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.”

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

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

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

From MLK to Ray Epps with a stop for Fauci

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The utility of the lie in creating a false reality

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The blindness is willful?

The J6  abuse continues – some are climbing mountains to get above the clouds and see the horizon, there are consequences for those in Plato’s cave.

D.C. Jail Cuts J6 Prisoners’ Communications After Newsmax Interview. Megan Fox — “Regardless of what crimes these people are charged with, there is a protocol for how prisoners are supposed to be treated, especially pre-trial detainees who have the presumption of innocence. None of that seems to have been followed in the cases involving the J6 arrestees.”

Everything Is Clear From Up Here – The Good Citizen. Vanderleun — “hey will still be fast asleep when the first oligarchs and western health technocrats are strung up for crimes against humanity. They will scream in horror and disbelief as the first necks are snapped with elegant Steinway piano wire”

You will come to realize that if the last two years can be planned, engineered, and carried out with no consequences and such utter disdain for humanity, there is nothing they won’t do to terrorize or kill innocent people for their ends. You will see there are no sciences uncorrupted, no academics who can’t be bought, no doctors who wouldn’t mechanically suffocate your grandmother after destroying her kidneys for a chance to increase their salary and keep their license. No corporate entity or government agency that wouldn’t lie, cheat, steal, gaslight to keep the truth from you, and you from the truth. You will see that liberty is not an assumption, it cannot be assumed anywhere on earth if not fought for constantly, while its gates can never be unguarded ever again. You will see that if you want any semblance of liberty again you will have to depend only on yourself, and trust none of those you once trusted who have not made it to the mountain top yet, who cannot yet see all that you see with perfect fearless clarity. In this profound realization, you will feel alone, but you must know that you are not.

The Cruise Ship Industry Learns a Valuable Lesson After Bowing to Joe Biden. Bonchie  — “The cruise ship industry has been hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, much of their pain and suffering has been self-inflicted, driven by their mindless following of pointless federal dictates.” … “when Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida stood up to fight against such measures, the cruise ship companies not only spit in his face, they actively opposed him in court. Instead of following the data, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and others bent the knee to Joe Biden, even when they weren’t legally required to. – Well, they are about to get a hard lesson in why that was a big mistake.”

A failure of grace. Never in history.

VDH describes ‘so little gratitude’. Christian food provisions illustrate the point. The Quadrant has a history lesson. Bureaucracy ruins a doctor’s career. Insanity runs rampant as consequences keep showing their face.

The Ungracious—and Their Demonization of the Past. Victor Davis Hanson — “Never in history has such a mediocre, but self-important and ungracious generation owed so much, and yet expressed so little gratitude to its now dead forebears. … there are lots of logical flaws in attacking prior generations in U.S. history.”

After Spokane Food Program Officials Turn Away Unvaccinated for Christmas Meals – Patriots Step In and Feed Everyone. Eric Thompson — “Dan Bell, who helped organize a food drive and feed the homeless, said he was surprised to see that a Catholic church was involved in turning away the hungry. “As a Christian, if you’re following the teachings of Jesus, you feed the hungry, right? You feed all hungry.”

The Prophetic Shadow of Rome’s Ruin. Mervyn Bendle — “what must be driven home is how precious and vulnerable Civilisation is, and how easily it can be destroyed if its leaders lack resolve and competence and the people prove unable or unwilling to protect a way of life they have been allowed to take for granted.”

God and Ego: Trump vs. Obama. Selwyn Duke — “A “great man knows he is not God,” observed the great and greater G.K. Chesterton — “and the greater he is the better he knows it.”

Do Democrats Want to Build Back Better, or Do They Want a Coup? E. Jeffrey Ludwig — “Through a number of pressure points, the left is trying to overwhelm and subvert constitutional checks and balances, basic ideas of fairness, historical understandings of things like voter rights and equality of opportunity (which is not and should never be equality of outcomes), law and order, the public weal in protecting against theft and bodily harm, and responsible conduct as the sign of a good citizen.”

Kim Potter Conviction: A Blatant Miscarriage of Justice. Andrew Branca — “Prosecution never showed evidence of recklessness and deliberately misled the jury on the law.”

How telemedicine ruined a physician’s career — a personal story bringing to mind Don Quixote

Liberal Judge Rules Ousting Illegal Aliens Who Reenter the Country ‘Racist’ and ‘Unconstitutional’. Mike Miller — “according to The Times, federal courts are facing the ridiculous question of whether the “imbalance” in deportations means U.S. immigration law is… wait for it… racist.”

Renewables’ Reckoning Is Long Overdue. Bob Maistros — “Unfortunately, this correspondent begs to differ. Cratering rationales won’t produce the end of climate hysteria nor renewables, much less a reckoning. … Discredited climate hysteria and renewables are here to stay. Reckonings, not so much.”

Conspiracy theories are maybe something solid

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not looking good. Change is needed. Somehow

It’s a scam cancer: the media, the law, medicine, resource management … and wondering where  it will lead but seeing nothing good when looking ahead.

From Media Bias To Outright Partisanship. John Hinderaker — “two stories illustrate how we have gone from liberal media bias in the early years of the 21st century to the open warfare on conservatism that we see today.”

The Rule of Law Has Been Replaced by One Set of Rules for the Left and Another for the Right. streiff  — “This is not right. This is not a sustainable system in any society.”

A game of three-judge-panels is no route to actual justice. Paul C. Binotto — “it’s perhaps not too outrageous to say the federal judiciary has become politically predictable.” … “This hyper-litigated method of governance, where every degree of controversy must necessarily run up to SCOTUS for final resolution is not good for the courts, and it’s a losing game for the Republic.”

The Soviet-style conditions in which January 6 arrestees molder. Andrea Widburg — “Every totalitarian regime has foul prisons in which they confine people who dared to oppose the regime.  Sadly, in the Age of Biden, it turns out that America is not at all different.” … “If we have the political class we deserve, America is a dead country walking.”

Who’s a vigilante anyway? Roger Kimball — “A Washington Post writer thinks that, circa 2021, we do not have enough government in our lives” … “In Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville warned against the advent of “democratic despotism,” which would extinguish liberty not by tyrannizing over men but by infantilizing them.”

