2023·07·15 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

No science post.

No political rants.

Not even any milder political stuff.

Not today.

Today I mark the passing of a friend.

Darwin
June 2018 – 13 July 2023

I went to a reptile show in Denver on November 11, 2018, quite coincidentally the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. There were a fair number of bearded dragons for sale there, but I didn’t want a really tiny, young one; it sounded like there were too many ways for them to come to harm. I opted for one about 5 months old, one who seemed to be a mix of green, yellow and orange, without being too garish. At the time he was approximately 14″ long including an unusually long tail for a bearded dragon. (He would eventually reach 21 3/4 inches. Some told me if they hadn’t actually seen him, they would have thought the long tail was a photoshop.)

A wild bearded dragon’s color is generally a mix of grays and dull tans, though the pattern is fairly intricate. But reptile breeders love to select for very unnatural color schemes. Red like flaming hot Cheetoh. Bright yellow like a lemon. Or even an albino. Or different skin textures, such as silky smooth, instead of very rough. (The spikes along the sides are actually pretty soft, but the skin naturally feels like rough grit sandpaper.) They give all of these morphs (and others I haven’t described) names.

I didn’t go too outrageous on the color…I could almost imagine Darwin’s color being decent camouflage in central Australia. That’s where his particular species (one of eight bearded dragon species, and by far the most common of the eight in the pet trade) is from. And it turned out the green coloration is an illusion; he often exhibited spotty gray coloration which when in close proximity to the yellow, looks a drab greenish. When he was upset the gray color would disappear leaving him looking a drab yellow on the head where there is no orange.

It turned out that my lizard was a “hypo, orange tiger stripe dunner.” (Hypo simply meant hypomelanistic, and the prime indicator is clear, rather than black, claws. Dunner has to do with the pattern of scales on the belly.)

I named him Darwin, not after Charles, but after the city of Darwin in Australia, which got its name from the bay it is on, which in turn was named that in the 1830s. Since Charles didn’t become famous until 1859 with the publication of Origin of Species, I concluded the city was not named after him.

Darwin on his first day at my house. Notice the S the seller put on him to mark him as having been sold to me, while I went and visited the rest of the reptile show. (It came off the first time he shed.)

I was wrong. The city was named by the crew of the HMS Beagle, after Charles Darwin who had been on the ship collecting the specimens that would eventually lead him to knowledge of evolution by natural selection. Apparently they had liked him well enough to name places after him–well before he was famous.

Darwin, this time I mean the lizard, had one thing in common with Charles. He was very likeable. To hell with “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Everybody loved Darwin.

A few weeks later, he went through an almost complete shed, starting with his head. He looks for all the world as if he’s disgusted with the fact that his head just exploded.

It is easy (though painful) to eulogize him; there’s no mentally editing out bad personality traits with a “let’s not talk about that” or a “maybe I can make a joke of this.”

Later on during the same December 2018 shed, on his basking rock. Beardies will sometimes get rid of excess heat by opening their mouths, as shown here. To the right you can see the “reverse cape” of the skin that came off.
That was the only time he ever shed that much, all at the same time.

Darwin did have a personality, contrary to those who diss reptiles as not having personalities. In fact, his personality was better than that of most people–a sentiment echoed by a condolence card I received after I wrote the first draft of this.

I could show pictures of him on my office chair (or keyboard) during the early COVID lockdown (it was designated “take your lizard to work week” in this house) and people would spontaneously tell me on the basis of the photographs alone that they had never seen such personality in a lizard.

Weirdest cat I ever saw.
What’s down there?

I could take him to street markets, perched on my shoulder and people would be delighted to see him, he was a favorite of kids.

Of course the downside is he sometimes proofread my posts.

“Steve, you don’t actually mean that, do you?”

The people at the vet’s office loved Darwin too; they’d fawn over him more than they would most people’s dogs.

His picture is posted in four locations in this county, one a business whose owner would be appalled to find I actually write for a “Trumper” site like this. He’s the unofficial mascot of that store.

