Funny how that works – predictable antics

Watergate in the balance – Scott Johnson — “As a candidate with no government power, Hillary Clinton seems to have lacked the resources Nixon thought he could draw on. Yet the Clinton campaign successfully defamed candidate Trump, compromised or paralyzed his presidency, and did real damage to the United States. The sinister role of the prestige press in retailing the Russia hoax deserves special mention. It helps to have the press in bed with you.”

Tale of Two Trials: How Sussmann is Receiving Every Consideration Denied to Flynn – JONATHAN TURLEY — “Whereas Flynn’s prosecution was a no-holds-barred affair, Sussmann’s prosecution has been undermined by a series of unfavorable rulings by the court” … “While the judge in Flynn’s case was eager to remove obstacles from the prosecution’s path, the judge in Sussmann’s case seems to have created a virtual obstacle course for Durham.”

What does hate get you? – H.P. Smith — “We are in this mess because the Left once again has showed their true colors.  The accepting, caring and tolerant Left reaffirmed that they are indeed none of the above, and that they are actually fueled almost exclusively by hatred”

Elongate — John Hinderaker — “A woman has made a hearsay allegation against Elon Musk” … “Funny how that works: no one needed to know any of this until Musk undertook to buy Twitter and turn it into a free speech zone”

Climate Risk and Wall Street Meet Cancel Culture — Steven Hayward — “Stuart Kirk, head of “responsible investing” for HSBC, gave a presentation at a Financial Times “Live Moral Money Summit Europe” a few days ago in which he shredded the climatista claim about financial climate risk.” … “Needless to say, you can’t say this! And so the predictable has happened:”

The Collapse of Trust – Allan J. Feifer — “The issue at play now is that the majority of Americans have lost trust in our ability to govern and also, whether our leaders are even telling us the truth or are we simply being manipulated?” … “We have arrived at a point that appears intentional. The utter disregard for breaking the sacred bond between ordinary Americans and their leadership, fealty to the principles and practices of a nation that has stood for good, stood for a better tomorrow, and been that beacon of hope to the entire world is now in doubt.”

The evil drift

Liberalism and the Problem of Evil – Philip Ahlrich — “Political evil is a contagion of psychological immaturity, self-delusion, and counterfeit justification, and its virus has spread throughout America’s liberal ruling class.”

When You Label Half of the Country Racist… – Blaine L. Pardoe — “Overnight, anyone who had conservative values and voted Republican was complicit in mass murder and carried the taint of being called a racist… or so the Left hoped.”

The Democrats’ push for reparations will only make things worse – Kathleen Brush — “Under the guise of remedying historical sins, the government is stoking racial divisions at every corner” … “The government’s failure to contemplate the combined impact of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, and the Great Society (1964–1965) counts among the grossest acts of U.S. government negligence.”

“The national alarm should be sounding over the racialization of medical school education” — William A. Jacobson — “At least 39 of America’s 50 most prestigious medical colleges and universities have some form of mandatory student training or coursework on ideas related to critical race theory (CRT), according to CriticalRace.org, which monitors CRT curricula and training in higher education” — also see Critical Race Theory has infected 80% of the top U.S. medical schools – American Thinker.

The Leftward Drift of the Legal Profession is Cause for Concern – Mike LaChance — “lawyers are no longer primarily the allies of commercial classes, as they were in the early republic, but instead the technocrats and enablers of regulation and redistribution” … “The transformation of the legal profession marks a fundamental change in American democracy”

In seeking to demean Trump, The Wall Street Journal demeans itself – David Zukerman – “No good will come of the effort.” … “Whoever is in charge of the Capitol Police, it is not the president.  Clearly, Congress, not the president — if the USA Today article is correct — had the responsibility to move to stop the tumult. ”

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”

I will not surrender this Nation to the abhorrent behavior that I saw

Dreams without substance kill – Desperation drives suffers over the edge – A kid born in a black only hospital wonders about vehemence – VDH on the new rules – Demons and angels are both with us all —  Chicago re-education – american style disinformation – is it the guns or the criminals? – A bit of history on the end of the Chinese empire era in 1911 –

“Green” Dreams Kill People. John Hinderaker — “Wind and solar are not remotely competitive. They exist only because of government subsidies and, worse, mandates. The FARM act would at least ensure that we, the taxpayers, are not paying to destroy farm land at a time when the world needs all of the food America can produce.”