We Need a Political Climate Change. Clarice Feldman — “Once again, the crazy greens overrode public needs, along with the bureaucrats of the Biden administration.”

Our political divide is no longer between Democrats and Republicans. Shari Forst — “The general public can boycott certain businesses but, whether the Marxists or conservatives do that, it doesn’t work. Why? Because deep down we want what we want.” … “What they need to learn is that there are no longer Democrats and Republicans in America. Instead, there are vicious Marxist anarchists and the rest of us.”

The COVID Scam: The Progressive Path to Power, and Tyranny. J. Deane  Waldman, M.D. — “Physicians who still practice medicine cannot afford to write or say the following for fear of being canceled.  As a retired physician, I cannot be coerced to keep silent with threats to my medical license or hospital privileges.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This whole thing is just wrong.

Note a free course at Hillsdale Collge: The decline of American citizenship

The class describes the origins and history of citizenship in the West, reminding us that it is a rare phenomenon both in the past and the present—given the enormous responsibility placed on citizens to create and control their own government.

Citizenship then requires a large and self-reliant middle class—currently shrinking under enormous economic strains. Clearly defined and enforced borders are also essential to ensure a civic space in which citizens can nurture common customs, sustain traditions, and honor their own shared past.

Yet borders are now increasingly fluid as mere residence and citizenship seem often indistinguishable. Pre-civilizational tribalism—identifying by superficial appearance rather than through shared culture and values—is returning to America as so often the salad bowl replaces the melting pot.

These organic, bottom-up challenges are often matched by top-down stresses such as the growth of a huge permanent, but unelected, government of bureaucrats and administrators who combine judicial, executive, and legislative powers that overwhelm the citizen.

In addition, revisionists in law, the media, and politics seek to change the Constitution, long-held customs of governance, and political traditions for short-term partisan agendas, on the theory that a new changing and fluid Constitution must match an always evolving human nature.

Globalism is an ancient challenge to the sovereignty of the nation-state. But in the age of instant communications and unprecedented concentrations of globalized wealth, so often elites seek to supplant American laws and independence with international organizations and often without the consent of the legislative branch or the assent of the governed.

The course ends, however, on an optimistic note that citizens still have it within their power to restore our traditions of empowered citizenship and return government to the control of citizens.

“American Citizenship and Its Decline” is free to enroll in, and you can begin the course today by clicking on the secure link.

Best wishes, Victor Davis Hanson. Wayne & Marcia Buske Distinguished Fellow in History. Hillsdale College

‘Capitol Punishment’ The Movie. Jennifer Oliver O’Connell  — “This important documentary delves into the events of January 6, 2021—not the events that have been regurgitated ad infinitum by the legacy media, but the actual facts on the ground and how the people on the ground have been affected. The millions who showed up peacefully, and left the same way. The singing and the prayers. The different races, cultures, and religious backgrounds coming together with a unified purpose—not to overthrow the government, but to let the government know that they answer to We The People.”

A look back: on desperately wanting to elect Joe Biden. neo — “the idea of a figurehead president was fully envisioned and fully accepted, right around the time that Biden was finally seeming to be the nomination frontrunner. Nothing more was necessary; certainly not that certain something known as “leadership.” It was okay that Biden do nothing and be unable to do anything competently. The idea was apparently that (a) getting rid of Trump at the helm would magically solve all problems; and (b) the country could just about run itself after that, as long as Democrats were in control. — That’s not just hubris, that’s hubris squared.”

Conservatives: You also have FIRST Amendment right not to testify! Seth Grossman — “We also have rights to seek out others, and communicate, associate, and organize with them to promote our ideas.  Those rights are infringed if the government forces us to disclose who they are, or our private conversations and communications with them.  This is especially true when we and our ideas are routinely distorted and demonized by an evil and biased media.”

The Big Lie that Republicans threaten democracy. David Zukerman — “Republicans, nay the American people, should have learned by now: where the Democrats prevail, free speech, dissent, the essentials of liberty, dies.”

The left’s resistance to Ivermectin is shameful. Andrea Widburg — “One of the main barriers to Ivermectin is that hospitals refuse to give it to patients, preferring to see them die rather than take a commonly used, safe, Nobel-prize winning drug that could save their lives.”

Yellow rain

Another week starts at the American Thinker. Here’s a sample:

They Hate Us, They Really Hate Us. Clarice Feldman — “I recognize that we all make mistakes now and then, but the story Smollett peddled was so preposterous, only a moron could credibly claim he believed it.” … “Here are some of their statements when the preposterous tale was spun. Read this and tell me I’m wrong.”

Don’t gaslight me on my leg and tell me it’s raining. Bill Hansmann — “unless those lies are uttered under oath or spoken as truth to federal law enforcement agencies, there is no penalty for intentionally misleading the American public.” … “While gaslighting fittingly defines what is happening in our fallacious media and the utterances of a high percentage of Democrat politicians, there is an old expression that sums it up even better: “Don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining.”  Perhaps their obsession with the nonsense of climate change has made the left unable to recognize the color of the precipitation, but you won’t fool me with yellow rain.”

Decades of Communist Pushing Will Get You a Communist America. E. Jeffrey Ludwig — “What today’s political pundits are calling woke (or some form of communism) has been on the march for decades.  It was alive and well in the late 1990s and had already been in place for decades.  It has gone mainstream in recent years and openly is embraced by many who were more careful not to be seen as sympathetic to Marxist ideology.  It is anti-God at its core, and it clearly wants government to take over the means of production.  The radical hope is to dignify the move toward undermining our republic, natural rights, private property, and the family by painting the words “anti-racism” and “gender equality” on the hammer and sickle.  Then talk about electric cars and reducing carbon footprints, and hope the fear generated will change our society forever.”

Democrats are terrified that ordinary Americans are calling them out. Andrea Widburg — “democracy in America is over because Americans don’t believe that Biden honestly won his seat in the White House.  The hyperbole was thick in the air, along with more than a soupçon of hypocrisy and a huge dollop of fear.”

Here’s a few other comments of note.

