So they found yet another trove of classified documents illegally in China Joe’s possession.

It really is a matter of anyone who goes up against Trump wrecks themselves, don’t they? Sure, Biden managed to cheat his way into Trump’s job…but we’re already well past the point that Joe’s reputation has been utterly destroyed because he went up against Trump. Having mountains of classified documents going back at least 15 years when his hack AG went after Trump on a bogus claim of mishandling documents is just the perfect manifestation of karma…and the millionth time the Democrats have proved that whatever they accuse us of, they are guilty of doing.

Personally, I don’t see a nefarious reason on the part of Pudding Brain for having them – whatever those around him might have done with the documents (Hunter would have had to be a saint not to sell them to the highest bidder…and “saintly” isn’t a word I’d use to describe a man suing in court to prevent his illegitimate daughter from using his surname), I think that Joe, himself, kept them because they made him feel important. Biden’s whole career has been a mere series of lies he’s told himself to make out that he’s the hero of the show – the smartest, bravest, most important man. He probably thought it was cool that he could see secret information and just wanted to hang on to it as a talisman of his greatness.

But the real issue is that he really did break the law – just as Hillary did – and we already know that no legal sanction will be applied. It was apparently only in this last couple days that DOJ officials started searching for docs. Until then, they allowed Biden’s personal attorneys to do the searching. This after they raided Melania’s panty drawer searching for secret documents. That is the problem with our society – the double standard. Laws are applied differently depending on how juiced in you are with the Ruling Class. Such a thing is unsustainable.

I wonder how many, besides me, got a feeling of joy in the heart contemplating arresting everyone at WEF and, after confiscating their money, set them to hard labor? It did flash through the mind as I thought about how wicked and corrupt they all are (they literally had to import hookers to keep up with demand in Davos…and we all know that among the “goods” imported were minors)…and just for a moment a flash of justice came to mind. I think that more and more are getting to that…getting, that is, to understand just why the Jacobins did what they did.

Hulu is running a series based upon the entirely bogus 1619 Project materials. They really are determined to get Americans to hate their own nation. And our response must be the ruthless defunding of all Leftist ideology – DeSantis is leading the way on this in Florida. Who controls the schools, controls the future. I’d rather we just abolished the education system…but if we can’t, then we’d better control it and ensure that our beliefs are transmitted to the next generation.

The cops in Atlanta killed a white Antifa criminal and, so, other white Antifa criminals then rioted in black neighborhoods. And, yes, CNN stuck with the “mostly peaceful protest” reporting. Governor Kemp has ordered a crackdown and it seems that even the city government is willing to hit back…but the fracas stared in one of those Antifa “autonomous zones” which emerged in 2020…what in heck is such a thing doing in Georgia in 2023? A state which re-elected its Republican governor by 7.5 percentage points? Why did Kemp allow that thing to continue? Really: in our Red States, we must start insisting that the GOP hammer the Left…we can’t stop Antifa from ruining Portland, but we can sure save Atlanta.

    Biden invited the DOJ to do a complete search of his home to makes sure all docs were returned to the National Archives. Trump REFUSED to give the docs he took to the National Archives, the DOJ or the grand jury. Trump obstructed Justice. Biden facilitated justice.

    • Mark Noonan January 22, 2023 / 7:50 pm

      Dude, the most recently discovered documents are at least 15 years old. He wasn’t cooperating – wasn’t even being slightly helpful. The obvious thing here is that even a cursory GOP House investigation was going uncover the fact that Pudding Brain has sticky fingers around classified docs…this was their means of getting ahead of it.

      Stop defending the indefensible. He wasn’t supposed to have the docs, at all: until 1/20/2021 he never had, even for a second, the authority to declassify like Trump did. He did wrong. Admit it. Just f***ing admit it.

      • casper3031 January 22, 2023 / 9:33 pm

        Actually, he did have the power to declassify documents. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2023/01/17/fact-check-biden-had-authority-declassify-vice-president/11065345002/

        That said, my my question is who is suppose to be tracking these documents and why isn’t it working. There has been no evidence so far that Biden took any documents illegally and the act that he has encouraged the search for documents rather try to hide them would suggest he hasn’t anything to hide.

