Rumors abound. Like all the other illegal and corrupt stuff the government has done, there is no doubt that the government including Clinton/Obama and their gunslinger Brennan were in it up to their necks. Is the proof in the hands of Trump?

Georgia, yes Georgia. The 2020 presidential election in Georgia was stolen, and then the senate seats were stolen giving the solid marxist party* control of the senate.
How does this work when the same politicians that are supposed to guarantee election integrity now work for Dominion?
Lots of bad places, but remember Georgia is run by republicans…
*the dems of course. The R’s are marxist but not solidly.
Madison Cawthorn, former congressman from NC that made news with his allegations that congress members were compromised because they are basically blackmailed whores. Here he details HOW IT’S DONE.
I’m just shocked.

I think that yes, we are going to need a kill switch and it ain’t going to be the one the deep state marxist bureaucrats are thinking of.
Sometimes there is only one solution. Sometimes the solution is forced upon us.

Clogged to overflowing with the very worst sort of bipedal turds.
As you may recall, on January 6th 2021, I was on air with Tucker as the alleged “storming of the Capitol” was drawing to a close. It was not yet over, but the media had already agreed the Official Narrative – that it was a shameful violation of the most hallowed precincts of “the Citadel of Democracy”. I got sick of that shtick almost instantly:
Mark Steyn rips media’s ‘citadel of democracy’ framing of Capitol: ‘It’s a citadel of crap’
Ah, but I was wrong. It turns out it’s a Citadel of Shags. Headline from The Daily Caller:
EXCLUSIVE: Senate Staffer Caught Filming Gay Sex Tape In Senate Hearing Room
Er, don’t hit the link unless you enjoy that sort of thing. If you think “Filming Gay Sex Tape” is just the usual teasing click-bait for a bit of lame-o soft-focus light-petting, not at all. It’s definitely Not Safe For Work, although evidently it’s safe for government work, as the Senate staffer in question had no qualms about uploading it to the Internet. The setting is the table of the Hearing Room of the Senate Judiciary Committee. That would be the room where Brett Kavanaugh was grilled, and FBI straight-shooter James Comey testified at length and with an impressively straight face about the “Russia investigation”. I have also testified at the US Senate, but can’t remember if it was that room or another. Still, if I’m ever asked back, I’ll remember to bring a couple of moist towelettes to wipe down the furniture.
So, if I understand the social norms of the People’s House, it’s completely unacceptable (and, indeed, a crime) to wander its precincts goofily with a MAGA hat and an American flag; but, if you stop for ten minutes to have anal sex before the Supreme Court nominee hearing re-convenes, that’s perfectly fine – so fine it might be worth entering it in mitigation and getting a couple of years knocked off your sentence. You will get a serious prison term if you put your feet on Nancy Pelosi’s desk, but not if you climb on, get down on hands and knees, and um…
Useful to know.
The staffer in question, an aide to Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin, one Aidan Maese-Czeropski, responded indignantly on LinkedIn:
This has been a difficult time for me, as I have been attacked for who I love…
In fairness, he was mostly attacked not “for who I love” but for where he loves him. Nevertheless, I assumed that this defence would prove effective – and that no Washington bigshot would dare to pink-slip a gay guy for getting caught being gay. Besides, in the broader sense, in a decadent pseudo-republic with no equality before the law, it seems entirely natural that some citizens rot in gaol merely for passing half-an-hour ambling aimlessly around the People’s House—and other, more favoured citizens can with impunity roger like billy-ho on the very People’s Table that determines the composition of the highest court in the land. The symbolism is too perfect.
Ain’t it, though. Ain’t it just. It’s Steyn, so you know what you must do, Glasshoppa.
Buck Throckmorton makes a rock-solid case for an idea whose time has definitely come.
We have reached a point where several of the most powerful leadership positions in Congress have been held in recent years by persons who are clearly no longer mentally fit to govern, yet they are completely untouchable at the polls. Below them in seniority are hundreds more entrenched Representatives and Senators who are unextractable.
There are a great many conservative pundits and thinkers whom I respect that argue against term limits. They make the case that, “We already have term limits, they’re called elections.”
