Per the Boss:

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

ACTS 3:1-10

1Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at that gate of the temple which is called Beautiful to ask alms of those who entered the temple. 3Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked for alms. 4And Peter directed his gaze at him, with John, and said, “Look at us.” 5And he fixed his attention upon them, expecting to receive something from them. 6But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but I give you what I have; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 7And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8And leaping up he stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10and recognized him as the one who sat for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

cthulhu

Thank you, De Pat, for a watery Wednesday post with invisible camels.

cthulhu

Isn’t he then a step grandnephew?

cthulhu

It’s very nice, and I can tell that the computer is doing its best to find the water-camels pictured in its search bar.

cthulhu

Just as a random thought…..people generally know that many English words have Greek or Latin roots, but things get complicated beyond that.

Ancient Mesopotamia was the land between (Meso-) the rivers (potamia), specifically the Tigris and Euphrates, in modern-day Iraq. The Greeks would race horses in the Hippodrome (Hippo- = horse, drome = venue). Airplanes would take off and land at an aerodrome. Accordingly, a hippopotamus is a horse of the river.

But, wait, weren’t horses “equus”, as in “equestrian”? No, that’s Latin — and, to make things worse, it’s “nice” Latin, that got run over by “gutter Latin” in all the romance languages — a horse in Spanish is caballo, in French cheval, in Italian cavallo, in Romanian cal — all of which come from the Latin caballus….a pack-horse or nag.

cthulhu

To continue the amusement, “caballero” in Spanish and “chevalier” in French both mean “horseman”, but also indicate a certain elevated status….despite both being associated with nags.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That likely goes all the way back to Rome. The class right below the senatorial class was the equestrian class, people wealthy enough to be prepared to fight on horseback.

cthulhu

Yes, but they were riding “equus” horses, and not “caballus” horses. Out in the provinces, locals put on airs as if they were equestrians, when they were only chevaliers or caballeros.

cthulhu

It was enough of a scandal when Caligula intended to elevate Incitatus….just imagine how much worse it would have been to elevate a caballus from Gaul.

Bill Gates Sponsoring Lessons in How to Cleanse Math of ‘White Supremacy’
Guest Contributor Apr. 2, 2024 5:20 pm 752 Comments

…And the Examiners notes that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation “is the only donor listed on a website for a group dedicated to eliminating racism from the nation’s math curriculum, which would be accomplished, in part, by eliminating the need for students to show their work after solving a math problem.

Condemned in the lessons are the “focus” that insists students get the “right” answer and requiring students to “show their work.”

“White supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms in everyday teacher actions,” the lessons charge. “Coupled with the beliefs that underlie these actions, they perpetuate educational harm on black, Latinx, and multilingual students, denying them full access to the world of mathematics.”

The lessons inform faculty, “Antiracist math educators deconstruct the ways they have been taught math to learn and teach math differently.”

Subtopics include “ethnomathematics,” “thoughtful scaffolding” and having students “reclaim their mathematical ancestry.”

Also important, it explains, is using math as “resistance,” and that includes teaching “students of color” to “disrupt the disproportionate push-out of people of color” in math and STEM fields.

Rep. Lauren Boebert undergoes surgery after discovery of ‘acute blood clot,’ her campaign says

GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado underwent surgery after “severe swelling” in one of her legs led to the discovery of “an acute blood clot” and a diagnosis of May-Thurner syndrome, according to a statement by the lawmaker’s campaign posted on Facebook.

“Yesterday afternoon, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert was admitted to UCHealth Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland after experiencing severe swelling in her upper left leg. After undergoing a CT Scan, doctors found an acute blood clot and diagnosed her with May-Thurner Syndrome,” the statement explains.

“Doctors recommended and scheduled a surgery, which was successfully completed this morning, to remove the clot and insert a stent that will address the Congresswoman’s symptoms. After taking time to rest as recommended by doctors, she is expected to make a full recovery with no significant concerns for her long-term health and no hindrance to her ability to perform her duties as a Congresswoman,” the statement notes.

Boebert, who represents Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, is pursuing election to the state’s 4th Congressional District during the 2024 election cycle.

“We successfully performed surgery on the Congresswoman this morning and expect her to make a full recovery,” Dr. Rebecca Bade noted, according to the congresswoman’s campaign. “Patients with May-Thurner Syndrome who undergo the procedure to restore blood flow are able to live and work just as they have in the past after a brief recovery.”

