    “RNC Takes Legal Action To Stop Pennsylvania From Permanently Loosening Mail-In Ballot Rules”


    “The Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Pennsylvania banded together on Tuesday to file an application to intervene in a lawsuit from Republican Senate candidate David McCormick challenging the Coal State’s mail-in voting authenticity laws.

    “The RNC has a substantial and particularized interest in ensuring that Pennsylvania carries out free and fair elections. In particular, the legislature in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has statutorily required that mail-in ballots be dated by the elector,” the application states. “…The RNC has an interest in assuring that elections involving Republican candidates are conducted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and as affirmed by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.”

    Pennsylvania law explicitly states that mail-in and absentee ballots must have a handwritten signature and date on the voter’s declaration portion of the return envelope. Ballots lacking any of the mandatory elements including the date will not be counted.

    McCormick, however, asked the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania to make every Pennsylvania county accept mail-in ballots received on time, even if they lacked the compulsory date.

    He cited a ruling from the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which came two days after the primary election began, hoping that the primary tally could soon turn in his favor. In the ruling, a three-judge panel favored the left-wing American Civil Liberties Union and the Democrats who pushed to count unqualified ballots in Lehigh County in a 2021 election, despite state law dictating otherwise.

    The results for the Senate Republican primary in Pennsylvania have yet to be called as the state scrambles to deliver final tallies more than a week after election day. As of Wednesday morning, McCormick’s opponent, Mehmet Oz, was ahead by 0.1 percent.

    According to the RNC, this drastic, last-minute 3rd Circuit decision carries strong implications for the future of election integrity and the state’s ability to deliver secure results swiftly. By allowing unlawful ballots to be counted, the RNC says Pennsylvania could easily be opening up future elections to manipulation.

    “Were these validly enacted laws to be cast aside—and the recent decisions of this Court and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court turned on their head—the current competitive electoral environment in Pennsylvania, in which the Republican Committees invest substantial resources in support of Republican candidates to try to win elections, would be altered or impaired,” the application states.”


    Lehigh county politics are Dem run, and as crocked as they come.

  2. “Unseen Hero: As Cops Let Shooter Terrorize School, 1 Mom Sneaked in, Rescued Her Kids, Got Out Without Shooter Knowing”


    “As the media’s attention turns to police officers who stood outside a school in Uvalde, Texas, and refused to enter while a mass shooter killed 21 people on Tuesday, a mother is being hailed as a hero for going into the school to rescue her two children as the carnage unfolded.

    According to a report in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal, Angeli Rose Gomez said she drove 40 miles to get her children at Robb Elementary School, where they’re in second and third grade, respectively.

    Having found that police hadn’t entered the school, Gomez said she implored them to do something, was put in handcuffs by U.S. marshals, then convinced local police to get her freed.

    The Journal’s report comes amid mounting frustration over police officers outside the school who didn’t charge in after a gunman barricaded himself inside the building.

    The gunman, 18, was killed by a Border Patrol team after he went on a massacre that lasted over 40 minutes, The Associated Press reported. (The Journal said the timeline was longer — an hour between when the shooter began firing and when the tactical team entered the building.)

    Before that, however, parents and onlookers pleaded with police to enter the building.”

  3. I’d like to say the writer is wrong, but the Uvalde and Parkland shootings prove they’re correct. 😦

    “Uvalde Proves We Can’t Keep Outsourcing Our Kids’ Safety To A Cowardly Bureaucracy”


    “When off-duty U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent Jacob Albarado got a text from his wife, a fourth-grade teacher at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, stating that an active shooter had entered the building where she taught and their daughter attends second grade, he acted immediately.

    “There’s an active shooter,” Trisha Albarado wrote, according to The New York Times. “Help.”

    “I love you,” she added.

