In a scathing rebuke of Barr, Trump lets loose in an open letter. Many of us were concerned with Barr from the get go. His announcement at his confirmation hearing that he was best friends with Horowitz gave us plenty to give pause.
Here we have the real story on the weasel Bill Barr.
In this OAN interview Natalie Harp outlines the duplicitous history of Bill Barr’s former statements relating to voter fraud and mail-in ballot fraud. After laying out the background of Barr’s statements as Attorney General, President Trump’s spokesperson Liz Harrington responds directly to the current position of Barr. It is followed by Trump’s letter.
Via NBC) […] The former U.S. attorney whose office oversaw the Roger Stone prosecution resigned from the Trump administration Wednesday, two days after President Donald Trump abruptly withdrew her nomination for a top job at the Treasury Department.
Why did Barr ever think Jessie Liu was worth promoting to a critical role in treasury? and worse to the DOJ #3 post before that. As soon as Barr was confirmed he was her champion. She was involved with Mueller including the Stone and McCabe cases. Keep it in mind as we go through this:……….
It is funny too, at the same time they try to act like scientists have been studying this stuff for years but also act like this was all so bad because of how unprepared we were. So much of what they say doesn’t add up. None of this has ever made any sense.
She is trying…
Just saying….. quite a difference-

Ah but she absolutely stunned “the crowd in Dl with a coral dress and beige heels” (NBC) last week…
There are hundreds of protesters from the January 6 incident at the Capitol languishing in a special cell block in a D.C. prison in solitary confinement. The most well known is “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley. In shades of Stalinist Russia, he has been moved to a federal prison in Colorado for the infamous “forensic evaluation.” If found too ill to stand trial he no doubt will be sent to a mental institution until such time as he is “fit to stand trial.”
These poor souls are not getting the attention they deserve. They are being rounded up all over America.
NBC News reporter Scott MacFarlane reported Monday that the so-called “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, is being transferred from the jail in Alexandria, Virginia, to Colorado where he’ll undergo a forensic evaluation, according to the Justice Department.
“Specific details were confirmed with the government that that use of a spear or a finial on a spear dates to the Native Americans, a fact consistent with the Shamanic faith of the defendant,” the motion continues. “It was further noted for the government that the U.S. Army uses the spear finial with open wings on the sides, however, the traditional Native American design only contains the central point, akin to the defendant’s flagpole.”
A federal judge ruled Monday that the man often called the “QAnon Shaman” must remain in jail pending his trial for his role in the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol because he remains a threat to the public.
Judge Royce Lamberth said in his order rejecting Jacob Chansley’s request for release that “no condition or combination of conditions” would ensure Chansley’s return to court if he were released.
Lamberth said Chansley believes his actions during the siege of the Capitol, an attack in which five people died, were peaceful. That mindset, Lamberth wrote, shows “a detachment from reality.”
“Defendant characterizes himself as a peaceful person who was welcomed into the Capitol building on January 6th by police officers,” Lamberth wrote in the order. “The Court finds none of his many attempts to manipulate the evidence and minimize the seriousness of his actions persuasive.”
Lamberth declined to release him and focused, in part, on the accusation that Chansley stormed the Capitol with a dangerous weapon. Chansley’s attorney described it as a flagpole with a “spear finial.”
Little of the reported 12000 hours of footage from January 6 has been released. Yet those accused have no access. No one died from the so called “armed insurrection” except one of the protesters. Thanks to Rumble we have this one.
One officer, identified in the video and confirmed by charging documents as Officer Keith Robishaw, appears to tell Chansely’s group they won’t stop them from entering the building. “We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm,” Robishaw warns. Chansley and another protestor instruct the crowd to act peacefully. “This has to be peaceful,” Chansley yelled. “We have the right to peacefully assemble.”
Summer is heating up here in my neck of the woods. Looks like we are on our way to a hot week throughout the country. What could be better than hearing a bit of “Summertime.” An unusual rendition that I hope you enjoy as much as I do. You may prefer to watch this in full screen.

Coconut octopuses are among the most intelligent invertebrates around: They use tools, carry their shelters around for when they need them, and, fittingly, adopt an underwater walking motion that’s very similar to humans.

