RE: Democrat policies
Yep, Democrats are firm proponents of the 1st amendment.

Shitbirds Warren and Schiff letter to Amazon

Warren and Schiff have sent a stern letter to Amazon demanding a report that explains “what the company is doing to stop its systems from recommending books and other products linked to falsehoods about the pandemic and vaccines.”

They are apparently upset at any question to universal COVID mantra, and they are particularly snippy that these books keep popping up as most popular under Amazon’s search.

Schiff and Warren’s tirade would be comical, but the final line of their letter is chilling:

“Given the seriousness of this issue, I ask that you perform an immediate review of Amazon’s algorithms and, within 14 days, provide both a public report on the extent to which Amazon’s algorithms are directing consumers to books and other products containing COVID19 misinformation and a plan to modify these algorithms so that they no longer do so.”

Again -- “A plan to modify these algorithms so they no longer do so.”

They don’t like the presence of another viewpoint, so please change them.

In short -- they demand that Amazon revise its algorithm to stop promoting books and other products with messages that contradict the official Covid narrative. Seriously?

We don’t like what people are choosing to read, so please bury those books so deep that no one will ever find them.

The Democrats / progressives have truly become not just martinets, but border on being proto-maoist.

I wonder if the progressives are aware that the protesters at Kavanaugh's house today regarding his vote not to 'as a first move enjoin the Texas abortion law' violated the same criminal law that almost all of the Jan 6 Capitol cases have been charged with.

RE: Democrat policies
Apparently General Milley completely vitiated the civilian chain of command post Jan 6.

According to the new Bob Woodward book, Pelosi called Milley telling him to short circuit President Trump. After that call that Milley held a secret meeting at the Pentagon where he asked senior military officers to take an oath that no matter what Trump said, no military action could be taken without his involvement. He literally went around the room to make sure each person agreed.

Milley completely usurped the chain of command, and completely usurped the idea of civilian control of the military through the Commander in Chief.

At a minimum Milley should resign. What he did is a prison-level court martial offense, no hyperbolic statement. I am sure he will be denoted a heroic figure by progressives.

Whether you agree with the actions or not --- it is as close to a mutinous act as a flag level officer can engage in; and a complete anathema to the ideal of the chain of command, to the precept of civilian control of the military, and to the precept of the Commander in Chief.

It used to be the objects of military coups were embedded in our viewpoint as being right-wing based --- see the famous novel '7 Days In May' and the subsequent movie starring Burt Lancaster.

Apparently the people whom come the closest to implementing a military circumvention so in my lifetime was at the urging of the left (Pelosi) and literally at least partially undertaken at the behest of the left. Amazing stuff.

It seems accurate (and minimalist) to say Gen. Milley overstepped his bounds and quite literally took on aspects of the president’s authority as commander-in-chief that no one elected him to take on. And despicable that an elected official would spur him to do so.

This is a *lot* closer to a coup than a guy running around shirtless with chest paint and a horned helmet.

Other reports note that Milley contacted the mainland Chinese command and pledged to alert them to an attack if so ordered. Considering General Flynn had the book thrown at him by the full investigation to merely having a conversation with the Russian Ambassador, under the pretext of the Logan Act, I wonder how General Milley's actions with the Beijing military apparatus will be viewed or pursued.

And putting aside the legal ramifications of what Milley pledged to do (in both branches), they are still incredibly disturbing, disgusting acts on their face. There is no “Well, I didn’t agree with the president” exemption to the law in either instance.

RE: Democrat policies
And another gem drops today, this time in the taxing portion of the 'infrastructure' bill.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...ounts.html

Quote:The proposal would require banks to report to gross inflows and outflows to the IRS, including transactions from Venmo, PayPal, crypto exchanges and the like in an effort to fight tax evasion.

The IRS would know how much money is in an individual’s bank account in a given year, whether the individual earned income on that account and exactly how much was going in an and out.

So, all your banking records get shoved into a pipeline to the IRS. I guess the 4th Amendment requiring probable cause is just the latest inconvenience to the progressive outlook.

Anyone see the common thread to the four items I have posted here today? Between the 4 above, and Biden's call for vaccine mandates, it really should be apparent that progressives have zero respect for the rule of law. As in zero, zilch, nada. I dont think one can take a look at the five items and, with a straight face, say otherwise.

