WILL YOU AND OUR COUNTRY MAKE IT TO 2024?

Biden-stock

The consequences of an inflation-driven recession are on the horizon, and the red danger flags are flying...

  • You are retired and living on a fixed income in inflationary times that reduces your ability to maintain your standard of living.
  • Your place of employment requires a lengthy commute, and mass transit or ride-sharing is unavailable while gas prices are skyrocketing.
  • Your company does not generate a self-sustaining profit, is dependent upon venture capital investment, or is expending money on a "woke social agenda" rather than reinvesting in profit-generating activities to advance the social standing of senior management, which create layoffs and asset divestitures.
  • Your company has massive debt coming due or is technically insolvent --where current cash flow cannot cover current liabilities -- and lacks hard assets to collateralize loans.
  • Your company exists in an interest-sensitive sector that requires individuals or organizations to finance your product purchases, or you are a lender.
  • Your company is increasing its automation of backroom processes and customer-facing interaction -- replacing people with indefatigable machines.
  • Your country is pursuing socialist policies and tolerating inflation spread over the entire population like a hidden tax, which in the regime's viewpoint is preferable to massive unemployment and allows the government to generate higher taxes and retire debt with "cheaper dollars."
  • Your country is flooded with non-productive, high-maintenance illegal aliens who are rapidly depleting our emergency reserves while consuming medical, housing, employment, and educational resources.
  • Your country or company is run by corrupt individuals willing to eliminate or burden the "little people" to preserve their profits, perks, and privileges.

The solutions for our country, companies, and individuals are self-evident ...

  • Eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in your country, company, and life.
  • Reprioritize spending to cover critical activities and eliminate non-essential items.
  • Reduce or restructure debt while eliminating non-essential or underperforming assets.
  • Outlaw or restrict public employee unions that have institutionalized political corruption, waste, fraud, and abuse.
  • Build an emergency fund.
  • Vote those responsible for the dramatic decline of our nation since January 20, 2021, out of office.

Bottom line...

  • Hope is not a plan; wishing is not a strategy.
  • We can no longer rely on our government or the media to tell the truth about economic and social matters.
  • You do not need to be a number-crunching economist to see that prices are rising and the availability of goods is falling. This is the classic definition of inflation: too much money chasing too few goods and increasing prices.
  • You must take affirmative action now.
  • You realize you are responsible for your own protection and that of your family. Law enforcement has no legal duty to protect individuals not in their custody.
  • Vote the bastards out of office. Revive our energy sector now. Prosecute those who brought this malevolent evil upon our land.

We are so screwed.

THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS REFUSE TO ASK "WHAT'S NEXT?"

While politicians with their preferred ideologies and pet projects come and go, few recognize and analyze the cumulative effects on our economy, culture, and national defense. Few things in America are based on the "long game," with individuals and organizations concentrating on maximizing short-term gains.

Because America, as a whole, is productive and relatively affluent, some use this disparity between countries, as well as individuals, to stick their collective fingers into America's pie with little or no pushback from the politicians -- especially politicians on the take as unofficial foreign lobbyists.

It is now time to get tough. Demand background checks for politicians and their staff. Improve asset disclosures. Eliminate insider trading protections. Demand that lobbyists, consultants, lawyers, accountants, and foreign-owned companies register under FARA (Foreign Agents Registration Act). Punish violators with restrictions on doing business with the government and fines and other penalties.

Back diplomatic words with actions, being prepared and willing to punch back twice as hard as an attacker. Power, respect, and fear should be the goal -- not love and kind words in the media.

Ask what's next?

We are in uncharted waters, an unthinkable political reality-- with an Administration more concerned with managing perceptions through media messaging and censorship than taking action to resolve emergent issues. The next election cycle and fundraising takes precedence over considering actions and asking what's next?

Consider reality! Will the United States come to the aid of Taiwan, or are we just content to "sell" them weapons that American taxpayers ultimately subsidized and paid for?

While change is inevitable and driven by the rapid advancement of technology and globalization, we see the type of change produced by bad actors. Bad actors, engaging in open information warfare and propaganda, are driving and enlarging divisions between Americans based on identity classes. Chaos is being weaponized, and tolerance for shock troops on the far left side of the political spectrum is becoming increasingly apparent.

Unfortunately, much of the chaos and angst is created by the progressive communist democrats and their media propagandists -- and enforced by unions that have become little more than communist front groups.

The progressive communist democrats have been stress-testing America for decades, with their violations of the law and social norms becoming increasingly egregious as time goes on. With little or no pushback from the media or the opposition. 

Where is the 25th Amendment?

It is almost inconceivable that our enemies are better equipped, better trained, and better prepared, and their leadership is more patriotic and prepared to execute aggressive actions -- but this is where we are heading.

President Biden is incapable of executing his duties as the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief of the military.

The idea that Jake Sullivan, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and other members of Obama's cadre of communists are running our military is shocking. Yet, given the actions of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley, and our recent surrender in Afghanistan, that appears to be happening.

How else can you explain what is happening in Iran, Ukraine, and North Korea, where the White House and State Department are micro-managing the show.

Vice President Harris was chosen based on her color, sex, and the fact she is so weak and incompetent as to provide Biden with an insurance policy against being replaced even while medically incapacitated.

Bottom line...

Unfortunately, there remains a large group of individuals, mostly government workers and single white wine-drinking liberal women, who are isolated from the worst economic consequences by guaranteed employment, ever-increasing salaries and benefits, and cushy pensions. Conditions not found in the private sector. Unless these individuals are forced to deal with the reality facing most Americans, there will be little or no change as they continue to support the regime.

There can be no American dream without those who believe in American exceptionalism and are willing to defend America from its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Our President's success should be our success. His failure is our failure.

We are so screwed.

IS "OFFICIAL" DISINFORMATION, DISINFORMATION?

Coronavirus-warning

I do not know who to trust regarding authoritative medical information today.

