These lockdowns gotta stop. [KT]

Good thing she doesn't live in Los Angeles.

Well, it has been pretty warm for the beginning of December in the Central Valley of California. But COVID-19 cases have still been rising some. There was reportedly no ICU capacity in some counties one day this week. My husband and I both got alerts on our phones. His was quite dramatic, with a loud alarm. The alert demanded that he acknowledge having read it. He did not want to acknowledge the alert. He re-started his phone. He got the alert again. Re-started the phone again. Got the alert again. Not sure how he finally got rid of it.

My alert was in Spanish. I could just "dismiss" it. Oddly, the "Dismiss" button was in English.

Earlier in the month, Gavin Newsom had gotten tough about stay-at-home orders tied to ICU capacity under 15%.

The reaction of the Fresno County Sheriff was typical of other law enforcement officials in the area:

Sheriff Margaret Mims was quick to respond after the announcement, saying "We will not be enforcing any stay-at-home orders."

She said her department doesn't have the resources to enforce the order.

"If I showed anybody a list of what assignments and what cases our deputy sheriffs were working, they would be pretty hard-pressed to decide which one should stop what they're doing to go enforce these COVID rules," said Sheriff Mims.

"But that decision could come with consequences from the state."

"If you're unwilling to enforce the rules, if you're unwilling to adopt the protocols to support the mitigation and the reduction of the spread of this disease, we're happy to redirect those dollars to counties that feel differently," said Newsom.

Fresno County Supervisor Nathan Magsig said the governor shouldn't play politics with dollars that are vital to the Valley's survival.

"The specific purpose of those dollars were to be used for personal protective equipment, for testing," said Magsig. "For the state to step forward and try to withhold money from regions that maybe have a disagreement with the governor on his approach I think is completely wrong."

Newsom added that they've withheld funds before.

So Newsom's priorities here seem to line up with those of the new Soros-backed DA in Los Angeles. No unnecessary walking in Los Angeles, per the Mayor. That's Gavin Newsom's kind of mayor.

But resisting arrest and criminal threats are O.K., per the DA. This helps the Mayor and Governor meet their goals, right?

What about other ways to reduce the risk?

On Tuesday, Ron Johnson chaired a hearing on alternative treatments for COVID-19. The AP seems a little biased.

One physician spoke about Ivermectin. Something a lot of people haven't heard about. His statement was dramatic. The AP's "fact check" was dumb. The reason he was in the hearing was because U.S. studies are "not the gold standard": peer-reviewed randomized controlled clinical trials. But there ARE a lot of data beyond the Australian in vitro data. Clinical data. Controlled trials, even. The fact check is misleading. He wants the NIH to review the data. He wants physicians to act like physicians.

Much of the AP "fact check" focused on the couple who swallowed fish tank cleaner instead of getting prescriptions for Hydroxychloroquine. We wouldn't want people taking their dogs' heartworm medication instead of getting prescriptions for Ivermectin.

Here's the statement before the senate:

Here's a video in which he discusses the data with an Italian physician. It's long. At about 35 minutes, he describes data demonstrating that in parts of Peru where the regional health ministries distributed Ivermectin to all residents, deaths from COVID fell despite continued COVID cases. In Lima, where Ivermectin was not distributed, deaths remained high. Similar results were found in other countries. I think this video is more compelling than the Senate statement, but it is long.

The group of which this physician is a part has a website where clinical data are constantly updated. They have also issued a protocol for prophylaxis and treatment of early COVID-19. It includes some vitamins and other agents to enhance the immune response, in addition to Ivermectin.

He often mentions Dr. Paul Marik. This is the Marik Protocol, which has been online for several months. It's a little different from the one put out by the entire group of which he is a part. It is also updated from time to time. Here's a statement Marik made in October advocating for large studies for Ivermectin. Why isn't it being widely researched and utilized?

Everybody seems to be waiting for someone else to do Randomized Controlled Trials, then to get them peer reviewed. If the agent works, how many people will die in the meantime? Should physicians and patients be given a choice?

Vitamin D

There's an interesting discussion of Vitamin D over at Chicago Boyz. In addition to D, it's probably a good idea to pay attention to some basic nutrients, including the B vitamins, C, A and K, and various minerals.

Vitamin C and sometimes D are being used in some hospitals as drugs rather than nutrients, but we're not talking about those kinds of levels for prophylaxis.

