Soros-owned DA Kim Gardner found GUILTY on 141 founts of misconduct and misrepresentation

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner
ICYMI| St Louis DA Kim Gardner is in a world of hurt after she lost her appeal for refusing to turn over her communications with operatives of George Soros and others in her prosecution of former Gov Eric Greitens. A court has already found that she committed 62 acts of misconduct and 79 cases of misrepresentation in convicting Greitens of crimes he did not commit. He was later cleared and the extremely popular Greitens is now running for the US Senate from Missouri.

Gardner has been a disaster for St Louis. Last year there more murders in St Louis than at any time in the last 50 years. Gardner has refused to prosecute so many murderers that the Missouri legislature had to pass a law limiting the time she had to file murder charges to 90 days. After that, the state Attorney General takes over the case.

Gardner refused to prosecute cases of drug dealers and child molesters even when there was enough evidence to make them open and shut cases. Her excuse was that the police are racists and she refused to take cases from over 20 policemen at all.

Comment: The sooner Ms. Gardner is given the boot in St. Louis, and a serious DA installed, the better off the city will be. But Gardner is only one of an entire phalanx of Soros-installed DAs. As can be expected, those cities are also in deplorable shape.

Lunacy: Dem-dominated Denver suburb bans new gas stations to 'fight climate change'

The city council in Louisville, Colorado voted to set the cap at six filling stations for its 21,000 residents.
A Democratic-led suburb in Colorado is doing its "obligation" to fight climate change — approving a proposed ban on all new gas stations.

The city council in Louisville — 20 miles outside Denver — voted Tuesday to set the cap at six filling stations for its 21,000 residents. A seventh would be allowed only if it's part of a large retail center.

Any new station would also be required to include at least two charging stations for electric vehicles — and be 1,000 feet away from an existing station.

"I don't think any single action this council or community takes is going to fix climate change," council member Maxine Most said during the vote. "But I think it's a really good idea to decarbonize because it sends a signal and it sends a message."


Jury acquits Oath Keepers member on 3 felony counts, mistrial declared on last one in Jan 6th case

The Deep State suffered a loss in court.

Back in July 2022, Oath Keepers member Michael Greene was charged despite the fact that he never went into the Capitol and committed no violence on January 6th.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported (July 2nd, 2022):

Michael Greene was working security for the different Trump events on January 6th. Greene never went inside the Capitol and never engaged in ANY violence.

Stewart Rhodes claims the DOJ has indicted Greene because he is a witness for several Oath Keepers. So now the regime is going to intimidate and threaten Michael Greene hoping that he changes his testimony. And the DOJ is lying about Greene's case. Greene never ordered any Oath Keepers into the US Capitol on January 6th. There is no truth to that claim at all.

Poll: Biden approval slumps to near lowest point of Presidency

Approval of President Joe Biden has dipped to near the lowest point of his tenure in office, a poll released Thursday reveals.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research conducted the polling and the results chart fluctuations in voter support for Biden over recent months.

The president notched an approval rating of 38 percent in the poll, after 45 percent said they approved in February and 41 percent in January. His ratings hit their lowest point of his presidency last July, at 36 percent, as the full weight of rising gasoline, food and other costs began to hit U.S. households.

The polling further sets out doubts surrounding the president's handling of the national economy and his ability to project authority as he charts the nation's economic course in an increasingly troubled world marked by inflation and bank failures.

Proud Boys in Raleigh, North Carolina, November 2020.
The Proud Boys sedition trial was suspended for a second time on Wednesday after the feds admitted in court that a witness intimately involved in the Proud Boys' defense team was secretly an FBI informant.

Comment: This is as dirty as it gets. The DOJ should be on trial for their miscarriage of justice, not the Proud Boys.

The individual is pushing gender change surgeries for children in Minnesota.

USA Today has picked a trans-identified male as it's 'woman of the year' for a second time running, and this time it's someone who advocates for child sex changes.

The media outlet has chosen Leigh Finke as its 'woman of the year' for Minnesota. Finke was the first transgender legislator to be appointed to the Minnesota House of Representatives in November.

House GOP hold DOJ accountable for weaponizing the FBI against angry parents at school board meetings

Merrick Garland Wesley Hunt
On Thursday, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution and Limited Government held a hearing, "Free Speech: The Biden Administration's Chilling of Parents' Fundamental Rights."

