TRUMP IS SCREWING UP AGAIN

DeSantis is clearly not a loser...

TRUMP-DESANTIS-WEDDING

Once again, we find Donald Trump catering to his ego while ignoring the reality surrounding him…

At a time when Trump should be courting the disaffected Democrats and independents to create a winning coalition, he chooses to dump on DeSantis rather than the ongoing Democrat disaster surrounding him.

How is he not hammering home the corruption of Joe Biden, which clearly meets the Constitutional requirement of impeachment based on bribery? Or the many failures of Biden’s cabinet-level officials? Or the destruction of the Constitution and Rule of Law in America? All without making it all about Donald Trump and engaging in sophomoric name-calling.

Is Trump willing to put the nation ahead of his ego?

An example of Trump’s over-the-top gaslighting can be found in a recent video where Trump implies DeSantis is both a loser and an establishment candidate…

TRUMP: "The very stupid and little respected China-loving Club for No Growth, which has been backing Ron DeSanctimonious as his poll numbers has been absolutely crashing, has just spent some of the RINO money they have accumulated on an ad campaign hoping to counter the fact that DeSanctis, just off the worst presidential launch in history, opted three times to cut and destroy Social Security, even lifting the minimum age to 70 years old.

He also voted to cut Medicare and institute a 23% national sales tax, which will hit our country hard.

Ron has always been a loser.

In fact, he was going to lose the election in record numbers until I endorsed him, so it was an artificial win. In any event Club for No Growth, they were with me and they won. When I cut off ties to them, they continuously lose. Let’s keep it that way."

How can Trump continue to portray himself as a “winner” and deny reality by claiming Ron DeSantis is a “loser?"

  • Ron DeSantis is a Harvard-trained lawyer who served in the Navy (Bronze Star) as a legal adviser to the SEALs in Iraq.
  • Ron DeSantis has not lost a political race, winning in 2012, 2014, 2016 (Congress), and 2018 and 2022 as Governor of Florida.
  • Ron DeSantis has done an admirable job governing Florida.
  • He is not “lockdown Ron,” especially compared to Cuomo's New York situation.
  • Trump lost to a mentally impaired candidate in 2020, costing the party significant votes and a Senate majority with his antics in two-winnable races in Georgia. His endorsements produced mixed results.
  • Trump continues to ignore fiscal responsibility and attacks DeSantis from the left on entitlement reform.
  • Trump refuses to support ballot harvesting, which disadvantages the GOP. Just as asinine as asking his supporters not to use mail-in ballots in 2020.
  • Trump's record of selecting personnel and candidates to endorse is abysmal.
  • Trump refuses to spend money on a ground game for 2024.
  • Trump’s plan must be yelling, as there does not seem to be any other plan other than hoping circumstances will produce a Trump victory.

On paper, Trump is the clear loser, not Ron DeSantis. However, even when Trump is significantly ahead in primary polls, he continues to attack DeSantis instead of attacking the corrupt Biden and his failing administration.

Bottom line…

Trump appears to have a solid base within the Republican Party. Unfortunately, this base seems to top out at an estimated 35-40 percent, allowing him to win the primary with a plurality. But he also appears to lack headroom, the margin that would enable him to win the general election by converting a swing portion of disaffected democrats and independents.

So, the real question is, will America descend so low under the progressive communist democrats that a significant majority of disillusioned and disgusted Americans will vote for the GOP to capture the presidency and generate an unassailable margin of victory in the House and Senate?

Will Trump feed this dystopian view of America by highlighting the dysfunction of the progressive communist democrats, or will he continue to attack Ron “DeSanctimonious” and gaslight Americans with his ego-driven bullshit?

We are so screwed.

Exploring Extreme Environments: A Quest for Knowledge versus the Thrill-Seeking Adventurism of Rich Patrons

Rest in Peace...

Oceangate-header

While we acknowledge the lives lost in the Oceangate submersible disaster, let us not forget some more complex truths to learn.

