LIAR, LEAKER ADAM SCHIFF TROTS OUT TRADITIONAL DEMOCRAT BOGEYMAN

As election day draws near and races tighten, leave it to liar, leaker Adam Schiff (D-CA) to trot out the old Democrat bogeyman – the GOP wants to kill Medicare and Social Security. A traditional senior citizen scare tactic as venerable as the “throwing granny off the cliff” meme.

SCHIFF-TRUST-ME

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO-2

Let’s make this plain, Stephen. Social Security and Medicare are on the GOP’s chopping block.

The Washington Post just reported that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is prepared to cut Medicare and Social Security if Republicans win the majority. He is even threatening to hold the US economy hostage and default on our national debt by refusing to raise the debt ceiling in order to get the cuts he wants to these critical programs.

[OCS: The Washington Post, owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos, is a bastion of progressive communist democrat propaganda, colloquially known as “fake news.” Considering the profligate and wasteful spending of the Democrats and the nearly trillion dollars in unspent budgeted amounts, raising the spending cap to support more uncontrolled spending during inflationary times is not only foolish but dangerous. Congress should be reducing spending and prioritizing needs in an inflationary period that is rapidly leading to a recession -- most likely to turn into a depression.]

Such a default alone would trigger a global economic meltdown and could very well start another depression.

[OCS: It is the Democrats who are bankrupting the system with their extravagant and wasteful spending and the outright theft of Medicare funds to fund Obamacare and its primary offering, Medicaid. If anything, the progressive communist democrats will do anything to eliminate Medicare in favor of a single-payer system where everyone is entitled to Medicaid-like offerings – where bureaucrats decide treatments, reimbursements, and use delay and denial as de facto healthcare rationing.]

All so that Republicans can cut Medicare and the Social Security checks that Americans have earned. Just to provide a return on investment to the GOP’s billionaire campaign donors. They simply don’t care if it means that seniors will struggle even more to get by.

[OCS: Truth be told, the Democrats have abandoned working and middle-class Americans and have become the party of billionaires and special interests living off the taxpayer’s labor.]

Republicans only threaten to default on our debt when there is a Democratic president. Congress raised the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration.

[OCS: We have never truly defaulted on our debt as it would cause global chaos and panic. Congress was coerced into raising the debt ceiling to avoid the poor political optics of a government shutdown. Remember, essential services are still available during a shutdown, and the government shuts down two days weekly.]

Republicans passed a tax scam in the dead of night with corporate lobbyists literally writing the amendments. Lindsey Graham told a reporter the financial contributions would stop if they didn’t pass it.

[OCS: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has killed most of the amendments offered by Members, especially those arising from GOP sources. Almost all legislation is written by special interests, as the Members of Congress are too stupid or lazy to do the research and heavy lifting. Even worse, they write legislative outlines and outsource law-making to the Executive Branch agencies to craft laws using administrative rules and regulations. Lindsey Graham is an aisle-hopping schmuck whose word is worthless.]

The national debt climbed to $7 trillion.

[OCS: And the progressive communist democrats want to spend even more – enough to collapse our capitalist system in favor of an authoritarian rule to benefit the wealthy, politically-connected elites who own Congress. $7 trillion is unthinkable, and its growth rate is unsustainable. The very last reason for supporting Democrats.]

Republicans love to play politics when it suits them, but the fact of the matter is that their economic plans have brought nothing but catastrophe.

[OCS: Classic projection – it is the Democrats whose “economic plans have brought nothing but catastrophe.”

We can’t let Kevin McCarthy lay a finger on our Medicare and Social Security — these programs must be protected. We can’t let McCarthy become Speaker.

[OCS: The nation may not be able to survive another two years of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff without a GOP check and balance to their corrupt and criminal actions.]

Please, Stephen, chip in $10 or whatever you can spare today to fight back against McCarthy’s threat to default on the nation’s debt, to protect our House majority, and to protect Medicare and Social Security.

Thanks,

— Adam

Bottom line…

All I know at this point is that progressive communist democrats are at the root of all of our nation’s problems.

You cannot continue the out-of-control massive spending, overly-generous welfare programs with government handouts that incentivize people to stay at home, open borders with indigent, low-skill illegal aliens pouring over the border, corporate welfare subsidies that pick winners and losers in a collapsing energy sector that is artificially constrained, and a monetary policy managed by politics not supply-side economics, and trillion-dollar wars that subsidizes the military-industrial complex. Not to mention a criminal justice system that favors criminals over victims.

