13 RINOs Help Biden/Pelosi Pass Radical Infrastructure Bill

The House just passed a giant $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. It had previously passed the Senate and will now head to Biden.

In this bill Dems are trying to ram through: - Mass amnesty - 87,000 new IRS agents - Insane leftist mandates - Giveaways to union bosses - Natural gas tax that'll raise energy costs It's a socialist takeover of America. No wonder they're doing it in the dark of night.



“Majority Makers” just became Socialism Makers. 
There is only one cure. Remove them from committees. 
Stop helping them financially. 
They don’t deserve it and solidly proved it by delivering Biden’s agenda. 
Primary them & build a better party that serves America.

FBI Raids Project Veritas to Seize Ashley Biden’s Diary – Here is the Ugly Story Many Believe Is In It  by Kyle Becker about 2 hours ago

The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday undertook a politically motivated raid against Project Veritas, an undercover reporting agency led by James O’Keefe that has displayed a remarkable knack for exposing corrupt Democrats.


The FBI carried out search warrants at two locations – one in New York City and one in suburban Westchester County – to track down and obtain the stolen diary of Joe Biden’s lesser-known child Ashley Biden from Project Veritas’s associates.

It is critical to note that the New York Times’ reportage on the development materially substantiates that the diary seized by the FBI traces back to a bombshell report prior to the 2020 election:

The Justice Department searched two locations associated with the conservative group Project Veritas as part of an investigation into how a diary stolen from President Biden’s daughter, Ashley, came to be publicly disclosed a week and a half before the 2020 presidential election, according to people briefed on the matter.

The FBI’s extraordinary actions betray that there must assuredly be extremely sensitive revelations contained within the Ashley Biden diary. Theft of personal property is almost always a matter for local law enforcement. The Feds violating the freedom of the press to seize stolen property that is primarily a matter of personal interest is nearly unprecedented.

The reports about what is allegedly in the diary were disclosed originally by the National File’s Patrick Howley and cast an ugly picture about the life of Joe Biden’s daughter growing up.

“According to our source, the diary also details Ashley Biden’s unhealthy relationship with sex, and the ‘probably not appropriate’ showers she shared as a young girl with her father, Joe Biden,” the National File reported.

“After declaring she was ‘here for sexual trauma’ in the previous entry, on page 23 of the diary, dated January 30, 2019, the author explores the topic of sexual abuse and how it may have led to her overactive sex drive,” the report noted.

“I’ve had one of my hardest days – my sex drive is out of f**king control. Like literally, I am in heat,” the author wrote.


“I know it’s not the healthiest way to deal with things but @ least it’s better than drugs,” she added in a 1/30/19 entry, along with confessing she needed “sex to feel good.”

She then stated her belief that she was “molested.”

“Was I molested. I think so – I can’t remember specifics but I do remember trauma,” wrote the author. There appears to be a potential allusion to Ashley Biden’s cousin Caroline Biden, which the author says she remembers “being somewhat sexualized” along with “Caroline.”
































     Here, the author says that she was, “Hyper-sexualized [at] a young age,” which preceded her stated belief that she had been “molested,” albeit without recalling specifics. However, she goes on to also state her reaction to ‘overhearing her parents having sex,” as well.

In at least two entries, the National File noted, the author identifies herself specifically as “Ashley Blazer Biden.”

The National File claims that the FBI raid authenticates the diary, although this has not been confirmed. Its original report can be read here in full.

The critical thing about the FBI seizing the diary allegedly belong to Ashley Biden is that the victimization fits a “fact pattern” of behavior that has been attributed to Joe Biden.

There are numerous cases of Biden groping and fondling young boys and girls on video. One notorious example was an incident at a Senate swearing-in ceremony in 2015.

This was the same ceremony where he fondled a girl on camera, who later accused him of pinching her nipples. Maria Piacesi was eight when she was with her Uncle Senator Steve Daines and met Biden. In the video, she is clearly groped. You can watch the incident below.

