There is a difference between legal and illegal immigration - Re-Elect Senator Rob Sampson

Editor's Note: This is published as a public service without

compensation.

 

Dear Friends,

Check out my new ad that points out that there is a difference between legal and "illegal" immigration.  I have worked hard to advocate for policies that keep us safe while also encouraging the expansion of lawful immigration into the United States.


Partisans on both sides like to paint each other as heroes and villains on this issue and that is the sad reason why it has not been fixed. Democrats like painting Republicans as bigots against immigrants. Republicans point to Democrats who seem not to care about the rule of law or the victims of bad actors who happen to be undocumented.

The truth is that both parties need to resolve this.

The current situation is awful. The worst part is that millions of people are stuck living in the shadows in our country because they came here for opportunity but don’t really have it since they can’t work lawfully and have to wonder when they will be caught. Democrats, in particular, are guilty of this since they act like saviors for giving out scraps – driver’s licenses and tuition discounts.

What we need to do is - first acknowledge that a country is only a country with a border so we need to increase border security and prevent more illegal immigration. It is irresponsible from a public safety standpoint to ignore the drug, violence, and human trafficking that occurs because it is only a small percentage of the total border crossings.

Once that is accomplished, we could then create a work permit option that allows those here living in the shadows to come out and become part of the community. They could then work and live without fear – but no entitlements and no voting. However, they can apply to obtain legal status and ultimately citizenship.

Judicial Watch Obtains DOJ Records Showing Top Mueller Team Repeatedly, ‘Accidentally’ Wiped Phones

judicial watch logo - Palo Alto Daily Post

 Strzok-Page Text Messages Still Missing

“The DOJ and FBI hid these records for nearly two years – which only adds to appearance of a cover-up.”

 

(Washington, DC)Judicial Watch announced today it received 87 pages of records from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) that show senior members of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s Office (SCO) repeatedly and “accidentally” wiped phones assigned to them.  

The records were produced in response to Judicial Watch’s September 2019 Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed against the Justice Department and FBI over December 17, 2018, FOIA requests (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:19-cv-02693)) for:

  • All records related to the hardware, software and contents of mobile phones issued to FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page for their use while they served on the investigative team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
  • All records of communication (whether on government or non-.gov email accounts and whether using real names or aliases), with FBI officials relating to the hardware, software and contents of mobile phones issued to FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page for their use while they served on the investigative team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In a table that appears to be a tabulation of Special Counsel’s Office reviews of phones used by Robert Mueller’steam for records-preservation purposes, 27 phones were reported wiped clean of all data prior to the review having taken place:

  • 20 phones were reported wiped of data due to “accidental wipe” (usually from entering the password too many times);
  •  2 phones were reported wiped after placed in airplane mode from which they could not be unlocked because password was forgotten, including the phones of Andrew Weissmann (2 phones) and two deputies of Mueller, Kyle Freeny and Rush Atkinson.
  •  1 phone was wiped clean without explanation. 
  •  There are no records of Robert Mueller’s phone’s ever being reviewed.

The review of Lisa Page’s phone reads as follows: “Phone not found, phone found and with DOJ OIG, but according to AMZ on 9/19/18 conversation, the phone was restored to factory settings. Per email from DOJ OIG contact [redacted] on 10/17/18, the phone was restored to factory settings when they received it.”

The review of Strzok’s phone reads as follows: “No substantive texts, notes or reminders.”

In December 2018, the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General issued a report regarding the recovery of “thousands of text messages.” The IG “initiated this investigation upon being notified of a gap in text message data collection for the period December 15, 2016, through May 17, 2017, from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) mobile devices assigned to FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”  Because of the content of many of the text messages between Strzok and Page, the IG also asked Mueller’s office for the DOJ-issued iPhones that had been assigned to Strzok and Page. The phone assigned to Strzok had been “reset to factory settings” and “reconfigured for the new user to whom the device was issued.” Page’s iPhone had been reset but had not been reassigned. The IG also said that as the date of its report, the FBI wasn’t reliably collecting text messages of all its employees.

“The pandemic of ‘wiped’ phones among the Mueller team requires a criminal investigation of this destruction of evidence and  potential obstruction of justice and other crimes,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The DOJ and FBI hid these records for nearly two years – which only adds to appearance of a cover-up.”

Tax Assessor Damon Braasch is an Idiot and so is Tax Collector Cindy Gotta!

As you can see in the email, below, Braasch claims Boylan Publications originated in Middletown.  It did not.  If he had done even a modicum of research, he would have discovered it originated in Ohio, where I lived, in August of 2017, and still live, today. 
(I moved to a new city last year and Gotta somehow found the new address.)

 He says he sent Declarations, annually.  No declaration is required of BP, since it is not, nor ever has been, in the state of Connecticut.

Braasch goes on to say that he thinks "the issue . . . can be easily resolved with the filing of a some form of notice to the City.  A change of address.  A declaration of personal property."  And, "I do not understand why there would be an objection to doing so."

