WTF: WOODWARD AND COSTA UNDERMINED ANOTHER AMERICAN INSTITUTION

MILLEY

The charge should be a conspiracy to commit treason…

Mere agreement and decision to commit treason is punishable.  If actual acts of treason are committed after the conspiracy or proposal, the crime committed will be treason, and the conspiracy or proposal is considered as a means in the commission thereof.

No matter what explanation is offered by President Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and General Mark Milley, or various leg-humpers and lickspittles, Pelosi and Milley appear guilty of treasonous actions to deprive a sitting President of his constitutional authority as Commander-in-Chief.

Let us not forget that the conspiracy started with a civilian, Nancy Pelosi, who reached out to the military to question and/or curtail the Commander-in-Chief's ability to protect the United States from a nuclear-armed adversary. Milley's conversation with the commanders constituted specific action that confirms the conspiracy. And, Milley's conversation with the Communist Chinese could have precipitated a nuclear war if these sensed weakness. 

At the very least, Milley should be court-martialed. If found guilty of the charges and specifications, stripped of rank, given a dishonorable discharge, and sent to the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth for ten years or more. Pelosi should be, likewise, expelled from Congress, tried for treason, and, if found guilty, remanded to the United States Penitentiary, Leavenworth, for ten years or more.

Peril, the book that further damaged a nation in decline…

There is little doubt in my mind that sensationalist and progressive journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa have done more to discredit the venerable military in the public’s mind than everything Trump may have said or tweeted in passing.

Another step toward chaos and anarchy that benefits the radical progressive communist democrats and their power-grab agenda.

Combined with the nation’s loss of faith in our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies under the Democrats, there are few institutions left that are viewed by the American public as credible and trustworthy.

You cannot even trust the mainstream media or social media platforms to accurately convey the news of the day without canceling, censoring, or coloring with a narrative.

There were civilian alternatives at hand in the Executive Branch of the government…

Which begs the question, why did General Milley not inform the Vice President of the United States of President Trump’s growing instability and likely incapacitation to fulfill his duties?

Alternatively, to request the Secretary of Defense to call a formal cabinet meeting to discuss the possibility of invoking an Article 25 transfer of legitimate power to the Vice President?

Or – honorably resign and then address the nation as a civilian?

Moreover, one can only wonder what General Milley thinks of President Joe Biden, who is clearly showing signs of progressive dementia and possibly amped up with short-acting drugs for his limited appearances? Or the wisdom of those who appear to be wielding power in the President’s name.

Bottom line…

With the debacle in Afghanistan and the ascendancy of an unstable domestic political situation, the probability that other nations (China, Iran, Russia, North Korea, etc.) with positions adverse to American interests precipitating a dangerous confrontation rises exponentially.

For the first time in American history, there is some doubt about the stability and competence of the civilian-lead leadership of the military and its senior military commanders. Likewise, the senior leadership of our premier intelligence agencies appears to be similarly compromised.

The complete failure of the government under the Democrats is inching closer.

We are so screwed.

UNBELIEVABLE: STANFORD PROFESSORS ENCOURAGE COMMUNIST CHINESE SPYING?

ccs

Located in Silicon Valley, Stanford University is at the heart of technical innovation and entrepreneurial activity – an area with companies with the most to lose from the loss of intellectual property stolen by the Communist Chinese. 

So why would 177-plus Stanford faculty members from more than 40 departments send a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland asking for the Justice Department to discontinue its attempt to identify and prosecute Chinese spies that engage in the theft of intellectual property, the theft of trade secrets, hacking, and economic espionage?

  1. Could these individuals be spies or have other links to the Communist Chinese Party or its military affiliates?
  2. Is there money, sex, blackmail, or coercion involved?
  3. Why would they attempt to use the well-known Communist Chinese “anti-Asian” race card to disguise and protect spying and espionage?

This is the China Initiative program these useful idiots want to kill…

INFORMATION ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE'S CHINA INITIATIVE AND A COMPILATION OF CHINA-RELATED PROSECUTIONS SINCE 2018

About 80 percent of all economic espionage prosecutions brought by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) allege conduct that would benefit the Chinese state, and there is at least some nexus to China in around 60 percent of all trade secret theft cases.

The Department of Justice’s China Initiative reflects the strategic priority of countering Chinese national security threats and reinforces the President’s overall national security strategy.

