DEMOCRAT MEDIA PROPAGANDISTS RUSH TO PROTECT BIDEN

The progressive communist democrats, fearing major electoral losses in 2022 and 2024, are rushing to protect the addled, feckless President, Joseph Biden, while the tech tyrants censor negative commentary…

BIDEN’S LEADERSHIP

Disgusting…

Lay off Joe Biden: He didn’t “lose” Afghanistan — we are finally leaving it alone

We spent 20 messed-up years in Afghanistan flexing our muscles and money, and now we are making a messy exit

[OCS: What’s this we, Kemosabe? This unprecedented and precipitous withdrawal was planned, executed, and botched by the Biden Administration.]

Do you really think our pull-out from Afghanistan would have looked any different under the man who handled the coronavirus pandemic so well that he cashiered 400,000 American lives? He claimed over and over that he was going to end the "forever wars" and get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan once and for all. He was the president who said he could "make a deal" with the Taliban that was supposed to lead to a peaceful reconciliation with the Afghan government upon the withdrawal of American troops.

[OCS: Notice how the author not-so-cleverly failed to place the earned blame on the Biden Administration and immediately went into their “attack Donald Trump” mode? Blaming Trump for the response to the emerging Chinese Communist Virus is intellectually dishonest, false, and misleading. There is no operational equivalence between what Trump might have done as he followed the recommendations of his generals, unlike Biden, who ignored the advice of his military and acted precipitously.]

Taliban insurgents cleverly allowed cameras from Al Jazeera to film them walking through the presidential palace in Kabul demonstrating how a neat and tidy transfer of power looks, compared with what was attempted by the violent Trump mob that tried to take over the U.S. Capitol. This has led to predictable hand-wringing and pearl-clutching by the usual gaggle of Trump puppets, who the likes of MSNBC and CNN have been only too happy to allow on air to spew their anti-Biden garbage.

[OCS: This is unconscionable – to compare a riot by unarmed idiots that could have never taken over a building, let alone an entire country.]

<snip – you may wish to read the entire piece, in full and in context, that spins the narrative of a few people into something quite different from reality.>

Whether or not we'll learn a lesson this time is doubtful. But what's not doubtful is that it's not Biden's fault. It's ours, because we paid the taxes and elected the politicians who put us there, and we elected the politicians who kept us there, and now we have elected the politician who is getting us out.

[OCS: Get us out? You mean leaving Americans and our allies behind enemy lines.  Do you mean sending in more than three times the number of troops in-country before their haphazard withdrawal? This is becoming a slow-moving hostage scenario.]

Good on him. <Source

Bottom line…

We were not defeated in Afghanistan; Biden surrendered. Hiding in Camp David is a display of cowardice, not leadership. It appears that the progressive communist democrats hate former President Trump and the GOP more than the child-raping, barbarous Taliban thugs.

We are so screwed.

TIME TO MODIFY OUR CRIMINAL CODE TO COVER THE SUPRESSION OF THERAPEUTIC INFORMATION

rx-crime

It would be a felony to alter or suppress any therapeutic information affecting 10,000 or more individuals for political, commercial, professional, reputational, or personal reasons.  If such actions were taken under the color of authority while employed by the government or as a government agent, consultant, or contractor, penalties, and fines would be subject to enhancement.

India's Ivermectin Blackout
By Justus R. Hope, MD (Aug 9, 2021 Updated Aug 13, 2021)

News of India's defeat of the Delta variant should be common knowledge. It is just about as obvious as the nose on one's face. It is so clear when one looks at the graphs that no one can deny it.

Yet, for some reason, we are not allowed to talk about it. Thus, for example, Wikipedia cannot mention the peer-reviewed meta-analyses by Dr. Tess Lawrie or Dr. Pierre Kory published in the American Journal of Therapeutics. 

https://www.thedesertreview.com/opinion/columnists/wikipedia-and-a-pint-of-gin/article_22ffa0d8-dde9-11eb-be75-d7b0b1f2ff67.html

Wikipedia is not allowed to publish the recent meta-analysis on Ivermectin authored by Dr. Andrew Hill. Furthermore, it is not allowed to say anything concerning www.ivmmeta.com showing the 61 studies comprising 23,000 patients which reveal up to a 96% reduction in death [prophylaxis] with Ivermectin.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3AIvermectin

One can see the bias in Wikipedia by going on the "talk" pages for each subject and reading about the fierce attempts of editors to add these facts and the stone wall refusals by the "senior" editors who have an agenda. And that agenda is not loyalty to your health.

