WARNING: THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ARE PLANTING TIME BOMBS IN AMERICA

6a00d83451d3b569e202a2eecd0753200d

I wonder how many Americans recognize the future long-term damage being done to America, its citizens, and our lives by woke progressive communist democrat officials with their insane and nonsensical rules and regulations?

Consider the following facts...

(1)  The progressive communist democrats are sensationalizing the science surrounding climate change to drive their progressive communist agenda and attempt to fundamentally transform America's economy, culture, and governance. One need only look back to the decades of failed predictions and enormous profits generated by exploiting global climate change.

(2)  The United States has abundant natural resources, especially fossil fuels, to last hundreds of years, including abundant cost-effective natural gas supplies.

(3)  The progressive communist democrats are trying to destroy our industrialized energy-based economy by demanding the replacement of abundant, reliable, cost-effective fossil fuels with unreliable and costly so-called green alternatives such as solar and wind devices which produce only a fraction of what is required to sustain our economy and quality of life—demonizing nuclear energy based on decades-old technology and information and destroying dams and hydroelectric generating capacity.

(4)  The progressive communist democrats continue to suppress accurate information and dissent by falsely labeling anything that contradicts the regime's narrative as misinformation or disinformation—totally ignoring that the preponderance of misinformation and disinformation is generated by the regime itself or its media propagandists.

The attack is being localized...

The End of the Gas Range and Fireplace? Local Governments Ban Natural Gas

Are you hoping for a shiny gas range in your new home? How about a fireplace as the main attraction of your new living room?

If so, don’t move to Los Angeles, because the city is phasing out natural gas hookups in all new residential and commercial buildings effective Jan. 1, 2023. But LA isn’t alone. It’s California’s 57th locality to introduce commitments to phase out natural gas, and many cities across the country are following suit.

In a misguided effort to reduce emissions, localities that pass ordinances like these totally ignore just how vital natural gas is not only for our broader energy landscape, but also for families and businesses.

Nationwide, natural gas accounts for roughly 38% of electricity generation, and around 177 million Americans use natural gas to heat their homes and cook their meals.

Beyond its prevalence, natural gas is also an affordable source of energy. Residential natural gas is estimated to cost almost one-quarter the price of electricity, which, according to the American Gas Association, adds up to an average annual savings of over $1,000 in household utilities.

And natural gas is a relatively clean source of energy. The U.S. Energy Information Administration notes that “burning natural gas for energy results in fewer emissions of nearly all types of air pollutants and carbon dioxide (CO2) than burning coal or petroleum products to produce an equal amount of energy.”

Yet, even with all of these benefits considered, environmental activists would rather push out-of-touch policies that drive up prices for families and businesses and wreak havoc on consumer choice.

Unfortunately, 77 other municipalities across the country have introduced or adopted some form of a ban on natural gas hookups under the banner of climate change. Some cities are even going so far as to require electrification retrofits in existing buildings and new remodels.

Washington became the first state to introduce a statewide mandate that requires all newly constructed buildings to feature electric heating and hot water systems.

And on the East Coast, Maryland’s ambitious Climate Solutions Now Act included a provision that requires the development of all-electric building code recommendations in an effort to achieve the state’s lofty goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2045.

Every jurisdiction is different, but these ordinances all share one thing in common: In eliminating the option for natural gas appliances, they ultimately force consumers to rely on more expensive, less reliable forms of energy. <Source>

The damage is long-term as the cost to retrofit a house with gas is a significant expense – and when considering multiple rental units, unlikely to happen. Being locked into exorbitantly high energy costs that only profit the utility shareholders.

Bottom line…

The elite progressive communist democrats, immune from the consequences of their actions, are materially damaging America in an almost irreversible and immediately undetectable manner, thus crippling our economy and way of life in favor of an unproven scientific hypothesis.

The manufactured science findings are almost irrelevant at this point; the damage is not.

It is time to vote the progressive communist democrats out of office and demand answers from those seeking to destroy America from within.

We are so screwed.

DEMOCRAT'S NAKED POWER GRAB IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY

LACO-FLAG

County sheriffs, unlike police officers, are elected officials who have sworn an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, have similar but different duties, and are not under the control of partisan politicians with a malignant agenda.