The Initiative was launched against the background of previous findings by the Administration concerning China’s practices. In March 2018, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced the results of an investigation of China’s trade practices under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974.

It concluded, among other things, that a combination of China’s practices are unreasonable, including its outbound investment policies and sponsorship of unauthorized computer intrusions, and that “[a] range of tools may be appropriate to address these serious matters.”

In June 2018, the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy issued a report on “How China’s Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World,” documenting “the two major strategies and various acts, policies, and practices Chinese industrial policy uses in seeking to acquire the intellectual property and technologies of the world and to capture the emerging high- technology industries that will drive future economic growth.”

In addition to identifying and prosecuting those engaged in trade secret theft, hacking, and economic espionage, the Initiative focuses on protecting our critical infrastructure against external threats through foreign direct investment and supply chain compromises, as well as combatting covert efforts to influence the American public and policymakers without proper transparency.

The China Initiative is led by the Department’s National Security Division (NSD), which is responsible for countering nation-state threats to the United States. <Read more…>

(excerpts)

We, faculty members at Stanford University, are writing this open letter to express our concerns about the U.S. Department of Justice’s China Initiative. We acknowledge the importance to the United States of protecting both intellectual property and information that is essential to our national and economic security. We understand that concerns about Chinese government sanctioned activities including intellectual property theft and economic espionage are important to address. We believe, however, that the China Initiative has deviated significantly from its claimed mission: it is harming the United States’ research and technology competitiveness and it is fueling biases that, in turn, raise concerns about racial profiling. As the President’s Science Advisor, Dr. Eric Lander, stated on August 10, 2021: “We have to assiduously avoid basing policies or processes on prejudice – including those that could fuel anti-Asian sentiments or xenophobia.” We believe that the China Initiative is one such policy. We therefore would like to suggest that you terminate the China Initiative and replace it with an appropriate response that avoids the flaws of this initiative.

[OCS: If they truly understood the magnitude of the threat, they would not be asking for program modifications that weaken the detection and prosecution of spies.

It is the height of idiocy to root out Communist Chinese espionage by investigating Norwegians and those not coming from or having family in Communist China and others with a low probability of being Chinese agents.

Notice the favored tactic of the communists is to use our nation’s abhorrence of racism against our own interests by using “labeling” – racist, bigot, anti-Asian, xenophobia, etc -- to silence critics and enemies of the communist regime.]

More specifically, we believe the China Initiative suffers from the following fundamental flaws:

First, the China Initiative disproportionally targets researchers of Chinese origin. Publicly available information indicates that investigations are often triggered not by any evidence of wrongdoing, but just because of a researcher’s connections with China. (For example, see the recent article and the research by Prof. Jenny Lee quoted therein. ref: Has the Hunt for Chinese Spies Become a Witch Hunt?, Karin Fischer, Chronicle of Higher Education, August 11, 2021). In many cases the federal response seems disproportionate and inappropriate. In some cases, federal agents associated with the China Initiative have prosecuted researchers without solid evidence. Moreover, racial profiling – even when undertaken in pursuit of justice – is both inconsistent with U.S. law and with the principles underlying our society.  Moreover, these actions do not just affect the prosecuted faculty but affect the many more university researchers who are targeted, investigated, and feel threatened by inquires initiated without prior evidence of significant wrongdoing. Universities and research institutions are often pressured to investigate researchers who are singled out only because of their personal or professional connections with China. (For example, see the description by Prof. Randy Katz, the Vice Chancellor for Research of the University of California Berkeley during a recent Congressional Roundtable available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G24w7d2_owo)

[OCS: Notice how cleverly our enemies use our own laws against us to hide their nefarious activities and disguise their agents?]

Second, in most of the China Initiative cases involving academics, the alleged crime has nothing to do with scientific espionage or intellectual property theft. Most prosecutions are for misconduct such as failure to disclose foreign appointments or funding. While such problems should be addressed, they should not be confused with national security concerns. Due to the openness of scientific research in academia, it is not surprising that the China Initiative has not led to more espionage-related prosecutions. It is misleading to the public that such prosecutions on unrelated crimes are presented as efforts combating national security threats.

[OCS: I wonder if they are referencing laboratory researchers who forgot to mention that they were officers in the Communist Chinese People’s Liberation Army?]

