Episode 431 – Rest in Peace, General

Pete Buttigieg is trying to show us that his position is useless and proves it.

Not having toilet paper, paper towels and Christmas presents in part of Biden’s grand plan.

And Rest in Peace to an American Hero.

 

Rest in Peace

General Colin Powell, the first black Secretary of State who served under three Republican presidents before endorsing former President Barack Obama twice, announced the 84-year-old former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had died “due to complications from Covid-19.”

The statement released by the family stated:

General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff passed away this morning due to complications from Covid 19. He was fully vaccinated. We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment. We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather, and a great American.

Some information about his life:

  • Powell was born in Harlem in 1937, the son of Jamaican immigrants.
  • He served two tours in Vietnam while serving in the Army.
  • 1968 as assistant chief of staff of operations for the 23rd Infantry Division.
  • Became senior military assistant to Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger during the Reagan Administration.
  • In 1987, he served as United States Deputy National Security Advisor, then Reagan’s last National Security Advisor.
  • He was promoted to four-star general Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
  • Powell was urged by the Bush White House to help convince other nations to join in the invasion of Iraq, which he did successfully, but later regretted it, resigning soon after Bush’s reelection in 2004.
  • He won the Medal of Freedom twice.
  • He wrote a book called It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership.

This Is What Happens With A Real Military

According to some military intelligence people, China has tested a nuclear-capable, hypersonic missile. These are missiles can travel at over 21,000 miles an hour, can travel around the world and accurately hit a target. These intelligence officers say the government is very surprised by the technology and speed in which the Chinese created this weapon.

When confronted about it, China issued a statement that this was not a missile but a space vehicle.

A few things about this:

  • This is probably going to start a new arms race. We are already in a cold war with China.
  • I don’t believe anything China says or does so I’m going to assume that they did test a missile.
  • China’s aggression has to be taken serious. We must get off this woke crap and begin to see China as an enemy.

This was the White House’s response:

Some things:

  • You welcome “stiff competition”?
  • This isn’t an f-ing baseball game!
  • Our cities can be blown up and we can’t stop it. I think that’s something to think about.

What is our military doing? What is this administration thinking about?

What Good Is He?

So, we have a huge supply chain problem the is affecting everything right now. Shelves are empty at the stores. Inflation is running rampant. Ships off both coasts are sitting off both coasts, loaded with stuff, unable to dock because there are no workers to get the stuff off the ship and drive them to the stores.

It’s a mess. Sounds like something the Secretary of Transportation should be dealing with, right? That’s Pete Buttigieg by the way. You know, the mayor of a small city in Indiana. Tons of experience.

Anyway, people have asked where he is. It turns out that he has been on paternity since August. That’s right, this gay man who is married to another man has decided to have twins and he has been on paid leave (his salary is paid by tax payers) during the worst supply chain crisis in decades.

And this is what he was hired for.

A couple of things:

  • Three months of paternity? Really?
    • Children do not need bonding time with fathers for the first year.
    • They bond with the mothers (breast feeding). Of course, that’s not a thing here.
  • I never had paternity time. I was off for maybe two weeks just to help my ex-wife recover.
  • I had to use vacation time. I wasn’t given money by the government.
  • By the way, what use is Pete if he is missing and no one notices? Maybe it’s time to get rid of his position. Obviously, it’s not that important.

That’s Not Really the Story

So Pete has decided to justify his existence. He decided to hop on a couple of shows on CNN and talk about the supply chain crisis. I bet he wished he had just stayed home after these interviews.

First, he got caught saying the quiet part out loud. This could not be part of the plan:

Some things:

  • If we have so much throughput, why are we experience shortages that will go on to next year?
  • If this situation is so serious, why was he taking three months off? Isn’t that his job?
  • The Southwest thing is just a flat out lie.
    • No other airline had a weather problem. Only Southwest.
    • The CEO admitted the vax mandate was causing people not go to work. Not the weather.
  • Notice, he says it’s the weather in Florida. Next, it will be Ron Desantis’ fault.

But this next clip really shows the new narrative that the Biden administration is pushing. The above clip did touch on it but this one really puts it on the map:

Some things:

  • What are those steps, by the way?
  • This is a sign of Joe Biden’s success? No presents for Christmas and massive inflation are signs of success?
  • Yep. This is going to be the new talking point. Don’t believe your lying eyes or shrinking bank account.

Jen Psaki said it too. Here she is on CNN, with Jake Tapper, saying the same thing:

Some things:

  • Yes, that’s what the tweet said.
  • This is tone deaf.
  • A year and a half ago, the unemployment rate was a full percent lower (3.5%) before the pandemic.
  • 3.9 million people have left the workforce this year. That’s why the unemployment rate is down. Not because of great economic policies.
  • Again, she’s lying. Economists have said this inflation is not transitory and that some of it might be permanent.
  • This is a good thing. It’s per the President’s plan.

These people are lying and they are being called out.

Episode 430 – California Dreaming

Gavin Newsom continues to f-up California and I think it’s important to watch its descending into Hell.

Social Justice is getting crazy.

And I think Greg Popovich needs to learn a little about the history of basketball.

 

California Dreaming

Gavin Newsom is really on fire. Maybe he really wants another recall election because some of the ideas he’s implementing are pretty insane. And we have quite a list.

I do this for two reason: I live in this nutty state and have to deal with all these stupid policies and I want to show the idiotic Leftist policies in a blue state so when this pretty boy decides to run for President, you’ll vote for the other guy.

I also want to show you the direction that Joe Biden wants to take us.

 

So Long, Elon

Elon Musk is moving Tesla out of California and to Texas. He made the announcement on Thursday of last week. He said the move was for convenience and affordability.

Musk stated:

“To be clear we will be continuing to expand our activities in California. Our intention is to increase output from Fremont and Giga Nevada by 50%. If you go to our Fremont factory it’s jammed.

“It’s tough for people to afford houses, and people have to come in from far away. There’s a limit to how big you can scale in the Bay Area. In Austin our factory is like five minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Downtown.”

He later tweeted:

“Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately. If we even retain Fremont manufacturing activity at all, it will be dependen [sic] on how Tesla is treated in the future.

“Tesla is the last carmaker left in CA.”

The last part is a shot at Lorena Gonzalez, a Democrat assemblywoman. She is pissed off about the salaries Tesla pays, the fact that she buys into that crap that Musk doesn’t pay his “fair share” and that he receives billions of dollars in subsidies.

She tweeted to Musk:

Fuck Elon Musk!

A very mature response from an assemblywoman. Of course, she just cost California tens of thousands of jobs, a loss of a couple of billion dollars in taxes and the subsidies were approved by Democrats like her because he builds the only successful electric car.

Musk responded to her on his website, tesmania.com:

“Tesla Moved its HQ to Texas Following Explicit Offer from California Assemblywoman. Exactly.”

 

Always Ask Where This Is Going To Go

California will be the first state, thanks to a law signed by Gavin Newsom, to allow euthanasia. This is the right of a patient to end his own life due to a terminal disease.

According to UCLA Health:

To receive the aid-in-dying drug, a person must:

  • Be 18 years or older and a resident of California
  • Have a terminal disease that cannot be cured or reversed and that is expected to result in
    death within six months
  • Have capacity to make medical decisions and not have impaired judgment due to a mental
    disorder
  • Have the physical ability to take and ingest the drug

Now I have a mixed thought on euthenasia. I have seen people who are dying of stage 4 cancer. It sucks. I am not a 100% that assisted suicide is an immoral thing unless I apply the Bible here. I don’t like to do that when debating someone who does not share my religious views. But there are a couple of things that bother me about this law as it is written:

  • It violates a doctor’s Hippocratic Oath.
  • It doesn’t allow for the chance of miracles. Beleive it or not, these things do happen. I know this for a fact.

But this is not why I’m against this law. Here is an example of the Give A Mouse A Cookie rule. What could this law lead to? Could it end up like? Is it possible that someone could request assisted suicide because they are simply depressed?

I say no to this law. It could lead to something far worse.

 

Back to the 1800s

In a bold move, Gavin Newsom signed a bill that would require toy stores to have a row for gender neutral toys. No kidding. This seems like a very important law.

The law reads:

This bill would require a retail department store that is physically located in California that has a total of 500 or more employees across all California retail department store locations that sells childcare items or toys to maintain a gender neutral section or area, to be labeled at the discretion of the retailer, in which a reasonable selection of the items and toys for children that it sells shall be displayed, regardless of whether they have been traditionally marketed for either girls or for boys.

Um, there might be some problems with the law:

  • It’s unconstitutional.
  • It very vague. What is “reasonable selection”?
  • What is considered a gender neutral toy? A ball? Legos?
  • Who is going to decide what is gender neutral?
  • Who is going to monitor and enforce this?
  • I thought there was no sex. Why do we need to worry about keeping things gender neutral.

The law will go into effect in 2024. The first offense will lead to a $250 fine. Each subsequent violation will lead to a $500 fine.

Assemblyman Evan Low (D-CA), who introduced the legislation, said:

Part of it is to make sure if you’re a young girl that you can find a police car, fire truck, a periodic table or a dinosaur. And then similarly, if you’re a boy, if you’re more artistic and want to play with glitter, why not? Why should you feel the stigma of saying, ‘Oh, this should be shamed’ and going to a different location?

Um,  if a girl wants a police car, can’t she just go to the section that has police cars? If a boy wants glitter, can’t he just go to the glitter section? Won’t this be more confusing especially if you put a police car in the gender neutral aisle, people may not find it?

 

We Need To Get Rid of Grass

Gavin Newsom signed a bill the outlawed the selling of gas powered lawn mowers, leaf blowers and chainsaws. I guess we are going back to manual mowers, water hoses and rakes and hand saws. Welcome back to 1920.

This goes along with the law that bans selling gas powered cars by 2035. There is also a bill that states that generators must be regulated to a certain amount of pollution. Jeez! I’ll get to the irony in a second.

The law states:

Assembly Bill 1346 directs the California Air Resources Board to phase out the sale of small off-road engines by 2024 or as soon as feasible, whichever comes later. The new law also directs the board to identify and make available, where feasible, funding for commercial rebates to go toward the purchase of electric equipment.

State Assemblyman Marc Berman (D-CA), who authored the legislation, said:

It’s amazing how people react when they learn how much this equipment pollutes, and how much smog forming and climate changing emissions that small off-road engine equipment creates. This is a pretty modest approach to trying to limit the massive amounts of pollution that this equipment emits, not to mention the health impact on the workers who are using it constantly.

Now, let me point out the irony here. California is recommending that people do not plug in their electric cars during peak hour because of the obselete power grid.

