Got any biases?

Kendra Cherry writes,
While people like to believe that they are rational and logical, the fact is that people are continually under the influence of cognitive biases. These biases distort thinking, influence beliefs, and sway the decisions and judgments that people make each and every day.
The following are just a few of the different cognitive biases that have a powerful influence on how you think, how you feel, and how you behave.
The confirmation bias is the tendency to listen more often to information that confirms our existing beliefs. Through this bias, people tend to favor information that reinforces the things they already think or believe.
The hindsight bias is a common cognitive bias that involves the tendency to see events, even random ones, as more predictable than they are. It's also commonly referred to as the "I knew it all along" phenomenon.
The anchoring bias is the tendency to be overly influenced by the first piece of information that we hear.
The misinformation effect is the tendency for memories to be heavily influenced by things that happened after the actual event itself. A person who witnesses a car accident or crime might believe that their recollection is crystal clear, but researchers have found that memory is surprisingly susceptible to even very subtle influences.
The actor-observer bias is the tendency to attribute our actions to external influences and other people's actions to internal ones. The way we perceive others and how we attribute their actions hinges on a variety of variables, but it can be heavily influenced by whether we are the actor or the observer in a situation.
The false consensus effect is the tendency people have to overestimate how much other people agree with their own beliefs, behaviors, attitudes, and values.
The halo effect is the tendency for an initial impression of a person to influence what we think of them overall. Also known as the "physical attractiveness stereotype" or the "what is beautiful is 'good' principle" we are either influenced by or use the halo to influence others almost every day.
The self-serving bias is a tendency for people tend to give themselves credit for successes but lay the blame for failures on outside causes. When you do well on a project, you probably assume that it’s because you worked hard. But when things turn out badly, you are more likely to blame it on circumstances or bad luck.
The availability heuristic is the tendency to estimate the probability of something happening based on how many examples readily come to mind.
The optimism bias is a tendency to overestimate the likelihood that good things will happen to us while underestimating the probability that negative events will impact our lives. Essentially, we tend to be too optimistic for our own good.

Why Progressives ruin cities!

Johan Wennström writes about a new book on homelessness by Michael Shellenberger. The book is entitled,
San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities.
Progressives value authority and loyalty when it comes to anyone whom they define as a victim. “They’re the voices that should be centered,” as one activist says in the book. Progressives, writes Shellenberger, thus “insist on taking orders . . . from the homeless” and even from criminals, and support efforts to decriminalize or lower the cost of many antisocial behaviors, from public camping to drug dealing. Progressives also value the sanctity of perceived victims, which leads them to reject involuntary drug and psychiatric treatment.

Do we really need Sherlock Holmes on this one?

Daniel Oliver writes,
The Sherlock Holmes question of the week is: Why did the New York Times finally admit that the Hunter Biden laptop was genuine? Here are five possible answers:
Roger Kimball suggests it’s a prelude to Joe Biden’s own people removing him from the Oval Office.
So why did the Times confess their error on the laptop story? Who knows? But it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to know they’re up to no good.

Can we learn these five historical truths?

Victor Davis Hanson is opposed to
NATO aircraft to establish a no-fly zone above Ukraine to stop Russian bombing of Ukrainian cities.
That is a terrible idea. Russian planes can still launch missiles from the nearby airspace of Russia and Belarus. No nation in history has declared a no-fly zone against an adversarial nuclear power.
Second, regime change. There has been a lot of wild talk—from Joe Biden and various U.S. senators on down—about removing or assassinating Vladimir Putin to achieve “regime change” in Russia.
Third, nation building. Western powers—for a time—can “nation build” abroad. But recreating nations in our image requires terrible cost in blood and treasure.
Fourth, moral hysteria. The United States does not have a good record of turning wars into moral crusades by branding our allies divine and our enemies satanic.
That Ukraine is morally in the right and certainly deserves Western help does not mean that all Russians should be demonized or an often-corrupt Ukrainian government that just suspended its opposition parties should be deified.
Fifth, the Russian military abroad. The Russian army is historically unbeatable on its home soil. Charles XII of Sweden, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Adolf Hitler all wrecked their once indomitable militaries once they crossed into Russia.
Ukraine can defeat Putin’s expeditionary army if the United States and its NATO allies increase aid, do not embrace no-fly zones or other provocative trajectories to World War III, cease crazy talk of killing or removing Putin, stop whipping up hatred of all things Russian, and remember that history was never on Putin’s side when he invaded Ukraine.

Do parents have the right to shape their kids' curriculum?

C. Bradley Thompson writes,
The family is the most exclusive private association known to man, and, as Plato knew, it is the single greatest obstacle to collectivism. Families are inward looking units that resist government-imposed homogenization, and they are an inherently conservative cultural force that seek to preserve the private manners and mores of each and every particular family. Worse: families are the origin of private property, the division of labor, inequality, and gender roles. The family is a naturally occurring social unit that has always stood against the State in its attempt to collectivize the community for either reactionary or progressive ends. Figuratively speaking, every family is protected by a virtual “No Trespassing” sign barring entry.
Nowhere was this view stated more clearly than in a 1973 keynote address to The Association for Childhood Education International, delivered by the Harvard educational psychiatrist, Chester M. Pierce, who said:
Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our Founding Fathers, toward his parents, toward our elected officials, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you, teachers, to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future.[3]
The schools have thus become surrogate parents concerned with child rearing—not by default, as they typically argue, but by design. The proponents of government schooling actively seek this role. They consider themselves to be your child’s “second” parent. We know this because they have said so. The Chicago Teachers’ Union tweeted recently, “We fight for your children like they are own, because when we teach, they are.”[4] In 2021, parents all over the United States were told by the Education Deep State that they have no rights to determine what their children will or should learn in the government schools. A headline in The Washington Post summed up how Big Ed views the role of parents in the education of their children: “Parents claim they have the right to shape their kids’ curriculum. They don’t”![5]
As I wrote about in “A Declaration of War,” the Biden administration mobilized and unleashed the full power of the federal government’s National Security State against parents (now labeled as “domestic terrorists”) who were protesting at local school board meetings around the country against Critical Race Theory, Critical Gender Theory, pornography in school libraries, mask mandates, vaccine requirements, and remote learning. The parents’ real crime was, of course, their attempt to reclaim control over what is being taught to their children in the government schools.
The time has come for the American people to address the fundamental question of our age: who is responsible for the education of your children, you or the State? Put differently the question is: do you want to live in a free society where parents control the education of their children, or do you want to live in an authoritarian society where the State controls the education of your children?

