Accusations from the Left versus Actions from the Left

Featured

I have a hard time figuring out the Left.

On one hand, they accuse the Right of: On the other hand, they commit:
Insurrection when people enter the Capitol (most just wandering through the halls like well-controlled tourists) What seems to be a revolt when they pledge to become “ungovernable
Having no compassion for our fellow citizens when we do not submit our bodies to “the jab” One supreme act of non-compassion as they make baby-killing the hill they will (only metaphorically) die on
Racism by proxy due to the acts of the Buffalo shooter What seems to be a degree of support (considering that the left-leaning social media published the Buffalo shooter’s video while blocking many conservative videos)
Violence when a Marxist, climate-change nut who wrote a manifesto indefensibly shoots Blacks because of their skin color Themselves to rioting in the streets over the possibility of losing Roe v Wade (never mind that most Planned Parenthoods are built in minority communities and that minority businesses were razed during the left-wing 2020 George Floyd riots)
Being racist when another person commits a racist act (like that at Buffalo) The soft racism of selective attention by ignoring the attack on an American-Taiwanese church and the attack on the Christmas parade
Dictatorship when five out of nine Justices vote to return the issue of abortion to be voted on by the states (when, 49 years ago, seven robed men discovered the right to abortion in the Constitution) Hypocrisy over dictatorships (as when Biden turned to Venezuelan dictator for oil after Biden unilaterally cancels U.S. lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska)
Promoting the concept of “Replacement theory” recently through media personalities like Tucker Carlson More hypocrisy (since the New York Times published We can replace them in October 2018 and  replacement theory has often been the topic of choice at Politico and other left-wing rags)

 

Liberals do the exact opposite to solve the problem

Canada euthanizes the poor

The B.C. Catholic reports that Canada has committed to euthanizing its poor rather than treating them.

There is an endlessly repeated witticism by the poet Anatole France that ‘the law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.’ What France certainly did not foresee is that an entire country – and an ostentatiously progressive one at that – has decided to take his sarcasm at face value and to its natural conclusion.

Since last year, Canadian law, in all its majesty, has allowed both the rich as well as the poor to kill themselves if they are too poor to continue living with dignity. In fact, the ever-generous Canadian state will even pay for their deaths. What it will not do is spend money to allow them to live instead of killing themselves.

As with most slippery slopes, it all began with a strongly worded denial that it exists. In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada reversed 22 years of its own jurisprudence by striking down the country’s ban on assisted suicide as unconstitutional, blithely dismissing fears that the ruling would ‘initiate a descent down a slippery slope into homicide’ against the vulnerable as founded on ‘anecdotal examples’. The next year, Parliament duly enacted legislation allowing euthanasia, but only for those who suffer from a terminal illness whose natural death was ‘reasonably foreseeable’.

Rather than wasting the resource of a human life, why not provide the healthcare you famously promised?

God gifted us with the advantage of life. For those who have sound mind and means (as do most who are in governmental positions), to allow others in their sway to slip into death due to governmental negligence is unconscionable.

Biden wants to put out the inflation fire by pouring government-spending gasoline on it

The New York Times suggested in a 11 November 2021 article that Biden’s plan to spend more government money would magically cure inflation (which they must have seen as more favorable than contradicting another Democrat).

Rocketing inflation has become a headache for U.S. consumers, and President Biden has a go-to prescription. He says a key way to help relieve increasing prices is to pass a $1.85 trillion collection of spending programs and tax cuts that is currently languishing in the Senate.

A wide range of economists agree with the president — but only in part. They generally accept his argument that in the long run, the bill and his infrastructure plan could make businesses and their workers more productive, which would help to ease inflation as more goods and services are produced across the economy.

But many researchers, including a forecasting firm that Mr. Biden often cites to support the economic benefits of his proposals, say the bill is structured in a way that could add to inflation next year, before prices have had time to cool off.

From the way Biden has approached inflation, it seems that he has not looked at history

It seems that he has not looked at the hyperinflationary actions of Venezuela when they compounded the problem of skyrocketing consumer costs by printing more money. Likewise, as pointed out by Elizabeth Ames in her promotion of her book with Steve Forbes and Nathan Lewis, it seems that Biden has not reviewed the history of the 1970’s (when raising interest rates only pushed the nation into recession).

Instead of these options, Biden might follow the example of Paul Volcker (who killed inflation by stabilizing the dollar) (a concept mentioned by Elizabeth Ames during an interview on News Radio KTRH).

How government spending fuels inflation

The Wall Street Journal presents a common-sense view of how government spending adds to the problem of inflation.

Annual inflation in the U.S. rose to 7.5% in January, the highest it’s been since February 1982, when it was 7.6% and declining. This current crisis, economist John Cochrane says, came as “a complete surprise” to the Federal Reserve. “All of the governors who reported forecasts, all of the staff, missed it.” When he calls this an “institutional failure,” he sounds almost kind.

Mr. Cochrane, 64, parses the present inflation in a conversation by Zoom from his house in Palo Alto, Calif., near Stanford University, where he’s a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution. His tone is wry, and it’s obvious he doesn’t hold this Fed in the greatest esteem. “They’re leading us in the dark,” he says, “with a great pretense of knowing exactly what the map is in front of us.”

(continued)

He traces the present inflation to the pandemic and the government’s response. Starting in March 2020, “the Treasury issued $3 trillion of new debt, which the Fed quickly bought in return for $3 trillion of new reserves.” The Treasury then sent checks to people and businesses, later borrowing another $2 trillion and sending more checks. Overall federal debt rose nearly 30%. “Is it at all a surprise,” Mr. Cochrane asks, “that a year later inflation breaks out?”

Good news regarding three liberal attempts on our freedom

Judge strikes down California’s corporate racial diversity law

The Daily Wire reports on the acts of a Judge in Los Angeles.

A California law that would have required corporations based in the state to include racial minorities and LGBT people on their executive boards was struck down by a judge in Los Angeles Friday.

The law was declared unconstitutional by a judge in the Los Angeles County Superior Court in a lawsuit brought by conservative legal organization Judicial Watch, the Associated Press reported. The ruling did not explain the Court’s reasoning.

The law was signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom in 2020. It would have required publicly traded companies headquartered in California to have at least one member on their executive boards of directors from an “underrepresented community,” which included African Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, or members of the LGBT community, by the end of 2021, either by adding an executive position or filling an existing vacancy. By the end of 2022, the law would have required companies with boards of 4-9 directors to have at least two directors from minority communities, and boards with 9 or more members to have at least three minority directors. Firms that did not comply would have faced fines of up to $100,000 dollars for first offenses and $300,000 for repeated offenses, AP reported.

The suit was filed by Judicial Watch in October 2020. The organization said that using taxpayer dollars to enforce “[l]aws that explicitly distinguish between individuals on racial or ethnic, sexual preference, and transgender status grounds fall within the core of the prohibition of the equal protection clause.” California defended the law by arguing that the measure did not “discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.” Citing a report from the California Secretary of State, AP also reported that about 300 of the 700 corporations that fell under the law had complied, while half of the companies had not even filed a mandated disclosure statement on the racial makeup of their boards. But to date, no companies had been fined, and the state argued in Court that no taxpayer dollars actually had been used to enforce the measure.

While preventing people from working due to things beyond their control is bad, this law did not remedy that.

Why the lawmakers decided to go beyond the model of stopping evil is beyond me.

