“Last year when he announced that Rishi Sunak had been elected Prime Minister of the U.K., Joe Biden mispronounced his name as “Rashid Sanook.” Then during Biden’s trip to Belfast, the President greeted Sunak brusquely, pushing him aside to engage with a nearby (white) man dressed in military attire, leading many to speculate that Joe doesn’t remember who the U.K. Prime Minister is.

“In light of the recent leaks of classified Pentagon documents, the Washington Post snapped into action — and helped track down and rat out the leaker. Is that now the journalistic community’s role, to root out leakers to help the FBI rather than to encourage more leakers to come forward to share secrets about government lies?
Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the topsy turvy world where journalists act as an arm of the intelligence community rather than a check on them.”
“During an interview on OAN this week, sore loser Kari Lake suggested that she’s considering a run for Senate in Arizona because she’s absolutely sure that she would win. Of course, she still maintains that she actually won the governor’s race even though she didn’t, so we should look at anything she says with a skeptic eye. But there actually could be a path to victory for Lake, and that’s beyond terrifying, as Farron Cousins explains.

Sore loser. Kari Lake is proud to say that she is apparently ready to lose again, even though she maintains that she totally still won that gubernatorial election in the state of Arizona. I guess she has finally decided to look to the future at other races she might be able to lose, and one of those races is the upcoming 2024 Senate race in the state of Arizona. During an interview on One America News this week, Kari Lake said that she is absolutely considering a run for that Senate seat because according to her, all of the polling data shows that she would totally win it, right? Just like all the polling data showed, she was totally gonna be governor, right? Here’s what she said. Let me read her statement before I tell you what the polls actually say. I am seriously considering a run for Senate. Yes, absolutely.
Just because they stole an election, we’re so dangerous to them. I’m so dangerous to the status quo in this rotten swamp that they’re willing to steal an election to stop me in our movement. I’m not letting them get away with that. We’re not going away. And so I am seriously considering a run for Senate. All the polling shows that I would win, not just the primary. The polling is showing that I would beat Kirsten Sinema and this socialist guy that’s running for the Democrats, uh, representative Ruben Gallego. First of all, the election was not in fact, stolen from you. The courts have proved that you’ve been given every opportunity to walk into those courts and provide them with any evidence to back up any of your claims, and you’ve failed to do it because that election was 100% on the level. In fact, as we recently talked about, they actually put more safeguards in place to make sure that there was no funny business in the 2022 election because they knew the public spotlight would be on them after all of the issues that they allegedly had in 2020.
Also, report came out just yesterday showing that all those ballot issues that they had in Arizona was actually due to the fact that they switched the ballots to thicker paper and the printers couldn’t really handle the thicker paper, but they switched it to the thicker paper because of the conspiracy theories that flew around after 2020. So had it not been for people like you, Carrie Lake, um, they wouldn’t have had the ballot issues. They were trying to head that off before it happened, but there was no fraud. You’ve not been able to prove any fraud because the election was 100% legitimate. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, how about we talk about those poll numbers, right? Because she says the poll numbers show that she’s gonna win. She’s gonna win the primary, she’s gonna win the general. No, there’s actually not a single bit of polling data that shows that Carrie Lake, not one, not one frigging poll shows you actually winning that general election. Um, also, uh, in the primary, there’s also a very good chance you wouldn’t win that either based on the polls. But
Let’s talk about the general election polls. If the race is simply Gallego versus Lake Gallego runs away with it by double digits, lake Carry Lake will not win a general election in the state of Arizona. Where it becomes a little more cloudy is when you have a three-way race between Gallego Lake and Kirsten Sinema, who’s no longer a Democrat. So she’d be running as an independent. At that point, representative Gallego still wins, but by a slim enough margin that Carrie Lake might be able to get enough support to win. But as of right now, she does not. And of course, cinema’s a distant third. If cinema does not run, lake has no chance at all. If cinema does run, lake may have a chance only because cinema might siphon off enough voters to decrease Gallegos count, which would elevate whatever Lake is able to get.
People don’t commonly like to take into account, just how much real damage organized religion does to individual people.
One of the things that I really hate about the experience of growing up deeply in religion…is the fact that once your blinders are off, and you start seeing things for what they are…there is a lot of bewilderment, that people would do that to you…You realize you’ve been lied to all your life…and not in tiny ways you can just ignore.
Your very understanding of the world around you is built on this foundation…and you can no longer place any faith in that foundation…It’s a complete debasement of your life…And it’s just so freaking insane…and without any sound reason…
I wont say that it destroyed me…Clearly, it did not…But I am far more deeply skeptical of what’s going on in the world, because of it…I think.
I don’t jump into anything, quick or easy…There’s to much manipulation, lies and bullshit going on in this world…
I’ve been burned quite enough, thank you…I’ll have no more.
“Antiwar activist Jose Vega continues his unflagging efforts to confront the nation’s political and media leaders over U.S. support for war in Ukraine, this time joining former U.S. Senate candidate Diane Sare to disrupt a journalism panel and question the participants’ support for Russiagate, opposition to Julian Assange and refusal to call for an investigation of the Nord Stream pipeline attack.
