Can Eleven Dollars Make a Difference

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-05-30 03:00 +0000

Each Sunday, I want to take a step away from daily politics and focus on someone who has done extraordinary things or who we may need to know a little better. This week’s focus is on Frank Siller.

Charities, Non-Profits, and Foundations have gotten their share of bad publicity over the years. The United Way decades ago was the favorite charity partner of many corporations. That was until it was discovered that the effort was a fundraiser for the executives and not the end-user. They cleaned up their act and are now a viable, efficient organization. Black Lives Matter is today’s target of criticism as the organizers and their families are reaping millions while the victims, which were the reason BLM started, received little.

Frank Siller seems to be the model all foundations can aspire to model. Frank started the Stephen Siller Tunnels to Tower Foundation to honor his brother. Stephen was a firefighter with the New York Fire Department on 9/11. Stephen heard the news of the first plane hitting the tower, donned his gear, ran towards the carnage to give aid, and never returned home. Stephen sacrificed his life to save others. Frank now honors his brother’s heroism.

We have all seen the ads. Wives are talking about the day they got word their husband would not be coming home. Hero husbands leaving families behind, either killed in battle or as first responders. We have seen the ad of brave men and women who served this country only to return home missing arms or legs or being disfigured by an exploding IED.

Frank Siller has devoted the last twenty years to helping those survivors of heroes who needed help putting their shattered lives back together. The Tunnels to Towers either pays off the outstanding mortgage for the surviving widow and family or constructs a custom smart house to make life easier for survivors of an accident or assault in the line of duty who has been rendered physically challenged.

T2T has collected over $250M to date and has built dozens of smart homes, and has broken ground of an entire community of 100 homes in Tampa, FL, for victims of battle. The property was donated by an anonymous individual with a huge patriotic heart. T2T is an efficient foundation, and 97% of all funds donated find their way to the end-user.

Under a new program, T2T will now build new mini-homes for homeless veterans. Over 25 veterans commit suicide every day. These homes and the support and counseling they need will help our veterans find their way back into society.

We should not need foundations like T2T, Wounded Warriors, The Gary Sinise Foundation, or Folds of Honor if our government did the right thing and took care of those who gave so much to keep us safe and America free. Our government is inept, and thank God we have people like Frank Siller who step up and fill the void. The people they honor and help are heroes. Frank Siller may not have gone to war or given the ultimate like his brother, Stephen, but he is just as much a hero.

God Bless you, Frank, and keep your mission true and successful.

What Happened in the NH House Should Be Investigated

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-05-30 01:30 +0000

[Background if you haven’t been reading GraniteGrok: before the vote in the NH House on Thursday, NH Governor Chris Sununu made it clear that he was siding with the Democrats against the Republicans – and Parents – on HB1431.  -Skip]

The two Republicans (not Democrats) who spoke first and urged NO votes on the Parental Bill of Rights (HB1431) cited Attorney General Formella’s opinion; the same opinion that was destroyed by the National Legal Foundation counsel AND the counsel to Speaker Sherm Packard. The Democrats didn’t need to lead the opposition. Instead, their Republican allies did so for them and with them.

Why were we put under a gag order by Speaker Packard on the NLF letter he received that eviscerated the pathetic Attorney General’s Letter?

I was told by the Speaker shortly before the vote that we had a “too small majority” problem.

What?

We want to thank NH State Rep Paul Terry, Prime Sponsor for HB1431, for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

Never would you hear such a statement made by a Democrat Speaker.

When the walk does not match the talk and the “show”, I’m old enough to know there’s more to hear and see. It looked far too planned and coordinated.

These and other related questions I will be pondering and exploring in response to this debacle.

Added: Republican NH Gov. Sununu Allies Himself with Democrats on Redistricting Process

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) has allied himself with Democrats on his state’s redistricting process.

On Thursday, Sununu promised to veto a Republican-designed redistricting map that would have benefited state Republicans by placing two radical Democrat members, Reps. Chris Pappas (D-NH) and Ann McLane Kuster (D-NH), in a head-to-head matchup in the second district. The map would also have removed the embattled Pappas from his stronghold in Manchester.

Is this just King George III 2022 or are there things far more nefarious going on?

This has to be unprecedented in the history of New Hampshire: a registered card carrying Republican Governor repeatedly shafting the State’s Republican majority Legislature.

America has to Kick the Kangaroo Out of Court – The trial lawyer knows his client, Michael Sussmann, is guilty as sin.

Granite Grok - Mon, 2022-05-30 00:00 +0000

The evidence is overwhelming that Michael Sussmann lied to the FBI. But the barrister has been very careful to not ask his client if he did it. If the client ever confessed to his trial lawyer; the lawyer would have to inform the court, and that just couldn’t be allowed to happen.

The trial lawyer knows the system and there are still ways to get his guilty client off. He looked for technicalities, and errors on the prosecution side, but there were none to be found.

The trial lawyer is lucky President Obama appointed the judge assigned to the case, and the judge’s wife is associated with Hillary Clinton. He will be biased and true to form many pretrial motions have already gone in the trial lawyer’s favor.

The Washington DC jury pool heavily favors progressive Democrats. They voted for Hillary Clinton 95 to 5. The Barack Obama judge allows three probably biased individuals to be seated on the jury. Sussman’s lawyer knows he has life where there should be none. As the old lawyer saying goes; “if you have the facts on your side, pound the facts; if you have the law on your side, pound the law; if you have neither the facts nor the law on your side pound the table.”

Sussman’s lawyer knows his client is guilty but has the most favorable jury possible, a sympathetic judge and he is going to pound as hard as he can. All it will take is one member of the biased Washington DC jury to turn its back on the evidence and Sussmann walks.

The mood at the meeting of the Democratic power brokers was dreary.

They could not understand how things could have gone so wrong. How their progressive ideas had turned into a national catastrophe. Inflation was ravaging people’s savings, the stock market was crashing, the southern border was a catastrophe with thousands of illegal immigrants along with human trafficking and American youth killing fentanyl crossing daily. Joe Biden’s cognitive dysfunction resulted in a hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan leaving Americans and American assets behind. Never before had America abandoned its own. Ukraine was on fire. George Floyd’s murder had allowed the progressives to solidify the black vote but the repercussions of the massive violent protests had been devastating. Inner cities were no longer safe and in progressive cities black on black crime/murders were epidemic. President Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain had been quoted as saying “the boss sometimes gets things mixed up in his head”. Everyone knew the extent of the understatement and the reality Biden was in cognitive decline. VP Harris was a cackling embarrassment.

The midterms were looming and by all measures, the Democratic Party was going to be massacred.

Progressives had tried to blame all of America’s problems on President Putin and it didn’t work. Blaming greedy oil companies for increased gas prices also flopped. They had tried to promote the “wins” of naming a black Supreme Court Judge, a cabinet full of equity appointments, and even a black gay press secretary. The public didn’t notice. Biden’s 1.9 trillion-dollar covid give away relief bill and trillion-dollar infrastructure bill along with his war on fossil fuels had backfired and ignited inflation. Six months of expensive consultant-driven focus groups which lead to labeling conservative Americans as MAGA supporters failed miserably. Turns out most Americans want a great country.

The American public was angry and appropriately not impressed. The progressives and the media Titians had lied to them, and their chance to show their displeasure was rapidly approaching.

