Iran Protests: Video Of Security Forces Molesting Female Protester Outrages Iranians

Sun, 10/16/2022 - 18:00

Where is the backlash from the Squad, Hollywood, and America’s “feminist” groups against this horror? Nowhere to be found. All while the American mainstream media provides little coverage of Iran’s protests. The Biden Administration wants to give this brutal and murderous regime nukes and billions of dollars in sanctions relief. Awful. Watch below.

Video Of Security Forces Molesting Female Protester Outrages Iranians

By Iran Intl, Oct 15, 2022

Amid nationwide antigovernment protests across Iran, a video of security forces molesting a woman while arresting her has enraged Iranians all over the world.

This viral video that has infuriated Iranian social media users shows agents of the Islamic Republic’s security forces touching and grabbing the private parts of a female protester during the crackdown on people in capital Tehran.

Following the global reactions, the chief of the cyberspace headquarters of Basij paramilitary forces, Moslem Mo’in, said the video has been released by dissidents with the aim of inciting people’s sentiments.

Although the sexual harassment is obvious in the video, he called the assault “nonsense” aimed at paralyzing by the police forces and creating a defense shield for women protesters.

The woman, whose identity remains unknown, was then released as other agents were laughing at her.

Fars news agency, affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard, quoted a police source as saying that “some of such encounters are inevitable during riots.”

FIRE THEM ALL: Massachusetts School Districts Prepare For Illegal Teachers’ Strikes That Threaten School Closures Again

Sun, 10/16/2022 - 18:00

Government employees — state, local, and federal — do not have a right to strike under the federal law. Fire them all. Pull a Reagan. What an opportunity to purge the public schools of these groomers, communists, indoctrinators and child abusers.

Democrats hate your children. And the their teacher’s union is the gravest threat to our kids.

Massachusetts school districts prepare for illegal teachers’ strikes that threaten school closures again

By: Leon Wolf, The Blaze, October 16, 2022:

Teachers unions in Malden and Haverhill in Massachusetts have voted to authorize teachers’ strikes that will begin on Monday if their demands are not met, in spite of the fact that strikes by public sector employees are illegal under Massachusetts law.

The strikes threaten to once again impact students whose learning needs have been severely negatively impacted by teacher-driven school closures during the pandemic. This time, teachers are threatening to refuse to return to work Monday over things like their wages, staffing levels, and class sizes.

Deb Gesualdo, president of the Malden teachers union, defended the vote for an illegal strike, telling WBUR, “Nobody wants to go on strike. Nobody wants to take an illegal action. But we feel that we are backed into a corner and have to. It’s very serious.”

By “backed into a corner,” Gesauldo means, apparently, that teachers have felt “disrespected” by the offers they have received ……

Thousands of Government Officials Own and Trade Stock in Companies They Regulate

Sun, 10/16/2022 - 16:00

The US government is rotten, rotten to its core. Martha Stewart went to jail for far less.

This is insider trading on steroids. Every single official should be indicted. This is very definition of corruption and depraved abuse of the public trust.

STOCK Act isn’t preventing government officials from benefiting from insider trading

Thousands of federal officials own stock in regulated companies: WSJ

Pentagon officials owned stock in aerospace, defense companies, report says

By Federal Times staff, Oct 11, 2022

WASHINGTON — Thousands of federal government officials across the executive branch reported owning or trading stocks that stood to rise or fall with decisions made by their agencies, a Wall Street Journal investigation found.

More than 2,600 officials at agencies from the Commerce Department to the Treasury Department, during both Republican and Democratic administrations, disclosed stock investments in companies that were lobbying their agencies for favorable policies. That amounts to more than one in five senior federal employees across 50 federal agencies reviewed by the Journal, is said in an article published Oct. 11.

An official at the Environmental Protection Agency reported purchases of oil and gas stocks. The Food and Drug Administration improperly let an official own dozens of food and drug stocks on its “no-buy” list. A Defense Department official bought stock in a company before it won new business from the Pentagon, according to the report.

Title 18, section 208 of the U.S. Code, a criminal statute, prohibits employees in the executive branch from participating in a government matter that will have a direct and predictable effect on their financial interests, Federal Times has reported.

Such conflict-of-interests can include insider trading, a hot-button issue that the U.S. House of Representatives has grappled with in seeking to reform the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act.

The STOCK Act, by some experts’ estimation, is the closest the government has come thus far in targeting stock trading by members of Congress. Then-President Barack Obama signed it into law in 2012, amending the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and making explicit that the prohibition against insider trading would apply to members.

The Journal said it analyzed more than 31,000 financial-disclosure forms for about 12,000 senior career employees, political staff and presidential appointees. The review spans 2016 through 2021 and includes data on about 850,000 financial assets and more than 315,000 trades in stocks, bonds and funds by the officials, their spouses or children.

While the Ethics in Government Act, passed on the heels of the Watergate scandal, mandated that senior employees of the executive branch submit public financial disclosures, the vast majority aren’t available online or readily accessible. The review amounts to the most comprehensive analysis of investments held by executive-branch officials, who have wide but largely unseen influence over public policy, the Journal said.

Among the findings:

— While the government was ramping up scrutiny of big technology companies, more than 1,800 federal officials reported owning or trading at least one of four major tech stocks: Meta Platforms’s Facebook, Alphabet’s Google, Apple and Amazon.com.

— Dozens of officials at agencies including the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department reported trading stock in companies shortly before their departments announced enforcement actions.

