Finally. It’s over.

BIDEN/HARRIS: I’m posting the following clips for those of you who haven’t managed to poke yourself in the eye with a fork yet today.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/whitehousebrief/videos/393454038747113 [6:42] (or not … I couldn’t take more than 2 min) to hear Biden thank everyone, but Trump, for the great effort to get the vaccination effort to where it is. But, of course, any shortfalls are all entirely the fault of Lazy Evil Orange Man. Meanwhile, the Politico and New York Post links below remind us what a mess then-VP Biden made when he was put in charge of the swine flu epidemic.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/whitehousebrief/videos/218575866481264 [3:08] (or not … I vote not) to see Kamala get vaccinated and tell everyone one else to do so too. In October, she said, “If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it, absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us we should take it, I’m not taking it.”

CLICK https://rumble.com/vca0uf-msnbc-contributor-rages-over-president-trumps-operation-warp-speed.html [2:01] (or not) to hear an MSNBC “news” anchor slam Trump, then pander to Biden. Same ol’, same ol’.

I know we’re supposed to “love the sinner, hate the sin.” But I confess to finding it nearly impossible to see anything but the sin in these vile people. Clearly, we can only do it with God’s grace, something for which I hope we all pray for daily.

CALIFORNIA: If it weren’t for California, our nationwide numbers would be going down.

Democrat (we trust the science) Gov. Newsom says he wants the lockdown to continue for at least three more weeks.

I wonder how many signatures the Recall Newsom effort has so far. Two weeks ago, they were more than half way to the 1.5 million signatures needed to get on the ballot.

CHINA: A Chinese court has sentenced a citizen journalist to four years in prison for her reports on COVID-19 in Wuhan. She was convicted on charges of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.

I’m pretty sure that’s 1984 Newspeak for “fact checked for lacking context.”

CULTURAL APPROPRIATION: Yet another Democrat has been outed as a fake minority. After a near-decade-long grift in pretending to be uninterested in fame while leveraging her marriage to a celebrity to get famous herself, Alec Baldwin’s current wife has admitted she is not actually an immigrant from Spain. She’s a white girl from Massachusetts.

DOJ vs. ZOOM: CLICK https://rumble.com/vc9gpd-doj-investigating-zoom-over-allegedly-sharing-u.s.-user-data-with-the-chine.html [3:40] to hear some scary news about China’s encroachment into our national sovereignty.

Why am I shocked to learn that Zoom’s CEO is Chinese? ::smh:: If Cho Biden becomes POTUS, the United States of America is done. Finished. How do you say “kaput” in Mandarin?

EDUCATION: If you’re educated, you recognize that ANTIFA is not fighting fascism.

GALLUP: Tell us again how Joe Biden somehow won millions more legal votes than Trump OR Obama …

GEORGIA: In a move stinking of zero integrity, a federal judge has blocked two Georgia counties from purging ineligible voters from their rolls in the run-up to the January Senate runoff election.

The judge, Leslie Abrams Gardner, is sister to spurned Georgia gubernatorial candidate and Democrat loudmouth Stacey Abrams. Gardner ignored calls to recuse herself from the case.

As a result of her vile abuse of power, 4,150 outdated voter registrations will be accepted as valid in the runoff election, despite the individuals having submitted change of address documentation with the Postal Service.

MARK LEVIN: Saying what we’re all thinking … “The only involvement Biden has had with these vaccines is to receive his dose before the rest of us. His press missives are cheap and pathetic, attention-seeking self-promotion about how he will nationalize industries to speed up production (actually, that would cause enormous dislocation and slowdowns); how he will speed up the process to ensure all Americans are vaccinated soon (this, from the guy who spent months insisting we were moving too fast). …

The fact is, President Trump made all of this possible, he has saved millions of lives in the U.S. and worldwide when this is said and done; and when it counted, Biden was wearing a mask, hiding in his basement, shooting spitballs at the president, and looking and sounding stupid all the time. That’s who the test-cheating, plagiarizing, lying, low-IQ, self-promoting Joe Biden is and will always be.”

MICHIGAN: [25:54] – An interview with one of the forensic analysts who examined the election machines in Antrim County, Michigan. The audit found that one of the servers was reporting tabulation results to CHINA. It also found evidence that ballots had been altered.

MILITARY: CLICK https://twitter.com/OutFrontCNN/status/1343732538230104066 [4:13] (or not … I quit after Vindman got introduced GAG) to hear CNN whine about how Orange Man Bad is trying to deny Our Bravo Men and Women their PAYCHECKS and drag old Alex the Liar Vindman out of obscurity to whine about how the military didn’t AFFIRM HIS FEELINGS after his traitorous testimony. Tweet comments were along the lines of “POS.“ I screen grabbed the kindest of them.

NASHVILLE: [12:51] – Body cam footage from police officer Michael Sipos, who was at the scene on the day of the explosion in the city that involved an RV. The explosion is at 3:54.

At the link is speculation with evidence suggesting the RV was not the source (or at least main source) of the blast, but rather a cover for explosives set inside the AT&T building itself.