Therefore, it is alarming that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, all progressive communist democrats, except for one conservative, is attempting a naked power grab by voting to create a ballot measure to oust the duly elected Sheriff from office and appoint a replacement.

LA County Board of Supervisors Voted on Ballot Measure to Oust Elected Sheriff From Office

The Board of Supervisors voted to draft the ballot measure 4-1 in order to potentially have the power to remove not only Sheriff Villanueva but also appoint a Sheriff of their choosing. The one Supervisor who did not vote in favor of this was Kathryn Barger, the lone, common sense, centrist Republican. The same four people who voted for this measure also voted to defund the police. Barger was the lone person who refused to defund the police. Now, the Supervisors want to take down the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department by ousting Villanueva.

Supervisor Barger said this about the vote today:

This proposed Charter Amendment sets a dangerous precedent and creates a slippery slope for the Board of Supervisors to override the will of the voters. The Sheriff of Los Angeles County, as in all other counties across California, is a constitutionally elected officer, democratically elected every four years. Considering that the current Sheriff is less than four months away from their election, the timing of this action seems highly political.”

“If the goal of this Board is ‘Promoting Accountability and Community Safety Through Check and Balances,’ then this action should include all County elected officials – the Assessor, the District Attorney and the Supervisors themselves. A Charter Amendment focused on only one office undermines the credibility of the Board and its underlying intentions.”   <Source>   

How you get rid of a corrupt, incompetent, or malfeasant sheriff is already defined in law…

As a charter county, Los Angeles has express constitutional power to amend its charter to provide removal procedures for elected county officers like its Sheriff. Charter counties have two primary options for removing their sheriffs: recall by the voters and removal by the county governing body. But because the state constitution requires all sheriffs to be elected, a charter county's board of supervisors cannot convert the Sheriff into an appointed position. Nor can a board of supervisors interfere with a sheriff's independent investigative function; consequently, a board's direct-removal powers can be exercised only for cause, such as official misconduct. <Source>

What is disturbing about this ballot proposal is not that the County Board of Supervisors can remove a sitting sheriff, but they have the power to appoint one of their choosing – likely a fellow progressive communist democrat willing to pursue their socialist agenda and quash dissent in the county.

Malignant ballot measures…

Los Angeles voters just delivered a huge win for the defund the police movement

LA’s “Yes on J” campaign flipped the message from defunding cops to investing in everything else. It worked brilliantly.

Los Angeles voters have approved Measure J, also known as “Reimagine LA County,” which requires that 10 percent of the city’s unrestricted general funds — estimated between $360 million and $900 million per year — be invested in social services and alternatives to incarceration, not prisons and policing.

In practice, that is exactly what Measure J is likely to do. The measure’s language does not explicitly require that the funds for social services and incarceration alternatives must be diverted from law enforcement and the prison system. Nevertheless, in an August board meeting, acting county chief executive Fesia Davenport said that the Sheriff’s Department — which accounts for $2 billion of the existing local budget — would likely be impacted.

The fact that Measure J echoes demands to defund the police isn’t an accident. The charge to support the initiative was led by the Re-Imagine L.A. County coalition: a collection of almost 100 local racial and criminal justice organizations, including Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, progressive political groups, and local unions — many of which had been at the forefront of the successful organizing effort to stop LA County’s $2.2 billion jail expansion plan in 2019. <Source>

Bottom line…

Because the incumbent Sheriff faces an election in four months, where the will of the people will be expressed, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is telegraphing that they will not respect that vote and replace Sheriff Villanueva on a trumped-up charge (much like those levied against Donald Trump) soon after the election.

Secondarily, county resources are being used to disparage a single candidate for office to interfere with a legitimate election by publicizing the Sheriff's alleged poor performance --whether true or not.

We are so screwed, considering that the County of Los Angeles is devolving into a cesspool of corruption, chaos, crime, disrepair, and seediness as funds are prioritized for ineffective and wasteful social programs rather than public safety and infrastructure.

