Still wrong after all these years
"Later today, I will once more return to the hallowed ground of Yad Vashem to honor the six million Jewish lives that were stolen in a genocide and continue — which we must do every, every day — continue to bear witness, to keep alive the truth and honor of the Holocaust — horror of the Holocaust — honor those we lost, so that we never, ever forget that lesson, you know, and to continue our shared, unending work to fight the poison of antisemitism wherever it raises its ugly head

President Bidens's first visit to the middle east has been fraught with chaos and danger. The trip began with a visit to Israel on Wednesday where he was expected to observe a policy of not shaking hands with the people he met due to concerns regarding COVID-19. He started out with hand bumps, but that didn't last long and he eventually began shaking hands. There was not much business done with Israel since Israel, no matter who the leader is will never accept the idiotic Iran deal that Obama dreamed up and Biden the puppet is pursuing. Both nations know that Biden will also attempt to prevent a preemptive strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. To add insult to injury, Biden screwed up when talking/babbling about the Holocaust. Believe it or not, Biden said people should keep alive  "the honor of the Holocaust"  before quickly correcting himself.

He will also meet with the Palestinians. Remember when American middle east "experts" thought the Palestinians were the key to the middle east problem? That was until Donald Trump came along. Then came the Abraham Accords. Well, it seems Joe is still concerned about them. To help the now broke Palestinian Authority, President Biden is expected to announce U.S. funding for Palestinian hospitals that had been cut by President Trump.

On Friday, Biden is due in Saudi Arabia which Biden once called a "Pariah." He is there to swallow his woke pride and beg for oil. In the meantime he has given oil from the US strategic reserve to countries like China.

One more thing, the wonderful state of Iran, which Biden had been courting issued a warning today: TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s hard-line president issued a broad threat Thursday against the United States and Israel, warning them of a “harsh and regrettable response” to any action against the Islamic Republic.

What did Robert Gates say about Biden?

I believe Gates famously said that Biden had been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue.




The Week:

The knives are out for Biden : "A new sign of  a flailing President Biden being abandoned   and overlooked by his Democratic Party is the increased public exposure of leftist figures seen as potential successors in what would be a rare first-term primary battle in 2024.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who recently survived a recall effort in defeating Los Angeles conservative Larry Elder, was seen at the White House this week while Biden has been in Jerusalem in what Fox News host Jesse Watters equated to "measuring the drapes" at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.

Watters and others took note of Newsom's behavior during the visit, wherein he casually took off his suit jacket to traipse around the White House grounds in view of the press cameras and passers-by – rather than discreetly entering and exiting to conduct his business.

We all knew it would happen. The democrats are going to dump the proxy they built up in 2020. The funny part is they intend to replace him with people pushing the same radical policies.


The story the left promoted but never verified: It seems the single sourced report by abortion doctor and activist Dr. Caitlin Bernard got quite a few details wrong. Here is another:

"The Guatemalan illegal immigrant charged with raping and impregnating an Ohio 10-year-old who traveled to Indiana for an abortion was listed as a minor in the report the Indiana-based abortionist sent to authorities. 

Dr. Caitlin Bernard reported that the alleged rapist was approximately 17-years-old in an official filing to the Indiana Department of Health obtained Thursday by Fox News Digital. On Wednesday, Ohio authorities  charged 27-year-old Gerson Fuentes , an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, with rape of a minor under 13 years old in the case.

Fuentes confessed to the crime to Columbus Police Department investigators, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said in a statement Wednesday."

New US Woke Military is having trouble finding recruits:  " These are tough times for military recruiting. Almost across the board, the armed forces are experiencing large shortfalls in enlistments this year — a deficit of thousands of entry-level troops that is on pace to be worse than any since just after the Vietnam War. It threatens to throw a wrench into the military’s machinery, leaving critical jobs unfilled and some platoons with too few people to function."

https://dnyuz.com/2022/07/14/with-few-able-and-fewer-willing-u-s-military-cant-find-recruits/

General Mark Milley is worried about "white rage." Evidently that's how he got promoted.


