  1. A true coup d’état, and treason.


    “An FBI email previously not known to the public has revealed that the bureau planned to make Igor Danchenko—the primary source for British former spy Christopher Steele’s Trump dossier—a confidential human source (CHS) before it had even interviewed him.

    The revelation, which was discovered as a result of special counsel John Durham’s case against Danchenko, indicates that the FBI deliberately targeted 2016 presidential candidate and later President Donald Trump with claims it already knew at the time to be false.

    The email—of which only the subject line has been made public—was first uncovered by an internet sleuth who goes by the moniker “Walkafyre” and was included in hundreds of unused exhibits from Danchenko’s trial.

    The FBI used Danchenko—who was acquitted last week on all charges of lying to the FBI—in its investigation of Trump, despite knowing that Danchenko had helped fabricate the dossier.

    With the benefit of this new information, a renewed examination of the timeline between the Nov. 8, 2016, presidential election and the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller on May 17, 2017, reveals that the FBI—with the help of the Obama administration and Washington establishment figures—executed a concerted campaign to oust a sitting president.”

  2. Last night’s PA Senate debate was horrible for Democrats.

    Fetterman began the night by telling the crowd “Good night everybody” to start his opening remarks, and then it went downhill. Sadly he looked and sounded like a stroke victim, and someone medically unfit for public office. This became more and more obvious as the hour long debate progressed. He was unable to articulate his positions, or answer basic questions. It was at times hard to watch.

    Oz on the other hand looked prepared, knew his answers, and came across as reasonable and informed. His major slip up was his answer to the “Did your show push questionable and quacky treatments to illnesses?” He never answered and instead attacked Fetterman’s socialist medicine leanings. What he should have done was say look, I didn’t push these things for personal gain, and I don’t control who the shows advertisers are. Instead, he ducked the question. A bad move.

    Some highlights and thoughts….

    And it was….

    It was bad.

  3. The constitution currently reads that slavery and involuntary servitude is abolished except for those in prision where ut is still legal . I voted to abolish it there too. I was surprised at the original wording too.

  4. I read a story about that recently, several states were voting on it.

    ~ Nearly 157 years after the 13th Amendment was ratified to prohibit slavery and involuntary servitude, five states will ask voters to decide on measures banning slavery — in the form of prison labor.

    Advocates who petitioned to add such questions to the ballots in Alabama , Oregon , Louisiana , Tennessee , and Vermont hope to remove provisions in state constitutions that provide for slavery or involuntary work in the criminal justice system. The practical upshot would be to make prison labor voluntary. ~

    ~ More than 150 years after slaves were freed in the U.S., voters in five states will soon decide whether to close loopholes that led to the proliferation of a different form of slavery — forced labor by people convicted of certain crimes.

    None of the proposals would force immediate changes inside the states’ prisons, though they could lead to legal challenges related to how they use prison labor, a lasting imprint of slavery’s legacy on the entire United States. …

    … The effort is part of a national push to amend the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that banned enslavement or involuntary servitude except as a form of criminal punishment. That exception has long permitted the exploitation of labor by convicted felons. …

    Nearly 20 states have constitutions that include language permitting slavery and involuntary servitude as criminal punishments. In 2018, Colorado was the first to remove the language from its founding frameworks by ballot measure, followed by Nebraska and Utah two years later.

    This November, versions of the question go before voters in Alabama, Louisiana, Oregon, Tennessee and Vermont. … ~
