ADAM SCHIFF: LIAR, LEAKER, ANTI-AMERICA USEFUL IDIOT

In a classic case of projection, where the progressive communist democrats attribute their actions and lies to their opposition…

schiff-hdr

Stephen,

Donald Trump demonstrated that our democracy is only as strong as the people elected to preserve it. And in the case of the GOP, that meant not very strong at all.

[OCS: A shameless lie considering that President Joseph Biden cannot manage a press conference without lapsing into incoherent babble and considering his surrender of Afghanistan to terrorists, stranding thousands of American citizens and Afghan employees behind enemy lines and vulnerable to death, torture, rape, and multination.]

He set a dangerous new precedent for Republican lawmakers. He gave them permission to lie. To embrace conspiracies. And to attempt to overturn our elections. In fact, he demanded it.

[OCS: It is the Democrat Party that is lying about almost everything they mention. They are trying to subvert our elections with H.R. 4 to make the illegal actions they used to subvert the 2020 election legal and permanent – nullifying state sovereignty and federalizing elections. Ask yourself why it is the Democrats who are spending millions fighting election audits that could prove them right about secure and honest elections?

As for conspiracy theories. unfortunately, most of them have proven to be true, and even worse than originally thought.] 

He ushered in a destructive new era of far-right, authoritarian politics where GOP members defend right-wing extremists, rely on voter suppression tactics to win elections, and put loyalty to party ahead of country, and the American people.

[OCS: One need only to observe the Democrat’s tacit approval and protection of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, both far-left, authoritarian extremist groups, to illustrate the lies and hypocrisy of Schiff and the Democrats.

As for Party loyalty over the country and the American people, one merely needs to look at the lock-step voting on legislation to see the truth.]

And we are not out of the woods.

[OCS: I absolutely agree – the Democrats cannot be easily deterred or defeated when they are willing to use violence, murder, and mayhem to press their radical progressive communist democrat agenda. I was hoping you could show me a city that anyone on the right of center has significantly destroyed in a protest.]

But neither are we powerless to do anything about this assault on our democracy. We can devote ourselves to preserving the Democratic majority, and making sure that as long as the GOP remains an autocratic cult of the former president, they never occupy a position of power again. If we can do that, we can save our democracy.

[OCS: Look around you at our country and our standing in the world. Our nation is in shambles and held hostage by a thin majority of democrat voters that is being treated as a national mandate to fundamentally transform our nation into a socialist authoritarian nation. Are you insane to want to support our decline into communism?

Supporting the progressive communist democrats will destroy our nation, not save it.]

Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, and dozens of GOP challengers are raising millions upon millions for a full-fledged Republican offensive to take back the House and Senate and make Joe Biden a one-term president. We’ve already fallen dangerously behind, and we can’t afford to let this continue if we’re going to protect our slim Democratic House and Senate majorities in 2022.

[OCS: Truth be told, Biden should be impeached as a failed, incompetent, and mentally impaired president if not court-martialed for the unnecessary surrender of Afghanistan to the Taliban with a major loss of American lives and sophisticated military weaponry that can be used to threaten our homeland.

If the GOP doesn’t take over Congress in 2022 and the Presidency in 2024, then the America we know and love may cease to exist. With Chinese overlords.]

So Stephen, will you chip in $10 or more right now? Republicans are pulling out every stop from gerrymandering to voter suppression laws to beat us in 2022 — your donation sends an important message that we won’t let that happen.

[OCS: With all of the Democrat billionaires, media moguls, and tech tyrants supporting the Democrat cause, the Democrat Party no longer represents the working man or middle class. They are the elites who believe they are so smart as to demand the authority to rule over us for our own good.]

Where is Schiff?

Why is Schiff, the Chairman of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, preoccupied with fundraising and partisan politics? At the same time, his Party has just surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban and turned the terrorist insurgency into one of the most well-equipped forces in the region, and armed with sophisticated American arms?

Is he overseeing the massive intelligence failures of the CIA and DIA, or preparing to impeach President Biden?

Is he asking about the intelligence agencies who knew the actual status of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces that left behind thousands of arms, accessories, military vehicles, including Humvees, heavily armored "Mine Resistant Ambush Protected trucks," hundreds of helicopters (including Blackhawks), dozens of heavy transport, reconnaissance, and surveillance aircraft including the A-29 Super Tucano light attack fighters?

Is he asking what intelligence led to the abrupt withdrawal from Bagram Airbase? The intelligence that led to the redirection of the 82nd Airborne units?

