Today is the 79th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack precipitated the U.S. in entering World War 2 fighting against the Axis of Evil comprised of Japan, Italy and Germany. The cost in American lives was over 400,000 and total worldwide casualties in military and civilian lives estimated at 50 million including the U.S. detonation of atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. terrible
Now, as then, we face another Asian enemy in the form of the Communist Chinese Party. Check out this video played on Fox News' Tucker Carlson...
Click on that link and the video is right there in the Tucker Carlson segment about Chinese influence, since the 1970's, into the U.S. financial sector, Wall Street, and therefore into U.S. policies as a whole, both domestic and foreign. The person doing the talking is Di Dongsheng who is a professor at Renmin Univ. in Beijing. He made the remarks on a Chinese TV show and then posted them to his social media account; it was soon deleted. He claimed that between '92 and 2020 the PTB were able to resolve any number of problems in two months or less; including the "Yinhe incident, bombing of an embassy and crashing of a plane. Because, in his words, "We have people at the inner core of political and financial influence"; "We have our old friends". He talked about an especially effective agent working as vice president of a top Wall Street firm and Wall Street has had a significant influence on American policy since the 1970's. Then Trump was elected and "He has a previous soft default issue with Wall Street and there was conflict between them".
At this point, Tucker reminds us that earlier this year the chairman of the chemistry department at Harvard Univ. was arrested for taking $50,000 a month from Chinese actors for trade secrets and referring top scientists to the Chinese Communist Party.
What really got me, though, was the way he delivered this part of his speech: "But now we see that Biden was elected" ; pause for effect or to revel in the fact of their great 'achievement'? Everybody was so sure Russia was meddling; did anybody check to make sure China wasn't involved? He continues, "The traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they're very close to Wall Street. You see that, right? Who helped Biden's son build that global foundation?"
No wonder they prefer a Hidin' Joe Bribin' uh Biden presidency. They essentially have the go ahead to steal and loot with impunity anything they want from our national treasure. Great for them, not so much for regular Americans. Supreme Court must get involved to prevent this theft of an election from taking place. It's like you and a friend watching a wizard performing a magic trick, shell game perhaps, and afterward your friend, who has bet you which shell contains the outcome, peeks under the shell closest to them and slams it down again all the while telling you that they were right and it is indeed under that shell. The more they refuse to show you the contents, the more you are sure something dubious is taking place. Why wouldn't the PTB want to grant access to the logs of those voting machines thereby putting to rest everybody's fears of a stolen election? Sunlight should be the best disinfectant, but it ain't; why is that?

I think the sheer amount and breadth of statistical near impossibilities when it came to specific counties in specific swing states makes this election, factually beyond doubt, null and void. Lesser circumstantial evidence is used routinely to convict the worst of crimes. Hopefully certain Judges will have that same reaction and not shrink from what is true and right, but do what is necessary in any healthy and thriving society when it comes to the 'reading of the law' and so settle this dispute between states of Constitutional integrity. After everything else, we must have the truth or what holds us as a glue bonding us together will be greatly damaged and changed forever.
Here is a site keeping up with the election timeline so far...

There was a thread about censorship in General when I was here many months ago, I think, and I made some clueless and totally irrelevant post about a school board meeting somewhere; well, little did I know about the, clearly, real censorship that would occur. Censorship by the mainstream news media, censorship by the big tech media overlords and censorship by the ever present threat of cancellation on a whim of the "woke" mob. How can MSM ever sincerely claim curiosity and objectivity again? I'd be ashamed to call myself a "reporter" let alone take money for supposedly being one. And now even National Review is starting to go Drudge on me; what is going on? Is it all just !#&@%*? Perhaps the answer is to back off and come at it again objectively. Maybe I'm reading to much into what I've seen. Maybe sometimes things happen that, though they violate every law and rule you know, they actually happen. If that is the case then fine, certify and continue on with the process. With so much on the line, what is the harm in making sure the 'total' at least approximates the total?
Anyway, in talking about censorship, the recent examples are shocking and seemingly more frequent in occurrence. From blocking medical remedies to a complete blackout of the Hunter Biden pay for play foreign ChiCom money scheme; the level and extent of all the censorship is just mindblowing, and now this from your friends at Youtube...
"YouTube to remove new videos that falsely claim fraud changed U.S. election outcome
(Reuters) -YouTube said on Wednesday it would start removing content that falsely allege widespread fraud changed the outcome of the U.S. presidential election, in a change to its more hands-off stance on videos making similar claims."
"The update, which applies to content uploaded from Wednesday, comes a day after “safe harbor”, a deadline set by U.S. law for states to certify the results of the presidential election.
YouTube said it would start enforcing the policy in line with its approach towards historical U.S. presidential elections."

