Nancy Pelosi ‘American people don’t want a new direction’

We couldn’t pick better leadership for the Dems. They are toying with radical Muslim Ellison for heading up the party after the old war-horse Howard Dean decided to hang it up. We have Elizabeth Warren beating the war drums. Speaking of war horses, now Nancy was re-elected for the House leadership. Her ‘debut’ on Sunday of the new look was simply amazing. The prowess of her intellectual acumen almost matched “you have to see what’s in the bill to know what’s in it.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that despite Democrats losing the House, Senate, and almost two-thirds of state houses, the American people don’t want a new direction.

The California congressman appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday and instead said the issue facing Democrats is simply a failure of communication.

DICKERSON: “The Democratic Party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the House. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and then, go to you, what are you going to do differently?”
PELOSI: “Well, I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”

Pelosi also downplayed her party’s losses in 2010 and 2016, telling CBS’s John Dickerson “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008.”

DICKERSON: “Here’s my question, though, Democrats since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House down 19.3 percent and in governors 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party?”
PELOSI: “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008, and let me just put that in perspective. When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”

NY Time’s David Carr: “Middle Places” Home Of “Low-Sloping Foreheads”

Tucker Carlson interviewed the NY Times Public Editor on the biased Trump stories last night. It was a good interview, and I include it here. A number of the Time’s reporters were covered including their tweets. One reporter that came to mind was Time’s reporter, David Carr. As I write this post today, as a deplorable, irredeemable, who clings to God and Guns, complete with a low forehead from Middle Earth according to David Carr, I went back to my way back post.

What liberal elites really think of the average America  

”If it’s Kansas, if it’s Missouri, no big deal. You know, that’s the dance of the low-sloping foreheads. The middle places, right? [pause] Did I just say that aloud?”

The liberal elitists who used their control of the media establishment to install Barack Hussein Obama in power. pride themselves on being too full of nuance to express coherent opinions. Yet when it comes to their attitudes toward normal Americans, they speak plainly enough. Here columnist David Carr of the odious New York Times sums up the ruling class’s attitude toward the denizens of Flyover Country.

Writer’s comment 12/2/16: We showed them, didn’t we? We got the House, Senate, President. They are not laughing now are they?

House GOP to vote in secret to restore ‘Pork’ Earmarks UPDATE

Update:House Speaker Paul Ryan requested members table the issue until 2017, allowing lawmakers more time to address the problem. Ed: Really? You need more time? Only to 2017???? (Good work folks, we put the pressure on.)

I would love to re-post the entire piece from the Daily Signal as my blood pressure rises in righteous anger. Best part, they are going to vote for the amendment by secret ballot vote. Fortunately for my health, the Mike Rogers who is one of the sponsors of this pork assignment is from Alabama and is not THE Mike Rogers from Michigan whom I have been posting about. Michael Rodgers must not get a cabinet job, look at his wife’s defense interests. By the way, Trump just had this Rogers pack his bag and he is off the transition team. Here tis:

“Did they learn nothing at all from these elections? People are tired of business as usual in D.C.,” she added. “This is not a show of good faith, it’s a show of callous cynicism and hypocrisy.”One week after Donald Trump won the presidency on a promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, House Republicans will vote on a proposal to bring back earmarks.

If the amendment is adopted by a secret-ballot vote Wednesday, lawmakers would be able to request earmarks once again as long as the sponsoring member is identified, the earmarks initiate in committee, and they don’t increase spending.The vote will take place Wednesday when House Republicans meet to adopt their rules for the next Congress. The House earmark ban dates to 2010 when the GOP won control of the chamber.

Reps. John Culberson of Texas, Mike Rogers of Alabama, and Tom Rooney of Florida are listed as sponsors of the amendment, a copy of which was obtained by The Daily Signal.

The amendment would bring back legislative earmarks for some government agencies, including the Department of Defense, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Reclamation. It also would allow lawmakers to provide earmarks for state and local governments, except for recreational facilities, museums, or parks.

Democrats lose one more State Legislature won’t be able to stop Constitutional Amendments

News Alert gave us this story to think about. We hear about the massive losses of the Democrats thanks to Obama, but could this be the real gift? Term limits come to mind as my first fix. The ultimate draining the swamp.

Democrats now control only 13 state legislatures (26%). If they lose 1 more they fall below the % needed to stop constitutional amendments.

Election Fraud? Add Microsoft’s Allen, Foreign Scytl election software, servers in Spain

No election fraud coming up? You are looking in the wrong direction. It is not voter stuffing or dead people voting. I did this post in 2014 and it has only gotten worse. You tell me whats going on.

In what has to be one of the most troubling pieces of news, we learn that Scytl is on the move in taking control of many world-wide elections as well as increasing in U.S. elections via electronic means. Now Microsoft’s Paul Allen has chipped into the pot. Here is the update from earlier posts you might want to check out. First the back story.

