ADAM SCHIFF CRYING CROCODILE TEARS IN FUNDRAISING LETTER

Adam Schiff has proven he is willing to ignore or distort the truth time and time again. He is a liar and a leaker in addition to being House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s devoted sock puppet…

schiff-hdr

Stephen —

When you stand up for decency, for truth, and for our democracy – a fire-hose of right-wing disinformation seems to follow.

[OCS: Schiff’s behavior as the Chair of the House Select Committee on Intelligence is not only abysmal, it would be criminal if not hidden behind the veil of congressional immunity. The truth is that Adam Schiff is a liar, leaker, and a participant in the destruction of our republic.]

Tucker Carlson went after my character.

Sean Hannity referred to me as “the congenital liar.”

Rudy Giuliani called me a liar – pot calling the kettle black.

And frankly some really disturbing QAnon attacks.

I don’t go searching for these. I don’t ask for these. That would be a waste of energy that they don’t deserve. But I want to speak up about it – and share with you their ridiculousness.

[OCS: Schiff is outraged because the opposition tells the truth about his past and current behavior. He is reaping what he has sown and has nobody to blame for his treasonous attack on our nation but himself.]

But why such vile and untruthful attacks? Because they think stooping to the level of their leader is how they win. And they’ve decided that’s their best shot at getting Donald Trump back in power.

[OCS: Schiff is like the racist that views everything through the prism of race. Schiff is so preoccupied with Donald Trump that he ignored actual “quid pro quo” criminality by the Biden crime family while falsely accusing President Trump of nefarious impeachable activities. As the House impeachment manager, Schiff allowed lies to be put forth as truth in the impeachment documentation.]

I refuse to let that happen. Will you pitch in $10 to my campaign right now? We can’t let these lies fester. And we must do everything possible to fight back against the GOP disinformation machine.

The most disheartening part? It’s not just a right-wing media push. These words are being puppeted by GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy. A man who mirrors the anti-science, anti-truth mentality of the former president. For our democracy's sake and our health, he must never become Speaker.

[OCS: The only anti-science, anti-truth mentality on display is that of Adam Schiff and his cadre of co-conspirators in the Democrat Party.

Considering the damage, Nancy Pelosi has done to our nation as the Speaker of the House and what she proposes to do with currently pending legislation demands that someone else takes over the House majority and speakership to save our nation.]

Although, that’s becoming a real possibility that’s all too apparent with our slim House majority. Republicans came within a few seats of taking back the House in 2020, and now the odds are stacked in their favor.

[OCS: Schiff must be so grateful that the Democrats were able to manipulate the election in their favor to give him his chairmanship. The odds are now stacked in GOP's favor due to the damage wrought by the Democrats during the Obama/Biden Administration and now being wrought by the Biden Administration. The Democrat’s only defense is to blame the pandemic – provided they can keep the fear going until 2022 and then on to 2024.]

House Republicans have outraised us by more than $8 million since Democrats won Georgia earlier this year. Frankly, the fundraising numbers aren’t even close.

[OCS: Look closely, the Democrats have become the party of the wealthy and no longer represent the average American worker. As for Blacks and other people of color, the Democrats have always exploited them for political purposes while the democrat-governed inner cities remain cesspools of illiteracy, poverty, disease, decay, and crime.]

To keep Kevin McCarthy out of the Speaker's office, and fight back against their right-wing machine, I need you on my side.

Can you pitch in any amount right now before Saturday’s fundraising deadline? I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t so important.

[OCS: Name one honorable thing Schiff has done to earn the respect and trust of ordinary Americans? Why should Schiff be in Congress rather than in prison?]

Thank you, as always, for being by my side in this fight for our democracy and for decency.

— Adam

[OCS: Fundraising links and buttons removed.]

If Adam was truthful…

Schiff does not merit reelection in California’s 28th District in 2022.

Ask Chairman Schiff why Representative Eric Swalwell is still on the House Select Committee on Intelligence under Adam Schiff’s leadership?