There was only one thing to do.

The unscrupulous trial lawyers were loyal progressives and the techniques used in the ongoing Michael Sussman trial showed the way. Unlinked from the Justice System there was no limit to how low the progressive trial lawyer tactics would go. It was time to pound the table, and there were no rules on how hard to pound or who was to be pounded.

The progressive Democratic Party was clearly guilty of mismanaging America and with the midterm elections approaching the far-left loons and the radical elites were about to go on trial.

The jury was the American people and they could not be allowed to clearly see the truth. Emotion must be made to rule the day, because informed people would never vote for a continuation of the Biden administration catastrophe. The election judge, in this case, was supposed to be an unbiased media; but the progressives owned the judge{media} and there would be very little honest objective discussion of the issues. Progressives needed something to force antirepublican emotion on the people.

The leak of the probable overturning of Roe versus Wade was just what the doctor ordered.

Activating the feminist brain conditioning from years ago could be decisive. Perhaps a few violent riots, bra burning and hopefully the reemergence of vagina hats would help. The biased media will fan the fire as they portrayed nasty white republican men taking over the bodies of helpless women.

Putting the icing on the cake a mentally deranged white man killed black people in Buffalo.

It couldn’t be better for the progressives. It did not matter the killer was clearly psychologically unstable. It didn’t matter thousands of blacks were being killed in progressive cities by other blacks. All Republicans were racist white supremacists and conservative media’s replacement therapy was their mantra.

The progressive Democratic power brokers took heart.

The American voter had been fooled before and using these trial lawyer techniques, it could happen again. They had gotten Bernie Sanders out of the Presidential race and were able to get a cognitively impaired Joe Biden elected President. The General public had bought the media’s lies about Russian collusion and Hunter Biden’s laptop. The 50 intelligent agents who said the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation was the best scam ever. The Internet Judges, Google, Facebook and Twitter had suppressed not only the Hunter Biden story but systematically suppressed conservative speech. It would be hard, but it could be done again.

All across America progressive lawmakers are returning to their districts and states with nothing to offer.

They have no wins, but they really believe the American people are so foolish they can be blinded to what they’ve seen with their own eyes {CRT/groomers in their schools, empty store shelves, crippling energy/gas prices} and swayed by emotion. After all, the election court has been stacked with corrupt Judges {media/Tech Titans} determined to push their progressive agenda.

The progressive candidates will plead their case and be allowed to break every rule. Any small mistake from the Republican candidate will be blown out of proportion. Republicans will be called racists, misogynist, climate change deniers and much worse. Conservative social media accounts will be shut down and progressive vitriol will be all over Twitter and Facebook. Google will do its best to make sure conservative fundraising’s emails end up as spam.

And despite all the corruption and a biased election justice system;

Americans must overcome the progressive Kangaroo election court and pronounce sentence on the guilty progressives by doing one thing.

Voting!!!

2022 is here and 2024 is around the corner!!!

Both General Michael Flynn and Attorney Michael Sussman were accused of lying to the FBI.

General Flynn was set up by a corrupt FBI/DOJ, had his family threatened with imprisonment, a judge who was so bad he wanted a trial even though the DOJ withdrew its case, and Gen. Flynn had to be pardoned by the President to escape a politically contrived conviction. Several other Trump officials endured FBI Swat Team raids [one was conveniently filmed by CNN} and despite being no threat, themselves and their family were intimidated at gun point. Once again Presidential pardons were required to prevent political imprisonment.

Clinton operative Attorney Michael Sussman was treated with kid gloves, a sympathetic Obama Judge and given a defense lawyer dream jury. Even if convicted most likely the Obama Judge will go light on Sussman’s sentence. Sussman’s family is resting in the comfort of their home with no fear of a FBI Swat Team or imprisonment.

Readers are encouraged to come to their own conclusion about which political party is the best fit to run America.

“Political Leaders*” in Maine Talking About More Gun Control After Texas Shooting

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 22:30 +0000

Politicians are supposed to be temps, so calling them leaders is misleading. Whatever they are, temp or career, the longer they remain, the less able they are to follow their oaths of office. And nothing exposes this failure as a mass shooting.

The tragedy in Texas, much like Parkland, is evolving into a failure of government and “the system.” People who we were told were looking out did not. Obvious signs of trouble were ignored, and the result was an angry bully with violent tendencies knowing he could vent his rage on a soft target.

The problem isn’t firearms, and as others have noted, the answer to a few individuals misusing freedom is not to take freedom away from everyone.

If guns are the problem, why not attack a gun show, a shooting range, a police station, or anywhere you know people may be armed and trained to use firearms? Because the only person who ends up dead is you?

Disarming law-abiding citizens or coming up with ways to make it more difficult to exercise your natural right to self-defense has never worked. Just look at Chicago. More people die in the average weekend from violent crime in this gun-control mecca than died in Texas last week. And if it’s a tragedy there, why not every weekend in Chicago, Baltimore, or Los Angeles? Because they have all those gun laws already.

The law-abiding have or are being disarmed.

But Maine, like New Hampshire, is a Constitutional Carry State. It is also, like New Hampshire, one of the safest in the nation. Low violent and property crime. What crime there is gravitates toward liberal-run urban areas – which is true for most of the nation. Remove “common-sense” gun law cities LA, Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, and DC from the calculus, and gun-crazy America drops way down the list of countries based on the amount of crime.

But when tragedy strikes, the authoritarian tick compels so-called leaders to do something, and it’s almost always the wrong thing.

Maine, which like Vermont, has been pitching Left for years, wants to use some of the idiocy of action to make the land of the Lobster and Potato people less safe. Things like expanding protective orders and magazine limits. At some point, that will evolve into waiting periods, shall issue laws, location restrictions, and given time, Maine will be more like New York and New Jersey than New Hampshire.

None of those laws will prevent shootings. None of them reduce violent crime. Good guys with guns do that.

If you can’t or don’t want armed officers on campus, armed and trained volunteers in a school can end an active shooter situation in seconds or minutes. That applies to any location, not just a school. Churches, retail outlets, restaurants, and anywhere people gather might look like a good place for some douchebag to vent their rage. A rage that, despite all the chatter about mental health issues, always leaves them with enough clarity to pick targets least likely to present armed resistance.

They are always right enough in their mind to find some fish in a barrel. And that’s both the problem and the solution.

The answer is not to create more soft targets. And it is not to find ways to take freedoms away from more people (or everyone) because a few people abuse it.

We know the Left’s litany of “gun laws” do not stop violent crime. We have decades of proof in the FBI’s crime database. What deters is the risk or threat of armed resistance. The shootings only end when a good guy (or good guys) with guns show up to shoot back – who shoots back. And anywhere an armed presence is likely is less likely to be a target.

The answer is more armed law-abiding citizens, not fewer. More gun safety training, not fewer guns. But progressive politics can’t abide it, so we must suffer fools which, as we can see, continues to cost lives.

“Michael Graham: Solve Gun Violence?” America Can’t Fix Anything Lately

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 21:00 +0000

It does seem that America can’t even tie its own shoelaces anymore so this piece by Michael Graham at NH Journal hit home. I emailed him if we could cross-post his piece entitled “GRAHAM: Solve Gun Violence? America’s Pols Would Rather ‘Fight’ Than ‘Fix” with this:

…Yes, emphasis mine. And you are right, it isn’t about the Post Office.  I’ve come to realize that that rest of it is necessary to support the claim (which I believe to be true) that we can’t fix anything anymore for the reasons you state plus much more.