The easy way to read the “talk” page on any Wikipedia subject is to click the top left “talk” button. Anyone can then review the editors’ discussions.

There is a blackout on any conversation about how Ivermectin beat COVID-19 in India. When I discussed the dire straits that India found itself in early this year with 414,000 cases per day, and over 4,000 deaths per day, and how that evaporated within five weeks of the addition of Ivermectin, I am often asked, "But why is there no mention of that in the news?"

Yes, exactly. Ask yourself why India’s success against the Delta variant with Ivermectin is such a closely guarded secret by the NIH and CDC. Second, ask yourself why no major media outlets reported this fact, but instead, tried to confuse you with false information by saying the deaths in India are 10 times greater than official reports.

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2021/07/20/1018438334/indias-pandemic-death-toll-estimated-at-about-4-million-10-times-the-official-co

Perhaps NPR is trying so hard because NPR is essentially a government mouthpiece. The US government is “all-in” with vaccines with the enthusiasm of a 17th century Catholic Church “all-in” with a Geocentric Model of the Universe disputing Galileo. Claiming that India’s numbers are inaccurate might distract from the overwhelming success of Ivermectin.

But in the end, the truth matters. It mattered in 1616, and it matters in 2021.

<Source: More…>

Bottom line…

Even if the information is false, misleading, or is preliminary, doesn’t it demand a free and open forum for discussion? If not in peer-reviewed journals, then in common publications of the day. Data drives discussion and informs decisions. To curtail the dissemination and discussion of medical information and potential therapeutics should be a crime.

That is not to say that official government agencies cannot publish warnings or dispute the presented information -- for that is the very nature of open-source information.

We appear to be screwed.

AFGHANISTAN: THE ONLY THING LEFT FOR THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

In a sheer display of complete idiocy, we have a news commentator announcing “The crowd is shouting ‘death to America,’ but appears peaceful” while the United States Department of State calls on the Taliban to form an “inclusive and representative government” as they go door-to-door with a death list for anyone who helped America.

The only thing left for the Biden Administration is the use of their media propagandists to distract the American public from the unfolding catastrophe that is causing our allies to question the loyalty and ability of the United States to help defend them in a crisis. Notice, the Russian and Chinese embassies in Afghanistan remain open for business. Iran is already sending advisors.

 Biden has destabilized the region and the media is not covering Biden's failure, they are screaming "Republicans Pounce." Watch the switcheroo -- Trump did want to leave Afghanistan, but it was Biden and his cadre of leg-humping generals who planned and led the withdrawal. Biden has been in office for seven months, he can no longer blame Trump for his failures.

Biden’s Afghanistan Surrender
The President tries to duck responsibility for a calamitous withdrawal.

President Biden’s statement on Saturday washing his hands of Afghanistan deserves to go down as one of the most shameful in history by a Commander in Chief at such a moment of American retreat. As the Taliban closed in on Kabul, Mr. Biden sent a confirmation of U.S. abandonment that absolved himself of responsibility, deflected blame to his predecessor, and more or less invited the Taliban to take over the country.

Note that Mr. Biden is more critical of his predecessor than he is of the Taliban. The President has spent seven months ostentatiously overturning one Trump policy after another on foreign and domestic policy. Yet he now claims Afghanistan policy is the one he could do nothing about.

This is a pathetic denial of his own agency, and it’s also a false choice. It’s as if Winston Churchill, with his troops surrounded at Dunkirk, had declared that Neville Chamberlain got him into this mess and the British had already fought too many wars on the Continent. <Source>

BOOK

According to sources familiar with the book, Woodward and Costa interviewed more than 200 insiders for "Peril," resulting in more than 6,000 pages of transcripts. CNN obtained the book's jacket, which says it "takes readers deep inside the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 campaign, and the Pentagon and Congress, with eyewitness accounts of what really happened."

Woodward and Costa obtained "never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, emails, meeting notes and other personal and government records," sources familiar with the book told CNN.