No club music like this at present:

Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution was sufficient for the Texas lawsuit to proceed and win (not to mention the 14th Amendment amendments Due Process and Equal Protection clauses) -- and also provides a constitutional basis for President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act --


The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against
invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

"Anyone over the age of 16 traveling to L.A. must complete an online form upon arrival to acknowledge they've read and understood a California travel advisory.
Failure to submit the form is punishable by a fine of up to $500."

This is insane. I'm going to go camp along HWY 1 and I'm supposed to know I'm going to be fined if I don't fill out some form?
If I go to visit family I'm not hunting for some L.A mandated form.
L.A. is certifiable at this point.

37 I noticed Newsom instituted stricter lockdowns in effect as long as ICUs were over 85% capacity. ICUs typically run at 90-95% capacity because if they don't, the hospital is seriously misallocating their resources.

So. No end to the lockdowns.

---------------------------------

The Demoncrats in the US are communists. Full stop. They are communists, and they are doing what communists have done since communism was invented. They are killing innocent people.

Preventing an inexpensive & safe medication from being distributed to sick people, and controlling access to information so that sick people don't even know there is a remedy available, is murder. People have died for lack of treatment, or being given the wrong treatment - ventilators. Remember when Fauxi and his lying minions said we needed ventilators and President Trump rushed to manufacture thousands of ventilators, only to find out ventilators kill people?

Preventing access to treatment is murder just as surely as marching us off to the killing fields is also murder.

How is Donna ampersand? Anna Puma I saw in the last thread going offline for a while. I did it and I've come back to limited news exposure, temporarily anyway.

Someone introduced me to Maximus Uncensored (Maximus_4EVR) and it perked me up a bit after the SCOTUS decision, which Rudy also said was a mere bump in the road never really intended to be The Thing. Maybe this Maximus dude is known around here and considered a big wish-caster.

He cites this 1876 move in which a handful of states sent competing slates of electors and swung the election to Rutherford B. Hayes. Also another potential move in which one Senator and one House member object to an elector or a state slate, then (process process) and the vote winds up in the House.

Is this crazy wish-casting? I don't see how Ted Cruz and Devin Nunes DON'T try this move if it's for real.

And just to further emphasize the point, I'm using the Duck Duck Go search engine. Their results, while they may not "track" me, are basically the same as Google's.

The ONE item on the front page from any type of traditional corporate media is the AP headline. Usually anything you search on DDG, like with most search engines, will be filled with corporate media links on the first page.

Everything else on the page, beside AP though, is non-corporate media, talking about his "impassioned" speech.

So the point stands. Where corporate media does not straight up lie, they put a clampdown on it, and pretend it doesn't exist.

77 He cites this 1876 move in which a handful of states sent competing slates of electors and swung the election to Rutherford B. Hayes. Also another potential move in which one Senator and one House member object to an elector or a state slate, then (process process) and the vote winds up in the House.

97 Morning all. I have to admit that I have Rona Fatigue. It's a beaten to death horse. I have had the Rona, as have many of my family. I suspect I have had it twice, as a matter of fact. ( Second time was a bump in the road). Nobody of the numerous people I know who have had it have died, but there is always someone who knows someone who had someone die from it. They always had underlying conditions, so, who knows.

Point being, all of this has worn me out. We don't do any lockdowns or mandates here, never have, and the Rona cases are no higher than places that are all in on restrictions. Make of that what you will. My Doctor friend, eight months ago, said eventually everyone will get it, that's how a Coronavirus rolls. Presciently, perhaps, he also said that a vaccine for a coronavirus was a bad joke, because of the mutational nature of the litttle buggers.
I know we have elevated the coronavirus to the status of Boogeyman, and every time I hear people use the anti-Boogeyman incantations going around now, I would like to hit them with a brick.
Have a nice weekend.

The compromise that ended that election was the official end of Reconstruction in the south, so okay here's your Rutherford B. Hayes presidency in exchange for the north going home. The end of Reconstruction allowed the demoncrats to get their KKK army up and running, leading to disenfranchisement of the black population and subsequent waves of terror unchecked by law enforcement for decades.

In that election they also blew right past all the dates for finishing up the election, including the date/time of the inauguration. I believe Hayes didn't get sworn in until March.

And when people get uppity about being locked up, they say we're being "hysterical," which is a symptom of the Covids, and is why we need to be locked down more.

My company operates offices in about 90 cities and towns around America, and my job entails interaction with all of them, so I have at least glimpses from a high altitude.

Due to my n***a PDT's boom economy, we've posted year over year GROWTH in 2020. But this belies the situation on the ground.

