The Information War continues

On January 6th Pence showed his real colours. All Trump and Guiliani were asking for was a ten day delay so that the evidence could the audited and the states might have another chance to uncertify one of their sets of dual electors. The people’s real choice remains locked away in ballots and voting machines that observers were blocked from seeing and no one has been allowed to fully audit in the last two months. Pence could have chosen that option. If he was on Trump’s side, he would have told Trump what he would do in advance, instead of leaving Trump to “hope” the day before. As Patrick Byrne said “Pence… Not going to do anything, but in a way that he hopes makes him viable in 2024. Boy, is the joke on him.”

Patrick Byrne summed up the moment:  Do not go violent. We must maintain the moral high ground. … I condem all violence in DC tonight. That’s not us and it is how we lose.

President Trump has been HORRIBLY served by his advisors and remains so.

Last night we watched election data flow real-time from Georgia to Islamabad and China. They take a blank ballot, check live voter rolls overseas, pick one to attribute the vote to, and accept it.

Unlike Biden and Harris, Donald Trump immediately denounced the violence in Washington DC and called for peace. So Twitter promptly blocked him for 12 hours. That’s long enough for the legacy media to paint him as a dangerous threat, and to twist the arm of world leaders to denounce “something”.

Donald J. Trump I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!

During a Constitutional Crisis, The President is being censored.

Real Mark Latham “So unelected tech-nerds in Silicon Valley now have more power than the elected President of the United States, in openly censoring Trump. How hollow does all the ‘protecting our democracy’ talk sound now?”

Graham Young: Twitter: We demand you call on your supporters to go home, but we won’t allow you to broadcast it on our platform. Obviously not a neutral public square.

Appallingly, a woman, Ashli Babbitt, was shot dead by police. She was a 14 year Air Force Veteran and was described as being “unarmed”. Three others have died in the chaos, though their deaths are being described as “medical emergencies”.

Jack Posobiec: Can’t remember anyone calling for the anti-Kavanaugh protesters to be shot when they stormed the Capitol and hundreds were arrested. Thank God!

Release the Bodycam!

Greg Kelly : Wow. Last summer they RIOTED AND PULLED DOWN STATUES in front off the WHITE HOUSE and they put it in a NIKE commercial and OBAMA said how “proud” he was. Today—we have people WALKING abound a building (the Capitol) and and the media are call it CHAOS.

Good Guys deplore the violence and anarchy

Was this caused by a few bad eggs, or was it deliberate sabotage and a false flag event? It’s impossible to say at the moment, but in the past Antifa has instructed members to disguise themselves and create havoc. It’s a known pattern, and an obvious way to damage the President. Which legacy media journalist is even investigating that possibility?

@SidneyPowell:This is a tragic day for the Rule of Law and the #Republic If this isn’t corrected quickly, it will be the greatest failure in American history It’s already an affront to all who sacrificed everywhere for our freedom & to protect our Constitution It is wrong.  …  It was a set up.

Antifa calling for disguise and violence

Antifa calling for disguise and violence for November 4th.

There are also claims that the man with horns was photographed at a BLM event. Is this the same man? The tattoos appear identical. He is supposedly Jake Angeli, “well known” QAnon guy and being called a “Trump supporter”. Though merely attending a BLM event does not make him a BLM supporter. UPDATE: I hear but cant confirm that the sign he was holding showed he was not supporting the BLM.

Man in hood with horns seen at BLM rally

Jon Rapport asks if this was a successful false flag event:

He points out how useful it would be to the anti-Trump crew:

I’ve read and seen reports of Antifa members (from Philadelphia and Tempe) being inside the Capitol building. A close-up photo of one of the protestor’s wrists shows a hammer and sickle tattoo. There is a claim that Antifa members were bused into DC a day before the rally.

Obviously, if the assault on the Capitol building was a false flag, all the blame cascading down on Trumpers paves the way for Biden and his handlers to carry out even more draconian measures on the American people, under the rubric of National Security—piled on top of the COVID lockdowns.

To be effective collective media amnesia is needed. Who remembers all the violent Antifa protests, storming of government offices, and that Biden and Harris did so little (nothing?) to stop that:

For the next 20 years, media will play up Wednesday, January 6, 2021, as the dark day America almost broke apart. You can bet a few dozen production companies are already editing footage for “stunning, award-winning” documentaries.

