Agree on Collins, Romney, Murkowski.  Sullivan is okay, I believe. Confirming the 'winning' candidate's appointees is different than making policy.

"...expected to continue rolling back immigration policies..."  We should be fixing this in Congress and the courts, not cabinet or even executive level discretion.

For as long as Maine is a Dem state (which I don't understand) we are lucky to have a centrist R in the Senate.  More than half the states are conservative which means more than half the Senators should be conservative.  Especially Alaska and Utah!  Mitt Romney has four more years??!! This needs to be solved in the candidate recruitment, primary and general election processes.  Having media 98% against us and social media and academia 100% against us is doing real damage. 

Meanwhile. what can FHOF (firehydrantoffreedom.com/index.php?action=recent) do for reachout?  How about a Crafty or ccp rant video that goes viral?   )

I've composed some real humdingers in my head.

Someone at Liberty U. has reached out to me to do a show/podcast.  At the moment I am dealing with a hip issue so the 3+ hour drive is not appealing but as soon as I get this straightened out I will be heading up there.

Stay tuned!

Beijing Biden staffs up with communist China sympathizers
« Reply #116 on: February 08, 2021, 07:15:26 AM »
https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/02/biden-staffs-up-with-china-sympathizers.php

One of them, the Asian policy czar, is Kurt Campbell...board vice chairman of the U.S.-China Strong Foundation.
The foundation has promoted the Chinese army and China’s Belt and Road Initiative—deemed a national security threat by U.S. officials. It has also partnered with the Confucius Institute U.S. Center, an educational nonprofit organization that the State Department designated as a foreign mission last summer, citing its promotion of Beijing’s propaganda efforts to academics across the world.

In August 2017, the U.S.-China Strong Foundation appeared to celebrate the founding of the People’s Liberation Army on its Twitter account, writing, “Today is the 90th anniversary of the founding of China’s PLA!” and urging followers to read about a commemorating address by President Xi.
https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/02/189323.php

There’s also Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who has been nominated to serve as U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

In a column for the Washington Post, Josh Rogan pointed to past remarks by Thomas-Greenfield on China, some of which she delivered at a Chinese Communist Party-funded Confucius Institute. According to Rogan:

She touted Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative and noted China’s vast expansion into all aspects of African economic and even cultural life. She criticized the Trump administration for treating Africa as a battleground for great power competition. She said the United States and China are not in a cold war.

The United States and China are not in a cold war?   - Did we already lose and it's over?

Biden Administration, Suzi LeVine
« Reply #117 on: February 08, 2021, 07:19:35 AM »
Suzi LeVine, the departing head of Washington’s Employment Security Department (ESD), is Joe Biden’s pick to lead the federal office that helps states manage unemployment benefits. In this post — interim assistant secretary of the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) at the Labor Department — LeVine would be at the forefront of the Biden administration’s economic response to the pandemic.
Seattle Times:
News that LeVine was leaving the ESD ignited a storm of criticism last week over problems at the ESD during her 2-1/2 year tenure. Notable among those was a fraud scheme last spring that siphoned off $600 million in unemployment funds, as well as chronic delays in benefit payments to legitimate claimants during the pandemic.

Smoking Gun Proof that Slow Joe Biden Is Not In Charge
« Reply #119 on: February 10, 2021, 07:37:02 AM »
52 carefully crafted Executive Orders were issued by President Joe Biden in the first  20 days.  But we know Joe has not had 52 coherent thoughts in the last 52 years. 

These Executive Orders were not written by staff at his direction.  They were signed by Joe at the direction of whoever is really in charge.

"seemingly innocent title “Modernizing Regulatory Review.” Except this order isn’t about modernizing regulations. It’s about unleashing the regulatory state with a ferocity never before seen in this country."

   - Does anyone believe this diabolical deep state work is the brainchild of Joe Biden and he directed his staff to work out the wording?  No.  His Leftist, deep state puppetmasters designed and wrote this and directed slow Joe to sign it.

We don't know who is running this country.  We can only identify their aims and methods by their work product.

52 Deep State highly partisan executive actions are neither democratic nor unifying. 

Take us as far to the fascist dictatorial Left as you dare before we stop you.  All I ask is that you stop lying about it.  There is nothing democratic or unifying about anything they have done so far.

Peter Principle from CA : Julie Su
« Reply #123 on: February 11, 2021, 06:49:16 PM »
Progressives like to say these days that the Biden Administration is bringing California’s values to the rest of America, and alas that seems to be true. Consider the nomination of California Labor secretary Julie Su to be deputy U.S. Labor secretary after presiding over a gargantuan unemployment benefits fraud.

California has paid some $120 billion in unemployment benefits during the pandemic, nearly a quarter of all payouts nationwide. That alone suggests a governance problem. Yet Ms. Su last month disclosed that $11.4 billion has gone to foreign cyber-criminals, prison inmates and other scammers. Another $19 billion in potentially fraudulent claims are under investigation.

Local district attorneys and the feds have in recent months brought charges against some of the thieves. They include a former labor agency employee who allegedly filed 100 phony claims in other people’s names that totalled up to $2 million. A $21,000 payment to California Sen. Dianne Feinstein tipped off local investigators but not state workers who paid the claim.

