THE FALSE TRAYVON MARTIN NARRATIVE CONTINUES...

I find it appalling that New York magazine would produce a 59-page special section honoring a black thug, Trayvon Martin, as if he were a civil rights martyr and repeating many of the media-concocted falsehoods of the day.

Tvm

“On February 26, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, because as a Black boy walking in a gated community, he was deemed “suspicious.” Zimmerman’s acquittal appalled a nation often willfully blind to the vulnerability of living while Black. Ten years later, “Black Lives Matter” has grown from a hashtag to a protester’s cry to a cultural force that has reshaped American politics, society, and daily life. It is, at the same time, a specific collection of organizations and people whose decisions have attracted both applause and criticism; whose actions have been a source of intrigue; whose personal relationships have both strengthened and splintered under the stress and exposure. This special issue attempts to tell the story of the first decade of Black Lives Matter, the movement — as well as the country it moved.” <Source>

The truth is uncomplicated.

Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old thug with a history of theft and thuggery, was observed by a neighborhood watch member, George Zimmerman, behaving suspiciously (walking between houses) in a gated community that experienced break-ins and property thefts. It appears that Zimmerman did everything right and notified the police. While the police were en route, Martin chose to violently confront an armed Zimmerman who, while fighting on the ground and fearing for his life, shot and killed Martin.

However, seeking a sensational story, the media crafted a false scenario of an armed white wannabe police officer attacking an innocent black teenager. Add the black activists and their bullhorns, the media echo chamber, and a decade of rioting ensued.

Bottom line…

The Trayvon Martin story is not worth telling, nor is the persecution, not prosecution, of George Zimmerman, other than to say that it was a dishonest media and black activists who turned a criminal-citizen encounter into a racial statement. If anything. Zimmerman, whose life was destroyed, was the real victim – followed by a public subjected to falsehoods, riots, and mayhem.

This is what happens when the narrative replaces the news. Something that is increasingly destroying our nation.

We are so screwed.

WILL PANDERING POLITICIANS BACK AN AFFIRMATIVE ACTION SUPREME COURT NOMINEE?

What is affirmative action, and should it be applied to the United States Supreme court?

“Affirmative Action,” is a politically-crafted term thought to have been first used on March 6, 1961, in Executive Order 10925 by President John F. Kennedy. It was designed to redress inequalities of systemic discrimination based on race, creed, color, or national origin.

WHEREAS discrimination because of race, creed, color, or national origin is contrary to the Constitutional principles and policies of the United States; and 13 CFR 1960 Supp.

WHEREAS it is the plain and positive obligation of the United States Government to promote and ensure equal opportunity for all qualified persons, without regard to race, creed, color, or national origin, employed or seeking employment with the Federal Government and on government contracts; and

WHEREAS it is the policy of the executive branch of the Government to encourage by positive measures equal opportunity for all qualified persons within the Government; and

WHEREAS it is in the general interest and welfare of the United States to promote its economy, security, and national defense through the most efficient and effective utilization of all available manpower; and

WHEREAS a review and analysis of existing Executive orders, practices, and government agency procedures relating to government employment and compliance with existing non-discrimination contract provisions reveal an urgent need for expansion and strengthening of efforts to promote full equality of employment opportunity; and

WHEREAS a single governmental committee should be charged with responsibility for accomplishing these objectives:

NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and statutes of the United States, it is ordered as follows:

PART I—ESTABLISHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT'S COMMITTEE ON EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

SECTION 101. There is hereby established the President's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity.

It is little more than reverse racism that demands that we punish one identity class to benefit another identity class to redress historical and systemic wrongs. In essence, overriding education, experience, and merit to base decisions on identity characteristics.

Now expanded to include gender and sexual origination, this political construct is dishonest trickery that purports to provide equal opportunities to designated minorities in the general population. Made even more intellectually dishonest by those positing that identity is a mutable construct that can be self-determined at will. 

