  4. Odd…..

    Hmmm… did Paul call off security…..?

    10 bucks says the video evidence will not make the light of day until after the midterms.

    Pelosi’s DUI shows how they hide facts and video from the public, and if Jan6 taught us nothing else, it’s that Dems love to hide video and evidence that doesn’t support their narrative. There’s still 1400 hours of video we’ve never been allowed to see.

  5. And now I read that Pelosi told the guy he had to go to the bathroom where he made the 911 call. The dispatcher is a hero for quickly making the call a priority…wouldn’t it be anyway if it was coming from a “Pelosi”???

    I am sad this man was attacked but the true story I sense will never be known.

    “COVID likely started circulating in China is late 2019–now 3 years ago–and its effects have dominated our lives for 2 1/2 years.

    Yet for much of that time the Establishment™ has been gaslighting us about its likely origins. You know that. The Establishment™ knows that you know. And now the Senate Republicans on the health committee are laying the facts out on the table. COVID almost certainly was released accidentally from a Chinese research lab.

    It was remarkable how quickly the Narrative™ settled on the zoonotic origin of the virus, since warning signs that the virus didn’t originate naturally were everywhere. Even scientists who confidently declared in private their belief that the virus was engineered publicly stated the opposite–after having been directed to by Anthony Fauci, the keeper of the keys to the kingdom’s treasury when it comes to research dollars. Fauci in recent months has been backtracking on whether or not the virus could have been engineered, but he sure expended enormous effort maintaining the fiction that an animal origin was certain.

    There is a simple reason for Fauci’s reluctance to consider a lab leak hypothesis–if it came from the Wuhan Institute for Virology, the US government likely funded the research. Obviously nobody wants that on their record, and Fauci has quite the pension to protect, as well as an unearned reputation as The Science™.

    From the Wall Street Journal:

    WASHINGTON—The Covid-19 pandemic that has killed millions worldwide “was most likely the result of a research-related incident” in China, and not natural transmission of a virus from animal to human, a new report by Republicans on the Senate health committee concludes.

    The study cites details about the early spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus, which causes Covid; the fact that no animal host has been identified nearly three years into the pandemic; and troubled biosafety procedures at labs in the Chinese city of Wuhan to buttress its conclusion.

    The 35-page report by Republican committee staff acknowledges that definitive conclusions about the pandemic’s origins are impossible without more evidence. But, it says: “The hypothesis of a natural zoonotic origin no longer deserves the benefit of the doubt, or the presumption of accuracy.”

    The report is largely based on information already publicly available but is likely to bolster calls in Washington for further investigations into the origins of the virus. Republicans have vowed to launch more aggressive Covid-19 probes if they regain control of one or both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections.

    Previous zoonotic disease outbreaks—in which a pathogen jumps from animals to man—have occurred in multiple locations as a virus circulates in animal populations, while the Covid virus is known to have emerged only in Wuhan, home to laboratories conducting research on coronaviruses, the report notes. In addition, it says, no animal has been identified as infected with the virus before the December 2019 pandemic outbreak.

    I have always suspected, based upon the balance of the evidence I have access to, that the virus was accidentally leaked from a lab. But I freely admit that biological research is not in my wheelhouse.

    What is in my wheelhouse is the manipulation of evidence, the shaping of the Narrative™, the corruption at the core of our institutions where money and power are accumulated while citizens and the economy are manipulated for the benefit of the people at the top of the power pyramid. The Establishment™ is a transnational club, and as with all such clubs if you are inside you are covered, if you are outside you are scum.

    The conspiracy to cover up the origins of the virus isn’t based upon some deep dark desire to kill off millions of people. Nor, I am certain, was the virus released intentionally to create the conditions where the people at the top could seize emergency powers to take us far down the path of tyranny–that was just a happy accident that the WEF crowd took advantage of. If they wanted to do that, they would have chosen a time when Trump wasn’t president.