TheseTruths

I researched May-Thurner syndrome and encountered this nonsense:

Some people assigned female at birth with May-Thurner syndrome may also develop pelvic congestion syndrome. 

May-Thurner syndrome is slightly more common in women and people assigned female at birth.

I’m supposed to trust people who think we can be “assigned” a gender at birth with my health? I instantly feel smarter than they are even though I don’t have a medical degree. IMO this is jaw-dropping idiocy.

PAVACA

Unless proven otherwise, if Rep. Boebert ever took ANY COVID-19 “vaccine”, she may well have COVID-19 “vaccine”-induced Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), of which May-Thurmer Syndrome is part. Even if Rep. Boebert HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN diagnosed with a venous condition PRIOR to her getting “vaccinated”, the ingredients and mechanisms of ANY COVID-19 “vaccine” she may have taken, can aggravate any such underlying condition.

“Deep vein thrombosis” and “Venous thrombosis limb” are only TWO of the multiple forms of blood clot disorders that are induced by the COVID-19 “vaccines.”

Please refer to the Appendix 1. Adverse Events of Special interest section at the end of the report that Pfizer-BioNTech gave to the FDA on 30 April 2021 regarding the negative effects that the company’s “flagship” COVID-19 modRNA “vaccine”, BNT162b2, have on people who take this “vaccine.” A link to the report is below.

Bear in mind that ALL modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” by PfizerBioNTech and by Moderna, INCLUDING their current “2023-2024 Formula COVID-19 Vaccine” products, CONTAIN THE ELEMENTS OF THE ORIGINAL modRNA COVID-19 “VACCINES” BY THESE COMPANIES. ANY modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine” labeled as “newest version” or “new formula”, if it contains ANY elements of the original modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine,” is NOT “safe and effective” or “safer and more effective.” ANY modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine” is dangerous.

The Badlands news brief includes a real gem:

“We strongly condemn this atrocious terrorist attack that targeted the Iranian consulate building in Damascus and killed a number of innocents,” said Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad who was seen at the site along with Syria’s interior minister.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said in a statement that seven Iranian military advisers died in the strike including Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a senior commander in its Quds Force, which is an elite foreign espionage and paramilitary arm.

According to Hamas, each Israeli hostage is worth twenty convicted terrorists. So, blowing seven Iranian military advisers to hell should be worth 140 civilians of collateral damage, right? I doubt the Israelis even had 1/5 of that.

It puts me in mind of a song by The Police….

cthulhu

According to https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/iranian-embassy-syria-targeted-large-israeli-airstrikes-major-escalation , there were a total of 11 casualties. Seven were Iranian military advisers according to Badlands. That puts an upper bound on the number of “innocents” at four.

Losers.

If you’re standing around within 25 feet of legitimate military targets, you are an idiot. The smart move would be to make tracks to get as far away as possible before the booms start. This looks like an exemplary good shot by the Israelis.

scott467

cthulhu

Much of this is that cars are lasting longer. In the 1970s, it wasn’t unusual for a car to be pretty much shot at 100,000 miles.

scott467

I don’t suspect that most people who have the means to afford a new car are holding onto their current car until after it hits well over 100k miles.

I suspect this is yet another sign of the economic distress in America that is being 100% ignored and papered over with narrative by MSM and the criminal government with their bogus official statistics.

I’m holding on to my 1994 car with over a quarter-million miles. It doesn’t spy on me, it has no black box, and I pretty much understand how all its parts operate.

Economic distress one aspect. Always is. Perhaps a BFD these days.

A major reason is better vehicles.

kalbokalbs

For all the trash talking about American vehicles, or wherever the vehicle is put together, better vehicles.

Can’t recall when new car warranties went from 1 YR / 10K miles to 3/36. Drive train 100K with some vehicles.

  • This in itself speak volumes.

People might also be confused about the proclamations that everyone will be required to only use or buy EVs by 2030. If they’re taking that as a real inevitability why bother to buy a gas powered car now.

scott467

“If they’re taking that as a real inevitability why bother to buy a gas powered car now.”

______________

Why now?

If I thought it was a real inevitability, and had the means, I would buy three new cars, and put at least two of them in storage (probably all Corvettes, it’s the only car I’m sure I would still like, no matter if I was living in 1953 or 2033 😁 )

Gotta stock up, if things you like are going out of production!

I have enough incandescent light bulbs to last me until the LED insanity stops… which better end with DJT.

mollypitcher5

hahah…I like the way you think. ( me with the light bulb stash too, stocked up on sugar the other day after the bridge crash)

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I have a shitload of incandescents.