Do you approve of Joe Biden? Save America JFC — this is at a tech news site but the problem of civil rights of the accused is hard to find even in the comments. Ignorance and denial of the actual events of January 6 is also rampant.

What We Should Have Learned From this Epidemic, but Probably Won’t. Kevin Roche — “After any great event in human history, we should attempt to step back and evaluate what the dimensions of the problem actually were and how effective our responses were, always mindful of human thinking process biases.” … “I also am keenly aware of human limitations and our clear inability to learn from the past when it comes to large-scale problems and issues, so I have no hope that the next epidemic will be handled better.  Politicians will make the same stupid mistakes, think they need to assert their power and do something, anything, no matter what the consequences, and will ignore the damage their actions will cause.”

The cancer is metastasizing

California Needs To Stop Its Crime Spree Before It Goes National. I & I Editorial Board — “San Francisco and Los Angeles voters might not know it, but saving the country from the run of crime that’s ruining their neighborhoods is in their hands. If they do their jobs, they will send a message to the voters elsewhere who are enduring the Soros district attorneys’ social experiments: Throw the bums out.”

San Francisco restaurant that ordered cops out is poster child for the local wokester idiocy. Monica Showalter’

Our Under-Incarceration Problem, Beverly Hills Edition. Paul Mirengoff — “wealthy liberals in places like Pacific Heights, Pebble Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, and Beverly Hills are no longer safe in their mansions, even with private security. The Avants had private security, and guards were present when Maynor killed Jacqueline.”

Misremembering Pearl Harbor. Victor Davis Hanson — “The tactically brilliant but strategically crazy attack on Pearl Harbor unleashed incalculable furor against a once sophisticated Japanese empire, which foolishly attacked the United States at peace.”

Holy Koolaid Ruins Christmas. Erik Manning – “In his video 12 Contradictions in the Bible, Holy Kool-Aid includes the standard list of complaints against the Christmas narratives. Leave it to the skeptics to try and stuff a lump of coal in the stockings of Christians every year.”

Thomas Massie’s Gun-Filled Christmas Photo Brings out the Left’s Biblical Scholars Who Clearly Know Nothing About Christ. Brandon Morse

Spot the anti-Americans… Jack Hellner — “I can’t think of anything less American than being dependent on foreign enemies for oil … less American than killing black and brown babies at a rate much higher than their rate in the population. … leaving Americans to die in Benghazi and Afghanistan … lockdowns, mandates, and moving toward socialism … nominating someone who believes that all bank accounts should be federalized … ”

Let’s Build a National White Trash Museum. Not. Christopher Chantrill — “I don’t know about you, but an America featuring dueling victim museums on the Washington Mall is not the America that I love. Not at all.”

A President Betrayed by Bureaucrats: Scott Atlas’s Masterpiece on the COVID Disaster. Jeffrey A. Tucker — “Atlas’s book has exposed a scandal for the ages. It is enormously valuable because it fully blows up what seems to be an emerging fake story involving a supposedly Covid-denying president who did nothing vs. heroic scientists in the White House who urged compulsory mitigating measures consistent with prevailing scientific opinion. Not one word of that is true.”

On The Eastman Subpoena.  Scott Johnson — “A rule that allows Congress unfettered access to the emails, text messages, and geolocation information of protest organizers will serve none of us well in the long run. [Elizabeth Goitein]”

 GOP’s Fortenberry Targeted In Yet Another Questionable And Politicized Case From Troubled Department Of Justice. Mollie Hemingway — “No major reforms have taken place at the Department of Justice or FBI even as its politicized bungling of prosecutions and investigations has made major news.” … “The extent of the corruption is shocking,” Stevens’ attorney Brendan Sullivan said at the time. “It’s the worst misconduct we’ve seen in a generation by prosecutors at the Department of Justice.”

Former D.C. National Guard official says generals lied to Congress about Jan. 6. Sophie Mann — “Col. Earl Matthews calls military leaders “absolute liars” over their accounts of riot.”

“I Think We Have To Move On” John Hinderaker — “During the 2020 campaign, Jen Psaki tried to sell the ridiculous claim that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation,” while Hunter himself never denied the authenticity of the laptop or the materials it contained. It helps when you control a once free and diverse press.”

The Gateway Pundit and American Gulag Donate $40,000 to Persecuted Jan. 6 Families This Christmas. Jim Hoft — “In September The Gateway Pundit announced the launch of www.AmericanGULAG.org, an informational site about the more than six hundred and thirty (630) people Joe Biden continues to imprison and persecute, largely for entering a public building on January 6, 2021. ”

America’s ‘Racial Justice’ Profiteer: Benjamin Crump. Frank Bergman — “Today our behavior, our mindset, and our people are the greatest draw for immigrants from all over the planet. Shamefully, racial justice profiteers in our midst threaten the very justice, truth, and healing that America represents.”

The End Of The Apartheid Alibi. Glen Reynolds — “You’d think that Zimbabwe would have been a cautionary example for South Africa, but it seems to have been more of a how-to guide. And hey, the political insiders got rich.”

The Problem Is The Ideology: Progressive Dreams Lead To Chaos. Ron Nutter — “Loury quotes Steele to the effect that “the problem before [blacks in America] now is not a problem of oppression. It is a problem of freedom. It is a problem of seizing opportunity, the problem of taking responsibility.” … “What is needed today is an appreciation for common sense, for our common history, and a recognition of the tried-and-true experiences of citizens that have been reified in institutions that have, for centuries, done well by us.”

Court on a Hot Tin Roof: Airing Out “the Stench” from the Oral Argument Over Abortion. J. Turley — “In Wednesday’s Supreme Court oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Justice Sonya Sotomayor got a whiff of something she did not like.” … “But Roe should stand or fall on constitutional merits — not on feigned outrage over changing constitutional precedent.”

Demonizing Kyle Rittenhouse. Janet Levy — “The Left is trying to build a new, extrajudicial narrative around Rittenhouse’s acquittal” … “Absent in such depictions is any concession to the idea of safe, responsible gun ownership, and of communities where young people grow up around firearms, learning to hunt, engaging in target practice, and imbibing values of good citizenship and patriotism.” 