The Feds Are So Desperate For Violent ‘White Supremacy,’ They’re Fabricating It. Madeline Osburn — “The FBI’s governor-kidnaping hoax demonstrates just how serious federal law enforcement agencies are about pursuing domestic extremists, even if it means the alleged threat originates in Washington, D.C. or FBI field offices.” — “If the Whitmer case is any indication, this type of hyperfocus will incentivize federal law enforcement to go to whatever lengths necessary when investigating potential domestic extremists, no matter how overstated the risk.”

Race and American Exceptionalism. Allen West — “Before I even arrived, the nature of my visit was made controversial when students on the campus ripped down flyers and even conducted a campus walking protest. Therefore, I knew this would be quite the hostile environment. – The question I have is, why?” — “I will not surrender this Nation to the abhorrent behavior that I saw at the University of Buffalo last Thursday…join me in that stand to preserve the last best hope for mankind, these United States of America”

The Debasement of Our Professional and Political Classes. Victor Davis Hanson — “Leftist professionals in politics, government, and private enterprise debased themselves for short-term political gain, or in furor at their bogeyman Trump, or in anger at the unwashed.” — “Will Republican magnanimity suffice to shame the Democrats to be more professional in the future? Or will tit-for-tat deterrent reciprocity alone ensure a return to norms?”

The Reeducation of America: Obama Calls on Our “Better Angels” to Change Voter Viewpoints. Jonathan Turley — “It was a confab of the liberal politicians and journalists over how to deal with problems like Republicans, Fox News, roughly half of the voters and most television viewers” — “Tennessee Williams once lamented, “If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels.” That fear came to mind this week when former President Barack Obama called upon “our better angels” at the ironically named “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference at the University of Chicago” — “The Chicago conference resembled a mainstream-media version of a car show, featuring new political-narrative models for eager buyers” — “The conference was more about the demons than the angels of the mainstream media. The sense of frustration was palpable” — “we once believed good ideas can prevail over bad ones in an open marketplace of ideas. Instead, this crusade to rid liberals of their demons would kill the most angelic part of who we are as a people”

Disinformation, American style (4). Scott Johnson — “Chicago Thinker editors Audrey Unverferth and Evita Duffy take a look back at the Thinker’s subversion of the nauseating University of Chicago Institute of Politics/Atlantic Disinformation Conference last week”

After a gang shooting, who should be deprived of guns? Charles Turot — “The Officeholder Formerly Known as Joe Biden reacted immediately, quite unsurprisingly calling for further restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.  For leftists, this non sequitur comes as easily as breathing” — “As we confront yet another assault on our God-given right to defend ourselves, let’s imagine how firearms laws yet to be enacted might have protected those killed in Sacramento”

Thank Pence for Biden’s Trainwreck. John Nantz — “There can be little doubt that former Vice President Mike Pence thought he was doing the right thing.” — privileged and protected content at Townhall. too bad. See freerepublic.  — Too many abandon their duty for what appeases them and their circle – Just look at the case of the Pope in Malta for another example.

Why Sun Yat-Sen Was An American Thinker. Laura Lam — “Sun remains the only political leader honored by both mainland China and Taiwan. What’s fascinating about Sun, but little known in America, is that his birthplace, formal education, medical training, religious faith, and political values made him a true American”

Just in Time for the Apocalypse: Albrecht Durer and a Different Take on the Symbolism of the Four Horsemen. Richard Bledsoe — “The mighty would fall once the people had enough of their BS. We will bypass their precious assumptions and entitlements, and make them obsolete. We are out-evolving them”

intellectually and morally bankrupt

Start at 1600 and 1633 to know it’s not a new phenomena but you’d think people would learn. bad think. — see what is happening in the science community and classroom and wonder why. Then there’s the media and the Left’s idea of protecting the children …

COVID, Gender, Climate, and the Collapse of Science. Neil A. Kurtzman — “As many scientists have behaved like fools, the discipline itself is in jeopardy of being thought stained and unreliable.” — “The loss of core beliefs is fatal to self-government. The value of science to the health of the planet and its occupants is almost beyond measure … It would be the cruelest of fates if science were brought down by those who claim to speak in its name”

‘Ideological Intolerance’ invading science classrooms. Eric Utter — “Students are increasingly displaying “ideological intolerance in the science classroom,” according to Williams College Associate Professor of Biology Luana Maroja” — “What does it tell you about leftists/progressives that they don’t believe certain minorities are capable of being…capable? Or reasonable?”

