Folks have you heard the words “defund the police lately?” Of course, you haven’t, since our inner cities are now crime riddled utopias, the idea of calling to removing police from the streets is toxic. Key word in my last sentence was “idea.” You see the liberals in the country don’t change their beliefs, they change a buzz word.
What is happening in big cities nationwide right now is a massive crime surge, violent crime especially. You don’t need to watch the news; you can see it with your own eyes. We have been releasing “non-violent” folks from prison. These folks mixed with reduced morale at the local precinct, and city councils who are pressuring the local DA not to charge on certain offenses. The result is a powder keg about to blow. The Democrats saw all this, and they know the suburban moms (aka the ones who supported Trump the first time, not the second) are having second thoughts on “defunding.” So, they changed the rhetoric, now it’s a vaccine mandate.
Cities got smart, why call it defunding when the word mandate works just as well? It’s not about your health and safety, right? That officer standing guard on the corner? The officer who pulled you over? Well, they better not be unwashed! So as a result, a mandate works here. Again, it’s a public health crisis, right? Most know the public safety workers voted overwhelmingly for Trump and are most likely to be resistant to a vaccine. The answer is simple, order a mandate, if they don’t comply fire them. Why not, we get to shrink to police force and blame the officers not elected Democrats.
This is playing out all over the country, there is discussion of entire firehouses and police precincts shutting down. Look at New York City a place where crime has skyrocketed…the answer is less police due to a mandate! Remember when NYC cut one billion in police funding.
San Francisco has become a lawless region, parts of LA have vigilante justice. The problem will be getting worse not better, as these mandates are set to go into place over the next couple weeks.
Do not kid yourselves loyal readers, defund the police is alive and well, it just exists under a different name. Calling it a mandate and invoking public safety is the new buzzword. This is playing out in all big cities, hopefully it won’t come to one near you. We used to believe in freedoms here, sadly since 9/11 we have given those up, and put them in the hands of bureaucrats and a media that selectively reports and edits as they see fit. The virus isn’t killing the masses, it seems like it targets specific groups. Also why is it that today we have entire generations who want to go after people’s livelihoods? I think some do not understand the loss of a job leads indirectly to a loss of housing, transportation, food and mental state. Aren’t those things what the Left and BLM argue so much that they are in favor of?
Hiring police is not easy, it costs a ton of money and time. The candidate pool for recruiting has dried up. Now we have mandates. What will they mandate next?
Yep, I bet you missed that headline last week, but it was there if you could connect the dots. I mean what else could you conclude when you read that beginning in 2024 California will outlaw electrical generators.
California became the first state in the nation to outlaw the sale of gas-powered leaf blowers and lawnmowers in an attempt to curb emissions, a move met with both positive feedback and frustration.
Signed Saturday, the new law orders regulators to ban the sale of small off-road engines (SORE). While this is a broad category that includes generators, lawn equipment and pressure washers, it comprises a type of small engine on pace to produce more pollution each year than passenger vehicles.
Try this article for a more comprehensive understanding of the law.
California just banned the sale of gasoline powered backup generators, lawn mowers, small gas powered fire fighting pumps, and other small stationary engines, as part of their drive to reduce CO2 emissions.
The text requires regulators to consider “… (E) Expected availability of zero-emission generators and emergency response equipment. …”, so there is no doubt they plan to cover backup generators and emergency fire fighting equipment if they can.
This is beyond serious. Imagine trying to fight the fire approaching your house, only to have a low battery light start flashing on your fire fighting water pump. Or someone who requires powered medical equipment, like oxygen generators or sleep apnea devices, struggling through an extended power outage without proper treatment for their health condition.
Gasoline powered equipment, barring a mechanical failure, works as long as you can keep it supplied with gasoline. But battery equipment needs power to recharge it. Where do you get more power, if the sky is covered with smoke or clouds, or the solar panels are covered in dust, snow or ash, and the power lines are down?
Yet, with startling shortsightedness, the state assembly has sent Governor Gavin Newsom a bill that will effectively eliminate a go-to backup: gas-powered generators. The bill (AB-1346) lumps gas-powered generators in with the offending landscaping equipment and all other “small off-road engines,” referring to them as SOREs. It “encourages” the California Air Resources Board (the state’s own sort of EPA) to “adopt cost-effective and technologically feasible regulations to prohibit engine exhaust and evaporative emissions from new small off-road engines” and to consider “expected availability of zero-emission generators.”
When the power went out last August, says Collin Blackwell of Eldorado Hills, California, “We went out and bought an $800 generator, so that way we could have the fridge powered up in the garage at least and be able to have food and everything in the house.” Mark Galloway of Cameron Park said he lives in a mountain community where losing power is fairly common. “You should have something, so having the backup generator and things like that—I think it’s on you to really take care of that,” he said. “It’s not like it’s something that you can’t plan for.”
Californians who have been seen power supplies become more unreliable in recent years have increasingly turned to gas-powered electric generators to keep the lights on during “public safety power shutoffs.”
According to the industry trade group, there are 1.5 million portable generators in use in California today. The average gas-powered generator can provide 10-12 hours of power to run lights, phone chargers, refrigerators, microwaves and more, with a simple refueling keeping them powered another half-day.
Ok, given the above, can you start to see why Newsom must think he has or will soon fix PG&E?
I mean, what utility has the most voluntary power disruptions?
What utility starts half the major conflagrations that California experiences in their service area?
What utility is driving the sale of portable generators in their service area?
What utility is responsible for the homeowner’s insurance crisis in rural areas?
What utility is even less popular than our state legislature?
