KYLE RITTENHOUSE: ABOUT THOSE DEFENSE BENJAMINS?

tc-r

While I support our inalienable rights to self-defense, justice, our Constitution, and fairness, I find that there is something unseemly about the backroom machinations regarding the defense of Kyle Rittenhouse.

(1)  It appears that Kyle Rittenhouse supports the Black Lives Matter movement and peaceful demonstrations.

Kyle Rittenhouse was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, his first media appearance since he was found not guilty of all five charges against him in his murder trial. In a clip from that interview released by Fox News, Rittenhouse insisted that his actions “had nothing to do with race,” and expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement and peaceful demonstrations. <Source>

Sorry, I cannot be sympathetic or support anyone supporting a communist front group like Black Lives Matter and their agenda to destroy our inalienable rights, our nation, our Constitution, and everything American. As for peaceful demonstrations, BLM appears to be behind every protest that turned into an orgy of rioting, looting, arson, and the wanton destruction of public and private property.

(2)  It appears that the Rittenhouse defense team had an embedded Fox News film crew, “driven in part by the effort to crowdfund Rittenhouse’s legal defense.”

Speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo after the verdicts were rendered, Rittenhouse attorney Mark Richards noted, “I did not approve of that,” replied Richards. “I threw them out of the room several times. They were — and I’m not suggesting that Fox or some other network — I don’t think a film crew is appropriate for something like this. But the people who were raising the money to pay for the experts and to pay for the attorneys were trying to raise money. And that was part of it. So, I think–I don’t want to say an evil, but a definite distraction was part of it. And I didn’t approve of it, but I’m not always the boss.” <Source>

While most journalistic media organizations claim that they do not pay for interviews, it is a little-known fact that they license production materials like photos and other material” as a means of funds transfer.

(3)  It appears that the slimy L. Lin Woods was involved with the initial defense effort and may have used Rittenhouse to boost Woods’ notoriety, fundraising efforts, and other causes.

Lin Wood is trying to claw back the $2 million he raised for Kyle Rittenhouse's bail

The right-wing lawyer and conspiracy theorist Lin Wood is seeking to take back $2 million his foundation raised from donors to post bail for Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager accused of shooting three people at Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, court documents show.

A September 17 letter said the funds to free Rittenhouse on bail had been provided by Wood's #FightBack Foundation, and therefore must eventually be returned to the foundation.

The letter was signed by a lawyer, Xavier Solis, who said he was working on behalf of #FightBack. Wood and another conservative attorney, John Pierce, launched the foundation last year to support Rittenhouse, though the organization later pivoted to funding efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

"The Rittenhouse bail was paid by #FightBack Foundation, a 501(c)(4) non-profit, from donations it received," Wood told Insider Thursday in an email. "Under law, the bail monies must be returned to #FightBack."

Rittenhouse and his family have since cut ties with Wood, Pierce, and #FightBack, and said they never received a full accounting of all the money that was raised in Rittenhouse's name. <Source>

(4)  There may be big bucks at play.

Following the egregious and erroneous portrayal of Nick “The Covington Kid” Sandmann in the media, Sandman filed multi-million dollar defamation lawsuits against media organizations. Although a non-disclosure agreement covers the exact settlement amounts, several prominent media organizations such as CNN, The Washington Post, and others reached agreements with Sandmann’s legal team. The resolution of other cases involving NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, Rolling Stone, Gannett, and the New York Times are unknown.

Bottom line…

I wish Kyle Rittenhouse protection against manipulation by nefarious individuals monetizing his notoriety for their financial interests or to advance their partisan political agenda. Essentially turning Rittenhouse into a repugnant, loathsome slimy character like David Hogg, one of the many survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who turned into a monetized gun control advocate.

There is no doubt that Kyle Rittenhouse suffered a life-altering traumatic experience that need not have happened except for the political ambitions of a progressive communist democrat prosecutor and an overtly hostile media. I hope that he finds some measure of peace and doesn’t become a media Hogg.

The real danger comes from the progressive communist democrats and their media propagandists who continue to distort and racialize the Kyle Rittenhouse self-defense shooting – including lying about the proven details of the case.

