Conspiracies, Reality, Ignorance, festering and boiling

Pathetic, fatal, fighting truth, indifferent, vicious, disruptive, injustice; vox populi can be other than a logical fallacy; semaphore warnings; is this America?

The moment Joe Biden finally lost his credibility. Salena Zito — “If President Joe Biden’s disorderly and lethal Afghanistan withdrawal was the moment that fractured voters’ regard for him, then his vicious Atlanta speech last week may be the moment that defines his presidency. … Biden uttered venomous, brutal accusations lacking factual basis.” … “As with Afghanistan, the media and the people who surround Biden will dismiss the public reaction, and Biden will be worse off for it.”

Conspiracies as Realities, Realities as Conspiracies. Victor Davis Hanson — “Conspiracy projection has split apart the country. The Left has fought efforts to learn the full truth, as they project conspiracies to disguise conspirators.” … “The collusion, COVID-19, and January 6 narratives have been terribly costly to the nation.” … “All this is as pathetic as it is fatal to the survival of the American project.”

‘Red-Handed’ Contains 1,093 Endnotes, No Unnamed Sources. Rebecca Mansour — “The US is warning of an imminent Russian false flag attack to justify its Ukraine invasion; Russia is warning of a false flag attack by the West against it.”

There Are So Many False Flags Being Waved It Looks Like A Semaphore Competition. Michael Every of Rabobank — 

The New Fauci Emails May Be Even More Damning Than You Think. Leslie Eastman — “The Intercept’s Ryan Grim reviews February 2020 timeline of how coronavirus lab-leak theory was suppressed for “international harmony”.

Was the Revolutionary War an insurrection or a reclamation of rights? Molly Slag — “The best starting point for understanding American Civics is the Crisis of July 5, 1776. … The crisis was what henceforth would be the controlling law to be applied in the new nation’s courts to resolve disputes.”

The FBI Response to the Texas Synagogue Attack Is Absolutely Sick. Bonchie — “This absolute gaslighting garbage has to stop. … because the FBI did what it did, that gave the media a green light to completely obfuscate from what happened at this Texas synagogue. It was just a random act of violence, completely detached from the Jewish community, perpetrated by a man with an “English accent.””

That scene at the Union Pacific rail depot is all about wokesterism, not the weird things the press is cooking up. Monica Showalter — “What it’s not is all the idiotic things the press has been trying to blame for it, and I’m looking at you, Los Angeles Times.”

Fighters Are Uncovering 2020 Election Ugliness in Michigan. Rebecca Behrends — “t is no longer business as usual for them or “don’t worry, next time!”  Michigan conservative Republicans understand that the well-being of America is at stake.  In the words of Montesquieu, “the tyranny of a prince is not so dangerous to the public welfare asVideo Shows Pennsylvania Official Admitting Election Laws Were Broken In 2020 the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.”

Video Shows Pennsylvania Official Admitting Election Laws Were Broken In 2020. Margot Cleveland — “yet another example of the widespread violations of election law during the last presidential election.”

AP offers staggering example of media’s dishonest spin. Andrea Widburg — “Trump was “absotively, posilutely” correct.  But the AP couldn’t give him that.  Instead, this is the laughable pretzel that emanated from AP’s alleged “fact-checkers,” which is irrelevant spin that fails to address core facts:”

I&I/TIPP Poll: Is Religion Under Attack? A Majority Say Yes. Terry Jones — “Both sides of the political debate agree that there’s a schism of sorts in America, a cultural battle that transcends ordinary politicking and goes to the heart of how we see ourselves and our fellow Americans.Both sides of the political debate agree that there’s a schism of sorts in America, a cultural battle that transcends ordinary politicking and goes to the heart of how we see ourselves and our fellow Americans.” … “even as Americans become less religious, they still treasure the idea of religious freedom,”

LGBT Activists Have Been Using Courts To Harass This Christian Baker For Ten Years. Joy Pullmann — “Jack Phillips is an American. His nation’s supreme law claims to protect his inalienable rights to free speech and to freely practice his faith. Yet for ten years, these same rights have been effectively suspended by a state legislature and multiple courts, despite a 2018 win in the U.S. Supreme Court.” … “Phillips’s faith is in the one true God, whose promises never fail, unlike even the promises in the U.S. Constitution that judges often fail to make good.”

 

Biden Supporter Makes Trouble at Trump Rally, but She Immediately Has Cause to Regret It. Nick Arama — “That account was essentially attacking the police, implicitly claiming a wrongful arrest without even knowing the facts as to why she was cuffed because they’re partisan against Trump. Not exactly being supportive of the police there.”

Dr. Jeffrey Singer’s Amicus Brief With The Supreme Court — “evidence and testimony by supportive patients were all withheld from the jury. In addition, the jury was misled that Dr. Ruan could have called anyone he wanted as a witness, although he was only allowed to call patients used by the prosecution.”

Crumbling Narratives Leave the Ruling Class with Everything to Fear. J.B. Shurk — “Here’s what our COVID-1984 authoritarians want: they seek to use pandemics, wars, uncontrolled immigration, doomsday climate predictions, and “woke” cultural Marxism to keep people in a constant state of fear, divided among themselves, and willing to hand over their freedoms for evaporative promises of protection.  “Protection” in this racket means survival but not life, equity but not fairness, financial handouts but not prosperity, and politically correct narratives but no truth.”

Checking the boxes in political divisiveness

a pandemic euphemism; political divides clear; President oath on Constitution? checking boxes; dangerous presumption in commerce; SCOTUS skirts.

Politicizing COVID-19 From the Start. Victor Davis Hanson — “Political frenzy was inevitable since the SARS-CoV-2 virus may have escaped from a level-4 security virology lab in Wuhan, China. … Western elites, in response, feared that their own lucrative investments in China would be jeopardized by such disclosures — and so acted accordingly in defending Beijing.”

Politicizing the pandemic is a euphemism. In truth, thousands of Americans have died needlessly because of weaponized disinformation about China’s culpability, vaccines, useful drugs, lockdowns, racial preferences, and long-care facilities.

Bless Their Little Authoritarian Hearts: Democrats Support Punishing the Unvaccinated. Stacey Lennox — “the poll finds that most Democrat voters support vaccine mandates, and many want punitive measures against those who haven’t gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. – The partisan divide is painfully obvious in the result”

If the corporate media really wants us to believe that COVID has not caused a mass Formation Psychosis, they might want to start dumping facts and reality into the heads of their Democrat viewers. Because promoting punitive, authoritarian policies that violate Americans’ fundamental rights is patently insane. Especially over a virus that everyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated, is going to get according to their favorite bureaucrat, Dr. Fauci.

The dangerous assumption people are making about the COVID shots. Leann Horrocks — “An awful lot of people are making a very dangerous assumption about the COVID-19 jabs: that the manufacture of them is pristine.”

The Supreme Court got it right on private employer mandates. Andrea Widburg — “When OSHA issued a vaccine mandate aimed at all companies with 100 or more employees, every federal judge in America should have known that it was a severe case of bureaucratic overreach.”

The Supreme Court’s Ruling On Vaccine Mandates Is Frighteningly Weak. Margot Cleveland — “The question is, why? Also, why did Gorsuch’s concurrence in the OSHA case only garner three votes, including his own?”

White House Calls on Businesses to Ignore Supreme Court Decision on Vaccination and Force the Vaccine Mandate Regardless of Constitutional Merit. Sundance

The View from the Cheat Seats. Tony Perkins — “For Joe Biden, the Atlanta speech checked all the boxes: a handful of out-of-context Bible verses (check), wild historical inaccuracies (check), gratuitous references to Jan. 6 (check), the abandonment of another decades-long political view (check), and a general shaming of any American who thinks consensus and honesty ought to be part of our governing structure.”

Never Trumpers Get Savaged by Americans After They Show Biden Remorse. Nick Arama — “You helped get us into this mess, which we all now have to deal with. Don’t you dare act upset with anything Biden says now.”

The blindness is willful?

The J6  abuse continues – some are climbing mountains to get above the clouds and see the horizon, there are consequences for those in Plato’s cave.

D.C. Jail Cuts J6 Prisoners’ Communications After Newsmax Interview. Megan Fox — “Regardless of what crimes these people are charged with, there is a protocol for how prisoners are supposed to be treated, especially pre-trial detainees who have the presumption of innocence. None of that seems to have been followed in the cases involving the J6 arrestees.”

Everything Is Clear From Up Here – The Good Citizen. Vanderleun — “hey will still be fast asleep when the first oligarchs and western health technocrats are strung up for crimes against humanity. They will scream in horror and disbelief as the first necks are snapped with elegant Steinway piano wire”

You will come to realize that if the last two years can be planned, engineered, and carried out with no consequences and such utter disdain for humanity, there is nothing they won’t do to terrorize or kill innocent people for their ends. You will see there are no sciences uncorrupted, no academics who can’t be bought, no doctors who wouldn’t mechanically suffocate your grandmother after destroying her kidneys for a chance to increase their salary and keep their license. No corporate entity or government agency that wouldn’t lie, cheat, steal, gaslight to keep the truth from you, and you from the truth. You will see that liberty is not an assumption, it cannot be assumed anywhere on earth if not fought for constantly, while its gates can never be unguarded ever again. You will see that if you want any semblance of liberty again you will have to depend only on yourself, and trust none of those you once trusted who have not made it to the mountain top yet, who cannot yet see all that you see with perfect fearless clarity. In this profound realization, you will feel alone, but you must know that you are not.

The Cruise Ship Industry Learns a Valuable Lesson After Bowing to Joe Biden. Bonchie  — “The cruise ship industry has been hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, much of their pain and suffering has been self-inflicted, driven by their mindless following of pointless federal dictates.” … “when Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida stood up to fight against such measures, the cruise ship companies not only spit in his face, they actively opposed him in court. Instead of following the data, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and others bent the knee to Joe Biden, even when they weren’t legally required to. – Well, they are about to get a hard lesson in why that was a big mistake.”

Plato’s Cave is so comfortable, it seems

When all you see is the master’s shadow show – then there are the prosecutor politicians, the Left’s coup efforts, the corruption of the FBI, criminal insanity – and that doesn’t get into climate change and pandemic panics.

Plato’s Cave 2.0. Thomas Buckley — “his “Allegory of the Cave” would be rather different, as it would have to take into account the idea that not only would people choose to live in the cave, but they would go so far as to build one themselves. — Plato imagined a cave in which people are chained in place and only able to see shadows projected on a wall by their captors.  As they could observe nothing else, the shadows essentially become their reality.”

