News that shows the Biden regime cannot quit from fail mode

The Biden regime launches an “Environmental Justice” office

The Washington Free Beacon reveals the Biden regime’s launch of its “Environmental Justice” office.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Saturday launched a new office that will be focused on the needs of minority communities overburdened by pollution and oversee the delivery of $3 billion in environmental justice grants created by the recent passage of new climate legislation.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan announced the creation of the Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights, which will be staffed by 200 EPA employees and led by a not-yet-announced Senate-confirmed assistant administrator.

He launched the new office at an event in Warren County, North Carolina, which was the site of protests 40 years ago that is regarded as the birthplace of the environmental justice movement.

“With the launch of a new national program office, we are embedding environmental justice and civil rights into the DNA of EPA and ensuring that people who’ve struggled to have their concerns addressed see action to solve the problems they’ve been facing for generations,” Regan said in a statement.

It was the latest move by the Biden administration to prioritize environmental justice in its policymaking. The Justice Department in May announced the launch of a new office to help low-income areas and communities of color battle the disproportionate impact of air and water pollution.

President Joe Biden has often cited protecting poor and minority communities from industrial pollution as a top priority and has pledged that 40% of federal clean energy investments will be channeled to the cause.

If Joe cannot get his eyes onto the real target (the economy), he always has the press to cover for him

It seems that, if bumbling Joe cannot do anything to improve the economy (or at least take steps toward doing that), he only has the main stream press to cover for him. Hopefully the alternative press will be able to pull back the curtain (as it has with these articles and the ones that find their ways into conservative blogs like Bunkerville, Not of this World, and others).

News that obviously untrustworthy due to the history of lies within Facebook

Meta says it disables the Russian and Chinese propaganda permeating Facebook

The Los Angeles Times blindly parrots the claims by Meta (formerly Facebook) as it claims to clean up its act prior to the 2022 mid-term elections.

A sprawling disinformation network originating in Russia sought to use hundreds of fake social media accounts and dozens of sham news websites to spread the Kremlin’s talking points about the invasion of Ukraine, Facebook parent company Meta said Tuesday.

The company, which also owns Instagram, said it identified and disabled the operation before it was able to gain a large audience. Nonetheless, Facebook said it was the largest and most complex Russian propaganda effort that it has found since the invasion began in February.

The operation involved more than 60 websites created to mimic legitimate news sites including the Guardian newspaper in Britain and Germany’s Der Spiegel. Instead of the actual news reported by those outlets, the fake sites contained links to Russian propaganda and disinformation about Ukraine. More than 1,600 fake Facebook accounts were used to spread the propaganda to audiences in Germany, Italy, France, Britain and Ukraine.

The findings highlighted both the promise of social media companies to police their sites and the peril that disinformation continues to pose.

“Video: False Staging in Bucha Revealed!” claimed one of the fake news stories, which blamed Ukraine for the slaughter of hundreds of Ukrainians in a town occupied by the Russians.

The fake social media accounts were then used to spread links to the fake news stories and other pro-Russian posts and videos on Facebook and Instagram, as well as platforms including Telegram and Twitter. The network was active throughout the summer.

“On a few occasions, the operation’s content was amplified by the official Facebook pages of Russian embassies in Europe and Asia,” said David Agranovich, Meta’s director of threat disruption. “I think this is probably the largest and most complex Russian-origin operation that we’ve disrupted since the beginning of the war in Ukraine earlier this year.”

The network’s activities were first noticed by investigative reporters in Germany. When Meta began its investigation, it found that many of the fake accounts had already been removed by Facebook’s automated systems. Thousands of people were following the network’s Facebook pages when they were deactivated earlier this year.

Researchers at Meta Platforms, which is based in Menlo Park, also exposed a much smaller network that originated in China and attempted to spread divisive political content in the U.S.

Of course, this may be a shell game

News that reveals the deception inherent to Facebook

Facebook spied on private messages of Americans who questioned the 2020 election

The New York Post tells how Facebook dug into private messages that centered on rejection of the 2020 election.

Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.

Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.

“It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause,” alleged one of the sources, who spoke on condition of ­anonymity.

“Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena.”

These private messages then have been farmed out as “leads” to FBI field offices around the country, which subsequently requested subpoenas from the partner US Attorney’s Office in their district to officially obtain the private conversations that Facebook already had shown them.

But when the targeted Facebook users were investigated by agents in a local FBI field office, sometimes using covert surveillance techniques, nothing criminal or violent turned up.

New lawsuit challenges the legality of Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan

Reason.com reports on a lawsuit filed against the Biden student loan forgiveness plan.

President Joe Biden’s plan to forgive hundreds of billions of dollars in student loan debt violates both federal law and the Constitution, according to a just-filed lawsuit from the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF), a libertarian law firm.

“This isn’t how laws are supposed to be made,” Caleb Kruckenberg, an attorney for PLF, tells Reason. “Only Congress has the power to pass laws and spend money under the Constitution. The administration’s actions here are flagrantly illegal.”

This is the first serious challenge to Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, which he announced last month. The lawsuit’s plaintiff is Frank Garrison, who’s also an attorney at PLF. Garrison borrowed federal student loans to pay for law school, but according to him, Biden’s debt forgiveness plan will actually subject him to a financial penalty in the form of a state tax. This gives him standing to sue the U.S. Education Department, his lawsuit argues.

“Despite the staggering scope of this regulatory action, it was taken with breathtaking informality and opacity,” the lawsuit claims. “In the rush, the administration has created new problems for borrowers in at least six states that tax loan cancellation as income.”

News that shows the naked partisanship within Biden

Biden calls Florida mayors but not DeSantis as Hurricane Ian nears

The New York Post points out how Biden called Democrat mayors in Florida but refused to call (my original wording due to the original story early in the evening of 27 September) held off a call to Governor DeSantis as Hurricane Ian approaches.

President Biden called three Florida mayors Tuesday as Hurricane Ian nears Florida’s western coast — hours before reaching out to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, with whom he has clashed on issues such as COVID-19 policies and migration.

As the devastating Category 3 storm approached, Biden first spoke with Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch and Clearwater Mayor Frank Hibbard. Castor and Welch are Democrats, while Hibbard is a Republican.

The president waited until Tuesday night to phone DeSantis.

The two discussed “the steps the Federal government is taking to help Florida prepare for Hurricane Ian,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “The President and the Governor committed to continued close coordination.”

