Settled Science

What is and isn’t settled science? Let’s dispel a couple of these popular faux arguments.

The science debate.

Take the left’s view: that there is no real debate here; that science rules; that it should be the basis of all actions. So science literally rules

Now that translates to science should dictate all decisions. For instance, on COVID or climate change, or anything else for that matter. It is the definitive answer to problems.

The logical side: no one is denying that science exists and it is useful. (that’s the defensive posture) When making decisions on society, many of those are out of the arena of science. Leaders and officials are making decisions on lockdowns and mandates on travel, or on what you can do and buy. What food you eat or car you drive. Is that science?

To say, like Joe Biden, that science declares you should shut down the economy, which is not an area of science, removes decisions from those tasked to make them. Plus “science”- whatever all it includes – is not accountable for those decisions and their consequences.

And people are elected or appointed to make those decisions on all the necessary variables. If it were true that science dictates, then there is no purpose for government or those officials but to enforce a science edict. Simply have science dictate decisions.

One of the first rules on any topic where science is injected is to ask if it is actually part of science or how much of it is? That tells you a lot. Most of it is far outside its realm.

For instance, much of this societal, cultural stuff we are lectured about is not an exact area of science. But that is where leftist social engineers come in. So their social engineers – presumably all leftists – will interpret their science into our society and lives, or into the code we must live by. When anyone resists their code, they hold up the science card. (just like they play the race card) But we are not governed by a board of science.

And if officials are going to issue these edicts, then they better be able to explain them and be accountable for them, because science won’t be. So it is not just science making these decisions, let’s be clear. Don’t hide behind science as if it were unquestionable.

The objective, the left tells us, is and always should be to control the pandemic. Except that controlling the pandemic equates to controlling people. That theorem means simply, you control the people and you control the pandemic.

Often when they tell us science is settled, they really mean their interpretation of science is settled. And it usually is not all science. Unless you mean political science.

Haunting Biden

As soon as Joe Biden announced his bid in the primary for president, it presented a two-fold problem. On one side it seemed like a gift, while on the other it could be a referendum on Obama/Biden for eight years.

So though it seemed a great opportunity to personalize Joe, the prosecution of the case against Obama was fraught with setbacks. Well, that is partly because there is just so much to convict in those years, but the track record for doing that has not been good at all. Not to mention the lack of will to follow through among Republicans about doing it.

It would be a hard slog and there is only so much time in an election campaign to make the entire case — and since the case has not been pursued anywhere else. Especially in a year like this one with a pandemic interrupting the campaigning process. It would be a daunting task and take some skill to weave through all the grievances, corruption and abuses.

Yet it could be done. And all you would have had to say is Biden was there for eight years. That is his record. It is pretty self-evident. Case closed. Grand jury anyone?

However, you know the cozy coalition of media and desperate Democrats would resist an O=B referendum just as they are in resistance to this presidency now.

We know the issues from 2009 to 20017. Then they left with a big bang still echoing throughout Deep State to this day. It revealed all we knew about the duo of destruction. They were allies in evil, who never had accountability for any of it. It didn’t seem fair.

Even though Joe may be very much alive, he is still a very haunting presence.

Save America

We have one mission, to save America from the demise of the Left hanging over us.
Never have they been so close. It puts us in a dangerous place on the eve of election .

The worst part is if Biden won, with a majority in both houses, it would install one-party rule in government. Then they would immediately use any means to make that permanent. That is not great to think about.

  • Remove the Filibuster
  • Expand and pack the Supreme Court
  • Add DC and Peurto Rico statehood
  • Amnesty to illegals
  • Eliminate the electoral college
  • Initiate the New Green Deal
  • Reverse and replace Trumps’s EO’s
  • Repeal Tax cuts
  • Raise Taxes
  • Enact socialism
  • Countless other maneuvers.

 

It would be a permanent one-party rule where they could do anything they want. That is not democracy and not democratic.We would all be mere spectators strapped on a ride to Amerika. It can’t happen? Yet it is all closer than it seems.

Packing the courts does not matter to the left. The argument against it is another party would only add more seats, and so on. You end up with a bureaucracy or another legislative branch. But after their expansion, then they have to do everything necessary to protect and keep their party in power indefinitely.

So we are not really talking about Court packing but a one-party government rule.

Speech Czars

Now we have internet monopolies who think they are the speech police, even over news organizations, a WH press secretary, a political campaign or a Congressional committee.

But that’s on the internet, so how does that all work in the streets in public?

Well, guess who protests a Free Speech rally using thugs and violence? Anti-fa, or the Left and Biden’s helpers. That group Joe thinks doesn’t exist because they are only “an idea.”

Abc 7: Tensions rise after free speech rally turns violent in San Francisco

“Anderson posted photos to social media of his bloody mouth with a front tooth missing and another hanging loosely. He said anti-fascist protesters attacked him “for no reason.””

A related article on Fox News: Social media backlash resurrected over Biden’s transition team’s ties to Facebook and Twitter.

1984 called and it wants its fiction back.

Culture Shock And Awe

As luck would have it, we are gifted with another issue in a contested election. Well, one of those assumptions is correct anyway.

So it is a perceived volitile election and that opens the door wide for the mischief of the left. I mean what more could they try after a coup, special counsel investigation and even an impeachment just this year?

You got to hand it to the left to try to get out and stomp on the election before it even got kicked off. And dirt is their specialty. After all, they have been playing the culture war for years to try to abolish the right.