Early 2021

Or rather, he was.

A few months ago I noticed he was having trouble with his back legs, which were swollen. I called for an appointment at the vet, and had to wait a month.

The news was grim. He almost certainly had kidney cancer; it was hugely swollen in the ultrasound. However, there was one dim hope: It might only be a kidney infection.

So began a course of fifteen antibiotic shots, two every week. After the fifth shot, though, there would be evaluation, and if there were no improvement, well, it would be the time for that “quality of life” discussion.

An image taken the day of the evaluation trip to the vet…when I thought he might end up being put down.
Note how swollen the rear ankle is. He had no use of his rear feet then though at least he could move the leg as a whole by this time.

Well, wouldn’t you know, it seemed to be working. The vet was ecstatic; he truly thought the infection was very unlikely, but since it was treatable and the cancer was not, it had been worth the gamble.

And even though I don’t like driving to the part of town the vet is located at, I was overjoyed to hear I’d be doing it ten more times for the rest of the shots. (I couldn’t get the hang of injecting him. The vet could do it without Darwin even noticing; in my case he’d try to get away from my attempts.)

So we went through the ten remaining shots, and scheduled a follow up for a month after the last shot; that follow-up was this past Thursday.

A week ago I noticed Darwin wasn’t climbing to the top of his basking rock. Basking is a necessity for many reptiles, it helps them digest their food. Now, instead of his rear legs being useless, it was his front legs…which I tend to call arms when I’m not thinking, as he grasped with those feet (“hands”).

And his appetite was off.

He was basically unable to lift himself off the ground. Whereas before he could drag himself up the basking rock with his front legs, he couldn’t do that now with no motion in those legs.

I thought this might be any one of the bugs and other micro-critters that sometimes infest the digestive tracts of reptiles (some of them can get us too: pinworms, for instance). He’d had a lot of difficulty with those in the past. He left me with a sample of well, you know, on Monday which I duly collected and refrigerated, knowing the vet could check it over. (He very uncharacteristically deposited it inside his hide, rather than onto his basking rock. And didn’t move after he left it.)

Alas this past Thursday the verdict was…”And” logic. He had had an infection and cancer. And with the infection gone, the cancer was progressing rapidly now.

It was time to make The Decision. So at roughly 4PM on Thursday, Darwin–who brought a smile if not joy to everyone he met, even to people who don’t like lizards–Darwin was no more.

His light, small as it was, has left this world of gathering darkness.

The photograph at the top of the post is of Darwin being held by a tech at the vet’s office, less than an hour before he was put to sleep. The mere fact that his front legs aren’t gripping something should tell you how bad it was.

I have other pictures of him on the table, and him being held on, then on me.

He found the strength to move from my arm partway onto my chest (which he liked to do), even five minutes before he took his last sleep.

Spot (i.e., paper) Prices

Last week:

Gold $1,925.40
Silver $23.16
Platinum $920.00
Palladium $1,278.00
Rhodium $5,250.00

This week, 3PM Mountain Time, markets have closed for the weekend.

Gold $1,955.30
Silver $24.96
Platinum $982.00
Palladium $1,304.00
Rhodium $5,450.00

Things up a bit, especially gold. Gold was down for the day on Friday, so clearly Thursday’s numbers were even higher. Silver closed up one cent versus Thursday.

Obligatory PSAs and Reminders

References to our opponents as “Lizard People” are officially in poor taste today.

Darwin had ten million times as much personality as they do.

And not one shred of evil.

China is Lower than Whale Shit

Remember Hong Kong!!!

China is in the White House

Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for His Fraudulency Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.

Joe Biden is Asshoe

China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.

But of course the much more important thing to realize:

Steve, I’m so sorry about your loss of Darwin. Whenever you mentioned him, it felt like he was a part of things here. Thank you for sharing more about him, the photos, and your experiences with him. He was a little light in this dark world!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Amen!

Darwin may not have been the site mascot, but he was one of “our pets”, and almost certainly the most famous one.

