Queens for the day

Sorry, meant memes for the day.  Thanks to TN.

It’s becoming quite the trend at a number of college games

 

 

Pudding time Joe

The protest last weekend that Queen Nancy was so worried about was attended more by media, “security” and “undercover” feds.

Leftist Organ “Fact Checkers” are not devoted to truth . . .

. . . only blindered leftist “analysis”

REMEMBER WHEN THE “NEWS” MEDIA KEPT TRACK OF THE PRESIDENT’S LIES?

The Washington Post says that President Trump told “30,573 untruths” during his 4-year term.

Apparently The Washington Post has either stopped its tracking of presidential ‘untruths’…or, it believes that Biden has not told an “untruth’ even once during his first 8 months of his presidency.

Or maybe, The Washington Post DOESN”T CARE how many lies President Biden’s administration tells!

The Fact Checker counted a total of 30,573 false or misleading claims made by President Trump during his White House tenure. Here’s what we learned. (Adriana Usero/The Washington Post)——-From The Washington Post:

January 24, 2021 at 3:00 a.m. EST
When The Washington Post Fact Checker team first started cataloguing President Donald Trump’s false or misleading claims, we recorded 492 suspect claims in the first 100 days of his presidency. On Nov. 2 alone, the day before the 2020 vote, Trump made 503 false or misleading claims as he barnstormed across the country in a desperate effort to win reelection.
This astonishing jump in falsehoods is the story of Trump’s tumultuous reign. By the end of his term, Trump had accumulated 30,573 untruths during his presidency — averaging about 21 erroneous claims a day.
What is especially striking is how the tsunami of untruths kept rising the longer he served as president and became increasingly unmoored from the truth.
Trump averaged about six claims a day in his first year as president, 16 claims day in his second year, 22 claims day in this third year — and 39 claims a day in his final year. Put another way, it took him 27 months to reach 10,000 claims and an additional 14 months to reach 20,000. He then exceeded the 30,000 mark less than five months later.

Biden reign  has been one big lie after another  . . . “no vaccine mandates” . . .  “return to normalcy”  “competency” . . .  better foreign relations  . . . his election.

O”Biden’s General: Milley’s Russian and China collusion

  • Remember how a year ago an American general meeting with a Russian was somehow a great scandal

MORE TROUBLE FOR MILLEY? ON HEELS OF CHINA CALL,

General Flynn would’ve gone to prison if Trump had not pardoned him… for a much more innocent contact with the Russian ambassador…and, it was part of Flynn’s job as National Security advisor

From BizpacReview article:

In a meet-up in Helsinki, Finland, today, U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, engaged in what’s being characterized as a confidential, six-hour discussion with his military Russian counterpart.

“It was a productive meeting. When military leaders of great powers communicate, the world is a safer place,” Gen. Milley reportedly remarked after the session.

An prolocutor for critical race theory fan Milley, the latter who has admitted to being an avid reader of the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Mao Zedong, implied that there is nothing to see here.

The article above refers to Milley’s contact with Chinese military leadership and also quotes General Milley as saying in 2015 (bold our emphasis)  that: “China is not an enemy” and that Russia is America’s only true threat”  (ed. note: no doubt due to the Russian flu they sent world-wide).

All of which must have inspired the rumor we heard:

The Chairman was just trying to assure Xi Jin Ping that, even though Trump didn’t like Chinese, Milley himself had no “yellow rage” and he would let China know if US was planning an attack…to give them time to launch a “pre-emptive” strike.

“It’s what friends do”, Milley explained.

