The Fed Enabling Biden and Congress’ Destructive Agenda

Dr. Ron Paul
by Ron Paul: According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), 2021 will be the second year in a row in which the federal debt exceeds Gross Domestic Product (GDP). CBO also projected that this year’s federal deficit will be 2.3 trillion dollars, which is 900 billion dollars less than last year. However, CBO’s projections do not include the 1.9 trillion dollars “stimulus” bill Congress is likely to pass.

The CBO’s report was largely ignored by Congress and the media. One reason the report did not get the attention it deserves is Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s continued commitment to making sure Fed policies enable Congress to spend as much as Congress deems necessary to address the economic fallout from the coronavirus panic.

As financial analyst Peter Schiff points out, the Fed’s commitment to ensuring the government can run up massive debt means the Fed will not allow interest rates to increase to anywhere near what they would be in a free market. This is because increasing interest rates would cause the federal government’s debt payments to rise to unsustainable levels. Yet, the Fed cannot admit it is going to keep rates near, or even below, zero indefinitely without unsettling the markets. So, the Fed continues to promise interest rate hikes in the future and the markets pretend to believe the Fed. When (or if) the lockdowns end, the Fed will find a new crisis justifying “temporarily” keeping interest rates low.

The Federal Reserve has not just endorsed massive federal spending, Fed Chairman Powell has also endorsed masks, vaccines, and social distancing to defeat the coronavirus and restore the economy. It is disappointing, but not surprising, to see the Fed go full Fauci.

The overreaction to coronavirus is a cause of the explosion in federal spending and debt we have witnessed over the last year. However, federal spending already greatly increased from January 2017 until the lockdowns. This spending growth occurred under a Republican president, a Republican Senate, and, from 2017 to 2019, a Republican House. One bright spot in Democratic control of the presidency and both houses of Congress is more Republicans will fight excessive spending and claim to be “deficit hawks.”

Republican hypocrisy in claiming to care about spending and debt only when a Democrat sits in the Oval Office is one reason why Democrats can so easily disregard debt. Another reason is the left’s embrace of Modern Monetary Theory. Modern Monetary Theory is the latest version of the fairy tale that politicians need not worry about debt and deficits as long as the central bank can monetize the federal debt.

Unless the government changes course, America will experience a crisis greater than the Great Depression. The crisis will include a final rejection of the dollar’s world reserve currency status. There will also be much increased price inflation. At that point Congress will have no choice but to limit spending, although it will try to hide cuts in popular entitlement programs by “adjusting” government measures of inflation. Congress could then blame the Fed for the reduction in value of government benefits.

Those who know the truth have two responsibilities. First, ensure they and their families are protected when the crash comes. Second, redouble efforts to spread the ideas of liberty and grow the liberty movement so politicians are pressured to cut spending and debt and to end the Fed.

Too Many Deny the True Evils of Communism

by Dennis Prager: One of the most highly regarded books of the 20th century was Ernest Becker’s “The Denial of Death.” Winner of the 1974 Pulitzer Prize, the book is regarded as a classic for its analysis of how human beings deny their mortality.

But there is something people deny more than mortality: evil. Someone should write a book on the denial of evil; that would be much more important because while we cannot prevent death, we can prevent evil.

The most glaring example of the denial of evil is communism, an ideology that, within a period of only 60 years, created modern totalitarianism and deprived of human rights, tortured, starved, and killed more people than any other ideology in history.

Why people ignore, or even deny, communist evil is the subject of a previous column as well as a Prager University video, “Why Isn’t Communism as Hated as Nazism?” I will, therefore, not address that question here.

I will simply lay out the facts.

But before I do, I need to address another question: Why is it important that everyone know what communism did?

Here are three reasons:

First, we have a moral obligation to the victims not to forget them. Just as Americans have a moral obligation to remember the victims of American slavery, we have the same obligation to the billion victims of communism, especially the 100 million who were murdered.

Second, the best way to prevent an evil from reoccurring is to confront it in all its horror.

The fact that many people today, especially young people, believe communism is a viable—even morally superior—option for modern societies proves they know nothing about communism’s moral record. Therefore, they do not properly fear communism—which means this evil could happen again.

And why could it happen again?

That brings us to reason No. 3. The leaders of communist regimes and the vast number of people who helped those leaders torture, enslave, and murder—plus the many more people who reported on their neighbors for saying something objectionable to the communists—were nearly all normal people. Of course, some were psychopaths, but most were not. Which proves that any society—including free ones—can devolve into communism or some analogous evil.

Now some facts:

According to the authoritative “The Black Book of Communism,” written by six French scholars and published in the United States by Harvard University Press, the numbers of people murdered—not people killed in combat; ordinary civilians trying to live their lives—by communist regimes were:

— Latin America: 150,000.

— Vietnam: 1 million.

— Eastern Europe: 1 million.

— Ethiopia: 1.5 million.

— North Korea: 2 million.

— Cambodia: 2 million.

— The Soviet Union: 20 million (many scholars believe the number was considerably higher).

— China: 65 million.

These numbers are quite conservative. For example, in Ukraine alone, the Soviet regime and its Ukrainian Communist Party helpers starved 5 to 6 million to death within a two-year period. It is almost inconceivable that only 14 to 15 million other Soviet citizens were murdered.

And, of course, these numbers do not describe the suffering endured by hundreds of millions of people who were not murdered: the systematic stripping people of their right to speak freely, to worship, to start a business, or even to travel without party permission; no noncommunist judiciary or media; the near-poverty of nearly all communist countries; the imprisonment and torture of vast numbers of people; and, of course, the trauma suffered by the hundreds of millions of friends and relatives of the murdered and imprisoned.

These numbers don’t tell you about the many starving Ukrainians who ate the flesh of people, often children, sometimes including their own; or the Romanian Christians whose communist prison guards forced them to eat feces to compel them to renounce their faith; or the frozen millions in the vast Soviet Siberian prison camp system known as the Gulag Archipelago; or the Vietnamese communists’ routine practice of burying peasants alive to terrorize people into supporting the communists; or Mao Zedong’s regular use of torture to punish opponents and intimidate peasants, like leading men through the streets with rusty wires through their testicles and burning the vaginas of wives of opponents with flaming wicks—Mao’s techniques to terrorize peasants into supporting the Chinese Communist Party in its early days.

Sources for the above:

— Ukraine: Anne Applebaum, “Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine.”

— Romania: Eugen Magirescu, “The Devil’s Mill: Memories of Pitesti Prison.” (Cited in Paul Kengor’s “The Devil and Karl Marx: Communism’s Long March of Death, Deception, and Infiltration.”)

— Vietnam: Max Hastings, “Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy, 1945-1975.”

— China: Jung Chang and Jon Halliday, “Mao: The Unknown Story.”

I return to the theme of the denial of evil.

People associate evil with darkness. But that is not accurate: It is easy to look into the dark; it is very hard to stare into bright light. One should therefore associate evil with extreme brightness, given that people rarely look at real evil.

And those who do not confront real evil often make up evils (such as “systemic racism,” “toxic masculinity,” and “heteronormativity” in 21st-century America) that are much easier to confront.

