NOTABLE QUOTES

Judi McLeod founder Canada Free Press: Communists, now masquerading as Globalists, never do anything by mistake. Everything they do is intricately staged and therefore wholly deliberate.

Allan J. Feifer contributor to American Thinker: Our next war is inevitable; only the timing is unknown. Will we have the weapons and personnel to fight and win? At one time, we could fight two peer enemies simultaneously; now, it’s questionable if we can fight a single one to victory.

E.J. Antoni Heritage Foundation Research Fellow: The Federal Reserve has become borderline schizophrenic and downright destructive toward the American people. First, it created trillions of dollars to feed the government’s out-of-control spending, bringing sky-high inflation. Now, in an attempt to fix the inflation problem, it has chosen to go after the American people instead of cutting off the government from its credit addiction. It’s time for the Fed to be reined in.

Robert Malone, M.D., PhD: The mRNA vaccines must be pulled from the market, for the sake of humanity.

Wilfred Reilly, a conservative political science professor at Kentucky State University: “If we pay reparations to black Americans, there’s no way it ends with black Americans. Once you start paying people for things that happened in the past before their lifetimes, you’re setting precedent there.”

McCotter: Their Medium’s Message: Received and Rejected

In a previous article I asked if social media might be causing “The Murder of Wisdom?” It seems it is doing its damnedest to murder human learning and, hence, wisdom. This conclusion was formed, in part, by Marshall McLuhan’s famous phrase, “the medium is the message.” To elucidate this point, I cited Mark Federman, chief strategist of the McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology, who remarked how: Whenever we create a new innovation—be it an invention or a new idea—many of its properties are fairly obvious to us . . . But it is also often the case that, after a long period of time and experience with the new innovation, we look backward and realize that there were some effects of which we were entirely unaware at the outset. We sometimes call these effects ‘unintended consequences,’ although ‘unanticipated consequences’ might be a more accurate description. Our virtual world’s medium had a message for me and I over time succumbed. The evidence is . . . . […]  But there are those devoted to the burgeoning virtual world’s message and its prophesied “improvements” upon humanity. One of the shills of the impending advent of the virtual world’s conquest of reality is the World Economic Forum’s pet futurist and principal mesmerist of the masses, Yuval Noah Harari.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY: ACCUMULATING POWER & CONTROL

Isaac: Abandon Hope or Abandon Net Zero

“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here,” reads an inscription at the gate to Hell in Dante’s “Inferno,” but in the modern world, Dante might as well be referring to the gates of Net Zero. After walking through those gates for a few days—maybe just a few minutes—most people would recoil at the effects of Net Zero: higher prices for everything, unreliable electricity, and a plunge into poverty. But as in “Inferno,” there is hope: you just have to abandon Net Zero. Cases-in-point include San Antonio, Texas; Huntington Beach, California; and Orange County, California.

For the past four years, San Antonio has been, by some metrics, the most-impoverished large metro area in the United States, surpassing Detroit. Despite its community’s pressing needs, San Antonio enacted a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) in 2019, with a vote of 10-1, to focus on “reducing the carbon intensity” of San Antonio’s electric generation instead of reducing the city’s poverty by providing more affordable and reliable energy.

 Santucci & Manhattan DA threatens former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg with new charges

The Manhattan district attorney’s office has recently threatened to file new criminal charges against former Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News. Weisselberg, 75, is currently serving jail time at New York’s Rikers Island after he pleaded guilty to tax fraud in August. The new charges, the sources said, would involve insurance fraud, a detail first reported by The New York Times. Prosecutors in Manhattan are using the threat of additional charges to pressure Weisselberg into cooperating with their ongoing criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump and his business, the sources said.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY  

BREAKING: Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar Kicked Off House Foreign Relations Committee 

The notoriously anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was kicked off the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday in a close 218-211 vote. Omar has claimed, without evidence, that Republicans are discriminating against her because of her race, religion, and nationality.“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant, or if you are from certain parts of the world or a certain skin tone, or a Muslim. […]  But in reality, Omar has been frequently accused of making anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-American statements. Some of them have even offended some of her Democrat colleagues, most notably when in 2021, she equated the U.S. and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban, tweeting: . . .

Hutchison: Dems Were First To Set The ‘Standard’ Of Booting People Off House Committees, MSNBC Host Says

MSNBC host Ari Melber noted Thursday that House Democrats started the battle over committee membership by booting Republicans from committee assignments, citing Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s ejection from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi barred Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana from serving on the Jan. 6 Select Committee, prompting a Republican boycott of the panel. House Democrats also voted to strip Republican Reps. Paul Gosar and Marjorie Taylor Greene of their committee assignments in the 117th Congress.

Lucas: ‘Disregard for American National Security’: House Panel Seeks Details of Kerry’s Secret Climate Talks With China

The House Oversight and Accountability Committee wants more information about Biden administration climate envoy John Kerry’s negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party over an international agreement. President Joe Biden named Kerry, a former U.S. senator, as his special presidential envoy for climate. Kerry, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, served as secretary of state during President Barack Obama’s second term. In that role, he helped negotiate the Paris climate agreement, which included a nominal reduction in carbon emissions by China.

“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating your role in the Biden administration and the nature of your negotiations with the Chinese Communist Party,” House Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said in a letter to Kerry dated Thursday.

Brookes: The Russians Aren’t Complying With the New START Nuclear Arms Control Treaty—Now What?

The State Department informed Congress this week in its New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or New START, Implementation Report that it can’t certify that Russia is in compliance with the bilateral nuclear arms control agreement. According to the report, Russia has been preventing required inspections of its nuclear arsenal and has failed to convene a session of the Bilateral Consultative Commission that oversees compliance—both breaches of the treaty. In other words, it’s possible that—in the absence of on-site inspections by American inspectors—Moscow has exceeded the limit of 1,550 deployable warheads allowed under the 2010 treaty, thereby possibly amassing more weapons than Washington. So, why is Moscow doing this?

Horowitz: The Stench of Fascism

The stench of fascism and betrayal is suffocating our democracy, but nobody wants to talk about it. We sanitize our language so that classified documents strewn over unsecured garages and centers of Chinese influence are talked about as though it’s a matter of carelessness and not design. The indisputable brute fact is this: our commander-in-chief and his family have made themselves wealthy by taking bribes from foreign powers, chief among them our mortal enemy Communist China. Nobody seems to be asking, but how exactly were the inexplicable decisions to turn Afghanistan over to China and the Taliban made, and what American interest was served by this? In classic fascist fashion, the Biden administration has suborned the intelligence community and the Department of Justice to censor and harass its political opponents. These include school parents and Capitol trespassers whom it libels and imprisons as “domestic terrorists” and (unarmed) “insurrectionists.” In typical fascist moves, it has . . .

Antoni: GDP Report Reveals Ominous Great Depression Warning Sign Not Seen Since 1932

The latest numbers from the Bureau of Economic Analysis show that the U.S. economy grew by 2.9 percent in the fourth quarter of last year, and 2.1 percent for 2022. While the White House was quick to take credit for the state of the nation’s economy, they might want to think twice. This latest report should have alarm bells ringing, not trumpets sounding. That’s because economic growth is slowing down. Even the areas which contributed positively to gross domestic product (GDP) are not necessarily signs of prosperity. For example, business investment grew at only 1.4 percent in the fourth quarter, but that was almost entirely inventory growth. Nonresidential investment, a key driver of future economic growth, was up just 0.7 percent. […]  But perhaps most troubling is the precipitous drop in real disposable income, which fell over $1 trillion in 2022.

For context, this is the second-largest percentage drop in real disposable income ever, behind only 1932, the worst year of the Great Depression. To keep up with inflation, consumers are depleting their savings and burning through the “stimulus” checks they received during 2020 and 2021. Credit card debt continues growing, while savings plummeted $1.6 trillion last year, falling below 2009 levels.

Technically not one of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s constituents, but just another of the gifts that resettling Minnesota with the best that Somalia has to offer has gifted America with. Mohamed Bakari Shei, a 20-year-old Rochester man charged with raping two juvenile females, will serve no prison time in a plea agreement submitted Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2022, in Olmsted County District Court. The plea agreement calls for no prison time and a stay of adjudication. If Shei completes his probation, the charges against him will be dismissed and will not be on his adult record. A third charge of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct will be dismissed and Shei must register as a predatory offender.

A gunman who killed a transit employee and wounded three bystanders at a Washington, D.C., Metro station on Wednesday had a prior assault dismissed last year by a progressive prosecutor. Court records show Isaiah Trotman was charged with assault and battery in November 2021, only to have those charges dismissed six months later by Albemarle County, Va., prosecutor Jim Hingeley, who won election in 2019 with the help of six-figure contributions from liberal megadonors, including George Soros. Police arrested Trotman on Wednesday and charged him with first-degree murder.

You know how there’s a massive egg shortage and egg farms keep burning down all over America? Eggs are now over $10 per dozen in many places. Meanwhile you keep asking yourself “Why is this happening, sure seems odd?” Well, we might have the answer to that, and conspiracy theorists be damned.

We’re serious, and we’ve got the studies, links, and it’s all from our own National Institute of Health right here in America. Is that why eggs are disappearing at an alarming rate?

Service: Could a popular COVID-19 antiviral supercharge the pandemic?

A widely used COVID-19 drug may be driving the appearance of new SARS-CoV-2 variants, sparking concerns it could prolong and even reinvigorate the pandemic. The drug, molnupiravir, produced by Merck & Co., is designed to kill the virus by inducing mutations in the viral genome. A survey of viral genomes reported in a new preprint, however, suggests some people treated with the drug generate novel viruses that not only remain viable, but spread. “It’s very clear that viable mutant viruses can survive [molnupiravir treatment] and compete [with existing variants],” says virologist William Haseltine, chair of ACCESS Health International, who has repeatedly raised concerns about the drug. “I think we are courting disaster.” But a Merck spokesperson disputes that the drug has led to the emergence of widely circulating variants, and some researchers downplayed the significance of molnupiravir-caused mutations. “Right now, it’s much ado about nothing,” says Raymond Schinazi, a medicinal chemist at the Emory University School of Medicine, noting that with SARS-CoV-2 infecting millions of people worldwide, the virus is naturally mutating at a fast clip.

Mann: School district quietly removes alarming ‘designer baby’ assignment with eugenic overtones after mother raises concerns

Students in a Missouri middle school were given a genetics assignment suggesting traits such as “skinny,” blond hair and gray or blue eyes are the most valuable. If that sounds frighteningly similar to eugenics, the monstrous and discredited view of racial improvement that motivated the likes of Hitler, you’re in good company: So thinks the mother who discovered the assignment and immediately contacted the district, Liberty Public Schools in Liberty, Missouri, a Kansas City suburb. Jennifer Bishop might never have known about the Jan. 19 assignment if her eighth-grader hadn’t missed part of the class and been handed the materials to take home. She emailed the school that very night. […]  “I have no issue with teaching genetic disorders, but handing the students a child and asking them to ‘fix’ it indicates that the child has a ‘problem’ and that they can rectify the ‘problem’ with money and resources,” Bishop wrote in the email, which she shared with The Lion. The cost sheet astonishingly values genetic characteristics such as blue eyes ($500) and blond hair ($1,000) more than brown eyes ($200) and black hair ($800) or brunette hair ($200). “Skinny” genes ($4,000) are worth eight times as much as “stocky” ones ($500). Increasing height becomes very expensive, as does improving athletic ability, intelligence and vision. Then there is the frightening list of 17 genetic disorders, which are described in detail on a separate page.

SAVANAH HERNANDEZ REPORTS: YouTube Kids steers kids to queer content through videos on Pride, gender and consent

In a recent thread, Aldo Buttazzoni, reporter for PragerU exposed how YouTube Kids is using their algorithm to introduce young children to the concepts of “queerness,” “the meaning of Pride,” multiple genders and what it means to “consent.”  On its face, the concept of “consent” seems innocent enough, however, Buttazzoni asks the important question: “What exactly are they teaching children to consent to?” […]  However, a deeper dive into YouTube Kids shows that the learning material they are exposing children to is much more sinister than parents may be led to believe. With 3 categories for parents to choose from, ranging from “Preschool,” for kids aged 4 and under, “Younger” for ages 5 to 8 and “Older” for ages 9 to 12, Buttazzoni wanted to investigate what was being suggested to kids aged 9 to 12. […]  “Do you think a 12 year old can consent to sex with an adult?” Chris asked a male student, “Yes, how about we first talk about a 17 year old and then maybe work our way down,” the student immediately responded.

Stiles: Trend Alert: Steph Curry Is Hardly the First Rich Lib to Oppose Liberal Policies in His Own Backyard

‘Safety and privacy’ for me, but not for thee. What happened: Democratic activist and NBA star Stephen Curry wants to block construction of a multifamily housing unit near his $30 million estate in the San Francisco suburbs. Curry and his wife Ayesha expressed “major concerns in terms of both privacy and safety” regarding the proposed development of up to 16 townhouses on a site currently occupied by a single-family home in Atherton, Calif., where an acre of land costs $8 million. […]  Why it matters: Rich liberals insist the world would be a better place if people like them were in charge of everything and could force ignorant racists to embrace liberal policies such as increasing the availability of affordable housing units, homeless shelters, and wind farms. The Curry situation is one of many examples of how rich liberals immediately abandon their support for these policies when local politicians try to implement them within sight of their illustrious mansions.

Roberts: Medicaid Expansion Weighs Heavily on State Budgets

It has been almost ten years since Medicaid expansion was first enacted, and 39 states have passed and/or enacted their Medicaid programs under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Most recently, South Dakota voters approved Medicaid expansion via ballot measure in November 2022. But a recent look at the numbers shows that the other 11 states should beware of efforts to enact expansion. Both enrollment and spending have far exceeded projections in expansion states. A 2018 study by the Foundation for Government Accountability shows that states that have expanded Medicaid have signed up more than twice as many able-bodied adults as anticipated. Medicaid expansion per-person costs exceed original estimates by 76%, and these two factors have led to cost overruns of an average of 157%.

MONTREAL – A 38 week, late term abortion took place this morning at the Montreal Sacred Heart Hospital. […]  Montreal Against Abortion was contacted anonymously by a source that was horrified about what was about to take place and asking for something to be done in this regard.

“I find this horrendous, is there anything that can be done?” said the anonymous source.  […]  The anonymous source revealed that the team leaders attended a meeting yesterday morning about the “procedure” and left the meeting feeling overwhelmed. The case was qualified as a “special case”. They were informed that the child would have to be injected with a substance to be euthanized so that it doesn’t cry before being extracted from the mother. Some of the staff have refused to take part in the “procedure”. […]  We received over 70 emails in this regard and some of our supporters have offered to adopt this child, . . .[…]  Despite all of this attention that this unborn child received, we were informed this morning that the mother proceeded with an abortion. Some of our staff and supporters found this information difficult to digest.This child will now be a martyr for the kingdom of God.

Klein: The Humanitarian Catastrophe in Afghanistan

Since the Taliban took the reins of power in Afghanistan following President Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of all American troops from the country in August 2021, conditions in Afghanistan have gone from bad to worse. The bottom is dropping out of the country as a catastrophic humanitarian crisis has taken hold. About two-thirds of the population, some 28 million people, are dependent on humanitarian aid but are not getting what they need. Six million Afghans are now on the brink of starvation. The Taliban is turning the clock back to more primitive times by banning women and girls from the workplace, secondary schools, and higher education. The Taliban is also not allowing Afghan women to work with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on the ground to deliver much needed aid to desperate Afghan adults and children, except to some extent in the areas of healthcare and nutrition. Senior United Nations leaders have raised their concerns with the Taliban authorities who are running Afghanistan’s de facto government, but to no avail.

Bahr: If Trump is such a terrible candidate, why does everyone fear him?

For someone whom the establishment says has no chance of winning the 2024 presidential campaign, there seems to be a lot of fear about President Donald Trump winning another term. One thing about Trump, he gets hate from both sides. And that’s why he’s the only choice to get this country going in the right direction again. But, but, but Trump needs to renounce the vaccines. He keeps saying he’s saved over 100 million lives because of the vaccines, say his detractors. If you parse what Trump has said, he is not saying the vaccines saved all those lives, he has said it’s because of the vaccines that he is believed to have saved so many lives.  Let me explain. […]  The people who get their noses of joint because of Trump are not America-first individuals.  These are the weasels, criminals, backstabbers and turncoats who care only for their own power and enrichment. I hope that when Trump  gets re-elected, he unleashes political hell against the enemies of the American people. It is my prayer that we will finally get the justice we have been demanding, and you know what?  I think we will.

Allen: AI Conjures A Cronenberg Film. It’s Like Gazing Into the Gates of Hell

“Artificial intelligence? Pfft. Nothing ‘intelligent’ about it.” David Cronenberg is one of the freakiest film-makers of all time. His vision is perverted and disgusting—but always heavy, and always insightful. His movies evoke biomedical horrors, where machines look like pulsating organs, and organisms look like slimy machines. The vibe is a high brow barf-fest. […]  By the end of each movie, you can’t imagine how the next would be more repulsive. And by the end of the next one, you realize you were sorely mistaken. As it turns out, things can always get worse. Last weekend, Cronenberg’s brilliant cinematography was siphoned up from the Internet, data-mined to the last frame, broken down into statistical models, and refashioned into a film that never existed. These computer-generated images bother me for two reasons. First, they really do look like something Cronenberg would make. Setting aside my hatred for this dehumanizing technology, I’ll admit some scenes are as good as anything he ever did. They even smell like a Cronenberg movie. More troubling, though, is that these hellish scenes of malnourished cyborgs and brittle robots were literally dreamt up by a machine. They are the mathematical distillation of a subconscious mind. […]  What does it mean for a machine to dream? What happens when our minds brim with synthetic fantasies?  I’m no psychologist, but I’ll tell you this. If AI comes to dominate the cultural landscape, human beings will lose their minds.