Actually I don’t mind LEDs but there are some jobs they cannot do. For instance coin grading must be done under 100W incandescents.

Someone was telling me the other day incandescents were going for $50 a pop due to scarcity, and I thought “I’m rich!!!” but it turns out that there are plenty available from non-ripoff sources.

pgroup2

Severe duty bulbs [used for auto garages, etc.] are incandescent. Available in Home Depot and WallyWorld.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Without looking, I’d expect anything with a name like that to be expensive (and if they’re not lots of people would buy them and use them elsewhere, which must not happen according to “them”).

pgroup2

I doubt that people that don’t work in garages and similar environments even know about them. Yes they are more expensive because they are made sturdier.

kalbokalbs

Incandescent AND CFL commonly available at Estate Sales.

pgroup2

CFL are not appropriate for such work environments. The danger of breakage is too risky.

kalbokalbs

Understand.

Only pointing out Estate Sales have all types of bulbs, as old fart pack rats check out.

“…I have a shitload of incandescents…..”

I had that fight with Hubby and LOST. So we are stuck with LEDs except in the bedroom.

When Will the Planets Align | Planet Alignment, April 4, 2024 | Planetary Alignment | Star Walk

April 8: planetary alignment during the total solar eclipse

If you’re in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico, get ready for an amazing sky show on April 8, 2024. On that day, there will be a total solar eclipse, which is a big deal in itself. But there’s more – when it gets dark during the day, you’ll also see all the planets aligned in the sky! Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, and Uranus will be lined up along with the eclipsed Sun. In addition, there’s also a chance that you can see comet 12P/Pons-Brooks nearby with your own eyes! This will be one of the biggest celestial events of 2024, so don’t miss it!

comment image

Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, and Uranus in a full planetary alignment during the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, as seen from Arkansas, USA. The image is based on data from the Sky Tonight app.©

Vito Technology, Inc.

Note that the largest and brightest planets (Mars, Saturn, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter) can be seen without any tools. But the others are trickier to spot and require at least binoculars – just be super careful not to look at the Sun, or you will damage your eyes. In any case, seeing at least five planets together with the eclipsed Sun and a bright comet is already pretty awesome!

To find out if the total solar eclipse will be visible from your location, open Sky Tonight, find the eclipse in the calendar, and tap on it for more information. If you’re not in the path of totality, don’t worry! You will still be able to see the planetary alignments on April 4 and April 20.

What is a planetary alignment?

Here are two common definitions of a planetary alignment:

  1. An astronomical event when planets gather closely on one side of the Sun at the same time, as seen from above the Solar System.

Some people think the Solar System planets can form a straight line as viewed from the Sun. However, the planets cannot achieve full alignment in three dimensions. Even a looser grouping in one quadrant (a 90-degree sector) is extremely rare: all planets gather in one quadrant only 7 times in the current millennium.

  1. A visual phenomenon when the planets appear close together in a small sky sector, as seen from the Earth.

When the Earth is one of the planets gathered on one side of the Sun, it appears to the observer that several planets are aligned in the sky. The smaller the sector in which the planets are seen, the more spectacular the alignment.

To Steve — while I’m sure you’ll have lenses to capture the sun and moon at totality, it would be awesome if you had a wider lens that could capture an image like the one pictured.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’d want to know the total degree spread. But this does look like a job for a full frame camera. I took my sun pictures the other day with a crop camera; narrower field of view AND a higher pixel density. I have a lens that will cover half of the sky if needed.

Being able to use a different camera will be a bonus, no need to swap lenses. (It’s bad enough I will have to unscrew the 20 stop filter for totality, then screw it back on.)

And of course this is predicated on good weather.

Okay, might back that up. The site will see what you see from your location, so if your not in the totality area you likely won’t see it. Not sure how to switch locations without signing up.

How is this an alignment?

They’re strung out along the ecliptic.

They’re ALWAYS strung out along the ecliptic.

Granted they’re vaguely in the same direction as seen from Earth…mostly other side of the Sun.

In the disbarment trial of Trump’s former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, VoterGA’s Garland Favorito is going over his audit of the Fulton County election.
His audit – 60% error rate – results did not match ballot images.
Tally sheet totals didn’t match the ballot images.
Found falsified tally sheets – 100 to nothing for Biden. Some were 200 to nothing, a technical impossibility. Whereas the ballot images showed a 60-40 ratio of Biden to Trump.
voterga.org/wp-content/upl…
They found 200k duplicate scanned ballots, but ongoing research has bumped that number up to 375k.
The hand audit count was short – 17k votes had no ballot images. Dr. Spock confirmed that in the Raffensperger case, called them Cast Vote Records.
A ballot image is necessary to create a CVR. It’s not possible to have more votes than ballot images. It’s like creating votes out of thin air.

