Propaganda is a fog in the path to truth about reality – Powerful forces are allied against the truth

ABC News’ Terrible, Scary, And Inaccurate Vaccine Headline. Josh Bloom — “It is shoddy reporting like this that is guaranteed to confuse and frighten people who are hesitant to take the shot, either because it’s a new technology or worried that the development was rushed, so the shot is unsafe.”

’60 Minutes’ Ignores Democrat Governors’ Scandals, Invents One About DeSantis. Mollie Hemingway — “As with the pushing of anti-Bush forgeries, CBS News continues to push partisan propaganda at the expense of the truth.”

“As with the pushing of anti-Bush forgeries, CBS News continues to push partisan propaganda at the expense of the truth. It is unclear whether its propaganda will keep its viewers from knowing the truth about Florida’s handling of COVID, much less the truth of what has happened in hard lockdown states such as New York and California.

Can We Finally Stop Pretending that George Floyd’s Death Had Anything to Do with Racism? William Sullivan. “The lie that George Floyd was murdered by racist police officers in Minneapolis has made its way around the world several times over, leaving countless violent riots and more than $2 billion in property damages in its wake, but it seems that the truth is finally putting on its shoes.”

“perhaps saddest of all, we can expect that radical leftist politicians, celebrities, the media, and woke corporations will continue to be complicit in the promotion of that deadly and destructive lie, and will continue to placate the rioters committing these horrible atrocities by defending their actions as justifiable outrage.

Powerful forces are allied against the truth, and are actively seeking to silence anyone espousing it.

Biden White House Wildly Misleads Public On COVID Vaccinations. I & I Editorial Board — “The Biden administration is playing up its role in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, big time.”

Donald J. Trump: Joe Biden’s Best Friend. Victor Davis Hanson — “The myth of Biden the healer, and Trump the cruel divider, got Biden elected. But the fantasy that Biden had the answers to problems that Trump created is a far greater—and more dangerous—delusion.”

Poll Finds Almost Half Of Americans Want Vaccine Passports. Steve Watson at Summit News [via ZeroHedge]. A Rasmussen poll has revealed that almost half of Americans support the introduction of vaccine passports in order to get “back to normal.” … “The passport system is also being pushed by the mainstream media, with the likes of the L.A. Times declaring that vaccine passports are a “good idea” because they will help the Biden administration “break the resistance down.” … DocShellshock at Twitter: “So 44% of America has bought into tyrannical fascism. Got it.”

The totalitarians’ Covid con unintentionally explained by CNN public health ‘expert’. Thomas Lifson — “Too much freedom is a bad thing because it limits the ability of the state to coerce its subjects into behavior they otherwise would resist. That’s the basic message explained to Chris Cuomo by a professor of public health policy that CNN favors with its airtime.”

nuclear level of hypocrisy – Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence

For the academic, maybe this will help understand Jesus … 

Jesus Christ PhD. James Franklin — “Careful attention to how Jesus uses scripture and draws from it principles that imply radical conclusions gives insight into the nature of his intensive earlier study.” … “Our modern assumption, in law and ethics, that motive and intention are morally central and that actions flow from them, is post-Christian.”

Capitalism, Poverty and Christian Charity. Peter Smith — “Whether Catholicism or Protestantism was most responsible for spurring economic progress in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and beyond can be debated. What I believe to be true is that across all of its denominational variants, Christianity is bound together in a holy and secular alliance with capitalism. This is not universally appreciated. It should be, as I hope to explain.”

“As societies have become wealthier, and wealthier still, a disconnect has arisen in the minds of many between the vast array of commodities on show and available every day and the processes of making and delivering them. A cargo cult, almost, has taken hold. This is most acutely seen, in my view, among the Greens. However, to varying extents, this mentality is widespread. It is prevalent among charity and church leaders who otherwise display no tendency to believe in magic.

Entropy, poverty and misery are always waiting in the wings unless free markets guide the process of creating and distributing wealth.

Christians who complain about capitalism need to go back to basics. Poverty will always be with us. “For you have the poor with you always” (Matthew 26:11). Charity will always be required. Meanwhile capitalism is peerless at providing the wherewithal to support charity while progressively reducing, though never ending, the need for it. It is a match made in heaven and earth.

“Brutal” Abuse Of Power: Watch As UK Police Break Up “Unlawful Gathering” Easter Service In London. Tyler Durden — “Shocking footage has emerged showing the absurd lengths authorities are willing to go to enforce ‘Covid rules’ even after vaccines have been made more widely available, with tens of millions having received the jab” … “The police appeared to literally burst in mid-service and acknowledged it was among the most important Christian holy days of the year before ordering people to disperse.”

The Trump-Hate Coalition Is Crumbling. Conrad Black — “The wheels are coming off the rickety anti-Trump coalition in all four directions.” … “Every informed person in the world knows that the events of January 6 were the result of a loose sequence of facts that were only allowed to aggregate into the assault on the Capitol because of the malice or incompetence of Trump’s enemies.”

“The FBI and senior echelons of the intelligence services were politically compromised, a massively illegal and fraudulent investigation of the elected president was conducted, two utterly spurious impeachment attempts were thrown at him and the coronavirus pandemic was invoked to produce the most seriously tainted presidential election result in the country’s history. The Supreme Court may have made the correct political decision when it declined to adjudicate the case, given how tempestuous the response would have been if it had overturned the result of the election, but it was still an abdication. They presumably acted as they did to assure that there would be no move to pack the court with Democrats, and they may now be in a position to reassert the Constitution as the controversies generated by the new administration percolate up to it.

Republicans Seek Briefing From DOJ on Allegations of ‘Suspicious’ Capitol Tours Before Riot. Rick Moran — “Shortly after the Capitol riot, 34 Democrats signed a letter asking the Department of Justice and the Capitol Police to investigate claims that Republican members of Congress assisted the rioters by giving some of them a tour of the Capitol in the days leading up to the riot.”

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,” said astronomer Carl Sagan. He was referring to claims of aliens visiting earth, but he may as well have had the Democrats smearing Republicans with baseless charges of complicity in an insurrection in mind.

There is no evidence that any Republican congressman was involved in any way in the assault on the Capitol. There’s no evidence that routine tours of the Capitol given by every member of Congress were anything but wide-eyed tourists killing time on their vacation.

What’s More American than Coke and Baseball? Clarice Feldman — “Until very recently, it would have been hard to imagine anything more iconic of American life than Coca-Cola and baseball. Today both remind me of Benito Mussolini’s corporatist – aka, fascist — game of merging of state and corporate power.” … “I’m fed up with this never-ending sham: partisan power grabs to weaken the most important features of American life being cloaked in virtuous anti-racism.”

So MLB is fine with ball games in Cuba and training in China, but Georgia is the human rights problem, Monica Showalter — “Unlike Abrams, they chose, and chose poorly, because what they chose will probably have some consequences for the MLB organization, given its nuclear level of hypocrisy.” … “Their hypocrisy surrounding this maneuver to appease senile Joe Biden and all his leftist flying monkeys circling his sorry corpus is an outrage.”

The attack on Georgia isn’t really about Georgia. neo — “This is just another example of a trend we’re seeing more and more of lately, in which companies that used to stay out of politics are making bold statements that align with the present-day Democrat narrative.” … “Democrats feel that their goal of permanent power (or at least very long-term power) is so close they can taste it. And they are willing to do nearly anything to secure it.”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution Offers Correction After Printing Biden’s Lies About GA Election Law Bill. Karen Townsend — “The newspaper made the mistake of printing Democrat talking points, specifically remarks made by President Biden, instead of the truth. AJC originally falsely reported that voting hours had been cut in the bill and failed to note that early voting days had been added for general elections while shortening the time for early voting in primary run-offs.”