His response was yes: “All NHJournal and InsideSources content is available for republication — with attribution. Flattered you found it worth a re-read!  Continued success.”

I’ll bold the part that was in my email…and let’s see if you think the same.  I’ve also taken the liberty to emphasis other parts as well and added a few thoughts as well.

Watching the heart-wrenching scene of sobbing parents mourning school children lost to senseless violence, Americans are asking ourselves once again: “Why can’t we fix America’s gun violence problem?”

As an angry parent, fed-up political junkie, and sick-and-tired citizen, I’ll tell you why:

Because we can’t fix anything.

Fix America’s gun problem? There are an estimated 400 million guns in America right now in the hands of a nation with a culture of violence going back at least 300 years. And we’re going to “fix” mass shootings and gun crime?

Folks, we can’t even fix the post office.

Everybody knows America’s postal service is an obsolete anachronism from the pre-internet era, that driving around house-to-house six days a week to put pieces of paper into a metal box is a ridiculous waste of time and money. But just weeks ago we “fixed” it by committing more than $100 billion in taxpayer dollars to keep the rickety system running.

The point is not to pick on your local postal workers. The point is ending Saturday mail delivery should be simple. It is a picayune problem in our world of COVID, Ukraine, and school shootings.

But our politics are so broken we can’t get that done. And you want to solve the problem of gun crime?

America at the moment is out of the problem-fixing business. We’d rather “fight” than “fix.”

One reason is our lack of faith in our would-be “fixers.” As we learned the hard way during the COVID-19 era, America’s current crop of “elites” — the technocrats, bureaucrats, and politicians who are supposed to be in the solution business — are lousy at their jobs.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention might have many fine abilities, but “controlling and preventing disease” isn’t among them. The Food and Drug Administration’s mishandling of COVID tracking and testing made the pandemic worse, not better.

And the political class demonstrated again and again, from mask mandates to school lockdowns, that it is impervious to data. Did it matter that keeping kids at home was an educational disaster that set back a generation of disadvantaged children? Not a bit.

It was far more important for our elites to virtue signal than problem solve.

And can you blame them? Where is the evidence that American voters are even interested in problem-solving?

Who are two of the hottest fundraisers in American politics right now? The far left’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and the far right’s Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG). Both spout streams of extremist nonsense – from Modern Monetary Theory to “Jewish Space Lasers” – and the checks keep pouring in. Primary candidates covet their endorsements.

Setting aside how awful their ideas are, do either of these two even want political solutions? They’re fighters, not fixers.

Take the southern border crisis, for example.

One of the hope-inspiring stories emerging from the horrors of Tuesday’s crime is that the murderer was stopped by a Border Patrol agent who acted without waiting for backup.

Confronting school shooters isn’t technically a problem Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) agents are supposed to solve, but he did it anyway – and at the risk of his own life. The irony is his day job is to work on a problem we won’t let him and his fellow agents solve – the chaos at the border.

Is the border problem difficult to solve? Perhaps. But compared to fixing gun violence, it’s middle school math.

But are we “fixing” it? Is there any prospect of even considering a serious solution for our lawless, chaotic border?

No. Instead, we’re using a COVID health regulation to temporarily hold back a wave of migration the Biden administration knows is coming – and that is on top of April’s highest number of CPB “encounters” ever in a single month.

People – it’s a border. It’s not something impossible, like building a self-sustaining Mars colony or figuring out how to get your teens off Tik Tok. All 193 member states of the United Nations have borders, and few of them have the mess we do.

You want a relatively secure border? Put up some more walls, punish businesses that hire illegal immigrants, and deport people who aren’t supposed to be here. Then make it easier for legal immigrants to come here and eventually become Americans.

It won’t be perfect or impervious, but it will work. We just have to get it done.

Except – we are never going to do it. Team AOC will never accept deportations for immigration enforcement; Team MTG opposes immigration and businesses will stop writing checks to politicians if they lose their cheap labor.

And besides, there is a lot more political power from chants of “No More Deportations” and “Close the Border!” than from “We came up with a reasonable, bipartisan compromise that solved the long-term problem!”

What can we do about gun violence? Very little. But until we can stop fighting, stop turning political disagreements into character assassinations, stop declaring political compromise a crime — until we can stop making a virtue out of our willingness to commit rhetorical violence in the name of our petty partisanship — we won’t fix anything.

He’s not wrong, you know, in a lot of that.  I would have added the insanity of all of our overlapping and entirely pointless and at-odds-with-each other Laws and our joke of a regulatory system of overburdening policies and silly checklists to the point of being the most inane and stupid stuff you could think up.

And each one gobbles up time, talent, and lots of capital for not much bang for the buck.  I used to do business consulting and mapping how business actually accomplish their tasks – versus how they THOUGHT things were being done. We have too many agencies, too many bureaus, too many offices to have much efficiency at all…

…unless the over purpose IS to slow things down and make Govt overlords of the minutia in anything we try to accomplish.  Years ago, I could just go out and burn some of the dead wood that’s on my property – now, it’s do this, do that, and don’t you dare think about this other thing. Lowest common denominator, once again.

Just look at gas cans and Government STILL hasn’t bothered to realize that those that are striving to win Darwin Awards ought to be allowed to do just that instead of making rest of us miserable AND spilling more gas than we ever did.

But that’s considered to be a “fix”.

Graham has it right – politicians  have lost the trust we once had in them.  And that is the main problem. When they are off fighting instead of governing properly (e.g, stay in their lanes, observe boundaries, and remember THEY serve US instead of the other way around), more and more, the bureaucrats have become the Government we deserve.

Bette Midler, the Mouth That Roars

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 19:30 +0000

At this point in 2022 with elections looking to go very red in November the left is getting increasingly desperate. Celebrities seem near panic as evidence (has been) star Bette Midler, trying to be relevant, has reportedly urged demonstrators going to protest at the Republican National Convention “to go armed”. And here I thought Bette was one of those anti-gun liberals? Of course, perhaps she was suggesting water pistols but somehow that just doesn’t seem to fit the general conception of “going armed”. I must conclude that old witch must think all those speeches, all the hot air must be somehow a lethal threat to the rabble leftist mob which will be kept at a safe distance by police, or will they?

I just don’t know what Midler has on her mind but even suggesting these mobs of Antifa, BLM, and general nut cases should go armed to an adversary’s political convention goes way beyond any sane idea. All it would take is one nut, one crazy radical to start a de-facto civil war. If any prominent Republican would be shot – – well WW1 was started by a single radical killer.

Bette better hope that this poorly thought out inducement doesn’t come back to bit her ample butt. If the worse were to happen, she can’t unsay it, can’t claim it wasn’t what she meant, because no one will buy it.

