UNBELIEVABLE: PROGRESSIVE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS WANT A PANDEMIC AMNESTY

Viral-bullshit

The truth about the funding of man-made pathogens, the origins of the global pandemic, the zero-science myths surrounding COVID-19-related political positioning, and the shocking truth that American scientists and politicians may have engaged in mass deception, mass murder, and weakening American resilience to disease and other biological agents is coming to light.

So now the progressive communist democrats are seeking a “pandemic amnesty” so they are not held accountable for what might be termed a preventable man-made disaster.

Emily Oster, a progressive academic writing in the radical left publication, The Atlantic, puts forth the proposition…

LET’S DECLARE A PANDEMIC AMNESTY

We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.

In April 2020, with nothing else to do, my family took an enormous number of hikes. We all wore cloth masks that I had made myself. We had a family hand signal, which the person in the front would use if someone was approaching on the trail and we needed to put on our masks. Once, when another child got too close to my then-4-year-old son on a bridge, he yelled at her “SOCIAL DISTANCING!”

These precautions were totally misguided. In April 2020, no one got the coronavirus from passing someone else hiking. Outdoor transmission was vanishingly rare. Our cloth masks made out of old bandanas wouldn’t have done anything, anyway. But the thing is: We didn’t know.

[OCS:  Pleading ignorance is not an excuse for harming a significant segment of the population by presenting credentialed individuals who purported to know “the science” and spoke with certainty – not admitting their lack of knowledge and lying to the American public.

If only Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Deborah Leah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, and Robert Redfield. the virologist who served as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the truth – hundreds of thousands of lives would have been saved.

Likewise, if there had been no political interference with cheap therapeutics that appeared to work, many more lives would have been saved.

And then there is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of senior citizens with his insane public policy of placing infected individuals in the middle of those most vulnerable to the virus – senior citizens sequestered in community living facilities without adequate safeguards against infectious diseases.]

I have been reflecting on this lack of knowledge thanks to a class I’m co-teaching at Brown University on COVID. We’ve spent several lectures reliving the first year of the pandemic, discussing the many important choices we had to make under conditions of tremendous uncertainty.

Some of these choices turned out better than others. To take an example close to my own work, there is an emerging (if not universal) consensus that schools in the U.S. were closed for too long: The health risks of in-school spread were relatively low, whereas the costs to students’ well-being and educational progress were high. The latest figures on learning loss are alarming. But in spring and summer 2020, we had only glimmers of information. Reasonable people—people who cared about children and teachers—advocated on both sides of the reopening debate.

[OCS: I call bullshit! The teachers’ unions were dictating public policies to politicians – milking the system, as it were. Science was subservient to big-money politics. Most culpable was Randi Weingarten, the American Federation of Teachers president.]

Another example: When the vaccines came out, we lacked definitive data on the relative efficacies of the Johnson & Johnson shot versus the mRNA options from Pfizer and Moderna. The mRNA vaccines have won out. But at the time, many people in public health were either neutral or expressed a J&J preference. This misstep wasn’t nefarious. It was the result of uncertainty.

[OCS: The most significant unknowable was a vaccine's long-term side effects and efficacy, as there is no way to simulate the passage of time. However, the known data was sequestered and heavily guarded against public exposure and debate. When key data became known, equally credible and experienced medical and scientific practitioners who dissented were silenced by the regime – an effort that is ongoing today.]

Obviously some people intended to mislead and made wildly irresponsible claims. Remember when the public-health community had to spend a lot of time and resources urging Americans not to inject themselves with bleach? That was bad. Misinformation was, and remains, a huge problem. But most errors were made by people who were working in earnest for the good of society.

[OCS: You cannot claim ignorance and then point to other data and claim misinformation or disinformation. Labeling something misinformation without open debate is little more than a justification for censorship and canceling the platform access to dissenting voices – gutting the first precept of scientific inquiry – skepticism.

As for people with good intentions – they were ignorant that they were paving the road to hell and violating the prime directive of medicine: first, do no harm.]

Given the amount of uncertainty, almost every position was taken on every topic. And on every topic, someone was eventually proved right, and someone else was proved wrong. In some instances, the right people were right for the wrong reasons. In other instances, they had a prescient understanding of the available information.

