Less we be amiss, add the Big Lies of 2020. Still too close to be viewed from a historical perceptive, but you are not allowed to talk about it yet. Nothing to see here folks. Don’t listen to the haters. They will be silenced for good.

TRUMP WINS IN MICHIGAN

“I should add that the Democrats’ assertion that numerous courts have rejected the Trump administration’s claims of voter fraud is fatuous. There is no court in which the necessary discovery on the factual issue of voter fraud has been conducted, let alone a court in which such claims have been rejected. That process, if it occurs in any court, will take at least a year and a half to complete, probably longer.”.....

....” We have two parties in America: one that wants free, fair and honest elections, with only legal voters casting ballots, and doing so only once, and one that wants ballot harvesting, unverified mail-in voting, unattended drop boxes into which anyone can drop any number of ballots of unknown provenance, and so on. It isn’t hard to see which party has confidence in the power of its ideas to gain the support of most Americans, as long as only actual, living and legal voters cast ballots, and they only vote once.

The integrity of our elections will be one of America’s most important issues in the years to come.”

Just a magnet for illegals to flood in -

It’s outrageous that while millions of American workers are still hurting, and in the midst of a border crisis created by President [Joe] Biden, that we have states handing out taxpayer dollars to illegal immigrants. We should not be rewarding Biden’s open border policies by creating incentives for people to cross our border illegally. That’s why I’m introducing a bill to stop taxpayer dollars from going to any state that is providing payments to illegal immigrants. Americans should always come first.

The legislation would prevent stimulus payments from the American Rescue Plan from going to any state that provides cash payments to illegal aliens and includes provisions allowing the federal government to recoup the payments if a state were to provide illegal aliens any monetary payment.

Reps. Jason Smith (R-MO) and James Comer (R-KY) sent a letter to the Joe Biden administration calling for an investigation into New York over distributing coronavirus funds to illegal immigrants. They wrote:

Unfortunately, the $1.9 trillion spending bill included language prohibiting states from using these funds to offset tax relief they might wish to provide their citizens. However, despite concerns raised by Congressional Republicans, it did not explicitly limit the potential use of American taxpayer dollars to prioritize illegal immigrants over American families.

Fear of rioters is pushing due process and truth tellers off the page and out the door -

The Brooklyn Center City Council voted to fire Boganey, a longtime city employee, during an emergency meeting, the Star Tribune reported. At the same meeting, the council voted to give the mayor command authority over the city’s police department.

During a virtual workshop after the meeting, Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson said she voted to fire Boganey out of fear of potential reprisals from protestors if she did not, according to the newspaper.

"He was doing a great job. I respect him dearly," Lawrence-Anderson said. "I didn't want repercussions at a personal level."

God damn you guys are a bunch of freakin' morons.

I cannot believe so much of my time was wasted trying to discuss anything with a group of dogmatic bigoted radicals. The only injustice in your books if financial injustice. Civil liberties when they are your own and have no problem trampling on those same liberties of others.

You guys might want to learn about liberty and freedoms first before speaking of them like you support what they actually mean. I will fight for your freedoms and liberties as much as I believe all of you to be disgusting human beings.

I oppose the undemocratic decrees being handed down by Executive Branches throughout the United States of America. In emergencies, temporary measures are understandable. Over a year out when we were originally told a few weeks is beyond my patience. Anything that has do with Covid 19 needs to go through the democratic process at this point. Each state legislature and federal level need protect and act by the US and State Constitutions if we are to preserve any of the rights we have remaining.

"An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."

Sure thing "Ben",, as your side is out to shred the Constitution.
And the mentally challenged one you installed as Prez. is signing whatever is shoved in front of him.. He has no idea of what he is signing. You know,,, those undemocratic decrees you speak of.

EXUUUUUUSE ME if I don't agree with your march to socialism.

What is the need to pass a law that you cannot provide food or water to some3one waiting in line to vote? For example If I am waiting in line and it's taking longer than I expected why can't I call my sweetheart to bring me a bite to eat and some water? That is now illegal in George.

Can you explain the reason for that?

"A Georgia law has not “criminalized giving people bottles of water.” It pertains to political organizations."