But it is a crap shoot whether or not Republicans have the political will to make the hard choices to reform a broken system and implement corrective actions.

Hence, I will vote Republican over Democrat to staunch the money freely flowing into a failing system.

We are so screwed.

A WARNING TO MY AUSTRALIAN FRIENDS

CHIAUS

Australia used to be a wonderous land, full of freedom-loving, easy-going Ozzies.

Now it appears to be run by corrupt progressive communist politicians who have sold the nation out to the Communist Chinese and are implementing Chinese-style surveillance and authoritarian controls.

Australia’s Commonwealth Bank begins tracking transactions, links it to carbon footprint

Surveilling transactions to nudge social change.

Australia’s Commonwealth Bank (CBA) has added a new feature to its online banking software that tells customers their carbon footprint based on monthly spending. The move follows a partnership between the bank and CoGo, a company that provides carbon footprint management solutions.

According to the bank, the national average of carbon emitted is 1,280 kilograms, while a sustainable figure is 200. The bank has provided the option to “pay a fee” to offset the carbon footprint.

CBA said it does not share data with CoGo. It added that eventually the data will be broken down into each individual transaction.

The bank calculates a person’s carbon footprint based on the transactions using their credit or debit cards.

“By combining our rich customer data and CoGo’s industry-leading capability in measuring carbon outputs, we will be able to provide greater transparency for customers so that they can take actionable steps to reduce their environmental footprint,” CommBank Group executive Angus Sullivan said in a statement.

“Our data capability will provide greater personalization for customers over time, including more granular information about their carbon footprint with the option to offset individual transactions.”

He added: “There are more opportunities for customers to take actionable steps to reduce and offset their emissions than ever before. From purchasing clean energy products via a 0.99 percent Green Loan and accessing renewable energy at wholesale costs with Amber, to customers now being able to offset their monthly transactions via the CommBank app using CoGo’s technology.” <Source>

A message to Australia’s Commonwealth Bank: Get stuffed!

(1)  Global warming is an elite hoax used to secure political control and manage wealth redistribution and is based on the unproven hypothesis that carbon dioxide emissions are a significant driver of climate change and therefore need to be monitored and regulated.

(2)  Carbon offsets are just another tax on individuals and organizations meant to coerce regime-acceptable behaviors.

(3)  There are no accurate measures of carbon footprints, nor are there any measurements that can detect, isolate, and measure man’s effect on the global climate among the natural variability of the global climate.

(4)  Fair dinkum: the drivers of climate change such as the Sun’s energy output in all spectral bands, cosmic rays, the Earth’s position relative to the Sun, the Earth’s precessional and rotational dynamics, the Earth’s magnetosphere, plate tectonics and vulcanology, the deep ocean currents, the internal dynamics of the Earth, and the most significant greenhouse gas of all, water vapor, are all macro phenomena that cannot be mitigated by man’s efforts, no matter how heroic.

(5)  It is a very short leap from measuring your carbon footprint using the regime’s criteria, to calculating a Communist Chinese-style social credit score used to reward or punish you based on behavior approved by the regime.

Australia’s Commonwealth Bank (CBA), a history of misconduct ...

  • The Commonwealth Bank admitted to being the worst financial services entity in Australia for charging customers fees for financial advice they never received. <Source>
  • Commonwealth Bank’s financial advisers have charged dead clients for financial advice – in one case for more than a decade – according to shocking evidence heard at the banking royal commission. <Source
  • At the Commonwealth Bank, chief risk officer David Cohen had prepared several memos for the end-of-year bonus decision at the board's remuneration committee. A five-page attachment listed dozens of problems, from dodgy consumer credit insurance sales to an overdraft error that could have cost $139 million. No executive's names were listed next to each item, although the responsible business units were. <Source>
  • For further scandals and controversies -- <Read This>

Perhaps the CBA is the last entity you want to trust with your private data? Known colloquially as "CommBank," perhaps they should be known as "CommiBank."

Bottom line…

Individuals, both in Australia and the United States, appear to be losing their freedoms to a coalition of globalists (World Economic Forum) and authoritarian communists. All made possible by corrupt government officials financed by hostile foreign powers and working through domestic consultants, advisors, corporations, and foundations.