To see how disgusting the progressive communist democrats are, you may wish to watch Tucker Carlson’s post-verdict program. (Not to be confused with the upcoming interview presentation.)

We are so screwed when our politicians and media openly and knowingly lie to our faces. This is not by accident or caused by incompetence -- it is an attack on American and American citizens on behalf of our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

COMMUNIST CHINA INVITES AMERICA TO COMMIT ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL SUICIDE

uncle-sam-gun-head-blue-border

There is no doubt in my mind that many U.S. elected officials, bureaucrats, and special interests in the corporate world are inextricably linked to Communist China.

From President Joe Biden and his corrupt family dealings with China, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose family fortunes are linked to Communist China’s shipping industry, to the tech corporations that control the censorship of our media and pander to Chinese demands, we are being significantly influenced by Communist China propaganda and economic threats.

So why am I not surprised that the Communist China government is inviting America to commit suicide by implementing the kill shot of the progressive communist democrats, which is deceptively titled “Build Back Better?” A package of economy-killing programs designed to fundamentally transform America into a socialist disaster where everybody but the elites are equally miserable.

CGTN - China state-affiliated media: China’s Ambassador Qin Gang welcomes the U.S. to take part in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and “find its complementarity with Build Back Better World.”

What is China’s Belt and Road Initiative(BRI)

The BRI is an ambitious plan to develop two new trade routes connecting China with the rest of the world. But the initiative is about far more than infrastructure.

It is an effort to develop an expanded, interdependent market for China, grow China’s economic and political power, and create the right conditions for China to build a high technology economy.

Why create the Belt and Road?

There are three main motivations for the BRI. The first, and most discussed internationally, is China’s rivalry with the US. The vast majority of Chinese international trade passes by sea through the Malacca strait off the coast of Singapore which is a major US ally. The initiative is integral to China’s efforts to create its own more secure trade routes.

There is no doubt that China’s intention is also to make participating nations interdependent with the Chinese economy, and thereby build economic and political influence for China.

In that respect it has similarities with the Marshall Plan that followed the Second World War – but with the essential difference that China dispenses funding to other nations based purely on shared economic interests.

The second key reason for the initiative is the legacy of the 2008 financial crisis. China’s government responded to the emergency with a ¥4tn stimulus package, issuing contracts to build railways, bridges, and airports, but saturated the Chinese market in the process. The Belt and Road framework provides an alternative market for China’s vast state-owned companies beyond the borders of China.

Finally, the Belt and Road is seen as a crucial element in the Chinese government’s efforts to stimulate economies of the country’s central provinces, which historically lag behind richer coastal areas. The government uses the Belt and Road to encourage and support businesses in these central regions, allocating budget generously, and encouraging businesses to compete for Belt and Road contracts.

The Belt and Road Initiative debt trap

‘Debt trap diplomacy’ is the accusation that China uses Belt and Road as part of a manipulative global strategy, funding major infrastructure projects in developing nations with unsustainable loans, then using the debt to gain leverage over those governments. <Source>

It’s all bafflegab and bullpucky…

How many people remember the heavily-touted November 15, 2021, “virtual summit” where President Biden spoke over a Zoom video link for three and a half hours with Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping? A joke on the American people where nothing substantive happened. According to the released readout, the only thing Xi gave Biden was a promise to make a promise sometime in the future— the promise of a possible conversation that will most likely never happen. It had to be a virtual conference, probably with apparatchiks furiously typing messages on Biden’s teleprompter to compensate for the inability of a cognitively impaired President Biden to carry on a coherent conversation for more than a few minutes.

The sad fact is that the Chinese Communists continue to eat our lunch, steal our technology, and further infiltrate American government agencies, institutions, infrastructure, and corporations with the assistance of quislings, enemy collaborators, who are selling out their nation in return for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver. Or, in the case of Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a few moments of pleasure with Fang-Fang, a Communist Chinese spy.

Bottom line…

Say what you want about President Trump’s erratic behavior and mean tweets – he is an American, puts America first, and takes no crap from the Chinese or others that impact American interests.

We are so screwed.

