PUTTING THE TWIT IN TWITTERVERSE: GRETA THUNBERG IS UPSET

The global climate oracle has spoken. Gretta Thunberg, 18, has pronounced the Cop26 summit on climate change held in Glasgow, Scotland, a “greenwash” failure. 

It appears that the world has not listened to her and adopted a one-world government to implement the type of socialism that would force nations to save the planet. Of course, being a twit, she doesn’t realize that communist China and communist Russia have near-total control over their respective nations and their citizens – and remain gross polluters.

Bottom line…

I think the smug activist David Hogg, 21, should marry Thunberg and raise activist babies who spout meaningless babble along with copious amounts of other foul-smelling fluids from the time they are born.

We are so screwed when the media focuses on the easily-manipulated children with their packaged presentations and professionally prepared scripts. I wonder who is funding the annoying twit’s global tour.

REPUBLICANS SAVE THE BIDEN/PELOSI SPENDING BILL: 13 REPUBLICANS, 30 PIECES OF SILVER

PELOSI

Once again, a small number of Republicans defied the will of the people to jump the aisle and help advance the progressive communist democrat agenda.

Six of the most radical communists in Congress failed to coerce the Democrat Party to implement their anti-America agenda, threatening to vote against the Biden/Pelosi “Build Back Better” $1.2 TRILLION “infrastructure” spending bill. A bill that nobody in Congress has read and understands as the bill’s last-minute provisions are constantly changing. Had the Republicans voted together, the bill would have been defeated, and Biden and Pelosi would have been handed a deserved defeat.

H. R. 3684, the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act,” was approved 228-206 with 13 Republicans joining 215 Democrats, sending it to President Biden, who will be told to sign it or not get his afternoon ice cream cone.

Here are the six radical communist Democrats who upheld their threat and voted against the $1.2 TRILLION “Build Back Better” infrastructure bill… 

  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York
  • Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota
  • Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri
  • Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York
  • Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts
  • Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan

And there are the thirteen Republicans who screwed the nation, their constituents, and their party…

  • Rep. John Katko of New York
  • Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska
  • Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey
  • Rep. Don Young of Alaska
  • Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
  • Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
  • Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
  • Rep. Tom Reed of New York
  • Rep. Andrew Garbarino of New York
  • Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York
  • Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia
  • Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey

Even more egregious because the Democrat Party’s most radical communists were holding up a spending bill that does material damage to the United States, helps fund the opposition’s narratives and community organizers, and proves why we cannot trust the Republicans as the party of fiscal responsibility and the champion of freedom and liberty.

Bottom line…

It appears voting Republican is not enough. Some say that patriots must adopt the methods of the radical left – take to the streets with a massive display of civil disobedience. However, I believe that this movement is already underway as Americans are leaving their jobs or being fired for opposing the left’s vaccine mandate. The snarl in the supply chain will do the rest. That and the unvaccinated illegal aliens pouring into our nation to spread illiteracy, poverty, disease, and crime. 

We are so screwed.

MAKING HARVARD PAY "ITS FAIR SHARE"

Make top-level universities pay their fair share…

American Universities, mostly run by progressive communist democrats and their sympathizers, have been the beneficiaries of extremely liberal taxpayer money in the form of massive loan guarantees for large loans given to any student who appears to be breathing without any assessment of the 5 C’s of sound credit (character, capacity, collateral, capital, and conditions) or if the major is in a field that is likely to yield profitable employment in the future – leading to loan payback.

To my way of thinking, it is unconscionable for universities to continue raising their tuition and other expenses, knowing that it is the student on the hook for the entire amount – giving the university a free ride. How many administrators and professors receive salaries commensurate with top executives in the private sector with apparent comfort and ease, with few demands on their time – leading to highly profitable side hustles? Some get six figures to teach a single class per quarter.

So, now that the United States is experiencing financial difficulties, I believe it is more than equitable for universities with large endowments to assume the responsibility for the loan guarantees and be responsible for any defaults. The university would benefit from the interest paid on the loan or, in the case of protected classes such as minorities, forgo the interest and assume the opportunity costs associated with the funds. In addition, the university would curtail useless majors that leave the student highly educated but unemployed in an increasingly competitive world-- and massively in debt.

