Not Woke Enough: 'Handmaid's Tale' Novelist Margaret Atwood Blasted for Sharing Article Questioning Transgender Agenda

Author Margaret Atwood is a hero of the woke left, which has long adored her novel "The Handmaid's Tale" and the feminist Hulu series adapted from it. But with one tweet, the novelist has now become the target of hate from the same woke fane base after she shared an article that questioned the increasing prevalence of terms like "person with a vagina" and "person who menstruates" in place of "woman."

Greg Gutfeld: The world is full of men who make you nervous and they don't know it

It’s not fear of toxic masculinity – it’s fear of competency. Dudes show up, work hard, and solve problems. It’s the opposite of spoiled college kids, so soft and pampered, who have to create problems to give their lives meaning.

Woke NBC Drama: Teens ‘Over Binary Language,’ Bisexuality ‘Part of Who I am’

NBC's Ordinary Joe went woke this week with discussion of "binary language" and bisexuality. During the October 18 episode “Mask On Mask Mask Off,” a flashback memory shows Eric revealing to Joe that he is bisexual when they are younger teens. (The show follows Joe on each of three different paths he could have chosen for himself, based on decisions he made at his college graduation.) The new revelation of Eric’s sexuality comes up in two of the three timelines and is just as “woke” as you’d expect.  In one path, Eric (Charlie Barnett) is helping Joe's (James Wolk) wife run her Congressional campaign. Eric has a crush on and begins to date Sai, a staffer who is gay, who also warns the candidate against using "binary language:" Sai: Can we cut the "ladies and gentlemen" at the beginning? A lot of teen voters are gonna be there and they're over binary language. Maybe just say "esteemed guests" instead. Eric: That sounds so really formal. Maybe just "friends." Sai: I like "friends." Do you like "friends?" Amy: "Friends" can work. Eric is a single father to a baby girl after his gay partner split because, as Joe puts it, he was “too dumb to realize how awesome fatherhood is." (At least, this is something the show gets right.) In a separate timeline, Eric is married to Mallory (Gabrielle Byndloss), who is pregnant with their child. He expresses frustration about how Mallory may have applied for a preschool too late for their yet-to-be-born child, and so they may be shut out. Eric brings up the race and sexual orientation of the families whose children attend the preschool to knock it as not being diverse enough while over for dinner with Joe, Joe’s mom, Gwen (Anne Ramsay), and his Uncle Frank (David Warshofsky) and Aunt Meg (Sarah Charipar): Mallory: So the admissions director tells me our chances are low because I applied too late. Our kid isn't even born yet. It's a preschool.  Gwen: I'm sure they would change their position if you gave them a hefty donation, 'cause...  Eric: Whatever--I hate that place anyway.  Mallory: I do too.  Eric: Right? Two Black families, and not a single queer parent in the entire school.  Frank: So just don't tell them you're queer.  Eric: Uncle Frank.  Frank: What? Oh, I'm sorry, Eric. Is that one of those words that only you're allowed to say? Because times are changing fast for an old man like me.  Eric: No, it--it is not that. Queer is my preferred word, but I love you for asking. Meg: I don't see what the big deal is. Back when I was in college, all the girls were bisexual.  Frank: Yeah, we all know about your Vassar days, Meg. But I really wanna understand this, Eric. Why does a preschool need to know about your private life? …. Eric: The thing is, Frank, I don't want to have to live in a closet. I can't hide that I'm a biracial black man, right? Why should I hide that I'm bisexual? Even in a monogamous marriage with Mallory, it's still a part of who I am. Does that make sense?  Frank: Yeah, perfect sense. Does it mean I'm woke? Gwen: No, honey, it doesn't.  Considering that Eric himself acknowledges that he is in a monogamous relationship with his wife and is thus only having sex with a woman and choosing not to act on his bisexuality, that it would come up at all is cause for confusion in this woke storyline. Nobody needs to know what kind of sex someone likes, especially not a preschool. It may make “perfect sense” to Uncle Frank, but it doesn’t make ANY sense to the rest of us. Conservatives Fight Back! The show was Microsoft; Olay; Capital One; T-Mobile; Amazon; and Samsung. Contact them to let them know what you think about this bisexual, non-binary episode.

AUDIT UTAH: Patriots Organize Rally For a Full Forensic Audit At Committee Meeting WEDNESDAY AT UTAH CAPITOL!

Patriots in Utah will hold a rally on Wednesday for a full forensic audit of Utah’s 2020 election.

Election integrity is on the agenda at tomorrow’s Utah Judiciary Interim Committee Meeting, and the Patriots want to be heard.

This item was placed on the agenda by House co-chair Karianne Lisonbee and a key speaking slot was given to Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen.

Although President Trump won and was declared the winner in Utah, many still have doubts in Dominion and the state’s voter rolls, including Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen.

Salt Lake County, Utah’s largest County, ran their election with Dominion and President Trump received 11 points fewer than Biden.

Rep. Christiansen has been fighting for an election audit in Utah and he is the featured speaker at this rally.

Rep. Christiansen toured the Arizona audit in June and he told TGP that he would like to replicate this process in Utah.

Utah State Rep. Steve Christiansen After AZ Audit Tour: “GOLDEN, INCREDIBLE, AMAZING EXPERIENCE”

This rally will take place on October 20, outside of the Capitol in Salt Lake City at 11 a.m., before the Judiciary Interim Committee meeting begins.

The Capitol is at 350 State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Grassroots patriots will then organize inside to testify and give public comments at 12:45 p.m., before the meeting at 1:15 p.m.

sltrib reports,

It’s certainly possible that Wednesday’s committee meeting could lead to a similar subpoena-fueled audit. But here’s a possible roadblock. Interim committees have a House and Senate chair, so there’s not a single person in charge. And Utah code clarifies that any subpoena must include “the name of the legislative body or office on whose behalf the subpoena is issued.” This suggests that any decision to issue a subpoena would be subject to a committee vote.

Because interim committees are made up of both House and Senate members, any vote must get a majority from both bodies, not just the committee as a whole. There are five Senators and 12 Representatives on the committee. A subpoena would require a “yes” vote from three Senators and seven Representatives.

YES! #AuditUtah!https://t.co/i9XkmlDjzq

— Wendy Rogers (@WendyRogersAZ) October 19, 2021

Utah State Representatives Steve Christiansen and Phillip Lyman are the only legislators from Utah that have added their names to Arizona State Representative Wendy Rogers’ Audit 50 States Letter.

Contact your state legislators in Utah and tell them to sign Wendy Rogers’ Audit 50 States Letter and contact the Judiciary Interim Committee to demand an audit in Utah.

This Utah committee can issue subpoenas for the audit as was done in Arizona.

146 legislators sign AZ State Senator Wendy Rogers’ “Audit 50 States Letter,” and over a million people signed her petition.

Republicans are winning the debate on voter ID.

A Republican group whose leaders include Bill Kristol, founder of The Weekly Standard, and former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman is behind $250,000 worth of billboards in Pa. with the message: ‘Trump lost – no more audits’. Where are they getting that kind of money, to just prevent looking at the ballots?

An article on just how much data Amazon is grabbing from all the smart speakers and other stuff in people’s houses. Woman finds thousands of voice recordings of her talking inside her house in just one of the files they have on her, as well as the contact list off her phone which she didn’t even sync with it. What nobody realizes is there is a local archivist in their neighborhood who mans the neighborhood observation post with his/her family, and whose job it is to get to know everyone in their sector. They will collate as much of the data available on them as they can, and organize the relevant stuff into their file. And this data is certainly available to them. If they judge you interesting, they will take a listen. And if you are really interesting, they will have backdoors into the tech for real time monitoring. It is worse than a Brave New World.

Article on some CIA leader retiring. No way to know whether he was good or bad, everything in that area is lies and fabrications, and the reporters writing the article are probably CIA themselves. He killed Al Qaida, but refused to help the Military with the Haqqani network when it was killing our servicemen – and he was a Muslim convert who advanced diversity so he was probably leftist. And he was somehow involved in the decision-making which produced the bombing of a CIA base by a Jordanian triple agent, and some CIA held him responsible for it. But the article had this interesting tidbit – “The official, Mike D’Andrea — nicknamed the “Dark Lord” or “Prince of Darkness” and known by the undercover name “Roger”— had been granted waivers that allowed him to continue working at the CIA past the mandatory retirement age, according to former agency officials. But the agency declined his most recent retirement exception… A small cadre of other senior CIA officials who had been receiving retirement waivers were also told their tenure would no longer be extended, said another former senior agency official.” No way to know what it means, but CIA appears to be letting go of old hands with pull who were able to extend their tenures beyond what the rules allowed.

