  1. We now no who is funding the caravans in Biden’s Invasion.

    The same one who is bankrolling Biden, woke DAs, and Democrats.

    “Analysis: American Express, George Soros back non-profits pushing illegal immigration across Texas border”


    “More than one million illegal aliens crossing the border have been caught and released into the United States by Biden Administration officials since Jan. 2021, including an estimated 8,000 per day in Texas.

    These illegal aliens are financially supported here both by U.S. taxpayers and a group of pro-“open borders” non-profits backed by political activists like Hungarian billionaire George Soros and blue chip American companies like American Express, according to an analysis of Internal Revenue Service filings by the Austin Journal.

    Soros and American Express are both major donors to the American Immigration Council (AIC), the National Immigration Law Center and Immigration Equality, the group’s 990 filings show.

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has partnered with the three groups to help illegal aliens obtain visas to stay in the United States by claiming they have been victims of a crime, which entitles some aliens to special treatment by immigration officials.

    “If they claim to be victims of crime, they will be referred to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for U and T visa applications,” writes John Binder of Breitbart.com “U visas are a coveted visa category as the program allows thousands of illegal aliens to secure visas to stay in the U.S. and often bring their relatives with them. After years of living in the U.S. on a U visa, illegal aliens can secure a green card that ultimately allows them to eventually apply for naturalized American citizenship.”

    In Texas, AIC has been a leading advocate for so-called “sanctuary city” policies, in which local police refuse to follow federal laws with which they disagree politically, in particular on illegal immigration.

    The National Immigration Law Center also advocates for illegal aliens to receive welfare benefits and other taxpayer subsidies.

    “Federal law does not prohibit states from providing in-state tuition to (illegal) immigrants,” the group argues. “The shortage of education dollars is real, but it is patently unfair to burden motivated and high-achieving (illegal) immigrant youth with this responsibility.”

    On Tuesday, the group signed an amicus brief opposing “race-blind” admissions to colleges, arguing this would impact illegal immigrants’ ability to get subsidized tuition to schools.

    Immigration Equality, also backed by Soros and American Express, advocates for “LGBTQ” seekers of political asylum in the U.S. who “face persecution” in their home countries. It is demanding U.S. taxpayers pay to house and feed them in Texas communities– not in Mexico– while they pursue their cases in U.S. courts.”


  2. His actions make clear, Soros is seeking the downfall of the US.

    “Chris Carr Calls Out George Soros for Installing Partisan District Attorneys”


    “Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr (R) called out billionaire and Open Society founder George Soros for his financial support of progressive district attorneys, a move that has resulted in crime spikes across the nation.

    “George Soros has spent tens of millions to elect prosecutors who care more about coddling criminals than about protecting families. Now the Soros family is funding my Democrat opponent because they know I’ll stand up for YOU, not criminals,” Carr wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

    “Soros-backed prosecutors coddle criminals and almost immediately release violent criminals back on to the streets with no bond and no guarantee they will appear for their court date,” Atlanta Tea Party president Debbie Dooley told The Georgia Star News Wednesday. She added that the victims of these criminals are the law-abiding citizens that are left alone to deal with the aftermath of soft-on-crime policies.

    However, some constituents are pushing back.

    Soros-supported San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin was voted out of his office in a recall election that followed a drastic increase in violent crime in the city that Speaker Pelosi represents.

    Bun in a screed penned in The Washington Post, the 91-year-old billionaire survivor of the Siege of Budapest concluded in his statement that he has “no intention of stopping” his support of “reform-minded” prosecutors.

    Among the prosecutors who have been tapped to receive some of Soros’s vast wealth are Henry County’s Darius Pattillo, who received some $150,000 through the Georgia Safety and Justice PAC, a Soros operation.

    Interestingly enough, Pattillo’s status as Soros’s DA has gone overlooked, as he seems less radical than the other Soros-tapped prosecutors.

    Cook County DA Kim Foxx has presided over the largest spike in murders in more than 30 years in Chicago and dropped felony charges against 30 percent of felons in 2020.

    Foxx was aided to her current position by $2 million in Soros cash.

    Another infamous Soros DA is Los Angeles County’s George Gascon, who Soros spent some $4.7 million on through one of his PACs.

    Los Angeles saw a 46 percent increase in homicide during Gascon’s first year in office.

    The descent of Los Angeles into a city rife with broad daylight looting, shoplifting, and armed robbery has been noticed by people nationwide.

    “Soros is intentionally doing everything physically in his power to destroy major cities in this country,” former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik said. “


  3. Fraud and entrapment. Those must be his specialty, as is perpetrating them on innocent victims.

    I can’t understand why anyone believes a word these people say.