My sympathies as well, Steve. Darwin was very fortunate to have such a kind and caring owner. He led a very interesting and adventurous life, for his species!

TheseTruths

I was always amazed at the knowledge that was required to know how to care for him properly. I suppose it’s that way with most creatures, but this was foreign to me. But characteristically, Steve, you seemed to know and understand all that he needed and all that was going on with him. I agree with Wolf that he was fortunate to be in your care.

pgroup2

Well, he could still be this site’s mascot …

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

James Coburn has a lock on that one! 😉

Although he (meaning Darwin) could be our animal mascot as a separate thing!

A different type of lizard, to be sure, but a lizard nonetheless.

Steve you were a shining light to Darwin and he was yours. The blessing he gave you and joy was apparent when you spoke of him. You were so good to him and I am so sorry he past. Peace

RedLegLeader68

Steve, thank you so much for sharing the news, and life, of Darwin. He will be greatly missed on our site here.

RIP Darwin!

cthulhu

Awwww, Steve, I’m so sorry.

Darwin was the most “pet” of any pet lizard I’ve seen, and a friend of the Tree. He’ll be missed out here in the hinterlands, but nowhere as much as he’ll be missed at home.

Condolences for the loss of your friend and companion.

Barb Meier

Steve, I’m so sorry you’ve lost Darwin. Thank you for letting us know. He had such a nice smile and I loved reading about your lives together and seeing photos of him. He must have trusted you a lot to want to be on your chest and shoulder. I know you will miss him very much, and hope he didn’t hurt having both an infection and cancer. It is so much for any creature to deal with but I know you and your vet did all you could to help him. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Today, I got sidetracked with extra chores and errands but will finish a last look at article 3 in the morning.

TheseTruths

I came across another sad comment on Patriots.Win. I’m posting this information in case anyone wants to use it or save it. I know that some here probably already know this.

Please pray for my son

He has a tumor, we don’t know what exactly it is yet but it’s not looking good. He is five. No he is not vaccinated at all for anything. Please, if anyone knows how to administer fenbendazole, ivermectin, Rick Simpson oil, or anything else that could help, PLEASE post in comments. Prayers are also appreciated. If it’s what they say it most likely is, it is terminal. Please help direct me to the info because I just cannot do it now at my son’s bedside in the hospital. Thank you and please hug your children tightly right now and let them know how much you love them.

Here is one person’s response: 20-guage. I can’t vouch for these links, but they might be helpful.

Here’s a list of cancer resources I’ve been compiling for both IVM and Fenbendazole. (Including where to buy Fenben.)

With Fenbendazole high levels of vitamins are a MUST!

Unexpected Antitumorigenic Effect of Fenbendazole when Combined with Supplementary Vitamins

Abstract

Diet containing the anthelminthic fenbendazole is used often to treat rodent pinworm infections because it is easy to use and has few reported adverse effects on research. However, during fenbendazole treatment at our institution, an established human lymphoma xenograft model in C.B-17/Icr-prkdcscid/Crl (SCID) mice failed to grow. Further investigation revealed that the fenbendazole had been incorporated into a sterilizable diet supplemented with additional vitamins to compensate for loss during autoclaving, but the diet had not been autoclaved. To assess the role of fenbendazole and supplementary vitamins on tumor suppression, 20 vendor-supplied 4-wk-old SCID mice were assigned to 4 treatment groups: standard diet, diet plus fenbendazole, diet plus vitamins, and diet plus both vitamins and fenbendazole. Diet treatment was initiated 2 wk before subcutaneous flank implantation with 3 × 107 lymphoma cells. Tumor size was measured by caliper at 4-d intervals until the largest tumors reached a calculated volume of 1500 mm3. Neither diet supplemented with vitamins alone nor fenbendazole alone caused altered tumor growth as compared with that of controls.👉 However, the group supplemented with both vitamins and fenbendazole exhibited significant inhibition of tumor growth.👈 The mechanism for this synergy is unknown and deserves further investigation. Fenbendazole should be used with caution during tumor studies because it may interact with other treatments and confound research results.

