Climbing to the surface to breathe

The 1/6 left narrative keeps leaking. Once the House gets its leadership defined, the issue will be how much of the witch hunt over the last two years will be made public. Meanwhile, the metal detectors and other 1/6 symbols are being removed. Then there is the political persecution. Army Vet Christopher Alberts Clubbed in the Back of the Head on Jan 6 – Then Feds Arrest Him, Lie to the Court, and Are Caught Hiding Video – PLEASE HELP CHRIS ALBERTS! All of this feeds into awareness. For a catalog of The Coup We Never Knew (Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness) maybe — “we are beginning to wake up from a nightmare to a country we no longer recognize”

There are wild speculations about that football player who collapsed on the field. Cardiac Arrest in Athletes (Robert W Malone, substack) — “What is known and knowable” — is a good place to start to understand the situation. — “I truly believe that giving his physicians and trainers space to work professionally is critical: we need to allow them to do the tests, diagnostics and whatever procedures need to be performed outside of the glare of corporate media AND internet armchair physicians. We won’t get the details we would like at the moment we would like, and that is just the way things are.” — one of the contentions is a preemptive defense in the media sort of like their before-the-facts that a shooting has to be a MAGA far right plot. Get the facts first and qualify the conclusions with the extent of what is actually known. This leads to An example of liberal thinking: My recent conversation (H.P. Smith, American Thinker) —

“Logic and Truth (read: facts) mean absolutely nothing to people who live their lives based on feelings and victimhood.  When your reality has been built on a foundation of sand, you can’t allow even the smallest amount of truth to erode it away.  Today’s liberals are so incredibly out of touch, because they’ve been fed a steady diet of lies and narrative from the media, which they dominate, that they’re no longer capable of discerning fact from fiction.  Their sources of information have been peddling said fiction as fact for decades, and it’s only getting worse.

“This is what we’re up against, not even as conservatives, per se, but as thinkers. Thank goodness for the small rays of light we get from independent journalists, those who seek the truth (and the reawakening of Twitter).

For an example of just how far this delusion will go, Remember the Hysteria Over Trump’s Tax Returns? (Byron York, Townhall) — “what about the big reveal? What about the secrets of Trump and Putin hidden deep inside the tax returns? What about the national security implications of Trump’s relationship with Russia, also in the returns? What about all the fevered speculation about Trump and Russia that would be confirmed in that big stack of IRS documents? — Two words: Never mind.” — This leads to some optimism and the suggestion to Resolve to Be Undefeated (J.B. Shurk, American Thinker)) — “It is not that I have unwavering optimism that all will be well; it is that I know that the more of us who accept reality for what it is and then proceed to tackle it accordingly, the more quickly we will achieve our goals.” — “Nobody ever said wisdom comes cheaply.  As Mamet identifies in the warrior’s ethos, first we understand our circumstances honestly, then find the correct response, and finally, execute that response faithfully.”

Will medicine recover?

About that medical profession … The local gorilla still holds on to the pandemic panic, Monica Showalter asks: Remember the ‘horse paste’ hullabaloo about ivermectin? (American Thinker) — “The stuff worked, but news of ivermectin’s effectiveness was, we now learn, also censored by the government’s lackeys and lapdogs at Twitter, according to the latest Twitter files revelations, and every effort to allow news of the actual science was shut down, its proponents ridiculed as nuts and “horse-paste” enthusiasts. … now we’ve got a meta-study out, that’s a study of studies, telling the truth of the matter.” Then there’s two items at KevinMD.com.  Curtis G. Graham, MD says Think you aren’t a part of the destruction of the medical profession? Think again. His warning is about a lack of business education leading to failing private practices leading to government takeover of the profession. As if to prove his point, anonymous, a medical student, uses his first dying patient sob story to to bash insurance and highlight his revelation that ‘free market principles’ does not work in healthcare. He seems to be suffering about basic economic or historic education. His preferred route has been tried many times and the results have not been effective. He also misses the point of his sob story is a result of socialized medicine and that he should carefully consider what Dr. Graham is saying about the destruction of the medical profession.

Meanwhile, the major medical institution in Reno still thinks masks will prevent the spread of a respiratory virus. Do they still punish any of their doctors that dare to follow what used to be considered proven and accepted practice, you know – things that were actually effective like Ivermectin? Then look at the COVID inoculation are trying to do to those who keep pointing out the growing evidence and properly evaluating risk versus benefit versus cost.

Yes, how do they hold that perch when they just make stuff up?

Objective evidence inquiry (‘science’) continues to be an issue as it is corrupted by subjective ideological support. Zerohedge has stories such as To End Climate Lunacy, Stop Treating Warming & C02 Hysterically and FDA Says Ivermectin Doesn’t Work Against COVID-19 But Points To Studies That Show It Does. Aaron Sibarium describes The Hijacking of Pediatric Medicine as one outcome of ‘faux science’. — “We have documented the ideological takeover of American medicine and the law. We have exposed how many of our schools are indoctrinating children rather than educating them. And we have reported on legacy news organizations that put politics ahead of the public they purport to serve.” – the assault on children under the aegis of organizations such as American Academy of Pediatrics includes the lockdown fiasco, COVID inoculations without effective cost versus benefit consideration, climate FUD mongering, gender mutilation, education philandering to fads, masking, and indoctrination. — “The pandemic showed how a small group of like-minded doctors, acting with virtually no oversight, can push extreme policies through the AAP based on very little evidence” — 

“The reason to trust modern doctors over ancient healers is that more of what we tell you to do is justified by well-done studies,” Prasad said. “But how do we hold that perch when we just make stuff up?”

Musk is on the third tranche on the collusion between the government and BigTech to censor and squash Democrat opposition in elections. Victoria Marshall gets into another dimension of this fraud in describing how the Virginia Dems’ GOTV Guide Instructs Going After Dead People. — “I don’t know how you can in good conscience instruct your workers to solicit votes from people in those categories.” — Then there’s the saga just starting regarding Maricopa County lawfare highlighting the many problems and anomalies from the recent election there.

Ivermectin, CBS, the FBI, and never-Trumpers all in the same boat. And it leaks.

The media is in the news. CBS had a twitter fit and then agreed with the obvious that the Biden laptop was real. AP is also having problems dealing with this laptop. What Elephant? AP Denies that There is Any Evidence That Joe Biden Discussed Hunter’s Business Dealings – JONATHAN TURLEY — “this weekend, the Associated Press made a whopper of a claim that there is no evidence even suggesting that President Joe Biden ever spoke to his son about his foreign dealings. … The statement of the Associated Press at this stage of the scandal is breathtaking but telling” — But wait! there’s more! The Climate Cons – Issues & Insights — “The world’s climate criminals aren’t the energy companies selling the fossil fuels needed to power a modern economy, nor those that make the products that burn those fuels. The real offenders are the global warming alarmists who have once again revealed what the game is, and it has nothing to do with protecting the environment.” … “We hate that the lie has become the truth in the West, regarding the climate and so much more. It’s gone on for far too long. The game needs to end.” — See also The ‘Insurrection!’ House of Cards Is Collapsing where Julie Kelly warns that “The American people should prepare for more stunning revelations about the FBI’s key role in the events of January 6. … More likely than not, Wray’s latest claim that the FBI didn’t  instigate or orchestrate what happened that day will be the latest in a long list of his falsehoods.” 