When Prosecutors Become Politicians. Armstrong Williams — “Prosecutors are effectively taking the law into their own hands in cases such as these, superseding the whims of the legislature that wrote the laws to protect citizens, preventing the courts from delving into the evidence, discovering facts and doing justice, denying the public the right to know the specific types of crime that occur in their city, as well as the names and faces of those who commit those crimes, and denying the public the right to be aware of the specific types of crime that occur in their city and places and activities to avoid. This isn’t justice; it is politics infiltrating what is meant to be an apolitical part of our system of government.”

The FBI’s Criminal Lead Informant in Whitmer ‘Kidnapping’ Caper. Julie Kelly — “The Federal Bureau of Investigation is a morally bankrupt, politically  weaponized agency doing the dirty work of the Democratic Party.” … “It’s only a matter of time before we learn how many Stephen Robesons and Richard Trasks were involved in the events of January 6.”

The Truth You Never Learned about Watergate. John Dale Dunn — “The Nixon Conspiracy:  Watergate and the Plot to Remove the President by Geoff Shepard.” … “I found stunning documentary evidence — memoranda that document the professional and judicial misconduct of the key players, sometimes in their own hand.  Examples abound:” … “When you read this book, you don’t have to be reminded that Watergate looks like dress rehearsal or an opening act for the events of 2015 to 2021.”

Before Kyle Rittenhouse, there was Steven Baca. Michelle Malkin — “Steven’s case matters because the woke, George Soros-funded district attorney leading the witch-hunt prosecution against Steven may soon be New Mexico’s next attorney general if good people do nothing.” … “Steven is banned from Facebook and GoFundMe, but 1,275 donors have joined me in raising $60,000 for his case. You can find the crowdfunding campaign here: https://fundly.com/stand-with-steven-baca. It’s us or the anarchotyrannists. Choose.”

“Pure Insanity”: San Francisco Residents Reflect On Surge In Crime. Jamie Joseph via The Epoch Times, — “While brazen thefts at small businesses and retail stores in San Francisco have increased, drawing national headlines since the beginning of this year, some business owners told The Epoch Times they’ve stopped reporting the crimes because when they call the police, “they can’t do anything.”

The New Climate of Panic Among the Panic-Mongers. Christopher Monckton of Brenchley — “Correcting the error removes Their near certainty of large and dangerous anthropogenic warming. It destroys Their pretext to shut down the West.”

The COVID Narrative Is Insane & Illogical… And Maybe That’s No Accident. Kit Knightly via Off-Guardian.org, — “That is long-established at this point, we don’t really need to go into how or why here. Read our back catalogue.” … “Maybe forcing people to believe your lies, even after you admit you’re lying, is the purest form of power…”

Who Supports Our Service Members? Mark Wauck — “why is no one making an issue of the Covid Regime’s ruthless purge of the military?”

Cruise Ships Exposed COVID Fearmongering Deception In 2020 And Expose Vaccine Efficacy Deception Now.  Adam Dick via The Ron Paul Institute — “Back in March of 2020, when the coronavirus fearmongering from politicians and big money media was taking off, an outbreak of coronavirus and several deaths on the Diamond Princess cruise ship was among the examples used to stir up dread of coronavirus among the American populace. — However, people who looked critically at the Diamond Princess situation realized that it suggested coronavirus did not pose an especially great threat.”

We must make public-health authorities accountable for their COVID lies. Glenn H. Reynolds — “Ever since cases first appeared in Wuhan, the reaction has been marked by mistakes, reversals, outright lying and even political manipulation.” … “It’s time for a rigorous investigation — perhaps a Truth and Reconciliation Commission with subpoena power — to get to the bottom of how our public-health authorities have mismanaged this pandemic. There’s certainly no chance that the existing establishment will do so.”

The Video Message That Resulted in Dr. Robert Malone Banned from Twitter, An Alarming Warning About Vaccinating Children. Sundance — “Dr. Malone has always presented himself as an intelligent and thoughtful man of even & stable disposition.”

We’re never going to learn about how safe this vaccine is unless we start giving it.” “So, let’s look at the evidence.” Robert W Malone MD, MS

COVID treatment protocols and the death of ‘trust your doctor’. Jeffrey I. Barke — “It is well past time for Americans to wake up and realize that the institutions that we used to trust without question and the professionals that we held in the highest esteem are not what they used to be.  We once again need to take responsibility to do our own research for our personal well-being.  And most of all, we need to put our love of liberty, as Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has so aptly put it, ahead of our fear of a germ.”

A failure of grace. Never in history.

VDH describes ‘so little gratitude’. Christian food provisions illustrate the point. The Quadrant has a history lesson. Bureaucracy ruins a doctor’s career. Insanity runs rampant as consequences keep showing their face.

The Ungracious—and Their Demonization of the Past. Victor Davis Hanson — “Never in history has such a mediocre, but self-important and ungracious generation owed so much, and yet expressed so little gratitude to its now dead forebears. … there are lots of logical flaws in attacking prior generations in U.S. history.”

After Spokane Food Program Officials Turn Away Unvaccinated for Christmas Meals – Patriots Step In and Feed Everyone. Eric Thompson — “Dan Bell, who helped organize a food drive and feed the homeless, said he was surprised to see that a Catholic church was involved in turning away the hungry. “As a Christian, if you’re following the teachings of Jesus, you feed the hungry, right? You feed all hungry.”

The Prophetic Shadow of Rome’s Ruin. Mervyn Bendle — “what must be driven home is how precious and vulnerable Civilisation is, and how easily it can be destroyed if its leaders lack resolve and competence and the people prove unable or unwilling to protect a way of life they have been allowed to take for granted.”

God and Ego: Trump vs. Obama. Selwyn Duke — “A “great man knows he is not God,” observed the great and greater G.K. Chesterton — “and the greater he is the better he knows it.”

Do Democrats Want to Build Back Better, or Do They Want a Coup? E. Jeffrey Ludwig — “Through a number of pressure points, the left is trying to overwhelm and subvert constitutional checks and balances, basic ideas of fairness, historical understandings of things like voter rights and equality of opportunity (which is not and should never be equality of outcomes), law and order, the public weal in protecting against theft and bodily harm, and responsible conduct as the sign of a good citizen.”

Kim Potter Conviction: A Blatant Miscarriage of Justice. Andrew Branca — “Prosecution never showed evidence of recklessness and deliberately misled the jury on the law.”

How telemedicine ruined a physician’s career — a personal story bringing to mind Don Quixote

Liberal Judge Rules Ousting Illegal Aliens Who Reenter the Country ‘Racist’ and ‘Unconstitutional’. Mike Miller — “according to The Times, federal courts are facing the ridiculous question of whether the “imbalance” in deportations means U.S. immigration law is… wait for it… racist.”

Renewables’ Reckoning Is Long Overdue. Bob Maistros — “Unfortunately, this correspondent begs to differ. Cratering rationales won’t produce the end of climate hysteria nor renewables, much less a reckoning. … Discredited climate hysteria and renewables are here to stay. Reckonings, not so much.”

Arguing about common sense

What is the role of a proper religion? One clue is in the anti-work movement. Rod Sterling is being called. Myth making gets studied and a Flynn example dissected. The Kulak Class right here in Washington D.C. Trends in awful science ‘journalism.’

The Christian Paradox. Tim Jones — “the loss of Christian spirituality as a result of it being divorced from and given a back seat to the materialism of the modern era has been the disregard of the values that were first exemplified by the life and death of Christ: sacrifice, charity, and obligation. This has led directly to the plague of our time: self-love, greed, and hedonism. It’s time to get back to basics to confront current problems.”

On holiday forever: Anti-work ethic spreads. Joanne Jacobs — “Working less or working differently can make a lot of sense — if you can pay the bills and feed the kids. Not working at all? I did a series on welfare reform 20-odd years ago: Living on welfare is miserable. You’re poor and you’re powerless.” … “The idea that we should be able to live without working is one of the “luxury beliefs” that Rob Henderson and Robert Pondiscio have written about. These are “ideas and opinions that confer status on the rich at very little cost, while taking a toll on the lower class.”

Entering The American Twilight Zone.Patricia Henry — “We didn’t know it then, but on Election Night, November 8, 2020, America entered a Twilight Zone every bit as eerie and unanticipated as anything dreamed up by Rod Serling decades earlier.”

Myth-Making in the Modern Age: A Primer. Roger Kimball — “The myth that January 6 was an insurrection that aimed to “overthrow the government” must not be allowed to stand. The time to counter the Big Lie is now.”

Misinterpreting a federal judge’s ruling denying Michael Flynn’s request for a temporary restraining order on Jan. 6 committee. David Zukerman — “Prior to scanning media treatment of the Scriven ruling, I had read Judge Mary S. Scriven’s opinion on Gen. Flynn’s request for a temporary restraining order (TRO).  The very opening sentence of the Law and Crime take on the Order from Judge Scriven, was so at variance with the reality of her ruling, that I realized I needn’t go further to find that the media has yet to treat Gen. Flynn fairly.”

America’s Kulak Class: Horrific Prison Conditions for January 6 Republicans “Treated as Subhuman” Predicted by Abe Lincoln in 1860. Erik — “It would be too much of a stretch to compare Andersonville (to use another Civil War-era image) to “the DC Gulag”, but still, when you hear how rights are being violated by Democrats or leftists, check out if the portrait of one of the wardens isn’t at least partly reminiscent of the CSA’s Commandant Henry Wirz… ” 

13 Happenings In 2021 That I Never Would Have Believed 5 Years Ago. Elaanor Bartow — “The world seemed to get closer to spinning out of its orbit in 2021. If you’d told me five years ago that men would be treated as women, criminals would not be prosecuted, and censorship would be widespread, I wouldn’t have believed you.”

4 Awful Science Journalism Trends That Should Die In 2022. Cameron English — “Science journalism is plagued by several critical problems that jeopardize its credibility. If we want the public to be more science-minded, we have to correct these issues sooner rather than later.” … “Since reporters are human and all humans are flawed, sloppy science coverage is inevitable to a certain extent. But the advocacy-as-journalism trend needs to be reversed before science media loses what remains of its dwindling credibility with the general public.” … “Conclusions in search of evidence – Nuance? What’s nuance? – Cheerleaders for censorship – Fair-weather science advocacy”

Ten Considerations Before You Create Another Chart About COVID-19. Amanda Makulec — “To sum it up — #vizresponsibly; which may mean not publishing your visualizations in the public domain at all” … “the stakes are high around how we communicate about this epidemic to the wider public. Visualizations are powerful for communicating information, but can also mislead, misinform, and — in the worst cases — incite panic.”

