Upsy Daisy – It’s a wild ride it is

CSN&Y comes back to the surface with other sixties idioms as the loose minded riot in crime rationalized by political shanigans. Liberty lost worries just a few. Reset is in a feedback loop.

Ed Driscoll at Instapundit — MATT TAIBBI: What Happened to the “Question Authority” Era? Discussion with Author Walter Kirn.

Pandora’s Box and the Innocence of Children. Jonathan Lange — “There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.”

Letters From Union Pacific Police To The DA’s Office Reveal The Real Reason Why We Have Massive Sea Of Stolen Packages Laying On Railroad Tracks Around Our Country – No MSM Coverage.   Bruce Hoenshell — “a little help from the DA would be nice, because t seems that “woke” and “progressive” policies are the real reason why we have these raids on the trains!”

The Democrats Are Attempting A Coup By Lawfare. Wolf Howling — “One way to conduct a coup is to control who can run for elected office.”

Yes, Virginia, the January 6 ‘insurrection’ exists. Lewis Dovland — “and has for a century. But it’s not what the left and the mainstream media have identified.”

We Are All Domestic Terrorists Now. Julie Kelly — “Whether it’s Paul Hodgkins or Mitch McConnell, Democrats like Joe Biden consider all detractors an enemy of the country.” … “facts don’t matter, only the pursuit of power”

“We’re Breaking Her, Keep Going”: ACLU Strategist Issues Chilling Tweet Against Sinema. Jonathan Turley — “What is most notable about Michelsen’s attack (like the diatribes of President Biden) is that they are clearly not working to intimidate these senators. Yet, activists still want to continue against them because they can. The age of rage gives them license to hate and harass. That is enough to “keep it up” in harassing those who hold opposing views.”

Is Ray Epps the Key? John Green — “Is Ray Epps the key to uncovering a deep state conspiracy that many of us have suspected for years?  With what we have witnessed with Midyear Exam, Crossfire Hurricane, the Whitmer Kidnapping, the 2020 election, and now the January 6 “insurrection,” it has become obvious that our government is not that of a healthy functioning democratic republic.”

VA Governor Glenn Youngkin Overturns Mandates and Takes on Critical Race Theory Immediately Upon Taking Office. Kira Davis

Denial Of Natural Immunity In CMS Vaccine Mandate “Unprecedented In Modern History”: Scott Atlas. Allen Zhong and Jan Jekielek via The Epoch Times — “The ruling also disagrees with the dozens of red states who said that CMS failed to consider the benefits of natural immunity.”

Our Post-COVID Loss of Liberty. William Sullivan — “This isn’t a far-fetched hypothetical, and this is a serious question: if our government can do all of that in an effort to manage the distribution of healthcare services, what can’t the government do to manage it?”

this institution cannot give in to dishonorable tactics

a hard-to-kill zombie; fat shaming joining the moral preening chorus; political opposition in extremis; irrational team selection; colonialism doublespeak; 

New Jan. 6 Documentary Sheds Light On Democrats’ War On Domestic Political Opponents. Tristan Justice — “The grand “insurrection” at the Capitol included a majority of demonstrators who were merely trespassing, many of whom were ignorant of the crime they were committing.”

The Jan. 6 Investigation We Need Is Into The Unlawful Military Occupation Of D.C. Mick McGuire — “The illegal use of extraterritorial National Guard soldiers and airmen as a domestic police force against our citizens must have the founders rolling over in their graves.” … “If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi actually desires to evaluate the use and deployment of the U.S. military in domestic operations, she should start with the illegal activity of government officials in the days following Jan. 6 and why an occupying force surrounded our Capitol for months after.”

Jillian Becker: A Terrorism Archive Lost. Scott Johnson — “The loss of an archive, whether by negligence or decision, is a calamity. To lose it by negligence is barbarously callous. To discard it deliberately is an act of intellectual vandalism, the equivalent of book-burning. If, in either case, a university is responsible, the disgrace must leave a permanent stain on its reputation.”

GOP’s Old Guard Out Of Touch With Their Voters On Election Integrity. Mollie Hemingway — “The response of the old guard of the Republican Party this week has been to wholeheartedly endorse the media narrative that the 2020 election had no significant problems, while also opposing Biden’s plan to run elections. It’s a politically insane approach.”

McConnell Fact-Checks Biden.  Scott Johnson — “this institution cannot give in to dishonorable tactics. We cannot surrender to recklessness. We have to stand up, stand strong, protect the Senate, and defend our country.”

Biden’s Cabinet: A slew of mediocrity and incompetence. Patricia McCarthy — “The farther left their personal ideology, the better; the more boxes they tick, the better — race, class, sex, sexual orientation. Critical thinking not required.  Allegiance to America and its Constitution definitely not required.  Among this crowd, the more anti-American, the better.”

Woke Capitalism, Unilever Edition. John Hinderaker — “woke capitalism marches on, a hard-to-kill zombie.”

Colonialism for me, but not for thee [Joe Mannix] — “Colonialism” is yet another example of the Left’s assault on language.” … “Doublespeak. It’s what’s for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. Unless your culture doesn’t value three meals a day, of course. We wouldn’t want to be colonial about it.”

Our Bizarre Devotion to COVID Vaccines. Henry F. Smith, Jr., — “In a sensible world, given this data, public health officials would quietly back away from the insistence on mass inoculation and begin to feature therapeutics in their approach to COVID.” … “None of this passes any test of common sense. More and more I think people are beginning to realize this, and are growing skeptical.” … “There is an alternate way, as shown by countries as diverse as India, Mexico, and Japan. We need to encourage early treatment, with cheap, safe, and proven antiviral therapy”

If limiting the unvaxxed is wise, what about limiting fat people? Selwyn Duke — “should the portly be limited in how much food they may buy and what kind?  Should they be forced to exercise?  They’re costing us all money, you know.”

‘Preposterous’ doesn’t cut it anymore, Eric Utter — “My fellow Americans, think of where we were just two or three years ago.  “Preposterous” doesn’t begin to describe what has transpired since.  Or how we have allowed it to occur.”

From MLK to Ray Epps with a stop for Fauci

The nature of the human animal; the rusty hulk of a political ship is taking on water; #BareShelvesBiden is trending; new rules and consequences; Kazakh surfaces as another Biden scandal; MLK known by the fruit it bears; empire and history distortions noticed; Ray Epps and more government corruption; COViD FUD.

An Orthodox Rabbi Writes That People Are Basically Good — Judaism Is in Trouble. Dennis Prager — “This is one of the most foolish and dangerous ideas of the secular world. No Abrahamic religion — not Judaism, not Christianity, not Islam — asserts that people are basically good. This notion is a product of the secular age and a major reason for the moral confusion that characterizes our era.”

The Sinking Ship of the Democratic-Media Alliance. Conrad Black — “The Democratic-media alliance gambled everything on 2020 but in corrupting democracy in the name of protecting the country from an enemy of democracy, they tied themselves to a sinking ship.” — “The Democrats can’t sell the bunk that January 6 was an “insurrection;” they can’t wish away concerns about the integrity of the 2020 election.”

