Corrupt Media Worse Than Crooked Senators replies
Posted by Garnet 9/25/2023 1:02:42 AM Post Reply
Most voters take for granted that a certain percentage of our elected officials are susceptible to corruption. This is a view we have in common with the Framers of the Constitution, who well understood the temptation political power holds for avaricious politicians. Consequently, most of them would have found the bribery indictment of a New Jersey senator unsurprising and only mildly interesting. They would, however, have been alarmed by the obvious attempt by the corporate media to use the Menendez story to distract public attention from a far more dangerous influence peddling scandal involving the President of the United States.

troubles mount

President Joe Biden has drawn yet another long-shot challenger for 2024, this time a progressive anti-abortion activist who claims the Catholic president no longer stands for the "dignity of unborn children." Activist Terrisa Bukovinac's entrance is the latest challenge to the president's reelection bid, as concerns about Biden's age mount.Many critics of the president believe Biden is too old to run again, and some have criticized his handling of the crisis on the United States's southern border and the economy. But Bukovinac is challenging him on a different matter altogether — the issue of abortion.

Hunter Biden, President Biden's son, must appear in-person for his arraignment on three felony gun charges that is set for Oct. 3, according to a court order issued Wednesday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Christopher Burke of the federal district court in Delaware said in his brief order that the president's son "should not receive special treatment in this manner — absent some unusual circumstances," and therefore must be physically present for his initial appearance and arraignment. Lawyers for Hunter Biden had asked the court to hold the proceeding by video conference, writing in a letter to Burke that the "financial impact on government resources and the logistical burden on the

Merrick Garland is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee. His performance is a tour de force. It is difficult to imagine that anybody has consistently lied to Congress more and gotten away with it. Alejandro Mayorkas is in the running considering the sheer quantity of lies, but Garland beats Mayorkas by a mile when it comes to verbal dancing. Mayorkas is a plodding liar, while Garland is a master sophist, which is why Obama wanted him on the Supreme Court.It’s hard to say which of the two presents a greater danger to America. Mayorkas threatens our economy and our physical security as a nation; Garland wields a dagger that plunges into
Ted Cruz Says Dems Will ‘Parachute’
In Michelle Obama, ‘Jettison’ Joe Biden

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz predicted Monday that the Democratic Party will replace President Joe Biden with former First Lady Michelle Obama in the 2024 presidential election. “Here’s the scenario that I think is perhaps the most likely and most dangerous,” Cruz said on his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast. “In August of 2024, the Democrat kingmakers jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama.”

There is no depth of humiliation that MSM pundits will not endure in order to keep their power and privilege. As I wrote earlier today, the goal of the MSM is to be “truthful, not neutral,” which is sophist-speak for supporting The Narrative™. And the Narrative is forever and always that Democrats are angels and Republicans are devils. Democrats are geniuses and “experts” while Republicans are evil, stupid slavemasters. Democrats tell the truth and Republicans lie.The humiliation is acceptable because it is the humiliation that only courtiers experience–all are slaves in the presence of the Emperor, so none can go any lower. And since courtiers retain their power over the peasants
What We Must Believe To Believe Biden
Is Innocent

It’s hardly a surprise that the corporate media have rushed to the defense of President Biden pursuant to the impeachment inquiry announced last week by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. More surprising is the absurdity of the arguments they offer on his behalf. For years, his denials notwithstanding, Biden knew his son ran an international enterprise whose only real service was selling access to the Vice President of the United States to foreign entities who hoped to procure favorable policy decisions from the Obama administration. (Snip) Yet we are asked to believe that the “Big Guy” didn’t get a cut.
House GOP probing then-VP Biden’s dodgy
breakfast meeting with Kazakh bank official
at official residence

As House Republicans move to impeach Joe Biden, congressional investigators are zeroing in on a breakfast the then-vice president hosted in the summer of 2015 at his official residence in Washington, DC, for his son Hunter Biden and two business partners. Hunter’s former best friend in business, Devon Archer, mentioned the meeting in passing during his recent closed door testimony to the House Oversight Committee. Archer attended the July 7, 2015, meeting at 8:30am, along with Marc Holtzman, chairman of Kazakhstan’s largest bank, Kazkommertsbank.
What, Exactly, Was Governor Lujan Grisham’s Plan? replies

Caroline notes that: New Mexico’s Democratic attorney general notified the governor, a fellow Democrat, on Tuesday that he will not defend her in litigation challenging her public health order temporarily banning firearms in certain counties and imposing other gun restrictions. (Snip)What, I must ask, was the plan here? Was there one? Since Lujan Grisham made her statement, she’s been denounced by the sheriff of the county to which it was supposed to apply, by her own attorney general, and by figures such as David Hogg and Ted Lieu, who, in normal circumstances, serve as strenuous advocates of stricter gun-control. Could it really be that the governor just .
Sen. Josh Hawley Proposes 18% Credit Card
Interest Rate Cap
Posted by Garnet 9/12/2023 5:30:24 PM Post Reply
On the question of credit, the senior Republican senator from Missouri finds himself well to the left of the White House, only slightly less progressive than democratic socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and very much out of step with the business-friendly old guard of his party. Sen. Josh Hawley will introduce legislation to cap the annual percentage rate of credit cards at 18%, RealClearPolitics is first to report. The average APR, by most estimates, now hovers near the 24% mark. “Americans are being crushed under the weight of record credit card debt,” Hawley

The Central Intelligence Agency offered to pay off analysts in order to bury their findings that COVID-19 most likely leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, new whistleblower testimony to Congress alleges. A senior-level CIA officer told House committee leaders that his agency tried to pay off six analysts who found SARS-CoV-2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab if they changed their position and said the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to a letter sent Tuesday to CIA Director William Burns. Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (R-Ohio) requested all documents, communications