Instead, they decide to create a new class of elites on company boards. Furthermore, membership in this elite class is based on being within one of the following groups: “African Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, or members of the LGBT community.”

Do you have to speak Spanish to be in the Latino community? What proofs are there of being in any of the LGBT communities? What if I claim to be bisexual. What proof do I have to provide?

A liberal college still has to pay for defaming a local small business

The Daily Wire points out how Oberlin College has been required to pay Gibson’s Bakery for defaming it.

An appellate court on Thursday upheld a decision that resulted in a massive award for Gibson’s Bakery after Oberlin College supported and encouraged students who falsely accused the bakery of racism.

Oberlin appealed the verdict against them, which awarded the family of Gibson’s Bakery $25 million in compensatory and punitive damages (a number that was reduced from $33 million in punitive damages due to Ohio tort reform law) and more than $6 million in attorney’s fees. On Thursday, the Ohio’s Ninth District Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s finding, meaning Oberlin will, indeed, have to pay the Gibsons millions of dollars.

Sadly, as Legal Insurrection’s William A. Jacobson reported, the two family members who served as the lead plaintiffs – David Gibson and his father Allyn – passed away before the decision was upheld, though they did live to see the original verdict. David had previously revealed he had been diagnosed with cancer and that Oberlin was purposefully dragging out the case.

As The Daily Wire previously reported, several non-white Oberlin students attempted to steal alcohol from Gibson’s, a local bakery with a long history of serving the Oberlin community. A Gibson family member who was working at the bakery that day chased the students out of the store, where they attacked him. He called the police and the students were arrested, pleading guilty and admitting race had nothing to do with the incident.

But other students and faculty accused the bakery of racism and staged protests outside, with Oberlin officials fully endorsing and supporting the protesters’ (false) narrative. Further, while Oberlin claimed in court the protests were peaceful, some demonstrators actually entered the bakery and harassed customers, taking pictures of them and making disparaging comments to them. They also blocked customers from moving down the aisles and slashed the tires of a store employee.

Biden’s war-time moves on gasoline are angering the environmentalists

The Washington Examiner shows us how Biden has managed to anger even the environmentalists through his war-time moves on the oil/gas industries.

President Joe Biden’s efforts to stabilize the global oil market while simultaneously decreasing gas prices for drivers have baffled and infuriated some green energy activists.

Biden announced Thursday that the United States would release 180 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve over the next six months, use the revenue from the sales to refill the stockpile, and called on Congress to pass legislation fining oil companies with unused federal drilling permits or dormant wells on federally leased land. The president also utilized the Defense Production Act to surge domestic procurement of critical minerals the administration says are essential to achieving clean energy independence.

Biden’s announcement came just days after the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Evergreen Action, Common Defense, Win Without War, Indivisible, Sierra Club, and a coalition of nearly 100 “climate, veteran, foreign policy, and progressive organizations” launched a campaign to pressure Biden and Democrats to make “swift investments in clean energy to reduce our dependence on foreign authoritarian leaders like Vladimir Putin and oil companies that are price-gouging Americans at the pump.”

“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine reaffirms that America must lead the world in a clean energy transition. Our dependence on fossil fuel empowers authoritarians like Vladimir Putin, rogue oil-producing nations, and price-gouging oil companies,” the group wrote in a statement. “For the sake of our national security and planet, we call on America’s leaders to take immediate action to invest in domestic clean energy jobs and end our dependence on fossil fuel.”

Meanwhile, a number of activists reacted to Biden’s announcement by claiming that the administration was rewarding the “greed” of oil companies.

Collin Rees, a spokesman for Oil Change International expressed frustration with Biden’s action, calling the decision a “small bandage on a gaping wound” in a statement.

“The fossil fuel industry’s greed is hurting working people at the pump, and we should tax those windfall profits and give relief directly to families in need — not count on indirect signals and the market to help when immediate aid is needed,” Rees wrote. “The solution must be a wartime mobilization to transform our energy system, not doubling down on a volatile fossil-fueled system driving the climate crisis, worsening conflict, and boosting economic inequality.”

“Releasing more oil from the strategic reserve won’t address the root cause of this high prices: Big Oil’s coordinated campaign to gouge Americans at the pump,” Fossil Free Media Director Jamie Henn added on Twitter. “A better solution would be to pass the windfall profits tax proposed in Congress, which guarantees immediate relief to Americans without undermining the administration’s climate goals. Big Oil should pay for the problem they’ve created.”

This is just one more Biden “I did this” sticker 

This is proof positive that Biden meant to kill our economy. He still means to kill our economy (since he does not understand that our economy needs oil).

 

Biden draws a bead on his real enemy: anti-socialists


Joe Biden channels various historic figures while targeting anti-socialists

Joe “Robinette” Stalin punishes his own people by announcing a U.S. ban on Russian oil

Reuters cites the words of Joe as America faces another round of Biden-instigated jumps in gasoline (and everything) prices.

JoeStealinU.S. President Joe Biden announced a ban on Russian oil and other energy imports on Tuesday in retaliation for the invasion of Ukraine, underscoring strong bipartisan support for a move that he acknowledged would drive up U.S. energy prices.

“We’re banning all imports of Russian oil and gas energy,” Biden told reporters at the White House. “That means Russian oil will no longer be acceptable in U.S. ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s war machine.”

Oil prices jumped on the news, with Benchmark Brent crude LCOc1 for May climbing by 5.4% to $129.91 a barrel by 1345 GMT.

Biden has been working with allies in Europe, who are far more dependent on Russian oil, to isolate Russia’s energy-heavy economy and Putin. Britain announced shortly before Biden’s remarks that it would phase out the import of Russian oil and oil products by the end of 2022.

Biden said sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies had already caused the Russian economy to “crater”. He said the latest moves had been made in close consultation with allies and partners around the world.

When questioned, Joe “Marie Antoinette” Biden quips “let them buy electric cars”

Sky News reports on the tone-deaf comments of Joe “Marie Antoinette” Biden — who thinks cash-strapped Americans who have endured his inflation can pull $55K from the air.

The Biden administration has been labelled “tone deaf” after Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris spent the afternoon promoting electric vehicles in the wake of America’s highest gas prices since 2008.

The Transportation secretary was joined by the VP to commemorate the one year anniversary from when the Biden administration passed the American Rescue Plan Act.

Mr Buttigieg has been criticised for telling Americans electric cars are important for “cost savings”.

“Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people as well,” he said.

“Last month we announced a $5 billion investment to build out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network so that people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings from driving an EV.”

Republican Markwayne Mullin criticised the comments by labelling it “tone deaf” from the Biden administration to be promoting electric vehicles as everyday Americans struggle to pay for gas.

“Vice President Kamala Harris and DOT Secretary Pete Buttigieg spent the afternoon promoting electric vehicles and Green New Deal policies. Are you kidding me?” He tweeted.

“The Biden Administration could not be more tone deaf.”

“Tell me you’re a liberal elite without telling me you’re a liberal elite,” wrote Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Never mind that middle-class families have been laid flat by Biden’s record-breaking inflation and have struggled to just put food on the table and gas in the car. Never mind that he has left the poor behind.

Joe “Benedict Arnold” Biden calls in favors from his fellow socialists

Newsweek tells us of the deals Biden has started to make with other socialist regimes who have imprisoned Americans.

The Biden administration is facing bipartisan backlash over the possibility of easing sanctions against Venezuela in order to allow the country to increase exports of oil.