VDH calls it an “expression of the most toxic and creepy culture in America.” The Strange Morality of the Bay-Area Billionaire Left . That’s all about an effort to make Mr. Ponzi’s scam look tame. Sundance looks at another example in Sunday Talks, Paul Ryan Dismisses 75 million Member MAGA Movement, Claims Corporations Will Win Power Struggle Within GOP Battle. Lloyd Billingsley pulls up Pious Candy-Ass Sidewinder from Blazing Saddle to describe another of the Ryan ilk. 

On the warfare front, William A. Jacobson describes the nature of the conflict: We Are Transitioning (again). “It’s tough out here in the real world.” Bonchie has a rundown on the latest TDS assault. Special Counsel Investigating Trump Has an Eyebrow-Raising History. — “Smith led the corrupt prosecution of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. The DOJ went to such absurd lengths to broaden the federal bribery statute to target the Republican politician that the Supreme Court eventually overturned the conviction.” — he’s got more at Another Ridiculous Criminal Investigation of Donald Trump Emerges.

Back to the “climate criminals” is The EV Boondoggle. John Hinderaker. It’s all about the money — “This whole sordid business is hopelessly corrupt, and it is antithetical to America’s economic and strategic interests. Nevertheless, it appears that EV mania will march on until it becomes obvious that the entire project is impossible.” — Medicine is also suffering from similar pressures. The gods of diversity are killing the ‘golden age’ of medicine. Andrea Widburg notes that “Those who came of age in the second half of the 20th century or later, have been blessed to witness a time of extraordinary medical progress. Now, though, thanks to academia’s mindless push for diversity, we are almost certainly on the precipice of a steep decline in the quality of medical care in America.” … “Everything the left touches it destroys and, when leftism destroys medical schools, we will all suffer.” — an example of where this leads is in The Truth About Ivermectin by Marina Zheng via The Epoch Times.

morphed into an ugly authoritarianism

Don Boudreaux says Certainty is Dangerous. He is talking about ideological certitude where there is no examination of faith. The stimulus is “Ken Burns’s, Lynn Novick’s, and Sarah Botstein’s moving new documentary, The U.S. and the Holocaust.”

“Our passions are inflamed by certainty and dampened by doubts. Only when we feel certain that members of that ‘other’ group are dangerous to us do we not hesitate to imprison or kill them. Only when we feel certain that imperiled ‘others’ are not deserving of our assistance do we, without qualms, withhold help. Feelings of certainty suppress sympathy or fellow-feeling for anyone or anything not fully on board with whatever tasks we are certain must be carried out. … 

Some examples. People who are certain that global warming will soon destroy humanity unless we radically restructure our way of life by abandoning fossil fuels have no sympathy for anyone who disagrees, nor who merely points to downsides of restricting fossil-fuel use. Those who were certain that COVID was destined to kill tens of millions of people annually across the globe, until and unless governments instituted draconian lockdowns, had only contempt and scorn for those who questioned this claim or who pointed to the downsides of lockdowns. Those who are certain that today’s income inequality reflects nothing but the pure happy chance lucked into by, or the predations committed by, the rich have no patience for arguments about how the rich might have earned their wealth honestly, nor how confiscatory taxation might destroy our economy. … 

Certainty shuts the case on whatever matters the certainty enfolds. Certainty closes off further thought, conversation, and debate. Certainty demands unquestioning loyalty and the enthusiastic performance of whatever actions are prescribed by those who are certain. Certainty tolerates no dissent.

A contrast for this is Christianity where certitude exists but it is marked by examination and debate. Compare that history with The Democrats Told Us Who They Were When They Locked Us Down – Issues & Insights and the characteristics Boudreaux noted in the documentary. — “Voters should be enraged, so alarmed at the Democrats’ systemic violations of liberty that starting today they spend the next three to four election cycles throwing the bums out. Our republic is at stake.”

Robert W Malone describes the witness of James A Thorp, Board-Certified Obstetrician cries “STOP” – “Promoting SARS-CoV-2 genetic vaccination in Pregnancy is an unprecedented ethical breach” … “This is a disaster of unparalleled proportions. I have reviewed the frightening drop in birthrates in countries all over the world since the rollout of the “vaccine”. This is emphasized by An Existential Threat to Doing Good Science where Luana Maroja says “What scientists are able to teach and what research we can pursue are under attack. I know because I’m living it” … “We each have our own woke tipping point—the moment you realize that social justice is no longer what we thought it was, but has instead morphed into an ugly authoritarianism.” Authoritarianism is based on a false certitude so now we are back at the top.

Hey Doc! What happened to medicine valuing the patient?

The medical establishment is regressing! Cameron English worries that Science destroys its credibility by embracing critical theory.  “The acceptance of fashionable nonsense is a threat to Enlightenment values and public health.”  Andrew Ross describes why he thinks Telemedicine is not medicine despite the COVID lockdown fad. Rich Yurkowitz does a Fact Check: Obamacare Failed on another word pablum used to sell a costly and ineffective solution to fears and doubts. John Hughes wonders What’s Wrong with the American College of Emergency Physicians? He notes that “Profits, social issues, physician censorship, and political pet projects seem to be guiding medical policy and therefore practice in America” rather than  “fentanyl overdoses, obesity-related morbidity and mortality, government policies causing increases in violent crime and murder, and declining economic conditions.” Olivia Murray provides a history lesson as the Medical community (once again) complicit in eugenics agenda. This is about abortion and infanticide. Stacey Lennox reports that the CDC Vaccine Advisory Group To Vote on Adding mRNA Vaccines to the Childhood Schedule. This is and absurd risk analysis conclusion going against the trend by other agencies looking at the issue and why Elizabeth Nickson wonders Just how big is our democide? 

