As Patrick Henry Would Say: 'I Smell A Rat': The Recent Midterm Elections

undefined

On the heels of what happened with the Biden presidential election where we are supposed to believe that a candidate who had absolutely no enthusiastic Democrat voter base whatsoever during the primaries was the most popular president elect EVER and became the president with the most votes in ALL of US history, you'll pardon me that I'm highly suspicious of the outcome of these latest midterm state elections from last week, especially with this new thing--those many mail-in ballots--and so much vote-counting happening beyond the deadline. Very weird and suspect. 

I'm thinking of candidates like Blake Masters and, in particular, his race in Arizona where the last votes to be counted were in strong districts for Masters but the mail-in ballots from there were predominantly in his opponent's favor. And all kinds of strange, underhanded shananigans are reported or purported to have occurred in many of the other races, too, involving votes lost, not counted or not countable. This has not been to the benefit of Republican candidates who were in a tight race or leading. And of course, then there's those notorious mail-in ballots which were brought in with covid as the excuse and which continued to come in and be counted in some races a week after the election day. Very, VERY fishy. 

I accept whoever wins, Republican or Democrat, but it has to be a free and FAIR election. Otherwise, an election process of the people is meaningless and non-existent, and the US has become what I would coin “a first-world banana republic”, in effect. If this is indeed the case, then it should make people very angry and upset. 

No wonder “the establishment” and their puppet-masters “the deep state” don't want to let someone like Blake Masters into the game. They know most of what the government does is a scam on the people and they don't want him to win. They don't want him to call them out on it and try to end the spending spree boondgoggle that enriches them.

House Republicans Introduce Resolution to Audit Ukraine Aid

undefined

A group of House Republicans introduced a bill Thursday to audit the funds that Congress has approved to spend on the war in Ukraine.

The effort is being led by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and supported by a group of Republicans that have been critical of US aid to Ukraine. The resolution’s cosponsors include Reps. Thomas Massie (KY), Matt Gaetz (FL), Barry Moore (AL), Andrew Clyde (GA), and Cory Mills, a representative-elect from Florida.

According to The Hill, Greene introduced the bill as a privileged resolution, meaning it will be sent to the relevant committee, which will have 14 business days to either reject the legislation or approve it for a vote on the House floor.

If the bill is not discussed by the committee within 14 days, Greene has the option to force a House vote. Greene said she’s prepared to reintroduce the bill in the next Congress when Republicans have a majority in the House.

“I’ll introduce this resolution again, but I’ll also be calling for a full audit. We voted ‘no’ to send money over there, but we’re also going to audit what’s happening in Ukraine,” Greene said.

They Will Lock You Down Again

undefined

The lords of lockdown barely escaped their worst possible fate, namely that the topic would become the national and international source of scandal that it should be. And let’s add the vaccine mandates here too: even if such had been morally justified, which they were not, there is absolutely no practical reason for them at all. 

To have imposed both of these within the course of one year – with zero evidence that they achieved anything for public health and vast amounts of unfolding evidence that they ruined life quality for countless millions – qualifies as a scandal for the ages. It was in the US but also in nearly every country in the world but a few. 

Might that have huge political implications? One would suppose so. And yet today it appears that truth and justice are further off than ever. The most passionate of the anti-lockdown governors – those who never locked down or opened earlier than the rest of the country – won on their record. Most of the rest joined the entire political establishment in pretending that all of this is a non-issue. Tragically, this tactic seems to have worked better than it should have. 

Meanwhile, a few points to consider:

The US government, through the Transportation Safety Administration, has signed yet another order extending the ban on unvaccinated international visitors until January 8, 2023. This means that no person who has managed to refuse the shot is allowed to come to the US for any reason. This is 30% of the world’s population, banned even to enter the US on their own dime. Something like this would have been inconceivably illiberal three years ago, and been a source of enormous controversy and outrage. Today, the extension hardly made the news.

Elements of Donald Trump’s Presidential Agenda Revealed in His Candidacy Announcement Speech

undefined

Speaking Tuesday before an audience of supporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Donald Trump presented an hour-long speech announcing that he is running in the 2024 general election to regain the United States presidency. Trump used the speech to provide an introduction to aspects of the agenda he says he will pursue as president.

The first half of Trump’s speech was largely consumed with talk about other matters including criticism of President Joe Biden, promotion of Trump’s past presidency, discussion of the 2022 midterm election, predictions of particular goals to be accomplished due to undefined actions he would pursue as president, and rhetorical flourishes.