Respectfully, they’re wrong.
It may occasionally be possible to replace an incumbent with someone from another party at the ballot box, but the cards are so stacked against primary challenges to an incumbent that pulling off a win is akin to a 16-seed winning a basketball game in March Madness. It can happen – rarely – but it’s almost impossible.
He goes on from there to knock down, one by one, the specific arguments against, including but by no means limited to these:
All 435 members of the House are not equal in power. Again, Congress has rigged it rules such that long-tenured members have much greater power and authority due to seniority. Replacing my 7-term Congressman, who has several plum committee assignments, with a rookie would mean that voters in my district are surrendering representation and influence. Again, voters are not affirming the status quo by continually returning their Representatives to Congress, they are responding as they must by how the rules are currently rigged. Term limits would flush out those with seniority and force the change that 1 district out of 435 cannot change.
Another argument from the anti-term limits crowd is that, “Power will switch to the permanent bureaucracy.” Lawmaking via regulatory power has already been overwhelmingly outsourced to the bureaucracy. Fresh blood in Congress would provide an opportunity to bring in people who might actually challenge the power of the permanent bureaucracy, rather than defend and serve it as the uniparty does now.
The same establishment Republicans who mock us for promoting term limits while we continue to re-elect our own incumbent congressman, were blind with rage at us when we actually did throw an entrenched incumbent out during a primary. Suffice it to say, the establishment is using its resources to ensure there will be no more Cantors. Since Cantor’s loss, any candidate challenging an incumbent is quickly smeared as a gadfly and an extremist by those with power and resources. This successfully deters most respectable people from engaging in long-shot primary races against incumbents.
The simplistic belief that access to the ballot renders term limits unnecessary is as idealistically utopian as believing in the benevolent communitarianism of communism, or in the benign anarchy of libertarianism. People who have attained power will seek to retain power, and those in power have weighted the playing field so heavily in favor of incumbency that meaningful turnover cannot happen at the ballot box.
No one should have access to such power indefinitely. We need term limits to force a turnover of those holding power in Congress.
‘Fraid so, yeah. Would that it were not so—one truly hates to suggest more legislation as a solution to any problem at all, if one is even marginally a Constitutional conservative—but sadly, it is. Having strayed so very far from our origins as a Constitutionally-correct representative republic, I guess resorting to last-ditch, principle-traducing measures such as term limits are inevitable.
Well, ain’t that a relief.
Not a word, of course, detailing what these serial “health scares” might have actually, y’know, involved. Beyond Yertle McTurtle locking up several times on-camera like a deer caught in headlights, that is. Everything’s cool, we good, we good.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he is “completely recovered” after a series of health episodes earlier this year that raised questions about whether the 81-year-old senator could continue serving.
“I’m in good shape, completely recovered, and back on the job,” McConnell said in an interview that aired Sunday with CBS News’s Face The Nation.
When asked by host Margaret Brennan if he believes he is fit to continue serving “at a time when we are talking about incredible dysfunction in Washington, McConnell fired back, “I think we ought to be talking about what we were talking about earlier, rather than my health.”
Oh, by all means, Yertle. Important, crucially vitally crucial things like the absolute imperative shared by every single last American to keep hurling pallet-loads of US hush-money at a certain pint-sized dictator to continue his becoming silence concerning the Biden Crime Familia‘s frequent use of his “nation” as an ATM-slash-money laundry.
Not perfect, but anytime one goes on Fox (fake) news and tells the truth in the face of the commie news narrative it’s a good day.
Update: I’m not the only one that noticed.
“I do not know if Matt Gaetz is the worthy Ty Cobb of Republican politics or not, but I do know he is currently one of the only people that is not pretending. That elevates him in my view.”
Update 2: Thinking further, I think I have my preferred VP for Donald Trump. My own consideration is two fold – 1) someone that can step in should Trump kick the bucket, and 2) someone to carry on after the next term is complete.