Third, the China Initiative is harming the U.S. science and technology enterprise and the future of the U.S. STEM workforce.

[OCS: We are training our enemies at great expense. The reason the Chinese Communists can progress so fast, cheaply, and effortlessly is because we provide the research and blueprints.]

Since World War II, the U.S. has benefited from an influx of many of the most talented scientists from around the world, including a large number from China. They have played a significant role in our success as a society. For example, a 2018 study by the American Society for Engineering Education reports that 28.4% of engineering faculty (and 31.5% of Assistant Professors) in the U.S. are Asian. In recent years, the China Initiative (and some other actions of the federal government) have created an increasingly hostile atmosphere for Chinese Americans, visitors, and immigrants of Chinese origin, which has already discouraged many scholars from coming to or staying in the U.S. This seriously hampers our efforts to recruit the best Chinese students and postdoctoral scholars.

[OCS: Why do we continue to allow access to our laboratories to those who continue to communicate, remotely or in person, with the Communist Chinese?]

The difference between the open fundamental research carried out at universities and more applied and proprietary industrial or military research in the commercial sector must be recognized.

[OCS: It is often fundamental research that leads to military and commercial projects and products. Like inoffensive laminar flow models used in fluid dynamics leading to the shaping of hypersonic reentry warheads.]

Many of our most challenging global problems, including climate change & sustainability and current & future pandemics, require international engagement. Without an open and inclusive environment that attracts the best talents in all areas, the United States cannot retain its world leading position in science and technology.

[OCS: HELL NO! IT WAS THE CHINESE COMMUNISTS WHO MODIFIED A VIRUS AND SEEDED IT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. WITH ZERO SCIENTIFIC COOPERATION AND THEY LIED AND DESTROYED EVIDENCE. THE RESEARCH WAS LINKED TO MILITARY RESEARCH, AND WE HAD NO ACCESS TO THEIR LAB OF POTENTIAL ORIGIN. COOPERATION? BULLSHIT!]

In some China Initiative cases, normal academic activities that we all do, such as serving as referees and writing recommendation letters, are adduced as evidence of “extensive dealings with the PRC” (ref: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/20452311-gang-chen-federal-affidavit). Such actions are based on a significant misunderstanding of how scientific research works. They are detrimental to international collaboration. Instead of protecting the national security of the U.S., we believe such actions harm the U.S.’s ability to innovate.

We strongly urge you to terminate the China Initiative and develop an alternative response to the challenges posed by our relations with the People’s Republic of China, one that avoids racial profiling and discouraging beneficial and important collaborations and influx of talented personnel.

[OCS: The Communist Chinese continue to abuse our trust and openness. I suggest we get tougher with security checks, random and targeted polygraphs, and seeding our own agents into the process.]

Sincerely yours,
Concerned faculty members (signatory names listed on next pages)

Bottom line…

I am pissed. Stop our corrupt institutions, many of which embrace communism, and the useful idiots, from selling out our nation. This also applies to politicians and others who would cheerfully betray the United States for a buck, getting laid, or a pat on the back by some prestigious organization.

I say remove military contracts from schools that our enemies have significantly influenced.

And stop issuing visas to anyone associated with the Chinese Communists – especially the children of high-ranking party members.

We are so screwed when we sell out America for pennies upon the manufactured dollar. And doubly screwed when we cannot trust our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies to do their jobs. Millions of dollars were wasted on a phony Russia pee-pee hoax when they could have devoted the same manpower to protecting America.

LARRY ELDER ACCIDENTLY REVEALS MAJOR FLAW IN THE GOP

lets-be-gracious-in-defeat

er-no

In his concession speech acknowledging that California Governor Gavin Newsom won the recall election and will retain his job…

Elder was interrupted by booing when he mentioned Newsom’s name,  “As you know, my opponent, Governor Gavin Newsom..." Massive booing. "He then responded, “Come on. Let’s be gracious in defeat. And by the way, we may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war.”

And therein revealed the weakness of the GOP – responding to months of vicious opposition lies and attacks with gentlemanly grace and respect. Promising it will somehow get better “next time.”

With the progressive communist democrats, there is no next time. They fight as if they face an existential threat and will do anything, including illegal and fraudulent activities, to win. And should they lose, they continue plotting, fundraising, and campaigning 24/7/365.