Then, in the second half of the speech, Trump addressed what he termed “just the beginning of our national greatness agenda” that he would seek to implement should he assume the presidency in after the 2024 election.

Below are Trump’s comments from the speech outlining aspects of that presidential or “national greatness” agenda.

Was FTX A Democrat Money-Laundering Scheme?

One thing you will not see is the mainstream media looking into failed crypto-exchange/ponzi scheme FTX. Why? It's founder, Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) was the second largest Democrat Party donor after George Soros. SBF's parents were part of the financial deep state. And, to top it all, FTX was involved in sending millions of dollars to Ukraine. If this were a Republican scheme, the NYT and WaPo would be all over it, but because it was to the benefit of the Democrats and Ukraine, it remains just a...conspiracy theory.

Did Ukraine Try To Lie Us Into WWIII?

After a Ukrainian S-300 missile struck Polish territory - killing two civilians - the Ukrainian president immediately claimed that Russia attacked a NATO member country and that NATO must act without hesitation against Russia. In other words, launch WWIII. Was he lying? Meanwhile, a lame duck Congress is expected to vote another possibly $50 billion for the bottomless Ukraine money pit. Will Republicans finally stand up?

Techno-Authoritarianism Is Here to Stay: China and the Deep State Have Joined Forces

undefined

The votes are in.

No matter who runs for office, no matter who controls the White House, Senate or the House of Representatives now or in the future, “we the people” have already lost.

We have lost because the future of this nation is being forged beyond the reach of our laws, elections and borders by techno-authoritarian powers with no regard for individuality, privacy or freedom.

The fate of America is being made in China, our role model for all things dystopian.

An economic and political powerhouse that owns more of America’s debt than any other country and is buying up American businesses across the spectrum, China is a vicious totalitarian regime that routinely employs censorship, surveillance, and brutal police state tactics to intimidate its populace, maintain its power, and expand the largesse of its corporate elite.

Where China goes, the United States eventually follows. This way lies outright tyranny.

Censorship. China’s censorship machine is straight out of Orwell’s 1984 with government agencies and corporations working together to limit the populace’s freedom of expression. Government agencies routinely harass and intimidate anyone seen as non-compliant. Activists are frequently penalized for gathering in public places and charged criminally with “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.” China has also gone to great lengths to muzzle journalists reporting on corruption or human rights abuses.

Ukraine Tried To Trick NATO Into Starting World War III After It Accidentally Bombed Poland

undefined

NATO and Russia briefly stood on the brink of World War III Tuesday evening after Ukraine accidentally bombed Poland. The incident happened as its forces were trying to intercept incoming Russian missiles during what’s been described as Moscow’s fiercest attack of its special operation thus far that some speculated coincided with the failure of rumored ceasefire talks. Instead of shooting down the Russian missile, Kiev’s S-300 malfunctioned and ended up dropping into Poland, where it killed two people.

The Ukrainian leadership was well aware of what happened but decided to propagate the most dangerous conspiracy theory in history in an attempt to literally spark World War III. Zelensky lied to the world by describing his forces’ accidental bombing of Poland as “a Russian missile strike on collective security” and telling NATO that “We need to act.” His Foreign Minister in turn gaslit by claiming that all allegations that his side was responsible for this incident are nothing but “Russian propaganda”.

To his credit, Biden told the press in response to a question about whether Russia was responsible that “There is preliminary information that contests that. It is unlikely in the lines of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia, but we’ll see.” In the same article reporting his words, the Associated Press also cited three unnamed US officials who said “preliminary assessments suggested the missile was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian missile”.

undefined

War criminal George W Bush and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will be appearing at an event next week at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, in partnership with US government-funded narrative management operations Freedom House and National Endowment for Democracy. The goal of the presentation will reportedly be to address the completely fictional and imaginary concern that congressional Republicans won’t continue supporting US proxy war efforts in Ukraine.

Which Party Won The Elections? The War Party, Of Course!

Writing in Responsible Statecraft today, Connor Echols effectively makes the depressing case that no matter which party controls Congress, it's always the war party in the driver's seat. Also today: So...the FBI had infiltrated the "Jan. 6th insurrectionist" groups months before Jan. 6th? What did they know and when did they know it? Also...what happened to the antiwar left?
