THE COURT ENDS ON A RIGHTEOUS NOTE

COURT-FIRE

Doing the right thing…

In a stunning display of allegiance to the United States Constitution, the Supreme Court concluded its term by righting several procedural wrongs and returning a measure of sanity to its deliberations. Also highlighted were the three liberal justices, voting as a block, demonstrating the type of muddled tortured thinking required to trash the Constitution to support their partisan agenda. Notably, the Court experienced the leak of a draft opinion, which spread anger throughout liberal-land and caused one U.S. Senator, Chuck Schumer, to rail openly on the steps of the Court, threatening two sitting Justices by name. A clear violation of the law as he attempted to interfere with an ongoing judicial process and intimidate Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

"I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price.  You won't know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions."

The progressive mainstream media is angry with the Court and continues to lie about the Court’s three most prominent decisions, the Dobbs decision returning the issue of abortion to the States where it rightfully belongs according to the Constitution’s Tenth Amendment, the Bruen Decision, which clarified the historical or legal understanding of the Second Amendment, and the Biden v. Texas decision, a matter dealing with administrative law and immigration that reaffirmed the President’s discretionary powers by distinguishing between obligation and discretion.

The most crucial Court decision is not so much about impeding the administration’s climate change agenda as it demands that a lazy Congress do its constitutional duty…

However, as consequential and decisive as these decisions may seem, they were eclipsed by the West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency decision, which reaffirmed the separation of powers between the Legislative and the Executive branches by curbing unilateral rule-making by Executive branch agencies without the specific direction of the Legislative branch of the federal government.

Most progressive communist democrats are going crazy after the Supreme Court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency did not have the right to impose emissions standards on the nation unilaterally.

“Capping carbon dioxide emissions at a level that will force a nationwide transition away from the use of coal to generate electricity may be a sensible “solution to the crisis of the day.” New York v. United States, 505 U. S. 144, 187 (1992). But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme in Section 111(d). A decision of such magnitude and conse­quence rests with Congress itself, or an agency acting pur­suant to a clear delegation from that representative body.”

Why the progressive communist democrats are going crazy.

The decision demands that Congress reassert its Article II powers as the sole law-making legislative body. And that if they delegate rule-making authority to an Article I Executive Branch agency, they do it with clear intent and guidance, which spells out the limits of the agency’s power. Thus, the individual legislators are forced to vote on politically untenable issues that are likely to create controversy and consequences for those who put their ideology over the needs of the nation. 

The legislators and their staffs now have to do their homework, craft legislation beyond vague outlines, and read the bills before signing them into law lest they suffer the consequences of their actions.

And most importantly, legislators can no longer shift power to the permanent bureaucracy that resides in the so-called deep state, which is immune to periodic elections when the opposition takes control. One reason that former President Obama pushed many of his nominees into becoming bureaucrats under civil service rules and regulations.

Bottom line...

It’s about time that politicians had to work for a living, serving their constituents, or at least being accountable for their lack of diligence and poor outcomes.

It seems the progressive communist democrats were all about letting the bureaucrats make the tough choices without having to do any of the heavy lifting. Likewise, members of the GOP thought this was a swell idea as they could complain about the issue without having to craft their own legislation.

Perhaps this will also bring about the reform of Congressional rules, which exempt Congress from the consequences of its own legislation and empowers unaccountable corruption such as insider trading and relentless attacks on American citizens who participate in political dissent and processes that challenge sitting legislators?

We are so screwed.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SOLD OUT NATION OUR TO OUR ENEMIES

Epa-dsaFrom my viewpoint, the United States is under assault…

The progressive communist democrats have infiltrated our government, our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and especially those executive branch agencies that control our critical infrastructure.

Proof?

(1)  Our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been politicized, and their leadership can no longer be trusted to protect our nation from its enemies, both foreign and domestic. At the same time, they waste time interfering in internal affairs, notably pursuing conservatives and followers of Donald Trump.

(2)  Likewise, our Congress members have covert and overt familial business relationships with Communist China and turn a blind eye to infrastructure incursions, including cyber-attacks and the theft of our intellectual property. Many lawmakers leave office and then openly advocate for foreign interests-- selling out Americans in the process. 

(3)  But most insidious is the communist infiltration into the environmental movement, which openly colludes with a compromised Environmental Protection Agency that is trying to destroy our nation’s economy and industrial base.