“Amen !”, said the devout Joe Biden                                  dlh

From Uk’s Daily Mail:

Biden says he has ‘great confidence’ in Joint Chiefs chairman Milley despite him admitting he DID call China and lectured staff on nukes protocol: Trump’s defense secretary says he ‘did not’ authorize calls and general should resign

  • President Joe Biden said he has ‘great confidence’ in General Mark Milley after he admitted to holding calls with his Chinese counterpart working under Trump
  • Press Secretary Jen Psaki called Milley a ‘patriot’ when defending him
  • She said Biden has ‘complete confidence’ in Milley’s ‘fidelity to our Constitution’
  • Former Acting Pentagon chief said he ‘would never’ authorize the ‘secret’ calls
  • General Mark Milley confirmed the phone calls took place in a Wednesday statement via his spokesman Colonel Dave Butler
  • A new book claims Milley phoned his Chinese counterpart to give reassurances two days after the January 6 Capitol riot
  • Trump accused him of treason and Republicans are demanding he resign
  • The book’s revelations triggered a wave of concern that Milley had violated the chain of command and endangered national security
  • Milley was concerned Trump may take rogue action to stay in office
  • All of the above was detailed in ‘Peril’, an upcoming book about the 2020 presidential election by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa

Hope springs eternal, or at least for the mid-terms

  • Early Iowa Poll, all manner of things can change prior to mid-terms 
  • Cheaters have proven they can prosper in the short term and Democrats are quite good at it
  • However they can’t cheat eternal damnation

CNN Warns Latest Polling Should ‘Terrify’ Democrats Ahead of Midterms

CNN Warns Latest Polling Should ‘Terrify’ Democrats Ahead of Midterms
CV NEWS FEED // CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an essay warning that huge numbers of American voters are turning against President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

“It’s the rare poll that makes an entire party sit up and take notice. The new Iowa poll is one of those polls,” wrote Cillizza:

Just 31% of Iowans approved of how Joe Biden is handling his duties as president while a whopping 62% disapprove. …Biden’s approval on pulling American troops out of Afghanistan stands at a meager 22%. Approval for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is now just 36% among Iowans.

Cillizza described the new poll numbers as “a blaring red alarm for not just Biden but especially down-ballot Democrats — in Iowa and elsewhere — who will be running in the 2022 midterms.”

“If Biden’s numbers are anywhere close to this bad in other swing states — and districts — Democrats’ hopes of holding onto their very narrow three-seat House majority are somewhere close to nonexistent,” Cillizza explained, citing a 2018 Gallup essay which stated:

In Gallup’s polling history, presidents with job approval ratings below 50% have seen their party lose 37 House seats, on average, in midterm elections. That compares with an average loss of 14 seats when presidents had approval ratings above 50%.

While Cillizza may hold out some hope for the “other swing states” he mentioned, one such state brought bad news for Biden this week as well.

The latest poll in Michigan found that Biden “has seen his approval ratings fall more drastically” than even the increasingly-unpopular Gov. Gretchen Whittmer, a fellow Democrat. “About 39% of voters approved of [Biden’s] performance and 53% disapproved” according to the new Glengariff Group poll, Detroit News reported.

Cillizza concluded by reiterating that “if the President’s numbers in Iowa are anything close to where they are today” when the midterms come around, “it is an absolute disaster for Democrats” and “would presage the near-certain loss of a large number of House seats (and their majority) come next November.”

Chuck Grassley has helped make Joe Manchin the man of the hour

  • Chuck Grassley has disappointed, to say the least
  • The big question now is which one is more dependable and to which Party, Grassley or Manchin (see links)

Chuck has done his work, easily rolling over (along with the rest of the Iowa delegation) for an election with more corruption than you can shake a stick at for the weakest constitutional and historic analysis, heralding in the most corrupt and anti-constitutional administration in history.  Grassley compounded that by repeating calumnies about January 6th, which in reality was an overwhelmingly peaceful protest with what any balanced interpreter of American history would attest was a relative kerfuffle but for the killing of an unarmed diminutive woman by a policeman.  The continued persecution of any overwrought participants is a crime in itself, and appears to be an attempt at coverup of revelations of the presence of not only leftist agitators but even law enforcement provocateurs.  

