Just a sample and there’s plenty more. Almost impossible to keep up with the changes in the American political environment since Joe Biden became president.

Gabbard Sounds the Alarm Leftists Are Plotting ‘KGB-Style Surveillance’ of Conservatives
On Tuesday, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) issued another important warning about the Democrats like former CIA Director John Brennan who appear to have seized on the Capitol riot as an excuse to crack down on dissent from the Left’s orthodoxy. Democrats seem to be mulling a new domestic “War on Terror” complete with surveillance of American “insurgents” like… Libertarians.

Tulsi Gabbard: Brennans, Schiffs, and Big Tech Oligarchs More Dangerous than Mob that Stormed Capitol
Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard blasted former CIA Director John Brennan, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), and big tech “oligarchs” seeking to censor fellow Americans after the January 6 Capitol riot.Gabbard shared a video statement online where she criticized them for trying to take away Americans’ constitutionally protected rights. She said in the video: The mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6 to try to stop Congress from carrying out its constitutional responsibilities were behaving like domestic enemies of our country. But let’s be clear. The John Brennans, Adam Schiffs, and the oligarchs in big tech who are trying to undermine our constitutionally protected rights
`
Flashback: Biden Suggested Only “Dictators” Legislate By Executive Order, Then He Signs 33 In His First Week
Nearly every day of former President Donald Trump’s term, someone — either from the opposition party or from the Democrat-aligned media — called him some version of authoritarian.That was especially the case whenever Trump issued an executive order, many if not most of which were summarily challenged by left-wing groups in court, often successfully. It never made any sense to call a president whose executive orders were overturned and who eventually got kicked off of all social media a tyrant and a dictator since not too many tyrants and dictators throughout the history of Humankind had their orders contradicted
`
Insane: Joe Biden Signs Executive Order Banning the Term “China Virus”
Joe Biden signed an executive order today that banned the term “China virus.” It’s not clear how this will help with the pandemic.The coronavirus is widely believed today to have been created in a lab in Wuhan China. This was one of his 37 executive orders in six days.(Tweet) This is not a joke.CBS reported: The Biden executive order is also expected to direct federal agencies like the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to examine whether there are xenophobic references like “China virus” in any existing policies, directives or government websites
`
Biden Orders DOJ Not To Renew Contracts With Private Prisons As Part Of Racial Equity Agenda
As part of his promise to advance racial equity, President Joe Biden has instructed the Department of Justice not to renew private prison contracts.The policy change was part of a fresh set of four additional executive orders the president signed on Tuesday to eliminate alleged institutional discrimination within federal agencies.“No one should be profiteering off of our criminal justice system,” President Biden tweeted on Tuesday evening. “That’s why today, I ordered the Department of Justice to end the use of private prisons by the federal government.”(Tweet)
`
Joe Biden Signs Executive Order to Make All Federal Vehicles Electric
President Joe Biden signed an executive order Monday to phase out the federal government’s use of vehicles that run on gas and replace them with ones that run on electricity.The process is part of Biden’s “Made in America” executive order, which the president claims will create one million additional jobs in the auto industry in America. (Tweet/Video) “The federal government also owns an enormous fleet of vehicles, which we’re going to replace with clean electric vehicles made right here in America, by American workers,” Biden told reporters during a briefing Monday announcing his “Buy American” executive order.But replacing an entire federal fleet of hundreds of thousands of vehicles

AP sources: Biden to pause oil drilling on public lands
WASHINGTON—President Joe Biden is set to announce a wide-ranging moratorium on new oil and gas leasing on U.S. lands, as his administration moves quickly to reverse Trump administration policies on energy and the environment and address climate change.Two people with knowledge of Biden’s plans outlined the proposed moratorium, which will be announced Wednesday. They asked not to be identified because the plan has not been made been public; some details remain in flux.The move follows a 60-day suspension of new drilling permits for U.S. lands and waters announced last week and follows Biden’s campaign pledge to halt new drilling on federal lands and end the leasing of publicly owned
`
Ric Grenell doubles down on claim Susan Rice is the ‘shadow’ president calling the shots
Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said that, based on President Joe Biden’s initial executive actions, he believes someone else is actually setting the agenda — Susan Rice.Grenell raised eyebrows earlier this month when he first said he believes that Rice, who was President Obama’s UN ambassador and national security adviser and is now serving as Biden’s domestic policy director, is calling the shots in the current administration.“Susan Rice has been tapped to do domestic policy, and what is really interesting about that is she’s got no experience in domestic policy,” Grenell, who served as acting DNI and U.S. ambassador to Germany under former President Trump, said.
`
Democrats Move To Ban Trump Supporters From Federal Jobs Or Joining The Military
Cancel culture has arrived in Congress in a big way. Well, to be fair, it’s been there for a while now, but Florida Democratic congresswoman Stephanie Murphy is really upping her game in this regard. New proposed legislation from Murphy would prevent anyone who participated in the January protests and riot on Capitol Hill from being eligible for a security clearance. Further, she would impose a similar ban on anyone who participated in any “stop the steal” rally or anyone who knowingly engaged with Q-anon. Given that a security clearance check is required for virtually
`
Does Joe Know?
For those of us watching this made-for-TV special in which a totalitarian cabal at the core of the Democratic Party takes over America while we are locked at home, one question arises: Does the mentally impaired Joseph R. Biden know that he was put into the presidency by a small committee* of hard Left operatives, and is currently serving as a figurehead, as all decisions about policy and personnel are made by others? Or does he think that he really is “the president,” with all that usually entails? Does he believe that 81 million adult American citizens voted for him after he failed to answer basic questions
`
Meet Joe Biden, The Job Slayer
When running for office, President Joe Biden repeatedly proclaimed that his policies would create 18 million jobs. But on his first day in office, Biden took actions that will put millions out of work. One of the very first executive actions Biden signed was to kill the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that President Barack Obama had blocked for years, which President Donald Trump finally approved. Biden’s reason? To combat the “climate crisis.” While canceling the pipeline won’t have any impact on global temperatures, it will kill thousands of (mostly union) jobs. As the plumbers and pipefitters union noted:

    When prisons are privatized, the operators stand to maximize their profits through

    (1) the highest possible incidence of crime,

    (2) the widest possible definition of crime,

    (3) the lowest possible standard of proof for obtaining convictions, assisted by the highest possible incidence of, and the weakest possible safeguards against, prosecutorial malpractice, and

    (4) the longest possible sentences for persons so convicted of crimes so defined.

