    “I met those in our society who had votes in the ensuing election and advised them:
    1) To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged to be most worthy.
    2) To speak no evil of the person they voted against.
    3) To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.”

  2. I don’t believe Christians should be sniggering about sin in anyone’s life or name calling those they disagree with. We are clearly warned in the bible not to laugh or rejoice over anyone’s misfortunes. A little humility is a good thing for all of us.

    As far as articles shared here, like anywhere else, I will check a little more to see what else is being said or reported about the subject. This is especially important during an election season.

    If someone posts something more about their location or their area of expertise, I am more inclined to listen. I would hope none of us suspend our brain about anything read here.

    We have at least one ad (I see many times a day) that makes the candidate look like she should be in prison for sure. That is a race I have no stake in. The ads would make me way too suspicious to be believed. I would be turned off by those who posted them in favor of the other candidate. I would dig a whole lot more if it were my election. I wouldn’t share the ads on here as if they were true.

    I do understand why there was such suspicion about what was going on in the Pelosi house. It is sad about the wild rumors. I certainly heard even worse ones told about our last president and his family of a sexual nature. I would not share them, but I am not sure that it is horrible for anyone to ever mention them. When I hear who is pushing such rumors, it warns me about the person pushing them. You do have to remember that sharing such things reflects on yourself and may lead people to accept or reject other things you share. It is a good thing to learn to communicate your viewpoint (and news) more effectively. It is also a good thing to realize that untruth can be delivered in very polite words. Delivering them politely doesn’t make them anymore true.

    Isn’t it interesting that God does not love lukewarm people? That is something we should ponder as well.

  3. Maybe an R controlled Congress can look into this come January.

    “IG: Biden’s $1B boondoggle to the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan unaccounted for

    Republicans say this will be a top issue following the mid-term elections”


    “he U.S. government gave $1.1 billion in U.S. tax dollars to Taliban-controlled Afghanistan in humanitarian aid since the U.S. withdrawal in August 2021 — and a top federal watchdog says several U.S. agencies are refusing to explain how the money was spent.

    The U.S. government remains Afghanistan’s single largest donor more than one year after the Taliban takeover of the country and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) says for the first time in history — they don’t have the answers.

    In SIGAR’s quarterly report to Congress the Inspector General explains that they are unable to track down how more than $1 billion taxpayer dollars was spent because multiple government agencies are refusing to cooperate.

    Inspector General John F. Sopko says, “SIGAR, for the first time in its history, is unable this quarter to provide Congress and the American people with a full accounting of this U.S. government spending due to the noncooperation of several U.S. government agencies.” Sopko adds that both United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which administers the majority of U.S. government spending for Afghanistan, and the Treasury Department “refused to cooperate with SIGAR in any capacity.”

    The Inspector General says the State Department was “selective” about what information it provided and failed to provide details of the agency-supported programs that the billion dollars in taxpayer money funded.

    FOX Business exclusively obtained letters from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and US AID Administrator Samantha Power — demanding accountability over $1.1 billion in taxpayer money that has been funneled to Taliban-controlled Afghanistan since the U.S. military’s exit.

    Gaetz wrote in his letters: “I found it even more shocking, and maddening, that much of these illicit fund transfers are unaccounted for because your Department withheld information in violation of federal law.””

  6. Biden and Dems built this.


    ““The Biden administration is hiding information on how it aids and abets the trafficking of unaccompanied alien children,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We aim to expose and hold accountable the Biden administration for its trafficking of countless children.”

    Judicial Watch has delved extensively into the tragedy of Unaccompanied Alien Children.

    In August 2022, Judicial Watch revealed that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) busted hundreds of adult illegal aliens posing as minors to dodge deportation. El Paso Border Patrol Sector reported it had seen an unusual amount of activity involving adults posing as minors to dodge deportation. In El Paso alone, CBP confirmed that more than 655 adult migrants posing as minors have been arrested in fiscal year 2022.

    In September 2021, Judicial Watch received records from the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement that list 33 separate incidences of alleged sexual abuse against UACs in a one-month time period.

