The World According to Mike Pence

Jeffrey A. Tucker

By: Jeffrey A. Tucker

Im mostly interested in Mike Pence’s book So Help Me God for what he says about the experience of Covid controls, for this is what wrecked the administration he served. That will be my focus in what follows but let me first address what everyone is right now thinking: how could anyone give their autobiography such a self-serving filiopietistic title?

I don’t have the answer but he certainly leans in. He must have hired an editor to sprinkle the text as much as possible with Bible verses and other invocations of his deep connection to transcendent concerns, all of which serves as a helpful cover for what he actually did.

And what did he do? From the Birx book, the Kushner book, the WashPo book, and every other of the insider accounts we have so far, he provided cover to Anthony Fauci, Deborah Birx, and Robert Redfield in their drive to convince Trump of lockdown orders, and then protected the lockdown crew in their national drive to push controls long after Trump had lost the faith. Later, he stuck the knife in deeper and then bailed.

We know that this is true now from his own account. To be sure, his main theme is that the Trump administration, thanks to him and his spiritual maturity, did most everything correct in 2020. Then the Biden administration showed up and messed everything up using a “top-down” and public-sector approach that the Trump administration rejected. This is a brazenly partisan take at multiple levels.

As he summarizes:

We reinvented testing from a standing start, produced and distributed billions of pieces of personal protective equipment, and manufactured tens of thousands of ventilators. In nine short months we developed three safe and effective vaccines; when we left office in January 2021, we were vaccinating a million Americans a day. Together, we saved millions of lives in the greatest national mobilization since World War II. It took all of us, the whole of government, the whole of America. But we did it. Only in America.

There is no evidence, obviously, of this claim that “we saved millions of lives,” but I’ve come to expect this sort of language. “Saved millions of lives” has become a rhetorical stand-in for: please do not criticize my appalling failure. And by the way, the line “Only in America” is deployed constantly throughout the book but this too is ridiculous. The lockdowns and deployment of other NPIs were global in scope. He surely knows this so the phrase is just more self-serving jingoism, which he must assume plays to his potential voting base.

He claims, of course, that the decision to block China was his idea and Trump went along with it:

If this virus, covid-19, was pouring out of China, we had to try to cut off its ability to reach us. I sensed, though, how unprecedented and likely subject to wide-ranging criticism doing that would be. As the conversation in the Oval Office reached its conclusion, for the president’s benefit, I asked members of the task force, “Has any president in American history ever suspended all travel from another country?” The answer was no. Trump sat back in his chair, pondered all that he had heard, and made a decision: the United States would temporarily suspend all travel from China.

Goodness, how could he have been so smart and far-seeing?

What gave me confidence was that I had been a governor and had gone through two different health crises, one including the first MERS case in the United States and the other an HIV/AIDS epidemic in a small Indiana town. I had seen firsthand how the state and federal governments could work together during a health crisis. I understood and readily accepted the challenge.

Oh, and also God and country was at his side:

I stood up, walked out of the Oval Office, headed down the hallway, and pulled the team together in my West Wing office for my first meeting as head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Not knowing what lay ahead, we bowed our heads and opened that first meeting in prayer. From that moment a seriousness settled on me that was nothing short of God’s grace. I didn’t know what was ahead, but I knew America would rise to the occasion.

Also Pence rescued Americans from a cruise ship. I kid you not. This is what he believes. Can you even imagine? Here you are on a delightful cruise and a flu starts going around. Too bad but hey people get sick. Stay on the upper deck and get some sun! Then the helicopters arrive to “rescue” you when you are merely trying to enjoy a vacation. Here is Pence’s account of his own heroics:

As other nations shut down travel in February, almost ninety-five thousand Americans were left stranded abroad. The task force launched a rescue mission to bring them home safely. A number of Americans who were unable to get back home were on cruise ships. … The task force launched a complicated mission to evacuate the passengers, many of them elderly and vulnerable. We coordinated with air force bases in California, Texas, and Nebraska to receive the passengers, who had to be safely transported off the ship and into quarantine on the bases.