Now consider Newsom’s victory speech…

Newsom claimed that while a majority of Californians voted “no” on the recall, they actually voted “yes” to his administration’s goals.

“We said yes to all those things we hold dear as Californians, and I would argue as Americans—economic justice, social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, our values. All of those things were on the ballot this evening.”

No apology for Newsom’s piss-poor management of California. Increasing crime as a consequence of liberal policing, prosecution, and drug policies. Increasing taxes and fewer state services. Increasing homelessness with benefits attracting over 50% of the nation’s poor. Poor forest management policies exacerbate wildfires. Sanctuary policies destroying our institutions and safety nets, as predicted by the communists Cloward and Piven in their infamous strategy for destroying a nation. Lockdowns that crippled California's economy. Vaccine and mask mandates. Union corruption.

Full speed ahead.

Truth be told…

Even while being outrageously attacked by the mainstream media, Elder, portrayed as being “Trumpian,” and subject to headlines like  “Larry Elder is the Black face of white supremacy. You’ve been warned.” Elder refused to play the race card.

Sticking with the issues, Elder did not call out the Democrats for being racist by rejecting the historic opportunity to elect California’s first black governor. He humorously rejected racial allegations that would have been outrageous if said by a Republican.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, the ex-GOP flack-turned-liberal host allowed a guest on her show to assert without pause that Larry Elder, the top Republican gubernatorial candidate who could become California’s first Black governor, represents “Trumpism in Blackface.” <Source>

Instead of hammering Newsom and the Democrats, Elder personalized the race and told his life story to anyone who would listen, concentrating on six or so core issues: homelessness, crime, housing, education, wildfires, and the water shortage. All the while, he was being demonized, denigrated, and disparaged by a mainstream and social media campaign that saw an influx of nearly $100 million and a massive “get out the vote” mobilization from the unions.

And how stupid was it to suppress the GOP mail balloting by suggesting that fraud was likely and you needed to deliver your ballot personally? How stupid not to demonize your opponent as he savages your life and reputation?

Bottom line…

Look for the unions to claim their due.

The 2022 Democrat playbook has now been typeset: regardless of the actual issues and the damage done by the radical progressive communist democrats, the opposition candidate is a hater, a racist, a white supremacist, a homophobe, anti-science, a climate denier, a misogynist, a Trumpist, an avatar for Trump, or Trump incarnate. The pattern will be opposition-research-driven and personal.  Panic, payoffs, and payouts will be the highlights.

As others have noted, Larry Elder said he wanted to save California; instead, he saved Governor Gavin Newsom from being recalled.

With the 2022 election looming large and the GOP, especially the California GOP, content to sit back and wait a few months before the election to finalize their campaigns -- we can look forward to watching their rightful victory implode. And with it freedom and democracy.

The highlight of the election was Gavin Newsom and the Democrats has to spend $75 million to keep a job he already won -- and about 35% of Californians still flipped him the middle finger!

We are so screwed.

IS MARK MILLEY A HYPER-PARTISAN TRAITOR?

There is no doubt in my mind that General Mark Milley needs to be court-martialed under the most serious charges and specifications possible…

MILLEY-TREASON

(1)  It appears General Mark Milley acted beyond the limits of his authority as the advisor to the President to insert himself into the chain of command governing the control and release of the nation’s nuclear weapons.

(2)  It appears that usurping or interfering with President’s Commander-in-Chief duties is either conspiracy to commit mutiny or treason.

(3)  It appears that Milley, using a back-channel to speak with our enemies and undermining the power and authority of his Commander-in-Chief to suggest the President was unstable, is an act of treason that put our nation at peril. Especially, if he agreed to provide information on attack planning or nuclear posture. His pledge to notify China of a prior attack is TREASON!

(4)  Classified information relating to the nation’s nuclear posture or documents released to a journalist is a criminal act.

(5)  The idea that General Mark Milley would take no similar action considering the mental incapacity, and possible drug use, of President Biden is a further indictment of his activities.

(6)  That House Speaker Nancy Pelosi preemptively spoke with the command staff about the mental stability of the President of the United States should be grounds for her impeachment and removal from office.