Exclusive — Classified Report Biden Could Release Provides Intricate Detail on Eric Swalwell Relationship with ‘Fang Fang’

The U.S. Intelligence Community currently has in its possession a classified report that includes intricate and intimate details of the nature of the relationship between Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and a Chinese spy known as “Fang Fang,” Breitbart News has confirmed.

The report, which intelligence and national security sources familiar with its contents who spoke on condition of anonymity told Breitbart News, contains details of the nature of Swalwell’s relationship with Fang Fang including certain sexual acts they allegedly engaged in together. Sources familiar with it, however, would not provide any more detail on the nature of those acts or other details in the report—which is currently classified.

The relationship was first revealed in news reports in December 2020 when Axios uncovered that Fang Fang had targeted up-and-coming Bay Area, California, politicians:

Fang took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, according to a Bay Area political operative and a current U.S. intelligence official. Swalwell’s office was directly aware of these activities on its behalf, the political operative said. That same political operative, who witnessed Fang fundraising on Swalwell’s behalf, found no evidence of illegal contributions.

While Fang did not make any direct contributions to Swalwell’s campaigns, per Federal Election Commission records, the Axios story noted she did place an intern in Swalwell’s office and “interacted with Swalwell at multiple events over the course of several years.” <Source>

Demand Adam Schiff releases information on the so-called “whistleblower” alleged to be Eric Ciaramella, a Ukraine expert with known associations to Joe Biden…

To date, the name and testimony of the so-called “whistleblower” that instigated Trump’s impeachment over a Ukraine phone call remain classified by Schiff’s orders. As does the information that appears to demonstrate collusion between Schiff, his staff, the whistleblower, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community who altered and backdated documents, and others who were desperately trying to protect candidate Joe Biden from criminal allegations.

Bottom line…

Few in the House of Representatives have done more damage to our nation than Adam Schiff.

We are so screwed.

THE JEWISH ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE (ADL) GOES FULL OBAMA

As we have learned from the Obama Administration, it is both un-American and a stunningly bad idea to politicize and weaponize the federal government's intelligence, law enforcement, and tax agencies.

(1)  Did we not learn anything from the Lois Learner affair where Lois Learner took inappropriate and illegal actions to deny conservative groups their rightful tax-exempt status to cripple their ability to fundraise before a presidential election?

Lois Gail Lerner (born October 12, 1950) is an American attorney and former United States federal civil service employee. Lerner became director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2005, and subsequently became the central figure in the 2013 IRS targeting controversy in the targeting of politically-aligned groups, either denying them tax-exempt status outright or delaying that status until they could no longer take effective part in the 2012 election.

On May 10, 2013, in advance of a public release of the audit findings, Lerner answered a planted question at a meeting of the American Bar Association (ABA) by stating that the IRS was "apologetic" for what she termed "absolutely inappropriate" actions. Lerner said that the extra scrutiny had not been centrally planned and had been done by low-level "front-line people" in the Cincinnati office. The Washington Post subsequently reported that documents showed that "IRS officials at the agency's Washington headquarters sent queries to conservative groups asking about their donors and other aspects of their operations, while officials in the El Monte and Laguna Niguel offices in California sent similar questionnaires to tea-party-affiliated groups." Lerner's superior, then-acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, later testified to Congress that he had discussed with Lerner how she was to make the revelation and apology using a planted question at the ABA meeting, rather than at her appearance two days earlier before the House Ways and Means Committee.

On May 10, 2013, in a conference call with reporters, Lerner apologized that Tea Party groups and other groups had been targeted for audits of their applications for tax-exemption. Lerner told those on the conference call that, in an attempt to manage the large number of tax-exemption applications between 2010 and 2012, the agency had identified some applicants using "shortcuts" such as targeting those applications containing terms like "Tea Party" or "patriots" in their titles. Lerner said, however, that such actions were not driven by any political agenda, but added, "We made some mistakes. Some people didn't use good judgment....

