Cheesed off?

Imagine the Unimaginable – VDH – “Americans are now entering uncharted, revolutionary territory. They may witness things over the next five months that once would have seemed unimaginable.” … “Remember all these catastrophes are self-induced. They are choices, not fate.”

There Will Be Blood – “Progressive activists have long fallen on the tactic of resorting to violence, destruction, and even bloodshed to get their points across.” … “The Progressives are akin to spoiled children – if they don’t get their way, a temper-tantrum is inevitable. While I hope that I am wrong; I fear what is to come”

Liberals: Shut up and Sit Down – “If you wondered why liberals can be shown demonstrable, provable facts and not change their minds, wonder no more: They are not listening.” … “We are awake now and mightily cheesed off. They have tried to baptize this cat but are getting clawed raw. The sleeping dragon is up. The wheels are coming off the train. Choose your metaphor, but however you dress up this lipsticked pig this will not end well for the emperor and his clothes.”

Years into the assault

The License to Leak: How Years of Attacks on the Court Created a “By Any Means” Mentality – JONATHAN TURLEY – “Most court observers surely must have hoped this was an elaborate hoax, that someone had not shattered every legal and judicial ethical rule by leaking a draft opinion. But there was no denial from the court” … “It was a collective effort by those who bred contempt for our legal institutions and values. This is not a crisis of the court. It is a crisis of faith”

Role of Journals and their Editors in Preserving False Research Findings – Watts Up With That? – “we describe our experience of how journals and their editors work to preserve false findings in meta-analysis studies they publish” … “The business model of many journals promotes incentives for the author and publisher to work against sound science and interest of the public. Our position is that it is time for the public to view any meta-analysis published in the journal PLOS One as untrustworthy until proven otherwise.”

What ‘Moving On’ Has Cost Us –  “Republicans, as a party and as a mindset, are incapable of enforcing justice even when enjoying control of both houses of Congress and the White House. When they reach the threshold requiring a decision, they inevitably choose to “move on” instead”

The true import of the Alito draft –  “What makes the decision so significant is that it’s not even just about the Constitution; instead, even more specifically, the Alito draft is about the Supreme Court’s constitutional jurisprudence”

 Remote learning was a disaster — Joanne Jacobs “students who stayed home for most of 2020-21 fared much worse” … “Did keeping schools closed save lives? Apparently not” … “In addition to the “lost” or “unfinished” academic learning, out-of-school students lost social skills”

Science, evidence, and social conformity

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

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

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

 … 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

the Asch Conformity Experiment

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fraud swamp

How America Became La La Land. Victor Davis Hanson – “America these last 14 months resembles a dystopia. It is becoming partly the
world of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, and partly the poet Homer’s land of the Lotus-Eaters.” … “Biden then concocted the perfect recipe for bringing back the inflation of the 1970s …  unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law … hellbent on his way to fulfilling his campaign   promises of eliminating the use of natural gas and oil on his watch” … “all of these problems are self-induced”

THE BIG LIE: The Most Obvious Reason the 2020 Election Was Stolen – Democrats Attack, Block and Threaten to Sue All Efforts to Uncover Election Fraud. Joe Hoft – “With no actual accomplishments to point to, having ruined everything that was running so well for the American people, Democrats are turning to what has become their most effective electoral tool in recent years: Fraud”

Heartbreak on Capitol Hill as Democrats Come to a Realization About Jan. 6 Committee – RedState. Sister Toldjah – “going into overdrive in giving the stories their best spins in hopes of distracting people from the self-destruction currently taking place within the Democratic party”

Fraud is the Only Issue – American Thinker. Steve Feinstein – “Democrat policies have tangibly and dramatically degraded the quality of daily life in  America, to the point where many people are starting to doubt that things will ever return to normal”

Don Surber: What the press got wrong on DeSantis and Disney: Everything. “hysteria designed to undercut an elected legislature in an election year on behalf of a private company – Disney is not the victim, no matter how loud and often the media says this”

Connecting the Dots on Early COVID Treatments – American Thinker. Antonio R. Chaves – “Given that there is no moral or scientific basis for this unprecedented disruption of the doctor-patient relationship, why are the CDC and FDA doing this?” … “If you still believe the lockdowns, mandates, and medical recommendations were hammered out in good faith, I have some Moderna stock to sell you”

A Mostly Wind- & Solar-Powered US Economy Is A Dangerous Fantasy | ZeroHedge. Francis Menton via The Gatestone Institute. – “If you propose a predominantly wind/solar electricity system, where fossil fuel back-up is banned, you must, repeat must, address the question of energy storage”

Trump floats; Irregularities and ignorance; why?