Although Trump had a successful administration—practically eliminating illegal immigration, unemployment, and oil imports, shaping up the Western alliance, and deterring China, North Korea, and Iran from the endless provocations they had inflicted on previous presidents—it was impossible for him to defend himself against conditions created by the COVID pandemic and magnified by the Trump-hating media. For good measure, the Democrats seized the opportunity created by the pandemic, to alter election and vote-counting laws in the six swing states they focused on (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin).  … 

The Democrats, along with America and the world, are now stuck with the most incompetent administration in the country’s history. … 

The Democratic media have been exposed as morally bankrupt in their rabid partisanship and dishonesty. 

The Biden Variant — Not Omicron — Is Behind The Shortages Everywhere. I & I Editorial Board — “#BareShelvesBiden is trending on Twitter, shoppers are sharing pictures of empty store shelves, and the media are being forced – however reluctantly – to report that shortages are actually a worsening problem.” — “Unfortunately, far too many voters were duped into believing that Biden was competent, or at least more competent than President Trump. And now we’re all paying the price for their gullibility.”

Hollywood’s New Rules. Peter Kiefer and Peter Savodnik — “The old boys club is dead. But a new one—with its own litmus tests and landmines—is rapidly replacing it. ‘This is all going to end in a giant class-action lawsuit.’

My Breakup Letter To The Salvation Army. Ace of Spades — “Conservative media has given much coverage recently to The Salvation Army’s heartbreaking embrace of critical race theory. … Unsurprisingly, donations plummeted this Christmas season…. The evaporation of financial support speaks more strongly than any written words, but I also felt it necessary to personally write The Salvation Army to let them know of my disappointment and disgust as I suspend further financial contributions to this once great charity. This is the letter I sent to the local Salvation Army commander last month.”

Bombshell ZH Reporting On Kazakh Situation. Mark Wauck — “Direct Links To Hunter And Zhou?” — “Kazakh Security Chief Arrested For Treason Was “Close Friends” With Bidens” — “People want to know whether he did that at the behest of Zhou. Certainly the Russians will say so—and why not, given the aggressive US moves and rhetoric of the past months?”

Time to Re-Evaluate the Legacy of Martin Luther King. Vince Everett Ellison — “After finding evidence that the “man of God” and “moral conscience of our nation,” the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participated in the rape of a parishioner, engaged in numerous sex orgies, received cash payments from known communists, and admitted that he was a Marxist, King biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Garrow wrote of King, “There is no question that a profoundly painful reckoning and reconsideration inescapably awaits.” — “This reckoning should happen because Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement have failed Black people.”

In explaining how to recognize a false prophet, Jesus said, “A tree is known by the fruit it bears.”  He said you cannot get bad fruit from a good tree.  The fruits of the Black community, almost unanimously, are rotten to the core.

Alone at the Twilight of Empire. Jesse Russell — “Thomas Jefferson famously reminded those Americans who dismissed the Amerindians they were in the process of subjugating as irredeemably savage that their own Northern European ancestors were likewise considered irredeemably savage by the Romans who had conquered them.” — “Gilley’s book, titled The Last Imperialist: Sir Alan Burns’ Epic Defense of the British Empire is a crushing broadside against the left-wing celebration of de-colonialization.” — “rational, documented arguments for colonialism do not matter in a time in which the criterion for correctness is no longer truth and the standard for rightness is not justice but rather the will to power and violence.”

Who Is Ray Epps?’ Cruz Grills FBI on Involvement in Jan. 6. Nick Arama — “Jill Sanborn, executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. That’s when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked some very good questions to which she didn’t have a response.”

We’re having a lot of fun testimony in Congress today that’s very informative.

We saw Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ending Dr. Anthony Fauci, finishing him off with a picture for the ages which he, Fauci, provided. Then there was Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) who is also a doctor like Paul, who grilled Fauci over the DARPA report and the gain of function lie. Fauci had another huge meltdown and, again, had to be rescued by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), who claimed she wasn’t going to allow “personal attacks.” Getting at the truth is now a “personal attack” to Democrats — when it might expose things.

But the Biden team had another big problem today; it wasn’t just Fauci being exposed.

The FBI refuses to deny any involvement in events on January 6. Andrea Widburg — “The three most disturbing questions involve Ray Epps, the missing “restricted area” signs and fences, and the Scaffold Commander.”

The January 6th Committee Releases an Incredibly Odd Statement After Ted Cruz Asks About Ray Epps. Bonchie — “he interest in Epps stems from two things. One, he was caught on video inciting people to riot and break into the Capitol Building. He was also on the Capitol grounds that day. Two, Epps was suddenly removed from the FBI’s most-wanted list, and to this day, no explanation at all for that move has been given. The implication there is obvious, i.e. that Epps was an informant and had used his position to actively encourage violence for the FBI.”

The Likely Cause of the Media Blackout on Imploding Whitmer Kidnapping Plot. Julie Kelly — “It is impossible to report on the Whitmer case without connecting it to January 6. So rather than do its job, the national news media is completely ignoring this sensational story.”

Ashli Babbitt’s murderer exonerated in disgraceful official investigation. Thomas Lifson — “American cities burned when a career criminal named George Floyd died in police custody while on a lethal dose of fentanyl.  But Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt was shot to death by a senior Capitol Police officer — a lieutenant — with a troubling history and was exonerated by an official investigation without even being interviewed. … Because Ms. Babbitt was the wrong race and of the wrong political persuasion, there is no fanning the flames of resentment, no riots, and no justice for Ashli Babbitt and her family.”

Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan step forward to fight Pelosi’s Jan. 6 witch hunt. David Zukerman — “A comment in the amicus brief goes to the heart of this matter.  “For Executive Privilege to fulfill its intended purpose of allowing full and free communication among Presidential advisors, it must be able to survive a party change in the Presidency and a hostile Congress.” 

Fauci wriggles like a fish on a hook when questioned about DARPA. Andrea Widburg — “On Monday, Project Veritas released documents showing that an organization called EcoHealth Alliance approached the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (AKA DARPA) seeking funding for its research into SARS viruses in rats, only to be turned down because of DARPA’s gain of function concerns.” … “Major Murphy’s summary …  I’ll focus on two points. … The first is that, since April 2020, it’s been known within the government that both ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are curatives because of how they interact with the virus’s engineered spike protein.  I happen to believe that the administrative state, Democrat party, and media (but I repeat myself) quashed this information, first to destroy Trump’s re-election chances and then to maintain steady pressure on Americans to conform to the jab regime.”

Our COVID-19 Research Summary – 2021. Fred Lipfert — “Is the Pandemic Ebbing, Or Still Menacing the Careless? COVID-19 Status Update.” — “The published literature on COVID now exceeds 211,000 papers, books, and documents, which include: 22,866 observational studies, 19,591 reviews, 1496 meta-analyses and 781 randomized control trials. These publications comprise the backdrop for our research and writing. The project began in the spring of 2020 based on a limited source of cumulative COVID-19 data and has broadened considerably. Here is what we have learned.”

Rollout Of The COVID Antivirals: Clown Show #2. Josh Bloom — “Finally, there are antiviral drugs that will keep people with COVID out of the hospital (and the morgue). But, good luck getting a prescription if you should need it. The FDA has pretty much guaranteed that this will be almost impossible. Here’s why.”

‘Woke’ Scientific American Goes Anti-GMO. Cameron English — “Scientific American’s descent from respected publication to ideological tabloid is nearly complete. The magazine is now promoting anti-GMO activism under the guise of “social justice.”

Sovereign fraud and lost minds

In the South, it was ‘the war between the states.’ Hiding evidence by prosecutors, state officials, and others is a pandemic. Ignorance runs rampant where reason and care is needed.