    In July 2018, after a three-year delay, Judicial Watch obtained records containing nearly 1,000 summaries of Significant Incident Reports (SIRs) from HHS revealing that UACs processed during the Obama administration included admitted murderers, rapists, drug smugglers, prostitutes, and human traffickers.”

  11. My 92 year old mother watches the morning “news”. Imagine her hearing that the republicans spread false information. Guess what…she heard it thus believes it! Further more these lying misinformationist know it! All they have to do is put it out there knowing there are non thinking Americans sitting in their recliners listening to their lies and believing them. I also happen to have friends in their 60’s who do the same thing. Put out the false narrative and once it’s in their minds they believe it.
    Those pulling the strings of the current President know it too…if his lips are moving…he’s lying! Critical thinking is something not taught nor practiced any longer sadly.

    As to the Pelosi situation. No one with half a heart delights in a brutal attack on anyone much less an elderly person. I don’t know what was going on in that house but someone does and the lies and coverup are obvious. Truth is truth and in this case there are those not wanting the truth to be known…it’s not the republicans.

  13. Sunshine and exposing the truth to the light of day would clear all this up.

    And that’s why they won’t release it. Just like Jan6, hide the evidence that doesn’t fit your narrative.


    “End The Intrigue, Release the Pelosi Surveillance and Police Bodycam Video

    A mysteriously retracted NBC News report with new details adds to speculation – put it all to rest, release the surveillance and police bodycam video.”

    Happens almost every time in high profile politicized criminal cases — the media immediately report facts that turn out to be wrong, and fear of political pressure causes the police not to release evidence that further clouds what happened. Meanwhile, the political spin, almost invariably against the political opponents of Democrats, goes into overdrive.

    I covered this phenomenon, with numerous examples we have covered at Legal Insurrection, in my initial post about the incident currently dominating Democrat (including Joe Biden) attacks on Republicans and “mega MAGA”, Paul Pelosi Attack – Follow The Evidence, Not The Media Spin.

    Initial media reports said Pelosi and the alleged attacker, David DePape, were accompanied by a third person who opened the door for police. Then the reports changed, including in the FBI affidavit supporting federal charges.

    It turns out there apparently was video surveillance of the home by the Capitol Police, but they weren’t watching, that shows DePape breaking in. That tape would put to rest a lot of claims that DePape was invited into the house. Why not release it?

    Why not release the police bodycam video? That is routinely done in police shootings to calm public opinion, or at least to get the facts of what happened with evidence. While the Pelosi attack was not a police use of force, it was possibly a police failure to use force fast enough, allowing DePape to hit Pelosi on the head with a hammer. It’s in the public interest for the public to see if the police failed to act, particularly where the attack has become a political talking point.

    Now, it gets stranger.

    NBC News reported earlier today that when police arrived, Pelosi opened the door and seeing the police did not do what you would think someone effectively being held hostage would do – move toward the police for protection. Instead, NBC News reported Pelosi moved back into the house towards his attacker.”

  15. Rule #1.

    Don’t mess with people’s kids, because nothing unites people faster.


    ” Khalil Othman has a message for Michigan, and for CBS late night host Stephen Colbert: The Dearborn resident exists and is committed to voting for Republican Tudor Dixon for governor.

    “She is standing up for families,” Othman told a cheering crowd at a Friday evening rally for Dixon. “She’s the last line of defense.”

    Othman, a Muslim American immigrant and father of five, attended an event for Dixon last month and told her of his concerns about sexually explicit content he had found in the school library.

    Although he has long been a Democrat, Othman has said that he will vote Republican this year because he feels his party has ignored him. Dixon, in contrast, has listened to him and his community about the books in public schools.

    She shares his concerns.

    ‘Save our kids’
    Dixon related her encounter with Othman at the second October debate with her opponent, incumbent Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Shortly thereafter, Colbert played clips from the debate on his network TV show and accused Dixon of making up this encounter and questioned the father’s existence.

    In the final days before the election, Dixon says it’s parents like Othman she is hearing from the most as she travels the state. And education could be the issue that helps push Dixon to victory. She says the message she’s gotten from voters is clear.