This year, Marxist Socialists have proven beyond any reason that they are a disaster. The “Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight” looks like sharpshooters by comparison. And such a term brings me to a worst-case scenario: a civil war possibility. Some on both sides would like nothing better but that must be a last resort. Mostly I fear Antifa and BLM being the most likely instigators and the Left I’ve heard about seem to think our military will fall into their side. Given, as I estimate that about 90% of our military are Conservatives, I do not believe the Left has hope for that. The thugs and criminals of these domestic terrorist types, in large measure, have had no military training. Thus, it will fall to lawful gun owners, vast numbers of whom have had military training,  who can save our Republic if the military does not. I don’t think that will be necessary because, even though some top generals are Biden appointees, it is inconceivable to me that operational ranks would side with Marxists.

Save Us, Obi-Wan Kanobi, from This Troublesome Priest!

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 18:00 +0000

Never thought I’d write a title that would combine Star Wars and King of England Henry II but there you go!  Good ole Henry (ok, not so much) and the priest was Thomas Beckett who had excommunicated a number of bishops that supported Henry.

And yes, four knights did carry out Henry’s words as if it was a direct order which has passed down through the ages and whose “principle” still rides today when powerful/political people merely speak out and their supporters go forth.

Yes, I’ve twisted it a bit.

While it would be amusing to call Governor Groomer the modern-day King Henry, he really is the “troublesome priest” for the rest of us in that he decided to drop down from a moral governance model to rule our lives. Twice now, he has made it clear that Government is pre-eminent over we the people.  He believes that he no longer needs our consent – witness his “Public Health trumps Everything” during the pandemic in ruling (vs governing) how we would live our lives.

And now, he has decided that Parents SHOULDN’T be in charge and in control of their children when it comes to Education and being in school.  In this, he perfectly aligned with Biden’s Secretary of Education (and highly Progressive), Miguel Cardona:

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona refused to say that parents should be informed if their child is undergoing a gender transition at school during congressional testimony on Thursday. The secretary’s non-answer came under questioning before the House Education and Labor Committee by Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), who repeatedly asked Cardona if he thought schools should keep a student’s gender transition secret from their parents.

…”Should schools ever keep it a secret from parents if their children are involved in gender transition?” Banks asked again.

Cardona replied: “Schools should be partnering with parents on communication, and there are times when schools are working and supporting students on issues that are very sensitive, but I do believe that parents should be connected with schools, and, in many cases, working together is what’s going to help the student.”

“I have spoken to students who shared, whatever situation is at their home, that they felt safe at the school, and we have to be careful not to turn this into something that it’s not,” the secretary continued. “Our schools are safe places for our students, and our teachers are often the front-liners when it comes to supporting our students when they have issues in their lives.”

Cardona pussy-footed around but the intent was clear with his reference to “safe spaces” – note that he didn’t say that the child’s home was that “safe space”. Note, too, the “our teachers are often the front-liners” bit- and here I am thinking that Parents are ALWAYS the First Responders (leaving aside, for the moment, those parents who truly are unfit but who are a tiny percentage of Parents in the aggregate). This was a “side-eye” disparagement of Parents – and an underhanded disparagement against Parents.

Sununu, not being half the politician his Dad is, just blurted it out and made sure that Parents SHOULDN’T be involved in their child’s sexuality decisions while in school.  He fell hook, line, and sinker (or was he the behind-the-scenes guy in casting that hook, line, and sinker.) for the Left’s ideology that teachers are the new Parents.

He’s all in on the new phrase “What happens in Schools, stays in Schools”.  While that really is a Las Vega line, it is about the actions of consenting adults and the marketing nuance was “do what you want, we’ll keep your secrets”.  Who knew that school systems would adopt the same thought line and message for underaged, minor children?

Groomers, indeed.

So the question is, is Governor Groomer the new King Henry, and Parents are the new “troublesome priest(s)” in his worldview?  Or is it the other way around – is Sununu the priest that must be dealt with (politically) by Parents who are unwilling to allow Government to keep secrets from them when it comes to their children?

Frank Edleblut came within a hair’s breadth of beating Sununu in the primary three election cycles ago. Yes, GraniteGrok endorsed him at the time and I know that I would do so again.  He’s smarter than Sununu, more Conservative than Sununu, more thoughtful than Sununu – and is a self-made man instead of depending on Daddy’s money and contacts.

The above title aside, Frank isn’t a Wan-Kanobi, but certainly someone that understands boundaries and lanes for Government – and its Proper Role. The Left hates Edleblut because he understands that Government isn’t in charge of us, it should be the other way around. The Left sees Education as a wedge between parents and their children, Frank sees Education as what it was and is supposed to be – outsourcing of their child to teachers who have only certain things that they are supposed to teach but always knowing that Parents should be in control.

In this, Frank would be far superior to Sununu.

So, after all that, perhaps a twinge of Obi-Wan is there after all.

Survival Sunday

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 16:30 +0000

First, remember I am merely an “enlightened amateur” as far as anything survival goes.  Please vet & check on your own.  Consider these to be priming the pump for your own investigations.

Second, the hour is late and I fear bad times are imminent, but even a month of food, water, etc., puts you well ahead of most of the sheeple.  IMHO, set your minimum sights on a three-month period.

Third, two things will be critical for having the best chance of making it through:

  1. The proper mentality: first and foremost in survival is having a flexible mentality and cultivating the ability to adapt.
  2.

Short of years of preparation and untold wealth, you cannot possibly be fully prepared for everything.  But even some preparations, ideally at least 90 days of food, water / water purification, etc., puts you head and shoulders in front of the vast majority of the sheeple who will be in jaw-gaping astonishment when the SHTF.  The only relevant questions are:

  1. When does it start?
  2. How bad will it get?
  3. How long will it last?
  4. What will the aftermath look like?

“Experts” Run Cover For Their Latest Pfizer EUA COVID Drug Failure: Paxlovid

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 15:00 +0000

In April, we shared evidence that Paxlovid, another pricy Pfizer drug with Emergency Use Authorization to treat COVID19, didn’t. A month later, the CDC admitted that if you use Paxlovid to treat SARS CoV2, you could experience what they call “COVID-19 rebound.”

 

“Rebound” occurs when a person who completes the course of Paxlovid treatment ends up experiencing symptoms again two to eight days after initial recovery, or when a person has a new positive viral test after having tested negative.

 

Fear not intrepid followers of the corrupt FDA and CDC “public Health” machinery. These same experts say that “rebound” patients do not need more treatment, and experiencing rebound does not mean the treatment has failed.”

That sounds familiar. Get vaccinated so we can get back to normal, they said, but the new normal turned out to be that people who got vaccinated – whether or not the injection harmed them – became more susceptible to COVID19. The jabbed and boosted got sick in record numbers, but that wasn’t proof it didn’t work, except that it is proof.

Related: Is Paxlovid Pfizers’ New and Improved COVID Virus Trojan Horse?

And here we are once more with the CDC chasing the “disinformation spreaders” who called it when they saw it and were right again.

 

It turns out that Paxlovid reduces symptoms, and maybe reduces viral load at day 5, but at the same time it does not clear the virus! Not only that, but the patients cannot clear it for extended periods AFTER Paxlovid administration is over.

 

But this isn’t the first time the media has had to cover the problem. Back in April, about a week after those ‘disinformation’ websites were raising red flags on Paxlovid, NBC came out and said, “Pfizer’s antiviral pills are highly effective at keeping people with Covid out of the hospital, but there are growing reports that, in rare cases, patients treated for the coronavirus with Paxlovid can experience a second round of the disease shortly after recovering.”