PERIL-COVER

Woodward/Costa book: Worried Trump could 'go rogue,' Milley took secret action to protect nuclear weapons

Two days after the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, President Donald Trump's top military adviser, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, single-handedly took secret action to limit Trump from potentially ordering a dangerous military strike or launching nuclear weapons, according to "Peril," a new book by legendary journalist Bob Woodward and veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.

Woodward and Costa write that Milley, deeply shaken by the assault, 'was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.'

Milley worried that Trump could 'go rogue,' the authors write.

"You never know what a president's trigger point is," Milley told his senior staff, according to the book.

In response, Milley took extraordinary action, and called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on January 8 to review the process for military action, including launching nuclear weapons. Speaking to senior military officials in charge of the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon's war room, Milley instructed them not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.

"No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure," Milley told the officers, according to the book. He then went around the room, looked each officer in the eye, and asked them to verbally confirm they understood.

'You know he's crazy'

Milley's fear was based on his own observations of Trump's erratic behavior. His concern was magnified by the events of January 6 and the 'extraordinary risk' the situation posed to US national security, the authors write. Milley had already had two back-channel phone calls with China's top general, who was on high alert over the chaos in the US.

“General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” Milley told him. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.”

In the book’s account, Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

In the second call, placed to address Chinese fears about the events of Jan. 6, Li wasn’t as easily assuaged, even after Milley promised him, “We are 100 percent steady. Everything’s fine. But democracy can be sloppy sometimes.”

Li remained rattled, and Milley, who did not relay the conversation to Trump, according to the book, understood why. The chairman, 62 at the time and chosen by Trump in 2018, believed the president had suffered a mental decline after the election, the authors write, a view he communicated to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a phone call on Jan. 8. He agreed with her evaluation that Trump was unstable, according to a call transcript obtained by the authors.

[OCS: 8 USC Ch. 115. §2381. Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.]

Then Milley received a blunt phone call from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the book. Woodward and Costa exclusively obtained a transcript of the call, during which Milley tried to reassure Pelosi that the nuclear weapons were safe.

Pelosi pushed back.

"What I'm saying to you is that if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the Capitol, who even knows what else he may do? And is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?"

Pelosi continued, "You know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time."

According to Woodward and Costa, Milley responded, "Madam Speaker, I agree with you on everything."

After the call, Milley decided he had to act. He told his top service chiefs to watch everything "all the time." He called the director of the National Security Agency, Paul Nakasone, and told him, "Needles up ... keep watching, scan." And he told then-CIA Director Gina Haspel, "Aggressively watch everything, 360."

The authors write, 'Milley was overseeing the mobilization of America's national security state without the knowledge of the American people or the rest of the world.'

Woodward and Costa also write that 'some might contend that Milley had overstepped his authority and taken extraordinary power for himself,' but he believed his actions were 'a good faith precaution to ensure there was no historic rupture in the international order, no accidental war with China or others, and no use of nuclear weapons.'

<Source>

You know you are screwed when Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, the NSC staffer who started the Trump impeachment inquiry with his dissatisfaction with Trump's Ukraine foreign policy, calls you out...

VINDMAN

We owe Woodward some measure of gratitude…

For exposing Generally Milley as a cowardly, incompetent pencil pusher who committed treason who is more concerned with Critical Race Theory,  “White Rage,” and White Supremacy in the ranks than the Chinese incursion in the South China Sea. And the criminal duplicity of the Democrats.

In the interests of fairness, perhaps Woodward needs to extend his trilogy to cover a mentally incapacitated President Biden?…

BOOKS

Bottom line…

The fact that, if Milley was so worried and fearful, he did not go to the Trump Cabinet and seek support for the 25th Amendment incapacity removal process or publicly resign – but pledged to notify our enemies before an attack -- is a basis for a charge of treason.

There is little or no doubt in my mind that our nation was, and is, in a riskier posture with the progressive communist democrats and Obamacons in charge than ever before. One need only point to the unconditional surrender of Afghanistan, providing sophisticated military-grade weapons, money, and aid and comfort to our enemies, and the unforgivable -- leaving American citizens behind enemy lines to face capture, death, torture, and imprisonment. Not to mention their attempts to empower Iran with money and a nuclear weapon.

There is little doubt that Mark Milley is a weak, hyper-partisan traitor who needs to be court-martialed.

And God knows what the Obamacons are saying and doing to Biden to effect a bloodless coup?

We are so screwed.