    “’Save our kids,’” Dixon told me Friday, during an interview on her campaign bus ahead of a rally in Metro Detroit’s Macomb County. “That’s what I keep hearing when I talk to folks.” “

  16. “Vote for Republicans and Against Fake News”


    “Tomorrow is Election Day, and what I would like to write today is a column about the irrationality of voting for a Democrat, any Democrat, in a country their party has run into the ground in less than two years.

    That would be such an easy column to write. I could literally just plagiarize any Republican candidate’s campaign ad for House or Senate or governor. Start with inflation. Real people can’t just give up the equivalent of one month’s salary a year to bankroll reckless spending on electric vehicles, unconstitutional student loan forgiveness, and a war in Ukraine. Then we could turn to interest rates, which are rising so fast that millions of Americans suddenly can’t afford to buy a house.

    Move from the economy to crime. Then immigration. COVID lockdowns. Sexualizing elementary schools. Only an idiot would vote for a Democrat.

    Yet somewhere close to half the people will vote for Democrats – as if the future of the country doesn’t mean anything to them. How could they be so out of touch?

    The answer is simple. These voters are not to blame. They are the victims of a conspiracy so broad that it blends into the background, comforting and as comfortable as a well-worn shoe. Namely, the partnership between the news media and the Democratic Party to vilify all things Republican.

    Of course, Joe Biden is doing his best to imitate “Uncle Joe” Stalin, with his speeches excoriating free elections and free thought, but he couldn’t do it alone. He can barely pull 100 people off the streets to listen to one of his out-of-the-basement speeches, but he doesn’t need to do it alone. Just like Stalin had Pravda, Biden has the media to celebrate his edicts and denunciations and to cover up his compulsion to sniff young girls’ hair.

    As a longtime Montana newspaperman, I have been at odds with the establishment media for two decades, but even I am shocked by how blatantly devoted the major voices in the media have become to the Democratic party line. According to the New York Times or network news, Americans who want to have confidence in the integrity of U.S. elections are “election deniers.” Parents who want to protect girls’ locker rooms from being infiltrated by boys with penises (and that used to be the only kind) are “transphobes.” Anyone objecting to 5 million illegal immigrants being welcomed across the border by the Biden administration’s policies are racist “replacement theory” conspiracists.

    It goes on and on. And so today my closing argument before the election is to reject not just the Democrats and their pro-abortion obsession, but to expose the entire media superstructure that has propped them up.”

    “Democrats Spending Fortune on Fake News in Campaign Final Stretch”


    “Democrats are campaigning on the claim that the “fate of our democracy” is on the ballot this Tuesday. They insist that “misinformation” is one of the greatest threats to the survival of the republic. And to “solve” the alleged information crisis and preserve their political power, Democratic billionaires are spending tens of millions of dollars promoting fake news outlets to manipulate gullible voters.

    The Left has spent the last few election cycles mastering a dark art of professionalized “pink slime” propaganda. I know this because I helped expose these machinations during the 2021 Virginia election cycle as an investigative reporter. The Left is “faking” some news by disguising partisan advertising as information from legitimate local publications. Partisan Democratic operatives have hired former liberal journalists to craft stories that attack Republicans in contested races, and then surround these pieces with non-political content. Voters are receiving this propaganda in their mailboxes and on various digital platforms. The biggest names in the Democratic donor community, including George Soros and Reid Hoffman (whose misinformation efforts have previously helped Democrats flip a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama), are financing many of these opaque information operations.

    Two of the most notable agitprop architects are long-time liberal hitman David Brock and a former campaign digital staffer named Tara McGowan. Both operatives practice exactly what they routinely inveigh against. Brock has lamented that “misinformation is an existential threat to democracy,” while McGowan claims her vocational mission is to counter disinformation.

    Brock’s American Independent conglomerate, which entails numerous state-level iterations, is in actuality anything but independent. His hyper-partisan network is backed by a reported $28 million budget. It contains affiliated outlets in five battlegrounds: Arizona, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The Independent’s physical propaganda physically resembles a local newspaper, and even includes a crossword puzzle. According to The Washington Post, the Pennsylvania iteration of the Independent has a circulation of 953,000—which makes this partisan rag the most widely circulated newspaper in the Keystone State. Facebook has removed several of their stories that were boosted in Pennsylvania and Arizona for violating the platform’s advertising terms.

