There was already an established precedent. From National File:

Capitol Hill Police Officer Claims, Without Evidence, That Crowd of Trump Supporters Repeatedly Called Him N****r On 1/6
Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn told the January 6 Select Committee, without evidence, that a crowd of Trump supporters repeatedly called him a racial slur during the protests.

Dunn, a Capitol Police officer who is an admitted Democrat, spoke during the first hearing of the January 6 Select Committee on Tuesday, and described various scenes that strain credulity and supposedly occurred during the protests. Dunn said that he told many of them to leave the Capitol building, but in response they allegedly yelled, “no man, this is our house. President Trump invited us here. We’re here to stop the steal. Joe Biden is not the President. Nobody voted for Joe Biden.”

He then claimed that after he informed the protesters that he, in fact, voted for Biden, the revelation prompted a “torrent of racial epithets” being thrown from the crowd towards him. “One woman in a pink MAGA shirt yelled, ‘you hear that guys? This n****r voted for Joe Biden’,” he said. “Then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people, joined in screaming, ‘boo! F**king n*****r!’ No-one had ever, ever called me a n****r while wearing the uniform of a Capitol Police officer,” Dunn added.

EGAP = Everybody's Got A Phone
You would think that the liberal media would be frothing at the mouth to be able to air some footage of a Trump supporter calling a uniformed Capitol Police Officer the "N" word.  CNN would have paid $100K for that video file - just to reinforce their narrative. The person who recorded it would be able to write their own ticket - talk shows, maybe even a book deal. They would never have to worry about that student loan for their MA in Gender Studies.

Instead? Crickets.

And the precedent? From March of 2010

McClatchy:
Tea party protesters call Georgia's John Lewis 'nigger'
Demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol, angry over the proposed health care bill, shouted "nigger" Saturday at U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia congressman and civil rights icon who was nearly beaten to death during an Alabama march in the 1960s.

Breitbart:
No More Beer Summits: Tea Party 'N-Word' Incident Didn't Happen, And the Congressional Black Caucus Owes America an Apology
Rep. Andre Carson wants to change the subject. I don’t blame him.

On April 13, 2010 he told AP reporter Jesse Washington, “I think we need to move toward a dialogue that explores why this kind of divisive and reprehensible language is still making it into our political debate.”

The “divisive and reprehensible language” that Rep. Carson is referring to is his claim that while he left the Cannon office building on March 20 with Rep. John Lewis, they were verbally assaulted by health care protesters hurling the “N-word” at them. He said the scene was so hostile he “expected rocks to come” when he was coming out of Cannon.

I wanted to see the evidence. I wanted the truth. In the course of our search we have actually uncovered further video evidence that casts serious doubt on Rep.Carson’s claims

And Andrew's offer:

When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that this occurred, I was accused of a publicity stunt (because everyone knows that the best way to get publicity in America is to accuse a civil rights icon of lying about racism). Rep. Carson himself suggested that my challenge was “a veiled attempt to justify actions that are simply unjustifiable.” Get it? He calls protesters racist and if you ask him to prove it, you’re a racist, too.

Needless to say, no one has claimed the $100,000.

Photographs of the event showed a lot of cell phones being held out to record the goings on.
Nobody claimed the $100,000 reward.

The internet is forever - the idiots who make these claims (and yes, they are idiots - they are simply not that intelligent) would have been wise to study where tactics like this have been successful and where they have failed.  Never go full retard.  You do not want to go full retard.

CNN better come up with something quick if it wants to survive.  They certainly are not making any money with what they are doing now.  From American Greatness:

CNN’s Sparsely-Attended Biden Town Hall Flops in the Cable News Ratings
CNN’s town hall event with Joe Biden bombed Wednesday night, trailing not only Fox News, but also MSNBC in the Nielsen ratings.

The town hall train-wreck, which was moderated by Don Lemon at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio, reportedly averaged only 1.5 million viewers from 8-9:30 p.m. ET, compared to 2.7 million viewers for Fox News during the same time period.

MSNBC averaged 1.6 million viewers, placing CNN’s highly promoted event in third place among the top cable news stations. A CNN town hall with Biden in February did significantly better, drawing 3.5 million viewers, and beating the audience of both Fox News and MSNBC.

