Here is the Nancy Pelosi video.

Newly released footage shows Nancy Pelosi admitting to a lack of responsibility and acknowledging the failure to have the National Guard “prepared for more” during the Jan 6 riot.

This footage surfaced three years after Pelosi spent millions of taxpayer dollars on investigations and repeatedly blamed President Trump.

To whom was she referring who asked her “in the middle of the thing, should we call the National Guard”?

I don’t think this video fits the narrative that she deliberately denied the request for the National Guard because she wanted as much trouble as possible. She seems distressed and SAYS she takes responsibility. Was she saying that because she knew it was being recorded? But it doesn’t work in her favor. It shows that she was unprepared for the number of people who were there.

I don’t think anything will happen as a result of this video coming out. The Right will continue to say that she denied the NG on purpose, and the Left will say, “See? She made a mistake and is taking responsibility.”

eilert

This is Mike Benz take on this.
He says Nancy may have only been used as a vessel and Mark Milley and his crony burokrate generals at the Pentagon may have been involved at far larger scale then most acknowledge.

Which is why I have posted.

Trump in the WH. Milley needs to be brought back on Active Duty AND court martialed. TREASON is the primary charge.

Gail Combs

There are a heck of a lot of DC swamp creatures that need to be indicted for TREASON!

para59r

This thing is suspect. Not that it’s not real, but that it is real. Why a camera in the back? Is this a layer of defense that edges closer to the truth, (that she acknowledges a level of responsibility while feigning she never aware of what was going on) only to be used if everything went side ways? Which it is and why we are likely seeing it now. Pelosi is going to use this in her defense. The only thing it settles is that she demonstrates to her psycho base that she was indeed responsible for Capitol Security. Apparently that is a big bump to get over when it should not be if people could only be pointed to the right documents concerning capitol security and read them. Or just listen to Ivan Raiklin.

“…she was indeed responsible for Capitol Security….”

BINGO!!!

All POTUS Trump could do was OFFER National Guard and troops. Muriel Bowser  Washington, DC’s mayor, Mitch and Nancy VETOED IT

National Guard Refused on Jan. 6 Because ‘Pelosi Would Never Go for It’: Former Capitol Police Chief

Three days before Jan. 6, 2021, 👉U.S. House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving rejected Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund’s request for National Guard help because Mr. Irving said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would “never go for it,” Mr. Sund testified before a House subcommittee on Sept. 19.

Mr. Sund’s revelation came during a 90-minute hearing before the Committee on House Administration’s Subcommittee on Oversight.

In his first testimony before a House committee since he was forced to resign on Jan. 8, 2021,👉 Mr. Sund detailed his deep frustration at not getting the National Guard help that would have been a “game changer” on Jan. 6.

Mr. Sund said in meetings with Mr. Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger on Jan. 3, he had asked them to approve his request for National Guard soldiers to help secure the Capitol on Jan. 6. Mr. Irving and Mr. Stenger made up two-thirds of the Capitol Police Board, which oversees U.S. Capitol Police and had to approve any such requests….

“I said, ‘Mr. Stenger, you came up with that response fairly quickly for me to call General Walker,’” Mr. Sund testified. “And he told me Paul Irving had called him ahead of time and said: ‘Sund came here looking for the National, asking for the National Guard. We got to come up with another plan. Pelosi will never go for it.’

“I was floored by him saying that,” Mr. Sund told Mr. Loudermilk.

👉Mr. Stenger, who was appointed to his post by then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), died on June 27, 2022, after an extended illness. 👉Mr. Irving, appointed by Ms. Pelosi but who also served under Republican House speakers, could not be reached for comment. Mr. Loudermilk said Mr. Irving will be called to testify before the subcommittee…

Gail Combs

This is Mike Benz take on this.

He says Nancy may have only been used as a vessel and Mark Milley and his crony burokrate generals at the Pentagon may have been involved at far larger scale then most acknowledge.

I will agree that the Obama Generals were very much in on it, BUT I also think that Ivan Raiklin laid out very good evidence that Nasty the Pig, Mikey Pence and Mitch the Turtle were ALSO in on it.

