Did you watch Tulsi Gabbard subbing for Tucker tonight?
What a self-righteous bitch. Tulsi dug into newly elected Republican George Santos (R-NY) for, I guess, lies he told prior to his election. Shocker! A politician, of either party, lied? This must be the first time.
Tulsi interrupted him, cut him off verbally and her pious and holier than thou demeanor was vomit inducing.
She's a lifelong Democrat, served eight years as a House Rep and just like that, in 2022 changed her political identification to, "Independent." Funny, we never heard a peep from her about the lies told by her fellow Dems during her House tenure nor did she hold them to the same standard she applied to Santos.
She served a four-year term as a vice chair of the Democratic National Committee.
She endorsed Bernie Sanders in 2016.
She's for legalization of all drugs. Great! We don't have enough OD's happening on a daily basis and there's all sorts of room available at ERs and tons of available money to deal with this problem.
Her first marriage lasted only four years. No surprise here for me.
Many stories appear of her being a member of Klaus Schwab's (Young Global Leaders) Word Economic Forum. She denies this, yet, there's no proof she wasn't.
None of this excuses Santos' embellishment of his past. What it does is it shines a bright light on Tulsi's blatant hypocrisy.
Oh look! Tulsi making one of the NWO hand gestures. No one who does this does it accidentally. She's a two-faced cunt.
I think she's a complete fake. What's her angle?
Mall of America shooting Update.
MSN: Charging extension granted in MOA fatal shooting: "Evidence continues to be reviewed".
Johntae Hudson, 19, succumbed to his injuries after being shot inside the Nordstrom department store on Friday.
Bloomington Police Chief Booker Hodges says it appears there was a physical altercation prior to the shooting. ["It appears." ??? - WTF? - DD] Videos posted on social media show shoppers hiding in stores. Some videos show shoppers running for cover after a loud bang is heard. One bystander's coat was grazed by a bullet.
The day after the shooting, police announced five people were arrested in St. Louis Park in connection to the shooting. The individuals arrested include three 17-year-old boys and two 18-year-old men. They are being held on pending charges of second-degree murder, police said.
"We know the how, we know the where, we know the what and we know the who. We don't know the why," Hodges said. [Does "why" need to be specifically articulated when someone is shot to death? - DD]
Gov. Tim Walz said after the shooting that the violence at the mall on Friday night was "absolutely unacceptable." He said he was in touch with local officials to provide support and resources.
This is the second lockdown Mall of America has gone on this year--shots fired outside the Nike store prompted a lockdown in August. On New Year's Eve of 2021, the mall went into lockdown after two people were shot on the third level of the mall.
Walz: "absolutely unacceptable." Mmm-huh. Way to go out on a limb there, Fat Man. This, from the guy who was...allegedly...too inebriated to make rational decisions and deploy the National Guard during the 2020 Floyd riots, mayhem, looting and the destruction/arson/burning of nearly 400 properties in Minneapolis.
More - KSTP: Police: Charging deadline extended for cases stemming from fatal Mall of America shooting.
According to police, a charging extension has been granted, meaning charges from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office will be due at 12 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 28.
The charges must also be filed against all five suspects by that time.
As previously reported, five people – including three 17-year-olds – have been arrested. They have yet to be identified by police due to their age status as minors. Two others, 18-year-olds Taeshawn Wright and Deandre Depratto, are also suspected of playing a role in Friday’s shooting.
Police believe either Wright or Depratto pulled the trigger and killed 19-year-old Raymon Hudson of St. Paul at some point during a fight involving nine people in the mall’s Nordstrom store Friday evening.
No idea why one story refers to the decedent's first name as Johntae and the other story as Raymon. There aren't many reliable news sources in the Twin Cities.
Walz is a disaster. In everything. He is a successful boozehound. At least that's the chatter from inside the Governor's Mansion. Crack open another case of PBR you obese grifter.
Is attorney Ben Crump in town? Hmmmmm...probably not since it doesn't seem the shooter(s) is/are white.

Twitter Files 9.0 Reveals Coordination Between Tech Giant & Govt Agencies Other Than FBI.
Libs, RINOs and the medical community are thoroughly corrupt. But we already knew this.
Twitter Files 9, Substack by Matt Taibbi: Twitter Files Thread: The Spies Who Loved Twitter From FBI to DNI the DNI to "OGA," the full thread on Twitter and its intelligence partners.
After weeks of “Twitter Files” reports, the FBI issued a statement Wednesday.
It didn’t refute allegations. Instead, it decried “conspiracy theorists” publishing “misinformation,” whose “sole aim” is to “discredit the agency.”
3. They must think us unambitious, if our “sole aim” is to discredit the FBI. After all, a whole range of government agencies discredit themselves in the #TwitterFiles. Why stop with one?
4. The files show the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.

He called for an immediate stop to the mRNA vaccines.