Voting Rights, Lies, And Videotape. Scott Johnson — “Yeah, it’s a little over the top, but so is calling it “voting rights.” That is the fundamental issue.” — “Anybody who accepts the Democrats’ terms of the argument by reference to “voting rights” is a knowing or unknowing hack. By contrast with the Democrats’ spiel about “voting rights,” the McConnell critique of the Democrats’ bill has the advantage of truth.”

Hemingway: Mike Rounds, Other GOP Leaders Need To Quickly Learn Basic Facts About Election Integrity. “There are problems with one in eight voter registrations across the country,” Hemingway said. “And there are all sorts of problems with decreasing security with the rampant rise of mail-in ballots.”

Did Fauci Interfere In The 2020 Election? Special Counsel Says It’s A ‘Close Call’. Tristan Justice — ‘Dr. Fauci disregarded its best practices around the Hatch Act and enabled his official position to be used ‘to make a political point.”

 

When a State’s Secretary of State is in on Voter Fraud. Jay Valentine — “We coined the term “sovereign fraud” right here on American Thinker.” … “Let’s take you through our excellent adventure working with voter integrity groups across the country.  You need to understand their dedication, resilience, and the odds they face when the reddest states’ Secretary of State is in on “it.” — “There is no way to guarantee free and fair elections until citizens receive 100% visibility to all voter rolls, without writing a $30,000 check, to keep these sovereign outlaws or lazies honest and active.”

Wrongly Imprisoned Real Estate Broker Demands Investigation of Ohio Prosecutors. Rachel Alexander — “Viola only got out of prison due to an employee of the prosecution, Dawn Pasela, becoming so disgusted with the suppression of evidence showing the banks weren’t tricked and other corruption such as missing computers full of evidence that she changed sides, helping Viola conduct a successful appeal pro se from prison.”

What Issue Was Really at the Heart of the Civil War, and is it Relevant Today? William Sullivan — “Most Americans today have a romanticized (and extraordinarily narrow) historical understanding of the conflict that we call the Civil War. … the true story is important because it’s incredibly relevant today.”

Dumbing down history to simple, easily digestible falsehoods (like “the Civil War was fought to free the slaves,” for example) is the easiest and most effective way to make those falsehoods common knowledge.  That’s why the leftist propagandists and racial grievance hustlers in academia, the media, and the government do it. …

… if the people of a state surmise that the federal government is pursuing policy which comprises the liberty and prosperity of its citizens, does that state have to conform to what is perceived by the people of the state as unconstitutional abuse of power, or can it express its autonomy and liberty without the prospect of being attacked by the federal government for having done so?

That is the central question that was at the heart of the Civil War.  And we are fools to not consider that it’s the likeliest question that will be at the heart of the next one, or to understand that it’s certainly the question at the heart of the semi-cold war between right and left in America today.

LA Times: It’s necessary to mock the deaths of the unvaccinated. Jazz Shaw — “predictable, ghoulish end-zone dancing on social media that we regularly hear from supporters of mandates and immunity passports. While most people in the media are compassionate enough (or at least politically sensible enough) to condemn such callous behavior, the Los Angeles times managed to find someone to take the opposite position.” — “What we’re witnessing here is only the latest, though perhaps an over-the-top example of a phenomenon we’ve been warning about and tracking from the start of the pandemic. ”

The liberal justices’ lies reveal the left’s addiction to virus fears. Jonathan S. Tobin — “It’s fair to ask how three of the people who are supposedly among the smartest in the land could be so poorly informed. But it also speaks volumes about the way the mainstream media has helped spread COVID dishonesty intended to fuel the kind of fear of the disease that lies behind these fibs.” … “The high court hearing wasn’t just fodder for a fact check that earned liberal judges scorn. It should be a wake-up call for the rest of us to understand that the real problem here isn’t a disease. It’s the way those who ought to know better have gone along with fearmongering intended to quash opposition to the most heavy-handed COVID regulations regardless of the truth.”

Now They Tell Us! John Hinderaker — “The CDC and other government agencies grossly overhyped the covid epidemic. Many suspect that this was done intentionally, in order to drive President Trump from office. The best argument against this hypothesis is that foreign government agencies were nearly as panic-stricken as our own.”

More Simple, Honest Questions About COVID-19. Jeff M. Lewis — “Would the reader agree that it has become particularly tiresome hearing from all the “experts” who continue to be wrong and continue to move the goalposts? For me, it is especially infuriating that the responses to the simple, honest questions are usually ad hominem attacks instead of rational, reasoned, respectful, and honest discussions about the issues at hand.”

It turns out that, if you doubted COVID’s deadliness, you were correct. Andrea Widburg — “It’s been very weird for those of us who have maintained some degree of objectivity about the whole COVID uproar to see leftists maintain their high degree of terror about COVID despite their being vaccinated and boosted. ”

It’s Time To Drop The Hysteria And Learn To Live With COVID. Bruce Pardy via The Epoch Times — “For the past 23 months, the real pandemic has not been COVID but anxiety.” … “COVID is a righteous platform from which to rage against non-conformists.” … “As a health crisis, COVID is over. The hysteria, however, will be more stubborn.”

Omissions, evasions, hysteria, psychosis, hot winds.

Value systems need consistency and they need some effort to rise above stupidity and ignorance.VDH describes. Zinn and the 1619 offspring get a review. The J6 narrative and its major players are questioned. Molne must be on target of the flak is any measure. Hinderaker cites physics versus the energy irrationality.

What Makes Riots, Conspiracies, Cabals, and Insurrections ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’? Victor Davis Hanson — “Shut up and keep quiet; that is all ye need to know.” … “good is a Congress going to unprecedented lengths to destroy an effective president with a successful record. Bad is a Congress impotently attempting to block a failed president with a catastrophic record. ”

The Disgraceful Howard Zinn. Michael Burlingame — “Howard Zinn’s polemical history of the United States is distorted, manipulative, and dishonest.” … “Mary Grabar’s Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation against America performs a valuable service by examining Zinn’s polemical volume and revealing “just how distorted, manipulative, and plain dishonest” it truly is.”

Exporting Our Worst Product: Wokeness. A.J. Rice — “Something America ought to export to other — more normal — societies? Because it’s been such a success in America? Like Crystal Pepsi and the Ford Edsel?”

Fact checker misstates facts at The Washington Post promoting a January 6 narrative. DC Observer — “If The Washington Post fact checker articles continue to omit pertinent information for its readers, then the mainstream media will continue to be distrusted and viewed as the propaganda wing of the Democrat party.”

Disgraced FBI No. 2 Andrew McCabe Calls For Feds To Treat ‘Mainstream’ Conservatives Like Domestic Terrorists. Evita Duffy — “Sadly, McCabe’s dishonest version of January 6 is happily accepted by the academic elites who invited him Thursday night. His frighteningly despotic views and policy prescriptions will likely be accepted and implemented by his young listeners.”

More coincidences in Georgia: Some counties destroyed videos that could showcase ballot-harvesting. Monica Showalter — “Good luck investigating ballot-harvesting in Georgia’s 2020 election.”

What actually happened on January 6, 2021? John F. Di Leo — “For a year now, there has been a constant drumbeat in the press about January 6, 2020.  It went into overdrive this past week.” … “There are important questions…but for a solid year, the courts dismissed challenges on technicalities, and the press has condescendingly dismissed allegations as “disproven” when in fact the charges have never been given a chance to be proven or disproven.”

