.

As is always the case, nothing you are being told by TV news is true. Literally none of it.

As I type this, China Joe Biden is on TV condemning these people under the pretense they are Trump people. You will note that he never one time made any similar statement at any point over the past four years condemning the thousands of incidents of Antifa/BLM violence and destruction.

That failure by not just Biden, but every Democrat and media outlet in America is what leads directly to what we are seeing today. An absolutely inevitable outcome that could have all been prevented had anyone in the Democrat Party delivered a similar speech at any point since their Party literally created and funded Antifa in the wake of the 2016 election.

Anyone who believes that Biden now has some sort of moral authority to calm the waters is living in a dream world.

Pence Will Not Object to Fraudulent Biden Electors [UPDATED]

Well, I do hate to say I told you so, but I did tell you this would happen:

Pence released his statement moments after President Trump had delivered his speech to the enormous throng of supporters in Washington DC today. Again, the Veep didn’t really have a choice here: He simply does not possess any such authority under the Constitution or the law. As I pointed out last week, if any vice president truly possessed such powers, John F. Kennedy, George W. Bush and Donald Trump would have never served in the presidency.

Meanwhile, some really angry people are doing this at the Capitol Building:

Are they Trump supporters, as the media will undoubtedly claim? Or are they Antifa?

Good question. If they’re Trump supporters, they’re doing their movement terrible harm.

UPDATE: And here is the result of this insanity – multiple capital police injured by the idiot rioters:

Stop this madness, now.

Democrats/Media Sure are Worried About Trump Remaining in Office

Today’s ongoing Democrat/media-created uproar about yet another completely appropriate conversation President Trump conducted in December with the utterly corrupt Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffernsperger shows that those on the left are much more worried about the President ultimately prevailing in his challenges to the clearly fraudulent election results than they pretend to be.

Some of the more extreme leftists, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are already claiming that the call, in which the President clearly urges the worthless Raffensperger to look for the needed number of fraudulent votes to overturn the fraudulent vote count, somehow constitute grounds for impeachment, a la the completely appropriate call between Trump and the president of the Ukraine. Others, like pea-brained California cong. Ted Lieu, are calling for DOJ to open a criminal investigation:

Meanwhile, Twitter has the subject “trending” with this description: “Trump pressures Georgia Secretary of State to ‘find’ Trump votes in the state, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post”.

All of this abject nonsense, as GOP Cong. Mo Brooks said on NewsMax TV this morning:

Is it a distraction, as Cong. Brooks says? Well, probably. The Democrats and their media toadies do love to focus on topics that are extraneous to the real, pressing issues of the day. You know, like the obvious, blatant and massive election fraud the Democrat perpetrated in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Arizona.

But I think it may also be more than that. I think the Democrats remain concerned that the President might ultimately find a way to prevail in this fight, and they do have good reason for that concern. When you have more than 100 Republican members of the House and a dozen GOP senators lined up to object to the congressional certification of the electoral vote on January 6, that’s a cause for concern.

Even if you believe, as I do, that those objections will only delay the inevitable outcome on Wednesday, they will result in just one more day on which the public is made aware that something really bad took place in those states named above on Election Night and the days that followed.

But if Democrats believe their planned installation of a demented Chinese puppet into the Oval office on January 20 is inevitable, why the absurd rhetoric about impeachment and DOJ investigation of an innocuous phone call between two Republicans? Why do they and their corrupt media toadies feel the need to maintain the ridiculous pretense that election fraud just doesn’t happen? If they’re so certain that that’s a true contention, why oppose Ted Cruz’s proposal for a 10-day emergency audit of the vote with accusations of sedition?

I honestly don’t believe sitting here today that President Trump has any magic bullets up his sleeve that will enable him to prevail in his efforts to overturn the recorded outcome of the election. The deck is obviously stacked against him, including at the Supreme Court, which has gone to extraordinary lengths to avoid taking any role in this.

But really, the behavior we are seeing from the Democrats and their agents at America’s Nazi-style national media outlets is not the behavior of people who are confident of victory. It’s the behavior of people who know they’ve been caught and are scared to death of losing, and you have to wonder why it is happening.

That is all.

One Way or Another, January 2021 Will be Historic

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

It’s difficult to recognize extraordinary when you’re living in it.

Anyone who is the least bit curious about which way this country will go is eagerly, anxiously, or fearfully looking forward to Wednesday, January 6, 2021 and whatever will follow.

People who often agreed are split from one another. New alliances are being formed. We are in a major shift. The fact that some people don’t or can’t see it is part of the fundamental disagreement.

I’ve made no secret of what I think will ultimately happen. I have bets that Donald Trump will be inaugurated as President for the next four years.  It’s amazing how many people I know have given up hope of that happening.

Others have called for Trump to concede. That has been particularly perplexing, but among the things Donald Trump’s presence has ushered in, is his ability to expose who people really are and always were.

He will continue to do that as he and his team attempt to make their case for voter fraud as the Left and it’s minions do everything they can to tamp down their ability to be heard so that citizens themselves can make up their own minds.

It would seem that a side that doesn’t want it’s opponent’s case to be heard is in the weakest position, but somehow, what is obvious is obfuscated today, and what is preposterous is accepted as truth.

I have continued to ponder why any conservative would call for Trump to concede at precisely the most important moment in his stunning tenure thus far. This will be the decisive moment an they’re bailing?

Is it because these politicians and pundits don’t see or agree with the “do or die” situation we are in?  I wonder if those with the most political experience have the hardest time recognizing a completely unique situation because that experience clouds their judgement rather than informs it.

This alone doesn’t make me correct, but it does seem to be a major dividing line among people of good will.

I believe this is the “do or die” moment. Communists will either strike the final blow to America, or Donald Trump against all odds, will save our country and by extension, the free world from tyranny.

Many might think that sounds “overly dramatic” but there are genuinely dramatic times in life and in the life of a country and this is one of them.  We have been lulled into believing that times of great historic significance only happened 200+ years ago. Not so.

We have crossed the Rubicon into tyranny already.  We have Leftist/progressive Mayors, Governors and un-elected bureaucrats shutting down businesses and/or telling them how to run them which will lead to their slow death.  It’s tough for people to admit that this is exactly what they want but what other conclusion can one come to?

Said Leftists are systematically robbing The People of all five pillars of the First Amendment, and will do so with and all the rest. Almost every institution or sphere of influence in our country has been infiltrated by those unfaithful to the Constitution.  Other well-funded groups who hate this country continue to be eager to assist them.

