A judge has reinstated all charges brought against an Amtrak engineer for his role in a high-speed derailment in Philadelphia that killed eight people.
The ruling Thursday (May 14, 2020) by Superior Court Judge Victor Stabile overturns a lower court’s decision last July to dismiss the involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges against Brandon Bostian.
The derailment happened in May 2015, when the New York-bound train jumped the track as it rounded a curve at more than twice the 50 mph speed limit.
This case is a classic study in political bias. First, the engineer, who obviously survived the crash, is gay and was a gay activist at the time of the crash. Second this accident is yet another example of the terrible record of government-run Amtrak to move passengers expeditiously and economically, even over short distances.
Third, the Fake News media have done everything in their power to cover for Bostian since he is gay and works for government-run Amtrak. And thus we don’t really know what happened since the media will not investigate and Bostian says he doesn’t remember the crash. Amtrak surely is covering up the truth as well.
Nikitas3.com wonders whether Bostian was an incompetent affirmative-action engineer who was hired simply because he was gay. He was going 106 miles per hour when he should have been going 50. So there was something very wrong. Media reports say he was “distracted” but that does not explain going 106 MPH. Was he suicidal? Was he having some sort of emotional breakdown?
After all, gays have notoriously high levels of mental problems and high rates of sickness, depression, suicide, drug abuse and accidents. There was another famous fatal passenger train crash in Chatsworth, California in 2008 involving a homosexual engineer whose partner had previously committed suicide. But the Fake News media never mentioned those facts.
Here is a similar case involving a 27-year old German co-pilot named Andres Lubitz who intentionally crashed an airliner into a mountainside in March 2015, killing 144 passengers and five crew members. The Daily Express in Britain reported:
A police source in Dusseldorf said: “We have a team disassembling his computer, and that of his girlfriend, because the information that we received was that he trawled the dark side of the web visiting, among other things, sites containing gay porn, suicide themes and sexual perversions.”
Lubitz also endured the nickname “Tomato Andy”, a German term for repressed homosexuals and a dig at his previous job as a flight attendant.
There is another political angle to the Philadelphia case. The media and our Nanny State safety fanatics have been howling for decades that all American railroads must install a system called PTC, or positive train control. It is an extremely expensive computerized traffic control system that is supposed to be installed on more than 100,000 miles of freight railroad tracks. It has never been proven to work over such a large system.
In 2009, a crash on the Washington, DC metro system killed 8 and injured 80. The tiny system had PTC but that did not prevent the accident. So we have no idea whether PTC will protect a nationwide system; Nikitas3.com does not believe that such a massive system will work. Yet the freight railroads are being forced to invest more than $20 billion into PTC.
Amtrak had been free to install PTC on its 237 mile track between New York, Philadelphia and Washington, but never did so until after this accident. So we must wonder why.
The reason is simple: Amtrak is a bloated government bureaucracy that is too busy protecting its franchise and its unionized workers’ paychecks and benefits to consider spending money that it is not required to spend. Until something really bad happens, that is.
Never-Trumper Abandons Potential Presidential Bid
Congressman Justin Amash is an Independent US congressman from Michigan who was first elected as a Republican in 2010, became an outspoken anti-Trumper and quit the GOP in 2019. He recently launched an exploratory committee for the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination in 2020. But Amash has dropped out. The Trump Curse strikes again!
It turns out that Amash did not like president Trump getting tough on China and so he became an anti-Trumper. Why? Because Amash and his brother co-own a Chinese company called Dynamic Source International that employs Chinese labor rather than employing Michinganders. DSI supplies Michigan Industrial Tools, a Michigan company owned by Amash’s brother. Human Events reports:
In 2010 the Michigan Live website detailed how Amash and his family were ostensibly profiting from the creation of tools in China which were then sold by the Amash family business in Michigan.
(Amash’s) 2017 Financial Disclosure Report details the congressman reported between $100,001 and $1,000,000 in income from a company called Michigan Industrial Tools, which in turn is owned by Dynamic Source International, based in China. Dynamic Source International manufactures products overseas and sells them in the United States via Michigan Industrial Tools (MIT).
