Santos Can’t Touch the Democrats’ Duplicity › American Greatness

For me, it’s a no-brainer that the Biden Administration is doing nothing to control the southern border, reopen closed pipelines, allow new drilling on government lands, to stop LGBT and critical race indoctrination in public education, in the military and civil service, or to cut back on inflationary spending. Biden, Inc. weathered the November elections magnificently with minimal losses and, in fact, picked up seats in the Senate and in state offices. An overrun southern border, an inflated economy, rampant urban violence, a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden’s family scandals—none of these apparent disasters seemed to matter as much as our president’s promise to remit college debts for young voters and the reaction of unmarried women to the Dobbs decision. Of course, an obvious reason for these developments was the way the Democrats sent out their mail-in ballot many weeks in advance to designated voters to react to events that …

Democrat lawmaker Pramila Jayapal mourns hijackers in 9/11 post

Progressive Democratic Washington Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal mourned the 9/11 hijackers in a post commemorating the deadliest attack on US soil in history. In a now-deleted post, the Squad member wrote on Twitter: “Today we remember the 2,996 people who were killed on 9/11 and all those who lost their lives serving our country in the forever wars that followed.”2,977 people were killed in the deadly attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, The Pentagon in Washington DC, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Jayapal’s number of 2,996 includes the 19 terrorists who hijacked the planes. Jayapal also made the same “mistake” when commemorating the 9/11 death toll last year on the 20th anniversary of the tragedy.”Today we remember every life lost on that tragic day 21 years ago and all those who lost their lives while serving our country in the forever wars that …

Texas teacher fired after saying not to judge pedophiles harshly

A Texas teacher has been fired after a video emerged on Tiktok in which she appears to be defending pedophilia , according to The Daily Mail.English teacher Amber Parker can be heard in the 15-second video clip saying to a student, “Stop calling them that …We’re not going to call them that. We’re going to call them MAPs – Minor Attracted Persons . So don’t judge people just because they want to have sex with a five-year-old.”The incident occurred last week, and Parker was swiftly suspended. However, El Paso’s Independent School District board of trustees has since voted unanimously to fire her.But not everyone agrees with the board’s decision. Some students are defending Parker saying that her words were taken out of context.Ryann Ruvalcaba, a student at the school, told Fox17, “She [teacher] was expressing how it was ridiculous how we [society] might not be able to call people …

The Pentagon’s Pronoun Wars

In 2020, the Air Force conducted a classified war game which showed Communist China launching a biological attack and then invading Taiwan.

And we lost.

“At that point the trend in our war games was not just that we were losing, but we were losing faster,” Air Force Lt. Gen. S. Clinton Hinote stated.

With abysmal readiness rates that have an average of only 7 out of 10 planes operational, and down to 50% for the F-22 stealth fighter, 50% for the CV-22 Osprey and 40% for the B-1 Lancer, the Air Force isn’t even trying to win a possible war, but it’s fighting one for pronouns.

Gina Ortiz Jones, a two-time losing congressional candidate who wasted millions before being appointed by Biden as Air Force Undersecretary, declared that adding pronouns to the emails of air force personnel will make them “a more inclusive force”.

”An inclusive …

The Mandate for 2023 and 118th U.S. Congress

The pre-Christmas vote by the U.S. House and Senate to pass the $1.7 trillion Omnibus Spending Bill at a time when America’s balance sheet is in its worst condition ever is a sign post that financial collapse cannot be far away. Our nation is now technically bankrupt with liabilities significantly exceeding assets. And it gets worse every year with national debt now growing on a long-term annual basis at 8% or more, while assets (GDP) are growing on average at only 2.5 to 3% annually. Politically, our federal government is operating at ever new levels of dysfunction and corruption with diminishing accountability to the Constitution in either the spirit or the letter of the law.

Consider: the widespread failure of elected officials to uphold their oath of office; the political weaponization of the Justice Department and the FBI; the unequal two-tiered practice of justice and law enforcement; the flood of illegal immigrants and criminal …

Pelosi Announces Major Pay Increase: ‘Dear Colleague’

House staffers can expect a hefty pay increase in 2023 — courtesy of outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives would raise its maximum annual salary for staffers to $212,000 in a Friday “Dear Colleague” letter to fellow lawmakers.

Pelosi previously established a new minimum annual salary of $45,000 for congressional staffers, a policy she touted in the letter announcing the maximum salary increase.

The outgoing speaker pointed to the House’s need to “retain and recruit the best talent in our nation.”

The maximum pay is considerably more than the salary of most elected House members and senators, which is set at $174,000 a year.

NEW: Pelosi boosts max staff pay to $212k/year. That’s a lot more than members make, and part of a longstanding push to help retain Hill staff. — Chris Cioffi (@ReporterCioffi) December 30, 2022

Idaho Murder Victim’s Father Tears Into Suspect: ‘The Little Coward…’

Authorities believe they finally have the man responsible for the brutal murder of four Idaho college students, Byran Kohberger, 28, in custody.

For the first time since Kohberger’s apprehension, the father of one of the victims, Steve Goncalves, has chosen to speak out.

Goncalves’s daughter, Kaylee, was one of the four victims. The others were her roommates, Madison Mogen and Xana Kernodle and Kernodle’s boyfriend, Ethan Chapin.

In November, the four were reportedly murdered in their sleep by someone carrying some sort of blade.

“The little coward that had finally got caught running,” Goncalves said, according to ABC News.

“I still think everyone’s innocent until proven guilty, so I put that in the back of my mind.”

When shown a picture of Kohberger in custody, Goncalves called the suspected murderer a “broken soul, pitiful human being.”

Goncalves is already looking forward to seeing Kohberger in court.

“This guy’s gonna have …

In upcoming book, ex-Capitol Police Chief Sund again ties Capitol riot to government intel failures

Ex-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund says a succession of government failures resulted in the Jan. 6 riot.

Sund, who resigned after the Capitol riot, makes the claims in a new book, in which he gives a firsthand account of the events on Jan. 6, 2021, according to The Washington Post.

He argued the federal government’s multibillion-dollar security network – built after 9/11 to gather intelligence about another possible attack – provided no such information about a potential riot.

Sund says the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the Capitol Police’s intelligence unit had been alerted weeks earlier about so-called “chatter,” which is typical online, about right-wing extremists arming for an attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, the day Congress was set to certify the 2020 presidential election results declaring Democrat Joe Biden the winner.

He says the intelligence community failed to take the basic steps to assess the alleged …

Kari Lake files petition to take appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has filed a petition to transfer her appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court after her election fraud lawsuit was dismissed.

Lake filed the petition Jan. 1.

The state’s Maricopa County court last week dismissed eight of Lake’s 10 counts. Two of the counts, which involved Election Day ballot printing issues and procedural errors, were brought for a two-day trial that did not go in her favor.

“I am standing up for the people of this state,” Lake said on former White House adviser Steve Bannon’s “War Room” TV show on the Real America’s Voice streaming platform.

Lake has not allegedly widespread voter fraud cost her the election, but argues problems with the state’s election system contributed to her narrow loss.

Maricopa Judge Peter Thompson has also rejected a request by Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs, who has …
