      What is this supposed to mean? If you like conservative viewpoints, Biden stated “you ain’t black”, an incredibly racist comment that demeans the individual. Repeating that here without context does not help.

      A conservative celebrates the individual, and Constitutional axioms like all mankind is created equal. Rights bring responsibilities and freedom, notably freedom from government intervention (the negative rights that are so important to out system of laws).

      The point is Democrats have put African Americans in a voting box and locked it, and then chastise them for breaking the voting bloc. In reality, the Democrats are not doing anything worthy of continued support. President Trump is pointing this out, and breaking that voting pattern will knock a critical support pillar out from under the Democratic platform.

    Uber is truly one of the most evil companies in the world. Their business model was simple. We’re going to do what we want, and let’s see if anybody can stop us. Laws be damned. When I look at this Coronavirus response by Democratic politicians and the media, I get the feeling that they’re operating under the same principle. Laws be damned. Constitution my ass.

They have Uber-ized the trucking industry as well. Stacey Abrams touched on it in her reply to the State of the Union a couple years ago. Now FedEx is heading in that direction. I get pop-up ads from them everyday, business opportunity. Yeah, some opportunity. You buy the truck, insure the truck, maintain the truck, store the truck, pay your own taxes, pay your own health insurance. F*** that.

          You see it works like this, Perot. You have a guy come in from Mexico who in an earlier life would have been picking strawberries. But now they sign him up for $200,000 truck, and count him as a entrepreneur. Then they’ll tell you that foreigners have higher rates of entrepreneurship than native-born Americans. Not many Americans are willing to go in hock for 200 Grand just for a job. So then they tell you there’s a shortage of truck drivers, as opposed to a shortage of people dumb enough to borrow 200 grand just to go to work. Now go take some oxycontin and die off, will you.

            I’d say America is about freedom to choose. The taxi laws put a strangle hold on one of the most common professions in NYC, favoring the cronies. Keeping costs high thus rates high. It got to the point that most people couldn’t even afford to take a cab, and the ones who could had private car service. You literally had poor people saving up so that when they went into labor, they could get a cab. Do I like Uber? Not really. But Uber wouldn’t exist if there wasn’t a problem with the current system. The Dems create problems and then villify people who see an opportunity to cash in on solutions.

            Speaking of, the “gig” economy is also the result of Obamacare. The idea that healthcare should be the burden of small employers was insane. They can’t afford it. So they laid people off, and “contractor” gigs like Uber were born.

            Don’t like it? Find a way to lower healthcare costs so it’s affordable. The ACA did nothing but raise costs.

              How to lower health care costs? Get rid of employer pre- tax insurance purchasing.

              Let us all find our own. Like car insurance.

              The final piece I am not sure about: have some way to pressure people to get health insurance. Obama care tax penalty is an example.
              I don’t have to get my kids vaccinated, but I am pressured because I cannot get them into preschool, daycare, school, or camp unless vaccinated.

              Also: what I pay in insurance premiums is tax deductible.

              The main thing is: it all can be figured out Once we end employer pretax health insurance policy: Wage Stabilization Act

        • starfcker- you make a very good point about the driving industry and freelancers, but I think that the E-commerce business tops it, if for no other reason than it is more ubiquitous. Millions of people are now selling stuff online on the various platforms like Ebay and Etsy which I’ll use as examples. (forget Amazon for now, , their model is slightly different).
          For example- If you sell on Ebay, you first have to buy the merchandise, then you have to photograph it and list it. You also have to pay for the packing supplies, postage, etc. Every single expense connected with selling that item is borne by the seller..

          Ebay provides a platform but that’s it. They have zero merchandise of their own. The sellers take all the risk and Ebay charges them fees, every step of the way that amount to nearly 25% of each sale and in some cases more than that. Etsy is the same deal but even worse because they are basically run by NY/Lib/Communist Social Justice Warriors.
          Don’t get me wrong, I am a great believer in Capitalism, but as you pointed out, the gig economy is often not what it’s cracked up to be. Most people who sell stuff online would make more money if they got a job at Home Depot or Walmart. A lot more.