Is he asking about the intelligence about the wide-open border and the expansion of drug cartels, Communist Chinese spying, and cyberwarfare?

A mouthpiece for Pelosi and the establishment couldn’t wait to leak?

Representative Adam Schiff News Conference on Afghanistan

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff spoke to reporters after receiving a classified briefing on the situation in Afghanistan. Chair Schiff spoke about moving forward with investigations into why the political leadership in the country collapsed so quickly and failures in U.S. intelligence. When asked about meeting the August 31 withdrawal deadline he said it was “possible, but very unlikely” considering the number of people waiting to be evacuated from the country. He also spoke about the threats presented by ISIS-K in Kabul. <Source>

Bottom line…

Adam Schiff lied and leaked his way through the impeachment of President Donald Trump on bogus charges. Encouraged and assisted by a cadre of progressive communist democrats who attempted to legislatively overthrow the government of the United States. He has nothing to say about fellow committee member Eric Swalwell who was previously compromised by a Communist Chinese spy. He knows nothing about intelligence failures in Afghanistan. 

We are so screwed.

JOE BIDEN MUST BE IMPEACHED OR COURT-MARTIALED FOR UNILATERAL AFGHANISTAN SURRENDER DECISION

Northing moving at Bagram…

bagram

Nothing happening at Kabul International…

kabul

Six Boeing C-17A Globemaster III are in the air at this time.

The chatter…

The administration has no plans to rescue Americans outside of Kabul.

Hearing from sources that the original plan was for elements of the 82nd Airborne’s Global Response Force to conduct a mass tactical jump to seize Bagram Airfield to facilitate the evacuation but it was called off & they were sent to Kabul.

Maj. Gen. Chris Donahue, the commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, is heading to Kabul, Afghanistan, to oversee the U.S. troops who have secured the airfield at Hamid Karzai International Airport to facilitate the evacuation of people fleeing the Taliban, the Pentagon confirmed Tuesday morning.
...
Once the rapid deployment is complete, elements of the 82nd Airborne’s division headquarters and three of its infantry battalions will be on-site, in addition to two Marine infantry battalions and an Army National Guard-led combined arms battalion.

Approximately 7,000 troops will be at the airport once all of the units are in place, Kirby said Monday.

At a time of real crisis, instead of holding the Democrats accountable for this catastrophe, the progressive communist democrat propagandists in the media turn out crap like this…

vf

Sloppy withdrawal? BULLSHIT! UNILATERAL SURRENDER!

Bottom line…

Even the idea of leaving American hostages in Afghanistan is inconceivable and unconscionable. Had this been a banana republic, there would have been a military coup.

Congress must act immediately or face the consequences.

The idea that Congress is working on screwing our constitution, economy, and military with legislation at this time is intolerable.

I need to ask, is Afghanistan the largest distraction from upcoming news about Obama’s illegal activities and a stolen election? What else could it be if no Democrats are speaking out to protect American citizens? Where are those who screamed the loudest when we offered military assistance to Ukraine? Are they all being blackmailed by China?

We are so screwed.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BIDEN AND THE DEMOCRATS IS HARD TO WATCH

This is the latest Trump-authorized video in the format of a campaign ad...

How Americans can allow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York City) to subvert our election system and cripple America's economy from within while President Joe Biden (D-Senile) destroys our foreign policy was formerly imaginable.

It is time to raise hell with your local, state, and elected officials. The only other option appears to be a mass revolt.

We are so screwed.

LET US REMEMBER THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISORS WHO GAVE US JOE BIDEN

By no means is this list complete as there are many more who overtly and covertly subverted our nation’s security during the Trump Administration.

astainonamerica

A partial list of stupid, corrupt, or ignorant schmucks who helped grease the skids of America’s descent into national security chaos…

NEVER FORGET WHO IN THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT ENDORSED JOE BIDEN

A STATEMENT BY FORMER REPUBLICAN NATIONAL SECURITY OFFICIALS

The statement below was issued by over 70 former senior Republican national security officials on August 20, 2020, and 60 additional senior officials have now signed on, including many who served in the Trump Administration. 

We are former national security officials who served during the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and/or Donald Trump, or as Republican Members of Congress. We are profoundly concerned about the course of our nation under the leadership of Donald Trump.

Through his actions and his rhetoric, Trump has demonstrated that he lacks the character and competence to lead this nation and has engaged in corrupt behavior that renders him unfit to serve as President.

While we – like all Americans – had hoped that Donald Trump would govern wisely, he has disappointed millions of voters who put their faith in him and has demonstrated that he is dangerously unfit to serve another term.