The Book of Psalms states, “Those of you who love God—you are to hate evil.”

In other words, you can’t love God if you don’t hate evil.

And if you don’t believe in God, here’s another way of putting it: “Those of you who love people—you are to hate evil.”

If you don’t hate communism, you don’t care about, much less love, people.

Essential Republicans and Conservatives: This Isn’t an Ideological Debate - This Is a Political War

by Seton Motley: Democrats having secured complete control of DC, there has been a debate about whether or not – for at least the next two years – working even a little with Republicans and their allies is of any value.

The argument against being that since DC is so divided – only enlisting Democrats and their allies for your non-Democrat causes can persuade the Democrats in power.

Except every ounce of evidence Democrats have thus far presented? Demonstrates moving mountains miles – is easier than moving these Democrats even an inch.Joe Biden Sets Record for Executive Orders

More Democrats Join the Effort to Kill the Filibuster

House Passes Massive COVID Bill with Zero GOP Votes

Senate Passes $1.9 Trillion Covid Relief Bill Without a Single Republican Vote

Gaslighting Biden White House Calls COVID Bill with Zero GOP Support ‘Bipartisan’
So you need Democrats, right? Except: Democrats who oppose any part of the radical, insane Democrat agenda even a little – get the full-on cancel culture treatment.Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema Are the Thorns in Democrats’ Side:

“But there’s a way for Chuck Schumer and Kamala Harris to neutralize the two heterodox senators.”

Progressive PAC Kick-Starts Search for Challengers to Manchin, Sinema
All of which yet again demonstrates what we have already been saying for many, many years. We are not engaged in an ideological debate – we are engaged in a political war.

Persuasion of these Democrats is a pipe dream. Any outside Democrats you engage to object to Democrat obnoxiousness? Will be just as warmly received, listened-to and treated – as inside Democrats Sinema and Manchin.

Opposition is the only way. Republicans and conservatives aren’t irrelevant – they’re essential. You absolutely need them for inside leadership – and outside service as rank-and-file foot soldiers.

Because this isn’t an ideological debate. This is a political war.

As we know – personnel is policy. There is nothing about Biden, Inc’s many personnel decisions – that speak to anything except insane extremism.Joe Biden’s Cabinet Is Dangerous for America

Six of Biden’s Top Cabinet Picks Belong to Radical Soros-Linked Organizations

Biden’s Radical Cabinet Picks Signal a Full On Culture War

Biden’s Cabinet Picks Signal Return of Obama’s ‘Disastrous’ Foreign Policy
And when Biden’s picks are too radical for even the Democrat-controlled Senate? He just bypasses the Democrat-controlled Senate.Conservatives Sink Neera’s Nomination

Biden Pulls Neera Tanden Nomination:

“Biden said in a statement: ‘I have the utmost respect for her record of accomplishment, her experience and her counsel, and I look forward to having her serve in a role in my Administration.’”
Biden will just foist her upon us in a way no one can block. How very executive order of him.

Speaking of personnel-is-policy – and too-radical-even-for-the-Democrat-Senate?Tim Wu, the ‘Father of Net Neutrality,’ Is Joining the Biden Administration:

“Tim Wu – the Columbia law professor who coined the term ‘net neutrality’ – is joining the Biden administration, where he’ll be working on technology and competition policy at the National Economic Council.”
Wu’s gig – requires not Senate confirmation. Because Biden, Inc – wishes not to discuss Wu’s radicalism.

Because things like this might come up.New Study Shows Folly of Net Neutrality Regulations Around the Globe:

“Researchers from the Vienna University of Economics and Business examined net neutrality policies in 32 of the 37 countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OCED), finding a negative correlation between regulations and internet expansion.

“The study found that only two countries (Australia and New Zealand) had not implemented net neutrality regulations and both experienced better outcomes in internet development than the other 30….

“The researchers noted that uncertainty in political regimes – the various flip-flopping on policy based on whether the left or right is in power – harms private investment.”
Speaking of awful-and-stupid Net Neutrality, damaging-and-wild policy vacillations – and Senate confirmables….What Biden’s Acting FCC Chair Says About His Vision for the Agency:

“President Biden has named Jessica Rosenworcel as the acting chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Rosenworcel, a two-term commissioner…has championed…restoring net neutrality….

“She’ll head up a divided FCC with two Democrats and two Trump-loyalist Republicans — at least until whoever Biden picks to be the third Democratic commissioner is confirmed….

“(W)ith a Democratic majority in the Senate, it’s more likely than ever that the president will be able to appoint a third Democratic member to pass some of those measures….

“(I)n the months and years to come, the FCC is likely to reverse some of those (Donald Trump-FCC) policies, especially (the) most controversial decision: repealing net neutrality….

“Under Chairman Tom Wheeler, the (Barack) Obama FCC had classified broadband internet as a Title II service, subjecting it to increased oversight….”
Biden’s choice for the third Democrat FCC Commissioner – must be confirmed by the Senate. No way around it.

You can ask outside Democrats to try to talk inside Democrats out of confirming a radical Net Neutrality-supporting FCC appointee.

Which as we have already incessantly seen – will carry zero weight whatsoever. And get the Democrats doing the asking – the Sinema-Manchin cancellation treatment.

Or you can rely on Republicans and conservatives. Who nixed Neera Tanden from Senate confirmation. And….Republican Senators May Block Biden’s Cabinet Nominees Just Because They Can

Cruz Suggests Senate Republicans Will Block Biden’s Cabinet Nominees Indefinitely

Biden Nominees Becerra, Gupta Targeted by Conservative Groups with High-Dollar Ad Campaign

GOP Senators Urge Biden to Drop Progressive HHS Nominee Becerra

Republicans Use Biden Climate Czar Gina McCarthy as Ammo Against other Enviro Nominees:

“Gina McCarthy didn’t need Senate confirmation for her new role as the first White House National Climate Adviser but she emerged Wednesday as a stumbling block for President Biden’s other nominees for top environmental jobs.”

Conservatives Urge Senate Republicans to Oppose Merrick Garland Confirmation
If you want to stop Net Neutrality – you must stop any-and-all Biden pro-Net Neutrality FCC picks.

And to do that – you must use Republicans and conservatives.

This isn’t about persuasion. Because these Democrats remain stridently unpersuadable. This isn’t an ideological debate.

This is about opposition. You can’t negotiate with these Democrats – so you must stop them. Because this is a political war.

The Unholy Alliance of Big Business Billionaires and the Democratic Party

Destroying tax-paying middle class Americans.
by William Sullivan: Ten years ago, Democrats were insisting that wealthy business tycoons and Wall Street fat cats who didn’t “pay their fair share” were the single greatest threat to America. “We are the 99 percent!” was soon to become the battle cry of millions of Obama voters who believed that big businesses were preying upon everyday Americans, and that they were too influential in shaping politics.

Last year, those same multi-billion-dollar corporations and their fat cat leadership were vital allies of the Democrats, central players in a “well-funded cabal” that was “working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change the rules and laws, steer media coverage and the flow of information” so that the Democratic nominee would win the election. Those aren’t the words of a right-wing conspiracy theorist, as you may know, but the words of TIME magazine detailingThe Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.”