            As someone who has sold on both Etsy and Ebay, I disagree. Ebay provides protections to buyers and sellers. If you are ripped off by a seller, Ebay provides the means to open a dispute and get your money back, especially if you use PayPal.

            The cost of running a brick and mortar store is borne by the seller, and then passed into the consumer through pricing. It’s the same in Ebay and Etsy. My prices included compensation for my time, my packing supplies, all the associated costs. If I pay to have my item highlighted, if I free shipping? The cost is actually built into the price of the item.

            If I were paying rent to a have a storefront, I would still have to buy merchandise and market it, pay employees, have insurance. Those costs would be built into my prices as well. I don’t see the difference.

            The problem with Etsy is their fees keep getting higher while the requirements you have to meet to actually be “promoted” have become really onerous and a burden. In other words, the sellers don’t have enough control over their own marketing and sales, and so people are leaving the platform in droves.

            I do prefer brick and mortar stores, and buy in person as much as I can. When I was selling on line it was a specialty market I was tapping into. I sold homeschool materials on EBay, and I had a custom wedding invitation on Etsy. My local market didn’t have enough business in either area, so having access to an online customer base was great for me.

            Is Ebay still picking and choosing which items and sellers are favored in their search engine? When the CEO was an Ozero adviser, things were a disaster for small sellers. It also happens to be when they started favoring China sellers and got that sweet USPS deal for them.

            • PJ- you are spot on. And things have gotten much worse in regard to picking winners and losers, both with Ebay and Etsy.

              As far as the sweet USPS deal with China, aka E-packet- that is a whole other story that should never have been allowed to happen in the first place, and I was hoping that Pres. Trump would do something about it as part of his dealings with China.
              E-packet allows China to mail small packages to the US virtually free of charge. The same package that would cost me $5-7 dollars to send within the US costs the Chinese sellers close to nothing.
              You probably know how that has worked out- mass produced, sweat shop goods from China have flooded the online marketplaces, often masquerading as “vintage” or “designer” goods.
              No American seller can compete with China’s advantage so many of them join the club- buying and reselling cheap Chinese crap.
              Look up the story of E-packet and you can see how unfair it is to American sellers and consumers. No way can we compete with this unfair advantage that’s being given to our ENEMIES.
              I would love to know just which Congress people are getting paid off for this one.

                Oh, I know. Ebay has punished their US sellers horribly – except for the big corporate ones – in many other ways also. Their evil search engine, combined with the known spying by 0’s agencies and big tech, makes me suspect that they were shadow-banning sellers who had frequented conservative sites. Everyone I knew who was being targeted was a small seller, pro-America, and politically/socially conservative. These folks went from earning a good living, to losing their online businesses due to no fault of their own.

                  I am so glad you posted this because it is the sad truth. I don’t sell that much on Ebay so I didn’t realize that they were doing it too, but it doesn’t surprise me.
                  Etsy has to be the absolute worst. Beyond a shadow of a doubt their robots scan FB and other social media groups to target politically incorrect sellers.
                  Years ago I made the mistake of going on their BS forums and making a political comment that could be conceived as “conservative/ right wing”. Not only did they remove the comment, but they perma muted me (thank goodness) and shadow banned my shop for quite some time.
                  The Etsy drones are as bad as the Chi Coms. They brook no dissent when it comes to politics. They have their own social credit system too.

    Segueing off of a few of my previous posts, I’d like to step out of the minutia and ask a few important questions. (No disrespect meant to details or points of origination, but we may be letting some important items slip. Or simply ignored them.

    I invite everyone to ask any simple, important, ignored questions.

    1. Can Sundance or others ascertain if there is a Grand Jury seated?

    (Joe D & George P say yes. Joe D claims Durham is do serious, those who have gone before the GJ are keeping quiet.)