So, if Newsom and his brothers under the dome have the stones to ban private sector electrical generation and portable fire pumps, then a reasonable person can only conclude that he will fix PG&E, solve fires in our mismanaged forests, and replace the current system with a more reliable and redundant electrical grid.
If Newsom has failed to fix at least these problems, then Newsom and his fellow big city Democrats have said that they are willing to forfeit the lives of everyone in rural areas. Folks this law prevents you from protecting your life and property. It hits the elderly and poor the hardest. People that need to refrigerate insulin or keep the 02 flowing or the AC on when it’s 115 outside, will have to do without. Generators are about more than preserving the stuff you bought at Costco, but shouldn’t you have the right to keep it cold when PG&E’s lawyers tell them to pull the plug on your neighborhood?
Can you imagine the fire department showing up and letting your place burn to the ground with grandma inside because they can’t use their portable fire pump? Or the emergency workers can’t cut you out of the car with their portable equipment because their equipment relies on gasoline?
Does Gavin really not remember all the gasoline powered fire pumps used to keep San Francisco from burning to the ground after the 1989 earthquake during the World Series? Or the emergency equipment used when the elevated portion of the MacArthur freeway collapsed? Why is Gavin the only one that doesn’t have vivid memories of where he was on that day?
So, either Gavin Newsom and his fellow Democrats have fixed all the problems mentioned in this blog or they are willing to kill a lot of people to save us from the myth of global warming. Also, this policy has the effect of preventing poor and middle-class folks from leaving the big cities that Democrats control. Guess rural living is only for the very wealthy—kind of like dining at the French Laundry.
I get it; you’re collectively saying “who?” Raimondo is the former governor of tiny little Rhode Island who “failed upwards” by being anointed Commerce Secretary by the current Democrat Party. I won’t say Joe Biden because we all know he “aint callin’ the shots.” Raimondo who is famous for shutting her state down during Covid, might just be what pure evil is. Like all other Democrat governors and weak-kneed Republican ones, under the fake guise of Covid being the plague, she actually stopped commerce. I guess she deserved promotion?
Raimondo was approved by the Senate and most recently made headlines again for wanting to use the Defense Production Act (DPA) to produce more “electronic chips” like the ones in computers, and most new cars.
“The Biden administration is considering invoking a Cold War-era national security law to force companies in the semiconductor supply chain to provide information on inventory and sales of chips, Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said Thursday.
The goal is to alleviate bottlenecks that have idled U.S. car production and caused shortages of consumer electronics and to identify possible hoarding, she said in an interview.
Her team for months has sought clarity into how companies allocate their semiconductor supply. But previous meetings that convened firms from different industrial sectors haven’t led to increased transparency and many companies have refused to hand over business data to the government.
The Commerce Department is now asking companies to fill out questionnaires within 45 days providing supply chain information. The request is voluntary but Raimondo said she warned industry representatives that she might invoke the Defense Production Act or other tools to force their hands if they don’t respond.
“What I told them is, ‘I don’t want to have to do anything compulsory but if they don’t comply, then they’ll leave me no choice,’” she said. “I said today we’re evaluating all of our options right now, all the tools. I hope not to go there but we need to see some progress and we definitely need compliance.”
I will go ahead and say it. What an evil b***h this women is. Hand over your data to the government? Fill out questionnaires? What the heck is this? Compliance of what? Just remember folks she is from the government, and she is here to help! Big shout out to the “never Trumpers” I say to them I hope they reap what they sow. Things may be bad but at least the Orange Man isn’t tweeting mean things!
If you are wondering, the DPA is a large government order that essentially requires business to adapt and do anything possible to ramp up production of needed materials for national defense. The DPA has been around for since 9/8/1950 around the Korean War I believe. Trump used this during early Covid stages essentially forcing Ford/GM and others to make ventilators since, well every American would be on one…. because Covid.
Now apparently computer chips are a vital national security thing, I guess we need to make sure junior has a faster laptop to play Grand Theft Auto, or my new F-150 super duty can be finally put together. Since you know those are real priorities right now.
My biggest gripes are this. Benevolent Queen Raimondo shut her state down, and kept it shut, not following science, she was following Fauci. Now she wants entire industries to not only work but work harder. Yeah, did you know any person ignoring her decree about DPA is subject to a felony and a $10,000 fine? All while government workers, most corporation’s office staffs, long term unemployed, and executives stay at home, because errrrr Covid. Yeah. Makes no sense to me. Push paper? Well, you can do that at home. Work in a factory? Get your butt to work and prepare for 60-hour work weeks! No time off, no vacation. This is a decree from your benevolent queen.
Sadly, idiots like Raimondo honestly think this decree will help. The worst part is, more and more workers will simply walk off the job, it simply isn’t fair to them to sacrifice while others stay at home. We have seen it play out at Frito Lay and Oreo plants across the country, with workers walking off the job due to conditions and poor work life balance. Sadly, Raimondo and the Democrats will never understand this. Maybe that is why the jobs report wasn’t that great the other day?
Hopefully I can get a chip from China for my new laptop or my new truck soon!
(Editor’s Note: President Trump was accused of xenophobia and hating minorities when he expressed concerns about microchip production being vital to our economy and saying that it should be in the US and not overseas. Raimondo invoking DPA is another case of symbolism over substance. She is grandstanding on an issue which she has no control over. )
Folks we all know that America’s citizens are honest, hard-working folks; just ask any politician. Conversely, we all know that our leaders would sell-out their dear old granny for another term in office. Stuck in the middle are America’s families.
Families are faced with the question of where to send their child/children to college. I know this process can be a daunting task. My son is looking at a college with an annual tuition of $50K plus room and board. Given the high cost of college, perhaps you should rethink college.
