2024 No More Trump, No More Biden


This independent voter wants to know why politicians have classified documents in their homes, cars, storage facilities and offices.  Presidents Trump and Biden, as well as Vice President Pence, have all had classified documents where they should not have been.  

Both political teams look stupid defending their guys while attacking the opposite team for doing likewise.

A second area where political parties suck is government ethics.  The Red Team defended President Donald Trump's cash franchise Trump Hotel in downtown D.C.  

The glittering Trump International Hotel housed and entertained numerous Republican officials, candidates and lawmakers throughout the Trump presidency, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Once Trump sold the hotel the Red Team took their money elsewhere:

An Insider examination of FEC records show that the GOP has spent just under $2,000 there since Trump handed over the lease. That accounted for the hotel stays of four Republicans, including Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert.

That's a far cry from the at least $670,000 spent by GOP officials, candidates and PACs at the hotel throughout the same five-month period in 2018 — not including revenue from bars and restaurants (including these, CREW placed the total spend at $867,000).

Both periods cover the busy midterm campaign seasons for their respective years.

The Blue Team expressed concern over wealthy citizens or foreign governments spending money at the Trump hotel to influence White House policy.  The Red Team personally enriched Trump via his D.C. hotel.

Now that Joe Biden is in the White House  that same concern could apply Hunter Biden's art.  A former White House ethics official raised concerns about this arrangement.  

Former President Obama's ethics chief Walter Shaub ripped into the first son's art venture last year during an appearance on Law & Crime’s "Objections" podcast.

"There is simply no way an artist who has never even juried into a community center art fair is going to suddenly show up in New York selling art for half a million a pop," Shaub said. "Let's talk about the magnitude of this. . . . That’s $6.5 million going to the president’s son for being the president’s son, not for being an artist, and I just think that’s absolutely appalling."

Can Donald Trump and Joe Biden take their improperly stored classified documents and challenged ethics and please leave come 2024?  Please.

Update:  Facebook and Instagram aren't helping Trump go away.

Update 1-26-23:  A conservative columnist said Trump is “ranting like a deranged hobo in a dilapidated public park.”

Update 1-27-23:  New Hampshire leaders for the Insane Red Team want Trump to go away, at least 70% would like that to happen.

NRCC Stops Updating Santos' Lying Bios

The National Republican Congressional Committee tried to scrub Representative elect George Santos bio information on the NRCC website.  On December 27th the NRCC dropped the bio with Santos professional lies in favor of a patriotic 9-11 version with Santos mother in the Twin Towers when they were attacked.

Santos mother was not in the United States on 9-11-2001, causing the NRCC to drop Santos bio altogether.  He's now just a face with a weblink. 

NRCC leaders knew about and helped promote George Santos fraudulent information.  Santos and the NRCC are black holes for truth.  

That means another agenda is at hand.  A fake greed and leverage boy is there to protect the real ones.  Politicians Red and Blue love PEU (private equity underwriters) and increasing, more are one.

Update 1-26-23:  Santos filed amended campaign finance reports indicating huge loans did not come from his personal funds.  They identified a new treasurer who said he refused that role and did not sign any documents.

Independent Voter Disgusted

The George Santos fraud continues to be revealed.  It seems that Santos lies repeat throughout his campaign in fractal form.  His lies appear at nearly every level of view.

A Vice Chair for the National Republican Congressional Committee acted like Santos perpetrated his fraudulent campaign without their assistance.  

“It’s very clear his entire resume and life was manufactured until a couple days ago, when he finally changed his website.”

The NRCC foisted Santos' lies on the voting public via its website, which got revised on December 27, 2022.  

“Senior House Republicans were apparently aware of the inaccuracies and embellishments in the member-elect’s resume, and the topic became a 'running joke.'"

Now the House of Representatives plans to wash away all of George Santos' frauds, perpetrated in conjunction with Senior House Republicans.  

The Insane Red Team has accountability in name only.  Until that changes, they will not get this independent voter to support any of their candidates.  

George Santos is a "gone too far" moment for representative democracy.  The Red Team should police itself, but that capability is long gone.  It left when sanity fled the party.

Update 1-20-23:  The NRCC updated their information on George Santos after immigration records showed Santos' mother was not in the United States on 9-11-2001.  Therefore she could not have been in the Twin Towers.

Gay Brazilian Cracker Congressman


Fraudster George Santos found staff willing to work for an unethical Congressman.

