So this isnt new pattern


This central section of the Electoral Count Act has been significantly criticized. It is a "mammoth section some 814 words in length"[3]:n.8 that makes for difficult parsing, and "[m]any of its substantive rules are set out in a single sentence that is 275 words long."[3]:543

.Ignatz. I am watching an old TV series Wings on Youtube, which is about the Royal Flying Corps in early WWI. Shows the observers using Winchester rifles against a German aircraft whose observer is using a machine on a moveable mount.

--"Judge won’t try Black man in courtroom with white portraits"--

Seems like a pretty short step from there to separate but equal juries and judges.
The irony is not that the progs are apparently intent on returning Jim Crow. Seeing and dividing people by race is what they do. It's that this time they have brilliantly come up with the excuse it's to make up for past wrongs...like Jim Crow.

--Shows the observers using Winchester rifles against a German aircraft whose observer is using a machine on a moveable mount.--

How much success did they have?
Since they said their largest drone had a wingspan of 8 feet that's like removing the rest of the WWI plane and trying to his the propeller flying through the sky by itself.
Not impossible but any poacher would be better off hightailing it into the bush until the drone's battery croaks I would think.

New York State has passed an automatic voter registration law, which automatically enrolls as a registered voter any person who interacts with one of several agencies, including the DMV, disability, the Department of Health or the Department of Labor which deals with unemployment will automatically be a registered voter. Just what we needed to make the state even bluer than blue.

BREAKING: Per @PatrickByrne on the @intheMatrixxx podcast — They learned during their 4 1/2 hour meeting at the WH that all of the information that they had been providing to @realDonaldTrump “For His Eyes Only” had not been reaching him.

Byrne states that they have OVER 50,000

2/ affidavits from Americans around the country on both sides of the political spectrum about mischief that was witnessed on November 3rd. Confirms that they compiled and delivered an entire package of evidence and brought it back to the WH, which [presumably Trump’s Senior staff

3/ and WH counsel] will not provide to him.

@PatrickByrne then announces that he will be posting that very package ONLINE “so that America can see, in a very organized way, all of the evidence. There is ABSOLUTELY foreign interference”. Will be posted to DeepCapture.com

4/ Byrne also then points to the Joint FBI + CISA report on Oct. 30th, 2020 which found that an Iranian based actor was “attempting to exploit websites to obtain copies of voter registration data ... CISA & the FBI can confirm that the actor successfully obtained voter

5/ registration data in at least one state.”

Having said that, like him, I'm not sure I understand the powerful anti-vaccine sentiment.

30+ years of Dem and MSM (and occasionally GOP) attacks on “big Pharma”

Years of lies and distortions and failures by the same experts and elites and bureaucrats pushing the vaccine now

Vaccines developed super-quickly with conflicting info on testing and side effects.

It’s a wonder more people aren’t opposed to them, and I can’t blame them.

On the assurance the skilled nursing staff where my mother lives is prepared to treat any side effects I gave them permission to start her on the vaccine on Monday. Being in constant lockdowns benefits no one.

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/12/joe_biden_tells_americans_our_darkest_days_are_ahead_of_us.html

COVID, after all, has empowered blue-state governors and blue-city mayors with power beyond all of their wildest dreams. It's allowed public health officials to shut down the mighty U.S. economy, much to China's delight. It's allowed teachers unions to dump teaching and take a break with ZOOM, too bad if the science doesn't support their claims about kids spreading COVID or the kids stop showing up, commit suicide, lose chances to make friends, or flunk. It's made Democrat-donating billionaires, such as Jeff Bezos, very, very rich, sweeping out his bothersome upstart competition. Power's where it's at baby, and perpetuating it. Joe Biden is just the rickety vehicle to give it.

As for the rest of us, just slops and $600 gruel.

A powerful COVID lobby has emerged, COVID now, COVID forever, and too bad about all the lost small businesses. Above all, it enables Biden, who was never elected honestly, to cast all blame for his coming failures, (premised on the hard fact that he's the man the voters wanted), on President Trump, who may well be his opponent in 2024.

I personally doubt Trump will run again in ‘24 but the rest of this is spot on.

Jane

I don’t object to Bezo’s profiting. (Of course he is a fry=iend of a friend). But starting that company had nothing to do with fake COVID and was nothing short of brilliant. (Of course if he doesn’t send my friend a mansion in Spain for Christmas, I might change my mind.)

It got beautiful here. Now if we only had water,

“ Rhymes with Bezos.”

Not to mention all those pandemic billionaires in the Forbes piece upthread. And much of those riches are driven not so much by genuine medical benefits, but in the vain hope that the vaccines and other treatments will hasten the jackboots off of our necks.

--I don’t object to Bezo’s profiting.--

No person who enjoys political and economic freedom objects to people profiting from providing a good or service someone voluntarily pays for in the free market.
The objection is to vast conglomerates and the richest of the rich profiting from their connections to free money and the government arbitrarily or intentionally wiping out their competition through anti-competitive laws and regs.

Jane, we have Graham Nash's book "Wild Tales" that mentions Peter Bocking in the early years. Nash writes of Bocking fondly, saying that teenage bands often don't last. Nash was impressed that Bocking had a Fender Stratocaster. Nash said he thought..."Good God! A Stratocaster!"
I'll bring the book to you the next time we visit.

jimmyk

Apparently, NYC can do worse than DiBlasio

No, I don't think that's possible. I'll wait to hear what Yang's ideas are, but they cannot be worse than letting inmates out of prison, not arresting criminals, out-Cuomoing Cuomo on lockdowns, and DeBlasio's view that if his policies drive high-income people out of the city, that's good in itself, not just an unfortunate side effect.

My impression is Yang would not agree with any of that, but we'll see.

Marlene

On topic! If Ivanka and Jared move to Florida, I hope she primaries Rubio. I don't need to deal with a RINO in Florida. Been there, done that in Maine. My super secret D.C. source said that Rubio seems to be malleable. Great word! The other FL Senator (Rick Scott) voted against the now vetoed Covid bill.

The important thing to do is have them digitally scanned by someone who knows what they are doing.

Then add to the digital caption as much as you can about your father, where he went, and what he was taking pictures of.

You can give kids digital copies on USB thumb drives. and put the originals in a labeled archival box to be passed on down the family after you die.

PUK reference...

“ The Hollies originated as a duo formed by Allan Clarke and Graham Nash, who were best friends from primary school and began performing together during the skiffle craze of the late 1950s.[4] Eventually Clarke and Nash became a vocal and guitar duo modelled on American duo the Everly Brothers under the names "Ricky and Dane Young."[4] Under this name, they teamed up with a local band, the Fourtones, consisting of Pete Bocking on guitar, John 'Butch' Mepham on bass, Keith Bates on drums, and Derek Quinn on guitar.”

lyle
First, I want to say I know how difficult it is. Caring for my family members that are in an age range from just over one to and all the way up to ninety-six has been extraordinarily difficult. Because the children have been pulled out of preschool and have no playgroups, they don’t see anyone else. So that’s been very difficult. My parents have gotten deeply depressed by the level of social isolation. They haven’t been out of the house in ten months. They haven’t seen their son. They haven’t seen their grandchildren. I know every American has been struggling.

Who said this? No peeking!
