There are now 337,980 sealed indictments.

There are 607,842 unsealed indictments.

That's nearly a million. Would you bet that Sandberg's name can be found in amongst the near million indicted?

Think RICO <-- ORGANIZED Crime Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act

ALL those who conspired as a group... fall under RICO. Use your imagination. The numbers begin to make sense.

Conn. Secretary of State Denise Merrill resigns​



Channel 3's Chief Political Reporter Susan Raff sits down with Denise Merrill to discuss her career.
By Susan Raff
Published: Jun. 29, 2022 at 8:45 PM EDT|Updated: 22 hours ago



HARTFORD, Conn. (WFSB) - On Tuesday, Connecticut’s Secretary of State Denise Merrill announced she was resigning,
She says this was a tough decision, but it was one she needed to make.
Merrill oversaw making sure people can vote, and making sure elections are secure.
“Sometimes life throws you a curveball,” says Merrill. “Ever since my husband got sick over the winter, I’ve been wondering how I am going to manage it all.”
Her husband, Stephen Leach has been struggling with Parkinsons and now needs full time care. Merrill announced earlier this year that she was not running for reelection.
She is now stepping down six months before her term ends.
Merrill has worked as Secretary of the State for twelve years, and it hasn’t always been easy.
Merrill pushed for legislation that requires registrars to show they have enough ballots prior to an election after an election in Bridgeport ran out of ballots in 2011.
Merrill also fought against cyber-attacks and Russian interference. She also pushed for early voting.
“Secretary of the States around the country tried to make it more difficult to vote. She’s tried to make it easier to vote with integrity. She’ll be sorely missed,” says Governor Lamont.
Merrill began her career in the general assembly with Susan Bysiewicz, the former Secretary of the State who is now the Lieutenant Governor.
“She made sure during the pandemic that absentee ballots were made for everyone. It showed how popular they were because somewhere between 35 to 40 percent of the people in presidential primary voted using absentee ballots,” says Susan Bysiewicz.
She says what happened during the last presidential election has damaged trust.
“We have a former president who is claiming the election was fraudulent and so we all still have respect for a president and when he says those things, he must be right. He must be right he’s the president. We have an uphill battle,” says Denise Merrill.
The governor is expected to appoint a new Secretary of State in the next couple of days. Merrill says she plans on working with other Secretary of States to ensure voter access as well as fair elections.
Merrill’s last day is Thursday.

As always, the Good Reason is not the REAL reason.

A long, mail-in, Early-Voting period, is not for voter access.

It's for DNC and Dominion access. It's for FRAUD.

NO other reason. I think everyone who can be persuaded, now understands that.

The rest...they seem to think that fraud will only get "their" people installed. What they don't understand, because they're stupid, is: They lose control of the process as much as we do; and when the ideas they like, fail, they'll be as consumed, as enslaved, as impoverished, as we will be.

But, stupids gonna stupid. And we're really in Peak Stupid right now.

that was originally Why we voted on Tuesday

Sunday a day for the Lord, pray for 'safe travel'
Monday a day for travel to the polling station
Tuesday a day for voting with parties and celebrations
Wednesday a day for travel home
Thursday continue daily life and read the local newspapers to find out who won and how it will affect your Parish / County / Town / City


this country still has the blueprints for how to succeed...still has the DNA within it to pull this off...

The people in decision posts, want it NOT to work.

Those who do, are not in any position of control or authority. Removed or simply not in the system.

This is a revolution from within.