I participated in a "claim of non partisan involvement" with a UNIVERSITY STUDY about BIG TECH INFLUENCE IN US ELECTIONS . It started in September- the rules were: No Social Media, NO TWITTER , NO FACEBOOK, etc.. I happily complied because I cant stand them and do not understand how a lot of the US citizens , can use these platforms knowingly and are apparently ignorant or absolutely unaware of the damage it causes to our country. So I feel that many were or are MOST DEFINITELY BRAINWASHED all these past years into hating President Trump, due to social media, (including our daughter who cut us off when he was elected). So I terminated my FB account and I have never had anything else. I used to watch FOX news (now I watch OANN or Newsmax), they seem to be the most trustworthy news people or maybe the only ones I felt comfortable with..
I began the "unbiased" study questions , and there were only a few on the first one ( I think I did about 6 surveys and quickly ended it when I realized FB was behind it ).
1) Are you more Republican or Democrat leaning? You got a scale for each : 1-100 % I set mine on 100% for Republican. I put on 0 for Democrat.
2) How often do you use social media? 5 answers - All the time, 10- times a week, 5 times a week, once a week- or little or non. I of course used that LITTLE / NONE.
3) DO YOU FEEL THAT SOCIAL MEDIA also including MSM, HAS an influence on the way people vote in US elections? (This was a stupid question because most everyone gets their news from one of these sources-) l answered YES
4) For your news , Do you watch CBS, NBC, CNN, ABC, FOX NEWS - I selected FOX NEWS.
5) In this upcoming US Presidential election, How LIKELY are you to VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN? FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP? Again a scale and I put 100% for Trump, and 0 for Joe.
That was end of that survey. Over the next 3 months, I did 5 more - and all were asking the same questions but in round about ways.. I got a few Amazon gift cards for my "help" , but I watched those senate hearings with Ted Cruz just jumping all over FB's Mark Z and Twitter's CEO Dorsey.. I watched those intently . I decided I was okay living without social media and that they definitely influence people on their choices for election of US presidents. I also emailed the universities that were involved with this study, told them it was dumb and was not going to do a thing because FB MArk Z used a lot of $$$ towards helping the " powers that be" let the swing states have their people at the polls- do bad things for the election. I was APPALLED by what happened in Wisconsin and PA and so furious!! I wanted to email Marky and let him know his company and Twitter need to go down in flames with people starting it by shutting down all those accounts- You Tube pulling this censorship garbage is now ridiculous ! Now FB is banning our own US President Trump.. seriously they think they can get away with this?
Now today.. Pelosi and apparently the left and everyone who was influenced or threatened, has done the impeachment thing to President Trump again - He did not tell anyone to go busting into the Capitol ! Antifa is responsible once again I saw the pictures of the two guys claiming how they were in the Capitol in the senate floor and it ios marekd with his name and ANTIFA- I figure FB knows about these people- what I can't figure is how the Capitol got broken into- someone had to have LET those people in and with backpacks? .. I feel so bad for President Trump, whom I think did a really good job for all Americans and fighting this terrible and unexpected China made plague, now he is being attacked once again by THEM because he was not in it for the politics or the money- like the rest of those crooks. Pelosi, is just an awful woman- tearing up his speech during the State of the Union Address last year was so disgraceful! I cant believe she is still Speaker...