But how come Democrats never seem to get caught up in cancel culture?

Anyway, so the right insists on nominating and confirming a Supreme Court nominee and all their usual tactics come out. Smear smear, even to the point of changing the definition of packing the Supreme Court. A legitimate confirmation is now packing the Court. FDR must be laughing at that one.

All this should tell us that the perception polls we are fed are wrong. Why else would they be so worried? Remember their suppress the vote game in 2016. People see through it.

So they jumped on a Supreme Court nominee like a shark on chum. Villainize her, attack, attack. But she is too good for that. There’s no there there. Even their own base admits the only problem with her was the timing of the nomination. In other words, the Constitution. At least they raised lots of money on Roe fear.

After two days of testimony, all they could do is talk about Obamacare. So they went for the cheap shot: send a message about Obamacare to the High Court through the hearings. Just hope that it resonates in the hall with the Robed ones already seated.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden runs his whole campaign on politicizing a pandemic after his racism angle died on the vine. He weaponized it for months now. But even that is falling apart, a few revelations came out to wreck that train.

WHO announced lock downs should not be the preferred method of dealing with COVID. Then an article broke news that Coronavirus may be winding down. NYT also reported the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed has largely been a success. Oops.

“Despite the chaos in day-to-day politics and the fighting over issues like masks and lockdowns, Operation Warp Speed — the government’s agreement to subsidize vaccine companies’ clinical trials and manufacturing costs — appears to have been working with remarkable efficiency.” –NYT

Then even Dems could not get traction in SCOTUS hearings by using COVID to delay or cancel hearings. The pandemic-pulooza did not work well in the hearings against Repubicans either because there sat Amey Coney Barrett with her mid-western smile, willing to take anything they threw at her. Damn, the culture wars did not even get traction as Roe-Wade Flopped.

In fact, it looked like the people are so pleased with her that they now think confirmation is the right thing to do. So what if there is an election going on?

Imagine on the heels of all those failures, there are going to be disgruntled leftists somewhere. I mean they didn’t even get to stage a protest in the Capitol against her confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono was left to ask a question if Barrett had ever committed sexual assault or harassment since being an adult? Just a standard question now.

When in doubt fire the biggest blank you can find, even if it is empty.

About the only ones who don’t recognize the epic failure that all this has been is CNN. They are still chasing super-spreader events, while spreading manure everywhere. But wait, wasn’t there a steroid rage angle on Trump last week? Never mind.

Oh, that was before the Pence vs Harris debate. You know it was a bad night for Democrats when all they had was the talk about a fly that landed on Mike Pence’s hair. Maybe it was trying to tell them something. But they missed any warning sent them. Kamala’s facial expressions were more than enough distraction from a fly.

Now, one more thing rolls down the empty highway of the Left. After the second hearings, a Leftist named Garrison Keillor went on Twitter to reveal at least his exhaustion with their whole agenda. He wasted no time throwing Roe V Wade under the bus in the name of national unity. Say what? So for your entertainment pleasure, here is the Tweet captured that set off a firestorm of infighting among Leftist allies. Too soon, is it?

If it is one thing it hasn’t been on the Left, it is boring. Depressing maybe, but not boring.
Does that sound like Dems just might be in full meltdown mode?

Closer Argument

Even though it seems more like an election season this year, we are still coming up on the eve of election day 2020. Since Michelle put out a closer for team Obamas, it may be time to think out one on the right. If you didn’t see Michelle’s, it is a real riot.

Let me see if I can boil this down for even the squeamish anti-Trumers. (never-Trumpers may never go along) And it does not take a lot of thought, calculation, or even hubris.

Over the past many years, many of us have been compelled, even forced, to hold our noses to vote for a candidate we didn’t like. There was Romney, McCain, even Bush at times.

We understood the importance of the times and regretfully bit our tongues to vote for the choice the GOP put up. Sure, we complained knowing it was not the right choice but we voted for him. We understood the consequences of not voting for him.

Now here we are and just once ask you to vote for the leader of our party — the only option to the Left’s takeover of America. You know it and we know it. Debate is over.

This is the most consequential election in modern history. Can’t you hold your nose and bite your tongue for the good? What do you get for abstaining or throwing away a vote?

We’ve done it many times. If you don’t know or understand the threat we face from progressives (or however they identify), then may God have mercy on you, and us.

What’s Wrong With Biden

What is wrong with Biden? No, I mean beyond the physical aspects already discussed. We are going into uncharted waters.

You might see him as the Trojan Horse. Biden is the perfect frontman for Marxism because he doesn’t know or understand it. Clearly that is one of the reasons Obama picked him. Yes, he was always progressive but he didn’t get where it was all going – the destination.

So the debate did not go particularly well? What do you expect from a slithering serpent of the Swamp like Joe, who has no recognition of what it all means? Joe is Bolshevik Biden without Bernie’s self-awareness. Or what the Soviets called a useful idiot.

Then hide and seek Biden left on his campaign train ride, which was an obvious metaphor for his campaign. Get onboard the fast track, destination unknown. Enjoy the ride; watch and feel the momentum carry us to wonderland where there is no turning back.

Get the riding with Biden theme?

The beauty of it is, if we all follow, we will find ourselves somewhere we can’t recognize not knowing just how we got there, because we will be so busy dealing with the caustic effects.

