THE COMMUNISTS AND COMMUNIST SYMPATHIZERS RUN THE DEMOCRAT PARTY

Despite its public-friendly patriotic-sounding name, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a hardcore communist organization dedicated to the destruction of capitalism and the promotion of communism.

Over the years, the communists infiltrated the unions that wormed their way into every aspect of our lives and now represent a clear and present danger to America.

DSA-UNIONS

If you believe that our government’s leadership, agencies, and institutions are not infiltrated by communists and doubt the influence of the DSA in government, you might want to review this large list of candidates and elected officials affiliated with or endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America. Many of the members are followers of the late Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci.

It should surprise nobody that individuals like …

Neil Abercrombie (HI-01), Tammy Baldwin (WI-02), Xavier Becerra (CA-31), Madeleine Bordallo (GU-AL), Robert Brady (PA-01),Corrine Brown (FL-03), Michael Capuano (MA-08), André Carson (IN-07), Donna Christensen (VI-AL), Yvette Clarke (NY-11), William “Lacy” Clay (MO-01), Emanuel Cleaver (MO-05), Steve Cohen (TN-09), John Conyers (MI-14), Elijah Cummings (MD-07), Danny Davis (IL-07), Peter DeFazio (OR-04), Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), Rep. Donna F. Edwards (MD-04), Keith Ellison (MN-05), Sam Farr (CA-17), Chaka Fattah (PA-02), Bob Filner (CA-51), Barney Frank (MA-04), Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11), Alan Grayson (FL-08), Luis Gutierrez (IL-04), John Hall (NY-19), Phil Hare (IL-17), Maurice Hinchey (NY-22), Michael Honda (CA-15), Jesse Jackson, Jr. (IL-02), Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX-30), Hank Johnson (GA-04), Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Carolyn Kilpatrick (MI-13), Barbara Lee (CA-09), John Lewis (GA-05), David Loebsack (IA-02), Ben R. Lujan (NM-3), Carolyn Maloney (NY-14), Ed Markey (MA-07), Jim McDermott (WA-07), James McGovern (MA-03), George Miller (CA-07), Gwen Moore (WI-04), Jerrold Nadler (NY-08), Eleanor Holmes-Norton (DC-AL), John Olver (MA-01), Ed Pastor (AZ-04), Donald Payne (NJ-10), Chellie Pingree (ME-01), Charles Rangel (NY-15), Laura Richardson (CA-37), Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-34), Bobby Rush (IL-01), Linda Sánchez (CA-47), Jan Schakowsky (IL-09), José Serrano (NY-16), Louise Slaughter (NY-28), Pete Stark (CA-13), Bennie Thompson (MS-02), John Tierney (MA-06), Nydia Velazquez (NY-12), Maxine Waters (CA-35), Mel Watt (NC-12), Henry Waxman (CA-30), Peter Welch (VT-AL), Robert Wexler (FL-1), were past or present members. <Source>

Or Democrat members of the powerful Judiciary Committee, Progressive Caucus, and the racist Congressional Black Caucus are likely to have DSA ties.

Of course, we must reserve a special place for Senator Bernie Sanders, an old-fashioned red whose cadre of “Bernie Bros” almost anointed him the Democrat nominee for the Presidency of the United States.

Perhaps it might surprise you to find that Peter Paul Montgomery Buttigieg, the current Secretary of Transportation and the former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, grew up in a communist home where his father, Joseph Buttigieg, a professor of critical theory and the relationship between culture and politics at Notre Dame University from 1980 until his retirement in 2017, spent his entire professional life editing the journals of Antonio Gramsci. His father also “is the man who introduced the thinking on Michel Foucault, an advocate of political correctness and homosexualism, to the University of Notre Dame.” It should surprise nobody that “Mayor Pete,” who ran for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020, is openly gay. There is no doubt that Buttigieg knows exactly what he is about as a Harvard graduate (history and literature) and Rhodes Scholar to Oxford (philosophy, politics, and economics.) He also punched his ticket with military service as a Navy ensign tasked with handling military intelligence. Although he appears to be a mild-mannered doofus, he is a perilous threat to our way of life.

Bottom line…

Simply put, Democrats can’t be trusted with our Constitution, our freedom, our national safety and security, or our culture.

We are majorly screwed.

DEREK CHAUVIN: POLITICAL PRISONER OF THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS

Sentencing former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to 22+ years in prison for the in-custody death of George Floyd is an outrage and an egregious miscarriage of justice. This was a mob-driven political prosecution and Chauvin is a political prisoner.

chauvin

(1)  The case was tainted by a significant abuse of judicial discretion, prosecutorial and jury misconduct. There is no doubt in my mind that Chauvin was deprived of his constitutional right to a fair trial and reversible errors will be addressed in an appeal.

(2)  The prosecution’s case was based on a lie – that Chauvin kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck for more than 9-minutes and George Floyd died of asphyxia even though Floyd had ingested a fatal level of Fentanyl and had significant underlying medical conditions. There were no signs of asphyxia and a video shot from another angle revealed that Chauvin’s knee was not on Floyd’s neck.

(3)  In many ways, Chauvin’s sentence is worse than that given to a murderer as he must be kept segregated from the general population for his own protection.

(4)  There is no doubt in my mind that this was a political prosecution – not to seek justice, but to quell the ongoing street riots and national publicity.

(5)  I am dismayed that the police were quick to condemn Chauvin and did not offer him more support.

(6)  That the City would pay the Floyd family $27 million prior to the trial for the life of a drug-addled thug is egregious and demonstrates the political nature of the prosecution.

(7)  That the Department of Justice is prosecuting Chauvin for the same crime is a further egregious and political act.

(8)  That Minnesota sentencing guideline’s called for 12-1/2 years due to Chauvin’s lack of a criminal record, but Judge Cahill agreed with prosecutors that there were alleged aggravating circumstances that could justify a 10-year enhancement. 