Officials at the highest levels in every branch of our government have been bribed, blackmailed or otherwise compromised.  If this isn’t a crisis, what would one look like?

Trump is NOT fighting for his re-election, which he most likely won in a landslide, out of ego.  He knows all the above and more.

I believe that this moment is the real reason he ran in the first place  He loves this country. He wants to leave it intact and secure for his grandchildren and yours. If he can accomplish what he came to Washington to do and go up against this massive amount of evil and corruption and win he will go down as among the greatest Presidents who ever lived.

This will be a historic week and a historic month.

Happy New Year, and let true justice be done in 2021.

Saturday News Roundup: The Senate UniParty Overrides Trump Veto as Democrat-run Cities Fall Apart

The Democans and Republicrats who make up the UniParty in the U.S. Senate were back in action on New Year’s Day. – They voted 81-13 to override President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The President had chosen to veto the bill because it did not contain language that would repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, the clause that protects the Big Tech companies from being subjected to anti-trust enforcement over their anti-American censorship actions.

The 13 members who voted to sustain the veto included: Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), John Kennedy (R-La.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.). Every other Republicrat and Democan present voted to override and thus allow Big Tech to continue business as usual.

Within an hour of the vast majority of its membership voting to take this action and do nothing to police Big Tech, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NSRC), which helps to fund GOP senate campaigns, issued this clueless and unintentionally hilarious tweet:

Oh, gee. Too bad, so sad, dudes. You would think at some point these clueless jackasses would figure out why it is that so many millions of conservatives detest them and their RINO members every bit as much as we detest their Democrat colleagues. But some people are very, very slow learners.

So, the defense contractors will continue receiving their lard, as will the foreign governments who will receive hundreds of millions in benefits from this bill, and the members of the Senate Armed Services and Senate Foreign Relations committees will continue to receive their largess from those countries and from the lobbyists who represent those defense contractors.

Because that is how the Swamp works.

Hey, it only took 150 or so days of riots for Commie Ted to figure it all out. – Communist Democrat Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler woke up on New Year’s morning to the sudden realization that the Antifa anarchists who have been teaming with BLM anarchists to destroy his city for the last six months are – gasp! – not his friends. Many, who could have seen that one coming?

I swear I’m not making this up:

The Oregonian quotes Wheeler as stating that “We need more accountability and we need to hold people responsible for their criminal conduct.” Oh, you don’t say, Ted.

The Oregonian further reports:

Wheeler said he will organize a meeting with local and state law enforcement as soon as next week to determine how best to respond to “anarchist violence” in the city, and he called for the state Legislature to pass a law in its upcoming regular session to increase penalties for people who repeatedly vandalize property.

The mayor also said Portland might need legislators to change state laws to allow increased city surveillance, although he provided no specifics when pressed for details.

[End]

Hey, here’s a thought: Maybe the Oregon legislature should pass a law to exact penalties on communist Democrat mayors who intentionally tie the hands of their law enforcement officials and refuse to allow them to use all the tools already at their disposal to put these rioters down before they grow out of control. Let’s never forget that, in addition to being Portland’s Mayor, Wheeler is also the City’s police commissioner.

Portland and other big, Democrat-controlled cities definitely do need “more accountability” and they definitely do need to “hold people responsible for their criminal conduct.” But that accountability needs to start at the top of the pyramid or none of it will have impact or meaning. In Portland, Ted Wheeler sits firmly at the top of that criminal pyramid.

Meanwhile, in New York City… – Speaking of communist Democrat mayors who sit atop their city’s criminal pyramid, The New York Daily News has noticed the results of this year’s defunding the police policy actions by The Big Doofus, Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Here’s an excerpt from that article:

On top of a pandemic that took more than 25,000 lives, New York City endured a soul-crushing crime surge in 2020 — a 97% jump in shootings and a 45% surge in murders.

The NYPD released the sobering preliminary year-end stats Friday, eager to turn the page on a tally that recorded more shootings from mid-May through mid-September than in all of 2019.

When the ball fell in near-empty Times Square, the NYPD counted 462 murders across the city in 2020 — 143 more than in 2019.

Shootings were also up — cops counted 1,531 shooting incidents across the five boroughs, 754 more than in 2019, officials said. In those incidents, bullets hit 1,868 people. The city hasn’t been such alarming violence since 2006, when 1,565 shootings were reported, according to Police Commissioner Dermot Shea.

[End]

Note that the actions by the Mayor and Democrat-controlled city council to defund the NYPD by more than $150 million had exactly the same motivation as Ted Wheeler’s mindless malfeasance in Portland: To appease the radical anarchists and Marxists who make up the Antifa/BLM domestic terrorist complex.

Millions of Americans abandoned Democrat-controlled cities like Portland and New York and Seattle and Minneapolis and Philadelphia and Newark during 2020, most of them moving to Red states like Texas and Florida. The corrupt news media – like NBC in the report linked here – want you to think it’s all about COVID restrictions and nothing more.

But the truth is it’s also about confiscatory tax policies in blue states and about security. The truth is that these communist Democrat mayors all over the country have jointly decided to abandon their duties to properly protect the public at the behest of the Antifa/BLM complex, which are, after all, the militarized wing of the Democrat Party.

That’s reality, and if you live in a Democrat-controlled city, the negative consequences of that reality are going to come home to roost on your doorstep sooner or later if you remain there.

The best advice for you to take is to get the hell out of those cities as soon as you possibly can, because none of this is going to get any better.

That is all.

Potential Game Changers on the Election Challenge Front Today

After a couple of weeks of precious little real movement at all, some significant developments took place today on the Trump election challenge front.

First, Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) let it be known via a tweet that he will file a formal challenge to the certification of the Electoral votes by both houses of congress scheduled to take place on January 6:

Although several GOP members of the House of Representatives have stated that they would also challenge the certification, Hawley becomes the first Republican senator to make a similar commitment.

“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,” Hawley said in a statement.

“And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act,” Hawley added.

Hawley’s commitment ensures that a formal debate and roll call vote will now have to be held on the certification, eliminating the possibility of the clearly fraudulent electoral vote being certified via unanimous consent. While the group of GOP representatives – led by Alabama’s Mo Brooks – have been lining up to object for over a week now, they needed at least one senator to file a similar objection in order to force the debate and vote.

