Rep. Eric Swalwell 'nukes' himself in gun control debate on Twitter [here]
11-16-18, WashExaminer -- Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif after conservatives criticized him for calling for the forcible confiscation of Americans weapons - he upped the ante lamenting over his "0 progress" in the gun debate and said he was only going to 'nuke' people sarcastically. Yet he seriously proposed taking away American's right to defend themselves from the government using the word 'nuke.' As a basic reminder, the explicit purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to defend themselves from the government going rogue and becoming a tyranny.
Former President Trump Corona Virus Adviser Dr Deborah Birx Admits to Deceiving the White House
Russia has not been preparing to invade Europe; just looking at the budgets shows this is absolutely an absurd argument.
While the US aid to Ukraine came in at $113 billion far greater than Russia’s budget of 65.9 billion, it is double the military budgets of both France and Germany. It is approaching 50% of the annual budget of China.
Predictions About the Demise of the U.S. Dollar Coming to Pass: Poszar Was Right... Saudis Confirm Non-Dollar Oil Trade Plans In Davos, Switzerland
1-19-23, ZeroHedge --Earlier this month, former NY Fed repo guru Zoltan Pozsar wrote one of his most important reports of 2022,  describing how Russia's Vladimir Putin could unleash hell on the Western financial system by demanding that instead of dollars, Russian oil exporters are paid in gold, effectively pegging oil to gold and launching Petrogold.
Then, China’s President Xi visit with Saudi and GCC leaders marked the birth of the petroyuan and a leap in China’s growing encumbrance of OPEC+’s oil and gas reserves: that’s because with the China-GCC Summit, “China can now claim to have built a ‘special relationship’ not only with the ‘+’ sign in OPEC+ (Russia), but with Iran and all of OPEC+.”
And according to Bloomberg, Saudi Arabia is open to discussions about trade in currencies other than the US dollar, according to the kingdom’s finance minister.
Mohammed Al-Jadaan told Bloomberg TV on 1-17-23, Tuesday in an interview in Davos:“There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it is in the US dollar, whether it is the euro, whether it is the Saudi riyal.” And Al-Jadaan said: “I don’t think we are waving away or ruling out any discussion that wil
It doesn’t sound like ole Joe Biden's administration is high up in Saudi's Kingdom’s strategic planning; and given the comments from The Kingdom’s FinMin, Zoltan’s warnings appear ever closer to reality: “dusk for the petrodollar… and dawn for the petroyuan.“
And ... And that 8600 tons gold held by the US? By FED record all but 81 tons are pledged security held by the FED. It has leaked out that for decades it’s been kept in the lower vaults of JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs. Why then would JP Morgan move their gold trading operation to the jurisdiction of Zurich, Switzerland? The London Metal Exchange [LME] is doing the same. Where does and did - this month- the global elites meet annually? Davos, Switzerland!

However, economists have predicted that measures can provide relief for a few months and there may be conflict between lawmakers and ... In a letter to congressional leaders Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said special financial tools to meet the country's obligations can continue until at least Monday, June 5, 2023. After they expire, Congress will need to act to prevent default.
FBI Raids NYC Building Where Communist China Is Accused Of ‘Conducting’ Secret ‘Police Operations’
1-16-23, Late in 2022 the FBI raided offices that the New York Times reported was a Chinese outpost that the feds say was conducting police operations without jurisdiction or diplomatic approval from U.S. officials. The raid by FBI counterintelligence agents was conducted in conjunction with the U.S. attorney’s office in Brooklyn as part of the U.S. government’s crackdown on communist China’s notorious effort to surveil their citizens and hunt down dissidents overseas and force them to return back to China. The global effort by China, which is present in numerous countries around the world, is known as “Operation Fox Hunt.”
China, which is known for making blatantly false statements, attempted to downplay what these police centers do and suggested that it was just some volunteers who helped people obtain things like a driver’s license.
Reports from inside China showed that Chinese officials bragged about the effectiveness of the “overseas police service centers,” which collect intelligence for the Chinese government. It’s extremely worrying from the human rights perspective. We’re essentially allowing the Chinese diaspora to be controlled by [Communist China] rather than subject to our national laws. That obviously has a huge impact — not only for our relations with the Chinese diaspora across Europe, but also has huge implications for national sovereignty... One example of the Chinese taking efforts to hide their actions came in Europe when a Hungarian lawmaker said he visited a Chinese police center that was clearly marked as “Qingtian Police Overseas Service Station.” After the lawmaker talked about what he saw, the signs instantly vanished.

