Creepy grampa joes war on the south -

Christina Pushaw, press secretary for DeSantis, blasted the Biden administration’s move and suggested that “every corporate media outlet that publishes sensational stories about ‘overflowing hospitals’ in the South” should first “demand answers from the Biden Administration about why they’re restricting the supply of life saving COVID treatment to the South.”

“Supply of monoclonal antibody treatment to Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas & other Southern states restricted by Biden Admin with no real explanation besides ‘equity,’” she continued, asking, “How is it equitable to only send treatment for HALF the Floridians who need it, & NO state sites in Alabama?”

Come to think of it, Emery is a member of the "tail tucker" club. Tuck tail and run is LIB trait. They don't care who they leave behind. They don't care about the ramifications.
But HEY!! They are full of excuses and blame others.

I guess we should have never entered WWII. Just take the hits.(Pearl harbor) No big deal.. Right Emery?
Let all of Western Europe and England fight their own battle.
Emery would have no problem seeing them all speaking German today.

Oh I almost forgot. We should still be under British rule according to Emery. Those damned traitors of the revolutionary war.

OK Emery,, any thoughts on the civil war? Should the " South" still be it's own nation (of Democrats)?
Should the Abraham Lincoln monuments come down next?

Look Emery what the Repubs are doing.. Do you agree?

It's your side that wants to spend like Senators in a whore house.

"The Leader repeated to Secretary Yellen what he has said publicly since July: This is a unified Democrat government, engaging in a partisan reckless tax and spending spree," McConnell spokesperson Doug Andres said Thursday. "They will have to raise the debt ceiling on their own, and they have the tools to do it."

For months, Yellen has been urging Congress to increase the government's borrowing limit, warning the Treasury Department will exhaust its so-called extraordinary measures in October.

"70% of Democrats thought it was way, way, way higher than it really was," Maher said. "Liberal media has to take a little responsibility for that. For scaring the s--t out of people.

"The battle to raise the government's borrowing limit carries big risks for state and local officials, the White House said in a fact sheet obtained by the Associated Press. With the total debt standing at $28.5 trillion, the government would be forced to slash federal programs unless the cap is either suspended or lifted.

The Treasury Department began implementing extraordinary measures to keep the government running after the debt limit was reinstated in August around $22 trillion – about $6 trillion less than the actual level. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has warned Congress the federal government will run out of cash to pays its bills sometime in October."

They really do hate americans -

Three hundred million Americans must ensure their homeland complies with the expectations of “brave” foreign migrants, not the needs of their own families, according to a “Citizenship Day” video by President Joe Biden.

“Citizenship Day is a reminder that the job of every single one of us is to ensure that America remains a country worthy of immigrants’ aspirations,” Biden said in a September 17 video.

Biden ignored 300 million Americans’ concerns, accomplishments, and right to a national labor market.

He instead praised migrants — including millions of illegal migrants — who are being invited by his government to compete for the jobs, careers, wages, and housing needed by Americans:

Every immigrant comes here from different circumstances and for different reasons, but they all have one thing in common: Courage. It takes courage to leave behind all you’ve ever known and start a new life in America.

Biden also described illegal migrants who took jobs from Americans as saviors of hapless Americans, saying they “carried our country on their backs throughout this pandemic.”

Legal and illegal migrants do a minority of the work in nearly all job categories.

‘New Durham indictment exposes second leg of Hillary Clinton's Russia collusion dirty trick’
Indictment alleges Democrat lawyer was paid by Clinton campaign to develop documents on alleged Russia collusion computer link to Trump and give it to FBI in final days of election despite concerns it was a 'red herring'

“Nearly two years after evidence emerged that the infamous Steele dossier was a political dirty trick filled with Russian disinformation and disproved allegations, Special Counsel John Durham unloaded a new indictment that exposes a parallel effort by Hillary Clinton's campaign to flood the FBI with more dubious Trump-Russia collusion dirt”.........

“Slowly over five years, the Russia collusion story has been exposed for what it was: a three-legged political dirty trick in which highly credible figures with deep law enforcement, intelligence and news media ties were paid by the Clinton campaign to flood the FBI with unproven allegations that Trump was secretly colluding with Russia to steal the election from Clinton.

1) The effort was launched after Clinton's campaign funded a poll in 2015 showing her own ties to Russia and Moscow money paid to her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, were threatening her path to the presidency, according to documents made public last year in "Fallout," a book by this reporter and coauthor Seamus Bruner.