We are so screwed.

MANDATORY CHILDHOOD VACCINATIONS: WHO IS LEFT TO BELIEVE?

WORK-CAN

We have entered an era where partisan politics and the quest for power have destroyed the credibility and reliability of many formerly well-respected institutions and well-credentialed individuals.

In essence, you are now playing a game called “You Bet Your Life” based on conflicting reports from institutions and individuals who speak with certainty and credentialed authority as they purport to understand “The Science” and make general recommendations that should be made on a case-by-case basis by a physician with knowledge of your family history, medical conditions, and allergies. And even your physician may be constrained by the practice or facility where they work.

In California, physicians may be forced to parrot the regime’s messaging – coerced by severe personal and professional consequences.

California Approves Bill to Punish Doctors Who Spread False Information

Trying to strike a balance between free speech and public health, California’s Legislature on Monday approved a bill that would allow regulators to punish doctors for spreading false information about Covid-19 vaccinations and treatments.

The legislation, if signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom, would make the state the first to try to legislate a remedy to a problem that the American Medical Association, among other medical groups and experts, says has worsened the impact of the pandemic, resulting in thousands of unnecessary hospitalizations and deaths. <Source>

There are credible reports from well-credentialed, well-experienced physicians and researchers who have documented evidence of alternative (non-regime approved) treatment protocols that have proved efficacious and have kept individuals from being hospitalized. Unfortunately, the CDC and FDA refuse to review or debate such findings. So who is likely to determine the “correct” information – the corrupt CDC, Big Pharma, or politically compromised institutions?

We find the CDC at the forefront among the agencies severely compromised by partisan politics with their use of “hidden” data, cherry-picked reports, and refusal to hear and debate contradictory findings.

CDC advisers unanimously approve COVID-19 vaccines on childhood, adult immunization schedules

More than half the states refer to Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations in their immunization laws.

The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices unanimously approved the addition of COVID-19 vaccines to the routine immunization schedules for children, adolescents and adults at its meeting Thursday.

The child and adolescent schedule recommends up to four doses of COVID vaccines, including those still under emergency use authorization, starting at 6 months old. It includes a two- or three-dose primary series and a booster. The adult schedule, starting at age 19, is the same.

Adding COVID vaccines to the routine schedules will trigger laws in some states that require school districts to enforce the schedule on schoolchildren. More than half the states referenced ACIP recommendations in their immunization laws as of January 2021.

Critics of the recommendations are pushing back on the data cited by the advisors to justify amending the schedule.<Source>

Even worse, mandates are being imposed by school districts that unquestioning follow the guidance of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), believing this immunized (pun intended) them from legal claims of harm and make them susceptible to compensatory and punitive damages.

CDC VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Reporting System)…
 
As for reliability, VAERS, a program run by the CDC and FDA, is susceptible to unverified reports, misattribution, underreporting, and inconsistent data quality. <Source> As a voluntary program that the public and professionals may use, it is believed that underreporting only hints at potential trouble spots.
 
Cdc-adverse
 

Where is the science?  One scientific paper suggests that the risk of schoolchildren hospitalized for COVID-19 may be less than the risk of severe side effects…

Age-stratified infection fatality rate of COVID-19 in the non-elderly informed from pre-vaccination national seroprevalence studies

Angelo Maria Pezzullo, Cathrine Axfors, Despina G. Contopoulos-Ioannidis, Alexandre Apostolatos, John P.A. Ioannidis

doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/2022.10.11.22280963

ABSTRACT

The infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 among non-elderly people in the absence of vaccination or prior infection is important to estimate accurately, since 94% of the global population is younger than 70 years and 86% is younger than 60 years. In systematic searches in SeroTracker and PubMed (protocol: https://osf.io/xvupr), we identified 40 eligible national seroprevalence studies covering 38 countries with pre-vaccination seroprevalence data. For 29 countries (24 high-income, 5 others), publicly available age-stratified COVID-19 death data and age-stratified seroprevalence information were available and were included in the primary analysis. The IFRs had a median of 0.035% (interquartile range (IQR) 0.013 - 0.056%) for the 0-59 years old population, and 0.095% (IQR 0.036 - 0.125%,) for the 0-69 years old. The median IFR was 0.0003% at 0-19 years, 0.003% at 20-29 years, 0.011% at 30-39 years, 0.035% at 40-49 years, 0.129% at 50-59 years, and 0.501% at 60-69 years. Including data from another 9 countries with imputed age distribution of COVID-19 deaths yielded median IFR of 0.025-0.032% for 0-59 years and 0.063-0.082% for 0-69 years. Meta-regression analyses also suggested global IFR of 0.03% and 0.07%, respectively in these age groups. The current analysis suggests a much lower pre-vaccination IFR in non-elderly populations than previously suggested. Large differences did exist between countries and may reflect differences in comorbidities and other factors. These estimates provide a baseline from which to fathom further IFR declines with the widespread use of vaccination, prior infections, and evolution of new variants.

Even if you could read this (as yet to be peer-reviewed) paper, you would struggle to understand the paper in the context of other published papers presenting confirmatory or conflicting findings.

Bottom line…

The threat of withholding your child's education in favor of putting their long-term health at risk is nothing short of playing Russian Roulette. 

The best advice I can suggest is to have your child evaluated by a competent medical professional and seek a medical or religious exemption if the vaccine is contraindicated or appears unnecessary. Children with severe comorbidities should be continually assessed individually.

It appears that this is also a ploy to transfer adverse event liability from the vaccine makers to the government.

Amazingly, it is the progressive communist democrats who scream "my body, my choice" the loudest when it comes to killing children in the womb but are strangely silent on the vaccine issue.

In any event, we are screwed when the institutions and individuals you would generally trust have been coerced by the regime or politically compromised by a toxic ideology.

PHYSICS: SCIENTISTS FIND NEW ELEMENTARY PARTICLE THAT HELPS EXPLAIN THE UNIVERSE

Atomic
It appears that physicists, mostly government-funded scientists, have confirmed the existence of a strange new particle that helps explain how the universe functions.

Although the particle was long-known to exist, and its theoretical properties predicted by physicists specializing in n-dimensional string theory, the sudden appearance of the particle’s physical manifestation on a large Newtonian macro-scale since 2008 gives rise to its renaming as an elemental particle. Due to its increasing size and abundance in our environment, expensive particle accelerators with ultrasensitive detectors are no longer needed. The particle can now be detected at room temperature with the unaided eye.

The particle’s properties are quite amazing…

  • Like many elemental quantum particles, the particle exhibits a duality of nature dependent on the observer’s position and frame of reference.
  • The heavy-mass particle appears variable and depends upon the region of space it occupies during observation.
  • The particle has a variable charge that can be a highly-charged negative, neutral, or highly-charged positive, depending on the environment in which it is being observed.
  • The particle has three spin states: up, down, or dead neutral, depending on the environment in which it is being observed.
  • Like other particles, the force it exerts on other objects obeys the classical F=ma, where force equals the particle’s mass times its acceleration. Unlike conventional forces, the force can be variable when in close proximity to other charged (positive, negative, and neutral) particles.
  • However, the most shocking characteristic of these elemental particles was that it responded to the political influence of partisan positional funding.

What to name the new particle…

Even scientists can’t keep up with all the newly discovered particles – our new naming scheme could help

Physicists at CERN have discovered a plethora of new exotic particles being created in the collisions produced by the Large Hadron Collider over the past few years. So many have been found in fact, that our collaboration (LHCb), which has discovered 59 out of 66 recent particles, has come up with a new naming scheme to help us impose some order on the growing particle zoo

The final guiding principle behind the scheme is that it should be accepted by the wider particle physics community. Although the LHCb collaboration has discovered most of the new particles, which traditionally gives us some naming rights, there are other current and planned experiments in this area, and their contributions are essential for the progress of the field. There are also, of course, many theorists across the world working hard to interpret the measurements that are being made.

Both the general principles and the details of the new naming scheme have been discussed with these different groups, with positive and constructive feedback incorporated into our final version.

A naming scheme is an important part of the language used to communicate between people working in particle physics. We hope that this new scheme will help in the ongoing quest to understand how the so-called strong force confines quarks inside hadrons, for example – a feature that defies deep mathematical understanding.

