Aviator Joe And The New Narrative
"The Beltway crowd dismissed him as out of touch," said New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the House Democratic Caucus chairman. "The agenda that he oversaw was widely popular with the American people. ... Now these wins will only allow President Biden's approval rating to catch up with the popularity of the agenda he's put forward."

Believe it or not the leftist media is touting Joe Biden's comeback. Yep, that's right, they say he has run into an incredible streak of good fortune. First, the nation was jolted by the back room deal Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin reached on what is ridiculously named the "Inflation Reduction Act." The Bill not only represents a tax increase, but spends Billions on adding 86,000 new IRS agents to ramp up audits on what has to be small business. On the other end the Bill gives generous tax credits to those who can afford electric cars. It also invests in green energy. A big hit with the democrat base, but not really with anyone else. Then we had the abomination at Mar-A-Lago last week. The DOJ obtained an open ended general warrant that allowed them to take anything. Few details and no indictment from the DOJ. There is at this hour the possibility of a heavily redacted look at the affidavit that gave the FBI such Carte blanche. Finally, there is the Jan 6th Committee promising us once again that there will be damning criminal evidence against Donald Trump. Unfortunately, they are going to sit on it until just before the midterm election.

The leftist media must truly believe that the American people will forget their suffering at the hands of Biden & his radical policies and go out and vote on frivolous nonsense like Trump is a criminal or abortion needs to be federal law. According to the media "Aviator Joe" now has the wind at his back. He's on an absolute roll!



The Week:

The Swamp: "A federal judge on Thursday told the Justice Department to prepare a redacted version of the affidavit that undergirded the FBI's raid on Mar-a-Lago – opening the door to more public information on the probe that preceded the move.

US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who signed off on search warrant for the August 8 raid, put off a final decision on whether to put out the document, which media outlets and allies of President Donald Trump were seeking following the extraordinary raid.

He told the government to come back with proposed redactions, after a Justice Department official argued that putting out information on witnesses could hamper future cooperators or endanger those who were providing information."

The failing economy:
"Sales of previously owned homes fell nearly 6% in July compared with June, according to a monthly report from the National Association of Realtors.

The sales count declined to a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 4.81 million units, the group added. It is the slowest sales pace since November 2015, with the exception of a brief plunge at the beginning of    the Covid pandemic  .


Sales dropped about 20% from the same month a year ago."

The Iranian threat: "Iran is expanding its proxy warfare beyond its malign activities in the Middle East to another front: American soil. 

Individuals working on behalf of the Iranian government have targeted several prominent members of the think tank community through both in-person surveillance and cyber operations,   The Dispatch   has learned. 

At the center of the regime’s campaign is United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), a U.S.-based advocacy group promoting policy to prevent the Islamic Republic from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Sources indicate that Iran’s targets within the organization’s ranks include UANI CEO and former George W. Bush administration official Mark Wallace, former Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, former National Security Adviser John Bolton, and Thomas Kaplan, an American billionaire and UANI’s original funder."

CDC confession: "The       Biden       administration took steps to mitigate anger among       people       with       disabilities       about its response to the disability community this week when Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky met with rights activists Friday.

People with disabilities had been frustrated with the Biden administration’s rollout of the vaccine and its emphasis on keeping schools open. But the anger reached a zenith last week when in an interview with    Good Morning America  , Dr Walensky cited a study that showed that severe disease among vaccinated people occurred in a small number of people and said “the overwhelming number of deaths, over 75 per cent, occurred in people who had at least four, so really these were people who were unwell to begin with.”

“It’s really a gut punch, to see the    CDC    director speak about our lives like this,” Tory Cross, a senior policy adviser at Be a Hero, told    The Independent    this week. “But wouldn’t have landed with people if it didn’t reflect the reality that this is how the CDC has really decided to treat us, the CDC has so much decided to let us die instead of being part of utilizing the full power of the federal government to protect not only disabled and chronically ill people and people with comorbidities, but to protect everyone.”

Radical Teacher's Union attacks parents:
  "A New Jersey
  teachers union   condemned parents who confront school officials at school board meetings as "extremist" in a new advertisement this week.

The New Jersey chapter of the National Education Association (NEA), the largest teachers union in America, posted the short ad on YouTube. The ad flips back and forth between colorful photos of teachers with students and black-and-white photos of parents, arguing that the latter are trying to fuse politics with education."

More inner-city violence: "A convicted sex offender   who allegedly cold-cocked a man on a Bronx street   — leaving him in a coma with brain injuries — was freed without bail Thursday after getting his attempted-murder charges reduced in the unprovoked attack."