Learner was never prosecuted for her illegal activities and was allowed to retire with all of her perks and privileges intact.

(2)  Did we not learn anything about using the awesome and overwhelming power of the federal government? Including the almost unlimited time, money, and staffing that can be used to attack a U.S. citizen, even a highly decorated soldier like Lt. General Michael Flynn, for political purposes?

Or destroying a man’s life with domestic spying and leaked revelations based on illegal domestic spying? Just ask Carter Page about FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith’s deliberate falsification of his CIA status, which was used to pursue charges (unproven) of being a Russian agent as a precursor to spying on the Trump campaign and a President; while in office? Or the government’s threat against family members to coerce a confession, a plea bargain, or cooperation?

(3)  Unless some future Special Counsel like John Durham brings indictments, these egregious government acts, and thousands of others, past, present, and future will go unpunished.

So, why is the Anti-Defamation League repeating these dastardly un-American acts by urging the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to take action against a number of so-called “extremist and hate groups” to investigate, deny, or revoke their non-profit status?

Long ago, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was the primary organization that could be relied on to call out and combat anti-Semitism without fear or favor. Its support for Jewish causes and Israel was unwavering even if its internal politics leaned left.

Enter Jonathan Greenblatt as the ADL’s CEO and National Director. Before employment at ADL, Greenblatt served in the White House as Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation. Yes, President Obama, who was trained in Marxism and Communism by prominent communists, palled around with unrepentant domestic terrorists like William Ayers and his terrorist wife Bernardine Dohrn and worshiped for over 20-years with his “spiritual mentor,” Reverend Jerimiah Wright, a virulent anti-Semite, anti-white, anti-America demagogue.

Therefore I am not surprised that a compromised ADL lends its name to assist in fulfilling the agenda of the progressive communist democrats in attacking their political enemies.

Extremist and Hate Groups May be Abusing Non-Profit Status

ADL sent a letter to the IRS, highlighting recent research about the ways in which extremist and hateful groups operating as “charitable” non-profits may be abusing their tax-exempt status to further their violent or hateful objectives, and asked the IRS to investigate those organizations. 

A number of extremist and hate groups are currently registered as tax-exempt organizations with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), allowing them significant financial benefits. To explore how extremist groups are using tax-exempt status, we identified and then reviewed filings of a sample of over 30 groups that are listed as tax-exempt organizations, including groups associated with the Capitol insurrection.

There are many reasons extremist groups that may seek 501(c)(3) or (c)(4) tax-exempt status with the IRS. This status allows groups to raise money or financing while avoiding state and federal income and unemployment taxes. In some cases, 501(c)(3) or (c)(4) organizations can sidestep property taxes, state income taxes, sales taxes, and employment taxes as well.

Ways in Which Hate Groups May be Abusing Tax- Exempt Status

A. Misrepresentations

B. Potential enrichment of leaders or family members

C. Potential self-dealing

D. Potential misreporting

[OCS: How were the groups listed in the report and the letter to the IRS chosen? And why do they appear to be mostly  conservative or right-wing groups with no mention of more deadly, destructive, and virulently anti-Semitic  progressive left-wing groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Nation of Islam, or CAIR (Council on American–Islamic Relations)?]


For more information, in full and in context…

ADL Press Release

ADL Letter to the IRS

Full Report 

A sample from the report…

"For example, in the days leading  up to the January 6th insurrection, Oath Keepers’ founder Stewart Rhodes appeared on a podcast to solicit  charitable donations to the Oath Keepers Educational Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) whose stated purpose on filings is to “give veterans an opportunity for continued involvement in community service.” Of course, and as detailed further below, this entity is not in the business of community service for veterans. To  the contrary, the Oath Keepers is a far-right anti-government extremist group, known for being heavily armed and actively recruiting from current and former military and law enforcement personnel, that sees itself as a  check against a tyrannical U.S. government."

Bottom line…

I must have missed the ADL letter urging the IRS to investigate the tens of millions of dollars that washed through the anti-Semitic communist front group Black Lives Matter that engaged in documented deadly and destructive behavior in American cities.