— More than 200 senior EPA officials, nearly one in three, reported investments in companies that were lobbying the agency.

— At the Defense Department, officials in the office of the secretary reported collectively owning between $1.2 million and $3.4 million of stock in aerospace and defense companies on average each year examined by the Journal. Some held stock in Chinese companies while the U.S. was considering blacklisting the companies.

Not every member of the executive branch is a public filer. Most that are hold high-level leadership positions. In addition to new entrant, annual, and termination reports, public filers must also report transactions of certain securities as they occur so that ethics officials can evaluate potential red flags.

FBI Ordered Russia-Hoax Informant Igor Danchenko to DELETE All Evidence from His Phone of His Role in Their Attempted Coup of President Trump

Sun, 10/16/2022 - 15:00

“Our country is in dire peril when those who are supposed to enforce the law are the ones so egregiously breaking the law,” one commenter so succinctly put it.

How the Steele Dossier Was Created

FBI Ordered Informant Igor Danchenko to Erase All Evidence from His Phone of His Role in Their Attempted Coup of President Trump

By Jim Hoft, October 15, 2022:

In June 2020 TGP broke the story that the Primary Sub-Source (PSS) for the Steele dossier was Igor Danchenko – the individual behind most of the made-up lies in the Steele dossier.

Danchenko was American-based not Russian-based.

Danchenko is the one individual those looking into the Trump–Russia collusion fraud wanted to identify – the PSS – the individual who was behind the material amount of Steele dossier lies. At least two sources on the Internet had come to this conclusion by Sunday night.

The Deep State kept Danchenko’s name hidden for nearly four years.

Danchenko’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the case against their client.

Buried inside the filing are several statements that are absolutely devastating for the Stasi-FBI.

It's difficult to overstate how bad this footnote from Danchenko's latest filing is for the FBI. On top of that, Danchenko gave them emails that proved that the entire dossier was a hoax. That was in Jan 2017. Before Flynn was fired. Before Comey went to Congress. Before Mueller. pic.twitter.com/qIWft2km8I

— Hans Mahncke (@HansMahncke) September 3, 2022

n September we learned that the FBI made Igor Danchenko a classified human source in March 2017 after the Trump-Russia Hillary Clinton-FBI-created hoax was in full swing.

President Trump had been in office less than two months and the FBI had been targeting him for over a year already. They made up the bogus Russia collusion story knowing the media would run with it and Democrat voters would eat it up. It is one of the greatest lies and political scandals in our nation’s history.

The Trump-Russia scandal was a Deep State coup attempt against President Trump the disruptor.

Via Techno Fog.

Danchenko was on the FBI payroll as a confidential human source (CHS) from March 2017 through October 2020.

The purposes of making Danchenko a CHS should be quite clear. The Crossfire Hurricane investigation was plagued with problems from the outset. The reasons for opening the investigation were bunk. Those problems continued as the investigation went on, with claims of Trump/Russia collusion proven unverified or outright false. (Thus the targeting of Flynn for a Logan Act violation.)

Those problems continued with the Carter Page FISA applications, first submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in October 2016, and which relied substantially on the Steele Dossiers (aka Steele Reports). The FISA applications were renewed three times – more on that later. Each application had its own problems, from FBI lawyers lying about Carter Page to the Court being generally misled.

Realizing its own misconduct, the FBI made Danchenko a paid CHS in March 2017 – just before the third FISA warrant was submitted in April 2017. This would allow Comey’s FBI to work directly with Danchenko in support of its counter-intelligence investigation against President Trump.

Danchenko being a CHS also served another purpose: it protected the Bureau and the Mueller Special Counsel from revealing their “sources and methods.” How do you hide misconduct? Bury the witness.

And on Friday October 14, 2022, we learned that the FBI ordered Igor Danchenko to scrub his phones and erase all incriminating evidence of their plot to overthrow the sitting president.

And still the Democrats are pushing this poison. They hate you. Start fighting back.

50% increase in miscarriages; 50% decrease in fertility after COVID vax

But Eric Topol says there is “no evidence” that the vaccine causes harm. That’s reassuring. So Eric, if it isn’t the vaccine, what IS causing it? He blocked me. Can you ask him?

However, Dr. Eric Topol, who is an expert on the COVID vaccine, says this isn’t caused by the vaccine

There is zero evidence that vaccines cause infertility in men (or women) but a new report about Covid and live virus found in testicles: "SARS-CoV-2 infects, replicates, elevates angiotensin II and activates immune cells in human testes"https://t.co/rKKFNsngGe pic.twitter.com/TORkGHDpD9

— Eric Topol (@EricTopol) February 8, 2022

I’d love to know what IS causing it, but Dr. Topol blocked all of my accounts on Twitter and Twitter has banned me for life twice, so I am not allowed to ask that question.

It cannot be COVID since the problem only surfaced after the vaccines rolled out. So his explanation just doesn’t fit the observation.

So maybe you can ask Eric for me?

Slavery In The Arab States

Sun, 10/16/2022 - 13:00

Mitchell Bard reminds us here that for all the outrage expressed over putative Israeli violations of Palestinian human rights, there is no such outrage over the prevalence of slavery, or of near-slave conditions for domestic workers, in the Arab countries.

