Massive COVID spike erupts among detained illegal aliens as Biden’s border crisis continues

The Western Journal reports how a massive spike has erupted at the border as 1 million illegal aliens flood the area (a majority of whom are infected with COVID).

floodofillegalsThe number of migrant detainees who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley sector of Texas has soared by 900 percent this month, according to a new report.

Fox News reported, “There were 135 detainees who tested positive in the first two weeks of July alone, marking a 900% increase in confirmed positive cases compared to the previous 14 months.”

The report added, “The RGV sector is one of the main destinations for migrants crossing the border, seeing more than [2,000] apprehensions each day and accounting for 60% of confirmed positive detainees in the U.S. Border Patrol custody.”

Doctors Raise Awareness on Ivermectin Treatment for COVID-19

The Epoch Times reports that doctors now have been allowed to raise awareness of the effectiveness of Ivermectin treatment for coronavirus.

In an effort to help end the pandemic, an international coalition of medical experts is holding worldwide events Saturday to raise awareness about the effectiveness of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19.

Organizers of the World Ivermectin Day say doctors and supporters of the inexpensive FDA-approved drug will host free online and public events in over a dozen countries.

Two nonprofits—Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance and the British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) group—who have been campaigning for the off-label use of ivermectin to prevent and treat COVID-19 say the event’s focus is to let more people know that the antiparasitic drug can treat COVID-19, possibly end the pandemic, and help eliminate fear of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

If President Trump had never mentioned hydroxychloroquine, the Democrats might have used it in their battle against the vaccines

Although the press would have you believe that Democrats “follow the science” and that those Democrats support doing anything to defeat the coronavirus, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made statements in September 2020 that called into question the coronavirus vaccines.

You might remember how Joe Biden tried to link vaccine skepticism to President Trump on 2 September 2020. Likewise, Kamala Harris pointed out how she wouldn’t trust a vaccine on 5 September 2020. Now, it seems that every third word of theirs has to do with coronavirus and mandating masks or pushing vaccines.

Conflicting school mask guidance sparks confusion

The Hill reports that all of the conflicting school mask guidance has sparked confusion.

Conflicting mask recommendations and orders from all levels of government and advocacy groups have emerged over the past few weeks, flustering the public as back-to-school season approaches.  

Confusion is mounting over whether children should wear masks in school and whether their vaccination status should play a role in any guidance ahead of next month, when many schools plan to fully reopen for in-person learning. 

President Biden addressed the debate this week, saying during a Wednesday town hall that he expects the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to urge unvaccinated students to wear masks in schools and to continue to advise vaccinated students that they don’t need masks. 

“The CDC is going to say that what we should do is, everyone under the age of 12 should probably be wearing a mask in school,” Biden said at the town hall, as those under 12 years old are currently ineligible to get vaccinated. 

But the American Academy of Pediatrics issued contradictory recommendations days before, calling for all students older than 2 t o wear masks in school, regardless of their vaccination status.

What is there about Democrats and schools that is not confusing?

When you think of Democrat initiatives and schools, what is there that is not confusing?

Why should a person with an X and a Y chromosome (and all of the bone mass, muscle mass, and body configuration associated with having had testosterone from birth) be able to compete athletically with girls? Does it show compassion to accommodate gender dysphoria (and possibly prolong the period that the person remains dysphoric — since most children transition out of gender dysphoria by late adolescence) when the the rate of suicide remains significantly higher among gender dysphorics?

Since America elected a Black President, one might assume that the majority of Americans have gotten over racism; however, with the introduction of Critical Race Theory, which postulates that a White person is racist because he or she is White, it would seem that racism has been injected into our political system. The last time I checked, only Democrats were supporting this.

Now, regarding masks, why would we want to force children to wear masks at school? Would it be because we think masks work so well? A CDC study found that masks were only 2% effective. Would it be because they think that there is no danger in children wearing masks? A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that excess carbon dioxide (hypercapnia) causes great damage to children and this comes from those children wearing masks. Additionally, a Johns Hopkins study found healthy children had a zero percent chance of catching or transmitting COVID.

Lockdown Lina jumps from attending big crowds to supporting another lockdown

A man-on-the-street reporter asks “Should COVID-19 vaccines be forced?

The Daily Caller reports on a man-on-the-street survey of people regarding their opinion of whether we should be forced to take the vaccine.

With the quick viewing of the respondents this video provides, it seems easy to split the thinkers from the feeler/followers

If you viewed the video, you know that the Daily Caller began its piece with a man who laughed at the idea that the government should be able to force you to get an injection and another who began with “I would like to think that.” On the other side, many of the young gave emphatic answers that they did not support with reason.

Additionally, it is interesting that the responses became an argument between American freedoms and the talking points of the COVID left (where emphasis remains on keeping the nebulous “others” safe). Possibly because the press never brings up the topic, these respondents never discussed the heart-related deaths of young people who have received the vaccine. It did not discuss how the delta and lambda variants constitute less virulent strains of coronavirus.

How Joe Biden and Jen Psaki are using COVID to silence conservatives

The Hill reports on the words that amount to a shot against Fort Sumter of our civil liberties.

President Biden on Friday said that social media companies that allow coronavirus misinformation to spread on their platforms are “killing people,” escalating a fight with Facebook and other companies as the White House warns about the spread of inaccurate information about COVID-19 vaccines. 

Biden was asked by reporters at the White House on Friday afternoon what his message is to social media platforms on coronavirus misinformation. 

“They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated. And they’re killing people,” Biden said.

Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued an advisory Thursday labeling health misinformation an “urgent threat” amid the Biden administration’s push to get more people vaccinated. Murthy said that misinformation is among a range of reasons why some Americans are not getting vaccinated against COVID-19 despite vaccinations being widely available.

“Modern technology companies have enabled misinformation to poison our information environment with little accountability to their users,” Murthy said during an appearance in the White House briefing room on Thursday. “They’ve allowed people who intentionally spread misinformation — what we call ‘disinformation’ — to have extraordinary reach.”

The White House is asking Facebook and other social media companies to be more aggressive in removing “harmful” posts that spread disinformation and flagging posts that spread information, according to White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Of course, as noted on a number of conservative blogs, Democrats often go silent on crimes

As recently pointed out by Bunkerville, Democrats can even go silent on the deaths of thousands across many states (as long as fellow Democrats will prosper from this silence).

More silence from Democrats — Jen Psaki refuses to say the number of breakthrough cases of COVID at the White House

The Daily Caller points out the hypocrisy of the White House as Jen Psaki refuses to lay out how many staff members have caught COVID from the Texas Democrats.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused Friday to say how many breakthrough cases of COVID-19 in vaccinated staff there have been at the White House.

A reporter pointed out how President Joe Biden’s administration touts its “transparency” during a White House daily briefing and inquired why it hadn’t released “the number of breakthrough cases” of “vaccinated staffers.”

There is nothing like pointing out the impotence of double vaccines to get Democrats to clam up

There are two things that stand out about the COVID cases caught due to the Texas Democrat flee-bags:

  • First, all of the Texas COVID victims and all three of the Washington victims (those reported before Jen clammed up) had been fully vaccinated
  • Second, these Democrats who had been preaching masks and would have been required to wear a mask had they taken public buses or commercial jets, wore no masks en route

Six of the Texas Democrats who ran away to DC test positive for COVID-19

The Daily Caller points out how six Democrats who went maskless on that private flight to Washington, D.C. have now contracted COVID.

Several of the Texas Democrats who fled the state to stall voting legislation tested positive Saturday for COVID-19.

statement from the Texas House Democratic Caucus said one member tested positive for the virus Friday, and two additional members tested positive Saturday morning. The House members were not identified and they were all fully vaccinated.

“The House Democratic Caucus is following all CDC guidance and protocols. This is a sober reminder that COVID is still with us, and though vaccinations offer tremendous protection, we still must take necessary precautions. We are in touch with public health experts in Texas to provide additional guidance. Our caucus will follow all recommendations from public health experts as we continue to work,” the statement read.

Vice President Joe Biden used private email to send classified material to Hunter Biden

The Western Journal reports in a 22 July 2021 article how Joe Biden sent government intelligence to Hunter Biden while Joe was Vice President.

DementiaJoeHistory has a funny way of repeating itself, doesn’t it?

When now-President Joe Biden was serving as vice president in the Obama administration, his son Hunter Biden was galivanting around the world (sometimes on Air Force Two) in his pursuit of various business deals over which much hay has been made by Biden critics.

This, of course, is quite fair. It is certainly worthy of note that the father and son jetted off to China together on the vice presidential plane in 2013 and Hunter returned with a business deal with a Chinese state-linked bank.

There’s also the matter of Hunter’s position on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian oil and gas company that was under investigation for corruption at the time that Vice President Biden was spearheading the Obama administration’s foreign policy in that nation, something which was likely impeded when Biden, by his own admission, pressured the government to fire the prosecutor heading up the probe by threatening to withhold millions in U.S. aid to the nation if he didn’t.

The senior Biden has adamantly denied having anything to do with his son’s business dealings, but the laptop that keeps on giving — that is, the laptop believed to have belonged to Hunter Biden that was abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019 — has produced emails that, if authentic, significantly undermine this case.

If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because it’s a lot like what failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was quite vocally accused of doing during the 2016 campaign. Those accusations serve as a cog in much of the so-called conspiracy theory surrounding the Obama White House, the deep state and longstanding accusations of illegal activity by the increasingly notorious former administration.

In the case of the Bidens’ private conveyance of State Department emails, at this point it appears to be considerably less suspicious than Clinton and her BleachBit operation, to be fair. But when you consider the Biden family history, well, it most certainly doesn’t look good.

Just the News reported Tuesday that then-Vice President Biden was sending emails to sons Hunter and Beau (who died in 2015) and others from the private email account robinware456@gmail.com, as per discoveries made on the Hunter Biden laptop.

This, along with the funds brought in by unskilled Hunter Biden during Joe’s Vice Presidency, might be grounds for impeachment

Just to name two things out of the long litany of things Biden has done that make him worthy of impeachment — we have this sharing of confidential material across an insecure medium of his personal email and we have all the instances of Hunter collecting vast sums of money from the Ukrainians, Chinese, and Russians. With some digging, I am certain we could find a thing or two more to charge him with.

Representative Boebert demands “Biden regime” explain alleged unequal treatment of Jan. 6 and BLM rioters

The Washington Times reports that Representative Boebert has called on Joe Biden to explain why he is not providing equal protection under the law.

BoebertRep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado led House Republicans demanding Tuesday that the Justice Department explain its reportedly disparate treatment of the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill rioters versus those 2020 Black Lives Matter rioters who attacked federal buildings.

In their letter, Ms. Boebert and 10 other House Republicans asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to address “the apparent inconsistent application of the law with respect to rioters across the country.”

“The foundation of our criminal justice system requires that all defendants are treated equally before the law, but the Biden regime is not living up to this solemn obligation,” said Ms. Boebert in a statement.

The letter said that Oregon prosecutors have signed off on at least a dozen “deferred resolution agreements in federal felony cases” from clashes in last year’s social-justice protests, while some Jan. 6 rioters have been held in solitary confinement.

“Reports are circulating that the Biden regime has held January 6th rioters in solitary confinement, while at the same time, they are letting BLM rioters that attacked federal buildings off with just a few hours of community service,” Ms. Boebert said. 

“This is not an equal standard of justice. I condemn all forms of political violence, and all political violence must be prosecuted fairly,” she said.

Last month, four Senate Republicans led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas sought information from Mr. Garland on “the limited prosecutions and minimal penalties given to rioters arrested during the spring and summer of 2020.”

During the 2020 protests, one federal officer, David Patrick Underwood, was shot and killed and more than 700 federal and local officers were injured, while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said there were 81 firearms burglaries; the loss of an estimated 1,116 firearms; 876 reported arsons; 76 explosive incidents, and 46 ATF arrests, the letter said.

Five people died in the Jan. 6 riots, but none at the hands of rioters. Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed by Capitol Police; three protesters died of accidental or natural causes; and Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick suffered two strokes and died the next day.

This unequal treatment was the first thing that came to mind when I heard of the 9-month prison sentence of Paul Allard Hodgkins

When I see some 10-year terms (instead of dropped charges) for stealing Apple televisions during the New York BLM riots, then I will believe that the 9-month sentence for walking into the capitol with a flag is a just sentence. When I see the Antifa members who tried to burn the Portland federal courthouse with people in it convicted by Biden’s Justice Department and sentenced to 40 years, then I might start to have some faith in our system.

Misinformation on COVID that will not be blocked

Featured

Biden claims that “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations”

At a CNN town hall in Cincinnati, Dementia Joe made a number of claims regarding vaccinations and getting COVID.

DummyInTheDoorFor one, he claimed, “You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”

Previous to that, he said, “If you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be hospitalized, you’re not going to be in the IC unit, and you’re not going to die.”

Would someone like to inform Joe that all ten members of the Texas delegation that came down with COVID were double vaccinated?

The vaccinated Pelosi staffer and the two vaccinated White House staffers would find it refreshing to know that they cannot contract the COVID that they caught.

Likewise, the the six Texas Democrats reported in this linked 21 July article and the additional four reported in a radio report would be very surprised to find that they really don’t have their cases of coronavirus.

My question is this: When will Joe’s Twitter, Facebook, and other social media accounts be pulled?

Since we know that Twitter and Facebook have no qualms about pulling the accounts of anyone in office and since this is quite definitely misinformation (which seems to be their gold standard for banning people), when will they pull down Joe’s accounts and block him?

Additionally, since Jen Psaki called for people who have been blocked by one social media platform to be blocked by all platforms in order to prevent the flow of misinformation — shouldn’t we apply the Biden regime model here?

Still, one good thing came from the town hall: we got Joe to admit it

As documented by the full transcript of the CNN town hall, we find:

No, I mean it. I’m not being facetious. Democrats and Republicans. I don’t care if you think I’m Satan reincarnated. …

On the lighter side

On the lighter side, the following joke takes advantage of the Democrats’ trip to Washington:

How about those Texas Democrats?

Audits in Texas, Pennsylvania, Arizona, …

After hundreds of voter fraud cases in 2020, a Texas State Representative calls for a Texas election audit

The American Independent reports on how Representative Steve Toth of The Woodlands, Texas has called for an audit of the 2020 election results.

steve-toth-texas-legislatureTexas state Rep. Steve Toth (R) on Monday announced that he had filed legislation calling for a “forensic audit” of the state’s 2020 election results.

Former President Donald Trump won Texas in 2020 by nearly 6 percentage points despite ultimately losing the national electoral college and popular vote to President Joe Biden.

Toth’s bill, the “Texas Voter Confidence Act,” would not audit all of the 11 million-plus votes that were cast in the state. Instead, the legislation calls for an audit in “every precinct in each county with a population of 415,000 or more.”

(continued)

“We need a forensic audit to uncover all the voter fraud,” Toth said in a statement accompanying his announcement.

He added, “Texans want to know more about the claims of voter fraud and deserve to have confidence in their elections.”

While there have been 500 cases of voter fraud alleged, this bill means little

Until the Texas legislature gets a quorum, nothing can progress. Therefore, even if this had a snowball’s chance during whatever session the Democrats do come back (and they will have to finally come back), then this would be a hard one to pass with Democrats.

Still, with the little trick the Democrats have pulled by running to D.C., they might be pressed by constituents to vote for this. Additionally, with the 500+ voter fraud cases charged in Texas, there might be some pressure to proceed with this.

A Trump-allied Pennsylvania lawmaker opens a Pennsylvania elections audit plan

Philadelphia NBC affiliate WCAU reported in a 7 July 2021 article how a Trump-allied (aka, in the Democrat-allied mind of the media, a devil) state Senator Doug Mastriano has laid out a plan for auditing the Pennsylvania 2020 election.

DougMastrianoA Pennsylvania state lawmaker and ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump is launching a “forensic investigation” of the state’s 2020 presidential election, demanding cooperation from counties and mimicking a widely criticized partisan effort in Arizona.

Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Franklin, issued letters to three counties Wednesday, giving officials there a sweeping information request, with the threat of subpoenas for holdouts who do not respond affirmatively by July’s end.

The effort is facing strident opposition from Democrats, and any Senate-issued subpoenas for a partisan Arizona-style “election audit ” will almost certainly be challenged in Pennsylvania’s courts. Arizona’s audit was widely criticized by both election experts and some Republicans.

The massive undertaking could cost millions of dollars and faces questions, such as who will do the work, how will it be funded and where such a vast amount of documents and equipment would be stored. The state’s attorney general, Democrat Josh Shapiro, called it a “partisan fishing expedition.”

Trump has persistently claimed the 2020 election was rigged against him, and pressured Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania and other states he lost narrowly to conduct an audit, as is happening in Arizona.

In an interview streamed online by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, Mastriano suggested the undertaking will be similar to that in Arizona, where Republicans are searching for evidence of fraud in what critics say is an attempt to discredit President Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

“As we go through the ballots, my desire is to recount them, but also forensically analyze with photographic material whether the ballots were copied or filled in by a human,” Mastriano told Bannon, saying he planned to study what type of paper was used, look for what he called software “shenanigans” and review the chain of custody for the ballots.

Mastriano is also asking for information from May’s primary election.

He has not returned messages, and questions about funding and logistics remain unanswered.

The Associated Press reported Friday that Mastriano has solicited legal advice from a Philadelphia-based law firm about the Senate Republican caucus using private money to finance consultants and lawyers on the undertaking.

Two Republican-controlled counties — Tioga and York counties — confirmed receiving letters Wednesday, as did the Democratic bastion of Philadelphia, the state’s largest city.

Top Senate Democrats quickly objected, saying they have “grave concerns about the authority and legality of such an audit,” and in a letter asked the Senate’s Republican majority leaders to “end this misguided and political farce immediately.”

Senate Republican majority leaders have been silent about it.

No county election board, prosecutor or state official has raised a concern over any sort of widespread election fraud in November’s election in Pennsylvania. Critics say an election audit is duplicative, given the legal requirements for each county and the state to review election results for accuracy and investigate any discrepancies.

Of course, Biden followed that with a plea of not examining “The Big Lie”

If there were no nefarious actions taken on part of the Democrats, then there are no reasons to grandstand against any recount.

Joe, if you did not cheat, then you don’t need to worry.

A.U.D.I.T. of elections: the pot is boiling out of control!

Red State points out how Democrats and some swampy RINOs have worked to subvert our representative republic.

Despite the best efforts by the Democrat-media complex and the execrable RINOs who are helping them, the revelations about what truly transpired during the 2020 election have not attenuated one iota over the past week. In fact, the trickle has become a veritable torrent! Before getting to that deluge of election-related reports, a few reminders are in order:

  • The Democrats can’t have it both ways, claiming that the election was the “most secure ever” while doing everything possible to preclude the verification of that simple claim through forensic audits.
  • Audits aren’t a “threat to democracy,” as the Democrats and their media sycophants continually bleat. In reality, standing in the way of audits undermines our constitutional Republic and the confidence that the American people have in our election processes, for without election integrity, anything is possible (including Democrat/Uniparty political hegemony ad infinitum against the will of the people).
  • If we have learned anything in the Age of Trump, the opposite of what Democrats claim is almost certainly the truth. The list is long of Democrat agitprop later proved to be false: Trump-Russia collusion, Trump is a stooge of Putin, Steele dossier, Ukraine phone call quid pro quo, Charlottesville, Trump is a dictator, clearing Lafayette Square with tear gas, inciting insurrection, and all the rest. Thus, their endlessly repeated claims that the 2020 election was the most secure in history with its corollary that any assertions of voter fraud are “baseless” are merely the next on the list of items that will be debunked – just as the mountain of evidence discovered and analyzed since Election Day is making obvious to all but the willfully blind.
  • Finally, to claim that those advocating for forensic audits must be stopped “to prevent this concerted effort to undermine our election,” as The Hologram read from his remarks prepared by his handler in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, is the opposite of the truth, as fraud vitiates everything, including a presidency.

Arizona election audit finds discrepancy, Senate president says: “Those numbers do not match”

The Washington Times points out in a 14 July 2021 article how the Maricopa County election audit has found discrepencies.

The audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County by the Arizona Senate has turned up a discrepancy with the numbers provided by the county officials.

Senate President Karen Fann said in an interview with radio host Mike Broomhead that the discrepancy was sufficient grounds for the legislature to acquire new ballot-counting machines.

Ms. Fann said the size of the discrepancy in the ballot count was unknown.

“They haven’t released a number yet,” Ms. Fann said in the interview on radio station KTAR. “However, we do know that those numbers do not match with Maricopa County at this point.”

Ms. Fann said the Senate’s auditors “want to make sure that every one of those check-and-balances match before they start doing the analysis of all the data they received.”

Recounts almost always produce some discrepancies with election-night returns. Usually, it’s just a few votes per precinct or a larger error in one jurisdiction for a known technical reason.

Discrepancies in favor of one candidate or the other tend to balance out over large jurisdictions such as states or congressional districts.

Approximately 2.1 million ballots are being recounted.

“We are finishing up — the vendor is finishing up what we call the aggregation: double-checking the spreadsheets against the blue tally sheets, against the scans they did on the ballots,” Ms. Fann told KTAR.

If the numbers don’t match, then lay it all out

Evidence of double-counting of Georgia ballots

Townhall comments in a 15 July 2021 article how evidence of double-counting of Georgia ballots has surfaced.

Fox News host and journalist Tucker Carlson is alleging criminal voter fraud was carried out in Fulton County, Georgia during the 2020 presidential election and backed up the claims during his show Wednesday night. 

“It now appears there actually was meaningful voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia last November. That is not a conspiracy theory, it’s true. From the beginning this show has tried to be fact based when we talk about the 2020 election results. Here’s what we know tonight, factually. At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double counted in Fulton County. That’s a total of more than 4000 votes. Those numbers come from a group called VoterGA, which along with Bob Cheeley sued to get them. The final tally from the double counts we know about amounts to more than 3300 votes for Joe Biden and 865 votes for Donald Trump,” Carlson said. “Now before you dismiss Bob Cheeley and VoterGA as dishonest partisan actors, keep in mind that the strongly left-of-center Atlanta Journal Constitution appears to agree with this, at least an outline. The newspaper reviewed the available digital ballot images independently and concluded hundreds of ballots were improperly duplicated.”

“Back-door meetings:” Lawsuit alleges elections agency secretly met with voting machine vendors to weaken security standards

The Daily Caller comments on the purported back-door meetings that occurred between voting machine vendors and elections officials according to a lawsuit.

A lawsuit filed by a federally appointed election advisor Tuesday alleged the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) secretly met with voting machine vendors to revise election security standards.

The complaint, filed Tuesday in the D.C. District Court by Free Speech For People and EAC advisor Philip Stark, alleged the EAC held meetings from July to August 2020 with voting systems manufacturers, behind closed doors, to discuss revising election security standards. The agency then published these revisions on Feb. 1, 2021, which Free Speech For People argued benefited manufacturers by reducing compliance costs, “without the proper notice and comment procedure required by law.”

The standards published in February, known as the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG), did not contain language that would have banned devices capable of connecting voting systems wirelessly to the internet, but did mandate these devices be disabled.

This was insufficient, the complaint argued, “because reliably, consistently, and effectively disabling the devices is complex and difficult.”

The EAC said the guidelines would still ban machines from connecting to the internet, according to the Associated Press.

“These back-door meetings resulted in secretly developed revisions to the standards that benefit manufacturers by weakening voting system security to reduce costs,” the group said in a statement.

The complaint also alleged the EAC had not allowed Free Speech For People to participate in the discussions, and refused to provide the group with the communications that took place during the meetings.

This is one area where daylight needs to be applied

While I am certain that clandestine meetings between election officials and voting machine vendors probably violates a tenet of the Freedom of Information Act, just the occurrence of these meetings should be enough to get the associated swamp dwellers ejected from government as of the next election (unless they are bureaucrats, then the nearest elected official should be pressured to fire them as soon as possible).

 

Four varying ways Biden has put America last

Featured

First, is Biden’s HHS ready to cast off HIPAA rules?

Biden does not champion your health, but control of you

OneNewsNow comments on Biden’s disregard for our health privacy.

AmericaLastThe Biden administration’s goal for vaccinations has been a moving target, but the latest is for 105 million adults to be fully vaccinated and 56% of adults to have had at least one shot. The administration recognizes that even making that goal is going to be a stretch, so the president says they have a plan to get there. (See earlier story)

“Now we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door to door – literally knocking on doors,” President Joe Biden said during a Thursday press conference as he described how the government plans to “get help” to Americans who remain “unvaccinated and unprotected.”

Americans, though, have privacy concerns, and are asking if their vaccine status is the government’s business. HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra says it is.

“The federal government has had to spend trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic. So, it is absolutely the government’s business; it is taxpayers’ business,” Becerra argued.

Dr. Alex McFarland, who co-hosts a daily program on American Family Radio, describes the administration’s tactic as nothing less than a brazen power grab.

“They’re using COVID as a contrivance to temporarily – with an eye to ultimately – suspend our constitutional rights,” says the Christian educator. “This is a moment of political opportunity for those who want to further erode our constitutionally protected rights, and we can’t let this happen.”

And he wonders: why the double standard? “What we’re basically hearing are arguments from the Left that we should suspend the very same constitutional right that the pro-abortion and pro-assisted suicide lobby has defended,” McFarland notes.

As he points out, those on the Left have argued for decades that no one has the right to impose or override a woman’s right to personal medical choices.