1-11-23, Dallas Morning News -- For two years Americans have clamored for ole Joe Biden to visit the southern border with Mexico. He finally did and it has brought no respite from allegations that his policies have triggered an unprecedented crisis of migration. Instead of El Paso, he should have gone to South Texas. He averted his eyes from the worst of it; it was half-hearted and long overdue recognition of a crisis of his own making. Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Pilot Point said “he had the audacity to pose for photos by President Trump’s border wall that he stopped completion.”

No Police Officers Were Killed on Jan. 6, But Ashlii Babbitt Was Shot [here]
(CNS News.com)-- Contrary to the claims and inferences by Democrat Party leaders and many people in the left-wing media, not one Capitol Police officer was killed during the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Innocent unarmed woman, Ashlii Babbitt, was shot and killed by capitol Police Officer Lt. Michael Byrd who was not prosecuted or lose his job. The deaths of police did not happen on Jan 6th nor were they caused by Jan 6th event ... see list:
- Brian Sicknick's autopsy report by the D.C. Chief Medical Examiner documents report that Sicknick died of "natural" causes on Jan. 7, 2021 from "acute brainstem and cerebellar infarcts due to acute basilar artery thrombosis,"
- Officer Billy Evans was deliberately hit by a car and died at the Capitol on April 2, 2021; the driver of the vehicle was Noah Green, a "vocal defender of the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan."
- Metropolitan Police Officer Jeffrey Smith was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. He did not die there. Later, on Jan. 15, he committed suicide by shooting himself.
- Gunther Hashida died by suicide on July 29, 2021, nearly eight months after the Capitol riot.
- Police Officer Howard Liebengood also committed suicide on Jan. 9, 2021.
It gets worse for Joe. Another sign that Obama and the Democrat Party are ready to throw ole Joe Biden under the bus.
On Monday, 1-9-23 it was revealed top secret intelligence documents related to Ukraine, UK and Iran were found in Joe Biden’s private office shortly before the 2022 midterm elections. Lo and behold, the mainstream legacy media are NOW actually covering it.
Of course Biden used his old ‘playing dumb’ tactic. He said he was ‘surprised’ that there were classified documents in the boxes. “I don’t know what’s in the documents,” Biden said. Yeah, right. This is a guy who lies as an involuntary reflex. On the other hand, Biden really is stupid and the ruling elite could have planted the boxes to get Joe removed from office. More here:
Robert Hur, former U.S. Attorney for Maryland Nominated by President Trump is Chosen to Investigate ole Joe Biden’s possession of classified docs ... but no raid!
1-12-23, Today ole Joe Biden's Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Robert Hur's appointment to investigate ole Joe Biden's possession of classified documents in his private home's garage that apparently were taken from his time as vice president with Barry Obama.
Hur's history revealed he worked under Rod Rosenstein who worked with Robert Mueller in their tireless failed effort to convict President Trump of something ... anything ... So Robert Hur is perfect for THIS JOB!
Hur's appointment comes as the political ramifications surrounding the investigation intensify. The Justice Department has spent months looking into President Trump's retention of classified documents ultimately raiding his private home in August 2022. That discovery sparked outcry from Biden and other top Democrats, while the developments around Biden have drawn sharp criticism. [..]
Hur is also a former partner at the Washington law firm King & Spalding, where FBI Director Christopher Wray was once also a partner.