In addition to to ongoing rising feeling that, in my opinion, in terms of left wing v right wing, the left wing simply doesnt give a rat's ass on legal or illegal, Constitution or no Constitution. The rationale is all important.

The left wing wants what it wants, and whether or not the constitution or fairness or the law agrees them, to hell with it, they want it any way they can get it..

One reason I would have to have doubts about voting for any democrat these days - the crew they are surrounded and supported by.

Remember the left these days has more in common with Lenin and Stalin than with Washington and Jefferson - the latter two were wealthy slaveowners. The former two believed in the dignity of the working man and improving the lot of the poor. They believed in taxing the rich, same as AOC and the entire Democratic Party.

RE: Democrat policies
The funny thing -- Everything they said Trump was— Biden and the rest of his ilk is or wants to be explicitly..

Im sure well have lad come and rationalize the refusal to adhere to the chain of command is decent.

Or how Pelosi urging what is literally a military takeover is non-problematic.

Or how demanding Amazon change their algorithms to smother speech Warren and Schiff dont like is common and proper.

Or how how wonderful the rule by Executive Order is completely righteous to mandate how everyone treats their bodies,

Or how and how it is completely proper that the government has instant access to every single detail of your banking without any probable cause -- simply based on the idea that one is a taxpayer.

Perhaps we will get a running 'how good it is' for all of them at once.

Everything that has been said as overarching about Trump, as a theory, is now being considered as policy by the left. And, I am sure that the sound of silence will be the response.

RE: Democrat policies
Today ---

Sen. Rand Paul: "The guy the Biden administration droned: was he an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?"

Sec. Blinken: "I don't know because we're reviewing it."

Sen Paul: "You'd think you know when you offed someone with a Predator drone whether he's an aid worker or an ISIS-K"

Here is what I imagine happened --- Pres Bumble **** is taking heat for his 'plan' in scooting out. Suicide bomber offs 13 of our finest. To cover his ass, Bumble **** says 'get someone, anyone'.

So they double down on the fktardness with a hasty decision to wax the poor schmoe.

Now, the idiots cant even tell us who he was.

Just. Absolutely. Amazing.

We have two sets of Defenders of the Faith - one called the Taliban, the other called Democrats.

Both sets have been taken over by the radicals within their ranks.

Both sets are trying to rule a country.

Both sets care nothing for individual freedom.

This stuff is getting weird.

potty training cows

"...nitrous oxide is a very potent greenhouse gas, with 296 times as much global warming potential as CO2,” and livestock produces “more greenhouse gases, than all the cars, trucks, planes in the world, combined.”


For places like the Netherlands, however, which is considering plans to force hundreds of farmers to cut livestock numbers to reduce damaging ammonia pollution, the financial upside of training cows to pee in a toilet is that they could sustain bigger herds, Matthews said.

Oh, goody, government mandates to save the world from cow pee. A move to warm the heart of any progressive. After the Netherlands and New Zealand, how long before the US is involved?

Also, I guess this means "free range" cattle will become a footnote of history.

I wonder what will e done about all those elk, moose, deer, bison, oxen, etc.? I guess all those animals in Yellowstone will be deemed a threat to...Yellowstone.

RE: Democrat policies
I think it was Tanq who noted that as part of one of the Democratic omnibus bill(s), they want banks to report financial activity from Paypal, Venmo, et al.

(When did spying on Americans become part of infrastructure?)

In any case, this notice appears on my internet bank statement:

"Protecting your financial privacy and security is part of our commitment to putting You First. While we typically do not raise issues occurring in Washington with our customers, Congress is considering requiring financial institutions to report detailed information on customer bank accounts to the IRS. If you disagree with these new requirements, we encourage you to contact lawmakers today."

I suppose the left wingers here are looking forward to justifying and explaining every deposit and cash withdrawal from their accounts when audited - or maybe audited because of them. I made a $500 cash deposit yesterday. Not only can I not account for the source of every penny today, I doubt I will have any idea three years from now if asked by an auditor. Maybe the lefties keep more detailed records than I do, and enjoy Big Brother asking. I don't.

Plus, this burden will be a cost to banks, a cost passed on to customers.
