I’m Not Making This Up, You Know

She was obviously making it up as she went along …… and clearly demonstrating that she’s a Constitution denier.

Or does she think that 38 states would vote to repeal the 26th Amendment? Or amend Article 1, Section 2, which sets the minimum age for a Member of the House of Representatives at 25?

Signs and Portents?

A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible in the hours just before dawn on Election Day next week. This is the first Election Day total eclipse in the history of the United States.

According to the historian Josephus, Herod the Great died after an eclipse of the moon. That eclipse was visible in Jerusalem in the early morning hours a month before Passover in 4 BC.

During the 2014 elections, non-citizens were caught voting in Frederick County, Maryland, a county adjacent to Montgomery County where Brett Kimberlin lives and his not-for-profits are based. The TKPOTD for eight years ago today dealt with Kimberlin’s inattention to that election integrity issue.

VRUS_RoveIt’s been a week since the evidence of non-citizens voting in Frederick County, Maryland, surfaced. Justice Through Music Project, Velvet Revolutions US, Protect Our Elections all claim to be working for election integrity. So what have we heard from them about the possibility of bogus voters on the rolls?

[crickets]

VRUS and POE are continuing to flack a story about suing the FEC in order to save it from Karl Rove. However, they are unclear whether or not his having to face the music is a threat to be serenaded by OP-Critical, the JTMP house band fronted by the Dread Performer Kimberlin.

ProtectOurElection.org was one of the plaintiffs in Public Citizen, et al. v. Federal Election Commission, 14-CV-00148 (DDC). The case was filed in 2014 seeking to force the Federal Election Commission to reinstate a complaint against Crossroads GPS (Karl Rove’s Super PAC). The case ended in 2021 with summary judgment granted for the defendants. (Crossroads GPS had been added as an intervenor-defendant.) Kimberlin lost, keeping his 0.000 batting average intact.

Don’t Get Cocky, But …

… the scenario I suggested on 22 January, 2021, seems to be playing out as scripted.

I suspect that the Democrats will have a brief but spectacular run at messing up the economy or getting us into some nasty foreign entanglement. In a burst of overreach not unlike the passing of Obamacare (“We have to pass the bill in order to find out what’s in it.”), they will quickly find themselves in a-bridge-too-far land. It’s inevitable because they simply cannot follow the wisdom in Oscar Wilde’s bon mot: “One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.” They cheat even when they don’t have to.

The next couple of years are going to be brutal. The following two won’t be much better.

Earlier this year, I wrote this—

As the Democrats have been failing in most of their overreach for the last year-and-a-half and as the effects of the Xiden Administration’s incompetence compound, it’s becoming more likely that the Republicans will take control of at least one of the houses of Congress in the next election. If that happens, I don’t expect the Democrats to take their L and leave quietly. In that case, the last two months of 2022 will be very, very ugly.

It seems to me that the Democrats quickly realized that they would be turned out by the midterm elections. They’ve been willing to ruin the economy with facially corrupt legislation in order to transfer as much wealth as possible to themselves and their supporters. The “Inflation Reduction Act” was their big haul.

Abortion, racism, and January 6 are the issues the Democrats would like to campaign on, but it’s inflation, illegal immigration, energy, and education that the voters seem to care about. The Democrats and the public seem to be on opposite sides of those issues. Whether the election is a red ripple or a tsunami, control of Congress is likely to change.

But will things get better?

The next two years will be interesting.

Two of the interesting news stories from yesterday were Tulsi Gabbard’s departure from the Democrats and the testimony from an FBI Analyst in the Igor Danchenko trial that the agency offered offered Christopher Steele one million dollars if he could corroborate allegations in his infamous dossier but Steele could not do so..

Brett Kimberlin appears to be associated with the Ukrainian connected Democrats who were pushing the Russia Collusion Hoax, and he’s still flogging that dead horse. I found this at the Justice Through Music Project website last night—

L’etat c’est nous

New Class Traitor has a post over at Spin, Strangeness, and Charm about what Putin and the woke Brahmandarins have in common.

They are both looking to set up neo-feudal systems with themselves at the top, with a willing clerisy as enforcers looking to ‘cancel’ anyone who isn’t down with the program.

Both greatly benefit the feudal lieges at the top (cf. Orwell’s “Inner Party”), somewhat benefit those staffing the clerisy and enforcement apparatus (cf. Orwell’s Outer Party), and fornicate over the vast majority of their “Proles” — aside from this or that mascot group that is temporarily useful to their regimes.

And since neither is able to substantially and durably deliver the goods to the Proles (except the illusion thereof, in the alleged fashion of Prince Gregory Potemkin), the one thing both have to do to legitimize their rule is find some “fascist” or “Nazi” monster that they are supposedly fighting.