Yes, they can afford it…

endowments

And some more than others…

p-endow

You might notice that some of these “top” schools often produce the most radical students and their professors continue to crank out radical public policies that support the progressive communist agenda.

Even Harvard students are complaining, but for the wrong reasons…

Harvard students criticize $53B endowment as Ivy threatens cost-cutting

Harvard University may be the gold standard of Ivy League institutions, but its own students have accused it of using unethical and predatory practices to bolster its massive $53.2 billion endowment while threatening to slash jobs and deny workers a living wage.

[OCS: When social justice warriors encounter conservatives who ignore them, they turn on their own – forcing them to become even more aggressive to save their cushy jobs filled with political power, profits, perks, and privileges.

The administrators have become frightened of the very students they purport to teach.]

Harvard Management Company, which oversees the endowment, returned 33.6% on its investments for the fiscal year ending in June 2021. That’s an $11.3 billion increase from the previous year, which catapulted the endowment, already the largest in the world, to its largest sum in history.

Harvard’s subsequent victory lap over the money made during a pandemic and on the backs of consistently underpaid employees isn’t sitting well with students like Sophie Goldman.

“This ostentatious praise for the endowment’s growth (which was already larger than half the world’s economies) is not only in poor taste, but also morally wrong,” she wrote in the Harvard Crimson. “Despite this monumental financial gain of over $11 billion in the past year, the University continues to lower its budget allocated for essential workers, citing ‘continued financial pressure’ due to the pandemic.”

Before the fall 2021 semester began, Harvard proposed new dining schedules that threatened to cut the number of full-time dining employees by 20% and force an 8% reduction in total hours available.

Fearing the worst, UNITE HERE Local 26, the union representing dining employees, solicited support from students through flyers plastered all over campus.

[OCS: Behind most educational hustles, you find unions – one of the original sources of communist infiltration into the American capitalist system -- especially education. They want to use and benefit from capitalism while destroying the capitalist system.]

The flyers accuse Harvard of “using austerity politics to marginalize essential workers” after collecting a hefty sum in tuition during the pandemic and growing its endowment.

“At the same time, Harvard is pushing food service workers to the sidelines by slashing full-time jobs and cutting hours - even though more students are on campus than ever,” the flyer claimed.

Harvard President Lawrence S. Bacow has argued in the past that the university has “a legal and moral responsibility to maintain the purchasing power of the endowment so that it sustains future generations,” but critics claim 33.6% gains is much more than the “maintenance” Bacow has cited as a reason to cut costs. <Source>

[OCS: Harvard sustains itself, the students are simply a byproduct to be merchandised.]

Are taxpayer-funded schools accessing foreign money to teach students how to hate each other and their country?

A majority of American parents are unaware that China, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are among the top financiers of U.S. universities and are worried that foreign cash is influencing what their children are taught in the classroom, according to a recent poll. While extensive foreign funding of American universities has raised alarms in Congress and among advocacy groups such as the Lawfare Project, ordinary American parents are not aware of the issue.

This is partly because American schools do not publicly disclose their funding and in many cases try to hide their ties to adversarial nations like China. Foreign countries see the U.S. academic system as central to their propaganda efforts, including anti-Israel initiatives. In the case of countries such as China, they seek to steal cutting-edge research.

More than 80 percent of those surveyed said Congress should enact legislation requiring schools to publicly account for every foreign donation. Around 70 percent of those surveyed said they were concerned that foreign donations influence teaching and research priorities. <Source>

Bottom line…

There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that authorizes the federal government to interfere in the education of Americans, especially when such instruction amounts to un-American indoctrination in a toxic political ideology.

We are so screwed.

ONE CITIZEN SPEAKING: RANDOM MUSINGS

amerikid

While you are musing on the future and considering how many more illegal aliens will cross the border before the end of the year, here are some other things to consider.

