CLINTONS REACH THE HEIGHTS OF HUBRIS

Hillary-lying

In an ironic and classic display of projection, accusing the opposition of your own behavior, the Clintons make an outrageous statement.

The Clintons claim America is on the edge of losing democracy: Hillary says ‘everything that everybody else cares about’ could ‘go out the window’ and Bill tells James Corden he fears for the ‘structure of government’

  • Bill and Hillary Clinton suggested American democracy is teetering on the edge
  • The pair sat for separate interviews and painted bleak pictures of the future
  • Bill told James Corden that there is a ‘fair chance’ United States could ‘completely lose our constitutional democracy’
  • Hillary then told the Financial Times that the U.S. is on the ‘precipice of losing our democracy’
  • Follows the January 6 committee hearings and polls suggesting voters think American democracy may ‘cease’ to exist

Bill and Hillary Clinton both suggested that American democracy is teetering on the edge of existence in a pair of separate interviews this week.

The pair both said the government as we know it is at risk after the third January 6 committee hearing and a new poll saying a majority of both Democrats and Republicans believe America will ‘cease to exist’ as a democracy. 

[OCS: There is little or no doubt in anyone’s mind that the illegitimate, one-sided Jan 6 Committee has but four goals: One, to distract the American public from the disastrous outcome of the Obama/Biden domestic and foreign policy failures; two, advance panic using fear porn that suggests the Republicans are out to subvert democracy; three, set the stage for recommending the elimination of the Electoral College, and four, disparage Trump to keep him off the 2024 ballot or preemptively damage his role as a political influencer.]

Former president Bill told CBS’s The Late Late Show host James Corden on Wednesday night that he fears the United States could ‘completely lose our constitutional democracy.’

Hillary painted a similarly bleak picture in an interview with the Financial Times in an interview published less than 48 hours later on Friday.

Reporter Edward Luce suggested to her that the Democrats’ seem to be going out of their way to lose elections by elevating activist causes, notably the transgender debate, which are relevant only to a small minority’.

‘We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window.’ 

‘Look, the most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority. <Source>

[OCS: Saying the quiet part out loud. Vote Democrat or face destruction – unmindful that America is already experiencing devastation under the progressive communist democrats.]

No two individuals, other than former President Barack Obama, have brought so much corruption and communism to America.

To continue to give these two miscreants and unindicted felons any credibility is to join the ranks of the insane.

We are well and thoroughly screwed.

HOORAY! ELON MUSK PUSHES BACK AGAINST RADICAL LEFTIST TWITS AT SPACEX

Musk-1

I am not a special pleader for mega-entrepreneur Elon Musk and I am appalled that a cadre of radical progressive employees would attack Musk for his personal activities outside the scope of SpaceX. With some degree of pleasure, I note that the officious leftist twerps attacking Musk have been separated from the company.

SpaceX fires at least five for letter criticizing Elon Musk

Private rocket company SpaceX fired at least five employees after it found they had drafted and circulated a letter criticizing founder Elon Musk and urging executives to make the firm's culture more inclusive, two people familiar with the matter said.

SpaceX did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

The New York Times reported on Thursday that SpaceX had fired employees associated with the letter, citing three employees with knowledge of the situation. It had not detailed the number of employees who had been dismissed.

SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell sent an email saying the company had investigated and "terminated a number of employees involved" with the letter, the New York Times said.

The newspaper said Shotwell's email said employees involved with circulating the letter had been fired for making other staff feel "uncomfortable, intimidated and bullied, and/or angry because the letter pressured them to sign onto something that did not reflect their views". <Source>

The letter…

An open letter to the Executives of SpaceX,

In light of recent allegations against our CEO and his public disparagement of the situation, we would like to deliver feedback on how these events affect our company’s reputation, and through it, our mission. Employees across the spectra of gender, ethnicity, seniority, and technical roles have collaborated on this letter. We feel it is imperative to maintain honest and open dialogue with each other to effectively reach our company’s primary goals together: making SpaceX a great place to work for all, and making humans a multiplanetary species.

[OCS: It appears that this letter was politically motivated by those who embrace radical far-left positions and are acting in sympathy with those opposing Musk’s attempt to eliminate censorship and return free speech to the Twitter platform.]

As SpaceX employees we are expected to challenge established processes, rapidly innovate to solve complex problems as a team, and use failures as learning opportunities. Commitment to these ideals is fundamental to our identity and is core to how we have redefined our industry. But for all our technical achievements, SpaceX fails to apply these principles to the promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion with equal priority across the company, resulting in a workplace culture that remains firmly rooted in the status quo.

[OCS: As employees, you are entitled to your opinion and the right to speak out. However, as employees of  a private company, your comments and writings are not constitutionally protected and comments which defame, denigrate, disparage, or bring undue attention to the company subject you to internal disciplinary actions, including the risk of termination.] 

