When the effort is no longer profitable...
Seems HHS is trying to find ways to change its compliance/enforcement of 1st A and religious freedom issues.
Putin wants to test his might against Canadian geese than Russian bears. He may, however, instead meet his match if he did so.And how are they going to get a supply chain long enough to get their troops and equipment down to the parts of Canada almost everyone lives in?
And again, why would Russia want to invade Canada to begin with?
Even if that is true, how much of it do you think was stored for it to be usable decades later? Or not obsolete?
Yeah, just like Napoleon just had to take Moscow and Russia would stop fighting OH WAIT.
No they didn't; they were invited to both regions by a majority of the local population, who took issue with the fact that the Ukranian government had been violently overthrown by extremists who did not have their best interests in mind.
I mean, Nazi Germany was invited by Austria.
Hmmm.....And Scotland invited England in too. They needed to fight tooth and nail to chuck them out and keep their independence until the unions of the crowns. Also as I remember the Romans invited Germans to live among them...
I see a pattern
What vote rigging and shady tactics? Seriously; anti-Russia diehards keep claiming that's what happened, but I've never seen anyone present proof of it beyond "it's the Russians; what other evidence do you need?". Meanwhile, people in the Crimea and Donbas regions were overwhelmingly in favor of the government that was violently overthrown, and have always been very pro-Russia. In short, I think you're the one who needs to deal with the fact that the facts aren't on your side here.No matter what you claim, that still counts as an invasion. And given the clear vote rigging and shady tactics, I very much doubt that. And invading while being "invited" is literally the same trick the Russians have done in other countries such as Georgia. Russians invaded another country, deal with it.
No; people who murder journalists and political rivals to aquire power and maintain their grip on it are violent extremists. Which is what the current illegitimate government of Ukraine have been doing. Also if you honestly think they didn't want their country as a puppet by a foreign power, you're a fool; they just want said foreign power to be someone other than Russia, whom western Ukrainians (unlike eastern and Crimean Ukrainians, who outvoted them to put the pro-Russia Yanukovych into power) despise.And people who don't want their country as a puppet by a foreign power are violent extremists? Okay, then.
You forgot that wonderful radioactive gift the Russians gave Ukraine up near the Belarusian border, that has its own exclusion zone. Ukrainians have never really forgiven Russia for what they allowed to happen at Chernobyl.What vote rigging and shady tactics? Seriously; anti-Russia diehards keep claiming that's what happened, but I've never seen anyone present proof of it beyond "it's the Russians; what other evidence do you need?". Meanwhile, people in the Crimea and Donbas regions were overwhelming in favor of the government that was violently overthrown, and have always been very pro-Russia. In short, I think you're the one who needs to deal with the fact that the facts aren't on your side here.

That they also openly idolize Nazi Germany doesn't help either; nor does the fact that they keep getting caught embezzling to enrich themselves.
Russia isn't a new Nazi Germany and will not go full Lebensbraum unless the US is out. It's a non-danger UNLESS PROVOKED.
ALL COUNTRIES WHO NEIGHBOR RUSSIA WHO GOT PARTS ANNEXED IT WAS BECAUSE THEY BECAME EXCESSIVELY USA-EU FRIENDLY.
End of off topic.
Returning to the hate news topic. Well this happened :
Compare to Trump in 2019 who visited Soldiers who couldn't be homeI removed my post, because I feel it adds nothing and just continues a derail and fight. If @Terthna desires, I'll continue the discussion in an appropriate thread.
Anyways on Biden, normally I'd just consider it to be impolitic to have a hoity-toity Thanksgiving rather than doing a family one, or doing something in the public eye...but right now I consider it highly inappropriate. He is hobnobbing it with the rich and powerful, while the American people are suffering and may not have a happy holiday.
Biden Thanksgiving menu released by White HousePresident Biden and his family celebrated Thanksgiving at the White House with family while enjoying a traditional holiday menuwww.foxnews.com
And how is this anything he can't have at the White House or at a public event? Might not be as fancy or decadent, but it is still the same food and Biden wouldn't be acting the fool.
November 28, 2021
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) is one of the GOP’s most prolific supporters of President Biden’s far-left, ACLU-type judicial nominees.
Graham’s support for Biden’s court picks comes even as he remains deeply involved with former President Trump.
“He believes presidents who win the election get to appoint judges, subject obviously to extreme cases, and I think he’s following through on it,” said Russell Wheeler, a fellow with the Brookings Institution who studies judicial confirmations, The Hill reports.