""I've heard it a couple times on this program, that the idea that they've criminalized giving people bottles of water. They have not," said Holmes, founder of a consulting firm. "What is in the statute, what is absolutely clear, is that they're preventing political organizations from giving people in line things: meals, water, what have you. Water is and should be provided at the polls for people who are standing in line."

It's called electioneering Emery,,

The pony tail of ignorance waves that flag high. You might want to take a minute to find out about blue states that have the same and tougher standards like NY and delaware. Giving something of value from party or committee to voters is a big NO NO everywhere.

Ben Emery

Walt,
My side hasn't held a position of power since the Johnson administration. As global, US, and California population explodes so does laws.

I hate the Democratic and Republican Parties with a passion. They are the enemy from within we are supposed to protect the US Constitution from shredding it. You guys sit here and defend 50% of the worst offenders while holding the other 50% accountable.

Get some guts or some brains and start defending the Constitution against all those who threaten it. Rhetoric doesn't equal action.

We have a one party system and one world government, it is a corporate instead of communist like we were all warned about.

Bill Gates Crimes against Humanity and Nature.

Here is what my side is saying and taking action upon. Taking on the largest private billionaire funder of WHO.

https://www.resilience.org/stories/2020-09-23/bill-gates-global-agenda-and-how-we-can-resist-his-war-on-life/

Excerpt by Vandana Shiva

In fact, Gates has been trying to dismantle the public education system of the United States for two decades. For him students are mines for data. That is why the indicators he promotes are attendance, college enrollment, and scores on a math and reading test, because these can be easily quantified and mined. In reimagining education, children will be monitored through surveillance systems to check if they are attentive while they are forced to take classes remotely, alone at home. The dystopia is one where children never return to schools, do not have a chance to play, do not have friends. It is a world without society, without relationships, without love and friendship.

As I look to the future in a world of Gates and Tech Barons, I see a humanity that is further polarized into large numbers of ‘throw away’ people who have no place in the new Empire. Those who are included in the new Empire will be little more than digital slaves.

Or, we can resist. We can seed another future, deepen our democracies, reclaim our commons, regenerate the earth as living members of a One Earth Family, rich in our diversity and freedom, one in our unity and interconnectedness. It is a healthier future. It is one we must fight for. It is one we must claim.

We stand at a precipice of extinction. Will we allow our humanity as living, conscious, intelligent, autonomous beings to be extinguished by a greed machine that does not know limits and is unable to put a break on its colonisation and destruction? Or will we stop the machine and defend our humanity, freedom, and autonomy to protect life on earth?

Get a grip "ben".. It's the LIBS that are trashing things.
Didn't you notice Trump restoring rights and freedoms?
As soon as Biden got installed, they got ripped away?

Ben Emery - It would be nice if you would stop blowing spittle all over the place and be just a tad more specific. When has any conservative here praised Bill Gates? When have we cheered lock-downs and school closures?
Just what 'rights' and 'freedoms' do you refer to?
I'm not a Dem or an R, so it's really not clear just who or why you are ranting.
I'm far from a moron by any stretch of the imagination. It appears you are lashing out from a basis of frustration at people simply not agreeing with you.
Chill out.

Paul Emery

Did you read the law Walt?


this is from fact checker:

"the language in the law doesn’t ban only political entities from handing out water.

Keith Williams, general counsel to Republican House Speaker David Ralston, told PolitiFact: "Any individual other than a worker at a polling place is prohibited from handing out water, etc., within 150 feet of a polling place or within 25 feet of the line."

Election law experts reached similar conclusions.

"I read the solicitation provision and the prohibition on food and water at the polls to be separate prohibitions in the law," said Richard Hasen, a University of California Irvine election law professor. "It is not limited to those who are soliciting votes."

Justin Levitt, a Loyola Marymount University law school professor, told PolitiFact: "I read, and I believe courts would read, SB 202 to prohibit anyone from giving food or water to any voter in line."

A spokesperson with Georgia's secretary of state noted that voters are welcome to bring their own food and refreshments with them to stand in line. He said the purpose of the provision is to avoid having situations such as candidates handing out water or food wrapped in campaign materials.

Cracking down on food and water giveaways to voters in Georgia is not new. A state law already banned giving gifts "for the purpose of registering as a voter, voting, or voting for a particular candidate." That provision doesn’t mention food or water directly, but Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had previously interpreted it to include food or water.
Our ruling

Holmes said a Georgia law has not "criminalized giving people bottles of water." It pertains to political organizations.