The verdict is in: the Trump slandering is a pack of lies. Post Editorial Board – “Yet “not technically plausible” and “user created” became the bywords of the day. Durham is chipping away at the conspiracy. And it is a conspiracy. The evidence is obvious”

Montana’s Suspicious 2020 Election Irregularities Are Still Unaddressed. John R. Lott, Jr. – “If large errors can occur in even relatively uncontested parts of the country, we should be broadly concerned. What went wrong?”

Leftists’; Utter Mindlessness about Voter Fraud. Brett Higby – “unimportant facts that are just glossed over”

Democrats are campaigning on Jan. 6 hypocrisy. Miranda Devine – “We are reminded with sickening regularity of the double standard of justice applied to BLM–Antifa’s insurrectionists, who tore up cities and attacked cops and federal property in the run-up to the 2020 election and have suffered few consequences”

Frontiers of ‘white privilege’. Thomas Lifson – “Evidently, the race-obsessed are now reduced to complaining that black people don’t have equal opportunities to commit crime successfully. I’d hate to see the affirmative action program they’d come up with”

I wonder why people thought they would be completely safe if they took the vaccines. Jack Hellner – “It is essentially another attempt to blame the people instead of the government for their misperceptions”

When the fist priority is to win the play

Truth, ethics, morality, – everything else – takes a back seat. Win the case but forget the game (e.g. justice) 

The Lawyers’ War on Law. Mark Pulliam — “This essay originally appeared in the pre-digital magazine The American Enterprise (published by the American Enterprise Institute) in March 2001. Written over 21 years ago in the wake of the 2000 election dispute in Florida, which was resolved in Bush v. Gore, I think my take has held up pretty well. Proven prescient, even”

The judge in a January 6 case should be disbarred. Andrea Widburg — “One of the most visible signs of our federal government’s corruption is the treatment being meted out to the January 6 prisoners, who have been deprived of their express and inherent rights under the Constitution, one of which is the right to an impartial judge”

Legal Filing Sets Internet Ablaze With Reference to FBI/ATF ‘Assets’ ‘Embedded’ on Jan. 6. Nick Arama — “from defense attorney David Fischer in one of the Jan. 6 cases, which the folks at The Epoch Times found. Fischer claims in a footnote that “[a]t least 20 FBI and ATF assets were embedded around the Capitol on J6,” according to the filing. Where did that come from?”

More Jan. 6 Select Committee Nonsense Revealed as CNN Targets Private Texts of Rep. Chip Roy, Sen. Mike Lee. Rebecca Downs — “It’s seriously worth wondering who this audience is that CNN is trying to rile up and appeal to. Perhaps they themselves don’t even know”

I’m a Proud Member of the Rebel Alliance. Clarice Feldman — “Are we all serfs kept under the thumb by platforms secretly subsidized by the Deep State and foreign interests? That the SEC has decided to investigate other Musk operations  suggests to me that his offer to buy Twitter has set off serious alarms in the galactic empire. Musk seems to think so”

Elon Musk runs into the Twitter poison pill. Monica Showalter — “If you want a classic example of “small,” a pretty good place to look is on the hallowed heights of the Twitter elite” — “these Twitter elites are saying that power matters more to them than money.  That’s weird stuff coming from a business.  They don’t seem to operate on a profit basis, and anyone involved with this company is a victim”

With no shame whatsoever but the reality exists

Is there any self awareness?

Will J6 Be Remembered More Like the Boston Massacre? J.B. Shurk — “Did the world really witness a bunch of rowdy Americans try to overthrow the U.S. government on January 6, 2021?” — “nothing good can come from the federal government’s attempts to harass and criminally imperil Trump by demonizing his supporters, siccing the FBI on J6 political protesters for committing vague crimes hardly more serious than ordinary trespass, locking up defendants awaiting trial for years, or denying the accused access to thousands of hours of potentially exculpatory video evidence”

Jan. 6 Political Prisoner Was Going to See His Family for 1st Time on His Birthday After 15 Mos. in Prison — Then Biden Regime Moved Him Right Before Family Visit (AUDIO). Jim Hoft — “Islamic terrorists who murdered Americans had more rights than Trump supporter Jake Lang.”