Grunts have been punished for firing first at the enemy in a hostile combat situation… 

Pentagon Review Recommends No Disciplinary Action over Drone Strike that Killed 10 in Kabul

A Pentagon review concluded that a U.S. drone strike that killed ten civilians in the last days of the withdrawal from Afghanistan was not caused by misconduct or negligence, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

The review by Air Force Lt. Gen. Sami Said concluded that the strike occurred in spite of protocols meant to prevent civilian casualties, a senior defense official told the AP. Said found that the strike came while U.S. troops received multiple reports of threats, days after an ISIS suicide bomber killed 13 American service members and almost 200 Afghans at the Kabul airport. <Source>

Come to think about it, who was punished for ignoring the pleas of Americans under attack in Benghazi, Libya, and whatever happened to those seriously wounded who disappeared and were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements?

Energy shenanigans…

It appears that several political initiatives are designed to “incentivize” your behavior – allowing you to avoid penalties for following their orders. An example of this type of program is a tiered water system that charges additional fees and penalties for those who use more than their allotted amount of water per billing period.

We are now seeing proposals to do the same thing with electricity. It appears that Southern California Edison is proposing surcharges for energy consumed between 4 and 9 p.m. on weekdays. Of course, this is all presented to politicians in a clear and easy-to-understand format.

Customers receiving service under this Schedule will be charged the applicable rates under Option 4-9 PM, Option 4-9 PM-CPP, Option 5-8 PM, Option 5-8 PM-CPP, Option PRIME, Option PRIME-CPP Option A, Option A-CPP, Option B, or Option B-CPP, as listed below. CPP Event Charges will apply to all energy usage during CPP Event Energy Charge periods and CPP Non-Event Energy Credits will apply as a reduction on CPP Non-Event Energy Credit Periods during Summer Season weekdays, 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., as described in Special Conditions 1 and 3, below.

The hidden purpose of these programs was originally straightforward: delay the construction of needed facilities by reducing demand to juice (pun intended) profits to shareholders and generate unearned executive bonuses.

Of course, today’s reasoning is more sinister and politically nefarious as reduced demand is necessary to hide the failure of unreliable “green energy” that starts to disappear when the sun sets and winds stop blowing.

Since the energy providers are commanded and incentivized to continue increasing the proportion of green energy concerning fossil fuel generation, the problem is getting increasingly worse—all to satisfy the progressive communist democrats and the destruction of America’s energy capabilities. The truth is that if we stopped all industrial progress and non-green energy production, it would not affect the global climate one iota as China, India, and Russia ramp up dirty energy production.

And, while you weren’t looking, the purpose of those added carbon taxes to existing fossil fuels are not only to reduce their usage but to make the cost gap between existing and wildly expensive future green technologies appear to be more reasonable when they are, in fact, outrageous costs for unreliable power.

The progressive communist democrats want to steal your money…

Biden’s new 401(k) rule threatens to funnel workers’ retirement funds into ‘woke’ causes

A rule quietly proposed by the Biden administration would allow companies to consider factors such as climate change, diversity issues and even political donations when selecting employees’ 401(k) plans, potentially forcing workers to funnel some of their pay into woke causes.

The proposal explicitly directs retirement plan administrators and asset managers to consider environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors when selecting investments.

That would require retirement plan sponsors to give as much weight to a fund’s support of liberal causes, such as donating to Black Lives Matter or building wind turbines, as they do to financial returns.

The Labor Department rule makes clear that “climate change and other ESG factors are often material” and should be considered “in the assessment of risks and returns.”

It also rescinds a Trump-era rule that requires administrators and asset managers to offer investment options solely in the financial interests of participants. <Source>

How many people remember that California’s largest public employees pension fund invested in a number of companies with affiliations with the Communist Chinese People’s Liberation Army?

California Pension Fund Investment Chief Tied to China Resigns

The chief investment officer of the nation’s largest public pension fund resigned Wednesday amid controversy over his ties to a Chinese sovereign massive wealth fund.