NPR Corrects False Hunter Biden Claim But ... Jonathan Turley — “The article by NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving stated categorically that the laptop story was discredited by news organizations. It was later compelled to correct that false statement but still has language casting doubt on the story and evades glaring contradictions in Biden’s book and his interview. Moreover, NPR continues to run false claims from prior controversies.”

Election Fraud Hotspots – 10% of the Data are 70% of the Fraud. Jay Valentine — “Beginning in November, like many citizens, we witnessed election fraud possibilities any sentient person would investigate. Having backgrounds in fraud detection, particularly in the property casualty insurance business, Medicaid fraud, and cyber fraud, gave us a curiosity that never dissipated.”

“If Jesse Morgan did drive a tractor trailer truck with 100,000 ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, how can we find out? Chris Wray and our hardy pals at the FBI may not want to open that truck’s back door, but we do – with database analysis.

They can hide the truck. They can claim it never happened. They cannot hide the record of the ballot.

We are thrilled people are trying to alter data after the fact. They are leaving tracks like a dinosaur walking through a field of peanut butter for database tracking.

Some Covid Links. Don Boudreaux — “We will not mince words. America is indeed suffering from a dangerous plague—a plague of misanthropic fearmongering from the likes of Dr. Fauci, the Scarf Lady and the Biden’s new CDC director, among countless others of the self-designated Virus Patrol.”

How far can this go?

New Yorker Attempt To Dunk On Conservatives Further Shows Why H.R. 1 Is A Threat. Gabe Kaminsky — “Jane Mayer of The New Yorker strengthens the argument for why H.R. 1 is an awful piece of legislation.” … “Mayer misunderstands the Republican base’s argument completely and produces a straw man.”

“Mayer’s backing of President Joe Biden’s press conference claim the GOP opposing the bill is “sick” and “un-American” is only fitting, since both Biden and The New Yorker writer oversimplify the measure and do not mostly address GOP concerns.

While Mayer claims H.R. 1 is “overwhelmingly popular across the political spectrum,” and chides McKenzie for failing to acknowledge this erroneous platitude, many of its major provisions have been measured in polls as highly unpopular. But the author deceivingly neglects this.

Nancy Pelosi, The Real Insurrectionist. I & I Editorial Board — “Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi called U.S. Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Her objective was to strip Donald Trump of his constitutional executive authority. She followed up the call with a letter to her power-hungry Democratic colleagues:” … “It’s impossible to separate Pelosi’s actions from the Democrats’ efforts to rule rather than govern.”

How Stupid are American Voters — Very!? Alicia Colon — “Perhaps stupid is not the right word. Gullible is not right either. It’s really hard to pinpoint the main reason behind the disastrous state of our country but the cold hard fact is that many Americans have fallen for two of the biggest hoaxes perpetrated by the left , the media and corrupt politicians.” … “What has happened to this country is positively evil. If you can’t recognize that we have been grossly manipulated by petty dictatorial tyrants basking in power modes, then perhaps stupid is the right word.”

The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America. Victor Davis Hanson — money, law, racialism, citizenship, dependency, hypocrisy, avoidance, McCarthyism, ignorance, wokeness … “Americans privately fear these rules while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.”

Corporate communism?

The Federalist headlines of note:

The PJ Media morning briefing … Teachers’ Unions Are Heading for the Ninth Circle of Hell. Stephen Kruiser — “for those who need a refresher is all about treachery and betrayal. … also the circle in which Satan lives.”

“It is important to note that even I don’t think all union teachers are evil. Their union masters are though. And, as my friend Larry O’Connor points out over at Townhall, the good teachers need to start speaking out against and challenging their greedy (Dante’s Fourth Circle), corrupt, and treacherous leadership.

Say, Whatever Happened To Biden’s Transparency Pledge? I & I Editorial Board — “keeping people in the dark is good policy.” … “Even if what Biden said were true, that a massive surge of unaccompanied children happens every year, it means he was caught entirely flat-footed for this supposedly predictable event. In other words, either Biden is lying or he’s incompetent.” … “Just try to imagine the wall-to-wall 24/7 outcry from the press, politicians, celebrities, late-night “comedians” if Trump had done something like this.” … “If anything, Biden is a worse offender since he solemnly promised a new era of honesty and tell-it-like-it-is transparency.”

Victory of the Neurotics?

Briefly Noted: Education. Mark Wauck — “From Montgomery County, MD. But this could be “education” in most any government schools throughout most of America: … t’s obviously propaganda rather than actual civic education.”

Who Benefited from the Canceling of Congress’s 2020 Election Probe? Michael G. Zey — “the first step in a criminal inquiry is establishing motive. … Who then benefited from an incursion into the Capitol Building that prevented this disclosure of voter fraud evidence?”

States can’t enforce boundaries against interstate emigration. neo — “”

“For quite a while, though, it’s been apparent that this simple fact has been responsible for at least some of the leftward drift of our country. Over and over we seem to have the following phenomenon: people who are upset with something or many things the left has imposed or allowed in their own home states – high taxes, toleration of large numbers of street people, crime, release of prisoners, leftist ideology in school systems, crumbling infrastructure – leave for more pleasant environments where states and cities are well-managed and clean, housing is affordable, and taxes are relatively low.

And then they vote for people advocating policies that will turn their new states of abode in the direction of their old states.

The Hunter Biden Gun Story: This One Should Be Hard to Make Go Away – Part 1. Shipwreckedcrew — “Hunter Biden committed a felony and the evidence comes in the form of his own statements which establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It’s not just any felony, it is a felony that is regularly prosecuted in every federal judicial district in this country, and in significant numbers on an annual basis — especially when Democrats are running the DOJ.”

Election Fraud: Three Challenges That Must Be Overcome. Stu Cvrk — “Overcoming Democrat attempts to institutionalize election fraud … Restoring trust in federal and state government agencies … Educating the general public”

Who Is Shaking The Jar? — “If they keep us focused on fighting each other, they believe we will not notice their reprehensible criminality, as they manipulate the masses through psychological engineering and the employment of propaganda techniques to push their desired narrative.”

“The technique of using propaganda to manipulate the opinions of the masses, put forth by Edward Bernays almost one hundred years ago, has been enhanced and perfected by the deceitful and traitorous psychopaths operating as the shadow government, as they purposely construct false narratives and bogeymen, so they can expand their supremacy, dominion, and fortunes. It has always been this way, as human nature never changes, but the level and intensity has been ratcheted up to a degree never seen before in human history.

The Zhou Baiden March 25 Event. Mark Wauck — “my wife and I have lately been marveling at what I call the Victory of the Neurotics. … In a society in which neurosis–the quest for personal “safety” to the exclusion of all other considerations–dominates, is it any wonder that citizens are willing to be gaslighted by the Globalist Guardians of what used to be our Republic?”

Will 1/6 live in infamy?

Prosecutors Now Backing Away from Statements and Charges Against January 6th Protestors.  Sundance — “The approach of building a political narrative through false accusations and over-charging in the DOJ is the essence of Lawfare. The government has endless taxpayer resources to fuel their political weaponization of the judiciary. – The process of the charges then becomes the punishment by design.”

The Q Lie: The Power-Grab After January 6th Was The Real Insurrection. Thomas J. Farnan — “It is now obvious that the continued military occupation of Washington D.C. under a phony, Q-pretext is a purposeful overreaction to silence objections over the use of mass mail-in ballots to swing the 2020 election.”