Democrats are feeling a burst of confidence that Trump’s career as a politician is over—since he will forever be linked to “The Insurrection of January 6.”

In their eyes, this is far better than a physical assassination.

On the night of February 27, 1933, a fire was set in the German Reichstag, the national parliament. It burned a significant portion of the structure. Many historians state Hitler’s people set that fire—which at the time was successfully blamed on his main political opponent, the Communist Party. The tactic allowed Hitler to consolidate his final needed piece of national power.

Alongside the endorsement and support of IG Farben, the biggest pharmaceutical and chemical cartel in the world, the Reichstag false flag gave Hitler control over the fate of Germany.

False flags do work.

          Has Trump conceded? Sure Biden is President elect now but a lot could happen. Hunter’s laptop alone makes Joe inelegible. Trump has other strings in his bow.
          I cannot understand how a few (possibly plants) can make vote cheating democratic! 10 days is a long time to hide this obvious fraud.
          A large majority of Americans know of the fraud. Biden proved it by not cooperating with investigations. Trump always cooperated. The difference is Trump had nothingto hide.

        T,

        You need to move on from DEM V REP, you are trapped in an illusion designed by the very people we (as opposed to you are fighting). There is no such thing as Democrats and republicans any more (why do some people take so long to see the light?).

        As you ask for a history lesson i will give you one, you ready mate? sit down and buckle up here it comes.

        The first 20 year charter of the (what is now known as the FED reserve or central bank) began in 1791 and expired in 1811 just before the civil war began (nudge nudge wink wink)

        The second charter (1813 to 1836) supported by President John Quincy Adams circa 1812, Gen Andrew Jackson challenged the central bank, Jackson is quoted as saying:

        “Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves.”

        So Jackson (D) elected POTUS did not renew the second fed reserve charter, the utopian world of world banks has failed once again.

        The federal reserve banking system (third fed reserve charter) began in 1913 and has slowly but surely destroyed society since then.

        Up until now, dud Democrat Presidents didn’t have automatic 100% mainstream media backing the way Biden does. In keeping with your line of reasoning I could ask you to point to one occasion through this campaign where the MSM ran a negative story about Biden (or a positive one about Trump for that matter). I’ve never seen the media so utterly polarised as now. There is obviously something going on behind the scenes and the Left were never much good at subtlety anyway.

        There’s a first time for everything and the writing is on the wall that the Democrats want single party rule and will do anything to achieve that, morality, ethics and the law be damned. They don’t want the voice of reason to temper their insane policy goals. Unfortunately, TDS has driven many otherwise intelligent people to become useful idiots to their malfeasance.

        Single party rule will bring the country down in the same way that it has turned California into a hell hole. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

He wants to run another extension lead to Bayswater.

          Speaking of Bayswater; there used be very large signs either side along the highway with a photo of water vapour rising from the cooling towers and a sign that read “Water Vapour”.

    If this is really a false flag, why did the real protesters not stop them? But there is nothing in the videos that show anyone condemning the assault on the building, the open contempt displayed against the police. If this had been a BLM protest, none of this would have been allowed to occur.

        More to the point where were the national guard, and the state police, after all Trump and done all he could to whip them all up, and violence was widely anticipated, building boarded up etc.

        For example 40 protesters gathered for a ‘Force the Vote’ demonstration, there were 50 police to make sure they behaved.

        Look to your own, they did it all by themselves.

    Here’s a comment I posted on two other sites:

    Robby Soave: “Indeed, what happened at the Capitol was no less a riot than any of the window-smashing and church-burning that occurred in the summer ….”

    On the contrary, it WAS “less a riot,” AFAIK:
    Fewer windows were smashed
    No fire-setting was attempted,
    Fewer objects were hurled at the cops
    Cops were less spat upon and kicked.
    Bystanders and passing cars were not attacked.
    Shots weren’t fired (by protesters).