You are, most assuredly, not the only one feeling angry and cheated by it all, Susan. The election was one thing, but now we've drifted right into center stage surrealism where censorship has now become unapologetic mainstream and, as the long knives come out for President Trump, swamp things fall all over themselves for position in the 'woke' theater of D.C. drama. It's as disheartening as it is eye-opening. I didn't vote for Trump the first time as I was unsure about his ability and sincerity of reason for wanting the job. And, no, I didn't vote for Hillary 'Let Them Eat Cake' Clinton either; choosing instead to write in a candidate. But I was wrong about President Trump, clearly on one assumption and pretty sure the other as well so, as one of the millions who voted for him, the suspicions of fraud that started election night with the sudden stop in vote counting in the wee hours of the morning (which election observers will tell you is a big red flag) continued the next day when we all woke up to discover that Biden had come back to overtake Trump in every one of the states he was trailing the night before. All the other things we have learned since then like republican observers being barred from observing, late night ballot dumps (all for Biden) and the rejection rates for mail in ballots dropping off to almost nothing; especially considering it should have risen significantly due to the amount of new mail in applications received, only further my suspicion that there was a concerted effort to get Biden elected using whatever fraudulent means necessary. Unless and until there is some kind of effort to audit or otherwise explain the numerous and clear instances of election subterfuge, I will continue to believe the election was a fraud and therefore null and void.
"There are several reports on Election night that five battleground states quit counting on Election night.
NewsMax pointed out the coincidence of it happening in those five states with Democratic governors (except for Georgia) with Trump ahead before the “pauses.”
Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada mysteriously quit counting after midnight."...

I had seen a couple articles alluding to the infiltration of the Trump supporters rally last week at the Capitol by Antifa and other extremist elements. It looked reasonable and I still think there was at least some agitation by those extremists that contributed to the overall atmosphere of destruction and violence, however a reporter at The Blaze, Elijah Schaffer, who has reported extensively on BLM and Antifa throughout the summer riots, was at the Capitol that day reporting on the mayhem and he contends that the riots did not start with Antifa nor were it's members responsible for storming Congress. I have to believe him as there's no reason, that I can see, for him to lie about it and he was there. It would be better if it wasn't so and easy to absolve Trump supporters of some of the guilt, but the truth is, I think, there are always knuckleheads in any crowd and, Antifa or not, there was a small minority portion who were going to riot and smash no matter what happened. That was just as wrong as the rioting, burning, looting and murder perpetrated last year by the violent leftist mobs of BLM and Antifa activists and those responsible should be prosecuted. Isn't it peculiar how fast the phrase "mostly peaceful protesters" has disappeared from the national media lexicon now that the rioting is on the other foot. Quite the opposite in fact; the msm now goes out of it's way to paint Trump supporters, Republicans and conservatives in general as the most vile and non-redeemable cretins to ever draw breath. Also peculiar is the fervor and speed at which the police continue to identify, arrest and charge the rioters with the FBI leading the way. Yes, they should be arrested and prosecuted, as already stated, but where was all this investigated power during the summer riots when peoples lives and property were going up in flames and over two dozen people lost their lives? It's as if the ptb are as much as telling the people they are second class and the lives of our 'rulers' are much more valuable and examples must be made for anybody daring to breath the same air as our well pampered "representatives".
You have hit at the heart of why I've got this bad, bad feeling deep down inside when I see the rapid pace and enormous scope of the censorship that has and, according to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, will continue to take place on an even grander scale in the future if he has anything to say about it. What's so dismaying is the silence and apparent approval from half the country that this is okay. They are okay with silencing half the country from speaking in the de facto public square of social media. They are okay with impeaching President Trump for telling his supporters to peacefully march on the Capitol and make their voices heard; it's in the speech transcript whereas his calls for violence and rioting is not, and even going so far as to try and have Senators Cruz and Hawley labeled as domestic terrorists and put on the no fly list (ridiculous) for having the audacity to exercise their right and indeed their duty to stand up and challenge the prevailing election narrative that so many find false and hollow. They are okay with half the country being dragged through the mud of libel and slander by the lying msm, slimy poloticians, virtue signalling social media sycophants and 'holier than thou' out of touch celebrities who routinely castigate the 'bitter, clinging deplorables' as unthinking rubes who need to be "deprogrammed/reprogrammed". For these reasons and more my heart is heavy and weary of the place where this all leads. Don't they know the reason freedom of speech is the first and most valuable right of citizens in a free society? Don't they realize what will happen when the monster is through feasting on the speech of those they oppose; haven't they thought this through? Apparently they have not as they continue to sit on the sidelines in complicit silence while the systematic deplatforming and silencing of conservative voices continues unabated. THAT is how and why they get away with it - they are allowed to get away with it.
Can this be stopped or at least blunted with half the country silently condoning the dehumanizing and throttling of those who the media and culture megaphones constantly lambast as racist, hating white supremacists? Will anybody on the left stand up and try to insert a modicum of reason into the quickly deteriorating civility and courtesy of public discourse? I won't say no, but, you gotta admit, it doesn't look good.