What Disproves the ‘White Supremacy’ Narrative. William Sullivan — “they’ve gotten creative in recent decades, finding their magic beans … The intention, of course, is that the reader will assume that this disparity exists primarily due to racial discrimination in our society.  Notably missing, however, is literally any other demographic data whatsoever beyond that binary comparison” — “imagine being so intellectually and morally bankrupt as to see all of this easily recognizable evidence, yet still try to argue that “white people earn more than black people, and therefore racism.”  Then, you’ll better understand the true nature of those wicked race hustlers who push this toxic swill on our children and tear our social fabric apart”

Where’s NY Post’s Pulitzer? Don Surber — “It is a great and true newspaper story that puts _All the President’s Men_ to shame” — “the media stopped caring about reporting the truth a generation ago. It is all about promoting socialism and protecting the deep state now. The communists knew how to do it.”

Creepy Joe Biden, groomer-in-chief. Don Surber — “The sudden push by Democrats for pedophile rights — Minor Attracted People or MAP as they say — should surprise no one” — “Joe Manchin is cool with light sentences for child pornographers and abusers of children, even those who torture babies. – All the party’s apparatchiks are. Their voters are not there.” – “The media is totally cool with this because stopping Trump from making America great again was of paramount importance”

It’s just words on paper

Biden Administration To Demand Colleges Erase Women’s Sports, Due Process, Free Speech, And Men And Women. Madeline Osburn – “as the rules are finalized, the return of campus kangaroo courts is likely to be overshadowed by the current culture war spotlight on
women’s sports.”

Joe Biden Responds to Sacramento Shooting by Pushing Existing California Gun Controls. AWR Hawkins – “California already bans ghost guns … has required background checks for all gun sales since the 1990s … has banned “assault weapons” since the 1990s … bans “high capacity” magazines … Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is pushing to allow private citizens to sue gun makers … Additionally, California has a red flag law, gun registration requirements, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, a ban on campus carry for self-defense, a ban on teachers carrying on K-12 campuses for classroom defense, and a limit on the number of guns law-abiding citizens can buy each month.”

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson rejects America’s very foundation. Andrea Widburg – “the fundamental premise underlying America’s entire constitutional political system: All people have inherent rights upon which government cannot infringe.” – “For a judge to deny these unalienable, inherent rights should instantly disqualify him or her from sitting on a federal bench, especially the Supreme Court. Yet deny those rights is exactly what Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson did.”

Western Suicide. S.R. Piccoli – “western civilization is not even close to what its detractors think it is, namely some narrow,
small-minded thing called western. It is instead “an inheritance, constantly expanding, constantly including new things. It is something which has given us the knowledge of the human heart, which
has enabled us to produce not just wonderful economies and the wonderful ways of living in the world that are ours, but also the great works of art, the religions, the systems of law and government, all the other things which make it actually possible for us to recognize that we live in this world, insofar as possible, successfully.” – What you need to do, Sir Roger concluded, “is engage in dialogue, which is what civilization is about.”

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.”

Suppression of data, cancellation, deceit, and distortion

Congressional propaganda machines – data supression – the American gulag – the takeover of the law schools – conspirators – consequences – whither formal worship? – expediency in dire consequences: is the higher goal being served?

Jan. 6 Committee Will Hire a Writer to Create a ‘Compelling Narrative’. Rick Moran — “They are beginning to prepare a multimedia presentation that will be available online when their final report is released (probably about six weeks out from the midterms).”

Will they differentiate between the legal efforts to challenge the electoral vote count and the illegal efforts to overturn the decision of the voters? Will they paint the peaceably assembled demonstrators who came to the Capitol ellipse to hear Donald Trump and other speakers as insurrectionists? Trying to lump the more than 50,000 Americans who came to listen to Trump in with a couple of hundred rioters who broke into the Capitol is false, misleading propaganda.

One thing that’s certain about this production: it will only tell one side of the story. And the evidence and images will be manipulated with no “minority report” to push back on it.

Free Speech, Ours and Theirs John Hinderaker — “The New York Times Editorial Board published a long essay on free speech on Friday, titled “America Has a Free Speech Problem.” – “while decrying cancel culture, the Times can see some merit in conservatives losing their jobs” – “Given the almost daily horror stories of conservatives being silenced, deplatformed, libeled and fired, you may wonder how the Times can possibly think that the main threat to free speech comes from the right.”

