Look at this "cute" child from Honduras that Biden "caught and released"


An illegal immigrant that posed as a minor. He was 23 when he came into the US illegally. Lied about being a minor. Was released.

"A 24-year-old Honduran immigrant who’s charged with murder in the brutal stabbing death of a Florida man had crossed the US border illegally months earlier while posing as an unaccompanied minor, an investigation by The Post found.

In keeping with President Biden’s border policy on unaccompanied minors crossing the US border, Ulloa (age 23) wasn’t turned away but instead placed in a shelter."

He apparently arrived in Florida on a "midnight Biden Flight"
This blood is on Biden's hands.

Ron DeSanits is having investigators find out how this thug ended up in Florida.

Aren't statistics fun, 98% of US businesess and 33% of workers not covered.

If you don't want to get vaccinated quit and work for a smaller company.

"Frequently Asked Questions About the Biden Administration’s Vaccine Mandate

Corporate America has entered the next phase of its effort to counter the spread of the coronavirus. Companies of 100 or more employees have until Jan. 4 to ensure all their workers are either fully vaccinated or submit to weekly testing and mandatory masking. The measure was announced by President Biden in September, and details were released on Nov. 4 by the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

OSHA’s rule will affect some 84 million private-sector workers across the country, including some 31 million who are believed to be unvaccinated."

@techy46 thought telling people what to do works?

@Namron Damron

It does when you have the authority amd knowledge to do it.

That's usually true in science related professions not social settings.

That's why I really like black and white software engineering not UI issues.

@techy46 in my experience, telling people what to do doesn't work no matter what discipline. Telling people what to do on makes the dictator feel good about doing the right thing.
A new poll has found that more Americans now oppose Black Lives Matter than support it for the first time in over three years.

Support for Black Lives Matter spiked following the police killing of George Floyd, but after months of violent rioting throughout the summer of 2020, it has consistently fallen.

A new survey by Civiqs reveals that 44 per cent of Americans oppose the far-left organization compared to 43 per cent who still support it.

Driving the turndown in sentiment towards the group is the views of Independents and Hispanic/Latino voters.

The deep state appears to be concerned that more Americans are learning the truth about the extremist group.

It was revealed that the Pentagon is working with a contractor to track web searches that it describes as indicators of “white supremacy,” citing the phrase “the truth about black lives matter” as one example.

So looting, murdering, vandalizing, harassing, etc. is not winning hearts and minds? Who would have guessed? And no riots since the mumble perv got "elected"? It was all a psy-op to get Trump out.
@PIRockford If we DARE to see it and dare to say it in our thought controlled sometimes called politically correct world we then can see REALITY. Black lives matter, THE RACE CARD is launched at anyone who disagrees with what you are saying. It is actually, for some a very effective charge. The race card. We are told that Obama was our first black president. How is that not racist from those who voted for him?
You are called a racist. Reality, you meet someone he is tall, short, skinny, fat, black, white, oriental he is young, old, looks to be poor, prosperous.
It scares me how effective Hillary Clinton was. Trump supporters are deplorable-xenophobic, racist. To hit all bases in her attempt to create and latch on to hate; she called Tulsi a Russian asset. See what we have allowed?
Where we are and how we got here. Dare to say all life matters out comes the race card and you may well be fired.
The Virginia grassroots group Fight For Schools reported on Thursday that it has 125 percent of the signatures it needs to oust the 4 remaining Loudoun County School Board members who are responsible for some of the district’s recent malfeasance.

Also, Virginia’s new Republican Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares announced at a press conference on Thursday his plans to investigate the sexual assault cover-up in Loudoun County Public Schools.

@PIRockford Good news. McAuliffe said that School Boards, not parents should determine curriculum.

Time for School boards to be composed of parents and not marxist administrators.

If parents are not allowed to be involved, then schools can teach whatever the hell they want to teach. Parental involvement is long overdue.

LMAO, we definitely take it seriously?

You couldn't pay me to go to Washington, DC.

"A Texas woman who boasted that she would not go to jail for her role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot because of her “blonde hair” and “white skin,” was sentenced to serve time in jail on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper sentenced Texas real estate agent Jenna Ryan to serve 60 days behind bars. Ryan pleaded guilty to a single count of parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building in August. She will also have to pay the standard $500 in restitution required in all January 6 misdemeanor plea deals, according to WUSA9."

@techy46 If she is one of those protesters who have been held for 10 months now in the DC Gulag, wouldn't that constitute time served?
techy46 profile picture

No clue, I haven't followed any of that charade.

They certainly made fools out of US Congress and themselves.
Henry Miles profile picture

Blonde and white, and people don't think that racism isn't also at play here.
On Wednesday, a federal judge ordered that a January 6th political prisoner be immediately transferred out of the DC Gulag after an unannounced US Marshals inspection of the facility found detainees were forced to live in “deplorable” conditions and were denied necessary medical care.

The defendant, Chris Worrell, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma while incarcerated and has been denied his cancer treatments for months. He will immediately be transferred to another facility outside of DC, where they will release him into home detention “as soon as possible” so he can receive much-needed chemotherapy for his worsening illness.

In his decision, Judge Royce Lamberth said the conditions at the facility were so terrible that they were “beyond belief” and added that the “court has ZERO confidence” in Pelosi’s Gulag to provide proper treatment and NOT retaliate against Worrell if he was allowed to remain in their custody.

Some of the horrifying conditions that were found in the inspection included: water being shut off for days, clogged toilets that would flood cells with sewage, and an inmate who developed an infection from being pepper-sprayed after not being allowed to wash the chemical off for days.

Water would be shut off as a form of punishment for detainees who ‘misbehave,’ often for several days at a time – taking away their ability to wash hands, flush the toilet, or even drink water.