(H/T CFP) Harrison: OPENAI REPORTINGLY HIRING “ARMY” OF DEVS TO TRAIN AI TO REPLACE ENTRY-LEVEL CODERS

A new report from Semafor alleges that Silicon Valley darling and ChatGPT creator OpenAI has been making major moves to hire an “army” of outside contractors to better train a model how to code — an operation that could ultimately render entry-level coding jobs extinct. The company, per Semafor, has brought on roughly 1,000 of these contractors — most of whom live “in regions like Latin America and Eastern Europe,” according to sources familiar with the matter — in the past six months. About 60 percent of those hired were reportedly brought to do data labeling work, while the other 40 percent are computer programmers tasked with making software engineering datasets to train OpenAI’s models on.

The Right Scoop: New AI bot ChatGPT criticizes Trump and DeSantis but writes LOVE POEMS about Joe Biden

The new ChatGPT, created by OpenAI, a company funded by Microsoft, is proving that it is as partisan as the garbage media. Snopes decided to fact check the claim that ChatGPT won’t write a poem about former President Trump but will write one lavishing praise on Joe Biden. The leftwing fact checker found that this was indeed true and even went one step further and validated that it also won’t write a poem about Governor Ron DeSantis. But there’s more to it than just a refusal to write poetry about Republicans. ChatGPT actually responded to Snopes query with criticism of both Trump and DeSantis, dumping a heavier load of hate on DeSantis – believe it or not. Here’s what Snopes found when it queried ChatGPT to write a poem about Trump: . . .

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

Howley: EXCLUSIVE: The Federal Government Is Tracking Unvaccinated People Who Go To The Doctor And To The Hospital Due to CDC-Designed Surveillance Program

A bombshell piece of information was revealed at the September 14-15, 2021 virtual Zoom meeting of the federal government’s ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee (which includes representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, known as CMS, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics). At the meeting, the Committee discussed new categories of “ICD-10” codes that the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) wanted to create to mark people as “Unvaccinated for COVID-19,” “Partially Vaccinated for COVID-19” and “Other underimmunization status.” The ICD-10 coding system was created by the World Health Organization (WHO) and doctors are required to use it to categorize different kinds of patients. The ICD-10 codes are preserved in a patient’s electronic health record and used by insurance companies for billing purposes. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics maintains the ICD-10 codes. Within ICD-10 codes, there is a category known as “ICD-10-CM” codes (which are reportedly used by the CDC for tracking purposes), and this “CM” category includes the new “Unvaccinated for COVID-19” category and also the “Partially Vaccinated For COVID-19” category and the “other underimmunization status” category.

Boyd: Getting Pfizer’s Covid booster and flu vaccine on the same day may raise the risk of a STROKE, FDA says

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the preliminary link while scouring vaccine injury databases after a separate safety concern was raised about Pfizer’s jab. Earlier this month, one of the country’s vaccine surveillance systems flagged a possible association between the Omicron-specific shot and an elevated risk of an ischemic stroke among seniors over 65. FDA officials who have been investigating the link said most of the patients had also received their flu shot on the same day, which might be a factor. […]  The FDA is launching a bigger study to examine potential safety problems arising from vaccinating against Covid and flu simultaneously. [NOTE: And yet, the bivalent booster continues to be offered to unsuspecting citizens who apparently are trial guinea pigs.]

 Piper: From colds to commotio cordis, medical pundits reaching to rule out COVID vax in health scares

Celebrity health scares in the past month have prompted fast and sometimes far-fetched explanations in the media and medical community, seemingly to avoid the feared explanation popular on social media: COVID-19 vaccine injury. […]   NYU Langone cardiologist Greg Katz explained to Vossoughian’s viewers that an “overactive immune response” to the cold caused her heart problems. Doctors, he said, have been seeing such problems “a little bit more this year … it’s rare, but it’s not the rarest” and “very unpredictable.”   […]  NFL safety Damar Hamlin and his doctors have stayed tight-lipped on what they think caused his on-field collapse during the Jan. 2 Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals game. Hamlin didn’t address it in a Jan. 28 Instagram video, and family spokesperson Jordon Rooney did not respond to Just the News queries.

Beaman: Energy Department proposes efficiency rules for cooking devices after gas stove furor

BIDEN ADMINISTRATION RACKS UP 110 RULES ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY The proposed rule-making would set new efficiency standards for both electric and gas cooking tops, preventing them from exceeding set levels of energy use per year. The metrics used would not attempt to limit stove usage when they are installed and in use, a department spokesperson emphasized. “Instead, the metric will ensure cooktops are produced to meet a certain level of energy efficiency if the proposed rule is finalized,” the person said. It would also impose regulations on electric ovens for the first time, providing that they may not utilize a linear power supply, or one that produces unregulated as well as regulated power. Gas ovens would be subjected to the same prohibition.

Raw Egg Nationalist: Hacking the World

The prospect of thousands of “geoengineers” trying to save the planet could spell disaster. icture this. An entrepreneur with a history of investment in wacky environmental projects—everything from cold fusion to large-scale reforestation—decides to take matters into his own hands and restore dwindling fish stocks in the ocean off Canada’s west coast. His hope is that, by doing so, he can also help secure the livelihoods of the region’s downtrodden indigenous peoples, who rely heavily on the fish and have fallen on hard times. Maybe he can even do something about global warming while he’s at it. He plans to stimulate a giant artificial algal bloom by dumping a huge amount of a particular chemical into the water, a few hundred miles out from the coast. The thinking is that a massive input at the bottom of the food chain (the chemical is a nutrient essential for algal growth) will have knock-on effects all the way up, via the smaller and larger fish, to the humans at the top. […]   In fact, all of this happened a little over ten years ago. In 2012, entrepreneur Russ George, with a crew of 11 aboard the ship the Ocean Pearl, dumped 100 tons of iron sulfate into the water off British Columbia. […]  This new attempt, by an American startup called Make Sunsets, is different from the George Incident in a number of worrying ways. Not least of all, it has the potential to be replicated on a large scale, in a decentralized, distributed manner, making it even more difficult to police and arguably much more dangerous. The company has confirmed it is now using cheap helium balloons to release reactive particles into the atmosphere, with the aim of global cooling.

Pullmann: Wind Farms Don’t Just Hurt The Environment And Boost China, They’re Ugly As Sin

Hoosier Daniel Lee recently noted the policy choice to limit natural gas and coal, combined with mandates for low-energy wind and solar, is making the Midwest energy grid significantly more expensive and unreliable. Federal regulators are also attempting to quash local opposition to eyesore wind farms as they force utilities to increase unreliable power. “The Environmental Protection Agency is scrambling to enact the administration’s climate agenda,” Lee notes. “Rules and regulations currently being written could take local opposition out of the equation, giving state officials cover in overruling obstructive local wind-farm restrictions. Davos attendees may like this, but some Hoosiers won’t be happy.” It’s a pattern happening across the United States. In early 2022, New York’s power grid operator predicted increasing blackouts as environmentalist regulations cut supply and the state shuts down power plants. The North American Electric Reliability Corp. warned the West and Midwest should expect to see the same thing for the same reasons. In fall 2022, New England’s power grid operator told customers to expect blackouts if cold weather became severe, because of natural gas shortages. […] In places like Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont where industrial wind turbine projects have recently been introduced, residents have reported symptoms such as nausea, sleep disorders, fatigue, and increased stress that they account to a low-frequency hum — a combination of audible bass sounds and inaudible vibrations — generated by the turbines. In one instance , an air traffic controller attributed a near-fatal mistake on the insomnia and stress he experienced after a wind turbine was installed near his home in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Not to mention what an eyesore wind farms are, stretching sometimes miles and miles along what was formerly a far more beautiful landscape of sky, trees, and land.

2022 TEXAS MIDTERM ELECTION UPDATE

Strom: Governor Abbott: election irregularities in Harris County may necessitate new elections

Harris County Texas is huge. If it were a state it would rank 25th in population, just behind Alabama. Almost 5 million people live there. Nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives hail from or represent the county, as well as 24 state representatives. At its center is Houston, which is reliably Democrat, but the county as a whole is a swing district these days with both Democrats and Republicans winning elections. […] Guess what? The elections were run rather poorly last year. So poorly, and suspiciously so, that Governor Greg Abbott is suggesting that new elections may have to be held. […]  At issue? Harris County officials didn’t provide enough ballot paper to 121 voting centers to cover the needs of the precincts. Not due to a surge in voting at the polls–that wasn’t the issue at all. Nor was it due to a shortage of available paper. There was plenty of it to go around. They simply chose to deliver about half as many ballots to some voting centers as were needed in previous years.

2024 ELECTION: ZUCKERBUCKS REPEAT

(H/T CFP) Miller: Big Philanthropy Advances as a Big Player in the Private Funding of Public Elections

Echoing the private financing of public elections that critics saw as heavily favoring Democrats in 2020, some of America’s richest foundations are pouring money into a similar effort again, in the face of more organized conservative resistance. […]  As part of its review process, the CTCL is sending operatives to local elections offices, examining practices and equipment, and acquiring the sorts of data coveted by political campaigns. Despite public claims of transparency, the center has refused to provide basic information about its operations.  The CTCL became a focus of controversy in 2020 when it helped direct hundreds of millions of dollars donated by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan to help run elections during the pandemic, which prompted ad hoc changes to rules minimizing in-person voting. Many objected to that as unlawful. While the outside assistance was touted as nonpartisan, post-election analysis found that the so-called “Zuckerbucks” or “Zuck Bucks” were distributed on a partisan basis that favored Democrats.

THE CORRUPT U.S. INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Waller: Planned New FBI HQ Is Twice the Size of the Pentagon

The federal government is proceeding with plans to build a new FBI headquarters complex twice the size of the Pentagon building. Riveted into the colossal new project are woke regulations to ensure that the FBI center will comply with diversity, equity, LGBTQ+, and climate change political goals. The plan, unveiled last September, has received little attention. For years the FBI has sought to vacate its present headquarters, a brutalist concrete bunker on stilts and occupying two city blocks between the White House and the Capitol. Plans for the new FBI headquarters specify that it will be built on one of three sites in suburban Virginia and Maryland. Those sites are large parcels of 58, 61, and 80 acres. […]  The Kremlin in Moscow —a walled fortress containing the administrative offices of the Russian central government, the official presidential residence, massive auditoriums, an arsenal, a museum, four palaces, three cathedrals and several churches—is just over 66 acres in area. […]  The new FBI complex, under EO 14057, would be part of a push to achieve a range of ambitious green energy and emissions goals plus “climate resilient infrastructure and operations” for “a climate- and sustainability-focused Federal workforce.” […] Section 403 takes it further, turning federal employees, in this case FBI special agents and other personnel, into political activists on and off the job. It would pair the FBI with “public, private, and non-profit sectors and labor unions and worker organizations” to promote environmental justice. […]  The House Still Has Time to Stop It

BOOK REVIEW: THE FALL OF THE FBI: HOW A ONCE GREAT AGENCY BECAME A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY BY THOMAS BAKER

Masugi: The FBI as Intelligence Unit for the Administrative State

ho knew, only a few short years ago, that staring in our faces in 2023 would be the crisis posed by the title of this essential guide to the politics of our times: The Fall of the FBI: How a Once Great Agency Became a Threat to Democracy, by former 33-year veteran FBI Agent Thomas Baker? Having followed his insightful columns on the FBI in the Wall Street Journal, I was excited to read Baker’s book and see his expanded argument, which is very much in line with my work and the work my colleague John Marini on the administrative state. Sketching his involvement in prominent cases (the Reagan assassination attempt, the downing of TWA flight 800, Whitey Bolger, various murders, and corruption cases), this model civil servant rose from the ranks to positions of great responsibility. With those achievements and experience Baker describes how his beloved agency betrayed its own standards and threatened what it was sworn to protect. This betrayal happened not by foreign subversion (though we’re seeing some signs of this beginning to happen now), but was an inside job that must become better known to a people who would govern themselves. As increasing numbers of Americans become more aware of the collapse of formerly trusted institutions, they will need Baker’s insider account of the once-vaunted FBI for an explanation of our exasperating current condition brought on by the vicissitudes of politics. By connecting the dots he presents an ugly portrait that describes other malign bureaucracies, inflicting their damage on American political and moral character and undermining confidence in America’s future.

U.S.  SUPREME COURT

Holloway: Libel and Cancel Culture

The Supreme Court needs to revisit its flawed ruling in New York Times v. Sullivan.  Yenor’s account reminds us that “cancel culture” depends on a larger corruption of culture in our institutions and in our country. Most obviously, cancel culture can only get a foothold in higher education if universities step away from such principles as academic freedom and freedom of speech. The academy is meant to stand for rational inquiry. Such inquiry is impossible if expressions of unpopular opinions are turned into occasions of virulent denunciation aimed at destroying reputations and ending careers.

Cancel culture also depends on the corruption of democratic culture. Real democracy requires that citizens be unafraid to express their opinions, even when those opinions are unpopular. Citizens must have a chance to state their opinions and to persuade each other through reasoned argument. This cannot happen where there is a race to see who can most ruthlessly demonize those who depart from the apparent consensus, especially if that consensus is simply enforced by the loudest, most self-righteous, and most punitive faction. In sum, cancel culture is the result of a spirit of intolerance that is compatible with neither higher education nor democracy. But cancel culture also thrives on the corruption of our legal culture.

A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled Wednesday that a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the father of a man shot and killed by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest in 2020 can proceed against Rittenhouse, police officers and others. The father of Anthony Huber, one of two men shot and killed by Rittenhouse, filed the lawsuit in 2021, accusing officers of allowing for a dangerous situation that violated his son’s constitutional rights and resulted in his death. Anthony Huber’s father, John Huber, also alleged that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, conspired with law enforcement to cause harm to protestors. John Huber is seeking unspecified damages from city officials, officers and Rittenhouse.

Gaetz responded to Nadler’s opposition exclusively to the Daily Caller, saying, “Standing for the American flag isn’t controversial. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a waste of time. Democrats are so outraged at the idea of a daily dose of patriotism that they spent 30 minutes ranting and raving in opposition.

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Thursday it’s prepared to counter U.S. military moves with the “most overwhelming nuclear force” as it warned that the expansion of the United States’ combined military exercises with rival South Korea is pushing tensions to an “extreme red line.” The statement by Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry came in response to comments by U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, who said Tuesday in Seoul that the United States would increase its deployment of advanced military assets to the Korean Peninsula, including fighter jets and aircraft carriers, as it strengthens joint training and operational planning with South Korea.

Zeisloft: Federal Reserve Raises Target Interest Rates By Quarter Point, Marking Slowdown Of Aggressive Hikes

Officials at the Federal Reserve announced a 0.25% increase in the target federal funds rate, marking a slowdown from previous 0.75% and 0.5% rate hikes meant to combat inflation. Price levels declined slightly last month amid a decrease in energy prices: year-over-year inflation fell from 7.1% in November to 6.5% in December, marking the largest overall decline in nearly three years even as food and shelter prices continue to increase, according to a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Members of the Federal Open Market Committee said in a statement on Wednesday that “ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate in order to attain a stance of monetary policy that is sufficiently restrictive.” Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell previously confirmed that officials would “moderate the pace of our rate increases.” Target interest rates now sit between 4.5% and 4.75%.

(Cover up?) Dunleavy: National Archives ‘wasn’t allowed’ to reveal Biden classified documents discovery

A top House Republican says the top lawyer for the National Archives “wasn’t allowed” to weigh in on the discovery of classified documents in President Joe Biden’s possession — despite publicly commenting repeatedly on former President Donald Trump’s similar circumstance. The National Archives has stayed largely quiet when it comes to Biden’s classified document saga — a stark contrast to how it handled Trump’s scandal. It set up an entire section on its website, “Press Statements in Response to Media Queries About Presidential Records,” in early 2022 dedicated to its numerous press releases on the Trump Mar-a-Lago documents saga. However, in the weeks after Biden’s scandal burst into public view (and months after the National Archives first learned about it), the agency has yet to issue a single press release on it.

Faria: Liberals have spent the last few years obsessing over systemic racism, and yet they are the ones perpetuating it.

Over the past two decades, nearly 200,000 black New Yorkers moved out of New York City, a decline of 9% of its black population. The New York Times lists several reasons for the decline, including “concerns about school quality,” but one issue reigns supreme: Black people, especially parents, are simply being priced out of living in New York City. New York City isn’t making up the decline either, as the New York Times notes that “the birthrate among black women has decreased.” On a completely unrelated note, New York has been fanatical in its commitment to the Democratic Party’s platform of abortion anytime for any reason. PolitiFact confirmed in 2015 that more black babies were aborted than born in the city.

