The summer blues! Haggard Bill and Hillary Clinton stroll down the beach in matching tops during annual Hamptons getaway - while marathon-runner Chelsea jogs nearby
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • DailyMail.com spotted Bill and Hillary Clinton on a walk on the beach in The Hamptons on Tuesday

  • The couple are enjoying their annual getaway at the celebrity summer haven on Long Island

  • The former first couple wore matching blue tops; Bill held his pink sneakers in hand while wife Hillary looked coastal chic in a flowing top and wide hat
    What she really looks is seriously unhealthy with edema problems, while he looks like age suddenly hit him hard.
  • Their marathon-runner daughter Chelsea Clinton, 42, was seen out for a jog nearby

  • It's unclear where the couple are staying now, but in previous years they've rented a home in Amagansett for $100,000 for a three-week stay

Government Corruption
While We're On The Subject Of Defunding Federal Agencies, Don't Forget The CDC
[Federalist] Following years of bureaucratic malfeasance in the name of science, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its Covid guidelines on Thursday to now recommend and acknowledge long overdue truths regarding transmission of the respiratory virus and Covid vaccines.

Among the new provisions included in the guidelines are recommendations to largely end mass asymptomatic testing of individuals with no known exposure to the virus, as well as calls for those "exposed to COVID-19" to wear a "mask for 10 days and get tested on day 5" rather than quarantine.

Most noteworthy in the CDC’s new guidelines, however, is the tacit admission by the agency that any individual, regardless of vaccination status, can still get and spread Covid.

"Reiterating that regardless of vaccination status, you should isolate from others when you have COVID-19," the guidelines read. "You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results."

In other words, the health agency has essentially deemed all Covid testing and quarantine rules to be the same for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, an epidemiologist and professor at Stanford’s School of Medicine, took to Twitter to respond to the CDC’s new guidelines, saying that the ending of "mass asymptomatic testing is a big deal, though it comes a full 2 years too late."

"If your child is going on a field trip and has no symptoms and is forced to test, make sure to let the authorities know that they are violating CDC guidelines," he said.

All acts of congress, laws, statutes, resolutions and so forth to 10 pages, dealing with a single topic each.

Congress may pass 10 laws a year. All subject to sunset when that congress closes.

Government to 100 departments, bureaus, agencies. All subject to sunset every 10 years.

Cap federal employment.

Taxes to a capped percentage of the previous year's GDP. If the economy goes down, so do taxes.

I'm sure that's only a start.

'Squad' members Pressley, Tlaib raked in thousands from rent while pushing to cancel payments during pandemic
[FoxNews] Far-left "Squad" members Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., raked in thousands of dollars from rent payments while pushing for rent cancellation during the pandemic, disclosure forms show.

Pressley reported collecting up to $117,500 from renting out four Boston properties in 2021, her newest financial disclosure form shows. Pressley and her husband reported rental income ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 the year prior, meaning she's collected up to $132,500 in rent during the pandemic.

Tlaib also maintained a steady flow of rental income. Fox News Digital reported last week that Tlaib pocketed up to $100,000 from a Detroit property throughout the pandemic.

Tlaib's newest financial disclosure form, released last Thursday, shows that she made between $15,001 and $50,000 from renting the unit in 2021 while reporting the same pay range the year before. Tlaib has collected between $30,002 and $100,000 from renting out the property during the pandemic.

But as Pressley and Tlaib quietly hauled in the payments, they simultaneously pushed for rent cancellation alongside other "Squad" members.

In April 2020, Pressley, Tlaib and other progressives co-sponsored Rep. Ilhan Omar's, D-Minn., bill to "institute a nationwide cancellation of rents and home mortgage payments through the duration of the coronavirus pandemic."

"We must cancel rent, extend eviction and foreclosure moratoriums, provide rental assistance, and offer legal representation for those at risk of eviction," Pressley later wrote in a December 2020 tweet.

In March 2021, the progressives reintroduced the bill, which would have canceled rent for tenants through April 2022 and required the federal government to reimburse landlords for any rent not paid during the pandemic.

"With the economic impact of this pandemic worsening and the threat of eviction and homelessness looming large for families nationwide, we must take every measure possible to keep families safely housed, forgive all rental debt and ensure that the credit scores of hard-hit families are not forever tarnished," Pressley said in March 2021.

Tlaib, meanwhile, echoed Pressley's sentiment.

Good News! 8 of 10 RINO Impeachers Will Not be Returning in January Despite Funding from GOP Groups and Kevin McCarthy
[Gateway] On Tuesday night Liz Cheney was trounced in her primary election to Trump-endorsed Republican challenger Harriet Hageman by 37 points!

Liz Cheney will not be returning to Congress after the drubbing.

Cheney is the 8th RINO who voted for President Trump’s impeachment who will not be returning in 2022.

8 of 10 of the Impeachers will not be back in January.

Only Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) and Rep. David Valadao (R-CA) will be returning next year.

This is despite the fact that GOP leader Kevin McCarthy funded 5 of the 10 impeachers.

And GOP groups also funded Liz Cheney.

The Republican Party is against you.