(4)  Fracking (hydraulic fracturing) is the technology that allows recovering gas and oil from shale rock – and which allowed the United States to become energy independent and a net exporter of oil, gas, and petrochemicals. 

Russian-funded environmental group gave millions to anti-fracking groups

U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Randy Weber (R-Texas) sent a letter to U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to request that the Department investigate allegations that Russian state sponsored entities interfered in the U.S. energy market by funneling Russian funds to radical environmental groups opposed to all fossil fuels.

Chairman Smith: “If you connect the dots, it is clear that Russia is funding U.S. environmental groups in an effort to suppress our domestic oil and gas industry, specifically hydraulic fracking.  They have established an elaborate scheme that funnels money through shell companies in Bermuda.  This scheme may violate federal law and certainly distorts the U.S. energy market.  The American people deserve to know the truth and I am confident Secretary Mnuchin will investigate the allegations.”

According to publicly available reports, the Russian government and complicit parties funneled money originating from Russia through Bermuda-based shell companies to environmental groups in the United States with the aim of disrupting the U.S. energy industry and influencing public opinion of the oil and gas industry. This scheme potentially violates federal statutes pertaining to agents of foreign governments or those lobbying on behalf of domestic and foreign interests.  The U.S. Treasury Department is well positioned to track the international money flowing into the U.S.

“U.S. presidential candidates, European officials, and the U.S. intelligence community have all publicly noted that Russia and its government corporations are funding a covert anti-fracking campaign to suppress the widespread adoption of fracking in Europe and the U.S.—all in an effort to safeguard the influence of the Russian oil and gas sector,” the letter states.

According to the reports, entities connected to the Russian government are using a shell company registered in Bermuda, Klein Ltd. (Klein), to funnel tens of millions of dollars to a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) private foundation, the Sea Change Foundation (Sea Change). This money appears to move in the form of anonymous donations. Sea Change then passes the money originating in Russia to various U.S. 501(c)(3) organizations such as the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, and others. These funds are dispersed as grants that will be used to execute a political agenda driven by Russian entities. The purpose of this circuitous exchange of foreign funds is to shield the source of the money. <Source>

In many cases, the environmentalists collude with the agencies to bypass legislation to implement rules through a sue-and-settle scheme.

Sue and Settle Litigation Undermines True Conservation

Are American conservationists being served by the Biden administration? By all indications, they aren’t.

From suspending the prescribed burn program to undermining domestic energy production, this White House masquerades their preservationist environmental agenda as true conservation.

Recently, the Department of Interior nixed their litigation website highlighting earnings environmental groups receive from settlement agreements in a practice known as “sue and settle.”

Biden Admin Gives License to ‘Sue and Settle’

On June 17, 2022, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland issued a Secretarial Order (Secretary’s Order 3408) revoking an Trump-era order (Secretary’s Order 3368) spotlighting consent decrees and legal settlements claiming it was redundant and inefficient.

“The previous Order added unnecessary obstacles to the Department’s ability to enter into rational and fair settlements, imposed requirements and timelines inconsistent with those set by courts, and added redundant reporting obligations,” an Interior Department statement read. “The previous Order provided no tangible benefits to the public while interfering with the Department’s ability to make decisions about litigation that are in the best interests of the federal government and taxpayers.”

This announcement interestingly coincides with the Center for Biological Diversity vs USFWS lawsuit to undo the 2020 opening of 2.2 million national wildlife refuges to new fishing and hunting opportunities because lead ammunition and tackle use is allowed. USFWS entered into settlement talks with the radical environmental organization. As a result of apparent talks, the DOI just proposed a rule, 2022-2023 Station-Specific Hunting and Sport Fishing Regulations, to phase out lead use at several national wildlife refuges by 2026.

This isn’t the first time the Biden administration gave a nod to “sue and settle” practices.

“Sue and settle became a tool for environmental activists to set favorable regulation through litigation. The process circumvented public transparency and participation requirements so the outcomes were more extreme,” Gunasekara remarked to Townhall.com in an email. “Instead of the agency setting standards to improve public health and the environment consistent with balanced principles set forth by Congress, the system was manipulated to achieve the ends of extreme groups working to put certain American industries -- coal, oil, natural gas --  out of business.” 