    No, this one is explained by something as simple as bureaucrats covering their asses after having blundered so badly that millions of people died. The emails that were FOIA’d from the NIH make that clear:

    In the earliest days of the pandemic, Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins emailed about coronaviruses under study at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and about whether they had steered money to the lab, an email obtained by U.S. Right to Know shows.

    Collins, then leader of the National Institutes of Health, and Fauci, leader of its infectious diseases institute, exchanged emails on February 1, 2020, about a preprint authored by Zhengli Shi, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases. The preprint described bat coronaviruses under study at the lab, including a coronavirus 96 percent genetically similar to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

    The emails show that Collins and Fauci were concerned about links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology and NIH.

    “In case you haven’t seen this preprint from one week ago,” Collins said in a February 1, 2020, email to Fauci. “No evidence this work was supported by NIH.”

    “I did see it, but did not check the similarities. Obviously we need more details,” Fauci replied, a little before noon.

    Some details of the short exchange are redacted.”

    The email shows that these concerns were top of mind at a critical time.

    About two hours after the email exchange, Collins and Fauci would join a secret teleconference with a group of virologists who were closely examining the novel coronavirus. The teleconference touched off a high profile push to discredit the lab leak hypothesis.

    The revelation that Collins and Fauci were discussing whether NIH had funded work on coronaviruses similar to SARS-CoV-2 at the Wuhan lab in the hours before suggests that politics may have been at play.

    Those virologists’ claims that the virus could not have been engineered may have been influenced by Collins and Fauci. The NIH leaders may have sought to obscure links between federal funding and coronavirus research at the advancing pandemic’s epicenter. The emails raise questions about these virologists’ assurances that their deliberations were apolitical.”

  7. Another one….

    But big deal, right?

    After all Dem Rep Swalwell was sleeping with a Chinese spy and he’s still a Rep. and on numerous committees.

    This is a resume enhancer if you’re a Dem.

    “Democratic Staffer Fired After Covertly Working With Chinese Embassy”

    https://dailycaller.com/2022/10/28/democratic-staffer-fired-chinese-embassy-don-beyer/

    “A staffer for Democratic Virginia Rep. Don Beyer was fired this week for allegedly working on behalf of the Chinese Embassy in Washington to set up meetings with other Congressional aides, according to a National Review report.

    The staffer, Barbara Hamlett, allegedly reached out to other Congressional staffers and attempted to arrange meetings between them and Chinese Embassy officials for at least several months, National Review reported. Beyer quickly fired Hamlett after he learned of the allegations against her and investigated.”

    But yeah, the Rep. she worked for was totally surprised by this news too. 🙄

    “Meacham Tells MSNBC Midterms ‘The Gravest Test’ Since The Civil War”

    https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/alex-christy/2022/10/28/meacham-tells-msnbc-midterms-gravest-test-civil-war

    “Fresh off his CNN appearance, presidential historian Jon Meacham took his shoehorned Abraham Lincoln analogies to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Friday to warn “this is the gravest test of citizenship since the Civil War.” Therefore, just like Lincoln fought slavery, voters must vote Democrat to save democracy.

    Tying the Civil War to current times, Meacham declared, “The war had come, however, because he was convinced that slavery had to die and democracy had to endure. And so, in our own time, we have to do — to use a popular term, we have to do an inventory.”

    Imploring voters to vote for the blue team, Meacham continued, “We have to decide what do we really believe? Do–are we so wedded to a partisan agenda in real time that we are — we want our way right now, or are just enough of us able to say, you know, I may not agree with the Democrats there this case on policy, but you know what, democracy is more important than a marginal tax rate.”

    After Mitchell mentioned about “345 election deniers”—by which she meant Republican election deniers, Democrat election deniers never factor into these conversations—running for office, she asked, “How confident can we be that democracy does survive?”

    Meacham replied by warning, “We can’t, we can’t be confident. We have to work really, really hard. This is the gravest test of citizenship since the Civil War and it’s, this is, as President Biden might say, it’s not hyperbole and it’s not a joke.”

