Thousands of residents in Aspen, Colorado were left without heat during near-zero degree weather after vandals — possibly green activists from an environmental group — attacked the city’s gas system, authorities said Monday.
The vandals apparently attacked three separate Black Hills Energy gas lines, one in Aspen and two in

In celebration of a 2020 that desperately needs to come to an end, here is a list of the Top 10 Worst Mayors in the nation. These mayors most definitely use Orwell’s 1984 as their policies and procedures manual, if not their Bible.
It comes as no surprise that all 10 of the mayors on the list are Democrat (something about that political party), and that five of the 10 are mayors of West Coast cities (something about the Pacific Ocean).
Several of the mayors have overseen a mass exodus of people from their cities, and even their state in a 10-month period. But most of all, every one of these mayors stand out as abject failures of governance, with constituents that literally despise them.

This may be the most important question in American history.
"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."
The quote is ascribed to Joseph Stalin, although there’s little evidence that he actually said it. Nevertheless, it resonates as true. Certainly America stands in crisis now because of disagreements about the count of the popular vote.
But the President of the United States isn’t actually elected by the popular vote. He’s elected by the college of presidential electors. As I noted in a previous article, one of the most important questions in this crisis is whether the state legislatures can appoint presidential electors to cast their votes in opposition to the popular vote.
But there is another question: Who counts the votes cast by the presidential electors? If “those who count the votes decide everything,” as Stalin said, then this is the most important question in American history.
The Constitutional Argument
The U.S. Constitution governs the election of the President. The controlling provision is the Twelfth

Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger took out after Trump and his supporters in response to a Saturday morning tweet by the President in which he called out the “Justice” Department and FBI over alleged “Presidential Election Voter Fraud.”
Kinzinger, who may be redistricted out of his seat or face a Republican primary challenger in 2024, has been flailing of late as he appears increasingly out-of-step with the GOP rank-in-file, and longing for the pre-Trump Republican Party that is popular among the leadership of the Illinois GOP. It is rumored that Kinzinger is eyeing higher office and likely currying favor with Illinois' Democrat and Republican power-brokers to obtain his next office and continue his singular, lifetime career in government.

At least 50 shots fired at the corner of State and Eire as two black street gangs had it out. One wounded and no arrest. Nothing reported in the local media. Like it didn't happen.
Guess what. About 150,000 nearby residents heard it and are wondering why they are living there. Expect them to be out of there soon.

On January 6, a joint session of Congress will open with Vice President Pence presiding as president of the Senate. His power will be plenary and unappealable. You heard that right. As president of the Senate, every objection comes directly to him, and he can rule any objection "out of order" or "denied." His task will be to fulfill his oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and to ensure that the laws be faithfully executed. This is a high standard of performance, and V.P. Pence will have two choices. He can roll over on "certified" electors, or he can uphold the law.
Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution gives state legislatures "plenary authority" as enunciated in Bush v. Gore. This is key, since the counting of votes is discussed in Article II, the 12th Amendment, and 3 USC 15. To this we must add the history of counting and objections recounted by Alexander Macris (here and here). Put bluntly, it's as clear as mud. Add to that the fact that the contested states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have sent dueling slates of electors to D.C. This means that the V.P. has to decide how he will handle the situation when

Bill Clinton’s Profitable Pardon Business
Political prosecutions aside, Trump should not be pardoning criminals, even if they are relatives. That being said, Trump’s pardons are nothing like this: Bill was giving them out for cash.
by MARK HYMAN
“I don’t know Roger Clinton. I’ve never met Roger Clinton. How did he know I applied for clemency? That’s not public information. And how did he get my private cell phone number? I don’t give that out, but it was in my clemency application.” Those comments were shared with me by someone who had a clemency application pending before Bill Clinton when he left the presidency. The applicant was convinced Bill gave the cell phone number to his brother.
Roger Clinton told the applicant it would cost $100,000 to get a pardon from his brother. Was the