What Have We Learned?


 Does anyone remember when former Energy Secretary Steven Chu advocated for the government to spike fuel costs in order to force those dumb, deplorable Americans to quit burning gas and transition to renewable energy?  The handlers of Joe Biden have now put that horrible idea into effect. Only a few on the left are honest enough to admit that is what they did. The  American Left always wanted unlimited illegal immigration. Biden delivered. The left never liked the American Justice system. Once again, Biden came through for them. Speaking of Justice, we recently realized that the DOJ's story on Trump isn't really adding up. The recent raid on Mar-A-Lago wasn't conducted by the Miami field office, but by the same FBI counter-intelligence division that secretly spied on Trump and his supporters. How many will be left to assume that this is yet another attempt to smear Trump before an election?

This was also the week that reality paid a visit to Liz Cheney. Cheney will now devote herself to prevent Donald Trump from becoming President again. The so-called Conservative Republican would rather have the radical policies of Joe Biden than those of Donald Trump.

Over here it was a week of more of the same. A 
microcosm of the society at large. The only difference is that instead of a powerful minority view, we have the rare pleasure of dealing with a majority who like the policies of Biden. Last week we had a taste of censorship, which is a reminder of the kind of censorship that social medial will again return to come November. There is no comparison between a foreign government spending $100,000 on Facebook and the kind of sophisticated power play that Molly Ball openly boasted about in Time magazine after the 2020 election.

Honorable Mention:

JONATHAN TURLEY:    

When Merrick Garland was nominated, many of us thought he was an excellent choice. He had impeccable ethics and a reputation and integrity. He also had a judicial temperament which may not be serving him well in this position. 
  Every time he's faced these political controversies  
, he's really failed to act, that's the reason I refer to his stature shrinking at the Justice Department. We'd all hoped that he could be that moderating force. And he hasn't been that. Every opportunity he's had just to recognize the concerns of millions of citizens, he's really been absent without leave.

I deny the FBI "acted with malice" and you cannot prove otherwise on the specifics of this case. It's just more bare assertion on your part.

Bare assertion,  arguing from the one to the many, presenting false dichotomies,  projection, etc. are all part and parcel of your writing and debating techniques.  More disingenuous tactics from a rapidly turning fascistic reactionary right that supports bald faced lying and cheating on a monumental scale. 

But, credit where credit is due, you have convinced me that there are actually evil people out there who are willing to say and do anything to wrest the reigns of power out of a duly elected government to install a fascistic state where freedoms are granted,  they are not guaranteed, by the government.

The Jan 6 committee will resume in a few more weeks. It will only get worse for Trump, and since Eric Trump declared yesterday that there is no more Republican Party, it is now the Trump Party according to Eric, the stank of Trumps misbehavior will rub off on the entire GOP.  There is a price to be paid eventually for being lackeys to an unAmerican traitor. 

When have things ever gotten better for Trump? Its actually a good question. He was able to use executive orders to promote certain right wing causes while he was president, but for him personally it has been all downhill since election day 2016.  As the book title says, Everything Trump Touches Dies.

If you have some evidence that people voted who were not registered to vote, spit it out. 

By the way, a survey of Georgia voting in 2020 showed definitively why Trump lost that state. Thousands of Republican voters voted for all the other Republican candidates but didnt put the check mark next to Trumps name on the ballot, leaving that line blank.

Wouldn't it have been easier to read the article?

Here:

"According to a report  by WILL, Racine purchased an absentee voting van using funds it received in 2020 from the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) — a  Mark Zuckerberg-funded left-wing nonprofit  — in anticipation of the 2022 elections. Leading up to the Aug. 9, 2022, primary, the voting van visited 21 designated locations around the city “distributing and collecting ballots at each over the 14-day period of in-person absentee voting prior to Election Day.”

"But as the report states, the absentee voting van was assigned to wards that vote at a higher percentage for Democrats, thereby conferring an advantage to the Democratic Party in direct violation of Wisconsin state law. Furthermore, the law states that absentee voting sites must “be located as near as practicable to the office of the municipal clerk or board of election commissioners.” The WILL report found that Racine did not follow this statute in choosing the voting van’s designated locations."

6.1.5  Thomas  replied to  Vic Eldred @6.1.3    one month ago

From the Report:

Unlike many analyses we conduct at WILL, we are unconcerned about any role for other
“explanatory” or “control” variables. The law is explicit that polling locations cannot have a
partisan bias, so it is largely irrelevant for the question at hand if, for instance, poverty rates
rather than partisanship could help to explain the results here. If any alternative absentee voting
site “affords an advantage to any political party”, for any reason, it violates the law.