1-7-23, Update: McCarthy Won
See list of Concessions he made
- Any member can call for a motion to vacate the speaker’s chair
- A McCarthy-aligned super-PAC (the Congressional Leadership Fund) agreed to not spend in open Republican primaries in safe seats
- The House will hold votes on key conservative bills, including a balanced budget amendment, congressional term limits, and border security
- Efforts to raise the nation’s debt ceiling must be paired with spending cuts
- Move 12 appropriations bills individually, instead of passing separate bills to fund government operations
- More Freedom Caucus representation on committees, including the influential House Rules Committee
- Cap discretionary spending at fiscal year 2022 levels, which would amount to lower levels for defense and domestic programs
- 72 hours to review bills before they come to floor
- Give members the ability to offer more amendments on the House floor
- Create an investigative committee to probe the “weaponization” of the federal government
- Restore the Holman rule, which can be used to reduce the salary of government officials
Sorry that during his speech at Speaker swearing in he did not mention the Lord once that I heard; but happy to see he did in 2014:
McCarthy Confident He'll Have The Votes Friday Night: "Now We Learned How To Govern" -- Real Clear Politics
1-6-23, Annette - CA congressman Kevin McCarthy today said: “Now we’ve learned how to govern.” … WHAT!! He’s been a Congressman for 16 years … "now" he’s learned? Makes me sick.
I just learned that McCarthy doesn't need 218 votes to win. IF a lower number of members show up to vote ... its a majority of whoever is there. Today two didn't appear and he got 214 ... that may be enough tonight 1-6-23, Friday at 10 pm ET depending how many attend and vote.
The fix is in.
NY Post 2015 report … Kevin McCarthy is Compromised ... The twenty holdout patriot Congressman want agreements and concessions in writing because any private deal is worthless with McCarthy. Bills for the border, term limits, the budget, investigating the Biden crime family, Hunter's laptop, Afghanistan debacle, etc. is what the Republican “Establishment” doesn’t need with a base that was already angry enough to toss out a lot of them last year and would have if only we had honest elections. 
As of 1/5/23 Kevin McCarthy has come in second in the race to be Speaker ELEVEN times - yet he's already moved into the office of the Speaker ... Isn't that trespassing?
1-5-23, Annette -- I don't trust what California Kevin McCarthy now says. And apparently neither do the twenty congressmen who are voting to block him from becoming Speaker of the USA House of Representatives. He's been a politician for a long time. These 20 patriots know more than we know and ole Kevin from California has been ensconced in the 'people's house' since 2007; and been in California government since 2002. He tried and failed to be speaker in 2015.
He supports gay marriage, is weak on immigration and wanted President Trump to resign. I don't want Hakeem Jeffries, Democrat 'Baptist' from New York to run the 'House.' However, at this point I don't see much difference in the RINO Republican and the Leftist Democrats.
I, for one, am happy that the government is doing no work and we have no representatives. What good are they?
In 1923 [100 years ago] last time Speaker of House not chosen quickly - and in 1850 it took two months!
It didn't go according to plan, at least for GOP leader Kevin McCarthy who became the first majority nominee for speaker in 100 years to fail to win an initial vote for the gavel after not getting 218 votes. He also lost the sixth round of voting with no exit (or winning) strategy in sight. Needing 218 votes in the full House. McCarthy had pledged a “battle on the floor” for as long as it took to overcome right-flank fellow Republicans who were refusing to give him their votes. The House adjourned without a leader.

The Twenty Republican Patriots Against McCarthy [here]
Following is the list of lawmakers who are preventing the election of Kevin McCarthy of California to be Speaker of the House of Representatives: =>
| || |
The last speaker election to go beyond the first ballot was in 1923, when members took nine tries to name Frederick Gillett (R-Mass.) to the position. The all-time record for duration of a speaker vote was in the mid-1850s — when lawmakers took almost two months and 133 ballots before picking Nathaniel Banks, also of Massachusetts.
The House can change the election rules allowing a simple majority of votes to become the speaker, but this could backfire for the Republicans since Jeffries, in theory, could win a majority vote.
On Wednesday, 1-4-23, the House voted 216-214 to adjourn just before 8:30 p.m., setting up a seventh speaker vote for Thursday, 1-5-23.
1-4-23, FoxNews -- Boebert of Colorado and two other Congressmen presented some simple requests to Kevin McCarthy that if he HAD agreed - IT would've given him the win in the first ballot. The twenty conservative Congressmen asked for bills for: border security, term limits and reducing the federal debt. The California RINO rejected it; so tomorrow, Thursday, 1-5-23 the House goes for seventh ballot. Lauren Boebert disputed claims by other Republicans that their opposition was petty. She said: “I don’t think a secure border is petty. I don’t think a term limits bill being brought to the floor, we're not demanding them to pass, but brought to the floor so we actually have an option to vote on that is petty.
“We asked for the Republican Study Committee’s budget be put forward. This is a budget that balances in seven years, and Kevin McCarthy told us no.”
At the moment, the twenty patriots have the upper hand and McCarthy is panicking. Just hold the line and Uniparty ** [RINOs] will suffer a humiliating defeat.