1. Do more to understand the numbers than just downloading and diving right into a dataset.

4. Be cautious when making generalized predictions or comparisons based on regionally specific data.

5. Visualizations should inform and be honest about what isn’t represented.

9. Consider the human side of what you create.

10. Consider how visualizations can impact (and encourage) social responsibility as we see COVID-19 in our respective communities.

THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION HAS GONE FULL WOKE. Instapundit — “And the result is truly astonishing. Here is how it recommends that doctors speak:” … “While you’re at it, check this one out too:  Organizational Strategic Plan to Embed Racial Justice and Advance Health Equity. — These folks have seriously lost their minds.”

Covid Common Sense [With Comment. Paul] John Hinderaker — “One of the strangest aspects of governments’ responses to covid has been the lack of emphasis on treatment.”

Choosing death

FBI Chicanery? Do tell. – Flynn describes outrage. – Manchin worries. – NATO has a flat tire. — Hypotheticals for the hypocrites. – picking cherries WWII style. — DeSantis vs CRT. – Deep state v evidence.

Was the FBI’s Whitmer Chicanery a Warm-up for January 6? Julie Kelly — “By removing three dirty cops from the witness list, the Justice Department hopes to prevent any cross-examination during the trial and, one supposes, any link to January 6.”

A paragraph that puts to shame the January 6 Select Committee of the House of Representatives. David Zukerman — “I believe the words in this paragraph demand the immediate attention of the  United States Congress, the media, and, of course the readers” … “By implication, paragraph 3 of the complaint brought by Lt. General Flynn against Speaker Pelosi and her cohort is tantamount to a call on a free people to rise up, to declare that the Pelosi panel is an affront to the Constitution and the American spirit of liberty, and to demand an  end, forthwith, to the politically- obscene conduct of this committee of the House of Representatives, a committee that offends the Constitution and is an insult to the men who drafted our organic document  of government.”

Manchin shows Biden’s dangerous. Don Surber — “Voters and pundits misread Biden. They thought they were getting a harmless and befuddled old man who would keep the seat warm while the two parties sorted things out Après Trump.”

Biden, Trump, NATO and Ukraine. By F. Charles Parker IV — “The Trump years resulted in a demonstrable U.S. recommitment to NATO, and a strengthened Alliance. NATO capabilities that were not available in 2014 are there. A NATO led by the United States has more options than in 2014. But Putin is testing the viability of that commitment now that Biden is in power.”

Three ‘What Ifs’ We’re Not Supposed to Ask. J.B. Shurk — “Counterfactuals, like “conspiracy theories,” are frowned upon by those who look guilty when they are posed.  Here are three to chew on during the holidays:” … “Some people despise “what if” hypotheticals.  What if those people are the same ones who can’t face the overwhelming evidence for their own hypocrisy?”

Progressive DA Larry Krasner’s office in chaos after 261 attorneys quit during his first term. John Sexton — “Progressive DA Larry Krasner’s response to that spike in violence has been denial.” … “At some point, residents of the city may decide the experiment with progressive prosecutors who cry when they convict someone isn’t working out so well.”

Washington Post Discovers World War II-Era Survey, Cancels the Greatest Generation. Robert Spencer — “It seems that Edward J.K. Gitre, an assistant professor of history at Virginia Tech, stumbled upon 65,000 pages of Army surveys from World War II in the National Archives. Wokescolds have now combed through them and are presenting the very worst of the “harsh views” expressed”

Florida v. Critical Race Theory. Christopher F. Rufo — “Governor Ron DeSantis takes a stand against racialist ideologies in public institutions and businesses.”

Biden Doesn’t Follow The Science, He Cherry Picks It.  Paul Mirengoff — [TDS alert! see if you can spot it] — “Biden’s unwillingness to receive input on vaccinations from those who, under standard procedure, normally provide it could undermine public confidence in the three important decisions cited by Krause and Borio. More generally, it undermines Biden’s claim that his administration “follows the science.” — “Cherry picks the science” would be a more accurate characterization.”

The indefensible approval of Pfizer and Merck drugs compared to the snubbing of ivermectin. Daniel Horowitz — “Can you come up with a non-sinister explanation as to how our government will not only approve, but purchase this untested and dangerous product while declaring war on its broader, safer, cheaper, and more established counterpart?”

Hospitals Choosing Patient Death Over Ivermectin. Joel S. Hirschhorn — “In the past year there have been over 100 court cases trying to get access to IVM for very ill patients, usually for whom hospital doctors say have little chance of surviving.” … “There seems to be inadequate use of the medical evidence given above.”

Not looking good. Change is needed. Somehow

It’s a scam cancer: the media, the law, medicine, resource management … and wondering where  it will lead but seeing nothing good when looking ahead.

From Media Bias To Outright Partisanship. John Hinderaker — “two stories illustrate how we have gone from liberal media bias in the early years of the 21st century to the open warfare on conservatism that we see today.”

The Rule of Law Has Been Replaced by One Set of Rules for the Left and Another for the Right. streiff  — “This is not right. This is not a sustainable system in any society.”

A game of three-judge-panels is no route to actual justice. Paul C. Binotto — “it’s perhaps not too outrageous to say the federal judiciary has become politically predictable.” … “This hyper-litigated method of governance, where every degree of controversy must necessarily run up to SCOTUS for final resolution is not good for the courts, and it’s a losing game for the Republic.”

The Soviet-style conditions in which January 6 arrestees molder. Andrea Widburg — “Every totalitarian regime has foul prisons in which they confine people who dared to oppose the regime.  Sadly, in the Age of Biden, it turns out that America is not at all different.” … “If we have the political class we deserve, America is a dead country walking.”

Who’s a vigilante anyway? Roger Kimball — “A Washington Post writer thinks that, circa 2021, we do not have enough government in our lives” … “In Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville warned against the advent of “democratic despotism,” which would extinguish liberty not by tyrannizing over men but by infantilizing them.”

We Need a Political Climate Change. Clarice Feldman — “Once again, the crazy greens overrode public needs, along with the bureaucrats of the Biden administration.”

Our political divide is no longer between Democrats and Republicans. Shari Forst — “The general public can boycott certain businesses but, whether the Marxists or conservatives do that, it doesn’t work. Why? Because deep down we want what we want.” … “What they need to learn is that there are no longer Democrats and Republicans in America. Instead, there are vicious Marxist anarchists and the rest of us.”

The COVID Scam: The Progressive Path to Power, and Tyranny. J. Deane  Waldman, M.D. — “Physicians who still practice medicine cannot afford to write or say the following for fear of being canceled.  As a retired physician, I cannot be coerced to keep silent with threats to my medical license or hospital privileges.”

How can this be in the U.S.A.? (Citizens yawn)

A Visit to the DC Gulag. George Parry — “This is how totalitarianism looks: The plight of America’s January 6 prisoners in pre-trial detention.”

Looks Like Dissent Is No Longer The Highest Form Of Patriotism. I & I Editorial Board — “let’s see if we can understand this line of reasoning.”

The press spent four years debasing itself with wildly misreported anti-Trump stories that then forced some outlets to issue an endless number of embarrassing corrections. They did this expressly because they wanted to subvert the will of the people and drive Trump from office. That was called protecting democracy.

Now they say that, should reporters honestly report the facts about the border crisis, the supply chain crisis, spiraling inflation, the Afghanistan debacle, the endless COVID mandates, increased Chinese and Russian aggression – to say nothing of the fact that Biden is responsible for all of them – those reporters are posing a deadly threat to democracy, because by doing so they are driving down Biden’s popularity.

During January 6 Hearing, Schiff Doctored Text Messages Between Mark Meadows And Rep. Jim Jordan. Sean Davis — “Democrat Adam Schiff doctored text messages between Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan during Monday’s Jan. 6 hearings, an investigation by The Federalist shows.” … “Schiff and his team have a long history of doctoring and fabricating evidence to show their political enemies in the worst possible light.”

DC Bar Restores Convicted FBI Russiagate Forger to ‘Good Standing’ Amid Irregularities and Leniency. Paul Sperry — “A former senior FBI lawyer who falsified a surveillance document in the Trump-Russia investigation has been restored as a member in “good standing” by the District of Columbia Bar Association even though he has yet to finish serving out his probation as a convicted felon” … “The D.C. Bar’s treatment of Clinesmith, a registered Democrat who sent anti-Trump rants to FBI colleagues after the Republican was elected, has raised questions from the start.”

The ABC’s reign of error – Part II. Geoffrey Luck — “Complain about a nakedly biased report — in this instance the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse — and the ABC’s complaints unit will invest considerable effort in explaining why black is white, up is down and why a foreign correspondent’s editorialising is actually straight-bat reporting.”

A Critical Gap in Tornado Warning Technology: Lessons of the Recent Tornado Outbreak. Cliff Mass — “My colleagues at the National Weather Service (NWS), both at the Storm Prediction Center and the local NWS forecast offices (such as Paducah, Kentucky) did an excellent job in predicting the threat and provided timely watches and warnings before the tornadoes struck.” … “I will review the forecasts/warnings and suggest that new smartphone-based warning systems are both needed and possible.  Technology that could save many lives from such severe storms.”

It’s inconceivable it could happen here

January 6 Police Beating Victim Speaks: ‘I Could Have Died’. Julie Kelly — “The first of a two-part interview with Victoria White, a Trump supporter who was beaten by police inside the tunnel on the lower west terrace of the Capitol building on January 6.”

Two positive developments pertaining to January 6.  David Zukerman — “Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has published a report on her visit to the D.C. jail, with Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) on November 4.” … “The Meadows complaint alleges that the subpoenas issued against him, and Verizon, his cell phone carrier, are invalid because Pelosi violated the terms of House Resolution 503, which provided, among other things, that the minority members would be appointed in consultation with the minority leader.”

Another Lawsuit Holds The Key To Trump’s Best Defense Against The Jan. 6 Committee. Margot Cleveland — “Because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to appoint the requisite number of members, the Jan. 6 committee is arguably invalid under its own authorizing resolution.” … “Once in focus, one can see there is a strong interest in preserving executive privilege, and none in pushing a partisan dog and donkey show trial.”