The California Public Employees’ Retirement System—better known as CalPERS—manages about $360 billion and has been described as one of the most influential pension fund investors in the U.S. It said Wednesday that its chief investment officer, Yu “Ben” Meng, had stepped down from his position after less than two years on the job.

Meng’s appointment to the CIO slot was controversial from the start because he had most recently worked for China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), the country’s shadowy foreign-exchange and currency regulator that manages a $3 trillion investment fund.

Exactly what role Meng played as SAFE deputy chief investment officer is unclear, in large part because almost everything about SAFE is concealed behind a China Wall of secrecy. CalPERS did not respond to a request for more information about Meng, who managed a multi-million portfolio of assets for the pension fund before he went to SAFE. <Source>

It seems Hunter Biden is still walking free, as are members of the Biden crime family.

On being proud to be labeled a racist…

Hoping to capitalize on the power and negative connotation of the word “racist,” the progressive communist democrats have effectively re-defined the term to mean anyone who opposes the progressive communist democrat ideology of the moment. If you challenge their dogma, you are labeled a racist, bigot, or some flavor of ‘phobe in the hopes you will self-censor and shut up at the risk of negative media attention -- as if social media reflects reality. Yes, there is the risk of being canceled, censored, fact-checked, or de-platformed by those who claim to advocate free speech and the free exchange of ideas but who live in their upside-down Orwellian world.

Larry Sabato Disgraces Himself on MSNBC in Rant on Virginia Governor's Race

Professor and “political scientist” [at the University of Virginia Center for Politics] Larry Sabato, who we’ve been informed is a respectable and reliable pollster, proclaimed that the central issue in this contest was not education and the economy – which numerous polls show. It boiled down to one word, he alleged. “Race” or “white backlash, white resistance, whatever you want to call it.”

Larry Sabato campaigned for Terry McAuliffe at UVA in August, introducing him at a campaign event and "highlighting several achievements." <Source>

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Melts Down Over Youngkin Win: ‘Education’ Is Code For ‘White Parents Don’t Like The Idea Of Teaching About Race’

MSNBC’s Joy Reid went into meltdown mode on Tuesday night as Republicans scored upset victories in statewide elections in Virginia, at one point claiming that parents being concerned about “education” was really just “code for ‘white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race.’”

“The exit polls showed that, which was interesting, that the Coronavirus or that the virus was a very low importance to many voters,” Reid said. “It was ‘education,’ which is code for ‘white parents don’t like the idea of teaching about race.’ And I mean, unfortunately, race is just the most palpable tool in the toolkit, it used to be of the Democratic Party back in the day when they were Dixiecrats and now of the Republican Party.” <Source>

Did you notice that the mainstream media propagandists who serve the progressive communist democrats have little or nothing to say about the historic other election in Virginia? Along with Republican Glenn Youngkin, the voters elected other Republicans, including the First Black woman Lt. Governor, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares, the first Hispanic and first children of immigrants, as Attorney General. Not a peep about diversity or even well-qualified candidates.

The GOP’S 2022 success may depend on Glenn Youngkin’s achievements in Virginia…

A certain number of Democrats, independents, and minorities who were dissatisfied with the incompetent, inept, ineffectual, and lying Democrat Party joined the GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin in a significant blue state to give him and other top elected GOP officials the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to govern effectively and efficiently.

Now, with the whole nation watching, and despite progressive pushback and mainstream media propaganda, Youngkin and the GOP team must deliver – and more importantly, rise above the pushback and propaganda to allow others to see their progress.

There is little doubt that the progressive communist democrats will attempt to monopolize all channels of communication with cancellations and censorship and mount an internal resistance movement using entrenched bureaucrats and unions. 

Bottom line…

While it may look like a victory in Virginia, the pushback against the evil progressive communist democrats who are destroying America from within is just beginning.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER DEREK CHAUVIN WAS LYNCHED BY RACISTS AND THE MEDIA

Strong words, but true…

Consider that Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin went about his normal and customary police duties until responding to a call for assistance. Nothing that day portended the tragedy that was to follow – a life-altering tragedy that saw Chauvin vilified and imprisoned for the alleged murder of a criminal actively resisting arrest and already dying from a drug overdose and underlying medical complications.