"Peril" also goes behind the scenes during the earliest days of the Biden administration, just weeks after the attack at the Capitol and as the coronavirus pandemic continued to rage throughout the country. The book's title comes from a line in Biden's inaugural address, according to sources familiar with the book. <Source>

Bottom line…

And you trust these progressive communist democrats with Iran’s nuclear future?

GENERAL MARK MILLEY MUST RESIGN OR BE COURT-MARTIALED

Joe Biden gets a pass as a vegetable that gets lost on the way to the Oval Office. General Mark Milley has no excuse for this military catastrophe – not the Afghan war, the withdrawal effort.

MILLEY

June 23, 2021 – General Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testifying alongside Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on 2022 budget requests…

“First of all, on the issue of critical race theory, et cetera, I’ll obviously have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is, but I do think it’s important, actually, for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read. The United States Military Academy is a university, and it is important that we train and we understand. I want to understand white rage. I’m white and I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the constitution of the United States of America? What caused that? I want to find that out. I want to maintain an open mind here and I do want to analyze it. It’s important that we understand that, because our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and guardians, they come from the American people. So it is important that the leaders now and in the future do understand it.” — Gen. Mark Milley

July 5, 2021 – Leaving Bagram Airfield in the dark of night…

The U.S. announced Friday that it had completely vacated its biggest airfield in the country in advance of a final withdrawal that the Pentagon says will be completed by the end of August.

The U.S. left Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield after nearly 20 years by shutting off the electricity and slipping away in the night without notifying the base’s new Afghan commander, who discovered the Americans’ departure more than two hours after they left, Afghan military officials said. <Source>

Decorated Army veteran and military commentator asks the important question…

Hundreds running next to a taxiing jet, desperately trying to get into its cargo bay as it prepares to depart Kabul International Airport amid Taliban gunfire…

kabul-airport

Note: several people fell to their death after take-off.

Meanwhile, American authorities gave Americans and others bad advice, putting them BEHIND enemy lines during the rapid Taliban takeover of Kabul…

The U.S. Embassy in Kabul told Americans to “shelter in place” in a security warning on Sunday, noting that there were reports of gunfire on the city airport.

In a series of two alerts, the embassy initially said it had suspended consular services and warned Americans not to come to the embassy building or the airport. However, a revised alert sent less than 30 minutes later removed the warning not to come to the Embassy or airport. Both alerts said the airport may be the target of gunfire. <Source>

A State Department official says the American flag is no longer flying at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul amid evacuations from Afghanistan’s capital. The official tells The Associated Press that nearly all embassy personnel have been relocated to the city’s international airport.

The official says the flag itself is with embassy personnel, who are among thousands of Americans and others waiting for flights. The official was not authorized to discuss the details publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity

In a joint statement Sunday night, the State Department and the Pentagon say they are taking steps to secure the airport for safe departures by way of civilian and military flights.

The statement says the U.S. security presence will have expanded to nearly 6,000 troops over the next two days and will take over air traffic control.

Those leaving include American citizens who have been living in Afghanistan, locally employed staff of the U.S. mission in Kabul and their families, and other particularly vulnerable Afghan nationals.

Also part of the departure plan are thousands of Afghans eligible for U.S. special immigrant visas. Nearly 2,000 of those with special visas have arrived in the United States over the past two weeks.<Source>

Bottom line…

General Milley and Pentagon planners knew we were leaving and gave up a secure, defensible airbase. This is beyond incompetence; it is a dereliction of duty. They also knew that Afghani forces were trained to fight with American advisors, air cover, and the knowledge they could always call for help. They were not trained as an independent fighting force, only an adjunct to American forces. 

Milley and others must resign or face courts-martial hearings.

We are so screwed.

AFGHANISTAN: WHAT OR WHO IS TO BLAME?

SURRENDER IN AFGHANISTAN – A STAIN ON AMERICA

astainonamerica

What went wrong?

The attack on September 11, 2001, was perpetrated by members of al-Qaeda, a Muslim extremist group based in Afghanistan and headed by Osama bin Laden. The Taliban, created, funded, and armed by Pakistan's ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence), refused repeated demands to destroy Afghan terrorist training facilities and surrender terrorist Osama bin Laden and his fellow terrorists.

In response to the Taliban's refusal, America attacked Afghanistan.  The initial mission was to deny terrorists Afghan training and staging bases, to kill or capture the terrorist leaders, and to leave with a reminder that America would be back if necessary. Success was defined.

