THE LEADING SOURCE OF DISINFORMATION IN AMERICA IS THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

Dhs-watching

The Obama-controlled Biden Administration is pulling out all stops…

  • Trying to convince you that the Obama and Biden Administration was not manifestly corrupt and guilty of criminal activity.
  • Trying to convince you that Donald Trump was guilty of what the progressive communist democrats have done.
  • Trying to tell you the biggest lie of all -- that you need to vote Democrat to preserve democracy.

I wonder how the Disinformation Governance Board would treat this so-called information from the DHS Secretary?

Mayorkas’ Remarks at Racist Al Sharpton’s National Action Network Convention 2022

On April 8, 2022, Secretary Mayorkas delivered the following remarks to the National Action Network’s annual convention:

We are working at a time when we are seeing only an increase in hate. Or I should say perhaps, only an increase in the hate that is rising to the surface. And what we, in the Department of Homeland Security, have assessed it that the greatest terrorism-related threat that we face in the homeland is a threat of domestic violent extremism: individuals drawn to violence because of ideologies of hate or false narratives propagated on social media and other online platforms.  And the most prominent threat is the threat of white supremacists. And that came quite clearly to the surface when we saw over the past several months repeated and persistent bomb threats against Historically Black Colleges and Universities. <Source>

[OCS: Amazing, the most significant terrorism threat to the homeland is not Muslim terrorists or Black Marxist Nationals who have killed hundreds while looting and burning public and private property in several American cities? It’s not cyber terrorists who are stealing intellectual property and financial assets? It’s not the terrorists currently attacking Jewish Communities? No, according to DHS, the DHS has to mobilize against “white supremacists” – most of whom appear to be acting in concert with the FBI.]  

DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas insists Mexican border is secure

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas vowed to Congress on Wednesday that the U.S. will maintain control of the Mexican border amid the looming surge of migrants, insisting that the Biden administration has a plan for dealing with the expected influx of more than a half-million illegal immigrants a month.

Republicans were incredulous. They said Mr. Mayorkas’ agents and officers have revealed that they are already stretched beyond breaking and that the looming end of President Trump’s COVID-related border shutdown policy next month will make it worse.

“Do you believe front-line agents and officers?” Rep. John Katko of New York, the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, asked Mr. Mayorkas. “There’s not a single person on the border today that will tell you once Title 42 is lifted they won’t lose operational control.”

Title 42 is the statute allowing tighter security at the border based on the public health need to control the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr. Mayorkas said the border is secure and promised lawmakers: “We will not lose operational control of the border.” <Source>

[OCS: By any metric, our Southern border is not secure, the Border Patrol is demoralized, and illegal aliens are being transported to middle America by DHS under cover of darkness and secrecy.]

Mayorkas won't name 1 domestic terror, White supremacy case referred to DOJ

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas on Thursday failed to name a case of domestic terrorism that his department has referred to the Department of Justice.

Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., pressed Mayorkas for data on any referrals he has made to the DOJ on the grounds of domestic terrorism. Mayorkas did not offer the data, saying he would provide it after the hearing.

"Congressman, I will provide you with that information subsequent to this hearing," Mayorkas replied to Steube. "I do not have that statistic. I will provide the data to you."

"Despite claiming domestic terrorism is the #1 threat to the homeland, [Secretary Mayorkas] can’t name a single case that he referred from DHS to DOJ for white supremacy or domestic terrorism," Rep. Greg Steube later said of his exchange with Mayorkas<Source>

[OCS: One might assume that if domestic terrorism involving white supremacists were the number one threat to the homeland, Mayorkas would know of one or more prominent cases he referred to the Department of Justice.]

Jordan asks Mayorkas if new DHS 'disinformation' board will look into Fauci, Walensky statements

The Ohio Republican grill the DHS secretary over the announcement of a Disinformation Governance Board

After Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed his department's creation of a Disinformation Governance Board aimed at combating misinformation, Republican lawmakers were all over the announcement, accusing the Department of Homeland Security of going too far.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, joined the chorus of critics Thursday when he confronted Mayorkas face to face during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on oversight of DHS.