      • Mark Noonan January 22, 2023 / 10:09 pm

        Son of gun – Barry really did issue that order! Good for you: didn’t cover any documents which went into Biden’s possession prior to 1/20/2009 and an EO isn’t a law – it didn’t change declassification by statute and so whatever power Biden had in that area expired on 1/20/2017 and was only resumed on 1/20/2021.

        Plus, looking at the underlying statute, it isn’t clear that a President has the legal ability to assign a subordinate the President’s plenary declassification authority. The underlying law appears to only give to subordinates the ability to declassify things the subordinate had rated classified.

        Main thing: there is absolutely no doubt that Pudding Brain broke the law prior to 1/20/2009. There is also no doubt that Trump in no way, shape or form broke the law, nor was there any non-cooperation in the return of documents demanded (it is an open question as to whether or not the documents Trump held *must* be returned on demand).

        So, basically, Obama’s Executive fig leaf aside, you’ve got nothing…except that your hero broke the law.

        What do you suggest we do about that?

      • Amazona January 23, 2023 / 12:15 pm

        Whaaaa? You mean the Pen and Phone president couldn’t just override legislated statutes any time he wanted?

        It looks like the American public might be treated to a lesson in law, if this is argued in a hearing. As I understand what you said, if someone with some degree of authority stamps “Classified” on a document he or she can then go back and change this. Or the President can change it But the president can’t just pass this authority off to someone else.

        And I ‘d like to know the context of this EO. What made Obama decide Biden needed the authority to declassify documents? That seems odd. He didn’t like Biden, he didn’t respect Biden, he said there wasn’t anything Biden couldn’t F up—-and then he handed him this huge authority to alter classification of sensitive documents? To the moron who put the lives of Seal Team 6 and their families in danger when he blabbed this confidential information on TV?

        Did the EO go on to ‘splain that once Joe had declassified something it was no longer important and could be handled casually, made available to random druggies and partiers at his house when it was “owned” by Hunter, etc? Or could be made available to China?

        The explanation of the EO actually seems to be digging the hole a little deeper.

      • Mark Noonan January 23, 2023 / 11:07 pm

        It is a very bizarre thing – unprecedented and entirely unnecessary. But let’s pretend for a moment that the EO was legally valid…what our Liberals will then have to admit is that the President has plenary authority in this matter and thus all the documents Trump had were fine.

        Of course, they won’t do that – Trump is the Bad Orange Man, after all! So, they’ll jump through hoops to explain away Pudding Brain will demanding Trump be jailed.

      • Amazona January 23, 2023 / 11:23 pm

        Good pointed questioning can also point out some interesting facets of this. For example, why did Obama decide that one of the first things he would do as president would be to give Joe Biden the authority to classify documents? And, of course, authority to declassify what he classified. As Biden was allegedly “included in a list of “original classification authorities” who else was in that group? And again, why?

        Why would an incoming president give this kind of authority to any group of people? To apply classification status and then remove it? It seems like a very loosey-goosey way to handle classified material. There had to be a reason for this kind of odd decision and I think we should find out what it was. Obama’s disdain for our government doesn’t fully explain this. It looks like a purposeful shell game set up for a specific purpose and we need to know what that purpose was.

        It’s almost as if it was designed to provide cover for the release/leaking of sensitive material.

      • Amazona January 23, 2023 / 12:24 pm

        OK, I went back and read the linked article a little more carefully—something Casper evidently didn’t bother to do. But then, why should he? He had the headline, he had the imprimatur of USA Today, why should he clutter his pudgy little brain with details?

        Well, here’s a detail from the article:

        under a 2009 executive order signed by Obama, the vice president is included in a list of “original classification authorities,” meaning Biden had the power declassify anything he classified.

        The Washington Post also reported vice presidents have the authority to declassify anything they classified.

        So we need to look at every one of those documents and find out who was the original classification authority.

        And then, as I said, find out if changing the classification status changes the importance of the information.

        I also note that the declassification thing is new, and so far has not been put forth as a defense, till a trusted member of the Agenda Media stepped up to try to help out.