    As for McGowan, her Courier Newsroom constellation consists of locally branded publications in eight battleground states: Arizona, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Virginia. McGowan recently proclaimed to have raised more than $15 million this cycle. Her network has quietly begun unleashing that war chest on social media, with a barrage of advertising across the states where Courier operates. Courier’s targets include Republican candidates such as Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), Dr. Oz, Tudor Dixon (Michigan), and Chuck Grassley (Iowa).

    Brock, McGowan, and their defenders claim their media efforts are not “fake news” because they are not literally fabricating information out of whole cloth. But the descriptor “fake news” should still apply because of the deceptive intent. They sought funding in order to electioneer; the façade of journalism is just their preferred vehicle. After the 2021 Virginia elections, Brock’s Independent ran surveys to measure whether receiving its “newspapers” changed voter behavior. A staffer was quoted boasting that recipients were more likely to vote for the Democratic nominee for governor. McGowan recently claimed that Courier isn’t focused on electoral results—which is at odds with both her operation’s current advertising and its previous boasts.

    McGowan made her electioneering agenda clear while discussing her prototype publication, The Dogwood, in a leaked 2019 memo to “interested parties”: “[The Dogwood] will not only function to support the flipping of both State House and State Senate chambers in Virginia this November, but will serve as a vehicle to test, learn from, and scale best practices to new sites as we grow.”

    McGowan’s “moonshot” vision would see each partisan site “pair original reporting and aggregated content with our ad placement and political targeting expertise to distribute these stories to strategic segments of voters before, during, and between election cycles.” Her plan, in 2019, was to “drive strategic narratives to key audiences” through “targeted ads and boosted posts across Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, Twitter, and other online properties.” She outlined how her “content and political teams” would work closely with Democratic campaigns and aligned third-party outfits.

    The key to McGowan’s deceptive practice can be found in her leaked memo’s claim about how her previous work had shown “how much more effective boosting and targeting owned media and news content online was over pre-produced ‘ads’ at influencing a voter’s support for or against a candidate or issue.” Simply put: If donors wanted to make a wise investment in advertising, they should disguise the ads to resemble actual journalism and let Democratic campaigns reap the rewards. These are not typical functions of any legitimate news agency, and the final bit should disqualify any spin McGowan has ever offered about Courier’s purpose.

    Records show that Courier previously spent millions on this “journalism-as-advertising” trick trying to elect Democrats across the country. The type of faux-reporting Courier defends was described by Politico as “mostly a rewrite” of a Democratic congressman’s press release. Steven Brill, founder of media watchdog NewsGuard, detests what the “condescending” and “self-righteous” McGowan has built. Brill laments that “her life’s work is undermining trust” in the press.

    This summer, McGowan held a secret meeting with White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain about how President Joe Biden could benefit from her operation. What was discussed at that meeting remains unknown, but it deserves further scrutiny. It is reported that Biden is about to bless a group called Future Forward to be his official Super PAC. At the end of the 2020 election, Future Forward ran a $100 million TV and digital ad campaign that prominently featured Courier’s “journalism” to help Biden get elected—a role Courier was designed to play.”

  18. DENVER (AP) — A Colorado man who is a registered Democratic voter has been arrested on suspicion of tampering with voting equipment in an incident in which the man is accused of inserting a USB thumb drive into a voting machine at a polling station during the primary election in June, authorities said.
    Richard Patton, 31, of Pueblo was arrested on Thursday by members of the Pueblo Police Department High-Tech Crime Unit for investigation of tampering with voting equipment, a felony, and cybercrime-unauthorized access, the department said in a statement.

    No secure elections data was breached in the June 28 incident, Pueblo police said. But it heightened concerns among election officials and security experts that conspiracy theories related to the 2020 presidential election could inspire some voters to meddle with — or even attempt to sabotage — election equipment.