Dept. of Homeland Security flirting with totalitarianism. Thomas Lifson — “Now that the Department of Justice and FBI are using the 1/6/21 Capitol incursion to demonize all who attended the massive rally that day, imputing “insurrection,” “white supremacy,” and “extremism” to them, massive political repression may be coming.” … “Just try and dissent once those pending steps are accomplished. You will be looking out from inside a new iron curtain.”

Time to Stand Up for the Second Amendment More Than Ever. [Epoch Times warning] Roger L. Simon — “Maybe we should ban Facebook instead of guns.”

Has there ever in US history been a more pitiful Cabinet? Patricia McCarthy — “We are all beginning to realize, too late, that being woke is a form of mass hysteria meant to undermine every essential tenet of Judeo-Christian values.”

What Trump Derangement Syndrome Has Wrought. Lauri B. Regan — “At less than 100 days in, Trump-haters have imposed growing disasters on the country. Trump-hating voters cared about one thing and it wasn’t the success of Operation Warp Speed, a strong economy, or peace in the Mideast. Bad Orange Man must go, the country, our kids’ and grandkids’ futures be damned. And we reap what we sow.”

Truth And Lies In A Digital Media Era. Carver Gunlocke — “Americans are submerged in an ideological fog of artificial truth thanks to the American media. In step with them are digital social media platforms. In addition, our universities, political class, and elites are foisting information that is laden with lies and half-truths to promote their social and political agenda — and they are doing it with some considerable success.”

California Officials Accepted 99.4 Percent Of Mail-In Ballots In 2020. With Newsom Recall, It’s A Completely Different Story. Jonathan S. Tobin — “When it comes to leftists protecting their own from accountability, it appears that only the strictest of scrutiny will do.” … “in California, Democrats who were trying to stop the recall were not concerned with defending the notion that every signature, just like every vote, should be counted.”

The cult of the vaccine. Landon Freeman — “Close your eyes and think back to a time in which you, your kids, or any other loved one received a vaccine. Chances are, the event wasn’t treated as if it was some grandiose event.”

Bought and paid for

Big Media Show Why You Can’t Trust Them To Report Fairly On Biden’s Immigration Fiasco. I & I Editorial Board — “Once again, photos show “kids in cages.” But this time, the Big Media are mostly silent, or making excuses, as are the Democrats who helped create this inhumane mess.” … “The left-media have again disgraced themselves in not truthfully reporting on an issue vital to our nation. Sadly, these days the media print lies like the Fed prints money. It’s up to all of us to hold them accountable.”

So the FBI knew all about the Colorado shooter … Monica Showalter — “While they were out there busy looking for ‘white supremacists’ this admitted refugee from Syria was making plans to kill –

And he’s not the first.” … “the politicization of the bureau seems to be going hand in hand with the increased money and personnel being larded onto the bureau.” … “The prevalence of spray-shooters ought to leave the FBI no time for political persecutions that benefit only Democrats. They need focus now on real threats and be on the hot seat if they don’t.”

Once again, Democrats are capitalizing on death to grab your guns. Andrea Widburg — “The Democrats, whipped into a frenzy by shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, are once again coming for the Second Amendment.”

“the racism behind the Democrats’ anti-gun pushes is always shocking. Every single day in Democrat-run cities inner city, youths – usually Black or Hispanic – shoot at and often succeed in killing each other or, worse, innocent bystanders. These killings never lead to serious calls for gun control. Inner-city people are fungible if they keep voting Democrat.

There are many more arguments to be made against the Democrats’ desperation to disarm you, but these arguments are a start. Donate to a gun rights organization and call your senators and House representatives. If the camel gets its nose through the tent on the current initiatives, you can be guaranteed that the whole camel will follow soon and your guns will go.

H.R. 1 is Emblematic of the Crisis of American Democracy. Conrad Black — “There is no possibility that properly apprised of the contents of H.R. 1, the American people would approve of it.” … “There is no evidence at all after 60 days of the new administration, of any disposition to collaborate with moderate Republicans in a centrist response to the many policy challenges the administration faces.”

“So swift has the crisis of American democracy arisen that even those who clearly see the threats to it from these initiatives of the Democrats can scarcely believe their senses that such an assault could occur in a country that has had a legitimate claim to be the principal democracy in the world, either alone or along with Great Britain, for all of its history.

Election ‘Safety’ Grants May Have Swung Arizona to Biden, Report Finds. Fred Lucas — “Money from the founder of Facebook touted as being for safe elections during the pandemic may have affected the outcome of the presidential race”

‘Who Are These Outsiders?’ Big Tech $$$$ – Zuck Bucks – Paid Government Election Offices to Become Turnout Machines for Biden in 2020 Election. Victoria Taft — “Joe Biden boasted last fall from his basement that he had the best “voter fraud organization” in the country. We thought it was one of his typical malapropisms, but it turns out, he may not have been kidding around.”

The Climate Headline The Legacy Media Wouldn’t Dare Write. I & I Editorial Board — “because he was an Obama appointee, the press simply ignores him. – Steve Koonin, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology- and CalTech-educated physicist, said last week that “discussions of existential threat, climate crisis, climate disaster are really at odds with what the official science says in reports that are issued by the U.N. and the U.S. government.” Shouldn’t the press have picked up on this?”

“It’s no small thing for a learned and highly credentialed physicist, particularly one who served the president who said “no challenge poses a greater threat to our future and future generations than a changing climate,” to beat back a political plot line. Yet the media have chosen to pretend Koonin never spoke and will continue to sow fear. None dare point out they’re part of a conspiracy to mislead.

Science in an Age of Fear. Chet Richards — “Far too many people believe that science is some mysterious entity which speaks in oracles and delivers miraculous new toys for people to marvel at and play with.”

“The tyranny of fear is being used to impose real political tyranny. We must resist the fear. We must not be afraid to say what we really think. In so doing we are very likely to discover we have unexpected allies. Never forget that intellectual freedom is the shield protecting all our freedoms.

Studies Find That Masks Work. Paul Mirengoff — See the comments to find out just how far Mirengoff is going to find comfort in his beliefs.

Do We Need Mask Mandates? Connor Harris — “The science suggests that more states should consider rescinding them.” This stands as a counter example to Mirengoff’s study in intellectual integrity both in its arguments and in its citations.

Myths and facts

Black Lives Matter: The Myths and the Facts. William D. Rubinstein — “the BLM movement is one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated by the Left on the American public and, by extension, on public opinion throughout the Western world. Its raison d’être is that America’s police forces systematically engage in widespread racist attacks, especially unjustified shootings, against ordinary black people simply going about their business. – The facts are different.” … “The more closely one looks at each purported case of an unjustified shooting of a black man by a policeman in America, the more dubious many of these claims seem.”

“The widespread publicity given to the George Floyd case, the riots and violence which ensued as a result, and the calls by the extreme Left to “defund” the police, have led to many police officers quitting their forces rather than put up with the lies and violence of the extreme Left.

The BLM movement and its allies have perpetrated one of the greatest hoaxes on modern American public debate, unfortunately with literally deadly consequences in too many cases. But as always, the central aim of America’s radicals is the destruction of society.

Biden’s Solar Energy Plan Has A Major Space Problem. Tyler Durden — “Biden clinched the top role last November on the back of a campaign promise to launch the Clean Energy Revolution in the country, with a chief aim of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Rystad Energy estimates that the significant utility solar PV installed capacity required to meet the target would occupy around 13,412 square miles of land, equivalent to 0.43% of the total land area in the lower 48 states, or roughly 50 times the size of Austin, Texas.”

The Democrat Party Has Declared War on America. Steve McCann — “The American Left and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Democrat party, has declared war on America by openly and ruthlessly attacking American society, its norms and foundational principles.”