Last Friday’s Eyrie post on the pseudo-food Our Betters are demanding we adopt (WE adopt, mind you, not them—never them) closed with this:
The moral of the story: Trust not in governments or their “experts,” for they are dishonest and motivated primarily by financial considerations. Eat what you like, with moderation, variety, and common sense always foremost in mind—ie, don’t make a pig of yourself. As a rule, your Grandma was a lot more knowledgeable and intelligent about such matters than FederalGovCo will ever be, with the added benefit of wishing only the best for you, always.
Ahh, you stammer, but…but…but Our Masters want only the best for their subjects, too! They love us and care about us and take care of us too, just like Grandma did, you scree. They’re human beings just like you and I are!, you squeal.
But is all that really true? Have a look and decide for yourself.

Rest assured that there will be NO vat-grown “meats,” NO reconstituted insects, NO artificial, lab-created, or bargain-store anything at all adorning the platters in the above photo—each of which probably cost more than your car did when it was new—when dinner is served. And it’s a lead-pipe cinch that if some lowly Serf Class soul like you or I wandered into that room by mistake, armed security personnel would have you in a headlock with your arm bent up between your shoulder blades and speed-marching towards the exit quicker than you could gasp “Bob’s your uncle!” in stupified agony.
In a short story titled The Rich Boy, Scott Fitzgerald said it best:
Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves. Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different.
And not in a good or admirable way, either. In fact, as the last image broadly suggests, they are bipedal pigs, bloated with self-importance and unfounded conceit; blinded by their obsessive neuroses; overawed by their own putative lordliness, good taste, and superior intelligence. The world will be incalculably improved on the frabjous day when every last individual in the above picture is dangling limply by his/her/its neck from a nearby tree or lamppost.
And in Amerika v2.0, it’s a dish best not swallowed at all.
More than two and a half years after the gravest threat to democracy of our lifetime — and maybe of all time — Jan. 6 agitator Ray Epps has finally been charged. See? Justice is being served.
According to court documents, Epps was charged with a sole misdemeanor count of “Disorderly or Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds” via an “information,” as opposed to an indictment, which NBC news says suggests “he plans to enter a plea deal.”
In other words, we’ll finally be able to rest — safe and sound and smug — knowing all the Tucker Carlson-fueled conspiracies about Epps being an FBI source or informant have been put to bed. Case closed. He was a wee bit disorderly. Let it go.
So why are rabid right-wingers foaming at the mouth and unable to accept the DOJ charges and media write-ups at face value? These are trusted institutions with an unblemished track record of ethics, honesty, and equal justice under the law. Turn off the Fox News and Truth Social already, and get your facts straight.
For instance, why are ultra-MAGA Republicans still asking about the multiple clips of Epps on both Jan. 5 and 6, 2021, rallying protesters to make their way from Trump’s speech not only up toward Capitol Hill but “into the Capitol”? Those conspiracists just can’t get over the fact that the demonstrators within earshot booed his suggestion and pegged him as a “Fed! Fed! Fed!” But what would they know? They’re insurrectionists.
And why are election deniers still bringing up that text Epps sent his nephew after the riot? “I was in front with a few others. I also orchestrated it.” He walked that back a while ago, remember? He was just “boasting to [his] nephew.” Never mind what he was boasting about.
On that note, Republicans can give it a rest already with the Proud Boys comparisons. So some guy who wasn’t even in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6, 2021, will serve a 22-year prison sentence for seditious conspiracy and “terrorism” while ringleading Epps gets a disorderly conduct misdemeanor no-no and probably a plea deal — what’s your point?!
How many times do the media need to tell you people Ray Epps isn’t a fed before you get it through your thick skulls? It’s a CONSPIRACY. Nothing to see here.
Yep, just another heaping, steaming platter of pure FederalGovCo/Praetorian Media bullshit, as fetid and rank-tasting as it always is. Don’t swallow it, not one morsel of it.
Ahh, but Ray “Fedboi” Epps was but a small part of the larger Pelosi/FBI op that day.
FBI lost count of how many paid informants were at Capitol on Jan. 6, and later performed audit to figure out exact number: ex-official
The FBI had so many paid informants at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, that it lost track of the number and had to perform a later audit to determine exactly how many “Confidential Human Sources” run by different FBI field offices were present that day, a former assistant director of the bureau has told lawmakers.