Boys Replacing Girls in Sports – Feminists Yawn. Brian C. Joondeph — “If biologic men can compete as women, it makes women’s sports irrelevant. Why bother with the pretense anymore, just make it a free-for-all, where anyone can compete with anyone, regardless of biologic sex, weight class, or any other physical parameter than confers advantage to some. All in the name of equity.”

a brief reminder: health agencies were not always deranged. el gato malo — “a trip down memory lane” … “this has NOT been “following the science” is has been the abrogation of a century of evidence based epidemiology and social mores in order to take a devastating and self-serving joy ride with the world’s populace like it was some sort of video game.”

Unlike pagans of old, today’s climate activists will kill crop yields. Jerold Levoritz — “Long ago, elites in various cultures sacrificed fellow citizens, including children, to their presumed gods to improve crop outcomes for the next growing season.  Woke anthropologists might call these the first documented examples of cancel culture.”

Dr. Ben Carson nails it on the suppression of existing therapies for COVID: ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Thomas Lifson — “The medical establishment and the panic merchants in government, the media, and the tech sector, including social media, refuse to acknowledge the remedies at hand and instead push universal vaccination and expensive patented therapies.”

Somebody shouldn’t have trusted the science. Ace of Spades on the latest academic journal hoax.

How they do it.

What Are They Teaching Our Children? John Hinderaker — “Many people are reluctant to believe that the public schools could possibly be as bad as they are being portrayed.” … “How much worse will they become if liberals get their way? Can it possibly be true that liberals want to turn our schools into cesspits of racism and anti-Americanism? Yes, it is all too true.” … “The Left’s poisonous hostility toward the United States is the dominant feature of these proposed standards, and is the essence–the whole point–of Critical Race Theory. And don’t assume that initiatives like these are occurring only in liberal states.”

Ninth Circuit Ignored the Heller Ruling In Order to Uphold California’s ‘High Capacity’ Magazine Ban. TTAG Contributor — “The Ninth Circuit ignores historical context, and cherry-picks language and clings to alternatives to “allow” gun owners to possess restricted magazines and continues to use an interest-weighing test rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller.” … “Aside from the egregiously wrong notion that the government “allows” rights to be exercised, Heller clearly rules out alternative choices as an option.”

That cuts to the heart of what California and their gun control allies are doing. This isn’t just about restricting magazines. This is another attempt to erase Second Amendment rights, first by relegating them to second-rate status, then eliminating them altogether.

Nothing is Anybody’s Fault. Clarice Feldman — “Media Blame Shifting … District Attorney Blame Shifting … Celebrity Blame Shifting … Political Candidate Blames Clear Record … Retail Theft Rings … You could also hold accountable California voters”

Contemporary West’s far left “religions” are as dumb and devastating as radical Islam. Lubos Motl — “the rational, balanced judgement is ultimately the primary cause that gives rise to the potential to create wealth and happiness; it is more fundamental than the wealth and happiness themselves.”

The amount of absolute insanity that is taking place – and that is clearly devouring tons of people around us – is so high that I increasingly insert whole days when I mostly isolate myself not only from the news on the Internet and in the “media” but also from all people who seem likely to be hopelessly brainwashed morons. I just really physically suffer when I am exposed to the human stupidity and its concentration in our environment is just unbelievable these days.” … 

We are fighting against all these braindead self-radicalized mammals who, at the end of 2021, still haven’t noticed that pretty much everything served at the CNN, MSNBC, WaPo… are shameless lies and propaganda designed to ruin the whole Western society while making a bunch of lying criminals richer and more powerful. Even more seriously, dozens of percent of the rank-and-file brainwashed loons are actively “improving” all these radicalizing CNN-style lies and they make them even more insane and more harmful because they have been programmed to behave in this way. This is really a transformation on par with the Islamic fundamentalist takeover of the West and before it is really too late, we must appreciate that the outcome of such a destruction of the West would be far graver than the unfortunate neutralization of a few thousand hinged untruthful fanatics which probably has to take place now.

No, Ron DeSantis is not creating a private army to take over America. Andrea Widburg — “Governor Ron DeSantis proposed reinstating Florida’s State Guard — and the entire leftist establishment went mad.  … If sanity were abroad in America, most people would sagely nod and say, “Well, that sounds like a fine, sensible idea, perfectly in keeping with American pattern and practice over the centuries.”  But sanity has left these shores, and leftists, many of whom should be assumed to know better, promptly announced that DeSantis was setting up a private army to take over America”

A Serious Look at the Moronic Variant. Kevin Roche — “aside from my base of skepticism to everything until good data and research is produced, there is nothing in the early data that tells me we should be unduly worried.  I know the CV-19 terrorists will be disappointed. … Which brings up the real issue with how this epidemic has been tracked and responded to–the excessive use and inadequacies of PCR testing.” … “We will never get out of this terrible cycle of futile and damaging responses to the epidemic as long as we keep this idiotic testing regime going.”

Researchers shoot holes in study touted for confirming ‘masks work’ in curbing COVID. Greg Piper — “Study of 342,000 adults finds masks effective against COVID based on 20 infections.”

Vinyl Sales Now Higher Than at Any Time Since 1988. Mike Johnson — “Twelve-inch LPs (LP stands for for long-playing)—introduced in 1948, stereophonic from 1957—were eclipsed by cassette tapes in 1982, and then by CDs in 1987. CDs went on to outsell cassette tapes in 1991, and by 2002 held a dominant 95.7% share of the market. Vinyl records, which had at least two-thirds of the market until 1980, fell to a nadir of just .02% in 2005, and to all appearances were well on the way out.  … Now, at the end of 2021, vinyl sales have beaten CDs for two years running, currently representing 6.6% of all music sales—the highest level since 1988.”

Bifurcating society

Third Worldizing America. Victor Davis Hanson — “Our elites, like the Third World rich, have mastered ignoring—and navigating around—the misery of others in their midst.”