RITTENHOUSE ACQUITTED OF ALL CHARGES: ONE SMALL VICTORY

Let us rejoice that twelve American jurors redressed a partisan political prosecution that should have never been brought when they acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse of all charges. The jurors affirmed our inalienable rights to self-defense in dangerous situations.

kyle

Let us not forget that the un-American progressive communist democrats view this as a defeat in their plan of repressing legal, legitimate, and necessary pushback to their violent and often deadly street actions to advance their agenda to disable or destroy America.

Perhaps the prime example of a progressive communist democrat who has infiltrated the halls of Congress to spew her hatred and disloyalty to our Constitution, our nation, and our American exceptionalism can be found in Representative Cory Bush (D-MO). Bush is not only a racist and radical communist member of the anti-America, anti-White, and anti-Semitic “squad,” she self-identifies as a Black Lives Matter activist. The same Black Lives Matter, a communist front group, that was the proximate cause of the rioting, looting, arson, and murder in Kenosha, Wisconsin that produced the hyper-partisan political prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Representative Cory Bush’s own racist words, “The judge. The jury. The defendant. It’s white supremacy in action. This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable. It’s why Black and brown folks are brutalized and put in cages while white supremacist murderers walk free. I’m hurt. I’m angry. I’m heartbroken.”

Another example of overt racism from a race-baiting exploiter of racial identity politics.

Not only is Kyle Rittenhouse the furthest thing from being a White supremacist, everyone involved, the defender who used deadly force to protect his life and his three attackers were white. All three attackers had criminal backgrounds involving violence, one with an unlawful loaded weapon which he admitted he pointed directly at the defender before he was shot.

Race-baiter and racial extortionist Jesse Jackson, “The verdict throws into doubt the safety of people who protest in support of Black Americans. It seems to me that it’s open season on human rights demonstrators.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom, “America today: you can break the law, carry around weapons built for a military, shoot and kill people, and get away with it. That’s the message we’ve just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation.”

Communist New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, “Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today. The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people. To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement.”

Representative Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, “It is clear that our legal system has one set of rules for some Americans, and very different standards for others. We must continue the fight to end police violence against Black Americans and stand up for issues that affirm their humanity while working to engage the hearts and minds of the American people as we journey forward in the struggle to achieve justice for all.”

Let us not forget that the progressive communist democrat propagandists in the mainstream and social media lied, there is no other word, about the Kenosha situation and personally defamed Kyle Rittenhouse.

When exposed to factual evidence during the trial, many in the audience were surprised that the attackers, whom they characterized as victims, were white, not black. They were astonished that their use of “across state lines” had no legal significance and was a 20-minute trip between two towns. That Rittenhouse did not possess a gun illegally. That the weapon was purchased, stored, and used only in the State of Wisconsin. And that Rittenhouse, characterized by the media as an “active shooter,” shot only those attackers who presented an immediate and imminent threat to his life. Falsely describing an attacker swinging a heavy skateboard at Rittenhouse’s head as being “unarmed.” And never mentioning the man, another criminal, who launched a flying-kick to Rittenhouse's head. 

Many of these media outlets are guilty of malicious defamation, much like those who defamed Nick “the Covington Kid” Sandman over a knowingly false portrayal where he was accused of taunting and mocking a Native American protester – where the protestor was the aggressor as shown by a wider shot of an edited film clip.

Let us not forget that we must continue the fight for justice…

CHAUVIN

In another hyper-partisan prosecution brought by a known racist Attorney General Keith Ellison, we saw the murder conviction of a Minnesota Police Officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd, a criminal. Floyd violently resisted arrest and died from a combination of a lethal dose of Fentanyl, major underlying medical conditions, and the exertion of a struggle with police. This was a high-tech lynching of an innocent police officer doing his duty and spurred on by mob dynamics and a threat to burn down the town if Chauvin was not convicted. The combination of prosecutorial and judicial misconduct should be enough to clear Chauvin on appeal – but the proceedings have irrevocably altered his life.

Bottom line…

A victory for our unalienable human rights, our beloved Constitution, and the Second Amendment.

There is no doubt that a divisive and malignant double standard of justice is at play in the United States. In a reversal of roles, we are seeing tyranny by the minority. This case is an example of why our Constitutional rights are paramount and why we cannot allow our nation to descend into mob rule.