More economic bad news:  Inflation has risen to 9% and rents rose in the US last month at the fastest pace since 1986. Wholesale prices are up over 11%. Gas prices are still through the roof and 401k's are eroding as is savings. The Biden ship is sinking fast and his agenda is imploding. Democrats hope to make the next election about Jan 6th and abortion. How stupid do they think we are?

In addition:

"Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and his staff told  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer,  D, N.Y., unequivocally Thursday that he is only willing to support a reconciliation bill in August that includes a provision to lower prescription drugs prices and a two-year extension of subsidies for the Affordable Care Act, according to a Democrat briefed on the conversations. 

Manchin was explicit that he won't support a bill before the midterms with any provisions on energy and climate or closing tax loopholes exploited by the wealthy and biggest corporations, despite his support for those specific things during months of negotiations.  
Democrats had hoped to  pass a sweeping package  to tout during the midterms."

"Ivana Trump,  is dead. 

Ms. Trump was well-known for decades in New York social circles afte’s first wife, has died, her family said. She was 73.r Presr she married Mr. Trump, then a brash businessman, in the late 1970s. She left the former Czechoslovakia, where she was born, then found fame as a New York socialite and an executive in the Trump Organization. The former model and Mr. Trump had three children: Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric. The couple’s divorce in the early 1990s became a messy drama, detailed in the New York tabloids. It even spawned a cameo in the 1996 film “The First Wives Club,” where she delivered the zinger: “Don’t get mad; get everything.”


Mr. Trump wrote in a statement on Truth Social, a social media platform he launched this year, that Ms. Trump died at her home in New York."

What have we learned?

Democrats have proved to be far too extreme on social issues and deadly on economic ones. Joe Biden has now learned the cost of the radical policies he implemented. Democrats hope to turn it around with talk of Trump. They obviously are hoping that Donald Trump runs again. The very man who achieved energy independence for the US and produced a thriving economy right up until China unleashed a pandemic and Dr Fauci recommended shutting down the economy. Today an economic disaster is staring us in the face. I think most people have learned their lesson. Come November, we will cover election night live right here for all those who have the guts to watch the results come in.

The Secret Service is being investigated for corrupt affiliation with Donald Trump.

The Secret Service denied deleting Jan. 6-related text messages with malicious intent after the Department of Homeland Security inspector general accused the agency of deleting some of the messages after a records request.

In a   letter , published by CNN on Thursday, to the leaders of both the Senate and the House Homeland Security Committees, DHS Inspector General Joseph Cuffari wrote, "First, the Department notified us that many U.S. Secret Service (USSS) text messages, from January 5 and 6, 2021, were erased as part of a device-replacement program."

The watchdog head stated that the Secret Service "erased those text messages   after   OIG requested records of electronic communications from the USSS, as part of our evaluation of events at the Capitol on January 6."

Cuffari also noted, "DHS personnel have repeatedly told OIG inspectors that they were not permitted to provide records directly to OIG and that such records had to first undergo review by DHS attorneys. This review led to weeks-long delays in OIG obtaining records and created confusion over whether all records had been produced."

Mississippi Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of both the House Homeland Security Committee and the Jan. 6 committee,   promised   that the Capitol riot panel "will be briefed about this extraordinarily troubling destruction of records and respond accordingly."

Secret Service Communications Chief Anthony Guglielmi vehemently defended the agency in a   press release   Thursday after the letter was published.

"The insinuation that the Secret Service maliciously deleted text messages following a request is false. In fact, the Secret Service has been fully cooperating with the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG) in every respect – whether it be interviews, documents, emails, or texts," he wrote, going on to explain that the some phone data was lost during a pre-planned technology system change over the course of three months. 

"DHS OIG requested electronic communications for the first time on Feb. 26, 2021,   after   the migration was well under way. The Secret Service notified DHS OIG of the loss of certain phones’ data, but confirmed to OIG that none of the texts it was seeking had been lost in the migration," the communications chief stated.