The Way Out. Larry P. Arnn — “Here are two questions pertinent to our times: (1) How would you reduce the greatest free republic in history to despotism in a short time? and (2) How would you stop that from happening? The answer to the first question has been provided in these last two disastrous years. The answer to the second has begun to emerge in recent months. Both are worthy of study.”

The Turn. Liel Leibovitz — “When I saw the left give up everything I believe in, I changed politically. You can, too.” … “If you’ve lived through it yourself, you know that The Turn doesn’t happen overnight, that it isn’t easily distilled into one dramatic breakdown moment, that it happens hazily and over time—first a twitch, then a few more, stretching into a gnawing discomfort and then, eventually, a sense of panic.”

Straight Shooters. Steve Sailer — “In “Mass Murder in America: Trends, Characteristics, Explanations, and Policy Response” in Homicide Studies, James Alan Fox and Jack Levin analyze all 448 mass murders from 2006 to 2020 and dispel some of the stereotypes that have clouded thinking upon these gruesome subjects.” … “Fox and Levin aren’t confident that gun control measures could do much to stop mass murder:”

5 Biggest Takeaways From The Latest Review Of Wisconsin’s Rigged 2020 Election. Kylee Zempel — “Wisconsin is a case study in the kind of ho-hum execution of elections that chips away at Americans’ confidence in our elections.”

What Black Lives Matter has to say about the Smollet case. neo — “I wonder how many people who say they support BLM are aware of the sort of position taken by one the organization’s LA founders.”

The ‘cabal’ that bragged of foisting Joe Biden on us must answer for his failed presidency. Glenn H. Reynolds — “Time calls this a “conspiracy to save the election,” but in truth it was a conspiracy to save the election for the Democrats. The consequences in terms of lost faith in democracy have been severe, but the worst effect is that the winning ticket was never seriously vetted by the media or the campaign process.”

The Left’s Coup Is the Overthrow of Truth. Laura Hollis — “See how this works? When Democrats game the system or cheat, it’s “saving democracy.” But when Republicans and conservatives vote in large numbers and pass laws to protect the integrity of the system, it’s a “coup.” — Propaganda this baldfaced would be laughable were it not so dangerous.”

Jussie Smollett’s Race Hoax Joins a List of HUNDREDS of Other Fake ‘Hate Crimes.’ Here Are Just 8… Victoria Taft — “There are so many fake hate crimes that several databases have been launched to keep track of them.” … “the thing you realize very quickly is that fake hate crimes occur in the wokest of woke places, such as high schools and colleges. It makes you wonder if maybe we should simply shut down the hate factories to stop the children from being scandalized by crimes they never even imagined before until someone made them up.”

 

Stunning: Facebook court filing admits ‘fact checks’ are just a matter of opinion. Thomas Lifson — “Meta’s attorneys assert that the “fact check” was an “opinion,” not an actual check of facts and declaration of facts.  Under libel law, opinions are protected from liability for libel.” … “So-called “fact-checking” is a fraud used to cover up the censorship of opinions that differ from those of the powerful Silicon Valley oligarchy.”

The Garland Archipelago

Who is the autocratic president, again, overstepping his authority? Jack Hellner — “For four years, as Trump was transferring freedom and power back to the people as fast as possible, the media described Trump as a dictator and an autocrat to intentionally mislead the public. – As Biden rules by executive orders and mandates, the media pretend he is not autocratic.”

Why The Russiagate Scandal Outranks Every Other In History. realclearwire — “Nothing comes close in size, scope or harm to the republic than the years-long effort to cripple Donald Trump’s presidency” … “If truth and justice don’t matter, what does?”

Are Media Now Taking Orders Straight From The White House? I & I Editorial Board — “The media are of course willing to be used. After all, President Joe Biden’s administration is the furthest left in our nation’s history in the scope and content of its policies.”

The idea of the media strategizing with the government to tell the public lies or slant the news is sickening, a voluntary relinquishing of their First Amendment rights. It’s also a betrayal of their obligations to their readers, who expect the truth from journalists, not biased spin.

How Obama Sabotaged the American Military. Daniel Greenfield — “Obama fundamentally transformed the military the way that he did the country.” … “Obama’s parting shot at the military cut the generals down to size by transforming them into community organizers. – His order redefined diversity as the military’s “greatest asset” and reinvented national security as a system for maximizing employment diversity by race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and every identity politics metric, but not the military metrics that truly mattered, readiness, competence, and a willingness to wage war in defense of the homeland.”

There’s an unspoken reason that Blacks are attacking Asian people. Andrea Widburg — “Blacks have for decades competed with Asians for resources in poor neighborhoods. … there’s another reason that few people like to talk about: Asians go from ghetto to suburbs in one generation and, often, from suburbs to chi-chi upper-class communities in just one or two generations.  If you think about the fact that Asians came to America broke, speaking no English, and often facing substantial prejudice, their success puts the lie to Black claims that there’s no way Blacks can achieve success in a country as racist as America.”

An open letter on the U.S. math education. Lubos Motl — “the letter is too little, too late (at least 15 years too late, I think).” … “it looks to me as if 911 people realize that things are going to deteriorate further and really quickly and they want to have a slightly better conscience, the ability to say “we tried to stop it”. Maybe but you tried about 1000 times less than you should have, and you have done much more in your life to accelerate the destruction. So if I were a member of a committee deciding whether you go to Heaven or Hell, this letter would have a very little chance to change the “Hell” verdict. But good luck.”

Feds Withheld Exculpatory Evidence In Charging Accused 1/6 Protesters. Jack Hadfield — “National File can reveal, through an exclusively obtained FBI document relaying an interview with “Person 10” of the Oath Keepers, that the organization had no plan to storm the U.S. Capitol on January 6, and the government knew this as it repeatedly charged Oath Keepers with conspiring to enter the Capitol. Now, a January 6 defense attorney says this could see entire cases dismissed.”

The Demonization of Rosanne Boyland Begins. Julie Kelly — “Boyland may not have many defenders at this point, but the truth eventually will do the talking for her.” – “With the potential release of three hours of security camera footage that recorded exactly what happened inside the lower west terrace tunnel—the location where Boyland died—on January 6, law enforcement officials could face fierce public scrutiny for their behavior that day.”

J6 Convict On TikTok: If I Can Lose 30 Lbs. During My 60 Days In Jail, It Will Be Worth It. Jordan Boyd — “Jenna Ryan was fined $1,500 and sentenced to 60 days in a Texas prison beginning early next year after she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of “parading on Capitol grounds” last month. “Sentenced to 60 days prison for 2 mins 8 sec in doorway,” Ryan’s Twitter bio states.”

Ace of Spades — “Gone. Goodbye. As stated, nothing else underscores that tragic in-your-face reality than Americans held captive in the Garland Archipelago. The cherry on top was Congressman being directly and capriciously refused access – twice – to see these people over the course of these interminable months. Finally, Louie Gohmert, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Matt Gaetz and Paul Gosar were allowed into a compound of the Garland Archipelago.” … “The findings of the report, as well as the rest of this article will disgust and enrage you.”

Reps. Greene and Gohmert Finally Met the J6 Political Prisoners: What They Saw Isn’t Pretty. Kevin Downey Jr. — “The congressional visit to the D.C. jail on November 4 unquestionably proved that there is a twotrack justice system in the United States. This two-tiered system is not based on race, violence, or conviction of crime, but politics.”

Lt. Mike Byrd Raises $122,000 on GoFundMe After Killing Unarmed US Veteran Ashli Babbitt in Cold Blood. Jim Hoft — “There were several police officers surrounding her when she was shot dead without warning. Her killer Lt. Mike Byrd then fled down the hall after he shot her dead without warning.”

Anti-Soros DA in San Diego throws the book at Antifa. Monica Showalter — “In California’s second-biggest city, San Diego, they’ve got a district attorney who thinks it’s her job to prosecute criminals.”

Rise of Violent Crime: Democrats Have a Woke Rogue Prosecutor Problem. John Kass — “The story gripping America is violent crime.” – “America won’t forget who encouraged the defunding of police and the demonization of law enforcement officers, and who weaponized it all to whip up their voters for the last election cycle.”

AAPS News November 2021 – The Heart of American Medicine. “Physicians who sit by silently while blatant anti-science and anti-logic nonsense is proffered to the public day after day, who participate in inhumane, unethical campaigns of bullying and/or human experimentation and seek to silence the dissenters who put patients first, have fallen into a grave state of moral decadence, writes Thomas Harrington in his essay “The Treason of the Healers” (https://tinyurl.com/atspf9mr).”

A Call Out to Physicians. Blaise Edwards — “do you remember the ideals you had when you entered the profession?  You too need to dig deep, look at the literature and history, and ask why we are forcing people to take an essentially useless and investigational jab causing by far the most harm in vaccine history.”

VAERS Data Indicates the Covid Vaccines Have Killed At Least 140,000 Americans. Vasko Kohlmayer — “To get an idea of just how dangerous the current Covid vaccines are, we only need to look at the numbers in the government-authorized VAERS database.”

COVID Fact-Check: “ICUs Are Filled With The Unvaccinated”. Tyler Durden’ Via Off-Guardian.org, — “ICUs are not “full” of unvaccinated covid patients, they’re not even full of covid cases. In fact, they’re not even full at all.”

‘When science mixes with politics, all we get is politics’ Robert Arvay — “To decry only the skeptics, while ignoring the egregious anti-science of many politicians, does nothing to engender trust in the institutions of science.  It does the opposite.”

Vaccine participation trophies?

The incredible danger of Biden’s America. Bookworm — “Eighty years on, we’re in an America that’s been under leftist influence through the media and the educational system for 60 years.” … “we have an administration that (1) has done away with our southern border, (2) is destroying the fossil fuel engine that powers the western world and is responsible for every one of the creature comforts we enjoy (cars, air conditioning, heat, abundant food, etc.), (3) is stoking race hatred, and (4) is destroying the economy. And that’s not even mentioning things …”

How to help J6 defendants. Sharon Caldwell — “many were arrested for simply exercising their First Amendment rights … ” … “Most of the detainees have zero criminal history and have been upstanding members of their communities for years.” Caldwell suggests the Patriot Freedom Project

Multiple Logical Fallacies Elevate COVID Vaccines Over COVID Treatments. Ted Noel — “The key offender here is something called “relative risk.” … “the Fallacy of the Excluded Middle” … “the Appeal to Authority” … “With such a Sword of Damocles overhead, few prescribers will go near IVM or HCQ. That means they can talk vaxxed or not vaxxed as if those are the only possibilities.” … “We have extremely effective protocols that anyone who gets sick should be able to use, but those bureaucrats can punish anyone who prescribes one of them.”