    At the time of the chilling text, Albarado was receiving a haircut. Knowing he had no time to waste, Albarado borrowed his barber’s shotgun and rushed to the school where he developed a plan with a few other law enforcement officers to evacuate his daughter, wife, and other students and staff who were holed up in bathrooms and classrooms.

    “I did what I was trained to do,” Albarado told the Times.

    There’s a growing push on the left to surrender children to “the community.” For years, Democrats and the corporate media have preached that the government and its institutions such as schools should make decisions about kids for parents. They want parents to stay out of the debate over radical curricula and encourage teachers to go behind guardians’ backs to call kids by different names and label them a different sex.

    There’s a time and a place for “it takes a village” in child-rearing, but in the case of Uvalde, those institutions that are supposed to protect some of the most innocent lives in society miserably failed, proving that the only thing that can love, sacrifice, and protect your kids to the fullest extent is you.

    While Albarado risked his life to save his family and dozens of children, law enforcement officers, sworn to protect the community at all costs, waited outside of the school building where they knew kids were being slaughtered.

    They had apparently already tried to approach the afflicted classroom once, more than 15 minutes after the shooter crashed his car outside of the elementary school and entered through an apparently propped-open door, but retreated after taking fire, a direct violation of active shooter training.

    According to Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Chris Olivarez, officers backed away because “they could have been shot.”

    Reports indicate that the shooter remained inside the school, periodically firing at students and staff, for upwards of 40 minutes while officers fended off and reportedly even handcuffed parents outside who urged police to enter the school.

    Angeli Rose Gomez, a mother of a second- and third-grader at Robb Elementary, told The Wall Street Journal she drove 40 miles to the school after she heard the news of the shooting only to get handcuffed when she urged police officers to intervene. Gomez said she wasn’t the only parent detained for trying to save her children.

    “She said she saw a father tackled and thrown to the ground by police and a third pepper-sprayed,” WSJ reported.”

    “The Sussmann Trial: fingers pointed at FBI leadership”


    “It was a long day of travel but we’re back at it on the Sussmann trial.

    This morning started with testimony from Bill Priestap, who in September 2016 was the FBI’s Assistant Director of Counterintelligence. His testimony was expected, even before the witness lists were put out. Back in January, we observed that Priestap had testified before a grand jury. In fact, Priestap himself stated today that he testified before the grand jury in June 2021.

    A little bit of background on Priestap before we begin. Priestap approved the opening of Crossfire Hurricane and decided against defensive briefings being provided to the Trump Campaign. He was Peter Strzok’s supervisor and also approved the use of all the confidential human sources used against the Trump campaign (Stefan Halper, et al.).

    Last week, former FBI general counsel James Baker testified that he spoke with Priestap about his meeting with Sussmann and “repeated to Mr. Priestap that Michael had said that he was not there on behalf of a particular client, that he was there as a citizen, as a – essentially as a human source of information, confidential source.”

    At trial today, Priestap was presented with notes he took after that meeting with Baker. Those notes reflected that conversation with Baker, stating Sussmann “said not doing this for any client.” Priestap also said that the Alfa Bank/Trump Organization investigation ultimately fell under his control. Getting to the issue of materiality, Priestap was then asked about why the motivations of sources matter to the FBI:

    Q: Based on your experience, if Mr. Sussmann had brought these allegations to the FBI on behalf of the Hillary Clinton Campaign, would that have mattered to the FBI?

    Priestap: Again, the – somebody – anybody bringing information to the FBI, we’re interested – the FBI is interested in knowing the motivation of the person providing the information.

    On cross examination, Priestap admitted he couldn’t recall the meeting with Baker or why he wrote in his notes that Sussmann wasn’t there on behalf of a client. After approximately 6 years, his memory was fuzzy:

    Q: Do you remember anything more about why you wrote that down?

    Priestap: I do not.

    Q: You don’t remember anything about the context in which that was said to you?

    Priestap: I do not.