    It was predictable that rioting would occur if the grievances of the election-protesters were not given a fair hearing. It was very unstatesmanlike to deny them their—so to speak—day in court, especially in light of their large numbers and high passion. It was very unwise to give the Deplorables a reason to consider the state illegitimate. That our “clerisy” thinks it can carry on in this fashion, dismissing objectors with the back of its hand and telling them to Move On, is an indication of its profound immaturity—and its out-of-touchness. (It seems to be living in the Fifties, when the public trusted mainstream institutions to have its interests at heart and not to be actively evil.)

    The clerisy’s arguments that objectors are trying to “overturn the results of the election” assumes what it tries to prove—i.e., it begs the question, Were the so-called “results of the election” really the results of the election?

    Rudy Guiliani said recently, “It’s perfectly reasonable and fair for us to ask for 10 days. Who hides evidence? Criminals hide evidence…. If we’re wrong we look like fools.”

    If the accept-the-results Consensus is correct in thinking that Trump’s claims are preposterous or toxic, it should air them before the nation and expose their foolishness. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, it’s been said. So let’s let it do its work and we’ll be one happy family again—or at least a happier one.

    Choir-member Lynn Cheney disagrees. She just said that reviewing the results of voting would set a bad precedent. On the contrary, voting-results-review is a badly needed reform. No close election’s results should be accepted until a review-panel has heard and evaluated the losers’ objections to the way it was conducted. This would discourage voting fraud, increase the legitimacy of the winners, and diminish social divisiveness. The current set-up, whereby precincts’ vote-counts are rubber-stamped by the local secretary of state, incentivizes dishonesty and creates a festering boil of resentment and alienation that impairs and discredits democracy.

    PS: I may have been unjust to our clerisy. It probably feels that it would be dangerous to allow an Electoral Commission to possibly find that cheating gave the election to Biden, as it would result in massive rioting by Biden’s supporters. So it thinks it’s being statesmanlike. But if Congress can be cowed by the threat of violence, that means that force rules, not consent, and we therefore ought to abandon the attempt to govern the nation by voting, and resort to gladiatorial contests instead. Or adopt massive decentralization.

      “By January 13, 2020, Dr. Fauci’s NIAID/NIH, Bill Gates’s CEPI, and Moderna already had a COVID-19 vaccine finalized.”

      That would provide Fauci and other bigshot medical bureaucrats and editorial gatekepers with whom he was in contact with motivation to marginalize HCQ & ivermectin.

    Unlike all other Presidents, Trump has never been invited to Bohemian Grove. He is not one of the corrupt Elites that meet there.

    On the other hand, Pence may have gone there and this is likely when he changed to the Dark Side.

      The Establishment appear to have sold thier souls to the Devil.

      I felt ill listening to the media make excuses for what appears to be rampant election fraud and flipping the truth 180 degrees.

      The Establishment also seem to be hell bent picking a nuclear war with Russia, not China ( coz a lot of Establishment pollues have too much money tied up in China ), so heads up….

      Russia is also a very Christian nation, and the Establishment Cabal seem to be sore losers as Russia wont play thier game….

      So are the Republicants/RepubliCrats soon history. As soon as Trump declares a MAGA Party or America First Party, the Rs are history.

      Trump gained 94% or Republican votes in the primaries, and more votes than anyone ever running for a second term — both being unbroken positive metrics for victory.

      Obviously, the current billionaire founders of the GOP (nickname for Republicans, “Grand Old Party” since…1852?), dictated their surrender to the enemy fascists. Their globalist interests cast them as The People’s Enemy.

      Given now that these traitors are sell outs, the leaders and the prominent are now our enemy! And given that these interests and the Deep State cabal reaches states too, who will bother to vote for them? Not I!

      And those who might will be shamed, harassed, or beaten up! Count on it.

Meritocracy only works if you are “one of them” and the rest of us are, depending on your POV, either the Mortar in the wall -Nay, monument, or the Skulls in it. – and DON’T tell me that even here meritocracy determines the position in the monument, of your skull !!

    BREAKING: President Trump Issues Statement Responding to Electoral Certification

    President Donald Trump has issued a statement responding to the Electoral Certification through White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino — as he is currently suspended from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
    President Trump said that while he “totally disagrees” with the results, there will be a “peaceful transition of power.”

    He did not concede.

