Irreconcilable Differences: California’s GOP Falters From Within

The State of California is a textbook example of what happens when leftist oligarchs, environmentalist extremists, academic socialists, corporatists and crony capitalists, labor unions (mostly in the public sector), ambulance-chasing trial lawyers, and a media best described collectively as negligent, lazy cowards all join hands and decide to loot the middle class. The people being driven out of California are variously described by Democrats as too privileged, too independent, too unsustainable, recalcitrant, troglodytic, superseded, irrelevant, unwanted, and guilty by reason of whiteness. The attitude of California’s upper class towards the people whose hard work built the state is either hurry up and die or get lost and good riddance.

Same thing that happens when any group assuming the mantle of “elite” has reason to keep the non-elite suppressed for fear of overthrow.

MATTHEW 16:13-19

13Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesare’a Philip’pi, he asked his disciples, “Who do men say that the Son of man is?” 14And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Eli’jah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

State appeals court rejects NYC non-citizen voting law

New York appeals court on Wednesday rejected a New York City law permitting non-citizens to vote in local elections on state constitutional grounds.

The city approved the law in 2021, though it did not become official under the following year. Roughly 800,000 people would become eligible to vote for mayor and city council under the plan, which has not taken effect due to legal challenges, Politico reported.

“We determine that this local law was enacted in violation of the New York State Constitution and Municipal Home Rule Law, and thus, must be declared null and void,” Second Judicial Department Associate Justice Paul Wooten of the Supreme Court of the State of New York Appellate Division wrote.

The law had come under challenge from a group of Republicans, including members of the city council, party officials, members of Congress, and other elected officials. The lead plaintiff was Staten Island Borough President Vito Fossella.

The group had alleged that the influx of such a volume of new voters “will dilute the votes of United States citizens” and “cause an abrupt and sizeable change to the makeup of the electorate, which will force the [ ]officeholder [p]laintiffs to change the way that they campaign for office” [sic].

para59r

People have been strongly suggesting that be done. Meanwhile has multiple advantages. Discouragement/Detriment to air travel (they don’t want us flying). Easy to house them. Easy to control, indoctrinate and possibly train. Cabal can shift clandestine invader operatives or masses of invaders about the country without anyone the wiser. When everything starts to go south and the public blue bloods demand something be done, the Bidense will be seen as taking swift action.

Alison

This has been puzzling me. Set aside the ridiculous declarations of sanctuary cities several years ago when they had everything to gain – federal/taxpayer dollars – and little to lose. Now that they are being inundated with illegals, and adequate federal/taxpayer slush funds aren’t flowing, wHY can’t they just rescind their status as a sanctuary city? Surely it was a proclamation, ordinance or regulation (law.) passed. WHY can it not be rescinded????

i’m not asking rhetorically. I ‘get’ the political agenda, but why can’t the citizens demand it be rescinded?

TheseTruths

I haven’t read anything about people using that strategy, and I don’t know why.

Citizens don’t mean squat to our “elites”.

Maybe it’s the part of history that shows that communism ( or whichever -ism) eventually puts the boot on everyone’s neck. “Regular” Dems who loved the sanctuary city idea and now see the folly get to find out that their views don’t matter to pols…the same as ours don’t.

An article about one of the X posts from the open:
WATCH: Mike Benz Explains the Dirty Tricks the Deep State is Using by Framing Trump as a ‘Threat to Democracy’ (VIDEO)

Mike Benz recently did an interview with Tucker Carlson where he did a deep dive into the history of the Deep State and how it affected the 2020 election.

Now he has put out a new video where he explains how the Deep State is being used against Trump in 2024.

It’s disturbing how extensive this network is and how much power they wield.

He starts out with a history of the CIA and how they interfered in elections, then brings that into the context of today.

Real Clear Politics posted a transcript. This is the key part:

“Now we saw this happen in 2020. For example, the Transition Integrity Project, which was this, you know, 65-person, hugely influential group of people. This included Donna Brazile, the former head of the DNC, Michael Steele, the former head of the RNC. So the two most recent heads of both major political parties, as well as about 60-some officials from the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Intelligence community, and then other cluster networks around everything from journalism to champions of industry.

“And they had a role-play simulation about how to overturn the 2020 election. This is in June 2020, five months before the election happened, about how they could overturn the election if Trump won to save democracy and make sure that he would not be able to have a second term.

“This is, they had simulation three. I’ve posted this a million times, but I’ll put it in the thread below. They did four simulations. In simulation number three, John Podesta personally played a role-playing role of Joe Biden. John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and now runs the largest pot of money in the entire federal government, a $370 billion slush fund for energy projects, he personally role-played the role of Joe Biden.

“And what did they do? It was in this role-play. It was dirty tricks.

“The simulation went as follows: If Trump won a clear victory at the electoral college, but had lost the popular vote, they were going to mobilize Black Lives Matter street muscle. They wrote this, mobilize Black Lives Matter street muscle and use their anger to essentially become a pro-Biden, a narco tyranny force that would shut down the country as a color revolution does in Serbia or in Tunisia, or as the CIA organizes abroad.”

…The left was ready to start a violent revolution to overturn the election in 2020 if Trump was declared the winner. They have falsely accused Trump of doing what they were actually planning to do and are even prosecuting him for it.

Alison

This interview was sobering in its succinct, accurate history of how social media censorship came about. Every citizen should listen to this one!