"Mr. Secretary, yesterday you announced the formation of Disinformation Governance Board at DHS. You put out a bulletin two months ago, a big fancy bulletin here, red, white and blue. You said that misleading narratives, mis-, dis-, and mal-information, MDM, as you call it, misleading narratives undermine the trust in government. I was just wondering, when the head of the CDC, Miss Walensky, said that the vaccinated can’t get the virus, did that undermine trust in government?"

Jordan went on to list more instances where current or former government officials put out significant statements that turned out to be questionable or even false.

"When the highest paid official in our government, the smartest man on the planet, Dr. Fauci, when he said the virus didn't come from a lab, did that undermine trust in government? And will that be something that this governing board will look at?" Jordan asked. "How about when 51 former intel officials told us that the Hunter Biden story was--had all the earmarks of Russian misinformation? Will that be something that this governance board that you just formed, will you be looking into that? "

Mayorkas responded without addressing Jordan's examples, only providing a statement on the board's purpose. <Source>

Bottom line…

MINISTRY_OF_TRUTH

We were just as horrified as you about the news that came out this week about Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ Disinformation Governance Board and its Chief, Nina Jankowicz.

The simple truth is that the progressive communist democrats are trying to hide the truth about their nefarious activities from the American people before the 2022 midterm elections. Long enough to run out the statute of limitations clock, which generally is about five years. Even if it means destroying the U.S. Constitution and its First Amendment freedoms with an Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board.

We are on the precipice of the abyss of darkness and slavery to a global elite.

We must fight back. Eliminating corrupt politicians in the 2022 midterm election and holding those responsible for damaging America accountable for their actions.

We are so screwed.

Is Nina Jankowicz, Biden's "Disinformation Governance Board" Chief, a negotiating ploy?

Just asking…

Did Biden's cadre of progressive communist democrat Obama acolytes select someone so extremely radical to head the DHS Disinformation Governance Board that the public will accept a lesser radical individual WITHOUT QUESTIONING THE NEED OR LEGALITY FOR SUCH A BOARD?

Considering her past performance, I wonder if she gave Joe Biden a blowjob or an ice cream cone?

Watch – Biden Truth Minister Sings: ‘Who Do I F*ck’ to Be ‘Rich, Famous, and Powerful’

Before her new job at the Department of Homeland Security, President Joe Biden’s new disinformation chief Nina Jankowicz displayed her musical talent on YouTube.

In one video, Jankowicz sings a version of “My Simple Christmas Wish (Rich, Famous, and Powerful)” by David Friedman.

I want to be rich famous and powerful! Step on all my enemies and never do a thing,” she sings as a piano plays in the background.

Jankowicz sang an edited version of the song to include “Who do I fuck” to be “famous and powerful,” instead of the original lyrics “who do I have to fake”

The video was first posted in 2015 by LA TI DO productions.

Jankowicz ultimately gave up her musical ambitions to pursue a career in tracking online disinformation and talking about its danger to democracy and national security.

The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday she would lead Biden’s “Disinformation Governance Board.” <Source>

Jankowicz is quite talented and reminds me of a smarter AOC.  

The Mary Poppins of disinformation...

She was a partisan advocate long before accepting the post to govern the Disinformation Governance Board...

Partisanship & Foreign Influence.

While participating in U.S. Congressional hearings, Jankowicz dismissed documented links between Ukrainian energy company Burisma and the Biden family, while calling for an increase in federally-funded media outlets and an “oversight” agency of social media platforms.

She described the well-documented business ties between the first son and Burisma as “perhaps the most well-known example of information laundering” and “unsubstantiated and misleading.”

Jankowicz is a former “disinformation fellow” at the partly government-funded Wilson Center and even advised the Ukrainian government as recently as 2016.

Additionally, she has repeatedly discussed Hunter Biden’s leaked hard drive on her Twitter account, where she has championed the censorship of stories containing reports of his foreign business deals with countries such as China, Russia, and Ukraine. <Source>

What are they hiding?

This is all a distraction from the upcoming indictment of Hunter Biden and the revelation of the Biden's family corruption.

How did Biden get away with escaping charges for lying on a gun purchase application, a drug addict in possession of a gun, narcotics violations, money laundering, tax evasion, acting as an unregistered foreign agent, and others involving sex and children? 