    The statement reads as follows:

    “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

    Dan Bongino Slams Media And Democrats For Double Standard After Capitol Hill Chaos (VIDEO)

    By now, you have probably seen pictures and videos of what unfolded in Washington, DC on Wednesday. Trump supporters breached the Capitol building in a protest that got a little out of control at times.

    Some people on the left and even some on the right are clutching their pearls as if no one has ever seen such a thing before. They have apparently forgotten that the left burned and looted American cities for months while Democrats and the media stood by calling them ‘mostly peaceful’ protesters.

    Dan Bongino appeared on the Sean Hannity show last night and gave everyone a reminder about the violent actions of the left after the Republican convention and the Antifa attacks on a Portland courthouse for over 100 nights.

    He slammed Democrats and the media over the fact that we have two different sets of rules in this country. One for the left, and another for everyone else.

    Twitter, run by Jack Dorsey, announced on Wednesday night following scenes of chaos at the U.S. Capitol:

    “As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy. This means that the account of @realDonaldTrump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these Tweets. If the Tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked.”

    Chinese-Partnered Companies Control Over 75% Of Voting Machines In 2020 Elections

    What you’re about to read will infuriate you whether you are a Republican, Democrat, or Independent voter in the US. CD Media is providing direct evidence that the Chinese-government-partnered companies control over 75% of the voting machines used in the 2020 election.

    This isn’t one of the windy roads through financial service or investment companies type of articles. Halfway through it, when the main Chinese partner is linked to, you’ll be given the opportunity to hit the “support the party” button from one of the many examples of tight cooperation they’ve had with Beijing since 1993.

    This is primary source evidence from the companies involved and includes instructions that make it easy to set up vote tampering.

    If you are a Congressman or Senator and still support the 2020 election results without question, take an honest moment and hit that button. The evidence trail of Chinese intervention in US elections goes as far back as 2005.

    The following is from a Letter from the North Carolina State Board of Electors to ES&S, Clear Ballot Group, and Hart InterCivic. You’re about to find out why they refuse to answer questions like these.

    Facebook, YouTube and Twitter Delete President Trump Tweets and Videos Urging for Calm and Peace – Control Platforms Using Alinsky Tactics

    After a day of conflict and agitation within Washington DC, some of which was agitated by Antifa and far-left provocateurs (will come out in the days ahead), President Trump urged calm and peace in a Twitter message and video. However, the social media platforms did not like that President Trump continued to challenge the Biden election win:

    “We had an election that was stolen from us,” the President said. You have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order,” Trump said. “We don’t want anybody hurt.” “I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace,” adding: “We love you. You’re very special.” In what can be considered a planned approach Twitter then blocked and suspended President Trump’s account:

    Twitter went one-step further in their efforts to be the arbiters of public discourse and said they will continue to monitor the “situation in real time, including examining activity on the ground and statements made off Twitter. We will keep the public informed, including if further escalation in our enforcement approach is necessary.”

    Twitter also threatened to permanently suspend Donald Trump’s account:

    Trump supporters in 2020/2021 painted as domestic terrorists, using the same process as Tea Party supporters were labeled as racists and terrorists in 2010/2011. The Alinsky method is to “isolate, ridicule and marginalize.”

    The goal of the entire media and political network is to attempt to fracture the MAGA coalition and ensure that Donald Trump cannot carry a massive support group into the future. The Big Club is threatened by the united community of patriots.

    Steady your resolve.

    Remember when lefties stormed into and occupied a Senate office building in 2018 and the Wisconsin State Capitol in 2011?

    Mobs breaking into and occupying government buildings are always bad, but when leftists are responsible, a memory hole soon opens and engulfs the media’s recollections. True conservatives support law and order and peaceful protest for redress of grievances, a sacred constitutional right. Rights bring with them responsibilities, and strict adherence to the law is a fundamental obligation of those who speak out in disapproval.

    The US Capitol is a sacred temple of our democratic republic, and ought to be viewed as such, not a target for violence. Period. But a little historical perspective is in order in understanding how mob violence directed at official buildings is no monopoly of conservatives or Trump supporters.

    Just over 2 years ago, the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill was occupied by protestors seeking to block the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh. See this video from MSNBC:

    Although it doesn’t look at all good for Trump, now that Congress has officially certified Biden as the winner, there are still 2 weeks to go. Trump can still turn things around provided he can prove election fraud took place. How he does that is not clear at this stage. Either that or he has nothing and it was all a bluff on his part and he will ride into the sunset. Time will tell.