Incompetent mechanics with DEI promoted superiors is basically a slow-creep sabotage. At some point the mistakes happen, then go unnoticed or ignored by quality control ..then it’s critical.

Gail Combs

YUP! DIE. I saw it when I was in industry and it has just gotten worse. You now have entire departments of DIE hires . A friend was working at a manufacturing company. she was the only non-black in the department and their best worker but she (a native American) was fired because she used the ‘wrong word’ Something that was perfectly acceptable and considered ‘polite’ when she and I were growing up.

No discussion, no determination if it was really meant as a ‘racist’ comment, no request to not use the word, just go straight to YOUR FIRED!🙄

I am sure the BLACK supervisor was just itching to fire her too, given the guy she addressed was high on drugs at the time and a horrible worker.

https://www.fox43.com/article/news/regional/pittsburgh-bridge-collapse-cause-forbes-avenue-fern-hollow-creek/521-221fd92 Pics and vid at link

PITTSBURGH — The city of Pittsburgh did not adequately maintain or repair a bridge and failed to act on inspection reports, leading to the corrosion of the structure’s steel legs and its collapse into a ravine, federal investigators said Wednesday.

The city-owned Forbes Avenue bridge fell down on Jan. 28, 2022, plunging a bus and four cars about 100 feet (30 meters) into the Fern Hollow Creek. Another vehicle drove off the east bridge abutment and landed on its roof. There were injuries but no one died.

mollypitcher5

It’s nuts Gail.

A problem is that if inferior parts like the steel , nuts and bolts, etc coupled with possibly an inferior DEI hire that has no concept of WHY that’s necessary…it’s a failure destined to happen sooner or later.

Gail Combs

ALL part of the plan to completely DESTROY the USA.

Lack of quality assurance . Some companies do not think they need it. Quality assurance used to be in Airplane companies until some bean counter felt they could save money. In this case Boeing did it by them selves.

ISO 9000

Quality Types WARNED it would be bad news.

To understand the problem it is necessary to look at the “Quality Revolution.” In the 1970s when I first started working in the quality field, Military. Standard 105D (it became 105E later) was often used to determine incoming inspection levels. Mil Spec 105Dwas a common-sense, statistics-based standard, appropriate to the military sense of getting things done correctly, and it saw wide use in industry. It provided methods to categorize vendors as good, average or below average. The customer could adjust the level of incoming inspection accordingly.

Dr. W. Edwards Deming, a mathematician doing research into quality, had been ignored by US business. He took his expertise to postwar Japan where his methods revolutionized quality. After superior Japanese quality flattened American business in the market place, Americans started searching for the “Magic Wand” that would allow them to compete, Several experts cashed in on this mad search. Joseph Juran, Armand Feigenbaum and Philip Crosby emerged as the leaders of the pack.

In 1987 the methods used by Deming and the other leaders were quantified as a set of quality manufacturing standards called ISO 9000. I was one of the first to get training in ISO 9000 here in the USA. I was impressed by the first half of the presentation and during break started discussing what I had learned with my seat-mate. He was not at all impressed. He was originally from Russia, and he told me that the Soviet Union had used the same kind of system for years, and that and it generated paperwork, not quality. Twenty years later I, along with other quality professionals, agree with him.

…”I’m wondering if there might be a silent majority of Quality [magazine] readers out there on the topic of ISO 9000. The response to my July editorial, “Eliminate ISO 9000?,” was the heaviest that we have received in some time…What surprised me is that the July editorial elicited no ardent rebuttals in defense of ISO 9000…” http://www.qualitymag.com/Articles/Letters_From_the_Editor/65730ee7f4c38010VgnVCM100000f932a8c0

Bean counters, looking only for immediate additional profit, found some of the concepts of ISO 9000 very attractive:

  1. Do not duplicate effort by repeating testing that’s already been done. This means that incoming inspection can be eliminated, saving some labor.
  2. Develop a relationship with a single source instead of wasting resources on qualifying several sources
  3. Use “Just In Time.” Since the source is prequalified, the raw materials can arrive on the same day as needed, eliminating warehouses and jobs.

The third item is particularly interesting. If the method fails, that is, if the supposedly pre-qualified material is no good, there might be no choice but to use it anyway! The result can be anywhere from a minor inconvenience to a total disaster.

FOOD: A version of ISO was developed for the food industry. It was called HACCP and was published as an international standard in 1993 by Codex Alimentarius. In 1995 Mil Std 105E was declared obsolete and in 1996 HACCP was adopted by the USDA.

Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Systems rule, on July 25, 1996: Under the HACCP rule, industry is responsible for assessing potential food safety hazards and systematically preventing and controlling those hazards. FSIS [Food Safety Inspection Service] is responsible for verifying that establishments’ HACCP systems are working ..http://www.fsis.usda.gov/PDF/Evolution_of_RBI_022007.pdf

Notice how this ruling has shifted the focus of audits, both government and private, from testing for contamination to the paperwork documenting the “Quality Management System”. Secondly, rigorous incoming inspection has been drastically cut‒if not eliminated‒by the companies that receive raw materials. In buying raw materials from the vendor today corporations relied only on a third-party auditor who reported on the integrity of the suppler. Twenty or thirty years earlier the corporation would have sent their own quality professional to work at the vendor’s facility.