Individuals and groups of employees at SpaceX have spent significant effort beyond their technical scope to make the company a more inclusive space via conference recruiting, open forums, feedback to leadership, outreach, and more. However, we feel an unequal burden to carry this effort as the company has not applied appropriate urgency and resources to the problem in a manner consistent with our approach to critical path technical projects. To be clear: recent events are not isolated incidents; they are emblematic of a wider culture that underserves many of the people who enable SpaceX’s extraordinary accomplishments. As industry leaders, we bear unique responsibility to address this.

Elon’s behavior in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us, particularly in recent weeks. As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX—every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company. It is critical to make clear to our teams and to our potential talent pool that his messaging does not reflect our work, our mission, or our values.

[OCS: What your CEO does or says is none of your concern. There is no concrete evidence that Musk’s behavior or pronouncements have impacted company financing or operations other than annoying a woke cadre of overly-sensitive, politically-motivated snowflakes that need to have their security clearances re-examined for links to potentially hostile threats.]

SpaceX’s current systems and culture do not live up to its stated values, as many employees continue to experience unequal enforcement of our oft-repeated “No Asshole” and “Zero Tolerance” policies. This must change. As a starting point, we are putting forth the following categories of action items, the specifics of which we would like to discuss in person with the executive team within a month:

[OCS: I know of no large company that lives up to its stated values on all levels and encompassing all employees. And, if you were to eliminate driven quirky leadership, there would be few billion-dollar unicorns that employ thounsands of employees.]

Publicly address and condemn Elon’s harmful Twitter behavior. SpaceX must swiftly and explicitly separate itself from Elon’s personal brand.

[OCS: If you are embarrassed or stressed by your CEO’s behavior, which is really none of your concern, or the ethics of your employer – quit! Keep your comments private or suffer the consequences.]

Hold all leadership equally accountable to making SpaceX a great place to work for everyone. Apply a critical eye to issues that prevent employees from fully performing their jobs and meeting their potential, pursuing specific and enduring actions that are well resourced, transparent, and treated with the same rigor and urgency as establishing flight rationale after a hardware anomaly.

[OCS: Companies are not governed by a mobocracy. Few company policies are likely to satisfy all employees all of the time.]

Define and uniformly respond to all forms of unacceptable behavior. Clearly define what exactly is intended by SpaceX’s “no-asshole” and “zero tolerance” policies and enforce them consistently. SpaceX must establish safe avenues for reporting and uphold clear repercussions for all unacceptable behavior, whether from the CEO or an employee starting their first day.

[OCS: And who designed a few outspoken employees to be the morality police.]

We care deeply about SpaceX’s mission to make humanity multiplanetary. But more importantly, we care about each other. The collaboration we need to make life multiplanetary is incompatible with a culture that treats employees as consumable resources. Our unique position requires us to consider how our actions today will shape the experiences of individuals beyond our planet. Is the culture we are fostering now the one which we aim to bring to Mars and beyond?

We have made strides in that direction, but there is so much more to accomplish.

Screw stakeholder capitalism which is little more than soft socialism …

Pressures facing corporations

PLAYERS

Let us consider what corporations owe to the community…

(1)  Above all, corporations have a fiduciary duty to their shareholders to produce an acceptable return on their invested funds. Notice that I said shareholders – not stakeholders who may not contribute to the company's profitability or may not wish the company well.

(2)  Corporations have a duty to produce goods and services that can be profitably merchandised. Not to support controversial issues that introduce unneeded and unacceptable risk into company operations or alienate a large segment of the public.

(3)  Corporations owe their employees a safe working environment that minimizes adverse outcomes and pays employees wages consistent with market norms. Employees are free to accept work and negotiate for better wages or different working conditions -- or quit!

(4)  Corporations have a duty to be good members of the community by following the rule of law, respecting everyone, and paying taxes..

(5)  To the extent a corporation voluntarily engages in community activities, it has a duty to do so without negative consequences to the company or its shareholders. <Source>

Bottom line…

I recognize and respect what Elon Musk has accomplished and care not a whit for what he does or says in his private life. 

I am tired of hearing whiney little snowflakes attempt to exert control over enterprises they don’t own are who are but minor cogs in a much larger apparatus. Therefore I am heartened to see that mega-entrepreneur Elon Musk has allegedly fired the employees who attempted to politicize SpaceX and censure its CEO for exercising his free speech rights. 

We are so screwed.

SCHIFFING ON LAW-ABIDING GUN OWNERS

What is it about these progressive communist democrats who favor criminals over victims and refuse to prosecute gun-related crimes while trying to disarm law-abiding citizens?

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO-2

Stephen,

Every industry in this country is subject to some form of legal liability except for onethe gun industry. And it’s time that survivors of gun violence and the families of victims get their day in court, when gun industry negligence has contributed to the tragedy.

[OCS: This is a bald-faced lie from a reviled liar/leaker who engages in perjury and the manipulation of evidence. Using the same logic, manufacturers of knives, cars, baseball bats, etc.]

The gun industry’s legal liability shield, passed in a 2005 federal law at the NRA’s behest, silences the voices of gun violence victims — even when gun makers and sellers act negligently.