There was skepticism from both Democrats and Republicans toward the idea after a group of U.S. officials visited Venezuela in the highest-level trip to the South American country in years, as the White House considers whether to ban oil imports from Russia.

The visit comes amid the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine and the imposition of harsh sanctions against the country by the U.S. and its allies. Russia is a major oil and gas exporter.

Some senior U.S. officials traveled to Venezuela on Saturday and conducted talks with President Nicolás Maduro’s government.

Venezuela was once a major exporter of crude oil to the U.S. but a combination of mismanagement and U.S. sanctions severely curtailed exports.

The idea of easing sanctions against Venezuela in order to potentially supplement losses from a ban on Russian oil was met with anger and criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) shared a video on Twitter showing Maduro announcing the resumption of talks with the opposition. That announcement came after his government’s meeting with the U.S. delegation.

Did Joe “Neville Chamberlain” Biden negotiate to have Europe, India, or China stop or reduce their Russian oil purchases? Or did he give up everything for an empty deal?

Offshore Engineer magazine says the European Union has produced a plan to reduce use of Russian oil and gas by 2030.

The European Commission published plans on Tuesday to cut EU dependency on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and end its reliance on Russian supplies of the fuel “well before 2030”.

The European Union executive said it would switch to alternative supplies and expand clean energy faster under the plans, which national governments will be largely responsible for implementing.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine last month has triggered an overhaul of the 27-country EU’s energy priorities as Brussels seeks to wrest countries free from depending on Russia, which supplies around 40% of the bloc’s natural gas.

“The answer to this concern for our security lies in renewable energy and diversification of supply,” EU climate policy chief Frans Timmermans said.

“It’s hard, bloody hard. But it’s possible.”

The new plans come on top of climate change policies the EU is currently negotiating, which are designed to cut emissions faster this decade and would alone cut EU gas use 30% by 2030.

(Read more mumbo-jumbo and doublespeak at Offshore Engineer)

No news reports can be found of Biden negotiating deals with the next biggest energy consumers (China and India). Likewise, there is nothing on Biden convincing the Pacific Rim countries or African countries to cut Russian oil.

So, why are we doing this other than to punish American middle-class and poor workers who might support capitalism?

Of course, the poor who have started to join the capitalist movement within Russia (the McDonald’s franchisee, the Coke deliveryman, …) will feel the capricious sting of the liberal-leaning corporations.

Still, for Biden, it’s a win. It advances the cause of socialism worldwide.

Paychecks from Ukrainian oil and gas will likely ensure Biden’s attention to Ukraine

Least you forget, Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi, a Romney protégé, and a Kerry family friend have received paychecks from Ukrainian oil and gas.

Of course, “fact checkers” Politifact, Reuters, USA Today, FactCheck.org and Snopes claimed that it was false that “sons of Pelosi, Romney, and Kerry” (were employed by a Ukrainian gas company).

Details, details, details.

 

Altered states in Biden’s America


The State Of Disunion

The Daily Wire accentuated how Biden’s speech was showed America’s state of disunion.

BidenAgendaBy now you may have forgotten President Joe Biden gave his State of the Union address last week. On Monday, Biden walked across the White House lawn alone and in a mask. On Tuesday, he walked into a crowd of House members rejoicing that no more masks were needed. It was the perfect metaphor for Biden at governance and Biden at speech.

First, forgive Biden for his flubs and twisted words. He is almost 80 and has a stuttering problem. As someone who grew up with a stuttering problem, I’m sympathetic. He is neither Cicero nor Churchill, King nor Kennedy. He is Joe from Scranton. The problem was not the words or delivery. The problem was the message.

The State of the Union address was not for you or for me unless you are a moderate, Democrat-leaning voter who is frustrated with Biden and looking at the GOP for November. Despite all the talk about multiple audiences, Biden is trying to keep wavering moderate voters on board.

He hit on, for example, securing the border. That’s an issue he has done nothing with, but it shows up in the polling as a problem for Democrats, so he mentioned it. He mentioned funding police too. That is another area in which polls show voters trust Republicans more than Democrats. He needs to reassure suburban voters that he is not the radical the loudest Democratic representatives are.

He called Afghanistan an “extraordinary success,” but it polls terribly for him, so he chose not to spend time on it. The whole of the speech after opening about Ukraine sounded like it was written by pollsters panicked by the GOP’s current numbers.

The problem for Biden and the Democrats is simple. This speech is going to be forgotten — if it’s not already forgotten — but the public will still see empty store shelves, high prices and the cost of filling up their cars. The president offered nothing to address these issues. In fact, it is now widely accepted his COVID-19 relief package sparked inflation; the president not only defended it but called for even more spending.

Biden started with a unifying moment about Ukraine. He had applause from both the Republicans and Democrats. He then pivoted straight into an attack on the Trump tax cuts with a lie about those cuts benefiting the top 1%. Even the supposed fact-checkers rebut that.

He continued to call on Congress to pass an agenda Congress has repeatedly failed to pass and to advocate for positions most Americans reject. There was no reset. He doubled down on progressivism. He doubled down on growing government. He refused to offer gas price relief but instead announced he wants to expand the Green New Deal.

Remember, this is the guy who ran as the “great unifier”

Then again, most Americans are unified in their belief that Joe Biden does not have the qualifications needed to be president.

A catatonic state of Republicans

The Ukraine war fever could kill GOP midterm chances

Breitbart points out how Republicans’ focus on the Ukraine war (and not on Biden failures) could take the wind out of the Republican chances.

How does any rational or caring human being watch us lose a 20-year war against cave-dwelling barbarians, and not just lose that war, but lose it in the most humiliating fashion imaginable, and less than a year later already have a war-boner for Ukraine?

I’m convinced the unholy alliance between Neocons, the corporate media, and the Democrat party is the Seventh Seal.

For a moment, let’s forget about the fact that America is incapable of liberating anyone; let’s ignore that our definition of “liberating”  is to spend $4 trillion killing hundreds of thousands of innocents and then abandoning them to the enemy. Instead, how about these apples: 1) Putin is not a cave-dwelling barbarian, and 2) Putin has nuclear weapons.

Well, those apples have been met with what is, without question, the single-most irresponsible thing a public official has uttered in my lifetime…

The silent state of liberal media

CNN, ABC, CBS, BBC, and Bloomberg close Russian broadcasting divisions

Breitbart points out the immediate reaction of certain liberal “news” outlets when Russia implemented a law imposing stiff penalties for spreading “fake news.” So, the “news” agencies who wouldn’t shut up about “Russian/Trump collusion” for five years now silence themselves when threatened over broadcasting “fake news” in Russia.

The West’s severance from Russia became more apparent this week when CNN International, ABC, CBS, and other major news outlets announced they will stop broadcasting in the Eastern European country following its invasion of Ukraine.

The move out of Russia comes in response to the Kremlin introducing a new law that would jail anyone spreading fake news or misinformation about the invasion of Ukraine. Russian officials claim that the United States and Western Europe have been intentionally spreading fake news to spark an uprising against the Kremlin.

“Lawmakers in Moscow passed amendments to the criminal code making the spread of ‘fake’ information an offense punishable with fines or jail terms,” They also imposed fines for anyone calling for sanctions against Russia following the invasion of Ukraine,” according to the Daily Mail.

“The new legislation was passed by parliament and will become law when Vladimir Putin signs it, as he is widely expected to do. It was not clear when Putin would sign the measure,” added the outlet.