She added, “I'm disappointed but not surprised the Biden Administration has reinstated “sue and settle” within EPA. Biden appointees will shovel taxpayer dollars to their political allies while setting unworkable standards as part of their ongoing war against fossil fuels.”  <Source>

The EPA is attempting to cripple gas and oil production in one of the most productive areas – much like using water rights to cripple California’s agriculture industry.

Biden’s Raid on the Permian Basin

A new ozone decision would force less drilling in America’s most productive shale reserve.

President Biden and his aides keep saying they’re doing everything they can to produce more oil and gas in the U.S. Apparently they think Americans aren’t paying attention, because his Administration keeps making rule after rule to throttle production.

The latest comes from the Environmental Protection Agency, which has announced it may soon deem parts of the Permian Basin in Texas and New Mexico in “non-attainment” with its ozone standards. Green groups last spring petitioned the EPA to do this to effectively force curbs on shale fracking. The Permian is currently the most productive, and cost-effective, oil shale reserve in the U.S. It accounts for 43% of U.S. oil production.

“The EPA’s process could interfere in the production of oil in Texas which could lead to skyrocketing prices at the pump by reducing production, increase the cost of that production, or do both,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote Mr. Biden this week. “Your administration’s announced action is completely discretionary. Thus, you have the power to stop it.”

Since EPA doesn’t have the legal authority to ban fracking, it’s now trying to do so through this regulatory back door. We warned about this last year. Climate activists also want EPA to tighten ozone standards to indirectly regulate CO2 from fossil fuels. Joe Goffman, a champion of this idea, is leading EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation on an acting basis, and he’s in charge of ozone rules.

Mr. Goffman midwifed the Obama Clean Power Plan that had sought to conscript states into a force-fed green energy grid transition until the courts killed it. A 2014 article from E&E News described Mr. Goffman as the “U.S. EPA’s law whisperer. His specialty is teaching an old law to do new tricks.” How many more tricks does he have up his sleeve to keep gas prices high? <Source>

All is not lost...

Supreme Court Delivers a Great Win Curtailing the Power of Government in EPA Case

The Supreme Court sharply curtailed the power of the EPA to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change. In a 6-3 ruling written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court sided with conservative states and fossil-fuel companies in adopting a narrow reading of the Clean Air Act.

Congress did not grant EPA…the authority to devise emissions caps based on the generation shifting approach the Agency took in the Clean Power Plan,” the majority wrote.
The ruling was spurred by an appeal to a decision last year that struck down a Trump-era power plant rule.

In appealing that decision, West Virginia asked the court to consider whether the EPA has the authority to try to push the entire system away from coal and reshape the country’s electric grid.

Justice Kagan in her dissent acted as though it was the Court’s responsibility to address climate change, rather than interpret the law and the Constitution. <Source>

Bottom line…

I believe in conservation, pollution control, and the good stewardship of our natural resources. I also believe in keeping our eyes open and developing situational awareness.

There is no doubt in my mind that the EPA has been corrupted by the communist-infiltrated environmental agencies and unregistered foreign agents advocating on behalf of foreign energy enterprises, both state-owned and privately owned by oligarchs.

Are we so freaking blind as to not see the corrupt relationship between the Biden’s and energy producers and marketers in Russia, China, and Ukraine? President Biden has already been recorded as confessing to selling his office and bribing the Ukraine government on behalf of his son Hunter.

Wake up, America, before we are screwed beyond the point of no return.

P.S. About that EPA logo – that’s the red rose of the Democrat Socialists of America, one of the champions of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Green New Deal – the plan to destroy America’s economy through its energy sector.

OCS: AM I OUT OF MY MIND?

Amerikid-head

I received an email in response to one of my blog posts, challenging my sanity and asking, “if I was out of my ever-loving mind?”

What followed was a classic diatribe filled with bad words and slurs of various kinds. The individual did not refute anything I posted and suggested I was a right-wing conspiracy nut. Pretty easy to ignore as just another unhinged loon. Unfortunately, to the writer’s horror, I need some new conspiracy theories as most of the old ones have come true – many surpassing my worst-case scenario and threatening our democratic republic.

Anyway, I thought I would share a little of my world view…

I have been asked several times why I use the term “progressive communist democrats.”

First and foremost, I do not distinguish between the various labels and forms of Marxism, socialism, and communism since I believe that communism is the philosophical ideology and everything else is an implementation of the unattainable communist ideal.