It appears that the premier health organizations, including WHO (World Health Organization), CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), NIH (National Institutes of Health), prestigious universities with medical schools and research programs, and well-educated, credentialed, experienced, and respected physicians have provided misleading or erroneous advice. Many organizations and individuals have apparent conflicts of interest involving political actors, pharmaceutical companies, and billionaire sponsors.

Even ignoring what the media are labeling conspiracy theories involving Communist China, globalist institutions seeking political control, and those who welcome the pandemic as a means of population control, or even a weakening of the population, the information landscape goes well beyond scientifically supported data.

With some political entities pushing for the censorship of discussions that do not support the “current” narrative. A narrative, if you listen to such alleged experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci, an American physician-scientist and immunologist serving as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, who has flip-flopped like a weather-vane.

Consider this news item and the ambiguity and vagueness of the CDC’s assertions…

FDA: Pfizer COVID Vaccine Good for Young Children Despite More Severe Cases Among Vaccinated

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists on June 13 said Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine performed well in young children, despite more vaccinated participants in Pfizer’s clinical trial experiencing severe illness than unvaccinated ones.

[OCS: How can something be good for young children, statistically not likely to contract or spread COVID-19, if the research shows that “more vaccinated participants in Pfizer’s clinical trial are experiencing severe illness than unvaccinated ones?”

The data from the trial shows it is effective “in preventing COVID-19 in the age group of 6 months through 4 years,” FDA scientists said in a brief (pdf) filed with its vaccine advisory panel.

[OCS: We were originally told that COVID-19 had a statistically negligible effect on young children. Has something changed?]

Additionally, the data “will likely have a beneficial effect” on hospitalization and death, the scientists alleged.

[OCS: Are scientists asking you to risk life-altering side effects in your young children based on belief rather than science.]

The FDA is signaling that it will grant the request for emergency use authorization from Pfizer and BioNTech, which made the vaccine together.

[OCS: Where is the emergency as we do not seem to find significant COVID-19 issues in young children? And is the “emergency use” provision only being used to shield the drug companies from liability for their mistakes?]

Pfizer’s vaccine is the only one available to children in the United States. The company is seeking to expand that availability to kids as young as 6 months old.

The request was altered this year from a 2-dose primary series to a 3-dose primary series because the 2-dose series did not trigger an adequate immune response in some of the children. <Source>

[OCS: Why are the first two doses ineffective – is it that protection is not as good as advertised? Is this the beginning of an annual shot sequence, perhaps with shots demanded by demonstrably corrupt, union-controlled school authorities before school attendance?]

BNT162B2 -- PFIZER-BIONTECH COVID-19 VACCINE -- PFIZER BRIEFING MATERIALS FOR JUNE 14 - 15, 2022 VACCINES AND RELATED BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Now consider this “list of things labeled as ‘myths’ and ‘misinformation’ that later proved to be accurate as published in the bimonthly peer-reviewed journal Surgical Neurology International

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream lead by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies. We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.

For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and “prevention”—including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines. For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient—including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.

The media (T.V., newspapers, magazines, etc.), medical societies, state medical boards and the owners of social media have appointed themselves to be the sole source of information concerning this so-called “pandemic.” Websites have been removed, highly credentialed and experienced clinical doctors and scientific experts in the field of infectious diseases have been demonized, careers have been destroyed and all dissenting information has been labeled “misinformation” and “dangerous lies,” even when sourced from top experts in the fields of virology, infectious diseases, pulmonary critical care, and epidemiology. These blackouts of truth occur even when this information is backed by extensive scientific citations from some of the most qualified medical specialists in the world. Incredibly, even individuals, such as Dr. Michael Yeadon, a retired ex-Chief Scientist, and vice-president for the science division of Pfizer Pharmaceutical company in the U.K., who charged the company with making an extremely dangerous vaccine, is ignored and demonized. Further, he, along with other highly qualified scientists have stated that no one should take this vaccine.

Several of these claims by those opposing these vaccines now appear on the CDC website—most still identified as “myths.” Today, extensive evidence has confirmed that each of these so-called “myths” were in fact true. Many are even admitted by the “saint of vaccines,” Anthony Fauci.

  • The asymptomatic vaccinated are spreading the virus equally as with unvaccinated symptomatic infected.

  • The vaccines cannot protect adequately against new variants, such as Delta and Omicron.

  • Natural immunity is far superior to vaccine immunity and is most likely lifelong.

  • Vaccine immunity not only wanes after several months, but all immune cells are impaired for prolonged periods, putting the vaccinated at a high risk of all infections and cancer.

  • COVID vaccines can cause a significant incidence of blood clots and other serious side effects

  • The vaccine proponents will demand numerous boosters as each variant appears on the scene.

  • Fauci will insist on the covid vaccine for small children and even babies.

  • Vaccine passports will be required to enter a business, fly in a plane, and use public transportation

  • There will be internment camps for the unvaccinated (as in Australia, Austria and Canada)

  • The unvaccinated will be denied employment.

  • There are secret agreements between the government, elitist institutions, and vaccine makers

  • Many hospitals were either empty or had low occupancy during the pandemic.

  • The spike protein from the vaccine enters the nucleus of the cell, altering cell DNA repair function.

  • Hundreds of thousands have been killed by the vaccines and many times more have been permanently damaged.

  • Early treatment could have saved the lives of most of the 700,000 who died.

  • Vaccine-induced myocarditis (which was denied initially) is a significant problem and clears over a short period.

  • Special deadly lots (batches) of these vaccines are mixed with the mass of other Covid-19 vaccines

The article is well worth reading. It paints a troubling picture of the political compromise of science and what appears wrong with our nation as the elite billionaires and their politicians capitalize on the pain and suffering of ordinary Americans to bring about a globalist revolution.

Bottom line…

Without academic freedom, freedom of speech, and scientific transparency, we are so screwed.

Full disclosure: I am fully vaxxed with three doses of Pfizer on the recommendation of my multi-disciplinary medical team due to my high-risk status from significant co-morbidities.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH LIZ CHENEY AND THE REAGAN MUSEUM?