Hunter's laptop

Why aren't the FDA and CDC informing the public about documented adverse events after mRNA injections?

David Gortler asks,
Why Aren’t The FDA And CDC Informing The Public About Documented Adverse Events After mRNA Injections?
While Americans still haven’t been given full access to the full Pfizer “Comirnaty” license application, we do have access to the Food and Drug Administration’s medical officer review.
This comparatively spartan 107-page FDA review document purportedly contained everything the FDA believed was important to release to the public from the original Pfizer application of 329,000 pages. The FDA review conspicuously notes “clinically important serious adverse reactions [included] anaphylaxis and myocarditis/pericarditis”— that is, severe allergic reactions and inflammation of the heart and or the sac containing the heart, respectively.
Likewise, Moderna’s “Spikevax” vaccine was given its Emergency Use Authorization in late 2020, and was fully approved by the FDA on January 31, 2022. Following approximately a month of time to redact its review from “trade secrets,” the FDA released an even leaner 30-page review. Like the Pfizer vaccine, there were clear indications of myocarditis and pericarditis in the initial study, demonstrating the potential for risk going forward.

Their moral and scientific authority will never be the same.

Charles Tourot writes,
Looking back on two years of the Pandemic, which moments -- which decisions, which deceptions, which outrages -- merit the COVID Hall of Shame? It’s not an easy choice.
Candidate 1: The death sentence for nursing home patients.
It was known from the outset that COVID was most often fatal for elderly people in poor health. A locus of fatalities in March 2020 was a single nursing home in Washington State -- it was right there on the Johns Hopkins website. Yet, Democrat governors Wolf, Cuomo, Witmer, Murphy, and Newsom ordered chronically-ill senior citizens with COVID discharged to nursing homes. The staff inevitably carried the illness to others during their normal course of duty. The only apt analogy is the distribution of smallpox-ridden blankets given to Native Americans by the British during the French and Indian War. In July 2020, the .7% of Pennsylvania’s population who were nursing-home residents accounted for 69% of COVID deaths there.
Candidate 2: Demonization of existing drugs that treat COVID
When some enterprising soul discovers an existing treatment for a new health threat, he or she usually becomes an overnight hero, especially when the treatment is safe, cheap, and widely available. When President Trump spoke of the promise of hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID-19, the national media scoffed, because they considered Trump an ignoramus. When physicians who had prescribed hydroxychloroquine safely to prevent and treat malaria and chronic diseases for six decades championed its off-label use to treat a potentially fatal malady for which no other treatment existed, they were ostracized, and their medical licenses threatened. The hapless Neil Cavuto declared on Fox News: “this stuff will kill you.” He couldn’t have been more wrong. I know a medical professional who contracted COVID early on. She told me the hydroxychloroquine she took regularly for another illness saved her life. The drug proved effective in multiple studies when given early in the course of the disease, but its use was never adopted. Many died needlessly as a result.
The same is true of ivermectin, the “horse de-wormer,” whose inventors won the 2015 Nobel Prize for medicine for creating the anti-parasitic drug -- not for horses, but for humans (Human medications are routinely given to livestock). Why would an anti-parasitic prevent or treat COVID? We don’t know -- but evidence shows it does. With no other treatment available, why wouldn’t off-label use of a safe, inexpensive drug be encouraged? Why ban its use and threaten colleagues who prescribed it? A loved one of mine survived COVID because of early intervention with ivermectin. She still feels the effects of a long bout with the disease, but she knew in two days she would beat it. (Her $15 prescription now costs $345.)
Candidate 3: Denial of natural immunity
When you’ve survived an illness, you’re immune: true or false? A biology student knows the answer, but the finest medical professionals somehow don’t. A FOIA request for data on immunity in those recovered from COVID revealed the U.S. government doesn’t even collect such data. We’ve learned that COVID mutates in the same way as cold or flu viruses. For that reason, the flu vaccine is reformulated annually; the COVID vaccine hasn’t been. It’s only moderately effective against the original strain, much less so against newer variants. A long-term Israeli study revealed that natural immunity provides far more protection, even from variants of the disease, than the highly-touted vaccine. That’s consistent with everything we know about immunity. Yet, this most basic science is ignored. The recovered must wear masks and get jabbed with an outdated, ineffective, and dangerous vaccine, some even before leaving the hospital where they recovered. Medical authorities may grudgingly admit to some natural immunity; perhaps three months, we’re often told. Why would it wane for COVID, though it is durable for other diseases? Each study of the recovered reveals evidence of natural immunity, no matter how long ago they had the illness. That evidence is ignored. Only the vaccine counts. This willful blindness is the antithesis of science.
Candidate 4: “You’re the doctor.”
Not long ago, we trusted our doctors to advise us in our best interest. They took the Hippocratic Oath. They worked for us, the patients. No longer. Most are now employed by large corporations funded by the government and answer to them, or it. They are beholden to the powers that issue their paychecks and licenses. Their convictions are not their own. They told us COVID-19 is fatal, even to children, knowing it is 98% survivable overall, and dangerous in proportion to age and comorbidities. They touted mask mandates, knowing they were of little or no value. They supported wholesale shutdown of schools, small businesses, churches, and community activities, well aware the dangers to mental health and economic well-being were great, and the risk small. They advocated coerced administration of untried and dangerous vaccines that have shown disastrous consequences: blood clots, heart attacks and strokes among the young and healthy, miscarriages, and an unprecedented number of outright deaths. The ill-effects will multiply in the future.

