Stefanik a voice for concerned parents

To hear our congresswoman advocate for parents was a long time in the making.
The absurdities that covid revealed lit a fire in the belly of many parents only to be snuffed out with threats of domestic terrorism.
Anyone with some semblance understood this accusation was not only maniacal, but it was also erroneous.
Unfortunately, many parents were going up against the same institutions that had indoctrinated a superior sense of authority over their children.
The shortage of hope caused many people to fall in line as they were sold an alternative narrative that this was not happening.
Rep. Elise Stefanik has been paying attention and vowed to hold the government accountable in regard to their equating concerned parents on the same level of domestic terrorists.
She recently called out the corrupt FBI and its intention to use federal enforcement tools to not only target, but prosecute, parents for simply being invested in the well-being of their child.
Exposing the Biden administration as the driving factors of this manufactured crisis was paramount. For far too long it had gone unchecked.
I would like to commend Congresswoman Stefanik for bringing this to light, as there has been an immense focus on Twitter lately and she did not allow this issue to become clouded.
Prospective is back in Congress, drive is back in Congress, transparency is back in Congress.
It is not surprising that it is spearheaded by a mom who speaks truth for so many Americans.

Students chose to take on loan debt

I hope the Supreme Court rules against this student loan forgiveness program.
I went to SUNY Albany, a college that I could afford, and worked the whole time as well so I could graduate debt free.
I could have gone to one of my more expensive dream schools, but I opted to live within my means.
Now the government wants to use my tax money, so I can pay for others who chose to live beyond their means.
I could agree to a program that mitigates the exorbitant interest rates and fees that were piled on.
But if someone chose to take on that debt, it is their debt, not mine.

Time to move on from Donald Trump

People, people please put Donald Trump in your rearview mirror. All evidence shows he lost the 2020 election. My late mom would have called him a poor sport or a sore loser. A very bad trait for any human being.

Polly typical liberal talking points. Let me tell you what this administration and you Democrats are doing. Trump said why is Russia our enemy, they are in the NATO alliance let’s make them our friend. And instead the Democrats who most of them are owned by Chinese or have a Chinese spy in their bedroom or in their office or driving their cars say that Trump is a Russian asset. So what happens now? What happens now is this administration and Democrats short sightedness put one of the largest energy producers in the world with gas and oil and pushes them into the arms of one of the countries with the largest population and largest manufacturing assets in the world. Together China and Russia Will be so strong that even with our posturing, there’s no way that we could defeat them. See the problem with Joe Biden, and most of the Democrats and Republicans in office is that they are embedded m, they owe too many favors they owe their donors and nothing gets done. Donald Trump was an outsider , that’s why he got things done. Try refuting my statement with out the Insults. Plain arguments. I know the lefties can’t do

My problem is that Maines is NOT a woman, take her blood and the chromosomes will be XY.
Joan Rivers was a very successful comedian and there are hundreds of stories about Barack being gay and Michelle being Michael. I will wait for that picture of a pregnant Michelle Obama that is not photoshopped. Also for as much time as they spend at the beach, there is not a single picture of her with a bathing suit bottom, just shorts.

“Okay if the women gets an abortion then she obviously does not want children why just sterilize her so she can have all the unprotected sex with as many partners as she wants and never have to worry about abortions? No different than suggesting men getting a vasectomy. You are correct men cannot get an abortion, yet a women would not need one is it weren’t for a man men getting a vasectomy

The problem now, Bruce, is that college is exceedingly unaffordable for many. When I graduated University at Albany in 2001, my yearly in-state tuition was $3,400. Tuition today is over $10k. Not sure how much it was when you went there, but we can’t tell young kids they need to go to college to be successful, make it ridiculously expensive to get a degree, but then offer them 10’s of thousands in loans in the hopes they’ll earn enough from the degree to pay it back.

Mr butryn until Mr Trump and his cronies including Stefanik are held accountable for the crimes they committed they must be remembered they are a clear and present danger to this country an our Democracy to this day. We are fortunate to live inthis great Democracy.