What changed in those ten years? When did the Democrats go from loathing big corporations to loving them, and when did big corporations go from being loathed by Democrats to carrying their water and undermining the political will of everyday Americans to curry their favor? After all, if it were the will of everyday Americans to elect a Democratic president in 2020, why would a “well-funded cabal” be needed to “change the rules and laws” or manipulate the “flow of information” to achieve that outcome?

I remember the precise moment where it had become obvious that Obama was betraying his constituents on this issue. Barack Obama, tasked with tearing down the structural power of big business billionaires, spent 2011 demonizing Bank of America and its leadership for their greedy practices, like charging customers a monthly fee for debit card usage. As you can imagine, Bank of America executives were shocked by Obama’s “audacity” to invite them to help finance the 2012 Democratic National Convention. To entice the bank’s executives, Democrats even moved the president’s acceptance speech to Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, where they courted wealthy donors and sold them million-dollar skyboxes that allowed them to sit high above the masses below that hated their guts because the president had whipped them into a jealous frenzy.

Obama spent his days winking at Occupy Wall Street protestors, and his nights undermining them entirely by ensuring that big corporate lobbyists would have a seat at the Democratic policymaking table. And it seems to have worked, because in 2016 and 2020, big money donors, particularly in the securities and investment industry, provided financial support to the Democratic presidential candidates that dwarfed the big money donors’ contributions to Donald Trump.

One can only imagine the furor about how dark corporate money was influencing the outcome of the election if the contributions in those years were so decidedly in Trump’s favor, but since they weren’t, Democrats haven’t seemed to notice. But one might think that they should have, because Democrats’ historic distaste for these globo-corporate profiteers, who are currently financing Democratic political victories to advance their own self-interests, is ostensibly rooted in something fundamental to the Party’s professed nature, and that is the protection of American workers.

But the Democrats’ labor priorities saw a marked change in recent years from their labor union roots. No longer were they seeking wage protections for the employees of XYZ Widgets in Lansing, or to protect the workers of entire American industries. No, they began arguing that it is a human rights imperative to allow any foreigners, and particularly those from impoverished nations, to enter America illegally, and thus illegally compete for and undercut the wages of American workers.

This benefits illegal aliens, the big businesses who reap excess profits on illegal labor, and Democrats who are importing new voters. But, lucky enough for Democrats, their constituents seem to have forgotten altogether that they were once in favor of protecting the wages of American workers and taxpayers, who unquestionably suffer due to illegal immigration.

This symbiotic arrangement between big business and the Democratic Party is parasitic and destructive to the unwilling host that is the American citizenry, and not only in a financial sense. Giant, multi-national corporations are now the leading spokespersons for Democrats’ social initiatives and policy propositions. It’s incredibly likely that the first multi-national corporation that comes to your mind is one of countless that have entered a coalition of businesses supporting of the Equality Act, a radical proposition that is laden with vague language that is incredibly susceptible to broad abuses by politicians with power, and which will utterly destroy religious liberty in America.

With the Equality Act, the federal government is now seeking the broad authority to demand that a confused young boy must be allowed to shower with your sixteen-year-old daughter after volleyball practice, or that nuns must finance abortions. Global corporations, headed by multi-billionaires who have profited tremendously by undermining American voters and workers, have signed on in droves to support this broad, seemingly illimitable assault on individual liberty.

What unites the Democratic Party today isn’t the protection of blue-collar workers, as it once was, but the coddling of former college students who incurred large debts to get their socialist indoctrination, and who want their neighbor, the plumber, to pay those debts for them. Big business profits and lobbying are no longer a problem, of course, now that the profits are being used to benefit the Democratic Party and its platform exclusively. Big-tent concepts like tolerance and liberty are out of fashion, replaced by demands for coerced acceptance of countless provable and evil untruths, such as the notion that white people are inherently arrogant and ignorant, or that a boy is no different than a girl, or that to be an American citizen means nothing more meaningful than managing to get your feet on American soil.

And Democratic Party simply no longer seems to care about the obvious and objective madness in any of that.

The Democrats’ villains today are no longer rich business tycoons who don’t “pay their fair share” while exercising their power and influence to undermine American workers and strangle individual liberty. Today, it’s only too clear that the villains they seek to destroy are the very same taxpaying, middle-class Americans that they claim to have been championing.

Transgenderism

by Kerby Anderson: Last year, Amazon began removing books the gatekeepers felt took the wrong side of the ongoing LGBTQ debate. Some of them weren’t the sort of books most small bookstores would deem to have on their shelves because of their mean-spirited tone.

Then came Abigail Shrier’s book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters. When I interviewed her on the book three months ago, we talked about some of the negative controversy that resulted in Target pulling the book off the shelves. But you could still buy the book on Amazon.

That is no longer the case with Dr. Ryan Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment. Amazon pulled the book, even though the book was released three years ago. Why now? Some speculate that it was an inconvenient reminder of the dangers posed if Congress passed the Equality Act.

If you read the book, you will find an accurate presentation of scientific, medical, and legal debates about transgenderism. Anderson currently serves as the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center. It would be hard to describe him as a bomb-throwing radical, though he obviously has a viewpoint that comports with a biblical view of marriage and family.

Critics of Amazon usually focus on its size and market share. There’s another problem: its opacity. We still do not know who decided to ban the book or why the Amazon gatekeepers even felt the need to ban the book.

Removing books from Amazon has larger implications. First, it also removes them from Amazon subsidiaries like Kindle, Audible, and Abe Books. Second, it sends a signal to other bookstores not to carry the book.

Here’s the issue. Censorship makes it easy to maintain that there is only one side to an argument, when one of the sides is no longer given a forum.

Election Reform, An Alternative To HR-1

Memorandum for: We The People. Subject: A Line in the Sand!
Marvin L. Covault, Lt. Gen, Ret.
by Marvin L. Covault, Lt Gen US Army, retired: BACKGROUND: H.R. 1, FOR THE PEOPLE ACT OF 2021 recently passed by the House of Representatives is a complete disaster waiting to happen. It certainly is not an act that is “for the People”; it is a bill specially designed to prescribe, from the federal level, implementation of the worst of the states’ 2020 election rules, procedures, and results.

INTENT:
My intent is to present an alternative to the entire concept laid out in this 800-page monstrosity. Why an alternative?

Many agree that passage of HR1 strikes such a serious blow to one of our most sacred rights, free and honest elections, that it threatens the very existence of our Constitutional Republic. Democrats will say that is a gross overstatement by a bunch of Trump supporters. My response to them would be, are you willing to take that chance? Once the foundation of the Republic is breached, it is unlikely we can revive it to its original form and intent.