What would possess Liz Cheney, a Republican from a notable Republican family in Wyoming, the second most conservative state in the union, to present manipulated evidence regarding a recorded event where the distortions can be easily proven?

Part of the answer lies in her father, Dick Cheney, who came from big oil to serve as establishment President George W. Bush’s Vice President.

I was surprised to find Cheney speaking at the conservative Reagan Museum in Simi Valley, California, on June 29, 2022. Especially as part of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute’s A Time for Choosing Speaker Series, which is billed as a forum for leading voices in the conservative movement to address critical questions facing the future of the Republican Party. Through formal speeches delivered at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, speakers specifically address fundamental questions, such as “Why are you a Republican?” “What should the Republican Party stand for?” and “What are the Republican philosophies we can all agree on?”

REAGAN-CHENEY

But then I remembered that the Reagan Museum is controlled by the Reagan Foundation, headed by an establishment Republican. Although Fred Ryan served as Chief of Staff to Ronald Reagan from 1989 until 1995, he is also the Publisher and CEO of Jeff Bezos’ corrupt publication, The Washington Post, and the co-founder of the left-leaning Politico, where he served as President and CEO.

REAGAN-FOUNDATION

Cheney is definitely a RINO (Republican In Name Only) turncoat, once reviled by the Democrats and now feted as a “truth-teller” ,,,

Some of the most striking revelations during the prime-time hearing from the House January 6 committee were delivered by the top Republican on the panel, Liz Cheney. She also delivered an ominous message to her party.

CHENEY: Tonight, I say this to my Republican colleagues who are defending the indefensible - there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone, but your dishonor will remain.

CHENEY: I am a conservative Republican, and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law.

CHENEY: When I know something is wrong, I will say so. I won't waiver or back down. I won't surrender to pressure or intimidation.  <Source>

This is said as she participates in an illegally-constituted committee, using illegal subpoenas, and presenting doctored, out-of-context” evidence obtained by a process that violated due process.

Bottom line...

It appears that the Democrats and the RINO cohorts are destroying our institutions one by one.  I will think twice about supporting the Reagan complex in nearby Simi Valley, California.

We are so screwed.

TODAY'S RANT

Where is the GOP pushback as our economy is crumbling and our national defense cracking?

TODAYS-RANT

The hidden stinger in “common sense” red flag gun laws…

How many people have noticed that those commonsense gun laws have a hidden stinger – a legal method to deny American citizens their God-given right to self-defense and their 2nd Amendment Constitutional rights, not for a crime they have committed, but a crime “someone” thinks they might commit in the future? Where a mere accusation is given the force of law and the accuser avoids responsibility for their actions.

The red flag laws will be ill-defined and vague – capable of being wielded by activists and extremists who project their extremist views onto their opposition. In some cases, the confiscation is immediate, due process is delayed, and justice is turned upside down as an individual is no longer considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Not to mention the non-reimbursable expense of defending yourself against defamation and recovering your legally-owned property.

Criminals, crazies, and terrorists do not respect nor follow the law. Disarming law-abiding citizens only creates a bigger victim pool and increases the burden on law enforcement which has no legal duty to protect individuals not in their custody. The appropriate laws already exist on the books – use them.

Here is Representative Eric Swalwell, the communist stooge, supporting using the red flags laws to censor constitutionally-protected free speech.

BS-1

The war on energy: natural gas and diesel driving inflation… 

The cost of natural gas, which powers about 40% of electrical generating plants, is skyrocketing – primarily based on machinations of the Biden Administration, including climate change politics, and arranged greater shipments of natural gas to Europe to blunt the effects of Russian dominance of the marketplace in certain nations.

For those who do not know, much of our natural gas comes as a byproduct of oil production, and, with the Administration’s cut back on fossil fuels, we are totally screwed. Not to mention that natural gas is the feedstock for producing the critical fertilizer needed for food production.

Diesel powers almost all transportation, ships, trucks, trains, and food production and distribution. Independent truckers are especially hard-hit since a fill-up can cost $500 to $1,000 or more. All costs are being passed to the consumer. It should also be noted that refineries are being restricted with no new capacity coming on line as existing refiners shut down for scheduled maintenance. With no new refineries, supply and demand forces are crippling consumers. All political outcomes can be remedied by better leadership and fewer regulations!

Renewable energy is as much a hoax as is climate change. Solar energy and battery production are dominated by raw materials sourced from Communist Chinese. There is no way that Biden’s “transition” will not cripple our nation and affect national security.

Ukraine’s wheat is going nowhere soon…

Ukraine is one of the world’s top wheat producers and exporters, with approximately 5+ percent of farmland owned or controlled by Communist China, which is facing a food crisis. Undoubtedly, the war in Ukraine has affected wheat production, fertilizer production, and grain shipments from Russia and Ukraine.

In case you haven’t noticed, Russia and Ukraine have mined the Black Sea to curtail shipping. So much for Ukraine’s wheat being used to alleviate a global food shortage.

Rail transport faces challenges—both from sabotage and the difference in national railway track gauges.

Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine use 1,520 mm gauge tracks, while Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (only a high-speed network), Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland), Vatican City, use 1435-mm gauge tracks.

Belarus is friendly to Russia and is unlikely to support the transshipment of wheat over their soil.

LGBTQ at war…

It appears that the alphabet people are at war, not only with the LG faction opposing the TQ faction but at war with traditional Judeo-Christian morality.

The traditional LG (Lesbian and Gay) viewpoint is that there are two sexes, and their existence is natural -- and since they were born that way, they should be accepted and assimilated with nobody interfering with their activities. However, the TQ (Trans and Queer) viewpoint is that biological essentialism (two sexes) is inaccurate. That sex is subjective and fluid, based upon the prevailing environment at the moment. However, both have formed a coalition to resist traditional Judeo-Christian teachings. What should be of concern is that the majority of these groups appear to be dominated by progressive communist democrats engaged in the identity struggle to destroy current institutions and culture. When I ask if we should allow any minority group to become the arbiters of our culture – the answer should be NEVER!