So, they don't care if these voters happen to not have the mobility to vote, to poor and working all of the time, or any other reason. tough goobers.

This is more important (From the report conclusion):

Whether Racine intended for partisan bias in their selection of locations is not a component of
the law and therefore irrelevant to the issue at hand. The result of the locations chosen is biased
along partisan lines, which violates state election law.

So, it didn't matter till the actual votes were counted and the results just happened to be against Republicans....

In other words, since Trump won anyway, we should let the Zuckerberg gang off the hook?

“Racine’s use of mobile voting sites violates clear directives in state law on the collection of absentee ballots at alternative sites. WEC must make clear that Racine is violating the law and ensure that clerks across the state understand what is, and is not permitted in Wisconsin law,” WILL Deputy Counsel Anthony LoCoco said in a  press release

Additionally, state law stipulates that if the city uses alternative voting sites, then “no function related to voting and return of absentee ballots that is to be conducted at the alternate site may be conducted in the office of the municipal clerk or board of election commissioners.” However, for two weeks leading up to the Aug. 9 primary, early absentee voting also took place at the city clerk’s office at Racine’s city hall.

Other watchdog groups have raised concerns about Racine’s use of the mobile voting van and its potential for fraud and abuse. The Election Transparency Initiative  tweeted , “Is casting a ballot on the side of the road and in parking lots—just like ordering lunch—a recipe for fraud, abuse & mismanagement?”

Then you haven't a thing to worry about.  

Of course, it can spread through contact with any bodily fluid, bedding touching the rash itself...

The first cases of children getting monkeypox are starting to be confirmed in the US. 

Heard on NPR that it used to be a disease of children who would bring critters in from the wild.

Over a 10 year period? Yes! 52,000 are expected to retire or leave in the next 6 years and the current workforce is give or take 79,000. BTW, any of my comments were based on the ubiquitous Branco cartoon, whether or not you said anything about armed agents in the middle of a thread is evasive nonsense.

From your article.

The 87,000 figure does exist, buried within a May 2021   Treasury Department report   when the Biden administration was pushing a bigger spending bill with the same $80 billion IRS funding. The report estimated the money could fund 86,852 full-time hires through 2031.

But the actual net staff increase would be far lower, as the IRS expects over 50,000 employees to retire over the next five years alone, said Natasha Sarin, Treasury counselor for tax policy and administration.

That is still an extra 37,000 agents! 

Why would the IRS need more agents when revenue is at an all time high? Why would they be the only entity that needs to hire more people with advances in technology? Corporations are moving to less people with technology advances. Thankfully the IRS is a part of big government that has no spending limit; and answers only to itself.

The problem I have with the explanation that this is to replace retiring employees is that these are government positions.  The position is funded by fiscal year.  So if a person leaves a position by retiring or quitting, the position itself as well as the funding for that position does not disappear.  The position and funding is used to hire the replacement person into that slot.  Even if inflation forces the IRS to raise starting / hiring wages to offset so that they need to eliminate 20% of the vacant positions in order to pool funding, that still leaves 41,600 positions funded and available over that 6 year period.  So I don't believe the talking point that the 87k new hires are just to replace those retiring or quitting.

The Swamp

The warranted search and seizure of top-secret documents from the Mango Mussolini is not an example of political swamps. It is the exact opposite, the burning down of the political swamp the prior administration created.

The failing economy

What utter horse shit. The economy is strong, a drop of 6% in home sales after a period of unprecedented sales was expected and is a symptom of higher interest rates and inflation actually going down and not just leveling off.

The Iranian threat

The Iranian threat has been there for decades. Just because they are monitoring groups set on keeping them from gaining weapons does not mean this is somehow Bidens fault.

CDC confession

The CDC confession was about the CDC doing an internal review and admitting to many mistakes made since early 2020. What you link is a completely different issue about the CDC citing a study that showed much higher morbidity rates for those "unwell to begin with" that some senior policy adviser at some group called 'Be a Hero' apparently felt insulted the disabled. What does that have to do with Biden? Absolutely nothing, but clearly whiny bitter bitching conservatives blame anything and everything negative on Biden reflexively in order to defend and deflect for their Tangerine Tyrant.