Chauvin must be guilty because the progressive media told us so. A high-powered race-baiting attorney with a professional communications staff told us so. The community, roiling with racial discord and violence, told us so. The City of Minneapolis, with its premature multi-million dollar settlement, told us so. The State’s prosecutors told us so. The Jury told us so. And, the judge who sent Chauvin to prison told us so.

A single lawyer with a meager staff stood up against this onslaught of race-based lies and a racially-motivated opposition. Besieged with last-minute filings and adverse judicial rulings, dead tired but trying his best to defend Chauvin from lies, distortions, and prosecutorial malfeasance.

So, Derek Chauvin sits in prison, having done his duty and trying to subdue a resisting suspect. Operating in the moment, responding to circumstances, and being exploited by racially-motivated political activists and second-guessed by armchair lawyers who saw the orchestrated lynching led by 30th attorney general of Minnesota, Keith Ellison. Or should I call the admirer of white-hating, black segregationist Louis Farrakhan by his preferred name at the time, Keith X?

CHAUVIN

Now you can assist in righting this grievous wrong…

After numerous law firms and attorneys refused to assist Derek Chauvin to respond to a zealous, racially-motivated prosecution, a suspect judge, and a tainted jury, one law firm stepped forward,  Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, where partner Gregory M. Erickson represents Chauvin in the civil case and his partner, Bill Mohrman, will represent Chauvin in his appeal and acting a lead counsel. 

But he cannot do what needs to be done without backing. The resources to manage a million documents, engage experts when necessary, and fight a corrupt system with a racial bias against a police officer, corrupt prosecutors, and a public afraid of continuing riots led by professional agitators and the communist-infiltrated Black Lives Matter.

This is a critical juncture for Chauvin and his family. It is also a critical juncture for our nation and the righteous rule of law. 

I humbly beseech you to donate whatever you can to Chauvin’s legal defense fund. Knowing that you are up against a well-financed progressive movement and their race-baiting propagandists.

https://givesendgo.com/chauvinlegaldefense

Bottom line…

Like the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” meme, much of what you have been told has been filtered by the racially-motivated progressive propagandists in the corrupt mainstream media. If nothing else, Derek Chauvin deserves another trial away from a racially-charged environment, scared witnesses and jurors, a community living in fear of organized racial violence led by professionally-trained agitators. Please help.

https://givesendgo.com/chauvinlegaldefense

If there were such a thing as justice, I believe Chauvin would be released from jail, similarly compensated by the Minneapolis City Council, and given a public apology. While we all know that this is unlikely to happen as the racists double-down to demonstrate they were right, may Derek Chauvin get the trial he deserved in the first place?

Thank you.

DID YOUNGKIN WIN IN VIRGINIA?

The election is not over until the election lawyers challenge every rejected vote in Democrat precincts…

McAuliffe Hires Marc Elias, the Left’s Most Toxic Legal General

Elias is infamous for using outlandish and racist legal arguments to contest GOP election victories and change election laws to benefit Democrats. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic candidate for Virginia governor and once the top fundraiser for the Clintons, would turn in desperation to Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer to possibly contest next Tuesday’s election. Marc Elias is the legal mastermind most responsible for the left-wing push to subvert our democracy, overturn elections, and destroy election integrity.  <Source>

mcauliffe

I guess some Virginians may not like…

  • Masks and mandates.
  • Higher taxes.
  • Negation of parental rights.
  • Critical race theory.
  • Alien invasions.

Bottom line…

Don't forget Virginia is a primarily Democrat state, populated with many government workers, and McAuliffe was supposed to win by at least an 8-point margin. His Republican challenger, Glenn Youngkin, was a virtual unknown with a primarily self-funded campaign. Against McAuliffe's near 100% name recognition, $50 million in Democrat funding, and almost total mainstream media support. The race will be close; hence the election attorneys are lounging in the backroom.

I was hoping for a FINAL Youngkin victory and a repudiation of progressive communist democrat ideology.

We are so screwed.