The hypocrisy of those purporting to believe in social justice and ranting about white privilege and colonialism is well documented. The antisemitic obsession of those who see Israel as the world’s only violator of human rights and declare their fealty to the Palestinians is especially galling given their lack of interest in the abuses committed by Palestinian leaders against their own people, the persecution of Palestinians in Lebanon, and the torture and murder of Palestinians by the Syrian regime. Even more remarkable is the silence of human rights advocates regarding slavery in the Arab world.

The subject received brief notoriety in the 1980s with the publication of John Laffin’s book The Arabs as Master Slavers (1982) and Murray Gordon’s Slavery in the Arab World (1989). Both traced the history of slavery in the region. Laffin noted that “the slave trade was first begun in Africa by the Arabs; they were the procurers and suppliers” and that “from the earliest period of the history of Islam in Africa, slaves were frequently mentioned as tribute or taxes paid to political superiors.”

Laffin quotes The Economist from 1956: “Saudi Arabia seems to be the most guilty as far as ‘classical’ slavery is concerned.” The Saudis were the last to abolish slavery in Arabia – in 1962. Nevertheless, Laffin noted that “by the 1960s slavery in Arabia was flourishing as never before.”

The 600,000 slaves who were in Saudi Arabia when the Kingdom agreed, in 1962, to do away with slavery, were not suddenly set free. Many of them were no longer called slaves, but their treatment remained exactly the same as before. Even into the 1980s, one could see ads in Saudi newspapers offering to “trade a hardworking Indian girl” for a “late-model American car.” The status of foreign workers in Saudi Arabia even now, especially that of female domestic workers, is deeply disturbing and akin to a kind of slavery. Like all foreign workers in Saudi Arabia, their passports are held by their employers, who have the power either to keep them from leaving their employ, or to expel them from the country at a moment’s notice. These workers are supposed to be entitled, according to the latest regulations intended to “improve working conditions,” to “nine hours of rest” a day, which leaves a potential 15 hours for work, six days a week. Some of these workers are sexually abused by their masters, with no recourse. Conditions have been so bad that several countries, including Uganda, Ethiopia, and the Philippines, have prohibited their nationals from going to work in Saudi Arabia until working conditions in the Kingdom have improved.

Fast forward to the present.

A report by the International Labour Organization (ILO) was just released that found an estimated 50 million people living in modern slavery conditions in 2021, including 3.3 million children. Of these, 28 million are trapped in forced labor and 22 million in forced marriage.

Over 10% of them[the 50 million slaves] were in the Arab states, which had the highest rates of forced labor (5.3 per thousand people) and forced marriage (4.9 per thousand people).

According to the Global Slavery Index (GSI), more than 500,000 people are slaves in Arab countries.

Shravan Raghavan, the editor of Statecraft, a publication focused on South Asia, explained, “Workers are brought in under what is known as the kafala system, wherein they essentially become the property of employers.” These immigrants usually have no idea what they are getting into.

Under the terms of the kafala system,” he notes, “workers cannot quit their job or leave the country without their sponsor’s permission, and those same sponsors withhold their passports and salaries and even demand payment to authorize their release.”

Many are abused:

Workers can be paid as little as 80 cents an hour and be forced to eat leftovers and be on call throughout the day with no time off. They are also subjected to intense physical, verbal and sexual abuse, harassment and intimidation. Law enforcement agencies offer little respite, and generally send battle-weary workers right back to their abusers when they dare to raise an alarm.

All this reminds us that in Islam it is deemed licit to hold slaves. Muhammad himself bought, sold, and owned slaves, which has made the practice permissible for Muslims ever since, for Muhammad was the Perfect Man (al-insan al-kamil) and Model of Conduct (uswa hasana).

It also reminds us that Muslims are taught in the Qur’an that while they are the “best of peoples” (3:110), Infidels are the “most vile of created beings.” (98:6) Not all Muslims accept, much less act on, that view. But fanatical Muslims feel that they can treat non-Muslims with as much cruelty as they wish. They are, after all, Infidels.

Pennsylvania to Ignore Supreme Court’s Recent Order Regarding Illegal Mail-in Ballots

Sat, 10/15/2022 - 20:00

The Supreme Court tossed out a lower court ruling that had permitted undated mail-in ballots to be counted against the law in Pennsylvania — but the Commonwealth’s secretary of state has other ideas. Immediately after the court’s decision was made public, Pennsylvania’s Acting Secretary of State Leigh M. Chapman released a statement saying the court’s ruling does not affect the decision of the 3rd Circuit “in any way.”

“Today’s order from the U.S. Supreme Court vacating the Third Circuit’s decision on mootness grounds was not based on the merits of the issue and does not affect the prior decision of Commonwealth Court in any way,” Chapman wrote. “It provides no justification for counties to exclude ballots based on a minor omission, and we expect that counties will continue to comply with their obligation to count all legal votes.”

This directive by Chapman will only result in more chaos and confusion for voters, poll workers, and election clerks, plus likely inconsistencies between how different localities handle erroneous ballots. Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballots for this election cycle already contain wording that reads “today’s date required” and clear instructions for voters to “sign and date” their ballots.

The Federalist:

This kind of blatant flouting of election law is nothing new in Pennsylvania. Back during the 2020 election, then-Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar issued guidance that did not comport with Pennsylvania’s election code.

As a result of Chapman’s statement, some of the Commonwealth’s 67 counties will follow her directive while others will follow state law and clear ballot instructions, meaning the inconsistencies and irregularities that plagued the 2020 election show no signs of stopping.