AMA bringing dangerous levels of wokeness into the medical profession. Jazz Shaw — “They want to do away with “meritocracy” in admissions, claiming that having the schools accept only the best-performing students is “malignant” and “creates harm.” Perhaps even more alarmingly, they want to stress that associating race with genetics in the practice of medicine is equally evil. The result this could have on the quality and medical knowledge of the next generation of doctors and the impact on patients who receive flawed diagnoses is truly alarming. (Free Beacon)”

How the Courts and Bureaucracy Destroy the Constitution. Patrick J. Gibbs — “It has been building up to this point for the past 250 years. The U.S. Constitution was originally designed to divide the powers of the federal government among its three different branches (Congress, Executive, and Judiciary). The 10th Amendment to the Constitution went further and reserved to the States respectively, or to the people “the powers not delegated to the United States.” This separation of powers was intended to prevent a consolidation of power that would inevitably lead to the end of representative government.”

If we don’t stop the monster, it threatens to eat our Constitution and spit out a form of government unrecognizable to our Founders.

Refugees from Communist Countries Are The Canaries In The Coal Mine. Armando Simón — “All the signs are there. Put it all together, add 2+2, and you come out with 4—regardless of what American leftists now claim, like Obrien in 1984. Yet, I know of quite a few people who want to believe that the warnings are an exaggeration, alarmist (even when the enemy openly proclaim a Communist future), or who fervently wish that it would simply go away, who doggedly stick their heads in the sand, who want nothing more than to lead a quiet life. “As long as it doesn’t affect me” “Yes, I’m worried, but it’s going to be all right” are excuses that I have heard. They have no desire to learn more, to get involved, and even less to fight for their country. When it’s too late, they will be picked off, one by one.”

Biden legal defeats rapidly piling up across the nation on broad array of policy fronts. Aaron Kliegman — “On issues ranging from vaccine mandates to immigration policy and racial preferences, federal courts across the country have repeatedly found the Biden administration to be pushing policies which violate the Constitution.”

Federal Judge Expands Healthcare Worker Vaccine Mandate Injunction to Apply Nationally. Sundance — “with these rulings piling up against the White House; and with more and more Americans ignoring the fear porn being attempted with Omicron; we can expect the executive branch to go even stronger in the direction of more punitive punishment using federal mandates.”

Corrupt Politicians Overseeing Jan 6 Committee Are Afraid of the Truth – Bannon’s Subpoenas Scare Them to Death. Joe Hoft — “Americans deserve to know what actions Congress took before, during, and after the January 6th protest at the Capitol.” … “And why are Congress and the DOJ withholding information from those they prosecute who have every right to this information?”

DOJ Prosecutors Using Grand Jury to Subpoena Financial Records of 2020 Election Audit Groups. Sundance — “Remember, when the political agencies under the umbrella of the Fourth Branch of Government (CIA, FBI and DOJ) use their aligned media they follow a particular pattern of using New York Times, Politico and the Washington Post to build the framework of their investigative narratives.” … “The Fourth Branch of Government will activate against any individual, entity or group who is perceived as a threat.”

Smashing and Grabbing Blue America into Ruin. J. Robert Smith — “Zealots can’t be reasoned or compromised with; they aren’t open to either, anyway.  They won’t stop unless they’re defeated and pushed to the margins.  If progressive zealotry prevails, and progressives succeed at imposing their worldview on us, the consequences will be similar to what’s happening in dreary San Francisco and Chicago.  Main streets in our communities will become mean streets.  Americans of good sense and goodwill can’t permit that to happen.”

The Looting Will Stop When Store Owners Can Shoot On Sight. Parker Beauregard — “At once ascribing poverty, immoral historical legacies, and contemporary systemic racism, we are supposed to believe that what is happening is actually a form of justice. – Nothing could be further from the truth.” … “It should be as simple as saying that stealing is wrong. If it is not yours, don’t take it. If you want something, earn it. ”

Kamala Harris To DOJ: Hands Off Black Supremacists. Paul Mirengoff — “Leftists like Kamala Harris want us to believe that white supremacism is a major threat to America. What about black supremacism? To Harris and the left, it’s a myth, and worrying about it is racist.”

The Myth of White Supremacy Is Getting People Killed, But the Media Isn’t Telling You About It. Kevin Downey Jr. — “The left-wing media will continue to cry wolf over white nationalist boogeymen. Joy Reid, a black woman who went to Harvard and makes millions of dollars at MSNBC, will bang that drum all the way to the bank. Racism sells, even when it doesn’t exist (Psssst Jussie Smollett). And if 62 white people get run over in the process, who cares? Reid will just ignore it, and if pressed, she might justify it by recommending white people read one of the ten or so books about Emmett Till. Is “racial revenge” her goal?”

How Culture Got to the Point Where Saturday Night Live is Promoting Abortion in a Clown Outfit. Natasha Crain — “I break down the psychological process of moral buy-in that secular culture must go through to gain acceptance of a changed moral position: awareness, normalization, then celebration.” … “Christians, don’t be surprised. Secular culture will undoubtedly continue to “clown around” with evil. It’s actually quite predictable. – It’s the modus operandi for suppressing truth in unrighteousness.”

10 Things You Need to Know About Today’s Oral Arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Chris Queen — “Oral arguments wrapped at lunchtime, but there’s so much that happened. It’s hard sometimes for laypeople to wade through the legalese, but I’ve done the hard work for you, dear reader. Here are 10 things you need to know about today’s oral arguments in Dobbs.”

Justice Kavanaugh Just Boiled the Abortion Debate Down to Its Most Fundamental Core. Larry O’ConnorLarry O’Connor| — “When deciding between the interests of a pregnant woman and the interests of an unborn child, “You can’t accommodate both interests. You have to pick.”

So You Say You Want a Revolution? Sen. Jeanne Shaheen Issues a Warning to the Supreme Court. J. Turley — “these threats are an attack on the very concept of impartial judicial review.  “When you talk about destruction” of our traditions of judicial review, as the Beatles declared in 1968, “you can count me out.”

The COVID con is the ’76 swine flu fiasco on steroids. Selwyn Duke — “I came across a 1979 60 Minutes segment on the propaganda surrounding the 1976 swine flu scare.  … watching the segment drives home how striking the parallels between the two disease scares are.  Exaggerations of the bugs’ severity, media propaganda and fear-mongering, an effort to vaccinate the whole nation, serious vaccine-coincident side-effects, and an apparent government cover-up of the latter were all elements of the ’76 fiasco just as they epitomize what’s occurring today.”