    To summarize the defense theory of this case, it’s that Sussmann was there to help the FBI and that he supposedly acted against his clients’ interest by stopping a New York Times article on the Alfa Bank allegations from being published. On that topic, Priestap discussed how the FBI might ask a newspaper to not run a story:

    Q: As a general matter, if the FBI knew that a newspaper story was coming out about a threat from a nation state, are there ever occasions in which you would, at the FBI, want to ask a newspaper to hold off on running that story?

    Priestap: Yes.

    Q: Okay. And that’s because there are situations in which the FBI would want to have the chance to investigate before a story came out, right?

    Priestap: Yes. If the FBI thought, let’s just say, that publicly revealing a certain matter could potentially negatively impact not just things the FBI was doing but potentially negatively impact the country, we’d want to have a conversation about it.

    Then there’s this blockbuster of a comment. Counsel for Sussmann presented Priestap with messages from the FBI’s internal messaging system, in which Priestap discussed how the FBI’s leadership – Comey, McCabe, et al. – were excited about pursuing the Alfa Bank/Trump allegations:”

    “The influence that FBI leadership (Comey and McCabe) had on the investigations related to the Trump/Russia accusations is notable – but not an exception. This is the first time we heard that the Alfa Bank hoax was pushed by FBI leadership. However, this fits their broader pattern. Recall the statement of FBI agent William Barnett. He was part of the FBI’s investigation of General Flynn and decided it should be closed down. The FBI’s senior officials, who ran the investigation from the “top down,” called the shots.”

  6. An inconvenient truth….

    “There aren’t enough lithium resources in the world to completely convert every gasoline-powered vehicle into electric.”

    Nor are there near enough power plants to charge them all and keep the lights on.

    Again, the pain is the point.


    “As Americans start the summer driving season this Memorial Day weekend, they face gasoline prices that are memorable — for all the wrong reasons.

    A national-average gallon of regular gas cost $2.37 at President Joe Biden’s inauguration. This metric hit an all-time-high $4.60 Thursday, AAA reports — up 94%.

    Biden does not feel Americans’ pain. Indeed, the sadist in chief gleefully inflicts this torture. Saying the quiet part aloud, he expects thanks for this punishment.

    Visiting Tokyo Monday, Biden told journalists: “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger, and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels.”


    Biden desperately wants Americans to abandon gasoline-powered cars and adopt electric vehicles. Of course, as a weekly communicant in the Church of the Green New Deal, Biden forgets that 80% of an EV’s volts stem from disgusting natural gas (38.3%), nasty coal (21.8%) and glow-in-the dark nuclear (18.9%). Only 20% flow from beautiful windmills (9.2%), gorgeous solar panels (2.8%), renewable-but-fish-spooking hydropower (6.3%) and other “green” sources.

    Biden could not care less that inflation-depleted consumers will struggle to buy these largely fossil-fueled EVs. According to Kelley Blue Book, average transaction prices for new EVs ran $65,977 in March versus $45,927 across the auto industry (43.6% higher) and $26,052 for compact cars (253.2% more).

    Inconvenient truth: Magic wands do not manufacture EVs. Building them requires natural resources, many too rare to square with Biden’s fantasy production expectations.

    Lithium is scarce. This key EV component’s prices rocketed 438% year-on-year in April to what Tesla’s Elon Musk called “insane levels.”

    Joe Lowry, aka “Mr. Lithium,” warns that there is no quick fix here. “You can build a battery factory in two years, but it takes up to a decade to bring on a lithium project,” the Global Lithium founder told Bloomberg. “In a 2050 scenario, there’s time for everything to happen that needs to happen. But in 2030, it just isn’t going to happen. Just look at the mess we’re in from a lithium supply standpoint with less than 10% EV penetration.”

    Traditional cars use 18 to 49 pounds of copper, according to Copper.org. EVs need 183 pounds. Nickel is another key EV ingredient. So, naturally, Biden is encouraging copper and nickel production.