Comparing Vaccines. Michael Applebaum — “So, how do the COVID vaccines (grouped together for this piece) compare to other vaccines?” … “When it comes to vaccines, vaccinations, and immunity/immunization the definitions depend on the year. … Over time, about 9 years, a vaccine has gone from preventing illness to protecting from illness to producing immunity to stimulating the body’s immune response against diseases. … Next up – vaccines will get participation trophies.”

So much on the plate: abortion, election integrity, social panic, totaliarian impulses

Heavy Lifting:

A lesson to be heeded from the totalitarian past. Augusto Zimmermann — “It is increasingly clear the principle of legality is no longer regarded as important by some elements of the judicial elite, at least insofar as governments can allege the ’emergencies’ they declare justify the enactment of measures that profoundly affect our fundamental rights and freedoms. There is an unsettling precedent for the law’s endorsement of the unacceptable.”

Because the rule of law stands in frontal opposition to executive orders which express the temporary will of the government, democratic governments are necessarily bound to exercise their power according to clear, stable, and general rules of law, which must therefore be approved by the elected representatives in Parliament and receive proper public scrutiny. … 

THE PRINCIPAL force in the judicial legitimisation of the regime were not the Nazi ‘judge-monsters’, the likes of Freisler, Rothaug and Theirack, but instead the so-called ‘good’ judges who did not have enough courage to question the Nazi atrocities and gross violations of human rights.[47] By not questioning the validity of Nazi rules these judges provided the façade of legal normality to the totalitarian regime. … 

To conclude, the contributions of the German legal profession were of inestimable value in the legitimisation of the Nazi regime. The German legal profession provided justification for the murderous actions of that regime, which otherwise would have been recognised as unlawful and devoid of constitutionality. Above all, the German legal profession supported the use of emergency powers that facilitated the ultimate denial of ethics and metaphysics in conceptualisations of the law, which eventually resulted in a lack of legal basis for lawful resistance against that totalitarian regime.

Roe And Casey Were Grievously Wrong And Should Be Overruled – Cooper Et Al. == “The Supreme Court of the United States has done much over the course of American history to protect and secure our constitutional system of government, but it has been far from infallible. This Article is about two of its worst mistakes.”

Here Comes the Limited Hangout. Lee Smith — “America’s Nixonian press corps takes a page from the Watergate playbook to try and cover up its active role in the criminal Russiagate hoax” … “with Trump now safely out of office, it appears that the cover-up is now cracking wide open.” … “A comparison of the media’s role in the two biggest political scandals of the past half-century is worth the time of anyone who cares about what the next decade or so of American public life is going to look and sound like.”

Abortion emotion and other cases:

Sotomayor’s intellectual limitations on display in the oral arguments over Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. Patricia McCarthy — “She revealed a lot about her own mindset when she referred to pregnancy and perhaps parenthood as an “undue burden.” She clearly has no clue about “viability;” … compared a fetus to a “brain-dead person whose foot jerks when tapped,” … asked, “What are the advancements in medicine?” … “What is shocking is that those lefty justices and the attorneys pleading their case are so ignorant of the advances in medical science and technology that disprove every argument they present.”

Georgia Governor Validates Rossi Findings: Discredits Hand-Count “Audit”. Kevin Moncla — “We spoke with Mr. Rossi, who told us of how he found the issues and the arduous process which eventually led the Georgia governor to review his findings.” … “Sterling excused most of the problems raised as nothing more than expected trivial human error. He went on to discount the others in condescending, intentionally over-complex excuses of Georgia law, claimed Mr. Rossi was not using the correct files and alluded to his failure to understand the process.”

Will the Public Finally See What Happened in the Capitol Tunnel? Julie Kelly — “When Americans finally view the surveillance footage, January 6 will make alleged police abuse at LaFayette Square look like a day in the (federal) park.”

Nevada Judge Gets Something Right: Strikes Down Nevada Ban On Homemade Guns. Herschel Smith — “I am not making a comment on this particular judge – it just seems that they get so many decisions very wrong, and it’s nice to see someone get it right.” … “Never give up, never get disheartened, always fight the controllers at every step.  Counter their every move, all of the time.”

The Counterrevolution and the Republican Party. Jared Peterson — “Here’s an incomplete list of the reality-averse ideas and suicidal policies that America’s ruling revolutionaries have promulgated and pursued since January 20, 2021” … “It can’t be said strongly or often enough, that the destructive madness now passing as federal ideology and policy amounts to an unprecedented revolution more profoundly radical than any other in human history. It includes a redefinition of human nature and the human family; mandatory confession of evil and racism by a nation’s founding and still majority people; rejection of that country’s founding values of individual liberty and the rule of law; and replacement of merit and character with group identity as the primary basis of social reward.”

Flash Mobs’. James Dillon — “The facile assembly of large mobs of miscreants to raid retailers in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles is even more alarming than it seems.” … “We need to be shocked by a generation’s bold descent into anomy. When absence of conscience becomes commonplace, when sociopaths loiter around every corner and patrol every sidewalk, and when the fruits of a liberal society fall largely to those who least appreciate the origins and purposes of our freedoms, then promises of life, liberty, and happiness for all are in jeopardy, and democracy itself is at stake.”

Science Blah-Blah Horseshit is the Universal Language of Covid. Jeff Maurer — “And it’s why we need to be able to trust institutions” … “Institutions make mistakes; that’s inevitable. But trust waxes and wanes depending on the frequency and size of those mistakes.”

Aussies Gone Mad.  John Hinderaker — “I used to think that Australians are a freedom-loving people, but that has turned out not to be true. Crocodile Dundee is dead; Pajama Boy now rules.” … “UPDATE: This is an interview with a young woman who has just been released from the Howard Springs covid camp. There is much more at the link:”

How Much Longer for COVID Scare Tactics? Steve Feinstein — “So, here we are again: A new COVID variant has appeared on the world stage” … “With Pavlovian predictability, the Democrats have shifted into an even higher “Vaccinate Now!” overdrive gear. This new strain is being used as the latest club with which to pummel recalcitrant vaccine resisters into shame and submission.” … “it seems like a lot of people aren’t going to sit idly by while their daily rights are wrested away from them. Enough is enough. If the 2022 midterms are reasonably honest and trustworthy, we’ll find out soon.”

Bifurcating society

Third Worldizing America. Victor Davis Hanson — “Our elites, like the Third World rich, have mastered ignoring—and navigating around—the misery of others in their midst.”

AMA bringing dangerous levels of wokeness into the medical profession. Jazz Shaw — “They want to do away with “meritocracy” in admissions, claiming that having the schools accept only the best-performing students is “malignant” and “creates harm.” Perhaps even more alarmingly, they want to stress that associating race with genetics in the practice of medicine is equally evil. The result this could have on the quality and medical knowledge of the next generation of doctors and the impact on patients who receive flawed diagnoses is truly alarming. (Free Beacon)”

How the Courts and Bureaucracy Destroy the Constitution. Patrick J. Gibbs — “It has been building up to this point for the past 250 years. The U.S. Constitution was originally designed to divide the powers of the federal government among its three different branches (Congress, Executive, and Judiciary). The 10th Amendment to the Constitution went further and reserved to the States respectively, or to the people “the powers not delegated to the United States.” This separation of powers was intended to prevent a consolidation of power that would inevitably lead to the end of representative government.”

If we don’t stop the monster, it threatens to eat our Constitution and spit out a form of government unrecognizable to our Founders.

Refugees from Communist Countries Are The Canaries In The Coal Mine. Armando Simón — “All the signs are there. Put it all together, add 2+2, and you come out with 4—regardless of what American leftists now claim, like Obrien in 1984. Yet, I know of quite a few people who want to believe that the warnings are an exaggeration, alarmist (even when the enemy openly proclaim a Communist future), or who fervently wish that it would simply go away, who doggedly stick their heads in the sand, who want nothing more than to lead a quiet life. “As long as it doesn’t affect me” “Yes, I’m worried, but it’s going to be all right” are excuses that I have heard. They have no desire to learn more, to get involved, and even less to fight for their country. When it’s too late, they will be picked off, one by one.”

Biden legal defeats rapidly piling up across the nation on broad array of policy fronts. Aaron Kliegman — “On issues ranging from vaccine mandates to immigration policy and racial preferences, federal courts across the country have repeatedly found the Biden administration to be pushing policies which violate the Constitution.”

Federal Judge Expands Healthcare Worker Vaccine Mandate Injunction to Apply Nationally. Sundance — “with these rulings piling up against the White House; and with more and more Americans ignoring the fear porn being attempted with Omicron; we can expect the executive branch to go even stronger in the direction of more punitive punishment using federal mandates.”

Corrupt Politicians Overseeing Jan 6 Committee Are Afraid of the Truth – Bannon’s Subpoenas Scare Them to Death. Joe Hoft — “Americans deserve to know what actions Congress took before, during, and after the January 6th protest at the Capitol.” … “And why are Congress and the DOJ withholding information from those they prosecute who have every right to this information?”

DOJ Prosecutors Using Grand Jury to Subpoena Financial Records of 2020 Election Audit Groups. Sundance — “Remember, when the political agencies under the umbrella of the Fourth Branch of Government (CIA, FBI and DOJ) use their aligned media they follow a particular pattern of using New York Times, Politico and the Washington Post to build the framework of their investigative narratives.” … “The Fourth Branch of Government will activate against any individual, entity or group who is perceived as a threat.”

Smashing and Grabbing Blue America into Ruin. J. Robert Smith — “Zealots can’t be reasoned or compromised with; they aren’t open to either, anyway.  They won’t stop unless they’re defeated and pushed to the margins.  If progressive zealotry prevails, and progressives succeed at imposing their worldview on us, the consequences will be similar to what’s happening in dreary San Francisco and Chicago.  Main streets in our communities will become mean streets.  Americans of good sense and goodwill can’t permit that to happen.”

The Looting Will Stop When Store Owners Can Shoot On Sight. Parker Beauregard — “At once ascribing poverty, immoral historical legacies, and contemporary systemic racism, we are supposed to believe that what is happening is actually a form of justice. – Nothing could be further from the truth.” … “It should be as simple as saying that stealing is wrong. If it is not yours, don’t take it. If you want something, earn it. ”

Kamala Harris To DOJ: Hands Off Black Supremacists. Paul Mirengoff — “Leftists like Kamala Harris want us to believe that white supremacism is a major threat to America. What about black supremacism? To Harris and the left, it’s a myth, and worrying about it is racist.”