If the “Quality Revolution” worked so well for the Japanese, why isn’t it working in the USA? There are several reasons. First is the Japanese sense of honor, ethics and integrity. Deceitfulness is frowned upon and results in a loss of face and disgrace to the family.. Secondly, Japan is a small country so word of deceitfulness spreads easily.. In the USA a slick salesmen who lies to get sales is likely to be praised and held up as an example to new salesmen. The US has a very mobile population, there are always new suckers moving into the community . A scoundrel can relocate to any of forty nine other states.

Another problem, according to quality expert Kaoru Ishikawa, is America’s regulations of business that give tremendous importance to each company’s quarterly results. He claims that the result is short-sightedness….

From an Article I wrote long ago.

singingsoul1

Good article thank you for sharing 🙂
My husband worked in quality assurance department in a company . Deming he had his encounter with him several times 🙂

Gail Combs

I got to take a course live long distance. I had the honor of getting Dr Deming to read my comment and say he had never thought about the situation from that angle.

It was about honoring an individual vs a group. If you honor the group and do not mention the individual who did all or most of the work, then you are going to build resentment in that individual who will eventually not bother doing their best.

mollypitcher5

They can refuse but the pilot inspection is mainly exterior visual. They can’t really make any determination of the components holding the thing together.

Gail Combs

However there are mechanics who service the planes who should have caught this.

(I used to cave with one.)

mollypitcher5

Right?
As we’re hearing…exceptional service is racist, it’s a show of white privilege, it’s discriminating to demand competence and attention to detail

All the more reason for senior All pilots to be vigilant in the walk through and around inspection before flight.

Pat,

The problem for them is it will likely BACKFIRE because it squarely impacts those ‘Suburban Women’ who like to fly to …. for vacation or even long weekends.

Remember most of them are oblivious and just give lip service to the radical left ‘Politically Correct’ ideas. NOW those ideas are slapping them up side the head.

No more trips into NYC to go to the museums, or Broadway shows or for a nice night out. It is WAY TOO DANGEROUS, not just in the ‘bad neighborhoods’ but all over thanks to the flood of illegals.

Now your daughter who worked her butt off to be a top ranked athlete is being replaced by a loony male who could easily hurt her.

I hate to say it but phones are a problem. People spend an enormous amount of time on them and it appears to be somewhat addictive. Paying attention to a small task or a very complicated one can impact the quality if the person is constantly distracted

New Trump Ad!

Gail Combs

I think this ‘ad’ was made by an Anon in his ‘basement’ The reason I think this is because:

  • It is over 3 minutes long
  • It does not have the usual ‘Paid For By’ at the end
  • It does not have ‘I Donald J Trump approve this message’

Think about it. Nasty Nikki is paying a TON of money for COMMERCIALS on TV. And as we know alternate media gets more eyeballs than the Fake News.

Trump is getting FREE ads made by Anons that he does not have to pay for. He also gets a LOT of FREE volunteers instead of paid volunteers.

Cuppa Covfefe

I agree… there is something over-the-top and cultic about the video; reminds me of some of the “homages” they’d show at “the creek” in San Jose of L.RonFlubbard…

Deep Fakes, especially with the “AI” craze will be flying thick and fast, I fear…

Wouldn’t be surprised if a TLA were behind the ad, to lay groundwork for discrediting/malign purposes….

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

No One’s Got To Me …I Ain’t Scared of Sh!t ~ NYC Trucker Boycott Leader ‘Chicago Ray’ Steps Down

From the article:

….As of noon Monday, the Freightwaves SONAR platform that tracks inbound and outbound truckload freight tender rejections into and out of New York City shows no reductions in truck traffic. Nevertheless, I am getting some confirmations of truckers and trucking companies that are refusing loads for the city. If those refusals amount to as much as 10% of the usual daily traffic, New Yorkers will experience a massive surge in prices for food, fuel, and other essentials. Chaos will reign in the Big Apple.

So the boycott is not dead yet, 👉unless the Deep State enforcers reach beyond threatening Chicago Ray and begin to threaten individual truckers and trucking companies – and you better believe they will try to do just that.👈

In 2022 👉the Canadian government froze the bank accounts of truckers👈 in the Freedom Convoy who were protesting Canada’s Covid vaccine mandates by using their trucks to block the streets of their capital, Ottawa….

We now know thanks to OMG that the IRS tracks your bank accounts.

Newsweek also reported Chicago Ray said, 
  :wpds_arrow:  “I’m not leading, nor have I encouraged, or am I encouraging anyone to do anything other than what they were doing prior to the ruling on Friday in New York City.”

Does that sound like the way trucker Chicago Ray talks, or does it sound like someone dictating a statement to him?

Chicago Ray also posted,

  :wpds_arrow:  “No one’s got to me … I heard what drivers were saying and I’m hearing some of that today, I ain’t scared of s–t. 

Me.

As posted one up.

Yeah, but HOW MANY CAN DRIVE A BIG RIG?

You are not talking about a group gathered in one area.

 May 1st, 2023: The Truck Driver Shortage – The Dirty Truth No One Talks About (I am just picking and choosing among a lot of facts.)

The truck driver shortage is one of the biggest issues the North American trucking industry faces today.

👉There appears to be a shortage of qualified professional truck drivers because drivers are leaving the industry and searching for jobs that offer better pay, benefits and working conditions.