The Epoch Times: New ‘Twitter Files’ Show Company Suppressed COVID Information From Doctors and Experts.
Twitter appeared to succumb to pressure from federal officials to moderate content around COVID-19, including blocking a post by a former Harvard scientist who offered critical feedback against COVID-19 vaccines in 2021, according to the latest installment of the Elon Musk-endorsed “Twitter Files” posted Monday morning.
[...] a Twitter moderator flagged a post from former Harvard School of Medicine professor Martin Kulldorff because it violated the the social media firm’s COVID-19 misinformation policy and asserted that he was posting “false information.” When the firm took action against his post, it was labeled as “misleading” and all likes and replies were turned off, which prevented the post from being shared more widely.
“The United States government pressured Twitter and other social media platforms to elevate certain content and suppress other content about COVID-19,” [journalist David] Zweig also wrote, adding that when the current administration took over last year, “one of their first meeting requests with Twitter executives was on COVID.” The focus, namely, was regarding “anti-vaxxer accounts,” internal emails show.

Just a few finishing touches! Hope you and your loved ones are having a great Christmas Eve.
Sorry for the delay in getting to comments.
Usually on Christmas Day I make the rounds to blogs and sites and wish a Merry Christmas to all. I was under the weather yesterday.
Christmas Eve Day, and Eve, I felt fine. We had a busy day. Had dinner. Opened gifts Saturday night. It was all good.
Sunday morning, around 4AM or so, I felt it coming...and puked my guts out. Then, the headache came. Then the chills. Went back to bed. Slept most of the day. No nasal or lung congestion, no sore throat, no body aches, no fever. Just a moderate dry cough that really put a dent into my enjoyment of cigarettes. No one else got sick, so I'm ruling out that it was anything we ate.
Woke up at 6PM Christmas Day. Logged on and planned to update the comments but the stamina wasn't there. Everyone else spent Christmas Day at the house of a relative for the day, so I was home alone, mostly sleeping except for breaks for GatorAde, getting something in my stomach and dosing multi-vitamins, extra C, D, and Zinc and Emergen-C, which for me, is a miracle cure anytime I'm feeling under the weather.
Checking online for "Covid symptoms" is such a bunch of BS. "Covid may or may not produce a DRY cough." "A headache may or may not precede the onset of covid." What a crock; "may or may not."
I'm now enjoying coffee and cigarettes, so I'm on the rebound, but going to take it easy for the day. It appears my immune system is working as designed! Amen for that!
I plan the music videos out a week or more ahead of time, so that's why they're always there.
I'm so sorry I didn't make the rounds to wish those on my Blog Roll a Merry Christmas on Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and that this week, and New Year's Eve, is enjoyed by all.
Now, onto publishing and replying to comments that I didn't get to.

Mall of America shooting update.
Boston.com: Police: 19-year-old killed in shooting at Mall of America.
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A teenager was killed during a shooting at the Mall of America on Friday that sent frightened customers at the nation’s largest shopping center racing into a lockdown just before the holiday weekend, police said.
Bloomington Police Chief Booker Hodges said the victim was a 19-year-old man. A bystander’s jacket was also grazed by a bullet during the shooting at the mall’s Nordstrom location.
There appeared to be some type of altercation between two groups and at one point, someone pulled out a gun and shot the victim multiple times, the chief said. The entire incident lasted about 30 seconds.
Hodges urged the gunman and the others involved in the fight to turn themselves into police.
“We are going to catch you, we are going to lock you up and you are going to get an orange jumpsuit,” he said. “It’s just a matter of when it’s going to happen.”
"Groups" = Gangs?

