APRIL 29TH MARKED THE 76TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF DACHAU
Feder: The Liberation of Dachau And Holocaust Lessons We Haven’t Learned [While the next Reich waits in the wings.]
If it’s acknowledged at all, expect the usual cliché-ridden coverage that trivializes one of the greatest horrors of history, while the next Reich waits in the wings. Here are a few Holocaust lessons you won’t find in the lame-stream media: 1. The National Socialists really were socialists – If Hitler was a conservative, as progressives claim, why wasn’t his party called the National Capitalist German Workers Party? Hitler initiated a host of welfare state measures, including infrastructure projects like the Autobahn. He distinguished his socialism from that of the USSR in this way: Russian socialism was international. The socialism of the Third Reich was national. The Nazis wanted to conquer Europe, not create clones of German socialism. Like the cabal that runs Democrat Party, the Nazis preferred to keep the façade of private ownership while creating a command economy. 2. Hold on to your guns – When he came to power, Hitler used gun registration initiated by the Weimar Republic to disarm his opponents. After the invasion of France in 1940, gun owners were ordered to surrender their weapons on penalty of death. (Thanks to French registration, the Gestapo knew exactly who had them.) The Warsaw Ghetto showed what a conquered people could do with even a handful of antiquated weapons (mostly handguns and incendiaries). The Ghetto fighters held off 2,000 crack German troops – with tanks and flamethrowers — for almost a month. Biden is more committed to gun prohibition than any president in our history. 3. Elections matter — more than you can possibly imagine – The Nazis came to power democratically with a plurality of votes in the 1932 election. Initially, many viewed the fuhrer as a comic character. (Sound familiar?) Some Germans who weren’t Nazis voted for Hitler in 1932, figuring: What the hell, let Adolf give it a try. At least he isn’t a communist. (At least Biden doesn’t Tweet mean things about his opponents.) Like January 6, the Reichstag fire was exploited to the hilt, to demonize the opposition and put more power in Hitler’s hands. In Germany, 1932 was the last free election. If Biden remakes our political landscape — by nationalizing election laws, packing the Supreme Court and giving Democrats a permanent majority in the Senate with DC statehood — future elections will be a formality. Totalitarians love their symbols, whether armbands or face masks. 4. . . . 5. . . .6. . . 7. . .

Judy McLeod Canada Free Press journalist: Just a little more than a year ago, we had all come to believe that our churches would always be open to worship the Almighty. Who would ever have thought back then that the day was coming when churches of every Faith would be closed—without even an outcry from most of the clerics who preached to us over our lifetimes?
Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine describes President Biden’s address to the joint session of Congress: Americans got something closer to Biden unfiltered, squinting in bafflement, turning his head from side to side like a wind-up doll, and delivering a long tedious series of demands for money, empty promises, and even more hollow talking points. The set was empty. And so many empty seats only highlighted the utter emptiness of this administration.
President Joe Biden addressed 200 people in a joint session of Congress yesterday: After just 100 days, I can report to the nation that America is on the move again. America is rising a new.
President Joe Biden addressed 200 people in a joint session of Congress yesterday: It’s time we remembered that ‘We the people’ are the government. You and I. Not some force in a distant capital, not some powerful force that we have no control over. It’s us. It’s ‘We the people.’
President Joe Biden addressed 200 people in a joint session of Congress yesterday: We won’t ignore what our intelligence agencies have determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to our homeland today: White supremacy is terrorism.
Don Feder contributor to Frontpage Magazine: . . .we haven’t learned from the history of the Holocaust and the Third Reich, and it is being repeated — with a vengeance.
John McLaughlin pollster sums up Biden’s first 100 days job approval rating: The fact he’s only in the low 50s right now is a really bad sign for Joe Biden.
Chris Ruddy Newsmax CEO said about his friend President Donald Trump: He didn’t play by the rules as President and he’s certainly not going to as an ex-President.
Gabe Kaminsky contributor to The Federalist: Conservatives must resist the left’s anti-culture — because if we don’t, we will be without a common moral purpose to guide the country we love.
Jay Bhattacharya Stanford University Professor of Medicine: It’s going to be very difficult to undo the public fixation on “disease avoidance” provoked by public health agency’s COVID hypervigilance
Glenn Greenwald journalist, author and former attorney: The most important axiom for understanding how the U.S. corporate media functions is that there is never accountability for those who serve as propagandists for the U.S. security state. The opposite is true: the more aggressively and recklessly you spread CIA narratives or pro-war manipulation, the more rewarded you will be in that world.
Ben Philippe Barnard College English instructor wrote in his book: When this race war hits its crescendo, I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity. I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, white health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.
Annie Holmquist contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: The children who learn history as an intriguing story will come to love the past and mine it for the lessons it holds for us today. The child who approaches history in such a way will also all the more quickly recognize the dangerous paths we are heading down with our fixation on diversity and identity.
Ray DiLorenzo contributor to Canada Free Press describes how the communist revolution underway in America is being done: When enough young people begin to listen, you tell them to live for themselves, tune in, drop out, feel good, experiment with drugs and all that life has to offer. Parents don’t understand, but so what. What do they know? You don’t want an educated, moral, focused youth.
President Trump released this statement on April 27, 2021: The Radical Left Democrat Party has gone absolutely INSANE in fighting the Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, right now taking place in the Great State of Arizona. They sent a team of over 100 lawyers to try and stop it because they know what the result of the Arizona Senate sponsored audit will be—and it won’t be good for the Dems. The audit is independently run, with no advantage to either side, but the Democrats don’t want to hear anything about it because they know that they lost Arizona, and other scam election States, in a LANDSLIDE. They also know that the Arizona State Legislature approved virtually none of their many election requests, which is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The people of Arizona are very angry, as are the people of our Country. If we can’t have free and fair elections, we don’t have a Country. The audit must continue. America deserves the TRUTH!