This will only be the third time congress has had such a debate and vote since 1887, according to the Congressional Research Service, the previous two times coming in 1969 and 2005, two times in which Democrats forced the process to take place following wins by Richard Nixon and George W. Bush. Hawley’s announcement comes as a direct affront to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had urged his senators not to take the action, and to the RINO contingent among the Senate GOP caucus, who are anxious to get the Senate back into go-along-to-get-along money making mode.

Ultimately, barring major movement on other fronts, Hawley’s action is not expected to change the final outcome of the certification process, but it will at least force each and every member in both houses to put their names on the record one way or the other. That in and of itself is a positive development, and will allow conservative Republicans to identify members of the House and Senate who need to face stiff primary challenges in coming election cycles.

Speaking of movement on other fronts… – We may have had a possible game-changing moment take place in Georgia today, where a subcommittee of the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee held a formal hearing on election fraud that included live witness testimony and presentation of hard evidence.

One of the witnesses was analyst Jovan Pulitzer, a digital expert who explained to the Committee how all Dominion machines are in fact interconnected with the Internet despite the company’s consistent denials, and that he was in fact connected via computer to one such machine in Fulton County as he was speaking:

It is unlawful under Georgia law – and in most, if not all other states – for vote tabulating machines to be linked to the Internet or networked with one another.

Pulitzer explained to the committee that he had the ability to quickly audit the paper ballots counted by the Dominion machines and could easily identify fraudulent ballots due to physical artifacts that such ballots contain:

He made a simple request of the Committee to allow him to conduct an audit of Fulton County  ballots, a process that he said would only take a few hours, given that it is entirely automated. After hearing his compelling testimony, the Committee members voted along partisan lines – of course – to approve his audit:

Assuming everything Mr. Pulitzer described today is on the up and up and that he can a) prove the Dominion machines are in fact linked to the Internet, and b) identify enough fraudulent ballots to change the outcome of the presidential contest in Georgia, this could be a game-changer.

After all, if this is all factual in Georgia, why would things be any different in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Arizona, along with every other state in the union that uses Dominion hardware and software?

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Huge Court Wins for Trump in Wisconsin, Michigan

As the Electoral College conducts its vote to declare China Joe Potato Head Biden as the next President of the United States, current President Donald Trump scored important court wins in both Michigan and Wisconsin.

In Michigan, a state judge ordered the lifting of a gag order preventing the public release of the findings of a forensic audit of Dominion Systems voting machines and software used in Antrim County. That forensic audit discovered that the machines created an astonishing error rate of 68.5% of the ballots cast in that county.

From that forensic report, which was conducted by Allied Security Operations Group:

We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results.

The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud.

Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.

The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%). We observed an error rate of 68.05%. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.

It is critical to understand that the Dominion system classifies ballots into two categories, 1) normal ballots and 2) adjudicated ballots. Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch.

A staggering number of votes required adjudication. This was a 2020 issue not seen in previous election cycles still stored on the server. This is caused by intentional errors in the system. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency or audit trail. Our examination of the server logs indicates that this high error rate was incongruent with patterns from previous years.

The statement attributing these issues to human error is not consistent with the forensic evaluation, which points more correctly to systemic machine and/or software errors. The systemic errors are intentionally designed to create errors in order to push a high volume of ballots to bulk adjudication.

Research is ongoing. However, based on the preliminary results, we conclude that the errors are so significant that they call into question the integrity and legitimacy of the results in the Antrim County 2020 election to the point that the results are not certifiable.

Because the same machines and software are used in 48 other counties in Michigan, this casts doubt on the integrity of the entire election in the state of Michigan.”

[End]

This bombshell report obviously casts doubt on all the ballots cast in those other 48 counties, and throughout the entire state of Michigan. There is no question that this decision will be appealed up the chain by Biden supporters, but the report is already in the public domain and now provides grounds for more challenges to the Michigan election results.

Meanwhile, in Wisconsin… – The Wisconsin Supreme Court today ruled that Democrat election officials in that state incorrectly interpreted the state’s voter ID law to allow all voters in the state to willy-nilly use COVID-19 as an excuse to request a mail-in ballot and thus avoid presenting proper identification in order to vote.

From a story at ElectionWiz:

MADISON — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Mark Jefferson and the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

But the court noted that a determination must be make in every case before tossing a ballot, as President Trump has sought in a separate lawsuit.

Under Wisconsin law, a voter may receive a ballot by mail and bypass Wisconsin’s voter ID law, if the voter, by his own determination, concludes he “confined” based on age, physical illness, or infirmity. This fall, roughly 215,000 voters in Wisconsin said they were indefinitely confined, nearly a four-fold increase from the 2016 election.

The court said the government’s interpretation of Wisconsin’s indefinitely confined was erroneous. “A county clerk may not “declare” that any elector is indefinitely confined due to a pandemic,” the court said. The court further stated that, “…the presence of a communicable disease such as COVID-19, in and of itself, does not entitle all electors [voters] in Wisconsin to obtain an absentee ballot…”

Moreover, the court stated that lockdown orders do not meet the requirements under Wisconsin law to allow a voter to claim the status of “indefinitely confined” either.

[End]

This decision will also no doubt be appealed to the federal courts by Biden supporters. Still, a win is a win, and these are two big ones.

That is all.

WATCH: China and America’s Elite – A Tucker Carlson Monologue Every American Should See

Yes, I know everyone hates Fox News now, but bear with me here. – Tucker Carlson delivered a revealing monologue on last night’s show about how the ChiComs are going about bribing and influencing America’s politicians, educators and other elements of the “elite” in our society. It is so on point that Twitter is trying and failing to block access to it this morning.

Take the time to either watch the clip below or read the transcript that follows. You will be glad you did.

Watch this clip:

Here’s the Transcript:

Since the day Donald Trump was elected in 2016, we have been told that Russia is at the very top of the list of threats to America. Russia has penetrated our government. Russia threatens our democracy. Russia works tirelessly to subvert our economy and our way of life.

Of course, such claims were a lie, and we’re all aware of that now. Russia never had the power or the money to control our government, and there’s no evidence they even tried. But that doesn’t mean that there was no collusion.

In fact, top leaders in American government and business have been compromised by a foreign power that seeks to undermine our country and our democratic system. It turns out that many of the very people who ranted so hysterically about Russia  were doing precisely what they claimed to decry. They were working on behalf of our chief global rival, the government of China.