The COVID Vaccine Failure. Jamaica Plain — “The CDC narrative on COVID is simply put: (1) the mask is your best defense, (2) COVID is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, and (3) vaccines are our only exit strategy. However, whenever their narrative falls apart, the emphasis shifts, cover-up lies become bolder, and dissenting science is censored.” … “As Americans, we can either be subject to medical political tyranny or stand for freedoms derived by our God-sanctioned morality. We need to decide whether to fight for our country founded as “a city on a hill” by the courageous who love freedom. Our alternative is a biosecurity state that promises us safety, tells only noble truths, and censors all dissenters. Now is the time to decide: a house divided cannot stand.”

Getting the axe

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

when circumstances and conditions come together in a once-in-a-lifetime manner

Fear Is Deadlier Than Viruses. Dennis Prager — “I’ve come to realize that it is possible to get people to do anything if you instill enough fear in them. Specifically, irrational fear.” … “You would think that the Enlightenment of the 18th century, with its focus on reason and science, would have led to a great lessening of irrational fear. — It hasn’t.” … “Irrational fear is also a major source of hatred. People hate what they fear.”

Determining whether your fears are rational or irrational is one of the most important things you will ever do. The quality of your life and the life of your society depend on your making that distinction.

Georgia Governor Releases More Evidence That 2020 Ballots Were Miscounted. Margot Cleveland — “While nothing will change the fact that Joe Biden is president, election integrity matters and Gov. Brian Kemp’s letter is but the latest proof that it must be shored up in America.”

Ace of Spades has a morning briefing that often is rather comprehensive. The 11/23 edition asks you to get ready for more racial healing. — “The litany of black-on-white and black-on-non-black attacks over the past 20 years and longer is mind boggling, not only in their sheer numbers, as was recorded in Colin Flaherty’s frightening eye-opener White Girl Bleed A Lot which was published nearly nine years ago, but for the fact that the media either embargoes these stories outright or failing that spins the facts faster than a dervish in an Iranian centrifuge, to create the narrative that the attack was somehow justified. Sound familiar?” — but wait! there’s more!

It wasn’t just the micro-computer arriving as a personal too in the late seventies that was a major technological upheaval, audio also turned over. The new documentary on the Beatles highlights the impact of significant innovators who utilized new tools to implement new ideas in recording. The seventies made the transition from tubes to transistors in audio equipment and heralded the change from single to multi channel audio and started the transistion from analog to digital with CD then DVD then personal computers with the 1997 Intel standard.

Stereo Gear in the 1970’s Was it The Audiophile Golden Age? Steve Feinstein — “There are times when circumstances and conditions come together in a once-in-a-lifetime manner,” … “For the market of high-fidelity electronics and speakers, that time was the 1970’s. Things came together in such a way that the market flourished and grew like never before. It was a singularly great time for the industry, with all the historic, demographic and technological conditions and advances coming together in a way that will never be repeated.”

Heap big medicine splattered all over

The Left’s Long Creep Through the Schools. Kevin Donnelly — “the reality is that the barbarians are no longer merely attacking the gates, they have now taken the citadel.” … “Schools are a primary focus of cultural-Left activists and fellow travellers in the fight to reshape society in their utopian image.” … “Underpinning a cultural-Left approach to education is the belief that knowledge is a social construct employed by those in control to enforce their dominance.”

Heap Big Medicine Man. John Hinderaker – “From Canada comes this ridiculous story about an academic grant to study pre-scientific methods of preventing cancer. One could say that the only important thing in this story is the dollar figure: $1.2 million. Academic institutions exist in large part as slush funds to funnel cash into the hands of liberal constituencies.”

Thugocracy: Science in the Postmodern World (Roger Pielke Jr. as victim). Richard W. Fulmer — “Today, thugs have taken over much of our politics, many of our universities, and much of our science. Their response to dissent is not to assemble facts and logic to support their claims but to slander, intimidate, and muzzle the opposition.”

Stunning good news from Chile — and not just for them, but for us. Monica Showalter — perhaps the tide is turning?

The worst kind of domestic terrorism. John F. Di Leo — “domestic terror has a particularly wicked dimension, because it’s not foreign enemies but our own neighbors who conduct it.” … “We have state’s attorneys and district attorneys all over America who refuse to prosecute most crimes… who refuse to ask judges for stiff sentences when they do prosecute… who happily plea-bargain cases down” … “If you’re looking for the worst kind of domestic terrorism, I sure can’t think of a worse one than flinging open the prison gates – whether by lack of effort or by executive order – and consciously setting such criminals loose.”

Looting Comes To The Suburbs. John Hinderaker — “Cities like Portland, Minneapolis and San Francisco have been devastated by rioting and looting. But smug suburban liberals haven’t seemed to mind much, as long as crime was confined to urban centers like Minneapolis and San Francisco, where, on Friday night, Union Square was looted. But what will they think when disorder strikes closer to home?”

The Rittenhouse Trial Underscores the Left’s Determination to Eliminate the Natural Right of Self-Defense. Steve McCann — “as there is a natural right of self-preservation, man has the right and duty to defend himself against transgressors, including the state, that would deny, abrogate, or unlawfully seize his property.”

