Let’s do it right.

Let’s let Jesse Waters take it for a moment.

Why does everything that the Democrats attach themselves to as regards Donald Trump or for that matter anything that threatens Democrat party power, end up being pure fabrication?

The most egregious incidence of these has been with regards to Donald Trump. The Hillary Clinton paid for Steele dossier being only one of many instances. But of course, Trump isn’t alone here.

Let’s talk about Jussie Smollett. Let’s talk about Anita Hill. Let’s talk about Christine Blasey Ford. Let’s talk about Bill Clinton and the burning churches that never happened. For that matter he never had sex with that woman the Blue dress not withstanding. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and so on. The list just keeps growing and growing and growing.

Admittedly, not all of these ploys have been successful, but in all too many cases they have been despite the ploys being exposed as outright falsehoods.

It would be easiest to just say that the lot of them are congenital liars, and you’d probably be better than half right in saying so.

But, let’s just concentrate on the few instances listed above. And every one of those cases, the Democrats were desperate to create a storyline that would help keep them in the good graces of the American people and therefore in power.

In every case, the story we were told turned out to stable carpeting.

The pattern on this stuff has become so clear that even rank and file Democrats have had enough and are walking away from the party by the score. Notice please that’s going to provided is to the PBS website and taken from an AP feed. If AP and PBS are saying 1 million voters of walked away from the Democrats, it’s a lead pipe sinch that the numbers are significantly higher.

So then we come to our dear Cassidy.

One of the oldest cliches in the book is that when you’re in a hole, stop digging. Given the sheer fabrication that Adam Schiff and his buddies on the j6 committee have come up with, it appears they haven’t learned that lesson the testimony given was so riddled with lies that even the secret service has taken the unusual step of releasing a statement saying that her testimony was untrue and offering at the agents who were in the car at the time has witnesses to that effect.

As Waters wonders, do you suppose Adam Schiff will let them testify? No, you and I both know that would be considered by the Democrats to be counterproductive to the all-important Democrat narrative. But it’s clear the American people know what happened under reacting accordingly.

As it stands right now a rather large majority of Americans disapprove of what the Democrats have been doing if the polls are to be trusted. This would include believe it or not, 78% of Democrats. And those numbers are growing to the point where the mainstream media who has been forever in the Democrat parties pocket, can’t cover them up anymore.

It’s clear that Democrat party knows they’re in trouble, electorally speaking. So, when lies stop working, tyrants tend toward force. We are starting to see what can only be termed political arrests, where opponents of the Democrat party are being arrested for opposing the Democrat party. Apparently if convincing the American public to vote for them because their policies are actually working and the American public finds it pleasing, they’ll go for intimidation.

Here’s the situation in a nutshell. When trying to engender hatred against freedom doesn’t work tyrannical leaders start telling lies. When the lies stop working, tyrants start using force. And that’s precisely what’s happening here.

It’s not like we didn’t tell you all this was going to happen.

Biden claims that inflation is worse worldwide. He says rates are lower here than anywhere else in the world! He bragged about this in front of G7 countries. But the truth is we have the highest rates of the G7…we are doing better than Venezuela though

The Washington Free beacon reports

As part of a Democrat-led effort to “better understand the role and potential dangers of firearms,” California inadvertently leaked private information about every concealed-carry permit holder in the state.

Leaving aside the idea that as usual the left is going after the wrong target, I would put this into the same class as leaking a Supreme Court ruling. Go ahead and tell me how they’re not coming for our firearms.

I can save California a few million dollars on this bogus study. Let’s apply a little logic here:

If legal gun owners were as much of a problem as the gun grabbers in California are trying to tell us, why are those gun grabbers still alive after this one?

Addendum.

I’ll add this for your entertainment:

CA DOJ’s CCW Permit Holder Data Breach is Worse than Previously Expected

On Wednesday, the California Department of Justice issued a press release outlining preliminary details of its investigation. The first paragraph describes the type of personal information that was exposed. Some of which came as a surprise to us at the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Wednesday, June 29, 2022
Contact: (916) 210-6000, [email protected]

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Justice has announced that personal information was disclosed in connection with the June 27, 2022 update of its Firearms Dashboard Portal. Based on the Department’s current investigation, the incident exposed the personal information of individuals who were granted or denied a concealed and carry weapons (CCW) permit between 2011-2021. Information exposed included names, date of birth, gender, race, driver’s license number, addresses, and criminal history. Social Security numbers or any financial information were not disclosed as a result of this event. Additionally, data from the following dashboards were also impacted: Assault Weapon Registry, Handguns Certified for Sale, Dealer Record of Sale, Firearm Certificate Safety, and Gun Violence Restraining Order dashboards. DOJ is investigating the extent to which any personally identifiable information could have been exposed from those dashboards and will report additional information as soon as confirmed.