Of course, Obamacare was not about improving healthcare

Obamacare was promised to provide a benefit of $2,500 per family of four. It was purportedly supposed to allow us to keep our insurance plans, if we liked those plans (it did not). It was purportedly supposed to allow us to keep our doctors, if we liked our doctors (it did not).

What it really seems to have been planned to do was to drive us into a government-provided, single-payer plan (aka, socialist healthcare).

A man out on bond for seven felony charges was one of two people arrested in the fatal shooting of a man at his apartment.

Qiriathiam Phillips, 25, and Consetta Rao, 24, were both charged with murder in 29-year-old Tevin Watson’s death.

Rao is also charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon.

Biden, with his support for taking funds from police, has failed us here

To be sure, this is the fault of a conglomeration of Biden, Democrat social justice judges, a Democrat social justice District Attorney, and Lina Hidalgo (the leader of a set of Harris County judges all too willing to cut funds from local constables.)

Third, Biden leads in support of a national trend

Crime rates are spiking in Democrat-run cities

Fox News reports on Mitch McConnell’s comments on the rising crime rates across America.

The Left’s “defund the police” movement is “utter nonsense” in light of rising crime rates in cities across the country, Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said this week.

“Last year, all of this talk about defunding the police was utter nonsense,” McConnell told the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce on Thursday while back in his home state, according to WDRB-TV of Louisville.

“I think communities decide how many police they want to have. And my guess is, in every single community where you have an outburst of violence like this, local governments are going to decide how to respond to that. They don’t need any advice from me. But I think more police, rather than less police, is a really important decision.”

Several large cities like Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore and New York City cut their police department budgets last year as Black Lives Matter protesters demanded fewer officers on the streets.

Department cuts have coincided in many cases with an uptick in crime.

In Portland, Oregon, the city cut $16 million from the police budget last June, including an anti-gun violence unit, but after a spike in shootings since last summer, the city plans to reinstate it.

Fourth, Biden does not work for your budget

In the face of rising gas prices, Biden threatens to make it more expensive for energy companies to do business

The Daily Caller expounds on threats by Biden to make operation more expensive for energy companies.

TrojanJoePresident Joe Biden is emphasizing a tax code change targeting energy companies that would fund part of his American Families Plan and make gas prices rise.

“If we end tax breaks for fossil fuels and make polluters pay to clean up the messes they have made, that would raise $90 billion. I’m not asking them to do anything that is unfair. Just not going to subsidize them anymore,” Biden told a crowd in Crystal Lake, Illinois on Wednesday. Press Secretary Jen Psaki had touted the speech as promoting provisions of the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan that congressional Democrats will attempt to pass via the reconciliation process.

Biden appeared to be referencing a series of provisions in his $6 billion budget proposal for 2022. One provision, the intangible drilling cost deduction, would require oil and gas companies to pay more taxes on wells. Another, the Superfund excise tax, adds a tax to every barrel of crude oil that companies produce, in order to fund cleanups of Superfund sites.

Energy companies slammed the proposals when Biden introduced them.

“Increased taxes on American energy will only undermine economic recovery and job creation, push natural gas and oil investments overseas and lead to less government revenue, not more,” American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Mike Sommers told The Hill in May.

The national average of gas prices reached $3.13 per gallon over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, the highest since 2014. The Biden administration has attempted to downplay the costs, with Press Secretary Jen Psaki claiming in May that Americans “are paying less in real terms for gas than they have on average over the last 15 years—and they’re paying about the same as they did in May 2018 and May 2019.”

On 19 July, Biden proclaimed economic victory just as the market tanked

Just as Dementia Joe proclaimed “We brought this economy back from the brink,” the effects of his artificially-low FED interest rates, his 800+ new regulations on businesses, his misinformed policies with supposed allies, and his misguided ban on oil (which causes a tripling of costs of plastics materials and a doubling of hydrocarbon fuels).

 

The who, what, how, why, and where of illegal immigration now

Featured

Who: it is not just Mexicans, Central, and South Americans coming across our border

Invasion of the “extra-continentals”

The Christian Broadcast Network outlines the other nationalities (other than Mexican, Central, and South Americans) who are flooding our Southern border.

OSFOf the nearly 200,000 migrants coming to the US southern border each month, an increasing number are what’s called “extra-continentals.” They’re coming from around the globe, and they’re getting helped on their way by an unlikely source. 

On her June trip to Guatemala, Vice President Kamala Harris’ message to illegal migrants was a clear reversal of the Biden administration’s previous messaging.

“I believe if you come to our border, you will be turned back. Do not come. Do not come,” Harris said.

That suggestion doesn’t appear to be working especially on the Mexico/Guatemala border, in a place appropriately named “Smuggler’s Path.” 

The Suchiate River is very high right now because it’s the rainy season. People often make the dangerous trek on foot during the dry season. During the rainy season, migrants have to use boats to cross between the two countries. It’s technically illegal, but local people use boats to get to work or to go shopping in one country or the other. Now, however, if the crossers are migrants, they have to turn themselves in on the Mexican side.

Migrants cross the river at a rate of thousands per day, choking the streets of Mexico’s southernmost city, Tapachula.

Most of these migrants are not fleeing persecution, a claim required to qualify for asylum in the US. Generally speaking, the goal is simply the search for a better job. And that’s where true family separation begins.

Jairo, a Guatemalan migrant said, “I just called my wife, and when I called them, I was crying because I hear my little son crying, ‘Dad, come back.’ But I can’t.” 

The major drivers behind this wave are groups dedicated to streamlining illegal immigration into the US. That includes the U.N.-affiliated International Organization for Migration, which employs more than 9,000 worldwide and has a budget of almost two billion dollars. Its stated mission is to promote humane and orderly migration, which is helped along by tens of millions of US taxpayer dollars and grants from the likes of George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

What: the military has become Biden’s clandestine transportation service for illegal aliens

Tucker Carlson reports Biden administration using Texas Air Force base to transport illegal immigrants “secretly”

The Washington Examiner reviews the findings of Tucker Carlson who reported how Laughlin Air Force base has been found to have become a nexus for the distribution of illegal aliens.

Tucker Carlson reported President Joe Biden’s administration is using Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas to transport illegal immigrants “secretly,” citing leaked correspondence.

The Fox News host posted an image of an email, which appeared to be from Lt. Colonel Matthew Burrows, that alerted members of the base that “passenger aircraft” would be utilizing runways under the direction of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Border Patrol. Carlson said on Wednesday the correspondence was obtained from a “whistleblower,” adding the information was confirmed by the Pentagon.

“Over the next few days, weeks or months you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens,” the email read in part. “Please review the attached public affairs guidance on this issue.”

The correspondence pointed recipients to a statement that would be issued if inquiries were made.

“In coordination with the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Del Rio Border Patrol will be using the Laughlin AFB runway to transport undocumented non-citizens via a Boeing 737,” it read.

Burrows also told service members not to take pictures of the events, according to the correspondence.

“Do not take photographs and refrain from posting anything on social media,” he said. “If anyone asks you about it, refer them to public affairs.”

Under the swamp that ushered Biden to power, the military has become a socialist heaven

For those of us who value freedom, it should be alarming that an unelected general should be willing to talk of staging a coup against a duly-elected president; should attempt to gain power over the FBI, CIA, and other agencies; and would work to turn the military into a socialist/left wing camp. However, with General Milley, that seems to have happened. Therefore, to have millions of illegal aliens distributed clandestinely across the nation (and done so illegally) should come as no surprise to us.

How: Democrats plan to use budget reconciliation to push through amnesty

Republicans sound the alarm on Democrats’ amnesty push for illegal immigrants in $3.5 trillion budget package

Fox News speaks to the plan by Democrats to include amnesty for illegal aliens into the budget reconciliation bill that they will pass without Republican support.

Republicans are sounding the alarm over a Democratic push to include amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants in their budget reconciliation proposal, with the possibility that the effort could get through without the need for any Republican support.

“Conservatives need to focus on a critical fight that hasn’t gotten enough attention: the Democrats’ effort to stuff amnesty into a reconciliation bill,” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., tweeted Tuesday as part of a lengthy thread.

“Democrats are trying to sneak mass amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants through Congress under the cover of their budget scheme,” Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., tweeted. “They hope you won’t notice.”

Democrats announced earlier this week they have agreed to a $3.5 trillion budget resolution, which would advance a number of top liberal priorities.

Why: the reason Biden has killed Title 42 in order to really open the illegal alien floodgates

Representative Brian Babin: the “shell game” on the border and the end of Title 42

The Epoch Times interviews Representative Babin as he explains the end game of the Biden regime as they seek to eliminate Title 42.

“Processing and facilitating the release of illegal immigrants into the United States—that’s what they consider to be progress,” says Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) in reference to the Biden administration. He describes a “shell game” on the border in which crowds of immigrants are shuffled from one facility to another without solving the root problems.

We discuss the border crisis, the reversal of Trump-era border policies, and what Rep. Babin expects the end of Title 42 will look like.

Jan Jekielek: Congressman Brian Babin, such a pleasure to have you back on American Thought Leaders.

Rep. Brian Babin: Jan, it’s always good to be with you and especially here in Dallas at CPAC.

Mr. Jekielek: We talked last time in March and of course, you’re the head of the Border Security Caucus, and you were raising some pretty serious alarm bells. Here we are in mid-July. How has everything changed? Where are we at right now?

Rep. Babin: We’re pretty much in the same position, except more migrants, more bedlam, more chaos. We saw that the vice president finally made her way down to the border after being named as the border security czar or chief by President Biden. It took her that long, nearly a hundred days to get down there. When she went, instead of going to the real hotspot in the Rio Grande Valley sector, she went 500 miles away to the El Paso sector, and quite frankly, it was a photo op.

And then, when asked if there had been progress made down there, she said, “Yes, there’s been extreme progress made.” After further questioning, we find out that that progress in her book, and then I guess in all the Democrats’ minds, is that processing and facilitating the release of illegal immigrants into the United States. That’s what they consider to be progress.

This is what’s happening. Our border is wide open, and they have done away with all of the great provisions and policies of the Trump administration, who worked so extremely hard.

They had their challenging moments in 2019, and they more than met the challenge with the migrant protection protocols, asylum cooperative agreements, Title 42, building the wall, and a declaration of disaster for the nation. All of that’s being reversed or already has been reversed by the Biden administration in a disastrous manner.

Mr. Jekielek: You mentioned Title 42. This is something that’s actually in place now. From what I understand, it’s at the end of the month that it’s set to expire. Just tell me, what is Title 42, for the benefit of our audience?

Rep. Babin: Sure. Title 42 is a public health directive that enables the CDC director to turn back people who are trying to come in and seek asylum in the United States. By the way, probably 8 out of 10, maybe even 9 out of 10 of these asylum seekers don’t have credible fear, and they’re ultimately turned down by immigration courts. But nevertheless, they’re coming in and seeking asylum.

During the pandemic, during the Trump administration COVID pandemic, they were able to turn these people back because of a fear and danger of them infecting American citizens. Quite reasonable, common sense, especially during a lockdown when people are having to wear a mask and are not at work.

Many of the people that are coming in during this Biden administration, there is no question that many of them have been released COVID positive. [Title 42] is going to be done away with by the Biden administration at the end of this month.

Mr. Jekielek: Let’s say that provision ends, what happens?

Rep. Babin: There goes the last great tool that our border authorities have of turning back the caravans, the hordes of people. The cartels are simply defacto in charge of our border. They’re human trafficking, they’re bringing people in, they’re bringing drugs—fentanyl, for example, one of the deadliest drugs on the face of this planet.

I’m a healthcare practitioner, I can tell you, fentanyl is a substitute for heroin for many drug addicts, but so much more powerful, a hundred times more potent, just a small, small dose can kill you. Historically, we’ve had probably 70,000 Americans a year dying of overdoses. In just the last year or two, we’re up to 90,000 Americans a year dying of drug overdoses.

And now the Biden administration very, very foolishly—like they’ve done away with many other things: they stopped the construction of the border wall, they’ve stopped the migrant protection protocols, done away with the declaration of disaster, of national emergency rather—now they’re going to do away with this final Title 42, which is a great tool in the toolkit for controlling our border.

So you will have more people coming in, I think, which will result in more mayhem, bedlam, chaos, overloading our facilities, diversion tactics by the cartels to send more people in. They’re not going to be sent back because Title 42 is going by the wayside.

They’ll pull more border patrol agents off the line to take care of these people that are coming in, the family units, the UACs, the unaccompanied children, leaving gaps in the border.

We have gates that were unfinished. Our border patrol is even having to pay the salaries to station border patrol agents at these open gates, rather than facilitating their completion of their construction so that they can at least close the gate. They’re not able to do that.

More people will be coming in; fewer people will be sent back. That means you’re going to have more drugs, more human trafficking, more bedlam, more chaos, and fewer border patrol agents that are manning the border on the wall right there on the front lines. They’re going to be taking care of children, taking care of families, transporting illegals here and there. That’s how that works.

For Biden to eliminate Title 42 while he harps on variants of COVID is unconscionable

Joe Biden’s penchant for harping on COVID vaccinations only gets overshadowed by the penchant of the press to ignore the conflicts created by the Biden administration. Be it the Title 42/COVID conflict or the transparency/Hunter laptop conflict, the in-the-hip-pocket press will ignore it.

“Why” #2: Biden wants to import poor, uneducated, and compliant people tending toward socialism

Biden rejects Cubans who are rejecting socialism

The Washington Examiner reports on the way Governor DeSantis has slammed Biden for his double standard on Cuba.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took aim at President Joe Biden’s immigration policies over the weekend, accusing the administration of having a double standard when it comes to allowing Cuban migrants.

“They have a hundred-times stronger case for political persecution leaving a communist dictatorship than the other migrants who are coming across the border who are basically coming across the border because they want more economic opportunity,” DeSantis said during an appearance in Texas on Saturday.

“It’s a double standard, but honest, it’s something we expected because I do think a lot of their border policies are very political in nature in its intent,” he added.

The governor’s remarks come as his state has sent 50 law enforcement agents to Texas to assist with the border crisis, which DeSantis warned had implications for states across the country.

“Where the federal government is failing, Texas is having to step up, and Florida and other states are helping,” DeSantis told Fox News host Jesse Watters.

DeSantis argued that the Biden administration has given illegal migrants the option to go anywhere in the country once they cross the border, oftentimes assisting the migrants with bus tickets to their desired destination without approval from that state’s governor.

“Most of the people that are Florida folks have admitted their ultimate destination is the state of Florida,” he said. “So this has huge implications, not just for our country as a whole but states like my own, where a lot of these folks are going to end up coming illegally.”

“When they get turned over to the feds, what the feds are essentially doing is giving them a bus ticket and letting them go where they want to go,” the governor added.

The Republican warned that current immigration policies will have lasting implications for states around the country, which will be forced to adjust policies for public schools and social services to accommodate the migrants.

On Friday, Customs and Border Protection officials said there were nearly 190,000 migrant encounters at the border in June, bringing the total number of migrant encounters in fiscal year 2021 to over 1 million.

Sounds like Biden might be trying to convert a former swing state into a blue bastion

By possibly sprinkling enough socialist-leaning illegals across Florida’s Republican counties, Biden hopes to turn Florida into another socialist heaven like New York.

Catch-and-bus: thousands of freed border-crossing immigrants are dispersing across America

The Center for Immigration Studies documented the beginning of a trend that extended to a point where up to 80% of some flights out of McAllen, Texas were of illegal aliens and then extended to the flights mentioned in the article above on Laughlin AFB.

On a recent evening with the night ahead looking long, an idling charter bus parked on a lot prepared to disperse a new kind of import throughout the American landscape.

The bus and a small van nearby were packed with 60 or so mostly Haitian families fresh out of the Rio Grande from their illegal crossings.

After testing negative for Covid and other processing, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had given them legal documents and released them to a local nongovernmental organization, the Val Verde Border Humanitarian Coalition, just blocks from the river in this south Texas border town.

For another day or so, coalition volunteers helped them arrange to wire in money for bus tickets and lodging in the cities to which the buses will take them. Like at least 20 other buses that had each carried 50 people in just the first three weeks of March, this one soon rumbled onto the long road from this Texas border town carrying happy, chattering passengers to new American lives in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach in Florida, as well as Newark, N.J.

“They feel happy because they’re in the United States,” said Lorenzo Ortiz of the El Buen Samaritano Migrante church, who helps coordinate the daily bus rides from Del Rio to where the new immigrants say they want to go. “They want to get as soon as possible to their destination. They’re all going to apply for asylum. They’re all good people.”

These illegal aliens are not only being distributed by bus, but by commercial airlines (paid by America), and by the military

Protesters in Miami and Houston shut down thoroughfares in support of Cuban protests

Cuban American protesters shut down expressway in Miami, blame Biden for lack of support

Fox News reports in a 13 July 2021 article how anti-communist protesters shut down an expressway.

cuban-american-protesters-shut-down-expressway-in-miami-blame-biden-for-lack-of-supportHundreds of Cuban American protesters blocked a major expressway in Miami on Tuesday demanding President Biden do more to support the people of Cuba. 

“We need Biden’s support,” one man with a Cuban flag draped over his back told Fox News. “We haven’t gotten support from the president. So, we are trying to fight, to finish with the communism.”

Heavy rains did not stop many who police turned away when they reached the highway. The crowd chanted “SOS Cuba” as a line of cars forced to a standstill honked their horns.

Anti-government protests broke out in Cuba on Sunday as the communist island nation faces an economic crisis. At least 100 demonstrators, including activists and journalists, have been detained, Reuters reported.

“Biden, you should listen to the people here, the elected officials that are Cubans and know what is best for the people in Cuba,” a woman with a sweatshirt covering her head from the rain told Fox News in Miami. “So just hear us out and try to come together to see what we can do.” 

Biden praised Cuban protesters Monday. 

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,” Biden said in a statement.

Had I not turned to a conservative radio station, I would not have heard about the Miami protest

I would expect the people of Miami to protest in support of their friends and relatives in Cuba. However, that did not get mentioned in the national main-stream media that I breezed past. In fact, when searching online four days after all of this started (on Thursday, 15 July 2021), I only found one article  out of the Miami Herald referring to the Miami protest, but no references to other protests in support of Cuba.

Could it be that the media don’t want to show us how some have become dissatisfied with socialism just as Biden and his Chinese overlords try to march us into socialism? Could it be that AOC, Omar, Pressley, and Tliab have been stunned into silence with the knowledge that they truly can be called “useful idiots?”

Musician Pitbull posts impassioned appeal for swift assistance for Cubans

Fox News mentions the efforts of Musician Pitbull as he seeks to get assistance for the freedom-seeking Cubans.

Pitbull, the Grammy-winning musician, took to Twitter on Wednesday to urge his 25 million followers to support the historic protests that have broken out in Cuba, which has been under communist rule for decades.

“We need to get creative, we need to figure out solutions while they’re [anti-government protesters] losing their lives over there, literally, for something that we wake up every day and appreciate, which is freedom,” the singer, who is Cuban-American and whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, said. 

He continued, “This isn’t about politics, it’s about saving lives,” he said. “It is about unity, not division, and the bottom line is about taking action.”

Cuban authorities confirmed Tuesday that one person has died during demonstrations that have shaken the island in recent days by protesting over food shortages, high prices and other grievances against the government.

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Wednesday acknowledged shortcomings in his government’s handling of shortages and of neglecting certain sectors, but he urged Cubans to not act with hate — a reference to violence during recent street protests. This was seen as a stark departure from when he called on revolutionaries to take to the streets to counter the protests on Sunday.

Just when Biden had made such strides toward socialism by way of his executive order on limiting business mergers — now this happens

Biden’s COVID lockdowns had seemed to have assured his sweep into socialism. Churches had been shut down. Selective, liberal box stores had been allowed to remain open while conservative mom-and-pop stores were shutdown.

BidenTakesALeadInExOrdersAdditionally, if you believe CNN, Biden was long on his way to establishing himself as the first American dictator by proclaiming a record 52 executive orders within the first 100 days.

This stands to reason with Biden (considering that he probably has several socialist “underlings” doing the actual work of creating the executive orders, writing the responses to current events, and planning out the cheat sheets and teleprompter text that must be idiot proof). Therefore, it also seems logical that, while this Cuban protest may have slowed the move to socialism, it will not stop it. Not with the Communist Chinese pushing Biden to promote socialism in America and paying the Cuban leadership to keep it in Cuba. (Or do I have that 180 degrees out?)

Although the points made above may stand logically, the primary reason I included the article in the first place was to point out that one artist was supporting Cuban freedom (since so much of our culture seems to be built around the imitation of acts of artists). I hoped that — by bringing light to this one artist — news of his support for Cuban freedom would be communicated from the logical readers of blogs to the feelers who these readers know. From there, we might show real change for Cuba.

Communist China’s TikTok blacklists Cuban anti-communist video

Breitbart reports on how China’s TikTok has blacklists an anti-communist video on Cuba.

Social media users are calling out TikTok, saying the Chinese-owned social media platform has banned a video that shows Cuban citizens protesting against their communist government.

“Why would @tiktok_us remove videos & suspend accounts showing regime atrocities in #Cuba? BECAUSE ITS OWNED BY COMMUNIST #China!” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Wednesday.

Rubio was reacting to another Twitter user, who shared a video of what appears to be anti-communist protests, and Cubans standing up to the communist regime — a video that the social media user says “TikTok keeps removing.”

W.H.O. Subsidiary (aka CCP mouthpiece) Discourages Cuba Protests over Coronavirus

Breitbart reported in a 15 July 2021 article that a World Health Organization subsidiary discouraged Cuban protests (when the cover story was COVID).

The Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), the Americas subsidiary of the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), discouraged anti-communist protests in Cuba in a statement Wednesday, claiming they elevate the risk of spreading Chinese coronavirus.

PAHO’s statement appeared to contradict the W.H.O.’s active support of riots in the United States throughout summer 2020 in response to alleged racism in the country. At the time, W.H.O. Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus responded to mass assemblies of people, many of them violent, by asserting that his agency “fully supports equality and the global movement against racism.”

Unlike in summer 2020, however, many countries of the world now have access to experimental vaccines, many of which have shown a significant ability to limit the spread of Chinese coronavirus. The Cuban communist regime claims to have two vaccine candidates in advanced development and began pediatric clinical trials for one of them, the “Abdala” experiment, on Thursday.

PAHO is currently embroiled in legal litigation over its ties to the Castro regime. Cuban slave doctors forced to work in Brazil sued the agency in 2018 for signing onto an agreement between Cuba and the then-socialist government of Brazil to ship hundreds of doctors to the country. The doctors did not receive payments for their work, they alleged, and the Castro regime forced them to engage in espionage and communist agitation. PAHO signing onto the agreement prevented conservative lawmakers in Brazil from rejecting it and offered a shield to the Brazilian government should the United States take measures in response to Brazil enriching an enemy state.

Thousands of Cubans began taking the streets of the island nation’s biggest cities on Sunday, flooding as many as 60 municipalities across the country with peaceful marches demanding an end to the 62-year-old communist regime. Authorities responded to the protests with violent repression that included reports of opening fire on crowds of protesters, beating them publicly, and, later, door-to-door raids shooting people in their homes and dragging them out to unknown locations. Protests reportedly continued into Wednesday, but Cuban government officials cut off access to social media, making it difficult for citizens to share videos and other images of the protests and corresponding repression.

Black Lives Matter blames the U.S. and praises the Cuban regime

Fox news comments on how BLM blamed America and praised the Cuban regime.

Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba’s government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns.

The statement – originally posted on Instagram and later tweeted and retweeted – blamed the U.S. embargo for the country’s instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting “Black revolutionaries” asylum.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke an initial tweet that linked to the statement.

“The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba,” Rubio tweeted.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc.’s tweet echoed Díaz-Canel’s early statements that blamed the U.S. embargo for the country’s economic devastation. Cuba is going through its worst economic crisis in decades and is also facing a resurgence of coronavirus cases.

Three proofs that Conservatives are right


  1. NPR even says, “Texas arrests man for alleged illegal voting in push against fraud”

Your and my tax dollars went into this report by left-leaning National Public Radio where even they had to admit that voter fraud had occurred in the 2020 election in Texas.

HervisRogersWhen Hervis Rogers went viral on social media for being the last person in line at Texas Southern University to cast a vote at 1 a.m. on Super Tuesday in March 2020, he was applauded as a tenacious, civic-minded man who worked hard to exercise his right to vote.

Now, Rogers is being prosecuted by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office for allegedly voting illegally.

The arrest came just one day before the Texas Legislature convened on Thursday to begin a special session, where a controversial voting bill is on the agenda. Republicans in favor of new voting restrictions point to cases like Rogers’ as proof of an insecure system. However, there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

They probably reported on this one case to avoid reporting on the thousands of cases mentioned by Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt

Admittedly, waving a red herring works a lot better for the folks at the Houston Chronicle than actual reporting. That way, they don’t need to explain the 4,880 people claiming UPS Store post office boxes as residences while they rail against the Republican’s voter integrity bill. Likewise, it is easier than reporting on the numbers that have been caught through absentee ballot fraud.

Nonetheless, it is nice to find a case where even NPR cannot deny the fraud.

  1. Biden goes to Pennsylvania to stop a forensic audit

The Western Journal outlines Trump’s lambasting of Biden for Dementia Joe’s attempt to stop the audit in Pennsylvania.