How did Joe Biden avoid corruption charges, money laundering, and tax evasion charges?

How did Hillary Clinton avoid charges of mishandling classified information, extortion, and general corruption?

Answer: THE DEMOCRATS PROTECT THEIR OWN AND EVERYBODY ELSE BE DAMNED!

Bottom line…

NOTICE THEY NEVER DEFINE "DISINFORMATION" OR "FALSE NARRATIVES"

OR VET THE "ARBITERS OF TRUTH"

Wrapping a turd in a bright, colorful package with a bow doesn't miraculously transform the turd into a Tootsie Roll.

If we allow the progressive communist democrats to muffle or cancel our message of truth, then our Constitution is dead, and the First Amendment no longer controlling law.

We must destroy the Democrats in 2022 and 2024, or we are so screwed.

ECONOMICS: IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD

ECONOMICS

There is no doubt that we are suffering "stagflation" as indicated by an inflation rate of approximately 8.5% and a decline in our Gross Domestic Product of -1.4%.

Compound this with further bad economic policies such as attacking energy production increasing government spending, especially on behalf of foreign sovereign nations, increasing domestic taxes, pushing tariffs which are domestic taxes, and allowing unions to hold our supply chains hostage at the U.S. ports.

Add the bubble growing in all asset classes driven by speculative perceptions and insane valuations based, not on profits, cash flow, or assets, but on the last round of investor funding.

This is a recessionary trend where we have too many dollars chasing too few goods and refuse to ramp up production to resolve the imbalance.

The Federal Reserve will be raising interest rates and the cost of money and debt services is going to be burdensome -- shifting cash allocation from growth to debt service.

It should also be noted that the statistics are fudged and what is reported now is subject to revision in the next six months.

We also are looking forward to Chinese supply chain disruptions, semiconductor chip shortages and continuing degradations in commercial real estate utilization and rentals as companies virtualize their workforce into remote workers.

Add a corrupt and incompetent Obama-led Biden Administration and we are screwed.

UNCLE JOE WANTS TO TELL YOU A TRUE BEDTIME STORY ABOUT HUNTER'S LAPTOP

MINISTRY_OF_TRUTHCreating Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” …

As an American citizen, I am deeply disturbed by the Department of Homeland Security’s creation of a secret group known as the Disinformation Governance Board, whose existence was revealed only in response to a question about what Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ department is doing to help minority communities combat election disinformation.

The Board is patently illegal under the First Amendment's speech protections, which begs the question, why is the federal government further inserting itself into election politics when it might be illegal?

18 U.S. Code § 595 - Interference by administrative employees of Federal, State, or Territorial Governments

Whoever, being a person employed in any administrative position by the United States, or by any department or agency thereof, or by the District of Columbia or any agency or instrumentality thereof, or by any State, Territory, or Possession of the United States, or any political subdivision, municipality, or agency thereof, or agency of such political subdivision or municipality (including any corporation owned or controlled by any State, Territory, or Possession of the United States or by any such political subdivision, municipality, or agency), in connection with any activity which is financed in whole or in part by loans or grants made by the United States, or any department or agency thereof, uses his official authority for the purpose of interfering with, or affecting, the nomination or the election of any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

And why the Disinformation Governance Board is being led by a rabid progressive communist democrat partisan hack, Nina Jankowicz, who has criticized First Amendment rights and dismissed troubling reports of Hunter Biden’s laptop as a “Trump campaign” ploy?

Alejandro Mayorkas should be in prison…

It is my personal opinion that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas should be investigated, impeached, and criminally prosecuted for willfully violating federal immigration laws and failing to uphold the constitutional sovereignty of the United States. It now appears he is preparing to interfere with a presidential election on behalf of the Obama/Biden Administration.

The last thing the Biden and Clinton crime families and the Obama Administration, under which crimes were committed, want is the truth. Hence, you find the future head of the DHS “Disinformation Governance Board,” Nina Jankowicz, creating a “narrative” about Hunter Biden’s laptop on October 22, 2020.

NINA-2020

Translation:

(1)  Don’t believe what you are reading because it could still be part of an “influence campaign.” The same might be said about every piece of literature coming from a political campaign or press release from the regime’s official press office.