And Chuck Grassley is there to lecture and save us from it all, except not

Having helped pass the largely boondoggle laden leftist precursor 1.5 trillion dollar “infrastructure” bill against the better judgment of the great majority of his betters in the Republican Senate caucus who actually understood what the Democrats were up to because the Democrats told everyone — pass this to pave the way for the communist revolution encompassed in the 3.5 trillion dollar reconciliation package that only needs 50 votes in the Senate — Chuck exclaimed “regular order” as if voting AGAINST something also was consistent with regular order.

But hey, wave some bridge improvements (not repair, improvements), grease the away for more green energy (shortsightedly for his way of thinking to the detriment of Queen Ethanol) some other executive lobbying group support (the usual suspects in pursuit of  concentrated gain for diffuse pain to others in the form of taxes, inflation and forgone better spending) and Chuck is on board helping to steer.  Of course the real bricks, steal, concrete and asphalt improvements would come anyway with an authentic infrastructure bill but Chuck chose to get all righteous defending “regular order” among swamp dwellers with all the integrity of alligators.   Give it upChuck.

Chuck Grassley (along with the rest of the Iowa delegation) having decided that the Constitution mandates validation of corrupted elections without delay, Grassley greased the way for the communist manifesto reconciliation bill perhaps because he thought all his “regular order” nostrums would  not hazard the Republic. The ship mates “colleagues”  this former yeoman helmsman in the Senate is subjecting the country to are not merely drunken sailors, as the saying goes, with reference to any application to Democrats, an insult to drunken sailors everywhere.  They are soberly intent on upending this country. They mean business.  They will attempt to plow through the icebergs and Chuck is content to stand aside on the steering deck mumbling “regular order”.

Maybe there will be some one-day heroes in this, perhaps better said to be useful idiots for actual good,  at least as regards the 3.5 trillion dollar reconciliation bill, at least to mitigate it.  Chuck Grassley cannot be construed to being one of them having set the stage for the opportunity for a speedy cataclysm. One or two Democrats might delay the process long enough for the 2022 midterms.  Perhaps it is not a useless prayer to pray for Joe Machin and Kyrsten Sinema to actually do the right thing, maybe even for the right reasons.    R Mall

Astounding duplicity: Milley lionized, Flynn indicted

Regarding the Biden Bovine Administration

I wonder why it has not been prominently discussed that there is an almost eerie comparison between what Milley is being defended vigorously for by the entire Biden administration and Democrat  party and what General Flynn was indicted.

If Milley was “justified in talking as he allegedly did to his CCP counterpart then Flynn’s “contact’ with the Russian ambassador was certainly not “improper”.

I wonder why this hasn’t been widely discussed by the Trump people and Republicans in general.      dlh

How far our military leadership has fallen

  • Trump did not realize the extent, over trusted,  or simply ran out of time to make changes to head-off the woke culture infecting the military
  • Milley should be brought up on charges for what he did, now revealed in the Woodward book

The following was forwarded by reader HP, a retired brigade/ task-force level Special Forces combat veteran officer.  We have not verified the author’s credentials but the points made are unassailable.

OPEN LETTER TO
GENERAL MARK MILLEY
by: Quentin L. Smith
September 9, 2021

General Milley:
During testimony before the Congress of the United States you stated:
“I want to understand white rage, and I’m white…What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America?…I want to find that out.”

Well, General, I am a 76-year-old white man, a former officer in the United States Army (1967-70), and a retired Special Agent of the FBI with nearly 29 years of service (1971-1999). I attended Trump’s rally on January 6th, and I think I may be able to help you understand the reasons for “white rage.”

You impugn the motives of hundreds of thousands of patriotic citizens: whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians, male, female, young and old. They weren’t trying to overturn the Constitution! They wanted nothing more than to make their voices heard and, if possible, delay the certification of an election they believed, with probable cause, was stolen. You and the media repeatedly claim Trump’s allegations of a “stolen election” are false. Neither you, I, nor anyone else know whether this is true or not because the evidence (hundreds of witness affidavits signed under penalty of perjury, pristine mail-in ballots, xeroxed ballots, the synchronized shutdown of ballot counting in 5 swing states until observers were removed from the election headquarters, etc.) has never been tested in court or disclosed to the people.