It seems clear the AT&T data center was the target of this attack. It seems whoever attacked the data center WANTED to disrupt communications in the US. They also WANTED to do something to the NSA telephone recording and data collection abilities.

NEW YORK POST: There goes another news source I could trust – First, Rupert Murdoch sold his entertainment empire to politically correct Disney, which kowtows to Red China. Then, he turned the Wall Street Journal against the principles of Vermont C. Royster and his successor as editor, Robert Bartley. Then, he had Fox News capitulate.

Today, he surrendered his final voice of conservatism, the New York Post. As America fights to stop the steal of the 2020 presidential election, Murdoch ordered his Post to declare in an editorial, “Give it up, Mr. President — for your sake and the nation’s.” His front page featured the president with the all caps headline: STOP THE INSANITY.

TIKI BARS: CLICK https://rumble.com/vca109-mark-steyn-lampoons-bonkers-new-york-times-story-upset-about-tiki-bars.html [2:33] to hear Mark Steyn lampoon the New York Slime.

Our Lady of Akita

VIDEO: [5:18] – In 1973, the Blessed Virgin Mary spoke to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa, a deaf convert from Buddhism, at her convent in Akita, Japan. As with all genuine Marian apparitions, Our Lady’s message was to make reparation for sin through prayer, penance and sacrifice. The statue was reported to have shed tears for 101 occasions which was witnessed by thousands of people. Sr. Agnes’ deafness was cured. She also received a stigmata in her hand and the same wound was later found in the hand of the wooden statue of our Lady in the convent.

VIDEO [1:18:32] – This May 2020 discussion is long, but very good and very well worth your time. He covers the material below, but goes into a lot of detail about how the Roman Catholic Church approaches investigations into events like this. If you’re not familiar with that process and wonder where Catholics get off believing Mary has appeared and given messages, I encourage you to listen.

After two investigations, Sr. Agnes’ bishop was still unsure if the events were miracles from God or natural/paranormal events. He was acquainted with Sr. Agnes and did not believe the events were due to mental illness or demonic influences. He said he needed to see some miracles before he could declare Our Lady of Akita worthy of veneration. Sr. Agnes’ total healing from deafness was one of these.

Teresa Chun Sun Ho was comatose and dying when she received a vision of Our Lady of Akita. Then, she woke up, completely cured. Even untrained eyes can see the astonishing difference in her brain x-rays.

In 1984, Bishop John Shojiro Ito of Niigata, Japan, in consultation with the Holy See, wrote a pastoral letter in which he recognized as being authentically of the Mother of God.

In 1988, the Vatican’s Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith approved the Akita events as “reliable and worthy of belief.” This man was then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger who became Pope Benedict XVI in 2005.

Sr. Agnes received three messages from Our Lady. The first, on June 6, 1973, was a call for prayer and sacrifice for the glory of the Father and salvation of souls. The second, on August 3, 1973, was for prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices to soften the Father’s anger.

The third message on October 13, 1973, the 100th anniversary of the final vision and Miracle of the Sun at Fatima was as follows:

As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.

The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, and bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their Confreres. The Church and altars will be vandalized. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

The demon will rage especially against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will no longer be pardon for them.”

In the Jimmy Akin video, he makes a case for his belief that the events of the third message (and Fatima) occurred in the second half of the 20th century and that the “terrible punishment” (nuclear war?) was averted by our prayers.

ART: The main difference between this and the Vatican Nativity is that this is very successful at being a tongue-in-cheek meme while the Vatican Nativity is a total failure at being an uplifting and inspirational piece of major religious art.

CAPITALISM: Newly elected Democratic Congressman Jamaal Bowman said in an interview with The Root, “I believe our current system of capitalism is slavery by another name.”

COVID-19: CLICK https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/coronavirus-death-certificates-minnesota-inflated [17:25] to watch the video State Rep. Mary Franson and state Sen. Scott Jensen (M.D.) made about the false inflation of coronavirus deaths.

Their team reviewed 2,800 “death certificate data points” and found that about 800 of them did not have the virus as the underlying cause of death.

I have other examples where COVID isn’t the underlying cause of death, where we have a fall. Another example is we have a freshwater drowning. We have dementia. We have a stroke and multiorgan failure,” Franson said in the video.

She added that in one case, a person who was ejected from a car was “counted as a COVID death” because the virus was in his system.

GUNS: After taking a breather in the early years of the Donald Trump presidency, gun sales set a record this year. And it was marked by a sharp rise in first time gun buyers. There are now five million new gun owners, likely the largest surge in gun ownership in U.S. history.

ICE: The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency deported more than 185,000 illegal aliens in Fiscal Year 2020 including more than 4,200 gang members.

I expect they’ll all turn around and come back if Biden gets installed.

MASSACHUSETTS: Gov. Charlie Baker is a pro-abortion Republican, but some things go too far even for him. He just vetoed a radical pro-abortion bill that sought to allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason right up to birth, end parental consent for young girls seeking abortions, weaken the state’s anti-infanticide law, and allow non-doctors to abort unborn babies.