Reading the comments from the left just reinforces the fact that “Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder” Michael Savage coined the phrase of a lifetime.

Guy Varoma

Mr. Bill 🤡 of course you would quote Michael Savage one of the biggest
“conservative” conspiracy theorist there is. No wonder you post such stupidity daily here.

I agree with Mr. Levy’s point that the least we could do for overburdened students so heavily in debt that they can see no way to begin their lives is to eliminate all fees and interest due. Divide the principal due per month into a reasonable time frame, depending on the balance, until the principal amount is paid back. A student who borrowed $25,000, given ten years to pay it back with no interest, would only have to pay $208 a month (208 x 120= 24,960). I see this as a reasonable compromise and a win for all involved.

In the long run I believe State Universities should operate tuition free or at a nominal tuition of $500 to $l000 a semester. Post high school education in business, computer science, and the trades should be established under the same system. Of course private institutions would also continue as an option. As a member of the tax paying public I would be overjoyed to see my taxes going for the developing of human resources. Educated people contribute to the general well-being of society as well as economic growth. I believe we would see a reduction in crime and a better functioning democracy.

I must acknowledge a certain bias; I led a great life, largely because a college education at SUNYA was provided to me tuition free. An education I would never have been able to afford.

Guy Varoma

I think they should add a year to high school a 13 grade that teaches college courses. I also think they stress college way to much. The tell kids you “must” go to college. A lot of them end up jobless and in debt. Many end up at jobs that they don’t college degrees for. More trade school is needed also. Most high schools have done away with their shop classes, which I think is a mistake….In the center states there is a shortage of truck and machine operators. Those jobs start at $50,000 a year. A better starting pay than teachers.

christophe Stalka

Big Bm / zach great suggestions yesterday from Florida 2015 on how to solve your financial problems with your 401k be sure to check em out while you’re out on patrol today also look for an interest bearing checking account for all that cash go luck on patrol

Guy, I agree, good idea. Some young people would need only one year of training to become a heavy equipment operator, truck driver, heating and air conditioning expert, machinist, licensed practical nurse etc.

Living a lie is the ultimate mental disorder. With that in mind:

“Stalka I probably have more in my checking account than you make in a year.”

And you are worried because your investments only went up .56%? The economy is cyclical; there are so many factors influencing the performance of the stock market that blaming the president just shows how ignorant you are. Interest rate hikes to bring down the rate of inflation are likely the major factor behind the drop in bond and stock prices. Smart investors don’t bellyache; they see risk as an inherent part of investment and hang in there. The really smart ones see down markets as buy opportunities. They keep enough cash on hand to ride out a bear market. As smart as you are, you should use that money to buy equities and bonds or index funds, etfs, and mutual funds while navs are low.

Your ignorance, ego and false pride are demonstrated by the assumption that a smart guy like you has far more money than another poster. Do you know what Christophe makes? Is this what Jesus would want you to brag about, how much more money than others you have? tsk tsk tsk….

I am a pro-life member of Congress. As she did not retract or clarify that she was “joking* with her statement, we are taking this threat as a serious one.

Now a report from the FBI.
Data breach hits “hundreds’ of lawmakers and staff on Capitol Hill
A letter from House leaders obtained by NBC News said the FBI was able to purchase some of the hacked material on the dark web.

Look at the set up for an attack on pro life representatives.
Let’s see if they hold people accountable for their words. If that were a Trump supporter calling for murder 24/7 attack on conservatives. FBI arrests a pro life dad for defending his child , but refuses to go after Jane’s revenge. HMM Jane Fonda, Janes revenge seems like an organized terrorist group names after her.

Mr Santo and varoma on the education issue the other thing we need to consider is the professional associations nursing magnet designation requires a % of the employed nurses in a hospital be bSN prepared eliminating lpn or as positions. Physical therapy and pharmacists are PhD programs. This should be looked at


Abortions worldwide this year:
Sources and methods:
Definition: An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by the removal or expulsion of an embryo or fetus from the uterus, resulting in or caused by its death. An abortion can occur spontaneously due to complications during pregnancy or can be induced.