The fact that the House Doctor said he DID NOT suggest ‘social distancing’ to Nasty, so less than a Quorum were on the House Floor, PREVENTING many house members from bringing up objections AND her Daughter and Son-in-law were coordinating with plants outside tells me, Nasty was an integral part of the Buffalo Jump.

I do not know why Benz is protecting Nasty.

The point about “… working on a “project” created “by Jews” to deradicalize the alt-right and “combat anti-Semitism”….” Makes me wonder if he is working for the Jewish Lobby AIPAC,  Thomas Massie talks about AT MINIMUM, or if he is actually working for MOSSAD.

Who knows? I’ll take Bannon or even Manafort over this guy; at least they’re well known and haven’t been ‘spooky’ if you catch my drift.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Bear in mind that there is a whole lot of both real fighting and kayfabe between Jewish factions across Zionists and anti-Zionists.

Bottom line – Jews are constantly out to avoid the next Holocaust, with some thinking this can only by accomplished by censorship, and others realizing that having Jews being ASSOCIATED with censorship in America is a dangerous thing, likely to backfire very badly.

If he was calling out ADL for censorship and anti-First-Amendment actions, then he’s totally on the mark.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

All of this makes sense per the Sundance-posted theory that Pelosi wanted an emergency session to prevent rejection of tainted state electors.

In a conspiracy, there are always “layers of getting away with it” that involve various degrees of admission of fault to what that player knows (which is never everything, and is frequently wrong, and the result of deception from above). Generally speaking….

  • get away clean – nobody even knows you did anything
  • I’m just a witness – dindu nuffins
  • I’m a good guy – I tried to stop it
  • It’s not what you think it is
  • heroic mea culpa (Oliver North)
  • I should have tried to stop it
  • I had to go along with it
  • I was spying on it
  • I was going to report it
  • etc., etc.

I think that Nancy’s initial plan was to admit that she should or could have done something more to prevent it, but as things developed, she was getting away with things better than she expected, so she changed her plan to admit less fault, which is very common.

Generally speaking, one goes for the strongest defense, with several layers of back-down to fall back on.

I don’t fully get the Benz angle. He may be MK mission-driven by CIA or Mossad. This is especially likely as a Holocaust survivor kid, and explains his being dropped as an asset into the antisemitic right wing. Thus, he’s likely helping the State-CIA-Mossad complex push a line of thinking which pushes responsibility off of Nanzi and onto Milley.

“Complicated Business.”

YUP!
It was THEATER and could easily have just been recorded for that matter.

Ivan Raiklin has repeatedly gone over the CHAIN OF COMMAND for the Capital Police.

The capitol police are ruled by a triumvirate called the Capitol Police Board, with the Chief of police a NON-VOTING FOURTH MEMBER.

ALL OF THEM WERE GOTTEN RID OF IMMEDIATELY. MEANING THEY COULD NOT BE FORCED TO TESTIFY AGAINST THE TURTLE AND THE PIG-LOUSE

Note that the Marine was gotten rid of permanently.

June 29 2022 — The Sergeant at Arms in Charge of Capitol Security on January 6 DIES under Mysterious Circumstances

The Senate Sergeant at Arms who was charged with securing the Capitol building on January 6 has died under circumstances that are still a mystery.

“Fox confirms that Michael Stenger, the Senate Sergeant at Arms who was in charge of Senate security the day of the Capitol riot, has died,” Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported….

House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving subsequently gave his resignation notice, as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced. Capitol Police chief Steven Sund also resigned, effective Jan. 16, and left a letter filled with heavy criticism of the weak Capitol security, which followed upon numerous warnings given to the Congress.

He was appointed as the Senate Sergeant-at-Arms in 2018 by Senator Mitch McConnell. He was a Marine and  and had previously worked for the U.S. Secret Service for more than three decades. AP LINK

Stenger died Monday of natural causes, according to two people familiar with the matter.🙄 One of the people said he had been diagnosed with cancer and had been ill. The people would not discuss details of his condition publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The Capitol Architect is appointed by the President (Trump) and he was gotten rid of ASAP

Biden Fires TrumpAppointed Architect of the Capitol businessinsider

President Joe Biden fired Architect of the Capitol Brett Blanton, a White House official confirmed to Insider on Monday afternoon.