"Second, DHS OIG’s allegation regarding DHS’s cooperation with its investigation is neither correct nor new. To the contrary, DHS OIG has previously alleged that its employees were not granted appropriate and timely access to materials due to attorney review," he said. "DHS has repeatedly and publicly debunked this allegation, including in response to OIG’s last two semi-annual reports to Congress. It is unclear why OIG is raising this issue again."

Earlier in the day, a Secret Service official told Congress that the inspector general was investigating the testimony of former Trump White House aide  Cassidy Hutchinson  to the Jan. 6 committee.

The budget mess and inflation is all Biden's fault.

The budget didn't cause inflation. That is not how it works. First of all, the entire western world economy is suffering from inflation. The euro is at a 40 year low and equivalent to the dollar. Both England and Italy have dumped their governments over inflation. The truth is, our inflation was caused by many factors, like supply delays, over-consumer spending, the war in Ukraine, gas shortages world wide, to name a few.

It is normal to dump on the guy in office, but it is not factual in this case.

What Causes Inflation?

There are three main causes of inflation: demand-pull inflation, cost-push inflation, and built-in inflation.

  • Demand-pull inflation   refers to situations where there are not enough products or services being produced to keep up with demand, causing their prices to increase.
  • Cost-push inflation , on the other hand, occurs when the cost of producing products and services rises, forcing businesses to raise their prices.
  • Built-in inflation   (which is sometimes referred to as a wage-price spiral) occurs when workers demand higher wages to keep up with rising living costs. This in turn causes businesses to raise their prices in order to offset their rising wage costs, leading to a self-reinforcing loop of wage and price increases.

We were already in serious debt. There was nothing wrong with sending out relief checks in the midst of a pandemic, but $Trillion dollar spending bills were bound to overheat the economy. Top reason: The $1.9 trillion reckless spending this all-Democratic government passed on a party-line basis last year. Even Larry Summers, Clinton's economist, warned Biden. The Great Milton Friedman wrote about it. Biden didn't just enact massive spending bills, he's spent via his ridiculous EO's as well. Then of course, is his war on US oil. That was the other part of this.

The oil industry is just as much a partner to any problems we are having internally with gas. They have reported record profits off of our backs. The war has done much more damage. Biden has given out more leases for drilling than Trump did, too, and much to the chagrin of ecological groups:

Does Higher Government Spending Cause Inflation? Details (marketrealist.com)

As U.S. inflation has risen to a multi-decade high, many have been trying to apportion the blame for the price rise. Some blame the Federal Reserve’s delay in raising interest rates while others blame the massive government spending over the last two years. Does high government spending cause inflation?

First, we should understand that inflation is rising globally. Both developing as well as developed countries are grappling with above-average inflation. While U.S. inflation is higher than that of many other developed countries, some of the other countries have even higher inflation.

What causes inflation?

Many factors cause inflation, including a demand-supply mismatch and higher input costs. When demand is higher than supply, traditional finance tells us that prices rise. Similarly, when companies see a rise in input costs, they have few options but to raise prices.

Government spending adds to inflation.

Higher government spending can either be backed by taxes or fuelled by debt (including issuing more currency). Spending backed by the issuance of new currency instead of taxes is typically inflationary in nature.

The U.S. government spending has risen by trillions of dollars since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The government provided stimulus to the economy, including stimulus checks to individuals. These came at a time when we already had a global supply chain crisis and a shortage of several products.

Arguably, the stimulus was the need of the hour. The U.S. economy needed support to pull out of the pandemic. However, one side effect has also been inflation. As people had more money without a commensurate increase in the supply of goods and services, we saw an increase in inflation.

Also, many argue that the fiscal stimulus impacted the U.S. labor market as many people stopped looking out for work due to increased federal support. This amplified the labor shortage situation in the country and added to inflation.

‘I Was Wrong’: Biden’s Treasury Sec Admits She Bungled Inflation Prediction (shorenewsnetwork.com)

When Blitzer asked if it was a mistake to “downplay” the risk of inflation, Yellen responded that unforeseen factors such as a new strain of COVID-19 and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine complicated her earlier predictions.

“As I mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices and supply bottlenecks that have affected our economy badly that I didn’t –at the time– fully understand, but we recognize that now,” Yellen said.