Former President Donald Trump released a statement on Tuesday morning calling out President Joe Biden’s flight to Pennsylvania to stop a potential audit of the 2020 presidential election.

“Joe Biden is going to Pennsylvania today in a rush in order to stop the Forensic Audit that the Pennsylvania Republican Senate is in the process of doing. Philadelphia was a cesspool of corruption, which will soon be revealed by the audit,” Trump said in the statement.

“Why are they so concerned that a President, who never goes anywhere, would hop onto beautiful Air Force One and head to Philadelphia if it were an honest election? Why not let the audit go forward and make everybody, on both sides, happy? The results will be the results,” he added.

The former president continued to question the election results in Philadelphia in the statement.

“But they know it was not an honest election, Philadelphia was one of the most corrupt cities in the Country — and so it Detroit, and so is Milwaukee, and so is Atlanta, and Pittsburgh, and Oakland, and Baltimore,” he said. “Corruption has gone on for years, but in the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, with the mail-in ballots and the use of Covid to cheat, corruption reached new levels.”

Trump concluded by saying, “Let the Forensic Audit go, Joe. Don’t fight it. Show them how honest it was.”

I agree with President Trump. Let the state of Pennsylvania find out what happened.

Let them find out what happened and tell us all the news, good or bad.

Still, Joe, if you want to put your nose into things that might change presidential politics, how about you convince your compatriots in the DNC to drop their push to nationalize elections? Why not stick with what has been in the Constitution from our framing of it?

Biden-Harris regime takes lying about migrants at the border to a new level

The Washington Times commented in a 28 June 2021 article how the Biden-Harris regime has taken lying about the border to a new level.

All politicians tell lies, but the Biden-Harris administration is taking lies to a new level. They now want us to disbelieve what we can see.

To paraphrase a quote attributed to the 19th-century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, there are lies, damn lies … and then there is Vice President Kamala Harris.

More than 90 days after being tasked to stem the record flow of migrants into the U.S., Harris finally went to the southern border, falsely claiming, “We’ve made progress.” She visited El Paso, Texas, while the real problem is in the Rio Grande Valley. Clearly, neither she nor her handlers wanted pictures of people wading, walking and jumping fences to get into the U.S. with her there.

Instead, Ms. Harris found a safe place where she talked with border control officers, who have been overwhelmed by migrants in places where she was not. Predictably, she blamed the Trump administration for causing the problem when, in fact, former President Trump claimed to be on the way to a solution. Mr. Trump and a few House Republicans are scheduled to visit the border on Wednesday, leading some to wonder if Ms. Harris was trying to upstage him.

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott said the real problems along the border are less in El Paso than in areas not protected by the unfinished border wall. Mr. Abbott said Ms. Harris would “fail in her mission if she refuses to speak to residents of the Del Rio sector whose homes and ranches are being overrun by gangs and smugglers.”

Mr. Abbott has pledged a $250 million “down payment” to resume construction of the wall. Governors in Florida, Arizona and Nebraska have dispatched law enforcement officers to Texas to support local officers and the border patrol.

What frustrates and contributes to the anger many Americans feel toward their government is that solutions exist, but many politicians refuse to apply them. Recent TV interviews with migrants have shown they were motivated to come because they believed President Biden is making it easier for them to be admitted.

Ms. Harris’ recent speech in which she said, “do not come, do not come” had about as much credibility as Bill Clinton’s denial of sex with Monica Lewinsky.

There are critics who say this is part of a plan by Democrats to “import” new voters and make the party a permanent majority. That may be part of it, but I suspect another reason is to undermine the values and traditions that built and have sustained this country from the beginning. There are those secular progressives who speak and behave as if they hate America and would be happy to see it brought down to the level of other countries or destroyed outright. What better way to do this than to dilute those values and traditions by importing foreigners?

But that was before Joe compared the Texas law to the civil war

Whether it sprang out of his dementia or came from one of the socialist thugs directing him, we do not know. However, as documented by the Wall Street Journal, Joe has taken the side of Democrats who have run from their sworn duties and are blocking the democratic process in Texas.

Furthermore, Joe and these Democrats have put their full backing behind an anti-Constitutional idea of federalizing elections. As additionally noted by the Wall Street Journal:

BidenConfederacyThe Democratic narrative on voting is becoming unglued. “The 21st-century Jim Crow assault is real,” President Biden claimed Tuesday. “We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War—that’s not hyperbole,” he said in the same speech. “The Confederates back then never breached the Capitol, as insurrectionists did on January the 6th.”

As Mr. Biden apparently sees it, the latest Civil War is in Texas, where state lawmakers want to make voting “so hard and inconvenient that they hope people don’t vote at all.” On Monday more than 50 Democrats from the Texas House absconded to Washington, D.C., to deny their chamber a quorum. “I left because I am tired of sitting as a hostage,” one lawmaker told the awaiting press at Dulles airport, “while Republicans strip away the rights of my constituents to vote.”

This partisan rhetoric is detached from the facts. We’ve already gone through the misrepresentations of Georgia’s and Florida’s voting laws. What’s proposed in Texas? First, the bills would end two practices that Harris County pioneered last year amid the pandemic: drive-through voting and 24-hour voting. These options were used disproportionately by nonwhites. Perhaps they made sense when every Texan was urged to stay six feet from every other Texan.

But if the Legislature doesn’t want them to be permanent, then reverting to the pre-Covid status quo of 2019 is not some epochal loss for voting rights. Gov. Greg Abbott argues that drive-through voting breaks the traditional privacy of the polling booth. “Are you going to have people in the car with you?” he asked. “It could be somebody from your employer or somebody else who may have some coercive effect on the way that you would cast your ballot.”

Mr. Biden should try comparing Delaware voting law to the proposed Texas law. Both current and the proposed Texas law has early voting. Delaware law does not. In fact, the proposed Texas law lengthens the early voting period and adds more time on Sunday for voting.

Additionally, liberal states like Colorado hold mail-in voter identification requirements that match the proposed Texas law (where the voter would need to provide a photocopy of his or her state-issued identification card or write in their card number).

I guess we can expect tag-team lying from the Biden regime members as they try to keep us confused as to what we are trying to defend. What is next? Will they insist that Republicans came up with CRT? Will they blame Christians for same-sex marriage? Neither of these are more ludicrous than their lies about Republicans defunding the police or preventing minorities from voting.

Texas sheriffs sue Biden over ICE restrictions and plummeting deportations

The Daily Wire reported in a 5 July 2021 article that Texas sheriffs have sued the Biden regime over its lack of enforcement of border law.

A group of Texas sheriffs sued the Biden administration last week for restricting the authority of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to take and deport illegal immigrants.

Sheriffs from the border counties of Kinney, Edwards, McMullen, and Hudspeth in Texas along with an association of ICE officers accused the Biden administration of violating federal immigration law with its restrictions on ICE operations.

“As part of President Joe Biden’s pledge to take a more humane approach to immigration enforcement compared to the harsh policies of former President Donald Trump, the Biden administration issued a memo Feb. 18 directing ICE to focus on deporting immigrants who are national security or terrorist threats, gang members, those who have been convicted of certain aggravated felonies and any that entered the country after Nov. 1,” Courthouse News reports. “ICE officers who want to take into custody jailed immigrants falling outside those categories must first obtain approval from their bosses.”

The lawsuit states that the Biden administration’s action has blocked ICE agents from taking into custody illegal immigrants accused of crimes such as human trafficking and drug smuggling.

“Since the issuance of the February 18 Memorandum, ICE officers have been unable to take custody of, or issue detainer requests for, dangerous criminal aliens whose detention is mandated by the [Immigration and Nationality Act]. Specifically, detention is required for aliens who have committed or been convicted of numerous crimes other than aggravated felonies, such as: crimes of moral turpitude, crimes involving controlled substances, human trafficking, money laundering, and certain firearm offenses,” the lawsuit states.

Some harm by Biden cannot be undone

The Western Journal points out how Dementia Joe has reeked irreparable harm on Texas counties.

Immigration has been a top priority for Democrats, which is why President Joe Biden has taken such drastic action on the matter since entering office.

In the first weeks of his presidency, Biden has already issued at least eight proclamations and executive orders regarding his desired changes to immigration policies in the United States.

Yet by reversing many of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and relaxing the rules at the border, some argue that Biden is doing serious damage to the country.

“The memo that I received this last week — it’s essentially a defund [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] by memo, by memorandum, that was sent out by David Pekoske on Jan. 20, 2021,” Sheriff A.J. Louderback of Jackson County, Texas, told Tucker Carlson on Fox News’ Monday night segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Louderback said the memo was “particularly devastating” — not just for the state of Texas, but for America as a whole. He added that it sends a powerful and unfortunate message to people looking to illegally enter the country.

“It’s a message to the world: You can come here illegally, you can commit crimes here against Americans and remain here illegally,” he said.

Louderback is absolutely correct. According to a Monday Fox News report, Biden will prohibit ICE from deporting illegal immigrants when they commit certain crimes.

“ICE would cease to pursue deportations of convicted drug criminals, DUI drivers, low-level assaulters, fraudsters and thieves, according to a memo from acting director Tae Johnson obtained earlier by the Washington Post,” the outlet said.

However, now that I think of it, what is a little more addiction to fentanyl, a few more million hoards over our borders that we cannot support — all when you think of the “war on poverty” that broke up so many families (especially the Black family)? What are these impositions in comparison to the millions killed in abortuaries?

What’s more: the real impositions have been borne out by communities that the Left purports to help. Considering that most abortuaries (translate that “Planned Parenthood” offices) find themselves situated in minority communities —  that couldn’t be racist or by design, could it?

Virginia gives illegal immigrants in-state tuition at public colleges and aid for private universities

Judicial Watch reports that Virginia has committed to giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition at public colleges and aid for private universities.

Starting this fall Virginia will offer illegal immigrants discounted in-state tuition at taxpayer-funded colleges as well as financial aid to attend private universities. This month the state’s governor, Ralph Northam, signed the new law during a heavily publicized visit to Marymount University, a private Arlington college with an enrollment of about 3,200. “These students have grown up in our communities across Virginia,” the Democrat lawmaker said during the signing. “They’ve attended the same schools as their classmates and neighbors, they have taken the same tests, they have played on the same teams, eaten in the same lunch rooms and even gone to the same dances. They are valued members of our communities, and they are Virginians in every sense of the word except for immigration status – something that was chosen for them, not by them, by families just wanting a better life for their children.”

Virginia has 15 public four-year universities, according to its State Council of Higher Education, and dozens of private institutions that will help educate illegal immigrants on taxpayer dime. While more than a dozen other states offer illegal aliens discounted tuition at public universities, Virginia is taking it a step further by also doling out money for a private education. The money will flow through a special program called Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG) that annually provides tens of thousands of legal state residents with grants to attend private institutions of higher learning. To be eligible, candidates must be a domiciliary resident of Virginia as defined by the state code, which essentially says individuals shall establish by “clear and convincing evidence” domicile in the Commonwealth for a period of at least one year immediately succeeding the establishment of domiciliary intent. It is not clear what if any changes will be made to the code so illegal immigrants meet the criteria.

More than 12,370 undocumented students are enrolled in higher education in Virginia and the state sees 2,000 illegal immigrants graduate high school annually, according to the Higher Ed Immigration Portal, a platform that tracks and supports undocumented and international students in the U.S. Additionally, Virginia has an illegal immigrant population of 265,830, the group’s figures show. The nonprofit claims that its mission is to build a diverse movement of partners and stakeholders advocating alongside immigrant and international students. Its goal is to expand access to higher education, degree completion, and post-graduate career success. “The U.S. is home to more than 427,000 undocumented students enrolled in higher education,” the portal states. “In their pursuit of higher education, undocumented students actively ready themselves to fill critical skill shortages and become better positioned to support their families, communities, and the U.S. economy.”

At least 19 states offer illegal immigrants discounted tuition typically reserved for legal residents, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Seventeen of them— Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington—passed laws to offer the perk. In two states—Oklahoma and Rhode Island—the Board of Regents allows it. In 2013, the University of Hawaii’s Board of Regents and the University of Michigan’s Board of Regents adopted similar policies granting illegal aliens in-state tuition at their school. A year later Virginia’s attorney general enacted a policy giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants protected by a controversial Obama amnesty program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). At the time more than 8,000 illegal immigrants qualified for the taxpayer benefit. The attorney general proclaimed that it was the right thing to do because the illegal immigrants are “Virginians” and the state “should extend them an opportunity for an affordable education.” Three states—Arizona, Georgia, and Indiana—have passed laws prohibiting illegal immigrants from receiving discounted in-state-tuition rates.

Last year Virginia passed a law granting illegal immigrants special driver’s licenses.

Actually, this is fine with me. As long as the liberal states want to attract the illegals, they can.

If California, Virginia, and states like them want to enact laws that will attract illegal aliens, then they can. However, they should not expect me to bail them out when they fail economically. That is all I ask.

Judicial Watch sues the Biden administration for information on illegal aliens dispersed across America and COVID-19

As reported by Judicial Watch, a suit has been filed against the Biden administration seeking to find data on the illegal aliens spread across America (especially in regard to whether those aliens are COVID-19 infected).

The lawsuit was filed after HHS failed to respond to an April 15, 2021, FOIA request seeking access to:

All technical guidance provided to the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement related to the transmission, testing, mitigation, and/or treatment of COVID-19 for undocumented immigrants who are in or are released from Department of Homeland Security and/or Customs and Border Patrol custody.

The FOIA request was prompted by the April 15 congressional testimony of Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. In her testimony, Dr. Walensky said: “The CDC is providing technical assistance to the Office of Refugee Resettlement for the people who are leaving the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] and Customs and Border Protection.”

This will be an interesting item to watch.

Although I fully expect the Biden regime to drag their heels and do everything to thwart their having to comply with this item of law, I will watch for developments on this with expectation.

Nearly half of an McAllen flight was taken by illegal aliens (paid by U.S. taxpayer dollars)

With a hat tip to OANN personality Jenn Pellegrino, we find that (on 27 March 2021), 40% of the flight was held by illegal aliens with envelopes saying “I do not speak English.”



Another conservative reporter who was following Kamala Harris to El Paso reported half of another flight was of illegals

While listening to a morning drive-time radio host out of Dallas, the radio reporter who went from Dallas to El Paso (to cover the Kamala Harris visit to El Paso) said that half of the flight out of El Paso had been filled with illegals.

Harris border visit was visibly only about the optics

One America News Network comments on how the recent visit by Kamala Harris to El Paso was done only for the optics.

Former acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan has blasted Kamala Harris’s border visit as all show and no substance. In interviews on Friday, Morgan said Harris’s visit was driven by optics and argued she failed to visit an area of the border where the crisis has been at its worst.

Instead of El Paso, Morgan said she should have gone to the epicenter of the crisis in the Rio Grande Valley if she truly wanted a meaningful understanding of what has been going on. Morgan added the move was to turn anger over the border off of Joe Biden and onto Harris.

“I think this was done by intention, by the President to really distance himself,” he explained. “If you look, as soon as Vice President Harris was named czar, her staff tried to distance herself from the southwest border crisis to say she was just there to develop root causes.”

After being appointed as the nation’s border czar, Harris repeatedly ignored calls from lawmakers to make a trip to witness the crisis first-hand. For this reason, she has also been accused of only making her appearance in El Paso due to President Trump’s recently announced plans to visit the southern border with Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas).

Democrats double down on failure (part deux)

Houston Democrats follow their overlords

Lina Hidalgo defunds County constables

An outcry is growing against what some deem a funding cut for Harris County Constables

Houston Fox affiliate KRIV reported in a 3 July 2021 article that the Democrat majority of the Harris County Commissioners Court chose to strip savings from the County Constables.

ConstableFundingDecisionWidely perceived in Greater Houston as the “essential grassroots” of neighborhood safety, Harris County Constables this week sustained a substantial financial setback at the direction of Judge Lina Hidalgo and the Democratic Majority on Commissioners Court.

“We cannot afford to have these savings accounts. We can’t. We have to spend the money tackling the rise in violent crime,” said Hidalgo.

At the tail-end of a marathon meeting of the court which pushed past 2 am, Hidalgo and allies stripped Constables of an estimated $20 million dollars in so-called “rollover funds” – essentially each Precinct yearly “savings account.”

Constables claimed their “Rainy Day” surplus is critical to plugging unanticipated holes in staffing and other public safety expense.

“The reality to me is I had $52 million last year at this time and at this time this year, I have $44 million dollars,” said Ted Heap, Harris County Constable Precinct 5.

“I hope we can resolve this issue because I don’t want to lay any people off,” added Sherman Eagleton, Harris Count Constable Precinct 3.

While Hidalgo and allies pledged that the millions clawed back from Constables will be re-directed to different avenues of crime-fighting, others in the community and state government viewed the budget maneuver as “defunding” local police.

“Oh it’s clearly defunding the Police and not only that, when you see that the Legislature outlawed that and they are sneaking it in before the time it takes place, how outrageous can you get?” said Larry Lipton, a longtime neighborhood activist.

Lina follows the national Democrat socialists, never mind the crime wave

Lina Hidalgo throws the well being of the citizens out of the window when it comes to supporting the party line. Lina Hidalgo will support the defunding of the police (as the national Democrat socialists like AOC, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden want). Never mind that:

You would not know Lina had ever failed had you only read local main stream media

You would know that Lina had never succeeded had you lived under her thumb

It is almost comical how the record presented by the press stands opposite to reality. As a prime example, should any reading person look up Lina Hidalgo, they would think that this inexperienced woman might be the Democrat sainted equivalent of Einstein.

However, for those who live under her sway know that she has done nothing but fail.

Even some local main stream media outlets have hinted at her incompetence. For example, the best the liberal pundits at the Houston Comical Chronicle could muster in a 2020 article about her pandemic performance was (emphasis mine):

In her short tenure, the county has endured a tropical storm, massive chemical fire, several plant explosions, gasoline spill in the Houston Ship Channel and several localized floods. The emergency operations center has been activated for 11 disasters.

Hidalgo navigated those incidents without major missteps and worked with commissioners to make investments so the county was better prepared for future emergencies.

Somehow, I think that you might get another opinion from the people who suffered due to the County’s decision to:

In the Biden regime, going further left has proven problematic

Biden shifts party further left with new order on business concentration

The Washington Examiner discusses how Biden has shifted the party even further to socialism with his new executive order on business mergers.

President Joe Biden’s new competition executive order moves the Democratic Party further to the left and expands the role of the government in an attempt to help consumers save money and time in dealings with corporations.

The executive order, “Promoting Competition in the American Economy,” includes 72 initiatives by more than a dozen federal agencies to tackle unfair corporate behavior in the economy, which supporters and critics both say will require the government to exert more power.

“This order represents a big ideological shift in the Democratic Party, which many of us wouldn’t have expected just six months ago,” said Sarah Miller, the executive director of the American Economic Liberties Project, a liberal think tank focused on antitrust issues.

“It puts incredibly strong policy and rhetoric behind making markets more fair and puts that at the center of their economic agenda. It’s a significant realignment in how Democrats look at the role of governance within the economy,” she added.

Miller said the transformation within the Democratic Party to tackle structural problems in the economy using antitrust has been caused by the monopolistic behavior of dominant corporations, such as the Big Tech companies of Silicon Valley, along with the antitrust enforcement failures of the federal government under both parties.

The central-control model was tried in the Soviet Union and did not work

The central-control model has not worked in Venezuela, the Soviet Union, Korea, or Pol Pot’s Cambodia.

Apologists for socialism should forget about pointing toward Sweden should consider the words of economists who verify that (while Sweden has a generous social medicine program), it also displays some signs of being more capitalistic than other “capitalist” countries.

Therefore, unless Joe keels over from some unknown ailment, we should expect that this lurch toward socialist central control of companies will only result in more pain for Americans. Considering that Joe once announced that America was a democracy, but has ruled by executive order more than any other occupier of the Oval Office — this seems quite a stark step away from democracy.

Cover-Up: Biden’s Ecoterrorist-Linked Nominee Locked Access to Her Master’s Thesis Advocating Anti-Child Population Control Propaganda

Breitbart reports on the murderous plans in the Master’s thesis of Biden’s Bureau of Land Management nominee.

President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requested last year that the University of Montana restrict access to her controversial master’s thesis, which advocated for the creation of population control propaganda for environmental reasons.

The university’s digital initiatives librarian confirmed to Breitbart News on Friday that the embattled nominee, Tracy Stone-Manning, asked the school in June 2020 to limit access to the thesis, titled Into the heart of the beast | A case for environmental advertising, which Stone-Manning authored in 1992 for her master’s degree in Environmental Studies.

tracy-stone-manning-propagandaThe restricted thesis itself made headlines on June 23, 2021, after the Daily Caller obtained a copy of it, which showed Stone-Manning advocating for U.S. population control propaganda through a series of advertisements intended to “tug at the root of many of our environmental horrors, overpopulation.”

The thesis on “environmental advertising” highlighted population control propaganda Stone-Manning created as a means to alleviate perceived stresses to the environment caused by humans. Stone-Manning wrote that her movement “desperately needs to use advertising’s ubiquitous power if it is to capture mainstream America.”

One advertisement stated, “When we have children, the planet feels it more. Do the truly smart thing. Stop at one or two kids,” while another read, “Stop at two. It could be the best thing you do for the planet.” The latter advertisement, which identified “overpopulation” as a “problem” in America, featured a photo of a child with the caption, “Can you find the environmental hazard in this photo?”

Here’s an idea: how about liberals live out their fantasies regarding overpopulation

Let those with a Master of Arts in Women’s’ Studies tie their tubes at 24. Let those who believe in following the commands of God in Genesis 1:28 should follow that route.

God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28 NASB)

Even China has recognized that the “One Child” policy ends at a dead end. Too bad the liberal elites in America did not get the memo.

Over 100 days of failure at the border

The Washington Examiner reflects on the first 100 days of failure at the border.

Last week marked 100 days since President Joe Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris as his border crisis manager.

In the three-plus months since Biden called her the “most qualified person” for the job, Harris hasn’t offered solutions — only inaction, excuses, and lies when it comes to the Biden-Harris administration’s signature crisis. When she’s not laughing it off, Harris claims she’s making progress on the raging humanitarian disaster at the border. Her boss says he has the situation “under control.”

But facts are stubborn things, and the numbers show just how dire the crisis Harris and Biden created really is.

In May alone, 180,000 illegal immigrants tried crossing the border. That’s not normal as Harris and Biden would have us believe; those numbers are a 21-year high. They’re nearly an eight-fold increase from just a year ago. More unaccompanied migrant children are showing up at the southern border than ever, often after being smuggled by coyotes taking advantage of this administration’s open-borders agenda.

Public safety officials in Texas have seized enough fentanyl this year to kill 21.5 million people. More fentanyl has been seized at the border in 2021 than in all of 2020. The FBI director is calling it an epidemic.

It isn’t only the record number of deadly drugs and illegal immigrants flooding the border that makes this crisis so devastating.

Members of the brutal gang MS-13 and those on the FBI’s terror watch list have been caught trying to cross the border illegally. Criminal cartels are capitalizing on the mayhem and making record profits.

Facing mounting criticism for a crisis spiraling out of control, Harris finally did the bare minimum last week and visited a border state. But even her trip to El Paso, Texas, showed she’s still not taking the situation seriously.

The fact that most of these illegal aliens have COVID, while Biden kept America on lockdown should be enough for America to abandon Biden

However, we should also consider that Biden has kept children in cages, kept a policy that resulted in the rape of unnumbered illegal alien girls, opened our borders to a flood of opioids (especially fentanyl), and has taken other actions to enrich the Mexican cartels and China.

Breitbart reported in a 4 July 2021 article that an illegal alien from Egypt has been accused of chasing down a rabbi and stabbing him.

An illegal alien from Egypt allegedly chased down a Rabbi outside of a Jewish school and stabbed him Thursday in Boston, Massachusetts.

Khaled Awad, a 24-year-old illegal alien from Egypt, was charged in district court for allegedly stabbing eight times Rabbi Shlomo Noginski, a father of 12 children, outside the Shaloh House in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston.

According to investigators, Awad ran up to Noginski and pointed a gun at him on July 1 in an attempt to obtain the keys of a school van. At that point, Noginski walked toward the van as Awad allegedly held the gun to him, instructing him to get in the van.

Noginski ran on foot, but Awad allegedly caught up to him, stabbing him eight times in one of his arms, investigators said. Awad was previously charged in Florida for battery and theft and was held in a mental hospital.

According to Awad’s former college roommate, the illegal alien is “very much anti-Semitic” and described him as “violent.”

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency revealed to Fox News that Awad first entered the United States on an F-1 student visa in August 2019. Awad, an ICE spokesperson confirmed, did not stay enrolled in college courses and thus lost his legal visa status in May 2021.

Breitbart reported in a 2 July 2021 article that Erick Benitez-Amaya was freed twice although he had been accused of attempted rape of a 15-year-old.

An illegal alien MS-13 Gang member accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old girl in May was twice freed into the community by the sanctuary jurisdiction of Montgomery County, Maryland, Breitbart News has learned.

Erick Benitez-Amaya, a 24-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, was arrested in May after he allegedly tried to rape a 15-year-old girl and would have been successful if not for FaceTime, according to a report by ABC 7 News’ Kevin Lewis.

On May 8, Benitez-Amaya, a known MS-13 Gang member, allegedly lured the teenage girl into a second-story apartment after meeting her at a community swimming pool. While in the apartment, police say Benitez-Amaya tried to take the girl’s clothes off of her and eventually took his pants off.