BOHICA: BEND OVER, HERE IT COMES AGAIN

Here it comes… the progressive communist democrats’ 2022 mid-term vaccine ploy to reassert control over elections…

Report

US PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY

The US government is expected to once again renew its determination that the COVID-19 pandemic constitutes a public health emergency, first set in January 2020. The current extension is set to expire on July 15, when the next extension is set to take effect. The emergency designation allows millions of low-income Americans who might not otherwise be eligible to access Medicaid coverage; US regulators to authorize vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics for COVID-19; flexibilities around telehealth services; and states to access pandemic-related funds. The government has said it will give 60 days’ notice before ending the emergency designation to allow states and companies time to prepare. The US has averaged between 100,000 and 110,000 new daily COVID-19 cases and about 300 daily COVID-19 deaths since May.

REINFECTION RISK

The Omicron BA.5 subvariant has quickly become the most predominant circulating variant in the US due to its ability to evade immunity from either previous infection or vaccination, dashing hopes of a COVID-19 pandemic reprieve. The subvariant is more likely to cause reinfections and is driving a wave of new infections across the country, with official US CDC data showing a daily average of around 100,000 new cases. But experts warn this represents a severe undercount of new cases, as many people are using home tests and not reporting their results to health authorities. Notably, the Walgreens COVID-19 Positivity Tracker shows a weekly 41.6% positivity rate, up nearly 9% over the prior week and the highest since the tracker began.

<Source>

Remember, the case count is bogus as it is directly proportional to testing. Look at hospitalizations and deaths within your age range with similar co-morbidities. Look for the governors and state legislators to use this emergency again to affect voting rules and restrictions on observers getting close to the ballots. Hopefully, the response will be so massive as to nullify any partisan tampering.

Fauci, the oracle, speaks…

Fauci admits that COVID-19 vaccines do not protect ‘overly well’ against infection

fauci-fox

White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci conceded that COVID-19 vaccines do not protect “overly well” against infection Tuesday on “Your World.”

DR. FAUCI: One of the things that’s clear from the data [is] that even though vaccines - because of the high degree of transmissibility of this virus - don’t protect overly well, as it were, against infection, they protect quite well against severe disease leading to hospitalization and death. And I believe that’s the reason, Neil, why at my age, being vaccinated and boosted, even though it didn’t protect me against infection, I feel confident that it made a major role in protecting me from progressing to severe disease. And that’s very likely why I had a relatively mild course. So my message to people who seem confused because people who are vaccinated get infected - the answer is if you weren’t vaccinated, the likelihood [is] you would have had [a] more severe course than you did have when you were vaccinated. <Source>

Riddle me this: When is a vaccine not a vaccine? Answer: When it’s defined by progressive communist democrats based on politics, not science.

CDC Emails: Our Definition of Vaccine is “Problematic”

CDC: Problematic Vaccine? No, Problematic Definition of Vaccine.

The prior CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination (August 26, 2021):

Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.

The CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination since September 1, 2021:

Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce protection from a specific disease.

To many observers, it appeared the CDC changed the definitions because of the waning effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines. For example, the effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine falls over time, with an Israeli study reported in August 2021 as showing the vaccine being “only 16% effective against symptomatic infection for those individuals who had two doses of the shot back in January.” The CDC recognizes the waning effectiveness, thus explaining their promotion of booster shots.

CDC emails we obtained via the Freedom of Information Act reveal CDC worries with how the performance of the COVID-19 vaccines didn’t match the CDC’s own definition of “vaccine”/“vaccination”. The CDC’s Ministry of Truth went hard at work in the face of legitimate public questions on this issue.

In one August 2021 e-mail, a CDC employee cited to complaints that “Right-wing covid-19 deniers are using your ‘vaccine’ definition to argue that mRNA vaccines are not vaccines…”

After taking some suggestions, the CDC’s Lead Health Communication Specialist went up the food chain to propose changes to the definitions: “I need to update this page Immunization Basics | CDC since these definitions are outdated and being used by some to say COVID-19 vaccines are not vaccines per CDC’s own definition.” <Source>

Bottom line…

We are so screwed when we can’t trust our government, to tell the truth, our government infantilizes adults, and our scientists pervert science to serve the regime’s political agenda.

THE LATEST STAUS SYMBOL: RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT

DEBATE

Our political system is so precarious that almost anyone with a modicum of national name recognition, a relatively modest amount of money, the ability to attract media attention, and a sufficiently large number of fans across the United States could conceivably run for president.