I believe that the Democrat Party has been infiltrated by communists, both foreign and domestic, who wish to destroy our exceptional nation from within and that its leadership is driven by professionally-trained radicalized agitators (i.e., community organizers).

A prime example is former President Barack Obama who was raised by communists, was influenced and mentored by communists, and associated with communists (and terrorists) throughout his life. And that his rise from community organizer to the presidency was coordinated and orchestrated by communists.

Progressivism is based on the Marxist concept that conflict leads to progress and the process of progressivism consists of three steps.

1.  Identify the characteristics of the existing system.
2.  Create a system with opposing characteristics.
3.  Use social movements and propaganda to incite conflict between identity groups of the existing systems with the goal of destroying the existing system in order to progress to the desired system.

What are these characteristics?

Basically, they are the beliefs and behaviors based on moral and ethical foundations, legal systems, social mores, and cultural practices,

Who are members of these identity groups?

Basically, it's you and me, identified by: class, race, national origin, sex, gender, religion, parent-child, rich-poor, etc. And "intersectionality" simply means individuals can simultaneously belong to one or more identity groups.

Viewed within this context, there is no doubt in my mind that the progressive communist democrats represent a clear and present danger to our beloved nation, the rule of law, and the protection of our inalienable rights.

Why a socialist-influenced economic system is doomed to failure.

The fundamental issues with using centrally-administered socialist economic policies are: one, you can affect but not control either supply or demand; two, you cannot correctly calculate pricing to drive the system; three, you do not have the capacity to monitor and react to a multiplicity of local conditions.

Moreover, you cannot rely on government “experts,” many of whom are incompetent and have risen through the ranks based on seniority or connections or who are the corrupt product of “regulatory capture” and the revolving door between the regulators and the regulated.

Then there is the bureaucratic inertia that keeps government projects with their bureaucracies and “clients” in place long after their usefulness -- devolving into programmatic budget increases to keep the bureaucratic abomination afloat.

Things have changed...

Through decades of indoctrination by educational institutions and the media, our culture has devolved from rugged individualism to collective laziness where people are content to rely on others and the government to ensure that today is much the same as yesterday and tomorrow will be much the same as today. A "to go along to get along" society with few challanging the system and attempting reform.

Our resilience has been severely downgraded and now is approaching a form of adult infantilism.

Have you ever wondered why wealthy white progressive elites are behind most authoritarian socialist movements in first-world countries?

  1. They feel guilty about their relatively unearned wealth and need to virtue signal their worth by appearing to care for those of lesser accomplishments and assets.
  2. They want to curtail any challengers to their exalted position.
  3. A diversionary tactic to help mask the “great crime underlying the great fortune.”
  4. They are on the way out and willing to burn down the existing system to achieve historical immortality.
  5. They are psychopaths and malignant narcissists and believe they can manipulate the system.
  6. They are racing a bear and will do anything to see that someone else is eaten first.
  7. They use technological advances to confuse and conflate technology with magic -- unfathomable to the masses and which demands a limited priesthood to keep the devil from gaining control of powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals  (e.g., they have rebranded 1960s remote telecomputing as cloud computing and SaaS (Software as a Service) to reinforce the mysterious over the commonplace.)

Bottom line...

As we have seen, the progressive communist democrats are willing to deliberately hurt people in pursuit of their toxic ideology.

Feel free to challenge my assumptions and assertions – bearing in mind that I realize these are generalizations and exceptions exist.

We are so screwed.

BOMBSHELL JAN 6 REVELATION: TRUMP HAS A TEMPER

CH-1

Once again, we are seeing the Adam Schiff/whistleblower ploy –meaningless hearsay and the characterization of personal behavior amplified by the corrupt and illegitimate Jan 6 Committee, presented without challenge, cross-examination, or rebuttal. Totally worthless in a court of law.

We appear to have an aggrieved and disgruntled employee who was pissed that she could not join the Trump team after he left Office and departed for Florida. Notice that nobody asked her if she was coached or if promises were made in return for her testimony?

Another spy in the White House!

Bottom line…

This crap revelation is worth an “emergency hearing” and loud questions about her “personal safety?”

What an effin joke. Nobody gives a rat’s ass!

Of course, President Trump had a right to be angry – he was surrounded by traitors, spies, and people out to destroy his presidency.

And those who are revealing conversations within the White House should be prosecuted for leaking confidential discussions with White House Officials covered by Executive Privilege and non-disclosure agreements. There is no predicate of criminal activity that warrants this public display of arrogance.