Who’s this going to hurt? Working class people like gardners and landscapers. It’ll also hurt people like me who does his own lawn and landscaping on those Saturday afternoons. Politicians don’t worry about that. They hire someone to do that for them.

 

Forget Math Because This Is Important

Forget math, literature, writing, science or computer technology. Who needs that? Ethnic studies is what’s going to get our kids through life.

Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom has signed legislation that makes California the first state to mandate public high school students pass an ethnic studies class as a graduation requirement.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported:

High school students in California will be required to learn about the contributions and oppression of people of color in America, under a measure Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Friday.” According to the outlet, the new law “adds a one-semester ethnic studies course to the state’s high school graduation requirements for public schools, starting with the 2029-30 academic year.”

Newsom said:

America is shaped by our shared history, much of it painful and etched with woeful injustice. Students deserve to see themselves in their studies, and they must understand our nation’s full history if we expect them to one day build a more just society.

Welcome to Critical Race Theory.

Assemblyman Jose Medina said:

The inclusion of ethnic studies in the high school curriculum is long overdue. Students cannot have a full understanding of the history of our state and nation without the inclusion of the contribution and struggles of Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans.

I want to acknowledge the countless young people, high school and college students, teachers and professors, who have organized, demonstrated, boycotted classes, and gone on hunger strikes to demand a more equitable and inclusive educational system.

The Chronicle reported:

Some Republican legislators said the course is inappropriate for high school students, arguing it is rooted in critical race theory, a view that racism is ingrained in laws and government institutions.

Proponents say ethnic studies courses are shown to help students of color improve academically because they feel empowered by seeing themselves reflected in textbooks, rather than a “Eurocentric” version of history.

The final version of AB101 includes a provision that discourages school districts from using earlier versions of the model curriculum that included references to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The measure also prohibits schools from using instruction materials that promote bias or discrimination toward any group.

I have big problems with this:

  • This, again, is made to demonize white students and victimize students of color. It creates division.
  • Don’t kid yourself, this is Critical Race Theory.
  • What about Irish, German, British, Nordic and Jewish ethicities? Do they count.
  • This is going to rewrite history to create victimization.

Around the World

We cannot forget what’s happening around the world. At least, I won’t let you forget.

 

Iran

What would the best way to deal with Iran who is only a few weeks to having enough nuclear material to create a nuclear weapon? It doesn’t matter what we think because Joe Biden has a definite idea what to do.

According to The Hill:

The sanctions, targeting the Mammut Industrial Group (Mammut Industries) and its subsidiary Mammut Diesel, were originally imposed by the Trump administration in September 2020 as part of efforts to increase a maximum pressure campaign of sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear activity and actions in the region criticized as malign and destabilizing.

That’s right! Let’s give Iran the money to build missiles! Yay!

It looks like Israel is going to have a busy 2022.

 

Afghanistan

The Taliban has made an announcement on Saturday stating that they alone will handle the terrorist cells in Afghanistan and will not help the United States get terrorists.

Who didn’t see that coming.

The Taliban hates ISIS-K, if it exists, and is actively hunting them down. But ISIS-K is not a concern of the United States. We are hunting al Qaeda because they are the ones that are a major threat (they took down the World Trade Center) and they are allied with al Qaeda.

So much for all that over-the-horizon crap.

How is Joe Biden going to deal with this? How about giving Afghanistan money? Does that sound good?

The United States decided to provide humanitarian aid to the poor. What that means is we are going to give money to the Taliban because they are going to take it and give nothing to the people. Afghanistan is in trouble. They are about to lose power because they have not paid the power companies. Their economy is collapsing because the Taliban can’t run an economy. They are currently working with China and Pakistan to try to get back on their feet. Don’t kid yourself, they are also working with Iran.

Sleepy Creepy Joe did a great job with Afghanistan.

Back to the SJW Crap

We need to always go over some of the insane SJW BS that companies are promoting.

 

Superman

DC comic writer Tom Taylor revealed Monday that the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane (formerly Superboy) is a bisexual and will have a gay lover by issue 5 of the comic. He said having another “another straight white savior” would be a “real opportunity missed.”

Taylor told IGN:

Over the years in this industry, it probably won’t surprise you to hear I’ve had queer characters and storylines rejected. I felt like I was letting down people I loved every time this happened. But we are in a very different and much more welcome place today than we were ten, or even five years ago. When I was asked if I wanted to write a new Superman with a new #1 for the DC Universe, I knew replacing Clark with another straight white savior could be a real opportunity missed.

OK, some things about this:

  • I don’t read comics, I don’t care about DC or Marvel movies. I just don’t like them. They’re dumb. So I really don’t care about this.
  • The big question here, though, is what opportunity would he miss? Maybe publishing a comic that will sell for the first five issues then not sell at all. That’s what’s going to happen.
  • Contrary to popular belief, comic guys are nerds not social justice worriers. Most of them are straight white men.
  • But I am happy that he’s not making Clark Kent gay. I hate the idea of making 007 a woman. Just create new characters.

 

Legos

Legos has decided to go woke. They have decided to become more gender neutral. In a statement they said:

Ensuring more inclusive play and raising the debate around gender norms is critical, not just for girls but for any child. The LEGO Group knows that boys are also battling prejudice when it comes to creative play and playing with toys that are traditionally seen as being for the opposite sex. 71% of boys vs. 42% of girls say they worry about being made fun of if they play with a toy typically associated for the other gender.

The company is committed to making LEGO play more inclusive and ensuring that children’s creative ambitions – both now in the future – are not limited by gender stereotypes. We know there is work to do which is why from 2021, we will work closely with the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and UNICEF to ensure LEGO products and marketing are accessible to all and free of gender bias and harmful stereotypes.

Dude, they’re building blocks!

I would rather they continue to do what they’re doing but make them less painful when one steps on them.

Learn a Book

Of course, Columbus Day has gotten a lot of crap. You knew there would be some really stupid people saying some really stupid things.

Here’s rich Lefty, Greg Popovich, the coach for the San Antonio Spurs commenting on Columbus Day:

Some things:

  • Columbus was an explorer, not a colonist. He did not start any genocide. This guy needs to learn a history book.
  • The reason there are Mexicans today is because Spain supported the Spanish marrying the Indians.
  • Slavery was illegal and discouraged by Spain. It happened but not really by Columbus. In fact, Columbus got into trouble for sending slaves back to Spain.
  • Disease, which is what most Native Americans died of, is not genocide. The Aztecs sacrificed 88,000 people in three days.
  • The Aztecs were known for three things: conquest, genocide and basketball.
  • The Nazi comment is just stupid. And when I say that, I mean Popovich is stupid.

Episode 429 – It’s Going to be a Problem

Poor, poor Jen Psaki. Peter Doocy keeps lighting her up.

But her biggest problem is the legacy media is now lighting her up.

And the Biden administration is not helping her at all.

 

Poor Jen

You have to feel a little sorry for press secretary, Jen Psaki. She has to answer for one of the most incompetent administration is U.S. history. He has to deal with inflation, high gas prices, supply shortages, the Afghanistan debacle, an immigration crisis, the mixed messaging with the China virus and the Hunter Biden scandal (yes, it’s a scandal). I’m sure I’m forgetting some other things.

OK, I don’t really feel sorry for her at all because she’s a lying bitch.

Last week was particularly brutal.

 

Peter Doocy of Fox News

Enter Peter Doocy, the arch-enemy of Jen Psaki from Fox News. He absolutely blew Psaki out of the water on Friday:

Some things:

  • Don’t answer a question with a question.
  • Psaki is trying to make it that this is a global problem not a problem with the administration.
  • She also must be getting tired of answering for every stupid comment made by this incompetent administration.
  • They have been talking about this since January but still haven’t done anything about it but put together a task force?
  • COVID is always Jen’s go to explanation. News flash: the pandemic is over.
  • The problem is not the pandemic it’s the fact that the administration is paying people to stay home and no one is working.

But Peter Doocy wasn’t done. He wasn’t going to let her blame the China virus for errors of this administration:

Some things:

  • If she knows there are several layers to the problem why does she only bring up the China virus.
  • And she doesn’t answer Doocy’s question. Is the President satisfied with the job the task force is doing?

Doocy isn’t finished and this is a particularly brutal question:

Some things:

  • Sorry, Jen, this is a good question.
  • No, he is not popular in Virginia. He’s not even popular in California.
  • And they always do this. The second his poll numbers tank (he’s underwater by 10 points) they keep saying the polls are crap because he won the election.

But I think the response she gave on Wednesday of last week was the most precious. Guess what she blamed the bad poll numbers on then:

 

Some things:

  • It’s the China Virus’ fault.
  • It’s the fault of the unvaxxed.
  • But the buck stops with Joe, right?
  • How can she be so unaware that she is blaming the polls on COVID and the unvaxxed while saying the “buck stop with the President” in the same sentence?
  • How can she be so dismissive of all the problems caused by this administration that we see because we are all suffering through it?

Anyway, back to Peter Doocy’s fileting of Jen Psaki.

Last week, Joe Biden personally called a hospital because the wife of a good friend couldn’t get into a hospital right away. Basically, he was trying to get preferential treatment for his friend. How elitist of him. This isn’t a secret and it really shows the concerns of the President. Here’s Doocy questioning Psaki about it:

Some things:

  • Bullshit.
  • The context is he wanted to get his friend’s wife seen right away.
  • It was a stupid thing for him to say and a bad look.
  • But, as usual, she blames the China virus and the unvaxxed for the Old Joe doing something stupid.
  • And, notice, she doesn’t answer Doocy’s question. She starts word-vomiting then says she doesn’t know.

 

Not Just Peter Doocy

The problem the legacy media is having right now is they can’t hide the ball for Biden anymore. If they are going to hold any legitimacy, they are going to have to mix in the tough questions with the ones about ice cream or his allergies.

Here’s a question from CNN’s Jeremy Diamond about the economy and the horrid job numbers:

Some things:

  • This reporter did everything he could to try to sugar-coat this question.
  • Jen’s “We don’t see things as darkly as you do” comment shows either this administration is out of touch or that they can bullshit their way out of this mess.
  • She is also blaming the reporter for being observant as to the real problems and failures of this administration.
  • This is also something the administration tries to do. They try to spin what is happening:
    • Yes, 5 million jobs have been taken. But there should be close to 9 million jobs created.
    • The economy is heating up but far slower than it should. Don’t forget: the economy was shutdown last year. It should be flying right now.
  • She also is ignoring inflation, soaring gas prices, the national debt and the supply chain problems.
  • The Vice President said these supply chain issues are not going to be fixed by Christmas and we should start buying Christmas presents now.
  • The fact that the Biden administration does not see any issues, refuses to take responsibility and blames everyone else for their shortcomings is not being embraced by Americans and is why his poll numbers are way down.
  • It is also going to be a killer for Democrats in 2022.