Margot Cleveland clarifies the latest political jury decision and notes Russia Hoaxers, Not Durham, Should Be Embarrassed. The question is what can we do about such miscarriage of justice without spilling a lot of blood. On the Russian front, Boris Bondarev gets into The Sources of Russian Misconduct. He qualifies as a Kremlin defector. Then there’s Jack Hellner about how Democrats take ‘fake news’ to new lows. The propaganda machine is overt and organized.

the basic ideological definitions of governmental control to explain the political spectrum

overreach consequences – “Raiding Donald Trump’s private residence without compelling justification, the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s rule about knowing how far to go when going too far.” —  Roger Kimball: The Feds Go Too Far › American Greatness — “the FBI violated Gertrude Stein’s golden rule about knowing how far to go when going too far. They will, I predict, pay the price, and the country will be a freer, safer, less intimidated place.”

armed forces inventory – “We have what the founders feared most: a “standing” or permanent army on American soil. … there are a growing number of exceptions to which Posse Comitatus does not apply. These exceptions serve to further acclimate the nation to the sight and sounds of military personnel on American soil and the imposition of martial law. … The menace of a national police force—a.k.a. a standing army—vested with the power to completely disregard the Constitution, cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored.” — John & Nisha Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute: Weaponizing The Bureaucracy: Who Will Protect Us From The Government’s Standing Army? | ZeroHedge — “All of these assaults on the constitutional framework of the nation have been sold to the public as necessary for national security.”

anything for everything – “No one outside the ruling class would want any part of the lefts socialist national agenda, so they must lie to have any success. … evil has always had to use deception to disguise its true nature” — D. Parker: The Evil of the Anti-Liberty Left – American Thinker — “hey are not only perpetrating these horrendous policies, but outright lying so people support them without knowing what they are.  If that isn’t evil, then what is?”

it’s who they are – “This mass delusion of the left, that the former guy is “an existential threat to democracy” and a “moral emergency,” as Harris described it on British podcast “Triggernometery” last week, has metastasized under a president afflicted with a bad case of Trump derangement syndrome.” … “The antipathy to Trump among the elites is more about visceral class revulsion and a fear of contagion than his morality or politics.” … “The propaganda media of the left amplifies and twists this attitude in hateful ways.” — Miranda Devine: The left’s mask slips on brazen Trump bias — “History tells us where dehumanization always ends.”

hope for sanity – “Personal injury lawyers are either revered or reviled. Sometime purveyors of junk science, they often prey on a vulnerable and scientifically averse judiciary. But things are a’changin- at least for asbestos. And that signals bad news for the talc plaintiffs.” —  Barbara Pfeffer Billauer: Asbestos Causes Cancer? Only if You Can Prove It – and That’s Getting Harder | American Council on Science and Health

presumption is no substitute for reality – “From a societal view, we are beginning to “do right” by our veterans. From a scientific point of view, the association of these adverse health effects solely with burn pits and no other environmental factors is a bit tenuous. By not fully investigating the more specific exposures of our veterans, we are losing an important opportunity – to better understand and target what in the chemical mix of what we term PM2.5, may be a causal factor.” — Chuck Dinerstein: Let’s Talk About … Burn Pits | American Council on Science and Health

Yet the gap persists

overreach – “Outlining the “property to be seized” by the more than 30 agents who rummaged through the former president’s Mar-a-Lago mansion, the warrant demanded confiscation of any document Trump ever saw, read, or created for the entirety of his four years as commander-in-chief.” —  Tristan Justice: BREAKING: FBI Demanded Any Record Trump Saw As POTUS

Plenary, can’t you read? – “Everyone who believes that Trump committed a criminal act is wrong.  These claims completely misunderstand the nature of Trump’s (indeed, of every president’s) plenary power and how it plays out with respect to documents and classified information.” —  Andrea Widburg: No, Trump didn’t committ actionable treason or espionage – American Thinker — “the only proof you need that Trump declassified the documents is the fact that, when he was still president, Trump treated them as declassified”

Precedent. Does it matter anymore” – “The president’s defense is rooted in the legal principal that the president and vice president are the ultimate declassifying authority of the U.S. government and through executive orders most recently issued in 2003 by George W. Bush and Barack Obama in 2009 that specifically exempt the president and vice president from having to follow the stringent declassification procedures every other federal agency and official must follow.” —  John Solomon: New twist in FBI raid: Trump had ‘standing order’ to declassify documents taken to residence | Just The News — “Officials said it is likely the FBI will seek to find any officials or witnesses who knew or can confirm there was a “standing order” as described by the Trump statement. But in the end, officials said the president’s declassification powers were sweeping and likely would be viewed as such by the courts.”

Trope time – “I’m disappointed in Fox for feeding me this completely predictable propaganda couched as original material.” … “I’ve begun to hear a plan of escape.  “Well, we have to admit he is emotionally unhinged,” a man from my church told me” —  Susan D. Harris: Don’t abandon Trump because you have a DeSantis in your back pocket – American Thinker — “I believe that if we do not stand up and speak out to defend this one man who has sacrificed so much for our Republic, we’re no longer the kind of people who deserve a Republic.”

The brick wall – “It can be frustrating engaging in a discussion where facts are denied or distorted.  Equally frustrating is dealing with beliefs that are treated as facts and dependent on sound bites” —  Brian Spinosa: Talking Climate Change with Science-Deniers, Distorters, and Sound-Biters – American Thinker — “Pursuing a goal of preventing climate change seems egotistical.  Utilizing the human ability to adapt to the Earth’s ever changing complex climate system seems a better option.”

“Medical education, medical research, and standards of competence have been upended by two related hypotheses: that systemic racism is responsible both for racial disparities in the demographics of the medical profession and for racial disparities in health outcomes” … “medical schools and medical societies are discarding traditional standards of merit in order to alter the demographic characteristics of their profession. That demolition of standards rests on an a priori truth: that there is no academic skills gap between whites and Asians, on the one hand, and blacks and Hispanics, on the other. No proof is needed for this proposition” —  : The Corruption of Medicine | City Journal — “Now, tragically, when it comes to the contention that racism is the defining trait of the medical profession and the source of health disparities, opposing views have been ruled out of bounds and are grounds for being purged. The separation of politics and science is no longer seen as a source of empirical strength; it is instead a racist dodge that risks “reinforcing existing power structures,” according to the editor of Health Affairs. – The guardians of science have turned on science itself.”

The fog of corruption in justice

The big guys are after the defenseless.

Judge Amit Mehta’s Kangaroo Court › “Mehta is not the only judge on the D.C. District Court to express open contempt for Trump and his supporters—but he is by far the most powerful.” … “the powerless Americans before him have no relief in sight”

The Internal Revenue (Election Rigging) Service – “While the IRS makes it harder for you to get your refunds, Black Lives Matter is not the only sketchy Democrat-controlled election-rigging outfit whose tax-exempt status the IRS has not looked into.” … “On the one hand, they tied the hands of the Tea Party, on the other, they put on blinders to the patent corruption of the BLM and Zuckerberg-funded outfits.”