The first leg of the collusion narrative was run by Steele, who used his MI-6 credentials and his prior ties to the FBI and high-ranking DOJ official Bruce Ohr to walk in his infamous dossier to U.S. law enforcement and intelligence in the summer of 2016. The FBI ultimately concluded Steele's dossier was riddled with Russian disinformation and disproved evidence.
—-
2) The second leg was Sussmann, who crafted information from computer experts supporting Hillary Clinton into the tale of the Alfa Bank server back door. That narrative was flagged by Sussmann's team as unlikely even before he pitched it to the FBI, according to the indictment, and the theory was ultimately dismissed by the FBI and Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller. "It wasn't true," Mueller testified to Congress in 2019.
——
3) And the third leg of the dirty trick consisted of the efforts of federal bureaucrats inside the FBI, State Department and intelligence community — many of whom disliked Trump — who managed to deceive the FISA court, the Congress and the American public, often by using leaks to news media outlets to sustain a collusion story that had fallen apart within weeks of Steele's first approach.

Fri, September 17, 2021, 11:30 PM
(Bloomberg) -- Europe is bracing for a tough winter as an energy crisis that’s been years in the making leaves the continent relying on the vagaries of the weather.

Faced with surging gas and electricity prices, countries from the U.K. to Germany will need to count on mild temperatures to get through the heating season. Europe is short of gas and coal and if the wind doesn’t blow, the worst-case scenario could play out: widespread blackouts that force businesses and factories to shut.

The unprecedented energy crunch has been brewing for years, with Europe growing increasingly dependent on intermittent sources of energy such as wind and solar while investments in fossil fuels declined. Environmental policy has also pushed some countries to shut their coal and nuclear fleets, reducing the number of power plants that could serve as back-up in times of shortages.

“It could get very ugly unless we act quickly to try to fill every inch of storage,” said Marco Alvera, chief executive officer of Italian energy infrastructure company Snam SpA. “You can survive a week without electricity, but you can’t survive without gas.”

Energy demand is rising from the U.S. to Europe and Asia as economies recover from the global pandemic, boosting industrial activity and fueling concerns about inflation. Prices are so high in Europe that two major fertilizer producers announced they were shutting plants or curtailing production in the region.

And it’s not just businesses. Governments are also concerned about the blow to households already contending with higher costs of everything from food to transport. As power and gas prices break records day after day, Spain, Italy, Greece and France are all stepping in to protect consumers from inflation.

“It will be expensive for consumers, it will be expensive for big energy users,” Dermot Nolan, a former chief executive officer of U.K. energy regulator Ofgem, said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “Electricity and gas prices are going to be higher at home than everybody would want and they are going to be higher than they have been for about 12 years.”

Europe’s gas prices have more than tripled this year as top supplier Russia has been curbing the additional deliveries the continent needs to refill its depleted storage sites after a cold winter last year. It’s been hard to get hold of alternative supplies, with North Sea fields undergoing heavy maintenance after pandemic-induced delays, and Asia scooping up cargoes of liquefied natural gas to meet rising demand there.

Higher gas prices boosted the cost of producing electricity as renewables faltered. Low wind speeds forced European utilities to burn expensive coal, depleting stockpiles of the dirtiest of fossil fuels. Energy policy also played a role, with the cost of polluting in the European Union surging more than 80% this year.

“Gas supply is short, coal supply is short and renewables aren’t going great, so we are now in this crazy situation,” said Dale Hazelton, head of thermal coal at Wood Mackenzie Ltd. “Coal companies just don’t have supply available, they can’t get the equipment, the manufacturers are backed up and they don’t really want to invest.”

That's odd no mention of the benefit to americans, oh ya they don't like working americans, disgraceful to take food from the mouths of our working poor, money from their pockets in supressing wages, money for schools gobbled up and more and more -

The post includes data and studies that suggest providing undocumented immigrants with legal permanent residence would allow them to apply for jobs that better suit their skill sets, raise their wages and lead to improved their language skills, education and health.

Looks like something gave way in the election audit, and the Proggycrats are peeved.

So Emery, I'm sure you know who George Soros is. A big Commiecrat backer. Lets see if he bought and election, as well as a sheriff.

Now thats funny, the dressmakers who cater to the anointed wokesters does not pay their tax and have the nerve to say tax the rich when they are stealing from their workers. Perfect partners for the littlest commie congresscreitter. Now who does that remind me of.....?

Most of luxe-living James’ arrears center on Cultural Brokerage Agency, an LLC she formed in 2011 to serve as the parent company of her fashion brand, which today is known as Brother Vellies. It’s a favorite of people like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Meghan Markle.

The company racked up three open tax warrants in New York state for failing to withhold income taxes from employees’ paychecks totaling $14,798, the state Department of Taxation and Finance told The Post. The debts — which were incurred before the pandemic — stem from 2018 and 2019. The company has been hit with 15 warrants in total since 2015.

The company got into a deeper hole with the feds. Between April 2018 and April 2019, the Internal Revenue Service placed six federal liens on Cultural Brokerage Agency totaling $103,220. The liens specifically cite the company’s failure to remit employee payroll taxes.

"Just because they take it out of your paycheck doesn’t mean they’re sending it to the government," David Cenedella, a Baruch College taxation lecturer explained after reviewing the liens. "It’s certainly not something you want. I would not say your average business out there has this. Something went wrong."

