Hire weird and sketchy clowns and don’t be surprised when the office turns into a circus. Dept of Energy Nuclear Waste official Sam Brinton made headlines months ago for being an odd duck hired into a senior DoE position.
His resume’ included teaching a “Kink 101” workshop at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and his qualifications included several degrees from MIT and a non-binary gender fluid identity. However, stories are now surfacing of Mr/Ms Brinton stealing luggage containing women’s clothing from the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) International Airport.
(New York Post) – […] Brinton — who serves as the DOE’s deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition — allegedly took a Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the luggage carousel at the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport (MSP) on Sept. 16, according to a criminal complaint filed on Oct. 26 in Minnesota state court and obtained by Fox News Digital. Brinton had traveled from Washington, DC, to MSP that day.
After the suitcase’s owner alerted police, officers reviewed video surveillance of the carousel and identified Brinton taking the luggage before removing its tag identifying the owner, the court filings stated. Law enforcement observed Brinton using the luggage during at least two other trips to Washington, D.C., on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9. (read more)

Nerves are on edge as the police in/around Moscow, Idaho, admit today the person or persons who murdered four University of Idaho students is still unknown.
In the early morning hours of Sunday four students were stabbed to death in their off-campus residence. Media descriptions of the scene are gruesome in the extreme as blood was reported to be oozing from the floor and building.
The victims (pictured left) are Ethan Chapin, 20; Madison Mogen, 21; Xana Kernodle, 20; and Kaylee Goncalves, 21, who police say were attacked with an “edged weapon” likely a knife.
All four victims were killed by stabbing. There were two other people in the house who did not hear anything and are not suspects.
According to Fox news, Police have not recovered a weapon or publicly identified a suspect in the quadruple homicide, which has shaken the small town of 25,000 people. (more)
Dear God, bring these grieving parents and families to Your throne of comfort. Their pain is unimaginable as they anguish the loss of their children and loved ones. Father of mercy and comfort wrap Your loving arms around them. Help them to breathe and overcome the choking knot of despair in their throat. Please provide strength for their continued faith in You even through this unfathomable pain. Lavish them with Your love and fill the void in their crushed and broken hearts.
In Jesus’ powerful name, I believe and pray.

The Republican has won the House. It took more than a week for the Associated Press to determine the GOP had won the 218 seats necessary to control the chamber. Never in my entire life have I ever witnessed an election take this long to find out who won. This is all the paper absentee ballots where my own staff could right a national voting program in less than one month and you do not need the paper nonsense. Dead people will not be able to vote and there will be no harvesting of ballots.
While the press wants to portray this as an underwhelming performance for the Republicans when they should have won hands-down considering the national decline in confidence in Biden that normally would have worked to their advantage, the corruption in the election process has been itself unprecedented.
Our computer was correct – there would be no red wave. The report ($14.95) provided our Timing Arrays forecasting politics out for 12 years. The Republicans would take the House but not the Senate for this would be an extremely tight election due to the corruption. The whole point of the press calling for a red tidal wave was to make sure Republicans felt their vote was not needed so why bother? That was a strategy to keep that up in the press. I saw the same tactic was used to get Jimmie Carter elected. I remember that well for even I concluded it was so overwhelming I did not vote – they didn’t need me. Then you woke up with a surprise nobody expected.
This will now contribute to 2023 where we see rising civil unrest and the Republicans will bring impeachment proceedings against Biden and dive into the Hunter Laptop like never before. The Democrats are about to find out what goes around – comes around. All civility in politics has been tossed out the window.
This is the decline and fall of America. The country is now so divided, there is simply no possible way to ever bring it back to the middle. The Democrats still hate Trump and will push to discredit all Republicans using Trump. The hateful way politics has emerged ensures there is absolutely NOBODY on a white horse who will save the day. It will be soon to just turn out the lights.

