Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Responds To Arizona Senate Subpoena – Go Spit, “It’s Time to Move On”
Last week, the Arizona State Senate sent a subpoena to Maricopa County election officials asking for information and voting material the county previously refused to turn over [See Here].

Today, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors responded to the legislative subpoena:

Facsimile of the letter is at the site - really worth going and reading if only to see how eloquently they were able to say: "Go piss up a rope". They know that they are facing jail time when their malfeasance is proven - defiant to the end.  When you have nothing - push the Big Lie.

Of course, they yanked it when someone pointed out how tone-deaf it was but the internet is forever.

Psychologists call this "Projection" and this is an epic example.

Duuhhhh - they are breaking the law in the first place.  Why should they start being law abiding citizens now?
From The Federalist:

Shocker: Nearly 90 Percent Of Illegal Immigrants Let In By Biden Have Refused To Report To ICE As Required
Nearly 90 percent of the 50,000 migrants released by the Biden administration have not yet reported to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement within the required 60-day window.

While at least 27,000 of the illegal aliens still have time within their allotted 60 days to report to ICE, Axios reported that at least 16,000 of those whose window of time has expired have disregarded the honor system and “not showed up.”

“That’s 2.4 no-shows for every one that has checked in,” the report states.

Disaster. Biden's legacy.

Attributed to Mark Twain but not an actual quote. I like his actual aphorism better:

History never repeats itself, but the Kaleidoscopic combinations of the pictured present
often seem to be constructed out of the broken fragments of antique legends.

If the current crop of commies get their wishes, that will be Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer wearing the sign and being shouted at.  Right alongside of them will be all of the the Gender Studies professors as well as Zuck and that twitter guy.  The leadership of Antifa will be taken out and shot (too dangerous now that their usefulness has passed) and BLM?  Screw them - they are gone into an unmarked grave. Their 15 minutes are well passed. All the LGBQ activists?  Bullets are expensive - live burial in an unmarked pit for them.

People today are playing.  Unfortunately, they are playing with fire and they do not realize that the fire burns those it loves.  It burns them the worst. Beyond recovery, beyond redemption.

Here is the full text of what is being rammed through Congress:

H. R. 3684  To authorize funds for Federal-aid highways, highway safety programs, and transit programs, and for other purposes.

All 2701 pages of pork, glorious pork. Read the Table of Contents and it looks pretty good:

TITLE I—FEDERAL-AID HIGHWAYS
TITLE II—TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE FINANCE AND INNOVATION
TITLE III—RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY, AND EDUCATION

But dig into the details?  I spot-checked through a couple random locations and there was nothing that I saw to improve or remediate existing infrastructure.  It is all pork to be delivered to the bag-men who fund these Senator's lifestyles.  Pay to play.

America has sunk deep into the waters of corruption and self-interest.  Term limits need to be instituted.
Get the incumbents out and start over. Clean slate.

The deferred rent/mortgage/bill payment has ended and people are going "How could this happen to me"

From The Washington Post/MSN:

A tsunami of deferred debt is about to hit homeowners no longer protected by a foreclosure moratorium
Only one week after New Orleans enacted a citywide stay-at-home order in March 2020, Laura Landry was hospitalized with covid-19, putting her out of work. Before she could recover, she was furloughed from her jobs as a nail technician and hotel employee.

When she found out she could enroll in forbearance — a provision that allowed those with federally backed mortgages facing covid-related hardships to defer their monthly payments — she took the opportunity. But now she owes over $20,000 on her home, and her forbearance ends next month, since the federal ban on foreclosures expired Saturday.

Landry is one of about 1.8 million homeowners still in forbearance as the safety net is removed. About a fifth of them will not be able to extend their forbearance past September. And 1.5 million more are at least three months behind on their mortgage without the protection of a forbearance plan.

More at the site.  Most forebearance plans were for 12 months, some up to 18 months. I understand that COVID hit the economy but the end of these programs did not take anyone by surprise.  If I was in that position?  Tighten my belts, sock as much money away in savings for when the program ended. Contact my mortgage holder to work out some kind of plan for repayment while resuming current payments.

There is zero need for a "Woe Is Me" attitude. In the example they gave, Ms. Landry worked as a nail technician and hotel employee. She is $20K in the hole. Assume a 12-month forbearance, that would be $1,600 monthly mortgage payment. A bit much for that level of income. Half her income?  What was she doing to further herself - was she taking classes at a local community college for welding or HVAC? Wages in these fields start at $60K and go up fast - big demand. Did she seek to refi her house?