You know, that sounds kind of like kidnapping or hostage-taking or something. I doubt seriously that the passengers appreciated being “rescued” in such a way only to be forcibly quarantined. All of this speaks to something extremely strange about these days, the conflation of an infectious-disease outbreak with a military operation requiring martial law and extreme invasions of liberty and property.

As Debbie Lerman has proven, this is exactly what happened. Sorry to say but Pence, knowingly or not, was at the center of it. As even he says, “It was important, then, to have not just public health and national security officials involved in the decision-making…”

Pence further takes credit for solving the testing debacle. Birx was running around freaking out that we needed millions and billions of tests, else everyone would die. Pence stepped up with his astonishing leadership skills:

Thirty minutes later, the CEOs of America’s biggest testing companies were all on the line, including Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. We explained the testing crisis and made it clear that we wanted the industry to work together. I told them that the pharmaceutical companies would have to create a consortium to work together to develop medicines and vaccines and I wanted the diagnostic companies to do the same. They were eager to help and said they would discuss it in a meeting of the industry to take place the next day. “Can you all be at the White House later this week?” I asked. They all said yes, they would be there. I hung up. Birx was in disbelief. “How did you do that?” she asked. “Welcome to the White House,” I said.

Wow, such drama! What happened next?

I told them, “Make as many tests as quick as you can, and the federal government will buy them from you. Make a billion a month if you can.” And with that we launched an effort to redesign testing.

Yes, you can roll your eyes.

Also, Pence is the reason we had so many masks! He was campaigning around the country when God spoke to him:

As I was thinking about the nation’s supply of personal protective equipment, I realized that Minnesota was home to 3M, which happens to be the nation’s largest producer of masks. It was God’s timing. I asked Birx and Stephen Hahn, the director of the FDA, to come along. We got onboard Air Force Two and landed in Minnesota on our way to Seattle.

What a man! Then what happened?

I knew [CEO Roman] Walz from Congress—we had been in the House together—and our governorships had overlapped. I asked them how 3M could increase its production of masks. Roman explained that the company produced 35 million masks a month, but only 10 percent were for hospital use; all the rest were for construction workers. “But are they essentially the same mask?” I asked. The answer was yes. “Great, then, can we just purchase those for hospital use?” No, I was told, the masks had not been approved for medical use by the FDA. The company could be sued if they were used in hospitals. “What’s the answer here?” I asked. Roman explained that if 3M could be afforded legal protection by Congress, we could sell them across the country. So after the meeting ended, I grabbed Walz by the elbow. I told him he would have to call Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer—Congress was quickly putting together a covid emergency bill—and tell them we needed the Democratic leaders to put language into a bill that would provide temporary protection for companies such as 3M to sell their masks for medical use, which he did. With that reform alone we went from having 3 million N95 masks available to 20 million when Trump signed the bill a week later.

A better savior for the country one cannot imagine! And yet he was more than just an incredibly competent testing and mask master. He was also a spiritual counselor to the president’s son-in-law!

Shortly after I took over the task force, Jared Kushner approached me. He told me he was dropping everything he was working on to help me in whatever way I needed…. Two weeks in, on the evening of Sunday, March 15, he called me. When I heard his voice on the other end, I could tell he was discouraged about the challenges we were facing in ramping up testing, getting enough medical supplies distributed, and coordinating that effort at the ground level. “We can’t do this from the White House,” he confessed. “It’s too much, we will never be able to meet the needs.” “You want me to make you feel better?” I asked, not even waiting for his answer. “We don’t have to,” I said. “The framers of the Constitution gave us a system of fifty CEOs leading states across the country.… We just need to make sure they have what they need, and they will get it done.” To that, he sighed in relief, saying, “I hadn’t thought of it that way,” adding, “You know what? You’re right!”

Is there no problem this man cannot solve? The answer is obviously no, if we are to believe his autobiographical account.

He further proves this on the subject of ventilators, which he knew from his extensive experience in hospital therapeutics that we desperately needed.