But by then the train ride will be over. The conductor already took our tickets and no one will be accountable. The same train that took us there will not be able to return us. There is no ticket back. Bernie, the pied-piper of socialism, will be laughing from wherever he is.

Biden was too dumb to know, he was too convinced and caught up in the means. Joe’s riding Amtrack in the sleeper car. We can’t afford to be so dumb. Joe’s handlers say “empathy is his super power.” But people don’t want sympathy or empathy, they want actions not emotions.

Personal Encounter Of The Worst Kind

It may not be recommended to write in the first person, however, these days I find it increasingly harder to avoid it. See, when I am very bothered or troubled by things, my instinct is to personalize it.

Obviously, I am very concerned by the stream of what I see going on. One could not ignore it if one really tried to. That is part of the point I will get to in a minute.

The beginning of this is that we now have had three and a half years of a Trump presidency so it is time to state some of the revelations we have seen. I look at it sort of like a lessons learned confirmation of many suspicions that built up over the years.

But let me use this one example. Almost since 2016 we have heard these comparisons to Nixon. It was like a forgone conclusion the left was setting up about Trump. Not that bad, you say, it’s par for the course.

Though if we really compared it to Nixon we would realize that old phrase “the cover up is worse than the crime” would be shredded to pieces. That has always been the high-water mark to liberals. (I know the term liberal is questionable, but convenient) They always assert that no matter what the crime is, the coverup of it is much worse, more corruptive.

So in this case a direct comparison would show that, while there was a cover up under Nixon, it was limited to those in the ranks who were involved directly in it.

But what we have here in this country is a monstrous collusion between Government, nefarious Democrats — and their many activities — and the media or national press organ, all involved in the acts and the coverup. This is far bigger and worse than anything the Russians could even try to do to the US. It might be hyperbole to some but come along.

In Nixon’s case you were dealing with a ring of people. There were Deep Throat and reporters breaking the story to a shocked public. Okay, not to delve into details but this has been their analogy, not mine. Press broke through — but it couldn’t under Obama.

What is going on in this country today far surpasses anything called a scandal. In fact, calling it a scandal would be minimizing what was done.

Another pet pieve of mine is prestigious historians talking about this or that period. Actually, they wait for events to happen and then talk about them where one can make conclusions in connecting dots. All very interesting, as history is, but not so efficient in dealing with present reality. Though I am curios why or how we got here, too.

While events are happening, we don’t always know what the end result or effect of them will be. In effect, we are writing history without knowing how it ends. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. At this time, we have the benefit of witnessing all the events in real time. It is all terrible and we cannot say with confidence where it ends.

We now can see this giant ball of collusion is very damaging. We may not know the full effect yet. One of the contributing symptoms of it, forget the cause, is that the Democrats or progressives are more incorrigible than about anything I ever saw before.

For instance, when we have been saying for years that Democrats don’t care that is now an understatement. They really, truly don’t. When we have said the ends justify the means, it is so much bigger than that simple concept. The why of both of those are mind-blowing. (and we may not even know the entire why)

What we know that they know is an indictment on the Left. They know what is wrong, they pursue it anyway as a means. The media knows it should not ignore the truth and what is going on, but they do anyway. Government people know they should not be operating maliciously but they do anyway. The contributing corruption, then, between all the collaborating allies, is a monstrous cabal.

The sum total of what it is doing is even greater than all the parts combined. (I hope that makes sense) No, it is not an illusion or conspiracy theory of our making. It is actively happening right in front of our faces. Remember Adam Schiff claimed the proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia is in front of our noses? That was ironic projection there.

What they are doing, collaboratively, is much more caustic than anything we’ve witnessed before. We thought we had seen it all. We thought we knew what bad was. But now it has gotten to the stage that it operates right in front of us, teasing us that there is nothing we can do about it if it were exposed.

When you point out any of the wrong doings or patterns of corruption, they laugh at you as if you are hallucinating. But the thing is we know it and they know it. There cannot be any honest agreement about that admission though.

There is another new term some people are using now called “next level” stuff. I don’t have to define that. However, everything is so next level now there aren’t any words for it. Maybe I will think of some. Never mind that. This is ultra-next level.

From my point of view, I finally made a few determinations. First is that the Left doesn’t care. Caring is nowhere in the scene.

So they know all this is corrupt, from Benghazi to government abuse and obstruction; to rogue, personal servers concealing government operations; to surveillance of a candidate; to a full-blown coup orchestrated on an incoming president; to a blanket cover up of everything done before it. Who is complicit in all of this? That list is long.

No, it is not at all akin to Watergate or Nixon, or any past scandals. And the players involved are far more egregious and sinister than those. One could even say 40 percent of the country might be participating in one way or another. The percentage doesn’t matter.

If the entire base of the Democrat Party, and their various allies, are all corrupted then it is a big net. We don’t have to look far for examples based just on what they say.

For instance: the Supreme Court nomination. Chuck Schumer ran out threatening if Republicans pick a justice, next year everything would be on the table. Everything was on the table anyway. Nothing has been off the table to Democrats yet.

Look further down though. Trump picked the nominee and then social media erupted. Sure we knew it was coming. Yet it is always far worse. The leftist base – way past the Move On days — are telling Democrats to do anything possible to stop this. Use any means they have. Use every dirty trick or illegal maneuver to delay or block it. Use impeachment to try to stop it. Anything at all, short of warfare and some of them already advocate that.

