One Law. One Page. Part 9. No new laws, executive orders, etc., during the last nine months of an election year. Except for a national emergency. Seems like an outgoing administration tends to make all these crazy laws, executive orders, and the list goes on.

Look at the EPA, Homeland Security, DOJ, ETC. All are rushing to get crazy laws and policies passed. My law would stop the last minute rush. Below is a perfect example.

The Biden administration on Wednesday published a rule that’s expected to drive a significant shift from gas-powered to electric vehicle (EV) sales.

Biden has mentioned several other new executive orders he has planned over the next few months. If an emergency arises, then any new laws would be allowed.

No Virginia. Tuesday’s Congressional race wasn’t about Trump and not a sign of future races.

No Virginia. Tuesday’s Congressional race wasn’t about Trump and not a sign of future races. Democrat Tom Suozzi flipping the seat once held by disgraced Republican George Santos.

This was the former Congressman who served three previous terms, so the folks knew him. He ran against a person who up until a week before the election was a Democrat. Her mistake? She like the Democrat ran against Trump, and the trump folks stayed home.

Democrats voted early and Republicans did not.

So how does 2024 close out politically if Republicans win the White House?

Views: 25

So how does 2024 close out politically if Republicans win the White House? President Joe Biden is all but a lock to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for the second time, but he is facing down a long list of competitors. While this pack is led by former President Donald Trump, there are a host of other GOP contenders looking to usurp the lead from the former president. A number of independent candidates also remain in the race as well.

Here’s my fear if the Biden administration is out. The Administration would just give in at the border all together. I can even see them laying off border agents. Millions upon millions would cross. What say you?

A Handy January 6 Fact Sheet

Views: 33

A Handy January 6 Fact Sheet.

Thanks to the folks at American Greatness for this article.

In another example of Washington’s inexorable slide into banana republic territory, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) took to the floor of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday to call for the removal of an American journalist.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anchor treat the American people, and American democracy, with such disdain,” Schumer said during his seven-minute authoritarian tirade. “And he’s going to come back tonight with another segment. Fox News should tell him not to. Fox News, Rupert Murdoch—tell Mr. Carlson not to run a second segment of lies. You know it’s a lie.”

Schumer later reiterated his demand to a group of journalists who, rather than denounce one of the most powerful government officials in the country attempting to silence an influential member of the media, dutifully reported Schumer’s bleating without question.

Republican senators including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joined the fray, echoing Schumer’s faux concerns over “national security.”

Clearly, it’s panic time. The White House, Congress, and the Democratic Party propaganda arm that is the corporate media realize their carefully engineered narrative about January 6 is imploding in real time. Which is why they’re accusing Carlson of “whitewashing” and “rewriting” the events of January 6. Anything less than total fealty to regime-approved talking points about what happened before and after that day now is considered a “threat to democracy.”

But facts are facts. And no amount of pearl-clutching by the hags on “The View” or threats made by U.S. senators can alter the reality of January 6. Between video recordings, witness testimony, court filings, and news reporting, the undeniable truth about January 6 cannot be willfully wished away even by the most skilled spinmeisters.

Here’s what we know:

  • Some people acted badly. A handful came ready for a fight while others admit they were caught up in a mob mentality that unfolded over the course of the afternoon.
  • The overwhelming majority of protesters did not act badly or violently. Not only do security footage and other video sources demonstrate that is indeed true, the Justice Department’s own data supports it. “Parading” in the Capitol, a class B misdemeanor, is by far the most common charge in the Justice Department’s sweeping investigation. According to an update published this week, 919 out of 1,000 defendants face trespassing charges. Of the 518 who accepted plea agreements, 385 pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and 133 pleaded guilty to a felony.
  • The most common felony is not “insurrection” but rather obstruction of an official proceeding. Fewer than 20 people face seditious conspiracy charges.
  • Roughly 100 defendants are accused of attacking police officers with a dangerous weapon. No one is charged with carrying or using a firearm inside the building.
  • Speaking of police, body-worn camera and independent video show outrageous misconduct by law enforcement. D.C. Metropolitan Police launched an aggressive and unnecessary offensive against the crowd assembled on the west lawn. Even though protesters were respecting police lines at the time, footage shows officers throwing stun grenades into and other devices containing rubber bullets into the crowd beginning shortly after 1:00 p.m.
  • Video and testimony by Capitol police officers at trial confirmed how that activity enraged the crowd. Other officers shoved women down stairs and shoved one man off the upper terrace balcony.
  • This conduct continued inside the building. Some officers shoved and hit individuals inside the Rotunda and other areas. A brutal scene in the lower west terrace tunnel unfolded as police used their batons to beat at least two women on the head resulting in bleeding and injuries.
  • Excessive force caused the deaths of four Trump supporters: Ashli Babbitt, Rosanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson, and Benjamin Phillips.
  • On the flip side, despite persistent claims even by Attorney General Merrick Garland and White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre as recently as this week, no police officers died as a result of injuries sustained on January 6. Officer Brian Sicknick is on video walking around after he suffered a pepper spray attack; he died of a stroke the next day. There’s no evidence the reported suicides of other officers after January 6 were related to the protest.
  • Further, the responsibility of sufficiently protecting the Capitol with enough officers fell to the Capitol Police board—staffed by the sergeant-at-arms for then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund repeatedly testified that he requested additional help including National Guardsmen days before January 6. Even as the chaos unfolded that day, House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger delayed pursuing the proper authorization of the National Guard.
  • Irving told House Republicans that his staff as well as members of the House Administration committee began planning for January 6 weeks before the protest. Jamie Fleet, a security staffer for both Pelosi and the committee overseeing Capitol functions, told the January 6 select committee that he started preparations for January 6 in the summer of 2020.
  • When the building was breached at around 2:15 p.m., Congress was not voting to certify the electoral college results at the time, a common misperception. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) were in the process of disputing the election outcome in Gosar’s home state, a process permitted under the Electoral Count Act. The joint session of Congress technically had been adjourned an hour earlier so debate could begin.
  • For all the wasted energy spent over the past two years that democracy almost died on January 6, the chaotic protest only delayed the certification ceremony for seven hours. Joe Biden officially was declared president at 3:00 a.m. the next day.
  • The surveillance video viewed by Carlson’s team has not been made available to defense attorneys, arguably in violation of defendants’ constitutional rights.
  • A separate trove of tapes that captured activity from the hours between noon and 8:00 p.m. was turned over to the FBI in early 2021 to use in its investigation. With few exceptions, all footage remains under protective orders. Defense attorneys consistently have complained that access to the full archive is constrained by the protective orders.

