Rule? Precedent? Integrity? 1/6 and catch 22

“when you marginalize people, as leftists like Youngus (who argues that leftists have a greater grasp of “cognitive complexity” and therefore a better sense of humor) are doing, there will be pushback, and that pushback is never pretty.  Schmidt is polite and thoughtful; others will not be.” —  Andrea Widburg, An 18-year-old explains why young White men are becoming radicalized

“No speaker had ever before rejected the minority party’s nominees to a select House committee.” … “Its subtext was right out of the Soviet minister of Internal Affairs Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria’s credo: “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” … “A truly bipartisan House select committee dedicated to ending all violence directed at the White House, the Capitol, or federal courthouses might have been useful in probing this dark period in American history. – And that is precisely why there was no such committee.” — What the January 6 committee might have been – Victor Davis Hanson

“evidence now proves that “plainclothes” members of a special Electronic Surveillance Unit (ESU) were embedded among the protesters for the purposes of conducting video surveillance.” —  Patricia Tolson, Police Report Proves Plainclothes Electronic Surveillance Unit Members Were Embedded Among Jan. 6 Protesters | ZeroHedge

“Attorney General James … if he [Trump] admits to following the rules of accounting set forth by the profession’s authority, the AICPA.  In short, she has accused him of following the rules of accounting, which she claims is a violation of the law.  Her real purpose of this case could be summed up by one of Webster’s synonyms for Catch-22: gotcha.” —  David Ennocenti, New York’s attorney general has President Trump in a Catch-22

the Asch Conformity Experiment

Ambulance chasers; the real insurrectionists; lemmings psychology; some are beginning that it’s a fight and will need effort to stop it.

The Lawyers’ War on Law | Misrule of Law. Mark Pulliam — what’s old is still relevant – learn from history?

Deborah Birx makes astonishing deep state admission of anti-Trump pact – Washington Times. Cheryl K. Chumley — “It’s essentially an acknowledgement that medical bureaucrats, unelected and unaccountable to the people as they were and are, serving at the pleasure of the White House executive as they did, tried to strong-arm the president of the United States into obeying and abiding their dictates to the point of secretly arranging to walk if they didn’t get their way — if Trump decided to send one packing.”

This Scary Experiment Explains Two Years of COVID Hell – American Thinker. Vic Hughes — “it’s because of the Asch Conformity Experiment … showed that people will actually believe things that they know to be false if they think everybody else believes those things”

Studies prove that most politicians, experts handled COVID terribly. Joel Zinberg — “The data highlight the failure of policies promoted by experts, in and outside of government, to effectively address COVID. Many of the policies lacked an evidentiary basis. Some ineffective, harmful policies were prolonged for political reasons”

McConnell’s ‘Exhilarating’ Insurrection › American Greatness. Julie Kelly — “A dirty little secret about January 6—one of many—is that Democrats and establishment Republicans, not Trump supporters, wanted to shut down the official proceedings of that day”

Nazi Comparisons – PJ Media. Michael Barclay — “I have always enjoined all people to be extremely careful about ever making any comparison of modern times with the true evil of Hitler, Goebbels, and Nazi Germany. But even the kind-hearted and compassionate person who always wants to see the best in people (a category in which I include myself) must now recognize these parallels and choose to become active in preventing the Nazis of today, known as “progressive Democrats,” from their quest for total power.”

Ignorance And Apathy. Cal Thomas — “Controlling language shapes public perception and eventually opinion”

How to Turn a Whole State’s Power Production to Wind and Solar Dreams – American Thinker. Joe Herring — “Races for public power boards aren’t known as high-spending affairs, so the influx of substantial amounts to one candidate over another can easily swing a race” … “The amounts involved are indeed startling, especially when considering the relatively low profile of the races the money funded” … “No longer does providing reliable and affordable energy form the mainstay of our public power mission.  Thanks to hundreds of thousands of special interest dollars so far, and more to come, our names may still be on the deed to our public power systems, but the control now belongs to an environmentalist elite who are using our utilities to pursue their own agenda.  They make the decisions now; we just get to pay for them”

Those NGO’s and their GO partners

The Nihilism Of The Left. Victor Davis Hanson via AmGreatness.com, – “In pursuit of its utopian omelet, the Left cares little about the millions of middle-class Americans it must break to make it… The last 14 months have offered one of the rare occasions in recent American history when the hard Left has operated all the levers of federal government”

Egregious bill criminalizes clerks checking election accuracy. Joy Overbeck
– “Senate Bill 153 changes Colorado statutes to rob clerks of their lawful elected duty to assure their county elections are fair and honest, and hands the keys of the election kingdom entirely to the secretary of state” – “Some of the provisions of this jaw-dropping bill drastically change existing Colorado law, some are also very likely unconstitutional, and some are both. Examples: … ”

How
to Beat the ‘Intransigent Minority’
. Christopher Chantrill – “there is another problem, a big problem, that the new Congress needs to tackle. And that is the cozy relationship between activist groups and the administrative state, including both the bureaucracy and the judiciary. Nothing is going to change unless their condominium is broken up.” – “Will the intransigent activists continue to be supported by the deep state in media, the bureaucracy, and the judiciary? Or will a new generation of politicians marginalize and isolate the intransigent activists and remind the bureaucrats who pays their pensions?”

District Of Columbia Lacks Standing To Sue Oath Keepers And Proud Boys For Jan. 6, Defense Attorney Says. Joseph Hanneman via The Epoch Times – “The suit seeks to lay the blame for Jan. 6 violence at the U.S. Capitol on an alleged conspiracy between the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys and aims to hold the defendants financially responsible for the unrest” … “The DC Office of Attorney General is receiving pro-bono legal help from the States United Democracy Center; the Anti-Defamation League; Paul, Weiss, Rifkind,Wharton & Garrison LLP; and Dechert LLP”

Revealed: New Doc Shows How an Obama-Tied Dark Money Group Used Zuckerberg’s Cash to Swing Election. Citizens United – “He should totally be held accountable, and he should never be allowed to do it again,” Trump tells Bossie in the documentary. “It was a rigged election. People have to find out what happened, and they have to hold people accountable.”

The CDC Massively Violates Its ‘Pledge’ To Americans – Why Should Anyone Trust It Now? I & I Editorial Board – “Three recent events should make it abundantly clear that the answer is no.” – “It is long past time for a day of reckoning at the CDC. The public has suffered long enough at the hands of this out-of-control, unaccountable, power-hungry federal bureaucracy.”

The Black Lives Matter Scam. John Hinderaker – “$90 million could last for quite a while. And that figure likely understates the amount that panicked corporations poured into BLM’s coffers as protection money in 2020. This is a sordid story that seems to be drawing to a close. It is unlikely that any outsider will ever find out where most of the money went. It is equally unlikely that any federal or state law enforcement entity will go after BLMGNF for fraud, as would happen with a non-politically favored nonprofit.”

Why don’t the media ever ask why previous IPCC predictions have been so wrong? Jack Hellner – “Once again, the U.N. intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is warning that we are doomed” – “Here are four simple questions that the media won’t ask because they don’t care about the answer when they are pushing the radical leftist agenda to destroy America”

A lack of accountability

VDH sees sheer madness – the judicial oligarchy is on parade – the FDA, CDC, FBI, and the SEC are blowing smoke – 2020 vote fraud evidence continues to surface but the witch hunt is unabated – race baiting, sex grooming, lawyers to be violent in opposing open civil debate – it goes on and on

The Sheer Madness of Today’s Left. Victor Davis Hanson — “When ideologues demand power but cannot achieve it politically because they are cruel ideologues, expect more of their insanity to follow.” – “Yet madness is predictable when the unchecked left-wing’s demand for limitless and endless power collides with a hated, but unremorseful ideological agenda utterly divorced from reality.”

