Blinken Ordered the "Russian Disinformation" Claim by the CIA

Diane Kimura

A former acting CIA director has admitted to Congress that he organized the letter that falsely portrayed Hunter Biden's laptop as Russian disinformation in an effort to influence the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden and that he did so at the direction of current Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Cold Draft in Israel

Jerry S Rainforth

Past due, in my opinion.

"Three of the more conservative judges are presiding over the proceedings, and if you want to know which way the wind is blowing, just listen to the analysis given by Jerusalem Post reporter, Yonah Jeremy Bob. Stating that the three justices "were among the roughest and most aggressive critics of the government,” he sensed their aggravation with the government’s refusal to agree to the "IDF’s initial measure to take in a minimum of 3,000 Haredim (ultra-Orthodox) out of over 60,000 eligible draftees over the course of the 2024 recruitment class.

It’s easy to understand their emotionally angry response, because, as the reporter states, at a time "during an ongoing war that has taken the lives of around 1,500 Israelis, Haredim still feel that asking them to do the same service is oppression.”

In fact, these justices are not the only ones who are fed up with an entire sector of young, able-bodied men who don’t seem to appreciate the ultimate sacrifice others have made for them so that they can continue to study without feeling any obligation to share the load of defending the homeland for which they claim to be praying. "

Things are about to change in Israel

Wind Turbines Cause WArming

This from Lee B Langer at Zero Hedge Censored:

A Harvard study from 2020 found wind turbines will cause more warming in Minnesota than emissions reductions would avert.
"Wind turbines cause local temperature increases at the surface of the earth by causing air to mix throughout portions of the atmosphere...According to the study, wind turbines measuring between 100 and 150 meters (328ft to 498 ft) operating at night can pull down warmer air from as far as 1,640 feet in the air down to the surface, warming the surface of the earth, where it would impact the people, plants, and animals living near the turbines....the warming impact of wind turbines is immediate, and highly localized in the areas that are the "hosts” to the installations. ... surface temperatures in the United States increase more due to wind turbines mixing air in the atmosphere than would be offset by reducing emissions."

Puta Rubin's Vile Attack on Alito

Timothy Birdnow

This is disgraceful. Jennifer Rubin USED to be considered a Conservative too.

She is fit to be tied that Justice Sam Alito won't recuse himself from hearing the Trump immunity case because, drumroll please, he had a couple of unnamed flags flying at his home. The media has been very careful to not tell us what flags constitute "flaggate" because our tender sensibilities would be horrified, but they assure us they are the banners of MAGA Republicans and J6 insurrectionists. I suspect they include the American flag and the Gadsden "don't tread on me" flag.

The Horror!

Rubin gives us such dandies as these:

"Nevertheless, Alito’s response — in a letter to Durbin and Whitehouse, and in a Fox News interview — laying out his improbable version of events and asserting the constitutional right of his wife, Martha-Ann, to make her own flag-flying decisions, showed such unbridled arrogance as to suggest, as New York University law professor Melissa Murray put it, that he was "trolling” America."


"The implausibility of Alito’s account regarding the flag-flying (which contradicts the timeline reported in the New York Times) underscores the perils of unchecked judicial authority, not constrained by term limits or adequate ethical rules. (Meanwhile, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. flatly refused the two senators’ meeting request.) Congress, the executive branch and American voters have five non-mutually exclusive options for dealing with this matter."

(Since when do liberals worry about "unchecked judicial authority" and "adequate ethical rules"? Only when they don't get their way.)

She goes on to quote Impeachment manager Jamie Raskin, a frothing at the mouth partisan, as though he were a credible source.

Here's more:

"Raskin based his argument on both the due process clause of the 14th Amendment and 28 U.S.C. Section 455, the statutory mandate that a judge "shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” Presumably — but who knows?! — the two compromised justices would not consider the matter, leaving the other seven justices to rule on such a motion."

How is Alito or Thomas in any way biased here? You can't fly flags on your private property now?

"Although such an approach is important for educating the public about the manifest intellectual corruption of the court, it has two obvious flaws. To be blunt, fat chance getting Attorney General Merrick Garland to do it. This Justice Department is not known for its boldness, risk-taking or leadership."

??? She doesn't think raiding a former President's home with shoot to kill orders is bold? This woman is delusional.