Yellen said she believed the Federal Reserve could curb inflation by increasing interest rates and shrinking its stockpile of treasury bonds.

The administration would work with Congress to boost the use of renewable energy to lower utility bills, Yellen said during the interview.

"THIS" administration doesn't have a clue !

But that does not increase inflation, as I showed you. People do not spend or not spend and business don't operate on what the gov spends. Now if we were printing money that would be a different story, but we are not.

When the US economy sneezes, the world economy gets Pneumonia.

We affect the world but not that much. More can be said about China, who is a producer country... Inflation is always based on supply/demand and workforce.

And for the record, inflation in the US has totally different causes than that in Europe:

The headline inflation numbers are increasingly similar—around 8% in both the U.S. and Europe—but the causes, consequences and treatment remain quite different. In particular, the U.S. has higher underlying inflation—which is potentially more persistent and is appropriately being treated with aggressive monetary tightening. In contrast, more of Europe’s inflation is imported—which makes it more painful than U.S. inflation but also likely more transitory, and so the European Central Bank should follow a comparatively restrained response.....

The comparatively large runup in inflation in Europe is largely because of the extreme increase in the price of natural gas , now around $27 per million British thermal units, which was nearly three times what it is in the U.S. Russia's invasion of Ukraine raised food and energy inflation around the world

So no, we are not affecting the European markets as much as you would have us believe.

Gas and Oil production is up, and would be up more, but the industry is concerned about investing more into those leases, due to some of Biden's policies. This is a more complete picture of what is going on from an industry paper:

And part of our inflation is the cost of gas and oil and both those industries are showing record profit, which means they are the cause in part, of inflation, since when the cost of those go up, so does the cost of goods.

Now if we were printing money that would be a different story, but we are not.

"Although Federal Reserve purchases of Treasury securities do not involve printing money, the increase in the Federal Reserve's holdings of Treasury securities is matched by a corresponding increase in reserve balances held by the banking system. The banking system must hold the quantity of reserve balances that the Federal Reserve creates.

Ordinarily, an increase in reserve balances in the banking system would push down current and expected future levels of short-term interest rates; such an action would serve to boost the economy and variables like bank lending and the money supply. If maintained for too long, a relatively high level of reserve balances and a low level of short-term interest rates could lead to the buildup of inflation pressures."

"This is the type of pattern that we saw in the 1970s, up until about 1981-82. That's the pattern. Since then, we have not had that pattern develop at all. Interest rates have been low. Inflation has been low. All of that, that appears to be changing dramatically. The consumer price index is following the producer price index way up. And both of those are very bad signs for inflation going forward. And I don't think   Janet Yellen knows what to do. I don't think she can do anything.

Here is the complete paragraph in context.

ART LAFFER: I don't know what this administration is doing to tame it inflation Whatever they do is way beyond my Ken, just for the record. If I can, producer price index tends to be highly volatile over the years, and only when we are coming into serious periods of inflation, long-term inflation, consumer price index tends to go along with a wholesale price index or producer price index. This is the type of pattern that we saw in the 1970s, up until 1981 - 82. That's the pattern. We have not had that pattern in the past at all. interest rates have been low. Inflation has been low. All of that, that appears to be changing dramatically. The producer price index is rising according to the consumer price index. Both of these are very bad signs for inflation going forward. I don't think Janet Yellen knows what to do. I don't think she can do anything. I think she'll try to do something very dramatic, but it doesn't look good for this administration on inflation.

just probable doom and gloom.

The second quarter has ended. The Atlanta Fed is predicting another negative GDP number for that quarter. If they are proved right, we are in a recession.

I concur that in a poll of 21 participants maybe 9 gave thoughtful answers.

It's anonymous and 21 is as meaningless as any poll goes

Democrats and their allies in the traditional news media have coined the term the "Big Lie" to dismiss anyone who questions the conduct of the 2020 election.

But with each passing day, new irregularities, security vulnerabilities and illegalities are being unmasked by bombshell revelations from courts, legislators and other investigative bodies like the FBI and Homeland Security Department.

