ELIZABETH WARREN'S WAR CRY: MORE TAXES

Yes, by all means, let the taxpayer provide additional funding to the government to teach little boys to be obedient little girls…

EWARREN

And, if that isn’t their height of stupidity, consider the Reason editor who suggests that the “Republican with the best chance of beating Biden in 2024 is … Mitt Romney.”

Mrt

Maybe the progressives have it right about intersectionality. Here we find stupidity intersecting with incompetence on a background on incoherent, chaotic idiocy.

Like Joe Biden giving a speech in which he says, "I’m sick of this stuff! The American people think the reason for inflation is the government spending more money. Simply. Not. True." A bald-faced lie from a congenital liar. 

We are so screwed when this crap passes for intelligent reasoning. Any party that would knowingly allow an incoherent, incompetent, senile racist to champion their party is pure evil and architecting the downfall of the United States of America.

WORLD WAR III HAS BEGUN

Consider that America is under attack from Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, North Korea, and others.

We are at war with some of Earth's most extensive nuclear powers.

And, let us not forget the war within, spearheaded by the progressive communist democrats and their propagandists in the mainstream media. Aided and abetted by those who will censor news and opinion or cancel dissidents altogether.

Appeasement didn't work before and will certainly not work now. We should be all about deterrence through strength, not weakness through appeasement.

The rationale that it would be "escalatory" to permit, promote, or provide advanced weaponry or MiG-29 aircraft is false.

Threatening a chemical or biological attack should result in worldwide condemnation and coordinated response, especially after the costs of the Chinese Communist Virus, which resulted in a global pandemic.

Threatening a nuclear response, even in theatre, would result in a global catastrophic reaction. Indeed, if America were attacked, we would, of necessity, target China, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, North Korea, and other current and future threats.

We have never had such a weak, incompetent, and morally compromised leadership in the United States -- with many in the Obama/Biden Administration being openly hostile to America and a large number of Americans. Being divided into identities and taught that whites are oppressors and BIPOCs are victims. 

Bottom line...

SacThe answer is peace through strength.

There is no doubt in my mind that we are engaged in World War III.

The only question we need to consider is, can it be limited in scope and contained within Europe and Asia -- and, can it be done under the Democrat's corrupt and feckless regime?

I do not know the answers, but I know we are faced with a Biden Administration not equal to the task of protecting the United States. And the GOP appears weaker and less committed than the Democrats as they talk and talk and talk.

We are so screwed.

JOE BIDEN: THE TOUGH GUY AIN'T SO TOUGH

But, then again, what do you expect from a senile shell of a poseur politician who has been on the wrong side of foreign policy since he entered the Senate.

The White House is now confirming that the decision to deny Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine went all the way up to President Biden, who personally vetoed the jet delivery lest it provoke Vladimir Putin and risk escalating the war.

The logic seems to be that sending lethal anti-aircraft and antitank weapons won’t provoke the Russian, but 28 fixed-wing aircraft would. That distinction is hard to parse, especially when the Pentagon is also saying that the Ukrainians don’t need the jets because their other weapons are more effective. So sending less lethal aircraft will lead to World War III, but not arms that are really deadly?

The bigger problem is the message this fiasco sends to Mr. Putin about NATO. The essence of credible deterrence is making an adversary believe that taking certain actions will draw a response. By so ostentatiously not sending the fighters, and saying the reason is fear of escalation, Mr. Biden is telling the Russian what he doesn’t have to worry about. Instead of deterring Mr. Putin, Mr. Biden is letting the Russian deter the U.S.

This is becoming a pattern with the Commander in Chief. In Afghanistan he demanded a quick and dirty exit by a date certain lest he provoke the Taliban who had taken over the government. The result was an American humiliation that may have influenced Mr. Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine. <Source>

Like this guy, Biden can lead the United States against our enemies.

3-bagsbiden-angry

Unfortunately, a cackling idiot like Vice President Kamala Harris or a drunk House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would never be able to assume office in case of a national crisis.

How far down the Presidential Succession list would we have to go to find a qualified leader?

  1. Vice President Kamala Harris
  2. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi
  3. President pro tempore of the Senate Patrick Leahy
  4. Secretary of State Antony Blinken
  5. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen
  6. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin
  7. Attorney General Merrick Garland
  8. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland
  9. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack
  10. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo
  11. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh
  12. Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra
  13. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Marcia Fudge
  14. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg
  15. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona
  16. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough
  17. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas

Note: The Secretary of Energy, Jennifer Granholm, is not eligible to become President as she is only a naturalized citizen.