Abortion as a term most commonly – and in the statistics presented here – refers to the induced abortion of a human pregnancy, while spontaneous abortions are usually termed miscarriages.

“This year” refers to the period from Jan 1 at 00:00 up to now.

The data on abortions displayed on the Worldometer’s counter is based on the latest estimates on worldwide abortions published by various sources, including the World Health Organization (WHO). According to WHO, every year in the world there are around 73 million induced abortions. This corresponds to approximately 200,000 abortions per day.

In the USA, where nearly 30% of pregnancies are unintended and 40% of these are terminated by abortion, there are between 1,500 to 2,500 abortions per day. Nearly 20% of all pregnancies in the USA (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion. Guttmacher Institute reports 930,160 abortions performed in 2020 in the United States, with a rate of 14.4 per 1,000 women. CDC reports 629,898 abortions in 2019, with a rate of 11.4 abortions per 1,000 women (excludes CA, MD, NH).


More evidence coming forward about TIC Biden and his think tanks. Remember my post posts about Biden and I ended it with TIK TOK? HMM why would someone do that, connect our Traitor In Chief to TIK TOK. also bringing to light the RINO’s we already knew about.
This was just released, some already seen the connection but were called conspiracy theory and called a liar. HUH once again the walls are getting smaller TIK TOK…TIC

TikTok hiring SKDK is almost too perfect for words. White House + Media + Dem think tanks run by Biden advisors are all in on the CCP.

TikTok, the wildly popular Chinese-owned social media app, has hired top Biden-connected consulting firm SKDK as it faces increasing scrutiny in Washington, according to two people, including one with direct knowledge of the hire.

The public affairs and political consulting firm is providing communications support to the company, which has come under government scrutiny, with senators recently introducing a bipartisan bill empowering Biden to restrict or potentially ban the service.The hiring came in the last few months, according to the person with direct knowledge of the hire. A spokesperson for SKDK declined to comment while a spokesperson for TikTok who also declined to comment.

The fire TikTok has faced in D.C. has been building for a number of years after the Trump administration tried to ban the app. It has continued with the Biden administration’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. conducting a national security review of TikTok.

SKDK is seen as the most well-connected Democratic firm in Washington with former top employees in senior and mid-level roles in the Biden administration. Anita Dunn, a founding partner, returned to the White House last May where she is senior adviser after a stint in the early part of the Biden administration and work on the 2020 campaign. Other former SKDK employees in the Biden administration include deputy White House communications directors Kate Berner and Herbie Ziskend, deputy Pentagon press secretary Sabrina Singh and Interior Department press secretary Tyler Cherry.

While it has thrived in the Biden era, SKDK has also faced additional scrutiny for its clients. It parted ways with Starbucks last year as the coffee company tried to fend off a union organizing effort. As of 2021, the firm worked for Amazon as well but it’s unclear whether the two companies still have a relationship.

Last year, Dunn said in financial disclosure documents that she had advised a number of blue-chip American companies in the previous two years who have business before the government, including AT&T, Lyft, Pfizer and Salesforce. The firm, which is owned by the Stagwell Group, has long emphasized that it doesn’t lobby the federal government or represent companies on issues before the government.

The bill introduced by a bipartisan group of senators that could affect TikTok is supported by the White House. It would give the federal government new powers to restrict, and potentially ban, technologies from China and other nations designated as U.S. adversaries, although such an action would face howls from advocates of free speech. TikTok is seen as one of the technologies that is helping prompt that action from Congress given the worries that the Chinese government could one day use data from its millions of American users.

To try to mitigate federal government action against TikTok, the app’s Chinese owner ByteDance has spent more than $13 million on lobbying since 2019 and has hired several dozen lobbyists, including former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and John Breaux Sr. (R-La.), who work for Crossroads Strategies, as well as former Reps. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) and Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.), who currently work for K&L Gates.