SUMMARY OF SOME OF THE PROVISIONS OF HR1:
  • Automatic voter registration, same-day registration, and online voter registration; whereby election officials would have insufficient time to verify the accuracy of either voter information or eligibility.
  • State Voter Registration Rolls: HR1 would require states to automatically register all individuals (as opposed to “citizens”) from an array of state and federal databases.
  • It would ban witness signature or notarization requirements for absentee ballots.
  • Restricts states from banning mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting.
  • Prevents election officials from checking the eligibility and qualifications of voters and removing ineligible voters.
  • Ban state voter ID laws by forcing states to allow individuals to vote without an ID.
  • Requires states to restore the eligibility of felons to vote.
  • Limits access to federal courts for anyone challenging HR1.
  • There is more in those 800 pages in HR1 but that gives you a sense of the greatly enhanced opportunities for voter fraud. It is not election reform.
STATES’ RIGHTS: It is important to remember that States’ Rights are a foundational element of our Republic. HR1 places every meaningful element of the election process in the hands of the federal government. While States’ Rights are important, we also have to consider that many of the states got a “D” or an “F” in November 2020 preceding the election. We need to find some meaningful middle ground between Federal and State oversight of the election process.

THE ALTERNATIVE: Here is the beginning of a solution: Large organizations (for purposes of this discussion, look at national election players as a “large organization”) have a greater chance for success if they do two things:

One is to have in-place an over-arching operational precept of Maximum Centralized Planning, Maximum Decentralized Execution.

Secondly, operate from an established set of standards; an organization without standards is a failed organization.

From the “maximum centralized planning” aspect, Congress should pass into law the following standards that must be adhered to by every state.

ELECTION STANDARDS:
  • Information from a Voter ID Card will be the sole source of data for Stare Voter Registration rolls.
  • The primary method of voting in all national elections is in-person voting. The only alternative is individually requested absentee ballots.
  • Eligibility to vote is granted to every U.S. citizen eighteen years of age or older.
  • No one can vote unless they are in possession of a State-issued Voter ID Card.
  • The ballot for those persons running for president and vice president of the United States will be printed as a stand-alone ballot.
  • Each presidential/vice-presidential ballot will be both hand-counted and “read” by a voting machine.
  • States will scrupulously provide for multiple-person teams charged with the responsibility of establishing a clear and rapid (minutes, not hours) chain-of-custody for every presidential ballot. An example set of procedural rules are provided herein.
  • National elections will be held beginning on the first Saturday in November with hours of operation as follows: Saturday, 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. Sunday, 12-noon through 7 p.m. Monday, a national election-day holiday with minimum-essential personal working across the country, 7 a.m. through 7 p.m.
  • Election results will be released Tuesday after the Monday Election Holiday 12 hours after the polls close, beginning with 7 a.m. eastern standard time.
  • For those unable to travel to a DMV, states will provide for submission of a notarized application along with a photo and required documentation to a DMV to receive a Voter ID Card.
COMMENT ON VOTING DAYS: In accordance with the Constitution, Congress shall prescribe the day(s) for national elections. Since 1846 that date has been the first Tuesday in November. Our citizens are notoriously apathetic when it comes to voting with the turnout normally around 60% of eligible voters going to the polls. In the 2020 election, a record number of Americans voted but still, an estimated 80 million did not. Having the election take place on a single mid-week, working-day is just plain stupid. Long voting lines and the inability to get off work limits the number of voters.

DEFINING THE PROBLEMS: If I was tasked to write the rules and regulations at either the federal or state level to solve the following six fraud issues, it would probably be hundreds of pages long and ultimately relatively ineffective. But, a Voter ID Card in use by every eligible voter will PREVENT ALL OF THESE POTENTIAL FRAUDULENT PRACTICES.

ONE, VOTER REGISTRATION ROLLS: Across America, the states’ voter registration rolls are terribly maintained, highly inaccurate, and provide multiple opportunities for fraudulent activities. For example, Judicial Watch won a federal lawsuit requiring Los Angeles county to remove an estimated 1.5 million ineligible voters from its rolls. The Voter ID Card system will solve those problems and be self-policing.

Every state will retool its Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to also produce Voter ID Cards. They will produce three products; a driver’s license for the new driver who is too young to vote, a stand-alone Voter ID Card for any eligible voter who cannot drive, and a combination driver's license/voter ID.

Think of the Voter ID Card as a picture ID (like your driver’s license) with a “swipe” capability (like your credit card) that will display on a screen all of the voter’s personal data, as well as the dates the Voter ID Card, has been “used” during the current election cycle. The intent of the Voter ID Card Law is to positively identify a voter at a voting site with a current photo, a valid state Voter ID number, current address, and a history of voter activity. Everyone who desires to vote must have a Voter ID Card in order to perform in-person voting or to apply for an absentee ballot.

Every DMV-issued card will have a 5-year expiration date.

All cards issued by state DMV will contain a photo, full name, date of birth, address, sex, eye color, height, hair color, 5-year expiration date, and, most importantly, an individual driver’s license number and a Voter ID number. Voter ID numbers will be a 10-digit number beginning with the two-letter state abbreviation such as TX-456-789-3322.

In order to obtain a Voter ID Card, you must be 18 years of age and present, as a minimum, a birth certificate or naturalization papers, a valid Social Security Card, and two documents with a current physical address proving state’s residency.

The State DMV will immediately provide the State Election Headquarters with all Voter ID Card data. This will become the sole source for State Voter Registration Rolls. Upon the expiration date, that person’s name and data will automatically fall off the Registration Rolls and return to the rolls when the card is renewed. This routine will ensure the State Registration Rolls remain current at all times, are correct, and are self-policing. Under this Voter ID Card system, there will no longer be dead people voting.

TWO, BALLOT STUFFING: Casting illegal votes or submitting more than one ballot per voter. That cannot be done with this system because every ballot must have a Voter ID number on it and that number can only be used once during an election cycle.

THREE, VOTER IMPERSONATION: A person claims to be someone else when casting a vote. Every voter must produce a picture-Voter ID Card before they can get a ballot.

FOUR, VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD: Filling out and submitting a voter registration card for a fictional person, or filling out a voter registration card with the name of a real person but without that person's consent and forging his or her signature on the card. Voter ID Cards prevent this from ever happening.

FIVE, FRAUD BY ELECTION OFFICIALS: Manipulation of ballots by officials administering the election, such as tossing out ballots or casting ballots in voters' names. Every ballot will contain an individual’s Voter ID Card number that can only be used one time during a voting cycle.

SIX, ABSENTEE BALLOT VOTE FRAUD: A person attempts to fill out and turn in an absentee ballot containing false information. The Voter ID Card will not allow this because an absentee ballot application must contain a valid Voter ID Card number. The only way absentee ballot fraud can exist is if a registered voter has their Voter ID Card stolen; an insignificant number.

ACHIEVING FEDERALLY MANDATED CHAIN-OF-CUSTODY STANDARDS: From the above list of election standards, “States will scrupulously provide for multiple-person teams charged with the responsibility of establishing a clear and rapid (minutes, not hours) chain-of-custody for every presidential ballot.

Personnel working the in-person voting sites will be organized as follows. All of the work will be accomplished by teams. Each team will consist of a person affiliated with each of the major political parties plus an observer.

The executive team will oversee all operations from opening through 7 p.m. each voting day and ensure that every procedure prescribed in the federal law is being adhered to.

The counting teams will manually count all in-person and absentee presidential/vice presidential ballots.

The accounting team will verify the count of each box of counted ballots, secure the ballot storage room and maintain the total presidential vote count.