New experimental results including the discoveries of new hadrons are fueling improvements in theoretical understanding. Further discoveries could one day lead to a breakthrough. Ultimately, though, the success of the new scheme will be judged by how often conversations include the phrase: “Remind me, which one is that again?” <Source>

In light of these discoveries and ultra-accurate measurements, the particle will be officially named by the National Academies Committee on Elementary Particle Physics.

The new proposed particle name pays homage to the Obama Administration, where project funding was first allocated, and the Biden Administration, where the majority of the macro-scale observations in the company of Democrats were observed. Henceforth, the elemental particle shall join the ranks of electrons, protons, and neutrons and be known as the moron. The particle’s corresponding force carrier, a tier-one boson, will be known as the bozo. The Committee on International System of Units, represented in the United States by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), has agreed that the official measurement unit associated with the newly-named particle will be the Cf “unit of confusion").

Bottom line…

It is wonderful when a 97% consensus of scientists and other stakeholders can define “The Science.”

We are so screwed.

-- Steve

Reference: Exotic hadron naming convention -- LHCb collaboration at CERN

Abstract

Many new exotic hadrons, that do not t into the existing naming scheme for hadrons, have been discovered over the past few years. A new scheme is set out, extending the existing protocol, in order to provide a consistent naming convention for these newly discovered states, and other new hadrons that may be discovered in future.

WE ARE SCREWED: DANCHENKO WALKS FREE AFTER LYING TO THE FBI

Durham

Once again, we have seen a high-profile politically-charged case, with what appears to be incontrovertible evidence of wrongdoing, come to an inglorious end that seems to thwart accountability for the most notorious political subversion of a presidential election in our nation’s history.

An Alexandria, Virginia, jury has acquitted Russian policy researcher Igor Danchenko on false-statement charges made to the FBI. A case brought and prosecuted and personally presented in Court by Special Counsel John Durham.

Durham’s response to a crushing defeat he personally prosecuted...

Special Counsel Durham: "While we are disappointed in the outcome, we respect the jury’s decision and thank them for their service. I also want to recognize and thank the investigators and the prosecution team for their dedicated efforts in seeking truth and justice in this case"

I suspect the jury acted out of fear. Fearful of displeasing the regime or being ostracized or worse with their family, friends, and neighbors.

It's likely over...

Even if the Republicans secure a House majority, Congressional Committees do not have the authority to investigate, prosecute, try, and convict anyone criminally – they are limited to oversight and investigating matters that can impact existing or future legislation. While they can make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice, it is unlikely that the corrupt partisan Attorney General will prosecute fellow Democrats who have spied on Americans, interfered in federal elections, and harmed the Presidency of the United States.

The sad fact is that most people remain apathetic to what’s happening to our great nation – often believing someone else will deal with the issues of the day. Even worse, the media propagandists will support the regime and ignore instances of criminal wrongdoing -- so much for "speaking truth to power."

Bottom line…

In the final analysis, the DOJ, FBI, CIA, and NSA engineered a massive coverup and succeeded -- not by hiding the emerging truth, but by protecting individuals from prosecution resulting in prison time. 

It seems that the corrupt elements of the government, including the judiciary, will protect the corrupt, racist progressive communist democrat regime at all costs. As long as Democrats and establishment Republicans are in power, I have little or no faith that anybody will be held accountable for their corrupt actions.

Nor do I believe that tough-taking GOP representatives like Trey Gowdy, Darryl Issa, and the letter-writing Chuck Grassley have any impact on the corrupt system, including waste, fraud, and abuse.

We are so screwed.

Liar, leaker, and reprobate scum Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) provides a 180-degree example of progressive communist democrat projection.

After seeing the chaos and destruction wreaked by the Obama and Obama/Biden Administrations, it is unbelievable that Adam Schiff and his fellow progressive communist democrats could even have a nodding acquaintance with truth, decency, justice, and democracy. 

As with all things Democrat, they represent the opposite of truth, decency, justice, and democracy as they continue to destroy our nation from within.

CAN ANYONE REALLY BREAK APPLE'S SECURITY FOR $39?

We live in a scary world where security, confidentiality, and privacy are often a joke…

Redflag-1

That was then…

March 29, 2016: Apple vs FBI: All you need to know

Last month, a federal judge asked Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone belonging to Syed Farook, who was responsible for the shootings in San Bernardino in December which left 14 people dead.

