Hospital closures already starting because of vaccine mandate

Just The NewsThe CEO of a hospital in Texas is cautioning that his facility is facing possible closure following President Biden's announcement last week that healthcare workers will be required to receive the Covid-19 vaccination.

If the mandate takes effect, the Brownfield Regional Medical Center will likely lose 20-25% of its staff, according to CEO Jerry Jasper. Without those employees, the hospital will likely shut down.

Already in upstate New York, an official for one hospital said the facility is going to have to close down its maternity unit for the time being because so many employees resigned over former Governor Andrew Cuomo's vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. The mandate was temporarily halted on Tuesday by a federal judge in New York.

Democrats really do have trouble predicting the second and third order consequences of their stupid policy ideas. Mandate vaccines for everyone, especially people working in health care, to keep the hospitals operating rather than overflowing from COVID? Great! But now it's uh-oh they don't want the vaccines so much they their jobs in healthcare, and the hospitals have to shut down.

New "compromise" election bill is still a fraud-enabling takeover of elections

ABC NewsSenate Democrats on Tuesday introduced their latest version of a sweeping election reform bill to counter the record-number of voting restrictions that have passed in GOP-led states, which they say make it harder for minorities and low-income Americans to cast a ballot.

The modified bill, now known as The Freedom to Vote Act, is a compromise after the previous For The People Act failed to pass in the Senate last June.

Significantly, the new bill was crafted by a group that included moderate Sen Joe Manchin, a key swing vote, after he opposed an earlier version of the legislation charging that it was too broad and lacked bipartisan support.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., promised a vote on the bill next week, most likely a procedural vote to break an expected GOP filibuster.

Schumer calls it a compromise, Manchin is involved, and McConnell is talking tough but doesn't have the votes to block it if Manchin is onboard and the filibuster is not in play. The legislation would require mail-in voting upon request (which, by itself, will enable massive fraud). This is simply a very slightly watered down takeover attempt and needs to be blocked. But can we block it and preserve honest elections run by the state legislatures?

The Dems are terrified that their fraud is going to be exposed, and this is their solution.

It must not pass.

AZ Audit report presented today 1pm EST

Just The NewsTen months after the bitterly contested 2020 election, the Arizona Senate's long-anticipated forensic audit of ballots in the state's largest county will be released Friday during a live-streaming event certain to rekindle the passionate debate in America over voting integrity.

Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, will be briefed at 1 p.m. EDT in public on the findings from Cyber Ninjas and CyFIR, two contractors hired by the Senate to inspect voting machines and review the 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County, home to the city of Phoenix.

Ken Bennett discusses what to expect. Trump has two statements (first one). The media has a draft report and is saying it confirms a Biden win.

AZ election canvass report is out

UncoverDCThe Maricopa County canvassing results are now published. Biden allegedly won by 10,457 votes in Arizona, yet, the report shows 173,104 “lost votes” and “96,389” ghost votes. Liz Harris, who spearheaded the canvass, appeared on Bannon’s War Room on Wednesday with Seth Keshel weighing in with his own data and his interpretation of the canvass data.

As reported by UncoverDC, Harris trained hundreds of volunteers to go door-to-door to canvass “vacant lots, hotels, county buildings, apartment complexes with no corresponding apartment number, abandoned properties, non-existent addresses, homes for elderly, churches, sports arenas, homeless shelters, native American reservations.” The independently-run grassroots canvass is a crucial piece in the puzzle for election integrity because it seeks to reconcile the voter database with the voter rolls. A simple count of votes does not necessarily reflect the will of the voters.

This is an effect distinct from the forensic audit report we are still waiting on. However, the results are still quite troubling, with some true horror stories of votes that went missing and dozens of votes from vacant lots or other invalid addresses. The only major flaw is that their headline numbers are based on extrapolation from a much smaller sample. I'll let statisticians argue over whether the extrapolation is sound or not. The results strongly suggest massive fraud was in play, more than enough by an order of magnitude to swing the election results.

Wisconsin election integrity update

UncoverDCWisconsin awaits the resolution of multiple ongoing election integrity efforts. An election processes audit by its Legislative Audit Bureau that Republicans had ordered in February, an investigation initiated by Republican Speaker of the State Assembly Robin Vos, and a battle over attempts to subpoena election materials for a full forensic audit are ongoing. The state government has enacted legislation for election reform, and the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) has removed ~200,000 inactive voters from the rolls.

Republican Representative Timothy Ramthun describes the differences between the three audit efforts on episode 28 of his Ramthun Report. He warns that “there are major efforts to cloud the truth” of the various audits, described in his video as “a genuine effort to mislead and confuse everyone.” He calls State Representative Janel Brandtjen’s subpoena effort “the one true AZ style transparent full cyber and forensic audit that people are demanding.”