The sequence of voting events:
  • When a voter presents their Voter ID Card at the voting site, the voter administrative assistant will swipe the Voter ID Card and ascertain if that particular Voter ID Card number has already been used during the current election period. If not, the assistant will print out an individual ballot that has the voter’s full name, address, and Voter ID Card number printed on the ballot. In the presence of the voting assistant, the voter will sign the ballot acknowledging that the data is correct. That signature must match the one on the ID Card.
  • Each voter will receive a ballot consisting of two pieces of paper. Page one contains only the names of the president/vice-presidential candidates and, if appropriate, a national referendum issue. The second paper is for all state and local candidates.
  • The voter completes filling out the two-page ballot and presents the ballots to the person operating the electronic tabulating machine. Both paper ballots are entered into the machine; any subsequent ballots presented with that Voter ID number will be automatically rejected.
  • The tabulating machine is the primary method of counting votes for the state/local candidates. The primary counting method for the president/vice president ballot is hand-counting. The tabulating machine becomes a back-up count in the event of a catastrophic loss of paper ballots by fire, flood, theft, etc.
  • The presidential paper ballot will be retrieved from the tabulating machine and presented to the counting team. The counting team will consist of two people of differing political party affiliation plus a counting monitor. The counting team process will proceed as follows:
  • Number the ballot in the upper right-hand corner. if, for example, the ballot storage boxes hold 200 ballots, the numbering will continue from #1 through # 200.
  • Each counter and the monitor will initial under the page number of every ballot and record the date and time, thereby establishing chain-of-custody during the counting process. Each counter will be associated with a particular candidate throughout the counting process and will keep a tally of the ballots for their candidate.
  • After each 100 counted ballots the counters and the monitor will confirm that the combined tallies account for 100, 200, etc. for example, 53 for candidate “a” and 47 for candidate “b”; 97 for candidate “a” and 103 for candidate “b”, etc., if the tallies do not total an even century number, the ballots, will be immediately recounted.
  • The counting process is simple and quick; number the ballot, initial the ballot, record the date and time and enter the winning candidate on a counter-team tally sheet. All that can be completed in 10-15 seconds. Therefore, one counting team can process ballots from many voting booths and never jeopardize the security of the ballots.
  • Upon completion of counting the ballots to fill a storage box, the accounting team will be called in. They will perform five chain-of-custody functions.
One: Instruct the counters to sign and record the date and time on their individual tally sheets and place them inside the storage box with the numbered ballots.

Two: Seal the ballot box with permanent adhesive tape.

Three: Place a permanent-adhesive ballot box accounting sheet onto the outside of the box. All members of the counting and accounting teams for that box will sign the sheet indicating also the date and time. The box will be numbered and the total votes for each candidate will be entered on that exterior box accounting sheet.

Four: The box number and its associated votes for each candidate will be entered onto the accounting team’s official presidential vote tally document.

Five: The box will be immediately moved to a secured storage room and logged in with the accounting team's signatures and date and time. That room must be off-limits to all except the executive and accounting team members. At no time can a single individual from any team enter the storage room alone or with an individual of the same political affiliation.

If for some precise reason, a box must be removed from secure storage, it must be done so by an executive team and they must maintain chain-of-custody until they log the box back into secure storage.

This same process will be used for counting absentee ballots.

ARE THE VOTING MACHINES WORKING? How do we know? Every morning run a ballot with a fake ID Card number through the system; did it reject it? Send a valid ID Card numbered ballot through twice; did it reject the second one? At the end of each voting day in every precinct, the Executive Team can run a tally of the votes from the presidential/vice-presidential ballot as recorded by the voting machines. Then compare the machine-tally with the hand-count tally as recorded by the Counting and Accounting Teams. If they do not match, go full-stop immediately and fix the problem.

CONCLUSIONS:
One:
This nation desperately needs election reform.

Two: HR1 is not reform in any sense of the word. It is a classic Washington partisan political piece of crap.

Three: Voter ID Cards are easy, safe, reliable, and as close to tamper-proof as we can get.

Four: States have proven that they cannot assure We The People that they can produce a fair election process. Therefore, we must have some “maximum centralized planning” in order for the “maximum decentralized execution” to function properly.

Five: An organization without standards is a failed organization. The federal government must set the standards for national elections. Go back and review the ten standards above.

Six: We don’t need 800 pages of congressional crap to “solve” our election problems. We can/must do it with an 8-page (or less) document produced from the above 2900 words.

Seven: The federal government passed a law that becomes effective 1 October 2021 requiring any person at least 18 years old to have a “Real ID” in order to get on a commercial airliner. The requirements for a Real ID are the same as those specified above for a Voter ID Card, proof of citizenship, social security card, etc. Have we heard the Democrat Party cry foul? Are democrats uniformly against Real IDs? No. Then why are they so outspoken and firmly against any requirement for a voter to present an ID?

BOTTOM LINE: This is a Line in the Sand for this great country. There is a crisis of confidence across America over many states’ election standards or the lack thereof. It’s time to get mad as hell at the mental midgets in Washington and do something. Now! H.R. 1, FOR THE PEOPLE ACT OF 2021 has already passed the House. S 1, THE FOR THE PEOPLE ACT OF 2021, is under consideration in the Senate. If you agree with this alternative to election reform, please do two things immediately. Forward this to your email list of friends and family. Secondly, contact the members of your Congressional Delegation.

By the way, I was recently introduced to an easy way to contact my reps in Washington. There is a smartphone app called KwikLetter (see below) which streamlines the task of writing and mailing a letter that will actually reach the office of any/all elected representative(s) in your home district. While it is unlikely your elected officials will personally read your letter, in all probability their staff will catalog your opinion on the matter addressed.

Cuomo Cooked His Own Goose

The trials and tribulations of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
by Bill Donohue: Gov. Cuomo is finished, and everyone knows it. The investigative reports on the nursing home scandal, along with a probe of accusations of sexual harassment, will detail his deadly decisions and his sexual misconduct. If he were prudent, he would resign. But his unremitting arrogance will not allow him to do so.

Regarding the latter charges, it is now clear that Cuomo’s campaign for a new law on sexual harassment in the workplace backfired. Indeed, he cooked his own goose.

Cuomo started 2019 bragging how New York will enact legislation on sexual harassment that will be the strongest in the nation. In mid-February, when the first public hearings were held, he said, “I am very proud that New York is the most aggressive state in the country on women’s rights. Anything I can do on sexual harassment we will do.”

One month later, after championing what he said was the gold standard on sexual harassment legislation, Cuomo was asked by Karen DeWitt, a reporter for NPR, about a recent high-ranking official in his administration who had to resign amid a sexual harassment probe. That set Cuomo off.

According to one news story, “Cuomo got extremely testy.” Another report said he “scolded” DeWitt. Her crime? She asked what he was going to do different about this problem in his state government. “When you say it’s state government,” the governor said, “you do a disservice to women, with all due respect, even though you are a woman. It’s not government; it’s society.”