The latest came last week when the Wisconsin Supreme Court declared that state election regulators had no legal authority to allow voters to cast ballots in mobile drop boxes, a jaw-dropping decision that invalidated the way tens of thousands of voters -- many of them Democrats -- cast their ballots,

From Phoenix to Detroit, and Madison to Austin, there are now nearly two dozen credible confirmations of problems that undercut the claims of bureaucrats, journalists and Democrats that the November 2020 general election was perfect. In fact, it was quite imperfect.

And while none of revelations, at this point, will reverse the outcome of the presidential tally or unseat Joe Biden from the White House, they do build a compelling case that the bigger lie was that the 2020 election was flawless.

Here are 21 important revelations uncovered by Just the News over the last 18 months of reporting, complete with substantiating evidence and links:

  1. Illegal ballot drop boxes . The   Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled   earlier this month that the 570 drop boxes used during the 2020 election were unlawfully approved by the Wisconsin Election Commission, "Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes," the court declared. "WEC cannot. Ballot drop boxes appear nowhere in the detailed statutory system for absentee voting. WEC's authorization of ballot drop boxes was unlawful." State Rep. Janel Brandtjen told Just the News that hundreds of thousands of votes were cast in the illegal boxes in the 2020 race when Biden and Donald Trump were separated by less than 21,000 votes.
  2. A Foreign Intrusion . Federal authorities have confirmed that   two Iranian nationals successfully hacked into a state computer election system , stole 100,000 voter registrations and used the data to carry out a cyber-intimidation campaign that targeted GOP members of Congress, Trump campaign officials and Democratic voters in the November 2020 election in one of the largest foreign intrusions in U.S. election history. The defendants "were part of a coordinated conspiracy in which Iranian hackers sought to undermine faith and confidence in the U.S. presidential election," U.S. Attorney Damian Williams declared in an indictment.
  3. The Laptop Lie : More than 50 national security experts, countless news organizations and large social media firms falsely told American voters in fall 2020 that the Hunter Biden laptop with damning revelations about Biden family corruption was Russian disinformation. In fact, it was a legitimate laptop already in the FBI's possession, and Hunter Biden was already under criminal investigation before voters cast their 2020 ballots. The false narrative had significant impact: polling shows a majority of American voters believe the   pre-election censorship of the story amounted to election interference,  
  4. Alleged Bribery . The former state Supreme Court justice appointed by the Wisconsin Legislature to investigate the 2020 election concluded that millions of dollars in donations to election administrators in five Democrat-heavy municipalities from the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life violated state anti-bribery laws and corrupted election practices by turning public election authorities into liberal get-out-the-vote activists. “The Zuckerberg-funded CTCL/ Zuckerberg 5 scheme would prove to be an effective way to accomplish the partisan effort to 'turnout' their desired voters and it was done with the active support of the very people and the governmental institution (WEC) that were supposed to be guarding the Wisconsin elections administrative process from the partisan activities they facilitated,” Justice Michael Gableman wrote.
  5. Illegal ballot harvesting in Wisconsin . Gableman also exposed an extensive vote collection operation, known as ballot harvesting, in nursing homes in which third-party activists illegally collected the ballots of vulnerable residents, some of whom lacked the mental or physical capacity to vote or were forbidden from voting by guardianship agreements. State election regulators “unlawfully directed the municipal clerks not to send out the legally required special voting deputies to nursing homes, resulting in many nursing homes’ registered residents voting at 100% rates and many ineligible residents voting, despite a guardianship order or incapacity,” Gableman wrote in his explosive report.
  6. Ballot harvesting probe in the Peach State . Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has announced he has   opened a criminal investigation into allegations that liberal activists engaged in illegal ballot harvesting , collecting ballots from voters and delivering them in violation of state law. Raffensperger said he is planning to issue subpoenas to identify a whistleblower who admitted he engaged in the operation, and there could be prosecutions. The True the Vote election integrity group says in a formal state complaint that the man, identified as John Doe, admitted his role and identified nonprofits who funded it at $10 per ballot delivered. The watchdog group also claims it has assembled cell phone location records pinpointing the alleged harvesting by as many as 240 activists.  
  7. Bad voter signatures?   A   review of Maricopa County's mail-in ballots   in Arizona's 2020 presidential election estimated that more than 200,000 ballots with signatures that did not match voter files were counted without being reviewed, more than eight times the number the county acknowledged.