(2)  “Context” is shorthand for “let me create a narrative” that explains what you see in the most favorable light to my cause or agenda.

(3)  “Fairy tale,”  a manipulative term suggesting that the information is false or a fable. Unfortunately, there is a verifiable chain of custody concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop, from Biden’s signature on the repair order to its transfer to FBI agents. Hunter Biden, the Biden family, and government officials have never challenged the ownership of the laptop and its data or the authenticity of the information – some of which have been independently corroborated by email recipients.

Who is Nina Jankowicz?

From her Amazon page, we learn…

Nina Jankowicz is an internationally-recognized expert on disinformation and democratization. Her debut book was How to Lose the Information War, is described as “a persuasive new book on disinformation as a geopolitical strategy.”

Since the start of the Trump era, the United States and the Western world has finally begun to wake up to the threat of online warfare and the attacks from Russia, who flood social media with disinformation, and circulate false and misleading information to fuel fake narratives and make the case for illegal warfare. The question no one seems to be able to answer is: what can the West do about it?

[OCS: The very same thing about could be said about the United States government under the Obama regime and its continuance under the Biden regime where it was not uncommon to “flood social media with disinformation and circulate false and misleading information to fuel fake narratives.”]

Central and Eastern European states, including Ukraine and Poland, however, have been aware of the threat for years. Nina Jankowicz has advised these governments on the front lines of the information war. The lessons she learnt from that fight, and from her attempts to get US congress to act, make for essential reading.

[OCS: I find it deeply troubling that almost all of the Obama players appear to have some involvement with Russia and the generally corrupt Ukraine. One might ask, was Jankowicz a registered lobbyist working on behalf of a foreign regime?]

How to Lose the Information War takes the reader on a journey through five Western governments' responses to Russian information warfare tactics - all of which have failed. She journeys into the campaigns the Russian operatives run, and shows how we can better understand the motivations behind these attacks and how to beat them. Above all, this book shows what is at stake: the future of civil discourse and democracy, and the value of truth itself.

And from her own page

Jankowicz has extensive media experience, with writing published in many major American newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Atlantic. She is a regular guest on major radio and television programs such as the PBS Newshour, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS and Amanpour, the BBC World Service, and NPR’s All Things Considered.

[OCS: Does anyone notice that all of the media outlets and individuals cited here openly support progressive communist democrat causes and individuals.]

Since 2017, Jankowicz has held fellowships at the Wilson Center, where she has been affiliated with the Kennan Institute and the Science and Technology Innovation Program. In 2016-17, she advised the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on disinformation and strategic communications under the auspices of a Fulbright-Clinton Public Policy Fellowship. Prior to her Fulbright grant, she managed democracy assistance programs to Russia and Belarus at the National Democratic Institute.

About her testimony before Congress…

Statement of NINA JANKOWICZ, Disinformation Fellow, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Science and Technology Innovation Program BEFORE THE UNITED STATES HOUSE PERMANENT SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE Concerning “ Misinformation, Conspiracy Theories, and ‘Infodemics’: Stopping the Spread Online” (October 15, 2020)

[OCS: Note the date of her testimony, one week before the tweet on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Note also, that her “testimony” was before the corrupt Intelligence Committee chaired by Representative Adam Schiff, the notorious progressive communist democrat liar-leaker that falsified evidence and was one of the greatest sources of disinformation related to Russia and Ukraine.] 

Chairman Schiff and distinguished Members of the Committee, it is an honor to testify before you today on the degradation of our information ecosystem and its exploitation by malign actors, both foreign and domestic. This is a threat that is dismantling our democracy. As Americans exercise their democratic rights during this election season, it is critical the nation is informed about how this phenomenon works and how it might blunt their voice and their vote.

not only have the U.S. Government and social media platforms all but abdicated their responsibility to stop the threat of foreign disinformation over the past four years, domestic disinformation now runs rampant. It is amplified in the media, online, in the halls of Congress, and from the White House itself. It does our adversaries’ work for them, leaving us vulnerable to continued manipulation and leaving our democracy imperiled.