So there you go. There are tens of thousands of people across America who are closely tied to China. Virtually every one of them is a Democrat or anti-Trumper and they are all pro-China and will never question the communist government there as Trump is doing. They now are doing everything in their power to shift the spotlight from China for the virus that China has unleashed on the world.
Great Trump Rally in Massachusetts
We held a “stand out” for president Trump with signs, banners and American flags at a busy intersection in ultra-liberal Massachusetts on Saturday, May 16. We got a huge amount of enthusiastic horn-honking and thumbs-ups. In Massachusetts!
At our rally, there were about 25 people attending, and not a single one was wearing a face mask despite a Massachusetts order to wear masks. This is great. Face masks are the new wardrobe of the trembling losers in America who are terrified of a virus that is not even going to affect 99.5% of Americans. Masks themselves are even known to make people sick.
Regarding the rally, Nikitas3.com has said since 2016 that president Trump is much more popular than the Fake News media will ever admit and this appears to be confirmed from our ‘stand out’.
Nikitas3.com also believes that Trump will be re-elected easily, and that the Chinese virus epidemic is helping Trump. His approval numbers are reaching record highs in some polls, and there is a very significant thing going on in many states that is going to help to put him over the top.
In four so-called ‘battleground states’ that Trump needs to win re-election – Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin – Democrat governors have clamped down hard on the freedom of the people to allegedly fight the virus.
This is galvanizing the anti-Democrat, pro-Trump movement. These protesters are more “enthusiastic” than ever about going out to vote for the president in November, and ‘enthusiasm’ is a known political phenomenon that wins elections.
Added note: Nikitas3.com had been planning to purchase a blue Trump banner, and I got one at the rally that says TRUMP 2024. You can’t beat that!
PJ Media describes a lawsuit filed against the Democrat governor of Michigan by medical providers who have been banned from doing elective surgeries under the Chinese virus lockdown:
The lawsuit goes onto describe the very serious complications that patients have experienced as a direct result of being denied their elective procedures, including a patient who needed a damaged feeding tube repaired and another who needed gall-bladder surgery and didn’t get it, which led to gangrene. The lockdown has literally sentenced medically fragile people, who would have been fine if they had been able to seek medical care, to life-threatening or even deadly conditions. And there was no good reason not to allow them in the nearly empty hospitals in Michigan. “Graphics depicted that while Governor Whitmer’s administration anticipated 220,000 patients being hospitalized without social distancing efforts, there had only been 3,000 hospitalizations as of April 27,” the lawsuit states. “That is less than 1.4% of the projected COVID-19 hospitalizations underlying the governor’s declared states of emergency and disaster.”
This is typical. Look at the discrepancy between 220,000 patients and 3,000. And here are the three reasons that Democrat governors are so obsessed with locking down their states:
*They believe, and are required to believe, the radical propaganda put out by Dr. Fauci and other government fraudsters about the seriousness of the virus, which is being proven false every day as time passes. This is just like the fake ‘global warming’ propaganda that all Democrats are required to believe.
*These governors are terrified that if they open up their states that they will take the blame if the virus spreads, even though it is not spreading in states that are opening up. Health and Human Services secretary Alex Azar said, “We are seeing that in areas that are opening, we’re not seeing the spike in cases. We still see spikes in some areas that are, in fact, closed…”
*These governors want to crush the small business owners in their states, who are largely conservative and white.
Cuomo Crashes and Burns in Virus Crisis
While Democrats and the Fake News media were slobbering all over the daily news briefings given by Democrat New York state governor Andrew Cuomo over the Chinese virus crisis, Nikitas3.com warned repeatedly that Cuomo is a demagogue who talks smoothly in his sing-song voice but says nothing of value.
Well, it’s truer than ever. It turns out that Cuomo had signed an executive order that forced nursing homes to accept elderly virus patients. This spread the virus like crazy around the nursing homes and killed thousands of people.