The art of the scam, drowning in it.

Judge Rules New York Times Used ‘Deceptive Disinformation’ To Smear Project Veritas. Tyler Durden — “What the Times did, as you’ll see below, is similar to countless hit-pieces against Zero Hedge and others; using broad, unsupported brush strokes to slander their ideological opponents. We can only hope this case sets new precedent for future defamation cases.”

The MSM and the Atlanta massage parlor murders. neo — “Almost? I assume Sullivan is being sarcastic here. But actually, they don’t need a script anymore. They know the playbook by heart.”

Why HR1 Threatens Election Integrity [via zerohedge]. Justin Riemer at RealClearPolitics.com — “Let’s look at just a few of the many areas where HR1 would nationalize elections and cancel out state integrity and confidence-building measures.” … “Cynics say that Republicans oppose this legislation because we want to restrict people from voting. This could not be further from the truth. The reality is that we want all eligible voters to be able to vote and vote easily — but voters must also have confidence that our elections systems have safeguards to prevent fraud and ensure accuracy.”

Digital Trails: How The FBI Is Identifying, Tracking, & Rounding-Up Dissidents [via zerohedge]. John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute. — “Databit by databit, we are building our own electronic concentration camps.” … “The government’s efforts to round up those who took part in the Capitol riots shows exactly how vulnerable we all are to the menace of a surveillance state that aspires to a God-like awareness of our lives.” … “Forget about being innocent until proven guilty.”

“As for the Fourth Amendment and its prohibitions on warrantless searches and invasions of privacy without probable cause, those safeguards have been rendered all but useless by legislative end-runs, judicial justifications, and corporate collusions.

The ‘net neutrality’ issue is a part and parcel of this.

The American Police State Is Now Forming. Jack Wisdom — “The image of the new wall or fence with razor wire on top that now surrounds the Capitol has been floating across the screen of my mind since it was erected.” … “Although the vulture mentality grows and expresses itself as the police state, the vultures pretend to be enlightened doves, bringing friendliness and meeting the needs — scientifically grounded, of course — for a more safe, clean, secure, intelligent, just, and cooperative environment.”

The Anatomy Of The Scam [via zerohedge]. Quintus Curtius at Fortress of The Mind — “We must remember that all con games play on two elements: greed and ignorance. Other emotions can be used, such as pity or guilt, but greed and ignorance are the mainstays.” Note the behaviors you can see in the election, climate change, white guilt, and other political ideologies on today’s forefront. You are the mark, the pigeon, and you’ve been had over and over again. “Do not underestimate the effectiveness of scams and cons. Good scammers are sociopaths. They can be extremely convincing.”

Kamala Harris exposed as a phony, once again over weed. Monica Showalter — “Pot has always been a fool-killer for phonies like Kamala Harris, our purported vice president. – Two of her most embarrassing, hypocritical political moments come down to pot, and now there’s going to be a third.

The Truth is struggling to get out from under the rug

Have We Ever Had A President Like This Before? I & I Editorial Board — “No matter who is in charge, if it isn’t Biden, then his presidency is a fraud. To answer our own question, we’re convinced that we’ve ever had a president like this before, possibly dishonestly elected, and certainly insufficient in his abilities. We’re embarrassed for our country.”

“Given how evident Biden’s troubles are, we have to wonder, almost two months into his presidency, why aren’t the left-wing networks bringing mental health professionals to analyze Biden and declare him erratic, dangerous, and unfit, to scare the country, as they did Donald Trump?

Actually, we don’t wonder. We know: As Bob Dylan and Jacques Levy wrote in “Hurricane,” the media “all went along for the ride.”

What Happened to Our Country? Mike Miller — “Dr. Seuss books, Mrs. Butterworth’s Syrup, Uncle Ben’s Rice, beloved-by-generations Aunt Jemima. Gone in a flash. A collective stain on America and a danger to American society. And even more ominously: a danger to America’s children in their formative years.”

The Legends of Our Fall. Victor Davis Hanson — “The left-wing postmodern idea of “truth” as a mere pick-and-choose official narrative is now normal.” It’s such a long list he cites. “In our upside-down world, the smeared “liar” is the revealer of such fraud. And sadly the deified “truth-teller” is in truth the abettor of falsity. ”

As the Court Rulings and Findings Pile up, the Left Still Considers It a Crime to Question the 2020 Election Results. Scott Hounsell — “How long must we live in a world where asking legitimate questions and raising factual concerns about the manner in which the 2020 election was conducted, is considered a cardinal sin?” … “The facts are on the side of conservatives: Any and all of the changes instituted for mail ballots, almost exclusively benefited the left. That’s why they don’t want us asking questions or offering criticisms. Despite several court decisions supporting our cause, their treasonous behavior is excused.”

Interesting: Semi-Serious Social Science Study On January 6 Event. Mark Wauck — “The study comes from the prestigious University of Chicago, and includes some interesting information about the people who participated in as well as those who were arrested at the January 6 Event.” … “Interesting times? I hope so. The data in this study suggests this new movement may not just fade away in the face of DC political theater.”

Georgia in the swamp

Media’s Entire Georgia Narrative Is Fraudulent, Not Just The Fabricated Trump Quotes. Mollie Hemingway — “The fake quotes, bad as they were, are just one of many ways the media have done a horrible job of covering election disputes in the state.” Here’s a blow by blow account up to and following November 3.

“As for the media, they’re doing what they always do — advancing a political agenda. Believing their characterization of lawsuits, phone calls, or anything else they report on is unwise.

But it wasn’t just the quotes they got wrong about Georgia. It was pretty much everything.

more from Mark Wauck: “The bottom line appears to be something along these lines: Five separate “news” organizations “confirmed” that the moon is made from green cheese.” …

The Sovereign Crime of Industrial Scale Vote Fraud. Jay Valentine — “2020 election fraud was an industrial level crime. It was of such magnitude that it moved from the category of an election crime to a sovereign crime.” … “Sovereign crime is not something we see a lot of in America as our governmental institutions are generally not organized to commit, support or hide a crime.”

Capitol Investigation Seeks to Criminalize Political Dissent. Julie Kelly — “The government’s response to the January 6 melee isn’t about justice. It’s about partisan retribution and revenge. And the consequences will be disastrous.” … “Convicting any of the Capitol defendants on charges of obstructing an official proceeding will cross a dangerous line—a line government prosecutors and federal judges clearly feel undeterred to cross. This isn’t about justice, it’s about partisan retribution and revenge. And the consequences will be disastrous.”

Democrats Are Sacrificing American Kids’ Lives To Get More Power. Joy Pullmann — “If a child doesn’t have to die to save grandma from coronavirus, why would we ever let that child die? A heartbreaking longread from ProPublica challenges the nation.”

“The more a county voted for Democrats, the more likely its schools were to be closed. The analysis also found that the stronger the local teachers unions — another proxy for Democrat control — the less likely the schools were to be open.

Democrats lied, and children died. According to Joe Biden’s lockdown speech Thursday, they’re not done, either.

Rigged To Fail: From Lies To Populism, From Musk To Powell. Matthew Piepenburg via GoldSwitzerland.com — “But as investors and citizens, we are getting quite used to the shameless. The staggering decline in basic ethics in the rigged-to-fail game of lax regulation and robust dishonesty that so characterizes the U.S. securities market is now the norm rather than exception.”

“As the 1% enjoys the spoils of such “interesting” behavior, the remaining 99% are feeling a “disturbance in the force” and are becoming understandably angry for reasons they can’t fully put their fingers on.