First of all, he did not tell me that when we spoke, yesterday, or two years ago.  Second, why would I object?  Because it is his error and I should not be so inconvenienced.  He is at fault for failure to perform due diligence, not me.  He could have contacted me for clarification, but, no; he made an erroneous assumption that has caused more trouble than it is worth.

Now, why is Cindy Gotta an Idiot?  I sent her, along with Braasch and every other Middletown official I could find, a link to yesterday's article.

Cindy, in her wisdom, sent Braasch an email, also below, saying she attached copies of outstanding tax bills, along with my new address.  She follows it up with "Go get him!!"  Little did she realize, she also included me as a recipient!  And twice, tried to recall the emails, hoping I would not see them!

 

Seriously?  This is the sort of behavior expected from a public servant; "Go get him!!"?  She knows that there is no justifiable reason to tax BP, but she encourages Braasch to "go get him".

 

The recall attempts appear, below.

RE: Damon Braasch

As you can see I have been trolled.

The issue is as narrated in the article.  We believe The Middletown Insider to be a commercial publication which sells advertising.  This site originated in Middletown under William Boylan (Boylan Publications LLC) of 580 East Main St.  We have sent declarations annually to the owner in an attempt to obtain information regarding taxable assets located in the municipality, in accordance with §12-41.  No declaration has ever been filed, and so as required under §12-42 an estimated amount, plus the required penalty, was entered into the Grand List, and a notice was mailed.

We have never received any form of notification as to location of assets, ownership, or mailing address.  I credit the South Fire Tax Collector’s office with obtaining an address.

Again, the site originated in Middletown.  Nonetheless, if what is reported in the story is true, the publisher left

Middletown Tax Assessor Damon Braasch is an Idiot!

 In August of 2017, four months after moving to Ohio, I incorporated Boylan Publications, LLC in . . . the state of Ohio.  The Middletown Insider falls under BP, LLC, and began selling advertising on it.  To date, BP, LLC has not received one dime in revenue from said advertising.  That is because Google will only send a payment when advertising sales reach $100.00.

At some point after August, 2017, tax assessor Damon Braasch saw the advertising on the Insider and decided to tax it, sending tax bills to an address where I no longer lived.  Somewhere along the line, he (and the tax collectors) got my Ohio address and started sending bills, there.  (How he got either address, I do not know.)

Braasch did no research whatsoever to determine where Boylan Publications was located, he assumed, incorrectly, it was in Middletown.

While visiting in 2018, I went to his office to talk about the matter.  Being more than two years ago, I don't recall much of the conversation, but basically he said that BP could be taxed because it sold advertising and was "about" Middletown.

I'm now getting tax bills from The South Fire District.  When I spoke to tax collector Cindy Gotta about the tax bill, she advised me to call the assessor; there was nothing she could do.

So, I gave the idiot a call.  He asked if I ever filed a Declaration of Personal Property.  No, why would I; I'm in another state!  I don't remember ever getting one, either.  Then, he says I have to appeal to The Board of Assessment Appeals, which only meets in March.

What he didn't tell me, is that The Board "hears" the written appeals application, according to their web site.  "The form must be submitted within the prescribed deadline for an appeal to be heard."

Does this mean the appellant has to be present at the hearing?  I think it does; this from the application form: "PLEASE BRING IN ITEMS INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PHOTOS, APPRAISALS AND OTHER DOCUMENTS THAT WILL AID THE BOARD WITH THEIR DELIBERATION."  And, "ALL APPOINTMENTS WILL BE SCHEDULED".

This would mean I'd have to travel to Connecticut, attend the hearing, and return to Ohio.  That would cost me three days pay, plus travel expenses!  Far more than the $65.40 tax bill!

I'm will not do that and if Braasch thinks I will, then he really is an idiot!  Come and get me Damon!

Governor DeWine Suppresses Data Disproving COVID-19 Policies

Richland Source hires Windsor as Sales Director | Business News ...
Jack Windsor image from Richland Source
This is credited to Jack Windsor with WMFD-TV in Mansfield. To read the report in its entirety, follow the link at the bottom of this post.

Ohio Governor DeWine, Director of Health Acton and Lt. Governor Husted started handling the Coronavirus outbreak with faulty modeling,
while ignoring critical real-time data. Now the trio suppresses critical data. Ohioans:  aware, enraged and bracing to fight for the truth.


The backdrop

COVID-19 first made an indelible mark on Ohioans when Governor Mike DeWine canceled the 2020 Arnold Sports Festival, which was
schedule to start March 5.  On March 16, Governor DeWine backed a lawsuit seeking to
postpone the primary election scheduled for the next day. The suit was filed by Ohioans who feared voting in person would expose voters and poll workers to COVID-19.

 
Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Richard Fry declined to postpone the election, but Fry’s decision did not stop DeWine. In the late hours of election eve, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton declared a healthcare emergency to force polls closed. The emergency powers are granted by the Ohio Revised Code and have been in effect since March 16. 

Early data flawed

Nearly a week before the stay-at-home order was issued, Imperial College epidemiologist Neil Ferguson modeled the COVID-19 outbreak. Ferguson’s model became the point of reference for leaders across the globe, influencing lockouts and sheltering policies.

