Matt Gaetz introduced legislation Tuesday to abolish the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). “USAID does not serve a meaningful purpose,” he said. “It is used as a slush fund for international ‘wokeism.’ Therefore, serious lawmakers in Congress should support its complete abolition.” …Co-sponsors on this bill include GOP Reps. Andy Biggs, Arizona; Marjorie Taylor Greene, Georgia,  and Anna Paulina Luna, Florida.

Myocarditis Cases in U.S. Military Spiked by 130 Percent | 31 July 2023 | Data presented to Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin by a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) whistleblower highlights reports that American servicemen and servicewomen have suffered serious injuries related to COVID-19 shots, including a 130 percent increase in myocarditis cases. Sen. Johnson said: “Based on data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), Thomas Renz, an attorney who is representing three Department of Defense whistleblowers, reported that these whistleblowers found a significant increase in registered diagnoses on DMED for miscarriages, cancer, and many other medical conditions in 2021 compared to a five-year average from 2016-2020.” The DoD whistleblower provided Sen. Johnson’s office with new information showing significant increases in specific registered diagnoses from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) in 2021 compared to a five-year average from the period 2016-2020. The whistleblower downloaded the DMED data early this year after DoD acknowledged in 2022 that DMED data had been corrupted and that they would fix the database system.

It’s Time to Have a Serious Talk About George Soros Protégé Vivek Ramaswamy | 1 Aug 2023 | You can scrub the globalism off of a Republican presidential candidate’s Wikipedia bio, but you can’t take the globalism out of the candidate’s heart. That’s the message that Republican voters should take away from GOP primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy’s appearance on a Twitter Spaces event over the weekend. Ramaswamy stated that it was a mistake for President Trump to pull the U.S. out of the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement that was drafted by Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Barack Obama. There it is. Vivek Ramaswamy has shown his true self: a globalist… Globalists like Vivek Ramaswamy will tell you that multinational “free trade” agreements always benefit both countries. That’s just a lie. It benefits the companies that can afford to ship their operations overseas, to countries like China or Vietnam or Brunei where they pay their workers slave wages. American middle-class workers can’t compete with slaves in other countries.

Democrats Ask Biden to Declare Emergency as Illegal Immigrants Flood NYC and Request Administration Allow Migrants to Work in U.S. | 31 July 2023 | Fifty-four elected officials in New York City have sent a letter to President Joe Biden to address the influx of illegal immigrants in the city, asking him to declare a federal state of emergency so that the illegal immigrants can legally work in the country. “We are elected officials from New York City requesting your help. Our City is experiencing an unprecedented migrant influx, with a surge of asylum seekers arriving here in numbers never seen before in history. Our City is at a breaking point,” wrote New York City Assemblywoman Jenifer Rajkumar… Last week, the city announced it would set up a shelter for 1,000 illegal immigrants in the parking lot of a state psychiatric hospital. The special use case was made possible by the state of emergency, which allows for use of additional resources without additional red tape… The 54 Democratic lawmakers also requested that the Biden administration allow the illegal immigrants to work in the country.

  1. There’s a shocker! Much like the obituaries written far in advance of celebrities/people of note’s demise, I’m guessing that the lamestream media had this headliner and associated story prepped months ago – if not years ago!

  2. Yeah, this headliner was written by Trump himself on 1/6/2021 and let the punishment fit the crime.

    • Isn’t there a better forum where you can spew moronic political propaganda and have someone buy into it? Asking for a friend, of course.

  3. Let’s get real! It is time for an alternative to the endless excuses, and rationalizations. Trump precipitated this entire disaster. It is time for him to admit to his charade, to his lies and to his malfeasance. It is time for his to stop the name calling and to accept his loss.

    I think most of us have taught our children to be graceful even in defeat. (A lesson from Little League.)

    Why don’t we expect the same thing of someone in the White House.

      • Not my Biden. I like Will Hurd and Asa Hutchinson. They (plus Chris Christy) are directly addressing Trump’s actions related to the indictments.

        I think Chris Christy has too much bravado! But at least he has landed some direct rebukes of Trump.