THE HIDDEN COST OF BIDEN'S SURRENDER OF AFGHANISTAN

biden

By now, almost everybody knows the obvious conditions and ramifications of President Joe Biden’s traitorous mismanagement of the United States’ precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The Biden Department of State and the highly-politicized military senior command staff lacked a coherent, competent, and coordinated plan for the withdrawal -- with decisions driven by political considerations, including artificial deadlines and the White House demand for media-friendly optics. Due to President Biden’s obvious mental impairment, it is unclear who was in charge and what orders were actually issued.

American citizens and Afghans, who aided the United States mission at great personal risk to themselves and their families, were abandoned behind enemy lines to be hunted, captured, tortured, killed – of if lucky, ransomed by Taliban warlords that now comprise the “legitimate” Afghan government.

The United States military effectively armed a force hostile to America by abandoning billions of dollars of sophisticated weaponry, communications devices, and strategic intelligence which can be sold or traded to our other enemies.

The United States sacrificed a fortified, easily defendable base from which they could project power in the region – at minimal personnel costs. A move that would have reinforced the resilience of the Afghan Army.

But what most people don’t know is that the Biden team gave up substantial deposits of lithium carbonate, which the Communist Chinese can use to a competitive advantage in the lithium battery business behind the massive green agenda. A marketplace they can dominate with transactions priced in Yuan and not U.S.-backed reserve currency.

The Communist Chinese control 70% or more of the world's supply of lithium carbonate. Much of which is mined in occupied Tibet. It is no wonder that the Chinese supported the Taliban, which is still begging for U.S. funding while allowing the Chinese to develop and mine the world’s largest untapped supply of lithium carbonate – along with other rare earth metals.

With the Biden Administration’s control of the energy marketplace and moving to outlaw fossil fuel vehicles – the value of lithium carbonate may be the next generation’s gusher. When the Afghanistan lithium supply becomes a reality, China’s global market share is projected to exceed 90%. It appears that the Chinese have also bought substantial stakes in lithium deposits located in other countries and even lithium carbonate deposits found in Greenland.

Why you may ask, is the United States not protecting itself against China’s dominance in this critical resource that is behind modern electronics and energy storage?

Could the progressive communist democrats embedded deeply in the Department of the Interior (DOI) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) prevent access to U.S. public lands in Arkansas, California, Nevada, North Carolina, and Utah containing lithium carbonate and other rare earth minerals?

Could it be that the communist-dominated environmental movement is working hand-in-hand with these agencies?  And, even if mining activities are occurring on American soil, allowing the foreign ownership of the mining companies held through opaque corporate entities.

Let us not forget that Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, and others in the Obama administration facilitated the sale of approximately 20- percent of U.S. uranium production capacity to Russia. With Bill Clinton pocketing millions and the Clinton Foundation over $100 million. Why the Clintons were not prosecuted for their involvement in the Uranium One scandal speaks to the power of progressive communist democrats.

China Dominates the Global Lithium Battery Market

In 2019, Chinese chemical companies accounted for 80 percent of the world’s total output of raw materials for advanced batteries. China controls the processing of pretty much all the critical minerals–rare earth, lithium, cobalt, and graphite. Of the 136 lithium-ion battery plants in the pipeline to 2029, 101 are based in China.

China is among the five top countries with the most lithium resources and it has been buying stakes in mining operations in Australia and South America where most of the world’s lithium reserves are found. China’s Tianqi Lithium owns 51 percent of the world’s largest lithium reserve in Australia. In 2018, the company became the second-largest shareholder in Sociedad Química y Minera—the largest lithium producer in Chile. Another Chinese company, Ganfeng Lithium, has a long-term agreement to underwrite all lithium raw materials produced by Australia’s Mount Marion mine—the world’s second-biggest, high-grade lithium reserve.

With Biden’s plans, the United States will be dependent again on key minerals for its energy system and this time the dependency will be with one country—China.  According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the United States imported 78 percent of its cobalt, and all of its graphite in 2019.