“After doing our due diligence, Mr. Blanton’s appointment as Architect of the Capitol was terminated at the President’s direction,” the official said in a statement.

Blanton’s dismissal follows a report from the Inspector General’s office accusing Blanton of misusing a government vehicle and impersonating a police officer.

He also sparked outrage among House Administration Committee members during a hearing last week when he said he did not respond to the US Capitol during the January 6, 2021 insurrection “because of the security situation,” Roll Call reported.  The IG report said he confirmed that he didn’t talk with US Capitol Police about a request for an emergency declaration or interest in seeking National Guard support in advance of the January 6 breach.

Gail Combs

Ivan mentions Paul Irving was appointed by John Boehner (R) and then KEPT by NASTY THE PIG-LOUSE. Interesting that his Congress Dot Gov does not mention any of that!

John Boehner was elected speaker when the 112th Congress convened on January 5, 2011. Nasty was Speaker from 2019 to 2023 so Paul Irving served under BOTH speakers.

The Honorable Paul D. Irving was sworn in as Sergeant at Arms of the U.S. House of Representatives on January 17, 2012, during the 2nd session of the 112th Congress.

Paul Irving was born August 21, 1957, in Tampa, Florida. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Justice from American University in Washington, D.C. in 1979, and a Juris Doctorate from Whittier Law School in Los Angeles, California in 1981. Mr. Irving began his law enforcement career in 1980 as a clerk for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Los Angeles, California, and was appointed a Special Agent at the Secret Service’s Los Angeles Field Office in 1983. After assignments in the forgery, counterfeit and protective intelligence squads, he was transferred to Washington, D.C., where he served as the head legal instructor for constitutional law, statutory authority and criminal procedure at the Secret Service Training Academy.

He was then assigned to the Presidential Protective Division at the White House during the administrations of George H.W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton, where he rose to a supervisory position. Subsequent to his White House duty, Mr. Irving served as Deputy Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs, Assistant Director for Government and Public Affairs, Assistant Director for Homeland Security, and Assistant Director for Administration. During his tenure as Assistant Director for Government and Public Affairs in 2002, Mr. Irving was detailed in a core leadership role to the Office of Management and Budget Transition Planning Office, which created the Department of Homeland Security, the largest government reorganization since the Department of Defense in 1947.

As Assistant Director for Government and Public Affairs, he was responsible for all interaction between the Secret Service and Members of Congress, as well as all statutory authorization and budget appropriation requests to Congress. As Assistant Director for Administration, Mr. Irving was responsible for the Secret Service strategic plan, all financial and administrative functions of the $1.6 billion Secret Service budget, 6,800 personnel and 130 field offices worldwide….

Regarding this tweet from the open:

How did they know, and how did we miss this?

The CEO of Moderna, Stéphane Bancel, confessed that their company manufactured 100,000 doses of

COVID-19 vaccine in 2019.

In 2019 he stated: “Next year we’re going to need to make 1 billion doses. There’s going to be a pandemic.”

Some people need to start going to jail.

He didn’t say the company manufactured 100,000 doses of COVID-19 vax in 2019. He said the company had made 100,000 doses of vaccines (all vaccines, not COVID vaccines) for the whole year of 2019.

But he did say, “There’s going to be a pandemic.” A charitable take would be that he could see the handwriting on the wall when people started getting sick. Or one can believe he possibly planned the pandemic, or at least knew that it was planned, and then reported that fact to the world.

Foreign-Born Workers, Illegals Dominate U.S. Job Gains While Native-Born Americans Struggle

America last. Last month 663,000 Americans lost their jobs while 414,000 foreigners stole American jobs.

Foreign-Born Workers Dominate U.S. Job Gains While Native-Born Americans Struggle

By: Brianna Lyman, The Federalist, June 07, 2024

The left has tried to spin foreign-born workers’ job gains as “propelling the economy.”