The Myth of White Supremacy Is Getting People Killed, But the Media Isn’t Telling You About It. Kevin Downey Jr. — “The left-wing media will continue to cry wolf over white nationalist boogeymen. Joy Reid, a black woman who went to Harvard and makes millions of dollars at MSNBC, will bang that drum all the way to the bank. Racism sells, even when it doesn’t exist (Psssst Jussie Smollett). And if 62 white people get run over in the process, who cares? Reid will just ignore it, and if pressed, she might justify it by recommending white people read one of the ten or so books about Emmett Till. Is “racial revenge” her goal?”

How Culture Got to the Point Where Saturday Night Live is Promoting Abortion in a Clown Outfit. Natasha Crain — “I break down the psychological process of moral buy-in that secular culture must go through to gain acceptance of a changed moral position: awareness, normalization, then celebration.” … “Christians, don’t be surprised. Secular culture will undoubtedly continue to “clown around” with evil. It’s actually quite predictable. – It’s the modus operandi for suppressing truth in unrighteousness.”

10 Things You Need to Know About Today’s Oral Arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Chris Queen — “Oral arguments wrapped at lunchtime, but there’s so much that happened. It’s hard sometimes for laypeople to wade through the legalese, but I’ve done the hard work for you, dear reader. Here are 10 things you need to know about today’s oral arguments in Dobbs.”

Justice Kavanaugh Just Boiled the Abortion Debate Down to Its Most Fundamental Core. Larry O’ConnorLarry O’Connor| — “When deciding between the interests of a pregnant woman and the interests of an unborn child, “You can’t accommodate both interests. You have to pick.”

So You Say You Want a Revolution? Sen. Jeanne Shaheen Issues a Warning to the Supreme Court. J. Turley — “these threats are an attack on the very concept of impartial judicial review.  “When you talk about destruction” of our traditions of judicial review, as the Beatles declared in 1968, “you can count me out.”

The COVID con is the ’76 swine flu fiasco on steroids. Selwyn Duke — “I came across a 1979 60 Minutes segment on the propaganda surrounding the 1976 swine flu scare.  … watching the segment drives home how striking the parallels between the two disease scares are.  Exaggerations of the bugs’ severity, media propaganda and fear-mongering, an effort to vaccinate the whole nation, serious vaccine-coincident side-effects, and an apparent government cover-up of the latter were all elements of the ’76 fiasco just as they epitomize what’s occurring today.”

The COVID Vaccine Failure. Jamaica Plain — “The CDC narrative on COVID is simply put: (1) the mask is your best defense, (2) COVID is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and (3) vaccines are our only exit strategy. However, whenever their narrative falls apart, the emphasis shifts, cover-up lies become bolder, and dissenting science is censored.” … “As Americans, we can either be subject to medical political tyranny or stand for freedoms derived by our God-sanctioned morality. We need to decide whether to fight for our country founded as “a city on a hill” by the courageous who love freedom. Our alternative is a biosecurity state that promises us safety, tells only noble truths, and censors all dissenters. Now is the time to decide: a house divided cannot stand.”

It’s ugly out there

On The Use Of Fear As A Government Tactic. Mark Wauck — “Perhaps a public debate on governmental lying and manipulation through the purveying of fear is about to begin. God willing, it will.”

Sentencing Of Jan. 6 “Shaman” Jacob Chansley Was Excessive. Ameer Benno — “At sentencing, Judge Lamberth reportedly said of Chansley, “He made himself the image of the riot, didn’t he? For good or bad, he made himself the very image of this whole event.” But media coverage should have had nothing to do with the sentencing.” … “It’s apparent that Biden’s DOJ viewed Chansley as the personification of Jan. 6 itself.  That’s why, instead of recommending a sentence that actually fit the evidence, Chansley’s prosecutors urged that the court adopt baseless sentencing enhancements.” … “Lamberth shamefully allowed media coverage, rather than the facts of the case and the applicable law, to shape his rulings regarding Chansley’s pretrial detention and sentence.”

Yes, you’re right: The Department of Justice has a double-standard. Andrea Widburg — “The surest sign that you’re living in a corrupt country is that people are not treated equally under the law.  Those who are politically disfavored are denied justice, while those whom the government favors walk away from their crimes.”

Stirring the Pot – The Salvation Army Is Bearing False Witness in Failed Spin Effort. Brad Slager — “So just how are those outside the SA making the claims being called wrong when the Salvation Army delivered documents making those very claims? This seems to be the tactic from the group regarding this controversy: insist that critics are not telling the truth, and scrub the evidence proving them correct if possible. Violating the Ninth Commandment in order to clear your image is not a good look going into the holiest of seasons.”

Was Kyle Rittenhouse Foolish? David Henderson — “What came out at the trial was that Rittenhouse really did go to Kenosha, Wisconsin to defend people’s property after seeing rioters inflict substantial damage on various businesses. His father lived in Kenosha. He had a job in Kenosha. Presumably he knew a number of people in Kenosha whom he cared about. I’ve thought about other young people who have put themselves in situations where their lives are at risk in order to defend people whom, and property which,  they care about.” There is interesting behavior to note by the cynics launch in the comments with nitpicking, selective perception, warping the meanings of words, and denial of reality.

Cruz Drops the Question That Just Skewers Fauci. Nick Arama — ““It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul tweeted. Indeed, it’s dangerous when you have a bureaucrat in such a position, wielding such power, thinking he is unquestionable. — Then, Cruz responded and completely took Fauci apart. In lawyer-like fashion, Cruz eviscerated Fauci in a simple clear way in five tweets.”

Resisting COVID Tyranny. Richard Moss — “History will judge this to be medicine’s darkest hour. It will rank among the worst of medical atrocities.  What is telling and tragic is that the rot has spread not only to its medicine’s commanding institutions, but to local hospitals and medical staffs.  But a Medical Freedom movement that rejects such tyranny and actual “misinformation” is forming.”

Those Ugly Climate Models. I & I Editorial Board — “The narrative that man is cooking his planet like an overdone Thanksgiving turkey has survived only because the media have propped it up. But we’re confident that eventually the story will collapse. The evidence does not favor the climate alarmists.” … “Reality will ultimately catch up to the climate hyperbole. And soon, we hope. The media and the politicians and activists whipping up and perpetuating fear are in line for a reckoning.”

The Wrong Takeaway

Losing Confidence in the Pillars of Our Civilization. Victor Davis Hanson — “Never in U.S. history … ” — “Conservatives now have lost their former traditional confidence in the administration of justice, in the intelligence and investigatory agencies, in the nation’s military leadership, in the media, and the criminal justice system. – No one yet knows what the effect will be of half the country losing faith in the very pillars of American civilization.”

The Academic Cover-Up of Massacre Map Defects.Michael Connor — “The problem with the Massacre Map, as with the Dark Emu hoax, is how to correct errors and distortions when those who should be expected to police these things and defend truth in history support the distorters. Instead, as I have learnt, the academics’ solution to plagiarism, inaccuracy and invention is yet more plagiarism, inaccuracy and invention”

Thanksgiving: a Day of Indigenous Mourning for American land? Walter Olson — “as I wrote in 2011 in the ‘Schools for Misrule’ chapter on Indian land claims, the historical premise that Indian land in the U.S. was by and large stolen by the white man is false”

A Requiem For The Dancing Grannies. Jayme Metzgar — “If heaven is more real than earth, joy is more realistic than despair.” … “I waited a day before forcing myself to read about the dreadful slaughter at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. When I finally did, I learned that the dead were mostly members and supporters of this troupe of grandmothers, who dance at parades and events for the delight of their neighbors.”

Massacre of the Innocents. Ace of Spades — 

Yes, the death toll from what is absolutely a bona fide terrorist attack, and most likely spurred on by the acquittal of American hero (reluctant as he may consider himself, but oh hell yes) Kyle Rittenhouse, has risen to six with the death of an 8-year-old boy named Jackson Sparks. To be clear, Jackson did not pass counterfeit bills at a convenience store, nor tried to swallow half a kilo of crystal meth before the cops could search his vehicle. Nor was he high on purple drank while pounding someone’s head into the pavement. Nor was he a drug dealer’s gun moll caught in the crossfire of a police raid. Nor did he bullrush a police officer after punching him in the face and trying to wrestle his gun away to avoid arrest. Nor was he a pedophile or domestic abuser with a rap sheet the size of a phone book. No. Jackson Sparks was guilty of one thing and one thing only: being white. In topsy-turvy, Orwellian Ape City, that is a capital offense. Say his name, you bastards. Say his name.

The Media’s Chickens Come Home to Roost in Wisconsin. Matt Keener — “Lies about Blake or that incident get repeated to this day” … “There are consequences for incessantly demonizing people or teaching others they have a right to hate or to riot”

The child is dancing—bopping around in front of her family to the tune of the marching band passing behind her, as the pompom on her Winter stocking cap bounces right along with her, blissfully unaware that she narrowly avoided death or serious injury until after Darrell Brooks has already sped past her in his red Ford Escape towards other parade attendees and participants.

Kenosha Prosecutors Exemplify the Problem with America’s Justice System. Conrad Black — “The Rittenhouse case avoided the curse of the American justice system; it certainly did not exonerate or vindicate it.” … “Writing as someone who is unfortunately very familiar with it, the American criminal justice system is an abomination: a mockery of impartial justice and a conveyor belt to the bloated and corrupt prison system in which millions of innocent or grossly over-sentenced Americans are ground to powder every generation.”

What Can We Conclude From The Rittenhouse Saga? America Needs A Lesson In Civics. Ron Nutter — “What is distressing is that, after the verdict was delivered, there are so many who are rejecting the basic symbols of American society. It does not bode well for our future.” … “What they want is not reintegration of those in conflict, but a continuation of the conflict and  schism.” … “perhaps, seeing now the strife that CNN, MSNBC, and progressive politicians encourage and validate, there is now an antithetical trend toward learning about and defending our civic social symbols. Our courts will be rendered social eunuchs if that does not happen.”

That Gun Tax the IL Supreme Court Shot Down Was Reinstated.Matt Vespa — “They’ll soon start slapping taxes on what types of speech they might find disagreeable. They’ll try anything. They’ll do anything. This is the Democratic Party.”

