This Is How Government Breeds Mistrust

 






Why Obama Is Out to Get Trump

 Why Obama Is Out to Get Trump | NoisyRoom.net   "Professor Jonathan Turley was on Fox saying he had supported the confirmation of Merrick Garland as Attorney General but now says he is disappointed in Garland’s political pursuit of Trump. Turley still doesn’t get it.   Garland is an agent of Barack Hussein Obama, who approved Hillary’s plan to launch the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation of Trump.

"Turley is the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at The George Washington University Law School who once gave testimony denouncing “Eugene McCarthyism” before Congress. He was supposed to be an expert on “disinformation and extremism in the media.”

"McCarthy’s first name was Joe, not Eugene. Eugene was a peacenik Democrat.

"The Fox channel calls him a “constitutional scholar.”

"Every day the media talk about Trump, in terms of a secret affidavit authorizing the FBI raid, the Marxists win. What we should be talking about is the Marxist president who got us into this mess and was briefed on Hillary’s Russia-gate plan by his CIA chief, John Brennan.

"Two-term president Barack Hussein Obama is a not-so-secret Marxist whose communist proclivities were carefully concealed from the American people. Brennan’s Marxist proclivities were out in the open since he had talked about voting for the Communist Party as a college student.

"It was Obama, as president, who had to approve Russia-gate. He also happened to be the president who tried to get Garland on the Supreme Court.

"Garland is a political fixer.". . .

Who Are You Calling A Fascist, Mr. President?

 Who Are You Calling A Fascist, Mr. President? (thefederalist.com)  "The other day Joe Biden accused voters of the opposition party of turning to “semi-fascism.” This is probably the first time in American history a president has openly attacked the opposing party’s constituents in this way. Grammatically speaking, the accusation could use a little work. What Biden probably meant to say was that 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2020 are “quasi-fascist” or “increasingly fascistic.”

"Then again, Biden, who once alleged that the chaste Mitt Romney was harboring a desire to bring back chattel slavery, is prone to stupid hyperbole. And it’s true that most people who throw around the word “fascist” fail to do so with much precision.* Anyway, our president will probably further explain his thinking on the matter of “semi-fascism” when he gives a prime-time speech about threats to our “democracy” this Thursday—a week after he broke millions of existing contracts and unilaterally “forgave” student loans by executive decree. Biden has engaged in historic and unprecedented abuses of White House power. Sometimes, the chutzpah is staggering.

"These days, the word “democracy,” like “fascism,” has lost all meaning. According to Democrats, asking someone to show ID before voting is an attack on “democracy,” but so is the Supreme Court’s handing back power to voters on the abortion issue. When you have no limiting principles of governance, anything that inhibits your exertion of power is seen as anti-“democracy.” If students have loans to be paid, “forgive” them. If you can’t pass a bill, the executive branch should do it by fiat. If the court stops it, pack it. Power is only to be limited when the opposition holds it. When Donald Trump wants to divert money to secure the southern border, it evokes images of 1930s Germany. When Barack Obama unilaterally bestows amnesty on millions of newcomers, without any debate or due process, it is just and moral … and shut up racists.

"A microcosm of this confused thinking can be found in the recent spate of hysterical media pieces about alleged Republican “book banning.” The use of “ban” by the media is more than a category error, it’s an effort to paint parents who use the very same exact democratic
powers the left has relied on for decades as book burners. Public school curricula and book selection are political questions decided by school and library boards. Neither have a duty to carry every single volume on racial identitarianism or sexually explicit material simply demanded by some busybody at the American Library Association. We can debate whether these books are harmful or not, but it is neither fascism nor authoritarian to make those decisions.". . .

They Want Her Dead: Marjorie Taylor Greene Swatted for Second Night in a Row

The Gateway Pundit

  FrontpageMag  . . ."As Stephen Green reported Wednesday, the first caller told cops that someone had been shot inside Greene’s home. The Rome News-Tribune said that the call led cops to think “a man who had been shot multiple times was in the bathtub at Greene’s home. The caller also stated there was a woman inside the home and possibly children with her. When officers arrived, Greene assured them there was no issue at the home.”