Post attack, al-Qaeda was diminished, but bin Laden continued to elude capture – later found to be living in a military-controlled area in Pakistan. (With no consequences to Pakistan after discovery.)

Unfortunately, what happened next is an American travesty costing approximately 2,500 American lives, at least $1 trillion (including $89 billion budgeted for training the Afghan army), and 20 years of corruption on all sides – all driven by politicians who believed that America could instill democracy in a tribal nation, ruled by a religion incompatible with modern civilization and where force and brutality were common-- where individuals welcomed martyrdom to enter paradise.  

Beyond the political pipedreams of George W. Bush’s neocon national security holdovers, the military-industrial complex went all in as they saw a continuing source of riches.

Complicit was the military’s junior leadership intent on punching their career tickets – a cadre of rotating pencil-pushers who stayed within the wire, pencil-whipped their PowerPoint presentations, and avoided the career dings that come with telling the truth to senior-level military leadership who were both risk- and media-adverse.

Complicit also were the politicians who so feared risk and the potential of adverse media that they helped create rules of engagement that favored our enemies over our soldiers lest some innocent civilian be killed and be featured in a front-page story on a bleeding-heart anti-America rag like the New York Times.

One might ask, how do you win a battle fighting your own rules of engagement when your enemies respect nothing but force and interpret any humanitarian gesture as a weakness to be exploited?

Bottom line…

The truth is that, while there was a geographical point on a map designated as Afghanistan, it was never a unified nation. It was a loose confederation of tribes, criminal gangs, and freebooters mostly living under 12th-century conditions.

In reality, the President of Afghanistan was never more than the jumped-up Mayor of Kabul. Afghanis recruited into a “national army” were not fighting for a unified nation; they mostly saw a source of jobs, arms, good food, good pay, and free handouts. An unmotivated “fighting force” that mostly cut and ran when challenged by the Taliban -- abandoning their American arms to the enemy. With America’s announced departure (on 9/11/21), and without American leadership air cover, there was nothing to fight for.

Once again, the elite, credentialed establishment sold America out with its stupidity, corruption, and arrogance. Garbage people who thought they were the smartest people in the room because ordinary people lacked the courage to stand up and say the Emperor was naked.

Biden is a disaster, giving away the well-guarded Bagram Air Base before evacuating all American citizens and those (including family members) who aided the United States and who will be tortured and executed if captured by the Taliban. Lying up to the end – don’t believe your lying eyes, only our narratives.

Look for a continuing money suck. Paying for hostages and humanitarian aid. Already the Chinese are ramping up their mining activities and the Iranians sending “advisors.” Rumor is that the Biden Administration promises to shower the Taliban with cash to avoid a Saigon-like public relations disaster.

WHO IS RUNNING THE GOVERNMENT WHILE BIDEN IS ON VACATION?

Taliban takeover…

The Taliban is conquering Afghanistan and slaughtering and torturing men, women, and children.

All of the Americans who sacrificed their lives or were severely maimed have been dishonored.

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a cautionary warning about the likelihood of a terrorist attack.

The Taliban are now in possession of more Blackhawk helicopters than 166 other nations around the globe.

After Biden Botches Afghanistan, DHS Warns of New Terror Threat

All the progress made by President Trump in the War on Terror seems to have been magically erased by Joe Biden, as the Department of Homeland Security issued a new terrorist threat alert on Friday, reports the Washington Times. According to the report, DHS has detected “signs of life in al Qaeda ahead of the 20th anniversary of the 2001 terror attacks.”

“The signs of life included the Islamist terrorist organization issuing its first new magazine in more than four years,” reads the report. “Homeland Security also reiterated its warnings over dangers stemming from what it has come to call racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists. It said that ‘increased societal strains’ during the coronavirus pandemic may spur greater violence from those elements.”

Of course, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security won’t link these signs of life to the Taliban’s nearly complete takeover of Afghanistan, thanks to Biden’s withdrawal. Nope. COVID! Blame COVID! Joe Biden even recently said he does not regret his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan.

The Afghanis were taught to fight under American air cover, which was abruptly withdrawn. Billions of American taxpayer dollars have disappeared with the enemy seemingly equipped with American arms and fighting vehicles.