The word is now out about this crisis and Cuomo’s name has become political mud. Republican congresswoman Elise Stefanik, who represents the Adirondack Mountain region of Upstate New York in the US Congress, is demanding a federal probe into Cuomo’s policy and also into the possible under-counting of virus deaths in New York state nursing homes.
New York state has estimated that more than 5,000 nursing home and longterm-care facility patients have died from the virus, but a new report says that the state could be drastically under-reporting the deaths. All in all, it looks really bad for Cuomo.
Stefanik is a Harvard graduate and a political superstar who was the youngest woman ever elected to the US Congress when she was first elected in 2014. She tweeted about Cuomo:
“Today I joined my [New York GOP] colleagues in the House to call for a federal investigation of Cuomo’s failed nursing home policies NOW they admit they unethically changed the way they report nursing home deaths. An INEXCUSABLE tragedy for NY — NEED ANSWERS.”
This, friends, is the end for Cuomo ever becoming president. And this is the beginning for Stefanik. You just watch. This woman could be president of the United States someday. Nikitas3.com has long predicted that The First Woman President would be a Republican, and while we will certainly see another woman president before Stefanik like former UN ambassador Nikki Haley or South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, Stefanik is definitely someone to keep your eye on. She is only 35 years old.
Update: Cuomo knows that this nursing home scandal is going to sink him. He said that “nobody should be prosecuted” for the order. Obviously he is starting to get that sinking feeling that he is going to bear the blame for the order.
Chick-fil-A Shows Amazing Growth
Just to show how liberal boycotts always backfire, the Chick-fil-A fast food chain, maligned by Democrats for years over its Christian founder, is today the second-highest-grossing fast-food chain in the United States even though it is one of the newest.
Chick-fil-A saw a 13 percent sales growth in 2019, and has surpassed Taco Bell and Burger King to finish behind #1 McDonald’s, according to data from Restaurant Business Magazine’s annual list of top 500 restaurants.
This is great news and liberals lose again. By boycotting Chick-fil-A they simply called attention to the company, which is very popular among diners. Chick-fil-A has gotten high marks for years not only for its food but for its service too. But that would be expected from a Christian owner. Chick-fil-A is even closed on Sundays.
Anti-Trumper Scarborough Joked about Killing Intern
Joe Scarborogh is the anti-Trump MSNBC host of a show called Morning Joe. Ironically Scarborough was a Republican congressman from Florida from 1995 to 2001. In 2001, an intern named Lori Klausutis was found dead in Scarborough’s congressional office. Her death has been deemed an accident.
But many of us, including president Trump, have expressed suspicion over Klausutis’ death. And it turns out that Scarborough even joked about it once.
During a phone interview between the radio host Don Imus and Scarborough in 2003, Imus suggested “you said you had sex with an intern and then you had to kill her.”
“Exactly,” Scarborough responded with a laugh.
“That’s pretty risky to say,” Imus responded.
“What are you gonna do?” Scarborough continued to joke.
This is sick stuff and it raises the question of why Scarborough, who was a pro-Trump Republican, has suddenly become such an anti-Trumper. It suggests that somebody could possibly have dirt on Scarborough over the death of Klausutis and so he has been threatened to turn on Trump.
Government Bureaucrat Suggests Getting Rid of White People
The Gateway Pundit reported:
Dr. Carol Baker was appointed Chair of the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices in 2009. She is well known for her work in immunization and education.
The Houston doctor sat on an “expert” panel of experts sponsored by the National Meningitis Association in New York City on May 9, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. During the panel discussion the far left doctor took a swipe at Donald Trump and white Americans. Dr. Baker told the gathered audience,
Dr. Carol Baker: “So I have the solution. Every study published in the last five years, when you look at vaccine refusers. I’m not talking about…hesitance, most of them we can talk into coming to terms. But refusers. We’ll just get rid of all the whites in the United States… Guess who wants to get vaccinated the most? Immigrants.”
This is part of the racist sickness on the left. And since Baker herself is white, you must understand the dynamic involved – Baker hates herself, as all liberals do.
