Is Newsom Punishing Those Who Tried To Recall Him?

 Issues & Insights   "Ralph Waldo Emerson said “when you strike at a king, you must kill him.” Gov. Gavin Newsom is no king, and last month’s recall campaign was not intended to
harm him physically. But it’s foolish to believe he won’t respond as a monarch who narrowly missed losing his crown would.

. . . "Newsom, who’s been working his way up California politics since the 1990s, had never appeared to be the vindictive sort, such as, say, a Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. But then the recall race tightened up. The now-famous “damn” interview in August with editorial boards from McClatchy’s California newspapers made it obvious that the pressure was getting to him. He lashed out at the journalists who were interviewing him, “everybody outside this state,” and “our homegrown team.” He also made it clear that he feels threatened by Texas, because he made a comparison between the states that he couldn’t back up.

At that point, it became clear that a cornered Newsom was capable of punishing his political enemies. 

"Of course, the walls that were closing in are now gone. So the “left-leaning advocacy organizations” that “are ready with a list of ideas” – such as a new focus on taxpayer-provided health care and climate – for Newsom to turn into policy will have an extra-attentive governor at the table. 

“ 'When you face a recall … it sharpens your focus about time,” Newsom said. “Things that you may have looked at on the horizon and said, ‘You know over the next two, three years, we want to get this done,’ you start looking very differently and say, ‘What’s possible in the next two to three months?’”

"British journalist Piers Morgan, who has lived and worked in California, and still has a home in Los Angeles, noted this month that, “empowered by his recent recall election win, Newsom fired off a raft of laws that included making it illegal to use gas-powered ‘off-road engine engines’ including leaf-blowers, lawnmowers, and golf carts, ordered schools to teach all students ‘ethnic studies’, and large toy stores to have gender-neutral sections.' ” . . .

What to Make of Terry McAuliffe’s Disgraceful Display in Virginia

Rajan Laad   . . ."Overall, McAuliffe is beginning to look desperate and consequently lackluster. 

"Things took a turn for the worse yesterday when the disgraced anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project attempted to orchestrate a hoax that involved five individuals dressed up as white supremacists expressing support for Youngkin in a bid to repel Virginia's voters. Among these ‘white supremacists reluctantly standing before Youngkin’s campaign bus was a black man and what appeared to be a woman.

"The motives behind this disgraceful and amateur stunt were instantly discovered and ridiculed on social media.

"But that didn't stop members of McAuliffe’s campaign team and their allies in the media, amplifying the hoax.

"McAuliffe’s ‘outraged’ communications staffer Jen Goodman tweeted that the gathering was “disgusting and disqualifying.”

“This is who Glenn Youngkin’s supporters are,” said Christina Freundlich, who is part of McAuliffe’s campaign team.

"This is the same Lincoln Project whose co-founder was accused of sexually harassing more than 20 young men while the senior management was accused of looking the other way, despite being aware of it. Also, of the $90 million that the Lincoln Project has raised, more than $50 million has gone to firms controlled by the group’s leaders." . . .

Jihadist Threat Against Malls In Virginia ... Afghan Refugees? Couldn't Have Seen That One Coming

Infidel Bloggers       " Catherine Herridge  "NEW: Sources tell @CBSNews the warning of a potential threat against malls and shopping centers located just outside Washington D.C. originated with ISIS. Law enforcement actively assessing credibility."

If Catherine Herridge said it, you can believe it; she isn't in the same universe as Reid, Lemon, Cuomo, and the other propagandists

)Recall it was an NBC reporter who gave us "Let's GO, Brandon!")

Here's what 'Let's Go, Brandon' actually means and how it made its way to Congress


"If you've heard people chanting "Let's go, Brandon!" or seen someone with a shirt or hat sporting the seemingly-jovial message lately, you might be wondering who Brandon is and why so many people are rooting for him.

"In this case, the phrase isn't actually supporting a guy named Brandon. Instead, it's a euphemism that many people in conservative circles are using in place of saying "F*** Joe Biden."