DeSantis is a potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate and has frequently criticized Biden’s performance.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at her regular press briefing that Biden “held separate calls” with the mayors and “discussed planning and preparation for Hurricane Ian.”

Biden “underscored his commitment to the people of Florida and made clear that impacted communities will have the full support of the federal government to augment state and local emergency response efforts,” Jean-Pierre added.

Deanne Criswell, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, joined Biden for his calls with the mayors and Criswell said Biden delegated to her the responsibility of liaising with DeSantis on Friday.

“The president directed me to contact the governor early on before we even did the declaration. I did that,” she said. “My regional administrator is with the governor right now making sure that we’re understanding what the needs are and our focus is on the current life safety needs.”

News that shows the dictatorial tendencies of Joe Biden when he uses executive orders more than Trump

Biden-era Democrats learn to love emergency powers after hating them under Trump

The Washington Examiner lays out a case for the over-use of executive orders by Joe Biden.

A sizable group of Democratic politicians have pressured President Joe Biden to declare national emergencies on the climate and abortion rights in recent weeks, but nearly 80 of those lawmakers attacked his predecessor’s use of emergency powers.

Former President Donald Trump declared a national emergency at the southern border in February 2019 as a means of bypassing Congress and securing funding for the completion of his campaign-promised border wall. The move was heartily opposed by Democrats at the time as an abuse of executive power.

“The President’s unlawful declaration over a crisis that does not exist does great violence to our Constitution and makes America less safe, stealing from urgently needed defense funds for the security of our military and our nation,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a joint statement at the time. “This is plainly a power grab by a disappointed President, who has gone outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process.”

Even Trump’s final White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows , then a North Carolina Republican congressman and the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus , suggested Trump’s border emergency was a “slippery slope” and predicted “the potential for national emergencies being used for every single thing that we face in the future where we can’t reach an agreement.”

The House passed a bill in late February 2019 seeking to block Trump’s declaration, as outlined in the National Emergencies Act of 1976, but the measure eventually died in the Senate. Biden ended the border emergency in February 2021, shortly after entering office. A year and a half later, he is facing pressure from Democrats to invoke similar emergency powers on abortion and climate.

Eighty-three members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus sent a letter to the president and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on July 12, urging him to declare an emergency in response to “the Supreme Court’s radical and dangerous decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Sixty-eight of the letter’s signatories voted to overturn Trump’s border emergency back in 2019, and only two of the lawmakers who did not vote yes were sitting members of Congress at the time. Reps. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and Steve Cohen (D-TN) both abstained from voting.

The White House is weighing declaring a public health emergency to shield doctors, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers who offer access to abortion pills in states with stringent abortion bans, but officials are reportedly concerned about the prospects that Republicans would attempt to file lawsuits over any such declared emergencies. Biden himself said he was open to reevaluating the idea during a meeting with state governors who took action to protect abortion access following the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling.

Similarly, Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Ed Markey (D-MA), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) all called on Biden to declare climate change a national emergency this past week.

Odd how things change

Trump used the executive order to advance the wall and secure the border. Although the press loves to overlook the murders perpetrated by illegals and the damage done by border crossers (like the 2,200 deaths, 118,000 rapes, and 138,000 assaults recorded).

Now Biden wants to allow abortion (a.k.a. baby murder) up until birth in all 50 states under his (devoutly Catholic) watch.

Biden’s social media defunds another company

Why has PayPal cancelled the Free Speech Union?

Britain’s Spectator allows an op-ed commentary on PayPal’s cancelation of the account of the Free Speech Union.

I thought one of the benefits of being cancelled – I lost five positions in quick succession at the beginning of 2018 – is that it immunises you from being cancelled again. After all, what more dirt could be thrown at me? The offence archaeologists did such a thorough job four years ago, sifting through everything I’d said or written dating back to 1987, that there was nothing left to dig up. But it turns out that was naive. Last week I got cancelled again.

The instrument of my downfall was PayPal, the technology company that supports online money transfers and operates as a payment processor for online businesses, auction sites and so on. At around 2 p.m. last Thursday I received an email from PayPal informing me that the company was ‘initiating closure’ of my personal account because I was ‘in violation’ of its ‘Acceptable Use Policy’. I looked up that policy and it covers a multitude of sins, but no clue was offered as to which one I’d committed. ‘If you have money in your PayPal balance, we’ll hold it for up to 180 days,’ it said. That was a bit annoying because I have over £600 in the account, but it wasn’t the end of the world. I mainly use it for receiving payments from European magazines I write for occasionally.

Then it got serious. Within a few minutes of contacting me, PayPal sent the same message to the Daily Sceptic, the news publishing website I’ve been running for two-and-a-half years, and the Free Speech Union, the organisation I set up in 2020 to defend people threatened with cancellation. In both cases, PayPal was shutting down the accounts for the same reason – breaching the Acceptable Use Policy. No further details. To give you a sense of how serious this is, about a quarter of the Daily Sceptic’s donor revenue is processed by PayPal and about a third of the Free Speech Union’s 9,500 members pay their dues via PayPal.

‘So what?’ you might think. Just email all those people and advise them to use a different payment processor. I’ll do that, obviously, but it’s inevitable that some won’t bother – some of them won’t even open the emails – and the resulting loss of revenue will be hugely disruptive. The Daily Sceptic has four people on the payroll and the Free Speech Union has 15 and they both operate on tight margins. I was relying on PayPal to deliver the service it promised to perform when I first signed up and which I’ve been paying for until now (1.5 per cent commission on every transaction). I had no idea it could just whisk the rug out from under you, with no notice and without having to provide any proper explanation. In my case, the excuse offered was obviously bogus. How could all three accounts be guilty of ‘violating’ the same policy within minutes of each other?

Biden’s election handlers seem to be up to their old tricks

Democrats “charity” voter-registration scheme

The Wall Street Journal shares an Op-Ed that points toward a nefarious bent within Democrat circles.

Senate Democrats plan to pass the Disclose Act, a bill they claim would force “dark money” groups into the light. Never mind the darkness that envelops their own epic voter-registration scam.

A New York Times article this week confirmed a political reality that Republicans have been slow to publicize: Democrats are openly abusing charities to stack voter rolls in their favor. The Times story was ostensibly about “voter registration” groups worried that donors weren’t giving enough to “democracy-related” programs this midterm cycle. Read closely and you notice the story is entirely about Democrats, confirming a longstanding scheme by which foundations and private donors funnel tax-exempt dollars into “charities” that microtarget and register Democratic voters.

