Massive Discovery In Arizona Database…Could Flip AZ Election Overnight
September 20, 2021

​*** begin quote ***

In the last 10 weeks, Arizona has checked the voter registration credentials with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on 673,560 applicants.

This is a massive volume considering most States including Arizona typically process around 2,500 a month. They’ve processed more identities in the last 2 months than they’ve done in the last 9 years combined. Is someone scrubbing a database, or auditing “Federal Only” voters?

A whopping 393,017 did not have a match out of the 673,560. In fact, Arizona weekly processing has one of the highest Non Match percentages in the country, typically between 50%-65%. In most other States this ratio is from 15%-25%.

Shockingly, CDC Now Lists Vaccinated Deaths as Unvaccinated
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
September 15, 2021

*** begin quote ***

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, you’re not counted as fully vaccinated until a full 14 days have passed since your second injection in the case of Pfizer or Moderna, or 14 days after your first dose of Janssen, despite the fact that over 80% of deaths after the vaccines occur in this window. How convenient
  • Anyone who dies within the first 14 days post-injection is counted as an unvaccinated death. Not only does this inaccurately inflate the unvaccinated death toll, but it also hides the real dangers of the COVID shots, as the vast majority of deaths from these shots occur within the first two weeks
  • The CDC also has two different sets of testing guidelines — one for vaccinated patients and another for the unvaccinated. If you’re unvaccinated, CDC guidance says to use a cycle threshold (CT) of 40, known to result in false positives. If you’re vaccinated, they recommend using a CT of 28 or less, which minimizes the risk of false positives
  • The CDC also hides vaccine failures and props up the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” narrative by only counting breakthrough cases that result in hospitalization or death
  • Hospitals are still also reporting non-COVID related illnesses as COVID-19

Two Key Senior FDA Officials Resign Over Vaccine Decisions
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

*** begin quote ***

While the resignations of Gruber and Krause might indicate to some that the COVID boosters have a political foundation rather than a scientific one, concerns over FDA misconduct have been present for over a year.

In a June 2021 DarkHorse interview,12 the inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine core platform technology,13 Dr. Robert Malone, said he’d warned the FDA that the spike protein — which the COVID-19 “vaccines” instruct your cells to make — could be dangerous.

The FDA dismissed his concerns, saying they did not believe the spike protein was biologically active. Besides, the vaccine makers specifically designed the injections so the spike protein would stick and not float about freely.

Well, they were wrong on both accounts. It’s since been well-established that, indeed, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein gets free,14 and that it is biologically active and causes severe problems.

Fact-Checking 9 Major Biden Claims About Retreat From Afghanistan
Fred Lucas / @FredLucasWH / August 31, 2021

*** begin quote ***

1. Trump ‘Made a Deal’ With Taliban

Biden repeatedly said that he was bound by the February 2020 agreement between the Trump administration and the Taliban that the U.S. would exit Afghanistan. Many Republicans are among those who criticized the Trump deal with the Taliban. 

Biden said again Tuesday that when he came into office, the Taliban was in the strongest position it had been in since 2001 because of a deal with the Trump administration specifying that the U.S. would pull out by May 1. 

“The previous administration’s agreement said that if we stuck to the May 1 deadline that we had signed on to leave by, the Taliban wouldn’t attack any American forces, but if we stay, all bets were off,” Biden said during his national address from the State Dining Room of the White House, adding:

So, we were left with a simple decision, either follow through the commitment made by the last administration and leave Afghanistan or say we weren’t leaving and commit another tens of thousands more troops going back to war. That was the choice, the real choice.
During his brief press conference last Thursday after the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, Biden, responding to Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, said he bears responsibility. 

But he also blamed his predecessor, Donald Trump. 

“You know as well as I do that the former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all of the American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1,” Biden said. “In return … he was given a commitment that the Taliban would continue to attack others, but would not attack any American forces. Remember that?”

And then you’re going to see the torches and pitchforks come out in a serious fashion.