Keep in mind, these people who are being subject to this kind of horrifying treatment are AMERICAN CITIZENS – it’s unthinkable.

Covid 19 has now killed more than 750,000 people in the United States.

Get vaccinated.
@Buyandhold 2012 The Italian Higher Institute of Health has drastically reduced the country’s official COVID death toll number by over 97% after changing the definition of a fatality to someone who died from COVID rather than with COVID.

Italian newspaper Il Tempo reports that the Institute has revised downward the number of people who have died from COVID rather than with COVID from 130,000 to under 4,000.

Of the of the 130,468 deaths registered as official COVID deaths since the start of the pandemic, only 3,783 are directly attributable to the virus alone.

All the other Italians who lost their lives had from between one and five pre-existing diseases. Of those aged over 67 who died, 7% had more than three co-morbidities, and 18% at least two.

According to the CDC, 750,000+ Americans have died with COVID. If we apply Italy’s new rule, the actual death count is only around 22,000 or so. That’s not even a mild flu season.

COVID-19 is a very picky killer, and we know exactly who its prey is: the old, the infirm, the malnourished, and the morbidly obese.

Protect the vulnerable, and leave the rest of us alone.

@Buyandhold 2012 Germany's new COVID cases hit an all-time high today. apnews.com/...

Please get vaccinated for COVID-19. Please get your booster shot if you are eligible.

@crademan "Germany's new COVID cases hit an all-time high today."

What happened is they just rolled out COVID booster shots last month (Sept)
-- and also shots for children age 12 to 17.

The shots are kicking in now.

New grand jury seated as Trump criminal probe continues.

In recent months, a pair of Trump Organization executives testified before the grand jury hearing evidence in the Manhattan case. Under New York law, grand jury witnesses are granted immunity and cannot be charged for conduct they testify about. One of the Trump executives granted immunity to testify before the grand jury is the company’s director of security, Matthew Calamari Jr. The other, senior vice president and controller, Jeffrey McConney, was first subpoenaed to testify in the spring and appeared before the panel again in September.

The grand jury that returned the Weisselberg and Trump Organization indictments was empaneled in the spring for a six-month term. The new grand jury will also meet for six months overlapping the start of Alvin Bragg’s tenure as district attorney. Bragg, a Democrat, won Tuesday’s election and will take over in January for Vance, who is retiring.

In an interview prior to his election, Bragg told The Associated Press his prior experience handling mortgage fraud, money laundering and other white-collar investigations made him feel “very equipped to follow the facts wherever they go” in the Trump criminal probe.
@Scootrd Calamari better keep his mouth shut or he's gonna be sleeping with the squids.
"Democrats spent years lying about “Russian collusion” when they were *actually* colluding with a Russian analyst.

Can’t make this stuff up." mobile.twitter.com/...

Anything Democrats accuse anybody else of doing it's safe to assume automatically that they're not only doing it themselves, but on a scale much larger than they accuse their opponents of.

In the 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s, these people would have been hung for treason. Today, we have to work to even get them to jail. The fake media will continue with the coverup.
@PIRockford “Today, we have to work to even get them to jail.”


Today, we have to work to keep them from putting us in jail.


Today, we have to work to keep them from letting felons out of jail.
@TMMD @PIRockford Out here, they'll revolving-door back out. So if you MUST be indicted, get indicted in Multnomah County. Piece of cake.

I am glad you keep bringing Trump and his Russian connections back to the front page.

Have we discussed DeathSantis's new idea to to create a fully-staffed statewide law enforcement office whose sole job would be to crack down on election crimes.

Having been one upped last week by Texas Gov. Abbott calling for book burnings, DeSantis responds with having an armed law enforcement political officer to inspect every ballot before being cast.

Talking tough, “I guarantee you this: The first person that gets caught, no one is going to want to do it again after that,” said DeSantis at a West Palm Beach event billed as a “press conference”.

@relospecialist So, you want loose election protection. You must be a dem.
@relospecialist I heard they caught a guy in Texas who voted twice. Dan Patrick had to pay out a reward.

Same thing could happen in Florida!
Buyandhold 2012 profile picture

I just hope deSantis can keep the dead people from voting.

I know the dead people think it's their civic duty to vote, especially in democratic districts, but the dead should be allowed to rest in peace.

Well this is going to be interesting,
HEADLINE: Trump DOJ lawyer Jeffrey Clark to testify before Jan. 6 panel Friday.


Clark proposed that the DOJ send a letter to state legislators in Georgia and other states suggesting that they delay certification of their election results and hold a press conference 'FALSELY' announcing that the department was investigating allegations of voter fraud.

In collusion with Trump and other in the administration, Clark claimed, Trump planned to fire then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and appoint him in their desperate half baked attempt to hold on to power.

@DigDeep wall to wall

You tell me. An illconcived plot of lies by Trump to turn the election results wasn't at least considered.

Who really thinks this way? Trump's desperation to hang on to power is just sad for the old man.

Greatly reduce energy waste amd improve cost of living.

It's very interesting to visit Phoenix once or twice a year.

I remember winter commuting in Denver and dreaming of leaving.

On 737 one Feb morning and last piece of ice fell off wing into Lake Mead.
“Mr. President, do you take some responsibility, and do you think Terry McAuliffe would have won if your agenda had passed before Election Day?” a reporter asked Wednesday.

“Well, I think it should have passed before Election Day,” Biden responded. “But I’m not sure that I would be able to have changed the number of very conservative folks who turned out in the red districts who were Trump voters, but maybe. Maybe.”

Biden said prior to Election Day that he was confident McAuliffe was going to win, and argued that his stalled agenda would not impact the outcome of the race.

“We’re gonna win,” Biden said Tuesday. “I think we’re gonna win in Virginia.”