Before allegedly pinning the girl to the bed, police say Benitez-Amaya touched himself. While Benitez-Amaya grabbed a condom to rape the girl, police say the girl got in touch with a friend on FaceTime where she could be heard screaming, “Let me go!”

Afterward, the girl was able to escape from the apartment.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency confirmed to Breitbart News that Benitez-Amaya is an illegal alien who had been previously released into the community by Montgomery County sanctuary officials despite ICE placing two detainers on him for previous crimes.

An ICE detainer requests that local authorities keep an illegal alien in their custody until federal immigration agents can take over custody of the suspect.

“Currently, ICE does not have a detainer on this individual,” an ICE spokesperson told Breitbart News. “However, ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Baltimore Field Office had previously issued detainers on two separate occasions to the Montgomery County Detention Center for this individual. Neither of those detainers were honored.”

  1. Alejandro Jacobo-Marcos accused of 50 counts of child abuse

The Chatham News & Record reported in a 25 June 2021 article that Alejandro Jacobo-Marcos has been accused of 50 counts of child abuse.

Chatham law enforcement agencies are investigating a pair of violent crimes — serial rape and murder — making an arrest in the former and working with the State Bureau of Investigation in the latter.

Pittsboro police officers arrested Alejandro Jacobo-Marcos last Thursday in connection with a string of unsolved sexual assaults from more than 20 years ago, according to Chief Shorty Johnson.

An investigation into Jacobo-Marcos’ suspected crimes began in March when two victims contacted the department and accused him of abusing them in 1999.

“Jacobo-Marcos was known to the victims,” Johnson said, “and lived in Pittsboro at the time of the assault.”

Since then, Jacobo-Marcos moved to California. Detective Delaine Womach of the Pittsboro Police Department contacted authorities in Riverside County, California, who cooperated in the inter-departmental search and eventually located Jacobo-Marcos.

“After Detective Womack secured warrants in the case,” Johnson said, “the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office detained and held Jacobo-Marcos until he was extradited back to North Carolina.”

Jacobo-Marcos has been charged with 31 counts of indecent liberties with a minor, 16 counts of first-degree sex offense, six counts of sexual battery and one count of first degree kidnapping. He is being held under a $1 million dollar bond and is scheduled to appear in court on August 6.

  1. Illegal alien used fake Facebook profile to lure, rape girl

Fresno, California Fox affiliate KMPH reported in a 26 June 2021 article that an illegal alien used a fake Facebook profile to lure and rape a girl.

A 22-year-old man is now facing charges for the rape and kidnapping of a girl in April.

Madera Sheriff’s deputies say the girl– younger than the age of 14– was lured by a Facebook friend, who claimed to have the inside on a job selling fruit at a corner fruit stand.

Instead, a man in a van picked her up on April 2nd and took her to the Lavina area, where he told her he had a gun and forced her to undress.

Deputies say the man then assaulted the girl at three different locations.

According to the Madera County Sheriff’s Office, that friend– and profile– was fake.

Detectives circulated a picture of the van, and 22-year-old Carlos Alfonso Bolanos of Madera was identified as a person of interest.

  1. Joel Arciniega-Saenz charged for Father’s Day decapitation in New Mexico park

The New York Post reported in a 23 June 2021 article that illegal alien Joel Arciniega-Saenz has been charged with the decapitation murder of a man at a park.

A New Mexico man is charged with killing and decapitating a 51-year-old man at a local park Sunday — then kicking the severed head around, according to a report.

Joel Arciniega-Saenz, 25, was charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of James Garcia at a Las Cruces park, where cops found him near the murder scene with a bloody knife and dried blood on his clothes, Fox News reported.

Authorities said he later confessed to the grisly slaying, allegedly admitting he dragged the victim’s body into the street and kicked his severed head around, the network reported.

Arciniega-Saenz claimed Garcia had robbed him days earlier and had raped his wife several years ago — but cops found no proof.

He had been arrested on an unrelated vandalism charge as recently as last month but was released on $2,000 bail over prosecutors’ objections.

  1. House painter arrested on suspicion of trying to rape client at knifepoint

The East Bay Times reported in a 24 June 2021 article that illegal alien Jorge Perez Diaz has been charged with the knifepoint rape of a woman who hired him to paint.

A man who worked as a contract painter at a Sunnyvale woman’s home went back there in the middle of the night and tried to rape her a knifepoint, and was arrested two days after the victim and her teen daughter fought him off and sent him fleeing, authorities said.

Jorge Perez Diaz, 32, of Mountain View, was arrested Monday in connection with the attack, and then booked into the Elmwood men’s jail on suspicion of assault with the intent to commit rape, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, making criminal threats and burglary. He was being held on $250,000 bail as of Tuesday.

The woman suffered serious injuries after she grabbed her attacker’s knife by the blade to protect herself from getting stabbed, said Capt. Craig Anderson of the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety. Still, she saw enough during the early Saturday attack to recognize him as possibly being one of several contractors who had recently performed renovation work on her Yarmouth Terrace home.

  1. Sheriff says sexual assault suspect in country illegally, had prior arrests

Breitbart reported in a 20 June 2021 article that Marvin Ailon-Mendoza has been charged with rape of a 81-year-old woman.

An illegal alien is in custody on a $1 million bail after allegedly raping an elderly woman at a senior living facility in Stuart, Florida.

Marvin Ailon-Mendoza, a 20-year-old illegal alien who entered the United States as an Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) via the U.S.-Mexico border, was arrested and charged with raping an 82-year-old woman last month.

According to law enforcement, Ailon-Mendoza broke into the senior living facility and raped the elderly woman. A federal source who spoke to a local media outlet confirmed that Ailon-Mendoza was an illegal alien in the U.S. and first entered as a UAC.

“I think what has been going on is a big tragedy. It’s been avoidable,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said last week during a news conference. “There was not a crisis on January 20 on that border. Not to say everything was resolved, but the policies were working and those were all thrown out for political or ideological reasons and the result has been what we have been dealing with now.”

Ailon-Mendoza has been previously arrested in Martin County, Florida.

What if I had mined stories of illegal alien crime against Americans that started with Joe Biden’s border opening? How many articles would be here?

If I had not limited this blog post to commenting on three weeks worth of crimes by illegal aliens (that I could easily find), what would this page look like?

Mind you, there were articles that came to mind, but could not be found. Admittedly, a number of these cases involve individuals that have been in America for some time and involve crimes committed over a long stretch of time. One of these articles even covers the crime of a supposed refugee admitted during the Obama years.

Still, you have to add to that the consideration that crime has risen at the border as Joe’s immigration crisis continues.

And with the liberal suppression of conservative thought in mind (where Breitbart has been hobbled by Google on Internet traffic), it is a wonder that anything can be found on the Breitbart news site.

Nonetheless, that still begs the question — how long would the list of articles be if I had mined the entire Biden hole on how the border disaster has resulted in death and mayhem for Americans?

Before the above seventeen events occurred, these three articles piqued my interest in illegal alien crime this year:

Ali Alaheri goes on an anti-Christian and anti-Jewish crime spree

The Gatestone Institute reported the following attack on churches and synagogues in a May 2021 post.

Ali Alaheri, a 29-year-old Muslim man, went on an anti-Christian and anti-Jewish crime spree in Brooklyn, NY, until he was finally arrested and charged with hate crimes. During his rampage he knocked down and destroyed a large crucifix that had stood for eleven years outside of St. Athanasius Church in Bensonhurst, and burned the American flag on the premises. The damage was discovered on May 14. “It was a terrible morning,” said Monsignor David Cassato. “It was probably the saddest day in my life, to see this desecration of a cross of Jesus and the desecration of the flag.” Alaheri also deliberately set fire to a yeshiva and synagogue on 36th Street in Brooklyn. Surveillance video shows him piling and lighting garbage bags alongside the building. Firefighters responded in time to extinguish the flames. He also “allegedly attacked a man wearing traditional Hasidic garb.”

This continues the trend of Obama in favoring Islam over Christians and Jews

This barely-reported crime against churches and synagogues continues a trend started by Barack Obama in favoring Islam over Christianity and Judaism.

In 2019, over 90% of illegal aliens arrested in U.S. had criminal convictions or pending charges

As reported by Judicial Watch in a 9 January 2020 commentary, over 90% of illegal aliens arrested in America had either criminal convictions or pending charges.

More than 90% of illegal immigrants arrested by federal agents in the United States last year had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges, including 56,000 assaults and thousands of sex crimes, robberies, homicides and kidnappings. Many had “extensive criminal histories with multiple convictions,” according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) year-end report. The 123,128 illegal aliens arrested by the agency’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in 2019 had 489,063 criminal convictions and pending charges, representing an average of four crimes per alien, highlighting the “recidivist nature” of the arrested aliens, the agency writes, noting that sanctuary cities nationwide greatly impeded its public safety efforts.

The Dallas ICE field office, which covers north Texas and Oklahoma, led the way with 16,900 arrests in fiscal year 2019. The overwhelming majority,12,578, were convicted of crimes and 3,499 had pending criminal charges. The Atlanta field office, which is responsible for enforcing immigration law in Georgia as well as South and North Carolina, ranked second with 13,247 arrests, 8,009 of them convicted for state crimes. Another 3,943 illegal aliens had pending criminal charges. Atlanta field office leadership has repeatedly blasted local law enforcement officials within its jurisdiction for releasing droves of illegal immigrant criminals back onto the streets after being jailed for serious state crimes, accusing the sanctuary jurisdictions of creating a “serious public safety threat.”

In North Carolina alone, hundreds of violent criminals were released by local authorities last year to honor measures that offer illegal immigrants sanctuary. Among them were illegal aliens charged with serious violations such as homicide, kidnapping, arson and sex offenses. Mecklenburg County, the state’s largest, was among the biggest offenders, releasing numerous violent criminals rather than turn them over to federal authorities for removal. Among them was a previously deported Honduran charged with rape and child sex crimes. The perpetrator, 33-year-old Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, was freed by the county sheriff, who has kept his campaign promise to protect illegal immigrants from the feds. In Buncombe County, North Carolina the elected sheriff recently freed a child sex offender to keep with his county’s sanctuary policy. The Salvadoran national, a registered sex offender charged with four felony counts of statutory sex with an 11-year-old girl, had been in ICE’s radar for years.

The Tar Heel State is hardly alone in making ICE’s enforcement duties more difficult by protecting the most violent of illegal immigrants. Police nationwide are contributing to the crisis, refusing to participate in a local-federal partnership known as 287(g) that notifies ICE of jail inmates in the country illegally so they can be deported after serving time for state crimes. Instead, a growing number of law enforcement agencies are releasing the illegal aliens——many with serious convictions such as child sex offenses, rape and murder—rather than turn them over to federal authorities for removal. In California various police departments released 16 illegal immigrants with criminal records during a three-month period, some arrested and released multiple times by the same agency. Offenders include Mexican, Honduran and Salvadoran nationals charged with murder, rape, assault with a deadly weapon, spousal abuse, driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of illegal drugs and other serious crimes.

We cannot blame Biden for 2019, but it does point toward a trajectory

This article underscores the criminal nature of illegal aliens. If a set of people are ready to break the law in order to enter this country, then they might also be predisposed to breaking the law in other ways (as demonstrated by the figures above).

Therefore, it would behoove us to take measures to keep such a population out (while encouraging the legal immigration that we need).

When American victims reach out, Biden protects illegal alien criminals

The Center for Immigration Studies also informs us that the Biden regime has erased six criminals from the ICE Most Wanted web page after victims reach out.

The Biden administration has removed from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “Most Wanted” webpage six criminal aliens associated with victims who had reached out to ICE for help. This follows the administration’s decision to shutter the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office, which existed to assist people victimized by criminal aliens.

six-voice-most-wanted

One of the aliens, Edwin Mejia, is suspected in the killing of Sarah Root. Her mother, Michelle Root, is testifying before Congress today. With this change, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has explicitly declared that the arrest of Mejia and the others is not a priority. The Biden administration has made it clear that the interests of American citizens take a back seat to the interests of criminal illegal aliens.

Why is Mayorkas helping Mejia evade arrest? It’s not the first time he’s done so. When Mayorkas was in the Obama administration, DHS allowed Mejia to run free because Mejia “did not meet ICE’s enforcement priorities”, despite being charged with vehicular homicide/driving under the influence, a felony. Their policy choice was that a fully deportable alien must first be convicted of a violent crime before ICE can deport the person. The Trump administration ended these anti-enforcement policies, but President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Mayorkas have put these dangerous policies back into effect.

This demonstrates the attitude of Biden to refuse to protect the American people

If Biden will eliminate the office that helps American victims of illegal alien crime, then it stands to reason that Biden values illegal aliens above American victims of crime.

Please prove me wrong.

Lies of insurrection

New lies of insurrection

Immigration activists call Texas border security efforts an ‘insurrection’ against U.S.

The Washington Times reported in a 5 July 2021 article how Democrats called defensive moves of Texas law enforcement to be “insurrection.”

A major Hispanic group issued an Independence Day demand to President Biden to confront growing efforts by red-state governors to impose border security on their own, calling it an “insurrection” that the federal government must put down.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) delivered a letter to the White House on Sunday calling on Mr. Biden to block state governors who have said they would send their National Guard or other assistance to help Texas secure the border.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says the feds have fallen down on the job, he’s ordered his state police and National Guard into the fray, and he’ll construct a border wall with state money.

LULAC said the states are engaging in rebellion with their border security efforts.

“We told the president in no uncertain terms, this is an insurrection by recalcitrant and rebellious states that must be stopped,” says Domingo Garcia, national president of LULAC.

He said Mr. Abbott, who hosted former President Donald Trump for a border visit last week, was “fomenting dangerous racial hatred targeting Latinos.”

LULAC’s Texas director, Rodolfo Rosales Jr., compared the states’ actions to the Civil War.

“We are being invaded by governors of the defeated Confederacy to arm the border against brown women and children escaping political persecution, hunger, and death,” he said.

The states LULAC cited — Arizona, Nebraska, Idaho, Florida and South Dakota — don’t exactly match with the contours of the Confederacy, and questions over states’ ability to influence federal immigration policy extend well beyond the current Biden administration border crisis.

Mr. Trump confronted a wave of resistance from states and localities that declared themselves sanctuaries, refusing to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Former President Obama faced attempts by states to impose their own penalties on illegal immigration and to try to block businesses from hiring those in the country without authorization.

Just like the claim by Jen Psaki that Republicans supported defunding the police, this points toward an opposite truth

In fact, the Democrats have been working to overturn the government through an invasion that they have supported through several presidential terms (an invasion documented through both liberal, main stream, and conservative sources).

Although today’s liberal and main stream press are too busy covering for the Democrat party to cover real stories and would not want to be seen as bullying the demented guy, there are occasionally some conservative journalists that sneak a real story past the Big Tech sensors. Those have been gathered here.

Squad member says Fourth of July is about freedom “for White people”

The Washington Examiner reported in a 5 July 2021 article how Cori Bush said that the Fourth of July was about freedom “for White people.”

Democratic Rep. Cori Bush disputed the Fourth of July’s message of independence on Sunday, saying the holiday only represents freedom “for white people.”

“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people,” Bush, a member of the left-wing “Squad,” wrote on Twitter amid celebrations of the 245th Independence Day. “This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

“We know what our own freedom looks like,” Bush wrote hours later in a follow-up tweet. “End the slavery permitted under the 13th amendment. End the War on Drugs. End police violence. End health care, housing, and education apartheid. WE are the experts on our own liberation. And we won’t stop until it’s won.”

Bush’s analysis garnered sympathy and praise among some tweeters.

“Yes because if any Black person is successful in life it proves Black people are free, with equal opportunity,” author Tim Wise, who describes himself as an antiracism educator, sarcastically wrote in response to a tweet urging people to consider Bush’s success as a rebuttal to her claims. “So when Madam CJ Walker became a millionaire in 1911, obviously all Black people could have done it and it’s their own fault if they didn’t. Airtight logic…”

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters questioned the Declaration of Independence’s guarantee of freedom in a series of tweets of her own, pointing to states’ “voter suppression laws” and the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other African Americans at the hands of police.

“Need I say more?” Waters wrote on Sunday.

Others pushed back on the notion that life in the United States has not improved for black Americans since 1776.

“Black people are free. To say they aren’t is to lie,” Seth Dillon, CEO of satire website the Babylon Beeresponded to Wise. “And they have every opportunity in this country, including the opportunity to run for Congress, like Cori Bush. To say they don’t is to lie. For what purpose do you want them to think of themselves as slaves when they aren’t?”

“Hateful, divisive lies,” Republican Sen. Ted Cruz wrote in response. “The Left hates America. Believe them when they tell you this.”

“You can stop with the racism now Cori and put your race card back in your pocket,” Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote. “4th of July is freedom for all from a tyrannical government.”

The rise of critical race theory, or the philosophy that systemic racism is enshrined in U.S. institutions, has prompted many on the Left to suggest the birth of the U.S. was not in 1776 with the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, but rather in 1619, at the outset of slavery.

The theory has been met with controversy. Those on the Left have celebrated the philosophy. Nikole Hannah-Jones, the founder of the 1619 Project, was granted tenure at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill after a weekslong fight about her promotion of CRT.

Military leaders have also signaled a degree of support for CRT in military training, with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, who is white, testifying before Congress that he wants “to understand white rage.”

“I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin,” Milley said. “That doesn’t make me a communist. So, what is wrong with understanding … the country which we are here to defend?”

Oddly, trying to turn races against one another doesn’t seem to qualify as insurrection

It seems odd that inciting a riot on Twitter does not qualify as insurrection.  Additionally, it is odd that someone so oppressed could:

  1. Command a six-figure salary
  2. After two terms, command a six-figure pension that would not be reduced by the addition of other sources of income
  3. Work in a position that creates laws which creates laws which the rest of us must abide by
  4. Gain “likes” and “retweets” (which may translate into votes, if the millennials can be motivated to vote) just by sending out messages like this on Twitter
  5. Belong to a group of legislators who share her pigmentation and liberal attitudes (a group that denies people with the same pigmentation — but differing political attitudes — entry)

The dated instances of real insurrection

Democrats call for followers to get in the faces of Republicans

Over the years, a number of Democrats have called for their followers to attack Republicans.

Maxine Waters calls for political violence

As reported by the National Review in a 25 June 2018 article, Maxine Waters has called for her followers to attack her political opposition.

Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters, calling for attacks on the Trump administration at a rally in Los Angeles Saturday: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

How exactly does Maxine Waters think this is going to shake out?

Does she think this tactic will be used only by leftist protesters, only against Trump cabinet officials, and that in no circumstance will “pushing back at them” lead to violence against those targeted individuals? Does she think that there is no possible scenario where the security details assigned to protect cabinet officials from harm respond to threatening behavior with force? Does she think that there’s a scenario where the cabinet officials, the president, and his supporters in general decide that because so many leftists are angry, they had better change their minds and their policies?

Does she envision a near-future where Trump and the Right in general avoid policy proposals that offend or anger Leftists, out of a fear of being targeted for “pushback” that will make them unwelcome anywhere?

The only counter-evidence for these scenarios is the entirety of human existence and the complete history of angry mobs. Angry mobs are not discerning or careful. They do not distinguish between their initial target and anyone who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Charles Murray described how an angry mob at Middlebury College attacked political-science professor Allison Stanger as she attempted to walk him to his car after a disrupted speech event:

I didn’t see it happen, but someone grabbed Allison’s hair just as someone else shoved her from another direction, damaging muscles, tendons, and fascia in her neck. I was stumbling because of the shoving. If it hadn’t been for Allison and Bill keeping hold of me and the security guards pulling people off me, I would have been pushed to the ground. That much is sure. What would have happened after that I don’t know, but I do recall thinking that being on the ground was a really bad idea, and I should try really hard to avoid that. Unlike Allison, I wasn’t actually hurt at all.

Stanger disagrees with Murray politically — but the mob didn’t care; she was next to him and for that she got a concussion.

Maxine Waters embraced the thug who threw concrete against a truck driver’s head

A 13 May 2017 Independent Sentinel article points out how Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the thug who beat truck driver Reginald Denny and did a victory dance over the man’s body.

NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent man’s battered body. Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams’ mother to offer her support.

Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplices got off, Waters joined in the celebration.

Damien Williams was released a few years later and went on to murder somebody else. Also, no surprise, he was a member of the Crips.

Bernie Sanders

A 3 March 2016 article in Michigan Live discusses how Bernie Sanders pushed his followers to fight for progressive policies.

Young people who participate in the political process can make changes that seem impossible now, Sen. Bernie Sanders told thousands of students and community members gathered at the Breslin Center in East Lansing Wednesday.

Sanders said several years ago people would have thought gay marriage, a black president or a $15 per hour minimum wage was impossible. But these things happened because of a groundswell, not a top-down approach.

“The point is that is how change takes place. Have a vision, be prepared to fight for that vision, understand that it won’t come overnight but keep your eye on the prize and we can make extraordinary things happen,” Sanders said.

He’s running against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination. Michigan’s primary takes place March 8.

Bernie Sanders acolyte James Hodgkinson

Front Page Mag discusses leftist extremism that the FBI will not address.

Briana Sykes spent over a year broadcasting the racist hate of the Black Lives Matter movement. Last year, she reposted a message from Senator Bernie Sanders, promoted by BLM activist Shaun King, stirring up anger over false claims about Breonna Taylor, who was killed when her drug dealer boyfriend opened fire on police.

“Our criminal justice system is racist,” the Sanders smear of the police falsely claimed.

Shortly afterward she posted an anti-police cartoon distributed by the Black Berner Coalition.

Briana promoted a Black Lives Matter “economic boycott” and the claim that BLM rioters were “compelled to burn s___ down” because they’re an “oppressed group”.

Over the summer, the same account linked to Briana Sykes spread disinformation that the Trump administration had “literally killed hundreds of protesters in front of the White House”. The #DCBlackout hoax was spread by pro-BLM accounts. It was not clear who was behind a seeming attempt at inciting violence, but researchers suspect it was an enemy government.

And then after over a year of hate and Bernie Sanders memes, Briana Sykes tried to murder a police officer at a Juneteenth parade in Flint, Michigan.

According to authorities, Briana drove up to a police officer and opened fire on him. The officer shot back, wounding the 19-year-old woman. While the officer wasn’t hit, according to a black eyewitness, he “fell to the ground crying because… he didn’t want to do whatever he had to do.”

A fellow officer, black, is seen assisting him on the video.

Cell phone video appears to show that the unnamed white officer was still trying to give her a chance to surrender, shouting, “Show me your hands!”

Risking his life to avoid another police shooting didn’t pay off. It happened anyway.

What really happened at the Capitol on that day?

Analysis of January 6 — Seemingly engineered by Deep State to destroy Trump and entire conservative movement

LifeSite News comments on the events of 6 January 2021 and proposes reasons for the actions taken that day.

Two weeks ago the Biden administration released a new dossier for confronting “domestic terrorism” which Tucker Carlson referred to as “a fascist document” that “reads like a manual for targeting the administration’s political opponents.”

This “National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism” designates “domestic violent extremism as a national priority” and warns against “anti-government sentiment,” and what it may perceive to be “incitement” toward such violence.

It suggests, for example, that those who believe and discuss the case for “fraud in the recent general election,” or object to government mandates “related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” may be considered guilty of “incitement” and punished for such views. It also encourages Americans to report to the government family members and friends who may be “radicalizing,” announces an alliance between global governments and Big Tech to identify and censor online content they consider dangerous, and pledges to confront “the proliferation of guns” in the United States.

During the administration’s press conference on the topic last week, a spokesman proposed how the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol provided proof of the “urgent” domestic terror threat the nation is facing. He noted that “manifestations” of such immediate dangers have already been seen in “the pretty extraordinary pace and scope of work done by investigators and prosecutors in the wake of the January 6 events.”

Given the Biden administration’s ongoing movement toward an exceeding expansion of government surveillance power, at the expense of American citizens’ civil liberties, it’s important to investigate the Democrat and media narrative of what exactly happened on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol and analyze whether these events provide any justification for the “fascist” legal structures being attempted or put in place to combat the supposed threat of “domestic terrorism.”

This comes at no surprise, since it works as a continuation of the opposition the swamp held for Trump

Just as the NSA used the FISA courts to spy on the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration, it would seem that the Democrat-affiliated swamp worked to demonize conservatives on 6 January 2021.

Who was there on 6 January 2021?

There were leftists among the MAGA people

The Western Journal reports that proven leftists embedded themselves among the MAGA people.

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.”

The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists.


Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6.

This fits with earlier posts

This report fits with previous posts that show BLM involvement, Antifa involvement and plots, and some good Americans stood on that day to provide a voice for reason.

Far Left activist John Sullivan from Utah who was arrested for storming the US Capitol is released without charges

According to a 9 January 2021 post at the Gateway Pundit, one of the many Antifa members identified as breaching the capitol has been released.

SullivanEarlier this week CNN interviewed John Sullivan from Utah after the shooting death of Ashli Babbit by Capitol Hill police.

John Sullivan, a noted leftist leader from Utah, stormed the US Capitol with fellow activists on Wednesday.
John Sullivan is a Black Lives Matter goon from Utah who was flown into DC during the planned “Stop the Steal” rally.

In August John Sullivan threatened to “rip President Trump from the White House” during violence in Washington DC. Sullivan was flown to DC for the protests.