Here’s another question about Hunter Biden selling his “artwork” for $500,000. Listen:

Some things:

  • We’ll get to Hunter Biden in a second. He’s going to be a big issue.
  • Jen does two things here that she always does and it’s so irritating:
    • She avoids the question by referring the question to someone else, in this case, the gallerist.
    • She minimizes the issue. Yes, it’s important why a foreign ambassador is going to Hunter Biden’s art exhibit because it does look fishy. It looks like corruption.

She is truly a terrible press secretary and it’s beginning to show. She also has no way of talking her way out of the fact that this administration is incompetent and corrupt. I will throw this out there. She said she was going to resign in a year. Prepare for that resignation by January. This must be putting a ton of stress on her and she sounds like she is going to pop.

And she’s a ginger so she’s already unstable.

Speaking of Hunter Biden

This issue with Hunter Biden, who the media covered for last year, is heating up and the media can’t hide it anymore. That’s because it’s turning into a scandal.

Let’s just review the multitudes of problems that Hunter Biden has caused:

  • He has a drug problem.
  • He likes hookers
  • The above two we know for a fact because he likes to film everything.
  • He was on the board of a Ukrainian oil company when Old Joe was Vice President.
  • He was on the board of a Chinese company when Old Joe was Vice President.
  • He had an affair with his dead brother’s wife.
  • He illegally owned a gun.
  • That illegally-owned gun was thrown in a trash dumpster across the street from a school because his girlfriend (dead brother’s wife) thought he would commit suicide.
  • He’s under FBI investigation for corruption and tax evasion.
  • He impregnated a stripper.
  • He used the n-word in text messages with his lawyer.
  • He’s lost three laptops (one is with the FBI) that hold emails implicating Joe Biden receiving payments from China and Ukraine. There is also a witness that said this was happening.

That’s just a short list of this guy’s shenanigans. These are only the ones I have off the top of my head.

So what does a guy with a list of achievements like this do? Painting. This seems like a wholesome, legitimate and relaxing hobby. I write to relax. I enjoy it. I’m not great at it but that doesn’t matter.

Yeah, well, it’s not a hobby for Hunter Biden. He’s making money. A lot of money and he’s doing it with some really sketchy people.

The New York Post reports:

At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring, The Post has learned.

The Georges Berges Gallery sold the prints before the Oct. 1 opening of a “pop-up” presentation in Los Angeles, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday.

It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.

“But most of those allowed to buy works are long-term, private collectors with the gallery, people that Berges knows personally,” the source said.

Meanwhile, a leading ethics expert told The Post that Biden’s recent schmoozing with attendees at his debut exhibition showed that a White House attempt to prevent influence-peddling by keeping buyers anonymous won’t work and should be scrapped in favor of a “Plan B.”

Supposedly all the potential buyers are screened and their backgrounds are investigated by lawyers. But that didn’t stop Los Angeles mayor, Eric Garcetti, from going to the exhibit. Eric Garcetti is in the running to be ambassador to India. There is also the plan to keep the buyers anonymous but Hunter has been seen socializing within the galleries so that’s not working. This makes it look like influence peddling and is a violation of ethics rules.

Many say that Old Joe can avoid all this mess in a few ways:

  • Publish the identities of the buyers.
  • Have all who are going to be involved in the administration sign recusal letters so that they will not hire anyone who has purchased Hunter’s art.
  • Tell Hunter not to sell his crap until after Old Joe is out of office.

Of course, Hunter won’t do that. He won’t make any more money when Joe is out of office.

This kid has been an embarrassment and a hang nail for Old Joe. The media did everything they could to hide Hunter during the election. But Hunter keeps f-ing up. He’s lost three laptops and all fell into the wrong hands including, Hunter thinks, Russian intelligence. All of them had incriminating emails and video of him using dope and boinking hookers.

Sleepy, Creepy Joe Biden is compromised. Sleepy, Creepy Joe is corrupt. Hunter Biden is so stupid and arrogant, he’s not even hiding it. It’s getting to the point that Joe is going to have to start answering some questions and there needs to be an investigation. This stuff is enough to get him impeached and could become a real issue after the Republicans take the House and Senate next year.

Do You Get It Now?

Just to end things with the same theme, let’s talk about Joe Biden erasing our border.

The Department of Homeland Security has  decided to “cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector.”

In a statement, they said:

CBP will then begin environmental planning and actions consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for previously planned border barrier system projects located within the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, and El Centro Sectors.

Environmental planning activities will cover projects funded with DHS’s Fiscal Year 2018-2021 barrier system appropriations where construction had not started. These activities include additional biological, cultural, and natural resource surveys for project areas where no data have been previously collected. CBP will also conduct comprehensive and targeted outreach with interested stakeholders, including impacted landowners, tribes, state and local elected officials, and federal agencies. These activities will not involve any construction of new border barrier or permanent land acquisition.

The Administration continues to call on Congress to cancel remaining border wall funding and instead fund smarter border security measures, like border technology and modernization of land ports of entry, that are proven to be more effective at improving safety and security at the border. Until and unless Congress cancels those funds, the law requires DHS to use the funds consistent with their appropriated purpose, and beginning environmental planning activities is part of the Department’s plan to do so.

The Border Patrol was consulted under the Trump administration to come up with a plan that would curb illegal immigration. It took them two weeks to say they needed a wall. They are now complaining that the Biden administration just made the decision without consulting anyone.

This year, we are looking at a record number of illegal aliens crossing the border. There were 210,000 crossing last month and 213,000 crossings the month before. It is believed 90% are being freed into the interior of the United States and up to 20% have the China virus. Another group of Haitians, who have been staying in Cental and South America are heading to the United States as we speak. The estimates are between 65,000 to 85,000. Speculators believe we could be looking at 400,000 illegal aliens getting caught in October.

Joe Biden is not even hiding the ball anymore when it comes to the border. He wants people to come in. He wants to give them all the benefits like health, food stamps, free education and welfare. He wants to make these criminals legal. He is trying to create a voting base that will vote for Democrats for the rest of time.

Who’s going to pay for it? American citizens and legal residents.

Episode 428 – Sportswoman of the Year?

Joe Biden is really having a bad week…again.

Chicago is proving to embrace anarchy.

And some guy wins sportswoman of the year.

 

Some News

Here’s some of the latest news:

Bad Numbers…Again

Joe Biden decided to celebrate the jobs report from September and held a speech today. Here are the highlights:

Some things:

  • His speech was 14 minutes.
  • He celebrated that unemployment went down.
  • He said salaries were up but never mentioned that inflation is still ahead of salary growth.
  • he talked about how well he is doing with COVID. Reality is there have been more deaths this year than all of last year.
  • He compared the economy to last year, but not before the pandemic hit. There, the numbers aren’t good.
  • He tried selling his spending bills.
  • He took no questions.

CNBC and CNN don’t agree with Old Joe:

Yeah, so which is right?

I think it is easy to say we are in stagflation. That means that prices are going up while innovation, employment and salaries are staying the same or going down.

  • The economy added 194,000 jobs, well below the predicted 500,000.
  • Notice, the speculators keep dropping their predictions? They went from 900,000 to 800,000 to 700,000 to 500,000 and still overshoot it.
  • The jobs gains in August were revised up to 366,000 from 235,000.
  • The unemployment rate lowered to 4.8%. That’s good.
  • Salaries are up but artificially. Businesses have to pay more to get people to work and that’s not working.
  • Bad news, we still have 10 million available and people aren’t looking for work even after the extended unemployment benefits have ended last month.
  • Today, Biden made a speech about it. I haven’t heard it yet.

What Joe is trying to push is, not the crappy job he’s doing, but that we need to let him f-up more so that he can fix the economy.

 

Biden’s Poll Number Tanking

Biden’s poll numbers are falling like a rock. They are now lower than Trump’s worst poll numbers during his presidency.

  • His poll numbers are at 38% approval rate.
  • This is down from 42% last month.
  • 80% of Democrats approve. That’s high but it is down.
  • 32% of Independents approve. That’s way down. Remember, he won the Presidency because of Independents.
  • The Virginia gubernatorial vote is coming up. This could be a real sign of how Dems will do in 2022.
  • Even CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post are panicking.

 

Censorship…Again

Google is at it again with its censorship push.

According to Fox Business:

The ban applies to “content that contradicts the well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change,” Google, the world’s largest digital-ad company by revenue, said in a blog post Thursday. It also applies to any content denying that human activity or greenhouse gas emissions contribute to climate change.

I have some thoughts about this:

  • Climate science is not science.
    • Science is a process. The scientific method, which is how science works, cannot be applied to climate “science”.
    • We only have about 150 years of climate data.
    • Today, meteorologists can only accurately determine weather for five days accurately. How are “climate scientists” going to determine the weather 10 or 20 or 30 or a 100 years from now.
    • All the “science” is based on computer models. In other words, they guess.
  • Wouldn’t it be better if:
    • Cut our emissions by innovation and technology created by the private sector than by regulation that will bring us back into the 18th century?
    • Isn’t the climate something that is ever changing?
    • Maybe we should, instead of trying to prevent change, we should deal with the change.

The Wild, Wild Midwest

Chicago is a mess. They are looking at setting records for murders and shootings this year. That’s a real accomplishment since the record was broken last year and the year before that.

There was a shooting involving five gang members from two different factions of the Four Corner Hustler gangs. One person ended up dead and two were injured. The police had enough information to arrest the individuals and charge one with first degree murder and the others with assault with a deadly weapon. They also probably would have gotten extra time for crime being committed due to illegal gang activity.

The absolutely terrible prosecutor of Chicago, Kim Foxx, said there was not enough evidence and, since the gang members were shooting at each other, the gang members are considered “mutual combatants” and there should be no charges. No charges were files and all of the suspects were released.

The more miserable mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, is furious over the decision. She said:

If they do not feel like the criminal justice system is going to hold them accountable, we’re going to see a level of brazenness that will send this city into chaos. And we cannot let that happen.

It’s complicated, for sure, but we really urge the state’s attorney herself to get personally involved, look at the evidence. And I believe that there are charges that can be brought at a minimum against the individuals who initiated the gunfire. We can’t live in a world where there’s no accountability.

Foxx, who is a Leftist and treats crime as a political opportunity, thinks all white people are racist and all black criminals as underprivileged and wants to defund the police, said:

The mayor, as a former prosecutor, knows of the ethical obligations of the prosecutor, which is to only bring forth charges where the evidence and the law support it.

I don’t play politics. We do prosecutions. And it’s why we do our best to not engage in public conversations about cases because we recognize that as tragic and horrific as these incidents are, that if we want to see criminal justice and accountability, we do that in the courtroom.