People in violation of the law could face up to 15 years in prison. CNN, ABC, CBS, Bloomberg, BBC, and CBC all announced they would be discontinuing their broadcasts.

“CNN will stop broadcasting in Russia while we continue to evaluate the situation and our next steps moving forward,” a network spokesperson said Friday.

“The change to the criminal code, which seems designed to turn any independent reporter into a criminal purely by association, makes it impossible to continue any semblance of normal journalism inside the country,” Bloomberg Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait said in a statement.

CBS, ABC, CBC, and the BBC all made similar announcements. Interim BBC News Director Jonathan Munro confirmed that while broadcasts within the country will be suspended, the network will not be “pulling out journalists from Moscow.”

“We cannot use their reporting for the time being but they remain valued members of our teams and we hope to get them back on our output as soon as possible,” tweeted Munro.

Pelosi and other Democrats work to create a totalitarian state


Pelosi quietly creates her Gestapo and intimidates politicians critical of her January 6 Committee

Representative Nehls accuses Capitol Police of secretly taking photo of documents while in his office

Fox News reports that Representative Troy Nehls has accused the Capitol Police went into his office on two occasions and took pictures.

Texas Rep. Troy Nehls, a Republican, accused the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) of placing him under “investigation” and taking a secret photo of constitutionally-protected legislative documents in his office.

Nehls blasted out a press release on Tuesday with the accusation, saying he was placed under a probe “in which a USCP officer entered his office and took a photo of private Congressional material protected by the Speech and Debate Clause, Article I Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution.”

“The photo was passed up to USCP intelligence analysts and a report was filed citing ‘suspicious writings,’” Nehls’ office wrote in the release. “That following Monday, three plainclothed USCP agents returned to the office, where they questioned a staff member about the contents of the questionably-obtained photo.”

The freshman Republican accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Democrat leadership of “weaponizing Federal agencies to suppress opposing views” in a Tuesday statement to Fox News Digital.

U.S. Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger released a statement on Tuesday defending their officer, saying if “a member’s office is left open and unsecured, without anyone inside the office, USCP officers are directed to document that and secure the office to ensure nobody can wander in and steal or do anything else nefarious.”

“The weekend before Thanksgiving, one of our vigilant officers spotted the congressman’s door was wide open,” Manger said. “That Monday, USCP personnel personally followed up with the congressman’s staff and determined no investigation or further action of any kind was needed. No case investigation was ever initiated or conducted into the representative or his staff.”

If this is not enough, it seems that there are other cases where Capitol Police are accused of invading Congressional offices and are now under investigation by the Inspector General

The Federalist also lets us know how the Inspector General has started looking into accusations of the Capitol Police invading certain offices in Congress.

The inspector general for the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) has opened a formal investigation into whether the law enforcement agency tasked with securing the Capitol has been inappropriately surveilling elected members of Congress, their staff, and visitors to their offices, The Federalist has learned. The opening of the investigation follows news reports and accusations from lawmakers that USCP has overstepped its bounds as it tries to recover from the January 6 riots that tarnished both the Capitol and the reputation of the law enforcement agency that was supposed to keep it safe.

USCP Chief J. Thomas Manger confirmed the opening of the inspector general investigation in his response to congressional inquiries about USCP police tactics, reported in a January 24 article published by Politico, including surveilling and compiling intelligence dossiers on members of Congress, their staff, and visitors.

“While I am confident in our methods, I am asking the USCP Office of the Inspector General to review the USCP’s programs related to these security assessments to assure both this Committee, the Congress as a whole, and the public that these processes are legal, necessary, and appropriate,” Manger wrote to seven Republican lawmakers.

According to the Politico article, USCP analysts had been directed by Julie Farnam, the acting director of USCP’s Intelligence and Interagency Coordination Division, to “run ‘background checks on people whom lawmakers planned to meet, including donors and associates.”

“When staff were listed as attending these meetings, Capitol Police intelligence analysts also got asked to check the social media accounts of the staffers,” the Politico article alleged.

In his letter to lawmakers, Manger denied the allegations detailed in the Politico article and claimed USCP’s activities were both appropriate and legal.

Suspicions that USCP may not be acting appropriately did not arise in a vacuum, however. In November 2021, a USCP officer entered the congressional office of Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Tex., and took a photo of a whiteboard in Nehls’ legislative office detailing various legislative plans being considered by Nehls and his staff. In a formal police report filed several days after the incident, the officer wrote that he had been conducting a routine security patrol on Saturday, November 21, and discovered that one of the doors to Nehls’ office was open.

The report claimed that the officer entered Nehls’ office and found a whiteboard that contained “suspicious writings mentioning body armor[.]” The officer reportedly took a photo of the whiteboard, which was then passed around to analysts within USCP. The following Monday, USCP dispatched three plain-clothed intelligence officers to Nehls’ office and questioned a staffer who was there about the whiteboard and the legislative proposals it contained.

Just days before the USCP officer entered Nehls’ office and took a picture of the whiteboard Nehls and his staff used to brainstorm and catalog legislative ideas, the Washington Post ran a story about a federal government contractor in rural Texas who defrauded the United States by supplying Chinese-made body armor instead of body armor manufactured in the United States.

“From his home in rural Texas, a would-be defense contractor spun a web of fake companies and testing reports to pass off Chinese-made body armor as American equipment that met rigorous standards for use by the State Department and U.S. law enforcement partners in Latin America,” the Washington Post wrote on November 16, 2021. “Tanner Jackson, 32, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Alexandria federal court to one count of wire fraud, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.”

According to Nehls, who previously served as sheriff of Fort Bend County, Texas, his office whiteboard specifically called out faulty Chinese body armor. In fact, that Washington Post article was a key catalyst spurring Nehls to consider drafting legislation banning the procurement of Chinese body armor, a spokesman for Nehls told The Federalist.

What the police report did not include was any reference to multiple items on Nehls’ whiteboard immediately following the words “body armor” referencing Export Administration Regulations dealing specifically with Chinese imports or U.S. Department of Justice standards for certifying body armor.

In correspondence on the matter with the House Administration Committee, USCP Chief Manger said the responding officer who investigated Nehls’ office was also concerned by “an outline of the Rayburn Building with an X marked at the C Street entrance” drawn on the whiteboard. A Nehls spokesman told The Federalist it was little more than a crude map to help an intern find an ice machine in the Rayburn House Office Building.

“If Capitol Police leadership had spent as much time preparing for January 6 as they spent investigating my white board, the January 6 riot never would have happened,” Nehls, a former law enforcement officer, told The Federalist. “When I was a patrol officer responding to a call, I didn’t have the time or authority to go rifling through someone’s personal papers. There are serious 4th Amendment, constitutional issues at play here.”

Although Manger claimed in one e-mail that USCP agents were concerned the whiteboard may have contained a “veiled threat” to Nehls’ life, USCP never personally contacted Nehls to warn him that he may have been in danger, Nehls told The Federalist.

The Capitol Police’s treatment of Nehls and his office only fueled the fire of suspicion between lawmakers and USCP leadership that had been smoldering following the January 6 riot. One Republican congressional aide told The Federalist that rather than addressing the massive security and intelligence failures by USCP that allowed the post-election protests to spiral into riots, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instead doubled down on failure and used the uproar as a pretext for turning the Capitol Police into her own force of political mercenaries.

“Instead of fixing the obvious problems with Capitol security, Pelosi used January 6 as an excuse to create her own personal Praetorian Guard,” the aide said.

