Oregon Governor encourages people to report neighbors who have too many people over for Thanksgiving

November 23, 2020

Some Governors are enjoying their newly found COVID-19 emergency powers more than other Governors are. One Governor who has really let her power go to her head is Oregon Governor Kate Brown, who has decided that the plebeians are not allowed to have more than six people in their houses for Thanksgiving.

She is so upset that some people are planning on violating her decree that she is asking people to report their neighbors to the police if they have too many people in their homes. Here is more:

Days before Thanksgiving, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said she believes residents who know their neighbors are violating the most recent round of COVID-19 protocols, which includes capping the number of people allowed in your home at six, should call the police.

“This is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said in an interview Friday. “What do neighbors do [in that case]? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

Violations of this order could result in 30 days in jail and a $1,250 fine. 30 days in jail for having guests over on Thanksgiving! It is shocking what we are allowing to happen in our country and to think that there might be some people out there who will actually turn in their neighbors simply because they feel the neighbors are getting away with something they themselves did not have the courage to stand up and fight for is very troubling.

Despite what the despot in charge of Oregon says, this is nothing like reporting people for violating a noise ordinance where others are being disturbed, this is reporting people for what they are doing in the privacy of their own homes, which is nobody else’s business. This is actually more like Germany in the 1930s…

Ilhan Omar cuts ties with her husband’s political consulting firm after paying millions of dollars

November 18, 2020

It really is a twisted web Ilhan Omar and her former and current husbands have weaved throughout the 2018 and 2020 elections and now the story has taken another turn.

First, a little background: We first learned last February that there was an FEC complaint filed against Ilhan Omar accusing her of using her campaign to fund an extramarital affair she was having with a man who worked in her political consulting firm during the 2018 campaign. That was to the tune of around $500,000. After this news came to light her publicly embarrassed and disgraced husband asked for and was granted a divorce. This freed Ilhan Omar up to marry the man she was cheating on her husband with.

While her marriage to her ex-husband ended the payments to her new husband’s firm did not, this time she did not feel the need to be discreet with no extramarital affair to the tune and she paid her husband’s firm $3,000,000 during the 2020 campaign.

And that should bring us to today. Now that the campaign is done, and not wanting to give the impression of anything being not on the up and up, Ilhan Omar is cutting ties with her husband’s consulting firm.

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) campaign paid her husband’s consulting firm millions of dollars during the 2019-2020 election cycle, but Omar will be cutting off the firm going forward.

“So we’ve decided to terminate our contract with Tim and Will’s firm,” Omar’s campaign announced in an email to supporters, first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. “While many of our close supporters know these two well and have recommended we keep them on — I want to make sure that anybody who is supporting our campaign with their time or financial support feels there is no perceived issue with that support.”

Does anybody really believe she cares about how this relationship looks? If she did care she would have severed the relationship during the campaign when it could have become an issue and possibly cost her her reelection. Now that the campaign is over and a complaint has been filed she is simply covering herself just in case wrongdoing is found. She is trying to get ahead of the story.

Philadelphia bans all gatherings, in public and private

November 17, 2020

While some Governors are saying the right thing about new COVID-19 lockdowns, such as total lockdowns will not be needed this time around, we all know from experience that once a tyrant usurps power he or she is never going to give it back willingly. Just look at Joe Biden’s incoming COVID-19 advisor who wants to ban indoor dining, gyms, or private family gatherings if you want an idea of what we can expect.

Sure, they gave us back some of our circuses during the nicer weather for a little while for they knew they had to appease a restless people, but now that it is getting cold again the house arrests are going to begin again. I predicted, and this was not a hard prediction to make, that the next house arrest orders would come down sooner and end later and the third round would be the final gasps of our freedom as it starves for oxygen and withers away.

Here we are in November and they are making their moves again, Philadelphia has now banned all gatherings public and private. Here is more:

In response to rising COVID-19 cases in Philadelphia, the City and Department of Public Health have announced changes to restrictions on businesses, events and gatherings, and other activities to help flatten the epidemic curve, prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed, and reduce the number of COVID-19 deaths.