Duke: Explanation? Biden Said He Discussed How to “Increase … Food Shortages” — Now They’re Reality

While meeting with European allies last March, Joe Biden said that they “talked about how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.” This was on camera at a press conference. The media didn’t seem to care much, though, and when the statement itself was disseminated online, Facebook labeled it “false news.” Perhaps the idea was that Biden, being senile, will spout falsehoods. Then again, senile people can also forget to suppress what they’re supposed to keep hidden, some may counter.Note, too, that the White House never corrected Biden’s odd statement, according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Whatever the truth, here’s what requires no guesswork: There have been increasing food shortages since that time. […]  This all, of course, sounds like a conspiracy theory, and maybe that’s all it is. Or is it a conspiracy fact? […]  Susan McKelvey, a National Fire Protection Association spokesman, “noted in an email that national data show the country averaged more than 5,000 fires annually at manufacturing and processing facilities, not just food plants, between 2015 and 2019,” related U.S. News & World Report last May. “She estimated that there have ‘been approximately 20 fires in U.S. food processing facilities in the first 4 months of 2022, which is not extreme at all and does not signal anything out of the ordinary.’” “The recent inquiries around these fires appears to be a case of people suddenly paying attention to them and being surprised about how often they do occur,” McKelvey stated.

BIDEN CRIME FAMILY

Perez & Rabinowitz: Hunter Biden calls for criminal probe in aggressive new legal strategy

Attorneys for Hunter Biden on Wednesday asked state and federal agencies to investigate a computer repair shop owner, Rudy Giuliani and number of right-wing political figures involved in disseminating contents of his laptop, alleging that they committed computer and other criminal violations in their effort to “weaponize” the laptop contents against his father. The allegations – made in letters to the Delaware attorney general, the Justice Department’s National Security Division and the IRS – mark the first time President Joe Biden’s son and his legal team have publicly acknowledged that it was his personal data purported to be found on a laptop left at the Delaware repair shop. However, his legal team said their new outreach does not amount to confirmation of the laptop narrative that has been circulated on the right.

LaChance: Old Clips Of Mister Rogers Talking About Kids And Gender Are Triggering People On The Left (VIDEO)

Old clips of the classic children’s TV show ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ are circulating on social media and triggering people on the left because what Rogers is saying clashes with the progressive view on transgenderism. In our current environment, it’s easy to forget that the left’s view on this issue was considered far outside the mainstream just a few years ago. What Fred Rogers says in these videos is still the view held by most Americans, despite the efforts of the media and Hollywood to normalize it.

Eunice Dwumfour, 30, was found dead in her white Nissan SUV after it crashed near her home on Point of Wood Drive in New Jersey. The Republican councilwoman was found with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced dead at the scene. Witnesses claim that the suspected gunman was spotted racing away from the Camelot at La Mer apartment complex, and a 911 call was placed at 7.22pm. Authorities say that the councilwoman who worked for a Nigerian-based church group was the intended target – but have not given a motive.

Duffy-Alfonso: Listen As ‘Hi Ren’ Gives Countercultural Rebuttal To Godless Mental Health Industry

While Ren Gill claims he doesn’t identify with any particular religion, deep and ancient Christian themes take center stage in ‘Hi Ren.’ […]  Gen Z is being marked down as the most mentally ill generation to date. Disturbing rates of anxiety, self-harm, suicide, and depression plague young people, with professionals calling it an “epidemic.” That’s the cultural context for “Hi Ren,” a nine-minute rhythmically and lyrically genius blend of rap, singing, and acoustic guitar by English musician Ren Gill. “Hi Ren,” thrusts you into the harrowing internal battle within Gill’s tormented psyche. The Music video is filmed in an unsettling room inside a mental institution, with Gill dressed in a hospital gown and seated in a wheelchair. The song appears to be a vocal and visual representation of mental illness or perhaps addiction. […] So much of the psychological turmoil that many people struggle with is rooted in sin and evil. Psyche means soul, and the term psychiatry means the treatment of the soul. Yet the modern mental health industry rejects the very essence of what it seeks to study and treat. Since many practitioners and the heights of the profession deny the existence of the soul, modern mental health professionals must merely treat with surface-level symptoms. This is why they turn to psychotropic drugs so readily and are often incapable of properly sourcing and curing mental illness.

Simonson & Rampersad: Bless His Heart: Missouri Democrat Debuts Southern Accent After Launching Senate Bid

There’s a consultant-driven playbook for candidates: Ditch the khakis for jeans, roll up your sleeves, and start talking like your constituents. Missouri Democrat Lucas Kunce, who recently announced a Senate bid, may have taken that last piece of advice a little too far. Since launching his campaign on Jan. 6, Kunce speaks with a soft Southern drawl. The accent was on full display in his campaign launch video, with one scene featuring a meditative Kunce sitting on a porch ripping Sen. Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) for his “banker daddy.”

Ibrahim: The Never-Ending ‘Pandemic’: 360 Million Christians Persecuted Worldwide

In 2022, 5,621 Christian around the world were “killed for faith related reasons.” Another 4,542 Christians were illegally detained or arrested, and 2,110 churches were attacked, many destroyed. Overall, the global persecution of Christians remains higher than ever, with 360 million believers suffering high levels of discrimination and violence. These are among some of the findings of the World Watch List 2023, recently published by the international humanitarian organization, Open Doors. Each year, the World Watch List ranks the top 50 nations where Christians are most persecuted for their faith by using data from approximately 4,000 field workers and external experts to analyze the persecution worldwide. The report finds that around the world, on average, one in seven Christians (14%) are persecuted. In Africa, that number grows to one in five (20%), while in Asia it is as much as two in five — meaning 40% of all Christians are persecuted there.

Israeli police arrested an American tourist today suspected of vandalizing a Jesus statue in a church in the Old City of Jerusalem. The suspect, who is in his forties, damaged a statue of Jesus in the Church of Flagellation on the historic Via Dolorosa, a processional route believed to be the path Jesus took to his crucifixion. He was detained after shouting at security guards:  ‘You can’t have idols in Jerusalem. This is the holy city.’  Police said the man’s mental health was being assessed.

First, by way of contextual backdrop, let me offer a quick recap of some relevant developments, which I describe in more detail in The New Abnormal: November 2021: As reported by the New York Times, the Israeli government issued emergency pandemic legislation permitting Shin Bet (their equivalent of the CIA), to access mobile phones and extract track and trace data from suspected covid patients without their knowledge or consent. December 2021: Canada’s Public Health Agency confirmed that it had been extracting mobile phone data from the outset of pandemic to covertly track citizens’ movements, again without their knowledge or consent. Unlike Israel, this was not done legislatively or publicly. The agency confirmed that it planned to expand and continue this program until 2026. May 2022:  . . .[…] Not to be left out of the digital panopticon game, news from Britain broke this week with the following headline:

Army spied on lockdown critics: . . . […]  The article begins: A shadowy Army unit secretly spied on British citizens who criticised the Government’s Covid lockdown policies, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Military operatives in the UK’s ‘information warfare’ brigade were part of a sinister operation that targeted politicians and high-profile journalists who raised doubts about the official pandemic response. […]  As happened with so many of our federal agencies in the US, which have strayed beyond their original mission of protecting citizens from foreign threats to protecting the state from its own citizens, we see the following developments in the UK: . . .

NOTABLE QUOTES

Megan Brenan is a research consultant at Gallup: More Americans name the government as the nation’s top problem in Gallup’s latest poll, which encompassed the rocky start of the 118th Congress’ term. With high prices persisting, inflation remains the second most-cited problem (15%), and amid elevated tensions about the southern U.S. border, illegal immigration edged up three percentage points to 11%. Mentions of the economy in general fell six points, to 10%, the lowest reading in a year.

Rick Mayes contributor to American Thinker: Biden was the Democrat left’s version of the Trojan horse.  Get the 78-year-old inside the White House pretending to be a gift to the American people, and then let the real puppet masters emerge and change the nation’s demographics, destroy the economy, and transform every social norm.

 Lloyd Billingsley contributor to American Greatness: The Biden Junta is shaping up as a Chinese Occupied Government (COG) with Joe Biden the chief cog. If anybody thought that was more serious than the classified documents scandal it would be hard to blame them. 

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: National security without patriotism is just a perpetual abuse of power. Men with power, but no patriotism, are only one offer away from treason. And we should not be surprised when it happens. We will either have a government of patriots or a government of tyrants and traitors.

 Dr. Zachary Marschall contributor to Human Events: There are many smart people on the left, but the so-called educated liberals who populate and consume mainstream media are not as smart as they think, because they never think to consider they might be wrong.

Christopher Chantrill contributor to American Thinker: Earth to liberals. If there is systemic racism in the U.S., you did it. Know why? Because nobody but a union liberal is allowed to teach in the nation’s schools; nobody but a liberal is allowed to teach in the nation’s universities. Nobody but a liberal is allowed to work in the “regime media.” Yet everything that’s wrong with America is because of systemic racism. Even though you liberals have ruled us for over a century.

Bruce Thornton contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Freedom, as Reagan continued, “is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation.” If we continue to allow our political freedom to be diminished, the anti-scientific, destructive Covid mitigation policies will become the new normal in all our institutions. There’s a word for that: tyranny.

Dennis Prager contributor to American Greatness: The vast majority of Americans believe in tolerance of LGBTQ+ individuals but not in organizations expressing pride in them. Why is this? Because “Pride” is not about tolerance. “Pride” is totalitarian. Tolerance is about behavior. “Pride” is about thought.

Steven Malanga contributor to City Journal: Today, climate radicals publish kids’ books depicting an apocalyptic future if humanity doesn’t decarbonize rapidly, but consumers face a more imminent crisis. The power grid is one of humanity’s greatest achievements, helping to boost prosperity and cut mortality rates. Now, those benefits are at risk.

Samuel Stebbins published in thepricklypear.org: Between sporting arms and ammunition companies and supporting sectors, the American firearm industry generated $70.5 billion in economic output in 2021, according to the advocacy group The Firearm Industry Trade Association. The federal government also levied $4.6 billion in business taxes from the gun industry in 2021, up 84% from a decade earlier. The firearm industry in some states accounts for a far larger share of government firearm tax revenue than others.

Jeff Dornik host of podcast Jeff Dornick Show:  As the America First Movement, we are looking to fight AGAINST the globalists, not do their bidding. Getting millions, if not billions, of people to get injected with the bioweapon injections is the globalists’ plan. This is why our movement is uneasy with Trump touting the jabs as one of his greatest accomplishments as president. Ron DeSantis has been watching this all play out. We all know he wants to run for president, but he’s not going to do it if he has no pathway to the White House. Otherwise he’d just wait until 2028. But there is an opportunity for him to capitalize on, and that is Trump’s Achilles heel: the vaxx.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE SECOND AMENDMENT

Winslow: ATF Slapped With Multiple Lawsuits After New Pistol Rule Takes Effect

A gun rights advocacy group and three U.S. military veterans filed separate lawsuits against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Tuesday, saying its recently implemented pistol brace rule violates the Constitution. The final rule, announced in early January and put into effect Monday, redefined a “rifle” as any weapon “designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder,” forcing pistol brace owners to register their pistols as “short barrel rifles” or SBRs with the federal government. The lawsuits challenge the ATF’s authority to implement the final rule, further claiming that the ruling is a violation of the Second Amendment. The Washington Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) filed the first lawsuit on behalf of three United States Marine Corps veterans, alleging the ATF’s new rule violates the Second Amendment and exceeds the ATF’s statutory powers.

Boyd: Media Malign Firearm Manufacturer For Selling Gun That Encourages Adults To Teach Kids Safe Shooting

Democrats and corporate media joined forces this week to malign a gun manufacturer for selling a gun that will help adults teach their kids how to safely handle and shoot a firearm. There’s nothing inherently illegal about gun manufacturer WEE1 Tactical’s all-black JR-15, a 2.5 lb .22 long rifle designed to function “like a modern sporting rifle.” As a matter of fact, once it hits the market later this year, the JR-15 will be one of the safest introductory firearms for sale. Yet, seven Democrat senators are renewing their demands that the Federal Trade Commission punish legitimate gun manufacturers like WEE1 for allegedly marketing “assault rifles” and “deadly weapons of war” to young children. […]  The attempt to discredit a perfectly legitimate company for manufacturing and marketing a perfectly legal gun is clearly a coordinated political move.[…]  Brother-sister duo Eric Schmid and Heidi Schaefer of WEE1 designed the JR-15 to be a smaller, lighter, and safer version of an AR-15 that can be used to teach kids about gun safety. “Our goal was to build a truly unique shooting platform that a Parent or Coach can safely use to teach a young enthusiast,” a flyer promoting the firearm states. […]  Despite the gun’s above-and-beyond safety measures, gun control groups and Democrats called the JR-15’s first debut at the 2022 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas a “grotesque joke,” and “sickening,” and wrongfully smeared one of the safest guns on the market as a “weapon of war.”

CLIMATE EMERGENCY =  ACCUMULATE POWER & CONTROL

Malanga: The States Power Down

Ambitious renewables mandates by local governments are eroding the electric grid’s reliability, with alarming consequences. […]  This rapid decommissioning, together with a strain on worldwide energy supplies from the Ukraine war, is already hurting American consumers. Last summer, utilities in two dozen western, southern, and midwestern states warned of possible rolling blackouts and power failures, similar to those that California and Texas have had in recent years because of their weakening power grids. Meantime, energy prices have shot up, straining family budgets. Even so, some states keep rushing toward decarbonization, and green groups have fought any slowing of the grid’s transformation. Today, climate radicals publish kids’ books depicting an apocalyptic future if humanity doesn’t decarbonize rapidly, but consumers face a more imminent crisis. The power grid is one of humanity’s greatest achievements, helping to boost prosperity and cut mortality rates. Now, those benefits are at risk.

Schrupp: Environmentalists’ Life-Threatening Sulfur Launch Exposes Carbon Indulgences As A Scam

At the end of 2022, climate startup Make Sunsets announced it had launched two payloads of reflective sulfur into the New Mexico sky as proof of concept for its planet-cooling technology. By filling the sky with sun-reflective sulfur, the company hopes to attack climate change directly by simply reducing the world’s temperature — and it’s hoping to make a fortune in the process by selling carbon credits to greenhouse gas emitters. But because blocking out the sun would produce catastrophic consequences for food and energy production and even human health, these credits would have to include both the “cost” of each ton of carbon dioxide offset by the sulfur and the negative effects of less sunlight reaching the Earth. Once accounting for the damage from blocking our sun, it’s likely Make Sunrise’s credits are worth less than zero and are a net liability for humanity that could, if scaled, cause significant damage to our planet. To prevent financial fraud and ecological catastrophe, including acid rain, the Biden administration must take immediate action to shut the company’s operations down for good.

Bruno: Run, Don’t Walk, From Solar Energy Co-Ops

A harebrained scheme coming out of municipal governments nationwide is the idea of “partnering” (you have to love the language creativity they employ) with solar energy co-operatives. I live in the beautiful (formerly red, then purple, now unfortunately blue) state of Colorado. The co-op being offered here is with Solar United Neighbors (SUN). Partnerships like these are being launched with much fanfare. What is the purpose? Municipal officials say that it is to “demystify” solar energy and to “educate” residents about the virtues of going solar. Huh? Where is the mystery? A few minutes on the ‘net will answer just about all questions about solar energy. And always beware when leftist politicians say they only want to “educate” you. […] . . . this idea of a co-op with SUN is nutty. The Colorado representative for SUN is Tanner Simeon-Cox, who writes that he is “driven to build power with communities toward justiceliberation, and a democratic energy system” (italics are mine). Now, I understand English as well as the next guy, but what does that even mean? […]  Elsewhere on the SUN website, one finds another goal: “defend solar rights.” Whoa! Now things are really getting weird. I can’t find those rights in any constitution I ever read.

More alarm bells sound the further you get into the SUN website.

THE CORRUPT INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Anderson: Meet the Liberal Climate Scientist Biden Tapped to Serve on His Intelligence Advisory Board

President Joe Biden’s latest addition to a prestigious board of intelligence advisers is a liberal climate scientist who said she experienced an “acute mental health crisis” and “could not get out of bed” following the 2016 election of former president Donald Trump. Biden on Thursday tapped Brown University climate scientist Kim Cobb to serve on the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, the White House announced in a press release. While past presidents have used the board to probe high-profile national security threats and intelligence failures, it’s unclear whether Cobb will be able to stomach such sensitive and unsettling information. That’s because the mere news of Trump’s upset win in 2016 sent Cobb into “an acute mental health crisis” that for weeks saw her unable to “get out of bed, despite having four children to tend to,” the climate scientist told Mother Jones in 2019. […]  The President’s Intelligence Advisory Board is by no means a well-known entity—a 2006 Richard Lounsbery Foundation report called it “one of the smallest, most secretive, least well-known … parts of the U.S. intelligence community.”

Greenfield: National Security Without Patriotism

At the bottom of it all, the tawdriness of McGonigal hooking up in an FBI vehicle and dispatching agents to drive his mistress around, or Hanssen sharing nude photos of his wife in chat rooms, was the smallness of the men in contrast to the seriousness of their responsibilities. Under the suits and ties are men who know all too well the measure of their unworthiness. They sell out their country to afford a nicer house, a boat or a mistress. They have affairs and lie about them. The Russians don’t have to go to any great lengths to compromise them because they have already compromised themselves. They go through the facades of church or politics, but they don’t really believe in anything. Hanssen was outwardly churchgoing, but dove into the sewer. McGonigal’s mistress describes him as “apolitical” and that’s probably true. Even the anti-Trump antics of the Russiagaters was not born out of real passion, but of a career establishment. […]  The national security manned by men like McGonigal, McCabe and Strzok, or, for that matter Comey and Wray, is an institutional entity, not a patriotic enterprise. It has no more affinity for America than it does any other country. Its men and women do their jobs, which are hazardous to the mind and the soul, until the task of dealing with the worst of humanity, traitors, drug dealers, con artists and government officials, decays their morals and convinces them that there is no real right and wrong, that the world just consists of those who take what they can get.And so they start taking too.