Four aging Air Force vets told the National Press Club conference in DC that in the 1960s, UFOs tampered with nuclear weapons managed by the Air Force, both terrifying and mystifying the airmen who experienced the encounters.

An article makes the case something else is behind the proposed new IRS $600 reporting rule. I wonder if Cabal is planning for their extra-governmental intel operation being taken down, or forced to back off, by giving its capabilities to official government agencies.

Biden to participate in CNN town hall this week with ‘invitation-only audience.’ Nazi propaganda was controlled like this. A lot of the present state of affairs irritates me. But I have to say the gaslighting is particularly irksome. I’ve seen more than enough of it in my lifetime. Now, when people try to argue everything from there is no surveillance, to the idea people listening in your house is fine and I am the weird one (the Amazon article above noted a supposed normal “commenter” just like us didn’t mind Amazon was recording inside their house and saving it), to the idea there is nothing anyone can do about it, it is just intolerable.

Chuck Barris’ first wife was the niece of a CBS executive who worked for the CIA. He claimed he was killing people for the CIA while travelling  under the cover of his game show, though he may just have been a courier. Wives are often handlers. And I suspect they can’t read their future hubby’s in before they are married, and I think many feel they can’t read them in after, because their husbands were targets and would be pissed to find out their lives were so intruded upon and fucked with. It must be a weird life. I can think of two guys I’ve known whose wives had the hallmarks. One I suspect never knew, even as he would tell the story of them meeting, which even I in my ignorance thought was strange and unlikely back then. And the other seemed to be set up for a divorce in an organized operation, with his Cabal wife walking off with half his stuff.

“The Klu Klux Klan dressed protester case should have never been brought as the plaintiffs have no one to blame but themselves. Rather than protest peacefully, the plaintiffs intentionally sought to rile up a crowd by blocking the entrance to Trump Tower on 5th Avenue, in the middle of the day, wearing Klu Klux Klan robes and hoods. When security tried to deescalate the situation, they were unfortunately met with taunts and violence from the plaintiffs themselves. Seeing this for what it is, prior to my deposition today, the Court dismissed almost all of the plaintiffs’ claims—except for a baseless claim for injuries they never suffered, and the temporary loss of a worthless cardboard sign which was soon thereafter returned to them. After years of litigation, I was pleased to have had the opportunity to tell my side of this ridiculous story—Just one more example of baseless harassment of your favorite President.” — Donald J. Trump

Wacky Senator Bill Cassidy from Louisiana is a RINO Republican who begged for my endorsement in 2020 and used it all over the place to win re-election, much like Little Ben Sasse, and then voted to impeach your favorite President.

I have done so much for the State of Louisiana, including making it possible to build major energy facilities that would never have happened without me filling up the strategic petroleum reserve at record low prices, and making sure they received huge amounts of hospital supplies and ventilators to aid the people of Louisiana in fighting the China Virus. Even the Democrat governor thanked me for all I did.

Now, Wacky Bill Cassidy can’t walk down the street in Louisiana, a State I won by almost 20 points. He could not even be elected dog catcher today, the great people curse him.

Wacky Bill is a totally ineffective Senator, but Louisiana does have a great Senator in John Kennedy.

General Keith Kellogg has written a sweeping and powerful account of the Trump Presidency. He spent four years with me in the White House and in the 2016 Campaign for the Presidency. His narrative is factual and indisputable. Unlike other Fakers and Slimeballs that write fictional books without knowing me or virtually anything about me, The General knew me and my administration well, and he was there for every major National Security decision. Finally we have a real and inside account of our very successful four years. An incredible read published today. I strongly recommend this important book that will set a historic standard. Go get War By Other Means by General Keith Kellogg—it’s really good!

Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!

The fake, highly partisan Unselect Committee continues to rock and roll. They were unable to make a deal with Kevin McCarthy to put real Republicans on the Committee, so they got stuck with low-polling warmonger Liz Cheney and Cryin’ Adam Kinzinger who have no idea what our Party stands for. Cheney is polling in the low 20’s in Wyoming, the State she doesn’t represent. This is just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which started with the now fully debunked and discredited Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, quickly reverting to a perfect phone call with Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and now this. The Unselect Committee is composed of absolute political hacks who want to destroy the Republican Party and are decimating America itself. I am the only thing in their way. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Under the Radar: Nets Skip Biden’s Secret Night Flights for Illegals

“Biden’s Secret Flights.” That's what the front page of Tuesday’s edition of the New York Post blared as they exposed how the administration was chartering private jets in the dead of night of send unaccompanied minors across the country. Of course, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC were uninterested in President Biden’s ongoing and worsening crisis on the southern border, which included a spike of criminal illegals crossing the border. As NewsBusters previously reported, instead of reporting on those flights that evening, ABC’s World News Tonight was busy touting a transgendered “woman” being installed as a four-star general. On the CBS Evening News, they were hawking and huffing about cops and firefighters who would rather lose their jobs than getting vaccinated. And for their part, NBC Nightly News touted a handful of parents and liberal teachers opposing a school board doing away with Critical Race Theory. “The New York Post reveals the Biden administration uses nighttime charter flights from Texas to transport unaccompanied minors to relatives or sponsors at locations far from the border,” Fox News Channel senior correspondent Eric Shawn reported on Special Report. After noting that the Post had “spotted this World Atlantic Airlines MB-38 charter plane” being used for these flights, Shawn chronicled its recent journey: The World Atlantic Airlines plane has really hopped around. Last Friday, starting at the crack of dawn at 6:37 a.m. It flew from McAllen, Texas, to Villahermosa, Mexico. A possible expulsion flight sending Central American migrants back to Mexico. It returned to McAllen and then jumped to El Paso. And the 2:04 p.m. Headed east to Jacksonville, Florida before finally flying north to Westchester touching down there at 9:52 p.m.     Shawn used a soundbite of Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz speaking with Fox earlier in the day, where he seemed to predict the future: “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris caused this. And their entire strategy is ignore it and they are counting on the corrupt corporate media to ignore it as well.” And while she did argue the semantics of precisely what time the planes took off, Press Secretary Jen Psaki argued they were following the law. “Under what’s known as the federal Flores agreement, the administration has to release unaccompanied minors within 20 days, which is why they are being flown to places that can take them,” Shawn noted “Well, this morning that plane was back in the air. It took off early from McAllen, Texas and right now, is on the ground in Mexico. No word on where the next distinction is but we’ll keep tabs on where it is going,” Shawn concluded. Immediately following that report, anchor Bret Baier announced they were “learning new information tonight about the danger posed to Americans by some of the illegal immigrants flowing into this country.” According to correspondent Mike Tobin, “Border Patrol agents confirm criminals are among those stopped at the border.” They included hardened gang members: Last Thursday and Saturday, El Salvadorian migrants were rounded up in Hidalgo, Texas. Background checks reviled three members of the violent MS-13 gang. One individual with a murder conviction as well as attempted murder. One of the migrants previously made it to Dallas where he racked up a conviction for assault and now faces a warrant for sexual assault of a minor. “And that's a concern all across the southern border. As the deadly summer heat eases allowing for safer passage, traditionally the number of people attempting a crossing only increases from this point forward,” he warned. This omission of President Biden’s border crisis was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Ring on ABC, Amazon on CBS, and  GEICO on NBC.