The new “Safer at Home” restrictions are effective November 20, 2020 through January 1, 2021. An extension of these restrictions and/or the implementation of additional restrictions is possible depending on trends in the spread of coronavirus in the city.

All indoor gatherings and events involving people from more than one household are prohibited, in public or private spaces. This includes private events such as weddings and showers, listed as “celebrations” in previous guidance, as well as funerals.

If you think this order is going to end on January 1st I can tell you right now you are wrong, we know from earlier this year the date is going to keep being delayed. And while this is only for Philadelphia you can rest assured it is going to spread throughout the Keystone state, in fact the Governor has already ordered his subjects to wear masks in their homes.

A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Where are the 3%ers when you need them?

Durham dropping Spygate investigation

November 16, 2020

We knew the fix was in when the results of the Department of Justice’s investigation into the outgoing Obama administration’s spying on the incoming Trump administration were delayed over and over again for months despite reports that it was almost complete.

Then we learned that the report was finished shortly before the election, and William Barr admitted there was illegal spying on the Trump administration, but the results of the report would not be made public until after the election. We knew at that point any hope we had of someday learning the truth were dashed.

Now, if this report is true, it is all but a formality because John Durham is dropping his Spygate investigation. Here is more:

The Federalist’s Sean Davis reports that the investigation into a treacherous spying operation on Donald Trump’s campaign and presidency is being dropped.

A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells @FDRLST: “Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”

After two years, and upon completion of the report, the investigation is going to be dropped and the results of the illegal spying will never be known. This was all a show from the beginning, designed to appease Trump supporters while accomplishing nothing, and we have seen this act before. It should come as no surprise to anybody who has been paying attention to the way the establishment protects itself against the plebeians time and time again.

Biden COVID advisor: no indoor dining, gyms, or private family gatherings

November 15, 2020

If you were one of the people who thought the COVID-19 lockdowns were going to go away once Donald Trump was out of office because you thought they were just being done to hurt the President’s reelection bid you were sadly mistaken. This is much bigger than that and now that the people (especially the III-ers who swore never to let this happen) have failed the first test the State has seen it can push the people into submission to even greater lengths than they dreamed of.

Now that the State has usurped this power, now that the State has seen it can take the freedom to gather, to protest, to worship, in other words to lead active lives, away from the people under the guise of safety, they are never going to willingly give it back and now we are preparing for round two.

Joe Biden is in the process of setting up a COVID-19 advisory board and one of the members on that board is in favor of shutting down basically all recreational activities, here is more:

During an interview aired on Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “WSJ at Large,” Biden COVID-19 Advisory Board member Dr. Celine Gounder stated that “places that we know are big contributors to transmission are indoor restaurants, bars, gyms, and also private social gatherings of friends and family in the home” “are really the places we need to target for closures” 

Gounder said that the advisory board’s “consensus” is that “the draconian lockdowns, shutdowns that we had in the spring,” are unneeded, and that increased knowledge means we can “be much more targeted about how we tighten up some of our measures. I think of it like a dimmer switch, whereas before we had an on and off light switch. So, we can dial up and dial down in a much more granular fashion. So, some of the places that we know are big contributors to transmission are indoor restaurants, bars, gyms, and also private social gatherings of friends and family in the home. So, those are really the places we need to target for closures while keeping other services, for example, schools that are — have not been major contributors to transmission, they’re not zero-risk, but they are much lower risk, and they’re an essential service. And so, we’re really prioritizing keeping schools, for example, open.”

The good news is they would like to keep the indoctrination centers schools open and apparently unlike in the Spring they would be kind enough to let Americans work so they can feed their families.

Of course what this does is it makes the American people serfs. In reality the State only cares about making sure we earn money so they can still pay taxes, when it comes to free time we will be free only to hang out in our homes and watch the television or play on the computer. Does that sound like freedom to you?

Sunday, November 15th open thread: ‘BANG!’

Here is AJR preforming “BANG!” Of course the plebeians are no longer allowed circuses so we have to settle for a video instead of a live performance.