Well looks like SCOTUS dodged the Texas lawsuit like agents dodging bullets in the Matrix trilogy; so much for that. Aren't they also citizens of this great country themselves? Are they not concerned about nationwide fraud rising to the level of a completely stolen election? It doesn't seem so or else why then would they punt the ball and leave the truth out in the cold? They say Texas had no standing. Have they seen a map lately? Texas is the one standing right in the middle supporting and enabling the rest in just about every sense of the word 'standing'. Cut us out and you're all in trouble.
I really have to give it to the flying snail on this one though. They have to command at least half the worlds geniuses in the way this steal was conceived and carried out. They had the foresight to install cheating software in advance plus instruct enough of the key election people in how to stop the count, insert the fraudulent ballots, continue the count then swear everything was above board afterwards. Add a few more tricks of tuning down the rejection rates of mail in ballots and producing ballot 'dumps' all in favor of Biden at the right juncture and presto/chango an election stolen. A truly admirable feat of chicanery and deceit.
It would be natural and easy to hold some kind of bad feelings not only for the people who orchestrated this massive fraud, but for the ones who afterward claim that nothing at all shady or illegal had taken place and to question it makes the questioner not only a tin foil hat conspiracy theorist but just a bad person in general. But I think Glenn is right on this - we can't, no matter how we feel, hold any kind of hate or ill will against the people who we are sure are on the wrong side of this whole election thing. We are all still children of God. We are still free to live our lives striving to be an example of what is good and right. Hate will not let us be free. We must rise above and, even though we may feel cheated and marginalized, continue to love and accept people no matter how their perception and opinion differs from ours. Trust in God and it's going to be alright.

Well people in Georgia will vote today to elect either democrats or republicans to two Senate seats and decide the "balance of power" in the upper house of Congress. Using quotations because it's becoming increasingly more difficult to distinguish the difference in the results of what happens depending on who holds the power. An example...

Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that republicans were holding hearings and grilling Big Tech CEOs about censoring conservative viewpoints on their platforms even totally blocking the Hunter Biden laptop story and completely censoring The Washington Post who broke the story as well as deleting any link to the story itself. Well here an opportunity presents itself to rectify that one sided situation and most republicans vote with the "leadership" to pass the bill anyway. Only 7 republican senators broke with the majority and voted against so apparently it's not really a big deal to the rest of them. Further proof, I think, that our "representatives" aren't so much interested in looking out for the regular American people as making sure their $30,000 a plate fund raising buddies get theirs. Sure, always been that way and, given human nature, probably always will be, at least in some kind of way. It's just extremely maddening to know they probably don't care if we all drown in the rising tsunami of lies and deceit just so long as we show up on election day to give them our vote. If one pundit has implored the audience that getting out to vote in Georgia is absolutely imperative and essential for the "survival of the country itself" 5,000 have; it's all you hear the last few days. So, once again, we're supposed to carry our sorry butt to the ballot box and save the country from certain doom only to be forgotten about the minute their victory is assured. Isn't there something about insanity and doing the same thing over and over...