Just a chance to catch up on what is happening in Wisconsin.

Fulton County to name Abrams' linked lobbyist to election board

Just The NewsGeorgia's largest county is prepared to name a paid lobbyist for liberal voting rights activist Stacey Abrams' group to be the next chairwoman of its election board, drawing immediate condemnation from the state's top election official.

Fulton County's Board of Commissioners confirmed Tuesday it is considering hiring Cathy Woolard, a former Atlanta city council president and mayoral candidate, as the next county election's board chairwoman. A vote is expected as early as Wednesday, according to the commission's meeting docket.

This is basically an open admission that the county wants maximum vote fraud. Abrams was already heavily involved behind the scenes in counting the votes in 2020, and now they want to put her in charge.

Not that Raffensperger's hands are clean either. He's in the "try to redeem my reputation with the base" phase.

Israeli health minister admits vaccine passports are not medically necessary

Zerohedge“Imposing “green pass” rules on certain venues is needed only to pressure members of the public to get vaccinated, and not for medical reasons, Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Sunday, ahead of the weekly Cabinet meeting,” reports Jewish News Syndicate.

I think we need a constitutional amendment forbidding the enforcement of any policy that is solely intended to pressure citizens into taking some other, supposedly voluntary, action.

Fauci's modified viruses more dangerous

Daily SignalAmerican and Chinese researchers funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s federal agency created viruses in a Wuhan lab that exhibited over 10,000 times higher viral load in humanized mice than the natural viruses they were based on, another expert in infectious diseases says, citing newly released documents.

The U.S. nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance notified Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in two reports that between June 2017 and May 2018 it had created three lab-generated chimeric SARS-related coronaviruses in China that exhibited “significantly higher” viral loads, documents first reported by The Intercept show. But Fauci’s agency continued to fund the project with taxpayer dollars without flagging it for review by an independent committee created in late 2017 to oversee so-called gain-of-function research.

Fauci's support for this dangerous research should disqualify him from any position of trust ever again. Hell, it probably should put him in jail, considering he was funding Chinese bioweapon research.

Censorship and the cancel campaigns

Daily SignalWhen White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that people who spread “misinformation” “shouldn’t be banned from one platform and not others,” she revealed the left’s chilling plan for censoring content that goes against the left’s narrative.

It is becoming increasingly clear that political leaders on the left and Big Tech are joining arms to not just deplatform dissident voices from social media, but to bar them from the digital space entirely, including from having the ability to make and receive payments online.

In the latest example, Chase Bank reportedly planned to close the credit card account of former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Sept. 18, stating that “continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company.” While as of Aug. 31, a Chase spokesperson said that they had “made an error and apologized for any inconvenience caused,” the initial gesture can’t be ignored.

The claim that government wasn't involved in these cancel campaigns has been shattered. The Obama administration pioneered the efforts with Operation Chokepoint, which basically tried to get banks and the financial industry to "voluntarily" (under threat by their regulatory agencies) deny service to the gun industry. Now that's been expanded to deny access to social media and any speech or financial platform for, basically, everyone the left doesn't liked on whatever thinly veiled excuse they can come up with. If you're a CEO or a high level corporate officer, better not speak out or you will be hounded out of your job, or have your bank cancel your accounts, or whatever else they can come up with. And in many cases, there's a hidden hand of government applying pressure behind the scenes.

That should violate the 1st Amendment, but if it's kept secret, how would you ever know?

But the government actors are becoming more and more open about their censorship.

It's absolutely clear that we are on the road to a totalitarian society, and we're nearing the destination.

PA issues dubious election subpoenas

Just The NewsThe Pennsylvania Senate’s top ranking Republican said Friday the commission spearheading an election investigation should issue subpoenas as soon as possible.

Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, R-Bellefonte, told the Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee to convene Monday for a vote on the matter. The instruction comes after the Department of State stood up the panel’s invitation to testify at the probe’s inaugural hearing on Thursday.

It turns out they voted to issue the subpoenas, but they may not even be necessary, and didn't include ballots. So what is the point, if not to pretend to audit the election to shut people up about it?

There is a new effort at legislative election reform in PA including voter ID.

Texas passes law protecting free speech on social media

UPISept. 10 (UPI) -- Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law a bill that prohibits large social media companies from banning users over their political opinions, attracting the criticism of free speech activists.

House Bill 20 targets social media companies with more than 50 million monthly users, such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and aims to prevent them from banning users over their politics. It also requires the companies to disclose their content management and moderation policies and implement a complaint and appeals process for content they remove.