Tucker: Biden administration is close to giving WHO power over every intimate aspect of your life
5-19-22, Fox News, TuckerCarlson -- In 2021 when ole Joe Biden, in one of his very first acts as president, brought the USA back into the World Health Organization [WHO] [in 2020 President Trump Removed America (here)] We assumed it was just part of his larger 'de-orangification' efforts [reversing all President Trump's acts]. Childish, but that seemed like a fair explanation. Still, seemed weird because there aren't many international bodies that are more thoroughly discredited than the WHO, particularly after COVID. It's a laughingstock. [..] WHO will ensure "equitable and effective access to vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics and essential supplies and for clinical trials" and that means, again quoting, "health care workers and the most vulnerable will have priority access." Not the sickest, not the people who need the medicine most, but the most vulnerable in a larger sense. In other words, favored groups get medicine first. [..]
The Biden administration's amendments, along with those from several other countries, will be combined to create a new global pandemic treaty. "We need a pandemic treaty." That treaty is set to be adopted in Geneva at the World Health Assembly. [..] Here's the catch. The WHO gets to define what a pandemic is, when a pandemic is in progress and how long a pandemic lasts.
Then you read the fine print:
"... the WHO will have total authority over emergency operations in the USA if there's ever a "public health emergency." Huh? [..] Every physician, practicing in the US promises not to do what you just heard, and it would become mandatory under this treaty. This is lunacy.

Republican in Name Only [Rino] Congressman Kevin McCarthy said he "does not favor legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship." But will he vote for it?? Trick! It is clear to many members of the general public that if Congress changes our laws to accommodate millions of illegal migrants by removing the current penalties of law (such as deportation). The "legalize illegals without citizenship" ruse is a way for Republicans like Kevin McCarthy to achieve amnesty by setting up bad legislation ...
According to a report by Breitbart's Mathew Boyle in 2014 Kevin McCarthy, John Boehner and Steve Scalise tricked 219 Republican lawmakers into voting in support of Obama's amnesty actions. Apparently Kevin McCarthy helped switch the text of a bill at the last minute without informing lawmakers on H.R. 5759, first put forward by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), but subsequently dramatically altered by leadership officials in the Rules Committee process. More here from ALIPAC
Democrat from New York is leading in the third vote of the new 118th US Congress; his name is Hakeem Jeffries and Wikipedia says he's a Baptist in religion.

I don't agree with what Congressman Jordan said about McCarthy and now doubt "him."

Judge: People Charged in January 6 Capitol Riot Being Treated ‘Tougher’ than Others
1-2-23, Canada Free Press -- Almost two years after the January 6, 2021 [J6] Washington D.C. protests that Democrats and the mainstream news media call an “insurrection,” the Department of Justice (DOJ) is still asking for the public’s help in identifying more people to arrest.
The harsh treatment of the J6 prisoners is in sharp contrast to the rioters who burned and looted in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.. and other riots and mayhem.
The conditions in these prisons are so horrific that 34 January 6th (J6) prisoners asked for a transfer to the military terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Gitmo). In their letter pleading for a transfer, the J6 prisoners said that Gitmo would provide what they are lacking in their D.C. prison, namely “nutritional meals, sunlight exposure, top notch medical care,” and respect for “religious requirements.”
Of the 964 individuals charged with crimes for their participation in the protests of January 6, 2021, “hundreds” are still in Washington D.C. prisons today.
=== Prior to the breach of the U.S. Capitol - on Jan 6, 2021 President Trump told the massive crowd of his supporters to march “over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
[Note: this report reveals a much softer report of the abuses to the Sixers [if any] - now we can't tell what's true. Except for the fact of course - that still being incarcerated is outrageous. - Annette]