They’re simply not happy or satisfied with the lifestyle driving a truck for a living provides. And who can fault them for this?

However, we are of the belief that the truck driver shortage is a really a myth.

There are many individuals with the training and skills needed to fill these truck driving job positions.

👉But due to low pay and less than desirable working conditions, many are leaving the industry, in search of a better career.👈

Others are lured into the trucking industry as drivers, thinking they will fill these positions and make a good living for themselves and their families.

👉Once they begin driving, they discover the trucking industry has a history of treating drivers unfairly and paying them low wages…👈

….

I mentioned that Obama screwed over the Truckers by allowing Mexicans to drive loads from Mexico directly to the destination. That cause a glut of drivers and the lowering of pay and the fees paid to transport companies. That move is now coming around to BITE THEM ON THE ASS!

Start threatening drivers and the word will get out and they will WALK! They will have ZERO reason to stay in a low paying shitty job AND there is very little replacements coming down the pike.

ALSO THERE IS INSURANCE! You can not drive long haul for TWO YEARS. You are stuck driving within your state. At least that is what I found when I got my CDL in 2005.

TRUCKING INDUSTRY STATISTICS [2023]

  • Trucks move about 72.5% of America’s freight by weight.
  • There are about 3.5 million employed truck drivers in the U.S. as of 2021.
  • There are 1,102,799 for-hire trucking carriers in the U.S.
  • U.S. trucks moved 10.93 billion tons of freight in 2021.
  • There are 4.06 million semi-trucks operating in the U.S. as of 2021…

👉91.5% of trucking carriers in the U.S. operate with six or fewer trucks.

Grocery stores would go out of stock in just three days if trucks stopped driving.

The majority of truck drivers are white. [72% & 12% are Black]

The majority of truckers are between 45 and 54 years of age.

Age .. Percentage

16-24 …. 8%

25-34 …. 17%

35-44 …. 21%

45-54 …. 26%

55-64 ….. 21%

65 ………..+7%

[Many I have met are retired military or Vets.]

Most trucking companies fail because their costs are higher than their income. 

Often trucking companies encounter high operational costs and struggle to pull in enough customers or high-paying freight to cover those costs, which causes them to fail.

It’s also difficult to lower expenses without losing drivers, as 34% of trucking companies’ costs are their drivers’ paychecks. Drivers have a plethora of options for employment, which means you can’t easily reduce their pay in a significant way without losing them.

The trucking industry is so fragmented because there is a low cost of entry.

 Almost anyone can start their own trucking company, no matter how small, and since it’s vital for companies to get their logistics just right while keeping costs low, it’s difficult for one or two companies to fully take over the market.

In addition, since truck drivers have the power to move from one company to another or to even start their own, drivers spur a significant amount of competition between trucking companies, and that variable isn’t going away anytime soon….

kalbokalbs

I suspect the use of FB, TW, etc. could be used against the truckers “organizing” refusing loads to NY.

Lawful? Nope. But, DOJ, FIB and HLS are NOT constrained by lawful actions. <<<>>> Ask J6ers.

Of course IRS may simply initiate a random audit…

State and local LE could could have a random safety inspection at truck scales…

All that said, I do hope truckers “ignore” loads to NY for safety AND security reasons.

Gail Combs

They really do not have to organize. Ray just did it.

Also You can only drive for MAX of 11 hours. That means you sleep for 8 and twiddle thumbs for five or more. This give drivers time to eat, chat and NOT over the CB. I have had some interesting conversations at truck stops.

HOS rules overview for property-carrying drivers

11-Hour Driving Limit

A driver may drive a maximum of 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty.

14-Hour Limit

A driver may not drive beyond the 14th consecutive hour after coming on duty. The driver can’t resume driving unless they have taken 10 consecutive hours off-duty. Off-duty time does not extend the 14-hour period.

30-Minute Driving Break

Drivers must stop driving if more than 8 hours of driving have passed without at least a consecutive 30-minute interruption of driving. The break (or interruption of driving time) can be satisfied by any non-driving activity or a combination of non-driving activities of 30 consecutive minutes.

10 minutes off-duty + 20 minutes on-duty, not driving = 30 consecutive minutes break

70-Hour Limit (cycle)

A driver may not drive after [ac]cumulating 70 hours on duty in 8 consecutive days. A driver may restart an 8 consecutive day period at any time after taking 34 or more consecutive hours off duty.

With this latest move, I think you are going to see it. Muzzling Trucker Ray comes WAY TOO LATE.

It has already made international news. Also all those truckers are well aware of the farmer/trucker boycotts in the EU and the fact they got the Cabal to back down, at least temporarily.

Feb 19th NY POST — Trump-supporting truckers vow their boycott could ‘shut New York City down’ after $355M fraud ruling
NYC faces complete shutdown as truckers threaten to paralyse state, ‘New Yorkers must stock up’ Hindustan Times
20 February

….several truckers are now refusing to accept loads for New York city. Many have now come out to issue daring threat that their protest will paralyse New York.

“We’re gonna stand for something man. We’re gonna stand for Trump, man,” one trucker said. “What I’m hearing over here, this is on man, this is on.”

