Democrat racism

PJMediaLiberals believe that because of their “solidarity” with black people, they can criticize white people as if their own skin is of a little darker hue. Take Lamar County Democratic Party Chairman Gary O’Connor. The Texas Democratic leader did his best Jesse Jackson impersonation in describing Scott’s statement.

“I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an oreo with no real principles,” Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post, referring to Scott’s rebuttal to President Biden’s congressional address on Wednesday.

Calling black people who don't agree with you "oreos" is classic racism, even if you are black as in this case. Note, again, that it's Democrats doing it.

To his credit, O'Connor has since resigned.

Why hasn't the white Democrat governor of Virginia, who wore either blackface or a Klan robe for his college yearbook photo?

Mind you, the black Democrat's resignation wasn't actually accepted, so I guess the Democrats are consistently against consequences for racism. And I sort of wonder if that outcome was discussed before the offer to resign was made?

Teacher's unions successfully lobbying CDC about reopening rules

New York PostThe American Federation of Teachers lobbied the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on, and even suggested language for, the federal agency’s school-reopening guidance released in February.

The powerful teachers union’s full-court press preceded the federal agency putting the brakes on a full re-opening of in-person classrooms, emails between top CDC, AFT and White House officials show.

Did you think those guidelines were based on apolitical science? You thought wrong.

CA's handgun "safety" list violates 2nd Amendment

Second Amendment FoundationThe Second Amendment Foundation is applauding a ruling by a federal judge in Southern California that a provision in the state’s new handgun roster law, requiring the removal of three handguns already on the roster that can be sold, to make room for each new handgun added to the list may violate the Second Amendment.

The ruling by U.S. District Chief Judge Dana Sabraw, is a slap at California’s law, which took effect Jan. 1 of this year. The lawsuit was brought by SAF, the San Diego County Gun Owners PAC, Firearms Policy Coalition and a private citizen, Lana Rae Renna, for whom the case Renna v. Becerra is named. They sued California in November. Plaintiffs are represented by attorneys Raymond DiGuiseppe of Southport, N.C. and Michael Sousa of San Diego.

In his 15-page ruling, Judge Sabraw, a George W. Bush appointee, ruled that plaintiffs “have sufficiently pled the UHA (“Unsafe Handgun Act”) substantially impacts their Second Amendment rights and thus burdens conduct protected by the Amendment.”

It feels like the Supremes finally taking a gun case has opened the floodgates.

And obviously this is unconstitutional. If you have to remove three guns on the list in order to add one, eventually your list will have just one or two guns on it and no other models -- ever -- will be allowed.

FBI using NSA databases without warrants -- again -- STILL

Just The NewsThe FBI has without court orders looked through troves of National Security Agency foreign communications for information on American "racially motivated violent extremists," according to a news report based on a recently declassified report.

The agency conducted the reviews despite being warned several years ago by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which approves warrants for such investigations, that such inquiries were constitutionally alarming, according to the Daily Beast.

The FBI’s warrant-free queries, known as backdoor searches, were related to criminal investigations including those on "domestic terrorism involving racially motivated violent extremists."

The legality of these investigations stops at without court orders. There's no exception in the 4th Amendment for terrorism, regardless of motivation or potential for violence. (If international contacts are involved, that is murkier, but even in such situations communications of US persons are supposed to be protected). It's clear that with Trump out of office, the FBI is doubling down on Spygate and political investigations.

And don't forget that the FBI has been trying for decades to smear the right in general, and Donald Trump supporters in particular, as white supremacists. Which makes me think that's who those queries are targeting.

This is not an isolated problem. Seven separate field offices were involved, meaning not just the Washington, DC group.

More opinionated analysis here.

FISC hires Mary McCord, implicated in SpyGate, as Amici Curiae

Conservative TreehouseI hate to write this, but there is just no good way to look at this. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, specifically Presiding Judge James Boasberg, has hired former DOJ National Security Division head, Mary McCord, as amici curiae advisor to the court. [LINK] The placement was first noted by an announcement from Georgetown Law ICAP.