Today I will outline several examples that exemplify the trends in the information space since 2016. They hold several important morals for policymakers. First, disinformation is a threat to democracy, no matter where it comes from or who it benefits, and until our government recognizes this, we cannot hope to counter it. Second, social media platforms’ structures and business models incentivize the spread of disinformation; until these business models change, we will continue to play a never-ending game of Whack-a-Troll. Third, these campaigns have stark implications for women and minorities’ participation in democracy. Finally, I will discuss what I view as the most urgent -- and undervalued -- policies necessary to improve the health of our online information ecosystem.

[OCS: (1) Disinformation may be a threat to democracy when it is not challenged in an open, vigorous debate and no individual or agency purports to hold a monopoly on the truth. In fact, depending on your perspective, there can be many persuasive truths that are equally as valid.

(2) This is a blatant call for centralized information monitoring and censorship which is a violation of our First Amendment freedoms when it is done by the government or independent third party actors acting voluntarily or involuntarily on behalf of the government. 

(3) Notice her injection of Marxist class identities when she specifically refers to women and minorities as if they are less intelligent, less discerning, and more easily fooled by disinformation?

(4) We cannot allow the elites, like Jankowicz to control information policies or the narrative.]

The White House Spin...

Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, April 28, 2022

Q And then on this new report that the Department of Homeland Security is setting up a Disinformation Governance Board to tackle misinformation ahead of the midterms: Secretary Mayorkas said that part of its intention was to tackle misinformation in Hispanic communities especially. Can you give us an idea of what this board is going to be doing, what their authority would look like?

MS. PSAKI: Sure, Jacqui. I really haven’t dug into this exactly. I mean, we, of course, support this effort, but let me see if I can get more specifics. We know that there has been a range of disinfo out there about a range of topics — I mean, including COVID, for example, and also elections and eligibility. But I will — I will check and see if there’s more specifics.

Q There’s been some criticism of the person who’s been chosen to oversee this board. She had previously called the Hunter Biden laptop a “Trump campaign product,” seeming to discredit its validity — or validity of reporting surrounding that.

How can you assuage concerns of people who are looking at this person who’s been appointed to this position and wondering if she’s going to be able to accurately judge misinformation now that a lot of that reporting has been proven to be factual in some ways?

MS. PSAKI: Well, I don’t have any comments on the laptop.

But what I can tell you is that it sounds like the objective of the board is to prevent disinformation and misinformation from traveling around the country in a range of communities. I’m not sure who opposes that effort, and I don’t know who this individual is, so I have no comments on it specifically.

Q Her name is Nina Jankowicz. She also just recently made some polarizing comments about the Twitter — Elon Musk’s Twitter purchase. It’s just getting some pushback from critics who are saying this person may not be the right choice for a board that is run by the Department of Homeland Security. Can you speak to that at all?

MS. PSAKI: I don’t have any information about this individual. I can check on more information about the board.

Bottom line…

The progressive communist democrats are in a panic, desperate to control the media and the narrative that could expose their criminality and treasonous actions. And as proof, I offer you Elon Musk and his bid to acquire Twitter and take it private. Why would anybody be opposed to Musk’s desire to open-source Twitter’s content selection and moderation algorithm and ensure free and open speech on a platform that purports to be founded on free speech and has become a de facto public platform?

Keep up the pressure and preserve your freedom; else, we are screwed.

THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS & ESTABLISHMENT GOP WING LOVE KEVIN McCARTHY

As a follow-up to my SCREW KEVIN McCARTHY post, I would like to note that it appears that the GOP seems to have forgiven House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for lying about his conversation with the GOP leadership team.

The lie came to light when a leaked recording of McCarthy’s conversation was presented by progressive communist democrat propagandist Rachel Maddow on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

Of course, all of the phony forgiveness appears to be coming from the Mitt Romney establishment wing of the GOP who wants Kevin “go along to get along” McCarthy to become Speaker of the House in the likelihood that the GOP will recapture the House majority.

As per the NBC headline below, there is no doubt that McCarthy is the “lesser of two evils” – since the progressive communist democrats regard conservative Jim Jordan as “the evil one.”

Mccarthy

Kevin McCarthy’s leaked recording shows that he’s the lesser of two evils in the GOP

Democrats delighting in the exposure of the House minority leader's lies, hoping they might derail his bid to become speaker, should be careful what they wish for.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was outed as a blatant liar when audio of him saying that then-President Donald Trump was responsible for the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and should be pushed out of politics emerged publicly last week.