Pennsylvania to ignore Supreme Court’s recent order regarding mail-in ballots

RSBN News, October 13, 2022:

Earlier this week, the United States Supreme Court issued an order in the case of Migliori v. Lehigh County Board of Elections, which could impact future elections.

In the order, the court vacated the judgment of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and ordered the appellate court to dismiss the case as moot. As reported by Fox News, the appellate court ruled that ballots in undated envelopes must be counted, that a handwritten date had no bearing on a voter’s eligibility to vote, and that invalidating such undated ballots would violate voters’ civil rights.

The Supreme Court’s order in Migliori’s case invalidated the appellate court’s decision and prevented other states in the circuit from relying on the decision as precedent.

However, the federal case is not the only case of this nature in Pennsylvania. In a similar case (McCormick v. Chapman), filed in Pennsylvania state court, the state court also granted McCormick’s request to count undated mail-in ballots.

In light of the various opinions, on Sept. 26, 2022, the Pennsylvania Department of State released updated guidance which stated, “Any ballot-return envelope that is undated or dated with an incorrect date but that has been timely received by the county shall be included in the pre-canvass and canvass.”

Despite the Supreme Court’s recent order in Migliori, acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman recently announced that Pennsylvania election officials should continue counting undated envelopes.

As reported by Fox News, Chapman stated:

“Every county is expected to include undated ballots in their official returns for the Nov. 8 election, consistent with the Department of State’s guidance. That guidance followed the most recent ruling of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court holding that both Pennsylvania and federal law prohibit excluding legal votes because the voter omitted an irrelevant date on the ballot return envelope.”

“Today’s order from the U.S. Supreme Court vacating the Third Circuit’s decision on mootness grounds was not based on the merits of the issue and does not affect the prior decision of Commonwealth Court in any way. It provides no justification for counties to exclude ballots based on a minor omission, and we expect that counties will continue to comply with their obligation to count all legal votes.”

In essence, the crux of Chapman’s argument appears to be that the Supreme Court’s opinion does not impact the decision rendered by the Pennsylvania state court(s) allowing undated ballots to be counted. Generally speaking, Supreme Court decisions are only binding on state courts if they involve the Constitution, constitutional issues, or federal law.

Here, while the issue, in part, involves the interpretation and/or applicability of Pennsylvania law, federal law is also possibly involved. As Democracy Docket recently noted, “Within the span of a week, a federal circuit court and a state appellate court both concluded that not counting undated mail-in ballots would violate the Materiality Provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.”

For now, it does not appear that Chapman intends to follow the Supreme Court’s recent order. Moreover, the Constitution does not provide the Supreme Court with a mechanism to enforce its orders, as this is up to the other branches of government. However, so long as the court’s order remains in place, any Pennsylvania official who defies the order could possibly end up in federal court.

BRILLIANT! NFL Head Coach SMACKS DOWN Woke Leftist Reporters When Asked About His Blackness

Sat, 10/15/2022 - 19:00

Buccaneers coach Todd Bowles spoke to the media recently about the game, with one reporter asking what it meant for him to coach against another black head coach in Mike Tomlin.

Bowles responded by saying he didn’t think it was a “big deal,” and that he and Tomlin “don’t look at color when [they] coach against each other.”Bowles continued, “I don’t think it’s a big deal as far as us coaching each other, I think it’s normal.”

But another reporter — who appears to be ESPN’s Jenna Laine, a white woman — continued to press the issue with him and even condescendingly says, “You understand that representation matters, too, right?”

Then, she implies that all Black people have the same background, saying that when young, aspiring Black coaches and players “see someone who looks like them, maybe grew up like them, that has to mean something.”

Bowles not only wasn’t having it, he fired right back.

“When you say ‘you guys,’ and ‘look like them’ and ‘grew up like them,’” Bowles said, “it means that we’re oddballs to begin with.”

Todd Bowles on coaching against Mike Tomlin this Sunday: "I don't think it's a big deal…we don't look at color."

MUST SEE: Buccaneers Head Coach Todd Bowles Asked About His Blackness by Woke Liberal Reporters – Delivers Humiliating Response

By Margaret Flavin, Gateway, Published October 13, 2022:

Todd Bowles, head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, spoke to the press about the Bucs upcoming game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bowles has an extensive football career by any measure. He was signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent player in 1986 and played in the league for seven years, including Washington’s Super Bowl XXII winning team.

His coaching career spans both college and the NFL and includes:

1997 Morehouse College- Defensive coordinator & secondary coach
1998-1999 Grambling State- Defensive coordinator & secondary coach
2000 New York Jets-Secondary coach
2001-2003 Cleveland Browns-Secondary–nickel package coach
2004 Cleveland Browns-Secondary coach
2005–2007 Dallas Cowboys-Secondary coach
2008-2011 Miami Dolphins-Assistant head coach & secondary coach
2011 Miami Dolphins- Interim head coach & secondary coach
2012 Philadelphia Eagles-Secondary coach
2012 Philadelphia Eagles-Interim defensive coordinator & secondary coach
2013-2014 Arizona Cardinals-Defensive coordinator
2015-2018 New York Jets-Head Coach
2019-2021 Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Defensive coordinator
2022 Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Head Coach

But woke reporters wanted to talk about race.

Bowles was asked about his relationship with Steelers coach Tomlin and being one of four Black head coaches in the NFL, “You and Mike Tomlin are two of the few Black head coaches in the league. I wonder what your relationship is like with him.”