So many options and from the article, it sounds like she spent the "extra" $1.6K and there is nothing left. Again, I feel sorry for her but there is only one real source for the majority of the blame.

I am reminded of the sober history lesson from Robert Anson Heinlein:

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”

So true - the socialists and mask-ninnies (but I repeat myself) want to drag us into the dark ages.
The better to manage our lives. To "nudge" us into proper behaviour.
They know so much more than we do about how to run our own lives - we should be grateful for their concern.

Believe that and I have a bridge for sale - you might be interested in it.

Oops - what kind of Doctor?

A tweet from Dr. Debby Burnett of Colorado.  Who happens to be running for office.
Sean Davis noticed something a bit off and tweeted back:

20210731-burnett.jpg

Yup - from Burnett's campaign site

Dr. Debby Burnett is a fourth generation Coloradan. As a veterinarian of 18+ years, she's worked with farmers and ranchers across our district

Shades of: "I just left the ER" from a few days ago.

Farm animals are now getting COVID?  OMFG - it's worse than I thought.....
Working on the COVID floor of your hospital? Pants on fire.

The opening three paragraphs of a wonderful observation.  From Old NFO:

“So he’s a dementia patient who is under a very public regime of elder abuse, with a brain dead wife who wants to be called doctor but thinks cardboard hearts will heal the country; followed by a clueless hooker who cackles when nervous…which is all the time because she has no clue what she’s doing; they have a doctor who is caught lying about everything, pretends it doesn’t matter, doubles down on debunked science to push experimental drugs for his own profit.

A bunch of pretend representatives who demand peons submit to national socialism while they are given free reign to spend insurmountable amounts of other peoples money; all while silently swapping national socialism for militarized dictatorship using “mostly peaceful protests” to prove the peons cannot govern themselves or the legal system. With a whole bunch of people who rigged elections, got caught, pretend it didn’t happen, then fight like it’s armageddon to keep people from seeing what is already known and when that fails start screaming about those evil, national terrorists known as white people.

Teachers are refusing to go to work until they can freely teach children that its okay for adult to groom them for sexual assault, to take life changing drugs before their bodies are fully developed, that only white people should be judged on the color of their skin and not the content of their character, that their parents should never be told what is being done and said to them, and that lowest common denominator isn’t low enough, we must aim lower because…race, 12 trillion “genders”, and more race.

Yeah - that about sums it up...  Crazy times... 

We are going to have one hell of a national hangover when we come to our collective senses.

then, maybe, I will belive that there is a crisis.

Visiting the 1/6 prisoners

| No Comments

This administration are holding many people from the 1/6 "riot" behind bars - keeping them incomminicado.
Some Representatives tried to visit them and were turned away. From the London Daily Mail:

Accused of trespass: Reps Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Louie Gohmert blocked from entering DC jail while trying to visit accused January 6 rioters

    • Gohmert, Gaetz, Gosar and Greene tried to visit detention facility on Thursday
    • Footage showed Gohmert and Greene being intercepted by a guard while they tried to enter the building
    • Greene told the group she has 'great concerns' if the attitude is any indication of how they're treating their prisoners inside
    • More than 535 people have been charged in taking part in the January 6 riots where protesters stormed the US Capitol

A group of House Republicans were accused of trespass by a detention facility in Washington D.C. while trying to visit some of the people held over the January 6 Capitol riots.

Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene attempted to visit some of those arrested following the unrest in the capital.

Footage showed Gohmert, of Texas, and Greene, of Georgia, being intercepted by a guard while they tried to enter the building.

Why?  Why are they not being alowed to contact those people being held.  Without bail. Without representation.

The left likes to go on and on about "political prisoners" but they show no qualms about locking people away.

This group is receiving Federal money to promote socialism?
Our tax dollars to people who violate our Constitution?
From The Washington Free Beacon:

Federal Government Gives Millions to Group That Supports Defunding the Police
The federal government provides tens of millions of dollars each year to a nonprofit group that supports the movement to defund police departments and dismantle the criminal justice system.