    At least Mitchell managed to mention at the beginning of the segment that Meacham occasionally advises Biden. Still, Meacham then returned to his earlier point about voting for Democrats:”

    “And I think one of the groups that has a moral reckoning to do are people who disagree with President Biden and Speaker Pelosi, whom we are thinking about at this hour, and the Democratic Party on policy who say they don’t appreciate Trump but who nevertheless vote Republican because of judges and taxes and that sort of thing. All important, of course. But as our friend Doris Goodwin pointed out, quoting Eleanor Roosevelt, this is not an ordinary time. ”

  9. “How fake news is made…”

    “Kari Lake Takes On “Fake News” Reporters: “Propagandist” Journalists Will Run Any Story That Benefits Democrats”

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2022/10/28/kari_lake_propagandist_journalists_will_run_with_any_story_that_benefits_democrats.html

    “KARI LAKE: We’re going to do a tutorial on how fake, bogus, defamatory news is made, at the hands of many of you.

    Welcome, we’re happy you’re here. We know the world is watching us… We had an amazing event last night, an evening with first responders and law enforcement. Men and women who put their lives on the line every single day… and while this was happening, my desperate opponent (who is sinking like a lead weight in water) pulled a stunt, and you guys fell for it.

    She put out a defamatory statement and you all ran with it. You didn’t do your journalistic duty. it was a malpractice of journalism like I’ve never seen before. It was an effort, I believe, to influence this election. Many of you are an arm of the Democrat Party Many of you are propagandists. And almost all of you should be ashamed.

    Yesterday, my Democrat opponent put out a statement while I was meeting with police officers and firefighters, working to make sure that our state is safe, she’s pulling stunts and you guys are falling hook, line, and sinker for them. She put out a statement about a petty theft that took place at her office. She knew darn well I had nothing to do with it, so she puts a statement out, and right away, your gatekeepers over at the Arizona Democratic Party jumped on it and put a statement out, which was the cue to you to go ahead and start running with it.

    NBC News, an arm of the Democrat Party, was the first to start reporting on it. And then we get this from Newsy, whatever that is, “Gubernatorial candidate’s campaign headquarter broken into.”

    You guys spread this like wildfire. And then The Guardian, overseas, “Campaign HQ Broken Into,” Watergate, oh my goodness.

    And then Axios, with a local reporter Jeremey Duda, runs on it, can’t wait to get it out. Does absolutely no fact-checking. Runs with the fake news.

    You gotta do better, guys. We’re 13 days out from the election and you’re trying to influence this election, much like you did in 2020 when you refused to cover Joe Biden’s criminal son Hunter Biden’s laptop. You refused to cover that, you refused to cover the evidence that was on that. This time, it is the other way around. Completely bogus stories and you’re running with it. Absolute fake news.

    This was an actual picture and font that ran on NBC News all day, it says, “GOP Incites Break-in At Hobbs Campaign HQ.” And look at the picture they picked. Thank you very much, NBC.

    Look at this one, “AZ Dem Governor Candidate Katie Hobbs Blames GOP Incitement For Break-in At Campaign HQ.”

    MSNBC, an arm of the Democrat Party, Arizona Central runs with it.

    No fact-checking. You guys don’t want to dig around, you just want to run defamatory statements.

    I’ve got many of these, guys, it is embarrassing. “A Direct Result Of Campaign Lies And Intimidation.” Blaming me for a break-in. Now hopefully by now, you figured it out. But that’s part of the plan, you don’t care about the facts. You know the facts will come out later, you’ll cover those once or twice, no big deal. But you’ll cover the lie, you’ll spread it all over the world over and over and over again. And that is how fake news is spread.

    You will absolutely take a completely fake and bogus story, you knew lies were in that.