President Joe Biden has shamed Americans by publicly stating that the second most infamous day in American attacks, September 11, 2021, will serve as America’s last day in Afghanistan—to be known by the enemy as TVIA-day, Taliban Victory in Afghanistan. The Communist Chinese are already cutting mining deals.

All the while, President Biden is on vacation, and Americans are wondering how soon the United Nations and weak-kneed progressive communist democrats will see the terrible videos of beheadings and demand American intervention.

So who is in charge?

Certainly, it isn’t President Biden or Vice President Harris – both sock puppets for Susan Rice and her cadre of Obamacons.

sr-bho

Haitian disaster…

How many billions of dollars will, once again, flow into the corrupt cesspool that is Haiti in the form of humanitarian aid in response to a devastating 7.2 earthquake and an impending tropical storm? Money that will disappear and never been seen by the suffering Haitian people. 

United States invasion…

Meanwhile, our Southern Border is wide open, and we are being invaded by a hoard of illegal aliens, flooding our nation will poverty, illiteracy, disease, crime, and, yes, terrorists.

Our Constitution is being shredded…

It appears that petty tyrants have overridden the constitution using specious emergency powers. A cowardly Supreme Court refuses to rule on clearly unconstitutional actions.

Censorship…

The media moguls and tech tyrants are censoring the flow of accurate and important information – at the urging or explicit direction of governmental authorities.

Bottom line…

One political party is at the root of our current problems. The progressive communist democrats! Distracting Americans with their bullpucky about former President Donald Trump, an insurrection that never happened, and the manipulation of our elections.

We are well and totally screwed.

But we can push back – starting under their noses…

CALIFORNIA: WILL THE DEMOCRATS STEAL THE RECALL ELECTION?

There is NO doubt in my mind that smarmy elitist Gavin Newsom must be recalled. Our state is aflame with wildfires, $30 BILLION in unemployment assistance has gone to criminals and fraudsters. The unions are dictating educational policy that creates racial animosity and division, and we are regulating small businesses out of business.

My recommendation to begin this change is to vote for Larry Elder, a commonsense conservative with roots in the South Central area of Los Angeles, and who knows what dangerous and ineffective schools look like.

A nod to former Democrat Mayor of Chicago and Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel…

During the “pandemic,” it’s all about your safety…

Learn more about your safe and contactless voting options at LAVote.net!

Stay safe,

Dean C. Logan

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk

[OCS: Can a partisan hack with a dubious history be trusted with the recall election? Is this a cautionary tale?

Dean Logan stole ’04 governor’s race, and he’s at it again in California

The man who stole the governor’s election in Washington state is now doing the same thing in Los Angeles. We had absolute criminals in charge of the Democratic Party in Washington in 2004.

In case you need your memory refreshed, that was when Attorney General Christine Gregoire was running for governor against Republican candidate Dino Rossi. When they counted all the votes, Dino Rossi was the winner – by 261 votes. Such a thin margin triggers an automatic recount. When they did the recount, they found some more Gregoire votes, but Rossi won again — by 42 votes this time.

And that is when the Democratic machine of Ron Simms, Christine Gregoire, and the head of King County Elections at the time, a guy named Dean Logan, got involved. What was revealed in subsequent lawsuits was remarkable. On the third recount, they miraculously found a few hundred more votes for Gregoire to steal away the governor’s race. Apparently, there were 300 illegal votes, 400 more where the voter could not be verified, 240 felons who voted illegally, 44 votes from dead people, and 10 people who voted twice. When all of those votes were counted, the third time around, all of a sudden Christine Gregoire was the governor.

Then and now, I think it was a Democratic Party criminal conspiracy. The guy spearheading this in King County was Dean Logan, who was finding uncounted ballots all over. He was absolutely amazing at finding Gregoire ballots in between counts.

Dean Logan had to resign in disgrace from King County Elections. Where did he go? Los Angeles County. <Source>

Bottom line…

Under normal circumstances, I would consider this an enhancement to our present voting system and the precursor to biometrically-authenticated voting using electronic devices. However, given the millions of dollars spent in delaying or derailing forensic audits of voting systems, I have zero trust in any election system managed by overtly partisan progressive communist democrats.

While the quote “Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything" might be misattributed to the communist tyrant and mass murderer Josef Stalin, the core truth is self-evident.