MCS: Multiple Chemical Sensitivities is a very real and often devastating disease. I know. I’ve had it for decades. Everything in the graphic falls under “Story of My Life.” I recently had to go to Motor Vehicles to get a photo ID non-driver’s license. The door monitor wanted Dearest to sit in the car, but I said, “I’m disabled. I need him.”

Since I can walk and talk BEFORE I get exposed to fragrances and other nasties that the rest of you barely notice, he rolled his eyes. I told him, “It’s an autoimmune disease. It doesn’t show.” I didn’t notice him on our way out, but I was kinda hoping he noticed me, cuz I was no longer walking or talking.

And I really had needed my main man, not just to get me out of the building and back to the car, but to finish up the transaction for me. I got trashed so fast that I couldn’t swipe my credit card or punch in my PIN or gather up all the paperwork and put my coat back on.

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: During the Sunday 11 am news hour, Fox featured the Naville press conference featuring the heroic police officers who evacuated people ahead of the Christmas bombing.

CNN featured five of their reporters bitching about how badly Trump has treated them.

NASHVILLE: The Nashville bomber has been identified as Anthony Quinn Warner. His DNA has been found at the site. A neighbor said, “If he did have any political beliefs he kept, that was something he kept to himself.”

Authorities say they don’t know what motivated him, but that his attempts to clear the area of people beforehand suggest his target may have been the AT&T building.

PORKULUS: On Sunday night, President Trump signed a $2.3 trillion federal spending and COVID relief bill, averting a government shutdown and ensuring millions of Americans continue to get unemployment benefits.

Despite his misgivings about wasteful spending and low stimulus payments in the bill, Trump said he signed the legislation because “I have an obligation to protect the people of our country“ from further economic devastation. He said, however, “more money is coming” as Congress votes this week on larger checks.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/Roxanne.Bloomer.Manbeck/posts/10224773309138981 [8:06] to hear Dan Bongino talk about it.

RESIST: From Steven Straub at The Federalist Papers – “If you think for one minute we Trump supporters are going to forget what has happened over the past five years you have to be completely out of your mind.

“For the last five years those of us who have supported President Trump have been, at various times, called deplorables, chumps, racists, white supremacists, Russian stooges, misogynists, homophobes, Islamaphobes, anti-Semites and the list goes on, and on.

“We have heard the media lie through their teeth about President Trump, his administration and Trump supporters day after day, night after night for the past five years.

“We have watched for years as our President was first called a racist, a misogynist, a white supremacist, a Russian plant and then back to white supremacist again. We then watched as our President was impeached for the most bogus reason possible, and even worse, for what Joe Biden and his son are actually guilty of.

“If those things were not bad enough, many of us have been literally physically attacked just for wearing a MAGA hat, or showing our support for the President.

“So if those celebrating what they believe is a Biden victory think we are now going to forget about what has happened over the past 5 years they are sadly mistaken.

“We are going to fight back with everything we have. The silent majority is going to be silent no longer.”

GRAMMY NOTES: Dearest was yelling about the dog’s parka, which had apparently grown legs and moved to some other county. I got sick of his drama and told him to pray about it. Next thing … “Oh wow! It’s right here next to our parkas.” God give me patience!

BLUE BLOODS: It’s our favorite show – Donnie Wahlberg who plays Danny tweeted, “I found out that my TV Dad #TomSelleck has generously accepted the #2020TipChallenge at Elios Upper East Side! Love ya dad. I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it. To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU.”

COVID-19: The Daily Mail reported, “Hospitals in Southern California are so overrun by COVID-19 cases that doctors are running low on supplies of oxygen, infected patients are forced to wait eight hours in ambulances before they can enter an emergency room, and intensive care units are fully booked with no more beds available.

Under Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, California has imposed the most draconian restrictions on American life since the days of King George III. He has closed churches and destroyed thousands of businesses. And it all failed.

Meanwhile, in places that never closed (like Sweden) or that opened up early (like Florida and Texas), life is mostly back to normal. Don Surber reminds us,

We fought an American revolution amid a smallpox epidemic that killed one-third of those infected. The story of Valley Forge was the American army holing up for the winter to acquire herd immunity. There were no alternatives.

The cost was very high. The death toll was enormous. Indeed, for every soldier killed in battle, 3 died from disease. But they soldiered on.

This virus kills 1 in 1,000 people infected.

It is well past time to soldier on, America.”

CLIMATE HUSTLE: Just what we needed right before Christmas … a story about a church that is NOT teaching Scripture.

I recently watched Climate Hustle 1 and 2. If you only want to watch one, I think 2 is better. This infiltration of the churches is discussed in 2.

As a Catholic, I was and am thoroughly dismayed that Pope Francis signed on to it. I heard that, while he was working on his encyclical, so-called “skeptics/deniers” attempted to see him. He refused.

IMO, his refusal to even LISTEN to the opposition eliminated his authority to tell me what’s true and I don’t care how many Cardinals stuck a crown his head.

COMMON SENSE: Dec 23, 2020 video by Rudy Giuliani [37:45] – He talks about the meaning of Christmas to Christians, to the United States, and to the current fight against election fraud.

He also talks about how NONE of the courts have look at any of the evidence of listened to a single witness. They’re just tossing cases on bs procedural grounds.