Leftist Supreme Court Justices Abandoned The Law And Made Up Facts. Ted Noel, M.D. — “In Supreme Court arguments on the OSHA COVID Vaccination Mandate case, the “Wise Latina” revealed at least Sixth Degree Stupidity for all to see.” … “All this hysteria derives from the near-complete suppression of scientific facts from the public square.”

The Supreme Court and Congress Humiliate Themselves. Clarice Feldman — “Two important cases came before the Supreme Court this week and, in Congress, the Nancy Pelosi Reichstag Fire Revisited was being played out. In both cases, these bodies deserved our disrespect for their violation of established norms and display of ignorance.”

Here’s the Fact Check on Mike Pompeo That Was Too Much Even for Some Liberal Media Members. Matt Vespa — “There is nothing but bad news when it comes to Joe Biden and the Democrats, so some in the media decided to fact check Mike Pompeo…for losing weight?” … “Frankly, the overarching theme here is that it’s really none of your business, Kansas City Star. Who cares? Mr. Pompeo is healthier. Does that give you agita? It would have been best just to leave this space blank”

Claims of ‘Mass Formation Psychosis’ Set the Left’s Hair on Fire. Bonchie — “the fact that millions of Americans have been driven into some level of mental instability regarding COVID-19 has been apparent.” … “The AP couldn’t be missing the point harder if they tried. The idea behind mass formation psychosis is not that people are literally hypnotized, i.e., as you’d see in the movies where someone crows like a rooster and stops smoking. Rather, it’s a way to express the collective irrationality being shown by millions of people who will literally do anything to try to “stop the spread,” no matter how ineffective the measures being promoted are.”

Mass Formation Psychosis. The Madness of Crowds. And The End Of Progressive America. William A. Jacobson — “Hope in the midst of despair. But first, things will fall apart, so get ready.” … “I am familiar with, and often quote, Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, by Charles Mackay (1841, revision 1852)(emphasis added):” … “So there you have it. Mass Formation Psychosis. The Madness of Crowds. And The End Of The Progressive March Through Institutions. All connected somehow. Hope in the midst of despair.”

Why Doesn’t Google Want You to Know About ‘Mass Formation Psychosis’? Ethan Reese — “if someone were searching for “mass formation psychosis,” certainly Malone’s article would appear at the top, right? … It appears Bing and Yahoo may think so. But Google, perhaps not so much.”

How Bad Is the Data on COVID? New Numbers From New York Provide Insight. Stacy Lennox — “To competently manage any situation, accurate information is a requirement. … Unfortunately, it is becoming more apparent that the corporate media and public health officials have subjected us to inaccurate data and word games for the last two years.” … “For almost two years, political leaders have governed many Americans’ lives using imprecise, misleading, and sometimes deceptive data. It is impossible to believe that, in the nation that gave birth to Big Tech, our healthcare agencies could not collect accurate data with appropriate privacy controls.”

Early Outpatient COVID Treatment – Why is There Still no Plan? Brian C. Joondeph, M.D. — “For most infections, early treatment is imperative to prevent late complications.” … “COVID has been with us for almost two years and yet there are still not officially and medical establishment endorsed outpatient treatment protocols to keep infected individuals out of hospitals” … “What we are doing is the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, when reality says otherwise. What’s that the definition of?”

“The Drug Does Not Appear to Qualify for Release” – EXCLUSIVE: Post Office Holds Woman’s Foreign Shipment of Ivermectin at the Request of the FDA. Jim Hoft — “Despite all the stories, testimonies, and studies showing Ivermectin as effective early treatment of COVID-19, the Food and Drug Administration has refused to authorize the drugs — that have been saving lives for decades– for Covid treatment”

 

 When The Wind Doesn’t Blow. John Hinderaker — “The political push to transform our electrical grid into reliance on “renewable” wind and solar energy keeps running into the laws of physics. The laws of physics are going to win, but the economic carnage in the meantime will be terrible.” … “On energy, we are in a race against time. We need to inform voters before the lavishly-funded “green” energy lobby destroys our electrical grid and our economy, at great profit to them but at ruinous loss to the rest of us.”

The utility of the lie in creating a false reality

a dystopian science fiction novel. SCOTUS clown show competing with the Congress J6 fooforaw. no justification for he obscenity. 

What Is the Great Reset? Michael Rectenwald — “It can be traced at least as far back as the inception of the WEF, originally founded as the European Management Forum, in 1971.” … “In addition to being promoted as a response to COVID, the Great Reset is promoted as a response to climate change.” … “As if the economic and governmental resets were not dramatic enough, the technological reset reads like a dystopian science fiction novel. “

The specific phrase “Great Reset” came into general circulation over a decade ago, with the publication of a 2010 book, The Great Reset, by American urban studies scholar Richard Florida. Written in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, Florida’s book argued that the 2008 economic crash was the latest in a series of Great Resets—including the Long Depression of the 1870s and the Great Depression of the 1930s—which he defined as periods of paradigm-shifting systemic innovation. ….

… Because the goals of the Great Reset depend on the obliteration not only of free markets, but of individual liberty and free will, it is, perhaps ironically, unsustainable. Like earlier attempts at totalitarianism, the Great Reset is doomed to ultimate failure. That doesn’t mean, however, that it won’t, again like those earlier attempts, leave a lot of destruction in its wake­—which is all the more reason to oppose it now and with all our might. 

Jordan Peterson says Joe Rogan beats ratings of legacy media because ‘he doesn’t lie’. Matthew Miller — “”That’s because he doesn’t lie. Or talk down to his audience. Or manipulate for his own narrow advantage,” Peterson tweeted.”

The Battle of Cowpens highlights our disgraceful National Park Service. Wolf Howling — “It is run by progressives playing COVID kabuki theatre to limit access to the parks, and it partners with partisan tech giants to control information.  Like so many of today’s federal agencies, they need to be dismantled, the ground where their offices stood needs to be salted, and the organization rebuilt from the ground up.  In particular, NPS’s plans for the 221st anniversary of the Battle of Cowpens are an obscenity.” … “Bottom line: There is no justification for what NPS is doing with our history. ”

Even SCOTUS leftists have to lie to further the left’s Wuhan virus narrative. Trevor Thomas — “Make no mistake about it: leftists lie.  This is especially true of leftists in politics and the media.” … “If you’re going to lie to further a narrative, you should at least be good at it — especially if you’re sitting on the highest court in the land.  This was indeed an embarrassing effort by the lying left! … Chief Justice Roberts has fretted about the Court maintaining its prestige and non-political status.  After the lies and outright buffoonery yesterday, I will never look at the Court the same way.  The damage to its standing is gigantic and irreversible for the foreseeable future.” 

Leftist Supreme Court justices are trying to legislate their ignorance. Andrea Widburg — “After reading about Friday’s Supreme Court hearing the power of federal agencies to impose far-reaching vaccine mandates, a friend asked me how Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor could be so completely ignorant about COVID. … the accurate answer is that leftist Supreme Court justices care nothing about the law.  They view themselves as an unelected legislature and are guided by their personal fears. … They’ve made it plain that, to protect themselves, they’re willing to ignore the Constitution; make policy from the bench; and, along the way, destroy America.”