Blast from the Past - "The Spirit of Resistance"

The following is the written testimony of William Boylan to the CT General Assembly Task Force On Gun Violence Prevention And Children's Safety, given on 28Jan2013. His condensed oral testimony, derived from the written, is presented in the video.  The task force was formed as a reaction to the Newtown Massacre with the express intent of enacting even greater limitation to the people's right to keep and bear arms.


The Middletown Insider wishes to thank you, Palin Smith, for recording this and for your many years of dedication to the cause of liberty.  It is a pleasure and honor to know you, Patriot. 

Ladies and gentlemen,  

First, let me remind everyone that the elected official and the public servant are the servants of the People, not their masters.

There is a contract between the People and the government.  That contract consists of the United States and Connecticut constitutions.  These are the Supreme law of the land and a restriction on the powers of government, not on the rights and powers of the people.  All government power is derived from the people.

Sec. 15 of the Connecticut Constitution states, “Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.”  This is clear and unambiguous.  It identifies the “who”, “every citizen”, the “what”, “a right to bear arms” and the “why”, “in defense of themselves and the state”.

The Second Amendment states, “A well regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”  Because of the evolution of language and dismal failure of our education system, this requires explanation.

The Second Amendment is two fold.  The first “what”, “A well regulated militia,” refers both to a right and a responsibility of the People.  What is the militia?  To answer that, it is necessary to look at the writings of those who drafted, debated and ratified the Bill of Rights.

George Mason said, "I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." 1)

James Madison said, “A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country ..." 2)

These are just two examples of the Founder’s statements regarding the militia.  It is clear that the militia is the whole body of the people.

World Domination - Part Two

I will share an idea with you; it is one of several. This will be a longer message, as I have to support it with reason.

We have a group of very powerful and wealthy people who I refer to as the medical scientists agenda group.  It involves the WHO, CDC, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Warren Buffet  9who is a chairman of the Bill Gates Foundation   0, The Clinton Foundation, Anthony Faucci,  (who has been a part of WHO and the Gates Foundation), and several other very powerful people across the world.

This is a power play, and it is for world power.  The Gates Foundation wants vaccines for everything, and they want a universal flu vaccine to cure the flu and viruses like corona virus.  This vaccine will also, (supposedly), prevent future flu and viruses.  They want these vaccinations to be mandatory, worldwide.  These people are trying to take the place of God.

If you look at Ohio, Amy Acton, the public health director, is calling all the shots, not DeWine.  If you look at President Trump’s press conferences, who is primarily calling the shots?  Anthony Faucci and Linda Byrx.  This is happening not only in the United States, but also in many other countries across the world.  Why is India quarantining 1.3 billion people when they had 700 cases and less than 100 deaths?  Why are so many countries in Europe under the same stay-at-home order as we are?  It is because of the advice of the medical "experts".  The health departments are holding the ultimate authority in all of our counties in Ohio, as well as many other states.

Why are the medical scientists holding the ultimate authority in this country, as well as many others?  There is definitely an agenda, here.

China Update Biosecurity, Biosafety, Bioweapons, and China’s Dual-Use Bioresearch

By Daria Novak
 
Daria is also a former State Department official and co-host of  "The American Political Zone" and friend.
 
The current Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has focused much-needed attention on China’s dual-use bio-research programs. “Dual-purpose bioresearch refers to bioscience research that can be used for beneficial purposes or abused for harmful ends,” wrote four Chinese scientists from Wuhan last summer, according to a Journal of Biosafety and Biosecurity. One of the researchers, Yuan Zhiming, is director of the Chinese National Biosafety Laboratory and a researcher at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). 
 
The three other researchers include another WIV researcher, Ma Haixia, a Chinese Academy of Sciences researcher Liang Huigang, and Xiang Xiaowei of the Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan. Together they explained that China lacks a law solely dedicated to biosafety regulation, or a complete supervisory system for handling new biotechnologies.
 
These scientists are not the only ones aware of the deficits in China’s biosafety regimes for its research labs. They are, however, among the few scientific elite in China writing about the specifics of biosafety prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Months later, February 14, 2020, President-for-Life Xi Jinping addressed the need for comprehensive new and revised laws to deal with biohazards in a talk to senior members of the State Council. What is most revealing, however, is his choice of words. With the change of only one character, his speech morphed from a talk on biosafety to one on biosecurity.

Reading the English version, one might not notice the change of “shengwu anquan” to “shengwu anbao.” In some languages, biosafety and biosecurity are one concept comprised of a single word. In China, this is no longer the case. Less than a decade ago, Beijing split the term into two separate and critical concepts.

“Biosafety” now references organism-related, human or non-human factors, that may pose a risk to life, including public health, the economy, social stability, and the natural environment. Biosafety therefore focuses primarily on the principle technologies and physical practices in a laboratory that prevent the unintended exposure of pathogens and toxins to the outside environment.
 
In contrast, “biosecurity” addresses the use of biological agents, or biotechnology, as bioweapons or bioterrorism, including the organism’s ability to harm the national security of the state. This is what apparently concerned President Xi in his February address and should concern the world today.
