DEMOCRAT DISTRACTION PLAYBOOK...

Have you ever noticed when the progressive communist democrat’s mainstream media propagandists want to distract you from democrat douchebaggery, they re-write the story to discredit their opposition from calling out evil and idiocy?

An example: security for me, but not for thee…

Consider the sheer idiocy and chutzpa of wannabe squad member Representative Cory Bush (D-MO), who recently defended her spending of $70,000 on private security while demanding to defund the police and put that money into social programs.


"And I have too much work to do; there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that.

So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend ten more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work, so suck it up.

And defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”  ~ Cory Bush

Absolutely disgusting when you consider that Bush represents St. Louis, awash in unchecked blood and violence...

"Today's decision to defund the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is historic," Bush said in a statement at the time. "It marks a new future for our city. For decades, our city funneled more and more money into our police department under the guise of public safety, while massively underinvesting in the resources that will truly keep our communities safe."

The idea Cory Bush wants to advance the progressive communist democrat agenda to release criminals into the community, defund the police that are absolutely necessary to protect the community, and wants to disarm law-abiding citizens should be abhorrent to the majority of Americans who want to go about their daily lives unmolested by criminals and crazies.

Politico jumps in to protect Cory Bush and the democrats by flipping the story…

POLITICO Playbook PM: GOP latches on to Cori Bush’s private security spending

HOT ON THE RIGHT: CORI BUSH DEFENDS HER OWN SECURITY FUNDING WHILE BACKING ‘DEFUND THE POLICE’ —

Republicans are salivating over a new interview in which Rep. CORI BUSH (D-Mo.) defended spending $70k on private security for herself as a member of Congress — while also saying Democrats should defund the police.

“I’m going to make sure I have security,” Bush said in a CBSN interview blowing up on Twitter. “I get to be here to do the work, so suck it up — and defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police.”

Our sources tell us that the NRCC has already started weaving Bush’s interview into their attack ads on frontline House Democrats. As part of the effort, they released a new video juxtaposing the rise in crime nationwide with Bush’s comments, which they’ll be blasting out this afternoon. “Vote them out. November 8, 2022,” the video reads at the end.

“We want to thank Cori Bush for reminding everyone [that] Democrats are the party of Defund the Police,” said NRCC spokesman MICHAEL MCADAMS in a statement. “While violent crime ravages communities, Democrats are spending campaign dollars on private security for themselves.”

The attack comes just after Bush’s standout moment: The former Black Lives Matter organizer’s sleep-in on the Capitol steps was widely credited with forcing the Biden administration to extend the eviction moratorium after it expired last weekend. <Source>

[OCS: Not a word about the unconstitutional nature of a lawless interference with private property or defying a Supreme Court finding of its unconstitutional nature. This is another example of the Democrats using the pandemic emergency to nullify the U.S Constitution. Truth be told, this is an impeachable offense and a direct violation of the President’s Oath of Office.]

Bottom line...

We cannot trust Democrats to adhere to our Constitution, the rule of law, or responsibly manage the safety and security of America and all Americans.

We are so screwed.

Apple plans to scan US iPhones for child abuse imagery

Security researchers raise alarm over potential surveillance of personal devices

Apple intends to install software on American iPhones to scan for child abuse imagery, according to people briefed on its plans, raising alarm among security researchers who warn that it could open the door to surveillance of millions of people’s personal devices.

Apple detailed its proposed system — known as “neuralMatch” — to some US academics earlier this week, according to two security researchers briefed on the virtual meeting. The automated system would proactively alert a team of human reviewers if it believes illegal imagery is detected, who would then contact law enforcement if the material can be verified.

The scheme will initially roll out only in the US. Apple confirmed its plans in a blog post, saying the scanning technology is part of a new suite of child protection systems that would “evolve and expand over time.” The features will be rolled out as part of iOS 15, expected to be released next month. <Source>

Bottom line…

Did you purchase your Apple device and provide Apple with permission to view or scan your personal and private photographs and other material? How long will it be before they scan for “subversive” materials that run counter to the government’s narrative?