"MSG instituted a straightforward policy that precludes attorneys pursuing active litigation against the Company from attending events at our venues until that litigation has been resolved.

The first world war was a kind of cultural suicide that destroyed Europe’s eminence...
12-17-22, Henry Kissinger, Spectator* -- [..] In August 1916, after two years of war and millions in casualties, the principal combatants in the West (Britain, France and Germany) began to explore prospects for ending the carnage. [..] Col Edward House, President Woodrow Wilson’s personal emissary of the USA revealed that a peace based on the modified status quo ante was within reach. However, Wilson delayed until after the presidential election in November. However, by then the British Somme and the German Verdun offensives had added another two million casualties. The Great War went on for two more years and claimed millions more victims.
Does today’s world find itself at a comparable turning point in Ukraine as winter imposes a pause on large-scale military operations there? For the first time in history, Ukraine has become a major state in Central Europe. [..] This process has mooted the original issues regarding Ukraine’s membership in NATO [and citizen abuses in the Donbas – Ed. (1)].
Ukraine’s army is equipped mostly by the USA and some allies. A peace process should link Ukraine to NATO, however expressed. [..] The goal of a peace process would be twofold:
1. to confirm the freedom of Ukraine [and Russians in Ukraine- Ed.]
2. define a new international structure
For some, the preferred outcome is a Russia rendered impotent by the war. I disagree. For all its propensity to violence, Russia has made decisive contributions to the global equilibrium and to the balance of power for over half a millennium. Its historical role should not be degraded.
Russia’s military setbacks have not eliminated its global nuclear reach, enabling it to threaten escalation in Ukraine. Even if this capability is diminished, the dissolution of Russia or destroying its ability for strategic policy could turn its territory encompassing eleven time zones into a contested vacuum. Its competing societies might decide to settle their disputes by violence and other countries might seek to expand their claims by force. All these dangers would be compounded by the presence of thousands of nuclear weapons which make Russia one of the world’s two largest nuclear powers.
As world leaders strive to end the war … they should reflect on the impact of long-term strategy of incipient high–technology and artificial intelligence. Autonomous weapons (2) already exist, capable of defining, assessing and targeting their own perceived threats and thus in a position to start their own war. Once the line into this realm is crossed and hi-tech becomes standard weaponry – and computers become the principal executors of strategy – the world will find itself in a condition for which as yet it has no established concept:
<= Kissinger cont'd: How can leaders exercise control when computers prescribe strategic instructions on a scale and in a manner that inherently limits and threatens human input?
How can civilization be preserved amid such a maelstrom of conflicting information, perceptions and destructive capabilities? No theory for this encroaching world yet exists, and consultative efforts on this subject have yet to evolve. [..] The quest for peace has two components that are sometimes treated as contradictory:
1. the pursuit of elements of security
2. the requirement for acts of reconciliation
If we cannot achieve both, we will not be able to reach either.

China sends 71 planes, seven ships toward self-governing Taiwan [here]
12-26-22< NYPost -- China considers Taiwan part of its territory and over the past couple of years has ramped up its military posture against the island. Recently sent warplanes into its air space and conducting military exercises in the waters nearby. Shi Yi, the spokesman for the People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command said:
“This is a firm response to the current US-Taiwan escalation and provocation.”
The reference was to the 2023 National Defense Authorization Act that the US Congress passed and ole Joe Biden signed on Friday, 12-23-22. [..]
It contains more than $10 billion in security assistance for Taiwan over the next five years. China’s foreign ministry said the aid “blatantly interferes in China’s internal affairs.”