Comments and recommendations for mandatory background checks on staff by Pelosi’s hand-picked Capitol security adviser, retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, have also done little to quell suspicions that Pelosi is using the January 6 proceedings to justify increased surveillance of her political enemies in Congress.

Hopefully, when we take back the Congress, we can get to the bottom of this. Maybe it might be a good idea to lock up those who planned and implemented this.

Democrat prosecutors exact light sentences for BLM protesters

In one case, Montez Lee pleads guilty to a single count of arson after burning a Black man to death and gets 10 years

The Washington Examiner informs us that Montel Lee was convicted on one count of arson despite having killed Oscar Stewart in the process of that crime.

A man who set a deadly fire in a Minneapolis pawn shop during the 2020 George Floyd riots was spared a murder charge and sentenced to just 10 years after federal prosecutors invoked Martin Luther King Jr. and asked the judge to show leniency.

Montez Terriel Lee, 26, pleaded guilty to a single count of arson and was sentenced earlier this month to 10 years in federal prison — much less than the 16 1/2 to 20-year punishment outlined in the sentencing guidelines.

Court documents show that Lee admitted he burned down the Max It Pawn Shop on May 28, 2020, the same night rioters set the Minneapolis Third Precinct building on fire following Floyd’s death at the hands of since-convicted police officer Derek Chauvin.

Two months after the fire, the charred remains of 30-year-old Oscar Lee Stewart were found in the rubble. Although Stewart’s death was attributed to the fire in the prosecutor’s sentencing memo, he was not charged with it.

Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani told the Washington Examiner that Lee could have been looking at a murder charge and a life sentence.

“It could have been tried as a capital case,” Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, said. “Even if conduct isn’t charged under the sentencing guidelines, any relevant conduct can be considered by the sentencing judge in fashioning an appropriate sentence. Any time there is a felony committed — and arson is a felony — and a death ensues, that’s homicide. … It doesn’t matter that just the arson was charged because someone died as a result. It’s a murder case.”

This, like the DOJ releasing illegal alien smugglers of 400 pounds of drugs, only encourages crime

Like the recent case where federal prosecutors did not bring charges against drug smugglers who they released, this only encourages crime.

In a second case, Abdi gets probation after trying to burn Minnesota school during BLM riots 

The New York Post discusses the case of Mohamed Hussein Abdi, who was given probation after trying to burn down a school during the George Floyd riots.

A man convicted of attempting to set fire to a high school during the Black Lives Matter riots in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd has been sentenced to five years probation.

Mohamed Hussein Abdi, 20, was handed the probation sentence in a U.S. District Court in St. Paul, Minnesota, Thursday after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit arson, according to court documents obtained by Fox News.

Abdi was also ordered to pay just over $34,000 in restitution to Gordon Parks High School in St. Paul.

Court documents state that the sentence was “imposed pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984.”

The presiding judge, Reagan-appointed District Court Judge David S. Doty, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

Abdi was arrested in June 2020, a month after he entered the high school through a broken glass door during the Floyd riot and could be seen on security footage pouring liquid from a white container onto the floor and then into a trashcan. Abdi then took a liquid-soaked garment and sent fire to the trash can before running away as flames and smoke began to spread.

The out-of-touch Biden regime exposes itself


Americans go scorched earth on Psaki for laughing at those concerned with the Democrats’ “soft-on-crime” policy

The Western Journal reports on a slip by Jen Psaki that exposed her to a bit of a number of Americans’ ire.

AlternativeUniverseJenWhite House press secretary Jen Psaki is taking heat for laughing at the idea of being concerned over “soft-on-crime” policies which have made their way into the justice system in several major left-wing cities and which have horrific real-world consequences for community members — and those who sign up to keep their communities safe.

Speaking to the left-wing podcast “Pod Save America” with fellow Obama administration alum Jon Favreau on Tuesday, Psaki discussed the differences between what various cable news networks were focusing on.

“Do you remember the four boxes that we had on all the TVs right?” she said, referring to TVs that play multiple news networks on split screens in D.C. government buildings, as The Daily Wire noted.

Explaining that she was looking at one herself at the moment, she shared what was currently playing on them to give Favreau and fellow podcast guests a “sense.”

“So CNN — ‘Pentagon: As many as 8,500 U.S. troops on heightened alert’ — OK, true … Same on MSNBC … CNBC is doing their own thing about the market,” she said, clearly pleased with what she felt was appropriate and serious news coverage.

“And then on Fox,” she continued (here we go), “Jeanine Pirro talking about ‘soft-on-crime consequences,’” she shared, laughing.

“I mean what does that even mean, right?” she added, not even trying to hide her mocking contempt.

“So there’s an alternate universe on some coverage,” she added. “What’s scary about it is a lot of people watch that.”

More thoughts for Jen







But, then again, there are a lot of things I could say to Jen.

 

Proofs that Joe Biden and the Democrats don’t care


Former FDA Head Gottlieb calls Biden’s omicron travel ban “counterproductive”

The Daily Wire quotes the FDA director of President Trump in his assessment of Joe Biden’s “Black Ban” against the omicron variant.

BidenBlackBanFormer Food and Drug Administration administrator Dr. Scott Gottlieb panned the Biden administration’s decision to impose a travel ban on eight countries in southern Africa amid concerns over a new variant of the COVID-19 virus, calling the move “counterproductive.”

“Of note: The 4 cases of new variant identified in Botswana were incidentally detected in well people tested before air travel, and South African Medical Association chief said – so far – symptoms seen are ‘mostly mild symptoms, and we haven’t seen a spike in hospital admissions,’” Gottlieb wrote in a Twitter thread about the new variant Friday.

His tweet was accompanied by screenshots of two news reports explaining that the novel variant allegedly originated in Botswana. The reports noted that there were currently only six cases in the country, and the new variant reportedly came from a person who was immunocompromised due to an HIV infection. The reports also said that there had been a spike in COVID cases, but not in hospitalizations.

“Good world is more organized; taking new variant seriously, with coordinated effort to investigate,” he continued. “It’s counterproductive in short and long run, however, to impose harsh travel restrictions on affected countries; hurting current containment efforts, discouraging future sharing.”

“There’s too much we don’t know to impose economically, socially ruinous policies on SA and other nations. Ready, fire, aim is not prudent public health policy. Vaccine, testing requirements for incoming travelers could be prudent. Outright travel bans can hurt more than help.”

The Biden administration imposed a travel ban on eight countries in southern Africa amid concerns of the new variant, dubbed “Omicron.” The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra reported:

The travel restrictions will go into effect on Monday, but they will not apply to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. The eight nations are South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi.

Biden said that the move came after he was briefed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the chief medical advisor to the president.

Fauci had suggested earlier in the day during an interview with CNN that more information was needed before making a decision on whether to ban travel because “you don’t want to say you’re going to do it until you have some scientific reason to do it.”

“That’s the reason why we’re rushing now to get that scientific data to try and make an informed decision about something like that,” Fauci added.

Early testing for the new variant showed that 90% of the cases that were reported on Wednesday came from the South African province that includes Johannesburg.

BioNTech, the company that partnered with American pharmaceutical giant Pfizer to manufacture the first COVID vaccine granted the Emergency Use Authorization, said in a statement that they are currently investigating whether the new variant “could be an escape variant that may require an adjustment of our vaccine if the variant spreads globally.”

