Why we don’t do Facebook

Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella,  Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella, Eric Ciaramella, . . .

It is widely circulated information that the name of the so-called whistleblower ( we prefer the term traducer, driveler, muckraker) regarding a Trump phone call to the Ukrainian president is one Eric Ciaramella a CIA employee, deep state denizen, highly political operative, protege of lying former CIA Director John Brennan —  aka a cia pet.

His name has been reported extensively and authoritatively as a matter of important journalistic work. By the way there is nothing in a “whistleblower” statute that says “whistleblowers” are entitled to have their anonymity protected, that they can make anonymous founded or unfounded accusations (the information in question about Trump’s phone call was not first hand information to Ciaramella). It would be an outrage to anyone accused on the basis of first or second-hand claims not to be able to face their accuser.

Below is an article regarding censorship  by the social media force Facebook of content that names Eric Ciaramella as the “whistleblower.” For that and other likely sins against liberal Facebook we would be in Facebook jail on a regular basis, de-platformed with regularity. Facebook is an anti-humor anti-ridicule-of-liberals platform.

To be sure as an internet platform Facebook has certain conveniences, but also limitations. Certain of its features are merely spins on other available purposed internet platforms. As a WordPress subscriber we have had no limitations on controversial content per se attributable to WordPress. Certainly we do not entertain everything but some of our content would not likely pass Facebook’s liberal oriented filters. Twitter we find largely irritating.  Both claim to be platforms and the immunities implied by that yet they censor content including political content.  As corporations they should then be subject to political advocacy statutes.

Facebook has distribution features that can enhance outreach which makes it appealing to many news and commentary outlets across the political spectrum.  From what we have observed of Facebook templates however, we prefer the concept of an entire post being intact (other than links) rather than requiring people to bounce about within the format.  We think our navigation is more straightforward and we do not like their censorship.   Our readers are anonymous, not tracked as a result of visiting our site, and no individual data is kept.

Facebook bars content claiming to name Trump impeachment whistleblower

Facebook bars content claiming to name Trump impeachment whistleblowerNovember 8, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc. is taking down any content that claims to name the anonymous whistleblower who ignited an impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Donald Trump, the social network said on Friday.

The company’s statement follows right-wing Breitbart News’ publication of an article that said it identified the whistleblower.

Breitbart, which former Trump adviser Steve Bannon once headed, reported that Facebook users attempting to view the article received a message saying the content was not available, and administrators of its Facebook page began receiving notifications on Wednesday evening that its page is “at risk of being unpublished.”

“Any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name violates our coordinating harm policy, which prohibits content ‘outing of witness, informant, or activist,’” the company said in a statement, initially provided in response to Breitbart.

“We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in debate.”

The whistleblower, a U.S. intelligence official who complained about Trump’s July 25 telephone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has in recent days become a target of attacks by Trump, his allies in Congress and the conservative media, who have pushed for the person to be publicly identified.

Breitbart is one of the top-performing publishers on Facebook and was recently designated as an official Facebook News partner. Facebook said in response to criticism of that decision that Breitbart is an unpaid partner, unlike some outlets in the section.

Chart of Democrats approach to transparency and fair-play

This chart accurately describes the House Democrats Star Chamber proceedings aimed against Trump.  The Democrats have to proceed this way because Trump has done nothing wrong regarding Ukraine, indeed he has proceeded with integrity.  There has been neither “quid-pro-quo” or whatever the Democrats latest invented offense.

Below the chart are some links to substantiate its content. Also included is a video content from Republican’s revealing Democrat unfairness, fraudulence, subterfuge, deception.

Democrats on a mission to run out of other people’s money

Democrats unveil proposal for ‘millionaires surtax’ 

——————-

“Crazy Horse” (Liz “Ah think ah’ll git me a beer” Warren) will be so angry!

Two congressional Democrat nitwits have gone and tipped her hand. Crazy Horse is famous for having ‘a plan’ for everything and Native Americans’ most famous fake had a funding scheme all worked out.

She promised to tax the sh*t out of ‘just the multi-Billionaires’ (with a B) … why who could be against that?!  Only after she became America’s 46th (and last elected ) president, would ‘CH’ implement “phase II”:

In order to ‘pay’ for all the free stuff she promised her benighted voters, she would then call on her socialist Democratic congress to add a “surtax on Millionaires” (with an M), in addition to their current tax liability!