In my mind, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has lost all legitimacy to speak for the Jewish community on the subject of anti-Semitism.

The ADL has now become propagandists for the progressive communist democrats who are rapidly destroying America, our Constitution, and the traditional non-political agencies and institutions of government. They have been infiltrated by radical Obamacons. It is only a matter of time until the ADL joins the fight against Islamophobia and provides aid and comfort to those who attack Jews worldwide.

We are so screwed.

WE ARE NOT FREE: THEY ARE NOW DICTATING WHAT COMPUTERS YOU CAN BUY

BS-CEC

The California fascists want to run your life, and they are Californicating the country…

Why should I restrict my computer selection because of corrupt utilities that protect their earnings and cushy executive salaries by refusing to spend ratepayers' money to repair, replace, or build out their inadequate infrastructure? Some of which failed and were responsible for deaths and wildfires.

Likewise, the corrupt public utilities commissions who are in bed with the utilities they regulate (regulatory capture) or the radical progressive communist democrats that demand you replace reliable, low-cost power with unreliable, subsidized high-cost power to satisfy communist eco-terrorists?

These restrictions originated in California, the bastion of progressive communist democrat politics that are often championed by the wealthy tech tyrants of Silicon Valley.

July 1, 2021, was a red-letter day commemorating state fascism…

Effective on July 1, 2021, was the California Energy Commission’s Tier 2 mandatory energy efficiency standard for PCs – including desktops, AIOs, and mobile gaming systems. And of course, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers with a large stake in doing business with the State of California cheerfully screw their customers.

US States California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington have banned the sale of high-end gaming PCs under a new energy bill.

The California Energy Bill was written in 2017, and recently went into effect. This led to several US States outside of California joining in; effectively banning high-end pre-built gaming PCs.

The state had recently published a paper looking into the power efficiency of computer gaming. They claim in their findings is that computer gaming in California consumed 4.1 terawatt hours in 2016, costing roughly $700 million USD in energy bills. They list consoles with taking a bulk of the emissions at 66%, and desktop computers at 31%. In spite of this, consoles are seemingly exempt from the bill.

As an answer to this, Dell has pulled the sale of seven of its eight Alienware gaming desktops from those states. Only the Alienware Aurora R12 Gaming Desktop is widely available; packing a i5 11400F, a GTX 1650 Super, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The other R12s which are restricted on shipping feature one major component different; such as a 1TB hard-drive or different graphics cards.

The disclaimer reads “This product cannot be shipped to the states of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont or Washington due to power consumption regulations adopted by those states. Any orders placed that are bound for those states will be canceled.” Those disclaimers are not seemingly on Amazon, but will likely be mentioned closer to checkout. <Source>

Bottom line…

With all of California’s real problems, mostly created by the corrupt progressive communist democrat politicians who rule the state with an iron fist, it can't get much worse -- unless they impose a computer tax to provide computers to the homeless littering California's streets with drug paraphernalia and feces. 

It is time to push back. Demand these corrupt bastards do their effin jobs and send them to jail when they cut sweetheart deals with the special interests.

For those gamers who want high-end graphics cards, I suggest you create an official-looking affidavit affirming you are a graphic arts research and this type of high-end computer is necessary for your research.

We are so screwed when those who govern California overlook the energy impact of 100,000 illegal aliens and start regulating graphics cards.

A NOTE ON SIMONE BILES

SIMONE

The mainstream media and blogosphere are full of ill-informed commentary about the abrupt withdrawal of Simone Biles from the team Olympic gymnastics competition. Especially annoying is the commentary on her mental health, suggestions she should have pushed herself, and unfair comparisons with other athletes who would be mocked if they left the field of play.

There is no doubt that Simone Biles is currently the greatest and most accomplished gymnast of all time.

She competes in a sport where one mistake is life-threatening or life-altering, with the consequences ranging from death, quadriplegia, or other grievous injuries.