This would be a commendable statement if it weren’t for the fact that Foxx never seems to take any criminal to court. Don’t forget she let Jussie Smollett go.

Showing all her leadership ability, Lightfoot called for the federal government to get involved. This is the chaos that Leftist cities embrace. Then they blame someone else and ask for help from the federal government when their lack of leadership can’t deal with the chaos.

Is it a wonder that the CDC released a report that homicide is at its highest point in 100 years? In a report, the CDC said that homicide is the highest since 1904, 1905.

Sportswomen of the Year?

The transgender female weightlifter, Laurel Hubbard, that tanked in the weightlifting competition this summer has been named “Sportswoman of the Year” by New Zealand’s University of Otago.

Why? I don’t know:

  • He got his ass kicked at the Olympics.
  • He obviously isn’t a great weightlifter.
  • He’s a man and has been for most of his life!

The university said in a statement:

“We acknowledge that gender identity in sport is a highly sensitive and complex issue requiring a balance between human rights and fairness on the field of play. The New Zealand team is committed to supporting all eligible New Zealand athletes at the Olympic Games, ensuring their mental and physical wellbeing as they compete on the world stage.”

Hubbard said:

“It is not possible for athletes to complete at the Olympic level without the encouragement and aroha of friends, family and supporters. This award belongs to everyone who has been part of my Olympic journey.”

Maori term means “compassion” or “love.”

The International Olympic Committee has been put in a really bad position because of Hubbard. None of the female athletes, including the medalists at the Olympics, had anything to say about the “historic” consequences of a man competing against women. They seemed kind of annoyed. They allowed Hubbard to compete a week before the competition. According to the AP:

“The IOC will release a new ‘framework’ for transgender athletes’ eligibility in the coming months. That document is expected to take into account newer scientific studies published since the last major review in 2015. That will form a basis for sports to draw up their own updated policies.”

New “scientific studies”? What scientific studies are actually going to prove that a man can be a woman? A blood test will prove everything.

Here’s some bad news from those transphobes at the United Kingdom’s Sports Councils Equality Group. The report stated:

“Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.”

They also added:

“[T]here appears to be a retention of physical capacity in transgender people who suppress testosterone from male levels. Such physical differences will also impact on safety parameters in sports which are combat, collision or contact in nature.”

Duh!

“[Sports governing bodies] may choose to offer sport in which the female category is protected for reasons of competitive fairness and/or safety if they are gender affected. These sports would offer both a female category and an open category. Female entries would be required to declare themselves as recorded female at birth. An open category would be available for any competitor to enter.”

So, basically, create a transgender league. In other words, create a competitive division for men who can’t compete with men. This is so dumb. Hubbard, who competed as a man until he was 35 years old, couldn’t compete with the men. He became a woman and now we find he can’t compete with the women. That’s how bad he is at weightlifting.

What a waste of time to stay woke.

Episode 427 – Not A Whistleblower

A Facebook whistleblower testifies in front of Congress.

I think the Department of Justice needs to look up what defines a terrorist.

And World War III might be on the table.

 

The Whistleblower That’s Not

There was a Facebook “whistleblower” in front to the Senate yesterday saying that Facebook needed to be heavily regulated.

Frances Haugen said that Facebook cared more about profits than the safety of the children who use Facebook, especially girls. She said:

The company’s leadership knows how to make Facebook and Instagram safer but won’t make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical profits before people. Congressional action is needed. They won’t solve this crisis without your help.

Companies have 100% control over their algorithms, and Facebook should not get a free pass on choices it makes to prioritize growth and virality and reactiveness over public safety. They’re paying for their profits right now with our safety.

Couple of things:

  • This is not a crisis.
  • She seems more concerned about Facebook making profits.
  • Private companies should have control over their algorithms. That is a company’s intellectual property. She wants the government to control it. Why? We’ll answer that later.
  • Facebook is not selling cigarettes or crack. What do they have to do with the safety of children, especially girls?
    • Isn’t that the problem of the parents?
    • Isn’t this the same argument made against television commercials?
  • And, by the way, teenagers being insecure is a new thing?

Nothing she is saying here is new. We’ll see later that there is an ulterior motive to all this.

She said that she did not think (why anyone cares what she thinks shocks me) Facebook should be broken up but there needs to be a change to section 230. Section 230 is what makes a company not responsible for third party content while being able to control offensive content like porn. She said:

I think if we had appropriate oversight, or if we reformed Section 230 to make Facebook responsible for the consequences of their intentional ranking decisions, I think they would get rid of engagement-based ranking because it is causing teenagers to be exposed to more anorexia content. It is pulling families apart, and in places like Ethiopia, it is literally fanning ethnic violence.

Some things:

  • I think there should be changes to section 230 too. But those changes should allow me to sue Facebook when they block me.
  • This should not be something that the government forces Facebook to do something.
  • Notice, she’s talking about women and ethnic violence? How woke of her.

Some things about her entire 3 1/2 hour testimony:

  • She wants the government to regulate Facebook.
    • She thinks the algorithms should be reviewed and controlled by the government. That’s unconstitutional because it is a violation private business and intellectual property laws.
    • She thinks there should be a governmental regulator that Mark Zuckerberg has to report to.
    • One person she suggested was herself. That’s right. She’s saying the government should make her Mark Zuckerberg’s boss.
  • All her complaints stem from Left wing talking points.

Mark Zuckerberg released a 1300 word statement about this whole thing on Facebook. I won’t go over it because I already know this bitch is full of shit (we’ll go over that in a second). The only thing I remember is he said this gal is not a professional for Facebook and knows nothing about the inner workings.

I believe that.

 

What Is This Really?

Frances Haugen is not a whistleblower. She’s a Left wing plant that has put out this non-information so that Democrats can undermine and takeover Facebook, controlling what data see on Facebook. Period.

Haugen has, throughout her life, shown she is sympathetic for Leftist policies:

  • She donated to Leftist politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
  • She’s donated to the “Courage to Change” Political Action Committee.
  • She complained that Google was not inclusive enough of women.
  • Frances Haugen was behind a “recent change to give users the option to filter searches to specific skin tones.
  • At Gigster, she gave a talk on how “if we don’t build with an eye towards inclusion, we can end up enshrining bias.”
  • Despite having money for political donations, in January 2020, Haugen had a $44,000 federal tax lien placed against her for unpaid taxes, according to public records reviewed by The Daily Wire. The lien was released on May 17, 2021. Those lawyers are Whistleblower Aid, a group founded by Mark Zaid, who previously represented the national security official who alleged that Donald Trump inappropriately pressed the Ukraine president on a phone call.
  • The public relations firm of former Obama aide Bill Burton, a company called Bryson Gillette helmed by a raft of Democratic operatives, is providing Haugen with “strategic communications guidance,” helping run what one Republican called “an incredibly well-orchestrated communications campaign,” the Free Beacon reported.
  • Even Mark Zuckerberg has even said she does not have the technical expertise she is conveying.

Democrats want to control how information and what information is disseminated. This gal is a tool to help them get to their desired objective.

Those People Are Terrorists?

Last year, BLM did about $3 billion in damage through rioting.

Antifa took over a section of Portland, burned down a police station and assaults citizens on a daily basis.

In Chicago, gangs have shot thousands a year.

At the border, the drug cartels are trafficking people, committing rape and murder and are importing dangerous drugs into this country.

But, do you know who is being referred to as a domestic terrorists? Conservative parents who do not want their kids being taught critical race theory or critical gender theory.

Last week, the National School Board Association sent a letter to President Biden stating:

“America’s public schools and its education leaders are under an immediate threat. The National School Boards Association respectfully asks for federal law enforcement and other assistance to deal with the growing number of threats of violence and acts of intimidation occurring across the nation.”

On Monday, the Biden administration responded.

In a letter, Merrick Garland said:

This is a lie. There have been some scuffles at board meetings but not against board members and there are very few videos of anything outside of parents yelling at the school boards (usually run by people who don’t have kids in the school districts).

I find it amazing how the Biden administration continues to demonize Americans and Conservatives. I can’t wait to hear the stories that are going to come out that some parent, who bitched at a school board, ends up being banned from a plane flight because he’s considered a terrorist.

Here’s the thing, we hear all the time now about how parents should have a say in their education. Here’s Virginia Democratic governor candidate, Terry McAuliffe saying just that:

Parents need are beginning to take the bull by the horns. Schools have become indoctrination factories and McAuliffe’s statement basically proves that. The state doesn’t want you to raise your own kids. They are considered property of the state. This is why the Left is so against school choice. Private schools don’t teach this crap. They don’t teach that all white people are racists and that you can change your gender at the drop of a hat. They don’t teach math like it’s racist. They make student learn the STEM fields, learn to read and write. In other words, the teach students to be productive citizens. This is not a goal of the public school systems and the teacher unions. It’s to make good radical activists.

Well, parents are sick of not having a say about their children’s education. And they’re speaking up. You know what they should do not. Double down. Continue doing this. Continue fighting. Make those school boards uncomfortable. Fight for their kids. Apparently, what parents were doing before has worked. The school boards are getting nervous, not for their lives like the NSBC wants you to believe, but are afraid of the dissent and protest. We need to keep it up.

World War III is Coming

Chinese state media, the Global Times, released an editorial basically saying that China is ready for war.

You may remember that China sent over 150 war planes over Taiwan, which is an independent country. China sees Taiwan as part of China and swore they would “take back” the country from the secessionists. Taiwan has been working with Australia, Japan, Briton and the United States to try to discourage China’s aggression.

The publication stated:

The peaceful atmosphere that existed in the area only a few years ago has all but disappeared, and the DPP authorities now openly refer to PLA fighters as “enemy aircraft.” They have constantly hyped up claims that they are at the forefront of the so-called democratic world to resist “authoritarian rule.” The strategic collusion between the US and Japan and the DPP authorities is becoming more audacious, and the situation across the Taiwan Straits has almost lost any room for maneuver teetering on the edge of a face-off, creating a sense of urgency that the war may be triggered at any time.

The secessionist forces on the island will never be allowed to secede Taiwan from China under whatever names or by whatever means, and, the island will not be allowed to act as an outpost of the US’ strategic containment against China.

The curtain of preparations for a comprehensive military struggle by the Chinese mainland has obviously been drawn open,” the Global Times wrote. “… it has increasingly become the new mainstream public opinion on the Chinese mainland that the mainland should make earnest preparations based on the possibility of combat.

There is no force in the world whose will to ‘defend Taiwan’ is stronger than China’s will to fight against secession and achieve reunification. To be precise, they are completely incomparable. China dares to have a life-and-death fight against any force that hinders our reunification, but no force dares or is willing to fight to the death against the world’s second largest economy, as well as a nuclear power, in order to prevent China’s reunification.