Do not forget you have to get rid of the sugar that feeds the tumor ESP High Fructose Corn Syrup, that mucks up vitamin D.

Poor Darwin. He had a good dad for 5 years. Someone who loved him enough to let his personality develop and enrich lives all around, even if he was a lizard. He was a good one while he was here and I always read every story and mention I saw about him.
I hope after a bit you’ll be ok Steve. He’s your buddy, fluffy or not.Im very sorry.

Im not making fun of or belittling his death in any way, but Im sure, as much as our other pets deserve it, hes in pet heaven, pain free,.eating whatever he wants and looks like this:

Aubergine

I once asked a very Bible-based friend of mine if she thought animals went to Heaven. I knew she would know if there was Biblical precedence for that, or not. And sure enough, she quoted this to me:

Isaiah 66:23
New King James Version
23 And it shall come to pass
That from one New Moon to another,
And from one Sabbath to another,
All flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says the Lord.

It doesn’t say all human flesh, or only people. It says “flesh.” And animals are flesh, just like us.

Aubergine

Lol.

Isaiah is a tough book, by any measure. Prophecy is hard for me to understand, and I am good at analyzing literature as a rule. But this part of Isaiah is about the return of Jesus to us. And this verse is about those who will be gathered before Him to worship.

So it is “all flesh” that will worship before him. But in the context of the rest of the book of Isaiah, this would mean all who would be converted (obviously not including the animals). My own personal belief is, when the time comes and Jesus returns, the opportunity to accept Him as Savior will be available to all.

pgroup2

Compare that view with Christ talking to the fruitless fig tree. We accept Him as our Savior but all creatures “know” Him as ‘Boss’.  🙂

Scripture does say that “every knee shall bow & every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. My understanding is that this happens after death & prior to the separation of the sheep & the goats. Those that are told “depart from me” will still acknowledge Jesus’ lordship over all prior to passing into the flames, at least that’s how it comes across to me.

That scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when the Nazis open the Ark on that Island & all those psychos take a knee on their way to obliteration partially illustrates those concepts above, artistically, to me.

gil00

Good. Im very glad you posted that bc i have heard it said that the Bible excludes. If HE created everything, why would HE deny them? He wouldn’t!

I agree.

Looks like somebody found a way to destroy “Sound of Freedom”.

TheseTruths

I’ve seen negatives about Ballard before but can’t name them witout doing some research. This was bound to happen.
(I’m not able to read any other tweets in that thread. I wish Twitter would go back to normal.)

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Oh, Twitter. So foolish.

It’s rather devastating. They run through a bunch of court documents and utterly destroy his credibility in tweet after tweet. Also noting that he just resigned from some org he founded when this came out.

TheseTruths

I suppose they’re saying or implying that, because he’s not credible, the story of Sound of Freedom is not true? Therefore, there is no child/human trafficking. Problem solved.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. The left will then use this failure to protect child trafficking as a “conspiracy theory based on lies”.

This tweeting group doesn’t seem to be saying it, but they teed it up for the left to say it.

The trouble is, the court documents are related to the case in the movie, and they conflict with many things stated publicly by Ballard. Thus, it’s clear that the “true story” wasn’t true – and liberties were then taken with THAT in making the movie.

kalbokalbs

Liberties are always taken in movies.

Fundamentally, child trafficking is a problem. My, (our?) focus.

Aubergine

See my response to Wolf, above.

piper 567

Kill the messenger.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup.

kalbokalbs

Never expected Tim Ballard was a saint. Everyone has flaws. Some serious, like me.

I have zero interest in Tim Ballard’s flaws. None.

Tim Ballard’s mission to, protect and save children, trumps all. <<< THE FOCUS.

Reminds me of all the attempted character assassination’s of Trump, Melania… Nothing burgers in my book. Won’t click on them. Distractions. Shiny objects.

TradeBait2

Exactly. How many of his detractors have ever lifted one finger to save a child from destruction?

ladypenquin

Exactly. I know nothing of Mr. Ballard – but his work to stop human/child trafficking – that’s what matters.