“He believes presidents who win the election get to appoint judges, subject obviously to extreme cases, and I think he’s following through on it,” said Russell Wheeler, a fellow with the Brookings Institution who studies judicial confirmations.
Graham has touted his willingness to support a president’s judicial nominees even if he doesn’t agree with their philosophy, noting he was one of nine GOP senators who voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s Supreme Court nomination in 2009 and one of five who supported Elena Kagan a year later.
Sotomayor is LaRaza.
“Senator Graham has long believed that under the Constitution the president has the right to select judges of their choosing and as long as they are qualified, they should generally be confirmed by the Senate,” Graham’s office said in a statement.
“This is the traditional and customary role of the Senate in the judicial confirmation process,” it added.
He must be hoping those days will return.
He Didn’t Like These Three
Graham’s support for Biden’s nominees on the Senate floor hasn’t been across the board. Earlier this month, he and every other GOP senator voted against moving Jennifer Sung’s nomination to the 9th Circuit to the floor, forcing Vice President Harris to break a tie to make the nomination available for a vote.
He also opposed the nominations of Myrna Perez and Beth Robinson, who were both selected to serve as U.S. circuit judges on the 2nd Circuit, during votes on the Senate floor.
But Graham’s support for Biden’s other judicial nominees makes him increasingly an outlier within the Senate GOP caucus, where only Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), two well-known moderates, vote for Biden’s judicial nominees on the Senate floor with roughly the same frequency, according to The Hill.
That’s how it used to be but Democrats don’t return the favor.
It’s Always Been His Pattern
Asked about Graham’s willingness to support judicial nominees, Thomas Jipping, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, noted “that’s been his pattern probably as long as he’s been in the Senate.”
Jipping said that during the Obama administration, Graham voted against 5 percent of then-President Obama’s judicial nominees on average, compared to the GOP average of 12 percent, reports The Hill.
Only 13 GOP senators haven’t voted to confirm any of Biden’s judicial nominees.
President Clinton got 30 or more no votes on none of his circuit picks and only 1 percent of district court judges.
Biden, so far, has gotten 30 or more no votes on 89 percent of his appeals and district judges, in what judicial watchers describe as a continuation of ramped up Democratic opposition to Trump’s judicial nominees.
“Most of the Republican conference is voting against most of Biden’s nominees,” Jipping said, noting that the Senate GOP conference was on average opposing nearly 80 percent of Biden’s picks.
That’s because Biden’s picks are mostly far left or very far left. Liberalism is dead. We’re getting crazy Left.
No matter how crazy they are and no matter how much the Left didn’t support Trump’s, Graham supports Biden’s for the most part.
Graham says he’s proud of the 200 judges the Trump administration picked. He voted for them too. He still golfs with Trump and tries to fix the shift between Trump and McConnell. Don’t hold up dinner for that one.
The Biden family offered their services to a huge, Chinese-government-linked energy consortium to expand its business around the world. How do we know? Because of hundreds of emails documenting the deal found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, left in a Delaware repair shop in April 2019. In her new book, “Laptop from Hell,” New York Post columnist Miranda Devine tells the tale:
James Gilliar, a wiry, 56-year-old British ex-SAS officer, got to know Ye Jianming, the 40-year-old chairman of CEFC, when they were both working in the Czech Republic.
CEFC was a Chinese conglomerate, one of the largest energy companies in the world.
Ye’s task at was to spend $1.5 billion as quickly as possible to ensure the Czech Republic would become China’s “Gateway to the European Union,” a priority of President Xi.
To that end, Ye bought everything from a football team and a brewery to an airline, before being named “special economic advisor” to Czech President Milos Zeman.
Now he was looking for an influential partner to help with acquisitions in other locations around the world that had strategic significance for the Chinese state.
Gilliar had an idea who could help: The Biden family.
Gilliar connected with Hunter Biden through trusted Biden family friend Rob Walker, a former Clinton administration official whose wife, Betsy Massey Walker, had been Jill Biden’s assistant when she was Second Lady.
Miranda Devine’s book Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide.
Gilliar emailed Walker in February 2015 to praise Hunter’s appearance in Beijing at a board meeting of the fledgling investment fund Hunter had founded with John Kerry’s son, called BHR.
“Hunter was great,” Gilliar wrote to Walker. “True sheikh of Washington.”