Joe Biden is deliberately violating equal opportunity for ALL qualified persons by eliminating qualified individuals by race and gender…

Can Biden’s judicial nomination process be judicially reviewed by the Supreme Court? Probably not because it involves separation of powers issues and an inherent conflict of interest among Court members. But the Senate can be held accountable for confirming an unqualified candidate or one who does not appear to be a neutral arbiter of the Constitution of the United States.

The Founding Fathers never envisioned a nine-member ruling body…

We live in a world where nine, at least for now, unelected political appointees whose decisions can determine the course of our nation as well as individual lives. Unfortunately, the Court has become highly politicized and polarized, in such a manner that the Justices now ignore or torture the very Constitution they are sworn to protect and defend. Without personal consequences, the Justices can essentially usurp the role of both the Executive and Legislative branches of government.

Now we have a President who appears to be cognitively impaired, openly declaring that the superficialities of color and sex trump knowledge, experience, and competence.

Even though the appointment of another liberal justice, even one farther to the left of the existing Court's liberals, is unlikely to tip the Court’s overall ideological balance, it is a bad precedent from a President who defines the meaning of bad precedents. An openly corrupt President that cannot think or speak coherently on matters of state and who requires omnipresent minders to, literally, clean up after him.

Bottom line…

Hold your state’s Senators responsible if they promote Joe Biden’s racism and his nomination for the Supreme Court. Especially Senator Lindsey Graham, who believes all Presidents should be able to select nominees of their choice and have them confirmed. Let us not forget that it was the preening and pontificating Graham who confirmed a radical liberal -- Sotomayor -- to the bench and announced that the Senate should give great deference to a President's judicial nominees.

Lg

Lindsey Graham said nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court would make it 'look more like America,' not affirmative action

"Put me in the camp of making sure the court and other institutions look like America," the senator said. "You know, we make a real effort as Republicans to recruit women and people of color to make the party look more like America. Affirmative action is picking somebody not as well qualified for past wrongs." <Source>

[OCS: I cannot help but wonder if the politically-powerful corrupt, racist, communist, James Clyburn (D-SC), has Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) by the cojones?]

The purpose of the Court is not to look like America; it is to be a neutral arbiter of the Constitution and disagreements between the states and use its power of judicial review, ensuring that each branch of government recognizes the limits of its own power. It is the Court of last resort for administering blind justice.

We are so screwed.

MASSIVE CALIFORNIA DISABILITY BENEFIT PROVDER FRAUD

Yesterday, I received an official notice from the California Employment Development Department (EDD) with the disheartening news, “Notice of Benefit Suspension – Medical Provider Verification Required.”

MEDSCAM

The notice states, “We are currently reviewing your Disability Insurance Claim for medical provider verification. Disability claims are not completed until all requirements are satisfied, including establishing medical eligibility through a physician/practitioner certificate signed by a duly licensed provider.”

The notice goes on to say, “This impacts your disability claim: * If you have not received any disability benefits on this claim, we can’t begin making payments until your medical provider is verified. * If you have been receiving disability benefits, we have temporarily suspended your benefits until your medical provider is verified.”

Disheartening news because I am not eligible for Disability Insurance and have never filed a claim for disability benefits.

Even more disheartening because EDD acknowledges…

EDD Weeds Out Disability Insurance Scammers, Verifies Legitimate Medical Providers

EDD continues to confirm that most of the suspect disability insurance medical provider accounts it flagged as suspicious were fraud attempts. The few providers that were not fraud—but instead victims of identity theft—are completing verification along with their patients to then resume certifying claims.

Most disability insurance claimants in California were not impacted by this scam and EDD has continued to pay approximately $150 million a week in benefits to legitimate claimants. Similarly, most California medical providers who certify disability insurance claims were not victimized by scammers and subject to the additional verification procedures at this time.

To date, EDD has confirmed that approximately 98 percent of the 27,000 medical provider accounts it initially flagged as suspicious were likely fraudulent. Specifically, 485 providers have verified their identity at this point and the rest did not.

