    Freaking Out Over Italy

    Who is the far-right Italian leader Giorgia Meloni? Brad Dress 09/27/22 Italy’s far-right Brothers of Italy party swept to victory in elections this week and is prepared to form the most conservative government in the nation since World War II. (right off the bat brad gets it WRONG!) The head of that party, and now Italy’s incoming prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, has pushed for a new direction in her country centered on Italian, Christian and family values. (OH The Horror!) (Snip) Fears of an ultraconservative Italian government under Meloni’s rule rippled across the Western world, with European leaders watching the new government with discomfort and vigilance. (And the downside of this is....?) ________________________________ You may notice some Commentary by your humble Poster

  5. Sep 27, 2022 The giant public-sector albatross of the National Education Association (NEA) has created for its members QR-code-loaded lanyards and badges that underage students and other teachers can scan to be linked – without parental approval – to an NEA website celebrating LGBTQ agendas, gay sex, and various forms of sodomy and subversive, perverse sexual activities.
  6. CBO: Student loan cancellation will cost more than $400 billion "The Biden Administration’s failure to release their own cost estimate should have been a red flag," one expert said. Casey Harper September 27, 2022 (The Center Square) — The Congressional Budget Office released an official cost estimate for President Joe Biden’s student loan cancellation, putting the cost at more than $400 billion. “As of June 30, 2022, 43 million borrowers held $1.6 trillion in federal student loans,” the group said. “About $430 billion of that debt will be canceled, CBO estimates.” Other policy groups have estimated the cost of Biden’s student loan cancellation in the same ballpark. “CBO’s new estimate confirms the outrageous cost of the White House plan to cancel large amounts of student debt, by executive order, to nearly all borrowers almost regardless of need,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget “The debt cancellation and pause alone will cost $420 billion — a bit more than we previously thought — and costs could reach $510 to $610 billion with their IDR changes. The Biden Administration’s failure to release their own cost estimate should have been a red flag.” (Snip)

    This was done in many Organized Crime cases. In some case the deal made was that the person did not have to testify in court.

  15. Facebook ‘silencing’ activity related to FBI whistleblower Steve Friend More evidence of how vindictive, obsessive and downright sinister Facebook is: Now it appears to be monitoring private messages and suppressing material related to the whistleblower complaint of heroic FBI special agent Steve Friend. After Friend’s bombshell revelations last week in a whistleblower complaint to the Department of Justice inspector general, his cause received an avalanche of public and private support, including from former FBI agents and conservative groups. :snip:
  16. Real Clear Policy Earlier this month, President Joe Biden showed up at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to announce spending $900 million to build about 500,000 charging stations across dozens of states, CBS News reported. The first tranche of $900 million — out of $5 billion in infrastructure money over five years — will be used to build electric vehicle chargers in 35 states. The chargers will be found across 53,000 miles of highway with the goal of promoting electric vehicle use. "The great American road trip is going to be fully electrified,” Bident said to a crowd of autoworkers and supporters. “Whether you're driving coast to coast along I-10, or on I-75 here in Michigan, charging stations will be up and as easy to find as gas stations are now.” Carmakers have ramped up efforts to make more electric vehicles — in April, Ford started building electric pickup trucks at a new Michigan factory and said last September it would build the next generation of electric pickups at a plant in Tennessee, CBS News reported.
  17. Washington Examiner Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy, a long-standing Fox News program that aired at the same time as Wallace's, received 1.3 million viewers and 78,000 viewers aged 25 to 54. Over the weekend, Fox News was the most-watched cable news network, with 1.2 million total viewers and 116,000 viewers aged 25-54 in prime time. Wallace left Fox News in December 2021 after 18 years, stating that he was looking to try something new and expand his horizons. A new show hosted by former Fox News host and current CNN host Chris Wallace fell flat in its debut. Nielsen Media Research tracked ratings for Wallace's show, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, which debuted on CNN Sunday. The ratings show that there were 401,000 viewers, down 29% from the average, and 44,000 among those aged 25 to 54, down 64% from the average.
  18. Townhall Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy may well be the nicest man on the face of the Earth, but he's a horrible political leader. What's sad is he's the best the Republicans in the House of Representatives could come up with for a leader. It's not that there aren't people who'd be better (I can think of an easy half dozen); it's that no one else could get the votes. With that in mind, he's the guy leading Republicans into the midterm elections. God help us. History is on the side of Republicans. If they did nothing, they should sweep back into power just based on what happens to the party of the presidency in its first midterm. Add to that the fact that Joe Biden is wildly unpopular outside of newsrooms and faculty lounges, and you have the makings of a "Republican wave election." All Republicans have to do is not blow it. The problem is this: Republicans excel at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. :snip:

  21. Just the News A whistleblower lawyer representing an FBI agent suspended after raising concerns about the treatment of Jan. 6 suspects says the bureau is using its control of security clearances to silence and punish critics. Jason Foster, a former Senate investigator and head of the Empower Oversight whistleblower group, told Just the News on Monday his group is helping to represent Special Agent Stephen Friend, who last week made a whistleblower complaint to the Office of Special Counsel alleging he was suspended after raising concerns about treatment of Jan. 6 suspects, the use of SWAT teams and alleged manipulation of crime statistics. Foster said the bureau was able to sideline Friend last week by suspending his security clearance pending a review, essentially leaving the agent in limbo and unable to do his job. Foster was asked whether he knew of any wrongdoing that Friend committed that would warrant suspending his security clearance. "No, absolutely not," he answered. "This is a common tactic that we have seen with the FBI," Foster told the "Just the News, Not Noise" television show. "They're using it more and more, because they know that there's less oversight and less scrutiny of a security clearance decision because of the nature of it. It's harder to do oversight and have any kind of independent scrutiny. "So rather than just suspending the person on a claim that they didn't do their job, or that they engaged in some misconduct, they'll simply suspend their clearance, which means that they can't do the work that they would normally do, then they can take them off the payroll, take their badge and gun, sideline them, and then hope that, you know, they can just sort of grind them into compliance or get them to quit rather than continue to fight because they don't have any money.
  22. Deadly Democrats: The Crime Wave No One’s Talking About Violent crime continues to rise across the United States, and Democratic politicians are struggling to defend their anti-law enforcement policies that have in some cases resulted in preventable deaths. This alarming crime wave has coincided with a marked increase in the number of Democratic donors, operatives, and elected officials (and other left-wing maniacs) arrested and charged with violent crimes. Here are a few of the most notable Democratic Party officials and associates to be charged, prosecuted, or sentenced for violent crimes in 2022: Sean Caddle, a longtime Democratic consultant in New Jersey, pleaded guilty in January to hiring two people to murder a former associate, Michael Galdieri, who was found stabbed to death in his apartment in May 2014. Caddle, a former aide to Democratic state senator Ray Lesniak, operated a network of shady super PACs that poured money into local races throughout New Jersey. He was also implicated in an ACORN-linked voter fraud scandal in Texas. Caddle was scheduled to be sentenced in June, but that hearing was postponed until December amid reports that the Democratic operative was cooperating with federal authorities.
  23. Front Page Magazine “Biden boasted about breaking records for online political fundraising… it’s ACLU supporters who are powering his election.” In 2016, the ACLU reported total net assets of 274 million dollars. In its 2021 statement, those assets had shot up to 748 million. What was the secret of the ACLU’s financial strategy? Like so many others had over the decades, it had invested in Trump. The 2016 numbers reflect the former civil rights organization before Trump while the latter are the powerhouse numbers after the former president. In 2016, member contributions amounted to a respectable 24 million. By the 2021 report, they totaled over 138 million. Of those 21 million came from new contributors alone. The ACLU post-Trump was making almost as much in revenue from new numbers as the pre-Trump ACLU was earning from all of its members. Fortune Magazine reported that, “ACLU membership grew from 400,000 to 1.84 million in the 15 months following President Donald Trump’s election” and while “the group’s online donations used to run between $3 to $5 million annually, but in the year after Trump took office, it raised $120 million online.” Before the last presidential election, the ACLU, which claims to be non-partisan, put out a press release boasting that “ACLU supporters’ contributions represent between 20 and 30 percent of all Democratic fundraising”.
