Real threats to democracy.

Real threats to democracy.
"A lot of what's coming out now is the reason I resigned shortly there after winning the election that we fought so hard to win," said Webb.

As most decent people already know it is the American left and the Trump haters who are a clear threat to American democracy. They twist American law to achieve their ends, they weaponize government to go after all their perceived enemies, they indoctrinate our children and they have even defamed the SCOTUS.

The latest chapter in the nonstop march of evil comes from the ultra-liberal "city" of Oakland CA. There even the citizens who have elected some of the most radical democrats to office are now trying to recall their out-of-control mayor: Sheng Thao. Her home (or is it her home?) was raided by the FBI Thursday. While the politicized FBI has yet to link Ms Thao to any wrongdoing, Renia Webb, a former confidante and chief of staff for the mayor has come forward concerning pay-to-play allegations. It is very risky to be a whistleblower against democrats these days. Webb says that a lot of what is finally coming out is why she resigned. Really?

You would have thought she would have resigned over policy:

Robberies grew 38% last year in Oakland, according to  police data.  Burglaries increased 23%. Motor vehicle theft jumped 44%. Roughly one of every 30 Oakland residents had a car stolen last year, according to a San Francisco Chronicle  analysis .

On Tuesday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced he was taking action, deploying 120 California Highway Patrol officers to Oakland and the surrounding area to conduct a law enforcement surge operation. The aim: to crack down on crime, including vehicle theft, retail theft and violent crime.

Rising crime risks turning Oakland into a ‘ghost town.’ Newsom is sending in reinforcements | CNN Business

When the likes of Newson wants action, you know there is a serious crime problem. On the other hand, the democrat citizens of Oakland voted for Thao.

When will they have enough?


In other news:

Gunmen attacked synagogues and churches in two cities in southern Russia. They used rifles and Molotov cocktails.  The attackers killed police officers and a priest. Six of the gunmen died in shootouts, officials said.

Benjamin Netanyahu, in a television interview, said that the intensive phase of Israel’s war against Hamas would end soon.

Israel bombed a UN compound near Gaza City, killing at least eight people, a Palestinian news agency said. The Israeli military said militants were using the compound, which Hamas has denied.

The Manhattan district attorney declined to prosecute most of the protesters charged with taking over a Columbia University Hall, citing a lack of evidence. Many believe the New York judicial system to be a national disgrace.

Many countries in Africa resent France, a former colonial power. Rwanda seems to be a cut above the rest and is embracing French culture and courting French investment.

This week is the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade.  Democrats plan on highlighting the event.

Good morning.

As to our biased media:

A CNN anchor cut off a guest's mic for saying the debate moderators were biased.

Why not just admit the obvious?

Wong.  He was "investigated" because he beat the Democrats at their own game.  Did you forget the open ended "Russia Collusion" hoax they and the liberal bloggers like MSNBC and CNN pushed?  When that failed they concocted fictitious story after fictitious story.

They didn't and you know it

The  FBI  has come under scrutiny after a leaked document showed the bureau warning that "radical traditionalist" Catholics pose as an extremist threat.

Kyle Seraphin, a former FBI special agent and federal whistleblower, obtained the document from the bureau's field office in Richmond, Virginia, and published it on the  UncoveredDC  website. 

The FBI in Richmond discusses monitoring Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists (RMVE) and their interests in so-called "Radical-Traditionalist Catholics" or RTCs.

The memo notes that FBI investigations have found that there is a "growing overlap" between the far-right white nationalist movement and RTCs.

Again they didn't and you know it.

The  FBI  used “threat tags” created by the bureau’s counterterrorism division to launch dozens of investigations into parents who had protested at  school board  meetings, whistleblowers disclosed.

The probes targeted parents who were reported on a new  Justice Department  “snitch line.”

The FBI  investigations included a father opposed to mask mandates and a mother deemed a threat for “owning guns” and belonging to a group called “Moms for Liberty.”

Trump WAS found guilty, it is just that Trump wasn't found guilty of collusion, and the way the story was spun, you would think that zero evidence found , as in none. When actually it was found that Trump and friends LIED, lied about Russian contacts and persons close to Trump were charged. Trump, technically couldn't be.