Instapundit — Yesterday a Georgetown law professor was fired for getting too close for comfort to the truth about the effects of race-preferential admissions. But it was not the first hullabaloo on that topic to erupt at Georgetown. Here’s the story:

Maybe the pendulum is starting to swing on cancel culture. Andrea Widburg — “I’ve learned that, if I apply my natural cynicism and pessimism to anything that originated with leftists, I will almost invariably correctly predict the future. Nevertheless, there’s a small part of me that always hopes things will get better.”

You’ve been had. Again and again.

Courts Repeatedly Refused To Consider Trump’s Election Claims On The Merits. Bob Anderson — “The losing side needed to know that a fair shake was given, and that justice prevailed, even if it wasn’t the outcome they wanted. That did not happen after Nov. 3.”

“The election is over. There has been an inauguration. So why did ABC’s George Stephanopoulos feel the need to berate a U.S. senator and his audience with the demand, “Can’t you just say the words: This election was not stolen?” Why must he shout, “There were 86 challenges filed by President Trump and his allies in court. All were dismissed!”

Perhaps, the answer lies in the details of those cases, as much in how they were adjudicated as in the final rulings.

In reality, there were 28 unique cases filed across the six contested states by President Trump or others on his behalf.

we can recognize that many of the cases produced no useful information relative to election integrity.

At times, judges resorted to Clintonian wordsmithing to relieve a word of its recognized meaning.

The one thing many voters seem to have learned through the legal chaos is that it’s easier to commit election violations than to stop them. So the electorate remains divided—even after “86 election cases.”

Why Election Integrity Matters. Vince Coyner — “Specifically, the Founder’s Constitution worked because – by design – it was insulated from men’s passions.” … “Today, America sits and watches as Democrats essentially send the Constitution through the shredder.”

How Are Popular Uprisings Triggered? Mark Wauck — “The way I read that, YOU–you Trump voters–are the “deeper sickness”. Gurri wants to cure YOU, but for now he’ll settle with addressing the symptoms–meaning, Trump–and get to YOU later.” … “the Dems and their Corporate proxies are doubling down on their “delusional, ham fisted, authoritarian” tactics.”

Biden’s scary, boring, and bizarre address to the nation. Andrea Widburg — “On Thursday night, a masked Biden tottered down a long, empty hall to a podium. He then gave the most bizarre presidential address in American history.”

If This Week You Learned Biden is ‘Hopeful’ And Tucker Carlson Is Evil, Congratulations, You’ve Been Lied To. Christopher Bedford — “”

“If you hadn’t watched the president’s prime-time address, you might think it was something — anything — other than the most depressing, defeated, and resigned speech since President Jimmy Carter held the office. You might think he hadn’t devoted his third sentence to a baseless attack on his predecessor, and the entire rest of his address to death, sadness, loneliness, and despair. You might think he hadn’t literally threatened the American people, warning, “We may have to reinstate restrictions to get back on track, please, we don’t want to do that again.”

Rather, to read The Washington Post homepage’s featured commentary on the address, you’d think “Much of that speech was about hope.”

If you’re wondering why you didn’t see any of this, don’t worry: It didn’t happen. But more and more, we all have to take a step back, throw some water on our faces, and look around in disbelief at the state of our corporate media.

The Blatant Fraud Behind The New $1.9 Tril ‘COVID Relief’ Law. I & I Editorial Board — “With the COVID-19 relief bill now signed into law, it can’t be any clearer that Americans have had the wool pulled over their eyes on what this really was all about.”

Biden Fires Eeoc General Counsel For Protecting Religious Rights. Paul Mirengoff — “What, then, is there to dislike about Gustafson? The only thing I can think of is her vigorous opposition to discrimination based on religion in the workplace which, in the context of one piece of EEOC litigation, has displeased LGBT activists.”

Criticizing Public Figures, Including Influential Journalists, is Not Harassment or Abuse. Glenn Greenwald — “As social media empowers uncredentialed people to be heard, society’s most powerful actors seek to cast themselves as victims and delegitimize all critiques.”

Department of Defense Prints a Disturbing, Unprofessional Attack on Tucker Carlson, Proving How Politicized They’ve Become. Nick Arama — “Tucker Carlson earned the ire of some on the left for saying something truly radical: that maybe pregnant women should be involved in a combat zone/be fighting wars. … He spoke about how, while China is building up their Navy to be reportedly bigger than ours, Joe Biden’s focus was…maternity flight suits and updating requirements for hair styles.”

The Real COVID Nursing Home Scandal Is Why Cuomo And Other Democrats Did It. Willis L. Krumholz and Robert Delahunty — “What’s worse than using political and legal authority to cause the agonizing deaths of a large number of elderly? Doing that as a cynical favor to monied corporate donors.”

Did The Shutdowns Save Lives? A Year Later, Statistical Analysis Suggests Not. Chuck DeVore — “There is no evidence shutdowns did anything but deepen the economic suffering, increase suicides, and prevent lifesaving medical tests and treatments.”

If You Want to Understand Why 5000 National Guardsmen Are Still in DC, Read the Indictment of Oath Keepers Involved in the Capitol Riot. Streiff – “With the Democrat-supported rioters, charges are being dismissed in droves. In the Capitol rioters’ case, the full weight of the federal government is being used to prosecute people for types of crimes that did not rate notice by federal law enforcement when committed by politically favored rioters.”

“As the cases move out of the bizarre and lie-filled media accounts (no “kill teams,” no zip ties, no beating a cop to death, no guns, no connection to Trump’s speech) and into the legal system, we see more and more of those accused of complicity in the Capitol riot are being released on their own recognizance pending trial.

FBI Investigation Finds No Evidence Any Republican Member of Congress Aided Capitol Rioters but the Damage Is Done. Streiff – “The last of the Capitol rioters had barely vacated the premises when Nancy Pelosi’s allies began slandering their Republican colleagues … This is just another of the completely false narratives peddled by the Democrats, the media, the National Review, the Bulwark, the Dispatch, and a bunch of pedo-enabling losers that have self-destructed.”

Biden’s ugly betrayal of the Iranian people. Neo – “That’s the title of this article by Mariam Memarsadeghi in Tablet … The article also goes into what seems to be the required paragraph of Trump-bashing, with such typical stuff as “The same democratic liberties and institutions which the Iranian people sought to achieve with American support, Trump often seemed to threaten at home.” No examples, naturally. Then it segues into a description of what Biden has done”

“There was never a moment’s question that this would be the result of a Biden presidency. Those who voted for him – and whether or not you think Biden won the actual vote, there were plenty of people who did in fact vote for him – either did not care about Iran, did not know about Iran, or considered getting rid of Trump the most important thing of all. Trump was a demon, and demons must be exorcised no matter what the cost might be.

On the Left, an Era of Fascist Magical Thinking. Michael Walsh – “The genius of the Left’s success in achieving their favored policy positions is found in their favorite tactic: first, posit a counter-factual and, second, act on it as if it were true — with maximum governmental force.”

There Is No Such Thing As “White” Math [zerohedge]. Common Sense with Bari Weiss – “In my position as a professor of mathematics at Princeton, I have witnessed the decline of universities and cultural institutions as they have embraced political ideology at the expense of rigorous scholarship. Until recently — this past summer, really — I had naively thought that the STEM disciplines would be spared from this ideological takeover.

“I was wrong. Attempts to “deconstruct” mathematics, deny its objectivity, accuse it of racial bias, and infuse it with political ideology have become more and more common — perhaps, even, at your child’s elementary school.

Unlike the traditional totalitarianism practiced by former communist countries, like the Romania I grew up in, this version is soft. It enforces its ideology not by jailing dissenters or physically eliminating them, but by social shaming, mob punishment, guilt by association, and coerced speech.