So if Simone Biles feels that something does not feel right, physically or mentally, it is nobody’s business except her own. She owes nobody anything, not even her teammates and handlers.

Enough said. STFU!

ADL JOINS PAYPAL TO SUPRESS CONSERVATIVE SPEECH?

Long ago, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was the primary organization that could be relied on to call out and combat anti-Semitism without fear or favor. Its support for Jewish causes and Israel was unwavering even if its internal politics leaned left.

Enter Jonathan Greenblatt as the ADL’s CEO and National Director. Before employment at ADL, Greenblatt served in the White House as Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation.

Therefore I am not surprised that a compromised ADL lends its name to assist in fulfilling the agenda of the progressive communist democrats in attacking their enemies.  In this instance, partnering with PayPal to defund enemies of the Obama/Biden regime by fighting against faux “extremism, hate, and bigotry.”

PayPal Partners with ADL to Fight Extremism and Protect Marginalized Communities

PayPal Holdings, in partnership with ADL (the Anti-Defamation League), today announced a new partnership initiative to fight extremism and hate through the financial industry and across at-risk communities. This is the latest effort by PayPal in combating racism, hate and extremism across its platforms and the industry.

Through this collaboration, PayPal and ADL have launched a research effort to address the urgent need to understand how extremist and hate movements throughout the U.S. are attempting to leverage financial platforms to fund criminal activity. The intelligence gathered through this research initiative will be shared broadly across the financial industry and with policymakers and law enforcement.

[OCS: Understanding the code words – research is little more than domestic spying on the financial affairs and activities of law-abiding Americans. In many cases, using a private company to gather “intelligence” which the government is prohibited by law from performing. One of the key indicators of a fascistic government.]

"All of us, including in the private sector, have a critical role to play in fighting the spread of extremism and hate. With this new initiative, we're setting a new standard for companies to bring their expertise to critical social issues," said Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO, ADL. "We have a unique opportunity to further understand how hate spreads and develop key insights that will inform the efforts of the financial industry, law enforcement, and our communities in mitigating extremist threats."

[OCS: I find it disingenuous that the Obama/Biden Administration quickly labels conservatives and right-leaning groups as perceived extremist threats while totally ignoring actual extremist threats from the left like communist organizations Antifa and Black Lives Matter.] 

Core to the PayPal and ADL initiative is the establishment and expansion of a coalition with other civil rights partner organizations, such as the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), to protect marginalized communities against extremism. PayPal and ADL will work closely with these organizations to share trends in extremism and hate with marginalized and vulnerable communities with the goal of helping to empower and safeguard those communities which are frequently targets of hate groups and extremist acts.

[OCS: LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) is a socialist organization supporting un-American values such as open borders, amnesty, universal healthcare for all (including illegal aliens) and shares much of the radical progressive communist democrat agenda. They do not support conservative values and label criticisms against their agenda as “hate speech.” Many of the other self-described “civil rights organizations” are radical groups having little to do with civil rights.

If one were to be intellectually honest, illegal aliens have no constitutional rights and, in many cases, are excused from criminal activities that would send an American citizen to jail.]

<Source>

You should note that PayPal has a history of illegally converting the assets of its users to its own benefit with little or no explanation or resolution. Not to mention banning payment processing services to legal entities engaged in legal activities such as conservative websites, those who sell merchandise with political messaging, and legal weapons sales by licensed dealers, etc.

Most of the categories are self-explanatory and justified, while others are vague and ill-defined to allow PayPal to disrupt businesses based on “political” complaints.