Looting for Amusement and Luxury Goods. Abraham H. Miller — “The media has omitted the race of the perpetrators, a policy that ironically makes race even more salient.” … “An organized criminal enterprise is not the consequence of episodic rage, but of a purposeful undertaking. And before we get too hung up on the race of the perpetrators, we should consider that a lot of different kinds of people will be buying these luxury goods on social media, knowing they are stolen.”

Thoughts From The Ammo Line. Scott Johnson — “Wouldn’t you think that the “leading intellectuals” of a historically disadvantaged group would look around them, carefully note what habits of mind lead to success, and urge everyone within their sphere of influence to emulate these habits?”

Well, most of the Confederate statues are gone now. Did that convince the 70 percent of unwed fathers to marry one of the mothers of their offspring? Did it inspire some young black man to aspire to dental school or a plumber’s apprenticeship instead of joining a drug gang? The sad truth is that if a magic wand could be waved over the land to erase any and all negative or “racist” thoughts in the minds of white people, not one thing would change. We aren’t the problem; so we can’t be the solution. No matter how hard we try to be “Less White” in order to level the playing field.

ROSEANNE BOYLAND: Died On Jan 6th … Was She Beaten To Death By Capitol Police? Wes Walker — “Depending on which narrative you accept, Ms. Boyland was either crushed under the weight of the pressing MAGA crowd, died from some kind of a drug overdose, or was knocked down and clubbed by a Capitol Hill cop.”

Give Thanks to the Green Revolution. Alex Tabarrok — “the Green Revolution simultaneously prevented many people from starving but also reduced total population because of reduced fertility. The Green Revolution also meant that less land was used for farming not more.”

Global warming scare-mongers refuted as Arctic ice growing, on track to be the most ice in 2 decades. Thomas Lifson — “as with countless other prophesies of climate doom, they were alarmist BS”

With Low Vaccination Rates, Africa’s Covid Deaths Remain Far below Europe and the US. Ryan McMaken — “disaster for Africa has long been predicted for several reasons even beyond the availability of vaccines. For instance, it is known that lockdowns are especially impractical in the poorest parts of the world. This is because populations in places with undeveloped economies can’t simply sit at home and live off savings or debt. Rather, these people must go out into the world and earn a living on a day-to-day basis. Starvation is the alternative. Moreover, much of this work is done in the informal economy, so enforcing lockdowns becomes especially difficult.” … “But Africa hasn’t gotten the bloodbath that was promised”

A few questions to frighten companies who terrorize their employees into getting jabbed. Sandra Friedemann — “Why does “fully vaccinated” no longer mean “fully vaccinated”?” … “If these vaccines are so effective, why are we still masking up and social distancing?” … “By submitting to tyranny, private companies picked their side, raising an important question for many of us: how will they gracefully back off from that stance now that they’ve committed? — Odds are, they’ll double down, pull back the hammer on that virtual gun”

Heap big medicine splattered all over

The Left’s Long Creep Through the Schools. Kevin Donnelly — “the reality is that the barbarians are no longer merely attacking the gates, they have now taken the citadel.” … “Schools are a primary focus of cultural-Left activists and fellow travellers in the fight to reshape society in their utopian image.” … “Underpinning a cultural-Left approach to education is the belief that knowledge is a social construct employed by those in control to enforce their dominance.”

Heap Big Medicine Man. John Hinderaker – “From Canada comes this ridiculous story about an academic grant to study pre-scientific methods of preventing cancer. One could say that the only important thing in this story is the dollar figure: $1.2 million. Academic institutions exist in large part as slush funds to funnel cash into the hands of liberal constituencies.”

Thugocracy: Science in the Postmodern World (Roger Pielke Jr. as victim). Richard W. Fulmer — “Today, thugs have taken over much of our politics, many of our universities, and much of our science. Their response to dissent is not to assemble facts and logic to support their claims but to slander, intimidate, and muzzle the opposition.”

Stunning good news from Chile — and not just for them, but for us. Monica Showalter — perhaps the tide is turning?

The worst kind of domestic terrorism. John F. Di Leo — “domestic terror has a particularly wicked dimension, because it’s not foreign enemies but our own neighbors who conduct it.” … “We have state’s attorneys and district attorneys all over America who refuse to prosecute most crimes… who refuse to ask judges for stiff sentences when they do prosecute… who happily plea-bargain cases down” … “If you’re looking for the worst kind of domestic terrorism, I sure can’t think of a worse one than flinging open the prison gates – whether by lack of effort or by executive order – and consciously setting such criminals loose.”

Looting Comes To The Suburbs. John Hinderaker — “Cities like Portland, Minneapolis and San Francisco have been devastated by rioting and looting. But smug suburban liberals haven’t seemed to mind much, as long as crime was confined to urban centers like Minneapolis and San Francisco, where, on Friday night, Union Square was looted. But what will they think when disorder strikes closer to home?”

The Rittenhouse Trial Underscores the Left’s Determination to Eliminate the Natural Right of Self-Defense. Steve McCann — “as there is a natural right of self-preservation, man has the right and duty to defend himself against transgressors, including the state, that would deny, abrogate, or unlawfully seize his property.”

Did Capitol Police murder someone other than Ashli Babbitt? Andrea Widburg — video suggests the affirmative

Time for Another Epidemic Summary. Kevin Roche — “Respiratory viruses have been around forever and we periodically have epidemics from them, influenza being the most common example.  And we should know by now that our ability to stop or control those epidemics is very limited.” … “Worst of all has been the terror campaign and the lies and misinformation.” … “We will survive all the virus can throw at us.  Humanity will be fine.  I am not sure we can survive the continued irrationality and deadliness of the government response.”

another chapter in the same book, here they go again

 

The Left’s War on Faith. Mervyn Bendle — “Culture at the Heart: Western Civilisation is in crisis, and at the heart of the crisis is culture. … all around us the forces of barbarism continue their relentless ‘long march through the institutions’ of Western Civilisation, corrupting and degrading them as they go.” — Historical Propaganda – Denying the Transcendent – Re-building the World – Destruction & Desecration – Descent into Terror – Militant Atheism – Soviet Atheism – Brutal Suppression – Scientific Atheism – Persecution – Public Reaction – Death Toll – Evangelical Atheists – Different Gods – Dereliction

None of this is accidental, of course. It is the contemporary outcome of the systematic atheistic propaganda that has been a core component of the Leftist agenda for a quarter of a millennium, as even a basic familiarity with history reveals, i.e., an historical understanding not derived from the bogus narrative of Western mendacity imposed on the minds of students in NSW schools and reinforced in crucial HSC exams. … 

But how can people learn from history if they are never taught history, but instead are fed bogus Leftist propaganda? This is why the Culture Wars are so important and why those who care about Western Civilisation must insist that their elected representatives properly exercise their responsibilities in contesting the forces of collectivist barbarism.

Get Woke, Empty The Pews. John Hinderaker — “Why is the ELCA failing? One obvious reason is that it has made clear that Christians who are not hard-core liberals–that is, the overwhelming majority of the population–are not welcome.”

Hanson on Citizenship. Terry Scambray — “Defining terms is always a good place to begin a conversation and Victor Davis Hanson’s The Dying Citizen. How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America (Basic Books) weaves a rich definition of citizenship into his discussion of the current threats to this profoundly Western idea.”

A Brief History Of West African Slavery. ICE-9 [The Burning Platform] — “The lucrative Angolan slave trade not only flourished under female African leadership, but grew scientific and efficient and continued unabated until the Portuguese crown outlawed the colonial slave trade in 1869.  However, avarice and ingenuity always prevail so after this slavery prohibition a vibrant slave black market continued unabated as abolition only served to drive up the price of slaves and therefore the incentive to procure them in the field.  These lucrative smuggling operations from Angola lasted up until the day its primary customer Brazil abolished slavery in 1888.”

The woke will never mention the 800 years of an East African slave trade conducted by Arab merchants up and down the Indian Ocean coast.  The woke won’t utter a word regarding present day slavery across the Sahel countries of Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad, and Sudan.  One hears only silence from the woke when one mentions the “Systemic Ethniscism” that permeates every Bantu nation where wealth and power are concentrated into the hands of a dominant ethnic group.

Post-election swindles in Pennsylvania: there they go again. Lynne Lechter — “Against this abundant one-party control, and other states similarly governed, the world wants to move on from Donald Trump.  The mainstream media and its cohorts deem January 6 as emblematic of “the big lie.”  “False” they bellow, “Biden won.”   Whether one is pro- or anti-Trump, election shenanigans in Pennsylvania were brazenly accomplished.  Again.”

Scott Adams: Then And Now. Mark Wauck — “I think a lot of people have hit a wall.” … “Not that I was gullible before, or slow to catch on to the various hoaxes that have been perpetrated by the Power Elite, but I guess—a bit like Adams—I resisted the notion that it could be THAT bad.”

Heroes and Zeros: The Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict. Clarice Feldman — “If you want to end violence, act to prevent it instead of doing what you did do — encourage it by applauding it, contributing to organizations that foment it, and removing law enforcement — as you and the mayor of Kenosha did — when riots take place.”

Six Things We Learned From The Kyle Rittenhouse Trial. The BSC Team — “While voters bucked the media narratives against conservative candidates and conservative causes in early November, in the case of the jury they had to overcome not just a year of blatant falsehoods but direct intimidation. When a major broadcasting studio tasks journalists with following a secret jury bus, that is pure evil. However, these twelve Americans stood up to the threat of mob violence and personal attacks and vindicated young Kyle on all counts. — Something feels different in America right now”

Kyle Rittenhouse Did NOT Get a Fair Trial. Selwyn Duke — “Rittenhouse, and America, were failed by the perfidious prosecutor; the pusillanimous judge; the malevolent media; the depraved Democrat Party; and, to a lesser extent, the dithering jury. — Kyle Rittenhouse was, praise God, acquitted. But he did not get a fair trial.”

A meme sums up 90% of the left’s Kyle Rittenhouse lies. Bookworm — “Mayer made this statement and it’s being wildly shared all over social media. What’s important about it is that every fact within it is wrong.” … “I have a suggestion for confronting them. A wise man I knew used to say of interpersonal squabbles, “Don’t get furious; get curious.” … “Politely push them to share with you the facts supporting their claims. And if they return with provably incorrect “facts,” politely respond with irrefutable truth. Lots of them are going to be sundowners who cannot recognize the truth but others will be like Bari Weiss and realize that they’ve been the victims of a giant con.”