Joe Biden squeezing the nipple of an 8 year old  Jul 24, 2021


This video clip is taken directly from C-SPAN’s archive. To find the C-SPAN video in its ENTIRETY, go to c-span’s site and search for: Senate Ceremonial Swearing-In 1/6/2015 and go to timestamp 1 hour 21 minutes. I have included a clipped version directly from C-SPAN’s website here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c486094... This was during the ceremonial swearing of the 114th congress. The US vice president, serving as the president of the US Senate, engages in a fun, light-hearted swearing-in ceremony with elected senators and their families where they take pictures to commemorate the event. The young girl, Maria Piacesi, is the niece of Montana’s US Senator Steve Daines. She was 8 years old at the time of this video in 2015. In 2021, now 14 years old, she confirmed in her Tik Tok that she was sexually assaulted by Joe Biden. He pinched her nipple, and you can see her brush him off. She does not want to come forward because she doesn’t think anything will come of it and she thinks her friends would hate her for it. Just as an education exercise - let's just imagine what the headlines would be if this were a republican politician...


“Did Joe Biden pinch you?” A user by the name of Jonathan Pasetti asked, to which Piacesi responded, “Yes.” However, she later deleted her comment.

“Why did you delete the comment?” Pasetti asked.

“I have friends that would no longer be friends with me if they knew that,” Maria Piacesi replied.

The question is thus raised whether Ashley Biden’s diary contains material evidence substantiating that Joe Biden had molested children. The FBI’s raid appears to be motivated by the aim to bury evidence, instead of exposing possible wrongdoing. It is no longer just the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but the Federal Bureau of Halting Investigation.

Similar to her older brother Hunter Biden, Ashley Biden has long been known to have struggled with drug problems. Hunter apparently committed a number of felony crimes, some of them revealed in his authenticated laptop. These crimes include drug usage, international racketeering schemes, soliciting prostitution, and firearms violations – all of which have been swept under the rug by the FBI, despite the serious risks to national security that could arise via foreign blackmail.

If the FBI is willing to bury evidence of crimes for Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, then what possible crimes are they hiding in the case of Ashley Biden?

China's 'Satellite Crusher': 'Space Pearl Harbor' Is Coming   by   


The satellite, according to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp., is "tasked with demonstrating technologies to alleviate and neutralize space debris."

As Beijing sees it, American satellites constitute "debris."

"[Communist China's satellite] is a real-world offensive capability that can hunt and destroy American systems and render the U.S. military on earth deaf, dumb, and blind." — Brandon Weichert, author of Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower, to Gatestone.

At one time, America was dominant in space, and American political leaders decided to go slow on developing anti-satellite weapons for fear of triggering a competition.

All that American restraint did was to allow the Chinese and Russian militaries to grab commanding leads in the race to deploy these impossible-to-defend-against delivery systems for nuclear weapons.

Unfortunately, "the Department of Defense is still unbelievably bureaucratic and slow."

The Pentagon's bureaucracy "is just brutal." — Outgoing Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General John Hyten, CNN, October 28, 2021.

Fortunately, there is also Elon Musk, a bureaucracy of one

America is now behind China in the ability to take down satellites. "The Shijian-21 satellite is a game-changer," says Weichert, who also produces The Weichert Report. "It is a real-world offensive capability that can hunt and destroy American systems and render the U.S. military on earth deaf, dumb, and blind."

I cannot verify the facts.

Wind mills…the rest of the story.   Who knew ?

Right now the average wind farm is about 150 turbines. Each wind turbine needs 80 gallons of oil as lubricant and we're not talking about vegetable oil, this is a PAO synthetic oil based on crude... 12,000 gallons of it. That oil needs to be replaced once a year.

It is estimated that a little over 3,800 turbines would be needed to power a city the size of New York... That's 304,000 gallons of refined oil for just one city.

Now you have to calculate every city across the nation, large and small, to find the grand total of yearly oil consumption from "clean" energy.

Where do you think all that oil is going to come from, the fricken oil fairies? Well thanks to Biden it now comes from our enemies in the Mideast.

Not to mention the fact that the large equipment needed to build these wind farms run on petroleum. As well as the equipment required for installation, service, maintenance, and eventual removal.

And just exactly how eco-friendly is wind energy anyway?

Each turbine requires a footprint of 1.5 acres, so a wind farm of 150 turbines needs 225 acres; In order to power a city the size of NYC you'd need 57,000 acres; and who knows the astronomical amount of land you would need to power the entire US. All of which would have to be clear-cut land because trees create a barrier & turbulence that interferes with the 20mph sustained wind velocity necessary for the turbine to work properly (also keep in mind that not all states are suitable for such sustained winds). Boy, cutting down all those trees is gonna piss off a lot of green-loving tree-huggers.

Let's talk about disposal now.

The lifespan of a modern, top quality, highly efficient wind turbine is 20 years. After that, then what? What happens to those gigantic fiber composite blades?

