Report: Five Staff Advisers Abandon Kyrsten
Sinema for ‘Hanging’ Arizona ‘Constituents
Out to Dry’

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 10/21/2021 2:05:24 PM

Five staff advisers have abandoned Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for neglecting Arizona constituents over opposing President Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation proposal. “You have become one of the principal obstacles to progress, answering to big donors rather than your own people,” the group of advisers publicly wrote to Sinema in the New York Times. “We shouldn’t have to buy representation from you, and your failure to stand by your people and see their urgent needs is alarming,” they added. The group is apparently angered by Sinema’s opposition to nuking the filibuster, raising taxes, and enacting massive welfare subsidies not seen since the 1960s

". . . staff advisers . . ."? Hmm. From the Mercury News: Members of Sinema’s veterans advisory council are voluntary positions and not paid members of her staff. Whoop-de-freakin-do.

Well, I'll give them credit. Don't agree with the boss, then you should quit. But hey, if I'm the boss and I say "X" your job is to support my decision to say "X" or quit. It's not to mope around and try to make "Y" happen. Well, maybe I'm wrong. Isn't that how the Washington Swamp Deep State operates (during a Republican administration)?

The power dynamics of political duplicity complicate the process and provide cover for cynical deal-making. I wonder how Sinema was persuaded to represent the majority in her state, instead of the pressure of her party.

Apparently their advice was not very good. They are advisors, not the policy makers. Sinema can choose to heed their advice or disregard it. She apparently had no use for their liberal views and whining.

Looks like her staff is full of full-blown Bolsheviks. Hire someone else that works for you and not the Communist Party. It sounds to me like she is actually representing her constituents better than most, who simply rubber stamp everything that comes across the desk pushes by the commies. A senator with an actual functioning brain is a rare commodity.

I wonder how she picked those advisors. Since she is a junior democratic senator, I am willing to bet her mentors in the democratic party were assigned to her. Damocrats to the core and they didn''t like how she didn't hew the Damocrat viewpoint. To hell with them and Senator Sinema be strong.

Many of us taxpaying, Arizona constituents have amped up communication to Sinema, supporting her strength opposing the marxist cabal's $3.5 trillion reconciliation insanity. This supportive communication increased as the soros funded harassment came to light. She may have lost those 5 losers, but she has gained positive attention from legitimate voters who otherwise would have looked the other way. FJB

Somehow, someone made the decision to let Joe Biden out and to go to a CNN town hall. I’m not sure who thought this was a good idea. But even within the friendly confines of CNN, it was a complete train wreck — even by Biden standards. Naturally, most of the questions from folks in the audience were Democrats or softball questions. But there were some highlights and it was disastrous. Let’s start with the creepiness and the incoherence. Here’s Joe Biden claiming that top corporations “don’t pay a cent” in taxes with that creepy stage whisper voice.

Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a set in New Mexico on Thursday, accidentally killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza. The incident occurred on the set of “Rust,” an independent feature that was filming at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, a popular production location south of Santa Fe. Hutchins, 42, was transported by helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she died. Souza, 48, was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe, where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries, according to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office.

We’ve reached the part of the program where some airline CEOs are finding it is better to use honey than vinegar to encourage their employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. American Airlines is following the lead of Southwest Airlines and softening its language as deadlines loom and business disruptions are on the horizon. American CEO Doug Parker says that for those employees who do not get vaccinated or claim a medical or religious exemption, the airline will “continue to work with” them. There is no doubt there is a laser focus on the bottom line with the airline CEOs. Air travel is picking up at a good clip
Joe Manchin Teaches Bernie Sanders a Valuable

Negotiations continued today over the reconciliation bill. While its original price tag was somewhere around $3.5 trillion, that’s now clearly not going to happen, thanks to opposition from Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Things are moving closer and closer to Manchin’s $1.5 trillion red-line, with even Joe Biden now admitting the bill will be nowhere near what the progressive wing wanted. Still, the delusion is strong with Bernie Sanders, and he was taught a valuable lesson during a combative meeting today. Namely, that when you have no leverage, you have no say. This, per Axios. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) squabbled

After years of silence, we finally started to get news regarding John Durham’s probe into the Trump-Russia investigation. As RedState reported, Michael Sussmann, one of the shadowy lawyers at the center of the false Alfa Bank story targeting the Donald Trump campaign, was indicted. Then something happened last week that raised eyebrows. The FBI raided the residence of Oleg Deripaska. While the left tried to spin it as another move against Paul Manafort, others suspected it had something to do with the Durham investigation. That theory was bolstered today after it was revealed that the scope of Durham’s investigation is reaching much farther than originally thought.