SB 202 makes it a crime for people — and not just people from political organizations — to hand out food or bottles of water within 150 feet of a polling place or 25 feet of any voter standing in line.

The only kernel of truth is that the law has a sentence which allows poll workers to make available "self-service water from an unattended receptacle to an elector waiting in line to vote." But just because poll workers can make self-service water available, doesn’t mean they are required to come up with a way to make water accessible to voters in every line at every polling site. Also, people could hand out water or food to voters outside the 150-foot and 25-foot boundaries."

Because a LIB says so.

Now a computer chip is "infrastructure".. OH.. And so are people... "human infrastructure" according to bumbles Biden.

George,

Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark dies and no mention. Now Walt, here is my side represented and low and behold he was from the JFK and LBJ administrations.

What kind of Patriot are you?

https://www.answercoalition.org/?utm_campaign=answer_ramsey_clark&utm_medium=email&utm_source=answercoalition

This is what fighting for civil liberties and against discrimination looks like.

Excerpt

"The ANSWER Coalition mourns the loss of Ramsey Clark, who died at the age of 93 on April 9. Ramsey was a devoted fighter against war and racism, and for peace and justice. Ramsey played a key role in the formation of the ANSWER Coalition in the days following the September 11 attacks. The following obituary was written by Gloria La Riva, a leading ANSWER organizer. It originally appeared on Liberation News.

Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General and renowned international human-rights attorney who stood against U.S. military aggression worldwide, died peacefully April 9 at his home in New York City, surrounded by close family. He was 93 years old.

As a pre-teen growing up in Albuquerque, I certainly knew his name and that he was attorney general. I could not imagine then that we would become friends, that I would have the honor of working with him and learning what a great humanitarian Ramsey Clark was.

As Assistant and later U.S. Attorney General, Ramsey Clark helped draft the two historic U.S. Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and was key enforcer of federal desegregation orders. Personally accompanying Martin Luther King Jr. and James Meredith in the face of racist terror from Alabama to Mississippi, Ramsey was a fervent opponent of racism. In the Justice Department, he frequently confronted repressive policies within the government itself, from Congress to the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover. "

The realities of racism in socialist shit holes V MAGA country -

According to the Department of Justice, out here where I live in rural North Carolina, throughout all of 2019, there were a total of only 20 hate crime allegations in our 13 rural counties where the population adds up to 668,000. That means that throughout 2019, there were only 2.9 hate crime allegations per 100,000 people.

Guess what the hate crime number is in some of the most progressive, left-wing cities in America? Well, you don’t have to guess, because I have those numbers for you….

Portland, OR = 5.75 reported hate crime incidents per 100,000
Boulder, CO = 7.9 incidents per 100,000
San Francisco, CA = 7.2 incidents per 100,000
Portland, OR = 5.2 incidents per 100,000
Alexandria, VA = 3.1 incidents per 100,000
Arlington, VA = 4.7 incidents per 100,000
Seattle, WA = 40 (not a typo) per 100,000
Washington DC = 29 (not a typo) incidents per 100,000 (this is where the elite media live LOL)
I think you are starting to get the point, but let’s close with my personal favorite…

Berkeley, CA = 6.5 per 100,000
Golly, gee, will you look at that! It is two and three times — and even ten times safer for a minority to live in Rural MAGA Country than it is in a oh-so progressive city populated and governed by Democrats.

How is that possible when we’re told that we are the racists? How is it possible that where all of America’s so-called racists live, where we all congregate, gather, own guns, and govern ourselves, there is less racism — and in most cases — MUCH less racism, than there is in cities filled with Democrats?

Shouldn’t there be more racism where all we “racists” live?

Look at those hate crime numbers again and what you will see is that a racial, sexual, and religious minority is around twice as safe in Rural Trump Land than they are in America’s most left-wing cities, and TEN TIMES safer than they are in Washington, DC, where Joe Biden won 93 percent of the vote!

Scott O,
What do you oppose of Bill Gates and his disgusting Foundation?

Here are some examples of Authoritarian Fascist Fab Five or should I say Fab Four? I saw Todd J passed away in January 2021. Any idea of the cause of his death? Seems like crickets from his right wing comrades about his death.