When it comes to education, I believe the woke ideology is even more harmful than old-fashioned communism.

Finally, and most importantly, the woke approach to mathematics is particularly poisonous to those it pretends to want to help.

A Step Forward — Adding “Blue Anon” to the Political Lexicon to Stigmatize Idiot Pundits on the Left. Shipwreckedcrew – “it appears that a counter-attack has been successfully launched in some small way — if conservatives can unite behind it and make it stick.” … ““Blue Anon” is an apt descriptor for the nearly illiterate opinion-makers on the left who seem to be working overtime to come up with ridiculous theories to explain why it is that so much of the policy agenda of the radical wing of the Democrat party is so unpopular.”

all too effective in their theatrics

Class Warfare. Mark Wauck – “That’s the reality of America, as Glenn Harlan Reynolds describes it today” … “Who is this woke upperclass that so ruthlessly seeks to suppress the unwoke? It’s the “gentry”, as defined by ideology”

“the necessary condition for overcoming this organized Evil of the New World Order is our own reeducation in the philosophy of the real world of the God created order of human nature. Tolerance cannot extend to Anthony Kennedy’s so called right of all to define for themselves “the sweet mystery of life”. That way lies social collapse and chaos.

Dumbest ‘insurrection theatre’ stunt of the week. Thomas Lifson – “The relentless campaign to demonize supporters of President Trump entered the realm of self-parody” … “This bogus warning was entirely the product of human intentions, not the result of impersonal natural forces. And it amounted to the worst sort of propaganda, intended to demonize a group based on lies, by fanning the flames of panic.” … “Ninety percent plus of the population will never see the broader picture. The propagandists control what most people see, and are all too effective in their theatrics.”

Dems Claim Republicans Helped the Capitol Rioters. Now the Feds Are Taking a Look. Tyler O’Neil – “Federal officials have arrested and charged about 300 people, and the investigation is shifting to focus on the people who allegedly conspired and planned the riot.” … “Democrats have attempted to weaponize the Capitol riot against Republicans in various ways.” … “The far-left smear factory the Southern Poverty Law Center has urged Congress to “discipline, censure, or expel” the 147 senators and representatives who “supported the insurrection.”

“Democrats are overplaying their hands in 2021 and Americans are paying attention. While it would be heinous for any member of Congress to support or abet the invasion of the U.S. Capitol, it seems highly unlikely any lawmaker actually did so.

What does the left think would be the danger in leaving Trump’s CPAC speech on YouTube? Neo – “I can think of a number of things”

“The left has been banning and canceling people for quite some time, but a more blatant and extreme form of institutional (and corporate) censorship began – as far as I can recall – with the blocking of the Hunter Biden laptop story and of anyone who tried to post it or refused to pretend it didn’t exist. That was a watershed as far as I’m concerned.

A Photographer Snapped Photos From Trump And Biden Press Secretary’s Helpful Notes – Matches The Description Of A Conservative Manager vs A “Creative” Liberal. “Now in Biden’s era when Jen Psaki is a White House Press Secretary the same photographer snapped a photo of Psaki’s helpful notes. The question remains, who hires someone with this level of organizational skill to be the White House, press secretary?” … “Kayleigh McEnany had her notebook squared away in a presentable manner! Psaki just looks like she came out of an 8th-grade biology class.”

Science, Politics, and COVID: Will Truth Prevail? Scott W. Atlas – “The COVID pandemic … has exposed profound issues in America that threaten the principles of freedom and order that we Americans often take for granted.”

“First, I have been shocked at the unprecedented exertion of power by the government since last March—issuing unilateral decrees, ordering the closure of businesses, churches, and schools, restricting personal movement, mandating behavior, and suspending indefinitely basic freedoms. Second, I was and remain stunned—almost frightened—at the acquiescence of the American people to such destructive, arbitrary, and wholly unscientific rules, restrictions, and mandates.

The pandemic also brought to the forefront things we have known existed and have tolerated for years: media bias, the decline of academic freedom on campuses, the heavy hand of Big Tech, and—now more obviously than ever—the politicization of science. Ultimately, the freedom of Americans to seek and state what they believe to be the truth is at risk.

I also fear that the idea of science as a search for truth—a search utilizing the empirical scientific method—has been seriously damaged.

He describes his own experience as the target of the woke cancel hoard as example.

Toy building as an end and not a means

The Wisdom in Knowing What We Don’t Know. Peter Arnold – “Regrettably, there is little knowledge — read that ‘verifiable facts’ — about treating COVID-19, about preventing its spread, about the facts of herd immunity, about its mutation potential, about any form of treatment, the efficacy of the vaccines and many other open questions. This has left experts, world-wide, to respond in ignorance to the demands of the media for comment.”

FBI Took Possession of Suspicious Ballots in Georgia in Early January and Ordered Them Destroyed With a Shredder. Joe Hoft – “We now have more information regarding this incident from individuals with knowledge of the events.” … “This investigation was thwarted by the FBI. The evidence was destroyed.”

Developing some perspective on the Capitol riot. Byron York – “In the last few days we’ve seen a series of hearings in the House and Senate on the January 6 riot at the Capitol.”

The Capitol Police Chief And Her Democratic Bosses Are Lying To You, All To Hold Our Capital Hostage. Christopher Bedford – “It’s because panic porn and agitprop are useful tools when you’re working as hard as you can to spread fear and distrust against the half of the country that disagrees with your policies.”

Explosive Testimony: National Guard General Confirms ‘Optics’ Reason for Weak Capitol Security on January 6th. Kyle Becker – “The National Guard general’s testimony should be watched and read in full to get a deep understanding of how it completely exposes many of the misleading narratives about the Capitol attack.”

Nobody’s Tax Returns are Confidential Anymore. Kenneth H. Ryesky – “Violations of taxpayer confidentiality by governmental employees and others are criminal offenses under I.R.C. §§ 7213 and 7213A.” …

“Courts have held that “[t]o compel the disclosure of tax returns, the movant must show that (1) ‘the returns are relevant to the subject matter of the action’ and (2) ‘there is a compelling need for the tax returns because the information contained therein is not otherwise readily available.'”

As matters currently stand, the Supreme Court’s allowance of disclosure is a precedent for future abuses by prosecutors nationwide. Nobody’s tax returns can truly be confidential anymore.

Why Do Federal Prosecutors Seem To Have A Problem With The Truth? Mark Wauck – “It’s almost as if politics somehow entered into this criminal prosecution. The big insurrection narrative is getting pretty tattered.”

Don’t Get Scammed By So-Called STEM Education. Tony Kinnett – “America’s STEM classrooms are devolving — wasting valuable class time with toys, barely applicable coding games, and victim-mentality nonsense.” It goes back to the seventies. “Why are so many public and private schools led down the paths of cheap entertainment and virtue signaling?”

“Major groups like the National Science Teaching Association assert women and minority groups are underrepresented in STEM fields in the United States and other Western nations, so someone must be discouraging these demographics from entering STEM while in school. The data shows that access and encouragement in STEM isn’t the problem, however. Many people simply aren’t interested in pursuing it as a career.

The Racial Equity Institute and The Smithsonian are among many attributing the bedrock of quality STEM learning — perfectionism, a sense of urgency, the written word, and “only one right way — as white supremacy. In fact, if you aren’t teaching your students these social sermons constantly in STEM classrooms, you’re perpetuating “implicit bias.”

Unfortunately, such messaging has consequences.

Students have to do it themselves and the best and brightest do tend to learn more out of school.