They cannot economically be reused, refurbished, reduced, repurposed, or recycled so guess what..? It's off to special landfills they go.

And guess what else..? They're already running out of these special landfill spaces for the blades that have already exceeded their usefulness. Seriously! Those blades are anywhere from 120 ft. to over 200 ft. long and there are 3 per turbine. And that's with only 7% of the nation currently being supplied with wind energy. Just imagine if we had the other 93% of the nation on the wind grid... 20 years from now you'd have all those unusable blades with no place to put them... Then 20 years after that, and 20 years after that, and so on.

Hello there, how green is that?

Oops, I almost forgot about the 500,000 birds that are killed each year from wind turbine blade collisions; most of which are endangered hawks, falcons, owls, geese, ducks, and eagles.

Apparently smaller birds are more agile and able to dart and dodge out of the way of the spinning blades, whereas the larger soaring birds aren't so lucky.

I'm sure the wildlife conservationist folks are just ecstatic about that.

I'm so glad the wind energy people are looking out for the world.

Here's another little problem with windmills-

The generator and switching equipment operate at high power and voltage. Everything in the windmill nacelle is compact due to limited space, so there's danger of arcs and electrical fires. This is prevented by putting all the electrical equipment in a pressure vessel filled with sulfur hexafluoride, a synthetic gas that has dielectric properties that suppress arcs and fires.

Problem is, windmills leak this gas, something around a pound each per year. SF6 has an atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years and is 22,800 times more effective as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

Manchin shows us that "ALL" DemoRats may not be BAD..!!! I hope I'm reading him correctly....!!

Joe Manchin Fires Back After Far-Left ‘Squad’ Member Cori Bush’s ‘Anti-Black’ Comments BY BECKY NOBLE  NOVEMBER 4, 2021

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a guy who has been around the D.C. swamp for a while, schooled newbie Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) on Wednesday when he responded to comments Bush recently made regarding Manchin’s opposition to the massive Build Back Better plan.

Bush, a far-left member of the ‘Squad’, accused Manchin of racism because of his reluctance to vote for the bill, saying, “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”...
.....

............Manchin Talks About Something Deeper

During his interview with Fox News Channel’s Brett Baier, Manchin talked about what he described as the “toxic” environment in Washington D.C., and in today’s political debate in general.

Manchin lamented:

“We can have a difference of opinion, but the rhetoric around here has gotten so harsh and so toxic that you can’t agree to disagree anymore. You can’t sit down and say, ‘Ok, I disagree with you, Bret. You’re going to say, ‘Ok, Joe, do we agree on the same problem?’ I say, ‘Yeah, let’s start working. Tell me what you think you would fix it. That’s not happening.”

And not only are those that are elected to go to Washington either unable or unwilling to have a difference of opinion, Manchin sees something far more ominous, and that is that no one, on either side of the aisle, seems to be discussing what is best for the country.

Manchin continued, “Let me tell you what I don’t hear that scares the bejesus out of me. I don’t hear people say, ‘This is good for our country.’ More or less, on both sides, it’s, ‘This is better for my party. This is better for the 2022 election.'”

Manchin is absolutely not alone there. Millions of Americans undoubtedly agree with that.

Manchin described an adult concept that the Cori Bush’s of the world do not grasp. The immature entitlement of thinking they can call someone a racist anytime they feel like it goes right over their heads, and this tactic will cease to work on fewer and fewer people.

Bush’s office did not respond to Manchin’s comments.

RIGGED: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections

Americans Would Be Horrified to Find Out the Many Ways the Election System is ‘Rigged’   Kyle Becker 3 days ago

What does it mean to a voter when someone claims an election is “rigged”? Does it mean that illegal votes are being cast? Does it mean a systematic bias against a candidate, like when Senator Elizabeth Warren claimed the 2016 Democratic primary was “rigged” in favor of Hillary Clinton? (Warren would then have the temerity to scold Trump for invoking the phrase ahead of his ultimately victorious 2016 presidential bid.) Does claiming an election was ‘rigged’ mean something very specific, suggesting Americans should tread lightly when uttering the suddenly forbidden phrase?

Oxford defines ‘rig’ in one sense as “the particular way in which a sailboat’s masts, sails, and rigging are arranged.” But in reference to elections, it merely means “to arrange or influence something in a dishonest way in order to get the result that you want.”