    Well, I have a story for you. We had an incident this morning at our campaign HQ. I didn’t go crazy and throw a bunch of statements out. But we had an incident where someone was seen rummaging in our campaign office and I have evidence to believe it may have been Katie Hobbs herself who was involved in this. So I want you to take the same vigor you put into the story, the lies that were spread yesterday.

    I saw last night, FOX 10 News, my old employer, wow, they actually did more to protect the criminal in this case, they blurred his face. They protected Katie Hobbs because they were carrying her water. And they defamed me, they put defamatory statements, lies about me.

    And the reason they did that is that this was the real news yesterday that none of you wanted to cover. We’re 11 points up, you’re in a frenzied panic because your chosen candidate is not winning. You didn’t want to cover this, so you had to run with a complete garbage, bullshit story. Shame on each and every now of you.

    We had an incident this morning at about 6:45 a.m. We have photographic evidence on someone rummaging through our campaign HQ, and I belive it was Katie Hobbs. I will show you that photographic evidence. I hope you will cover this with the same vigor you covered everything else.

    We’re laughing, I know this is a joke, obviously, in case you didn’t figure it out. What I’m trying to tell you is it is a joke what you guys are doing in the news. and the world should know that you guys are not serious journalists when you cover this garbage. Shame on you, shame on you.

    This is the kind of garbage you guys spread.”

  10. Criticizing Fetterman for his political positions is fair game but for a speech impediment he acquired from a stroke, that’s beyond the pale. A man with a speech impediment can be a political leader. In fact, having any disability should not disqualify you. The Conservative party in Canada had an MP for years who was a quadriplegic. Fairly soon there will be a by-election in my district and my vote will go to a young woman with cerebral palsy. Having speech impediments is rarely a problem – I have a lisp, stutter and occasionally mix up my words yet I teach English and History and am quite good at it. A colleague with dyslexia taught high school English and is now a superintendent. When it comes to Pennsylvania you can vote for a man recovering from a stroke or you can vote for a man who kills puppies and sells quack medicine. It used to be a joke to accuse an opponent of killing puppies as the ultimate smear and yet here we are today with the Republicans campaigning for a puppy killer.

    Any person who goes on such an extended rant about media coverage is unfit for the office. Republicans call the “woke” crowd snowflakes but if a public figure is offended by a news story the label applies.

    Watching the polls, I continue to notice the difference between Registered Voter polls and Likely Voter polls. Democrats tend to win the former while Republicans the latter. Polling samples are based on the demographics of the previous election and then further targets likely voters. However, this might underestimated millennial voter turnout esp young women motivated by Dobbs. Looking at the Kansas primary the voter turnout was a record motivated solely by the refurrendum. Polling of “likely voters” said it was an even split on the abortion vote but the results were 60-40, mainly drived by young millenial women who had just registered to vote.

    While some poll observers are basing predictions on polls underestimating Republican voters as happened in the last two elections, I wouldn’t be too sure. If registered voters who aren’t counted heavily in the targeted democraphics of the pollsters actually vote, it will be the democratic vote that’s underestimated.

  12. Fedderman does not have a speech impediment. His stroke has left him with a thinking impediment. It was obvious on stage that even with his communication aids he was not able to think well in a debate. Comparing his condition to dyslexia or a speech impediment or quadriplegia is not at all appropriate.

    However, I will say that the current democratic party does not seem to require mental acuity or even mental stability to be elected to high office.
    So if the electorate in PA want a senator who cannot possibly debate proposals or bills—any ideas— coherently in the Senate, then Fedderman is their man.

  19. Currently, I have made the most accurate political predictions here. Two years ago I was almost perfect (called North Carolina instead of Georgia). Predicting the presidency is easy compared to the senate or especially the house.

    Right now Nevada, Penn, and Georgia are coin tosses. Ohio, Wisconsin, NC stay Republican. NH becomes Democratic and Arizona stays Democratic.