When it came to the matter of the nation’s ventilator supply, we faced another shortage with dire consequences. In severe cases of covid, the patients’ lungs become so inflamed that they can no longer deliver oxygen to the bloodstream. Ventilators provided a lifeline to the lungs while patients fought off the virus. The Strategic National Stockpile hadn’t been refilled since the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009, and at the outset of the year, we had ten thousand ventilators on hand. It wasn’t nearly enough. In the first few weeks, we had requests for fifty-five thousand ventilators from the states. If there was anything that kept me up at night, it was the idea that any American who needed a ventilator could be denied a ventilator.

All you widows out there whose husbands were vented to death in those days – we might be talking many thousands – are surely comforted to know that Pence lost sleep worrying that there weren’t enough. And you can predict the ending of the ventilator vignette: Pence got the ventilators we supposedly needed but actually did not.

As for his relationship with Fauci, it was tight. He has no words of criticism at all.

And I was glad [Fauci] was there. He was a reassuring voice to the public; Mitch McConnell had advised me, correctly, that Fauci would be a valuable member of the team because of his stature. He and Dr. Birx had known each other for years; they had almost a mentor and mentee relationship. Fauci played an invaluable role in helping the president and our team understand the true scope of the threat… I always worked well with Tony, as he was keen to stay in his own important lane. He offered his expertise and advice, but in all our dealings he always recognized that there were economic and social factors to consider in the president’s decisions. I never thought his role was to lead the government’s response to the pandemic or be its point person, and neither did he.

That takes us to the lockdowns. Here is Pence’s justification:

By the second week of March 2020, with cases on the rise in several major cities and the threat of an outbreak that could overwhelm our health care system, the task force took a plan to the president, developed by Fauci and Birx, to shut down much of the US economy for two weeks. We called it “15 Days to Slow the Spread.” It was a mitigation tactic driven by the knowledge that the virus was extremely contagious. The president urged citizens who could stay home to do so and to avoid interacting with others, and temporarily shut down huge parts of the economy, other than businesses and workers deemed essential. Ramping up testing, bolstering the nation’s supplies of medical equipment, and getting it all to the states was an effort to save our medical system from collapsing under the weight of the virus. The goal of the so-called lockdown was never to stop the spread of the virus; it was to slow it to buy time for the US health care system while its innovators got to work producing supplies and developing a medical arsenal.

Incredible, because none of this is true. The medical system was never collapsing. Hundreds of hospitals furloughed nurses because the hospitals emptied out! This is because the Trump administration issued nationwide orders to reserve hospitals for Covid patients while blocking all diagnostics and elective surgeries. But of course we don’t hear a word of this from Pence’s book.

How does he justify having a central government under an effective dictatorship issuing a nationwide edict that closed all places where people congregate? It was an incredible and totalitarian dictate. Pence simply says the following: “I believe in limited government; I am not anti-government.”

Oh. And here, so far as he was concerned, government was merely doing what it is supposed to do.

Of course, it was never going to end in two weeks. Pence tells the story:

They informed us that if we failed to keep the mitigation in place for another thirty days, up to 2.2 million Americans could die before the year was out. The graph presented two waves, the worst-case scenario in dark blue, the “if we do everything right” outcome in light blue. The former looked like a mountain; the latter was significantly smaller but still heartbreaking in size. The president digested it all for a quiet moment. It was another hard decision, but he made it. On March 31, we presented the chart to the American people and extended the 15 Days to Slow the Spread protocol for another thirty days.

The pathology or stupidity here is simply astonishing! They looked at some bogus modeling chart with colors and decided to abolish the Bill of Rights for longer? Yep, that happened and Pence blessed it. So far as I can tell, Pence is not mortified but proud of this decision that ended up tanking the entire Trump presidency. “I know we saved millions of lives,” he says.