The sparsely-attended event was dubbed a train-wreck after Biden repeatedly struggled to focus, babbling incoherently when asked to address important issues.

And we already saw the video of Biden with Alan Jones' commentary earlier today.

The guy is having serious problems and to all of his handlers?
I want to see them brought up on charges of elder abuse.

It will be interesting to see if anyone tries to invoke the 25th Amendment. Harris is in waay over her head and not at all popular. Pelosi?  Maybe this is what she is angling for. Wouldn't put it past her - she is #3 after all.

Got to love it - some Texas State Representatives learn that actions have consequences.
If they want a seat at the adults table, they have to be...  'ya know... adults.
From Tyler O'neil writing at PJ Media:

Texas Dems Vote With Their Feet... for a Federal Takeover of Election Law
Almost every single Democrat in the Texas House of Representatives plans to leave Austin on Monday in an attempt to stymie the special session that Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) called. As PJ Media’s Bryan Preston reported, Abbott called the special session in order to advance legislation on election integrity, border security, social media censorship, family violence prevention, protecting women’s sports, fighting critical race theory, and curbing access to abortion-inducing drugs, among other things.

At least 58 of the 67 Democrats in the Texas House plan to skip out on their jobs, an echo of the stunt Democrats pulled in 2003, NBC News reported. The move would paralyze the chamber.

Most of the Democrats plan to fly to Washington, D.C., in order to rally for H.R. 1, the federal takeover of elections that Democrats dub the “For the People Act.” According to NBC News’ source, most the Democrats plan to fly on two private jets.

Under the Texas Constitution, the legislature requires a quorum of two-thirds of lawmakers to be present to conduct state business. Absent lawmakers can be legally compelled to return to the Capitol, so state police may arrest the Democrats who skip out on their jobs.

And, considering that last paragraph - from American Military News:

Texas House votes to track down, arrest 58 Democrat members who fled if they don’t return
Members of the Texas state House voted 76-4 to deploy law enforcement to track down and arrest 58 Democrat members who fled the state to break quorum to prevent a vote on a Republican-backed election bill.

The House members voted on two motions brought by Rep. Will Metcalf, chair of the House Administration Committee to record present session members, ban members in attendance from leaving the chamber without first obtaining approval, and enable “the sergeant at arms, or officers appointed by him, send for all absentees … under warrant of arrest if necessary.”

Heh - they had their fun.  Love the photos from the bus with the case of Miller Lite on the seat and from the private airplane. Now, it is time to pay the piper. Want to act like a six-year old? You get time-out.

Trying to watch it but it keeps breaking up.  Do not know how many people are logged in but I am guessing that the servers are experiencing a bit higher than usual load.  I'll try again tomorrow.

Funny too - for shits and giggles, I looked on YouTube and there he was: President Donald Trump's Full Speech At CPAC | The New York Times

Clicked and turned out it was a speech from Feb 24, 2017 that had been posted.  Trust the New York Times to do something like this.  Of course, if they ever do own up to it, they will call it an IT Error and publish an apology at the bottom of page 17.

From The Epoch Times:

Pennsylvania Department of State Tells Counties Not to Allow Outside Access to Voting Systems
The Pennsylvania agency in charge of elections has issued a new directive telling counties not to let outside parties access electronic voting systems or components of such systems, such as tabulators and ballot printers.

The directive from the Pennsylvania Department of State, released on July 9, states that county boards of elections “shall not” provide any access to third parties that are seeking to examine the systems or system components.

If the counties do allow access, the voting equipment that’s examined “will be considered no longer secure or reliable to use in subsequent elections,” and the department will withdraw its certification for the equipment.

“Such access by third parties undermines chain of custody requirements and strict access limitations necessary to prevent both intentional and inadvertent tampering with electronic voting systems,” Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid, appointed in February by Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf, said in a statement. “It also jeopardizes the security and integrity of the systems and will prevent electronic voting system vendors from affirming that the systems continue to meet Commonwealth security standards and U.S. Election Assistance Commission certification.”