Missouri state rep resigns after federal conviction for COVID-19 fraud scheme​

BY ZACH SCHONFELD - 07/04/22 12:37 PM ET
SHARETWEET



A Missouri state lawmaker resigned on Friday after a jury found her guilty on 22 counts for fraudulently accepting hundreds of thousands of pandemic-era federal stimulus dollars and other offenses.
Missouri state Rep. Tricia Derges (R) was convicted on Tuesday after she applied for nearly $900,000 in CARES Act funds for what she said were COVID-19 testing costs incurred by nonprofit Lift Up, but the organization never provided any testing services, according to a press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ).
Derges was also found guilty on Tuesday in separate schemes in which she fraudulently marketed a stem cell treatment and illegally prescribed drugs to patients.
“It has truly been an honor to serve the citizens of the 140th District,” Derges wrote in her resignation letter, where she made no mention of the charges. “They are some of the finest people I have ever met. To be a part of the process that helped bring positive change to our community and to assist with many of the personal struggles of my constituents is something I will forever treasure.”
The DOJ said Lift Up’s medical clinic closed from the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020 until June that year, and Derges supported her funding claim by providing COVID-19 test receipts for her for-profit Ozark Valley Medical Clinic.
The clinic had already charged clients $167 per test, according to the DOJ, but a county commission paid Derges’s nonprofit $296,574 in CARES Act funds based on the fraudulent request. Derges then transferred the funds to her for-profit clinic.
“She violated her position of trust to selfishly enrich herself at the expense of others,” said U.S. Attorney Teresa Moore in a statement. “But a jury of her peers, in a unanimous verdict, saw through her smokescreen of excuses and ridiculous claims, and now she will be held accountable for her criminal behavior.”
Derges was found guilty of three counts of wire fraud in the scheme.

The jury convicted Derges on another seven counts of wire fraud for charging patients a combined amount of nearly $200,000 for what she fraudulently marketed as a stem cell treatment at her for-profit clinic. The jury additionally found her guilty on two counts of making false statements for telling federal agents the treatment contained stem cells when she knew it did not, in addition to other untrue information.
The jury also found Derges guilty of 10 counts of illegally drugs over the internet without a valid prescription. The DOJ said Derges, a licensed assistant physician, wrote electronic prescriptions for Oxycodone and Adderall without conducting in-person medical evaluations of the patients.
Derges now awaits sentencing, with the charges she was convicted on carrying a maximum combined sentence of 410 years in prison.

Four ministers in the Victorian government resigned and won't be seeking re-election in October. The deputy leader of the National party in Victoria is also leaving politics.



Rats fleeing a sinking ship. They know they will be held to account so they think resigning will save their skins. It will not save them...

New York Republican drops out of state Senate race — and quits the GOP


On Wednesday, local news outlet WGRZ reported that former Republican Erie County Executive Joel Giambra has suspended his campaign for New York state Senate — and left the Republican Party altogether.

"In an email sent to friends and supporters, Giambra said he, 'can no longer remain a Republican or continue with my campaign to seek the Republican nomination for Senator in the 61st District,'" said the report.

I'll tell you what...410 years is extreme..we're gonna cut it down to.....90! We do care that you honored all of us.

Be thankful we don't pull a Game of Thrones on your ass, where a woman was chained in a cell, watched her daughter die of the same poison which killed her jailers daughter, and was to be force fed, kept alive, to see said daughter ROT in front of her eyes!

See, we ARE compassionate. Bailiff!!.....

Kaja Kallas, Estonia’s first-ever female prime minister, submitted her resignation to President Alar Karis on Friday.

Estonia’s Kallas has stepped down until she can be reappointed prime minister of the new coalition

Kaja Kallas, Estonia’s first-ever female prime minister, submitted her resignation to President Alar Karis on Friday. The move is part of a month-long effort to put together a new coalition government, after Kallas lost the support of her erstwhile junior partner and with it the parliamentary majority. A new cabinet will include three parties and, once it’s finalized, the Riigikogu is expected to approve Kallas as the PM again.

“I myself submitted this resignation proposal,” Kallas told the Estonian outlet Delfi, explaining that she wished to avoid “noise and discontent” if she simply appointed new ministers.

The announcement came after her Reform party reached a power-sharing deal with two smaller parties, the Social Democrats and Isamaa (Fatherland).

“Habemus papam,” Kallas tweeted on Friday, using the Latin expression for the election of a new pope to herald the deal.

The Baltic state has been facing a cabinet crisis since June 3, when Kallas’s coalition with the Center Party (Eesti Keskerakond, EK) fractured over the push to make all elementary education in Estonian only – banning the use of Russian in the former Soviet republic.

The Centrists’ departure left Kallas with only 34 seats in the 101-member legislature, which meant that the Social Democrats and Isamaa could drive a hard bargain for their nine and 12 seats, respectively.