"Still, it is worth pursuing (including the demand for Garland to do something), if for no other reason than to call attention to the two justices’ malfeasance and to Roberts’s singular lack of spine."

Malfeasance? Prosecuting Trump on these Trumped up charges is malfeasance you silly fool! Alito and Thomas are the polar opposite of malfeasance; they are a breath of sanity in a world gone mad.

She calls for Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, and for new ethics laws passed by Congress over the Supreme Court.

Now, I believe Rubin has a law degree, but even if she doesn't she must surely have taken a course in civics in school. The Supreme Court is a coequal branch of government and it sets it's own ethics rules. Congress has no authority over the internal workings of SCOTUS. None. They cannot do this. If they try the Court can tell them to go coitus themselves and make it stick. They can call one of the Justices before them and the Justice can choose to go or not; they have the same privilege as does the President in that regard. Congress cannot compel the President himself to appear before them either.

She shows her stupidity here:

'Third, as Whitehouse urged, the Senate should put on the floor his Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal and Transparency Act of 2023. It already passed through the Judiciary Committee. (Where is Majority Leader Sen. Charles E. Schumer?) This bill would "require Supreme Court Justices to adopt a code of conduct; create a mechanism to investigate alleged violations of the code of conduct and other laws; improve disclosure and transparency when a Justice has a connection to a party or amicus before the Court; and require Justices to explain their recusal decisions to the public.”'

And when this law is challenged, who does she think will hear it? Duh.

Here is the kicker:

"Fourth, if the two conflicted justices hear Trump’s immunity case, and if they concoct a mechanism that either extends absolute immunity to Trump or sets up a lower-court process making impossible a trial before the November election, Americans can and should engage in massive, peaceful demonstrations in defense of the rule of law. A president, let alone an ex-president, is not a king; partisan hacks in robes are still partisan hacks."

You heard it folks; she's calling for insurrection! What this Puta just said was almost identical to what Trump said on January six. It was insurrection then. Why isn't the FBI calling on Rubin and maybe charging her with attempting to overthrow the U.S. government by force?

Her hatred of Trump has driven her mad.

She is openly calling for Alito's impeachment at this point. For what? Not treating Chuck You Schumer with the proper deference? I didn't know that was a requisite for sitting on the Court. For refusing to quit when the Left shrieks?

And who will hear the impeachment trial? Come on Jenny; you know better than that.

She concludes:

"Alito and Thomas, coupled with Roberts’s clueless passivity and inability to exert ethical leadership, have plunged the Supreme Court into a crisis. But they have thereby opened the door to much-needed reforms that could restore the court’s luster. Defenders of the rule of law should grasp this historic opportunity to rehabilitate a faltering, increasingly disreputable institution."

No, it is the assaults on the rule of law by Democrats that have led to this, and it is the efforts of the Conservatives on the Court to restore the rule of law that so enrages these people. She knows it too. Vile, dishonest woman!

P.S. It turns out Alito flew an upside down U.S. flag after Trump's conviction and an "appeal to Heaven" flag over his beachhouse. The horror!

Excess Deaths from Covid Vax

Timothy Birdnow

Three million excess deaths from the Covid shot, according to the notoriously liberal Yahoo News.

Researchers from The Netherlands analysed data from 47 Western countries and discovered there had been more than three million excess deaths since 2020, with the trend continuing despite the rollout of vaccines and containment measures.

They said the "unprecedented” figures "raised serious concerns” and called on governments to fully investigate the underlying causes, including possible vaccine harms.

Writing in the BMJ Public Health, the authors from Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, said: "Although Covid-19 vaccines were provided to guard civilians from suffering morbidity and mortality by the Covid-19 virus, suspected adverse events have been documented as well.

"Both medical professionals and citizens have reported serious injuries and deaths following vaccination to various official databases in the Western World.”

So when is Fauci and the others who demanded this going to be charged with crimes against humanity? Anyone?

"Hush Money" Trial Violated FirstAmendment

Timothy Birdnow

Steve Calabrese argues that the Supreme Court will toss Trump's conviction based on the First Amendment in a piece at Reason today.

Read it here.

As Calabrese argues, the First Amendment makes "hush money" payments entirely legal for Mr. Trump (perhaps less so for Stormy Daniels, who was blackmailing the Orange Menace.)


Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg alleged that the documents were allegedly falsely altered to conceal a contribution of money in violation of federal campaign finance laws or in pursuance of winning the 2016 election by defrauding the voters of information they had a right to know. Neither argument passes First Amendment scrutiny.

The federal campaign finance laws were partially upheld in Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1 (1976). In that case, campaign expenditure limits were ruled to be flatly unconstitutional as a violation of the First Amendment's protection of freedom of speech. Under Buckley v. Valeo, an individual like Donald Trump can spend an unlimited amount of his own money promoting his own campaign. But, the Supreme Court in Buckley did uphold contribution limits on how much an individual or a group could contribute to influence an election. Alvin Bragg argues that the Trump organization's contribution of $130,000 to pay Stormy Daniels hush money exceeded federal campaign finance limits on contributions. The federal government itself has adopted a policy of not prosecuting hush money payments as illegal campaign contributions in the wake of its embarrassing loss of such a prosecution brought against Democratic Vice Presidential contender John Edwards. Edwards had paid hush money during the 2004 presidential election to a mistress with who he had had a child out of wedlock.

In 2010, in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 310, the Supreme Court held 5 to 4 that the freedom of speech clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent expenditures for political campaigns by closely allied corporations and groups like The Trump Organization. Under Citizens United, it was perfectly legal for The Trump Organization to pay Daniels $130,000 in hush money to conceal her alleged affair with Donald Trump.

The opinion in Citizens United was written by former Justice, and liberal icon, Anthony M. Kennedy, and it was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Justice Clarence Thomas, and Justice Samuel Alito all three of whom are still on the Supreme Court. Given the Court's current membership, it is highly likely that the outcome in Citizens United would prevail again today by a vote of 6 to 3. If Buckley v. Valeo was argued to be an obstacle to Trump prevailing, the Supreme Court would today, in 2024, and should today, in 2024, overrule the campaign finance contribution limits of federal election law as violations of the freedom of speech. Groups contributing to election campaigns can pay for advertising to promote candidates, and they can also pay hush money to keep bad or false stories out of the news. The effect either way is to help the candidate. You can contribute money to generate good publicity. And, you can contribute money to avoid bad publicity. The First Amendment protects freedom of speech in both cases.

Campaign finance limits prevent speech by people who want to engage in it. They have changed Congress so badly that today Members of Congress spend 70% of their time raising money rather then legislating or meeting with their constituents because of absurdly low campaign finance limits that have not been adequately raised to match inflation since those laws were enacted in the 1970's. The post-Watergate campaign finance laws were and always have been flagrantly unconstitutional in their totality.

The Price of Real Estate

Steven Roten

According to HUD, when I bought my 1st home in 1988 the average cost of a home in the US was $132,400. According to the Dept of Labor the average wage was $13,120 or 11.7% of the average cost of a home.

In 2023 the average cost of a home in the US was $426,056. The average wage was $59,384 or 13.9% of the cost of the average home.

The interest rates were much higher in 1988 then they are now.

All of this whining when todays wage represents over 2% more of the cost of the house not even considering the difference in interest rates? Even with today's Briben interest rates the sacrifice young people would have to make to buy a home is roughly the same as it was then.

Want to know the difference? Starbucks. Entitlement. Inability to defer gratification. Unwillingness to sacrifice to achieve goals. And our failure as parents! NOT ONE OTHER THING!

Time to grow up children and quit your whining! This is reality and always has been.

Fair is Foul

Joanne Moen-Yarwood

We our entering Pride Month ,when the Pride flag flies over so many businesses and also churches .When is Pride a virtual ? We know LGBTQ and inthe beginning BLM was a part of Pride too .3 per cent of the population may have fallen under Pride at one time ,it’s proably more now as transgender has become a pushing gender by the WOKe Thinking .The medical has very much made big money out of encouraging this thinking along with education .But wait has anybody looked at the facts coming out that finding a better gender solves your youths problems .? Many studies including s the UCLa School at Los Angles has announced 40% of trans in the US has attempted suicide or taken somebody else’s life in their struggle .I am not sure Pride is to be celebrated with parades of young children waving Pride flags and half dressed participants showing off their gender pride .But in return it’s an individual right ,but when it’s pushed as a flag to wave even over the capital ,it’s going to far .