Unfortunately, know-nothing egomaniacal celebrities have the appropriate qualifications. A fact laughingly illustrated by the cliché, "politics is show business for ugly people."

Even though they may not have a snowball's chance in hell of winning their party's nationwide nomination, the prestige, perks, and profits are enormously attractive.

  • Career-enhancing media exposure.
  • The prestige of being identified as a former presidential candidate.
  • Using the proceeds from collecting a large amount of tax-free money that can be spent on attracting more career-boosting publicity and which can later be traded to a likely winner for a position in the government as an appointee or to several "no-show, six-figure" commissions, boards, and advisory groups.
  • While Secret Service protection is unlikely if you are not a front-runner, local security is often provided at no charge, especially if you are campaigning with prominent local, state, or national politicians.

If you think this scenario is impossible, consider the campaign and successful election of a certain reality star billionaire businessman with a dodgy history of business failures and associations with dodgy individuals.

The sad truth is that, in these times when the population is deeply divided, you no longer have to win an overwhelming majority mandate, only squeak by in each of the battleground states for a win in the Electoral College.

It has been done before -- and we were lucky to have a president whose native instincts, whether for good or simply ego gratification, benefited the nation more than any modern president.

There is no doubt that our nation is in deep trouble.

There is a lack of decent, honorable, and capable leadership. The shadow presidency is being run by the proxies of a progressive communist democrat who hates America and is attempting to destroy our exceptional nation from within.

Our formerly free press, with its modicum of "journalist ethics," is no longer free but serves as a propaganda arm of the progressive communist democrats.

Even worse, I am no longer confident that the opposition is not similarly corrupt, incompetent, and untrustworthy.

To say we are screwed is an understatement.

Larry Elder Is Considering a Presidential Run in 2024

ElderFormer California gubernatorial candidate and radio host Larry Elder says he is considering a 2024 Presidential run. This comes after he was the frontrunner in the Newsom recall race. Elder finished first among recall candidates and second behind Newsom in 2021.

For those who may not know, Elder received 3,563,867 during the recall, equivalent to 48.5 percent of the vote among recall candidates. Some might argue that the recall would have been successful had Elder stayed out of the race. Polls showed the recall in a tie until Elder entered the race. It seemed like Elder thought, due to name recognition, he should announce his run for Governor on Sean Hannity’s Fox News prime-time show, which would ensure a successful recall. <Source>

I JUST DON'T GIVE A RAT'S ASS...

Rat

Does anyone care about Communism 3.0 -- also known as the Democrat Party?

Does anyone really care that former President Donald Trump called billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk a “bullshit artist?”

Does anyone really believe the January 6 Committee who refuses to corroborate easily verifiable hearsay presented as facts before they portray them as “evidence?”

Does anyone really care that Joe Biden is a doddering old fool being managed by Jill Biden and former Obama staff members?

Does anyone believe that the media refuses to verify a “too good to be true” story about a ten-year-old and her abortion travails?

I care that my gas is $6.49!

I care that my ribeye costs $17/pound.

I care that my lawn looks like crap with the new water restrictions.

Bottom line…

We are so screwed.

CRITICAL RACE THEORY IS A COMMUNIST CROCK

COLOR-CONSULTANT
Have you noticed that those who are advocating the use of Critical Race Theory are mostly Queer Marxists or those who personally profit from racial politics?

Individuals and organizations attempting to foment a racial revolution using identity politics to create a division in the populace and incentivize the destruction of morals, ethics, religion, tradition, and our most trusted institutions?

Openly attacking a culture of individuality and exceptionalism; favoring a collective culture of mediocrity and the need for governmental supervision of your thoughts and behavior?

One of these illustrations was created as a joke, the other as a training aid...

RACISM-1

This is an actual training aid with the material taken from "Dismantling Racism: A Workbook for Social Change Groups" by Kenneth Jones and Tema Okun...

