America the land of technocracy - The Lima News by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

People are simply afraid.

To understand what has been happening here in America for the last several years you’ll have to understand what technocracy is. It becomes clear in the actions of big tech, media mob, giant corporations, radical riots, radical attacks and the destruction of Americas freedoms and values.

The rhetoric spread of double-standard and racism has been pushed on people in order to make one submit to radical left beliefs. You must look at technocracy. Technocracy infiltrated our educational system in the 1960s and into our government under President Carter. The European Union and many world governments have given a green light to technocracy. It is also known as the great reset. Agenda 21, The World Economic Forum.

Patrick Woods explains what it is. He is an economist, financial analyst and American constitutionalist and has been researching and understanding technocracy for 45 years. He also explains how we can control this.

Global elites Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg are technocrats. Jack Dorsey is a technocrat and an anarchist. Several Hollywood celebrities and Dr. Fauci are technocrats or support it. I have read that the new green deal such as solar farms effects local climates, warming the surrounding air and causing more rain. In our area possibly more humidity which can cause health issues and property damage. 5G also warms the environment.

Understanding technocracy you then will understand the mayhem, the hate and the ostracizing of others the radical left is unleashing in this country. The radical left is now censoring anything they don’t agree with. They are ushering Nazism into America.

A George Lucas 1971 Movie, “THX 1138,” shows a technocracy way of life.

Oh no! Run in Circles! Cover yourself in Ashes!

On the first day of his presidency, Joe Biden commenced the most sweeping expansion of LGBTQ rights in American history. In a historic executive order, Biden ordered every federal agency to clarify that civil rights laws prohibiting sex discrimination also prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. This move will extend nondiscrimination protections to millions of LGBTQ people with regard to housing, education, immigration, credit, health care, military service, Peace Corps service, family and medical leave, welfare, criminal justice, law enforcement, transportation, federal grants, and so much more.

While some of Biden’s executive orders may be vulnerable to court challenges, this one is essentially bulletproof. It merely implements the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, something the Trump administration refused to do. In Bostock, the Supreme Court held that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 bars employment discrimination against LGBTQ people. Title VII does not explicitly mention sexual orientation or gender identity; rather, it bars workplace discrimination “because of sex.” But the court held that it is impossible to discriminate against LGBTQ workers without taking their sex into account.

Trump, Daines and Rosendale stood up for our country -- Bozeman (MT) Daily Chronicle by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

The Common Clay of the American West.

Thank you President Trump, Sen. Daines and Rep. Rosendale for standing up for our country.

The storming of the Capitol was caused by the left, far more than Trump. Nonstop hate for Trump and his supporters has resulted in destruction and crime across our country. There’s also a double standard when it comes to impeachment. Consider Democrat Jerrold Nadler proclaiming the following when Clinton was in office:

“There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other ... Such an impeachment will produce a divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions.”

A few facts for you to consider:

The Right believes in freedom, liberty, the constitution, free enterprise, opportunity, peace through strength, good education for all, law and order, legal immigration, freedom of speech, the right of citizens to defend themselves, religious freedom, ending wars, energy independence, full employment, minimizing abortion, lower taxes, and fewer stifling government regulations on business. Our “America First” mantra simply says it is time for U.S. taxpayers to no longer be taken advantage of in financing foreign wars, foreign security, foreign trade, and foreign employment.

The Left, on the other hand, believes in the worshiping of government, cancel culture that erases history, teaching children we are a racist nation, paying billions of dollars to murderous regimes (Iran), defunding police forces, breaking immigration laws, open borders, destroying free speech, eliminating the right to bear arms, raising taxes, bankrupting our nation with pie in the sky programs that are guaranteed to fail, and a dangerous fascination with Democratic Socialism based on godless Marxism that has resulted in catastrophic failure wherever it’s been tried.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Keeps Promise, Files Articles Of Impeachment Against Joe Biden by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I love these websites.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA) revealed in a video message Thursday that she has kept her promise to file articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden on his first full day in office. “I just filed articles of impeachment on President Joe Biden, we’ll see how this goes,” Greene stated in the brief video message.