There has been a growing fascination with exploration in extreme environments in recent years, coupled with the emergence of thrill-seeking adventurism among wealthy patrons. While these two endeavors may seem similar, they differ significantly in their motives, goals, and impact on society.

Exploration in extreme environments involves venturing into harsh and inhospitable regions, such as deep-sea trenches, polar regions, deserts, or space, undertaking these challenging journeys to gather data, study ecosystems, uncover new species, and conduct experiments to unravel the mysteries of our planet and beyond.

On the other hand, thrill-seeking adventurism among wealthy patrons stems from a desire for excitement, novelty, and the thrill of pushing personal limits. These individuals often have abundant resources and seek unique, adrenaline-pumping experiences that provide a temporary escape from their mundane routines. Activities such as extreme sports, luxury expeditions, or purchasing exclusive adventures cater to their hunger for thrill and the need to differentiate themselves from others in their social circles.

While these adventures may appear glamorous and exciting, they often lack the depth of purpose and scientific pursuit found in the exploration of extreme environments. Rather than advancing scientific knowledge, the primary focus is on personal enjoyment and individual fulfillment. Thrill-seeking adventurism tends to be more self-indulgent, driven by a desire for immediate gratification and the pursuit of novel experiences.

The uniqueness of the Titan submersible lies not in its mission but the in an entrepreneur’s belief that he and his company could apply Silicon Valley development principles to deep sea exploration. The combination of cost-saving off-the-shelf components and a rapid iteration cycle often conveys a first-mover advantage, additional media attention, and funding. Unfortunately, the rest of the equation, fail often, fail fast, does not apply in extreme environments where shortcuts and the substitution of computer simulations for comprehensive testing and validation often have catastrophic fatal outcomes. Allowing risk-taking adventurers along for the ride to help fund and publicize a venture seems somewhat excessive to me.

Bottom line…

I was heartened to see the coordinated multi-nation rescue effort.

Considering the substantial cost of a rescue/recovery effort, it seems prudent to have guidelines and third-party inspections before allowing members of the public to participate in experiments, and they are experiments in extreme environments. While responsible exploration and ecotourism can have positive impacts encouraging the development of infrastructure and jobs, I believe there are ethical questions related to safety, exploitation, and adventure activities to ensure that these efforts do not unduly compromise the safety and well-being of non-mission individuals.

Like those who risk their lives in other extreme sports, the burden of due diligence lies with the individual.

STATE OF PLAY: DURHAM HEARINGS

Seal_of_the_United_States_House_of_Representatives.svg

Yesterday I watched the entirety of Special Counsel John Durham’s testimony before the House Committee on the Judiciary, where he was questioned about the “Durham Report,” or more formally, the “Report on Matters Related to Intelligence Activities and Investigations Arising Out of the 2016 Presidential Campaigns.”

The report itself was unsatisfying as it was severely flawed as to its scope, which omitted several important events and the fact that several key players, such as the top leadership of the Department of Justice and FBI, were never interviewed under oath. It is as if the Special Counsel sought to limit the damage to the Department of Justice, which remained his employer throughout the investigation.

Remember, Durham was not an “independent” counsel and was subject to DOJ policies and regulations.

Independent counsels were appointed by a special three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals under the now-expired Ethics in Government Act of 1978. The act provided a framework for investigating and prosecuting government officials, including the President, for alleged criminal misconduct.

It was replaced by a “Special Counsel” position established under the U.S. Department of Justice regulations where the Attorney General or, in some cases, a Deputy Attorney General, appoints a special counsel to investigate and potentially prosecute matters of public concern.

The hearing was about what you would expect, with the progressive communist democrats attacking John Durham, the report's contents, and inserting statements having nothing to do with the matters at hand. Like most hearings, it was a matter of political grandstanding and speechifying mixed with attempts at asking gotcha questions.