@realDonaldTrump
Governor Jim Pillen of Nebraska, a very smart and popular Governor, who has done some really great things, came out today with a very strong letter in support of returning Nebraska’s Electoral Votes to a Winner-Take-All System. Most Nebraskans have wanted to go back to this system for a very long time, because it’s what 48 other States do – It’s what the Founders intended, and it’s right for Nebraska. Thank you Governor for your bold leadership. Let’s hope the Senate does the right thing. Nebraskans, respectfully ask your Senators to support this Great Bill!

It’s what the Founders intended,

No it’s not.

The founders intended for a bunch of disinterested electors to meet at each state capitol and discuss things and cast their ballots.

Instead we get this situation where the voters choose a slate of pre-committed electors who then essentially engage in a dog and pony show of casting their ballots the way that was foreordained in November.

pgroup2

If they were disinterested, why would they participate at all?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Good point, that’s the wrong word.

I meant that they were expected to be uncommitted, to the point where they could discuss the issue amongst themselves rather than go in with a partisan loyalty to a candidate of a certain party, and maybe change each others’ minds. There was no expectation of unanimity even within a state’s electors.

Obviously that fell by the wayside when parties formed. Something the founders didn’t intend.

pgroup2

The Framers were very skittish about political parties. The constitution was written without parties in mind. To my way of thinking, forcing a voter to vote for a VP just because that person is a member of the same party as a POTUS candidate is unconstitutional.

But that is one side effect of political parties in federal elections.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Unfortunately when you design a system to be winner-takes-all or first-past-the post, you will end up with exactly two major parties. There’s no way for a third party to take hold unless support for one of the majors spontaneously collapses. (This is part of what a proper instant runoff/ranked choice ballot system tries to address…the wasted vote fear that the two parties both use to keep people in line.)

I don’t know how a system where you could pick a VP from a different party would even work. There’s no constitutional provision for picking separate groups of electors for both races; one group of electors votes for both offices. That’s built into the constitution.

perhaps it means not affiliated or beholden to anyone being considered

Just received a tip from a Wisconsin voter in Bayfield County.

They ran out of paper ballots & voters could only vote electronically.

Did any other WI counties run out of paper ballots?
In 2022, Luzerne County, PA ran out of paper ballots

AND

Harris County, TX, ran out of paper ballots.

This is one reason why I’ve been pushing for early voting.

There is a history of things happening on Election Day.

pat frederick

that sounds reasonable.
have they ever run out of paper to do so?

TradeBait2

Same here in TN. Printed out after selections and entered into the tabulator by the voter. They could still mess with the tabulator, but it would be more difficult with audits against the paper ballots and visual observation by vetted/pre-approved auditors. We don’t do Fulton County well here.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That’s pretty much the way it works here…assuming you vote in person and don’t just use the mail-in ballot.

Because they’re no longer identifying people as migrants, immigrants or illegals we have no idea which group or what region they’re in. It’s common now in news stories that these illegals are described as ” a Texan” or a ” Maryland woman”, etc . Sometimes toward the end of the article you can figure it out that they’re new to the US.

Exactly. So much has happened in the last 3 years that is completely contrary to any sovereign nation in history. Stepping back from the daily onslaught of Trump persecution, crime, the economy, transgender insanity….what FJB has done to our immigration system is treasonous.

There are possibly TWO reasons why meningococcal disease are on the rise in the United States:

One: Unvetted illegal alien invasion, thus bringing meningococcal (and multiple other types) of diseases / infections with them.
Two: The modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines.” There are SIX different types of MENINGOCOCCAL disease conditions listed as Adverse Events of Special Interest in the Appendix 1. section of the report that Pfizer-BioNTech gave to the FDA in APRIL 2021 on the company’s “flagship” modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2:
https://phmpt.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/5.3.6-postmarketing-experience.pdf

OF COURSE the CDC would AVOID mentioning that the modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” play a role in the exploding numbers of meningococcal diseases presenting now.

Bonus, USDA assuming CDC/FDA/NIH skeer mongering role.