Thank the Democrats for supporting individuals based on their color, sex, gender, sexual preferences, and ideology over competence, allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, and love of America.

Bottom line…

  • The Democrats subverted an election.
  • The Democrats compromised natural security.
  • The Democrats weakened our military.
  • The Democrats dishonored America.
  • The Democrats weakened our economy.
  • The Democrats brought us massive inflation.

This is treason!

We are so screwed.

ADAM SCHIFF'S BIG LIE

The height of hypocrisy is that liar, leaker Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is selling expensive merchandise touting “Truth Matters.”

As-truth

Hey Stephen,

One of the most surreal and wonderful things to see while I’m out and about in LA, DC, or anywhere in-between is folks wearing a shirt or sweatshirt with a slogan of mine on it.

So my team and I put our heads together to come up with some new and improved merchandise. T-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, and more. My team tells me it’s “fresh.” Or something like that.

The grey sweatshirt below is one of my favorites – because the values of right, truth, and decency are more important than ever. I hope you’ll take a look!

Insert-m

I hope you like our new designs and find something that suits you. Can’t wait to see you out there!

— Adam

As we have seen from the proceedings of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, it appears that Adam Schiff is a congenital liar whose word, even under oath, is absolutely worthless.

I find it astounding and ludicrous that Schiff would even suggest he stands for right, truth, decency, or democracy when the documentary and testimonial evidence appears to demonstrate otherwise.

Bottom line…

The most dangerous politicians in the world are the ones we personally believe in and support -- because if they are corrupt, it impacts us with a substantial force that diminishes our belief in the system.

As for Adam Schiff, facts matter! Your record speaks for itself.

We are so screwed when progressive communist democrats like Adam Schiff purport to represent his constituents and ignore his sworn oath of office.

ARE THE NEOCONS IN THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION CONDITONING THE BATTLEFIELD FOR ESCALATION?

When you cannot trust the senior leadership of the United States government and the Department of State neocon apparatchiks who have a record of corruption and lying under oath when testifying before Congress, we are so screwed.

(1)  The United States used the pretext of “Weapons of Mass Destruction,” including chemical, biological, and radiological (nuclear) weapons, to preemptively invade Iraq in 2003, a foreign sovereign country. In retrospect, the claim was either not true or greatly exaggerated.

(2)  We now have the testimony of Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that claims that there are biological research facilities in Ukraine are accurate and the United States is concerned about a Russian attempt to access these facilities.

(3)  Does this revelation provide the same type of moral justification for the Russian invasion of Ukraine with the same comprehensive and devastating results we saw in Iraq?

(4)  Does this revelation provide the same type of moral justification for the Americans to mount an effort to secure these facilities and risk a severe escalation of the conflict? Especially after experiencing the effects of a global pandemic allegedly released from a  similar biological research facility in Communist China.

(5)  Should the United States seal-off the transport of immigrants and others seeking to enter the United States after escaping lethal danger should one of these laboratories be breached? 

(6)  Does this incursion and threat demand that our Southern Border be secured now?

(7)  Where is the United Nations considering that it appears an aggressor nation is perpetrating war crimes against innocent civilians? How does one handle the influence of Russia and China in the United Nations? 

What you are not seeing in the mainstream media...

Deleted Web Pages Show Obama Led an Effort To Build a Ukraine-Based BioLab Handling ‘Especially Dangerous Pathogens.'

A deleted web article recovered by The National Pulse reveals that former President Barack Obama spearheaded an agreement leading to the construction of Biolabs handling “especially dangerous pathogens” in Ukraine.

The news comes on the same day that Biden regime apparatchik Victoria Nuland told the U.S. Senate that the American government is concerned about biological research facilities falling into Russian hands as a result of the ongoing conflict in Eastern Europe.

Originally posted on June 18th, 2010, the article “Biolab Opens in Ukraine” details how Obama while serving as an Illinois Senator, helped negotiate a deal to build a level-3 biosafety lab in the Ukrainian city of Odessa.

The article, which also highlighted the work of former Senator Dick Lugar, was additionally included in Issue No. 818 of the United States Air Force (USAF) Counterproliferation Center’s Outreach Journal.

“Lugar said plans for the facility began in 2005 when he and then-Senator Barack Obama entered a partnership with Ukrainian officials. Lugar and Obama also helped coordinate efforts between the U.S and Ukrainian researchers that year in an effort to study and help prevent avian flu,” explained author Tina Redlup.