Biden’s FBI goes full Gestapo against pro-life speaker

FBI raids home of Catholic pro-life speaker and author with guns drawn as his terrified kids watch

Lifesitenews reports that a Catholic speaker was raided by the FBI with guns drawn in front of the speaker’s children.

A well-known pro-life author, sidewalk counselor, and father of seven was the latest victim of a U.S. Department of Justice-sponsored SWAT raid and arrest — for supposed “FACE Act” violations — at his rural home as his children looked on “screaming.”

Mark Houck is the founder and president of The King’s Men, which promotes healing for victims of pornography addiction and promotes Christian virtues among men in the United States and Europe.

According to his wife Ryan-Marie, who spoke with LifeSiteNews, he also drives two hours south to Philadelphia every Wednesday to sidewalk counsel for six to eight hours at two different abortion centers.

Ryan-Marie, who is a homeschooling mother, described how the SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents swarmed their property with around 15 vehicles at 7:05 a.m. this morning. Having quickly surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, “they started pounding on the door and yelling for us to open it.”

Before opening the door, she explained, her husband tried to calm them, saying, “‘Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house.’ But they just kept pounding and screaming,” she said.

When he opened the door, “they had big, huge rifles pointed at Mark and pointed at me and kind of pointed throughout the house,” Ryan-Marie described.

When they came in, they ordered the kids to stay upstairs. “Our staircase is open, so [the kids] were all at the top of the stairs which faces the front door, and I was on the stairs as well, coming down.”

“The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic,” she explained.

After asking them why they were at the house, the agents said they were there to arrest Mark. When Ryan-Marie asked for their warrant, “they said that they were going to take him whether they had a warrant or not.”

An admission by a member of the press on media bias

A liberal reporter claims Republicans shouldn’t have a say on any issue

Townhall comments on the words of a CNN news reader who said the quiet part of silencing Republicans out loud.

Poynter senior media writer Tom Jones is fretting over CNN’s makeover of distancing itself from being an extreme left-leading outlet. 

Titled “CNN ‘hewing toward the center’ is not necessarily good for our democracy,” Jones fret that the network’s attempt of being less polarizing could be dangerous to the country. 

Jones also claimed that “the other side shouldn’t be given a voice” on certain topics, especially when it comes to former President Trump.

His piece bashed a recent story in the Chicago Tribune which touched on CNN’s move to becoming less polarizing amid its new CEO Chris Licht stepping in. 

The Chicago paper boldly stated that most issues have two sides, however when it comes “to the antics of former President Donald Trump,” the Right shouldn’t be allowed to report on it. 

“Here’s the problem: All Americans aren’t reasonable enough or willing to accept what’s true… and it isn’t just a small minority of those who aren’t willing to accept things such as the 2020 presidential election, the authenticity of our elections and other bedrocks of our democracy. For the editorial board to wrap up the issue by briefly mentioning the ‘antics of former President Donald Trump’ seems overly dismissive and not nearly as comprehensive of what’s truly at stake here,” Jones said. 

“Perhaps it’s Pollyannaish to hope that CNN can retrofit itself in a country where each political side believes the other is living in a kind of dangerous alternate reality,” according to the Tribune.

Democrat media outlets now deny previous “fact checks”

The Washington Post botches a fact-check to cover for Democrats’ abortion extremism

The Washington Examiner exposes the poor job done in “fact checking” done by liberal outlets like the Washington Post who now have lowered their standards to the level where they deny having previously “fact checked” for Democrats.

So often, the “fact-checking” industry in the establishment media serves as an organ of the Democratic Party.

Even then, the Washington Post may have made it a bit too obvious.

Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post decided to fact-check claims by Republicans that Democrats support abortion “until the moment of birth,” citing comments from both Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters, who used that phrase. It’s not a particularly difficult fact to check, given that Democrats do support keeping abortion legal at any point in pregnancy and frequently decline or refuse to name a single abortion restriction they would ever support.

But Kessler decided instead to fact-check a claim that was never made.

Kessler says that the “GOP attacks are disingenuous at best” because “they imply that late-term abortions are common.” He then proceeds to “fact check” how many late-term abortions are performed in the United States. In his verdict, Kessler concludes, “The campaign rhetoric suggests such late-term abortions happen frequently. The truth is that they do not.”

But again, this is the claim he was supposedly “fact-checking.” Kessler fabricated a strawman claim to give him an article that is more favorable to Democrats. He knows that Democrats oppose all abortion restrictions — everyone knows it because they keep saying so — and their stance is out-of-touch with most people’s views on the issue. So he decided to make the issue about the frequency of late-term abortions, which he concludes is at least 10,000 per year.

Speaking of which, that 10,000-a-year number also gives the lie to the claim that late-term abortion is “extremely rare.” It is much more common, for example, than deaths from AR-15s or other so-called “assault weapons.” All rifles combined, AR-15s included, accounted for only 364 gun homicides in 2019. (There were 10,258 total gun homicides in 2019, which is almost as many late-term abortions as Kessler decided are “extremely rare.”)

According to the Washington Post’s own police shooting database, there have been 7,768 people shot and killed by police since 2015. That hasn’t stopped the Democrats and their allies in the media from claiming that it is an epidemic. The Black Lives Matter movement is given national reverence by liberals, including Kessler’s paper, even though only 1,689 of those victims were black and, of that group, only 144 in the last eight years were unarmed. So police misconduct and shootings with so-called “assault weapons” are both considerably rarer than late-term abortions, which Kessler declared “extremely rare” at 10,000 per year.

Would Kessler ever claim that Democrats are out of line on gun control or police shootings? Of course, he wouldn’t. Today’s Democratic Party is essentially a political arm of the legacy media corporations.

(Read at Washington Examiner how this type of bias would not be tolerated against the left)

If the main stream press does not want to be seen as just an arm of the Democrat party, why do this?

Why make abortion the focus when the real story is a failing president? Then why pull the focus from abortion when Democrats’ radical stance becomes so evident?

More news that the main stream media doesn’t tell: promotion of LGBTQ+ agenda items

Hilliard City School District promotes an “LGBTQ+ resource guide” with instructions on sex work and abortions

The Washington Free Beacon provides a case where liberals provided minors with information on getting abortions and working in the sex industry (sounds like multiple counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor to me).