The Public Health Prophet We Did Not Heed — “Donald Henderson, who died in 2016, was a giant in the field of epidemiology and public health. He was also a man whose prophetic warnings from 2006 we chose to ignore in March of 2020” … “We instead forged ahead with lockdowns, masks, social distancing, and the rest. When faced with covid, we rejected time-tested principles of public health and embraced instead the untested biosecurity model. We are now living in the aftermath of this choice.”

Science, evidence, and social conformity

Follow the evidence, not the “science” – American Thinker – “Evidence” is far easier to understand, measure, quantify, define, and follow”

Cameron English is working on the obesity problem at ACHS and highlights the plague common to so many of today’s issues:

So many obesity experts can’t quit the idea of reshaping our “toxic” diets, even when their own research says they should, because they’re surrounded by people who share their assumptions and therefore insulated from critical scrutiny. Economist Thomas Sowell outlined how academics can fall into this trap in his book ‘Intellectuals and Society’

 … 

Nobody has the perfect population-level solution to obesity. But a couple of things are clear at this point. Policy responses to obesity often work at cross-purposes and ignore pertinent influences on weight gain, including consumer preferences and the diverse nutritional needs of different people. Whatever the ultimate solution to obesity is, it has to account for all the relevant aspects of the problem. We’ll never make much progress otherwise.

The problem with social media anonymity – American Thinker – rights have responsibilities and consequences will surface.

Solving the Deepest Questions | Power Line – Steven Hayward pulls a Reddit thread about differing ideas explaining why the chicken crossed the road. It illustrates the difficulty in finding a solution.

What Do We Know About COVID So Far? – American Thinker – Dr. Noel provides a bullet point list with some cynical commentary. 

Abortion and the Evils of the Modern Left – American Thinker – “Given the wicked Summer of Rage that we witnessed in 2020, none of this should be taken lightly”

The Grooming of our Children Takes Many Forms – American Thinker – “The larger question is what has happened to turn our public schools into radical leftist indoctrination centers?”

Normalizing Perversion – American Thinker – “If you think God is short-tempered with hypocrites, that is nothing compared to the hellish fate He has waiting for pedophiles, groomers, and other degenerates, whether they believe in God or not.”

Top three stupidest reactions from Democrats after the leak about Roe – American Thinker – “These leftists in their various states of tantrum and grandstanding are a creative bunch”

Sen. Markey Is A Dangerous Insurrectionist — Says The Supreme Court Was ‘Stolen’! – Issues & Insights – “The left’s freakout over a leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade is hardly surprising” – so many examples to compare with the J6 gulag population

A Mexican cave disgorged a massive pre-Columbian crime scene – American Thinker – “t’s wrong to pretend, as the left does, especially when teaching our children, that the Americas were a paradise of innocent peace and beauty and that the European explorers were callous murderers who forced Christianity on these gentle Gaia-worshipers”

The consequences of the stolen 2020 election are increasingly catastrophic – American Thinker – “The Democrats have descended into the ninth circle of hell.  They are willing to destroy the nation rather than see Trump’s MAGA movement succeed anywhere” … “All this chaos and destruction is due to the catastrophic consequences of a stolen election.  Purposeful?  Indeed.  The Biden administration’s agenda is the destruction of America, its middle and working classes, and the power of its currency”

It’s about the children: Two views

 

First up, 2 examples for fathers – Then there’s Dr. Lawrie vs the medical establishment – the ever continuing saga to legistlate everything – and the modern push to sacrifice children to appease one’s guilt.

The Continuing Importance of Thomas Sowell. Jason L. Riley — “When I was researching my biography of economist Thomas Sowell, I kept coming across Sowell’s own descriptions of scholars he admired, and I was often struck by how well those descriptions applied to Sowell himself” — “One of the reasons I wanted to write this biography is because so much of Sowell’s scholarship remains relevant to our policy debates today” — “Sowell has spent a career putting truth above popularity. We need a hundred more just like him”

Unapologetic Tony Dungy Smokes Out Obama’s Betrayal of Black America. Jack Cashill — “Dungy peeled back the first layer of the onion. Someone needs to keep peeling”

A Labour of Love – Part 1. Tess Lawrie — “My personal account from Dr Robert Malone’s upcoming book” — “if there’s one thing this pandemic has shown me, it is that we are never powerless” — “If ever there were an indication that scientific research and the system of government and regulatory oversight is broken, this was it” — “This pandemic has revealed to all of us how far we have strayed from what makes us human”

Ghost guns, construction tools, and even rocks. Dale Lowdermilk– “given Biden’s “safety-first” approach, stretching those regulations a little further might get everyone hyperventilating about the unrecognized hazards of other unregistered potential weapons” — “does anyone remember why spray paint was originally forced behind the sliding glass cases in California?” — “when you think of all the deadly weapons out there, ask yourself why it is that the Biden administration is going after the only one explicitly protected in the Bill of Rights”

Sacrificing childhood innocence for the sake of delusional adults? Olivia Murray — “There is a campaign underway in the public school system (among other places) — one that seeks to ravage childhood innocence through sexualization” — “At the altar of sexual deviancy, adults are laying down children as an offering”

Abortion is ‘life-saving, life-affirming health care’? Eric Utter — “Yes, it is “courageous” to refuse to accept responsibility for your own careless actions and instead decide to terminate the life of an innocent baby in your womb”

The disturbing trends in progressive support for abortion. Andrea Widburg — “Even as Americans are pulling back with revulsion at the extreme positions Democrats and other leftists take regarding human sexuality, leftists are doubling down on abortion” — “Back in the 1990s, the Clinton campaign said abortion should be safe, rare, and legal.  Implied in that phrase was the belief that abortion shouldn’t be a form of birth control but should be a step that women thought about long and hard before taking … Abortion has gone from an unpleasant “necessity” (as it was viewed then) to a sacrament” — “Moloch demanded child sacrifice.  One of the great advancements of the Jewish Bible was to reject child sacrifice and to say, instead, that helpless infants must be protected”

It’s the children. Here’s How

The
Democrats have a pedo problem
. Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory –
“From CNN producers to Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) station
chiefs and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) field agents; from
the woke Disney corporation to Democrat donors; from Hollywood to the
North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA); from Facebook/Meta
to the Lincoln Project to America’s public school system — the
progressive Left has a demonstrated prurient interest in underage
children. – “Instead of truth and exposure, we have media
silence.” – “If the mental health “professionals” of
the progressive American Psychiatric Association (APA) weren’t
themselves so deeply mentally and emotionally disturbed, the
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) would do
a deep dive on why the denizens of the left seem vastly more
predisposed to acts of pedophilia than traditionalists and people on
the Right.” – “To rephrase a couple modern figures of speech:
Democrats gonna Democrat. And yes, that is who they are.”