[OCS: Where were the leadership's admissions of faulty methodologies and assumptions? Those who were eventually proven right still suffered reputational damage and continued to be shunned, while the media propagandists still featured those who are wrong.]

The people who got it right, for whatever reason, may want to gloat. Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts. All of this gloating and defensiveness continues to gobble up a lot of social energy and to drive the culture wars, especially on the internet. These discussions are heated, unpleasant and, ultimately, unproductive. In the face of so much uncertainty, getting something right had a hefty element of luck. And, similarly, getting something wrong wasn’t a moral failing. Treating pandemic choices as a scorecard on which some people racked up more points than others is preventing us from moving forward.

We have to put these fights aside and declare a pandemic amnesty. We can leave out the willful purveyors of actual misinformation while forgiving the hard calls that people had no choice but to make with imperfect knowledge. Los Angeles County closed its beaches in summer 2020. Ex post facto, this makes no more sense than my family’s masked hiking trips. But we need to learn from our mistakes and then let them go. We need to forgive the attacks, too. Because I thought schools should reopen and argued that kids as a group were not at high risk, I was called a “teacher killer” and a “génocidaire.” It wasn’t pleasant, but feelings were high. And I certainly don’t need to dissect and rehash that time for the rest of my days.

[OCS: Bullshit. There should be consequences, including fines, penalties, including prison, for those who willfully obstructed or censored information critical to the understanding of the risks involved with newly-engineered vaccines and the use of effective low-cost therapeutics..]

Moving on is crucial now, because the pandemic created many problems that we still need to solve.

[OCS: Move on, is the mantra of the progressive communist democrats when they have been caught red-handed in malfeasant (Misconduct or wrongdoing, especially by a public official.) activities or criminal actions.]

The standard saying is that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. But dwelling on the mistakes of history can lead to a repetitive doom loop as well. Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward.

[OCS: Spoken like a true progressive communist democrat believer who wants to erase history and the wrongdoing of the perpetrators.]

Are you willing to forgive and forget?

Dr. (MD, MPH) Vinay Prasad's List of offenses

  • Discouraging people from outdoor activities
  • Lying about the evidence for cloth masks in community settings
  • Lying about the evidence for masking outside
  • Closing beaches
  • Pouring sand into outdoor skateboard parks
  • Not running any randomized control trials of masking in high-income nations

  • Culling animals
  • Using the police state to enforce lockdown
  • Not letting people hold their father's hand when their father dies.
  • Not letting people visit their mother when she's hospitalized
  • Closing schools -- But just for poor kids who go to public school, rich kids get to go to school
  • Making testing companies rich by recommending unproven testing
  • Inventing a 6-ft distance
  • Enforcing stupid distances to make it hard to run school buses
  • Lowering the regulatory bar for vaccines
  • Lying about myocarditis after the safety signal is found in Israel
  • Never making drug companies test lower doses in young men. Doing absolutely nothing to mitigate the risk.
  • Repeatedly lying about it so you can force boosters on people who've already had covid, despite no evidence, and lacking biological rationale
  • Continuing the emergency state long after it's appropriate.
  • Continuing emergency powers when the emergency has passed
  • Vaccine passports
  • Discriminating against people by vaccine status.
  • Preventing Novak Djokovic from competing in US Open
  • Making children wear masks to go to the zoo in California in November 2022 to protect the animals who shouldn't be close to the kids anyway, and they're all outside anyway
  • Firing healthcare workers to the point that no one wants to work in healthcare anymore, and it is hard to staff
  • Discouraging people from getting routine health care.
  • Publishing propaganda in MMWR to justify your broken agenda
  • Funding the Ecotrust dude after all the issues about where the virus is coming from.
  • Spending 10 billion on Paxlovid without randomized data in vaccinated people
  • Spending billions on Remdesivir when it doesn't do s***.
  • Spending so much money on useless tests, that faculty members quit universities to go run testing companies selling said useless tests
  • Using useless tests to keep kids out of school.
  • Inventing unproven Quarantine policies to keep kids out of school
  • Closing Palo Alto schools, but leasing the space, so parents can drop their kids off in zoom school, where an instructor who's an underpaid worker opens a laptop so they can take a class with their teacher.