      Have you looked at the information about the vote processing equipment?

      As laid out in OldOzzie’s link at https://joannenova.com.au/2021/01/the-information-war-continues/#comment-2394650 it’s all commercial-in-confidence proprietary software largely owned in the PRC.

      It beggars belief that the republic’s franchise goes through black boxes the source code for which no agency has the authority to examine and still it’s considered a secure way to do elections.

      It makes one’s head hurt thinking how to remedy this situation which has inexorably arisen with the development of information technology, best suited to the management of real time totalisator/lottery/election tabulation tasks.

      Whether the allegations of vote manipulations can even be tested is moot; why should I surrender my machine for examination in a free land &c…

      A simple solution is for the federal government to own all the election kit and tender for the open source software which runs on it, a solution which would be a decade or so in the realization and cause immense grief to the Diebold community heirs not to mention China.

    Were leftist provocateurs leading the way into the Capitol?

    First, to state the obvious, there is no question that Trump supporters criminally entered the Capitol and behaved abominably. All who breached the inadequate protective perimeter must be prosecuted to the full measure of the law. Throw the book at them!

    But there are grounds for suspicion that provocateurs, anxious to discredit Trump, his supporters, conservatives, and those who question the integrity of the presidential vote may have been the point of the spear in violently attacking the Capitol. Rowan Scarborough reports in the Washington Times:

    Trump supporters say that antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

    A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia antifa members to two men inside the Senate.

    The source provided the photo match to The Times.

    Why did the Capitol Police fail to protect the Capitol?

    January 6th’s events are being seized on as a game-changer, leading to calls to invoke the 25th Amendment, calls to impeach and remove President Trump, and discrediting Trump, his supporters, and conservatism. It has distracted attention from issues around the legitimacy of voting procedures in several key states, and guaranteed the Electoral College vote just before 4 AM that ratified Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’s inauguration as president and vice president.

    Applying the classic legal question “cui bono?” (“who benefits?”), it is clear that Democrats, anti-Trump establishment Republicans, the leftist media, and TDS sufferers all are victorious.

    Disturbing video available (for now) on Twitter shows Capitol Police allowing demonstrators to enter the Capitol grounds.

    Perhaps what happened yesterday wasn’t so surprising

    Condoning escalating leftist resistance and violence for four years and then telling conservatives to shut up was a recipe for disaster.

    I know that, for four years, the left has never stopped doing everything in its power to destroy a duly elected president. It’s battled him on the streets, on the media, in schools, colleges, and universities, and in Congress. Its rage and disdain have been open and aggressive.

    The media have never spoken an honest word about Trump and have used their 24-hour platform to slander him and everything he’s done, while at the same time attacking those who support him. Congress repeatedly tried to impeach him (it’s still trying), including the risible attempt over the Ukraine phone call. Academia has used cancel culture to silence any opposition.

    Georgia had even more vanishing votes than I realized

    There are a lot of theories floating around about election fraud. I should know because I’ve written about some of them. Generally, proving affirmative fraud is difficult to impossible because Democrats hold all the information. The one indicator that there may be election fraud that’s impossible to disguise is vanishing votes. More of them turned up in the wee hours of Tuesday night. Additionally, a mathematically inclined friend walked me through other ways in which those numbers don’t add up.

    Briefly, when it comes to vanishing votes, votes should always be additive. You can get fewer votes than your opponent, but no voter walks in and casts a negative vote for you (taking away a vote) or a “transfer vote” (transferring your vote to your opponent). When the numbers start walking backward, something is amiss.

    In my last post about vanishing votes in Georgia, I wrote about 5,000 vanishing Perdue votes. I woke up Wednesday to discover that according to live video fees on CNN, Perdue lost 32,400 votes. Much as I hate to rely on YouTube (we conservatives really need to start uploading to Rumble), here’s the evidence:

    This is essentially the day we have all been dreading. The day when the USA finally falls to the dark forces of socialist extremism and where freedom begins it’s final slide towards compliance to the extreme green ideology, which will ultimately capture the rest of the free world.