In red (sane) markets we are KILLING it. Just killing it. Our competitors tremble before our might. In blue (insane) markets, they suffer along us. We had to lay off 25% of our total workforce, largely due to our east and west coast franchises, which are hanging on by their fingernails to subsidies provided by the home office, which wants to keep a pied-a-terre in these cities, for when (if) the madness passes.

That situation will deteriorate rapidly, and soon. We can't afford this forever.

IOW: if you're in a place that isn't feeling this, it all seems silly. But it won't soon. Stopgaps and bandaids and hope for a return to bust-out Trump growth will in fact quit working soon, and then EVERYONE will get a taste of that pain.

Regardless, sorry for your loss my man. Hang in there. You can tell by people like Runner that there are people that care.

At least you can watch it again. I don't know if that is a blessing or not. I recall doing a pretty good job speaking at my own dad's funeral. It was the last thing I wanted to to, because of the loss and I don't like public speaking. But I had to do it. I was proud of it in some ways if for no other reason, to support my mother. It turns out the church botched the recording and the entire recording of the service was ruined.

I was irate about that for quite a while. People kept asking me for a recording I could not give them. Not sure why I am telling you this but I guess net streaming has some advantages. It is a different world, there is no doubt there.

I know you're not in a good place right now but as soon as it's allowed, businesses that have gone under will be replaced by others or maybe the same people if the demand is there. You may be correct about Commercial real estate though as companies have seen the cost savings from working at home. I think though that it will stabilize.

I'm thinking maybe United isn't such a great airline to fly, if there's one thing I want out of an airline it's lots and lots of energy being expended on my behalf if I'm 8 miles high in one of their planes.

Downtowns in many cities across the country are empty right now, and are too dangerous to even visit. The criminal class has been released from jails and prisons because of the Chyna virus, and crime is skyrocketing. Armed Carjacking of cars stopped at red lights is becoming a thing, you can't drive through many cities now. That driver in NYC yesterday whose car was being beaten on by the BLM thugs, she took off in fear of her life, hit of few of the thugs, and now she has been arrested.

The new normal, if it comes to pass, is no more middle class. There will be serfs, and there will be the elites. The small business/merchant class that is the backbone of the US is being systematically ground to dust.

My father had a significant heart issue last week and was hospitalized for three days. Local crappy hospital can't figure out the cause, so he gets sent home and was told to talk to his cardiologist, because, by the way, 30% of his heart isn't working and he 'probably' needs stents. Cardiologist gives him an appointment TWO WEEKS out, just to evaluate. Now we sit and wait his heart doesn't give out til then? It is unbelievably upsetting.

Famines have been, for most of human history, political events. Most of the damage done by famines is a result of the supply being cut off by someone in power, in order to consolidate power, or... straight up kill their enemies.

It would be hard to execute a famine in the U.S., but you sure as hell can create panic, which is almost as effective. Just look at our toilet paper situation back in March.

So, which medications are readily available, and which ones are not? Where's the data demonstrating the effectiveness of same?

Skunks are tremendously effective at being able to clear out other animals (of course), so what they do sometimes is wait for the bunnies or other cute furry critters to set up a den... then they arrive.

The cute critters leave behind all the goodies they've gathered, and the nice cozy den.

Good man.

As for the failing kids and the music teacher in tears... it's not only the kids whose lives are being wasted I see. Some teachers are in it because they love to teach. Of course those are the ones who must be stopped. Anyway, a mass of eager consumers and a mass of eager producers being kept from each other. Insane.

228 I agree with you. I just wonder if we had total deaths, for 2018, 2019, 2020, from counties all over the country. People would see that nothing is happening.
We have a bunch of people, even here, cowering in fear over the covid, *Oh, my friend of a friend has it, and it seems really bad.*
Yeah, your friend with at least two serious pre-existing illnesses, may die of the flu. It happens.
Posted by: MikeM at December 12, 2020 12:23 PM (np8OD)


I think it must be patently obvious to all, that the flow of information is being controlled, and whatever the truth is about ANY of this must be questioned.

Including the anecdotal stories people tell about this person or that, who supposedly got really really sick and/or died from the Covids.

We only "know" people are getting sick and dying from the Covids because they tell us it's the Covids.

Meanwhile, is anybody tracking all these other bugs that cull the population, year after year after year? What do those numbers tell us about death? What's DIFFERENT about death this year, other than the fact that EVERYONE is overly focused on this ONE thing?

241 Hubby just had it; he's fine. The dr. told him to not come in for negative test but just to assume he's fine 10 days after symptoms started unless he still felt bad. Dr said the virus can linger in small amounts for months leading to what is a misleading 'positive' result. I assume this is the same w/any flu.
The dr. was exasperated with people who don't have symptoms getting tested.
BTW, hubby felt fine after about 5 days.