James Carville: ‘Majority' of GOP Voters ‘Really Stupid' Evil Racists
[Breitbart] Democratic consultant and political commentator James Carville said in an interview with The Hill TV that the "majority" of Republican voters are "stupid" and "evil."

Discussing the brand of the Democratic Party, Carville said, "So much of what has happened to my party is we tend to get defined by some over-educated, totally doofus coastal elites that are out trying to write dictionaries or something unrelated to anybody’s life. And that kind of stuff has a tendency to be very sticky, to stick with people. It is not who the party is. They are a very small part of the Democratic Party."

A$$holes aren't a race, you say? I beg to differ. First of all if you, oh so much smarter than I, DonkProgWokesters can make up your own sexes, then I can define races anyway I want. Secondly, there is more evidence for a$$holes being a distinct race than there is for the 99 sexes you have come up with; to wit,
two a$$holes from different ethnic races have much more in common than an a$$hole and a normie from the same ethic background. QED.

'Keeping our children safe': Pennsylvania governor bans conversion therapy
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has signed a Tuesday executive order banning conversion therapy for minors.

The Democratic governor signed the executive order this week, directing state agencies to discourage conversion therapy for people of all ages. The executive order also instructs agencies, including the Department of Human Services, to make certain that state funds are not used for conversion therapy.

“Conversion therapy is a traumatic practice based on junk science that actively harms the people it supposedly seeks to treat,” Wolf said in a statement. “This discriminatory practice is widely rejected by medical and scientific professionals and has been proven to lead to worse mental health outcomes for LGBTQIA+ youth subjected to it. This is about keeping our children safe from bullying and extreme practices that harm them.”

Liz Cheney's neoconservatism is dead
[UNHERD] Liz Cheney’s thumping defeat in her bid for renomination for Wyoming’s sole seat in the House of Representatives signals again the utter and total defeat of the Bush-Cheney-Romney era of the Republican Party. The neoconservative period of GOP dominance ended when Donald Trump
...Oh, noze! Not him!...
trounced the field during the 2016 primary season. But the avatars of that political tendency — in favour of military adventurism and "free markets" — keep appearing like ghosts at the feast to rattle their chains and insist on being seated above the salt.

Reliably Trump-y until the January 6 riot at the Capitol, Representative Cheney about-faced to embrace every jot of the Democrats’ narrative regarding Trump’s alleged attempt to ignore the election results, dispense with the Constitution, and establish himself as a Caesar on the Potomac. After House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi
Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments...
rejected the Republicans named to serve on her special committee to investigate the riot, she named Liz Cheney as a minority representative to preserve the appearance of bipartisanship. Cheney cheerfully accepted appointment as committee co-chair and embraced her role in the inquisition.

#4  Indeed.

That said, there is some fantastic snark out there, plus some real questions like how did she make $36million in 6 years?

-rubs dirt with hands, grabs bat and aluminum helmet, steps up to plate-

Whatever the Neocon and WOT was before 2008, the election of Obama over McCain prompted that the current game, if it were to survive, had to adapt to the new political hegemony and its emphasis on covert, spec-ops, drone, and otherwise clandestine actions, rather than the up-front military action logistic suppliers. Originally approached as a political opponent, the Neocon syndicate convinced the inquisitors that they could be compatible with the new direction, eventually leading to various underground trade routes established, with a nexus point in Eastern Europe. Seeing these new routes opening drug trade Afghan/Europe, it was tapped to then supply weapons, training, logistics to what Arab Spring participants.

At its height, this structure ended up being something similar to owning all three green properties in Monopoly. Likely, it dipped down to something like the three light blues, until the dust off in Ukraine, now back to the greens.

She gets a commission for assisting to maintain and promote this trade bloc.

This bloc, however, was threatened by Trump policies. To maintain this bloc and know profits were to be had with a Protocols of Obama II, she jumped at the chance to show she was part of The Machine To Be. She was rewarded as such in various ways, but likely overestimated herself as one of The Circle, and would therefore receive election immunity, if you will.

It may just be Wyoming, but she is a cog, received plenty of inside help with the get out and switch party to vote, name endorsement including the lead actor in a current very popular program with a long pedigree, as well as financial and strategy infusions, early advertising on major stations, she was still resoundingly defeated even after a margin of cheat.

'We Have A Likability Problem': Democrat Committee Chair Says Party Is Out Of Touch On Race And Gender Issues
[DAILYCALLER] Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Maloney said the party has a "likability problem" when it comes to racial and gender issues in an interview with the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

Dislikers gotta dislike.
The interview was conducted after The New York Times endorsed Maloney in the Democratic congressional primary for New York’s 17th District. "[Y]ou’ll find broad agreement in our caucus, from the conservative Democrats to the most progressive, that we have a likability problem," Maloney said in the interview.
Arrogance, greed, incompetence, condescension, dishonesty... What's to like?
Maloney said that Democrats don’t do a good enough job reaching out to Americans in areas that "have not benefited from the global economy."
Which'd be most of them. Merkin dough is always available if you're not a Merkin.

#8  Yes, cause you're the anti-human party. You talk about science and caring while celebrating the death of the unborn and turning criminals loose on the streets. You scream "SCIENCE" to peddle your death vaccines and claim that men can became women. And you've erased women completely as nobody can use the term now but 'trans' women aka MEN!
