END NIKKI HALEY IN IOWA

It is time for voters to realize that the progressive communist democrats are voting for Nikki Haley to embarrass Ron DeSantis and cripple former President Donald Trump.

Not one individual can point to Nikki Haley’s accomplishments other than representing the establishment wing of the Republican Party that jumps the aisle to greenlight the progressive communist democrat agenda as long as they get re-elected and participate in the share of spoils.

Haley-rino

Bottom line…

We are so screwed if Nikki Haley succeeds.

LLOYD AUSTIN: WAS HE REALLY IN THE HOSPITAL?

Austin

I find it almost unbelievable that the Secretary of Defense’s location was not known to his security detail, the White House Situation Room, and the commanders in the nuclear triad.

Something appears to be amiss with the story about SecDef’s hospital stay.

Austin kept prostate cancer, surgery complications a secret from everyone, even Biden

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has prostate cancer, and his recent secretive hospitalization was for surgery and later to treat a urinary tract infection related to that operation, his doctors said Tuesday.

The cancer revelation answers the main question about Austin’s hospitalization, which has now lasted eight days. But it may only add to questions of accountability, since President Joe Biden only learned about the cancer diagnosis on Tuesday, even though it was made about a month ago.

“Nobody at the White House knew that Secretary Austin had prostate cancer until this morning,” said John Kirby, the National Security Council spokesman. “And the president was informed immediately after.”

The 70-year-old Austin was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Dec. 22 and underwent surgery to treat the cancer. He developed the infection a week later. Biden and other senior administration officials were not told for days about his hospitalization or his cancer.

According to the doctors, the cancer was detected when Austin had a regular screening in early December. They said he “underwent a minimally invasive surgical procedure” and went home the next day. But on Jan. 1 he reported nausea and severe abdominal, hip and leg pain due to the infection.

They said his prostate cancer was detected early, and his prognosis is excellent.

The cancer revelation comes after days of persistent questions about Austin’s hospitalization and the delays in notifying key leaders. And it raises more questions about the transparency and truthfulness of the Defense Department, which for the past four days said he was initially at Walter Reed for an “elective medical procedure,” and not prostate surgery. <Source>

Bottom line…

Could he have been in a secret deal helping to facilitate a deal between Russia and Ukraine? Secret because Biden needs a major surprise to dig himself out of the grave he has dug for himself. Or perhaps other nations are the subject of Austin's attention.

Something is fishy. Either we have a stunning display of incompetence leading to an accidental national security breach, or Administration officials lied to the public.

We are so screwed.

HOW COMPROMISED IS OUR GOVERNMENT?

Uncle-sam-gun-to-head

We incentivize our enemies when spies are not executed or given lengthy prison sentences. 

Navy Service Member Who Sold Secrets To China Gets 27 Months In Prison

A Navy service member, Petty Officer Wenheng Zhao, hailing from Monterey Park, California, has been sentenced to just over two years in prison following his guilty plea for accepting bribes in exchange for transmitting sensitive military information to a Chinese intelligence officer.

The 26-year-old Zhao was handed a 27-month prison term and a $5,500 fine. Despite facing the potential of a 20-year sentence, 15 years for the conspiracy charge and 5 years for the bribery charge, Zhao’s plea agreement led to a comparatively shorter sentence.

Assistant Attorney General Matthew G. Olsen of the Justice Department’s National Security Division remarked, “Mr. Zhao betrayed his solemn oath to defend his country and endangered those who serve in the U.S. military. Today, he is being held to account for those crimes. The Justice Department is committed to combating the Chinese government’s efforts to undermine our nation’s security and holding accountable those who violate our laws as part of those efforts.”

[OCS: It appears that President Biden, as well as other high-ranking officials, has been compromised by the Communist Chinese and are either being blackmailed into committing or condoning traitorous behavior or are willing ideological participants. Considering that the United States is adopting many of the police state tactics of the Communist Chinese government.]

Zhao, who possessed security clearance, served at Naval Base Ventura County in Port Hueneme, California. The Department of Justice (DOJ) revealed that the illicit activities occurred between August 2021 and May 2023, during which Zhao accessed restricted locations to obtain classified information.

[OCS: Let us not forget that our nation’s premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies were engaged in un-American political spying and criminal behaviors rather than ferreting out foreign spies that have infiltrated our government. Who was monitoring security clearances.]

The DOJ disclosed that he received at least $14,866 from a Chinese intelligence officer for providing details on U.S. Navy operational security, military trainings, exercises, and critical infrastructure.

The information shared with the Chinese intelligence officer encompassed plans for a large-scale training exercise in the Pacific, operational orders, and documents related to the Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar system in Okinawa, Japan.