Santos hired “fixer” Viswanag Burra, a former aide to Steve Bannon and producer of Bannon’s “War Room” podcast. 
Burra is also the executive secretary of the New York Young Republicans club, which drew headlines for its president saying at a recent gala that he wanted “total war” and pledged to “do battle...in the streets.”.  

Which also explains why Santos flashed the Cracker symbol used by White Supremacists.  It's the latest window into the Insane Red Team.

Update 1-12-23:  Rep. George Santos may not be a real PEU after all.   Ethically he stinks but he may only be a PEU wannabee.  Santos made it into the realm where connected people push copious amounts of cash around to one another.

Update 1-14-22:  Video shows George Santos introducing himself as Anthony Devolder in 2019.  Santos is reflective of societal ills.  One columnist attributed his rise to a lack of local investigative reporting.  Another said:

(Santos) lies are the product of a political system that incentivizes dishonesty, punishes sincerity and is rife with opportunities for petty crooks. In that sense, Santos is the politician that we deserve.

I would offer Santos is there to serve the PEU class.  Politicians Red and Blue love PEU and increasingly, more are one.  Fraudster Santos is there to save PEU preferred "carried interest" taxation, get a regulatory format in place for crypto and steer Uncle Sam's wallet to the greed and leverage boys, as well as his personal pocketbook.  

Update 1-19-23:   A story revealed George Santos participated in drag queen events in Brazil  How'd he go from firecracker to plain cracker?

Update 1-22-23:  Santos admitted he'd been "young and had fun at a festival" when shown pictures of him at a drag queen contest.

Cheater of the House


Elected officials fail to realize that independent voters want Congress to cease being an ethical cesspool.  The Insane Red team is going in the other direction.

Time reported on Kevin McCarthy's pursuit of the Speaker of the House:

.... buried in the text was another provision that could be highly consequential for the new Congress being sworn in on Tuesday: language that would effectively gut the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), as the independent panel faces pressure to investigate lawmakers who participated in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Most significantly, McCarthy’s proposal would require OCE to hire its staff for the 118th Congress within 30 days of the resolution’s adoption, a requirement that sources familiar with the process tell TIME would make it exceedingly difficult for the office to have the resources it needs to conduct its investigations, given how long it takes to hire candidates for roles in the federal government. The proposal would also block OCE from hiring new employees over the next two years if someone leaves their position, sources say.

“Republicans get to take control of the House, and on their first day in Congress, they are not trying to take a hammer to the OCE—they’re being a little smarter about it—but they’re taking a scalpel to it,” a Hill source familiar with the ethics process tells TIME.

A former Chair of the House Ethics Committe was recently the lobbyist for FTX.  This says something about the Insane Red Team and their Blue Lucy counterparts.

Update 1-3-23:  The House cannot do business until a Speaker is selected.   The Insane Red Team failed to do so in three rounds of voting today.  It's not a shutdown but a failure to launch.

Update 1-7-23:  Kevin McCarthy won Speaker of the House in the 15th ballot after negotiating with extreme members of the his Insane Red Team.  One House member astutely observed:

“We would have won more seats in 2022 but too many feared the extremes in the GOP even before this.”

Many of those same extreme Insane Red Team members had their hands in the Jan. 6th insurrection, which saw its second anniversary yesterday.  Insane with no shame...portends poorly for our country.

Update 1-9-23:  Newly elected Insane Red Rep. Cory Mills joked about the criminal attack on Paul Pelosi.  

The Insane Reds will likely cause great financial harm to the U.S. over the debt limit come summer.

The specter of default, of missing payments and shaking faith in the United States, hangs over all debt ceiling debates

Update 1-16-23:   House Speaker Kevin McCarthy played a role in pushing the George Santos con on New York voters.  

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) admitted Monday he “always had a few questions” about the resume of Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.)

McCarthy's right hand man Dan Conston was aware of the fraud.  It's nice that boss McCarthy admitted that he knew as well.

Insane Red's George Santos is Blatant Fraudster


Rep. elect George Santos (Red Team-New York) said he graduated from college, worked at several storied Wall Street firms, owned thirteen properties and was Jewish.  None of it is true.  Zero.

Santos called it "resume embellishment" but it might as well be "political puffery." His handlers knew Santos was selling bullshit.

Senior House Republicans were apparently aware of the inaccuracies and embellishments in the Rep.-elect’s resume, and the topic became a “running joke,” multiple insiders close to House GOP leadership told The Post over the weekend.