As National File reported last week, Greene had previously promised to introduce articles of impeachment against Biden on his first full day in office:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced during an appearance on Newsmax TV Wednesday evening that she plan to file articles of impeachment against Democrat President-elect Joe Biden “on behalf of the American people” on January 21, the day after Biden is inaugurated.

Responding to a question about a major announcement she had planned, Greene stated, “I would like to announce on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure sure that our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a President of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the Presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, foreign Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies.”

“On January 21st I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden,” Greene said.

Biden now must grapple with the embarrassing distinction of becoming the first President to face the threat of impeachment within his first week in office.

Alabama Papers are Way too Liberal

Let’s be clear; those who trespassed into the Capitol building should be brought to justice for the laws they broke. But let’s be clear about something else; this is the fault of the Socialist Democrat party and those who support their tactics of harassment, intolerance, race-baiting, and class warfare. For years now they have taken to the streets with their agenda to orchestrate one-party control. They’ve incited, encouraged, politically and financially supported domestic terrorism against our elected officials, our citizens, and our communities. They’ve pushed the common man to the brink of desperation. Nothing could be more dangerous for our nation.

Now with the unrest in Washington D.C., they suddenly want to make you believe they are outraged by the violence and are demanding law and order. What they’re actually after is one-party fascist rule of this country. They scheme to silence and punish anyone who disagrees with them. They have the full support of the left wing media and big tech in this endeavor. They are everything they claim to be against and many in this country are buying the Big Lie. Darren Stevens’ Jan. 3 letter to the editor was spot on. The Dothan Eagle is complacent with the aims of the socialists running the Democrat party. This paper cover to cover is saturated with left-wing leaning ideology including Associated Press articles designed to inflame, indoctrinate and propagandize for the leftist cause. The occasional token conservative article is posted to mislead you into thinking this paper is a fair and balanced news outlet. This paper is part of the propaganda arm of the well-oiled political machine pushing for Socialist/Communist one party rule in this country. On Jan. 21 we will see that one-party rule go into overdrive. Your freedom is in the balance.

Poor Little Snowflake

To the Editor:

I just received your free Nashua edition with the black-fisted RISE UP poster on a Nashua High School fence. I’m old enough to remember when that sign represented not only the Black Power movement but also violent Marxist revolution. What that tells me is that not only are your editorial staff clueless as to its inflammatory meaning, but that our kids are being indoctrinated and not educated. It is no wonder that ignorant young Marxist-fascist wannabes are burning America to the ground.

So please, explain to myself and your readers exactly what RISE UP means in that picture. Or are you clueless about that, too? It’s a bad reflection on the paper if the New Hampshire Union Leader didn’t know all this at time of publication. It’s even worse if you did know and published it anyway in this seething toxic American political environment.

On a related note, I was a crew member of the USS Midway in 1982 when we pulled a thousand boat people out of the South China Sea, they risked life and limb fleeing communist Vietnam precisely because of this kind of poisonous ideology. Smarten up, will you?

Know what you’re publishing before you shove this kind of stuff in the faces of your readers who know all too well exactly what that poster means and do not like it one bit.

Undercover Chinese survey ship intercepted in Indonesian waters by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Remember when the Chinese Feared Us?

A Chinese government survey ship was intercepted "running dark" without broadcasting its position via AIS (Automated Identification System) by Indonesian officials. The incident is the latest twist in an ongoing maritime saga that has also seen Chinese uncrewed underwater vehicles (UUVs) found in Indonesia's territorial waters.

The survey ship, Xiang Yang Hong 03, left its base at Sanya on Hainan Island, China, on the morning of Jan. 6. It was intercepted by the Indonesian Coast Guard near the Sunda Strait during the week of January 11. All ships transiting the strategically important strait are required to be on AIS and when confronted the crew Xiang Yang Hong 03 claimed that its AIS was damaged, according to press reports.