Foreign company owns U.S. election software-UPDATE

“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama.The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature titled “Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm.” The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States. Drudge reports that the  best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.

UPDATE:Save American Foundation:

SCYTL, the global leader in secure electronic voting technologies, announced today the acquisition of 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Why is a software company based in Barcelona Spain(SCYTL)  now in charge of counting our votes in the upcoming General Election on November 6th.  Did the Federal Elections Commission approve of this ?  (FEC) Did the Congress of the United States approve of this ?

The firm already provides balloting for overseas U.S. military and civilian voting in nine states along with elections technologies in several districts

With the purchase of SOE Software, meanwhile, SCYTL has increased its involvement in the U.S. elections process. SOE Software boasts a strong U.S. presence, providing results in over 900 jurisdictions.

In 2009, SCYTL formally registered with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (AEC) as the first Internet voting manufacturer in the U.S. under the EAC Voting System Testing and Certification Program.

Project Vote noted that in 2008, the Florida Department of State commissioned a review of SCYTL’s remote voting software and concluded, in part, that:

  • The system is vulnerable to attack from insiders.
  • In a worst case scenario, the software could lead to (1) voters being unable to cast votes; (2) an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters; and (3) possible disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by individual voters.
  • The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.

Check out Hacked D.C. election test site researcher testifies easy to do

University of Michigan professor who with his students hacked a prototype D.C. voting website and had it play the school’s fight song said today it will be decades, if ever, before voting can be performed safely over the Internet.

J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor, has been participating in a test of Washington’s new “Digital Vote By Mail” system, which was supposed to allow some 900 D.C. overseas voters submit ballots over the Internet.

During the test, which began last week, not only was Halderman’s group able to get the site to play the fight song, they also changed cast votes to “evil science fiction robots” and gained access to video cameras monitoring a board of elections data center.

Halderman’s hack prompted election officials to take down the system for several days, but it went back up on Tuesday. Halderman said that on Thursday his group changed the password to part of the system to “InternetVotingIsDangerous!” and locked officials out. The test of the system was supposed to end today.

Now back to the latest news:

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, a supporter of President Obama, is investing $40 million in Scytl, the Spain-based firm that in January 2012 acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Allen made the investment via his Vulcan Capital, the investment management firm that oversees his multi-billion dollar portfolio.

Abhishek Agrawal, Vulcan Capital’s managing director, told the Wall Street Journal’s blog he expects countries to eventually become comfortable with digital-only elections.

“This is a very powerful global trend,” Agrawal added. “There is a pathway toward gradual modernization.”

Another of Allen’s charitable groups, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, donated a total of $250,000 to the immigration-reform advocacy group Centro de la Raza.

The same foundation provided $450,000 to the Urban Institute.

The supposedly “nonpartisan” Urban Institute’s employees have a record of donating nearly 100 percent of their political contributions to Democrats. Officially, the Urban Institute advocates for socialized medicine, carbon taxes and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Scytl, meanwhile, is advancing worldwide. WND reported yesterday an entire municipality in Canada will utilize online-only voting in the next election, with all balloting to be run via Scytl.

WND reported in 2012 that Scytl announced the successful implementation of technology that allows ballots to be cast using Google and Apple smartphones and tablet computers

FCC Approves Foreign Takeover of U.S. Broadcasters

While we are focused on the election, the giving away of American interests moves into high gear. Last week, control of the internet. One the most important assets of our country and important so that any dissident voices can be heard. But wait, they are not done yet. Let’s allow the takeover by foreign entities of the whole damn enchilada. Read it and weep. Read the whole thing.

Exclusive to Accuracy in Mediafcc

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on September 29th did something worse than give up control of the Internet. They voted unanimously to put America’s entire broadcast industry on the fast track to a foreign takeover by Chinese, Russian or Muslim Brotherhood front corporations.

This new FCC rule gives foreign interests the long sought-after tools they need to shape U.S. public opinion and to censor the opposition.

Once a foreign corporation scoops up a media business, such as a chain of radio stations, it can eliminate national and local programming and substitute its own government’s propaganda. That means that conservative talkers could find themselves off the air.

Citing the need for “change” from the old “vintage” laws, Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel declared that “laws that govern broadcast investment can get in the way.”

So, rather than respect the law and Congress, the FCC decided in a 5 to 0 vote to decree a new “rule” that effectively guts a law that protected Americans from foreign interests and their propaganda. The new rule assumes that any foreign owner of a TV or radio broadcaster will be acceptable unless someone can prove otherwise.

So why did this happen? The current FCC commissioners are mostly lawyers and lobbyists with political connections to both political parties. These political parties depend on financial contributions from major corporations, including media corporations. They want the option of dumping their broadcast properties off on cash-heavy foreign buyers, no matter what impact it has on the public’s right to know.

The system is rigged, even in favor of the foreign interests buying up America.