NO SH*TTR -- RECALL GAVIN NEWSOM

Whatever happens, California deserves better…

california

There are generally four scenarios…

  • The overly optimistic who believe that Californians have been abused enough and will overwhelmingly recall California Governor and select Larry Elder as his replacement.
  • The wishers who believe it will be a tight race and the outcome can go either war, dependent on the turnout and election integrity.
  • The pessimistic who believe that defeat was snatched from jaws of victory because Larry Elder made the election all about Larry Elder, not about Newsom and his failures -- energizing Democrats and creating a $20 million war chest to support his 2022 re-election attempt. Needlessly provoking national Democrats with his talk of tipping the Senate by naming a Republican replacement for an ailing Diane Feinstein. Or channeling Donald Trump about election shenanigans before the first vote was tallied.
  • And the apathetic who don’t vote, don’t give a damn and believe tomorrow will be much the same as yesterday.

Outcomes…

If Newsom is not recalled (70-30 against) and replacement question two is null and void, Newsom will, again, face re-election or retirement on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.

If Newsom is recalled and Larry Elder is elected, it remains to see what he can do by Executive Order and legislation before Tuesday, November 8, 2022, when he will stand for re-election.

If the vote is close or contested, look for recounts and court maneuvering.

If there are significant breaches of election integrity, especially in Los Angeles County under the supervision of  Dean Logan, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, it is likely things will wind up in court.

Bottom line…

Pray for California.

It's a bitch when you cannot trust the government or the news media to give you accurate and verifiable information.

We are so screwed.

BIDEN -- NEWSOM: CALIFORNICATING THE NATION

What matters most to Californians?

  • Homelessness -- they are everywhere, hassling everybody, shooting drugs, defecating on the sidewalks, forming crime-ridden tent cities.
  • Crime -- DAs that refuse to prosecute; criminals released in communities, if you steal less than $950, it is considered a misdemeanor, and the police don’t arrest you. 
  • Education -- California students perform worse on academic measures than students in other states, with lower graduation rates.  Minority students are especially disadvantaged, and San Francisco has one of the most segregated school systems in the country.
  • High taxes -- California also has the highest income tax rates in the country, and businesses are leaving the state in droves.
  • Poverty -- California has the highest poverty rate in the country, and it’s the residence of more than half the nation’s homeless population.
  • Overwhelming Illegal Immigration -- draining our resources, including healthcare, employment, and education. 

Here comes President Biden, a senile old man who can barely function without the extraordinary intervention of his puppeteers, to save the worst governor in America – Gavin Newsom – from being recalled on September 14th.

Biden-newsomThings Biden could be doing right now:

  • Consoling the families of the Marines who lost their lives with his cluster-fuck surrender of Afghanistan.
  • Planning to rescue the California school children STILL stranded behind enemy lines in Afghanistan.
  • Planning to rescue the hundreds of other Americans stranded in Afghanistan.
  • Visiting Americans whose lives were destroyed by hurricanes not caused by Marxist global warming.
  • Doing anything Presidential than taking a nap or hiding in his basement.

It's true...

WHAT IS IT WITH BLACK FEMINIST QUEER PROFESSORS?

I can’t help but wonder if it is a form of mental illness or self-serving ego-driven greed that is producing a cohort of black feminist, queer professors that appear to hate America and promote Marxism and Communism?

It's twenty years since 9/11 and I'm still really disturbed by how many white pundits and correspondents talk about it.

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: This is a memorial recognition of a historic attack on America and the American way of life that killed 2,977 innocent Americans and countless others who lost their lives in rescue attempts. This event transcended race, religion, color, sex, gender, class, wealth, position, and political affiliation.

What is it about political scientists, historians, and others who quickly minimize, erase, or re-write history to conform to their warped narratives?] 

I'm watching Andy Card and Jeh Johnson on MSNBC. Card just said that 9/11 was the first time that Americans ever felt fear. He said that it was the last morning we woke up without fear and that the "terrorists" succeeded in introducing us to fear.
Wow. That's hella incorrect.

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: Where is the nuance and context that political scientists speak of? Other than the attack on Pearl Harbor by armed forces, this was the first time that Americans sensed their vulnerability to a large-scale terrorist mass casualty event that could have taken place anywhere in the United States. Truth be told, the attack could have been thwarted if the FBI could have gained timely access to Zacarias Moussaoui’s laptop.]