While Joe Biden reviews his options, real America needs to work

While Dementia Joe considers whether he thinks he needs to shut us down again over a virus that, in its worse state, killed only a little over 1.3% of those under 75 who contracted it — those of us in the working world find ourselves pressured by his inflation. We either find ourselves dipping further into our pockets than planned or feel pushed into taking additional jobs to cover the shortfall.

Still, since the main stream press will not bring this up, I will. This would normally be called racist if it were any non-Democrat politician who banned travel from these countries.

The reason that smash-and-grab crime is on the rise in Democrat areas is that Democrat leaders sanction it

Fox News notes the words of former officer Pete Eliadis as he assesses the situation.

A rash of brazen organized nighttime shoplifting incidents in several U.S. cities during which thieves ransack stores and make off with merchandise is the culmination of a failure to prosecute criminals and the normalization of such behavior, according to experts. 

The most recent incident occurred Monday when a mob of at least 20 people smashed windows with a sledgehammer at a Nordstrom department store at The Grove, a popular shopping and entertainment complex in Los Angeles, and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise, police said. At least three suspects have been arrested. 

The thefts followed a series of smash-and-grab incidents in the San Francisco area over the weekend, including one where a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek was hit by at least 90 people, some wearing ski masks and armed with crowbars. Three people have been charged in that theft, during which two employees were assaulted and one was pepper-sprayed, authorities said.

A Louis Vitton in San Francisco‘s Union Square was nearly emptied Friday night as thieves were seen fleeing the high-end retailer with armfuls of expensive merchandise. Nine suspects have been charged in that smash-and-grab. Other stores targeted in the city on the same night included Bloomingdale’s, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, a Walgreens and cannabis dispensaries, authorities said. All told, at least 12 stores in the city were targeted over the weekend alone. 

Across the bay in Oakland, the Wellspring Pharmacy was looted Saturday when dozens of looters wearing black hoodies and masks ransacked shelves and fled with prescription drugs. 

In suburban Chicago, 14 suspects stole $100,000 of merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store last week as they grabbed everything they could carry. On Nov. 12, an Ulta Beauty store in nearby Oak Brook, Illinois, was ransacked to the tune of $15,000. 

Security experts cited a variety of reasons for the brazen nature of the crimes.

“Not only is it being tolerated because we’re seeing it more, but we’re seeing there’s no prosecution involved in this,” Pete Eliadis, a former law enforcement official and CEO of security company Intelligence Consulting Partners, told Fox News. “Law enforcement is not going to engage with that type of element because it’s an accepted crime.”

News to those Democrat-supporting thugs

Gun sales in large American cities has skyrocketed while support for gun control has dropped (especially among women). Therefore, if you break into a woman’s house, you are now more likely to be met with a trained gun owner who has practiced unloading through her gun’s muzzle.

Just a thought for the thugs out there.

Stephen Moore to Newsmax: Biden has “declared war on American energy”

Newsmax reports that Stephen Moore, the economic advisor under President Trump, has assessed that Biden has “declared war on American energy.”

President Joe Biden’s call to release 50 million barrels of crude oil from the nation’s strategic reserves may be, on balance, a good idea, but it doesn’t solve anything or change the fact that he’s “declared war on American energy,” Stephen Moore, a former senior economic adviser under President Donald Trump, said on Newsmax Wednesday. 

“He does not want to produce oil and gas and coal in this country,” Moore said on Newsmax’s “American Agenda.”

“That’s where we get 80% of our energy and so he is wrong when he says that his policies have not contributed to higher gas prices.”

Moore, who called Biden’s plan a “band-aid,” further pointed out that the United States’ oil production is down 2 million barrels a day from where it should be and from where it was at its peak when Trump was in office. 

“We killed the Keystone XL pipeline,” said Moore. “There are two major pipelines in the Midwest that are necessary to get home heating fuel into people’s homes. I’m really worried about this winter … I’m from Chicago. It gets to 10 degrees below zero at night. You know you need your home heating, and there are real questions about whether we’ll have a reliable supply for people to keep warm in the winter.”

Meanwhile, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm was not able this week to answer a reporter’s questions concerning how many barrels of oil the United States consumes daily, and Moore said that is a concern. 

“[She] knows about as much on energy as Pete Buttigieg knows about transportation,” said Moore. “Biden has a lot of incompetent people in positions of major influence on our economy, and I just mentioned two of them. Yes, she should know that number.”

The United States, he added, is now producing 11 million barrels of oil a day, when it should be at about 13 million barrels. 

“At the price of $80 a barrel, that’s about $160 million we’re losing every day in terms of U.S. economic output,” said Moore. “That’s $50 billion a year we’re losing, so these are policies that are hurting American families.”

But, he added that there are “climate change fanatics” in the administration who “want high oil and gas prices.”

What do we expect when Biden empties the nation of options for the oil/gas industry, but fills his regime with climate change “experts?”

What do you expect when Joe shut down the Keystone on his first day (and, yes, futures do play a role in oil prices)? What do you expect when Joe shuts off drilling in federal lands and waters? What do you expect when Joe won’t let drillers use rights-of-way across federal lands or waters? What do you think happens when Joe stops dredging rivers used as rights-of-way for large ships? What do you expect when Joe works to shut down drilling near a national park revered by a native tribe?

Representative Jim Jordan: Biden’s policies seem to be intentionally making things worse.

The Daily Caller outlines a recent Jim Jordan speech that torches Biden’s policies.

Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan ripped into President Joe Biden’s economic policies Friday morning, claiming they seem to be “intentionally making things worse.”

Jordan was asked by “Fox & Friends” substitute co-host Lawrence Jones whether he agreed with Biden’s recent comments during Thursday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in which he declared that “America is Back.”

“We are at a 31 year high in inflation. They can say what they want but the American people understand it for what it is. What was it like, four weeks ago, Joe Biden said now if we pass this ‘Build Back Better’ plan, another two trillion in spending, some how that’s gonna help inflation. There is not a rational sane person on the planet who believes that,” Jordan responded.

“So yeah, their policies have been bad across the board, and it seems to me it’s intentional because they just keep making things worse whether its inflation, you name it, that’s the situation. I think the American people fully understand it,” Jordan continued.

While unemployment claims have reached a record-lowinflation has skyrocketed to a 31-year high, and gas prices have reached their highest levels in a decade.

Psaki provides word salad in defense of Joe not visiting the families of the dead and injured in Wisconsin

When I hear her babbling, I think of a number of liberal attacks against conservatives

This rambling response to Peter Doocy’s question evokes a bit of anti-nostalgia in me where I ask:

  • “Our hearts go out,” you say. Every time that any Christian or conservative talks of “thoughts and prayers,” you Democrats do nothing but mock. Therefore, don’t augment your inaction by the further inaction of just saying “our hearts go out.”
  • You say “we are all watching.” However, what have you done to prove that? What substantive steps have you taken against the thug who killed 6? I remember that your Representative Nadler suggested bringing Kyle Rittenhouse up on federal charges after a jury found that he defended himself. Do any Democrat leaders have suggestions for this situation?
  • Does Joe Biden (#NotMyPresident) have an anti-White or anti-Wisconsin sentiment? When President Bush delayed visiting Louisiana by a day, he was roundly criticized by celebrities and the press. It has been over a week since the people of Waukesha were run down by someone intent on killing as many as possible. It seems like Biden could skip a nap and help the people.
  • You say “this time of year.” Are you seriously using a Christian holiday as an excuse for not giving comfort to fellow countrymen and women, you baby-killing group of pretenders?
  • You point out that the entourage of multiple carbon-belching SUV’s that Biden drags to his every visit would put a strain on the area. Does that mean that you will never visit an area that doesn’t meet certain qualities? Does that mean that you only travel of Buttigieg’s racist roads?