The public isn’t buying the Democrats’ Jan. 6 ‘narrative’ foofaraw, poll shows. Monica Showalter — “Democrats have put on a political extravaganza for the voters around the events of Jan. 6.” … “In a way, it’s stupidity, given that they are so out of step with the wishes of voters.  But obtaining power by cheating now seems to be how they get things done, so it doesn’t bother them.  It may work for a while, but these polls show that voters are on to them.  They can’t cheat if the margins are big, and polls show that they are big.”

Political violence and Trump’s reactions on January 6, 2021. Jonathan Cohen — “January 6 is a complicated story.  For the Democrats, it is a Reichstag Fire moment, a chance to pulverize their political opposition.  For the Republicans, it is an awkward story because while they don’t approve of the violence that took place that day, they do believe they were taken to the cleaners by Democrat operatives who used the pandemic as an excuse to completely change the way we vote in order to alter the outcome of the election.” … “The truth is that Trump told his supporters to be peaceful.  … He clearly did nothing illegal.  What he refused to agree with was that the anger of the demonstrators was unwarranted.  He has refused to call them traitors or declare that their anger was unjustified.”

Riots, Then And Now. John Hinderaker — “The 2017 riot was, what? 1,000 times as destructive as the January 6, 2021 riot? 10,000 times as destructive? And yet none of the rioters sat in jail for a year awaiting trial.”

Why are Caucasians Vanisihing in TV Commercials? Jacob Fraden — “Caucasians are still in the majority, but now on TV and the Internet, they are swept under the rug like trash. … So why do advertisers ignore the long-standing rules of marketing, and to the detriment of their own financial interests, fill the media space with content that displaces and degrades its biggest market segment?”

So what are we to do? I am not calling anyone to the barricades but only ask: Don’t live by lies. The least any of us can do today is not participate in lies of the CRT and other political correctness: not watch their movies, not read their newspapers, not vote for the conformist candidates, not support them financially, and certainly never buy anything that in a politically correct manner is singing and dancing on a TV or computer screen.

We Need More ‘Toxic Masculinity’. Armando Simón — “Nature doesn’t ask your permission; it doesn’t care about your wishes, or whether you like its laws or not. You’re obliged to accept it as it is, and consequently all its results as well.” ― Fyodor Dostoevsky,

a dangerous revolutionary cycle

Silicon Kabuki. radio chatter.  The state has evidence.Who needs data? Is it really a conspiracy?

Who Are the Real Insurrectionists? Victor Davis Hanson — “Stone-cold sober elites are systematically waging a far more dangerous and insidious revolution in the shadows than anything threatened by the American Right.”

We are in a dangerous revolutionary cycle. But the threat is not so much from loud, buffoonish one-day rioters on January 6. Such clownish characters did not for 120 days loot, burn, attack courthouses and police precincts, cause over 30 deaths, injure 2,000 policemen, and destroy at least $2 billion in property—all under the banner of revolutionary justice.

the authorities have made more than 700 arrests — with little sign of slowing down. Ann Althouse — “Yes, 700+ people have been arrested for the things we saw happening before our eyes on January 6th, but that didn’t take a sophisticated investigation to discover. A big outdoor protest turned into an indoor event. They broke in where they weren’t allowed. That was as bad as it was, but it ended that day. What else was there? Apparently there’s “little indication” of anything else, but who knows “how high the investigation might reach”?”

Seattle police improperly faked Proud Boys radio talk during 2020 protests, watchdog group finds. Kipp Robertson, Ted Land — “Officers may have used fake radio chatter in an attempt to see if their radio transmissions were compromised, a lieutenant said.”

Kazakhstan: Hey, Liz! Here’s what a real Jan. 6 insurrection looks like. Monica Showalter — “Sound anything like what happened on Jan. 6? The land of Borat has just thrown a spanner into the works for that best-laid Democrat plan.”

Over in Kazakhstan, we got a toppled government. We got a presidential palace on fire. We got a burning parliament. Bodies stacked in the morgues. Cop cars on fire. Blood in the street, dead people, beheadings, concussion grenades, a mayor’s office on fire, armed protestors who shoot back, dead cops, a beheading, armored personnel carriers, tanks, military trucks, a dictator’s remaining minions fighting like cornered rats, and thousands of Russian troops being airlifted in,

There Was No Insurrection But There Was A Coup. Vince Coyner — “The debate is over. After a year spent investigating claims of election fraud, the media has determined that any fraud in the 2020 election was too insignificant to have changed the outcome and Joe Biden legitimately won. Now we can get back to our normal lives, or whatever passes for normal now…except that’s fiction.” … “Mark Anthony could only eulogize Caesar after the Ides of March, but Donald Trump is still very much with us. We still have an opportunity to reverse this treachery and avert the disaster that naturally follows when the Rule of Man subverts the Rule of Law. But will we seize it before it’s too late?”

New York Times Offers Stunning Report on Left-Wing Racial Fundraising. A.J. Kaufman — “With nearly 3,000 words of interviews and assorted content, he explores how much money — nearly $25 billion it turns out — was donated by progressive elites to divisive racial endeavors after the May 2020 killing of George Floyd.” … “This institutional caving-in to bogus theories of racial inequity and victimhood is mind-blowing and also poses a great danger to Democrats because these causes are so far left of where even their voters are, much less where everyday Americans are.”

Capitalists: Paying For The Rope To Hang Them. Steven Hayward — “Liberal political analyst Thomas Byrne Edsall, who along with David Shor, Ruy Teixeira, and a handful of other liberals of relative sobriety, notes today in the New York Times the huge increase in contributions to “racial equity” causes since George Floyd’s death. Using data assembled by an organization called Candid, the numbers are staggering” … “in a little more than a year, capitalist philanthropy to radical racial causes was three times larger than the total philanthropy of the previous decade. (Don’t hold your breath for a close accounting of how the money is spent.)”

“Fake It Till You Make It”: The Holmes Conviction is an Indictment of Business and Media Practices. Jonathan Turley — “The prosecution put a spotlight on the fraudulent practices rampant in Silicon Valley where executives often invoke the rule that, to be successful, you have to “fake it till you make it.” It is often more than a simple adage to be bold and confident.” … “Holmes would have been a modest fraudulent enterprise without the help of the media.”

Kevin Roche: Mask Delusion. Scott Johnson — “The Star Tribune “has actually been pretty good about publishing” his columns, he writes, but he “apparently went a heresy too far this week.” They declined this column.”

The state has evidence in its possession showing that masks have no impact, either in general or in schools, but refuses to release that information and is stonewalling my Data Practices Act requests, which is itself evidence that they know the lack of effect. It is time for everyone to ask themselves what evidence really supports masking as an effective tool against spread and why we continue to encourage, much less force, futile and potentially damaging measures.

Boom! Malone Goes THERE, THERE, And THERE. Mark Wauck — “This is not crazy conspiracy talk–it’s their own web site, and you can find it on my Gettert account. I posted it yesterday. Make your own assessment.””

Tyranny in the Name of Climate Change. Anthony Watts — “raising serious and worrisome questions about the role of academia in our national political debate on climate change.” … “disturbing because it completely ignores the will of the people to self-govern, favoring a totalitarian approach” … “Why is this consistently not reported?” … “According to the disaster database, there isn’t any “climate crisis” at all.”… “Sadly, and frighteningly, as illustrated by Mittiga in the Cambridge University Press, the green socialist left is increasingly embracing tyranny in the form of authoritarian power to act on their viewpoint on climate change. But clearly, real-world data don’t support their viewpoint let alone their call to action.”