He emailed Hunter a few weeks later: “It has been made clear to me that CEFC wish to engage in further business relations with our group.”
Gilliar knew CEFC was the capitalist arm of President Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative to spread China’s influence — and debt traps — across the world. No Chinese company executed its goals more ardently than CEFC and its young chairman, who was dubbed the “Belt and Road billionaire” in the press.
Chairman Ye had built his provincial energy company into a Fortune 500 colossus virtually overnight, an achievement described by Chinese news agency Caixin as “another great enigma in the miraculous world of Chinese business.” He enjoyed the support of President Xi and was former deputy secretary general of the government’s propaganda arm, the China Association for International Friendly Contacts.
In a rare interview with Caixin at CEFC’s palatial marble headquarters in Shanghai’s upscale French Concession District, Ye is portrayed as a “hermit king” sitting on a golden chair in “a room that resembles a miniature Great Hall of the People.”
Uniformed staff members wearing earpieces glide by. “Most of them were young women wearing smart clothes and bright faces.”
Ye’s face was “as expressionless as a stone statue. Amidst the gilded surroundings, his canvas shoes had an eye-catching plainness. . . .
“In his public activities as a private entrepreneur, Ye Jianming is al- ways walking alongside important foreign political figures. He has been photographed with world leaders such as Israeli President Peres, Turkish President Erdogan, Chadian President Déby, and European Commission President Juncker. He has met with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, and the Prime Minister of Bulgaria held a feast to welcome him.”
In the winter of 2015, Chairman Ye and CEFC Executive Director Jianjun Zang, a.k.a. “Director Zang,” flew to Washington, DC. A meeting with Ye was scheduled in Hunter’s diary for December 7, 2015, in a week that was a swirl of back-to-back Christmas parties hosted by Joe and Jill at the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory.
One of his former associates, who spoke on condition of anonymity, believes that Hunter brought Chairman Ye to meet Joe at one of those parties. There is no indication of any such meeting on the laptop, but Hunter had a pattern of introducing business associates to Joe when they came to DC.
After a frustrating experience in another Chinese deal as a minority partner in private equity firm BHR, in which the payday would not come until the end of the fund’s life, Hunter and his uncle Jim Biden wanted more control of the CEFC partnership and a regular income stream.
Enter Tony Bobulinski. The naval officer turned wealthy institutional investor came highly recommended by Gilliar to build what they planned would be a world-class investment firm, called SinoHawk, named after Hunter’s late brother Beau’s favorite animal, the hawk.

In December 2015, Gilliar tells Bobulinski he needs help structuring a Chinese joint venture for “one of the most prominent families in the United States.”
The plan is to “build an investment firm like Goldman Sachs,” he writes in a WhatsApp message, transcripts of which were obtained separate from the laptop.
“The family is the Biden family,” Gilliar will soon disclose. Joe, who has announced that he will not run for president in 2016, will be actively involved once he leaves office, and the Bidens expect billions of dollars of projects to flow through the company, Gilliar says.
He lets Bobulinski in on the last piece of the puzzle in March 2016: the Bidens’ Chinese partner is CEFC, which has “more money than God,” he writes. “This is the capital arm of one belt one road.”
At about this time, Bobulinski is introduced to Rob Walker, who tells him he is “a proxy for Hunter Biden, Jim Biden and the Bidens around the world.”
Finally, in February 2017, Gilliar sends Bobulinski a WhatsApp message saying he wants to introduce him to his “partner.”
“Who is your partner?” asks Bobulinski.
“Hunter Biden,” replies Gilliar.
Bobulinski is leery. “I understand you want me to . . . help drive things in the US, but Hunter is [already] here.”
Gilliar: “Money there, intent there . . . skill sets missing . . . We need to create the best deal platform in history, and they haven’t got a clue.” Bobulinski doesn’t like the fact Hunter “was kicked out of US Navy for cocaine use.”
“But he’s super smart,” says Gilliar. “Just a lot of under achievers around them using their name. Has a few demons but u are used to those, right?”
Bobulinski asks: “Is he the decision maker or the Chinese?”
Gilliar: “New platform. Best discuss face to face but I’m the driver.”
Later, Bobulinski asks: “Ok who is putting up the $10MM [million]?”
Gilliar: “Joint vehicle — half us and then equally split — money is already in. Discuss more face to face.”
Three weeks after his father left office, in 2017, Hunter flew to Miami with Gilliar and Walker to meet Chairman Ye, who was there for the Miami International Boat Show.