4,155 pages and $1.7 TRILLION Dollars!
FOX Business News: Five eye-popping spending items in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill.
Federal lawmakers made public a massive $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill on Tuesday morning.
The release of the bill, which spans 4,155 pages, comes after negotiations between Senate Republicans and House and Senate Democrats.
Some lawmakers voiced complaints about the turnaround time to read the bill that contains $858 billion in defense spending and $772.5 billion in non-defense discretionary spending. Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop pointed to certain provisions of the bill in a lengthy Twitter thread in the afternoon, calling them "egregious."
The bill contains $858 billion in defense spending and $772.5 billion in non-defense discretionary spending.
One earmark included in the spending bill asks for $3.6 million for a project called "Michelle Obama Trail – PATH Trail Project" in Georgia. *
No, Big Mike's Trail isn't one of the "eye-popping" spending items. Big Mike has something else that is eye-popping.
When did Libs begin worshiping at the Altar of The MIC?
This omnibus bill isn't funny. DC is spending money that doesn't exist.
Read Rep. Dan Bishop's Twitter Thread on this bill HERE.
[The bill] "allocates $410 million towards border security for Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman."
Oh, nice that our tax dollars will help border security in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, and Oman. What - are there a lot of illegals from Mexico, Latin America, Argentina and Haiti trying to cross into those countries?
This bill is supported by RINO Mitch McWorthless, who referred to the bill's $45 billion in military and economic aid for Ukraine, as [a], "'Number One Priority’ for Republicans amid Inflation, Border Crisis."
But damn you if you accrue over $600 in your Venmo, PayPal or Cash App and fail to report it. The IRS will subject you to a fiscal colonoscopy.
* The Michelle Obama Trail is noted in Rep. Bishop's Twitter Thread. (not the FOX Business link.) Scroll down about 10 Tweet's, you can't miss it, it's in BIG LETTERS.
I know what I copy and paste and I know it was included in the FOX story. They must have updated it and removed Obama's Trail sentence. Then, it was re-Archived. That's strange. I know what I copy/paste!
The TWITTER FILES PART 8: How Twitter Quietly Aided the Pentagon’s Covert Online PsyOp Campaign - Lee Fang.
Lee Fang @lhfang (in chrono order):
Despite promises to shut down covert state-run propaganda networks, Twitter docs show that the social media giant directly assisted the U.S. military’s influence operations.
3. But behind the scenes, Twitter gave approval & special protection to the U.S. military’s online psychological influence ops. Despite knowledge that Pentagon propaganda accounts used covert identities, Twitter did not suspend many for around 2 years or more. Some remain active.
4. In 2017, a U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) official sent Twitter a list of 52 Arab language accounts “we use to amplify certain messages.” The official asked for priority service for six accounts, verification for one & “whitelist” abilities for the others.
18. The reality is much more murky. Twitter actively assisted CENTCOM’s network going back to 2017 and as late as 2020 knew these accounts were covert/designed to deceive to manipulate the discourse, a violation of Twitter’s policies & promises. They waited years to suspend.
This release is damning for Twitter, Social Media and the Government. Some would call this behavior treasonous and seditious. Not a peep from the ACLU or Liberals who claim they care about this type of collusion. Shocking!
New Zealand Govt goes police state. Snitch on family and friends. Report them as, "terrorists,"...

If this had been done by a Republican, we'd be watching MSM impeachment coverage 24/7. Not only this, but the FBI was in constant contact with Twitter and FB on what news and stories to spike.

Biden gets testy over his age. "You think I don’t know how f—ing old I am?"
NY Post: Biden snaps over ‘f—ing’ age talk as he mulls re-election run.
The oldest-ever commander-in-chief, who turned 80 last month, has “vented to allies” about how much the topic is discussed in the media as he sizes up a bid for a second term in 2024, Politico reported Tuesday.
“You think I don’t know how f—ing old I am?” an exasperated Biden — who reportedly has a penchant for profanity — ranted to one of his acquaintances earlier this year, according to the outlet.
Poll after poll has show Biden’s age and health are serious concerns for most voters.
In [an MSNBC] interview, Biden suggested that he actually felt closer to 50 years old than 80.

The problems we face now as a country are directly tied to the actions of Bush and Obama. First, the Bush administration monitored the communication of American citizens; and, secondly, Obama’s team fine-tuned and used that system against their political opponents and American citizens - and finally Trump and MAGA.

4) Crop failures / worsening food scarcity
5) Inflation and bailouts / zombie stimulus
6) Banking restrictions on withdrawals of cash
This is already taking place in Nigeria, where bank customers are limited to withdrawals of just $45 a day of their own money. As more governments and central banks push hard into digital currencies, watch for them to make dealing with cash and banks more and more painful, if not at some point impossible. We anticipate bank freezes, bail-ins and insolvency failures beginning in 2023 and continuing for years to come.
7) Digital money rolling out
8) A new pandemic, worse than covid
9) Worldwide CLIMATE lockdowns and engineered fuel scarcity
10) Populist revolts against corrupt governments and rigged elections
11) Huge pushback against censorship by tech platforms
12) Explosion in home gardening and off grid food production, local food barter

Oh noez! Europe is having a Wind Drought. So much for turbine power.
Green Matters: European Wind Turbines at a Standstill Amid an Ongoing "Wind Drought".
But as of recently, barely even a breeze has made its way through the through the winter air.
"Britain is in the middle of a wind drought — and the timing couldn't have been worse. For several days now, the U.K. and western Europe have been calm, with barely a breeze," Thomas Moore writes for Sky News.
"It is not until Wednesday, or even Thursday, that speeds pick up in Scotland and the North Sea, where most of our wind farms are. That shows in the mix of energy being used in the freezing conditions."
"The risks could increase with global warming," [🤣 - DD] he continues. "Scientists working for the United Nations' intergovernmental panel on climate change have looked at what could happen to wind speeds in future. Even if the world reaches net zero soon after 2050, limiting the rise in temperature, winds will weaken significantly in the northern hemisphere." ["Even if." FFS. Retardicus Maximus. - DD]
According to Yale Environment 360, the phrase "wind drought" is exactly what it sounds like — it refers to an extended period of time that an area lacks wind, or experiences slower-than-usual wind speeds. In 2021, wind speeds were 15 percent slower than in previous years, making for one of the least windy periods in the U.K. in nearly 60 years.
What are "usual wind speeds"?
