‘Voter Suppression’ Mantra Derailing Sober Analysis of Election Laws, State Lawmakers Say

QUOTE: Contrary to the voter suppression mantra by the Democrats, election laws in blue states make it harder to vote than deep-red states, according to Jason Snead, the executive director of True, Honest Elections Project.

“Red states offer more early voting, more ‘no excuse’ absentee voting. When you look at the laws (blue states) have on the books, it is immediately apparent that deep red states make it easier to vote than deep blue bastions like New York and Joe Biden’s home state, Delaware,” said Snead, whose group works with Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in crafting model elections integrity bills carried by state lawmakers nationwide.

“The narrative that these (red) states are trying to suppress the vote is off the mark; the facts say otherwise,” he said. “I think the narrative has become deliberately misleading” and could backfire when voters see Democrats resisting efforts to shore-up issues in elections laws that polls show a vast majority nationwide support.

“Maybe we need to change the narrative,” Arizona’s Townsend said. “The Left calls it ‘voter suppression.’ We call it ‘cheater suppression.'”

2- More good news on the wonderful protection of natural immunity. This news is being ignored, so you know what to do.

New Study: 99% of All Covid Prior Infections Resulted in ‘Natural Immunity’ That Lasted at Least 650 Days

QUOTE: Johns Hopkins university this week dropped a quiet bombshell of an article that went widely ignored in the mainstream media.

Dr. Marty Makary, spearheading a team at Johns Hopkins to do the work that the CDC and NIH refuse to do, showed that 99% of unvaccinated people known to have Covid infections had robust “natural immunity” that did not diminish for at least 650 days.

Of 1580 individuals invited to undergo serologic testing, 816 (52%) did so between September 24, 2021, and November 5, 2021. Participants had a mean age of 48.0 years, 421 (52%) were women, and 669 (82%) were White (Table). Fourteen percent reported routine mask use in public. Anti-RBD and anti-N antibody presence/absence were correlated (95%; Cohen κ=0.908).

3- Our jaw dropped when we saw this exchange between the government mouthpiece and a reporter. First, it was stunning to hear any reporter push back on anything the Biden Regime is pushing out, much less an Associated Press reporter. Second, the level of lying by this government dweeb is disconcerting. See the video and the full transcript at the link.

State Department Spokesman Ned Price Absent After He Got Shredded By AP Reporter

QUOTE: State Department spokesman Ned Price was absent from Friday’s press briefing after giving his briefing on Thursday and stating that there was evidence that Russia was planning a false flag attack on NATO, complete with crisis actors.

The reporter, Matt Lee of the Associated Press, demanded to see evidence of such a plot and not simply the word of Price, and that is where things got heated.

“One possible option the Russians are considering, and which we made public today, involves the production of a propaganda video – a video with graphic scenes of false explosions – depicting corpses, crisis actors pretending to be mourners, and images of destroyed locations or military equipment – entirely fabricated by Russian intelligence,” the spokesman said.

“To be clear, the production of this propaganda video is one of a number of options that the Russian Government is developing as a fake pretext to initiate and potentially justify military aggression against Ukraine. We don’t know if Russia will necessarily use this or another option in the coming days. We are publicizing it now, however, in order to lay bare the extent of Russia’s destabilizing actions towards Ukraine and to dissuade Russia from continuing this dangerous campaign and ultimately launching a military attack,” he said.

If you think this sounds like something you would be more likely to hear from Alex Jones you are not alone. The AP reporter did too.

4- The Democrats never care who they hurt or inconvenience.


Dems ‘Exploiting’ Jan. 6 to ‘Destroy Trump’s Future’

QUOTE: Democrats are weaponizing the Jan. 6 attack to destroy former President Donald Trump just like they did with Watergate and former President Richard Nixon, says former Nixon White House adviser Pat Buchanan

“They’re using it to destroy Donald Trump, and to prevent Donald Trump from ever running again, because that is the great fear here,” Buchanan told Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM-N.Y.

“So, they are exploiting it. I went through this. There was no doubt that there were people lined up to break into Watergate and bug the telephones of the DNC. While it’s an outrage, it was not unusual in politics. But the handling of that by Nixon was used to destroy a president who had won 49 states. I think the same thing is going on here. The exploitation of Jan. 6 and the incident that occurred to destroy Trump’s future hopes for the presidency and to discredit his past.”

“A day doesn’t go by that this is not on American television and radio and left doesn’t use it in their media outlets,” he added. “They are not going to let it go because it’s the best weapon they believe they have to destroy [Trump] and to prevent him from running and winning again.”

The comparisons to Nixon and Watergate are not that far of a stretch, he continued.“Trump did not order or direct anything like that, and it’s the inability and failure to get that or find that, that is causing the frustration and rage on the left,” Buchanan said.

5- Well, we all need a little laugh now and then.  Is this karma?

Chris Wallace gets Trumpenfreude

QUOTE: Trumpenfreude is that feeling you get when you watch someone fall who tried to bring President Donald John Trump down. I stopped counting at 118.

This week — a year after Trump left office — was a spectacular week of Trumpenfreude. It began with CNN firing Jeff Zucker. It continued with a jury convicting the Creepy Porn Lawyer of swindling Stormy Daniels. And now it ends with Chris Wallace whining about Zuck’s departure and having no staff in his new gig at CNN-plus.

He left a $7 million a year job at Fox for an undisclosed salary at CNN-plus.He called it a new challenge. I call it Fox not wanting to pay $7 million a year for a drag on ratings.

Radar Online reported, “Defection Disaster: ‘Irate’ Chris Wallace Has Meltdown Over Jeff Zucker-Allison Gollust Scandal, Said To Be At War In D.C. Bureau With Jake Tapper.”

The story said, “Chris Wallace is irate at the ousting of CNN president Jeff Zucker and his future at the news network is uncertain.”