A 2011 report from the U.S. National Academy of Sciences’ Committee on Anticipating Biosecurity Challenges of the Global Expansion of High-Containment Biological Laboratories explained how the Odessa-based laboratory “is responsible for the identification of especially dangerous biological pathogens.”

“This laboratory was reconstructed and technically updated up to the BSL-3 level through a cooperative agreement between the United States Department of Defense and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine that started in 2005. The collaboration focuses on preventing the spread of technologies, pathogens, and knowledge that can be used in the development of biological weapons,” the report continues.

“The updated laboratory serves as Interim Central Reference Laboratory with a depozitarium (pathogen collection). According to Ukrainian regulations, it has a permit to work with both bacteria and viruses of the first and second pathogenic groups,” explains the report.

A separate document detailing Ukraine’s biolab network from the BioWeapons Prevention Project outlines in greater detail the scope of pathogens the facility has conducted research with.

Among the viruses the lab studied were Ebola and “viruses of pathogencity group II by using of virology, molecular, serologica and express methods.”

Additionally, the lab provided “special training for specialists on biosafety and biosecurity issues during handling of dangerous biological pathogenic agents.” <Source>

Is it not likely that the Ukraine lab would follow the research and techniques developed in the Communist Chinese Wuhan lab? And, what to make of those who claimed that the existence of biowarfare labs in Ukraine was a “conspiracy theory?”

Bottom line…

Notice that the Chinese are now condemning U.S.-funded biological labs as their Wuhan lab’s moral equivalent. 

The three top leaders of the U.S. government, President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, are manifestly unfit to lead the United States in a time of serious conflict. Due to the actions of former President Obama, our military has been severely degraded, and our military’s leadership decimated. The degradation of our military has continued under the Biden Administration.

We have seen the global effects of a biological agent released by an enemy nation. We are in a time of unprecedented peril in modern history, with Russia subtly threatening the use of nuclear weapons should outside entities interfere in its conquest of Ukraine. 

And, there is but one action for the American citizen to consider. Hold the Democrat Party responsible for what has happened to our nation since the election of President Obama -- and the American media as co-conspirators in his effort to fundamentally transform the United States.

To say we are screwed is an understatement.

WHAT GOOD IS THE UNITED NATIONS?

Un-delegate

Preventing genocide

As stipulated in the Outcome Document of the 2005 United Nations World Summit, the duty to prevent and halt genocide and mass atrocities lies first and foremost with the State.

However, the international community has a responsibility to encourage and assist States in fulfilling this responsibility, and to use appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian and other means to protect populations from these crimes.

If a State is manifestly failing to protect its populations, the international community must be prepared to take collective action to protect populations, in accordance with the UN Charter.

It is now time to defund the United Nations and kick their sorry collective asses out of New York.

ALL YOU HAVE TO KNOW: NANCY PELOSI ENDORSES RACIST, CASTRO-LOVING BLACK COMMUNIST FOR L.A. CITY MAYOR

Can the L.A. sh*t-hole get any sh*ttier?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Endorses Rep. Karen Bass for Mayor of LA

"It is my honor and privilege to support my outstanding colleague and friend, Congresswoman Karen Bass -- the next mayor of Los Angeles."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed Rep. Karen Bass today in her campaign to become mayor of Los Angeles, calling her a "national leader and coalition builder.''

"She is masterful at bringing people together to work on big problems by staying focused on shared values. As her colleague and friend, I have seen Karen fight for social and economic justice for the people. She fights for health care for our families and education for our children,'' the San Francisco Democrat said in a video shared on Bass' campaign Twitter account. <Source>

Karen Bass: Possible Biden VP And Racial Radical Extremist? – OpEd

Another black female Democratic politician being vetted by presumptive party presidential nominee Joe Biden as a possible running mate has radical ties. Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) is scheduled to appear with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) at the July 31-August 1, 2020 annual convention of a black nationalist group devoted to pushing reparations for slavery. The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America’s 2019 meeting featured radical minister Louis Farrakhan as its keynote speaker.

“N’COBRA’s [2019] Convention was largely aided by the Nation of Islam. The NOI provided press, promotional and technical assistance before and during the convention and live streamed most of the activities,” black weekly newspaper The Chicago Crusader reported at the time.

“Psycho-Social” Systemic Racism

Bass, who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, is a co-sponsor of HR 40, a reparations bill for the descendants of American slaves. N’COBRA has dedicated itself to passing a reparations bill since its creation in 1987. “The 1989 issuance of HR 40 continues to be a prophetic pronouncement of what the United States of America must do to address its Achilles heel of systemic racism that continues to haunt and undermine the nation’s entire psycho-social, political, religious and economic fabric and future,” a N’COBRA “primer” on the history of the proposed legislation states.

