    Remember when we were energy independent, the border was under control, there were low gas prices, no inflation, low unemployment, low food prices, no empty shelves in the stores?...

    Biden is slammed for plan to fine businesses up to $14,000 for EACH unvaccinated worker: Retailers warn of staff shortages over holidays and GOP says 'no one should have to choose between vaccine and putting food on table'

    [​IMG]

    Private companies could face nearly $14,000 fines for each unvaccinated worker - and up to $136,532 for repeat offenders or those found to have willfully violated the rules under the Biden administration's new sweeping mandates that start today. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced the final version of the new rule on Thursday morning, which will impact more than 80 million workers at companies nationwide with at least 100 employees. 'OSHA is issuing a rule to require employers with 100 or more employees to ensure each of their workers is fully vaccinated or tests negative for COVID at least once a week. This rule covers 84 million employees,' according to a senior administration official.

    Trucker who spent $153 on his campaign BEATS longtime NJ Senate president: Yet another humiliating defeat for Democrats by Raymour and Flanagan delivery driver who got turned away for a gun permit

    [​IMG]

    Underdog GOP candidate Ed Durr beat Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney in South New Jersey's 3rd Legislative District by a razor thin margin of 52 percent of the vote to 48. It's another embarrassing upset for the Democrats after they lost the Virginia gubernatorial election, struggled in the race for New Jersey governor and performed dismally in votes across the country. He's never held elected office but said in a past interview that he was spurred to run in his blue collar and predominantly white area by being unable to get a concealed carry permit.

    The arrest of the man behind the phony dossier underscores the many lies of the Russia hoax

    It has been a long time coming. But that is how reckonings sometimes happen. The fabulist behind the discredited anti-Trump dossier was taken into custody by federal authorities Thursday as Special Counsel John Durham continues to build his case against those who manufactured and propagated the phony Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

    Igor Danchenko was charged in a criminal indictment with five counts of lying to the FBI about the sources he used for the bogus information he delivered to former British spy Christopher Steele that comprised the bulk of his dossier.

    But we already know a great deal about the man who was hired by the disgraced Steele to smear Donald Trump with false accusations of crimes he did not commit.

    Danchenko was not some mysterious Russian agent operating in the bowels of the Kremlin. He is a Ukrainian-born resident of the United States who worked as a senior research analyst for the Washington, D.C. liberal think tank, Brookings Institution. When the dossier was concocted in 2016, the president of Brookings was Strobe Talbott, a longtime friend and ally of Hillary Clinton. This was hardly a coincidence.

    It was Clinton and her confederates who invented the Russia hoax to frame her opponent with the most noxious offense in America: a treasonous conspiracy with the Kremlin to steal a presidential election. The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) financed their illicit scheme by secretly funneling money to Steele, who hired Danchenko as his primary source for the dossier.

    Declassified documents show that the CIA knew as early as July of 2016 that Clinton had personally approved the devious operation. Shortly thereafter the FBI tracked down Danchenko, who admitted his role and debunked the dossier as little more than a fairy tale.

    But John Brennan and James Comey, the respective directors of the CIA and FBI at the time, kept the truth hidden from Congress, President Trump, and the American people. Their insipid deception allowed the collusion lie to gain traction in the mainstream media.

    The FBI exploited the dossier as a pretext to investigate Trump. Their misbegotten probe should have been shut down in its infancy. Beginning a mere four days after Trump was inaugurated in January of 2017, FBI agents interviewed Danchenko during three successive sessions and on multiple occasions after that.

    A stunning 56-page report —concealed from the public until last year— revealed what he told the FBI. I’ve previously written about its contents, but here is a refresher.

    Biden Energy Sec. Granholm laughs at question about boosting oil production: 'That is hilarious'

    Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Friday laughed at a question about boosting America's domestic oil production, calling it "hilarious."

    Bloomberg host Tom Keene noted America's rising gas prices and asked the energy secretary, "What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?"

    Granholm immediately began laughing. "That is hilarious," she said. "Would that I had the magic wand on this. As you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC, and they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning."

    President Biden has overhauled America's approach to its oil industry.

    In June, Biden suspended oil drilling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the latest move in a series of sweeping policy changes to how the U.S. approaches the oil industry.

    Since taking office, Biden has signed a series of broad executive orders related to the environment, including pausing new federal oil leases, rejoining the Paris climate agreement, eliminating subsidies for the fossil fuel industry, revoking permits for the Keystone XL Pipeline and converting the government's fleet of vehicles to electric power.

    Republicans have hammered the Biden administration for relying on OPEC to address rising gas prices, instead of boosting domestic oil production.

    In an August letter to Biden, 24 Republican senators called it "astonishing that your Administration is now seeking assistance from an international oil cartel when America has sufficient domestic supply and reserves to increase output which would reduce gasoline prices."

    "Your Administration’s domestic oil and gas development policies are hurting American consumers and workers, are contrary to an "America First" energy agenda, and reinforce a reliance on foreign oil," the senators added.

    I don't even know how to play football. Don't own any football skates or bats or anything. Don't care.

    But it seems to me he should stick to what he's an expert on, which is football. And also consider he's a highly paid visible member of a large organization that ought to maybe just take his cues from them.

    I saw a snippet of an interview and he was talking about 'body autonomy' and how he should be allowed to make his own choices. I actually agree with him but maybe not the way he thinks. I wonder what his views on abortion are. Not really, but it makes an interesting comparison.

    Dan Rather was ousted from television after one critical error and now we see whole networks like MSNBC openly embrace stories like the Steele Dossier even after having been exposed as complete fakes based upon nothing but lies...

    He's an idiot for not being honest from the start, after all, he is in the public eye and has a fanbase being a football player...I don't care if he is unvaccinated, its his choice and I support those who choose not to get a covid vaccine...We have to stop that type of witchhunt in our country, it serves only to divide and will cause much hardship if it continues...
