White Executive Privilege

 



"Millions of Americans have been sold a fraud that the election was stolen. Republicans have the duty to tell the American people that this is not true. Perpetuating the Big Lie is an attack on the core of our constitutional republic."

Rep. Elizabeth Cheney

NOTE TO CAROLINE KENNEDY:

Liz deserves next year's Profiles in Courage Award. Just a suggestion.

Can you imagine the shit-storm of outraged political invective that would have hit the fan had Barack Obama claimed "executive privilege" post presidency? No, neither can I. The right wing SCREAM machine would have gone into convulsions of spastic apoplexy had something that unconstitutional transpired. Let's just understate the situation by saying that they would not have taken it too well, okay? Once they had come back into consciousness, they would have rightly pointed out that executive privilege only pertains to sitting presidents and that, once they are out of office, they're on their own. Can you see Jimmy Carter citing "executive privilege" after being out of office for nearly forty years? Then again, in my wildest and weirdest dreams, I cannot even imagine Jimmy attempting anything quite that ridiculous. The man has an abundance of common sense. Donald Trump - on the other hand - is ridiculous personified. 

Any hopes we might have had that Donald Trump would gently disappear into that good night of obscurity have been dashed. He has revived his role as the greatest cancer on our national political conversation, and he is apparently determined to stay there. He is back at the rally pulpit and has every intention of staying there until at least January 20, 2025. Aren't I lucky? For someone who thrives on political craziness and unintentional comedy, this is a great time to be alive, indeed.

Trump is demanding that the Biden White House not release any documents pertaining to his final months in office. NBC News has obtained a letter to the National Archives written by White House counsel Dana Remus:

"President Biden has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interest of the United States. and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents."

In effect, the Biden folks are telling Trump to go fuck himself -
in a nice and polite way, I'm sure. This is a gang that has much to hide, of that there can be not a molecule of doubt. My prediction over three years ago that Donald Trump will primarily be remembered as the first former president to go to federal prison still stands. Three former Trump administration workers (including Steve Bannon) are refusing to answer subpoenas to appear before a congressional investigating committee. Do these lamebrains understand that The Donald no longer possesses the power of the pardon? They're about to find out the hard way. Do they remember a woman by the name of Susan McDougal? In 1998 she refused to cooperate in Ken Starr's nutty Whitewater investigation. She wound up doing eighteen months in the slammer. Do Bannon and company beleieve that the punitive side of the law applies only to Democrats? This is going to be interesting.

What happened in Washington D.C. nine months and five days ago marked the first time in our two-hundred and forty-five year history that the USA did not have a peaceful transfer of power. We had a presidential election just prior to the outset of the American civil war - and one during it. Both transfers of power were peaceful. In 1861 and 1865, not a drop of blood was spilled on the streets of Washington. Not so in 2021. If it is revealed that the former president of the "United" States of America had prior knowledge of and took part in what went down on that infamous day, he needs to be prosecuted (as they say) "to the fullest extent of the law" and sent to prison for the rest of his miserable life - or whatever is left of it. It's called "sedition" kiddies. There's something for you to ponder.

You keep pointing out Republican and "conservative" hypocrisy, but we all know they've got their mind set a certain way. It's not hypocrisy to them when they can use their Olympic-level mental gymnastics to justify why it's okay for them or it's a non-issue in that context and why it's tyranny and the end of democracy as we know it when someone with a D next to their name does anything.

A new Rasmussen poll highlighted in the Washington Examiner reports that 56% of Americans surveyed believe “It’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 41% who say it’s ‘very likely.’”

This is a significant increase from April, Paul Bedard notes, when 51% of respondents said it was ‘likely’ that cheating took place in the presidential election. Thus, the mass censorship of Americans who question the election, including former President Donald Trump himself, only appears to be exacerbating doubts.

Furthermore, the great majority of Americans seek to avoid a repeat of the 2020 elections by forbidding mass absentee voting by mail.