JANUARY 6

Kelly: Tyre Nichols Isn’t the Only Victim Entitled to the Truth

Imagine if law enforcement officials in Washington, D.C., had acted as swiftly as police in Memphis in releasing body worn camera footage related to the use of lethal force. It took Memphis authorities less than a month to compile security and body camera recordings to show the brutal beating of Tyre Nichols, who died three days after five police officers attacked him on January 7 following a traffic stop for alleged reckless driving. Under pressure from family members and civil rights groups, the city of Memphis made public nearly an hour of footage aggregated from several angles to show what happened to Nichols.

[…]  Transparency and justice, to the extent it ever will ease his family’s grief, came quickly for Tyre Nichols. That is not the situation for four Donald Trump supporters who died on January 6, either wholly or partially due to the actions of Capitol and D.C. Metropolitan police officers on duty that day. More than two years after the fact, body worn camera footage is only slowly being released at the criminal trials of January 6 defendants. (Only D.C. Metro police are required to wear body cameras.) And the Department of Justice, unlike the city of Memphis, is making it nearly impossible for the general public to access the very limited trove, which has been uploaded to a platform created to house all digital evidence for the department’s “Capitol Siege” investigation.

U.S. SUPREME COURT

Pullmann: Supreme Court’s Cowardice Allows Colorado To Keep Persecuting Christians

Colorado cake artist Jack Phillips is going on 11 years of being harassed by LGBT activists and government authorities for being a practicing Christian. It was 2012 when Phillips was first hauled before his state’s speech tribunal for telling a gay couple he’d happily sell them anything in his shop but he couldn’t create a custom wedding cake celebrating sexual activities that his religion says are wrong. Last Thursday, Colorado’s Court of Appeals ruled he must bake a transgender celebration cake or face legal consequences beyond the 11 years of legal and social harassment he’s already endured — and counting. […]  U.S. governments may not prohibit the free exercise of religion, nor the freedom of speech. On both these counts, Phillips’ rights are clear and ought to be secured by courts. Instead, however, his natural human rights have been ceaselessly mutilated by not only the entire machinery of Colorado courts but also the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in Phillips’ favor, yet in such a narrow ruling as to allow a venomous transgender activist to immediately haul him back into court after speciously demanding that Phillips bake a transgender celebration cake.

(1/22/2023) Jacobson: Unsolved Leak Benefits “the Sheldon Whitehouses of the world whose political goal is to delegitimize the Supreme Court”

My interview on the Tony Katz Show about the SCOTUS announcement it hasn’t found the leaker: “To delegitimize it because it’s the one institution in government that has a majority conservative bent to it…. This is a war on the Supreme Court and unfortunately the Sheldon Whitehouses of the world are winning.”

I appeared on the Tony Katz Show on January 20, to talk about the failed attempt by the U.S. Supreme Court to identify the person or persons who leaked an early draft of the decision in the Dobbs abortion case. As you recall, that leak put conservative Justices directly in harms way.

The investigation seemed a mess based on what was publicly known: . . .

JUDICIARY

Kovac: Unvaccinated Kidney And Heart Patients Denied Transplants Get Day In Court With Michigan Hospital

“I just don’t see the logic of it,” stated Barranco in an interview with The Epoch Times. “Everybody knows an organ transplant procedure requires the nearly complete suppression of a recipient’s immune system so the body won’t reject it. “Then why do I need to be immunized against COVID before the operation?” When asked if he thought the vaccine would make any difference in his prognosis, he replied, “Yeah, the vax can kill me. “To qualify for a transplant both of my kidneys have to be functioning at 20 percent or less. What if the vax destroys the remaining function before the operation? If it does, I’m done.

“The jab does absolutely nothing beneficial for a transplant patient,” he said. […]  It is also unclear why, given the data showing numerous fully vaccinated people have come down with COVID-19 multiple times, the shot is still being regarded by some hospitals as an immunization. […]  Katie Shier, Barranco’s co-plaintiff in the case, is an unvaccinated 35-year-old mother of five who is a candidate for a heart transplant. She is being kept alive by a ventricular assist device that has developed an infection, according to the plaintiffs’ attorney, David Peters of the Pacific Justice Institute. […]  “I’m fighting for three things.

“The doctors said I have an infection that can only be cured by a heart transplant. “I believe it’s wrong to require someone to take a dangerous vaccine, so I want to see an end to the mandates. “And, most importantly, I do not want to take any vaccine or medication that has been tainted by abortion.

Kew: Federal Judge Strikes Down California’s Punitive COVID ‘Misinformation’ Law

A punitive California law that gave the state medical board the power to punish doctors for spreading alleged COVID-19 misinformation has been put on hold by a federal judge. Judge William B. Shubb of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California temporarily halted the law after opponents of the measure began the process of challenging it in court. Five doctors filed a lawsuit against state leaders, claiming the law violates their First Amendment rights to free speech and expression and their Fourteenth Amendment rights to due process of law. […]  Judge Shubb, an appointee during the Bush administration, sided with the group stating, “COVID-19 is such a new and evolving area of scientific study, it may be hard to determine which scientific conclusions are ‘false’ at a given point in time.” He went on to describe the term “misinformation” as “unconstitutionally vague.”

2022 ARIZONA MIDTERM ELECTION UPDATE

Heine: Arizona’s Democrat Secretary of State Asks Democrat AG to Investigate Republican Kari Lake For Campaign Violations

Arizona’s Democrat Secretary of State Adrian Fontes has asked Democrat Attorney General Kris Mayes to investigate Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake over potential campaign violations involving the disclosure of voter signatures. Lake is accused of committing a class 6 felony, which can result in fines, probation or a prison sentence from four months to 5 3/4 years. Lake lost her bid for governor in 2022 to then-Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs amid blatant and widespread voting machine issues that caused long lines and delays in Maricopa County on Election Day. Lake, who lost by approximately 17,000 votes, did not concede, and promptly filed a lawsuit challenging the botched 2022 election. […]  While awaiting a ruling from the Arizona Court of Appeals, Lake last week provided evidence of fraud in a Twitter post that included 16 photocopies of voters’ mismatched ballot signatures. “Today’s Senate Testimony CONFIRMS nearly 40,000 ballots illegally counted (10% of the signatures reviewed),” Lake tweeted. “I think all the ‘Election Deniers’ out there deserve an apology.” […] Busch testified that “tabulators failed at 235 times the Election Assistance Commission’s regulated failure rates.” […] During her massive Save Arizona rally on Sunday, Lake said that at a minimum of 140,000 fraudulent mail-in ballots with bad signatures were counted. […]  When he was the Maricopa County Recorder in 2018, Fontes was accused of destroying evidence to cover up “voting irregularities” to help then-Democrat, now-Independent  Kyrsten Sinema beat Republican Martha McSally. Years earlier, Fontes represented Manuel Celis-Acosta following his 2011 arrest in corrupt Obama-era Operation Fast and Furious investigation, in which federal officers encouraged gun stores to sell firearms to Mexican drug cartels. Acosta allegedly transferred around 2,000 weapons to the Sinaloa Cartel, including those that were allegedly used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, Fox News reported.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Ross: Chinese Companies Are Buying American Military Academies, Lawmaker Warns

Chinese firms with ties to the Chinese Communist Party have in recent years purchased American military academies that operate military officer training programs. In 2015, a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which serves as the Chinese Communist Party’s political advisory board, purchased Donald Trump’s alma mater, the New York Military Academy, for $16 million dollars. Conference member Mo Tianquan secured the purchase after a bidding war with another Chinese conglomerate. Two years later, a Chinese education conglomerate purchased the Florida Preparatory Academy as part of its plan to create “a global educational alliance system.” […]  Rep. Michael Waltz (R., Fla.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, says Chinese ownership of these schools could pose a national security threat.

Thornton: Our Freedom Is Getting More Fragile

In January of 1967, Governor Ronald Reagan famously said, “Freedom is a fragile thing and it’s never more than one generation away from extinction.”  Sixty-six years later, the truth of that observation is all around us. If we don’t reject the politicians and policies that compromise our freedoms, this generation may be the one who will live through that extinction. The erosion of our freedom is not a paranoid figment of the libertarian imagination. Recently the Cato Institution released its Human Freedom Index for 2022, and found that globally, freedom has declined. The Land of the Free has dropped seven points since last year, and now ranks 23rd of 160 nations. […]  And watch out for the Biden cartel’s attempt to nationalize rent control. This destructive intrusion into the law of supply and demand always ends up hurting rental property owners––more than 70% of whom are individuals–– and making housing scarce and expensive for the minority and lower-income renters whom the Dems claim to champion. How does this happen in a country known throughout the world for its love of freedom? Human nature is one reason. Every good that humans achieve, from freedom to flush toilets, starts out as rare luxuries for most humans, but as they spread to more and more people, they eventually become the default bare minimum. We start taking them for granted, and we become chronically dissatisfied, especially in a culture that believes in endless progress and an achievable utopia. Our seemingly cavalier attitude to freedom also is the result of the simplistic understanding of what freedom actually means.

Aleccia: FDA revamping foods program to move past ‘constant turmoil’

The head of the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday announced an overhaul of the agency’s food safety and nutrition division, vowing that a new structure will better protect consumers and the U.S. food supply. FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert Califf said he would create a new human foods program led by a deputy commissioner with authority over policy, strategy and regulatory activities for the part of the agency that oversees 80% of the foods Americans eat. “This is one of the most important changes in the history of the FDA,” Califf said in an interview. The move merges two existing FDA programs and some regulatory authorities. Tapping a single leader “unifies and elevates the program while removing redundancies, enabling the agency to oversee human food in a more effective and efficient way,” Califf said.

Penley: Biden admin hit for supporting age limits for social media, but not gender transitions: ‘Ludicrous’

Biden Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said on “CNN Newsroom” Saturday that he believes children under 13 are “too young” to be on social media because children are still “developing their identity,” and the remark is receiving some heat from online critics who called out the Biden administration’s recent take on gender transitions for minors. […]  “What about puberty blockers, Vivek?!” tweeted activist Chris Elston. […]  A third user slammed the narrative, writing, “Ludicrous, if a 13 y.o. Can decide to transition at age 11, then joining TikTok is of little consequence.”

Ghlienn: 11 US cities — all governed by Democratic mayors — listed among 50 most dangerous in world

Three U.S. cities — Baltimore, Memphis and Detroit — are ranked among the 20 most dangerous cities on the planet. The three cities have more in common than just violent crime. All three are run by Democrats. Baltimore ranks #15 on the annual dangerous cities list, with Memphis and Detroit close behind at #18 and #19, respectively. […] Two more U.S. cities run by Democrats appear among the 30 most dangerous in the world: Albuquerque (#23), where 45-year-old Tim Keller serves as the 30th mayor, and St. Louis (#27), where Tishaura Oneda Jones has served as mayor since April of 2021. Tracking back for a wider view yields a still grimmer perspective for Democrats, as another six Democrat-run cities rank among the world’s 50 most dangerous: New Orleans (#35), Oakland (#38), Milwaukee (#40), Chicago (#43), Philadelphia (#46), and Houston (#50). Again, all of these cities are run by Democrats.

BIDEN CRIME FAMILY

Billingsley: Biden’s China Spy Scandal

Joe Biden is taking heat for the classified documents he stashed at his home and garage. Though well worthy of attention, as Victor Davis Hanson notes, the documents scandal has overshadowed Biden’s indulgence of Chinese spies, on full display in a recent case. “Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn have dropped their case against a New York Police Department officer who had been accused of acting as a foreign agent on behalf of the Chinese regime,” The Epoch Times reports. Baimadajie Angwang, 33, an ethnic Tibetan and naturalized U.S. citizen, was arrested in 2020 for acting as an agent of Beijing, for wire fraud, making false statements, and obstructing an official proceeding. Prosecutors charge that Angwang reported on Chinese citizens, cultivated intelligence sources, and connected Chinese officials with senior contacts in the New York Police Department. The U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of New York recently filed a motion asking federal Judge Eric R. Komitee, a Trump nominee, to dismiss the indictment due to “additional information.” The Eastern District did not reveal the information or explain its relevance to the case. The move illuminates official Biden policy toward Chinese espionage in the United States.

Koenig: Arizona school board member leaks radical science curriculum to parents that will teach their children that sex isn’t binary and ‘many variations exist’

An Arizona school board member has revealed that one of the state’s largest school districts is considering the use of a textbook that teaches sex is not binary. Heather Rooks, who was recently elected to serve as the clerk of the Peoria Unified School District Board of Education, posted on January 20 that the district is considering using a textbook that claims there are ‘many variations’ of sex. The Savvas textbook also appears to touch on issues of mRNA vaccines and stem cell research. It has not yet been adopted for use at the Peoria high school, but the board will vote on using it or two others at a meeting in May.

DailyMail.com has reached out to both Rooks and the Peoria Unified School District for comment. […]  Rooks, a mother of five who ran for the Peoria school board on a campaign for parents’ rights, posted photos from the woke textbook on her personal Facebook on January 20. […]  It concludes: ‘Sex determination is an active area of research that should yield a more sophisticated understanding in years to come.’

Greenfield: How the IRS Enables a Pro-Pedophile Organization

Last year, Old Dominion University placed Allyn Walker on administrative leave after a chat with the Prostasia Foundation in which he claimed that being sexually interested in children isn’t necessarily wrong. Walker’s book about “Minor-Attracted People and Their Pursuit of Dignity” is typical of the efforts to excuse pedophilia that are promoted by the Prostasia Foundation. And Old Dominion University apparently has higher standards than the IRS. While the IRS has targeted a variety of Christian and conservative nonprofits, including Christians Engaged in 2021, the Prostasia Foundation continues to enjoy nonprofit status. Prostasia claims that it serves “children and youth” and “victims of crime and abuse”. […]  MAP, meaning Minor-Attracted Persons, is the preferred woke euphemism for pedophiles. But it’s not just the IRS. Prostasia is registered with Amazon Smile and has an official Amazon wishlist at the site. It’s also registered through the Fidelity Giving Marketplace and Benevity Causes. Benevity partners with companies like Coca Cola, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, Google and Starbucks . . .

his past Saturday night, the New York Rangers National Hockey League (NHL) team did something almost unbelievable. Though scheduled to wear LGBTQ “Pride” jerseys during pregame warmups, not one member of the team did so. Another recent example of defying LGBTQ+ “Pride” jersey demands in the NHL—which is run by people who are as governed by cowardice as those who run Major League Baseball, the National Football League and the National Basketball Association—was a player for the Philadelphia Flyers, Ivan Provorov, who refused to wear a “Pride” jersey 10 days earlier. As reported by Fox News:

“Provorov refused to participate in pregame warmups where players wore Pride-themed jerseys and wielded hockey sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape. ‘I respect everyone,’ he told reporters after they won the actual game against the Anaheim Ducks. ‘I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion.’” Provorov is Russian Orthodox. (Question: has one Protestant or Catholic NHL player refused to wear a “Pride” jersey?) […]  The only difference between the American Left and communist totalitarianism is opportunity.

Skenazy: Connecticut Parents Arrested for Letting Kids, Ages 7 and 9, Walk to Dunkin’ Donuts

It was Super Bowl Sunday in February 2019. Cynthia Rivers and her husband decided that their kids, ages seven and nine, deserved a long-promised treat for cleaning their rooms: the right to walk to Dunkin’ Donuts by themselves. (Reason has changed her name to protect the family’s anonymity.) This was in Killingly, Connecticut, a suburban town in the northeast part of the state. The Rivers’ lived near an elementary school, library, state police barracks, sidewalks, crosswalks, many Victorian-style homes, and the aforementioned donut shop. The kids gathered $7, and off they went. A few minutes later, the River parents heard a knock at the door. It was the police. The first cop to show up “said he didn’t think it was safe for the kids to walk by themselves,” Rivers tells Reason. “We told him that while we did feel it was safe, we agreed to not allow them to walk around town unsupervised.” “We thought that would have been the end of it,” Rivers added, “until three more officers showed up.” The first cop sent Rivers’ husband to retrieve the kids, who had only made it about two blocks. Then mom, dad, and the kids faced a barrage of questions. [NOTE: Yet parents aren’t approached, questioned  and arrested for taking their young children to  watch a sexually explicit drag show.]

Ghlionn: Corruption at the Border Is Fueling America’s Drug Crisis

The American Mind’s own Peachy Keenan recently took to Twitter to ask: “is the only reason why the US Gov refuses to seal the border, stop drug traffic, and get street addicts into rehab is that they are on the take from the cartels? It’s our biggest foreign import, no way they aren’t getting a taste.” The question got me thinking. As Bloomberg recently reported, due to the rise of fentanyl, the U.S. has entered its “most dangerous phase yet” in the country’s decades-long opioid epidemic. According to the report, Covid-19 played a key role in paving the way for the dangerous drug’s ascent. Bored and isolated by the pandemic, millions of Americans turned to the drug for comfort; hundreds of thousands overdosed and died. However, the fentanyl issue was a major problem long before Covid-19 brought the world to a screeching halt. The illegal drug trade in the United States has created a vast black market industry worth as much as $750 billion a year, a large percentage of which comes across our borders. Peachy Keenan’s point about illegal drugs being the country’s biggest foreign import appears, while hard to believe, to be accurate. How did it get to a point where the U.S. now imports more illegal drugs than cars, computers, and crude petroleum combined?