Magnetic north just changed. Here’s what that means.
Magnetic north has never sat still. In the last hundred years or so, the direction in which our compasses steadfastly point has lumbered ever northward, driven by Earth‘s churning liquid outer core some 1,800 miles beneath the surface. Yet in recent years, scientists noticed something unusual: Magnetic north’s routine plod has shifted into high gear, sending it galloping across the Northern Hemisphere—and no one can entirely explain why.
This should work out well. I would be remiss in not congratulating the apparent win of India Walton as a Socialist Mayor of Buffalo New York. She has never held elected office before. Mom at 14. All the requisite requirements for public office these days. Good luck Buffalo. Just look south and check out your neighbors in NYC to see how these policies are going.
Walton has promised she will sign a tenants’ bill of rights that would institute rent control and create a tenant advocate; remove police from responding to most mental health calls and establish a new response to mental health calls; and declare Buffalo a sanctuary city that would safeguard undocumented immigrants, all in her first 100 days in office. Her long-term goals include increasing city funding for public schools and expanding neighborhood community development.
In a Wednesday interview with Buffalo’s WGRZ following her victory, Walton emphasized how her platform as a democratic socialist differs from that of a traditional Democrat. “That means we put people first, that means we prioritize the working class, the marginalized, the often unseen, unheard people over profits, corporations and developers,” she said.
She went on to emphasize that she does not consider herself a politician, and that what the people need is someone who understands “the challenges that average people face.”
I was under the impression that governance, just like a business, requires some sort of skill set to see it operationally successful. But of course I no doubt am mistaken. Just look at what we have now running the federal government in the form of one senile old man with the next in line with the only skill is giggling in response to a question.
It is interesting how the Democrats have allowed the Socialist party to usurp their party. There is little similarity to the Democrat party of an earlier generation.