Which of these policies did you oppose when implemented by Republican Controlled Executive and Legislative Branches? Or even the stop/ frisk and free trade bullshit was
pushed hard by Clinton administration and 100% supported by Biden in the 90s.

Patriot Act, Homeland Security, Illegal Invasion/ Occupations of Sovereign Nations, Internationally and US Constitutional Illegal bombing campaigns, Torturing and Suspending Due Process for thousands of Muslims, Stop and Frisk, Free Trade, etc.

George Rebane and the Fab Five at the time debated the morality, the practice, and efficacy of stop and frisk in depth. Somehow you authoritarian statists who claim to love liberty and freedom support actions such as stop and frisk.

Todds passing was discussed when it happened not in a petulant overly emotional outburst three months after the fact.


And frankly Ben I thought you'd be in a better mood......what with your Nevada City full sized pickup truck driving, parking space blocking nemesis now beyond this veil of tears, Orange Man Bad gone and we Authoritarian, Fascists in retreat across the globe. "Trained Marxist" lesbians buying expensive property in the most exclusive neighborhood in Southern California instead of just confiscating it from the bourgeoisie (remarkably civilized I'd say). Murders way up in almost all of the progressively administered urban centers (no greater testament to just how little stopping and frisking is actually going on these days!). Upwards of a million refugee future democrat voters being imported this year alone. Progressive luminary and vaccine pervert Bill Gates morphing into C.

"Life in Rural America (which is where Republican Trump voters live and govern), is clean, safe and racially tolerant. Most places in America where life is dirty, polluted, dangerous, violent, and plagued with racial hate and race riots, are cities that are almost exclusively populated by and governed by Democrats."

Here in Nevada County,, that be changing. The rich city folk are moving here, and still wanting their Frisco life of rules to follow.

Mr Fish @ 2:08 am

I, too, am surprised that Ben is not in a better mood. Last time Mr. Ben regularly frequented these pages it was the continual bashing of the Walton Clan, as in Walmart and the descendants of Sam Walton. Too much money and how to disturbed their wealth. This time it’s Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation.

I suppose the difference between Brother Ben and Mr. Todd Junivall is that Todd ran for office and won...twice.

The topic is not Ben Emery. I best post any more personal thoughts about our local luminaries (The Emery Twins) over on Sandbox....save to say that Ben’s brush with the Grim Reaper should have put him in a more optimistic mood and awarded him with a new outlook. A new pair of glasses if you prefer. My optimism has failed me again.

Here is some more of the "redefining" by Chairman Biden(or his puppet master)
https://dailycaller.com/2021/04/12/wyoming-sen-barrasso-fact-checks-biden-infrastructure-sheet/

"A White House infrastructure fact sheet claims that nearly one-third of Wyoming’s trains and transit vehicles are outdated, despite the fact that the state does not operate a public train system.
In a section on Wyoming’s public transportation, the fact sheet claims, “32 percent of trains and other transit vehicles in the state are past useful life.” Biden’s plan defines transit vehicles as buses and rail cars. The state of Wyoming operated 463 buses in 2017, according to a vehicle inventory. However, all train tracks and trains operating within the state are privately owned, the state’s Republican Sen. John Barrasso noted."

Why is it you guys do not connect the dots between the lag of corporatist authoritarian administrations and the continuation of decline of quality of life on planet Earth?

The US isn't the entire globe but my entire life we have set the standard.

Since Nixon, with the exception of Carter, every administration has been promoting and continuing the Reagan Revolution of economics while reducing public social services.

Capitalism is a bigger failure than Communism and has proven to be more destructive towards natural and human rights.

It pains me to say this, I don't feel anything towards Todd's death since he pushed and advocated the worst qualities of human beings towards one another. I was just curious why nothing really written about him other than his wife of less than a year?

Were you guys actually friends with him or did you find him as disgusting as I did?

His journey will be fraught with obstacles to reunite with the universal energy if morality is an actual factor in returning to pure consciousness.

But it wasn't enough to win over some of their Democratic colleagues, who could not muster enough votes on Tuesday to advance the bill out of committee. The bill needed five votes to advance, but it only got four. Democratic Sen. Susan Eggman of Stockton joined two Republicans in voting against the bill, while two other Democrats — Robert Hertzberg of Van Nuys and Ben Hueso of Logan Heights — did not vote.

