Donald Trump to declassify Spygate documents

January 15, 2021

We have been waiting for months for a report which was never to come. Of course I am talking about Durham’s Spygate investigation. Now, with just a few days left in his Presidency Donald Trump is finally going to do what he has been threatening to do for what seems like an eternity. He is going to declassify all the documents related to the Spygate scandal. Here is more:

With less than a week left in office, President Trump is declassifying a “massive trove” of FBI documents relating to Obamagate, including FBI documents “showing the Russia collusion story was leaked in the final weeks of the 2016 election in an effort to counteract Hillary Clinton’s email scandal,”

The documents could be released as early as Friday, and are said to include “FBI interviews and human source evaluation reports for two of the main informants in the Russia case, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and academic Stefan Halper.”

According to government officials who spoke with Just The News, the internal FBI and DOJ documents pending release “detail significant flaws in the investigation and provide a detailed timeline of when the FBI first realized the Steele dossier was problematic.”

One bombshell revelation contained in the documents is an admission by Christopher Steele, who was hired by Clinton’s campaign law firm to dig up dirt on Trump. He leaked information from his controversial dossier to the media, such as the false Russian collusion narrative, in the final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign to counter the Hillary Clinton email scandal, after former FBI Director James Comey had reopened the Clinton email investigation.

Now that it is too little, too late the soon to be ex-President is going to make good on this threat. Why bother at this point? It makes one wonder why he did not release it when it could have made a difference. What difference, at this point, does it matter…

MSNBC analyst says Trump supporters need to be ‘deprogrammed’

January 13, 2021

Over the last week or so we have seen social media giants pounce at the opportunity to silence people they do not agree with by banning leading conservative voices on their platforms, as well as to tighten their stranglehold on the market by crushing competition such as Parler. And we know it is only a matter of time before they come after blogs…

This, however, is just the beginning. They are not going to stop simply at silencing the opposition because that means there is always the chance the opposition can rise again. They want to completely eliminate the opposition so that there is only one official opinion and that would happen to be the State opinion.

That is precisely what one MSNBC analyst proposed when he declared that Trump supporters, who he reminded everybody just happen to be mostly white Republicans, needed to be “deprogrammed.” Here is what he said:

The reeducation camps cannot be too far away. “He loved Big Brother.”

New York nurse forced to throw away COVID-19 vaccine rather than giving it to the elderly

January 12, 2021

According to this story a New York nurse was forced to throw out COVID-19 vaccinations rather than use them on elderly people for fear of being in violation of Andrew Cuomo’s “eligibility guidelines. Here is more:

New York Times reports that in New York, the state is tossing out the coronavirus vaccine rather than give it to the “incorrect” people.

the New York Times had to report  (although it’s buried under 30-plus paragraphs) that a nurse eventually threw out seven vaccination doses after the health department told her clinic it could vaccinate only members of “eligible groups.”

On Tuesday, a health center in Harlem scheduled vaccination appointments with about 20 employees at a nearby community health center. When only 12 people showed up instead of the anticipated 20, this caused a problem. Each opened vial contains ten doses and you have six hours to uses all ten before they go bad

The nurse administering the vaccine didn’t know what to do with the eight extra doses, so she called her boss, who ordered her to go out and find people who were approved to receive these doses under the state’s eligibility requirements — a very narrow list that does not include the elderly living outside assisted living centers.

She hit a nursing home, a fire station, a woman’s shelter, and an urgent care center, but only found one person who qualified, so she threw the remaining seven doses in the trash. She had no choice.

Why only certain people are eligible for the vaccine in the first place is a question of its own, but why elderly people, who just happen to be in one of the highest risk groups, are not eligible is also dumbfounding. What does Andrew Cuomo, whose nursing home policy led to the death of thousands of senior citizens you might recall, have against the elderly? Does he consider them to be useless eaters?

It is simply outrageous that this genius has a COVID-19 vaccination policy in place that would force a nurse to throw away vaccinations before letting somebody he deems un-vaccine worth have it, especially when it is going to take months to distribute the vaccination to all those who want it.

And this is not the first time this has happened in New York, a hospital is facing fines for distributing the vaccine to people Andrew Cuomo did not deem worthy:

The [New York] state Health Department is investigating Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital for violating state guidelines by vaccinating New Rochelle school and city employees for COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] before they were eligible.

DOH spokesperson Jonah Bruno said in an email to The Journal News/lohud Friday morning that Montefiore New Rochelle is facing potential sanctions and penalties.

DOH also said that the hospital’s vaccine supply would be reallocated to the Westchester County Health Department. Later Friday, the county picked up 330 vaccine doses from Montefiore New Rochelle, County Executive George Latimer said

Watch your tongue or have it cut from your head
Save your life by keeping whispers unsaid

Bodies hangin’ in the streets to adore
Royal flames will carve a path in chaos
Bringing daylight to the night (night)
Death is riding into town with armor
They’ve come to take all your rights

Hail to the one
Kneel to the crown
Stand in the sun

Bill would give Andrew Cuomo power to detain people for suspected COVID-19

January 5, 2021

There is no doubt that Andrew Cuomo is loving his newly found COVID-19 emergency power and the glowing media coverage that comes with it and now the State legislature is set to hand him even more power. According to this story a bill has been introduced in New York which would allow Andrew Cuomo to lock people up if he thinks they pose a COVID-19 threat to the public. Here is more:

A bill introduced by a member of the New York State Assembly would amend the public health law, permitting the governor of the state to order the removal and/or detention of a person deemed to be a “suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease” who would “pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health.” The person in question then would be “detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor.”