  4. You know she’s desperate when they have to unbox one of Satan’s favorite minions from the attic.



  5. She’s just gross. 😦

    And this left wing nut job also got 2.5 million of Soros’ money.

  6. He should be fired and investigated by an independent counsel. He’s dirty.

    “Blackburn: “So do you agree that the allegation of secret collusion between President Trump and Russia was a hoax? Yes or no?”

    Wray: “I don’t think that’s the terminology I would use, but, uh, I think there’s been a lot written on this subject in both, in the Special Counsel’s report, the Inspector General’s report—”

    Blackburn: “Just yes or no.”

    Wray: “That’s not a term I would use.”

    Blackburn: “Do you agree that the Hunter Biden laptop was not Russia disinformation?”

    Wray: “Uh, now you’re asking about an ongoing investigation, uh, that I expect our folks to pursue aggressively, and I just, I can’t comment on that one.”

    Blackburn: “OK. And you possess the laptop, right?”

    Wray: “Uh, I can’t, I can’t discuss that. It’s an ongoing investigation.””

  7. So where is the rest of the media on this?

    No outrage at Talcum X?

    No defense of your co-laborers in the profession being victimized like this?

    No coverage of this?

    Oh that’s right, it’s one of the “enemy” media outlets, so not a peep.




  8. Well, it is your petard your being hoisted by after all…..

    So enjoy! You built this!




  9. Expecting a DA to enforce the law?

    What a concept!

    “DeSantis Sacks Non-Prosecutor

    Democrats are concerned that Florida law might now be enforced.”


    “Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has done the right thing again. No wonder the media and Democrats (pardon the redundancy) are all over him.

    On Thursday morning, DeSantis suspended Hillsborough County (Tampa) State Attorney Andrew Warren, who has pledged not to enforce state laws prohibiting abortions after 15 weeks or laws restricting sex changes for minors. DeSantis appointed county Judge Susan Lopez interim state attorney.

    After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, handing control over abortion laws back to states, 83 prosecutors across the country signed a letter pledging not to prosecute anyone who performs, abets, or seeks an abortion after 15 weeks. Warren, a Democrat who styles himself a “criminal justice reformer,” was the only Florida prosecutor who joined in this pledge to nullify state law. On Thursday, Warren learned that in red Florida state laws are not a judicial cafeteria from which prosecutors may choose what they like and ignore what they don’t like.

    “This 15-week ban is an unconstitutional law,” Warren said in his defense. “The Legislature is hoping courts ignore the Florida Constitution. But I’m upholding the law and protecting the fundamental rights of all Floridians.”

    DeSantis is having none of it. “We are not going to allow this pathogen of ignoring the law to get a foothold here in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said in a press conference in Tampa, flanked by several Florida sheriffs and other police officials. “We are going to make sure our laws are enforced and that no individual prosecutor puts himself above the law. To take the position that you have veto power over the laws of this state is untenable.” He added, “’If the law conflicts with your idiosyncratic vision of social justice,’ that doesn’t mean you have veto power over the law.”

    In a press release, DeSantis said:

    State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida Law, not pick and choose which laws to enforce based in his personal agenda…. It’s my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.

    Warren called the governor’s actions “a political stunt” and claimed it was “illegal overreach.” Predictably, other Democrats also blasted DeSantis for his action. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who’s seeking the Democratic nomination to run against DeSantis for governor this year, claims this action shows that DeSantis wants to be a “dictator.”

    In a more measured tone but still off the mark, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, a Democrat, tweeted: “Removing a duly elected official should be based on egregious actions—not political statements. In a free state, voters should choose their elected officials.” But she gave us no guidelines on how to determine when a prosecutor is making a political statement, in which apparently he’s free to lie about his intentions, or when he means what he’s saying. Nor did she explain why we should bother electing state legislators to enact our laws if individual prosecutors are free to ignore them at their whim.

    Before being elected mayor in 2018, Castor was Tampa’s police chief, and she was quite a good one. She was competent and honest, and she didn’t pursue political agendas while top cop. But she’s certainly lost her way in the more political position of mayor in a city in which almost everyone in public office above the rank of lance corporal is a Democrat. She now finds herself crosswise with those in her previous vocation. Police in Hillsborough County and other, mostly blue, jurisdictions are frustrated with prosecutors who won’t prosecute.

    “I continue to work with my law enforcement counterparts who privately are frustrated with the state attorney, who seems intently focused on empathy for criminals and less interested in pursuing justice for crime victims,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister said at the press conference. Brian Dugan, the former Tampa police chief, was even more blunt, saying: “Andrew Warren is a fraud…. This is a terrible day, that the governor had to come and clean up our mess.””