J6, Pandemic, Green Energy – hysteria and psychosis 0n parade

See the strings on the marionettes? Who cares (anymore)” Think witchcraft went out of the mainstream? Really? And just where is the green dividend?

The Big Lie & The Elastic Truth: How To Invent A Coup. Frank Miele via RealClearPolitics.com — “I’ve taken a guilty pleasure recently in watching the faux intellectuals on MSNBC and CNN pass judgment on not just Donald Trump, but also on everyone who shares his disdain for authoritarian pronouncements on COVID-19, election integrity, climate change and a host of other issues.” … “after studying Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, Jake Tapper and the late, lamented Chris Cuomo, liberalism today is characterized by a low regard for the intelligence of average Americans and a very high regard for the elastic nature of language.”

The choice of two diametrically opposed futures has not been so clear since the Civil War, and Democrats — just as they did in that great conflict — seem intent once again on proving the truth of Lincoln’s dictum that “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

January 6th anniversary: the invented coup lives on… neo — “The Democrats and the MSM are planning a big big celebration of their finest propaganda hour. — But how many people other than the leftist core care anymore?”

Media Begins Their Week Long J6 Attack on Democracy Narrative Engineering Effort. Sundance — “Despite the predictability and transparency of the propaganda effort, the media and democrats are going all-in. … We can likely expect an entire week of building apoplexy culminating in some form of DC release.” — “Once you see the strings on the marionettes, it’s impossible to return to that moment when you did not see them.”

Some Covid Links. Don Boudreaux — “Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff – who, along with Sunetra Gupta, wrote the great Great Barrington Declaration – decry Francis Collins’s and Anthony Fauci’s attack on traditional public health. — “Alarmed by unilateral COVID-19 restrictions, states are imposing new limits on executive authority” – so reports Reason‘s Eric Boehm. — Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby warns against taking ‘expert’ predictions too seriously. — Tim Stanley argues that “[m]asks in schools are as pointless as they are cruel.” — more”

White Coats for Black Queer Abolitionist Socialism. John D. Sailer — “A national organization of medical students successfully pressures their schools to embrace radical identity politics.” … “These medical schools are being forthright about their new priorities. White Coats for Black Lives has already had much success in its mission to transform medical education. The next stop will be the medical field itself.”

Myopic politicians are wilfully blind to the truth about green energy. Paul Homewood — “Britain it has been made much worse by energy policies which for a decade and a half have doggedly pursued the objective of cutting carbon emissions without any regard to the costs.” … “How bizarre that politicians who on one day will lecturing us on poverty, and energy poverty in particular, and on the next day will be proposing to drive up household bills to reach carbon reduction targets … As most people will correctly work out for themselves when they receive their inflated energy bills this spring, the biggest danger they face is not being fried or drowned in a slightly warmer world – it is succumbing to hypothermia because they cannot afford to heat their homes.”

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.”

Nouns aren’t actable

Chickens find home to roost – rights from God versus human sin – symbols and slogans cur deep – Sharyl needs your help – teachers show the contempt of their ilk.

Sowing Winds and Reaping Whirlwinds. Victor Davis Hanson — “The Left is being consumed by its own hatreds and hubris.” … “there were reasons why Socrates advised “Know thyself,” why the oracle at Delphi emblemized “Nothing too much”—and why you reap what you sow.”

In Strine-Accented Newspeak, Freedom Means Submission. Peter Smith — “Our freedoms to speak freely, to assemble, to travel, to engage in the ordinary business of life are God-given, I’ve written. So they are, but rulers and governments can take them away, as they have throughout most of history. The people of Hong Kong are feeling it now, as are the women in Afghanistan, as did the East Germans before the wall came down, as did dissenters in revolutionary France.”

You’ll never believe the latest evidence of an ‘insurrection’. Andrea Widburg — “On December 24, Biden gave America the gift of self-denunciation.” … “Here’s the prank, which was polite and, to a lot of people, bespeaks frustration with rising inflation, a failed COVID policy, insane energy prices, and (still) the fiasco of Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal”

I honestly don’t know how this madness ends.  The drive-by media will do anything to enshrine the Democrat party in permanent power, and if this means turning anyone who opposes the political agenda into an enemy of the state who must be placed in a gulag like the prison in which the January 6 detainees languish, so be it.  As good little communists, they will do whatever it takes, unconstrained either by moral decency or a little thing called the Constitution.

‘Let’s go, Brandon’ is much more than a cheesy nickname for Biden. Christopher Garbacz — “Why is the slogan so powerful?  Partly, it’s powerful, as noted above, because it’s a reaction to Biden’s “central government gone wild,” with all the inevitable terrible results.  The other reason is that it’s slipped lose from Democrat control over American institutions.  Hollywood, the media, and the political class — all leftist dominated — can’t stop it.”

Sharyl Attkisson needs your help to nail the federal government for spying on her computer. Thomas Lifson — “Her landmark lawsuit against the federal government for spying on her computer entered a new, vitally important, and expensive phase: discovery, in which she can demand and the court can enforce access to documents and other evidence held in the files of the federal government.” … “Pushing forward to identify the culprits and holding them legally liable is an important goal for those who wish the preserve the Republic as founded.” Lifson has a Go-Fund-Me link.

Teacher Mocks Parents as Bigots at School Board Meeting for Objecting to CRT and Adult Content in Books. Mike LaChance — ““These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season./ Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason./ It could be perhaps critical thinking causes fright./ It could be their heads aren’t screwed on just right.” — “Progressives are kicking a hornets’ nest by provoking parents. None of this will be forgotten in the midterms.”

I Woke Lucy. Lou Aguilar [cripppled site – see Instapundit] — “At least Aaron Sorkin isn’t Steven Spielberg.” … “It’s heartbreaking and a little chilling to see members of the artistic community resegregating ourselves,” Sorkin said. “This should be the last place there are walls. Spanish and Cuban are not actable. If I was directing you in a scene and said: ‘It’s cold, you can’t feel your face.’ That’s actable. But if I said: ‘Be Cuban.’ That is not actable. Nouns aren’t actable. Gay and straight aren’t actable. You can act being attracted to someone but can’t act gay or straight. So this notion that only gay actors should play gay characters? That only a Cuban actor should play Desi? Honestly, I think it’s the mother of all empty gestures and a bad idea.” Categorize issues by actable and see where it goes.

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.”

It isn’t Normal, It’s Psychotic

Geopolitics is worth convern, especially with a woke military. More big corp blaming to evade reality. The Collins crock and big state coup. A how-to for fact checking fact checkers. Paranoia taking over the psyche.

More Geopolitics: Pay Attention To Manchin. Mark Wauck — “Manchin, in addition to the expected references to inflation and “staggering debt”, repeatedly referred to “geopolitical uncertainty” in the world.” …  “Don’t expect to find any sensible discussion of these geopolitical issues in the MSM.” … “What world leader wants to go out on a limb along with a feckless country like we’ve become? – Another concern was noted by none other than Dmitry Medvedev, former president of the Russian Federation.”

Liking a Facebook Post Could Get Service Members Punished Under Pentagon ‘Extremism’ Policy. Spencer Brown — “Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby announced a new “extremism” policy being rolled out by the Pentagon under President Biden and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Monday that the Department of Defense says provides “increased clarity” on what amounts to “extremist activities” or “prohibited activity” by service members.”