This is but one small victory in the continuing battle for our country. We must remain vigilant and ready to adopt the tactics of our enemy. We should realize that the progressive communist democrats excel in community organizing, media manipulation, and the use of the time-tested, field-proven Rules for Radicals by communist Saul Alinsky.

I urge you to visit https://givesendgo.com/chauvinlegaldefense to donate to Chauvin’s defense. At this time, only $23,780 has been raised because the well-known and more trafficked GoFundMe site refuses to allow a page for Chauvin. It seems progressives have a hate-on for anything which challenges their un-American narrative.

I hope the Rittenhouse Judge goes on to explore prosecutorial misconduct, perjury committed on the stand, and MSNBC’s stalking of jurors during the trial.

Fight on!

IS ADAM SCHIFF A CHINESE AGENT?

SCHIFF-FLAGG

By outward appearances, Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is a serious, articulate, well-educated individual with a law degree from Harvard Law School. Unfortunately, reality intrudes, and Schiff appears to be a repugnant, congenital liar, leaker, and partisan hack doing the bidding of his master, House Speaker Nany Pelosi, a San Francisco progressive communist democrat.

Schiff appears to have no core American values, no shame, and certainly no common sense. What he does have is an unbounded hatred for Donald Trump. Hence his willing participation in three major hoaxes on Americans; the Trump/Russia collusion hoax, the Trump/Ukraine collusion hoax, and the Capitol insurrection hoax, all leading to a near-endless attack on the President of the United States and severe damage to our Constitution and our nation. All three hoaxes are demonstrable lies by sworn testimony, evidentiary documents, and even the admissions of those investigating the various false allegations.

So why am I not surprised when Schiff, appearing on  NBC’s Meet the Press (November 14, 2021), attempted to spin his 4-year long attack on President Trump using a totally false narrative crafted by Hillary Clinton and her cadre of fellow travelers.

TODD: “As Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, do you regret giving some credibility to the Steele dossier before anybody had been able to verify anything in that? A lot of those clips were done before there was any good verification. Look, there's some news organizations that made the mistake of publishing this dossier without verifying it. That's a separate conversation for those news organizations. But you helped give it credibility. Do you regret it?”

[OCS: One, it is almost certain that Schiff knew, early on, the source and nature of the salacious Steele Dossier, just as he conspired and colluded with the fake “whistleblower” (whose identity and testimony is still classified by Schiff) in the Trump/Ukraine hoax. Notice how Todd glosses over the fact that his own news organization was the worst distributor of false and fake news for years! ]

SCHIFF: I don't regret saying that we should investigate claims of someone who, frankly, was a well-respected British intelligence officer. And we couldn't have known, of course, years ago, that we would learn years later that someone who was a primary source lied to him. But what I just said, in the clip you just played, ends up being exactly right, which is Steele did reveal that the Russians were trying to help elect Donald Trump. That turned out to be all too true. And in fact, the Trump campaign chairman was giving internal campaign polling data to Russian intelligence while Russian intelligence was trying to help elect Donald Trump. So, the top line there of Russian help and Trump willingness to accept it and make use of it proved all too accurate.”

[OCS: One might assume that, as the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff would have vetted the information further before proceeding against a presidential candidate and then President of the United States Donald Trump– especially someone in the opposition party. Notice  how Schiff doubles down and continues to state that Trump colluded with the Russians who provided campaign assistance when the exact opposite is true. It was Hillary Clinton’s people who colluded with the Russians and Ukrainians – before, after, and during the election cycle. The fact is that the Russians would have preferred a democrat victory with Clinton in the top spot, especially since Hillary signed-off on giving the Russians ownership to twenty-percent of our uranium reserves. Let us also remember, internal polling data is not classified intelligence and there are no legal restrictions on its dissemination and use. Unlike the classified intelligence found on Clinton’s “private” unsecured email server.]

TODD: “Okay, the summary was accurate, but the details were incorrect. That does undermine the credibility, does it not?”

[OCS: Neither the summary nor the details were true nor accurate. And the credibility of the author and source of the information was questioned by both official and unofficial accounts.]

