Dr. Rebane.

It will take a populist movement, which scares the living daylights of the Surveillance Security State. Iliberals

No good belly aching about R cheap suits that fold like the cheap suits they are and fight like a soggy pretzel. The only solution is a populist movement which they can not control. A movement that will get back back where we started a bit before Trump and let the voters in the various states clean out the trash. R trash, D trash, R’s first. Think we are back where the people started.

Punchy many moons ago dismissed Trump’s winning the WH as a populist movement. Actually, quite insightful. The Party ain’t going to take us there so its up to the millions upon millions of little guys to get the job done.

While I don’ t endear myself to the word ‘populist’ or ‘populist movement’ or held populists in high regard, I now be a populist. No one else we send to DC as a group seems willing to have the fortitude.

That’s my solution. It got moms across the nation to attend their first ever school board meeting. Whether my solution will work remains to be seen. We ‘the people’ have a hell of more votes than the bureaucratic state has…and that’s the only thing they cannot control.

PS: It’s time for Mitch to step up to the plate again. He is blowing perfect timing. They are sitting there out in the open, Mitch.

It’s ok fish. You time in the penalty box is almost over. I don’t think Dr. Rebane will heave you off the island, but Punchy will try to get you voted off the island for NOT USING YOUR NAME! Until you use your real name Psul with have no respect for you. Man, that is a harsh punishment. Here is a bone to ease the pain.

“Fauci has resigned. I'm guessing it's so he has time to prepare with his lawyers for his appearance at the 2023 Nuremberg Code trials.”

https://twitter.com/johnrich/status/1561735042669371395?

Conservative lawyer Harmeet K. Dhillon wrote, “Fauci catalyzed a massive loss of liberty for millions. Thanks to made-up policies—children uneducated, people fired for refusing experimental drug, offices & churches closed, productivity lost, Biden elected, big Pharma rich, Fauci’s work is done. How do we get our freedom back?”

Meghan McCain tweeted in response to a person who asked why people “hate/love Dr. Fauci so much” following news he was leaving.

“Because he kept kids masked, isolated and out of school with little to no science backing it ~ and now god knows the negative longterm ramifications we will see on this generation,” McCain wrote. “He put adults well being over children and I will never forgive it.”

“Dr. Fauci is the most destructive bureaucrat in United States history. His “leadership” on covid will — in the decades ahead — come to be seen as one of the greatest and most destructive failures in our nation’s history. He belongs in prison.” Clay Travis.

“Wow, Dr. Fauci says he'll resign just a few days before Republicans possibly retake Congress. What a coincidence. Hold the #hearings anyways“ Glenn Beck

The Unexpected Future
We need to consider ways to reverse or at least slow rapid depopulation

https://quillette.com/2022/08/20/the-unexpected-future/

BT - good link. That led me to the one about 'liberal vs conservative' which I found to have a lot of false choices based on bad ideas.
https://quillette.com/2022/08/09/liberal-when-we-can-conservative-when-we-must/
I consider myself as a classic liberal and a conservative in the modern political sense. These are not incompatible at all. Letting people across the border en mass is not being 'liberal' at all. It is either being extreme libertarian (to the point of anarchy) or it is just a pure political play, depending on the individual allowing it.
The Dems would be ordering the Border Patrol to use machine guns to shoot women and children dead if they were flooding in from countries that would auger a massive shift to a population voting for Rs. They are not 'liberal' in any sense. The idea that as a land of plenty libs allow a flood of immigrants because we "have so much" is BS. We have laws and are obliged as a society to follow them. This is not contradictory to the idea of being a liberal in any way.
The bleeding hearts are just leftists plain and simple. "I want to help so let's make someone else pay the bill" - that's all it is.
When have any of the lefties that post here ever shown that they are willing to or are anticipating lowering their standard of living permanently so as to allow the full effect their pet left wing ideas to have force in our country? Never.
In fact, the whole idea of letting people flood in unchecked goes completely against their silly concepts of "environmentalism".
This is not conservative vs liberal - it is the modern logical man vs the post modern self-based egoist.

‘Biden White House facilitated DOJ's criminal probe against Trump, scuttled privilege claims: memos’
"I have therefore decided not to honor the former President's 'protective' claim of privilege," acting National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall wrote Trump's team in May.

“Long before it professed no prior knowledge of the raid on Donald Trump's estate, the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to instigate the criminal probe into alleged mishandling of documents, allowing the FBI to review evidence retrieved from Mar-a-Lago this spring and eliminating the 45th president's claims to executive privilege, according to contemporaneous government documents reviewed by Just the News.”

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/all-things-trump/biden-white-house-facilitated-dojs-criminal-probe-against-trump

And here I believed Biden when he said he found out about the RAID just like we all did…on TV. Silly me. You have to be really messed up to believe that line of bull. Yep, it just shows you how crazy I can get, being a recovering libhole and all. Should put me in the rubber room for believing that load of horse pucky.