"It remains unclear if Stavast misheard what the crowd was saying or if she purposely tried to change the message.The origins of the meme go back to Oct. 2, when race car driver Brandon Brown won his first NASCAR Xfinity Series race and was being interviewed by NBC reporter Kelli Stavast. In the background, some in the crowd can be heard chanting "F*** Joe Biden," though Stavast says "you can hear the chants from the crowd, 'Let's go, Brandon!' " in her broadcast.

"Who's using the chant and meme?

"Either way, the phrase "Let's go, Brandon!" quickly spread among conservative groups and continues to be used in place of the direct expletive toward President Biden, even among members of Congress." . . .

Mistake? I think not. Remember this is NBC, a yokefellow of CNN, which gave us this propaganda gem:

Chris Matyszczyk for Technically Incorrect

"You know the way the world is going because you're happy it's happening.

"Out with the old ways of doing things -- going to work at an office, for example -- and in with doing your own thing. All the time, anywhere.

"I sense McDonald's understands this.

"It seems to have realized that people coming to work at its restaurants, greeting you as they take your order at the drive-thru and then quickly cooking your food is an outmoded concept.

"Instead, how about machines doing it all faster than humans ever could?

"Well, here's a little announcement the global burger chain made last week. McDonald's is now getting together with a very, very famous name in tech in order to make the drive-thru more robotic and therefore more crowd-pleasing." . . .Full article.

Alexandr Solzhenitsyn: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened

Alexander Solzhenitsyn  "As a survivor of the Communist Holocaust I am horrified to witness how my beloved America, my adopted country, is gradually being transformed into a secularist and atheistic utopia, where communist ideals are glorified and promoted, while Judeo-Christian values and morality are ridiculed and increasingly eradicated from the public and social consciousness of our nation. Under the decades-long assault and militant radicalism of many so-called “liberal” and “progressive” elites, God has been progressively erased from our public and educational institutions, to be replaced with all manner of delusion, perversion, corruption, violence, decadence, and insanity.

"It is no coincidence that as Marxist ideologies and secularist principles engulf the culture and pervert mainstream thinking, individual freedoms and liberties are rapidly disappearing. As a consequence, Americans feel increasingly more powerless and subjugated by some of the most radical and hypocritical, least democratic, and characterless individuals our society has ever produced.

"Those of us who have experienced and witnesses first-hand the atrocities and terror of communism understand fully why such evil takes root, how it grows and deceives, and the kind of hell it will ultimately unleash on the innocent and the faithful. Godlessness is always the first step towards tyranny and oppression!

"Nobel laureate, Orthodox Christian author, and Russian dissident, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, in his “Godlessness: the First Step to the Gulag” address, given when he received the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion on May of 1983, explained how the Russian revolution and the communist takeover were facilitated by an atheistic mentality an a long process of secularization which alienated the people from God and traditional Christian morality and beliefs. He rightly concluded: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.' ” . . .

EXCLUSIVE: Forget the Gender Unicorn, Genderbread Person is here to explain sexuality


Campus Reform   "Officials at the University of Arkansas used the Genderbread Person as a teaching resource in a presentation on safe zones and sexuality.

"The creators of the Gender Unicorn have criticized the Genderbread Person for being too Western."

"Addison Pummill | Senior Arkansas Campus Correspondent;  Thursday, October 21, 2021 9:00 AM

"The "Genderbread Person" was featured at the the University of Arkansas' “Safe Zone Allies Training,” where presenters used the figure to explain what they characterized as the spectrum of human sexuality.

"The Genderbread Person was first designed in 2011 by Sam Killermann, an artist and activist, and has since been downloaded nearly 3 million times in 108 countries.  

"Killermann has also authored projects such as “The Safe Zone Project 2.0” and “It’s Pronounced Meterosexual.” . . .

"Trump would have unloaded the cargo ships by now"

What would President Trump do different? Everything.  First, his transportation secretary would not be on a permanent paternity vacation,Second, Trump he would not fine the victims. That is one of "Biden's remedies." 

Don Surber  " We have ships loaded with cargo sitting in San Pedro Bay waiting to be unloaded, and store shelves across the country waiting to be loaded.

"President Donald John Trump would have fixed the problem by now.