President Warren would explain to America that “these people (Millionaires) didn’t EARN that much money”, and it’s time for them to ‘give back’ to their 90% of America who have much less than they.

“And beside, she will assure, it won’t unfairly treat those millionaires. Why my ‘one-time’ surtax will ‘only’ be 3% of their net worth.

For example that typical millionaire, who might even live in your neighborhood, would only have to give $30,000 more than the taxes they’ll pay next year! (A “super-rich” person worth $3 million would only have to pay $90,000 more). And that’s only for ‘one year’.)

“Think about it.”  She will say. “They’ll still have $970,000 ! How much will you have? And think how much more ‘free stuff’ I can provide to all Americans!” (A ‘super rich’ family would still have $910,000 !)

How’s that for a plan?

Anybody care to guess what ‘Mao Tse’ Warren has in mind for “phase III” of her “plan”?

Democrats unveil proposal for ‘millionaires surtax’

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Thursday rolled out a proposal for a “millionaires surtax,” amid a growing interest from Democrats in increasing taxes on the wealthy.

“This is a bill designed to address two major problems of public policy: the lack of revenue, and inequality,” Beyer said on a call with reporters. “It’s a laser-focused solution that requires those who benefited the most from the economy to contribute in a way they simply haven’t been asked to before.”

The lawmakers’ bill, which is being co-sponsored by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), would create a 10 percentage point surtax on all income above $2 million for married couples and $1 million for single tax filers.

The surtax would result in the top tax rate on income from wages and salaries increasing from 37 percent to 47 percent, plus a 3.8 percent Medicare surtax. It would result in the top rate on capital gains increasing from 20 percent to 30 percent, plus a 3.8 percent net investment tax.

The Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, has estimated that such a surtax would raise nearly $635 billion over 10 years.
“This is revenue generated that we can then invest in helping other Americans succeed,” Van Hollen said.

The release of Beyer and Van Hollen’s proposal comes as Democratic presidential candidates and lawmakers have been offering a host of proposal to tax the rich more in order to combat inequality and raise revenue to pay for spending priorities. Of note, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who are both running for president, have proposed wealth taxes on multimillionaires and billionaires.

Van Hollen said his proposal isn’t “in conflict” with other tax-the-rich proposals, and that the surtax proposal “will become part of that broader debate.”

Beyer said there has been a debate about whether a wealth tax would be constitutional, but there shouldn’t be any constitutional issues with their surtax. He also said that the surtax proposal was simpler than a wealth tax.

The “millionaires surtax” proposal is backed by progressive tax groups such as the Patriotic Millionaires and Americans for Tax Fairness. Supporters of the proposal have released a calculator that allows people to see what the revenue raised by the surtax could fully or partially fund.

Supporters of the proposal also released polling data from Hart Research that found that 73 percent of voters would support a Democratic proposal creating such a surtax — including a majority of Republicans and of those who voted for President Trump.

Local election results and implications – part 1

Alderman at-Large Gripp more popular than Mayor-elect Matson

The results from the mayor race in Davenport indicates that people did not like the choices on the ballot.

How so you ask?

Both the mayoral and the alderman-at-large positions are city wide elections. They are non-partisan in that party affiliation does not appear on the ballot and primaries are not determined by each party supplying a candidate.  However unlike the mayoral contest the alderman-at-large position was unopposed  – meaning there were only two candidates on the ballot for two positions.  Voters were voting for two to fill those two positions. Voters were not in a position to eliminate one.  Indeed other than to write in someone there was not a definitive reason to even vote the election as both were otherwise automatic winners.

We note that the two individuals for the alderman-at-large position combined received 15,518 votes. Kyle Gripp a registered Republican received the most with 8,702 of the votes cast. The other person JJ Condon a registered Democrat received 6,816 votes.

For the Davenport mayoral election, with two on ballot but with the option to vote for only one, there was a contest and people needed to vote to determine the winner. But there were only 12,070 combined votes cast.  The winner Mike Matson, a registered Democrat  received 7199 votes with Rawson coming in at 4871.

So the uncontested unadvertised alderman-at-large race received almost 29% MORE votes than the mayoral contest. It stands to reason people did not like the choices for mayor. Alderman-at-large Gripp received about 1500 more votes than Matson. True, in the Alderman-at-large vote you could vote for two without penalty, but you did not have to, and the total vote comparison is telling. It would appear Alderman-at-large Gripp is the most popular city-wide candidate in Davenport.