You see how pernicious it all is? Right and wrong mean nothing, even remotely, even the Constitution means nothing. The gig is up. They really are unhinged but in the most dangerous way. They don’t care about anything. They don’t care if the country burns. They don’t care if it causes chaos or civil war.

But they do care about results and they demand them. In effect, it is a hostile takeover where the assailant values nothing the American people value. There is no common ground. Actually any type of criminal behavior that works to their benefit is demanded. They don’t need to make exceptions because there can be no exceptions.

This has always been the reason why you cannot negotiate with terrorists. They want to run over you, beat you into submission, cower you to their demands. This is the real coup, the one against Trump was only an appetizer. You could call it the coup of coups. One where there is no end to it.

Back on the track of cast of characters. the media plays a crucial role in all of it. They too do not care. It is not a simple matter that they chose to ignore all this stuff. They blatantly don’t care about it either. They are cognizant of the veracity but it doesn’t matter. Still the cover up, or the attempt at it, goes on.

But now we all know, confirmed over and over again, what has gone on. And it was confirmed even from their own ranks within the Deep State, within media or press, and by the Left. They don’t care that we know either and that is where war could begin.

Ordinarily, the main objective is to expose and reveal it. That is the starting point. The goalpost has shifted. It is out in the open now but the players cannot be coerced or forced to do the right thing. It has been so long. And so far there has been no power to force it.

No more pretenses. Lawlessness is the bomb.

This is the real dangerous spot. We now have lots of people who are willing to do anything, including breaking every law, to achieve their desires. (whatever crazy things those are) But this monstrosity is working its deviant, defiant, criminal will to achieve its ends. They have no scruples. And we see repeatedly that nothing is going to stop them.

We thought a coup was the end game. We thought a gigantic cover up was the wider plot. Yet it was always much bigger than we thought.

I would like to leave you with a bit of good news only I really have none. If I happen to think of or run across any, I will let you know.

Complaining about the Transition Integrity Project’s Election Theft Plan Can Be Dangerous

Complaining about the Transition Integrity Project’s Election Theft Plan Can Be Dangerous

by Chris Farrell — Gatestone Institute
September 25, 2020

  • It seems that criticizing the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) and their plan to disrupt and steal the 2020 presidential election can be dangerous.
  • So — the leadership of TIP has spoken. Now you know their thinking, their motives and their true objectives. It seems Nils Gilman wants Michael Anton executed.
  • The brutality and viciousness of Marxism and its adherents is on display. Those that may have held reservations or harbored some doubt on my analysis of what TIP really had in store for the election now have their answers.
  • If Gilman advocates executing someone by firing squad for daring to question TIP, what other penalties and extraordinary measures were discussed by the supposed bipartisan arbiters of the electoral process? How is this “normal?”
  • Are you disturbed by how your news information is “curated?”

It seems that criticizing the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) and their plan to disrupt and steal the 2020 presidential election can be dangerous. Michael Anton, a former Trump administration official and now of the Claremont Institute, published an article titled, “The Coming Coup” that seems to have caught the attention of TIP co-founder Nils Gilman. According to the journalist Natalie Winters:

“Gilman, who serves as Vice President of Programs at the Chinese Communist Party-linked Berggruen Institute, took to Twitter to express his desire that Anton be executed in the same fashion as Robert Brasillach.

“Specifically, he insisted ‘Michael Anton is the Robert Brasillach of our times and deserves the same fate.'”

Controversial Supreme Pick Policies

As much as they say 2020 is laced with controversy, and that this Supreme vacancy is controversial, I beg to differ with that hogwash.

This is not controversial at all. RBG passed away under a Trump Presidency and he has the duty to nominate a replacement. Very simple. Maybe they don’t like that.

Then the Constitution gives the Senate the power of Advice and Consent. (we might bicker at some other times a little over advise vs. advice)

“[The President] shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.”

But we have had over 100 days of riots against the Constitution. The violence spread to major cities across America. Or as I call them, anti-peace rallies. We heard that voice of hate and anti-Americanism, loud and clear.

We heard the voices of the left when they promised to stack and pack the Supreme Court with ideological clones of the Left when they get the opportunity. We heard it clear.

We heard them when they said the Constitutional Electoral College process for elections has to go. We heard them vote for mob rule every chance they got. We heard them support rioting radicals in Seattle and Oregon, and defend it all as peaceful protesting.

We heard them declaring rioting and looting is some Constitutional right to be respected and allowed to continue. That would stand the First Amendment on its head, but who cares? They want a living, breathing, evolving Constitution as flexibe as Gumby, which will grant them any desire. We heard them, loudly.

And we heard Democrats like Pelosi when they moved forward with and refused to hold a vote on the impeachment in the House. No, no process rules or even the Constitution matters to progressive Leftists disguised as Democrats.

Now we hear threats from Schumer and Pelosi if they don’t get their way. Remember Schumer at the steps of the Supreme Court shaking his fist to the crowd, making personal threats at justices to give us what we want, or else there will be hell or impeachment.

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions. We will tell President Trump and Senate Republicans, who have stacked the court with right-wing ideologues, that you will be gone in November, and you’ll never be able to do this again.” — Schumer, Roll Call, March 5, 2020

So their voices were heard. In fact, Leftists’ screams are so loud you can barely hear anything else. Give the people a say, they tell us now. But the people had their say in 2016, and again in 2018, on Supreme Court issues. They didn’t like it.