Fallout over the McCarthy tape seemed to breathe new life into the most ardent pro-Trump corners of the GOP, which believe that McCarthy should be replaced as House party leader by the far more Trumpy Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan. Many of Trump’s staunchest supporters in the House had already had enough of McCarthy’s leadership well before this latest controversy.

Replying to a Fox News contributor [Tucker Carlson] calling McCarthy a RINO (a Republican in Name Only) after the audio was made public, embattled pro-MAGA Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz tweeted that Jordan was “the hardest working and most talented member of the Republican House Conference. And every member knows it.”  <Source>

Tucker Carlson called Kevin McCarthy a 'puppet of the Democratic Party' after leaked audio revealed the lawmaker had wondered if Twitter could censor some of his GOP colleagues

Carlson's statements came after The New York Times published a bombshell report detailing how McCarthy was concerned about GOP lawmakers like Rep. Matt Gaetz and their potential for inciting violence following the January 6 Capitol riot.

The Times also highlighted how McCarthy, in leaked audio recordings obtained by the outlet, had mulled the possibility of censoring GOP lawmakers.

"Can't they take their Twitter accounts away, too?" McCarthy was heard saying on a call, likely referring to how former President Donald Trump was permanently banned from Twitter after the riot.

During his show on Tuesday, Carlson criticized McCarthy for what the lawmaker said on the call.

"Kevin McCarthy of California told his close friend, Liz Cheney, that he hoped the social media companies would censor more conservative Republicans in the Congress," Carlson said, adding that Trump had been "silenced by those companies" during his presidency.

Carlson noted McCarthy had also expressed a desire to have "tech oligarchs" take more steps to "force disobedient lawmakers off the internet."

Commenting on McCarthy's suggestion to remove some parties from Twitter, Carlson said: "Those are the tape-recorded words of Congressman Kevin McCarthy, a man who in private turns out sounds like an MSNBC contributor." <Source>

As for Trump’s apparent forgiveness of McCarthy’s disloyalty – it’s meaningless…

Let us not forget that the mercurial former President is transactional and willing to forgive past slights if you kiss his ring and publicly proclaim loyalty. Of course, loyalty is a one-way street, with Trump ready to throw you under the bus if things turn South or you appear to be taking too much credit for your actions.

You are the sum of your closest friends…

Kevin_McCarthy-frank_luntz

Tucker Carlson Reveals House Leader Kevin McCarthy and Frank Luntz Live Together

Well, we can put this in the: ‘things that make other things make sense’ file.  Tonight on the Tucker Carlson show the Fox News host reveled that Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy and DeceptiCon pollster Frank Luntz live together.

That would explain why Kevin McCarthy puts Frank Luntz on the speaker podium at all the GOPs retreats and events; and why Luntz has such influence over the republican party apparatus….  UniParty gonna UniParty. <Source>

Bottom line…

The worst thing that could happen to the nation is that the Romney-McCain-Graham-Cheney establishment wing of the GOP would assume control over investigations and legislation needed to hold the progressive communist democrats and the GOP allies accountable for the disaster that has befallen America.

We are so screwed.

LIAR, LEAKER ADAM SCHIFF WORRIED ABOUT MUSK AND DISINFORMATION

It is beyond ironic that the unindicted criminal, liar, leaker Representative Adam Schiff (Douchebag-CA) would further call attention to his own misdeeds by attempting to disparage Elon Musk, a man who has done more for this nation than a legion of corrupt members of Congress.

Liar-leaker-schiff

Adam Schiff is the miscreant piece of Schiff that fabricated evidence in congressional hearings, lied about Russian collusion, and should be considered one of the largest purveyors of disinformation in the nation, including President Joe Biden.

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO-2Bottom line…

If Schiff is speaking, it is probably a lie.

TESLA: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK OR BUSINESS AS USUAL?

Many, myself included, have always thought that, by traditional measures, Tesla was over-valued and buoyed up by investor sentiment. However, it is hard to counter the financial engineering and promotional skills of Elon Musk.