The transcript is below, click "expand" to read: Fox News Channel’s Special Report October 19, 2021 6:02:05 p.m. eastern BRET BAIER: And senior correspondent Eric Shawn in New York with word the Biden administration has been secretly flying underage migrants to places far away from the border. ERIC SHAWN: Good evening, Bret. McAllen, Texas is a long way from Westchester, New York. 2,012 miles. But it is part of the journey of some young migrants. [Cuts to video] They are young migrants, teenagers and kids, flown in from the southern border in the dead of night. The New York Post reveals the Biden administration uses nighttime charter flights from Texas to transport unaccompanied minors to relatives or sponsors at locations far from the border. The paper spotted this World Atlantic Airlines MB-38 charter plane that arrived Friday night at the Westchester County Airport north of New York City just before 10:00 P.M. But some flights have arrived as late as 2:00 and 4:00 in the morning. Texas Senator Ted Cruz wants them grounded. SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): Their entire political strategy is based on secrecy. [Transition] Joe Biden and Kamala Harris caused this. And their entire strategy is ignore it and they are counting on the corrupt corporate media to ignore it as well. So, of course, they fly in the middle of the night because they have no defense. SHAWN: The World Atlantic Airlines plane has really hopped around. Last Friday, starting at the crack of dawn at 6:37 A.M. It flew from McAllen, Texas, to Villahermosa, Mexico. A possible expulsion flight sending Central American migrants back to Mexico. It returned to McAllen and then jumped to El Paso. And the 2:04 P.M. Headed east to Jacksonville, Florida before finally flying north to Westchester touching down there at 9:52 P.M. PRESS SEC. JEN PSAKI: I'm not sure it's in the middle of the night. SHAWN: White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the administration is only carrying out the law. Under what’s known as the federal Flores agreement, the administration has to release unaccompanied minors within 20 days, which is why they are being flown to places that can take them. PSAKI: It's no surprise that kids can be seen traveling through states not just to New York. It's something that we are also working to unite children with their family members or vetted sponsors in other parts of the country as well. [Cuts back to live] SHAWN: Well, this morning that plane was back in the air. It took off early from McAllen, Texas and right now, is on the ground in Mexico. No word on where the next distinction is but we’ll keep tabs on where it is going. Bret. BAIER: Eric Shawn in New York City. Eric, thank you. We are learning new information tonight about the danger posed to Americans by some of the illegal immigrants flowing into this country. Senior correspondent Mike Tobin is in La Joya, Texas tonight with chilling details. [Cuts to video] MIKE TOBIN: Border Patrol agents confirm criminals are among those stopped at the border. Last Thursday and Saturday, El Salvadorian migrants were rounded up in Hidalgo, Texas. Background checks reviled three members of the violent MS-13 gang. One individual with a murder conviction as well as attempted murder. One of the migrants previously made it to Dallas where he racked up a conviction for assault and now faces a warrant for sexual assault of a minor. On Monday, Border Patrol agents uncovered two stash houses lacking basically necessities in Penitas, Texas with 39 migrants total, unaccompanied minors in their ranks. Most immigrants don't hide, rather, they seek out the authorities. Anticipating they will get help and be able to stay in the U.S. Our cameras captured one family that came across to La Joya, Texas Monday night reporting directly to Border Patrol. Customs and Border Protection has already counted 1.5 million apprehensions at the southwest border. When the tally for the fiscal year is completed, 2021 could set a record. LT. GOV. DAN PATRICK (R-TX): The Border Patrol down there, good men and women, they’re overrun. Basically, they’re like clerks of the hotel checking people into the country. We have no border security other than what Texas is providing. TOBIN: While Texas sees the greatest number of border crossings, they are increasing at a faster rate in Arizona than all the border states. Trail cameras catch migrants on the move to Tucson or Huma. Agents say they are carrying everything from drugs to guns or just supplies for survival. Apprehensions on the Arizona border jumped from 800 last October under President Trump to 17,000 in August under President Biden. A 1,038 percent increase. SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Word is out this is where you come to claim asylum. They’ll never send you back. If you don't fix that, the good people of this part of Arizona, you’re going to be overrun. [Cuts back to live] TOBIN: And that's a concern all across the southern border. As the deadly summer heat eases allowing for safer passage, traditionally the number of people attempting a crossing only increases from this point forward. Bret? BAIER: Mike Tobin along the border in La Joya, Mike, thank you.

January 6 Committee Votes 9-0 to Refer Steve Bannon to DOJ to Face Criminal Contempt Charges (VIDEO)

Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon told his War Room audience last Friday he will not be testifying before the Jan. 6th Committee.

President Trump urged his supporters to ignore the subpoenas to appear before the Democrat, and Liz Cheney’s, struggle session.

The January 6 Congressional Committee responded to Bannon’s defiance by voting 9-0 to refer Bannon to the DOJ to face criminal contempt charges.

The matter will then head to the House of Representatives for a full vote.

If the House approves, the referral will be sent to the US Attorney’s office in DC which will ultimately decide whether to press charges against Bannon.

San Francisco’s Only In-N-Out Closed For Not Checking Covid Vax Passports

Meanwhile in the Democrat hellhole of San Francisco…

San Francisco’s only In-N-Out burger location in Fisherman’s Wharf was closed by the SF Department of Public Health last Thursday because employees refused to check vaccine passports.

San Francisco requires people to prove they are fully vaccinated against Covid in order to go to restaurants, gyms, theaters, bars, clubs and other indoor establishments.

“After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation,” read a statement from In-N-Out’s Chief Legal and Business Officer Arnie Wensinger.

“As a Company, In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in the highest form of customer service and to us that means serving all Customers who visit us and making all Customers feel welcome. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” he continued.

In-N-Out has since re-opened but only for outdoor dining and takeout after being lectured and intimidated by inspectors from the Department of Public Health.

SFGate reported:

A spokesperson for the San Francisco Department of Public Health confirmed the restaurant was issued a “final” notice of closure on Thursday after public health officials had “directly informed In-N-Out representatives multiple times about the proof of vaccination requirement,” while the location’s property owner, Anchorage Holdings LP, was issued a notice of violation. Health officials first visited the restaurant on Sept. 24 after receiving a complaint via the city’s 311 service line.

“The business was instructed to cease all operations on site immediately because of the threat it poses to public health,” read a statement from the department, noting COVID-19 vaccinations are important for people gathering in public indoor settings, particularly when they are removing their masks to eat and drink, which can make it easier for the virus to spread. “Since the Notice of Closure was issued, the business has taken steps to comply and has since resumed operations for outdoor dining and take-out only.”

Wensinger, however, described the order as “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.”

“We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive,” he wrote.

CNN's Cillizza Remembers Colin Powell...by Focusing on Trump

Most of us would like to remain in this world as long as possible but when we inevitably shuffle off this mortal coil, CNN's Chris Cillizza might be the last person you would want to write your obituary. Why? Because there is a strong chance you would be relegated almost to a sideshow in the remembrance.  Such was the case with Colin Powell, who passed away on Monday.  He was a diplomat, a statesman, and a four-star general as well as the first African-American Secretary of State. However, in Cillizza's account on Monday, "The Colin Powell Republican no longer exists in the Republican Party," this was all shoved to the side in order for CNN Man to indulge in his obsession with Trump, Trump, and even more Trump.  The first Donald Trump outburst by Cillizza begins just four paragraphs down followed by a landslide of obsessive references to the Big Bad Orange Man. Powell's personal journey from potential -- and much-coveted -- Republican presidential candidate in the mid-1990s to pariah within the Trump-ified GOP tells the story of how the party went from one that recognized the changing face of America and the need to adapt its policies as a result to one organized around the often-intolerant views of a single man who, it's worth noting, spent less time as a Republican than Powell did. Even though Powell declined to support two establishment Republicans, John McCain and Mitt Romney, in order to cast his lot and vote with Barack Obama for the presidency long before Trump arrived on the political scene, Cillizza focuses on him as somehow being the "final straw" despite that straw having been broken years earlier for Powell. The rise of Donald Trump in 2016 -- a man who aggressively positioned himself against the very establishment figures that Powell modeled his version of the GOP after -- wound up being the final straw for the retired general. Powell called Trump a "national disgrace," and an "international pariah" -- insisting that the billionaire businessman was leading a "racist" movement in hacked personal emails revealed in September 2016. In late October of that year, Powell revealed that he would be voting for Hillary Clinton. In June 2020, Powell said he would be voting for Joe Biden for president. "I certainly cannot in any way support President Trump this year," he told CNN's Jake Tapper. Trump, never one to overlook a slight, shot back at Powell with this: "Colin Powell, a real stiff who was very responsible for getting us into the disastrous Middle East Wars, just announced he will be voting for another stiff, Sleepy Joe Biden. Didn't Powell say that Iraq had 'weapons of mass destruction?' They didn't, but off we went to WAR!" Whew! That's a lot of Trump in a column supposedly about the passing of Powell. But wait...THERE'S MORE! The very next day Cillizza wrote a sequel in which his Trump obsession  relegated Powell to an even smaller role to the point where he wasn't even mentioned in the title, "Donald Trump (yet again) proves there's no bottom." This time Powell was diminished to the extent that his name only appeared eight times to Trump's eleven obsessive mentions including the title.

Ted Cruz Introduces Bill That Would Send Illegal Immigrants To The Towns Of Rich White Liberals For Processing

In the midst of the ongoing border crisis, Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz filed legislation on Tuesday that would establish processing centers for illegal immigrants in areas such as Martha’s Vineyard and other Democrat-led communities.