Scam Warnings and Enhanced Online Fraud Reporting
With identity theft remaining a pervasive threat nationwide and globally, EDD has continued to issue consumer scam alerts throughout the pandemic that warn about cell phone and email phishing schemes designed to steal personal information. Californians who receive suspicious cell phone or email phishing communications can report those scam attempts to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at www.ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Phishing emails can be forwarded to the FTC’s Anti-Phishing Working Group at reportphishing@apwg.org and phishing text messages can be forwarded to the FTC at 7726.

EDD posts information about how Californians can guard against identity theft and report fraudulent activity on its Help Fight Fraud webpage. EDD also upgraded its AskEDD website tool to smooth the fraud reporting process and make it more user friendly. This includes custom fraud reporting for medical providers who suspect someone may be using their credential to attempt to certify fake disability insurance claims. After a fraud report is submitted, the victim or fraud reporter receives a report confirmation number. <Source>

Fraud on a massive scale. Is it incompetence or by design?

State auditor blasts EDD for bungling California unemployment crisis

The California State Auditor issued a scathing report Tuesday on the EDD's disastrous response to a surge in unemployment claims during the pandemic. The report says the mistakes by the EDD opened the door to rampant fraud, forcing millions of workers to struggle for benefits. Not only that, millions may have to pay back benefits they got by mistake. The report says EDD knew for 10 years it wasn't ready for a disaster - and when the pandemic hit, sure enough, the system buckled.

The audit said EDD started waiving eligibility checks to speed up the claims. That opened the door for rampant fraud. EDD admitted it has paid at least $11 billion dollars to fraudsters - but it's possible another $20 billion also was paid to scammers. <Source>

No excuses!

The single biggest problem we see with the handling of government money is that government bureaucrats are not held responsible for behaviors and results that would be unacceptable in the private sector. No matter how large their failure, top-level bureaucrats move to other positions or retire on overly generous pensions. Contractors that provide faulty systems rebate approximately 15% of their fees – often built-in as the cost of doing business.

Bottom line…

Notice this was not an individual fraudulent claim that was flagged but a provider account that could handle thousands of fraudulent claims.

Californians are screwed as billions of dollars wash through the system, and few wonder where they wind up.

THE FOUL TASTE OF PENZEYS SPICES

What would possess the CEO of a prosperous small business to openly defame a portion of his customer base by referring to them as “racists” and spreading partisan lies in a promotional email?

Penzey1

Bill Penzey of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices used Martin Luther King Jr. Day to slander Republicans and promote Black Lives Matter, a communist front organization, with their “Republicans are Racist Weekend” sale – promising to “cheese off racists” and provide Black Lives Matter stickers with every purchase.

Among Penzey’s musings …

“Remember how Republicans did all they could to derail that success by trying to drown out BLM’s message with shouts of all lives matter, and blue lives matter, and lying about the leaders of BLM being Marxists and Communists?”

[OCS: I wonder if Penzey has taken note of history where the Democrats were the party of slavery, segregation, racism, Jim Crow, the KKK, and fought against civil rights legislation? It should be a given: ALL LIVES MATTER, INCLUDING POLICE LIVES THAT MAKE OUR COMMUNITIES SAFER. The leadership of BLM openly admitted they were “trained Marxists” and therefore supported communism.]

“Remember how Republicans, going against a mountain of evidence to the contrary, once again lied and said BLM wasn’t a peaceful movement, but instead terrorists inciting violence throughout the country and then raced out to buy a crapload of guns because maybe they were finally going to get their chance to shoot a Black person?

[OCS: There is sworn testimony, documentary evidence, and hours of recorded acts of destruction and violence to prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that BLM was little more than a domestic terrorist organization. You cannot blame ordinary, law-abiding citizens for purchasing firearms to defend their God-given right of self-defense after watching their cities burn and innocent citizens killed. Historically, most black deaths have occurred at the hands of black criminals, crazies, and terrorists. One need only ask, how many black lives could have been saved if a criminal surrendered peaceably to law enforcement when apprehended?]

