01) Elizabeth Warren’s BRILLIANT Medicare For All Plan
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren says paying for “Medicare for All” would require $20.5 trillion in new federal spending over a decade. That spending includes higher taxes on the wealthy but no new taxes on the middle class.
The Democratic presidential candidate released her plan to pay for Medicare for All on Friday after being dogged for months by questions of how she would finance such a sweeping overhaul of the health care system. That pressure has been intensified by the fact that Warren has made detailed proposals a central part of her brand as a candidate.
Medicare for All is a single-payer health care proposal introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders and cosponsored by multiple candidates in the presidential race, including Warren. It would virtually eliminate private insurance, including employer-sponsored coverage.
Many of the things expressed in this Sub-Blog, I’ve addressed any number of times over the years. I don’t wish to analyze every video, etc., but I do find it valuable to share these kinds of video, etc., even if I disagree substantially with any of it…It’s important to acknowledge and embrace, that there are people out there, who are engaged in levelheaded discussion about “pedophiles”. – Steve

01) 60 MINUTES: Paedophiles ‘born, not made’, controversial study finds
“By studying the brains of convicted child sex offenders, neuroscientist Doctor James Cantor claims to have uncovered an important – but uncomfortable – fact: Paedophiles are born, not made.
“All the evidence suggests that paedophilia begins in the womb,” Dr Cantor told 60 Minutes reporter Liam Bartlett.
“A person does not pick it. And despite every kind of treatment that has been attempted over a century, nothing has been shown to be able to change these people from paedophiles into non-paedophiles.”
Dr Cantor told 60 Minutes he’d studied MRI scans of convicted child sex offenders, and found a dramatic cross-wiring in the connective tissue of their brains.
Dr Cantor’s controversial research concludes that paedophiles are products of nature, not nurture.”

01) AOC Sends Facebook Into PANIC As Truth Comes Out
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sends facebook into panic as truth comes out. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.
New York (CNN Business)A San Francisco man tried to call out Facebook’s controversial false ads policy by running false ads of his own. Now the company is barring him from doing so — and the man told CNN Business he’s now considering legal action.
Adriel Hampton, a political activist, registered as a candidate for California’s 2022 gubernatorial election on Monday so he could take advantage of Facebook’s policy allowing politicians and political candidates to run false ads on the platform.
On Tuesday evening, a Facebook (FB) spokesperson told CNN Business, “This person has made clear he registered as a candidate to get around our policies, so his content, including ads, will continue to be eligible for third-party fact-checking.”
Ads from people and groups other than politicians are subject to fact-checking.
Hampton had pulled the stunt with the hope of forcing the company to change its policy and stop allowing politicians to run false ads.”
01) Florida Cops Went to Absurd Lengths to Entrap Man Who Showed No Interest in Underage Sex
Thanks to feinmann0!
“How do you catch a predator in Sarasota, Florida? You create one. The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) is going to outrageous lengths to make law-abiding lonely guys into sex offenders. That’s according to Noah Pransky, a fearless journalist who has been covering Florida’s addiction to entrapment for years.
In September, SCSO arrested 23 men for allegedly soliciting underage girls for sex. Pransky’s most recent piece in Florida Politics chronicles the elaborate back and forth between one of those men and a police officer pretending to be a young female.
In one example from a 2017 operation, SCSO spent two days trying to seduce a 20-year-old man who showed no interest in having sex with a child. Detectives, who posted an ad for an 18-year-old woman on Tinder, matched with the young man and proceeded to swap getting-to-know-you texts for more than an hour; only then did detectives tell the man he was chatting with a 14-year-old girl, not an 18-year-old.
Undercover detectives continued to try and talk about sex with the man the next day; he again rebuffed the attempts, but continued the small talk because he indicated he was bored. Detectives then sent unsolicited, flirty photos to the man; a tactic that violates best practices and ethical standards for this type of stings.
The terrible thing about this case is that the sheriff’s office is not trying to save any actual kids. It is just trying to get an easy win.
Normally, the SCSO destroys the records of these stings, preventing the public from understanding the sordid process that produced the arrest of the supposed sex offender. But in the case highlighted above, the 20-year-old man was actually a civilian employee of the SCSO, and he preserved the chat log.”