Radical Teacher's Union attacks parents

A teacher's union "posted the short ad on YouTube" that "flips back and forth between colorful photos of teachers with students and black-and-white photos of parents" "arguing that the latter are trying to fuse politics with education". OH NO! So 'Radical'!! A teachers union showing photo evidence of the difference between irate parents bringing their politics into the school district and the teachers that are simply trying to do their best at educating children. Anyone who thinks this is 'radical' has their heads shoved up the backside of the right-wing alternative universe. And how is this Bidens fault?

More inner-city violence

What does the case of a man who had been convicted of sex crimes 27 years ago who now is arrested for punching a man in the street and a DA deciding to reduce the charges from attempted murder to assault and harassment and is on 'supervised release' have to do with Joe Biden?

What Have We Learned?

Absolutely nothing in this tired whiny screed of bullshit Biden blaming. The claim that someone Biden intentionally spiked US gas prices in an effort to push green energy is laughable conspiracy theory hog wash.

The  American Left always wanted unlimited illegal immigration.

Just more utter horse shit without a lick of evidence, just brainless right wing conservative conspiracy theorist drivel. Just because Democrats treat undocumented immigrants as human instead of trash like Republicans want to treat them does not mean Democrats wanted "unlimited illegal immigration". That's simply ludicrous.

This entire seed is just piss and vinegar from right wing conservatives doing their best to cover for their Dear Leader who is under investigation from all directions with his CFO pleading guilty, dozens of top-secret documents being seized and his likely criminal role in the January 6th attempted insurrection being meticulously revealed. Trump fans and those with their heads shoved up his ass are clearly worried which is why they are SO fucking desperate to change the conversation to any attack on Biden.

Did he? Did he 'get him'? Did Strozk fake any evidence or use some other illegal means to 'get him'? I really couldn't give a fuck about what he said in a text to his girlfriend, dipshit conservatives trying to use that as some "gotcha" when it appears everything Strozk did was actually by the book other than the "appearance" of bias due to the texts found. He wasn't fired, he was suspended for 60 days because of the texts, nothing wrong with his work was ever found.

And yes, those choosing not to stand by the FBI are standing against the blue and the law and are gutless partisan whiners who blame an organization made up of fallible people for making a handful of mistakes in an investigation that WAS fucking warranted and was not solely based on the Steele dossier.

If the FBI was corrupt and was just an arm of the Democrats or some fantasy 'deep state', there wouldn't be any texts from Strzok hinting at bias, Trump would have been arrested and indicted and convicted. Trying to believe that they are some shadow organization controlling the puppet strings of Washington and planting evidence and making fraudulent investigations is so fucking insane, it's not even worth addressing. You have to be completely out of your fucking mind to believe that kind of horse shit conspiracy theory nonsense.

Did Strozk fake any evidence or use some other illegal means to 'get him'?

Internal FBI documents   unsealed Thursday indicate that Peter Strzok -- the   now-disgraced  anti-Trump former head of FBI counterintelligence -- ordered the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn to remain open even after it was slated to be closed due to a lack of so-called "derogatory" information.

The materials surfaced just a day after   explosive FBI communications   revealed that top bureau officials discussed their motivations for interviewing Flynn in  the White House  on January 24, 2017 -- and openly questioned if their "goal" was "to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired."




WASHINGTON – Kevin Clinesmith, the former FBI lawyer who altered an email during the Russia investigation that was used to justify the surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, was sentenced to one-year probation on Friday.

Clinesmith, who worked for the FBI for four years,   pleaded guilty   last summer to falsifying the communication during the early stages of the FBI's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to the Trump campaign.

The document was altered to show that Page was "not a source" for the CIA, even though the original message from the CIA indicated otherwise. The CIA had earlier told investigators in a memo that Page was an "operational contact" for the agency from 2008 to 2013 and provided information about his contacts with Russian intelligence officers.




The Department of Justice will not prosecute former FBI director James Comey for leaking memos detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump.

According an   Office of the Inspector General   report released Thursday, Comey violated DOJ and FBI policies, as well as the FBI's employment agreement, by keeping copies of four of his memos in a personal safe and asking a law professor friend to make one memo public after Trump fired him in May 2017.

"The responsibility to protect sensitive law enforcement information falls in large part to the employees of the FBI who have access to it through their daily duties," Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote in his report.




FBI Director   James Comey   said his office is not recommending prosecutors bring charges against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information in connection with private email servers while secretary of state.

“Although the   Department of Justice   makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,” Comey said Tuesday.

Addressing inevitable complaints about the investigation, Comey — a Republican — emphasized that “this investigation was done honestly, competently and independently.”