“As far as questions about George in general, that was always something that was brought up whenever we talked about this race,” said one senior GOP leadership aide. “It was a running joke at a certain point. This is the second time he’s run and these issues we assumed would be worked out by the voters.

Worked out by voters?  Did not Senior House Republicans have a duty to inform the electorate of Santos' lies?  Worse, the NRCC helped perpetrate his fraud on the public.

Will the Insane Red Team seat this fraudster?  Of course they will.  

This is grotesque, just like the PEU greed that pervades our hallowed halls of government.  Who better to support false PEU asset values than a Congressman elect with a completely fabricated personal history?

This story shows the arrogance of the Insane Reds and their contempt for the U.S. voter.  Rest assured independent voters were conned by this shape shifting power seeker.  They should sue the NRCC for fraud, that is an American vote has any intrinsic value.

Update 12-27-22:  The NRCC scrubbed Santos bio.  He blamed the elite media for his lies.  It's the Insane Red Team.  

The Forward reported on the man who now says he is "Jew-ish.":

...in a position paper shared with Jewish and pro-Israel leaders during the campaign and obtained by the Forward, Santos called himself “a proud American Jew.” 

In the two-page document that the Santos campaign shared earlier this year with pro-Israel groups, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Santos also claimed to “have been to Israel numerous times from educational, business, and leisurely trips.” A brief search of his social media accounts found no images or documentation of his alleged trips to Israel.

It's more than bad form.  It's fraudulent.   Santos is no longer welcome at any Republican Jewish Coalition events.

Update 1-1-23:  Rep. Kevin Brady (Red Team- TX) said:

Santos could be forgiven by the GOP for owning up to the false statements and that it wasn’t up to the party to punish Santos.

The party is complicit in perpetrating the fraud.  It's up to the Red Team to admit their creation and sponsorship of a political fraud.   

Update 1-4-23:  Politico reported last week:

....it’s been crickets. The NYT and CNN this week reached out to leadership offices and the NRCC for comment. There were no responses.

Santos had a lonely day in a crowded House chamber yesterday. 

His new office was once occupied by N.Y. Rep. Chris Collins who was convicted of insider trading in early 2020.   A Trump pardon got Collins out of jail.  A House staffer called the situation like "being in a cartoon."

Update 1-5-23:  Even Santos housing picture is unclear.  Is the new Congressman elect a millionaire or a deadbeat renter?  I hope he actually lives in his House District.

New York Rep-elect George Santos reportedly does not appear to have an office or staff in his district. 

Update 1-6-23:  It appears voters will not get information from Insane Red Team leaders as to how the George Santos fraud was perpetrated.

Update 1-8-23:  Santos is a fraud and worked for a ponzi scheme.  He's the perfect elected official to reveal our ethically broken Congress.  Institutional Risk Analyst reported:

The question is how state and federal regulators, as well as elected officials in both political parties, did not see that the entire construct of crypto currency was at best a form of money laundering and at worse outright fraud.

Update 1-14-22:  Video shows George Santos introducing himself as Anthony Devolder in 2019.  Santos is reflective of societal ills.  One columnist attributed his rise to a lack of local investigative reporting.  Another said:

(Santos) lies are the product of a political system that incentivizes dishonesty, punishes sincerity and is rife with opportunities for petty crooks. In that sense, Santos is the politician that we deserve.

I would offer Santos is there to serve the PEU class.  Politicians Red and Blue love PEU and increasingly, more are one.  Fraudster Santos is there to save PEU preferred "carried interest" taxation, get a regulatory format in place for crypto and steer Uncle Sam's wallet to the greed and leverage boys, as well as his personal pocketbook.

World Cup Shockers


Thugs with resources win.

Update 12-1-22:  YahooSports reported:

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sitting next to FIFA president Gianni Infantino at the opening game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, when his team was not playing, has fueled speculation that the kingdom wants to host the 2030 World Cup. Rumors of a joint bid with Egypt and Greece are swirling.

Update 12-6-22:   The U.S. court case against the Crown Prince was dismissed under the guise of sovereign immunity, something the Prince did not have at the time of the execution.  The judge said his hands were tied by the Biden administration's recommendation to the court.  Thugs win.

Update 12-16-22:  FIFA declined the offer from Ukrainian President Zelensky to speak to the world.  Saudi Arabia came to mind as a possible interloper that might prefer Ukraine silenced.  Soccer may follow golf as the next sportswash for the Crown Prince.

Update 12-18-22:  Trophy CEOs Jared Kushner and Elon Musk were at the final match.