    Biden’s Interior Department in January canceled Chile-based Antofagasta’s planned Twin Metals copper and nickel mine in Minnesota. Last fall, the White House announced a scheme to slap a 20-year mining ban on that state’s Boundary Waters region, where Antofagasta was to mine.

    Biden’s left hand does not know what his far-left hand is doing.

    Meanwhile, his war on oil has raised West Texas Intermediate crude from $53.24 per barrel when he arrived to $110.33 Wednesday — up 107.2%. This and massive Biden-Democratic federal spending increased April’s year-on-year inflation to 8.3%, nearly six times higher than Trump’s final 1.4% rate in January 2021. Bidenflation began long before the Ukraine-invasion-related “Putin’s price hikes” that Biden blames for falling buying power.”

    They know exactly what they’re doing here.

    “U.S. Diesel Supplies Running on Fumes as Inventories Hit Record Lows

    Of course, instead of gas exploration, Biden exploring release of diesel fuel reserves.”


    “As we head into the summer season, a new crisis looms on the horizon related to the nation’s supply chain.

    Diesel fuel, which powers many essential supply vehicles (e.g., trucks, boats, and trains) and farm equipment, is in short supply.

    According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), a gallon of diesel is $5.554, up 75 percent from a year ago. This is just short of the record high of $5.58 that was posted last week. Prices are even higher in the northeast. In New York, the average price of diesel is $6.515. In Rhode Island, it is $6.43.

    East coast diesel inventories have plunged to their lowest levels in more than 30 years. Nationally, stockpiles are at a 17-year low.

    This could prove devastating for the post-pandemic recovery since it is a crucial component of the economy as it fuels everything from farming machinery to construction equipment to cargo ships

    The East Coast of the U.S. is reporting its lowest seasonal diesel inventory on record. Part of the looming shortage is the closure of refineries for diesel fuel.

    The reason for so many closures? Regulations, of course.

    In the past 15 years, the number of refineries on the U.S. East Coast has halved to just seven. The closures have reduced the region’s oil processing capacity to just 818,000 barrels per day, down from 1.64 million barrels per day in 2009. Regional oil demand, however, is stronger.

    Rory Johnston, a managing director at Toronto-based research firm Price Street and writer of the newsletter Commodity Context, told FreightWaves that refining is a “thankless industry,” with intense regulations that have limited the opening of new refineries. The Great Recession of 2008 led to several East Coast refineries shuttering, but there have been more recent shutdowns too. One major Philadelphia refinery shuttered in 2019 after a giant fire (and it already had declared bankruptcy), and another refinery in Newfoundland shut down in 2020.

    Daryl Dozar, who has been a truck driver for 15 years, explains the realities of the shortage.

    “A company got a variety of trucks, so they have a bigger budget. An owner-op everything, insurance, fuel, anything you do with your truck you gotta pay out of pocket, so it’s really hard on an owner-op, it really is,” said Dozar.
    The truckers feel prices and a potential fuel shortage will not only impact them, but the general public as well.

    Meanwhile, the Biden administration is scrambling to put a band-aid on the problem. Instead of putting a leash on green justice bureaucrats, it plans to renew Chevron’s license to operate in the economic hellscape of Venezuela.”

    @$%$@%$#@$ idiots.


    “The Washington Free Beacon‘s Noah Pollak received a photo of this poster in Manhattan.”

    “Notice the “find support” number is at the bottom. Above the number, we have the department normalizing drug abuse despite evidence of fentanyl-laced drugs. Leslie wrote about the link between those drugs and teens.

    Don’t be ashamed. OK, I can get behind that sentiment. We shouldn’t dehumanize addicts and shove them aside. They need help, love, and compassion.

    But the rest disturbs the heck out of me. There is a safe way to use drugs!?

    Instead of encouraging you to get help, Florence wants you to feel “empowered that you are using safely.”

    WHY is a department of health giving drug users a gold star for using drugs safely?