LaRouche poster of Barack Obama with a 'Hitler mustache'

During the discussion of U.S. health care reform in 2009, LaRouche advocated a single-payer health care bill and took exception to what he described as President Barack Obama's proposal that "independent boards of doctors and health care experts [should] make the life-and-death decisions of what care to provide, and what not, based on cost-effectiveness criteria." LaRouche said the proposed boards would amount to the same thing as the NazisAction T4 euthanasia program. A press release from his political action committee asserted: "Lyndon LaRouche and the LaRouchePAC are the source of the campaign to expose the Obama ‘health care’ policy as modeled on that of Hitler in 1939."[190]

Well, the media is trying to spin a dead cat bounce.  This won't end well after the election.

512

Merrick Garland has stepped on the Jan. 6th committee (a.k.a. the Liz Cheney show).  Garland has done what seemed impossible; shifted the narrative away from Trump.  Now the country is arguing over defending or defunding the FBI.  And the nagging question is who is in charge?  It's not Biden; he can't be bothered.  It's not the House committee since they've already admitted they can't do anything.  Garland is only stone walling.  The only way out of this mess is to indict and prosecute Trump.  So, who's going to make that call?

Build Back Better has shrunk to less than a quarter of its size as the Inflation Reduction Act.  The IRA (how, Biden Irish) replaces existing EV credits with new, improved EV credits (the same with a different name).  The IRA invests in Chinese manufacturing of solar panels and wind turbines.  The IRA allows Medicare to negotiate the price of certain drugs (yet to be announced by big pharma).  Most importantly for Democrats, the IRA increases taxes and militarizes the Infernal Revenue Service.  The IRS is becoming as independent as the DOJ.  

Foreign affairs is off the news cycle.  At least until the election is over.  The war in Ukraine has become a little shop of horrors; feed me, feed me!  Pelosi's toddler diplomacy has awakened the sleeping dragon.  Business-as-usual immigration is causing cognitive dissonance in liberal strongholds; NIMBY liberalism at its finest.  Trump's diplomacy in the Middle East is paying dividends so Biden has to kick the Iranian dog (whistling through the graveyard).

Yep, the post-election roundup will cause that Maytag to fall apart.  Dead cats can only bounce so high.  Republicans look to fare well.  And the nagging question won't go away.  Who is really in charge?

Aviator Joe is back — just in time to take his quasi-victory lap. Forget the glowing eyes of Dark Brandon. As President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrives back in Washington, D.C., to enter the White House to sign the   Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 , it is his Ray-Ban 3025s — the dark, wire-rimmed, teardrop-shaped sunglasses he has made his signature — that once again seem the emblem of the man.

She does, however, discuss the fact that Biden's current use of aviator glasses is a mimicry of Tom Cruise's use of them in his summer blockbuster movie  - perhaps in hopes of re-charging his flailing presidential approval ratings from both the left and right.

Then she is ignorant of history.  Since Biden has had a lifetime fashion affinity for

aviator jackets and glasses spanning 60 years.  Might as well accuse Biden of 

mimicry of JFK, FDR or George Bush, an actual aviator.

Since Biden has had a lifetime fashion affinity for aviator jackets and glasses spanning 60 years. 

Exactly, it was only those five student deferments and one final medical one, asthma, not bone spurs, that kept Joe from being a naval aviator.

Well, that and he had to turn down the appointment to the Naval Academy because he thought Roger Staubach was  probably a better football player than he was and that  there wouldn't be enough room on the football team for two legends at the same time.  People don't give him enough credit for admitting that he wasn't quite as good a football player as an NFL hall of famer. He's very  humble.

I was appointed to the Academy in 1965 by a senator who I was running against in 1972.  (Laughter.)  Never planned it that way.  I wasn’t old enough to be sworn in.  I was only 29 years old when I was running.  He was a fine man, and his name was J. Caleb Boggs. I didn’t come to the Academy because I wanted to be a football star.  And you had a guy named Staubach and Bellino here.  So I went to Delaware.

And I thought his bio had him graduating from the University of Delaware in 1965, before going to Law School in Syracuse.  Maybe he thought the Naval Academy was a law school.

Wow, a picture of Biden napping during an April 14,2011 "Debt Speech" by Barack Obama.

(Actually a 33 second video which spawned hundreds of partisan memes)

Questions.

Which of you four would not have fallen asleep also?

Were you "woke" 11 years ago?

Quaint?

Yes the debt actually doubled since 2008.

Depression/Recession stimulus and tax cuts added $8T during Obama's 8 years.

Covid and more tax cuts under Trump added another $8T in 4 years.

and Biden cuts the deficit while adding another $2T so far.