"Indonesia requires all ships transiting the world's only archipelagic sea lanes to have functioning AIS and forbids them from carrying out oceanographic research," according to Asia Times.

"The Maritime Security Agency said the Xiang Yang Hong 03 killed its transponder twice while passing through the Natuna islands at the southern end of the South China Sea and later in the Karimata Strait, northeast of the island of Belitung."

The interception comes after a Chinese made Sea Wing UUV was discovered in Indonesian waters in late December. It was the latest of at least four Sea Wing gilder UUVs discovered in the region. Gilders are commonly used to gather data about currents, acoustics, and the maritime environment. They use forward momentum created by repeatedly sinking and then rising in a method called variable-buoyancy propulsion. Many countries operate underwater gliders. The main U.S. equivalent is the Slocum G3, which the US.. Navy has deployed as the LBS-G (Littoral Battlespace Sensing-Glider).

Enjoy.

President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday nominated Pennsylvania health chief Dr. Rachel Levine to be assistant secretary at the Health and Human Services Department -- and she would be the first openly transgender official to be confirmed for a position by the Senate.

A pediatrician and formerly Pennsylvania's chief physician, Levine was appointed to the state's top health position by Gov. Tom Wolf in 2017.

"Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic -- no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability -- and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond," Biden said in a statement.

"She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration's health efforts."

"President-elect Biden and I look forward to working with her to meet the unprecedented challenges facing Americans and rebuild our country in a way that lifts everyone up," added Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Levine has also been a professor of pediatrics and psychiatry at the Penn State University College of Medicine. She is a graduate of Harvard and the Tulane University School of Medicine.

Last month, Biden nominated California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to lead the Health and Human Services Department.

Phil Spector, Famed Producer Convicted of Murder, Dead at 80 by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Honestly, I could see him as a Lizard Person.

Phil Spector, a monumentally influential music producer whose “Wall of Sound” style revolutionized the way rock music was recorded in the early 1960s, died Saturday at the age of 80.

Spector’s life was tumultuous and ultimately tragic; as groundbreaking as his studio accomplishments were, those achievements were all but overshadowed by his 2009 conviction for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

Spector’s death was confirmed by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, “California Health Care Facility inmate Phillip Spector was pronounced deceased of natural causes at 6:35 p.m. on Saturday, January 16, 2021, at an outside hospital. His official cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner in the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.”

Spector adopted what he famously referred to as “a Wagnerian approach to rock & roll,” calling the hit records he assembled in the Sixties for artists like the Ronettes, the Crystals, Darlene Love and the Righteous Brothers “little symphonies for the kids.” His productions were dense and orchestral, accumulating layer upon layer of guitars, horns, keyboards, strings and percussion, often with multiple instruments playing the same note in unison. The songs he selected were dizzyingly romantic, typically written by the greatest of the Brill Building songwriters, and his classic recordings relied on the brilliant contributions of a set of musicians dubbed the Wrecking Crew – drummer Hal Blaine’s four-beat intro to the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” is one of the most distinctive kick offs to a song in rock & roll history.

Cigaratte (sic) taxes will hurt low-income residents News & Herald ( Klamath Falls WA) by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, that is one way to look at it.

Oregon couldn’t let a new year commence without the rollout of a new tax increase. Voters passed Measure 108 last year which increases cigarette and cigar taxes and establishes a new tax on vaping products beginning January 1, 2021.

The measure was approved by 65% of voters, likely because it was painted as an effort to reduce smoking and help low-income Oregonians by directing 90% of funds to the Oregon Health Plan. However, once in practice these new changes will have unintended consequences.

First, the taxes are regressive and will hurt low-income Oregonians. A recent study found that “low socioeconomic status is generally associated with a high prevalence of cigarette smoking.” Smoking prevalence was 41% among men with incomes below the poverty level versus 24% for those with incomes at or above it. It’s absurd that the state is taxing some of the very same people these medical services are supposed to help.