Officials with the Brooklyn-based Vera Institute of Justice have urged the government to "radically dismantle" police departments in order to fix a system they say dehumanizes people of color. The institute is heavily funded by the federal government. So far this fiscal year, the Department of Justice, Department of Health and Human Services, and other agencies have awarded the Vera Institute more than $89 million in contracts and grants. The organization has received $811 million in federal funding since 2008, according to USA Spending, a federal budget database.

Vera’s support for the "defund the police" movement comes amid a contentious political debate over policing in America. Democrats see the issue as a political third rail and have tried to distance the party from anti-police rhetoric popular on the left. While members of the Democratic Party have embraced the defund movement, President Joe Biden claimed this month that Republicans are "lying" when they say Democrats support the concept.

The Vera Institute, which calls itself a "justice reform change agent," also received stipends from traditional progressive donors, such as George Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The billionaire’s philanthropy gave more than $10 million to Vera from 2016 to 2019.

Audit them. Defund them. Prosecute their ringleaders.
They are nothing more than communist agitators living off the taxpayer dollar.

The word "justice" is overused these days.  Makes me want to reach for my Browning.

Funny how so many of the tweets are saying the exact same thing.
Looks like a robot bot farm.  Or a bunch of Democrats at their computers.
Same thing really:

20210728-ER.jpg

Funny if it was not so true - from Not The Bee:

Should have been obvious to anyone with half a brain. From BizPac Review:

Seattle mayor begs for more cops after six weekend shootings, 250 officers gone in 17 months
Democrat Seattle Mayor Jenny Durken is calling for more police after six shootings over the weekend and a loss of 250 officers within the last 17 months has left her city in chaos.

Five of the six weekend shootings occurred within blocks of one another and left four people dead and seven injured in their wake.

“As a city, we cannot continue on this current trajectory of losing police officers,” Mayor Durkan said at a press conference. “Over the past 17 months, the Seattle Police Department has lost 250 police officers which is the equivalent of over 300,000 service hours. We’re on path to losing 300 police officers.”

What's the matter Jenny - your magic narrative not working out as they promised?

Pathetic - zero leadership ability. They are running without a feedback loop.
Unable to examine the consequences of their actions.

Michigan again - Governor Whitmer

| No Comments

Two stories in the news these days - first, from BuzzFeed News:

WATCHING THE WATCHMEN
In the inky darkness of a late summer night last September, three cars filled with armed men began circling Birch Lake in northern Michigan, looking for ways to approach Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s three-bedroom vacation cottage, subdue her — using a stun gun if necessary — and drag her away.

One vehicle stopped to check out a boat launch while a second searched in vain for the right house in the thick woods ringing the lake. The third car ran countersurveillance, using night vision goggles to look out for cops and handheld radios to communicate with the others.

Earlier, they had scoped out a bridge over the Elk River, just a few miles away, scrambling down under the span to figure out where plastic explosives would need to be placed to blow it sky-high. That would slow police response, giving the men time to escape with the governor — who had infuriated them by imposing COVID lockdowns, among other outrages — and either take her to Lake Michigan, where they could abandon her on a boat, or whisk her to Wisconsin, where she would be tried as a “tyrant.”

But wait, there's more:

The men planned for all kinds of obstacles, but there was one they didn’t anticipate: The FBI had been listening in all along.

For six months, the Iraq War vet had been wearing a wire, gathering hundreds of hours of recordings. He wasn’t the only one. A biker who had traveled from Wisconsin to join the group was another informant. The man who’d advised them on where to put the explosives — and offered to get them as much as the task would require — was an undercover FBI agent. So was a man in one of the other cars who said little and went by the name Mark.

A very long article but one well worth reading.  The whole thing was an FBI operation.  They planned it, set it up, recruited useful idiots and tried to crucify them as terrorists when, in fact, it was an FBI operation all along. If anyone was operating outside the metes and bounds of the law, it was the FBI and not the useful idiots. A chilling read - our Nation is seriously off track from its stated goals.  Too many elite setting up their own personal fiefdoms.

Second - from The New York Post:

Michigan repeals law that gave Gov. Gretchen Whitmer emergency powers
In a rebuke to Gretchen Whitmer, the Republican-led Michigan state House of Representatives repealed a 76-year-old law that gave the governor broad emergency powers used to lock down much of the state during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a 60-48 vote mainly along party lines, the Emergency Powers Act of 1945 was officially scuttled. The state Senate had already voted to kill the act last week.