I can’t wait to see Biden’s people testify about what happened with Biden and about the Hunter-related matters.

We are so screwed.

LOCK & LOAD: CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL LEAKED PERSONAL INFORMATION ON CCW PERMIT HOLDERS TO PUBLIC

WARNING-GB

The evildoers, including criminals, crazies, and terrorists, might be coming for your guns…

Attorney General Bonta Releases New Firearms Data to Increase Transparency and Information Sharing

California Attorney General today announced new and updated firearms data available through the California Department of Justice (DOJ)’s 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal. The dashboard is accessible though DOJ’s OpenJustice Data Platform. The announcement will improve transparency and information sharing for firearms-related data and includes broad enhancements to the platform to help the public access data on firearms in California, including information about the issuance of Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permits and Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs).

“Transparency is key to increasing public trust between law enforcement and the communities we serve,” said Attorney General Bonta. “As news of tragic mass shootings continue to dominate the news cycle, leaving many with feelings of fear and uncertainty, we must do everything we can to prevent gun violence. One of my continued priorities is to better provide information needed to help advance efforts that strengthen California’s commonsense gun laws. Today’s announcement puts power and information into the hands of our communities by helping them better understand the role and potential dangers of firearms within our state.”

DOJ seeks to balance its duties to provide gun violence and firearms data to support research efforts while protecting the personal identifying information in the data the Department collects and maintains. Data-driven research plays a critical role in keeping Californians safe by informing and shaping our commonsense gun laws. With today’s announcement, Attorney General Bonta is improving accessibility and functionality of the existing firearms database with expanded information in a comprehensive data dashboard. The dashboard includes data from the past decade when available on the following subjects:

  • Dealer Record of Sales
  • Gun Violence Restraining Orders
  • Carry Concealed Weapons Permits
  • Firearms Safety Certificates
  • Assault Weapons 
  • Roster of Certified Handguns

<Source>

A deliberate leak and dog whistle to activists?

We have seen numerous instances when the progressive communist democrats openly tolerate violence in support of radical leftist causes, even to the extent that they order the police to “stand down” and violate their sworn duties. So, there is no reason to believe this egregious leak was an accident.

Massive Trove of Gun Owners’ Private Information Leaked by California Attorney General

California gun owners have been put at risk by the Attorney General’s office after a new dashboard leaked their personal information.

The California Department of Justice’s 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal went live on Monday with publicly-accessible files that include identifying information for those who have concealed carry permits. The leaked information includes the person’s full name, race, home address, date of birth, and date their permit was issued. The data also shows the type of permit issued, indicating if the permit holder is a member of law enforcement or a judge.

The Reload reviewed a copy of the Los Angeles County database and found 244 judge permits listed in the database. The files included the home addresses, full names, and dates of birth for all of them. The same was true for seven custodial officers, 63 people with a place of employment permit, and 420 reserve officers.

2,891 people in Los Angeles County with standard licenses also had their information compromised by the leak, though the database appears to include some duplicate entries as well.

A video reviewed by The Reload shows the databases with detailed information were initially available for download via a button on the website’s mapping feature. They appeared to have been removed from public access by Tuesday afternoon and replaced with spreadsheets without the individualized identifying information.

The office of Attorney General Rob Bonta (D.) confirmed private information had been exposed and said they are examining the situation.

“We are investigating an exposure of individuals’ personal information connected to the DOJ Firearms Dashboard,” a spokesperson for the office told The Reload. “Any unauthorized release of personal information is unacceptable. We are working swiftly to address this situation and will provide additional information as soon as possible.” <Source>

Bottom line…

Remember this security breach when the government assures you that your personal non-public confidential information is safe and secure.

Remember, that partisan activists and evildoers often have government positions – some with keys to the information kingdom.

Today’s leak was probably caused by incompetence and negligence, where datasets were not examined before posting. But, considering the number of partisan progressive communist democrat leakers in California’s communist government, it could have been a deliberate act.

We are so screwed when we can’t trust our government.

THE THREE DEMOCRAT PILLARS: LIES, FUNDRAISING, AND VIOLENCE

Pelosi-schiff

It looks like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a joint fundraising email blast with liar/leaker/perjurer Adam Schiff (D-CA)…

Stephen, I need your immediate attention. And action.