Wax: Will It Be America First or MAGA, Inc. in 2022?
Merely replacing blue representatives with red ones, without any substantive change in direction, would be no win for the people. That’s a likely scenario if principled America-first candidates don’t make it to the primary ballot or aren’t ready for battle supposing they do. At the grassroots level, what needs to happen now in the lead-up to the deadline filing dates (some of which are as early as this coming winter) is 1) identify America-first candidates, 2) distinguish them from the opportunistic fakers and grifters, and most importantly of all, 3) become active and influential within the local GOP apparatus. […]
If there isn’t a candidate in your immediate area running for local, state, or federal office talking about restoring localism, then you don’t have a local GOP setting an America-first agenda.

Showalter: Tim Scott declares America ‘not a racist country,’ and leftists step up to the plate to prove him wrong, hurling racist epithets
Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina made an eloquent, uplifting speech on behalf of Republicans, in response to Joe Biden’s quasi state of the union address. He spoke of racial grievances, real ones, including a recent instance when the Washington Post’s bigfoot fact-checker Glenn Kessler attempted to debunk Scott’s impoverished background in the Jim Crow South as somehow ‘privileged,’ with revolting claims that Scott “had it easy,” which was beyond horsehockey. Scott left egg all over Kessler’s face. […] It was a well-received speech, based on pundit after-talk on the nets. The transcript can be read here.
And that didn’t sit well with the left, which, true to form, reverted to their roots, put on their white hoods, and hurled nakedly racist insults at Scott as if to shame him for attempting to find common ground with Democrats and speak truth to power.

Bentley: Goldwater’s Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Heads to AZ Governor’s Desk
In Arizona, government can take your car, your cash, even your house and hold it forever—even when you haven’t been charged with any crime. But that’s on the verge of changing thanks to leadership from the Goldwater Institute and a broad coalition of partners—and that’s great news for justice in the Grand Canyon State. Today, the Arizona Senate voted nearly unanimously in favor of House Bill 2810, which requires the government to get a criminal conviction before taking someone’s property. Sponsored by Rep. Travis Grantham, this reform is a bipartisan-backed effort, also passing the Arizona House with near-unanimous support. […] In addition to requiring a conviction before taking title to private property, the bill includes other critical reforms, such as: . . .

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN’S 4/28/2021 ADDRESS TO CONGRESS
NR Editors: Biden’s Dishonest Sales Pitch
President Biden’s address to Congress connected only intermittently with reality. On his telling, every good thing that has happened in America since he took office — from vaccination to job creation — is a tribute to his wisdom, rather than a continuation of a trajectory set beforehand. All presidents say such stuff, and they all get away with it, although Senator Tim Scott made a valiant attempt to correct the record. Worse was the dishonesty of Biden’s sales pitch for his policies. He insinuated that the ten-year ban on assault weapons had reduced the murder rate in the U.S. — something neither careful studies nor a casual look at the trends supports. He pretended that the Trump administration had ended . . .