The Takeover of America’s Legal System. Aaron Sibarium — “The kids didn’t grow out of it.” – “This has all come as a shock to many law professors, who had long assumed that law schools wouldn’t cave to the new orthodoxy.” – “As the new ideology has been institutionalized, the costs of disobeying it have grown steeper, both for faculty and for students.”

Instapundit — “big firms were bullied into dropping Trump as a client, none of them appear to be offering pro bono representation to the January 6 defendants, and now we see this: Harvard, Yale, And Stanford Law Students And Faculty Pressure U.S. Law Firms To Cut Ties With Russian Clients. – So given that lawyers apparently are morally responsible for their choice of clients, I think it’s fair to criticize Ketanji Brown Jackson for representating accused terrorists.”

He’s Facing 20 Years For January 6 Charges. His Lawyers Say He Just Went To Protest. Gabe Kaminsky — “Knowlton has also faced repercussions outside of the legal system.”

If you think the government’s version of CV-19 data and research was bad, you should look at climate change research.Conspirators in Their Own Words. Victor Davis Hanson — “Noble left-wing ends always justify odious means, in this case projecting one’s own conspiracist efforts by smearing innocent others as conspiracists.”

Democrats Learn What Consequences Are During Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Confirmation Hearing. Bonchie — “it’s been less than four years since one of the most disturbing, disgusting congressional and media spectacles in US history: The Brett Kavanaugh hearings.” – “For Durbin and his cohorts to demand civility from the GOP after their past behavior is not only laughable, but it’s insulting.”

Dick Durbin blocks documents showing Ketanji Brown Jackson’s judicial record. Monica Showalter — “Which signals that there is something they are trying to hide.” – “The Senate hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination are not going well.” 

The Scandal at Christianity Today. George Neumayr — “The publication says that Mark Galli, its former editor who called for Trump’s removal from office, has a long record of sexual harassment.” – “Call it the Trump curse. Scandals seem to befall his most moralistic critics”

Why Americans Are Really Leaving Church. Casey Chalk — “The answer, contra Broome, is not to dig in our heels and assert our independence in the face of our brokenness. We must look for a healer who knows and can redeem our plight. He awaits us in a transformative encounter within the walls of churches across our nation.”

Ukraine’s War Highlights Again That Men And Women Are Different, And We Need Them That Way. Elaine Donnelly — “Doctrinaire egalitarians do not understand or appreciate complementary differences between men and women.”

The Lincolnian Zelensky? Scott Johnson — “I don’t proclaim that Zelensky’s actions are necessarily justified or taken in good faith. They may mark him as a tyrant. I don’t know. I only know that Ukraine is in a fight for its life and that necessity may have some bearing on Zelensky’s actions” – “My point, and I do have one, is that Zelensky’s exercise of executive power under the dire circumstances that he and his countrymen face may be justly supported by the claim of necessity.”

John Bolton Inadvertently Reminds Us Why We Need Trump. J. Allen Cartwright — “At the outset of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, establishment Republicans seized the opportunity to score political points by placing the blame for Putin’s aggression squarely upon the shoulders of their primary political rival: former president Donald Trump.”

The Medical Establishment’s Willful Blindness About Vaccines and Children. Ted Noel — “When the facts are on the table, we find that the CDC is lying. … We know those are lies, but the demonic chorus is real.” – “The real issue here is called the risk/benefit ratio.”

CDC Tells New York Times It Hid Covid Data For Political Reasons. David Gortler — “Selectively cherry-picking ‘The Science’ to suit a political narrative is not ‘Following the Science.’ It is malpractice and fraud.” – “The day of reckoning for endangering American lives needs to come, and the sooner the better.”

Some Climate Change Observations. Kevin Roche — “If you think the government’s version of CV-19 data and research was bad, you should look at climate change research.”

Freed At Last. Paul F. Petrick — “Rock and roll’s official coming out party on March 21, 1952 at Cleveland Arena ended during the first set. ”

How can so many be so obviously deluded?

Russia obsession morphed into TDS and the defensive shell became hardened to briittleness. The truth is coming through the cracks and spoiling the contents. Here are observations of behavior that show what happens.

SpyGate 101: A Primer On The Russia Collusion Hoax’s Years-long Plot To Take Down Trump. Margot Cleveland — “For those who care about our country’s future but don’t want to be buried in the minutia of the Russia collusion hoax scandal, here is your big-picture primer.”