Bowles responded to the woke question perfectly. “I have a very good relationship with Tomlin. We don’t look at what color we are when we coach against each other. We just know each other. I have a lot of very good white friends that coach in this league as well. I don’t think it’s a big deal as far as us coaching against each other. I think it’s normal.”

Bowles added, “We coach ball.  We don’t look at color.”

Helpful white ESPN reporter Jenna Laine race-splained to Bowles about the significance of his race saying, “But you also understand that representation matters too, right? And that when aspiring coaches or even football players they see you guys, you know they see someone who looks like them, that grew up like them, that has to mean something.”

The exasperation on Bowles face during the lecture on race said everything and Bowles’ response was fire. “Well, when you say ‘see you guys’ and look like them and grew up like them, means that we are oddballs to begin with. And I think the minute you guys stop making a big deal about it, everybody else will.”

Ouch.

Get Ready: Democrats’ Blaming Future Bidenflation On A GOP Congress

Sat, 10/15/2022 - 18:00

I previously wrote this a Geller Report post, “The Democrats have planned, for sometime, for the Republicans to take the house. They think they will keep the Senate. They actually need the Republicans to take the house so that they can distract, deflect and spend the next two years blaming the catastrophic problems they caused on the Republicans. Can’t you see it? Two years of Democrats and their running dogs in the enemedia endlessly pounding the GOP house for inflation, crime, war, impending nuclear holocaust, migrant surges, etc. etc. Paving the way for an easy win in 2024……”

And here we go:

Get Ready For Democrats’ New Strategy: Blaming Future Bidenflation On A GOP Congress

With the 2022 midterms steadily approaching, leftists throughout the political and corporate media spheres are already preparing to blame any and all future rising inflation on Republicans should Democrats lose control of Congress.

By: Shawn Fleetwood, The Federalist, October 14, 2022:

During an event in Los Angeles on Thursday, President Joe Biden began to lay the groundwork for this new strategy. While attempting to talk up a previously passed infrastructure package, the Democrat president claimed that “if Republicans win” control of Congress next month, “inflation is going to get worse. It’s that simple.”

“Folks, you know, Republicans are going to make you — working, middle-class folks — pay higher taxes. … And the biggest corporations — and, by the way, in every single piece of legislation I’ve gotten passed with the help of the people here, we have not raised the tax on anybody making less than 400,000 bucks a year one penny,” Biden asserted, despite a report from the Congressional Budget Office analyzing the effects of the Democrats’ wrongly termed “Inflation Reduction Act” showing otherwise.

According to a new report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, yearly inflation ending in September is up to 8.2 percent, while “[c]ore inflation, which factors out energy and food prices, rose to 6.6%, the highest mark since 1982.” Since Biden took office in January of last year, the prices of everyday commodities, from food to gasoline and energy, have all skyrocketed to levels not seen in decades.

Despite such cataclysmically awful numbers, Biden and company have repeatedly tried to downplay the economic effect inflation has had on average Americans. During a “60 Minutes” interview last month, for instance, the president proclaimed that the month-to-month inflation rate was “up just an inch, hardly at all.”

Since his inauguration, Biden, along with a Democrat-controlled Congress, has wasted no time in spending trillions of dollars to fund left-wing pet projects that have done nothing to address the needs of the American people. In addition to the roughly $740 billion deceptively named “Inflation Reduction Act,” Democrats also passed the $1.9 trillion “American Rescue Plan” during the early months of the Biden administration.

Taking their messaging cues from Biden, the country’s corporate media and political elites throughout Washington, D.C., have adopted the administration’s new tactic and are forecasting an even worse economy under a GOP-controlled Congress. During a recent segment on MSNBC, network host Chris Hayes said he feels “confident in predicting” that “if Republicans win control of one or both houses of Congress [this fall], they will do everything in their power to sabotage the economy to best set them up to retake the White House in 2024.”

Democratic National Committee spokesman Ammar Moussa echoed similar sentiments in remarks provided to the Washington Examiner, claiming that Republicans have “repeatedly made clear that they want to gut Social Security and Medicare and even increase prescription drug costs for millions of Americans.”

“Time and time again, Republicans have shown they will side with special interests to raise costs on American families, while President Biden and Democrats work tirelessly to lower costs. The stakes of this fall’s elections could not be higher,” he said.

Jew Hatred Report: More than 350 Antisemitic Incidents Occurred on US College Campuses Last School Year

Sat, 10/15/2022 - 17:00

It’s far more than 350 but these attacks are from the left so its celebrated. Smells like pre-war Germany.

Pro-jihadic activists are terrorizing Jewish students on college campuses. Where is the condemnation from the celebrities who attacked Kanye West? Nowhere. That is because condemning the Islamic Jew hatred will get you banned from the Democrat Party.

The Israeli embassy is a ten-minute drive from the GW campus.

But these bigots didn’t go there to protest. They went to Hillel, the Jewish student center.

Because it’s never actually about Israel. It’s about the Jews. https://t.co/sy4yYSPGZA

DESPOTISM ON THE MARCH: Elon Musk is Under Federal Investigation For ‘His Conduct’ in His Bid To Acquire Twitter, Docs Show

Fri, 10/14/2022 - 21:00

No one is safe from Democrat fascism, no matter how important or distinguished.