So far as I can see, corrupt and/or frightened judges have decided that NOBODY has “standing” to object to this election! Not the candidate who was cheated. Not the voters who were cheated. Not the states whose majority in the Senate is at risk.

FAUCI: What a fraud! – Dr. Fauci has been gradually moving the goal post about how many Americans would need to be vaccinated before we achieve herd immunity. First, he said 60-70 percent. Then, he said 70-75 percent. Then, it went up to 75 to 80-plus percent. And most recently, he said it had to be “close to 90 percent.”

Dr. Fauci blithely explained that polling, rather than science, informed his public pronouncements. “When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent. Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85. … We really don’t know what the real number is.”

FLEEING CALIFORNIA: The Daily Wire, the conservative media outlet founded by Ben Shapiro, Jeremy Boreing, and Caleb Robinson, announced plans to move its headquarters from Los Angeles to Nashville.

HOPE: The Catholic Catechism says that Hope is one of the Theological Virtues which “are infused by God into the souls of the faithful to make them capable of acting as his children and of meriting eternal life.

I believe that God always answers prayer and that while He may say “No” or “Not yet” to prayers for worldly gifts, he always answers “Yes” when asked for an increase in any virtue. Of course, our cooperation in His graces will magnify their action in us, just like practicing and studying magnify the action of the teachers who share their knowledge with us.

ISRAEL: Researchers from Tel Aviv University have proven that it can be killed in half a minute using LED-UV lights emitting a specific range of wavelengths.

Also, an Israeli fabric maker has developed an anti-viral mask coated in zinc oxide nanoparticles that destroy bacteria, fungi and viruses. Testing has shown that the Wuhan coronavirus is neutralized within 30 minutes and that the masks retain their protective properties throughout 55 wash cycles.

Sadly, customer reviews are not over the top, with complaints about mask sizes running small with women needing the men’s size, which means my big-faced hubby couldn’t wear one at all. Also, some complaints about poorly made masks falling apart and metal nose strips poking through.

They are also really expensive. You can order them from https://sonoviatech.com/product/large-sonomask-antiviral-reusable-adjustable-with-nose-wire/ for $45 each or go to Amazon where Sonovia is selling the same thing for $69 to which you can apply a $24 coupon that brings the price down to $45. Such a deal!

If I could get the material for DIY, I’d consider it, because Dearest goes out a lot and I’d prefer he and I didn’t get the plague.

LEFT vs. RIGHT: John Rivers writes, “Look, I’m not a political guy. Republican, Democrat, what’s the difference? On the one hand, you got the Republicans, who are mostly solid family men and loving mothers who work together to provide for their children and on the other hand, you got the Democrats, who are mostly communists and child molesters but, hey, who am I to judge?

MICHIGAN: Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) is pursuing legal sanctions against lawyers who questioned the outcome of the November election.

Nessel, who has defended Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D), said this week she is going to go after the attorneys who filed lawsuits alleging that some people voted illegally and that votes were also manipulated by Dominion Voting Systems.

MILITARY: Previously Navy Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt served as the Lincoln’s executive officer — another first for a woman — from 2016-2019. After leaving the Lincoln, Bauernschmidt served as the commanding officer of the amphibious transport dock USS San Diego, a command she left in October.

I am incredibly honored and humbled to be selected,” Bauernschmidt said in a statement. “I love leading sailors and I take that responsibility extremely seriously.”

NASHVILLE EXPLOSION: 12/25th presser [10:43] – Dawn on the second holiest day of the year. Authorities believe it was intentional. Pure evil. AND a testament to God’s glory that so far, only three people are known to have been injured. Police have found what they believe to be human remains in the vicinity, so that may change.

Interview with a survivor @ https://rumble.com/vc6sv5-nashville-explosion-the-most-incredible-explosion-ever.html [3:52]

On Saturday, the FBI’s Memphis SAC said, “There are a number of individuals that we’re looking at,” he added. “So, at this point, we’re not prepared to identify any single individual.” For the full 12/26 press briefing, CLICK https://www.theepochtimes.com/live-news-conference-on-investigation-of-nashville-vehicle-explosion_3633219.html.

NEW YORK: I’ve always thought of our congressman, Tom Reed, as one of the good guys. He was one of the first to formally support Trump’s candidacy, but it looks like he has sold out to the corruptocrats.

After siding with the corrupt Democrats on voter fraud, he’s now very upset with TRUMP for “blindsiding the GOP” by not supporting the horrible “covid relief” bill that would send borrowed money we can’t afford to failing blue states and FOREIGN NATIONS! I’m so disgusted.

OPERATION LEGEND: Worth watching [7:43] – Operation Legend, launched in July of this year, deployed agents from various federal agencies to assist local law enforcement in fighting violent crime.

The effort was named for LeGend Taliferro, a four-year-old who was killed by gunfire while sleeping in his bed in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Department of Justice says Operation Legend has resulted in over 6,000 arrests, removing violent criminals, domestic abusers, carjackers and drug traffickers from nine cities which were experiencing stubbornly high crime and took illegal firearms, illegal narcotics and illicit monies off the streets.

Of those 6,000 arrested, 1,500 have been charged with federal offenses, and 500 were charged with homicide.