Should Apple be shielded from the consequences of its actions should someone be investigated, prosecuted, or have their children improperly taken by Child Protective Services based on Apple’s actions? Repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Ask yourself, if the progressive communist democrats argue that gender is a construct and biological sex is meaningless, could they also argue that age is a construct that nullifies the idea of prosecutable pedophilia?   

We are so screwed when big corporations join big government in a fascist alliance.

RICHARD TRUMKA: BETTER DEAD THAN RED

Richard Trumka dies at 72, leaving a legacy of union subversion and communist infiltration…

In my opinion, union thug Richard Trumka did more to sell out his nation, his union, and the union’s membership to the communists than those labor leaders who just supported the Democrat Party. There is little or no doubt in my mind that radical communists have infiltrated the Democrat Party, but that the party also presents a clear and present danger to America and Americans. It is no longer the party of my parents, working Americans, and the soldiers who fought and died to protect this nation, its constitution, and the safety and security of all Americans. It appears to be a communist front group.

Trumka's association with the communists is not a secret, but open to all who take the time and energy to study history…

trumpka-deadIn November 1983 in New York City, Trumka was honored at the annual luncheon of the Labor Research Association, a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) front group.

In 1989 Trumka earned a seat on the AFL-CIO’s executive council.

On May 13, 1991, the Workers Defense League, which was influenced heavily by the Democratic Socialists of America, presented Trumka with its David Clendenin Award.

In 1994, Trumka was honored at the annual Eugene Debs Award Banquet in Terre Haute, Indiana; The award was named after the man who founded the Socialist Party of America and ran for U.S. President five times on the Socialist Party ticket.

In 1995 Trumka was one-third of a troika elected to head the AFL-CIO. His running mates for election were John Sweeney, president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and Linda Chavez-Thompson, who had been executive vice president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).

[OCS: The SEIU was founded by Wade Rathke. a community and labor activist and veteran of the Maoist oriented Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). Rathke also founded the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in 1970.] 

Calling themselves the “New Voice” of the labor movement, this threesome pledged to change the policies of the moderate AFL-CIO leaders who had preceded them. Trumka would go on to serve as the AFL-CIO’s secretary-treasurer from 1995 to September 2009, second-in-command to its president, John Sweeney.

Trumka, Sweeney, and Chavez-Thompson represented a turn away from blue-collar industrial unionism and the AFL-CIO’s traditional emphasis on raising wages and improving working conditions. Rather, they focused on recruiting ever-growing numbers of government workers who would benefit from higher taxes and bigger government, and who therefore would reliably support socialism and America’s pro-big government Democratic Party.

Soon after winning their election in 1995, Trumka and his fellow triumvirs instituted “Union Summer,” an effort “to recruit and train hundreds of young people as organizers and political activists.” The “Union Summer” indoctrination materials endorsed by Trumka use explicitly anti-capitalist, class-warfare rhetoric, instructing young participants to recite a pledge called “Working Class Commitment” that included the Marxist dogma “that we [union workers] produce the world’s wealth … [and] will end all oppression.” Unlike their more moderate predecessors, Trumka and his fellow AFL-CIO bosses saw free-market capitalism not as essential to worker prosperity but as something to be despised and destroyed. Their ultimate aim was not to boost members’ wages, but to radically transform society. Trumka would confirm this in a September 2010 moment of candor, when he stated that he had gotten “into the labor movement not because I wanted to negotiate wages,” but “because I saw it as a vehicle to do massive social change to include lots of people.”

The agenda of Trumka and his fellow “New Voice” leaders was to promote “class-based organizing,” on the theory — as explained by labor economist Michael Yates — that “those unions which mobilize rank-and-file workers around a program of aggressive solidarity and conflict with their employers have the best chance of winning union elections, bargaining good contracts, and resisting decertification.”

Trumka aggressively developed and promoted radical strategies and tactics like those of the 1960s New Left for signing up workers. These measures included the formation of labor alliances with media, government, and radical activists. The objective was to intimidate companies by threatening to inflict a “death of a thousand cuts” via negative-publicity campaigns, harassment of corporate investors, alliances with government regulators, and more.