It would help the Commercial Real Estate market if they would actually answer their phones, update their online listings and pull down their sale/lease signs off of properties. I've been trying to find some small warehouse/shop space to lease and it's like no one's interested in getting anything rented out. No answers to phones or emails etc. If they do answer, there's a distinct air of "that's rented out, now leave me alone" about their responses.

The fbi, doj and Detroit police all conspired to ruin this kid because he got in the way of their own drug dealing operations. And then in 2015 a judge said this is fucked up release this guy and the current DA said nope, appealed it and got that reversed. The DA was connected to the former mayor of Detroit 30 years later.

That's great! We have been open since the 5th of July.

Great! but we can't do live streaming as we don't have a phone or internet connection, so we 'd have to tape it in advance and upload it or whatever you call it which takes forever. The phone line for the church is my phone. I think if the Bishop wants to have live streaming he should pay for the the smaller. less affluent churches to have that. After all, we've always been very good paying our yearly tax which goes towards the denomination "dues".

While I generally avoid the scrum here, I do occasionally want to know what everyone else is saying.

So even on the heavily "political" threads here, I've taken to skimming past all the usual talk, pick out the key words in the comments (or avoid certain commenters altogether), and if it contains a subject I'm interested in, I'll read it. If it doesn't, I won't.

So in that sense, AoSHQ is already the alternate, "politics-free" site for me. When I want it to be.

Bobby Darin was great! I hadn't heard this story before, but it reminds me of a similar situation.

Carl Reiner was a guest on the Tonight Show, and Carson asked the great comedy film director who was the funniest guy in the world.

Reiner said something to the effect of, "Well, there's two... Mel Brooks, and this little twelve-year-old friend of my son Meathead, named Albert Einstein."

This kid Albert went on to a pretty good career in Hollywood. He couldn't really use his real name, though, for reasons you can probably guess. Since such an authoritative source had mentioned him in the same sentence as Mel Brooks, he adopted Brooks as his stage name. Albert Brooks.

Another related fact... Albert's brother Bob Einstein also became a famous comedian, under the name "Super Dave" Osborne.

We are not compliant and pliable here in Mo. Notice has already been given in my neck of the woods that mandates are DOA, by all the powers that be that matter. We will be one of those " pockets of resistance" that will be hard to " pacify". My guess is we will be ignored in favor of other oppresion targets of Joe Dirt.

I was led to believe, eons ago, that I have an aptitude for picking up foreign languages, but I don't wanna, so I never did.

Occasionally I get it in my head (at my "advanced" age) that I want to learn the guitar. And then I watch some Rick Beato videos, where he's talking about "the greatest alternate chord songs of all time," or similar subjects, and he starts explaining it... my brain goes soft, and I think there's absolutely no way I can learn this thing well enough to actually want to hear myself doing it.

It becomes the "foreign language" my brain seems to be capable of learning, but doesn't want to.

Baseball buddy had it. He's back, and said he's had worse cases of the flu. And he's 72. Anecdata, but still ...

Here's the tell in my book: if the Chinese crud were REALLY that lethal, there wouldn't be all these bizarre and irrational carve-outs on restrictions. Say it were like Ebola: would there be curfews, some retail businesses open, others not, and Democrat politicians whooping it up in public gatherings, and no restrictions on worthless ghetto scum rioting and looting concerned inner city Americans peacefully protesting? No, of course not.

Inference: the Red politicians KNOW it's not that big a deal. It's just a pretext for seizing more power over others.

326 "CCP attacked our country with a biological weapon. CCP attacked us again to steal election. CCP wants our land to grow food. We shall NEVER let them take it."

idk what he is talking about, but it rings true. China has been buying up resources across the globe, and moving their CCP people in when possible. Africa seems dominated by CCP influence. Aussies currently taking a hit with big tariffs.


Home prices in some areas are probably driven higher by China infiltration. (and most are probably CCP, not "capitalists from Hong Kong" ... which was always largely a portal for China to the West anyway). We should not let any foreigners gain too much foothold in the US, certainly not our enemies.

And it terrifies me, but I do have elderly relatives. If any of them get hospitalized with life-threatening conditions and some bureaucrat tells me they'll have to die alone because of COVID, I may wind up in the news and then imprisoned.

And threatened to call the sheriff and have me arrested for trespassing if I refused. I complied because my extended family was staying there as well. I did call the sheriff's to confirm if the manager was right. They confirmed and said they have made many arrest since the county wide mandate went into effect.