The judge asked Apple to provide “reasonable technical assistance” to the U.S. authorities, which would require the technology giant to overhaul the system that disables the phone after 10 unsuccessful password attempts. Once this feature kicks in, all the data on the phone is inaccessible. Apple declined to help the FBI.

At the time, Apple chief executive Tim Cook called the order “chilling” and said that it would require writing new software that would be “a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks”. Cook’s argument was that if the FBI could access this iPhone, nothing would stop them from doing it to many others.

Law enforcement authorities insisted that it was a one-off request. As a result the case went to court. <Source>

January 14, 2020: Apple refuses government’s request to unlock Pensacola shooting suspect’s iPhones

Saudi Air Force 2nd Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani shot to death three Americans at Pensacola Naval Air Station on Dec. 6. The 21-year-old gunman was fatally shot by a deputy sheriff during the attack, which U.S. officials called an act of terrorism.

Apple continues to refuse Barr’s request that it help find a way for law enforcement to access encrypted devices with a court order, like the one Apple resisted in 2016 in the case of a shooter’s iPhone in San Bernardino, California. In that case, the point was dropped when the FBI was able to crack into the phone without Apple’s help, but the incident raised questions about the balance between civil liberties and public safety that have yet to be settled. <Source>

SHOCKING NEWS: PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER ENDORSES A NON-FUNCTIONING SENATE CANDIDATE

FETTERMAN

I find it shocking that the editors of the Philadelphia Inquirer, a paper of record located in the literal birthplace of the U.S. Constitution and other historical events, would turn their back on the State’s citizens to promote a toxic progressive communist democrat candidate who is physically and mentally unfit to be a representative of Philadelphians in the Senate of the United States.

Even more shocking is that the editors are turning their back on a self-made man, Mehmet Öz, a well-respected cardiothoracic surgeon with remarkable decision-making abilities in situations with life-or-death consequences for a ne’er-do-well who received an allowance from his parents until he was in his 40s.

Perhaps, the Inquirer Editorial Board is looking to emulate the experience of President Biden, a corrupt and cognitively impaired individual managed by a backroom cabal of Obama’s acolytes who have usurped the power of the presidency for their nefarious agenda.

Unbelievable…

The Republican nominee, Mehmet Oz, is wholly unprepared to be the commonwealth’s U.S. senator.

By many measures, the first two years of the Biden administration have been fruitful for Pennsylvania.

[OCS: By any measure, this is a bald-faced lie. Considering inflation, the disastrous energy policy, the destruction of the U.S. Constitution, and the implementation of a surveillance state, I would suggest that the citizens of Philadelphia have been sucker-punched.]

The president’s plan to slash prescription-drug costs for older Americans directly benefits 73,000 Pennsylvanians, fifth most of any state in the nation. The commonwealth stands to receive more than $2.5 billion to repair highways and bridges this year under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. And the Inflation Reduction Act includes provisions to mitigate the harms of climate change through more than a quarter billion dollars in new clean-energy investments statewide through the end of the decade.

[OCS: Only select drugs are covered, others will see their prices increase dramatically. Research into less common diseases will become economically unfeasible. The infrastructure law was mostly pork and devoted to union make-work projects. And, the Inflation Reduction Act is little more than a dishonestly-named version of Build Back Better, which promoted the global warming hoax with billions of additional dollars.]

There is still much more work to be done in Washington on issues that Pennsylvanians care about, including protecting abortion rights and restoring the enhanced child tax credit, which reduced hunger and poverty in our state and across the nation. These initiatives and others could potentially stall in Congress’ divided upper house. That is just one reason why it is crucial for Pennsylvania voters to elect John Fetterman to the U.S. Senate in November.

[OCS: Abortion is a state issue, not a federal one. The child tax credit merely gives you back a portion of what has already been taken from you -- better to lower taxes. And inflationary food prices help nobody. Fetterman is unable to understand simple speech without a written transcript, cannot possibly understand 1000-page bills, or credibly speak to the Senate on behalf of Philadelphians.]

In the Democratic primary in May, this board chose to endorse Conor Lamb for the seat being vacated by Pat Toomey. Lamb’s positions on such issues as abortion rights, the filibuster, the child tax credit, and other matters of public policy largely aligned with our own. At the time, Fetterman also struggled to demonstrate sufficient reflection about a 2013 episode in which he drew a shotgun on an unarmed Black man who Fetterman, then mayor of Braddock, Pa., wrongly suspected had been involved in a shooting.