    DeSantis will be a good president. 🙂

    More…. and again, Soros and his money are behind these people.


    “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended 13th Circuit State Attorney Andrew Warren, who is backed by George Soros, for not enforcing the bans on child sex surgeries and abortions after 15 weeks:

    “We are suspending Soros-backed 13th circuit state attorney Andrew Warren for neglecting his duties as he pledges not to uphold the laws of the state,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement. The 13th circuit falls over Florida’s Hillsborough County.

    “The constitution of Florida has vested the veto power in the governor, not in state attorneys,” DeSantis said. “We are not going to allow this pathogen of ignoring the law get a foothold in the state of Florida.”

    Warren of the 13th Judicial Circuit represented Hillsborough County.

    DeSantis names Hillsborough County Judge Susan Lopez to serve as the State Attorney while Warren serves the suspension:

    “State Attorneys have a duty to prosecute crimes as defined in Florida law, not to pick and choose which laws to enforce based on his personal agenda,” DeSantis said. “It is my duty to hold Florida’s elected officials to the highest standards for the people of Florida. I have the utmost trust that Judge Susan Lopez will lead the office through this transition and faithfully uphold the rule of law.”

    Lopez was appointed by DeSantis to serve as a judge on the Hillsborough County Court in 2021. She previously served as Assistant State Attorney of the 13th Judicial Circuit for more than 15 years.”


  10. From yesterday:

    “Alex Jones Ordered to Pay Sandy Hook Parents More Than $4 Million
    The parents who sued Jones had said an apology wouldn’t be enough and that the Infowars host needed to be held accountable for repeatedly spreading falsehoods about the attack”

    “The parents testified Tuesday about how they’ve endured a decade of trauma, inflicted first by the murder of their son and what followed: gun shots fired at a home, online and phone threats, and harassment on the street by strangers. They said the threats and harassment were all fueled by Jones and his conspiracy theory spread to his followers via his website Infowars.”

    Jones’ attorneys accidentally sent two-years worth of texts from his cellphone, and it looks like he may have committed perjury.

  11. Soros – the bogeyman of the right since…..insert date here. It’s getting to be a bit over the top. Soros donates to causes he supports – money is free speech and corporations are people according to Citizens United. Have to like that right wing judiciary.

    Soros supports immigration rights groups. He helps the poor and persecuted find a better life. What’s wrong with taking care of your neighbour. As for supporting politicians, there are right wing donors doing the same. For example, Ken Griffin has donated at least $21 million to Republican PACS so far this year, I’m’ sure more will come in September as the real midterm races start. Money = free speech and thus you have the American oligarchy in charge no matter the party.

    Since most Americans elect their district attorney, is the governor allowed to suspend a distict attorney? Is that a matter for the voters? DAs have always picked when to lay charges — if it was winneable or worth the effort. In this case, the DA was public about it.


  12. The first tweet on Abrams misses the context of the quote — she was stating abortion is a medical decision and seocndly you can’t impose your religious valuse on someone who has different religious values.

    In the second quote, Abrams has a point. Maternal care for black women border on purposeful neglect. Even a simple thing as pain management during labour, black women are routinely denied because of a misconception that black women have a higher pain tolerance. The black maternal death rate in Georgia is 66 per 100, 000. There are over 100 countries in the world where it’s safer to give birth including El Salvador, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Syria, etc. This alone should embarass Georgia. The maternal death rate in the US is around 20 per 100,000 (or 57th) – Cuba, Russia, Albania, Tajikistan etc all do better. I’ve mentioned this before but if you are pro-life these statistics should motivate you to do something better.

    Given DC strange status, one could argue it doesn’t have the same resources nor ability than Texas does it taking care of migrants. Perhaps if DC was a state, the comparison could be more fair.

    You have to wonder if Alex Jones’ lawyer sent the texts on purpose.


  13. Yeah, a corrupt leftist pro-criminal, pro-illegal invader, corrupt politician supporting, and baby killing/sterilization for poor people pushing toad of a boogieman too.

    He’s a good choice.


  14. But muh narrative…..




  15. Nothing is ever as advertised with these frauds.


    Damn those torpedoes! Biden needs a win dang it!

    “Over 230 economists warn Manchin’s spending bill will perpetuate inflation
    Economic experts claim that Manchin’s Inflation Reduction Act will actually make inflation worse”


    “A letter sent to House and Senate leadership from 230 economists argues that the Inflation Reduction Act is expected to contribute to skyrocketing inflation and will burden the U.S. economy, contrary to President Biden and Democrats’ claims.