Though President Joe Biden touts the economy under his administration, polls consistently show Americans are sour on the state of economic affairs — probably because, as economist E.J. Antoni told The Federalist, “the economy has only been adding jobs that are held by foreign-born workers while native-born Americans are losing jobs.”

Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for the month of May shows that foreign-born workers in the United States gained 637,000 jobs year-over-year, while native-born workers lost roughly 299,000.

The BLS acknowledges foreign-born workers includes illegal immigrants.

“It is likely that both surveys include at least some undocumented immigrants. However, neither the establishment nor the household survey is designed to identify the legal status of workers,” the BLS states, adding they have no idea how many native-born workers are illegal.

Antoni pointed out in a post on X that “native-born employment is not only millions below pre-pandemic trend, but even below pre-pandemic level, while millions more foreign workers are employed today than [February of 2020], and back to trend.”

The left has tried to spin the taking of American jobs by foreign-born workers as “propelling the economy.”…

Apple Is Dependent on China’s Economy… – Business Insider

When Tech Knows You Better Than You Know Yourself — WIREDHistorian Yuval Noah Harari [of WEF] and ethicist Tristan Harris discuss the future of artificial intelligence with WIRED editor in chief Nicholas Thompson.

WHEN YOU ARE 2 years old, your mother knows more about you than you know yourself. As you get older, you begin to understand things about your mind that even she doesn’t know. But then, says Yuval Noah Harari, another competitor joins the race: “You have this corporation or government running after you, and they are way past your mother, and they are at your back.” Amazon will soon know when you need lightbulbs right before they burn out. YouTube knows how to keep you staring at the screen long past when it’s in your interest to stop. An advertiser in the future might know your sexual preferences before they are clear to you. (And they’ll certainly know them before you’ve told your mother.)

I had the chance to speak with Harari, the author of three best-selling books, and Tristan Harris, who runs the Center for Humane Technology and who has played a substantial role in making “time well spent” perhaps the most-debated phrase in Silicon Valley in 2018. They are two of the smartest people in the world of tech, and each spoke eloquently about self-knowledge and how humans can make themselves harder to hack. As Harari said, “We are now facing not just a technological crisis but a philosophical crisis.”

Artificial Intelligence May Know You Better Than You Know Yourself FORBES

The aim of artificial intelligence is to have machines learn and deduct mass amounts of individual and collective data –and process through it quicker than a human brain would– 👉to give the user a truly personalized response.👈 And because we are now the most comfortable while chatting on social media or instant messaging apps, chatbots and AI-bots are becoming many company’s choice delivery method for this type of highly- personalized and intelligent user experience.

We have accepted that soon, various parts of our lives will be ruled by machines gathering and analysing large quantities of our seemingly insignificant data to provide us with the services we need or to steer us toward an outcome we desire.

But how exactly are AI and chatbots changing the consumer habits?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

My opinion? It’s using AI to make all applications more efficient but less secure and in some cases very toxic.

AI is currently in the same state that WEF was to wireless tech – meaning BAD, BROKEN, and UNSAFE.

Musk is right. People who don’t really get AI are making decisions about AI, and it’s very, very SMH.

In Trump’s own words years back. STARE THEM DOWN.

Recording Phone Calls and Conversations: 50-State Survey

Last reviewed October 2022

Federal Law

Federal law (18 U.S.C. § 2511) requires one-party consent, which means you can record a phone call or conversation so long as you are a party to the conversation. If you are not a party to the conversation, you can record a conversation or phone call only if at least one party consents and has full knowledge that the communication will be recorded. The statute also prohibits recording conversations with criminal or tortious intent.

State Law

Most states have enacted laws that are similar to the federal statute, meaning that they generally require one-party consent (click each state to see the details below).

One-Party Consent States

New York

All-Party Consent States

These states clearly or potentially require consent from all parties under some or all circumstances:

Florida

Florida

In Florida it is illegal to record an in-person or telephone conversation without the consent of all parties. Violating this law constitutes either a misdemeanor or a third degree felony depending on the offender’s intent and conviction history, and can also subject the offender to civil damages.