"But 81 million Democrat ballots topped 75 million voters and Biden is in charge.

"Power Line reported, "Two weeks ago, Joe Biden announced with fanfare that he was taking steps towards having our main port facilities operate around the clock to alleviate the supply chain snags that are causing so much disruption. Since then, according to the Washington Post, the backlog of ships anchored off the coast of Southern California has increased.

"For example, as of Monday, 73 container ships were anchored in San Pedro Bay. That exceeded the number present when Biden announced his initiative.

"According to Goldman Sachs, more than 30 million tons of cargo now sit aboard vessels idling outside of U.S. ports. It predicts that port congestion will not ease until the second half of next year." .  . .

7 Insane Things I Just Learned About How U.S. Elections Are ‘Rigged’

The Federalist

"Remember, admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovery."

"The extent to which corporate media rigs elections for Democrats has been rigorously documented since at least Tim Groseclose’s 2012 book, “Left Turn.” In that book, the political scientist concluded through data-driven analysis that media bias on average shifts the electorate 20 points to the left on a 100-point political worldview scale. Without media bias, he argued, the average American state would be as Republican-leaning as Texas or Kentucky, and those two states would be even more conservative.

"Media bias was highly visible even before Rush Limbaugh made it a regular feature of his top-rated radio show that became nationally syndicated in 1988. As the Trump era dawned, however, media coverage moved from biased to outright propaganda.

"Corporate media went from picking left-friendly frames and omitting facts that reinforced right-leaning views about public affairs, as Groseclose documented in 2012, to outright mass hoaxing of voters by 2016. While hyperventilating about the minority of Americans who believe conspiracy theories like QAnon, leftist media not only inflamed but also outright fabricated conspiracy theories that the majority of Democrat voters believe.

"For example, in 2020, a majority of Americans — including 81 percent of self-described “liberals” — believed the lie that Donald Trump committed treason for Russia. That claim was disproven by a two-year, Democrat-populated special counsel investigation that spent $32 million to find no evidence for this hoax, which effectively hamstrung a president from pursuing what voters put him in office to accomplish.

"This corporate media smear machine was only one of the numerous unfair advantages Democrats exploited in the 2020 elections. My colleague, Mollie Hemingway, just put out a new, bestselling book that also documents things like big tech hiding election-shifting news from voters and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg embedding Democrat get-out-the-vote operations inside local election offices — which are supposed to be nonpartisan! What’s more, all these cheats affixed into our nation’s election machinery haven’t been scrubbed away, not by a long shot." . . .

Biden says Pope Francis told him to continue receiving communion, amid scrutiny over pro-abortion policies

If Joe said it, it MUST be true. Knowing the politics of this Pope, he seems to be a Democrat at heart.

 Fox News  "President Biden said that Pope Francis, during their meeting Friday in Vatican City, told him that he should continue to receive co mmunion, amid heightened scrutiny of the Catholic president's pro-abortion policies.  

"The president, following the approximately 90-minute-long meeting, a key part of his trip to Italy for the G20, told reporters details of their discussions. 

"Biden said that Francis told him that he should keep receiving communion. The president said the pope blessed his rosary, and added that they discussed fighting climate change as part of his Build Back Better agenda. ". . .

Biden says Pope Francis didn’t talk abortion and he can have communion  "President Biden said Friday that Pope Francis didn’t mention abortion but told him to continue taking communion during a 90-minute meeting that reporters weren’t allowed to attend.

"Biden told reporters after the meeting that “no” they didn’t discuss abortion.

“ 'We just talked about the fact that he was happy I’m a good Catholic and I should keep receiving communion,” Biden said.". . . 


Not one, not two: Four anti-Biden ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ songs reach iTunes top 10

I like this, but it's a photoshop obviously. Eric Swalwell should buy it.

"After that: More Brandon. Coming in at number five was a Loza Alexander remix called “Let’s Go Brandon” by Godz Child, followed by Mr. Alexander’s original “Lets Go Brandon.”

"The Florida-based rapper Godz Child was the latest to crack the top 10 with a song that dubs his own lyrics over Mr. Alexander’s catchy background loop.