"For that call, we know the motive. The Rome Police Department stated: “After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives. It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her. The report also stated that the caller claimed they are connected to a website that police said supports cyberstalking and gave the police their user name on the site.”

"This makes it clear yet again: radical Leftists are totalitarians. They want their opponents silenced. They want their opponents dead. They will brook no dissent.

"Greene’s spokesman Nick Dyer said: “Right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern. Late last night, she was a victim of a political attack on her family and home. Whoever committed this violent crime will face the full extent of the law.” To that, MSN sneered that “a statement from Greene’s office… described the calls as ‘violent crimes’ even though no violence occurred.”

"It’s only conservative speech that is violent, you see. Leftists actively trying to fool cops into committing an act of violence and kill a sitting congresswoman? That’s not violence. Violence is only something the other side engages in.". . .

Here’s the White House’s Excuse for Why Biden’s Been Ignoring Israel’s Calls

 Here’s the White House’s Excuse for Why Biden’s Been Ignoring Israel’s Calls (townhall.com)


. . ."Prime Minister Yair Lapid has requested a meeting with US President Joe Biden during his visit to the US for the UN General Assembly next month," The Post reported, "amid deep concern in Jerusalem over an impending nuclear deal between Washington and Tehran." 
   "Evidently, "Lapid hopes to meet with Biden on September 20, the day that the US president is set to address the General Assembly," but no meeting has yet been confirmed — but it's worse than that. "Lapid has yet to be able to speak to Biden on the phone, despite recent advances in Iran talks, according to multiple sources," The Post noted. 
    "That is, America's greatest ally in the Middle East can't even get Joe Biden on the phone as the White House works — through Russia, lest we forget — to negotiate a massive payday for the Iranian regime and more normal relations between the tyrannical regime and the rest of the world. 
     "So why the radio silence from Biden? "At first, the White House cited Biden’s summer vacation," the Post said, "but the president returned to Washington on Wednesday." Never mind, apparently, that Biden's spokespeople have repeatedly insisted that the president is able to do all necessary work required of him whether he's in the White House or off on one of his frequent trips out of town. 
     "Israel continues to ramp up its military capabilities — with both defensive and offensive weaponry — "in [the] face of Iran’s nuclear program as well as its regional aggression," Defense Minister Benny Gantz recently said after a meeting with Biden's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan". . .

What is 'gain-of-function'?

Why would researchers do gain-of-function work on potentially dangerous pathogens?

 

Phys.org  . . ."Much of the discussion surrounds "gain-of-function" research. So The Conversation asked David Gillum and Rebecca Moritz, who work closely with virologists on a day-to-day basis to ensure the safety and security of the research, and Sam Weiss Evans and Megan Palmer, who are science and technology policy experts, to explain what this term means and why this kind of research is important.

What does gain of function mean?

"Any organism can acquire a new ability or property, or "gain" a "function." This can happen through natural selection or a researcher's experiments. In research, many different types of experiments generate functions, and some pose certain safety and security concerns.

"Scientists use a variety of techniques to modify organisms depending on the properties of the organism itself and the end goal. Some of these methods involve directly making changes at the level of genetic code. Others may involve placing organisms in environments that select for functions linked to genetic changes.

"Gain of function can occur in an organism in either nature or the laboratory. Some lab examples include creating more salt- and drought-resistant plants or modifying disease vectors to produce mosquitoes that are resistant to transmitting dengue fever. Gain of function can also be useful for environmental reasons, such as modifying E. coli so that it can convert plastic waste into a valuable commodity.". . .

Updated: Alan Dershowitz Sees Sufficient Evidence to Indict Trump in Affidavit


 Alan Dershowitz Sees Sufficient Evidence to Indict Trump in Affidavit (resistthemainstream.org)  "Attorney Alan Dershowitz, who has previously defended former President Donald Trump in public and in the congressional chambers, argued there is enough evidence to indict the former president.

"While discussing revelations from the heavily redacted affidavit released Friday, Dershowitz argued that despite there being enough evidence, prosecutors won’t charge Trump due to precedents he dubbed the “Nixon-Clinton standards.”