I know you are tired of this review already but I must share with you another virtue of Pence. He is also a blessed peacemaker:

In a weekend series of tweets, President Trump called [Michigan Governor] Gretchen “half Whitmer” and said she was “way over her head.” At a Monday press conference, Trump said he told me not to call “the woman in Michigan.” I called her. When I did, she said we had done a great job but she was going to keep pushing for more. I respectfully asked her to talk to me if she needed anything rather than take it to cable television. The next day, President Trump said he had had a “productive conversation” with Whitmer. Blessed are the peacemakers.

What about when the lockdowns were ending but sustained in many places? We know from the records that this was due to nationwide tours by Birx, Redfield, and Fauci who would show up in governors’ offices to urge them to keep schools closed, force everyone to wear masks, and otherwise ban large gatherings. By this time, Trump was fed up with that whole kabuki dance but his team had already gone rogue and tried to keep lockdowns going until November.

How in the world did they get away with this? Guess what? It was Pence and he admits it:

When our press briefings waned, I encouraged Birx and Redfield to visit the states and meet with governors and health officials. I believed that our role was to give our best counsel but respect the state leaders—which we did without fail.

I don’t even need to report that he is enormously proud of the vaccines too, even go so far as to report, without irony, that “they were both nearly 95 percent effective against contracting covid:”

To have two safe and effective vaccines available to the American people within nine months of the start of a pandemic was a medical miracle. While those research companies are to be commended, so, too, are the leaders of Operation Warp Speed, Moncef Slaoui and HHS assistant secretary Paul Mango, who shepherded the vaccines through the process in record time, and General Gus Perna, who worked with states and American companies such as FedEx to distribute the vaccine across the country before the year was out. The day we left office in 2021, we were vaccinating a million Americans a day. Only in America.

We can stop there and finish by observing that nothing in this book contradicts what we’ve learned over these two years, namely that Mike Pence served as both a carrier pigeon and protecting veil for the national security state that took over the country in March 2020. It was he who gave the okay to Birx’s subversions. It was he who assisted in convincing Trump of the lockdowns. It was he who pushed the panic that led to massive spending, overpurchases of masks and ventilators, he who pushed for the deployment of the Defense Production Act, and he who sent the Navy hospital ship to New York that went unused. And he not only defends all his actions but implies that they were all blessed by God.

And now he encourages us all to stand back in awe and, quite possibly, elect him as the next president. As Pence might say, only in America.

Merkel Pops Up to Make An Admission of Western Collusion Against Russia

Merkel Pops Up to Make An Admission of Western Collusion Against Russia


ER Editor: As always, we ask the question why this, why now?

***

We remind readers that the Maidan coup happened back in 2014, during the tenure of Neocon buddy, Barack Obama, in which western deep state operatives took over the Ukraine government, booting out their pro-Russian, duly elected leader, Viktor Yanukovych. Atrocities took place (think: the Odessa massacre of many people burned or violently killed inside the union building, trapped inside by people we can now confirm are a type of Nazi), as they continued to do in the Donbass region from that point on against pro-Russian Ukrainians. An estimated 14,000 Donbass residents were killed by government forces between 2014 and 2022 (approximate time frame), 10,000 of whom were civilians. The reaction of Donbass residents earlier this year to Putin going into Ukraine was ‘what took him so long?’

The Minsk Accords were meant to allow Donbass to be partitioned while still remaining in Ukraine, with some degree of self-governance and security for the citizens. None of the western governments who were signatories took any notice of them, of course.

Here we have Merkel suddenly popping up out of nowhere to give, principally, a career summary, disclosing one reason for why the theatre of the accords was permitted to happen in the process. Notice that what she admits to may give Russia grounds for an international tribunal (2nd RT article). Against her? Merkel, ever the seasoned veteran, understood this, of course.

***

What’s currently happening with Merkel? We offer this 4-minute video segment from a recent video file (no.29) by SG Anon (linked to below, around 20:20 to 24:00). Is Merkel’s admission in some way related to this alleged second arrest of her which, as SG notes, resembles that of Hillary Clinton‘s on September 10/11, 2016 (check the video). Alas, we have no way to verify these claims but offer them up as clues in a puzzle. We underscore the fact that the video footage screenshot below, shown in SG’s video file, comes from a 2020 video posted to Youtube and is not current. It matches SG’s first claim, that Merkel was first arrested by German military in the summer of 2020. However, SG is highly confident in stating that Merkel has once again been ‘detain[ed]’ in recent days. Once more, clues in a puzzle.