And doing all this without running a single cluster randomized trial to figure out anything. To just do it on a whim without data.

Bottom line…

I am not willing to forgive or forget the politicization of the pandemic by the progressive communist democrats who took advantage of the pandemic to make a bid to turn America into an authoritarian, one-party nation.

Likewise, I am aware that we appear to be suffering a current pandemic among the vaccinated and a disproportionate share of life-threatening side effects.

We are so screwed.

YOUTUBE TO CONTROL HEALTH INFORMATION

WHOTUBE-1

The basics…

(1)    Medicine is part science and part art, where the vagaries of human physiology and physical condition can greatly influence diagnosis, treatment protocols, and outcomes.

(2)    What works for one individual may not work for another. Best practices demand medical treatments be vetted by your personal physician, who knows you, your family history, your present condition, and any confirmatory tests that may be required before starting a treatment protocol.

(3)    Physicians and Nurse Practitioners cannot know everything and should have reliable sources of information to inform their diagnoses and treatment protocols.

(4)    Competence is not measured by physical appearance, a pleasant personality, or the ability to speak convincingly with forceful certitude and assurance.

(5)    Credentials or even experience is not an indicator of competence. Competence is measured by outcomes, bearing in mind that certain medical practitioners in specialties dealing with critically ill or terminal patients may require different metrics from those who practice family medicine.

(6)    Emergency medical care is designed to stabilize that patient, so they can be handed off to other health practitioners for additional care.

(7)    Healthcare professionals may not operate with the best interests of their patients in mind but may be bound by the rules and regulations of their practice or the facility within which they practice.

(8)    Misinformation is false, misleading, or out-of-context content shared without the intent to deceive.

(9)    Disinformation is purposefully false or misleading content shared with an intent to deceive and cause harm.

(10)  The greatest source of medical disinformation may come from the government, credentialed practitioners, prestigious institutions, and non-governmental organizations influenced by financial incentives or political ideology.

(11)   Beware of medical professionals who are providing information on subject matters outside the scope of their specialty and practice.

YouTube plans to fight healthcare misinformation and disinformation with a certification program…

Creators who plan to offer healthcare commentary on YouTube must be certified and follows guidelines set by the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, the National Academy of Medicine, and the World Health Organization.

Of course, the progressive communist democrats on YouTube appear to be purposely ignoring the fact that the greatest sources of health-related misinformation and disinformation are the government and credentialed medical personnel.

In the case of the global pandemic, we saw the Communist Chinese government, the probable source of the SARS-CoV-2 from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, openly lie about the threat, allowing the virus to spread globally, and subvert the World Health Organization whose communist leader, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, was in debt to the Chinese government.

Closer to home, we saw Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, lie and dissemble over the financing of “gain of function” grants that led to the deadly research that created the virus.

Beware, YouTube’s stamp of approval or certification is worthless… 

Introducing new ways to help you find answers to your health questions

At YouTube, we’re working to make it easier for people to find authoritative information to help answer their questions, and we’re putting health professionals at the core of our efforts to connect people with helpful content. I’ve spent my career trying to advance the ways that we can better reach people with the information they need to make the right health choices for themselves and their families, and I’ve had a front row seat as our approaches evolved from pamphlets handed out at doctor’s offices to online patient portals and telemedicine.

YouTube will now let medical professionals apply for additional verification.

Information panels providing health source context

When you watch a YouTube video on a health-related topic, you may notice an information panel providing context on the source underneath the video. This panel is meant to give you more info to help you better understand the sources of health content that you find and watch on YouTube.

To identify which health sources are eligible for this feature, we started in the United States by using a set of principles and definitions developed by a panel of experts convened by the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), and reviewed by the American Public Health Association (APHA). NAM is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization that brings together top experts in health, medicine, and biomedical science to provide unbiased, evidence-based guidance about health and science. APHA is a professional association of public health practitioners that advocates for public health issues and policies backed by science.

As we expand outside of the United States, we’re referencing the work done by the World Health Organization (WHO), to inform global use of these principles. The WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for international public health. We may also reference work done by other agencies, such as in the UK.