Ben Kessien reports,
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Sunday he is willing to compromise with Russia on the Donbass region — because to try to force Russian forces completely from Ukraine would lead to World War III, according to Reuters.
Russia, which had expected its war on Ukraine to be quick, has yet to take a major Ukrainian city. It seems to once again be focusing on Donbass, where fighting has raged between the Ukraine government and separatists for almost a decade.
Both Zelensky’s latest comments on the area, and Russia’s reported change of strategy, could signal a possible new stage of the war, one that is more limited and where its end might be in sight.

Which agenda will Biden's handlers choose?

Victor Davis Hanson asks,
But what if sealing a new “Iran Deal” is critical before the midterms to show something—anything—of substance after a string of Biden foreign policy disasters? In other words, which agenda reveals the greatest clout: Biden’s demonization of Putin as a “killer,” “bully,” “war-criminal,” and “butcher” or positioning Putin as the suddenly needed Iranian Deal 2.0 fixer?
That is a tough call between Joe’s foreign policy “accomplishments” and Putin slaughtering Ukrainians. But in the end, nonetheless, we have asked the Russians to adjudicate a new Iran deal that almost certainly will pave the way to an Iranian-fossil-fueled nuke.
Remember that Obama in 2012 invited the Russians into the Middle East after a 40-year hiatus. Biden will trump that disaster by ensuring Putin becomes the nuclear protector of the old Obama vision of a Persian-Iran-Shiite-Syrian-Lebanon-Hezbollah-Axis from Tehran to the Mediterranean—likely to be protected by nuclear Russia as an apparent counterweight to U.S. allies in the Gulf and Israel.
Yet the midterms loom. One of the most unpopular of Joe Biden’s initiatives is his welcoming of nearly 2 million impoverished, unvaccinated, unaudited, and untested illegal immigrants to cross the southern border. By any fair measure, Biden deliberately violated his oath of office by failing to enforce U.S. immigration laws. Political agendas outweighed his own promises to uphold the sanctity of federal law.
Who wins this left-wing agenda war—the Faucites who want permanent COVID-19 emergency powers, or the coalition of the La Raza-istas, the hard Left, and labor-hungry employers who want millions more of illegal aliens—when their shared open border agendas spell catastrophe in seven months at the polls?
These contradictions that lead to insanity enrage Americans. They believe the fiascos of 2021-2022 were almost a case study how to destroy a great nation economically, materially, culturally, socially, politically, and militarily in just 14 months.
Yet madness is predictable when the unchecked left-wing’s demand for limitless and endless power collides with a hated, but unremorseful ideological agenda utterly divorced from reality. Put simply, when ideologues demand power but cannot maintain it politically because they are cruel ideologues that destroy what they touch, expect more of their insanity to follow.

There is nothing laughable about the impeachment addiction!

Jonathan Turley writes about the effort by some in Congress to impeach Justice Clarence Thomas. Why impeach him? Because Thomas's wife Gini made 29 phone calls to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to tell him that she believed the 2020 election was fraudulent. Turley writes,
The calls for the impeachment of Justice Thomas are ludicrous but there is nothing laughable about the impeachment addiction fueling this frenzy. People of good faith can disagree on the need of Thomas to recuse himself from certain Commission-related cases. However, impeaching Thomas based on these grounds would expose all justices to the threat of politically motivated impeachments as majorities shift in Congress. That is precisely what the Framers sought to avoid under our Constitution.

Elite incompetence, arrogance, and ignorance

Victot Davis Hanson writes,
So we common folk must quit fossil fuels, but not those who need to use corporate jets. Walls will not mar our borders but will protect the homes of Nancy Pelosi, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates.
Middle class lifestyles will be curbed as we are instructed to strive for sustainability and transition to apartment living and mass transit. But the Obamas will still keep their three mansions, and Silicon Valley futurists will insist on exemptions for their yachts.
The world and the United States are furious over hyperinflation that may soon exceed 10% per year. We will be lucky if it ends only in recession or stagflation, rather than a global depression.
The mess was created by the same apparat who bought into “modern monetary theory.” That silly university idea claimed prosperity would follow vastly expanding the money supply, keeping interest rates at de facto zero levels, running huge annual deficits, piling up unsustainable national debt, and subsidizing workers to stay home.
Both in Europe and the United States left-wing governments deliberately curbed drilling and non-Russian pipelines. They shut down nuclear power plants and subsidized costly, inefficient solar and wind projects. They ended up not with utopia, but with fuel shortages, high prices, and energy dependency on the world’s most repressive regimes.
Few asked how a supposedly noxious West of some 2,500 years duration became the number one destination of millions of global non-Western migrants and offered the greatest degree of global prosperity and freedom for its citizens.
So a reset reckoning is coming — in reaction to the “new orders” championed by Biden and the Davos set.
Closed and secure borders with only legal and measured immigration will return. Americans will demand tough police enforcement and deterrent sentencing, and a return to integration and the primacy of individual character rather than separatist fixations on the “color our skin.”
The public will continue to tune out of the partisan and mediocre “mainstream” media. We will see greater increased production of oil and natural gas to transition us slowly to a wider variety of energy, strong national defense, and deterrent foreign policies.
The prophets of the new world order sowed the wind and they will soon reap the whirlwind of an angry public worn out by elite incompetence, arrogance, and ignorance.

A price worth paying?