Defected Ep. 74 – 9:00 PM ET – Sundayhttps://rumble.com/v50iyob-defected-ep.-74.html

BB and Kyle went over several news articles that show a shifting in the ‘Overton Goal Posts’

Two are Time articles on Biden by Massimo Calabresi, (‘We Are the World Power’ How Joe Biden Leads & If he Wins) Another Time Article by Eric Cortellessa (How far would Trump Go?)

‘We Are the World Power’ How Joe Biden Leads has an interesting quote:

By his own account, Trump sees all countries as unreliable, the relations between them transactional. That sentiment has spread throughout a Republican Party that once championed American values abroad. J.D. Vance, the Ohio Senator in contention to become Trump’s Vice President, tells Time that the D-Day story has become a sepia-toned distraction. “The foreign policy establishment is obsessed with World War II historical analogies,” says Vance, “and everything is some fairy tale they tell themselves from the 1930s & 1940s.”

BB goes off on an Anti-War rant. I would like to add a passage from:
Days of Infamy The Future Is Calling (Part Three) © 2003 by G. Edward Griffin Revised 2004, May 3.

THE WAR TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE FOR DEMOCRACY

As we contemplate a member of the Rhodes secret society, occupying two rooms in the White House [ Colonel House. Woodrow Wilson’s other self.], virtually in control of American foreign policy, our time machine finally brings us to World War I. Since our main topic today is war, we must prepare now to comprehend the events we are about to see in terms of the strategy for using war to smash the world to bits and then remold it closer to the hearts desire.

The sinking of the Lusitania was the event that, more than any other, motivated the American people to accept the necessity and the morality of getting into World War I. Prior to that time, there was great reluctance to participate in a war that had little to do with American interests. However, when the Lusitania left New York Harbor on May 1, 1915, with 196 Americans on board and was sunk six days later off the coast of Ireland, it became the cause celebre that moved the American consciousness into a war mood against Germany. Americans were outraged at a nation that could viciously and cold-heartedly attack a peaceful passenger ship.

What is not well known about that piece of history is the role played by J.P. Morgan. As you recall, the CFR was described by Professor Quigley as a front for J.P. Morgan and Company. We must remember that Morgan was, not only a founding member of the CFR, he was also a member of the Round Table, the inner group directing it, so how does Morgan fit into this?

During World War I, the Morgan Bank was the subscription agent for war loans to England and France. These countries had exhausted their financial resources to continue the war against Germany. So they came to the United States and asked J.P. Morgan – who was culturally closer to Britain than to America – to be their agent for selling war bonds. The House of Morgan was happy to do that, and it floated approximately $1.5 billion in war bonds on behalf of England and, to a lesser extent, for France.

Morgan was also the contract agent for these countries when they purchased materials and supplies from American firms. That means he had a wonderfully profitable revolving door in which he received a piece of the action as the money went out of the country as loans and again, when it came back into the country, for the purchase of materials…. 

Remember it was JP Morgan and the war materials group that bought up media so they could INFLUENCE AMERICANS ATTITUDES in 1915…

Gail Combs

Back to the main focus of the Defected vid.

After an hour analyzing the three Times articles, which are mostly positive about Biden, they get into a Wall Street Journal article, Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping: Participants in meetings said the 81-year-old president performed poorly at times. The White House said Biden is sharp and his critics are playing partisan politics.

Starting at 1:01:00 Kyle reads parts of the article between laughing so hard he had to wipe away tears.

One part of the article says:

“This article is based on interviews with more than 45 people over several months…Most of those who said Biden performed poorly were Republicans but some Democrats said that he showed his age in several of the exchanges…

The White House kept close tabs on some of the WSJ’s interviews with Democratic lawmakers. After the offices of several Democrats shared with the White House either a recording of an interview or details about what was asked, some of those lawmakers spoke to the Journal a second time and once again emphasized Biden’s strengths…

… last year’s debt-ceiling … They said McCarthy privately told administration officials at the time that he was impressed with Biden’s performance, and that McCarthy suggested as much in public remarks….