From our earlier report: “We About to Go Get that MotherF***er! – It’s Time for Revolution!” – VIDEO – BLM Threatens to Rip President Trump from White House

John Sullivan stormed the US Capitol. He was near Ashli Babbit when she was killed by Capitol police.

Amy Mek at RAIR Foundation reported:

On Friday investigative journalist Millie Weaver ran into John Sullivan in Washington DC. She overheard him say he was not being charged.

John Sullivan organized a BLM-Antifa action at the Washington Memorial on Wednesday, January 6th — then he was seen storming the US Capitol!
How many of his Antifa buddies were with him?

I don’t remember the press or the politicians complaining about Seattle, DC, and other Antifa or BLM riot locations

Even when there were murders in the CHAZ, I don’t remember the Democrats in the media or the FBI calling for prosecution. All I remember was the “summer of love” and silence from Pelosi.

However, I do remember DC when Republicans were attacked in August 2020. I remember life savings burning in Minneapolis while Democrats gave Antifa and BLM space to riot. I remember monuments across America being destroyed by Anitfa and BLM and we were told to understand.

I even remember that AOC and Pressley raised bail funds for Antifa members who attacked police in Boston.

Unindicted co-conspirators from the FBI stood among those at the rally

Zero Hedge points out how reports from the FBI reveal that unindicted co-conspirators were mixed among the attendees of the Trump rally.

Tucker Carlson dropped several bombshells on his show Tuesday night, chief among them was from a Revolver News report that the FBI was likely involved in organizing the Jan. 6 Capitol ‘insurrection,’ and were similarly involved in the kidnapping plot against Michigan Governor Gretchin Whitmer.

Why are there so many factual matters that we don’t understand about that day?” asked Carlson.

Why is the Biden administration preventing us from knowing? Why is the administration still hiding more than 10,000 hours of surveillance tape from the US capitol on January 6th? What could possibly be the reason for that – even as they call for more openness… they could release those tapes today, but they’re not. Why?”

Carlson notes that Revolver News has dissected court filings surrounding the Capitol riot, suggests that unindicted co-conspirators in the case are likely to have been federal operatives.

We at Revolver News have noticed a pattern from our now months-long investigation into 1/6 — and in particular from our meticulous study of the charging documents related to those indicted. In many cases the unindicted co-conspirators appear to be much more aggressive and egregious participants in the very so-called “conspiracy” serving as the basis for charging those indicted.

The question immediately arises as to why this is the case, and forces us to consider whether certain individuals are being protected from indictment because they were involved in 1/6 as undercover operatives or confidential informants for a federal agency.

Key segment from Tucker:

“We know that the government is hiding the identity of many law enforcement officers that were present at the Capitol on January 6th, not just the one that killed Ashli Babbitt. According to the government’s own court filing, those law enforcement officers participated in the riot – sometimes in violent ways. We know that because without fail, the government has thrown the book at most people who were present at the Capitol on Jan. 6. There was a nationwide dragnet to find them – and many are still in solitary confinement tonight. But strangely, some of the key people who participated on Jan. 6 have not been charged.”

Look at the documents, the government calls those people ‘unindicted co-conspirators.’ What does that mean? Well it means that in potentially every case they were FBI operatives… in the Capitol, on January 6th.”

“For example, one of those unindicted co-conspirators is someone government documents identify only as “person two.” According to those documents, person two stayed in the same hotel room as a man called Thomas Caldwell – an ‘insurrectionist.’ A man alleged to be a member of the group “The Oathkeepers.” Person two also “stormed the barricades” at the Capitol on January 6th alongside Thomas Caldwell. The government’s indictments further indicate that Caldwell – who by the way is a 65-year-old man… was led to believe there would be a “quick reaction force” also participating on January 6th. That quick reaction force Caldwell was told, would be led by someone called “Person 3,” who had a hotel room and an accomplice with them. But wait. Here’s the interesting thing. Person 2 and person 3 were organizers of the riot. The government knows who they are, but the government has not charged them. Why is that? You know why. They were almost certainly working for the FBI. So FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol on January 6th according to government documents. And those two are not alone. In all, Revolver news reported there are “upwards of 20 unindicted co-conspirators in the Oath Keeper indictments, all playing various roles in the conspiracy, who have not been charged for virtually the exact same activities and in some cases much, much more severe activities – as those named alongside them in the indictments.”

Biden energy policy blips

In order to silence the green left, energy leaders work for cleaner energy

Oil and natural gas industry leaders work to lower methane emission rates

The Washington Examiner reported in a 6 July 2021 article how oil and natural gas industry leaders have worked to reduce methane emissions.

President Joe Biden has signed legislation that paves the way for more fulsome regulation of U.S. methane emissions, a contributor to global climate change. Our industry takes our central role in reducing U.S. methane emissions seriously and has been hard at work reducing methane emissions rates in the largest producing regions — a model that could be replicated worldwide.

Methane is a greenhouse gas emitted from agriculture, landfills, and energy production, and it is the main component of natural gas. China is the world’s largest emitter of methane emissions, yet the United States is close behind.

While natural gas and oil producers have reduced methane emissions from production and transmission, we’re continuously developing new technologies and processes to make further progress as our industry works with the Biden administration on the direct regulation of methane from new and existing sources. It’s one way America can act on climate while also developing the energy needed for economic growth and national security.

Critically important in this is the Environmental Partnership, whose 90 upstream and midstream companies represent nearly three-quarters of new U.S. onshore natural gas and oil production. Since its launch in 2017, the partnership has created action programs targeting key sources of methane emissions as identified by the Environmental Protection Agency, including a new flare management program to reduce flare volumes, promote beneficial uses of associated gas, improve flare reliability and efficiency, and collect valuable data to calculate flare intensity as the key metric to gauge year-to-year progress.

Working together — sharing information, best practices, and technologies — members of the partnership have helped shape an environment in which total methane emissions from U.S. natural gas systems have fallen, according to the EPA, even as marketed natural gas production has increased more than 90% since 2005.

Indeed, methane emissions per unit of production, which measures emissions intensity, fell nearly 70% between 2011 and 2019 across five of the major producing regions, according to data from the EPA and the U.S. Energy Information Administration. This indicates the industry’s efforts on efficiency measures designed to reduce emissions were successful.

Tackling the two-part challenge of addressing climate change and meeting the world’s growing demand for energy requires a range of solutions and partners. And U.S. energy producers have made significant progress, yet more can be done by our industry, the government, and other industries.

Building on progress to date, the industry recently released a comprehensive blueprint to meet the challenge of supplying the world’s growing need for energy while simultaneously ushering in a lower-carbon future. In our “Climate Action Framework,” we highlighted how reducing emissions and delivering energy are fundamentally connected and how governments, industries, and consumers together can achieve both.

I have to admit that many of the oil and gas industry execs have green leanings

A number of the oil and gas industry executives have started green initiatives (like tree planting at restored drilling sites, creating oil from algae, and improving photovoltaics.

Therefore, it is little surprise that oil industry companies would jump to comply with Joe Biden’s climate change framework. Whether this will have any affect while China and India continue on their paths is another question.

The company behind the Keystone pipeline fights for its fair share of NAFTA work

TC Energy to file NAFTA complaint with State Department

One America News Network reported in a 5 July 2021 article that TC Energy will file a NAFTA complaint with the Department of State.

The company behind the Keystone XL pipeline made the announcement of suing Joe Biden for closing down the project. TC Energy filed a Notice of Intent with the U.S. State Department last week.

TC Energy is looking to recoup $15 billion in damages accrued since Biden cancelled construction on his first day in office. The energy company released a statement in June, which confirmed the termination of the pipeline project.

TC Energy argued the Biden administration breached the North American Trade Agreement as well as the terms of the USMCA Deal signed by President Trump. Critics argue the Keystone XL termination could influence environmentalists to pressure Biden on revoking permits for various other pipeline projects.

This is not just a company. These are lives and careers.

With all of Joe’s crowing about gains in the service industry (waiting tables, working as short order cooks, and so on), those jobs do not cover the expenses incurred by people who paid to learn to become pipe fitters, welders, engineers, technical writers, and other specialized vocations.

A win at the Supreme Court for oil and gas

The Washington Examiner reported in a 29 June 2021 article that the Supreme Court has delivered a win for the U.S. energy sector.

SCOTUS BACKS PENNEAST PIPELINE IN EMINENT DOMAIN CASE: The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 this morning that the developers of the $1 billion PennEast natural gas pipeline can seize New Jersey land to build the project, granting a big win to the oil and gas industry.

The decision did not break along usual lines, with Republican appointees chief Justice John RobertsSamuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh voting in the majority with Democratic appointees Stephen Breyer and Sonia SotomayorNeil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett, both appointees of former President Donald Trump, dissented along with Clarence Thomas, the most conservative justice, and Democrat appointee Elena Kagan.

Roberts, in the majority opinion, wrote that the decision rested on the idea that when New Jersey ratified the Constitution in 1787, it “surrendered their immunity from the exercise of the federal eminent domain.” Roberts added that the 1938 Natural Gas Act allows the federal government to give individual properties “the ability to condemn property in court.”

The ruling reverses a Third Circuit appeals court decision that project developer PennEast couldn’t seize New Jersey-owned land for the pipeline.

FERC previously authorized the project under the Natural Gas Act, allowing the company to use federal eminent domain power. But the state of New Jersey challenged the project on sovereign-immunity grounds.

PennEast’s 116-mile pipeline would transport as much as 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from northern Pennsylvania to New Jersey.

Why the ruling matters: The PennEast case was closely watched by the oil and gas industry, which feared letting the appeals court decision stand would have given states effective veto power over natural gas pipeline projects.

(Read more on why this matters and who opposes this decision at the Washington Examiner)

While this win may not last, it is a win for now

While I do not expect this to stand when attacked from a different direction in a different pipeline case, at least this allows this one pipeline to proceed.

Shuttering the U.S. energy renaissance will hit American families’ finances

The Washington Times provided information in a 21 April 2021 commentary on how the shuttering of the U.S. energy sector will hit American pocketbooks.

Pocketbook issues are what families in Arkansas and across the U.S. spend their time thinking about, planning around and hoping for minimal, manageable fluctuations that don’t significantly impact their bottom lines.

One way their wallets and bank accounts get squeezed to the point of genuine hardship and frustration is when energy prices rise above what they have budgeted for. When costs at the pump or to heat and light homes increase, it has real-world consequences. Suddenly, moms and dads, grandparents and other caregivers start having to make tough choices in order to keep paying bills and afford life’s basic necessities.

In recent years, the energy renaissance we’ve experienced as a nation helped usher in lower prices as well as reduced carbon dioxide emissions. But now it is under threat.

Policies like canceling the Keystone XL pipeline and pausing new oil and gas drilling on federal lands make little sense to Arkansans. And what’s worse, the consequences are already being felt in my state.

When the news about halting Keystone XL reverberated through the country and into Arkansas, one Little Rock business, Welspun Tubular, took an immediate hit. Based at an industrial site located within an intermodal port along the Arkansas River, the company was set to produce more than one million feet of 36-inch pipe for the project. The company employs 600 workers and added 50 to its facility to help fulfill that contract. The demise of the project has created many questions and few answers.

Arkansas pipefitters and welders are also suffering as a result of this move. Members of a local pipeline union have already been laid off and 200 more lost an employment opportunity when the project was canceled. Making matters worse, the justification for scrapping Keystone XL was partly under the guise of environmental concerns despite the fact that moving the oil extracted from Canada using other modes of transportation will produce more carbon emissions than transporting it through the pipeline.

In the Natural State, we of course want to balance our energy needs with environmental preservation concerns and strike an appropriate balance that protects and conserves natural resources while also providing the economic opportunities that drive our state forward and don’t harm the finances of hardworking families.

That’s why I support an all-of-the-above approach to secure American energy independence including wind, solar and nuclear. This must be a cornerstone for creating cleaner and more sustainable energy production.

We are already seeing effects of this

Since the state of California is reaching out and tapping its citizens in the pocketbook through a new $0.51/gallon tax, CBSLA reports in a 1 July 2021 article that gasoline prices have hit a 9-year high.

US-ECONOMY-GASOLINE Californians going to the pump will likely notice another increase in gas prices Thursday, as a new state gas tax hike takes effect.

The new tax will increase the price of regular by six-tenths of a cent, which will bring the state gas excise tax to 51.1 cents per gallon. The tax on diesel will increase by four-tenths of a cent to 38.9 cents.

The hike is part of Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair & Accountability Act, which the California Legislature passed in April of 2017 and includes increases in gas taxes and vehicle registration fees. The money raised by the gas tax goes towards paying for bridge and road repairs.

The tax increases annually based on the California Consumer Price Index.

When it took affect in November of 2017, it increased the gas tax by 12 cents. It then went up another 5.6 cents in July of 2019, to 47.3 cents per gallon. It went up another 3.2 cents in July of 2020 to 50.5 cents.

In November of 2018, California voters rejected a proposition that would have repealed the tax. California has the highest gas tax in the nation.

The average price of gas in Los Angeles County Thursday was $4.31 a gallon. Southern California gas prices are currently at their highest rate since 2015.

New York City’s mayoral primary vote count voided after a 135,000 ballot discrepancy

The Epoch Times reported in a  that a 30 June 2021 article that a 135,000 vote discrepancy in the New York Mayoral vote has resulted in the voiding of the primary.

Signage is seen at an early voting location ahead of the New York City mayoral election in Harlem, New York CityThe New York City Board of Elections said Tuesday that 135,000 test ballots were accidentally included in a preliminary tally of votes cast in the city’s mayoral primary election, leading to the count being voided and drawing the ire of candidates.

New York City’s first attempt at ranked-choice voting (RCV) descended into confusion after the elections board abruptly removed updated vote totals from its website hours after posting them, citing a “discrepancy” in the numbers.

“We are aware there is a discrepancy in the unofficial RCV round by round elimination report,” the board said in a statement, adding that it was working with technical staff to identify the discrepancy and asking  “candidates to have patience.”

Later, the board posted another statement saying it had inadvertently failed to remove sample ballots it had used to test its software.

“When the cast vote records were extracted for the first pull of RCV results, it included both test and election night results, producing approximately 135,000 additional records,” the board said, apologizing for the error and vowing “to ensure the most accurate up to date results are reported.”

“The cast vote record will be re-generated and the RCV rounds will be re-tabulated,” the board said.

New York City’s primary election was held a week ago, when preliminary results showed Eric Adams, the Brooklyn borough president, with a 10-point lead, which appeared to shrink to two points on Tuesday when voters’ second, third, fourth, and fifth choices were factored in under the ranked-choice voting system being used for the first time in a mayoral contest.

Ok. I know I held this for a while. Also, I know I cheated by stealing a tweet.

Still, it seems like a sweet irony that Democrats have to acknowledge the possibility of a crooked voting system in New York. 

This isn’t the half of it.

Crazy thing is that the voting inequities in New York are even worse than the 135,000 ballot discrepancy. In New York, they employ a weighted system called a “ranked-choice voting system” (where you vote for five favorites and the loser contributes votes to the winner). Is this system unnecessarily confusing? Of course, it is. How else could the liberal elites keep the results of the elections hidden from the useful idiots of the New York Democrat machine?

Several hundred thousand ballots missing in Arizona

The National File reported in a 14 June 2021 article that hundreds of thousands of ballots counted in the 2020 election have gone missing.

Several hundred thousand votes that were counted in Maricopa County, Arizona are associated with missing ballots, according to an audit organizer who is speaking regularly with people on the audit floor.

“We found a ballot shortage, anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of the votes,” Josh Barnett, an audit organizer who led the affidavit drive to make the audit happen, tells NATIONAL FILE. “It looks like a couple hundred thousand ballots are unaccounted for. The ballots are missing.”

“I also know that there were boxes filled with blank ballots in those pallets. There were blanks in there,” Barnett said, citing a person who is frequently at the audit site as part of the audit process. “They (election officials) were doing it for appearance, to try to hide the fact that ballots are missing by saying, ‘It’s okay, they’re all right here.’ But the ballots are blank.”

The massive enthusiasm for the Arizona audit is spreading to other states as Audit Fever sweeps America. NATIONAL FILE REPORTED: American patriot activists tell NATIONAL FILE that they are just getting started when it comes to sparking 2020 election audits in disputed states. Some of the main patriot organizers who are leading the audit effort are very optimistic that what started in Maricopa County, Arizona will now spread quickly to nine other states. Targeted states include Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

Patriotic delegations from Georgia, Alaska, and Colorado visited the Maricopa County audit floor in Phoenix, Arizona this week following a visit from a Pennsylvania delegation led by State Senator Doug Mastriano, who met with President Donald Trump in Trump Tower. Insiders tell NATIONAL FILE that more states will be heading to Maricopa County.

So Democrats are getting scared.

In an article published on 2 July 2021 in Red State, we find how Democrats seem to be getting extremely nervous as of late.

A.U.D.I.T.: About Undermining Democrat-Implemented Theft (of elections)

The Democrat-media complex (and RINO allies like Liz Cheney) have been telling us that the 2020 elections were the most secure ever and that any talk of systemic election fraud is “baseless” and a “conspiracy theory.” The phrase “baseless claims of election fraud” has been endlessly repeated by Democrats and their lickspittle media since that CISA announcement on 12 November that included this statement: There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.” What a bald-faced lie!

This article is the seventh in a series that has summarized election irregularities uncovered, independent analyses performed, affidavits filed, video interviews given, sworn testimonies made, and commentary from election experts provided across the US. Refer to the six previous articles hereherehereherehere, and here. And then there were separate articles on write-in and minor party vote “adjudication,” Arizona shenanigansWisconsin irregularities, and Pennsylvania irregularities. All of this is a mountain of evidence that keeps growing every day, and the Democrat-media complex continues to ignore it all – because they know what they did!

How do we know that they know what they did? Because not a single prominent Democrat has agreed to – or called for – a full forensic audit to validate their 2020 election integrity/security narrative. Why not simply agree to a complete audit and prove once and for all that the 2020 election was “the most secure ever”? In fact, they are using every political and legal maneuver possible to thwart the completion of audits in any state. What are they hiding? And while Hillary Clinton has endlessly brayed her “Big Lie” during various interviews over the last four years that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her, neither she nor any Democrat demanded audits. That’s a major red flag, too!

Another red flag is the chaos in the Democrat primary for New York City mayor this week in which 135,000 “test ballots” were counted:

The New York City Board of Elections on Tuesday faced swift backlash over an error that resulted in 135,000 pre-election test votes being counted because they were not properly purged from the system.

The BOE took to Twitter to announce the issue and said these test votes were not cleared from the Election Management System. The board apologized and said it took “immediate measures to ensure the most accurate up to date results are reported.”

The result was more ballots than registered voters “in one City Council District in the 2021 Brooklyn Primary.” Were these NY incidents just “inadvertent errors,” or are they a window into just how easy it is to “accidentally” manipulate automated Election Management Systems. It will be interesting to watch the Democrat-media complex try to explain it all away.

The party of bond reform and felony bail reform perp walks the Trump organization CFO


Cy Vance’s Trump case is straight from a banana republic — punish your political enemies

The New York Post reports how Cy Vance’s case against the CFO of Trump smacks of banana republic justice.

nyp-coverDonald Trump has long claimed that investigations of him are a partisan “witch hunt.” Manhattan DA Cy Vance seems determined to make Trump’s point for him by indicting the Trump Organization along with its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg.

The 15-count indictment throws a kitchen sink of charges, including grand larceny, conspiracy, scheme to defraud,and tax fraud. But the whole thing comes down to paying perks to Weisselberg — such as his parking garage fees, tuition for family members and reimbursement of holiday gratuities — and not reporting them as taxable income, or reporting that the wrong Trump entity paid them.

For this they slapped Weisselberg in handcuffs Thursday and paraded him in front of the media — a stage-managed political show trial.

Corporations almost never get criminally prosecuted for this sort of thing, but Vance wanted the name “Trump” in his indictment. You can bet that he would have indicted The Donald if he had the goods. The feds — who’ve been auditing Trump’s taxes forever — haven’t filed charges.

Equal justice under law means the same law for everyone. That is violated not only when we give powerful people a pass in cases that would get ordinary people locked up, but also when prominent figures get pursued over things that would never get a normal person prosecuted.

Attorney General Robert Jackson, later a Supreme Court justice and Nuremberg prosecutor, warned against “picking the man and then searching the law books, or putting investigators to work, to pin some offense on him,” in which case “the real crime becomes that of being unpopular with the predominant or governing group, being attached to the wrong political views, or being personally obnoxious to or in the way of the prosecutor himself.”

Bring this up the next time a Democrat wants to “defund the police”

In fact we need to level the ground around:

  1. The lack of any charges against Hillary Clinton for her abuses of secret documents on her server.
  2. The lack of any charges against Hunter Biden, James Biden, or others in the Biden clan as they pulled in large sums while Joe was in office.
  3. This political prosecution of those associated with the party not currently in power (Roger Stone, General Flynn, and now Allen Weisselberg).
  4. The fact that Joe Biden needs to disavow the defunding of the police (which he supported in the interview at the end of the video below) an denounce the funding of bail for Antifa and BLM members (as his and Kamala’s campaign workers bailed out Antifa members, BLM members, common thugs, and child abusers.)
  5. The Democrat party elites need to get in touch with the Soros-funded District Attorneys in Houston, Chicago, New York, and other Democrat strongholds and get them to stop releasing felons on low-bail and no-bail bonds. Bail reform does not work for felons. In Houston (as of 24 June 2021) 225 people had been murdered. A large portion of those were done by felons released by the social justice District Attorney and social justice judges (all Democrat).

Biden tries to woo Americans with a series of puns bragging about saving Americans $0.16

The Daily Caller points to a weird tweet by Biden where he claims that the fixings of a 4th of July spread would cost $0.16 less (a big, bald-faced lie).

The White House is relishing in the excitement that President Joe Biden’s economic policies saved Americans a whopping $0.16.

“Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year,” the White House tweeted. “It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish.”

The slideshow attached to the tweet shows how prices for typical cookout foods, such as beef, ice cream and lemonade have allegedly decreased over the year.

“The cost of a 4th of July cookout in 2021 is down $0.16 from last year,” the infographic claimed.

Republican New York Rep. Elise Stefanik countered that other goods in the economy are steadily on the rise.

Other Twitter users were also quick to slam the post.

Two pieces of good news totally unrelated to Biden and one possibly related to Biden

The good news unrelated to Biden

The rate of U.S. kids growing up with both mom and dad has reached a 30-year high

PJ Media reports in a 30 June 2021 article that a record number of U.S. kids are living in homes with both mom and dad.

The Institute for Family Studies (IFS) found a surprising outcome when it tabulated the latest U.S. Census Bureau data:  the percentage of children who live in two-parent households has risen to a thirty-year high of 70.4%.

kidsWithBothParents

The finding was satisfying, yet surprising because for more than half a century all the “experts” on the Left have agreed that the nuclear family was antiquated and not beneficial to society:

The two-parent family of married mother and father bringing up their own biological children would soon be replaced by a menagerie of alternate family forms: cohabiting couples with children; single-parent families; blended families; same-sex couples raising children conceived and born in a variety of unconventional ways; and so on.

In other words, the Left’s so-called experts thought they had won the cultural war for the family by doing everything in their power to destroy the traditional family values of the two-parent household.

Thankfully, it appears they were wrong. Clearly, the nuclear family is alive and thriving even in the midst of a pandemic — though not at levels it once was.

The proportion of children living with two parents has gradually recovered, reaching 70% in 2020. And the fraction living in one-parent families has slipped from 28% to 25%, while the number living with neither parent has leveled off between 4 and 5 percent.

As Figure 1 above shows, the upward trend for two-parent households began in the mid-1990s and took off in earnest around 2008 where it steadily climbed to 2020’s numbers. While this is compelling for sure, the Census Bureau does include some flaws in its data by combining data from family subsets like “stepparent and adoptive families with both birth-parent families, making their two-parent category more inclusive than commonly understood.”

With those flaws in mind, Nicholas Zill from IFS crunched the 2020 Census Bureau numbers further to show a more detailed picture of family living arrangements:

In Figure 2, it’s plain to see that kids living with both parents are still within the dominant living arrangement. Zill found that even though 63.1% represents a smaller percentage than 70.4%, it “actually represents a small increase from what the proportion of children living with both birth parents was in 2012,” which was 61%.

This shows the deficit in numbers from which liberals start

Not only does this show that liberals who want to minimize the family remain in the minority, it provides a great place for conservatives to encourage like-thinking Americans to consider other conservative ideas.

but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; (1 Peter 3:15 NASB)

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7‭ NASB)

Data says homeschooling is skyrocketing

PJ Media also reported in a 24 March 2021 article that a homeschooling has become a permanent fixture among families with kids.

Homeschooling rates increased significantly in the fall of 2020, according to a Household Pulse Survey from the Census Bureau. Previous estimates had shown that parents had selected this option at increasing rates between 1999 and 2012, when homeschooling plateaued and remained steady at about 3.3% of children. The pandemic, school closures nationwide, and some parents seeing the racialized and sexualized classroom curricula have changed this statistic significantly.

According to the Census Bureau:

In the first week (April 23-May 5) of Phase 1 of the Household Pulse Survey, about 5.4% of U.S. households with school-aged children reported homeschooling .

By fall, 11.1% of households with school-age children reported homeschooling (Sept. 30-Oct. 12). A clarification was added to the school enrollment question to make sure households were reporting true homeschooling rather than virtual learning through a public or private school.