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT LARRY ELDER SHOULD BE THE CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR

ELDER-1

1. Crime
From massive shoplifting to murder, CA crime rates are zooming up.   The most dramatic increases in crime are ALL occurring in the big, Democrat-controlled cities.  Democrats OWN the crime spree.  I think that ‘crime’ might be the top issue in this recall.

[OCS: In what other state can you walk into a store, steal less than $950 – and if caught given a ticket, and if arrested, released on a $0 bail?]

2.  Homeles​sness
Especially since Newsom publicly INVITED the nation’s homeless to come to California where we will take care of them. NO CA voter wants more homeless here. Even our state’s HOMELESS don’t want more homeless here!

[OCS: In what other state does the government openly provide drug paraphernalia and needles to street dwellers? Or accept needles, urine, and human feces on sidewalks? Not to mention panhandling, mugging, and crime? The city bought trailers to house the homeless AND THEN discovered they needed water, electric, and sewer services.]

3.​  CA gas taxes and prices
Our TOTAL CA gas tax and fee costs exceed $1.20 a gallon.  Yet our roads are among the worst in the nation. It’s a bread and butter issue that voters can and do understand.

[OCS: Just paid $5/gallon for gas.]

4.  Lockdowns
It appears that variations of a lockdown WILL be imposed again and again by Democrats whenever some new variation of a communicable disease appears.  People are sick and tired of this oppression, and of all the harmful side effects.

5.  Newsom’s hypocrisy
Newsom has blatantly violated his own mask and social distancing mandates, while unleashing police on the rest of us to enforce his diktats.  Moreover, he was fine with closing the public schools for a year while HIS kids attended an OPEN private school.

6.  The theft of THIRTY BILLION DOLLARS in CA fraudulent unemployment claims
Much of that loss will have to be paid by employees having bigger “unemployment insurance” payments deducted from their paychecks in the future. Most of that stolen money went to California prisoners and ​international crime syndicates.
Newsom was in charge. Not a SINGLE CA bureaucrat was fired as a result.  He doesn’t like to talk about it.

7.  ​High Speed Rail (HSR)
CA HSR is now opposed by voters by at least a 2-1 margin.  It’s the madness that proves Democrats should not hold office in the Golden State.

[OCS: The train goes nowhere, it is not high-speed, and only the developers, contractors, consultants, and unions are benefiting – as they ignore our functioning freeways.]

8. Public Education
The prolonged closing and “masking” of public schools while most private schools long ago reopened has enraged many parents.  Clearly the schools (and the politicians) are run by the teacher unions FOR the teacher unions.
The recall is a great time to call for “school choice.”  Let the parents decide what’s best for THEIR families.

[OCS: Teaching students to hate each other because of their skin color.]

9.  Fires, Water and Electricity
Newsom has GROSSLY mismanaged California’s fire threats, water supply, and the reliability (and price) of electricity.

10.  Newsom’s de facto support of open borders.
Indeed, Newsom recently invited the WORLD to come to our welfare state, stating that “we” will take care of them.
NOTE:  The GOP must NOT be anti-immigration. It should favor VETTED, limited immigration — with enforceable limits on welfare access by immigrants.  Even INCREASED immigration can make sense with these sensible safeguards in place. <Source>

Bottom line…

We are at the tipping point. Do the right thing.

ONE CITIZEN SPEAKING: JUST THINKING...

JUST-THINKING-HEADER

Thinking about MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and the Cyber Symposium circus…

EXCLUSIVE: Cyber expert says his team can’t prove Mike Lindell’s claims that China hacked election

The cyber expert on the “red team” hired by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell now says the key data underpinning the theory that China hacked the 2020 election unveiled at the Cyber Symposium is illegitimate.

Several cyber experts at the symposium became frustrated late into the first day with not being provided with packet captures.

Mr. Merritt and Mr. Wiebe said the missing packet captures could be a result of either the format the data was sent in or they were withheld by the source of the information, Dennis L. Montgomery.

Mr. Montgomery is a former government contractor who developed cyber tools named HAMMER and SCORECARD, which were allegedly used by the U.S. to influence foreign elections. Mr. Montgomery came forward with the data after he said the tools were being used to influence U.S. elections, according to Mr. Wiebe.

Mr. Merritt confirmed that Mr. Montgomery was the source of the data.

But the data Mr. Montgomery sent contains no packet captures and cannot be used to validate Mr. Lindell’s marquee theory, which he planned to unveil at the symposium, said the two experts.