Bottom line…

I can’t even begin to imagine under what circumstances a police officer would want to risk his life, his family, and future by attempting to uphold the law when the possibility of an on-scene decision could have life-altering consequences. But that is what the progressive communist democrats want -- to bring about a breakdown of law and order that would serve as a precursor to a race war leading to a revolution.

Pray for Chauvin. As the democrats say, the process is punishment enough. Chauvin's attorney can file an appeal for a new trial with the Minnesota Court of Appeals after 90 days from the imposition of his sentence.

We are so screwed.

BRANDEIS UNIVERSITY: THE HATE IS THE SAME, ONLY THE WORDS ARE CHANGING

There comes a time when serious people need to stand up and call bullshit!

bu-hdr

Brandeis University is a private non-sectarian coeducational university founded in 1948 and located in Waltham, Massachusetts. The university is named after Louis Brandeis, the first Jewish Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and is widely supported by the Jewish community, which traditionally leans towards socialism.

One might think that the most fundamental tenets of any university would be academic freedom, free speech, and open discussions with no taboos or restrictions. Apparently not at Brandeis, where the oh-so politically correct behavior mavens have put together rather nonsensical language guidelines.

Oppressive Language List

PARC [Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center] recognizes that language is a powerful tool that can be used to perpetrate and perpetuate oppression. As a community, we can strive to remove language that may hurt those who have experienced violence from our everyday use. These recommendations for more neutral language are brought forth by students who have been subject to violence or who have worked with others who are healing from violence, as well as students who have sought out advanced training for intervening in potentially violent situations.

[OCS: Let us not forget that real oppressors, like socialists, Marxists, and communists, have a vested interest in perverting definitions and language to the point where words mean only what the state means at the moment they are used. A perversion that so alters our language that those with legitimate grievances cannot explain their complaint in a coherent and understandable format.]

Currently, we have our list sorted into five main categories:

  • VIOLENT LANGUAGE -- Violent language in this list may be explicitly or implicitly violent expressions and metaphors that are used casually and unintentionally. These examples can be easily replaced by saying something more direct.
  • IDENTITY-BASED LANGUAGE - Identity-based oppressive language includes a range of word and phrases including slurs, unhelpful euphamisms, and exclusionary words and phrases. Important to note- the appropriateness of some identity-based language varies between insiders and outsiders of a group. Words that may be offensive for an outsider to say might be acceptably used by a member of that group. If you aren't sure if you should say a word or phrase someone has used to describe themself or their community, ask or do research to learn more. [OCS: One might think that they knew how to spell euphemisms. Or that the correct usage is “themselves.”] 
  • LANGUAGE THAT DOESN'T SAY WHAT WE MEAN - Language that doesn't say what we mean can often serve to avoid directly addressing what we really need to say. Using euphemisms, vagueness, and inaccurate words can get in the way of meaningful dialogue; PARC encourages you to be transparent around what you mean.  
  • CULTURALLY APPROPRIATIVE LANGUAGE -- Culturally appropriative language misuses words and phrases that hold meaning in a particular culture by using them without context, appreciation, and/or respect.
  • PERSON-FIRST ALTERNATIVES -- Person-first language frames people’s activities, attributes, and more as a part of the person rather than the whole person. Person-first language helps us resist defining people by just one thing about them. It is important to note that some people claim these identities and labels, in which case we suggest mirroring their language.

Consider the matter of “violent language.”

Some of the more questionable items…

opl-hdr

I have always associated “Y’all” with the racist South where the Southern Democrats were the party of slavery, segregation, oppression, Jim Crow, the KKK, and the fight against civil rights legislation. As for the word “folx,” this is simply a bastardization of the English language to promote non-productive political correctness. Most language involves suffixes denoting masculine and feminine forms, so are we to revise all traditional language to satisfy the whims of fools?

l-2

These are phrases rooted in cultural shorthand, and only those in the grievance industry might assign alternative meanings and intentions to allow them to object. Personally, I associate “No can do” with the character Louis Winthorpe played by Dan Aykroyd in Trading Places.

t-1

I wonder what the historians at Brandeis think when they encounter the Twelve Tribes of Israel? The idea that the word “tribe” was historically used in a dehumanizing way is ludicrous, especially since most of the world is based on the tribal nature of humans.

How much does this nonsense cost per year?

tu-hdr

There was a time when academic freedom and free speech, even anti-Semitic speech, was tolerated on the Brandeis campus…

In 2014 --  there was a virulently anti-Israel internal listserv that shows a group of professors lashing out at the Jewish state in bizarre terms and attacking Brandeis’ Jewish leadership. At that time, Ellen de Graffenreid, the university’s senior vice president for communications, was quoted as saying, "Brandeis University—like our peer institutions—upholds the principles of free speech and academic freedom for our students and faculty, which means that members of the community may hold many different opinions on a variety of topics and express them in ways that do not reflect the university's official position on a given issue."

Inside Brandeis’s Anti-Israel Listserv (2014)

During one 2009 discussion about "Israel and our organs"—which focuses on a blood libel accusing Israelis of harvesting organs—politics Professor Donald Hindley refers to the "Reinharz’ shetl" and offers to send fellow listserv members a picture of his penis.

"As an inhabitant of the not-yet-history Reinharz’ shetl, there remain important questions [about the organ harvesting], at least for me an an [sic] immigrant with his manhood still unmutilated [sic] [photos if desired]," Hindley writes.

Hindley then launches into a bizarre rant about his organs possibly being stolen by Jews if he dies in "Occupied Palestine (aka Israel) " and refers to a "Brandeis fuhrer and frau."

"Am I now assured that should I die (targeted assassination? overly energetic "interrogation;" nod and wink of the "l'université c'est moi" Brandeis führer und frau faithfully implemented by His administrative academic appointees ?) in Occupied Palestine (aka Israel) my organs (all of them? some still feel even at my advanced age more personal and "me") will be taken – and if not of use to His People, re-cycled as (non-Kosher, I hope, but money doth corrupt us all, as witness the Jewish Orthodox occupiers of Palestinian territory) sausages – frankfurters – weenies – erstwhile hot dogs?"