Two new polls should increase Democrats’ 2022 worries. Republicans are motivated, as demonstrated by the Virginia governor’s race. Rather than an easy win for Democrat Terry McAuliffe, it looks like it will be a slug-out with Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin to the bitter end. If Youngkin wins or even comes close, it has enormous implications for Democrats going into 2022. Americans’ perception of Joe Biden as weak or ineffective won’t help. According to Rasmussen, most Americans are not confident in Joe Biden’s ability to do the job of president. When likely voters are asked, “How confident are you that Joe Biden is physically and mentally up to the job

An internal study published by Twitter on its algorithms indicated that the platform actually amplifies right-of-center voices over left-leaning ones. The reality, however, is more complicated. Rumman Chowdhury, the head of Twitter's machine learning, ethics, transparency and accountability (META) team, told Protocol that the study only showed results based on bias in amplification–not what caused it. The content could be amplified for any reason. In short, the study was unable to determine whether Twitter’s home feed algorithms are biased towards conservative content. Interestingly, Twitter did not specify which outlets or politicians are considered “right-wing” by the platform. "We can see that it is happening. We are not entirely sure why it is happening.

Perhaps DC Comics’ woke agenda will be its own kryptonite. One can only hope. In the latest chapter of the comic book company’s Marxist rehabilitation of Superman, a gentleman who actually works on the comic book illustrations for the Man of Steel is quitting the company. He can’t take the woke BS anymore, in his own words saying the company is “ruining these characters.” Well, that’s an understatement. Only in the last couple weeks has the full weight of woke propaganda crushed America’s most beloved superhero. They made his son gay, they made the character’s next greatest villain climate change and now they’re dropping

Washington — The House voted Thursday to hold Steve Bannon, a longtime ally and aide to former President Donald Trump, in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena from the committee investigating the violent Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. In a rare show of bipartisanship on the House floor, the committee’s Democratic chairman, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, led the floor debate along with Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, one of two Republicans on the panel. Still, the vote was 229-202 with most GOP lawmakers voting “no,” despite the potential consequences for Congress if witnesses are allowed to ignore its demands. The House vote sends the matter to the U.S. attorney’s office

The country's largest school board association collaborated with the Biden White House before sending a controversial letter calling on the FBI to investigate parents as potential domestic terrorists, according to previously unreported emails. The emails, obtained by Parents Defending Education through public records requests and reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, reveal that the National School Board Association's president and CEO sent the letter to Biden on Sept. 29 without approval from the organization's board. The letter said that the acts of some parents at school board meetings across the country could be considered "a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes." The emails also show

Earlier this week, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams was stumping for Terry McCullough in Virginia. Once again, she was confident she should be the governor of Georgia and would have been if not for voter suppression. Then Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer brought S. 2747, also known as the Freedom to Vote Act, up for a cloture vote. Republicans filibustered the bill, unanimously voting against it.

A movie prop masters union has told members it was a live round and not a blank that Alec Baldwin fired at a female cinematographer on Thursday in New Mexico, killing her and wounding the movie's director in a tragic on-set accident. Halyna Hutchins, 42, died shortly after being shot by Baldwin around 1.50pm Thursday at Bonanza Creek Ranch, near the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico, where they were filming the movie Rust. Joel Souza, 48, the film's director, was also hurt and spent several hours in hospital, but was released later the same evening. Police have disclosed few details about the shooting, saying only that

Preliminarily, it is tragic that 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins, a rising cinematographer in Hollywood, died yesterday on the set of Rust, a movie being filmed in Santa Fe, New Mexico. My thoughts are with the loved ones she left behind. Having said that, I cannot escape a feeling that karma had a hand in this one because the finger on the trigger of the gun that killed Hutchins belonged to Alec Baldwin, a hysterical leftist who is fanatically opposed to the Second Amendment. To give a sense of Baldwin’s hostility to gun rights, in 2018, the smug and constitutionally illiterate Baldwin had some harsh words for Dana Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman

First things first. National Review Editor Rich Lowry is not a “die-hard” Trump fan. We’ll offer several examples later in the article — but let’s first get to the business at hand. As Lowry sees it, it’s a fool’s game to overestimate Trump’s dominance of the Republican Party this far in advance of the 2024 election. Lowry writes, in an op-ed posted by The New York Post on Friday, that Republican politicians who think the Republican Party belongs to Trump can be forgiven, given that he not only survived two impeachments and the January 6 attack against the U.S. Capitol; he has since continued to thrive.

Mrs. Biden is a college teacher. “The White House has a lot of bedrooms,” Mr. Biden replied with a smile. “She went like this,” he told host Anderson Cooper before making a pointing gesture. “Down the hall,” the first lady then said, according to Mr. Biden.

The study also found that the booster shot was found to be safe with no safety concerns or severe adverse events reported.

China carried out a second test of what is believed to be a hypersonic orbital missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead earlier this year, intelligence sources have claimed. The new test is believed to have taken place on August 13 and involved a similar 'hypersonic glide vehicle' to one launched into space on board a Long March rocket back in July, which was first reported earlier this week. Beijing has acknowledged one of the tests, claiming it launched a 'peaceful' civilian spacecraft. But analysts believe the craft can actually be tipped with a nuclear warhead which would be able to evade missile defences. Even government scientists are struggling