Biden
Administration Decides Mutilating Children Is a Civil Right
.
Bonchie – “a topic so egregiously insane that I almost feel like
I’m covering satire” – “The Biden Administration, via the
DOJ, has sent a letter to attorneys general around the country
threatening to sue if states attempt to stop the mutilation of
children in the form of “gender reassignment” surgery, hormone
blockers, and other actions that change the natural development of a
child.” – “this is truly sick and demented stuff” – “How
does a society sustain itself when one side can’t even agree on the
basic premise that children shouldn’t have their bodies mutilated
in order to “affirm” fairly normal childhood confusion?”

Supporting
Your Husband Is Empowering For Women And Clarence Thomas Reminds Us
Why
. Elle Reynolds – “In our individualist society, both
sexes are bombarded with the lie that living for your own pleasure is
the most fulfilling thing you can do.”

Jan.
6 Witch Hunt Committee Wants Garland to Hunt Trump
. Robert
Spencer – “To the Americans who have managed to stay sane amid
the prevailing madness, Attorney General Merrick Garland is a
hyper-partisan authoritarian who has sicced the FBI on parents who
are concerned about their children, exaggerating imaginary threats
for political purposes while ignoring real terrorists. But to the
even more rabid members of the House Jan. 6 committee, Garland is a
big lovable marshmallow who has been far too easy on the traitor
Trump and his white supremacist followers.” – “Despite the
facts, however, the Jan. 6 committee plows on, in what is clearly an
attempt to stigmatize and open the door to the criminalization of
dissent from the Leftist agenda”

Man
Who Exposed Hunter Biden’s Laptop Shares Disgusting Details
.
Bonchie – “few have asked exactly what happened to the man who
exposed it all” – “Things apparently got so bad that his
business was physically targeted, with people throwing rotten food at
his building” – “How he was treated by the public, the
mainstream media, the Democrat establishment, and the authorities is
inexcusable.”

Soft facts and hard conclusions

Legal process is supposed to be hard but has become mushy – Trump’s got an idea on how to harden staff – Democrat leadership is a wooden knife in a a hard context – Google fondles evil for hard results on soft perceptions – security guarantees are maybe not as hard as many assumed – Tabarrok notes an interview with sense about Russia – The Atlantic figures that the horror of a nuclear holocaust is what happens to global weather – NGO’s influence is insidious – Rittenhouse retractions – Brady leads – and medical professionals through out a century of experience gained knowledge

Wait…That’s How Long a Jan. 6 Defendant Has Been Detained With No Indictment. Matt Vespa — “This sounds like something out of North Korea, Hussein’s Iraq, or Castro’s Cuba. We have a person detained for nearly 90 days without an indictment. Why? Well, this person was around the Capitol Building during the January 6 riot.” – “While it’s perfectly fine to dismiss January 6 because it wasn’t that big of a deal, the fact that the nation is falling apart because Joe Biden is a failed president also lends itself to be a massive cover to those who were illegally detained, like Mr. Denney.”

Now You’re Talking: Trump Offers a Proposal to Destroy the Deep State. Robert Spencer — “Virtually all Americans believed, until the inauguration of Donald Trump as president on January 20, 2017, that when someone became president, he could begin to implement his agenda. Certainly Old Joe Biden’s handlers have done so with a vengeance since they took over; but when Trump became president, he immediately began to encounter resistance from entrenched members of the government bureaucracy who refused to do as he ordered.” – “It’s a commonsensical solution, as Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance pointed out. “Everyone is losing their mind about this, but I’ve been calling for it at every town hall I do. Either the president controls the executive branch or he doesn’t. If he doesn’t, we don’t live in a Republic, we live in a civil service driven oligarchy.”

Democrat leadership has devalued America beyond recognition. Terry Paulding — “Elections have consequences. How many times have you heard that? It’s certainly true. The world has been watching our country tilt to the dark side, which set things in motion that have consequences far beyond our own society. I see what is happening in Ukraine, at least in part, as the result of our dishonest left’s manipulation, leading to the emasculation and degradation of our once well-ordered society.”

Google Attacks Us For Reporting On Our Own Poll — Calls It ‘Harmful lnformation’. I & I Editorial Board — “kudos, Google. You’ve just taken another step towards acting like a totalitarian dictator. Remind us again of what that motto was you used to parade around. Be evil? Be like Stalin? Help us out here.”

Security Guarantees, Real And Imagined. John Hinderaker — “It is highly unlikely that we will elect a president more feckless than Joe Biden, but it it useful to see how that possibility weighs on the minds of European decision makers. But the key point here is that the Europeans might be able to defend themselves while the U.S. focuses on the Pacific.” – “Donald Trump was right: it is long past time for powerful European countries, including Germany, to look to their own defense, even if in cooperation with us. And, of course, the more able they are to defend themselves against Russian aggression, the more likely they are to receive military help from their NATO allies, including us, should the time come.”

Kotkin on Russia and the West. Alex Tabarrok — “Kotkin has some some thoughts on the Kennan, Mearsheimer, Kissinger, Hill, Service et al. view that expanding NATO was a precipitating event in the Ukraine-Russia war which are well taken, albeit he fails to think on the margin. Much more important is his full throated defense of the West. Just a few months ago a defense like this would have been branded as right-wing agitprop and the author attacked for not being woke to the evils of capitalism. But Putin has reminded the West of its virtues.”

The Atlantic’s take on nuclear war shows us why satire is impossible today. Andrea Widburg — “I would have imagined that most people would have a strong enough grasp on reality to think that the worst things flowing from a nuclear war would be the instant deaths of tens of people, the survivor’s slow radiation poisoning, vast segments of the world’s entire infrastructure permanently broken, and human life entering a period of almost unimaginable apocalyptic horror.”

Maria Bartiromo’s Sources Are Right: The Biden Administration Is Actively Partnering With Putin On Climate And Iran. Emily Jashinsky — “Whether or not you agree with the wisdom of these decisions, the Biden administration is openly continuing to treat Russia as a ‘partner’ on climate and Iran.”

Green Politicians Closing Nuclear Plants Are Putin’s ‘Useful Idiots’. Chris Tomlinson — “In 2017, United States congressmen Lamar Smith and Randy Weber wrote a letter to then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin claiming that Russia had used shell companies in Bermuda to funnel money to various NGOs and claimed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had admitted at a private dinner that Russia funded NGOs.”

Tom Brady Returns! John Hinderaker — “What Brady has achieved can’t possibly be the result of unique athletic talent. Rather, it must represent an all-time great lesson in what it means to be a leader. To elevate those around you to a level that they didn’t know they could attain.”