In a strange 2010 missive again lashing out at Reinharz and his wife, Hindley refers to "schwarzes," a derogatory Yiddish term for black people, and appears to take issue with U.S. taxpayer support for Israel.

What's with these Chicago schwarzes (and Israelist) parochials?  – NEVER missed a greeting on time to Israeli recipients of our nose-reared billions upon billions from the stretched American taxpayer – but what of the apparently decent monarchs  in Lichtenstein (there is a question here), Denmark, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Lesotho and Swaziland?  Swaziland is an especial problem, Tens of wives and innumerable half-royal brats . . .  and not serial wives as in civilized societies.

At least the incumbent Brandeis Royal Couple appears to be cutting and running with their a fabulous Brandeis  cache – and NOT angling (that I know of) that their first born retain control of The Trough.

Hindley again engages in anti-Semitic rhetoric when describing the Reinharz family in another 2010 missive to the listserv that includes an email from the far left Middle East advocacy group B’tselem, which Hindley refers to as "NOT Reinharz Jews."

Shulamit [Reinharz’s wife] and Jehuda were incapable (money; ideology?) of offering a Brandeis degree and podium to any of such humanly decent (a.k.a. to Israelists as self-hating, Arab-loving Jews) Israelis or American Zionists. Instead, we got moral mierda. Says a lot about Mein Leader und Frau and their financiers and courtiers. <Source>

 Longtime Leftwing Activist Professor Leaves Brandeis: ‘I Just Could Not Tolerate Anymore’ Conservatism (2015)

A politics professor associated with leftwing activism and anti-Semitic views at Brandeis University will no longer teach at the school following a one-year terminal sabbatical.

According to The Justice, Brandeis’s student newspaper, Professor Donald Hindley will end his 52-year controversial tenure at the university, supposedly because he believed his department had grown “far more conservative,” with “far fewer…let me call them activist, liberal-minded people.”

“I just could not tolerate anymore,” Hindley said. “It just wasn’t worth tolerating anymore what the place was becoming under Lawrence.”

Hindley referred to Brandeis University president Frederick Lawrence who, last July, responded to comments about leaked faculty emails from the restricted “Concerned Listserv,” in which Hindley participated.

Daniel Mael, a Brandeis student journalist, reported at Breitbart News last summer “newly uncovered emails distributed to an official university faculty listserv, comprised of a number of well-known Brandeis professors, show the narrow agenda of the professoriate.”

Mael continued:

That agenda was on full display when 87 professors signed onto a petition protesting the honorary degree slated for women’s rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali. “We cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples,” the petition stated.

Mael reported that the “Concerned Listserv,” launched in 2002, began “out of concern about possible war with Iraq,” but its subscribers criticized United States policy on issues such as the “American system,” and “the Israelists.”

Dissent was not tolerated on the “Concerned Listserv,” as Mael reported list creator Gordon Fellman explained in 2009, “It is rude to post a recipe for pork roast on a vegetarian listserv or an orthodox Jewish one, or right wing harangues on the concerned list.” <Source>

Bottom line…

Today, the anti-Semitism is couched in terms of public policy debate, and the enemy are the conservatives. Activists are pretty much the same as typified by this editorial in the "Brandeis Hoot" …

Manufactured outrage and myths of cancel culture (March, 2021)

If you are unlucky enough to be like me and have swaths of people you vaguely knew in high school sharing propaganda on Facebook, you likely have seen the outrage regarding Dr. Seuss’ “cancelation” and “Mx. Potatohead” recently. To any sane person, this seems unimportant. Decisions made by private companies and estates are not anything that the public should care about unless it genuinely affects their lives. I doubt the pulling of a few books with questionable and racist imagery and the combination of Mr. and Mrs. Potatohead into one product that probably isn’t very popular amongst children anyways has hurt anyone.

But conservatives are crying “cancel culture” as usual. It confuses me how certain conservative platforms are all for the free exercise and speech of private corporations when it comes to religion or anything right-wing, but these few events are considered legendary insults on American values. In landmark cases such as Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Citizens United v. The FEC, corporate personhood is important and valued by the right. These cases significantly affected legislation in the United States, and Dr. Seuss’ racist books mean nothing in comparison. Another recent example of corporate personhood is the firing of Gina Carano from the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.” If private corporations have all the same rights as individuals, their freedom of speech and association is important too. Therefore the firing of Gina Carano not only helped Disney adequately portray their idea of what is right but also does not hinder her from continuing to spout her nonsense as well. It has been said over and over and over, but I will reiterate: freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.

This manufactured outrage from the right is almost laughable, if it wasn’t so grossly misguided. Cancel culture can be seen as a good thing, as it promotes active anti-racism in America. Although I agree it can be problematic at times, the general purpose of it is positive and those who fail to see that need to learn that the world will keep moving forward without them. [OCS:

The right’s weaponization of the term “cancel culture” is once again another attempt at making progressive actions seem like a violent attack on American ideals. Which, for one, is ridiculous because what are these “American ideals” if not racism itself?

I’d like to argue that cancel culture is simply the work of the important marketplace of ideas that democracy rests upon. This is integral to the discourse in our society, and, of course, the input of the right is important too. How many conservative voices are acting now in the wake of these non-issues just makes them look like the real snowflakes. <Source>

The more things appear to change, the more they stay the same. The only difference is the words and definitions being manufactured and used by the progressive communist democrats.

We are so screwed.

THE NEW YORK STATE BAR ASSOCIATION SH*TS THEIR BED

The truth is the NYSBA is a lobbying group with zero legal power…

ATTORNEY SEARCH & VERIFICATION / CERTIFICATES OF GOOD STANDING

Q: Can the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) verify whether or not an attorney is a member of the New York Bar in good standing?