“The Racist label is one you will deservingly wear every day you stand with them.”

[OCS: One of the hallmarks of the progressive communist democrats is their embrace of “projection,” ascribing their behavior and activities to their opposition.]

“If you believe in vaccines, all the goodness set in motion each time we say Black Lives Matter, and knocking on every door possible before 11.8.22 to turn out every last vote to save our democracy, we would be better off with you on our mailing list.”

[OCS: The issue is not whether you believe in vaccines, but if you can trust the government to tell you the truth – especially when they appeared to have lied about the definition of a vaccine, its efficacy, and the transmissibility of Covid-19 by vaccinated people?]

It appears that Penzey’s Spices spent more than $700,000 on Facebook ads promoting the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Bottom line…

Is Penzey looking to get an ambassadorship? A government contract? Or is he simply a dumb son of a bitch who drank the progressive communist democrat Kool-Aid?

If our Democracy is at risk, it is from the foot soldiers of communism and useful idiots like Bill Penzey.

We are so screwed.

WHAT DOES "THE GREAT RESET" MEAN?

What is “The Great Reset?”

Basically, “The Great Reset” is little more than erasing the “historical record” that provides a traditional context for decision-making to protect the plans, prescriptions, and powerplays of the elites from being summarily dismissed as evil, unworkable, or too expensive in terms of a return on investment. The history that highlights bad ideas, bad actors, and the glaring failures of the past, which reflects poorly on recycled ideas.

GREAT-RESET

Who is behind “The Great Reset?”

The World Economic Forum, an elite international non-governmental lobbying organization based in Switzerland, is promoting its “The Great Reset initiative.”

[OCS: When elite organizations gather wealthy, powerful, and politically-connected individuals to improve society, what they are really doing is crafting a narrative that can be used by their sponsors and membership to justify their own agendas and self-interests. In essence, this is the broad outline of a loosely-coupled conspiracy where organizations and individuals need not conspire individually to move in the same direction. That direction is almost always targeted to keeping the elites in power and generating profits.]

THE CONTEXT
The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making.

[OCS: Hat tip to former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel who famously said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

There is no doubt that public and private organizations have used the pandemic caused by the Chinese Communist Virus to strengthen their power and profits. In most cases, media-generated panic has allowed a relaxation in the critical thinking that stops evildoers from doing things that would normally be questioned and rejected outright.]

The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.

[OCS: Inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions are the natural consequences of competing interests and evildoers – many flaws deliberately built into the system by lawyers and politicians responding to their respective special interests. Leaders are preoccupied with staying in power, feathering their own nests, rewarding their friends, and punishing their enemies.]

THE OPPORTUNITY
As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons.

[OCS: There is always an opportunity to improve your life, your community, and your nation. The the future state of global relations will always involve conflict between competing interests, especially over scarce natural resources. The inherent conflict between capitalism, socialism/communism, and theocratic religions like Islam insure a world in perpetual conflict. The only global common goal is remaining in power and keeping profits flowing.]

Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honors the dignity of every human being. <Source>

[OCS: Spare me the rhetoric about the vision and expertise of our leadership. The very same individuals and organizations who have brought us to this sad state of affairs and the edge of the abyss are the same ones now telling us to trust them to find a solution and provide the leadership we so desperately need.

As for mentions of “human dignity,” these are often codewords for a society based, not on merit, but identity classes and its inherent class conflicts. There is no way to equalize the differences between the strong and weak, the rich and poor, and those who can process information faster than others without imposing an artificial scheme based on authoritarian rule.]

Misinformation…

As part of “The Great Reset,” we are seeing an effort to wipe out “misinformation,” which is defined as any information those in power dislike. The powerful public and private institutions censor information or cancel individuals and sources presenting contrarian information or alternative viewpoints. In many cases, publicly shaming individuals in the media to encourage self-censorship.