They booked into the $700 a night beachfront Nobu Hotel on Monday, Feb. 13, 2017, and scheduled lunch with the Chinese for Thursday in a private room set for 10 at the Bourbon Steak restaurant in the ritzy JW Marriott Turnberry Resort & Spa, where Ye was staying with his entourage.
But Hunter flew home the day before the lunch. He already had met with Ye, over a private dinner on the Tuesday night, at which the CEFC chairman made him an offer too good to refuse: $10 million a year, for a minimum of three years, for “introductions alone,” as Hunter would later assert in an imperious email to CEFC executives.
Ye sealed the new alliance with a rich gift — a 3.16 carat diamond worth $80,000. Photographs of the stunning stone appear on Hunter’s laptop along with a grading report that lists it as a “round brilliant” of Grade F with prime “VS2” clarity and “excellent” cut.
Photos of the A 3.16-carat diamond were found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The gift could not have come at a better time. Hunter was in the middle of an ugly divorce from Kathleen, and his office manager, Joan Peugh, had just sent him the latest in a series of overdue bills, a tax collection notice from the District of Columbia for $47,226.78.
Hunter would tell the New Yorker’s Adam Entous that he had flown to Miami to meet Chairman Ye purely for charitable purposes, hoping to secure a donation to World Food Program USA, the nonprofit on whose board he served and which he had used before as a cover for his foreign business activities.
Hunter said it was just chance that the altruistic encounter “turned to business opportunities” and claimed to be surprised when Ye gave him the diamond. He didn’t mention the happy coincidence that his business partners Gilliar and Walker were with him in Miami to clinch a business deal with CEFC.

But the diamond was just an appetizer.
Nine days after Hunter’s meeting in Miami with Ye, $3 million is wired into an account for Rob Walker’s company, Robinson Walker LLC, from State Energy HK Limited, a Shanghai-based company linked to CEFC, according to the Chuck Grassley-Ron Johnson inquiry.
On March 1, another $3 million is wired to Robinson Walker by the same company. Both transactions are flagged by the Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement network in a “suspicious activity report,” filed with the Senate committees as “Confidential Document 16.”
Using the document as a source, the Grassley-Johnson report of Nov. 18, 2020, says: “At the time of the transfers, State Energy HK Limited was affiliated with CEFC China Energy, which was under the leadership of Ye Jianming. In the past, State Energy HK Limited transferred funds to at least one company associated with Hunter Biden’s business associate, Gongwen Dong . . .
“These transactions are a direct link between Walker and the communist Chinese government and, because of his close association with Hunter Biden, yet another tie between Hunter Biden’s financial arrange- ments and the communist Chinese government.”
The Senate report concludes it is “unclear what the true purpose is behind these transactions [$6 million from CEFC] and who the ultimate beneficiary is.”
We know from the laptop that Hunter received regular payments from Robinson Walker. One document lists $56,603.74 from Robinson Walker as income for Rosemont Seneca Advisors, between June and December 2017.
Rob Walker paid at least $511,000 to Hunter’s firm Owasco in 2017, according to an email from Hunter’s tax accountant, Bill Morgan.
Walker tells Bobulinski his role in CEFC is “being a surrogate for H [Hunter] or Jim when gauging opportunities, i.e. digging around in Texas on high speed rail with some of my republican friends . . . or hitting new countries and contacts abroad where things are lukewarm, but not hot enough for H to close or too odd for H to be present . . .”
An Aug. 3, 2018 photo of Hunter Biden in bed at Palms Casino Resort Vegas was found on his laptop.
On March 5, 2017, Page Six breaks the news that Hunter and his brother’s widow Hallie are an item.
When Hunter doesn’t show up for a scheduled meeting three days later in New York, Gilliar tells Bobulinski it doesn’t matter: “In brand he’s imperative but right now he’s not essential for adding input to business.”
It is at this point that Gilliar explains to Bobulinski that the Chinese involved in CEFC are “intelligence so they understand the value added” of the Biden name.
Bobulinski remains troubled by Hunter’s scandals, and Gilliar, who is in Australia with Director Zang looking for acquisitions, is worried he might pull out. So, he arranges for him to meet Hunter the following month at the Chateau Marmont, in Bobulinski’s hometown of L.A.
They meet by the hotel pool in April and speak for two hours while Hunter chain-smokes. Bobulinski finds him respectful and polite. Hunter boasts that he has his father’s ear and can bypass his advisers.