Their reasons are epic in their bogosity.  If the auditors were able to make changes in the way the voting machines operate, the Secretary of State could determine this and correct the next time the machines were used in an election.  A simple matter of resetting them to factory specs and reloading the software.

If there is nothing to hide in the 2020 Presidential Election, why are so many Democrats throwing up such a hissy fit over a simple audit. They reveal themselves in their protest.

The two-page directive can be found here:  "DIRECTIVE CONCERNING ACCESS TO ELECTRONIC VOTING SYSTEMS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMAGING OF SOFTWARE AND MEMORY FILES, ACCESS TO RELATED INTERNAL COMPONENTS, AND THE CONSEQUENCES TO COUNTY BOARDS OF ALLOWING SUCH ACCESS"

Suprised that they are not invoking a kitchen sink - they list everything else.
The equivalent of throwing a handfull of poo and seeing what sticks.
See what happens in a court of law.

A few days ago, it was announced that Pennsylvania would be going through an audit of the 2020 November election. Needless to say, for some strange incomprehensible reason, a certain wing of the government is throwing up all kinds of roadblocks.  Almost as though there was somthing that they wanted to hide:

The good news is that the State of Pennsylvania is going ahead with the audit.
State Senator Doug Mastriano:

Wonderful news - take our country back from the corrupt hands and get it back into the hands of We The People.

If there was nothing to worry about, the Democrats would not be moving heaven and earth to stop these audits.

A very thorough job - from The Epoch Times:

Arizona Senate Conducting New Count of Maricopa County Ballots
The ballots cast in Arizona’s largest county in the 2020 election will be counted for a third time on orders from the state’s Senate.

Nearly 2.1 million ballots submitted in Maricopa County for the presidential contest were tabulated, as normal, by election officials. They were recounted by hand by audit teams hired by the Arizona Senate in a process that was completed late last month.

Now the Senate will do its own recount that will provide a number to compare to those from the county and from the auditors.

“Maricopa County says there’s 2,089,563 ballots. We did the hand count, and they’re finalizing that number, but we just wanted a third number to tie everything together, make sure we have more—the more data points, the better,” former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, the Senate’s audit liaison, told The Epoch Times.

The new count will focus on the number of ballots and will not count the actual votes, unlike the first two tabulations.

Very good idea - if there was a swath of ballots brought in at the last moment to sway the vote towards Biden, the democrats would want to make them dissapear.  To do a total tally now at the end of the process will showcase this if it has happened. There have been enough reports of ballots on different paper, ballots with xeroxed votes, mail-in ballots with unfolded paper, etc... to know that something was very rotten.

Clever and simple idea.

Good news from New York City

The good guy won the vote even through the deep state tried to fix it.
From The New York Post:

Eric Adams declared winner of the primary, most likely next NYC mayor
Eric Adams won the Democratic nomination in the race to replace Mayor Bill de Blasio — squeaking out a narrow victory in the ranked-choice primary, according to a preliminary count of the final vote tally Tuesday evening.

Adams emerged narrowly ahead of Kathryn Garcia, 50.5 percent to 49.5 percent, according to unofficial figures posted on the BOE’s website.

Adams declared the primary race over in an evening statement.

Garcia was the deep-state choice - Adams is a Democrat but he is a retired Police Officer and is very conservative. A classical liberal. Needless to say, there were some voting "irregularities" which almost tipped the race to Garcia.

*Resident Biden won with 80,000,000 votes - or so they tell us.  He recently did a whistle-stop tour through Michigan (a very safe Democrat state) and here are the people lining up to see him during his stop at the ice cream stand/grocery store:

TODAY HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN ISSUED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT:

On August 24th, 1814 units of the British Army , in conjunction with the Royal Marines, came ashore in the American State of Maryland, and proceeded to capture the American Capital of Washington D.C. Once in possession of the city, as a legitimate reprisal under the laws of war, Our forces proceeded to set afire every public building in the city, including both the White House and the Congressional Chambers; sparing only the Patent Office, in the name of scientific advancement.