The Russia hoax, effectively, was a diversion. It hid something that is not a hoax at all, but is real and threatening to all of us. We’re going to spend the foreseeable future reporting on the relationship between America’s political and financial elites and the communist government of China that has made many of them very rich.

On Nov. 28, Di Dongsheng, a professor at Renmin University in Beijing, appeared on a Chinese television show about Wall Street and international trade. Like so many in academia in China, Di is a servant of his country’s government. This video was deleted from Chinese social media soon after being uploaded, and here’s why:

DI DONSHENG (translation): The Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why, between 1992 and 2016, did China and the U.S., use to be able to settle all kinds of issues? No mater what kind of crises we encountered … things were solved in no time … We fixed everything in two months. What is the reason? I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence, we have our old friends.

Two different Chinese speakers have confirmed the above translation. This is as close to a smoking gun as we have ever seen.

“We have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.” According to Di Dongsheng, that has been true for decades.

So who are these people and how many of them work in our media and in our government? Well, Di didn’t say precisely. At another point in the program, he described a Chinese agent working as a vice president at, “a top Wall Street financial institution.” Di explained that he couldn’t say more without making political trouble.

Di did tell his audience that one agent in particular was especially useful, and he goes on at some length about her. He describes her as an American who’s lived abroad for many years and is now a Chinese citizen, and this seems to baffle him a little bit. The Chinese government doesn’t allow dual citizenship. Why would they? Why would anyone? Di seems pleased that the U.S. government is foolish enough to allow it. He explains that this American agent, who lives at least part of the year in Beijing, helped the Chinese government with a propaganda operation in Washington in 2015, and he goes on to describe that in some detail.

The Obama administration was easy to manipulate, Di suggests. The Chinese had many friends among the Obama people. The problem came when Donald Trump was elected. After that, he says, everything changed.

DI DONGSHENG (translation): For the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States … Since the 1970s, Wall Street had a very strong influence on the domestic and foreign affairs of the United States, so we had a channel to rely on. But the problem is that after 2008, the status of Wall Street has declined, and more importantly, after 2016, Wall Street can’t fix Trump. Why? It’s very awkward. Trump had a previous soft default issue with Wall Street, so there was a conflict between them. But I won’t go into details, I may not have enough time. So during the U.S.-China trade war they [Wall Street] tried to help. And I know that, my friends on the U.S. side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much.

Since the 1970s, Di said, Wall Street has had enormous influence over the way the United States government operates. The Chinese government, he says, has enormous influence on Wall Street, and that arrangement worked very well for a long time.

Then Donald Trump unexpectedly was elected in 2016 and Wall Street was infuriated. “Wall Street can’t fix Trump,” he said, but they tried. This gives the game away.

If you’re wondering why our political class has stood by and allowed the Chinese government to degrade this country and our way of life, stood by as the Chinese government has flooded the United States with deadly opioids that have killed hundreds of thousands of people, stood by as the Chinese government ripped off billions of dollars worth of intellectual property from our companies, there’s your answer.

Earlier this year, the chairman of Harvard’s chemistry department was arrested for taking $50,000 per month from the Communist Party of China in return for sending secrets and referring top scientists to Beijing. It barely rated as a scandal and you may not even be aware it happened. Why? Because so many are on the take.

In effect, Donald Trump was an impediment to this very lucrative arrangement, and for that reason, Di explains in the video, America’s most powerful elites — and he calls them that — got to work on electing a new president again:

DI DONSHENG (translation): But now we’re seeing Biden was elected [laughter]. The traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street. So you see that, right? Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped him [Biden’s son] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals in all these. [laughter, applause]

Di notes, because the Chinese do pay close attention to what we say here, Donald Trump has complained about Hunter Biden and his ties to the Chinese government. So now you know why you weren’t allowed to talk about Hunter Biden’s laptop and why big business aligned as one to suppress that story: Because they were implicated in it.

Back in October, we interviewed a man called Tony Bobulinski, because no one else would. Tony Bobulinski was a business partner of the Bidens. Here’s what he told us about China:

BOBULINSKI: And in a document that you guys have in — I think it’s been provided to, you know, to the world — the Chinese referenced that because of their trust in the Biden family, that Chairman Ye and Director Zang are excited about moving forward in this. And in that document, they reference loaning $5 million to the ‘BD family’ … The ‘BD family’ is the Biden family.

CARLSON: What are the implications of this going forward if Joe Biden is elected president, which could very well happen? How does this constrain his ability to deal with China?

BOBULINSKI: Are you asking for my personal —

CARLSON: I am, I’m asking for your opinion as someone who’s worked with the Chinese.

BOBULINSKI: So I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised. 

“I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised.”

It looks like Tony Bobulinski was right about that. And it looks like the Bidens are far from the only ones who have been compromised.

That is all.

Texas AG Paxton and Sen. Cruz Step Up to Fight Democrat Election Fraud

God Bless Texas for sending this man to Washington. – He is likely the least popular senator among his colleagues in the Senate, and there is a good reason why that is the case. That reason centers around the fact that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is never shy about challenging the status quo, or about upsetting the Senate’s country club atmosphere.

Cruz is a disruptor in the Senate, the uninvited guest to the wedding party who spikes the punch, turns over the bridal cake table or leaps in front of the gathered spinsters to catch the garter. He’s Vince Vaughn in “The Wedding Crashers” alongside Rand Paul playing the Owen Wilson part.

On Monday, Senator Cruz did it again, no doubt eliciting a heavy round of tsk tsks from the Susan Collins’s and Mitt Romneys of the world by tweeting that he’d be more than happy to present oral arguments to the Supreme Court in the Pennsylvania election case should the court decide to hear the case:

Cruz went on to say the following in three subsequent tweets:

Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA.

Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument.

As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe #SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.

[End]

For those who are not aware, Cruz has a strong history of arguing cases before the Supreme Court from his time serving as Deputy Attorney General in Texas. No one has any idea if the court will agree to hear this case or how it would rule if it does, but God Bless Senator Cruz for being willing to stand up while most of his cowardly colleagues are hiding in closets in desperate efforts to avoid taking questions from the press.

To think we almost lost this guy to Beto O’Rourke. Holy crap.

Well, this is a novel approach, at least. – Speaking of the Texas Attorney General’s office, current Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is using the office to join the crowded field of lawyers challenging the results of the November presidential election.  He is taking a novel approach, especially when one considers that Donald Trump easily defeated China Joe Potato Head Biden in the Lone Star State, an outcome no one is challenging.