Why, you may ask? We have solid proof that college is a waste of money.
How? We have data from people without four-year degrees self-reporting their 2019 earnings to the government. If widely circulated, the data we are about to present would shatter the myth that college is the path to wealth. The data that we are about to present is not manipulated by government bureaucrats or defenders of college. Why encumber yourself with debt when you can earn the wages that we are about to present for more menial jobs?
What you are about to read is data that was randomly collected during a one-week period processing unemployment claims at California’s Employment Development Department. You may ask how I know this stuff is true and all I can tell you is that the following wage information was visually verified by our blog’s staff.
Beauty Operator Apprentice
Bone Cooking Operator
Retail Area Supervisor
Retail Area Supervisor
Retail Area Supervisor
ASC Certified Auto Tech
Business Office Cashier
Account Information Clerk
There it is unequivocal proof that you don’t need college.
Gospel truth, the highest paid person in our list was a maid who made $950,000. I guess that she learned from Al Capone that if you report illicit income, they can’t send you to prison for tax evasion.
The Beauty Operator Apprentice was one that I didn’t recognize. I had to ask the wife. Her understanding of the job is that this babe is the one sweeping up the hair clippings after you get a haircut. I never knew people pushing a broom were paid $65,000.
I tried searching for Abstract Manager on the Internet but came up with nothing that made sense. Given the wage scale, you’d think they were government employees, but we all know that government never lays off anyone. With a pay range of $83K to $300K, it must be a good gig.
The last job that needs special remarks is the General Maintenance/Janitor gig. Please note the wage of $150K. Folks this person claims to have earned this wage in Nevada County California. Per Nevada County statistics, the per capita income for this county in 2018 was just over $37K.
Hopefully by now, you are suspecting that I have withheld some information. If you think this is the case, then you are correct. Remember that I said that these wages were self-reported. This is true but I didn’t say why and therein is the rub. These wages were reported by people applying for California unemployment. The State category in my list is the state the person lives in now. Oh, none of these folks had any reported income on record with the State of California.
Who said crime doesn’t pay? These folks are doing all right or so they would have you believe.
Final thought, I hope this small widow into the fraud making its way thru EDD would be of interest to our readers.
Well, it took about 18 months, but New York finally flattened something. Nope, not Covid, but their governor Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo—once believed to be a top 2024 presidential frontrunner—resigned in disgrace after the floodgates were finally opened about his repeated sexual assaults and harassment. Please don’t confuse the “Luv Gov” with his weightlifter, health nut, Trump hating brother, Chris who doubles at Andrew’s PR guy on CNN. Andrew may wish to take advice from his brother Chris, since it appears the two are father son, more than brothers…. just saying, but now on to the story.
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo was accused back in December of last year of sexual harassment by multiple women. The New York State Assembly started impeachment proceedings in March…. once they found out they weren’t impeaching Trump or seeking his tax returns, they basically folded up and quit the investigation. At the end of February New York AG (Attorney General) Letitia James announced her own investigation into Cuomo. The results and report finally came out on August 10th. Trump would have been impeached about 50 times over in the same amount of time. Justice Kavanaugh ironically was crucified, in less time, with a fraction of the charges, and no evidence at all we remind you.
PDF above is complete New York A.G. Report on Cuomo.
In the meantime, prior to the report from AG James coming out, the entire congressional delegation of New York (it’s pretty big) called on him to resign, both senators, and NYC Mayor and fellow scum bag Bill DeBlasio. It was a rare showing of bipartisanship. Cuomo ignored it, and so did his brother on CNN Chris. Funny because Chris fawned all over his brother during his mishandling of Covid in nursing homes, more on this later.
I was not going to publish the names of the victims, but BLM always says “say their names” so here goes, names and actions of Cuomo:
In late February 2021, Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant and health policy advisor to Cuomo, accused him of sexual harassment, which included questions about her sex life. In a March 5 video interview with CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell, Bennett said that during a one-on-one meeting in the governor’s office on June 5, 2020, Cuomo implied “that I was old enough for him and he was lonely.” Bennett went on to claim that Cuomo’s office director took the state’s mandatory sexual harassment training for him, “I was there. I heard [the office director] say, ‘I can’t believe I’m doing this for you’ and making a joke about the fact that she was completing the training for him. And then I heard her at the end ask him to sign the certificate.”
In early March 2021, a third person, Anna Ruch, a member of the Obama administration (who later served on Joe Biden’spresidential campaign), said that when they were speaking at a wedding reception Cuomo put a hand on her back, that she removed it, and that he then placed his hands on her face cheeks and asked if he could kiss her. A friend photographed Cuomo touching her face.
On March 6, 2021, Ana Liss, a policy and operations aide to Cuomo from 2013 to 2015, became the third former aide to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment. Liss said Cuomo called her “sweetheart,” touched her on her lower back while they were at a reception, and also once kissed her hand after she stood up from her desk.
Also on March 6, Karen Hinton, a former press aide for Cuomo when he served as the US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, said that in 2000, Cuomo had, while meeting with her in a California hotel room, hugged her in an “inappropriate” and “unethical” embrace. Hinton has more recently worked for Cuomo rival New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
On March 9, 2021, the Times Union of Albany reported an anonymous member of the governor’s Executive Chamber staff had accused Cuomo of inappropriate touching. On March 11, the same newspaper reported she said Cuomo called her to his mansion, reached under her blouse, and fondled her. Cuomo denied the allegation.