The Bottom Line…

Look around you. The progressive communist democrats redefine words and concepts with previously common understandings and meanings. Institutions are being renamed. Statues destroyed. Books abandoned. The media moguls are substituting entertainment for education, and the tech tyrants are using psychological tricks to increase your engagement with easily controlled electronic devices. And we are being deceived daily.

Truth be told, The Great Reset is little more than the erasure of history to promote a progressive communist democrat agenda.

We are being screwed.

AMERICANS: IS THE UKRAINE MORE IMPORTANT THAN AMERICA?

Accidently saying the truth out loud...

Finer-ukraine

America’s Southern border with Mexico is wide open, with hundreds of thousands of illegals are being admitted into the USA without vetting for criminal backgrounds or active diseases.

Increasing inflation is about to cripple the middle class, and so is the price of food, housing, and energy. Like the adverse effects of a toxic immigration policy, we are also experiencing the results of a poisonous energy policy. On the foreign front, we find problems with China, Russia, Iran, North Korea – and yet we are told we must focus on Ukraine.

Why? Once again, we see the progressive communist democrats trying to deflect America’s attention from their horrible domestic and foreign public policies. 

It is almost a certainty that the drastic and damaging policies implemented by the progressive communist democrats, often illegally, will be reflected in the 2022 and 2024 election cycles --  probably resulting in a transfer of power in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Anything that can reduce the impact of the public’s response is seen as a benefit to the Democrat Party, even if it means a low-level conflict with Russia.

Why would you trust Joe Biden and the Obamacons…

From sworn testimony and documentary evidence, we saw that the Obama/Biden White House was interfering in the internal politics of Ukraine, not to mention lining their pockets with illegal activities centered around selling access to government officials and lobbying decision-makers. How can you trust a President Biden whose family has sold access to his office in China, Russia, Ukraine, and other countries willing to engage Biden family members – who lack any relevant knowledge and experience in anything other than laundering money?

Bottom line…

Why would we spend our blood and treasure defending Ukraine’s borders but not the United States’ borders? The answer is that the progressive communist democrats will do or say anything to gain or maintain political power.

We are so screwed.

L.A. VOTERS: A "FEEL GOOD" WEB SITE?

While it is nice to see when your ballot was mailed and returned, it is relatively meaningless unless you can verify it was you that returned the ballot, the ballot choices you made were recorded accurately, and the valid vote was correctly totaled.

STEAL-THE-VOTE-1

Unfortunately, President Joe Biden said the silent part out loud, "The struggle's no longer just who gets to vote, or making it easier for eligible people to vote, it's about who gets to count the vote and whether your vote counts at all."

What do you know about the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk for Los Angeles County Dean Logan?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bottom line…

Unless we investigate the past elections, cure the faults, punish those that interfered with the election or compromised the vote, we no longer can rely on voter integrity.

Ask yourself why the progressive communist democrats who govern California and Los Angeles fight against voter identification and transparency? Why do they want everyone to vote by mail – passing votes through uncontrolled union employees or left in anonymous drop boxes? Why do they demand that all votes be accepted regardless of their source – even if the voter cannot be authenticated or authentication procedures are relaxed or bypassed altogether? Why are they fighting forensic audits?

Democrats are incapable of protecting the safety and security of the United States. They are more interested in the sovereignty and borders of Ukraine than they are in American sovereignty and borders. They have mucked up the economy and brought us to record inflation. And they cannot be trusted to manage our elections.

We are so screwed

BREYER'S REPLACEMENT: AFFIRMATIVE ACTION ON DISPLAY

Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer to leave the Court…

By now, almost everybody has heard that Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, the oldest member of the Court at 83, has announced that he will retire at the end of the current Supreme Court term, after 27 years on the Court.

As one of the Court’s most progressive members, along with Associate Justices Kagan and Sotomayor, there is no doubt that Breyer will be replaced by a Biden nominee who is, at least, as progressive or possibly even more progressive than Breyer.