Per former Texas Ranger Roscoe Davis, Paxton filed a petition directly to the U.S. Supreme Court late last night, claiming that this direct appeal to the USSC is valid due to its standing as the original court of jurisdiction in disputes between states. Paxton’s reasoning, if Davis is accurately summarizing the case, is that the states of Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution and the 12th Amendment by implementing invalid changes to voting rules and procedures via the courts or executive orders. This would make sense to any common sense reading of the Electors Clause, since it gives sole authority to son the subject:

The end around case has been put together by TX AG Ken Paxton suing GA, MI, WI, and PA at SCOTUS. Bringing this case across multiple jurisdictions gives it a straight lane to the SCOTUS.

This happened just before midnight tonight, will post documents soon.

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states, this is hard tactics.

The Great State of Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.

These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Bush v. Gore 2000.

Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of these changes.

Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors. If this is successful it opens the door for the next step.

The genius behind this is they don’t have to prove fraud, there’s no doubt there are “election irregularities” all that has to be proven is that they changed election laws by executive order and not by legislation as required by the US Constitution. Article II, Section 1 Clause 2.

All these Governors and Sec of States making these changes out in the open make the case pretty clear.

The Defense is going to claim it was a COVID Pandemic, mark my words, it’s all they got, it was their excuse for everything in every state.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 is really clear and there is no Pandemic clause.

Now when they start screaming Pandemic Crisis, all the libs that went out for haircuts and Napa Valley Dinners, and seen all over the media, claiming privilege, are screwed.

If you can go to the store, go out to eat, go get your hair done, do all the things the political elite were doing, while claiming lockdown and mask mandates, then you can get out and vote, no need for special circumstances!

Game set match.

The relief being sought has not only precedent (Election of 1836) it has constitutional verbage to back it up.

Not asking for the SCOTUS to throw out ballots, just follow the Constitution and the 12th Amendment of a Contingent Election.

[End]

All you folks in Georgia might want to pay attention to steps these Texas officials are willing to take to try to reverse what is a clearly fraudulent election result in your own state, and contrast it to the ongoing coverup being desperately implemented by your own Governor, Brian Kemp, and Sec. State Brad Raffensperger.

It is a very stark contrast indeed.

God Bless Texas.

Saturday News Roundup: Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Say the Quiet Parts Out Loud

China Quid Pro Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Pelosi both violated the cardinal rule of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater on Friday: They said the parts that are supposed to remain quiet out loud.

For the last 6 months I and many others have written about the probability that Biden is just a place-holder, selected by the Democrat Party to “win” the office only because Kamala Harris – their preferred choice – was to awful a candidate to have any hope of winning. Once installed in the Oval Office, Joe Potato Head would quickly develop some “health-related issue” to use as a reason for resigning and deeding the presidency to the sock puppet Harris. There never really has been any mystery about this being the Democrat plan: It’s been obvious from the day they fixed the South Carolina primary for Biden.

On Friday, Joe Potato Head’s creeping dementia took over his mouth and he just came right out and admitted that’s going to happen at the first sign of disagreement with his designated successor.

Watch with the sound turned on:

Oh. You don’t say. If you think Joe Potato Head was just joking around there, just give it ’til March or so and watch what happens. You’ll be welcoming President Kamala before you know it.

Then there was San Fran Nan, speaking to the assembled lapdog press a little bit later in the day, looking and sounding for all the world like a villain out of a Batman movie. Pelosi spent the entirety of August through Election Day personally serving as a decrepit, doddering, slobbering roadblock to any and all Covid-related stimulus legislation. She also spent every day of those three months lying about what she was doing.

Well, on Friday, she not only admitted what she’s done, she bragged that she is really quite proud of it all. You don’t have to believe me – just watch and listen:

Oh.

In other unintentionally hilarious news, Joe Potato Head told Fake Jake Tapper on CNN that he will make sure that his crook son Hunter doesn’t do anything to mess up his presidency, because of course he says that.

From a story at the New York Post:

President-elect Joe Biden said Thursday his son Hunter Biden won’t reap an overseas business windfall from his new job as commander-in-chief.

“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” Biden told CNN journalist Jake Tapper in a taped interview.

Hunter Biden’s business relationships in China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine became a major focus in the weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

An abandoned laptop provided by a Delaware computer repairman to President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contained bombshell documents appearing to implicate Joe Biden in his son’s business relationships in China and Ukraine.

[End]

Of course, Biden gave similar assurances to the fawning media and the public that he wouldn’t use the office of the Vice Presidency for personal financial gain, and we saw how that all worked out. If you beliee him when he says it now, you’re even dumber than you looked when you voted for him.

From our Yeah, Sure, Right, Uh-huh, You Betcha file… – Fat, lazy, do-nothing Attorney General William Barr says his DOJ is on the job!

*sigh*

On the China Virus front, the news is not all bad and depressing. – After all, the Sheriff of Los Angeles County promised yesterday to defy Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest draconian shutdown order. From a story at DailyWire:

On Thursday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva reportedly asserted that he won’t force his deputies to enforce a new statewide stay-at-home order against businesses issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom and state health officials.

Bill Melugin of KTTV tweeted that Sheriff Villanueva “tells me he found out about the new stay at home orders from Governor Newsom’s press conference, and there was no coordination with law enforcement beforehand, which he says is concerning when the Governor is expecting enforcement of his orders.”

Villanueva told KTTV, “I want to stay away from business[es] that are trying to comply, they bent over backwards to modify their operations to conform to these orders and then they have the rug yanked out from under them, that’s a disservice. I don’t want to make them more miserable.”

Melugin added, “Sheriff Villanueva says he believes the Lakers & Dodgers celebrations and Thanksgiving played a part in our recent surges, and that the civil unrest protests earlier in the year contributed to an earlier surge. Doesn’t believe restaurants, etc, are to blame.”

[End]

So, not all California public officials are despicable fascists. Good to know.

Yeah, they might all end up in prison. – Meanwhile, down in the Devil’s playpen that is Georgia, election officials are begging a judge to allow them to purge the general election data from their Dominion Systems voting machines, claiming that a failure to do so could result in “grave and serious consequences”:

Good lord. What a cesspool Fulton County has become.

That is all.

How Faulty Focus Leads to a Deadly Form of Projection

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

DNC Member Suggests ‘Deprogramming’ 75 million Trump Supporters

Every camera phone these days has a feature that can flip the focus from “selfie” to the outside world for a more conventional shot. All of it done with a quick touch to our screen.