A federal appeals court partially affirmed a lower court’s finding on Friday that Biden administration officials violated the First Amendment by coercing social media companies to censor speech.

The Fifth Circuit affirmed a lower court’s judgement that the White House, Surgeon General, CDC and FBI violated the First Amendment while finding that “the district court erred in finding that the NIAID Officials, CISA Officials, and State Department Officials likely violated Plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights.” Yet it  found  the injunction,  issued  by District of Louisiana Judge Terry A. Doughty in July, was “vague and broader than necessary.”

As for Tapper & Bash, they have already told everyone how they feel about Trump, so there won't be any surprises there, nor will the tactics of Joe Biden which will amount to him coming out like a jacked up trained seal calling Trump a "convicted felon."

Dont the American people have a right to know that Trump committed the most egregious dereliction of duty by a president in US history? 

On the afternoon of Jan 6th, Trump did not talk to any member of the defense dept or other law enforcement agencies about ending the insurrection/riot, but he did talk to members of Congress about delaying the vote count per the Eastman plan.

That is not true and not worthy of a Presidential debate. No more than all the dirty shit that was done to Trump beginning with the Russia hoax. Don't you want a debate based on substance?

Trump wanted his mob to do whatever they had to do to stall or prevent the electoral count.  He didnt care if it was peaceful or not, as long as it worked. 

After Trump knew that dozens of cops had been injured by his mob, he told the mob in a tweet "remember this day for the rest of your lives". 

He meant that in a positive way (toward the mob) not a negative.

While don't support Trump in any way, it amuses me how the number 34 is so important to some folks as if that was worse than if he had paid back Cohen with one payment and it have been 3 counts.  What's the difference between 3 counts vs 34 when the underlying activity is the same?  11 checks plus 11 vouchers plus 12 book entries vs 1 check, 1 voucher and 1 book entry?

It's called overcharging to get the best chance for the desired outcome for the prosecution, a conviction.  The jury seen this, there was no way they could just pick out one check, voucher, or entry and dismiss the rest when all were considered equal, it would've made no sense, it was guilty of all or none no middle ground.  A wise judge in this position would've demanded the prosecution lump all together or as you put it, into 3 separate charges.  What's the difference between 1 felony or 34 felonies, sensationalism, headlines, campaign ads, and political hit points.

You mean the 34 misdemeanor that were filed AFTER the statute of limitations expired?  And didn't the SCOTUS recently rule that a conviction must come from a UNANIMUS decision by the Jury?  That kind of throws a wrench in the "conviction" you seem so proud of.

I remember something about offering to have NG on stand by.  And wasn't that shot down by the Speaker at the time?  The same Speaker who is on video saying "we should have done more to prevent this". 

But lets forget putting things in place to prevent the protest and focus on fictional shit.

A Jewish mom and her husband were attacked and beaten at a Brooklyn elementary school graduation by an Arabic-speaking   family — who taunted them with shouts of “Free Palestine!” “Gaza is Ours!” and “Death to Israel!” she told The Post.

The mayhem erupted at PS 682 in Gravesend just after the school’s fifth-grade graduation — which was themed, ironically, “All you need is love.”

Instead, the Jewish woman’s husband was thrown to the ground by members of the other family. One man put him in a chokehold, he said. Others grabbed his legs as they kicked and punched him. One woman repeatedly whacked him with the sharp heel of a black stiletto, the mom told police.

Trying to run cover for Biden's disastrous pullout from Afghanistan, he and his CNN show slimed a hero who saved the lives of those Biden put in jeopardy. Now CNN is facing a billion dollar defamation suit at the same time Tapper will be moderating the presidential debate featuring the politician he lied for.

These steak joints in S.

Just because you are willing to bet isn't proof that it happened.

and you are possibly a little low with that $15, 

It is far more likely that I am not, since I got that number from their online menu, but if you have a thing to dispute it, show it, and alert the restaurant they are doing a piss-poor job of editing their online menu.