On Tuesday, when asked about it, Joe Biden said, “‘I’ve spoken with Xi about Taiwan. We agree…we’ll abide by the Taiwan agreement.”

Yeah, because China doesn’t lie, right? And can you think of a better time for China to invade? The United States isn’t going to do anything because Taiwan is an ally and we don’t help our allies.

Episode 426 – Out of Bounds

Old Joe made a speech about raising the debt limit, further unifying with Republicans.

Yes, I’m being sarcastic.

And the Left’s go-to strategy for “persuading” Senators to vote for the Build Back Better bill goes out-of-bounds.

 

I Hope He Didn’t Lose His Dentures While Biting Republicans

Old Joe just keeps being unifying.

He made a speech yesterday about Republicans refusing to raise the debt ceiling.

  • According to Janet Yellen, we will start defaulting on our debt on October 18th.
  • Democrats want the debt ceiling raised now.
  • Republicans, in the shadow of $5 trillion of spending, say, no, if Democrats want to raise the debt ceiling, they will need to use reconciliation and own the debt.
  • Democrats don’t want to use reconciliation because they want to pass other bills.
  • If they don’t, Republicans will use the filibuster which will require 60 votes in the Senate. Dems would not have the votes.

So Joe made a speech and it was very unifying. He blamed Trump and the Republicans. He said the world would be destroyed by fire and brimstone. It was a tough speech but it had very little bite. It didn’t change anyone’s mind. Let’s look at some of it.

So, let’s go through some of the highlights:

Some things:

  • Not true. Our credit rating actually did drop in 2011 from a AAA to AA+ rating. That’s because people were afraid of our debt!
    • By the way, who was President in 2011 and what was his excuse (hint: it was Bush’s fault)?
  • Standards and Poor’s rating says, because of the debt and our unstable political system, says our credit with the rest of the world is not great.
  • He’s using fear to push his agenda. These people are going to get paid.
  • Our tax revenue can only pay the interest, not the principle. I know this is suppose to be OK but no. Our debt could get so high, we won’t even be able to pay the interest. That’s when the fun starts.
  • Question for you: Can you borrow off your credit if your credit is overextended? I bet no.

Next:

Some things:

  • We pay our interest, not on the principle on our debt. That’s why our debt keeps going up.
  • Our credit is not the best in the world.
  • I remember our founding fathers went out to pay all our national debt. How far we’ve fallen.

Next:

Some things:

  • Notice, he’s talking to people like children? You can tell he’s actually trying to talk to the people. Maybe he should do it in prime time (his bed time) and not at noon Eastern Time.
  • I call BS.
    • It has everything to do with the trillions he wants to spend this year.
    • The $1.5 trillion and $3.5 trillion bills (which will cost a lot more in the end) are not $0.
    • The government does not make enough money to pay for these bills even if they pass their tax bill.

Next:

He’s pushing fear again. He does this a lot because he’s talking to the people and the people are iditols. Here’s the thing: people are going to get paid. None of that is going to be cut because if it is, the people shouldn’t trust the government.

Next:

Some things:

  • Here we go. The blame game goes on.
  • According to statistics, we added $6 trillion in debt because of the China virus. A little over $3 trillion was from Trump.
  • Joe Biden wants to spend almost $8 trillion this year!
  • This is why Republicans don’t want to raise the debt limit.

Next:

Some things:

  • More scary talk. A default will probably not lead to mayhem.
  • It may do some of the things he said but it is going to have to be done some time. We can’t continue this way.
  • If we continue this way, our children and grandchildren are going to suffer.
  • If we have to suffer to fix this, we should suffer now.
  • This will also show us how f-ed up our system is. Social security, for example, in a Ponzi scheme.

Next:

Some things:

  • Yes, so let it.
  • Everyone was spending. He’s right.
  • But he wants to dump another $5 trillion (which is actually about $8 trillion) after spending $2 trillion earlier this year.
  • Remember when Bernie Sanders and AOC said we should be spending $10 trillion a year and people laughed at them. That’s what Old Joe is doing!
  • We need to cut the spending in general.
    • We need to cut programs.
    • We need to cut bureaucracy.
    • We need to cut taxes.
    • And we need to cut the debt, no matter the pain.

Next:

Some things:

  • Here we go with the filibuster talk.
  • Biden was against ending the filibuster before. It sounds like he’s warming up to it.
  • I just want to point out that the filibuster was used over 300 times when Trump was in the White House.

Next:

Some things:

  • Joe Biden coughed a lot during this speech.
  • He also looks worn out. I don’t know how long he’s going to last.
  • He did seem more lucid than he usually does.
  • This is the selling point. Democrats are the saviors, Republicans are the obstructionists. This is a really old talking point and they have been using it for years.
  • The filibuster has been used by both parties since its inception. It is hardly a “procedural trick” or an “elaborate procedural scheme”. .
  • The meteor has already hit the Earth in the form over overspending by the government. The “work” that Democrats want to do involves putting gasoline on the fires caused by the meteor by raising taxes and spending more on new programs that will deaden the economy, cost jobs, drive dependence on the government and prevent innovation.

Finally:

Some things:

  • I want to point out that Joe Biden didn’t want to raise the debt ceiling in 2004 during the debt ceiling.
  • Again, if the debt ceiling is not lifted, he is going to have problems passing the additional $6 trillion he wants to pass. Republicans want him to own it.
  • This isn’t Russian roulette. We will be able to continue on. We will just require the government to spend less and pay off the debt.

Conclusion

The infrastructure bill is going to get passed. The reconciliation bill is going to get passed (though it will be cut). The debt limit is going to be raised and the swamp will continue on. I don’t think Republicans have the balls to stand by their beliefs.

That’s why they got Trump in 2016 and that’s why they are going to get Trump, or someone like him, in 2024.

The Gall of These People

The Left must be scared because they have been reduced to harassment of those Democrats who do not want to go along with these radical economic policies.

Here is Kyrsten Sinema at Arizona State University, where she teaches, being harassed all the way into the women’s restroom by a couple of student (one of which is an illegal alien). Listen:

One of the people harassing her, while in the restroom, was a guy.

I also want to point out that this illegal alien with the sob story about her grandfather is blaming Sinema because she’s here illegally and can’t just leave the country and come back in? Is this a debating point?

The chick that created this video wrote a statement:

 

Some things:

  • She’s an illegal alien.
  • She’s so used to breaking the law because she’s an illegal alien, she and her partner do care that they committed a felony by harassing her in the ladies restroom.
  • I am tired of hearing about this stolen land crap. This land was not stolen.
  • No one owes this bitch citizenship. If we want to, we give it to you.
  • And, because she’s an illegal alien, she doesn’t deserve it and should be kicked out of the country.

But that wasn’t it. Kyrsten Sinema was harassed on a plane, heading back to Washington DC. Listen:

Some things:

  • Again, another illegal alien.
  • Sinema is not her Senator.
  • And where the hell are the flight attendants here?
  • If a 2 year old doesn’t where a mask, she’s tossed from the plane.

To her credit, Sinema is one tough cookie. She said that this harassment was completely inappropriate and does not influence her in any way. I’ll venture a guess. I bet it pisses her off and makes her less motivated to vote for that garbage bill.

It also shows you how stupid these people are. Legal citizenship must be pulled out to the Build Back Better bill (such a stupid slogan). Remember, the Senate Parliamentarian said that condition cannot be in a reconciliation bill.

Finally, the balls on these people and the cowardice of our law enforcement. These people are illegal aliens. They are breaking our laws in this country and they think they we owe them something! If we had any balls, law enforcement would be at their homes and bussing their asses out of the country.

Joe Biden was asked about this and he had a really flippant answer.

Some thing:

  • Really, it happens to all of you? I don’t remember the last time a Leftist got kicked out of a restaurant.
  • Also, this is part of the process? I don’t remember a Leftist got harassed for this boondoggle of a bill by a Conservative. Trust me, most Conservatives are definitely concerned.
  • In fact, any Conservative who protests against Leftist policies are usually called a white supremacist and/or a domestic terrorists.
  • That’s exactly what happening when these school boards are being yelled at about teaching critical race theory or critical gender theory by parents.

But sleepy, creepy Joe’s response is still better than how the media portrays it. They think Sinema deserves to be harassed in the women’s restroom while she’s trying to pee. Ana Navaro, the obnoxious Leftist from The View made that clear:

The reality is this is the Left’s weapon. But I think it’s going to get worse.

 

Conclusion

Joe Concha from Fox News made a very good point.

These people weren’t trying to convince Sinema to vote for a bill. If they were, they wouldn’t have been filming it. They were trying to create a viral video. Notice that these videos are escalating. Harassing someone in the restroom is against the law. A felony I believe but they do it anyway.

The question I have is what are people going to do in the future to create a viral video? When is someone going to get hurt? We already see that some of these people are nuts. We’re going to find out because you know someone is planning something to be a Leftist hero and create that viral video.

Episode 425 – She’s Just Terrible!

California is making it a law that it is suppose to be a crappy state.

Joe Biden keeps showing us how moderate he is with his two latest picks to his administration.

And Kamala Harris is a disaster waiting in the wings.

 

Keeping Up With the Joneses

Gavin Newsom is on fire. Since he won his recall election, instead of thinking he’s going to do better as a governor, he decided to act more like an a-hole that will drive California further into the sewer.

 

Vax Mandate

I told you this was going to happen after New York decided to force nurses and doctors to get vaxxed or lose their jobs.

Gavin Newsom announced that K-12 grades will require their students are vaxxed in both private and public schools. He said:

“We are all exhausted by this pandemic. We are all exhausted by this. And that is the purpose of this. We hope this encourages folks to get vaccinated.

“We have no trepidation, no hesitancy in encouraging local districts to move forward more expeditiously.”

You know what we’re tired of? People like Gavin Newsom making a big stink of the flu that’s never going away.

He added in an interview with the Sacramento Bee:

“I believe we will be the first state in America to move forward with this mandate and requirement, but I do not believe, by any stretch of the imagination, that we will be the last state. I anticipate that other states will follow suit.”

Whenever you hear, “we are going to implement the most progressive whatever in the country,” that means California will try a take a shot at doubling down.

I talked to Josie about this and she has one word about this: No!

 

Jeez, That’s What We Need

California has some major issues:

  • Drugs.
  • Mental health.
  • Homelessness.
  • Crime.