Teachers in an Ohio school district are wearing name badges that students can scan with their phones to access an “LGBTQ+ resource guide,” which includes instructions on how to get abortions and “organize like a sex worker.”

Hilliard City School District participates in the National Education Association’s “I’m Here” program, which encourages teachers to wear the badge. The group says the program is supposed to educate teachers on how to respond to LGBT students. But a Washington Free Beacon review found that the QR code takes students to resources that describe abortion as the removal of “pregnancy tissue,” encourage gender transitioning without parental consent, and promote sex work.

Public schools around the country are coming under fire for teaching age-inappropriate lessons to students. Parents in Idaho, for example, caught the state government this month offering “porn literacy” to students. A parent sued a Maine school district for offering books with “sexually graphic material, including descriptions of queer sex,” the Free Beacon reported in July.

The teachers’ badges have sparked outrage among parents in Hilliard City, ABC 6 reported earlier this month.

“The badge has a QR code that once scanned takes you to a website that has extremely inappropriate information, and as a parent that crosses the line,” Hilliard City parent Lisa Chaffee said.

Hilliard City superintendent Dave Stewart said the badges only concern “adult learning,” though the website from the QR code provides resources aimed at K-12 students. After backlash from parents, the district advised teachers to cover the QR code on the back of the badge, according to a statement from Stewart.

One link from the online guide encourages children to seek LGBT resources without their parents’ approval.

(Read at the Washington Free Beacon about the links concerning protections in Texas for LGBT issues)

So, what holds a more important place in your heart than children? With that answered, why doesn’t the press report on this?

If the press really wants to grab our attention, why not show how the LGBTQ+ community has targeted our children through liberal teachers?

Few media outlets report on an attack against Republican volunteers

Two Republicans are attacked as they volunteer for Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Mediaite tells us how two volunteers for Texas Governor Greg Abbott were attacked in Humble (north of Houston).

Two volunteers for Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s re-election campaign were attacked by a man near Houston, local officials told Fox News.

While door-knocking in Humble, Texas, the two volunteers were chased and attacked by a man who ripped the side view mirrors off their car, Abbott’s campaign said in a statement. He was reportedly arrested and charged with criminal mischief.

According to the campaign:

Yesterday, two Texans for Greg Abbott volunteers were assaulted by a man in the Humble while they were knocking on doors. The man chased the volunteers through a neighborhood, tried to drag them out of their car, and punched both side view mirrors off of the vehicle. The volunteers called police, who responded to the scene. After identifying the suspect, and finding pieces of the vehicle in his trash can, Harris County authorities took the suspect into custody and charged him with criminal mischief.

“Political violence is never acceptable,” Mark Miner, the communications director for Abbott’s campaign, said in a statement. “With just over a month until Election Day, the passion to win should never bubble over into something more dangerous. There is no place for this in Texas.”

Although the left always whines the most about our being able to protect ourselves, it has been the violent left that has hurt and killed

It has been the Left’s “bail reform” that has let felons onto the streets.

It was a loony Bernie supporter that shot Steve Scalise. It was a Democrat who ran over and killed a Republican teen.

However, we don’t know this (since this is not the focus of the media).

A media giant hides the story of a Republican teen being killed by a Democrat who held political grudges

CBS hides the alleged political motive behind a hit-and-run of Republican

Breitbart lays out the facts when CBS tries to obscure those inconvenient facts.

CBS News, a far-left propaganda outlet that spreads lies and conspiracy theories, is deliberately deceiving its readers about the reported motive behind the hit-and-run murder of an 18-year-old North Dakota man.

In the immediate wake of His Fraudulency Joe Biden declaring 65 million Trump supporters threats to America, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt deliberately ran down teenager Cayler Ellingson over a “political argument,” according to police reports. Police add that on the 911 call, Brandt accused the teenager of being “part of a Republican extremist group and [Brandt claimed] that he was afraid they were ‘coming to get him.’”

According to Ellingson’s mother, her son called her that night and asked if she knew who Brandt was. She did. Ellingson’s mother says her son called back later and said “he” or “they” were chasing him. After that, she wasn’t able to reach her son.

What makes this story a story is the alleged political motive, is the police reporting that this young man was run down for no other sin than being a Republican.

Because CBS finds that information inconvenient to the false narrative that only Trump supporters are violent threats to democracy, CBS chose to deceive its readers by not revealing the reported motive, which, per the police, was stated by the alleged murderer.

“North Dakota driver charged with fatally striking teenager says he purposely hit the teen after a political argument,” reads the CBS headline. Oh, okay … Please tell me more, CBS News. But wouldn’t you know it, nowhere does the story mention that the alleged murderer believed his victim was a dangerous Republican and a threat to him.

If this were a felon being held down by a cop

If, instead of a White Republican teen run over and killed by a Democrat who got out on bail within a week, a Black felon had been killed by a cop — would there be riots? Seems to me there were.

Seems to me that I not only watched Democrats riot for two years over that, I also saw:

  • A presidential candidate and his running mate contribute to the bail of felon rioters
  • Promises from Democrats that the riots would continue until they won
  • Televised ads this past weekend showing a female relative of the Black felon who died (where she said so much more needed to be done)

Since we are sinners, more needs to be done. All of us have a self-centered nature and look out for ourselves. Therefore, there will always be a need to help others. However, why is it always liberals that seem to ignore half of the equation?

A liberal company and its subsidiary uses financial discrimination to suppress dissention against radical gay agenda

“Gays Against Groomers” organization banned from PayPal and Venmo

Florida Voice reported on the discrimination against “Gays Against Groomers” by PayPal and its subsidiary Venmo.

The organization Gays Against Groomers announced they are banned from making any transactions with large payment processors PayPal and Venmo. 

Gays Against Groomers is a coalition of gay people created to stop the sexualization and abuse of young children. They were recently seen outside of a meeting with a digital billboard displaying anti-grooming messaging at a Miami-Dade County school board meeting.

The Miami-Dade School Board voted 8-1 against the H-11 action which would recognize October as ‘LGBTQ+ History Month.’ The proposal was rejected because parents believed it conflicted with the state’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which Gays Against Groomers also were not in favor of, saying it was parents’ right to decide whether to teach their children about gay and lesbian rights rather than teachers in public schools.

“We are an organization that consists entirely of gay people whose only mission is to safeguard children from abuse,” they say. “Woke homophobia is real.”