In June, state lawmakers passed the new law. Cuomo was delighted that the bar was set very low. “We will make it easier for claims to be brought forward and send a strong message that when it comes to sexual harassment in the workplace, time is up.” The New York Times weighed in, saying, “The legislation eliminates the state’s ‘severe or pervasive’ standard for proving harassment, which advocates said had allowed judges to dismiss claims of inappropriate comments or even groping as insufficiently hostile.”

Cuomo signed the legislation in August. When it went into effect in October, he said something that came back to haunt him. “The ongoing culture of sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable and has held employees back for far too long. This critical measure finally ends the absurd legal standard for victims to prove sexual harassment in the workplace and makes it easier for those who have been subjected to this disgusting behavior to bring claims forward.”

As it turns out, five women have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment, and one of them, Lindsey Boylan, specifically accused him of creating “a culture within his own administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected.” Isn’t that what Cuomo explicitly said was “unacceptable”?

Cuomo said at a press conference on March 3rd, “I never touched anyone inappropriately. I never touched anyone inappropriately.”

This is contradicted by four of his accusers. Boylan says Cuomo kissed her on the lips without her consent and touched her lower back, arms and legs. Anna Ruch (unlike the others she did not work for Cuomo) said he put his hands on her lower back and cheeks and asked to kiss her. Karen Hinton said that after he embraced her, she tried to pull away, but he pulled her back. Ana Liss says he touched her lower back and kissed her hand, calling her “sweetheart.”

Only Charlotte Bennett has not accused Cuomo of “inappropriate touching.” However, she said he asked her about her sex life, and whether she ever slept with older men, making her feel uncomfortable. “I thought he was trying to sleep with me,” Bennett told Norah O’Donnell in a CBS interview. As the New York Times noted about Cuomo’s new law, offenses include “inappropriate comments.”

Now it can be argued that some of these offenses are more infractions than they are serious cases of sexual misconduct. However, when he was giving the green light to lawyers wanting to pursue old cases of alleged clergy sexual abuse, Cuomo knew that many of the accusations involved “inappropriate touching.” So why should we give him a break now?

No one is saying Cuomo is guilty of doing what President Bill Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky. But according to his own relaxed standard of what constitutes sexual harassment in the workplace, he is guilty as sin.

Now Safe to Blame?

by Paul Jacob: Is it safe yet for big media to tell the truth about China’s virus?

“Beijing’s efforts from the very start of the crisis to hide information, silence whistleblowers, put out false data and thwart any real outside investigation are too extensive to fully recount,” Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin wrote over the weekend, pointedly adding, “the Chinese government’s actions were both reckless and deliberate.”

Leading to many more — the official tally being 2.6 million souls worldwide. So far.

Yes, the Chinese Communist Party leaders are actually “bad folks.”

Last year, though, the media treated candidate Trump’s attacks on China as just so much posturing and blame-shifting. The Post, for example complained of “too much political heat” regarding the pandemic — “some generated by China” and “some by Donald Trump in his attempt to distract attention from his catastrophic pandemic response as president.”

A month ago, a World Health Organization team traveled to China to finally look for the source of the contagion. “International experts investigating the origins of Covid-19,” the BBC reported at the time, “have all but dismissed a theory that the virus came from a laboratory in China.”

It turns out, as the Post explained, “the team lacked the training and forensic skills required to investigate this possibility” and “were under strong pressure from China to steer clear of the subject altogether.” The editorial urged the WHO to renew their investigation and “forcefully insist that China not stand in its way.”

“Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 shattered a fragile understanding between Washington and Beijing,” Rogin had informed readers at the outset of his essay, “and put the most important relationship of the 21st century in the hands of a novice.”

I call that a reprieve.

But the fact that our current prez is an old political pro?

Worrisome.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

* There is “no going back to the stance that the Obama administration had taken toward China in 2016,” Rogin argued, “when . . . most uncomfortable issues were swept under the rug.”

It will take Years to Recover the 8 Million Jobs still lost to Covid and State Lockdowns

The latest unemployment figures from states shows that eleven states engaged in the most draconian economic shutdowns all have significantly higher unemployment rates than the national average.
by Rick Manning: The last month of President Trump’s economic miracle was February 2020 before Covid struck the U.S. economy. The March 5 release of employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for February 2021, provides a snapshot of where America’s economic recovery stands compared to the beyond full employment America that existed before the China Virus resulting in more than half a million deaths and economic devastation.

Today’s unemployment rate is 6.2 percent compared to 3.5 percent a year ago with approximately 4.2 million more people unemployed today than a year ago.

Unemployment has disproportionately impacted teenagers (13.9 percent), and adults with a high school degree (7.2 percent), or who did not finish high school (10.1 percent), who have witnessed an almost doubling of their unemployment rate in the past year.

Those who have a college degree have also seen their unemployment rate double from 1.9 percent a year ago to 3.8 percent.

Overall, the number of unemployed has dipped below 10 million for the first time since the full economic impact of the virus was measured in April 2020, when the unemployment rate was 14.7 percent with more than 23 million unemployed.

Other key measures show that the labor force has shrunk by more than 4.2 million and the labor participation rate is approximately 2 percent down from a year ago. Some of this could be due to the aging of America and many seniors choosing to leave the labor force as a result of the virus, but there is clearly room for growth in the participation number.

The good news is that the economic rebound has resulted in 16.8 million people returning to work since April 2020 out of the 25 million jobs that were lost in the pandemic, with some states like South Dakota showing an unemployment rate below where it was in February of 2020.

But at 100,000 to 200,000 new jobs a month, it will take years to recover the 8 million jobs still lost to Covid.

The latest unemployment figures from states (December 2020) shows that eleven states engaged in the most draconian economic shutdowns all have significantly higher unemployment rates than the national average. These states all have Democrat Governors who figure to benefit the most from the currently being considered Covid package billed as economic stimulus.

Rather than spending another $1.9 trillion that America does not have on boosting long-term unemployment benefits, instead, they should just demand that these states open their economies and allow their citizens to enjoy in the economic recovery. -------------------------

Let’s Be Clear: ‘For the People Act’ Would Benefit Leftist Politicians, Not the People

by Rep. Brian Babin: Almost a year after its initial passage, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has once again passed HR 1, the For the People Act. However, there’s one major difference this year—this misleadingly named bill is no longer dead on arrival in a Republican Senate or White House.

Now that leftists hold the reins of power, Democrat leadership has doubled down on this anti-democratic bill, aiming to use its razor-thin majority in Congress to establish permanent and unopposed domination of our national elections.

HR 1, a bill whose number indicates the highest level of priority for Democrats, does nothing to address the numerous crises we’re facing. It is silent on the ongoing pandemic, the millions of Americans still unemployed, our unstable and unsecured southern border, and the multitude of children suffering at home because they’re not in school.

Instead, HR 1 is packed full of mandates to guarantee Democrats control future elections—all under the guise of “election reform.”

In reality, this bill undermines protections for free speech, destroys the nonpartisan Federal Election Commission, and nationalizes elections, paying no mind to the Constitution or the 10th Amendment. It would require states to automatically register voters, make it harder to verify voter information, and expand mail-in voting without safeguards in place to catch fraud.