Given that the bicentennial of these events has recently passed, I would like to take this opportunity to assure the citizens of the United States that, in light of the deep and permanent ties that have since arisen between our two nations, it would be quite impossible for Our Armed Forces to again burn all of the governmental offices in Washington D.C. and certainly not while they are occupied.

So please stop asking.

Thank you.

H.M. Elizabeth II

Tip of the hat from Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man

Looks like the Biden interregnum is experiencing extreme inflation.
Same as his policies are forcing on us. Saw this at the London Daily Mail:

Jen Psaki tops the most expensive White House payroll in HISTORY: Press secretary is one of 22 Biden staffers getting $180K a year in list of 567 staffers that cost taxpayers $49.6M
President Joe Biden has the most expensive payroll in White House history with 22 aides, including press secretary Jen Psaki and chief of staff Ron Klain, making the maximum yearly salary of $180,000.

The White House on Thursday released its annual staff report to Congress, revealing the salaries of 567 White House employees, which cost taxpayers $49.6 million.

The projected four-year costs of Biden's White House payroll could top $200 million, according to an analysis by Forbes, which would top the staff costs of the past two presidents.

Adjusted for inflation, the Trump administration spent $164.3 million during his one term in office and the Obama administration spent $188.5 million in his first term.

I got curious and looked for President Trump's numbers - everything points to around 370 people, not 567.
One article here at Heavy (from July 31st, 2017):

Donald Trump White House Staff: Full List of Employees
President Donald Trump is continuing to shake up his staff, with White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci departing the administration on Friday.

This is the third high-profile White House departure to take place just in the last 10 days alone. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus also recently announced their resignations.

Clearly, this White House has been a bit chaotic, with firings and hirings happening almost every week. But there are also hundreds of White House employees who we never hear from and whose names have virtually never been in the news. Recently, the White House released its full list of employees, also including their salaries and pay basis.

According to this list, there are currently 377 people working in the White House. This includes five people who contribute to speech writing: Brittany Baldwin, Vincent Haley, Ryan Jarmula, Theodore Royer, and Ross Worthington.

President Trump was able to accomplish a lot more with 66.5% of the staff. All President Biden's staff have to do is give him his meds, make sure he gets his pudding and keep Harris from propping her feet up on the Resolute desk.

Politico is a proud member of the Democrat Media Cartel.  For them to publish something this critical of our beloved Vice President indicates that things are worse than we realize. From Politico:

‘Not a healthy environment’: Kamala Harris’ office rife with dissent
When Vice President Kamala Harris finally made the decision to visit the Mexico border last week, people inside her own office were blindsided by the news.

For days, aides and outside allies had been calling and texting with each other about the political fallout that a potential trip would entail. But when it became known that she was going to El Paso, it left many scrambling, including officials who were responsible for making travel arrangements and others outside the VP’s office charged with crafting the messaging across the administration.

The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication and diminished trust among aides and senior officials. Much of the frustration internally is directed at Tina Flournoy, Harris’ chief of staff, a veteran of Democratic politics who began working for her earlier this year.

In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue.

She was over her head as a lawyer, let alone the California Attorney General, let alone Vice President.
I can't wait for the 25th Ammendment to kick in and her to ascend to the Presidency.
Welcome to the shit-show.

From New York City station WPIX:

Board of Elections appears to delete latest NYC mayoral primary numbers after acknowledging discrepancy
Just hours after New York City’s Board of Elections released ranked choice voting numbers showing a shrinking lead for mayoral contender Eric Adams, officials acknowledged a discrepancy in the ballot count.

Shortly after that, the results they’d posted to their site disappeared and a message read that unofficial results would be available starting Wednesday. The BOE did not explain why they removed the results.

Adams is a retired cop.  Very much into law and order. Democrat but in the classical conservative sense.
Kathryn Garcia is the candidate from the deep state.  They want her in office and are trying to make this happen.

Quite the speech - President Trump

Did not watch it last night but will do this evening - he is in great form.
He closed with this:

We must never forget this country does not belong to them. It belongs to you, the American people. This is your home. This nation is your heritage and our magnificent American liberty is your God-given right. The people of this land will not be ruled and talked down to by corrupt politicians, petty tyrants, left-wing bullies or socialist bureaucrats in a place called Washington D.C. It’s not gonna happen.