Read the whole thing.

Brexit, Trump, Orban, and Meloni, aren’t fascist-inspired or neofascists. They’re the result of what happens when the proles begin to understand how The System has been rigged. This November, the proles may not let the wokies win.

Law Enforcement Priorities

Item 1: A Texas sheriff will investigate DeSantis’ flight of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. Sheriff Javier Salazar of Bexar County (which includes San Antonio) has opened a criminal investigation into Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The sheriff said in a news release Monday that his office is investigating whether the migrants who were flown to Martha’s Vineyard were victims of crimes

Item 2: NY DA launches probe into fraud allegations over Zeldin nomination. The Albany County, New York, district attorney is reportedly moving forward with a probe into election-fraud allegations connected to the nomination of the Republican candidate for governor the same week absentee ballots are being sent out in the high-stakes race against Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul.

I’m reminded of a saying from another politicized policeman—

Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Brett Kimberlin’s Justice Through Music Project is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit. The image below is a screenshot from the jtmp dot org website. It was taken just after 10pm ET last night.

Just after I took that screenshot, I found this at irs dot gov

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity.  Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.

Certain activities or expenditures may not be prohibited depending on the facts and circumstances.  For example, certain voter education activities (including presenting public forums and publishing voter education guides) conducted in a non-partisan manner do not constitute prohibited political campaign activity. In addition, other activities intended to encourage people to participate in the electoral process, such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives, would not be prohibited political campaign activity if conducted in a non-partisan manner.

On the other hand, voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.

Who knows, it may be that by 2025 some of those 87,000 new IRS agents will have the training and experience necessary to perform audits of noncompliant 501(c)(3) organizations. And maybe in 2025 they’ll be working for someone who will “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed”.

BTW, the United States does not have an extradition treaty with Ukraine. I wonder how that might affect some peoples’ retirement plans.

Don’t Know Much Biology

An online survey conducted by WPA Intelligence last month found 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, “Some men can get pregnant.” 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats concurred.

Perhaps the fertility problems some “men” are having may be one of the sources of dissatisfaction some social and behavioral “science” graduates (especially, gender studies majors) feel about their degrees.Democracy Dies in Derpness™

I’m Watching Joe Xiden’s Speech

His lips are moving.

UPDATE—Is it proper for Xiden to be using those Marines as part of the backdrop for a purely political speech?UPDATE 2—The current Marine Corps GUIDANCE ON POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS AND ACTIVITY (MARADMINS Number: 662/19) states in paragraph 2.d.

Marine units may not provide limited logistical support to campaign events (e.g., color guard in uniform, musician in uniform singing the National Anthem, etc.).

Hmmmm.

No, Joe, They Won’t Need F-15s

Once again, Joe Xiden has threatened to use the regular forces of the U.S. military against citizens who might actively resist one or more of his unconstitutional or illegal acts. Speaking in Pennsylvania today, he called for a federal ban on so-called “assault weapons.” Of course, the Supreme Court has just reversed and remanded the appeals court decision upholding Maryland’s “assault weapons” ban, but that hasn’t dulled Xiden’s lust for unconstitutional federal legislation.

Xiden also said—

You can’t go out and buy an automatic weapon, you can’t go out and buy a cannon, and for those brave right wing Americans who say its all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country you need an F-15. You need something a little more than a gun.

There are so many false statements there. You can go out and buy and automatic weapon. It has to be one that’s in the current registry of such weapons (over 150,000 such weapons are registered), you have to pass a background check, and you have to pay for a $200 tax stamp, but you can buy one. It’s also legal to buy a cannon. The process is similar to buying a machine gun.

IIRC, the last time veteran’s took up arms against a government, it was a local government, and the trigger for that action was a stolen election. You can read about The Battle of Athens here.

And finally, Xiden might want to think about how ragtag group of peasants with small arms handled modern armies and air forces in Afghanistan during the last four decades.

A Significant Windfall

America’s newspaper of record reports that the average lifetime earnings of graduates who have earned a gender studies degree rose sharply to $10,000 this week. The report also notes—

[s]ome college graduates with gender studies degrees are actually hitting up to $20,000 if they received Pell grants, doubling the most common average of $10,000, and being more than $20,000 over the previous average of $0.

Meanwhile, in Florida’s 1st Congressional District

Maryland Peace Order process abuser Rebekah Jones has won the Democrat primary and will face incumbent Matt Gaetz in the general election. She carried about 62 % of the primary vote. Gaetz received about 69 % of the Republican votes.

Given that Gaetz/s share of the Republican tally (58,283) was over twice the total vote in Democrat primary (27,085), Jones shouldn’t have to worry about traveling back from Washington for her pending criminal cases in Tallahassee.