PORKULUS: I can’t STAND how far in debt we are, but they keep voting for more and more! IMO, if a person is in debt, then any extra money they have belongs to their creditors. Debtors should do their charity by volunteering time and/or giving away stuff they don’t need anymore. But until those debts are cleared, they’ve got no right to donate money to charities, because it isn’t THEIRS. So why are we doing it as a nation?!

SEX EDUCATION: CLICK https://fb.watch/2DHP5grLKz/ [6:04] to see Glenn Beck’s update on Amy, the brave teacher in Oklahoma, who wrote a personal letter to nearly 90 parents of students in her class. She wanted to warn them about upcoming curriculum she felt could be dangerous to the students — lessons that were not about sex education, but about sex indoctrination. It’s inspiring, so don’t skip it!

SUCKY NEWS: I’m thinking it would be better for all of us to spend the time in prayer instead of reading and sharing all the details of how our once great nation is circling the drain.

TEXAS: Notice anything strange about these?

VICTORY: On Wednesday, New York State Supreme Court Judge Paul B. Wojtaszek has ruled that the state’s 25% capacity limit on businesses is unconstitutional. Video [2:04] report @ link below.

Senior Advisor to Governor Cuomo Rich Azzopardi said the lawsuit was based on “crackpot logic.”

GRAMMY NEWS: We did a lot of zooming for Christmas. It was SO fun to watch the grands open up our gifts in real time!

ABORTION: LONG before there was more than one Christian church, it was defined doctrine that Jesus was fully human and fully divine from the moment of conception. He was like us in all things but sin. Ergo, we are all fully human from the first moment of conception. Abortion is murder.

BIDEN: Joe Biden, who had difficulty having anyone come to any of his events, is reportedly very upset that Twitter is wiping out all of Trump’s followers before turning over the @POTUS (33 million Trump followers) and @WhiteHouse (26 million Trump followers). Many Trump followers said it didn’t much matter, since they planned to unfollow anyway.

COVID-19: The CDC says that, as of Wednesday afternoon, 1,008,025 people in the U.S. have received a COVID-19 vaccination. More than 9.4 million doses have been shipped across the country.

The FDA investigating “about five” severe anaphylactic allergic reactions to the Pfizer vaccine. The reactions may have been triggered by  polyethylene glycol (PEG), a compound in both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD chairman and chief legal counsel, said: “As we told the FDA in September, studies show that one in seven Americans may unknowingly be at risk of experiencing an allergic reaction to PEG.”

“At the very least, everyone should be screened for anti-PEG antibodies before getting the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines,” Kennedy said. “It is unconscionable that instead, the FDA and CDC are encouraging people to go ahead and risk a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction and just assume that someone will be on hand to save them.”

GRAMMY NOTES: Bunny’s viola teacher has been having them pluck and learn the basics. She has been feeling a little lackluster about her lessons lately. Here was her reaction when her teacher told the kids to get out their bows. “YES!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!”

ARIZONA: On Dec. 15, Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Eddie Farnsworth, both Republicans, issued subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors seeking ballot tabulation equipment and voting records from county election officials.

In response, the board voted against complying and filed a lawsuit to determine whether it is obligated to produce the materials sought … which begs the question, “What do they have to hide?”

On Dec. 21, Fann and Farnsworth filed a lawsuit asking the Maricopa County Superior Court to enforce the subpoenas.

The senators plan to order a full forensic audit of tabulation devices and other voting equipment in Maricopa County and use the results to determine whether to certify or reject the presidential electors for Joe Biden.

COVID-19: A study involving COVID-19 patients at a hospital in Spain discovered 80% of them were deficient in Vitamin D. There are many studies that show how beneficial vitamin D is for the immune system. Now they need to do zinc.

DEFENSE BILL: President Trump has vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – Besides NOT depriving social media companies of their Section 230 protection, “the Act fails to include critical national security measures, includes provisions that fail to respect our veterans and our military’s history, and contradicts efforts by my Administration to put America first in our national security and foreign policy actions. It is a ‘gift’ to China and Russia.”

While it’s absolutely maddening that this woman hasn’t been interrogated, arrested, or charged, it’s also understandable. The Epoch Times article linked below tells how viciously the Leftist Bullies went after one guy who tried to stand up and do the right thing.

There are millions more of us than there are of them! Pray and ask God to show you what you personally can do to stand WITH these people.

Warnock is the pro-abortion pastor running for U.S. Senate. He is reportedly a dangerous Marxist who actually celebrated Fidel Castro and welcomed him to his church.

LOSER: Funny how when it happened on Obama’s watch, Biden blamed Trump.

PARENTAL RIGHTS: Last month, the District of Columbia passed B23-017, a bill that allows children to be vaccinated without the knowledge or consent of their parents. Undermining the family is all part of Satan’s plan.

PORKULUS: President Trump wants larger direct payments to Americans and the removal of “wasteful and unnecessary” foreign aid items.

“Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who need it,” Trump said in the video recorded at the White House. “It wasn’t their fault. It was China’s fault. Not their fault.”

EMAIL President Trump (link below) and tell him to VETO PORKULUS!