Plenty of other falsehoods and misrepresentations animate the fable of January 6. But for those honestly seeking the truth, consider this a cheat sheet for future use.

Whites still have the power when it comes to elections. But they didn’t swing largely for Republicans.

Views: 14

Another reason Republicans red wave was a small one. We saw how the Black and Latino vote increased for Republicans this past election. And we saw how 5 million more people voted for Republicans in the Congressional races but outside the red districts that didn’t help much. Why?

Midterm election turnout among black voters appears to be 25 percent lower than white turnout, marking the lowest share of the black electorate since 2006, a New York Times analysis revealed Wednesday.

Granted the large majority would have voted Democrat but if the Republicans got 10% of that 25, you would have seen some big changes in the house, Arizona, and NY governors races.

But the whites who voted in those blue areas were happy with the status quo. So wnen Republicans get back that white vote and continue to grow the black and brown vote, then you will see more Republican office holders in blue districts

My opinion. Why these great election laws need to go before the Supreme Court.

Views: 28

Why these great election laws need to go before the Supreme Court. Add Florida and Kansas to the list of states that have fixed their laws so it can make voting easier for all folks. Black, White, Brown, etc.

Of course those minorities that have something to hide ( those who fled the South for the West Coast ) don’t wish to provide an ID when they vote. Why?

With the horrible House bill that would take away all state and local laws, the time is now for the Supreme Court to act before the 2022 elections. Let’s not have a repeat of 2020.

Winning road to 2022. Virginia law thrown out.

Views: 30

Winning road to 2022. Virginia law thrown out. We got another one in the win column. In Virginia the law was changed to allow ballots three days after election day even if they weren’t dated. Well a judge ruled that the law was illegal. The latest ruling reinforces the earlier injunction, assuring that Virginia will not be able to make similar changes to future elections in the state without adequate changes in current law. This is the latest victory for fair elections.

Two weeks ago the US Supreme court ruled against universal mail in ballots. The Democrats again tried to use the phony virus excuse. We have this from our friends at Bloomberg.

The U.S. Supreme Court turned away a Democratic bid to force universal vote-by-mail in Texas, leaving intact a state law that lets people cast no-excuse absentee ballots only if they are 65 or older.

NY, PA, WI, MI, and GA. States where Governors, State Secretaries or both changed the rules.

Yes we still have one election that hasn’t been decided yet.

NY, PA, WI, MI, and GA. States where Governors, State Secretaries or both changed the rules. Did you know that votes are still being counted and fabricated from the 2020 election. In NY that is.

Why did this happen? Like Governors from a few other states, Cuomo by executive order decided to change the law. The law voted by a state legislature controlled by Democrats. This from FOX.

So for the first time in New York’s history, the county boards of elections were forced to contend with essentially three elections: early voting during a presidential year; running Election Day with a record turnout; and handling a record number of absentee ballots due to the coronavirus pandemic, involving figuring out how to “cure” any flawed ballots.

Many of the boards — especially Oneida County’s — didn’t do their jobs properly.

Oneida County, the district’s largest and centered around the city of Utica, saw election commissioners use sticky notes to keep track of the reasons why Tenney and Brindisi lawyers disputed dozens of ballots. But many of those sticky notes fell off, so for some it’s impossible to know whether a challenged ballot has been counted or not.

A full recount of disputed ballots in the eight counties in the congressional district has been completed. It shows former Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney defeating former Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi by just over 30 votes out of more than 311,000 cast.

But the recount is only one step in a grueling process that will probably keep the House seat vacant for weeks longer. On Monday, State Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte will begin going through 1,028 disputed ballots and rule on which should be counted.

Two weeks ago it was discovered that Oneida County’s elections board had failed to process 2,418 voter registration forms from voters who signed up on time through the Department of Motor Vehicles.

When many of those voters showed up at the polls they were told they weren’t registered. Hundreds left without voting, while some 300 filed provisional ballots that weren’t counted.

Now Justice DelConte says he will decide which of the new ballots will be counted. Whatever his ruling, it will be appealed. Ultimately, the closely divided House of Representatives controlled by Democrats will decide if it will seat the winner or conduct its own second-guessing investigation.

 

Here’s what’s sad. After the judge rules, there will still be an appeal.