    Of course this change is not new from a historical perspective, but it is new for most people living in western democracies that have only ever known of peace, freedom and prosperity. As an educated and (now formally) advanced culture with an understanding of history, we do know what comes next, which is censorship and control, with government by fear and stealth. The transition will be violent and there will be many deaths and political prisoners taken, before compliance to the new green and anti-white socialist ideology is achieved.

    With the senate now locked-in, the Democrats will probably remove Biden at the earliest opportunity and Harris will lead the change towards the great reset, with climate change worship and white hatred being the main pillars of their new society, as already evidenced by their orchestrated mass BLM riots and GND doctrine. The US currency will become the first casualty, as socialism will never understand why printing money and handing it out to people as a gift always leads to absolute poverty. When the poverty hits hard they will falsely blame white people, capitalism and democracy as the cause of the new despair, and the brainwashing and compliance measures will ensure that very few people will dare question the authority. Welcome to extreme green/anti-white socialism !!!

    The unfortunate part of the extreme socialism experience known from history is that it’s basically impossible to revert back to the free democracy that it replaced. It’s basically a one way ticket to a living hell. For sparsely populated resource rich countries like Australia, the global impact could be worse because we will be an obvious target for China, with no global freedom police on the scene to deter takeovers.

    The Morning Briefing: 2021 Miracle—Media Finally Finds a Mob It Doesn’t Like

    The Mainstream Media and the Rage Mob Finally Meet

    Happy Thursday, my dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I explained yesterday that I am sincere when I say that. Just because yesterday was a fetid pile of awful doesn’t mean that we should give up on today.

    This is going to be a different kind of Briefing today. As yesterday’s news cycle was dominated by one story, there aren’t nearly the number of links today that I would normally post.

    The first thing I noticed while scanning the news was that virtually every conservative commenting on the situation was condemning the violence. Immediately. That stood in stark contrast to high-ranking Democrats and their flying monkeys in the mainstream media spending all last summer telling us that things were peaceful while we were staring at burning buildings.

    This is how conservatives addressed the situation:

    A little consistency is all I’m looking for here.

    The day then devolved into perhaps the worst hot take day on Twitter ever, and that’s saying a lot. The tendency to try and score political points in times like this is tedious, pathetic, and deserving of endless scorn.

    Figure out a way to be upset with those who broke the law yesterday without having to leg-hump Ilhan Omar and her impeachment fever dream just so you can get a “Good boy!” from The New York Times during a tense news cycle.

    I talked to several of my hardcore conservative friends yesterday. We were all in agreement that we both condemned the violence and the mainstream Beltway Republicans who were all too eager to jump into bed with the Dems because they thought that denouncing Trump would give them some political capital in the coming months.

    Conservatives like me have been radicalized by the Democrats and media pathologically lying about us for so long. Now we know that mainstream Republicans are going to try and marginalize us.

    Here’s the thing though: there are a lot more of us than either side realizes.

    So keep not getting why Trump got elected in the first place, people. Keep blaming factors that had nothing to do with his popularity. Keep selling out, Republicans. It just makes our long game easier.

    We’re not going away.

    Also, Mitt Romney is garbage.

    If Only the Left and Right Had Come Together to Condemn Violence When It Counted

    The cities burned, police stations with cops still inside were torched, stores were looted, lasers blinded police officers, Molotov cocktails were served up in riots nearly every night of the spring, summer, and fall. Courthouses and federal buildings were assaulted.

    The media and Democrats called the rioters “mostly peaceful.”

    District attorneys set rioters free, Kamala Harris sent bail money, and the only ones complaining about it were … us and Trump.

    If only the nation would have come together – the Left joining the Right – to denounce the violence when it happened, I believe we would not have seen the disgraceful and outrageous scenes of Wednesday when Trump-supporting protesters shape-shifted into rioters and assaulted the nation’s Capitol Building.

    lets get real here the two options for the USA are as follows:

    1, Accept you are a slave to the DS and grease up for the pineapples coming down the pipe, great reset/Agenda 21/whatever , or
    2, Pick up your semi auto and take control.

    I appreciated this is not the approach suggested by the owner of this blog and others but the reality is the war is lost, if trump had any cards to play he would have played them before Pence stabbed him in the back, his plan was to force Pence to decertify the vote but it failed, there is no more recourse to the law. the biggest failure here for me is SCOTUS i never thought they would be compromised, Pence yes but SCOTUS!