Hunter tells Bobulinski how the joint venture vehicle should be structured and expresses caution about US laws, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), which prohibits businesses paying bribes to foreign officials. He appears to conflate that law with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), a 1938 antispying law that requires anyone acting as a lobbyist for a foreign power to register with the US government as a foreign agent.
“No matter what, it will need to be a US company at some level in order for us to make bids on federal and state funded projects,” Hunter writes later.
“Also, we don’t want to have to register as foreign agents under the FCPA which is much more expansive than people who should know choose not to know.
“Regardless we should have a . . . company called CEFC America, and ownership should be 50 me 50 them. We then cut up our 50 [percent] in a separate entity between the 4 of us.”
Hunter seems focused, but Bobulinski is puzzled about Uncle Jim’s frequent meddling in CEFC business.
For instance, in April 2017, Jim pulls strings at New York’s elite Horace Mann School to get Director Zang’s daughter Rouqi fast-tracked for entry, although she ends up enrolling in another school.
Jim also writes a letter on behalf of CEFC to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo requesting a meeting. “We intend to discuss potential projects and investments in New York.” He lists the other attendees as Hunter, Chairman Ye, Director Zang, and an unnamed “Member of the Royal Family of Luxembourg.”
“What is the deal w Jim Biden as he wasn’t part of the discussion but now seems a focal point?” Bobulinski asks Gilliar. “What role does Jim see himself playing?”
“Consultant is what he’s offered as [far as] I know,” Gilliar replies. “He [Hunter] brought in Jim simply to leverage getting more equity for himself and family in the final hour, that is evident.”
In another WhatsApp message, Gilliar tells Bobulinski: “With H [Hunter’s] demons, could be good to have a backup, he [Jim] strengthens our USP [unique selling point] to Chinese as it looks like a truly family business, and I like the dude.”
With the deal progressing, Hunter tells Bobulinski it’s time for the next step.
“I want Dad to meet you,” he says.

The sudden emergence of the latest COVID variant along with the coming wave of mass hysteria that will inevitably be ginned up by the media could be a political windfall for Democrats who are faced with the prospect of being stripped of control of Congress in next year’s midterm elections and who may use it to push unsolicited mail-in-voting, according to former White House physician Ronny Jackson.
The new variant which has been labeled Omicron – curiously skipping the Greek letter Xi lest the leader of communist China be offended – comes at a time when the fear over the delta variant has largely subsided and Americans are returning to their normal activities in large numbers as was evident by the packed college football stadiums on rivalry Saturday.
Believing that Dems may be poised to use Omicron to extend one-party rule, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, who prior to being elected to Congress served as the physician to three U.S. presidents including Barack Obama, sounded the alarm about the “Midterm Election Variant” and that the party may seize the opportunity to push through the same mail-in-ballots that critics argue allowed them to gain total control over the government in 2020.
On Saturday, Jackson tweeted, “Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant! They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election – but we’re not going to let them!”
The backlash to Jackson’s provocative message was swift and furious as a swarm of critics pounced. Other Twitter users were less skeptical about Jackson’s controversial suggestion.
Jackson’s explosive tweet comes the day after he took to Twitter to ask the important question as to why President Joe Biden who he insists is in “cognitive decline” and not “calling the shots” has not had a cognitive exam, suggesting that the often befuddled “leader” of the free world is not “100 % mentally fit,” although to his credit, the president did recently undergo a colonoscopy.
With politicians such as New York Governor Kathy Hochul rapidly moving to exploit Omicron to justify the renewal of crushing restrictions it may only be a matter of time until her fellow Democrats also reimpose such draconian measures using the Rahm Emanuel maxim of never letting a good crisis “go to waste,” in the hopes that they can once again benefit politically amid whipped up panic that will support universal mail-in-voting, a practice that is rife with the possibility for fraud and abuse.
At least that’s the theory Jackson is pushing.
The DC system is predictable in how they weaponize their branches against the electorate. As the primary races of the mid-term election looms, CTH also provides a few tripwires to watch. Keep in mind, when it comes to controlling the electorate, Democrat and Republican leadership, the UniParty writ large are united in that goal.
In this interview the insufferable House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff appears on CNN to discuss the House efforts to weaponize the J6 Committee for maximum political benefit. The key point to take away from this interview can only be found if you ignore the political manipulation, a shell game, around labeling the opposition as domestic extremists. The intent to use the J6 committee as a political narrative engineering effort is obvious; everyone will talk about that aspect.