Earlier this month, Cruz said: “For the past ten months, President Biden and his administration have willingly surrendered the United States’ southern border to dangerous criminal cartels, with no thought given to the South Texas border communities like McAllen and Del Rio, which are running low on resources from dealing with this massive influx of illegal immigrants,”  The legislation was introduced before Cruz made his statement.

“That’s why today I am introducing this crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as North Hero, Vermont, where Bernie Sanders spends his summers, and Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties,” Cruz continued.

I'm introducing crucial legislation to alleviate the massive overload at the southern border by establishing new ports of entry in Democrat-led communities such as Martha’s Vineyard, where Democrat elites host their cocktail parties. #BidenBorderCrisis https://t.co/3cX9i8NPlk

— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) October 19, 2021

According to the law, 13 new ports of entry would be established in towns across the United States, and all illegal aliens apprehended at Border Patrol Sectors in Texas would be transported to one of the 13 new ports of entry for processing.

The following locations would be home to the thirteen new ports:

Block Island, Rhode Island

Greenwich, Connecticut

Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts

Cambridge (Massachusetts)

Governors Island, New York City

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Nantucket, Massachusetts

Newport, Rhode Island

Scarsdale, New York

Palo Alto, California

Yountville, California

St. Helena, California

North Hero, Vermont

Cruz stated that the Texas government was forced to proclaim a state of disaster and dedicate its law enforcement and financial resources to dealing with the problem. “Local Border Patrol Sectors in Texas continue to be overwhelmed by the volume of illegal aliens at the border. The Texas government has been forced to declare a state of disaster and provide its law enforcement and fiscal resources to address the crisis.”

Cruz reported that he encountered human traffickers and cartel members while traveling to the border in early March. One of his recordings showed him saying, “That’s Mexico and you can see there are three smugglers right there standing on the Mexican side looking at us.”

WATCH: Here Are The Faces Of The Military Men Who Are Potentially Being Lost Due To The Unconstitutional Vaccine Mandate (VIDEO)

At a time when our country is going through a very apparent inflation crisis, you would think that the Biden administration would want more workers not less. However, the vaccine mandates that Biden is pushing, which many agree are unconstitutional, are affecting everyone from hospital workers to military members.

Several military members have made a video stating their names, the jobs they do in their service, and where they have been deployed. These are the faces of the men who will likely be separated from the Military.

Noah Sturgeos Johnson

“My name is Noah Sturgeos Johnson. I’m a specialist in the United States Army. I am currently stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia. As an 88 Kilo watercraft operator. Due to the new order of the COVID-19 vaccine, I will potentially face separation from the United States Army and I’m currently pending a religious exemption.”

Trent West

“My name is Trent West. I’m a petty officer, third class in the United States Navy. I’ve been serving honorably for exactly two years, and I will continue to do so. I’ve been stationed at Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida, and I’m currently stationed Naval Air Station North Island in Coronado, California, and fulfilling my duties. I’ve been assigned to be a lead junior sailor in our mentorship and training program. And I take great pride in doing so. I will potentially be discharged for denying the COVID 19 vaccine.”

Lucas Jeffers

“My name is Lucas Jeffers. I am a corporal in the United States Marine Corps. I have served honorably for three years and four months and will continue to do so. For the entirety of my career, I have been stationed at MCAGCC Twentynine Palms, California. I have deployed to northern Syria and northern Iraq in fulfilling my duties. I have been an FTC chief and an 81 section leader. I will potentially be discharged for refusing the COVID 19 vaccine.”

Ryan Lovell

“My name is Ryan Lovell, I’m a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I’ve served honorably for nine years and four months, I’ve been to Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton deployed to Romania, Israel and Saudi Arabia, in fulfilling my duties as a combat engineer I’ve been a squad leader, section head, and an instructor. I will potentially be discharged for denying the COVID 19 vaccine.”

You would think that the U.S. military would be made up of brave young men who are willing to stand up and fight for what they believe in, unfortunately, it seems as if many of those men will be separated due to a likely unconstitutional mandate. Instead, we are left with “woke” generals who are more interested in combatting ‘white rage’ and losing wars… And of course, don’t forget our newest Admiral Levine.

Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday abruptly ended an interview with 7News and berated the reporter for asking tough questions.

“Ok, we’re over! You should have asked better questions early on. You should have asked questions your viewers care about,” McAuliffe said as he got up from his seat and ended the interview after only 10 minutes.

“Well, we did,” the reporter said.

7News said the reporter gave both Virginia gubernatorial candidates 20 minutes each (read the full transcript of both interviews here).

McAuliffe decided to end the interview after only 10 minutes.

The reporter asked McAuliffe if he wanted to correct the record on his previous comment that parents shouldn’t tell schools what to teach their kids.

He said “no.”

McAuliffe falsely claimed AGAIN that “Critical Race Theory is not taught in Virginia” and said opposing it is “racist.”

The reporter also asked about crime and public safety.

McAuliffe couldn’t take the heat and ran away.

“We do want to point out that the Terry McAuliffe interview is shorter than our interview with Glenn Youngkin – that was not by our doing,” a 7News anchor said.

DOOCY TIME: Peter Spars With Psaki Over Covid Mandates, Govt Spying, Illegal Immigrants