In fact, HR 1 would silence all discussion about election fraud, voting irregularities, and the countless issues that left half of the country so dissatisfied with the execution and results of the 2020 election.

With all of this on the table, and absolutely no bipartisan input, can anyone honestly say that the goal of this bill is to actually benefit the people rather than politicians?

We need commonsense election reform that reaffirms the authority of states to create and administer their own election laws, not blatant federal overreach. We need rules that ensure all eligible voters can vote and certainty that those votes will be counted, not a road that leads to election fraud for the benefit of one political party.

That’s why I recently reintroduced HR 860, the You Must Be Alive to Vote Act, which would prevent people who are deceased from being automatically registered to vote, opening the door to ballot harvesting and fraud.

Likewise, in the House, Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., has introduced the Save Democracy Act, which would restore public trust in our national elections by protecting voter registration, ballot casting, and ballot counting.

These are the types of reforms that would actually protect American votes and rebuild confidence in our government.

One of the quotes inscribed on the wall of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C., says that our third president swore “upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Like him, I cannot stand idly by as our rights to free speech and free and fair elections are dismantled in Congress by a fanatical and unbalanced majority.

I can only hope my colleagues feel as strongly as I do and will fight against this bill in order to protect the American public from the tyranny of the left.

Dems’ ‘Election Reforms’ Would End American Democracy As We Know It

by I & I Editorial Board: HR. 1, the Democrats’ just-passed “election reform” bill, laughably dubbed by supporters the “For The People Act,” is so bad you might be tempted to ignore it. After all, legislation this awful can’t get passed by both chambers of Congress and signed into law, right? But all Americans should take it seriously. It’s an attempt to take away your right to vote and create permanent Democratic control of the federal government.

Yes, elections have consequences, and terrible bills like this certainly prove that. Anyone who voted for the Democrats in 2020 hoping for a “turn to the center” should by now be feeling mighty foolish. H.R. 1 is but one example.

So far, Democrats have passed a near $2 trillion spending splurge that has next to nothing to do with COVID-19, created a new crisis on our border, alienated our strongest ally in the Mideast, convinced a bullying China that we’re weak and vulnerable, and, instead of doing the people’s business as they’re supposed to, are now “investigating” the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C.

Some 5,000 National Guard troops, totally unnecessary right now, remain camped in the nation’s barbed-wire encased capital, despite the fact that the FBI testified last week that no arms were seized by them nor were any shots fired by demonstrators during the supposed “insurrection.”

Democrats hope to use the distraction of troops in D.C. and a probe of the events of Jan. 6 to pursue the most radical congressional agenda in history. The showpiece of this effort is H.R. 1, which passed the House by a sliver and now goes to the Senate. If they fail in the Senate, don’t worry: They’ll try again soon.

If H.R. 1 passes, America’s democratic republic as we know it, which once stood as the envy of the world, will end. In its place will be a single-party nanny state backed by force that will rule in perpetuity. Guess which party is the “one” in this “one-party state?”

Now for specifics. The list below from the Conservative Action Project shows H.R. 1 in all its radical ugliness. It:
  • Forces states to implement mandatory voter registration, removing civic participation as a voluntary choice, and increasing chances for error.
  • Mandates that states allow all felons to vote.
  • Forces states to extend periods of early voting, which has shown to have no effect on turnout.
  • Mandates same-day voter registration, which encourages voter fraud.
  • Limits the ability of states to cooperate to see who is registered in multiple states at the same time. Prohibits election observers from cooperating with election officials to file formal challenges to suspicious voter registrations.
  • Criminalizes protected political speech by making it a crime to “discourage” someone from voting.
  • Bars states from making their own laws about voting by mail.
  • Prohibits chief election officials in each state from participating in federal election campaigns.
  • Mandates free mailing of absentee ballots.
  • Mandates that states adopt new redistricting commissions.
More to the point, it federalizes elections, putting our voting system in the hands of Deep State bureaucrats and political insiders. Not local, accountable officials and politicians. It’s the electoral equivalent, as the old saying goes, of putting the foxes in charge of the hen house.

Meanwhile, it also requires states to allow the odious and entirely dishonest practice of “ballot harvesting,” which lets third parties collect ballots on behalf of groups of voters, such as those in nursing homes.

The American Greatness web site put it succinctly, calling H.R. 1 a “monster” that “would ensure a Republican never again wins the White House, not to mention many other federal and state offices. H.R. 1 is the biggest attempted electoral power grab in history, a flagrant and unconstitutional usurpation of the authority individual states have to write election law.”

Americans should know: All your rights are in serious danger. This bill, should it become law, would end our political system, with all its checks and balances, and eventually replace it with a Democratic Party dictatorship. That’s no exaggeration.

Rank-and-file Democrats should also be alarmed by this. Because once entrenched in Washington, the Democratic ruling elite will have no need to listen to their own voters. They will have what they wanted all along: an end to opposition and unparalleled power. Democratic voters won’t tell them what to do; they’ll tell the voters what to do. And the leftist media will back them up.

Those who think that “woke” and “cancel” cultures and demonizing Trump supporters as “domestic terrorists” aren’t preludes to something awful are blind to the historical truth.

This is how it worked in the old Soviet Union, and how it works today in places such as Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba and across much of the Middle East. They all have “elections,” but there’s never any doubt who’ll win. And they all have “rights,” but they’re revocable by the state. Any slip of the tongue can get you fired, imprisoned or killed, and your property has no protections from the government.

One other thing they all share in common: Their people get poorer and sicker, their economies slowly collapse, and their miserable citizens seek desperately to leave, all because they can’t change things through the ballot box. Short of violence, they can do nothing about it. Sadly, the “For The People Act” is a step in that direction.

If It Ain’t Broke

Judd Garrett
by Judd Garrett: In the 1921 movie, The Kid, Charlie Chaplin plays a “Tramp” who is working in-cahoots with a “Kid” who walks around town throwing stones at houses and businesses shattering their windows. Shortly thereafter, The Tramp, working as a window-repairman, shows up and fixes the window for a price. The Kid creates the problem, Charlie Chaplin fixes it, and the homeowner pays.

There is a criminology theory called the “broken window theory” which asserts that visible signs of crime and civil disorder, such as “broken windows” and vandalism, create an anti-social environment that encourages further crime and disorder, eventually leading to more serious crimes. So, stopping the breaking of windows and repairing vandalism reduces the chaos and disorder which in turn, reduces a climate of criminality.

Keynesian economic theorists, believe that “broken windows” can be very useful to society. They believe that “during the periods of high unemployment, it would be better for the government to pay workers to dig out holes and fill them up again, or even to break and fix windows, than doing nothing at all.” Like in the movie, breaking windows stimulate economic action; money is spent on a new window and to hire the repairman to install the new window. But the end result only gets us back to zero; a window in the wall that had already been there before it was intentionally broken. Economic activity is created but no new value is, and that’s the problem with intentionally breaking windows.

We used to have a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That was the philosophy of a hands-off, laissez-faire approach to governing. But many of our leaders today follow a different philosophy, similar to The Kid in the movie, “If it ain’t broke, break it.” So, they can “fix” it. They are political Keynesians relying on “broken windows” to create political action to get what they want. Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel famously said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste… it's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not before.” Which means, ‘let’s exploit the crisis, let’s exploit the pain and suffering of the people to get the stuff that we want.’