Merkel confirms Ukraine peace deal was a ploy

Minsk agreements gave Ukraine “valuable time” to “get stronger”, said former German chancellor

RT

The 2014 ceasefire brokered by Berlin and Paris in Minsk was an attempt to give Kiev time to strengthen its military and was successful in that regard, former German chancellor Angela Merkel argued in an interview published on Wednesday.

In an extensive interview about her 16 years in power, Merkel told Zeit magazine (ER: behind a paywall) her policy towards Russia and Ukraine was correct, even if not successful.

“I thought the initiation of NATO accession for Ukraine and Georgia discussed in 2008 to be wrong,” Merkel said. “The countries neither had the necessary prerequisites for this, nor had the consequences of such a decision been fully considered, both with regard to Russia’s actions against Georgia and Ukraine and to NATO and its rules of assistance.”

She described the September 2014 Minsk agreement as “an attempt to give Ukraine time.” France and Germany had brokered a ceasefire after the failure of Ukraine’s attempt to subdue the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk by force.

“[Ukraine] used this time to get stronger, as you can see today,” Merkel continued. “The Ukraine of 2014/15 is not the Ukraine of today. As you saw in the battle for Debaltsevo in early 2015, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin could easily have overrun them at the time. And I very much doubt that the NATO countries could have done as much then as they do now to help Ukraine.” (ER: And they have done precisely what except to get massive numbers of Ukrainian soldiers killed?)

The defeat at Debaltsevo resulted in the second Minsk protocol being signed in February 2015. Merkel said that it was “clear to all of us that the conflict was frozen, that the problem had not been solved, but that gave Ukraine valuable time.”

Meanwhile, she defended the decision to build the Nord Stream 2 pipeline for Russian gas, since refusing to do so would have “have dangerously worsened the climate” with Moscow given the situation in Ukraine. It just so happened that Germany couldn’t get gas elsewhere, she added.

Asked for any self-criticism, Merkel told Zeit that the Cold War never really ended because Russia was basically not at peace,” and that NATO “should have reacted more quickly to Russia’s aggressiveness” in 2014.

Pyotr Poroshenko, who became president of Ukraine after the 2014 US-backed coup in Kiev, told a domestic audience in August 2015 that Minsk was a ruse to buy time for a military build-up. He admitted as much to the West in July 2022, in an interview with German media.

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. The Kremlin recognized the Donbass republics as independent states, which have since voted to join Russia alongside with most of the regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye, and demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join any Western military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.

Merkel’s ‘confession’ may be grounds for tribunal – Moscow

The former chancellor gave evidence that the West had orchestrated hostilities in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry says

RT

A confession by former German chancellor Angela Merkel about the Minsk peace agreements could be used as evidence in a tribunal involving Western politicians responsible for provoking the Ukraine conflict between Moscow and Kiev, the Russian Foreign Ministry warned on Thursday.

The deal, brokered by Germany and France, was supposed to be a roadmap for peace in the war-torn country. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that his country’s current military offensive was prompted by the failure to implement the terms of the accords.

The former German leader admitted in an interview with Die Zeit on Wednesday that the actual purpose of the Minsk agreements was to give Ukraine time to prepare for a military confrontation with Russia.

“They talk a lot about legal assessments of what is happening around Ukraine, certain tribunals and so on in all sorts of ways,” Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said during a media briefing on Thursday. “But this is a specific reason for a tribunal.”

She claimed that Merkel’s comments were nothing short of the testimony of a person who had openly admitted that everything done between 2014 and 2015 was meant to “distract the international community from real issues, play for time, pump up the Kiev regime with weapons, and escalate the issue into a large-scale conflict,” Zakharova added.