      • Amazona January 23, 2023 / 12:44 pm

        Thinking of how much fun a hearing on this could be:

        If the Biden team picks up on the excuse that the documents were no longer classified, this opens the door to the questions and comments made about Trump’s declassification of documents.

        (1) That is, how did he declassify them? When did he do it? Was there a process for doing it? Did he tell anyone he did it? Did he create a paper trail of these decisions or did he just do it “in his mind” (as the hysterics claim Trump says he did). In other words, every single thing the Left has tried to use against Trump should form the framework of the investigation into Biden.

        (2) Why did he do it? That means looking at these documents to determine not only who did the original classification but why? IF Biden was the original classification authority, why did he classify these particular documents? That could be interesting.

        (3) If they are truly not only now declassified but so inconsequential that it didn’t matter who saw them, can we see them?
        …………………..

        I don’t own a single piece of classified information. But I do have information I think is important, so I keep it in locked files. Loan information, title information, deeds, vehicle titles, banking information, credit card information, etc. I don’t dump it into cardboard boxes stacked with other boxes of household odds and ends in a garage or on bookcases in offices where many people have access. And this information relates only to me and my private affairs.

        I think the panicky effort by the obedient little foot soldiers like Casper to find/invent excuses for the way Biden handled these documents is not only feeble, it opens the doors to a lot of corollary questions.

  2. Cluster January 22, 2023 / 3:59 pm

    Casper has his Democrat knee pads on this morning

    Personally, I don’t see a nefarious reason on the part of Pudding Brain for having them –

    Really? I do. Ukraine sent money to Hunter, who sent money to Joe, who then reappropriated more money back to Ukraine. Rinse and repeat. And I am sure a lot of these documents detail just that. Also since these classified docs were scattered about his properties and had been hanging around for over 6 years to which Biden claimed he had no idea they were there, makes this the tip of the greatest scandal in US history. The POTUS is selling our country and it;s natural resources for personal profit. This is a fact and beyond any doubt. This isn’t even close to Trump having a few of his own documents locked in one secure place at a highly secured home.

    It really is mind numbing to see people willfully ignore the blatant lies and corruption. Think: Casper.

    • Amazona January 22, 2023 / 5:23 pm

      Casper has dedicated his entire adult life to fawning approval of everything said and done by his chosen tribe. All he needs to know is who said something or who did something and he immediately knows what he is supposed to “think” about it.

      It’s a simple life, for simple minds.

      Biden is the President of the United States and has been in one office or another for about half a century. But according to Casper, when he suddenly remembered he had a lot of top secret documents he sent his lawyers—who do not have security clearances—-to look for them On Planet Casper, that makes sense. He also ignores other facts, such as that Biden took documents from his days in the Senate, when he had no legal reason to have them. That none othe documents were safely or securely stored. That many were never to be removed from a SCHIF where they could only be examined in the room, under rigid circumstances, on a need to know basis.

      It also looks like subsequent searches were not made at Biden’s request, and there is no evidence that any were.

      The garage papers were in an unsecured building with access by, at the very least, a drug and alcohol addicted son and who knows how many of his equally responsible friends. Not just that, but according to a signed document Hunter owned the house and lived there, so these top secret documents were just dumped in an unsecured unguarded building owned by a junkie. (This junkie was so out of it he said, in the same application, that he (1) owned the building and (2) was paying nearly $50,000 a month to rent it. Exorbitant bogus rent payments are often used to explain large money transfers from illegal activities. So Joe got the money under false pretenses in an effort to hide it, or didn’t get it at all and Hunter just lied again. )

      Trump invited the archivist to come to Mar-A-Lago to go through the documents he had under lock and key in a building guarded by the Secret Service. The archivist took some documents and left the others, merely suggesting an additional lock. Later when other documents were requested Trump had his lawyers enter into discussions with the archive, which were still going on when the raid occurred. Trump always had the authority to declassify any document he wanted, while Biden never had that authority.