My motto is live and let live until you impinge upon and impact my freedoms.

How corrupt and morally bankrupt are our politicians?

Nancy Pelosi Appears On RuPaul's Drag Race: "Drag Is What America Is All About"

Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi made an appearance the television show 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' a weekly program on VH1 that features drag queens. "It's my honor to be here," Pelosi said after being introduced by host RuPaul Andre Charles. "Your freedom of expression of yourselves in drag is what America is all about."

"With the midterm elections coming up, it is very important for people to make their voices and their vote heard," Pelosi told the drag queens. <Source>

What about “sexual appropriation of clothing from the opposite sex?’

Our nation and culture are in a state of severe decline, and this is what the third most powerful person in the government is concerned about? As far as I can tell, the progressive communist democrats are creating needless mental health issues within the population, especially children, with their gender-bending nonsense.

How far have we fallen…

I find it almost incomprehensible that a major company, Postmates, a food delivery service founded in 2011, and acquired by Uber in 2020, would publish food tips for those wanting to engage in anal sex without messy accidents. Pride month or not, corporations should abstain from needless “woke” political and social commentary that can offend a large portion of their customer base.

Pm-1

Anything to grab attention…

Many of the world’s diseases come from Africa and East Asia, as well as areas with inadequate sanitation and questionable food sources. To change traditional nomenclatures to prevent “woke” identity politics grievance is just another ploy to further reconfigure the world to the liking of the international communists.

Discriminatory and stigmatizing’: Scientists push to rename monkeypox viruses

A group of scientists from Africa and elsewhere are urging the scientific community and world health leaders to drop the stigmatizing language used to differentiate monkeypox viruses, and are even advocating renaming the virus itself.

In a position paper published online on Friday, the group proposed abandoning the existing names for monkeypox virus clades — West Africa and Congo Basin — and replacing them with numbers, saying the current names are discriminatory.

“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” the more than two dozen scientists wrote. <Source>

Rebecca Stevens A., self-described as a “top writer in BlackLivesMatter, Racism, Mental Health,” jumps on the issue that “Monkeypox” is racist.

White Media And Its Racist Coverage Of Monkeypox

It’s a textbook case in blatant racism

Rebecca Stevens A.There’s a new scary disease out there and it's called monkeypox. I should tell you straight away that this is a misnomer because the disease isn’t transmitted by monkeys (poor monkeys), it is transmitted by rats.

As was the case for Covid 19 and China, the western media is looking for a scapegoat — some country, some continent to blame for monkeypox. Not surprisingly, they are using their tried and tested racist narratives to go about this, and are blaming the African continent for the spread of monkeypox.

Like they’ve always done, whether it be with HIV, or aggressive variants of Covid 19, Africa, the dark continent, is where everything bad and evil for humanity originates. By doing this, they are creating dangerous parallels and pandering to old, racist narratives that Africans, Black people, are the purveyors of all types of horrible and scary diseases. <Source>

Bottom line…

Are you noticing the intolerance of the very people demanding you tolerate their viewpoint? Are you willing to do anything about it?

We are so screwed.

THE GOP'S BIGGEST OPPONENT IS NOT THE DEMOCRATS

It appears that the congressional circus and one-sided shit-show are continuing. No new facts, only distortions, and deceptions. A pathetic multi-million dollar propaganda extravaganza.

Your Choice!

The progressive communist democrats who have wrecked our energy industry, destroyed much of our economy, tell us that our nations, and particularly white males are racist, have subverted most institutions including education where they are asking small children to self-select whether they want to be a boy, a girl, or some weird variation of the two depending on the day.

vs.

The alleged evils of America First and whatever the progressive communist democrats label as Trumpism.

The reality is that the Democrats have only one issue, to run against the bogeyman of a long-departed Donald Trump and to pretend the contest might be between a mentally-absent Joe Biden and an aging but animated Donald Trump.

The January 6 Committee presentation was deceptively edited to leave out exculpatory evidence, a clear violation of the federal rules of evidence that the Committee ignored.

With our nation deeply polarized by the continued assault of the progressive communist democrats who are praying to retain the majority of the minority community that they have so horribly treated, it remains to be seen if Americans can rise above peer pressure and "team" politics to put American First on the ballot and start recovering from malignant, metastasizing party politics.

Considering what we have seen with the leadership of our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies, why is having thoughts, or even doubts, about past elections, beyond outright voter fraud, including illegal procedural changes, mass mail-in absentee balloting, vote harvesting, failure to clean voter roles, deceptive polling and counting anomalies, un-American?

The real GOP opponent…

Rvr

The real battle is the internal fight between the establishment and the conservatives. But it appears that the GOP, as a whole, is a feckless lot – too cowardly to push back hard against the democrats and their media propagandists and lacking the balls to take decisive action against those who openly advance the opposition agenda and “spoil” near GOP victory votes. Like the mostly establishment Republicans who are, in reality, Democrats -- especially Senators like Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John Cornyn (R-TX), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Richard Burr (R-NC), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Rob Portman (R-OH), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and Pat Toomey (R-PA).

The fact that the GOP did not run and support a viable candidate to challenge the corrupt liar/leaker Adam Schiff in his newly-drawn district is the type of fecklessness that is common in the GOP.

Craziness from liar/leaker Jan 6 Committee member Adam Schiff...

Stephen,

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the gravity of the situation we’re facing, and I wanted to share some thoughts with you.

So much is at stake right now. And there is so much to be done.

Defending democracy. Fighting back against oil industry greed and price gouging. Protecting reproductive rights. Ending the epidemic of gun violence. Stopping Trump and his cronies from regaining power.

[OCS: Lies! Schiff and the progressive communist democrats have subverted or tried to subvert every democratic institution, especially the Supreme Court. Pricing is a function of supply and demand coupled with tariffs and international supply chain issues. Reproductive rights are not a constitutional issue, but a matter to be decided by people voting in their respective states. No gun laws can protect you from criminals, crazies, and terrorists -- they only enlarge the potential victim pool. Trump is long out of office and when in office faced thousands of Obama acolytes that form the resistance to his Administration.]