    2. Has DOJs Brandon Van Grack been fired, demoted, or resigned?

    3. What legitimate reason does AG Bill Barr have for not firing Chris Wray?

    (Burying exculpatory evidence in the DOJ for 3 years is either willful incompetence, or skullduggery.)

    4. OIG Michael Horowitz was conducting a large leak investigation about one year ago that identified 50 – 100 FBI agents & staff who leaked & took bribes. Status?

    (I thought it was ongoing and Horowitz only gave us a few examples as to how complex the leaks were. Wray promised new training. (Swamp.))

    5. Gina Haspel update? (Rumors floated z year ago that a high-level CIA official was cooperating w Durham.)

        I have noticed that this site is very diligent with working from evidence, especially government documents.

        Evidence to support what is being said cannot be found. If evidence were available (and I have personally looked for it), I believe it is highly likely that it would have been presented.

        Also, there are previous claims that have been throughly debunked. The highest profile example is Jeff Sessions being helpful to justice. Even Trump has tweeted dissatisfaction with his choice in Sessions this year.

        That’s not to say none of it is true. If evidence arises that any of the facts are true then great but until then it is counter-productive to assume hopeful events are happening behind the scenes

      Spiked story is either lousy or intentionally inflammatory.
      Two points. First, testing numbers are not “fake.” They are simply not very representative.
      Second: corona death toll is high. If there would have been for example 1000 people with leukemia and flu would have contributed to 100 dying of leukemia, we instead have 1000 people with leukemia and 200 dying, some where flu contributed to death by leukemia and some where corona contributed to death by leukemia.

      This should not be ignored in the effort to produce more webpage clicks or to use corona as yet another bludgeon against Progs.

      The Progs are so far gone that no hyperbole or prestidigitation of facts is needed.

        Testing number are fake if they are not fully and accurately reported. The report of numbers infected is the hyperbole as there is no mention of distribution of positive outcomes, plus the number of the same size is always left out. So, the rates reported are flat false as they are discrete numbers of cases and not rates.

        The rates if accurately reported have dropped dramatically. Plus, there is still fraud in the reporting as ALL diseases have been lumped under CV-19 as the cause and democrat civic leadership has purposely created incubator like conditions in a further attempt tp pump up numbers. The test numbers reported are fake.

After so many disappointments I’ve become conditioned to think ahead as to “what’s their next move…what’s their goal?” If this is the end all, Sullivan is playing defense. If this is but another move, the DS is still on offense. And if that’s the case, I just wonder if they’re hoping to plant this in front of Roberts.

      As far as their goal, it’s to keep Flynn off the playing field as long as possible, at least until after the election. They’d enjoy most having Sullivan adjudicate Flynn guilty (even with a suspended sentence). Then they could sit back as the pressure builds on POTUS to issue a pardon. A pardon gets DS off the hook, but POTUS won’t fall for it.

      PatrickS, the judicial power of the US extends only to “cases and controversies.” As soon as the DOJ and Flynn jointly moved to dismiss, the case and controversy, and with it, judicial power ended. Poof. Over.

      Sullivan’s actions in inviting amicus briefs and engaging counsel are an extra-judicial “frolic of his own.”

      “Make him dismiss (I.e., close the case on his docket) as he is obligated to,” said Sidney’s writ to the DC Circuit Court if Appeals. “Your response, Judge Sullivan,” they asked?

      “I need a lawyer,” says Judge Sullivan.

      Makes no sense whatsoever in the ordinary exercise of judicial power, where trial judges decides cases, appellate courts review and decide appeals from those decisions. Only a party to a case or controversy may appeal a lower court decision, so, no, Sullivan can’t himself appeal any ruling by the court of appeals in USA vs Flynn. If “slapping” Sullivan around involves a new case against Sullivan for misconduct, that would create a new case and controversy in which Sullivan is himself a party, and in which he has a right to counsel, a hearing, decision by a different judge or panel, and appeal from that.