In contrast, we believe Joe Biden has the character, experience, and temperament to lead this nation. We believe he will restore the dignity of the presidency, bring Americans together, reassert America’s role as a global leader, and inspire our nation to live up to its ideals.

While some of us hold policy positions that differ from those of Joe Biden and his party, the time to debate those policy differences will come later. For now, it is imperative that we stop Trump’s assault on our nation’s values and institutions and reinstate the moral foundations of our democracy.

To that end, we are firmly convinced that it is in the best interest of our nation that Vice President Joe Biden be elected as the next President of the United States, and we will vote for him.

FDA: FAST VACCINE APPROVAL -- A CONVENIENT COINCIDENCE OR SOMETHING MORE SINISTER?

scifi

It is deeply troublesome when you cannot trust your own government, especially when your semi-vegetative President stands before the American public and lies with impunity. As if knowing his false words will be magically scrubbed or explained away by his party’s partisan propagandists in the mainstream media.

But what I find most disconcerting is that when objections are raised over vaccine mandates based on their conditional approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and one of the slowest-moving agencies quickly approves the vaccine – and Bob’s your uncle – objections to mandates seem to evaporate.

A convenient coincidence, or something more political and sinister?

Don’t get me wrong, I am a proponent of modern medicine and fully vaccinated (Pfizer, 2 shots – for now) because I am in a high-risk cohort where the rewards of reducing COVID’s most serious symptoms outweigh the risk. A decision based on my particular health conditions in consultation with my trusted physicians.

But I am ambivalent over today’s approval…

FDA NEWS RELEASE

FDA Approves First COVID-19 Vaccine

Approval Signifies Key Achievement for Public Health

For Immediate Release: August 23, 2021

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine has been known as the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, and will now be marketed as Comirnaty (koe-mir’-na-tee), for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a third dose in certain immunocompromised individuals.

“The FDA’s approval of this vaccine is a milestone as we continue to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. While this and other vaccines have met the FDA’s rigorous, scientific standards for emergency use authorization, as the first FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine, the public can be very confident that this vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality the FDA requires of an approved product,” said Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock, M.D.

[OCS: Considering the year-plus contradictory and confusing display of so-called “scientific” information by Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, I am not so quick to believe “official” government pronouncements. Especially after Fauci confessed that some of his pronouncements were based on political considerations and others on SWAG (scientific wild-ass guesses).

While millions of people have already safely received COVID-19 vaccines, we recognize that for some, the FDA approval of a vaccine may now instill additional confidence to get vaccinated.

[OCS: This is the crux of the matter. Was today’s speedy vaccine approval based less on science, reliable testing, and evaluation protocols, or was it made to “instill additional confidence to get vaccinated” amid a major government push for vaccinations?]

Today’s milestone puts us one step closer to altering the course of this pandemic in the U.S.” 

[OCS: I heard much the same rhetoric when lockdowns, masks, and social distancing were being discussed by the nation’s alleged medical “experts.” Most of whom seemed to have very little current education and experience with “the science.” Instead, they seemed to function as librarians during story reading time -- explaining the big words in the “scientific literature.”

Since Dec. 11, 2020, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine has been available under EUA in individuals 16 years of age and older, and the authorization was expanded to include those 12 through 15 years of age on May 10, 2021. EUAs can be used by the FDA during public health emergencies to provide access to medical products that may be effective in preventing, diagnosing, or treating a disease, provided that the FDA determines that the known and potential benefits of a product, when used to prevent, diagnose, or treat the disease, outweigh the known and potential risks of the product.

[OCS: How can the FDA legitimately ignore drugs with long histories like Hydroxychloroquine, an analog of chloroquine that was developed in 1946 and used to treat autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, in addition to malaria? Or Ivermectin which was used to treat or prevent parasites in animals but appeared to have some beneficial effects in mitigating the respiratory effects of COVID? Was this because the drugs were cheap and not supportive of the billions of dollars channeled into vaccine research?

I do not know the answer, so this is a matter of trust. Trust has been deeply shattered by the partisan politics opposing anything associated with Donald Trump and ignoring or excusing anything from the Democrats. ]

FDA-approved vaccines undergo the agency’s standard process for reviewing the quality, safety and effectiveness of medical products. For all vaccines, the FDA evaluates data and information included in the manufacturer’s submission of a biologics license application (BLA). A BLA is a comprehensive document that is submitted to the agency providing very specific requirements. For Comirnaty, the BLA builds on the extensive data and information previously submitted that supported the EUA, such as preclinical and clinical data and information, as well as details of the manufacturing process, vaccine testing results to ensure vaccine quality, and inspections of the sites where the vaccine is made. The agency conducts its own analyses of the information in the BLA to make sure the vaccine is safe and effective and meets the FDA’s standards for approval.