N’COBRA is a black nationalist organization that believes the continuing fallout from slavery is the source of all problems plaguing the black community today. Even news that black Americans are reportedly more prone to be affected by the Coronavirus is attributed to genetic corrosion caused by slavery. “Due to the transgenerational epigenetic injury-the forced removal from Africa, a slave diet that consisted largely of cornmeal and fat, and 500 years of terror-Black people are highly susceptible to develop, at some point in their lifetimes, major diseases and life challenging illnesses than other ethnic groups in America,” the group states on its website. <Source>

Karen Bass’s history with Cuba should disqualify her from VP consideration

Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) is reputed to be among former vice president Joe Biden’s final choices to become his running mate. Her apparent lifelong fascination with Cuba’s Communist dictatorship should disqualify her from that honor.

In her youth, Bass was involved with a group called the Venceremos Brigade. The group, which still operates, has for decades brought American leftists to Cuba to visit and work on projects sponsored by the totalitarian government. The exact extent of her involvement is disputed: A communist newspaper from 1975 suggests she was a leader and organizer in her native Southern California while Bass herself has played down any leadership role but acknowledged multiple visits to Cuba with the Brigade to “build houses." Regardless, it’s clear that Bass was involved with an enterprise that had a goal of encouraging the health and survival of a despotic, evil regime.

It strains credulity to believe Bass didn’t know what she signed up for. “Venceremos” means “we shall triumph” in Spanish and has been a frequent word used by Communists in the Spanish world to describe their struggle. At a time when the United States actively opposed and embargoed the Communist island, it was clear to anyone with eyes whom the struggle was against and whose defeat such “triumph” would entail. Cuban dictator Fidel Castro frequently used the word in describing his purported struggle. He ended his speeches with “Patria o muerte! Venceremos!” (“Fatherland or death! We shall triumph!”) in an attempt to draw Cubans to back “the Revolution.” Even today, the Brigade extols the idea of “showing solidarity with the Cuban Revolution.”

Nor, it seems, has she completely lost the revolutionary ardor of her youth. When Castro died in 2016, she offered her condolences: “The passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba” she said, using the Spanish term of endearment that Communists have long used for him.<Source>

Bottom line…

It is time to stop the racists and communists from infiltrating every level of government: local, state, and federal.

We are so screwed.

THE BI-PARTISAN SCREWING OF SENIOR CITIZENS ON MEDICARE

There is no doubt in my mind that medical costs are rising in an aging population and that Medicare is quickly approaching insolvency, which would demand care rationing, delays, and denials of services. Likewise, Medicare reimbursement rates to medical professionals and facilities are declining, impacting the number of medical personnel retiring and the closure of facilities.

So what do “the people’s representatives” in Congress do?

They do the bidding of the postal unions, one of the larger special interest groups in the nation. Essentially, these miscreants, on both sides of the aisle, have created and passed H.R. 3076 – the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022.

Reform my ass!

The legislation transfers the medical costs of retired postal employees to Medicare. Newly retiring employees would be required to enroll in Medicare when eligible.

While this relieves costs at the poorly-managed, union-dominated Postal Service, it places an unnecessary burden on Medicare to the detriment of current and future Medicare recipients – hastening Medicare insolvency that is currently projected to occur sometime in 2026.

The Postal Service Reform Act cleared the House last month by 342-92  and cleared the Senate by 79-19. The Senate considered the bill as a clean bill with no amendments or needed to be returned to the House for approval before being sent to the President for his signature. 

Essentially, the bill's primary purpose is to clean up the USPS balance sheet by removing payments toward health care benefits for future retirees off the agency’s balance sheets.

What does the Congressional Budget Office say…

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the move could save the postal retirement and health programs about $5.6 billion through 2031 while adding $5.5 billion in costs to Medicare during that span and probably much more in later years.

The spin… Considering the massive size of Medicare — it spent $926 billion in 2020 — the costs really don't amount to much.

RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senator Rob Portman, the sole Republican who enabled Obama’s Iran nuclear deal, explains the deal…

“And this bill also, we have found out from CBO, does not impact or increase the Part B or the Part D premiums. Again, some people have said that, it’s just not true. So we know this because one of my colleagues asked CBO these questions in a letter. Some of us were already saying this because as an example, with regard to Part A, people have been paying in their whole lives, but they’re also already eligible for Part A, so they’re not going to add to Part A. But this colleague of mine wanted to be sure and get the answer from CBO. So he asked CBO this question, ‘What is the effect of the legislation on the Medicare Hospital Insurance Trust Fund?