We will believe it when we see it

It is easy to doubt whether there . . .

  • Is an IG report
  • Is a William Barr!
  • Is a Republican Judiciary/Intelligence Committee

We have been teased so much by the conservative media and analysis of every little tea leaf and emanation to the effect that  THE BIG ONE IS ON THE WAY  so forgive us if we are of the attitude that we will believe it when we see it.

More and more it seems likely that the DOJ, FBI, and National Security apparatus are all still run by Obama holdovers wearing funny masks and suits that are cut from White House drapes fabric

diGenova and Toensing on Upcoming IG Report: “it’s going to be worse than you can imagine”…

Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing appeared on Fox News to discuss issues surrounding the ongoing investigations of Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Durham. Mr. diGenova and Ms. Toensing bring the tick-tock hammer to the audience.

According to Ms. Toensing the upcoming IG report is going to be “very bad for people in the Obama administration.” Toensing went on to say, according to her sources, “it’s going to be worse than you can imagine.”

Mr. diGenova went on to say: “it’s going to be devastating” … “it’s going to ruin careers” etc. Mr diGenova has a great deal of confidence in AG Barr, Horowitz and Durham.

The “glow” after the vote

  • Useful perspective for all of us on politics and politicians

Via reader “Fast Eddie” in Michigan

HEAVEN OR HELL ?

While walking down the street a senator was tragically hit by a car and died.

His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. “Welcome to Heaven”, says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem. Just let me in,” says the senator.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really? I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven,” says the senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.” And with that he goes down, down to Hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a golf course. In the distance a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hands and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They played a friendly round of golf and then dined on lobster, caviar, Cebu lechon and the finest champagne. Also present is the devil who really is a very friendly guy and who is having a good time and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.

“Now it’s time to visit Heaven.” So, 24 hours passed with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp, Cebu guitar and singing. They have a good time and before he realizes it the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. “Well then you’ve spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now choose your eternity.

“The senator reflects for a minute before he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in Hell.” So he goes back down to Hell.

The elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the senator. “The other day I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse and we ate lobster, caviar, lechon, drank champagne and we danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says, “Yesterday we were campaigning. Today you voted”.

Breaking: Revelations about Davenport School Board from QC Times

This QC Times article reports on the transcripts of  Davenport School Board recorded minutes regarding the sale of Lincoln School.  Incumbent candidates seeking reelection Daniel Gosa and Linda Hayes (among others) are exposed for their biases and failures to protect taxpayer interests.

Lincoln School sale: Two Davenport School Board members said they might have conflicts of interest, but proceeded anyway   (excerpt)

According to the audio, Hayes’ employment was also noted as a potential problem at the last meeting before the district approved the offer from her employer.

On June 3 — more than a year after Hayes she first mentioned the conflict — TJ Schneckloth, then–interim superintendent, told Johanson he should “probably ask about Linda” when he talked to the district’s legal counsel.

“I think it’s an issue of not voting,” Johanson said, without mentioning Hayes’ participation in each of the six closed meetings where her employer was discussed.

Hayes indicated she would not vote, and she didn’t. But her input was used to help build the board’s consensus; she questioned Maloney as to why Third Baptist’s informal offer hadn’t been brought to the board; she participated in a discussion of the church’s financial wherewithal to take on the project; she publicly endorsed Together’s plan for the property before the vote; and she made the motion to proceed with the vote on the sale.

Read entire article for more depth.

V’PAC note: Hayes fellow Democrat Gosa voted outright for the cheap sale.  Both are up for election Tuesday.

V’PAC supports candidates Gene Guy, Mark Holloway and Kent Paustian.

General Election Scott County – here are the registered Republicans – vote for them

  • Voting time and locations available at Scott County Auditor website
  • Candidate contact information is available on the SC Auditor website
  • Below are municipal and school board races and candidates with party registration indicated — along with our voting recommendations
  • Another integrity issue resurfaces regarding mayor candidate Matson
  • Davenport School Board race of concern

As we have advocated for some time,  because of the dearth of information from candidates in this officially  “non-partisan”  election, and regrettably in some races the dearth of candidates, all we have to go on is party affiliation.  Accordingly that is our voting recommendation to you — vote Republican and consider writing in one from the district when there is not one on the ballot.  See our additional explanation here.