      • Amazona January 22, 2023 / 5:32 pm

        Although new evidence—including voicemails proving that Joe Biden was aware of Hunter’s business dealings, new texts indicating that Joe Biden granted permission for certain financial transactions, and new emails showing that Joe Biden agreed to cover more than $800,000 in legal bills relating to those same business dealings—has surfaced, Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to provide any update on the ongoing federal tax and finance investigations into Hunter Biden and has dismissed the need to appoint a special counsel. But now, Republican Rep. James Comer has “accused the Treasury Department of running interference for the White House in an attempt to stymie efforts to investigate both Hunter’s and Joe Biden’s finances.” Comer recently wrote to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, complaining that the Treasury Department is “refusing to release Suspicious Activity Reports connected with Hunter Biden or his family and associates—including the President.”

    Michigan School Board Member Claimed White People Are More Dangerous Than Animals

        You know, it wasn’t that long ago that self-loathing was considered a psychiatric problem. From self-hate based on skin color to being based on nationality to being based on gender, it is still a mental illness. It’s just a mental illness fostered, promoted and celebrated by the Left because it contributes to the destabilization of our culture so necessary for the rise of the Left.

According to officials with the King County Medical Examiner’s Office, the department is struggling to keep up with the number of incoming bodies as the fentanyl crisis continues and worsens.

    According to emails uncovered from the “Laptop from Hell,” Hunter Biden sent his business partner Devon Archer a very detailed email on Ukraine on April 13, 2014 – just one week before Joe Biden visited Ukraine to meet with then-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

    “A curiously well-informed email about Ukraine, Russia and the UK on Hunter Biden’s laptop is a thread that links the President’s classified documents scandal to the Delaware federal investigation into his son’s foreign business dealings.” – the New York Post’s Miranda Devine wrote.

        On April 16, 2014, Vice President Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon
        Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon
        after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.”
        The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma. Six days later, on April
        28, British officials seized $23 million from the London bank accounts of Burisma’s owner,
        Mykola Zlochevsky. Fourteen days later, on May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma,
        and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid
        millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board.

        ……………………………………

        During the Obama administration, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States
        (CFIUS) approved a transaction that gave control over Henniges, an American maker of antivibration technologies with military applications, to a Chinese government-owned aviation
        company and a China-based investment firm with established ties to the Chinese government.
        One of the companies involved in the Henniges transaction was a billion-dollar private
        investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR). BHR was formed in November 2013 by a
        merger between the Chinese-government-linked firm Bohai Capital and a company named
        Rosemont Seneca Partners. Rosemont Seneca was formed in 2009 by Hunter Biden, the son of
        then-Vice President Joe Biden, by Chris Heinz, the stepson of former Secretary of State John
        Kerry, and others.

        The direct involvement of Hunter Biden and Heinz in the acquisition of Henniges by the
        Chinese government creates a potential conflict of interest. Both are directly related to highranking Obama administration officials. The Department of State, then under Mr. Kerry’s
        leadership, is also a CFIUS member and played a direct role in the decision to approve the Henniges transaction. The appearance of a potential conflict of interest in this case was particularly troubling given Hunter Biden’s history of investing in and collaborating with Chinese companies, including at least one that clearly poses significant national security concerns. This history with China precedes and follows the 2015 Henniges transaction. This report will discuss Hunter Biden’s and Devon Archer’s corporate entities and their links to the communist Chinese government in more detail.

        …………………………………………

        In 2016, Ukraine’s top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, had an active and ongoing
        investigation into Burisma and its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky.

        At the time, Archer and Hunter Biden continued to serve on Burisma’s board of directors. According to news reports, then-Vice President Biden “threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss [Shokin].”

        After that threat, Ukraine’s Parliament fired Shokin.

        Lots of good stuff in this report including about Kerry

    This is a very important article.

    “Alongside heads of state from all over the world, the CEOs of Amazon, BlackRock, JPMorgan Chase, Pfizer and Moderna will gather, as will the President of the European Commission, the IMF’s Managing Director, the secretary general of Nato, the chiefs of the FBI and MI6, the publisher of The New York Times, and, of course, the event’s infamous host — founder and chairman of the WEF, Klaus Schwab …

    Founded in 1971 … the WEF is ‘committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation,’ also known as multistakeholder governance.