"Freedom of speech is under attack in Texas," Abbott said Thursday in a recorded statement. "There is a dangerous movement by some social media companies to silence conservative ideals and values. This is wrong and we will not allow it in Texas."

Somehow, that first paragraph was written without irony. "Free-Speech activists" oppose a law that prevents banning users based on their political opinions? The rest of the article is, if anything, worse -- conflating political opinions with obscenity and all the usual boogeymen.

Judge awards $200K in legal costs against Sidney Powell

Daily MailMichigan officials are demanding more than $200,000 in legal fees from pro-Trump lawyers led by Sidney Powell who unsuccessfully tried to overturn the 2020 election result with a lawsuit dismissed as full of conspiracies, it emerged on Thursday.

Last month, U.S. District Judge Linda Parker ruled that state and local election officials could claim reimbursement of their legal fees.

Sometimes legal fees get awarded, usually when the case that was brought is considered to be not only a losing case but such a bad case that it must have been brought in bad faith. The amount seems large, but likely isn't exceptional. The real question is whether the case was actually meritless, or if the judge -- appointed by Obama -- is merely exercising poor judgement about a politically charged situation.

Biden's vaccine mandate

It appears Biden has chosen to declare war on the 80 million Americans who have so far refused to take the COVID vaccine. He has done this by issuing an unconstitutional and unethical mandate requiring almost every worker in the United States to take the vaccine or be fired. This will undoubtedly be followed by continuing requirements to take booster shots for new variants on a regular basis, although whether those boosters will be effective against new variants is open to doubt and will likely remain untested.

Oh, and OSHA won't track negative health outcomes from these vaccines that are mandated by employers so there is no corporate liability. And if the vaccines don't work, your doctor isn't allowed to tell you on pain of losing his license to practice medicine. Things that work don't need lies.

Wisconsin Special Counsel demands evidence retention

Just The NewsSpecial Counsel and former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Mike Gableman is attempting to prevent the potential destruction of evidence pertaining to the 2020 presidential election in the state.

Gableman reminded the Wisconsin Election Commission via letter of its duty to prevent the tampering and destruction of evidence.

"I hereby request that you and your office preserve any and all records and evidence [...] including but not limited to information retained on any and all voting machine," including "metadata, router information, and/or access logs," he wrote.

The Wisconsin attorney took it upon himself to send the letter as concerns mount that updates to election machines could corrupt or destroy critical evidence and information relating to the ways in which the 2020 election was conducted in the state. Gableman notes that such tampering would interfere with the Office of Special Counsel's investigation.

This may well be too late, but it gives me hope we may get an actual audit in Wisconsin.

Australia enforcing alcohol consumption limits AT HOME in lockdown

Gateway PunditAustralians in lockdown in New South Wales are having their alcohol deliveries monitored by the government’s NSW Health Agency, because science.

“Residents in apartment blocks locked-down by NSW Health are having their alcohol deliveries policed as part of a policy to limit the number of drinks being consumed each day,” NCA News Wire reported.

Government goons are rummaging through private mail deliveries, confiscating alcohol and telling Aussies they can only receive a ration of “six beers or pre-mixed drinks or one bottle of wine.”

This is insane.

Daily WireAn influx of refugees is straining Northern Virginia to the point that native-born Americans are being turned away from a local hospital.

September 18th "rally" a setup?

Deep CaptureI have become aware of an impending rally in Washington, DC on September 18 in support of the prisoners languishing in Nancy’s Dungeon due to their activities on January 6. I question the wisdom of holding or participating in this rally...

One obvious reason to question the wisdom of this rally is that it could easily be a setup.

I agree with Bryne on this. I think it's a setup. I would avoid it. There's no reason to protest in DC about anything; no one there cares what you think. While I don't have any real evidence to say it's a deliberate setup and for all I know the organizers are honest... it just feels off.

Don't give the narrative engineers another Jan 6th event they can false-flag.

Biden withdraws anti-gun BATFE nominee

Just The NewsThe White House will withdraw its nomination of David Chipman to head up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

The nominee, a former special agent at ATF and current gun control lobbyist, was scrutinized immediately upon his nomination for his publicly anti-firearm positions.

I suspect that the anti-gun crusaders just learned a painful lesson about how important the NRA is to gun rights. That is, not very, anymore. Our political power comes from our millions of motivated individuals, and the NRA ultimately does little more than point out problems. And frankly not very much of that, under Wayne lately.

Millions of gun owners have learned that large organizations and their leadership are susceptible to corruption. We've also learned to compensate for the failure by finding other sources of the information we need to make a difference.