A: No. The NYSBA is not the official New York Bar and is not responsible for attorney licenses or registration. Please contact the NYS Office of Court Administration (OCA), the official licensing/registration unit: 212.428.2800, NYCourts.gov <Source>

In what reads like a progressive communist democrat anti-Trump screed, the New York State Bar Association proves, once again, it is a collection of liberal asses who care little or nothing for the law…

New York State Bar Association Launches Historic Inquiry Into Removing Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani From Its Membership

The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) strongly condemned the violent uprising that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, orchestrated by individuals bent on subverting the will of the voters by disrupting the certification of the 2020 presidential election results.

[OCS: I wonder what they think about the violent uprising in Portland that saw a federal courthouse attacked with firebombs and federal officers assaulted with projectiles, explosives, and lasers, and injured.]

Thankfully, Congress overcame this assault and fulfilled its constitutional responsibility in certifying the Biden-Harris victory. However, we must address the root cause of this abhorrent incident, the blame for which lies first and foremost with President Donald Trump.

But the president did not act alone. Hours before the angry mob stormed the Capitol walls, Trump’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani, addressed a crowd of thousands at the White House, reiterating baseless claims of widespread election fraud in the presidential election and the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs.

[OCS: Assumes facts not in evidence as there are demonstrable instances of election fraud from California to New York that are still to be investigated. What is not known is whether the cumulative effects of these voter irregularities can overcome the thin vote margin that was used to certify state elections and send electors to vote.]

“If we’re wrong, we will be made fools of, but if we’re right a lot of them will go to jail,” Mr. Giuliani said. “Let’s have trial by combat.”

NYSBA has received hundreds of complaints in recent months about Mr. Giuliani and his baseless efforts on behalf of President Trump to cast doubt on the veracity of the 2020 presidential election and, after the votes were cast, to overturn its legitimate results.

[OCS: Imagine that, a lawyer advocating for his client’s position. Without an evidentiary hearing in a court of competent jurisdiction, those that filed complaints and those members of the NYSBA who authorized this investigation have no valid basis for claiming that Giuliani’s efforts were baseless.]

As widely reported, these efforts included the commencement and prosecution of court actions in multiple states without any evidentiary basis whatsoever. In each and every instance, these actions were appropriately dismissed by the courts in which they were brought.

[OCS:  I read a number of these lawsuits, and they were accompanied by “evidence” consisting of affidavits and declarations that were executed under the penalty of perjury. I seem to remember that there were no evidentiary hearings, and the lawsuits were dismissed on procedural grounds such as time bars and a lack of standing.] 

As the nation’s largest voluntary state bar association, NYSBA has a responsibility to defend and protect the rule of law.

[OCS: This is not true. The Bar Association was formed to lobby on behalf of its membership and to improve their horrible public image. Had the NYSBA been required to actually defend and protect the rule of law, they would have intervened in a number of matters involving unconstitutional activities that have occurred in the State of New York.]

Based on these complaints, and the statement Mr. Giuliani uttered shortly before the attack on the Capitol, NYSBA President Scott M. Karson has launched an inquiry pursuant to the Association’s bylaws to determine whether Mr. Giuliani should be removed from the membership rolls of the Association.

[OCS: One wonders if Giuliani has a cause of action for defamation against the complainants, jointly and severally, should widespread election fraud be discovered?]

NYSBA’s bylaws state that “no person who advocates the overthrow of the government of the United States, or of any state, territory or possession thereof, or of any political subdivision therein, by force or other illegal means, shall be a member of the Association.”

[OCS: This is patently ridiculous as Giuliani did not advocate for the overthrow of the government – only the application of constitutional provisions that would lead to a fair and honest election. Even worse, the NYSBA would need to investigate a number of New York attorneys who support Marxist and communist causes that do advocate for the overthrow of the government. Notice that the NYSBA left out the word “violent” as in the “violent overthrow of the government?”

Mr. Giuliani’s words quite clearly were intended to encourage Trump supporters unhappy with the election’s outcome to take matters into their own hands. Their subsequent attack on the Capitol was nothing short of an attempted coup, intended to prevent the peaceful transition of power.

[OCS: This is pure and unadulterated bullshit. Nobody was armed. Nobody was seeking to take over the government in a “coup.” Most were lookie-loos seeking selfies and souvenirs. And the NYSBA cannot read minds. Did the NYSBA overlook the presence of trained agitators dressed in MAGA gear?]

Mr. Giuliani will be provided due process and have an opportunity – should he so choose – to explain and defend his words and actions.

[OCS: The NYSBA is not a court of law, and Giuliani would be well within his rights to sue the Bar Association for defamation and make them defend their assertions in a court of law. Calling every complainant, by name, as a fact witness to the actions they allege.]

This decision is historic for NYSBA, and we have not made it lightly. We cannot stand idly by and allow those intent on rending the fabric of our democracy to go unchecked.

Bigger troubles...

The New York Supreme Court suspended former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s law license for making what it described as false statements following the Nov. 3 election.

The court ruled on June 24 (pdf) that Giuliani made “false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers, and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign.”

We will have to see Guiliani's defense and it most likely will contain audit data from Maricopa County, Arizona, and Fulton County, Georgia. A bigger issue may be the pending Dominion lawsuit that is now awaiting a judicial opinion to proceed. 

Bottom line…

Clowns beclowning themselves. The NYSBA is a voluntary group – perhaps Giuliani should buy himself a drink and a good cigar as he laughs at these buffoons. Both the Supreme Court finding and the Dominion lawsuits are infinitely more serious.

HOW DEEPLY HAVE THE CHINESE COMMUNISTS INFILTRATED THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. MEDIA, AND BIG TECHNOLOGY?