Presiding Judge James Boasberg, is the decision-maker in the appointment of Amici Curiae to the FISA court. There is no way, NO WAY, Judge Boasberg does not know Mary McCord was at the epicenter of the fraudulent FISA application used against Carter Page. Remember, in addition to being the FISC Presiding Judge, Boasberg was also the trial judge in the case against Kevin Clinesmith, the FBI lawyer who lied about Page working for the CIA on the FISA application. {Go Deep}

I was skeptical about Boasberg since the last person he hired in this role, who also had SpyGate connections. These are much more blatant. I agree with Sundance here; the FISC is now obviously and undeniably compromised. Whether that's willing cooperation or blackmail is irrelevant. I suspect it's willing; you don't get on that court unless you've already been vetted by the Deep State.

FBI raids Giuliani, Toensing

Conservative TreehouseAccording to media reports federal authorities raided the New York apartment of Rudy Giuliani today. Apparently electronic devices were seized as part of their investigation into him. However, the DOJ motive behind the investigation is something everyone should be familiar with, Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA).

FARA violations being used as a backdoor justification for political targeting has long been the approach of a weaponized DOJ. They are using that same tactic again in their effort to target Rudy Giuliani.

This is nakedly political.

It's unclear what exactly they were looking for, but the election audit in Arizona is also getting a lot of attempted legal interference, and Trump gave interviews on that topic the day before the raid where he said he was being kept up to date on the results. Likely, the FBI were really looking for information about the results of that audit (which is ongoing). It's not the first time they have targeted Giuliani. And of course before that they targeted another Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, who eventually broke -- but had nothing on Trump.

They raided Victoria Toensing at about the same time. The warrant mentioned John Solomon. It's purportedly about Ukraine. But once they have seized all electronic devices, they can search those devices for whatever they want to know. Legally? Of course not; legally they are only supposed to look for evidence of crimes listed on the warrant. But in practice? Everything.

The election gun is smoking

I wrote earlier that election auditors demonstrated the ability to swap vote totals on election machines in Antrim County, where such a swap was in fact observed. I also wrote that they had not reported evidence that such a swap had actually been performed, just that it could be performed. It now appears we have taken the next step.

UncoverDCNotably, unauthorized software called SQL Management Studio \version 17.1 was installed on the Antrim County Election Management System (EMS)—as reported by Doug Logan of Cyber Ninjas in a report on April 9, 2021. “This software is not certified b5, the Election Assistance Commission for use on electronic voting systems,” as reported in Lenberg’s expert summary.

Lenberg also wrote that “vote modification can be pre-planned and deployed prior to an election. ElectionSource staff possesses all of the administrative access” to modify the vote tally files. He also explained that he was able to “replicate the election inaccuracies observed in the November 3, 2020 election” when he ran his tests on the equipment.

ElectionSource had access to other counties across Michigan...
The counties “appeared in the Userlnfo log file on the EMS” and were “opened projects” during the “same timeframe as the files that ElectionSource technicians were working to configure and deploy project files for Antrim County.”

There's some substantial new information here. The initial report demonstrated that the election database could be hacked using an SQL tool, with admin access. Lenberg is alleging that the election management system in Antrim
County had that tool installed on it, which is not allowed, and that the log files show that ElectionSource had the necessary admin access and were logged as accessing the election files for many other counties during the same time as they were working in Antrim.

He also indicates that the Antrim County Clerk authorized staff to remove files and data from the voting machines the day after the election.

The classic trifecta of means, motive, and opportunity. Plus, if you weren't convinced already, the damning cover up of the crime.

Democrats try to involve DOJ in blocking Arizona election audit

Conservative TreehouseAfter the Democrat Secretary of State failed to get the Arizona State Attorney General to initiate an investigation of the audit; and after a Democrat state judge rejected the Democrat effort for a temporary restraining order; and after all other efforts have failed…. now we see three outside left-wing election groups (claiming bipartisanship yet led by lawyers from NYU) asking the DOJ to intervene in the Maricopa County, Arizona, ballot audit.

The audit started on April 23. A judge on April 28 rejected the attempt by Democrats to halt the process.