NBC is back, a month later, to let you know that the experts have recognized the situation, and hey, it’s no big deal, except it is. Paxlovid costs nearly $900.00 a dose compared to HCQ and Ivermectin, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Zinc, which cost pennies per pill and help you survive and clear the virus naturally.

Those treatments are still shunned and, in some cases, scorned, despite mountains of evidence they work. But that’s the new normal for public health in America. Health is no longer the concern. Control is what matters.

Tragedy Politicking

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 13:30 +0000

I don’t want to write this – not now. I’m angry, and I’m sad. What happened less than twenty-four hours ago in Texas hurts. All I want to do is abide by Romans 12:15 “…weep with those who weep.” Looking through the pictures of those children, and reading their names, I could hardly do otherwise.

I don’t want to write this, but sometimes I don’t get to do as I please. Sometimes I’m pressed to do something in defense of myself and others – and, in this case, for those who I endeavor to represent. So, that’s what I’ll do, because I owe it to them to do so.

There are those in this nation, less than twenty-four hours after this tragedy – a massacre of children – who have stood on their still-warm tiny bodies to politick. They have not sought to unite, but to divide. What’s worst in this politicking is the manner in which they have done so: to present themselves as emissaries of Heaven with all the solutions to the evil in the heart of men.

We want to thank Michael Belcher for this Op-Ed.
Please direct yours to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

We have fundamentally divergent worldviews from these partisans. There are those of us who understand that we live in a fallen world, where the evil fires burning in men’s hearts cannot be extinguished by man, nor by institutions of man, nor by governments of man.

We understand the existence of evil is inherent, that terrible things will happen (some perpetrated by men), and that government is little more than a band-aid on a broken bone. That does not mean that government can do nothing to quell the violence, but that it is limited, fallible, and powers delegated must be balanced against the known capacity of government itself to be the greatest of all earthly tyrants.

There is another worldview, wholly different from ours above, that says that mankind itself is on the verge of immanentizing the eschaton – to bring about the end of history and begin a new epoch – and introducing a new, manmade Eden on earth. In this Eden, all will not only be equal, but precisely the same in all things, and no violence will be necessary any longer.

This is the hypothetical Eden of Progressivism. It is the same hypothetical Eden as in Communism, which bills itself aptly as “the ruthless criticism of all that exists.” This ideology is in rebellion against all of creation and casts itself as the eventual savior of mankind – literally substituting itself for Christ on the cross.

It misunderstands man’s place in this universe and casts him as creator instead of a fallen creature. It misunderstands government’s place as one of forcing the evolution of society to perfection – either through vanguardism, proletariat dictatorship, or a bureaucracy of experts – instead of as an imperfect institution for upholding natural law.

It is in this vein that those now claiming the moral high ground while standing on tiny graves, accuse their opposition of moral crimes against humanity, and of standing in the way of this new, impossible Eden. They hold their opposition directly and uniquely responsible for original sin, and the fall of man. In this manner, they are exposed as the absolute lowest of snake oil salesmen and liars. They promise what they cannot deliver. They come declaring Heaven when Hell follows.

An Open Letter to the IREHR (Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights)

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 12:00 +0000

Dear Sirs,

It has been brought to my attention that your organization recently published a study finding that 875 state legislators representing all 50 states are members of far-right groups on Facebook. This is shocking. Really, truly, shocking. I applaud your efforts to expose these kinds of harmful opinions, and I strongly encourage you to continue with this extremely important work.

My home state of New Hampshire apparently holds the top spot in your survey, with 62 legislators making it onto the naughty list. We actually have the single largest state legislature in the country, at nearly three times the national average. That presumably gives New Hampshire a bit of mathematical advantage in this contest.

In the interest of fairness, I did a quick back-of-the-napkin analysis (recycled, of course!) and found that among the states on your short list, New Hampshire actually rates pretty close to the bottom, percentage-wise. Arkansas takes the top slot, with over 25% of legislators being members of far-right groups!!! Gadzooks! (But then again, it’s Arkansas, right??? You know what I mean.) Montana is next at 22%, followed by Washington, Minnesota, Missouri, Maine, Pennsylvania, and then New Hampshire.

If I got my math right, New Hampshire is in eighth place!!! Eighth!!!! Egads, that’s just awful. We really don’t take kindly to being ranked eighth in anything. As you probably know, New Hampshire is the home of the “first in the nation primary”. The Cato Institute (a filthy far-right group itself, of course) recently ranked us first in economic freedom, and US News & World Report (probably a far-right group as well) rates us as the fourth best state in the country. (They are wrong about that. Obviously. We are so better than that. Also first. Of course.)

We need to do better, though, and you have my word as a proud Granite State activist , we will fight the good fight. By my calculations, if we can add another 42 right-wing extremist loons to our roster, we should be able to lock up a tie with Arkansas (assuming they hold steady, of course). With 43 wins, New Hampshire could potentially even take the top slot both in percentages and raw numbers. We could be the king of the gun-toting, anti-science, hate-mongering, anti-abortion, covid-denying, voter suppressing mountain.

Onward, brave soldiers!  I’m getting chills just thinking about it.

On a related, note, I should thank you for including me personally in your list of right-wing crazies. (I’m one of the 62 NH legislators in your report.) When I first scanned that list, I panicked… For a brief, terrifying moment I actually thought that I hadn’t made the cut. Truth be told, I nearly spilled my organic fair-trade coffee all over my gluten-free avocado toast. What a sigh of relief when I finally found my name! I’ll be running for office again this fall, so hopefully I can be part of that legislative class that cements New Hampshire’s top position in the IREHR rankings.

I would, however, like to voice one itty-bitty little complaint (if I may be so bold). My organization (“the 603 Alliance”) apparently isn’t sufficiently right-wing to have qualified for your list. That’s disappointing. Really disappointing. Like, slap-in-the-face disappointing. Think about the way you feel when someone says something really offensive like “you’re so articulate”, or when you see a person wearing a culturally appropriated Halloween costume. Yes, that disappointing.

The 603 Alliance deserves to be on your list of far-right groups. We believe in limited government, low taxes, and personal freedoms. That should be all the 411 you need on 603, but just in case you’re not convinced yet, there’s more: We believe that people should be allowed to own guns. And carry them. And even shoot them on occasion. We’re in favor of school choice. Just last week, we voiced our support for a bill asserting that parents have the right to raise their own children! Just let that sink in. Wow. Dude. Wow. We have hosted events featuring some real nut-job speakers like Mike Lindell, James O’Keefe, and Steve Bannon. Dude!!!!!!! Steve Freakin’ Bannon. How in God’s name does that not qualify us as a far-right extremist group???

As if that weren’t enough, I even began this letter with a gendered greeting. Gendered!!!! And a bit further down, I referenced the “king” of the mountain. Hashtag #toxicmasculinity. Seriously.

I humbly and respectfully request that IREHR reconsider the omission of the 603 Alliance from your far-right extremist report. Like, really really really hoping this was just an oversight on your part. Hashtag #JusticeFor603. Peace out.

Respectfully yours,

Jim Kofalt

Steve identified the Reps calling themselves Republicans, who voted to allow public schools to groom children in secret.

Conservatives, real Republicans, America-Firsters, etc. are justifiably outraged at these Sununu-sycophant-faux-Republicans. But they should be equally outraged at the House GOP Leadership because there will be NO CONSEQUENCES.