Fraud appears to have been pervasive in state prisons with at least one phony claim filed from each facility. Prison payments have added up to more than $800 million. At least 133 death row inmates, including the well-known convicted killer Scott Peterson, had claims filed in their names.


One entrepreneurial inmate gathered personal information from her fellow prisoners and shared their details with a parolee who filed claims in their names. The government lost a mere $200,000 on that scam. Unlike the Maserati that one drug trafficker used his phony benefits to buy, the government can’t confiscate the parolee's spoils. She spent it on plastic surgery.


The ease of swindling California’s unemployment benefits system wasn’t exactly a well-kept secret among criminals. In her defense, Ms. Su says California’s antiquated tech system was targeted by “sophisticated methods of identity theft” amid a surge of claims. She also blamed (of course) the Trump Administration for not providing guidance to the state.

Two recent state audits put the blame closer to home. Ms. Su was appointed to her position in January 2019. The Employment Development Department, which she oversees, has told the state Legislature multiple times that it needs to cross-match claims with incarceration data, as most states do, including in June 2019 and June 2020. California didn’t begin to do so until December.

The U.S. Labor Department also repeatedly warned the state that it needed to improve its fraud prevention, including in May 2020. Instead the state government removed fraud prevention checks so it could send payments out more quickly. Only two workers were responsible for reviewing and verifying identities on thousands of suspect claims each day.

Even though 1,700 claims came from a single address, staff still made payments to that address. The hapless agency eventually directed Bank of America, which issued benefit payments on debit cards, to freeze suspicious accounts. Yet when unemployed workers with legitimate claims were unable to access their benefits, the department blamed the bank.

Now imagine if this huge and embarrassing fraud had occurred at a bank. The managers and most likely the executives who allowed it would be fired. Sen. Elizabeth Warren would be issuing subpoenas and calling for heads on pikes. Yet the Biden White House seems to think the California fraud will be no obstacle to the confirmation for Ms. Su.

This confirms long experience that there is little accountability in progressive government because good intentions matter more than results. Billions in fraud and waste are merely an assumed cost of the welfare state. So Ms. Su is getting a golden parachute into the Biden Administration, where she won’t have to answer for her California failures.

   - Fraud is their middle name.  To cover it up she can argue it was incompetence, not fraud.  That should get them to 50 votes.

The left is only concerned with intent, not results. See their love of big government, no matter how destructive the end result has been.

The Biden Plan to Ruin the Country
« Reply #127 on: February 14, 2021, 09:47:18 AM »
What would you do differently if you were trying to ruin the country?

https://amgreatness.com/2021/02/09/captain-joe-plays-ruin-that-country/

Day 1: Energy. End the Keystone XL Pipeline and all oil and gas drilling and discovery on federal lands or offshore and rid us of any semblance of energy independence. In one fell swoop we are “over the barrel” again and beholden to Middle Eastern fiefdoms. Did I mention it also killed over 11,000 high-paying union jobs?

Day 2: Immigration. Anyone who wants to come here, regardless of qualifications, can now come. Supposed “new” Americans are more important than “present” Americans. Twelve million people immediately; tens of millions more soon, perhaps? No restrictions and amnesty guaranteed.

Day 3: Migration. Any Central or South American should start packing and move al norte today, preferably those who are poor, destitute, and unskilled. All caravans included and encouraged. Asylum for all seekers and the de facto end of our borders. Stop building that damn wall. Defund ICE and return to the very effective—catch and release.

Day 4: Socialized medicine. More and more Obamacare and Medicare for all. On the way to universal free care, the government will pick up the tab and all private health plans will simply wither away. No, you can’t keep your doctor!

Day 5: Climate change. Re-enter the dubious Paris (not Pittsburgh) Accord and enforce a green new deal while China and India continue to pollute to their hearts’ content. It doesn’t matter that we only have a dozen years to live anyhow. It is science. And John Kerry can still fly off in his private jet and pick up an award as the most pompous of the elite.

Day 6: Prison reform. Incarcerate fewer and fewer criminals and eliminate all private detention centers while ending bail and disallowing penalties for most felonies and “minor” infractions.

Day 7: Military reform. Transsexuals are OK in the trenches but now conservatives in uniform must prove that they are not “extremists” or “white supremacists.”

Day 8: More regulation. All of Trump’s deregulation is off the table. The entire federal workforce (the base) is secure. As an aside, we will also require mask-wearing (or perhaps three masks) indefinitely. A $15 an hour minimum wage is on the way shortly, even if it kills the economy. Critical Race Theory training is mandated again for all federal agencies.

Day 9: COVID relief. Much more money thrown at a long list of Democratic Party favorites, almost all of which have nothing to do with the pandemic. Another $1.9 trillion (with a T) now but little or nothing for small businesses and an emphasis on equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity. Bailouts for “needy” blue cities and states are most essential.

Day 10: Schools. Keep them closed. Teachers’ unions are much more important than kids or education. And no school choice, ever!

Day 11: Foreign policy. Rejoin and pay the Chinese-controlled World Health Organization. Restart the Iran deal. Fund abortions around the globe. Disrespect Israel whenever and whenever possible. Keep the troops in Afghanistan and fighting in Syria. Demand more globalism, and make sure America comes last, not first.