" 'There is enough evidence here to indict Trump. But Trump will not be indicted, in my view, because the evidence doesn’t pass what I call the Nixon-Clinton standards,” Dershowitz said during a segment on Hannity.

“ 'The Nixon standard is: The case has to be so overwhelmingly strong that even Republicans support it,” he said. “And the Clinton standard is: Why is this case more serious than Clinton’s case, where there wasn’t a criminal prosecution?”

"Dershowitz cautioned that his assessment could change if redacted portions of the affidavit were revealed to the public, but he underscored that there “should not be an indictment based on what we’ve seen up to now.' ”. . .

California’s Ban of Gas-Powered Vehicles Likely Illegal, Unrealistic –

 


California’s Ban of Gas-Powered Vehicles Likely Illegal, Unrealistic – RedState

. . ."President and CEO of the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, John Bozzella, said:

“Whether or not these requirements are realistic or achievable is directly linked to external factors like inflation, charging and fuel infrastructure, supply chains, labor, critical mineral availability and pricing, and the ongoing semiconductor shortage … These are complex, intertwined and global issues.”

"The Alliance for Automotive Innovation represents major automakers, so Bozzella’s statement should be taken seriously, as he notes that the ban on gas-powered vehicles and mandating people to drive electric vehicles would be “extremely challenging” for the automakers to meet the demands.

"According to the Independent Women’s Forum, banning gas-powered cars is likely unconstitutional. Mandy Gunasekara states:

“First, it could violate the Commerce Clause as it creates unreasonable burdens on interstate commerce, i.e. the manufacture and sale of vehicles. The Supreme Court has long held that the Commerce Clause has been a “self-executing limitation” on the power of States to enact laws which restrict interstate commerce. Second, under the Clean Air Act, California is required to receive a waiver from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in order to set its own, more stringent, emissions standards.”

Billboards in Los Angeles and San Francisco are urging Californians to resist the urge to move to Texas as the state faces an exodus of residents leaving for the Lone Star state.

The billboards use the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, in which 19 school children and two teachers were killed in a mass shooting, as a warning against living in Texas.

“The Texas Miracle Died in Uvalde. Don’t move to Texas,” the billboard in Los Angeles reads, along with the words “Don’t mess with Texas” crossed out in red paint.

Yes, Biden Admin Knew About FBI Probe Into Trump and Pushed It -



The American Spectator | USA News and Politics   "To the casual and credulous observer, the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s house unfolded without any involvement from the Biden White House. That’s the impression Biden’s aides sought to leave after issuing narrow denials of any “prior” knowledge of the raid. But that impression is false, as reporter John Solomon reveals in an article in Just the News. The Biden White House not only knew about the FBI’s probe into Trump but “facilitated it,” writes Solomon.

"He has seen government memos that show the “Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archive to instigate the criminal probe into alleged mishandling of documents, allowing the FBI to review evidence retrieved from Mar-a-Lago this spring and eliminating the 45th president’s claims to executive privilege.”

"So once again Biden has unleashed the FBI on a political opponent. The FBI raid on Trump’s house is a replay of its shockingly specious investigation into Trump–Russia collusion that the Obama–Biden administration approved. One might have thought, given that debacle,  the Biden White House would have wanted to steer clear of yet another partisan FBI fishing expedition. But Biden obviously couldn’t resist making life difficult for his chief political nemesis.". . .

No One Left To Trust  

The Mar-a-Lago raid isn’t the only reason the public has good reason to knock the FBI.

Camerota
. . ."On Thursday, Aug. 18, CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota took off on the odd Republican who mocked the “defund the police” campaign only to embrace going after FBI funding. “The FBI was just doing their job,” she said.

"This narrative rests on two premises:

1.There is no reason to question the FBI, despite its checkered history with Trump. (Pay no attention to the bogus Steele “dossier.”)

2. When Republicans challenge law enforcement, they are hypocrites.

"Let me start with the second point first.

"Conservatives have had issues with federal prosecutorial overreach for decades. It’s not a new thing.". . .

Our universities are ‘woke’ and ‘pointless’

 Institute of Public Affairs’ Bella d’Abrera says our universities have become “woke” and “pointless”.