The problem with federal judges. Patrick Gibbs — “The nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court has only partly brought a spotlight on the abuse of our legal system and the Constitution by federal judges.” – “The case that best illustrates her arrogance of power was her decision (later reversed) in Make the Road New York v. Wolf, when she was a U.S. district judge in the District of Columbia.” – “When judges can use godlike powers to redefine the nature of humanity, they are well on their way to becoming masters of us all.”

FDA, CDC Guilty of Clinical Malpractice and Scientific Fraud by Inaction and Omission on mRNA Vaccine Safety Warnings. David Gortler — “federal agencies and manufacturers aren’t officially warning the American public about these risks, despite having been privy to this information for almost a whole year. Why? Because it would counter the narrative that taking endless vaccines and boosters is your patriotic duty.”

The Securities and Exchange Commission is growing like Godzilla. Andrea Widburg — “the SEC’s commissioners floated the idea of giving themselves a new power, one that Congress never contemplated: forcing America’s publicly traded companies to change their business practices to fight climate change.”

More Evidence of 2020 Voter Fraud. John Hinderaker — “John Lott has published a paper in which he applies three tests for voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.” – “The analysis is complicated, but Lott finds an excess 255,000 Biden votes in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.” – “It should have been obvious, but apparently came as a surprise to many, that there is no effective after-the-fact remedy for voter fraud.” – “We will find out in November whether voter fraud has been curbed, at least to some degree.”

The January 6 Witch Hunt Kills a Good Man. Rajan Laad — “If you enquire with anyone — even those who follow right-leaning media such as Fox News — about Matthew Perna, the response will likely be ignorance.” — “The best tribute to Matt is to ensure that no other citizens engaging in their democratic rights to protest ever face such an unfortunate fate.”

Are We Sure The 2020 Election Was Clean? I & I Editorial Board — “Americans have been warned by their superiors to not question the outcome of the 2020 election, because it will further the Donald Trump Big Lie that the presidency was stolen from him. Yet we continue to see shreds of evidence that say the Big Lie is in fact the claim that the 2020 election wasn’t corrupted.” – “the left has behaved in the most hysterical ways possible, feigning fear and ever searching for a fainting couch to fall into, shocked that some Trump voters actually have had the gall to express misgivings. ”

How does the FBI ‘lose’ a laptop like Hunter Biden’s? Monica Showalter — “Some things don’t make sense. – All of these anomalies point to why the Hunter Biden laptop actually is important to U.S. cyber security and does affect the job of protecting the U.S. from foreign cyberattacks. – Yet Vorndran is amazingly incurious.”

Chaos In the White House [Updated]. John Hinderaker — “Upon arriving back in Washington, a chastened Biden answers “No” when asked whether he was “calling for regime change.”

Banning Critical Race Theory. John Hinderaker — “The tricky thing, of course, is characterizing the teachings of CRT. The point is not to ban teaching about CRT, but rather to ban the pernicious doctrines that flow from CRT. Mississippi’s approach is simple and is based on the inherent racism of Critical Race Theory”

Why demands for Justice Thomas to recuse himself on Jan. 6 cases don’t meet the laugh test. Thomas Lifson (hypocrisy)

No, Justice Thomas Did Not Commit an Impeachable Offense. Jonathan Turley (law)

Judge Asserts Donald Trump ‘More Likely Than Not’ Committed Felony Obstruction. Bonchie — “Everything that’s old is new again, and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump” – “With all due respect to this Clinton-appointed judge, that’s one of the most insane interpretations of the law I’ve ever read.”

Another win for Trump, but it’s nothing to really celebrate. Rajan Laad — “Since the day Donald Trump won the Presidency in 2016, even before he was inaugurated, Democrats in Washington and in the media began their attempts to unseat him.” — “It is always most dangerous when the scornful have power. The Democrats have shown the country what they are capable of by abusing the power of the government to destroy their political opposition.” — “The fact that it took so long is a travesty because the process itself was the equivalent of punishment.”

Donald Trump Is Trending Huge On Twitter, Here’s Why. Hailey Sanibel — “For this episode of Trump Is Guilty Of Something Big, the charge is that there is proof of deleted phone calls on the day of January 6th”

On the YLS debacle. Scott Johnson — “the university is among those venues set apart for vibrant exchange of ideas. It is not the only venue. The courtroom is another. Though the manner in which such exchanges occur on campus and in court differs, both provide an orderly and controlled environment with the aim of ensuring a fair hearing of contending arguments. Actions intended to prevent such hearings injure the whole rationale of the academy and, indeed, the law.”

KBJ Hearings Typify Our Debased Political Discourse. David Catron –” Serious policy debates aren’t possible if basic terms no longer have commonly accepted meanings.” — “If politicians, judges, and other public officials camouflage their true positions and agendas with evasive and euphemistic language because they don’t believe the voters and their congressional representatives will support them, our political discourse becomes so debased that it is impossible to understand — much less trust.”

Disney executive who is the mother of a transgender and a pansexual child says she wants at least half of ALL future characters to be LGBTQIA or racial minorities: Theme parks are now banned from saying ‘hello boys and girls’.  Janon Fisher.

Race-baiting, sexuality dogma, and climate voodoo at the American Psychiatric Association. Deborah C. Tyler — “The article reports Dr. Levounis’s priorities and that “he plans to do the following:  Amplify the psychiatrist’s voice on critical social issues, such as systemic racism, homophobia, and climate change.” – Let’s deconstruct this trinity of social issues, which are of paramount concern to the incoming leader of American psychiatrists.” – “In this time of a tidal wave of mental illness in America, it is a disaster that psychiatry is turning away from the rigors and sacrifices of scientific medicine to fall into the quicksand of anti-scientific, self-serving progressive dogma.”

Instapundit: — “Justin Trudeau has become a punchline on the world stage — for good reason: This is a sad moment — for Canada and its standing within the free world.”

The Progressive’s Ukraine-Envy. Patrick M. Garry — “The envy is directed toward Ukraine, a country being pummeled by Russian tanks and missiles. A country where children, the elderly and the sick are being targeted with bombs.- And yet, it is also a country bravely standing up to one of the largest and best-equipped militaries on earth.  This courage, this love of home and country, this willingness to sacrifice life and fortune – this is the subject of American envy.”

The Democrats’ New ‘Latino’ Problem: The Ghost of James Monroe. Robert Oscar Lopez — “some disturbing maps have circulated showing the globe in terms of which nations have sanctioned Russia over her invasion of Ukraine” — “Most depressing is the fact that a lot of the world just doesn’t believe us” — “It is hard to interpret events as anything other than a massive blow to American credibility abroad.” — “now would be a good time for all those Critical Race theorists in New York and California to update their antiquated assumptions.”

Sure, bring back the 1950s. Don Surber — “Today’s fiction writing seems limited to news stories in NYT and WaPo. And their stories are lame with holes in their plots even a Russian tank commander could drive a convoy through.”

Thirsting for seriousness in the long-form podcast. Meriam Matthews — “It is now common to see lengthy presentations covering deep subjects on YouTube and on various podcasts.  It is also now common that millions, not thousands, of people are watching.” – “There is a thirst in the land, a hunger for seriousness that is lacking in short-form TV ”

Thomas Sowell, Monument to Intelligent Insight. John Dale Dunn — review of Maverick: A Biography of Thomas Sowell by Jason L Riley 304 pp, 18.69  Hardcover 16.69 Kindle, ISBN-10 ? : ? 1541619684  (Basic Books 2021) — “Thomas Sowell is an American literary and philosophical icon — a prolific genius who has graced us with his presence and his extraordinary essays, books and lectures for more than 50 years.”