In addition to the education bill, the three parties stumbled over family and energy subsidies, as Estonia faced skyrocketing energy prices due to the EU embargoes against Russia. While they have reached an agreement on the policies, the three parties are still working on the composition of the new cabinet. The Social Democrats’ leader, Lauri Laanemets, said it could be in place by the end of next week.

President Kariis welcomed the new coalition deal, saying it came “at the twelfth hour,” and that the new cabinet must be formed quickly amid the “acute security crisis” he blamed on Moscow.

“Estonia will have new ministers who must quickly start work to lead our people through the challenges of inflation and energy prices that lie ahead in autumn and winter,” said Karis, according to the national broadcaster ERR.

Kallas became prime minister in January 2021, after the resignation of the Centrist PM Juri Ratas, following a scandal. She has been a vocal advocate of anti-Russian sanctions over the conflict in Ukraine, calling for the EU to arm the Kiev government.Even as she negotiated the new government on Friday, she was tweeting about a new €2 coin minted by the Estonian central bank, which will feature the slogan “Slava Ukraini” (Glory to Ukraine).

Over 300 Virginia state employees resign in wake of Gov. Youngkin's telework policy​

Dean Mirshahi - Friday
React868 Comments|

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — More than 300 employees from five state agencies have resigned since Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Virginia’s new telework policy in early May, according to records obtained by 8News.

© Provided by WRIC RichmondOver 300 Virginia state employees resign in wake of Gov. Youngkin's telework policy
This includes 183 Virginia Department of Transportation employees, 28 of whom cited “telework options” as the reason for leaving. Two VDOT workers who listed telework as the reason did move to another state agency, records obtained by 8News after filing a Freedom of Information Act request show.
On May 5, Youngkin ordered all state workers to begin working in-person full-time by July 5, a change the governor said would “balance the demands of government services with the needs of our public servants.”
Other state agencies and divisions, including the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia Employment Commission (VEC), provided employment resignations since Youngkin’s announcement in May after 8News filed public record requests.
In state employee survey, Youngkin's telework policy described as ‘chaos'
According to those records, VDH had 78 resignations and VEC had 37 resignations from May 5 to June 27. Virginia’s Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) had seven resignations from May 5 to July 6 and Virginia’s Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) had six resignations from May 4 to July 7.
“Unfortunately we’re not surprised by this information,” Dylan Bishop, a lobbyist for the Virginia Governmental Employees Association (VGEA), told 8News Friday. “We had anticipated that the shift in policy would result in an exodus of workers, which is really concerning because of the state’s recruitment and retention issues.”
Most of the departments did not provide reasons for the resignations, but VDH shared that 29 former workers cited “Better Job,” three said “Dissatisfied,” six cited “Home Responsibilities,” two listed “Illness,” seven said they were leaving the area, three cited “School” and 27 listed “Other” as the reason.
“The governor is excited to welcome the Commonwealth's workforce back in person and is encouraged by their continued dedication to serving Virginians,” Rob Damschen, Youngkin’s deputy communications director said in a statement. “We know an office-centric environment fosters collaboration and teamwork and provides an even greater level of service for all Virginians.”

He said VGEA, a volunteer, nonpartisan organization that advocates for Virginia state employees, surveyed its members and the results showed that some felt the policy was rushed, confusing and inefficient.
Bishop added that while most leave the public sector due to compensation concerns — 31 VDOT employees who resigned since May 5 cited compensation as the reason — the change in Virginia’s telework policy has left many state workers to question their next moves.
8News filed record requests for just seven of the several state agencies in Virginia, five of which reported resignations since Youngkin’s telework policy was made public. The data shared with 8News comes from a handful of state divisions and agencies and only represents a small portion of the workers employed by the state.
According to Virginia’s Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM), there are 57,575 state workers that it considers “classified employees” and 36,261 are not eligible for telework, including law enforcement, health care workers and department of correction workers.
BACKGROUND READING: Youngkin telework changes could make state jobs less competitive with private business, expert says
An unknown number of Virginia state employees have been working remotely since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The stricter telework policy allows employees to submit applications to work remotely, but with various approval processes depending on the number of days per week requested.
Agency heads approve requests to work remotely one day a week, Cabinet secretaries evaluate requests for two days per week and Youngkin’s chief of staff, Jeff Goettman, reviews applications seeking three or more days of remote work a week.
State employees were given two weeks to submit telework applications and the administration set a June 3 deadline to review all of the requests, but Youngkin missed that goal. The governor’s office told 8News that some agencies received an overwhelming amount of requests and some workers submitted applications late. Still, the July 5 back-to-work deadline remained in place.
Bishop added that Youngkin’s failure to meet his deadline but expecting state workers to adhere to the rules set out in the policy brought a “loss of trust in the administration.” He also said that some workers were hired during the pandemic and never went to the office, leaving them concerned over not having an office to go to and how that could impact their positions.
Back to the office: Youngkin wants state employees working in person as soon as possible
A member of Youngkin’s office told 8News there are 21,314 state employees eligible for telework and 46% of those workers (9,866) chose a telework option. Nearly 90% of that group (8,820) requested to work remotely one to two days per week, 1,046 employees requested to telework for three or more days and 641 have submitted applications to telework five days a week.
It’s unclear how many state employees returned to the office when the deadline hit. But data obtained through 8News’ public record requests shed some light on the status of the telework requests.