Did Capitol Police murder someone other than Ashli Babbitt? Andrea Widburg — video suggests the affirmative

Time for Another Epidemic Summary. Kevin Roche — “Respiratory viruses have been around forever and we periodically have epidemics from them, influenza being the most common example.  And we should know by now that our ability to stop or control those epidemics is very limited.” … “Worst of all has been the terror campaign and the lies and misinformation.” … “We will survive all the virus can throw at us.  Humanity will be fine.  I am not sure we can survive the continued irrationality and deadliness of the government response.”

another chapter in the same book, here they go again

 

The Left’s War on Faith. Mervyn Bendle — “Culture at the Heart: Western Civilisation is in crisis, and at the heart of the crisis is culture. … all around us the forces of barbarism continue their relentless ‘long march through the institutions’ of Western Civilisation, corrupting and degrading them as they go.” — Historical Propaganda – Denying the Transcendent – Re-building the World – Destruction & Desecration – Descent into Terror – Militant Atheism – Soviet Atheism – Brutal Suppression – Scientific Atheism – Persecution – Public Reaction – Death Toll – Evangelical Atheists – Different Gods – Dereliction

None of this is accidental, of course. It is the contemporary outcome of the systematic atheistic propaganda that has been a core component of the Leftist agenda for a quarter of a millennium, as even a basic familiarity with history reveals, i.e., an historical understanding not derived from the bogus narrative of Western mendacity imposed on the minds of students in NSW schools and reinforced in crucial HSC exams. … 

But how can people learn from history if they are never taught history, but instead are fed bogus Leftist propaganda? This is why the Culture Wars are so important and why those who care about Western Civilisation must insist that their elected representatives properly exercise their responsibilities in contesting the forces of collectivist barbarism.

Get Woke, Empty The Pews. John Hinderaker — “Why is the ELCA failing? One obvious reason is that it has made clear that Christians who are not hard-core liberals–that is, the overwhelming majority of the population–are not welcome.”

Hanson on Citizenship. Terry Scambray — “Defining terms is always a good place to begin a conversation and Victor Davis Hanson’s The Dying Citizen. How Progressive Elites, Tribalism, and Globalization Are Destroying the Idea of America (Basic Books) weaves a rich definition of citizenship into his discussion of the current threats to this profoundly Western idea.”

A Brief History Of West African Slavery. ICE-9 [The Burning Platform] — “The lucrative Angolan slave trade not only flourished under female African leadership, but grew scientific and efficient and continued unabated until the Portuguese crown outlawed the colonial slave trade in 1869.  However, avarice and ingenuity always prevail so after this slavery prohibition a vibrant slave black market continued unabated as abolition only served to drive up the price of slaves and therefore the incentive to procure them in the field.  These lucrative smuggling operations from Angola lasted up until the day its primary customer Brazil abolished slavery in 1888.”

The woke will never mention the 800 years of an East African slave trade conducted by Arab merchants up and down the Indian Ocean coast.  The woke won’t utter a word regarding present day slavery across the Sahel countries of Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad, and Sudan.  One hears only silence from the woke when one mentions the “Systemic Ethniscism” that permeates every Bantu nation where wealth and power are concentrated into the hands of a dominant ethnic group.

Post-election swindles in Pennsylvania: there they go again. Lynne Lechter — “Against this abundant one-party control, and other states similarly governed, the world wants to move on from Donald Trump.  The mainstream media and its cohorts deem January 6 as emblematic of “the big lie.”  “False” they bellow, “Biden won.”   Whether one is pro- or anti-Trump, election shenanigans in Pennsylvania were brazenly accomplished.  Again.”

Scott Adams: Then And Now. Mark Wauck — “I think a lot of people have hit a wall.” … “Not that I was gullible before, or slow to catch on to the various hoaxes that have been perpetrated by the Power Elite, but I guess—a bit like Adams—I resisted the notion that it could be THAT bad.”

Heroes and Zeros: The Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict. Clarice Feldman — “If you want to end violence, act to prevent it instead of doing what you did do — encourage it by applauding it, contributing to organizations that foment it, and removing law enforcement — as you and the mayor of Kenosha did — when riots take place.”

Six Things We Learned From The Kyle Rittenhouse Trial. The BSC Team — “While voters bucked the media narratives against conservative candidates and conservative causes in early November, in the case of the jury they had to overcome not just a year of blatant falsehoods but direct intimidation. When a major broadcasting studio tasks journalists with following a secret jury bus, that is pure evil. However, these twelve Americans stood up to the threat of mob violence and personal attacks and vindicated young Kyle on all counts. — Something feels different in America right now”

Kyle Rittenhouse Did NOT Get a Fair Trial. Selwyn Duke — “Rittenhouse, and America, were failed by the perfidious prosecutor; the pusillanimous judge; the malevolent media; the depraved Democrat Party; and, to a lesser extent, the dithering jury. — Kyle Rittenhouse was, praise God, acquitted. But he did not get a fair trial.”

A meme sums up 90% of the left’s Kyle Rittenhouse lies. Bookworm — “Mayer made this statement and it’s being wildly shared all over social media. What’s important about it is that every fact within it is wrong.” … “I have a suggestion for confronting them. A wise man I knew used to say of interpersonal squabbles, “Don’t get furious; get curious.” … “Politely push them to share with you the facts supporting their claims. And if they return with provably incorrect “facts,” politely respond with irrefutable truth. Lots of them are going to be sundowners who cannot recognize the truth but others will be like Bari Weiss and realize that they’ve been the victims of a giant con.”

Is There a Chorus Building for DOJ to Look Into Possible Federal Charges Against Kyle Rittenhouse? Shipwreckedcrew — “Derek Chauvin was indicted on federal charges in Minnesota after a Motion For New Trial was filed following his conviction in state court.” … “And this is what I is fear the messaging might be about: 18 U.S.C. Sec. 239:” … “Those leading the Biden DOJ have already proven themselves willing to be the “Storm Troopers” for left-wing interest groups. Pursuing a prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse would simply be another chapter in the same book.”

Skid marks on the robes of justice, Whither honor?

Is the Air Force Academy Honor Code Dead? Doug Goodman and Scott Sturman — “Under real world military conditions, trust is an essential requirement, not a debatable philosophical principle.” … “The Honor Code is broken, as well as the academy’s ability to accomplish its primary mission of training career officers of character.”

A Border Sheriff’s Reality. Rick Fuentes — “It is Democrat wordsmithing to imply that the Biden’s border strategy is humanitarian.  To claim that moral high ground is antithetical to its true purpose, to expand the blue electorate at the terrible cost of enriching the drug cartels, endorsing human trafficking and child abuse, killing hundreds for their efforts, and putting thousands more into forced labor, poverty, and crime on America’s streets.  It is a willful crisis of humanity and an insult to all Americans if the Biden regime believes it can varnish it over with a few teleprompted speeches and scripted pressers.”