Kassam: Biden’s #JointAddress Was An Unmitigated Embarrassment. Here’s Why…
Joe Biden entered the House of Representatives tonight, a fully-grown, adult vaccinated man, wearing a mask despite recent CDC guidance on those who have had their shots. Everyone in the chamber tonight had received a vaccine. What a crock. But Biden’s theatrics aside, here’s why his speech was a huge embarrassment to the United States. 1 – America is an Idea? Joe Biden called America an “idea” tonight. The same thing the left have called Antifa. But America isn’t an idea. It’s a nation. And nations require borders. Biden never mentioned the border, tonight. Despite a triple-digit percentage rise in attempted illegal crossings under his presidency. Even if America is an idea, it’s clear that Joe Biden is against it. 2 – No Support. Biden’s speech was overwhelmingly disliked online, with a wild 2:1 ratio of people “disliking” the video on YouTube, and this comes despite YouTube stacking the decks in favor of the leftist president. Not just that, but even . . . 3 – Foreign Policy? . . . 4 – January 6th. . . . 5 – Boos. . . .

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY
Klein: Biden’s Feckless Foreign Policy in a Nutshell
Biden’s foreign policy doctrine in dealing with America’s adversaries is simple: Appease or concede first and then try to negotiate. Take Iran, for example. Former President Donald Trump had the Iranian regime on the ropes with his maximum pressure policy of increasing economic sanctions until the regime blinked. But when Biden came into office, he blinked first. […] Moving on to China, Biden once again got played – this time on climate change. On his first day in office, Biden declared . . .

DiLorenzo: Communist Revolution in America
If you were a fervent America-hating Marxist living in the United States, what would you do with a nation that is rich, powerful, and highly successful? What do you do with a nation that has religious freedom, is basically a moral country, respectful of law and order with the Judeo-Christian principles of hard work, the dignity of human life, strong family ties, common decency, a strong desire for education, and a sense of accountability to God? America has freedom, capitalism, the opportunity to go up the economic ladder as far as your willingness to work hard. It is not a perfect country. Some of its past, like every other country on this planet, is dubious, but it is constantly improving, rearranging, and evolving. It is the envy of the world. What do you do when you have a commitment to turn this nation around to your way of thinking? Now, remember, this is not early 20th century Russia where people lived the life of serfs and Europe was in the midst of an industrial revolution, modernizing, and living in relative comfort. You certainly don’t try to instigate a violent revolution. Revolution against what? Freedom? No, you change the culture. You let the people make the change. They just need a push in the left direction.

DEMOCRAT PLAYBOOK: MARIST (WOKE) CRITICAL RACE THEORY IDENTITY POLITICS
Glenn Beck: Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 105
Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that’s what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, “The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America,” things are getting … bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn’t any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

ANTIDOTE TO WOKENESS
Holmquist: Books Your Kids Should Read to Combat Wokeism
The type of virtues taught in “woke” history courses have little to do with traditional, Christian virtues. So how do parents circumvent this progressive teaching of history? […] Ben Franklin offered some insights on this goal in his 1749 pamphlet “Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pensilvania.” History, Franklin wrote should “be made a constant Part of [students’] Reading” because it provides a platform for all kinds of subjects. Franklin lists geography, ancient customs, and government as some of these subjects. But he also believes that history is a good platform on which to present the all-important issues of religion and morality. History shows “the Advantages of Temperance, Order, Frugality, Industry, Perseverance, &c. &c.,” writes Franklin. “Indeed the general natural Tendency of Reading good History, must be, to fix in the Minds of Youth deep Impressions of the Beauty and Usefulness of Virtue of all Kinds, Publick Spirit, Fortitude, &c.” Clearly these aren’t the types of virtues taught in the present and future “woke” history courses. So how do parents circumvent this progressive teaching of history? […] I encourage parents to instill a love of history in their children by reading fiction books. The G. A. Henty books are an excellent place to start, as are the following selections from Intellectual Takeout’s Great Books List. Kindergarten to Third Grade . . . Fourth to Sixth Grade . . . Seventh to Eighth Grade . . . Ninth to Twelfth Grade . . .