She said Merkel’s statements “horrifyingly” reveal that the West uses “forgery as a method of action,” and resorts to “machinations, manipulation and all kinds of distortions of truth, law and rights imaginable.”

The spokeswoman claimed that the West had known well in 2015, when it spent hours negotiating the second part of the Minsk accords, that it would never even attempt to fulfill any part of the agreements and would instead pump weapons into Kiev.

“They did not feel sorry for anyone: women, children, the civilian population of Donbass or the whole of Ukraine. They needed a conflict and they were ready for it back then, in 2015,” Zakharova said. (ER: the violence meted out to Donbass residents, Ukrainian citizens, has been well-documented)

Earlier this month, a number of Western officials called for the creation of a special UN-backed court to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Russia during its ongoing military campaign in Ukraine.

The Kremlin has said the West has no legal or moral right to set up any courts to investigate or prosecute Russia over the conflict, which Moscow claims was ultimately provoked by the US and its allies.

How the ALP Decisively Won the State Election

Despite an overall swing against Victoria’s incumbent ALP, Daniel Andrews was comfortably returned to government, while the Liberals were routed.

Before the election, the ALP held 55 seats (a majority of 14) and the Coalition 27, Greens three, and two were held by independents.

Although the upper house remains undecided at the time of writing, the ALP and Coalition lower-house numbers are unlikely to change very much. The primary vote of both parties declined, but the Liberals are now below 30 per cent. Matthew Guy has resigned as leader.

The Nationals bolstered their numbers from six to nine seats, winning back two regional seats previously held by independents (Shepparton and Mildura) and winning Morwell, where the state government’s plan to shut down the state’s big coal-fired power plants will devastate jobs in the region.

Following their federal election successes, the teals challenged Liberals in several electorates, but are unlikely to win any state seats. Nor did any other independents win seats.

The Greens increased their vote in their inner-city-held seats, while taking Richmond from the ALP, giving them four lower-house seats… some on Liberal preferences. Also, they scored big swings in two other inner-city ALP-held city seats — Footscray 13 per cent and Pascoe Vale 20 per cent.

It is too early to predict the makeup of Victoria’s upper house.

Impervious

The Andrews Government was returned despite major scandals, controversies and damaging economic policies.

There was the cover-up of ALP branch-stacking, which took place under the Premier’s watch. There were radical social-engineering policies — virtually removing from the Equal Opportunity Act the freedom for faith-based schools to employ staff and enrol students of their choice and passing draconian anti-conversion therapy legislation with its attacks on parents, counsellors, health practitioners and ministers of religion.

Former senior state public servants accused Daniel Andrews of bypassing his own ministers and undermining the Westminster system of an independent public service, with the Premier’s Private Office and the Department of Premier and Cabinet between them employing a whopping 1,147 staff. A number of ministers resigned at this election.

There was Andrews’ large media unit that has brutally shut down critics of the Government.

There were repeated cover-ups by the Government around issues like the Premier’s personal role in hotel quarantine system failures.

Of major concern was the Government’s responsibility for rising gas and electricity prices – a consequence of its extreme green agenda and back-flips on policies like gas exploration.

Lame Opposition

In the face of these damning criticisms of the Government, the Liberals failed to offer any serious alternatives.

Matthew Guy did not address the surging cost-of-living pressures as a result of the Labor Government’s anti-coal and anti-gas agenda. To the contrary, Guy’s energy policy was in lockstep with that of the ALP.

His promise to vastly increase spending on public hospitals, when he had supported cuts to hospital funding when earlier in government, didn’t wash with the electorate.

In the absence of the Liberals having an economic development policy for the state, Andrews’ big-spending, questionable infrastructure resonated with voters, even though these policies will send the state deep into debt.

Further, the Liberals have largely supported the radical social agenda pushed by the Andrews Government, which has alienated many people of faith, schools and families. The Liberals’ deputy parliamentary leader, David Southwick, boasted how “the Victorian Liberals supported the Andrews Government in passing laws to outlaw Gay Conversion Therapy”.