Fred Lucas / @FredLucasWH / July 13, 2021

6. Supreme Court ‘Weakened Voting Rights Act’

Last week, Biden also said, “the Supreme Court once again weakened the Voting Rights Act.”

“The court’s decision—as harmful as it is—does not limit the Congress’ ability to repair the damage done,” he said. “It puts the burden back on Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act to its intended strength.”

The high court ruled 6-3 in the case of Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee to uphold a law preventing ballot harvesting and requiring residents to vote in their home precinct. 

The high court did not weaken the Voting Rights Act, as the president said, but determined that two provisions of Arizona state law in question did not violate it. 

One requirement specifies that a ballot cast by someone on Election Day will not be counted if cast outside of that person’s assigned precinct. The other stipulates that only an election official, mail carrier, or a voter’s relative, household member, or caregiver may collect and deliver someone else’s mail-in ballot.

Turley: Why Giuliani’s Suspension Should Worry All Lawyers
BY TYLER DURDEN
MONDAY, JUN 28, 2021 – 12:00 PM
Authored by Jonathan Turley,

  • Below is my column in The Hill on the suspension of Rudy Giuliani by the New York Bar. The widespread hatred for Giuliani may be blinding many to the more troubling aspects of the opinion by the New York Supreme Court.

*** begin quote ***

This week, New York’s Supreme Court took the extraordinary step of suspending Rudy Giuliani, former federal prosecutor and counsel to former President Trump, from practicing law. As a long-standing critic of Giuliani for his baffling, self-defeating and at times bizarre statements, I found the action was, on some level, reaffirming.

However, the fluid standard applied in Giuliani’s case raises serious concerns over how and when such suspensions will be imposed against lawyers in public controversies. Indeed, the Giuliani standard would seem to implicate a wide array of attorneys who straddle the line of legal and political advocacy.

*** and ***

The concern in this case is that we are seeing a weaponization of bar investigations after a wide (and well-funded) campaign to harass Republican lawyers, their firms and their clients after the 2020 election. And it has worked: Many law firms are unwilling to take on Republican or conservative causes for fear of being targeted.

The Giuliani opinion fuels those concerns. Despite a damning account of exaggerations and falsehoods, it often reads more like a venting — rather than a vetting — of grievances against Giuliani. Instead of issuing a well-deserved reprimand, the court declared Giuliani to be a public menace if allowed to continue practicing law, even for the period of his own adjudication. The premature suspension made little sense. The bar was focused on Giuliani’s public statements, which will continue unabated by any suspension.

Nevertheless, the suspension thrilled many in today’s bloodsport politics. Yet while the court seemed to apply a special “Giuliani rule,” it is unlikely to stay that way if — to paraphrase Carl von Clausewitz — the bar becomes “nothing but a continuation of politics by other means.”

Seems like EVERYTHING has become political.

With different standards if you’re of the “wrong” political party.

Sounds like the NY Bar needs to get a slap down by SCOTUS!

POLITICAL: Fauci resisted Trump directive to cancel virus research grant

 

 

Fauci resisted Trump directive to cancel virus research grant linked to Wuhan lab, new book says
Excerpts from the book, “Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History,” are being released.
By Nicholas Sherman
Updated: June 24, 2021 – 3:40pm

*** begin quote ***

Trump issued a directive to Fauci and the National Institutes of Health in April 2020 to cut funding for a study examining how coronaviruses jump from infected bats to humans after it was reportedly linked to the lab in Wuhan, suspected of having leaked the virus.

The exchange between Fauci and the White House is detailed in an upcoming book by Washington Post reporters Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta called “Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History,” according to Fox News.

The study’s sponsor, EcoHealth Alliance, was then told to end the remaining $369,819 balance of its 2020 grant.

According to the book, on April 2020, Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins received notice that Trump wanted to cancel the grant. Fauci and Collins resisted, telling the White House they “were not sure the NIH actually had the authority to terminate a peer-reviewed grant in the middle of a budget cycle.” 