Apparently, my presence in Washington, DC on January 6th qualifies me, in your estimation, as one of those “outraged white people” you want to understand. Since you appear to be somewhat intellectually challenged, let me give you just 13 easy to understand reasons for my “white rage” as you like to call it.

1. I’m outraged that a duly elected President, the most effective President in my lifetime, was harassed, falsely accused of being a Russian agent, undermined, and lied about by “Deep State” career officials like yourself and a media that has become the mouthpiece of the Democrat Party, was impeached and acquitted, not once but twice, during his entire 4-year term of office on clearly fraudulent charges.

2. I’m outraged that BLM, Antifa, and other Marxists rioted during the summer of 2020 in cities across the country, and “heels-up” Kamala Harris led an effort to bail those who were arrested, out of jail. Over 500 people, arrested for trespassing and vandalism at the Capitol on January 6th, remain in jail without bail and, in some cases, are held in solitary confinement. This is not a defense of vandalism, but how does the damage from the riots of summer 2020 compare to that at the Capitol on January 6th?

3. I’m outraged that a president who accomplished more for the American people in four years than his three immediate predecessors did in 24 years having restored the US economy, cut taxes and regulations, made the US energy independent, brought unemployment rates down to their lowest level ever, destroyed ISIS, brokered peace deals between Israel and other Arab nations, defended our southern border, put America first, etc., etc., was fought every step of the way by Democrats and the Deep State.

4. I’m outraged that this same president, who received eleven million more votes than he did in 2016, was questionably defeated in an election in which election laws were unconstitutionally changed in the days, weeks, and months immediately preceding the election, supposedly because of a virus.

5. I’m outraged that a senile 78-year old career politician, who can’t put a coherent sentence together, who accomplished nothing during his 36 years in the US Senate and eight years as Vice President, who didn’t campaign and seldom left his basement during the campaign for President, and who could never draw a crowd of more than 200 people at one time, was declared the winner over a President who drew tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters at each of his multiple rallies, daily, during the campaign.

6. I’m outraged that Candidate Biden bragged about having put together “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics” (it’s on video) during an interview on October 24, 2020, with Crooked Media, a left-leaning media company founded in 2017 by former Obama staffers, and the media says that Trump lies when he claims the election was stolen!?

7. I’m outraged that on January 28, 2018, before the Council on Foreign Relations, Joe Biden bragged how he once threatened to withhold $1 billion in authorized military aid to Ukraine unless the former President of Ukraine “fired” the prosecutor who was investigating the corrupt energy conglomerate, Burisma, by whom Biden’s son, Hunter, was being paid $84,000 per month to serve on the Board of Directors. Can you say, “quid pro quo?” But, when Trump congratulated the newly elected President of Ukraine, who campaigned on fighting corruption, and encouraged him to follow through on his campaign promise, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) blatantly lied about what Trump said, and Trump got impeached!

8. I’m outraged that the FBI was given Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop computer, the hard-drive of which contained emails reflecting the corrupt practices of the Biden family vis-a-vis Ukraine and China and the FBI did nothing with it since crazy ol’ Joe was running for President. Can you say: “Hillary Clinton and unauthorized servers containing top secret documents?” Do you see a pattern here?

9. I’m outraged that the “New Oligarchs” of high tech are censoring virologists of their right to voice their thoughts and opinions when those opinions conflict with the Democrat Party or the CDC.

10. I’m outraged that an agency for which I proudly worked for nearly 29 years was politicized and corrupted by James Comey who was accurately described as being “out of his mind” and a “crooked cop” by a former Deputy Director of the FBI.