What better way to solve these problems than blame the police and try to reform them so they can’t do their jobs. What he wants to do includes:

  • Raising the minimum age for police officers from 18 to 21.
  • Allowing their badges to be permanently taken away for excessive force, dishonesty and racial bias.
  • Limit law enforcement’s use of rubber bullets and tear gas for crowd control.
  • Restrict the use of techniques for restraining suspects in ways that can interfere with breathing.
  • Legislation increasing transparency of peace officer misconduct records.
  • Eliminate certain immunity provisions allowing police officers to face lawsuits.

Newsom said:

“Today marks another step toward healing and justice for all. Too many lives have been lost due to racial profiling and excessive use of force. We cannot change what is past, but we can build accountability, root out racial injustice, and fight systemic racism. We are all indebted to the families who have persevered through their grief to continue this fight and work toward a more just future.”

Question for you: Why would anyone want to be a cop?

  • Your life is constantly put in danger but you, seemingly, aren’t allowed to protect yourself.
  • Your susceptible to any complaint.
  • You can be sued by any criminal because he doesn’t like you.
  • The mere mention that you are a racist, and all white people are racist, and you can lose you job.
  • You can lose your job because there might be impropriety.
  • And every criminal you catch gets let off.

Needless to say, every police organization in the state thinks this law is bunk. Be prepared to see a lot of police, sheriff and CHP quit and the academies being empty. The trash one has to go through just isn’t worth it.

 

The End of the Suburbs

Gavin Newsom has decided to end the suburbs in California and force us all to live in apartments. Kind of like they do in China and the Soviet Union.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Newsom “essentially abolished single-family zoning in California – and green-lighted a series of bills intended to bolster the state’s housing production.”

SB9 states:

Under the law, local governments will have to approve the applications if the projects meet size requirements and local design standards, fall outside historic and environmentally sensitive districts, and do not require the demolition of housing that is rent-restricted or has been occupied by tenants in the past three years.

In other words, if someone wants to build a house, the house has to be a certain size and the government must approve it. Essentially ending property rights in California.

The second law, SB10 “will allow cities to rezone some parcels in urban areas, including those near public transit, for up to 10 units.”

Not sure what that means for houses already in the rezoned areas. Can the be taken through imminent domain? They’ve done that in downtown Los Angeles.

These laws will not make California a better state and it does not address the regulations, such as rent control, that discourage people from building multi unit dwellings.

This law turns California into an institution.

 

Why Not? It’s Worked So Far

Be prepared never to see a Republican elected to office again in California.

California on Monday became the latest — and the largest — state to adopt the mail-in ballot system. Now, every single eligible voter in California will be mailed ballots for elections without asking for one.

Newsom tweeted:

Here we go:

  • Mail-in voting was not suppose to be permanent.
  • Mail-in voting has shown tons of corruption.
  • Voting shouldn’t be easy and too convenient.

 

About Time

In a final stroke of genius by the Californian governor, he has decided to remove the term “alien” from the California code. It will be replaced by non-citizen.

“As the nation’s most diverse state, we are stronger and more vibrant because of our immigrant communities.

“This important legislation removes the word ‘alien,’ which is not only an offensive term for a human being, but for far too long has fueled a divisive and hurtful narrative. By changing this term, we are ensuring California’s laws reflect our state’s values.”

You know what should also be a state value? Law and order. Sovereignty. Citizenship.

In the past, the Newsom administration said the term is, “a political dog whistle to express bigotry and hatred without using traditionally racist language.”

According to the Oxford dictionary, alien means:

  • belonging to a foreign country or nation.
  • a foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living.

Josie is considered an alien because she wasn’t born here and isn’t a naturalized citizen. It’s not racist, it’s a term and has been through the English languages history. This is another example of Leftists trying to change the language.

No thank you. I’ll just continue to use the term “alien” in the way it was meant.

 

Conclusion

California is become a crap hold and our governor thinks he has a mandate to make it worse. I understand that a lot of people want to stay here because it is a beautiful state and the weather is great. They are hoping the political climate changes in the future.

I have been waiting twenty years and it’s only gotten worse. And the laws being passed make it that it will never change.

Old Joe Keeps Being Unifying

Joe Biden keeps showing how moderate he is with his two recent picks to his administration. Just kidding. Let’s take a look at them.

 

Tracy Stone-Manning

Tracy Stone-Manning has been confirmed by the Senate to the Bureau of Land Management. What’s the big deal about that? She’s a radical eco-terrorist.

Adam Brandon, president of conservative and libertarian advocacy group FreedomWorks, saying it “should come as no surprise” Biden’s nominee holds her views “seeing as she collaborated with eco-terrorist groups with ties to Ted Kaczynski.”

Stone-Manning’s bitter confirmation process was surrounded by controversy, primarily stemming from her links to a 1989 Earth First! tree-spiking plot in an Idaho forest.

She got immunity to testify against her group. She wrote a letter to the Forest Service as part of her deal. According to Fox News:

The letter told the Forest Service that 500 pounds of “spikes measuring 8 to 10 inches in length” had been jammed into the trees of an Idaho forest.

“The sales were marked so that no workers would be injured and so that you a–holes know that they are spiked,” read the letter obtained by Fox News. “The majority of the trees were spiked within the first ten feet, but many, many others were spiked as high as a hundred and fifty feet.”

“P.S., You bastards go in there anyway and a lot of people could get hurt,” the note concluded.

She has also said that she believed we needed to limit the population of the United States to protect the environment.

According to Fox News:

Stone-Manning also took heavy fire for her graduate thesis where she endorsed population control to protect the environment, writing that Americans needed to “breed fewer consuming humans.” She also wrote that parents should stop having children after having two and created a sample advertisement that called a pictured child an “environmental hazard.”

Biden’s new BLM director also wrote in a 1991 essay that Americans should “wage war on overpopulation” to protect grizzly bears.

“We can bicker and moan at each other in our battle about what is going to help the bear now, but ultimately we need to look at maps less, crunch numbers less, and begin to wage war on overpopulation,” Stone-Manning concluded.

Additionally, last year the newly-minted director of BLM shared her husband’s 2018 article suggesting to let houses caught in forest fires “burn.”

Does this sound like a person who cares about Americans?

 

Saule Omarova

This is insane.

Joe Biden nominated Saule Omarova to be the Comptroller of the Currency. She is suppose to run the banks. Let me read what an Op-Ed piece from the Wall Street Journal said about this person:

President Biden checked off another progressive identity box last week by nominating Saule Omarova as Comptroller of the Currency. Some Trump appointees were ridiculed for having supported the elimination of their agencies. Ms. Omarova wants to eliminate the banks she’s being appointed to regulate.

The Cornell University law school professor’s radical ideas might make even Bernie Sanders blush. She graduated from Moscow State University in 1989 on the Lenin Personal Academic Scholarship. Thirty years later, she still believes the Soviet economic system was superior, and that U.S. banking should be remade in the Gosbank’s image.

“Until I came to the US, I couldn’t imagine that things like gender pay gap still existed in today’s world. Say what you will about old USSR, there was no gender pay gap there. Market doesn’t always ‘know best,’” she tweeted in 2019. After Twitter users criticized her ignorance, she added a caveat: “I never claimed women and men were treated absolutely equally in every facet of Soviet life. But people’s salaries were set (by the state) in a gender-blind manner. And all women got very generous maternity benefits. Both things are still a pipe dream in our society!”

Sure, there was a Gulag, and no private property, but maternity benefits!

This woman believes in the communist economy that the Soviet Union created and failed with.

She believes in a central, federal bank which people have to deal with. Private banks should not invest money, should not acquire other banks and businesses, should not be able to give out loans and should not deal with things like 401Ks. All should be done by the centralized, Federal Reserve.

Government sucks at everything. It took me seven months to get my passport “expediated”. Imagine trying to get a business or home loan from the government.

Also, the Soviet Union did have pay equality between genders. Everyone was poor.

Kamala Harris is a Disaster

Last week, Kamala Harris agreed with an anti-Semite high school student and created a scandal with one of our greatest allies in the Middle East. Listen:

Wow!

Couple of things here:

  • Israel is not committing genocide. That is a Leftist talking point.
  • This girl should have been called out as an anti-Semite off the bat or, at least, said she was wrong or didn’t understand the politics over there.
  • The worst term is “your truth”. There’s no such thing. Truth is based on provable facts. It is not subjective.
  • Kamala Harris is really bad at this:
    • She has f-up everything she’s been assigned to.
    • She has no argument about anything.
    • She has a creepy, cackling laugh.
    • The Biden administration is trying to hide her from public view.
  • The big problem is she’s a Leftist and needs to appease her Leftist base.

She is not ready to be President. I’ll even go so far as to say she will never be ready. She is an embarrassment in historic fashion for the first woman as Vice President and people are praying she doesn’t push Old Joe down the stairs yet to become President.

Harris’ staff contacted the Democratic Majority for Israel and its president, Mark Mellman, to reaffirm her support for Israel.

Mellman stated:

“We were pleased Vice President Harris’s senior staff reached out to us today to confirm what we already knew: Her ‘commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering.’”

Of course, this guy is also kind of a Leftist that is also against Israeli policies. This is a weak attempt to fix anything. The woman who is next in line to be President is looking like an anti-Semite.

So, what are you going to do? How about getting a couple of people to teach Kamala to be a human being. That’s what her group did.

According to Reuters:

“Lorraine Voles and Adam Frankel, who worked with Harris during the transition, have joined the team and will focus on strategic communications, long-term planning and organizational development, a White House official with knowledge of the matter said. Their experience has been and will continue to be a valuable resource for our whole team, as we map out long-term planning and fulfill the administration’s ambitious policy agenda.”

What does it mean to “fulfill the administration’s ambitious policy agenda”? It means they are going to teach her how to be a politician and lie better.

According to the Washington Examiner:

“Lorraine Voles, a crisis communications expert, and Adam Frankel, a former Obama speechwriter, worked for Harris during the presidential transition and have extensive experience crafting messages from the White House and the corporate world. Among the services Voles advertises on her website, ‘crisis management’ and ‘marketing and rebranding’ earn top billing.”

Not going to work. Kamala has sucked for way too long. Heck, her own state didn’t want her as President when she was running. I guess sleeping your way into politics (Willie Brown) does not make one a politician.

Good luck Kamala!

Episode 424 – Blah, Blah, Blah!

The reconciliation bill and infrastructure bill are in trouble…Thank God.

Joe Biden continues to show, through his picks, how moderate he is.

Kamala Harris is terrible.

And Greta is back!

 

Opening Monologue: The Halloween Costume

 

The Economic Debate

The Debt Ceiling

The debt ceiling has been temporarily suspended. This will allow the government to continue running until December 3rd.

  • The House approved the bill, 254-175.
  • The Senate approved the measure 65-35.
  • President Biden signed the bill on Thursday night.