[OCS: What you got is my disgust – for your lies and continuing disinformation.]

Trump’s Supreme Court just decided to take reproductive rights away from millions of women in this country.

[OCS: This is a BIG – yuuge – lie! It is not Trump’s Supreme Court. It belongs to the United States, and Justices and functionaries are all government employees. They have taken nothing away from millions of [insert term of the day for women here] because there is no contemplation or mention of “reproductive rights” in the U.S. Constitution. The matter of reproductive rights has been adequately restored to the purview of the States or “We the People” as per the Tenth Amendment.]

I don’t say this lightly:

But how we act NOW will decide not only the future of reproductive rights for women, but also determine whether Republicans around the country can repeal a whole host of other rights Americans possess. Believe that.

[OCS: If you want reproductive rights to be enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, the method for Amending the Constitution is clear and unambiguous – and not dependent on nine individuals in black robes. As for repealing other sexual matters, they, too, are not to be found in the U.S. Constitution and should be removed. The Constitution does not define a man or a woman, marriage, or individual sexual acts.]

We can either sit back and admit defeat to these far-right extremists

[OCS: You are being offered a choice between left and right extremism – although most Americans do not embrace extremist views. This is why the Constitution is unlikely to be amended, and the progressive communist democrats must rely on tortured rulings from partisan hacks in the lower Courts.]

Or we can RISE UP, meet this ONCE-IN-A-GENERATION challenge, and marshal a response so HISTORIC, that we can make every last anti-choice Republican REGRET what they’ve done.

[OCS: Progress, good, bad, or indifferent, is always historic. The U.S. Constitution is for limiting the government's intrusion into our lives and not punishing the Republicans or anyone else for that matter.]

Stephen, Democrats have never needed your support more than right now. Can you chip in $15 so we can WIN these midterms and codify women’s reproductive rights into law?

This isn’t a normal fundraising email from me. And a normal response won’t suffice.

[OCS: Yada. Yada. Yada. Play it again, Nancy!]

Tomorrow morning, Republican operatives will look at our results from THIS EMAIL to see whether strong Democrats like you are fired up.

If we post the same run-of-the-mill numbers, McConnell and McCarthy will think they can get away with ANYTHING.

[OCS: Of course, these are lies! ActBlue nor the campaigns share information with the opposition. The only reporting is done quarterly in a report to the feckless FEC (Federal Election Commission), whose fines are but a slap on the wrist and often paid with donor funds.]

So, I’m asking you to step up in this moment of crisis.

Our ONLY option is to marshal a response so historic that we DEFEAT every anti-choice Republican who made this happen, EXPAND our Majorities in the House and Senate, and FINALLY codify our reproductive rights into law.

So, Stephen, can I expect to see your name among thousands of others who stood up in this historic moment to be a pro-choice champion? We need you:

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately and be split between Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi:

EXPRESS DONATE $5

EXPRESS DONATE $10

EXPRESS DONATE $25

EXPRESS DONATE $50

EXPRESS DONATE $100

ANOTHER AMOUNT

I know you’re livid. We both are. But in times of crisis, our ONLY response can be to stand up and fight for what’s right. Always.

Thank you for fighting with me on the right side of history.

[OCS: Since the founding fathers created our magnificent Constitution, up to January 22, 1973, there was no history, tradition, or mention of any reproductive right contained within the U.S. Constitution. Indeed, there was never any basis for reproductive rights to be found anywhere in the language of the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, or in any other writings of the founders. This is a right crafted out of whole cloth using a tortured explanation of its creation.

One could make the point that ONLY life is an inalienable right as the United States Declaration of Independence uses three examples (Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness) of the inalienable rights which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect. No mention of infanticide or abortion.

As for the wrong side of history, how can Democrats explain slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism?]

Bottom line…

Held: The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.

What can I say other than to excise the growing metastasizing cancerous malignancy that is the Democrat Party?

We are so screwed.

A SUMMERS' NIGHTMARE

BSRThere is no doubt in my mind that economist Larry Summers is a very smart man.

Likewise, there is no doubt that Summers possesses a progressive Democrat outlook after serving as the 8th Director of the National Economic Council  (January 20, 2009 – January 20, 2011) under President Barack Obama and the 71st United States Secretary of the Treasury (August 11, 1995 – July 2, 1999) under President Bill Clinton.