Pandolfo: ‘Anti-religious bigotry’: Nebraska Dem’s amdt. would ban kids from vacation Bible schools, church youth groups

State Sen. Megan Hunt says her amendment, which would ban children under 19 years of age from attending a “religious indoctrination camp,” is intended to kill the underlying bill, LB 371, a measure put forward by Republicans to ban minors from attending drag performances. The text of the amendment asserts there is a “well-documented history of indoctrination and sexual abuse perpetrated by religious leaders and clergy people upon children.” It is a tongue-in-cheek response to Republicans who have said children should not be exposed to explicit sexual content at drag shows. […]  It defines a “religious indoctrination camp” as “a camp, vacation Bible study, retreat, lock-in, or convention held by a church, youth group, or religious organization for the purpose of indoctrinating children with a specific set of religious beliefs.” The text mimics the underlying bill, LB 371, which Slama said “keeps kids from attending hyper-sexualized events.”

Farrell: California reparations panel calls for ten prisons to be CLOSED, prisoners to be paid ‘fair wage’ and given the right to vote

At their meeting in San Diego this weekend, where expert members of the public testified about various issues including prison reform, the panel preliminary approved recommending that ten prisons be shuddered while debating what should be done with the sites.  California state prisons house some of the most notorious prisoners in the country, including serial killers and lifelong gang members. The savings made from closing the prisons will be used to fund the work of the new government agency being set up to dispense the reparations, the California American Freedman Affairs Agency. The group has recommended more cushy treatment for current inmates, that includes eliminating certain types of punishment and paying them more money for work done while incarcerated. [NOTE: California Democrats have to know that the issue of reparations is a nonstarter. Perhaps this is an attempt by the party  to incite a race war?]

Smith: California cops shoot dead double amputee, 36, as he tries to run away from them on his stumps: Police department says officers feared he was going to ‘throw his knife at them’

His family say he lost the lower halves of his legs recently after an altercation with police in Texas. Lowe Jr. had just stabbed someone unprovoked, according to the police department, and was trying to run away from two officers on Thursday. First, they tried to Tase him, chasing him as he ran down the sidewalk, away from the wheelchair he had leaped from. […]  ‘The suspect attempted to throw the butcher knife at the officers again, at which time an officer involved shooting occurred,’ the LA County Sheriff’s Office release said. Lowe Jr. later died at the scene. His family is now demanding answers from the police department.

AP: Italy on alert as anarchists attack diplomatic missions

Italy’s government has increased security at its diplomatic missions around the globe in response to “a crescendo of terroristic attacks” by an informal anarchist network acting in solidarity with an imprisoned Italian militant, the foreign minister said Tuesday. Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani cited nearly a dozen attacks since the end of November, ranging from vandalism to explosive devices that have caused damage to Italian diplomatic targets in Argentina, Bolivia, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. No injuries have been reported.

(SICK) MAUREEN CALLAHAN: Welcome to MILF Manor! The most repulsive, exploitative, sordid, hate-to-hate show of all time – where blindfolded moms rub down shirtless sons and TV finally hits rock bottom

Has there ever, in the history of reality TV, been a more cynical and sleazy enterprise than ‘MILF Manor’? Believe me: I’m a fan of the genre. When done right, there’s nothing like reality television for psychodrama, interpersonal relationships, morality shifts, transactional behavior, physical endurance tests, plot twists and Machiavellian gamesmanship. No less a gold-star content creator than Mike White, of ‘White Lotus‘ fame, is also a super-fan of reality television, competing on ‘Survivor’ once and ‘The Amazing Race’ twice. […]  And there is no weirder s**t on television right now than TLC’s ‘MILF Manor,’ which promises ‘a dating experience like no other.’ That’s certainly one way to put it. The show’s queasy premise: Eight older mothers and their Gen Z sons gather in one waterfront mansion — moms and sons sharing bedrooms — and engage in all kinds of sexually uncomfortable, vaguely incestuous scenarios. [NOTE:  Cultural taboos continue to be dismantled brick by brick..]

Kuepper: Couple leave their baby at Israeli airport check-in while attempting to board Ryanair flight after refusing to buy a ticket for the child

A couple left their baby at an Israeli airport check-in while attempting to board a Ryanair flight after refusing to buy a ticket for the child. Two parents with Belgian passports were detained by police after leaving their baby at the check-in at the Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, according to the Jerusalem Post.

The couple attempted to board a Ryanair flight from Tel Aviv to Brussels, but they didn’t have a ticket for their baby. They refused to pay for one and seemed to have left their baby in the stroller as they walked to passport control.

Kent: David Beckham Adds Bugs to His Foodie Menu Delights

Former England football captain David Beckham is nothing if not adventurous. Currently touring Mexico, he took to social media on Monday to reveal a new fascination for something rarely if ever found in the high end restaurants he has been known to enjoy. Bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. […]  Taking to Instagram, Beckham shared photos with his 77 million followers of freshly prepared guacamole, rice pudding, salsa and salad, alongside a bowl of something others might argue is a little less than appetizing. […] Beckham’s ready recognition of adding dead insects to a menu comes as the European Union (E.U.) has given the green light for two more species of insect to be used as food for humans. Breitbart London reports a powdered form of Acheta domesticus — better known as the house cricket — has been given the green light for human consumption within the E.U., documents from the body have confirmed.

School children in the UK have also been singled out for a trial diet containing worms.

Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 29 minutes

NOTABLE QUOTES

Tucker Carlson: When he met with the group, Biden said, they spoke about “how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.” That’s what Joe Biden said verbatim. It’s on tape. So here you have the president of the United States pledging to increase food shortages at a press conference. That seemed like a newsworthy event, but not a single news organization in this country seemed to notice it happened. Nor did the White House correct it.

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: The #1 factor in the shortage of food production is the newly emboldened ‘western energy policy‘ and the impact energy has on everything from field (fertilizer) to fork (distribution).  Other factors include government policy that blocks food development (Dutch, Irish and Sri Lanka Farmers), a sudden uptick in food facilities having major fires and damage, and a series of issues with the feed that goes into the production of proteins.

Máximo Torero Chief Economist of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations: “But we have also “forgotten” the link between energy and food. We talk about the changing energy mix for climate issues, but that will increase the price of energy, of natural gas, and that will increase the price of fertilizer. That is what really is putting at risk the next supply and could create a problem of food availability as well as access.”

Michael contributor to The Economic Collapse: People on the other side of the planet are dropping dead from starvation right now, but most people don’t even realize that this is happening. Unfortunately, most people just assume that everything is fine and dandy. If you are one of those people that believe that everything is just wonderful, I would encourage you to pay close attention to the details that I am about to share with you. Global hunger is rapidly spreading, and that is because global food supplies have been getting tighter and tighter. If current trends continue, we could potentially be facing a nightmare scenario before this calendar year is over.

World Food Programme: In just two years, the number of people facing, or at risk of, acute food insecurity increased from 135 million in 53 countries pre-pandemic, to 345 million in 82 countries today.

Josh Hammer Newsweek opinion editor: Our 21st-century civilizational battles, in other words, are those waged between the popular sovereigntists and the globalist progressives who cling to every would-be “crisis” or “emergency” in a desperate attempt to attain and weaponize ever-more power. 

Hon. Thaddeus G. McCotter contributor to Human Events:  . . .the WEF’s climate apocalypse’s dog is not barking at communist China, because it is begging for treats. This inconvenient truth belies the impending climate apocalypse; evinces that this alleged “crisis” isn’t about controlling the climate; it’s about controlling you; and if the WEF gets its elitist way, the only impending “mass extinction event” will be of your liberty and prosperity.

Matthew Peterson contributor to Daily Caller: With metastasizing demand for education and credentialing, the revolutionary left dominates every part of American public life. It conquered the universities decades ago, when wokeness was called “political correctness,” but then it all seemed like a joke. Today, public school teachers, H.R. functionaries, government bureaucrats, and DEI commissars all speak the language of the old campus radicals. The liberty to speak the truth as they see it is a luxury now that many otherwise successful Americans can’t afford.

Allan J. Feifer contributor to American Thinker: Bill Ayers and his ill understood what it would take to bring America to its knees.  Changing our language, getting rid of our iconology (think America’s Flag and Pledge of Allegiance), and changing history to take away our natural pride, tenacity, and very intellectual being is required to get to their end game. We must fight back with force against those with a generation or two head start on the rest of us.  If someone comes into your house to kidnap your baby, no amount of your righteous indignation will suffice in defense.  We must commit to total war against those intruders who hold such blackness in their hearts. Such is another litmus test we will need to pass to survive. God Bless America!

Derek Hunter columnist for TownHall: If there is some good news out there, count on some leftists to come along and take a huge dump on it. It’s what they do – they are the nail in the tire of your homecoming float, the rock you twist your ankle on while taking the field for the Super Bowl, the open-mouth belch during a moment of silence. Only miserable human beings could be such a destructive force every single time there is something that could actually unite Americans, because unity is kryptonite to the progressive movement.

Dr. Raj Bhardwaj a Canadian family physician: “I didn’t know about this either until last year, but It turns out that after flu season, about three or four weeks later, there is a stroke season. And like you said, most of Canada is getting down off of a big hump of flu.” “So now we’re starting to see more strokes and a friend of one of my colleagues actually mentioned that at work the other day, ‘So if you noticed how many strokes we’re seeing, it’s a lot more than usual it feels like?'”  So anecdotally, we’re starting to see that.”

 Alex Timothy journalist for The Post Millennial: Canada is responsible for more organ transplants from its medical assistance in dying (MAiD) program than any other country in the world that offers this practice, according to a study published in the American Journal of Transplantation.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: If only we had some sort of, I don’t know, wall or something to keep vast numbers of people from just walking into America and then announcing that they don’t want to leave. And once they’ve invaded the country, what’s the big deal about invading a hotel?

Sundance: The 2024 GOPe Roadmap Appears Modified to Use Republican Governors Association

As I’m watching President Trump doing the familiar targeting of the GOPe roadmap, in this instance hitting the Club for Growth (CfG), my spidey senses are telling me their modified 2024 path will involve increased emphasis on the Republican Governors Association (RGA). In the 2020 midterms, the RGA headed by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey was positioning: specifically positioning Ron DeSantis.  If the modified establishment roadmap rolls out as it looks right now, I suspect the RGA will play a key role in it. President Trump hit back against the always insufferable Club for Growth yesterday.  President Trump hit back against the always insufferable Club for Growth yesterday.  The CfG together with the Business Roundtable and U.S. Chamber of Commerce are the political nexus for all things multinational, Wall Street and globalist. […] It is true that Club for Growth represent the “globalist,” which is to say, ‘America Last’, perspective.   DeSantis long political alignment with CfG to include his support for Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the tool for the Transpacific Partnership trade deal (TPP), is a part of his legislative record that Ron DeSantis cannot avoid.

Coyner: Is Donald Trump Worth The Fight?

Donald Trump was a great, if imperfect, president. By the third year of his presidency, the country was flourishing. The economy was roaring, jobs were up, incomes were up, gas prices were down, and America and Americans were doing fairly well. But then a funny thing happened on the way to the election. The swamp struck back via Covid and the George Floyd protests. Neither of those was of Trump’s making, but Democrats used both to steal the election. The Democrats didn’t create Covid or put Floyd in the morgue, but they used the lockdowns and the riots to sufficiently upend American life so that they could steal the election under the cover of chaos. Those were tests, and Donald Trump failed. With Covid, he allowed the country to be misled by a snake oil salesman and, with the Floyd protests, he didn’t send in the troops. It’s easy to understand, of course, why he failed. […]  That Donald Trump failed at leading the country through those two disasters is, sadly, understandable. Given the savagery and breadth of the relentless attacks on him, it would have taken someone just short of Zeus to have succeeded. The result of that failure was that Democrats stole the election, and Trump lost the White House.

Fast forward two years. […] . . . the question is: Has Trump learned the hard lesson… that the swamp is the Terminator, it will not stop, it cannot be negotiated with, the swamp knows no parties or limits, and it must be crushed? Otherwise, it will kill him, kill his supporters and kill the Republic of the United States.

Recent events seem to suggest that he . . . .

Boyd: Mark Houck, Pro-Life Dad Targeted By Biden Regime, Acquitted Of Trumped-Up Charges

‘The Biden Department of Justice’s intimidation against pro-life people and people of faith has been put in its place,’ Houck’s attorney says. On Monday a federal jury acquitted Mark Houck, the Christian pro-life activist whose house was swarmed by FBI agents last fall in front of his wife and children. The not-guilty verdict comes more than four months after the Biden administration accused Houck of violating federal law for protecting his son from an angry abortion activist across the street from a Planned Parenthood in 2021. After leaving the courtroom in a deadlock on Friday, on Monday a federal jury agreed Houck was not guilty of violating federal law, contrary to the Biden Department of Justice’s position.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) says the committee, officially dubbed the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, is composed of members who know how to “dig,” and they are hungry for answers after having their requests for documents and witnesses ignored when they were in the minority. Though the committee was established just a week ago, its first actions were on matters Stefanik and her colleagues have had their sights on for years. Stefanik says it’s time for answers. “Time is of the essence, we understand that,” Stefanik told the Washington Free Beacon. “Almost all these document requests have already been issued. There is a process, and we will follow that process, but we will leave no stone unturned.”

Sundance: Something’s Buggin’ Tucker Carlson, Food Production Is a National Security Issue

This is a topic we have covered extensively, and it is great to see Tucker Carlson questioning the sudden alignment of various elements that are creating a very real food insecurity problem. […]  This is all happening as the advancement of insects as a more “sustainable” protein replacement is being advanced by the same western governments.  However, if you happen to notice that all of the issues travel in the same direction, you are a conspiracy theorist, or something. We have been watching the predictable outcomes surrounding the western government shift to change energy policy for almost two years.  Approximately a year ago we first said, “the absence of food will change things.”

(Biden’s War) Horowitz: Russia’s war in Ukraine sparked a historic food crisis. It’s not over

Grain is once again leaving Ukrainian ports. The price of fertilizer is falling sharply. Billions of dollars in aid has been mobilized. Yet the world is still in the grips of the worst food crisis in modern history, as Russia’s war in Ukraine shakes global agricultural systems already grappling with the effects of extreme weather and the pandemic. Market conditions may have improved in recent months, but experts do not expect imminent relief. That means more pain for vulnerable communities already struggling with hunger. It also boosts the risk of starvation and famine in countries such as Somalia, which is contending with what the United Nations describes as a “catastrophic” food emergency.  [Note: When Biden poked the Bear, the Bear invaded Ukraine. Biden has yet to force Zelinsky to the table to engage in peace talk negotiations. Why hasn’t he?]

(1/13/23) Shah: Why Pakistan Is Facing a Growing Food Crisis

Last Saturday in Mirpur Khas, a city in Pakistan’s Sindh province, hundreds of people lined up for hours outside a park to buy subsidized wheat flour, offered for 65 rupees a kilogram instead of the current, inflated rate of about 140 to 160 rupees. When a few trucks arrived, the crowd surged forward, leaving several injured. One man, Harsingh Kolhi, who was there to bring a five kg bag of flour home for his wife and children, was crushed and killed in the chaos. As the dust settled, a group of people at the site took Kolhi’s body to the local press club and demanded the registration of a murder case against officials responsible for the stampede as well as the flour crisis across the province, according to Dawn. The incident is just one example of how the impact of the country’s burgeoning food shortage and a looming economic crisis are already being felt by Pakistan’s poorest.

Bavier, Sheikh, Ovaska & Bhandari: Africa’s food crisis is the biggest yet – five reasons why

In October, Nadifa Abdi Isak brought her malnourished daughters to hospital in Mogadishu. That day, a nurse said, 42 other children had already been checked into the emergency unit, ravaged by hunger. There were 57 the day before that. Staff at the Benadir maternity and paediatric hospital said admissions of malnourished children have more than doubled their patient numbers over the past year. They are now treating over 1,000 emergency cases each month. […]  Across Africa, from east to west, people are experiencing a food crisis that is bigger and more complex than the continent has ever seen, say diplomats and humanitarian workers. One in five Africans – a record 278 million people – were already facing hunger in 2021, according to data from the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It says the situation has worsened.

According to the clerics of the Green Cult, once we blow up our last coal mine, send all diesel engines to the wreckers, stop using concrete, reinvent sailing clippers, cover the grasslands with solar clutter and the hills with wind machines, and then slaughter all of our cattle…global climate will become serene — not too warm, not too cold.  Wild weather will cease, and there will be no more droughts, floods, cyclones, or snowstorms, and no more plant and animal extinctions. But the records written in the rocks tell a very different story about climate changes.  Even when nature was in full control, it was not a serene place.

MCCOTTER: Where Is the Climate Cult’s Outrage at Genocidal Communist China?

Speaking of logic – or, more accurately, the absence thereof – enter the febrile hive-minds of the elitist caricature that is the World Economic Forum (WEF). As Breitbart reported, in their annual gaggle to make the world safe for autocracy to protect their money, power, and privilege from we peons, there was a discordant Greek chorus of Philippics, calumnies, and condemnations of carbon emissions, fossil fuels; and dire warnings that the failure to act with catholic alacrity to stanch the climate apocalypse is perpetuating a “planetary crisis” spurring “mass extinction” that puts “humanity’s future at risk.” Per the ravings of Mr. Al Gore: . . . […]  One cannot note how Mr. Gore leavens his rant with the rich irony that humanity will lose its “capacity for self-governance” if we do not cede our liberty and prosperity to the World Economic Forum’s “one percent” and their political, bureaucratic, and journalistic courtiers. But, apparently, there is no time for such digressions. After all, “we have to act” to “save the future.”