Ms d’Abrera said discrimination has “no positive outcomes”, as she discussed the ANU’s decision to ban male applications for certain jobs.

“There is a difference between men and women,” she told Sky News Australia.

“This kind of equality of outcomes just will never work.”. . .

Biden Calls on the Mob

How will his speech be remembered in 2024 if one of his deranged followers actually does murder a prominent conservative? Have the Democrats considered that sometimes it’s better to turn down the temperature than to crank it up? Of course not. Once the omelet is done, the broken eggs are of no consequence. 

. . ."In the name of hope and unity he then proceeded to tell the crowd how despicable the MAGA movement is, and that it must be crushed. He didn’t encourage the mob to engage Republicans in debate. He didn’t suggest that they attempt to understand the opposition. He most certainly didn’t recommend addressing any of the grievances of the conservative movement. He incited the crowd to hatred so that MAGA could be crushed -- all 74 million (and growing) of them -- in the name of unity.

"Note what Joe didn’t say in his address to the mob. He didn’t condemn the assassination attempt on a Supreme Court justice. He didn’t share his views about a Democrat that tried to murder an entire Republican softball team. He didn’t even comment about his colleague, Missouri State Democratic senator Maria Chappelle-Nidal who said, “I hope Trump is assassinated.” Those all sound like the hopeful actions of a unifying movement, don’t they? Why no mention of them?". . .

Biden Attacks Millions of Americans Who Support Trump, Descends Into Complete Incoherence

 Asked What He Meant By Calling Republicans “Semi-Fascists,” Joe Biden Smirks…. | Weasel Zippers




. . ."But speaking in front of a rabid partisan group, Biden was unleashed, attacking Americans who had supported Trump accusing them of being hateful, violent, and endangering democracy.

“It’s not hyperbole now you need to vote to literally save democracy again,” Biden told an above-capacity crowd of several thousand at a Democratic National Committee event at Richard Montgomery High School in a Maryland suburb of Washington.

“America must choose. You must choose. Whether our country will move forward or backward,” he said.

“Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice – to go backwards full of anger, violence, hate and division,” he said, while Democrats have chosen to be a nation of unity and hope.

"Biden made it clear he was not just attacking Trump.

“We’re seeing now either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA agenda,” Biden said, referring to former President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. “It’s not just Trump. … It’s almost semi-fascism,” he said.. . .

"Almost semi..."? Joe does have a way with words.

Biden’s Lawless Student-Debt Plan Could Cost over $1 Trillion, Penn-Wharton Study Finds

 


National Review  "An eye-popping analysis just released by Penn-Wharton:

President Biden’s new student loan forgiveness plan includes three major components. We estimate that debt cancellation alone will cost up to $519 billion, with about 75% of the benefit accruing to households making $88,000 or less. Loan forbearance will cost another $16 billion. The new income-driven repayment (IDR) program would cost another $70 billion, increasing the total plan cost to $605 billion under strict “static” assumptions. However, depending on future IDR program details to be released and potential behavioral (i.e., “non-static”) changes, total plan costs could exceed $1 trillion.

"A trillion dollars is an enormous sum of money — it’s more than $6,000 per taxpayer.". . .


Fox News contributor Jones took to Twitter on August 24th regarding Biden’s proposed debt cancellation effort, writing, “I cannot believe I gave two legs for my tuition. What a dope I am. Ooh-rah!”

Is This the Backstabber Behind the Mar-a-Lago Raid?


 Is This the Backstabber Behind the Mar-a-Lago Raid? – PJ Media   "We are at a point in history where the Deep State can blatantly raid the home of the next likely Republican presidential nominee and possibly get away with it. How in the hell did we get here?

"For one, ‘nad-free GOPers don’t raise hell when all hell needs to be raised. We know that Hunter Biden’s laptop was chock full of information evidence that the Biden crime family has been on the take for years. Where were the angry Republicans and their pitchforks? At best, we saw a few of them “demanding answers” when the news cameras were rolling, but otherwise, it’s cricket-city from the people we voted into office.

"If then-president Trump had ordered the FBI to raid the home of Joe Biden over Hunter’s laptop (which would have totally made sense), the Democrats would have exploded. I have my suspicions that our side is afraid to throw down the way the Democrats are happy to do.