The Democrat left-wing policy platform includes unlimited abortion, denunciation of the traditional family, declarations that excessive populations create climate crisis and other less obvious points of advocacy that eliminate domestic population growth. However, in order for left-wing politicians to continue advancing ridiculous ideological policy, they must pretend not to know things…. Here comes Senator Chuck Schumer.
During a pantomime script to advance the goal of amnesty for illegal aliens, Chuck Schumer pretends not to know his party agenda is to reduce the American workforce. Now Senator Schumer claims the absence of a growing population is the reason why amnesty for illegal aliens must be accomplished. WATCH (20 seconds):
The leftist arguments are so weak and built upon tenuous foundations of lies, they literally collapse when challenged or confronted. This is why Democrats never want to debate their positions. All of their policies are built upon hypocrisy, fraud and illogically false constructs. Leftism demands the suspension of logic.

Conservatives did not experience the red wave that they were hoping to see. Voting trends historically show the youth voting in favor of Democrats. As the quote often attributed to John Adams goes, “If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35, You Have No Brain.”
Pretending to champion one-voter issues with the backing of celebrities adds to this trend. A new NBC poll examined the exit polling data from voters between 18 and 29 (12% of the electorate) and 63% voted Democrat, while only 35% in this age range voted Republican.
People turn to the Republican Party as time goes on. Those 30 to 44 (21% of the electorate) voted 51% in favor of Democrats and 47% in favor of Republicans. The next age bracket, 45 to 64 (39% of the electorate), voted 44% in favor of Democrats and 54% in favor of Republicans. Those 65 and older (28% of the electorate) voted 43% Democrat and 55% Republican.
As we can see, support for conservative leadership grows with age and wisdom.

Remember when America was energy independent? Gas was under $2 per gallon, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was full, and our lawmakers did not have to grovel at the feet of our adversaries who are declining to help us anyway. The only reason America has an energy crisis is because Joe Biden eliminated domestic energy efforts on his first day of office. Now, he is assuring voters that the Biden Administration will keep energy prices inflated.
“No more drilling,” Biden said to a climate change protestor while campaigning for New York Governor Kathy Hochul. “There is no more drilling. I haven’t formed any new drilling,” Biden stated. When questioned about offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Biden said he planned to eliminate that project as it began before he took office.
A few days earlier, Biden promised to destroy America’s coal sector. Biden touted that wind and solar technology is cheaper, as he clearly does not realize they cannot replace coal at this time. “So it’s going to become a wind generation. And all they’re doing is it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money, and using the same transmission line that they transmitted the coal-fired electric on, we’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America,” the president stated.
Biden is suggesting that coal miners simply become computer programmers. “Anybody who can go down 300-3,000 feet in a mine sure as hell can learn how to program as well,” Biden said at a campaign event. “But we don’t think of it that way. Anybody who can throw coal into furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake.” The war on fossil fuels will continue under the Democrats.

Oregon is a beautiful picturesque state. Mountains, waterfalls, and beautiful beaches – Oregon was once a desirable place to live. Portland was a promising metropolitan area before politicians completely destroyed the city with light-on-crime policies.
The Portland Business Journal reported that high-earning residents relocated to areas like Deschutes County, Arizona, and Texas. As in all societies, the highest earners who have the ability to relocate are the first to flee crumbling cities. Multnomah County saw a decline of 2,000 taxpayers between 2019 and 2020, but more have likely fled.
As of June, the average rent in Portland was $1,700, but many will tell you that estimate is low. This is not why homelessness has spiked. Over the past two years alone, the homeless population increased by 25%! Homeless camps have moved into the suburbs as people simply have nowhere to go. The city has attempted to authorize homeless encampment sites in certain areas, but there is not enough room. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) has done nothing to address the mental health and drug abuse crises at the root of the problem. This is an extremely sad situation, as no one should live in this manner.
The pandemic added to the crisis, but Portland declared a state of emergency back in 2015 due to the drastic number of unhoused people. Oregon legalized hard drugs in February 2021. People may legally carry heroin, cocaine, methadone, oxycodone, and even methamphetamine for personal use. Most users will only face a $100 fine. Drug overdoses rose by 41% in 2020 from the year prior.
As we have seen in many Democrat-run cities, theft is basically legal. The Organized Retail Crime Association of Oregon (ORCAOR) conducted a poll that found 95% of businesses are unhappy with the relaxed crime laws, and 80% admitted theft had risen significantly. “We’ve seen an increase in assaults, in drug use within the stores, threats, individuals threatening with weapons,” said Jeremy Girard, the president of ORCAOR, who conducted the survey in late spring. Around 80% said there was not an adequate police response, but that is because they voted to defund the police and urged them to turn a blind eye to crime.
Businesses are closing, and people are fleeing the city. The Oregon Mayors Association wants to spend $123.5 million annually to prolong the problem rather than address the causes. Another example of poor policies ruining a blue city and asking taxpayers for more funding to throw money at the problem.