Comirnaty contains messenger RNA (mRNA), a kind of genetic material. The mRNA is used by the body to make a mimic of one of the proteins in the virus that causes COVID-19. The result of a person receiving this vaccine is that their immune system will ultimately react defensively to the virus that causes COVID-19. The mRNA in Comirnaty is only present in the body for a short time and is not incorporated into - nor does it alter - an individual’s genetic material. Comirnaty has the same formulation as the EUA vaccine and is administered as a series of two doses, three weeks apart.

Our scientific and medical experts conducted an incredibly thorough and thoughtful evaluation of this vaccine. We evaluated scientific data and information included in hundreds of thousands of pages, conducted our own analyses of Comirnaty’s safety and effectiveness, and performed a detailed assessment of the manufacturing processes, including inspections of the manufacturing facilities,” said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. “We have not lost sight that the COVID-19 public health crisis continues in the U.S. and that the public is counting on safe and effective vaccines. The public and medical community can be confident that although we approved this vaccine expeditiously, it was fully in keeping with our existing high standards for vaccines in the U.S."

[OCS: Did they only evaluate peer-reviewed journal papers, attempt to replicate results, or are we seeing an instance of “regulator capture” where the regulators are too cozy with those they regulate?]

FDA Evaluation of Safety and Effectiveness Data for Approval for 16 Years of Age and Older

The first EUA, issued Dec. 11, for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for individuals 16 years of age and older was based on safety and effectiveness data from a randomized, controlled, blinded ongoing clinical trial of thousands of individuals.

To support the FDA’s approval decision today, the FDA reviewed updated data from the clinical trial which supported the EUA and included a longer duration of follow-up in a larger clinical trial population.

Specifically, in the FDA’s review for approval, the agency analyzed effectiveness data from approximately 20,000 vaccine and 20,000 placebo recipients ages 16 and older who did not have evidence of the COVID-19 virus infection within a week of receiving the second dose. The safety of Comirnaty was evaluated in approximately 22,000 people who received the vaccine and 22,000 people who received a placebo 16 years of age and older.

Based on results from the clinical trial, the vaccine was 91% effective in preventing COVID-19 disease. 

[OCS: What about the credible Israeli study that suggests the vaccine is significantly less effective over time? AND WHY NO MENTION OF THE VARIANTS WHICH SEEM TO BE MORE PREVALENT THAN THE ORIGINAL DISEASE MANEFESTATION]

More than half of the clinical trial participants were followed for safety outcomes for at least four months after the second dose. Overall, approximately 12,000 recipients have been followed for at least 6 months.

[OCS: Not exactly a long-term study for a previously unknown vaccine methodology.]

The most commonly reported side effects by those clinical trial participants who received Comirnaty were pain, redness and swelling at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, chills, and fever. The vaccine is effective in preventing COVID-19 and potentially serious outcomes including hospitalization and death.

Additionally, the FDA conducted a rigorous evaluation of the post-authorization safety surveillance data pertaining to myocarditis and pericarditis following administration of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine and has determined that the data demonstrate increased risks, particularly within the seven days following the second dose. The observed risk is higher among males under 40 years of age compared to females and older males. The observed risk is highest in males 12 through 17 years of age. Available data from short-term follow-up suggest that most individuals have had resolution of symptoms. However, some individuals required intensive care support. Information is not yet available about potential long-term health outcomes. The Comirnaty Prescribing Information includes a warning about these risks.

Ongoing Safety Monitoring

The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have monitoring systems in place to ensure that any safety concerns continue to be identified and evaluated in a timely manner.

[OCS: The CDC is another troubled agency with inconsistent and conflicting messaging.]

In addition, the FDA is requiring the company to conduct post-marketing studies to further assess the risks of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination with Comirnaty. These studies will include an evaluation of long-term outcomes among individuals who develop myocarditis following vaccination with Comirnaty.

In addition, although not FDA requirements, the company has committed to additional post-marketing safety studies, including conducting a pregnancy registry study to evaluate pregnancy and infant outcomes after receipt of Comirnaty during pregnancy.

The FDA granted this application Priority Review. The approval was granted to BioNTech Manufacturing GmbH.

