It’s time to pop the popcorn, folks.  This is going to be hilarious.

2018 election

The left was denied their massive “blue wave” last night, but that won’t stop them from providing us with loads of entertainment in 2019.

For the cynical political observer such as myself, the gains made by the democrats in last night’s 2018 midterm elections could translate into some wild antics in the coming legislative session.  This will be led by none other than Nancy Pelosi, assuming the role of speaker of the house despite her incessant and unflappable ability to stick her foot directly into her mouth.

But Nancy’s not the only one…

Meanwhile, Rep. Maxine Waters, another California Democrat and one who has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment, could soon control her own committee — which would yield her the power to subpoena and control the fate of legislation.

Then there’s Rep. Adam Schiff, a true Trump hater who is beloved by the mainstream media.

Another California Democrat, Schiff could likely rise to chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, where he is now the ranking member.

Schiff, 58, said in an interview with CNN that the committee would “investigate questions involving Russian money laundering and President Donald Trump’s businesses.” Schiff said his committee would work in tandem with Waters’ focus on potential money-laundering schemes involving the Trump campaign and Russia, saying he’ll back Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into alleged collusion.

The list goes on…

Then there’s Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who would be poised to take over the House Judiciary Committee. Nadler could work with Schiff to oversee any attempt to impeach Trump.

Nadler, 71, was on the committee when it voted to impeach former President Bill Clinton, but he said then that the vote was an attempted coup and a “gross abuse” of the impeachment power. He apparently doesn’t think that any more.

“If the president perjured himself about colluding with Russians, that would be worthy of impeachment,” Nadler said in September. “Perjury about some real estate deal that happened 10 years ago that the Trump Organization took, that would not be an impeachable offense. It would be a crime.”

And, outside of these soon to be filled leadership roles, there’s a new girl on the block as well, whose penchant for nonsense precedes her.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Swing State Getting Serious, Dumping 100K Off of Voter Rolls

This is the first such cleanup in YEARS.

Published

Over the course of the next several years, America is going to be taking a good hard look at how she handles elections, and things are likely to get somewhat ugly in the process. That’s because we’ve allowed the false dichotomy of the two-party system to stake claims to how we vote.  On the left, a free-for-all.  On the right, a far more serious application of election laws that could be commandeered by ne’er-do-wells looking to massage the electoral results. So, as we head to the polls in 2022 and 2024, we will do so under the auspices of angst, almost undoubtedly, after having seen a great deal of fussing and fudging of the system itself. In Georgia, a massive cleanup of the voter rolls are now underway, for example. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger intends to remove 101,789 “obsolete and outdated” voter files from the state’s voter registration rolls, his office announced. “Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year. Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.” The more than 100,000 voter files set to be removed include 67,286 voter files linked to a National Change of Address form submitted to the U.S. Postal Service; 34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender; and nearly 300 that had no contact with elections official for two general elections. This is the first serious sanitation attempt since 2019, and has already seen over 18,000 dead Georgians removed from the rolls.

CREEPY: Texas Power Companies Remotely Adjusting Home Thermostats

That’s not okay.

Published

on

When we first began to suffer the beginning of the “smart home” era, there were, (as there still are), plenty of Americans who found themselves wary of just what this interconnectedness could mean for us.  Was this going to allow us to better serve ourselves, or would this merely provide a conduit for some malign overlord to further tighten their grip on our every move? Many of us were already concerned about the increase in the amount of cameras that were being placed around the country, and we were suddenly also signing up, (and paying for), listening devices to be installed in our homes, which connected directly to the retail megaliths of Amazon and Google. Now, in a remarkably unnerving move, power companies in Texas are digitally sneaking into homes to adjust the temperature. In Texas, power companies are reaching into homes remotely to turn the temperature up, USA Today reports. People who have noticed the surprise adjustments have pointed them out on social media. But the companies can make them if the customer joined energy-saving programs designed to reduce the strain on the state’s power grid. The nonprofit that runs the Texas grid—which had a bad winter— said last week that it’s worried about getting through the current heat wave. And yes, that’s just as ridiculous as it sounds. “During summer peak energy demand days, we may briefly adjust your thermostat settings by a few degrees,” CPS Energy says on its website. “We’ll do this only as needed.” Under the rules for utilities, the changes can be in effect for one to four hours at a time, on any weekday that’s not a holiday, from June 1 through Sept. 30. Of course, users can opt out of this specific program if they’d like to, but it would preclude them…