Tim adds:

Time we start a Christian Pride Month, and a Jewish Pride Month. I'm sick to death of watching a small minority of the population get everyone kowtowing to them. Especially as the lifestyles of both homosexauals and transgendered are horribly unhealthy and emotionally destructive. There was a time we thought of them as wrong, morally corrupt. Now being a Christian is considered wrong and morally corrupt. How didthat happen? High time we swung the pendulum back. Even if Christianity and Judaism are wrong they do nothing to hurt their adherents, either physically or emotionally.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young gays, and while most gays blame it on societal disapproval the fact is those numbers have not come down even though it is not just acceptable to be gay now but actually is chic among the younger generation. Gays are five times more likely to committ suicide than straights.

But it is never suggested that the depression and suicidal tendencies may be from a guilty conscience; it is always blamed on societal disapproval. Well, why do they think society disapproves? What skin is it off anyone's noses? Society disapproves precisely BECAUSE it is an unhealthy, destructive, soul-killing practice.

Gays are far more likely to contract venereal diseases than straights. They also have a plethora of other illnesses rarely seen in straight people - like gay bowel syndrome which is a result of infections entering via torn rectums.

So it is psychologically destructive and physically damaging. I didn't even bother to mention SPIRITUALLY destructive. In 1Corinthians 6:9 the Bible tells us "Neither homosexuals, nor the effeminate (trans) shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven". In Leviticus 20:13 it says ""And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." .There are many more examples and you can find them yourself.

Yet now we have a whole month to "celebrate" sodomy as if it were a virtue. And everyone is compelled to join in the festivities. We have pride parades and pride days and rainbow flags touting the glories of sodomy.

It started out as "tolerance" and now if you do not actively support a dude taking another man's penis up his rectum you are somehow a bigot. But it's fine to attack Christians all you like, mock them, jeer at them, and suppress Christian thought and teaching.

I assure you if anyone really did promote a Christian Pride Month they would be attacked as evil bigots.

It's like the witches in MacBeth; fair is foul and foul is fair. And still America won't repent of her sorceries and deviltry. Is it any wonder things are falling apart?

Comes the Fall

Boris Osipian

In his philosophical and historical treatise "Reflections on the Causes of the Greatness and Fall of the Romans", Ch. Montesquieu noted the following natural social movements and transformations: "Rome was in a state of continuous and brutal war; but a nation that is constantly waging war, a nation in which war serves as the principle of government, must inevitably perish or triumph over by all other nations, which, both in time of war and in time of peace, are not so adapted to waging offensive or defensive war. ... The fate of almost all peoples in the world consisted in the transition too quickly from poverty to wealth and from wealth to spiritual and moral corruption. ... During the short tyranny of the Decemvirs, it was clearly revealed to what extent the greatness of Rome was connected with its freedom. It's as if the state has lost the soul that inspired it." Thus, any prudent people, developing from generation to generation, must, for their self-preservation, like the apple of their eye, protect their God-given dignity and destiny, freedom and responsibility before God the Creator and other peoples of the world; otherwise, he will lose his spiritual face, soul and the opportunity for his long-term prosperity, as well as meaningful and useful fruiting for other peoples and all mankind.

Trump and the Black Vote

Lance Sjogren

The abuse of the legal system by New York in an attempt to rig the 2024 election so far has benefitted Trump as far as fundraising, but what effect has it had on voter sentiment? We should have new polls within a few days that begin to show one way or another.

One thing to watch for is the opinion of African Americans. Clearly, one of the key factors in Trump's rise from the traditionally under 10% support of African Americans for Republicans to recent polls showing him with support in the 20+% range, is that many black men liken the treatment of Trump to the way African Americans suffered abuse by the legal system in US history. I would imagine the fact that Trump passed legislation to undo the "lock em up and throw away the key" crime policies passed by Bill Clinton, is one of the factors that has led to this shift of sentiment. (incidentally, Obama didn't lift a finger on this issue.) Will the massive escalation in abuse of Trump by the legal system increase this trend, or will it fade away as we get closer to the election. (You can bet the Democrats will be race-baiting like crazy over the next months in order to attempt to reverse the trend.