An Academic Coda on Kyle Rittenhouse. Seth Barrett Tillman — “Academics make mistakes. – They join in group think. – They retract. – Sometimes they do not even notice that they are retracting. – And they cover their tracks. – It is not a very pretty picture.”

disastrous policies to destroy

They thought Trump was raising the odds of a nuclear war – projection, anyone? The war in Europe has tangled roots – insurrection exposed. more projection – and yet more on the NYT complicity – The police were left out to dry on 1/6 – There was a massive protest, did you hear about it on the news? – facts and reality seem to be missing in so many ‘discussions’

DC Elites Have Opened Americans To Nuclear Attack, So Americans Must Protect Themselves. Brian T. Kennedy — “America’s Democratic elites have intentionally left us vulnerable to nuclear attack in the belief that nuclear war was not possible.” – “At the heart of a free society is the ability to engage in civil discourse about, among other things, the defense of one’s civilization. This is not, unfortunately, possible in America at present.” — “Our enemies see weakness everywhere in Washington. It would be good to demonstrate to them the resolve of the American people, and to do so immediately.”

Here’s the truth on Ukraine, as far as I can tell. Dan Truitt — “Trump’s right: Putin is a genius.  Unfortunately, we seem to be in a historically rare period in which the leaders of 1.5 billion people — i.e., the West — are to a person feckless, obtuse, senile, or some combination of the three.”

The Morning Briefing: Enemy of the People Media and the Insurrection That Never Was. Stephen Kruiser — “The Democrats’ obsession with the non-insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021, is actually everything they say the events of that day were: a dangerous threat to our freedom. – Their friends in the media help them get away with continued perversions of their oaths of office and justice.”

Project Veritas PSA.

Matthew Rosenberg Keeps Talking.  Scott Johnson — “New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg was one of the three reporters with a byline on the January 11, 2017 story “How a Sensational, Unverified Dossier Became a Crisis for Donald Trump.” The story is a confused mashup of the facts as we have come to know them in connection with the Steele Dossier. The three reporters had the assistance of three more “who contributed reporting,” and they still couldn’t get to the bottom of the story. Not even close.”

Capitol Police Were Severely Unprepared To Handle Events Of Jan. 6, 2021  Jordan Boyd — “The report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that most of the 315 officers interviewed felt severely unprepared to handle any unauthorized breach of Capitol property.” – “Capitol Police officials and even D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser have admitted that Jan. 6 exposed key failures of the law enforcement department, but so far, the department has largely failed to implement the recommendations made by the Capitol Police Inspector General and others.”

Is The Times Finally Catching On? John Hinderaker — “Here are the charts: — The lack of a clear pattern is itself striking. — I would say there is an obvious pattern, it just isn’t the one the Times wanted to see. — The Times piece is full of factual and logical errors.”

Rolling with the People’s Convoy. B. Crat — “Concerns about growing government tyranny don’t end with COVID mandates and restrictions, either — I know I am terrified of getting a knock at the door asking if I was in the convoy and why.”

If You Thought The COVID Thought Police Were Bad, You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet. I & I Editorial Board — “The COVID pandemic unleashed Big Tech censors in a big way.” — “Already, Big Tech is sharpening its algorithms to go after the next target – imposing speech codes regarding “climate science.” — “So, keep this in mind. The left isn’t just going to hand back the controls it amassed during COVID. It will look for new ways to use these tools – emboldened by the public’s demonstrated pliability in the face of “public health” authoritarianism – to control still more aspects of our lives. – All in the name of the “greater good.”

Why the bid to destroy the fossil fuel industry when past predictions of doom have been completely wrong? Jack Hellner — “Shouldn’t government policies be based on factual scientific data instead of easily manipulated computer models, especially policies that remake or destroy so much that improves are quality and length of life?” — “The disastrous policies to destroy the fossil fuel industry are decimating the poor, the middle class, and small business, and it is all based on computer models, not facts”

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.”

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.”

Sacrifice and the ugly religion in false color

The underground has money and resources to uncover the fraud – Peaceful protests get smeared – those who tried to escape describe the horrors – money is diverted and people die – but some step forward.

2,000 Mules, The Background of the 2020 Election Fraud. Sundance — “What people call “ballot traffickers” are actually ballot “mules.” – “We know, to a demonstrable certainty, the political network of the Lawfare crew is also on standby against this election investigation” – “Big Tech and Corporate Media have been instructed to push the “domestic extremist” narrative, and any truth-tellers are considered subversive and against the interests of the U.S. government. The January 6th DC protest is being used as evidence for that narrative. Deplatforming, censorship and ultimately control of voices who would warn of the larger issues continues daily.”

The bottom line is this…. AG Merrick Garland knows a powder keg could explode as soon as the majority of American people discover just how manipulated the election of 2020 was. His previous announcements to double the staff of the DOJ Civil Rights Division voter unit was not to protect election integrity, but rather to position his resources for a war against a looming storm of election review outcomes.

The deep and irrefutable research was taking place, mostly very quietly, in the background. I expect the government response to the final assembly of findings will be a combination of the DOJ/FBI “domestic extremist” narratives, combined with racism accusations, claims of election disinformation and eventually the full weaponized deployment of the DOJ and FBI against the teams who put it together.

The Alinsky model: Isolate, Ridicule and Marginalize your political opposition, in combination with the use of arrests and threats by the justice department.

Smearing The Truckers. John Hinderaker — “Liberals have hoped for the protest to turn violent, but it hasn’t happened” … “So now the Left is against desecrating monuments! I thought it had become more or less compulsory. — Putting aside whatever you may think about vaccination mandates, the hostility of the press’s response to any movement that expresses a desire for freedom is striking.”

Must-see video: A woman from a communist country explains liberty to a Canadian reporter. Andrea Widburg — “Although the mainstream media are utterly silent about it, something very big has been happening in Canada.”

Pittsburgh bridge’s 2016 infrastructure funding reportedly diverted to bike lanes and green energy programs. Monica Showalter — “Instead of repairing the bridge with what likely would have been the Obama-era shovel-ready 2009 infrastructure funds for “roads and bridges,” known as the “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” the cash went to bike lanes and green boondoggles, and too bad about the actual structure that was decaying and deteriorating.” … “Voters have seen this show before, so one hopes that the Pittsburgh people Biden was addressing and everyone else give it the back of their hands.”

In the 21st century, we’ve entered a brave new era of child sacrifice. Andrea Widburg — “In ancient times, pagans sacrificed children to propitiate angry, erratic, and inscrutable gods, hoping that giving up their most precious possessions would save the entire community. Leftists are still doing that, not just with abortion, but with their COVID policies and the madness of their decriminalizing crime.”

Leftists may claim to be secular but that’s not true. They just worship different gods—themselves, Gaia, criminals, etc. And their gods are hungry gods who demand young blood, which leftists seem awfully glad to provide.