356 Somebody in a post above mentioned Sammy Davis Junior. found this comment on "The Virtual Jewish Library"

In 1954 he almost died in a car accident where he lost his left eye. While in the hospital, his friend Eddie Cantor enlightened him on the similarities between the Jewish and black cultures. Davis converted to Judaism after reading Paul Johnson's A History of the Jews in the hospital. One paragraph about the ultimate endurance of the Jewish people intrigued him in particular: The Jews would not die. Three centuries of prophetic teaching had given them an unwavering spirit of resignation and had created in them a will to live which no disaster could crush.

I feel as though I'm living in Groundhog Day. This is EXACTLY what happened in California 50 years ago. ABSOLUTELY THE SAME. The rot starts as a small tumor (Berkeley/SF in CA, Tucson in AZ, Austin now in TX) and then metastasizes elsewhere.

How can Californians tolerate the inevitable next hike in gas taxes while more illegals and homeless take over the landscape, the schools, etc?

Exactly how DeepState and CCP are playing this "game", idk.

===================


I'm looking for stuff like that too. Something to motivate the Republicans to actually do their jobs. It seems obvious that military intelligence ("the Kraken") is handling this, and Sidney Powell said that she recently received intercepted communications between the 4 Venezuelans at Dominion who planned TheSteal that show exactly what they were up to. So that was probably from them.

I suspect the Swalwell thing is part of this too. It's not just some coincidence that we're talking about a compromised Congressman at the same time the Chinese sponsored an attack on our election. My thinking is that they're telling the co-conspirators in America that time is up, and they need to start talking and make a deal, or they could end up hanging from a rope in GITMO.

At the same time, Ric Grennell was on Hannity (last night?) and said that Swalwell is just "the tip of the ice berg". So that fits with what I'm thinking.

They MIGHT also be signaling that CIA has been re-taken by the good guys (Haspel out of the picture). At any rate, I think this is about the election, and the traitors among us are wetting their pants right now.

THE THING TO REMEMBER IN ALL THIS IS THAT REPUBLICANS HOLD ALL THE POWER. The Republican state legislatures can do it (only some of them!). Republican SCOTUS nominees can do it. Even Republican CONGRESSMAN can do it. And it's ANY of the above, NOT all of them.

It's absurd that we have to be on the edge of our seats, or just be despondent, because we can't rely on our own guys to stick up for their OWN side, instead of letting the OTHER side steal from them!!

I know nothing about this stuff, but a quick search yielded a couple key points. First, in some countries it's only approved for veterinary use. Second, it appears under a gazillion brand names, meaning nobody holds the exclusive patent anymore... and in the long long list of brand names, I saw countries listed for each. I don't think I saw China on the list anywhere. Lots of South American and Asian countries. Not China.

Well, we know at least one moron lost his young daughter to this insanity. I have little doubt, now approaching a year that the mental toll is like nothing this country, much less planet has gone through. At least with previous wars we've been fighting a mostly uniformed enemy with mostly defined borders.

Now the enemy is internal, along with an unseen danger. The fear is palpable every time I go out. Back in the day, the scared people built fallout shelters - at least that made sense. Now? People wearing surgical gloves, 2 masks and a faceshield. Driving in a car by themselves, or walking on an empty trail in an open space district.

We're also fighting people who cannot think for themselves, and need to be told what to do. They in turn impart their new "knowledge" on us, usually in the form of harassment and meltdowns. The shit I see just in a store when I go out for as short a time as possible is a combination of Idiocracy and Twilight Zone. And it's not stopping any time soon.

We're going to see an entire generation of neurotic, depressed kids emerging on the other side of this thing. I can't even imagine what this would be like for a young teen who had a taste of sanity, only to be plunged into this shitshow. There must be a reckoning.

A couple years ago, we were in the vicinity, and stopped for lunch at a McDonalds. Unbeknownst to me beforehand, there were football players at this very same McDonalds. I think they were high screwel, but hell, they MIGHT have been college. I really don't know.

They were holding some sort of event, and there were players as well as cheerleaders walking among the customers, giving away posters of themselves, I guess. Which is why I think they might have been college and not high screwel. Who can afford that?

Anyhoo, a football player approached me and my son, and tried to give him a poster. I said he didn't want it. He told me it was free, and it was just to.... whatever, before he went into his spiel, I more forcefully said "he doesn't want it."

Lady I work with told me yesterday that on Thurs. her granddaughter was called into the office with no explanation. Her parents were called and made to take her home. She is 12.