That’s as good a high tech explanation as any, of projection in the psychological sense.

Apart from deliberate projection, which is regularly used as a political tactic as per Saul Alinsky, there is the more classic and unconscious projection that happens among true believers of the same ilk.

Take a look at what happens when one of those believers is caught telling the truth about what he’d like to do to Trump voters:

DNC Member Suggests ‘Deprogramming’ 75 Million Trump Supporters

While David Atkins wonders how anyone could be a Trump supporter, many of us wonder how a Leftist who may have been initially attracted to feel good ideas like “tolerance” and “diversity”, could publicly advocate forceful “deprogramming” of 75 million of his fellow citizens (in refugee camps? concentration camps?) for the sin of disagreeing with him about a political candidate. How does that happen?

Here’s a little of how projection works: Most of us are capable of powerful emotions. We also have emotions about our powerful emotions, which complicates matters even further. This can terrify people, especially if they already have trouble distinguishing between thoughts, feelings and actions. How could I have such horrible, evil, hateful thoughts?  Does that make me evil too?

Among the variety of responses possible when emotions become too intense or painful for a person to tolerate, is a kind of flip of focus just like that camera. The subject disowns his uncomfortable or embarrassing feelings and quite unconsciously attributes them to others–often to the person or group on which he has already been so intensely focused.

It’s much easier to feel justified in advocating full-blown persecution of those he hates if he can view himself as a victim. To add insult to injury, this is all in the name of “tolerance.”

What happens when true victims of a paranoia-fueled vendetta are themselves called “paranoid?”  How do we know who to believe?  Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha and the McCluskeys in St. Louis know firsthand how the propaganda media works full time to confuse the public about which are the criminals and which are the law-abiding citizens.

The inability to distinguish or accept the origins of one’s rage are the building blocks of paranoia and persecution complexes.

A culture that positively values personal responsibility rather than collective guilt is infinitely healthier not just politically but psychologically.

Atkins goes on to project another charge against Trump supporters claiming they are in a “death cult against reality & basic decency.”

If ever there were an ideology that resembles a classic cult it is the Leftism, Socialism,  and Communism of today which now controls what used to be the Democrat Party.

In 2017, I outlined some of the more obvious comparisons in Twenty-One Reasons Why Liberalism is Like a Cult

Cults feed and grow off collectivism and group-think. That is why they must always demonize dissent, individuality and personal responsibility.

Remember when the Left lectured us (when do they not?) about “Hate!, Hate!, We have to root out hate!”  That should have been our first clue that they were getting ready to unleash an avalanche of hate upon us, and they did. The pattern is so often repeated that we can just about predict what they’ll do by watching what they accuse everyone else of next.

For his mental health and our safety, David Atkins and others like him need to flip their cameras to “selfie.”  That, or take a good, long look in the mirror.

Here’s Some of the Evidence the Trump Legal Team Will Use

Despite the Trump legal team’s declination to reveal its entire case to the corrupt news media, we know some of the hard evidence of massive Democrat voter fraud it has at its disposal, since much of it is already in the public domain. Here is some of what they have.

First of all, despite its’ current protestations of innocence, Smartmatic’s founder and CEO, Antonio Mugica, admitted in 2017 that its system had been used to create at least 1 million fraudulent votes for Venezuelan socialist strongman Nicolas Maduro:

This OANN segment does a good job of describing the amazing vulnerabilities inherent to the Dominion voting machine system:

Back in the old days – you know, before Trump came along – the leftwing news media was just as concerned about Dominion’s lack of security and incredibly suspicious origins as we are today:

Here’s how the system was used to shove through tens of thousands of votes for Biden in Michigan and Wisconsin in the wee hours of the morning of November 4:

Here’s the Wisconsin chart to which Hart refers in his first tweet:

Note that both dumps came shortly after the ballot-counting processes in Michigan and Wisconsin – and several other states – had been mysteriously paused for a couple of hours. You can be sure that, had that enormous tranche of votes been reversed, and handed the President Wisconsin’s electoral votes, every corrupt media outlet in America would be hyper-focused on it and alleging blatant fraud, which it clearly is.

Democrat vote “counters” in Pennsylvania and Georgia tried to be a little more subtle about their election theft, avoiding a huge single dump of Biden-only ballots in favor of repeatedly shoving through the same batches of smaller numbers across several days.

These spreadsheets compiled from New York Times data show how batches of Biden ballots numbering 6,000 (or multiples of 6,000) in Pennsylvania and 4,800 in Georgia were repeated “counted” through the Dominion machines in the days after Election Day:

This and much more is the kind of data Trump’s lawyers plan to present to the courts in various states as their cases move forward. It is in addition to all the witness testimony they have gathered, along with clear evidence of thousands of dead voters and ineligible voters somehow voting for Biden.

But wait, there’s more!:

– In Nevada, former state Attorney General Adam Laxalt says his team has identified at least 15,000 individuals who voted in that state and also voted in California or other states on November 3, a classic tactic deployed for years by the Harry Reid machine there.

– In Georgia you have multiple witnesses testifying to have seen boxes full of Biden-only ballots that appeared to have been machine-created.

– In Pennsylvania, 680,000 ballots were counted while GOP election observers were prohibited from doing their jobs by Democrat election officials.

– In Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, multiple U.S. Postal Service employees have signed affidavits in which they swear under penalty of perjury that they were instructed by superiors to back-date postmarks on ballots for Biden – a federal felony.

– In Milwaukee, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Phoenix and Las Vegas, dozens of heavily-Democrat precincts in which the number of ballots supposedly cast vastly exceeded the number of registered voters living there.

But in the face of all of this evidence and much, much more, you are being brainwashed by the entirety of the corrupt national news media – the same media who spent the past 4 years pushing a fake Russia hoax, a fake impeachment hoax and so many other Democrat hoaxes – to believe that there is no such thing as voter fraud in America and that Biden, the guy who couldn’t draw flies to a butcher shop, won with 10 million more votes than Barack Hussein Obama received in 2008.

Friday News Roundup: Giuliani and Powell Press Conference – Mission Accomplished

The media is very, very worried, and it shows. – Rudy Giuliani’s hair dye ran down his face as he sweated through yesterday’s Democrat election fraud press conference, and that’s all the corrupt news media wants to talk about related to that event. Which means that the corrupt news media is really, really concerned about the substance of what Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and the other attorneys who participated had to say.