    The only option left is for states to secede from the union or if you lie a civil war, watch for foreign actors to take control, thier plan for US take over is working brilliantly thanks to simpletons like we see on this site and elsewhere.

    For 6 decades I’ve been fooled into believing I lived in a place governed by democratic principles and rule of law. That the Constitution was important. There may have been a time when this was true but that must have been a long time ago.

    I now move into a new period in my existence where the effort of voting is no longer necessary. It does not matter if I vote. The Evil I have opposed all my life always prevails in the end. I must now prepare to live under the oppression that is imminent. The Evil controls all that I perceive; I see rot, I smell rot, I taste rot, I hear rot. I suppose for a while I can avoid feeling rot but soon enough that too will win.

    Orwell should not have have published his warning. I’m certain Evil only used it as a guide. It did not help us to avoid what he saw coming it perhaps hastened it.

    Now how to best live out my time. Must I be silent to avoid retribution? Or is it too late? Perhaps I have to become them in order to not be seen? What about my children? They are adults but…….. everything I have taught them was not valid. I was wrong.

    Greatest Country in the world? MY ASS!

    Today I’m going to call my 97 Y.O. mother and chew her out for bearing me here. I’d have been better off learning how to live in a third world country! I’d at least have some knowledge of how to survive corruption. To thrive in a lawless, arbitrary world. I used to marvel at places like Mexico where bribes are more effective than laws. How do people live like that? Then I find out it is no different here. Certain people are above laws, above rules. The situation today is no better than any time in history and very possibly worse than ever.

    What a fool I’ve been, what precious time I’ve wasted.

      The Founders I believed were brilliant.  They planned for and built a foundation that would be effective against all possible attacks;  levels of checks and balances, powers granted to States and excluded from the Federal, Rights identified to be possessed by the individual.  They assumed that elections would be honest, fair and lawful.  That they would be openly conducted and openly reviewed.  They assumed that the governing election laws would be followed.  The Founders were wrong.  They allowed a fatal flaw  they had lapse of judgement.  It has been too easy for corruption to bend, distort and ignore election laws, rules and processes. 
       
      Now here we stand with a new “leader” placed into the highest office in the land because illegal votes were counted.  Winning Party mouthpieces have the audacity to claim that the losing party is now guilty of ruining the democratic process for even objecting!  My friends, the process was ruined at the moment a single illegal vote was counted.  It was pounded into the dust when all the checks and balances were ignored at nearly every level by Partisan forces.  The ground up dust of democracy was blown away when gutless members of now useless shrines refused to bother with the risk and inconvenience of a reasonable inquiry.  We are left with nothing, not even the dust is left of democracy. 

      Laughably, talking heads that for months heretofore couldn’t possibly object to “peaceful protests” where buildings burned and people died.  Suddenly these same mouthpieces find a protest in DC to call a riot?  Where for months you never heard the word sedition when obviously seditious acts were committed, today we hear that mere supporters of a clean election are guilty of sedition and maybe even treason! 
      Woe is us, woe is US.  There is no more United.  It will be a free-fall to the bottom of the swamp.

    Patrick Byrne may have the evidence, but he is naive to think it will get a fair hearing.
    The Treasury Dept has been corrupt since 1913.
    The Just-US Dept and FBI has been corrupt at least since 1963 (probably longer.)
    There hasn’t been a real investigation into wrongdoing in the US government in 100 years or more.
    The only hope for individual liberty in the world today is peaceful secession by many red states.
    That is unlikely because a civil war is more profitable for those who control the Federal governments.
    Such a crushing of peaceful seekers of freedom by force would be praised by every “western” government in the world.
    There is no room in the world for any haven of freedom to give hope to the serfs.

    “As for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

    Oh dear a bunch of blog posts reporting hopeful and doctored tweets and scuttle but.

    Unfortunately many of the perps have been identified and they are veterans of Trump events and of fascist marches. They are racists and thugs and there is no escaping it with made up stories echoing in various chambers.

    On closer inspection, the symbol is from the video game series Dishonored.

    This is your hammer and sickle.