In July 2021, the expert panel convened by NAM published foundational principles that can be used to guide identification of potentially credible online health sources in a paper called Identifying Credible Sources of Health Information in Social Media: Principles and Attributes. The WHO and NAM recently convened a meeting of interdisciplinary experts from around the world to review and validate these principles for global application. The principles for authoritative health sources in these papers include that sources should be science-based, objective, transparent, and accountable.

As we begin to adopt principles for authoritative health sources, we are starting with organizations with pre-existing, standardized vetting mechanisms such as:

Healthcare organizations
Educational institutions
Public health departments
Government organizations

Vetting mechanisms include accreditation, academic journal indexing, and government accountability rules. 

Censorship is everywhere…

Leaked Documents Outline DHS’s Plans to Police Disinformation

The Department of Homeland Security is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, an investigation by The Intercept has found. Years of internal DHS memos, emails, and documents — obtained via leaks and an ongoing lawsuit, as well as public documents — illustrate an expansive effort by the agency to influence tech platforms.

The work, much of which remains unknown to the American public, came into clearer view earlier this year when DHS announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board”: a panel designed to police misinformation (false information spread unintentionally), disinformation (false information spread intentionally), and malinformation (factual information shared, typically out of context, with harmful intent) that allegedly threatens U.S. interests. While the board was widely ridiculed, immediately scaled back, and then shut down within a few months, other initiatives are underway as DHS pivots to monitoring social media now that its original mandate — the war on terror — has been wound down. <Read More>

Finland Exposes Massive Covid Reporting Scandal: Nearly 40% of 'Covid Deaths' Were Fraudulent

Finland has become one of the first countries to uncover evidence that state agencies around the world committed fraud in their Covid deaths reporting during the pandemic.

The blockbuster report sheds light on how public health agencies around the world overhyped 'Covid-related deaths' in order to drive mass hysteria.

According to Sirkka Goebeler, chief specialist at the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), Covid-19 has not been the actual cause of death in up to 40 percent of fatalities attributed to the illness in Finland. As a result, they will not end up in Statistics Finland's official data as coronavirus deaths.

As the Finnish report states, "Goebeler's unit examines all Finnish death certificates before they are forwarded to the state statistics bureau. The unit focuses on coronavirus-related death certificates where the attending physician has listed Covid as either the primary or a contributing cause of death."

"The THL tally of Covid-related deaths stood at 6,407 on Tuesday – but that figure includes all deaths that have occurred within 30 days of a positive coronavirus test," the report continued. "According to Goebeler, in nearly 4,000 of these cases, Covid is listed as the primary or immediate cause of death. In almost 1,600 cases, coronavirus is listed as a contributing factor."

"In approximately 900 cases initially recorded as Covid-related deaths, the actual death certificates do not contain any indication of coronavirus infection at all," the report added.

The Finnish report further substantiates the complaints of statistical analysts and public health experts that there was a failure to differentiate between deaths from Covid and deaths with Covid during the pandemic. There is evidence that in the United States, the conflation was deliberate in order to drive and perpetuate a state of public alarm,<Source>

Let us not forget Medical facilities were financially incentivized to classify admissions and deaths as COIVD-related by additional reimbursements. Even more, if the patient was intubated and on a respirator.

Bottom line…

Until the government entered a public-private relationship with the social media platform operators to censor information that did not support the regime’s narrative and to cancel dissident sources of information,  YouTube contained some of the most egregious medical advice targeted at those suffering from debilitating conditions and offering relief by purchasing expensive supplements with only trace amounts of active therapeutic drugs.

Now we see full-blown governmental censorship as they try to bypass the Constitution’s First Amendment protections on free speech by deputizing or coercing private companies.  And YouTube appears to be willing to support the regime’s narrative and announcers.

Creators looking to escape YouTube censorship, consider Rumble.com as a growing free speech platform.

We are so screwed.

THE PROGRESSIVES ADMIT TO AN ELECTION CONSPIRACY

The progressive communist democrats have become so brazen and cocksure of their position that they openly admit the 2020 election conspiracy was not a right-wing conspiracy…

Time_logo

The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election

[OCS: They admit it was a real, not imaginary, conspiracy.]