Big Grocery? Seriously? John Hinderaker — “This is almost beyond belief. The grocery store business is notoriously competitive and relatively unprofitable.” … “The broader point is that, according to the Democrats, we have suddenly been beset by a plethora of capitalist conspiracies, worthy of Chavez/Maduro Venezuela:”

The Single Most Important Thing We Can Do To Save the Constitution. Huck Davenport — “Even today, the most elementary constitutional lesson is probably still taught: the legislative branch makes the laws, the executive branch enforces the laws, and the judicial branch adjudicates the laws—but today that’s a lie.” … To paraphrase the great Ronald Reagan, “if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the form of an administrative state.”

The Collins Crock: WSJ Edition. Scott Johnson — “the excellent reported editorial “How Fauci and Collins Shut Down Covid Debate.” This is the heart of it (links omitted):” … “Groupthink is what we got and groupthink is what we have. Heather Mac Donald also demonstrates how it is done in the Spectator essay republished by the New York Post as the column “Omicron coverage reveals how the establishment, media keep us scared.”

Are athletes more are at risk from COVID or vax side-effects? James Stansbury — “The absence of mainstream news about the alleged spike in athlete deaths inspired some personal research.” … “Lorphic News presented information that directly contradicted both PolitiFact’s and Science 2.0’s negative claims.” … “The sample is long enough (20-year history) and large enough (265,000 players and coaches) to indicate something out of the ordinary and widespread.  And the timing of these sudden cardiac deaths (SCDs) correlates with the increased rates of athlete COVID vaccinations.”

Perhaps the best way to summarize the current state of the secular West’s politicization of medicine was written 21 centuries ago by St. Paul in Romans 1: 22: “Professing to be wise, they became fools.”

COVID paranoia highlights the terrible damage leftism does to women. Andrea Widburg — “One of the least pleasant discoveries of the COVID era is how many politicians who once seemed perfectly happy working within democratic systems …  turned out to have inner totalitarians that leaped at the chance to exercise power.  Another unpleasant discovery has been the many people — invariably on the political left — who have abandoned all semblance of normalcy in their efforts to avoid a virus that, for people under 65, has an average mortality rate of less than 1%.  One funny, sad tweet embodies this retreat from normalcy.”

My suspicion about Dana (Not Scully) is that she started out life as an intelligent, high-strung, slightly neurotic, but sane and normal young woman.  Then she went to college, where she was indoctrinated in the hardcore leftism that seems to take a special toll on young White women.  Some of these women manage to shake off the indoctrination once they leave college.  Others never do.  They go through life angry, emotionally fragile, paranoid, and incredibly self-satisfied, so armored in their narcissism that it is impossible to break through to them.

In other words, COVID didn’t make Dana crazy; leftism did — but COVID’s sure doing a good job of showing just how damaging leftism is for women.  It’s all terribly sad.

The Corporate Media Freakout Over The Omicron Variant Isn’t Normal, It’s Psychotic. John Daniel Davidson — “a disturbingly large number of reporters and commentators in the corporate press, whose coverage and individual responses to Covid have become increasingly divorced from that of the rest of America.” … “Imagine being so impervious to reality — to say nothing of science and data, or even just stories about Covid in the news — that you’d still think, in December 2021, that the Covid vaccines could prevent all your loved ones from getting infected.”

Follow the money

The stacking of the military leadership 2012-2016 produces results but the DEI crowd, at least the ‘brown’ part, isn’t buying it. Then the Form 990’s behind the 2020 election are being examined and gold is being foud.

Three Retired Generals Loudly Demand A Military Coup In 2024. Wolf Howling — “he Three utter a sentence I never expected to come out of the mouths of our military leadership: “[T]he military cannot wait for elected officials to act….” That’s a stunning statement from anyone who understands our military history and our Constitution. The single most basic rule of our military is that it is wholly and completely under civilian control. So, what would the Three have the military do unilaterally?”

Why Would Hispanics Drop the Left? Victor Davis Hanson — “The bill for the arrogance and incompetence displayed by leftist elites is now coming due.” … “Obviously, the last 11 months of Democratic rule have been seen as disastrous by all voters, Hispanics included. None of the Biden initiatives on crime, inflation, energy, the border, foreign policy, or race relations are either working or popular. The public, regardless of race, likely feels that most of these crises are not, as alleged by the Left, attributable to the long-gone Donald Trump or COVID-19, but to Joe Biden and the hard Left who seem to have control over him.”

New Tax Returns Further Reveal How Zuckbucks Swayed 2020 Election. Joseph Arlinghaus — “the Chicago-based Center for Tech and Civic Life finally filed its 2020 federal tax return and the list of grant recipients is shocking.”

Conspiracy theories are maybe something solid

The Nevada Independent has been removed from the reading list – it isn’t so ‘independent’ and two other media outlets also bit the dust due to short sighted greed policies  – The archbishop lays it bare on the table – VDH for history ed? – Left and crime – The state of the FBI – The population bomb versus human ingenuity – energy fantasies – 

Archbishop Vigano’s startling warning to the American people. Thomas Lifson — “The Archbishop has issued a Christmas letter to the United States that is unusually blunt about what he sees as a conspiracy underlying the handling of COVID.”

a few stand with Christ. Many don’t. COVID and the Catholic Church. Michael C. Hurley — “This young priest made the grave error, as have nearly all of the clergy and Church hierarchy since the beginning of the pandemic, of first assuming that the spiritual mission and heavenly government of the Church must be accommodated to the shifting politics and priorities of the civil government.”

The Dangerous ‘Save Democracy’ Movement, David Catron – “Our election system isn’t in peril, but the Democrats need a pretext to change the rules.” This one at the Spectatorand a Waukusha deviant parade report in a local paper have been censored to the unwashed. They are both warnings. 

Roses are Red, Crime is Blue. Brian C. Joondeph — “Vote for Democrats, and you’ll find this true” … “It’s interesting that the media and law enforcement have trouble finding motives or explanations when those might be politically incorrect.” … “hile ABC News is befuddled as to what these 12 cities have in common, Fox News, practicing journalism by asking basic questions of who, what, where, and why, easily found the common denominator. All 12 cities are led by Democrat mayors.”

Victor Davis Hanson and our miseducated youth. Jared Peterson — “So here we are. Two largely ignorant generations of Americans and Europeans are factually and intellectually unequipped to confront the ludicrous falsehoods and calumnies that are presented to them as revealed woke truth; and are entirely ignorant of how the West’s creative genius has been largely responsible for the dramatic elevation of mankind’s condition’s of life during the last 150 years.”

How Did the FBI End Up in This Mess? John Green and Quentin Smith — “It has been involved in everything from the creation of an “insurance policy” against the peaceful transition of power, to the targeting of parents as domestic terrorists for the sin of disagreeing with school boards.  How did our “premier law enforcement agency” stray so far from its motto of fidelity, bravery, and integrity?”

It wasn’t just uncharged Ray Epps leading the Capitol breach. He had helpers. Andrea Widburg — “The House’s Soviet-style January 6 committee continues its unsuccessful efforts to tie Donald Trump, people in his administration, Republican congresspeople, and Fox News personalities to the events on that day. What they’re ignoring as they try to destroy their political enemies is those people caught on tape actively encouraging the crowd to breach the Capitol.” … “This wouldn’t be the first time the FBI has done this.”