What they are not saying…

With Pfizer Likely to Get FDA Approval Monday It’s Worth Remembering Pfizer and Moderna Lost The Clinical Trial Control Group Testing Vaccine Efficacy and Safety 

The Moderna and Pfizer vaccine tests were conducted, as customary, with a control group; a group within the trial who were given a placebo and not the test vaccine.  However, during the trial -and after the untested vaccines were given emergency use authorization- the vaccine companies conducting the trial decided to break protocol and notify the control group they were not vaccinated.  Almost all the control group were then given the vaccine.

Purposefully dissolving the placebo group violates the scientific purpose to test whether the vaccine has any efficacy; any actual benefit and/or safety issues.  Without a control group there is nothing to compare the vaccinated group against.  According to NPR, the doctors lost the control group in the Johnson County Clinicial Trial (Lexena, Kansas) on purpose.

Just so we are clear, the final FDA authorization and approval for the vaccines are based on the outcome of these trials.  As noted in the example above, the control group was intentionally lost under the auspices of  “the right thing to do”, so there is no way for the efficacy, effectiveness or safety of the vaccine itself to be measured.

FDA Ignores New UK Study Showing Pfizer Vaccine Destroys T Cells, Weakens the Immune System

A study from the Francis Crick Institute in the United Kingdom has found that the Pfizer-BioNTech Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine destroys T cells and weakens the immune system. But pharmaceutical corporations are trying to suggest that the only way to prevent this from happening is for people to get third or booster doses of their vaccines.

FDA approves Pfizer mRNA shots, without fixed dose regimen

The vaccinated are worried and scientists don't have answers

Bottom line…

Was this a decision made on the science or the politics? Or was science used to justify the politics?

Even more troubling, can you trust the literature when the media moguls and tech tyrants actively suppress information? Where the mere mention of Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin – or simply asking relevant questions can get your post censored, or even worse, your account banned.

As I said, it is deeply troublesome when you cannot trust your own government.

My recommendation: you do you – in consultation with your doctor who knows you and your conditions.

Best of luck as we find that we are so screwed.

MUST BE A DEMOCRAT: GUN, DRUGS, UNOPENED BALLOTS?

Torrance police find 300 unopened recall ballots, with gun and drugs, in sleeping man's car

More than 300 blank vote-by-mail ballots for the recall election were found - along with a gun and drugs - in a car parked at a Torrance convenience store.

TORRANCE, Calif. (KABC) -- Authorities are investigating why 300 unopened vote-by-mail ballots for the upcoming recall election were found - along with a gun and drugs - in a car parked at a Torrance convenience store.

The discovery was made Aug. 16 when Torrance police were called around 10:45 p.m. about a man sleeping in his car at a 7-Eleven parking lot.

"Inside the vehicle, the officers found a loaded handgun, some narcotics, and then they found a bunch of mail and what turned out to be over 300 election ballots in the backseat of the vehicle," said Sgt. Mark Ponegalek with the Torrance Police Department.

The man was taken into custody, but has since been released on his own recognizance. Police still don't know how he obtained the ballots and what his intent was.

[OCS: Must be a Democrat – released after having a gun and drugs in his car?]

"The election ballots, they were un-tampered with, unopened, a little over 300 of them found, primarily from addresses in Lawndale," Ponegalek said. "There were some from Compton. We're still trying to figure out where all these belonged to at this time so we're working with the Los Angeles (county) election office as well as the U.S. Postal Inspector."

The Los Angeles County Registrar's office tells Eyewitness News that these ballots for the Sept. 14 recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom had been sent out but were not filled out and returned by voters.

They said there is no indication the ballots were taken in an attempt to influence the results of the recall vote.

"There's nothing to indicate this was focused on the election," the county registrar's office said. <Source>

WHAT HAPPENED TO BRYAN SUITS? GONE FROM KFI640.

Bsi-downloadKFI screws the pooch, Bryan Suits departs KFI640 for podcast land…

For whatever reason, the executives at iHeartMedia’s KFI (640 AM) decided that popular radio host Bryan Suits’ utility as a radio host did not extend beyond his ability to host a military-themed show, Dark Secret Place, reminiscent of the type of content produced and hosted on KFI by Captain Dale Dye, a decorated Marine veteran of the Vietnam War, was a popular feature and among the most downloaded podcasts.

Suits, a veteran of three military conflicts, Kuwait, Bosnia, and Iraq, is an acerbic commentator on military matters, and as Suits’ puts it, “the world melting down.”