Where’s the threat? The culprit in the mirror.

Don’t confuse hate with disgust and disappointment – The Left chooses targets like Putin is doing – Texas is trying to protect children – VDH has two history lessons.

The Ruling Class Is A Far Greater Threat To Americans Than Russia Is. Christopher Bedford — “the truth is that a lot of us hate our elites far more than we hate some foreign dictator.” – “So what’s the cause of this apparent treason? Why aren’t we charging? Why aren’t we all impressed with a government that’s afraid of racially profiling Chinese spies, or the carbon footprint of war in Europe? Why didn’t the Russians fear the diversity tweets of our NATO alliance, or our maternity flight suits and trans soldiers?” – “The only answer so many come to is, predictably, “Trump,” but the real culprits are in the mirror.”

Leftists viciously malign Clarence Thomas. Mario Diaz — “Justice Clarence Thomas has done well for himself.  He is in no need of defense by anybody.  His life and work are inspiring by any measure.  But the despicable, racially motivated, coordinated media attacks against him and his family are so unfair that even a slight appreciation of justice would compel a reasonable person to speak.”

Texas moves to prosecute trans medical procedures on children as child abuse Jazz Shaw — “Of course, when the Boston Globe covered this story, they chose to describe such procedures as “gender-affirming care.” This move by Abbott should properly be viewed as common sense, but sadly, such sensibilities are far from common these days and the medical community has continued an alarming slide toward woke political theory instead of actual science.”

The Plague You Should Be Freaking Out About Is Government Abuse Of Power, Carina Benton — “Two years on, the crackdown on legitimate civil protests showcases what western governments will do to suppress critics of their Covid police state.”

Why is the Left Suddenly Worried About the End of Democracy? Victor Davis Hanson — “They are not worried about 2 million foreign nationals crashing the border in a single year, without vaccinations during a pandemic … that some 800,000 foreign nationals, some residing illegally, will now vote in New York City elections … that there are formal efforts underway to dismantle the U.S. Constitution by junking the 233-year-old Electoral College or the preeminence of the states in establishing ballot laws in national elections … that we are witnessing an unprecedented left-wing effort to scrap the 180-year-old filibuster, the 150-year-old nine-person Supreme Court, and the 60-year tradition of 50 states, for naked political advantage … that the Senate this year put on trial an impeached ex-president and private citizen, without the chief justice in attendance, without a special prosecutor or witnesses, and without a formal commission report of presidential high crimes and misdemeanors … that the FBI, Justice Department, CIA, Hillary Clinton, and members of the Obama Administration systematically sought to use U.S. government agencies to sabotage a presidential campaign, transition, and presidency … that the Pentagon suddenly has lost the majority support of the American people … that in 2020, a record 64 percent of the electorate did not cast their ballots on Election Day … that the usual rejection rate in most states of non-Election Day ballots plunged  … that partisan billionaires of Silicon Valley poured well over $400 million into selected precincts in swing states to “help” public agencies conduct the election”

Putin’s Predictabilities. Victor Davis Hanson — “It is easy to predict what the Russian president will do in any given situation. Biden is making it easier for Putin to act with aggression.”

Panic Driven Seeking a Monopoly on Violence

Dumped a Churrchill and installed a Chamberlain and now try to deny the results. Again – Guns control is a proxy for people control – The police are losing credibility as well – The heroes of envy a decade on avfter Obama’s claimed son.

Vindman and the rest of the Trump-hating Ukraine cabal have much to answer for. Monica Showalter — “the Russia invasion didn’t happen on Trump’s watch as they plotted and schemed against him instead of doing their jobs. – It happened after the man they worked so hard to get into the presidency cheated his way into power. – now the results speak for themselves – This obviously, has prompted all kinds of scrambling self-justifications from this Ukraine cabal that elected Ukraine-corrupted Joe.”

A partisan investigation into Trump seems to have dead-ended. Andrea Widburg — “At least one criminal case that Democrat activists filed against Trump may be ending with a whimper.”

A Tsunami of Cope Approaches After Criminal Case Against Donald Trump Implodes. Bonchie — “As to the prosecutors themselves, it is incredibly disturbing that they were so emotionally invested in taking down a political opponent (don’t kid yourself about their political leanings) that they chose to quit when their boss, himself left-leaning and anti-Trump, decided there wasn’t enough to go on.”

The Fall of Canada, The Danger in the US. Naomi Wolf — Understanding Martial Law — “Parliamentarians in Canada also do not seem to understand that “dictator” is no longer rhetorical. A member of Parliament was shushed when he cried out this epithet, but the fact is that this is not a slur at this point. Justin Trudeau is by definition now in fact a dictator.”

The Democrats Are Turning America into the New Venezuela. Karina Schmitt — “Our constitutional rights are disappearing at the combined hands of government and giant corporations.  Stripping the people of their right to protect themselves is a slippery slope toward the downfall of a free country.  It can rapidly turn a beautiful, resourceful, and free country into a living hell for its citizens.”

The State’s Monopoly on Violence. Max D. Dublin — “it’s not unlikely that these historians will view the lockdowns as a massive exercise of violence by so-called liberal democratic states on their people. – In the present political moment, violence is usually thought of as being physical.  But quite often, in fact increasingly more often than not, it is psychological or financial violence in the mode that sometimes is referred to as passive aggressive.”

Why Tech Totalitarianism Threatens To Turn America Into Canada Or China Unless We Stop It. Kara Frederisk — “Absent drastic measures to arrest the progress of this march toward totalitarianism with a tech face, we risk the welfare of a nation.”

Let’s Hope The Special Counsel (And Others) Are Investigating The People Who Watch You Online. Margot Cleveland — “A revelation buried in a cache of documents opens a new and potentially important investigative corridor for Special Counsel John Durham.”

A Decade of Deceit and Division: What Trayvon Wrought. Jack Cashill — “Although he certainly did not intend to, the drugged and despondent 17-year-old who wandered through a failing Florida subdivision on a rainy February night ten years ago Saturday launched a new phase in the American civil rights movement.”

How The Left’s Push For ‘Equity’ Is Destroying Equality. Joe Mobley — “The tremendous sacrifices, losses, and displays of courage driving the promise of a more perfect union — dignity, respect, and equality for all people — are sullied. Bigotry, racism, and flagrant sexism are now par for the course.”

The Treason of the Ruling Class. Steve McCann — “Because of the egocentrism and megalomania of the current ruling class, our country is inexorably and stealthily marching toward a tyrannical one-party socialist oligarchy beholden to a globalist agenda.”

Glenn Reynolds: “Instead of “defunding the police,” which is such a dumb idea even the Democrats are now pretending they never favored it, it’s more helpful to look at how the police are funded. Incentives matter.”

Cops, convoys, conservatives, and tyranny. Stu Tarlowe — “what bothers me even more than the propaganda offensive against those who dare to protest government COVID edicts — and the propagandists are currently attempting to sell the idea that the very word “freedom” is actually code (a “dog whistle”) for “white supremacy” — is the prospect that American cops will turn on the protesters as unhesitatingly as the Canadian cops did.” — “Tyranny is difficult to impose without heavy-handed enforcement.  What we’ve seen in Canada, and what I fear we’ll see even more of in the U.S., causes one to no longer wonder where a tyrannical regime manages to find its Gestapo, its Stasi, its jackbooted thugs.  They’re already in place, uniformed, armed, and well regimented.”