[OCS: What the law does -- The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (15 USC §§ 7901–7903) is a United States law that protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. Both arms manufacturers and dealers can still be held liable for damages resulting from defective products, breach of contract, criminal misconduct, and other actions for which they are directly responsible. They may also be held liable for negligent entrustment when they have reason to know a gun is intended for use in a crime.]

The NRA called the bill their #1 legislative priority at the time. And no wonder.

Look, I don’t think that people should be able to buy assault weapons, period, and I favor banning them. And if the makers and sellers of these weapons are marketing them to kids, or negligent in how they sell them, and the purchasers go on to commit the kind of attacks we saw two 18-year-olds unleash in Buffalo and Uvalde last month, I don’t want the gun industry getting a pass. They should be held to the same standard of care as every other industry. But until we remove the gun industry’s legal liability shield, the survivors and families of victims can’t do a thing in court.

[OCS: There is no such thing as an “assault weapon” – a scary name used to demonize all semi-automatic rifles.  Fully-automatic military-grade weapons are strictly controlled, and possession is a crime without a federal license. Knowingly selling a weapon to an ineligible underage person, felon, or mentally defective person is already a crime and actionable in court.] 

However, there is one way we can change that:

I’ve taken the fight to the gun lobby by introducing the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act so that victims and their families would have the right to hold gun manufacturers and sellers accountable just like every other American industry — and force them to make their products safer and use best practices when they sell them. President Biden has called this legislation his very top priority when it comes to gun safety.

[OCS: This is nonsensical and a political stunt to disarm law-abiding individuals by decreasing the supply of weapons from manufacturers scared of legal liabilities that could bankrupt their companies. Even an unsuccessful lawsuit is expensive to defend – multiplied by numerous frivolous lawsuits from bad political actors.]

“Most people don’t realize: The only industry in America, billion-dollar industry, that can’t be sued, exempt from being sued, are gun manufacturers…If I get one thing on my list, Lord came down and said, ‘Joe, you get one of these,’ give me that one.” — President Joe Biden.

[OCS: Nice to see a coherent thought from some staffer delivered by an incoherent puppet of the Obama regime. But, like most of what Joe Biden says, it’s based on a lie.]

When you peel back the layers, there is a reason that stopping my bill is also the top priority for gun makers and dealers:

For the gun industry and the Republican senators whose campaigns they sponsor, it’s about money. Dollars and cents. Profits. The bottom line. That’s it. That’s all. Not the safety of our communities or their products. Not kids’ lives. Nothing else matters.

[No! You putz. It’s about freedom, the Constitution, the Second Amendment, and protection against government tyranny.]

So I’m asking for your help to change that, so victims and their families can sue the gun industry for the carnage they are unleashing on innocent folks across our country when they act negligently — the only country that experiences this epidemic of gun violence.

[OCS:  How about a law that limits attorney’s fees in multi-million dollar cases?]

Add your name as a citizen co-sponsor of my Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act today and together, let’s finally hold the gun industry accountable to the victims and families when they act negligently towards the public safety.

[OCS: I would rather be a citizen co-sponsor of a law that held criminals responsible for crime and implemented a three-strikes rule for gun-wielding gang members and criminals.]

ADD YOUR NAME

Thanks for raising your voice on such an important issue.

— Adam

Should a gun manufacturer be held responsible for the actions of the piece of shit that shot two police officers while out on parole because a progressive communist democrat District Attorney, George Gascon, gave him a pass on a gun-related felony charge?

Gg-1

We are so screwed when they demand gun control and ignore crime control.

WILL YOU AND OUR COUNTRY MAKE IT TO 2024?

Biden-stock

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

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

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

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

Bottom line...

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

We are so screwed.

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

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

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

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

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

Ask what's next?

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

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

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

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

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

Where is the 25th Amendment?

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

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

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

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

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

Bottom line...

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

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

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

We are so screwed.

IS "OFFICIAL" DISINFORMATION, DISINFORMATION?

Coronavirus-warning

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • The unvaccinated will be denied employment.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bottom line…

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

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

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

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

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

REAGAN-CHENEY

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

REAGAN-FOUNDATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bottom line...

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

We are so screwed.

TODAY'S RANT

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

TODAYS-RANT

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

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

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

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

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

BS-1

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

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

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

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

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

Ukraine’s wheat is going nowhere soon…

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

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

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

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

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

LGBTQ at war…

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

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

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

How corrupt and morally bankrupt are our politicians?

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

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

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

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

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

How far have we fallen…

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

Pm-1

Anything to grab attention…

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

Discriminatory and stigmatizing’: Scientists push to rename monkeypox viruses

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

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

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

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

White Media And Its Racist Coverage Of Monkeypox

It’s a textbook case in blatant racism

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

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

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

Bottom line…

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

We are so screwed.

THE GOP'S BIGGEST OPPONENT IS NOT THE DEMOCRATS

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

Your Choice!

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

vs.

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

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

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

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

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

The real GOP opponent…

Rvr

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

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

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

Stephen,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

— Adam Schiff

Bottom line...

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

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

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

Vote competency and patriotism over ideology and color.

We are so screwed.

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