A couple of scary things there besides the obvious affront to the Constitution, notice the terms “suspected” and “other appropriate facility?” You do not even have to have a confirmed case of COVID-19, Andrew Cuomo just has to say he thinks you do and he can have you locked up. And what is another “appropriate facility” to lock somebody up in over a medical issue if not a medical facility? Could it be a FEMA camp or something along those lines?

Here is some of the actual text of the bill in question:

The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows: Removal and detention of cases, contacts and carriers who are or may be a danger to public health; other orders. The provisions of this section shall be utilized in the event that the governor declares a state of health emergency due to an epidemic of any communicable disease. Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or  suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee, including, but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained.

Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee …

Removal and detention, does that sound like America to you? And he will have the power to hold a person up to 60 days without a court order. This is insane and the people of New York had better wake up quickly and realize COVID-19 is turning into Andrew Cuomo’s Reichstag fire, and it will not end in New York if he is allowed to get away with this.

House Democrat ends prayer with ‘amen and a-women’

January 4, 2021

Last week Nancy Pelosi took political correctness to a whole new level when she banned the use of “gendered terms” in the House so when I read this story earlier today I thought it was a joke, a spoof on Nancy Pelosi, but it turns out it is not.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, Democrat, offered the opening House prayer and after a prayer to a “monotheistic god, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths” (as if that were not politically correct enough) he ended his prayer with an “amen and a-woman.”

In a demonstration of political correctness run amok, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) offered the opening prayer of the 117th Congress on Sunday — ending the invocation with “amen and a-woman.”

“We ask [these things] in the name of the monotheistic god, Brahma, and god known by many names by many different faiths. Amen and a-woman,” Cleaver said to end the prayer.

We do not even need to go into the fact that “amen” has nothing to do with gender, but as long as this is the path America is on I would like to put aside the absurdity of this to ask a serious question. Shouldn’t Emanuel Cleaver be scolded by his fellow Democrats for using heteronormative language and for only including two genders…

Don’t wanna be an American idiot
Don’t want a nation under the new media
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind fuck America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn’t meant to be okay

Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia

Don’t want to be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information age of hysteria
It’s going out to idiot America

Nancy Pelosi bans gender terms in the House

January 2, 2021

The first order of business when the House convenes in January will be to adopt the rules under which will will operate and you will be happy to learn that Nancy Pelosi is working tirelessly to write up the rules so there will be no delay when the House convenes. Here is more:

“This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history,” said the House Committee on Rules in a statement.

How does she intend to make the House the most inclusive in history? By excluding certain terms which are now apparently offensive.

n clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, gendered terms, such as “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter” will be removed.

In their place, terms such as “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild” will be used, instead.

Apparently we can still call her Madam Speaker, she is not leading by example and she really loves that noble sounding title…

I have a feeling I am going to be saying this quite a bit in the years ahead, but it is good to see they have their priorities in order, especially with the people struggling due to the overreaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Donald Trump extends ban on H1-B visas

January 1, 2021

While various State Governors were busy shutting down the economy, forcing people into their homes, closing places of worship, banning the freedom to assemble and other Constitutional rights, and shuttering businesses which cost many Americans their livelihoods, means to support their families, their pride, and tested their patience, Donald Trump was working to offset some of the disastrous effects of the shutdowns.

One of the measures the President took was to temporarily ban H1-B visas to prioritize Americans when job openings did occur. That measure was set to expire at the end of 2020 because everybody in their right minds thought the clampdown would be over by this time, but last night Donald Trump extended the order through March.

The order was set to expire at the end of 2020, but Trump intervened to extend the order to continue prioritizing U.S. jobs for unemployed Americans instead of allowing businesses to import foreign visa workers in a struggling labor market.

The extension of the order reads:

The effects of COVID-19 on the United States labor market and on the health of American communities is a matter of ongoing national concern. The current number of new daily cases worldwide reported by the World Health Organization, for example, is higher than the comparable number present during June, and while therapeutics and vaccines are recently available for an increasing number of Americans, their effect on the labor market and community health has not yet been fully realized.

I would be willing to bet that one of the first orders of priority for the incoming President will be to reverse the visa ban. And I would be also willing to bet that, unlike all the successful legal challenges Donald Trump faced on every single order, any legal challenges will be thrown out of the courts because suddenly the President will have the power to reverse the previous President’s Executive Orders again.

FAA to allow small drones to fly over people and to fly at night

December 29, 2020

The FAA is about to finalize its rules allowing small drones to fly over people and to fly at night, here is more:

The FAA said its long-awaited rules for the drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, will address security concerns by requiring remote identification technology in most cases to enable their identification from the ground.

There are other, more complicated rules that allow for operations at night and over people for larger drones in some cases.

“The new rules make way for the further integration of drones into our airspace by addressing safety and security concerns,” FAA Administrator Steve Dickson said. “They get us closer to the day when we will more routinely see drone operations such as the delivery of packages.”

For at-night operations, the FAA said drones must be equipped with anti-collision lights. The final rules allow operations over moving vehicles in some circumstances.

We are supposed to feel better because we are being told we will be able to identify the drones from the ground but this has nothing to do with allowing Amazon to deliver packages via drone. The ultimate goal is to monitor our every move and that is just the excuse being used by the State to condition people to the idea that there will constantly be drones in the skies above us so that we do not question what is going on over our heads.