While it won’t tip the Court's ideological balance, it does make a mockery of the idea that Supreme Court Justices are unbiased arbiters of the U.S. Constitution and disputes between the States.

“We the People” are about to be screwed once again…

BIDEN-JUSTICE

Instead of choosing one of the best and brightest jurists with a record of outstanding jurisprudence, we are likely to find Biden’s choice reflects the progressive communist democrat’s support of identity politics. Where color, ethnicity, and gender trump knowledge and competence.

Let the speculation begin…

Since Biden declared that his first Supreme Court nominee would be a black woman during his 2020 campaign, his choices appear to be limited. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki: “The president has stated and reiterated his commitment to nominating a black woman to the Supreme Court and certainly stands by that.”

The ultimate horror scenario – Biden solves many of his problems by nominating an incompetent, feckless, cackling Kamala Harris to the position. Her legal qualifications are marginal, but she is bi-racial and a declared woman. With the Vice President slot empty, Biden appoints the next President of the United States as he is likelyto step down prior to the end of his term. 

The unthinkable…

Biden nominates an Asian-American with familial ties to the Communist Chinese Party.

Almost as bad  -- Stacy Abrams, the boisterous racist who believes she is Georgia’s legitimate governor. Her sister, Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner,  is said to be the better nominee and appears to be in the mix.

More traditional nominees…

  • US Circuit Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, 51 – she replaced Merrick Garland, now the US attorney general, and her position usually is on the path to the Supreme Court. Considering the wide dislike of Garland, she may end up as our next Attorney General if she is not appointed to the Court. Her previous confirmation hearing was supported by RINO Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
  • US District Court Judge J. Michelle Childs, 55 – said to be the favorite of Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) the Majority Whip and the third-ranking Democrat in the United States House of Representative.
  • California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger, 45 – an accomplished jurist.
  • Sherrilyn Ifill, 59 -- the outgoing head of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and a nationally recognized expert on voting rights and judicial selection. Like the late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg who came from the ACLU, her progressive credentials are impeccable.

Lesser names floated by partisan groups…

  • Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner – the Stacy Abrams choice.
  • Circuit Judge Eunice Lee – a Chuck Schumer favorite.
  • Circuit Judge Candace Jackson-Akiwumi – A Dick Durbin favorite from corrupt Chicago.
  • District Judge Wilhelmina "Mimi" Wright – an Amy Klobuchar favorite.
  • Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) – not black.
  • California Attorney General Xavier Becerra – neither black nor female.

Bottom line…

Funny, Biden's exclusionary policy limiting nominees to a specific color and gender would be illegal under employment law.  Again, the progressive communist Democrats want to impose their toxic ideology on the Supreme Court. This is a dangerous time when the progressive communist Democrats openly eliminate Whites, Jews, Asians, Hispanics, and others from the selection pool and consideration on qualifications alone.

What the progressive communist Democrats really want is a communist activist who is fine with disrespecting the Constitution and the destruction of America from within. Even though the media will label them "moderates" or "centrist."

No matter which nominee is chosen by the thoroughly corrupt Joe Biden, “We the People” are screwed as the sanctity of the U.S. Constitution continues to fade.

By the way, I think it was highly disrespectful of the White House to leak Justice Breyer's decision before he publicly announced his decision. Of course, it was leaked so that the propaganda machine could be spun-up to support the improper restrictions on the selection and decision-making process.

AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS TRYING TO TAKE OVER YOUR CHILD'S INTERNET

The stark truth is: “It’s not for the children; it's for the progressive communist democrats who want to indoctrinate rather than educate.”

AFT Partners with NewsGuard to Combat Misinformation Online

National Partnership Will Roll Out Crucial News Literacy Tool to Tens of Millions of US Students and Families

The American Federation of Teachers has launched a national partnership with a leading anti-misinformation tool NewsGuard to protect and champion legitimate journalism and fact-based reporting and to help educators and their students navigate a sea of online disinformation.