Though the legislation does not take effect immediately it was a clear shot at Whitmer, whose strict shut-down policies stirred protests last year, but also made her a political darling among Democrats.

Good - she was overstepping her bounds. Get the power back into the hands of the people. Do not circumvent the legislative process.

Juggling numbers versus narrative

| No Comments

Who 'ya gonna believe - from The Epoch Times:
(my bet is on the numbers - especially given the source of the narrative)

California is Experiencing a Crime ‘Tsunami’: Sacramento DA
California is experiencing a wave of crime despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s claims of a decrease during the past three decades, officials say.

“You’ve got violent crime off the charts,” Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert told The Epoch Times. “You’ve got this tsunami of things that are happening. Violent crime, illegal guns, [and] rampant theft.”

On July 21 in Los Angeles, when asked if state policies are making crime worse, Newsom denied the state is seeing a rise in crime.

“The evidence doesn’t back it up. Last three decades we’ve actually seen a significant decline in crime in the state,” Newsom said.

But... Those pesky numbers:
(PPIC is Public Policy Institute of California)

Data provided by PPIC shows that in 2020, Los Angeles reported a 40 percent homicide increase in comparison to 2019; Oakland reported a 36 percent increase. San Francisco and San Diego both witnessed increases from 41 to 48 percent and 50 percent to 55 percent, respectively.

More at the site - links to cooroborating data and source materials etc... Not only is crime up, they are releasing a lot of bad people early for "good behavior". Revolving door policy. Hopefully, California will get some adults in the room soon. Larry Elder looks great as a Governor.

The current immigration scandal

The more you hear about what is going on, the more you want to start stringing people up on lampposts.
From Ace of Spades:

Biden Administration Covertly Trafficked “Unaccompanied Children” To Tennessee Then Turned Them Over To Sexual Predators
Did you hear about the Biden administration trafficking minor children across state lines into Tennessee in the middle of the night, in defiance of the governor’s refusal to accept “unaccompanied immigrant” children, after which the administration stonewalled questions raised by Tennessee’s Senators. That’s bad, right? It got worse. Some of the children were sexually molested when they reached their destination.

In the very early hours of Friday May 14, an airplane landed at Chattanooga’s airport. Rather than unload at the terminal used by commercial passengers, its passengers were secretly unloaded at a private terminal, where a waiting bus took the children to La Casa de Sydney shelter in Chattanooga. No official at any city, county, or state level was advised of the incoming flight, but word quickly started leaking out. Three more planes made similar landings over the next few days.

Just a few weeks before, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee had specifically denied the Biden administration’s request to send unaccompanied children to the state, because Lee objected to Biden’s open border policy. The Biden team sent the children anyway – under cover of darkness, withholding information along the way.

Much much more at the site - bad policy making, people not being held accountable for their actions, predators allowed to predate, stupid decisions.  All with links to coorborating data and evidence. This is the progressive government at work. Nobody is holding these people accountable and they are acting as if they will get away with it.  And they do.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

House Dems Reject GOP Effort To Compel Probe Into COVID Origins
Top House Democrats voted against a Republican-led effort to compel the World Health Organization to conduct a "transparent investigation on the origins of COVID-19."

All but one of the 33 Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee voted down an amendment introduced by Rep. Ben Cline (R., Va.), which would have withheld U.S. funding to the WHO "until the Secretary of State certifies that the WHO has conducted a transparent investigation on the origins of COVID-19 and implemented regulatory changes to improve transparency and international cooperation."

If there was nothing to hide, they would welcome the vote - just to clear the air.
Just like the election audits.

Two stories today - first: the Washington Examiner:

Voting machines in Pennsylvania's Fulton County decertified after audit
Voting machines in Pennsylvania's Fulton County were decertified after local officials complied with a GOP-backed ballot audit and allowed a third-party contractor to access data.

The rural county, which borders Maryland, must do away with its Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5A voting system, employed in the 2020 presidential election, after Wake TSI, a software company, was allowed in December to gain access to and look over its “election database, results files, and Windows system logs," acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid told county officials in a letter on Tuesday.

The company, which has largely worked with clients in the healthcare sector, had "no knowledge or expertise in election technology," said Degraffenreid, who concluded the ballot hardware was "compromised."

And this, also from the Examiner

Arizona attorney general receives records on 'potential violations' of election laws
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich received records related to "potential violations" of the state's election laws.