Below is a list of characteristics of white supremacy culture which show up in our organizations. Culture is powerful precisely because it is so present and at the same time so very difficult to name or identify. The characteristics listed below are damaging because they are used as norms and standards without being pro-actively named or chosen by the group. They are damaging because they promote white supremacy thinking. They are damaging to both people of color and to white people. Organizations that are people of color-led or a majority people of color can also demonstrate many damaging characteristics of white supremacy culture. <Source

TRAINING-1

This nonsense is being used to wrest control of corporations from the shareholders and insert social justice warriors into the decision-making process as "stakeholders" with their artificial ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) guidelines, rules, regulations, and ratings. Corporations are not democratic institutions run by a mobocracy or a source of funding for grifters.

In my world, you come to work with an essential skill set to perform a function, not to learn how to become a better person or political activist. Beyond safety issues, your employment should not be a Marxist social experiment. All that is wrong with today's work environment can be seen in the malignant influence of the modern union with its progressive communist democrat bias. 

Both illustrations are representative of the malignancy that is the social justice movement.

Creating cultural Nazis in our schools and places of employment...

Rather than create a group of well-adjusted productive individuals, Critical Race Theory proponents are creating a group of dissatisfied, disaffected, and disillusioned individuals who have lost touch with reality and see everything through the lens of racism. They attribute their lack of achievement to systemic forces that ignore the fact that the system is controlled by the people who promote this CRT nonsense.

For those who have a vague understanding of CRT, it was created as an academic tool to analyze the impact of race on society, culture, and life to identify and improve race-based "social justice."

The concept of a tool has been hijacked into an openly Marxist and racist movement in its intent and practice, with the fundamental flaw of disadvantaging one racially-selected group to advantage another racially-selected group to redress historical grievances and explain why a particular segment of mostly U.S. Blacks are under-performers  -- and whose criminal behavior is disproportionate to their percentage representation in the general population.

Bottom line...

Have you noticed that the CRT movement is aligned with the progressive communist democrats, the people who deny American exceptionalism, freedom, and the resilient independence that made this nation the greatest in the history of mankind? Primarily to distract the weak-minded from noticing that it was the Democrats who are associated with slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism?

All you need to know is that human nature is not easily overcome, people have different abilities, and the equality of opportunity builds societies, while equality of outcomes builds despotism. And the prime directive should be the "Golden Rule" of treating others as one wants to be treated. 

We are so screwed.

ADAM SCHIFF IS AFRAID, VERY AFRAID OF THE UPCOMING GOP REVOLT

SCHIFF-TRUST-ME

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), locally known as the Bug-eyed Burbank Bolshevik, is trying to legally prevent any congressional committee or court from obtaining evidence from the U.S. military…

It should come as no surprise that liar/leaker/perjurer Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, is attempting to thwart any investigation of the progressive communist democrats' actions to subvert or weaken the U.S. military with their counter-productive woke social engineering policies, in addition, to the harm caused to American soldiers by vaccine mandates.

In an attempt to thwart congressional oversight or legal discovery in court cases before the likely upcoming Republican majority in the House of Representatives, Schiff is trying to keep Congress, the media, and the American people from discovering the potentially treasonous actions of those who have subverted and weakened our military.

Proposed Amendment to H.R. 7900 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023

AMENDMENT TO RULES COMMITTEE PRINT 117– 54
OFFERED BY MR. SCHIFF OF CALIFORNIA

At the end of subtitle E of title V, add the following new section:

SEC. 5ll. EXCLUSION OF EVIDENCE OBTAINED WITHOUT PRIOR AUTHORIZATION.

Section 271 of title 10, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new sub section:

"(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any information obtained by or with the assistance of a member of the Armed Forces in violation of section 1385 of title 18, shall not be received in evidence in any trial, hearing, or other proceeding in or before any court, grand jury, department, officer, agency, regulatory body, legislative committee, or other authority of the United States, a State, or a political subdivision thereof.". <Source>

What information might the progressive communist democrats be trying to hide from Congressional committees or the courts?

  • Information on wrongdoing presented by a whistleblower in the military?
  • Information on the command and control structure of the Afghanistan withdrawal?
  • The number of Americans abandoned behind enemy lines in Afghanistan where they were hunted, captured, and tortured?
  • Misuse and disposition of massive cash infusions into Afghanistan, Ukraine, Iran, and elsewhere?
  • Deaths and injuries associated with mandated vaccination programs?
  • Participation and/or use of military assets or services associated with the January 6 Capitol riots?
  • Use of military assets to spy on Americans without proper authorization?
  • Inappropriate contact and collusion between members of Congress and the military?
  • Hiding committee minutes, testimony, and materials from discovery by inserting a brief passage containing military intelligence?
  • Information withheld from the National Command Authority (President Trump)?