“This unauthorized release of personal information is unacceptable and falls far short of my expectations for this department,” said Attorney General Rob Bonta. “I immediately launched an investigation into how this occurred at the California Department of Justice and will take strong corrective measures where necessary. The California Department of Justice is entrusted to protect Californians and their data. We acknowledge the stress this may cause those individuals whose information was exposed. I am deeply disturbed and angered.”

On the afternoon of June 27, 2022, DOJ posted updates to the Firearms Dashboard Portal. DOJ was made aware of a disclosure of personal information that was accessible in a spreadsheet on the portal. After DOJ learned of the data exposure, the department took steps to remove the information from public view and shut down the Firearms Dashboard yesterday morning. The dashboard and data were available for less than 24 hours.

In the coming days, the Department will notify those individuals whose data was exposed and provide additional information and resources. California law requires a business or state agency to notify any California resident whose unencrypted personal information, as defined, was acquired, or reasonably believed to have been acquired, by an unauthorized person.

DOJ asks that anyone who accessed such information respect the privacy of the individuals involved and not share or disseminate any of the personal information. In addition, possession of or use of personal identifying information for an unlawful purpose may be a crime. (See Cal Penal Code Sec. 530.5.)

We are communicating with law enforcement partners throughout the state. In collaboration, we will provide support to those whose information has been exposed.

In an abundance of caution, the Department of Justice will provide credit monitoring services for individuals whose data was exposed as a result of this incident. DOJ will directly contact individuals who have been impacted by this incident and will provide instructions to sign up for this service.

Any Californian may take the following steps to immediately protect their information related to credit:

• Monitor your credit. One of the best ways to protect yourself from identity theft is to monitor your credit history. To obtain free copies of your credit reports from the three major credit bureaus go to https://www.annualcreditreport.com.
• Consider placing a free credit freeze on your credit report. Identity thieves will not be able to open a new credit account in your name while the freeze is in place. You can place a credit freeze by contacting each of the three major credit bureaus:
o Equifax: https://www.equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services/credit-freeze/; 888-766-0008
o Experian: https://www.experian.com/freeze/center.html; 888-397-3742
o TransUnion: https://www.transunion.com/credit-freeze; 800-680-7289
• Place a fraud alert on your credit report. A fraud alert helps protect you against the possibility of someone opening new credit accounts in your name. A fraud alert lasts 90 days and can be renewed. To post a fraud alert on your credit file, you must contact one of the three major credit reporting agencies listed above. Keep in mind that if place a fraud alert with any one of the three major credit reporting agencies, the alert will be automatically added by the other two agencies as well.
• Additional Resources. If you are a victim of identity theft, contact your local police department or sheriff’s office right away. You may also report identity theft and generate a recovery plan using the Federal Trade Commission’s website at identitytheft.gov. For more information and resources visit the Attorney General’s website at oag.ca.gov/idtheft.

Forget the disclaimers, this Is The New normal.

This is just a reminder that we never did solve these mysteries.



Eleven microbiologists mysteriously dead over the span of just five months. Some of them world leaders in developing weapons-grade biological plagues. Others the best in figuring out how to stop millions from dying because of biological weapons. Still others, experts in the theory of bioterrorism.
The listing of the specific deaths is very complete and somewhat varied. But the time frame involved is what I’m looking at, here.

2002.


Remember, this is about the time that our CIA was telling us that Saddam Hussein still possessed wmd in the form of biological weapons.

Then we saw pictures of a long line of trucks leaving Iraq headed for Syria just before Hussain commenced with his dirt nap. And of course at that point the Kurds were dropping like flies, or with flies, or something.

The obvious question, are these events somehow connected?

And just for giggles, let’s add the SARS virus, and covid-19. Are these also related to these mysterious deaths back in 2002?

I don’t know the answers to any of this, but that’s pretty much the point. It’s disturbing that we don’t know what happened, and who was responsible.

* With the discussion we had yesterday in mind about the left and it’s overt racism, comes the idea that they haven’t changed over the years nearly as much as they’d like us to believe. In fact had in reality they haven’t changed at all except these days they’ll increasing allegiance to Karl Marx. The party of change, it seems, is not itself willing to change. They do, however want to change you to be there politically.