If you question our elected officials loyalty to our country and the constitution here is proof they are clueless about the oath they take when they are put into office. Sabrina Coco should be immediately removed from office. Absolutely inexcusable for this to happen. Then again the groomers in school allowed children not to recite their pledge of allegiance to the country that gives them such amazing freedoms afforded to them by our constitution.
Florida GOP put this out:
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all…
Florida Democrat Sabina Covo doesn’t know the Pledge of Allegiance.

Brandies calm your rage stop spinning if anyone wanted to follow your nonsense you’re making it impossible hmmmmmmmm?


UKRAINE narrative falling apart. Biden administration states it was a PRO Ukrainian force that was responsible for the Nord stream pipe line. NYT reported.

Now Zelensky is getting nervous because they are bailing on Ukraine because of the Americans are not willing to commit to WW3 for the Ukrainian borders . The United States cannot secure their own why are fighting for Ukraines?

JUST IN – Zelenskyy on Nord Steam explosions: “We have nothing to do with it.. Ukrainians definitely did not do this.”
Zelenskyy said that he believes such reports might be circulated to provoke a slowdown in aid to Ukrainians at a press conference with Finnish Prime Minister Sanna
Marin in Kyiv.


Christo baby killer do you think you and the LONELY DONKEY CLOWN club are the only ones who read this page. There are many others that do not comment because of the attacks by the ICP. Go outside and play hide and LETS GO yourself.

This is the stuff MSM hides from the American citizens.

christophe Stalka

brandies stop the spinnning buddy focus on a spot in the distance it will get better the rage wil subside.

sorry youre so anti USA but you do you buddy

but our democracy will carry on! have a great day !

Guy Varoma

Mr. Brandon 🤡 you are correct many others do read this page. And I’m willing to bet that a high percentage of them are asking….”Who is this idiot” when reading your comments. I think the more people you expose yourself to and others like you is good for democracy. It encourages people to vote against the nonsense you spew when it comes to election time, just as over 80 million did in 2020. You and Mr. Bill 🤡 are the reason the Democrats won. Keep up the good work.


I’m sorry GV and ICP I am see your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying you are only coming through in waves . Your statement can be interpreted either way. They’ve can look at the propaganda you spew and say man they really don’t have a clue do they.

Guy Varoma

No Mr. Brandon 🤡as I pointed out over 8o million people voted against what who you supported and what you spew on here. Mr. Bill 🤡 and you are the reason they voted democrat ….And they will vote again in force to keep the loonies from the White House again, 2916 was a fluke. Low turnout and villainizing Clinton was the reason Trump won….The loonies had their voice heard for 4 years, And the American people didn’t like what they heard. Trump was voted off the island …he lost and will lose again. Except it and move on with your life. Being stupid for Trump has become a fruitless job. If not, be ready for disappointment again.

The Geauga Maple Leaf reports: 3/11

Dennis W. Laferty, a pastor at Thompson United Methodist Church in Thompson Township, is accused of sexual battery against one or more minors. Laferty, 37, who lives in a home Trustees of Thompson Methodist Church own at 6724 Madison Road, is facing multiple felony counts.

Laferty was charged with five counts of third-degree felony sexual battery, and one count of third-degree felony gross sexual imposition involving a person less than 13 years of age.

Laferty, a former staff sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, joined TUMC in July 2018 after serving three years as pastor at The United Methodist Church in Nevada, Ohio. He is married and has three daughters, according to his Facebook page.

Christophe, I agree with your view that we could have more pharmacists, nurses, and other health professionals, even M.D.’s, if we pared the courses down to what they really need to perform their professional duties.

To some extent, this has been done by allowing nurse practitioners and physician assistants to do routine physicals and other functions that used to require an M.D.