Is this the precursor to shredding documents by congressional committees presently led by progressive communist democrats to keep from being held accountable for unconstitutional abuses of power?

Adam Schiff's committees have withheld thousands of documents and sworn statements – many of which they distorted, mischaracterized, and leaked. The committees refuse to release information demonstrating they have altered evidence and testimony that would be readily apparent when the full documents are released.

Or, could the real reason behind this legislation have been revealed in the official list of amendments to H.R. 7900 - National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023, where item #540, Version 1, reads...

"Prohibits the use of evidence obtained by or with the assistance of a member of the Armed Forces in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act in a court or other legal proceeding." <Source>

Are the progressive communist democrats attempting to keep service members and others from exposing the military's violation of the Posse Comitatus Act by using the military in a domestic law enforcement capacity? 

The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law signed on June 18, 1878, by President Rutherford B. Hayes which limits the powers of the federal government in the use of federal military personnel to enforce domestic policies within the United States.

Leading to the supposition that the military intelligence may have been used in domestic activities, either to surveil certain Americans, insert agitators into insurrections, or otherwise violate local, state, or federal laws. 

Bottom line…

The easiest way to pass corrupt, misleading, or partisan legislation without major debate and roll-call votes is to submit it as an amendment to "must-pass" legislation like the National Defense Authorization Act.

Until Schiff explains the purpose of his amendment and inserts appropriate limitations, it should be assumed to have been submitted with hostile, partisan intent like most of everything Schiff does in Congress.

We are so screwed.

THE RED FLAG LAW THAT IS DESPERATELY NEEDED

KILLER-RED-FLAGThere is little or no doubt in my mind that the progressive communist democrats are incentivizing the destruction of morals, ethics, religion, tradition, and our most trusted institutions.

It is they who have created a group of dissatisfied, disaffected, and disillusioned young men who have lost touch with reality and see media promote horrific acts for ratings. Dead, dying, or injured people are viewed abstractly as if they exist in a video game.

I believe the problem with the increasing rate of mass murder has little to do with gun control and everything to do with the realization that something in our culture is creating a generation of flawed, disaffected young males. Many of them are medicated to avoid dangerous psychological ailments and suicidal ideation. And woe to the world when they stop taking the meds they may intensely dislike.

It appears, at least to me, that the culture shift attributed can be attributed to the progressive communist democrats, their media propagandists, and the tech industry -- all having a  profound sociological and psychological effect on today's young men.

They are affecting everything from their perceived sexual orientation, artificial restrictions and limitations on their natural behaviors, their technology-driven isolation from human interaction in favor of electronic devices, and the creation of alternate realities where Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms are accepted as being representations of reality. These young men look at the one percent of top influencers on Instagram with their hot girlfriends, cars, clothing, and toys and become dissatisfied because these accouterments are not within their reach.

They are not so much educated as indoctrinated, primarily by progressive women, and are ill-served when facing street life's realities. They are promised equity, inclusion, and a path to the good life. They still can't get a girlfriend or anything resembling "the good life—a situation guaranteed to produce anger at themselves and society at large.

The toys might be present for those with wealthier parents, but often the parents are absent. The father is working, and the mother is doing "good works" with her vapid friends.

It's even worse for those who are wards of the state, living in single-parent homes, or involved in the drama and activism of an unconventional household.

They are desensitized to violence. They are distracted, undisciplined, and disoriented. They may have been given psychotropic drugs or indulged in street drugs, not to get high but to alleviate the pain of their existence.

Is it any wonder they act out?

Unlike my youth when every parent on the block treated you the same as their children, these young men are surrounded by a community that doesn't give a damn as everyone is too busy with their own lives.

The progressives shun religion. The progressives ignore tradition. The progressives corrupt stabilizing institutions with their regressive Marxist ideology and calls for revolution.

Young men are expected to behave like obedient young girls -- frightened by bad words and obscene gestures.

Bottom line...