      My theory is that the Deep State has some improper lever of influence over Sullivan, and wants him to prolong things for narrative timing purposes, and/or to share sealed documents with them via his counsel. It is also possible that one of the supposedly active but secret good-guy investigations we imagine are laboring along in pursuit of truth and justice has turned the judge into a confidential informant, and is collecting evidence on how the deep state illegally controls judges.

      The narrative-timing purpose seems more plausible, but is less hopeful.

      Theory:

      Sullivan will, shortly, commit a crime.

      He will ignore the demand of the panel and will be found in contempt of court. At that point their will be trial on that crime in which Sullivan will be the accused. To preserve the rights of the accused, judgement, and all evidence on Flynn will be held in its current state.

      Sullivan defense attorney will claim: “….judge could refuse a government motion to dismiss if doing so were in the best interests of the public.”

    So does this evidence suggest that possibly many of our Judges may have been compromised?

    Think about that……..

    We know there was MASSIVE spying from 2009-2016 on thousands of Americans INCLUDING JUDGES.

    How do we know this?

    Simple, by the statement from Dennis Montgomery a Registered WB when he said this…….

    “I produced 600 million pages. If you printed out each page it would be thirty miles high stacked one on top of another. The information is very sensitive information. They collected google searches, credit cards, phone records, images, pictures, anything and everything, and they did it for one reason: LEVERAGE. They didn’t know when, but they knew sooner or later they would need that information to use for leverage against a person … The amount of information is mind-boggling, and I gave all of that to FBI Director Comey’s office.”

    This plus…….
    1) Adm Rodgers 6 month audit which found 85% of the searches non-compliant

    2) Judge Collyer’s 99 page report also supporting this abuse

    3) and don’t forget the 47 Hammer Hard Drives with millions of pages of evidence turned into the FIB in 2015 by the man who actually did the spying.

    So add all of this up and some of the other recent stuff regarding surveillance and unmaskings on Gen. Flynn and it becomes OBVIOUS to most IMO that spying on Americans to gather information for the purpose of future LEVERAGE from 2009-2016 may have always been the plan.

    SO, DOES AG BARR SEE THIS??????

    Federal Judges may have been compromised. Think about that!

    This screams IMO a much deeper dive, damage assessment investigation is needed ASAP.

    One that begins with the simple question…….

    WERE FEDERAL JUDGES INCLUDING POSSIBLY SUPREME COURT JUSTICES SURVEILLED FROM 2009-2016 AND IF SO, WHO AND HOW MANY TIMES WERE THEY SURVEILLED??

    Imagine, if this is true and they found evidence that somebody like Justice Scalia May have been frequently surveilled before his untimely death??

    IMO, if there is one standard of justice for all as Barr says, how can this investigation be ignored??

    To ignore it IMO means, one standard of justice is just words and just BS.

    Maybe it is time people begin to ask, was Russia Collusion to get PT the COVER-UP and spying, gathering info on Americans for future leverage was their real sin and what they wanted hidden all along???

    IMO the facts and evidence sure seem to point that way.

    The question is does Barr see and know this and will he look back???

    IMO, ONLY if Grenell keeps exposing the documents and the evidence.

    Produce one NSA report that shows unequivocally that if indeed Judges were surveilled then it should all unravel after that IMO.

    After all we ALREADY have a statement from a Registered WB claiming this!!

    The fate of the Republic sits in Mr. Grenell’s hands IMO.

    The Moderna vaccine, championed by Dr. Fauci and financed by Bill Gates, caused “serious injury” in 20% of the people to whom it was administered. It was a small group study.”

    We know Mr. Grenell is now officially NOT going back to Germany as the ambassador.

    So it begs the question, where is he going? Retiring? I think not.

    So the better question is, where is the best spot for him to provide maximum damage to the DS?