For the last two days the erosion of due process has been at the forefront of me wee brain. Beyond troubling. It’s down right frightening. A major concern we....er....I have in common with Brother Ben, speaking without using the ‘Royal We’ and in principle. Alarming in its breath, depth, height, and irrational acceptance and escalation. Terrifying.

‘The Death Of Due Process: Supporting A Constitutional Right Now Gets You Fired’

“Brooklyn Center City Manager Curt Boganey was fired on Monday, just hours after he suggested the police officer who fatally shot Daunte Wright in Minneapolis should receive due process before being fired. As The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reported, Boganey’s comments Monday evening contradicted Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott, who demanded the police officer be fired immediately. After firing Boganey, the Brooklyn Center city council expressed fears that Boganey’s comments about due process might cause the city to further descend into violence.

After the city council voted to fire Boganey, Council Member Kris Lawrence-Anderson admitted that Boganey was doing a “great job” but she feared that the violent mob would personally attack her if she didn’t vote to fire him, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

“He was doing a great job. I respect him dearly,” she said. “I didn’t want repercussions at a personal level.”
—-
“We’re living in a society where due process has become the enemy. Questioning an accuser amounts to retraumatizing them. Providing the accused any chance to defend themselves from potentially false accusations is tantamount to abuse. Curt Boganey is simply a casualty of the war on due process, fired because he simply stated that someone has a right to due process before their life is upended.

This is not the beginning of the war, but it is a serious escalation. How much longer until others are fired or forced out for making such statements? How much longer until it fully infects our legal system? How much longer until you are the one being punished?“

BT 9:09 - This is a continuation of the denial of due process at universities and colleges. The remedy used to be the courts, but that looks doubtful in this case (Boganey) since it seems the position is at the mercy of a simple vote. The police officer involved has resigned, so the point here is now moot.
The worst part is that it looks like the city council is driven by fear of mob violence. And the mob certainly knows it. The city govts actions as well as the prosecution and probably the jury in the Chauvin trial have and are driven by craven politics and fear of violent reprisal.
The message is clear to citizens wishing to live under the protection of a fair system of laws and justice.
Stay the hell away from areas controlled by Dems and areas that have a heavy concentration of 'diversity'.
We see now that if the accused are favored 'minorities' or left-leaning (or anarchist) they are to be free to do whatever and the police are to 'de-escalate'.
If the accused are considered 'white-privileged' or conservative - then call out that SWAT team and bring the hammer down.
The scales of justice are badly askew.
Say - how's that investigation of Hunter lying on his gun permit coming along?
Aren't the feds aware the POTUS is really, really serious about gun violence?

re BillT 909am - Everyone today is in fear of the woke Left that is becoming more prominent and rabid by the day. For each public official who goes along to get along with these ideological terrorists, they take ever more strength to bring about their next outrage. This replicates the historical cancellations of prominent people in the early Bolshevik and Nazi public squares before each regime assumed absolute power; then misstatements resulted in the gulag, concentration camps, and executions. We ignore and succumb to such precedents at our own peril. Unless and until we resist, they have no reason to reduce, let alone stand down, their attacks. (I note that some here see such prognostications as a bit too severe - 'It can't happen in America.'

Why don't you try winning some elections for a start? Goodness you are dramatic. Trump and the Republicans lost everything in the last four years. I know I keep repeating that but the American people have spoken through the election process which is the whole purpose of Democracy to give the people control of the government by whom they select to be their representatives.

As for Todd J. I was just wondering what happened. I searched all the blogs of their January 2021 posts and no mention of his death in any post.

I am not going to pretend I liked or respected him in any way shape or form. Again, I use reciprocity as my measuring stick on what form of energy that will be returned.

I saw the Obituary, nothing on what happened.

As for you guys, you do not even see how far up the rear ends of the Republican Party you are, whether you identify with it or not. If you can get your flashlights out and look to your left you'll see your Democratic Party counterparts up the same establishment rear ends.

When you complain about the Democrats you're complaining about the same people that control the Republican Party. You're are all partisanship useful idiots.