“It could shut New York City down,” said Jennifer Hernandez, a trucker told News Nation. “If New York loses just 10% of the trucks that go in there, their prices are going to skyrocket on everything — from milk to eggs, to any type of goods that the consumer needs,”

“Delayed Fatal Pulmonary Hemorrhage Following COVID-19 Vaccination: Case REPORT, Batch Analysis, and Proposed Autopsy Checklist”
Nicolas Hulscher and Peter A. McCullough
published 20 February 2024
Yours Truly: The unfortunate patient died 555 days AFTER he took the SECOND dose of the original “two-dose series” of the “flagship” Pfizer-BioNTech modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2. The coroner listed the cause of death as HYPERTENSIVE CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE and to what used to be called “hardening of the arteries” (ATHEROSCLEROTIC CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE) — EVEN THOUGH THE DECEASED HAD NO PRIOR HISTORY OF HEART ISSUES AND THAT HIS LUNGS WERE FOUND TO BE HEMORRHAGED OUT PER THE AUTOPSY. HE ALSO TESTED NEGATIVE FOR COVID-19 INFECTION AFTER HOSPITAL ADMISSION.
Also, the autopsy DID NOT TEST FOR THE PRESENCE OF COVID-19 “VACCINE” SPIKE PROTEIN OR ANTIBODIES IN THE DECEASED.
It was only AFTER Mr. Hulscher and Dr. McCullough traced the BATCH of BNT162b2 that the deceased took that they discovered the batch to be one of the “hot” or “bad” batches. (https://howbad.info)

Whether Trump wins on appeal or at SCOTUS, the precedent has been set. A wall has been broken and there are no take backs. Any company can now be targeted and have their assets seized at the whim of an over zealous AG or politicians. I don’t expect you to know or understand standard CRE practices, but every company below could be found guilty of the exact same actions the Trump Organization was accused of and found guilty, because it is NOT a crime.

They didn’t just shoot themselves in the foot to get Donald Trump, they fatally shot themselves in the head. Before long, they’ll be begging the feds for a bailout. And they better not get one.

Wow that link you posted gave this…

“My partners and I have been lifetime data scientists. We own the digital ID of every mobile device/computer in the U.S. and have indexed and archived every IP address in the world. Our extensive experience in big and deep data, including geotracking and geolocation makes our dozens of data companies the top authority for providing data to corporations, law enforcement and U.S. government agencies like the CIA, NSA, DoD, DIA, NGA, NRO, FBI, as well as Interpol and foreign intelligence organizations. There are a number of videos documenting these ghost buses as well as a number of mostly nondescript DOJ vans that dropped off ninja wearing individuals that appear in other videos to have breached the Capitol cutting fencing, removing barricades, opening doors, and other nefarious behaviors. We also tracked the infamous J6 ‘pipe bomber’ from one of these vans. Later, we eventually tracked them to a Virginia Metro station where a perfect capture of their vehicle license plate was made. The FBI has ALL of this information. Shortly after they were alerted, however, AT&T mysteriously ‘accidentally’ corrupted that and only that particular cell phone user’s data. Additionally, their mobile device was used hundreds of times before and after J6 accessing keycard required DOJ/FBI parking garages and buildings.”

I think Gateway Pundit or Ivan Raiklin had that info too. I can not remember which — getting to info over load!

They cannot “OWN” the digital ID of anyone except themselves…

That unwarranted hubris tempers whatever else they have to say… also, IP addresses and ownerships change over time, so they would have to constantly revise their databases; which in this age of IoT and the IPv6 address space would take resources that only a government agency or a company the likes of Google could marshal…

Typical Cabal trick. I have thought the ANTIFA riots and now this is to allow foreign investors to scoop up US real estate at LESS than a penny on the dollar.

mollypitcher5

Maybe not even foreign investors. The Govt can take the real estate and use it for more illegal housing with luxury penthouses for the worthy …but it’s not going to take too many years for NYC to deteriorate into a broken wasteland.
How would foreign investors make money. Tourism will fail. Business will flee.

They installed a DemonRat to RUN the Trump business (read properties) for the three years.

I have no doubt they will install illegals who will completely trash the properties.

They have no incentive to preserve any Trump holding they get their hands on. This is symbolic whipping post f*ckery.

He also has us to back him up.

Trump received about 74 million votes in the 2020 presidential election and we know that is a LOW number.

If we all tossed $25 bucks into the pot we could pay the ‘fine’

That is why I was asking PGroup about the legality of raising the money to pay the fine.

However the big problem is having a DemonRat run the business for three years.

Agree. ^^^ Quite intentional, at least their hope.

However, bigger problem for NYC, than simple real estate being purchased, pennies on the dollar. Which was my focus.

They really are in a terrible position esp when Trump gets into office.

This very STUPID move accelerates the ‘Escape from NY’ and there goes the tax base just as the state ‘dependents’ aka Illegals increase.

Ron DeSantis is not very smart, I don’t think. From this article today, two quotes. First:

“In a press conference in Orlando, DeSantis shared that his office reached out to AT&T and asked the company what caused the outages.

In response, a spokesperson for AT&T said they “don’t necessarily know what caused the outage.”

Governor DeSantis then speculated, “Imagine if we had an EMP attack. What would end up happening to this country?””

Then:

““Imagine if we had an EMP attack what would end up happening in this country. So it’s not necessarily a good thought because you think you’re just so naturally reliant on having cell service,” DeSantis said.

“If you’re in the car, you need to figure out where you’re going to go. All this other stuff. So it’s a little bit jarring to think about the implications of something like that (if it) happened on a much grander scale.””