The Brennan Center, Protect Democracy and The Leadership Conference have signed a letter to the civil rights division of the DOJ asking them to get involved.

The Dems are clearly freaking out about this audit, but still trying to do it quietly without a lot of publicity.

How the voting machines can be hacked

Gateway PunditMatthew DePerno: We have the proof that voting machines used in the 2020 elections can be compromised and votes easily transferred from one candidate to another. We can flip votes at the tabulator/precinct level. We can flip votes at the county level. The American people are losing their voice for the future of our democracy. We must fight together for free and fair elections.

2. Michigan elections happening today. Do you think putting your intent on a ballot matters? Machines convert data and data can be manipulated...

Matthew DePerno says he will be able to show the tabulator tapes at the precinct lever were different than the paper ballots.

Matt Deperno shows, on video, how the election machines can be hacked to show different results and alter the reported outcome without matching the input ballots.

There are two catches here. One, the hack demonstrated is some simple SQL commands, which would generally require access to the database. He hasn't demonstrated how he obtained that access -- but lots of people in an election administration staff could have such access. Two, he doesn't demonstrate that the actual election was modified this way, just that it could be done with admin access to the database.

That said, it may be impossible to demonstrate the second part, if the machines are hackable and fail to keep appropriate logs.

They found Pelosi's laptop! No, not really...

Gateway PunditThe FBI this week raided a Homer, Alaska couple’s home looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop.

12 agents broke down the Hueper’s front door with their guns drawn, separated the husband and wife, cuffed them, seized their electronics and interrogated them for 3 hours.

After a 3 hour interrogation, it turned out it was a case of mistaken identity.

The Hueper’s just happened to be on vacation in DC the same week Trump spoke at the Ellipse on January 6 and decided to attend the rally, however they never entered the Capitol building.

Granting what was likely an honest (if not very competent) mistaken identity, treating people like this is entirely unnecessary.

Except, of course, for its political necessity in intimidating the people.

Census shenanigans

Just The NewsHouse Republicans are querying the Biden administration on what they claim may have been possible interference from the White House in the 2020 census data, citing "questionable" properties of that data.

Nearly 20 House Republicans on the House Oversight Committee released a letter Friday sent to Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo. In the letter, the lawmaker say they are addressing “concerns about the apportionment count released by the U.S. Census Bureau” this week.

"Given the extra time it took to complete the 2020 Census – including not meeting the statutory deadlines by months – we have questions about the methodology and the role the Biden White House may have played in releasing these numbers," the letter says, "especially as the results differ from evaluation estimates released mere months ago in ways that benefit blue states over red states."

When you compare the estimated numbers to the final results, they all seem to favor blue states (higher than estimated) and disfavor red states (lower than estimated). For example, Arizona (red state) was estimated at 7,421,401 and the final number was 7,151,502. Almost 300,000 people missing. Since each House seat is about 700,000 people, I would not be at all surprised if those numbers were massaged to move the needle over the line in the Democrat direction.

There could be other causes, but given the stink the Democrats were making about the census and the delay in reporting 2020 census results, plus how close the House is right now, smart money says Biden massaged those numbers.

A simple cure for COVID?

WATEDrugmaker Pfizer is currently testing a single pill cure for COVID-19, and if all goes well, the drug could be available this year.

The drug, called PF-07321332, is currently in a Phase One clinical trial with healthy adults.

According to the Telegraph, the protease inhibitor may be available as soon as this year.

The pill was unveiled at the American Chemical Society Spring 2021 meeting in early April. The drug works by targeting the main protease of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. By inhibiting the protease, the drug prevents the virus from reproducing itself within the body...

Protease inhibitors are currently used to treat HIV around the world.

If this is accurate, there's no need to push the questionable vaccinations.

It's that last sentence that bugs me. Fauci spent decades trying and failing to solve the HIV problem. That this application is coming from that field makes me wonder how he is involved and profiting from the situation.

And if you read closely, this doesn't read like a cure. It may prevent replication and thus major symptoms. But you'll have to buy it again and again each time you get the virus. (Assuming you even notice). Will it interfere with natural immunity developing?