Instead, listen to how many times Schiff notes the committee will provide the DOJ with information they gather. The DOJ role is where everyone should be paying attention; and by DOJ we mean DOJ and FBI.
Instead of focusing on the obvious, look around. It is not coincidental the people behind Biden and Lawfare are funneling information into the Lisa Monaco and Merrick Garland DOJ to use against their political opposition. The DOJ/FBI targeting school board protests; the DOJ/FBI targeting James O’Keefe; the DOJ/FBI rounding up J6 attendees etc are the visible tip of the iceberg.
The iceberg itself is built upon the aligned political system, the White House included, feeding the DOJ/FBI targeting information. In/around the spring of 2022, right about the time when the primary challenges to establish the field of contenders for the mid term election are happening, that is when we will see OUTCOMES from the DC system building that below surface iceberg right now.
♦ Tripwire One – The investigative referrals from the J6 committee to the DOJ/FBI in the spring of 2022 will be akin to the Clinton campaign referrals to the DOJ/FBI in the fall of 2016. The appearance of criminal activity will be fabricated to trigger those investigations for the media to cover at length over the course of several months. The media pattern of “according to people familiar with the investigation,” and “according to people with knowledge of the investigation,” will start again.
The corporate printing presses will all be building upon each other, timed to culminate just before the November 2022 election. Much of the political targeting will come from the J6 Committee; however, there’s another part that is being built right now that few are seeing.
♦ Tripwire Two – There will be a very dramatic RICO-esque investigation that will drop in/around the same time in 2022. The targets of the case(s) will be a collective group of people who were at the epicenter of the 2020 audit demand. The entry point for Lisa Monaco and Merrick Garland will be investigations of wire-fraud; and the people targeted will come from the groups who were/are fundraising around the issues of state audits in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
The investigative cases against the groups may be independent in some ways, but the commonality behind them will be their efforts to organize funding for the 2020 election audits (Georgia, Michigan and Arizona as well known examples).
Any entity who did not very carefully and transparently organize their fundraising activity and accounting will be targeted. A reference for the approach the DOJ will take is the 2020 indictment of Steve Bannon and the We Build The Wall organization [Reference Link].
If you take the language of the prior Bannon indictment and overlay the new target, the wording of the investigative narrative will look like this: “As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, capitalizing on their interest in [funding independent election audits] to raise millions of dollars, under the false pretense that all of that money would be spent on [audits],” the DOJ will say in their statement.
CTH will not go into the details of who exactly will be targeted, you can likely guess the most visible, but this approach is almost guaranteed to happen at roughly the same time as the J6 referrals. Unfortunately, it’s just the way this newly weaponized DOJ/FBI system deploys. I would not be surprised if there were not confidential informants operating in the background of these audit groups right now with an intent to assemble information for transmission to the FBI and DOJ.
The motives are obvious: (1) tamp down any election integrity measures; (2) demoralize the MAGA or spirited America-First base of opposition against Democrats; (3) put the Republican Party on the defensive; (4) take attention away from the economic mess caused by the current administration; and (5) provide political turmoil in the ranks of their opposition.
The DOJ/FBI will be used for maximum political damage, and as you know, the professional Republican Party stands to gain just as much by this effort as the Democrat Party. Similar to how the GOPe supported the targeting of the Tea Party by the DOJ using the IRS, so too will the GOPe support the targeting of the various support networks behind the audit the election groups; what John McCain called, “the whacko birds.”
Put the J6 investigation and Audit investigation together, and you can see the DNC approach for 2022.
Hopefully by reading this the groups can prepare.

A former Afghan interpreter resettled in California by the federal government was shot and killed last week after charging San Francisco police with a butcher knife and chanting “Allahu Akbar.”
In bodycam footage, 41-year old Ajmal Amani can be seen rushing two police officers with a knife at a residential hotel in south San Francisco. The Afghan citizen can be clearly heard yelling the Islamist phrase in the bodycam, a development that suggests a terrorist motive in the attack.
Watch footage of the shooting here, which occurred after hotel guests and employees reported being threatened by Amani with the knife. “As Mr. Amani closed the distance, officer 1 and officer 2 fired their respective weapons, striking Mr. Amani. Mr. Amani fell to the ground with the knife nearby him,” a San Francisco Police Department spokesman said of the shooting.
That's an interesting strategy...