Dominion Warns Giuliani, White House That Defamation Litigation Is “Imminent”
I keep reading stories about Dominion or Smartmatic sending demand letters to their accusers and thinking, “This can’t possibly work.” Not because the companies haven’t been smeared but because it’s almost literally unimaginable in 2020 that a political actor would face meaningful consequences for smearing someone. This is the age of social media! We elected Trump, for God’s sake. America doesn’t “do” defamation anymore. You can tell any falsehood about a political enemy in a moment of anger and expect no consequences for yourself even if there are serious consequences for them.
We should all get out of that mindset, though. It’s pernicious, and it’s also not true. Dominion has retained a well-known defamation lawyer in Tom Clare, who won a million-dollar jury verdict

Spying is as old as civilization. As long as there have been leaders with secrets and armies on the march, opponents have wanted to know what they’re thinking and where they’re going. Hence the need for spies.
And it comes as no surprise that the Chinese are as good as anyone when it comes to spying and that their main target is the United States. What may come as a surprise is the scope of their success and the enormous number of operatives, influencers, sleepers and other varieties of spies who have already infiltrated critical U.S. institutions.
Of course, a lot of spying today involves surveillance of phone calls, digital message traffic, online financial transactions, facial recognition software, satellite surveillance and other electronic tradecraft.
But the old fashioned methods of the human spy penetrating organizations, gaining trust and stealing secrets have never gone away. In fact, that type of human intelligence (HUMINT) seems to be having a renaissance.

When it comes to U.S. cities with the highest populations, Houston might put Chicago in fourth place by 2030.
That’s according to author and journalist Ted McClelland, who said people should care about these rankings if they want Chicago to retain its status as an international city.
“When you’re a city losing people, it doesn’t look like you’re a healthy city,” said McClelland, author of “Nothin’ But Blue Skies: The Heyday, Hard Times and Hopes of America’s Industrial Heartland” and, more recently, “How To Speak Midwestern.”
The solution? Regional consolidation by annexing the suburbs, he said.
The idea isn’t a new one: the city of Chicago’s borders stretched aggressively in the late 19th and early

American taxpayers still reeling from coronavirus lockdowns will be shelling out billions to foreign countries if Congress passes a $2.3 trillion spending bill unveiled Monday.
The 5,593 page budget-busting bill was posted online Monday afternoon, only hours before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said a vote would be held.
For some countries, Christmas came early:
$169,739,000 to Vietnam, including $19 million to remediate dioxins (page 1476).
Unspecified funds to “continue support for not-for-profit institutions of higher education in Kabul, Afghanistan that are accessible to both women and men in a coeducational environment” (page 1477).

VATICAN CITY, Dec 21 (Reuters) - The Vatican told Roman Catholics on Monday that it was morally acceptable for them to use COVID-19 vaccines, even if their production employed cell lines drawn from tissues of aborted fetuses.
A note from the Vatican's doctrinal congregation, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said the use of such vaccines was permitted as long as there were no alternatives. (Reporting By Philip Pullella; Editing by Alex Richardson)
I'm starting to think that Jill Biden's Phd is just more political malarkey. She was awarded the degree in January 2007 from the University of Delaware. This is the same University of Delaware that houses the Biden Institute for Public Policy. Am I correct to presume that the education department at U of D is subject to the very same political influence that caused the U of D to establish the Biden Institute.
At some time in the past, Jill Biden took a MA from the very prestigious Villanova. I have to ask why didn't she pursue the Phd at Villanova? I mean the program is well established and she knew everyone there already. Why didn't she pursue the Phd at the

Obama’s Latest Autobiography Rewrites Israeli History to Make You Hate the Jewish State
BY ROBERT SPENCER DEC 20, 2020 1:22 PM ET
Whatever the merits or lack thereof of Barack Obama’s presidency, he certainly leads all other presidents in the number of autobiographies he has written, with three compared to a number of his peers who are tied at one. However, his latest one, A Promised Land, is more than just an update on the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of the Most Undeservedly Celebrated Man on the Planet; it’s a full-on apologia for his policies as president, and a program for his impending third term, aka the Biden administration.
The weighty 768-page tome not only tells you more about His Wonderfulness than you ever thought you wanted to know; it also provides a potted Leftist history of Israel that abundantly illustrates how