Enter Salvador Ramos, a Troubled Young 18-Year-Old.

Granite Grok - Sun, 2022-05-29 00:00 +0000

This is a follow-up to multiple reports and discussions surrounding the Uvalde shooting on May 24, 2022. There is much public discussion in the United States about this incident and consternation.

The event has enflamed debates on gun laws and incited political divisions in the run-up to the midterms. Let’s consider several important aspects of this tragic event that should not be overlooked. Specifically, we should pay attention to the potential for black hand interference.

The timing geopolitically is crucial. Last weekend, the WEF began its annual meeting in Davos. One of the key takeaways from the meetings was Henry Kissinger’s comments on the war in Ukraine. The elder American statesman noted that the best resolution would be for Ukraine to cede territory to Russia and declare neutrality. This effectively would involve realizing the sovereignty of the people of the Donbas region and recognizing their right to self-determination, which has been publicly announced to be accession into the Russian Federation.

The syndicated global media’s narratives surrounding Ukraine have characterized it as a beleaguered, innocent country and encouraged fanatical support from audiences in the US and EU. Kyiv has been portrayed as an ally in need of help, bullied by a bellicose Moscow. This is not entirely the reality, as it ignores NATO’s role in sabotaging regional stability and development, as well as the weaponization of Ukraine against Russia. These media narratives have completely collapsed, and Kissinger’s comments risked completely exposing their fraudulence.

A new distraction was called for. Enter Salvador Ramos, a troubled young 18-year-old. Where did Ramos get USD$6000 to buy weapons and gear for this attack? Most likely he either stole it or earned it in gang-related activity involving smuggling humans and drugs over the US-Mexico border. His mother said that he had reasons for what he did. Those reasons are irrelevant in the context of the shooting.

Let’s take a minute to understand black hand interference. This is a term covering a range of techniques and tactics used maliciously to create a destructive and devastating event in such a way that the real instigator is able to avoid notice and attention. It is typically malicious in nature. A black hand operation typically takes several years or months to plan and involves feeding information to specific individuals, then outfitting them with equipment and reaction patterns so that when they are put into a specific situation, the outcome is destructive and usually deadly.

Reports indicate that a teacher at Robb Elementary had propped open the door on the side of the building closest to where Ramos had crashed his truck on arriving. That was a breach of school policy, but it is common for teachers to step outside briefly during the school day for a breath of fresh air. What is important to point out is the timing.

This is where orchestrated signals intelligence comes into play. The timing of these events indicates that there may have been black hand interference. First, why did the school’s security guard fail to identify the shooter heading toward the building? He did not hear the gunshots and did not engage the threat. There may have been communications interference involved that prevented him from reacting appropriately.

Secondly, why did the teacher who propped the door open leave the door open? Electronic warfare techniques can be effective in capturing and controlling an individual’s attention in order to achieve a specific objective. In this case, the teacher was distracted and pressured enough to fail to close the door. A simultaneous barrage of electronic signals combined with the sound of gunshots outside may have such an effect.

Finally, Ramos himself was somehow instigated into committing this act. What caused him to have these ideas? The set of actions and the planning necessary to conduct such an attack requires a certain degree of planning. It is not an off-the-cuff event. For an individual to do this, they must be fed information. Specifically, they must be fed ideas and encouraged to buy the necessary weapons and gear.

Uvalde’s mayor has made public comments that the town suffers upwards of 15 police chases a week due to illegal immigrants. Was Ramos involved in illegal human trafficking activity? Quite possibly. Was he targetted via the internet, fed specific information to pressure him into doing what he did? Extremely likely.

Who was the black hand? By the nature of such a conspiracy, it is difficult to be sure. It may not have been instigated by Americans. It could have been conducted by Russian, Chinese, Israeli, or British government/military units. Or it could have been another organization altogether.

How to defend against such an attack? We must be vigilant. Individuals must be very aware of what information they are consuming on a day-to-day basis, and what positions they are putting themselves in. We must be on guard when we are in our places of work and have precautionary safety measures practiced in the case of such violent attacks.

We must also be compassionate to our fellow citizens. It is the government’s duty to care for the people. The local, county and state governments must be able to account for citizens and help to support their well-being. There is no excuse for individuals who have written on the internet publicly that they want to commit violent crimes. That is a massive red flag. If there are algorithms in place to censor certain comments about COVID, there should be algorithms in place to identify potential violent criminals. These should directly flag authorities, who should act to contact the flagged individuals and help them, support them, provide care for them, and assist them to improve their lives.

Then again, it may have just been a perfectly natural occurrence. A product of American society in the 21st century.

These Seven NH Republicans “Took a Walk” Rather Than Support the Parental Rights Bill (That Failed by 7 Votes)

New Hampshire’s parental bill of rights, HB1431, didn’t have to fail. Yes, there were 15 Republicans who voted to kill it. There’s no excuse, but there are also those Republicans who were not excused and did not vote at all.

Twenty-Two Republicans in the NH House did not cast a vote on HB1431. Of those, thirteen were absent for legitimate reasons. The Speaker is listed as presiding (not voting), but seven other Republicans were present and refused to cast a vote.

The bill failed by seven votes.

In the event of a tie, the Speaker can then cast the tie-breaking vote which would have been to reconsider and pass the legislation. Given that leadership advanced the bill, passage would have likely been assured.

This does not absolve the fifteen republicans who voted no of any blame. They stabbed parents in the back. But this list of cowards deserves special attention. And yes, they could have voted no, and then they’d be on the previous list.

By refusing to support or oppose parents rights get their own list.

So here they are.

No Federal Lunch Money If Your School Doesn’t Transgederize Girl’s Safe Spaces

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-05-28 21:00 +0000

The Bidenistas have decided. If you refuse to allow boys into girls’ bathrooms or locker rooms, then no federal lunch money to feed poor kids. So, is this another one of those “choices” my body things, like – you will take the experimental pharmaceutical or else?

Maybe require them to put that in the lunch and almost literally kill two little birds with one Federal stone. We’re not there yet, and it sounds far-fetched, but then so does this.

 

 

Under this new demand, establishments that accept any federal food funding, including food stamps, must also allow males who claim to be female to access female private spaces, such as showers, bathrooms, and sleeping areas. Such organizations must also follow protocols such as requiring staff to use inaccurate pronouns to describe transgender people and allowing male staff to dress as women while on the job.

 

So, it’s not just schools. Will this include battered women’s shelters, prisons, homeless shelters, and halfway houses?

 

Religious institutions, however, qualify for a waiver exempting them from these requirements, said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Greg Baylor in an interview Monday. According to the 1972 Title IX law, he said, religious institutions don’t have to file any paperwork to be exempt, although they can if they wish.

 

That’s unexpected, but will it survive?

The rule-making gets pounded out this summer. Who and how to punish. Regulatory oversight. Expansion of the bureaucratic state. Funding – you always need more funding.

All to allow the misogynistic racist offspring of so-called white supremacist bigots access to girls in vulnerable places. Women and children will be hit hardest. Predators will take advantage.

Two words. Bag lunch. Three more words. Fund it locally if it needs funding at all. I know, such harsh language. What government entity wants to give up “free money.” How dare you suggest it, but we suggest it all the time.