For those following the cable news, podcasts, and blogs, it appears that one of the highest-ranking Communist Chinese intelligence chiefs is said to have defected to the United States along with his daughter.

Which raises several troubling questions.

(1)  If the alleged defector, Dong Jingwei, the vice minister of China’s Ministry of State Security, did not defect to the United States, why is the communist Chinese claiming he has given a seminar in China and failed to provide contemporaneous photos or video? 

(2)  If the alleged defector, Dong Jingwei, did defect to the United States, why did this man, with tremendous insight into American intelligence and law enforcement agencies, reportedly defect to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) rather than the more traditional Central Intelligence Agency or Federal Bureau of Investigation? Both agencies demonstrably tainted with the stink of progressive democrat politics at their highest levels. And why is it being reported that the DIA did not invite its sister agencies under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to participate in the debriefing?

(3)  Why is the New York Times, which bills itself as the nation’s newspaper of record and sees no problem publishing anonymously sourced intelligence and law enforcement leaks harmful to the U.S. government, strangely silent. As are many of the other progressive mainstream media outlets?

nyt-1

(4)  Are the big tech oligarchs, with significant business with both the United States and Chinese governments going to suppress or censor any revelations as conspiracy theories, disinformation, or misinformation as they have done with most stories on the source of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) pandemic and effective low-cost medical treatments?

(5)  Will self-serving goofballs like Attorney Sidney Powell, L. Lin Wood, Gen. Michael Flynn, Gen. McInerney, and others capitalize on this story by claiming that some government official sold the intelligence tool known as “Hammer and Scorecard,” which may have been involved in the stealing of the 2020 presidential election? Surrounding any real revelations with the air of a “conspiracy theory.”

(6)  If the reported “Chinese spy catcher,” Dong Jingwei, did defect with terabytes of data, said to include data on the People’s Liberation Army’s bioweapons work at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a list of Chinese spies and other American cooperators – including the Bidens and others in the government – is there anyone in the Biden Administration honest and courageous enough to investigate and prosecute evildoers, both foreign and domestic? Or will Jingwei suffer a fatal heart attack or disappear back into China?

(7)  Are we seeing America under attack (World War III) with bioweapons, cyberweapons, and major legal/media propaganda?

Bottom line…

The stakes could not be higher. If the Chinese created and deliberately released the virus, it would be an act of war and a crime against humanity. If a foreign sovereign nation compromised our political leaders, that would be a national security threat demanding the ultimate death penalty sanctions for treason. Likely, some in the top GOP leadership are similarly compromised, especially those with major profitable investments in China.

It is unlikely that we will ever know the full story. Perhaps the very reason that the Democrats were forced to mount an unprecedented attack on Donald Trump – lest he discovers the truth and tell the American public in a Tweet?

To say that we are screwed is an understatement.

Reference -- For one of the best "infographics" on Communist Chinese Warfare -- 

Cwi

[OCS: Along with conventional kinetic action, chemical, biological, radiological, and cyberwarfare, the Communist Party speaks of the “three warfares.]

Context: The “Three Warfares”

Chinese writings often refer to the “three warfares” (san zhan): public opinion warfare, psychological warfare, and legal warfare. Chinese analyses almost always link the three together, as they are seen as interrelated and mutually reinforcing.

  1. Public opinion/media warfare is the struggle to gain dominance over the venue for implementing psychological and legal warfare. It is seen as a stand-alone form of warfare or conflict, as it may occur independent of whether there is an actual outbreak of hostilities. Indeed, it is perhaps best seen as a constant, ongoing activity, aimed at long-term influence of perceptions and attitudes. One of the main tools of public opinion/media warfare is the news media, including both domestic and foreign entities. The focus of public opinion/media warfare is not limited to the press, however; it involves all of the instruments that inform and influence public opinion (e.g., movies, television programs, and books). [OCS: Including social media platforms.]
  2. Psychological warfare provides the underpinning for both public opinion/media warfare and legal warfare. With regard to the PLA, psychological warfare involves disrupting the enemy’s decision-making capacity by sapping their will, arousing anti-war sentiments (and therefore eroding the perception of popular support), and causing an opponent to second-guess himself—all while defending against an opponent’s attempts to conduct similar operations. [OCS: Think astroturfed street riots.]
  3. Legal warfare is one of the key instruments of psychological and public opinion/media warfare. It raises doubts among adversary and neutral military and civilian authorities, as well as the broader population, about the legality of adversary actions, thereby diminishing political will and support—and potentially retarding military activity. It also provides material for public opinion/media warfare. Legal warfare does not occur on its own; rather, it is part of the larger military or public opinion/media warfare campaign. [OCS: Using our own laws against us.]

PROOF: THE PROGRESSIVE RACISTS IN HOLLYWOOD ARE BAT SH*T CRAZY

For those film buffs that remember black exploitation film projects, the depravity and degeneracy of the Hollywood fringe should not be surprising…

When the progressive communist democrats are trying to divide America by race and use the resulting race war to assume authoritarian power, what film could be more “woke” and relevant than one based on false and misleading racial stereotypes?

Consider this offering, capitalizing on the “Karen” meme and pretending to be a suspense thriller about a Southern white woman who terrorizes her Black neighbors. Coke Daniels, the writer-director, believes he has created a social commentary with a powerful message. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, the real message is that I am a race-hustler and seeking to exploit race for progressive prestige and profits. 

What can be more racist and divisive than a film targeted at a black audience that features an entitled white woman from the South, Black neighbors who support the communist front group Black Lives Matter and racist police officers?

See for yourself an example of racist awfulness…

 

If the video does not display, it can be found here.

Malik and Imani are a young couple who move into a new house in the suburbs. When they arrive, they are greeted by a seemingly friendly neighbor named Karen White. However, this façade slowly reveals a bitter, angry, and racist woman who wants to remove the couple at any cost.

Bottom line…

More black people are oppressed and victimized by white racists brought to you by BET (Black Exploitation Television).