"Biden wasn’t afraid to raid Trump’s house because he knew he could do so without facing backlash.

"Now, we may know the reason, or rather the person, behind the raid at Mar-a-Lago: the acting archivist of the United States, Debra Steidel Wall.

"Trump’s lawyers claim they were happy to oblige the National Archives’ request for documents from Mar-a-Lago, but that wasn’t enough for Wall. In a May 10 letter to Trump lawyer Evan Corcoran, Wall wrote the following in regard to Corcoran’s completely legal and understandable question of “protective assertion of executive privilege”: . .

Updated Info: Biden White House facilitated DOJ’s criminal probe against Trump, scuttled privilege claims: memos

Wall

. . ."In the May 10 letter, Wall rejected that claim, writing that Supreme Court precedent “strongly suggests that a former President may not successfully assert executive privilege ‘against the very Executive Branch in whose name the privilege is invoked.’”

Wall added that the Justice Department “has advised me that there is no precedent for an assertion of executive privilege by a former President against an incumbent President to prevent the latter from obtaining … Presidential records belonging to the Federal Government where ‘such records contain information that is needed for the conduct of current business of the incumbent President’s office and that is not otherwise available.’”

“I have therefore decided not to honor the former President’s ‘protective’ claim of privilege,” Wall wrote, after making clear that her letter bore Biden’s imprimatur: “The Counsel to the President has informed me that, in light of the particular circumstances presented here, President Biden defers to my determination, in consultation with the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, regarding whether or not I should uphold the former President’s purported ‘protective assertion of executive privilege.’”

What Would the Devil Have to Do Today to Destroy America?

 

As President Obama used to say of his clownish vice president: "Don't underestimate Joe's ability to f*** things up."

Which brings us to Joe Biden's student loan debt forgiveness rollout, announced this week.

Let's set aside the issue of the legality of the matter.

The actual execution of the matter is Joe in Action.

According to Axios:. . .


What Would the Devil Have to Do Today to Destroy America?

Is Biden even able to bail out student loans?   "As almost everyone has heard, Biden announced his plan to spend $360 billion to forgive student loans for up to 43 million Americans.  Groups estimate that the actual cost may be $440 to $600 billion, but who's counting?". . .

Ashley Biden's Shocking Diary Is Real, Confirming Creepy Joe Biden Allegations

 Ashley Biden's Shocking Diary Is Real, Confirming Creepy Joe Biden Allegations (townhall.com)


  Two Florida residents pleaded guilty to stealing President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley Biden’s diary; and then selling it to the conservative group Project Veritas. 
  Aimee Harris and Robert Kurlander admitted in a New York City federal court to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property involving the theft of personal belongings of an immediate family member of a then-former government official who was a candidate for national political office.
   “Harris and Kurlander stole personal property from an immediate family member of a candidate for national political office… they sold the property to an organization in New York for $40,000 and even returned to take more of the victim’s property when asked to do so.   Harris and Kurlander sought to profit from their theft of another person’s personal property, and they now stand convicted of a federal felony as a result,” Damian Williams, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a statement. 
  The man and woman sold the diary to Project Veritas for $40,000, just prior to the 2020 presidential election. However the conservative organization did not publish anything from the confidential material; and instead handed it over to authorities. 
  Harris and Kurlander had to forfeit the money and will face up to five years in prison. In June of 2020, the pair reportedly found the diary at a half-way home in Delray Beach after Ashley moved to Philadelphia.
   A few months ago, I reported on the shocking details the diary contained about Ashley and Biden’s relationship. 
  According to the diary, Ashley wrote that her father and our president took showers with her when she was young girl, fueling her sex-addiction. 
  Inside a January 2019 diary entry, she wrote “I remember having sex with friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad. . .

Parents of Marine killed in Kabul airport blast last year slam Biden administration for exit chaos

Fathers of Marines killed in Kabul attack rage against Biden (nypost.com) "The fathers of two Marines killed in Thursday’s suicide attack at Kabul’s international airport have expressed outrage at the US government’s handling of the withdrawal of American forces, with one claiming that President Biden “turned his back” on his murdered son.