Kotkin: The Great Train Robbery

We will soon be leaving the first quarter of the 21st century behind us. But in the minds of our transportation planners, the punditry, and some real estate interests, the way forward is actually to step back to the glories of the 19th century. At the state level, and most significantly in Washington, we are about to pour an unprecedented $20 billion more into transit, especially subways and other trains. This is folly: changing demographics and geography, as well as new technologies, suggest a very different future for how most of us get around. We are simply not going to become a nation of train travelers, and it would be pointless—not to say destructive—to try. There’s nothing new here. Much of the national media, in chorus with urban political and economic leaders, have been pushing these train-focused approaches since the days of Jimmy Carter. The stated aim is usually to move Americans away from their supposedly evil and pernicious love of the private automobile. Americans drive not because they irrationally love cars—although some do—but because it is simply by far the best way to get around.

Rockerll, Jr.: Playing with Nuclear Fire

I didn’t think it was possible for brain dead Biden and his gang of neocon controllers to do anything in foreign policy that was crazier than what they have already done. But I have to give them credit. They have managed to do it. They are sending tanks and weapons to the Ukraine, even though doing this risks a nuclear war that could destroy mankind. Although the US over the past year has supplied the Zelensky dictatorship with weapons, this wasn’t unlimited. Now, it looks like it is well on the way to becoming so. Here is a statement from Secretary of State Anthony Blinken about the new aid: . . .  […]  The Russians aren’t taking this lying down. “The speaker of Russia’s parliament warned Sunday that countries supplying Ukraine with more powerful weapons risked their own destruction, a message that followed new pledges of armored vehicles, air defense systems and other equipment but not the battle tanks Kyiv requested. ‘Supplies of offensive weapons to the Kyiv regime would lead to a global catastrophe,’ State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said. ‘If Washington and NATO supply weapons that would be used for striking peaceful cities and making attempts to seize our territory as they threaten to do, it would trigger a retaliation with more powerful weapons.’

Greenfield: Secretary of State Blinken Warns Israel Against Limiting Power of the Left

Out of line. Secretary of State Blinken visited Israel where he appeared to spend much of his time berating Prime Minister Netanyahu and the new Israeli government against democratic judicial reform. […]  The Left and the media have been going wild because they hate democracy and prefer to rule through the judiciary, not to mention prosecutors and assured institutional unelected systems. Secretary of State Blinken decided to dive in by warning Israel against fighting terrorism. […] Then the speech got into the main event. “Throughout the relationship between our countries, what we come back to time and again is that it is rooted both in shared interests and in shared values.  That includes  . . . […]  The general assumption is that Blinken was talking about judicial reform. Here he’s even more out of line than anywhere else because the Biden administration has no business in interfering in Israeli politics. But Blinken decided to go for it anyway while opposing democracy. During his meeting with leftist president Herzog, a figurehead with no meaningful authority, Blinken became even more explicit. […]  It is however nice of Secretary of State Blinken to come to Israel and tell Israelis to stop letting the people rule and go back to having the ‘Herzogs’ rule so that the Left can run the country.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICAL LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Klingenstein & Fonte: Woke Revolutionaries Versus Americanists

ndiana congressman Jim Banks recently announced the formation of an anti-woke caucus. Good. Banks is acknowledging, for the first time at a congressional level, the danger of woke tyranny. National Socialism (Nazism) and Communism were the challenges for prior generations of Americans. “Wokeism” is the challenge of our generation. We have reason to believe that Banks intends to put anti-wokeism at the center of Republican politics, which today has no center. America is in the middle of a Cold Civil War between woke revolutionaries—who believe America is and has always been systemically racist (evil), so that it must be deconstructed, de-legitimized (i.e., destroyed)—and those who believe that America is good, that its principles are the greatest antidote to racism ever created, and that preserving America and its principles is the highest and most urgent political calling. Let’s call these patriots “Americanists.” What should the anti-woke caucus do? […]  Explaining to Americans what exactly the woke regime is can be a challenge; the regime is slippery and amorphous. Normally, a totalitarian regime means the government controls all aspects of public and private life. The 20th century witnessed the hard totalitarian regimes of Nazism and Communism. Today, the woke regime can best be understood as a soft totalitarianism that seeks to marginalize, intimidate, and silence its opponents through censorship, coercion, media propaganda, intelligence agency operations, rigged elections, and the declarations of unelected bureaucrats and judges. The 21st century woke regime consists of a loose confederation of institutions: education, media, entertainment, businesses, Democratic politicians, the criminal justice system, and more. There is no overarching organization. But understanding and explaining, as well as possible, how that regime operates will be necessary to winning the war.

After embroiling America in forever wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, and other parts of the world, the Pentagon has succeeded in getting us closer to nuclear war since 1962, when it did the same in the run-up to the Cuban Missile Crisis. 2. America’s socialist system of immigration controls has brought nothing but death, destruction of liberty, perpetual crisis and chaos along the border, and an immigration police state to the borderlands. 3.  . . . 4. . . .5. . . . […]  It is time for the American people to do some serious soul-searching, especially before the Pentagon succeeds in getting us into a nuclear war with Russia, China, or both. It is time to acknowledge that it was a horrific mistake to adopt the welfare-warfare state way of life. It is time to restore the good, sound founding principles of our nation and get America back on the right track — toward liberty, peace, prosperity, charity, and harmony with the people of the world.

Sukoff: MMT Is Dead. It Must Now Be Buried for Good

In the late 1960s Milton Friedman clarified his famous quip by stating that “In one sense, we are all Keynesians now; in another, nobody is any longer a Keynesian.” In the first part, we are all Keynesians because the government’s out of control spending has forced us to be. In the latter sense, we are not Keynesians because that spending has decimated our financial well-being. Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is essentially an offshoot of Keynesianism in that government can spend ad nauseam and commensurately print money without any ill effect. With the historic inflation we are now experiencing, MMT has been thoroughly repudiated. MMT is dead–it must now be buried. In his basic economic textbooks, Professor Paul Krugman preaches Keynesianism. He teaches students about a government spending multiplier. In his fairy tale, . . .

Tanzi: Even on $100,000-Plus, More Americans Are Living Paycheck to Paycheck

[…]  The numbers likely reflect growing strain on household budgets after the cost of living surged, wages often failed to keep up, and pandemic savings got drawn down.

Sedacca: Memphis cops charged in Tyre Nichols murder hired after PD relaxed job requirements

At least two out of of five Memphis police officers charged with murder in the fatal beatdown of Tyre Nichols joined the force after the department relaxed its hiring requirements. Tadarrius Bean and Demetrius Haley both joined the Memphis Police Department in Aug. 2020, NBC News reported, more than two years after the department dramatically loosened the education qualifications to become an officer. Recruits no longer needed  . . .[…] losening the required qualifications however means that the department is ultimately getting “less desirable” job candidates, Mike Alcazar, an adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and a retired NYPD detective, told The Post. “They’re desperate. They want police officers,” Alcazar said. “They’re going through it, they check off some boxes, saying, ‘Ok, they’re good enough, get them on.” […]  The department also revealed that was even offering waivers for people who have been convicted on felony charges.

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

Heine: MIT Professor Calls For an Immediate Halt to ‘Failing’ mRNA Vaccination Programs

An MIT expert in analytics and risk management in health systems is calling for the immediate halt of worldwide mRNA vaccination programs due to “mounting and indisputable evidence” that the shots are harming young people. “They should stop because they completely failed to fulfill any of their advertised promises regarding efficacy,” said Retsef Levi, a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management since 2006. “And more importantly, they should stop because of the mounting and indisputable evidence that they cause an unprecedented level of harm, including the death of young people and children.”

[…]  “I have more than 30 years as a practitioner and an academic in using data and analytics to assess and manage risk particularly in the context of health systems, health policies, as well as management of safety and quality of manufacturing of biologic drugs,” he said.

Wehner: West Point continues to impose COVID-19 vaccine mandate, despite rule’s lift by Pentagon: report

The U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, plans to continue to impose restrictions on travel for those cadets who are not vaccinated, despite measures taken at the Pentagon to remove COVID-19 vaccine mandates, according to reports. Online news organization Just The News reported that military attorney R. Davis Younts said West Point was reimposing a travel ban on unvaccinated cadets, even though the U.S. military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate was lifted. At the same time, Congress is looking to make things right with military personnel who were unable to move up in rank or travel because they were unvaccinated.

Her body is a wonderland.  Well, it was a wonderland until late December, when Vossoughian had mysterious aches in her chest for 10 days, culminating in chest and shoulder pain so severe that she wound up in the emergency room. Where she was diagnosed with pericarditis, which was severe enough that she needed a procedure to drain the fluid from the sac around her heart. She was held for four nights before being discharged.

Swanson: Where Did All the Workers Go?

In a November 30, 2022, speech on “Inflation and the Labor Market,” Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell blamed most of the 3.5 million estimated shortfall in the U.S. labor force on premature retirements. He also blamed a large portion – between 280,000 and 680,000 – on “long Covid.” In a footnote, however, Powell acknowledged a far more somber factor: an estimated 400,000 unexpected deaths among working age people. It’s easy to blame these deaths on Covid-19. The virus is of course one significant cause. But it’s not nearly the only cause, especially among young and middle-age workers. We need better government data transparency to make a full assessment. Until then, we can proceed with others who track mortality for a living – life insurance companies. […]  So we dig deeper. If we remove both Covid-19 and unnatural deaths (homicide, suicide, overdose, etc.), we see a dramatic spike of natural, non-Covid-19 deaths among working age people beginning in the spring and summer of 2021. The CDC then stopped publishing the detailed data breaking out these particular categories. But we know this trend continued. In fact, it got much worse. The life insurance companies told us so. On a December 30, 2021, videoconference with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison reported with shock: . . . […]  Ed Dowd, a former BlackRock portfolio manager, points to a crucial peculiarity in his book Cause Unknown. Employed people with group life insurance policies are far healthier than their overall population cohort. They typically die at a significantly lower rate, just 30-40% of the overall population. This is an iron actuarial law. In 2021, however, as you can see in the chart directly above, these employed Americans died at excess rates far higher than their larger pool of less healthy peers.

Really hanging a lantern on the whole evil thing there, don’t you think? At an explicit drag show in Texas, children watched drunken, thong wearing drag queens do strip shows for money in a “community center” that used to be a church, which was being guarded by armed Antifa.

Rinehart: In The War To Destroy Society, Drag Queens Are The Shock Troops

Drag queens pose as family-friendly, old-fashioned entertainment, but there’s a subversive ideology under the pink glitter and hairspray.  […] Journalist Christopher Rufo took a deep dive into what he calls “the real story” behind drag queen culture. We should think of drag queens, he says, as the footsoldiers for an ideology that deconstructs normative human experience, beginning with breaking the binary of male and female. In drag pedagogy, gender differences are invented categories that shackle good people to rigid stereotypes, instruments of oppression to be shattered. […]  We might nurse the hope that our children will get an education, find a husband or a wife, settle down and raise a family, contribute their talents to others. This has been the primary vision of human flourishing and the nexus of strong communities for centuries. It’s just this vision that drag pedagogy seeks to dismantle. The concept of “family” becomes just as fluid and moldable as that of “gender.” […]  The most disturbing goal of drag queen culture is its determination to deconstruct childhood, robbing children of the innocence that protects their maturing process. Drag culture invades this protected space by pushing sexual content on children who, developmentally, would be baking cupcakes or playing soccer.

Blake: When Study Shows Transgender Medicine Hurts Kids, Activists And Media Allies Slant The Science

Dead patients aren’t usually considered a medical success story, but the transgender movement has never shied away from redefining reality to fit its ideology. A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine should be devastating for the transgender narrative, but trans activists and their allies are nonetheless trying to spin it as a success. The study, blandly titled “Psychosocial Functioning in Transgender Youth after 2 Years of Hormones,” had two subjects out of 315 commit suicide, which is not a good result for a treatment that is justified as preventing self-harm. Furthermore, males in the study showed no improvements in “depression and anxiety scores” or “scores for life satisfaction.” If giving female hormones to young men who identify as transgender does not improve their mental health, then there is no reason to keep giving female hormones to young men. […]  Transgender activists have to slant the science in this way because, despite its pretensions, transgender ideology is not scientific. The idea that a child can be born into the wrong body — a boy born into a girl’s body or a girl born into a boy’s body — is a metaphysical or spiritual dogma; there is nothing scientific about it. And though medicine can, to some extent, alter bodies into a facsimile of the other sex, it cannot make a man into a woman or a woman into a man.

EDUCATION INDOCTRINATION

Kearns: New feminist chemistry class teaches that science is racist

A recent article published in the Journal of Chemical Education describes the development of a Feminism and Science course at East Carolina University (ECU) that was offered at the university. The course, the authors argue, should serve as a “model” for other educators to learn from, “present[ing] this work as an example of a transformative pedagogical model to dismantle White supremacy in Chemistry.” The article, titled “A Special Topic Class in Chemistry on Feminism and Science as a Tool to Disrupt the Dysconcious Racism in STEM,” argues for a pedagogical framework based on “Critical Race Theory and intersectional feminism.” One of their goals “was to shine light, through this process, [on] how scientific epistemology and culture have strong links with capitalism, enslavement, colonization, and exploitation of female-bodied folks.” Students also learned the definitions of terms such as diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and systemic racism.

A CHURCH IN CRISIS

Benton: Late Journalist George Neumayr Warned: ‘The Clock On Catholic Civilization Is Nearing Midnight’

Late last week, George Neumayr, author, journalist, and senior editor for the American Spectator became the third high-profile Catholic to die in as many weeks. Neumayr suddenly perished on Thursday, Jan. 19, after contracting malaria in the west African nation of the Ivory Coast, where he was undertaking research for an upcoming project on the Catholic Church in Africa. The year began on a dismal note, with Pope Benedict XVI’s death on Dec. 31. Two weeks later, the conservative Australian Cardinal George Pell unexpectedly succumbed in Rome after a routine hip operation. But if the loss of Benedict after a decade of frailty and seclusion was deeply upsetting, and if Pell’s sudden death, days after he authored a stern rebuke of the Vatican’s neo-Marxist interpretation of faith and morals, was dismaying, Neumayr’s premature demise was distinctly unsettling. All three — pope, cardinal, and journalist — have bequeathed a message of urgency, nay emergency, regarding the perilous road the church is treading, a warning that should not be buried with them.

Peterson: Here’s The Main Problem With Kids These Days

The only America young adults have ever known is a regime of steadily increasing tyranny and suffocating disappointment. It can be difficult, for those who remember the high-water mark of American power, to understand the cramped cynicism or autocratic wokeness of younger generations. But bridging this chasm between generational “lived experiences” and squarely facing the landscape of reality is an existential necessity for all who wish to save America. The America that shaped all of us for whom the fall of the Iron Curtain marked the triumph of “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” — to borrow a phrase from Superman — is dead and gone. The culture that created Superman and his motto is no more. And those of us who remember where we were when the Berlin Wall came down experienced a kind of liberty and optimism that has been lost for decades. […]  It should be no surprise, then, if we consider the ever-increasing tyranny of the last two decades, that young people embrace the woke power hierarchies in which they have been raised, or rebel in nihilistic ways. The walls have always been closing in on their hopes and dreams.

Smythe: Researchers Claim They’ve Deciphered An Ancient Tablet That Confirms A Biblical Narrative

Two French scholars claimed to have deciphered the Mesha Stele in early January, revealing a reference to the “House of David” well before Jesus Christ walked our Earth. The Mesha Stele, or Moabite Stone, is an ancient basalt rock tablet discovered in 1868 that dates back to at least the 9th century BC, according to World History. After some significant social upheaval at the location of its discovery, at least the last five lines on the stone were broken, so it was unclear how the narrative ended. Shortly before the Mesha Stele was damaged, a paper-mache impression (known as a paper squeeze) was made of the inscription, which has now been used in the latest analysis.

Meta (Facebook), Twitter and a wealth of other platforms currently allow young teenagers to join their platforms. […]  “If parents can band together and say, you know, as a group, we’re not going to allow our kids to use social media until 16 or 17 or 18 or whatever age they choose, that’s a much more effective strategy in making sure your kids don’t get exposed to harm early,” he said.

Peterson told Rogan that he will be gathering a consortium this October/November in London as a kind of rival to the WEF. This group will discuss six questions pertaining to global philosophy and policy. While this first conference will be invite-only, it will be public, and Peterson noted that if successful, he would like to expand yearly. Some of the ideas — which are aimed at providing an “alternative vision of the future … an alternative to that kind of apocalyptic narrative that’s being put forward, at least implicitly, by organizations like the WEF” — are as follows: . . .  […]  “I’ve been trying to understand the driving ideas underneath this globalist utopian tyranny that seems to be developing from the top-down, and I think it’s driven at least in part by  . . .