Our ancestors are the people that crossed an ocean for the right to live and pray and speak as they saw fit. They are the people who risked everything. They risked everything. Think of what, you’re here, and you’re generally happy, not necessarily 100% because of what took place. But they are the people who risked their lives to boldly declare their independence and then defeated the most powerful military on Earth to win their freedom.

Brave, incredible, brilliant people. And our ancestors are the people who tamed the great wilderness, settled the vast continent, laid down the railroads, raised up the skyscrapers and poured out their blood, sweat and tears to build this country into the greatest nation in the history of the world and we’re not going to let it go. We will respect our heroes, like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.

They will not be taken from us. America is still the nation that conquered the wild west, that vanquished murderous dictators that ended the evil empires and that sent a brave, young man from Ohio to the Moon. There’s no mountain we cannot climb. There’s no summit we cannot reach. There is nothing that we cannot do, there is absolutely nothing that we cannot match. There is no challenge that you will let us down. You will never let us down.

The people of Ohio will never let us down. The people of our country will never let us down. We will not bend. We will not break. We will not yield. We will never give in. We will never give up. We will never back down. We will never, ever surrender. My fellow Americans, our movement is far from over. In fact, our fight has only just begun.

We are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious nation under God. So with American pride swelling in our hearts, and American courage stirring in our souls, I say these words to you tonight.

We will make America powerful again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again! Thank you Ohio. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Just WOW!  Downright Presidential. Comapre and contrast with the current *Resident.

Preliminary results to be announced this Monday - from the Gateway Pundit:

HISTORY MADE AS FINAL ARIZONA BALLOT INSPECTIONS COMPLETED
Huge Preliminary Report Expected Monday When True Number of Ballot Totals Announced

Earlier this afternoon, volunteers slammed a box closed and cheered in celebration after the final ballots were inspected.

TGP reported that the results will be released in two phases:
1.) On Monday we may see a preliminary report, which details the accuracy of the number of certified ballots.
2.) We then expect to see a full forensic report which details the forensic images and ballot findings.
This is HUGE.

On Monday, we will know the true number of ballots that were cast in Maricopa County. If it is drastically different than the number of certified ballots, as expected with the discrepancies found, there will be severe consequences for Doug Ducey and Katie Hobbs.

The Arizona State Senate will need to consider decertifying the results if they cannot prove that Biden was the winner. Attorney General Mark Brnovich will need to initiate an investigation into those involved in the scam and the cover-up.

Obvious that there was cheating.  Very blatent cheating from the reports that have come out.
We live in interesting times indeed...

No scandal there.  Oops... From the non-partisan Election Integrity Project - California

Dear Secretary Weber,
Based on its analysis of the VoteCal voter registration and voting history files of February 9, 2021, Election Integrity Project® California, Inc. (EIPCa) submits the following findings. This analysis exposed over 7,700 registrants each of whom have two votes credited to their Registration ID number in the November 2020 election and almost 124,000 more votes counted than voters with histories for that election. There are also more than 1.8 million ineligible registrants in the state. Finally, EIPCa identified over 108,000 who have had their out-of-country or out-of-state birthplaces inexplicably changed to California or United States by the on-line or DMV voter registration systems. EIPCa is submitting its findings for investigation as described in this letter and contained in an encrypted Excel report transmitted today to Sam Burgess in your VoteCal department.

Importantly, this report follows two EIPCa Findings Reports submitted earlier. The first on 4/30/21. The second on 5/18/21. These reports have been ignored. Further, Mr. Burgess has not responded to reminders that he needs to contact EIPCa to obtain the passwords for encrypted Excel files.

Respectfully, so this current Findings Report is not simply ignored as the two prior reports have been, EIPCa is submitting it pursuant to the policy of California election law generally as exemplified in California’s Voter Bill of Rights §2300(a)(9)(B). This statute states: “You have the right to ask questions of the… elections officials regarding election procedures and to receive an answer or be directed to the appropriate official for an answer.” Pursuant to this policy, EIPCa submits its questions under each of the findings below, with the reasonable expectation that responses will be timely provided.

