Contractor mandate falls; Biden wants to program us like robots; a spectacular legal opportunity for Trump in the Biden Raid case; good news for SEALs; bad news for Germans; and more...
"Many people think this is part of reason governments are suddenly pushing for digital currencies; because it’s so easy to know everything worth knowing about someone by their account records." That is absolutely true, but the most important reason is that it's very difficult to tax the cash economy. The federal government wants EVERYONE to be a W2 employee - automatic tax withholdings, W2s get reported to the IRS by the employer, a taxpayer cannot hide when they are a W2 employee. And this brings me to my next thought: this new "public-private partnership" paradigm is escalating and really, the impetus (excuse) that has propelled it forward was the pandemic, but I digress. Anyhoo, government loves large corporations because it's an easier span of control for a government to manage a relatively small number of large corporations that employ millions of (W2) employees nationwide rather than millions of small businesses, entrepreneurs, gig workers, etc. And big corporations LOVE big government because (despite what they may give lip service to), they LOVE onerous and burdensome regulations - because large corporations can AFFORD to comply with onerous regulations - they have the money to hire entire compliance departments. But guess who CANNOT afford compliance? Those nasty and pesky competitors and roadblocks to complete monopolies, small businesses. And thus we have the perfect marriage of the corporate/government state. This is not conspiracy theory, this is firsthand knowledge from my former career.
Jeff….thanks so much for using plain English to report on the doings of the DOJ/ FBI antics. It’s very confusing to most of us!
And the humor with it is so welcome!!
If Biden can just write EOs for anything he wants, why do we have Congress?
If the contractors aren't going to be mandated to take the jab, end the mandate for federal employees. We are way beyond the EUA phase and the shots don't work. Stop this madness!
Our en banc hearing was yesterday and I hope the 5th circuit rules in our favor.
Sorry to labor the point but common sense must prevail! Cancel Big Pharma's unjustifiable IMMUNITY from LIABILITY. They're still using a 'decades old' 'TEMPORARY' (Licence to Kill) introduced by Reagan for Swine Flu in 1987, which still enables them to continue to kill thousands of vax recipients with impunity. The Swine Flu Experiment was abandoned after 50+ US citizens died POST VAX . This was deemed "Too Dangerous". In the past TWO YEARS they've killed MILLIONS Worldwide but still continue with no regard. Mick from Hooe (UK) Unjabbed and looking for Adolf Schwab!
I love it when you do litigation analysis! I'm a corporate lawyer but I've dabbled in litigation and it's always an interesting battle of getting the right court, the right judge, working out your tactics and strategies, your moves and counter-moves to get you where you want to go. Fascinating stuff!
I never bought into the 5G nanotech graphine stuff, but this EO makes me pause.
As to going to digital currency, in addition to what you pointed out, it's also easier to take away a person's freedom by locking their accounts. Sure, the government can freeze bank accounts now, but if you have cash stashed away you can still live. Not so if all you have is digital currency and that gets frozen. It's all just another means to control us.
Thank you for helping with parents' rights legislation.
Hopefully the Healthcare mandate goes away soon. And let's get these masks off of Healthcare workers and patients faces too.
Big difference between "will not enforce" and terminating or rescinding. It is very telling that with all the evidence that has finally been published, the Executive Orders still remain intact and in place. This is no time to let our collective guard down. We must press for legislative limitations on federal power at the state level.
I'm going to say that if that is the plan legally, I am entirely convinced that Trump shouldn't be given credit for it, but his lawyers. Trump is not a genius from what I can tell: sharp, yes; canny, sure; smart even. But he makes blunders that even most supporters can/have/would say are headscratchers
Considering how poorly he hires, whether on recommendation or by choice, it's something of a surprise that this legal team seems smarter than the DOJ (although I suppose that's a low bar), if they have manipulated the DOJ, and Merrick Garbage in particular, into such a favorable position for Trump.
We'll see how it plays out...
Thank you Jeff! I always appreciate the sense of sanity I get when I read C&C.
Maybe the Germans could use those nuclear plants to power giant fans and point them in the direction of the wind turbines.
The timing issue reminds me - RIGHT BEFORE Bill G stepped down from Microsoft, the company issued a patent for using body activity to mine cryptocurrency; "award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified" https://patentscope2.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2020060606 The publication number is WO/2020/060606. (3 sixes, which of course then spun up the 'number of the beast' theory people) Conspiracy theorists wondered if the timing of Bill's departure was relevant to the issuance of this patent. Wonder if this is the kind of 'biomanufacturing' they want to do?
Asking Jeff to don his attorney's hat, and explain how the DOJ, or Congress, or anyone for that matter, can prove which Presidential documents have been declassified. Are records kept showing document i.d. and date of declassification? If so, who keeps them? Or are documents declass'd simply by POTUS say-so?
Hey another round of blatant FBI targeting yesterday on Trump’s supporters- Pillow guy! How could we peacefully ever recover from this horrible, politically evil department? I bet next 2 months we will see many Rs arrested for practicing constitutional rights.
