Quite the scenes on Capitol Hill right now. As news photos go this is something else.

 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE

By Pete Moore On January 6th, 2021 at 4:44 pm

Posting might be light from me for a few days. In fact they’ve been light because of work, but that’s in the past. I suddenly have other matters to attend to now. Play nicely.

Rudy

Here is a good piece to give the Historical background of what is happening Jan 6th in Congress.

No matter what side of the issue you are on, or what you feel about Rudy. This is not a plea for either side it’s an explanation of how this works.

You don’t have to agree with either side to learn how it works.

This not a political piece.

Never any fraud,,,,,,,

A former U.S. Congressman was charged in July with “stuffing” the ballot boxes in 2014, 2015 and 2016 primary elections.

According to prosecutors, Michael “Ozzie” Myers (D-Penn.) conspired with and bribed the former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division, Domenick J. Demuro, who oversaw all federal and local elections in his area.

Demuro pleaded guilty.

Here’s how prosecutors say the operation worked. (These allegations are accusations and are not considered proven in a court of law.)

Myers acted as a “consultant” for federal, state and local political candidates, including some running for judgeships.

Myers used a portion of his “consulting fees” to bribe Demuro and others “in return for tampering with election results.”

The payments to Demuro ranged from $300 to $5,000 per election.

Demuro would “illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual party [Democrats] in primary elections.”

Demuro would “add fraudulent votes on the voting machine – also known as ‘ringing up’ votes” for Myers’ clients and preferred candidates.”

At Myers’ direction, Demuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during Election Day, and then would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate. 

Myers, now in his 70s, was expelled from Congress in 1980 after reportedly taking a bribe in the infamous FBI Abscam case.

ROCK ON ROCKALL

The first casualty of Brexit?

Rockall is an uninhabited island in the North Atlantic Ocean claimed by Britain in 1955 Ireland does not recognize the UK's claim, although it has never sought to claim sovereignty for itself. The consistent position of successive Irish Governments has been that Rockall and similar rocks and skerries have no significance for establishing legal claims to mineral rights in the adjacent seabed or to fishing rights in the surrounding seas: Link

Today a Marine Scotland Patrol Boat prevented a Donegal trawler from fishing within 12

nautical miles of Rockall:

It should be interesting to see how such moves are reciprocated for British flights flying west

over Irish airspace.

WELL DONE TO ALL INVOLVED

From beginning to end, three innocents were murdered because extreme left wing ideology runs amok.

A man who stabbed three people to death in a Reading park believed he was carrying out “an act of religious jihad”, a court has heard.

He arrived, to stink up the country, as a so-called “refugee”. His application was denied but he was not deported. For years he was repeatedly arrested and convicted of criminal offences, but still he was not deported because fifth columnist lefty lawyers used left wing laws top keep him here.

He then murdered three innocents.

Take a bow, all who aided and abetted him.

CHINA IS CHINA

By Pete Moore On January 5th, 2021 at 6:57 pm

“Today we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalised the necessary permissions for the team’s arrival in China. I am very disappointed with this news given that two members had already begun their journeys & others were not able to travel at the last minute”

 – Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General, World Health Organisation

A year ago the Chinese Communist Party deliberately lied to the WHO. The CCP said that its virus could not spread from human to human. It knew otherwise and delierately ingected the world. Today it still demonstrates that it is a rogue, evil regime.

The civilised world should stand together in oppsition and defiance to the CCP. Instead the EU cozies up to the CCP with investment deals and the New York Times publishes its latest pro-CCP propaganda.

China is China. It is ruled by an evil, expansionist iron fist. Those who treat with it knowingly treat with evil.

I received word yesterday that I had been given a vaccination appointment. I am not a ‘specially vulnerable’ person, neither am I a member of a group who, because of their race, ethnic origin, skin colour, work, or some other statistic anomaly; claim that their needs are greater than mine. Nope, I qualify for one reason only, that being the date on which I was born: I am in my eighth decade. I welcome the news, because I will be less of a threat to the health of my wife, who is an ‘especially vulnerable person’, and because, in two or three weeks time, I shall be able to meet face to face with my three grandsons. My brother, along with his wife, have already received the first dose, and are awaiting their second appointment date.

Multiply me by around ten million, and you get some idea of the mammoth task awaiting hospital senior staff and general practitioners the length and breadth of these Islands. I shall be receiving the Pfizer vaccine, located and administered in some god-forsaken village miles from where i live; that site chosen possibly because it has a large parking area convenient to the surgery; along with sufficient reliable freezer capacity. When the home-grown AstraZeneca product becomes available, the necessity of freezer capacity falls away, and the distribution effort can and should be ramped up on a logarithmic basis, with vaccine availability being available through local pharmacies and G.P. Surgeries nationwide: on an age-basis only, with no special treatment apart from Frontline NHS staff and Care Home staff and residents alone.

A Confederacy of Dunces

Tomorrow is Election Day in the Georgia Senate runoff. It’s a big deal.

In years past, Republicans just had to show up in order to collect their victory. Suddenly, that’s not true anymore. The Dems are seriously organized. The organizers have registered plenty of new voters. Their voters will show up. Many have already, as early voters.

Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are unintentionally doing all they can to help the Democrats. McConnell has blocked the larger stimulus checks that lots of Georgians need. Trump has cast doubt on the election process itself, saying that an honorable ( Republican ) official, Mr. Raffensberger, knows about mass fraud and is doing nothing about it. It’s a lie, but lots of rubes believe it.

If you were a working class Republican voter who could use an aid check, and who has been convinced by the likes of Trump and Lin Wood that the election process, one overseen by Republicans, is fraudulent, why would you bother to vote? Lin Wood has publicly asked Republicans not to vote!

I don’t like any of the four candidates, for different reasons. It’s a pity all four can’t lose.

If I lived there, I’d vote, but I’d hold my nose when doing so.

This race is no sure thing. But if the Democrats win tomorrow, there will be two reasons. One is that the Dems worked their ass off to seize it. The second is that the leader of the Republican Party has committed political malpractice on a grand scale, by casting doubt on a process that his people needed to enthusiastically participate in.

May the least bad candidates win.