Nancy Pelosi hosts large dinner for incoming House Democrats as Americans are being told to cancel Thanksgiving

November 13, 2020

Over the last few days prominent Democratic members of the Government, State officials, health officials, and the mainstream media have started “urging” Americans to basically cancel their Thanksgiving plans. So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that Nancy Pelosi was hosting a dinner for incoming House Democrats tonight.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is hosting a large dinner at the Capitol Building for new members Friday night, a move seen as hypocritical as Americans are being warned by government officials (and House Democrats!) to stay home and not hold family gatherings over the holidays because of concerns about spreading the COVID-19 China coronavirus. 

To be fair it should be mentioned the Republicans are also hosting their own dinner, however the Republicans have not been promoting the house arrest orders the Democrats have been in favor of for several months now.

But we have seen several examples of Democratic hypocrisy over the months with their own set of rules for the aristocracy. I have documented some examples of Democrats who are pushing house arrest orders not adhering to their own anti-social conditioning rules here. These examples range from not wearing a mask in public, to trying to cut in line to get a boat in the water, to covertly buying jewelry.

And of course this is not Nancy Pelosi’s first violation, I am sure you all remember when she decided to get her hair done not all that long ago during San Francisco’s lockdown so it is not surprising she would be once again flouting the rules she expects the plebeians to follow…

Ilhan Omar has funneled millions in campaign funds to her husband’s firm

November 11, 2020

Back in February of this year we learned that there was a campaign finance violation complaint issued against Ilhan Omar for funneling $500,000 in campaign money to fund her extramarital affair. Here is a little refresher on that story:

A complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Wednesday alleges freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) illegally used campaign money to help carry on an extramarital affair with a Democrat consultant whose firm she paid tens of thousands of dollars.

The Washington Free Beacon reported Saturday that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)’s congressional campaign paid over $500,000 in 2019 to a firm run by her alleged boyfriend, political consultant Timothy Mynett.

The Free Beacon, citing FEC campaign filings, noted that Omar’s campaign apparently paid the E Street Group $215,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019, bringing the total paid to the firm to $525,000 last year.

Fast forward a few months and a couple of things have changed with this story. The first change is that she has married Timothy Mynett so she is no longer funneling money to her boyfriend. The second change, however, is that she funneled nearly $3 million in campaign money to her husband’s firm this time around. Yes, this is the same firm he worked at while he was her boyfriend, here is more:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has paid nearly $2.8 million to her husband’s political consulting firm so far in the 2019-2020 election cycle, including nearly 70% of her third-quarter disbursements. 

Federal Election Commission data shows that Omar’s campaign sent $1.6 million to E Street Group LLC, which is owned by her husband Tim Mynett, from the start of 2019 through Jul. 22, 2020. After that, she reported an additional $1.1 million in the third quarter and $27,000 in the following weeks. That $1.1 million constituted nearly 70% of the $1.6 million that Omar’s campaign spent that quarter.

I guess when it comes to her corruption some things do change, but mostly the stay the same…

Biden transition team in contact with foreign leaders

November 10, 2020

A former member of Barack Obama’s national security team, Ben Rhodes, came out yesterday and admitted that Joe Biden’s transition team is already in contact with foreign leaders. Here is more:

“The Trump people seem to be talking like they have some agency here. We’re going to have the pageantry already of the president-elect announcing his advisory board. He’s going to start announcing cabinet secretaries. The center of political gravity in this country and the world is shifting to Joe Biden. Foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden, talking about the agenda they’re going to pursue January 20th,” said Rhodes.

It seems quite normal that while preparing for a new administration to come in that foreign leaders would call to congratulate the President-elect or maybe talk a little policy with some of his advisers so that they would have a little understanding about what to expect with new leadership, but of course this is what led to the whole Russian investigation into the Trump transition team in the first place.

The left accused Michael Flynn of violating the LOGAN Act for doing precisely the same thing with Russia. And it should also be remembered that it was none other than Joe Biden who suggested Michael Flynn should be investigated for LOGAN Act violations…