Four pages of inconvenient truths for the Democrats. Lots of "funny stuff" going on. Malarkey all the way. They also note the trend of Ineligible Registrations has gone up by 72% since 2017 - a steep rise.  They got away with a little bit of it so now they are emboldened and are trying to get away with a lot. Again, not surprising.  The Democrats have nothing to offer and so, to stay in power, they have to cheat and lie.

Her history is not a pleasant read - one such example:

20210622-omar.jpg

Her interests are not in line with what is best for America or for her constituents.
And nobody is standing up to her for fear of their own history being brought to light.

President Putin does remember 2011

| No Comments

And is doing an epic troll of Biden the elder.  From Trending Politics:

Vladimir Putin Trolls Joe Biden For His “Good Memory”
During an NBC interview before the planned meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Joe Biden, Putin appeared to troll Biden for his “good memory” in relation to comments that he allegedly previously made.

“Well, President Biden says — one time when you met, you were inches away from each other, close to each other,” reporter Keir Simmons started. “And he said to you, ‘I’m looking in your eyes, and I can’t see a soul.’ And you said, ‘We understand each other.’ Do you remember that exchange?”

“As far as soul, I’m not sure. One has to think about what soul is. But I do not remember this particular part of our conversations, to be honest with you. I do not remember,” Putin said, adding, “And— as far as soul goes, that’s something for the church.”

Putin added later on in the interview, “I do not remember this, something wrong with my memory.”

“He says it was about it was 10 years ago, 10 years ago when he was vice president, he says,” the reporter persisted.

“Well, he probably has a good memory,” Putin replied, clearly poking fun at Biden’s mental decline.

Video of the full interview and transcript of this segment at the site. Elder abuse. It will be interesting to see if the video of the upcoming meeting is released - Putin is running rings around our Nation and the Democrat Party in particular. I wish we could hire him to clean our Washington D.C. - come over here for a few years, do a grand reset and then go back to running Russia...

Russian President Putin is meeting with our *Resident Biden in two days in Switzerland.
President Putin is asking the US Government to reveal the name of the person who shot Ashli Babbitt:

Been how many days and we still do not know who murdered her? Makes me wonder if this meeting with Biden will be any less humiliating than this one in 2011.

As Joe Biden’s White House stenographer, I stood directly behind Putin at a distance of five feet. Biden, seated across from Putin at an elegant conference table, was about 12 feet from me.

About 10 minutes into the meeting, Vice President Biden attempted to start lecturing about his decades-old part in U.S.-Russian negotiations with the dreaded phrase, “I’ve been around a long time. The first time I was here…”

And… cut.

Joe Biden got about one sentence further into that spiel when off went his microphone, off went the lights for the TV cameras, and stern Russian voices were commanding the press to leave. And leave they did.

They went out quickly and efficiently, with videocameras popping off of tripods. Equipment snapping shut. Portable lights clattering down retractable poles. No one spoke, and no one dared linger.

This was Putin in all his KGB ruthlessness. Whether by some prearranged signal or simply an undisclosed time limit, he had pulled the plug and done the unthinkable: he’d stolen Joe Biden’s audience and rendered him speechless. Shut him down in mid-sentence with the flick of an invisible switch.

Across the table, I could see Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, in the now dimly lit room, looking as duped as an exhausted fish in the bottom of a boat. No protest, no complaint. No, hey, I wasn’t finished. Nothing. He was humiliated.

To me, the revelation was the premeditated precision of the snub. Putin or his team had likely plotted this all out. They knew exactly what bait to use, exactly how Joe Biden would take it, and then when he did, they reeled him helplessly in.

The Russian President and his delegation sat calmly and coldly as their American counterparts realized their blustery leader’s big moment had been stolen right out from under him. The most powerful man in Russia had neither fear nor respect for Joe Biden. He had just played with him for sport.

That was ten years ago.  I doubt that Joe Biden even remembers the incident. Much more at the site - it goes beyond this. President Putin is still having fun - from Sean Hannity at FOX News:

Putin challenged President Biden to an on-air conversation to discuss Biden’s latest warning that Putin would "pay a price," following a report containing evidence of attempted Russian-interference in the 2020 election.