And Democrats ignored it, then refused to accept the results of that election. Voices matter! Votes matter as well. And, like Obama said, elections have consequences.

So now, in view of Trump doing his duty and McConnell’s Senate following through, they tell us there will be consequences if they don’t get their way. Their threats are loud and clear; we hear them too. But we’ve already had the summer of riots. We’ve already had countless threats how these Leftists want to “bring down the whole thing.”

We’ve had them attack law and order for months with defunding and abolishing police schemes. They have carried the banner of Resistance down a flame-lit road to sedition, for 4 years. Do you think rules, laws or even the Constitution mean anything to these people?

They told us they will change the whole structure of the Supreme Court to favor the Left and will abolish the Electoral College. They’ll alter Senate rules. They proved they would run over or destroy anyone in their way by cancel culture or any means possible.

However, they lecture us on following some mythical rules that don’t even exist. We are told that we have no choice on socialism or commie agendas.(even the environment supports it, they claim) And they don’t want to honor the people’s voice on that. Just do it. No referendums, no votes, no public discussions about it. And they threaten us that, if we don’t accept it, they will burn the whole thing down if they don’t get their way.

Against a dark backdrop of the season of hate, and with fierce resistance from the Left on everything, it must seem radical then for Republicans to be doing exactly what they should Constitutionally be doing.

Only Democrats and media could turn that into a miscarriage of justice or controversy.

On Scalia, Obama had the power to nominate, which he did. But the Republican-controlled Senate had the power of advice and consent, which they exercised. All fairly benign, except to the toxic liberal minds.

Should we be surprised Democrats, unbound by Constitutional limits or law, would do “anything necessary” to get and keep power? Their oath means nothing since they believe in a future Utopia, foreign to this Constitution, while hating everything in the present.

The good news is that I’ve been hearing how many Dems have taken the initiative to Walk Away from the Democrat plantation, disgusted. We hear you!

RBG To Refried Beans

Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, just like she wrote in many stinging opinions, in dissent.

She sat on a seat during a president who was not of her political preference. She was in dissent with the executive branch and president. That was her opinion, okay.

But she had time and opportunity to leave under Obama’s regime, who could have replaced her with a suitable radical jurist. No she was in dissent on leaving then.

Now news comes out about a statement made to her granddaughter saying:”my fervent wish is to not be replaced until a new president is installed.” Once again, in dissent..

Dying wish trumps all?

Who is she to get that say? She had her say and voice when she did not retire despite her health. In dissent all the way. Now she appears to be crying out in dissent.

Yet in 2016, she wanted the nomination and confirmation process to go forward to replace Antonin Scalia, who was her ideological opponent as well as her good friend. Why can’t we use her own words then, as she is now, in dissent?

Didn’t she know of Scalia’s fervent desires about such things? Surely she knew he would not want to be replaced by Obama. She would have known that. But she said replace him under that president, even as he was termed-out and leaving office in months.

No, she was gung ho about ramming a nominee through to replace Scalia, despite the Senate being in Republican hands. Under the bus you go, good friend.(nothing personal)

That should have told us something there. Or is all that only refried beans now? She was in dissent then as she is in dissent now. Friends like that who needs enemies?

RBG told Senate in 2016 to do ‘their job,’ replace Scalia before election: report — NY Post

“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being the president in his last year,” Ginsburg told the New York Times in 2016 when she urged the Senate to do “their job” and consider President Obama’s court nominee Merrick Garland.

Diagnosing A War On Poice

Seems like it is past time to call what is going on for what it is, a war on police.

Most Want ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Laws to Protect Police, Fear for Public Safety

Thursday, September 17, 2020 — Rasmussen Reports

Most voters believe there is a war on police in America today and want to make attacks on cops punishable as a hate crime. Blacks worry most that these attacks will make their communities less safe.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters think there is a war on police going on. That’s up from 43% two years ago and up from a previous high of 58% in 2015. Just 29% disagree, while 12% are undecided.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) also support the adoption of a Blue Lives Matter law in their state that would make attacks on police and first responders a hate crime and increase the penalties for such attacks. That’s unchanged from 2016 when Louisiana became the first of more than a dozen states to adopt such a law. Only 25% oppose a Blue Lives Matter law where they live. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters are concerned that deadly attacks on the police will lead to a shortage of police officers and reduce public safety where they live, with 44% who are Very Concerned. Thirty percent (30%) don’t share that concern, but that includes only 14% who are Not At All Concerned.

Whites (63%) are bigger supporters of Blue Lives Matter laws than blacks (52%) and other minority voters (49%). But blacks (84%) are a lot more concerned than whites (66%) and other minorities (70%) about a potential shortage of police officers in their community.

I think the debate is over, time to believe the science.

Let It Rip or Rip It Up

I’m not sure how other people measure their disgust on the sliding scale but I know how I qualify my own. It has only been tested in recent events.

This week I had a short phone conversation with an acquaintance I’ve known for years. Everything was fine until at the end the person said I just hope we can do what we need to do not to re-elect this guy and he has to be voted out of office. That’s it, nothing about who else was running. Just throw Trump out of the White House.

I restrained from politics with this person, as I always have. It’s pointless. However, I could not resist suggesting, “careful what you wish for.” What do you mean” came a predictable response. I said “that alternative could be much worse.” So the conversation ended on that note with the person wondering what it meant. I thought it was fairly clear.