SCHIFF: Well, certainly. You know, this Danchenko lied to Christopher Steele and then lied to the FBI. He should be prosecuted. He is being prosecuted. And I'll tell you this, if he's convicted, he should not be pardoned the way Donald Trump pardoned people who lied to FBI agents, like Roger Stone and Mike Flynn. So there ought to be the same standard in terms of prosecuting the liars, but I don't think there ought to be any pardon no matter which way the lie is cut.

[OCS: The material does not appear to have originated by Danchenko or his group, but someone higher up in the Hillary Clinton food chain. It is being rumored that Biden’s puppeteers will arrange for pardons of the Obama/Clinton group before leaving office. Both Flynn and Stone were entrapped and their so-called lies were misremembrances and misstatements that ended up in procedural prosecutions. Unlike FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith who altered material evidence submitted to the FISA Court and received a slap on the wrist instead of hard jail time.]

Is Schiff a foreign agent?

Rep. Adam Schiff Met With Former Chairman Of Chinese Communist Party’s Foreign Influence Operations.

The California Congressman has been a leading proponent of the Russiagate hoax, the impeachment hoax, and now the January 6th hoax. All after, he met with a leading Chinese propagandist.

Rep. Adam Schiff met with a Chinese Communist Party official previously responsible for spearheading the regime’s foreign influence operations on a visit to Washington, D.C., sponsored by the China-United States Exchange Foundation. The foundation, known as ‘CUSEF’ for short, has been flagged by the U.S. government for seeking to “influence foreign governments to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.” <Source>

Bottom line…

There is no doubt that Adam Schiff was the greatest promoter of the Steele dossier despite his intelligence committee access to classified briefings casting doubt about the credibility of Christopher Steele and the unverified and unverifiable allegations included in his reports. To watch Schiff attempting to defend his indefensible behavior by claiming that Steele was a respectable individual and that his Russian source(s) lied to him is unforgivable. It is the primary task of intelligence analysts to vet both the source and the information BEFORE launching an official investigation or prosecution. 

Based on the progressive communist democrats' propensity for projection, ascribing their behavior to that of the opposition, I am curious if representative Adam Schiff is a covert Chinese agent much in the same manner that he accused former President Trump of being a Russian agent surrounded by fellow travelers? Especially curious since he refused to eject Eric Swalwell (D-CA) from the intelligence committee after learning Swalwell slept with a Chinese spy who had assisted his early campaign efforts?

We are so screwed.

CONSERVATIVE OANN SELLS OUT AMERICA FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER

sohn

In a previous post, I had noted, “There is no doubt that the radical progressive communist democrat nominee to the Federal Communications Commission, Gigi Sohn, is a clear and present danger to the United States Constitution and free speech.” So I was amazed to find that a significant conservative news network is willing to sell out the conservative cause and the American people in return for a few additional dollars from an increased market share.

wfb-hdr

Conservative Cable Network Gets Behind Biden’s FCC Nominee

OANN hopes Gigi Sohn will be an ally in fights with cable carriers

One of the most right-wing channels on TV is throwing its weight behind a radically progressive Biden nominee who has called conservative news outlets threats to democracy.

One America News Network (OANN) is working behind the scenes to rally conservative support for Gigi Sohn, President Joe Biden’s latest pick to serve on the Federal Communications Commission.

Conservative political operative Bradley Blakeman told the Washington Free Beacon that OANN’s president personally arranged for him to appear in a pro-Sohn segment on the network and that OANN executives believe Sohn will be an ally in the network’s fight to wrest market share away from Fox News.

The belief is rooted in Sohn’s criticism of Fox News. Sohn has questioned whether Fox News should be investigated for being “state-sponsored propaganda with few if any opposing viewpoints.” Fox News and OANN compete for many of the same viewers, and former president Donald Tru encouraged is voters to leave Fox News for OANN or right-wing outlet Newsmax.

OANN president Charles Herring endorsed Sohn in a letter last week, praising her “strong belief and advocacy for diversity in the programming lineup.” A source with knowledge of the situation said Herring is meeting with Republican senators on Capitol Hill to advance Sohn’s nomination. He also arranged for Blakeman, a former adviser to George W. Bush, to praise Sohn on the air.