Former president Obama has been on quite a mission the past week to rewrite history (and most of the media just applaud). Jack Hellner — “Will journalists ever get a conscience and do their job”

Charles Murray’s Wake Up Call on Race Problems. John Dale Dunn — “Murray disputes the fashionable assumption that racial discrimination creates social inequities.  The reality, says Murray, is that racial inequalities in America between European- and African-heritage people in health, wealth, position, status, and income can be traced to a significant disparity in African Americans’ cognitive ability and criminal behavior.  The inequalities are also present to a lesser degree for Latin-heritage people” — “_Facing Reality_ goes over some old ground but the evidence presented is compelling”

It’s about the children: Two views

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sometimes logic isn’t rational

The Inexorable Logic of Dictators. Steven Hayward — “Time to recall once again the counsel of Churchill” — “Make the suitable adjustments and names swaps, and this passage applies pretty well to the current situation”

Just in Time for the Apocalypse: Albrecht Durer and a Different Take on the Symbolism of the Four Horsemen. Richard Bledsoe — “It’s staggering how much we’ve all been deceived, and for how long. It’s going to be judgement day for many people, especially those who utilized Postmodern strategies of deception and groupthink as their means of power”

Google Just Declared War On The Most Accurate Pollster In America — And On Most Americans. I & I Editorial Board — “We only recently started showing up on Google’s hit list. But as of now, the tech giant is suppressing its ads on seven of our articles. They are (and the reason they gave):”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

intellectually and morally bankrupt

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

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

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

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

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

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

The paint is peeling and they don’t seem to notice

what Eisenhower said about butchers – damning revelations painted over, sorta’ — Mark Twain had a Tom Sawyer story about this – a line has been crossed but we’ll see if anyone cares – spies  – also note from elsewhere: the FBI kidnap prosecution failed, a 1/6 defendant was acquitted and another is seeking to reneg on a plea deal

Macgregor On Trump. Mark Wauck — “This comports with my own previously expressed assessment, that Trump thought people in uniform rise to the top through merit and by being ‘straight arrows’” — “Donald Trump didn’t fit that. He’s one of the nicest persons you will meet. People who see him publicly, they don’t really appreciate what a nice, sincere human being he is. And I think he gave too many people too many opportunities, too much benefit of the doubt, too often”

Hunter Biden Laptop Cover Up — One More Reason Why We Need Strong Voter Integrity Reforms. Lewis K. Uhler and Joseph Yocca — “The laptop contained damning revelations that Hunter Biden essentially acted as a bag man for then-Vice President Joe Biden to enrich the now president through international business dealings in Ukraine, Russia and China.  Is it also not lost on us that these same regions are causing the most crisis in the world today”

Primary Witness to Material Within Hunter Biden Laptop Says Active Two-Star General Has Warned Him About Pending U.S. Government Retaliation.  Sundance — “After media, Senate and U.S. government officials refused to take action, Maxey went to Switzerland in order to complete a full forensic audit of the laptop content in a neutral jurisdiction”

They Just Make Stuff Up. John Hinderaker — “Liberals think conservatives are awful, but the truth is that conservatives don’t do enough awful things to keep liberals supplied. So liberals fill the gap by simply making up slanders against conservatives”

Disinformation, American style. Scott Johnson — Duffy’s excellent column adds this salient point: “The speaker lineup makes things clear: the conference seeking to combat ‘disinformation’ does just the opposite. It celebrates some of America’s biggest liars as they spread more lies.”