But isn’t that the point? They never consider alternatives or anything else for that matter. They know what they want. I could say what I want, too, but what good does that do?

That is the way it is with many people. No reasoned approach on what gets them to their conclusion. You can’t really have a dialogue with that. So I decided maybe I would put it in writing rather than waste my time. It is clear the person did not want to hear opposition.

It reminds me of the cancel culture. All they know is they want someone out, or marginalized from society. Somehow that goal fits their agenda and satisfies them. What a horrible way to view things, just cancel anything you don’t like or agree with.

Where does that power come from? It is part of mob mentality, meaning their voice and desire outweighs you or your views. And in the end, they cannot tolerate your view, belief or whatever – or you personally. It must go.

Now with the presidential race, they want to go backward and return to some euphoric Obama-Biden days. But the rest of us made it through and survived those years.

No, it was not easy.That was no picnic.

But we didn’t have a coup against the sitting president; no special counsel investigation of him; no one raking over of all his personal records; no public boycotts of anything to do with him; we didn’t prevent him from doing the job. And there was no impeachment designed and plotted from day one to oust him from office.

No riots and burning buildings with tens of thousands of decoys marching in the street. No attacks on Obama supporters. No band of people within government secretly working to undermine Obama’s administration. No courts lodging edicts to stop him. No press and media attacking him and Biden nonstop to delegitimize his election or presidency.

No sedition in the form of “resistance” to overthrow him.. No debate about the use of the 25th amendment to have him removed. No one telling people to “get in their faces” of Obama supporters, create a crowd and tell them they are not welcome in public.

No constant calls for impeachment from house members. No ripping up his State of the Union Speech in Congress. No games about preventing him from giving his SOTUS. No power plays to remove powers of the Constitutional presidency. No FBI executing phony FISA warrants and spying on him as a candidate and then as president. No surveillance of Obama’s team, and to frame him as a traitor to America.

No official of the DOJ refusing to follow and enforce executive orders or laws. No agenda to prevent President Obama from seeking or hiring people. No secretly telling other countries not to cooperate or work with the sitting president. No conspiring against him. No undermining of Obama as commander-in-chief within the military or Pentagon – or in the ranks. No working to undermine US military objectives by officials or former diplomats.

That would be only a starting point of the differences and what we endured for eight years as opposed to what the Left does now. They had their chance, wasn’t it enough?

9/11 Day Revisited

God Bless America …

On that day,
the day of memorial.

We know what this day is and what it means. But there is another side.

For me, for years, it is also a day of confrontation of what is wrong and evil which threatens us. Whether that be directly or indirectly; whether physically or by agenda. Within that realm is a lot to consider today, once all remembrances are done and respected.

At the nation’s Capitol on 9/11, Nancy Pelosi pulled off another stunt. (a poor attempt at one) She and her comrades came down the steps of the Capitol, supposedly in some reverence and symbolism, while carrying little American Flags in their hands. Someone led the singing of God Bless America. They had a moment of silence in remembrance and then turned, retreating back up the steps they descended.

Sure was a lot of symbolism there, wasn’t it? That’s all it was. But actually all those symbols Democrats are directly at odds and war with: the American Flag, unity, respect for our country, American-exceptionalism and our history.

Also, how could you try to appear to be all that while fully-engaged in sedition?

Yet there they were in stark contrast to all they really stand against – or what they stand for. Another repulsive skit in an election year, like everything else they do. But Pelosi has no shame and proved herself the queen of hypocrisy.

Well of course God Bless America would sound better than God d__ America, as Rev Wright put it. But why the lie? You figure it out.

Let’s also remember that NY and Mayor De Blasio decided to forgo most of the 9/11 ceremony and traditional reading of names weeks ago. But Frank Siller’s foundation, Tunnels To Towers, stepped in to say they would pay for and do it. So they did.

The COVID virus is too dangerous and apparently the ceremony too hazardous for Gov Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio. Yet tens of thousands of protestors who march or roam the streets are no problem in a pandemic. Shows what priorities Democrats, progressives have.

…”the land that I love.” Say that Demonrat progressives.

Coup In The Works

Okay kiddies, let the grownups in the room speak about serious matters civilly now. Or at least take their best crack at it. But know they are serious about what they are doing.

The Coming Coup?

Michael Anton

Essay — 09.04.2020

Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense himself all but publicly told the president not to invoke the Insurrection Act. His implicit message was: “Mr. President, don’t tell us to do that, because we won’t, and you know what happens after that.”

All this enthused Joe Biden, who threw subtlety to the winds. The former United States Senator (for 26 years) and Vice President (for eight) has not once, not twice, but thrice confidently asserted that the military will “escort [Trump] from the White House with great dispatch” should the president refuse to leave. Another former Vice President, Al Gore, publicly agreed.

One might dismiss such comments as the ravings of a dementia patient and a has-been who never got over his own electoral loss. But before you do, consider also this. Over the summer a story was deliberately leaked to the press of a meeting at which 100 Democratic grandees, anti-Trump former Republicans, and other ruling class apparatchiks got together (on George Soros’s dime) to “game out” various outcomes of the 2020 election. One such outcome was a clear Trump win. In that eventuality, former Bill Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta, playing Biden, refused to concede, pressured states that Trump won to send Democrats to the formal Electoral College vote, and trusted that the military would take care of the rest.