What I learned…

The primary takeaway is that the report was flawed as it omitted critical events and players. Among the players never questioned under oath were FBI Director James B. Comey, FBI Director Andrew McCabe, FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, Fusion GPS president Glenn Simpson, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap, and many others. The fact is that Durham had subpoena power as a special counsel and could have compelled those witnesses to cooperate.

I also learned that words alone cannot describe my disgust for Congress on both sides of the aisle.

Moreover, I struggled with descriptive adjectives to describe certain progressive communist democrats on the Committee, such as Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Henry Johnson (D-NY), Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Cori Bush (D-MO), Ted Lieu (D-CA), and the worst of the worst liar, leaker, perjurer, and evidence fabricator Adam Schiff (D-CA).

Corrupt, odious, evil, un-American, incompetent, absurd, disrespectful, dishonest, deceptive, liar, pampered, privileged, and some descriptive word combinations that involve words used more in rap videos.

As disappointing as the Durham hearing, there was good news ...

House Votes to Censure Adam Schiff

The House voted largely along party lines (213-209) to pass a Republican measure censuring Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA).

All Democrats voted against it while the five Republican members of the House Ethics Committee, as well as Representative Buck, voted "present" on the measure. Representative Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) removed the $16 million fine from her previous bill to gain passage.  Luna claimed that "Mr. Schiff exploited his position as chair of Intel Committee, and every opportunity possible, threatening national security, undermining our duly elected president and bringing dishonor upon the institution.

The present votes were excusable as Schiff will be the subject of a House Ethics Committee for investigation over his "falsehoods, misrepresentations and abuse of sensitive information."

118th CONGRESS
1st Session

H. RES. 489

Censuring and condemning Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

June 9, 2023

Mrs. Luna (for herself, Mr. Gaetz, Mrs. Boebert, Mr. Moore of Alabama, Mr. Hern, Mr. Burlison, Ms. Hageman, Mr. Norman, Mr. Langworthy, Mr. Mike Garcia of California, and Mr. Luttrell) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Ethics

RESOLUTION

Censuring and condemning Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District.

Whereas the allegation that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 Presidential election has been revealed as false by numerous in-depth investigations, including the recent report by Special Counsel John Durham, which documents how the conspiracy theory was invented, funded, and spread by President’s Trump’s political rivals;

Whereas Representative Adam Schiff, who served as ranking minority member and then Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives (HPSCI), occupied positions of extreme trust, affording him access to sensitive intelligence unavailable to most Members of Congress;

Whereas for years Representative Schiff abused this trust by citing evidence of collusion that—as is clear from reports by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and Special Counsel Durham—does not exist;

Whereas, by repeatedly telling these falsehoods, Representative Schiff purposely deceived his Committee, Congress, and the American people;

Whereas Representative Schiff lent credibility to the Steele dossier—a collection of debunked collusion accusations funded by President Trump’s political rivals—by reading false Steele allegations into the Congressional Record at a HPSCI hearing on March 20, 2017;

Whereas once again abusing his privileged access to classified information, Representative Schiff composed a false memo justifying the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant application on Trump associate Carter Page, which Inspector General Horowitz later found was riddled with 17 major mistakes and omissions, provoking FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer to state unequivocally that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “mislead the FISC”;

Whereas, by publicly smearing Carter Page as a Russian collaborator and justifying spurious investigations of him, Representative Schiff contributed to the gross violation of a United States citizen’s civil liberties, thereby committing the very abuses HPSCI is tasked with identifying and thwarting;

Whereas as HPSCI ranking minority member and Chairman, Representative Schiff behaved dishonestly and dishonorably on many other occasions, including by falsely denying that his staff coordinated with a whistleblower to launch the first impeachment of President Trump;

Whereas as part of his impeachment efforts, during an HPSCI hearing on September 26, 2019, Representative Schiff recited a false, concocted rendition of a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky;

Whereas Representative Schiff exploited his positions on HPSCI to encourage and excuse abusive intelligence investigations of Americans for political purposes;

Whereas Representative Schiff used his position and access to sensitive information to instigate a fraudulently based investigation, which he then used to amass political gain and fundraising dollars;

Whereas the American taxpayers paid $32 million to fund the investigation into collusion that was launched as a result of Representative Schiff’s lies, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information.