The thought that this may show that Republicans are as nervous of meeting the debt ceiling as the Democrats and they might negotiate a reconciliation bill. Remember, that same bill they were suppose to vote on tonight?

Yeah, well, no.

The Democrats do have some ideas, though, on getting around the debt ceiling. Yeah, yeah, eliminate the filibuster but that was so three months ago and it’s not going to happen:

The first idea is to create a trillion dollar coin. Newsweek explains:

The idea of minting a trillion-dollar commemorative coin to shore up the nation’s finances comes from an obscure law that gives the U.S. Treasury Secretary the authority to “mint and issue platinum bullion coins and proof platinum coins in accordance with such specifications, designs, varieties, quantities, denominations, and inscriptions as the Secretary, in the Secretary’s discretion, may prescribe from time to time.”

Proponents have picked up on the “denominations” note there, arguing that any amount could be minted at a normal coin size and deposited into the Federal Reserve to prevent a national debt crisis.

The idea is we could pay off our debt with this coin. This is not a new idea. Barrack Obama, during the debt ceiling crisis on his term, thought about it. He said in 2017:

“There was this theory that I had the authority to issue through the mint this massive $1 trillion coin and on that basis we could try to pay off US Treasurys. It was a very realistic possibility that we couldn’t get the votes for that and we couldn’t get those debts rolled over and we would be in a situation where we were technically in default. At that point, you were in uncharted territory.”

There are some problems with this that Barrack Obama knew about:

  • This is not different than just printing money.
  • It also seems to be going back to the gold standard.
  • It is a fake solution. It doesn’t actually address the problem which is over spending.
  • And where are they going to get the money to pay for this coin? Taxes.
  • Finally, this is not who we are. We need to deal with the spending and the debt. Not create an artificial solution.

The other way to deal with this is far more realistic but more devastating. Janet Yellen, the horrible Secretary of the Treasury, has told us she’s in favor of ending the debt ceiling altogether. Now understand, the reason there is a debt ceiling is to control spending. What she is saying is that we should not have a limit on spending and we she just pay debt by adding to the debt.

That’s like having a credit card with a limit of $500 and, when the limit was reached, the limit could be raised so that you could pay off your credit card with the same credit card you’re trying to pay off. Do you see a problem with that?

This will cause:

  • Inflation.
  • High taxes.
  • Austerity.
  • Job loss.
  • Innovation loss.

This has been tried before. Look at Japan. Guess what happened to them. They have been economically stagnant since the 90s.

 

Reconciliation Bill

The reconciliation bill is in huge trouble. The Democrats, per Bernie Sanders and the Squad, wanted the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, or budget bill, voted on before the “bipartisan” infrastructure bill. Democratic Senators and Reps said they would not vote for the “bipartisan” infrastructure bill if the reconciliation bill was not passed first. All $3.5 trillion (actually $5.5 trillion).

Democrats may have painted themselves into a corner because they only have a three vote lead in the House and are, as of now, down by four votes in the Senate. Bernie Sanders is looking to undermine the bill by saying he will not vote for the infrastructure bill. He tweeted on Monday:

Here’s the problem he fails to see: Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, who are part of the Democratic caucus, never agreed that this bill was a good idea and were against it from the beginning. Joe Machin wrote an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal a couple of months ago explaining why it was a bad idea and pointed out that the pandemic proves we need to curtail spending.

So Bernie, last night, went after those two:

This has never been a strategy I’ve understood. Instead of trying to convince these two Senators, let’s just yell at them. That’ll change their minds! Yeah, no.

Also, Bernie is taking the “math is racist” thing and using it for his benefit. It isn’t two Senators that are going to end this bill, it is fifty-two Senators that are going to kill the bill.

So here’s what’s happening at this moment:

  • The infrastructure bill vote, which was suppose to be last night, has been postponed because the reconciliation bill negotiations have stalled.
  • Negotiations continue as of this morning.
  • Joe Manchin says the bill can be around $2 trillion and must include the Hyde Amendment.

I have a feeling this bill will not be voted on until next week…maybe.

She’s Back!

I miss Greta Thunberg. She’s been gone a while. And, since she turned 18, we can say anything about her and we can’t be accused of attacking a child even though, mentally, she is a child because of her mental deficiencies. That might even be controversial if it weren’t for the fact it’s true and she is given so much credibility by the Left.

She’s:

  • Dumb.
  • Doesn’t understand science.
  • Doesn’t understand climate.
  • Never gives arguments in her speeches.
  • Just yells at us.
  • And, watching her last speech, looks like she needs a shower and should wash her hair with some not-environmentally-friendly shampoo.

Good news for her, though! She doesn’t need to use words anymore to make her point. Listen to her speech at a Youth 4 Climate event in Italy:

Couple of things:

Episode 423 – I Told You So

I knew there was a reason the Left kept saying math was racist.

I hate to say it but I told you so. I just didn’t think it would be this fast.

Biden is getting thrown under the bus by his own staff.

And, dude, they’re just movies.

 

I Knew There Was a Reason Math is Racist

Remember we had a podcast where we talked about math being racist because there is always a right answer? They talked about how we should be more flexible with answers to make math more equitable? Yeah, well, now we know why. Apparently the new narrative for this $3.5 trillion package that the Biden administration wants to push is going to actually cost nothing. Everyone is pushing this now. Listen to this quick montage:

This has to be, without a doubt, one of the craziest things I’ve ever heard. What’s more, if you listen to the logic, it’s just a lie. I find it amazing that these guys are all on the same page when it comes to this. Old Joe, Jen Psaki, Leftist House Reps, MSNBC, CNN are all saying the exact same thing.

OK, so this is what Biden is thinking. With this $3.5 trillion budget, Old Joe is assuming his tax bill will come out where he raises taxes, allegedly, on corporations and people making over $400,000. He wants to use all the taxes he steals over the next ten years to pay for the budget bill, which has a ten year life. Therefore, we would not be adding to the national debt and that means it will cost $0.

OK, as you’ve guessed, there are a few problems with this:

  • The bill will cost $3.5 trillion, no matter what. The government doesn’t have it. They have to take it from someone.
  • It’s not going to cost the government anything, it’s going to cost us!
  • The rich, even if you take all their money, won’t add up to $3.5 trillion in ten years. The tax bill states that it will make the money in 15 year not 10! Where’s that money going to come from. Maybe it’ll go into the debt!
  • And the tax bill does not just tax the rich. There are taxes in the bill (like the nicotine tax) that will affect the middle and lower classes.
  • And the rich already pay taxes! The top 50% pay all of the net taxes. The lower 20% pay 0% net taxes.
  • The bill is also said not to cost $3.5 trillion but $4.2 trillion. That doesn’t include the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill which will probably be closer to $2 trillion.
  • Then you got to think about the economy. This is a recession bill. If one taxes the corporations and the innovators, guess what they’re not going to do? Hire people and innovate. This will cause people to need government assistance and, the lack of innovation will cause less profits which leads to less taxes.

Nancy Pelosi is a better politician. She’s going to pull an Obamacare Jedi mind trick on us. Which is weird because Jedi are bad people (more of that later). She said we should just ignore the money needed for this bill. Listen:

It’s not about the money… Forget about the numbers…

She can’t even get through her statement with a straight face or a clear sentence. But, believe it or not, it makes more sense than Joe Biden’s BS. At least she’s saying we shouldn’t worry about the money, not that it’s not going to cost anything. Even with that people are like…huh?

So here’s what’s happening:

  • They are voting for the budget bill and the infrastructure bill this week.
  • The debt ceiling is going to be hit this week. This could shut the government down and we could end up defaulting on loans.
  • More than likely we will default on bonds for those that bought from the government within the United States. You might have noticed the stock market is tanking.
  • The government shutting down, which is actually quite irrelevant, will probably have a coin trick pulled to keep it going. But who cares.
  • Democrats can pass a modified budget deal through reconciliation but, without the debt ceiling being raised (and it will add to the debt), Democrats are going to have to own the debt. This is a great move.
  • They must push reconciliation because they have lost Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. They will not have a majority in the Senate and Republicans will filibuster this bill and probably both bills.

Democrats are screwed here.

  • They’re going to have to use reconciliation. They won’t be able to do it again. There’s no chance of breaking a filibuster.
  • Chances are, they won’t use reconciliation because they don’t have a majority in the Senate.
    • Not one Republican supports this.
    • Remember, Joe Machin and Kyrsten Sinema said “no”.
  • With the debt ceiling halted, the Democrats are going to have to own the debt.
  • The 2022 election is in one year. No one in the swamp is going to risk a huge loss on the bills and have to explain this to their voters.

This bill is not getting through. This is going to be a huge loss for the Biden administration. Amazing that in less than a year, this Presidency is over.

 

I Told You So

I love being right. Especially two days after I made the prediction.

DeSantis’s office announced the following three actions in a statement.

  • First, Governor DeSantis has issued Executive Order 21-223 to prohibit all Florida agencies under the purview of the Governor from facilitating illegal immigration into Florida, unless otherwise required by federal or state law, and require the collection of information from state officials on the scope and costs of illegal immigration in Florida.
  • Second, Governor DeSantis announced the appointment of Larry Keefe, former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, as Public Safety Czar to ensure the actions directed by the executive order are carried out.
  • Finally, Governor DeSantis and Attorney General Moody announced that Florida has filed suit against the Biden Administration challenging its “catch and release” policy.

Told you so.

Biden is getting Thrown Under the Bus

There are hearings about the Afghanistan debacle. The three being interviewed are Army Gen. Mark Milley, United States military Central Command (CENTCOM) commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. There were some interesting revelations.

 

We Still Don’t Know What He Was Doing

Gen. Mark Milley released a statement about the his alleged attempt to deride President Trump. He released this statement:

The calls on 30 October and 8 January were coordinated before and after with Secretary Esper and Acting Secretary Miller’s staffs and the interagency. The specific purpose of the October and January calls was generated by concerning intelligence which caused us to believe the Chinese were worried about an imminent attack by the U.S.

I know, I am certain, President Trump did not intend on attacking the Chinese and it is my directed responsibility – to convey presidential orders and intent. My job at that time was to de-escalate. My message again was consistent: calm, steady, deescalate. We are not going to attack you.

At Secretary of Defense Esper’s direction, I made a call to General Li on 30 October. Eight people sat in the call with me, and I read out the call within about 30 minutes of the call ending.

On 31 December, the Chinese requested a call with me. The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asia Pacific Policy helped coordinate my call which was scheduled for 8 January. 11 people attended the call with me. Read-outs of this call were distributed to the interagency that same day.

Shortly after my call ended with General Li, I informed both Secretary of State Pompeo and White House Chief of Staff Meadows about the call among other topics. Soon after that, I attended a meeting with Acting Secretary Miller where I briefed him on the call.