The Liberals’ energy/climate and radical social engineering policies have deeply divided the party, already weakened with an ageing membership.

Is it little wonder that the Liberals barely dented the Andrews Government’s parliamentary majority?

If the new Liberal leadership compromises further on the radical secularist and renewable-energy agendas, the party will face an even lower first-preference vote in the future.

Demographic Factors

Other long-term factors are also playing out. First, ALP governments have continued the Kennett-era big spending on high-rise, high-density living in inner Melbourne, instead of regional Victoria. A survey of Melbourne’s population density by electorate shows that, as the population density of these electorates has soared, the vote has changed from ALP to the Greens.

Second, over recent decades, several government departments have enlarged their operations in major regional centres like Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong. Increasingly these have become public-service cities, where Labor has consolidated a base.

Third, the environmental curriculum in schools is greatly influencing new voters, especially among the students and young professionals now concentrated in inner Melbourne.

Victoria is set for more big spending by the Andrews Government, more debt on future generations, an energy crisis and more radical social-engineering policies, particularly if the Greens and like-minded parties win the balance of power in the upper house.

Dem Rep Took Donations From Bankman-Fried, Lobbied Against Crypto Regulation

Blames SEC For FTX’s Collapse

mobile-logo

Oh, sweet irony, how you consistently amuse us…

Today’s episode of ‘consequences are best served cold’ comes from Democratic Rep. Ritchie Torres of New York, who according the Daily Caller received $40,300 from Sam Bankman-Fried, ex-CEO of FTX, and his brother, Gabriel Bankman-Fried.

Now, Torres is calling for an investigation of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for “failing to properly regulate the crypto exchange.” He has written a letter to the Government Accountability Office requesting the probe.

This has been “Deep Thoughts”, with Jack Handey.

But just months ago, he was one of 8 members of congress to sign a letter calling into question the SEC’s authority to request disclosure of information by crypto companies.

Gabriel Bankman-Fried had donated more than $31,000 to Torres For Congress, Torres Victory Fund and the Torres-affiliated La Bamba PAC just two weeks prior, the report says.

Torres responded to the Washington Examiner earlier this month, telling the paper that he donated the cash he received from Bankman-Fried “to a local charity to assist with holiday food distributions to families in need.”

Prior to the March letter, the SEC was asking several crypto exchanges for more information about how they were managing customers deposits – information that could have obviously unearthed issues at FTX long before its blowup.

Now that FTX has made a complete fool out of Torres and other Democrats that it donated money to, Torres’ tone has changed significantly.

“The SEC chose to dedicate scarce time and resources to investigating Kim Kardashian, rather than opaque crypto exchanges, leaving many to question whether the commission is operating efficiently and apolitically and whether it has its priorities in the right place,” he wrote in his letter. 

“If the SEC had done the due diligence of thoroughly investigating the financials of FTX, there would have been a greater likelihood of exposing the crypto exchange for what it truly is: a house of cars [sic] built on monopoly money printed out of thin air.”

Yeah, if only certain members of Congress weren’t questioning the SEC’s ability to “do the due diligence” in the first placeunreal.

Ted Cruz On Twitter Files Revelations

“This Was All About Weaponizing Big Tech”

Steve Watson

Republican Senator Ted Cruz has weighed in on the revelations in Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ publication, urging that it is “evidence of corruption that goes to the highest level of government.”

Appearing on Fox News, Cruz asserted that the effort to crush the Hunter Biden laptop story went “to the highest level of the FBI. And it goes to the highest level of Big Tech.”

“We’ve known for a long time that big tech is censoring conservatives,” Cruz said, adding that “what Elon did here is he just laid naked all of the lies that the corporate media has told.”

“It’s clear during the 2020 election, over and over and over again, the Biden campaign and the DNC would reach out to their buddies at Twitter and say, hey we don’t like this, and their response is ‘handled,’ and they’d take it down, over and over and over again,” Cruz stated.