Truth be told, this movie is more than a racist reinforcement of stereotypes; it is a critical insight into the minds of progressive communist Democrats who have no problem exploiting race and the misery it creates with their progressive public policies for profit.

As for the filmmakers, congrats, you got it financed, produced, and in the can. Derivative and cringeworthy as a parody of a horror film. At least it is a production credit leading to your next project.

For those race-baiters seeking to exploit the project, great! More publicity and revelation into your true racist nature.

We are so screwed.

GEORGIA ELECTION AUDITS: WHAT ARE THE DEMOCRATS AFRAID OF?

rat

Remember when former President Obama loudly proclaimed that "This is the most transparent administration in history" in a Google+ hangout? Of course, it was a bald-faced lie as his administration was about secrecy, duplicity, and a record of corruption and criminality. Emblematic of a progressive communist democrat.

As we have learned, Obama’s cadre of minions carried on their stealthy attack on the United States into the Trump Administration and now into the Biden administration.

Corruption mirrored at the Democratic National Committee, infiltrated by Pakistani foreign nationals with the keys to the DNC treasure trove of documents. We still do not know what a Pakistani national left on a laptop that DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz thought so important that she threatened the Capitol Police over its examination. We still do not know what Special Counsel John Durham is doing, although it is well known that there was a well-coordinated attack on then-candidate Donald Trump based on a concocted uncorroborated piece of opposition research paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC.

And the dirty tricks apparently are proceeding at full speed, through the suspicious 2020 presidential election toward the 2022 mid-term elections. This is far beyond actions that can be explained away by incompetence, randomness, or simply human error. Not only were there unconstitutional changes to election laws that resulted in illegal behavior during the election, but we found that we were faced with an improbability; that all of the errors fell one way, towards the Democrats and Joe Biden.

To believe that a person who rarely campaigned and could not draw crowds more than a few hundred individuals, mostly staffers, media, and rent-a-bodies, could garner significantly more votes than Barack Obama stretches one’s credulity.

So why are the Democrats fighting so hard against election audits, the one process that can prove the Democrat's assertions of a clean, fair election beyond any reasonable doubt?

Georgia’s peach appears rotten from the inside out…

According to Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, “We had safe, secure, honest elections; and the results are disappointing if you are a Republican, but those are the results.”

So why are the Georgia State and County election officials fighting like the devil to hide information? Using high-priced attorneys affiliated with Democrat causes to pursue a course of denial and delay in the courts?

Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero has now heard motions to dismiss a high-profile examination of absentee ballots and is taking the case under advisement. It is unknown when he will render his decision that will allow the ballot examination to start or kill it until the next round of lawsuits.

The original petition alleges that the petitioners, under penalty of perjury, witnessed certain election events and believe mail-in ballots may have been spurious or were improperly processed. Accordingly, they ask the court to grant “immediate access to all mail-in paper ballots from the November 3, 2020, General Election for visual inspection” and allow high-resolution scanning to allow further technical inspection and validation.

It appears that Brad Raffensperger was hoist on his own petard. Raffensperger commissioned an independent election monitor to observe the election proceedings and report back to his office. However, in a recently released 29-page report from Seven Hills Strategies, a Georgia consultancy, there were serious election integrity problems that could have affected the vote tabulation results in Fulton County.

Raffensperger, responding to the monitor’s report, noted, "It is no secret that Fulton has had issues in their elections department for decades, which is why I insisted on a state monitor being present to be eyes and ears on the ground, He did not see any evidence of fraud despite having full access, but he saw continued mismanagement, miscommunication, unpreparedness, and sloppiness. Georgia voters deserve better."

In a closely contested election, one might expect that errors involving “mismanagement, miscommunication, unpreparedness, and sloppiness” would impact candidates much in the same narrow-margin manner. Instead, however, almost every problematic instance benefited the Democrat candidate, Joe Biden.

After the first results of the election, Georgia's 159 counties conducted a full hand-count risk-limiting audit: a post-election audit that is designed to determine if the correct winner won, not verify the precise margin. Typically, an RLA would use a smaller, statistically significant random sampling of ballots that are hand counted and compared to the results. But because the margin in the presidential contest was narrow and attention was so high, the state ordered all the ballots to be hand counted.

According to Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, the results of the risk limiting audit affirmed the election results.

“Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results. This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time.”

“Audit Outcome -- The audit confirmed the original result of the election, namely that Joe Biden won the Presidential Contest in the State of Georgia. Like any risk-limiting audit, this audit does not confirm or correct the exact margin of victory. It only provides sufficient evidence that the correct winner was reported.” <Source>

If this is true, what are they afraid of, or more likely, what are they hiding?

Against the fact that Biden was declared the winner in Georgia by a scant 11,779 votes, any scrutiny of the approximately 147,000 absentee votes and their supporting documentation in Fulton County has the potential of proving that Raffensperger’s certification of the vote was premature and erroneous.

A reward for material dishonesty?

Audio shows the media got the Trump-Georgia story all wrong

In January, the Washington Post scored a humdinger of a “scoop.” Then-President Donald Trump, still reeling from the results of the 2020 election, “urged Georgia’s lead elections investigator to ‘find the fraud’ in a lengthy December phone call, saying that the official would be a ‘national hero,’” the Washington Post reported, citing a single anonymous source who supposedly “confirmed” the details of the private conversation.

But recently released audio of the phone call shows Trump never said these things. He never urged the investigations chief to “find the fraud” in Georgia’s presidential election results. He never promised the investigator would be a “national hero.”

In a follow-up report published this week, the Washington Post revealed that Jordan Fuchs, the deputy secretary of state, was its anonymous source for its January report on Trump’s phone call with the investigations official. <Source>

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger appointed Deputy Secretary Jordan Fuchs to serve on the Board of Directors for the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). Fuchs will serve as Georgia’s national representative within the organization’s governing body.