Look How Media Propagandists Covered The Trump-Russia Hoax Vs. The Bombshell Biden Laptop Scandal. Jordan Boyd — “It’s worth contrasting how so-called journalists covered Biden family corruption versus real disinformation.”

How Dem officials, the media and Big Tech worked in concert to bury the Hunter Biden story. Kyle Smith — “The Times and other major papers simply ignored the substance of The Post’s scoop, and now their readers know, or rather have just been re-re-re-reminded, that they’re Democratic Party cheerleaders who even allow presidential candidates to dictate details of how they get covered. – The next time they “fact check,” the next time they cry wolf, who will believe them?”

The Post computes this, take 2. Scott Johnson — “The Post editorial reports the results of the paper’s efforts to obtain comments from the 51 “intelligence” experts. Here are the reported results:”

Democrats Admit Jan. 6 Committee Is All About Midterms. Tristan Justice — “Democrats running the Jan. 6 Committee finally admitted the obvious: it’s a show trial all about the midterms.”

Moderate Dem quits Congress in disgust, denouncing ‘rainbows and unicorns’. Monica Showalter — “With the Squad, the greenie lobby, the teachers’ unions, and the open borders industrial complex calling the shots in the Democratic Party these days, it’s obviously no picnic to be a moderate member of the Democrats in Congress.”

The Rise of Victimhood Culture. Rajan Laad — “If there is any consistent feature among contemporary liberals, it is their relentless virtue-signaling and symbolic displays of compassion.”

 

Why Are Liberals So Psychologically Needy and Inauthentic? Steven Hayward — “There is a strange pattern among liberals: over and over again they seem compelled for some reason to embellish their personal stories with exaggerations and falsehoods, apparently in an effort to make themselves seem more authentic.” – “maybe people who embrace the creed that truth is relative, and that the world can be bent endlessly to our own good will and idealism, who think the most important thing is “the narrative,” don’t think it’s a big deal to make stuff up in service of their cause.”

Another cop-killer fêted and fawned over. Stu Tarlowe — “If you’re surprised, shocked, or even outraged that a convicted cop-killer would be invited to be the guest speaker at an institute of higher learning, you may feel those emotions even more strongly when you learned that these invitations are hardly unprecedented.”

Europe’s Green Energy Policies Bought Russia’s War Machine. Michael Fumento — “Merkel & Co. really painted themselves into a corner by rejecting nuclear energy and relying on Russian fossil fuels.”

Remorse and despair are easy to find right now

A catalog of sins and despair – just who’s your hero? Or, maybe, just how do you measure heroic?

Americans are no longer a serious people or culture. Glenn K. Beaton — “I love my country. But I have a problem with the current occupants. Americans are fat, fatuous, failing and flailing. Let’s look at some evidence.” – “We’re no longer a serious people or a serious culture. For that, we and the world are the poorer and the likes of Vladimir Putin are the richer.”

The Honor Deficit, James Hankins — “When a society offers people an avenue to distinguish themselves through merit, very soon it starts to produce meritorious people. What a surprise.”

The narrative: a square peg being forced into a round hole

Gramsci et al speak through the rabbi – snitches should stay in the middle school – the wisdom of Petunia by Roger Duvosin – parents matter- the media and the narrative, tactics and gaslighting – who’s your bully?

The Wrecking Ball of American Cultural Marxism. Howard Sachs — “This week, in my neighborhood, a non-orthodox rabbi and cantor sanctified in a religious ceremony the declaration of a person to be non-binary, sexless, neither male nor female.” – “This new attack on America is not cute. It’s not progressive. In essence, it’s actually cruel.  It’s a regressive return to a pre-Biblical, pre-Enlightenment, prescientific worldview, a view spoken about in the opening chapters of the Bible. It is a return to the world of darkness and chaos before God in his love brought light and order to the universe.”

Insane: A School District Spied on Parents and Reported Social Media Activity to Their Employers. Matt Vespa — “Who the hell are these people? Where do they get the stones to do something like this?”

Make children’s books great again. Nancy Andersen — “The debate over books in public-school libraries has become a political battleground.  In progressive counties, school boards use this debate to intimidate parents.” – “It isn’t enough to carry books around, to posture pretentiously about social justice causes in front of cameras.  Dangerous unanticipated events have resulted and will result that scar society.” – “Only if we return books centered in morality, humility, and creativity to our most innocent will we overcome the critical theory movement.”