At least one informant was communicating with his FBI handler as he entered the Capitol, according to Steven D’Antuono, formerly in charge of the bureau’s Washington field office.
D’Antuono has testified behind closed doors to the House Judiciary Committee that his office was aware before the riot that some of their informants would attend a “Stop the Steal” rally thrown by former President Donald Trump, but he only learned after the fact that informants run by other field offices also were present, along with others who had participated of their own accord.
One paid informant from the Kansas City field office was at the Capitol as the crowd surged inside and allegedly was in communication with his FBI handler “while they were in the crowd, I think, saying that they were going in,” according to the former bureau brass.
Not one of whom will ever get anything worse in the way of punishment than the pre-arranged slap on the wrist received by “Fedboi” Epps, of course. The bottom line remains the same:
44,000 hours of surveillance tape showing at worst stupid fools – unarmed and peaceful if not a little bit rowdy stupid fools – being led in and escorted slowly around by Capitol PD themselves after the latter opened the doors for them, and then exiting in a generally orderly fashion. The only fatalities were Ashli Babbitt, shot execution style by now-promoted and feted Capitol cop Michael Byrd, and Roseanne Boyland, brutally beaten to death by some of the “paid informants” that D’Antuono lost track off.
Not exactly storming the Bastille, is it? Meh, the Bastille stormed us.
It did at that—ran roughshod all the hell over what little was left of America That Was, all the while shouting at Real Americans the elites’ eternal cry: Let ‘em eat cake! The historically-correct response can only be: Off with their heads!
In Monday’s Eyrie post, I ran down the easiest imaginable solution to correcting the recurring issues with our national “elections.” To repeat:
Indeed they do, but the REAL cure is simpler even than that: ditch ALL electronic voting machines and return to paper ballots, hand counted in full, unobstructed view of official representatives from all and every political party with candidates running for office. Contra Simplicius’ first ‘graph above*, if that means We Duh Peepul must wait for the results a little longer than we’ve become accustomed to because hand-counting all those hard-copy ballots takes a little more time, well, so be it then.
The essential point to be made here, I think, is that the count does not stop until all the (legitimate) votes are tallied. No self-evidently shady “pauses” after the polling places have closed because the toilet down the hall has sprung a minor leak, followed by a wee-hours stealth-resumption while no one is looking. You cast your vote on Election Day, on paper, dip your thumb into a jug of indelible purple ink ø Iraq, and then the votes are counted publicly, openly, without the kind of manipulation and mucking about we bore supine witness to in 2020. Period fucking dot, end of fucking story, problem fucking solved.
In case you were thinking there was even a snowball’s chance of such an idea ever being implemented in Amerika v2.0: Don’t. Just. Don’t. Because like so many other good and desirable things, it never will be. Instead, we’re going to move as fast and as far as possible in the exact opposite direction.
Key battleground state launches ‘automatic voter registration’ ahead of 2024
Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro announced Tuesday that he will implement “automatic voter registration” ahead of the 2024 election.
The governor rolled out his plan on National Voter Registration Day to “streamline” the voter registration process, which he argues will “save taxpayers time and money,” according to an announcement video. Shapiro’s plan will automatically enroll Pennsylvanians in the voting system, unless the individual opts out, when receiving an identification card or driver’s license at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
“From now on, when you get or renew your driver’s license or an ID card at the DMV, you’ll be registered to vote unless you choose not to,” Shapiro said in the video. “I made a commitment when I was campaigning for this office that we would bring automatic voter registration in Pennsylvania and break down the barriers for legal, eligible voters. This is a key step to make our elections more secure, adding important levels of verification to the voter registration process.”
It will do no such thing, Goobernor, and you know damned well it won’t; if it would, you’d fight to your very last breath against doing it. Making elections more secure and “adding important levels of verification” is the absolute last thing you and your fellow PTB scumfucks want to see happen. As for “breaking down the barriers for legal, eligible voters,” there are NO such barriers anymore, and you damned well know that too.