No Matter How Peaceful The American Freedom Convoy Is, Our Corrupt Regime Will Demonize It. Jordan Boyd — “Like the many people who only peacefully protested at the Capitol on Jan. 6, the truckers will be smeared as domestic terrorists by the Biden administration and media.”

The Air Force Went Woke, Its Planes Won’t Fly. Daniel Greenfield — “Diversity was supposed to improve military readiness. It didn’t.”

In the End, Sweden Did It Right. Stephen Moore — “What if two years ago, when COVID-19 first hit these shores, our politicians hadn’t panicked?” — “Sweden’s successful response strategy reminds us that we must never again shut down our businesses and schools. I just pray we have all learned that enduring lesson before another virus wave arrives.”

The Centers For Disease Control’s Lies Have Destroyed Its Legitimacy Gregg Schmedes — “By refusing to acknowledge the harms of lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccination, the Centers for Disease Control has brought everlasting shame to itself.”

A requiem for the deaf

It’s ability to engage with society that is at threat – Canada joins other commonwealth nations tossing off the British heritage – Those who need to pay attention aren’t listening – Education means conformity and convenient standards?

A Social Credit System Arrives in Canada. David Sacks — “Justin Trudeau just created a caste of economic untouchables. Can we stop this dystopian policy from taking hold in America?” – “anyone who cares about the future of America as a place where citizens are free to protest their government needs to understand what has just occurred and work to stop it from taking root here.”

Requiem for a Nation. David Solway — “It may seem hard to believe that America’s neighbor to the north is now a full-fledged, up-and-running police state.” – “there is little doubt that Canada, like Australia and New Zealand, has gone rogue.”

With media targeting truckers’ donors, say goodbye to anonymous free speech. David Harsanyi — “In Canada, first the doxing, then the struggle session.” – “The fact that we aren’t obliged to publicly attach our names to all political donations is endlessly frustrating to those intent on smearing and intimidating their political opponents.”

The Gathering Storm in the West. Victor Davis Hanson — “Few are listening any more to the clueless Justin Trudeaus and bumbling Joe Bidens and all the toxic hypocrisies they embody.” – “Canada is now governed by absurdism, and it is symptomatic of an ailing Western elite.” – “That wound of an imperious but counterfeit elite has suppurated too long beneath a smooth scab. And abruptly, the truckers at least tore some of it off.” – “More and more North Americans are perplexed why anyone would wish to follow such unimpressive mental and physical figures along with all the toxic hypocrisies they embody and weaponize.”

The police in Paris did something entirely unexpected. Andrea Widburg — “It’s been terribly disappointing, both inside and outside of America, to see police forces rally to enforce tyrannical, unprincipled, and often illegal or unconstitutional government responses to COVID.” – “one thing that none of us expected, and that’s to see police marching peacefully alongside Parisians who were protesting COVID restrictions and vaccine passports.”

CDC quietly lowers the bar for early childhood speech development. Jazz Shaw — “For the first time in decades, the CDC has changed many of the recognized milestones for childhood development in terms of speech and cognitive functions. These markers are considered important in terms of recognizing when children aren’t progressing quickly enough, suggesting the potential need to determine if some sort of impairment is being observed and if the child may require greater medical attention. The curious thing about the changes instituted by the CDC is that in a majority of the cases, they have lowered the standards rather than raising them.”

Everything that’s wrong with American education summed up in one image. Andrea Widburg — “The problem with teachers like the one who graded the work above is that they train children not to think, but instead, to follow rules and to color within the lines — and if the lines make no sense, the children must simply retreat to a position of safety that the teacher will support.” – “American children are in deep trouble at schools filled with young, leftist, mindless drones who view their students not as lovely, growing, infinitely adaptable beings to be encouraged and cultivated, but as factory widgets who must be forced, through all the coercion public schools have, to fit a single (usually leftist) mold.”

There’s a war in. Haven’t you noticed?

Crazy Years and the insanity all around us – Oversight in 1/6? phooey. – Infiltration methods – spies – arrogant responses showing some desparation, maybe – a summary of cherished myth funderals.

The Crazy Years. Richard Fernandez — “Maybe the progressives don’t know what else to do. It’s obvious to them that something momentous is happening, but there’s no explanation for it in any of the tomes in Revolution Bookstore.”

D.C. Jail Ignores House Judiciary Member’s Query About January 6 Inmates. Penny Starr — “Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) has yet to hear from the D.C. Department of Corrections, whose director he queried in July of 2021, about the status of the men and women who remain in the agency’s custody for charges related to the January 6 riot at the Capitol.”

Freedom Convoy Organizers Say They Notified Police After Being Told “Nefarious Elements” Plan To Discredit Protest. Katabella Roberts via The Epoch Times,– “Organizers of the Freedom Convoy in the Canadian capital say they have notified police after being told that “nefarious elements” are planning to plant weapons at the Ottawa COVID-19 mandate demonstrations as a “pretext to forcibly remove peaceful protestors.”

Democrats Framed And Spied On Trump While He Was President. Margot Cleveland — “The details John Durham sprinkled throughout his filings suggest even more bombshells are to come.”

What We Learned From Michael Sussmann’s Response To The Spygate Special Counsel. Margot Cleveland — “The media has finally begun covering the special counsel’s investigation and indictment against former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, and he is none too happy.”

2020: The Year Our Most Cherished Myths Went Belly Up. Mark Wauk — “I found James Bovard’s review of 2020 to be particularly trenchant” — “Nevertheless, there are signs of America awakening. … And yet–how much damage has already been done? Can we recover?”

The Mental Landscape – Academia is the common factor to question

Twenty points to consider about the hidden war – fetish in education – McConnel and Cheney contempt for their troops – maskng the question

No, the Revolution Isn’t Over. N.S. Lyons — “None of the fundamental drivers of “Wokeness” have relented” — “One would think that by now all these anti-woke conservatives and moderate liberals would have learned at least some of the bitter lessons from the last decade about how political power and cultural change actually work, but I guess not – They could have recognized by now that this is not a simple political issue with a political solution, but they have not.”

The Unbearable Bleakness of American Schooling. Robert Pondiscio — “How contemporary education fetishizes the bad and the broken in American life” — “The mental landscape of American childhood is very different today. By any reasonable measure, the world is safer and more stable than at any time in living memory. Adults could hardly be more active in children’s lives, but at the same time we seem less inclined to play a reassuring role.” — “The defiant relationship of American education to its host is not necessarily an explicitly political project” — “When education becomes activism, it dwells exclusively in the bad and the broken”

Mitch McConnell Shouldn’t Promote Media Lies About RNC Censure Of Cheney. Mollie Hemingway — “Republican voters would like their leaders to meet the simple test of not calling them terrorists for engaging in peaceful political protest. They would like their supposed leaders to meet the simple test of not accepting the media’s routine lies about them but, instead, to fight vigorously against those lies. That McConnell failed so dramatically in this regard does not bode well.”

Liz Cheney Reveals Her True Priorities and That’s Going to Sink Her. Nick Arama — “If you were siding with the Constitution, you would know to fight the Democrats at all costs because they are doing all they can to suborn the Constitution and move the country further left.”

Liz Cheney Called Electoral Objections Unconstitutional And Then Sided With Democrats Who’d Done It For Years. Tristan Justice — “In their final phone conversation before rivalries emerged, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney called political ally-turned-primary challenger Harriet Hageman to weigh the consequences of demanding that President Donald Trump concede the election.”