Now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That—

(1) the House of Representatives censures and condemns Adam Schiff, Representative of California’s 30th Congressional District, for conduct that misleads the American people in a way that is not befitting an elected Member of the House of Representatives;

(2) Representative Adam Schiff will forthwith present himself in the well of the House of Representatives for the pronouncement of censure;

(3) Representative Adam Schiff will be censured with the public reading of this resolution by the Speaker; and

(4) the Committee on Ethics shall conduct an investigation into Representative Adam Schiff’s lies, misrepresentations, and abuses of sensitive information.

Bottom line…

We are screwed. And even if we allow the GOP to gain an unassailable majority in the House and Senate and assume the Presidency, it may not be enough to overcome our political overlords and the bureaucratic deep state.

That doesn’t mean we don’t try – it just means there are no quick fixes. Remember that our enemies like China, Russia, Iran, and the Democrats get a vote!

I say again; we are so screwed.

65 PROJECT -- LEGAL VIGILANTES?

DEMOCRAT-JUSTICE

It should come as no surprise that the progressive communist democrats, the party of lawyers, have found another way to attack lawyers who lawfully and ethically resent their opposition’s candidates and policies.

By criminalizing the practice of law and claiming that an attorney who discusses legal options and strategies with their client is guilty of a crime and therefore nullifies attorney-client privilege using the crime-fraud exception.  Thus, an attorney can be forced to disclose typically privileged documents and communications to the prosecution unless challenged in court.

The attorney-client privilege is a legal principle that protects the confidentiality of communications between an attorney and their client. It encourages open and honest communication between attorneys and their clients, allowing clients to provide complete and accurate information to their attorneys without fear that those communications will be disclosed.

However, the exception to the attorney-client privilege, known as the crime-fraud exception, claims the privilege does not apply when the communication between an attorney and client is made in furtherance of a crime or fraud. This means that if a client seeks legal advice or assistance to commit a crime or engage in fraudulent activities, the attorney-client privilege may not protect those communications from disclosure.

Thus, attorneys who provided legal advice relating to the 2020 election are presumptively and wrongly alleged to have participated in a criminal matter.

The attack on John Eastman…

EASTMAN-1

Eastman replies…

The 65 Project, a group of radical Democrat activists (and 1 Never-Trump Republican) filed a bar complaint against me with the Supreme Court of the United States. In it, the Group asks that the Court immediately suspend my SCOTUS bar membership without a hearing or investigation and then ultimately disbar me altogether.

This is part of a well-funded effort to attack every attorney participating in the 2020 election challenges. More broadly, the Group has admitted that its goal is “to deter right-wing talent from signing on to any future GOP efforts” to challenge elections, not only by bringing bar complaints but to “shame them and make them toxic in their communities and their firms.”

The complaint is full of false statements and deliberate misrepresentations, so we have Dr. John Eastman fired back with a hard-hitting response, which is available HERE.

The fight continues in California…

Disbarment Proceedings for John Eastman, Ex-Trump Election Lawyer, Begin in California

A disciplinary hearing for John Eastman, the attorney who devised ways to keep Donald Trump in office after he lost the 2020 election against Joe Biden, will begin Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The California State Bar filed eleven charges in January against Eastman, who was until recently dean of Chapman University’s School of Law in Orange County. He stands accused of making false and misleading statements regarding election fraud, “including statements on January 6, 2021, at a rally in Washington, D.C., that contributed to provoking a crowd to assault and breach the Capitol to intimidate then-Vice President Pence and prevent the electoral count from proceeding.”