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

[OCS: Another reason you cannot trust the globalists at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a lobbying group that places the interests of big business before the needs of the nation it purports to serve.

It should be noted that the progressive communist democrats were behind the destructive racial-justice protests used to disrupt a national election and whose agitators and activists have never been held accountable for their criminal actions by a progressive-run judicial system.

There was no indication of any assault on democracy other than talking points crafted by progressive communist democrats and promoted by the progressive propagandists in the mainstream media.]

The handshake between business and labor was just one component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President. Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors. The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a Trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding.

[OCS: There is sworn testimony and documentary evidence that the progressive communist democrats committed criminal acts to subvert the 2020 election.

The attempt has been labeled cross-partisan because establishment RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) like Mitt Romney joined their ideological enemies to thwart the Trump campaign and ensure that the establishment “business as usual” Republicans remained in control of the party. 

The so-called conservatives involved were those like Bill Kristol, who were proven to be establishment types who masked the intent to regain their lost influence behind a conservative label.]

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws [OCS: Clinton attorney Marc Elias spearheaded this corrupt effort that bypassed state legislatures and resulted in illegal actions] and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding [OCS: Zuckerbucks.]. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits [OCS: Voter-ID laws to protect the integrity of elections.] , recruited armies of poll workers [OCS: Some willing to violate the law and subvert legal systems and procedures.] and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. [OCS: A notorious corrupt system easily corrupted and abused with few safeguards.]

They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation [OCS: Censorship.] and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. [OCS: Shadow-banning dissenting content and reducing “reach.”] 

They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks [OCS: Conditioning the  battlefield to accept election fraud.] preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories [OCS: Now proven mostly true.] and false claims of victory from getting more traction.

[OCS: Had the progressive communist democrats not suppressed the evidence of Joe Biden’s corruption and Hunter Biden’s laptop, polling indicates that Trump would have overwhelmingly one. Given the election shenanigans and the false-flag operation on January 6 to keep states from decertifying their corrupted or illegal vote tallies and seating alternate electors to cast legitimate electoral votes for Trump, the victory righteously belonged to Trump.]

After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. “The untold story of the election is the thousands of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy at its very foundation,” says Norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama Administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats to the board of the Voter Protection Program.

[OCS: Election integrity issues were not heard in court as most cases were tossed for other reasons: lack of standing, time-barred, or no legal remedy available under the Constitution or existing laws.]

This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election, based on access to the group’s inner workings, never-before-seen documents and interviews with dozens of those involved from across the political spectrum. It is the story of an unprecedented, creative and determined campaign whose success also reveals how close the nation came to disaster.

[OCS: Truth be told, the nation did suffer a constitutional disaster as an election was successfully subverted and a path to future electoral subversion established.]

Every attempt to interfere with the proper outcome of the election was defeated,” says Ian Bassin, co-founder of Protect Democracy, a nonpartisan rule-of-law advocacy group. “But it’s massively important for the country to understand that it didn’t happen accidentally. The system didn’t work magically. Democracy is not self-executing.”

[OCS: The truth is that every attempt to maintain election integrity was defeated by a cabal of un-American evildoers who could best be described as progressive communist democrats. We are not a democracy governed by mob rule but a constitutional republic.]

That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.

[OCS: Endures as a European-style socialist/communist system ruled by authoritarian elites?]

<Read the entire saga in full and in context in the February 15, 2021, issue of TIME or online.>

Bottom line…

OCS-FLAG

Stories like this serve as a cautionary tale and playbook for thwarting future corrupt challenges to our America, our Constitution, and our electoral system.

Get off your ass and vote – considering those who have given their lives defending this nation; it’s the least you can do to preserve our way of life, our standard of living, and the hopes of future generations.

We are so screwed.

ONE WEEK TO MID-TERM ELECTION: THE GREATER TRUTH ABOUT THE PAUL PELOSI ATTACK

VoteThe progressive communist democrats are struggling to censor any criticism of the disastrous past two years that saw rampant inflation affect food, fuel, and everything else, the destruction of our energy sector and high-paying jobs, and restrictions on your freedoms – including the freedom of choice.

What Nancy Pelosi is hiding?