[Opening the union to declared anti-America, anti-capitalist, communists…]

Trumka, Sweeney and Chavez-Thompson also rescinded a founding AFL-CIO rule that banned Communist Party members and loyalists from leadership positions within the Federation and its unions. Instead, the “New Voice” triumvirate welcomed Communist Party delegates to positions of power in the Federation. This move to open the previously patriotic union to subversives delighted the CPUSA, which declared itself “in complete accord” with the troika’s new AFL-CIO program. “The radical shift in both leadership and policy is a very positive, even historic change,” wrote CPUSA National Chairman Gus Hall in 1996 about the Trumka/Sweeney/Chavez-Thompson takeover.

[OCS: Remember the Cloward-Piven strategy that seeks to destroy capitalism by "overwhelming the resources available by advocating increased enrollment in social welfare programs in order to collapse that system?"

Piven said of the Occupy movement,

  • The Occupy Movement is made up of "All parts of the Left."

  • That includes proudly: "Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Anarchists."

  • Must all work together because of the "Huge task of transforming America and the world."

  • "We are all together"]

In 1996, Trumka was one of approximately 130 people who played a role in helping Robert Borosage and Roger Hickey establish the Campaign for America’s Future. Among the other co-founders were such notables as Mary Frances Berry, Julian Bond, Heather Booth, John Cavanagh, Richard Cloward, Jeff Cohen, Ken Cook, Peter Dreier, Barbara Ehrenreich, Betty Friedan, Todd Gitlin, Heidi Hartmann, Tom Hayden, Denis Hayes, Roger Hickey, Patricia Ireland, Jesse Jackson, Joseph Lowery, Steve Max, Gerald McEntee, Harold Meyerson, Frances Fox Piven, Robert Reich, Mark Ritchie, Arlie Schardt, Susan Shaer, Andrew Stern, and John Sweeney.

Bottom line…

Sorry, I am not about to celebrate the life of a despicable individual whose goal was to destroy America, its Constitution and radically transform the country into a communist hell-hole. Unfortunately, the seeds that Trumka sowed are still germinating, with many already blooming within the Democrat Party.

No disrespect was meant toward the thousands of hard-working Americans who were forced to participate in a corrupt labor union by the thuggish tactics of a Trumka. It is their union that has been subverted, their dues supporting the radical communist democrats, and their livelihoods at risk because of the actions of their communist union leaders. I am still waiting for someone to show me where the union members who support the fossil fuel industry, including coal, benefit. Or those impacted by the invasion of non-union illegal aliens.

I remember my friend Nick who bemoaned the fact that his union accepted barely qualified individuals for membership to increase their revenue and negotiating power and placing these same individuals in the job rotation with skilled professionals at the union hall – at a time when there was little work for any union member.

We are so screwed.

CLIMATE CHANGE: THE "OFFICIAL" WORD IS NIGH

climate-change-reality

Oh, joy. Oh, joy.

If you are a politician or a climate scientist, the two greatest things about the future are: memories of past inconsistencies and errors can be more easily explained away by claiming the erroneous assertion was based on the “best available knowledge,” and that in five to ten years, you cannot be held accountable for your boneheaded ideas or politically-corrupted science.

We are about to see this wonderfulness in two major events…

uncop21

The United Nations COP (Conference of the Parties) will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in the United Kingdom from October 3, 2021, to November 12, 2021. The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Look for yet another short time frame before we reach the tipping point to a certain planetary catastrophe. 

ipcc-1

The United Nations IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) will release the first part of its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) sometime after its approval by the committee on August 9, 2021. The reports are designed for policymakers who need to understand the purported science behind the tough, costly, and freedom-limiting policy decisions that individual member states must make to prevent a planetary catastrophe, most of which reads more like science fiction than science fact. The science is cherry-picked, condensed, and simplified into a report format. 

"The IPCC does not conduct its own research. It identifies where there is an agreement in the scientific community, where there are differences of opinion, and where further research is needed. It is a partnership between scientists and policymakers and it is this that makes its work a credible source of information for policymakers. IPCC assessments are produced according to procedures that ensure integrity, in line with the IPCC’s overarching principles of objectivity, openness, and transparency. IPCC reports are policy-relevant, but not policy-prescriptive." <Source>

The limiting factor of the papers chosen to represent the fashionable science of the day is that they do not include papers by well-credentialed contrarian scientists or papers that were improperly and deliberately denied publication in peer-reviewed journals or are not invited to participate in conferences. (See Climategate.)

AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis – Scheduled for August 2021

AR6 Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability – Scheduled for February 2022

AR6 Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change – Scheduled for March 2022

AR6 Synthesis Report: Climate Change 2022 – Scheduled for September 2022

Bottom line…

In reading any of these reports, or at least media-generated summaries of these reports, one must remember …

(1)  Climate is always changing.

(2)  While man's activities may influence the climate to some unknown degree, the primary drivers of climate change are beyond man’s control. These include the Sun’s energy output in all spectral bands, cosmic rays, the Earth’s position relative to the Sun, the Earth’s precessional and rotational dynamics, the Earth's magnetosphere, plate tectonics and vulcanology, the deep ocean currents, the internal dynamics of the Earth, and the greatest greenhouse gas of all” water vapor. None of which, I might add, can be altered by man on a global – or even a local scale.

(3)  Climate is a complex, chaotic interplay of fluid dynamics which resists modeling; in the same manner, one cannot adequately model and predict the stock market. 

(4)  There is no answer for a global optimum temperature given the large climate differentials between the tropical equator and the frozen polar regions.

(5)  There are no known ways to accurately detect and measure man’s input to the climate equation or demonstrate its visibility against the natural variability of climate change.

(6)  Science has been corrupted by political ideologies, enforced through selective spending, and most scientists are afraid to speak out, lest they be canceled by their peers, lose their jobs, or be unable to seek funding for their work unless it reinforces, promotes, or extends the politically acceptable fashionable science of the day.

(7)  Consensus is a political, not a scientific, process, and a single paper can falsify the generally accepted science of the day.

Let the political/scientific bullshit and bafflegab flow.

Remember that these are political events seeking to use science to justify draconian political policies to:

(1)  perpetuate the existence of the United Nations without regard to the politics of its member states;

(2)  allow for the imposition of global climate taxes, which would make the United Nations self-funding and not dependent on the contributions of its member states;

(3)  create a cross-border enforcement mechanism that would supersede the national sovereignty of member states; and 

(4)  advance toward the creation of a fascist world order by implementing enforceable United Nations/member states' working agreements and treaties.

We are so screwed when we lose our inalienable rights and constitutionally guaranteed freedoms to evil individuals with malevolent political motives.

THE FACE OF SCIENTIFIC CORRUPTION?

Science is a free-for-all, a systematic methodology to observe, test, report, validate, or refute knowledge about our universe. A competition of ideas, from uncredentialled amateurs to highly credentialed “experts,” where the work of a single individual can falsify any generally accepted fact or finding.

And, peer-review is not a guarantee of validity, it is little more than a journal publication process that ensures the highest quality articles are selected and that those articles are complete and written in a clearly understandable manner. Journal articles and communications are not targeted to the lay public, they are targeted to journal readers who have the ability and skills to understand and utilize the knowledge being presented. Peer reviewers do not replicate, validate, or examine the underlying data or findings in-depth, unlike popular misconception.

However, we are now seeing the face of the political corruption of science. Where political ideology twists and contorts science to create a narrative that advances a political agenda. Where personal attacks often substitute for reasoned scientific discussion and debate over assumptions, research, findings, conclusions, and validity.

Some attacks coming from scientists protecting their life-long careers and funding against competitive challenges or from others simply questioning their work. Some attacks come from science's pseudo-celebrities who become media darlings as they are used by the mainstream media propagandists to advance a particular narrative, refute a contra-opinion, or generate audience ratings with sensationalism and controversy.

Moreover, those who want to characterize dissent as “hate speech” or contrarian approaches as “anti-science” or “disinformation” should be regarded as a blight upon science itself—suppression of academic freedom, free speech, and the competition of ideas.

In the final analysis, consensus and compromise are political processes, not a part of science or the scientific method.

Dr. Peter Hotez calls for extending federal hate-crime protections to protect scientists facing criticisms from  “far-right extremists.”