      • Yeah Pete, Those are some real winners you have there. Your candidate filter is broke. Trump was under attack from the minute and even before he announced his run for president. What is wrong with you people for failing to see he was set up from day one because he is a threat to all the snakes in DC. I can’t believe how gullible people are. Keep listening to the alphabet news channels until you are forced to speak Chinese or Russian. I’ve been saying for months that we are living the idiot apocalypse. Comments that deal with the never Trumpers like yours gave us Joe Biden and I blame people like you who can’t use critical thinking to see what has transpired over the last 6 years.

      • Why is it every time I hear the name, Chris Christie, a box of Krispy Creme donuts appears in my mind? Bill Hurd? The RINO shill booed off the stage in Iowa? The comedy routines are so off the charts my ribs are starting to hurt. New t-shirts and bumper stickers coming, TDS, find a cure! If they can grift, we may as well too.

    • Yeah, I know, Biden really got 81 million votes. And the states of PA and Wisconsin changed their election laws in the middle of an election without the approval of their legislatures as prescribed by the U.S Constitution. Winners never cheat and cheaters never win. (Also, a little lesson from little league.)

    • Little League games aren’t stolen by the opposing team. Politicians going along to get along and to also build their personal wealth is why this country and state are in trouble. The DC swamp will protect itself from outsiders and Trump was an outsider. Keep believing that things are fine in DC and vote for another RINO like any one of the 3 you named. $32 Trillion in dept, a proxy war with Russia, the dollar being replaced with other currency around the globe and the USA credit rating just down graded, a two tier justice system, rampant inflation and the green energy lie. I’m sure Asa, Will or Crispy Cream Christy can fix it if you believe in pixie dust, unicorns and the Wizard of Oz.

  4. Speaking as a conservative American -and perhaps for myself – there are a few things we may all need to reflect on for our leadership.

    At his core, Donald Trump is a poor excuse for a leader much less a person. Respecting our constitution and laws of the land are not to be found in his DNA unless it suits him. Unfortunately, many have used him to counterbalance the current administration and all its faults( of which there are many) as a means to remove them from office.

    I find it hard to believe in this nation of close to 350 million people we don’t have a person of quality who can step up and lead this nation to a path based on principals and a balanced fairness.

    Looking at both parties leaders today this is not to be found. Take this opportunity to recognize Trump’s shortfalls and illegalities and while we are at it it do the same for Joe Biden.

    We are better than this.

    We deserve better.

    If we do not, we deserve the outcome.

  5. What is the best way to introduce evidence? A trial of course ! Love it ! I think there will be some eye opening coming 🙂

    • Are you speaking about Biden? I sure hope so. Get ready, get set…..

    • If something eye opening was going to be revealed about his actions it would have happened by now. Let’s look at the revelations have been revealed like the FBI was on site and knew about the event in advance and did nothing to stop it or the fact that the Capital Police opened the door and told people that the building was open and to go on in, aka entrapment. Trump requested the National Guard to be dispatched and on site but the request was denied by Pelosie.

      • CJ, I’m sorry but you can’t explain facts to a public brainwashed by 6 years of lies about Trump. Unlike, the Biden crime family that needed to launder Chinese and Ukrainian pay to play illegal money, scuffled through 20 LLC illegitimate companies, Trump made his own way before running for president. He isn’t owned by the political establishment, doesn’t need any more money and wants to drain the District of Corruption swamp, he is a danger to the players who put America $32 Trillion dollars in debt and have bankrupted America. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see, isn’t that right JayDee?

  6. My conspiracy theory bingo card is nearly full! The alien disclosure was a flop – being the “former marine” was wearing a masonic pin on his tie, so I removed it from my card. As luck would have it, we have another indictment, Yippee! Soon enough, we will get truth-based evidence submitted regarding J6 and the fraudulent selection of 2020. The chicken dance lawfare warfare will hit new heights as American’s witness a legal system gasping and flailing for legitimacy and credibility. As I said many times before, Germany circa 1934. The trap is set, they are walking right into it, and these “cases” set a precendence to go after them – ooohhh…Does 45 look worried? Going back to him saying “we’ve got them all” leads me to surmise the defense will be introducing their evidence that will blow up the narrative, the media, and the swamp bigly. Seeing how Dan Goldman was sweating like a pig and babbling like a fool trying to defend 10% Joe was a glorious site to see. Carry on!