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2024/02/ron-desantis-warns-possible-emp-strikes-as-att/

Um, Rob, I hate to break it to you, but if we get hit with an EMP, there ain’t gonna be no cars.

Well, maybe a few 57 Chevys or 65 Ford trucks. But generally, no cars. No electricity, either.

TheseTruths

Successful journey…👍🏼

cthulhu

Well, my trip home was a bit more exciting than planned.

I walked there fine, got there an hour early, took my Xanax, got over-hydrated. Did the blood draw, thought I’d stop off at the mall on the way home and get some lunch. Got inside the mall, and started feeling like maybe I should visit a restroom.

Then, this started being more than a feeling, and a bit like an imperative. I checked the mall map, and many of the convenient ones were closed — so I made a beeline to an available one. At this point, I was having cramps.

Shortly thereafter, someone transcribing a telephone call made a small error writing down a vowel, which lead to me being confronted at gunpoint and handcuffed. What they wrote was, “there is a guy who is about to shoot himself in the bathroom.”

The more accurate version would have been, “there is a guy who is about to shit himself in the bathroom.”

By the time the San Jose Police Department arrived, the immediate crisis was passed….but I had some cleaning-up to do. I had some relevant supplies at hand, and was cleaning, when a muffled voice from around the corner said something about, “person in men’s room, we have guns.”

It took enough time to sort things out that I had the Fiancee come and get me, and I am only now getting the laundry all done.

That said, it was the second worst thing to happen to me today — with the blood draw as #1.

mollypitcher5

Damn Coothie…your day was wild. I’m glad FOR you that you made it home!

I’m actually thankful about some of the details. For example, when they went to cuff me, they moved my right shoulder and I said, “ow!!! that shoulder’s hosed — rotator cuff” and they were actually careful not to reinjure it. I think they did a cuff to a cuff to give it enough slack.

gil00

This is a very strange part of her story.

https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/4481433-cbs-faces-uproar-after-seizing-investigative-journalists-files/

There is trouble brewing at Black Rock, the headquarters of CBS, after the firing of Catherine Herridge, an acclaimed investigative reporter. Many of us were shocked after Herridge was included in layoffs this month, but those concerns have increased after CBS officials took the unusual step of seizing her files, computers and records, including information on privileged sources.

The position of CBS has alarmed many, including the union, as an attack on free press principles by one of the nation’s most esteemed press organizations.
I have spoken confidentially with current and former CBS employees who have stated that they could not recall the company ever taking such a step before. One former CBS journalist said that many employees “are confused why [Herridge] was laid off, as one of the correspondents who broke news regularly and did a lot of original reporting.”
That has led to concerns about the source of the pressure. He added that he had never seen a seizure of records from a departing journalist, and that the move had sent a “chilling signal” in the ranks of CBS.
A former CBS manager, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said that he had “never heard of anything like this.”

Remember that thread that got posted yesterday, about how in Sep 2019, some anon on 4-chan outed the Covid pandemic?

Remember Catherine Herridge saying this about a “black swan” event in 2024:

Now today:

“There is trouble brewing at Black Rock, the headquarters of CBS, after the firing of Catherine Herridge, an acclaimed investigative reporter. Many of us were shocked after Herridge was included in layoffs this month, but those concerns have increased after CBS officials took the unusual step of seizing her files, computers and records, including information on privileged sources.

https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/4481433-cbs-faces-uproar-after-seizing-investigative-journalists-files/

You wanna know what I think?

One of Herridge’s sources warned her, she warned us, and the Biden admin’s goon-squad wants to know WHO it was.

They knew in advance that they were going to pull Covid on us. They know now what they are planning to do. But they sure as hell don’t want US to be prepared to face it.

TheseTruths

That seems very plausible.

In the Herridge video she gives a very obvious wink at the 10-second mark as she is saying, “There are a number of concerns I have that factor into that” (high-impact national security event).

Maybe she wasn’t intentionally winking and something was in her eye…

Exclusive: One-on-One with Kash Patel on the Missing Trump Binder – Where Did it Go? Who Has It? – Plus the Latest on the Russiagate Investigation, Gina Haspel, Biden’s Classified Documents, and More with TGP’s Jim Hoft
This is the part about the binder, emphasis mine:

The mysterious Trump binder:

Kash Patel:  [Lawyer Pat] Cipollone and Barr and Rosenstein and others blocked the release of this binder, yelling the same falsehoods about national security and sources are going to die. Did Christopher Steele ever die? No. Did Rosenstein and Haspell and Barr and Comey and McCabe, were they ever harmed in any way? No, because there’s a smart way to release this information, which we did, and we showed them how to do it. And they were terrified that if we release the rest, you guys are going to see a lot of the underlying information that you’ve been (TGP) reporting on so brilliantly. You’re going to be like, oh, my God, this is worse than we thought!

Jim Hoft:  With this binder, this was a lot of the documents that you dug up, you and Devon Nunes and you had collected over the years. And who put this binder together then?

