Ecclusive: DHS drafts plan to allow fraudsters
to keep citizenship
Posted by Ribicon 10/13/2021 11:41:44 PM Post Reply
The Homeland Security Department is circulating a draft proposal that would severely curtail its attempts to strip citizenship from people who were naturalized based on fraud. The Washington Times saw a draft of the memo, from Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to the heads of the three immigration agencies. The memo says people might not apply for citizenship because they worry about losing it in the future. “Naturalized citizens deserve finality and security in their rights as citizens,” the memo says. “Department policies should not cause a chilling effect or barriers for lawful permanent residents seeking to naturalize.” Denaturalization is a part of federal law.

For Kyrie Irving, it’s not about the vaccine. It’s about the vaccine mandates. And the firings. According to a report in The Athletic, the Brooklyn Nets star won’t abide by the NBA’s vaccine mandate to protest employer mandates to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or risk being fired. Citing “multiple sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s decision,” the Athletic reported that the star point guard has explained himself to close teammates and said he is not against vaccination per se. “To him, this is about a grander fight than the one on the court and Irving is challenging a perceived control of society and people’s livelihood,” the Athletic wrote.

Several news outlets (Bloomberg below) are noting the Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has submitted the worker vaccine rule to the White House for review prior to publishing as an ’emergency temporary standard’. While this may be seen as disappointing by many, the moment the rule hits the federal register, it will be subject to lawsuits before implementation. Until the DoL/OSHA rule hits the books, the mandate is nothing except a statement of intent.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has been working to change the Health Care Right of Conscience Act, which some have invoked in the fight against COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The 1998 Health Right of Conscience Act bans discrimination because of such persons’ refusal to receive or participate in any way in any particular form of health care services contrary to his or her conscience. Some have said the law allows people to avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine and evade Pritzker’s executive order mandating vaccination or regularly testing for health care workers, educators and other state employees.

The remarkable similarities between a recently leaked 2018 proposal from EcoHealth Alliance head Peter Daszak and the defining characteristics of COVID-19 raise new questions regarding the origins of the pandemic. The proposal, dated March 27, 2018, sets out the organization’s plan to create entirely new coronaviruses through the synthetic combination of preexisting virus backbones. It describes how those viruses were going to be made more virulent in humans by the insertion of a furin cleavage site, a feature that distinguishes COVID-19 from all other SARS-related coronaviruses. The plan also envisaged the creation of an aerosolized vaccine that could be used to immunize wild bat populations.

My friends are hopefully suggesting on social media that this will be the election that turns things around, where the full anger of the common folk at being bossed around by autocratic overlords finally manifests itself and we throw the bums out.Mind you, they were saying the same thing with the same hope about the California recall election. And I said at the time, weeks before the vote was tallied, there was no point in hoping that patriotic anger would outbalance the massive machinery at work behind the scenes: Your votes didn’t matter

Do a Better Job Selling’ Biden’s Radical Agenda

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), during her weekly press conference, lectured reporters, claiming they did not do a good enough job of “selling” President Joe Biden’s radical spending plan.Pelosi was pressed by a reporter, who pointed out a recent poll from CBS News showing that only ten percent of Americans can say they know a lot of specific items in the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, in which they have jammed as many far-left ideas as possible to make for a sweeping one-time bill passage.“Do you think you need to do a better job at messaging and going forward,

Biden Federal Vaccine Mandate Actually Exists

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made the surreal argument on Tuesday that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott are “putting politics ahead of public health” by protecting citizens’ fundamental freedom of choice on Covid-19 vaccines. In the course of her diatribe, however, Psaki admitted something that has been bubbling on the media backburners for some time: Biden’s vaccine mandate currently doesn’t even exist. Watch: [Video] “His requirements are promulgated by a federal law,” Psaki claimed. “So, when the President announced his vaccine mandates for businesses, that, of course, we’re waiting on OSHA regulations as far as the next step.”

Asked by an announcer to “help kick this thing off” at the NAPA Super DIRT Week Pro Stock 50 event at Oswego Speedway on Sunday, one young boy, who was asked along with another young boy and young girl, continued after the three intoned “Drivers, start your engines” by asserting, “Let’s Go, Brandon.” (Tweet/Video) (Snip)The “Let’s Go Brandon” meme was triggered on October 3 when NBC sports reporter Kelli Stavast was interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama after Brown scored his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series win. Stavast stated, as shown in a video, that the crowd was chanting “Let’s go, Brandon!” when in reality they
The One Jon Gruden Email We Can All Agree

Jon Gruden is no longer the coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. This comes after a trove of emails from a decade ago showed the Super Bowl-winning coach using coarse language. Anti-gay, misogynistic, and racially charged rhetoric was used in the emails. So, it was a classic problematic word salad that the media feasts upon. It gave a chance for the ‘woke’ to rail against the NFL, sports, and white people again. Yet, let’s be clear—the emails are bad but it’s minor league compared to other scandals and shenanigans that have hit the league. Gruden resigned last night. Move on—it’s over. This isn’t Watergate (via NYT):

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones stated that President Joe Biden is doing good things, but he made claims about furthering his agenda, “then he steps on a rake and then he slips on a banana peel and then he falls down the stairs with some marbles and now people are looking at him in a negative light.” And people aren’t seeing “strong Joe Biden leadership that I think people were expecting,” and “the honeymoon’s over.” Jones also said that “right now, the Democratic Party is looking over the edge of a cliff,” and if this time next year,

Donald Trump’s 2016 victory was a shock to much of the country, but Silicon Valley took it especially hard. The progressive bastion of San Francisco had turned tech companies from libertarian idealists into liberal crusaders. The industry as a whole felt complicit in Donald Trump’s rise and was intent on doing everything in its power to suppress his voice and those of his supporters.From the beginning, the tech overlords were plotting how to strike back.In one meeting, Google founder Sergey Brin suggested that “Jigsaw,” a project Google had developed to combat Islamic terror propaganda, could be used to shape the opinions of Trump voters.

Goes International

The “F Joe Biden” movement has become a national movement, showing up from college football games to protest marches, making it to concerts and onto live television.It’s even become so popular, it produced its own spin-off chant — Let’s go, Brandon — in part because of the refusal of an NBC reporter to acknowledge that the crowd in the stands were actually shouting “F**k Joe Biden.”When the chant broke out while Kelli Stavast was interviewing the winner of that day’s NASCAR race, Brandon Brown, Stavast claimed they were saying, “Let’s go, Brandon.” A meme was born, perfectly encapsulating not only the disgust with Joe Biden but with the fake media

The vote was structured in such a way that members voted on a rule governing floor debate on three separate measures, allowing politically vulnerable lawmakers some cover,