In addition to hosting The Dark Secret Place, Suits hosted “Super Hyper Local Sunday,” a show specific to happenings in Southern California (generally Santa Barbara to San Diego).

Bryan’s signoff…

“Howdy all. I have decided that I own my content, and it is now exclusively at TheDarkSecretPlace.com. My prior employer decided that I had no other value as a radio host, and we agreed to separate our futures. That is all.”

The KFI kiss-off…

A KFI spokesperson noted, “Bryan has unique insights on war, tactics, and geopolitics, and I’m sure this will make great content for an unfiltered format like podcasting. We thank Bryan for his many years here at KFI and wish him the very best with his new venture.”

The backstory...

According to Bryan, although the podcast of the DarkSecretPlace was consistently among the top downloads, the company was not promoting it as heavily as other underperforming podcasts, nor were they compensating Suits for the use of his content since it was being broadcast free over the air as part of his employment.

It also appears that there was some corporate pushback to Bryan's content, like his characterization of the organization known as Black Lives Matter. However, Bryan suggests the problems lie with corporate management and not with the local station.

I imagine that his employer did not want to rock the corporate boat to stand up for Suits, and he decided to take his content elsewhere.

All is not lost…

Dsp

For those wanting to find Suits, “The Dark Secret Place” is available online via subscription at TheDarkSecretPlace.com. The cost, $5.95 per month, is reasonable and includes an expanded (near-daily) and uncensored version of the radio program. You can cancel at any time, so the risk to sample the content is minimal.

Bottom line…

Suits continues to search for fame and fortune in a world that is tilting increasingly left and generally replaces the truth with political narratives. Considering the decline of terrestrial talk radio, post-Rush Limbaugh, and the rise of cancel-proof platforms hosting celebrity-driven programming, Suits may have advanced his career as he is now free to pursue a life free from corporate restrictions, cancel culture, and the niceties of political correctness.

Bryan is infinitely better in an uncensored format. Definitely an un-woke supporter of the Second Amendment.

There is no doubt in my mind that Bryan is still looking for a terrestrial station, possibly a syndication deal.

What else can be said? It’s the white liberals who are destroying our nation. Many are undistinguished drones who look to social protest to give their lives meaning and to virtue signal to others.

RECALL B.S. FROM BARBRA STREISAND HIGHLIGHTS NEWSOM'S FAILURE AS CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR

In a classic demonstration of the Dunning–Kruger effect, a hypothetical cognitive bias positing that people with low ability at a task (political knowledge) overestimate their own ability, here is Barbra Streisand, a white multi-millionaire knee-jerk progressive communist democrat living in her own isolated bubble, to opine on the recall of the Democrat Disaster, California Governor Gavin Newsom.

Like most aging virtue-signaling celebrities looking to maintain relevance, Streisand is isolated from the consequences of her pronouncements by her celebrity as a performer and her wealth. Gas prices or the unduly harsh restrictions imposed by California on the “little people” mean nothing to Streisand. 

In this case, while entitled to her opinion, Streisand knows little or nothing about California politics except what she hears in her elite circle of friends and the advisors who reassure her that she is wise, virtuous, and all-knowing.

bs-1

The law’s intent…

The intent of Article 2, Sections 13-19 of the California Constitution is for Californians to recall corrupt and inept elected state officials.

Eroding health protection…

Funny Girl mentions “eroding public health protections,” ironic because Gavin Newsom supports sanctuary cities and little or no restrictions on sanctuary policies that see illegal aliens decimate our healthcare, educational, criminal, and social services. In the best Cloward-Piven strategy, overwhelming our resources to the point of collapse and the imposition of communist rationing. As for immediate public healthcare concerns, we are imposing draconian lockdowns and mask mandates on Californians while illegal aliens, many of them with positive COVID-19 tests, rush across our border and are widely dispersed into our communities throughout the state.

Funding…

As for funding, Governor Newsom, without funding restrictions, has raised tens of millions from the unions and special interests having business before the State while the recall candidates have funding limits.

By way of comparison and truth-telling, the main committee defending Newsom raised more than $46 million through July 31 and had more than $26 million in cash, giving Newsom’s side a massive war chest in the final stretch.

The California Secretary of State’s office released summary campaign finance data for reports filed through July 31. As of August 9, summary data was available for 16 candidate campaign committees. The five candidates that raised the most money so far were all Republicans: John Cox ($6.9 million), Larry Elder ($4.5 million), Kevin Faulconer ($1.9 million), Kevin Kiley ($834k), and Caitlyn Jenner ($747k). The Democrat to raise the most money was Kevin Paffrath ($388k). The top five spenders were Cox ($6.4 million), Elder ($2.2 million), Faulconer ($1.0 million), Jenner ($910k), and Paffrath ($398k).