In the same way, they tried to make DJT out to be a rotten person – but while not a “Saint” – he’d has more decent values and morality than almost all other critters in the public square.

God uses flawed men and women, not “perfect” ones.

Aubergine

I’m going to give you (and everyone here) the answer to this or any other argument against this film.

Let’s suppose the film is pure fiction. Entirely made-up. Is child-trafficking real? Does this film, fictional or not, bring awareness to the nightmare that is child trafficking? If so, what possible difference does it make whether it is real or fictionalized?

DON’T LET THESE FUCKERS TAKE YOU OFF MESSAGE! This movie is NOT ABOUT TIM BALLARD.

And that is the point to make, over and over again. This film is about child trafficking and the sex trade, not about a man, flawed or not.

TheseTruths

I agree. There are lots of news reports of trafficking rings being busted, though. People just don’t want to believe it. Not that it should be necessary, but we need evidence of real, known people engaging in it, like the people on Epstein’s list — not necessarily to try to wake people up, but for justice and to save the victims and potential victims.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Honestly, one of the BEST movies that they could make, would be to simply use the Epstein court documents, and make an R-rated, super-realistic, no exaggerations, “docu-drama” with real-time inclusion of both his teen procurement and his contacts and “invited retreats” with famous people.

It would be utterly explosive, and *BASED ON COURT DOCUMENTS*.

I’ve read these things. They’re horrifying.

Gets the young teen girls to give him the naked massages. Giving them money in twenties to go out and find more. Talking to Ghislaine while the girls tend to him, but then waiting until alone, and having them get him aroused, and making the one who stays undress, and then more massages, and more arousal, and then GRABS THE GIRL, RAPES HER, then when it’s over apologizing about how he couldn’t control himself, etc., and then soothing it over, oh poor thing, it was her first time, but she’s so hot and he could not control himself, and better get dressed, time for business, and here are more twenties…..

This guy was an ultimate creep who could talk his way out of almost anything. And it is SO DOCUMENTED.

We have the testimony. It’s graphic. It’s sordid. It’s multiple and it’s all over the place.

Now, as for Sound of Freedom, the way I see it, is that Ballard was basically “screenplaying” the truth in his exaggerations. The movie is a different (but in some ways similar) screenplay. That’s it. Both his spoken exaggerations and the movie are based on real events documented in court documents.

Yes, child trafficking is real. But is it of exactly the same nature that is shown to people?

The problem is, it’s not something I can use on skeptics. I can go to people with the weapon of 2000 Mules and make rational arguments that we have a cheating problem USING THE FACTS IN THE MOVIE.

I cannot do this with Sound of Freedom.

Their defense – WHICH ADMITTEDLY IS ITS OWN EXAGGERATION – is that the movie is not factual, so theoretically the problem could be small enough for them to ignore it.

Which, of course, they want to do anyway.

The hardcore left will ignore it no matter what, but people in the middle – I simply wish that Ballard had been more careful in what he told people – to stick to the documented truth.

He sold the idea of a movie with his exaggerations, but now we are stuck with those exaggerations.

Aubergine

Well, there is PLENTY of proof of child-trafficking to be found outside of this film! That is not hard to find, at all.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep.

Just look at the southern border…

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes, and the next step IMHO would be to do a “gritty” realistic depiction of a different case. HIT THE AUDIENCE AGAIN, but this time with something that the left cannot dodge.

Aubergine

The REAL footage shown in the beginning of Sound of Freedom was terrifying. Actual surveillance camera views of children just snatched right off the street.

Oprah’s “guru” guy just got sent to prison for raping HUNDREDS of young girls, and for trafficking children:

https://www.planet-today.com/2023/07/oprahs-spiritual-healer-sentenced-to-99.html

It’s still trafficking to sell babies to couples but not for sex. Illegal. Dangerous.

There is all kinds of this stuff out there. The left KNOWS. They “play dumb,” but they know. And they will never, ever admit that their ideology causes this stuff, because they would lose power, and they can’t have that.