Blakeman told the Free Beacon that OANN’s endorsement of Sohn has everything to do with business and that Herring personally encouraged him to come on OANN.

A Republican source familiar with the issue called OANN’s belief that Sohn will support the company in its carriage disputes “farcical” and “a hail Mary.”

<Source>

Bottom line…

Like many in the Republican Party who profess to be conservatives, we find their self-interests trumping their sworn duties to uphold, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution and help stop the progressive communist democrat agenda.

With RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) and traitors to the conservative cause, I am rapidly losing faith in the ability of Republicans to do the right thing if we give them back a majority in the House or Senate. Will they be as ruthless as the progressive communist democrats in investigating and sanctioning Democrats for the past behavior? Are they willing to hold the Adam Schiff’s in Congress accountable for their past lies which nearly destroyed our economy, immigration, and our culture of American exceptionalism?

We are so screwed.

KYLE RITTENHOUSE: DEFENSE SEEKS A MISTRIAL BEFORE THE JURY RETURNS

It is within the Judge’s discretion to declare a mistrial at any point in the case, including after a jury renders a verdict…

Once more, it appears that the Kenosha, Wisconsin Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger has played fast and loose with his arguments, statements, and evidence in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

dm-hdr

EXCLUSIVE: Kyle Rittenhouse prosecutors HELD BACK high-def drone footage of Kenosha shootings from defense and gave them low-quality video - sparking them to file mistrial motion that could see teen walk free

  • Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger initially shared low-quality drone footage from the night of the shooting with the defense
  • The defense claims Binger only shared the high-definition footage after evidence had closed on Saturday 
  • According to a motion filed today by the defense, ‘The problem is the prosecution gave the defense a compressed version of the video’
  • ‘What that means is the video provided to the defense was not as clear as the video kept by the state,’ the motion states
  • Lawyers for Rittenhouse filed their motion for a mistrial with prejudice based on this and several other grounds

The motion states, ‘As it relates to the compressed drone footage. The prosecution should be required to explain to the Court why they did not copy the footage for the defendant with the same quality as their copy.

‘The video footage has been at the center of this case. The idea that the state would provide lesser quality footage and then use that footage as a linchpin in their case is the very reason they requested and were granted the provocation instruction by the Court.’

Lawyers for Rittenhouse filed their motion for a mistrial with prejudice based on this and several other grounds.

They had already raised the issue of ‘prosecutorial misconduct’ and over-reach for Binger’s behavior when he ‘violated’ Rittenhouse’s constitutional right to remain silent by suggesting that he had done so that he could ‘tailor’ his story to fit the facts as they emerged during the trial. <Source>

Bottom line…

There is no doubt that Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger was looking for a high-profile case to try in the media to advance his ambitions for higher political office. This is a case of apparent self-defense and should have never been brought. The case has been terribly distorted in the media and may be the subject of defamation actions should Rittenhouse be cleared of the charges.

We are so screwed when our judicial system is falling apart from hyper-politicized police, prosecutors, and court officers.

CALIFORNIA CRAZINESS?

It is almost beyond belief that the corrupt communist democrats who rule, not govern, the State of California are hell-bent at eliminating oil drilling in California’s coastal and offshore areas – ostensibly protecting the environment but think nothing about drilling for lithium brine in a significant earthquake zone that could trigger a massive earthquake that could kill thousands of people and do billions of property damage.

lat-header

Drilling for ‘white gold’ is happening right now at the Salton Sea

Barely a mile from the southern shore of the Salton Sea — an accidental lake deep in the California desert, a place best known for dust and decay — a massive drill rig stands sentinel over some of the most closely watched ground in American energy.

There’s no oil or natural gas here, despite a cluster of Halliburton cement tanks and the hum of a generator slowly pushing a drill bit through thousands of feet of underground rock. Instead, an Australian company is preparing to tap a buried reservoir of salty, superheated water to produce renewable energy — and lithium, a crucial ingredient in electric car batteries.