    Options:

    1) stay as DNI Director, which would mean PT would have to swear Ratcliffe in first as DNI Director and then immediately move him to another position (maybe Acting FBI Director?). This way Grenell gets ANOTHER 210 days to serve.

    2) Move Grenell to NSA Director which is under Radcliffe, where he can do deep dive digging and report generation of all the Prior Contractor Spying done using the NSA database? Basically pick up where Adm Rodgers left off.

    3) Move Grenell over to become Acting FBI Director but with his first action being he will “continue” with the internal investigation that Wray announced just days ago. (Note the libs can’t say anything as he is just continuing the already announced investigation)

    Side note: on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being high confidence. What confidence grade do you give Wray vs Grenell in terms of any internal FIB investigation??

    IMO we should see this move this week, hopefully even tomorrow but it is clear, Grenell has now become the most important asset within the Trump Team IMO even more so that Barr and Durham.

    Dear Mr. President,

    Here is a simple litmus test for you.

    Ask AG Barr if he or Durham have……

    1) Spoken with Julian Assange yet?

    2) Spoken with Registered WB Dennis Montgomery who used the Hammer to spy on Americans yet?

    3) Spoken to the 2 Uranium One WB’s yet?

    4) Where is the Wiener Laptop and the 47 Hard Drives Montgomery gave the FBI in 2015

    Now go ask Sidney Powell if she was the WH Justice Czar or AG how long it would take her to speak to these folks and how quickly would she have you an answer on the Wiener Laptop and those Hammer Hard Drives.

    My guess is you will get very different responses.

    Try it Mr. President, I think you will find it an interesting exchange.

      Hong Kong currently has special exemptions and privileges for trade. China uses those exemptions to bypass the tariffs.
      Look for those exemptions to go first.
      The Senate already has a bill in progress to sanction China and some of their leaders.

      Hong Kong may, and most likely will, become a lost cause. But China will pay. Guaranteed.

    It seems pretty clear now, Obama under his own order, executive order 12333, says to Clapper (DNI) – go get Flynn’s phone calls of 12/29/16. Clapper (DNI) in turn tells Comey (FBI) to get them.

    After Donald Trump won the presidency, Barack Obama and his minions in the White House hatched a plan to ensure they could keep enough power to eventually overthrow the new president. Obama accomplished this by signing an executive order on January 3rd, 2017, with only 17 days left in office.

    Note: Obama EO was issued on 1/3/2017

    Obama ordered the spying on Flynn!

      ipt, one must always consider, Obama did not need to issue an order. These guys are hive-minds. They do not need to be told.

      Recall, Obama had been spying, unmasking, and using the NSA DB for years. It was not abnormal, it was SOP.
      There was a Strzock-Page txt msg that said “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”
      They did not need to be told what or how to do something. They had already been doing it for years.

    Is it me or has PT stepped up his messaging about Obama of late and is that because Barr has said he won’t investigate Obama?

    To ignore 2009-2016 spying and gathering information on thousands of Americans including possibly judges is unconscionable IMO.

    Worst than Session recusing himself.

      Although I think Barr should have kept quiet about it, I think prosecuting obama would be a bad idea.

      Every president could be prosecuted for something after his presidency that the opposing party thinks is criminal.

      It wasn’t that long ago that there was talk of prosecuting GW for war crimes, and they have already impeached PDJT. I’m in favor of dealing with presidents at the voting box.

      Not to mention, I think obama was like a mafia boss and just appointed people to power who would “know” what obama wanted without being ordered.

        OK ..so Obammy can’t be investigated or prosecuted because it would set a bad precedence? But a sitting President can be falsely accused, investigated, impeached…I am tired of the Republican high road.It doesn’t matter to the democrats they will walk all over you. Obama is a corrupt crook who is allowed to parade around making millions and still trying to undermine PT presidency. Do you realize by not prosecuting a criminal who happens to be an ex president you setting a BAD precedence and invitation for future Presidents to feel untouchable and free to break the law.
