Is Sweden Hiding the Ball?
(zerohedge) Why would Sweden share their findings with the Russians? Whether or not Sweden joins NATO or not (because of Turkey) is not the point. Russia is a hostile neighbor.
In September 2022, leaks were found in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, leaks that were caused by explosions that Sweden investigated.
Sweden’s investigation concluded it was likely the result of “serious sabotage”, and now Russia is complaining that Sweden won’t share its findings.
Last year, Russia accused the UK Navy of being involved in the explosions that put the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines out of commission.
Small Moves – but Good Moves
Schiff, Swalwell, Omar Exorcised like Foul Imps
(h/t J.C. Wright) Schiff abused his position by lying about confidential material to the public when he claimed he had seen evidence of Trump being a Russian collaborator; Omar is an anti-Semite and enemy of the nation; Swalwell was copulating with a Chinese spy named Fang Fang. His weakness is perhaps understandable, but why he was not removed from his sensitive position is not.
Some ask: why two fangs? Vampires are said to have two fangs. Maybe that’s the answer…maybe not.
Ironically, it was not their obvious incapacity to be entrusted with this committee position that prompted their ouster. This is retaliation for the Democrats’ violation of the norms of the House when they ousted GOP members from committee seats for partisan reasons: and, it must be said, well-merited and proportionate retaliation.
IRS Thugs Defunded
This funding was to supply some 87,000 armed IRS agents whose main mission would have been to harass the self-employed, the small business owners, and other middle-class marks without much power in Washington.
The move is symbolic, as the Senate will not pass, nor will the usurper sign. Nonetheless, a good first bill to pass.
New Church Committee
A committee modeled after the famous Frank Church committee to investigate abuses by law enforcement and intelligence services carrying out secret operations on US soil against US citizens, including mass censorship of the media and social media, widespread domestic spying, and (we hope) interference with elections will be empaneled.
To Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) will chair. Members may include Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.).
Long overdue. Merely hearing the Leftist whine and stamp their wee feet at the prospect is delicious in its perfect hypocrisy.
Babies Born Alive Bill Passes House
This is purely symbolic. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act will be killed in the Senate. What is significant is that Every Republican voted yea, while every Democrat except for one (The Honorable Henry Cuellar – TX) voted nay.
Good to have that on public record.”
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works”. —Revelations 20:12
HR 26 – This bill establishes requirements for the degree of care a healthcare practitioner must provide in the case of a child born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion.
Again, it is incomprehensible to me that this madness ever gripped any civilized nation, much less that this is a matter for serious debate. Every Democrat in the House voted nay. Kill the babies, they said. Openly. Publicly. Without any excuse or possible argument to misdirect their meaning, no woman’s rights nor woman’s health to hide behind.
Again, it seems to be evil for evil’s sake.
Select Committee on Communist China
As a fan and follower of Frank Gaffney’s Committee on the Clear and Present Danger from China for many a moon, to me the empaneling of a congressional committee to investigate Chinese cold war acts is a small step in the right direction.