Second, only 10% of raised funds will go to tobacco-use prevention and cessation. It’s clear the purpose of these taxes is to fill a budget hole, not to help tobacco users quit their addiction. The state has created a perverse incentive for itself--the more people smoke, the more money the state brings in. Additionally, e-cigarettes and vaping products, both safer alternatives to cigarettes, will now be taxed. One study found that for every 10% increase in e-cigarette prices, sales dropped by 26%, leading to an increase in traditional cigarette use. If officials are truly committed to protecting public health by reducing cigarette use, they should allocate a higher percentage of the taxes’ revenue to smoking cessation and prevention programs.

Increase fine for monument removal --Dothan (Alabama) Eagle by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Roger is a pretty prolific letter writer.

The hateful attacks upon monuments to Gen. Robert E. Lee and other Confederate veterans continues under Alabama’s Memorial Preservation Act, which only fines the lawbreakers a one-time $25,000 fine for removing historic monuments without returning them.

Alabama’s Legislature should raise this fine to $25,000 per day until the monuments are returned. If violators don’t want to pay this fine, then they should not do the crime.

The “war over slavery” lie is the reason our Confederate monuments are assaulted and Americans are divided. Abraham Lincoln repeatedly declared his war was over taxes only and not slavery at all. When this truth is told, the assaults and division will end.

Lincoln declared: “I have no purpose to interfere with the institution of slavery. I have no lawful right to do so and I have no inclination to do so. The power confided to me will be used to collect the duties (tariffs) and imposts (import taxes); but beyond what may be necessary for this object, there will be no invasion, no using of force against the people anywhere.” (Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861, paragraphs 4 and 21).

The famous Black educator Booker T. Washington strongly supported our Confederate monuments, writing to Mamie Harrison, June 16, 1914: “I am going to take up very carefully the matter of the Confederate monument and see if I can find someone to give the money that is still needed. We all appreciated the visit of (Confederate) General Harrison to Tuskegee. We all realize more and more that men like him are the true friends of our race, and that any monument that will keep the fine character of such heroes before the public will prove helpful to both races in the South.” (Booker T. Washington Papers, Volume 13, Page 64)

Trump treated unfairly by media, far left -- Richmond Times-Dispatch by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

The media had a very different opinion when riots were taking place in our major cities in 2020 and nothing was done to protect the business owners whose businesses were destroyed and residents whose lives were harmed. No one called the National Guard then even though President Donald Trump wanted to call them for help. It was not pro-Trump supporters who caused violence at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday. It was a peaceful cry for justice because of the injustice shown by the compromises of our politicians. Dead people don't vote. There were many signed affidavits proving fraud, but the courts would not hear the evidence. I am angry at your newspaper for accusing pro-Trump supporters of insurrection. It was a pro-Trump supporter who was shot and killed at the Capitol building. The U.S. Capitol Police should have been prepared. They were not. Trump was unfairly treated for four years by the media and the far left. Half of America believes the 2020 election was stolen yet our politicians were too weak to do an audit.

36 counts of animal sex abuse for 79-year-old Metairie man shot by deputy by Nemacolin in news

My life is so very uninteresting.

A 79-year-old Metairie man who was shot after he pointed a gun at a Jefferson Parish deputy sheriff faces 36 counts of sexual abuse of an animal, according to his arrest report.

James Millet III, who was still in a hospital recovering from his injury Wednesday afternoon, has been booked on the abuse charges because of allegations that pornography in his possession involved sexual contact with animals, according to authorities. He was also booked with seven counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles, two counts of possession of distribution of pornography involving a victim younger than 13 and aggravated assault on an officer.

Millet's confrontation with deputies occurred as agents with the Louisiana attorney general's office sought to execute a search warrant at his Senac Drive home Tuesday morning as part of a child pornography investigation, the Sheriff's Office said. Though Millet’s wife stepped outside when authorities knocked on the door, she told deputies her husband was still inside, said Capt. Jason Rivarde, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies entered the house and walked into one of the bedrooms, they found Millet standing there with a gun. A deputy shot Millet once in the shoulder. He was arrested and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Maligned? Most people just pitied her. Still do.