Keeping and expanding our Democratic majorities in Congress in a midterm election — where historically the party in power flips.

[OCS: Nobody in their right mind would vote for more of the same. While the GOP might not have all of the answers, it was the Democrats who caused all of the damage to our nation. Imagine what the nation might have looked like if Trump's presidency was not reviled and sabotaged by the progressive communist democrats?]

Together, we’ve made great progress for working families all across the country, and I’m so thankful for your help every step of the way.

[OCS: Great progress? Inflation, heading toward a recession, higher gas prices, higher food prices, no baby formula, and higher taxes.]

— Adam Schiff

Bottom line...

The progressive communist democrats are racing against a bear and will do anything to see that someone else is eaten first.

It has nothing to do with Trump or a political party and everything to do with preserving the nation going forward.

While the progressive communist democrats are a clear and present danger to America, so are the GOP “go along to get along” establishment types.

Vote competency and patriotism over ideology and color.

We are so screwed.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” ― C.S.

DEMOCRAT REALITY SUCKS

TODAYS-RANT

The cleverness of the progressive communist democrats is that they create an environment where, while most people understand what they say is the opposite of what they really mean, their intended victims lack the guts or the motivation to buck their peers and call out evil.

Even those who are tired of listening to the progressive communist democrats misrepresent reality and their intentions, many people are willing to overlook the lunatic confidence of a senile incompetent old fool like President Joe Biden, who is, at the same time, playing a character based on a carefully-crafted on-stage persona. A man who lies openly and publicly about his false sense of non-accomplishment.

Suppose you believe the progressive communist democrat persona. In that case, you will also be encouraged to believe the illusory idea that these are well-meaning, well-intentioned individuals even though you can witness for yourself the havoc and destruction they create-- degrading and destroying all they touch.

For those who enjoy the irony of misplaced optimism, consider the Republicans who are tempted to treat progressive communist democrats kindly under the oft mistaken theory that,  if they are shown a modicum of respect and kindness, the Democrats will behave rationally or, perhaps, even reform.

Even when the Democrats appear reasonable and accepting of conservative ideas, don't be fooled, evil is evil, and a communist is always a communist!

Consider that the Democrats only appear to empathize with minorities before elections, promising to provide further entitlements and redress their grievances when elected. After the elections, the special interests siphon off allocated funds and kick back a portion to the politicians in the form of campaign funds. To the extent minorities are elected to office, they are often little more than window-dressing and are still beholden to the party power structure.

There is an old joke about a senior citizen voter walking along a steep cliff when he is approached by a Democrat running for office. The Democrat slowly and loudly explains that the Democrats will save Medicare and improve benefits. The senior citizen enthusiastically nods his head and agrees to vote in the upcoming election. As the senior turns away, the Democrat shoves him off the cliff, yelling, "don't forget to vote."

Triggering words...

It is my experience that whenever anyone says the following words, you know you are in the presence of someone trying to destroy America when they attempt to redefine the commonly accepted meaning. 

The cleverness of their words is that they often mean the exact opposite of what they purport to mean.

  • Democracy: A synonym for the mobocracy that allows the progressives to pursue their agenda when they are in the majority. Democracy is constantly under assault when progressive ambitions are thwarted.
  • Populism: A term used to describe the people who vote for the wrong non-progressive-sponsored or approved candidate or cause.
  • Social Justice Warriors: A term used to label a cadre of progressive communist democrats or, literally, violent progressive shock troops used to convince the timid they need the progressives to protect them from real or imagined harm.
  • Structural: A term to describe something endemic to the system, overlooking, of course, that the progressive communist democrats control the system where bad things often happen.
  • Racist: A label for anyone opposing the progressive communist democrat regime's agenda. Similar term to the 'phobe label for used for specific identity classes.
  • Truth: A self-evident or verifiable observation that accurately describes something as it is, not as the progressive communist democrats wish it to be.
  • Equality: A theoretical concept of an ideal condition that ignores human nature and the existence of evil.
  • Diversity: A word to describe individual differences external to progressive thought, behavior, and action, also known as "groupthink."
  • Equity: The modern word substitute for affirmative action where one group is rewarded at the expense of another, as determined by progressive communist democrats.
  • Inclusion: Everyone except white male gun-owning individuals who may have voted for non-progressive individuals and causes.
  • Intersectionality: The attempt to widen the traditional Marxist capitalist class identity nomenclature from the bourgeoisie (the owners of the means of production) and the proletariat (the workers) to include more victims along the lines of color, religion, sexual orientation, and other factors outside or commonly accepted norms. Each with its own sub-segment of oppressors and the oppressed until the ultimate resolution of family member pitted against family member.
  • Disinformation: Any thought, utterance, or writing that contradicts the progressive communist democrat regime's narrative.
  • Hate speech: Any statement that the progressive communist democrats hate.  

About those "professional" politicians ...

Do not listen to politicians who use the word "career" when referring to their service.

Professional politicians only appear to put aside self-protection, self-advancement, and self-serving profiteering when they form tight-knit groups targeting a particular cause, presumably to benefit that cause, when it's all about them. Don't believe it! While these groups may have the semblance of a shared cause, they are mainly about a fundraising scheme targeting special interests.

Each career politician's constituents are valuable in proportion to what they have notably achieved in the past and the assets they presently command; in short, what they can do for the politician first and the party second.

Bottom line...

Believe progressive communist democrats, and you will find yourself operating under the illusory opinion that they are well-meaning and have your best interests at heart. Nothing could be further from the truth.

We are so screwed.

JAN 6 COMMITTEE DOG AND PONY SHOW: WHY? WHY? WHY?

With no opposition, no objections, and no challenge to hearsay and unsolicited opinions -- with all participants selected by demented Speaker Pelosi -- all this equals no truth...