Mounting antiscience aggression in the United States

There is a troubling new expansion of antiscience aggression in the United States. It’s arising from far-right extremism, including some elected members of the US Congress and conservative news outlets that target prominent biological scientists fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

A band of ultraconservative members of the US Congress and other public officials with far-right leanings are waging organized and seemingly well-coordinated attacks against prominent US biological scientists. In parallel, conservative news outlets repeatedly and purposefully promote disinformation designed to portray key American scientists as enemies. As a consequence, many of us receive threats via email and on social media, while some are stalked at home, to create an unprecedented culture of antiscience intimidation.

In summary, the aggression against science and scientists in America arises from three sources: 1) Far-right members of the US Congress, 2) the conservative news outlets and 3) a group of thought leaders who provide intellectual underpinnings to fuel the first two elements

We should look at expanded protection mechanisms for scientists currently targeted by far-right extremism in the United States. Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY) has introduced a bill known as the Scientific Integrity Act of 2021 (H.R. 849) to protect US Government scientists from political interference, but this needs to be extended for scientists at private research universities and institutes. Still another possibility is to extend federal hate-crime protections. <Source>

Dr. Peter Hotez admits he fabricated false attack against Sharyl Attkisson

On May 6, Dr. Peter Hotez, often cited in the news media as an expert on vaccine safety, tweeted a fabricated claim about me. He falsely stated that I had endorsed an article on my website that encouraged people to go on the attack against him and compared him to "Mengele."

ha-1

I had never even seen such an article, let alone "endorsed" it on my website or anywhere else.

Hotez then used the supposed attacks against him as the basis to go on a media tour claiming that "anti-vaxxers" and white supremacists were threatening his safety.

After being contacted by my attorney, Hotez has publicly acknowledged his mistake:

ha-2

Perhaps most offensive about your tweets is the extent to which they reveal just how hypocritical your accusations against Ms. Attkisson are. You associated her with “white nationalists,” “Nazi and Nuremberg obsessions,” and “a bunch of satanic stuff,” etc., which you knew, expected, and should have reasonably foreseen would result in the very same reputational harm and hate messages about which you, yourself, were complaining. Indeed, within a short period of time, your initial tweet received significant interactions and was amplified by other significant Twitter accounts, exponentially.

Preventing the Next Pandemic: Vaccine Diplomacy in a Time of Anti-science

Modern diseases and viruses have been spurred anew by war and conflict as well as shifting poverty, urbanization, climate change, and a new troubling anti-science/anti-vaccination outlook. From such twenty-first-century forces, we have seen declines in previous global health gains, with sharp increases in vaccine-preventable and neglected diseases on the Arabian Peninsula, in Venezuela, in parts of Africa, and even on the Gulf Coast of the United States. In Preventing the Next Pandemic, international vaccine scientist and tropical disease and coronavirus expert Peter J. Hotez, MD, PhD, argues that we can—and must—rely on vaccine diplomacy to address this new world order in disease and global health.

Hotez reveals how—during his Obama-era tenure as the US Science Envoy for the Middle East and North Africa, which coincided with both the rise in these geopolitical forces and climate change—he witnessed tropical infectious diseases and established vaccine partnerships that may still combat them up close. He explores why, since 2015, we've seen the decline of global cooperation and cohesion, to the detriment of those programs that are meant to benefit the most vulnerable people in the world.

Zeroing in on the sociopolitical and environmental factors that drive our most controversial and pressing global health concerns, Hotez proposes historically proven methods to soothe fraught international relations while preparing us for a safer, healthier future. He hammers home the importance of public engagement to communicate the urgency of embracing science during troubled times. <Source>

While science can inform decision-makers and suggest protective or preventative public policies, relying on the “experts,” many of whom concentrate on “the science” while overlooking human nature, economics, and the logistics of a global marketplace, has often produced unnecessary death and suffering – especially when contrarian viewpoints are ignored and dissent is quashed.

Bottom line…

Perhaps we should demand a valid explanation from prominent scientists like Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, chief medical advisor to the president, and the media face of the pandemic, why science is being used to justify masking, social distancing, lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and vaccine passports – yet says nothing about the thousands of diseased aliens who are entering the United States without identification and medical testing and being transported to every corner of the nation?