It could take 20 to 30 years for the United States to catch up with China. It could also entail the development of new mines in the United States, which have historically been opposed by the same environmental groups and politicians who have urged the United States to electrify its vehicle fleet. It is clear that electrification of the U.S. economy and its transportation system will mean the “Chinafication” of these important parts of our economy. <Source>

Bottom line…

With each advancing day, Joe Biden and his crime family – along with the Clintons – slip farther and farther away from accountability. President Trump was impeached on phony quid pro quo charges of the type Biden confessed to on a recorded program. The Clinton’s crimes are well enumerated, but the progressive communist democrats control our intelligence and law enforcement agencies and they appear immune from prosecution.

The Democrat Party sells our nation, piece by piece, while the feckless and impotent GOP looks on.

Time for some real leadership before we are screwed beyond the point of no return.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM EXPLAINED

There is little or no doubt in my mind that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is a squishy RINO (Republican In Name Only) whose propensity for aisle-hopping and furthering the progressive communist democrat agenda mirrors that of his mentor, the late Senator John McCain.

For a time, I wondered if Graham was being covertly coerced over the subject of his ambiguous sexuality? For a time, I thought he was a progressive communist democrat in disguise.

Now, according to Graham’s own explanation, it is far worse than I thought.

Lindsey Graham breaks with most Republican colleagues by supporting Biden judicial nominees

The South Carolina senator has voted in favor of nearly all of Biden's judicial picks

With Democrats controlling the Senate, it comes as no surprise that President Biden has successfully nominated dozens of federal judges, but nearly all of those picks enjoyed the support of a high-profile Republican: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Graham, who until January was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, voted in favor of all but three of Biden’s picks who have gone before the full Senate for votes. In two of those cases he did not vote at all, and he voted no in just one.

In a political environment that has become highly polarized – particularly when it comes to presidential nominations – Graham’s approach to judicial nominations harkens back to earlier times when judges were approved based on qualifications instead of ideologies. 

[OCS: It is a demonstrable fact that evil individuals can be wellborn, highly educated, well-experienced, extremely successful AND STILL BE EVIL or promoting an EVIL ideology.]

"When the president wins the White House, they have the right to pick the judges of their choosing," a member of Graham's office told Fox News, stating that the senator "believes the constitutional and historical standards are what should be used for judges."

The Republican Graham voted to confirm both Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, even though "he did not agree with them," they added. "Only in the most unusual circumstances should you vote against a nominee."

Graham recalled how Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose death resulted in the vacancy filled by Barrett, was confirmed by a vote of 96-3. Despite already having a reputation as a liberal "icon," Graham recalled that "just about every Republican voted for her. Similarly, he noted that the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia received even more votes.

The Senate ultimately confirmed Barrett with a vote of 52-48.

"I don’t know what happened between then and now," Graham said at Barrett’s hearing, admitting that "we can all take some blame."

"But I just want to remind everybody," he continued, "that there was a time in this country where someone like Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen by almost everybody as qualified for the position of being on the Supreme Court, understanding that she would have a different philosophy than many of the Republicans who voted for her."

[OCS: Graham’s fundamental lack of understanding of the Senate’s Advice and Consent role is surprising given he is a former JAG lawyer.

One can be “well qualified,” but supportive of an ideology that pursues an un-American, un-Constitutional agenda that foresees the radical transformation of America or the destruction of our Constitution.

To this extent, supporting the nomination of these candidates is tantamount to abandoning your Oath of Office to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”]

Graham is not the only Republican to support nearly every judicial selection. Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski have also voted in favor of almost everyone.<Source>

Bottom line…

Like progressive communist democrats, Lindsey Graham cannot be trusted with the safety and security of the United States. He should be stripped of all committee assignments and consigned to a small office in the basement.

To the extent that Lindsey Graham and other Republicans do not recognize that the fundamental nature of the Democrat Party has changed and that it is infiltrated with socialists, communists, and crazies, is not to recognize that our nation is facing a clear and present danger from within. And if good and righteous men and women do not stand up now, our nation is doomed.

We are so screwed.

