Biden Says US Troops Should Be Dishonorably Discharged if They Don't Vax
[MSN] The White House said Tuesday it 'strongly opposes' a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that prohibits the Pentagon from punishing or dishonorably discharging any service member who refuses a vaccine.

'The Administration strongly opposes section 716, which would detract from readiness and limit a commander's options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination,' the White House Office of Management and Budget said in a statement on the yearly bill that funds the Pentagon.

'To enable a uniformed force to fight with discipline, commanders must have the ability to give orders and take appropriate disciplinary measures.'

I am not sure how this will play out in the courts.

#4  I suppose the military is prepping for large scale resignations.
If they are honorably discharged will they be allowed to reenlist at a future date?
Can they hire "contractors" who are dishonorably discharged?
If Biden can exempt the postal workers he can exempt the military.

#5  BCD can only be done by special or general courts martial. Further, any attempt to direct the verdict (as has now been done by the 'Commander in Chief') is basis for overturning on appeal. I guess if the military has time to waste on CRT they have time and manpower to waste on this game, they can play this game but understand they lose in the end. The discharges will all be later upgraded to general.

Government Corruption
Politico admits Hunter Laptop was real and scandal revealing
[USSAnews] In its review of Ben Schreckinger's new book, The Bidens: Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power, the remarks offer a shocking confession for a left-leaning outlet such as Politico.

"A person who had independent access to Hunter Biden's emails confirmed he did receive a 2015 email from a Ukrainian businessman thanking him for the chance to meet Joe Biden," the report noted.

Politico added, "The same goes for a 2017 email in which a proposed equity breakdown of a venture with Chinese energy executives includes the line, 10 held by H for the big guy?"

Well like many lies, it served its purpose so why continue the lie

Chamber of Commerce Pressures Reps it Endorsed in 2020
[Townhall] After endorsing Reps. Cindy Axne of Iowa, Angie Craig of Minnesota, Antonio Delgado of New York, Josh Harder of California and Elaine Luria of Virginia in the 2020 election‐sparking backlash from Republicans at the time‐the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched an ad campaign on Wednesday pressuring these same centrist Democrats to vote against the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.

"This reconciliation bill is effectively 100 bills in one representing every big government idea that's never been able to pass in Congress," U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark said in a statement. "The bill is an existential threat to America's fragile economic recovery and future prosperity."

"We will not find durable or practical solutions in one massive bill that is equivalent to more than twice the combined budgets of all 50 states," Clark added. "The success of the bipartisan infrastructure negotiations provides a much better model for how Congress should proceed in addressing America's problems."

The ad spots highlight how the bill's tax increases "would be a body blow to our economy. Tell Representatives Axne, Craig, Delgado, Harder, Luria ‐ don't knock us out with these massive tax increases," the narrator says.

#2  Agreed, Mullah Richard. I joined my local CoC about ten years ago, and then I started reading here & there about how the national branch was supporting this & that policy that went against businesses here in the US. I never renewed and I remember blasting somebody who called me up asking me to rejoin.

#3  2020 lobbying expenditure was about $30M and Business Roundtable was about another $10M

for context, the NRA did about $2M that same year.

The CoCommerce does have a magnificent building at 1615 H street in DC.

White House Blames Boris Johnson for Biden's Snub of American Press in Oval Office
[BREITBART] The White House on Wednesday blamed United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson
...pro-Brexit British prime minister, succeeding no-Brexit Theresa May. BoJo is noted as much for his sparkling personality and his hair as for his Conservative policies....
after President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. An incredibly corrupt version of Jar-Jar Binks, only well into his dotage. The dumbass who abandoned Afghanistan....
snubbed American news hounds in the Oval Office on Tuesday evening.

Johnson called on two news hounds from his press corps for questions, but Biden did not do the same for American news hounds.

CBS White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe raised the incident with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki
...a valley girl who woke up one morning and found she was spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of State under Obama. A new American success story, under Biden she became spokeswoman for the whole administration, and she was even able to get her sister a job...
during the daily briefing Wednesday.

Psaki made the excuse that Johnson did not inform Biden or his staff "in advance" that he would take questions.

"I think our relationship with the United Kingdom and with prime minister Johnson is so strong and abiding, we’ll be able to move beyond this," she added. "But he called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance."

When asked by another news hound if Biden felt upstaged by Johnson’s questions that set off the awkward exchange, Psaki quickly denied it.

"I think the president has not spent a moment worrying about it," she replied.

Reporters were visibly upset after Biden aides shouted them out of the room — at one point drowning out the president’s attempt to answer a question.

''What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery,'' congresswoman Maxine Waters said about US Border Patrol agents

"What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery"

Nice to know, Maxine finally admits her real age, 176 years old.

2021-1845=176 years

1845+20=1860 -Last 20 Years of slavery

1861-1865 - Civil War

1865 to 2021 = 156 years, since the last of slavery.

Maxine, no one should buy what you are selling - That situation died over a Century & a Half Ago.

You are a "witness" in your dreams... and so are any other race baiters.

#2  Maxine Waters said about US Border Patrol agents stopping Haitian economic migrants from illegally crossing into the US.

What we witnessed was American citizens homes and businesses in the area being protected from a hoard of invaders.

#11  I honestly think virtually every single one of those Haitians will be an endless drain on the taxpayers, in jail, on welfare, in healthcare, in education and in public benefits of every kind, Why in Gods name do we tolerate any government that essentially allows people so utterly worthless to invade our shores and steal from our children's future? This is intolerable!

#12  It is worse.

These people are selling themselves into servitude for no money and generational service, and will be given just enough food and shelter to learn how not to work, and pass that knowledge on to their offspring.

It is absolutely dehumanizing by careful, deliberate design.

George W. Bush to hold re-election fundraiser for Rep. Liz Cheney
[NYPOST] Possibly cornered Rep. Liz Cheney
...Faux Republican hereditary congresswoman-for-life from Wyoming. She has been described as Republican royalty. A staunch Never Trumper, Liz supported the second impeachment of Donald Trump for his role in the 2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol. Publicans dumped her from her leadership position in May 2021. Refusing to admit that she had trashed her own career, Cheney has said that she intends to be the leader... in a fight to help to restore our party and that she may be interested in a future presidential run....
is betting on figures from the fading Republican establishment to help her win re-election — setting up a clash between two GOP former presidents.

Cheney (R-Wyo.), who has been sidelined by House Republican leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy
...the GOP house majority whip. He replaces Eric Cantor, who got whupped because his politix are like Kevin McCarthy's...
for voting to impeach President Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
, has invited President George W. Bush to hold a fundraiser for her next month in Dallas, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Trump is backing her challenger Harriet Hageman in the 2022 Republican primary for Wyoming’s sole House seat.

In his endorsement of Hageman earlier this month, Trump referred to Cheney as a "warmonger and disloyal Republican."​

The fundraiser comes amid a squabble between the 43rd and 45th presidents.