“Our office has led the charge to reform Georgia’s elections with common-sense solutions that prioritize efficiency and promote integrity - and our immediate action to join ERIC was a major victory for all of Georgia’s voters,” said Fuchs. “I am honored to represent our state at the national level as we continue to aggressively pursue solutions that ensure a better experience at the polls for our voters and election officials alike.”

ERIC is a multistate partnership that uses a sophisticated and secure data-matching tool to improve the accuracy and efficiency of state voter registration systems. Through ERIC, states share voter registration information to improve the integrity of voter lists. The national non-profit uses cross-state data matches to flag voters who may have registered in multiple states, moved out of state, or passed away – alerting election officials so that they can update voter rolls accordingly, consistent with federal and state law.

“I have no doubt that Deputy Secretary Fuchs will continue to advance the best interest of our state and work with national stakeholders and industry leaders to make elections more secure, accurate, and accessible for every Georgia voter,” said Secretary Raffensperger. <Source>

Sounds innocent enough until you learn…

State Jordan Fuchs, Who Lied About Trump Phone Call, On Board Of Leftist Non-Profit Founded By Attorney Who Created Entity That Took $50M From Zuckerberg

Georgia Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs, who occupies an official position under Brad Raffensperger created specifically for her, sits on the board of a non-profit created by attorney David Becker while working for Pew Charitable Trust — the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).

Becker also created the Center for Election Integrity and Research, which reportedly took $50 million in ‘Zuckerbucks’, part of the over $400 million Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg injected into the 2020 U.S. general election cycle. <Source>

Bottom line…

They work for us, make them prove their claims, or kick them to the curb.

We are so screwed.

COVID-19: SPIES AND LIES, WHAT NOW?

CORONAVIRUS-RAHM

I am beginning to wonder if Americans have grown so accustomed to the lies told by President Biden, his cadre of Obama supporters in the administration, the mainstream media, and the censorship of the social media platforms that we are not only losing our sense of outrage at the apparent corruption and compromise of our leadership, but our sense of danger that informs our public policies, both foreign and domestic?

If it is true that COVID-19 was not as deadly as originally thought and it is possible that the Communist Chinese deliberately released the virus to test America's response to a biological threat; including our nation’s response to the originating nation, how the American people will respond to government directives, the status of our stockpile of personal protective equipment and their distribution logistics, and which government officials can be compromised, what do we do with that information? More importantly, how do we deal with a weak or compromised leadership which fails to take action?

How do we respond to individuals who may have authorized or participated in the U.S. government funding of the dual-use medical/military virus research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology knowing it was controlled by the Communist Chinese military? Funding of the “gain of function” research that likely led to the creation of SARS-CoV-2? What do we do with specific individuals like NIAID’S Dr. Anthony Fauci and EcoHealth Alliance’s Peter Daszak, who have appeared to cover up the government’s funding activities or presented false and misleading information to the public?

It’s one thing to expect politicians to lie, but when our hyper-politicized intelligence, law enforcement, and State Department put forth a political narrative filled with disinformation or employ foreign assets/spies, our nation’s national security and future are at stake.

Consider the matter of the alleged defection of Dong Jingwei, said to be the vice minister of China’s Ministry of State Security (MSS) and the highest-level defector to date.

Why was his story immediately attacked and discredited by some mainstream media, including anonymous leaks from “high-ranking” government officials?

Could it be that among the terabytes of data he allegedly supplied to the Defense Intelligence Agency was information relating to the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, including President Joe Biden’s participation in Hunter’s business affairs?

Could it be that the information he provided contradicted the “official” government narrative and the storylines published by the mainstream media propagandists?

"Dong also has provided DIA with copies of the contents of the hard drive on Hunter Biden's laptop, showing the information the Chinese government has about Hunter's pornography problem and about his (and Joe's) business dealings with Chinese entities."

In addition, Dong has provided DIA with the following information:

    • Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2
    • Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world
    • Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research
    • Names of US citizens who provide intel to China
    • Names of Chinese spies working in the US or attending US universities
    • Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government
    • Details of meetings US government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR
    • How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA

<Source>

One of the bigger stories we’ve broken is an exclusive regarding a high-ranking Chinese defector who’s been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for more than three months. The DIA has high confidence in the information this defector has provided thus far, as it’s been able to be independently verified using non-public sources. What’s particularly troubling – and very significant – is that the DIA kept the CIA, FBI, and State Department in the dark about the fact that they were working with this defector, because they believed there were foreign assets/spies working throughout those agencies. <Source>

Is this not an indictment of the CIA, FBI, and State Department that demands immediate investigation and the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Bottom line…

What should the appropriate government response be, short of a nuclear war?  And worst of all, will a weak, anti-America government have the guts to respond and to demand reparations?

The refusal of our government to identify China as an enemy and to take action against the thousands of spies in our nation’s universities and industries leaves us open to further attack.

How is the American public expected to maintain any confidence in a President who routinely lies about anything that comes to his addled mind?

Whether it is domestic or foreign affairs, Americans have been at a loss to expect the mainstream media to address the government’s blatant lies because they would have to abandon the protection they have afforded the progressive communist democrats since Obama.

I expect our enemies to lie. Americans should not expect our government to do so in such a routine and obscene fashion.

There is no lack of intellectual or practical understanding of what needs to be done. Still, it seems our country’s leadership is unwilling to do it – and it interferes with the electorate’s right to select different leadership. 

We are so screwed.

RACIALIZING COUNTRY MUSIC?

The race-baiters and agitators are at it again. This time they are suggesting that country music is inherently racist and reflective of a white racist society.

mickey-guyton

What the race-hustlers don’t seem to understand is that songs like Mickey Guyton’s "Black Like Me" or "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?" are simply part of the ethos of country music, a guiding belief in freedom, the God-given right to feel the way you feel and to describe that emotional impact within a song. An anthem to the “live and let live crowd.” 