Is There a Chorus Building for DOJ to Look Into Possible Federal Charges Against Kyle Rittenhouse? Shipwreckedcrew — “Derek Chauvin was indicted on federal charges in Minnesota after a Motion For New Trial was filed following his conviction in state court.” … “And this is what I is fear the messaging might be about: 18 U.S.C. Sec. 239:” … “Those leading the Biden DOJ have already proven themselves willing to be the “Storm Troopers” for left-wing interest groups. Pursuing a prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse would simply be another chapter in the same book.”

Skid marks on the robes of justice, Whither honor?

Is the Air Force Academy Honor Code Dead? Doug Goodman and Scott Sturman — “Under real world military conditions, trust is an essential requirement, not a debatable philosophical principle.” … “The Honor Code is broken, as well as the academy’s ability to accomplish its primary mission of training career officers of character.”

A Border Sheriff’s Reality. Rick Fuentes — “It is Democrat wordsmithing to imply that the Biden’s border strategy is humanitarian.  To claim that moral high ground is antithetical to its true purpose, to expand the blue electorate at the terrible cost of enriching the drug cartels, endorsing human trafficking and child abuse, killing hundreds for their efforts, and putting thousands more into forced labor, poverty, and crime on America’s streets.  It is a willful crisis of humanity and an insult to all Americans if the Biden regime believes it can varnish it over with a few teleprompted speeches and scripted pressers.”

Judge Demands Answers From New York Times Over Publishing Project Veritas’ Privileged Docs. Scott Hounsell — “The New York Times now has until November 23rd, next Tuesday, to provide cause for why they published privileged attorney-client documents.”

knowing that they are currently under the demands of the defamation suit, they still figured it was appropriate to not only take possession of illegally-obtained privileged information but to then also publish those privileged documents. To know those risks, and to know that the action you’re taking is illegal, shows a stunning level of incompetence, or a flat-out effort to create further damages.  In a suit that requires intent, like defamation, handing your opposition an exhibit of your intent, is never a smart play.

It’s time for all of us to join Joshua’s Army. Bookworm — “Joshua destroyed Jericho’s walls with the sound of righteousness. By using truth against leftism, we can be Joshua’s Army in America.” … “Pushing back doesn’t mean engaging in illegal conduct. Pushing back means being like Joshua and the Israelites and making a noise. It’s time we stop getting along by going along with all the casual leftism that affects every aspect of our lives.”

You can be a paralyzed doublethinker or you can be a liberated truth-speaker. And again, you don’t have to speak the truth in such a way that you feel compelled to put your affairs in order and prepare for the FBI to knock down your door. Be honest, be polite, be respectful, be legal — and make the leftists in your world defend their positions, even while letting the doublethinkers around you know that (a) truth exists and (b) they’re not alone. By doing that, you will be a member of Joshua’s Army. 

Whistleblower Videos Capture Pennsylvania Election Officials Destroying Evidence. Margot Cleveland — “A complaint alleges Pennslyvania election officials were tearing tapes ‘into pieces and placing … them into the trash stating they will have a campfire to burn the data.'” … “the videos may not be enough for those so blinded by their distaste for Trump that they cannot see the real threat to our democracy: elections without integrity and an electorate unable to trust the official outcome.”

Ron DeSantis’s fiery statement about true conservative governance. Andrea Widburg — “the question is, do we actually have a constitution that constrains people like Biden or is it just when he loses patience, he can do whatever the hell he wants to?”

Rittenhouse

How Unethical Were the Prosecutors Trying to Put Kyle Rittenhouse in Prison? Let Us Count the Ways… Victoria Taft — “Thomas Binger and Jim Kraus left a skid mark on the robes of justice. They put a Kraus-sized turd on Lady Justice’s scale. And they almost put an 18-year-old in prison because he fought for his life and took out three of their “heroes,” as Binger called them.”

Crazed Reactions To The Rittenhouse Verdict.  John Hinderaker — “Rittenhouse took the law into his own hands? No, the law provides a right of self-defense. It was the rioters who attacked Rittenhouse who took the law into their own hands. And did Rittenhouse “walk free from any accountability”? Not at all. He was prosecuted and held to account before a jury, which, based on the evidence, acquitted him.” — but still a litany of prominent politicians and celebrities “not happy with the verdict”.

HOT TAKES: Leftists Have a Collective Mental Breakdown Over Rittenhouse Verdict. Jeff Charles — “the Twitterverse is full of hot takes from aggrieved, virtue-signaling leftists whining about how America is such a racist nation because it did not convict a man who clearly defended himself from three aggressors. Here are some gems for your viewing pleasure.”

Kenosha Crowd Reacts to Rittenhouse Verdict…and It’s Not What the Lying Media Told You Would Happen. Megan Fox — “Not only is the crowd overwhelmingly cheering for Rittenhouse and his right to self-defense, but the majority of the cars driving by were honking their horns in support of the verdict. This reaction gives me hope for America. Perhaps Americans do understand why our Constitutional rights are still important and why the mob cannot be allowed to have power over the law.”

Pandemic Panic

Suffering For Telling The Truth. Herschel Smith — “Way to stay classy, Houston Methodist Hospital.  A Twitter post.  You deal with a firing of a respected health care provider by issuing a Twitter post, a child’s forum of ten second sound bites for those with no attention span and little intelligence.”

Fauci Finally Admits Vaccines Don’t Protect Against Serious Covid or Death. Vasko Kohlmayer — “This is what data from Israel and other highly vaccinated countries has indicated for some time now.”

Vaxxocalypse Now. Janet Levy — “My first encounter with vaxxport tyranny took place last week at a Los Angeles gym, where I have been a member for two years.  Abiding by an edict from the governor of California, the reception staff asked to see my vaccination card or a QR code before allowing me access to the facilities.”

Shameless ignorance, a path to perdition

Brief Heads Up: Schiff And The Death Of Shame In America. Mark Wauck — “We don’t all live in a post-shame era, and distinctions do need to be drawn in that regard. We need an accounting that is thorough and honest in all respects, as well as one that gives credit where it’s due.”

The Steele Dossier and the End of Shame In American Politics. J. Turley — “The problem with shame is that it requires a sense of guilt over one’s actions. In the age of rage, there appear fewer and fewer actions that are beyond the pale for politics. Take Adam Schiff and the Steele dossier.”

In Brief: The Myth of ‘Fact-Checking’ citing Mark Hemingway — “How Facebook created the world’s largest censorship operation.”

Something very peculiar is happening with our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Andrea Widburg — “why now, of all times, is the Biden administration selling off America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to Asia?”

Nick Sandmann reaches out to Kyle Rittenhouse. neo — “Sandmann has learned more in a few years through the crucible of his personal experience than most people learn in a lifetime. He writes:”

Kyle Rittenhouse, Both Right and Righteous, Patrick Buchanan — “While Rittenhouse’s decision to go to Kenosha may have been unwise, it was also unselfish and, indeed, brave. He was risking his life in a riot to defend another man’s property and do his civic duty in a situation of lawlessness. He could have stayed home, as almost everyone in Kenosha did that night, while their city was burned and pillaged.”

Goal Of Rittenhouse Prosecution and Media Manipulation Is To Render “Citizens Not Being Able To Defend Themselves”. William A. Jacobson — “t’s similar to so many other cases. The media immediately sets a narrative, a narrative which is hostile to the defendant in a highly politicized case. It happened in the George Zimmerman case, and has happened in multiple cases and you can’t get rid of that narrative.”

If you can’t defend yourself when someone’s beating you in the head with the skateboard, if you can’t defend yourself when they’re running at you while you’re on the ground and they lower their Glock pistol towards your head from three feet away, if you can’t defend yourself when someone who’s already that night threatened to kill you, if he caught you alone, and is now reaching for your gun, if you can’t defend yourself in those circumstances and the full weight of the state and the full weight of the media is going to come down on you, then we are in a really bad place.

The Media’s Verdict on Kyle Rittenhouse. Bari Weiss — “Why so many got this story so wrong.” … “This wasn’t a disinformation campaign waged by Reddit trolls or anonymous Twitter accounts. It was one pushed by the mainstream media and sitting members of Congress for the sake of an expedient political narrative—a narrative that asked people to believe, among other unrealities, that blocks of burning buildings somehow constituted peaceful protests.”

From George Zimmerman to Kyle Rittenhouse: A Decade of Woke Misrule. Jack Cashill — “Beginning with the Sacco and Vanzetti case in the 1920s, the left lied to conceal the guilt of the guilty. … No longer content to conceal the guilt of the guilty, they lied now to conceal the innocence of the innocent.”

Although he has learned through trial and error to keep a low profile, Zimmerman has been quietly cheering on Rittenhouse from the sidelines. Better than anyone, he knows that wokeism is the one religion that offers neither mercy nor redemption—even to the innocent.

‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley Gets 41 Months in Prison. Robby Soave — “Plus: Detroit schools close on Fridays just because, Scott Alexander offers a plausible ivermectin theory, and more…” … “Chansley felt he had no choice but to accept the plea deal that came with that 41-month sentence, of course, because he couldn’t risk a trial that could send him to prison for 20 years. This is the sad reality of the criminal justice system: Defendants often plead guilty in order to avoid absurdly long mandatory sentences, and are thus denied the opportunity to actually attempt to prove their innocence before a jury of their peers.”

Terror in the Capitol Tunnel. Julie Kelly — “The D.C. Medical Examiner’s Office concluded Rosanne Boyland died of a drug overdose but that autopsy result is highly suspicious.”

Nichols’ account is detailed in an appalling new court filing that confirms what American Greatness has reported for months: on January 6, D.C. Metro and Capitol police assaulted nonviolent protesters with explosive devices, rubber bullets, tear gas, and in some cases, their own fists and batons. A tunnel on the lower west side of the Capitol building became a dangerous—and, likely for at least one protester, deadly—battle scene as police viciously attacked American citizens on the “hallowed” grounds of the U.S. Congress.

A Class Act Expelled From School. A Victorian Teacher — “The lunacy of it all is that the protected are demanding that the unprotected partake of the protection that the protected have used, because the protection that the protected have used isn’t protecting them from either the protected or the unprotected. It’s like something out of a Monty Python movie.”

For Those Who Think the Vaccines Will End the Epidemic. Kevin Roche — “All the damage we did made no difference, just imposed a lot of self-inflicted wounds.  Time to stop that.”