    Of course, even if the government runs the prisons, the employees of the prison system stand to gain in job security from a higher prison population. But the employer — the government — has an incentive to minimize the prison population in order to minimize the cost to taxpayers. In contrast, when prisons are privatized, not only the employees but also the employers stand to gain from a higher prison population, and the employers will reinvest some of their taxpayer-funded profits in lobbying and campaigning in order to grow at taxpayers’ expense. In this case, the threat to the taxpayers is not only to their wealth, but also to their freedom and their good names.

    I would not trust a single one of them. Where was she when there was need to thunder publicly about the coup d’état? As absent and as gutless as supreme court little j judges Kavanaugh and Amy Comely Designer Fashionable Family Barrett, gifted their new jobs by President Donald Trump and they’ve got to Washington and come out of the boxes like One the Red, to chase down their backhanders from the ruling class, lakeside bungalows, school fees and overseas holidays all paid up by generous benefactors.

    They follow the standard set by Lindsay Graham and Trey Gowdy, who touted themselves as solid supporters and set out earnestly to do precisely nothing for President Trump – not a thing. This other curly headed odd looking senator bloke with the stupid name who is now thumping the table after its all over, Randy Paul (who looks more like a Callum) is another example.

  19. Mother Lode says:

    ‘China virus’ is xenophobic?

    The meaning of the word ‘xenophobia’ has shifted a long way from a fear or hatred of outsiders (esp other races) to ‘disapproved of by China’s government’.

    Same as ‘racism’ originally denoting an irrational prejudice against people for supposed racial differences but now meaning ‘saying something that is disapproved of by governments we approve of’.

    Interestingly, the left doesn’t think it xenophobic to vilify Israel or Jooz, even launching campaigns like the ‘BDS’, but it is to say that a virus came from China. Oh, nor do they cavil to say ‘Spanish flu’.

    It is now racist for a person to say something about China even though they do not say the same thing about Japan, even though they are the same race and thus race cannot be the basis of the judgement.

  20. Mother Lode says:

    Democrats Move To Ban Trump Supporters From Federal Jobs Or Joining The Military

    Fine. Send lefty soy-boys to fight the wars you get yourselves into.

    The Democrat idea of war seems not dissimilar to that of Ingsoc’s in 1984 where they keep wars with Eurasia and/or Eastasia on a nice steady level, rather than the traditional largely fluctuating tides of victory and defeat until one side is inundated. A steady level of war means steady destruction to be met by steady production and a steady state of anxiety among the public.

    Do you include the Antifa/BLM rioters who last year burned buildings across multiple cities in the US, injured hundreds of police, and whose actions led to the deaths of dozens?

    PS, surprisingly little detail has come out about the shooting in the Capitol, and the alleged beating of the policeman to death in a high security building likely to have lots of surveillance equipment installed.

    Inspired by President Trump’s rhetoric, I think it sensible to stop people from interfering with the proper conduct of elections. The young man described in your link apparently tried to misrepresent himself as a Hillary supporter to cause votes for her to be lost. This looks like bad behaviour to me and I support action against him. I am not weeping for him.

    What can you say? He seems quite have to have someone put in jail for “bad behaviour”. Freedom of speech is obviously very low priority for him. Either that, or he simply doesn’t understand the implications.

    You are reading your own intentions into my words. I did not say that there was no evidence in relation to the policeman’s death, just that surprisingly little detail had come out. Given the high probability of extensive surveillance capabilities in the Capitol, this seems unusual. Compare with the virtual frame by frame analyses of various police shootings last year.

    Good to see your concern about interfering with the outcome of an election, but you seem less concerned about the possible (probable?) election fraud back in November.

    Also, recall that other groups have attempted to hijack the Congress, the Kavanaugh hearings being a good example. It would have been nice to see some of those in court.

  51. Kim says:

    Bruce of Cardiff; Boambee: you both appear to retain faith in the Trump lie. At this point not a single jot of evidence has been presented to a court that provides an iota of support for the stolen election meme. It’s fake. As are the many characters like Jones who promote this crap to sell dud products to the gullible. Trump himself is a classic snake oil salesman and with a bit of luck he will end up in a tent show.

  56. Mother Lode says:

    Actually, they have been desperate to get their evidence in front of a court. And their enemies have prevented them not be pointing to evidence but insisting on ‘lack of standing’.

    Now, for them the thing that would damn Trump’s supporters most comprehensively is examining evidence and demonstrating that there is nothing to Trump’s evidence, but they have bent over backwards to avoid that.

    Speaks volumes.

    And the idea that only a court can declare evidence valid is nonsensical. They often defer to expert witnesses who are the real assayers of evidence. Things like statistics and the operation of the Oblivion machines would be prime examples of what is outside the competence of a judge, and Trump’s team have indeed consulted and even retained people of expertise. They are more competent to evaluate evidence than a mere court.