While James apparently has no problem stiffing the Taxman, she isn’t shy about taking money from taxpayers — her company received in $41,666 in pandemic relief aid.

Over the years Cultural Brokerage Agency has also faced multiple legal challenges as a result of habitual nonpayment of worker benefits.

In October 2019 the state Worker’s Compensation Board slapped the company with a $17,000 fine for not carrying worker’s-comp insurance between March 2017 and February 2018. The company currently owes $62,722 and no payments have been received to date, a rep for the board told The Post. Workers’ comp is paid out when an employee is hurt at work and misses time.

Ex-staffers blasted the operation as a sweatshop that relied on legions of unpaid interns working full-time jobs.

"I experienced a lot of harassment when I worked for her," one former contract employee told The Post. "Aurora would ask me to do things that were not in anyone’s job description, like scheduling her gynecological appointments. The work environment was so hostile that I was afraid to ask for my check." The employee was ultimately terminated.

We know one got spotted, and removed.

Just like the good ol' days of the Tea Party rallies. Infiltrators were the problems.

LIBS were so sure the Tea Party were out for trouble.
And not one arrest. The rally spot was always cleaner the before they got there.
Can a LIB claim the same record? (Frisco park a real dump after the crowds of "Earth Day")

Don @ 7:06 pm; the maker of the gown.

AOC attacked the attacks on her as racism, of course. She also defended using the dress maker as AN IMMIGRANT WOMAN OF COLOR, which means she not only is above criticism, if you criticize the dress you are a xenophobic white bad person.

It’s true. The poor immigrant opposed woman is Black, she is female, and she is from....drumroll please......she is from Toronto. Immigrant true, but we usually don’t think of Canada when referring to the poor black female immigrants. Haiti maybe, not Ca-Na-Da. At least she does not have to learn the language her. :)

When someone tweeted the gown looked like a take out bag from Chick-fil-A, I can’t get that imagine out of my head.

You know what I would like to see a politician do George? I want someone to recreate the federal government with a plan on how to streamline government so that it actually works efficiently. I mean besides the departments of state, war, treasury, justice, and interior what else is necessary that can’t be done at the state level?

Queen Nan Goes to England! LOL!!!!
She also rewrites a famous quote.
https://defiantamerica.com/video-nancy-pelosi-visits-the-north-of-england-and-is-given-a-proper-northern-welcome-by-locals/

"Nancy Pelosi remarked: “We were reminded of it last week when we saw the anniversary of 9/11. Benjamin Franklin said ‘Freedom and security – if you don’t have both, you don’t have either’ And that’s what this is all about”"

Emery should remind her that it's "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

Then Queen Nan gets a nice welcome crowd.
" ” Trump won!… You’re not welcome here… Go back to Epstein Island!… We don’t want you!… The whole world knows that Trump won the 2020 election!”"

"A group of very young Trump supporters hilariously trolled Joe Biden in Shanksville, PA over the weekend – much to the horror of Biden’s handlers.

Joe posed with the children for a photo, blissfully unaware that the kids were all decked out in pro-Trump gear."

Walt, 9:25 and 9:40 pm.

Did you know that Ben Franklin once advocated for having Canada and Ireland included in the new nation? The Imperialist Franklin quoted by the Imperialist Queen Nan of French Laundry. But, at least Franklin did not want to see the French flag flying over Canada. Cost too much in blood in treasure to drive them out in the previous war. :)

Gotta love the kid on the end wearing the Trump as Terminator ‘I’ll Be Bach’ red tee shirt. Such a delighted mischievous child.
Have you noticed in all the pics we never see Joe Biden’s right hand? Noticed to the older girl in other pics is where Joe Biden choice to stand. Probably much ado about nothing.

BarryP 756am - Don't a politician can accomplish that. Such a government was already anticipated in and enabled by our Constitution. It was the power-grabbing, vote-buying politicians that added on all cobwebs and entanglements of a perennially growing government. It would require a constitutional convention to get us back to basics, but it's hard to predict what will come out of a convened constitutional convention if one were ever to be held again.

Tanking in only 8 months -

Biden’s poll numbers are tanking on the heels of a controversial vaccine mandate, an inflated economy, a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, and a drone strike that killed 10 innocent Afghan civilians, including seven children.

The left loves them some race baiting. Of course this truth will not play on mainstream at much less than the lie got played -

It was not until nearly two months later that I learned what had been reported was wildly inaccurate. Programs like the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) No Place for Hate had been quick to brand the teenagers on the team as racist but it was a 40-year-old man named Luke Serna that had brought the tortillas. He has been described by the townspeople as a Coronado alum who had not been to a game all year, a latino, a president of a local union and a political activist with ties to the island’s left-wing groups that advocate for critical race theory (CRT). It was this man who told the players, cheerleaders and fans to throw the tortillas in the air in celebration if Coronado won.