PAVACA

This is the H5N1 bird flu that can transfer to cattle (cows) and then to humans.

There is an FDA-“approved vaccine” for H5N1 already out there. It’s called AUDENZ. It’s made by the Seqirus company. It was FDA-“approved” in 2023.

Here’s the Package Insert for AUDENZ. It’s a protein-subunit derivative “vaccine.” —
http://www.fda.gov/media/135020/download
There were NO toxicological studies that were performed for this “vaccine.”
There were NO genotoxicity studies that were performed for this “vaccine.”
There were NO pregnancy or lactation studies that were performed for this “vaccine.”
There were NO post-marketing studies that were performed for this “vaccine.”
The FDA “approved” AUDENZ for use BASED ON THE RESULTS OF ITS “SISTER VACCINES”, INFLUENZA “VACCINES” CALLED “FLUCELVAX” and “FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT.”

The following adverse reactions may occur after taking AUDENZ, per the FDA document above:
Anaphylaxis;
Lymphadenopathy;
Bell’s Palsy;
Convulsions;
DEMYELINATION (the “wrapping” of nerves / spinal cord are shredded);
Encephalitis (brain inflammation);
Guillain-Barre syndrome;
Rash;
Muscle weakness.

Reading Jack Smith’s response on jury instructions and it’s clear that the gloves are off btw DOJ and Judge Cannon.
One defense attorney just told me: “The tone Smith is taking with Cannon is no longer persuasion but outright threats. Unheard of dynamic btw DOJ and the bench.”
Jack Smith’s response is hysterical (and not in a funny way in a desperate way) bc he knows he has little control over her decision related to final jury instructions.
And he is arguing the basis for Trump’s “unauthorized possession” of national defense material rests on Obama exec order not the Presidential Records Act.
So everyone who cried for months that “DRUMPF BROKE THE PRA!” can sit down. Jack Smith says PRA now has nothing to do with the case.
Also reminder of the bait and switch here. NARA sought files based on the claims Trump was violating the PRA. He produced 15 boxes of papers. NARA then claimed they found records with “classified markings” and sent a criminal referral (1st time ever) to FBI.
FBI promptly opened investigation. FBI sent a subpoena to Trump in May 2022 seeking more records with “classified markings.” They turned over 38 more files.
Then in August, FBI sought search warrant seeking “national defense information.” Reminder too we have not seen full unredacted application for search warrant.
Did DOJ seek warrant under the PRA or the Espionage Act or Obama’s Exec Order or….what?
I will separate out Smith’s threats to Cannon (unusual and toothless for the most part) later but this is basically the jury instructions DOJ wants to use.
This also might be a problem for DOJ bc it appears Trump still had Q security clearance at Dept. of Energy–one that DOE retroactively rescinded after Smith indicted Trump.
Also during March 14 hearing, DOJ claimed there was no formal process for a president to either receive or lose security clearance. So this might be another area of contention
This is why Smith is so angry–he knows if Cannon proceeds with the proposed scenario presented in her jury instructions order, he is, as one defense attorney told me at the time, f*cked.
He essentially demands that she rule now on jury instructions (she doesn’t have to) or dismiss the counts so he can appeal. If she doesn’t, he might seek “mandamus” at appellate court–asking 11th Circuit to tell Cannon what to do in the case. Very rare.
A reminder that this is Smith’s indictment.
Charged a former president for the first time on violating the Espionage Act.
Now Smith’s wants the jury to interpret the language of the law based on Obama’s Executive Order not the Presidential Records Act.

In 2020, Georgia ran an illegal election. – Missing chain of custody docs – Missing surveillance tapes of drop boxes – Signature verification errors – Dirty voter rolls, invalid votes – Double scanned ballots (in initial count) – Fulton County ballots scanned w/o election observers You can quibble about “rigged” or “stolen,” but you cannot argue that election laws were followed. (It is obvious that an election is “rigged” when the laws systematically are not followed and it favors one party over another.) Americans cannot trust elections with mass mail-in ballots when the system is ripe with opportunities for malfeasance and fraud.

NEW: Former ESPN host Sage Steele says her interview with Joe Biden was completely scripted & she was ordered to not deviate from the script at all.

The president of the United States can’t answer a question by himself. Insane.

“It was so structured and I was told, ‘you will say every word that we write out, you will not deviate from the script…’ to the word, like every single question was scripted.”

“Gone over dozens of times by many executives, editors, and executives. Absolutely. I was on script and was told not to deviate as it was very much, this is what you will ask.”