Federal funds, federal strings, it’s a big deal, and in New Hampshire, the Feds have us in a noose thanks to governors and legislatures past, present, and (no doubt) future.

Live Free or Die is a mirage. New Hampshire is little more than another gold-digging DC trophy wife, and our so-called “leaders” work diligently to keep it that way.

And now we must comply with 100% trans-parency, or someone might go hungry, not that they should. Feeding kids who can’t afford a school lunch should be a local matter, but I bet NH Gov. Chris Sununu will love it. He’s Mr. local control when it suits him. and this is as anti-local control as you can get. And Governor Groomer is all in on transgender bathrooms, so just like a Democrat, he’ll be giddy.

It’s exciting when someone else takes the heat off you for policies you support—no political price to pay. You can pretend there’s nothing you can do even when you can.

States have rights, but Sununu is unlikely to complain because he has increasingly become just another authoritarian…tick.

Let’s see if I’m right.

Blogline of the Day – She said the quiet part out loud (e.g., Parents, back off!)

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-05-28 19:30 +0000

This isn’t the quiet part yet, but sets the stage:

“Meg Tuttle, president of the NEA-NH, the state’s largest teacher’s union, said it is dangerous to let parents get between teachers and students when it comes to talking about sex.”

Got that?

Parents are dangerous, only teachers are kind and nurturing.  ONLY teachers, with a Government mindset on sexual mores, should be the only ones to be talking to YOUR children about the physical and emotion intimacy of sexual relations.  Thanks for letting us know that being a School Groomer is GREAT, Meg!

And that our children really aren’t ours.  What’s your next step – having school boards build dorms to have them all the time (and adding more dues paying employees to “care” for them)?

 “HB 1431 disregards these well-tended relationships, substituting them with rules that make our schools and classrooms less safe for every student, risk their mental and physical health and well-being, and undermine the state’s obligation to provide an adequate and inclusive education for all students. Today, for the sake of a radical political agenda, the committee put the lives of children at risk,” Tuttle said.

And the quiet part that recognizes what the aims of Teachers and Teacher Unions really is – and it isn’t being in the tradition role of teachers with the 3 R’s:

Tuttle has previously said teachers in the classroom should be activists, especially when it comes to teaching subjects like sexual identity.

Is this what we are paying them for?  To be “activists”? Indoctrinators?  And the kids “graduate” after 12 years being non-proficient in the subject areas that we expect them to be excellent in?  Not able to read to grade level, can’t do multiplication in their heads and can’t solve a simple quadratic equation, have no idea of our real history (but that made up white guilt inducing 1619 “everyone white is a slaver under their skin”, they’re BOFFO, and have no idea of simple civics?

And you wonder why approval ratings are approaching that of CongressTwits and homeschooling and charter schools are starting to clean your clocks.

So when teachers screw up the kids, like that 12 year old girl in Clay County, Florida that tried to commit suicide after her school “counselor” convinced her that she was transgender TWICE before the school notified her Parents because of their Christian faith, are YOU TWO BOZOS going to take responsibility (especially financially?) for what you have done?

And now, TWO, for the price of one!  NH State Senator David Watters is of the same ilk.

NH State Senaor David Watters Union Leader

 

Opponents of the bill, like Sen. David Watters, D-Dover, suggested that children should be able to explore their sexuality with a trusted teacher, without telling their parents.

 

Yet another Government Groomer.  What is WRONG with you, Watters????   I have no idea but thanks for letting us know, as a “trusted” member of the Democrat Party, that Parents don’t matter.  That they shouldn’t be in charge of their kids, that you believe they don’t care about their kids.

NO, NO, NO – teachers should NEVER be inserting themselves into the middle of the Parent-child relationship in this kind of aspect of Life.  How DARE you intrude into this area without permission.  Look at all the stuff that a school must obtain permission from parents in order to do, and you two believe that one of the most important parts of these kids future lives MUST be foisted upon them too early just to be “activists” and take that precious moment and training away from Parents??

No, you’re not teachers, you’re not “activists” – you are MONSTERS, you are Groomers – you’re sexual predators.  And I have posted up enough example to easily say “I have receipts”.

No, because Democrats never say they’re sorry and they never take responsibility for their policies that cause harm.

They’ll just keep saying “Oh, this is the parents’ responsibility” and demand that the parents now take care of the mess that they just created.

Just like Governor Groomer Chris Sununu and his band of Establishment Republicans that decided to be Democrats for the day when they voted against HB1431 (Parental Bill of Rights).

You’re no better.

Anti-Parents, all of you.

In the 2022 Midterm Election Trial, America Has to Kick the Kangaroo Out of Court

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-05-28 18:00 +0000

The trial lawyer knows his client, Michael Sussmann, is guilty as sin.

The evidence is overwhelming Sussmann lied to the FBI, but the barrister has been very careful to not ask his client if he did it. If the client ever confessed to his trial lawyer; the lawyer would have to inform the court, and that just couldn’t be allowed to happen. The trial lawyer knows the system and there are still ways to get his guilty client off. He looked for technicalities, and errors on the prosecution side but there were none to be found. The trial lawyer is lucky President Obama appointed the judge assigned to the case, and the judge’s wife is associated with Hillary Clinton. He will be biased and true to form many pretrial motions that have already gone in the trial lawyer’s favor. The Washington DC jury pool heavily favors progressive Democrats. They voted for Hillary Clinton 95 to 5. The Barack Obama judge allows three probably biased individuals to be seated on the jury. Sussman’s lawyer knows he has life where there should be none. As the old lawyer saying goes; “if you have the facts on your side, pound the facts; if you have the law on your side, pound the law; if you have neither the facts nor the law on your side pound the table”. Sussman’s lawyer knows his client is guilty but has the most favorable jury possible, a sympathetic judge and he is going to pound as hard as he can. All it will take is one member of the biased Washington DC jury to turn its back on the evidence and Sussmann walks.

We want to thank Jim Betti for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE

The mood at the meeting of the Democratic power brokers was dreary.

They could not understand how things could have gone so wrong. How their progressive ideas had turned into a national catastrophe. Inflation was ravaging people’s savings, the stock market was crashing, and the southern border was a catastrophe with thousands of illegal immigrants along with human trafficking and American youth killing fentanyl crossing daily. Joe Biden’s cognitive dysfunction resulted in a hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan leaving Americans and American assets behind. Never before had America abandoned its own. Ukraine was on fire. George Floyd’s murder had allowed the progressives to solidify the black vote but the repercussions of the massive violent protests had been devastating. Inner cities were no longer safe and in progressive cities black on black crime/murders were epidemic.  President Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain had been quoted as saying “the boss sometimes gets things mixed up in his head”. Everyone knew the extent of the understatement and the reality Biden was in cognitive decline. VP Harris was a cackling embarrassment.

The midterms were looming and by all measures, the Democratic Party was going to be massacred.

Progressives had tried to blame all of America’s problems on President Putin and it didn’t work. Blaming greedy oil companies for increased gas prices also flopped. They had tried to promote the “wins” of naming a black Supreme Court Judge, a cabinet full of equity appointments, and even a black gay press secretary. The public didn’t notice. Biden’s 1.9 trillion-dollar COVID give-away relief bill and trillion-dollar infrastructure bill along with his war on fossil fuels had backfired and ignited inflation. Six months of expensive consultant-driven focus groups which lead to labeling conservative Americans MAGA supporters failed miserably. Turns out most Americans want a great country.