 

“I didn’t run because of polls:” Biden brushes off dire situations of Americans


Joe Antoinette: “Let them eat cake”

Joe Biden gives rare live TV interview to local Cincinnati station, expressing indifference toward the plight of Americans

The Daily Mail points to the hypocrisy of the Biden regime as they callously brush off the rise of gas prices and food.

President Joe Biden participated in a rare live television interview on Monday evening to Cincinnati station Local 12, as his White House contends with surging prices and plummeting approval numbers. 

He sat down with the local station just two days after his approval rating hit a new low of 38 percent in the latest USA Today/Suffolk University Poll. Nearly half of those surveyed said Biden failed to meet their expectations for him.

But he shrugged off voters’ displeasure when interviewer Kyle Inskeep asked Biden if those numbers meant needing to shift his focus.

‘Well look, the poll I saw just before I walked in on another station was my polling number is down, but it’s 48 percent to 52 percent,’ the president said.

‘But look, the point is I didn’t run because of the polls.’ 

He added that Americans were feeling more uncertain right now because of the ongoing pandemic and rising prices at the pump.

‘A lot of people are worried,’ Biden said. ‘Think about this. Look what 750,000 people have died because of COVID. The psychological scars that has put on so many people. Schools have not been opened because of COVID.’

DementiaJoe'sJobApproval

He said ‘we’re in a situation when there’s a lot, a lot of anxiety.’

‘Gas prices are up, exceedingly high,’ Biden continued. ‘That’s why I have the attorney general taking a look at whether or not these gas companies are gouging people.’

He also claimed his poll numbers were comparable to his predecessors during their time in the White House.

During the seven-minute chat, Biden also talked about the passage of his $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal. 

The president was admittedly late for the interview, which Biden chuckled about when Inskeep excused him as a ‘very busy man.’

‘I’m sorry to keep you waiting, I really am,’ Biden said while folding a black mask and setting it down.

Joe’s handlers have part of this right: much of our issues are based on the economy and his vaccine mandate

We are mad about the economy and the vaccine mandate. However, it is much more than that. And it doesn’t center on Dementia Joe’s low approval rating. I could care less about what other people think of a president; however,

I do care about how much the president cares about America. And with this resident of the Oval Office, the care ain’t there.

The main thing over the past eight-plus months of his tenure have been his non-stop harping on COVID (ending with this nonsensical mandate). I say that, if he is going to live by the COVID sword all this time, let him die on the COVID sword.

Still, Joe pushes ahead with his vaccine mandate by making his DOJ run interference for OSHA

Biden’s DOJ asks court to lift order blocking vaccine rules

The Hill details how Joe Biden’s DOJ has started pushing to have the order blocking vaccine rules lifted.

The Biden administration in a filing late Monday said it has the legal authority to mandate COVID-19 vaccines or tests for larger companies, and that the GOP-led states and businesses challenging the law have not shown their claims will outweigh the harms of stopping the rule.

In a filing to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which temporarily blocked the mandate with a nationwide stay last week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said the rule is firmly grounded in law and necessary to keep people safe.

Stopping the mandate from taking effect “would likely cost dozens or even hundreds of lives per day,” the DOJ wrote. “Petitioners’ asserted injuries, by contrast, are speculative and remote and do not outweigh the interest in protecting employees from a dangerous virus while this case proceeds.”

DOJ was responding to the court’s ruling on Saturday, when a panel of three judges issued a stay of the rule, citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues.” All three judges on the panel were appointed by Republican presidents.  

The rule was issued last week by the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under its emergency authority. The rule would force companies with at least 100 employees to require unvaccinated employees to wear masks indoors starting Dec. 5 and then undergo weekly testing if they remain unvaccinated by Jan. 4.

Federal law gives OSHA the authority to issue an emergency temporary standard if it determines workers are exposed to a “grave danger” that necessitates a rule. However, the states and private companies argue that COVID-19 is not a “grave danger” specific to the workplace, saying the rule is an unlawful overreach of federal power.  

The DOJ also argues there is no need to address the challenges immediately, because there is a congressionally mandated process for judicial review of OSHA standards. Since the challenges were filed in separate courts, there is going to be a lottery on Nov. 16 to determine which court will hear the lawsuit.

The Biden regime has proven itself the most dismissive regime of Supreme Court rulings

The Supreme Court told Biden that his eviction moratorium was unconstitutional. What did Biden do? He had his CDC issue an extension of that unconstitutional act.

Now, the Biden regime has had its hands slapped by the Fifth Circuit Court. What does Biden do? He pushes ahead by both arguing in court against it and getting his DOJ to do his dirty work. Additionally, he has instructed companies to ignore the Fifth Circuit Court.

Biden truly is a dictator.

Biden does not care about your legal rights

The tyrannical treatment of 6 January prisoners is a threat to our democracy

The Epoch Times outlines the ways that the despotic denials of freedom for those imprisoned for protesting on 6 January have acted against the freedoms of all Americans.

Republican Rep. Gohmert Discusses Issues Related To Jan. 6th Assault On CapitolSince the founding of this great nation, a God-blessed America has offered the hope of liberty to the world. In more recent years, we have come to realize that should our experiment in self-governance fail, there would be no other nation on Earth that could fill the void left in its wake as the defender of such freedom.

Never before had any nation been founded to safeguard the rights of the individual, which changed the course of human history from brute force dictating propriety to recognition that every individual has value. Our Declaration of Independence enshrined the truth that individual rights come from the hand of our Creator, acknowledging them to be established by the Almighty and therefore not defined by the brute force realm of human power.

It took a Civil War and civil rights movement for America to grow into the profound commitments of its Declaration of Independence and Constitution. The Declaration has stood the test of time to ensure liberty for all in our nation and as the beacon of hope for the rest of the world. Our nation has continued to move to right the wrongs of fallible human beings and build upon the past.

We were getting exceedingly close.

Under Biden’s rule, for the first time in our history, normalizing the denial of civil rights and civil liberties based on ideology, not wrongdoing, is presented as a noble cause. Equal justice under the law for the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ) has taken a giant leap backward in embracing the medieval notion of might makes right in glorifying the denial of civil rights for political opponents. It is shameful and dangerous.

For months, elected officials representing the citizens of this country have been seeking truthful, non-politicized answers from the government about the events that unfolded on Jan. 6. We have been continually stonewalled, belittled, ignored, and even demonized by the DOJ, leadership at the Capitol Police, and the Bureau of Prisons. They each ignore requests and questions, refusing to allow oversight of their actions that gives every appearance of a cover-up of wrongdoing.

Think of the legal doctrine of spoliation. In court, if one party holds evidence and destroys it or refuses to produce it, the judge may instruct the jury to infer that the evidence is completely against the party hiding it. This is exactly what they are doing.

Should ideology and abuse of power continue to drive this administration’s actions, the Rule of Law will cease to exist. The only safeguard against these obvious improprieties is transparency. Until recent times, our country protected our individual freedoms by dragging every ugly wart out into the light of day to examine the actions of our government. We gave deference to individual rights. By its actions, the Biden administration is shredding the foundations of our legal system and the rights of the people’s representatives to protect them from government abuse.