We live in an age of irregularities

When A Great Democracy Politicized The Military. James S. Corum – “President Joe Biden has embarked on a revolutionary program to replace constitutional freedoms with a new social justice agenda. Supporting the radical agenda is his defense secretary Lloyd Austin, whose top priority is to politicize the military to eliminate “extremists.”

“So, what happens when the hard left takes control of the government of a great democracy and decides that the desired social revolution requires the destruction of conservative institutions and leaders, and then institutes aggressive policies to expel conservatives from the military? We have a good answer when we look at France from 1899 to 1914 when hard-left governments were in power.

We see an interesting historical parallel today, with a leftist government under Biden behaving much like the French Premier Combes in trying to impose a radical leftist orthodoxy and crush the conservative half of the nation. In Defense Secretary Austin we see a man obsessed with the internal politics of the army, just like French General André, intent on purging the armed forces of “extremists” rather than focusing on foreign threats.

Stop the Balkanization of America. Civis Americanus – “It is always useful to have a single word with which to identify and marginalize the enemy in any kind of conflict, and “Balkanizer” seems to fit the bill.”

“Balkanization has already resulted in the breakup of Yugoslavia, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Russian Empire. Balkanization is the reason for proposals for Scottish, Bavarian, and Catalan secession. This makes those who want to similarly Balkanize the United States useful idiots for foreign and domestic enemies of the United States. We need to marginalize them as such.

The Wisdom in Knowing What We Don’t Know. Peter Arnold – “Regrettably, there is little knowledge — read that ‘verifiable facts’ — about treating COVID-19, about preventing its spread, about the facts of herd immunity, about its mutation potential, about any form of treatment, the efficacy of the vaccines and many other open questions. This has left experts, world-wide, to respond in ignorance to the demands of the media for comment.”

What We Know And Don’t Know About The Events Of January 6th. Charles Turot – “It takes three days after any event to find out what happened, and 30 days to find out what really happened.”

“The dust storm of information and misinformation takes a while to settle in the perpetually-online United States. The truth lodges in fewer places now. … After 60 days, what do we, and don’t we, know about the events of January 6th? What we don’t know concerns me. When information that ought to be public isn’t, there’s a reason. It’s seldom good.

Turns out the new word to label what Turot describes is ‘irregularities’. This is especially true when dancing around election behavior.

Insurrection, 2016. John Hinderaker – “The Democrats’ pompous characterization of the mini-riot at the Capitol on January 6 as an “insurrection” is a transparent political ploy.” … “Actually, if you want to talk about insurrection, the violence and violent rhetoric that the Democratic Party marshaled after Donald Trump’s election in 2016 more nearly fits the definition.”

“With this outrageous conduct by Democrats taking place, one might think that leaders of the Democratic Party would be scurrying to disavow their supporters’ violence. But that isn’t happening.

That is today’s Democratic Party: the vicious, the violent, the anti-democratic, the bullies. The fascists.

The Left’s Campaign Against Self-Defense. Janet Levy – “In the name of “social justice,” politicians and the judiciary in many cities and states are bestowing moral rights on violent left-wing and anarchist groups.”

“In stark contrast, prosecutors are bearing down heavily on gun owners who defended themselves at protests by militant leftist groups like Antifa and BLM. Under threat are the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the legal justification to act in self-defense.

the way biased prosecutors have responded to self-defense cases — all involving people menaced or attacked by Antifa-BLM protestors — is really a cause for worry.

The final rulings on these cases will be a weathervane for the future of self-defense in the U.S. Americans could very well be in danger of losing their right to own firearms and use them for their protection.

Judge blocks bills limiting Beshear’s emergency powers. – “The Democratic governor’s administration made a “strong case” that the Republican-backed bills are likely to “undermine, or even cripple,” public health measures needed to protect Kentuckians from the pandemic, Franklin County Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said in his ruling.” A judge is asserting that a governor can ignore laws passed by a legislature? The voice of the people can be overridden by executive fiat? One could wonder whether the judge sees his job as deciding law or deciding on his own what he thinks right or wrong.

Neutron bombs and racial obsessions

The upcoming show trial. Mark Wauck – “discusses an article by George Parry, Derek Chauvin’s Trial: Countdown to a Kangaroo Court … The idea of an “impartial jury” is laughable.”

Lange V. California Puts Tyranny In Play, And Your Rights At Risk. Gary M. Galles – “why don’t we take the 4th Amendment seriously, rather than look for ways to eviscerate it?”

Seriously?… FBI Director Chris Wray Testifies There Is No Evidence of “Fake Trump Supporters” at US Capitol During Riot. Jim Hoft – “Antifa-BLM organizer John Sullivan was at the US Capitol and bragged about wearing a MAGA hat during the riots where he broke a window and stormed the US Capitol.” … “Obviously, the once-great FBI and Chris Wray cannot be trusted.”

on the obsession:

Happy Texas Independence Day! Will Woke History Cancel the Alamo? Bryan Preston – “As we hit the 185th anniversary of Texas Independence and the fall of the Alamo, then the rise of Texas, we have a problem. Some are revising the story to put slavery front and center, when it was not. It was an issue, but not the primary issue” … “One need not be a historian to know that slavery pre-dates the invention of capitalism by thousands of years.” … “Academic freedom is dying at the hands of critical race theory and cancel culture, which views history through a very narrow, modern Marxist lens that condemns capitalism but overlooks communism’s true, current slavery (in China, for instance), and ignores its ghastly historic body count.”

Was COVID-19 Our Neutron Bomb? Victor Davis Hanson – “If Biden and his team get what they wish—a neo-socialist, big government transformation—we will enter tough times. But not yet and perhaps not until after 2022.”

A rash of fake news, whipped up in a jiffy.

No, Sen. Ron Johnson Didn’t Promote A ‘Conspiracy Theory’ About The Capitol Riot. J. Michael Waller – “Sen. Ron Johnson was one of the first senators to suspect the riot had been planned. In a Federalist article, I identified four groups that appeared to have planned for violence in advance.” … “Facts are stubborn things,” John Adams famously said … From the Washington Post to Whoopi Goldberg, members of the chattering class tried to alter the state of facts and evidence they didn’t like.” … “And so began a new narrative to recover the old: That Johnson and others were pushing a fake story to exculpate right-wing extremists and blame it all on left-wingers. That false narrative became international “news.”

The Sound Behind You Is Reality Catching Up (and It’s Carrying a Gun). Jack Dunphy – “What value is there in a newspaper that ignores or subverts the truth in the service of some fashionable agenda?”

Debunking the Latest Democrat-Media Claims About the Election. Stu Cvrk – “As evidence of “election irregularities” began to trickle out and then become a flood after Election Day on 3 November, the Democrat-media complex went into overdrive in a multi-pronged effort to squelch any discussion of possible election fraud or the potential need for forensic audits:” … “The Democrats have now added an additional prong in their attack on truth: their use of MITRE Corporation, an “independent” entity whose (paid) analysis and report concluded that “multiple types of analysis found no evidence of fraud, manipulation, or uncorrected error in the eight states included in this research.”

ID For Absentee Ballots Are Now Required In Georgia – Angry Leftists React By “Storming” The State Capitol. Mack Cogburn – “The Senate passed the bill mostly along party lines, 35-18.”

Biden White House Should Follow Evidence, Not ‘Bug Splatter’ Junk Science. Hank Campbell – “Sensational assertions follow a well-worn pattern. Just a few years ago, similar marketing campaigns insisted that honeybees were doomed”

Enough Is Enough: Time to Finally Follow the Science on Masks. Ted Noel – “The reporter asked for my comments and then said what his narrative required, without regard for any scientific data. The list of CDC and Medscape information in the video description escaped his attention. He also completely ignored the fact that Anthony Fauci has flip-flopped on masks more than a fresh-caught fish on deck.”