He later said he had no intention to usurp President Trump.

You know what I learned from this statement? Nothing. He doesn’t deny anything, he admits nothing and only says that he followed the communication protocols.

What is disturbing is that Milley spent a lot of time being interviewed by Bob Woodward for his book. A lot of that stuff should have been kept private. That’s enough for me. He should resign or be fired.

 

How Does He Still Not Know?

Since this disaster in Afghanistan, the Biden administration has said that there are less than 100 Americans and visa holders in Afghanistan and probably most don’t want to leave. But, whenever pressed, nobody seems to really knows how many people are still there.

When asked if there were, in fact, 4000 Americans and visa holders still left in Afghanistan, Austin said:

“I personally don’t believe that there are 4,000 American citizens still left in Afghanistan.”

In other words, he doesn’t know. I can be pretty sure if he doesn’t know, neither does the Biden administration.

 

Caught in a Lie

We know that the Biden administration has a way of stretching the truth to put it lightly. He lies, to put it factually. But, so far, a lot of the lies weren’t actually researched by the legacy media outside of a few Conservative outlets. But, while Austin, Milley and McKenzie are under oath, the truth came out. And the truth is that Joe Biden is an f-ing liar.

The big question everyone wanted answered is what advice did Biden get. This is important because, as we shall find out, does Joe Biden own the mess. After listening to Milley and McKenzie we find out Biden does own this whole thing:

Some things:

  • Both Milley and McKenzie said they agreed with keeping troops in Afghanistan and, apparently, so did General Miller who is the ground officer.
  • I love that they are trying to give cover by saying they can’t tell anyone about what they told the President. We can assume the answer is, yes, we told him.

Finally, what did Biden actually tell George Stefenopolis, who was a Clinton communications director. You may not remember what Old Joe said. We know Old Joe doesn’t remember. Let’s listen to it:

  • He contradicts himself a little bit. No, he contradicts himself in the same sentence.
  • He says there was a split in opinion then everyone agreed. Which is it Joe.
  • By the way, Stefenopolis knows Biden is in trouble here and is working to get him to give the right answer.
  • The key phrase in this statement is “…that I recall”. Old Joe is giving himself a way out. A way to say he didn’t lie.
  • Or he just can’t remember cause he’s mentally compromised.

So, right here, Secretary Austin is cornered and under oath. Here’s his answer:

Couple of things:

  • I hate politicians. No one asked Austin if Biden is honest. Did he know the recommendations or not?
  • Finally, notice all these guys all say the same thing. “We can’t say what we said to the President”?
  • If the President asked for a recommendation and that was their recommendation and Austin is saying they gave the recommendation to the President then then the President knew the recommendations and did what he wanted anyway.

Hey, Biden wasn’t listening to anyone. He did what he wanted to do and damn the consequences. Even if those consequences means 13 soldiers and a couple of hundred Afghans are dead and we may have left 4000 Americans and visa holders behind.

We see this by the final clip which talks about what advice Old Joe got when the crap hit the fan. Listen:

Old Joe didn’t care. He was getting out of Afghanistan. Period.

 

Conclusion

Few things here:

  • This is all on Joe Biden. He made the decision against his generals.
  • Joe Biden lied about the status of what is happening in Afghanistan before and after the fall. He has lied about the number of Americans there. He has lied about the advice he has been given.
  • The leadership in his administration will not take it in the butt for his, and only his, decision on Afghanistan. They won’t lie for him.
  • This is all on Joe Biden and only Joe Biden.
  • Finally, Joe Biden is going to have to come clean.
    • Did you get the recommendations? Why did you ignore them?
    • Did you not get the recommendations? Why aren’t these guys fired?
    • Do you remember? Are you competent?

Old Joe is in trouble.

Dude, It’s a Movie

I think the Daily Wire has really hit the mark when it comes to the state of science and scientific publication:

Scientific American, founded in 1845, has published such brilliant minds as Albert Einstein, Linus Pauling, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, and explored subjects as diverse as perpetual motion and solar neutrinos.

These days, however, the magazine is concerning itself with somewhat different topics — like how “problematic” the fictional space warriors known as Jedi are.

Yeah. The Jedi order is racist. The title of the Scientific American piece, “Why the Term ‘JEDI’ Is Problematic for Describing Programs That Promote Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. The Jedi are inappropriate mascots for social justice.”

Jesus Christ, help us!

According to this piece, there are four problems with Luke, Obi-Wan and Yoda:

[The Jedi] are a religious order of intergalactic police-monks, prone to (white) saviorism and toxically masculine approaches to conflict resolution (violent duels with phallic lightsabers, gaslighting by means of “Jedi mind tricks,” etc.)…

  • Police are bad. No matter what their motivations.
  • I’m not sure what the “white saviorism” means. Half of the Jedi were aliens!
    • Last I checked, Lando Calrissean (who wasn’t a Jedi but worked with them) and

Episode 422 – Probably Too Soon

A potential assassin gets released.

There appears another mess is brewing in the Middle East.

And what is wrong with those people in New York.

 

Probably Too Soon

John Hinckley Jr., the man who attempted to assassinate former President Ronald Reagan in 1981, won unconditional release from his state-mandated supervision on Monday.

The deal was made by the DOJ and Hinkley’s attorney,  Barry Levine and was approved by a judge.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kacie Weston agreed to the deal with one provision. Hinckley should be monitored for nine more months because he had not lived on his own in four decades and because one of his primary doctors is retiring.

This was the second time the DOJ was asked to release Hinkley. A few months ago, the DOJ denied letting him go. Now, after three different reviews, they finally found he is able to go free though he must go through nine months of observation so he can get used to living in the world today.

He does have some limits.

  • He cannot contact any of the families of the victims.
  • He cannot contact Jodie Foster.
  • He cannot own a gun.

You might remember, if you’re as old as I am, that Hinkley tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan in 1981. He shot Reagan, who almost died, Secret Service agent Timothy McCarthy, Washington police Officer Thomas Delahanty and Reagan press secretary James Brady, who ended up paralyzed.

He pleaded not guilty for reason of insanity, claiming that he was trying to impress movie star, Jodie Foster, who he became obsessed with after watching the movie Taxi Driver. He was found not guilty and was sent to a mental institution for the past 40 years.

He is 66 years old.

There are Some Pretty Important Stuff Happening

The Islamic Republic of Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, has failed to honor a key agreement that it reached with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) just a couple of weeks ago.

The deal reached between the two sides would allow the IAEA’s inspectors to service damaged monitoring equipment at one of Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The Agency stated:

The (IAEA) Director General (Rafael Grossi) stresses that Iran’s decision not to allow agency access to the TESA Karaj centrifuge component manufacturing workshop is contrary to the agreed terms of the joint statement issued on 12 September. …

Iran from 20–22 September permitted IAEA inspectors to service identified agency monitoring and surveillance equipment and to replace storage media at all necessary locations in Iran with the exception of the centrifuge component manufacturing workshop at the TESA Karaj complex.

This is happening while Iran is gaining the ability to create enough nuclear material to create a nuclear weapon. Don’t forget, Iran is constantly threatening Israel, wanting to wipe Israel off the map. Israel has promised that they would not allow Iran to create a nuclear weapon. In the past six months, there have been multiple “accidents” against nuclear facilities, energy production facilities and military ships. Though many were marked as accidents, Iran has accused Israel of sabotage. Israel never denied anything.

Israeli Prime Minister, Benny Gantz, said that the issue of Iran getting a nuclear weapon is becoming more serious. In August, Gantz said, ““only around 10 weeks away from acquiring weapons-grade materials necessary for a nuclear weapon.”

On September 13th, the New York Times reported:

“Experts studying new data contained in reports last week by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations’ atomic inspection group, say that by enriching nuclear fuel in recent months to near bomb-grade levels, Tehran has gained the capability to produce the fuel needed for a single nuclear warhead within a month or so, … A report issued on Monday by the Institute for Science and International Security, a private group that specializes in analyzing the findings of the United Nations agency, concludes that a race over the summer to enrich uranium at 60 percent purity — just below bomb grade — has put Iran in a position to produce the fuel for a single bomb in ‘as short as one month.’”

So much for bringing Iran into the world community. Iran lies and cannot be trusted. The Obama and, now, the Biden strategy for Iran has failed, more than once. It is going to be up to Israel to deal with it because their survival as a state depends on it. And now, with Biden’s weakness in Afghanistan, Iran is becoming more emboldened.

This is dangerous stuff. Iran is already giving weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah. Is it really hard to believe they would give a dirty bomb or a nuclear weapon to those groups to attack Israel? No, of course not. Be prepared for a bunch of secret missions aimed at the nuclear facilities from Israel and America does nothing but bitch and moan about Israel.

This is Insane

Did you think New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was bad? Enter The New York Governor, Kathy Hochul. I want you to listen to this clip that is flying around the Internet right now. It is very disturbing:

Couple of things:

  • So if you don’t want to take the vaccine, you don’t believe in God. In fact, you’re defying God.
  • She wears her vaccine tag like a Christian wears a cross. She has made the vaccine into a religious symbol.
  • By the way, this is blasphemous. “Thou shall not commit idolatry.”
  • Again, if you’re not vaccinated, you’re stupid. Great way to convince people.
  • I just want to point out Joe Biden took his booster on television yesterday…while wearing a mask. Great messaging.
  • “Be my apostles”? Is she seriously comparing herself to Jesus Christ?
  • And, if we don’t want the vaccine, we don’t love our families and friends?
  • And, there it is, we need to fight racism and we can’t until all bend the knee and take the vaccine.

This is crazy crap and it shows a lot about this woman and the Left. By the way, I have a real hard time buying any comment about God and Jesus from a woman who thinks we should be able to kill a baby up to the moment of birth. I’m pretty sure Jesus said, “Blessed are the children.”

But her insanity continues today. Seriously, how do these people actually get elected? She has now thrown down a vaccine mandate that is the strictest in the country:

Couple of things:

  • This is tyrannical.
  • Do what I say or lose your job.
  • Weren’t healthcare workers heroes just a few months ago?
  • Didn’t they work in the hospitals for a year without a vaccine available and they were hailed for it?
  • Isn’t it New York that was bitching that their hospitals were at capacity and they had a healthcare worker shortage?

This is coming to other blue states. Wait until Gavin Newsom of California, who is emboldened by winning his recall election, tries to meet this insanity. It’s going to happen.

What’s going to need to happen is what is happening in New York City: people protesting. A question that is being asked by Conservatives is, because BLM is now against vaccine mandates and passports, are we going to see riots soon and is that a bad thing?

I don’t know.