Moms for Liberty had a similar altercation with PayPal, having its funds frozen by the payment processing corporation. In August, DeSantis helped play a role in influencing the company to unfreeze their funds.

I would hope that those gays who stand against grooming would speak out; however, it doesn’t seem the social media giants approve

If anyone has a voice that differs from the social media giants (as I do), they should expect to be minimized, defunded, and otherwise brought down.

Liberals pushing false narratives again (remember the Russian collusion hoax)

A TikTok influencer tells how a Democrat group offered to pay him $400 to push a false narrative

The Federalist outlines a case where a TikTok influencer was approached with an offer to push a false narrative.

A left-wing nonprofit focused on “fighting disinformation” allegedly offered a TikTok influencer $400 to spread lies about Republican involvement in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

Preston Moore, a lawyer with a large following on TikTok, told his followers in a video on his account that he was approached by the Good Information Foundation to make an “anti-Donald Trump propaganda post related to the January 6 investigation that is completely not true.”

After Preston said he was interested in collaborating, the foundation reportedly told him what to include in his post, including “images and scenes from the January 6th insurrection” and talking points like “the violence on January 6 was actually planned and paid for by Trump Republicans.” Specifically, the foundation told Preston he could say that the “Trump campaign paid literally millions of dollars to make January 6 happen” and that many Trump officials and Republican members of Congress were involved.

Other examples of “key messaging” Preston says the foundation highlighted for him to include was that “there is an ongoing threat of political violence or MAGA Republicans trying to overturn elections,” and that he should try to channel the anger of his followers to make them, as he summarized, “more likely to vote in the midterms.” 

When Moore responded to the email by asking, “What is the basis for the claim that the Trump campaign itself paid millions of dollars to make the January 6 siege of the Capitol happen?” he says the foundation refused to answer his question.

“We know of only one person who blew the whistle, but God only knows how many people are taking them up on this,” Scott Walter, president of Capital Research Center, told The Federalist. “Just how many TikTokers are they doing this with? How many Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts are they targeting? How much money have they allocated? Because $400 is total chump change for these guys.”

Based on this, how much information can you trust from TikTok?

Then again, if I got my news from the source of the Tide pod challenge, maybe trust isn’t the central issue. Maybe I’m not really looking for information, but entertainment.

Again, a social media giant limits the conversation by removing a group

TikTok bans CatholicVote after they flag videos on LGBTQ agenda for kids

CatholicVote shows the hypocrisy of TikTok in their removal of CatholicVote.

The Big Tech video platform banned CatholicVote “for ‘hateful behavior’ after it posted videos calling attention to sexualized LGBT-themed children’s books and drag shows intended for kids,” reported Caroline Downey at the National Review:

While the platform has flagged the organization’s content in the past, today it was formally locked out from its account, Joshua Mercer, communications director for CatholicVote.org, told National Review.

TikTok had previously restricted the CatholicVote account on two occasions. 

In one video, CatholicVote intern Ethan Potter read passages of the “Pride”-themed book “Rick,” about a ten-year-old boy learning about sex and “gender identities” from an LGBTQ after-school program.

In the other case, CatholicVote posted a clip from a local news report about a drag event in Texas, where children were filmed interacting with an obscene performer. A woman who protested the event tells reporters in the video that she opposes drag events in general, but would not be getting involved if it weren’t for the children being exposed to it. “It’s kids now,” she says.

“It started with drag queen story hour, now it’s children’s books about sex and 10-year-olds throwing cash at grown men,” CatholicVote’s caption stated.

In both instances, TikTok claimed the posts were in “violation” of the platform’s “hateful behavior” policy. “We do not tolerate content that attacks or incites violence against an individual or a group of individuals on the basis of protected attributes,” read a notification sent to CatholicVote. “We do not allow content that includes hate speech, and we remove it from our platform. We also suspend or ban accounts that have multiple hate speech violations.”

Here, TikTok seems to show its CCP credentials

By eliminating the voice of CatholicVote, TikTok shows its origins with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). 

Does this refer to the inclusion of conservative ideas or actual misinformation?

A report suggests that TikTok search results are riddled with misinformation

Detroit News mentions a report suggesting that TikTok searches result in multiple instances of misinformation.

TikTok may be the platform of choice for catchy videos, but anyone using it to learn about COVID-19, climate change or Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is likely to encounter misleading information, according to a research report published Wednesday.

Researchers at NewsGuard searched for content about prominent news topics on TikTok and say they found that nearly 1 in 5 of the videos automatically suggested by the platform contained misinformation.

Searches for information about “mRNA vaccine,” for instance, yielded five videos (out of the first 10) that contained misinformation, including baseless claims that the COVID-19 vaccine causes “permanent damage in children’s critical organs.”

Researchers looking for information about abortion, the 2020 election, the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, climate change or Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on TikTok found similarly misleading videos scattered among more accurate clips.

The amount of misinformation — and the ease with which it can be found — is especially troubling given TikTok’s popularity with young people, according to Steven Brill, founder of NewsGuard, a firm that monitors misinformation.

TikTok is the second most popular domain in the world, according to online performance and security company Cloudflare, exceeded only by Google.

Brill questioned whether ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok, is doing enough to stop misinformation or whether it deliberately allows misinformation to proliferate as a way to sow confusion in the U.S. and other Western democracies.

“It’s either incompetence or it’s something worse,” Brill told The Associated Press.

TikTok released a statement in response to NewsGuard’s report noting that its community guidelines prohibit harmful misinformation and that it works to promote authoritative content about important topics like COVID-19.

“We do not allow harmful misinformation, including medical misinformation, and we will remove it from the platform,” the company said.

Does this surprise anyone?

When the left (the source of the Russian collusion hoax, the golden showers hoax, and numerous other lies broadcast as fact for years) controls a media, they include lies. When the left (those who ignored the Hunter Biden laptop, Joe Biden’s Council on Foreign Relations “Well, son-of-a-bitch” admission on getting a prosecutor fired who was investigating his family, and many other oversights) controls the media, they sweep many things that would damn them under the rug.

 

We know who commands the American Gestapo, but who remains in the Vichy Republicans?


The American Gestapo

After a judge orders the DOJ to respond to the Trump raid, A.G. Garland claims to seek to open the warrant and Rep. Gabbard calls this an abuse of power

The Christian Broadcasting Network reports how a judge has ordered the Department of “Justice” to respond on the Trump raid while Tulsi Gabbard accuses of Biden of a blatant abuse of power.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland admitted in a hastily called press conference on Thursday afternoon that he had personally signed off on the search warrant issued against former President Trump, authorizing the unprecedented FBI raid.