To the Editor: Thank you to Melania Trump for being our most elegant, beautiful, intelligent and competent First Lady ever.

Under the most difficult of circumstances, Melania has represented America with grace and dignity throughout the world. Despite vile names being hurled at her, her son, and her husband, she worked tirelessly to accomplish success for her important programs and for the United States.

Never in my lifetime has a First Lady and her son been so maligned by myopic partisan forces…partisans whose hatred drove news stories, magazine covers, and twitter gutters for four years. Melania wisely chose to promote anti-bullying programs and “Be Best” platforms and ignored the vitriol.

Melania immigrated to America and became the American success story all immigrants strive to become. Working tirelessly, she overcame difficulties and established her own businesses. She learned the language, and in fact speaks five languages fluently. She lived the American dream.

America will miss her courage, dignity and perseverance. It will be a long time before America is so honored by a First Lady who embodies the American spirit with such courage, individualism, and honesty. And it will be an even longer time before young girls have such an elegant and intelligent role model in the White House.

What is a Trump supporter to do? I think back in history to Paul Cantrell of Athens, Tennessee, to Tom Pendergast of Missouri, to Richard Daily of Illinois and to Joseph Kennedy of Massachusetts. They had one thing in common — all Democrats who ran corrupt political machines.

Do I believe that a larger bunch of Democrats corrupted the recent election? You bet I do! As far as I am concerned, Joe Biden is an “illegitimate and corrupt” president. Political corruption has historically been the Democrats’ game plan, and I believe it was done in 2020. It is my firm belief that the only agenda of the Democrats is to destroy and control. The animus shown by Democratic leaders is appalling.

Now don’t you think there are millions of Trump supporters who know he has been the greatest president of their lifetime and are upset? So a few “wackos” invade the Capitol building. It was bad, but I feel it was caused by the Democrats and the vile treatment President Donald Trump has received at their hands over the past four years. No president should have to put up with that. He accomplished many good things in his presidency; hence the frustration people like me feel is real.

Did the president screw up now and then? Sure, but don’t we all — and haven’t past presidents screwed up? I do not see that President Trump’s words to the thousands to “peacefully, patriotically make your voices heard” was wrong. He never directed an invasion of the building. So a thousand or so eggheads get out of control. Investigate, arrest and prosecute

Certainly, that would be more than was done regarding Black Lives Matter, antifa, looters and rioters, but alas, those folks were Democrats. They were allowed to do what they did with little consequence.

DC police seek suspect who pinned officer against door with riot shield by Nemacolin in news

There is a Reward.

DC police released images Friday of a suspect seen in a dramatic video pinning a police officer against a door jamb during last week’s deadly attack on the US Capitol by a violent, pro-Trump mob.

The shocking video shows the suspect using a riot shield to pin Officer Daniel Hodges against the door as he screams in pain.

Earlier this week, Metro police identified the officer for the first time in response to a heartfelt letter tweeted at the department by a 10-year-old girl.

Officer Daniel Hodges spoke with Emma Joblonski via Zoom, NBC Washington reported, and the department tweeted that Hodges was “recovering and doing well.”

Illegal Alien Driver in Deadly 2019 Crash Sentenced to 50 Years in Prison by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

On Thursday, a judge sentenced a Reno man to 50 years in prison in connection to a fatal DUI case.

36-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez-Viurquiz plead guilty to one count each of DUI Resulting in Death, DUI Resulting in Substantial Bodily Harm, and Leaving the Scene of an Accident Resulting in Death or Personal Injury.

Rodriguez-Viurquiz was sentenced in January 2021, two years after the initial crime that happened on January 27th, 2019. The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) responded to a crash on I-580 just past the Peckham Lane overpass. Their investigation showed that 19-year-old Megan Dube and 20-year-old Korbin Preston were possibly checking their Jeep for mechanical issues when they pulled off the road on to the shoulder.