“The HHS general counsel told them to do it anyway and made clear it was a direct order from the president, implying that their jobs were on the line if they didn’t comply. Fauci and Collins reluctantly agreed to cancel the grant,” an excerpt of the book reads.

So why weren’t they fired immediately.  Did DJT45 learn nothing from his time on “The Apprentice”?

*** begin quote ***

I know you like “listener suggestions. (I hope you’ll consider this.)

The 17th Amendment to directly elect senators, imho, after the Income Tax Amendment, was the single most destructive Amendment to the “American Experiment”. It destroyed the ability of the States to resist “unfunded mandates” and allowed “carpet baggers” like Hillary Clinton an easy path to high elective office.

Personally, I’d love to see it repealed but doubt it’ll ever happen in my lifetime. Those, who want to get the money out of politics, could do it quickly by its repeal.

As a retired fat old white guy injineer that studied a lot of “systems”, I think it merely duplicates the House of Representative while “neutering” the State legislatures. If the 17th can NOT be repealed, then I’d just eliminate the House completely and save all that money.

I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on this topic.

6 Apr 2021

*** begin quote ***

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has erased a report that detailed illegal aliens on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Terrorism Watch List and No-Fly List crossing the United States-Mexico border.

On Monday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency published a press release detailing Border Patrol agents’ apprehension of two illegal aliens from Yemen who are on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List and the No-Fly List.“Two Yemeni Men Arrested by Border Patrol Identified on the FBI’s Terrorism Watch List,” the title of the CBP press release read. By Tuesday morning, though, the release had been removed from the CBP website and has not been republished.

A link to the original press release shows up as an “Access Denied” page with a note stating “You are not authorized to access this page.”

A CBP spokesperson told Breitbart News in a statement:

The news release in question was not properly reviewed and contained certain disclosure and policy information related to national security that required CBP to remove it from our website.

School Choice Is on The Move. Is It Too Late?
By Neal McCluskey

*** begin quote ***

Unfortunately, private schools have suffered for over a century from a chronic threat to their health that has been the underlying condition in numerous COVID-19 losses: they have had to compete against “free” public schools that receive large taxpayer subsidies. And as the chart below shows, such subsidies have been growing for decades.

Given the massive problem of having to convince people to pay twice for education – first taxes for public schools, then tuition – it is not surprising that the nation has lost at least 133 private schools, enrolling around 21,000 students, due to the economic effects of COVID-19. Most had been suffering from serious financial ailments long before that.

*** end quote ***

In the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, Gooferment Skrules have a ruinous effect on property taxes.  The Teachers’ Union runs the State and unlikely to change.  If we could KILL the whole concept of “free” “public” “education”.

Maybe if the First Amendment argument could ever get traction, then we could convince a court that the teaching of “secularism” amounts to teaching the worship of the Gooferment as a state “religion”.

Financially, “free public education” is a killer from a real estate tax perspective.

The political influencie of the Teachers’ Union is an anti-democratic tour de force. Given the inbreeding of teachers and politicians “We, The Sheeple” can never be free of these parasites.

*** begin quote ***

Andrew Cuomo completely mismanaged the COVID crisis. His ineptitude caused the deaths of thousands of elderly. He ordered nursing homes to accept COVID positive patients and sounded very crass

“Older people, vulnerable people, are going to die from this virus,” Cuomo added. “That is going to happen despite whatever you do, with all our progress as a society, we can’t keep everyone alive. Older people are more vulnerable.  That is a fact that is not going to change.”

Worse, he lied about it.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide confessed privately this week that the administration suppressed the true COVID toll in the homes. She also offered an apology — not to the thousands of New York families who needlessly lost loved ones thanks to her boss’s mismanagement but to Democratic lawmakers put in a difficult “political position with the Republicans” by the coverup.

Then he became dismissive about the elderly deaths

“New York State, we’re only about 28%, only, but we’re below the national average in number of deaths in nursing homes — but who cares?” he asked. “Thirty-three, twenty-eight, died in a hospital, died in a nursing home, they died.”