11. I’m outraged that thirteen U.S. Marines were recently killed in Afghanistan by the Taliban just because our senile President was too arrogant to follow the blueprint put together by President Trump and his military advisers for the “conditioned” withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan. Perhaps, you and our incompetent Secretary of Defense objected, but were either too cowardly or too busy promoting Critical Race Theory to push back and provide needed oversight of this withdrawal. You succumbed to “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and now, as a result, you have the blood of thirteen dead American Servicemen on your hands.

12. I’m outraged about how the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. military personnel from Afghanistan was carried out “before” securing the removal of tens of thousands of U.S. citizens, Afghan interpreters, and others who assisted the U.S. military over the past twenty years, leaving them and Afghan Christians to be tortured and killed by the Taliban. And you didn’t even give advance notice to our NATO allies.

13. I’m outraged that you and Lloyd Austin carried out the withdrawal of the U.S. military without first securing the removal of $85 billion worth of military equipment, weapons, ammunition, Humvees, and aircraft, which you left behind for the Taliban, al Qaeda, and a re-emerging ISIS to use. I agree with a retired British Colonel who recently publicly stated that President Biden shouldn’t be impeached, but rather he should be court martialed. You should be, as well, for dereliction of duty and cowardice.

I could go on, but I believe you get “my drift” as to why I and so many others – white, black, Hispanic, Asian, male and female, rich and poor, young and old – are experiencing flashes of “rage” and “anger” against this current administration. If you had any honor and decency, you would resign and retire.
Sincerely,
Quentin L. Smith

V’PAC obtains transcript of Gen Mark Milley from back in the day

(We obtained a transcript of a phone call from the Pentagon a number of years ago. Found it to be intriguing…maybe readers will too.)

Marshall von Runstedt*, this is Mark Milley calling. I’m good. How have you been?

As you know, General Eisenhower has put me in charge of the European Theater.

As I promised you and your boss, Adolph, I’m calling to give you a ‘heads-up’. Our American and allied forces are going to be invading Europe this week, at Normandy. It now appears, due to the weather, that our invasion will occur on 6 June. We’ve designated 5 beaches where US and allied amphibian forces will come ashore. I’ll send you the exact locations by courier later today.

Good luck, Marshall, and be well. I asured you that if we were going to attack, I’d call you ahead of time. Don’t want it to be a surprise.

Always a pleasure talking with you. If you have any questions, don’t call me directly…use our private contact procedure.Bye.                              dlh

———————————————

(This is a the call recently reported a book by Bob Woodward, It occurred much later.):

“General Li, I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” Milley told him. “We are not going to attack or conduct any kinetic operations against you.”

In the book’s account, Milley went so far as to pledge he would alert his counterpart in the event of a US attack, stressing the rapport they’d established through a backchannel. “General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

REPORT: Milley Told China in Secret Phone Call He Would Give the CCP Advance Warning if US Was Ever Going to Attack

—————–
*All German armed forces in the West, on D-Day, came under Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt, as Commander-in-Chief West (Oberbefehlshaber West or OB West). He had two Army Groups under his command – Army Group B in northern France and the Netherlands, and Army Group G in the South of France.

Scott County Republicans ought to be very clear – no private organizations to run elections

  • Iowa Legislature did nothing about private organizations injecting themselves into the running of elections and prioritizing compliant County Auditors responsibilities

There is a Scott County Republican Central Committee meeting to be held this Wednesday September 15, 7:00 PM, at the Eastern Ave. Public Library in Davenport. Republicans concerned about the integrity of the vote and holding Republican lawmakers to task should be there.  A guest speaker  Roby Smith is expected to address election reform “achievements” during the last legislative session. The improvements were marginal, indeed rather pathetic given that Republicans hold both houses of the state legislature and the governorship.

It should be noted that somehow democracy in Iowa survived in earlier decades when absentee voting by mail and early voting was strictly controlled yet voter turn-out was as good or better than today.  Voting by mail is fraught with opportunities for mass fraud and individual privacy issues. Early voting is not conducive to the most informed vote.  It is simply good government to primarily rely on in-person voting with limited exceptions for absentee voting by mail and only in a period, as in back in the day, for at most ten days prior to Election Day.