"Hustle Weekly reported that the Godz Child version had gone “viral on TikTok.”

"On the iTunes list of top downloaded rap and hip-hop songs, the dominance was even greater: “Brandon” dominated the top five, with the fifth position taken by a “Let’s Go Brandon” record by Topher, D.Cure & the Marine Rapper."

Parents sue medical examiner over suicide ruling for woman who died of 20 stab wounds

NY Post    "The parents of a Pennsylvania woman who died of 20 stab wounds are taking the medical examiner’s office to court for declaring her death a suicide.

"Ellen Greenberg’s parents have been granted a non-jury trial in their lawsuit against the coroner’s office over her January 2011 death in her Philadelphia apartment, CBS Philly reported.

“ 'We look forward to the trial in hopes of obtaining justice for Ellen,” Sandra Greenberg, Ellen’s mother, told the outlet.

"On the day of her death, Ellen, 27, had returned home to her apartment early from her first-grade teaching job on account of a snowstorm.

"She was later discovered dead on the kitchen floor by her fiance, Sam Goldberg, when he returned home from the gym.

Rep. Eric Swalwell Falls for Failed Virginia Tiki Torch Hoax

UK Daily Mail: Bid to smear Virginia Rep gubernatorial challenger as a racist is foiled: Fake Youngkin supporters dressed as 'Unite the Right' protestors pose in front of his bus, setting off firestorm of criticism - before Lincoln Project admits stunt

Pictured, right:  "Lauren Windsor, a self-proclaimed 'progressive pugilist swamp-slayer' said on Friday evening that she had worked the The Lincoln Project to stage the stunt"

Breitbart  "Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, fell for and promoted the tiki torch hoax during the Virginia governor’s race on Friday.

“ 'Birds of a feather,” tweeted Swalwell in response to a now-deleted post that called a photo of five tiki torch-wielding democrats “disgusting.”

"Many users on social media called out Swalwell for promoting the tiki torch stunt.". . .

"In addition to that, early Friday afternoon – two hours after he commented on the tiki torch photo that the NBC News reporter had tweeted out, Swalwell also urged his followers to follow radical Dem activist Lauren Windsor, who Swalwell claims has the goods on Republicans in regards to the Capitol riot. Why is that relevant? Because late Friday afternoon, Windsor admitted to her role in the Lincoln Project tiki torch stunt:

Lauren Windsor :  
In my capacity as a communications consultant, I worked w to coordinate today's Youngkin action in Charlottesville. I join them in the fight to defend our democracy from rightwing extremists and call for Glenn Youngkin to denounce Trump’s ‘very fine people.

Vice: We forced the Lincoln Project to admit they were behind the hate hoax

Clearly the Lincoln Project was happy to see their own Jussie Smollett hate hoax spread and I suspect they would have let it roll all weekend if they’d be able to. So why did they confess to their involvement a few hours later? According to Vice, it’s because they identified one of the participants as someone who has held events with the Lincoln Project.

The false religion of wokeness

Washington Examiner

. . . In colleges, the movement away from merit-based admissions has taught black students that, in a reversal of Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous formula, the color of their skin matters more than the content of their character. . .

"It’s become commonplace to argue that wokeness has all the trappings, if not the makings, of a new religion.

"The argument is persuasive. In its language and practices, wokeness imitates some of the common aspects of religions. It has myths (that America’s true founding was in 1619) and beliefs (that systemic racism permeates every aspect of America’s institutions) that believers take on faith. It has clerics — Ibram X. Kendi, Robin DiAngelo, Ta-Nehisi Coates — who speak ex cathedra. And it promises transcendence: In taking up arms against white supremacy and its effects, the righteous may participate in the defining struggle of our time.

"Thus argues John McWhorter — a professor of linguistics at Columbia, and himself a black man — in his new book, Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America. The zeal of the “Elect,” as McWhorter calls the adherents of this new creed, has made wokeness one of the most powerful forms of religious observance in America today. In a matter of years, a fringe ideology formerly limited to academia has swept through corporations, churches, schools, and federal and state governments. Addressing himself to readers half-convinced of this ideology’s truth, McWhorter argues that wokeness is harmful to the very people it purports to help.". . . Washington Examiner,

Gen. Mark Milley Finally Concerned with China’s Hypersonic Missile Capability

 Legal Insurrection   "Just a few short weeks ago, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, considered anti-Trump publicity and critical race theory acceptance proper priorities.