The leaked report from the exercise darkly concluded that “technocratic solutions, courts, and reliance on elites observing norms are not the answer here,” promising that what would follow the November election would be “a street fight, not a legal battle.”

Two more data points (among several that could be provided). Over the summer, two former Army officers, both prominent in the Democrat-aligned “national security” think tank world, wrote an open letter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in which they urged him to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to drag President Trump from the Oval Office at precisely 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021.

About a month later, Hillary Clinton declared publicly that Joe Biden should not concede the election “under any circumstances.” The old English major in me interprets the word “any” to mean “no,” “none,” “nada,” “niente,” “zero,” “zilch” “bupkis”…you get the idea.

This doesn’t sound like the rhetoric of a political party confident it will win an upcoming election. …./ (must read)

As that old saying goes, if it happens in politics, you can bet it was planned. And it will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Let’s call it Coup On Main Street.

So while the Democrats and media openly broadcast their outrage over their oetty grievances with Trump, this is what they have brewing among their ruling class elites.

Another Mostly Peaceful Event

Another “mostly peaceful protest” event took place in Rochester, NY on Fridayu night. Otherwise known as a Democrat registration drive — or Democrat outreach event.

I’m still looking for the mostly peaceful part.

The Daily Mail reports:

The crowd chants, ‘If you don’t give us our shit, we shut shit down.’

‘We’re shutting you down’: Violent BLM protesters attack stunned diners and smash up a restaurant in Rochester in shocking footage during protest over the death of Daniel Prude

  • · A third night of protests took place in Rochester, New York, over the death of Daniel Prude
  • · Footage on social media showed demonstrators shutting down a restaurant while residents dinned
  • · It mirrored a similar incident in Washington D.C. when some protesters demanded they raise their fist in solidarity for the cause
  • · Authorities deployed tear gas, and reportedly pepper balls, at protesters who did not disperse at their order
  • · The demonstration was declared an ‘unlawful assembly’ after the group marched through downtown Rochester
  • · Daniel Prude, 29, died of suffocation in police custody in March, but outrage ignited when new footage was released this week

Rochester First reports that the first few hours were filled with prayer and speeches, including one given by Daniel Prude’s brother, Joe.

As the massive crowed marched down avenues and streets, they chanted, ‘Daniel Prude!’

But as the group turned onto Court Street, they were met with a wall of law enforcement officers waiting.

‘Rochester police has deemed this an unlawful assembly,’ the officers shouted through mega phones at demonstrators. People who stayed behind would be arrested, authorities said.

See story: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8700321/Protesters-cause-diners-flee-panic-shut-restaurant-Rochester.html

So if you don’t give us our shit, we shut shit down. Well, did they shut down the DNC convention? I believe that answers any questions about it.

Can there be any doubt BLM is conducting violence? So we can stop listening to that lie.

Say the name….Riot!

As The News Turns

This post is based on what is now typical morning, pre-election news coverage, If you wanted music accompaniment, you might go with Eric Clapton and Tina Turner — “Tearing Us Apart.”

On MSDNC’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski has decided a while back that Trump is not leaving. He just isn’t. She thinks they should deal more with that subject. Joe Scarborough, on the other hand, cautions her not to worry that the ‘autocracy’ in the courts etcetera has everything under control. He thinks there is enough reason to think courts and judges have all the solutions at hand. (this guy was a conservative and Republican, ever?)

Mika seems to think it will take a special tactical force and military swat team, with 4-star generals and military equipment assistance, to physically extract Trump from the White House in January. Can you imagine the dreams she is having? (being married to Joe to ice the cake) She has explored this subject for months though few others will play along, long enough to assuage her concerns. Who knew Mika had such a great mind for conspiracies?

Now on CNN – and this is all by 6:30 AM – they have stayed mostly with the COVID-central theme. Numbers they claim could be well into 100’s of thousands by December. Even 800+ thousand deaths is a high limit. Every one of which, you know, is directly traceable back to Trump. He was very busy as the grim reaper.

Then there is the other problem, just as big, the vaccine scandal. The administration has asked states to make a plan for distributing a vaccine by November. And that sent them hyper-speculating on motives that maybe Trump is trying to preempt normal procedures and just shoot people up with bleach in November. Kidding aside, Trump’s real motive for these plans must be the election.

Wait, I thought they like plans? They always demand we have plans. But never mind that they seem to be undermining the legitimacy of the vaccine. Like we really need that. But then this probably has something to do with Putin, too. Everything does.

Meanwhile, CNN will keep you daily updated on the worst news possible on the pandemic. They figure It wouldn’t quite be a pandemic without politicizing and weaponizing it. Whatever does happen, they just shift the goalposts to compensate and attack Trump accordingly. See, if states do follow the guidelines, then the guidelines were corrupted by Trump. If they don’t, it is Trump’s fault for undermining the legitimacy of them

Then there is Rip Van Biden who awakens occasionally to say he would have done it right and most of those lives would have been saved, which media largely seems to be buying. But do not ask what Joe would have done differently from Trump that would have changed all the dynamics?. If they could think of anything they would have said it already.

News media has their narrative they can adjust by plugging in little things along the way. That keeps it interesting like a soap opera. You almost have to tune in daily to find out what new thing they’ve come up with. Scriptwriters must be working 24/7.