A letter from Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs's office — which was sent on Tuesday in response to the Republican attorney general's request on July 14 asking for "any and all records … related to potential violations of Arizona’s election laws" — states the documents are partly related to a "pressure" campaign by former President Donald Trump's allies regarding the 2020 election aimed at officials in Maricopa County, where a partisan audit is underway.

I hope that they grow a pair and start putting people in the slammer - ten years would be an excellent start and a good deterrent to other people considering this. The party of slavery has nothing to offer today so they have to cheat.

Election audits - North Carolina

| No Comments

North Carolina says no - from The Epoch Times:

North Carolina State Board of Election Denies Audit Request
Citing overriding federal authority under the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the North Carolina Board of Elections (BOE) has denied a North Carolina House Freedom Caucus (HFC) request to examine voting machines.

Chairman of the caucus, Rep. Keith Kidwell (R-Beaufort), told The Epoch Times that although there is a statute that requires state employees to comply with requests for data from the North Carolina General Assembly, Karen Brinson Bell, executive director of the elections board, declined the request to inspect voting equipment used in the November 2020 election in a July 7 letter.

And they seemed initially to be open to the idea:

Before the denial, the HFC met with the BOE twice, and Kidwell added that Elections Systems & Software (ES&S), the largest election vendor for North Carolina, agreed to provide access to three voting systems it manufactures.

At the time, ES&S indicated that they would be willing to take any inspected system at a randomly selected precinct by the HFC and recertify the equipment so that there would be no cost to the BOE or county, Kidwell said.

ES&S, he said, “seemed eager” to have the inspection to relieve the public concerns about the equipment.

But they are now saying no.  Why? Simple question. Why?

The North Carolina laws are very clear on this - again, why are they stonewalling?

Pelosi Aide, White House Official Who Welcomed Texas Democrats to Capitol Test Positive For Covid-19
A fully vaccinated aide for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a White House official tested positive for Covid-19 after welcoming Democrat Texas lawmakers to the Capitol.

Last Monday 60 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.

And the Democrats are now up to six persons testing positive.  Let's get some adults in the room please.  Now?

Stupid stupid move - these people are toxic and incurable. From The London Daily Mail:

Biden transfers his first detainee out of Guantanamo Bay: Moroccan man, 56, accused of being a Taliban fighter is sent home after 19 years in custody in sign administration will start releasing more prisoners

    • Joe Biden for the first time transferred a prisoner out of Guantanamo Bay prison
    • Abdullatif Nasser, 56, was repatriated to his home in Morocco on Monday
    • The detainee was cleared for release in July 2016, but remained in the Cuba prison throughout Donald Trump's presidency
    • Nassar was accused of being a former Taliban fighter who fought U.S. invading forces in 2001 in the Tora Bora mountains in Afghanistan
    • He was never charged with a crime
    • The release exhibits Biden's commitment to closing the prison for good

The Biden administration on Monday transferred a detainee out of the Guantánamo Bay detention facility for the first time, sending a Moroccan man back home five years after he was recommended for discharge.

So far, we have turned Afghanistan over to them with all of our equipment, electronics and intellegence.
Now, we are releasing the worst of the worst.
Do we want to fight the same war again in ten years?
Do we want another 9/11?
This administration certainly seems to be asking for it.

Make that five - Texas kiddies

Used to be just three, now it is five lawmakers testing positive. From FOX News:

Two more Texas Democrats test positive for COVID after fleeing election vote
Two more Texas Democrats have tested positive for coronavirus during the trip to Washington, D.C., just one day after three of their colleagues learned they had contracted the virus as well.

According to the Texas Tribune, the number of COVID-positive Texas state lawmakers in the nation's capital is now five. The news comes on the same day that Vice President Kamala Harris visited Walter Reed Medical Center for a "routine" visit after meeting with the group of lawmakers just last week.

And of course, if these were Republicans, this would be all over the news - major superspreader event.  OMG what were they thinking? The reporters would be clutching their pearls and shrieking. But, of course, Republicans would not do such a childish thing as chartering an airplane to avoid their responsibility.

But then again, gee - could this be a political stunt so they do not have to return to Texas and face the results of their actions? Talk about acting like a five-year-old kid.