Voter ID (of a sort) was passed in a previous session but the Republican dominated Iowa legislature failed, and leadership was a big part of that failure, to adequately address fraudulent and potentially fraudulent activity possible in Iowa similar to what was  exposed after the 2020 election.

Improvements were made in a couple of areas. The legislature reduced early voting to 20 days before the election but that is still almost three weeks prior — an eternity for potential political developments and revelations —  but it was all rather tepid given the continued promotion of vote by mail in spite of knowledge of the modus operandi of onesy-twosey cheaters and mass fraud opportunities.

There remain poor audit trail regulations and chain of custody security besides the remaining looseness in vote by mail. That same day voting registration continues to exist reflects an assumption by the legislature that their constituents do not take civic duty seriously.

But perhaps the most egregious failure was not outlawing private organizations the opportunity to target election activity to their partisan advantage using the color of official activity, indeed parlaying existing tax funded activity as a force multiplier for their get out the vote priorities.

That is what happened in Iowa to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars invested by CTCL  an organization run by partisan Democrat hacks, funded by a mega wealthy partisan creep targeting must win counties and other enclaves.  It does not matter how effective it was or was not.  The unprincipled matter of allowing it is what is at issue. And the Iowa legislature has not done anything to prevent it.   See our embedded links at the end of this commentary for related reading.

Dangling grants to County Auditors responsible for not only being above reproach but having a civic obligation to avoid appearance of partisan emphasis in running elections engenders cynicism toward the electoral process. That is not good and the legislature should not allow it.

Punishing by way of some dollar for dollar aid deletion to counties is inadequate to meet the potential for corruption as the most partisan Auditor offices would have no moral qualms about turning their offices over to partisan hacks. Such mega funded influence buying organizations would  be happy to own the processes and take over the running of county election operations. That is because  the most partisan counties might think ~~ well we get our partisan strategy paid for, so what if it is a wash financially because the state reduces something elsewhere.

It should be outlawed.  County Auditors must be above reproach in fact and appearance.

Some auditors including Republican may wrap themselves in some holier-than-though umbrage that they are above reproach (even in appearance) and  such grants as Zuckerberg offered is “found money” and would only be used in furtherance of their established program.

If counties are not adequately budgeting to run an election for their population in their proper roll of siting, being agents for securing the integrity of one man one vote, counting and providing auditable trails — then that county has problems everywhere. The state may need to step in with an emergency grant for those purposes.  However emphasizing early voting, voting by mail (the most insecure way to vote) and subtly  targeted turn-out-the-vote efforts, all of which are the emphasis of grant writing political hacks (frankly of both parties) ought not be a pass-through effort using official county government auspices or tax resources.

Nothing prevents the likes of Zuckerberg funded political operations from having get-out-the-vote efforts.  That is the warp and woof of political parties and PACS and any independent agenda driven organizations.  If they want to wrap themselves selves in a high-sounding “non-partisan” cloak and do the things their grant offers entailed, that is fine as well and have at it. It is a free country but they ought not be able to parlay tax money and official color to their activities. 

Some might regard our position from a partisan conservative perspective, to the effect ~~ what are you worried about, conservatives won the state, the Democrats took a beating in spite of Zuckerberg money, it was a waste of his money ~~.   Well to take that position would indeed be partisan (and shortsighted at that) however even with that in mind Democrats are way ahead of Republicans in gaming strategies and engendering corruptive influences.  It is just too sordid.

Our position is plain.  No outside organization charitable or otherwise no matter their partisan pedigree ought to be allowed to inject themselves into official electoral processes with targeted operational grant programing.  Passive Election Day allowance of building useage if tax supported entities have proven inadequate is an exception that should be very limited.

More on the implications of not preventing  the use of private money to run County Auditor election responsibilities in future post.