I’d say the creative plot award of the year should be going to Morning Joe and MSDNC. It also assures Mika of a job, she’s the crazy one to keep an eye on. The Pentagon is probably waiting to see what she comes up with.

And they wonder why Trump calls it Fake News?

Coming Attractions: Port-Amerika

For anyone listening: I am only a messenger, one voice, and I control nothing or no one. But there is one interesting message I have to pass along now.

Please put it in context that the Left has been at this for months, for years, and their rhetoric is always high. That in mind, this comes from collective Marxist organizers.

I don’t know that they can crank tensions up any higher but that is their idea.

Black Panther Disciples

REMEMBER:

#September1st is the first day of
#SuperStrikeSeptember:

Collision symbol
Largest organized #GeneralStrike in modern US history

Collision symbol
Begins the same day as the nationwide #MarchForJustice for #BreonnaTaylor

Collision symbol
Every city will implement the #PortlandPrototype protest model

 

(BPD)–On September 1st, 2020, the Black Lives Matter movement, in #solidarity with the US #LaborMovement, shall make history. Together, the People will rise up and seize the reins of power and production and finally set this nation on the right path. The plan is simple:

What we already knew, Portland is their protest model, their prototype. And they plan on pollenating that across America. I certainly hope the DOJ is watching it like the rest of us.

They boast this riot model of violence and urban terrorism has been sustained for over ninety days. So they plan on duplicating that success everywhere they can.

And there is definitely a solidarity with media and Democrat pols. What is left to the imagination? Now you know what to expect from Dems and media who amp it up.

Déjà vu Election Season

Since some of the lead up to this election is starting to remind me of the 2000 election, I thought it would be nice to take a retro look back at it to see what I find.

We all remember that election probably as if it were yesterday because of how traumatic it was. Trauma can do that often etching something in your mind so as not to be lost.

We know how it ended but that was not the issue. It was contested every which way possible; it went on for months – which at times felt like years. At least then it was a standard election until all hell broke loose on election day.

Remember the recounts and the vote-mining operations?

In the end it was a confirmation from the Supreme Court that granted Bush the presidency. That’s when it got even worse. Never satisfied with the results, Dems persisted.

Democrats never quite accepted it and that went on for some time. At least until the 911 attacks wiped it off the top of the list. It was a volatile time even before that.

Democrats did not seem to mind the litigation process. As long as it was in limbo, they didn’t care. Remember the every vote counts and count every vote chants.

Now that is where the 2020 election is starting to feel a lot like that one. I mean 3 months away and they are already posturing for something, problems, contesting results. The story is Biden has over 300 layers already working on it.

No doubt they are war-gaming any scenario so they have an active plan on how to proceed. You can’t plan enough.

One probable prediction is that it may never be considered settled if Trump is declared winner in the end. Try to plan for that? All those plans will make us a miserable and unsettled country. That doesn’t seem to bother the Left at all. As long as they are trying to get the outcome they want.

There is a pattern here.

They tried a coup, a counterintelligence investigation, a special counsel probe and investigations in Congress over three years to its results, then to an impeachment. All that did not produce the outcome they wanted.

First, they went after Michael Flynn from day one to try to breach Trump’s campaign and his presidency after elected. They even tried parlaying some of it into the Southern District of NY courts and the DC Courts to probe Trump any way they could.

They took down his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, surveilled people from the campaign like Carter Page and George Papadopoulos even before he was elected. Lied to FISA. They went after Donald Trump Jr. and Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, since election. They went after Roger Stone. All this got them a few indictments but not on colluding with Russians in the Campaign. Still, they continued undeterred.

Along came a phone call to Ukraine, so they turned it into an investigation after the Special Counsel failed to give them what they wanted. Then they translated that phone call into an impeachment trial – which, in reality, they had been working on since Trump came in.

Aka the kitchen sink impeachment. This took them up to reelection year. It failed in the Senate, but they could always keep that investigation open for future use. Keep on digging.

But then came the pandemic from China as the impeachment failed. So they politicized and used that pandemic to attack Trump. Forget the source as China; it was now the Trump pandemic. They got all the mileage they could out of that up to their DNC convention.

Ah, in comes a new factor, mail-in voting, perfect for politicizing and weaponizing against Trump. (I only hope that any future presidential prospects on the right are taking note of it all.) This is how they operate.

The projection election.

So now they have basically decided to question this election by saying Trump is trying to steal it. Trump is rigging the election. Democracy is being stolen. Only the undermining democracy is coming from the Democrats. It’s something they are skilled in and have been working at for about 20 years now. They didn’t have to unearth their plans with Obama because he won, but it was there for the use.

Actually, democracy has been under siege and attack since Trump won the 2016 election. Only this time they didn’t stop contesting it. They basically rolled in all these other processes and battles to it. But the point in it all is to undermine the democratic process and legitimate election in 2016.

The fight went on from 2016 right up until months before the next election, which is where we are. So it is an ongoing battle. And this should likely take us right into January.

I think it was January 6th when the results were all certified in the 2000 election. This time, they can even try to blow past that if they have to. They want to push everything right up to inauguration day. Then the fun starts.

But of course all that extra-curricular activity could be avoided by Trump losing on election day, or conceding at some point. Other than that you might say this election is never going to end until the end of Trump’s second term. It will always be in play. That is untl they get the result they want.

Democrats like to write fiction, they are just not very good on the endings.