On April 7, 2021, an unnamed executive assistant to Cuomo alleged that she had been summoned to the governor’s mansion in November 2020 to help Cuomo with a problem with his iPhone. After reaching him, Cuomo allegedly rose from his desk and began groping her. After the aide told him his behavior would get him in trouble, Cuomo then shut the door and said “I don’t care.” He returned and groped one of her breasts under her bra by reaching under her blouse. She then left following the groping. A month later she claimed that Cuomo told her to cover-up what had occurred. Her identity was revealed on August 8, 2021 as Brittany Commisso.
Kaitlin (last name not reported as Jenner)
On March 12, Kaitlin (last name unreported), who formerly worked for the governor’s office, alleged that Cuomo had made her feel uncomfortable in various situations, with his comments, questions, requests, and invasions of her personal space. She did not allege inappropriate touching or explicit sexual propositions.
Jessica Bakeman, a former member of the Capitol press corps who worked for Politico New York, wrote about the atmosphere for women in Albany, New York. On March 12, for the New York magazine website, she wrote that Cuomo had touched her on her arms, shoulders, the small of her back, and waist in 2012, and put his arm around her back and his hand on her waist posing for a picture at a holiday party in 2014 (she wrote that “For years, I would relive that moment at the holiday party”), and made multiple “humiliating” comments during her time covering him. She wrote of the incident in 2014: “Keeping his grip on me as I practically squirmed to get away from him, the governor turned my body to face a different direction for yet another picture. He never let go of my hand.”
On March 18, Valerie Bauman, a reporter for Bloomberg, said in a tweet that during Cuomo’s tenure as New York Attorney General from 2007 to 2010, there was a period of “rampant sexism and sexual harassment.” Cuomo allegedly also made her uncomfortable with unwanted flirting and eye contact. She also claimed that in 2007, upon meeting her, “He took my hand, entered my personal space and looked into my eyes as he announced, ‘Hello, I’m Andrew Cuomo'”.]
On March 19, Alyssa McGrath, the first current employee to come forward publicly, spoke to The New York Times claiming Cuomo chronically ogled female aides like herself, commenting about their appearances in a way McGrath found inappropriate. McGrath also said that the aide who alleged Cuomo sexually assaulted her in the Executive Mansion “described the encounter in detail to her after it was made public in a report in the Times Union last week.” McGrath claimed that Cuomo told her not to talk with the anonymous aide about the incident.
During a March 29, 2021 Zoom news conference with an attorney, Sherry Vill alleged that Cuomo kissed her cheek in front of family members while inspecting her flood-damaged house during a May 28, 2017 visit to her Rochester-area home following a flood. Vill said the kiss was of a “highly sexual manner.” Cuomo also kissed Vill for a second time on the cheek outside her home in a “very aggressive manner.”
Unnamed state trooper
According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met the state trooper in November 2017 and lobbied to hire her as part of his security detail despite her not satisfying the requirements for the post; she was indeed hired, and Cuomo later inappropriately touched her stomach and back, and also made inappropriate comments.
First unnamed state entity employee
According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met this unnamed state entity employee at an event in September 2019, where he tapped and grabbed her buttocks while they were posing for photographs.
Second unnamed state entity employee
According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo in March 2020 made inappropriate comments to this unnamed state entity employee, a doctor, who had administered a nasal swab test on Cuomo at a press conference.
According to the August 2021 report, Cuomo met energy company employee Virginia Limmiatis at an event in May 2017, where he touched her chest with his fingers.
Governor Cuomo finally stepped down 8/24, but on his way out, he commuted the sentences of 4 murderers, which tells me he will be running for something again soon, likely DA. I say this because it seems like a pre-requisite to brandish your anti-law enforcement, pro crime policies to make yourself desirable to the Democrat base. (It worked in Los Angeles so why not?) Whilst doing so, he basically said he was innocent, and this was all one big witch hunt. Isn’t call this a “witch hunt” a sexist way of saying it was the women’s fault not his?
My commentary on this is simple but may come off as male chauvinist. First off Cuomo is wealthy, son of a former governor (Mario) and has been in politics quite literally his whole life. He should be able to get with almost any women he wants, it shouldn’t be that hard. (Didn’t we recently write about a mayor that behaved like this? — editor) Why the harassment? And by the way I read quite a bit of the AG report, he is a gross sicko of a human. Telling aides and staffers to “sit on his lap” like he is some shopping mall Santa Clause?
This guy literally seemed to make lewd comments or gestures with any member of the opposite sex he came in contact with. It truly is a stunning fall from grace for a man who could have been governor until he didn’t want it anymore. Especially with all the favorable press he got during Covid.
Speaking of Covid did anyone see how the new governor, Kathy Hochul, on her first day on the job released the “real number” of deaths in nursing homes under Cuomo’s rule? Yeah, it’s an additional 12,000. Yup, now it makes sense … all the refrigerated trucks. What a low life scumbag this guy was. Not only did he kill your grandparents/parents he then lied and covered it up.
Not to be outdone, Joe Biden said Cuomo did a great job as governor. This just begs for comparing trapped Americans in Afghanistan with trapped Americans in New York nursing homes.
Kind of ironic, all his harassment and assaults of women….to think he was replaced with New York’s first women governor. LOL
BTW that headline…. kind of Babylon Bee worthy, isn’t it?
So, this past Saturday was the California Republican Party Gubernatorial recall election endorsing convention. It was not held in a hotel or conference room it was done virtually.
Folks, the CAGOP has been misrun for years, and yet no one seems to really care. You had Tom Del Beccaro drinking to excess and using the delegate list as a dating service, Ron Nehring who flew frequently to Australia; not trying to start or fuel a rumor but I heard there was a mistress involved here. I do not know much about Jim Brulte or his reign, but I know the party no longer has any money. We now have first Latinx chair Jessica Millan Patterson, and to say she is a disaster is putting it mildly. Patterson makes over $250k a year, her counterpart in the very much dominant Democrat Party makes less than half that.