Considering the media’s behavior, it’s no wonder so many politicians are corrupt. Jack Hellner — “Basically, the media and other Democrats don’t care about facts — only winning” — “The media don’t care about the corruption of the Bidens, the Clintons, or all the criminal activity of the Obama administration as they illegally targeted Trump while protecting career criminal Hillary from prosecution”

Malone v. The New York Times Company et al. A line has been crossed — “I represent Dr. Robert W. Malone in connection with his claims against The New York Times Company (“NYT”), Davey Alba (“Alba”) and unknown editors and publishers for defamation, defamation by implication and insulting words” — “My client wishes to resolve this matter amicably and without litigation. If you refuse to take the above action within 30 days of the date of this letter, or if the retractions are insufficient, he intends to take appropriate legal action to protect his rights and interests”

Why the Classroom Activists Never Give Up. Brian Parsons — “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” – Abraham Lincoln — “espite legislation to ban certain ideologies in the classroom in many states, activists continue to rebrand their tired ideas with new labels and fill the malleable minds of the youth with divisive and subjective ideologies”

Race obsession, all over. Jason Peirce — “It’s become abundantly clear that the people most loudly accusing America of being a bastion of “systemic racism” are either ignorant or self-serving cowards”

There’s Something Happening Here… John Hinderaker — “It strikes me that Mr. Taherzadeh and Mr. Ali are likely to take their place in a line of news stories with respect to which we never got to hear the punch line: the Pakistanis who handled tech services for the Democratic House caucus until their arrest; the Chinese spy who, for years, was Dianne Feinstein’s driver; the Chinese spy Fang Fang who bedded Eric Swalwell”

Trump Haters Impeached Him For ‘Inciting A Riot.’ Now They’re Claiming The Riot Was Premeditated. Tristan Justice — “The idea of a coordinated assault undermines the narrative Donald Trump was responsible for spontaneously inciting an ‘insurrection.’”

Disinfo denial

The famous ‘how can intelligence agency types be so dumb?” – Then there is the conference to sooth and provide salve for the perpetrators – Pennsylvania continues to reveal just how bad election corruption has been.

Disinformation, American style. Scott Johnson — “How obvious was it? Van Buren writes” — ““So we’ll call that letter claiming the Biden emails were potential Russian disinfo a lie, a fabrication, made-up, fake stuff designed to influence an election. That’s disinformation by any definition, and evidence the only disinformation op in 2020 was run against the American voters by their own intelligence community working with the media and on behalf of the Democrats.”

The Disinformation Conference exposes the Washington Democrat Media Complex. Rajan Laad — “A few days ago, The Atlantic magazine organized their ‘Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy’ conference at the University of Chicago” — “It is important to understand that when liberals use words such as bias, partisanship, disinformation, distortions, and spin they are exclusively directed at right-leaning media” — “Their sanctimoniousness has caused such levels of delusions that they think of themselves as the sole custodians of facts, truths, and taste” — “Inevitably, a few contrarians manage to infiltrate the echo chambers and challenge the groupthink” — “The Disinformation Conference demonstrates that there never will be any course correction simply because the propagandists do not think they have erred in any way”

Explosive Pennsylvania Testimony Explains How Leftist Money Infiltrated Election Offices In 2020. Margot Cleveland — “This evidence should be enough for the Pennsylvania legislature to recognize there is a real problem when private money and private actors collaborate with election officials.”

Court: Pennsylvania Must Release Records On Non-Citizens Voting In Elections. Shawn Fleetwood — “Pennsylvania must release records pertaining to a ‘glitch’ that allowed non-citizens to register to vote in the state for decades”

Stand for Christ and the civilization hew spawned

Pope Francis Tells Christians to Surrender Before Violence. Raymond Ibrahim — “Pope Francis, a leading advocate of Doormat Christianity, is at it again, trying to reverse nearly two millennia of Christian doctrine, by preaching total passivity—even against violent aggression.” — “There is, indeed, such a thing as a just war—the only rational way of responding to unjust wars—and it is firmly grounded in Christian, especially Catholic, teaching, even if the head of the Catholic world argues otherwise.”

To Keep Western Civilization Alive, Join In Its Great Conversation. Paul Krause — “It is important for conservatives to understand the great importance of the humanities to the future of their civilization” — “it can also flourish with you and in your home — we need that as well. Culture often starts, and flourishes, around the kitchen table and the family home.”