That change represents an increase of 5.6 percentage points and a doubling of U.S. households that were homeschooling at the start of the 2020-2021 school year compared to the prior year.

While the Census Bureau found an increase across all racial groups, it saw the most significant increase in households that identified as black or African American by a factor of five.

homeschooling-on-the-rise-during-covid-19-pandemic-figure-1

Across the nation, 28 out of 50 states had an increase in homeschooling that was statistically significant, and so did eight of the largest metropolitan statistical areas. States with the most significant increases varied between open ones, like Florida with a 13.1% increase, and those with longer lockdowns, like Massachusetts, at 10.6%. The large metros that saw increases usually suffered the longest lockdowns, such as Detroit, Michigan, and the greater New York area.

As schools resume, it is not clear how many parents intend to continue homeschooling. According to Education Week in November, parents showing an interest in public school alternatives has increased:

Homeschooling in response to the pandemic is driving enrollment declines in schools and districts across the country, according to a majority of principals and superintendents surveyed by the EdWeek Research Center. Fifty-eight percent in a mid-October survey listed home schooling as being a major contributor to enrollment declines caused by COVID-19—more than any other single reason, such as losing students to charter schools, private schools, or “pandemic pods” in which families band together to hire instructors who teach their children at home.

(continued)

Individual parents interviewed cited the increased time for interest-based learning in the homeschool environment and more control over who their children socialize with when they connect with other homeschooling parents. With the increase in remote work that is likely to accompany the end of the pandemic, parents may find they can balance working virtually with engaging in a homeschool curriculum. If parents keep moving toward homeschooling, city and state leaders who kept schools closed, and teachers’ unions who made ridiculous and never-ending demands, have no one to blame but themselves for playing politics with the pandemic.

While the press likes to portray women as victims of the pandemic because workforce participation has dropped to 57%, its lowest since 1988, employers may need to take another look. At least two out of five considered leaving or downsizing their career during COVID-19. Many noted that while working remotely, their children came first. Perhaps some of them noticed how much their presence during the day benefits their children. While some may like to return to flexible or project-based work, it would not be surprising to find some do not return at all because they choose not to.

As with America’s tendencies on the family, it seems we have turned toward a time-tested model of education

Those who have a practice of reading the Bible know that this parent/child instruction dates back to the days of Moses:

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. (Deuteronomy 6:6‭-‬7 NASB)

The good news that possibly relates to Biden

U.S. has the lowest levels of public trust in media among 46 countries

Fox News reported in a 25 June 2021 article that American media ranks at the lowest level of public trust among the 46 countries polled.

The United States ranks last among 46 countries when it comes to public trust in the media, according to a report published Tuesday.

The survey, which was conducted in Jan. and Feb. with approximately 92,000 respondents, found that only 29% of those in the U.S. said they could trust most news most of the time, while Finland held the highest level of trust in the media at 65%. The study was commissioned by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, and conducted by YouGov.

The survey also found that trust in the media improved in nearly every country surveyed, but not in the U.S., where the level of trust remained largely flat from the previous year.

According to the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, a possible explanation for the lack of growth in how much people trust the media was “extreme political polarization” in the U.S. It pointed out that 75% of those in the survey who identified as being on the right of the political spectrum thought coverage of their views was unfair.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald described the findings in the report as “unsurprising.” “Most amazing is that the corporate sector of the US media is failing in every respect: financially, culturally, collapsing trust. Any other industry failing like this would engage in self-critique, asking why. They never do,” he wrote.

Other critics on social media argued that the media needed to “take an opportunity for introspection,” and realize that it was not a matter of perception from the public, while some questioned why anyone would be surprised by the data.

I know that trolling in the tweets ranks as lazy journalism, but I don’t get paid to wade in the Biden cesspool

Of course, the story of poor media trust relates to Biden because the press has been caught giving Biden continuous, massive passes on everything. When he leans forward and whispers incoherent statements (including lies), they say nothing. When he thanks Black women for stocking grocery shelves (as if that is all they can do), they respond with their imitation of crickets. Of course, it hasn’t been that long ago that the press made a point of publishing multiple negative articles on any good or bad thing President Trump did.

Understandably, I find myself a little lazy when it comes to wading through the Biden cesspool. Still, a few of these gathered tweets might shine a light on the low level of trust:


Nonetheless, were I to post anything about the political affiliation of Twitter, Google, Facebook, or most journalists, that tweet would be taken down nearly immediately. Therefore, the most telling thing may be the thing that we know, but cannot say.

Biden Justice Department promotes a return to lawlessness

Featured

Justice Department restores use of consent decrees for police abuses

The New York Times reported on 16 April 2021 that Biden’s DOJ has returned to using intimidation tactics against police departments (and, thereby, promoting an increase in crime in those jurisdictions).

GarlandMaskedThugAttorney General Merrick Garland rescinded a Trump administration policy curbing use of the decrees, which provide a way to force changes in police departments.

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland on Friday rescinded a Trump administration policy that curbed the use of consent decrees to address police misconduct, as the Justice Department prepared to step up its role in investigating allegations of racist and illegal behavior by police forces amid a nationwide outcry about the deaths of Black people at the hands of officers.

Mr. Garland’s widely expected decision revives one of the department’s most effective tools in forcing law enforcement agencies to evaluate and change their practices. Consent decrees are court-approved deals between the Justice Department and local governmental agencies that create a road map for changes to the way they operate.

We know that both the Harris and Biden campaigns bailed out Antifa and BLM protesters

We even know that one of the rioters was a child abuser, but that does not matter to Democrats. Heck, considering the past of John Podesta and other top Democrats, that may be a resume enhancement.

Nonetheless, when dealing with the police, the goal should be reducing crime — not growing it. Having the police looking over their shoulders due to a federal policy of police intimidation will result in more crime because the police will second-guess themselves rather than consistently enforce the law.

Of course, that probably is the Democrat’s aim. They create a problem (crime, by releasing felons on low-bail or no-bail bonds as they have many times in Houston). They propose a solution that affords them more power (such as either a federal police force or a system like the one above where police are under their thumb). Then they create another problem (like disarming us) and it goes on.

Biden DOJ promotes lawlessness in voting laws by suing Georgia

ABC News commented on the Biden DOJ lawsuit and the response to that suit.

GarlandUnmaskedThugThe Department of Justice is suing Georgia over its sweeping election law recently passed by Republicans, alleging it violates the federal Voting Rights Act by seeking to disenfranchise Black voters.

“Our complaint alleges that recent changes to Georgia’s election laws were enacted with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of Black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color, in violation of Section Two of the Voting Rights Act,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said on Friday.

Garland said the bill signed into law earlier this year by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp includes provisions that “make it harder for people to vote,” and the complaint being filed by the department alleges the restrictions were passed “with the purpose of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race or color.”

For months, President Joe Biden and other Democrats have been heavily critical of Georgia Republicans and Kemp for signing Georgia’s voting bill into law, equating it to “Jim Crow-era” segregation laws while arguing it’s premised on the lie that widespread fraud tainted the 2020 election.

The department’s lawsuit will be separate from seven other lawsuits that have been filed against the state of Georgia since the election bill was signed into law in March.

Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the department’s Civil Rights Division said the DOJ’s suit will specifically challenge provisions of the law that she said aim to reduce access to absentee voting for Black voters that the department alleges will make it more likely they will have to stand in longer lines than white voters.

This frivolous lawsuit aims to stop conservative states from enacting their own agendas

For states that are conservative, but cash-strapped, this lawsuit tries to stop them from enacting their own attempts to stop cheating at the ballot box. It seems that the Democrats have determined that they have the better chance of winning when they have a chance to cheat. Therefore, Garland, once a Supreme Court nominee, seeks to muddy the waters of the electoral process by throwing the legal might of the federal government into courts against the states. Too bad that the court who found Texas had no standing to sue Pennsylvania for violating Pennsylvania election law now stands silent. It seems to me that the federal government has much less standing, considering the terms of the Georgia law.

 

Texas counties declare an immigration emergency

Galveston County judge calls immigration disaster, pledges millions

Galveston County Daily News reports that Galveston has declared a disaster due to drugs washing up on the beaches, increased crime, and increased strain on services.

Immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border had created a local disaster, Galveston County Judge Mark Henry declared Tuesday, while pledging millions of local dollars to countering the crisis.

Galveston and Montgomery counties border Harris County — so why no declaration from Lina Hidalgo?

Lockdown Lina kept Harris County at a COVID lockdown level of Red well after hospitalizations had dropped to a minimal level. Therefore, now that record levels of methamphetamines, heroin, and fentanyl have come across the border, why hasn’t she declared a disaster?

Since numerous shelters for illegal aliens have been established in Harris County (and some closed down), why hasn’t she declared a disaster? One would think that concern for the illegal aliens might prompt this.

Montgomery County judge signs declaration of disaster

Houston NBC affiliate KPRC reports that both Galveston and Montgomery Counties have declared an immigration disaster due to increased drug arrests, increases in other crimes, and strains on services.

HenryKeoughWhile final details have not been hashed out, Galveston and Montgomery County officials announced they will send local resources to the southern border.

If Biden were Republican, the news would focus on many things

If Biden and Harris County were Republican, the press would likely let us know that:

  1. He has caused record levels of opioids and enough fentanyl to kill multiple Northeastern cities
  2. He has been multiplying the scourge of human trafficking
  3. He has been contributing to the trend of releasing felons among us
  4. He is causing the murder of innocent Americans by these felons (in Harris County between 2020 and 2021, 121 felons in Harris County, Texas go on to murder innocent victims as of 24 June 2021)

In April, four Texas counties started the trend by declaring immigration disaster

The Center Square reported in a 30 April 2021 article that four South Texas counties declared immigration disaster.

Four Texas counties have issued disaster declarations and called on the governor for help because of escalated crime in their communities resulting from a surge in illegal immigration.

In response, Gov. Greg Abbott has asked counties and state agencies to report the financial costs to his office in an attempt to be reimbursed by the federal government for the strain being placed on law enforcement. Abbott launched Operation Lone Star last month in an effort to divert Texas DPS, Ranger, and National Guard resources to the border to reduce cartel- and other-related crimes stemming from the surge of illegal immigrants crossing the border.

Atascosa, Goliad, Kinney, and La Salle have issued disaster declarations, saying the “health, life, and property” of their residents are “under imminent threat of disaster from the human trafficking occurring on our border with Mexico.”

While three of the counties are located 40 to 200 miles north of the border, only Kinney sits on the international border and is a direct smuggling route from Del Rio to San Antonio. All counties report that their law enforcement and other county resources are inundated with cross-border crime and human smuggling on a daily basis.

Goliad County’s sheriff Roy Boyd said the county, located 200 miles north of the border, is being used as a staging point for smugglers to bring people illegally to Houston.

“What happens is they’ll bring them up from the border to somewhere in this area. They’ll drop them off at a temporary holding site and then someone from Houston comes and picks them up and then takes them to Houston, where they’re distributed across the United States,” he said.

Biden / Harris nicknames

Kamala Harris purportedly invents a nickname for Biden

With a hat tip to Wayne Dupree and OANN, it seems that Kamala Harris has been reported to have invented a nickname for the Joe Biden administration:

And now, we’re hearing from OANN reporter Jack Posobiec, that it’s gotten so bad, that Team Kamala now has a brand new nickname for Team Joe – and it’s pretty darn brutal, but really spot-on.

Here’s what Jack said: “Team Kamala has started referred to Team Biden as ‘the Titanic’ in the White House”

(Read reams more at WayneDupree.com)

The “Titanic” fits the whole administration, including Kamala

From the moment that Joe began willy-nilly deleting the policies of President Trump — no thought put into anything — no matter what the consequences, this regime was sunk. The decision of Horizontal Harris to avoid the real border (even after her appearance at El Paso over 90 days after her assignment to the Border-Czar post) augmented this sinking.

A protester gives Kamala Harris a fitting Spanish nickname

As reported by the Western Journal, a protester has emblazoned on a sign a perfect Spanish nickname for Kamala Harris.

QueMalaHarrisA sign skewering Vice President Kamala Harris’ handling of the border crisis is going viral thanks to a clever Spanish pun.

Harris visited El Paso, Texas, on Friday months after being appointed President Joe Biden’s “border czar” — but not without backlash from fed-up locals.

Several protesters held up signs that said “Que Mala Hates Mexicans” or “Que Mala Harris for Human Trafficking.”

Translated into English, “que mala” means “how bad,” a scathing and rather humorous indictment of Harris’ leadership.

Former Republican congressional candidate Irene Armendariz-Jackson was holding one of the signs and told Spanish-language news outlet El American her thoughts on Harris’ trip.

“I’m here to say, ‘Kamala, you came a little too late.’ We have had this crisis for years. We need solutions, we don’t need you parading in the Border Patrol station or acting like you care,” Armendariz-Jackson said.

“Americans matter. America matters. God bless you, America,” she added.

Big Tech sins in the spotlight

Microsoft censors LinkedIn to protect Communist China

Breitbart informs us that Microsoft has censored to protect Communist China.

Scholars on the Microsoft-owned business networking platform LinkedIn are reportedly being censored in China without being informed why.

The Wall Street Journal reports that scholars are being censored across Microsoft’s business networking and social media platform LinkedIn. The WSJ notes that Oxford University doctoral student Eyck Freymann recently received a notice from LinkedIn stating that his account had been blocked in China as the “Experience” section of his profile included “prohibited” content in the country.

It was not detailed what elements of his “Experience” section had violated Chinese law but Freymann stated that he thinks it may be due to including the words “Tiananmen Square massacre” in the entry for his two-year stint as a research assistant for a book in 2015.

The WSJ writes:

The academic is one of a spate of LinkedIn users whose profiles have been blocked in recent weeks. The Wall Street Journal identified at least 10 other individuals who had their profiles blocked or posts removed from the China version of LinkedIn since May, including researchers in Jerusalem and Tokyo, journalists, a U.S. congressional staffer and an editor based in Beijing who posted state media reports about elephants rampaging across China.

A LinkedIn spokeswoman said in a statement that while the company supports freedom of expression, offering a localized version of LinkedIn in China means adherence to censorship requirements of the Chinese government on internet platforms. The company didn’t comment on whether its actions were proactive or in response to requests from Chinese authorities.

LinkedIn made a trade off to accept Chinese censorship when it entered China in 2014 and has typically censored human-rights activists and deleted content focused on posts deemed sensitive to the Chinese government. The recent dragnet stands out for having caught several academics in its path, resulting in the deletion of entire profiles instead of individual posts.

In March, China’s internet regulator summoned LinkedIn officials to better regulate its content, according to WSJ sources. LinkedIn was given 30 days to clean up the content and promised to better regulate its site going forward.

So, just as Joe cowered to Xi, Google forces LinkedIn to cower to Xi

Ok, so the proof of Joe cowering to Xi remains anecdotal. Still, it can’t be denied that Biden gave a blind eye to the torture and other oppression in China.

Likewise, it cannot be denied that there are numerous and sometimes nefarious links between foreign interests (especially Chinese businesses) and the Biden family.

Two of five House Big Tech Anti-Trust bills pass out of committee

Clarion News tells us that two of the five anti-trust bills directed against Big Tech have advanced out of committee.

The American Choice and Innovation Online Act and the Augmenting Compatibility and Competition by Enabling Service Switching (ACCESS) Act passed the committee stage yesterday night, with a vote of 24 to 20 in the House Judiciary Committee. The Big Tech bills are now cleared to proceed to a floor vote.

The bills are part of a major package of antitrust legislation aimed at curbing the power of the Big Tech companies. According to the letter of the laws, they tightly restrict large tech companies from discriminating against their competitors.

The American Choice And Innovation Online Act would prohibit the largest of tech companies from behavior that “excludes or disadvantages the products, services, or lines of business of another business user relative to the covered platform operator’s own products, services, or lines of business.” For example, this might mean that Google would not be able to exclude competitors to YouTube from its app store or search results.

The ACCESS Act aims to ensure user control of data, mandating that the largest tech companies allow users to access their data in a “structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.” It also forces the largest tech companies to keep their application programming interfaces, or APIs, open to competitors.

They also grant a great deal of enforcement power to the federal government, some of whom, like associate attorney general Vanita Gupta, have made no secret of their belief that tech platforms should be penalized for carrying “misinformation.”

Big Media lobbyists have tried to tie a separate bill, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act, to bipartisan antitrust efforts. The JCPA, condemned by Reps. Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, and others, would grant cartel power to big media companies that seek to collectively bargain with tech companies, giving them a much stronger bargaining position and an advantage over independent competitors.

The JCPA would give the force of law to an existing trend that emerged over the past five years, which has seen big media companies pressure Silicon Valley tech giants for prioritization in their algorithms and other special favors that give them an advantage over independent news content producers.

Twitter “mistakenly” censors news site for report on 13-year-old dying days after COVID vaccine

Breitbart reports that Twitter has censored a conservative news site for a story that counters the COVID vaccination narrative.

TwitterCEOJackDorseyTwitter locked the account of the National File, a national populist news website, for reporting on a tweet from Tami Burages, a woman who says her 13-year old nephew died three days after receiving a second dose of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine. Twitter later said the account had been locked in error and reinstated it.

According to a Twitter spokesman, the platform took enforcement action on the National File’s account in error. That action has been reversed and the account has been reinstated.

The National File’s report was about Twitter user Tami Burages, who said her teenage nephew had died shortly after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

“Our family is devastated,” said Burages “I struggled with putting this out on twitter. I am pro-vaccine. We vaccinated my own 14-year-old son as soon as it was available. I know it is *mostly safe*. But Jacob is dead now.”

“I do believe that the vaccine is saving millions of lives,” continued Burages subsequent tweets. “But should any innocent child be a sacrificial lamb in this endeavor? There are moral, ethical and health questions that need to be answered. If Jacob had not received the 2nd shot, we believe he would be alive today.”

Saying parents should be “warned of the risk,” Burages called on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to investigate.

Tom Pappert, editor-in-chief of the National File, condemned Twitter for censoring his website’s reporting.

“Twitter’s censorship here is as repugnant as it is ridiculous,” said Pappert. “National File does not publish medical misinformation. We published a report containing direct quotes from a woman who – using Twitter – expressed concern about the death of her 13-year-old nephew, Jacob Clynick, which occurred after he received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.”

“It appears Twitter is attempting to censor news outlets for the crime of reporting on the concerns of a recently bereaved family member,” Pappert said.

Google responds to claims it secretly installed COVID-19 tracking app on users’ phones

The Epoch Times tells us of denials by Google that it installed a COVID-19 tracking app on phones without warning or consent.

COVIDA number of Android phone users over the past weekend reported that a COVID-19 notifications system was automatically installed on their phones without warning or consent.

Google, in a statement to several news outlets, did not confirm or deny whether the “automatically distributed” system was installed without users’ consent, while noting that “COVID-19 Exposure Notifications are enabled only if a user proactively turns it on.”

“We have been working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to allow users to activate the Exposure Notifications System directly from their Android phone settings,” the tech giant said in a statement. “This functionality is built into the device settings and is automatically distributed by the Google Play Store, so users don’t have to download a separate app. COVID-19 Exposure Notifications are enabled only if a user proactively turns it on. Users decide whether to enable this functionality and whether to share information through the system to help warn others of possible exposure.”

It came after numerous users in Massachusetts claimed on RedditHacker News, and in Google’s app reviews that the service was installed without them knowing.

In a 1-star review, one user wrote on Google Play that they “absolutely did not install this on my phone” and said it was “silently installed without any notification.”

Exposure Notifications “doesn’t have an app icon … you have to go through settings and view all apps,” according to the user. “This is a huge privacy and security overstep by [Gov. Charlie Baker] & Google.”

Inventor of the mRNA vaccines questions the efficacy of the vaccines and gets banned by YouTube

The Daily Mail reports that the inventor of mRNA vaccines has been banned by YouTube due to his having questioned the efficacy of the vaccines.

The inventor of mRNA vaccines said ‘the government is not being transparent about the risks’ of the COVID-19 vaccine after YouTube deleted a video where he discussed potential risks for young adults and teens. 

Dr. Robert Malone, who invented the mRNA technology that’s now being used in the COVID-19 vaccine, told Fox’s Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night that there isn’t enough data about the risks for these age groups and doesn’t believe they should be forced to get vaccinated.

‘I don’t think the benefits outweigh the risks in that cohort,’ said Malone, referring to people in the 18 to 22 age bracket, ‘but unfortunately the risk-benefit analysis is not being done.’

‘My concern is I know there are risks but we don’t have access to the data,’ Malone said. ‘And so, I am of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccines or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines.’

A Minnesota 9-year-old girl speaks out against political signs in school

The Epoch Times provides us with the words of a 9-year-old girl who stood up against adults who changed the rules mid-stream.

NovaleeA 9-year-old girl from Minnesota has gone viral online after confronting her local school board, which she said had contradicted its own “no politics” policy by displaying a Black Lives Matter (BLM) poster in a classroom.

The girl, who only identified herself as “Novalee,” is a student at an elementary school in Lakeview Area Schools, which serves the Dakota and Scott Counties in the southern suburbs of Minneapolis. She gained popularity on social media because of a video in which she called on the school district to remove the BLM posters.

Speaking at a June 8 board meeting, the student said she saw posters of BLM and Amanda Gorman on her teacher’s wall at the school. “I was so mad. I was told two weeks ago at this very meeting spot: no politics in school,” she told the board members. “I believed what you said at this meeting.”

The student said she asked her principal to take down the posters, citing a school board policy prohibiting displays of political messages including Black Lives Matter. The principal allegedly refused to remove the posters, and told her that the school board members were the ones who made them.

“I was stunned. When I was here two weeks ago you told us to report any BLM in our schools,” she recalled. “Apparently you know they are in our schools because you made the signs.”

“Doesn’t matter what color you make the posters and the fonts you use, we all understand the meaning. It is a political message about getting rid of police officers, rioting, burning buildings down while king Governor [Tim] Waltz just sits on his throne and watches,” the girl added. “Changing the colors or the fonts of posters does not change the meaning. I am nine years old and I know that. You expect me to believe that you did not know what you were doing by making these posters? Come on people!”

She then clarified that she judges people by the way they treat her rather than their race, but the school board appeared to be encouraging people to focus on the color of their skin.

“You have lied to me and I am very disappointed in all of you. You cannot even follow your own rules,” the girl concluded. “Get the posters out of our schools. Courage is contagious so be courageous.”

If there are two things third-graders understand, those things would be fairness and a sense of keeping promises.

Having taught third-grade boys’ Sunday School for years, I can tell you that third graders have a keen sense of fairness and a strong memory of things promised. This video clip bears this out.

Therefore, you can expect that any instance of this happening across our nation at least has caused kids to think. So, this forcing of liberal ideology via posters and the like may cause the birth of a new generation of conservatives.

15-year-old high school student points out the failings of CRT

The Western Journal reports on a high-school boy who stood against the tenets of critical race theory.

BradTaylorYou probably haven’t heard of Brad Taylor before. My guess is that this might not be the last time you hear his name.

The 15-year-old Taylor is — or rather, was — a student at Rosemount High School in Rosemount, Minnesota. He’s decided to leave the district, telling the Minnesota-centric conservative news outlet Alpha News that “it wasn’t a healthy environment for any student to be in” due to the encroachment of critical race theory.

However, before he left, he decided to give the school board in Minnesota Independent School District 196 a piece of his mind. It’s now going viral after being posted to YouTube by the Daily Caller, with over 500,000 views as of Tuesday morning. That’s more than 125,000 per day since it was posted Friday.

In the speech, Taylor criticized the school for promoting a “leftist agenda in class” and said the district’s “schools are quickly becoming a place where promoting activism is actually more important than promoting education.”

Taylor began by going back to the fall, his first day of his freshman year at Rosemount High School, and recounting how “the principal came out and gave us a heartfelt speech about equality and standing together.”

The principal, he said, listed various races while “expressing how much they matter and how important they are.”

“But never once did he mention an identity that reflects me or half the kids that were in the class.”

There was a bit of what the kids might like to characterize as a “sick burn” next — with Taylor noting to the board members, “I know you haven’t been to school in a while and I know most of you don’t have any kids left in the school district.” Apparently, those who make the rules in District 196 don’t necessarily have any skin in the game and, one might guess, are more motivated by political than parental concerns.

“You must admit how uncomfortable it will be to be characterized just by your skin color on the first day of school and be thought that you were wrong just because of your skin color,” Taylor continued. “I’ll never forget the look one of my friends gave me from across the room as we were sitting there listening to this blatant bias being expressed in the so-called equity statement by the leader of our school.

“To be clear, I don’t need you to tell me that I matter, but hearing the condolences given to other races and leaving just one race out, inevitably you’ll start to feel like you’ve done something wrong,” he added. “In our principal’s attempt to unify us, he instead created unwarranted boundaries and barriers between his students, pitting us against each other based on characteristics that we can’t control.”

In his speech, Taylor told the board he didn’t just hear from other students who felt pressured to conform to a certain viewpoint in order to secure a good grade. He said he was also approached by teachers who told him they agreed with his views but couldn’t express that because they feared retaliation from the district.

Here, a high-school freshman discerns the divisions created by Marxism.

As illustrated by Mr. Taylor, even the young and uninitiated can see that Marxism divides (rather than unites). Therefore, if we are to stand as a nation, we need to avoid the division of Marxism.