Reason= she may have been exposed to wuhan. Now no school, no gym, no nothing. This is in a rural area. This shit is sick and needs to stop.

414 One of the saints of the board-the kind and compassionate Bluebell shared yesterday that today is the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The Virgin Mary is the patroness of North and South America for the Virgin of Guadalupe since she appeared to a peasant in Mexico City and the vision which he had of her appeared on his cloak. It is a very interesting story, for those that have an interest in that sort of thing. (I do) So, anyway, Bluebell shared that she was going to ask for the Virgin Mary-the Virgin of Guadalupe to pray for America today:

Burning bottles rained down from the rooftops and cooked everything they touched. I could only hide myself and cry as my Wal-Mart was consumed by the fiery liquid death. As soon as the election had been purloined, the Democrats were gone. It was on that day I put a jihad on them.

I've actually seen very little gloating from Leftists either in real life or in the media and at first I attributed it to fear that the other shoe would drop and the fraud would be found out and the election outcome "reversed."
But just like Trump, they didn't realize how weak and craven most elected Republicans are.

SCOTUS just didn't have the balls to hear the case--which would have meant looking into the evidence that they didn't want to see--and that they didn't want you to see.
I don't think it was really dislike of Trump--except for Roberts and the two lesbians--but rather a fear that if the truth were known, we'd go ape shit.

If you don't know who Klaus Schwab is, don't worry. He knows who YOU are. This of this book as the Mein Kampf for the 21st century. He's telling you everything.

I was encouraged by the "reviews" on Amazon, wave after wave of people saying the same thing: This is their plan.

Read the book... or don't. It's possible to go down the rabbit hole without necessarily reading the whole damn book. It's also possible to turn away, because it's too uncomfortable to face this stuff.

I have read that Quercetin can interfere with a drug used to prevent organ rejection, and with thyroid meds. Those are the only ones I've heard about.

If there are others, it would be nice to learn about them. I take 500 mg at night, as a substitute for decongestants. Just had bloodwork done. Thyroid is OK.

Regular Quercetin doesn't absorb very well unless taken with Vitamin C, or maybe with food containing fat. It's not something you should take on an empty stomach. There are special forms that are supposed to absorb better.

The protocol put out by Marik has lowered the recommended amount of Quercetin to 250 mg a day, if I recall correctly, for prophylaxis, raising it to twice a day for early treatment. I think the one put out by his group has the same recommendations for Quercetin.

If he ever was going to do it, he would do it not for himself but for the people. If the people marched on Washington and begged for help, he might be motivated to act.

That's true. I got ticketed on 70 in Kansas a few years ago. I thought it was weird nobody was driving very fast, and was passing everybody... until I saw an SUV coming up behind me. Was thinking "finally, another wise traveler," and then he turned on his cherry lights.

Still, the drive through Nebraska is more boring than Kansas.

476 SCOTUS just didn't have the balls to hear the case--which would have meant looking into the evidence that they didn't want to see--and that they didn't want you to see.

I don't think it was really dislike of Trump--except for Roberts and the two lesbians--but rather a fear that if the truth were known, we'd go ape shit.

There is going to be Hell to pay. In what form this will take --and who will feel the brunt of it the most--I have no idea.

But it's coming.


In that case the SCOTUS is fucking worthless and are lying every time that open their stupid suck-holes about their bullshit professed love for the Constitution.


There are more cases in front of them. If they reject them all then they can be removed from their offices like the rest.

Do you want military tribunals? Because this is how you get military tribunals.

And history will remember them as the Nine Cowardly Shit.

My most recent ticket was in Glenwood Springs. The guy told me there had been a recent fatality in the area, so they were clamping down. I wonder if he says that every time he pulls someone over.

Anyhoo, he could have ticketed me at a much higher speed, in a construction zone, and basically gave me a "break" on it. So there's that.

As for west of Green River, now you're in Utah. I don't think they have cops in Utah.

Why haven't they been tossed? If SCOTUS is simply selling us out, it doesn't need the veneer of waiting for opposing briefs, etc.

By the way, proteins/amino acids are digested differently than other nutrients such as vitamins. Proteins/amino acids generally require an empty stomach to reduce competition in absorption. Most other kinds of nutrients require some kind of fat for the body to generate chyme (IIRC) or whatever it is that helps absorb food. examine.com and consumerlab.com are great sources of info on nutrients.

541 Let's say the Republicans win both seats. First thing they will do is sell us out. Lee, Romney, Sasse, Murkowski, Collins. It's the party of sell outs. I'm not saying I don't want them to win but they will sell us out as they always do. What's Bongino's line a lot of Republicans are Democrat and all Democrats are Democrats.