The $500-million project is finally getting started after years of hype and headlines about the Imperial Valley someday becoming a powerhouse in the fight against climate change. The developer, Controlled Thermal Resources, began drilling its first lithium and geothermal power production well this month, backed by millions of dollars from investors including General Motors.

If the “Hell’s Kitchen” project succeeds — still a big “if” — it will be just the second commercial lithium producer in the United States. It will also generate clean electricity around the clock, unlike solar and wind farms that depend on the weather and time of day. <Source>

Salton Sea hazards include earthquakes and volcanoes… 

phys-org

Scientists focus on Salton Sea as possible earthquake risk

In a bit of coincidental news, no sooner had earthquake scientists posted warnings about the instability of the southern part of the San Andreas Fault hidden beneath the Salton Sea, than an earthquake struck; albeit it, a rather small one, in just that part of southern California. The study, by the Scripps Institute for Oceanography, just published in Nature Geoscience, points out the alarming fact that the fault beneath the Salton Sea has a track record of producing serious earthquakes with regularity every 180 years or so, but has now gone without producing one for 325.

The researchers also raise the question of whether the relatively recent creation of the lake might have altered the time-table of earthquakes in the region, as the massive weight of all that water sits atop the fault, possibly holding everything in place, until such forces become too great, which could of course mean, the area would be in for an earthquake of historical proportions, if it does finally give way. <Source>


Scientists Mystery of Salton Sea buttes solved; volcanoes now a worry

Earthquake swarms and a region-wide rotten egg smell recently reminded Southern California residents they live next to an active volcano field, tiny though it may be. Then, scientists said the phenomena did not reflect changes in the magma chamber below the Salton Sea. Now researchers may need to revise estimates of the potential hazard posed by the Salton Buttes — five volcanoes at the lake’s southern tip.

The lava source for the volcanoes is a magma chamber beneath the Salton Sea, which also heats water for a nearby geothermal plant. <Source>

Bottom line…

One might think that the environmentalists would have something to say about the earthquake danger rather than waffling on about ecological disasters caused by climate change and the shrinking lake. Something other than pumping millions of gallons of drinking water into the ocean to save a garbage fish.

We are so screwed.

KYLE RITTENHOUSE: MAY AMERICAN JUSTICE PREVAIL

It is now in the hands of the jury…

kyle

Unfortunately…

While the entire prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse was politically motivated and prosecutor by an attorney seeking media notoriety and a jump start in seeking higher office. Not only did the prosecuting attorney attempt to circumvent the U.S. Constitution and Second Amendment.

It appears that the Defense presented a weak closing argument that did not step the jury through the decision-making process to acquittal—leaving the jury with a puzzlement of poorly presented jury instructions, conflicting narratives, and the crap-shoot nature of the jury process itself.

Bottom line…

Hopefully, the progressive communist democrats and their violent rioting domestic terrorists will not chill the use of firearms as a reasonable means of self-defense.

We are so screwed.

RITTENHOUSE TRIAL: THOMAS BINGER WINS THE ALEC BALDWIN GUN HANDLING AWARD

Unbelievable…

While acting as the lead prosecution lawyer in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger held an AR-15-style rifle with his finger on the trigger and pointed it toward the jury in a courtroom demonstration.

kda-1

There is absolutely no excuse for any person to point a weapon, loaded or unloaded,  at another human being -- especially with their finger on the trigger – unless they mean to shoot the weapon.

This is a cheap lawyer’s trick to sensationalize the prosecution’s arguments and Binger needs to be heavily sanctioned by the Wisconsin State Bar for reckless behavior in a courtroom. If any jury member suffered a fatal heart attack, Binger could be tried for murder because the act was premeditated, and there was an apparent intent to make the jury uncomfortable.

Bottom line…

Thomas Binger’s bizarre trial antics were brought to a climax when he lied to the jury, saying, “You Lose the Right to Self-Defense When You’re the One Who Brought the Gun.” To believe that a person who lawfully carries a weapon for self-protection loses his constitutional rights or the right to assert a self-defense claim is ludicrous.

We are so screwed when progressive communist democrats seeking higher office grandstand in the courtroom or engage in politically-motivated show trials as a personal publicity vehicle for their political aspirations.