  8. 50,000 Arizona ballots called into question.  An extensive   audit by Arizona’s Senate   officially called into question more than 50,000 ballots cast in the 2020 election, including voters who cast ballots from residences they had left. The tally in question is nearly five times the margin of Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
  9. Foreign voters found on Texas rolls . An   audit of Texas voter rolls   identified nearly 12,000 noncitizens suspected of illegally registering to vote and nearly 600 cases in which ballots may have been cast in the name of a dead resident or by a voter who may also have voted in another state. Officials are now in the process of removing the foreign voters and deciding whether prosecutions are warranted.
  10. Foreign voters found on Georgia  rolls.  An   audit   by Georgia’s Secretary of State has identified more than 2,000 suspected foreigners who tried to register to vote in the state, though none reached the point of casting ballots. Raffensperger says prosecutions may be forthcoming.
  11. More noncitizen voters . The Gableman investigation in Wisconsin also found noncitizens had made it onto the state voters rolls in violation of state law. The Wisconsin Election Commission failed “to record non-citizens in the WisVote voter database, thereby permitting non-citizens to vote, even though Wisconsin law requires citizenship to vote — all in violation of the Help America Vote Act,” the investigator wrote.
  12. Election Machine Vulnerabilities : Immediately after the November 2020 elections, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security agency declared there was no hacking or machine vulnerabilities. The Iran hacking case put the lie to the first claim. And last month, the Homeland Security agency admitted in a new  report  that the popular Dominion Democracy Suite ImageCast X voting system had nine vulnerabilities, most of which include the ability to "install malicious code" on the machines. Federal officials say they don't know of any efforts to exploit those vulnerabilities in 2020, but the reversal in stories has significantly shaken confidence in the bureaucracy's assurances.
  13. Ballot chain of custody issues . The Georgia Secretary of State's office has opened an investigation into the handling of drop box ballots last November in one of the state's Democratic strongholds following a  media report  that there were problems with chain of custody documentation in DeKalb County.
  14. Fulton County irregularities . Georgia’s handpicked election monitor for Fulton County, the state’s largest voting district,  documented two dozen pages of mismanagement and irregularities   during vote counting in Atlanta in November 2020, including double-scanning of ballots, insecure transport of ballots and violations of voter privacy. The revelations prompted the   state to take steps to possibly put Fulton County in receivership , empowering state officials to run the elections. Most of Fulton County's election officials have left their jobs.
  15. Errant vote counting.   Georgia Gov. Brian   Kemp referred the audited November 2020 election results   in Fulton County to the State Election Board after multiple reviews found three dozen significant problems with absentee ballot counting, including duplicate tallies, math errors and transposed data. Kemp’s referral calls into question hundreds of ballots in the official count.
  16. Dirty voter rolls . Michigan’s official state auditor has found that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson failed to adhere to state election law by properly updating and reconciling Michigan’s qualified voter roll. This oversight, according to the audit, increased the risk of ineligible voters casting ballots.
  17. Illegal exemptions from voter ID.   The   Wisconsin Supreme Court   ruled as many as 200,000 voters were allowed to illegally skip voter ID for absentee ballots by claiming they were indefinitely confined by COVID when there was no such legal authority to do so. Biden beat Trump by about 20,000 votes in the state.
  18. Uneven enforcement of election laws.   The   Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau  identified more than 30 problems with the administration of elections in 2020, including unlawful orders and uneven enforcement of the law and urged  lawmakers to make sweeping improvements.
  19. More illegal harvesting.   In Arizona, a half dozen people have already been indicted on charges of illegal harvesting   in a probe by Attorney General Mark Brnovich that shows signs of expanding. It comes after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Democrats' arguments and concluded Arizona’s ban on harvesting was constitutional.
  20. Voter fraud in Michigan Michigan charged three women   in connection with voter fraud schemes, including efforts to cast ballots on behalf of non-consenting nursing home residents.
  21. Still more nursing home fraud . In Wisconsin,   Racine County Sheriff   Christopher Schmaling announced his investigators have secured evidence that eight out of 42 residents at a local nursing home had been recorded as casting absentee ballots that their families said was not possible because the residents didn't possess the cognitive ability to vote.