Shortly after, officials say a red Nissan Titan driven by Rodriguez-Viurquiz came from behind and hit the Jeep. Preston was standing in the shoulder behind the Jeep and died instantly.

The force of the crash threw Dube into into the travel lanes of I-580, where she was run over by another vehicle. Crews took Dube to Renown with life-threatening injuries, where she stayed for 44 days. She survived.

Rodriguez-Viurquiz fled the scene on foot, but was found quickly and arrested by Reno Police Department officers helping NHP.

Toxicology later showed RodriguezVuirquiz’ Blood Alcohol Content was approximately .310 at the time of the crash. Rodriguez-Viurquiz’ blood also contained methamphetamine and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Rodriguez-Viurquiz was determined to be from Mexico and undocumented by federal immigration officials and is expected to be deported at the end of his prison term.

In a release from the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office they wrote: "At the sentencing hearing, Deputy District Attorney Shannon M. Bryant argued that the agreed upon sentence was fair only in the legal sense, given the laws of Nevada and Rodriguez-Viurquiz’ acceptance of responsibility, but that none of the tragedy suffered in this case could ever be described as fair in any other sense."

Bryant credited Dube’s survival to the quick action and response of NHP, REMSA paramedics and other motorists who stopped to help.

Bay County Republican Party declares Biden “President-imposed," and illegitimate (Pensacola, Florida) by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Should Save us all Some Money Next Hurricane Season.

The Bay County Republican Party has declared President-elect Joe Biden as an imposed, illegitimate leader and have vowed that officials shouldn’t cooperate with his administration.

The party’s executive committee voted on Dec. 7 to support a resolution that among other things, declares that the party won’t recognize Biden’s administration as legitimate unless President Donald Trump conceded and acknowledged that the 2020 election was fair. The resolution comes after Trump and his legal team have made multiple failed attempts in court to overturn election results in various states.

“What the last few years have shown is that the future of the Republican Party can be found in the State of Florida,” Debbie Wood, chairman of the Bay County Republican Party, said in a written statement after the resolution vote. “Since the Panhandle has long been the conservative backbone of the state, we have an obligation not only to our community, but to our republic, to proudly defend the values that Made America Great. Tonight's (Dec. 7) vote makes clear that the Bay County Republican Party is prepared to continue to stand with President Trump and leaders that hold the conviction to fight for the American people and our Constitution.”

Though Trump and his campaign have repeatedly claimed there has been fraud, there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud. In fact, election officials from both political parties have publicly stated the election went well, though there have been minor issues that are typical in elections, including voting machines breaking and ballots that were miscast and lost.

Trump's election challenges have been repeatedly rejected by the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and even his own attorney general, William Barr, has said that no election fraud took place on a scale necessary to overturn the election.

The Bay County resolution, which has recently circulated on the internet, was submitted by Tho Bishop, vice-chairman of the party and leader of the Bay County Republican Roundtable.

The resolution states that the Bay County Republican Party “will not consider Joseph Biden to be the legitimate winner of the 2020 election without the concession of President Donald J. Trump and his acknowledgment of a fair 2020 election.”

This one takes a turn to the right.

The events of the past week in our nation have been truly troubling. This began with a pro-Trump rally Jan. 6 on the National Mall that morphed into a violent protest at the Capitol to interfere with Congress’ constitutionally mandated responsibility to count electoral votes, a pro forma event stipulated in Article II and the 12th Amendment which was created before the era of modern communications.

Equally troubling are the resulting threats from employers, corporations and big tech to ostracize and punish without due process anyone attending the event whether they were exercising their peaceful right to protest or engaging in violence.

This includes backlash against conservative politicians who objected to the electors based on perceived voting irregularities as allowed under the Electoral Count Act of 1887. The blacklisting by big tech of the conservative social media site Parlor in the name of public safety only contributes to what has become an overt suppression of free speech.

One of the most controversial pieces of legislation in our nation’s history was the Sedition Act of 1798 restricting freedom of speech and the press. The Federalists feared French infiltrators were trying to undermine the John Adams Administration and labeled it sedition to speak out against the president, Congress, or their policies.