Forget the salacious details and speculation about Paul Pelosi’s behavior and lifestyle. The broader narrative is damning. The inescapable truth is that an illegal alien who appears to be a mentally ill drug addict was wandering around the city unchecked late at night. He was able to enter a private home in a relatively wealthy neighborhood and violently attack another person.

The greater truth is this is not an unusual occurrence on the streets of San Francisco and demonstrates an atmosphere of homelessness, vagrancy, unchecked drug use, and general lawlessness. All in a city that condemns law enforcement and cares more about the criminals than their victims. These are all conditions Nancy Pelosi promoted.

Even worse, most of us would not have experienced a two-minute police response, and our violent assailant would have been back on the street within hours. 

This is the progressive communist democrat vision for America. 

This is what the progressive communist democrats in the media want to suppress before the mid-term elections.

Bottom line...

Vote as if your life depends on your choices.

We are so screwed.

-- Steve

Caveat: It is still possible that newly discovered information about Pelosi's lifestyle and the alleged assailant's participation will change after the election.

PELOSI ATTACK: MEDIA-CREATED CRAZINESS?

FBI-PELOSI

Before the Obama Administration, the 2020 election, the Democrat's January 6th machinations, and the political prisoners being held in the Washington D.C. gulag awaiting trial – my first thought would NOT have been: is this a media-staged October surprise or a false flag operation of the FBI before the mid-terms!

Everything we know about Paul Pelosi's attack: What was behind the 'targeted' assault?

Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul was "violently assaulted" during a break-in at his San Francisco home early on Friday, authorities say.

San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott named the suspect as David Depape at a press conference on Friday afternoon.

He will be charged with attempted homicide, elder abuse and burglary, Mr. Scott said.

[OCS: In San Francisco, one wonders if he will be given a ticket and released back into the community?]

He said police officers were called to the house and allegedly witnessed the intruder assault Mr. Pelosi with a hammer.

Mr. Pelosi has been taken to hospital where he is expected to make a full recovery,  the House Speaker's spokesperson Drew Hammill said in a statement.

Ms. Pelosi was not home at the time, the spokesman said.

[OCS: Convenient? Was she in Washington working on her next conspiracy charges or dealing with the January 6th charade?]

The Associated Press reported that the couple's home was specifically targeted.

Before the assault occurred, the intruder reportedly confronted Mr. Pelosi shouting: "Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?"

"The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time," Mr. Hammill added.

While it's unclear what the assailant's motive is, national security officials and law enforcement have been warning for some time about an increased threat of political violence leading into the midterm elections.

[OCS: Back to the narrative.]

In the wake of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, Nicholas John Roske was arrested near the home of Brett Kavanaugh in June armed with a handgun, a knife, pepper spray, and burglary tools. <Source>

[OCS: Why didn't the DOJ or FBI deal with the illegal protesters threatening the conservative Supreme Court Justices?]

How long before they blame Donald Trump?

‘The Climate is Violence’: Bob Woodward Says Trump Partially to Blame For Paul Pelosi Attack

Journalist and author Bob Woodward laid the blame for the Friday attack on Paul Pelosi at the feet of the political climate he said was created in part by former President Donald Trump.

While discussing the violence on her daily show, MSNBC’s Katy Tur welcomed Woodward to discuss his thoughts on the shocking burglary and assault. Woodward quickly invoked the name of the former president:

Obviously, awful, awful act. And you can’t pre-judge who this person is who did it, what the motive is, but I think it’s reasonable and necessary to step back and ask the question, what sort of climate of violence has been created in this country? And the answer, and you could put at the tapes, as Donald Trump as candidate and president urging people on, in a violent way.

[OCS: Yes. You can pre-judge this dirtbag. He is a criminal, caught in the act, who should be locked away for a long time no matter if his mom was an alcoholic, drug-addict, and an abusive parent.]

And now, you can’t trace – it would be unfair to trace that to this act – but we create a climate as politicians, citizens, everyone, the press, also, and the climate is violence.

Woodward said he did not know how to unite a country largely divided along ideological lines, but said, “Somebody needs to remedy this.”

“I don’t know who it’s going to be or how it’s done,” Woodward added. “But what happened to Paul Pelosi is abhorrent and it stems, or it is made more possible, by this climate that has been created.”