A look at the CCP’s biological warfare intentions and capabilities
December 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – No less a figure than Dr. Francis Boyle, an expert on biowarfare, believes that “the coronavirus that we’re dealing with here is an offensive biological warfare weapon.” Speaking of Wuhan’s Institute of Virology, which is at the epicenter of the epidemic, he added that there have “been previous reports of problems with that lab and things leaking out of it.”
For Dr. Boyle to be correct, the CCP would have to have both the “intention” and the “capability” to develop such a bioweapon. Does it?
It is no secret that the Chinese Communist regime, despite being a signatory to the Biological Weapons Convention, regards the development of bioweapons as a key part of achieving military dominance. The vice-president of China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences, He Fuchu (贺福初), said in 2015 that biomaterials were the new “strategic commanding heights” of warfare.
PLA general Zhang Shibo (张仕波) went even further in his 2017 book, War’s New High Land, claiming that “modern biotechnology development is gradually showing strong signs characteristic of an offensive capability,” including the potential for “specific ethnic genetic attacks” (特定种族基因攻击).
Reflect on that phrase – “specific ethnic genetic attacks” – for a minute.
What General Zhang is talking about, to be perfectly clear, is bioweapons that kill other races, but for
Prepare For A Grid Down False Flag To Ring In 2021 As Globalists Go Back To Their Old Tricks By Demonizing Russia And 'Telegraphing' Something Huge Ahead
- 'We May All Have To Pay The Price'
With Democrats and the 'deep state' once again screaming 'Russia, Russia, Russia' at the top of their lungs following an alleged 9-month-long hack that exposed US government agencies across the board, all we need to do is take a look back at several ANP stories from 2016 while Barack Obama was still president to see the globalists under Joe Biden are starting off again right where they left off.
While things have been relatively quiet on the World War 3 front for the past 4 years with President Trump in office and he 'keeping the peace' with Vladimir Putin and Russia, we get a small glimpse of what the next 4 years might look like with the globalists quick to turn Russia into a 'boogeyman' again.
As we had reported back on October 27th of 2016, soon before the election, in this story titled "Russian General Has Alarming Warning For Americans: 'We Are Teetering On The Brink' - Russia Warns Globalists Trying To Turn The Entire World Into 'Uncontrolled Chaos'", the globalists way back then were pushing heavily for some kind of 'confrontation' with Russia. And while President Trump got into office and all of those fears of World War 3 'went away', it didn't take long for the demons to bring them back, with words like 'Pearl Harbor' and 'the perfect storm' being thrown around like Christmas candy.
THORNER: IS JOHN ADAMS' WARNING ABOUT OUR CONSTITUTION COMING TO PASS?
By Nancy Thorner -
It is becoming more and more obvious to millions of Americans that the November 3rd election was a scam election.
Consider the House race still being contested a month and a half after election night in New York's 22nd Congressional District. As Syracuse.com reported, Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi's campaign has asked for about 60 rejected ballots in New York’s Madison County to be counted as he faces a 12-vote deficit against Republican challenger Claudia Tenney. On election night Tenney was ahead by 24,000 votes.
Consider also the pathetic rally Biden held in Atlanta, Georgia for Ossoff and Warnock on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 on the parking at Pratt Pullman Yard, basically an empty warehouse. Where were the people from a guy that got 81 million votes? How can a whole society built on obvious lies like “President Biden got 81 million votes” exist much longer?

The Beverly area warrants the descriptor “fortress” in part because of exclusionary zoning — the practice of inflating home prices through banning a wide range of housing types and residential lot arrangements.
By Letters to the Editor Dec 19, 2020, 4:00am CST
Living in Beverly on Chicago’s South Side, I frequently hear the sentiment that the neighborhood is a “village” in the city. Quite to the contrary, however, I am coming to believe that the term “fortress” may be more fitting.
Many factors buttress the fortress metaphor, some benign and some nefarious. Clearly, there is the residency requirement that keeps city workers within city limits; but then there is also a history of systematic elimination of “Black” spaces; and perhaps most unmissable in the community are the number of curbs placed to separate Beverly from its majority-Black neighbors to the east.