* We can get leaked documents from the Supreme Court but for some strange reason we can’t see The client list in the Maxwell case.

* Personally I think this is a record for a narrative falling apart. The latest testimony that the Democrats could you should pardon the expression, Trump up, blew up before the echo died. Cassidy Hutchinson is a flat-out liar, in a rather long line of them. There’s no other conclusion to draw.

“He lunged for the steering wheel.”

Are you kidding me?

I know gymnasts who couldn’t make that one. Sorry, I’m not buying it. The whole thing was a fake. No wonder the Democrats aren’t allowing cross-examination of these witnesses. They’d never survive.

Greg Gutfeld gets this one precisely correct.

Eric Florack on June 29th, 2022
Perhaps you haven’t noticed the attacks on Clarence Thomas mounting since Donbs came out.

David Catron has, and over at The American Spectator says:

Progressives like nothing better than to lecture conservatives on racism, accusing us of reveling in white privilege and voting Republican due to a deeply held aversion to people of color. They have, of course, absolved themselves of all sins racial by claiming to be “woke.” But the mendacity of that pose has been laid bare by the barrage of openly racist attacks on Clarence Thomas pursuant to last week’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Justice Samuel Alito authored the ruling, and it was supported by a majority of the Court, but progressive rage has focused on Thomas.

And it hasn’t been subtle. Social media contained countless attacks on Justice Thomas that prominently featured the “N-word.” These verbal assaults have by no means been limited to anonymous trolls. The Post Millennial reports that lily-white pollster John Corbett tweeted, “Clarence Thomas: Just another dumb field n*gger.” Nor have Democratic luminaries failed to pile on. Hillary Clinton appeared on “CBS This Morning” to denounce Thomas: “I went to law school with him. He’s been a person of grievance for as long as I have known him.”Newsweek columnist Darvio Morrow explains why white progressives always talk like this:

Many of these people do not view Black people as e
quals but as tools that give credibility and moral authority to their ideology. Many white progressives view themselves as the “savior” of Black people, and as a result, they unconsciously believe we owe them our undying loyalty. That’s why when anyone crosses them, they attack with a particular level of venom. And it’s not just Black Republicans who they come for. White progressives will attack moderate Black Democrats too when they “get out of line.”

The emphasis is mine.

Recall, please, that I made the same argument as regards Bill Cosby:

Now some I have spoken to on this subject, have correctly pointed out that the accusations have been floating around for about 10 years now. And some of the cases where that came up it’s still a little on the late side to be reporting it. That said, that 10 year period would seem to coincide with when Bill Cosby started getting vocal about the race baiting industry in this country the Jesse Jacksons the Al Sharptons and so on.

So actually the timing of the accusations starting to fly, matches rather nicely.

I submit that this is payback for having gone after the race baiting industry as he has famously done. Occum’s straight razor would seem to apply to this situation very nicely.

And since it took that Steamroller 10 years to get moving, it brings a couple of other points that we should look at.

An example is harder to create a martyr is. But the effect is pretty much the same in opposite ways . And as we have discovered in neither case is the truth a requirement. All that’s required is continuous repetition . To create a bad example one has to spend literally decades tarring the name of the chosen example as being a bad person. Rumors have to fly, innuendo, and so on. And think of it this way, with him being 77 he’s probably not going to be around for a whole bunch more. He will never be able to get his reputation back since it took 10 years to get this steamroller moving. Such things invariably take much longer to stop than to start, long as they took to start to begin with.

This situation will keep a number of other people from speaking out. And that, is the intent.

Make no mistake, his being a black man who the majority of America actually likes, has a direct connection with him being torn down as he’s being now.

Here’s another thought……

Postulate that as opposed to the upstanding man is that he has seemed to have been all these years Cosby was rather a race baiter like Sharpton. I submit to you that in that case, these situations would have been called bimbo eruptions and they would have been summarily laughed off. See also, Bill Clinton our first black president. Get the picture?

In both cases, Cosby and now Justice Thomas, these well-known black individuals were giving the progressives fits.

They were no longer under progressive control and were speaking their minds and I believe speaking the truth before the weight of “progressive Justice” landed on them. Put more correctly, the weight of supposed “progressive Justice” containing their racial slurs, landed on them because they were speaking the truth.

I’ll give you a third example. Candice Owens, whom we will doubtless be discussing as the summer progresses. I could go on all day with various names that have been subjected to this treatment by the left, but let’s not get distracted.