    The idea is that global decision-making should not be left to governments and nation-states — as in the post-war multilateralist framework enshrined in the United Nations — but should involve a whole range of non-government stakeholders: civil society bodies, academic experts, media personalities and, most important, multinational corporations

    Media personalities? Academic experts? Multinational corporations? These are who should be in charge of “global decision-making” and not “governments and nation-states”?

    This is truly scary stuff. Read the whole article. This is a Dr. Mercola article so it may be taken down.

      This is the push for one world government, and the Democrat Party is on board and more than willing to sell our country out to them. When Obama talked about the “fundamental transformation” of our country … this is what he was referring to, and IMHO, Sept. 11, 2001 was the first impetus needed to empower the domestic security state (I believe the Bush’s were supportive of this too) – which has now turned it’s attention towards Americans and not foreign adversaries. It is scary stuff and the US Government is not our ally. I posited the question earlier – Why is Chris Wray at Davos? This should alarm every American. Thank God we have guns. We will need them.

    Does the mug shots of the arrested Antifa rioters look like the face of White Supremacy?? I think it does.

    • Amazona January 24, 2023 / 1:47 pm

      I’m wondering if the constant howling about “White Supremacy” might morph into an Unintended Consequence. That is, the incessant linking of the words “white” and “supremacist” is starting to sound like a claim that whites are superior.

      Link this to mug shots of thugs, mass murderers and professional rioters and the Left might be inadvertently creating an image it won’t like.

        The constant pandering to the “Black community” by Democrats leads to no other explanation than that Democrats truly do believe that black people are inferior. I want to know why. Is it strictly for political leverage? Or are white Democrats supremacists?

    Former Russiagate Investigator Charged over Ties to Russian Oligarch

    “In 2016, when reports surfaced that Russia had hacked the email system of the Democratic National Committee, McGonigal was serving as chief of the cybercrimes section at FBI headquarters in Washington. In that capacity, he was one of the first officials to learn that a Trump campaign official had bragged that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton, sparking the investigation known as Operation Crossfire Hurricane,” Business Insider reported. “Later that year, FBI Director James Comey promoted McGonigal to oversee counterintelligence operations in New York.”

    Talk about having the wrong people in place to investigate. You can bet there are lots of guilty people who do anything to deflect incrimination, including throwing innocent people under the bus. The penalty for such treason should be far harsher than what would ordinarily be allowed under the law. The day of reckoning will happen whether in this life or the next. You can be sure it will be FAR worse if left to the next life, not that it will be of condolence to those who suffer from these atrocities.

      Ummm..The Russians had been paying to play with Hillary as Secretary of State for years. OF COURSE they had dirt on her. This could not have been a surprise to anyone. Between backroom deals of trading influence for “donations” and “speaking fees” and the possession of supposedly classified and top secret documents lifted from her insecure and illegal server, the Russians had plenty of dirt on Hillary and anyone with even a peripheral relationship to DC politics had to know this.

      Using this to support a counter-investigation into Trump is transparently thin. They just wanted to play typical Dem Dirty Tricks and they got caught, and retroactively tried to come up with an excuse.

    Harley–Davidson Goes Woke, Plans to Phase Out Gas-Powered Bikes

    I chuckle when I think about bad-ass bikers trying to rev their engines with these rather quiet electric bikes while at a stop. It will look quite ridiculous. I can understand the possibility of introducing an electric bike or two over the next several years given the trend, but it seems making this kind of announcement in advance just removes incentive for people to want to be owners. The boards of these companies that allow their companies to take a path that will generate negative impact deserve what the get. But hey, those woke individuals in charge of these corporations aren’t too bright anyway.

    • Amazona January 24, 2023 / 4:36 pm

      I think the target market for Harley-Davidson has shifted from bad-ass bikers to stockbrokers who haul their shiny new bikes to Sturgis in expensive trailers so they can cruise the last few miles on two wheels and act all bad-ass without getting, you know, all dirty and stuff. So little electric motors humming along will fit right in with the new suburban market. And I’m sure they will have extended range compared to cars, and seldom be ridden in really cold weather or asked to pull trailers or carry heavy loads. If there is any vehicle that makes electric power make sense it is a motorcycle.