But on to the endorsing convention.
First of all, why is the party endorsing a candidate? It’s a non-partisan race, due to it being a recall. The party should only take an endorsement of; Yes to recall Comrade Newsom. Let the chips fall where they may after. Well for some reason, a rumor was started that former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer wanted an endorsement, it was parroted around as if it were gospel. Faulconer did not want the endorsement; actually, no candidate did. This was being pushed from the inside of the party headquarters, by Shawn Steel, Harmeet Dhillon, and Jessica Patterson. Again, Faulconer did not want to seek the endorsement, and frankly why would he want to? Registration is at 24% statewide, it’s a kiss of death.
So, the week of the convention, a movement started to have a “no endorsement vote” which led to a direct appeal from Shawn Steel and Harmeet Dhillion (there are those names again) to not endorse. The convention started and literally only half the delegates showed up to vote, roughly 800. This is due to the CAGOP making delegates pay $50 for the right to cast their vote. I call this a pole tax, yet 800 willingly paid. The motion to not endorse passed overwhelmingly with about 80% or so voting in favor. Steel and Dhillon were revered as folks who “stopped the steal;” however, the reality is that they were the conductors of this scheme. You see, the party charged $50 per delegate which times 800 equals roughly $40K they raised. Since the convention was virtual there were virtually zero expenses. Thankfully half the delegates didn’t fall for this pay to play tax scheme, sadly the other half did.
Faulconer did not want the endorsement just to say it again. This was a drill run by Jessica Patterson via her Lieutenant’s Dhillon and Steel. You see Dhillon is a former ACLU lawyer who once was viewed as unacceptable to be vice chair of the party however she was elected and has since been re-elected. Shawn Steel is the husband of Congressperson (we don’t do gender here) Michelle Park Steel. Better known to me as the serpent from the Garden of Eden. Where there is money, endorsements, or power; you can always see Steel slithering around. But the delegates and party continue to elect these folks as they now serve as national committee delegates. Sheep do sheep things.
Congrats on paying $50 to endorse no one and taking the principled stand against a candidate who didn’t even want the endorsement. Hope this all works out but it sounds like the party made money, consultants likely made money, and you parted with $50. Aaron Park put it on his blog the convention lasted so short the price per minute made phone sex a cheaper alternative. (His words not mine.) Is it a wonder why several GOP elected’s always seem to side with the Democrats on tax hikes and the party doesn’t care? The party apparatus just taxed their own activists, and they didn’t seem to care either. Where is the outrage!
Cable must have broken an extended family member of mine. I do not know what is worse, him saying that only Republicans aren’t getting vaccinated or that he may actually believe this. First of all, you cannot be more ignorant or out of touch, secondly this is flat not true.
First of all, what happened to “my body, my choice”? Also, what happened to “this is a Trump vaccine, and we don’t support it”? Well, to answer the first, my body, my choice is only true with abortions, the second…well the dead turned out and Biden won. Now it’s his vaccine!
Let’s just delve into the vaccination stats on a state-by-state basis if you will. Let’s start with California, since the World Headquarters of Reallyright.com is domiciled there. This handy-dandy map I’m linking shows the percentage of folks fully vaccinated.
CA checks in at 47% and change. I’m no Rhoades Scholar, but GOP registration in CA is 23% not 53%. Additionally, let’s delve into our home county, Sacramento. Specifically, I will hone in on North Highlands, specifically 95660 zip code.
The County tool shows 40% as of this past weekend. I pick on North Highlands as it has a very large black population, again, not GOP voters. If you wish to get technical, the southernmost zip codes; the delta, Rio Vista, etc, show north of 70% inoculation, these are GOP areas.
My point here is this has nothing to do with party registration at all; it’s ignorant to think it does. President Trump was more than willing to tout the vaccine, even getting the jab on live TV to prove its safety. Joe Biden and others have made this political.It breaks down multiple ways, as such Democrats cannot process it since liberalism is a brain disease.
First the older folks were/have been cooped up by their kids during the height of the lockdowns the shots bought their freedom, most older folks skew Republican.
Secondly the working folks who travel, they received the shot in large numbers since most places require it for you to fly anymore. While you could produce a negative test, they likely would create more hoops to jump through. Again, these are folks who work, so likely skewing heavily GOP here.
People who work in government buildings, this will be a mixed bag as rules still provide work from home options, this likely brings the average down, as if one works from home, he doesn’t interact with others.
Here are the problem areas.
Folks who are black; there is a heavy distrust in their government here when it comes to vaccinations. I know several who vote Democrat (oh god the horror) who refuse to be vaccinated. This is a very large Democrat voting bloc, don’t believe me, nut its true.
Folks who are Hispanic; same as above, but also add in the immigration issue. This group tends to work extremely hard and can ill afford for a complication to take them out of commission for even a day or two. Again, this group votes heavily Democrat.
This is not a blog to highlight racial tensions, it’s just to show how ignorant some folks are when it comes to vaccinations. Personally, I would peg the figures like this.
Folks over 65: 80% or more are fully vaccinated Folks over 55: 75% or more vaccinated 25-45 demographic: 20% or less. Remember this group “can’t die from Covid” and aren’t likely to even get sick from it. 18-25: Folks at a public college or university will skew the numbers higher, but I do not see high figures here either.
Well, that is not an easy question, and I certainly won’t have the answer after these messages from our advertisers. The answer also certainly isn’t in that click bait article you found on Yahoo News. Additionally, it won’t be on your cable debate show were a left and right pundit lock horns for a segment and both declare victory afterwards. The answer is easy to see, but hard to explain.
We are suffering in the overall economy; you just cannot see it yet.
First of all, we have to go back to the “essential workers only economy” this started the issue. If you were really an essential worker; food operations, manufacturing, grocery etc. type jobs you were required to come to work, no days off and usually mandatory overtime. Ask any grocery store worker, or someone at a slaughterhouse, or who makes toilet paper/Clorox wipes. These folks are burned out after doing that for a year, and rightfully so. They need a break; some in these fields are even quitting their jobs or leaving their fields all together. So, you have a slight shortage as folks are tired, I can’t blame them.
Next you have the supply/demand issue. As you may have forgotten, we closed down dine in, this essentially shut down food suppliers; think USFoods, Sysco and Restaurant Supply Co. Contrary to public belief, manufacturing lines/plants aren’t convertible, meaning you can’t change the toilet paper from commercial grade 1-ply to household based 2-ply by flipping a switch. Food service works the same way. The companies named earlier specialize in selling cases of food product to parks, restaurants, correction facilities and institutions, not a grocery store. While most still would argue corporations are large enough, a company like Kraft can innovate on the fly, they can’t. As a result, you had a supply chain meltdown, which is continuing to this day, as you can see with food prices. I will touch on that later.
The employment shortage is a massive issue right now. Yes, it is 2 pronged; first of all, you have the aforementioned overworked employees. Additionally, you have the workers who were laid off and collected the Trump/Biden extra money on top of unemployment. You may notice I blame Trump. Yes, he signed it into law. I also believe he was given awful advice by his aides. Either way, those folks are slowly coming back to work, but most are holding out since, well… its free extra money and the American Dream—according to the Democrats—is living at home and being paid not to work. This creates a far bigger problem than any other factor so far mentioned in this blog post.
The issue at hand is that experienced workers are not reporting back. You may not believe it, but a waiter doesn’t get their start at The Capital Grill Steakhouse, they get it at a local diner or short order chain restaurant. As a result, the top tier chains are having an impossible time finding help, leading to bigger issues down line. Just today I went to Chili’s. The place was 100% open, but the staff was non-existent, the bartender was also waiting all tables in the bar area, as well as cleaning! The lack of experience showed, but I cannot blame her, she doesn’t have help. I saw other folks giving her an earful, several of which were old enough to know better. The place had at least 3 signs that I counted, they are desperate for workers.
Which brings me full circle. The businesses now have to pay very high starting wages to low skilled workers. I saw a McDonalds speaker box advertising $17.50 an hour starting pay. A McDonalds, in a city of 175,000. That is likely the person working the till, what do you pay the line cook? Fry cook? Assistant manager and Manager? Are we going to see $85K a year managing a McDonalds in the suburbs? In reality, the wages are necessary as one must coax the folks at home on the sofa watching daytime TV to get back to work. Which means you must beat Uncle Sam’s $300 a week kicker to your paycheck. As a result of this, you see price increases that are only going to get worse. You see, most businesses hedge on food expenses meaning they lock into a long-term deal, at a fixed price. Well, “Force Majeure” is a fancy term for an event outside of your control that allows you to cancel a contract and get out of it. Due to Covid, suppliers invoked this contract clause. You didn’t really feel it at first since it was only grocery stores loading up on food. Now we see businesses re-opening trying to load up on goods as well. We haven’t even really seen the return of concerts, weddings or the like yet. These put upward pressure on food. A lack of workers puts upward pressure on wages, which increases food costs.
Think of it this way, Slaughterhouse USA can process 10,000 burgers in a day. That is not problem when they are selling to grocery clients, and a few restaurants doing mostly take out. When demand picks up, they can still only produce 10,000 patties, so now the grocer, the takeout business which is ramping up, the fine dining business, and others are bidding for the 10,000 patties. But my slaughterhouse is short workers who want to vacation/quit/breaks, so now I’m under pressure to produce 10,000 patties a day. A tall order when there are only about 4 producers of beef in the economy, this was due to merger and acquisition activity. Now due to a supply, demand, and labor shortage, price inflation is nuts. Don’t believe me, a friend who is a big shot at a food supply company told me he can’t believe what he is seeing, and says it’s going to get worse. Consider this a lesson as to why the 90-day calendar does not allow for any deviation from the mean from business. We saw this coming, and couldn’t keep up, as a result we will pay the price.
Enjoy your $20 fish and chips, with no drink mind you… Seriously check out the menu at Mimi’s Café.
Editor’s Note: Mimi’s official online menu does not have any prices on it or I would have posted the link. In my experience, when a menu has no prices and you have to ask, you better go somewhere else that you can afford.
In what passes for journalism and reporting in the 24/7 news cycle, it doesn’t matter if you are right, it matters if you report it first. Don’t believe me? Just watch the local or even major news networks as they stumble over each other to be “first.” They do not care about the truth as long as they can strike first blood in the ratings war. If they are wrong, they will ignore it, brush it under the table, blame an anonymous “source,” or issue a retraction several days later on the page where the obituaries are listed. Ironic as those listed in that section are brand new Democrat voters!
Now to the story which prompted my ire. On June 19th in Wilton Manor (Ft Lauderdale) the Stonewall Democrats (a far left LBGTQIAHSUHNCKMAHNXLANAETS 1 issue club) had their annual Pride Parade. Present were Congressperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Ft Lauderdale mayor Dean Trantalis. The parade was a typical one, floats, bands, walking, etc. The procession was about to begin when a white pickup truck rammed into the waiting participants killing 1 and injuring 2.