Eastman will spend the day testifying in his defense in the hope his law license will not be suspended. The disbarment hearing is expected to last eight days, the Associated Press reported. The final decision is left to the California Supreme Court.

The dean was a former law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas and ran for California Attorney General in 2010.

What did Eastman do?

Eastman crafted a legal memo suggesting how the constitutional electoral process could be used to challenge election results that may have been fraudulently certified due to election irregularities. 

John Eastman also spoke at the January 6 rally, where he presented a legal argument suggesting that Vice President Mike Pence could reject certain electoral votes, potentially altering the outcome of the election and essentially describing a political procedure used by Democrats in previous elections. Among other things, Eastman had a First Amendment right to speak his mind.

Hardly a criminal matter, but then again, the Democrats lied about Trump and improperly impeached him -- twice.

Weaponizing the legal system by attacking individual lawyers representing specific candidates …

According to Influence Watch…

The 65 Project is a campaign targeting lawyers who aided attempts by then-President Donald Trump and his supporters to overturn the 2020 election results using advertisements, threats of disbarment, and changing rules within the American Bar Association, ostensibly to deter future similar efforts.

The 65 Project was “devised” by Democratic consultant and former Clinton administration official Melissa Moss. It is a project of Law Works, a group with no website or public financial disclosures. LawWorks has previously received grants from public policy-oriented foundation Democracy Fund and is a fiscal project of the Franklin Education Forum, a nonprofit organization that provides training and support to, “advance and broaden the appeal of the progressive cause.”

The name “65 Project” refers to the number of lawsuits filed by supporters of President Donald Trump to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Though the 65 Project claims to be bipartisan, it is not targeting any Democratic-aligned attorneys who have challenged election laws or results in the past, and is advised exclusively by Democrats and Democratic allies. Texas attorney Paul Davis has described the project as “a desperate attempt by leftist hacks and mercenaries” and an effort “to neutralize anyone on the right with the ability to stand in the way of the left’s efforts to hide malfeasance in the 2020 elections and to clear the path for a repeat of similar malfeasance in the 2022 mid-terms.”

Attorney Michael Teter is the managing director of the 65 Project. He was previously a general counsel for Represent.Us, a left-of-center campaign finance regulation advocacy group, and he was an assistant attorney general in Utah. From 2006-2008, Teter was a litigation associate with Perkins Coie, a law firm with close ties to the Democratic National Committee.

[OCS: Remember, Perkins Coie was the law firm that hired Fusion GPS and was directly involved with a series of Trump Hoaxes. And political practice partner Marc Elias led to actions that may have unconstitutionally violated existing state election laws.] 

The 65 Project’s Senior Advisor is David Brock, the founder of Media Matters for America and American Bridge 21st Century. <Source>

[OCS: Media Matters is a progressive communist democrat propaganda front group.]

Danger to our electoral and legal system…

Engaging in a political strategy that curtails the availability of legal representation by attacking or impeding the legitimate legal representation of political candidates, parties, initiatives, and fundraisers can have a chilling effect on the rule of law and undermine the democratic process.

Attorneys attacking other attorneys for partisan purposes may offend the principles of fairness, justice, and due process and violates ethical principles of professionalism, fairness, and respect for the law.

Portraying fellow attorneys representing political candidates in an unfavorable light can lead to negative public perception. Such actions may be viewed as extremist, intolerant, or anti-democratic, which can alienate potential supporters and damage the individual's or groups' reputations.

Why it works…

Progressive communist democrats run most bar associations, and the media is all-to-willing to publicize bar association fillings and smear the name of decent attorneys for partisan political purposes.

Bottom line…

I believe that attorney misconduct is not one-sided and that some attorneys on the GOP side, like Sydney Powell and L. Linn Wood, deserve scrutiny and sanctions for their egregious legal actions.

It is also my belief that bar associations, being professional organizations primarily composed of lawyers, have inherent structural biases and conflicts of interest in regulating entry into the legal profession, using their regulatory powers to protect their own members or maintain a monopoly over legal services, potentially hindering the advancement of a more inclusive and diverse legal community.