Progressive communist democrats are corrupt and evil, destroying our nation, culture, and society. They must be stopped.

Many young men today are a conflicted and tormented group, living in a bubble of their own making, and confusing online life with reality.

Gun control is not the answer. We must fundamentally re-think what we have allowed to happen with today's young men and reverse course—rejecting liberalism for a return to more conservative times.

What's left if you are a 120-pound, freakish-looking young male who is a loner with few friends?

The most dangerous red flag flying in our land is that of the progressive communist democrat. The people who declare criminals, crazies, and terrorist should enjoy unrestricted freedom and their rights supersede the rights of potential or actual victims. 

We are so screwed.

DOES THE FBI WANT TO OWN YOUR CHILD'S INFORMATION? YOUR'S TOO?

Fbi-clouseu

“I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

The leadership of the FBI refuses to respond forthrightly to Congressional oversight inquiries, in many cases deflecting, dissembling, lying, or outright refusing to answer legitimate questions. The leadership has openly lied to the Court, spied on Americans, and participated in an attempted coup to thwart a presidency. Losing trust with the American people in the process.

And now they are asking you to place your children’s information in their dirty hands.

Is this a surreptitious back door to your phone, contacts, network, and passwords?

Bottom line…

It sounds like an excellent idea at first, and when you consider that you cannot trust its creator or intent, it doesn’t seem like such a great idea.

I want to see an enforceable privacy statement -- with the leadership going to prison if any data is collected and stored.

We are so screwed.

STAND BY FOR PROGRESSIVE SCREAMING: SCOTUS IS RIGGING THE 2024 ELECTION

Be forewarned; the progressive communist democrats will attack the Supreme Court again…

This time it will be Moore v. Harper (Docket 21–1271), which the Supreme Court recently agreed to hear next term as the latest raison d'être to proclaim that the wrong decision will result in the end of democracy.

The issue is gerrymandering and how district boundaries are drawn – leaving the matter up to the state legislatures and excluding interference from the Executive and the Judiciary.

The issue is informed by the language of the U.S. Constitution, specifically the Elections Clause in Article One, which states, "The times, places and manner of holding elections for senators and representatives, shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof."

The theory of the independent state legislatures doctrine implies only the state legislatures may make any decisions related to election law and prevent any actions from courts or the executive branch from challenging it.

The Supreme Court granted certiorari on June 30, 2022, and the question to be presented is…

Whether a State's judicial branch may nullify the regulations governing the "Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives . . . prescribed . . . by the Legislature thereof," U.S. CONST. art. I, § 4, cl. 1, and replace them with regulations of the state courts' own devising, based on vague state constitutional provisions purportedly vesting the state judiciary with power to prescribe whatever rules it deems appropriate to ensure a "fair" or "free" election. <Source: SCOTUS>

The trigger…

In an order entered on February 4, the North Carolina Supreme Court invalidated the North Carolina General Assembly’s congressional maps and remanded to state trial court for remedial proceedings. Rather than seek immediate review in this Court, Applicants engaged in a good-faith effort to craft a congressional map that would be valid under the state Supreme Court’s order.

Yet in an order entered on February 23, the North Carolina trial court rejected that map and instead mandated the use of a new map that had been created by a group of Special Masters and their team of assistantswho, to make matters worse, designed their own, judicially-crafted map after engaging in ex parte communications with experts for the plaintiffs. Applicants immediately sought a stay from the North Carolina Supreme Court, but that stay was promptly denied. <Source: SCOTUS>

Not only did the North Carolina Supreme Court improperly craft their own map, but they also did it in a partisan manner with the assistance of a plaintiff's experts in the absence of the opposition.

Why this is important…

As we saw in the 2020 election, the United States Supreme Court rejected hearing a similar argument from Pennsylvania. The failure of the Court to rule that electoral matters were the sole jurisdiction of the state legislature opened up a can of worms where election commissions and the courts bypassed the state legislatures to craft rules that weakened election controls and seemingly promoted election "irregularities." (i.e., election rigging)

A favorable Supreme Court ruling upholding the independent state legislatures doctrine will prevent the progressive communist democrats from interfering with the 2024 presidential election by turning to the Obama/Biden regime's Executive Branch Department of Justice, headed by the corrupt and partisan Attorney General Merrick Garland, to decide state electoral matters using their bogus "sue and settle" modus operandi or for tying up the matter with court challenges to block implementation using a partisan federal judge willing to issue a temporary restraining order.