“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that wider use of mail-in voting will lead to more cheating in elections, including 51% who say it’s Very Likely,” the report noted. “Twenty-eight percent (28%) don’t think more mail-in voting will mean more cheating, including 14% who say it is Not At All Likely.”

While 95% agree that election cheating should be stopped, the Democratic Party continues to push federal legislation that would expand mass mail-in voting, while opposing strict voter ID laws. The Democrats’ opposition to voting integrity legislation is only fueling doubts about the legitimacy of U.S. elections.

Opinion polls on election cheating somehow forget to include Trump's coup.

"The Democrats’ opposition to voting integrity legislation is only fueling doubts about the legitimacy of U.S. elections."

No. It is Trump and radical Right's BIG LIE that has brainwashed and fueling doubt in idiots.

There's no evidence of significant mail in ballot fraud. Or any other fraud. None. But the polls don't tell anyone that, do they? Rasmussen is partisan.

Too many Americans believe a criminal liar and his stooges. THAT is the threat to our democracy.

Nobody cheats more than Republicans and Trump. Just the facts.

Trafalgar Group Poll: 75 Percent of Voters Disapprove of Kamala Harris’s Handling of Border Crisis

Majority of Democrats rate 'border czar's' performance 'poor'.

The Majority of Americans still oppose Trump and the GOP. They just want President Biden to stop trying to compromise. We know that the GOP doesn't care about us.

Biden said at the time that his administration was "bringing together the port operators, shipping lines, the labor unions, trucking companies, railroads, and others to speed up the port's operations."

But the Washington Post, which endorsed Biden in 2020, reported in an in-depth feature the "commercial pipeline that each year brings $1 trillion worth of toys, clothing, electronics and furniture from Asia to the United States is clogged and no one knows how to unclog it."

Biden chose Buttigieg as Transportation secretary even though he was "completely unqualified," and now the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor "is absent during a transportation crisis that is hurting working-class Americans."

Buttigieg has said in recent interviews that "it's an incredibly complicated situation," but the government is holding virtual "roundtables" with port operators, labor unions and private companies. Nevertheless, he told MSNBC last Thursday, the "challenges" will continue, not only "going into the next year or two, but going into the long term."

The paper quoted Brian Bourke, chief growth officer at SEKO Logistics, warning the problem is "going to get worse again before it gets better."

"Global supply chains are not built for this. Everything is breaking down," he said.

And the polls reflect this concern, this total mess created by Biden.

Racism isn't racism to racists.

Systemic denial of systemic racism is actually systemic racism. No wonder the radical Right sees the study and teaching of slavery and racism and their effects as a Marxist assault on our freedom. This is why they want to ban the 1619 Project and anything that looks like CRT. Conservative white people see themselves as the real victims of racism.

Poll shows Americans’ Views of Systemic Racism Divided by Race

The UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion conducted an independent, nonpartisan national survey asking 1,000 respondents about race, discrimination and systemic racism and found from policing, to the economy to the workplace, race divides Americans’ views of many issues.

A majority of American adults polled think that policing in this country is not fair – 51 percent say that Blacks are treated less fairly than whites in their interactions with police, compared to 41 percent who say they are treated the same. Another 7 percent say whites are treated less fairly than Blacks. Among Black respondents, the perception that Blacks are treated less fairly is higher, at 73 percent, while nearly half of white respondents, 48 percent, think Blacks are treated less fairly than whites.


84% of Trump voters think “anti-white discrimination” is a major problem in the United States. 91% of Biden voters believe that systemic racism is an issue in America and 45 percent of Trump voters said they agree in the poll.