    Florence and the NYC Department of Health think you cannot break the habit. Is kicking the drug habit a complex and lengthy process? Yes, but you can do it. Once an addict, always an addict. You have to work at it the rest of your life, but you can do it.
    The worst part of the poster:”

    “Do you know how you prevent overdoses? You seek help and quit drugs.

    “Avoid using alone and take turns.” Yes, go ahead and share that needle with someone else!

    “Start with a small dose and go slowly.” Yes, build up your tolerance! You don’t want to overdose on the first try!

    “Have naloxone on hand.” Yes, get the nasal spray to use in case of an overdose. But don’t bother asking for help.

    “Avoid mixing drugs.” Because, you know, only using heroin or cocaine won’t result in an overdose.

    “Test your drugs using fentanyl test strips.” Yes, get your test trips instead of asking for help or finding a way to get clean. Make sure you grab the naloxone nasal spray!

    The “avoid an overdose” section is also on the website:”

  9. How could we have known….?

    Pay attention. He made his evil intent known. Yubo needs to answer for this.

    “Uvalde gunman threatened rapes and school shootings on social media app Yubo in weeks leading up to the massacre, users say”


    “Salvador Ramos told girls he would rape them, showed off a rifle he bought, and threatened to shoot up schools in livestreams on the social media app Yubo, according to several users who witnessed the threats in recent weeks.”

    “But those users — all teens — told CNN that they didn’t take him seriously until they saw the news that Ramos had gunned down 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, this week.

    Three users said they witnessed Ramos threaten to commit sexual violence or carry out school shootings on Yubo, an app that is used by tens of millions of young people around the world.

    The users all said they reported Ramos’ account to Yubo over the threats. But it appeared, they said, that Ramos was able to maintain a presence on the platform. CNN reviewed one Yubo direct message in which Ramos allegedly sent a user the $2,000 receipt for his online gun purchase from a Georgia-based firearm manufacturer.”

    “Guns are boring,” the user responded. “No,” Ramos apparently replied.
    In a statement to CNN, a Yubo spokesperson said “we are deeply saddened by this unspeakable loss and are fully cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.” Yubo takes user safety seriously and is “investigating an account that has since been banned from the platform,” the spokesperson said, but declined to release any specific information about Ramos’ account.

    Use of Yubo skyrocketed during the coronavirus pandemic, as teens trapped indoors turned to the app for a semblance of in-person interactions. The company says it has 60 million users around the world — 99% of whom are 25 and younger — and has trumpeted safety features including “second-by-second” monitoring of livestreams using artificial intelligence and human moderators.

    Despite those safety features, the users who spoke to CNN said Ramos made personal and graphic threats. During one livestream, Amanda Robbins, 19, said Ramos verbally threatened to break down her door and rape and murder her after she rebuffed his sexual advances. She said she witnessed Ramos threaten other girls with similar “acts of sexual assault and violence.”

    Robbins, who said she lives in California and only ever interacted with Ramos online, told CNN she reported him to Yubo several times and blocked his account, but continued seeing him in livestreams making lewd comments.

    “[Yubo] said if you see any behavior that’s not okay, they said to report it. But they’ve done nothing,” Robbins said. “That kid was allowed to be online and say this.””


  10. Remember this next time some liberal idiot like AOC bashes them.

    “NBC: BORTAC agents who were told not to enter the school waited 30 minutes and then went in anyway”


    “Now NBC has published a story with a small but significant update to what the Times reported earlier. It turns out the BORTAC agents who killed Ramos were never told to go inside. Instead, they got tired of waiting and simply decided on their own to go in.

    According to the officials, agents from BORTAC, the Customs and Border Protection tactical unit, and ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) arrived on the scene between noon and 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday. Local law enforcement asked them to wait, and then instructed HSI agents to help pull children out of the windows.

    The BORTAC team, armed with tactical gear, at first did not move toward the gunman. After approximately 30 minutes passed, however, the federal agents opted of their own volition to lead the “stack” of officers inside the school and take down the shooter.