“Here was the answer from CBO, and I quote:

‘Most people aged 65 or older are entitled to benefits under Medicare Part A, hospital insurance, if they have worked and paid Medicare taxes for an adequate number of quarters. Nearly all Medicare eligible USPS, that’s Postal Service annuitants, are already covered because entitlement to Part A is related primarily to a person’s age and employment history. CBO estimates that the legislation’s Medicare requirement would not increase the number of people receiving benefits under Part A. Therefore, the agency estimates that HR 3076 would not result in additional spending from the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund. Period.’

“No impact. My colleague also asked the CBO, ‘So what is the effect on Medicare premiums in Part B and Part D?’ The trust funds there, as you know, are funded by people paying premiums. But the question is, are the premiums going to go up in Part B and Part D? And the question really is, what is the effect on everybody. Here’s CBO’s reply:

‘Our preliminary analysis suggests that the legislation is unlikely to have an effect. CBO does not expect that Part D drug coverage premiums would change under HR 3076. Monthly premiums for Part B are set by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to finance one-quarter of the expected annual monthly Part B spending for all enrollees aged 65 or over, rounded to the nearest multiple of $0.10. To cause a change under HR 3076, the group of new enrollees would need to be large enough and their health care costs would need to be sufficiently different from the current averages to affect the average. CBO projects that under current law, Part B enrollment will increase from 64 million people in 2025, the year that HR 3076 would begin requiring certain USPS annuitants to enroll in Part B to 73 million people by 2031. CBO estimates that under the legislation, enrollment in Part B would increase by between 13,000 and 40,000 people over that period of time, or less than 0.1 percent of the program’s total enrollment. It is unlikely that an increase of that magnitude would affect the monthly Part B premiums.’

Well, in other words, what they’re saying is it won’t affect the premiums because it’s a drop in the bucket. We’re talking about 60 or 70 million people, and we’re talking about 13,000 to 40,000 people coming into Part B. By the way, again, these people paid their HI taxes all through their careers. CBO then continued relative to Part D. This is the drug benefit. And I quote: <Source>

Of course, that is bullshit. Something like President Joe Biden or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might have said when they told Americans that the multi-trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” plan costs absolutely nothing.

Biden-zero

Bear in mind that the CBO scores legislation based on the assumptions and parameters of the partisan legislator(s) asking the question. So we must ask what the CBO didn’t say.

Since the legislation becomes effective in 2025, the CBO scoring of cost estimates does not capture a full decade. It appears the scoring was based on five years, not the normal ten or twenty-year horizon -- times when costs increase massively, or there have been manifest tweaks to the legislation. Also not considered is the portion of the unfunded liabilities in the Postal Service Health Benefits Program (approximately $75 billion), which will be passed to Medicare in the future.

Bottom line…

This reminds me of an old congressional joke attributed to Senate Minority Leader Everett McKinley Dirksen (R-IL), who allegedly said, “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you're talking real money.”

No matter how you slice and dice the numbers, shifting costs from the Postal Service Health Benefits Program to Medicare will cost senior citizens promised quality health care in the future.

We are so screwed – and this time, it is a bi-partisan screwing.

-- steve

P.S I noticed AARP, advertised as the source of “the latest political news that affects older adults, including Medicare and social security policy changes,” failed to comment on this legislation that will impact their members.

IS THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION PAYING TO KILL YOU?

As we have seen, the Biden Administration is coordinating with their mainstream propagandists and social media tech tyrants to suppress or censor any dissenting news or opinion if it does not support or advance the regime's narrative.

But what happens when they censor factually accurate information but do not appreciate an independent interpretation of the facts?

Consider this report...

The Great Reset | Is Biden Administration Paying Hospitals to Kill COVID-19 Patients?

The factual accuracy of reimbursement information is easy to check on official government websites.

Certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Peterson Pierre received his medical degree and completed specialty training in dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Funny, he turns out to be a local physician I met when having a benign cyst removed from my eyelid. 

Bottom line...

Now what? What's next if you are a senior citizen without a robust support system and someone powerful enough to advocate on your behalf. Perhaps to the extreme of seeking a court order to compel a hospital to provide a known effective therapeutic as a last-ditch effort to save your life?

We are so screwed.