BREAKING NEWS: Elon Musk is under federal investigation for ‘his conduct’ in attempted Twitter takeover, court documents reveal – as the social media giant asks for access to documents he’s turned over to authorities

  • According to an October 6 court filing, federal authorities are investigating the Tesla CEO for his behavior pertaining to his bid to buy Twitter
  • The popular online platform is seeking access to documents Musk has apparently turned over to authorities
  • Since earlier this year, the SEC has been probing Musk’s initial disclosure of his major stake in Twitter

By Sophie Mann For Dailymail.Com, 14 October 2022

Elon Musk is being investigated by United States federal authorities in relation to his bid to acquire Twitter.

Lawyers working for the online platform claimed in a court filing unsealed in Delaware on Thursday that Musk is currently under investigation by federal authorities for his conduct as it pertains to his buyout of the popular social media company.

‘Elon Musk is presently under investigation by federal authorities for his conduct in connection with the acquisition of Twitter, wrote attorneys for Potter Anderson Corroon LLP in a filing dated October 6.

[…]

According to a Bloomberg report, Twitter is also attempting to gain access to communications between Musk and the Federal Trade Commission.

Earlier in 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission sent an inquiry to Musk about the initial disclosure of his major stake in Twitter. The letter was sent in April and the SEC released it in May.

In early April, Musk disclosed he had acquired a more than 9% stake in Twitter. He did so one week later than regulations allow. He also used a filing generally reserved only for passive investors.

Go Woke Go Broke: DC Comics Cancels Gay Superman Due to Lack of Sales

Fri, 10/14/2022 - 17:00

As if being a parent wasn’t tough enough, now you must shield your children from the world, 24/7. The left’s depraved obsession with sexualizing children is the death knell of the American era. Sick.

National Review: DC Comics is canceling Superman: Son of Kal-El, a book series it launched last year about a bisexual Superman, amid poor sales. The series’ 18th issue, due out in December, will be its final installment. The series saw a 17-year-old Jonathan Kent, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, take on a number of social issues including climate change, school shootings, and the rescue of “undocumented migrants.” The series even featured face coverings in an effort to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19 in fiction (National Review). Washington Examiner: The announcement was made over the weekend during New York Comic Con. According to DC, the 18th issue will be the series’ last. “Superman: Son of Kal-El will end with issue #18, but fans of Jon Kent do not need to worry! Writer Tom Taylor and artist Clayton Henry will be telling new Jon Kent stories in Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent,” said the company in a press release (Washington Examiner).

Doctor Who Sexually Mutilates Kids Goes On Campaign Trail For North Carolina Democrat

Perfect. The Democrat party in a nutshell.

Doctor Who Mutilates Kids Goes On Campaign Trail For North Carolina Democrat

By: Sophia Corso, October 13, 2022:

North Carolina Democrat and Senate candidate Cheri Beasley’s latest booster is a doctor who performs mutilating surgeries on gender-confused kids.

On Monday, Dr. Jenna Beckham spoke at a press conference hosted by the North Carolina Democratic Party titled, “Doctors & Nurses Against Budd,” expressing her disdain for Beasley’s opponent, Republican congressman and Senate candidate Ted Budd. Budd, who has acknowledged that “life begins at conception” and described himself as “pro-life,” co-sponsored a federal bill protecting life in the womb after 15 weeks.

Claiming that abortion restrictions are “dangerous,” Beckham urged voters to elect Beasley this November “to allow physicians and other healthcare providers to do their jobs” — even when those “jobs” include violently dismembering babies in utero and mutilating minors as Beckham does.

According to the Campaign for Southern Equality’s “Trans-Affirming Health & Legal Service Providers” directory, Beckham “provides gender-affirming surgical services including minimally invasive hysterectomies.” Additionally, the OB-GYN “will assist individuals under the age of 18 with their medical transition” — in other words, provide hormones or mutilative surgeries with irreversible effects to children — and “offers pelvic exams for trans men.”

Trump ‘loves the idea of testifying’ before Jan. 6 committee: source close to the former president

Trump would use his testimony to showcase ‘how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard’ and other issues

By Brooke Singman | Fox News October 13, 2022:

EXCLUSIVE: Former President Donald Trump “loves the idea of testifying” before the House select committee investigating January 6th, a source close to Trump told Fox News Digital just after the panel unanimously voted to subpoena him.

The source said that if Trump complied with the subpoena and testified, he would “talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021.”

The source told Fox News Digital that it is unclear at this point if Trump actually will testify before the committee, but stressed that Trump “loves the idea.”

Former President Donald Trump stressed the importance of restoring law and order in America in his first speech in Washington, D.C., since leaving office.

The committee — which consists of seven Democrats and two anti-Trump Republicans — voted Thursday to compel Trump to testify about his conduct leading up to and during the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital on Thursday, Trump slammed the committee and its investigation as a “witch hunt.”

“The committee is a hoax, a sham, a partisan witch hunt which is a continuation of the witch hunt that has gone on since the great day for our country that I came down the golden escalator with our future first lady,” Trump said. “They have no case, they have no ratings, so they have to try to do this to get publicity.”

Trump did not comment on whether he would testify before the committee.

Trump told Fox News Digital that the investigation has been “a partisan witch hunt, together with two Republicans that have been thrown out of the party — one not wanting to run because he couldn’t win; and another losing by a record number of more than 40 points.”

EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE; NYC Protest Against Children’s Drag Story Hour

Fri, 10/14/2022 - 12:00

Oct 1, 2022. In an intermittent heavy rain,  outside a NY Public Library on west 20th st,  a Children’s Drag Story Hour Reading was announced for 11 am.