Biden's numbers have been battered by the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, among other issues
The Real Clear Politics polling average for Obama on October, 11 2009 stood at 53 per cent approval and 40 per cent disapproval
Biden currently stands at 43 per cent approval and 52.3 per cent disapproval
A new Axios/Ipsos poll released Tuesday found that Americans are getting more pessimistic about the pandemic, and losing trust in Biden at the same time
The poll found that currently 42 per cent of Americans surveyed trusted Biden a great deal or a fair amount on COVID-19

Even CNN’s Chris Cillizza Admits Americans Want Less Government and Dear Leader Biden Ain’t Cutting It

Senior Analyst Chris Cillizza said the quiet part out loud today when he acknowledged several important truths in his column. First, he acknowledged that Biden is a radical. It’s not the first time he admitted it and hopefully it won’t be the last. Second, he said that the Biden-Harris regime’s plans for massive infrastructure and social safety net bills will introduce massive amounts of government into our lives. Third, he quoted a poll that showed Americans are done with big government after the failures we’ve seen this year.

In short, centrists and conservatives are ready for government to stop meddling and just get the heck out of lives. Leftists are still lost in their crusade to find someone to save them.

“Everything Has Gone Up!” Prices Explode At Grocery Stores Around The Country/World…

WALTHAM (CBS) – “The meat is above and beyond all right?” Fadia Chamoun of Lexington lamented as she packed her trunk full of groceries. “It has gone sky high. Everything has gone sky high and it’s extremely sad.”

If it feels like lately everything is more expensive, that’s because it is.

“The government [just] released that prices over the past 12 months have increased 5.4% and that marks the fifth month in a row of over 5% price increases,” Boston University Questrom School of Business professor Jay Zagorsky explained. “That means that roughly every 14 or 15 years, all prices double. Everything is twice as expensive if this keeps up.”

The price increases have hit certain industries particularly hard over the last year. Used car prices are up about 24 percent. The cost of meat has gone up 12 percent in 12 months. Home heating oil is up an estimated 43 percent. Another area on the top of many commuters’ minds: gas prices, which have risen by more than $1 a gallon

‘Not a militiaman – a longtime FBI informant’: BOMBSHELL piece has people questioning if Jan 6 was part of FBI’s ‘Operation Cold Snap’

According to BuzzFeed’s exceptional July 2021 investigative report on the FBI-led plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, Robeson “helped organize the national meeting, and he was enthusiastically pushing people he knew to attend.” The purpose of the conference was to recruit people who ultimately would stoke “political violence” against governors who refused to reopen their states after lockdowns supposedly necessitated by COVID.

Some participants said Robeson, known as “Robey,” relentlessly pestered them until they agreed to show up; people came from as far as Maryland and Kansas City, BuzzFeed’s Ken Bensinger and Jessica Garrison reported. One member of the Three Percenters, an alleged militia group on the FBI’s naughty list, observed people taking photos from discreet locations in the hotel. “The feds are everywhere,” he thought to himself.

Indeed. One of the feds was Robeson himself.


The event was part of Operation Cold Snap, an FBI gig started in spring 2020 to infiltrate “individuals…discussing the violent overthrow of certain government and law enforcement components.”

Not antifa or BLM. Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, Three Percenters. Same guys at J6

Not Antifa or BLM, who were literally destroying property, taking over parts of cities, assaulting and even killing people. NO no, those evil people who lean right.

They’re the real problem.

FBI SA in Whitmer case testimony: “From the FBI…domestic terrorism operation center, I was aware of other FBI investigations in Baltimore and Milwaukee and Cincinnati and Indiana involving other militia members . . . who were attending the national conference in Dublin.”

— Julie Kelly 🇺🇸 (@julie_kelly2) October 15, 2021

The conference pushed by Robeson.

You know, the FBI informant.

This is mind blowing: “Robeson founded the Wisconsin Patriot Three Percenters. Three Percenters, along with the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, are considered right-wing extremist militias by the FBI.”

A decades-long FBI informant started a chapter of a militia group? Sounds legit.

You won't tell us why conservatives are afraid of people voting.

You won't tell us why new magic ID's are necessary.

You wont't tell us who will PAY for all these new ID's and what the grounds for refusal would be.

You won't admit that trump LIED about the election being stolen

You won't admit that the Covid "hot spots" are in states where the governors are thwarting efforts to contain it and that over 95% of all hospitalizations (and deaths) are the un-vaccinated.


You won't tell us if you are vaccinated