On Tuesday, it was a spicy day inside the White House Briefing Room as Fox’s Peter Doocy brought the heat against Press Secretary Jen Psaki on coronavirus vaccine mandates, flights for illegal immigrants, and the Treasury Department monitoring our bank accounts. And as we’ve seen plenty of times, Doocy received help as other reporters tackling Biden’s influence on the Justice Department, his Build Back Better plan, and the supply chain crisis. Doocy started with new reporting from the New York Post that government flights of illegal immigrants were landing in places like Westchester County, New York in the dead of night: “Why is the administration flying thousands of migrants from the border to Florida and New York in the middle of the night?”     Psaki went the condescending route, quipping that she’s “not sure that it's in the middle of the night, but let me tell you what's happening here.” Doocy pointed out that two such flights landed at 2:13 a.m. and 4:29 a.m. Eastern, so we’re talking “very early in the morning.” Psaki informed Doocy that those flights must then be “earlier than you might like to take a flight,” but ignored his question about why they’re happening at that time as she explained that the Biden administration has a “moral...obligation” and “legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children.” The back-and-forth then shifted to a proposal to have the Treasury monitor bank accounts for people who have as little as “$10,000 cash flow per year,” but Psaki insisted Doocy was misleading (click “expand”): DOOCY: There's this new proposal by Democrats in Congress and the Treasury secretary to start monitoring every bank account that has $10,000 of cash flow per year. So, is the plan to catch billionaire tax cheats by snooping on accounts that just have $10,000 in ‘em?  PSAKI: Well, that's not exactly an accurate description, so let me help you with an accurate description of what is actually happening here and there was a statement by the secretary of Treasury on exactly this where she said, in this statement, so it's to reiterate — she deeply appreciates the work of Chairman Wyden and Chairman Neal leadership on reconciliation and, in particular, the need to close the tax cap. At the core of the discrepancy in the ways types of income are reported to the IRS are opaque income sources frequently of which avoid — frequently avoid scrutiny, while wages in federal benefits are typically subject to full compliance, so people who get W-2s whether they are teachers, firefighters, employees at Fox News, anywhere where they may be getting a double — W-2, that's not what we're talking about here. They're already reporting their income. We're talking about high net worth individuals who are not paying the taxes they owe, and that's what this policy would propose to address. DOOCY: But in the statement that you just cited, it says many top earners avoid paying billions in the taxes that they owned by exploiting the system. So what — why is it that you need to start looking at accounts that just have $10,000 in it? Maybe somebody doesn't get a W-2.  PSAKI: That is — that is not exactly what it does. The $10,000 is the anything under that would not be applicable nor would people who receive W-2's, Peter. What we're talking about here are people who are high net worth individuals who are not paying the taxes they owe. Something we think everybody believes should happen and can help pay for — and a range of important investments to make us more competitive. Doocy then moved to the unintended consequences of vaccine mandates: “If the whole point of a vaccine mandate is to make people safer, but a vaccine mandate also means tons of police and military may walk off the job, then, at the end of the day, does vaccine mandate make people safer?” After Psaki played stupid and wondered where it was that “tons of police and military” personnel were “walking off the job,” Doocy cited a Washington Post item that said hundreds of thousands of soldiers weren’t vaccinated and Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s claim “that five to ten percent of their workforce could walk off the job.” Psaki not only denounced these fears, but defended the mandates (regardless of the consequences) because over 700,000 Americans have died of Covid (click “expand”): DOOCY: But there are other problems in the world than Covid-19: international terror, gang violence, murder, arson, drug dealers —  PSAKI: What — what was — DOOCY: — is there any concern — PSAKI: — what was the — DOOCY: — about being able to — PSAKI: — highest —  DOOCY: — beat things — PSAKI: — what was the highest — what was the number one cause of death among police officers last year? Do you know? Covid-19. So, that's something that we're working to address and police departments are working to address. If you look at Seattle as an example, which I know has been in the some of the reporting, 92 percent of the police force is vaccinated, as are 93 percent of firefighters. 99 percent of Seattle's 11,000 employees have submitted vaccine verification or an exemption — DOOCY: My question is about — PSAKI: — requests [sic]. DOOCY: — public safety, though. All these other problems — terror, murder, robberies, kidnappings — is there any concern that if police forces shrink or if the size of the ready military force shrinks that the United States or localities may not be equipped properly to deal with that and to respond. PSAKI: Peter, more than 700,000 people have died of Covid. Again, it was the number one cause of death among police departments and police officers. It's something that we should take seriously. Departments are trying to save people in their departments, people who work for them. We support that effort, and there's been success across the country in that regard. A few minutes before Doocy, The New York Times’s Michael Shear called out the administration’s failure on the supply chain crisis, pointing out the fact that “[i]t was clear in March of 2020 when Covid hit — that supply chains across the world [had] been disrupted” and people were unable to “get dishwashers and — and furniture and treadmills delivered on time, not to mention all sorts of other things.” Shear tried to keep going, but was interrupted by this tone-deaf joke from Psaki: “The tragedy of the short — treadmill that’s delayed.” Shear plowed ahead, wanting to know why Biden “didn’t...act sooner in a more aggressive way” and was this crisis a sign that the White House has become more of a “reactive” administration instead of an anticipatory one. Also on the economy, EWTN’s Owen Jensen went after the claim that the actual cost of Biden’s infrastructure plans was "zero." Pressed on “why should Americans believe that,” Psaki said it’s “because it won’t.” CBS News Radio’s Steven Portnoy also came ready to be constructive as he followed up on questions asked by Doocy and CBS’s Weijia Jiang on Monday about Biden’s role in the Justice Department (click “expand”): PORTNOY: I want to follow up on a question that both Peter and Weijia asked you yesterday — PSAKI: Sure. PORTNOY: — about how this President views the Justice Department —  PSAKI: Yep. PORTNOY: — as independent. There have been a number of instances where the President has said publicly that he’s either instructed or asked or directed the Justice Department to do different things. Is it — where do you draw the line when you say the Justice Department is making independent decisions?  PSAKI: Investigations. That's where they make independent decisions. There is policy making where there can be discussion, but investigations, which historically, prior to the last administration, the Department of Justice has always had independent purview of, that is what the President expects, what the attorney general expects, and what we will continue to deliver on. PORTNOY: The President said on October 7, he instructed the Justice Department to make sure that we deal with the violence on aircraft. He issued an executive order on July 9 having to do with antitrust, encouraging, although not directing, the attorney general to vigorously enforce it. He said on July 13 the Justice Department would double its enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. Are you describing these things as policy determinations?  PSAKI: Uh, I — well, look, Steve I think the important thing also to convey accurately to people who listen to you is when announcements were made by the Department of Justice and sometimes the President comments on them after those announcements were made, which I think was a case in at least one of those examples you gave and, yes, there are criminal investigations or investigations that are the — under the independent purview of the Justice Department, something that will continue to be under the independent purview of the Justice Department under this administration, and that is different from what was done over the last four years. At the back end of the briefing, the penultimate exchange featured Newsmax’s Emerald Robinson talking about Buttigieg’s unannounced paternity leave, but instead of engaging, Psaki made clear that she, at best, loathes her.

Nets Skip Parents Suing AG for 'Terrorism' Smear, NBC Rails Against Anti-CRT Law in TX

Fed-up parents made waves Tuesday after they filed a “federal civil rights lawsuit” against radical Attorney General Merrick Garland for unjustly suggesting parents protesting at school board meetings were committing “domestic terrorism.” This major development in the fight to de-radicalize liberal school boards went completely unmentioned by the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC, just as did their weekend protest outside the Department of Justice. Instead of reporting on the parents fighting back against the Biden administration’s tyranny, ABC’s World News Tonight was busy touting a transgendered “woman” being installed as a four-star general. On the CBS Evening News, they were hawking and huffing about cops and firefighters who would rather lose their jobs than getting vaccinated. And for their part, NBC Nightly News went the other way and touted a handful of parents and liberal teachers opposing a school board doing away with Critical Race Theory (CRT). “Judeo-Christian public interest law firm American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) brought the suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of parents from Saline, Mich., and Loudoun County, Va.,” reported Caroline Downey for National Review. “Both towns have developed reputations as hot spots for school board fights over equity and inclusion initiatives and critical race theory.” Adding: “The lawsuit claims that the memo authorizes unconstitutional federal intervention in local affairs. In the filing, the AFLC attorneys point out that the unruly behavior of parents at some school board meetings, even yelling or crude language, is still protected speech under the Constitution and questions what right the federal government has to involve itself in cases where parents’ speech crosses the line into threats of violence.” She also noted that the parents contend Garland’s order to have the FBI level it’s counterterrorism assets against American parent “is intended to chill speech.”     Meanwhile, NBC continued its months-long crusade against the Texas town of Southlake, which ousted the liberal members of the school board in an special election earlier this year. And for the second week in a row, they used one person’s gross misinterpretation of Texas law to suggest the anti-CRT board was trying to downplay the Holocaust. “A school board meeting in Southlake, Texas, getting heated after our reporting on a top administrator's controversial comments on the holocaust caught on tape,” announced anchor Lester “fairness is overrated” Holt. “The firestorm coming after the district gained attention nationally over its diversity plan.” While repeatedly showing off a bookcase with caution tape over it (which suggested censorship by the school board even though, in reality, it was publicity stunt pulled off by radical teachers, which was admitted last week), correspondent Antonia Hylton hyped the contentious school board meeting: The meeting the first time residents could publicly raise concerns after the district sent teachers guidance to vet all books. Instructing them to not allow singular narratives that could be “considered offensive.” “All of it in response to a new Texas law, prohibiting teachers from offering perspectives that could make students feel ‘anguish or guilt,’” she scoffed, omitting how it had to do with how CRT poisoned kids with racism. Hylton once again played a highly edited soundbite of one administrator’s misinterpretation of the Texas law to suggest it was designed to downplay the Holocaust. And she once again refused to have a comment from a member of the board or a parent that opposed CRT. And they would likely declare the Loudoun County rapes story (which the networks were still ignoring) was just local news. Then again, “fairness is overrated” for NBC. NBC’s relentless crusade to portray opponents of Critical Race Theory as monsters while they cast aside parents fighting against radical school boards was made possible because lucrative sponsorships from GEICO and Salonpas. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund. The transcript is below, click "expand" to read: NBC Nightly News October 19, 2021 7:14:19 p.m. Eastern LESTER HOLT: Let’s turn now to new developments of a story we first brought you last week. A school board meeting in Southlake, Texas, getting heated after our reporting on a top administrator's controversial comments on the holocaust caught on tape. The firestorm coming after the district gained attention nationally over its diversity plan. Here’s Antonia Hilton. [Cuts to video] UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN 1: You say I’m divisive? You're divisive. ANTONIA HYLTON: In Southlake, tensions high yet again at a school board meeting. JAKE BERMAN (former student): I was subject to a rash of bullying almost all of which was anti-Semitic in nature. I received everything from jokes about my nose to gas chambers. HYLTON: Jake Berman, former Southlake student, who is Jewish, opened up about past bullying so severe he says he contemplated suicide. His parents eventually pulling him from the school. UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN 2: The blame is right here in this room. HYLTON: The meeting the first time residents could publicly raise concerns after the district sent teachers guidance to vet all books. Instructing them to not allow singular narratives that could be “considered offensive.” LINDSEY GARCIA (Southlake, Texas teacher): Please help restore my faith in this district and in the school board. HYLTON: All of it in response to a new Texas law, prohibiting teachers from offering perspectives that could make students feel “anguish or guilt.” Last week, NBC News obtained exclusive, secretly recorded audio. In it the director of curriculum Gina Peddy told educators to balance books about the Holocaust with an opposing view. GINA PEDDY: … make sure that if you have a book on the holocaust that you have one that has opposing – that has other perspectives. UNIDENTIFIED TEACHER: How do you oppose the holocaust? HYLTON: Gina Peddy did not respond to messages requesting comment.   In response to Peddy’s remark, Carroll superintendent issued an apology stating there “are not two sides of the Holocaust” and pledging to work with his staff to clarify the policy. Parents expressed concern about the controversy. KATY PRATT: The teacher who was reprimanded over the book and those teachers who recorded the training session, and the administrator are all victims of this toxic environment. HYLTON: Berman, urging more needs to be done to protect students and teachers. BERMAN: This is a crossroads for this state and for this district. One path is an opportunity to lead and be on the right side of history and the other will cost you and your children a quality education. HYLTON: A message, he hopes, leads to a brighter future for all. Antonia Hilton, NBC News, New York.