CBD writes,
The best scenario is for Russia to consolidate what gains they have made, announce victory, and magnanimously offer generous terms to Ukraine. Putin can save face, Ukraine can remain a functioning (corrupt) country, and the West won't have to back up its alarming and provocative statements about Russia and Putin. Because while the invasion and attendant devastation is awful, a wider war that involves other countries, including America, is not a price worth paying.

Mysterious deaths

James Kunstler writes,
But so many other things just happened with Covid-19, rather serious things, and no one has had to answer for them, certainly not Dr. Anthony Fauci, who just days ago talked up another booster shot of his obviously defective mRNA “vaccines.” Dr. Fauci proposed that despite a raft of emerging statistics from the life insurance realm that indicate a shockingly high number of mysterious all-causes deaths for people in the prime of life. Several conditions appear to be killing them: 1) blood clotting in the capillaries of various organs, apparently caused by the “vaccine’s” main active ingredient, spike proteins; 2) heart inflammation (pericarditis and myocarditis); 3) a mystifying array of neurological afflictions; and 4) switched-off immune system toggles, including the cellular mechanism for preventing the growth of cancers.
There is the appalling and still on-going campaign to suppress Covid early treatment off-label drugs such as ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, fluvoxamine, et cetera, though the protocols have been proven highly effective in clinical practice as well as scores of internationally peer-reviewed studies. Hundreds of thousands of Americans died because these drugs were maliciously outlawed. In many states, doctors can be punished with loss of medical licenses for using these safe and effective drugs, or even talking them up.
You see, there are real people behind all these disorders of our national life. Many more besides just the notorious Dr. Fauci… and many more work under all these directors of this-and-that. What have they done? Or did stuff just happen?

How about naturally produced antibodies as a breakthrough against cancer?

The Jerusalem Post reports,
A new study could lead to a breakthrough against cancer in the form of immunotherapy, which will exploit a unique immune system weapon in the battle against cancer: naturally produced antibodies.
“We’ve now shown that the immune systems of cancer patients can produce antibodies against tumors,” says Prof. Ziv Shulman, who headed the Weizmann research team together with Prof. Irit Sagi.
The research paves the way for a novel approach to developing cancer immunotherapies, one that will make use of natural anti-tumor antibodies. Although the scientists focused on ovarian cancer, they said it could apply to other types of cancer as well.

Which states are doing something significant about election reform?

Wendi Strauch Mahoney reports state by state.
Seven states that imposed new or stricter voter ID laws in 2021 are TX, IA, FL, MT, WY, GA, and AR. Fourteen states “created or expanded election-related crimes.” Seven states “codified processes to ensure voters are notified of problems with their ballots and provided an opportunity to resolve the issue.” Thirteen states put legislation in place to restrict mail-in voting. Five states tightened voter registration laws and requirements. Texas and Arizona are the two states that seem to show up consistently as making laws on election integrity. North Dakota, Arkansas, and Montana also made a good showing. Iowa appears to be the only state thus far to restrict early voting. Every Democrat opposed it.
Since drop boxes were such a point of contention for the 2020 election due to issues of ballot harvesting and, worse, ballot trafficking—they deserve special mention. Eleven states have introduced bills, according to the Voting Rights Lab. Bills have passed the first chamber in three states; GA, AZ, and ID. None have yet been signed into law.
Twelve states have introduced legislation on referencing absentee ballots. Those states which have introduced legislation are GA, SC, AZ, CO, MN, MA, MO, NJ, OH, OK, TN, PA.
Texas has made some of the most substantive changes and/or amendments to its election laws to shore up election integrity.
The Arizona legislature gets points for being active when submitting and debating bills. In some cases, bills were passed and signed. In 2021, Gov. Ducey signed 13 bills addressing early voting, voter registration database issues, and private funding, among other issues. However, most of the bills signed were relatively modest steps toward election integrity.
A key amendment currently considered in Wisconsin seeks to prevent the disaster that took place in five key Democratic strongholds in the state as a result of the Zuckerberg-Chan money.
S 202 is a 98-page bill signed into law by Gov. Kemp in March of 2021 that significantly amended the Georgia Elections Code. The Republicans sponsored Election Integrity Act of 2021 was voted in along party lines. It called for changes to absentee voting, stricter ID requirements for absentee ballots, and no unsolicited ballots may be sent.
S 90 was signed by Florida Governor DeSantis on May 6, 2021. The law was a comprehensive revision of mail-in voting, voter registration rules, and ID requirements. It also limits the number of ballots delivered, who is designated to deliver them, and prohibits election officials from accepting private funds, etc.
Governor DeSantis also signed a bill in early March, SB 524, that would enable the state to have a force “dedicated to election crimes and voter fraud.” It is one of the first states to do so. The governor would oversee the office. The House passed the Republican-led bill on Mar. 9 after a 23-15 vote in the Florida Senate. The new election crimes office would have a budget of $3.7 million.

What will happen when the Biden administration gets rid of Title 42?

Ace of Spades wants to make certain,
Of course. The Democrat Party isn't pro-immigrant, it's pro-illegal-Democrat-voter.
Ace links to an article in Daily Mail.
Biden's Homeland Security is looking for VOLUNTEERS to work at the southern border fearing an influx of 170,000 migrants in hours when Trump's Title 42 is dropped
Progressive activists have pushed for the Biden administration to end Title 42, a coronavirus public health order used to expel migrants, but the number of migrants encountered at the southern border for February were already up 60 percent, prompting fears that the historic surge in the spring and summer months could outpace that of last year.
Every 60 days, the CDC reassess Title 42 – and the deadline for the next renewal is in early April, meaning the provisions could end as early as next month.
Since Biden has taken office, the crossing per-month has massively increased. In 2020, the last year of Donald Trump's presidency, a total of 458,088 migrants were encountered at the border. In 2021, that number spiked to 1.73 million with Biden in the White House.