This is Liberal Media Distraction 101: When you don’t want to report on the substance, find a distraction from it. It’s what they do.

But that’s ok, because the press conference achieved exactly what it was designed to achieve.

The strength of the presser yesterday is that it succeeded in creating a broader dissemination and awareness of the allegations of massive Democrat election fraud in several states among the general public. Achieving that, of course, was the main reason for conducting it, given that the lawyers knew going in that they would receive a 100% hostile reception from the Democrat-activist-pretend-journalists who showed up.

The media hates Giuliani for his fierce defense of President Trump against the Mueller thugs and the Democrat impeachment hoax, and for his forcing of the Hunter Biden laptop into the public domain. These actions are all cardinal sins in their eyes, given they all harmed the media’s Democrat Party benefactors.

Giuliani is thus Public Enemy #2 – second to the bad Orange Man in the White House, of course – in the media’s collective, myopic eyes, and anything he has to say is to be dismissed out of hand and ridiculed in the coarsest manner possible on CNN and MSNBC. Thus, Rudy dyes his hair – just as pretty much 100% of the preening media jackasses themselves do on a regular basis – and that is the object of ridicule, the means of distraction from the substance of what was discussed on Thursday.

The media also detests Sidney Powell, because she has spent the preponderance of the last two years defending a true American hero, General Mike Flynn, against the brutal abuse of the U.S. Department of Justice and the utterly corrupt federal judge in his case. This again is a cardinal sin in the media’s eyes, given that even Flynn’s original law firm was in on the fix against him, and the media thought they had him in the bag until Powell came along and spoiled the whole deal.

Even Tucker Carlson went off on Powell during his monologue last night, whining about the fact that she refuses to reveal her entire case to the producers of his Fox News show.

Here’s an excerpt:

On Sunday night, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” texted her after watching one of her segments. What Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history. Millions of votes stolen in a day, democracy destroyed, the end of our centuries-old system of self-government. Not a small thing.

Now, to be perfectly clear, we did not dismiss any of it. We don’t dismiss anything anymore, particularly when it’s related to technology. We’ve talked to too many Silicon Valley whistleblowers and we’ve seen too much after four years on the air.  We literally do UFO segments, not because we’re crazy or even been interested in the subject, but because there is evidence that UFOs are real and everyone lies about it.

There’s evidence that a lot of things that responsible people dismiss out of hand as ridiculous are in fact real. The louder the Yale political science department and the staff of The Atlantic magazine scream “conspiracy theory,” the more interested we tend to be. That’s usually a sign you’re over the target. A lot of people with impressive-sounding credentials in this country are frauds. They have no idea what they’re doing. They’re children posing as authorities. And when they’re caught, they lie and then they blame you for it. We see that every day. It’s the central theme of our show and will continue to be.

So that’s a long way of saying we took Sidney Powell seriously with no intention of fighting with her. We’ve always respected her work, we simply wanted to see the details. How could you not want to see them? So we invited Sydney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week, actually, and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention.

But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of polite requests. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her. When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they also told us Powell had never given them any evidence to prove anything she claimed today at the press conference.

Powell did say that electronic voting is dangerous, and she’s right, but she never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one.

[End]

Understand that Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani are very smart and experienced lawyers. Giuliani is the former U.S. Attorney that brought down the New York City mob families, for crying out loud. Never during the long, highly-complex cases he took to court under the then-new RICO laws did he reveal all of his evidence to the defense during a press conference. That’s not something any intelligent lawyer does.

Sidney Powell spent 1o years as an assistant U.S. Attorney herself. During that time, she successfully prosecuted Texas mobster Jimmy Chagra, whose family commissioned the hit on Federal Judge John Wood by Charles Harrelson. For the last 25 years she has been an incredibly successful appellate lawyer practicing in the federal courts. Again, not once has she ever revealed her entire case to the other side during a press conference or on a Fox News talking head show.

Why? Because she, like Giuliani, knows what she’s doing. Carlson knows this: Thus, the motivation for his monologue last night is fairly mysterious, and should probably be viewed in the context of Fox’s overall rapid shift to the political left.

Yesterday’s press conference was pure legal theater, designed to accomplish exactly what it achieved: To make this subject the prevailing topic of conversation across all social media platforms, and to raise public awareness of the nature of the charges the team will be making in court.

Even with Rudy’s hair dye streaming down his cheeks, Mission Accomplished.

Now, the hard work of actually convincing judges must begin in earnest, and it better happen fast.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Newsom Exposed and Cuomo Goes Completely off the Rails

Another big reversal in Wayne County, Michigan. – I discuss the latest reversal by the GOP members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers elsewhere today. It’s potentially a big deal for a variety of reasons.

Hey, that’s totally believable. – A local TV station in Fulton County, Georgia reported yesterday that one precinct in Atlanta a reported turnout that was 3300% above the number of registered voters living there.

From our Department of Futile Gestures….

God Bless Jim Jordan, but even if San Fran Nan were inclined to worry about election integrity (she isn’t), she’d just put Pencil Neck Adam Schiff in charge of any such investigation so it could be falsified and buried. The House of Representatives has no productive role to play here.

Bring them all home, Mr. President. – Now that he has some loyal people installed at the Pentagon, President Trump is using what could become the final months of his presidency to bring America’s men and women back home from the senseless Middle East and North African wars his predecessors got them involved in over the past 32 years. After announcing such moves related to the 19 year war in Afghanistan and the 18 year war in Iraq, the President is now reportedly preparing to bring most of our people home from the festering hellhole that is Somalia.

From a report at Reuters:

President Donald Trump may withdraw nearly all U.S. troops from Somalia as part of a global pullback that includes reductions of forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said nothing had been finalized and that no orders for Somalia have been received by the U.S. military. But there appeared to be a growing expectation that drawdown orders would be coming soon.

The Pentagon on Tuesday announced that Trump will reduce U.S. forces in Afghanistan from 4,500 to 2,500 by Jan. 15, just five days before his term ends, and cut U.S. forces in Iraq by 500 to the same level.

The United States has about 700 troops in Somalia focused on helping local forces defeat the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab insurgency. The mission receives little attention in the United States but is considered a cornerstone of the Pentagon’s global efforts to combat al Qaeda.

Trump’s newly-installed acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, a former Green Beret and counterterrorism official, is taking a hard look at Somalia and could opt for keeping a minimal presence there and stop relying on large deployments to combat al Shabaab.

