    What do people expect of their governor? What of their President? Taking over precincts, school boards, and the like is step one, an people are stepping up.
    It's one party rule in California. We can go on and on why that is..

    Anyway, here are some interesting thoughts from Tim Donnelly regarding the recall results. He was in the California political system. He posted this on Facebook, I'm coping it here:


    I know that many of you are angry and frustrated and looking for answers.

    It's easy to just blame election fraud for last night's landslide victory for Socialism, but I believe the electoral system and the rule of law in our state--and possibly, our nation--are fundamentally corrupt, and that most elections can be and are rigged.

    Just not in the way that you think.

    It isn't just the 'vote counters' on election night as I alluded to in my post last night, it's those behind them. That's what I mean by the 'will of the counters'.

    It's everyone who holds power--and those who put them in power either by leveraging their members (think Public Sector Unions) and their money (again the unions and the very, very wealthy), those who believe they should 'rule over' us, not at our consent.

    It isn't just the blatant irregularities we hear about on election day at the polls and later that night in the counting places, it's the fact that if you are out of power, you must obey all the rules (even though those rules were designed by your opponent's side to suppress and intimidate any challenges to their divine right to rule).

    Example, if you want to point out that your opponent is backed by a PAC run by a former elected Democrat who was also a KKK member, you can go to the media. You can write press releases and hold protest rallies, but 99.9% of the time, the press will simply ignore you because they'll tell you if you ask, that they cannot involve themselves in the mudslinging of a campaign.

    Mind you, if you are on the opposite side of those who control most of the 'mainstream media', they'll find a way to justify any negative information they can publish about you (and declare it was in the interest of the news).

    They'll do full-scale hit pieces on you, give your opponents unlimited air time, while denying you any free airtime to defend yourself from the attacks they are propagating against you.

    Believe me, I know of this first-hand from running for Governor of CA in 2014.

    And then along came Trump, who exposed all of it.

    And they ridiculed, demonized and trashed his name until it became a symbol for all that was wrong in the world (even though they probably would have treated Hitler better than they treated Trump).

    Now, just invoking the name Trump--whether in the news media, on a popular sitcom or streaming series, or by comedians or entertainers in movie and music--it has become code to call someone 'racist', 'xenophobic', 'homophobic', 'anti-vax' etc.

    All of those examples of political speech are unregulated as 'free speech'--and as much as I hate them having that power, I still believe in defending free speech.

    But when the code language can be invoked during the election season where political speech is actually supposed to be subject to regulation and 'equal time' restrictions, you can see the tremendous, overwhelming advantage the left has.

    All they have to do is use the word 'Trump' as a dog whistle--and last night, you see the results.

    Yesterday's recall election was organized by grassroots individuals frustrated at Newsom's confiscatory and fascist policies toward working people and business owners, while Newsom himself was living high on the hog above the very laws he was pushing down on the rest of us.

    This movement was organic, bi-partisan and gaining momentum. So much so, that about 2 months ago, it was almost a sure thing that Newsom would be recalled. So, the Media-Entertainment- Political Industrial Establishment went to work to give Newsom the victory.

    All they had to do was report nightly on all the flaws--real or imagined--of the front-runner, while rationalizing and downplaying everything that ordinary people were pissed off about the incumbent.

    So every night in the Media, it was Elder is the 'face of white-supremacy', a Trump acolyte, a domestic abuser who intimidated his fiance with a gun, etc. And every night, it was Newsom is taking another step to protect Californians and make sure they can pay their rent...(and oh by the way, did you get the additional $600 CA bailout to those on unemployment). That was nothing more than a bribe in exchange for votes paid for by you, to keep the guy you can't stand in office.

    But that's not all they do to rig elections. They have a back-up plan. And that's what we saw in the 2020 election. There has been a very deliberate effort funded by Soros and others of his ilk, who hate the 'ignorant masses' (that's how they view us), so they created a slate of legislation to undermine election integrity in every state in the union, but they started in CA).

    I know this because I witnessed it--and fought against it--first hand as the Vice Chairman of the Elections Committee in the CA State Assembly, starting in 2010.

    They opposed all Voter ID laws (and in fact, openly ridiculed out loud in committee any member who introduced one).

    Gave DL to Illegal Aliens so they could eventually be signed up to vote.

    Required ALL those with DL to be AUTOMATICALLY Registered to vote (even it turns out, illegal aliens, surprise, surprise).

    Weakened the following protections to allow....