This advisory identifies vulnerabilities affecting versions of the Dominion Voting Systems Democracy Suite ImageCast X, which is an in-person voting system used to allow voters to mark their ballot. The ImageCast X can be configured to allow a voter to produce a paper record or to record votes electronically. While these vulnerabilities present risks that should be mitigated as soon as possible, CISA has no evidence that these vulnerabilities have been exploited in any elections. 

Exploitation of these vulnerabilities would require physical access to individual ImageCast X devices, access to the Election Management System (EMS), or the ability to modify files before they are uploaded to ImageCast X devices. Jurisdictions can prevent and/or detect the exploitation of these vulnerabilities by diligently applying the mitigations recommended in this advisory, including technical, physical, and operational controls that limit unauthorized access or manipulation of voting systems. Many of these mitigations are already typically standard practice in jurisdictions where these devices are in use and can be enhanced to further guard against exploitation of these vulnerabilities.

DC Police Officer Confirms Trump Had 'Heated Exchange' With Secret Service Over Going To The US Capitol, Backing Up Cassidy Hutchinson's Bombshell January 6 Testimony: CNN

DC police officer confirms Trump had 'heated exchange' with Secret Service over going to the US Capitol, backing up Cassidy Hutchinson's bombshell January 6 testimony: CNN
Charles R. Davis

  • A police officer has backed up testimony that Donald Trump fought with his Secret Service detail.

  • According to CNN, the officer told the January 6 committee he witnessed a heated exchange.

  • The testimony supports former the account shared by former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson.

A police officer has backed up      the bombshell testimony       that former President Donald Trump quarreled with his security team after they refused to drive him to the US Capitol on the day of the January 6 insurrection,      CNN reported Thursday.

He shared his account with the congressional committee investigating January 6, according to the outlet

I thought she was hilarious! When she realized she lost, she played the usual radical left cards by using wild, unfounded accusations and name-calling. 

Hawley: Why are you using the term "person with a capacity for pregnancy" instead of "woman?"

Bridges: "Your line of questioning is transphobic and opens trans people to violence."

Hawley: "You're saying I'm opening up people to violence by saying women can have pregnancies?"

She also didn't answer Cornyn's question: "Do you think that an unborn baby has value?"

Thank you, sir. I've not been able to be on NT very often in the past several months, but I'm trying to make more time to be more active again.

True. That's because leftist radical professors don't allow differing opinions ... i.e., respectful debate. There've been many interviews of both students and other profs about this very topic. Students are afraid to differ, because they'll get a lowered grade. Profs also keep quiet, because they know they'll be fired. That's not how true education should work.

Actually, it started over a century ago, but in the past 50 years, it's been exacerbated to the point we are today.

Who might they be? The last convicted traitor in the US was Tomoya Kawakita (born 1921) ... and that was in 1952.

"A historic political moment occurred Friday in Kentucky, when Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that Republicans have overtaken Democrats as the state’s leading party in terms of registered voters.

Through June 30, there were 1,612,060 registered GOP voters compared to 1,609,569 Democrats. A decade ago, Democrats held the majority of voters and a nearly 525,000 edge in registrations.

In a statement, Adams – himself a Republican – paid homage to Abraham Lincoln, a Kentucky native and the first Republican president, to mark the occasion.

“After a century and a half, the birthplace of Lincoln has finally aligned with the party of Lincoln,” he said. “Today is a grand day for all of us in the Grand Old Party who have worked so hard for so long to advance our goals of limited government and personal responsibility.”

The rise of the Republican Party is due to a combination of several factors, according to Michon Lindstrom, the communications director for the secretary of state’s office."