"I’ve just thought of this now," Putin told a reporter in Moscow Thursday. "I want to invite President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it actually live. But with no delays, directly in an open, direct discussion."

What we are seeing is not politics, it is elder abuse.

Also wonderful news from Fort Worth, Texas - FOX News:

Mattie Parker wins over Deborah Peoples in Fort Worth mayor race
Mattie Parker has defeated Deborah Peoples in Saturday’s runoff election to decide who will replace longtime Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price.

Parker won over Peoples with 54% of the vote, and will be sworn in as the mayor of Fort Worth on June 15.

This race a nonpartisan race, but there were partisan overtones.

Peoples, a former executive with AT&T and the former chair of the Tarrant County Democratic Party, has been backed by Beto O’Rourke and the Texas Democratic Party.

And the differences between the two were pretty much party-line divisions:

Peoples focused on her message, called One Forth Worth, wanting all voices to be included.

All Hail Diversity - how about something specific? No? All she had was some feel-good narrative

Parker said she wants the city to take off and not be in the shadow of Dallas anymore.

"It’s the economy, it’s the world class infrastructure, it’s education for every neighborhood, and offering growth and opportunity for all residents and cutting that red tape that is there," Parker said. "Back to working together, being consensus builders because that is the number one job as a mayor."

Specific. Promises and accountability.
Fort Worth is the 14th largest City in the USA - it deserves a strong leader.

Sad really:

If Kennedy (or someone like him) were running today, he would get my vote in a heartbeat.
No wonder the deep-state had him killed.

Nothing that does not agree with the destruction that we are seeing. From the Washington Examiner:

Obama says Biden is 'finishing' the job of his administration
Former President Barack Obama said President Joe Biden is "finishing the job" of his administration in an interview released on Tuesday.

Obama told the New York Times that his former vice president is finishing the goals laid out during his time in office, noting that 90% of his former staffers "are continuing and building on the policies we talked about, whether it’s the Affordable Care Act or our climate change agenda and the Paris [climate deal]."

“I think that what we’re seeing now is Joe and the administration are essentially finishing the job,” Obama added.

Joe is just a meat-puppet at this point. They change his depends regularly, give him pudding on Thursdays and let him ogle the very young girls so he is happy. He is not aware of what he is doing or where he really is. The good news is that he does have people telling him what to do, what to say and what to think.  Hate to think of what we would have if he were really running the show by himself.

This is Barky's third term and it will cement his legacy as a failed ideologue and the worst President in recent history.

Curious... Very very curious...

It is not a conspiracy theory if it actually happens. From Russia Today:

Trump expects to get reinstated as president by August, New York Times’ Maggie Haberman claims, sparking storm
Maggie Haberman, a CNN analyst and Washington correspondent for the New York Times, sparked controversy on social media after she claimed former President Donald Trump has been telling people he will soon return to the presidency.

“Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August,” claimed Haberman on Twitter Tuesday, adding that she was “simply sharing the information.”

I would not mind that at all.  It would also bring the scandal to a boil during the November election cycle.  Hopefully, a lot of people would not get the results they wanted and/or paid Dominion for.

No comparison really...

A man of few words - known as Silent Cal. He was prescient with this speech.
Delivered May 15, 1926 at William & Mary College, Williamsburg, VA

Address at William & Mary College
Fellow Americans:

No one who is interested in the early beginnings of America, or who is moved by love of our country, could come into these historic and hallowed surroundings without being conscious of a deep sense of reverence. In a land which is rich in the interesting records of the past, that portion of Virginia lying between Washington and Norfolk stands out unrivaled in important events and great names. Colonial importance, Revolutionary fame, the statesmanship of the early Republic, the great struggle for the supremacy of the Union—these epoch-making stories can not be told without relating the history of this locality and recounting the eminence of its illustrious sons. Very much of this narrative centers around the venerable town of Williamsburg and the old college of William and Mary.