It is time to investigate bar associations and the handling of complaints, sanctions, and fines, along with opening the process to more public disclosure and scrutiny.

We are so screwed.

COWBOY 2 A.M. WARNING -- CHICKS WITH DICKS MAY BE PRESENT

In case you haven't noticed, the progressive communist democrats are attacking America's culture and traditional exceptionalism.

Along with their attack on "toxic masculinity," they are attacking the American cowboy's rugged individualism, resourcefulness, and country music traditions. 

GI

Do what you want in your private lives, but do not expect me to celebrate your fetishes and delusions. As for commercial establishments, stick to business and leave the social punditry to the ill-informed useful idiots.

About those useful idiots...

The term "useful idiots" originated during the Cold War and referred to individuals who unwittingly supported the agendas of oppressive regimes like the Soviet Union without fully understanding the implications or consequences of their actions. 

The danger of "useful idiots" lies in their unwitting contribution to causes or ideologies that can be harmful or oppressive to the majority.

These individuals often genuinely believe they are acting in the best interest of a particular cause or movement. However, their lack of critical thinking or understanding can make them susceptible to manipulation and exploitation by those with hidden agendas.

Bottom line...

While it is essential to avoid stigmatizing or pathologizing transgender individuals or suggesting that their identity poses inherent dangers, it is also crucial that their beliefs and behaviors are not celebrated by demand.

It is one thing to empathize with others and respect their right to hold different opinions. Still, it is quite another thing to demand they be made a "protected class" under the law and then criminalize dissenting opinions. 

It is also troublesome when one tries to "normalize" behavior previously viewed as outside of mainstream norms with long-term individual and societal consequences such as chemically castrating or surgically altering children to conform to their parent's, teacher's, or activist's ideological agenda.  

I would be curious as to why Anheuser-Busch chose to market against its core customer constituency and create a marketing campaign celebrating trans actress, comedian, and content creator Dylan Mulvaney.  I would also like to know how much Anheuser-Busch has invested in Brooks' bar and beer equipment.

We are so screwed.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: THE ASSWIPE WHO RECOMMENDED FBI DIRECTOR CHISTOPHER WRAY TO TRUMP

Something stinks in New Jersey, and it appears to be the rotting corpse of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s political career…

Why is a failed politician who cannot get elected in his home state of New Jersey running for the Presidency of the United States?

Or, perhaps a better question is, who is putting up the money for Christie to serve as an “attack dog” attempting to bring down Donald Trump?

In case you are not familiar with Christie…

  • Christie was the man that closed the State of New Jersey’s beaches during the pandemic and then was caught on the beach with his family and security detail.

Cc-beachGov. Chris Christie of New Jersey provoked widespread ridicule as pictures emerged of him and his family sunning themselves on an empty beach that had been closed during the holiday weekend because of a state government shutdown. His outing came as the state park police were turning away families who arrived at the beach’s main gate hoping to spend the day by the ocean. <Source>

  • Christie was the man who personally recommended Christopher Wray, the second most corrupt FBI Director in modern history, to President Donald Trump.

Cwc-1An assistant attorney general from Georgia, Wray was nominated by George W. Bush to be US assistant attorney general in 2003. He spent two years at the DOJ before going to private practice at King & Spalding, where he represented pharmaceutical and telecom companies, among others, that were being investigated by the DOJ and other federal agencies.

In September of 2013, Christie aides, working with local Port Authority transportation officials, created an artificial traffic jam on the New Jersey side of the George Washington bridge by closing toll lanes, allegedly to punish the Fort Lee, N.J. mayor for not supporting Christie’s reelection. Traffic was snarled for days, and one woman died in the gridlock when paramedics couldn’t reach her. Christie’s aides pled guilty to creating the obstruction in November, and face up to 20 years in jail, but the governor has not been charged with a crime.