.Already, cries of angst and charges of pre-rigging the 2024 election are filling the media…

Even Governing Magazine went off the deep end...

The Supreme Court Case That Could ‘End American Democracy’
What seems like a narrow point of law could have profound consequences for American elections — including the race for the White House in 2024.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case in its fall term that has the potential to make partisan gerrymandering an unstoppable political force and gut voting rights protections. That may be a best-case scenario.

“This would be the most disruptive opinion in election law — ground shaking, groundbreaking, revolutionary, whatever word you could use,” says Douglas Spencer, a law professor at the University of Colorado. "I think it would be worse than disruptive. I think it would be destructive."

The independent state legislature theory not only cuts against the American system of checks and balances, but would deliver a blow to federalism, potentially taking state courts out of the equation when it comes to election law, leaving federal courts the only arbiter.

“The independent state legislature theory is a lawless power grab by the federal courts masquerading as deference to a romanticized vision of the state legislature that fails to take state institutional design choices seriously on their own terms,” write Leah Litman and Katherine Shaw in a forthcoming law review article. “The dangerousness and lawlessness of the independent state legislature theory are difficult to overstate.”<Source>

Another Alito leak is unnecessary…

I hope the Alito dissent is the precursor to the actual decision.

This case presents an exceptionally important and recurring question of constitutional law, namely, the extent of a state court’s authority to reject rules adopted by a state legislature for use in conducting federal elections. There can be no doubt that this question is of great national importance. But we have not yet found an opportune occasion to address the issue.

We will have to resolve this question sooner or later, and the sooner we do so, the better. This case presented a good opportunity to consider the issue, but unfortunately the Court has again found the occasion inopportune.

In my view, the applicants have shown that the question presented by this case easily satisfies our usual criteria for certiorari, see this Court’s Rule 10, and it is also likely that they would prevail on the merits if review were granted.

The Elections Clause provides that rules governing the “Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives” must be “prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.” Art. I, §4, cl. 1 (emphasis added). This Clause could have said that these rules are to be prescribed “by each State,” which would have left it up to each State to decide which branch, component, or officer of the state government should exercise that power, as States are generally free to allocate state power as they choose.

But that is not what the Elections Clause says. Its language specifies a particular organ of a state government, and we must take that language seriously.

In this case, after North Carolina gained a seat in the House of Representatives, the North Carolina General Assembly twice adopted new congressional districting maps. But on both occasions, the State Supreme Court rejected those maps and ultimately ordered that the 2022 election proceed on the basis of a map of the court’s own creation. The court justified its actions on the ground that the General Assembly’s maps constituted partisan gerrymanders and thus violated a congeries of state constitutional provisions. But none of those provisions says anything about partisan gerrymandering, and all but one make no reference to elections at all.

The applicants, who are members of the North Carolina Legislature, contend that the State Supreme Court took it upon itself to decide the “Manner” in which the State’s congressional elections will be held and that the court therefore usurped the power that the Elections Clause confines to the “Legislature.”

The other side answers that state election laws must be interpreted and applied by the state courts, that this is what the State Supreme Court did in this case when it interpreted and applied the State Constitution, and that this Court has no authority to overrule a state supreme court’s interpretation of state law.

Both sides advance serious arguments, but based on the briefing we have received, my judgment is that the applicants’ argument is stronger. The question presented is one of federal not state law because the state legislature, in promulgating rules for congressional elections, acts pursuant to a constitutional mandate under the Elections Clause.

And if the language of the Elections Clause is taken seriously, there must be some limit on the authority of state courts to countermand actions taken by state legislatures when they are prescribing rules for the conduct of federal elections. I think it is likely that the applicants would succeed in showing that the North Carolina Supreme Court exceeded those limits. <Source: SCOTUS>

Bottom line…

While the decision should be a 9-0 affirmation of the U.S. Constitution, it is more likely to be a 6-3 decision with the Court's liberals shouting against the wind.

If the Court does screw this up, electoral chaos will become a fact of life, and we will be majorly screwed.