 

It’s Time To Ask: Did Any Of The COVID Mandates, Closures, Lockdowns Do Anything? I & I Editorial Board — “Was any of it worth it? Did any of the guidelines, mandates, orders, shutdowns, cancelations, lockdowns do anything to alter the course of the disease, or change in any way the number of people who died from it? – Let’s review:”

Were Masks A Waste Of Time? Geoff Shullenberger [UnHerd.com] — “Experts advocated an intervention they once thought useless…” – “The endorsement of masking by medical bodies and public health authorities worldwide, Miller shows, entailed the abandonment of a longstanding view that masks were a useless and even harmful intervention.” — “The most disastrous failing of the experts has been their lack of curiosity about the actual results of the policies they have staked their reputations on.”

What happened about self awareness and honesty?

Authoritarian instincts rationalized by security and populist resistance – Propaganda means a new dictionary and simple, pleasing sounding new mission statements – but what comes after? – What’s happening now (CPI)?

Are You America’s Top Terrorist Threat? John Hinderaker — “The DHS Bulletin is embedded below. In a variety of ways, the Democratic Party has tried to delegitimize opposition to its hegemony and, where possible, make it illegal. Let’s hope that the Department of Homeland Security has not been enlisted in this scheme.”

Our Authoritarian Moment. Jeffrey Folks — “Ben Shapiro warns of the rise of censorship, voter fraud, fake news, and other leftist tactics for seizing control.” — “Just to have a chance, we must constantly oppose authoritarianism through legal and peaceful means, through voting and political organization, and through writing and speaking out, and we must be a little less polite in our resistance.  If we fail, this really will be “the authoritarian moment” — or, more to the point, the establishment of a totalitarian communist state in America.”

Time to worry: the Biden government is redefining core principles. Andrea Widburg — “Two odd little reports appeared in the past couple of days, both of which involve the federal government redefining things that, before the Biden administration, had mostly agreed-upon definitions that were not hostile to ordinary Americans and that recognized American sovereignty.” — “Never before in American history have we had an American government that is a mob-style enforcement agency against citizens and one, moreover, that happily fulfills that role because it so patently hates the citizens over whom it has this power.”

Capitol Police Issue an Unbelievable Statement After Accusations of Spying on Congress. Nick Arama — “The Capitol Police didn’t deny it, they just tried to justify it in a statement as necessary for security reasons.” — “I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen police securing property taking pictures of documents and information and coming back two days later to then grill staffers dressed as construction workers.”

What To Do With the Left After Their Coming Spanking. Conrad Black — “The day is now not far off when wokeness, American self-hate, foreign appeasement, and the indulgence of criminal and corrupt organizations like Black Lives Matter will end.” — “So great is the rot and failure of the system that Trump attacked in 2016 that not everyone can be punished for their complicity in it.” — “The escalated use of the criminal justice system to resolve political differences took off with Watergate; it is about to reach its climax and the national interest requires that the temptations of comprehensive vengeance yield to the necessity for a more civilized political atmosphere.”

What Are They Hiding? “Democrats Argue Voting Machines Too Fragile to Inspect – If Investigators Touch Them They WIll Need to Be Replaced – Demand Rudy Giuliani Be Punished for Requesting Access to Dominion Machines” Jim Hoft

How Vaccine Discrimination Caused Dangerous Hospital Care Shortages In Wisconsin. Kylee Zempel — “The depths of Covid corruption at Gundersen can’t fit on one page, and that hospital is just the tip of the iceberg.”

Here Is The Heatmap From Today’s Blowout CPI Report. Tyler Durden — “Today’s CPI print was a stunner: despite JPM hearing “whispers” that inflation would miss expectations, not only did that not happen with CPI now coming in higher than Wall Street estimates 9 of the past 11 months, but CPI came in at the hottest level since 1982 when the Fed Funds rate was 11.50%.”

Government Thuggery

It comes on many fronts and is expressed in standard form to squash dissent and protest. – Making a list but not checking it twice - inakomyslyashchiye – comic book villains

School District Sends Letter Saying They’ll Label Unmasked Students a ‘Clear and Present Danger’ and Prosecute Parents for Truancy. Jennifer Van Laar — “Facing a wave of students peacefully protesting mask mandates by simply showing up to school unmasked, administrators all over the country are doubling down – leaving elementary school students outside with no coats on a cold day, unsupervised; attempting to barricade high school students in an unheated gymnasium; making them sit on the curb without desks, a teacher, or work; denying them access to the school; and labeling them a “clear and present danger to the life, safety, or health of a pupil or school personnel” in order to legally exclude them from campus.” … “Also, it’s disgusting that school officials would think it’s a good idea to make baseless political referrals to CPS when the system is unable to properly protect truly abused and at-risk children.”

I’d like to say we’ve reached peak insanity, but I don’t want to tempt fate.

Schweizer Hits Another Home Run on Biden-China Corruption. John Dale Dunn — “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win”

There’s Good News and Some Really Bad News on America’s Religious Freedom Front. Mark Tapscott — “officials are creating databases of the religious beliefs and practices of millions of American citizens.” — “more than three dozen Republicans in the House of Representatives are moving to stop this latest illustration of the inevitable grasping, expansive, abusive tendencies of government bureaucracies.”

The internet has become a tool for government oppression, neo — “And not just a tool for government oppression – a remarkably comprehensive and efficient tool. – potentially (and perhaps already actually) the greatest totalitarian tool ever invented.”

The censoring of Joe Rogan is a tactic right out of old Soviet Union. Rebekah Koffler — “the benevolent authoritarians want to “protect” you from the bad influence of the Rogan type “rogues.” — “It is not an accident that the “guardians of truth” in the White House, Hollywood, Big Tech and American press equivalents of Soviet Pravda and Izvestiya are coming after Rogan and Spotify with the zeal of Russia’s Vladimir Putin chasing down and poisoning his opponents.”

GoFundMe tells the Canadian Freedom Convoy and its donors to GoFundThemselves. neo — “Violence? I’ve read a lot about this demonstration, and it’s been remarkably peaceful, not just “mostly peaceful” like the Antifa riots.” — “Historical fascism actually went further than that in terms of explicit government control of private industry. But the underpinnings – that private companies do the government’s bidding while preserving the appearance of autonomy – are now present in Canada.”

GoFundMe shuts down the Canadian truckers’ fund. Andrea Widburg — “if the truckers hadn’t been naïve, they would have avoided GoFundMe from the beginning.  It was inevitable that GoFundMe would cut them off.  It was also inevitable that it would do so at the behest of a leftist politician who lied about the truckers being violent.  Also, that GoFundMe would say, as if it had never funded CHAZ or BLM, that it couldn’t possibly countenance handling money that might go to violent people”

Ottawa Police Department Announce They Are a Political Activist Institution and Agency of Government. Sundance — “the originator of the left-wing effort to target the Freedom Convoy has been identified.”

Canadian Trucker Protest Enters Second Week. John Hinderaker — “Canadian authorities are playing the role of comic book villains” — “GoFundMe quickly backtracked and agreed to automatically refund all donations. The truckers are now working with GiveSendGo. Meanwhile, can anyone explain why every single institution and platform, and almost all large companies, have been taken over by the authoritarian left?”

GoFundMe and the Nag’s Head Light: How Crowdfunding Has Become The Latest Battleground Over Free Speech. Jonathan Turley — “The easy-to-use technology and need for crowdfunding services quickly expanded the company into a multibillion enterprise. However, it soon became clear that the company was using its control of funds to advance its own political agenda. Worse yet, the company effectively coaxing groups into fundraising campaigns on its site, only to freeze accounts before the money could be used.”