Antifa thugs showed up to protect the drag show, as did a lot of police from the non violent Guardians of Divinity who were there to inform and protect the children from these grooming story hours.

The Guardians of Divinity protestors attempted to protect the children and their PARENTS from the drag show indoctrination. (So glad LeeRoyPress captured much of what took place inside the library as I arrived late)

.The Guardians held signs like “Stop Grooming kids for Sex”. Even though they were denied entry to the library.

.(the antifa – particularly lefty photog, talia jane – seemed to be working WITH the NYPD to keep the Guardians from being seen and heard by the misguided parents.)

..Even though there was a lot of NYPD present, the Antifa’s managed to assault a couple of  the Guardians of Divinity with fists .They pummeled them in the head and face, making it necessary  to call EMT’s. (see VIDEO)

.The main  antifa thug -THIZL- responsible was eventually arrested.

….  aided by the persistent Guardians VIDEO of THIXL’S arrest, thanks to LEE ROY PRESS.

..AND the drag story hour was shut down. More examples of what is being pedaled across the country- and why families protest .

.(Megan Basham  @megbasham. If you are not provoked to righteous anger by a clergy member telling children that “do not be conformed to this world” means being a drag queen, then I think it is niceness you worship, not Jesus. We serve not only a loving God, but a holy one.)

….East Ghost Reports and Lee roy Press were at  Queens Library protest-. BTW- WHY are the drag readers always dressed as Satan?

Biden Executive Edict Allows Spying on Americans to Assess ‘Political Instability’

Thu, 10/13/2022 - 18:00

Where the hell is the spineless, gutless GOP? Americans have NO representation despite paying punishing, obscene taxes. Even the protection rackets offered protection. Here we are paying for our own demise.

Biden Gives Himself New Spy Powers

Biden executive order allows spying on Americans to assess ‘political instability,’ climate ‘threats’

The executive order provides a kind of legal ‘backdoor’ to surveillance of Americans under extremely broad pretexts.

The October 7 EO is ostensibly written to “enhanc[e] safeguards” for “United States Signals Intelligence Activities,” which is intelligence gathering by the interception of signals, including communications, such as through cell phones, or those not used in communication.

An accompanying fact sheet explains that the EO is meant to help “implement the U.S. commitments under the European Union-U.S. Data Privacy Framework (EU-U.S. DPF)” in an effort to “restore trust and stability” to transatlantic data flows. Thus, both Europeans and Americans are subject to the EO’s provisions.

The EO attempts to allay civil liberties concerns by explicitly prohibiting signals intelligence collection for the purposes of “suppressing or burdening criticism or dissent,” for example. However, the stated “legitimate objectives” of such signals intelligence collection opens the door to an extremely broad array of permitted reasons for interception — in other words, spying — by the U.S. government.

Alongside permitting spying for the purposes of sizing up the capabilities of foreign entities, the EO permits signals intelligence collection for “understanding or assessing transnational threats that impact global security, including climate and other ecological change, public health risks, humanitarian threats, political instability, and geographic rivalry.”

The document’s lack of elaboration on such so-called “transnational threats” raises the question of the true scope of activity now officially subject to spying by the U.S. government, which is potentially massive.

Assessing the “threat” of climate change, for example, could theoretically include collecting satellite signals to track the car travel of Americans and Europeans since car emissions are considered by climate activists to be one of the top sources of greenhouse gases.

The document’s wording also raises the question of what kind of activities are considered a threat to “political stability,” since Biden has declared that “MAGA Republicans” “represent an extremism and a threat to the very foundations of our republic,” and claimed that they “do not respect the rule of law.”

He suggested such “extremism” is constituted by conservative beliefs in the right to life from the moment of conception, and in traditional marriage, declaring that “MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards … to an America where there is no right to choose … no right to marry who you love.”

DREADFUL: Inflation Surged Even More than Expected in September, Consumer Price At New 40 Year Record-High

Inflation surged more than expected in September as prices remain stubbornly high

Consumer price index continues to hover near a record-high, keeping pressure on the Fed

By Fox Business, October 13, 2022:

Inflation, rising gas prices could play major role in 2022 midterms

Inflation ran hotter than expected in September as persistent prices continued to squeeze U.S. households and worsen a political headache for President Biden with just one month until midterm elections.

The Labor Department said Thursday that the consumer price index, a broad measure of the price for everyday goods including gasoline, groceries and rents, rose 0.4% in September from the previous month. Prices climbed 8.2% on an annual basis.

Those figures were both higher than the 8.1% headline figure and 0.2% monthly increase forecast by Refinitiv economists, a worrisome sign for the Federal Reserve as it seeks to cool price gains and tame consumer demand with an aggressive interest rate hike campaign.

In an even more concerning development that suggests underlying inflationary pressures in the economy remain strong, core prices – which strip out the more volatile measurements of food and energy – climbed 0.6% in September from the previous month. From the same time last year, core prices jumped 6.6%, the fastest since 1982.

SOCIAL SECURITY RECIPIENTS TO SEE BIGGEST COLA INCREASE SINCE 1981

Economists anticipated that core prices would climb 0.5% on a monthly basis and 6.5% from the previous year.

Stocks tanked on the surprisingly hot report, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 500 points. The S&P 500 tumbled 2.10% and the Nasdaq Composite slipped 2.80%.

Scorching-hot inflation has created severe financial pressures for most U.S. households, which are forced to pay more for everyday necessities like food and rent. The burden is disproportionately borne by low-income Americans, whose already-stretched paychecks are heavily impacted by price fluctuations.