Fortunately, this dangerous assault on the First Amendment was rescinded by the Jefferson Administration in 1802. While what happened at the Capitol is reprehensible and those who engaged in violence need to be held accountable to the full extent of the law, there is a process that must be followed to preserve our rights as American citizens.

America is on perilous ground when we are willing to cede our fundamental rights of free speech and due process to big tech, corporations and employers who now consider themselves the self-appointed arbitrators of truth.

As Benjamin Franklin admonished, “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

A high-stakes six-month battle over who should be counted for representation in Congress ended quietly in a judge’s chamber Friday night when the Trump administration agreed not to release any population numbers from the 2020 Census for congressional apportionment or redistricting before the president leaves office.

Judge Lucy H. Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California approved the agreement, which also stipulates a three-week pause in a lawsuit challenging the government’s timeline for completing and processing the decennial count. The stay will allow the Biden administration to assess its position in the case.

The case revolves around the timing of the census. Because of delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Census Bureau had said in April that it needed four additional months to complete the count.

But in August, days after Trump announced he would seek to exclude undocumented immigrants from being counted for apportionment, the government abandoned that plan. Instead, it said it planned to deliver numbers for apportionment by the statutory deadline of Dec. 31, 2020, and cut the usual data processing time in half.

The suit was brought by the National Urban League and a group of counties, cities, advocacy groups and individuals who said a truncated schedule would irreparably harm communities that might be undercounted.

Since then, the administration has pushed to get data to the president before he leaves office, culminating this week in reports from bureau whistleblowers that political appointees were pressuring them to release data by Friday, regardless of its accuracy.

Those reports prompted calls from civil rights groups and Democratic lawmakers for bureau director Steven Dillingham to resign.

One of them, Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, said in a statement Friday that she had lost her faith in his ability to lead the bureau.

“Rather than ensure an accurate count, Dr. Dillingham appears to have acceded repeatedly to the Trump Administration’s brazen efforts to politicize the Census,” she said. “He has failed to be open and transparent with Congress, and recent events indicate he has lost the confidence of Census Bureau staff. If he does not resign, I urge President-elect Biden to remove Dr. Dillingham after taking office on January 20.”

Video: Comey says there should be an investigation into law enforcement’s failure to protect the Capitol (The Washington Post)

Play Video Comey says there should be an investigation into law enforcement’s failure to protect the Capitol Click to expand Three federal courts had blocked Trump’s memorandum on excluding undocumented immigrants from apportionment, calling it illegal or unconstitutional or both. The Supreme Court last month dismissed the case, saying it was premature to rule before Trump had had a chance to act on it.

Excluding undocumented immigrants from representation would have likely shifted some House seats away from immigrant-heavy states and given them to states with higher percentages of white residents. It was never clear how the government planned to count the number of undocumented immigrants by state to subtract them from the total population counts, as no such tally exists.

In a hearing before Koh on Friday, Justice Department lawyer Brad Rosenberg explained the reasoning behind the government’s request for the stay.

“There is going to be a change of administration in just a few days,” he said. “At this point, regardless of what may or may not have transpired, the government thinks that it is appropriate to transition this matter to the next administration.”

A stay, he said, “would most efficiently allow for that transition to take place and for the new administration to evaluate operations within the Census Bureau and the Department of Commerce, and for the Department of Justice to evaluate this litigation as well.”

The agreement also bars the government from releasing any citizenship data for apportionment or redistricting, information Trump requested in 2019 after the Supreme Court blocked his administration’s attempt to add a citizenship question to the census.

The agreement does not set a final deadline for the reporting of apportionment or redistricting numbers. If the government finalizes any data after Jan. 20 but before the end of the stay, it agreed to give plaintiffs seven days’ notice before releasing it publicly.

Thomas Wolf, senior counsel and Spitzer Fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law, which is among those representing the plaintiffs, hailed the agreement.