The accusation against the Biden Administration was not fabricated. As witnesses described in the hearing, on October 4, 2021, at the behest of the National School Boards Association, Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the FBI via a letter to meet with local and national law enforcement leaders to "discuss strategies" to handle the "increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members."

The DOJ directed the FBI to use the same tools they use to fight domestic extremism to combat angry parents who took their complaints over forced masking, poor educational practices, critical race and gender theory to school boards.

University president decries drag as 'derisive, divisive and demoralizing misogyny,' says school 'will not host a drag show on campus'

In a message to students, faculty, and staff, West Texas A&M University President Walter Wendler said that drag performances denigrate women and declared that the school will not host a drag performance on campus.

In an Instagram post earlier this month, the WTAMU "Spectrum" student organization advertised the drag event, noting, "Spectrum is working with F1RSTGEN and other orgs on campus to produce A Fool's Drag Race, coming soon!"

Comment: UPDATE: Petition hits 7000 signatures. From NY Post:
But students railed against Wendler's views, with some arguing the cancellation violates their free speech and grossly misinterprets drag as a performance art.

More than 7,000 people have signed an online petition started to try to save the show, which would've donated all its proceeds to the Trevor Project, a nonprofit focused on suicide prevention in LGBTQ youth.

The petition blasts Wendler for citing his own personal religious beliefs as reasons to cancel the show at a public, non-religiously affiliated university and for comparing drag to blackface and other derogatory works.

"Not only is this a gross and abhorrent comparison of two completely different topics, but it is also an extremely distorted and incorrect definition of drag as a culture and form of performance art," the petition reads.

The petition also argues that Wendler is violating West Texas A&M University's own policy, which says the university may not take action against a student organization on the basis of religion.

Students have protested the last-minute change outside the Student Union all week, KAMR Local News 4 reported.

President of the Hispanic Student Association Juan Aguinaga told the outlet, "It's just concerning because the drag show was meant to be for the Trevor Project, which is an organization dealing with the prevention of suicide amongst LGBTQ teens and young adults."

"It's just really disheartening to know the basis is in his email, against drag is a threat against womanhood, and he links it towards blackface. So, I don't really get the point he's trying to make," Aguinaga said.

"The point he's trying to make" is not really that difficult to grasp, and doesn't require a religious perspective to understand. Drag is a parody of women which could be deemed as offensive, the same way blackface is a parody of black people and could be deemed as offensive. He's calling out a double-standard.

IPCC's increasingly shrill climate armageddon fantasies gain little traction in media

end of the world sign
The recently-published IPCC synthesis report is a useful summary of the last five years of supra-national climate activism and hysteria undertaken under the control of the United Nations. The big takeaway from the 36-page summary for policymakers of the sixth assessment reports is that a large group of activists and state-funded scientists have signed up to the improbable notion that the climate should be stable, and any variation can somehow be controlled by humans. To support this suggestion, almost all the evidence provided is opinion, somehow given credence by being produced by computer models. Actual scientific facts are very thin on the ground.

In addition, a stonking level of economic naïvety is on display. At one point, the environmental footprint of battery production and "growing concerns" about critical minerals is noted, but with what is described as medium confidence, "this can be addressed by material and supply diversification strategies and material efficiency improvements, and circular material flows".

It might be observed that this type of meaningless waffle is often produced by people who have never run a wealth-generating activity. Something will turn up, seems to be the hope, as collectivists promote their command-and-control Net Zero agenda. Meanwhile, the 'unit' cost of renewable energy is said to have fallen in recent years, but no account is taken of the enormous costs involved in countering the unreliable and intermittent nature of wind and solar power.

IOC cannot be 'political referee', president says following objections to reinstate Russia into Olympic games

FILE PHOTO: Fifteen year-old Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva is seen in practice at the Bejiing Winter Olympics, February 2022. The International Olympic Committee has defended plans to include Russian and Belarusian athletes at the Paris 2024 Games.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) must not act as a "political referee," according to its president, Thomas Bach. The organization has faced a backlash for its plans to reinstate Russian and Belarusian athletes to international competition ahead of the Paris Games in 2024.

Speaking at the Ruhr Political Festival in Essen, Germany on Wednesday, Bach said that the IOC must stay out of political disputes to preserve its power as a unifying force on the international stage.

"If politics decides who can take part in a competition, then sport and athletes become tools of politics," Bach stated. "It is then impossible for sport to transfer its uniting power."