‘Someone Opened the Doors From the Inside,’ Jan. 6 Defense Attorney Says. [Epoch Times caveat] Joseph M. Hanneman — “The 20,000-pound Columbus Doors that lead into the Rotunda on the east side of the U.S. Capitol are secured by magnetic locks that can only be opened from the inside using a security code controlled by Capitol Police”

The COVID-19 Storyline Is the Greatest Scam in World History – The Truth Is This Is a ‘Pandemic of the Vaccinated’. Wayne Allyn Root — “even I was shocked by the plethora of stories coming out just in the past week, from all corners of the world, suggesting the vaccines are indeed a terrible failure and are causing a mass die-off.”

Defeating American Marxism. Bruce Colbert — “Poland successfully, nonviolently defeated Marxism, and is a model for defeating Marxism in America today.  Poland, faced with the Marxist destruction of their heritage and society, created a heritage and spiritual renewal movement, which led to Solidarity and to the end of communist rule in Poland and subsequently in the nations of Central and Eastern Europe, between 1979 and 1991.”

“I Knew It Was Wrong,” I Saved My Husband’s Life With Ivermectin. Herschel Smith — “his is one big reason doctors and hospital administrations are so reluctant to use Ivermectin, along with the fact that state boards will take their license.  This is about money – money from the FedGov, and money for hospitals and big Pharma.” — “Just stop with the notions that she owed fealty to the government over her husband’s medical care.  She didn’t, and her actions weren’t “wrong,” as she put it.”

Medicine: The Latest Log on the Left’s Bonfire of Meritocracy. J.B. Shurk — “The professional practice of medicine in the United States has always been held in great esteem because it was seen as a calling that required hard work, discipline, objectivity, and dedication to truth.  After two years of watching doctors all around the country mindlessly follow Commissar Fauci down his rabbit hole of politicized science, though, a lot of Americans will never see medicine the same way.” — “Where merit disappeared, dogma took over. … We are left with a professional class, then, unable to perform its duties and steeped in contradiction. ”

It’s complicated: Clinton Corruption, Dissonance, Leftists and Christians, The Truckers

The People’s House vs the people, and the law, and whatever other nuisance they encounter – Corrupt politicians Clinton and Biden – Gaslighting or Dissonance? – fact checkers and tactics – anchors aweigh as Sci Am moves even farther into wokeland.

The Capitol Police Are Spying on Members of Congress, and the Details Are Incredibly Disturbing. Bonchie — “The events of January 6th have been used as a pretense by partisans for all kinds of insanity over the last year.” … “Bleating that “we are trying to keep people safe” is not a blanket authorization for the federal government to do whatever it wants. There are supposed to be boundaries, and I believe those boundaries are being violated here, certainly in spirit.”

House Democrats Won’t Release Required Staff Reports In J6 Probe. Tristan Justice – “The American people deserve a transparent accounting of the J6 Committee’s operations, budget, and staff structure, as well as its interview and deposition procedures,” Banks and Davis wrote as the partisan probe violates norms and targets political opponents. … “The Jan. 6 Select Committee has also developed a record of fabricating documents and timelines.”

House Republicans Demand Records Over Capitol Police Surveillance Of Constituents. Tristan Justice — “House lawmakers questioned the authority under which Capitol Police may engage in the extensive surveillance of private citizens.”

“The right to petition your government is baked into the Constitution of the United States, right there in the First Amendment,” Bovard wrote. “That does not include submitting to a virtual cavity search, and having private records stored as a result, without your knowledge or consent.”

What Did Clinton Know and When Did She Know It? The Russiagate Evidence Builds. Paul Sperry — “With each new indictment and court filing, Clinton inches closer to the center of the special prosecutor’s investigation, now in its third year.”

Why Putin Hasn’t Been Deterred. Victor Davis Hanson  — “Americans also grudgingly accept that Ukraine was often historically part of Russia.”

Why Do Media Ignore Biden Family’s Corruption? I & I Editorial Board — “It’s a curious thing: Obvious, credible signs about a prominent political family emerge, but federal authorities at the Justice Department and elsewhere do nothing. Meanwhile, leftist media “watchdogs,” in a classic case of gaslighting, pretend that nothing has happened.”

Accepting money and doing political favors on behalf of a potentially hostile foreign nation isn’t just wrong; it’s a felony. Worse, it’s a betrayal of the American people’s trust. If the big media truly care about repairing their low standing with average Americans, they might start by doing something they’ve failed to do so far: Their jobs.

‘Walk Away’ Activist Brandon Straka Can Finally Speak About Being Under the FBI’s Thumb After Jan 6. Victoria Taft — “Straka was in D.C., as many activists were, to give a speech on Trump’s behalf. Going to, but not inside, the Capitol Building after President Trump’s speech turned into a “year long nightmare” in which he suffered “from the abuse of the legal process” and a “savage campaign to destroy me. It didn’t.”

Why The Wall Street Journal Is Wrong About The 2020 Election. William Doyle — “The problem is not ‘mass voter fraud,’ but a privately funded ‘shadow campaign’ for Joe Biden within the formal structure of the election system.”

Expert Hacker’s 25,000-Word ‘Secret Report’ Threatens to Uncover Georgia’s Real Election Vulnerabilities. Kyle Becker — “Halderman found that malicious software could be installed on voting touchscreens so that votes are changed in QR codes printed on paper ballots, which are then scanned to record votes, according to court documents,”

Fact-Checkers Are Used To Confuse The Public: Sharyl Attkisson. Masooma Haq and Jan Jekielek via The Epoch Times — “Five-time Emmy award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson said she has seen an increased effort to manipulate the public to appreciate censorship and disapprove of journalism. One of the strategies that has been employed is the use of third-party fact-checkers”

Dealing with Cognitive Dissonance. Jack Gleason — “holding conflicting views can be very uncomfortable.  The term “cognitive dissonance” comes up regularly in political discussions, probably because these issues are rarely cut and dried, but are considered very important” … “Don’t argue your points, instead keep asking more questions.” … “If we can’t learn how to talk honestly with each other, our country will remain permanently divided, and a divided house will soon fall.”

Shareholder Capitalism v. Stakeholder Capitalism. Chris Talgo — “For centuries, the chief objective of public corporations in the United States has been to maximize shareholder profits. Although this may seem rapacious, it is not.” … “After hundreds of years of astonishing success, we should be celebrating shareholder capitalism for all of the remarkable achievements it has helped usher into our lives.”

Emulating Islam: The Left’s War on the Christian Cross. Raymond Ibrahim — “In many ways, the “secular Left” and Islam appear to be diametrically opposed: the Left is sexually promiscuous, Islam isn’t; the Left believes in countless genders, Islam doesn’t; the Left believes in all sorts of freedoms, Islam believes only in draconian sharia — and so on and so forth.  – When it comes to Islam’s views on Christianity, however — that it is an inferior faith to be subjugated and discriminated against (Koran 9:29) — the Left appears to be in agreement.”