The Marxist who warns against Marxism!

Robert Spencer reports,
Pope Francis is famous for his tendency to shoot from the hip, which is unfortunate for someone whose every word is watched for significant and authoritative pronouncements. His bad habit was on full display Friday; in expressing sympathy with Ukrainians, the pope declared: “There is no such thing as a just war: they do not exist!” In that single sentence, the pontiff swept aside centuries of Catholic teaching and even undercut the ground for the Ukrainian resistance to the Russian invasion. All in a day’s work for the Marxist who warns against Marxism.
The Catechism even goes on to note that “these are the traditional elements enumerated in what is called the ‘just war’ doctrine.” But now we hear from Pope Francis that “there is no such thing as a just war.” The pope also said that “In the context caused by the war in Ukraine,” it was all the more important to promote the idea “universal brotherhood in the one human family, based on love.” That’s great, but sometimes the aggressor must be repelled, as the Ukrainians are trying to do, and the pope has just cut the theological ground out from under them, at least as far as Ukrainian Catholics are concerned.
This is as irresponsible and destructive as the pope’s dalliances with Marxism. If he is really upset about the war in Ukraine, he should be affirming the relevance of the just war doctrine, not undercutting it. He is an unserious individual in an age of frivolous and short-sighted leaders.

Optimism from Victor Davis Hanson!

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
In normal times progressives worry that they do not have public support for their policies. Only in crises do they feel that the political Left and media can merge to use apocalyptic times to ram through usually unpopular approaches to foreign and domestic problems. We saw that last year: fleeing from Afghanistan, the embrace of critical race theory, trying to end the filibuster, pack the court, junk the Electoral College, and nationalize voting laws.
So we common folk must quit fossil fuels, but not those who need to use corporate jets. Walls will not mar our borders but will protect the homes of Nancy Pelosi, Mark Zuckerberg, and Bill Gates.

Pyongyang tactics

Joe Concba reports,
Seventeen months after the New York Post broke its exclusive bombshell regarding emails from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop, the New York Times – widely considered the nation’s “newspaper of record” – finally got around to confirming the story’s authenticity.
Twitter and Facebook handled the squashing part, with the former locking the personal accounts of anyone who even shared the New York Post story in October 2020. The Post's own account was locked, as was then-White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany's and the official handle of the Trump campaign. Again, these Pyongyang tactics all occurred just a few weeks before a presidential election.

Dissolving Boundaries

James Howard Kunstler writes,
Our country is interested only in dissolving boundaries — geographical, as in our boundary with Mexico, behaviorally, as in the boundary between male and female, psychologically, as in the boundary between reality and fantasy, and existentially, as in being alive or dead. And now Russia, at considerable cost, has to literally teach the USA a lesson in the importance of boundaries. They are going to complete their operation in Ukraine and they’ll likely work-around the “sanctions” heaped on them. Their part of the world these days has all the production, a great many valuable commodities, and most of the world’s population.
Our part of the world seems bent on submitting to self-imposed tyranny and suicide. At least that has been the trend until now. Suddenly information is busting out from all angles penetrating and shattering the dome of unreality we’ve lived under for years. Yes, those vaxxes are killing a lot of people… yes, the Intel Community and the DNC overthrew the previous president… yes, every US Intel bigwig in the land lied to you about Hunter Biden’s laptop… yes, that laptop is crammed with hard evidence of bribery and, arguably, treason involving the current president… yes, the US economy is tanking because we’ve borrowed more money than we can ever pay back and we don’t produce enough stuff of value… and no, Russia is not “losing” in the Ukraine — rather, Russia is showing the commitment and fortitude of a nation interested in self-preservation. You think we might learn something from that?

The Left: fusion of the mainstream media, Silicon Valley, the radical new Democratic Party, and the vestigial Hillary Clinton machine

Victor Davis Hanson writes,
For the last five years, the Left—defined as the fusion of the mainstream media, Silicon Valley, the radical new Democratic Party, and the vestigial Hillary Clinton machine—has crafted all sorts of conspiracies to destroy their perceived conservative enemies.
But examine what has transpired since 2016. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month investigation found nothing. Mueller in congressional testimony was either addled or disingenuous. He even claimed he knew nothing of Fusion GPS or the dossier, the twin catalysts for his own investigation.
We should have been suspicious for a variety of reasons. The two chief signees were John Brennan, former CIA director, and James Clapper, former director of national intelligence. Both were infamous for two reasons. One, they were loud, paid cable-TV pundits, hired to vent their hatred of Donald Trump. And two, both had been previously caught lying under oath to Congress about intelligence matters.
Anyone who read the communications, listened to confirmations of Hunter’s onetime partner Tony Bobulinski, knew anything about Hunter’s serial drug addictions and propensities for losing drug paraphernalia, cell phones, and laptops, and digested the left-wing outrage, knew the laptop was genuine.
No matter—the New York Times and other media blasted them as “conspiracists.” And those smears worked. Social media silenced the story. The mainstream media squashed it as well. The usual mob of Democratic flunkies weighed in on the damnable Ruskies out to get Joe and Hunter by planting a laptop in a Delaware computer service shop.
But again, it matters little because such exposés never come with apologies or efforts to atone for the damage. You see, noble left-wing ends always justify odious means, in this case projecting one’s own conspiracist efforts by smearing innocent others as conspiracists.