    Whether you agree with abortion rights or not, its a reality that millenials will definitely vote for abortion rights over a puppy killer. And if they are motivated to vote, the polls will be shown to underestimate Democratic support. Millenial (and younger) participation will determine the outcome of the midterms. And I think pollsters underestimated them in their poll sample sizes.

  20. Debra/AJ – without actually testing an individual or spending an inordinate amount of time with a person, speech impediments can be incredibly deceptive. The “good night” instead of “good evening” flub that Republicans like to play over and over again is very similar to errors in word choices I make.

    Judging someone’s mental ability by the positions they hold is ironically not too intelligent. For example AOC and Omar are quite intelligent whether you agree with their positions or not (Nadler is too long in the tooth) . Positions (like speaking ability) do not indicate intelligence. In most cases, political positions are derived from life experiences coupled with genetic inclinations towards empathy, absolutes, etc. The ability to defend these positions demonstrates intelligence. In both parties, many senators and reps rarely put forth an effort since they don’t have too – they rarely have to campaign especially those with a gerrymandered seat. (another reason gerrymandering is bad for democracy and shouldn’t be allowed). It’s simply hard to detect any intelligence when campaigning is so easy. Lake’s rant and raving make her suspect – defend your position and stop going on long tirades about those who you think are lying.

    I don’t think Walker has a speech impediment (but its a weird cadence not the stereotypical southern accent) but he does have difficulty defending his positions in a debate. Strangely, one Republican politican campaigning for him defended Walker’s errors by mentioning the concussions he suffered as a football player. So for the Republican party, thinking skills lost via concussion are okay but lost through a stroke are not?

  21. That’s a lot of tweets over an incident that I’ve seen very little coverage about (then again I don’t watch cable news). The right side of twitter/social media typically erects a strawman of opinion then tears it down.The left wing sites mention very little about it, other than to mention its an indication how over the top political rhetoric can have real life consquences. The point they make is the rhetoric leads to a mentally unstable individual attempting to assault a political figure.

  22. The WH is spreading misinformation (as usual) about the Pelosi “lovers’ quarrel” incident, and why is the MSM calling Depape a right-wing extremist when those who know him say the opposite?

    According to police reports, what we do know as fact is…
    1) When Pelosi called 911, he referred to the attacker as a friend;
    2) Both men were in their underwear;
    3) There is a third unidentified person who opened the door for police.

    How did DePape get into the Pelosi home (especially at that time in the morning) without security clearance? (Ahem…)

    As told by Dems, nothing about the story makes sense. It’s seems that just like Pelosi’s drunk driving incident, there is far more to this story that is all being swept under the rug. It’s a desperate cover-up…

Those who want to ‘speak’ into such subjects just need to spend some time down south in rural southern towns to better understand why some people speak as they do.

  24. If Pelosi was in his underwear, it could be because of the time of night that it was. Some people sleep in their underwear.

    It is possible that he referred to him as a friend because Mr. Pelosi was trying to keep the man as calm as he could while he tried to make the call. He tried to make the call surreptitiously, but DePape may have been able to overhear. Or it was misreported that he referred to him as a friend.

    We believers have to be SO careful not to tread on the ninth commandment. Various online sites are quick to post rumor and innuendo, the juicier the better. Christians should not be sharing that stuff around.

  27. I am sorry when I hear anyone has experienced violence, including Mr. Pelosi. I originally heard the same reports Tychicus mentioned (except only DePape was in underwear), and there seemed to be an allusion to a 3rd party who opened the door. Police statements are starting to backtrack or clarify if you prefer, so it’s hard to know what is real.

    However there is one fact that is indisputable: whitewashing a bad reputation or tarnishing a good one is corrupt. The Pelosis have the reputation they have created for themselves over the years. They’ve earned it. It speaks for itself if one has eyes to see or ears to hear. Many people have neither. And that goes a long way toward explaining the depravity our nation is experiencing right now. When you soft-pedal depravity, you just get more of it. We are in a season of reaping what we have sown.