Why didn’t the Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), open the hearing using the “smoking gun” evidence that the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers colluded with Donald Trump or members of the Trump Administration to foment a democracy-threatening insurrection?

Instead, old Bennie, 74, reminisced about growing up in racist Mississippi…

“I am Bennie Thompson, Chairman of the January 6th, 2021 Committee. I was born, raised and still live in Bolton, Mississippi, a town with a population of 521, which is midway between Jackson and Vicksburg, MS, and the Mississippi River. I am from a part of the country where people justified the actions of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan and lynching. I’m reminded of that dark history as I hear voices today try and justify the actions of the insurrectionists on January 6th, 2021.”

Could this be the opening of a campaign against “white Christian nationalism,” the latest attack rhetoric from the progressive communist democrats, as the proximate cause of the January 6th faux insurrection, the proximate cause of all anti-Roe v. Wade rhetoric, and of course, the origin of white supremacism and black oppression?

Why didn’t the alleged “hearing” to solicit testimony, advice, and explanations regarding the “legislative purpose” of strengthening Capitol Security start with hearing from the people in charge of Capitol Security, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the House of Representative’s Sergeant at Arms, and the Chief of the Capitol Police among others?

How likely is it that the illegally-constituted and Democrat-dominated Committee is political theatre meant to distract from the failure of Democrat domestic and foreign policies that have materially damaged America and all Americans? To blunt the force of a “red wave” that is likely to wash away Democrat majorities in the House, Senate, and local elections? And, to ensure Donald Trump’s legacy and political future, either as a candidate or a “kingmaker,” is thoroughly destroyed?

Why are no opposition voices questioning assertions and highlighting other interpretations of events? In what universe did Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) represent her Wyoming constituency or the viewpoint of the Republican Party’s explanation of events?

As you will see in the hearings to come, President Trump believed his supporters at the Capitol, and I quote, “were doing what they should be doing.” This is what he told his staff as they pleaded with him to call off the mob, to instruct his supporters to leave. Over a series of hearings in the coming weeks, you will hear testimony, live and on video, from more than a half dozen former White House staff in the Trump administration, all of whom were in the West Wing of the White House on January 6th. You will hear testimony that “The President didn’t really want to put anything out” calling off the riot or asking his supporters to leave. You will hear that President Trump was yelling, and “really angry at advisors who told him he needed to be doing something more.” And, aware of the rioters’ chants to “hang Mike Pence,” the President responded with this sentiment: “maybe our supporters have the right idea.” Mike Pence “deserves” it.

[OCS: Yes, Trump supporters were peaceably protesting and it was a relatively few individuals that caused a riot in the Capitol complex. You notice Cheney did not note that Trump offered the National Guard to maintain order and the offer was firmly rejected by Speaker Pelosi and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

What was said privately to the President is not material to the riot that saw the Capitol Police openly welcome protestors into the Capitol. Or the appearance of key individuals who were serving as agitators. Likewise, President Trump’s non-public utterances and actions are not material to an investigation to improve Capitol Security.]

“You will hear evidence that President Trump refused for hours to do what his staff, his family, and many of his other advisors begged him to do: immediately instruct his supporters to stand down and evacuate the Capitol.  

“Tonight, you will see never-before-seen footage of the brutal attack on our Capitol, an attack that unfolded while, a few blocks away, President Trump sat watching television in his dining room off the Oval Office. You will hear audio from the brave police officers battling for their lives and ours, fighting to defend our democracy, against a violent mob Donald Trump refused to call off.  

“Tonight and in the weeks to come, you will see evidence of what motivated this violence, including directly from those who participated in this attack. You will see video of them explaining what caused them to do it. You will see their posts on social media. We will show you what they have said in federal court. On this point, there is no room for debate. Those who invaded our Capitol and battled law enforcement for hours were motivated by what President Trump had told them: that the election was stolen, and that he was the rightful President. President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack.  

“You will also hear about plots to commit seditious conspiracy on January 6th, a crime defined in our laws as “conspiring to overthrow, put down or destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to oppose by force the authority thereof.”

[OCS: It is ludicrous that an unarmed mob would attack armed officers in an attempt to overthrow the United States government – most were lookie-loos more interested in selfies and souvenirs. You want to see a real armed insurrection -- look at Antifa and Black Lives Matter in Portland, Oregon where they established their own state and governance -- however temporary. That's the face of violent insurrection. What of the attacks on the White House? ]

Multiple members of two groups, the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, have been charged with this crime for their involvement in the events leading up to and on January 6th. Some have pled guilty. The attack on our Capitol was not a spontaneous riot. Intelligence available before January 6th identified plans to “invade” the Capitol, “occupy” the Capitol, and take other steps to halt Congress’ count of Electoral Votes that day. In our hearings to come, we will identify elements of those plans, and we will show specifically how a group of Proud Boys led a mob into the Capitol building on January 6th.

Tonight I am going to describe for you some of what our committee has learned and highlight initial findings you will see this month in our hearings. As you hear this, all Americans should keep in mind this fact: On the morning of January 6th, President Donald Trump’s intention was to remain President of the United States despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his Constitutional obligation to relinquish power. Over multiple months, Donald Trump oversaw and coordinated a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the presidential election and prevent the transfer of presidential power. In our hearings, you will see evidence of each element of this plan. 

Cheney sounds like a vicious old witch railing at Donald Trump. No bi-partisanship. No reason. No legal standard. Just the rantings of a partisan hack.

The “hearing” was scripted, and the Committee Members fluffed before their staged teleprompter session.

Tc-1

Bottom line…

They packaged Democrat bullshit! Similar to the Trump Russia hoax hearings. Ho. Hum. 

The playbook.

  • THE DEMOCRATS CONCOCT A LIE.
  • THE MEDIA AMPLIFIES AND DISTRIBUTES THE LIE.
  • BIG TECH CENSORS  INCONVENIENT FACTS AND DISSENT.
  • CONGRESS HOLDS HEARINGS TO PROMOTE THE LIE WITH THE POWER OF GOVERNMENT.

