Mike Lindell speaks to Steve Bannon in a tinfoil hat 

 

Raw Story - Mike Lindell claims he has been vindicated 

 

20 Nov 2023

 


Pillow magnate Mike Lindell said that he had been vindicated after a Georgia ruling noted that the plaintiffs concerned about election security weren't conspiracy theorists and the trial could move forward. 

 

At issue was an opinion by a judge appointed by former President Barack Obama, who explained that there was reason to believe that there were security issues related to voting machines.

 

Part of her conclusion was based on the Coffee County incident in which Republicans got into the building holding the machines, broke into them, and stole data. ...

 

At no point does Mike Lindell's name appear anywhere in the court filing, nor does it say he was "vindicated."

What he didn't say but it's the truth:

 

"There are security issues related to voting machines, you see. And it's our side trying to exploit them."

The Georgia district attorney investigating Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia has evidence to charge multiple allies of the former president involved in breaching voting machines in the state.

The crew basically did a failed "pen test," penetration test. I guess Lindell doesn't know there's some steps before and after breaking into someone's office to steal an encrypted drives.

The most important "before" step is pre-engagement. In other words asking if you can break into the office before you do it. This will likely get everyone involved thrown into jail if skipped.

If I show up at home, and a burglar is stuffing my encrypted laptop into a sack in my living room, I'm not going to accept this excuse: "You should thank me for reconnaissance on your house and testing for security issues. Now I'll be going. You're welcome."

His crew also missed "after" steps of post exploitation and reporting. The villains have the encrypted drives, but it's a paperweight until they're decrypted.

The Hill: Greene calls for new Jan. 6 select committee

Representative. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Republican-Georgia) on Sunday called on Speaker Mike Johnson (Republican Louisiana) to create a new Jan. 6 select committee she said would target the original members of the panel and exonerate the so-called “MAGA” wing of the Republican Party from blame associated with the 2021 attack on the Capitol.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Greene outlined her vision for the committee. She said it must issue subpoenas to the original committee members, to former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and to the witnesses who testified.

Orban likes the type of elections that keep Putin in power? 

 

Orbán accused of trying to silence all critics in Hungary with new law
Proposed law to create ‘sovereignty protection office’ is designed to undermine opponents, civil society groups warn
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/nov/23/orban-accused-of-trying-to-silence-all-critics-in-hungary-with-new-law

""
The Hungarian Helsinki Committee, a rights group, said the bill was “intentionally vague and riddled with undefined and broadly interpreted concepts”.

 

“This deliberate ambiguity allows the new authority to arbitrarily consider any activity related to public affairs as serving foreign interests,” it said, adding that “this is a clear attempt to weaponise the law, create a chilling effect, and further consolidate political power”.

 

Hungary’s opposition also raised concerns. Katalin Cseh, a member of the European parliament from the opposition Momentum party, said the proposal is “another dark milestone for Hungary”.

Fox news went completely right-wing conspiracy nuts, and accused Joe Biden's immigration policy directly resulting in a terror attack, including making up facts around a bomb..

They then accused the left-wing press about spreading disinformation.

Only to discover it was a high speed car accident, no bomb, no terrorists.

Funny, there was nomea culpa, we over-reacted apology piece released.

Canada : Right-wing U.S. media covered fiction as fact: A non-existent terrorist attack from Canada at Rainbow Bridge

For a few hours Wednesday afternoon, Canada appeared to be staring down the barrel of an unwelcome and potentially painful international crisis.

News reports were awash in misinformation following an explosion at the Canada-U.S. border crossing at Rainbow Bridge near Niagara Falls.

Some U.S. media began describing it as a terrorist explosion, caused by a vehicle entering from Canada.

Every element of that preceding sentence was dispelled within hours as flat-out wrong.

There was no attack from Canada; the incident occurred entirely on U.S. soil; in fact, authorities don't believe it was a terrorist attack at all.

That didn't stop a candidate for president of the United States from appearing on Fox News to promote an aspect of his platform: Building a border wall with Canada.

"I have been sounding the alarm bell about the northern border for a long time," said Vivek Ramaswamy during a lengthy interview about an incident he did not witness, was not a subject-matter expert on, and had no insight into.

"This is a mounting crisis. We're ignoring it."
...
On Fox News, talking heads were talking about their porous borders, and also about Canada's allegedly porous immigration system.

"It is untenable to let millions of people into this country when we don't know who they are," said former State Department official Morgan Ortagus.

"Similarly, there have been people hawkish on immigration who have not been comfortable with Canada's vetting system."

One host on Fox News expressed astonishment that this had suddenly become the biggest story in the country, supplanting the hostage release in Gaza.

We know what happens next. This could only mean one thing. It's a conspiracy.

Time: Argentina Just Elected an Eccentric Populist Who Seeks Counsel From His Cloned Dogs

... [Argentinia next president Javier Milei] rallied against sex education in schools, pledged to curb abortion access, and rejected climate science as a socialist conspiracy.