But, like most partisan Democrats, his worldview has been warped by partisan Democrat policies that indicate that the Democrats would much rather accrete political power by managing scarce resources than growing the pie to provide more resources to the people—embracing a centrally-planned economy that ignores local conditions rather than a distributed economy that is based on local needs.

So why am I not surprised to find that…

Larry Summers Says US Needs 5% Jobless Rate for Five Years to Ease Inflation

Former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers said the US jobless rate would need to rise above 5% for a sustained period in order to curb inflation that’s running at the hottest pace in four decades.

“We need five years of unemployment above 5% to contain inflation -- in other words, we need two years of 7.5% unemployment or five years of 6% unemployment or one year of 10% unemployment,” said Summers said in a speech in London Monday. “There are numbers that are remarkably discouraging relative to the Fed Reserve view.” 

Fed policy makers raised interested by 75 basis points on Wednesday, the biggest increase since 1994. In their accompanying outlook, they signaled they see inflation easing from above 6% today to below 3% next year and near 2% in 2024. The median forecast showed unemployment rising to 4.1% by 2024, from 3.6% in May.

“The gap between 7.5% unemployment for two years and 4.1% unemployment for one year is immense,” said Summers, a Harvard University professor and paid contributor to Bloomberg Television. “Is our central bank prepared to do what is necessary to stabilize inflation if something like what I’ve estimated is necessary?”

The Fed on Friday said it would do what is needed to get prices under control, reiterating that price stability is necessary to support a strong labor market and calling its commitment to reining in inflation “unconditional.”

Summers repeated his prior calls that the Fed’s task of tempering price gains is similar in scale to that of former Chair Paul Volcker, who had to engineer a deep recession and double-digit unemployment 40 years ago to get inflation under control.

“The US may need as severe monetary tightening as Paul Volcker pushed through in the late 1970s early 1980s,” Summers said.

He said the central bank should move away from providing communication to the public about the likely future course of monetary policy. 

“The return to humility, the abandonment of forward guidance as a policy tool is entirely appropriate,” Summers said. “It is likely to be necessary to make much more difficult choices than yet contemplated between acceptance of slack and acceptance of sustained, above-target inflation.”

“In that way, I fear we are going to have both elements of secular stagnation and secular stagflation,” he said. <Source>

Now consider the alternative…

(1)  There is no doubt that the government is leaderless and out of control. Nobody appears willing to restrain Congress’ profligate spending or the lack of Executive Branch will to audit spending results and curb waste, fraud, and abuse.

(2)  The Fed and the Treasury are complicit in flooding the marketplace with cheap money. At the same time, the Executive Branch curtails the development and production of energy and imposes restrictions on the unions that create logistical nightmares impacting our economy with supply chain problems.

(3)  Since this inflation is manufactured by the Democrats, let us start from the definition of inflation: too much money chasing too few goods. In this definition lies the solution.

  • Curtail needless non-prioritized spending.
  • Lower taxes.
  • Reduce regulations, including artificial wage restrictions.
  • Open energy production.
  • Bring critical manufacturing on-shore, primarily building materials, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, and other essential goods.
  • Strengthen and harden our water, electric, and gas distribution networks.
  • Quit playing with agricultural subsidies and price supports and increase exportable commodities to feed the world, perhaps in return for critical commodities like rare earth materials.
  • Eliminate political earmarks that are little more than special interest subsidies.

Increasing the pie fixes the problems, both in prices and availabilities.

I would much rather listen to economist Thomas Sowell than a progressive idiot like Summers spouting the party line.

"Not only has all the runaway spending and rapid escalation of the deficit to record levels failed to make any real headway in reducing unemployment, all this money pumped into the economy has also failed to produce inflation....There may not be any inflation now, but eventually that money is going to start moving, and so will the price level."

If you define a tax as only those things that the government chooses to call a tax, you get a radically different picture from what you get when you say, “If it looks like a tax, acts like a tax and takes away your resources like a tax, then it’s a tax.”

One of the biggest, and one of the oldest, taxes in this latter sense is inflation. Governments have stolen their people’s resources this way, not just for centuries, but for thousands of years.

Hyperinflation can take virtually your entire life’s savings, without the government having to bother raising the official tax rate at all. The Weimar Republic in Germany in the 1920s had thousands of printing presses turning out vast amounts of money, which the government could then spend to pay for whatever it wanted to pay for.

