Another optimist who sees more indictments coming.
I think more indictments are possible, but likely only of figures outside the current administration and FBI/DOJ. All the key figures who abused their power here are either wrist-slapped and retired or still in place. Durham may be hoping for a break from someone on the outside to make a slam-dunk case against bigger fish.
It's worth noting that one of the potential big fish is Jake Sullivan, named in the indictment as Clinton's foreign policy advisor, and current National Security Advisor to Biden.
Let me be one of the first to stay that Sussman did not kill himself.
True the Vote investigation has evidence of ballot harvesting operations
It sounds like the folks at True The Vote are keeping this mostly under the radar, and have developed substantial evidence of criminal activity. Whether the FBI will do anything about it remains to be seen -- I don't expect them to -- but the evidence could be provided to (and arguably should have started with) local and state police forces. The FBI is compromised by DC politics, but the state agencies may not be.
I will be watching further developments here with interest.
Hospital closures already starting because of vaccine mandate
Democrats really do have trouble predicting the second and third order consequences of their stupid policy ideas. Mandate vaccines for everyone, especially people working in health care, to keep the hospitals operating rather than overflowing from COVID? Great! But now it's uh-oh they don't want the vaccines so much they their jobs in healthcare, and the hospitals have to shut down.
New "compromise" election bill is still a fraud-enabling takeover of elections
Schumer calls it a compromise, Manchin is involved, and McConnell is talking tough but doesn't have the votes to block it if Manchin is onboard and the filibuster is not in play. The legislation would require mail-in voting upon request (which, by itself, will enable massive fraud). This is simply a very slightly watered down takeover attempt and needs to be blocked. But can we block it and preserve honest elections run by the state legislatures?
The Dems are terrified that their fraud is going to be exposed, and this is their solution.
This is an effect distinct from the forensic audit report we are still waiting on. However, the results are still quite troubling, with some true horror stories of votes that went missing and dozens of votes from vacant lots or other invalid addresses. The only major flaw is that their headline numbers are based on extrapolation from a much smaller sample. I'll let statisticians argue over whether the extrapolation is sound or not. The results strongly suggest massive fraud was in play, more than enough by an order of magnitude to swing the election results.
Fulton County to name Abrams' linked lobbyist to election board
This is basically an open admission that the county wants maximum vote fraud. Abrams was already heavily involved behind the scenes in counting the votes in 2020, and now they want to put her in charge.
Not that Raffensperger's hands are clean either. He's in the "try to redeem my reputation with the base" phase.
Fauci's support for this dangerous research should disqualify him from any position of trust ever again. Hell, it probably should put him in jail, considering he was funding Chinese bioweapon research.
The claim that government wasn't involved in these cancel campaigns has been shattered. The Obama administration pioneered the efforts with Operation Chokepoint, which basically tried to get banks and the financial industry to "voluntarily" (under threat by their regulatory agencies) deny service to the gun industry. Now that's been expanded to deny access to social media and any speech or financial platform for, basically, everyone the left doesn't liked on whatever thinly veiled excuse they can come up with. If you're a CEO or a high level corporate officer, better not speak out or you will be hounded out of your job, or have your bank cancel your accounts, or whatever else they can come up with. And in many cases, there's a hidden hand of government applying pressure behind the scenes.
That should violate the 1st Amendment, but if it's kept secret, how would you ever know?
Texas passes law protecting free speech on social media
Somehow, that first paragraph was written without irony. "Free-Speech activists" oppose a law that prevents banning users based on their political opinions? The rest of the article is, if anything, worse -- conflating political opinions with obscenity and all the usual boogeymen.
Judge awards $200K in legal costs against Sidney Powell
Sometimes legal fees get awarded, usually when the case that was brought is considered to be not only a losing case but such a bad case that it must have been brought in bad faith. The amount seems large, but likely isn't exceptional. The real question is whether the case was actually meritless, or if the judge -- appointed by Obama -- is merely exercising poor judgement about a politically charged situation.
I agree with Bryne on this. I think it's a setup. I would avoid it. There's no reason to protest in DC about anything; no one there cares what you think. While I don't have any real evidence to say it's a deliberate setup and for all I know the organizers are honest... it just feels off.
Don't give the narrative engineers another Jan 6th event they can false-flag.
I suspect that the anti-gun crusaders just learned a painful lesson about how important the NRA is to gun rights. That is, not very, anymore. Our political power comes from our millions of motivated individuals, and the NRA ultimately does little more than point out problems. And frankly not very much of that, under Wayne lately.
Millions of gun owners have learned that large organizations and their leadership are susceptible to corruption. We've also learned to compensate for the failure by finding other sources of the information we need to make a difference.
Don't get me wrong, the NRA is an important organization, and it's currently threatened status is a shrewd political move by opponents. But the organization has been troubled for some time. We need to hope for the best -- a renewed, reinvigorated NRA -- while planning for the worst.
Dem/Clinton lawyer indicted by Durham for lying to FBI
For some background on what this might mean. I will add that this is, not surprisingly, an effective whitewash for the FBI itself. One agent gets charged for falsifying documents to the court (and only because he was stupid enough to alter them and get caught), everyone else in government gets off scott free while pointing the finger at the people outside of government who "misled" them.
Durham should get his claws into whoever he can, but we all know the FBI themselves are the people who abused their power and tampered with an election, then conducted a running series of coup attempts on the elected president. They should not get away with it, but it seems like they are going to.