All would agree this is a tragedy, now to my point….. Trantalis, like most Democrats, are far superior to the unwashed so he decided to run to the press with this statement.
“This is a terrorist attack against the LGBT community,” Trantalis told Local 10 News. “This is exactly what it is. Hardly an accident. It was deliberate, it was premeditated, and it was targeted against a specific person. Luckily they missed that person, but unfortunately, they hit two other people.”
Of course, the folks at MSNBC ran with it. I happened to see their report while paying a visit to a local gym. The narrative quickly turned into a white male driver (this part was true) Trump supporter who hates gay rights rammed the parade. Only things left out were “MAGA hat wearing, AR-15 holding, male making out with wife, mows down pride parade participants.” Wasserman-Schultz was devastated, the parade was cancelled. It wasn’t until the following day when things got a little more clear. The man driving the car was a white male, 77-year-old Fred Johnson Jr. His truck emblazoned with a rainbow-colored pride flag flying from it. MSNBC doctored the photo to not show the flag; remember it’s about optics and a narrative, truth before facts folks. Johnson Jr. was later shown wearing a pride shirt and was identified as “one of us” by members of the gay man’s chorus. Johnson Jr. has a handicap, so he was chosen to drive for the parade. Maybe not such a great idea looking back on it?
Once the facts started leaking out, the Democrat media machine took over. This was much ado about nothing, and an unfortunate accident. The police began to investigate, I find this odd since police types are generally not allowed near Democrat events…oh wait it as a white man who did the deed…proceed! The men’s chorus even put out this statement, because well … it was just an unfortunate thing.
“This was a horrible accident,” he said. “I offer my sincere regret to those who were impacted. I love my chorus family and the community. I would never do anything to intentionally harm anyone.”
Trantalis issued a kind of apology, mostly just walking it back slightly, and now it’s all a non-story. Mostly because it doesn’t fit the narrative any longer. Why beat on one of their own, it’s more fun to do it to the other side. End of story. Anyone wonder why the ratings for left leaning news, and readership of daily newspapers are falling fast? There is your answer.
Let me now offer my “first take” on this story, and if I’m wrong, we may or may not issue a retraction, but if the libs can do it, I will too.
Far left deranged, whacko, white, male, Fred Johnson Jr. fled his old person home, revved up his truck, overdosed on opioids, and rammed a far-left demonstration. Johnson was unhappy about his role in the gay man’s chorus and decided he had enough. He rammed 5 innocent folks, killing 1, seriously injuring four. He was aiming for the mayor and congresswomen but like most Democrats, his aim was horrific. Johnson, for his part, admitted being gay afterwards, but everyone knows that’s just a lie. His actions led to a far-right militia of folks to show up with lights flashing and the words “police” inscribed on their cars. Thankfully no black or brown folks were around as massacre would have taken place.
Johnson must be held accountable for his actions. As a white man, this was a hate crime, and it took place on June 19, the new federal holiday to celebrate Juneteenth, as a result he must hate black people. Sentence him to death ASAP, no trial, no counsel to be provided. This deranged human must be wiped from earth. Also, Johnson Jr. needs to pay reparations for what he did, on Juneteenth mind you!
On a recent call, the General Counsel or the California Republican Party claimed there was NO fraud or corruption in the November 2020 election in California. The CRP Chair, Jessica Patterson has not refuted that claim. By NOY suing to stop live ballots, 440,000, going to dead people and those living outside of the Sate, the California Republican Party has normalized corrupt elections in California. We also found that 3500 Californians voted in the November election is California and Nevada—but neither government nor the GOP can find any corruption. Now this:
“Approximately 3,000 mail-in ballots counted in the Nov. 3 election were supposedly cast by UCSB students residing in a voting precinct that, along with other dorm buildings, includes the Francisco Torres/Santa Catalina Residence Hall at 6850 El Colegio Road in Goleta.
Problem: Due to COVID-19, the Torres Building, which normally accommodates 1,300 students, was empty and locked down through most of 2020, as were all other UCSB dorms.
This means no students/voters were residing inside the Torres Building (nor any of the other dorms) during the election season.
Thomas Cole of Analytics 805, which monitors elections, uncovered the Goleta precinct’s voting irregularities during the course of his routine analysis. Alarmed by the phantom ballots he’d pinpointed, Mr. Cole called the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office for advice on how to file a criminal complaint alleging Fraud Corruption of the Voting Process.
The D.A.’s Office directed him to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office.
Mr. Cole’s subsequent complaint, filed with the Sheriff’s Office, alleges that:
Someone in charge of the mail at the building illegally filled out those ballots for the students and sent all those ballots directly back to the election board, which is a felony.
Someone in charge of or with access to the ballots and signature machines simply ignored the phony signatures on the ballots returned from the Torres Building, which is a felony.
Or officials turned off the signature inspection machine.
Or officials lowered the threshold of the machine inspection on the Torres Building precinct ballots, thus allowing the approximate 3,000 fraudulent ballots to be counted, a felony.
Only a student actually residing in the Torres Building during October-November 2020 could have received a ballot to vote. And since the building was closed and locked down, that is impossible.
Thus, the 3,000 votes counted from the Torres Building are illegal.
When Fulton County, Ga., poll manager Suzi Voyles sorted through a large stack of mail-in ballots last November, she noticed an alarmingly odd pattern of uniformity in the markings for Joseph R. Biden. One after another, the absentee votes contained perfectly filled-in ovals for Biden — except that each of the darkened bubbles featured an identical white void inside them in the shape of a tiny crescent, indicating they’d been marked with toner ink instead of a pen or pencil.