The American public was angry and appropriately not impressed. The progressives and the media Titians had lied to them, and their chance to show their displeasure was rapidly approaching.

There was only one thing to do.

The unscrupulous trial lawyers were loyal progressives and the techniques used in the ongoing Michael Sussman trial showed the way. Unlinked from the Justice System there was no limit to how low the progressive trial lawyer tactics would go. It was time to pound the table, and there were no rules on how hard to pound or who was to be pounded.

The progressive Democratic Party was clearly guilty of mismanaging America and with the midterm elections approaching the far-left loons and the radical elites were about to go on trial.

The jury was the American people and they could not be allowed to clearly see the truth. Emotion must be made to rule the day because informed people would never vote for a continuation of the Biden administration catastrophe. The election judge, in this case, was supposed to be an unbiased media; but the progressives owned the judge{media} and there would be very little honest objective discussion of the issues. Progressives needed something to force antirepublican emotion on the people.

The leak of the probable overturning of Roe versus Wade was just what the doctor ordered.

Activating the feminist brain conditioning from years ago could be decisive. Perhaps a few violent riots, bra burning and hopefully the reemergence of vagina hats would help. The biased media will fan the fire as they portrayed nasty white Republican men taking over the bodies of helpless women.

Putting the icing on the cake a mentally deranged white man killed black people in Buffalo.

It couldn’t be better for the progressives. It did not matter the killer was clearly psychologically unstable. It didn’t matter thousands of blacks were being killed in progressive cities by other blacks. All Republicans were racist white supremacists and conservative media’s replacement therapy was their mantra.

The progressive Democratic power brokers took heart.

The American voter had been fooled before and using these trial lawyer techniques, it could happen again. They had gotten Bernie Sanders out of the Presidential race and were able to get a cognitively impaired Joe Biden elected President. The General public had bought the media’s lies about Russian collusion and Hunter Biden’s laptop. The 50 intelligent agents who said the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation was the best scam ever. The Internet Judges, Google, Facebook and Twitter had suppressed not only the Hunter Biden story but systematically suppressed conservative speech. It would be hard, but it could be done again.

All across America progressive lawmakers are returning to their districts and States with nothing to offer.

They have no wins, but they really believe the American people are so foolish they can be blinded to what they’ve seen with their own eyes {CRT/groomers in their schools, empty store shelves, crippling energy/gas prices} and swayed by emotion. After all, the election court has been stacked with corrupt Judges {media/Tech Titans} determined to push their progressive agenda.

The progressive candidates will plead their case and be allowed to break every rule. Any small mistake from the Republican candidate will be blown out of proportion. Republicans will be called racists, misogynist, climate change deniers and much worse. Conservative social media accounts will be shut down and progressive vitriol will be all over Twitter and Facebook. Google will do its best to make sure conservative fundraising’s emails end up as spam.

And despite all the corruption and a biased election justice system; 

Americans must overcome the progressive Kangaroo election court and pronounce sentence on the guilty progressives by doing one thing.

Voting!!!

2022 is here and 2024 is around the corner!!!

 

Both General Michael Flynn and Attorney Michael Sussman were accused of lying to the FBI.

General Flynn was set up by a corrupt FBI/DOJ, had his family threatened with imprisonment, a judge who was so bad he wanted a trial even though the DOJ withdrew its case, and Gen. Flynn had to be pardoned by the President to escape a politically contrived conviction. Several other Trump officials endured FBI Swat Team raids [one was conveniently filmed by CNN} and despite being no threat, themselves and their family were intimidated at gun point. Once again Presidential pardons were required to prevent political imprisonment.

Clinton operative Attorney Michael Sussman was treated with kid gloves, a sympathetic Obama Judge and given a defense lawyer dream jury. Even if convicted most likely the Obama Judge will go light on Sussman’s sentence. Sussman’s family is resting in the comfort of their home with no fear of a FBI Swat Team or imprisonment.

Readers are encouraged to come to their own conclusion which political party is best fit to run America.

Rainbow D!ld* Butt Monkey

Granite Grok - Sat, 2022-05-28 18:00 +0000

Old story, but new to us and indicative of the culture with which we find ourselves wrestling. A tale from the people’s Republik of Wokeistan and one of its purveyors of the progressive pestilence, the public libraries.

Libraries.

There was a time not long ago when people predicted that brick and mortar libraries were vestigial structures not long for the modern age. But much like the paperless office or sea-level rise, the prognosticators got it wrong, though libraries have tried to commit suicide repeatedly in recent years.

They have become warehouses for all manner of perversion, from inappropriate books for kids, tweens, and teens to cross-dressing displays and drag-queen story hours that normalize sexualizing children.

Over in Britain, this phenomenon reached new levels of stupid last year.

 

Redbridge Libraries hired Mandinga Arts to provide entertainers for their Summer Reading Challenge event on July 10 when video footage from the day went viral.

One of the entertainers – who was described as, you guessed it, a “rainbow dildo butt monkey” on Twitter — was dressed, well, exactly how you’d expect a rainbow dildo butt monkey to look: A person in a multi-coloured monkey costume with nipples exposed along with a fake penis and butt cheeks hanging out.

 

The library apologized, which is surprising, but that did not manage to protect them from well-deserved scrutiny.

 

Writer Janice Turner tweeted, “I would really love a detailed breakdown of the commissioning process whereby Redbridge council commissioned the Rainbow Dildo Butt Monkey as a means to teach children to read.”

 

We all know that Rainbow D!ld* Butt Monkey’s role is not to teach children to read. It exposes them to an adult lifestyle choice wholly inappropriate for all “butt,” a few, and none of them children.

“Butt” the culture has poisoned its watering hole. People in the system who might want to prevent that mistake or question the relevance or appropriateness are so terrified of appearing intolerant that they let what should seem unlikely, if not impossible, proceed.

Like the library that approved the “entertainment.”

This new normal continues the slide down the not just rhetorical but very real slippery slope. Sexualizing children at an early age coincided with life-long mental and physical health issues long before the gender spectrum began to expose itself. It is why objects of this cult are more likely to attempt suicide and succeed even in communities deemed tolerant and welcoming.

You are messing with people’s mental wiring and, in some instances altering their bodies chemically and physically before they can consciously consider the ramifications. And that’s the crux of the debate. Very few people care what an adult does to themself these days (with a few exceptions). They are assumed to have thought it out and made a choice.

The problem is adults turning government schools into Gender-Transition Black sites with ideological waterboarding. And politicians and activists are pretending this isn’t harmful to kids. But it is dangerous. An agenda driver re-education camp that occasionally spills over into the general public’s view.

 

Mandinga Arts Group, the company hired by the library that provided the characters, also apologized on their website, stating that while the monkey was previously well-received at carnival events, “it was entirely unsuitable for a children’s event and should never have been used.”

 

That’s not the only thing that’s unsuitable, but that doesn’t stop the library or the culture from fostering environments that will inevitably result in four out of ten of these kids trying to end their lives before they are old enough to be called adults.

If that’s the role libraries want to play in the 21st century, perhaps it’s time to defund these institutions and let them wither away, and I don’t say that lightly. I love books and learning, but terrorists have hijacked that vehicle, and we should not negotiate with terrorists.