[OCS: If the paper were intellectually honest and representative of current Democrat thinking, pulling a shotgun on an unarmed black citizen would be a disqualifying event.]

In a recent interview ahead of the Nov. 8 election, Fetterman was more contemplative about the incident. While he still defends his split-second reaction — which he said was driven by a feeling of responsibility as mayor to keep residents safe after hearing gun shots, he also said that he has a better understanding of the impact of racial profiling. As lieutenant governor, he has made equity in criminal justice a priority.

Fetterman also shows signs of recovery from the stroke he suffered May 13 — four days before the Pennsylvania primary. Fetterman’s continued recovery should not be inherently disqualifying. A few sitting U.S. senators, including Ray Lujan and Chris Van Hollen, have successfully served after suffering strokes. Arlen Specter, the former Philadelphia district attorney and Pennsylvania’s longest-serving U.S. senator, continued to hold office for 18 years after brain surgery in 1993.

There is no reason Fetterman cannot serve effectively after his stroke.

There is no reason Fetterman cannot serve effectively after his stroke. Fetterman said that one of the most significant challenges of his recovery involves auditory processing — a condition in which his comprehension of certain words and phrases is occasionally delayed. During interviews, Fetterman does often take a few seconds to ensure that he has understood a questioner correctly — and he may take a couple of moments more to collect his thoughts and find the right words — but that should not significantly impair him from performing in his role as a senator. Fetterman knows what his values are and is capable of communicating them.

[OCS: FEDDERMAN SHOWS NO SIGNS OF RECOVERING ENOUGH TO SERVE IN THE SENATE.]

Oz’s resumé is also notably devoid of any significant record of public service.

[OCS: Fetterman’s public service has been a joke. From what we have seen of politicians,  public service does not seem to be a plus!]

During his senatorial campaign, Fetterman has talked expansively about embracing a role as “the 51st vote” Democrats need to pass key legislation, but his contributions would extend far beyond being a reliable plus-one for his party. As a result of his time as lieutenant governor and mayor of Braddock, Fetterman would bring to Washington a ground-level appreciation for the challenges facing Pennsylvanians, and he understands the importance of advocating for the state through federal legislation.

[OCS: FETTERMAN’S SOLE FUNCTION IS A VOTING BODY IN A SENATE SEAT!]

An experienced public servant, Fetterman has an abundance of the kind of values and priorities that are needed to move the nation forward — and to earn this board’s support. The Inquirer endorses John Fetterman for U.S. Senate.

This is a non-starter if you can’t follow the debate...

Video: NBC News Admits Democrat John Fetterman Can’t Understand Speech, Needs Transcripts

Shocking video clips from an interview between NBC News’ Dasha Burns and John Fetterman show the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate needing assistance from a transcription program to understand the questions being asked of him face-to-face by the reporter.

The videos call into question Fetterman’s mental capabilities following a stroke he suffered back in May.

NBC anchor Lester Holt introduced the segment in which he points out that Burns’ interview with Fetterman “was not a typical candidate interview.”

“No Lester, because of his stroke Fetterman’s campaign required closed captioning technology for this interview to essentially read our questions as we asked them,” she responded.

“And Lester, in small talk before the interview without captioning, it wasn’t clear he was understanding our conversation.”

And yet, somehow this Senate race is close. <Source>

Bottom line…

This Philadelphia Inquirer endorsement of a mentally-impaired John Fetterman over his capable and accomplished opponent Mehmet Oz proves that progressive communist democrat party politics supersedes journalistic integrity, common sense, and patriotic love of one’s nation.

If Philadelphians elect John Fetterman simply to put a progressive communist democrat body in a Senate seat, we are all screwed.

TULSI GABBARD: DEMOCRAT TROJAN HORSE SITS OUTSIDE THE GOP PARTY HQ

Tulsi

Once again, the pro-Democrat establishment wing seems ready to compromise core constitutional conservative principles to be liked …

I wonder if former Representative Tulsi Gabbard, often confused for Nikki Hailey, is a wolf in sheep’s clothes?