Mr. Montgomery reportedly suffered a stroke on the eve of the symposium and has not been in contact with Mr. Lindell’s team or any cyber experts at the symposium.

He has been behind several other high-profile conspiracy theories, including allegations that U.S. security agencies wiretapped Trump Tower while Mr. Trump was running for president in 2016.   <Source>

Alan Dershowitz rips Dominion case at Cyber Symposium

High-profile defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz Thursday berated a federal court’s decision to allow Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.3 billion lawsuit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to go forward.

Mr. Dershowitz‘s comment came during an appearance at Mr. Lindell‘s Cyber Symposium, where Mr. Lindell had promised to present “irrefutable” proof that China hacked the 2020 election.

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the voting machine manufacturer’s lawsuit against Mr. Lindell could proceed, despite Mr. Lindell‘s requests to dismiss the suit on First Amendment grounds.<Source>

I believe that Lindell may have been flattered, stroked, and conned by various individuals who saw Lindell was enjoying his newfound fame and willing to spend a portion of his fortune backing his beliefs. I have seen nothing in the presentations of Attorneys Sidney “Kraken” Powell, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and L. Lin Woods, other than a number of declarations and affidavits from dubious sources, that would convince me of their fantastical election claims.

I believe that the voting systems, like all big projects modified over time, contained exploitable vulnerabilities. While hacking always remains a possibility, I have yet to see proof that the vulnerabilities were actually exploited in the ways described by the legal documents. I plan to keep an open mind and continue to wait for some proof that will withstand a court challenge by court-recognized experts.

As for constitutional attorney Alan Dershowitz, I am not convinced that the First Amendment gives you the absolute right to slander, libel, and defame commercial enterprises, inflicting great reputational damage and requiring the expenditure of large sums to mitigate the damage. When you file allegations in a court document and use “expert” witnesses, one might reasonably expect that the witnesses were vetted and the allegations were corroborated with more than hearsay and speculation.

From the persistence and ferocity of the attack on forensic audits, I believe that there were significant irregularities in the election process and, when totaled, might overcome the margin of victory.  However, I do not believe there will be a constitutional remedy beyond a footnote in history and asterisks next to Biden’s name. If anything, the impermissible and illegal changes in the laws and procedures governing the conduct of the elections are likely to be the smoking gun – in plain sight for all to see.

Considering the audit reports so far and the historical record of the Democrat Party on election fraud, my estimate is 80/20 that the election was subverted.

Thinking about the origins of the virus…

Smoking Gun Evidence of Chinese COVID Cover-up Emerges

As the COVID Delta wave rages across the globe, China’s role in creating the pandemic is once again under scrutiny. The Washington Post is now reporting that Ben Embarek, head of the World Health Organization’s origin investigation into COVID-19, is admitting that CCP officials essentially dictated what was to be put in the report.

Part of that appears to be a clear attempt to cover up the lab leak theory, framing it as a distant possibility with no evidentiary backing. <Source>

WHO Scientist Says Chinese Pressured Investigation Team to Drop Lab-Leak Theory

“Follow the science,” right? Probably not the best advice when the science is tainted because of pressure from a Communist government to manipulate the conclusion.

The WHO sent a team of “blue-ribbon experts” to China in order to investigate the origins of COVID-19. The investigation is vital to discovering how the coronavirus responsible for the disease made the leap from infecting animals to infecting humans. Knowing which animal was responsible could lead to better treatments for COVID, more effective vaccines, and perhaps clues to how we can stop the next pandemic from starting.

The WHO team went to China because that’s where the first cases of COVID-19 appeared. But from the beginning of the team’s investigation, the Chinese Communist government put roadblocks in the way of the WHO’s efforts to uncover as much information about the virus as possible.

The Chinese delayed visas so that the team was several months late in assembling in China. The team was not given access to early patients or their histories. Reports about the research were lost or the team was denied access.

After solemnly telling the world they would cooperate fully, the Chinese stonewalled the effort. <Source>

So true -- “Follow the science,” right? Probably not the best advice when the science is tainted because of pressure from any government or political party willing to create political narratives by manipulating findings or suppressing alternative theories or findings.

From the virus sequencing I reviewed, I believe the virus was artificially created and probably leaked from the lab.