We have listed the candidates on the ballot with party affiliation next to their name and indicated whether or not they have opposition on the ballot (more candidates than positions).   When there is an insufficient number of Republicans running for the open positions the choice is to “bullet vote” for only the Republicans or vote for them and write in a Republican for the additional position(s) to be filled. In general we do not recommend bullet voting for only one Republican this election when others are on the ballot and positions need to be filled.

Davenport Mayor

We will be writing in Dean Weber for Davenport Mayor as both candidates appearing on the ballot  — Rita Rawson and Mike Matson — are Democrats. For reasons we have articulated being a Democrat is a disqualifying matter for this organization.

For those insistent on picking between the ballot appearing candidates even if they are Democrats — Rawson does not seem to have Matson’s integrity problems.  Matson is the recipient of pointed opposition by both Tom Hart a former Democrat Mayor and Democrat County Chairman  AND  former Mayor and West Point graduate Ed Winborn.– Both questioned Matson’s integrity as an alderman in the matter referred to in this QCTimes article.

When you are a Democrat as Matson is and you have a former Democrat county chair call you out on an integrity issue, that is something to take note of.  Former Mayor Winborn who was a registered Republican and West Point graduate with a Distinguished Flying Cross to his name opposes Matson for related reasons. Winborn entering into the fray is of significance because Matson has made much of his military experience as if that makes he and his politics unquestionable, and that somehow he is immune from political chicanery.

As we have pointed out previously Matson has another integrity issue.

Democrat Mike Matson, as leader of the Davenport American Legion Post put the kibosh to a request through channels to RENT the facility for a local rally in support of President Trump in the Spring of 2017 as being too political for the venue. Never mind that political candidates of both parties have rented the facility. But Matson then used Legion facilities (we presume by renting them) to further his own candidacy for the Democrat nomination for Iowa Governor (alderman to governor shows the megalomania of the guy). It was not merely partisan it was dishonorable treatment of Republican veterans and Legion members. It also says a lot about what Matson thinks about Trump voters in this area.

Comparing Rawson and  Matson,  if we were (we are not) inclined to vote for any Democrat in this local “non-partisan” election we would hold our nose and vote for Rawson, not that her policies are any more what Davenport needs than Matson’s, but why reward a demonstrated lack of integrity in Matson.

DAVENPORT SCHOOL BOARD   see update here as result of breaking information from QC Times –

There are fourteen candidates running for the four open seats. The amount of interest is no doubt due to what some have referred to as malfeasance by a majority of the current Board in voting to practically give away the Lincoln School property for $30,000 in spite of having received purchase bids far exceeding the approved bid.  The specter of conflicts of interest has been raised as well.  QCTimes articles reported on the controversy and are available  herehere,   here,    here ,   here,   and  here.

Not all current board members are up for reelection as the terms are staggered however two of the individuals who sat on the board at the time of the give-away sale in question are. One voted in support of the sale and that member is Daniel Gosa a registered Democrat. The other is Linda Hayes, another Democrat and current Vice President of the Board who recused herself on the sale vote as she is a member of the church that was practically given the property.  In our view that does not exonerate her without a record of opposition short of the vote.

Two current Board members decided not to seek reelection. One voted with the majority to sell the property for so little. To our dismay he was a registered Republican. We have never maintained voting Republican always gives perfect results but we would bet a Democrat in his place would have predictably voted the same. The other retiring candidate voted against the give-away sale.

The Davenport Teachers Union has endorsed both incumbents running along with candidates Jenner Kealey a registered Democrat, and Karen Kline-Jerome who is registered no-party. A teachers union endorsement in this area is generally another disqualifying mark in our judgement.

There are three registered Republicans running to fill the four open seats. They are Gene Guy,  Kent Paustian and Mark Holloway.  We strongly encourage district residents to show up and vote for those individuals and definitely not vote for the incumbents and the two other teacher union endorsed candidates identified above.

BETTENDORF SCHOOL BOARD

There are six people running for four open positions. Of the six there are three registered Republicans.  They are Rebecca Eastman – Paul Castro and Michael Pyevich. The latter two are also incumbents.

NORTH SCOTT SCHOOL BOARD

There are six people running for four open positions. Of the six there are FIVE registered Republicans running.  They are:  Nick Hansel  –  Brett Van Deventer  – Joni Dittmer  – John Maxwell  –  Glen Keppy.  That latter three are also incumbents.

PLEASANT VALLEY SCHOOL DISTRICTS (vote for one in the district of your residence)