Attorney Representing Freedom Convoy Shares a Message. Sundance — “The jackboots will focus on using acts of mischief, hate, harassment, intimidation and other threatening behaviors, whether real or created by Canadian intelligence operations, to target the protestors.”

Why Ivermectin was Disappeared. Henry F. Smith Jr — “Not only has this FDA-approved, Nobel prize-winning drug been made unavailable, if a physician were to prescribe it, or advocate it as therapy, they are threatened with the potential loss of their medical license, their hospital affiliations, and their board certification.”

Why the Sudden Hostility Toward Off-Label Medicines? Brian C. Joondeph — “why now, almost two years into the COVID pandemic, are we not throwing everything at this virus?” — “why such hostility toward off-label treatments, even when the physician follows well-established precedent, making a decision for their patient after weighing the risks and benefits? And why are physicians who follow this accepted approach for off-label medications threatened with loss of employment, license, and reputation?” — “Why is science being upended for COVID, from off-label therapeutics to natural immunity, well established concepts now suddenly considered junk science and dismissed? Is this what we can now expect from the finest healthcare system in the world, the Orwellian politicization of medicine?”

Watts Up With That: We’re on GETTR. Charles Rotter

it’s not the crazy Gods, it’s their believers.

Discovery Will Be Lit –  Favorite politician caveat – No justifiable reason – Freedom struggles – treachery. Vindeman and Pence et al

The Rise of Totalitarian Science, 2022 Edition. John G. West — “Because of the pandemic’s deeply personal costs, it can be painful to engage in a candid discussion of the changes COVID-19 policies have wrought on our society.” … “Now, after two years, facts are becoming clearer — and so are the momentous consequences of the pandemic for our culture. Those consequences are so serious that they can’t be ignored.”

So what can you do?

When you hear a friend or colleague demonizing others for being unvaccinated, call them out on their dehumanization of others.

When you hear people advocating suppression of “misinformation” in the name of science, advocate for free speech — and share some true scientific information that is being suppressed.

When local government officials push increasingly repressive measures, let them know you strongly oppose those measures and why.

When Will Freedom Arrive In The U.S.? I & I Editorial Board — “Yes, most U.S. states have freed their residents. Yet much of the country is still under the government boot.” … “Notice any commonality among these outposts where freedom no longer rings? They are all run by Democrats.”

What You Need To Know About Alex Vindman’s Lawsuit Against Trump Officials. Margot Cleveland — “While Ukraine hoaxer Alex Vindman may achieve an early victory in this case, he may soon deeply regret his decision to sue.” .. “Vindman might just give Trump the impeachment trial he needed, with the witnesses he needed, to establish Vindman worked with the whistleblower and the whistleblower with Schiff to launch the Ukraine hoax.”

The Treachery of VP Mike Pence Explained. Emerald Robinson — “Who fired General Flynn and started the Russia Hoax in the first place?” … ” it’s always been obvious that Pence and his staff were deeply involved in trying to remove President Trump from office.” … “It’s time you paid much closer attention to your favorite politicians though— if you want your country to survive.”

Biden’s Flights of Illegal Aliens into U.S. Cost Taxpayers $340M in 9 Months. John Binder — “The data, obtained by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) following an inquiry to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), shows the extent to which Biden’s massive illegal immigration inflow into the U.S. is costing American taxpayers.”

Protests From Out of Nowhere. Richard Fernandez — “what we are now witnessing in the disputes rocking the Australian Open, Spotify, Marvel and the trucking world are spontaneous meeting engagements in the culture wars. It’s like a chain reaction of angry people setting off other angry people. The singular thing about this development is that it would have been impossible six months ago. A psychological barrier has been breached and a taboo has fallen. The potential of this to create a cascade is considerable.”

Canadian Convoy Movement Goes Global — Next Stop, U.S.? I & I Editorial Board — “It’s a potent movement that has tapped into a deep vein of cultural anger and resentment over the Canadian government’s authoritarian response to the virus.” … “some are now saying, “enough,” and loudly. And they’re not the elites. They’re working people who have seen their livelihoods damaged or destroyed, lost their rights to travel and and speak out, and in general have been treated as subjects, not citizens.”

Communism’s Woke Gods Must Be Crazy. J.B. Shurk — “It’s no wonder that one of the first acts of all communist regimes is to round up and murder anybody not hysterically committed to the “cause.”  Communism, like its COVID-1984 kissing cousin, only thrives when mass formation psychosis takes over.” … “Our corporate news propagandists have become a veritable Ministry of Truth.”

Why Wokeism? Seth Grossman — “That narrative goes like this.: until about 600 years ago, most people in the world lived peaceful, comfortable, and environmentally sustainable lives. – Then, in the 1400s, a bunch of white men in Europe went crazy.  While abusing their women, they built ships and weapons to attack and exploit the rest of the world.  These crazy white men exterminated Native Americans, enslaved black Africans, and impoverished Asians.  They also started wars and polluted the planet to cause the catastrophic “climate crisis” we have today.” … “This thinking caused 14 years of world war and the deaths of some 85 million people — roughly 3% of the world’s population.  Sadly, this will happen again unless most Americans quickly understand and reject the lies and evil of this “woke” culture.”

Letter from a fired Hershey worker. Don Surber – “Hershey has a reputation as a good employer that is benevolent to the community. This was a cold cut that likely will result in a court battle. What happened?”

Censor This: Science Says Mask Mandates Don’t Work. James D. Agresti — “Some of the most powerful proponents of masking continue to spread destructive fictions and withhold genuine facts from people.” … “In reality, those “misinformation” policies and other pronouncements of tech giants, government officials, media outlets, and fact-checkers often flout basic principles of academic integrity, spread deadly falsehoods, and suppress facts that could help people.”

People Are Still Struggling Alone In Hospitals For No Justifiable Reason. Jordan Boyd — “Two years in, hospitals’ ongoing no-visitor policies leave the people they claim to treat emotionally, spiritually, and physically vulnerable.”

By their behavior you can know them

It’s a BFD. And another. And Another. Peaceful protest is grin and bear it time for the elites. Election fraud on video – borders and incursions aided and abetted by Administrations conspiracies. Feminist rights sans responsibilites – misinformation!

Smearing The Truckers (Ii) [Updated]. John Hinderaker — “The Canadian truckers’ protest has turned into a huge event that has gripped not just the political class, but millions of people across that country. As usual, the politicians who claim most vociferously to represent the people–like Justin Trudeau–are horrified when the people actually speak up.”

President Trump Weighs in on Upcoming Dinesh D’Souza Documentary. Will — “Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza just dropped a trailer to his monumentally important, new documentary, a film called “2,000 Mules.” If you’re standing up and haven’t watched it yet, you might want to sit down. It’s epic” — “scrutiny of the 2020 election continues as the country ramps up for the 2022 midterms. Dinesh has truly done us a service by creating a documentary about a subject that many surely would have preferred to stay hidden, off away in the dark where revelations about it can’t”

The border gets worse and worse. Byron York — “the news is filled with reports on Ukraine, or COVID, or the latest twists and turns of the Biden agenda on Capitol Hill. But what’s happening on the border — the U.S.-Mexico border — is important news, and you need to know more about it.”

This Is Not America, Part II. I & I Editorial Board — “The hour is dark, but we believe there will again be light. Too many of us still remember a better time before wokeness, the cancel culture, modern-day book burning (deplatforming), lockdown tyrants, mask tyrants, hateful Karens, millions gone mad because of Donald Trump, and a hopelessly corrupt press. No, not perfect, but a far better environment than the toxicity we’re living in today.”