We must override and overrule the left in every way possible. They must be shut down and shunned from society forever. They are to be scorned and verboten wherever they go, until they slink back into the closets they came out of for fear of paying the price for their sins here on Earth. They will pay later, no matter what.

She says they understand the anger of people who are interrupted in their daily life. Anger doesn’t begin to describe it for me. Possibilities: people who are not making it to doctor’s appointments, diagnostic testing, funeral home appointments to make arrangements for a deceased loved one. People with groceries in their cars that are spoiling. Some are missing court hearings and crucial business meetings and job interviews that they have worked hard to schedule. IMO there should be huge penalties for blocking the roadways, like many years of prison for the first offense.

Gail Combs

I almost bled to death at age 6 because I severed an artery in my ankle. The only thing that saved me is:

  • I went DOWN HILL to a neighbor instead of up hill to home.
  • A nurse was feeding the neighbors cat because they were on vacation
  • She slapped a tourniquet on my ankle and rushed me to the hospital.

Even with the tourniquet, I could have lost my foot or my life if the road was blocked. As it was I had severe blood lose and other complications. I was very tiny and still wearing the clothes for a 2 year old.

And this is SUPPOSED TO TURN VOTERS OFF?

March 08, 2023

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 28% of Likely U.S. Voters rate Congress’ performance as good or excellent, up from 25% in December and the highest approval in more than 15 years of polling this question.

Thirty-nine percent (39%) think Congress is doing a poor job, down from 45% in December, and the lowest since March 2007. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Not only do voters now have a higher opinion of Congress in general, but of their own representatives. Forty percent (40%) believe their representative in Congress is the best possible person for the job. That’s up from 30% in April 2022, and the highest in the history of surveying on this question.

IIRC Rasmussen got bought a few years back and took a sharp turn left… the copy reads like narrative engineering… in favor of the derp state…

Gail Combs

They are still the best of the bunch.

And let’s face it “…28% of Likely U.S. Voters rate Congress’ performance as good or excellent, up from 25% in December and the highest approval in more than 15 years of polling this question…” Is not exactly rave reviews. It means ~3/4 of the country thinks Congress STINKS!

btw I literally have a Firefly novel checked out Right Now, though haven’t started reading it yet 🙂

Valerie Curren

I checked the entire series out from the library years ago & watched it all. Very interesting & creative w/ the Chyneze cultural factor pretty prescient. I believe the fans were so bummed it got cancelled that they manage to “crowd source” the funding/enthusiasm for a movie, Serenity, iirc, after the cancellation, something practically unheard of. It was a bummer that they killed off some characters so that just that one movie is all there is. I’ve got a novel AND a graphic novel checked out currently so we’ll see if they are decent…

Summer Glau was a very interesting character. She also played a Terminator in the Sarah Conner Chronicles, which was a great library find/watch w/ my sons back in the day. If you haven’t seen that series it’s like an alternate storyline in the Terminator world where they have Sarah & teen John time travel to the post 9/11 world where they have to adapt to all sorts of changes. Summer was a T that was to kill him, I think, or else reprogrammed from the future by John C to protect his mom & himself from other T’s. Given the Mom & teen son dynamic it was perfect for pared down family viewing chez moi back then.

Valerie Curren

Given how popular the show was I don’t get why the rush to cancel it. 🙁

Yesterday, upon the plane
I met a man, not there; insane
He wasn’t there again today,
I wish, I wish he’d go away…

When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door…

Last night I saw upon the stair,
That little man who wasn’t there,
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away…

Utah Sen. Mike Lee says ‘We might have to invoke the War Powers Act’ after Biden authorizes deployment of reservists to Europe

https://www.theblaze.com/news/utah-sen-mike-lee-says-we-might-have-to-invoke-the-war-powers-act-after-biden-authorizes-deployment-of-reservists-to-europe

The War Powers Act states that, unless Congress has declared war, the U.S. military and members thereof cannot be “introduced in hostilities or in situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances” unless:

● they are repelling an armed attack on the U.S., its territories and possessions;

they are taking “necessary and appropriate retaliatory actions in the event of such an attack”;

they are forestalling the direct imminent threat of such an attack;

they are providing protection for evacuation of American citizens; or 

they have “specific statutory authorization,” such as the 2001 “Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

Lee acknowledged that a resolution passed under the War Powers Act could be vetoed by the president. To override such a veto would require a two-thirds vote from both houses of Congress, meaning it would have to be a bipartisan effort.