Prohibited Activities

You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:

  1. violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.
  2. relate to transactions involving (a) narcotics, steroids, certain controlled substances or other products that present a risk to consumer safety, (b) drug paraphernalia, (c) cigarettes, (d) items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity, (e) stolen goods including digital and virtual goods, (f) the promotion of hate, violence, racial or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory or the financial exploitation of a crime, (g) items that are considered obscene, (h) items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction, (i) certain sexually oriented materials or services, (j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (k) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law.
  3. relate to transactions that (a) show the personal information of third parties in violation of applicable law, (b) support pyramid or Ponzi schemes, matrix programs, other "get rich quick" schemes or certain multi-level marketing programs, (c) are associated with purchases of annuities or lottery contracts, lay-away systems, off-shore banking or transactions to finance or refinance debts funded by a credit card, (d) are for the sale of certain items before the seller has control or possession of the item, (e) are by payment processors to collect payments on behalf of merchants, (f) are associated with the sale of traveler's checks or money orders, (g) involve currency exchanges or check cashing businesses, (h) involve certain credit repair, debt settlement services, credit transactions or insurance activities, or (i) involve offering or receiving payments for the purpose of bribery or corruption.
  4. involve the sales of products or services identified by government agencies to have a high likelihood of being fraudulent.

Free speech for me, but not for thee…

A classic example of the ADL’s political agenda can be easily seen. “The ADL has previously labeled prominent conservative commentators as bigots, referring to former MSNBC contributor Patrick Buchanan as an “unrepentant bigot” and accusing Fox News host Tucker Carlson in April of espousing “dangerous race-baiting, extreme rhetoric” and “classic white supremacist tropes.” 

PayPal previously suspended service for organizations that funded travel expenses for those traveling to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 following the Capitol riots. The payment processor also banned conservative site Jihad Watch in August 2017 following violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. <Source>

Bottom line…

I no longer recognize nor support the ADL.

For those freedom-loving Americans who do not want to accede to PayPal’s tyranny, might I suggest a look at STRIPE,  a freedom-loving financial payment processor that provides software and application programming interfaces for e-commerce websites and mobile applications?

One needs to observe the relationship between the Obama/Biden Administration and Israel to know the ADL is in bed with the progressive communist democrats.  It was Obama that openly insulted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and sent a cadre of Obamacons to help remove him from office.

We are so screwed when our civil rights institutions no longer fight for their constituency but for the progressive communist democrats.

UN-AMERICAN ACLU DEMONSTRATES RACIST BENT

The short answer to the “Do Black Americans Have the Right to Bear Arms” question posed by the ACLU is intuitively obvious…

ALL LAW-ABIDING AMERICANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS UNLESS THEY ARE MENTALLY DEFICIENT, ADDICTS, FELONS, OR TERRORISTS!

ACLU-1

With 233 mass shootings so far this year, the issue of gun violence in the U.S. is all too familiar. Tragic events like the Pulse nightclub and Parkland shootings go from being media spectacles to quotidian events at an alarming rate in a country that often heralds the Second Amendment above meaningful safety for all its citizens. The vigilantism of widespread gun ownership puts Black Americans in an especially vulnerable position given the brutality and human cost of discriminatory policing.

[OCS: Self-protection cannot be redefined as vigilantism by those seeking to craft an anti-gun narrative for political purposes.

The God-given, inalienable right to self-defense was implicit in the Second Amendment, which was crafted specifically as a redress against egregious government tyranny. There was no consideration of race at the time.

It is intellectually dishonest to cite the “brutality and human cost of discriminatory policing” when the vast majority of Blacks killed in America were killed not by police, but by other Blacks -- specifically criminal gang members and drug dealers in the inner cities governed by progressive communist democrats.]

The gun violence epidemic continues to spark debate about the Second Amendment and who has a right to bear arms.

[OCS: There is no debate! Every American citizen has a constitutionally guaranteed right to own and bear arms. The only exceptions are those found mentally deficient, drug addicts, and felons. Not one word about racial characteristics.]

Moreover, there is no “violence epidemic.” Violence is not transmitted from one person to another, and the carry and use of a weapon is a conscious individual decision.]

But often absent in these debates is the intrinsic anti-Blackness of the unequal enforcement of gun laws, and the relationship between appeals to gun rights and the justification of militia violence.

[OCS: If there is a debate over the unequal enforcement of gun laws, it can be laid mostly at the feet of progressive communist democrat prosecutors who are lazy and will plea bargain away gun charges in return for an easy guilty plea to increase their prosecution statistics or those with an ideological agenda that favors perpetrators over victims as redress for historical wrongs.

There is no relationship between the appeal to gun rights and the justification of militia violence. That is a straw man argument with no validity. As for militia violence, I wonder if the ACLU considers Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam when they think about armed militias, or for that matter, The New Black Panthers? What about Antifa? The fact that militias are armed, be it with rocks, bottles, bear spray, or guns, has absolutely nothing to do with an appeal to gun rights for law-abiding citizens.]

Throughout the history of this country, the rhetoric of gun rights has been selectively manipulated and utilized to inflame white racial anxiety, and to frame Blackness as an inherent threat.

[OCS: The rhetoric of gun rights centers mainly around the attempts of the progressive communist democrats to disarm law-abiding citizens while rendering them more vulnerable to the criminals and crazies they fail to prosecute and incarcerate – the same dangerous individuals they continue to release into our communities. The same individuals do not respect laws – any laws – and especially laws on purchasing and using weapons.]

In this week’s At Liberty podcast episode, you’ll hear from historian Carol Anderson, author of The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America, and Charles Howard Candler, Professor of African American Studies at Emory University, who interrogates the elegiac worship of the Second Amendment and how racism determined its very inclusion in the Bill of Rights.

[OCS: This is the type of bald-faced assertion that is advanced by a true racist, an individual that sees everything through the prism of race – and I should add, self-promotion and career advancement.]

<Source>

I am not surprised by the ACLU claiming a relationship between race and the Second Amendment, given their founding and goal of disarming all law-abiding Americans.

aclu

And yes, even those who appear to be members of an armed Black militia have that right until they commit an offense.

bp-p

Even the notoriously corrupt Southern Poverty Law Center lists the New Black Panther Party as an “SPLC Hate Group, noting, “The New Black Panther Party is a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews, and law enforcement officers.” <Source>

Bottom line…

A conclusion that I find inescapable is that these armed Black groups are mostly communist front groups that serve as the shock troops of the progressive communist democrats as they seek to use identity politics to gain or maintain political power. I wonder if they study history where they will find that insurgents such as themselves are often the first people eliminated when a communist regime takes power – lest they become a threat to the regime when it eventually turns its back on the people in favor of the dictators, the elites and the oligarchs. Useful idiots all.

We are so screwed.

BETTING YOUR FUTURE: SCIENCE OR SPECULATIVE FICTION?

scifi

"You're travelling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead - your next stop, the Twilight Zone!"

Imagine, if you will, an evil plot hatched by the Malthusian de-growthers in which a vaccine developed in response to a manufactured pandemic results in a mass die-off of older individuals after a ten-year incubation period. Children around 12 years who did not receive the vaccine would be approximately 22 years old, well indoctrinated by their Marxist educators, and physically fit to labor on behalf of the state.

Would the progressive communist democrats embrace this evil?

Communism is responsible for the most deaths outside of the World War II.

1.  Communist China -- Mao Zedong - 50-75 million

2.  Communist Russia -- Joseph Stalin - 40 million

Bottom line…

Vaccination – the choice is yours to make!

We are so screwed.

HIDDEN TEACHERS' UNION BOMBSHELL IN THE PROPOSED BUDGET

CHILDREN

While the progressive communist democrats scream about equity and the tragedy of the school-to-prison pipeline, they are reinforcing systemic racism and creating prisons of the mind.

Like Hamas, the teachers' unions hide behind civilians; in this case, the classroom teacher who is often too afraid of union reprisals and peer pressure to call out the obvious evil in our schools.

Teachers' unions no longer represent their constituency. Still, they have transformed themselves into a communist front group that is now powering the democrat party with campaign contributions, voter support, and partisan election workers.

There is no doubt that charter schools represent one way, perhaps the best way, for minorities in the inner cities to escape decrepit schools with incompetent teachers.