The Democrats may cherry pick and spin their numbers but this really puts things into perspective.
From SocketSite (Plug In to San Francisco Real Estate Tips, Trends and the Local Scoop):

Visualizing All the Vacant Office Space in San Francisco
As we outlined yesterday, there is over 17 million square feet of vacant office space now spread across San Francisco, which is up from around 16 million square feet of vacant space three months ago and as compared to under 5 million square feet of vacant space at the start of last year.

That is a lot of empty office space.  They were booming a few years ago.  Now? Rampant mismanagement, ancillary costs are too damn high, cost of living is too damn high.  Time to get some adults back in charge and bring things back to some semblance of normalcy.

And people were so upset about President Trump being "mean" From MSN/Newsweek - July 3rd
Talk about burying a story - she introduced it in April and they "report" it the day before the Glorious Fourth.

Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'Fire Fauci Act' Gains Co-Sponsors After Email Dump
Representatives Buddy Carter and Bob Good signed onto fellow Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene's legislation that would reduce the salary of Dr. Anthony Fauci, America's leading infectious disease expert, to $0.

The release of thousands of Fauci's emails ignited renewed criticism of his response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the early dismissal of the Wuhan Institute of Virology as the origin of the outbreak.

Some legislators have called for Fauci to be fired from his position as director of the National Institute of Virology, and Candace Owens, a conservative commentator, went as far as to advocate for his imprisonment.

Greene is a longtime critic of Fauci and has been advocating for his termination since December. In April, she introduced a bill in the house called the Fire Fauci Act, which didn't expressly call for his termination but would reduce his salary from more than $400,000 to nothing.

Just heard about it now - seems to be gaining quite a lot of support. Fauci is a tool. Nothing more.
I love MTG - she is bringing things to people's attention that the deep-state would rather leave alone.

Always happens when you go for divisiveness.  The various factions which are all supposed to be on the correct side of the narrative start eating each other.  Like I said, this always happens.  All you have to do is to study the history of Russia or China or Cuba or Cambodia or...

Once the people in power feel secure in their power, they start killing off those people - Stalin called them "useful idiots" - who helped them gain power but who were hoping for the power themselves.  They were promised the power and the money and the elitism but there is only so much of that to go around and the people in power want it all for them selves.

Thanks for your service comrade. Against the wall please. Bang. Next.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Classic case in point from The Right Scoop:

Facebook ENDS Joe Biden in HILARIOUSLY harsh response to him calling them murderers
On Friday, Jen Psaki and Joe Biden decided to use social media as a scapegoat for the perceived failure of the gov’t to get the vaccine into every human arm on these shores.

Biden said that Facebook is killing people, and Facebook has now struck back at him, essentially telling him to shove it where the vaccine don’t shine.

“We will not be distracted by accusations which aren’t supported by the facts. The fact is that more than 2 billion people have viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 vaccines on Facebook, which is more than any other place on the internet. More than 3.3 million Americans have also used our vaccine finder tool to find out where and how to get a vaccine,” it reads.

In a direct response to Biden saying Facebook kills people, they responded that “The facts show that Facebook is helping save lives. Period.”

Biden is a flaccid fool - a meat puppet. Facebook is saying that it has more power than he does.
After all - they helped elect the poor fool.
Social media running the world is straight out of Orwell's 1984. Almost word for word.

From FOX News:

'Squad' member Cori Bush, a 'defund the police' advocate, recently spent $70,000 on private security
Missouri Rep. Cori Bush spent nearly $70,000 on private security over the past three months as she advocated for defunding the police, campaign filings show.

Bush's campaign sent $54,120.92 in payments between April 15 and June 28 for "security services" to RS&T Security Consulting, a New York-based firm with a mysterious online presence, Federal Election Commission records released Thursday show. The Democrat's campaign also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for "security services" over the same time period.

The $69,120 in security payments accounted for more than a third of Bush's $197,000 in campaign expenditures during the second quarter, the FEC records show. It's also nearly double what her campaign spent on private security during the first quarter of 2021.

And of course, after recieving $54K, they go dark - but - the internet is forever:

RS&T's website is no longer active, but a cached version of its now-defunct website shows that the group provides "executive protection agents" that provide "first class executive protection and security for national and international figures."

No word at the site but I hope someone does some digging into RS&T's corporate structure.  I would not be surprised if there was a Bush cousin or uncle standing to benefit from Rep. Bush's security needs. Why doesn't she just call 911.  That is what the majority of We The People have.

Must be nice. Especially on the taxpayer dime.  Our dollars at work.

