Update! In an unexpected turn of events, FBI uncovers terror motive
Courtesy of SDA regular, `Dumb Biker` we get some very good news from the State of Virginia.
Glenn Youngkin, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares will be sworn in today, marking a sea-change of leadership in Virginia. More importantly, because actions ultimately matter, the three Republicans are already looking to take big steps toward fixing the mess left behind by Democrat Ralph Northam’s administration.
Virginia Governor Youngkin Signs 11 Executive Actions on His First Day in Office
Glenn Youngkin, Virginia’s first Republican Governor in more than a decade, wasted no time addressing his campaign pledges, signing nine executive orders and two executive directives. Within hours of being sworn in, Youngkin:
1. Banned the use of CRT and other inherently divisive concepts in schools;
2. Ended school mask mandates;
3. Terminated the entire Parole Board of the Commonwealth of Virginia (all were Democratic appointees);
4. Initiated an investigation into Loudoun County;
5. Established the position of Chief Transformation Officer to review all government agencies, beginning with the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Virginia Employment Commission;
6. Declared Virginia open for business and initiated a review of burdensome Covid regulations;
7. Established a commission prevent human trafficking and provide support to survivors;
8. Established a commission to combat antisemitism;
9. Withdrew from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI);
10. Directed all Executive Branch entities to reduce job-killing regulations by at least 25 percent;
11. Rescinded the vaccine mandate for all state employees.
“Meanwhile, new Attorney General Jason Miyares (who was also just sworn in) has terminated the entire Civil Rights Division of the AG’s Office (many of them Soros backed lawyers). YOWZA! 🤪
That was a MASS firing within a few moments of being sworn in. The MSM are calling it ‘insane’ and ‘mean.’
AG Miyares also warned all county prosecutors he will be pursuing charges for crimes they refuse to file charges for themselves. This is a warning to local VA DAs not to do what NY’s DA is doing.
Investors are suing a Biden-backed solar energy company that received a $500 million federal loan last month, claiming the company lied to shareholders about the effectiveness and financial viability of its solar modules.
A Michigan municipal pension fund alleges that executives at First Solar, which is owned by Biden megadonor and Walmart heir Lukas Walton, made “false and misleading statements” to investors and failed to disclose that its solar module was “grossly underperforming and was unable to hit its wattage targets.” Those claims and omissions, the fund alleges, artificially inflated the company’s stock price in 2019 and led to investor losses.
Hear my prayer.
Keep hearing of train burglaries in LA on the scanner so went to #LincolnHeights to see it all. And… there’s looted packages as far as the eye can see. Amazon packages, @UPS boxes, unused Covid tests, fishing lures, epi pens. Cargo containers left busted open on trains. @CBSLA pic.twitter.com/JvNF4UVy2K

I don’t understand why the GOP doesn’t seize on this and make it the centerpiece of a national campaign ad. Check out the rest of the thread.
Biden Administration, last 24 hours:
— 7% inflation
— 33% approval rating for Biden
— Sinema reaffirmed filibuster supporter
— Supreme Court struck down vaccine mandate

There IS justice in America:
On Thursday afternoon, the Supreme Court weighed in on Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees. The Court ruled with a 6-3 margin to strike down the OSHA mandate for businesses with more than 100 employees, but it did allow the mandate for federally funded healthcare agencies with a 5-4 vote.
The conclusion on the per curium brief in favor of striking down the mandate concluded that OSHA’s powers are limited to regulating the workplace, yet COVID-19 affects more than just the workplace, which means that the pandemic falls outside of OSHA’s purview.
Addendum (from Kate): The Biden White House might want to take the Twitter away from Klain for a while.
Bad approval ratings, two-dozen Democratic retirements, and nothing to run on is a recipe for a wipeout year. So, how can Democrats turn things around? Pass a compromised spending bill that can get bipartisan support, clamp down on criminal illegal aliens, get saner about COVID? Nope. They’re looking to …Hillary Clinton for salvation in 2024
Language warning but well worth a watch:
Canada continues to accept living under the dictatorship of the country’s first black prime minister. However in the States the battle for democracy continues. Conrad Black on the Democratic media alliance.
Despite virtue-signaling that all the good people remain locked down in the leftist epicenters of COVID restriction; and despite saying that anyone who does not adhere to the rules and regulations of the lockdown are being selfish; Ms. AOC was recently noted partying maskless without social distancing in Miami, Florida.
Not to worry, a couple of doses of Nyquil and some rest, and AOC will be ready for booster shot number four in no time.
On January 6th, 2022, “Vice-President” Kamala Harris spat on the memories of the thousands killed at Pearl Harbor, New York City, Arlington, and Somerset County, Pennsylvania – all to make a cheap political point.
From this day, let there be a new word in the English dictionary:
Ka•mal•a’d – noun – To have your memory, or that of a beloved friend or family friend, dismissed as utterly unimportant and worthless, simply so that a vindictive, evil person can make a cheap political point.
Brett Weinstein and his wife, Heather, offer a lot of facts here … very uncomfortable facts that go against The Narrative so watch this before it’s removed:
As questions mount about the government’s animating role in the Capitol protest on January 6, the criminal case against the men charged with conspiring to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020 continues to collapse.
Defense attorneys in the Whitmer case are carefully compiling evidence that depicts an elaborate tale of FBI entrapment; at least a dozen FBI informants were involved in the failed plot—equaling one FBI asset per defendant. FBI agents handling the informants directed every move. They funded training and reconnaissance trips, and even organized a “national militia” conference in Ohio in June 2020 to lure potential accomplices. […]
If the prosecution completely falls apart either before March or during trial, the outcome would deliver a huge blow to the already collapsing narrative about January 6. The two events are inextricably tied with numerous intersections—not the least of which is that the head of the FBI’s Detroit field office, Steven D’Antuono, was promoted to run the FBI field office in Washington, D.C., one week after the arrests in the Whitmer plot were announced.
That’s the same FBI office running the bureau’s Capitol investigation.
If the Whitmer trial proceeds, even without the caper’s top FBI masterminds, it would provide an illuminating backdrop to the first trials of January 6 defendants in 2022. Was Operation Cold Snap the launching pad for both the Whitmer plot and the Capitol protest?