I maintain to this day, that the prosecution of Cosby was a political act aimed at silencing someone who was operating outside of , and was therefore an impediment to, the leftist narrative. Whether he was guilty or not does not impact this discussion. If he hadn’t been threatening the leftist narrative, Democrats would defend him to the death. We’ve all seen it before.

And now with the duplication in the effort against Justice Thomas, my thought about Cosby is confirmed, and we have a pattern with which to judge the situation. Can’t have black people leaving the leftist plantation.

Democrats claim to be for equality, but let somebody start speaking for themselves and actually thinking for themselves, and things get ugly. Democrat chat rooms start sounding like the unreconstructed South. Which, I note, was run by Democrats back in the day.

The primary goal in these reactions is an attempt to maintain utter control over these uppity minorities. Can’t have them thinking on their own. If they ever get off the plantation, Democrats will lose their political power. That’s the motivation for what we see here. And there’s only one word for it:

Racism.

Nothing to see here, citizen. Move along.

Michael Stenger, the Senate sergeant at arms during the January 2021 Capitol riot, has died, FoxNews confirmed.
How very convenient.

Apparently somebody’s learned the lesson from the Clintons, very well indeed.

And isn’t it interesting that Stalinist show trial didn’t bother asking him to testify?

Notice that the source for the story is the New York Times

Eric Florack on June 28th, 2022
You know if this happened more often, it would happen less often.

ABC’s The View will compose a written apology to Kyle Rittenhouse and his mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, and deliver it along with a check for $22 million. The Rittenhouse’s spokesman, Joe Barron, says the settlement didn’t take long and “wasn’t very difficult.”

Apparently, the show’s producers have been eager to settle the matter to get them away from all the bad press. In the past few months, story after story about Whoopi Goldberg’s suspensions and firings along with reports of more than 11 lawsuits filed have the show’s team wondering if it was worth it at all.

Really, I’d like to see this happen more often. Hit them back and hit them harder. Eventually, it’ll sink in.

Matt Margolis has a good report up on the most recent ruling by the New York state supreme court. The ruling is that non-citizens cannot vote in local elections.

Now of course comes the problem of being able to prove that they are not citizens.

Voter id, anyone?

From Red State

The real question is: Why did Democrats think abortion would be their saving grace in the first place? The Dobbs decision leaked two months ago. If anything, Republicans have gained ground over that time. The fact that the decision is doubly official now is not going to do anything to change the national landscape. In fact, I think the radicalism of the progressive left getting laid bare on abortion could actually alienate some voters. They aren’t out there talking “safe, legal, and rare” anymore. It’s abortion through birth, and relatively few Americans support that.

In the end, Democrats are staring into the abyss, and their big solution is to douse themselves in gasoline near an open flame. They’ve got no good options, they know they have no good options, and they are going to ride their fractured base to total defeat in a few months.

Based on the polling numbers, that’s probably true.

The answer to the question of course is that they simply don’t have anything else to go with. Their performance in the areas where Americans are really concerned about has been and continues to be horrible, and the polling numbers reflect that.

And by the way it’s actually worse than that. CBS polling has been invariably kind to the Democrats over the last 40 years or so, and for the Democrats in general and Biden in particular to have dropped to a new low is at least noteworthy, as RedState suggests.

The reason for the drop?

Heh.

I believe it was James Carville who once intoned “it’s the economy, stupid.”

So is it stands now the polling has it that Democrat numbers are just about two points above that of diarrhea. Of course, one problem with polls, is that they tend not to count illegal aliens. Given the desperation we’re seeing just now, it might be worthwhile keeping an eye on that factor going forward.

I have my problems with Bill Barr but this isn’t one of them:


During his segment on Saturday, Barr told the audience about what he believed was a threat to the entire western world: the U.S. public school system — which seeks to control how children are raised while creating a hostile environment for traditional religion, The Federalist reported.

The former attorney general has argued that for years, America’s unique self-government system cannot exist without traditional religion — an argument that closely aligns with the words of the second U.S. President John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Indeed so. As I said myself, just a year ago:

Every culture in history has a religion atits philosophical root.. The most successful cultures in history have had the today of Christian ethic as their philosophical root. America could not have been created with Islam, atheism, or any of the pantheistic religions as their root. Again, the degree to which we have gotten into problems is directly linked to our abandonment of that premise.

Eric Florack on June 27th, 2022
Somehow I don’t think the left is going to like this very much.