These six senators voted again the bill: Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Rick Scott of Florida, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas.

WAIT, WUT? … Voters have proven to be a lot smarter than all the Democrats, Jerknalists, and Left Wing Haters. They told us for years and with great confidence that Donald J. Trump hates immigrants. (Never mind that he’s married to one!)

Given that immigrants have allegedly been reliably blue, one might think this is another sign of just how fraudulent Biden’s “win” is.

ChiComs, WHO, and Vaccinations

The ChiCom regime has decided that 50 million Chinese citizens MUST be vaccinated with the untested, unapproved, Chinese COVID-19 vaccination.

Remember how the World Health Organization (WHO) totally lied to us about COVID-19 because the Chinese kinda sorta owns them? Well, they’re up to it again.

Before sometime in the distant past … like last week … the WHO’s accurate definition of herd immunity was this: “Herd immunity is the indirect protection from an infectious disease that happens when a population is immune either through vaccination or immunity developed through previous infection. This means that even people who haven’t been infected, or in whom an infection hasn’t triggered an immune response, they are protected because people around them who are immune can act as buffers between them and an infected person.

Now, WHO defines “herd immunity” to mean the “vast majority of a population are vaccinated.”

Stanford epidemiologist Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says the new definition “provides a nice description of how vaccines can protect people against infections” but “is not actually a definition of herd immunity.“

Yardley Yeadon (see graphic) also took issue with this other statement by the hyperpoliticized, China-owned World Health Organization:

The vast majority of people in most countries remain susceptible to this virus. Seroprevalence surveys suggest that in most countries, less than 10% of the population have been infected with COVID-19.

Yeadon called the statement presumes 100% initial susceptibility to the COVID-19 virus, calling it “naively wrong” and “ridiculous because while SARS-CoV-2 is indeed novel, coronaviruses are not.”

He pointed out that there are at least “four, endemic, common-cold inducing coronaviruses … [which] circulate freely in UK and elsewhere.” Those who have been infected by “one or more of these endemic, common-cold producing coronaviruses in the past, have a long-lived and robust [T-cell] immunity, not only to those viruses, but to closely related viruses. SARS-CoV-2 is one such closely-related virus.

To not expect such cross-over is … to demonstrate the lack of the requisite understanding” for being effective in mitigating harms due to an epidemic. He also called the 10% number “a gross and amateur underestimate.

Drawing from the scientific data, Dr. Yeadon stated that previous exposure to common-cold coronaviruses meant that “a significant proportion (30%) of the population went into 2020 armed with T-cells capable of defending them against SARS-CoV-2, even though they had never seen the virus.”

In addition to these 30%, Yeadon criticized the WHO’s conclusion that “less than 10%” of the population has been infected. The number is based on seroprevalence surveys which are inaccurate, because “not every person, infected by a respiratory virus, goes on to produce antibodies” which is what these surveys measure.

2020: White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said President Donald Trump met with several members of Congress on alleged voter fraud, adding that they are “preparing to fight back against mounting evidence of voter fraud. Stay tuned.” He did not elaborate on who was at the meeting. Trump has not conceded the race and has said that fraud and irregularities cost him the election.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) says, “The only thing that will get the congressmen and senators to do what is right for our country on this issue of voter fraud and election theft is active participation by American citizens who want honest and accurate elections. Now, can American citizens actively participate? Very simply, they have to call their congressmen and their senators and demand that they support this effort to protect our election system from fraud and illegal conduct.”

I wrote to Rep. Tom Reed, but I’m not going to bother with Senators Schumer and Gillibrand.

ABORTION: I just saw a FB post that asked, “Has anyone ever asked you why you’re pro-life? What did you tell them?” It reminded me of the time I was standing in a foyer waiting for Dearest to fetch the car.

I holding a pro-life magazine and a fellow came up to me, gestured to the magazine, and asked, “Why are you against abortion?”

The thing is … he wasn’t combative or hostile. In fact, I thought he looked kind of anxious, like he really wanted someone to give him a good reason to believe in something his gut was telling him was true.

I knew I had mere moments to talk to this fellow, so I said a very quick prayer for God to give me the exact right words. What came out of my mouth was this. “Bottom line?” He nodded.

“I don’t think it’s civilized to kill people to solve your problems.”

I’m sure that came from God, because I had never even had that thought before. But as soon as I said it, this man’s face went from anxious and worried to relaxed and relieved. It was absolutely amazing. And I have always been so grateful that God let me be that person for him.

BIRX: She lectured us about traveling for Thanksgiving, going so far as to claim that anyone who did travel for the holiday should just expect to catch the virus. Then, she went to one of her vacation homes in Delaware and shared a meal with three generations of her family from different households.

She was inexplicably unprepared for the blow back and whined, “You know, they’ve tried to be supportive, but to drag my family into this, when my daughter hasn’t left that house in 10 months, my parents have been isolated for 10 months, they’ve [be]come deeply depressed, as I’m sure many elderly have as they’ve not been able to see sons, their granddaughters. My parents haven’t seen their surviving son for over a year. These are all very difficult things.”