Must maintain control of the masses

Can't let them think the crisis is over.  We have to exert our power and keep them cowed.
From the Los Angeles Times:

L.A. County will require masks indoors amid alarming rise in coronavirus cases
Just a month ago, Los Angeles County and the rest of California celebrated a long-awaited reopening, marking the tremendous progress made in the battle against COVID-19 by lifting virtually all restrictions on businesses and other public spaces. Now, the coronavirus is resurgent, and the nation’s most-populous county is scrambling to beat back the pandemic’s latest charge.

Starting Saturday night, residents will again be required to wear masks in indoor public spaces, regardless of their vaccination status.

The latest order not only puts the county further at odds with both the California Department of Public Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — both of which continue to maintain that vaccinated people need not cover their faces indoors — but puts officials in the precarious position of asking the inoculated to forfeit one of the benefits recently enjoyed.

“This is an all-hands-on-deck moment,” said Dr. Muntu Davis, the county’s health officer.

Once again.  Masks do nothing. The vaccines work but they are experimental, the companies manufacturing them have no liability for injury or death.  Many covid diagnoses are false positives and over 90% of "covid deaths" are actually a result of one or more co-morbidity.  Gun shot wounds, automobile accidents, heart, lung or liver disease, cancer, etc...  These deaths have all been coded as covid deaths to fudge the numbers.

The Democrats needed a crisis to cover for the fact that they have nothing.

Once again:
"When the people who are telling us that there is a crisis start acting like there is a crisis, then I will believe that there is a crisis."
Hard to argue with that simple truth

And it starts - Texas Democrats

Could not be happening to a more deserving group of children - seeing the consequences of their actions.
From Bryan Preston writing at PJ Media:

Major Texas Democrat Stripped of Leadership Post for Fleeing the State
State Rep. Joe Moody (D-El Paso) has been stripped of his position as speaker pro tem in the Texas House following his decision to flee the state in order to stymie the ongoing special session that Gov. Greg Abbott called.

House Speaker Dade Phelan, a Beaumont Republican, announced the removal of Moody as speaker pro tem in a memo Thursday morning before the House was set to return on Thursday. He gave no statement but said the removal was effective immediately.

“The most important titles in my life will never change: Dad, Husband, El Pasoan,” Moody said in a statement. “Nothing political has ever even cracked the top three, so nothing has changed about who I am or what my values are.”

Moody is (or was) one of Speaker Phelan’s closest Democrat allies. Two of the terms he used to describe himself — Dad and husband — are gender-specific terms forbidden by the rules adopted by the Democratic leadership in the United States House of Representatives.

Calls to strip Democrats who fled Texas from their House leadership posts have been growing throughout the week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Matt Rinaldi clarified that yes, leaders appointed to their posts by Speaker Dade Phelan can be stripped of their leadership assignments. Moody is the first Democrat known to be subjected to it. Speaker Phelan did not start small with this move.

More. Faster. Please.  Good - they want to act out, give them a taste of their own medicine.

BLM is really outing itself for what it really is - a bunch of Marxists trying to take over the government by sowing racism and division. From The Post Millenial:

BLM comes out in support of the Cuban communist regime—'condemns the US'
Black Lives Matter (BLM) issued a statement condemning the US federal government, not Cuba's communist regime, over its "inhumane treatment" of the Cuban people. Pro-freedom demonstrations have been ongoing on the island nation since Sunday.

If Cuba was such a workers paradise, why didn't Patrisse Cullors - trained marxist and co-founder of BLM buy her three mansions there.  I bet the imperialist Yankee Dollar would buy some really nice properties on the island.
Bunch of stupid wankers.

Ouch - Baghdad Bob

I remember his broadcasts from 2003 - so full of hope and denial and propaganda.
From Robert Stacey McCain:

20210715-bagdhad.jpg

Lots of peaceful protests rioting happening down there.  What is happening there that did not happen in the USA is that the rioters are destroying the infrastructures.  A lot of ATMs are gone, supply lines are broken, no money, no food, no gasoline.  Going to get nasty.  A real worker's paradise.

Same thing as here - an elite with a communist agenda are pulling the strings from behind their compound walls. They think that they will be sitting on top of the world when the dust settles.  Little do they know that they will be the first against the wall. Happened in Russia, happened in China, happened in South East Asia, happened in Cuba, happens everywhere. Ignore history at your peril.