We shall see.

Tim adds:

Joe Biden wrote the nineties crime bill signed by Bill Clinton that has led to so many incarcerations. Black folks largey overlooked that, but now they see the guy who eased it up being treated like one of hem. I think Trump is going to do very well with black pepple in this election. Were I he I would go to black communities and make that case, that they persecute him and linki it to Biden's authoring the crime bill.

The Verdict

Doug Thornburn

I will post below a number of articles taking a look at the travesty of justice we witnessed yesterday, from a variety of different writers with vastly varied backgrounds. They make an interesting bunch, and they each have a take on the events you likely haven't thought of.

Just remember: yesterday was the single most important day in American jurisprudence, because it gave us proof that those who do not toe the line can be taken out. You, my dear friends, are next.

This writer and author of several fiction and non-fiction books, John Leake, discusses Arthur Koestler's book on the Soviet "show trials" of 1938-1940, portrayed in "Darkness at Noon," which we found yesterday can happen in the land of the formerly free.

One quote from the article: "How could any adult citizen of this country be so childish to think that personal animus can justify such blatant politicization of the judiciary?" And yes, I apparently--and sadly--have childish friends.

The Banana Republic Mind

An ordinary mom who voted for Hillary in 2016 and who was distraught when she lost, Etana Hecht, writes: "Dark authoritarian and tyrannical forces are openly and proudly demanding more power and receiving it from a weak Western world, so obsessed with tolerance that their brains fell out."

The Global Tipping Point

Eugyppius, who writes about the total failure of policy, medicine and science, observes America from across the pond in Germany. He writes: "The naked political motivations of the prosecution are so obvious that they preempt all possible commentary."

Trump Guilty Verdict Open Thread

Novelist Michael Giere writes: "The new world order wants compliance, not justice....Using the corrupt legal system against political opponents is only the first step. The use or even the threat of legal annihilation of citizens is the goal. Suppose your objective is to cow the population into submission on public policy or personal finances. What better way than to...threaten and jail anyone who causes trouble or sticks their head up. (Next will be the assault and replacement of county sheriffs nationwide.)" He's a brilliant and woefully underfollowed writer.

It’s Not Just Trump – They’re Coming After You

Zero Hedge's Tyler Durden quotes Democrat lawyer Jonathan Turley: ""Merchan just delivered the coup de grace instruction," Turley wrote on X. "He said that there is no need to agree on what occurred. They can disagree on what the crime was among the three choices. Thus, this means that they could split 4-4-4 and he will still treat them as unanimous..."" The comments, which are rife with gems on many of the posts linked above and below, must be accessed near the bottom of the screen "open comments."

"This Is Insanity": Judge In Trump Case Issues Unbelievable Jury Instructions

Lawyer, writer, researcher and investigative journalist Techno Fog explains: "You can read all 55 pages of the jury instructions here. They’re complex (even for lawyers)....these instructions weren’t given to the jury."

One of the commenters agrees with me. I'm sure she's among many: "There will be so many people celebrating this, and they have no idea how terrifying all this crap should be. Doesn’t matter if you love him or hate him, this kind of lawfare will be coming for EVERYONE."

The Trump Verdict: Guilty

John Leake again, this time on one of the signal events that led to Hitler taking absolute power. Writing about the "Historic event reminiscent of Blomberg–Fritsch Affair in Germany in 1938:....Increasingly I wonder if Congressmen are being blackmailed by an operator reminiscent of the evil genius Reinhard Heydrich, who amassed files on everyone who could potentially oppose the regime."

My biggest concern as Ely, a chiropractor and brilliant outside-the-box thinker puts it is, "There is something much bigger going on."

Free the Captives?

Ellen Toever

From Avi Abelow from #ISRAEL:
"In 2011, there was a tremendous pr campaign in Israel to pressure Netanyahu to release over 1,000 Hamas terrorists in order to free captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Netanyahu was at first against the deal, as was half of the country, including myself, because we understood that in exchange for freeing one life, the deal would be lead to the deaths of many more innocent Jews in Israel.

Unfortunately, we were proven correct.

An organization called Torat Lechima recently put together the most accurate statistics regarding the impact of that Shalit deal.