Politicians justify their existence, and even derive their power from addressing the problems they have either created or failed to fix previously. This is why very few problems ever get solved. The $14 trillion the United States spent on Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” created more poverty than it prevented. The “fix” usually breaks more things than needed to be fixed, which creates a very expensive vicious cycle.

The ultimate “broken window” was Covid-19. The Covid-lockdowns were unnecessary. Many of the politicians, such as; Newsom, Whitmer, Cuomo, Pelosi, Feinstein, believed they were unnecessary because they violated the lockdown orders they imposed on others. Recently, Matt Meyer, the head of the San Francisco Teachers’ Union who has kept the San Francisco public schools closed for 12 months, was caught dropping his daughter off at in-person private school proving he does not believe in-person school is a health risk. So why is he keeping the schools closed? He is “breaking a window”; exploiting a crisis, benefitting from others’ suffering.

Lockdowns were unnecessary, but useful, designed to drive our country into an economic and psychological ditch to influence the election. This time last year, Donald Trump was on his way to a landslide victory; The Democrats were close to losing the House and Senate; China had been knocked to its knees by Trump’s tariffs and negotiations; And Big Tech was facing a hard crack down from the Federal government. But as a result of Covid, the Democrats control the House, the Senate, and the Presidency. China is positioned to become the world’s economic superpower, and Silicon Valley has more money and more power than before.

Is it a coincidence that the only states that ordered Covid-positive patients back into nursing homes causing tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths of seniors, were heavily-populated states with a Democrat Governor; NY Cuomo, MI Whitmer, CA Newsom, NJ Murphy, and PA Wolf? No Republican Governor made such an order. A 4th grader would have enough sense to ask, ‘why would you send people with a deadly virus to go live with old and weak people? Wouldn’t that make those people sick?’

Is it another coincidence that these states also enacted the harshest lockdowns of small businesses, churches, and public schools? So, they intentionally exposed the most vulnerable to Covid while placing extreme restrictions on the least vulnerable. It was almost as if these Governors wanted as many deaths of the elderly as possible, and as much destruction of the other citizens’ lives as possible. They knew that the complicit media would blame Trump for every Covid-death, every job lost, every ounce of misery. So, the more the merrier.

But people wouldn’t make decisions that will cause others to die, would they? Well, maybe. Enter Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm (never let a crisis go to waste) Emanuel. He was a member of Joe Biden’s coronavirus task force. In 2014, Zeke Emanuel wrote an editorial arguing that people should not live past age 75, because they become a burden to their families and society. So, at the same time Democrat Governors were intentionally exposing seniors to death by Covid, within the Democratic brain trust on Covid, there was a powerful individual who believes that people over the age of 75 dying in nursing homes is a preferred outcome, and possibly, he saw the coronavirus as a crisis “not to let go to waste” in that effort.

Dr. Emanuel is not alone. Proponents of government run healthcare don’t mind when the elderly die, either. Death of the elderly means significantly less money the state pays in Medicare expenses. Barack Obama, the man whose name is on Obamacare, said in his 2013 State of the Union Address, “the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. And those of us who care deeply about programs like Medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms.” He speaks as if he cares more about saving Medicare than saving the lives of the aging population. And what were the reforms he was referring to? Obama once told senior citizens that “maybe you're better off not having the (life-saving) surgery, but taking the painkiller."

Politicians have been pushing government control of “end-of-life care” for many years which simply means ending elderly people’s lives as quickly, and as cost effectively as possible. Covid-positive patients in nursing homes is a win all around for the Democrats; kill off as many elderly nursing home patients as possible which saves money in their much-revered Medicare program, and blame all the deaths on Trump which will help them win the Presidency.

Maybe Governor Cuomo’s current #metoo scandal is not solely a distraction from his deadly nursing home policy, but the shiny object taking everyone’s eyes off all 5 Democrat Governors deadly nursing home policies and the real reasons behind them.

Joe Biden and the Democrats care so much about stopping the spread of Covid in our country that they have completely opened the border, creating a surge of over 4,000 illegal immigrants per day into America without a Covid test or a vaccine, creating a border crisis that is overwhelming the system. All of these policies, opening nursing homes and the border to Covid-positive people while shutting down businesses, schools and churches are designed to create chaos, and misery, and death, which they can exploit politically.

The crisis of Covid allowed certain politicians to unconstitutionally change the election laws in many of the battleground states which handed an uncharismatic, uninspiring, cognitively compromised Presidential candidate the most votes in United States election history. The “broken window” was Covid, the “fix” they benefitted from was changing the election laws. It’s interesting that very few election laws were changed in non-battleground states, as if those states were immune to Covid. On Thursday, Hillary Clinton said that the U.S. has a "once-in-a-generation opportunity" to reshape election rules via HR 1, which means, continue to exploit the Covid crisis to nationalize the election law changes making every election as susceptible to as much fraud as possible.

The $1.9 trillion “Covid-Relief” Bill that recently passed the House and Senate is another exploitation of the broken window. This “Covid-Relief” Bill is very light on Covid-relief and very heavy on political pay backs with less than 9% going to Covid-relief, and less than 1% going to vaccines. They are not even trying to pretend anymore. In the old days, there would be about a 50-50 split between stated-spending and pork barrel spending. This bill has a 10-90 split. They are using Covid to do the things they would not normally get done.

Throughout 2020, we watched tens of thousands of windows broken, building burned down, stores looted, cars set on fire while the same politicians who condemned the Capital riots cheered those riots on for months. To them, riots were good as long as they could exploit the chaos. There has not been much improvement in race relations since November, but how many BLM and Antifa riots have there been in the last four months now that the election is over, and no one can benefit politically from the chaos? We probably won’t see many of these riots until the summer and fall of 2022, and definitely 2024.

Since June 2020, the Democrats have called for “defunding the police”, and recently, the Democratically-led house passed, H.R. 1280, a.k.a. “The George Floyd Bill” to defund the police. Exploiting that tragedy to create more chaos they can exploit. House Minority Leader, Kevin McCarthy said, “H.R. 1280 would cost police departments hundreds of millions of dollars — the equivalent of taking 3,000 cops or more off the streets.” Defunding the police creates the chaos, the “broken windows”, they can exploit to grab more and more power for themselves.

The Capital riot on January 6 is another “broken window” that has allowed the Democrats to not only lock down the Capital, but to target their political opponents. They are using the riots as the justification to go after those they disagree with; anyone they deem “dangerous” can be shut down, banned, and even arrested. They impeached Trump for the riot, so they could ban him from running for office again. They are exploiting the riot so expertly; it is almost as if they wanted the riot to occur so they could do these things they could not do before.

Remember, evil people exploit crises. Evil people benefit from the suffering and death of others. Look at all the people who are better off today than they were 12 months ago. They didn’t just make a few extra bucks off of breaking windows, they fully empowered themselves by breaking a country, and exploiting the death of millions of people. And that is a glimpse into the moral and ethical character of those who will be leading this country both politically and economically. It does not look promising.