Of course, prices skyrocketed with vastly more money in circulation. Many people’s life savings would not buy a loaf of bread. For all practical purposes, they had been robbed, big time.

Bottom line…

Until we defeat the progressive communist democrats and get serious and substantive leadership, we are so screwed.

ADAM SCHIFFS THE BED AGAIN...

Bs-adam-schiff

One would think that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), a Harvard-trained attorney, would better understand the U.S. Constitution.

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO-2

Stephen, we must expand the Supreme Court.

[OCS: Ignoring precedent – how shocking – especially when the progressive communist democrats demand that precedent (stare decisis) control the law when deciding abortion issues.]

It is, by far, the most unrepresentative U.S. institution in our government, yet it is also one of the most powerful.

[OCS: Only the House of Representatives was designed to directly represent the people. And for the first 125 years of the Constitution, the people did not directly vote for senators -- the state legislators elected Senators. It took the 17th Amendment to change to the direct election of Senators.] 

We saw the consequences of its imbalance just yesterday. After the installation of three Trump-appointed justices, the hyper-partisan Court overturned Roe v. Wade, ending the constitutional right to an abortion.

[OCS: The makeup of the Court never seems to bother progressive communist democrats like Adam Schiff when rulings affirm the progressive agenda. The overriding fact is that there is no constitutional right to abortion anywhere in the Constitution’s enumerated powers granted to the federal government. Such rights are reserved to the States or “the people” as per the Tenth Amendment. Hyper-partisanship can be easily demonstrated by observing the three liberal justices voting in lockstep when matters are clear and unambiguous.]

It’s shocking and heartbreaking — but given the makeup of the current Court, it’s also, unfortunately, not surprising. In fact, this has been the Republican plan for decades.

[OCS: As if there has been no decades-long plan by the progressive communist democrats to seize perpetual authoritarian powers.]

And with members of the Court enjoying lifelong appointments, we’re stuck with their staunchly partisan, extreme agenda for generations, unless we act.

[OCS: Shortsighted and stupid – what prevents the next administration from enlarging the Court? Of course, that’s the goal, destroy the Supreme Court as the guardian of constitutionally-protected God-given rights or natural law. Like the right to self-defense and to resist tyranny.]

It shouldn’t be this way. Today’s Supreme Court is unfair, unjust, and no longer reflects what our founding fathers intended it to beit’s being used as a purely partisan tool for Republicans to unilaterally reverse progress and strike down our fundamental rights, starting with Roe v. Wade.

[OCS: The Court’s duty is to rule on the constitutionality of issues and settle matters between the states. And since the right to abortion is not in the U.S. Constitution, it is unconstitutional, and the Court rendered a fair and just ruling. This is precisely what our founding fathers envisioned.]

Congress must take action. Adding additional justices to the Supreme Court is nothing new historically, and doing this will help restore legitimacy and ensure our nation’s highest Court doesn’t continue to be used to advance a partisan agenda at odds with the interests of the American people. In short, McConnell and Trump stacked the Court, and we must unstack it.

[OCS: Schiff is lying. The sole purpose of court-packing is to create a progressive majority to curtail the rights of American citizens. Does anyone believe that Obama and his cadre of communists will not dictate the nominees though an incoherent Biden and a Democrat majority Senate (with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaker) would ram them through Senate confirmation?]

Stephen, join me in demanding Congress expand the Supreme Court by adding your name now.

SIGN ON

Watching decades of settled law be swept away in order to eliminate abortion rights, with no regard for what the majority of Americans want, should show you all you need to know about what’s to come if we continue to let this far-right majority determine the law of the land.

[OCS: Unconstitutional laws must be swept away like debris. Again, there is no constitutional right to abortion. Upholding the U.S. Constitution is an oath that has been violated by the three Justices voting against what should have been a unanimous decision if the justices were not far-left partisans.]

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for taking action.

— Adam

Bottom line…

There is no right to abortion, contraception, same-sex marriage, or other sexual rights in the U.S. Constitution. They are all State rights under the Tenth Amendment.

Liar/leaker/perjurer Adam Schiff should not be re-elected and expelled from the House of Representatives for his continuing efforts to destroy America. Schiff represents a clear and present danger to America as House Speaker Pelosi’s bitch.

This is why the progressive communist democrats no longer want to teach history and civics or want their perverted revisionist history substituted in every classroom.

We are so screwed.