In the Shalit deal, 1,027 terrorists were released. 500 innocent Jews were murdered by some of those released terrorists before Simchat Torah, Oct. 7th, 2023. And some of them returned to senior positions in Hamas, like Sinwar, the head of Hamas in Gaza responsible for the Oct. 7th massacre.

That means, over 1,700 innocent lives were lost because of a massive pr campaign to save Gilad Shalit, which impacted Netanyahu to change his mind and agree to the horrible deal, a deal that the media today blames on Netanyahu, forgetting how they were an active part of the of campaign to pressure Netanyahu to change his mind and agree to the deal.

Today, we are faced with the same dilemma.

Is releasing terrorists who will return to return the right thing to do to save some lives, when it means many more people will be killed as a result.

This is not a simple issue and it becomes even more complex when the Torah actually says that if paying a ransom to free captives, endangers more people to be potentially kidnapped, then the ransom should not be paid to free the captives.

While the commandment of freeing captives is one of the most important, it is not a zero-sum situation.

The only solution to this situation would be killing all the release terrorists in Gaza after releasing them from prison. However, based on my knowledge of the leadership we have today, they, unfortunately, wouldn’t do that."

The Pucillanimous GOP

Timothy Birdnow

I caught Republican House Squeeker Mike "tiny" Johnson on Fox News Sunday this morning. When host Shannon Bream asked him about responding in kind to Democratic lawfare he answered:

"we are the party of the Rule of Law. We don't do that."

(Not an exact quote.)

He then went on to say the remedy is Congressional investigations.


The monumental stupidity of the GOP Establishment never ceases to amaze me. Congressional investigations only uncover criminal activity, and if they find something they have to go to the Justice Department for redress. Who controls the Justice Department? Does the well-named Johnson think Merrick Garland will follow up on anything they uncover? The House doesn't have enforcement abilities.

And this assumes they will control the House after the next election, something not at all certain.

And this only addresses one particular abuse by one particular prosecutor at a time. The Democrats can choose the time and place for their attacks and simply keep handing the baton to new players. It's a game of cat and mouse and the mice always lose.

And as these were done at the state level in the case of the Trump convictions the House has little authority over it. Legal matters in the states are legal matters in the states by and large.

It is axiomatic that the aggressors set the rules of engagement and we have been in an asymmetric war for a long time now. Anybody remember Ted Stevens, former U.S. Senator from Alaska? He was taken out with a bogus prosecution quite similar to the one they just ran on Trump. The GOP let them get away with it; there was no retaliation for Stevens back then. Investigations into the behavior of the prosecution slammed it, and the presiding judge found the prosecution in contempt for it, but it didn't matter; they took Stevens out. He died shortly thereafter.

If this didn't deter them what would?

A more recent case was here in Missouri where a Soros-funded radical Circuit Attorney (Prosecutor) named Kim Gardner led a crusade to take out the Republican Governor Eric Greitens on charges revolving around his affair with a woman and his taking photographs of her. Gardner violated multiple ethics and legal standards, hiring a private investigator rather than using the police, and she suppressed evidence and committed perjury in court, yet the judge let her get away with it. So did the GOP. In the end Greitens resigned and Gardner remained as part of the agreement she made with the Republicans. (Gardner would later resign before being forced out on unrelated issues of corruption and dereliction of duty, and is currently on the lam to avoid being forced to testify in an investigation on some, uh, creative accounting in her former office.)

In both of these incidents the GOP refused to respond.

This pattern of behavior goes all the way back to Richard Nixon's tenure of office. The Democrats systematically removed his people, including his Vice President Spirow Agnew, over often baseless charges of corruption. Eventually they were ready to impeach Nixon and he resigned. They then followed up with Reagan, taking out numerous Reagan cabinet members in the same way, including some really good people like Interior Secretary James Watts. Oh, and don't forget what they did to Robert Bork, Reagan's pick for SCOTUS.

And don't forget what they did to Clarence Thomas. And Brett Kavanagh.

This is a pattern of behavior and it has now reached the point where they are openly tampering with an election and attempting to put the Republican candidate and former President in prison. And STILL Mike Johnson doesn't think we should retaliate.

At what point will Johnson and the rest realize that they are in a war and losing?