Eighth-grade girl blasts school board for policy that would allow “boys into girls’ locker rooms”

Fox News informs us of a 14-year-old girl’s fight in Loudoun County, Virginia, to protect other girls from the intrusion of boys into the showers and dressing areas.

A 14-year-old in Virginia is speaking out about what she says is a sexist move by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) to allow “boys into girls’ locker rooms.”

The policy followed a previous one, 1040, that committed the county to providing an equitable, safe and inclusive working environment regardless of “sexual orientation, gender identity” and other individual characteristics. The more recent proposed policy – 8350 – states in a draft that “students should be allowed to use the facility that corresponds to their gender identity.”

At Tuesday’s school board meeting, Jolene Grover, who was wearing a shirt that read “Woman is female” argued: “Two years ago, I was told policy 1040 was just an umbrella philosophy and you weren’t going to allow boys into the girls’ locker rooms. But here you are doing just that.”

Grover is an eighth grader whose mom pulled her out of an LCPS school last year after seeing various controversial policies emerging. She is currently homeschooled.

“Everyone knows what a boy is – even you,” she added, looking up at the board members. “Your proposed policies are dangerous and rooted in sexism. When woke kids ask me if I was a lesbian or a trans boy because I cut my hair short, it should tell you these modern identities are superficial.”

In an interview with Fox News Thursday, Grover said she worried that LCPS’ new rule would lead to girls being harassed and assaulted.

During her speech, she claimed that her guidance counselor responded to her concerns about privacy and safety by noting that the bathrooms had stalls. Fox News hasn’t confirmed this and LCPS declined to comment on Grover’s speech.

“Now, boys are reading erotica in the classroom next to girls,” she added during Tuesday’s speech, “and you want to give them access to girls’ locker rooms and you want to force girls to call those boys ‘she.'”

“You do this in the name of inclusivity while ignoring the girls who will pay the price. Your policies choose boys’ wants over girls’ needs.”

Grover’s comments were just one of many related to gender as participants responded to the ongoing controversy surrounding Tanner Cross. Cross was suspended last month after giving a now-viral speech in which he opposed the district’s proposed policies on gender.

He told the school board he wouldn’t “affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa because it’s against my religion. It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God.”

Just days after that speech, Cross was told in a letter not to come on the school’s premises. The letter vaguely stated the school district was investigating “allegations that you engaged in conduct that has had a disruptive impact on the operations” of his school. A judge ordered LCPS on Tuesday to reinstate Cross, arguing it violated his right to free speech.

Cross had referred to draft policy 8040, which required Loudoun staff to use preferred pronouns.

“LCPS staff shall allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the name and gender recorded in the student’s permanent educational record,” it read.

“School staff shall, at the request of a student or parent/legal guardian, when using a name or pronoun to address the student, use the name and pronoun that correspond to their gender identity. The use of gender-neutral pronouns are appropriate. Inadvertent slips in the use of names or pronouns may occur; however, staff or students who intentionally and persistently refuse to respect a student’s gender identity by using the wrong name and gender pronoun are in violation of this policy.”

Others at the meeting suggested LCPS’ policies were righteous pursuits or love and inclusion.

Wearing a rainbow pin and mask, state Sen. Jennifer Boysko told the board: “I want to thank you for your commitment to equality and making sure every child feels loved and valued.” Another remote speaker argued policies like 8040 weren’t new and would make “trans and gender-expansive kids feel a little more welcome.” 

Some women and girls, though, have started questioning the cost of such policies. 

The issue has become especially pertinent in women’s athletics. Fox News reported last week on how five-time national track champion Shannon Arena argued “transgender athletes will diminish opportunities for biological women.”

Houston records over 100 more homicides compared to this date in 2019

Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reports that over a 100 more murders have been committed in 2021 by felons released by social justice judges and the district attorney than were committed in 2019.

Houston seems to be headed down a troubling path as new data shows a significant increase in homicides this year.

On the 172nd day of 2021, June 21, Houston recorded 222 total homicides, according to crime data from the Houston Police Department.

That’s 66 more homicides than the 156 that were recorded in the city on this day last year.

On this day in 2019, 116 homicides had been recorded, according to HPD, more than 100 less than where we stand in present day.

In total, HPD is reporting a 42% increase in homicides this year, with a 91% increase from two years ago.

Houston Police Chief Troy Finner is expected to speak at a press conference this afternoon, where ABC13 hopes to receive more data when it comes to other violent crimes like road rage and carjackings.

The troubling data comes the morning after law enforcement responded to three separate shootings across Harris County that all had one thing in common: teenagers.

Oddly, the news organization does not draw the line to the social justice judges and District Attorney releasing felons

In their video, they talk about the common teenage conflicts In other broadcasts, they wonder whether there are factors (policing or COVID) that drive the current violent trends in Houston. However, they never ask whether it is the social justice judges and the District Attorney (all Democrat) who have been releasing felons on low or no-bond bails drive the current murder rate. They don’t ask if giving felons a “get out of jail free card” might not be the best arrangement for the community.

Justice system has “run amuk,” allowing repeat felons out on bond who then commit even more crimes

Law Enforcement Today reports on the revolving door situation where felons get released on low or no-bond bails.

Harris County’s criminal justice system has “run amuck,” according to an attorney specializing in bail law, and Crime Stoppers seems to agree.

Attorney Ken. W. Good said:

“In Harris County, we’ve set up a system that allows the criminals to take advantage of the criminal justice system.

“The criminal justice system is running amuck. We have chaos everywhere.”

According to a report by Fox 26 Houston News, several Harris County Criminal Court Judges are allowing criminals to be freed repeatedly, even if they are charged with a felony while out on multiple felony and personal recognizance bonds.

Andy Kahan with Crime Stoppers said that even when criminals fail to show up for court, the judges are giving them at least three chances before issuing an arrest warrant:

“I’ve heard of three strikes you’re out in baseball, but I’ve not heard of we will give you three chances to appear in court, and then maybe we will finally figure out you’re just not going to show up.

“That appears to be what is happening now.”

Kahan said that he has repeatedly tried to find out how many defendants have gone from being free on multiple felony and personal recognizance bonds to wanted fugitives:

“I have no idea, nobody does. That’s troubling and that’s disturbing to me that we don’t know.”

The prisoners that have been repeatedly released include at least two who were then arrested for shooting at police.

Moises Martinez, 37, was arrested on January 26 following a four-hour manhunt in north Harris County. Martinez pulled a firearm and began shooting at two deputies responding to a suspicious person call.

Murder in Houston has skyrocketed to 225 killed as of 22 June 2021

According to stats kept by CrimeStoppers Victims’ Advocate Andy Kahan and KSEV radio personality Chris Blaney, 225 people have been killed this year.

By the way, Texas was set to pass a law making low-bond and no-bond bails illegal for judges to apply to felons. However, when the Democrats walked out, that bill was left hanging.

Nebraska governor sending state troopers to southern border to meet Abbott request

The Washington Examiner reports in a 21 June 2021 article that Nebraska governor Pete Ricketts has sent state troopers to Texas to help with the border issues.

NebraskaGovNebraska will send state troopers down to the United States-Mexico border to help law enforcement in Texas respond to high illegal immigration levels, the governor announced this weekend.

“Nebraska is stepping up to help Texas respond to the ongoing crisis on their border with Mexico,” Gov. Pete Ricketts said in a statement. “The disastrous policies of the Biden-Harris Administration created an immigration crisis on the border. While the federal government has fallen short in its response, Nebraska is happy to step up to provide assistance to Texas as they work to protect their communities and keep people safe.”

More than two dozen Nebraska State Patrol officers will travel approximately 900 miles south to Del Rio, Texas, later this month to assist Texas Department of Public Safety officers for an estimated 16 days, Ricketts said.

The move comes a little more than a week after Republican Govs. Greg Abbott of Texas and Doug Ducey of Arizona asked the other 48 governors to consider sending their police to help overwhelmed local and federal departments.

“Given the staggering number of violations now occurring in Texas and Arizona, additional manpower is needed from any state that can spare it. With your help, we can apprehend more of these perpetrators of state and federal crimes, before they can cause problems in your state,” the governors wrote in a letter released earlier this month, noting the threats posed by drug smugglers and illegal immigrants with criminal histories.

Abbott and Ducey said out-of-state law enforcement officers, as well as their own, will have broader policing authorities and be able to arrest noncitizens who come across the border on trespassing charges and human smuggling charges. Normally, only federal authorities such as the Border Patrol can arrest people for immigration offenses, but the two governors expanded arrest authorities by declaring a disaster and emergency.

Governor Ron DeSantis pledges border help for Texas and Arizona: “Florida has your back”

The Washington Times pointed out in a 16 June 2021 article how Governor DeSantis said he would send help to Texas and Arizona to help with the border crisis.

FloridaGovFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis castigated the Biden administration for creating “a disaster and an emergency” at the nation’s border with Mexico and said Wednesday that he would send law enforcement to Texas and Arizona, whose Republican governors have appealed to other states for help.

DeSantis became the first governor to heed the call from his fellow Republicans, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, to send law officers to the border to help with interdiction efforts to capture those entering the country illegally — including those working for cartels trafficking illicit drugs to all corners of the country.

“America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American,” DeSantis said in a statement. “The Biden Administration ended policies implemented by President Trump that were curbing illegal immigration, securing our border, and keeping Americans safe.”

Last week, Abbott and Ducey issued a letter seeking help from their fellow governors, claiming that the administration of President Joe Biden “has proven unwilling or unable” to secure the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Border states like Texas and Arizona are ‘ground zero’ for this crisis and bear a disproportionate share of those burdens,” their letter said, adding that “additional manpower is needed from any state that can spare it.”

A spokesperson for U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the agency would continue to “leverage our longstanding relationships with state and local enforcement,” but deferred to state officials “to speak to any steps they are taking to increase an enforcement posture.”

Republicans have long made border security an issue and had eagerly supported Trump’s program to build walls along the nearly 2000-mile (3,220-kilometer) border between the United States and Mexico. The Biden administration has since suspended the project.

“I’m proud to announce today that the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back,” DeSantis said.

But the Florida governor was scant on details, including when the personnel will head to the border – or how many. He said law officers would be sent as part of preexisting mutual aid agreements with other states, which are usually activated in times of emergencies.

DeSantis vowed to send personnel from the Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Sheriff’s offices in at least nine Florida counties also are adding to the state’s contingent of law officers. He also mentioned other support, but his office could not immediately provide details.

Last Friday, Abbott announced he would build new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border and launch an aggressive campaign to arrest migrants.

Biden halts arms shipments to Ukraine prior to meeting with Putin

Lethal aid stopped for Ukraine

Breitbart reported in an 18 June 2021 article that Joe Biden cut off lethal aid to Ukraine prior to his meeting with Russian president Putin.

Biden-Makes-Silly-Face-While-Shaking-Hands-with-PutinPresident Joe Biden’s White House halted a proposed package of lethal aid to Ukraine, according to a Politico report.

State Department officials and the Pentagon worked to develop the aid proposal before the White House National Security Council put it on hold ahead of Biden’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The package’s development came in response to Russia’s massive military buildup near the Ukrainian border earlier in 2020, and would have been worth up to $100 million, according to Politico.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday, citing “people familiar with the decision,” that the Biden administration tabled the aid package after Russia said in April they would reduce the number of troops on the border.

Biden officials estimated in May that 80,000 Russian troops remain on the border of Ukraine, the New York Times noted.

Biden began his presidency with a series of high-stakes diplomatic signals to Russia and conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

China’s top spy catcher defects and hands over terabytes of information on Joe and Hunter Biden

The Western Journal reports in a 20 June 2021 article that China’s top spy catcher both defected and released terabytes of information, which may create problems for Joe Biden.

In early June, RedState editor Jennifer Van Laar broke an exclusive story: Sources within the intelligence community had confirmed to the outlet that a high-ranking official from the Chinese Communist Party had defected to the United States in February and has been quietly working with the Defense Intelligence Agency.

However, the DIA did not disclose the defector’s existence to any individuals outside of its Clandestine Service network until recently, the sources alleged, over concerns that “Chinese spies or sources” may have infiltrated other U.S. intelligence agencies, including as the FBI or the CIA,

According to the RedState report, the sources said “the defector has direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs.”

They reportedly told Redstate that the individual had “provided an extensive, technically detailed debrief to US officials” and that DIA officials consider the information “legitimate.”

Additionally, RedState reported that “U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) personnel detailed to DIA have corroborated very technical details of information provided by the defector.”

This intelligence corroborated earlier reports from journalist Adam Housley.



These reports coincided roughly with the media’s sudden acceptance of the possibility that the coronavirus pandemic originated with Chinese scientists after the idea had been deemed a far-right conspiracy theory for over a year.

One week after the original RedState report, Van Laar published new report that went much further regarding the origin of the coronavirus, technically known as SARS-CoV-2.

According to RedState’s sources, the defector “provided data proving that SARS-CoV-2 was manmade and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in addition to evidence confirming that the People’s Liberation Army managed the Wuhan program.”

Van Laar pointed out another interesting detail. Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist and former postdoctoral fellow at the University of Hong Kong, had provided the FBI with this evidence over a year ago.

According to RedState: “Technical details provided by the defector … were given to scientists (who were not told how that information was given to the government), who then re-analyzed data from published sources in conjunction with the new data and concluded that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was engineered. And, the defector was able to confirm numerous non-public details Yan provided the US government.”

Dr. Yan may sound familiar because her September interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson caused quite a stir. Yan told Carlson: “This virus, COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 virus, actually is not from nature. It is a man-made virus created in the lab. … I can present solid scientific evidence to our audience that this virus, COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 virus, actually is not from nature.” (I posted about this interview here.)

She said that, previously, the bat coronavirus could not affect people, but after the artificial modifications, it became a very harmful virus.

Carlson said, “You’re saying that the Chinese government manufactured this virus, if I’m hearing you correctly?”

“Yes, exactly …,” Yan said.

Russia fetes, Ukraine frets over Biden pipeline ploy

The Washington Times reported in a 20 May 2021 article how Russians and Ukrainians received the news of Biden removing sanctions from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Top Russian officials said the relatively amicable talks this week between the U.S. and Russian top diplomats and the Biden administration’s decision not to try to block a controversial Russia-German energy pipeline are hopeful signs that bilateral ties may improve soon.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also expressed satisfaction that a potential WashingtonBerlin flash point had been finessed, while the president of Ukraine voiced open fears his country would be sidelined by the new Nord Stream 2 pipeline that bypasses his country to ship natural gas directly from Russia to Germany and other Western European markets.

“I’ll be frank with you, I’m scared by this situation,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told reporters in Kyiv on Thursday.

President Biden continued to take bipartisan flak from Congress over his decision to waive sanctions on the main German contractor building the nearly complete undersea pipeline, a waiver that effectively ends efforts by both the Trump and Biden administrations to halt the project. U.S. officials privately said it appeared there was little realistic chance of stopping the project and it risked a major rift with the German government.

“Let me get this straight,” said Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Thursday. “President Biden is shutting down pipelines in the United States, like Keystone XL, while giving strongman [Russian President Vladimir Putin] a free pass at Nord Stream 2, a pipeline that Putin will use to pressure our allies in Europe.”

“This is exactly backward,” added Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, said Wednesday evening on Fox News, noting Russian hackers have just been implicated in the shutdown of a major East Coast U.S. gas pipeline in a ransomware case. “Four months into [his term], Joe Biden is crawling in bed with Putin and Russia and the enemies of America.”

The administration Thursday agreed to provide a Capitol Hill briefing to lawmakers on Monday on why Mr. Biden decided in the end to waive the most critical sanctions in the dispute, citing national security concerns. A group of GOP senators were reportedly preparing legislation to try to force Mr. Biden to impose sanctions on the German company Nord Stream AG and its senior officers.

But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow on Thursday the Nord Stream 2 decision was “definitely a positive signal.”

And Konstantin Kosachev, deputy speaker of the Russian Federation Council, the legislature’s upper chamber, praised the tone of the first meeting Wednesday of Secretary of State Antony Blinken and longtime Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of a summit on the Arctic in Reykjavik, Iceland.

“I liked the cautious optimism of our foreign minister after the talks,” Mr. Kosachev told the TASS news agency. “Given that traditionally [Mr. Lavrov] provides a realistic evaluation, this is a rather good sign.”

Mr. Zelenskyy, locked in a civil war with Russian-backed separatists in his country’s eastern half, had strongly opposed the pipeline as it threatened to undercut both Ukraine and Poland and critical transshipment routes for Russian oil and gas to the West.

“It would be a loss for the United States, and I believe it would be President Biden’s personal loss,” Mr. Zelenskyy said in comments reported by The Associated Press. “It would mark a serious geopolitical victory for the Russian Federation and a new redistribution of spheres of influence.”

Mr. Kosachev said that, from the Russian perspective, even though the two-hour Blinken-Lavrov meeting dealt with difficult matters, it also touched on issues where Moscow and Washington can work together, including climate change, the future of Afghanistan and the fight against the global pandemic.

Destroying the Sixth Amendment – a guarantee of a speedy and public trial

Fifty service members accused of crimes associated with 6 January riots

American Military News reports that 50 service members remain jailed on charges related to the 6 January riot (despite the 6th Amendment guarantee of a “speedy and public trial”).

At least 50 military service members have been charged with taking part in the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, including members of radical groups, CNN reported Tuesday.

Most of the dozens of those with military ties who have been arrested on various charges including assaulting police officers are veterans.

But some were active-duty members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

Nearly 500 people in all have been arrested around the country for their roles in the attack on the Capitol, which came after former President Donald Trump spoke to thousands of his followers.

The FBI and Department of Justice prosecutors have been poring over videos of the storming and even social media feeds to identify and track down protesters, who were allowed to leave the Capitol without being arrested.

Attorney General Garland tries to stick his nose into Arizona voting

The New American informs us of the conflicting reports concerning the 2020 election as the audit seems ready to come to a close.

ArizonaAuditConflicting reports are swirling around the historic Arizona Maricopa County election audit, which is nearing its completion. The full-hand recount of roughly 2.1 million certified ballots cast in the state’s largest county during the 2020 presidential and U.S. Senate elections is on track to finish by the end of June. Counters have reportedly recorded all the regular ballots cast, with only Braille, overseas military, and duplicated ballots left to tally.

As of Sunday, Republican lawmakers from 13 states — among them Washington, Georgia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Michigan — have toured Phoenix’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where the forensic audit is taking place, to get a sense of how they might conduct similar audits in their jurisdictions.

Arizona GOP chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward tweeted over the weekend that “#AmericasAudit is soon to be #AmericasAudits! Arizona is leading the way to #ElectionIntegrity in America.”

The battleground states of Pennsylvania and Georgia could start their own audits as early as next month, reported the Gateway Pundit.

“In Georgia, there will be a court hearing next Monday for Fulton County’s ballots. An audit of Fulton County absentee ballots could start within 2 or 3 weeks after,” Georgia elections expert Garland Favorito told the outlet. As long as there is no more delay in the courts.

Yet on Friday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland seemed to rebuke the ongoing effort in Arizona to ensure election integrity, commenting during a speech at the Justice Department that the Department of Justice “will apply scrutiny to post-election audits to ensure they abide by federal statutory rights and requirements to protect election records and avoid intimidation of voters.”

Garland further promised federal “guidance explaining the civil and criminal statutes that apply to post-election audits,” remarks that sparked an acerbic response from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who wrote a caustic letter to Garland, effectively telling him to stay out of the state’s way.

In the letter, Brnovich accused Garland of “display[ing] an alarming disdain for state sovereignty as defined under the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution and the election provisions in Articles I and II.”

Brnovich continued, “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit reassure Arizonians of the accuracy of our elections. We stand ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.”

In a sharp conclusion, Brnovich stated that “Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer state’s sovereignty.”

White, Midwestern farmers sue seeking government loan forgiveness

The Public Broadcasting System pointed out in a 29 April 2021 article how White farmers had to sue to be equally represented by Biden’s administration.

A group of Midwestern farmers sued the federal government Thursday alleging they can’t participate in a COVID-19 loan forgiveness program because they’re white.

The group of plaintiffs includes farmers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Ohio. According to the lawsuit, the Biden administration’s COVID-19 stimulus plan provides $4 billion to forgive loans for socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers who are Black, American Indian, Hispanic, Alaskan native, Asian American or Pacific Islander.

White farmers aren’t eligible, amounting to a violation of the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights, the lawsuit contends.

“Were plaintiffs eligible for the loan forgiveness benefit, they would have the opportunity to make additional investments in their property, expand their farms, purchase equipment and supplies, and otherwise support their families and local communities,” the lawsuit said. “Because plaintiffs are ineligible to even apply for the program solely due to their race, they have been denied the equal protection of the law and therefore suffered harm.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a statement saying the department was reviewing the lawsuit with the U.S. Department of Justice, but the agency plans to continue to offer loan forgiveness to “socially disadvantaged” farmers.

Attorneys for the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty filed the action on the white farmers’ behalf in federal court in Green Bay.

Garland further promised federal “guidance explaining the civil and criminal statutes that apply to post-election audits,” remarks that sparked an acerbic response from Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who wrote a caustic letter to Garland, effectively telling him to stay out of the state’s way.

In the letter, Brnovich accused Garland of “display[ing] an alarming disdain for state sovereignty as defined under the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution and the election provisions in Articles I and II.”

Brnovich continued, “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit reassure Arizonians of the accuracy of our elections. We stand ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.”

In a sharp conclusion, Brnovich stated that “Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer state’s sovereignty.”

Georgia election official admits chain of custody documents are missing for 2020 election absentee ballots

The Western Journal reports that a Fulton County, Georgia official has admitted that chain of custody documents do not exist for a number of 2020 election absentee ballots.

In the months following the Nov. 3 presidential election, Fulton County, Georgia, has remained at the center of talks regarding potential voter fraud.

Voters were reminded of that controversy on Wednesday when a Fulton County election official reportedly admitted that chain of custody documents for absentee ballots placed into drop boxes had been lost.

In other words, in the aftermath of one of the most controversial elections in U.S. history — in one of the most contested counties of that election — it appears that officials have lost important documents showing how thousands of ballots got from point A to point B.

Speaking with The Georgia Star News, the election official admitted that “a few forms are missing” and that “some procedural paperwork may have been misplaced.”

Due to an Open Records Request, Fulton County was required to produce roughly 1,565 absentee ballot transfer forms for ballots deposited into drop boxes, but the county failed to produce as many as 385 of those forms, according to The Star News.

Reportedly, the total number of absentee ballots whose chain of custody documents were included among the 385 missing forms was 18,901, which is over 6,000 votes more than the 11,779 vote margin of Joe Biden’s victory in the state, according to the official count from NBC News.

On Monday, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that, because of the election official’s recent admission, this issue “will be investigated thoroughly.”

Critical Race Theory gets criticized by credible critics

Columbia University graduate who fled North Korea draws connections between CRT and Marxist life

The Epoch Times reports on a woman who fled communism only to be inflicted with the same ideology at college in the United States.

A North Korean defector who graduated from New York’s Columbia University drew an alarming similarity between what is being taught on the American campus and the propaganda of the Kim regime.

In 2007, 13-year-old Yeonmi Park and her mother fled across the border to China, where they were sold into slavery by sex traffickers. Two years later, with the help of Christian missionaries, they escaped to Mongolia across the Gobi desert before settling in South Korea.

Park was transferred to Columbia from a South Korean university in 2016. She said she was struck by the Ivy League school’s anti-West and anti-American sentiment, which brought back memories of her childhood under the communist, totalitarian regime.

“At Columbia University, literally every professor was saying the problems that we have in today’s world is because of white men [and] how they colonized Africa [and] Asia, that’s how they mess up everything and they are the ones who needs [sic] to be blamed,” Yeonmi told Fox News.

“And I couldn’t believe it,” she continued. “Am I sitting in North Korea’s classroom or in America’s classroom? I couldn’t believe why people were hating their own people that much.”

Park told host Sean Hannity that she viewed the United States as a nation of free thought and free speech, only to find out she had to censor herself on an American campus.

We should not be surprised that Democrats have provided a template for racial discrimination in CRT

Democrats were the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation. Go look at the laws crafted by Joe Biden in the mid-70’s. These laws were crafted to protect White communities.

Now that Democrats have determined to give the nation a socialist turn, their focus on pitting groups against each other works to distract us from their other actions (taxing, controlling, etc._).

Virginia mother who endured Maoist China blasts school board’s critical race theory initiative

In a 10 June 2021 Washington Examiner article, we see how a woman who survived Mao’s “cultural revolution” spoke out against a school board’s critical race theory initiative.

A mother in Virginia who survived Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution in China before immigrating to the United States slammed a local school board during a public meeting on Tuesday over its backing of critical race theory.

The theory, which claims “racism is a normal and ordinary part of our society, not an aberration,” according to a seminar developed by Fordham Law School’s Center on Race, Law, and Justice, has gained traction in public school curricula since the summer of unrest following the death of George Floyd in May last year.

“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet told the Loudoun County School Board. “You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.”

The mother compared the theory to a form of “neo-racism,” adding, “This is indeed [the] American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution,” a purge led by Mao that left 500,000 to 20 million people dead from 1966 to 1976. The vast discrepancy in fatalities is due to the lack of historical record surrounding the revolution.

Black mother compares critical race theory in schools to KKK tactics

The Washington Examiner reports through a 13 May 2021 article on a Black mother who spoke out against CRT.

A Black mother took aim at critical race theory during a local school board meeting, comparing the education to tactics used by Nazi Germany and the Ku Klux Klan.