How The Green Revolution Saved The World $83 Trillion. Cameron English — “Dr. Norman Borlaug: He Saved A Billion Lives” … “Despite a massive increase in population growth and a shrinking amount of arable farmland, food production absolutely exploded beginning in the middle of the 20th century. We owe that progress to major improvements in agriculture, especially innovations in crop breeding”

Wind vs wind: There can be no honest winner. Peter Smith — “If wind farms compete they will go out of business. It’s as simple as that, meaning the market must be rigged. One way would be to ensure that a single supplier monopolises output in a defined market. Another would see suppliers collude. A third, the most likely, would see government set a floor price or continue providing subsidies to rent-seeking carpetbaggers.”

When you rely on nature for energy, most costs are upfront. When the wind is blowing, the marginal cost of providing a bit more power is close to zero. If wind farms are competing, they will bid the price down in line with marginal cost. And we have the classic perverse case of marginal cost falling below average cost. To those of mathematical bent, that means losses. … 

Conservationists versus sleazy rent-seeking carpetbaggers is the future of wind. Internecine struggles to look forward to brighten the gloom of leaders forlornly falling over themselves to ward off Greta Thunberg’s wrath. They should realise that chimeric promises of net zero, clean hydrogen revolutions and wall-to-wall electric cars, blah, blah, blah, won’t do the trick. She who won’t be mollified, won’t be mollified.

Which Country Or U.S. State Will Be The First To Hit The Renewable Energy Wall? Francis Menton — “In the fantasy of wealthy woke environmentalists, the world has recognized that it is on the brink of an existential climate crisis … In the real world, anyone with eyes can see that this is not happening.”

Anthony Fauci, Political Thug. John Hinderaker — “ecently disclosed emails show how political hack Anthony Fauci was enlisted to bully scientific voices on the coronavirus into silence” … “With hindsight, the tens of thousands of medical professionals who signed the Great Barrington Declaration were plainly right, and Fauci and Collins were wrong.”

British Medical Journal on Facebook “fact check” ‘… inaccurate, incompetent and irresponsible’. Anthony Watts — “It it worth repeating and sharing everywhere. It is time to pushback twice as hard. h/t to Willis Eschenbach.”

Omicron Today. Robert W Malone — “five articles that stand out as being among the most important regarding Omicron this week.”

Abp. Viganò’s Christmas 2021 Message. Mark Wauck — “The message is addressed to the American people—and understandably so, since the resistance of Americans to the Covid Regime and the Great Reset is key for the entire world”

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.”

There are jewels in the mud – maybe.

The style of two presidents to compare and contrast, The assault on truth in the TDS efforts, A conspiracy laid bare in the 1/6 melee, Rittenhouse versus ignorance and bigotry in the medical profession.

‘I wish it were a mistake’: Angel mom presents a ‘tale of two presidents’ and brings receipts. Terresa Monroe-Hamilton — “she wrote letters to both former President Trump and to President Biden begging for help with the illicit fentanyl crisis and the difference in reactions from the two leaders is telling.”

The ‘Trump Did Nothing for 187 Minutes on January 6’ Narrative Just Got Shredded. Matt Vespa — “It’s déjà vu all over again. There’s the big bombshell that turns out to be total nonsense—a nothing burger. But even this story comes without the bun.”

Meet Ray Epps, Part 2: Damning New Details Emerge Exposing Massive Web Of Unindicted Operators At The Heart Of January 6. Revolver — “In this report, we will blow open this network of still-unindicted key operators who appear to have been at work either with or around Ray Epps during the initial Capitol grounds breach.” Conspiracy theories? But what about the pictures, the videos, the other evidence put on the table in this lengthy report?

The Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal: a contrasting physician opinion. “I try to present truthful facts about the case. And this is why I will be anonymous. I do not want to be canceled or harassed for espousing an unpopular, politically incorrect position. But the actual facts of the case need to be told.” … ” think this opens up the broader and more important question for all of us physicians: Can we be objective, can we be compassionate toward those who think differently than us, toward those who hold different political beliefs than us,  toward those who vote for a candidate we might despise?”

What’s real? Oaths, mendacious operations, holes in the heart,

America’s Real Authoritarians. I & I Editorial Board — “How have we arrived at a place in our history in which the party that wants to limit government, embrace free markets, deregulate, and let people keep more of their hard-earned money is authoritarian, and the party that wants to force conformity, censor speech, eliminate all political challenges by establishing a single-party state that it controls, and make us all wards of the state is not?”

The answer is clear: The Big Lie has enabled the left’s ability to project its worst traits on the right.

Which is all the more interesting because the left side of the political aisle, in another ugly example of its projection, actually believes it is anti-fascist, and accuses anyone who even mildly questions the results of the 2020 presidential election as a super-spreader of the Big Lie. No group is more in need of self-examination, and maybe some professional help, than America’s angry left.

Does a Law Enforcement Oath Mean Anything Anymore? John Green — “Certainly, following lawful orders is important, but notice that there is nothing mentioned about obedience to leadership.  That’s because following orders is between the officers and their leaders.  Upholding their oath is between them and us, the American people.  We expect them to make judgements about right and wrong, and the oath is their assurance that they will do so conscientiously.” This is where the Vice President failed on January 6, despite asserting he ‘did the right thing.’ 

Far too many law-enforcement officers, FBI agents included, have demonstrated that they are no longer agents of the Constitution.  At best, they’re just employees doing as told.  Their oath has become an irrelevant formality.

Mark Meadows Lawsuit: Subpoenas Invalid Because Pelosi Constituted Select Committee In Violation of House Authorizing Resolution. William A. Jacobson — “Speaker Pelosi failed to appoint members consistent with the authorizing resolution of the Select Committee… Thus, the Select Committee as it currently stands—and stood at the time it issued the subpoenas in question—has no authority to conduct business because it is not a duly constituted Select Committee. Chairman Thompson’s subpoenas are invalid and unenforceable.”

Liz Cheney’s Jan. 6 committee: What kind of mendacious operation is this? Monica Showalter — “The committee is proving itself amazingly dishonest in its ambitions to Get Trump. Now it’s becoming a pattern.” … “What we see here is dishonesty after dishonesty coming from this committee”

The Hole in the Heart of RFK Jr.’s Extraordinary Book. Jack Cashill — “It was put there by pro-abortion Democrats, including his own family.” … “his brutal smackdown of the Dr. Anthony Fauci–Bill Gates vaccine oligarchy, The Real Anthony Fauci, is arguably the century’s most important book, and a page-turner on top of that. Buy it. Read it. If you choose not to, avoid holiday arguments with anyone who has. You will lose.”

The O’Keefe Project: The Times Strikes Again. Scott Johnson — “The FBI conducted these raids in the style to which we became accustomed in the case of Roger Stone and appears to have followed them up with leaks to its friends at the New York Times.”

Right Responds To Cancel Culture By Building Its Own Infrastructure, And The Left Goes Nuts. Margot Cleveland — “We can’t have people free to bank, communicate, work, report and read news, and more without the threat of losing their livelihoods. How will leftists control everyone then?”

What You Must Believe as an American in 2021. J.B. Shurk — “As far as I can tell, this is what we are now supposed to believe as Americans, in this first year of the Glorious Deep State’s Blessed and Eternal Reign: ”

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.”

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.”