Prescient? These two paragraphs:

It is impossible to lay too much emphasis upon the necessity of making all our political action of the Federal Government harmonize with the principle of national unity. For many years now this course has been greatly impeded from the fact that those who substantially think alike have so oftentimes been unable to act alike. Our country ought to be done with all sectional divisions and all actions based upon geographical lines. Washington warned us against that danger in his Farewell Address. Experience has time and again demonstrated the soundness of his advice and the breadth of his wisdom. It would be difficult to suggest anything more likely to enhance the progress of our country than united political action in all parts of the Nation in accord with the advice of Washington for the support and maintenance of those principles of sound economics and stable constitutional government in which they so substantially agree. All sections have the same community of interests, both in theory and in fact, and they ought to have a community in political action. We can not deny that we are all Americans. To attempt to proceed upon any other theory can only end in disaster. No policy can ever be a success which does not contemplate this as one country.

The principle that those who think alike ought to be able to act alike wherever they happen to live should be supplemented by another rule for the continuation of the contentment and tranquillity of our Republic. The general acceptance of our institutions proceeds on the theory that they have been adopted by the action of a majority. It is obvious that if those who hold to the same ideals of government fail to agree the chances very strongly favor a rule by a minority. But there is another element of recent development. Direct primaries and direct elections bring to bear upon the political fortunes of public officials the greatly disproportionate influence of organized minorities. Artificial propaganda, paid agitators, selfish interests, all impinge upon members of legislative bodies to force them to represent special elements rather than the great body of their constituency. When they are successful minority rule is established, and the result is an extravagance on the part of the Government which is ruinous to the people and a multiplicity of regulations and restrictions for the conduct of all kinds of necessary business, which becomes little less than oppressive. Not only is this one country, but we must keep all its different parts in harmony by refusing to adopt legislation which is not for the general welfare.

Emphasis mine - Coolidge saw this from 95 years away. We are one Nation.  Obama divided us. He and his cronies wanted to Balkanize us. Divide us into groups and turn us against each other so that we could not rise up and stop what he and the deep state were doing. They came damn close to suceeding.

Time to take our Nation back.  Get some adults in the room again. 2024? Vote for Silent Cal.

Specifically, the Hawley / Braun Bill (COVID-19 Origin Act) which passed unanimously in the Senate last evening.
Short and sweet too - only five pages.

A BILL
To require the Director of National Intelligence to declassify information relating to the origin of COVID–19, and for other purposes.

And the meat of 'er:

It is the sense of Congress that—

(1) identifying the origin of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19) is critical for preventing a similar pandemic from occurring in the future;
(2) there is reason to believe the COVID–19 pandemic may have originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology; and
(3) the Director of National Intelligence should declassify and make available to the public as much information as possible about the origin of COVID– 19 so the United States and like-minded countries can:

(A) identify the origin of COVID–19 as ex19 peditiously as possible, and
(B) use that information to take all appro21 priate measures to prevent a similar pandemic from occurring again.

Now, let us see what they actually do with it...
Is our Nation to much in "bed" with China that we will try to sweep this under the rug?

And of course, A. F. Branco is there with his Pen and his Brain:

An interesting look at CINO (Conservative-In-Name-Only) Pollster Frank Luntz. Salon:

Former employees of famed GOP pollster Frank Luntz say his work is a "scam"
Republican pollster and Kevin McCarthy friend-slash-roommate Frank Luntz isn't afraid of boasting about his personal achievements. "Dr. Frank I. Luntz is one of the most honored communication professionals in America today," reads a biography on his website. But some of his former employees tell a remarkably different story.

Chris Ingram, a former senior vice president at the Luntz Research Company who worked at the company from 1997 through the early 2000s, told Salon that Luntz's claim to deliver objective data is a "total shtick and a scam."

Not surprised. A bit more:

Ingram said that Luntz does not work as an "impartial" or honest survey researcher but is better described as a pay-for-play pawn in Washington. In 1997, the American Association for Public Opinion Research largely agreed with Ingram's current analysis, finding after a 14-month investigation that Luntz had "violated the Association's Code of Professional Ethics and Practices." 

Much more at the site - tip of the 'ole chapeaux to Don Surber for the link.
Don links to a couple other stories too - the guy is a sleaze.

If he is supposed to be on OUR side, you can only imagine what the other mokes must be like...