Spin City: PBS Reporter Claims 74% Say US Is ‘On The Wrong Track’ Because They Fear Trump’s Return (ROLMAO!)

“PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor claimed on Monday that poor polling numbers — namely polls saying that nearly three-fourths of Americans believe the country is “on the wrong track” — were clear indicators that the American people were afraid former President Donald Trump would return to the White House.

Alcindor joined an MSNBC panel to discuss the recent NBC News poll — which had 74% of respondents saying they believed the country was headed “in the wrong direction” and just 21% saying that things were going well.“

Racists and sowing the seeds of their own self-destruction, too bad good ol' randi is reelected for the 8th time. The teachers' unions are sacrificing our kids on the altar of their socialist-marxist manifestos. -

Helen Rella, an employment and labor attorney, said, "It’s trying to remedy past discrimination with present discrimination, and it’s inappropriate."

"You will create a hostile work environment where racial animas is very prevalent in schools," he said.

Kimberly Hermann, general counsel for the Southeastern Legal Foundation told Fox News Digital, "The contract between Minneapolis Public Schools and the local teachers union… is unconstitutional… and sets our country back decades in race relations."

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/08/22/sources-gsa-packed-boxes-documents-trump-took-mar-a-lago-not-political-staffers/

The memos show then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in conversations with the FBI, DOJ and National Archives as early as April, shortly after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were voluntarily returned to the federal historical agency from Trump’s Florida home.

By May, Su conveyed to the Archives that President Joe Biden would not object to waiving his predecessor’s claims to executive privilege, a decision that opened the door for DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena compelling Trump to turn over any remaining materials he possessed from his presidency.

“The only remaining hope is that the existential pain in America’s wallets remains sufficiently intense so that people will seek something different at the ballot box this Fall.”
—Rebane Rebane on his closing remarks to this post, ‘Double Dummies on Daily Display‘

While this is may or may not be on topic, pain is a great motivator. Being sick and tired of being sick and tired as the saying goes. “If speaking of faith drives people away from self help groups, then pain drives them back.”—an altered version of something I once heard.

Apologies if this has been posted before.

Black students are not enrolled in as high a percentage on college campuses as whites. So blacks must be particularly pissed that here is free money for the taking, and blacks will be unable to participate as much as they do in other welfare schemes.

I am awaiting the other shoe to fall. Look for Joe to declare an adder, that will make up for white supremacy treatment of blacks. It will be on the honor system. If you, a black person, did not obtain a loan and did not go to college, how much should you expect other U.S. citizens to pay you? Must be less than 150% of the amount that you WOULD have borrowed had you gone to college.

Biden Shops For Critical Minerals In Canada While Shutting Down Mining Projects On American Soil

Here's California Flooring It to the 'Clean' Energy Future ... With Its Transmission Slipping Badly

CALIFORNIA CITY -- California's precariously out-of-date hybrid power grid can't handle the state's growing amounts of solar and wind energy coming online, with system managers already forcing repeated cutbacks in renewables and a continued reliance on conventional energy to keep the grid stable, according to state data.

The shortcomings of the transmission grid, which energy consultants in this bellwether state have warned about for years, raise the prospect that marquee products of the growing battery economy such as electric vehicles – "emission free" on the road – will be recharged mainly from traditional electricity-generating power plants: energy from fossil fuels, some of it from out of state.

Writ large, the transmission problem threatens the zero-carbon future envisioned by green advocates nationwide. “We’re headed toward duplicate systems whose only benefit is to permit the occasional use of ‘clean power,’” said Grant Ellis, an independent electrical engineering consultant in Texas.

‘Morally Reprehensible’: Ben Shapiro Bashes Biden Admin For Attacking Business Owners Who Criticized Student Loan Bailout

The Estonian Fox

I haven't seen this item addressed in the $10,000 student loan business.

See irs.gov, Topic No. 431:

"In general, if you have cancellation of debt income because your debt is canceled, forgiven, or discharged for less than the amount you must pay, the amount of the canceled debt is taxable and you must report the canceled debt on your tax return for the year the cancellation occurs."

Since this is a forgiveness of a legitimate loan, that would be counted as income that the debtors would have to declare as imputed income on their IRS forms next year. Those 80,000 agents may have their hands full tracking all of the $10K forgiveness.

Wait a minute though!!
Later in the same No. 431:
"EXCEPTIONS to Cancellation of Debt Income:"

"Any amounts discharged from certain federal, private or educational student loans."

But still, I don't know if Biden's exec order specifically allowed that this was an exception to certain forgiven loans counted as income.

to EFox 5:10 - yeah, myself.

Financial advisor said this forgiveness by the GOVT, of govt debt, would not be counted as income for a 1040. Loans from a BANK were not forgiven though.

This sleight-of-hand of forgiven debt, not being counted as income for a 1040, was hidden in one of the extensive spending bills passed in the last 18 months.

If the liberals would adopt my policy (welfare and debt forgiveness should be as easy to get as VA benefits), this would be a kinder country.