Diseases, many virtually non-existent in the U.S. and which exist South of the border and elsewhere in the world, are making a comeback in the United States. So, how can we accept Fauci’s prescriptions when he has openly admitted to providing false and misleading information on masking to satisfy political concerns?

Politics is corrupting science, and the last thing we need to do is give legal cover to liars and charlatans who happen to be scientists.

We are so screwed.

ADAM SCHIFF: COMMUNISM AT WORK?

It is one thing to have empathy for those who are afflicted by circumstances beyond their control, but it is quite something else to extend the misery and suffering to countless others in another form of communist wealth redistribution.

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO

VOTE THE SUMBITCH OUT OF OFFICE IN CA-28 DISTRICT


Stephen —

Today, 3.6 million Americans woke up facing eviction. Because Republicans in Congress uniformly opposed an extension.

[OCS: No! They woke up facing eviction because they lacked the resources to pay for their housing. I would suggest as a direct consequence of the government’s destruction of the economy with draconian lockdowns and restrictions that destroyed tens of thousands of jobs. Not to mention the good-paying jobs that were destroyed by the progressive communist democrats and their demonization of coal, fossil fuels, and pipelines.]

The federal eviction moratorium has been a lifeline for millions of people who have been laid off or had their businesses closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Through no fault of their own.

[OCS: The eviction moratorium is an unconstitutional taking without compensation under the Fifth Amendment. It disrespects the right to own private property and imposes a serious financial burden on those forced to make continuing mortgage, utility, and tax payments without compensating or offset cashflow.] 

Billions of dollars are owed in back rent, and while Congress has authorized $46.5 billion in rental assistance, too many states and municipalities have been slow in distributing the funds.

[OCS: Where is the compensation for property owners who are being forced to default on their financial obligations due to a cascade of events exacerbated by government policy?]

Now, as Covid-19 cases continue to surge among the unvaccinated population, it would be an act of unspeakable cruelty to allow millions of people to be forced from their homes in the midst of a global pandemic. While some states have taken action to extend their individual moratoriums, it won’t be enough to protect all Americans from eviction. Congress must step in now before it’s too late.

[OCS: Congress has done enough. It is time to let the marketplace sort it all out. And, not at the taxpayer’s expense.]

Add your name to my petition demanding Congress extend the federal eviction moratorium immediately. We have no time to waste — this crisis is unfolding right now.

ADD YOUR NAME

Everyone deserves a roof over their head. That’s why as part of the next budget reconciliation package, I’m calling for the investment of billions of dollars in affordable housing — in addition to health care, mental health treatment, and substance abuse counseling.

We must address the root causes of houselessness and invest in solutions to ensure that every person, no matter their income, has a roof over their head.

[OCS: The root causes of homelessness are: mental illness, drug addiction, the greed of developers who cut sweetheart deals with the government, corrupt public policies – and temporary financial conditions that mandate the legitimate use of social safety nets.]

Congress must return to DC to act if the White House cannot. Thank you for adding your name next to mine and taking action.

— Adam

Bottom line…

It is one thing to say tax the rich, but it is quite another to decimate ordinary middle-class citizens who may own rental property to earn extra money or to fund their retirement. An example of the progressive communist democrats stealing from everybody – especially the poor.

It’s your money that is being stolen and parceled out to the special interests by Congress to fund their campaigns, purchase legislative influence, and buy votes.

We are so screwed.

WHAT HAPPENED TO WILLIE NELSON? CHOOSING DEMOCRAT VOTER FRAUD OVER VOTER INTEGRITY?

In my extensive experience with celebrities, I have found that they rarely live up to their public relations-created and managed persona. With few exceptions, no matter how they present themselves to the public, most were calculating ego-centric individuals living in an industry bubble. A bubble that was decidedly progressive, communist, and Democrat-oriented – if they cared about politics, world events, or their nation at all. Some more than others. Many were uninformed, and quite frankly, dumb as rocks, employing advisors to assist them in directing their charitable and political donations for maximum personal effect.