Empire-1

The market embraces volatility-driven profits...

Few large money managers are willing to risk legal battles with rapacious securities attorneys by putting their woke ideology over their fiduciary duties to their shareholders/investors. Therefore, one might assume that the big funds are pouncing, counting on a hostile media reaction and possibly regulatory intervention to create the type of volatility that generates enormous profits.

In case you haven't noticed...

Elon Musk's takeover of Tesla is little more than a diversion from the real problems we face.

(1)  A corrupt, incompetent, and ideological-driven Biden Administration run by a cadre of Obama's acolytes.

(2)  A corrupt Congress worried about upcoming elections.

(3)  A Federal Reserve rate hike schedule featuring an artificially bloated balance sheet that affects the cost of money and increases the burden of index-linked debt service. A sure cause of inflation. 

(4)  The real possibility of moving into severe stagflation followed by depression with investors selling stock amidst concerns of a coming recession. 

(5)  Declines in big technology companies like Alphabet, Apple, Microsoft, and Twitter, whose increases in value have come to represent a sizeable portion of market indices. 

Bottom line…

Like everything else in the financial shell game, nothing much at Tesla has changed; the only thing that has changed is the media-driven perception driving stock prices. In all likelihood, creating temporary discomfort for Elon Musk; who knows, this too shall pass.

However, this is a golden opportunity to observe the ideological bent of your favorite media by watching how they handle the narrative.

We are so screwed.

SCREW KEVIN McCarthy

Luntz-mccarthy

I very much like the idea of replacing Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as the House Minority Leader in the United States House of Representatives before the GOP assumes a majority in the House.

I can only say that the GOP’s lack of forceful, effective leadership in the House reminds me of previous GOP leaders like crybaby/drunk John Boehner and the “go along to get along” Paul Ryan.

McCarthy lacks the cojones to stand up to Pelosi and her cadre of progressive communist democrats. 

I often wonder how much his longtime friend, onetime housemate, and sometime pollster/commentator, Frank Luntz, has influenced his behavior and messaging.

"Frank [Luntz] has been a friend of mine for more than 30 years. … I’ve rented a room from Frank for a couple of months, but don’t worry, I’m back to — going back to where I normally am, on my couch in my office. But, yes, we pay fair market rate." Other questions regarding the rental and the relationship have been raised. <Source>

My choice…

Personally, I want to see the tough-minded, tough-talking conservative Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) replace McCarthy.

Jim-jordan

And it has nothing to do with McCarthy lying about his support of Trump before the recent release of a secretly recorded audio where he told fellow lawmakers he planned to urge Trump to resign after the Capitol riot.

In the audio, captured on January 10, 2021, Rep. Liz Cheney asks McCarthy if Trump should resign, to which McCarthy replies: "My gut tells me no. I'm seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight. From what I know of him, I mean you guys know him, too, do you think he'd ever back away?"

He says an impeachment resolution would pass in the House and "there's a chance it will pass the Senate even when he's gone." Then McCarthy says he'll tell Trump that "it would be my recommendation you should resign."

It’s just that I am tired of tough-talking GOP representatives like Darrel Issa (R-CA) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who are loud, articulate, but grossly ineffective in holding the progressive communist democrats accountable for their often criminal or unconstitutional actions.

Bottom line…

We need a change NOW!

We are so screwed if we continue with the same GOP leadership infrastructure. And this includes Senator Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) niece Ronna Romney McDaniel serving as chair of the Republican National Committee.

GOP'S GEORGIA SECRETARY OF STATE RAFFENSPERGER IS SUSPECT AND NEEDS TO BE MONITORED IN 2022

There is little or no doubt in mind that Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, has been corrupted, and his actions in handling the deeply flawed 2020 election are suspect.

RAFFENSPERGER-ROOTEN-GEORGIA-PEACH

It’s getting worse…

It appears that Raffensperger has engaged Frisco, Texas-based system integrator MTX Group to configure San Francisco, California-based Salesforce’s cloud CRM system to manage Georgia’s Voter Rolls.