Thus, it is not controversial to point out that the 2020 election was “rigged” in that numerous states ahead of the 2020 presidential election coordinated to implement unlawful state election rules that violate constitutional due process.

“We know that five states, some of the five key states that were critical in this election, changed their election law in an unconstitutional fashion,” Rep. Jim Jordan, a House Judiciary Member, correctly pointed out on January 6.

Beyond the unlawful state election changes, such as mass mailings of ‘no excuse’ absentee ballots, as well as the use of ‘Zuckerberg boxes,’ or absentee ballot drop boxes put predominately in heavy blue districts, there are several more lesser-known, and indeed, extraordinary ways the U.S. election system is rigged to benefit the Democratic Party.

The Federalist’s Joy Pullmann recently delved into the topic of election-rigging and unearthed some truly shocking revelations. Her article is based on the new Mollie Hemingway book called, “Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections.” I highly recommend it and it has some cases that I skip over or only touch on. I also add a few more cases and add commentary of my own. Here are seven of the major takeaways from the book on how U.S. elections have been “rigged” for decades.

The DNC Controlled All Poll Watchers for 40 Years

“Shockingly, the 2020 contest was the first presidential election since Reagan’s first successful run in 1980 in which the Republican National Committee could play any role whatsoever in Election Day operations,” Hemingway writes.


OMG LOL Va Dems did *not* just send a black man to play a ‘white supremacist for Youngkin’

Last Ditch Hoax Shows ‘Confederate Flag Wearing Man’ at Youngkin Rally – Then People Get a Closer Look at Him    by Kyle Becker2 days ago

The last ditch November surprise to paint Republican candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin as a white supremacist was launched at a political rally in Loudoun County on Monday night.

The Youngkin rally drew hundreds of raucous supporters and opponents of the radical agenda of former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe.

Youngkin has experienced a surge in support in the closing weeks of the governor’s race and is now running in a dead heat with McAuliffe. The latest Fox News poll even showed McAuliffe trailing by eight points in a survey of likely voters.

But as MSNBC covered the Youngkin rally a suspiciously familiar tactic was deployed to slant the political candidate’s optics on the verge of election night. A photo of a man with a confederate jacket at the rally appears to have been first posted on Twitter by WUSA (CBS affiliate) reporter Mike Valerio at 10:22 pm.Within two minutes, an MSNBC reporter named Gary Grumbach (a ‘usual suspect,’ see more later) had reposted it onto his Twitter account.

A Salon “investigative reporter” then picked up on it five minutes after Grumbach and showed a slightly different angle.

The 'Peaceful Protest' Five Times Bigger than Jan. 6 the Liberal Media Refuses to Cover   Jared Whitley   Nov 03, 2021

If there’s one thing everyone in the country can agree on right now, it’s that we don’t really agree on anything in the country. The more precise, John Locke-ian way to describe would be that the social contract which is required for a free and open society has been fundamentally violated and – without it – no longer provides any cohesion to our political system.

Leftists will point to the support for Donald Trump as the right having violated the contract and that, having done so, gave them no choice but to respond with militant resistance. The right will say that five years of violence seems like a bit of an overreaction to a guy whose biggest crime was mean tweets.

And there’s no better example of this than the way the media covers right- vs. left-wing activism. A group of people waving American flags – or parents at a school board meeting! – are labeled domestic terrorists while rioters burning down buildings enjoy the Orwellian label “peaceful protesters.”

The hypocrisy has been sickening to watch over the last five years.

The most recent example is the far-left group’s unprecedented five-day protest in DC last week – directly attacking the Line 3 & DAPL through Minnesota. To give their violence the air of legitimacy, the group has fatuously titled their “direct action” the People vs. Fossil Fuels, even though state courts have rightfully ruled in favor of the energy- and job-producing pipeline.

The violent rioters laid siege to the Department of the Interior’s headquarters, demanding that Biden declare a "climate change national emergency" and end all government projects that use fossil fuels. They attempted to “occupy” the building, clashed with law enforcement, and sent security personnel to the emergency room. (All while doubtless tweeting about how wonderfully tolerant they are.)

All told, 78 people were arrested for obstructing traffic and three of them were charged with assault of a police officer. Many more were doubtless guilty of similar crimes and slipped through the cracks.

As far of the so-called progressive left’s cultural terrorism, they vandalized the Andrew Jackson statue outside of the White House. (One imagines the vandals don’t know about how the Cherokee Indians owned black slaves before the founder of the Democrat Party sent them on the Trail of Tears, but facts are immaterial at this point.)