"We recently reported that the Chinese had conducted tests involving hypersonic missiles. Milley is now concerned China could be close to a “Sputnik” moment.

China’s testing of a hypersonic missile designed to evade American nuclear defenses was “very close” to a “Sputnik moment” for the United States, Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Wednesday in the first official confirmation of how Beijing’s demonstration of its weapon capabilities had taken American officials by surprise.

The tests, which could revive fears of a Cold War-like arms race, come as Beijing is spending heavily to modernize its military and may be seeking to expand its nuclear arsenal.

Two separate tests, reported earlier by The Financial Times, took place this summer, conducted in a fashion that Chinese officials knew would be highly visible to American satellites. But United States officials remained mostly silent until General Milley spoke on Wednesday, talking about the tests on a Bloomberg Television interview show hosted by David Rubenstein, the billionaire investor and philanthropist.

“I don’t know if it’s quite a Sputnik moment, but I think it’s very close to that,” General Milley said, making it clear he and other officials were surprised. The tests, he said, were a “very significant technological event,” and he said “it has all of our attention.”

The deadly word games that brought us 'Gain of Function'

"This is where Fauci's word magic comes in because in biology, the jargon term "Gain of Function" refers not to human health, but to the health of the bugs that can kill you. So you thought the NIH was about YOUR health?"


 James Lewis  "Take the biggest headline lie today about the origins of COVID in an enormous U.S.-funded virology lab in Wuhan, China.  Your National Institutes of Health paid for the molecular trickery that made the virus more and more deadly to human beings until the armed-up virus somehow exploded out of Wuhan and spread around the world in a matter of days and weeks.

"Except that the bug didn't spread to Chinese government centers like Beijing, which simply blocked travelers from Wuhan.

"Even Nature magazine, the oldest science magazine in the world, has called attention to the tricky terminology of "Gain of Function."  But Nature's article is still shrouded in jargon.

"In the real world, the bug's Gain of Function is a horror story.

"The biggest single bug vector at the start of the pandemic went from Wuhan to Milan, where tens of thousands of Chinese workers carried the virus to overwhelm Italy's medical system overnight.

"Thousands of patients started to choke from an unknown cause, and their panicked doctors had no idea what they were dealing with.  They were caught unprepared, and China was not going to help them figure it out.

"China knew a lot about the virus, but nobody told Italian emergency doctors, who stood by helplessly while their patients suddenly died.

"The basic science that made the virus is now called "Gain of Function" research, but any American taxpayer who reads "Gain of Function" is likely to think a half-million dollars of U.S. money was spent for our "Gain of Function."

"It's called the National Institutes of Health, isn't it?  Why are we paying for the NIH if it isn't for human health?". . . Full article...

Tucker Carlson To Release BOMBSHELL Documentary on “The True Story Behind January 6th”...”The Left is HUNTING The Right!”

 100%FedUp  "Almost single-handedly, Tucker Carlson is doing the heavy lifting for the dishonest corporate media when it comes to shining a light on the truth behind what happened on January 6th.

"For months, 100 Percent Fed Up and the Gateway Pundit have been reporting on January 6th political prisoners, false flags, and how the Democrats in conjunction with federal agents potentially set up Trump and his supporters. Those who traveled to Washington DC to demand lawmakers take a closer look at the election in contested states before certifying the election for a man who, as it turns out, is the most dangerous person to ever occupy the White House (not counting his former boss, who is likely pulling all of the strings behind the curtain in the Oval Office) are being held in solitary confinement, they are being refused medical care and basic human rights.

"Tucker Carlson was the first person on a top-rated television show to call into question the role federal agents played in the so-called “insurrection” on January 6th. (See video here). Now, he’s following up with an incredible documentary that is certain to rock the Democrat Party and dirty federal agents, (like those we discovered in the uncovering of the Russian hoax scam with Peter Strozk), to the core."...