Adding to suspicions, she noticed that all of the ballots were printed on different stock paper than the others she handled as part of a statewide hand recount of the razor-thin Nov. 3 presidential election. And none was folded or creased, as she typically observed in mail-in ballots that had been removed from envelopes.
In short, the Biden votes looked like they’d been duplicated by a copying machine.
“All of them were strangely pristine,” said Voyles, who said she’d never seen anything like it in her 20 years monitoring elections in Fulton County, which includes much of Atlanta.
She wasn’t alone. At least three other poll workers observed the same thing in stacks of absentee ballots for Biden processed by the county, and they have joined Voyles in swearing under penalty of perjury that they looked fake.
What do we do when it appears, later than we like, that the 2020 election was thrown after all?
The latest story from Just the News is that the Georgia audit documents expose “significant election failures” in the state’s largest county.
“Documents that Georgia’s largest county submitted to state officials as part of a post-election audit highlight significant irregularities in the Atlanta area during last November’s voting, ranging from identical vote tallies repeated multiple times to large batches of absentee ballots that appear to be missing from the official ballot-scanning records,” said the story.
This is big. And coupled with Arizona early results of an audit conducted in Maricopa County, Wisconsin, which apparently shows more votes than voters, Pennsylvania’s anomalies, Michigan and several other states, it’s really looking like Donald Trump won the 2020 election – and probably broke Joe Biden’s crooked record.
To put it into perspective, the irregularities in predominantly Democratic Fulton County, Georgia, could impact thousands of ballots in a race that was initially certified by fewer that 12,000 votes.
And the real surprise is that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s own private contractor commissioned the report. He probably lied to “60 Minutes” when he claimed Georgia had conducted its most sacred kind of election.
The memos included the handwritten tally sheets for all absentee ballots counted by the county as well as a private report that chronicled seven days of problems and recorded troubling behavior like the mysterious removal of a suitcase of sensitive election data known as polls pads, used to authenticate voters.
The revelations come as a state judge has taken the extraordinary step of ordering absentee ballots in the county unsealed so that a private audit led by lawyer Bob Cheeley can examine the actual papers and resolve discrepancies. Cheeley told Just the News on Wednesday the evidence he has seen so far points to “election tabulation malpractice.”
* More than 100 batches of absentee ballots – each containing approximately 100 or more ballots — were assigned tracking numbers before being sent to one of the five absentee vote-counting machines in Fulton County but are not subsequently recorded in the handwritten logs showing which batches were scanned and counted, raising concerns the ballots may be missing.
* More than two dozen batches of absentee ballots were identified as having been double-scanned as actual votes.
* Five sequential batches of absentee votes each appeared with the exact same vote count of 392 for Biden, 96 for Donald Trump, and three for the libertarian candidate, which defy all odds.
* Many control sheets for absentee ballot batches counted during the state’s audit did not check a box indicating the ballot came from a secure container, raising the possibility that ballots were stored insecurely or that multiple batches of ballots were sealed in a single container.
Led by longtime Georgia poll watcher Garland Favorito, founder of VoterGA.org, the court petitioners say the state has failed to inform the judge overseeing their case that they broke the chain of custody over the pallets of shrink-wrapped absentee ballots warehoused in a locked county facility in Atlanta.
“If the secretary of state’s office did that, they tampered with the ballots and violated Georgia state law,” which restricts the handling of ballots to authorized elections officials involved in the tabulation and care of the ballots, Favorito said. He also noted that Judge Amero had placed the ballots under a protective order in January. “They would have had to ask for a court order to unseal and inspect those ballots and they never did that.”
The state of Pennsylvania has removed over 20,000 deceased voters from being able to vote following a settled lawsuit filed by The Public Interest Legal Foundation.
The suit, filed in November, alleged that at least 21,000 deceased individuals were still on voter rolls during the 2020 presidential election. Data compiled by the Watchdog group showed that more than 9,200 of the people registered had been dead for at least five years, in addition to nearly 1,990 that had been dead for 10 years. An estimated 197 voters were dead for at least twenty years.
“This marks an important victory for the integrity of elections in Pennsylvania,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “The Commonwealth’s failure to remove deceased registrants created a vast opportunity for voter fraud and abuse. It is important to not have dead voters active on the rolls for 5, 10, or even 20 years. This settlement fixes that.”
But what about the forensic audits in the key contested states? Starting with Arizona, then Georgia, then Pennsylvania, then…
The forensic audit of the popular votes in Arizona being conducted right now is intriguing and also a little scary. The forensic audit of the popular votes should be able to catch and identify voting irregularities, cheating, abnormalities, and felonious actions. What happens if not only Arizona flips, but also Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin?
The vote-winning margins in these four states were about 1%, or even much less. Not a whole lot of cheating and theft required to flip the states, if that is what actually historically happened. With Arizona’s 11 Electoral College votes, with Georgia’s 16, with Pennsylvania’s 20, and with Wisconsin’s 10, if those slim margins went to President Trump rather than Biden, the Electoral College vote would be 289 votes for Trump and just 249 for Biden. With Trump needing only 270 for the win, maybe that is why the Progressives are so determined that the forensic audits should not happen. Maybe that is why the Deep State cabal does not want light to shine in on the actual votes last November.
Folks, its not that I don’t believe the election was stolen but that nobody will voluntarily give-up the power. If Biden leaves the White House before the end of his term, it will be feet first in a bag with a zipper. Then we get President Harris or Pelosi, either of which will be worse than Hidin’ Biden. We are in the decline for our republic, whoever the President is the biblical lament applies that President X “did more evil in the eyes of the Lord than any of those before him.”