There is a disconnect between what the MSM have been saying about the midterm election and the background Democrat party activity in the final days before the midterm election.
While most media watercarriers for Democrats have been claiming the races will be tight, close and control over both the Senate and House are narrow margins, the Democrat party apparatus is sending emergency funds to support deep blue candidates in races where they previously claimed their victory margins were too big to fail.
If the deep blue seats are vulnerable, their seats in districts of marginal support must be considerably more vulnerable.
(Politico) House Democrats’ top super PAC is making a last-minute buy to aid Rep. Joe Morelle, a New York Democrat in a deep-blue seat — the latest sign that the battle for the House is lurchingtoward the GOP.
Morelle, who was elected in 2018 to replace the late Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter, holds a Rochester-area district that backed President Joe Biden by 20 points in 2020. His Republican opponent, La’Ron Singletary, is a former Rochester police chief who has staked his campaign on rising crime rates in New York. House Majority PAC will go on air this week for Morelle with a $275,000 buy, according to data from the media tracking firm AdImpact.
The incumbent has spent close to $800,000 on TV, while Singletary has spent just $160,000, according to AdImpact. But there has been growing concern from Democratic operatives in recent weeks that blue states, such as Oregon and New York, are racing away from them.
[…] It’s possible the late spending is only out of an abundance of caution — but it’s not a good sign for Democrats with just a week to go until the midterms. At least two other seats Biden carried by 20 points have become problem spots for Democrats. Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) has begun warning colleagues that her Southern California district could be in trouble.
And Pennsylvania Democrat Summer Lee went on TV with an ad last week, warning voters not to be confused by the fact that her Republican opponent has the same name as retiring DemocraticRep. Mike Doyle. (read more)
The upcoming midterm election next week poses a seriously interesting dynamic, when contrast against the claimed ballot outcomes of 2020.
In a general sense, the far-left (totalitarian big government socialists and democrat communists) has always appeared to hold approximately 15% support from the general electorate. This baseline puts roughly 85% of the U.S. population suffering through the consequences of an ideological minority in control of policy.
Additionally, there is a direct correlation between the genuine size of the group in power and the extreme use of control over the rest of the population.
The smaller the group in power, the more severe their ideological policy. As a direct result that group needs to trigger the most severe control mechanisms within their authority – like using federal police, nationalized military, national security state systems, FBI activation, domestic surveillance, legal threats, social intimidation, etc.
The need for control, is a reaction to fear. You can always gauge the scale of general public support for those in power by the way those in power behave in real life. While this baseline is generally uncomfortable for the minority group to accept, this reality is a historic and empirical truth. Less public support for government = the need for more government control systems.
The 2020 election was an inflection point for the small ideological group currently in power within the United States Government.
The dynamic of “fear” is the most often deployed weapon whenever this historic dynamic surfaces. However, when the larger population of people stop responding to fear tactics and begin to mock those who are threatening to harm them, things generally change quickly.
The length of time it takes a population to stop being fearful is the exact amount of time those in power have as ruling elite. Once fear is removed from the equation, the ruling elite dissolve very quickly and try to fit into the crowd.
We are supposed to believe that 85 million people voted for Joe Biden in 2020. This did not happen. There is a big difference between 85 million people voting, and 85 million ballots being collected.
The process of collecting ballots by scheme, fraud and manipulative deception, sets the stage for the larger question of how such a harvesting ruse can be maintained over the shorter arc of election cycles. What institutional systems would be needed to maintain a lie on the scale of 85 million ballots?
Regardless of how you answer that question, it is worth asking the follow-up: what happens when you remove fear from that institutional dynamic?
A journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step….
A deception of a thousand scales can crumble with just one vote…