As BB says at 1:21:55 

“What’s the story? What is the story that this WSJ piece is putting forward? They are caviating and saying, Donald Trump is bad he’s old too, it is almost like a given to them. We KNOW we don’t like Trump. BUT the story of that article is: We have to talk about Uncle Joe. WE, the establishment, have to talk about him… I look at this June 4th WSJ piece as a bell that has been rung. They came out and said “We need to talk about Joe.”

And I think it says two things:

#1. We are going to see what the rest of the establishment media does in response to that bell…

#2. It suggests what You [Kyle], me and Jon [Harold] have been saying on Wednesday nights. The establishment does not know what to do about the Nov election because they do not want Joe Biden to be their guy but they are afraid he is.👉 IT MEANS THEY DO NOT HAVE THE INFORMATION THEY USED TO HAVE!👈 They want to talk about Joe, but they do not know what their options are besides Joe.

.👉 IT MEANS THEY DO NOT HAVE THE INFORMATION THEY USED TO HAVE!👈

I find that significant. Remember all the top players who are now dead.

Just so you see the connections I am going to start with this article:
2017 — The Atlantic, Aspen Institute tap social media to promote social change

The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute are tapping the full range of social media, from Facebook to Periscope, to promote social change through a broad exchange of ideas on mobile from participants both off site and on at the Aspen Ideas Festival. 

With a mobile application as the centerpiece, the festival, which runs through July 4 and showcases discussions, seminars and tutorials from a plethora of thinkers, not only leverages social channels such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube, but also uses Reddit and Periscope to bring attendees closer to speakers and events. The social media emphasis points to social?s power as an agent for education and social change.

“We’re using social and mobile platforms so our audience around the world can stay engaged with the Aspen Ideas Festival,” said Mary Cappabianca, senior associate for public affairs and social media with The Aspen Institute, which co-produces the festival with The Atlantic….

This is the final news story BB & Kyle cover that puts the icing on the cake and it is a DOOZY!

Ruth Bader Biden – The Atlantic: No matter the obstacles that Donald Trump creates for himself, Joe Biden’s candidacy remains an existentially risky, perhaps disastrous, proposition.

ARCHIVED

We are a little over one week removed from the verdict—that verdict—and Democrats have what they’ve long been craving: a conviction of Donald Trump, 34 times over. What impact, if any, is it having on this noisy roulette game in which we’re trapped? Let us do the responsible thing and hedge: too soon, too soon.

But early polls suggest that a significant plurality of Americans agree with the jury’s decision, and that it could produce at least a small bump in support for President Joe Biden. [OOPS, well that didn’t work out too well did it -GC]

The Manhattan verdict has interrupted the flare-up of bad vibes that had afflicted Democrats for weeks. “A pervasive sense of fear has settled in at the highest levels of the Democratic Party,” began one assessment in Politico a few days before Trump’s conviction. This followed a grim set of battleground polls in May from The New York Times and Siena College, and another survey, from The Cook Political Report With Amy Walter, finding that Biden was significantly underperforming Democratic Senate candidates in five of those key states…

But here is a broader thematic reality for the president: Bad vibes have been the persistent feature of his campaign. No matter the obstacles Trump creates for himself, Biden remains a comprehensively weak incumbent, weighed down by the same liabilities that burdened him from the start, beginning with the largest, and completely unfixable, one: At 81, he is much too old to run for president. Durable supermajorities of voters still do not want any part of Biden at this age…

Biden’s conduct is far worse than Ginsburg’s, in fact, given the awesome power of the presidency and 👉the havoc Trump could unleash with it this time.

I don’t keep bringing this up because I enjoy having jittery Democrats who secretly agree with this assessment tell me to shut up, that my doomsaying is “not helpful.”

They reiterate that Trump would be tragically worse for the country than even an 86-year-old Biden in the White House. That’s essentially been Biden’s message for the past five years: “Don’t compare me to the Almighty. Compare me to the alternative.” 👉He continues to submit that the main rationale for his presidency is as a high-stakes game of keep-away. There’s no question he’s better than the alternative, but that doesn’t mean it’s enough.

