Getting Disappeared

roger franklin [Quadrant] — “When a senior military man assails the sitting president, it must be big news. Right? Well that would seem to depend on which party controls the White House and who is doing the criticising. Scour the ABC’s recent archives for reports of not one or two Pentagon veterans but 124 of them criticising the current US President and your ABC search will come up empty.” … “The opinions of one or two former brass is big news if Republican Trump is the target of their spleen. Ten dozen-plus doing the same about Democrat Biden and … crickets.” The other thing to note is the specificity of the expressed concerns and the use, or lack of use, of the ad hominem.

Western Civilisation and its Irrational Critics. Eugene Alexander Donnini — “”

“There is nothing stopping any cultural community living in a civic Western nation from practising the traditions of their culture and religion, as long as such practices do not interfere with the rights, freedom and safety of fellow citizens which is guaranteed under the law—fundamentally derived from Enlightenment values. This is one of the primary reasons the West has been so successful and prosperous; why people from all cultures and races migrate to the West and seldom away from it. In other words, the freedom they enjoy also comes with a responsibility to recognise the freedom and rights of others in their community, regardless of religion, culture or skin colour.

There is an anti-Enlightenment alliance today that wants to destroy Western civilisation and replace it with a collectivist Marxist dictatorship, an alliance between the intelligentsia, the media, universities, politics and big business, whose ships, ideologically, are all sailing in the same direction (away from Enlightenment values) and whose policies are fundamentally left-wing (E. Harris. Exposure of the Vast Left-Wing Establishment. Huffpost. 26/2/2016). Mainstream media are, to this end, mostly “fake news” (liars), globalist agitators and propagandists.

A pattern of socioeconomic failure extends to every single Marxist state that has existed

The basis of rational, reasonable, empirical, scientific Western thought grew out of the Enlightenment and was all founded on a lack of belief in authority: the authority of the church, the aristocracy, and the state. Instead of “faith”, Enlightenment philosophers demanded investigation and evidence to seek the truth.

Getting Disappeared by Google. Vasko Kohlmayer — “I am no tech expert, but I wonder if Google has further recalibrated its search algorithms in a way that certain writers and /or websites – apparently those that present views not in line with the left’s official narratives and which can be said to belong to the political right – do not come at all in simple queries involving a name, word or phrase? Even if you specifically type the name of the website into the query you only get very limited and skewed results.”

The Green New Deal’s Shock Troops. I & I Editorial Board — “This $10 billion show, which President Joe Biden wants as part of his “infrastructure” plan, would be called the Civilian Climate Corps, its foot soldiers trained to work with community groups on projects intended to “reduce carbon emissions, enable a transition to renewable energy, build healthier and more resilient communities, implement conservation projects with proven climate benefits, and help communities recover from climate disasters.”

Three minutes to prison. Nile McAdams — “One can be certain that remaining Twin Cities officers will weigh the political consequences of any encounter they have with the public. They understand that in the current political climate, they, too, could make a three-minute mistake and wind up in prison as sacrificial lambs to advance the political careers of the Democrat hierarchy.”

The Politics Of Ivermectin. Chuck Dinerstein — “Within medicine, this is a fight not about evidence-based care but about how much evidence is sufficient when you have little to offer when death or disability is the alternative, and there is a line stretching further than you can see waiting for your response.”

How A Year Of Unfounded, Contradictory CDC Guidelines Destroyed That Agency’s Credibility Forever. Madeline Osburn — “Will Americans ever be able to trust the CDC again after the agency mismanaged, lied, and bent to politics of this moment?” … “It’s stuffed to the brim with scientists and doctors and virologists, yet instead of rising to the occasion of a global pandemic, the bureaucracy shattered its reputation and credibility beyond repair.”

3 Persistent Myths Keeping Americans Stuck With Outdated COVID-19 Rules. Cathy Stein — “Here are few of the major COVID-19 narratives, the scientific perspective on the other side, and why ongoing restrictions should be reconsidered.” … Asymptomatic Transmission; COVID-19’s Severity; Effectiveness of Lockdowns. … “It seems that ongoing restrictions do not reflect these scientific perspectives, which have been largely censored or disregarded by policy makers. By blocking scientific debate, the adverse outcomes of lockdowns will continue.”

COVID and the Loss of Common Sense. Don Fotheringham — “Few of us are immune to the all-powerful assault of fear — of death for ourselves or those we love — a favorite toxin employed by anyone whose main goal is control of the target.”

Hilarious Picture From Mar-A-Lago Is Bringing Joy To Twitter Users. Clayton Keirns — “Look at the picture below from Mar-A-Lago, which shows Trump’s employees laughing, smiling, and trying to get a picture with him. Take a few seconds to focus on a different person each time you look at the picture. As Hull says, there is a LOT going on!”