The Utah senator was part of a bipartisan legislative effort in 2021 to reclaim for Congress “its rightful role as co-equal branch on matters of war and national security.”

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said at the time that Congress had “acquiesced to the growing, often unchecked power of the executive to determine the outline of America’s footpring in the world.”

Should a War Powers resolution such as that proposed by Lee fail, the senator indicated Congress would still have the “option of defunding, but that’s tricky too because spending legislation is also subject to presidential veto.”

Forgot “Fraudulent electoral votes?”…..

GA/FL

ELECTION FRAUD was most certainly NOT Pence’s concern.

Traitor Pence ignored the brazen vote and election fraud and cemented the stolen election – even after he was appointed to handle Election Integrity to make sure election was honest – by President Trump!!

Pence will forever be the scoundrel and crook who allowed the 2020 Election to be stolen from the people of the United States of America – and allowed the stinking perverted freak show crooked Øbama-Biden administration to be installed!!!!

Pence is despicable for this and for his dishonest handling of the planned pandemic. Instead of following the real science (Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, Quercetin, Zinc, D3, Selenium, Budesonide, Cetylpyridium, etc. proven cures for Covid! ) He promoted Fauci killer vaccine and Birx hand-washing, mask-wearing, social distancing medicine show!!!

Aubergine

Seriously, Mike Pence and Benedict Arnold will be on the same page in history books in the not-so-distant future. Mark my words.

I wish somebody would hit him with the question of, if he didn’t have the “right” to send the electoral votes back to the states for correction, why did they CHANGE THE LAW after the election so the VP CAN’T do exactly that?

pgroup2

That’s always a reveal. We have one of those in our legal fight for election records here in WA state. Of course I wrote a whole section on the logic trail and the lawyer put it in one of our briefs.

Aubergine

Yes, but they “changed” the law. They didn’t “add” a law to spell it out. The law already existed.

Aubergine

Here is what the original law is described as. There are embedded references:

The Act aimed to minimize congressional involvement in election disputes, instead placing the primary responsibility to resolve disputes upon the states.[4][5] The Act set out procedures and deadlines for the states to follow in resolving disputes, certifying results, and sending the results to Congress. If a state followed these “safe harbor” standards and the state’s governor properly submitted one set of electoral votes, the Act stated that this “final” determination “shall govern.”[6][7] However, making or use of “any false writing or document” in the implementation of this procedure was a felony punishable by 5 years imprisonment by 18 U.S. Code 1001 under Chapter 47 Fraud and False Statements. The Act thus relegated Congress to resolving only a narrow class of disputes, such as if a governor had certified two different slates of electors or if a state failed to certify its results under the Act’s procedures.[8] Congress could also reject votes under the Act for other specific defects, such as ministerial error, if an elector or candidate was ineligible for office, or if the electoral college votes were not “regularly given.”[8][9]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_Count_Act

Sure looks to me like Pence could legally reject the votes. But what do I know?

I think she really was supposed to say “reduce pollution” instead of “reduce population.” But the word “population” came tripping off her tongue too easily, as if it were something very familiar to her thoughts and speech. It looks like a Freudian slip, a link to her unconscious mind that shows her real motives. Once that happens, it’s impossible to change people’s minds about it.

kalbokalbs

Hoe saying reduce population is akin to Briben, occasionally speaking the unspeakable truths. Steal an election. Nordstream…

Yes. I believe that the people behind the transgender crap not only control who becomes “celebrities”, but then influence them (through many means) to first accept and then believe and then act on the transgender ideology.