Bingo, circle gets the square, etc.

It's not about showing anyone anything. It's about living in a bicameral system where a two-party setup is practically guaranteed. And where the center-left Republicans act as a stalking horse for the Communist Democrats, with no representation whatsoever for half the country.

If a new, Right Party is to live, then the Republican Party must die. It's that simple, no two ways about it - they must go.

Even if elections don't matter anymore, and we have to resort to Solidarity Party tactics to be heard, no such Party can exist here with these fucking scum running around.

Destroy the GOP.

I don't know jack squat about where these things fit, in legal terms, but from where I am sitting, it didn't seem to make sense to me that Texas was bringing the case that would result in the SC taking up the topic.

And no, I'm not looking for the legal beagles here to explain to me where I'm wrong. My eyes glaze over, my tongue rolls back in my head, and I go looking at cat videos instead of following the arguments.

549 some of you guys make Cowboys fans seem loyal. I say we can clear out the GOP and still try to not lose all of our rights. Do you guys see a major national election after GA that I am not seeing? The Left doesn't take hints, they don't worry about pet causes. They do everything they can to win right up to, and passed, cheating.

We can blow the party up after this election. Usually this type of stuff is done in primaries. If some want to bring on whatever, that is on them I say that will not happen, but we will be in deep shit if we lose the Senate. As bad as things seem now, the dems have a very weak hold on power. We can turn it around in two years and neuter the fraud. Or we can blow ourselves up for some pipe dream of a cause.
Nah, I like my 2A and 1A too much. I say vote Repub and then turn on the Rinos. But if this is still so divisive, it likely will finish us in the purple going blue state of GA.

555 Dems have a "weak hold on power"?? Huh?

Not hardly. They just beat, or cheated out, one of the best presidents in our history with a non-candidate, with no campaign.

The institutions are garbage, all of them, really, at this point.

Whoever actually runs the Oval starting Jan. 20 can, and will, undo 95% of Trump's accomplishments with the stroke of a pen - because that's how they were achieved in the first place. Congress is a non-factor.

USMCA may be the only exception, but given the overall collapse of rule and law and accountability, I think there may be ways to use executive discretion to gut that as well.

1st amendment? 2nd amendment? For most of the country's population, those things are at best only partially in force already.

Lindsey will be the lead GOP sponsor and face of the DACA/amnesty bill that's coming. The two GA seats will make no difference in that getting passed - it will.

And if the Dems, against all the odds, actually do anything legislatively that is "radical" (note: massive bailouts for blue s***holes, and for favored industries, is not "radical" and will be supported by 90% of the GOP office-holders), then ..... the mid-terms!!!!!!

"We" will win those!!!!!!!

And if 5% of the GOP is primaried and replaced with responsible intelligent non-midgets by then, I'll eat this laptop. Ridiculous to pretend that could happen.

It led to .......

Go ahead, remind me. At the moment I can't think of a single thing accomplished, or disaster averted, as a result of that earthquake.

2010, and Trump (both times) were very rare examples of authentic organic grass-roots political rebellion by an electorate. The precise opposite of the scripted herding of self-dealing robots or illiterate teenage girls (200.

The "system" absorbed all of these challenges and crushed them without breaking a sweat. Only possible because so much of the country is so ignorant, bigoted, selfish, and irresponsible.

Now, another round of Unaccompanied Minor Olympics is starting at the border, exploiting (surprise!!!) more judicial vandalism.

On the signature issue which made Trump candidate and president, within 2 months, it will be like he never existed.

And there's no reason to believe that more than small minority of the electorate likes this. Illegal migration/immigration continues to rank at record high levels in unscripted, no-menu, seriously done opinion surveys - highest score ever seen outside "war" during, of course, war-time. And besides "the economy", which is always #1, always, automatically.

And the GOP, our bulwark against, well, something or other, while every day brought new lurid revelations of Third World lawlessness in the election process, responded by ..... voice-voting through Big Tech's priority for the last 2 years, on H-1Bs (after supporting related outrages for the last 4 years straight, BTW).

they lost a bunch of seats in the House. They would be poised to lose the Senate if we were not trying to out conservative or out righteous each other. They did not gain a single state legislature, and half the country believes they are cheats.