LGBTQ activists are vigorously attacking Christianity. Andrea Widburg — “Leftism truly hates the Bible.  Their creed is inconsistent with the Bible’s commitment to the worth of the individual, its focus on justice, and its insistence on moral standards.”

How To ‘Prove’ A Chemical Is Dangerous: The Glyphosate Case Study. Cameron English – “The fact that GM Watch wants to elevate a single study over this massive body of peer-reviewed evidence, as well as the conclusions of 16 regulatory and scientific agencies, should set off alarm bells in your head.” … “that doesn’t negate the simple fact that we have to account for all the evidence we have before drawing conclusions.”

The New Lysenkoism. Nicholas Wade — “Scientific American’s broadside against E. O. Wilson fits a fashionable, science-denying trend.”

The Numbers Don’t Lie.  John Hinderaker — “Some jurisdictions pursued aggressive shutdown strategies to “fight” covid, while others did not. These shutdowns made no apparent difference in covid rates, but they had devastating consequences for the livelihoods of millions of Americans.”

Sen. Ron Johnson’s Latest Covid Panel Reveals 800,000 People And Counting Want ‘A Second Opinion’. Kylee Zemoel — “ Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin hosted a panel of experts on Capitol Hill on Monday for an event dubbed “COVID-19: A Second Opinion,” to discuss early treatment of the coronavirus and so-called vaccines — and there was quite an audience for it.”

You’ll stand up and cheer after seeing these Canadian trucker convoy videos. Andrea Widburg — “it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that Canada’s truckers, rather than meekly yielding to this unreasonable, tyrannical mandate, organized a vast convoy (70 km long) that’s traveling to Ottawa, Canada’s capital.” … “One more thing: As you look at those truckers, remember that nonviolent protests by shipyard workers in the Polish city of Gdansk started the domino effect that pulled down the entire Soviet Union.”

False flags and perverse incentives

Andrea Widburg and Daniel Greenfield have their say. No shame, though, even for gross malfeasance or hospitals seeking death for financial gain.

The 1/6 Select Committee Witch Hunt. Clarice Feldman — “For quite some time, Congress has ceded its constitutional power to legislate to the unelected administrative state — at least when Democrats are both the congressional majority and hold the White House. Now, having ignored its true function, it seeks to expand its mandate to judicial powers.” … “Will we even hear a congressman or senator ask the committee if it has no shame in this witch hunt?”

Did over 100,000 people older than 124 years vote in Wisconsin? Andrea Widburg — “If you’ve been wondering about the extent of voter fraud in America, we may be seeing a staggering amount of either fraud or grotesque negligence in Wisconsin voter rolls.”

A purported ‘Patriot Front’ video has all the hallmarks of a false flag. Andrea Widburg — “One of the unpleasant realities that became patently clear during 2021 is that leftist operatives, whether inside or outside of the government, have a new tactic to discredit conservativism: They pretend to be conservatives, either to entrap conservatives or to falsely expose them as bad people.”

There’s a reason for the chaos that controls within the Democrat party. Andrea Widburg — “what held Democrats together over the last five years and provided the fuel that powered their engines was Trump Derangement Syndrome. … Now, though, says Greenfield, they’ve got…nothing” — “What America cannot recover from is an entirely shiny new, fully socialist infrastructure. The only way things go after that is the Venezuela way. However, if Daniel Greenfield is correct, the Democrat party, untethered to Trump hatred, is too incompetent to make real socialism happen. (Thank God!)”

Wife Stands Off With Hospital To Keep Her Husband Alive, And Wins. Matt McGregor via The Epoch Times — “The judge sided with Holsten, issuing the order based on the standard that irreparable harm would result if not issued, which Holsten said was easy to establish because if Scott had been taken off, he would have died. - On Jan. 15, Scott was transferred out of Mercy Hospital and taken to an undisclosed hospital in Texas, where Holsten said the doctors have reported Scott to be malnourished, having lost 30 pounds underweight, and dehydrated.” — ““The numbers are quite large,” Malone told Rogan. “There’s something like a $3,000 basically death benefit to a hospital if it can be claimed to be COVID. There’s a financial incentive to call somebody COVID positive.””

So what’s new?

Land of the Free?  Really? — another hoax revealed — information slowly crawling out from under the media pillow.

Biden’s Attack On Voting Rights Far Surpasses Trump’s Election Claims. Margot Cleveland — “In one week alone, President Biden eclipsed everything Donald Trump and his supporters said about the validity of the 2020 election.” … “May God save our country if the people actually believe him.”

Wokeness Hits the Upper Echelons of the Air Force. Mark Jarrett — “The gist of the story is that the Air Force Special Tactics community encountered wokeness, but resistance in the lower ranks sparked a backlash.” … “What I want to elucidate is how this episode is representative of how wokeness often works and how it was resisted.” … “Quite simply, regardless of the outcome, it is important to stand up for reality, even if it means sacrifice.”

A Republican NeverTrump senator reveals more than he meant. James Mullin — “After a lengthy harangue about Jan. 6, the depraved perpetrators, and the evil Donald Trump, he provided two very odd statements.  First, he informed me that 570 people are still held in D.C.’s jails. … were mostly kept in “restricted housing,” which translates to solitary confinement or other extreme denials of privileges normally granted to the general prison population.” … “here was an admission in writing that a large number of Americans are being held without trial under conditions that the Geneva Conventions would object to.  Moreover, they violate the Constitution’s promise of both a speedy trial and the right to be free of cruel and unusual punishment (especially before a trial is carried out with the proper due process and an actual conviction).”

Not One Corpse Has Been Found In The ‘Mass Grave’ Of Indigenous Children In Canada. John Daniel Davidson — The whole story, it seems, was concocted to stir up hatred against Christians and stoke outrage. It succeeded.”

Solar: An Example of Grassroot Opposition. Robert Bradley Jr. — “The rebuttal by Frank Lewis (to Pamela Reeder) is noteworthy, throwing punch after punch against the idea that solar has any advantage, just disadvantages.”

New research suggests COVID was less deadly than thought in first year of pandemic. Greg Piper — “Meta-research pioneer John Ioannidis of Stanford cuts “infection fatality rate” by half for age groups including young people, using international “seroprevalence” review.”

New Peer-Reviewed Study Shows Ivermectin ‘Significantly’ Reduces COVID Infections, Hospitalization, and Mortality Rates. Debra Heine — “The largest ivermectin study to date was conducted in Itajaí, Brazil, between July 2020 and December 2020. It recently passed rigorous peer-review and was published this week” … “The corporate media meanwhile still refuses to challenge the medical establishment’s false narrative on early treatments, even when proven wrong by studies like this one.”