    NBC also confirms that the on scene commander is the same guy I identified here. His name is Peter Arredondo and he’s the chief of police for the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, a police force made up of just six officers. If the DPS account of the incident is accurate (and it’s hard to trust any of the narrators at this point) then Arredondo is the person who was telling everyone else to stand down because he had determined the situation had become a barricade.

    When I wrote about the DPS press conference earlier, I transcribed director Steven McGraw’s statement about what police should have done and asked some questions of my own:

    “When there’s an active shooter, the rules change. It’s no longer a barricaded subject. You don’t have time. You don’t worry about outer perimeters. And by the way, Texas embraces active shooter training, active shooter certification.

    “That doctrine requires officers, we don’t care what agency you’re from, you don’t have to have a leader on the scene. Every officer lines up, stacks up, goes and finds where those rounds are being fired and keeps shooting until the subject is dead. Period.”

    McGraw points out that he wasn’t there. Fair enough but why didn’t anyone at the scene push to follow this advice? If this is what officers are taught to do in this situation why didn’t any of them push back on what was obviously the wrong approach?”


  11. The news here is the historic flooding up north from here. Homes, cabins, businesses and museums are all in danger. Whole areas are on the edge of being evacuated (some have evacuation notices, but not mandatory yet). Last year drought and this year rain, rain, rain.

    Headline in yesterday’s paper was about the electric brownouts that may be coming this summer. This while our leaders are urging more and more people to drive electric vehicles. If we only have those, I can tell you that you will have people frostbitten and frozen in our winters. Only fools think they can just mandate against reality, whether it is about technology or gender.

    The addiction campaign will just lead to even more grief and sadness to so many.

    Biden has previously made the false claim about Trump supporters killing police officers.

    U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died a day after the attack, but his death was afterward determined to be from natural causes: two strokes at the base of his brain stem caused by a clot in an artery.

    Four police officers, serving either the Capitol Police or the Washington Metropolitan Police force, died by suicide in the weeks following the attacks.”

No injuries were reported from those at the party. Investigators said Butler was warned about speeding in the area with children present before he left.

    Sorry, not good enough.

    “”There was almost a mutiny”: Uvalde cop says force is furious that they were held back”


    “The key word here is “almost.” Why wasn’t there a mutiny?

    The Border Patrol didn’t let the wishes of the police chief stop them from going in — after they waited half an hour.

    Judge for yourself whether People magazine’s source is telling the truth or whether this is self-serving spin to deflect blame now that the Uvalde PD has become a national laughingstock.

    “There was almost a mutiny,” the officer tells PEOPLE. “We were like, ‘There’s a f—ing gunman in the school, we hear gunshots, and we’re just going to stand here with our thumbs up our asses?’ We wanted to go in and save lives. It was the most frustrating situation of my entire career.”

    “We felt like cowards,” the officer continues. “It felt cowardly to stand off and let this punk, this kid, this 18-year-old @#$%$#% just go in and do whatever he wanted to do. There was a lot of arguing, a lot of cussing, a lot of people who were saying that we should just say f— it and go in, but then what? We needed to have a plan, and the commander didn’t have a plan.”…

    “Even if he had barricaded himself in, he had already shot at people,” the officer says, “so why weren’t we in there doing what we should’ve done? I remember thinking ‘this is wrong.’ But there was nothing I could do.”

    A plan would have been nice. But cops are trained nowadays to confront a shooter immediately, without a plan, even if back-up hasn’t arrived yet. “The first responding officer — I don’t care if it’s the Deputy Dawg cartoon guy — he goes in and stops the shooter. That’s just part of the job,” said one expert on active shooters to WaPo. “You’ve got a ballistic vest. You know what the kids have? Crayons. You are duty-bound to do something. If someone is telling you to stay outside, you disobey that order..”