Under the terms of the pathbreaking licensing agreement, coinciding with National News Literacy Week, the AFT’s 1.7 million members, tens of millions of kids they teach, and their families, can now receive free, real-time “traffic light” news ratings and detailed “Nutrition Label” reviews, via a licensed copy of NewsGuard’s browser extension, whenever they search the web for news and information. 

For years, educators have fought battles against suspect sourcing, with their students often misled by dubious outlets and spam sites posing as “news.” NewsGuard offers a practical solution, alerting students and educators to those sites while also providing a valuable lesson in media literacy. <Source>

A few unpleasant truths…

(1)  This is the American Federation of Teachers, the union that fought for more money, more benefits, and more political activism outside of school activities. The same union that continues to keep schools closed and teachers on a paid vacation. A union headed by a committed lesbian political activist, Randi Weingarten, who embraces Marxist teachings and particularly the type of virulent critical race theory that pits students against students based on the color of their skin.  The AFT is also complicit in turning out decades of ill-equipped, ill-informed functional illiterates trained in political activism and sexual perversion.

(2)  NewsGuard, that organization that purports to protect your children from misinformation, appears to be using the same “trained” (i.e., “woke”) journalists who fed you narratives, not news. NewsGuard is headed by Steven Brill, the Yale Law School attorney that founded The American Lawyer magazine and Court TV. There is little doubt that Brill, like most elite attorneys, contributes to progressive democrat politicians and causes.

Some of the advisors on Brill’s team should raise red flags…

  • Michael Hayden: former head of the NSA head and architect of a national electronic surveillance system on US citizens.
  • Arne Duncan: former Secretary of Education for President Obama. This man signed a formal educational partnership agreement with the Peoples' Republic of China.
  • Tom Ridge: first Secretary of Homeland Security.
  • Kate O’Sullivan: general manager for digital diplomacy of Microsoft.
  • Richard Stengel: former Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy during the Obama administration.
  • Jimmy Wales: co-founder of Wikipedia.

These are not arbiters of “misinformation”; they are the swamp propagandists who created much of the misinformation and narratives in their previous positions – and it is unlikely that the leopard can change its spots. And most journalists are already suspect; their viewpoint, for the most part, has already been tainted by Marxist methodology, peer pressure, and the requirement to play to get paid.

(3)  Let us not forget that a large portion of federal funding comes from the government – with a vested interest in pushing a political narrative and bamboozling citizens on behalf of the administration, the bureaucracy, and the special interests.

The end goal – big bucks from those who provide disinformation…

Let us not forget that Microsoft, the owner of LinkedIn, has just censored a user that dared to review Peter Schweitzer’s latest, well-sourced book…

Microsoft’s LinkedIn Censors Post of Peter Schweizer’s ‘Red-Handed’ Criticizing Big Tech Ties to China

Microsoft-owned LinkedIn censored a Breitbart News story containing a book excerpt from Red-Handed, Peter Schweizer's new bombshell investigation into American elites’ ties to communist china, one that focused specifically on Big Tech’s ties to the communist regime.

But when a LinkedIn user tried to share it on the platform, along with a post condemning China for genocidal policies, LinkedIn removed the post for violating its “community policies.”

It’s not the first time LinkedIn has been caught censoring criticism of Communist China on its platform. In October, the Microsoft-owned platform attracted widespread bipartisan condemnation after it censored an Axios reporter who had referenced her own work exposing China’s internment camps in Xinjiang province on her profile.

Now LinkedIn is censoring posts that expose Big Tech’s own links to the authoritarian regime in China. Microsoft, which owns LinkedIn, is exposed in Schweizer’s book for working with the Chinese military on artificial intelligence research.<Source>

Bottom line…

Without contrarian opinions and dissent in the world of ideas, all that is left is propaganda from the government and its special interests.

As with most browser extensions, they often contain proprietary tracking code that covertly surveils your behavior in the guide of providing a free or useful benefit.

We are so screwed.