Parents matter. Don Surber — “Picked to deliver the Republican response to Biden’s bewildering State of the Union address, Reynolds gave her party and her country direction when she said, “Republicans believe that parents matter.” – This was the main theme of her rebuttal.” – “she provided frustrated and ignored Americans with a rally cry.”

How CNN Twists the Racial Narrative. Alexander Riley — “Could it be any clearer that the mainstream media actively wants to divide the country and make us hate one another?” – “If you want to believe that headline, don’t watch the video.” – “if, when more facts come in, and the narrative presented by CNN turns out looking more questionable than it already does after an objective look at the video, there will be no correction of the record.  They will just rely on the public to forget the case and then eagerly move on to the next thing they can bend and twist to fit the narrative.”

The great weasel-word gaslight: The Jan. 6 commission finds nothing on Trump. Monica Showalter — “Liz Cheney’s Jan. 6 commission is starting to look stupid.” – “despite their burning hate for President Trump and their dogged effort to pin something, anything, on Trump, they are failing miserably at this task, because there’s no there there.  These people will twist any fact they can, yet they still couldn’t pin what they wanted on Trump even as the Times tries to cover for them, and with its many “suggestions” that they have something when really, they don’t.  That’s gaslighting, and it’s getting very gassy indeed.”

DeSantis Finishes off Mask Controversy With Boom He Drops on the Real Bullies. Nick Arama

The Biden Inflation Octopus. Victor Davis Hanson — “the Biden Administration is in such denial of inflation that it sounds to Americans simply callous and indifferent to the misery it has unleashed.” – :Unlike now-unpopular critical race theory, it cannot be avoided for a day. You cannot tune it out like one does the mess in Afghanistan or the now nonexistent southern border. Inflation attacks everyone in 24/7, 360-degree fashion.”

It’s Time To Kill This Big Fat Biden Lie Once And For All. I & I Editorial Board — “If Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the Big Tech bullies insist on stopping “misinformation,” why aren’t they censoring President Joe Biden for his repeated flagrant lie about the economy?” – “The country was not in an economic crisis, or a crisis of any kind, when Biden took office. – It is a crisis now, however, thanks to what Biden has done since taking office.- Here are the facts.”

Ukraine Shows The World Why Gun Rights Are Human Rights. Cody Wisniewski — “The people of Ukraine have a chance because they are armed. Imagine if they had been training with these weapons their whole lives.”

Exceptionalism and reality

amulets and talismen – who gave us the right? – anyone can be a victim – Trump was right, as usual – energy is key – facts don’t seem to matter much for many.

America is The Exception—And We Better Make Sure It Stays That Way. Jeff M. Lewis — “Even a passing glance at what the “free countries” of the world have done in response to the COVID-19 pandemic should be cause for concern.” – “It is time for every American to understand clearly that our Constitution was inspired, designed, and written to prevent this type of police state response.” – “There is no place in the world like the United States, where you are born with your rights and the government is prevented from infringing upon them”

How the truckers split indigenous Canada. Ashley Frawley — “We are fed up with being viewed as virtuous victims” – “if the recent Freedom Convoy revealed anything, it was that deep rifts do exist in Canada — and they could soon boil over.” – “no matter how hard policymakers and even indigenous leaders try to convince us otherwise, the issues faced by indigenous people are not so different from those faced by people around the world.”

President Trump in 2018 called out the factors that led Putin to invade Ukraine. Rajan Laad — “Trump observed that decades of cowardice in challenging the status quo and probably self-interest have prevented past US Presidents from addressing and dealing with the stark disparity in contributions to NATO. … pointed out that Germany shut down their coal plants and then struck multi-billion-dollar pipeline deals with Russia, making it dependent for its energy on Russia … showed how clearly he understood the functioning of global organizations such as NATO and the EU” – “George Orwell observed that in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. … President Trump was the only one who understood the façade of these pompous but pointless global organizations had the guts to plainly state the obvious that the Emperor had no clothes on”

Standing Up To Putin Means Ditching Net-Zero. Rupert Darwall via RealClearEnergy.org — “The dilemma for the West: you can’t win a geopolitical conflict lasting years or decades with an economy powered intermittently by wind turbines and solar panels.

Psaki’s ‘West Wing’ White House. Post Editorial Board — “This explains so much. After all, the show pioneered Psaki’s own style of communicating. I.e., speaking to anyone who questions the liberal orthodoxy of the moment as if they were fools or traitors.” – “This is hilarious as fiction. But when it becomes fact — especially as we face the most serious aggression against the West in a generation — it’s simply terrifying.”