      It makes more sense than a company like Ford shifting to electric. That’s just plain dumb. I have a hard time believing they are serious, and not just doing some virtue posturing to appease the truck-haters. Did you read the reviews of the Ford electric pickup? Ouch.

      Aside from Urban Cowboy posturing, pickups are popular for specific reasons, and none of those fit into the restrictions of EV vehicles. They haul heavy loads over long distances, often in harsh weather conditions, and they pull heavy trailers. And Urban Cowboys want to play cowboy, not urban preppie. I think it would be pretty hard to carry off a macho vibe pulling up next to an F-350 long bed Power Stroke in a whiny little EV pickup that can’t do very much.

        I’m not sure if many of you have noticed, but a lot teams in the NFL (including my 49ers), are no longer virtue signaling on their helmets. Gone are the “BLM”, “End Racism”, etc. slogans on their helmets and from the field. This is because the NFL is realizing that their consumer doesn’t like that bullshit. Harley-Davidson is making a colossal mistake. Their consumers are some of the most bad ass people on the planet who worship their freedom. How Harley-Davidson doesn’t understand that boggles the mind. Turning their hogs into prius’s will be the end of Harley.

    Concerns and controversy are swirling around the decision by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to alter an electrocardiogram test limit for pilots.

    A researcher for an aviation advocacy group, US Freedom Flyers (USFF), stumbled upon the EKG change in December, several weeks after the FAA enacted it.

    Because the revision was made without a published explanation, USFF turned to a nationally known cardiologist and other experts to assess its importance.

    They say the FAA’s change involving “the PR interval” is significant. The PR interval represents the time it takes for an electrical impulse to travel from one part of the heart to another. It is an indicator of heart health.

    But “the new normal” PR interval that the FAA set for pilots is 50 percent longer than the previous limit; it deviates from a long-accepted limit in cardiology.
    ………….

    On an EKG reading, the PR interval indicates how well electrical impulses travel within the heart, “so the whole heart can contract at once,” cardiologist Dr. Thomas Levy, who serves as USFF’s medical adviser, told The Epoch Times.

    A PR interval longer than 200 milliseconds (ms) is considered a red flag, said Florida-based Levy. Such a reading, by itself, doesn’t prove there is a heart problem.

    Yet a reading above 200 ms does warrant further testing and “shouldn’t be ignored,” Levy said. That has been a given in cardiology for almost as long as EKGs have been used, Levy said.

    That’s why, in Levy’s view, it makes no sense for the FAA to broaden the range significantly. Pilots with PR intervals longer than 200 ms used to require further evaluation. Now that happens when the pilots’ PR readings go beyond 300 ms.

    Dr. Peter Chambers, a retired U.S. military Special Operations flight surgeon, agrees it was unwise for the FAA to change the PR interval limit.

    “That removes the ‘safety zone’ that allows us to catch the problem early,” Chambers told The Epoch Times in an interview. “It’s like coming up on an intersection where the traffic light goes directly from green to red–and you’re in the center of the intersection, facing a semi that could hit you.

    Are we supposed to not consider a link between airlines mandating the “vaccines” and a sudden change in standards for heart health?

    • jdge1 January 24, 2023 / 5:08 pm

      With the FAA pushing for single pilot acceptances where dual pilots are currently required, due to a growing understaffing problem, it sure seems to be the perfect storm of unintended consequences (of course unless your purpose is to reduce the population). At least now when a pilot has a heart attack during midflight, the second in command can take charge. With only one pilot there’s little chance of survival of anyone on the plane.

      • Amazona January 24, 2023 / 8:22 pm

        On the other hand, Frontier is breaking new ground by hiring pilots who don’t know how to fly.

        It’s a model that has worked pretty well for the military, training people to be pilots instead of looking for pilots with experience, but I still wonder how I would feel at having two pilots in a cockpit with a total of five years of experience between them.