The obvious comparison to make here is to the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill protest, where Trump supporters – and plenty of leftists under false flags – staged a minor scuffle over a couple of hours. But while one has been labeled an “insurrection,” the sustained raid on the Department of the Interior has been covered with a shrug and a smile.

Certainly, left-wing media outlets like The Washington Post and the Associated Press covered the violence, but with none of the seething hatred with which they have Jan. 6. Meanwhile, hero-journalist Andy NgĂ´ shared videos of the prolonged riot, which he described the scene at the federal building as “reminiscent of Jan. 6” as officers were forced to draw their stun guns.

Even those of us who mostly consume news from right-leaning outlets haven’t heard much about this calculated, violent attack in our nation's capital, which is a travesty. The level of ferocity the far-left has sunk to deserves coverage and justice. Regardless of the cause, all forms of illegal action like this violates our social contract and endangers the safety of first responders, bystanders, and others.

Furthermore, the Cult of the Woke’s article of faith that pipelines are inherently evil is wrong in every way. Pipeline infrastructure is handled ethically and with as little environmental impact as possible. Transporting fuel via pipeline is greener than with trucks and safer than with ships. And if we’re going to provide for all the social programs that the violent left demands, how will we pay for them if we cripple our commercial base?

This level of violence by radical leftists can’t be tolerated, and the hypocrisy from our failing fourth estate can’t be forgiven. Our social contract has been fundamentally violated, and if this level of urban warfare continues, then we won’t have a society at all.

Florida Democrats Inching Closer to Reality on Something About Ron DeSantis  Matt Vespa@mvespa1Posted: Nov 02, 2021

You can’t beat him. Thatwhat many Florida Democrats think about Ron DeSantis…a year from 2022 elections. It’s not really shocking though. The man has been an MVP candidate in owning the liberal media for over a year. He didn’t listen to the media when it came to COVID protocols. He knew better. He read the medical literature, which is why his vaccine rollout was better than say New York’s botched operation. He also vaccinated his state’s elderly and vulnerable first. Ex-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo killed his with his nursing home order. He also groped a bunch of women which led to him resigning in disgrace and then being formally charged for one incident. When it comes to red states and blue states, DeSantis owned all. And Democrats in the Sunshine State know it. Politico had a piece in it describing them as “anxious” (via Politico):

Gov. Ron DeSantis appears unstoppable.

It’s a situation that has alarmed Democrats, who fear that Florida’s days as a battleground state are over and that national donors will write off their candidates.

“Right now Democrats are engaged in Powerball politics. They could get lucky, but it’s more likely to happen because of circumstances outside their control rather than their ability to change the political environment in Florida,” said Fernand Amandi, a Miami-based Democratic political consultant and pollster who helped Barack Obama win the state in 2008 and 2012. 

 This is not the place Democrats expected to be three years ago when DeSantis beat then-Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by just under 34,000 votes. It signals that Democrats have much ground to cover before 2024 if they have any hopes of retaking Florida’s 30 electoral votes after former President Donald Trump won the state in 2016 and then by a larger gap in 2020.

A lot has changed since DeSantis was first elected. During the pandemic, DeSantis veered to the right as he touted an anti-lockdown, anti-mandate Covid stance. He pushed for laws and policies that targeted social media giants and racial justice protesters, and fought against the teaching of “critical race theory” in schools. His policies raised his profile nationally and have turned DeSantis into the leading 2024 presidential contender if Trump doesn’t run.

In a state that’s turning red, it’s working. Recent surveys shared with POLITICO show half of registered voters think the state is headed in the right direction, compared with only 25 percent who think the country is headed in the right direction.

State Rep. Anna Eskamani, a progressive Democrat from Orlando who considered challenging DeSantis, also acknowledges Democrats’ grim position.“The election’s not happening tomorrow, there is still time for the tide to turn,” Eskamani said. “But obviously it needs to be an all-hands-on-deck situation right now.”

 DeSantis can take the heat. He slaps back. He fights. And he wins. He’s also a good retail politician and most attacks against him are so over-the-top, they usually fizzle out on their own. Unless DeSantis screws up royally over the next year, then maybe Democrats have a shot. As of now, it’s not looking good for Democrats especially in a state that’s more diverse yet more Republican than it was in 2000.