I do not doubt that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) did try to cover up their responsibility and that delays in notifying the global medical community contributed greatly to the global pandemic. It is also possible that, once the virus escaped, the CCP did exploit the pandemic, and for this, they should pay reparations and be excluded from the community for a period of time. Considering they appear willing to use military threats to stave off threats of political and economic sanctions, it remains for a strong coalition of nations to push back against China – which is unlikely. 

Thinking about masks and mandates…

Fact: The virus has been unleashed into the world, it exists, it will continue to exist and mutate, there is no such thing as zero-covid, and the answer is natural immunity and effective therapeutics to treat the disease and its symptoms.

Fact: All government actions taken were to “flatten the curve” and prevent healthcare facilities from being overwhelmed.

Fact: bone-headed government policies under Governors Cuomo (D-NY), Whitmer (D-MI), Murphy (D-NJ), and others killed thousands of elderly individuals without one shred of consideration for “the science” and the well-established and customary protocols of infection control in nursing homes and senior facilities.

As a member of the highest risk cohort (age plus comorbidities), I have been reading the medical literature about masks, vaccines, and therapeutics. My conclusion is that we are essentially playing a game of “he said – she said.”

I have lost all faith in government and other well-credentialed “experts,” prestigious institutions, and scientific journals—a shattering loss of trust. In addition to a loss of trust in the “experts,” I am losing faith in the data – much of which seems highly manipulated and cannot be measured against a metric that allows us to make rational decisions. Therefore, my only advisors are my own physicians who know me, my conditions, and what they have seen in clinical practice at the world-class hospitals in which they work.

As for the politicians who are using their emergency powers for political purposes, prioritizing protests over religious and other celebrations, they are beneath contempt. They should be ignored, defeated, and thrown out of office—ditto for school boards.

Thinking about Afghanistan…

'Not an Evacuation,' Insists State Department as Pentagon Sends 3,000 Troops to Evacuate U.S. Personnel

During Thursday's State Department Press Briefing, spokesman Ned Price said that the "increased tempo" of the Taliban's offensive is "of grave concern" but sought to tamp down assertions that a reduction of U.S. diplomatic personnel in Kabul is an evacuation as the Taliban closes in on Afghanistan's capital and the Pentagon readies an airlift.

Characterizing the reduction in embassy staff as a continuation of April's ordered departure that is resulting in fewer civilian personnel while leaving just a core diplomatic presence on the ground, Price struggled to make a convincing argument that the Afghan people could be confident in its partnership with the United States.

Price insisted the "overall status has not changed" at the embassy in Kabul which "remains open" — albeit with a smaller staff — as more civilian diplomatic staff prepare to leave Kabul through what increasingly appears to be a hastily planned evacuation. <Source>

This is Saigon 2.0! To pretend otherwise is similar to pretending that Joe Biden is a functioning President and our foreign affairs are not being run by Susan Rice and a cadre of Obamacons.

The fact that Joe Biden publicly announced 9/11/21 as our final day in Afghanistan was amateurish, dangerous, and just plain stupid. Why not just announce TVIA day – Taliban Victory in Afghanistan day when the existing government and those who assisted the United States will be beheaded? Accompanied by an iconic photo of the Taliban in the U.S. Embassy. Sounds like a Susan Rice/Ben Rhodes/Samantha Power production.

It was idiotic to think we could democratize a foreign culture rooted in the 12th century by troops, money, and good intentions. However, considering the profits to be made and the untraceable cash flowing through the system, much of the blame should be placed on our political leaders and the special interests who profited from the conflict.

For all those liberals who scream about human rights and protest over the use of police force in the United States, where is your voice about Chinese ethnic cleansing, live organ harvesting, and the women who will be condemned to a life of torture under the Taliban? Where is your voice on black-on-black crime in the progressive communist democrat-governed inner cities?

I am still waiting to see the U.S. punish Pakistan for hiding bin Laden while we were looking for him in the tribal areas of Pakistan?

Biden's, or should I say Susan Rice's, handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal is almost an invitation for Putin to take Ukraine and Xi Jinping to take Taiwan. 

Will we let our sunk costs in terms of time, effort, costs, and lives determine our future actions?

Bottom line…

We appear to be slipping toward the abyss and need new conspiracy theories because, unlike what we were told by the progressive communist democrat propagandists in the mainstream media, the old conspiracy theories are coming true.