Remember, it was the violent insurrectionist Democrats who opposed the government and started the Civil War.

We are so screwed.

THE JAN 6 COMMITEE SHOW TRIAL: THE CUT-AND-PASTE EDITION

CCC-1

I am impressed with the Democrat’s production of “The Invasion of the Capitol, Part One: The Coup and Trump’s last stand.”

This is a slickly-produced one-sided narrative with beautiful production values—well worth the money they spent on scripting and editing.

Liz Cheney’s stone-faced performance as a narrator was outstanding. I would love to see some of the out-takes and how much staging went into the “Dis-making of a President.” I  think she should audition for CBS’s 60 Minutes after her sorry lying ass is kicked to the curb by her Wyoming constituents.

The producers are following the old pattern: tell ’em what you’re going to say, say it, and then tell ’em what you just said.

The Democrats will not end this until a grand jury indicts President Trump or the illegitimate Committee is replaced with a legitimate panel...

Liz Cheney: "As we present these initial findings, keep two points in mind. First, our investigation is still ongoing. so what we make public here will not be the complete set of information we will ultimately disclose. And second, the Department of Justice is currently working with cooperating witnesses and has disclosed to date only some of the information it has identified from encrypted communications and other sources."

I suggest all Americans keep this single point in mind -- this illegally constituted Committee is obtaining documents and testimony without the normal constitutional protections afforded witnesses in a civil or criminal trial and feeding that information to the Department of Justice headed by a corrupt political hack, Merrick Garland. 

You are hearing one side without challenge, as would be done in a legally-constituted and fair committee hearing.

However, it is a production filled with half-truths and inconsistencies like “President Trump gave no order to deploy the National Guard that day.”

The truth is that the President had authorized the use of the National Guard through the Secretary of Defense, 20,000 troops, previously - well before the riot and "walk through the Capitol complex." Permission to deploy before or on January 6 depended on a request from the Capitol Police or the D.C. Mayor.

What they didn’t say is that both House Speaker Pelosi, through her minions, and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser refused all offers of military assistance until it was too late to strategically deploy. And then the Chief of the Capitol Police repeatedly requested to authorize the use of the National Guard.

From Appendix A of the official Capitol Police timeline on January 5, 2021…

1304 hours --  COP [Chief of Police] Sund asks SSAA [Senate Sargent at Arms] for declaration of emergency for National Guard support.
1309 hours  -- COP Sund asks HSAA [House Sargent at Arms] for declaration of emergency for National Guard support.

1322 hours  -- COP Sund reiterates request to HSAA for emergency declaration for National Guard support.
1342 hours  --  Insurrectionists breach Lower West Terrace fence line and scaffolding.
1345 hours  --  Insurrectionists  breach East Plaza fence by the skylights.
1349 hours  --  COP Sund requests National Guard Support front General Walker. Advises General Walker that a CPB emergency declaration is forthcoming
1403 hours  --   COP Sund reiterates to HSAA request for emergency declaration for National Guard support.
Approximately 1426 hours --  COP Sund urgently request National Guard support during teleconference with Christopher Rodriguez, DC Homeland Security, Chief Contee, MPD; General Walker, DC National Guard; Muriel Bowser, DC Mayor; Lieutenant General Walter E. Piatt, Army Staff Secretary.
1428 hours -- Remaining Members evacuated from Senate floor.
1430 hours --  Per DC National Guard's request USCP drafts a formal written request to Department of Defense for National Guard support.
1434 hours -- Upper West Terrace breached.
1437 hours --  Corridor to House Chamber breached.
1439 hours --  USCP personnel begin evacuating Members inside the House Chamber.
1443 hours --  USCP personnel shoots insurrectionist attempting to breach area outside of House Floor.
1450 hours --  Senate Chamber breached.
1615 hours --  COP Sund teleconference with VPOTUS Pence
1736 hours --  COP Sund meets with VPOTUS Pence and teleconference with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to brief them on the security posture. Advised that the building could be safely re-occupied by 1930 hours.
1747 hours -- Seven National Guard buses headed to north barricade.
Approximately1825 hours --  COP Sund briefs Senators Schumer and McConnell, and Representative Clyburn over the telephone on the current security posture of the Capitol and the ability of the House and Senate to reconvene in their respective Chambers.

It appears that there was an hours-long delay before National Guard soldiers were deployed to the Capitol after first being requested at 1:49 p.m. (1349 hours) by the commander of D.C. National Guard, William Walker.

The simple truth, the entire fiasco was easily averted -- but it appears that the Democrats had other plans to discredit Trump and their GOP opposition.

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus – false in one, false in all

The progressive communist democrats at the New York Times, known for their misleading reporting on significant world events, say the quiet part out loud…

Jan. 6 Hearings Give Democrats a Chance to Recast Midterm Message

With their majority at stake, Democrats plan to use the six high-profile hearings to refocus voters’ attention on Republicans’ role in the attack.

[OCS: Are you going to allow the corrupt, incompetent Democrats stay in power because the Obama/Biden regime is exploiting a riot which they themselves orchestrated?]

Seventeen months after a mob of Donald J. Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol with false claims of a stolen election, House Democrats plan to use a landmark set of investigative hearings beginning this week to try to refocus voters’ attention on Jan. 6, aiming to tie Republicans directly to an unprecedented plot to undermine democracy itself.

[OCS: Trump is no longer in office. Few critical high-ranking government positions are filled by professionals, with most filled by former President Obama’s acolytes.

Who cares? It is unlikely Trump will run in 2024 but he loves the publicity that comes from keeping his name in the news. Just looking at the melee wandering in the Capitol seeking selfies and souvenirs, it is impossible to believe our democracy was a stake.]

With their control of Congress hanging in the balance, Democrats plan to use made-for-television moments and a carefully choreographed rollout of revelations over the course of six hearings to remind the public of the magnitude of Mr. Trump’s effort to overturn the election, and to persuade voters that the coming midterm elections are a chance to hold Republicans accountable for it.