Garland also revealed that the Department of Justice is seeking to unseal the mysterious warrant, citing “substantial public interest in this matter.”

The move comes right after the same federal judge who signed the warrant ordered the DOJ to respond to a watchdog group’s motion to unseal the warrant.

Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart told the DOJ to respond by next Monday, but all the details still might not be made public. “The response may be filed ex parte and under seal as necessary to avoid disclosing matters already under seal. In that event, the Government shall file a redacted Response in the public record,” Reinhart wrote.

On Aug. 9, Judicial Watch filed its motion asking the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida to unseal as soon as possible the search warrant materials used by the FBI to raid Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this week. 

“The Biden administration’s raid on President Trump’s home is an outrageous, reckless, and unprecedented abuse of power. And the American people have an urgent right to know how it happened and who is responsible,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

The Albany Times Union and The New York Times have joined Judicial Watch in filing for the unsealing of the warrant by filing an amicus letter and motion respectively. 

Due to multiple organizations filing to unseal the warrant, Judge Reinhart ordered, “To avoid the need for individualized orders on any future motion(s) to unseal, it is ORDERED that the Government shall file an omnibus response to all motions to unseal on or before 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on August 15, 2022.”

According to numerous media outlets, the warrant reportedly relates to an alleged dispute over the Presidential Records Act

As CBN News reported, the probe is reportedly part of a federal investigation into whether Trump took classified records from the White House after he left office. Trump had previously cooperated with federal officials, allowing them access to his Mar-a-Lago home to reclaim documents.

(continued)

Meanwhile, former congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard said the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home shows an “escalating, very dangerous trend of abuse of power” by the Biden administration.

“This is something that every American should be extremely concerned about because this raid is just the latest serious escalation of this disturbing trend that we’ve seen of blatant abuse of power by those in power, to not only protect their friends but to target their political opponents or frankly anyone who dares to dissent or challenge or disagree or even question what this administration is doing,” Gabbard told Fox News.

While this statement from Gabbard may be meant merely to distinguish her from the Democrats that push through the rest of the Build Back Broker plan by Biden, I agree with her rhetoric

But, while I agree with her rhetoric, more than rhetoric is needed. Action first. Rhetoric can come when things are not as critical and people might need to be informed on a topic. However, the only people without an opinion now are those who remain willfully blind.

In what alternate universe does the Democrat-bolstered IRS need to enforce its judgements with deadly force?

Once a voluntary tax to a life-and-death matter, the Biden Inflation Reduction bill makes the IRS too powerful

As reported by Breitbart and archived at Archive Today, a job advertisement for the Internal Revenue Service includes a “Major Duty” where the applicant should expect to “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”

A job listing for the position of IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent stresses that applicants must “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force” in order to carry out their duties.

The job listing says:

As a Special Agent you will combine your accounting skills with law enforcement skills to investigate financial crimes. Special Agents are duly sworn law enforcement officers who are trained to “follow the money.” No matter what the source, all income earned, both legal and illegal, has the potential of becoming involved in crimes which fall within the investigative jurisdiction of the IRS Criminal Investigation. Because of the expertise required to conduct these complex financial investigations, IRS Special Agents are considered the premier financial investigators for the Federal government.

It goes on to describe Special Agent “major duties,” which include “[carrying] a firearm and [being] willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” Applicants for the Special Agent position must also “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”

By the way, this requires a hat tip to Bunkerville.

Despite Democrats’ dive into the realm of the National Socialists, no justification exists for arming the pencil pushers that cannot answer the phones or issue tax returns

If they cannot handle manning a phone bank to respond to questions about tax forms and if they cannot issue tax returns on time, then they really don’t deserve guns or deadly force. This weaponizing should not last beyond the first few minutes of Republican domination of the House and Senate.

Vichy Republicans defined

These top GOP senators still haven’t condemned Democrats’ banana republic FBI raid on Donald Trump

The Federalist tells us in a 9 August 2022 article how certain Republican politicians have not condemned the raid on Trump’s home.

More than 24 hours after the FBI’s “unannounced raid” on former President Donald Trump’s home, some in Senate GOP leadership including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have refused to condemn the rogue agency’s actions against their party leader.

While House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy rushed to condemn the Department of Justice’s “intolerable state of weaponized politicization” the night of the raid and even announced plans to “conduct immediate oversight of this department,” neither McConnell, Senate Republican Policy Committee Chair Roy Blunt, nor Senate Republican Whip John Thune had publicly mentioned a word to their constituents, the press, or their colleagues by Tuesday afternoon about taking action against the politicized bureaucratic agencies that have increasingly targeted Americans.

Instead of addressing the two-tiered justice system in the U.S., something nearly 80 percent of Americans say is a legitimate problem facing the nation, as a united party that stands behind its former presidential leader, McConnell and his Senate peers have remained deliberately mum on the FBI’s ambush at Mar-a-Lago.

Their offices did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s questions about whether they plan to condemn the raid.

Dan Crenshaw, my representative, has remained silent on this overreach

Dan would not stand up for us when the Democrats cheated. I cannot find any comment from him on 2000 Mules or any statement in support of True the Vote; therefore, I can only assume he depends on Democrat votes to be elected.

 

This Biden-commented story will now disappear; HOWEVER, …


Biden jumped into the middle of what he thought would be the persecution of Muslims in redneck America

Reuters applauded Joe Biden’s sidling up to the Muslim community by way of pushing for an investigation of four murders of Muslim men.

Police in New Mexico on Sunday asked for the public’s help in locating a “vehicle of interest” in their probe of four fatal shootings of Muslim men whose slayings in Albuquerque over the past nine months are believed by investigators to be related.

Mayor Tim Keller said state authorities were working to provide an “extra police presence at mosques during times of prayer” as the investigation proceeds in New Mexico’s largest city, home to as many as 5,000 Muslims out of some 565,000 total residents.

The latest victim, police said, was gunned down on Friday night, in a killing that local Islamic leaders said occurred shortly after he had attended funeral services for two others slain during the past couple of weeks.

All three of those men, as well as the very first victim who was shot dead in November, were Muslim men of Pakistani or Afghan descent who resided in Albuquerque.

Police have given few details of the latest murder but described the first three killings as ambush shootings. Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has characterized them as “targeted killings of Muslim residents.”