In 2015 she was named as one of the World Economic Forum’s ‘Young Global Leaders’, joining the other young liberals including Emmanuel Macron, Jacinda Ardern and Justin Trudeau, all of whom graduated from Klaus Schwab’s class to become modern-day left-wing authoritarians. She openly acknowledged the “honor” in a Tweet. “ @wef  I'm honored to be selected as 2015 @YGLvoices - representing #Hawaii amongst leaders from around the world.”

Considering her appearances on Fox News and other self-described conservative outlets, she appears to be playing the part of a conservative Republican. Acting, stagecraft, and costuming?

Because she criticizes the Democrats does not mean anything.

The progressive communist democrat propagandists in the media are crafting a scenario and a narrative…

Tulsi Gabbard's Dem Decision Fuels Speculation She's Trump's VP Choice

Former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard's decision to leave the Democratic Party has some wondering whether she could be former President Donald Trump's future running mate.

Gabbard announced on Tuesday in a video shared to social media that she was no longer a Democrat, and said the party was being led by "an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness" who promote "anti-white racism." She went on to say that she was leaving the party to become an Independent in part because she believed Democrats were bringing the world "ever closer to nuclear war."

Many were not surprised by Gabbard's move away from the Democratic Party. The former congresswoman has repeatedly promoted anti-LGBT positions, taken a pro-Russia stance on the war in Ukraine that is more in line with the American far-right than the left and advocated against "woke" culture since the end of her failed 2020 presidential campaign as a Democrat. <Source>

[Let us not forget that Trump was a registered Democrat from August 2001 through September 2009 and is known to be transactional, doing what seems best for Trump in the moment regardless of the dodgy character of those with whom he deals.

In a perfect Democrat scenario, Gabbard becomes the Vice President and the rapidly aging Trump is removed from office, either by the 25th Amendment for incapacitation or impeachment.

Trump is known to forgive easily if the person is useful and deferential. (“Gabbard voted ‘present’ when the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Trump in December 2019, saying, ‘I could not in good conscience vote against impeachment because I believe President Trump is guilty of wrongdoing. I could not in good conscience vote for impeachment because removal of a sitting president must not be the culmination of a partisan process, fueled by tribal animosities that have so gravely divided our country.”] 

Tulsi Gabbard to campaign for GOP after leaving Democratic Party

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and 2020 presidential candidate has revealed she will hit the campaign trail for several GOP candidates, one day after announcing she was leaving the Democratic Party.

Gabbard, a former Democratic House representative for Hawaii, said Wednesday she will campaign for Republican New Hampshire Senate nominee Don Bolduc. She also endorsed Trump-backed Republican candidate Joe Kent, who is in a tight race for a southwestern Washington House seat.

On Tuesday, Gabbard announced in a video posted to social media that she was leaving the Democratic Party and urged "fellow common sense independent-minded Democrats" to do the same.

"I can no longer remain in today's Democratic Party. It's now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoking anti-white racism," Gabbard said on the first episode of her new podcast, "The Tulsi Gabbard Show." <Source>

[OCS: Just announcing that you are leaving the Democratic Party” means nothing in terms of character and fundamental ideology. We have seen a number of high profile individuals cross party lines to gain an electoral advantage. Remember former Democrats Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman, Michael Bloomberg, Condoleezza Rice, and numerous others? It’s mostly about political advantage and jumping the Democrat “waiting for their turn” line.]

Bottom line…

Tulsi Gabbard is not a constitutional conservative or even close to being an acceptable GOP candidate.

While she is telegenic, well-spoken, intersectional (woman, non-White), politically experienced, a veteran of the military, and appears to be a polite, GOP-accepting individual, she is also …

  • a socialist,
  • advocates single-payer healthcare,
  • anti-gun,
  • a globalist,
  • pro-Russia, (“This war and suffering could have easily been avoided if Biden Admin/NATO had simply acknowledged Russia’s legitimate security concerns regarding Ukraine’s becoming a member of NATO, which would mean US/NATO forces right on Russia’s border.”)
  • free college education and pre-K education,
  • believes the global warming hoax,
  • and she claims her beliefs are evolving.

We are screwed when the GOP mistakes polite tolerance of the GOP "opposition” as an indication of core conservative beliefs. 

It would be even worse if she runs as an independent to split the Republican vote to give the Democrats the win.

Beware of the Democrat Trojan Horse.