“If you want the very best filtration, wear a vacuum cleaner bag (top line) over your head. But that bag has so much resistance that you’ll also need that eight-amp motor to get air in and out. This brings us to a key point. When filtration is so essential that any contamination might be fatal — such as in the Wuhan Institute of Virology — you need a powered source of clean air to be able to breathe at all. That degree of protection is why Level IV virology labs use space suits and powered air instead of street clothes and surgical masks. If they need it to protect from such a lethal virus as the Wuhan Flu, shouldn’t you be wearing one all the time?

Follow the evidence. Make sure the evidence is truthfully portrayed, relevant, and provided proper context. Otherwise you get fake news.

Let it be, he said. Really?

How Baby Boomers Ushered In Our Narcissistic Age. Michael Morris – “Helen Andrews’ book, ‘Boomers: The Men and Women Who Promised Freedom and Delivered Disaster,’ offers a penetrating and damning look at a generation that put America on a path to ruin.” … “Through Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor, Andrews paints a portrait of how the courts essentially weaponized law against the longstanding institutions of America.” … “Andrews offers a compelling book that will help readers identify these excesses and, Lord willing, maybe provide an opportunity for correction.”

‘Blessings Of Liberty’: How ‘The Equality Act’ Viciously Attacks Christians, Freedom, Society, Sex, And You. Christopher Bedford – “According to the Equality Act, religious nurses, doctors, and hospitals unwilling to kill an unborn child or perform a sex-change surgery could be legally discriminating.”

“It’s all made possible by massively expanding the government’s definition of bigotry, as well as the definition of public gathering places to include any place that “provides exhibition, entertainment, recreation, exercise, amusement, public gathering or public display.” When you add the above to “any establishment that provides a good, service, or program,” you’ve put nearly the entirety of American civic life under the thumb of radical activists.

Under the Equality Act, after all, American law is a tool to attack our rights of conscience, our religious freedom, our businesses, our schools, our families, our neighbors, our priests, and our churches. How dare anyone expect to use the law to defend against it?

While the act is nearly certain to pass the Democratic House of Representatives, its fate in the Senate is less assured. Americans must pay close attention. Our society depends on it.

The Democrats’ ‘Woke’ Equality Act: Another Awful Idea That Would Radically Change America. I & I Editorial Board – “The just-passed Equality Act no doubt sounds wonderful to many. Who, after all, can disagree with a bill to “prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation”? But it’s a wretched bill, one that would have many terrible consequences.” … “like a bad meal, the Equality Act is likely to come up again.” … “Anyone, anywhere, who dissents from the most radical redefinition of gender and the family in history can be sued, harassed and made a pariah, with little recourse.” … “This is a straight-up violation of the First Amendment, which protects both speech and religious belief: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Remember These Names: Three House Republicans Join Dems in Voting to Gut Religious Freedom. Tyler O’Neil – “the “Equality” Act explicitly carves out an exemption from the right of religious freedom — an exemption that only applies to claims of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.” … “Tragically, many Americans actually believe that opposition to LGBT orthodoxy ipso facto constitutes a form of “hate.” … “Opposing the Equality Act isn’t just about preventing a horrific public policy but also about combatting the horrific cancel culture that would demonize dissent on these issues.”

The Proposal for a ‘Commission’ to Investigate the January Protests Isn’t About Seeking Out Any ‘Truths’ or Accountability. Shipwreckedcrew – “The narrative of what the history of January 6 will be is set – now the Democrats need to get started creating history by writing it down.”

“The goal of Pelosi and the Democrats is transparent. They want a Democrat-controlled Commission to create an enduring government “report,” to be adopted by the Democrats while they control both Houses of Congress. The sole purpose of this report will be to equate their political opponents — conservatives who supported Pres. Trump and his MAGA agenda — with the kinds of foreign terrorists who killed thousands by flying passenger planes full of innocent people into buildings on 9/11.

Liberal intolerance as an established religion. Mark Wauck – “a common philosophical outlook regarding human nature and the place of man in reality–is sorely and quite obviously lacking. That much is clear from the concerted liberal assault on key provisions of the Constitution, which is now attacked as enshrining White Supremacy, rather than regarded as empowering all citizens to a full life of citizenship.” … “A few examples of where we are at this moment follow.”

In Final Days, Trump Gave Up On Releasing Russiagate Files, Nunes Prober Says. Aaron Maté – “The House Intelligence Committee’s Kash Patel said senior intelligence officials ‘continuously impeded’ their release – usually by slow-walking their reviews of the material.”

“The media vitriol unnerved Patel, who had previously served as a national security official in the Obama-era Justice Department and Pentagon – a tenure that exceeds his time working under Trump. Patel says that ensuring public disclosure of critical information in such a consequential national security investigation motivated him to take the job in the first place.

If nobody’s home, who called out the Syria airstrike? Monica Showalter – “Seven weeks into his presidency, senile Joe Biden surprised many by calling in a Syria airstrike. … Which was puzzling, given that there seemed to be no immediate threat. And that’s just for starters.”

Estimates: George Floyd Riots To Cost 66 Times More Than Capitol Damage. Tristan Justice – “Capitol Architect J. Brett Blandon told lawmakers Wednesday damage from January’s Capitol riots will likely cost $30 million to cover adequate mental health services, art repairs, and enhanced security.” – mental health services? – “the price tag will go even higher if the new fence expanding the Capitol’s perimeter borders gaslighting the public is kept past March.”

The Imaginary Menace Behind Everything Wrong In America. Paul Bradford – “This white supremacist bogeyman will continue to be seen as America’s primary threat and the one responsible for all manners of misdeeds.” … “You would think that Klansmen are roaming American streets and terrorizing ordinary citizens on a daily basis. You have to worry about a skinhead gang beating you to a bloody pulp every time you go to the supermarket. That’s how this problem is portrayed.”

“Antifa will continue to wreak havoc throughout the country and bodies will pile up from our skyrocketing murder rate. But these will be ignored by the current administration and its allies. They’re too busy looking for white supremacists under the bed.

Biden’s COVID relief bill is chock full of anti-white reverse racism. Betsy McCaughey – “Polls show most Americans support the federal COVID-19 relief bill. But if they knew what’s in it, they might feel differently. The bill is an affront to the American ideal of equal treatment under law — and a slap in the face for people who want everyone helped fairly.”

California Collapsing . Martin Sieff [Strategic Culture Foundation at zerohedge] – “California now fulfills Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s nightmare vision in his prophetic masterpiece “The Possessed” as to what unlimited liberalism must inevitably create – if not stopped in its tracks and rolled back.”

In Report Affirming Nearly No Transmission In Schools, CDC Slips In Shocking Data About Asymptomatic Spread. Georgi Boorman – “If the contagiousness of people without symptoms does not drive the spread of SARS-COV-2, then restrictions like lockdowns and mask mandates on the general public don’t make sense.” … “It’s time solid data from real-world transmission studies, not models, be used to support the basis for the onerous restrictions put on Americans over the past 11 months and continued to this day.”

God, I Hope This Ends Soon, But in the Meantime… Kevin Roche – “One big thing I have re-learned and had reinforced during the epidemic is most experts are idiots. They rest on their laurels, they don’t keep up, they resist innovative thinking and they love the spotlight. They are the last people I trust.” … “So here is what I believe we know, but test it with your own thinking.”

Analysis: Nevada’s $13 billion plan to build solar farms. Norman Rogers – But ‘the plan is useless & will accomplish absolutely nothing beyond rewarding the governor’s political supporters’ … “Nevada governor Sisolak doesn’t follow science; it follows him.”