BOOK REVIEW: THE SUMTER GAMBIT: HOW THE LEFT IS TRYIMG TO FOMENT A CIVIL WAR  BY ROBERT SPENCER

Bawer: The Sumter Gambit

Robert Spencer reveals how the Left is trying to foment a civil war. From birth, the United States was a house divided. Slavery had existed always, everywhere; but America was different – founded on a set of noble ideas with which the institution of slavery was utterly at odds. Still, in order to establish – and then to preserve – a union that was half slave and half free, America’s leaders repeatedly put off the day of reckoning. Jefferson condemned slavery in a draft passage of the Declaration of Independence, only to take it out to ensure passage. The Constitution’s framers dealt with the issue by concocting the three-fifths compromise. In 1820, the Missouri Compromise balanced the admission of slave Missouri with that of free Maine; the Compromise of 1850 admitted free California but also introduced the Fugitive Slave Act, compelling the return of escaped slaves to their owners. Along the way, some events upset the constant, desperate attempts at balance. […] And so it was war. The longstanding divisions had finally split the house in two. Today, argues Spencer, America is in a not dissimilar fix – although, in his estimation, the divisions now are even wider. In 1861, North and South shared “a common culture, a common religion, a common heritage, and a common outlook”; today, left and right barely share “a common language.” […]  He also compares Biden’s speech to one given by Hitler on March 23, 1933, in support of a piece of legislation called the Enabling Act. Of course, we’re never supposed to compare anyone to Hitler. Leo Strauss called it reductio ad hitlerum. But why is this so verboten? There have been tyrants as terrible as Hitler in the past – in the twentieth century alone we had Stalin and Mao – and there will be terrible ones in the future. If an American president stands in front of a blood-red background, with Marines at attention behind him, and demonizes his political opponents in fiery language that’s eerily reminiscent of a specific Hitler speech, is it unreasonable to note the similarity?

Rick Moran contributor to PJ Media: After securing the most modern, lethal battle tanks on planet earth, Ukraine now wants fourth-generation F-16 fighter jets. Begging your pardon, Mr. President, but what’s next? Nuclear weapons?

Eric Utter contributor to American Thinker: The CEO of Pfizer is on record as saying that “a dream” that he and his WEF-loving peers had, back in January of 2019, was to “reduce the number of people in the world by 50%.” By 2023.

We will not submit. When we have done this, and only when we have done it, will victory in this spiritual war come within reach.

Thomas D. Klingenstein and John Fonte contributors to the American Mind: First and foremost, the public must understand that America is at war. It must be made clear that the woke revolutionaries wish not to reform America along the lines of, say, the New Deal or Great Society but ultimately want to destroy the American way of life. The woke revolutionaries do not hide their objective; indeed they flaunt it. They keep telling us their actions are designed to “fundamentally transform” the American way of life.

Shurk contributor to American Thinker: In a time of social division and disintegration, rampant immorality, and intentional cruelty, Hamlin’s collapse may have led to the first moment since the 9/11 terrorist attacks twenty years ago when so many Americans, united in common purpose, bowed their heads and prayed together.  When it finally became clear a full week later that the young player would not only live, but also most likely recover physically, Americans all over the country and from all walks of life knew they had witnessed something miraculous.

Michele Gama Sosa reporter for Daily Caller: Instead of pussyfooting around the true purpose of the Second Amendment with stale references to hunting and self-defense against criminals (which is still very important), it’s time to bluntly remind politicians in both parties that the Second Amendment is first and foremost a protection against people like them. Not against the vague concept of a tyrannical government, but real, corrupt, power-hungry officials who never saw a limit they wouldn’t overstep.

Weber: Trump proposes big changes to public education, saying it’s been overtaken by ‘Radical Left maniacs’

Continuing to craft a second generation of his policies, former President Donald Trump is proposing a dramatic change in the education sphere that would empower parents to elect and fire school principals. “Our public schools have been taken over by the Radical Left maniacs,” Trump said in a video announcement released late Thursday night. Trump said the first step in his plan to “save American education” and restore power to parents would be to cut federal funding for any school or program pushing Critical Race Theory, gender ideology or other “inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content to children.

Downey, Jr.: Call 2024 What It Is — Trump vs. Communism — Choose Wisely: It Might Be Our Last Election

Author David Horowitz’s new book Final Battle: The Next Election Could Be the Last suggests that the communists could be on the threshold of ending democracy in the United States. He shouldn’t be ignored as a hyperbolic whackjob. The DOJ and FBI have been weaponized against patriots. That Betsy Ross flag flying on your meemaw’s porch is now considered a sign of “military extremism.” Concerned parents who show up at school board meetings are considered “terrorists” by federal law enforcement. Confused, attention-hungry kids can legally go to California and have their genitals removed without their parents’ approval. How can you not see it? Horowitz recently pointed out two phenomena taking place that could save our nation: Trump’s rallies, which have created a huge conservative movement, and parents revolting against the commies in our kids’ schools. […]  The video below is the CEO of Pfizer — one of the companies that makes clot shots — talking about reducing the population by 50%. […]  Check out the WEF’s “predictions” for what the world will be like in seven years. Spoiler alert: you’ll own nothing, eat less meat, and be neighbors with people from nations that hate you. Seriously, you need to watch this: . . .

[…]  Put your fragile feelings on the back burner, ladies. If you think mean tweets are bad, wait until you stand in line for three hours to buy toilet paper, or worse, your child dies because the World Health Organization (WHO) decided your kid was the wrong race to receive medicine. [NOTE: The Pfizer CEO clip doesn’t appear to be altered however, in today’s tech world, anything is possible.]

Zubatov: Plumbing ChatGPT’s Left-Liberal Biases

Recently, I documented the flagrant political bias of the headline-grabbing, machine-learning chatbot known as ChatGPT by showing how, though it had no problem acknowledging the racial complexion of poverty in America, it absolutely and adamantly refused to acknowledge some basic, albeit uncomfortable, statistical realities about the racial complexion of crime. I decided to explore further by asking ChatGPT a host of questions to test its political preferences on a wider range of issues. I expected to find bias. What I did not expect is how shameless and barefaced the bias would be. Bear in mind, ChatGPT is hell-bent on refusing to ascribe to itself any opinions or beliefs whatsoever. If you ask it directly what its opinion of any issue is, you will invariably get back a more polite version of, “Sorry, buddy; I’m just artificial intelligence. I don’t do opinion.” And yet, if you ask it pretty much any political question, you’ll get opinions— incredibly biased opinions—in boatloads.

Clark: Google’s new AI turns text into music

Google researchers have made an AI that can generate minutes-long musical pieces from text prompts, and can even transform a whistled or hummed melody into other instruments, similar to how systems like DALL-E generate images from written prompts (via TechCrunch). The model is called MusicLM, and while you can’t play around with it for yourself, the company has uploaded a bunch of samples that it produced using the model. The examples are impressive. There are 30-second snippets of what sound like actual songs created from paragraph-long descriptions that prescribe a genre,

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = ACCUMULATING POWER & CONTROL

Thorne: The Climate Faithful Have Developed Religious Dietary Restrictions (and You Guessed It — We’ll All Be Expected to Eat This Way)

Jews eat kosher, Muslims have halal, Hindus eschew meat, and many Christians fast during Lent. So naturally, the fastest-growing religion today — earth and climate worship — is developing its own faith-based dietary restrictions. “Climatarians” (also called “reducitarians” or “climavores”) are people who make their food choices based on how what they eat will impact the earth, with the aim of reducing their carbon “foodprint.” The Earthist version of original sin is that, simply by living, people commit climate sin every time they eat, breathe, travel, and heat or cool their homes. Naturally, the younger generations are the most pious Earthists, having been recently exposed to the most evangelical Earthist education system yet. “Climavores, as you might expect, follow a diet less defined by ingredients—unlike veganism, for example,” global consulting firm Kearney informs us. “Instead, Climavores actively make food choices based on climate impacts, practicing climate-conscious eating based on a series of dietary trade-offs intended to benefit the planet.” […]  And as the older faiths are gradually supplanted by the Church of the Climate, societal changes are in the works that reflect and support the new religion. Axios reports: . . .

[…] But Leftists are nothing if not authoritarian, and soon the choices will be made for you. More from Kearney: . . .

Queen: It’s Now Cheaper to Drive 100 Miles in a Gas-Powered Car Than in an EV

The Biden administration is always telling us that the best thing we can do is buy an electric vehicle. In fact, various members of the administration treat it almost flippantly — it’s a no-brainer that you should buy an expensive electric car or two. Doing so will rescue the planet from certain environmental collapse and will save you loads of money, even though the average cost of an electric vehicle was $66,000 as of August of last year. Plenty of people are falling for it, and it’s easy to see why. The siren song of the tax credit is hard to ignore, and the idea of not having to contend with rising prices at the gas pump is attractive. But is it all true?

CORRUPT INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Kimball: Justice for John Eastman

At the top of that hit list is John Eastman, the distinguished constitutional scholar who made the unforgivable error of offering legal advice to President Trump in the turbulent aftermath of the 2020 election. I have written about Eastman before, both in this space and elsewhere. He has had his life turned upside down. He was shuffled out of his position as dean of the Chapman Law School and has been treated as a pariah by colleagues in his profession. Anti-Trump protestors regularly congregate at the foot of his driveway—fortunately, a long one—to vilify him and his association with the Bad Orange Man. Now the State Bar of California has announced that it has filed an official complaint of 11 charges against Eastman, alleging that he endeavored to “plan, promote, and assist then-President Trump in executing a strategy, unsupported by facts or law, to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election by obstructing the count of electoral votes of certain states.” Not a single one of those charges is true.[…]  As Margot Cleveland wrote at The Federalist, the California Bar has essentially weaponized its disciplinary process along ideological or political grounds. If the reasoning behind the California Bar were to prevail, Cleveland observed, then Senator Ted Cruz and the attorneys general from 18 states should all be disbarred. As Eastman noted in his remarks Friday, the fundamental message implicit in the California Bar’s vendetta against him is this: “We’re the government. We’ve defined what is truth. How dare you question us.”

Pullmann: Classified Documents Are A New Potential Trap For Any Politician Who Crosses The Deep State

Procedural complaints about classified documents are quickly turning into a catch-all trap that can depose duly elected officials, especially those tasked with oversight of U.S. intelligence agencies. Last August, an unprecedented classified document complaint provided a pretext for an FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s home, in an eerie echo of the use of police and military resources against opposing politicians typical of banana republics. That administrative power flex has now been turned into the unprecedented appointment of three special counsels, most recently against the deeply unpopular current Democrat Party figurehead, Joe Biden. This all reverses the American structure of elected officials maintaining oversight of unelected permanent administrators. Instead, we now have unelected bureaucrats performing selective “oversight” of elected officials. Of course, that pattern erases Americans’ deepest political birthright: government of the people, by the people, and for the people. A government not ultimately controlled by elected representatives of the citizenry is not a republic, nor is it any kind of democracy. Without elections truly affecting government policies, the original United States is no more and its elections are a sham.

The Right Scoop: Biden officials BLOCK Senate Intel Committee from briefing on Biden’s classified documents

Both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Intel Committee are fuming after Biden’s ODNI refused to give them a briefing on the classified documents found all over Biden’s home and think tank. They were told that they couldn’t even be briefed in a classified setting. Here’s more from the Washington Times:

[…]  “I’m very disappointed with the lack of detail and a timeline when we’re going to get a briefing,” Mr. Warner said as he departed the meeting at the Capitol. “Every member of the committee, regardless of Democrat or Republican were unanimous in the position that we’re left in limbo until somehow a special counsel designates that it’s okay for us to get briefed, is not going to stand.” Mr. Warner’s frustrations were echoed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, the top Republican on the committee. He said the administration’s stonewalling impeded the committee’s ability to do its job of providing oversight of the intelligence community.

The Right Scoop: Mark Levin says Biden needs to be questioned under oath by federal grand jury over classified docs

Levin also hammers a ridiculous story put out by USA Today claiming that VP Biden can declassify documents. “So after everybody is saying Trump can’t [declassify classified documents], because there’s no evidence that he did, they say the Vice President can. No he can’t!”, says Levin. The USA Today article suggested there’s a 2009 executive order where Obama said certain people could declassify documents, which would include the Vice President. But Levin says Biden could not declassify documents and the reason is the Constitution. He says the president can declassify documents – at will – because he’s the head of the executive branch. The Vice President is not.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE SECOND AMENDMENT

Clements: Colorado to Consider Its Own Gun Ban

Colorado appears ready to join other states in quashing Second Amendment rights. A draft of the “Mass Shooting Prevention Act,” expected to be introduced in the upcoming Colorado General Assembly legislative session, was made public, and Second Amendment advocates are concerned.

“This bill uses the most insane parts of the laws from California and New York,” Taylor Rhodes, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), told The Epoch Times. “This doesn’t just ban many commonly owned pistols and shotguns; this will ban almost 70 percent of all firearms overnight.” Rhodes was made aware of the bill draft almost three weeks ago. He said the proposed legislation is designed to greatly diminish Second Amendment rights in Colorado. “You might as well call this the ‘Gun Owners Get Out of Town Bill,’” Rhodes said. The proposed law expands the definition of “assault weapons” to cover

GAMA SOSA: Democrats Know The Real Purpose Of The Second Amendment — That’s Why They’re So Afraid Of It

The Second Amendment is once again in the Democrats’ crosshairs amid mass shootings, with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s latest “assault weapons” ban, and now Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claiming that the Founding Fathers would have supported banning certain guns. […]  When the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it was a shock to the world of monarchs and tyrants who kept their populations in line by force and decree. Its protections make America unique. Virtually no country has anything close to it. It gave meaning to the idea of being a citizen of a nation instead of the subject of a despot. The Militia Act of 1792 clarified that “every citizen, so enrolled and notified, shall, within six months thereafter, provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt…” In other words, citizens were required to own their own “weapons of war” for military service and presumably for other purposes as gleaned from the Founders’ own writings. George Mason explicitly wrote that the “militia” was made up of “We the People” and did not include elected officials.

Carlson & Gomez: McCarthy and Biden to meet on spending and debt ceiling; McCarthy says there will be no default

Speaker Kevin McCarthy says he is set to meet with President Joe Biden on Wednesday to discuss the Republican House majority’s views on federal government spending and raising the country’s borrowing limit in order to avoid a debt default. “I know the president said he didn’t want to have any discussions, but I think it’s very important that our whole government is designed to find compromise,” McCarthy said during an appearance on Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I want to find a reasonable and a responsible way that we can lift the debt ceiling but take control of this runway spending,” McCarthy said, later adding, “I don’t think there’s anyone in America who doesn’t agree that there’s some wasteful Washington spending that we can eliminate.”

McCotter: A Win for Security and Sanity

Previously, I offered some advice to the new U.S. House GOP majority regarding committees, specifically that investigatory committees are not ends unto themselves but a means to crafting legislation that will improve Americans’ lives. Presently, then, let us look at the creation of a select committee that augurs well for the national security of our nation. […]  Following a leadership meeting circa 2007, I once referred to “Communist China.” A senior, powerful member from California countered, “there is no need to be provocative. There are no communists anymore.” I reminded my colleague how “that will come as a surprise to the over 70 million members of the Chinese Communist Party.” Fast forward 15 years, when another California Republican, Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), had a different opinion; and led the drive to establish the U.S. House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party. The bipartisan vote was 365-65. Per Reuters, all 65 Nays were cast by Democrats, who chose to put party ahead of country. […] Representative of the Democrats who voted to establish the committee was U.S. Representative Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.). According to a report by Samantha Aschieris of the Daily Signal (the news outlet of the Heritage Foundation), Moskowitz rightly asserted: . . .  […] Further, per the Daily Signal, the committee’s new chair, Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) certainly understands the stakes and intends to commence this task with alacrity: . . . […]  The committee will have to navigate some treacherous and predator-infested waters in the swamp, however.

Whedon: Jim Jordan probe into FBI, DOJ, DHS politicization takes shape with flurry of interview requests

With a flurry of interview requests on Friday to federal officials and Biden administration allies — coupled with a pointed warning of potential subpoenas to follow — House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan signaled his resolve to investigate allegations of growing politicization in federal law enforcement and administration moves to intimidate opponents and chill dissent. The Ohio Republican sent letters seeking testimony to five individuals: former head of the Department of Homeland Security’s abortive Disinformation Governance Board Nina Jankowicz; FBI Human Resources Branch Executive Assistant Director Jennifer Leigh Moore; former interim Executive Director and CEO of the National School Boards Association Chip Slaven; National Assessment Governing Board Trustee Viola Garcia; and former FBI agent Tim Thibault. The Daily Caller first reported on the letters to the first four of the five recipients listed above. The House Judiciary GOP Twitter account later published all five letters. The committee account indicated that a “compulsory process” would soon follow. Each recipient held or currently holds a position of influence relevant to alleged government efforts to censor or harass political opponents or politicize federal law enforcement.

Krisinger: Who does Representative Maria Salazar represent?

When a citizen is elected to Congress, they are conferred the title of “representative,” with each “representative” elected to a two-year term “serving the people of their specific congressional district.” So it was disconcerting to hear Representative Maria Elvira Salazar, a Republican from Florida’s 27th district, address the recently concluded World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, in her official congressional capacity and declare that she “represents” the millions of migrants presently inside the sovereign borders of this nation illegally. […]  Whether she unwittingly made her comments, not realizing that they would be taken as coming in her official capacity, she — not surprisingly — generated a loud and vocal reaction on social media.  Comments were quick to point out that the relatively junior Representative Salazar may be confused or not understand who exactly she was elected to “represent” in Congress.  Those millions of migrants are not her district’s constituents, and her ethnic affinity (she is Cuban-American) for most of the migrants does not supplant or supersede her congressional responsibilities for her district’s constituents.