    Say what???? A Democrat (you know the party who really really cares about the VOTE!) tries to tamper with a voting machine in June, gets arrested just a couple days ago and this concerns election officials that “conspiracy” theorists will be “inspired” to meddle with equipment???? Spin spin spin with no rinse cycle!!!! And our “esteemed” Secretary of State….the gal who sent out 30,000 ballots to illegal invaders of our nation says she has it all under control…such a hero is she!
    I don’t believe this state will return to Red but it sure would be great if it turned a bit more purple at least.

  19. I apologize if I offended anyone with my comments mentioning the 9th commandment.

    Perhaps sharing an article that mentions that kind of story is not “technically” breaking the 9th commandment. But please consider that we should be so careful about not disparaging the reputations of others (which is what that commandment is really about) that we should be more circumspect about sharing something that might do that, even if we think the report is true. As I said last night, I am not referring merely to facts that could turn out to be false, but specifically to this kind of story that accuses someone of sexual sin or other sins/wrongdoing.

    I would assume that if someone is mistakenly charged with an offense or is being investigated for an offense they didn’t commit, the fact of the charge or investigation is news. (Thinking out loud here.)

    My reaction was more towards the fact that I have seen some Christians not merely share the articles, but make those accusations against Pelosi in their own words. In fact, someone did that on the news thread a couple days or so after the attack.


  20. I drove through Pueblo once. Some of my family’s ancestors heading west in covered wagons made that stop back in the day.

    I’m sorry for my part in last night’s sometimes heated thread.

    M, @8:54?, good (and hard for all of us) standards to follow.

    Re criticizing the “other side” — criticizing actions and issues should be our focus, not personal attacks.

    No political party or politician is perfect (or “good” in that ultimate sense of the standards none of us can meet); they will all be flawed, often deeply. We should not shirk from admitting it when “our side” or our candidate stumbles and does or speaks or behaves in a wrong or dishonoring way. It will happen. And it does, usually a lot, no matter what side of the aisle you are on and believe to be superior. (See Jesus’ story about the two men praying in the temple).

    It is always amazingly easy to see the sin in others, not so much in ourselves. It’s the human condition. But we as believers have an answer on how to recognize and deal with that all-to-human tendency.

    On sharing news that puts people, even public figures, in an especially bad moral light, even if it has been confirmed to be true: We still have discretion as believers on how and whether to do that in certain cases. Our higher standard as followers of Christ should give us pause first, knowing we are all prone to fall, sometimes glaringly — but more so if we aren’t even asking the questions of ourselves. The choice: We can share a news item, not share it, or share it carefully.

    We can also always “edit” (or delete) before hitting that post button. I’ve failed on that point (fairly frequently, I fear) and am asking God for more self-control when tempted to forget that in a state of emotional reaction and haste to get MY opinion in there.

    The Pelosi story still has legs? Why?

    Andy Ngo would be amusing if people didn’t take him seriously

    On a per capita basis, New York has less violence than most American cities under 60K. The US is the most violent country in the western world and it doesn’t matter if its a small town or if its New York, the rates are all similar. Violence is a bipartisan issue. By blaming one city or party over the other, you miss the real issue. Why is the US more violent than the rest of the West?

    Republican led investigations will be even more useless than Democratic led investigations. Does the Republican party even have a platform?

    “Do it for the children” – ban books not guns; what a slogan to have.

    An interesting thing about many voter “cheating” stories I hear is its simply a Democrat or Republican believing the current discourse on how easy it is to cheat. A Republican was caught voting for his dead wife. He heard that Democrats always let the dead vote so he thought he could do it. I’m sure the fellow with the USB heard similar tales of how simple it was to change the votes. Fact is American elections are incredibly hard to manipulate.


  28. VDH nails it again.

    “The Pathetic Democratic Pantheon

    Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Nancy Pelosi are of no use to the Left in the midterms because it is their radical ideology that was finally enacted and wrecked the country.”


    “Over the last few months the four icons of the Democratic Party—Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Nancy Pelosi—have hit the campaign trail.

    They’ve weighed in on everything from “right-wing violence” and “election denialists” to the now tired “un-American” semi-fascist MAGA voter—and had nothing much to say about inflation, the border, crime, energy, or the Afghanistan debacle. In this, they remind us just how impoverished and calcified is this left-wing pantheon.