U.S. President Joe Biden posted a message on Twitter on Sunday expressing solidarity with the Muslim community, adding, “These hateful attack have no place in America.”

Of course Dementia Joe channeled Obama

Dementia Joe has done his best to continue the failed portions of the Obama years. Why not return to this?

The first problem is that the murderer wasn’t who Joe Biden suspected

A 51-year-old Sunni Muslim has been arrested in connection with the murders

The United Kingdom’s Metro reports that Muhammad Syed, an Afghan Sunni Muslim, has been arrested.

A ‘primary suspect’ has been charged in two of four killings of Muslim men in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Muhammed Syed on Tuesday night was charged with murder for two of the killings. He was also identified by police as the main primary suspect in the other two cases.

When police arrived to search Syed’s house in Albuquerque, he drove away in a Volkswagen Jetta that they believe was used in one of the ‘ambush-style’ shootings.

Police followed Syed from the home before eventually arresting him in Santa Rosa – about 118 miles west of Albuquerque.

Syed was charged with the July 26 murder of Aftab Hussein and the August 1 murder of Muhammad Afzaal Hussain.

‘The gun used in both of those shootings was discovered during the overnight search of his home,’ stated police.

Police Chief Harold Medina said they are still working to charge Syed for the deaths of Naeem Hussain on August 5 and Mohammed Zaher Ahmadi on November 7, 2021.

He did not know whether the deaths would be classified as hate crimes, serial killings, or both.

Any speculation on how long it will take Biden and the Democrats to act like this never happened?

Will you be able to measure the shortness of time?

However, we cannot let them sweep the Trump raid under the rug

Despite the tendency of the main-stream-dupe Democrats to swing their cameras away from the real story of the Trump raid, we cannot let it go.

Standing for Trump’s rights not to be raided and even eliminating the FBI are not a matter of opposing “defund the police.” The police that I support are local and must answer locally for their actions. Accountability remains a central part of any structure that I want to use to invest power.

The FBI, on the other hand, does not answer to a local control (or any control outside of the Democrat National Committee). That presented quite a conflict of interest (or at least should have) when the House, Senate, and presidency were held by the other party. And, now that the American gestapo has installed their own brand of demented leader, it compounds the problem.

Therefore, we cannot afford to let this go, since, as we were reminded by The Federalist‘s Margot Cleveland:

If we have the attorney general come out, we have the FBI director come out and say, “We had evidence. We had evidence that he had classified documents. We went to court. We did this the right way. We got a warrant” — why should we believe them? They already proved to us that they were willing to lie and that a judge was willing to rubber-stamp something in the past to get Trump.

 

The lack of media confidence finally gets recognized


A year ago, Americans were showing their distrust in media

The US ranks last among 46 countries in trust in media

A Poynter article dated 24 June 2021 reports on a Reuters survey that found little trust among Americans when it came to print and broadcast media.

The United States ranks last in media trust — at 29% — among 92,000 news consumers surveyed in 46 countries, a report released Wednesday found. That’s worse than Poland, worse than the Philippines, worse than Peru. (Finland leads at 65%.)

The annual digital news report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford also found some improvement in trust in nearly all the countries surveyed — probably thanks to COVID-19 coverage — but not in the U.S. where the low rating was flat year to year.

One explanation, though not necessarily the only one, is the extreme political polarization in the U.S. This study, like many others, found extremely high levels of distrust — 75% of those who identify as being on the right thought coverage of their views is unfair.

Local news, both print and broadcast, fared better than national news. However, the findings for struggling local print outlets were not all good.

Interest in local news and willingness to pay for it was not strong. Only 21% in the U.S. said that they pay for news online. Of those who do, 31% said they pay for The New York Times, 24% for The Washington Post and only 23% for the site of a local or regional paper.

The most popular local news topic, by a wide margin (62%), was weather. Staples of local newspaper coverage like politics (33%) and education (16%) lagged. Those surveyed indicated a preference for local broadcast (52%) as a source over newspapers (16%).

As of the coronavirus media coverage, surely the shine had to come off from media

Because such a stark difference between reporting on coronavirus and observable reality (as could be seen by driving by hospitals), surely only the lazy and the really gullible continued believing the Democrat narrative.

After this year’s poll, the media starts to catch on

A Gallup poll indicates trust in television and newspapers has dropped to historic lows

Gallup reports that an annual poll of 1,005 respondents found that our trust of television and newspapers has fallen to record lows.

  • 16% of Americans have a great deal/quite a lot of confidence in newspapers
  • 11% have some the degree of confidence in television news
  • Democrats’ confidence low but higher than Republicans’, independents’

Americans’ confidence in two facets of the news media — newspapers and television news — has fallen to all-time low points. Just 16% of U.S. adults now say they have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers and 11% in television news. Both readings are down five percentage points since last year.

Gallup has tracked Americans’ confidence in newspapers since 1973 and television news since 1993 as part of its annual polling about major U.S. institutions. The latest readings are from a June 1-20 poll that saw declines in confidence ratings for 11 of the 16 institutions measured and no improvements for any.

Television news and newspapers rank nearly at the bottom of that list of institutions, with only Congress garnering less confidence from the public than TV news. While these two news institutions have never earned high confidence ratings, they have fallen in the rankings in recent years.

A majority of Americans have expressed confidence in newspapers only once — in 1979, when 51% did. But there is a wide margin between that and the second-highest readings of 39% in 1973 and 1990. The trend average for newspapers is 30%, well above the latest reading of 16%, which is the first time the measure has fallen below 20%. The percentage of Americans who say they have “very little” or volunteer that they have no confidence is currently the highest on record, at 46%.

Confidence in television news has never been higher than its initial 46% reading in 1993 and has averaged 27%, considerably higher than the current 11%. This is the fourth consecutive year that confidence in TV news is below 20%. And for just the second time in the trend, a majority of Americans, 53%, now say they have very little or no confidence at all in TV news.

When their reporting did not line up with observable reality, what did they expect?

When the main stream media focused on stories that only supported their narrative, did they not expect Americans to seek out alternative sources and stop trusting the newspapers / Democrat TV news? When the most recent hire at the TV station reported the latest “surge” of coronavirus (that didn’t pack hospitals that we pass to and from work), did they expect we would just accept their word?

It seems that main stream media’s Katy Tur has started to feign some introspection. Maybe some actual soul searching that involved review of the bias on main stream media shows might have convinced a few of us.