Brad Raffensperger Continues to Secure the Vote; Announces Partnership with Salesforce and MTX to Modernize Georgia’s Voter Registration System

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is continuing to secure Georgia’s elections by launching a new, secure, voter registration system for the Peach State. Raffensperger is partnering with Salesforce to build the new system on the highest security servers with faster processing power and the most up-to-date secure technology. MTX Group Inc. (MTX) is the implementation partner for the new voter registration system.

Raffensperger will be working with Salesforce and implementation partner MTX Group to replace Georgia’s current voter registration system, ElectioNet. The changes are entirely on the administrative side. Georgia voters will not see any difference in their voting experience.

The new system, called the Georgia Registered Voter Information System (GRVIS), will sit on secure, Salesforce servers using cloud technology services authorized by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) at the highest level of security. FedRAMP was introduced in 2011 and ensures standards of security for the use of cloud services across the federal government. FedRAMP ensures that private sector partners are using top-tier secure technology for any cloud storage services provided to the federal government.

[OCS: This is misleading. Security standards do not ensure compliance and security audits of corporations are usually performed by consultancies, rely on management representations, and are paid for by the company being audited. They are rarely released to the public or inspected by the SEC. Spend time with the Government Accounting Office audit reports and you will find that most government systems have significant “control” or “operational” deficiencies. ] 

Salesforce has a long track record of working with high-level, secure government partners such as the Department of Defense. The security used for the cloud for Georgia’s new voter registration system will be at the same level as Salesforce’s most sensitive government clients.

[OCS: There is no indication that either MTX or Salesforce has ever managed a state’s voter rolls.]

MTX Group, a premier global technology consulting firm, is the implementation partner for the new voter registration system and is developing the user interface that Georgia’s elections officials will use as part of the new system. MTX’s work sits on top of the Salesforce system and will provide an agile and adaptable experience for county election officials. State, county, and local government users will be able to work in the system with greater confidence and reliability. <Source>

Usually, outsourcing to competent contractors and vendors would be a good thing. However, it appears that there are several concerns.

(1)  Raffensperger is acting unilaterally, signing a no-bid contract to outsource Georgia’s voter information processing and storage. No hearings or counter-proposals.

(2)  MTX Group is essentially a small company headed by an entrepreneur, founder, and CEO, Dastigir “Das” Nobel, who hopes to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, and whose company is no stranger to controversy. The company appears to be politically connected and employs the well-connected law firm Greenberg Traurig for lobbying activity.

(3)  There is little doubt that the management of Salesforce is deeply committed to corrupt progressive globalist causes. The company’s founder, Marc Benioff, sits on the Board of Trustees of the Soros-supported World Economic Forum

Bottom line…

Look for more controversy in Georgia’s elections as you need to manipulate the voter roll’s to create synthetic votes and rig an election.

HOW COOL IS THIS: MUSK BUYS TWITTER, PROMISES TO REMOVE BOTS AND RESTORE FREE SPEECH?

Musk-twitter

The first step in restoring free speech was an entrepreneur with big cojones and $44 BILLION…

TWITTER TO GO PRIVATE, RESTORE FREE SPEECH

Twitter announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion. Upon completion of the transaction, Twitter will become a privately held company.

Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction. The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter's closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter.

Bret Taylor, Twitter's Independent Board Chair, said, "The Twitter Board conducted a thoughtful and comprehensive process to assess Elon's proposal with a deliberate focus on value, certainty, and financing. The proposed transaction will deliver a substantial cash premium, and we believe it is the best path forward for Twitter's stockholders."

Parag Agrawal, Twitter's CEO, said, "Twitter has a purpose and relevance that impacts the entire world. Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important."

"Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," said Mr. Musk. "I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it." <Full Press Release>

The progressive communist democrats are in full panic mode…

Suppose Twitter restores free speech before the 2022 elections? In that case, censored information and canceled dissidents could shock the progressive Twitterverse with formerly hidden information that demonstrates and documents the dastardly actions of the Democrat Party in weaponizing government agencies, ignoring treasonous activities on behalf of a foreign power, subverting an election, obstructing justices, and hiding the deadly truth about the global pandemic and the use of so-called vaccines.

Bottom line…

Perhaps Twitter needs a new tagline… “LIBERAL SNOWFLAKES – CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH?”

There is a glimmer of hope, and hopefully, they, not we, are screwed.