So I do not know why I was surprised when one of my favorite recording artists, Willie Nelson, self-portrayed as a freedom-loving, pot-smoking, music outlaw threw in with a decidedly communist Beto O’Rourke and others to protest Texas voting legislation that would assist in ensuring election integrity.

Willie Nelson condemns the Texas voting bill as 'un-American' and headlines at the end of a four-day protest

willie-nelson

Texas is one of several GOP-led states that has introduced voting and elections bills following the 2020 election - and masses have come out to protest as Democrats call them an attack on voting rights.

[OCS: These are the ill-informed, partisan useful idiots who do not take the time or exert the effort to actually read the legislation which is pending.]

Nelson played a short set to close out the rally staged in Austin to close out the rally, which featured the star's 2018 song, "Vote 'Em Out."

"It is important that we ensure the right for EVERY American to vote and vote safely," Nelson said in a statement through the Poor People's Campaign when he announced his participation in the rally in support of Democratic state legislators who bolted for Washington two weeks ago to block GOP-backed voting restrictions.

[Poor People’s Campaign? One of those misnamed, expensive, highly-organized Astroturf events designed to connect with the “little people” and appear as an organic display of protest. It is not unusual for progressive communist democrat groups to hide behind lofty-sounding names that are actually run by party operatives and lobbyists.]

"Laws making it more difficult for people to vote is un-American and are intended to punish poor people, people of color, the elderly, and disabled - why? If you can't win playing by the rules, then it's you and your platform — not everyone else's ability to vote."  <Source>

[OCS: If Willie took the time to review the legislation, he might find that it promotes voter integrity by restricting the vote to legal citizens and reducing the opportunities for ill-intentioned political operatives to subvert the vote using coercion and fraudulent tricks.

  • Prohibits unattended ballot drop boxes and drive-through voting centers.
  • New regulations for early voting hours, including a ban on 24-hour voting.
  • A ban on sending unsolicited mail-in applications and third-party distribution of ballot applications.
  • Tracking of mailed and returned ballots.
  • New ID requirements for voting by mail. Require voters requesting an absentee ballot to provide their driver's license number or Social Security number on both their request for a ballot and their return envelope containing their ballot.
  • A correction process for absentee ballots.
  • Monthly voter roll reviews.
  • Requirements for identifying poll-workers and implementing poll-watcher protections.
  • Limiting how local officials can expand voting options.
  • Limit private donations and influence over county elections.
  • Requiring paper audit trails for voting.
  • Requiring the recording of vote counting.

Every legal citizen should have their vote counted and not have their vote disenfranchised by illegal aliens, political operatives, or dishonest poll workers.]

Then there are the out-and-out communist front groups and sympathizers…

Jane Fonda, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, BLM Beg Biden to End Trump's 'Cruel' Cuba Embargo

Jane Fonda: “If you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that one day we would become Communist….My biggest regret is I never got to f*** Che Guevara.” (Jane Fonda as quoted by her biographer Patricia Bosworth.)

Oliver Stone: “Fidel Castro is very selfless and moral, one of the world’s wisest men.”

Danny Glover: “My heart beat faster!–one of the most important moments in my life!” (A hyperventilating Danny Glover, while placing flowers on Che Guevara’s tomb on one of his frequent red-carpet trips to Stalinist Cuba.)

Black Lives Matter. “As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!

“We, the undersigned, are making this urgent, public appeal to you (President Biden) to reject the cruel policies put into place by the Trump White House that have created so much suffering among the Cuban people.”

The entire fascinating document signed by-- among many other historic lovers of freedom and enemies of cruelty, Jane Fonda, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, BLM, Daniel Ellsberg alongside many apparatchiks of the Castro regime—can be seen here.

[OCS: By all means, let us prop up a cruel, murderous communist dictatorship with American dollars since Cuba’s communist benefactors, Russia and Venezuela, can no longer afford communist charity.

Look at the letter and see all of the communist front groups and sympathizers in one handy list.

From Hollywood, we find the usual suspects…

  • Jackson Browne
  • Jane Fonda
  • Danny Glover
  • Mark Ruffalo
  • Susan Sarandon
  • Oliver Stone
  • Emma Thompson
  • Marisa Tomei
  • Peter Coyote

Conspicuously absent is everybody’s favorite red, Sean Penn.]