Youngkin’s office withheld specific details on requests for two or more days of telework, citing a personnel exemption, but told 8News in its FOIA response on July 7 that there were 1,500 final applications. The governor’s office said it was not in custody of applications for one day of telework.
Here are snapshots of what was provided to 8News from certain state departments:

The Virginia Department of Transportation​

As of July 1, VDOT sent 1,409 telework requests to the Secretary of Transportation and 209 to Youngkin’s chief of staff for approval.
VDOT Commissioner Stephen Brich did not approve any requests from employees seeking to telework one day a week as of July 1, but there were 425 pending requests for him to review at that time, according to records shared by the department.
Some requests for five days were adjusted to two days a week and later approved by the secretary, a change reflected in numbers provided to 8News showing that 1,426 two-day requests were approved, nine applications for three-days of telework were approved and 183 applications for five days of telework a week were approved.
Of the 183 full-time requests, 39 are temporary requests “due to a facility renovation that has limited the capacity of that facility,” VDOT said in its FOIA response.

The Virginia Department of Emergency Management​

According to records shared with 8News, VDEM has 166 full-time employees and 137 telework agreements have been approved, 24 are pending approval and none have been denied.
VDEM did not send requests to the governor’s chief of staff and 83 went to the Cabinet secretary, VDEM said in its July 7 response to 8News’ FOIA request.

The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development​

Virginia’s Department of Housing and Community Development had 147 out of 147 telework requests approved, including 42 from the Cabinet secretary’s office and 43 from Youngkin’s chief of staff, according to an email from the department on July 6.
“Please understand that this information is current as of the date of this response and that these statistics will continue to be fluid based on new hires, separations, job changes and work-life changes,” Kyle Flanders, a senior policy analyst and regulatory administrator for DHCD, wrote in an email.

The Virginia Department of Elections​

The state’s Department of Elections said it could not provide details regarding individual telework agreements, but noted in its FOIA response on July 5 that 52 had been approved. According to the department, that is 92% of eligible employees.
As of July 5, 10 telework requests have been denied or modified since May 4, five went to the Cabinet secretary’s office and 24 were sent to Youngkin’s chief of staff.

The Virginia Department of Education​

Out of the 515 classified positions within the state’s Department of Education eligible for telework, 501 workers submitted applications, according to its FOIA response on June 27.
There were 194 requests pending approval by the Cabinet secretary’s office, out of 202 requested, and requests for three or more days of telework per week were at 233 as of June 27, with 49 pending.

Virginia Employment Commission​

The Virginia Employment Commission received 454 telework requests, three being denied, five going to the Cabinet secretary’s office and 48 sent to the governor’s chief of staff, records from June 27 shared with 8News.
VEC did not share how many applications had been approved by then.