Wray served as Christie’s “personal attorney” during the investigation, and Christie turned over his phone to him as investigators were seeking deleted text messages between Christie and his aides. <Source>

So why is he attacking Trump?

In a classic case of projection, we find an abject loser, Chris Christie, calling former President Trump a loser.

‘Loser, loser, loser’: Christie slams Trump election losses

 

Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie slammed former President Trump on Sunday as a “three-time loser” as the former New Jersey governor ramps up criticism of his one-time ally.

“I will do what I need to do to be up on that stage to try to save my party and save my country from going down the road of being led by three-time loser Donald Trump,” Christie said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Loser in 2018 by losing the House, loser in 2020 by losing the White House and the United States Senate, and the worst midterm performance we have seen in a long, long time, led by Donald Trump-selected candidates with Donald Trump as the main issue in many of those races. Loser, loser, loser,” Christie said.

Christie, now a vocal critic of the former president, is in the 2024 ring with Trump and an already crowded field of high-profile Republicans, including Trump’s former vice president, Mike Pence, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. <Source>

Bottom line…

The answer matrix is minimal.

  • Ego and personal publicity.
  • Grifting off fundraising to build a campaign war chest for another position or purchase a government position.
  • He truly despises Donald Trump as a person, a political adversary, or a threat to the country.
  • He relies on the transactional nature of Trump's character and hopes to be forgiven and welcomed back into the fold.
  • He is fronting for the establishment wing of the GOP or some other political entity.
  • Or a combination of the above.

However, in the final analysis, Chris Christie is an unacceptable candidate for any government position. 

And we are screwed if we believe his bullshit!

JUNETEENTH IS AN INCONSEQUENTIAL HOLIDAY

Juneteenth-19

Fact: Republican President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, as the nation approached its third year of a bloody civil war.

The proclamation declared "that all persons held as slaves" within the rebellious states "are, and henceforward shall be free."

Due to a confluence of factors, Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, and announced General Order No. 3, which declared that all slaves in Texas were free.

While the date has historical significance to blacks in Texas, the holiday was codified as a federal holiday, enshrining June 19 as the national day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States, as part of a progressive communist democrat scheme to pander to the black voting block and signed into law by Democrat President Biden on June 17, 2021. Widely celebrated by all federal employees as another paid holiday.

Bottom line...

Juneteenth is just another progressive communist democrat attempt to divide this nation by race and color.

We are so screwed.

QUIT PRETENDING: IT'S OBAMA'S IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL

Xs

Literally, I detest the proposed Iranian nuclear deal with the fire of a thousand burning suns, a potential consequence of providing billions of dollars and a relaxed path to nuclear arms to a nation governed by a religious theocracy that holds dying for one’s religion as the road to salvation and everlasting rewards. Not suicide, but martyrdom and a disregard for the value of human life.

The original Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was an agreement created and negotiated by the Obama Administration in 2015 to limit Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The program was known to be deliberately flawed as it allowed Iran to continue some uranium enrichment activities and permitted the development of advanced centrifuges after a certain period; verification and spot inspections mechanisms were minimal and mainly relied on self-reporting as inspectors were denied access to nuclear facilities for months, did not mention the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles, and contained sunset provisions that gradually lifted restrictions on Iran's nuclear program over time. It didn’t matter that Iran openly cheated and built secret nuclear facilities where nuclear weapon research proceeded unabated.

Proof of Obama’s malevolent intent can be found in his classification of the JCPOA as an "executive agreement" to sidestep Senate debate and confirmation as a formal treaty.

Reprising Obama’s “agreement” and spinning the story to shift the blame to Biden…

Remember that President Joe Biden is a corrupt, mentally incapacitated hack who has been wrong about every significant foreign policy he voted for. His Presidential duties have been assumed by Obama’s acolytes who stage-manage Biden’s public appearances.