Kash Patel:  I think it was a collaboration. I know then chief of staff Mark Meadows with people who just kind of knew what we should be looking for… And it’s the presidential prerogative to say, hey, if these documents are classified just to cover up corruption, let’s get them out there. And that’s what we felt. It’s just surprising to me that these deep state actors who swear they play by the law, had a Commander-in-Chief declassify these documents. And this DOJ under Joe Biden is the one withholding the release of that binder…

…Look, it’s not a mystery, in my opinion, where that binder is. It’s been publicly reported that NARA, the librarians that launched the bogus Trump classified document case, and protected Hillary Clinton, they said that the binder was handed over to DOJ. Where is it? Why hasn’t it been released? Oh, we have to review for it for personal identifiable information. Okay, so redact people’s private names. Great. No problem. Take out their addresses and phone number. Great. I’m all for that.

Jim Hoft:  Didn’t President Trump, too? We posted a document a couple of days ago that shows before he left office he signed to release the binder. He actually mentions the binder in his statement. And he mentions the binder several times, and he says, redact what you need. But he wanted it released. That’s an order from the president, isn’t it? I mean… He’s telling them to do this, and they never did it.

Kash Patel: Pat Cipollone. Go ask him. He was White House Counsel. He didn’t do it. Him and Gina prevented the release of the ICA Report – prevented the release of this binder. And it’s my understanding of the law. Maybe I’m wrong, but the president is the ultimate arbiter of classification. If he says something’s declassified, that’s it. There’s no paperwork that has to follow in order to make it valid. He said it. That’s how it works…

The order was issued and the chain of command wasn’t followed. And that’s why guys like Cipollone and others, I think, are so damaging to the institutions. They covered up for these deep state operatives, because yet again, they wanted to protect the institutions. Look, Bill Barr had every opportunity as the Attorney General to put this information out there, every single one… He was told where it was and what it was and he sat around and didn’t release the information … he never released it. So he’s at fault, too, because he wanted to protect the institution of DOJ and its grandiosity. But in reality, guys like him are the ones that are destroying America’s faith in those very institutions.

Jim Hoft: I want to reiterate one thing that you said, this binder is really documents that Kash Patel and some others put together . And that was so it was all in one place, I suppose. So that all this information is there and that’s the binder that Trump is talking about. But it’s really, I can say this, this is the Kash Patel binder.

Kash Patel:I personally don’t think that Donald Trump ever took it because per NARA that’s been reported publicly. It went to DOJ. So how could he have taken it if DOJ has had it for these three years and if DOJ has had it and that FBI used it as a justification to raid Mar-a-Lago. It was a false justification when they could have just called their boss, the attorney general, and said, hey, here’s the binder, it’s with us in Washington, DC.

Some possible scenarios:
• As some people believe, Trump has the binder, the DOJ knows he has it, and they were looking for it at Mar-a-Lago but of course wouldn’t admit it.
• As Kash says, Trump does not have the binder. If the DOJ has it, then it couldn’t have been the reason for the raid on Mar-a-Lago.
• Trump has the binder and Kash doesn’t know it. If Trump has it, I imagine very few people would know that.
• Trump has the binder, Kash knows it or strongly suspects it, and he is being “coy” to set the enemy on the wrong path.
• Trump really does not have the binder and believes the DOJ has it. If Trump doesn’t have it, how can he use it or get it strategically released?
• The DOJ has the binder and Trump also has a copy, and it’s a cat-and-mouse game. The legal prosecutions are about keeping Trump out of office and also to keep him from releasing the information in the binder. But couldn’t he release it anyway, even from jail?

Hope it’s the last scenario, #6.

I certainly hope Trump has the binder!

Gail Combs

I think you can bet on it!

kalbokalbs

My bet. Trump has a copy of whatever was / is the binder. Prolly multiple copies. Hard copy and soft. At most, only one other person knows, where the copies are.

(Stuff in the binder IS unclassified. So making a copy is, NBFD.

Could he have as they say a dead man’s switch on it ?
Other’s have supposedly had them, would they doubt PDJT? He plays for keeps and they know it.

My bet: PDJT has the original and a “copy” was provided to DOJ and/or NAR. Frankly, for me, this is what they fear the most.

Oh, and … “We have it all.”  😎

Yes. Its California.

An Orange County federal judge has dismissed criminal charges for the second time in five years against accused members of a Southern California white supremacist group suspected of inciting brawls at political rallies throughout the state.
U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney on Wednesday dismissed charges against Robert Rundo — who was extradited from Romania last year — and Robert Boman of Torrance. The two were charged with conspiracy to violate the Anti-Riot Act and rioting.
Rundo is alleged to be a founding member of Rise Above Movement, or RAM, a white supremacist group that, according to a federal indictment, touted itself as a “combat-ready, militant group of a new nationalist white supremacy and identity movement.” Boman was also an alleged member of the group.
In his decision, Carney granted the defendants’ motion to dismiss, agreeing that Rundo and Boman were being selectively prosecuted, while “far-left extremist groups, such as Antifa” were not.
“Prosecuting only members of the far right and ignoring members of the far left leads to the troubling conclusion that the government believes it is permissible to physically assault and injure Trump supporters to silence speech,” Carney wrote in his order.

BREAKING: Iran is providing Russia with hundreds of short to medium range ballistic missiles – Reuters

Iran’s provision of around 400 missiles includes many from the Fateh-110 family of medium-range ballistic missiles with pinpoint accuracy, such as the Zolfaghar.

According to Reuters, Iranian shipments to Russia began in early January, and will continue and intensify in the coming weeks.

The Fateh-110 road-mobile missile family features ranges from 300km to 700km, an ideal range for operational use in Ukraine.”