Yesterday on TRUTH, I responded to PDJT’s post about ending the income tax on service worker’s tip. In the post I asked if he would PLEASE consider eliminating the income tax on Seniors [passed by Brandon, a while back]

Here’s hoping he will see it.

Gail Combs

Actually most Seniors have ALREADY paid tax so why should they pay even more tax.

Capital gains on real estate is a REAL problem for Seniors.

My parents bought a nice home in NYC for $3,000, My cousin bought a home in NYC for $300,000 and now a modest home in NYC is going for 1.5 million.

All the ‘Appreciation’ is actually CURRENCY DEVALUATION and therefore SHOULD NOT BE TAXED as a ‘gain’

pgroup2

That’s actually a great legal theory.

Too many legal contests are lost because one side or the other accepted the usual view of certain concepts instead of challenging that familiar viewpoint.

Always demand that the adversary produce his authorities for each element that he must prove in order to win. Accept nothing in which ‘everybody knows what it means’. Force them to prove it. Remember that until some public defender in Arizona in 1966 insisted that cops were required to honor George Miranda’s constitutional rights, cops didn’t have to care about rights.

Now they have to recite Miranda warnings as soon as you are suspected of a crime.

In Encino!!!! Used to be super super nice, upper middle class. Just wow… vid in article. They really went after the poor employee. The gall. Voming back to beat the employee long after the shoplifting attempt was stopped. Incredible.

https://ktla.com/news/local-news/ralphs-employee-attacked-after-stopping-alleged-shoplifter-in-los-angeles/

Police are searching for a group of people responsible for assaulting a Ralphs employee in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles Monday.

KTLA obtained videos from a store employee of the attack inside the store located at 17840 Ventura Blvd. around 4:45 p.m.

The first video shows three suspects, one woman and two men, walking into the store and confronting an unidentified male store employee standing near a female employee.

Within seconds one of the suspects throws a punch at the male employee before the scuffle briefly moves out of the camera’s view. 

The fight comes back into view showing the victim being attacked by multiple suspects.

The employee who provided the video said that at one point a suspect shoved a shopping cart into the victim.

Another angle of the incident shows the store employee trying to run from the suspects after the first punch is thrown. 

The incident began earlier in the day when that same employee stopped the young woman from stealing bags full of merchandise, according to the employee who provided the video.

The same woman returned with the men seen in the video a few hours later, the employee told KTLA.

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.

GIFT OF GRACE

His Grace is abundant in meekness
His strength is made perfect in weakness
Gladly glory in your infirmities
And do not fear any adversities

When you are torn and worn from battle
Angels will remove the rote rattle 
Lift you up and attend to your sores
The bruises and scars from many wars

When you are dejected defeated and down
Remember God’s mercy will soon abound
He will carry you gently while you heal
The power of His Love you will surely feel

By the Grace of God you are who you are
His Grace imparted on you left no scar
You labored more abundantly than many
More than adequate which was plenty

By Grace you are saved thru Faith it is said
And not of yourself but a gift instead
One of many God bestows upon those
Who obey His commands even en throes

When you are weakened spiritually
Be rest assured of God’s right remedy
Nothing that happens is ever too large
Be still and know that He is in charge

By your side He will always be ready
To raise you right up and keep you steady
By Grace through Faith you belong to Him
A loving gift He confers not on a whim

I am very glad to see that.

Shocker. Tainted jury was the obvious worry, but with an honest judge and solid case Yeah! 🤗

Now we see what the sentencing is AND if Bite-me will PARDON his son — NOT a good look heading into an election.

THIS is delicious. 😉

pgroup2

Pardoning his son would have no good purpose now, from his point of view.

As it stands right now, any good lawsuit [civil or criminal] can interrogate Hunter about the contents of the laptop.

His 5th amendment right to remain silent is gone, plus it’s been admitted into evidence so it has already inured in the verdict so it cannot be challenged.

cthulhu

If Hunter actually does time, maybe he can actually be off drugs for a while.