No, what this D卐M☭CRAT rectal polyp actually wants to do is break down the last few remaining barriers (if any) for illegal, ineligible voters. Once that’s done, it’ll be celebratory “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!” banners—in “Transgender’ rainbow colors, natch—flying from the State House and D卐M☭CRAT Party HQ, with smiles, handshakes, backslaps, and flutes of champagne all around.
Ron Hart has way too much fun making sport of our enfeebled gerontocracy.
Even though Joe Biden could throw himself a successful surprise party, he is not the only one aging out in Washington. Senators Mitch McConnell and Dianne Feinstein are on their last legs. They have too much power for their parties to let them step down. Along with Biden, they have become Weekend at Bernie’s politicians.
Propped up by their lobbyists, staff and benefactors to perpetuate their power for the benefit of those who bought and paid for them, our gerontocracy shuffles on.
Maybe I am too hard on lobbyists. We need them. Who else would pay $550,000 for Hunter Biden’s artwork? “Three Dogs Playing Poker while Smoking Crack” art is in the eye of the beholder.
It probably does not matter how mentally impaired those in Congress are (Senator John Fetterman of PA comes to mind). With votes dictated by their party leaders, D.C. is shirts and skins; everyone votes as they are told along party lines. For years now, there has been no real debate or intellectual swaying of opinions.
Yet it seems none of these folks will let go. Power is too seductive and too compelling. When I worked in Washington while attending Georgetown, folks called Washington “Hollywood for Ugly People.” I did not get the joke until troll Alan Greenspan married NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell.
Henry Kissinger said it best: “Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.”
Let’s face it, few politicians have any other marketable skills. The difference between a prostitute and a politician? No one would walk up three flights of stairs at one in the morning to spend time with a politician.
Biden has the ability to hide his own Easter eggs, which then begs the question: who is running our government? Elected politicians or this permanent political class in Washington, D.C.? Clearly, with the actions of the DOJ, FBI, DOD and the medical/industrial complex, it is our unelected Deep State.
Forget term limits, what we need are hard and fast AGE limits for all Mordor on the Potomac ProPols. It’s no more than fair; if Americans in certain occupations other than politics can be required to retire at (usually) 70, then why shouldn’t politicians be subject to same? Say, forcible retirement at 65 and, for any who have been roosting in DC for a period of more than ten (10) years, a mandatory spend-more-time-at-home-with-your-constituents age of no more than 50.
As Insty quips: “Caligula sent a horse to the Senate. We just send part of the horse.” Myself, I think Caligula was really onto something there, although Glenn’s imputation would suit me just fine also. I mean, could it really be any worse than what we have now?
The real solution, of course, is to remove the excess of power, prestige, and bribe-money from the current seat of national government: disperse the federal bureaucracy entire out to various locations in the once-again-Sovereign States, then shrink FederalGovCo itself drastically, thereby removing the source of all temptation for the diseased, power-and-control-obsessed fucksticks who scramble to get themselves into position to succumb to it. But alas, that’s just another item on the long, long list of things that ain’t ever gonna happen, I’m afraid.
The republicans and democrats are all trying to tell you that the 14th amendment will disqualify Trump.
They know that is a lie and they know they will lose when, and if, it gets to the SCOTUS.
First, Trump has never been convicted in any court of law or by Congress at the conclusion of the second impeachment proceeding of participating in an insurrection or rebellion.
Second, as I have previously written in a Heritage Foundation report, it is highly doubtful that the disqualification clause is still valid.
Third, the argument that state officials can prevent Trump or any other member of Congress from holding office because of what happened on Jan. 6 is belied by the presidential qualifications clause of the Constitution (Art. I, Sec. 3, Cl. 3) which sets out three qualifications to be president. You have to be a “natural born citizen,” at least “thirty-five years” old, and “been fourteen years a resident” of the U.S.
It’s simply a hoax. Every one of these lawsuits are designed to suck money from the campaign, stop donations, and subvert the vote. Every last one of these people need to be jailed for life. They are communists and intent upon taking away every last bit of freedom and liberty left in this country.
Trump is in their way of getting to YOU.
“The people who want to control America and dictate to the rest of us, will break any law, lie about any topic, and manipulate the system any way they can and that includes a lot of the elite news media.