White Americans might not have really felt true fear before 9/11 because they never felt what it meant to be accessible, vulnerable, and on the receiving side of military violence at home. But, white Americans' experiences are not a stand-in for "America."

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: Again, with an inappropriate racial reference. Is the author suggesting that Americans embrace empathy or equivalency with non-Americans engaged in world conflicts? And, again, truth be told, much of the terrorism in the world involves radicalized Islamicists.]

Plenty of us Americans know what it's like to experience fear and we knew before 9/11. For a lot of us, we know fear *because* of other Americans.

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: Is this a backhand contextual reference to racism or alleged police use of force incidents?]

We have to be more honest about what 9/11 was and what it wasn't. It was an attack on the heteropatriarchal capitalistic systems that America relies upon to wrangle other countries into passivity. It was an attack on the systems many white Americans fight to protect.

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: I strongly doubt that radical Islamicists think in terms of “heteropatriarchal capitalistic systems” and see America as a land of corrupt infidels standing in the way of world dominance by Islam and Shariah law. A power that resists and restrains their actions to use terror as a weapon to achieve their destiny.

Americans, regardless of their identity and physical characteristics, fight to preserve the system that has advanced the global society in unimaginable ways and provided a standard of living unattainable in many parts of the world. It is not uncommon to see “the American poor and oppressed” with large-screen televisions, expensive phones, and sneakers.

I am still at a loss to see what “studies” programs have produced other than grievance, division, and strife – while giving employment to individuals who contribute little or nothing to society and are unemployable outside government, NGO’s, academia, politics, and race-based shame remediation consultancies.] 

We have to be clear that the same motivations that animated America's hypervigilance and responsiveness to "terror" after 9/11 are now motivating the carceral state and anti-immigration policy.

— jenn m. jackson (@JennMJacksonPhD) September 10, 2021

[OCS: You incarcerate those who are a threat to society to protect innocents from being killed, maimed, tortured, and intimidated by force.

You protect your borders because that is one of the defining characteristics of a nation-state and the rationale that the state serves its citizens, not the broader society demanding that a nation’s wealth be shared or redistributed to others.]

Consider the motivation?

Jackson is the author of the forthcoming book BLACK WOMEN TAUGHT US (Random House Press, 2022). The book is an intellectual and political history of Black women’s activism, movement organizing, and philosophical work that explores how women from Harriet Jacobs to Audre Lorde to the members of the Combahee River Collective, among others, have for centuries taught us how to fight for justice and radically reimagine a more just world for us all.

Biography:

Jenn M. Jackson (she/they) is an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science. She also holds faculty affiliations in African American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and LGBT Studies. Jackson is a Senior Research Associate at the Campbell Public Affairs Institute. Their research is in Black Politics with a focus on group threat, gender and sexuality, political behavior, and social movements. Jackson is the author of peer-reviewed articles at Public Culture, Politics, Groups, and Identities, and the Journal of Women, Politics, and Policy, and the author of several forthcoming book chapters on the intersections of race, gender, class, and politics.

Jackson’s first academic book project investigates the role of threat in influencing Black Americans’ political behavior through the lens of policing in the United States. They find that Black women are most likely to express concerns about state-based and intragroup threat. Comparatively, Black men vary drastically in their responses to group threat depending on their sexual orientation, gender expression, and vulnerability to stereotypes.

[OCS: How about investigating why so many black men become combinative and resist arrest and being taken into custody, forcing the police to use force that may result in death?]

Jackson received their doctoral degree from the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago where they also received a graduate certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies. Jackson earned a BS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Southern California with a minor in Sociology. They went on to earn an MA with honors in Political Science from California State University, Fullerton where they later taught Political Science Research Methods and Black Politics. 

[OCS: Their? Are we talking about multiple personalities receive a single degree? Certainly, the author attended schools with a history of radicalizing students and producing progressive communist democrats.]

Bottom line…

In my opinion, any academic program whose fundamental axioms are based on racism or hatred of our country is suspect and should be countered by conservative commentary. Likewise, people who view everything through the prism of race are likely to be racists, like those who view everything through the prism of class struggle are likely to be communists.

The thought that this negative person is teaching others is distressing.

We are so screwed.