Oh. My. Word. Did she seriously just tell us how hard it is to be isolated and not see family for months and months and months? Like only her family has suffered, so we should all understand why she ignored her own preachy rules?

If she’d just said, “I was a hypocrite and I’m sorry,” I might’ve been prepared to say, “I forgive you, but don’t do it again.” Now, I’m more on board with “Don’t let the door hit you on the backside.”

CRUMBS: House Speaker Pelosi spent months stalling the pandemic relief bill lest President Trump get any credit for it. Now, she’s calling $600 stimulus payments “significant.” Back in 2018, she called the $1,000 worker bonuses that resulted from Republican tax cuts “pathetic” “insignificant” “crumbs.”

DARKEST DAYS: Democrats can’t bear to give up the pandemic, which has given them an unprecedented amount of power over their constituencies. Rather than celebrate all the progress we’ve made in testing for, treating, and hopefully preventing the disease, they’re busy busy busy tooting their little doomsday horns about a mutation.

ETHICAL VACCINES: I’m disappointed in Newsmax and LifeSiteNews for posting this deceptively worded headline. Thankfully, Catholic Vote came through, putting “where no alternative exists” in the lede.

The real story is that Catholics who feel a moral responsibility to get a vaccination, but do NOT have access to an “ethically irreproachable” vaccine have been given permission to receive a vaccine that was developed and/or tested on a fetal cell line that originated in the 20th century from one of two aborted babies.

This is similar to the instruction we receive about voting in political races where none of the candidates are 100% pro-life. In these situations, we must choose the more “ethically irreproachable” candidate.

The Lozier Institute has tracked the ethical development of all the COVID-19 vaccines and reports on t hem at the link below.

EUROPE: They’ve embraced Satan’s agenda – The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) dismissed the legal challenge of a Christian Pentecostal family in Norway whose children were seized by government officials in 2015 on charges of “Christian radicalization and indoctrination.”

The ECHR dismissed the case “on the basis that the family had not availed themselves of possible domestic remedies for damages” within Norway’s own legal system. But the family sought legal help outside of Norway because the Norwegian system was the cause of the family’s original separation.

It took the Bodnarius seven months of legal battles to be reunited with their children. Fearing that they would again face discriminatory action from the Norwegian government, they moved back to their native Romania, while continuing their legal battle against an increasingly anti-Christian Europe.

FGM: [5:30] – Female genital mutilation is the cutting or removal of these body parts of women for nonmedical purposes. The practice has no health benefits but levies physical and psychological effects. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 510,000 women and girls in the country have had female genital mutilation or are at risk of it.

On Wednesday, the Senate passed the “Stop FGM Act” (aka, “Strengthening the Opposition to Female Genital Mutilation Act of 2020”) that will give federal law enforcement greater tools to prosecute those who perpetrate the act. HR 1600 is now headed to President Donald Trump’s desk. “It shall not be a defense to a prosecution under this section that female genital mutilation is required as a matter of religion, custom, tradition, ritual, or standard practice,” the text of the bill says.

MASKS: A study of coronavirus cases in counties with mask-mandates vs. those without them found no statistically significant difference. In fact, counties with mask-mandates did slightly worse than those that refused to jackboot the citizenry. A comparison of coronavirus cases in states had even worse results.

It makes no sense to me that people who have recovered from the virus or who have received a vaccination are still required to wear masks. Presumably, those two classes I cited are now immune from the disease. Masks are supposed to protect other people from viruses being shed by an infected person who is pre-symptomatic.

NEW YORK: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ridiculous lockdown orders have angered New York City’s restaurateurs to the point that they are organizing to ban him from all NYC establishments for life.

“He can dine at Gracie Mansion if he wants hospitality in Manhattan. He ain’t getting it here!”

PORKULUS: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/whitehousebrief/videos/214455783551263 [12:33] to hear Senator Rand rant about the “deficits don’t matter” porkulus “covid” relief bill … that includes 5,593 pages of passing out “free money” not just to Americans, but to foreign countries.

On Tuesday night, President Trump called for Congress to take the bill back. “It really is a disgrace,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter. “It’s called the COVID relief bill, but it has almost nothing to do with COVID.”

CLICK https://rumble.com/vc3zhn-president-trump-slams-disgrace-relief-bill-demands-2000-checks.html [4:08] to see Trump’s speech on Rumble. His parting line is awesome!

SAN FRANCISCO: A record number of people (621) died of drug overdoses in San Francisco so far this year. That’s nearly 2 per DAY … and it does not include the 3,000 drug overdose victims who were saved by Narcan.

Meanwhile, this city, which has had some of the worst shut down regulations in the country, has seen a total of 173 deaths from COVID-19.

SLOW JOE: When Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden if he still thinks the allegations against Hunter Biden are Russian disinformation, Biden laughed and said, “Yes, yes, yes. God love you, man. You’re a one horse pony.”

Guy Benson pointed out that his “yes, yes, yes” was a baseless answer to a fully legitimate question. There is zero evidence that the allegations against Hunter Biden are Russian disinformation. Plus, he butchered the expression “one trick pony.”

TIME TO HEAL: Democrats lost seats. What makes them think they’ll drag Trump anywhere?