Trans Activism Disproves Patriarchy. Trish Randall — “In the space of only a few years, trans activists have had a visibly disruptive effect on our society. If their claims were true — ” — “While claims and demands about definitions, self-identification, and grammar have been highly visible, trans ideology also rests on another, older set of claims — claims created and promoted by feminists”

The Problem With Jon Stewart Andrew Sullivan — “How painfully, cringingly super-woke must a comedian get to stay relevant?” — “Stewart’s claim that whites never tried to ameliorate black suffering until now requires him to dismiss over $19 trillion of public funds spent in the long War on Poverty, focused especially on black Americans”

Sacramento Mass Shooter Was Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison in 2018, Paroled in 2021 Over DA’s Objection. Jennifer Van Laar — “Shortly after a mass shooting occurred in Sacramento, California early Sunday, Joe Biden was busy using the tragedy to beat the drum for more gun control across the country – despite the fact that California arguably has what are the nation’s strictest gun control laws, and despite not having any facts about the shooting or the shooters. Other gun control activists quickly jumped aboard the train.”

John Durham, Michael Sussmann, And The Broader Clinton Conspiracy. Techno Fog via The Reactionary — “There was a flurry of filings in the Michael Sussmann case late yesterday. Here’s the latest.” — “Durham states the “evidence of a joint venture or conspiracy” … That … leaves us with an important question: which “agents of the Clinton Campaign” were involved in this conspiracy?”

48 Hours After Orban’s Landslide Victory, EU Launches Punitive Rule Of Law Mechanism. Tyler Durden — “The EU Commission has announced Tuesday it will launch the so-called rule of law mechanism against Hungary, which links EU funds to whether or not democracy is being upheld” — “sour grapes are being made known swiftly”

Those NGO’s and their GO partners

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s just words on paper

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

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

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

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

It’s the children. Here’s How

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

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

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

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

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

A hoax plague

The election free and fair? Laptop evidence? Damning record gap? Biden or Trump? Child perversion OK? Learn from history and avoid destroying the foundation of a civil world.

Blue State Blues: The 2020 Election* Gets a Giant Asterisk over Hunter Biden Laptop. Joel B. Pollak — “The 2020 election must forever be tagged with an asterisk, given that the country’s establishment media have finally admitted that Hunter Biden’s laptop, which they suppressed during the campaign, is authentic, despite President Joe Biden’s denials.” – “the 2020 election can no longer be recognized as free and fair.” – “it is not necessary to point to theories about voting machines, missing ballots, or election fraud to know that the 2020 vote fell short of basic democratic standards:”

The Weakest Presidential Line Of Succession Ever. I & I Editorial Board — “But what about further down in the line of succession? Should some calamity befall both Harris and Biden on the same day, 82-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would immediately be sworn in as president” — “New York University constitutional scholar Richard Epstein warns, “in the long run a nation that places a succession of fools and knaves in high places will not be able to survive unscathed regardless of its constitutional structure.” Under the Biden administration, that nation, with its presidential succession of fools and dotards, may not survive at all, even in the short run.”

Media’s ‘7-hour Gap’ Story in White House Logs Turns Out to be Hoax: CNN. Joel B. Pollak — “The establishment media were abuzz this week with stories about a “seven-hour gap” in White House switchboard logs on January 6, but on Thursday night it emerged that the gap was likely the result of using ordinary landlines and cell phones.”

Oops! Another ‘walls closing in’ narrative about Trump hiding phone records with a 7-hour ‘gap’ falls apart. Monica Showalter — “They made fools of themselves with tweets like these” – “The media clowns breathlessly reported that they had “gotten” Trump at long last, but the whole thing fell apart in two days like a bad souffle. This is interesting because it’s far from the first time this kind of excitement, hype, buildup, and gotcha sentiment has gripped the mainstream media.”

No, Pointing Out The Media’s Lies Does Not Threaten Democracy. Kiyan Kassam — “Journalists and organizations that decry the rise of ‘misinformation’ and being branded ‘fake news’ should look in the mirror.” – “The past two years have absolutely exposed corporate media institutions in both Canada and the United States as purveyors not of mere bias but rather outright lies and falsehoods told in furtherance of a far-left political agenda.”

In Vermont, a Raw Attack on Free Speech. John Klar — “Vermont’s social justice legislators have launched a transparent and illegal assault against free speech liberties.” – “Vermont seeks to send citizens to jail for threatening political leaders for twice as long as if they physically assaulted them!”

The Biden Family Racket Is Everything Leftists Fabricated About The Trumps, And Media Are Crickets. Jordan Boyd — “The real scandal isn’t about Trump, it’s about the legacy media’s lack of coverage of the Biden family’s shady dealings.”