The Democrats followed the playbook, sending multiple Trump aids to prison or charging them with crimes, including people like the former hero of New York, Rudy Giulliani. They have systematically abused the law to go after Trump's hands, and now they are after Mr. Trump himself. And don't forget they sent all the protesters at the certification of Biden on January 6, 2021 to prison and STILL they hunt for anyone who was there. Many of these folks have gotten decades for attending a protest against a stolen election.

When is it time to fight fire with fire in Johnson's mind? At what point do we say "ENOUGH!"?

This is how Communists took over the countries in Eastern Europe. They strongarmed the opposition out of power and used the law to destroy their enemies. Yet now the GOP is full of doves unwilling to use the same weapons as those who are not just their enemies but the enemies of the American People and the Constitution.

If the GOP fails to strike back then they will wither away as did the Whig Party. There is no reason for their existence if they don't take a stand. I'll vote for the Constitution Party next election if it comes to that.

Mike Johnson has become as big a disaster for Republicans as was Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan, and John Boehner.

While we're discussing it, anybody remember Bill Clinton and his 900 raw FBI files? The Republicans were terrified of Clinton and no doubt for good reason. Trent Lott ran a farce of a trial when Clinton was impeached; he didn't allow many witnesses, including Betty Curry, Clinton's chief secretary,the woman who knew where all the bodes were buried. BTW Clinton had tried to buy off several of the women who accused him and nobody said that was "election tampering" then. Clinton even got Monica Lewinsky a job out of town (a real job, not that kind of job) and nobody tried to prosecute him then. But the fact remains Clinton had a private investigator working for him, and undoubtedly was blackmailing Republicans.

When Newt Gingrich stepped down as Speaker he was replaced by Dennis Hastert, a pedophile who was paying blackmail money to his victim. Does anyone believe Clinton didn't know that when he was in office, or any Democrat? It was why Hastert was so ineffectual; he dared not fight lest he be outed.

The Democrats have been using these kinds of tactics for decades and there has been no Republican response. At the same time the Nation has made a long, horrible slide into the cesspool of leftism and degeneracy. The two are linked.

If Johnson is too squimish to do what must be done at this point he needs to step aside and let someone with the stones to do it take charge. Many women in the GOP have more gonads than does the eunuch Johnson.

If we won't fight back now we never will. And we are done if we don't.

A Jury of His Jeers

Murray Stewart

So just a look at what the democrats believe is a jury by your peers.

Biden supposedly got over 81 million or 51.3% of the votes in 2020

Trump got over 74 million votes or 46.8% of the vote.

(Biden had more mail in ballots which I question the validity of signatures on many of them. Trump had more in person votes)

How were those votes spread out?

The first picture is country wide. Lots of red in the rural areas and lots of blue mixed around the urban areas. Over all pretty well mixed

The second picture is closer around NY, New Jersey etc. Still a mix of colours but really showing some distinct patterns.

we go in closer of the third picture around Manhattan. All blue.

Then the forth picture shows the area of Chelsea and surrounding suburbs where the entire jury pool was drawn from.

Absolutely DARK BLUE where they voted 92% for Biden.

How is that a jury of peers.

How does a 92% democrat vote represent America.

No, just like the selection of the judge, even the jury pool was rigged to get a guilty verdict.

And that can be seen as to how weak the prosecutors case was.

it didn't matter what evidence was presented, it didn't matter that there wasn't even a crime.

It was always going to be a guilty verdict.

Roy W. Spencer

journalist in FL giving up due to that state's "mutant strain of populism"

Florida columnist retires after claiming state has become ‘gay-bashing authoritarian dystopia’

If you are against "populism" and don't want to "make America great again", you might want to consider a different country based upon your non-traditional values.

Tim adds:

Amen. Populism is nothing more than an appeal to the public as opposed to elites - precisely what we supposedly have with a democratic republic. I remember a time when the Democratic party promoted this as "democracy". Now they act as if it is a dirty word. Populism is nothing more than advocating for what the public wants.

And everyone wanted to make America great. How can anyone in their right mind oppose such a thing? By comparison I suppose they want to Make America Suck Again. (MASA) So we should say to the media types who want to Make America Suck Again "yes Masa!"

If you so hate American exceptionalism and a government by the People for the People and of the People then perhaps America isn't your cup of coffee (we dumped the tea in Boston Harbor long ago.)