FOX is scared to death of losing viewers to Newsmax; that is why so many FOX news hosts were critical of Trump and his associates behind the scenes while supporting them on air:

Mediaite reports: 3/11

“Tucker Carlson has kind of been caught with his pants down,” Eric Bolling told Sebastian Gorka on Friday’s edition of The Balance on Newsmax. “What are your thoughts on Tucker’s pandering?”

“These text messages do not look good for either Fox or for Tucker,” Gorka replied. “Why would Tucker Carlson want to ignore a Republican with an incredible four-year track record?”

“I’ll tell you why,” Bolling, a former Fox News host interjected. “I knew Tucker. If you remember way back when, Tucker was the weekend Fox & Friends host. He was one of the three hosts. He couldn’t stand Trump back then. He didn’t really start getting on the Trump bandwagon until he had a show called Tucker Carlson. That is the truth.”

F___youBiden: Why are you such an insecure person? All your graffiti screams, “Look at me, please!?!”
And yet another Stefanik cheerleader steps forward! Renee McEvilly is giddy that Elise!™ is holding the criminal Extreme Left Wing Socialists™ lib government accountable for “equating concerned parents with terrorists”!!!!
(Actually Renee, you and your friends are making that equation. But many are in fact acting like terrorists, going way too far beyond “concerned”).

Advocating for parents!!!, Elise!™ is. And God-fearing ex-presidents who can’t accept they lost, and feel free to grab and otherwise abuse women as he sees fit.

Why is it so hard to see that dealing with a global health emergency is not like protesting ugly school uniforms? Why is it so hard to accept that at one point refrigerator tractor trailers were lined up to hold the overflow of bodies? Why is it so hard to understand that 2000 were buried in mass graves on Hart Island during the height of the pandemic, triple the usual number?

Is the thought of that just too traumatic to accept? Like multiple elementary school mass killings, right here in America; maybe the thought is so traumatic you’ll listen to anyone who offers even the most absurd explanation to avoid accepting how terrible these things really are.

But they really happened, and the Stefanik followers, like all the other MAGA seem to have channeled their shock into hate, as directed by their influencers, like Elise!™ for their own profit and political gain.

Well done, Renee McEvilly! Spoken like a well-honed tool.

“Stalka I probably have more in my checking account than you make in a year.”

Yeah, but I have been making a killing in the high-yield savings account I have. I have some personal ESG stock that a friend who works in the Hong Kong market turned me on to. It is expected to rise 30% over the next 90 days, I also have a lead on a new IPO coming from the same friend in April. Thanks for the advice, I’m doing ok, the 401K will be doing great as soon as we get rid of Brandon.

Where did you come up with that and by the way I am a person of color.



William Marincic
November 9th, 2021

“Doug, I’m 12% African American. My daughter’s fiance has a daughter by his ex-wife who happens to be Black, I love her just as much as my White grandkids. I have Black nieces and nephews but you know what? I don’t look at their color, they are kids like any other kid. I don’t look at people’s color, they are just people. Racism is big business and it’s always promoted by Democrats, as long as we continue to use color as an issue, color will always be an issue. It’s time to just let racism die. Finally. in America there is what’s called “The One Drop Rule” which means that if a person has even a drop of Black blood they are Black. So to answer your question, I can be considered Black.”

christophe Stalka

Chuck I think he just uses that racism story to justify his black face al jolsen halloween costume. I actually think he’s really Elvis at least that’s the next line of crap he’ll be trying to sell. I wonder what blood component makes a n idiot 1 % clueless

“I don’t look at people’s color, they are just people.”

Just like:
‘I don’t look at other people’s racial prejudices, they’re just people. It doesn’t matter if they pick silly names like Groyper, or Proud Boys, or The Base, or the ironically named Oath Keepers or Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (See Mr. Waite’s editorial elsewhere). They’re all just people! And Jesus loves them all, as do I’.


Technically white is the sum of all colors and black is the absence of color. So technically Bill is a man of color

christophe Stalka

Let’s go brandie technically Big Bm is a pervert and a liar I mean if you want to be technical let’s be accurate and factual.