“After several years of chaos that have threatened the accuracy and integrity of the count, the Trump administration has committed to standing down on reporting 2020 Census numbers — including citizenship numbers — in a significant victory for our lawsuit challenging the rush of the count,” he said.

“The Bureau will have more time to work on the numbers before they are released, instead of facing an artificial deadline of completing the task before President Trump leaves office. This increases the likelihood of a full, fair, and accurate count.”

“Stop the Steal” organizer Ali Alexander says three Republican lawmakers helped him put together the protest in Washington, D.C., that turned into a Capitol riot.

The Washington Post reports Alexander, a right-wing activist that has repeated President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread election fraud, said in a since-deleted video on Periscope that Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and Paul A. Gosar of Arizona helped organize the Jan. 6 event during Congress’ vote to certify the Electoral College votes in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.

“We four schemed up of putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting,” Alexander said, adding that they planned to “change the hearts and the minds of Republicans who were in that body, hearing our loud roar from outside.”

The roar turned into a riot as pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building, leaving five people dead and forcing members of Congress to take refuge during the chaos.

Brooks denied knowing Alexander in a statement to the Washington Post, and refused to accept responsibility. Biggs and Gosar did not comment, but social media evidence and videos online suggest all three have links to Alexander: Gosar called Alexander a “true patriot” on Twitter and Trump retweeted a video by Alexander on Dec. 26 that included a message from Biggs referencing Brooks.

Health Secretary Alex Azar resigning on Jan. 20 by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

America has someone in charge of health! Who knew?

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is resigning on Jan 20, the same day President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.

In his resignation letter dated Jan. 12, Azar took a parting shot at President Donald Trump, mentioning the riot at the U.S. Capitol last week, where a violent mob of Trump’s supporters breached the building, injuring dozens of police officers and causing five deaths.

Azar wrote that “the actions and rhetoric following the election, especially during the past week, threaten to tarnish” the legacies of this administration. “The attacks on the Capitol were an assault on our democracy and on the tradition of peaceful transitions of power that the United States first brought to the world.”

Azar’s resignation came after U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and several other Trump administration officials resigned after the president was accused of inciting the violence by directing protesters to head to the U.S. Capitol where lawmakers were finalizing Biden’s win. The mob descended on the Capitol building Wednesday shortly after proceedings began to count the Electoral College votes and confirm Biden’s election.

“With the pandemic raging, the continued need to deliver vaccines and therapeutics to the American people, and the imperative of ensuring a smooth transition to the Biden Administration, I have determined that it is in the best interest of the people we serve to remain as Secretary until the end of the term,” Azar said in his letter addressed to Trump.

“I Implore you to continue to condemn unequivocally any form of violence, to demand that no one attempt to disrupt the inaugural activities in Washington or elsewhere and to continue to support unreservedly the peaceful and orderly transition of power on January 20, 2021.”

In a tweet last week, Azar condemned the riot, saying he was “disgusted.”

“Physical violence and the desecration of this hallowed symbol of our democracy must end. People must immediately and peacefully disperse,” he said on Twitter.

Anything to escape the law.

The National Rifle Association on Friday filed for bankruptcy protection as part of a restructuring plan aimed at moving the influential gun rights group to Texas.

The filing comes six months after New York state’s attorney general filed a lawsuit seeking to dissolve the NRA for allegedly misappropriating funds.

The advocacy group said that it would restructure as a Texas nonprofit to exit from what it described as “a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York,” where it is currently registered

The NRA, which said it was not financially broke, filed for protection under Chapter 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Dallas.

In its filing, the group said it has assets of between $100 million and $500 million, and liabilities in the same dollar range.

The NRA’s largest unsecured creditor was its former ad agency Ackerman McQueen, which is owed $1.27 million, according to the filing. The gun group and the ad company have filed contentious lawsuits against one another.

“The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas,” wrote NRA CEO and executive vice president Wayne LaPierre in a statement Friday announing the filing.

He added that “no major changes are expected to the NRA’s operations or workforce.”