Funding charter schools forces public schools to compete for students. Becoming better or forced to close due to lack of student enrollment.

If you need an example of systemic racism, look no further than union-controlled education, in reality, political indoctrination.

And the progressive communist democrats are to blame...

How can you explain why the Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee voted to cut $40 million from the federal Charter Schools Program while approving a 40% increase in federal education funding to $102.8 billion.

Look at Section 314 buried in H.R.4502 - Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2022...

“None of the funds made available by this Act or any other Act may be awarded to a charter school that contracts with a for-profit entity to operate, oversee or manage the activities of the school.”

This is insane. Schools that use for-profit vendors to supply food services, janitorial services, and even school supplies could be defunded under this language.

Bottom line…

There is a reason why the unions oppose testing teachers for teaching competency and subject matter knowledge and continually lower acceptable test scores to hide their record of continuing failure.

The teachers' unions do not own your children, and school funding should follow the student, not automatically sent to the local school system.

Do not accept another decade of functional illiterates who cannot compete, not on a global scale, but with individuals in their own communities.

Without the teachers' unions, it is unlikely that the progressive communist democrats would continue their evil agenda, including the indoctrination of our children -- teaching them about perverted sex practices and how to hate one another.

We are so screwed.

DEMOCRATS DISCOVER COVID-19 EPSILON VARIANT "E"

COVID-E-ELECTION

As we draw closer to the 2022 election cycle and the nationwide election integrity audits complete, look for variant “E” of COVID-19 to strike.

The symptoms include…

An epidemic of government and political party lawsuits

An outbreak of government disinformation and investigations of the auditors.

Massive censorship campaigns by the mainstream media and social media platforms.

A demand for mandatory mail-in voting, drop boxes, ballot harvesting, relaxed voter identification requirements, and more centralized counting of ballots.

Continued attempts to “federalize” elections and intervene in local and state elections.

More violations of individual constitutional rights by private corporations in a public-private alliance – the actual definition of fascism.

Potential delays in elections until systems are “certified.”

Bottom line…

Sunshine being the most effective disinfectant, we must continue to expose wrongdoing by political parties and government officials.

Do not look to the mainstream media propagandists or conventional social media platforms.

Keep your eyes open and talk to your family, friends, and colleagues.

We are so screwed.

FORMER SENATOR BARBARA BOXER MUGGED IN OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA

While one should not wish harm and misfortune on another person, it makes me smile that a stupid progressive communist democrat is hoist on her own petard in a democrat-governed cesspool of crime…

BOXER

Where is the description of the assailant?

At about 1:15 p.m. on Monday, the incident took place near Oakland’s Jack London Square in the 300 block of 3rd St., Oakland police said. Oakland police have not announced any arrests or released a description of the suspect.

Oakland City Council Votes to Defund Police, Stripping More Than $17M from Department Budget

The Oakland City Council approved a budget early Thursday evening that will strip $17.4 million in funding from the Oakland Police Department and direct the money toward other programs.

“Unfortunately, it [the budget] also cuts 50 police officers who respond to Oaklanders’ 911 calls and enforce traffic safety. It also cuts much-needed future academies, which will significantly reduce police staffing and delay response to Oaklanders in their time of crisis,” Schaaf’s statement read in part. “It will force our officers to work even more overtime shifts, which are expensive and unsafe for officers and residents alike.” <Source>

Ironic that the police would offer a $2,000 reward…

This incident is currently being investigated by the police department's robbery section, police said. The department is offering up to $2,000 as a reward leading to an arrest in the case.

What would Democrat social justice look like Justice since Boxer is rich, white, and the perp does not have equal housing, transportation, medical care, etc.? …

If the perp is black – let them claim Black Lives Matter membership – give them a ticket and let them walk.

If the perp is white – let them claim Antifa membership – give them a ticket let them walk.

If the perp voted for Trump – seek the death penalty.

Bottom line…

Let the Democrats reap what they sow.