[End]

If President Trump really wants to take this global, he should look at getting our remaining forces out of freaking Germany, where America has spent the last 75 years defending the country that started two World Wars from an “enemy” – the Soviet Union – that has not even existed for 30 long years now. Now, that would be a wonderful thing.

Cuomo goes completely off the rails. – Governor Andrew Cuomo held one of his Fidel Castro-like press events yesterday, ostensibly designed to provide the public with useful information and comfort about the draconian new shut-down restrictions he is imposing on them yet again.

Instead, the Central American dictator-in-training went completely off the rails, blaming his citizens for the problems with the China Virus, and haranguing one reporter who simply asked whether or not the state’s schools would be shut down.

Here are a couple of examples:

But Cuomo’s not the only despot-in-training. – Indeed, from New Jersey to Pennsylvania to Michigan to Nevada to California, the nation is filled to the gills with communist Democrat governors who are just itching for the chance to move to Honduras or Nicaragua and spend their lives issuing edicts depriving the masses of any human rights at all.

In California, Gavin Newsom continues to do his best imitation of Castro’s predecessor, the pompous and arrogant Fulgencio Batista, imposing dramatic restrictions on the masses while flaunting them in public. In the latest example of Newsom’s boundless hubris, he imposed new restrictions on the state’s restaurants and on Thanksgiving gatherings, then flew up to Napa for a ritzy, maskless, non-social distanced dinner at the fabulous French Laundry restaurant with a couple dozen of the state’s elite in celebration of some lobbyist’s birthday.

Photos show CA Gov Gavin Newsom without a mask at dinner | The Sacramento Bee

Astonishingly, two of the guests at the dinner were California Medical Assocation CEO Dustin Corcoran and CMA’s lobbyist Janus Norman.

You seriously could never make this stuff up in a million gazillion years, folks.

From a story at Politico:

California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative’s opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month.

CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.

Both Norman and Corcoran are friends of Kinney, as is Newsom, who referred this week to his 20-year friendship with Kinney. In a photo obtained by Fox LA, Norman is clearly visible seated to Newsom’s left.

The presence of CMA brass could amplify criticisms of the dinner occurring despite coronavirus restrictions that have limited Californians’ movements and constrained businesses. While Newsom and Kinney’s lobbying firm have said the meal abided by public health rules, it has struck a chord with Californians who have assailed the upscale soiree as hypocritical as coronavirus cases surge.

The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately — a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner. However, the state has intentionally allowed restaurants to seat people from more than three households together.

[End]

Oh. I would feel sympathy for California’s masses, but hey, they voted for this jackass in overwhelming numbers. Or at least the state’s Democrat election officials told them they did.

Think about it.

Raffensperger Seeks Shelter From CNN and the Washington Post

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is severely compromised and needs to be removed. Unfortunately, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp also appears to be compromised, as we discussed over the weekend. Raffensperger entered into a probably-illegal consent decree with Stacy Abrams’ voter fraud subornation team last spring that he believes prevents the state from examining mail-in ballots for simple things like valid signatures and addresses. He appears to be desperate to keep that decree in force in order to ensure that Joe Biden “won” his state on November 3.

All of this compromise by Raffensperger led him yesterday to seek shelter with the corrupt news media, specifically with CNN and the Washington Post. In interviews with both fake news outlets, Raffensperger accused Sen. Lindsey Graham and other prominent Republicans of “pressuring” him to throw out ballots that he desperately wants to count.

From a story at the New York Times:

Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, on Monday accused fellow Republicans of trying to undermine the legitimacy of the state’s election in an effort to swing the results to President Trump, who narrowly lost the state to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and later demanded the hand recount.

Election officials in Georgia also announced Monday evening that they had discovered 2,600 ballots in Floyd County that had not been previously reported to the state, a notable but overall minor hiccup in what they otherwise described as a smooth recounting of the nearly five million ballots cast by Georgia voters during the presidential election.

The counting is expected to wrap up this week, and elections officials have reported few problems aside from the error in Floyd County, which is located in northwestern Georgia and voted heavily for Mr. Trump. Democrats said the recount had so far resulted in no substantive changes, at least none that would affect the lead currently enjoyed by Mr. Biden.

“The Floyd County situation was unfortunate,” said Gabriel Sterling, an official with the office of Georgia’s secretary of state. However, he added, “The majority of the counties right now are finding zero deviations from the original number of ballots.”

Mr. Raffensperger, in an interview with The Washington Post, said that Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was among those Republicans seeking to challenge legally cast absentee ballots with the aim of helping Mr. Trump take the lead in a state in which he is losing by several thousand votes. According to Mr. Raffensperger, Mr. Graham asked about possible ways that ballots could be disqualified, including whether the secretary of state could reject all absentee ballots in counties that had a high number of signature mismatches on those ballots.

A spokesperson for Mr. Raffensperger declined to comment when reached Monday evening. Senator Graham, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill on Monday, denied that he had suggested to Mr. Raffensperger that he find a way to throw out legally cast ballots.

“That’s ridiculous,” said Mr. Graham, who said that his conversation with Mr. Raffensperger covered questions about Georgia’s system of using signatures to verify the identity of voters who use absentee ballots. “I thought it was a good conversation,” Mr. Graham said. “I’m surprised to hear he characterized it that way.”

Mr. Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, was stung last week when Georgia’s senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both ardent Trump supporters, called for Mr. Raffensperger’s resignation, accusing him of mismanagement and calling the election he oversaw “an embarrassment.”

[End]

In past elections, the rejection rates for mail-in and absentee ballots due to lack of valid signatures and addresses was about 3% in Georgia. In this election, that rejection rate fell to just .02% thanks to Raffensperger’s convenient deal with the Democrats and their voter fraud efforts. The difference in those two percentages would far more than enough to deny Biden his illegitimate “win” in the state.

There can be no doubt that Graham and Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, among others, have indeed questioned Raffensperger on why he has chosen to abandon the most fundamental methods of ensuring that ballots were cast legally in this election. Indeed, this was the very reason why the two Georgia Senators called for his resignation.

Raffensperger has no legitimate argument to support his collusion with the Democrats, which is why he has now resorted to seeking shelter with CNN and the Washington Post.

Someone really needs to take a very deep dive into Mr. Raffensperger’s background. His behavior is frankly inexplicable unless he is severely compromised where Dominion Systems and this election is concerned.

That is all.