How rising UK Covid cases could be ‘a compelling argument for boosters’

Dr. Kavita Patel explains why the surging number of Covid cases in the United Kingdom could be a compelling argument for booster shots.

What Are They Hiding? OSHA Announces They Will Not Enforce Policy That Requires Employers Record Their Worker’s Adverse Reactions to Covid-19 Vaccine “At Least Through May 2022”

In a dramatic shift in their enforcement policy that concerns the recordability of adverse reactions from vaccines, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a new Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) explaining that employers no longer need to report adverse reactions that their employees contract from COVID-19 vaccines.

The change was made because OSHA and other federal agencies are “working diligently” to push propaganda that compels people to take the experimental vaccine. The worker protection agency does not even want to hint at “any appearance of discouraging workers” from receiving the jab – as a result, they are no longer going to enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements that make businesses report vaccine side effects.

The OSHA website FAQ now reads:

“DOL and OSHA, as well as other federal agencies, are working diligently to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations.

OSHA does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts.

As a result, OSHA will not enforce 29 CFR 1904’s recording requirements to require any employers to record worker side effects from COVID-19 vaccination at least through May 2022. We will reevaluate the agency’s position at that time to determine the best course of action moving forward.”

The policy change will run at least through May of 2022 and applies in all situations – including if an employer requires, recommends, or incentivizes employees to receive the vaccine.

NEW – The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will not enforce 29 CFR 1904's recording requirements to require employers to record worker side effects from #COVID19 vaccination.https://t.co/3WZckNOwrV pic.twitter.com/dxozonYnA3

— Disclose.tv (@disclosetv) October 19, 2021

When OSHA updated their website with the new guidelines, the federal agency also removed three earlier FAQs, which had fully explained an employer’s responsibility to report adverse reactions depending on whether the vaccines were required or simply recommended (compelled).

In the previous version of the FAQ, the agency made it clear that adverse reactions from COVID-19 vaccines that are required by an employer would need to be recorded, but did not mandate reporting requirements if the business had only recommended their workers take the vaccine.

The two scenarios used to be properly differentiated on the agency’s web page which made it unquestionable when a business was exempt from reporting the vaccine side effects, stating that “the vaccine must be truly voluntary” in order to qualify.

From the now-deleted OSHA FAQ regarding vaccine side effect reporting:

“Note that for this discretion to apply, the vaccine must be truly voluntary.  For example, an employee’s choice to accept or reject the vaccine cannot suffer any repercussions from their choice

If employees are not free to choose whether or not to receive the vaccine without fearing adverse action, then the vaccine is not merely “recommended” and employers should consult the above FAQ regarding COVID-19 vaccines that are a condition of employment.”

But now almost every business – especially the larger corporations – is requiring workers to take the experimental jab to keep their jobs. Thanks to OSHAs preemptive change in policy, they no longer have to report ANY adverse reactions until the middle of next year.

Instead of being open, honest, and transparent about the vaccines, the federal government has worked tirelessly to cover up anything that would be considered negative towards the Covid jab.

What are they hiding?

If the vaccine was so safe – or if these authoritarians cared about saving lives – wouldn’t they want adverse reactions to be recorded and looked into?

Well, the problem is they don’t care, and the vaccine – along with its poor efficacy – has had terrible side effects for many people.

The public health experts and the corrupt politicians on Capitol Hill have demonstrated time and again that this ‘pandemic’ was always just a farce to seize more power.

“The Committee Isn’t Seeking the Truth, It’s Seeking Communist-Style Political Persecution of President Trump and the America First Patriots” – President Trump on the Unconstitutional Actions of the Jan 6 Committee

Yesterday President Trump released a statement regarding the unconstitutional actions by the Jan 6 Congressional Committee that is acting like communist prosecutors.  Their actions are atrocious.

Here is the statement in its entirety.

Today, President Donald J. Trump filed a lawsuit in defense of the Constitution, the Office of the President, and the future of our nation, all of which the sham Unselect Committee is trying to destroy. The fact is America is under assault by Pelosi’s Communist-style attempt to silence and destroy America First patriots through this hyper-partisan and illegitimate investigation.

o    The January 6th Committee is a partisan sham to distract Americans from the Democrats’ policies that are killing and robbing Americans. For example:

o    The Border crisis is flooding our communities with drugs and gangs, while costing taxpayers billions.

o    The Democrats’ mismanagement of COVID exposed America’s elderly to a deadly disease and then in many cases, forced them to die alone.

o    By defunding the police and embracing criminals, Democrats have made our cities less safe.

o    The unconstitutional mandates are destroying the economy.

The media is complicit in advancing the Committee’s unconstitutionally flawed request.

This committee exposed itself as a sham by requesting documents which serve no legitimate legislative purpose—what does President Trump’s campaign polling data from Florida have to do with an investigation into January 6th?

The Legal Argument—Three Pillars

  1. No Legitimate Legislative Purpose: The legislative committees’ request fails to meet the basic requirement of fulfilling a legislative purpose. The request is not just overly broad, it requests documents including campaign polling data—what does Congress hope to learn from this?
    1. Newsflash: Polling shows Biden’s approval cratering and 2022 slipping out of Democrats’ grasp—no wonder the Democrats and the media want to distract America from: The surrender in Afghanistan, skyrocketing inflation, a border crisis, crippling COVID mandates, and a stalled legislative agenda.
  2. Former Presidents have inherent Constitutional Rights of Privilege: An incumbent administration does not have the constitutional authority to unilaterally waive the executive privilege of a previous administration—especially one so recent.  If it did, then executive privilege doesn’t exist, including for Joe Biden.
    1. Newsflash: No one is following this argument more closely than: (1) Hunter Biden and his art dealer, (2) The Woke Generals and Intel leaders who advised the Surrender in Afghanistan and the bombing of innocent civilians and children (3) Big Tech who has been actively engaged with the Biden administration to subvert Democracy through dark money organizations
  3. Time for Review: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has not even had the time to compile and organize the documents being requested by Congress—which is the largest request in American History. President Trump and Joe Biden should be afforded the time to diligently review any protected and privileged documents before it is released to the public.
    1. Newsflash: The Committee is motivated by one thing: delivering political wins for the Democrats. That’s why they’ve set a rapid timetable that steamrolls the Constitution, legal precedent, and established process. The Committee isn’t seeking the truth, it’s seeking Communist-style political persecution of President Trump and the America First patriots who served their country honorably.

President Trump is right.

DISASTER: Biden Hits New Low of 28 Percent Approval by Independents in New Quinnipiac Poll

Joe Biden’s approval rating hit a new low of 37 percent in the Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday, down from 38 percent two weeks ago. Biden’s disapproval is at 52 percent, down from 53 percent two weeks ago. But the big news from the poll is Biden’s approval among independents has plummeted to 28 percent, down from 32 percent two weeks ago.

Last week Biden’s approval among independents just barely dipped into the 20s, at 29.8 percent in the Economist/YouGov poll. The Q-Poll confirms Biden’s collapse among independents.

Quinnipiac buried the lede of Biden’s collapse with independents in their report on their poll, focusing instead on President Trump’s improving numbers among Republicans and improving support for a border wall: “78% Of Republicans Want To See Trump Run For President In 2024, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Americans Now Split On Border Wall As Opposition Softens”

Other observations from the poll:

Biden is now underwater with women at 43 percent approve, 45 percent disapprove. Men’s approve disapprove of Biden is a brutal 30/59.