    “A former World Health Organization (WHO) official, Dr. David Bell, said he is concerned about the proposed amendments to the U.N.’s 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR), also being called the pandemic treaty or pandemic accord. Bell said if ratified, the treaty would give power to a small group of WHO officials and effectively take away the sovereignty of countries around the globe.

    “There are a lot of ways that even though it doesn’t directly change sovereignty, in effect it does, it takes away the ability of the people of that country to make their own decisions,” Bell said during an interview with EpochTV’s American Thought Leaders program.”

    “Ranking Member of the House global health subcommittee, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) warned that the potential changes to IHR, specifically the ones the Biden administration is seeking, will undermine U.S. sovereignty.

    “The Biden Administration’s absurd proposal to surrender U.S. sovereignty to the corrupt World Health Organization (WHO) is an egregious breach of the constitutional principle that will lead to less accountability and more misconduct by this problematic UN agency,” Smith said in a press statement.

    President Joe Biden’s administration is pushing amendments that would give WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus unilateral authority to declare a public health emergency in any nation based on whatever evidence he chooses.”

  24. This is what irresponsible “journalism” looks like.

    “MSNBC Falsely Claims You’re Given An AR-15 When You Enlist In The Military…”


    “During Saturday’s Alex Witt Reports on MSNBC, Yasmin Vossoughian had a message to any American who wishes to purchase an AR-15: “join the military.” Vossoughian backed up her self-righteous reporting from Uvalde by falsely claimed that the AR-15 is given to members of the military when they enlist.

    During a segment with Witt, Vossoughian referenced an interview she did with a protestor who is in favor of banning the AR-15, “I asked him, who you just heard from, guy who’s had multiple tours overseas in the Middle East, who knows how to fight with an AR, right? He’s given an AR when he enlists. Should an 18-year old be able to buy an AR?”

    That is simply not true and no amount of emotional reporting is going to change that.”


  25. Too bad he didn’t get a taxpayer funded driver, like his wife.



  26. More delusion driven faux leftist rage….


    And then there’s reality….


  27. She’s a race baiting clown living off the tax dollars of others. She’s gross.



  28. The stupid….. it hurts….



  29. Even this clown gets it.



  30. But muh narrative….

    “Inconvenient truth for globalists: Arctic ice at 30-year high

    Data contradict connection with rising levels of CO2”


    “The World Economic Forum and the globalist movement it helps lead have used the “climate crisis” and the COVID-19 pandemic as pretexts for measures to redistribute the wealth of nations.

    But this week, as WEF convenes is annual conference in Davos, Switzerland, the Arctic sea ice expanse so far this month is at a 30-year high, according to data from intergovernmental European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, points out climate-change skeptic Tony Heller.”


    “”Most years the Arctic loses ice, but this year ice extent has increased” more than 77,000 square miles, he wrote on Twitter, adding the news likely would not be reported by CNN, BBC News or the New York Times.

    Meanwhile, the sea melt last summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea was well above average.

    Last September, amid the increase in Arctic ice, the New York Times reported a number of leading health and medical journals declared climate change “the greatest threat to global public health” and called on governments to respond with the urgency with which they confronted the coronavirus pandemic.

    The declarations followed the announcement that the Biden Health and Human Services Department would treat climate change as a public health issue.

    The Daily Caller pointed out at the time that governments and public health bodies could invoke emergency authority as they had in response to COVID-19 and enforce drastic measures such as curbing private-vehicle use, consumption of animal products and fossil fuel drilling.

    This week, amid charges of ceding U.S. sovereignty to the World Health Organization, 12 of 13 amendments to the International Health Regulations submitted by the Biden administration for a vote in the World Health Assembly in Geneva were removed from consideration.

    Among the amendments was a measure that would give the WHO director-general unilateral authority to declare a health emergency in a member nation according to the U.N. agency’s broad definition of health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.””


    It’s all about control, as always with these globalist types.