The Virginia Department of Health​

As of June 27, VDH received 1,928 telework applications and sent 186 to the Cabinet Secretary and 276 went to Youngkin’s chief of staff for review.
The department did not provide additional details on approved or denied requests, stating in its FOIA response that they “are part of an employee’s personnel record.”
READ MORE: Virginia Democrats urge Youngkin to reverse state's new telework policy
In May, eight Democratic Virginia lawmakers called on the governor to delay the state's new telework policy, urging him to allow state agency heads to work with their employees on the return to their pre-pandemic work schedules after the Labor Day holiday and create an interagency work group to examine the current policy and share recommended changes.
The governor’s office did not grant the delay but did make adjustments, allowing state employees without alternatives for child care to request temporary telework agreements through Sept. 5 to work remotely up to five days a week. Youngkin’s administration agreed to grant accommodations to state workers under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The state is trying to track how many state workers were working out of the office during the pandemic. The state’s Department of Human Resource Management has to provide a report to lawmakers by Nov. 1 on the number of state workers who teleworked from March 2020 to July 4, 2022.
“What the administration has seen throughout this process is that out of the more than twenty-one thousand telework eligible employees, while nearly ten thousand opted for some level of telework, the vast majority chose to work in the office at least three days per week,” Damschen continued. “Governor Youngkin is thrilled by the shared commitment our state employees have to serve Virginians and looks forward to building on this progress together.”
Bishop told 8News that 46% of respondents in VGEA’s survey said they were working remotely at least one day a week before the pandemic and that Virginia is unsure of the total number of state employees who have been teleworking.
Nearby areas returned to in-person work much quicker than Virginia, with workers in Washington, D.C., and Maryland returning to the office last summer.

Italian PM Mario Draghi says he will resign as Rome’s coalition government collapses​

PUBLISHED THU, JUL 14 2022
Not the last, just the latest. They are dropping one by one. Wait until winter when the peasants start getting cold and hungry.

It makes me laugh. Putin, with his supposed terminal health conditions and assassins in the wait is still there, poking sticks at them. And he'll be the last man standing.

BRUSSELS, July 14 (Reuters) - Belgian Foreign Minister and deputy premier Sophie Wilmes has resigned, the cabinet announced on Thursday, to take care of her husband, former Australian footballer Chris Stone, who has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
Wilmes, who was Belgium's prime minister in 2019-20 and the first woman in that role, had already temporarily stepped down in April for the same reason, stating then that the situation would be re-evaluated during the summer. read more

“My husband's illness will be a difficult battle that I want to fight alongside him and alongside our children," Wilmes said in the statement. "My current duties in government would not allow me to do so."
In April, Prime Minister Alexander De Croo took over Wilmes' foreign affairs duties temporarily.
"Thank you for your dedication and commitment over the years. This isn't goodbye, till we meet again," De Croo told Wilmes in a Twitter post.

‘Wait, she HAD a speechwriter?!’ Kamala Harris’ chief speechwriter calling it quits after just 4 months on the job and LOL​

Kamala Harris’ second chief speechwriter is bailing after only four months on the job. To be honest, Kamala’s speeches have been so bad we thought she was winging it. Wow. Someone actually wrote those ridiculous speeches about the passage of time and used the word ‘seriously’ that much?
We imagine Kamala isn’t exactly fun to work for.


From Politico:

Vice President Kamala Harris’ director of speechwriting, Meghan Groob, is leaving the office less than four months into the job, two people familiar with the matter told POLITICO.
Groob was hired in April after Harris’ first chief speechwriter, Kate Childs Graham, left at the end of February. She had previously worked as a speechwriter for Bill Gates and as an editorial director at Gates Ventures.
You’d think someone who can deal with Bill Gates could deal with Kamala?

No?


Oh, and she’s not the only one who is leaving Kamala’s sinking ship.


Longest serving aide.

Nobody can stand to work for Kamala.

Gosh, we’re shocked … she seems so likable and approachable and stuff.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA, sorry, sometimes we crack ourselves up.

Perhaps it's not that the speechwriter wrote bad speeches for Kamala. Maybe Kamala can't read.

Her parting words...I, like everyone, likes everyone, liking everyone is something I like, like I said, like, ya know, like, everyone has likes and dislike...I dislike saying dislike because, like, I like everyone...except my bitch of an ex-boss.

It's called the uber papers in France. Leaked docs showing Macron was helping Klanic by changing french law.

Nailed it... The answer was about 3 days. Although I have not seen this reported yet really I think it is coming. Probably has to go write a family speech and all.