Biden’s (Iran) Deal That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Imagine you are a senior national-security official. A revolutionary foreign power has worked for decades to undermine American strength and American alliances in a critical region. It is the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism and has funded and directed proxy forces that have killed and maimed U.S. personnel. Its goal is to drive the United States from its corner of the globe and eliminate America’s closest ally in the Greater Middle East. It has spent the past four presidential administrations building the military and technical infrastructure to produce nuclear weapons while concealing and lying about its program. It violates human rights with impunity and has spent the past nine months brutally suppressing a popular revolt against its theocratic rule. It supplies the drones and other weaponry that Russia uses to prosecute an illegal and barbaric war on the sovereign nation of Ukraine.

Would you be inclined to bargain with such a regime? If your answer — against all evidence — is yes, then you can look forward to a short and unhappy career in Joe Biden’s State Department. For President Biden is on the verge of betraying Congress and the American people by rewarding the Islamic Republic of Iran for its various misdeeds.

According to news reports, Biden is prepared to authorize billions of dollars in payments to Iran in exchange for the release of U.S. prisoners, a halt to militia attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq and Syria, cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, a moratorium on ballistic-missile sales to Russia, and a freeze on uranium enrichment at 60 percent (90 percent enriched uranium is considered weapons-grade). Biden will say this perverse arrangement is necessary to free innocents and prevent the outbreak of war. What he won’t be able to do is call it a deal.

Biden can’t call the agreement a deal because he wants to avoid congressional review. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 forbids the president from relieving nuclear-related sanctions on the Islamic Republic without congressional approval. The administration’s end run around the law is clever. It is also pathetic.

This deal that dare not speak its name will have no force. It will rely entirely on the goodwill of the 84-year-old Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, a grizzled trickster and ally of Vladimir Putin. The New York Times reports that Khamenei has authorized the deal because it leaves Iran’s nuclear infrastructure in place. The second Biden begins to doubt the wisdom of paying further ransom money, Khamenei will start spinning his centrifuges once more. And if paramilitaries controlled by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fire mortars on Americans — well, he could say the bloodshed came from militants over whom he exercises no control.

Biden has made a career out of misjudgment. This sure-to-fail bargain with Iran is another entry in a depressing catalogue. <Source>

Why? Justifying Obama’s specious Nobel Peace Prize awarded for his good intentions…

President Barack Obama, as the 44th President of the United States, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, just nine months into his presidency, with zero contributions, substantial or otherwise, to promoting peace and resolving conflicts.

From published reports, it appears that the committee awarding the Nobel Peace Prize was recognizing Obama's “commitment” to reducing the global nuclear threat and his efforts to strengthen international diplomacy in arms control.

For the first time in the history of the Nobel Prize, it was awarded based on a recognition of Obama's good intentions and the “transformative potential” of his presidency – all the result of the progressive propagandists spinning a progressive narrative.

There should be little doubt that Obama was a trained communist, anti-America, anti-Israel, and anti-White -- spouting the anti-nuclear propaganda that the communists ginned up during the cold war and the nuclear arms race to weaken the United States.

Any arguments that the award was an appropriate encouragement for future peace-building efforts were laid to rest after eight years of Obama’s scandal-ridden presidency.

Obama is still seeking to control the narrative...

Obama Stresses ‘Need’ For ‘Digital Fingerprints’ To Crack Down On Information That ‘Is Not True’

Former President Barack Obama called for “digital fingerprints” to crack down on information which “is not true,” during a Thursday podcast interview with a former advisor.

“The need for us, for the general public, I think to be more discriminating consumers of news and information, the need for us to over time develop technologies to create watermarks or digital fingerprints so we know what is true and what is not true,” Obama told David Axelrod, a former Obama advisor who is now a CNN contributor. <Source>

Bottom line…

One can only imagine if Obama is seeking the holy grail – destabilizing America on behalf of the communists and an everlasting legacy as the man who handed the sword of fire to Allah’s acolytes who destroyed Israel.

Obama is the embodiment of evil.

We are so screwed.