Margot Cleveland explains eight
Joe Biden scandals deserving further coverage.
1. Pay-to-Play in Ukraine
The Times made no mention of Hunter’s appointment to Burisma Holdings Board of Directors at a reported salary of $50,000 per month during his dad’s time as vice president. Hunter Biden had no experience in energy. So, a deep-dive on the entire Biden-Burisma connection is a first step.
2. China Gets in the Game
In exploring this scandal, the press needs to push beyond the emails recovered from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, and do what Tucker Carlson did when the pay-to-play scandal first surfaced: talk to Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski. Bobulinski provides further proof that this scandal reaches the top of the Biden family.
3. Moscow, Kazakhstan, and More
While Ukraine and China likely hold the most significant revelations, once those threads are pulled, investigators should move on to Moscow, which according to a Senate report, holds another possible scandal. That report documents that Hunter also received a combined $3.5 million from the wife of the former Moscow mayor, a Kazakhstan investor, and several other individuals. After all, there is no reason to think that a person willing to let his son sell access to the vice president of the United States would close the money train to just a few countries.
4. Ukraine’s Firing of the Prosecutor Investigating Burisma
Biden needs to answer questions anew over his threats to withhold money from Ukraine unless the country removed the state prosecutor responsible for investigating Burisma. Democrats have impeached a president for less.
5. Obama-Biden Administration Ignoring Conflicts of Interest
The question for now-President Biden, then, is whether anyone in his office raised concerns about the clear conflicts-of-interest with him personally, and if so, why did Biden ignore the problem?
6. The Intelligence Community’s Briefing of Biden
From there, an inquiring press should investigate to ensure that Joe Biden did not direct the intelligence community to bury this national security risk to protect himself or his son.
7. Possible Collusion to Interfere in the 2020 Election
Given that polls show that 17 percent of Joe Biden voters would not have voted for him in 2020, if they had known about the Biden family scandals, the collective burying of the laptop scandal represents the most significant interference in elections ever seen in our country. So, “Did Biden or his campaign have anything to do with the decision to kill the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter’s MacBook?” And “What about the ‘fifty former intelligence officials?’”
8. Joe Biden Is a ‘Lying Dog-Faced Pony Soldier’
First, the media should demand Biden answer for lying to the country when he seethed, “I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period.” The evidence overwhelmingly shows that Biden not only knew of the family business deals but was part of them. Read more here:

Medical marijuana fails to improve symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression

Study finds reports,
BOSTON, Mass. — Medical marijuana fails to improve symptoms of pain, anxiety, and depression — while increasing the risk that patients will develop an addiction to cannabis, a new study warns. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital add that up to one in five users may develop cannabis use disorder (CUD).
“In this first study of patients randomized to obtain medical marijuana cards, we learned there can be negative consequences to using cannabis for medical purposes. People with pain, anxiety or depression symptoms failed to report any improvements, though those with insomnia experienced improved sleep.”
Those with anxiety or depression were most vulnerable to CUD, a discovery Prof. Gilman describes is “particularly disturbing.” The team notes that these are also the most common conditions patients seek a medical cannabis prescription to treat.
“Our study underscores the need for better decision-making about whether to begin to use cannabis for specific medical complaints, particularly mood and anxiety disorders, which are associated with an increased risk of cannabis use disorder,” Prof. Gilman says.

A nasal spray could prevent Alzheimer’s disease, brain inflammation!

Steve Finks reports,
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. That’s more than the number of deaths due to breast and prostate cancer combined.
A nasal spray containing specialized fatty acids may be the answer to preventing Alzheimer’s disease, a new study finds. Researchers say the treatment successfully stopped memory loss and brain degeneration in an experimental model of Alzheimer’s — the most common form of dementia in older adults.

Oh yeah, CRT is division!

Censorship and Suppression

One of the leading stories today is the Babylon Bee being censored by Twitter for nominating Rachel Levine as Man of the Year. Levine is Joe Biden's Secretary of Health and Human Services.
Here are a few observations from Ace of Spades.
Anything that departs from the left's propaganda line is either "hateful conduct" or "dangerous disinformation."
In either case, censorship and suppression is the retaliation.
Note that while their account is still up, they're locked out of it -- they cannot post their new stories.
So that's why we usually say that a monopoly cannot use its monopoly power to squelch other businesses.
Until now. Now, when Conservative, Inc. has decided that monopolies using their monopoly power to squelch other businesses is a good thing.
But in the Bee's case -- they are specifically censoring disfavored viewpoints.
All real conservatives, and all real opposition, will be banned.

The truth is the foundation of justice

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò writes,
This is the trap set for both Russia and Ukraine, using both of them to enable the globalist elite to carry out its criminal plan.
Even if we only want to limit our investigation to the economic aspect, we understand that news agencies, politics and public institutions themselves depend on a small number of financial groups belonging to an oligarchy that, significantly, is united not only by money and power, but by the ideological affiliation that guides its action and interference in the politics of nations and the whole world. This oligarchy shows its tentacles in the UN, NATO, the World Economic Forum, the European Union, and in “philanthropic” institutions such as George Soros’ Open Society and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
It should not surprise us that pluralism and freedom of speech, so praised in countries that claim to be democratic, are daily disavowed by censorship and intolerance towards opinions not aligned with the official narrative. Manipulations of this kind have become the norm during the so-called pandemic, to the detriment of doctors, scientists and dissenting journalists, who have been discredited and ostracized for the mere fact of daring to question the effectiveness of experimental serums. Two years later, the truth about the adverse effects and the unfortunate management of the health emergency has proven them right, but the truth is stubbornly ignored because it does not correspond to what the system wanted and still wants today.
But if this colossal fraud has been supported and disseminated by the media, it must be recognized that national and international health institutions, governments, magistrates, law enforcement agencies and the Catholic Hierarchy itself all share responsibility for the disaster – each in its own sphere by actively supporting or failing to oppose the narrative – a disaster that has affected billions of people in their health, their property, the exercise of their individual rights and even their very lives. Even in this case, it is difficult to imagine that those who have been guilty of such crimes in support of a pandemic that was intended and maliciously amplified could suddenly have a jolt of dignity and show solicitude for their citizens and their homeland when a war threatens their security and their economy.
Even if we only want to limit our investigation to the economic aspect, we understand that news agencies, politics and public institutions themselves depend on a small number of financial groups belonging to an oligarchy that, significantly, is united not only by money and power, but by the ideological affiliation that guides its action and interference in the politics of nations and the whole world. This oligarchy shows its tentacles in the UN, NATO, the World Economic Forum, the European Union, and in “philanthropic” institutions such as George Soros’ Open Society and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
First of all, it is necessary to remember the facts, which do not lie and are not susceptible to alteration. And the facts, however irritating they are to recall to those who try to censor them, tell us that since the fall of the Berlin Wall the United States has extended its sphere of political and military influence to almost all the satellite states of the former Soviet Union, even recently, annexing into NATO Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary (1999); Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania (2004); Albania and Croatia (2009); Montenegro (2017); and North Macedonia (2020). The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is preparing to expand to Ukraine, Georgia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia. Practically speaking, the Russian Federation is under military threat – from weapons and missile bases – just a few kilometers from its borders, while it has no military base in similar proximity to the United States.
Biden’s interference in Kiev politics, in exchange for favors to Burisma and corrupt oligarchs, confirms the current US President’s interest in protecting his family and image, fueling disorder in Ukraine and even a war. How can a person who uses his role to take care of his own interests and cover up the crimes of his family members govern honestly and without being subject to blackmail?
Why are we scandalized today by a Russian intervention in Ukraine, when NATO carried out the same sort of thing in Yugoslavia (1991), Kosovo (1999), Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003), and in Libya and Syria (2011), without anyone raising any objections?
It is dismaying to see with what hypocrisy the European Union and the United States – Brussels and Washington – are giving their unconditional support to President Zelensky, whose government for eight years now has continued to persecute Russian-speaking Ukrainians with impunity.

Never forget!

Adrienne writes,
Oh, sure - Jesus told us to love our enemies. I do. I also pray for them (albeit grudgingly.) But I will never forget the barrage of fake news, the self-appointed mask Nazis, the elderly people who were murdered in nursing homes while their family was locked out. I won't forget the child who screamed in terror while a deranged child-care worker kept forcing a mask on his little face, or the people arrested for not wearing a mask of oppression.
Should we forget the government shutting down "non-essential" businesses, the majority of them small and family owned who ended up going broke? Will we forget the people who were forced to take a dangerous death jab in order to keep their jobs and provide for their family? Or should we forget to pray for those who died because of a "vaccine" that isn't vaccine but a bioweapon? Should we forget the graphic images of BLM and Antifa cheered on while being allowed to burn down block after block of major cities? Nope!

Why is Biden so eager to fund terrorists trying to murder Americans?

Ian Miles Cheong reports,
Reviving Iran nuclear deal will make Joe Biden the 'number one funder of terrorism in the world,' says Sen. Ted Cruz.
'Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world. They deliberately target American citizens for murder,' said Cruz, who serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. 'And Joe Biden, for whatever reason, is eager to fund terrorists trying to murder Americans.'
“I think we could see a host of tools employed by multiple senators to stop this deal,” Cruz said in the interview, which was published on Thursday. “We still don’t know the specifics of the deal, but everything we hear keeps getting worse and worse by the day. At this point, it is complete surrender to the ayatollah. It is complete surrender to Russia and Putin.”
Iran, which is known for funding terrorist operations around the world through the Quds Force, Iran’s specialized unconventional warfare and military intelligence group, has been responsible for financing terrorist attacks in Iraq, Lebanon, and Israel’s Gaza Strip and West Bank. The Quds Force has also been tied to training Shia militias in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.
More than simply complaining about Biden’s efforts to negotiate with Iran, Cruz introduced legislation on Wednesday to stop the Biden administration from waiving Congressional sanctions that ban the U.S. government from helping Iran with its nuclear program.
In February, the Biden administration informed Congress that it was giving Iran and its international partners, including Russia, a waiver to conduct civil nuclear activities. Cruz claims that Iran is using its civil activities to build a nuclear weapons program, and has previously fought to rescind those waivers.

The very least you can do is apologize!

And maybe there are some of you in the corporate media who feel deceived. Perhaps you honestly did believe those 50 godless Deep Staters and Brian Stelter and Mother Jones and Max Boot and Ben Rhodes…. Maybe I’m not giving you the benefit of the doubt. Well, then, prove it. Get angry. Joe Biden lied to you. Jennifer Psaki lied to you. The Deep State lied to you. Your own colleagues lied to you.
Don’t you care about corruption?

The chief thorn in Biden's and the Left's side!

Michael Walsh writes,
Smart, pugnacious, and unflappable, DeSantis has emerged as the chief thorn in Joe Biden and the Left's side. After his narrow win over a guy who was later found dead drunk in a Miami Beach hotel room he was sharing with a gay porn producer who had overdosed on crystal meth, DeSantis has cemented his hold on the former swing state, turning it solid red. Unlike Trump, who at the moment is powerless, the squeaky-clean DeSantis upstages Biden and the Democrats on a regular basis; his canny and unflappable handling of the "pandemic" has given rise to a new nickname for the Sunshine State: the Free State of Florida.
It's widely thought that if Trump declares, DeSantis will wait his turn in 2028. But why should he spend four years on ice behind a lightning rod with no further political future? Polls already show him creeping up on Trump and a smashing re-election victory will only gain him more prominence. Lots can happen in three years, especially when his possible primary opponent is getting on in years. After Biden, will America want another geriatric president? Or will the voters prefer a guy 32 years younger, with nothing but upside?

Are we paying attention to our borders?

Kyle Shideler writes,
In the case of the United States, we are a continental nation with only two land borders which, once finalized, have been historically peaceful. This in turn means that ensuring that our neighbors remain stable and peaceable and preventing disruptions or chaos among our neighbors is within our interests.
That order has largely broken down in Mexico, where narco- and human-trafficking cartels corrupt the national Mexican government, control swathes of territory, and openly engage our own border patrol with military weapons. Our sovereignty is routinely violated, and our borders unsecured to the point that border states have declared the ongoing crisis “an invasion.”
To our North, a border safe and settled since 1846, the Canadians are embroiled in a political dispute over COVID-19 lockdowns that saw the invocation of their version of martial law and led to protests and blockages along our own border. While unlikely to go the way of our southern border, as a neighbor Canada is more restive than any time in modern memory.

99.9% Of Americans Support Sending Mitt Romney To Fight In Ukraine
"Honestly, it's just being kind to him," said one man in Iowa. "He obviously wants this really badly, and we just want to give him a front-row seat to the action. We'd hate for him to start World War 3 and then just sit back at home while others go to fight the war for him. No one likes feeling left out."
Romney was quick to clarify his remarks after the poll came out, saying that his support for going to war with Russia would drop significantly if he had to actually do the fighting himself and not send other people's kids to die.

The mythology of January 6 revolves around any number of lies: an “armed” insurrection without firearms; police officers who didn’t die at the hands of Trump supporters; a “conspiracy” that doesn’t exist—to name a few.
But lies related to the whereabouts of Harris and Pence—whose own advisor continues to propagate the possible falsehood—will take the dishonest narrative to a new level. Thousands of criminal charges, which have destroyed the lives of those prosecuted, depend on this lie. Exposing it in court will reveal another aspect of this abusive witch hunt of Trump-supporting Americans.

Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge!

An author at American Greatness posts,
Putin let the world know of his intentions. For months he amassed well over 100,000 troops near the border. Response from the United States and the rest of the world? Barely a squeak. Some tough talk but little else. In diplo-speak was this lack of response a face-saving way for the United States and the rest of the world to give Putin the green light while still allowing us to cluck our tongues at these barbaric actions? Remember Biden saying a “little” incursion might be acceptable?
Did Putin therefore assume the world was giving him wink wink, nudge nudge approval, while still maintaining plausible deniability? And just like Saddam, once the action was taken, the United States led an effort to bring hellfire down upon him.
Those politicians who have never met a war they didn’t like are itching to give this one a go—letting those dumb rednecks who join the military have another chance to become cannon fodder for one of their righteous causes.
People high up in the Bush White House wanted Saddam to invade and people high up in the Biden White House wanted Putin to invade. We should never forget this reality regardless of what the drums of war might say.

We have no commitments to Ukraine. We have no vested, real national security interest in Ukraine.

And yet the Kaloramans are considering setting up a no-fly zone over that country. That means engaging and shooting down Russian aircraft. And that means war with Russia. Nuclear armed Russia.

Romney: Did your kids get rich in Ukraine, like Hunter Biden?

March 16, 2020: worse than a day that will in infamy!

Julie Kelly remembers what we were told two years ago:
“Just 15 days,” we were told on March 16, 2020, “to slow the spread.” Do your part to promote the “common good”—the historical rallying cry of every wannabe despot—or be branded a heartless heretic. And it worked, far better than the original architects probably anticipated.
On the same day my daughter left her college dormitory in upstate New York, not to return to a normal campus life for two years, I posted this on Twitter:
"This is what the Left wants. They want people stripped of wealth, isolated, and terrified. They want sources of joy—church, sporting events, vacations, large social gatherings—eliminated. This is how they get control. And it’s far scarier than any virus.
To say that was a very unpopular view at the time would be an understatement. But having covered the climate change movement for years, I recognized a familiar approach to the spread of COVID-19 hysteria: use flawed data to whip up a public frenzy and shut down all debate in fealty to “science!”
Any disagreement over the data, no matter how unreliable or untested the data happened to be—and in the early months, the only available data came from China—made you a “science denier,” or worse.
This time around, sadly, the hysteria wasn’t pushed solely by lefty environmental activists but also by President Donald Trump, Republican governors, and “conservative” influencers throughout the media. Once that buy-in was made, all hope was lost.
Trump’s catastrophic decision to acquiesce to the demands of Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx—the former a charlatan, the latter a dunce—and shut down the country two years ago this week was by far the worst moment in his presidency and rivals the worst moment in any presidency. As usual, however, Trump’s first instinct (the one he suppressed to appease those demanding we honor The Science™) was the right one. The cure should not be worse than the disease, he fretted. He knew it, but he listened to the quacks anyway.
The cure, of course, got worse. Emboldened by their success in forcing Trump to authorize the first 15-day shutdown, the then-adored Fauci and Birx took it a step further. With two dubious projection models in hand, the pair went to the White House at the end of March 2020 and convinced Trump to extend the lockdowns another month.
The decision sealed his electoral fate; the booming economy he helped build entered a death spiral.
The date of March 16, 2020 isn’t just a day that will live in infamy—it marked the beginning of the largest crime against humanity since the last world war. And the perpetrators aren’t finished yet.

Tulsi Gabbard fires back at Mitt Romney

Ryan Saavedra reports,
Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) fired back at Mitt Romney on Monday for calling her a “treasonous” Russian propagandist over the weekend, saying that he either needed to prove her wrong or admit he was wrong and resign.
“Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda,” Romney tweeted. “Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.”
It’s not clear which specific comments from Gabbard to which Romney was referring, but she did claim in a video that she posted to social media over the weekend that there are “25 to 30 U.S.-funded bio labs in Ukraine” that are “conducting research on dangerous pathogens.” In the video, Gabbard called for a ceasefire until the labs could be secured and the pathogens inside the labs destroyed.
“So, Senator Romney, you have a choice: out of pride, continue to deny the truth or admit you are wrong, apologize, and resign. Aloha,” she later added. “And remember that without the truth, we can be neither safe nor free.”