Biden has crashed with Hispanics who give him an approve/disapprove of 33/51. White’s approve/disapprove of Biden is 33/59. Black approve/disapprove of Biden is down in dangerous territory for a Democrat, 65/22.

Leaked Contracts Reveal Pfizer Used its Power to “Shift Risk and Maximize Profits” in Negotiations with Governments

Pfizer used its power to “shift risk and maximize profits” according to leaked, unredacted contracts obtained by Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy group.

Pfizer has been accused of bullying and shaking down governments during Covid vaccine negotiations – much of their wheeling and dealing has been done in secret.

New contracts reveal Pfizer took a hard line in push for profits with the least amount of exposure and risk.

The “contracts consistently place Pfizer’s interests before public health imperatives,” said Zain Rizvi, the Public Citizen researcher who released the report.

Sharon Castillo, a spokeswoman for Pfizer, said that confidentiality clauses were “standard in commercial contracts” and “intended to help build trust between the parties, as well as protect the confidential commercial information exchanged during negotiations and included in final contracts.”

Joe Biden and many Democrat officials have imposed Covid vaccine mandates because of Pfizer’s demands and secret contract negotiations – and as a result, Americans are losing their jobs.

Washington Post reported (emphasis ours):

Public Citizen found common themes across contracts, including not only secrecy but also language to block donations of Pfizer doses. Disputes are settled in secret arbitration courts, with Pfizer able to change the terms of key decisions, including delivery dates, and demand public assets as collateral.

Experts who reviewed the terms of contracts with foreign governments suggested that some demands were extreme. In contracts reached with Brazil, Chile, Colombia and the Dominican Republic, those states forfeited “immunity against precautionary seizure of any of [their] assets.”

“It’s almost as if the company would ask the United States to put the Grand Canyon as collateral,” said Lawrence Gostin, a professor of public health law at Georgetown University.

The company rejected that logic. “Pfizer has not interfered and has absolutely no intention of interfering with any country’s diplomatic, military, or culturally significant assets,” Castillo said. “To suggest anything to the contrary is irresponsible and misleading.”

Some contract demands appear to have slowed vaccine rollouts in countries. At least two countries walked away from negotiations and publicly criticized the company’s demands. However, both later reached agreements with Pfizer.

In contracts with Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Peru, governments were required to sign a document that says each “expressly and irrevocably waives any right of immunity which either it or its assets may have or acquire in the future.” The first four also were required to waive immunity against “precautionary” seizure of their assets.

Public Citizen found contracts that required governments “‘to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Pfizer’ from and against any and all suits, claims, actions, demands, damages, costs and expenses related to vaccine intellectual property.”

Facebook News Tab Will Change Amid Traffic Drops

On Tuesday, Facebook announced Tuesday that it will soon be making changes to its “News Tab.” The move came after the tech giant originally said in January that it would make the News Tab “less political.” “People don’t want politics and fighting to take over their experience,” said founder Mark Zuckerberg at the time. Of course, Facebook has long received criticism for picking and choosing what news can be found under the tab and whether or not such “news” is important. The company was accused of allowing “misinformation” to boost the platform’s engagement. Now, Facebook’s Bulletin newsletter writers will soon be included in the News Tab, making the platform’s monopoly on the media its users view even more significant. According to Axios, the News Tab contributed to over 30 percent of news link referral traffic for Facebook in the U.S., UK, and Germany. Publishers have praised Facebook for the content boost that was a product of the mutually beneficial relationship. "We appreciate the fact that Facebook is recognizing the value of quality journalism and paying to run it on their platform," a spokesperson at BuzzFeed told Axios. However, research suggested that Facebook’s referral traffic to media publishers has remained flat, according to Parse.ly, an online dashboard that monitors traffic. The platform’s content moderation methods do not appear to be doing it any favors. “Parse.ly's traffic sources dashboard provide[s] insight into referral traffic to the 2500+ sites in Parse.ly's network of online media sites,” the websites said of its services. “Tracking referral data to these sites by date and traffic source helps digital publishers to understand where visitors come from.” Parse.ly’s records indicate a drop in Facebook’s external referrals. Predictably, Facebook has denied the traffic drop-off. “Over the last 6 weeks, including over the weekend, we’ve seen how documents can be mischaracterized,” John Pinette, Facebook’s Vice President of Communications tweeted from the branded account. “Obviously, not every employee at Facebook is an executive; not every opinion is the company’s position.” “Right now 30+ journalists are finishing up a coordinated series of articles based on thousands of pages of leaked documents,” Pinette continued, seemingly referring to The Wall Street Journal’s recent series detailing the platform’s woes. “We hear that to get the docs, outlets had to agree to the conditions and a schedule laid down by the PR team that worked on earlier leaked docs.” The company argued that the negative reports were not indicative of the platform’s success. “A curated selection out of millions of documents at Facebook can in no way be used to draw fair conclusions about us. Internally, we share work in progress and debate options,” Pinette concluded. “Not every suggestion stands up to the scrutiny we must apply to decisions affecting so many people. To those news organizations who would like to move beyond an orchestrated ‘gotcha’ campaign, we are ready to engage on the substance.” 

Jorge Ramos Absolves De Blasio, Cuomo From Rotten COVID response in NY

From reading Jorge Ramos's latest editorial column at Univision.com, you’d think that New York is governed by invisible forces who’ve brought about the mythical reawakening of a rotten Big Apple. Nowhere in the 973-word opinion piece entitled "The New New York: City of Survivors" did Ramos mention Mayor Bill de Blasio or former governor Andrew Cuomo (D) -- the ones responsible for New York's disastrous handling of the COVID crisis. Ramos offered his take after spending a couple days there as an elite tourist, staying at a midtown hotel, doing the rounds of international dining, and other perks (mani-pedi) in a city that, according to him, was so much better with fewer people. Never mind the closed businesses, struggling restaurants, commercial and residential real estate in shambles, rampant unemployment and crime. In his own words, “Without so many visitors, there are parts of the island that look like bucolic provincial neighborhoods”. Amazing how Ramos managed to absolve both de Blasio and Cuomo from turning New York into a “city of survivors”: New York is awake again. I remember, sadly, the night images of ambulances, the removal of bodies of Covid victims from buildings, the paramedics who were not enough, the Navy ship docked at the port in case the hospitals collapsed, the uncertainty when there was no vaccine or trusted information, and the applause at sundown from people in their windows for front line workers. "Night images of ambulances, the removal of bodies of COVID victims"... YES, we saw them, the bodies of elderly men and women killed at nursing homes thanks to Cuomo's catastrophic executive order, the unused Navy hospital ship sent by then-President Donald Trump, rampant crime, and the first responders that could lose their jobs thanks to vaccine mandates. The list could go on and on. But this is Jorge Ramos we're talking about, the self-proclaimed champion of standing opposite to power. But, as Special Editorial Advisor to the CEO of Univision, Ramos stands right next to power. And the privilege of such power is the production of such detached and self-indulgent columns as this one.  ​Let advertisers like Acura know what you think about the rampant bias in Spanish-speaking national news. Write them here.  Click on "expand" to read the complete opinion column as published by Univision.com on October 17, 2021: The city that never sleeps was sleeping. Or at least it looked that way at the new and magnificent terminal at the Laguardia airport after midnight. My flight was late, and there were no taxis. Not one. But all of a sudden an upbeat Ecuadoran who makes a living transporting stranded passengers like me saw me and took me to the city. Cesar – he said that was his name – drives overnights, is recovering from a heart attack and feels lucky that the Coronavirus did not put him in bed, like it did to his business partner. He helped me to avoid having to wait for an Uber or public transportation. New York was indeed awake after all. The city seems changed. Fewer people, less traffic, fewer shops, offices and restaurants open, fewer tourists, less intense. But behind every New Yorker there is a survivor, someone who projects that trendy new word, resilience. New York was hit hard. In this city of 8 million people, more than 1 million had Covid and more than 34,000 died – 10 times more than in the 9/11 terror attacks. The first thing you notice in New York after the worst of the pandemic is that the streets don't have as many taxis as before. Uber and Lyft have taken the yellow out of the city. It's true, and there are also fewer traffic jams and a new respect for bike messengers who deliver packages and food and became essential during the pandemic. They are the heroes on two wheels. There are tons of commercial spaces for rent and buildings with darkened offices. Property prices have dropped. “It's a correction,” I was told by a real estate agent, with forced optimism. And that forced me to rediscover the city, to find out who's still there and who left. My favorite Neapolitan pizza place – with the thick crust and marinara sauce – in lower Manhattan is closed and promising to reopen this fall. But in a single weekend I managed to eat exquisite Greek, Italian and Japanese dishes. Many restaurants have taken over the sidewalks and even part of the street to serve clients outdoors. And they all asked for my ID and vaccination card, for which I was grateful. Without so many visitors, there are parts of the island that look like bucolic provincial neighborhoods. That's enchanting when you're surrounded by skyscrapers of 50 floors or more. What also stands out is that there appear to be fewer workers doing the same work. That explains the delays: fewer mechanics for airplanes, fewer waiters in restaurants, one single employee in charge of the whole store – waiting lines and stories of survival. Everyone has a story to tell in the city that was the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States at the start of that fateful 2020. Two examples. An employee of a Midtown hotel told me proudly how he survived during the 14 months the hotel was closed, using his retirement fund and a bit of help from the federal government. And out of the 10 employees at a nail salon near Central Park, only four are left. They are paid by the hour, and work only three days per week. But one of the four told me she appreciates the fact she's working, earning enough to avoid an embarrassing return to South America. New York is one of those cities that sets the pace and is copied by many others. That's why it's important to check how it's coming out of the crisis. Eric Adams, an African American, will surely be the next mayor of New York. He won the Democratic primary and is the clear favorite to win the Nov. 2 election. I spoke with him during the 20 th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when he was a policeman. What will be his key challenge as mayor, I asked? “That people believe again,” he told me. “There are too many people who have been denied the services of our city. They don't believe they can be safe. They don't believe their children can get an education. They don't believe they can afford to live in the city. I want to tell New Yorkers that just like we came back from a terrorist attack, we have to come back from Covid, from climate change and from violence. We have to believe, again, that we are strong," he added. In Times Square, the city's commercial and entertainment center, everyone seems very strong and immune to Covid. Or maybe they are bored and tired of so much isolation. On one Saturday night, a wave of people caught me and pushed me from one corner to another. My two vaccine shots and mask did not seem enough with so many others around me. But the crowd, the noise, the music blasting, the movement and the sense of feeling like part of a collective for the first time in more than a year filled any heart with energy. (My two Covid tests after the visit were negative. Luckily.) All of that is over. I like the new New York. It is a city of survivors. But it is also more livable, more human and stronger than ever. I never doubted they would get over it – again! New York reminds me of a song by Nacha Guevara that defiantly proclaims, “Better times, worse times, I have lived. And here I am.”