At his age, it would have to be total abstention after he got out. That means no intoxicants of any kind, including alcohol. I’ve done sobriety for 41 years and it took about ten of those years for me to stop being pissed that I could no longer have a drink with friends. I never missed getting high or buzzed; just the social lubrication aspects.

pgroup2

I also hated CHEERS because it made social drinking look so nice and pleasant; no drunks.

Linda

Me, too, pgroup. 35 years here. I don’t miss the social aspects. Most of the people I see frequently don’t drink or drink very little.

Aubergine

Congrats on 35 years!

pgroup2

My social life is limited to wife’s political activities and that is not a gathering of abstainers, to put it mildly.  😉

What about red feather boas and jock straps?

It’s some of his best work.

This one’s called “Hunter: feeling sassy, at the end of the day” 🤣

gag…..we have this ^^ and all his other personal favorite snaps and then we have Ashley B’s diary AND public knowledge of PERVOTUS swimming nude …..what a family!

pgroup2

Never a dull moment.  😡

Please, I beg you, do not post pictures such as this. It disturbs my mellow.

👍 Well done, pgroup2.

30 years for me. A few occasions in the early years I missed it for the same reasons in business. But overall, nah.

ThanQ. Me and God work well together.

Good for you! Maintaining sobriety is no easy task.

Come on, man!

If Hunter is in prison, who’s gonna be Brandon’s bag man?

Somebody has to get him his 10% cut.

If he doesn’t pardon Hunter so he can get back to painting valuable works of art and collecting payoffs from foreign and domestic criminals, who’s going to do it?

Jill?

Is Dr. Jill going to be his new mule? 😂

I don’t think Dr. Jill would make a good mule, appearances notwithstanding…..

scott467

Somebody has to make the collections and deposit Joe’s cut.

Them’s the rules.

And if Brandon can’t do it, then Junkyard Jill will need to be pressed into service 👍 😂

Hunter’s not going to prison. We both know that. Judge already ahs his orders, which he’ll follow.

pgroup2

I confess to overlooking the practical aspects, opting instead to focus on politics. Forgive my myopia.  😪

The «jury box» isn’t completely broken then. Only partially broken, as we have seen with the cases in NY. Perhaps it is still fixable.

No celebrations. They tried him on charges that were the least they could get by with from his sordid life. He jumped in with the clowns to protect his drugged azz and make money for them and the don in his mafia family, Brandon. The lot of them may escape real justice in this world, but not in the next.

By not charging him for all crimes and withholding the laptop from Hell for years while denying it existed reveals that depth of criminality in our government. Same with Cankle’s and Weiner’s. Seth Rich still lies in the grave unavenged. It goes on an on. Will take a small win, but no celebrating for me unless the curtain falls on the lot of them.

Gail Combs

I want RICO/TREASON charges on the ENTIRE Biden-Obama-Clinton MOB AFTER Trump is back in office. The Laptop from Hell then comes into it’s own.

Convicting now does little.

What this trial DID DO IN SPADES was SHOWCASE the LAPTOP from HELL and the fact the Intel community was LYING in order to GET TRUMP.

That is the real win. And it leads normies a couple feet closer to the real truth about our VERY CORRUPT treasonous ‘Ruling Class’

TradeBait2

Yes!

The entire operation of our federal government is covered by the RICO Act IMO. Not saying the judiciary would agree or give in on the issue. There are federal government related legal entities operating in collusion with one another leading and participating in numerous listed crimes of the act. As an example both DNC and GOP are incorporated. Members of them are sitting, voting officials in Congress. Just take it from there and include all of the others from the interconnections.

All of the corporate protections can be pierced even for civil law purposes because of willful negligence and criminal intent.

pgroup2

Not RICO. Criminal conspiracy.

Easier to prove cc.

TradeBait2

I agree, pgroup. I dream of the bigger hammer, but criminal conspiracy wrecks it.

mollypitcher5

Well said TB

Dunno if this will show.

OMG..what a look, 54 years old holding hands with his stepmommy and wife. What’s with these people? Grow up

And they will use it to justify prosecuting (persecuting) Trump.