Could We Make Humans Smaller Than Cats? Tucker Carlson covered climate change last night. It turned out to be a report with our very own Josef Mengele dressed in the cloak of a “world renown” bioethicist by the name of S. Matthew Liao. Human Engineering is the new buzz word. If we can’t alter the earth’s changing climate in time to save us, then the better mitigation is to simply change humans. Liao spoke at the World Science Festival on June 4 2016. I include a portion of it. The full thing is out there for now on YouTube.
One thing we have learned with Covid and labs. There are a whole lot of labs fooling around with Mother Nature. To even propose these ideas of changing the size of humans, altering our genomes so we cannot eat meat, should chill us to the core. Tucker later on had physicist Koonin on to challenge the notion of the dooms day scenario of Liao. I picked up a composite clip of him and offer it today.
The latest science suggests that it is too late to prevent human-induced climate change. Technological optimists are now turning their minds to mitigation through techniques of geo-engineering, like giant space mirrors or seeding the oceans with iron to prompt carbon-absorbing algal blooms. But projects to alter the entire planet will expose all life to massive risk.
So, why not address the source of the problem and engineer humans to reduce our environmental impact and adapt? Genetic engineering could make us smaller or reduce our appetite for meat. Doses of Oxytocin could make us more sympathetic and cooperative. Such possibilities are criticised as extreme, but are they any more so than re-engineering the planet?
S. Matthew Liao is a professor of philosophy at New York Universtiy.
Genetic engineering could help solve many of the major problems of the 21st century, from eliminating certain diseases to growing more nutritious crops. At the 2016 World Science Festival, bioethicist S. Matthew Liao discussed how it could even help reduce humanity’s footprint on the planet, by making some surprising changes to the human body.
What is not spoken out loud on tape but no doubt talked about behind closed doors is the elimination of some humans totally. Why stop with just small people? We have already been through this with Margaret Sanger.
Interviewed on the Sunrise Weekend morning show, NYU Professor Matthew Liao promotes hormone treatments on children ‘when they’re small’ to close their ‘growth plates’ and thus stunt child growth. Professor Liao says this helps fight climate change since ‘larger people consume more energy than smaller people.’ Weekend Sunrise Australia
Physicist Steve Koonin Challenges Unsettled Climate Change Alarmism
It’s refreshing to get a non-hysterical perspective from a reputable source for a change instead of the babble the media and its political cohorts churn out. There are several interviews with him included. The first one is Tucker Carlson.
We get a “twofer” with this “Olympian.” The oldest competitor – 43, and a tranny. Add to that he competed as a man in weightlifting prior to his “transitioning.” We knew this was coming. Back in 2015 the Olympic committee approved transgendered competitors. I have yet to figure out how the women’s movement can support this nonsense. Worldwide, out of close to seven billion souls, only a handful of men claim to be transgendered. Out of that, we are going to allow them to turn women’s sports upside down. Then to add to the fun of the Olympics: Transgender Olympian Wants To Burn US Flag On The Podium.
You know the drill, no need to repeat how this effects girls and women in sports:
Laurel Hubbard, a male-to-female transgender weightlifter, is set to make history as the first openly transgender person to participate in the Olympics.
Hubbard, 43, was selected to join New Zealand’s weightlifting team at the Olympics in Tokyo this summer. Hubbard is the oldest weightlifter to be competing in the games.
“Look, I’ve heard that and I think it’s incredibly disrespectful to the other competitors,” Hubbard said in 2017. “I don’t believe there is any fundamental difference between me and the other athletes, and to suggest there is is slightly demeaning to them.”
Hubbard competed in men’s weightlifting competitions before undergoing transgender surgery in 2013. In 2015, the International Olympic Committee announced it would allow a transgender female to participate in women’s competitions as long as the athlete’s testosterone measured below 10 nanomoles per liter for at least a year prior to competing.
Hubbard dominated female weightlifting after transitioning. Hubbard set four national weightlifting records for New Zealand at the 2017 Australian International & Australian Open in Melbourne. Hubbard also unseated Lambrechs as the top female competitor in their weight class.
There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.
There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”
The IOC ignores evidence that the fairness of male to female transition still leaves men larger in general than the women they compete against. As Robert S. Beil, M.D., of Montefiore Medical Group, acknowledged, “MTF trans people tend to be bigger, and may have certain strengths from before they started using estrogen.” As noted in a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine
“My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium. This is what they focus on during a pandemic. Hurting trans children,” BMX rider Chelsea Wolfe Wrote on Facebook in March, Fox reported. The athlete said that the comment doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about the U.S. and those who misunderstand the remark are “sorely mistaken.”
The 28-year-old Florida native started BMX racing at the age of 6 and began competing in 2014, according to Wolfe’s bio page.
“Qualifying to represent the US national team for the sport that I love is something I consider to be one of my life’s greatest achievements. Through so many obstacles in my way on top of the standard challenges that every athlete will face when working for this dream I persevered and the difficulty of this task is why I’m so proud to accomplish it.”
New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard on Monday became the first openly transgender athlete to be selected to compete in the Olympics this summer.
Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are cheap drugs who have long lost their patent. They have been around for decades with no known major side effects. Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” takes on the facts once again as to why Anthony Fauci instead of supporting the use of these drugs instead wanted to give billions of dollars for new treatments. It is a scathing rebuke of the the media which has censored the positive reports on the use of these drugs and especially that Dr. Kory’s testimony before congress was banned on Youtube.
It was huge because it discouraged / condemned treating with therapeutic drugs, which would have saved lives. And most of the medical profession failed us miserably by not treating the symptoms.
If you enjoy a good take down, this clip is for you.
Fauci should be in jail. It is suggested that tens of thousands of lives could have been saved with the timely use of these drugs. Especially Ivermectin. Setting aside the argument as to where Covid started, it was well known that these drugs were helpful. Yet WHO, the FDA, the CDC did all they could to stop the use of these drugs.
US President Donald Trump has again defended the use of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus, contradicting his own public health officials.
He said the malaria medication was only rejected as a Covid-19 treatment because he had recommended its use.
His remarks come after Twitter banned his eldest son for posting a clip promoting hydroxychloroquine.
There is no evidence the drug can fight the virus, and regulators warn it may cause heart problems.
On Wednesday Dr Anthony Fauci, a leading member of the White House coronavirus task force, told the BBC that hydroxychloroquine was not effective against the virus.
“We know that every single good study – and by good study I mean randomised control study in which the data are firm and believable – has shown that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of Covid-19,” he said.
The FDA also revoked its emergency-use authorisation for the drug to treat Covid-19. The World Health Organization (WHO) says “there is currently no proof” that it is effective as a treatment or prevents Covid-19.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., and Dr. Pierre Kory, Chief Medical Officer of the FLCCC Alliance, weigh in on ‘Sunday Morning Futures and on the impact of censorship in fight against COVID
We shall see how long this stays up.

Fauci talked about scientists evolving in their opinions. Sure, especially when they are caught with self interest ruling their decisions
Axios, citing New York Times writer Kara Swisher’s podcast, “Sway,” quoted Fauci defending his record on COVID-19.
“It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves…and that’s the reason why I say people who then criticize me about that are actually criticizing science,” he said.
Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd that the recent criticism he faced is “quite frankly” attacks on science.”
“Because all of the things I have spoken about consistently, from the very beginning have been fundamentally based on science,” he said. “Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people and there was pushback against me, so if you are trying to, you know, get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you’re attacking science, and anybody that looks at what is going on clearly sees that.”