Even with all of the above caveats, it's good to have options.

TX Gov willing to sign Constitutional Carry

BreitbartGov. Greg Abbott (R) says he supports constitutional carry for Texas and will sign legislation doing away with a permit requirement if it reaches his desk.

On April 16, 2021, Breitbart News reported the Texas House passed legislation to abolish the requirement that law-abiding citizens get a permit from the state government before carrying a concealed handgun for self-defense.

KVUE/Texas Tribune notes when the legislation first appeared in the Senate, there did not appear to be enough support to pass it. However, “momentum” for passage of the legislation is now growing at an “unprecedented” rate in the state Senate.

This would be a good time to call your Texas Senators about this bill. And any others which strike your fancy. May I recommend for your consideration the camping ban?

School teachers encouraged to post fake curriculum for parents

Daily WireFaced with complaints from parents about the indoctrination of children, an official in Rockwood School District, Missouri, instructed teachers to create two sets of curriculum: a false one to share with parents, and then the real set of curriculum, focused on topics like activism and privilege, according to a memo obtained by The Daily Wire.

It is no longer possible to offer the benefit of the doubt and the presumption of good intentions to those involved in indoctrinating children. They know what they are doing. They know it is wrong.

Court strikes down Illinois FOID requirement

Second Amendment FoundationAn Illinois Circuit Court Judge in White County has ruled the requirement for possessing a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card to possess a gun in the home is unconstitutional under the Second Amendment.

The case is known as Illinois v. Vivian Claudine Brown. Her case is supported by the Second Amendment Foundation and Illinois State Rifle Association. According to Brown’s attorney, David Sigale of Wheaton, Ill., this is the second time a judge has declared the FOID Card Act unconstitutional, dismissing the charges against Brown, who had a bolt-action rifle in her home, but did not possess an FOID card.

This is a small but significant step forward, as the FOID card itself represents an effective state level registration list of who owns a gun even if it does not map individuals to specific firearms. The card itself also represents a prior permission requirement.

CA officials participated in censorship decisions by Big Tech

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch announced today that it received 540 pages and a supplemental four pages of documents from the office of the Secretary of State of California revealing how state officials pressured social media companies (Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube)) to censor posts about the 2020 election. Included in these documents were “misinformation briefings” emails that were compiled by communications firm SKDK, that lists Biden for President as their top client of 2020. The documents show how the state agency successfully pressured YouTube to censor a Judicial Watch video concerning the vote by mail and a Judicial Watch lawsuit settlement about California voter roll clean up.

... and by participated, I mean "Told them what to censor."

This pretty much invalidates the claim that Big Tech are private actors and thus immune to the 1st Amendment.

UPDATE: Iowa did the same thing. How many others?

Supreme Court agrees to take up major Second Amendment case

Just The NewsThe Supreme Court said Monday that next term it will consider a Second Amendment case concerning a New York law that restricts a person from carrying a concealed handgun in public, marking roughly a decade since justices have ruled on a significant case about gun rights.

Josh Blackman reads the tea leaves, and David Hardy has some possible ideas.

My take is that the court wants to strike down may-issue concealed carry licensing, while leaving shall-issue licensing in place. They may even want to be specific about what may issue regimes are allowed.

This will be the first 2nd Amendment case the Supreme Court has taken up in some time, and how the justices vote will be closely scrutinized.

FBI finally releases heavily redacted Seth Rich documents

COVID vaccines applied by force

Gateway PunditCalifornia officials were filmed forcing mentally handicapped patients to get the COVID-19 vaccination.
The patients were filmed screaming and crying so the officials held them down so they could get their COVID shot.

This was all part of the “Operation Homebound” program initiated by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva. The program is designed to vaccinate the most underrepresented, homebound, and underserved disabled residents in Los Angeles, including those experiencing homelessness. According to the LA Sheriff’s Department — LASD is working with local community based organizations like “Integrated Community Collaborative” and “Disability Voices United” to connect with LA County residents most in need, go to their residences, and provide them this life-saving opportunity.

