Don't know, but I do know that his first book publisher released a bio in 1991 stating that he was born in Kenya. Maybe Obama had them put that to make his resume seem more impressive than being raised by upper middle class grandparents in Hawaii, or maybe it's a rare glimpse of the truth when no one could have foreseen him running for President. Here's a photo of that dust jacket.

Yup. In Lyndon Johnson's 1948 Senate race election officials "found" a ballot box several days after the election. It held 203 votes, all but one for LBJ. Amazingly enough, the voters had cast their ballots in alphabetical order.

Of course the infamous Tammany Hall in NY was synonymous with election fraud. They were so aggressive at election fixing that between 1868 and 1871, the number of votes cast in the city totaled 8% more than the entire voting population.

So, yeah this has been going on for a long time.

First of all, I didn't say the officer corps was blameless, that's your distortion. I simply said that your generalization that officers are the bastion of the self-serving opportunists while the enlisted are the patriots was BS. There is plenty of opportunism at every level.

As for this Military Times poll, I'll file that with the rest of the polls, as fake news. The facts that they only show 44% support for the President across the board already shows it to be garbage. Secondly, the results contradict their own poll from just a few years ago showing "Officers tend to be not only more partisan, but also more Republican, with GOP affinity strongest among the highest ranks."

I'm a 20 year officer and every pay grade has their self-serving opportunists. There's a huge cohort of lazy enlisted who see the military as a Federal jobs program. Plenty of inner city types in the E-5 and below, who will not lift a finger unless hounded constantly and told in painful explicit detail how. Then you have these NCOs who have discovered they can sit on their ass and collect a paycheck without doing any real work by being a regulation quoter. You see these types in the Air Force. They'll exploit the ridiculous Byzantine maze of regulations churned out by CYA senior leadership to find an excuse to avoid doing anything. So to generalize this to the officer corps is completely false. As far as political alignment, most of the leftists in the military are on the enlisted side.

I think this douchebag is a postal inspector. The ranks of all Federal law enforcement are compromised.

Well, that's good news. Still requires a phone number to set up an account, so I'm sticking with WickrMe.

Beware Telegram does not have E2EE by default and if you don’t encrypt your chat, then your data is stored on Telegram’s servers, which puts the security of your messages at risk.

I use WickrMe, which it's what SOCOM recommends for their soldiers to use in foreign countries to prevent foreign intelligence snooping. No phone number to create an account, end-to-end AES 256 encryption, Burn-On-Read messages and attachments, source code is publicly visible.

My issues with Signal is that it requires a phone number to setup an account. They are also owned or funded by Twitter. The security is supposedly good and the code is open source, but if you have issues with either of those try something else.

I'm beginning to think they were both subversives, just trying to run out the clock on the deep state corruption. Pretend to be aggressively investigating, then never come up with anything, wait out the election and then if Trump loses they both vanish and they succeed in protecting the swamp rats.

If the Dems succeed with the steal WV is going to have to bombard Manchin with pressure to keep them from ramming through the radical left's agenda.

She's not even a moderate. She's a Marxist Bernie fangirl. Just because she broke with the fascist left on a couple issues all the simps went gaga for her.

Stockholm Syndrome. They're so used to being abused that just a few crumbs or table scraps from their terrorist overlords are considered a blessing.

Biden already admitted he's got the most extensive voter fraud organization ever and he doesn't need your votes to win.

Same here. I am almost certain they have been shadow banning content for years. A few years ago I used to get a big response from my political posts (both positive likes from supporters and negative comments from libs) then it all dropped and only a few followers ever respond. Occasionally I do get a big response by using screenshots rather than direct links. I suspect the algorithm is not so good at recognizing screenshots as just filtering domains or reposted photos/memes they've already manually banned or "deboooonked."

They have to build the case with the American people and win the election. And part of that is getting the soundbites. Then when we get a majority in the House and Senate we can pass a bill revoking their Section 230 protections. You're not going to perjury trap them. Only crooked Democrat prosecutors like Mueller get away with that by strong-arming and bankrupting people like Flynn. Even if you could trick them to lie under oath they'll spend millions on legal defense and walk away laughing because the legal standard to prove perjury is extremely high.

When you subpoena them, they will fight it in court and drag it out. Then when you finally get them to appear they will answer "I don't know" or "I can't remember" to everything like every corrupt Democrat does to avoid any perjury risk. Then when if they do perjure themselves you have to submit a referral to DOJ to get them to do anything. The solution is to vote out the Democrats in the House and get rid of Pelosi and repeal Section 230.

And you think Nancy Pelosi is going to pass a repeal of 230 while she is Speaker?