CRT......LIKE IT OR NOT..... THEY'LL JUST CHANGE THE NAME


Race Theory: More Accusations In Hinsdale D-86   David Giuliani 1 day ago

© Shutterstock Hinsdale resident Michelle Ptak said last week that Hinsdale High School District 86 needs to rid itself of critical race theory, but she provided no evidence it was being taught at Hinsdale Central or South.

DARIEN, IL — A Hinsdale resident last week alleged a vendor for Hinsdale High School District 86 was a tool for spreading critical race theory.

During a school board meeting, resident Michelle Ptak focused on the district's $17,750 contract with Panorama Education Inc. The board unanimously approved the agreement in May, shortly after new members took office.

According to the district's information in May, Panorama was hired to help Hinsdale Central and South collect and analyze data about social-emotional learning, school climate and family engagement.

Ptak pointed out that Panorama's co-founder is Xan Tanner, the son-in-law of Attorney General Merrick Garland, an appointee of President Joe Biden.


"Why is the attorney general being questioned by the House Judiciary Committee and why is the inspector general being asked to investigate Attorney General Merrick Garland's link to Panorama, which is headed by his son-in-law and pushes critical race theory in schools?" she asked.

A few House Republicans have asked the inspector general to look into the connections.

Ptak asked for the purpose behind hiring Panorama.

"If your answer is to better serve and/or fix problems, what does race, ethnicity and gender have to do with any of that?" she said. "Breaking down opinions is in no way productive to fixing any issue at D-86."

She said the district was not answering her questions about the contract. She said it was hiding that the company could use D-86 data for its own purposes. The contract requires the company to keep student data private.

"Today, the administration faces no repercussions for another bad contract or for withholding information from the community and board. It is beyond poor oversight on the board's part and another example of the board rushing through an agenda without all the information," Ptak said.

She said the contract included no clause for poor performance. The agreement, however, does state either party may terminate for breach of contract.

Ptak contended the board continues to allow the administration to negotiate contracts when it lacks such sophistication.

"All of this is part and parcel to a culture cultivated by not only the administration, but by the board," Ptak said. "At this point, if the board doesn't remedy the culture and rid D-86 of (critical race theory) and politically entrenched programs that you have allowed, you are complicit."

Conservatives and liberals debate the definition of the theory, often called CRT. It's been around for four decades and examines societal issues through the lens of race. Proponents see racism as part of legal systems and policies, not just the result of individual prejudice.

Patch left a message for comment through Facebook with Ptak on whether she had evidence that critical race theory was being taught in the district. Others have suggested the theory was being promoted in the classroom, but they have yet to come forward with documentation.

In a statement to Patch on Monday, the district's spokesman, Chris Jasculca, said Panorama was being used to administer feedback surveys to students, faculty, staff and families.

"The insights and information we collect will be used to help build on our strengths," he said. "They will also enable us to better understand our opportunities for improvement and develop strategies and solutions for addressing them. These efforts are being undertaken in conjunction with the mission, vision, values and goals of our strategic plan, which include strengthening connections with our stakeholders and giving them a voice in the work we are doing to guide our students down the path toward their ideal future."

Panorama's contracts with school districts around the country have been undergoing scrutiny from conservatives.

Come On Man! [The Ballad Of Sleepy Joe]

Pierre Chalifoux

Joe Biden was recently elected the 46th President of the United States Of America following the very controversial and contested Election of 2020. This Political Satire is about Joe Biden's long career in politics and his multiple past Gaffes and ongoing verbal mistakes. "Come On Man" is also a Social Commentary on how the Media, BLM and other activist groups have taken the present Democratic Party so far to the Left that John F. Kennedy would not be welcomed into it! Joe Biden has enabled and succumbed to the Socialist wing of his party, all the while making America less safe in its inner cities and more exposed to harm due to his "Open Borders" policy. With the help of Big Tech and a complicit Media Mob, "Sleepy Joe" was elected without ever really leaving his basement or answering any questions from the Press. Normally media "covers" a political candidate. In Joe's case, they "covered" for him and "covered up" for him. Newsflash!!! They will continue to do so till Kamala relieves him of his occasional duties. Joe Biden is the most Far-Left President in modern history and is beholding to the special interest groups that helped him get to the Whitehouse. Russia, Iran and China certainly do not fear this often confused, inarticulate and feeble so-called leader. The hardest job in the world has fallen into the hands of an incompetent! Regardless of which side of the political spectrum you are on, this will hopefully entertain you. It may possibly make you reflect and provide you with some much needed laughter in these unusual times.