Feminist Hypocrisy on Display as Feminists Ignore Transgender Athletes. Brian C. Joondeph — “The silence of women’s rights groups displays their hypocrisy, as they are in reality just another left-wing political advocacy group, pushing the latest progressive hot button issues. ”

The Transgender Movement is A Modern-Day Castration Cult. Armando Simón — Transgender Regret: The Apostates - Censorship and Persecution - Denial Of Reality - Recruitment and Child Abuse - Politics: “Until this insanity ends, the casualties will continue to mount in the transgender wars. And children will be the primary victims.”

Journalists and other Democrats are thoroughly confused about who spreads misinformation about COVID. Jack Hellner — “Here are some important facts we don’t seem to see:” – “Repeating talking points from so-called “experts” who willingly spread misinformation takes zero intelligence. … Joe Rogan points out that a lot of what has been classified as misinformation is now recognized as true.”

The doctors who actually do know best? Jim Hollingsworth — “These are not doctors just plucked off the street, but professionals from all over the country who are tops in their particular field.” … “Several doctors asked those who attended the rally to go home and take action to open the eyes of those around them.  Many forms of mass communication have been shut down; doctors have been removed from certain platforms.  But the truth must get out.  Otherwise, we will only have tyranny.”

Conspiracies, Reality, Ignorance, festering and boiling

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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.”

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,

Put up or shut down. Please.

Ironies abound. Yes, Virginia, there be monsters (but Santa isn’t one of them). Dragonslayers are under assault. Pragmatic and reasonable can be found as jewels in the rough. The insanity doesn’t seem to be selling very well.

Please — stop the coup porn. Victor Davis Hanson — “The three retired generals shrilly write of the dangers of insurrection and coups. Yet the FBI found no such insurrection or conspiracy in the buffoonish riot on January 6. – Only serial media misinformation and lies turned a ragtag band of misfits into an existential threat to the nation. … Ironies abound.”

Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice forbids even retired military officers publicly attacking or disparaging their current commander-in-chief. Yet several retired generals and admirals serially did just that during the last administration, smearing their president in every imaginable way, from being a Mussolini-like fascist to a veritable Nazi. … 

To restore the military’s reputation, officers should eschew politics to focus on restoring strategic deterrence and military readiness. They should keep clear of divisive domestic issues. They should stop virtue signaling to the media and influential members of Congress.

Enough, Karl Rove, enough: Put up or shut up. David Zukerman — “ Let his next column in The Wall Street Journal declare, without fear or reservation:  “The Democrats Be Damned; If Trump Is the Candidate, He Gets My Vote.”

Rove should be thankful Mr. Trump has not — and he would have good cause, I believe, to make the allegation — blamed the NeverTrump conspiracy for a) undermining his first term and b) working with the media and, of course, their Deep State Democrat allies, to badmouth the Trump campaign 24/7 with baseless intimations, innuendo, and direct statements.  The NeverTrump “fifth column” in the Republican Party arguably gave the presidency to Benighted Biden with nary a thought how their betrayal would damage national security, foreign policy, economic stability, civil liberties, and immigration issues — not to mention undoing  the good efforts of the Trump administration in starting from scratch to corral the harmful effects of the pandemic, exacerbated by political scoundrels like the former governor of the State of New York.

President Trump Supports Vaccine, Doesn’t Support Mandates. Sundance — “Given the range of opinions on the issue of the vaccines overall, and the mandate specifically, President Trump’s position seems quite pragmatic and reasonable.  He’s proud to have developed the vaccines, believes they are of benefit, but strongly respects individual choice, liberty and the freedom to decide for yourself and your family.  I don’t see anything controversial in this position.”

Biden’s Praetorian Guard? The Ashley Biden Investigation Raises New Questions Over the Use of the FBI. Jonathan Turley — “The question is why tens of thousands of dollars of purses stolen in cities like Chicago are treated as purely local matters while a single missing diary in Florida is a matter of an ongoing federal effort. — As some call for a federal response to the smash-and-grab crime wave, the feds may want to respond as well to questions about its unrelenting focus on who grabbed Ashley Biden’s diary.”

Here There Be Monsters. Alexsandar Markovic — “Evidence suggests there are powerful actors among us whose intentions, capabilities, and disregard for anyone else effectively render them implacable enemies of humanity.  No one sane wants to reach that conclusion; no one rational can avoid it any more in light of the facts.”

The foregoing are monstrous accusations, justified by monstrous acts, committed by people whose amorality and disregard for any but their own interests places them comfortably in the category of “monsters.”  People in ancient Rome, Weimar Germany, the Soviet Union, North Korea, anywhere that totalitarianism has raised its flag, were familiar with the beast.  Now it has arrived in the U.S. and western democracies.  Like it or not, we shall see how it fares there.

Kim Potter Convicted. John Hinderaker – “In recent times, two criminal defendants have had the book thrown at them in Minnesota: Derek Chauvin and Kim Potter. … we will be living with the consequences of these actions for a long time.” … “The rule of law is under attack in many ways, ranging from the burning down of the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct station to today’s unjust conviction of Kim Potter on charges that never should have been brought. I think we have barely begun to see the results of this assault, in Minnesota or across the country.”

Americans Don’t Buy The Democrats’ Line On Election Integrity .John Hinderaker — “Democrats insist that there was little or no cheating in the 2020 election, and that election integrity measures are not just unnecessary but “racist.” Today’s Rasmussen survey indicates that a substantial majority of Americans don’t buy that line.” … “This is one in a long line of polls showing that Americans understand that voter fraud happens, and don’t like it. There is strong bipartisan support for election security. By rights, this should be a winning issue, and yet the Democrats are closer to making election integrity illegal than the Republicans are to cracking down on cheating. Such is the world we live in.”

Getting the axe

Antifa Member Who Took Axe to Senate Office Given Probation and his Axe Back. J. Turley — “Starks was supported by a GoFundMe account for his defense costs despite the company barring people from contributing to defendants like Kyle Rittenhouse until after he was acquitted. He was also supported by Democratic politicians.”

The Hate That Dare Not Speak Its Name. Daniel Greenfield — “It’s time to tell the truth about the black racism, crime and terror that came to Waukesha.” … “There’s Nothing More Frightening in America Today than an Angry White Man,” a CNN op-ed headline blared after the Rittenhouse verdict. And then Darrell Brooks, a black racist, career criminal, and convicted sex offender with two open felony cases, intentionally drove into the Waukesha Christmas Parade, leaving bloody children strewn like crumpled flowers.” … “But black racists always get a pass by a media that’s happy to enable their racism. While white racism is denounced as disgraceful, black racism is embraced as revolutionary.” … “The combination of black racism and leftist support for black criminals led to the parade horror.”

House Democrats’ retributions and acting like an adult in Congress.  — “It’s time to get serious or get gone” … “this is the third time in the last 10 months that the Democrats have decided who will represent Republicans on committees. That is a bad precedent.”

A Shortage Of Gratitude From The Turkey-Cons On Thanksgiving. I & I Editorial Board — “But even some of the furthest-left Democrats in Congress, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have bemoaned the treatment of those charged for storming the Capitol, some of whom were both held without bond and placed in long-term solitary confinement, questionable treatment that “Patriot Purge” highlights. Meanwhile there are scores of examples of violent criminals around the country who are freed, with little or no bond, to hurt or kill more victims, as we just saw in Waukesha, Wisconsin.”