Country music’s roots lie in its story-telling powers within the ballads, folk songs, and popular songs of the English, Scots, and Irish settlers of the Appalachians and other parts of the South. Songs of hardship and oppression are nothing new and to find themes of the blues or other genres embedded in country music is not unusual.

What is the woke communist commentariat trying to say?

Mickey Guyton Takes On the Overwhelming Whiteness of Country Music
The “Black Like Me” singer was always told she didn’t fit the genre, so she made it her own.

In early June, 2020, a week after the murder of George Floyd, the country singer Mickey Guyton released “Black Like Me,” a tender piano ballad about deep and relentless racial alienation.

[OCS: Country music has always been about joy, pathos, protest, and conflict. The key to success is to evoke emotion in the listener and motivate them to support the genre, artist, and music. The subject matter is not as important as the emotion it evokes.]

Her voice is velvety and propulsive, and when she leans into a big note it can feel cool and bracing, like sticking your head out the window of a moving car.

She wrote “Black Like Me” in 2019. “The common response from people in Nashville was ‘I need to sit with this for a minute,’ ” Guyton, who is thirty-seven, told me recently. “It made people uncomfortable. Nobody was really writing songs like that in the country format.”

[OCS: To any songwriter or performer/songwriter artist, this attitude is not uncommon in an industry where hundreds of people pitch what they believe is the next bestseller to record executives.

Those in A&R (Artists and Repertoire) who act as talent scouts, plan the development of the artist, the commercialization of their ability and songs, and act as a liaison between the artist and the record label, are to some degree putting their reputations on the line with each artist and song recommended to the label. They may be somewhat timider if they are less experienced or have not generated a sufficient return on the label’s investment.

They take comfort in material that fits neatly into a known profit-making category or appears tailored for a particular artist’s repertoire. Like Hollywood, where the losers greatly outnumber the winners, the same applies to Nashville, where talent must be commercially monetized.]

When Guyton signed with Universal Music Group, in 2011, she was the only Black woman under contract with a major country-music label.

[OCS: What is the author implying. Is the industry racist because the percentage of minority songwriters/performers does not equal the percentage of that minority’s representation in the general population? A call for forced affirmative action like that is being jammed down the throats of the “oh so woke” movie and television industry?]

<Source>

Guyton has a pleasant, if not outstandingly strong or recognizable, country voice. The choice and marketing of her lyrics of victimhood are between herself, her label, and ultimately her audience. She is an easy-listening artist that is perfect for the melodic background music I listen to – without concentrating on the lyrics and meanings. To the extent she allows herself to be manipulated and used by those who hate America, exploit our identities and diversity, and are trying to pitch a false narrative about America and Americans is a shame.

A sample of her performance lyrics…

"Black Like Me" by American country music artist Mickey Guyton. It was released on June 2, 2020, amidst the George Floyd protests.

Little kid in a small town
I did my best just to fit in
Broke my heart on the playground, mm
When they said I was different

Oh now, now I'm all grown up, and nothing has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be black like me

My daddy worked day and night
For an old house and a used car, hm
Just to live that good life, mm
It shouldn't be twice as hard

Oh now, now I'm all grown up and nothing has changed
Yeah, it's still the same

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
If you think we live in the land of the free
You should try to be, oh, black like me

Oh, oh oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, I know I'm not the only one, oh yeah
Who feels like I, I don't belong

It's a hard life on easy street
Just white painted picket fences far as you can see
And if you think we live in the land of the free
Then you should try to be, oh, black like me

Oh, and someday we'll all be free
And I'm proud to be, oh, black like me
And I'm proud to be black like me
Proud to be black like me
Black like me

[OCS: Notice the modest universalism of the lyrics. Remove race and substitute any other minority or even the Appalachian children, and it still makes sense. ]

Guyton wrote “Black Like Me” with Nathan Chapman, Fraser Churchill, and Emma Davidson Dillon, at a writing retreat hosted by Warner Chappell Music.


"What Are You Gonna Tell Her?" by American country music artist Mickey Guyton which was released on March 6, 2020 as the first single from her third EP Bridges.

She thinks life is fair and God hears every prayer
And everyone gets their ever after
She thinks love is love, and if you work hard that's enough
Skin is just skin and it doesn't matter
And that her friends older brother is gonna keep his hands to himself
And that somebody's gonna believe her when she tells

But what are you gonna tell her when she's wrong?
Will you just shrug and say it's been that way all along?
What are you gonna tell her when she figures out
That all this time you built her up just so the world can let her down?
Yeah, what do you tell her, what are you gonna tell her?

Do you just let her pretend that she can be the president?
Would it help us get there any faster?
Do you let her think the deck's not stacked
And gay or straight or white or black
You just dream and anything can happen?

What are you gonna tell her when she's wrong?
Will you just shrug and say it's been that way all along?
What are you gonna tell her when she figures out
That all this time you built her up just so the world can let her down?
Yeah, what do you tell her, what are you gonna tell her?

Do you tell her not to fight?
Is it worth the sacrifice
Can you look her in the face and promise her that things will change?

What are you gonna tell her?
Maybe you can't, 'cause there ain't a way you can explain what you don't understand
What the hell do you tell her?
What the hell do you tell her, oh?
What are you gonna tell her?
What are you gonna tell her?

[OCS: Again, notice the modest universalism of the lyrics.]

Bottom line…

I love country music. I love America. And I  hate those progressive communist democrats attempting to destroy America from within by destroying our Constitution, the rule of law, and our culture.  Do not let anyone racialize country music or the people who enjoy it, especially those trying to pervert country music to support their un-American and overtly racist bullshit.

Give them the big middle finger while singing, “Why baby, why? Cry baby, cry.”

Screw with country and watch middle America rise up and kick your elitist asses to the curb and into the gutter where you belong.

Best wishes to Mickey, her songwriting, and her music career.