        Hopefully they won’t have government-induced heart problems

      At some point a federal level court will be forced to deal with these ongoing allegations of voter fraud. It will not go away on its own and to allow it to continue by using really stupid excuses like, “lack of standing”, will eventually place the members of the courts in the column of “corruption” themselves. The courts have a small window of time to address this, force it out into the open and allow us to 1.) Create safeguards against the problems, and 2.) Punish those involved. If they do not take the initiative now, it will most certainly haunt them with more severe consequences.

    • Mark Noonan January 24, 2023 / 11:26 pm

    Feds Destroyed a Cancer Lab, and How the Owner is Fighting Back

    This is the technological version of mob protection for small local businesses, but with the added incrimination of federal government involvement. This, along with a considerable amount of other examples, is why the federal government must be pared down, and strong consideration given to elimination of certain departments. Until indictments and severe penalties are handed out, this will continue. I can’t imagine being the target of such illegal actions by those in collusion with the government.

    ‘Inhaled’ version of COVID vaccine set to enter second phase of human trials in Canada

    In case you thought you were able to choose to NOT get the jab, I’ve little doubt there will be a concerted effort to use its aerosol version to gain compliance. That is, if you’re not already unknowingly infected by the mRNA technology due to transference from people who willingly accepted the jab. Governments have a long history of using their own population for hidden experimentation and elimination. Based on the unprecedented pressure pushed from multiple angles to get people to take the experimental jab, does anyone doubt the evil that exist among us?

      Perhaps if the House were to start a serious investigation into vax injuries and another into the complicity of the government in forcing people to take these experimental drugs while at the same time providing legal cover for the drug companies by allowing them to continue indefinitely under Emergency Use Authorization it would at least slow down this juggernaut of assault on the population.

    • Amazona January 25, 2023 / 12:42 pm

      The Nuremberg Code regarding the use of experimental drugs and techniques:

      1.The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

      This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

      Yet millions of people have been forced or coerced into taking an experimental drug after being told it has been fully tested and approved, not only without information of “the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment” but, rather, after being assured that there are NO ill effects from the drug and that it is “perfectly safe”.

    Classified documents found at Mike Pence’s Indiana home

    Not sure anyone will be surprised. Wanna bet classified documents would also be found in Obama & both Clinton’s personal possession? It seems the handling of classified and top-secret documents is far less than exemplary and more like checking out a library book. With such careless oversight it’s a surprise we have any national secrets.

      I started to think, back when Hillary’s illegal server was found and nobody seemed to think it was a big deal, that we need to tighten up our attitude toward “classified” and “secret” and “top secret” documents. These days it’s even clearer that no one seems to take any of this seriously.

      One thing that has come out is that there is apparently quite a list of people who can apply these labels—-and since January of 2009, according to TOWHABWF, they can then declassify the documents they classified. This seems like a pretty casual approach to what ought to be serious business.

      The rule on SCIFs is that only certain people can enter, no phones or electronics are allowed to preserve confidentiality and secrecy, anyone entering has to prove identity and a reason to be there, and documents in a SCIF cannot be removed. Pretty good rules, except that they seem to be broken without anyone caring. Joe Biden just walked off with SCIF-marked documents and no one seemed to notice.

      It looks like we need to tighten up the guidelines and the rules, and we need to prosecute blatant violations like Hillary’s. A law without a penalty is the same thing as no law at all.

    Ex-gay threatened with jail time, fines for testifying about leaving homosexuality

    The irony is staggering. The LGBT community and those acting in support of such practices pushed hard for acceptance (actually demanded everyone else change to recognize what they do as “normal”), to be able to “come out” with fear of reprisal. Now these same groups want to prosecute people who change directions about those lifestyles, thereby forcing them back into the closet? Are they really that insecure, that evil? Seems so. Civil rights activist should be up in arms that such basic personal choice rights, freedom of expression and religion, would be jeopardized. Satan is doing all the damage he can, as fast as he can. With the elder generation slowly dying off (at least they were until covid & jab entered the scene), and young children being indoctrinated, the moral compass of societies is being lost. If ever there was a time for courageous people to stand up against such evil, it’s now.