[OCS: It’s literally a show trial, produced and directed by the Democrat Party, much in the same manner as the DNC hack, Trump/Russia hoax, and the Ukraine telephone impeachment scam. I would suggest that the voters use this opportunity to hold Democrats accountable for all of their corruptions and disasters – including surrendering Afghanistan, leaving Americans behind enemy lines, arming Islamic radicals, and stealing billions of dollars in the process.]

It is an uphill battle at a time when polls show that voters’ attention is focused elsewhere, including on inflation, rising coronavirus cases and record-high gas prices. But Democrats argue the hearings will give them a platform for making a broader case about why they deserve to stay in power.

[OCS:  It’s hard to look behind the domestic and foreign policy failures of the Obama/Biden Administration with its massive corruption, spying on Americans, and incompetency to make a case to ask for more of the same types failure that is destroying our national institutions, moving us toward a depression, and possibly sparking World War III with a nuclear armed opponent.]

“When these hearings are over, voters will know how irresponsibly complicit Republicans were in attempting to toss out their vote and just how far Republicans will go to gain power for themselves,” said Representative Sean Patrick Maloney, the Democratic campaign chair. <Source>

[OCS: Ever the masters of projection, the progressive communist democrats, once against, count on the ignorance and apathy of the American public to accuse their GOP opposition of their own bad behavior. Failing that they hope that their mainstream media propagandists will push their narrative and censor and suppress critical comment s or, alternatively, have the social media platforms cancel the most strident dissenters.] 

THE DEMOCRAT’S BIG QUESTION: Do you hate Donald Trump enough to allow the Democrats to continue deceiving you in their efforts to destroy the United States?

Remember the Democrats charging the Capitol protesters with the “big crime” of impeding an official proceeding?

Activists Plan to Block Entrances and ‘Shut Down’ Supreme Court to Prevent Expected Roe v. Wade Ruling

'We may talk about some action ideas that stretch the bounds of constitutionally protected speech'

Protest organizing group Shut Down D.C. plans to block access to the Supreme Court in Washington on June 13.

In online meeting footage obtained by The Epoch Times, the group announced that it planned to seal off all three vehicle entrances to the court so justices wouldn’t be able to get in and announce a decision that might overturn Roe v. Wade.

The group’s presentation says it would either stop Supreme Court justices from entering the court, “continue to escalate the crisis in democracy” by making police remove the demonstrators by force, or make the government implement its demands. <Source>

[OCS: Hypocrisy? Since Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to prosecute those trying to influence a judicial proceeding by threatening the six conservative Supreme Court Justices, I do not think they will prosecute these left-wing “domestic terrorists” in the same manner as the Capitol interlopers.]

Bottom line…

You will notice a flurry of high-profile arrests and charges leading up to the program’s air date.

Perhaps someone might ask the Committee why they employed the former ABC News President, James Goldston,  who spiked a story about pedophile democrat Jeffrey Epstein to produce their propaganda video.

We are so screwed if the GOP doesn’t push back hard against this travesty of tyranny.

Stay tuned!

NANCY PELOSI AND HER POLITICIZED CAPITOL POLICE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR JAN 6 DEBACLE

PELOSI-CAPITOL-POLICEThere is little doubt in my mind that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as the orchestrator of the Capitol event, was the proximate cause of the January 6th riot -- and it fell far short of the armed insurrection that the propagandists in the media portrayed.

Even now, with the televised dog and pony show, the Democrats are trying to distract Americans from the domestic and foreign policy failures that are rapidly ruining America and edging us closer to armed conflict with Russia or its proxies.

What are they hiding?

There is a reason that much of the video has been sequestered by the Democrats.

  • It shows Capitol Police inviting and waving people into the Capitol building, where they were more interested in selfies and souvenirs than disrupting the government. Many stayed within the rope lines and conversed with uniformed police.
  • It shows as yet uncharged alleged government agitators and members of violent extremist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter actively precipitating criminal acts of vandalism and then encouraging violence.
  • It shows the crowd surrounding Ashley Babbitt when a Capitol Police Lieutenant shot her, included armed police officers standing next to her -- with an armed SWAT team yards away on a staircase. It shows the excessive use of force by an officer whose life was not threatened.
  • It shows a hand-crafted narrative about a Capitol Police Officer who died of natural causes instead of being assaulted by a fire extinguisher. The body's condition instantly debunked the lie -- but was repeated in House documents during the impeachment of Donald Trump.

They will blame the former President and his supporters…

There is no doubt that the secondary exercise, beyond distracting Americans from the dystopian reality created by the Democrats, is to blame and punish Donald Trump and diminish his influence by the 2024 presidential election cycle.

Will they mention that Donald Trump authorized the Secretary of the Army to place up to 20,000 National Guard troops in the Capitol if requested? An option turned down by Speaker Pelosi and District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser until the last minute?

Will they mention that Donald Trump urged the crowd to protest peaceably?

“We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country.” Donald Trump – January 6, 2021

Bottom line…

The January 6th Committee is illegitimate, and its actions are a continuance of Pelosi's war on Donald Trump. Much of the big lie is as manufactured as the Trump/Russia collusion hoax -- by much the same people who touted the hoax.

The Democrats have violated the Constitutional rights of the many protesters in jail awaiting long-delayed trials, in solitary confinement with limited access to attorneys and evidence. Many are coerced into accepting plea deals to avoid facing years in prison – far greater punishment than the Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters who viciously assaulted people, looted stores, destroyed public and private property, and burnt part of our cities to the ground.

Although the speech and debate clause keeps members of Congress from being prosecuted for lies and some criminal activity, it does not protect them from being thrown out of office. And it does not protect non-members of Congress from being prosecuted for their crimes.

There is no doubt in my mind that the January 6 Committee is conspiring and concluding with the Department of Justice to criminalize political speech prior to the 2024 election -- the only way the Democrats can neutralize how bad they have damaged America.

We are so screwed if we do not call out this charade.