SP500 S&P 500 3497.76 -79.27 -2.22%

Although households continued to see some reprieve last month in the form of lower gas prices, which fell 4.9% in September from the previous month, other price gains proved persistent and stubbornly high.

THE FED’S WAR ON INFLATION COULD COST 1M JOBS

The cost of groceries climbed 0.7%, putting the 12-month increase at 13.0%. Consumers paid more for items like cereal, chicken, milk and fresh vegetables.

Shelter costs, which account for about 40% of the core inflation increase, have climbed %, the fastest since February 1991.

Rent costs jumped 0.8% over the month and 6.7% on an annual basis. Rising rents are a concerning development because higher housing costs most directly and acutely affect household budgets. Another data point that measures how much homeowners would pay in equivalent rent if they had not bought their home, climbed 0.8% in September from the previous month.

“The composition of the inflation reading is perhaps even more worrisome than the overall number,” said Seema Shah, the chief global strategist at Principal Asset Management. “Increases in shelter and medical care indices, the stickiest segments of the CPI basket, confirm that price pressures are extremely stubborn and will not go down without a Fed fight.”

With food and shelters costs continuing to march higher, U.S. households are facing increased financial pressure. Average hourly earnings actually declined 0.1% in September on an inflation-adjusted basis. Compared to the previous year, earnings are down 3%, according to a separate BLS report.

Rampant inflation and the rapid dissolution of Americans’ buying power have become major political liabilities for Biden ahead of the November midterm elections, in which Democrats are expected to lose their already razor-thin majorities. Surveys show that Americans see inflation as the biggest problem facing the country – and that many households blame Biden for the price spike.

Emails Reveal: DHS Sec Mayorkas LIED, He Knew Whipping Allegation Was False BEFORE Spreading The Vile Lie

Thu, 10/13/2022 - 15:00

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas knew the narrative that Border Patrol agents whipped a group of Haitian migrants was false hours before he denounced the “horrifying” incident, newly released emails show.

These people are evil. And they have immense power. And they hate you.

National Review: According to the newly released emails, Department of Homeland Security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was aware the popular narrative that Border Patrol agents whipped a group of Haitian migrants was false hours before he declared the incident “horrific” during a White House press conference. One of Mayorkas’s staffers sent him an email less than three hours before the press conference relaying the account of photographer Paul Ratje, who took the viral photos and said the salacious account of what happened was false. Rather than using the information he was provided to correct the narrative, Mayorkas perpetuated the media’s misleading account of the incident by suggesting that something requiring investigation had occurred (National Review). Bill Melugin: Email reveals DHS Secretary Mayorkas was alerted by DHS’ top public affairs official that the “whipping” narrative behind horseback BP photos wasn’t true, but at a WH press conference 2.5 hours later, he didn’t refute that narrative, instead calling the images “horrifying” (Twitter). Rep. Andy Biggs: Alejandro Mayorkas defamed his own employees in order to score political points.  He has violated his oath of office and lied to the American people with a straight face. His career should be over (Twitter). Ted Cruz: Disgraceful. Mayorkas knowingly sold out the honorable men a women of Border Patrol… all to curry favor with the Biden White House. I’m just a few months, Mayorkas will—rightly—be impeached (Twitter).

Mayorkas alerted that no Haitian migrants were ‘whipped’ hours before WH press conference
Mayorkas would go on to describe the incident as ‘horrifying’

By Bill Melugin, Adam Shaw | Fox News Octboer 13, 2022:

EXCLUSIVE: Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was told that the photographer who captured a clash between Border Patrol agents and Haitian migrants in Del Rio had said that the incident was being misconstrued – hours before Mayorkas joined a White House press conference where he didn’t challenge the false narrative.

The Sept. 24, 2021 email, obtained by the Heritage Foundation via a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA), shines light onto internal deliberations surrounding the controversy in Del Rio, Texas, where Democrats and the White House pushed a narrative that migrants had been “whipped” or “strapped” by Border Patrol agents despite it being quickly debunked.

In fact, agents were using split reins to control their horses as migrants rushed across the river. But a narrative, based on a misinterpretation of photographs, was running and on Sept. 24 was further fueled by President Biden.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it’s outrageous,” Biden told reporters, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now, and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

CBP FINDS ‘NO EVIDENCE’ BORDER PATROL AGENTS WHIPPED HAITIAN MIGRANTS, STILL SEEKS TO DISCIPLINE THEM

The investigation is still ongoing more than a year later, but findings by the Office of Professional Responsibility in July found that no whips were in their possession and no migrant was struck by the reins – although it did find other alleged infractions.

But just hours after Biden made his inflammatory remarks to cameras, Marsha Espinosa, assistant secretary of DHS public affairs, emailed Mayorkas and cc’d other DHS leadership, alerting them to a news article that showed that the photographer who took the images did not see any whipping. In the email, Espinosa highlighted the comments from the photographer where he directly says he did not witness any whipping.

Two and a half hours after receiving that email, Mayorkas joined White House press secretary Jen Psaki at a White House press conference, where he continued to push the narrative:

“Our nation saw horrifying images that do not reflect who we are. We know that those images painfully conjured up the worst elements of our nation’s ongoing battle against systemic racism,” Mayorkas said.

Mayorkas, earlier in the week, had spoken alongside Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz, and had defended the agents – even pointing out that agents use long reins to control their horses, not as whips. But by the end of the week, that clarification was abandoned.