    Voters to be registered on Election Day

    Votes to be rec'd by mail up to 7 days after the election

    Voting to take place a full month prior to the election

    Votes to be 'harvested' by anyone (without restriction) so that mass voter fraud would be almost undetectable (as long as the signatures on the empty envelope were correct. Then the operative could fill out the ballot, seal the envelope, and voila, you have just enough votes to throw an election at the last minute and it's virtually impossible to prove. But then again, that was the plan).

    And probably many more things I'm forgetting to mention....(that's how widespread this decades-long effort was to undermine election integrity).

    Then in the 2020 election (using Pandemic as excuse), require every one to Vote By Mail, so that all of the methods by which they can cheat all come into play.

    If you just take one or two of these provisions, it doesn't seem like much, but when you view them in their entirety, you have a recipe for massive voter fraud. A recipe that many of us have been warning about in published articles for years, only to be ridiculed by those in the press.

    Now you know where we stand.

    Unfortunately, I no longer believe that we will take back our freedoms and our government through peaceful means such as elections or legislation. I fear that a time is coming and is now come, that this battle to defend our God-Given Natural rights will become brutal and bloody.

    I pray that I'm wrong, but if I'm right, God be with us all!

    In my experience, the easiest way to dispel the myth of the omniscient doctor is to just make friends with one, or even just interact with one in a social situation.

    All it took for me was dealing with enough of them and getting shitty medical advice from them.

    Consider that this board boldly states that strong men are harder to kill and you are interested in trying that as a lifestyle. You wake up in an emergency room to be told you have a brain tumor and will have surgery in a few hours. And brutal treatments for a year. You have some tools that allow you to ask intelligent question. They ask you questions too and eventually you have the conversation about survival. They assure you that most estimates are based on frail and sickly individuals so they don’t really apply to you. They encourage real strength training before during and after treatment as lean body mass is what you want in reserve so chemo and radiation can efficiently work and you have plenty in the bank to survive. You are harder to kill. The Drs don’t see many like you but they know you know something and ask YOU for information.

    You are proud that you made some good choices and are confident to avoid the nonsense.

    Just food for thought.
    This reminds me of the kid that was working for us earlier in the year. It also makes me think, “why would they get rid of them; they go along with everything?”

    Yeah..... Covid free, because everyone took ivermectin and died.
    Pretty sure our North American drs all say ivermectin is really bad and dangerous, and only for horse parasites. There’s no way all these smart drs could be wrong, or not have our best interest in mind. There’s definitely no way a drug could work on something other than what it was meant for.
    Without a doubt it’s better to die with the deadly Covid than risk killing yourself with ivermectin.

    This is a tough sell when one has literally decades of experience dealing with them.
    I won't really go into the issues with Coumadin. Every relative that's ever been put on the stuff died shortly after to the point my great-grandmother refused it. She lived to be in her late 80's most of it active and in high heels, bless her heart. Much longer than anyone else in the family.
    I was diagnosed with CIDP years ago. Had I followed the docs orders and stayed on the 13 different meds they put me on, I'd have no life. I'd likely be using a walker or a wheelchair by now. I definitely wouldn't be able to hold a job. Instead, I listened to the strength coach and while I have my difficult days, I have a life. I'm active. I'm still on my feet. I'm doing better than any of the others that were/are in the support group I joined shortly after diagnosis. Today I am on one medication for the thyroid condition that I've had all my life. I spend about 4 bucks a month on that, sans insurance. This doesn't touch on the shitty/dumbass doc experiences I had in childhood or childbirth or the ones my husband had. Look, you get shot yeah you need someone trained to get that bullet out. But if you have any ability to stay away from hospitals and medical people you should. They don't make money off of well people. I realize young George here is trying to insult us but the gap between his inherent trust of the authority figures and our real life experience isn't one he can bridge. But his posts should teach us something about compliance and how the people we are looking at -- wondering how they are just falling in line -- view the authorities.

    The more interesting question is why exactly ivermectin is so efficient. I doubt it will ever get investigated even by independent thinkers in the west, since even the well meaning people have their hands tied by following the useless scientific method with double blind tests and shit. Let us hope the Indian media works on this some more.

    The text mentions how the state of Kerala, which does not use ivermectin properly but is pushing the vaccines hard, is seeing many more cases than states that use the ivermectin protocols. Kerala is run by the communist party, it implemented all the typical WHO/NWO guidelines, so it has been a favorite in western media. Of course, the current line is that their case load is “a mystery”, but they somehow have the infection “under control” because of mass testing and contact tracing and rolling lockdowns, unlike the other poor states in India, which have to contend with just no infections at all. It is a good bit of comedy. Check it out, the BBC for instance:
