"Did anything fall out?"

Since I do write a blog, and since I have just experienced major surgery, perhaps I should write about the experience!
One year ago I woke up in the morning with a mangled left eye. l looked up addresses of opthamologists, and set out walking for the nearest one. The doctor was amazed that I had the nerve to bring such an ugly specimen to be examined by him. After all, he was a faithful devotee of New Mexico's governor, who had just locked down the city where I live, Santa Fe. Not Walmart or any other of her favorite corporations, just the little guys.
Several other doctor visits later, a surgery was performed in Albuquerque. In that surgery, an opthamologist took the cornea out of my left eye. The problem was that I had a cancer tumor growing in there. I began participating in immunotherapy every three weeks. One day recently when I showed up for my treatment, my oncologist abruptly told me the treatments had stopped being effective and would be halted immediately. He told me to go back to the surgeon in Albuquerque and have him dig out that growing tumor.
I was happy to hear that the Albuquerque surgeon had taken on a partner. She was kind, compassionate, and very smart. She told me that she could get all but a small amount of the cancer tumor, which could then be safely removed by the radiologist in Santa Fe who had removed the cancer from the exterior of my face a couple of years previously. I liked him, too, because he had told me a year ago, "Your cancer is SHIT!" I liked the fact that he hated my cancer!
She did it! In my first post=op session today, her assistant came in the room and immediately stood across from a computer. The first question he asked me was, "Did anything fall out?" I thought he was perhaps an unlucky carrier of a sick sense of humor like myself, but he was actually serous! He was talking about the dressing/bandage covering my incision.
I am scheduled to get the dressing/bandage taken off by her next Wednesday, then immediately schedule the radiologist who hates the rest of my nasty tumor!

President Biden now says "There is no federal solution!"

He previously said he was "going to shut down this virus!" Read more here: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2021/12/27/joe-biden-officially-taps-out-on-covid-crisis-there-is-no-federal-solution/

If you want to know who rules over you, find out who you cannot make fun of!

What have they done to us?

600,000 got-aways!

Robert Kraychik reports,
Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, said on Thursday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with host Alex Marlow that the Biden administration exempts migrants crossing the southern border from coronavirus testing and vaccine mandates while imposing such decrees on Americans.
Morgan said, “[Joe Biden] said that it’s unpatriotic for you not to get a vaccine. Meanwhile, it’s this president’s policies that have incentivized two million apprehensions during his first eleven and a half months of office. Another number that’s very important: 600,000 got-aways, That’s 600,000 illegal aliens that have broken into our country and invaded, and why? Because 60, 70 percent of our Border Patrol resources are pulled off the front line, pulled off the national security mission to process two million [migrants].”

You reap what you sow!

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
During the 2020 campaign, both Biden and vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris also had cast doubt on the safety and efficacy of the Operation Warp Speed vaccines. They repeatedly implied that any forthcoming jabs would be tainted by Trump’s sponsorship.
Yet, later in office, both would publicly deplore any doubt similar to their own about vaccination safety or efficacy. Indeed, they equated remaining unvaxed to being unpatriotic. In addition, when Biden was inaugurated, he claimed that no Americans had been vaccinated. In fact, on some days under Trump more than a million people were receiving vaccinations.
But fate, not Biden, was the master of our COVID-19 destinies. Soon both the Delta and Omicron variants arrived, and we are now back to a Groundhog Day of possible lockdowns and mask mandates. Certainly, Biden would not wish a political rival to do to him what he did to Trump: question the efficacy and safety of the vaccines, blame Biden for more than 400,000 deaths on his watch, and claim the continuance of the pandemic was Biden’s fault alone.
What’s the moral of Biden’s current troubles? From the Bible and the Greeks and throughout the Western tradition, there is a constant refrain of being wary of hubris, the lying and arrogance that are innate to it, and the divine power that ultimately levels things out.
Biden and the Left so despised Donald Trump that they lost all sense of moderation, of proportion, of logic itself. Thus, they find themselves in the current ridiculous situation of suffering the consequences of their own unhinged rhetoric and actions.
This madness was birthed in part because Trump’s newly calibrated populist Republican Party had the potential to permanently draw the working class away from Democrats. In part, they found Trump’s salesmanship and braggadocio repulsive and contrary to bicoastal manners. Partly his agenda had more success since any first term since Ronald Reagan. Add it up, and the result was toxic hatred and mindless rejection of the successful policies.
Biden’s undoing was claiming not just to be antithetical to Trump, but the antithesis of all that Trump did. His hatred blinded him to the reality that Trump’s record on Afghanistan, the border, COVID-19, the economy, foreign policy, energy, and regulation was in each instance either adequate or very good. To simply nullify all of it, and to claim Trump was an ungodly disaster, meant Biden’s own one-dimensional rejectionist policies had to be winning and successful. And when they were neither, he suffered not just the wages of failure, but of hypocrisy and nemesis as well.
Meanwhile, suspicion continued to grow that much of the woke agenda was fast-tracked through the military because it served the careerist trajectories of the compliant officer class. Again, those who felt their self-importance had earned them commensurate influence and power well beyond their tasks of ensuring deterrence and military preparedness, lost both influence and power—both for themselves and the military itself.
Republicans who joined FDR on the eve of World War II knew him to be vain, duplicitous, treacherous, and an egomaniac. But also, they conceded that he had the rare talent to galvanize the nation to defeat its enemies, and to charm and cajole the capitalist classes to produce weapons and goods as no other nation in history had done.
So, there were reasons why Socrates advised “Know thyself,” why the oracle at Delphi emblemized “Nothing too much”—and why you reap what you sow.

The time to counter the Big Lie is now!

Roger Kimball asks,
Is there anything that could have been done to intervene in that exercise of myth-making that surrounded the Kennedy assassination? Anything that could have short-circuited the metamorphosis of the criminal action of a single deranged communist into the group responsibility of nebulous “haters” and “extremists” throughout the country?
I do not know the answer to that. But the same question has come around again with respect to the events of January 6, 2021 and, more generally, with respect to support for Donald Trump.
Here we can witness in real time the effort to enact another myth—the myth that the events at the Capitol on January 6, constituted an “insurrection” as deadly as Oklahoma City, as 9/11, as Pearl Harbor, even (if you are to believe Joe Biden) the “Civil War.” You could see that narrative, that process of mythopoeia, begin to take place even before the protestors withdrew from the Capitol. It was all nonsense. But it has been pursued assiduously by the left-wing political apparatus in the government and their megaphones in the media.
The trick now is to magnify those alternative accounts, disseminate them as broadly and as authoritatively as possible. There is no reason that Nancy Pelosi or Jim Acosta or Joe Biden or Merrick Garland should be allowed to define the reality of what happened on January 6. The work of writers like Julie Kelly at American Greatness and Darren Beattie at Revolver News needs to be echoed and extended as vigorously as possible. Myths can be pernicious as well as illuminating or entertaining. The myth that what happened on January 6 was an insurrection that aimed to “overthrow the government” or “overturn the election” must not be allowed to stand and gain credence. The time to counter that Big Lie is now.

"The emergency is over!"

So said Colorado Governor Polis about Covid, and Glenn Reynolds agrees and adds,
It is. And now that it’s over, we need to claw back all the power seized by various institutions in the name of emergency. And when that’s done, we need a searching inquiry into how the power was exercised — an inquiry with consequences.

Commenters at The Last Refuge express their thoughts

Maquis writes,
I’ve been led out of more than one dark lion’s den, and His power and grace are real.
Yes. Touched, calmed, a near transformation from struggling against despair to utter peace, the darkness and chaos remains, yet it no longer inhibits or limits or frightens, the path forward may not even yet be illumined, but one knows with absolute certitude that it is there, that ones steps will be guided, perhaps haltingly, not at the pace or rhythm we might prefer, but there is a path, and a promise, and peace, and, following faithfully without fear, in time, a terror of unimaginable force is past and powerless, and we are free.

Light in the Darkness

Is hope always close by? Do you believe in the sun, even when it is not shining? Do you believe in love, even when you cannot feel it? Do you believe in God, even when He is silent? Do you believe we are not alone? Is there anything more important than hope? Frightened people, people without hope, are easy to control, and governments like to control people! Light and hope always returns! Thanks to Sundance

"In pursuit of cosmological discovery!"

Especially trying to understand more about the beginnings of the universe! William Cole and Ryan Morrison report,
NASA's revolutionary James Webb Space Telescope has begun its one million mile voyage into solar orbit after successful lift off following decades of planning and delays. Jubilant scientists and engineers shouted 'Go Webb, go!' as the telescope module detached from its rocket and floated off into space far above the earth's surface. It is hoped that the observatory, a replacement for the 30-year-old Hubble telescope, will be travelling so far out be able to peer back in time 13.5bn years – to a point within a mere 100m years of the big bang.

"Scholarly inclusivity!"

A way to test scientifically!

Oregon Muse writes,
It used to be that when you got vaccinated against a disease (polio, tetanus, smallpox), that meant you didn't get the disase. But now, we're being told that what vaccines do is to mitigate the effects of the disease if you get it and reduce your chances of being hospitalized. And when you say, no, that's not the way it was understood previously, they insist yes, it was, and I hate this gaslighting! Why can't they just say, well yes, that may have been true, but this is the best we can do under the circumstances.
In other words, we used to have 'strong' vaccines, now we have 'weak' vaccines. And, for that matter, why call them 'vaccines' at all? I think it would be more honest if you called them 'theraputic drugs'. Perhaps 'drugs' isn't the medically correct term, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference between the mNRA vaccines and, say, remdesivir. Or, for that matter, ivermectrin.
So let's do something scientific:
Take one population and get them all vaccinated with the currently available mRNA vaccines, and then boosted however many times you like, and then, for a second population, do not use vaccines. Instead, The focus should be on early-treatment, using one of the early-treatment protocols that other doctors have developed that make us of ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and other drugs, and then see which group is better off in a year.
I think this would be a good test. And then, if they both come out the same, or nearly the same, we should be allowed to select which protocol we think would work better for us, based on our own individual needs and considerations rather than the dictates of Dr. Fauci, the CDC, the pharmaceutical companies, and the medical-industrial complex.

EXCLUSIVE — Dr. Sebastian Gorka Vows ‘Political Battle’ with January 6 Committee Following Phone Records Subpoena

Emma-Jo Morris reports,
Former Deputy Assistant to the President and conservative analyst Dr. Sebastian Gorka is vowing to “go to a political battle” with the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, following the revelation that his phone records were subpoenaed from Verizon.
“No mention was made of any crime I’m alleged to have committed. I was supposed to give a speech that day, which I didn’t give — I didn’t know that’s a crime in America — and the fact is, for Verizon, who of course are capitulating… They’re supposed to dump everything, all the phone number details, the SIM card details, the product registration details for me and my whole family… So if they can do that to a former Deputy Assistant to the President, they can do that to anybody. This is purely about political intimidation of the 74 million Americans that voted for Donald Trump,” Gorka told Breitbart News. “I’ve done nothing wrong. But that’s not the principle. The principle is the U.S. Constitution and the Fourth Amendment and my rights to undue seizure of my property and my information.”
“As a child of the Cold War, let’s be very clear. President Reagan … did bankrupt the Soviet Union. But what he did that was truly the deathblow to the communist ideology of that wicked, evil empire, and what Margaret Thatcher — who I grew up on — what Saint John Paul II did, which was far more important, was to bankrupt them morally, to prove to the world that they were illegitimate. So when you are not afraid, when you speak truthfully, about the extremists, about the radicals, about the fascism of these individuals, about their totalitarian tendencies, that in fact is the most dangerous and that is what they are afraid of,” Gorka said.

The birth of Jesus is well worth celebrating!

Mark Tapscott writes in Hillfaith,
Lots of surveys in recent months indicate growth in the number of “None” Americans, those who claim to have no religious faith. And government at many levels and on multiple fronts increasingly displays a hostility to religious faith and expression.
But even as the Western world becomes more secularized, Jesus is impossible to avoid because, as J. Warner Wallace explains brilliantly and comprehensively in his latest book, Person of Interest, Christ is the single most influential individual who ever lived.
Here are six reasons why that is so that Wallace offers in a recent Fox News piece, based on his book:
Jesus matters because he inspired more literature than any other person in history. More books, scripts and screenplays have been written about Jesus than anyone else. His story has so captured the human imagination that “Christ figures” have been written into non-Christian literature.
He matters because he was the catalyst for the visual arts, inspiring painters and sculptors in every generation, genre, style and nation. No one has affected the arts like Jesus.
He matters because he has been the topic of more songs, hymns and symphonies than any other figure in history. Jesus’s followers innovated and changed the nature of music forever, and musicians and singers in every musical style continue to sing about him.
He matters because his teaching set the standard for moral reform and initiated a worldview that led to the flourishing of education. His followers established monasteries, cathedral schools, and ultimately universities that continue to educate people to this day.
He matters because he established a worldview that encouraged exploration and motivated his followers to investigate the natural revelation of God, resulting in an explosion of scientific discovery, the scientific revolution, and an unparalleled history of excellence in the sciences.
He matters because his influence on spiritual seekers and religious thinkers is so overwhelming that every major world religion either mentions or merges him into their theological system.
I’ve read Person of Interest and I can assure you it is full of facts that you quite likely do not know that demonstrate just how incredibly influential Jesus Christ remains to this day. His birth is well-worth celebrating, regardless of your view of the faith based on His life, death and resurrection.

Should we feel secure?

Paul Gilbert reports,
U.S. leaders have enabled China to fund the rise of its military while presiding over the decline of ours.
Can the U.S. military actually protect our country? We should all have serious doubts.
The United States developed and deployed the atomic bomb in Japan in 1945 to end World War II. Believing such weapons would be the ultimate deterrent, the United States ramped up its nuclear arsenal and enhanced its aircraft and missile delivery systems. After the Soviet Union’s collapse, the United States stood alone as the world’s superpower.
President Richard Nixon opened the door in 1971 to China, which began the latter’s policy of “state-run capitalism.” This set the stage for China’s slow evolution into a world power.
U.S. companies began taking advantage of the China Trade Bill and invested heavily in manufacturing operations there, resulting in disinvestment in the United States and eventually contributing to a trade imbalance favoring China that rose to more than $400 billion a year. Much of that surplus enabled China to build its military.
In an attempt to make up for sequestration, President Trump increased military spending annually by more than $200 billion; however, it may have been too little, too late. The greater funding did enable the U.S. military to play catch-up in some fundamental areas, like restoring munitions levels, maintaining and refurbishing aircraft and ships, and setting aside funds for updating the nuclear arsenal. Yet some tangible results would not be realized for a decade. Although subject to a great deal of criticism, Trump also had the foresight to propose, establish, and fund the Space Force to prepare the United States to compete with China in an emerging battleground.
While the U.S. military “brain trust” was making improvements to night-vision optics, armored personnel carriers, single-purpose jet fighters and bombers and “next generation” aircraft carriers that cannot reliably lift aircraft and armaments to the flight deck, launch the aircraft, or arrest aircraft upon landing, China developed a larger and better equipped standing army; a larger operational navy, including carriers that actually function; and an expanded infrastructure that increases its potential control of islands and countries abutting the South China Sea. Perhaps most ominous was China’s progress in hypersonic missile development and aircraft flown by artificial intelligence.
There are numerous reports that while the U.S.S. Gerald Ford won’t be fully operational until at least 2023, China has already developed hypersonic missiles that could destroy the Ford today, with little or no warning. While the United States has developed piloted, multiple specialty aircraft, war gaming indicates China’s comparable planes, flown by AI, will beat piloted aircraft every time.
China has strategically positioned itself for eventual control of the South China Sea with the ultimate prize of netting Taiwan, and the United States is in no position to capably defend Taiwan in any way that would not lead to an embarrassing defeat of our military. Published reports indicate the outcome of every gaming scenario has China prevailing.
Lastly, China has apparently developed its hypersonic missile program to the point that they are nuclear-capable and their paths can be controlled in a low-earth orbit to hit very close to their targets. Remarkably, the U.S. intelligence community admitted they “did not see this coming.”
Even worse, it was subsequently disclosed that a nuclear-equipped hypersonic missile exploding over the United States could create an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that would effectively destroy the nation’s electrical grid, which our “leaders” have failed to harden. Such an attack would immediately put us back into the mid-1800s, possibly causing more than 300 million Americans to eventually perish.
If Taiwan becomes “one” with China, China will control 70 percent of the world’s microchip production, 70 percent of the mining and 90 percent of the rare earth elements; and up to 90 percent of certain medications, many life-sustaining. That could make China the world’s superpower, and the United States its serf.

Furious customers are suing Hertz for $529.7 million

Minda Zetlin reports,
Furious Customers Are Suing Hertz for $529.7 Million.
More than 180 Hertz customers are suing the car rental company in bankruptcy court, seeking damages of just under $529.7 million. Most of these customers were stopped by police, and sometimes arrested, for driving Hertz cars that they had legally rented.
According to their filings, for years Hertz has falsely reported that its cars were stolen as part of its regular business practice, "ensnaring its customers in accusations of car theft, throwing them in jail on felony charges, prosecuting them, burdening them with criminal records that impact their livelihoods, and separating them from their family and loved ones."
Why would Hertz claim that its cars were stolen when legitimate renters were driving them? Believe it or not, the filing claims this is a cost-cutting measure. In some cases, the company simply misplaces a car or a rental contract and doesn't know where the car is. Rather than upgrade its malfunctioning inventory systems or conduct its own investigation when cars are unaccounted for, Hertz simply reports these cars as stolen, the filing claims. The plaintiffs say the company is "effectively using the police, criminal justice system, and taxpayers to subsidize inventory control for a private corporation." The unfortunate renters who happen to be driving those cars are collateral damage.

The vicar's wife speaks out!

Fighting against leftist narratives

Blake Masters is running for the U.S. Senate in Arizona in 2022. Here is a brief excerpt from an interview he did recently.
Blake Masters: I think we’re very close to a two-tier justice system, if we’re not there already. Look how differently loyalists and dissidents are punished today. The Kyle Rittenhouse case was simple. The ruling class hated that a young man defended himself with an AR-15 because it contradicts their official narrative. And so they did everything they could to punish Kyle. The FBI literally withheld high-resolution version of the footage from Kyle’s lawyers, because it basically clearly exonerated Kyle and they found that inconvenient. Now I think the jury’s decision to acquit Kyle of all charges showed that you can still get sort of a fair trial in America, that there’s hope. But again, that only happened because in this case, there happened to be extremely clear video evidence in his favor. If there weren’t, Kyle would be in jail for life. So this case is a wake-up call. It’s crazy that Rittenhouse, and not his attackers, was on trial at all. Contrast that to how the BLM and Antifa looters and rioters who committed violent mayhem during the summer of 2020 – nothing happened to them! And on the off-chance one of them did get arrested, then-Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris was there with her bail fund, just waiting to bail them out. Meanwhile, the January 6 protestors, many of whom were not violent at all, are treated like terrorists, with some being held without trial in solitary confinement and others getting sentenced to many years in prison. If we don’t do something now, the rule of law will soon be gone forever. Anyone who questions the left’s narrative is going to be hunted down. I truly believe that. That’s what we’re fighting against.

Katie Hopkins pretends to be a man named Chris Witty and gives us an update on Omicron!

Where do you stand?

Jim Kuntsler writes,
It’s Dr. Fauci who is responsible for the emergency use authorization on the mRNA “vaccines” that may have killed hundreds of thousands more Americans — based on the CDC’s VAERS system and statistical analysis of its inherent under-reporting at only 2.2 percent of all actual events— and you can add multiples more in non-fatal adverse reactions, including permanent disabilities. It’s Dr. Fauci who finagled the inadequate and botched trials of the mRNA vaccines in order to rush them into use. And now it’s Dr. Fauci who wants to vaxx up all the children in America, despite evidence that the mRNA shots permanently disable children’s innate natural immune systems and can cause lasting heart, blood vessel, brain, and reproductive damage, and also despite the fact that few children are susceptible to serious Covid illness in the first place.
The omicron moment may be the power-mad little weasel’s last stand. Reports so far indicate that omicron is a mild form of the virus. The one death reported to date did not include any information about the patient’s co-morbidities. For all we know, it was a motorcycle wreck with an omicron-positive label slapped on.
Dr. Fauci is now warning that America’s hospitals will be overwhelmed (and that it will be the fault of the unvaxxed). Consider this: He predicted the same thing for the first wave of the virus in the winter of 2020 and then the giant emergency hospital set-up in New York’s convention center was never used, nor was the US naval hospital ship brought up for Covid duty. Consider also: going forward, there may be more deaths from the delayed pernicious effects of the vaxxes — namely, the spike proteins which are now observed to linger in the organs and blood vessels as long as fifteen months after the shot — than deaths from the Covid-19 virus itself.
By the way, while Dr. Anthony Fauci may represent the leadership of the corrupt US public health bureaucracy, we cannot let the medical establishment itself off-the-hook for this epic fiasco of crisis mis-management. There are roughly a million doctors in America, and all but a tiny fraction of them have gone along with Dr. Fauci’s wrongful and harmful edicts. The doctors were the ones who flushed sick people out of their ERs without treatment. The doctors had to be forced by court orders to administer useful non-vaxx treatments to sick patients. The doctors continue to administer remdesivir despite its obvious toxicity and uselessness. US doctors went along with the lockdowns and the destruction of livelihoods, households, and futures. Doctors appear to support vaxx “passports” and other coercive measures. And now US doctors are going along with the malevolent effort to vaxx-up all the kids.
Plenty of ordinary citizens are furious over the insidious and insane incursions of the political Wokery hitched to the Covid emergency — the race and gender hustles, the efforts to rig elections, the absurd spending programs aimed at countless grifting operations, the disastrous monetary inflation, and the invasion of opportunists from all over the world across our border with Mexico. Even at Christmas time, with all its transient preoccupations, it’s not too much to ask: where do you stand?

Melania Trump launches new NFT and blockchain venture to benefit children in foster care

"If we want the next generation to embrace capitalism, they must see it as being synonymous with freedom!"

Buck Throckmorton writes,
the present libertarian/capitalist attitude toward tyranny is that it is perfectly acceptable to suppress personal liberty so long as the tyranny has been outsourced to monopolies in the private sector - monopolies who can crush all competition and dissent in a manner that the government is prohibited from doing.
For young adults in their 20s who have only seen the freedom-smothering power of our current oligopoly, they might well think more government control of the economy is preferable to the FANG executives determining what speech and commerce is allowable.
If “capitalism” means the government crushes small businesses in the name of pandemic safety, thus allowing the FANGs to capture that business and grow even richer and more powerful, then I oppose that form of “capitalism.”
If “capitalism” means corporate Perhaps the opposition to capitalism is simply an opposition to the concentration of power. Let’s break up that concentration of power to save capitalism.executives enrich themselves by shuttering American manufacturing plants and replacing American jobs with slave labor at state-controlled Chinese companies, then yes, I oppose that form of “capitalism” too. Here’s the deal, one can be opposed to state-control of the economy and one can also be opposed to a private sector cartel controlling the economy.
In fact, to stanch the growing appeal of socialism, it is necessary to re-introduce the idea of competitive capitalism. We can break the big non-competitive monopolies into small companies that have to compete. And if they’re still able to exercise monopoly power, they can be broken up even further.

Lee Harvey Oswald was in close contact with Soviet officials in the weeks preceding the assassination of JFK!

Jack Davis reports that some documents have been released that have been kept secret since the assassination of JFK.
Although the Biden administration had at one time said it would release all existing documents, it decided to hold some back with a possible release next December, according to Politico.
New documents released by the National Archives and Records Administration support the narrative that Lee Harvey Oswald was in close contact with officials of the former Soviet Union in the weeks preceding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Crimes against humanity!

Leo Hohmann reports,
A group of lawyers, activists and whistleblowers that includes former Pfizer Vice President Dr. Michael Yeadon filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court at the Hague against Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Bill and Melinda Gates, the chief executives of Big Pharma “vaccine” manufacturers, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum, alleging crimes against humanity.
After repeated unsuccessful attempts to raise a case with the British Court system, the applicants filed their complaint with “the utmost urgency” to the International Criminal Court at the Hague, Netherlands.
Among the many allegations are:
Massive short-term damage and death, with at least 395,049 reported adverse reactions to COVID “vaccines” in the UK alone [and more than 950,000 more in the U.S.]
The applicants maintain that “the suppression of safe and effective alternative treatments for Covid-19 amounts to murder and warrants a full investigation by the court.” They noted that besides censorship of online information on and promotion of these alternative treatments, “some academic journals are blocking the publication of studies showing the effectiveness of drugs such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.”

Covid vaccine effects on athletes!

Real Science reports,
It is definitely not normal for young athletes to suffer from cardiac arrests or to die while playing their sport, but this year it is happening. All of these heart issues and deaths come shortly after they got a COVID vaccine.

Not enough children are being born!

Bonnie Chernin writes,
n a recent interview, billionaire Elon Musk stated that the most serious problem we face as a society is that not enough children are being born. I can't emphasize this enough. There are not enough people. And I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birthrate and the rapidly declining birthrate.
He's right. The statistics are grim: in 2020, the Centers for Disease Control reported that the U.S. birth rate is plummeting and is the lowest it has been since 1909. The 2020 Census data show that population growth is the slowest since 1930.

DeSantis takes action to fight critical race theory in Florida Schools and to stop illegal aliens from being transported to Florida

So, what did Governor Ron DeSantis do this week? Jeff Reynolds reports,
announced that no licenses will be issued or renewed with respect to any child-care agency that provides services to illegal aliens transported to Florida from outside the state.
“If you sent [them] to Delaware or Martha’s Vineyard, that border would be secure the next day,” DeSantis said Friday. To that end, he allocated $8 million in last week’s state budget to fly the migrants back to elite Democrat enclaves, including Washington, DC.

Gov. Ron DeSantis introduced a new bill Wednesday aiming to fight critical race theory in Florida schools.
“Our legislation will defund any money for K-12 going to CRT consultants,” DeSantis said. “No taxpayer dollars should be used to teach our kids to hate our country or hate each other.”

The left is worried!

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
They are not worried about 2 million foreign nationals crashing the border in a single year, without vaccinations during a pandemic. Yet it seems insurrectionary for a government simply to nullify its own immigration laws.
The Left expects to lose power over the next two years—both because of the way it gained and used it, and because of its radical, top-down agendas that never had any public support.
After gaining control of both houses of Congress and the presidency—with an obsequious media and the support of Wall Street, Silicon Valley, higher education, popular culture, entertainment and professional sports—the Left has managed in just 11 months to alienate a majority of voters.
The nation has been wracked by unprecedented crime and nonenforcement of the borders. Leftist district attorneys either won’t indict criminals or let them out of jails or both.
Illegal immigration and inflation are soaring. Deliberate cuts in gas and oil production helped to spike fuel prices.
They are fearful and angry not because democracy does not work, but because it does despite their own media and political efforts to warp it.
When a party becomes hijacked by radicals and uses almost any means necessary to gain and use power for agendas that few Americans support, then average voters express their disapproval.
That reality apparently terrifies an elite—which then claims any system that allows the people to vote against the Left is not people power at all.

Vaccine side effects

Wayne Allyn Root reports,
All over America, and all over the world, cardiac arrest, heart inflammation and heart attack deaths are exploding. Young athletes are dropping right on the field; star soccer players in Europe are dropping dead in the middle of games; referees, coaches and even fans in the stands are having cardiac emergencies. It's something no one has ever seen before. It's an epidemic.
What do all these victims have in common? They've all been vaccinated.
I believe that these are COVID-19 vaccine-related injuries overwhelming ERs and ICUs. The very illnesses that are most prevalent in this mysterious health emergency — heart attack deaths, cardiac arrest, strokes, blood clots, multiple organ failure — are all the same COVID-19 vaccine side effects listed in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
But it's not just in the USA. It's happening everywhere. In the U.K., the Evening Standard newspaper reports up to 300,000 British citizens are facing sudden heart related illness and cardiac arrest.
What's the truth? All anyone with a shred of credibility, morality and decency have to look at are a few key factors.
First, the Food and Drug Administration has reportedly requested 75 years to fully release the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data. If I told you to "Trust me, I'm selling the world's best health tonic, but I can't disclose any of the test results or ingredients for 75 years, until everyone asking is dead," would you trust me? Would you buy what I was selling? Would you inject it into your body
Second, a federal judge demanded some of that data be released immediately by Pfizer. Just in the first few pages, detailing results from just the first few weeks of vaccines, Pfizer admits in their own data that their vaccine was linked to fatal outcomes for 1,223 Americans and produced 42,086 reports of adverse effects. Among the most prominent adverse effects were heart attacks and heart problems.
Third, the VAERS system is reporting a number of adverse effects possibly linked to the vaccines — including tens of thousands of hospitalizations, crippling injuries and permanent disabilities. That's just in America. The EU numbers are even higher.

Will Adam Schiff ever be held criminally responsible?

Sean Davis reports,
Democrat Adam Schiff doctored text messages between Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan during Monday's Jan. 6 hearings, an investigation by The Federalist shows.
Oops, he did it again. After leaking fake Donald Trump, Jr. emails, fabricating the transcript of a 2019 phone call between former President Donald Trump and Ukraine’s president, and lying about his interactions with the so-called whistleblower behind House Democrats’ first impeachment of Trump, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is now running the same con against a fellow lawmaker. During a hearing Monday night on the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Adam Schiff claimed to have proof that a member of Congress texted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to instruct former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

Robber Strangles Pizza Shop Owner During Robbery, Pizza Owner's 14 Year Old Son Shoots A Hole In Robber's Face

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The 14-year-old son of a Philadelphia pizza shop employee shot an armed robbery suspect who started choking one of his parents, police say. Police say the series of incidents unfolded around 9:30 p.m. Thursday when three men robbed the CVS pharmacy at North Broad and Spring Garden in the Spring Garden section of the city. Moments later, police say at least one of those men went a block away to rob the Bold Pizza Shop at 15th and Spring Garden. Employees say the man forcibly reached over the counter and tried to take cash from the register. A struggle ensued between an employee and the robbery suspect when the offender started to strangle the victim. The victim's 14-year-old son grabbed a handgun from under the counter and shot the offender one time in the face, police said.

NFL funding groups that advocate defunding police!

Olivia G reports,
The National Football League’s “Inspire Change” partners, which receive financial backing from the multibillion-dollar league, include multiple groups that have openly advocated for defunding the police, a Fox News Digital review of the program found.
Groups who have received funds as part of “Inspire Change,” the NFL’s social justice initiative, include the Vera Institute of Justice, the Oregon Justice Resource Center and the Community Justice Exchange. All three of those groups support defunding or abolishing the police, a review of their public statements shows.
While the NFL’s general support of social justice causes is widely known, the fact that the league is propping up groups trying to defund police departments has not been previously reported.

Gorsuch: "Each of the currently available vaccines has depended upon abortion-derived fetal cell lines in its production or testing."

Katie Yoder reports,
In an order that drew a sharply worded dissent by Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to block New York’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement, which allows exemptions for medical but not religious reasons.
Gorsuch said the ruling violates the plaintiffs’ religious liberty rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. “The Free Exercise Clause protects not only the right to hold unpopular religious beliefs inwardly and secretly. It protects the right to live out those beliefs publicly in ‘the performance of (or abstention from) physical acts,’” Gorsuch wrote in his 14-page dissent.
Two groups of health care workers, several of them Catholics, filed emergency petitions asking the court to intervene. The court decided 6 to 3 to reject the requests. Three conservatives — Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett M. Kavanaugh — joined liberal justices Stephen G. Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor in the majority, which did not issue an explanation. Conservative Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. joined Gorsuch in his dissent. Justice Clarence Thomas, another conservative, agreed that he would have blocked the mandate, without specifying why.
Gorsuch shared the stories of two Catholic doctors who objected to the mandate. “These applicants are not ‘anti-vaxxers’ who object to all vaccines,” Gorsuch urged. “Instead, the applicants explain, they cannot receive a COVID–19 vaccine because their religion teaches them to oppose abortion in any form, and because each of the currently available vaccines has depended upon abortion-derived fetal cell lines in its production or testing.”

"The Justice Department is actively concealing the truth about police brutality on January 6!"

An American Greatness writer explains,
Law enforcement deployed explosive devices known as “flashbangs,” which emit a powerful burst of light and sound to temporarily stun the intended victim, into the crowd around 1:15 p.m. on January 6, just moments after Trump finished up his speech at the Ellipse less than two miles away. Police also used rubber bullets, tear gas, batons, and in some cases, their own fists to assault protesters.
Prosecutors know this is fact—and it’s precisely why the Justice Department is desperate to keep any video footage or testimony that portrays these vicious assaults out of the public eye. As I have reported, the Justice Department and U.S. Capitol Police want roughly 14,000 hours of surveillance video captured by security cameras on January 6 to remain under protective orders. The trove is considered “highly sensitive” government material by Biden’s Justice Department; even defendants are strictly limited as to how they can view this classified footage used as evidence against them.
Much of it would show a sustained attack on peaceful Americans by D.C.-based law enforcement agencies. But as trials get underway and long-delayed discovery is finally produced by the government, more evidence of egregious, in several cases, criminal, police misconduct, is emerging.
As the January 6 House select committee accelerates its illegitimate legal pursuit of Trump and his associates under the guise of revealing the “truth” about the Capitol protest, the Justice Department is actively concealing the truth, especially related to police brutality that day. The only question now is whether federal judges in Washington will continue to allow the Biden regime to get away with it.

Say no to totalitarianism and fear!

Today is the 230th anniversary of the signing of the Bill of Rights. A writer at American Greatness wonders if we have surrendered our right to liberty. 80 years ago President Roosevelt declared,
“No threat or danger can make us yield our freedom guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.”
The American Greatness writer believes
Roosevelt was wrong. Though Hitler and Benito Mussolini couldn’t make us surrender our Bill of Rights, the fear of COVID-19 did.
“There comes a time when you do have to give up what you consider your individual right of making your own decision for the greater good of society,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, audaciously professed.
Fauci is wrong, especially about the greater good. The vaccines’ failure to stop COVID-19’s transmission has eliminated any real public benefit. “We didn’t have vaccines that block transmission,” admitted Bill Gates, a Fauci comrade and financer of COVID-19 vaccines.
Compulsory policies have failed, as 400 studies have shown. “Nearly all governments have attempted compulsory measures to control the virus, but no government can claim success. The research indicates that mask mandates, lockdowns, and school closures have had no discernible impact on virus trajectories,” the Brownstone Institute reported.
Fauci and others suppressed effective early treatment options, such as existing cheap antivirals. The government has ignored nearly 20,000 vaccine deaths and a million injuries, according to OpenVAERS.com.
This year Americans can honor the Bill of Rights’ 230th anniversary by having the courage to say no to totalitarianism and fear and yes to their rights. Americans must tolerate each other’s vaccine decisions. They must demand early treatment options for COVID-19, Fauci’s removal, and an investigation into the federal medical bureaucracy.

Do you believe Communist China has not had a single Covid death since April 24, 2020?

Mark Steyn reports,
So far the only world leader to end Covid is - oh, go on, take a wild guess...
Yes, everyone's favorite public-health genius, Chairman Xi!
By April 23rd last year, China had reported a cumulative total of 4,636 Covid deaths.
On April 24th 2020, the daily total fell to zero deaths, and amazingly there has been not a single Covid fatality since.
What is the secret of China's stunning success in licking Covid? A healthy diet? Torturing Uighurs? Threatening Taiwan? Disrupting the global supply chain? Taking over the Commonwealth island by island?

Have many physicians suspended critical thinking?

Steve Karp, M.D. writes,
All things COVID will eventually pass. Few things last forever. But at some point, physicians may pay a price for their poor judgment in suspending critical thinking. The question is, who will judge them?
The dilemma for physicians’ seeming lack of judgment does not lie in the future since the future is now, represented by VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). Significant adverse events and deaths due to the vaccine are getting harder to hide, or hide from.

There’s no more talk of special prosecutors and no suggestions that Putin is rigging elections. Not when a lobbyist for a Swiss company owned by the Putin regime is signing the checks. There are no more of Schumer’s “ominous questions” when the answers are all too clear.

End American complicity with forced labor and genocide!

Anders Corr reports,
It’s time for American corporations, including Apple, to improve their ethical practices. They should not be involved with any country, government, or political party that is committing even a single genocide, much less three. China is that country. Beijing is that government. The CCP is that party. End American complicity with forced labor and genocide now.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, according to secret documents reportedly seen by The Information, inked a $275 billion giveaway in 2016 that explains the tech company’s success in China.
The Chinese market is no small part of Apple’s current approximately $3 trillion market capitalization. This makes it the world’s biggest company. So the Apple CEO could be incentivized to give away its technology and ignore human rights abuse to maximize his bonuses in the short term while not only selling out Apple shareholders, but American democracy to boot.

Chris Cuomo's CNN producer is accused of luring mom and nine-year-old daughter to his Vermont ski home to 'train' the minor to be sexually submissive telling them a 'woman is a woman regardless of her age'

James Gordon reports,
A CNN producer for fired anchor Chris Cuomo's has been charged in a plot to lure a mother and her young daughter to come to his home to 'train' her to be sexually submissive.
A Vermont grand jury indicted 44-year-old Griffin, from Stamford, Connecticut, of attempting to entice the girls to engage in sexual activity.
According to the indictment, between April and July of 2020, Griffin utilized the messaging applications Kik and Google Hangouts to communicate with people purporting to be parents of minor daughters, conveying to them, among other ideas, that a 'woman is a woman regardless of her age,' and that women should be sexually subservient and inferior to men,' according to a statement from the Department of Justice on the case.

No cure!

What evil looks like!

Feeble!

Cal Thomas writes,
Look how different the world appears after Donald Trump left office. Biden ordered a precipitous withdrawal from Afghanistan and all the administration could do is brag about what an efficient job it did in moving so many troops out so quickly, despite the 13 U.S. service members killed in the last days and the translators and Americans left behind.
China for the first time is building a naval base in the Atlantic Ocean, off the African coast. Beijing is also ratcheting up military flights over Taiwan and again threatening to invade the democratic island nation. Biden’s response is to announce that he will not send government officials to the 2022 Beijing Olympics. That isn’t likely to put fear into the heart of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Iran appears to be proceeding with its program to build nuclear weapons. Why shouldn’t it, given the belief by the religious regime that Allah wants them to have one in pursuit of the destruction of Israel and eventually the “great Satan,” which would be America.
Evil must be opposed, or it grows in nations, as well as in individuals. The crime wave in America is partly the result of soft-on-crime judges, prosecutors, and district attorneys, and of calls to defund the police. Criminals naturally see this weakness as an opportunity to loot and kill, fearing few, if any, consequences.
If Putin invades Ukraine, if China invades Taiwan, if Iran finishes a nuclear bomb, if North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un decides to move against South Korea, all of them may see this as the ideal opportunity to engage in behavior they might think twice about if America had a strong president.
Just as criminals tend to avoid places where there is effective security and bullies prey on people they perceive as unable or unwilling to fight back, so, too, do leaders of “evil empires” feel emboldened when they conclude they will not be effectively opposed by the “strongest nation in the world,” a nation that under Biden is increasingly seen by our adversaries as feeble.

The squad's outsized power

David Harsanyi writes,
The “squad,” which is surely “gaining adherents and intensity” as moderate Democrats shed seats due to the party’s progressive turn, already has outsized power. It can stop bills right now. A few months ago, it nearly sunk funding for Israel’s defensive Iron Dome system, perhaps the only spending that squad members passionately oppose. (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was in tears because she had abstained from cutting off spending on a system that saves thousands of lives.)
The Biden administration already uses Ocasio-Cortez’s branding for its climate change agenda, and virtually every Democrat defends the administration’s every move. These are consequential politicians treated with reverence by the press.

A name we will be hearing a lot in the months to come: Julian Assange!

Sundance reports,
Julian Assange was not a threat to Donald Trump, but he was a threat to those who attempted to stop Donald Trump. In 2017, the DC system was reacting to a presidency they did not control. As an outcome, the Office of the President was being managed and influenced by some with ulterior motives.
In short, Peter Strzok was a profoundly overzealous James Bond wannabe, who acted as a bridge between the CIA and the FBI. The perfect type of FBI career agent for 2016’s CIA Director John Brennan to utilize.
As soon as the Mueller probe ended, on April 11th, 2019, a planned and coordinated effort between the U.K. and U.S. was executed; Julian Assange was forcibly arrested and removed from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and the EDVA indictment was unsealed (link).
As a person who has researched this three year fiasco; including the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking/interference narrative: “17 intelligence agencies”, Joint Analysis Report (JAR) needed for Obama’s anti-Russia narrative in December ’16; and then a month later the ridiculously political Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) in January ’17; this timing against Assange is too coincidental.
It doesn’t take a deep researcher to see the aligned Deep State motive to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes, and that narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.
♦ This is critical. The Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central element to the Russia interference narrative in the U.S. election. This claim is the fulcrum point that structurally underpins the entire Trump-Russia collusion narrative. However, this important claim is directly disputed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, as outlined during the Dana Rohrabacher interview, and by Julian Assange’s on-the-record statements.
Julian Assange was/is the only person with direct knowledge of how Wikileaks gained custody of the DNC emails; and Assange has claimed he has evidence it was not from a hack.
This Russian “hacking” claim was ultimately so important to the CIA, FBI, DOJ, ODNI and U.K Intelligence apparatus…. Well, right there is the obvious motive to shut Assange down as soon as intelligence officials knew the Mueller report was going to be public. And that is exactly what the Fourth Branch of government did.

Parental responsibility

Heather Mac Donald writes,
On December 3, a district attorney in Michigan filed involuntary manslaughter charges against the parents of Ethan Crumbley. The 15-year-old Crumbley allegedly killed four fellow students during a shooting rampage at his Oxford, Michigan high school on November 30. The prosecutor based her indictment of Crumbley’s parents on the fact that they had allowed Ethan to access a legally purchased handgun and ought to have known that the boy was primed to kill his classmates. The press, Democratic politicians, and gun control advocates greeted the homicide charges against the Crumbley parents with ecstatic approbation.
When black juveniles perpetrate street violence, the press and public officials almost never ask: where were the parents? The less involved a parent is in a child’s life, the less society expects of him. These double standards may have a benign intent, but they enable a cultural dysfunction whose effects are thousands of times more lethal than school shootings.
Eighty-eight percent of all interracial violence between whites and blacks is committed by blacks against whites, yet only in those rare instances of white-on-black crime will the race of the assailant be reported. Coverage of the killing of six holiday celebrants at a Wisconsin Christmas parade on November 21 by a man who plowed his car into the crowd faded out after the police released the suspect’s identity: Darrell Brooks is black (and on the record as anti-white). Had a white person (let alone one with such a trail of racial animosity) driven into a Martin Luther King Day celebration, the round-the-clock coverage would have lasted for weeks.
These double standards help no one. Society should have a colorblind norm of parental responsibility and of the duty to obey the law. If the Crumbley parents are found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, there are many more parents out there whose passivity in the face of likely lawlessness deserves equally strict scrutiny.