But more than any of his policy proposals or platform details, Milei primarily came to be known throughout the turbulent election season as an eccentric. ... On the campaign trail, he wielded a chainsaw on stage and smashed a piñata on air to symbolize his plans. He has made bold remarks ranging from calling Pope Francis a “filthy leftist” to hailing American gangster Al Capone as a “hero.”

...His pet dogs were the first he thanked when he finished first in the country’s presidential primaries

“Who else?” he said. “My four-legged children,” referring to his five dogs, the oldest one called Conan, whom he has called “the best strategists.”

His first the pet dog Conan became, in Milei’s words, his “true and greatest love” and that Milei came to see Conan as “literally his son.” Milei, who is never-married and childless, has credited the 200-pound dog with being his closest friend and confidante and sticking by his side through difficult and lonely times.

When Conan died in 2017, Milei reportedly visited a medium to communicate with his late beloved pet. It was in that telepathic conversation, Milei has said, that Conan relayed God’s mission for him to become President of Argentina. According to Argentina’s La Nacion newspaper, Milei believes that he and Conan first met in a previous life more than 2,000 years ago as a gladiator and lion in the Roman Colosseum and that the pair did not fight because they were destined to join forces in the future (which he believes was a prophecy of his animal-influenced presidential campaign).

In 2018, Milei went on to pay about $50,000, according to Reuters and the New York Times, to U.S. company PerPETuate to clone Conan using his DNA, something Milei had reportedly been planning to do for some time. The procedure resulted in five puppies, whom Milei named after the original Conan and the economists Murray Rothbard, Milton Friedman, and Robert Lucas. Milei regularly refers to the current clone Conan as his son—and doesn’t distinguish him from the original Conan—and the other four dogs as his “grandchildren.”

González and other Argentine news outlets have reported that Milei seeks counsel from his dogs on matters of his campaign, policy, and more. In an August interview with Spanish newspaper 20minutos, González said that Milei “is convinced that the dogs advise him in different areas: one in politics, another in economics, another gives him general advice.”

I would wager that if he lets his dogs decide policy they won't do any worse than the politicians.

The Washington Post - Rep. George Santos says he expects to be kicked out of Congress as expulsion vote looms

 

27 Nov 2023

 


NEW YORK - Rep. George Santos said he expects to be expelled from Congress following a scathing report by the House Ethics Committee ...

 

While Santos has survived two expulsion votes, many of his colleagues who formerly opposed the effort now say they support it, citing the findings of the committee’s months-long investigation into a wide range of alleged misconduct by Santos.

 

 



 

PS  His decision not to seek reelection, Santos said, was not because of external pressure, but due to his frustration with the “sheer arrogance” of his colleagues.  😐

When your inflation goes well over 100% this is what happens, the middle ground is there but crowded out by populist Right and Left.
While academics don't like it, the authoritarian populist right and left are really just the same disasters.

From the ant-abortion President of Argentina. I suggest before moving to selling your organs, maybe trial legal prostitution first in this heavily Catholic nation? Just saying.

Rolling Stone: Tantric Sex and Dog Cloning: A Guide to Argentina’s Trumpy New President
...
Free-market-loving Milei has indicated his support for private sale of human organs.

In June of last year, Milei stated that he would legalize the sale of organs, which is currently illegal in Argentina: “If you have your daughter about to die, and you need to pay for a [medical] intervention. If someone wants to buy your kidney and you could sell it to them. The solution is very painful, you are giving up an organ and, if you also add state regulations, it is worse. I’m talking about social cooperation and voluntary exchanges. It’s the decision of individuals.”

“If liberalism is the unrestricted respect for the life of others, based on the principle of non-aggression and in defense of the right to life, freedom and property; and my first property is my body, then why shouldn’t I be able to do what I want with my body?” he said in another interview.

The comments generated controversy as Milei was essentially suggesting that an individual sell a kidney and undergo invasive surgery in order to afford a separate life-saving medical procedure for a loved one. Additionally, the black market trade of organs has frequently been associated with organized crime in many South American countries, and often results in the exploitation of poor individuals.

What Milei was willing to see on the free market once again generated controversy when he suggested that he might be open to the sale of children. In 2022, when asked if he would support the right to sell one’s kids, Milei responded “it depends.”

Raw Story - Speaker Mike Johnson wimps out on pushing George Santos expulsion 

 

29 Nov 2023

 


House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said Republican leadership would not urge members to vote for the expulsion of Rep. George Santos (R-NY). *

 

On Tuesday, two House Democrats introduced a resolution to force a vote to expel Santos after an ethics committee said he should be referred to the Department of Justice for alleged fraud. He is already facing indictment for conspiracy and other crimes. ...

 

The timing of a vote to oust Santos was not immediately apparent.

 

 

*  Johnson has described the vote to expel Santos as a 'vote of conscience'.  Expulsion from the House requires a two-thirds vote by members.

 

EDIT : Update

 

House Republican leaders have delayed the actual vote on Santos’s expulsion until Friday, citing a pileup of legislative business. 

The delay means that the vote will take place as lawmakers leave town for the weekend, allowing them to minimize questions from reporters.