Earlier this week, Woodward described Trump as a “threat to democracy.” <Source>

Pelosi home invasion comes after years of Trump targeting the Speaker

Chris Hayes: “Political violence, intimidation, menace has been cultivated and encouraged by the ex-president for years to his followers. And that threat of violence has been specifically directed at Nancy Pelosi for years now.” <Source>

Unanswered questions regarding the situation that have been confused or conflated by the media...

(1)  How did the alleged perpetrator get into the house, which is presumed to have internal and external security measures?

(2)  Who made the welfare-check telephone call before the 911-call?

(3)  Why didn't Pelosi lock himself in the bathroom when he was isolated and called 911?

(4)  Who owns the hammer? Where did it come from?

(5)   Where are the 911-call and body-cam footage since the actual attack occurred with police present?

(6)   Who opened the door for the police? Why is the glass from the broken back door outside the door rather than inside, where it would fall when the door was broken? Or were they reinforced panes that rebound when they are struck and shatter?

(7)   Were both men in their underwear? Was the assailant's clothes in the house or did he arrive in his underwear early in the morning? Where were the clothes found if he undressed in the house?

(8)   Was the assailant a male prostitute?

(9)   Why are the Pelosi's refusing to release security footage? Why are the police refusing to release evidence that would curtail media speculation?

(10)  Why is the media spinning a MAGA motive when it appears that the assailant is a far-left hippy or worse?

Bottom line...

Like the murky circumstances surrounding the Pelosi DUI incident where there was an alleged unknown person on the scene -- possibly a passenger in Paul Pelosi's vehicle, we are getting the police-media rope-e-dope again in this crime.

Wait and see -- especially after the mid-terms.

With corrupt and incurious media, we are so screwed.

JULIA BROWNLEY IS A YOUNGER VERSION OF NANCY PELOSI AND WRONG ON MOST EVERYTHING!

[images not displaying correctly -- hosting issues]

Julia Brownley -- part of the problem, not the solution...

Congresswoman Julia Brownley, endorsed by the usual progressive communist democrat suspects, is trying to smear her opponent by claiming Matt Jacobs, a former federal prosecutor who knows the law, "believes that the Supreme Court correctly decided Roe v. Wade."

This clearly demonstrates that Brownley is corrupt, ignorant, and parrots the Democrat's "kill the babies" narrative.

(1) Roe v. Wade was improperly decided the first time as there is no constitutional right to have an abortion or have that abortion funded by a mandate in the enumerated powers that limit the federal government's powers.

(2) More appropriately, the issue belongs either to the State or "We the People."

(3) The Supreme Court has made bad decisions in the past, and it is up to the court to correct these misguided rulings. Jacobs agrees with the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade as constitutionally sound.

(4) Brownley is little more than a Pelosi stooge.

Jacobs...

Jacobs, 38, is the grandson of Holocaust survivors. He was born and raised in Thousand Oaks and now lives in Westlake Village. He spent more than six years as a federal prosecutor in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, part of it working on anti-terrorism cases, including an al-Qaeda operative convicted of being part of a 2003 Afghanistan attack that killed two U.S. servicemen.

He's supported by Republicans, including House party leader Kevin McCarthy and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. He characterized Brownley as "far left," targeting a voting record that has consistently been in sync with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

"We’ve been represented by someone who literally votes 100% of the time with her leadership," he said. <Source>  

Brownley...

Brownley's endorsements include the California Labor Federation, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the California Teachers Association. She characterized herself as a moderate who votes for her district's best interests. She said she votes in sync with party leaders because she shares many of their values.

"I think calling me a liberal is what he wants people to believe," she said. <Source>

She is not a liberal but a full-blown radical progressive communist democrat and Pelosi stooge.

Bottom line...

I did not vote for Brownley, and I respectfully suggest you do the same!

A SCARY 2022 HALLOWEEN MASK

Few individuals have wreaked as much havoc on Congress and the nation as the corrupt House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with her continual House rules violations, proxy voting, sham committees, and phony impeachments.

She is genuinely the wicked witch from the West who traveled East to damage and destroy our nation with her San Francisco progressive communist democrat ideology.

Pelosi-haloween

We are so screwed.