Judge Demands Answers From New York Times Over Publishing Project Veritas’ Privileged Docs. Scott Hounsell — “The New York Times now has until November 23rd, next Tuesday, to provide cause for why they published privileged attorney-client documents.”

knowing that they are currently under the demands of the defamation suit, they still figured it was appropriate to not only take possession of illegally-obtained privileged information but to then also publish those privileged documents. To know those risks, and to know that the action you’re taking is illegal, shows a stunning level of incompetence, or a flat-out effort to create further damages.  In a suit that requires intent, like defamation, handing your opposition an exhibit of your intent, is never a smart play.

It’s time for all of us to join Joshua’s Army. Bookworm — “Joshua destroyed Jericho’s walls with the sound of righteousness. By using truth against leftism, we can be Joshua’s Army in America.” … “Pushing back doesn’t mean engaging in illegal conduct. Pushing back means being like Joshua and the Israelites and making a noise. It’s time we stop getting along by going along with all the casual leftism that affects every aspect of our lives.”

You can be a paralyzed doublethinker or you can be a liberated truth-speaker. And again, you don’t have to speak the truth in such a way that you feel compelled to put your affairs in order and prepare for the FBI to knock down your door. Be honest, be polite, be respectful, be legal — and make the leftists in your world defend their positions, even while letting the doublethinkers around you know that (a) truth exists and (b) they’re not alone. By doing that, you will be a member of Joshua’s Army. 

Whistleblower Videos Capture Pennsylvania Election Officials Destroying Evidence. Margot Cleveland — “A complaint alleges Pennslyvania election officials were tearing tapes ‘into pieces and placing … them into the trash stating they will have a campfire to burn the data.'” … “the videos may not be enough for those so blinded by their distaste for Trump that they cannot see the real threat to our democracy: elections without integrity and an electorate unable to trust the official outcome.”

Ron DeSantis’s fiery statement about true conservative governance. Andrea Widburg — “the question is, do we actually have a constitution that constrains people like Biden or is it just when he loses patience, he can do whatever the hell he wants to?”

Rittenhouse

How Unethical Were the Prosecutors Trying to Put Kyle Rittenhouse in Prison? Let Us Count the Ways… Victoria Taft — “Thomas Binger and Jim Kraus left a skid mark on the robes of justice. They put a Kraus-sized turd on Lady Justice’s scale. And they almost put an 18-year-old in prison because he fought for his life and took out three of their “heroes,” as Binger called them.”

Crazed Reactions To The Rittenhouse Verdict.  John Hinderaker — “Rittenhouse took the law into his own hands? No, the law provides a right of self-defense. It was the rioters who attacked Rittenhouse who took the law into their own hands. And did Rittenhouse “walk free from any accountability”? Not at all. He was prosecuted and held to account before a jury, which, based on the evidence, acquitted him.” — but still a litany of prominent politicians and celebrities “not happy with the verdict”.

HOT TAKES: Leftists Have a Collective Mental Breakdown Over Rittenhouse Verdict. Jeff Charles — “the Twitterverse is full of hot takes from aggrieved, virtue-signaling leftists whining about how America is such a racist nation because it did not convict a man who clearly defended himself from three aggressors. Here are some gems for your viewing pleasure.”

Kenosha Crowd Reacts to Rittenhouse Verdict…and It’s Not What the Lying Media Told You Would Happen. Megan Fox — “Not only is the crowd overwhelmingly cheering for Rittenhouse and his right to self-defense, but the majority of the cars driving by were honking their horns in support of the verdict. This reaction gives me hope for America. Perhaps Americans do understand why our Constitutional rights are still important and why the mob cannot be allowed to have power over the law.”

Pandemic Panic

Suffering For Telling The Truth. Herschel Smith — “Way to stay classy, Houston Methodist Hospital.  A Twitter post.  You deal with a firing of a respected health care provider by issuing a Twitter post, a child’s forum of ten second sound bites for those with no attention span and little intelligence.”

Fauci Finally Admits Vaccines Don’t Protect Against Serious Covid or Death. Vasko Kohlmayer — “This is what data from Israel and other highly vaccinated countries has indicated for some time now.”

Vaxxocalypse Now. Janet Levy — “My first encounter with vaxxport tyranny took place last week at a Los Angeles gym, where I have been a member for two years.  Abiding by an edict from the governor of California, the reception staff asked to see my vaccination card or a QR code before allowing me access to the facilities.”

They think they’re OK – Understanding how they think this can be difficult

The Ten Stages of Genocide Are Hitting a Little Too Close to Home. J.B. Shurk — “this might be a good time to pull out Gregory H. Stanton’s “Ten Stages of Genocide” as a helpful reminder for keeping track of how things are “progressing” … Stanton, an academic and the founder of Genocide Watch, organized a sobering list of red-flag actions undertaken by governments over the last century on their way to committing mass murder.  See if any of them rings any bells with how supposedly “free” governments are behaving today.”

Only a bunch of socialists, communists, and fascists who have already murdered well over a hundred million people this last century without sating their bloodlust could keep on killing without reflection or remorse.  Besides, everything they do is with “the best of intentions” and for “the greater good.”

Book Review: The End of America – 100 Days that Shook the World, by J.J. Sefton. Leslie Eastman — “I give it 5 starts out of 5 stars. And if you are a regular reader of Ace of Spades HQ, you will want to get this book to support their efforts and to remember the gems that were published during one of the most challenging periods in this nation’s history.”

This Democrat Criminal Prosecution System is Deeply Immoral. Barry Shaw — “One certain sign that a country has gone off the rails is when the governing power systematically imposes a criminal prosecution that is prepared to change laws and conditions to favor the criminals over law-abiding citizens and create an atmosphere that leaves them defenseless.”

The Fifth Circuit Slapping Down Biden’s Illegal Vaccine Mandate Is Meaningless in the Face of a Lawless Presidency. streiff — “It is always nice to see federal judges protect civil liberties and reign in a ravenous federal bureaucracy,  … The sad fact is that the Biden bunch are telling businesses to ignore court orders that interfere with the mandate.”