VIRGINIA’S GLENN YOUNGKIN GETS MASSIVE ENDORSEMENT…

MCA

What better endorsement can Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin get than having that traitorous piece of shit, former Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, endorse his corrupt, sleazy Democrat opponent Terry McAuliffe?

The largest group of progressive veterans in America, VoteVets, is today making an historic endorsement of Terry McAuliffe to once again be Governor of Virginia. It is the first time the group has endorsed a military family member for office.

“As the son of an Army veteran and the dad of a Marine, Terry McAuliffe knows what it means to be in a military family, what challenges they face, and the sacrifices they make,” said Alexander Vindman, Senior Advisor to VoteVets. “Virginia is home to over 100,000 servicemembers, and they’ll have no greater advocate than Terry, because he’s been where they are, right now.”

“But, this election is about so much more than our military families — it is about the survival of our very country,” Vindman added.  “I have seen Trumpism up close, and I have seen how its aim is to systematically destroy the very fabric of the Republic. Glenn Youngkin is Donald Trump’s agent in Virginia — period. A vote for Youngkin is a vote for Trump, and a vote for Youngkin is a vote to ensure that Donald Trump gets Virginia’s electoral votes in 2024.We must protect our Republic and our right to our vote. We must elect Terry McAuliffe.” <Source>

[OCS: Notice how McAuliffe, who served as the 72nd governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018, cannot run on his own  record or that of the failing Biden Administration? All he can do is point the finger at Youngkin and yell Trump at the top of his voice. Notice how they do not talk about McAuliffe’s role as Clinton’s bag-man and the Communist Chinese money flowing to the Clintons? Not a word about the FBI investigation of McAuliffe "over whether donations to his gubernatorial campaign violated the law. One example cited was a $120,000 donation from Chinese businessman Wang Wenliang.” Or the unprecedented payment to Andrew McCabe’s wife who received $675,000 from two McAuliffe-connected entities for her first political race – while her husband was the Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigating matters relating to Hillary Clinton.]

vindman(Aleksandr Semyonovich Vindman, born in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.)

Vindman is billed as a Senior Advisor to VoteVets, a 501(c)(4) organization that ostensibly focuses on nonpartisan education and advocacy on behalf of Veterans and their families. Funny how their main supports always seem to flow to the progressive communist democrats. Of course, they openly acknowledge that their “VoteVets PAC and VoteVets Action Fund have been the home for progressive veterans, military families, and their civilian supporters for over 15 years.”

Wonder how their members feel about Vindman selling out his country in favor of Ukraine, including stabbing the Commander-in-Chief in the back and speaking disparagingly of senior command?

Wonder how they feel about the White House punks and State Department wonks overriding sound military protocols and leaving American citizens behind enemy lines to be hunted, captured, tortured, and killed by the Taliban. Giving their enemies not only a vote but the keys to the city and billions of dollars worth of military equipment and a literal fortune in military intelligence?

Bottom line…

Scum coagulates and rises to the top of the pond, where it contaminates everything it touches – much like the progressive communist democrats.

Save American – vote Youngkin. And if the Republicans take the House, that the Intelligence Committee’s actions concerning the liar, leaker Representative Adam Schiff, the phony “whistleblower,” and Vindman are exposed for the world to see the depth of his traitorous actions – while Joe Biden bragged about his quid pro quo in a recorded confession made in public.

We are so screwed.

HALLOWEEN: SCARY TIMES IN AMERICA

Something scary is happening in America…

Progressive communist democrats are infecting hordes of zombies acting as useful idiots to spread disease, pestilence, and despair throughout the land. 

Beyond bending the U.S. Constitution, governors are using temporary state emergency powers to unconstitutionally restrict inalienable rights – first, in the name of public health; and second, in the name of preventing a planetary catastrophe from global climate change.

The elite poohbahs and their propagandists are spewing out misinformation and disinformation at an alarming rate – including censoring contrarian views of their narratives. It seems the experts are not that smart, or if they are, they lack commonsense.

Meanwhile, back at the White House bunker…

Vampires and corrupt politicians die in the sunlight.