    So why should we take anything they say seriously, given their own records—and especially given their mastery of projecting their own shortcomings upon others as some sort of private exculpation or preemptive political strategy?

    Still Hopin’ and Changin’?
    Barack Obama this past week has assumed the role of surrogate president. He is storming the country, while Joe Biden mopes at home or visits shrinking blue enclaves so he can claim post facto, “At least I was out there stumping.”

    Over the last six years, we have become accustomed to Obama’s periodic getaways from one of his three estates. It is always the same. From time to time, he reenters politics to remind us that he did not just cash in on his presidency to become a multi-millionaire. Instead, he is still the Chicago “community activist” of his youth. And so, Obama will not be overshadowed by the Biden crew that is enacting all the crazy things he as president had warned were a bit much even for him.

    At the funeral of the late John Lewis, Obama turned his eulogy into a political rant. He weighed in on the “racist” filibuster, the “Jim Crow relic” that he desperately sought in vain to use to stop the appointment of Justice Samuel Alito.

    At campaign stops, he deplores “divisions” that he, more than any modern figure, helped create. The entire left-wing vocabulary of disparagement for the white lower-working classes (e.g., deplorables, dregs, chumps, irredeemables, etc.) got its start with Obama’s putdown of Pennsylvania voters who rejected him in the 2008 primaries as “clingers.”

    In interviews, Obama suddenly now blasts harsh rhetoric—this from the wannabe tough guy who stole the “The Untouchables” line about bringing a knife to a gun fight. Well before crazy Maxine Waters’ calls to arms, Obama advised his supporters “get in their faces.”

    Still, on the campaign trail, Obama appears not so much animated as stale. It is as if he has been suddenly stirred from a long coma that commenced in 2008. It’s the same old, same old—sleeves rolled up. He still resorts to the scripted outbursts of mock anger. And the nerdy prep school graduate still amateurishly modulates his patois—now policy wonk, now breaking into the Southern African-American pastor accent when an audience needs more preachy authenticity.

    He still tries to rev up his crowds with the familiar attacks: Republican demons will cut Social Security, the MAGA semi-fascists are captives of Donald Trump (as if the Democrats have not ceded their souls to woke hysterics), the Republican fanatics will all but kill women by denying abortions, and extremists unlike himself are dividing the country.

    On and on, Obama shouts about social justice. And then he wraps up and must decide to which of his mansions he will fly home (via private jet)—Kalorama, Martha’s Vineyard, Hyde Park, or soon the Waimanalo estate.

    Obama offers no solutions much less hints at his own culpability in his sermons. There is nothing about the open border he helped birth. Nothing about Biden’s failed energy policies now bankrupting the middle class that were simply a reification of his energy secretary Steven Chu’s perverse wishes for European-priced gas (“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”).

    There is nothing about Obama’s old boasts about shutting down coal plants and skyrocketing electricity (“Under my plan . . . electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”).

    Nothing is said about the Skip Gates psychodrama and his blanket stereotyped attack on police, the tossing of his own grandmother under the racial bus, the Trayvon Martin racial editorialization, the Ferguson mythologies, and all his efforts to create a binary nation of oppressors and oppressed, as Obama himself determined who is the victim, who the victimizer.”


  29. Starting next year, every Colorado 4-year-old will have a chance to attend preschool at no cost to their parents, under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Jared Polis.

    “With this bill, families in Colorado with 4-year-olds will have access to free preschool in the fall of 2023, saving them money and preparing kids for success,” said Polis, noting the benefits his own children experienced from preschool.

    I just had lunch with my daughter. She is a tutor at her children’s charter school. This school has a pre school program. They are choosing not to join in with Polis’ amazing pre school program. First off they must be “state” certified. Meaning they must go through “training=indoctrination”. “Gender sensitive” training. Pro noun uses….no referring to the children as “boys and girls”. This is all garbage and if they are so proud of it why are they not revealing their agenda to the masses? My daughter said she was disgusted and in shock at what this wonderful governor is being allowed to do to the children in our state. But there are parents who will willingly enroll their precious babes because it is FREE!!!!