The Tragedy of the Climate Wars. Mike Hulm — “The tragedy, however, of Mann and people who think like him is that they view arguments about these questions through a Manichean lens: the source of all opposition to the “correct” view—Mann’s view—of what should be done about climate change is traced back to an orchestrated evil empire. The basic doctrine of Manicheanism is that of a structural conflict between good and evil.” … “The art of politics is not to get everyone to agree with you, but rather to find allies with whom you can find joint ways forward, even if sometimes compromised. Consistently demonizing those who think differently than you makes it harder, if not impossible, to forge alliances.”

Natural Law Liberalism—An Ideology for the Republican Party. Andrew Oleksiw — “Unless Republicans anchor their political value system in the absolute truth of inalienable individual rights granted by God the Creator, the Left will eventually win.” … “The erosion of the Judeo-Christian value system among substantial portions of secular Republican leaders has destroyed the glue that once subconsciously held the party together and has now left the party without a truly comprehensive value and belief system. ”

How The Left Wins. Mark Wauck — “We’ve all heard the line about winning the “hearts and minds” of the population being the key to winning a war. Over the past several generations the Left has been busy doing exactly that.”

 

Fire the Four Stars. The Washington Examiner — “The Army officer had an impressive career up until his current job.” … “The leadership failures abound.” … “The nation is blessed with the finest warriors on Earth. But it’s obvious that their top leaders are, all too often, second-rate. Congress and the White House should demand better. Where they don’t get it, they should impose it.”

Suffer the little children to come unto woke. Tim Blair — “If ever you learn your children are being subjected to the offensive inanities foisted on innocent kids by the ABC’s ‘The School That Tried to End Racism’, make it your parental duty to stress that visiting race hucksters aren’t teachers, deserve politeness but not respect and, most of all, that they make wonderful targets for irreverent sarcasm. Get to it, young ‘uns!”

Explosive Interview, UK Cardiologist Highlights Link Between mRNA Vaccines and Heart Disease, While Noting Researchers Withholding Data Fearful of Losing Funding. Sundance — “The PULS Cardiac Test measures multiple protein biomarkers and uses the results to calculate a 5-year risk score for new ACS.  From pre-Covid injection to post-Covid injection, the 5-year ACS PULS risk score increased from 11% to 25%.”

Perceptions, personal reality, and mental state in dissonance is dangerous

Erasing the Waukesha Massacre in real time. Don Surber — “Debra Messing is displeased with the media downplaying the tragedy. Perhaps this will open her eyes to all the media lies. Perhaps not.”

The Smug Party. Patricia McCarthy — “Moral superiority is their claim to fame.  Confidence in their ability is their currency. Complacency is their fatal flaw.”

Darrell Brooks did not murder those people, his SUV did.  Inflation and the hike in gas prices are not Biden’s fault.  Just ask Jen Psaki who, like AOC, never seems to have taken an Econ 101 class.  Who needs actual knowledge when, even if ignorant, you are confident, complacent, and smug?  Glenn Reynolds sagely asked “What’s wrong with “the new elite?”  forget cultural insularity or smugness.  The main problem with the “new elite” is that they’re not elite at all. That is, they aren’t particularly smart, or competent.”  That pretty much says it all about the people running the country right now.   The people pulling America’s strings are smug, inept, and very, very dangerous to us all.

South Park commented on the smugness of liberals 7 years ago

The Salvation Army Declares Themselves To Be Utterly Irrelevant. Herschel Smith — “Most of the American Church is already utterly irrelevant, having declared that they no longer believe in the infallibility of Scripture, the Deity of Christ, the Trinity, the substitutionary atonement, and other necessary doctrines to be considered relevant and orthodox.  After defenestrating doctrine, they picked up parity in income as their raison d’être.  In other words, they adopted full orbed Marxism.” And then consider what is going on in the redo of the French Cathedral,, 

Distinctions Are Necessary to a Useful Transgender Discussion. Anthony Matoria — “what appear to be extremes of views are not in fact incompatible, and are simply the distortions that result from flawed premises.” … “The current discussion of transgender issues is dysfunctional and destructive.  Emotion-laden language is substituted for reasoned debate.  The result is that the debate consists mostly of name-calling, doxxing, Twitter-rage, and deplatforming.  This is not healthy for society regarding any issue of social importance.”

Computer Science was always supposed to be taught to everyone, and it wasn’t about getting a job: A historical perspective. There is training and then there is education. This post is a bit of history and a lament that training dominates when it comes to computers.

the Democrat way

Wake Up Patriots: The Commies Are Winning, Kevin Downey, Jr. — “I used to think the nation had “systems” in place to prevent such a takeover. I was wrong. The Democrats found a way to pry Trump, a true patriot, out of the White House. Mark Zuckerberg was a big part of that plan.”

Our Phoney War. Sheryl Collmer — “Evil may attack us, but sometimes it takes a pause, lulling us into complacency before striking with greater force.” … “We are alive in this moment to take up a battle.  Whether we like it or not, this is our place in history. The enemy has been using our torpor and confusion up until now to gather its resources.  Let us make the most of the time we have left.”

Ports Of Los Angeles, Long Beach To Fine Shipping Companies For Staying Too Long In Marine Terminals. Katabella Roberts via The Epoch Times, — “Shipping companies at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach will soon be fined if their containers stay in marine terminals for too long, officials announced on Monday.” First you undercut the companies by regulating their dependencies out of business then you punich them for not being able to perform. That is the Democrat way.

Our Woke Fed. Paul Mirengoff — “Whatever one thinks about the merits of these concerns, they clearly are outside the Fed’s statutory mission. The Fed’s excursion into these areas represents a blatant case of mission creep.” … “When it comes to the focus on climate change, the Fed’s offense is even worse than intervening in areas where it lacks expertise.”

Beating the Mandates in Court. Ted Noel — “Thousands of people are challenging the vaccine mandates. For them the “get shot or get fired” ultimatum is a bridge too far.”

The National Education Association finally comes clean. M. E. Boyd — “the NEA is promoting these theories as factual and is telling teachers that they have a right to teach what is factual. Is this statement true? If we add duty, don’t public school teachers have the right and duty to teach what is true? The answer is no and yes.” … “For the NEA to approve and promote what harms a child’s heart, what harms a child’s mind, and what destroys a child’s future is wickedness beyond comprehension.”

The Enemies We Make. John Hinderaker — “I am also proud that we have made enemies of some truly hateful individuals and organizations. For me, Exhibit A is Education Minnesota, the National Education Association’s affiliate in my state.” … “Because American Experiment is alerting teachers to their constitutional rights, Education Minnesota hates us.” … “Thanks again to Education Minnesota. Since you are the inveterate opponent of any reform to Minnesota’s public schools, and the main source of Critical Race Theory’s infiltration of our schools, I couldn’t be prouder to have you as an enemy.”

No prize awarded because the nominees were white men. Don Surber — “Woke is too kind a word for this story because Scientific American now approves of discrimination based on race and sex.” … “The people these virtue signaling bigots are punishing are men who dedicated their lives to science only to be blocked at the fellowship door by a woman screaming, “Diversity today, diversity tomorrow, diversity forever.”

That Dirty Green Energy. I & I Editorial Board — “We now live in a world where political enemies accuse each other of telling the “Big Lie” to make points. But we’re not sure that there’s a bigger lie out there than the one that says renewable energy is the path to a cleaner environment.”

Science in the hands of Democrats is a weapon. Cheryl Chumley — “The science that says not to fear is being pushed to the side for the science that demands fear.”