*** end quote ***

Personally, I am surprised that the coverup of the NY nursing home deaths hasn’t drawn its own criticism.

Isn’t the saying “It’s not the crime, but the coverup”?

AND, I’m also absolutely flabbergasted that there has NOT been and avalanche of wrongful death suits against all involved.  Guess the ambulance chasers are afraid of reprisals from the politicians and bureaucrats!

Although the previous rule was clearly not working, since the deficit was booming regardless of which party was in control of the House, “the symbolism here is obvious and will allow Democrats to offer budget-busting legislation on a wide array of dangerous progressive priorities without concern for the long-term fiscal ramifications,” the editorial stated.

POLITICAL: It’s official; the USA is an oligarchy

The Threat of Authoritarianism in the U.S. is Very Real, and Has Nothing To Do With Trump
The COVID-driven centralization of economic power and information control in the hands of a few corporate monopolies poses enduring threats to political freedom.

Whether the U.S. was a democracy in any meaningful sense prior to Trump had been the subject of substantial scholarly debate. A much-discussed 2014 study concluded that economic power has become so concentrated in the hands of such a small number of U.S. corporate giants and mega-billionaires, and that this concentration in economic power has ushered in virtually unchallengeable political power in their hands and virtually none in anyone else’s, that the U.S. more resembles oligarchy than anything else:

In fact, that is the first reform states need: requiring a government-issued photo ID to vote not just in-person as in Georgia and Indiana, but also for absentee ballots, as is the law in Kansas and Alabama. That includes providing an ID at no charge for the tiny percentage of the residents of their states who don’t already have one. And states need to modify their driver’s licenses, which are the default national ID card used by the average American every day for many different purposes besides voting, to conspicuously note whether the individual is a citizen or not.

Sorry, but if this MINIMAL precaution is NOT implemented, then why trust ANY election!

POLITICAL: Will SCOTUS punt or stand up for honest elections

Can the Supreme Court Unite to “Decimate” Texas’ Original Jurisdiction Case?
 — Could the Chief bring everyone together for a single merits ruling in a short time?
JOSH BLACKMAN | 12.11.2020 5:35 PM

Tom Goldstein writes that the Supreme Court should do more than dismiss Texas’s original jurisdiction case in a summary order. He says that the Supreme Court should “decimate” the motion with a written opinion.

It is perfectly ordinary and appropriate for the justices to write an opinion explaining the various reasons why they are rejecting Texas’ request. . . A simple five-page per curiam opinion genuinely could end up in the pantheon of all-time most significant rulings in American history. Every once in a long while, the court needs to invest some of its accumulated capital in issuing judgments that are not only legally right but also respond to imminent, tangible threats to the nation. That is particularly appropriate when, as here, the court finds itself being used as a tool to actively undermine faith in our democratic institutions — including by the members of the court’s bar on whom the justices depend to act much more responsibly.

Disclaimer: I’m not any kind of a lawyer. As a little L libertarian, I don’t like either the d’s or the R’s, but I have followed the anecdotal stories and the statistical analysis of the 2020 Election carefully.

If SCOTUS doesn’t address the blatant fraud in SOME fashion, I fear we will never have an honest election ever again. Why shouldn’t the “political parties” lie, cheat, and steal in ANY election they can? NO ONE is ever held to account, especially the rich and powerful politicians and bureaucrats. Maybe a few peons will get their wrist slapped but that’s about it.

Corrupt elections have been a national joke since the JFK’s dad stole the Presidency from Nixon. We joke about the “graveyard vote”, non-citizens voting, and all sorts of scams around registering to vote. Never mind, “harvesting” the nursing homes, homeless, and felons. And don’t forget the “walking around money” that gets distributed.

No, if SCOTUS punts on this, then it sends the wrong message to the power players to clean up their act. If SCOTUS was to disqualify the five or so States from sending electors, then that, by itself, would send a STRONG message about “law and order”. Anything less, means that the Republic is lost until the next revolution.

So this means that you can cheat in ANY election and there is NOTHING that will hold you to account.

Why bother voting at all?