I haven't a clue what Todd finally succumbed to.....he was in his mid seventies. If I'm not mistaken a period in a mans life where existence can end suddenly. Light switch suddenly! Barry announced his passing and we said our farewells....that was pretty much it! I believe that a few of the regulars here attended his service.

This isn't a surprise to you I hope? What, you were hoping that Mother Earth signed the condolence register: Dear Todd......finally got you you motherfucker!......Mom

Guess Ben is out of here...again. See ya, losers.....until the next time. ‘Oh, it pains me to admit that I hate Todd’s guts in life and in death’.
Bullshit, Ben. That’s a big fat lie. It does not pain you in the least because, unfortunately, that is the kind of person you have become. You have turned into a bucket of vile puck and you own it. I certainly won’t cop to your bullshit. What happened to you? Life is not turning out the way you want it to or should? Every second now you think of Todd is a second that you don’t have to examine yourself. You have changed and not for the better. Go ahead and minimize your actions and rationalize it away. Blame Todd for your own abhorrent conduct here. And as your reek of fake moral outrage to somehow justify your despicable words of Todd’s passing, remember what you sow is what you reap. Resentment means to re-feel. And now Todd has free rent in your head and are you ever feeling it. Todd 1, Ben 0. No justice, no peace.

What brings your foul stench over here? To disguise telling us off by saying your are simply pointing out how wrong wrong wrong we are? Perhaps you are lying to yourself and actually think you are helping us see the light? No, you came over here simply to blast us and assuage your troubled conscience about the hatred in your own heart concerning Todd. Both of you ran for elected office and only one of you won. Todd 2, Ben 0.

So it begins, teach kids to hate in a state mandated way. -

The presenters claimed that America is a "system of oppression" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers" and "exists as long as settlers are living on appropriated land." White males brought "white supremacy, patriarchy, classism, genocide, private property, and God."

Critics have argued that left-wing ethnic studies programs consist of anti-American propaganda and divisive rhetoric – especially programs grounded in "critical race theory."

Critics argue that the controversial program actually increases racism by focusing on sterotypes, lauding perceived victhimhood and, on occasion, encouraging segregation.

CLIMATE CHANGE CHECKUP
If you have the misfortune to follow the dreary climate change business, you’ll know that one of the fine points is which long-term emissions forecast to plug into your model. Never mind the accuracy of the models for now—even a good model is vulnerable to the age-old GIGO problem—”garbage in, garbage out.” In climate model forecasting, if you have an absurd emissions forecast, you’ll get absurd (but headline-grabbing) results.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/04/climate-change-checkup.php

George Rebane

BillT 757am - recently major reviews by more sober climate scientists show that the climate hysteria has been and continues to be fueled by citing the worst case (three sigma) scenarios generated by already dodgy general circulation models. We have pointed this out for years. However Democrats (the party of science and intellectuals) divide themselves into two major groups on climate change - charlatans and double dummies, with the former using fraudulent model outputs to promote their command and control agenda through their innocently compliant constituents.

Walt

Why should a LIB apologizes? Never mind the lie.
https://dailycaller.com/2021/04/15/psaki-biden-russia-bounty-donald-trump-apology/
"White House Press Secretary declined to apologize for President Joe Biden’s past attacks on former President Donald Trump regarding now-discredited reports of Russia putting bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers Thursday.
Biden repeatedly attacked Trump for holding a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin in June 2020 and not bringing up allegations that Russia had offered cash bounties to terrorist organizations for killing U.S. military personnel in the Middle East. Trump at the time dismissed the report, and a Thursday announcement from the Biden administration said the U.S. intelligence community has “low to moderate” confidence in the allegation."

No apology for the piss papers impeachment either.

Rep. Nunes Blasts Democrats For ‘Hijacking’ Intelligence Community To Target Republicans As ‘Domestic Extremists’

Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California slammed Democrats and the Intelligence Community on Thursday for engaging in and focusing on partisan actions against U.S. citizens instead of bigger threats around the world.

“We have to see the world the way it is, not the way we want it to be or what is convenient for perverted political narratives,” Nunes said during the House Intelligence Committee’s annual public World Wide Threats Hearing. “The intelligence community has a crucial task of defending our national security from foreign threats, but the increasing politicization of this apparatus risks becoming a threat to our national security in and of itself.”