Newsom loves corrupt unions, hates independent workers…

Self-employment…

On January 1, 2020, Newsom-signed California Assembly Bill 5 that killed independent contractors (gig workers) in California by mandating who is an independent contractor and who is an employee went into effect. The union crafted and funded legislation introduced by Assemblyperson Lorena Gonzalez-Fletcher (D-Teamster), targeted independent Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash drivers, as well as independent healthcare workers and craftspeople into being treated as employees and, in many cases, forced to join unions.

On November 3, 2020, California voters approved Proposition 22, an initiative backed by Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash that legally designates drivers for app-based ride-hailing and delivery apps as independent contractors. However, the unions, notably the progressive communist democrat SEIU (Service Employees International Union) took legal action to kill Proposition 22.

On August 20, 2020, Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch wrote Proposition 22 is unconstitutional because “it limits the power of a future Legislature to define app-based drivers as workers subject to workers’ compensation law.” That makes the entire ballot measure unenforceable, Roesch said.

As long as independent contractors receive IRS-1099 income and pay their taxes, unions contribute nothing to their benefit.

I might argue that it is the corrupt unions that are playing a major part in the corruption of their hand-picked politicians, the rising costs of goods and services, the delays in deliveries and completion dates, substandard performance, and the near-bankruptcy of the State of California when it considers unfunded union pension and healthcare liabilities.

Education – political extortion on Newsom’s watch….

The Teacher's unions are keeping schools closed while teachers draw full salaries and continue their healthcare and pension benefits. They tell the politicians what they want, science be damned, as they shake down the taxpayers.

L.A. Teachers Union: Schools Can’t Reopen Unless Charter Schools Shut Down, Police Defunded

In what appears to be a labor union power play, the United Teachers Los Angeles union announced Friday that Los Angeles Unified District schools effectively cannot reopen unless certain conditions are met: privately operated publicly funded charter schools are shut down, police are defunded, Medicare-for-All government-run health care is passed, a statewide wealth tax is implemented, housing for homeless is fully funded, “financial Support for Undocumented Students and Families,” and they want a federal bailout because “the CARES and HEROES Acts provided funding for K-12, both fell far short of what would be needed to rescue districts and state and local governments.” The source cited for this claim is the National Education Association, the largest labor union and special interest group in the United States.

Ironically, many private schools and charter schools didn’t miss a beat when Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered schools across the state to close down due to coronavirus. Within one week, most were already up and running with online learning programs, while public schools took as long as 6 weeks to even start to prepare online learning. And private and charter schools have been preparing to reopen for in-class teaching once again.

The UTLA just published a research paper, “The Same Storm, but Different Boats: The Safe and Equitable Conditions for Starting LAUSD in 2020-21,” explaining their demands, most of which have little to do with educating students. UTLA wants local authorities to “keep school campuses closed when the semester begins on Aug. 18.” <Source>

Up to $31 BILLION missing on Newsom’s watch…

CA EDD admits paying as much as $31 billion in unemployment funds to criminals

As much as $31 billion in California unemployment funds have been paid out to scammers, California EDD admits. ABC7 News' 7 On Your Side has been tracking the numerous fraudulent claims that have been plaguing the EDD and on Monday afternoon, it confirmed that even more money than previously reported has been paid out to scammers. In an EDD conference call, Julie Su, secretary for the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency said, "Of the 114 billion dollars in unemployment paid by California since March, approximately 10% has been confirmed as fraudulent. An additional 17% of the paid claims have been identified as potentially fraudulent." <Source>

What’s the reward for losing billions?

Su was nominated by the corrupt and inept Biden Administration to serve as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Labor.  A hell of a reward for losing billions of dollars on her watch. And we should mention that Su opposes freelancers as one of the top architects of California’s Assembly Bill 5, which instituted an arbitrary and vague three-stage test to prove a worker is an independent contractor instead of an employee. 

Bottom line…

California is majorly screwed unless things change. And that means Newsom must be recalled and replaced with Larry Elder.

ROB "MEATHEAD" REINER: FORGET MY WHITE PRIVILEGE, HERE'S HOW TO THINK...