“Critical race theory is not an honest dialogue, it is a tactic that was used by Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan on slavery very many years ago to dumb down my ancestors so we could not think for ourselves,” Shawntel Cooper said at the Loudoun County School Board meeting Tuesday. “Critical race theory is racist, it is abusive, it discriminates against one’s color. … You can not tell me what is or is not racist.”

The fiery rebuke came as parents at the district, one of the richest in the nation, have recently begun fighting back against plans to adopt a “culturally responsive” curriculum framework that called on the district to dismantle “white supremacy.”

Cooper was not the only parent to speak out at the meeting, with other parents voicing concerns about the district’s Diverse Book Collection, which is supposed to be an initiative to expose students to authors of different races, gender identities, and sexual orientations.

One group of parents read aloud passages from Monday’s Not Coming, a sexually explicit book that at one point described a girl being assaulted. The parents argued that if reading the passage of the book made the school board uncomfortable, it wasn’t appropriate for students.

“If this is inappropriate for me to read to you, this is inappropriate for our children,” one parent said. “Get these dirty books out of our schools.”

Other books parents complained about included My Princess Boy, which tells the story of a young boy who likes wearing dresses and playing with girls’ toys that was included in the kindergarten curriculum. A junior in high school, meanwhile, could choose to read Whatever: Or How Junior Year Became Totally F$@cked, the story of a teenage boy who faces internal crisis after drunkenly kissing another male.

“Schools should not be imparting their belief structure on our children. That should be left to the parents to share their values, morals, and ethics in a family setting,” one parent said. “That is the most important. Those should be for the parents to impart to their children, not the school.”

Never mind this rhetoric, Biden pretends there should be no difference between the U.S. and Russia

Biden: Putin is right that US-Russian relations are at the “lowest point in recent years”

The Epoch Times reports on the words of Joe Biden as Biden exits the G-7 meeting for a meeting with Putin.

US-POLITICS-BIDEN-ECONOMY-JOBSPresident Joe Biden said he agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s assessment that U.S.-Russia relations are at a low point.

“Let me make it clear I think he’s right it’s a low point, and it depends on how he responds to acting consistent with international norms, which in many cases he has not,” Biden told reporters at the conclusion of a Group of Seven (G-7) leaders’ meeting in the UK.

The president was referring to a comment made by Putin last week to NBC News where he said, “We have a bilateral relationship that has deteriorated to its lowest point in recent years.”

Biden said the United States will not try to facilitate a conflict with Russia, saying that the two nations can try to reach agreements on certain, key issues.

“We are looking to resolve those actions which we think are inconsistent with international norms, number one. Number two, where we can work together, we may be able to do that in terms of some strategic doctrine that may be able to be worked together, we’re ready to do it. There may be other areas. There is even talk there may be the ability to work together on climate,” Biden told reporters Sunday.

In recent months, the United States has slapped sanctions on Moscow over its alleged role in the SolarWinds cyberattack that affected multiple federal agencies as well as Russia’s alleged interference in recent U.S. elections.

Biden also responded to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton administration staffer, in March when he asked if he thinks Putin is “a killer.” Biden replied, “I do.”

During his NBC News interview last week, Putin said Biden’s comment is “not something I worry about in the least.”

Considering the ways Biden has bowed to Russia, we cannot expect much resistance of Putin

Of course, there was the attack on the Colonial Pipeline where Biden issued no statement against Russia. No sanctions. No action. Then came the cyber attack on JBS. Again, no sanctions. No action. Then, months after cancelling the Keystone Pipeline in America and Canada, Biden removes the sanctions from the Nord Stream 2. All the money Russia invested in Biden seems to have been well spent.

Amid all of the happy talk on the news concerning the economy and American faith in Biden, businesses fail

Almost 40% of small businesses have been put under by the COVID shutdowns

PJ Media points out in a 14 June 2021 article how almost 40% of small businesses have been put out of business by the COVID shutdowns.

COVID shutdowns championed by U.S. governors and D.C. bureaucrats are responsible for destroying nearly 40% of small businesses since the virus was unleashed on the world—and we know now that it was for little to no damned good reason. A study by the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences revealed recently that shutdown orders made little to no difference in COVID’s impact. From the abstract of the study:

“Previous studies have claimed that shelter-in-place orders saved thousands of lives, but we reassess these analyses and show that they are not reliable. We find that shelter-in-place orders had no detectable health benefits, only modest effects on behavior, and small but adverse effects on the economy. To be clear, our study should not be interpreted as evidence that social distancing behaviors are not effective. Many people had already changed their behaviors before the introduction of shelter-in-place orders, and shelter-in-place orders appear to have been ineffective precisely because they did not meaningfully alter social distancing behavior.” [Emphasis added]

And it should have been evident for those caring to look.

While bureaucrats gave Walmart, Costco, Lowe’s, and other big-box stores “essential” status, allowing them to stay open during the COVID pandemic, 38.9% of America’s small businesses, the providers of most of the country’s jobs, were forced to close based on fear, hackneyed social-distancing rules, early ignorance about transmission, and an insatiable desire by governors to micromanage the affairs of men.

Democrats think themselves silenced when they talk to millions

Rashida Tlaib says she doesn’t have freedom of speech (in a tweet to her 1.4 million followers)

The Daily Caller comments in a 10 June 2021 article on the idiocy of Rashida Tlaib’s contention that she has been silenced.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib claimed that Muslim women in Congress don’t have freedom of speech in a Thursday tweet to her 1.4 million followers on Twitter.

Tlaib’s comments came in response to House Democrats condemning Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for creating a false equivalency between the U.S., Israel and groups like Hamas and the Taliban, who are engaged in terror activities. Omar herself clarified that she did not intend her original statement to equivocate, but Tlaib came to her defense and attacked House Democrats for criticizing Omar.

“Freedom of speech doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress,” she argued.

“The benefit of the doubt doesn’t exist for Muslim women in Congress. House Democratic leadership should be ashamed of its relentless, exclusive tone policing of Congresswomen of color.”

Omar equated the U.S. and Israel with terrorists in a Monday tweet.

Then again, in the Democrat party, boy is girl, wrong is right, White is dark …

Based on Democrat standards (which are none), one could easily say that Tlaib has been silenced when she speaks to her millions.

Google’s YouTube suspends Ron Johnson from uploading videos for seven days over hydroxychloroquine claims

Fox News reports in a 11 June 2021 article on the shutdown of Senator Ron Johnson videos that do little more than summarize information provided Anthony Fauci through the now-infamous emails.

RonJohnsonSen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., has been suspended from uploading videos to YouTube for seven days and had a video of a speech talking about early treatments to COVID-19 removed by the video-sharing giant.

The video removal and upload ban came after two videos of Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs hearings he led on early experimental treatments to the novel coronavirus, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.

Johnson told Fox News that “YouTube’s ongoing COVID censorship proves they have accumulated too much unaccountable power.”

“Big Tech and mainstream media believe they are smarter than medical doctors who have devoted their lives to science and use their skills to save lives,” Johnson said. “They have decided there is only one medical viewpoint allowed, and it is the viewpoint dictated by government agencies. How many lives will be lost as a result? How many lives could have been saved with a free exchange of medical ideas?”

“Government-sanctioned censorship of ideas and speech should concern us all,” Johnson added.

A spokesperson for YouTube told Fox News the website took down the video because it violated its COVID-19 “medical misinformation policies.”

“We removed the video in accordance with our COVID-19 medical misinformation policies, which don’t allow content that encourages people to use Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin to treat or prevent the virus,” the spokesperson said.

“YouTube doesn’t allow content that spreads medical misinformation that contradicts local health authorities’ or the World Health Organization’s (WHO) medical information about COVID-19,” the policy reads.

Specifically, the company will remove content promoting the use of hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin unless there is enough countervailing context, a YouTube blog post explains.

The video in question is of a speech Johnson gave where he torched the Biden and Trump administrations for “not only ignoring but working against robust research [on] the use of cheap, generic drugs to be repurposed for early treatment of COVID” and noted he held two hearings on the matter.

Had Ron Johnson only torched the Biden administration for its failures, there might have been room for an argument that he was being partisan

However, it seems that YouTube is just trying to play God. What YouTube should be doing is facilitating vigorous discussions on both the origin of the disease and means of overcoming the disease.

There should not be a game of political football occurring based on what one president said about a medicine (either Trump or Biden).

When YouTube will not allow an open discussion on the benefits of medicines debated among medical professionals, that is a step too far.

Congress looks to break up Big Tech with bold new antitrust bills

The New York Post reports in an 11 June 2021 article that Congress looks to break up Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other Big Tech giants with antitrust bills.

Congressional lawmakers are targeting tech giants over antitrust concerns — and the proposed legislation could force them to overhaul or even break up their increasingly dominant business empires.

The package of five antitrust bills introduced by a bipartisan group in Congress on Friday — aimed at Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google’s parent Alphabet — would make it harder for the biggest tech platforms to complete mergers and keep them from owning businesses that create conflicts of interest.

Two of the new bills could be particularly tricky for Amazon and Apple to navigate as they both run marketplaces that include their own products or apps that compete with outside sellers that rely on their services.

Called the “Ending Platform Monopolies Act,” sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash) and the “The American Innovation and Choice Online Act” sponsored by House Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), the reforms could potentially break up the tech behemoths by cracking down on conflicts of interest between their different business lines.

For their censorship, for their limiting of competition, and for their swallowing up competitors — the Big Techs need to be broken up

Just due to only their McCarthy-like railroading of conservatives, Google, Twitter, and Facebook should have been broken up long ago. Add to that, these giants have worked their way into over half of the phones (with Android and Google Play). They have bought up mid-size companies (like Google did with Fitbit in the next article and Facebook did with Instagram).

Additionally, it was Amazon’s denial of server space that put free-speech Parler out. Likewise, Amazon has denied authors and filmmakers critical of homosexuality a platform.

Google bought Fitbit

Indiana Fox affiliate WXIN reported in a 14 January 2021 article that Google had purchased Fitbit.

Google has completed its $2.1 billion acquisition of fitness-gadget maker Fitbit, a deal that could help the internet company grow even stronger while U.S. government regulators pursue an antitrust case aimed at undermining its power.

Thursday’s completion of the acquisition comes 14 months after Google announced a deal that immediately raised alarms.

Google makes most of its money by selling ads based on information it collects about its billions of users’ interests and whereabouts. Privacy watchdogs feared it might exploit Fitbit to peer even deeper into people’s lives.

But Google wound up entering a series of commitments in Europe and other parts of the world pledging it won’t use the health and fitness data from Fitbit’s 29 million users to sell more ads. It insists it is more interested in adding Fitbit to its expanding arsenal of internet-connected products, which include smartphones, laptops, speakers, cameras and thermostats.

Schiff reacts to Trump DOJ secretly seizing data from House Democrats

Independent Journal Review reports that Adam Schiff reacted wildly to news that the Trump DOJ seized data from House Democrats.

AdamFullOfSchiffHouse Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is speaking out after a report revealed the Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) seized records from at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee.

The New York Times reported that while the DOJ was investigating leaks of classified information during the Trump administration, “prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. One was a minor.”

Records of at least a dozen people tied to the House Intelligence Committee were seized in 2017 and early 2018, according to the report. This includes Schiff and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who is a member of the committee, according to the Times. They were told about it last month.

The Times also reports, “As the years wore on, some officials argued in meetings that charges were becoming less realistic, former Justice Department officials said: They lacked strong evidence, and a jury might not care about information reported years earlier.”

Appearing on “The Rachel Maddow Show” Thursday evening, Schiff said, “It’s really norm within norm within norm being broken here. The first, most important norm post-Watergate is the president of the United States does not get involved in particular cases at the Justice Department. He doesn’t urge the Justice Department to investigate particular people. That’s one very important norm.”

Biden: White supremacists are “the most dangerous people” in America

First, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported in a 17 February 2021 article that Dementia Joe announced that White supremacists constituted the greatest threat to America. Yeah, greater than the Islamic terrorists who killed close to 3,000 Americans on 11 September 2001.

BrainlessJoePresident Joe Biden, saying domestic terrorism was the “greatest threat” in America and white supremacists are the “most dangerous people,” pledged to focus his Justice Department on the rise of white supremacy.

Biden, in Milwaukee on Feb. 16 at his first town hall as president, fielded a question from Joel Berkowitz, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, about what Berkowitz termed the “ongoing threat” from white supremacists in the wake of the deadly Jan. 6 raid on the U.S. Capitol. A number of far-right groups and figures were involved in the insurrection.

“I got involved in politics to begin with because of civil rights and opposition to white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, and the most dangerous people in America continue to exist,” Biden said on the CNN-sponsored event, which was hosted by Anderson Cooper. “That is the greatest threat to terror in America, domestic terror. And so I would make sure that my Justice Department and the civil rights division is focused heavily on those very folks, and I would make sure that we, in fact, focus on how to deal with the rise of white supremacy.”

Biden has tapped Merrick Garland, a Jewish judge, to be his attorney general.

The president noted reports of more police and military personnel joining white supremacist groups. The Trump administration downplayed the threat of right-wing terrorism, and Biden attacked Donald Trump for what he depicted as his predecessor’s encouragement of far-right groups.

“You may remember, in one of my debates with the former president, I asked him to condemn the Proud Boys and he wouldn’t do it,” Biden said. “He said ‘Stand by,’ stand ready, or whatever the phrase exactly was.” Trump had told the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by.”

Bantering with Berkowitz, who teaches foreign languages and literature, prior to the question, Biden said he studied French for five years and could not speak it.

What Joe means is “Trump voters are the most dangerous threat to my future” 

Similar to Nancy Pelosi’s contentions against the 6 January protesters, Joe’s contentions fall flat when you consider his personal history. If you look back to the 70’s, you will see that Joe was trying to protect White communities from busing. Additionally, Joe was the champion of drug laws aimed at minorities. Furthermore, just ask Joe what two positions Robert Byrd held. One position Byrd held was Exalted Cyclops of a KKK group. The other major position Byrd held was a job as senator, where he worked alongside Biden.

Biden warns military members stationed in Britain that global warming presents the greatest threat to America

Next, Townhall comments in a 10 June 2021 article that Slo-Mo Joe said that global warming presents the greatest threat to us.

President Biden told U.S. servicemembers on Wednesday that top Pentagon officials consider climate change to be the “greatest physical threat” to U.S. national security. 

He recalled a meeting he had with the military when he first became vice president under Obama, where they were briefed on the greatest threats to the country. 

“This is not a joke,” he told the Air Force personnel based in England.  “You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest physical threat facing America was? Global warming. 

“There will be significant population movements, fights over land, millions of people leaving places because they’re literally sinking below the sea in Indonesia, because of the fights over what is arable land anymore,” he continued.

Noting that he’ll be in meetings with G-7 and NATO partners in the coming days, Biden said combatting climate change would require a commitment from these countries as well.

“To tackle this century’s most pressing challenges, we have to do it together,” urged Biden. “We must all commit to an ambitious climate action if we’re going to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, limiting global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, and lead the global — the global transition to clean energy technology.” 

As one Twitter user pointed out, Biden made the remark ahead of a meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin, who presents a much greater threat. 

“Biden calls climate change the most dangerous threat to US security right before sitting down with Putin, the actual most dangerous clear and present threat to US security,” tweeted Garry Kasparov, chairman of the Human Rights Foundation.

Others said China’s the real threat.

Naturally, Joe would make this assertion to military members who can’t call him out

Biden’s real threat: consumer prices jump 5%, fastest pace since 2008

Breitbart reports in a 10 June 2021 article that inflation has jumped 5% (the greatest jump since Obama).

Consumer prices surged higher in May.

The Consumer Price Index rose five percent compared with a year ago, the Department of Labor said Thursday. On a monthly basis, the CPI rose a hotter than expected 0.6 percent.

Economists had expected the Labor Department to report that consumer prices rose 0.5 percent in May compared with April. The consensus forecast was for a 4.7 percent gain when measured against May of 2020, which would have been the hottest reading since skyrocketing energy prices pushed up the index in the fall of 2008.

The reading for core inflation, which strips out volatile food and energy prices, was expected to rise 3.5 percent compared with a year ago. That would have been the strongest annual increase in 28 years. On a monthly basis, economists were expecting a 0.5 percent gain.

In Thursday’s release, the government said core inflation rose 0.7 percent. On an annual basis, core inflation jumped 3.8 percent. This was the hottest reading since June 1992.

The index for used cars and trucks continued to rise sharply, jumping 7.3 percent in May. Compared with a year ago, used car prices are up 29.7 percent.

Of course, this is only a self-inflicted threat to Biden. Our threat is Biden and the threats he lets in

We have already endured two cyber attacks that were so effective that Americans could not ignore the resulting crises (an accomplishment for the Russians).

We have endured the shutdown of natural resources that have been reflected in our currently-high gasoline prices (which inordinately effect the poor, Joe). We have seen Joe’s indifference to American workers’ plight as he shuts down the Keystone XL and similar energy-related projects. We have seen Joe rewarding his Russian benefactors through the removal of sanctions on the Nord Stream 2.

What we have yet to see is how many Islamic terrorists have slipped through Joe’s porous Southern border. We have yet to see whether his planned dilution of conservative votes with socialists from Central America will work (or whether these will turn out to be people who know to love God and avoid socialism).

Psychiatrist based out of New York City tells Yale audience she fantasizes about shooting white people in head

The New York Post reports in a 4 June 2021 article on the psychiatrist from New York City who told a Yale audience of her fantasy of “unloading a clip” into a White person’s head.

DrArunaKhilananiA New York City-based psychiatrist told an audience at the Yale School of Medicine in April that she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.”

Dr. Aruna Khilanani spewed the race-hating virtual remarks — in which she also said she’d walk away from the shooting “with a bounce in my step” and that white people “make my blood boil” and “are out of their minds and have been for a long time” — at the Ivy League institution’s Child Study Center on April 6.

Audio of the talk was posted on the substack online platform of former New York Times opinion writer and editor Bari Weiss on Friday, along with an interview of Khilanani conducted by writer and podcaster Katie Herzog.

A flyer promoting the talk and posted online by Weiss titled the lecture, “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind” and included “learning objectives” such as “Set up white people’s absence of empathy towards black rage as a problem” and “Understand how white people are psychologically dependent on black rage.”

Khilanani opened her remarks by telling the audience, “I’m gonna say a lot of things, and it will probably provoke a lot of responses, and I want you to just maybe observe them in yourself.”

She then added “prayers up for DMX” before discussing what she described as the “intense rage and futility” people of color purportedly feel when talking to white people about racism.

“We are calm, we are giving, too giving, and then when we get angry, they use our responses as confirmation that we’re crazy or have emotional problems,” Khilanani said. “It always ends that way, happens every time. Like a Goddamn timer, you can count it down.

“Nothing makes me angrier than a white person who tells me not to be angry, because they have not seen real anger yet,” she said — before talking about how she “systematically” cut off most of her former white friends “around five years ago.

“I stopped watching the news,” Khilanani continued. “Once I started, I couldn’t stop.

“It was also a public service,” she said. “I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f–king favor.”

It is my contention that, had this been a conservative saying he or she dreamed of shooting minorities, the story would have been given the coverage recently allotted to the 1921 Tulsa race riot

That is to say, if this psychiatrist had been a raving right lunatic rather than a run-of-the-mill left lunatic, this would have taken over the newscasts for weeks.

After over a year of deriding those who think COVID-19 came from Wuhan, the NYT refuses to report on the Fauci emails

Townhall points out how the New York Times has refused to report on the Fauci emails (despite having harangued us for over a year over “unfounded Wuhan-virus conspiracies.”)

The New York Times has yet to publish a single story about the release of thousands of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails, obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests by The Washington Post and BuzzFeed News last week. 

Though left-leaning outlets like CNN only covered the emails in a positive light—emphasizing “the weight that came with his role as a rare source of frank honesty within the Trump administration’s Covid-19 task force,” The New York times has seemingly ignored the story altogether. 

At the time of writing, a search for Fauci and his emails brings up zero results. Others on Twitter have noticed the glaring omission from the paper of record as well. 



The Fauci emails contain a treasure trove of newsworthy content, such as that the NIAID director was told the novel coronavirus looked “potentially engineered,” that he knew retail masks were not effective, he was circulating gain-of-function research in February of 2020, and much more.

__One would think that there would be at least one online, conservative-bating article (like the one on the Babylon Bee)

Since the New York Times is obviously so hard up for subscriptions that they will email out teaser articles like the one on the Babylon Bee, it would seem that they could publish at least one mea clupa on their minor god Fauci.

I might pay a dollar or two just to access that.

The NYTwits and Snopes cannot differentiate between humor and fake news

NYTwits at the New York Times try to make a case for demonizing the humor of the Babylon Bee.

Satire or deceit? Christian humor site feuds with Snopes.

On one side is Snopes, the influential (sic) fact-checking website founded 25 years ago.

On the other is the Babylon Bee, an upstart Christian satirical website that lampoons progressive ideas, Democrats, Christians and President Trump.

Not even the New York Times could be this dense. This must be a refusal to see.

Just as the Pharisees who questioned Jesus when he healed the blind man could not see their own spiritual blindness (John 9: 34-41), there are some today who cannot get over their biases to see the point of satire. Publish a satire piece on how a Half-Black man was ordered to pay himself reparations, and they would probably ask for receipts.

In the words of the 45th President of the United States, “They are fake news.” So maybe they are too close to the trees to see the forest.

 

Two stories generally missed by the main stream media

Guatemala’s president says Biden’s “confusing” messages created border crisis

New York Post reports on the words of the Guatemalan president prior to the nearly $1 billion sent to the golden triangle and Mexico.

Guatemala’s president is blaming the Biden administration’s “confusing” messages ​for creating the crisis at the US border — the second leader to make that claim after Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador made similar remarks in March.

“I believe that in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, messages were confusing. They were compassionate messages that were understood by people in our country, especially the coyotes, to tell families, ‘We’ll take the children,’” President Alejandro Giammattei said Tuesday during an interview on MSNBC.

“And children can go, and once children are there, they will call their parents,” he continued.

He said the messages were confusing “not because of the way they were communicated but because of the way they were translated here.”

Giammattei said that when unaccompanied minors begin to make the trek to the US, it creates a “matter of concern because as soon as they cross the border between Mexico and the US, they fall into the hands of cartels and prostitution networks, and so on.​”​​

The Guatemalan president said he has seen coyotes carrying out “horrible acts” like dropping children from atop high walls, adding that “this is not humane behavior.”

​He also faulted the US and other countries for not responding adequately to the surge of migrants.

Yes, Joe Biden owns this surge (not global warming or Trump or any other thing Democrats would like to blame today)

Of course, we know that Joe Biden stood before campaign crowds and called for a surge at the border. We know this because it happened on stage more than one time.

Guatemalan protesters tell Kamala Harris “Trump won”

New York Post also reports on the words of Guatemalan protesters along the route that Kamala took.

Vice President Kamala Harris was greeted Monday by protesters in Guatemala telling her “Trump won” and “go home” — as the country’s president blamed President Biden for this year’s migrant crisis.

The rally was visible to Harris’ motorcade as she arrived to meet with Guatemala President Alejandro Giammattei one day after he blamed the US for luring his constituents north.

“Kamala, Trump won,” read a large sign near the Central American country’s presidential palace.

“Kamala, Mind Your Own Business,” another sign said, according to a pool report.

Images posted to Twitter show other signs, including one that tells Biden’s migration czar: “Kamala, Go Home.”

Another large sign set up by activists features a doctored photo of a pregnant Harris.

The poster read, “Guatemala is pro-life #momalahelpme.” Harris does not have biological children.

Considering the billions of dollars American taxpayers have dumped into Central America, there is good reason for Central Americans to want us out

Only the politicians benefit from Biden’s dropping nearly a billion dollars into the pockets of ranking politicians in Central America. The populace does not benefit. In fact, most of the youngest have moved out. Almost 20% of the Guatemalan economy comes from remittances submitted by expats to support family back at home. So the system of dumping money in politicians pockets and (as Biden put it) “forcing” the population to move to America does not benefit the general population of Guatemala.

So it should not come as a surprise that they tell us that they, too, supported Trump and want Kamala out.

Additionally, now that Biden has announced that he has formed an alliance with big business to exploit labor in Central America provide employment in Central America (even while we are having hard times in America with getting people to go back to work), we should not be surprised. 

 

Have you ever needed a reason to thank God for living where you do?

If you need a reason to thank God for living where God has planted you (even be it in a transitory spot with air roots), consider the videos at Houston Dashcammer.

Specifically, consider being around:

Drivers who cross lines and tailgate

This video compiles scenes of drivers in Houston crossing lines and tailgating.

Of course, laws vary by state. In Texas, the law says regarding parallel white lines: “Parallel white lines indicate that changing lanes or turning across the lines is prohibited.”

On single lines (not included in this video): “Single white lines are used to channelize traffic and indicates that changing lanes is discouraged, although not specifically prohibited.”

Drivers who use the controlled-access lane and split lanes

This video is a compilation of dashcam videos showing drivers on the controlled-access lane. It also shows motorcyclists splitting lanes.

Lane splitting is when a motorcycle rides between lanes or rows of slow moving or stopped traffic that is moving in the same direction. In Texas motorcycle riders are not allowed to split lanes.

Additionally, there are limited permitted reasons to drive on the limited-access lane (shoulder) on in-city highways. Usually, you will be ticketed if you get caught by an officer driving on the shoulder.