One other thing that might make American news consumers a little less jaded would be if the media stopped covering staged “events” as real news (like where AOC acts like she is being handcuffed at a protest in front of the Supreme Court when no handcuffs were present).

The best part is how AOC exposes her fraud by raising her fist 10 seconds into doing her fake “perp walk.” Not even the most dedicated in the Democrat press can cover for these idiots.

 

Accusations from the Left versus Actions from the Left


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)

 

The Left keeps digging to new lows


On Mothers’ Day, painting slogans on buildings housing women in crisis: is that pro-abortion or anti-life?

Protestia lays out the actions of the liberals as they revolt against the leaked Supreme Court opinion.

In light of the Supreme Court looking to abolish Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion fascists have taken to vandalizing churches and crisis pregnancy centers, tearing down any symbol that stands up for the life of the unborn.

One incident occurred in Boulder, Colorado, where vandals smashed windows and spray painted the Sacred Heart of Mary Church, writing: ‘My body, my choice,’ and ‘F*** the church,’ and “keep your religion off our bodies’ on the walls, along with the Antifa symbol.

Another victim of the attacks was the Pregnancy Center of Portland, with vandals smashing windows and writing ‘F*** CPCS (Crisis Pregnancy Centers) . Some of the services this particular one offered include:

  • Pregnancy Confirmation 
  • Pre-Abortion Consult
  • Clinical Pregnancy Testing and Confirmation
  • Ultrasound Exam
  • Gestational Age Determination
  • Complete Pregnancy and Abortion Options Consultation
  • Medical, Insurance, and Community Support Referrals

There have been nearly non-stop protests in the street against the supreme court and for pro-abortion, even though their state, being as liberal as it is, would have baby murder continue unabated. Yet Antifa accounts have been tweeting out addresses and leaving the bad part unsaid, likely resulting in this building being targeted.

Where are the liberals who called out for tolerance?

Where are the tolerant people on the left that wanted all sides to be heard?

Possessed activists still mob Justices at their homes

The New York Post reports on how the Left under Biden keeps digging every time a report comes out on their having reached a new low (since the Left keeps sending protesters to the homes of Supreme Court Justices and Biden will not condemn it).

While militant pro-choice activists doxxed the six Supreme Court justices that are expected to dismiss Roe v. Wade — publishing their partial addresses online — the protests they are planning outside their homes next week might not protected under the First Amendment and could be illegal. 

According to 18 U.S.C. 1507 – which relates to Obstruction of Justice – anyone who has the intent of “interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the tent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer” and pickets or parades in or near a court building or residents “occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness or court officer” will face a fine or imprisonment of one year. 

The law also applies to people with such intent using sound trucks or similar devices “or resorts to any other demonstration in or near such building or residence.” 

Earlier this week, the pro-abortion organziation “Ruth Sent Us” announced it would be hosting a “walk-by” on May 11, outside the Virginia and Maryland homes of conservative Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch. 

It is unclear if the demonstration will include “picketing” or “sound-trucks.” The protests are set to take place just over one week after the draft opinion was leaked – sparking mass concern among Democrats and abortion activists.

“Ruth Sent US” did not respond to requests from The Post on additional details regarding the demonstrations. 

On Friday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was pressed on whether the president wants the protestors to influence the justices to uphold Roe v. Wade, as he pushes for Congress to codify the ruling into law. 

“The President believes in peaceful protest.  He believes that’s part of our democracy and part of the history of the United States and this country,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One. 

“But he also respects and understands the independence of the third branch of government, and — I mean, obviously, the Justice Department — but also the role of the Supreme Court and what they play,” she continued. “So I wouldn’t say he has a view on that.  He believes in peaceful protests, but they’re going to make decisions they make, and we’re not going to prejudge a final opinion.”

Where are all of these peoples who are missing in action?

Where is:

  • The moderate Joe Biden that ran for president from his basement in 2020? All I have seen from Day One of his regime has been unabashed liberalism-bordering-on-Marxist dictatorship.
  • The “Great Uniter” who said he would bring us all together? If he is going to claim the role, he might want to put some shoe leather to that stance.
  • The freedom-loving Americans who want their laws created by elected officials accountable to them — not black-robed Justices appointed for life whose stated job only encompasses ensuring adherence to the Constitution?
  • The respect for our judicial system? If this is the newly accepted rules of engagement, should we assemble with torches outside Justice Roberts’ home until Obergefell falls?
  • Catholic Joe who says he cares so much about his faith?
  • The objective press (who cannot be found in the following article from a local Michigan tv outlet)?

Please call 1-555-The-Lost if you have seen any one of these.

Wisconsin Crisis Pregnancy Center fire bombed, but the press puts a pro-abortion spin on the story

Reuters took the fire-bombing of a Wisconsin Crisis Pregnancy Center and put an anti-abortion spin on the story. Odd how the objective press has completely disappeared.

The office of a conservative Wisconsin anti-abortion group was set on fire on Sunday, police said, days after it emerged that the Supreme Court is poised to reverse a landmark decision ensuring abortion rights nationwide.

A graffiti saying “if abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either” was also left behind, the Wisconsin Family Action’s office said in a statement, blaming a “leftist anarchist group” for the attack.

The Madison Police Department said it was investigating the Sunday morning fire as arson, adding that the fire was quickly put out by the local fire department. The department did not identify any suspects and said no injuries were reported.

The police said a molotov cocktail was thrown inside the building but that it had not ignited. “It appears a separate fire was started in response,” the police said.

Wisconsin Family Action says on its website it seeks to advance “Judeo-Christian principles.” It supports marriage as being “between one man and one woman” and the promotion of abstinence in the secondary school system. The group says it also opposes laws that support abortion.

The draft opinion, authored by conservative Justice Samuel Alito and published on May 2 by the Politico news outlet, would uphold a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

One would think that the nuns, priests, and volunteers at the Crisis Pregnancy Center were to blame

From the reading of the Reuters article, one might start to blame the victims.

Might that be the intent?

 

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.

This should be a template for taking on Black Lives Matter and CNN

The many businesses who were smashed to bits, looted, and burned to the ground during the Democrat “mostly peaceful protests” that swept through cities should follow this template of litigation.

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.

Let them take an low-end $55,000 out of the air when they are struggling on these other fronts. Let them buy Joe’s fantastical electric car and plug it up to the already-overburdened electrical system.

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.

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.