Psycho-socio affection for masks. Geoffrey P. Hunt — “Bill Maher … In commenting on the pathology of mask wearers, and usefulness of masks per se, he says a mask is merely an “amulet.” – “A mask also operates as a talisman, conveying some special powers, enhanced by the mystery of how the spirit occupies the soul behind the mask.” – “Mask wearing has always been comic, farcical, dark, and teasing sexual theater. Yet for many, imprisoned by the age of anxiety, mask wearing is an obsession designed to conceal a body dysmorphic disorder accompanied by diffidence requiring a screen to provide safe space and refuge from imagined uncomfortable judgments and rejections based solely on cosmetics” — “The Enlightenment from Bacon to Kant to Newton to Harvey ushered in the era of logic, reasoning, mathematics, physics, human anatomy and the philosophy of science.  Coerced and mandated, CCP Covid mask wearing has abandoned all of that, forsaken truth, and sadly, trivialized beauty, and brutalized whimsy.”

The COVID narrative continues, regardless of facts. Terry Paulding — “we are becoming a dumber, less questioning, more complacent, and lazy society” – “In order to have a thriving society, we need to stop this idiocracy in its tracks. If we don’t have a solid, proof-positive foundation upon which to build consensus — if, instead, we have proof that we’re being fed lies — then there can be no trust in those “in authority.” Without that trust, there is basically no authority, only vacuous, malevolent despotism, and an increasingly angry populace.”

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.”

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?”

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.”

The great con – have you been had?

Promises for education versus reality; not discussable; ideas that cannot be examined; derangement in psychotic self defense; deceipt distortion, and the coverup of sanity.

The Great College Education Con. August Harriman — “As far back as the 1800s, when college was reserved for the elite, there were those, including Mark Twain, who had their doubts as to its usefulness.” .. “These days, most don’t go to college to learn.  What is learned is of little value, and even that is not retained.  One goes to college for advancement, for the credential.”

The Murdering Of Free Speech In America. I & I Editorial Board — “President Joe Biden, whose growing unpopularity is well-deserved, continued to carry on last week what has become a Democratic tradition: He asked the private sector to become partners in censorship with the federal government” - Adds Turley: “The public is now required to discuss public controversies within the lines and limits set by corporate censors – with the guidance of the government.” – “That’s the “democracy” the Democrats keep talking about saving in the next election. They crave it so intensely they’re willing to kill freedom of speech in exchange for a throne.”

Trump Derangement Is a ‘National Emergency’. Will Alexander — “For the tens of millions who voted for Trump, the election was never really about Trump.  It was about the fires.  The issues.” – “the same orthodox politicians who squirmed inside political straightjackets while watching fires burn the country to the ground unleashed boundless energy doing unorthodox, abnormal things – not to improve the country – but to “get Trump.” – “People so deranged should be nowhere near the corridors of power.”

Elon Musk Had the Pandemic Right From the Beginning. Jon Miltimore — “The only question is, why didn’t public officials listen to Elon Musk two years ago?”

The left politicized COVID from the start. Victor Davis Hanson — “The rhetoric of the media-progressive nexus that mandatory, massive lockdowns were necessary all but destroyed a booming Trump economy and denied critical medical care to millions. Emphasizing therapeutics, natural herd immunity and the resilience of the youth to the disease were all pronounced “anti-science” by the demagogues on the left.” – “Politicizing the pandemic is a euphemism. In truth, thousands of Americans have died needlessly because of weaponized disinformation about China’s culpability, vaccines, useful drugs, lockdowns, racial preferences and long-term-care facilities.”

15 Worst Covid Lies That Have Been Completely Exposed for All the World to See. Kyle Becker — “Big Pharma, tech giants, the mainstream media, “fact checkers,” and public health officials have told innumerable lies during the Covid pandemic.” – “Even more nefariously, this shadow cabal has insisted that anyone who questioned its narratives were guilty of ‘wrong think’ at best; spreading ‘disinformation’ at worst.”

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.”

Upsy Daisy – It’s a wild ride it is

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From MLK to Ray Epps with a stop for Fauci

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rollout Of The COVID Antivirals: Clown Show #2. Josh Bloom — “Finally, there are antiviral drugs that will keep people with COVID out of the hospital (and the morgue).