The sentencing reflects the government’s commitment to addressing security threats posed by individuals compromising national defense interests for personal gain. <Source>

[OCS: This last statement is pure bullshit and reflects the government’s apathy in protecting the sovereignty, safety, and security of the United States.]

Bottom line…

Psd-onenation

There are more Chinese spies in America working in universities, defense contractors, and handling sensitive research and critical infrastructure than anywhere else in the world. Yet we continue to allow Chinese nationals or Chinese-Americans with close relatives in China to hold sensitive positions.

Are we that fucking stupid, or are we that compromised?

Either way, we are screwed.

THE GOVERNMENT'S NEW TRINITY OF TRUTH

Cos-shine

I am old enough to believe in the true/false binary, where something is either true or false.

However, the progressive communist democrats have, as they are wont to do, redefined the meaning of truth based on one's intentions.

According to the government, CISA, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which is self-described as "an operational component of the Department of Homeland Security," in particular, there is a new trinity of truth.
  • Misinformation is false but not created or shared with the intention of causing harm. -- This is lying with the imprimatur of a progressive communist democrat agenda.

  • Disinformation is deliberately created to mislead, harm, or manipulate a person, social group, organization, or country. -- This is lying, propaganda, if you will, disseminated by your opposition.

  • Malinformation is based on fact, but used out of context to mislead, harm, or manipulate.  -- This is the most insidious component of the trinity of truth,  telling the truth about your opposition in such a manner as to damage their narrative, cause, or agenda. According to the government, malformation is pointing out their lies which impacts government authority and credibility.

The sole purpose of these definitions is not to allow an individual to identify and categorize the information they are receiving but to form the basis for censoring the information they do not want you to receive and leaving information favorable to their narrative, cause, or agenda.

Foreign actors?

Again, according to the CISA, "Foreign actors use misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation campaigns to cause chaos, confusion, and division. These malign actors are seeking to interfere with and undermine our democratic institutions and national cohesiveness."

But what if these so-called "foreign actors" are, in reality, political factions embedded in the incumbent government or a political party?

As a real-world example, consider the Russia hoax designed by Hillary Clinton and her cadre of progressive communist democrats and advanced by the progressive communist democrats in the government, primarily the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This was clearly disinformation deliberately created to mislead, harm, or manipulate a person, organization, and—namely, President Donald Trump, Trump's political supporters, the GOP organization, and to damage the United States from within.

Consider how Congress promoted this hoax, namely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Representative Adam Schiff, Chair of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, who has been caught red-handed lying, leaking, manipulating, and manufacturing evidence against Donald Trump and members of his administration.

And consider the "Fedsurrection," where government insiders disguised as Trump supporters entrapped American citizens as they led them through the labyrinth of congressional hallways to critical points in the Capitol so they could be prosecuted in future proceedings.

Or, if you are open-minded, consider the proposition that the only systemic racism in America arises from the government's promotion of progressive communist democrat's affirmative action programs. And that DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) is re-branded communism, where one class is forced to provide for another class based on their identity. And, in most cases, the part they are reluctant to say out loud is Marx's statement, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs," which refers to the distribution of goods, capital, and services. We are looking at Hegle's dialectic, where our institutions are being hollowed out, and their purpose is inverted to its opposite. 

Censorship.

There is sworn testimony and documentary evidence that government actors spied on Americans and proactively encouraged those who ran social media platforms to censor individuals or de-platform them altogether on the government's specious claim they were spreading disinformation or unfounded and debunked conspiracy theories—much of which has been proven to be accurate and illustrative of government falsehoods.

Accountability.

The politicians waffle on and on about accountability. Still, they exempt themselves from the law or rely on their exalted position to protect them against the consequences of their actions. None of those information evildoers have been punished because the progressive communist democrats control the levers of power necessary to hold individuals and organizations accountable.

The clear and present danger of government tyranny.

Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland

The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation. While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; (2) continued calls for violence directed at U.S. critical infrastructure; soft targets and mass gatherings; faith-based institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques; institutions of higher education; racial and religious minorities; government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement and the military; the media; and perceived ideological opponents; and (3) calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events. <Source>

When the government defines terrorism in terms of information, they are conferring onto themselves the ability to remove or restrict your constitutional rights without due process.

Bottom line…

The idea that questioning your government or speaking your mind is somehow a terrorist activity that needs to be monitored and punished is another step toward tyranny. 

Folks, we have done it to ourselves. Most individuals are so busy with their daily lives that they don't have the time to read, research, digest, and make sense of the information spewing into their lives with the force of a firehose. Many are so lazy that they prefer curated snapshots and soundbites over longer, well-reasoned expositions.

If we allow the progressive communist democrats to prevail in the 2024 election, we are well and thoroughly screwed. What is at stake is political betrayal and the loss of the concept of the "consent of the governed."