Don't get me wrong, the NRA is an important organization, and it's currently threatened status is a shrewd political move by opponents. But the organization has been troubled for some time. We need to hope for the best -- a renewed, reinvigorated NRA -- while planning for the worst.

Democrats trying to make Medicare fail faster

Just The News"For the first time, we believe that Medicare should cover the cost of dental, hearing, and glasses," she said. "These are essentials, and we believe that seniors deserve to have Medicare cover these basic costs."

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders argued that coverage of these services under Medicare is "overwhelmingly popular" with the public.

The Medicare trust fund, formally titled the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, is currently projected to become insolvent by 2026.

In addition to expanding Medicare benefits, Democrats have also proposed universal pre-K, tuition-free community college, financial support for childcare and more new programs to expand the social safety net in the U.S. as part of the reconciliation package.

The Cloward-Piven strategy lives.

Dem/Clinton lawyer indicted by Durham for lying to FBI

MSNA federal grand jury on Thursday indicted attorney Michael Sussman on a charge of lying to the FBI during the 2016 campaign, marking the second prosecution brought by John Durham, the special counsel tapped by former President Trump to investigate the FBI's probe into Russian interference.

For some background on what this might mean. I will add that this is, not surprisingly, an effective whitewash for the FBI itself. One agent gets charged for falsifying documents to the court (and only because he was stupid enough to alter them and get caught), everyone else in government gets off scott free while pointing the finger at the people outside of government who "misled" them.

Durham should get his claws into whoever he can, but we all know the FBI themselves are the people who abused their power and tampered with an election, then conducted a running series of coup attempts on the elected president. They should not get away with it, but it seems like they are going to.

UPDATE: More optimistic analysis here.

Durham to seek indictment of Clinton lawyer?

Just The NewsSpecial counsel John Durham reportedly is seeking a grand jury indictment against Michael Sussmann, a cybersecurity lawyer at a Democratic-allied law firm that represented Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign.

According to the New York Times, the charge is said to be related to an alleged false statement to the FBI about a client's identity when Sussmann pushed now-debunked claims about secret communications between Russia’s Alfa Bank and the Trump Organization in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Durham “has told the Justice Department that he will ask a grand jury to indict a prominent cybersecurity lawyer on a charge of making a false statement to the FBI,” the New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing “people familiar with the matter.”

We'll see what DOJ says about this request. Some commentators suggest an indictment of Sussmann would be a big deal that could threaten some very important figures in politics.

My take is less optimistic. While it would be nice if Durham has managed to collect enough evidence to indict a key figure (and thus to pressure him to testify against other key figures, potentially including the clients who hired him to present this hoax to the FBI), Durham still has to ask permission from Biden's DOJ to actually do anything. And both Barr and Durham have repeatedly disappointed the hopes for justice raised by media leaks.

So my policy remains no excitement until an indictment.

UPDATE: Well, I'll be damned... and maybe a little excited.

Sen Warren calls for Amazon to censor books

Red StateIf you were to make a proposal that a politician should go about calling to take down published works, the initial reaction from many would be to recoil and issue a rebuke. The concept of the government seeking to silence select individuals runs contrary to our core beliefs. Yet we have a politician currently calling to take that very action, and the response is so vacant that you have to wonder how far we as a nation have drifted.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has undertaken a cause against Amazon that should deliver a chill instantly, whether you have a Prime membership or not. In the tradition of her party always looking to leverage a crisis, Warren is targeting the monolithic retailer to take action and restrict access to products, in the name of pandemic protections. This does have a veil of propriety in that she mentions concerns with potential counterfeit medical supplies, but then she resorts to overreach as she also wants to restrict published works under the same guise of safety.

It's not about COVID. It's about control.

Australia goes to hell

Conservative TreehousePremier Gladys Berejiklian has announced that once the state achieves 70% double-vaccinated status, citizens within the region will be given some freedom from the lock-down situation. The details of the freedom will be announced later; however, only vaccinated people will be permitted to participate.

The announcement from NSW followed their release of the latest COVID stats showing eight people had died of “covid-related health issues” in the past 24 hours. Two men in their nineties, two people in their eighties and three people in their seventies, died in hospital. According to the Health Minister, all of them had “pre-existing medical issues and conditions.”

Following the nationwide standard, every citizen will be required to download their proof of vaccine into their personal “QR Code” on their phone. This digital identification will be scanned at the entrances of all businesses, offices, workplaces, and venues that require entry to participate in society. This process is called “check in”, and will be monitored by the national and state governing authority who will enforce protocols for tracking each individual citizen.

What's going down in Australia is really, really scary.