“Overall We Can Contain the Evergrande Risk” Says China’s Central Bank But What About Other Companies, Banks and Government Risks?

The Evergrande solvency crisis in China continues as well as solvency issues with other companies, banks, and local governments.  Nothing has changed.

MSN Money reported earlier today:

The Evergrande Group found its plan to sell a majority stake in its property services unit to Hopson Development delayed after failing to gain approval from the Guangdong provincial government overseeing the company’s restructuring, according to Reuters.

This keeps Evergrande, the world’s most indebted property developer, facing dues of over $300 billion, away from the $2.6 billion it would have earned from the deal in wake of a Saturday deadline on the 30-day grace period following its missed bond payment in September.

Along with this shelved deal, China saw its real estate sector take further hits. Sinic Holdings declared default and Kaisa Group saw its credit rating downgraded. This follows announcements that China Properties Group defaulted on a loan and that Fantasia could not make recent payments, along with other companies facing credit rating drops.

Despite the recent sequence of events, the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central banking authority, told creditors to stay calm.

“Economic growth has been slowed down a little bit, but the trajectory of economic recovery remains unchanged,” Yi Gang, the bank’s governor, said on Saturday. “Overall, we can contain the Evergrande risk.”

China says they can contain the Evergrande risk but can they contain the risk of the other companies facing default, or the banks that hold trillions in off-balance sheet liabilities, or the off-balance liabilities of its local governments?

As noted above, Evergrande is the largest property management company in the world based on liabilities but there are other companies facing similar fates in China.   It is five times the size of Lehman which was involved in the 2008 US property crisis.

Three More Companies Join Evergrande – Unable to Meet Debt Obligations – Total Debt of Nearly Half a Trillion USD Facing Solvency Issues in China

TGP reported in May 2019 that there simply were not enough people in China where massive property complexes were being built that could afford to live in these units. 

Therefore many properties throughout China sat unoccupied, and there is a cost to this.  As we noted, Bloomberg reported in September 2018 there are numerous companies in similar share as Evergrande:

Cash-to-short-term debt levels at more than 80 publicly traded real estate companies tracked by Bloomberg were 133 percent on average in the first half, the worst since the first six months of 2015 and down from 297 percent a year earlier. Almost a quarter of developers sport a ratio below 50 percent.

In addition, Bloomberg noted:

But while business has been booming, developers have also been piling on the debt. Firms have been selling more bonds in the domestic market — and at the cheapest rates as investors shrug off default concerns. Those with dollar-denominated obligations, meanwhile, face higher borrowing costs as the U.S. Federal Reserves continues on its tightening path.

The Gateway Pundit warned that the amount of debt related to China’s over-development is massive. The total amount is unknown with S&P estimating the amount of debt not reported by local communities being over $6 trillion:

China may be sitting on a hidden debt pile of as much as 40 trillion yuan ($6 trillion), concealed off-balance-sheet by the country’s local governments, according to research from S&P Global Ratings.

Many local governments in China raise debt and hold it off their balance sheet, in order to avoid lending limits imposed by central authorities. S&P says that this is a growing problem within the country, and that the amount of debt held this way has likely ballooned in recent years.

TGP reported how a tremendous economic blowup may be imminent:

Not only is the level of hidden debt held by local governments in the world’s second largest economy rising, but so too is the risk of those debts being defaulted on. Much of the debt is held by so-called local government financing vehicles (LGFVs), and S&P reports that central government may be willing to let these vehicles file for bankruptcy in the future.

“Default risk of LGFVs is on the rise. China has opened up the possibility of insolvent LGFVs filing for bankruptcy, but managing the default aftermath is a formidable task for top leadership,” the report noted….

The country’s total non-financial sector debt, which includes household, corporate and government debt, will surge to almost 300% of GDP by 2022, up from 242% in 2016. Fears abound that if this debt pile continues to grow, a spectacular blow up could be imminent.

Recently we reported that the local government debt in China off-balance sheet is closer to $8 trillion:

China’s Local Governments Have ‘Hidden’ Debt Estimated at $8 Trillion or Nearly Half of the Country’s GDP

China’s banks are also at risk.  Not only do they hold the debt of much of the property investments in China, but they also are engaged in other off-balance sheet instruments known as WMP’s which increased by over $1 trillion in 2015 alone per the Wall Street Journal.

Chinese banks collectively have an enormous balance sheet, enough of a worry for investors on its own. Then there is the off-the-books shadow of a balance sheet, which is looming increasingly large.

The shadow is cast by the surge in issuance of so-called wealth-management products, or WMPs, high-yielding investments sold to bank customers looking for yields higher than what China’s low deposit rates offer. This may sound familiar. A similar surge in shadow-banking products in the early part of the decade caught investors and regulators unaware.

With trillions in off-balance sheet or risky debt, China is in horrible shape.  This has been coming for some time.

Democrat Maxine Waters Paid Her Daughter $81,000 in Campaign Funds During Fiscal Year 2021 – Bringing Grand Total to $1.2 Million Paid Since 2003

Maxine Waters is one of the most corrupt members of Congress.

The California Democrat paid her daughter $81,000 in campaign funds for the fiscal year 2021.

This brings the grand total given to Max Max’s daughter, Karen Waters, to more than $1.2 million in campaign payments since 2003.

Recall, during the 2020 election cycle, Maxine Waters paid her daughter $240,000 to run a slate-mailer operation.

The New York Post reported:

Rep. Maxine Waters, chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, paid her own daughter more than $80,000 out of campaign coffers in that last fiscal year.

The California Democrat paid $81,650 in campaign funds to her daughter Karen Waters, according to campaign finance records reviewed by The Post.

The total was paid in 12 payments across several months during Fiscal Year 2021 for “slate mailer management” fees and “GOTV” — or “Get Out the Vote” services.

The payments mirror ones the congresswoman made to her daughter last election cycle when she paid her around $240,000 for work under the same labels.

More than $212,600 in disbursements to Karen were broken down into 26 entries such as “slate mailer management” fees, “office expenses” and “canvassing” between March 2019 and September 2020.

It was previously reported by Fox News that Waters had paid her daughter $74,000 in donor cash through September.