Jonathan Turley (emphasis mine):
“Nothing Succeeds Like Excess”: New York’s Perverse Incentive in Pricing Trump Out of an Appeal

Oscar Wilde wrote that “moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.” Justice Arthur Engoron took that line to heart with his absurd imposition of $455 million in fines and interest against Donald Trump and his corporation…

Much of the criticism of the decision focused on the unprecedented use of the law and the excessive size of the fine. The New York statute has been on the books for decades and has always been something of an anomaly in not requiring an actual victim or loss to justify disgorgement or fines.

Even the New York Times agreed that it could not find a single case in history where this statute was used against an individual or a company that did not commit a criminal offense, go bankrupt, or leave financial victims.

Engoron then combined that unprecedented application with an equally extraordinary penalty, which is greater than the gross national product of some countries.

He disgorged hundreds of millions in a case where not one dollar was lost by anyone. Indeed, the “victims” wanted to get more business from Trump and are now being prevented from doing so by Engoron.

There is also an added inequity to Engoron’s decision.

Under New York law, Trump cannot appeal this ruling without depositing the full amount, including interest, in a court account. Even for Trump, $455 million is hard to come by. Likewise, a bond would require a company to guarantee payment for a defendant who has been barred from doing business in New York and is facing the need to liquidate much of his portfolio.

Nothing succeeds like excess for judges like Engoron. By imposing this astronomical figure, he can make it difficult or impossible for a defendant to appeal, absent declaring bankruptcy or selling off assets at distress prices.

The excessive fine and its basis raise serious statutory and constitutional questions. Many of us believe it should be substantially reduced or tossed out entirely.

First, however, Trump must come up with almost half a billion dollars to park with the court. Even with a bond, the high costs of securing a guarantor could come at a premium. It would cost a fortune to the bond holder just to carry the risk even if Trump prevails on appeal.

The combination of the draconian fine and the threshold deposit for appeal has produced a shudder throughout the New York business community. The city is already experiencing an exodus of businesses and individuals from the top tax brackets. Rising crime, taxes, and eat-the-rich politics have made New York a hostile environment for businesses. At a time with rising costs from undocumented migrants, even Mayor Eric Adams is alarmed about the loss of his high earners.

…New York Gov. Kathy Hochul has rushed to assure businesses that there is “nothing to worry about” after the corporate public execution of Trump and his company.

But the best that politicians like Hochul and Adams can offer is that you have nothing to fear from confiscatory actions unless you are Trump in New York.

Which is precisely why this decision should be overturned.

What is clear is that this case would never have been brought, let alone result in this massive fine, except for politics.

For example, if you are the NRA, James will seek your destruction for financial irregularities, but if you are Black Lives Matter or Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, there is little real risk in such controversies.

If the only protection in New York is the discretion of figures like James, few businesses would relish the future. The message is that you can expect blind and equal justice so long as you don’t run afoul of the Democrats in power.

If you are unpopular, you could be looking at not only unprecedented actions and fines, but a need to virtually liquidate your assets just to be able to appeal a decision.

This should shock the conscience of anyone concerned about the integrity and fairness of the New York legal system. Confiscatory fines and required deposits leave not just defendants but the entire system bankrupt.

Seems to me that SCOTUS could (should) take this up using the 8th ammendment.

In part: The Eighth Amendment prohibits certain types of punishment: excessive bail, excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments.

TheseTruths

Yes, and take the case before Trump is required to pay that excessive fine. I don’t know the legal ins and outs of how that would work, but Trump’s lawyer Alina Habba said we would learn all when they release the appeal they’re working on.

August 2023 Multiple possible shark sightings at New York beaches Tuesday, a day following apparent shark attack

Officials say there have been three possible shark sightings in Long Island and one confirmed shark sighting in Queens throughout Tuesday morning and early afternoon, a day after a woman was hospitalized due to an apparent shark bite…

The woman was standing in the water when she “felt a sharp pain to her lower left leg, causing her to fall backwards into the water,” the New York Police Department said….

Monday’s incident also appears to be one of the latest in a spate of summer shark bites off New York’s coastline…

Apparently there will be an attempted Moon landing in about ONE hour from now:

The first U.S. moon landing in decades could happen today. What to know and how to watch

“Intuitive Machines’ Odysseus spacecraft was launched on Feb. 15 aboard a SpaceX rocket.

More than 50 years after NASA closed out the Apollo program, a Texas company could land the first commercial U.S. spacecraft on the moon on Thursday, assuming everything goes as planned.

Intuitive Machines launched its Odysseus lunar lander last week aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, beginning an eight-day voyage to the moon. The lander is part of a NASA program dedicated to jumpstarting the so-called lunar economy. This endeavor led the agency to pay Intuitive $118 million to put its experiments on the moon.

Controllers will lower the Odysseus’s orbit from just under 60 miles to six miles, before aiming to land about 190 miles from the moon’s south pole at roughly 6:24 p.m. ET. Notably, the spacecraft is aiming for a region home to craters trapped in perpetual shadows, which are believed to house water ice.

The complicated task will be livestreamed by both NASA on YouTube and Intuitive on its website.

Flight controllers raised Odysseus’s orbit through a “correction maneuver” on Wednesday night, pushing the spacecraft’s expected landing attempt an hour ahead of previous estimates. The simultaneous livestreams will begin at 5:00 p.m. ET, according to Intuitive.”