You couldn’t have cast progressive communist democrat Rob Reiner more perfectly than the Mike “Meathead” Stivic, the hippy-dippy-liberal boyfriend of Archie Bunker’s airhead daughter Gloria…

Archie_BunkerAnd Meathead is still at it…

ROB_rEINER

Attacks Larry Elder on MSNBC, the home of progressive communist democrat propagandists like the unwatchable Joy Reid…

Rob Reiner: Larry Elder ‘Is a Crazy Man’ Way to ‘the Right of Donald Trump’

Anchor Joy Reid, “Larry Elder, who right now is the leading candidate on the other side, has denied brandishing a gun at his girlfriend. He says black people are more racist than white people. He says he doesn’t believe sanctuary laws or citizenship for DREAMers should be happening. He is against in-state tuition, healthcare, and driver’s licenses for the undocumented. He opposes birthright citizenship. He wants to get rid of that. He objects to cashless bail. We can go on and on and on. And he thinks that Stephen Miller should be president of the United States.”

[OCS: First, the story about brandishing a weapon was DENIED by his former girlfriend, and Politico knew it before publishing. “In her interview with The Times last week, Datig also said that Elder did not “wave” the gun, as later reported by Politico. After that account went online Thursday, Datig reiterated that point.” <Source>

Second, the fact that some black people are more racist than whites is a fact – especially those blacks that see everything through the prism of race or support Marxist race theories designed to create division and bring about a race-based revolution.

Third, illegal aliens have decimated California’s healthcare, educational, criminal, and social welfare systems as they pour unchecked over our wide-open border.

And fourth, cashless bail puts criminals back in our communities after they have committed criminal acts. The fact that you can steal up to $950 in other people’s property and receive a ticket is an abomination. And that is, $950 per separate offense.]

Reiner said, “Here is the thing, the Republicans have figured out that they cannot win based on their policies and what they stand for because they don’t really stand for anything.

[OCS: It is the Democrats who turn to the courts to get what they can’t obtain through legislation. Republicans cannot generally win in California because democrats outnumber them with open hands grasping at the entitlements used to purchase votes – especially sweetheart deals with the massive voting blocks of union members.]

So they know the only way they can get power is by finding a way to either voter suppress or do these kinds of tricks with the recall, and think about this for a second. This is over 40 million people. This is like one-eighth of the country.

[OCS: It was the Democrats who gimmicked the recall date. It was the Democrats who gimmicked the ballots so you could see who voted to recall Newsom through the pre-punched holes in the ballot return envelope. And, it is the Democrats who change voter laws, fight against forensic audits, and protest wins by the opposition.]

To come under control by this maniac, Larry Elder, is just crazy. It’s all about power grab. They are trying everywhere around the country, and they are trying it in a big way here in California. California is the biggest prize of any blue state in the country.”

[OCS: California is a failing state. And it was Albert Einstein who noted that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. It is time to do something different in California!

It is rank hypocrisy to accuse the GOP of a power grab. And, California is the canary in the coal mine – pretty much why the rest of “normal America” is afraid of “Californicating the Country.”]

He added, “Now, I want to tell you something about Larry Elder. I debated Larry Elder years ago. I passed an initiative here in California to raise cigarette taxes to fund early childhood, and we debated and because we knew that by raising cigarette taxes, you were going to reduce people smoking, which was a good thing. Larry Elder actually took the position in the debate that it was a good thing that people smoked because they would die sooner, and it would reduce the health care costs and the drag on the public for Medicare, Medicaid. This is a crazy man.

[OCS: Elder was being facetious, and Reiner couldn’t see the humor – even now when he exploits the issue.

But I remember that campaign…

Reiner, as the Chairman of California's First 5 Commission, improperly used $23 million in public funds to produce television and media spots in his campaign for Proposition 82, a universal-preschool tax.

“Gloria Romero, Democratic majority leader of the state Senate, said Reiner's First 5 Children and Families Commission "crossed the line" by spending $23 million from November to January on TV and radio ads touting the benefits of preschool. At the time, Reiner also was leading a drive to collect signatures for a ballot measure that would tax the wealthy to provide free preschool for 4-year-olds. The proposal qualified for the June 6 statewide ballot as Proposition 82.” <Source>]

And like you say, he is way to the right of Donald Trump. So this is scary. People cannot be complacent. You’ve got to hand in your ballot. Get your ballot and vote no. That’s all you have to do. <Source>

[OCS: “Orange man bad” does not seem to work when we see what the feckless, corrupt, and addled Joe Biden and his cadre of progressive communist democrat Obamacons have done, and are actively doing to this country.]

Bottom line…

California needs to tell Meathead to “Stifle Yourself!”

We are so screwed if California continues on its present course.