Let us not forget what a real traitor looks like in a time of war.

Bottom line…

What is it that subverts American exceptionalism and promotes a fifth column of individuals who are actively seeking to destroy America from within or provide material aid and comfort to our enemies? Especially those strident voices that would be quickly and brutally silenced if their protest was against a hostile communist regime?

When will we actually enforce the Foreign Agents Registration Act, requiring agents of foreign governments to register as foreign agents with the U.S. Department of Justice? Unfortunately, the DOJ has taken a hard left turn and is no longer a reliable or credible law enforcement institution.

We are so screwed.

SCIENCE: NEW LAW OF RELATIVITY?

A friend of mine asked me what happened to science and why so many scientists will privately acknowledge the limits of scientific knowledge and the difficulties in experimentation, yet speak with assurance and certitude when speaking about things like the pandemic, sex, global warming, and the soft “social sciences?”

I told him that I would draw him a picture on a napkin…

POLITICS-SCIENCE 

Most competent scientists remain silent, especially when asked for comments beyond their area of expertise or requested to project “local” findings into “global” certainties. Others are afraid to speak of their own FUD (Fears, Uncertainty, and Doubt) which runs counter to a political narrative which can affect their reputations, careers, and ability to receive funding for their projects.

Aided and abetted by a dishonest mainstream media that appears to act as propagandists for the radical progressive communist democrats, most scientists would rather remain silent than risk being canceled by their peers, many of whom have invested their entire career in projects which appear to support public policy.

Bottom line…

Science is being used to justify draconian restrictions on American's inalienable God-given rights and the support of radical destructive public policies.

We are so screwed.

GIVE CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS A HISTORIC WIN: ELECT LARRY ELDER AS ITS FIRST BLACK GOVERNOR

If California’s progressive communist democrats want to make everything about race and the color of your skin, they now have an unprecedented opportunity to replace a corrupt, contemptible elitist governor, Gavin Newsom, with Larry Elder, a  proven communicator, a lawyer (University of Michigan Law School), an author, and a media personality with a commonsense outlook on life and governance.

LARRY_ELDER_FOR_GOVERNOR

A little history…

Despite California’s Democrats professed respect for Blacks, there have been few Black leaders. A former police officer and attorney Tom Bradley was the first and only African American mayor of Los Angeles (1973-1993), and Mervyn M. Dymally was the only African American lieutenant governor of California (2003-2008). Both were Democrats. Bradley’s 20 years in office was the longest tenure by any mayor in the city's history.

Recall Gavin Newsom…

recallnewsom

The election date is Tuesday, September 14, 2021. The ballots will be mailed in August and contain two questions. (1), Should Governor Newsom be recalled? and (2), Which of the listed candidates should immediately replace him as governor? If the governor is recalled, the candidate with the most votes will immediately be sworn into office.

I am primarily voting against Gavin Newsom, a smarmy elite “do as I say, not as I do” politician who has been a disaster for California in the areas of asinine COVID-19 mandates, taxation, environmental regulations, siding with criminals, and neglecting of our decaying infrastructure. At the same time, he welcomes illegal aliens to destroy our state.

It was Newsom who jiggered the election date to minimize turnout. And he discouraged prominent democrats from running to keep the vote from being diluted. He is hoping Republicans stay at home and do not vote by mail.

Bottom line…

We are so screwed here in California with higher taxes, increasing rules and regulations, decaying and crumbling infrastructure, and a hoard of illegal aliens who are treated as super-citizens, exempt from law enforcement, who are decimating our healthcare, education, and criminal resources.

Even worse, the state is filled with progressive communist democrats who are Californicating the nation.

MAKE THE DEMOCRATS LIVE UP TO THEIR WORDS!

WHAT HAPPENED TO BRYAN SUITS? GONE FROM KFI640.

bsi-download

KFI screws the pooch, Bryan Suits departs KFI640 for podcast land…

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

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

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

Bryan’s signoff…

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

The KFI kiss-off…

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

The backstory...

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

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

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

All is not lost…

dsp

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

Bottom line…

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

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

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