This is disgusting. People have the right to physical and medical autonomy. And it makes a mockery of any claim that support for abortion is a matter of principle.

Paying social media influencers to push the vaccine

Michelle MalkinOne Instagram star and fashion blogger with 409,000 followers, South Carolina entrepreneur Whitney Rife Becker, spilled the beans on how “two vaccine campaigns paying thousands of dollars” had contacted her to “go and get the vaccine and record it and take a selfie while getting the vaccine.” She was asked to tell her followers how “excited” she was to take the vaccine and to gush about “how much she would be able to do” once she submitted to her shots. She was promised that an unnamed entity would “put money behind” her Instagram videos or photo posts if she boosted the COVID vaccine.

Becker rejected the offers, but many others have accepted the bribery. Sometimes, the quid pro quos mean cash. In other cases, the rewards mean VIP treatment. In Florida, Miami’s Jackson Health System threw vaccine parties for social media influencers who agreed to write positive posts or produce videos about getting the Pfizer vaccine. While there was “no payment made to any influencer,” the Internet stars and their “plus ones” moved to the head of the vaccine appointment line. “Each influencer will be allowed to bring one spouse, partner, or relative who meets Florida’s eligibility requirement” to the party, health officials informed a select group of social media stars.

Joe Smyser, the head of a nonprofit called “Public Good Projects,” told Politico his outfit pays “microinfluencers” to post about getting the COVID vaccine and compensates them “anywhere between tens to hundreds of dollars.” The Oklahoma City-County Health Department has paid 35 young social media stars undisclosed sums to post government-approved COVID vaccine content and convince their peers that they need the shots to return to “normal” life.

This is how "news" is made and "public opinion" is shaped.

Post Office running surveillance on social media posts

According to Yahoo News, the Post Office is running a program to monitor conservative social media postings, possibly using donor databases seized from We Build The Wall to know who to watch. The post office appears to have no authority to do this, nor is it remotely within the purpose of their agency. Even if it was, it appears to violate the 1st and 4th amendments, as they admit to monitoring for information about protests.

Remember when the Post Office was begging for money recently? Was this what they wanted to fund?

House Dems vote to make DC a state

Gateway PunditOn Thursday the US House voted to make the District of Columbia a state.
Today the Biden Administration announced they supported the bill.

Doing this legally would require a constitutional amendment, which won't pass. However, if the Dems can pass this through the House and Senate, and elect Senators from DC in 2022, or perhaps even earlier via special elections, they can use the new majority to pack the Supreme Court with a simple majority in the Senate.

The Democrats are trying to parley a very slim majority into absolute power.

Allegations of DOJ/intel dirty tricks

Just The NewsIn an extraordinary claim of misconduct, a prominent political bundler convicted of fund-raising and lobbying offenses alleged Monday that a U.S. government agency deleted evidence from his computer and left him to take the blame for obstruction.

Lawyers for Imaad Zuberi argued the government's alleged duplicity in the deletion may only be "the proverbial tip of the iceberg" and that federal prosecutors have shown "a pattern animus" by withholding exculpatory evidence showing they were seeking a 12-year prison sentence against Zuberi while allowing a foreign fund-raiser in a similar case to escape punishment with a deferred prosecution agreement.

I find these allegations particularly interesting. Here's my theory: this guy was known to law enforcement and intelligence. He was their agent in channeling donations to their preferred candidates, like Hillary and Obama (both of which he fundraised for). When Trump won, the intel agencies tasked him with trying to "dirty up" Trump by donating to Trump's inauguration and trying to get favors in return. This would allow the FBI to immediately put him under investigation and wiretap him, trying to parley the resulting evidence into getting someone in the Trump administration for bribery or the like. When that effort failed, the only thing they could do was go after their own agent to make it look like a real investigation instead of an attempted political sting.

And the emails that were deleted likely contained the official DOJ/intel instructions for this guy to do exactly what he did.

Speculation? Sure. But it makes sense, and we already know the intel agencies, DOJ, and FBI are willing and able to engage in dirty tricks.