He continued, “And in particular, all of the exchange back and forth when the Hunter Biden laptop story broke, it was evidence that the leadership at Twitter knew within hours that their ridiculous, fake excuse that it was hacked was a ridiculous fake excuse.”

“Even James Baker, who…had been the FBI’s general counsel and then was at Twitter — even he acknowledged well, gosh, we don’t have the evidence on this, but it doesn’t matter, Let’s block it anyway,” Cruz noted, referring to the now fired Twitter Fed, who continued to try to censor Musk’s data dump.

Cruz further highlighted that in “one of the exchanges back and forth they reveal the reason, which is they say we want to avoid — we want to avoid what happened in 2016, Donald Trump winning.”

“This was all about weaponizing big tech. It is absolutely corrupt. And what is amazing is the Democrats were fully in on it,” Cruz charged, adding “The corporate media was fully in on it, and Elon’s released the receipts, which shows all of them are willing to abuse power to stay in power.”

Intro by: Roger Landry (TLB)

Welcome again to Episode #31 of the Eagle’s Eye Report. This episode is Hosted by myself with Co-Host and Producer Stephen Roberts. The title of today’s show is … When It Hurts To Be Right. The intent of this weekly show is to be a mechanism for communicating the truth and facts in a country increasingly forbidding of these very concepts.

No, as I say weekly, this not a pleasant way to introduce a show … but today reality is blatant and not very pleasant in many aspects. Thus the reason, and intent behind the Eagle’s Eye Report.

Our mission is to keep you armed with the vital truth, as well as to present you with a social media platform where you can discuss these vital issues without fear of censorship or exclusion, that being the sponsor of this show … TLBTalk.com.

Now it’s down to business …

When It Hurts To Be Right

Everyone wants to be right … it is only common sense. But when what you are deemed right about is a serious blow to freedom, liberty and the well-being of an entire nation or global society in general … it hurts on a level without comparison !!!

When I look back on the many things I have researched and reported on whether via article or live show over the past almost fifteen years, I realize that a very large portion of my dire predictions or foretelling has been accurate enough to get a lot of constant feedback stating “You were right” … While vindication is soul soothing, it is NOT necessarily a good thing … generating good feelings.

The majority of what I and the TLB Project staff concentrate on is the tyranny, sedition, and yes even the treason being committed in the name of a global elitist caste, for the inevitable purpose of bringing all of us (We The People) to our knees to serve said masters.

The most rewarding work related experience I usually have is finding someone else who has apparently done their homework and come to conclusions that either vindicate my past presentations, or add valuable information my presentations were lacking. Either way I am grateful and (at least for a short period of time) happy.

I do two live Radio shows weekly – Eagle’s Eye Report on ShakeAndWake Radio, and TLBTalk Radio, on Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN). On a show I presented just over a week ago on TLBTalk Radio I discussed in some detail “If You Wanted To Destroy America” (link to show below today’s show). Then to my surprise I happened across a more recent article using the same basic title, and presenting a scenario quite close to my thinking. What follows is a thorough comparison in not only the content of this article, but the intent of this article. This is accomplished by discussing the differences in presentation and explanation of common topics and material, but also what his information adds to the overall picture we are obviously both attempting to present.

The title of the article in presentation: If You Really Wanted To Destroy The United States, Then…, and the Author is : Victor Davis Hanson (Victors article is linked below today’s show).

Victor’s points of priority are very familiar to me, so lets take the time to go over each one of them in detail:

  1. You would surrender our prior energy independence.
  2. Print trillions of dollars in new currency as the lockdowns end.
  3. End America’s physical boundaries. (Open Borders)
  4. Destroy the public trust in its elections.
  5. Redefine crime as one rich man’s crime, another poor man’s necessity.
  6. Junk the melting pot and multiracial society united by common values
  7. Render the United States just one of many nations abroad.
  8. Neuter the First Amendment.
  9. Demonize half the country as fascists, insurrectionists & Domestic Terrorists
  10. Never mention the origins of the COVID virus.

Now lets dig deep into … When It Hurts To Be Right !!!