From the attacks on the Project Veritas reporters to the Obama-era wiretapping of reporters to , today’s Democrats have a penchant for suppressing

Whether they are suppressing the press (as with Obama’s treatment of the press or Biden’s attacks on his advisaries), recent Democrats have worked to suppress their political enemies in the press. Likewise, they have used similar tactics against their civilian and political enemies (as with the 6 January protesters and any true conservative).

Biden attacks the press again

FBI Raids James O’Keefe’s house over Ashley Biden diary

Breitbart reports on the attacks on the First Amendment that took the form of FBI raids on Project Veritas members.

James-OKeefeThe FBI raided James O’Keefe’s home in New York on Saturday, apparently looking for clues in the alleged theft of a diary belonging to Ashley Biden, the daughter of President Joe Biden.

The New York Times reported on the raid, in a piece co-written by several Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, including one, Michael S. Schmidt, who boasts that he won the award for coverage of President Trump and his campaign’s ties to Russia, though that story has since completely fallen apart.

Several pages purporting to be from the diary were published during the election, but were largely ignored, amid doubts about their authenticity.

The Times noted:

Federal authorities on Saturday searched the home of James O’Keefe, the founder of the conservative group Project Veritas, according to witnesses and people briefed on the matter, a day after Mr. O’Keefe acknowledged that the group was under investigation by the Justice Department in connection with a diary reported to have been stolen from Ashley Biden, President Biden’s daughter.

(continued)

Mr. O’Keefe did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Saturday. But in a video statement on Friday, he said that his group had recently received a grand jury subpoena and acknowledged that Project Veritas had been involved in discussions with sources last year about the diary.

O’Keefe said that his Project Veritas decided not to run stories about the diary, and had returned it to law enforcement:

George Washington University Jonathan Turley wrote that the O’Keefe raid was odd, as a stolen diary did not seem to implicate any kind federal crime, and suggested the possibility that Biden’s Department of Justice might have been targeting a journalist seen as a political opponent.

(Read about the weaponization of the FBI at Breitbart)

Odd thing about these attacks on Project Veritas reporters and its founder is that Joe Biden promised not to attack the press again

The Associated Press once reported on Joe Biden’s promise not to attack the press as he had during years previous.

President Joe Biden says he won’t allow the Department of Justice to seize journalists’ phone records and emails, calling the practice “wrong” in a significant departure from his predecessors.

“Absolutely, positively, it’s wrong. It’s simply, simply wrong,” he told a reporter Friday at the White House.

His comments come as CNN reported Thursday that the Trump administration Justice Department secretly obtained the 2017 phone records of one of their correspondents, the latest revelation of an apparent leak investigation aimed at identifying a journalist’s sources that was launched during the last administration.

(Read more blatant lies at the Associated Press)

The problem with Biden’s promise in February not to attack the press was that he broke that promise in June and at least twice again with his FBI raids on Project Veritas during the past few weeks.

When even the Washington Post calls out Democrats, those Democrats have progressed far into dictatorship

As put in a 6 June 2021 Washington Post op-ed covering Biden’s second infraction against the press, the Biden regime is “simply, simply wrong” in the way it treats what it sees as an adversary press. With Biden’s now throwing the FBI onto the investigative reporters of Project Veritas, the Biden regime has gone from suppressive to dictatorial.

During the final days of the Trump administration, the attorney general used extraordinary measures to obtain subpoenas to secretly seize records of reporters at three leading U.S. news organizations. After this was reported last month, President Biden rightly decried this attack on the First Amendment, calling it “simply, simply wrong” and assuring Americans that it would not happen in his administration.

Unfortunately, new revelations suggest that the Biden Justice Department not only allowed these disturbing intrusions to continue — it intensified the government‘s attack on First Amendment rights before finally backing down in the face of reporting about its conduct.

After Biden took office, the department continued to pursue subpoenas for reporters’ email logs issued to Google, which operates the New York Times’ email systems, and it obtained a gag order compelling a Times attorney to keep silent about the fact that federal authorities were seeking to seize his colleagues’ records. Later, when the Justice Department broadened the number of those permitted to know about the effort, it barred Times executives from discussing the legal battle with the Times newsroom, including the paper’s top editor.

This escalation, on Biden’s watch, represents an unprecedented assault on American news organizations and their efforts to inform the public about government wrongdoing.

Last month, The Post learned of secret subpoenas authorized by President Donald Trump’s outgoing attorney general to obtain email information and home, cell and office telephone records of three Post reporters over a 3½-month span in 2017. We immediately requested an explanation and answers to several questions from the Justice Department as well as a meeting with the attorney general.

To date, no answers have been provided and the meeting has yet to take place. This delay is troubling. When asked about how the president’s assurances can be squared with his Justice Department’s behavior, White House press secretary Jen Psaki could offer no explanation. She subsequently released a statement disavowing White House knowledge of the actions that appear to have continued for several months during Biden’s presidency.

Throughout U.S. history, there have been inevitable differences between news organizations seeking to shed light on government activity and government officials seeking to preserve secrecy. As a society, we have become accustomed to these tensions. For the most part, they have been constructive and good for the health of our democracy. However, the egregious acts by the outgoing Trump Justice Department, and the apparent doubling down on them during the Biden administration, should alarm all Americans, regardless of political persuasion.

The First Amendment is not a special privilege of the press but, rather, a fundamental right protecting all Americans. It empowers citizens to hold their elected officials to account by ensuring that wrongdoing, even at the highest levels, will be brought to light. Much of this reporting would be impossible without courageous government employees who, after learning about serious misdeeds, improper programs conducted under the cloak of secrecy, or other actions contrary to America’s fundamental principles and national interests, take the risk of speaking to reporters in confidence to bring such conduct to the attention of their fellow citizens.

Biden does not care about Americans abroad

Dozens of Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan

The Daily Mail calls out the Biden regime on the Americans still stranded in Afghanistan.

Dozens of family members of American soldiers remain trapped in Afghanistan and at the mercy of the Taliban more than two months after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the country.

Those stranded include children, siblings and parents of US service members, as well as more than 100 extended family members. 

The Pentagon does not have a ‘good accounting’ of how many family members of DOD civilians remain trapped in Afghanistan since the last US flight left Kabul airport at the end of August, NBC News reported 

‘The federal government has turned their backs on them. If we abandon the family members of our service men and women in Afghanistan, they will certainly be slaughtered by the Taliban,’ Texas Rep. Michael McCaul said.

Congress members have been pressuring the Pentagon to help those stranded since the withdrawal fiasco, which included the deaths of 13 troops in a terror attack at Kabul airport.

In September, McCaul sent a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken asking them to assist in the escape efforts.

‘Over the past month, I have been contacted by hundreds of Texans who are desperately trying to get friends and family members safe out of the country,’ he wrote. ‘That includes the family members of several Texans who currently serve in the military.’

Pentagon officials have claimed that many of services members whose family remain trapped were Afghan born.

In an effort to launch a rescue mission, the Pentagon has created a database of those who can’t get out of the Taliban-controlled country.

Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, in a memo Thursday, asked any military personnel and defense department civilians with immediate family members stuck in Afghanistan to contact the government and have their loved ones added to the database.

‘Any US military personnel or DoD civilian employees with immediate family members still in Afghanistan who desire assistance departing should contact the OUSD(P) Afghan Referrals mailbox,’ he wrote.