For a so called winner, Biden may have had the worst coat tails in history. But let's nuke our own team to make it easier for them to say this was all legit. Because if we give up, they will play nice and people will realize we wuz wronged. No, they will laugh and say they just proved this was a repudiation. They will be over Trump. They will say it repudiates McConnell, Cruz, and you and me. Fine, have at it. I have been at this game long enough to know the Dems are laughing their arses off at these arguments. No troll could even dream of sowing this much discord.

Ask yourself, not just you Rhomboid, a grey box friend, but everyone. Were you rooting for Repub wins across the board a month ago? And if you belive we were cheated then, why turn on your own side now? There is only this election. Any infighting can be done later. But I am done with this. I hope this is mostly a net thing, and I believe it is. But at this point, turning off even a percent or two could make a difference. But make no mistake if you support tanking. At best only a percent or two will join your side. It might be enough to please the Lincoln Project, but it will still be a tiny percentage of Repubs in GA.

Trump's Army was stronger and more red-pilled, momentum and awareness had grown stronger. And Trump results were more than the original "tea-party" ... which got taken over from within and by Mitch and establishment that went after them with a vengeance. And then Trump won in a landslide, yet to be determined if that qualifies as being "crushed".


Only IF Biden gets in does the potential Crushing happen ... if DeepState overplayed its hands with a raw theft of election, they may be the ones that get crushed ... or at least their may be a momentum shift against the globalists. Many "centrists" are not on the BigMafia side. imo

This is a twist of logic. Refusing to accept the results of November is what everyone should be doing.Perdue's election would likely have happened without Dominion or other cheating. Loeffler should not have won her election any more than Biden should have.

China -owned Kemp appointed Loeffler.

Leffler wants to hide the truth about election results because she benefitted from election fraud.


Until Loeffler calls for signature verification from November and calls out Kemp and election fraud, she is Xi in a dress.

I don't believe that. There is no way most if not all military ballots were for Biden. I get people are pissed But we can't just say anything. any proof at all for this?
I just checked out Loeffler online. She seems like a major BS'er and GOPe. She says "local communities" should rename military bases. So what does that mean exactly? Does Columbus GA decide the new name for Ft. Benning. Do the troops there get a vote? I know when I was there 99 percent of troops had no clue who Ft. Benning was named for and 100 percent did not care.

Still, even as a GOPe, she is better than the alternative. But I do get why people are pissed. I am pissed too. It is just that I want to check the liberal fascists at every turn. Still we need to get rid of people who don't give a damn when it comes down to it. To me it is just timing. But I do see where this thing could easily fall apart.

If either of those two vote to override the president's veto, they should not expect a lot of support. Again, they are better than the alternative in my book. But yes, there is a major problem, we all see it and something does need to be done.

600 Still, even as a GOPe, she is better than the alternative. But I do get
why people are pissed. I am pissed too. It is just that I want to check
the liberal fascists at every turn.


Agreed. I don't mind voting for a RINO asshole. My problem remains that voting for Loeffler is voting AGAINST Stopping the Steal from November.

Bitch just wants us all to forget November, kiss her ass and Moveon.org.

Fuck that. She wants to be a Senatewhore and get my vote tucked in that gstring?


She better start shaking that ass now.

reports on the net now) where almost,if not all, military ballots were

for Biden.

i misunderstood you there Burnt Toast. Thanks for mentioning that, it does sound crazy. I thought you were talking about something else and then said all military votes went for Biden. 900 votes is beyond questionable if they went for that schmuck.

The Constitution is 4 pages.

We're furious because Originalists treated a simple matter of federalism as a contentious, even unanswerable, question of "standing."

No state would have joined the union knowing the other 49 can violate the Electors Clause. Or any clause. The end.

Only we would, with a straight face, pile praise upon Lincoln - while simultaneously supporting pretty much every other little territory in the world that wants independence.

Honestly - to be consistent - the "War of Southern Butt Hurt" bunch should be telling Taiwan and Hong Kong to shut the fvck up and accept their fate.

621 Stop responding to the trolls. That's what they want. Aside from Trump hasn't lost 58 cases, the last thing he wants is to win one below the Supreme Court level because that would take forever to resolve. It's not like the judges are actually reviewing the evidence considering there hasn't even been a summary judgment motion.

If the DNI has the alleged German machines, and releases the info, can the election be repaired, or will the DOJ even act against the foreign entities and their US accomplices? It's not impossible that the DOJ was in on the deal, so I think they'll move to make the EO unconstitutional despite all their BS about muh Russia

I forget what it was, but Esper had a disagreement with PDT and resigned over it. One of the Congress women in my state is a former CIA apparatchik and noted immediately that PDT might be planning to do something that his SecDef wouldn't go along with.