GRAMMY NOTES: Our Mascots miss the Alaska snow. Where Papa Buzz is stationed now, they get very little of the fun white stuff. So when they did get a bit, they made the most of it. I’m impressed they found enough snow to build a whole snowman! LOL

It was such a special day that Mama Buzz made an ornament for their tree to commemorate it. The nose on the ornament is a battery-powered tea light. The features and buttons etc. on the real snowman are painted wood. They’re from a snowman kit somebody got them years ago.

2020: I just tried to post this on Facebook and got a fact check warning. The fact check article “debunking” the simple mathematical conclusion in my graphic said that the “66.2% turnout” cited by the Washington Post was “clearly labeled” as a share of the “voting-eligible population”, not of “registered voters.” Then, the fact checker tried to make a mathematical case for why the 66.2% of “the voting-eligible population” was actually equal to 155.5 million.

The flaw in the totally non-partisan Facebook don’tyoudaretalkaboutvoterfraud Fact Check is that “registered voters” and “voting-eligible population” are the same thing. The only people who can legally vote in U.S. elections are U.S. citizens who have met their state residency requirements, have turned 18 before Election Day, and have registered to vote.

ABORTION: [3:02] – The video was included as a funny addendum to the article at Townhall about Vice’s rant condemning pro-lifers using ultrasound images and pictures of aborted babies to de-legitimize abortion. Vice is such an appropriate name.

BABY JESUS: After hearing God call him, a man in Brazil started adopting disabled children, many of them survivors of botched abortions. He has made a home for them in a place he calls Comunidade Jesús Menino (Community of Baby Jesus). Watch the 4:37 video at either the Rumble or LifeSiteNews links. If you want to help, donate at the Life Funder link.

CATHOLIC: Pope Francis has appointed Washington, DC Archbishop Gregory to the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life. Gregory excoriated the administrators of the John Paul II National Shrine for “allowing” Trump to visit and pray. He has backed abortion legislation and says he would not hesitate to give Joe Biden Holy Communion. He has even claimed that “birth is only the first moment of a person’s human dignity,” despite the clear teaching from the ancient church that Jesus Himself was fully human and fully divine from the moment of conception.

CHRISTIE: On Sunday, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie appeared on “The Situation Room” with Wolf Blitzer on CNN and proceeded to be very blunt with President Trump concerning Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell. He told Trump to keep them out of the Oval Office. Christie has been making the media rounds lately doing a mea culpa on not wearing a mask when he said he should have. He has also been attacking the president at every turn over the election.

COVID-19: How much longer will Democrat Jackboots will continue to cancel holidays, destroy small businesses, and arrest people for not wearing masks? We’ve now got half a dozen effective treatments for a disease that is about 99% survivable, we’ve got a quick-results, at-home test for the virus, we’ve got millions of people who have recovered from the disease who are now immune, and now we’re vaccinating millions more.

Gen. Gustave Perna, chief operations officer for Operation Warp Speed, says the United States has distributed nearly 3 million doses of the new COVID-19 vaccine, and more are on their way to states across the country. “What a remarkable feat, and we should all be proud of what has happened.”

HATERS WILL HATE: George Takei’s vicious opinions have made it nearly impossible for me to enjoy Star Trek reruns.

ORWELLIAN: The Brits have launched a “re-education program” that encourages people to report concerns that loved ones are “developing extremist views” — which it fails to define — and “being filled with hate.”

The website gives a few real-life examples of people who have been “helped” by the Prevent program. Three of the stories describe “intervention” for people with vaguely defined “extreme right-wing” views, and three stories describe “extremist” Muslim views.

Conspicuously absent from the list are examples of people with “extremist left-wing” views.

PATRIOT: Early this month, the sound system glitched before a high school basketball game in Ohio. The announcer told everyone to stand for the national anthem, but when no music played for some minutes, a mom in the bleachers urged her hubby to sing. And he did so with no musical backup or a microphone.

Another parent posted the video to his Facebook, where it has received brought people to tears. He captured the performance on video and posted it to Facebook, where it has received around 1 million views. He said it brought people to tears.

I know I need a tissue! That was not just brave and patriotic, but wow … it’s such a hard song for any vocalist, never mind without accompaniment! He did a great job!!

RACISM: The New York Slime is obsessed with hating white people. A recent article cited three different “experts” who all cited RACE as their prime criteria for deciding who should get priority in the COVID vaccine waiting lists.

I assumed the vaccines would go first to the elderly, health care workers, and the military, then to older workers in jobs with a lot of public contact, particularly transportation and education.

Silly, silly me. CLEARLY, the important criteria is the color of a person’s skin! What was I thinking! Also top priority apparently are members of Congress, regardless of how NOT in any high risk group they are.

STATISTICS: More science the Democrats don’t care about – A data analyst with 30 years of experience studied the election results and found that Biden’s vote totals fell 5.6% above the prediction line in 78 percent of counties that used Dominion or HART InterCivic voting machines. This held true in both Republican and Democrat counties.

GRAMMY NOTES: Lil’ Buzz was asked to write steps for how he would trap gingerbread people. He was apparently inspired by a recent trip to a farm. 🙂