Unfortunately, what we are seeing is the end of a free society, where dissent, discussion, and debate are being curtailed by a public-private partnership that sees the government’s political narrative, propaganda, if you will, being highlighted in today’s corporatized mainstream media and front-loaded on social media streams. A loosely-coupled conspiracy censoring or canceling anything that questions the official government narrative as disinformation. 

Witness:

  • The current government narrative that vaccines are safe, effective, and suitable for individuals of all ages is crumbling everywhere except in the public-private media.
  • The current government narrative that a green environmental policy is beneficial to our nation, and by extension, to our citizens is demonstrably false to anyone who has visited a grocery store or gas station.
  • The current government narrative about diversity, equality, and inclusion is also demonstrably false when we see a two-tier legal system that allows politically-connected individuals and select minorities, including illegal aliens, to escape responsibility for their criminality and unconstitutional actions.

We are seeing a coordinated attempt by the political swamp and its media propagandists attempt to distract the American people from the corruption of their leaders, past and present,  and an effort to prevent Donald Trump, a known political disrupter, from running for the presidency in 2024.

As a demonstration of rampant political corruption, let us consider the failure to prosecute the Biden Crime Family for self-documented and confessed criminal activities which, in the case of President Biden, rise to the status of impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Or the corrupt Clinton Crime Family attempting to recapitalize and rebuild the Clinton Foundation – possibly a way to funnel illegal foreign funds to another Hillary campaign, a place to compensate Cintonista consultants ready to defend and promote Hillary Clinton, and a continuation of a massive political grift.

To the CGI Community:

In 2005, we at the Clinton Foundation decided to hold a new kind of meeting, timed to coincide with the United Nations General Assembly—one that would bring together a community of doers from across a broad section of society not only to discuss our world’s most pressing challenges but also to commit publicly to take specific, practical, measurable actions to address them. I had no earthly idea whether a model so different than any that had been tried before would work. But it turned out there was a hunger to create change, and to do it with unlikely partners who might otherwise never have the opportunity to meet or work together.

The need for that kind of cooperation and coordination has never been more urgent than it is now. The COVID-19 pandemic has ripped the cover off of longstanding inequities and vulnerabilities across our global community. The existential threat of climate change grows every day. Democracy is under assault around the world, most glaringly in Ukraine where Russia has launched an unjustified and unprovoked invasion that has put millions of lives in grave danger. The number of displaced people and refugees worldwide is higher than it has ever been—more than one in 95 of all people alive on the planet today has been forced to flee their home—and rising. And it seems that all across the globe, people are pulling away from those who are different from them—putting our future at greater risk and making it harder to solve the challenges and seize the opportunities in front of us.

To meet the urgency of this moment, I am calling on the CGI community to come together again—alongside new members and voices including influential emerging leaders and grassroots activists—beginning with a meeting in New York City this September.

Just like the world we’re living in, the September meeting will likely look different than the ones we held before. But what will not be different is the spirit that has driven CGI from the very beginning—the idea that we can accomplish more together than we can apart.

While the challenges our world faces today are steep, CGI has always been about what we can do, not what we can’t do. And by bringing diverse partners together to take action and achieve real results, we can create a culture of possibility in a world hungry for hope.

Thank you again for all that you have done and continue to do to create a better future. Hillary, Chelsea, and I look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks and months.

Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, and the threat from within…

We are fighting against the progressive communist democrats and the establishment republicans who are so eager to banish conservatives and potential Trump supporters that they are willing to side with the progressive communist democrats. RINO (Republicans In Name Only) turncoats adopting a “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” strategy which posits that two typically hostile parties can or should work together against a common enemy – in this case, conservatives and communists against another uncontrollable Trump Administration.

Bottom line…

We are at the mercy of Ivy League elites who are unabashedly ignorant as they tell us that the defense of Ukraine against Russian aggression is an urgent threat to the national security of the United States—ignoring a fundamental truth: that our foreign policy is to ensure peace and prosperity of the American people, not the broader international community.

Enough with the false narratives of a corrupt hyper-partisan intelligence apparatus that seems to be committed to a progressive communist democrat agenda.

It is bad enough that the Ivy League elites in the Biden Administration have empowered a Russian incursion into a sovereign Ukraine while the very same Biden Administration is attempting to revive a catastrophically bad nuclear deal with the “Death to America” crowd in Iran --  currently being brokered by our enemies, the Russians, and Communist Chinese.

It is hard to find words to describe the shit-show we are experiencing.

We are so screwed.