    The economists wrote in the letter first obtained by Fox News Digital that the U.S. economy is at a “dangerous crossroads” and the “inaptly named ‘Inflation Reduction Act of 2022’ would do nothing of the sort and instead would perpetuate the same fiscal policy errors that have helped precipitate the current troubling economic climate.””


  16. The weaponization of govt against it’s citizens continues.

    But no mean tweets though….. so that’s something, right?



  17. Avoiding monkey pox is easy.

    Don’t do nasty stuff with nasty people.

    Easy. This isn’t hard to avoid or eradicate.


  18. If the Republican party remains split, the Democrats will be in much better shape for midterms and ’24, of course — provided they can nominate a decent candidate that’s not too “out there” and extreme (and that’s a big if right now). That said, the same “iffy” provision stands for the Republicans as well.

    The politically homeless segment of our population is growing by leaps and bounds these days.

  19. Own it Mayor. 🙂

    Sucks, huh?



  20. The sooner Trump exits the stage, a serious step forward can be made.

    Do they still make those old Vaudeville stage hooks? 🙂 sorry, I know some love and adore and quite literally worship him (which is another huge issues) and will support him to the ends of the earth, whatever he says or does, but it is seriously time to move on.

  21. Stirewalt on the abortion results (in a red state) this past week:

    ~ The message from Kansas is that the electorate has gotten bigger and less predictable than it was before the Dobbs decision. In a year that has been almost all bad news for Democrats prior to the summer, that’s a welcome change for the blue team. But both parties now have to remember that a lot of their assumptions about the nature of this race no longer apply. ~

  22. AJ — you didn’t answer my question; Soros funds groups that advocate for migrants who suffer poverty and persecution – what’s wrong with helping our neighbour?

    The FBI most wanted list looks like a history textbook – they’re all from the 70s and 80s. You can’t take that list seriously. They made it to the top 10 on the basis of seniority.

    Some economists agree with the Republicans, some with the Democrats. I would argue economic forecasts are like the weather channel forecast, never a certainty. I did notice some of the economist FOX cites are typical 80-90s University of Chicago neo-cons whose track record is quite poor and have lately turned into hacks for the wealthy think tanks. Inflation generally has two causes either not enough supply or too much demand. The former is the cause of today’s inflation and gov’t spending won’t affect it either way, but it will alleviate the effects of this inflation. If too much demand was the issue, then the Republicans would have a case but thats not what’s happening.


  23. Posting tweet from Majorie Taylor Greeene???? Getting to the bottom of the barrel???

    Greene is a big fan of the second amendment but suddenly she opposes it for IRS agents?
    In terms of blackouts, I think Texas has more to worry about than the rest of the US. Perhaps Abbot should put up some solar panels. Or maybe Texans should put solar panels on their roofs since the Texan grid is unreliable.

    Abbot is really trying to get political mileage from migrants. I’m curious if its actually legal for Texas to transport illegal migrants across state lines. Who knew busing the poor, the persecuted etc out of your state would get a governor such acclaim.

    Meanwhile in Florida, state sponsored workshops on civics lessons told elementary teachers that Jefferson and Washington opposed slavery and they were to omit the fact they actually had slaves. Accroding to the governor’s office, teachers will be instructed to teach true and factual history…..when the state simplifies history and refuses to discuss problems in a nostalgic past, we have a problem.

    I’m not to worried about monkeypox — my sex life is not nearly that interesting. (why do you say don’t do nasty things; sex isnt nasty). However, monkey pox cases have been reported in children and those who have boring sex lives. Once the pus from blisters gets on sheets, blankets, towels, etc it can spread to others. Do your laundry. Reminds me how smallpox spread through the Americas — europeans traders would resell smallpox blankets to natives.


  24. Rasmussen Reports (a republican leaning pollster) generic congressional poll has gone from +10 to +5 to + 3 Republican in less than a month. Generally, Rasmussen polls are +2 to +3 biased in favor of Republicans. And as is being pointed out elsewhere, this is not because people are changing their mind but because registered voters are now becoming likely voters.

    It will be interesting to see if electing a Trump approved slate in the Republican primary will benefit the Republicans in November. A disdain for Trump not a love for Biden drove the largest voter turnout in 2020. Trump approved canidates and the abortion issue might lead to a large voter turnout in 2022 which benefits the Democrats.


  25. True about the 2020 vote “for” Biden being more out of a dislike for Trump (or at least because of Trump fatigue). I knew several folks who went that way for exactly that reason. They hoped Biden would govern as a moderate, however, so are likely disappointed now. But Trump had already worn out his welcome with many on the Republican side. June 6 put the cherry on top of that sentiment.

    And the fact that Trump did not attend the inaugural was is very bad form, it told me that he cared more about himself and his own ego (not a surprise) than he did the good of the country.