Democrats And Media Enablers Are Overlooking Child Sex Crimes To Protect Ketanji Brown Jackson. Rachel Bovard — “In every single child pornography case handled by Judge Jackson, she went below the maximum recommendation, below the minimum recommendation, and below the prosecutor’s request.”

Who will vote to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson and why? Patricia McCarthy — “Based on the torrent of information that has been made public about Ketanji Brown Jackson, it is shocking that any member of Congress would vote to confirm her to the SCOTUS.  Add to this that thousands of documents from her four years on the Sentencing Commission have been withheld, presumably by Dick Durbin.  Those four years of her record must be damning, for never before has a nominee’s record not been made available to the Judiciary Committee.”

Absentminded conservatives allowed an army of perverts to take over the schools. Olivia Murray — “For whatever reason, whether it be that conservatives as a whole are too uninterested in child sexual abuse, or whether they are too cowardly for fear of the word “bigot,” they are to blame for the rampant debauchery that has been unleashed upon on our children. We have pandered to the sick depravity of pedophiles like Alfred Kinsey, and where has it gotten us?”

We Must Speak Out Against Attacks on Law, Liberty, and Natural Rights. Jonathan Verlin and E. Jeffrey Ludwig — “Before the 1960’s there was an invisible line delineating public expressions that were clean or moral from those that were lewd, lascivious, and a threat to the well-being of both adults and minors” — “Progressives hate America with such vitriolic and reckless abandon that they ostensibly hold the moral stature of illegal aliens and even terrorists in higher regard than their honest law-abiding countrymen.” – “The deterioration of rights and the explosion of tyranny and immorality from the so-called progressive Left must end.”

Appeals Court Upholds Gibson’s Bakery Massive Verdict Against Oberlin College. William A. Jacobson – “The Gibson family appreciates the Court of Appeals’ thorough and thoughtful analysis which rightly rejected all of Oberlin College’s and Dean Raimondo’s challenges on appeal.”

History Should Be Our Guide in Ukraine. Victor Davis Hanson — “Ukraine can defeat Vladimir Putin’s expeditionary army if the West remembers that history is not on Putin’s side.”

Ignorant judges, Children, moral preeners, and dim lights

The young ones are just tools – calling the judge ignorant is being polite – smear and slime should be getting old and stale by now but isn’t – and just whose facts are up for being gored, anyway?

Many Democrats are clearly evil and openly acknowledge their ignorance; why should they be trusted on matters of innocent life? Jack Hellner — “If Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson were honest, she would acknowledge the tenets of her political party: life begins when Democrat politicians decide it does.”

How CDC Colluded With Teachers’ Unions to Devastate America’s Children. John Hinderaker — “Perhaps the most damaging of all “anti-covid” measures over the last two years were the public school closures. … A just-released report by Republicans on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis suggests that the cause was inappropriate and perhaps unprecedented influence on the Centers for Disease Control exerted by the teachers’ unions, specifically the American Federation for Teachers.”

Federal Judge’s Opinion on Trump Reveals Judiciary’s Reliance on Media Propaganda. Robert J. Hutchinson — “It’s difficult to have much faith in the judicial system when individual judges appear to be gullible consumers of fake news, swallowing media accounts of events that have been widely questioned and, at least in some cases, debunked completely.”

The Attacks On Clarence And Ginni Thomas Are Merely Latest In A Decades-Long Smear Campaign. Tristan Justice — “Not only are the attacks on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni purely political, they’re deeply hypocritical.”

Don’t Be Gaslighted About How Insane The Kavanaugh Hearings Were Even Before Blasey Ford Accusations. Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino — “Democrats are hoping the American people, like Judge Jackson, were not paying attention during the Kavanaugh hearings.”

Biden’s Red Queen Justice: The Border Agents Remain Under Investigation Six Months After Debunked Whipping Scandal. Jonathan Turley — “While the Administration promised a conclusion to the investigation within days or weeks, it has continued to refuse to release any results and insists that it remains “under investigation.” The concern is that the Administration does not want to contradict the President who proclaimed the guilt of the agents and promised that they would be punished before they were investigated, let alone adjudicated.”

The Unanimously Liberal Tilt of the ‘Fact Checkers’ Tim Graham  — “Checking liberals and Democrats is apparently not listed among their job duties.”