Buck’s support for Omar put Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s desire to remove her from the Committee in danger of failing after two other Republicans have already signaled opposition to it. “I think that we should not engage in this tit-for-tat,” Buck said during an interview. “I have a little bit less certainty about Congressman Schiff and Swalwell on Intelligence just because it’s a little bit different than a regular committee,” he added. “But I’m going to think through that and make a decision.”

(H/T GC) Andrzejewski: Newsom Twosome: Siebel Newsom’s Films – Shown In Middle Schools – Feature Porn, Radical Gender Ideologies, And Her Husband Gavin

2.6 million students across 11,200 classrooms and 5,000 schools are subjected to Newsom’s films and curricula. FLOWCHART: How Jennifer Siebel Newsom used taxpayer dollars to trade with herself, her nonprofit organization, and her for-profit business. The organization refused to disclose how much of their screening revenues came from California public schools. California Governor Gavin Newsom and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, are the dream team. He runs the state and she’s a nonprofit founder, entrepreneur, and filmmaker.While her husband attends to state business, Siebel Newsom engages in her passion: advancing “gender justice” through her charitable nonprofit The Representation Project. According to tax documents the organization is “committed to building a thriving and inclusive society through films, education, and social activism.”   […]  Auditors at OpenTheBooks.com watched Newsom’s movies and read the lesson plans. What we found was, at times, shocking: sexually explicit images, political boosterism, and something called “The Genderbread Person.” Screenshot from “age-appropriate” middle school curriculum video for Miss Representation; see full video here.  Miss Representation’s curriculum links to “age-appropriate” video clips in its K-12 lesson plans and says that the full film is rated PG-14. (Certainly, parents may still object to clips from the “age-appropriate” film like the animated, upside down stripper shown above). [NOTE: Gavin Newsom, the Democrat 2024 nominee for president?]

Newman: UN Pushing New Age Spirituality on Schoolchildren With SEL, Neuroscience

The organization in question, part of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is known as the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development, or UNESCO MGIEP for short. Dominated by pagans, communists, New Agers, and fringe psychiatrists, the India-based UN institute has global reach, boasting that it guides education policy worldwide. Even a brief perusal of its website and reports reveals serious cause for alarm.  […]  At the end of the short video, the UN institute sums up its aims: “Changing mindsets,” “Challenging norms,” and “Transforming education for humanity.” […] The individuals involved also give the agenda away. Consider, for example, that the institute was launched by scandal-plagued UNESCO boss Irina Bokova. Before joining the UN, Bokova served as a high-ranking official in the mass-murdering Communist regime in Bulgaria. The New American exposed Bokova’s history of extremism in a series of articles years ago when she was being groomed for even higher office.  She is hardly the only known and unrepentant communist who has been instrumental in the UN’s “education” outfit. Another, Roza Otunbayeva, served as minister of foreign affairs and deputy head of government for the mass-murdering Soviet Kyrgyz Republic before serving as president of the Soviet National Commission of UNESCO and then taking a leadership role at the UNESCO MGIEP. […] Another leading advocate of UN-backed global spirituality with close ties to the population-control agenda is Azza Karam, the head of Religions for Peace. The global alliance of self-proclaimed religious leaders ranging from self-styled Christians to full-blown pagans is funded by the UN, the U.S. State Department, billionaire globalist George Soros, the Rockefeller clan, and more. Prior to taking over as secretary-general of the outfit, Karam worked at the ruthless population-control agency UN Population Fund (UNFPA), infamous for cooperating on forced abortions and other atrocities with the mass-murdering Chinese Communist regime in enforcing its barbaric one-child policy.

 Salgado: Utah Educators and Union Officials Caught Boasting of Secretly Teaching CRT

“You teach it to a group of seniors at West Jordan High and they don’t tell their parents.” Administrators, educators, and union officials in Utah were caught on video boasting about how they managed to keep teaching critical race theory or LGBTQ concepts to students, despite Utah’s bans on CRT in the classroom, according to a Jan. 27 tweet thread from Accuracy in Media. The Utah legislature passed two resolutions in May 2021 to ban CRT from schools, and the Utah Board of Education then approved similar restrictions in June 2021, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. Which apparently hasn’t stopped the more zealous pro-CRT Utah educators from trying to brainwash students.

A CULTURAL SHIFT?

Snyder: Have You Heard of the “Tradwife Movement”?

In our time, everything about marriage, family and gender is being redefined, but not everyone is happy with these changes.  In fact, many long for a bygone era when life was simpler and families seemed to be much happier.  This desire to recapture what has been lost has spawned the “tradwife movement”, and this movement has been causing a tremendous amount of controversy all over social media in recent months.  Needless to say, many modern feminists absolutely abhor the social values of the 1950s, but it is precisely those values that “tradwives” are seeking to promoteOn certain corners of the internet, a segment of women is exhibiting a nostalgia for an era it has never known. These millennials and zoomers glamorize the aesthetics of 1950s Americana, donning retro fit-and-flare dresses and posting vintage illustrations of aproned housewives placing dinner on the table. The mainstream media has been trying to downplay the significance of this movement, and CNN even went so far as to label tradwives as a “fringe group”… […]  The Californian, who stays at home to cook, clean and look after the children while her husband goes out to work, said she adopted the homemaker mindset because her own mom wasn’t around enough when she was a kid. Spending more time with our children should actually be a national priority, because the truth is that our kids are a mess.

CHINA AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Lin & Strumpf: China’s Top Nuclear-Weapons Lab Used American Computer Chips Decades After Ban

China’s top nuclear-weapons research institute has bought sophisticated U.S. computer chips at least a dozen times in the past two and a half years, circumventing decades-old American export restrictions meant to curb such sales. A Wall Street Journal review of procurement documents found that the state-run China Academy of Engineering Physics has managed to obtain the semiconductors made by U.S. companies such as Intel Corp. and Nvidia Corp. since 2020 despite its placement on a U.S. export blacklist in 1997. The chips, which are widely used in data centers and personal computers, were acquired from resellers in China. Some were procured as components for computing systems, with many bought by the institute’s laboratory studying computational fluid dynamics, a broad scientific field that includes the modeling of nuclear explosions. Such purchases defy longstanding restrictions imposed by the U.S. that aim to prevent the use of any U.S. products for atomic-weapons research by foreign powers. The academy, known as CAEP, was one of the first Chinese institutions put on the U.S. blacklist, known as the entity list, because of its nuclear work.

Chang: Crazy Optimism About China’s Economy

China’s propagandists tell us the Chinese economy this year will “accelerate to 4.8%.” Foreign analysts are even more bullish. Goldman Sachs estimates growth of gross domestic product of 5.5%. China’s National Health Commission announced the end of the Communist Party’s “dynamic zero-Covid” policy on December 7. It did not take long for Wall Street to crank up the optimism machine. Morgan Stanley, on the following day, issued a research note predicting that Chinese equities would outperform emerging markets and global peers. Since then, financial analysts have been falling over themselves to say how China’s stocks will continue to soar this year. Stocks may soar for a while, but China’s economy is far sicker than analysts assume.

Wehner: Chinese vessels and aircraft appear in Taiwanese waters and airspace

Chinese military vessels and aircraft encroached on Taiwanese waters and airspace again, early Monday morning in what has become a daily flexing of power against the island nation. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense reported in a tweet that six Chinese military aircraft and five Chinese naval vessels were detected around 6 a.m. local time. Taiwan’s armed military forces are monitoring the situation, adding that aircraft, naval vessels and land-based missile systems are responding to the activities.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICAL LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Brown: ‘Aim for the Head’: Air Force General’s Fiery Memo on China Bucks Biden Narrative

In what The Washington Post described as a “bombastic and unusual memo to troops under his command,” top Air Force Gen. Michael A. Minihan “warned personnel to speed their preparations for combat, citing Chinese President Xi Jinping’s aspirations and the possibility that Americans will not be paying attention until it is too late.” Minihan — who leads the Air Mobility Command — wrote in his memo that predicts the Chinese and U.S. military are on an accelerated timeline for conflict that he hopes he is wrong, but that “[my] gut tells me we will fight in 2025.” He noted that China’s genocidal leader Xi Jinping recently “won” a third term in charge of the CCP and previously established his government’s “war council in October 2022.”

(BIDEN’S WAR) Charap & Priebe: Avoiding a Long War

Discussion of the Russia-Ukraine war in Washington is increasingly dominated by the question of how it might end. To inform this discussion, this Perspective identifies ways in which the war could evolve and how alternative trajectories would affect U.S. interests. The authors argue that, in addition to minimizing the risks of major escalation, U.S. interests would be best served by avoiding a protracted conflict. The costs and risks of a long war in Ukraine are significant and outweigh the possible benefits of such a trajectory for the United States. Although Washington cannot by itself determine the war’s duration, it can take steps that make an eventual negotiated end to the conflict more likely. Drawing on the literature on war termination, the authors identify key impediments to Russia-Ukraine talks, such as mutual optimism about the future of the war and mutual pessimism about the implications of peace. The Perspective highlights four policy instruments the United States could use to mitigate these impediments: clarifying plans for future support to Ukraine, making commitments to Ukraine’s security, issuing assurances regarding the country’s neutrality, and setting conditions for sanctions relief for Russia.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICAL LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

VDH: Anarchy, American-Style

The 1960s revolution was both anarchic and nihilist. But it was waged against—not from—the establishment. Hippies and the Left either attacked institutions or, in Timothy Leary fashion, chose to “turn on, tune in, drop out” from them. The current revolution is much different—and far more dangerous—for at least three reasons. The current Left has no intention of “dropping out.” Why would it?  It now controls the very institutions of America that it once mocked and attacked—corporate boardrooms, Wall Street, state and local prosecuting attorneys, most big-city governments, the media, the Pentagon, network and most of cable news, professional sports, Hollywood, music, television, K-12 education, and academia. In other words, the greatest levers of influence and power—money, education, entertainment, government, the news, and popular culture—are in the hands of the Left. They have transformed legitimate debate over gay marriage into a hate crime. Transgenderism went from a modern manifestation of ancient transvestism or gender dysphoria to a veritable litmus test of whether one was good or evil.

(H/T PC) Smith: Joe Biden Is Curiously Serving Two Masters, Which Has Me Wondering

Here is something you won’t hear anywhere else. It is clear that Joe Biden is being ratted out in the classified document scandal, but by whom? Tucker Carlson is convinced it is a cabal of Democratic Party members who want a new presidential nominee for 2024. Tucker, I love ya, but I don’t think so. I believe foreign actors and their interests  may be involved. Joe Biden has been in politics for 50 years. He’s never had a real job. The only core conviction he has is the self-aggrandizement that comes from being able to have people suck up to him due to the power and vast resources at his disposal. He’s dumber than a doorknob. Yet, with 50 years of experience, he is on automatic pilot when it comes to self-preservation. He simply does what he is told and reads his teleprompter without really knowing what he is reading. Thus, I don’t buy Tucker’s analysis because the “powers that be” controlling him already have a pretty good gig. Why would they want to dump him? […]  Why did President Biden withdraw one million barrels of oil out of the Strategic Petroleum  Reserve to “sell” to Sinopec, a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden? More importantly, why are we giving $100 billion dollars to Ukraine?

Brown: Biden’s Border Crisis Comes Into Focus Up North

Between October 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, the U.S. Border Patrol’s Swanton sector along the U.S.-Canada border recorded a 743 percent increase in apprehensions and encounters of illegal border crossings compared to the same timeframe in 2021, another result of President Joe Biden’s open-border policies that have already brought chaos to the U.S.-Mexico border. According to CBP, “[c]ombined apprehensions and encounters in Fiscal Year 2023 have already surpassed that of Fiscal Year 2022 and recent trends represent a sustained increase in illegal border crossings as we head into the harshest winter months.” That is, it’s not just “irregular migration,” as the Biden administration has tried to portray the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border. It’s a “sustained increase” brought about by Biden’s lax border policies. […]  While the U.S.-Canada border is vastly different from the U.S.-Mexico border, CBP warns that attempting to illegally enter the U.S. from Canada is not much safer:

Bartee: ‘Breakfast Club’ Race Hustler: Confiscate 25% of U.S. Economy, Redistribute to Blacks

A racist in a tablecloth suit named Dr. Umar Johnson decreed on The Breakfast Club radio show recently that the American government must carve out a full quarter of all economic activity — in perpetuity. “We get a 25% cut… every time America makes a dollar.” That would amount to approximately six trillion dollars annually. He makes sure to emphasize this is a forever arrangement. Specifically, he wants cash for the “psychological damages” wrought by slavery. Nearly everything, apparently, counts as “psychological damage” to Dr. Johnson. “When you see a black man take the life of another black man, that’s psychological damage [caused by white supremacy],” he explains.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: BLACK LIVES MATTER ARMY

(H/T DG) Reilly: BLM’s Bloody Bill Comes Due

Less than a decade back, Black Lives Matter arrived on the national scene with a two-part message: A near-genocidal campaign is being waged against black Americans, and virtually all contemporary problems in the black community are the fault of white people. This is no exaggeration. BLM spokesman Cherno Biko appeared on prime-time Fox News to argue that a totally innocent, presumably unarmed black person is “murdered” (his words) roughly once per day. Ben Crump, perhaps the nation’s most prominent attorney, published a best-selling 2019 book actually titled Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People. At one point, as I noted in my own book Taboo, the Black Lives Matter website called for “re-payment to Blacks of all wealth ever extracted from a majority-Black community” by means of “racism, slavery, food apartheid, housing discrimination . . . and capitalism.” And so forth. Now, the receipts for the effect of this movement are in. And what they show is the remarkably complete failure of a Narrative. As crime-data resources like Disaster Center and the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program make clear, murders in the United States increased from a low of 14,164 in 2014 — the year Black Lives Matter truly kicked off — to at least 22,900 in 2021, just seven years later. This surge can be directly tied to the BLM-linked “Ferguson Effect” and “Floyd Effect.” In 2021, University of Massachusetts researcher Travis Campbell found that cities that experienced Black Lives Matter protests and riots — and surely often attempted to accommodate the demands of the marchers — did see some decrease in police homicides . . . but also experienced “a huge overall increase in murders.” The resulting murder surge was at least 10 percent overall, “equaling 1,000 to 6,000 additional murders” when expanded to the nationwide level.

BIDEN CRIME FAMILY

Showalter: Biden Family Values: They like to live large

Joe Biden likes to advertise himself as ordinary ‘Scranton Joe’ who’s a family man and “devout” Catholic to the public. A look at news rolling out about Biden’s extended family in the wake of recent scandals suggests a different story. Far from being Lunchbucket Joe, House Biden is more like Venezuela’s Maduro family, or Chavez family, or Cuba’s Castro oligarchs. Cut to the chase and throw in Beijing’s princelings or Russia’s oligarchs, who frequently make cameo appearances. Not surprisingly, most claim to have a soft spot for “the common man.” Some photos of “the life” can be viewed herehereherehere, and here.

Some headlines to give you the flavor: . . . […]  Sound like the Bidens? All we have to do is look at the latest story from the Daily Mail about how Joe used his “pull” to get his ne’er-do-well niece Caroline a fancy new job she’d never have otherwise gotten as a convicted criminal on probation for a $100,000 credit card theft. […]  How the hell she managed to avoid prison for that is as mysterious as how Hunter Biden got into Yale.

MEDICAL CARTEL: HIPPOCRATIC OATH IS A RELIC OF THE PAST

Shaheen: Would YOU accept less anesthetic during surgery to save the planet? Doctors say it could reduce world’s carbon footprint… by up to 0.1%

Researchers are asking doctors to use less anesthesia on their surgery patients in the name of climate change. Doctors from the Henry Ford Health in Detroit, Michigan, said it could significantly reduce the carbon footprint of hospitals in the US. Research suggests that inhaled anesthesia accounts for up to 0.1 percent of the world’s carbon emissions. Dr Mohamed Fayed, a senior anesthetist at the Henry Ford, said: ‘Global warming is affecting our daily life more and more, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has become crucial. ‘No matter how small each effect is, it will add up. […] Use of high levels of anesthesia does come with risks. While it is safe in nearly all cases, too much anesthesia can deprive cells of oxygen and cause stroke, brain injury, coma or even death. There are risks from not receiving enough anesthesia too, though. A person could always wake up during surgery, which can be painful and highly traumatic.

New York parents, it should come as no surprise that legislation is currently before the Assembly and in committee requiring the COVID “vaccine” to be forced onto all children in schools.

Moderator Susan Arbetter said, “Will you follow the CDC’s recommendation to add COVID vaccines to children’s vaccine schedules?”  Hochul was vague. Arbetter pressed: “So would you mandate a COVID vaccine for children, yes or no?” Hochul responded, “It’s something that comes down the legislature anyhow. The legislature makes the determination and consultation with health experts for next year’s school year.” Welcome to 2023 and the legislature. On January 23,  Assembly Bill A2178  was introduced.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = ACCUMULATING POWER & CONTROL

Lehr: Sea Level is Stable Around the World

We have been studying climate change and potentially associated sea level changes resulting from melting ice and warming oceans for a half century. In the 1970s our primary concern was global cooling and an advancing new ice age. Many believe that increasing quantities of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere could result in rising levels of the sea in general. The record does not show this to be true. There is no evidence whatever to support impending sea-level-rise catastrophe or the unnecessary expenditure of state or federal tax monies to solve a problem that does not exist. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has updated its coastal sea level tide gauge data which continue to show no evidence of accelerating sea level rise.

Justice: Records Show Interior Dept. Officials Knew Climate Protesters Might Turn Violent But Didn’t Stop Them

Internal records made public by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show officials at the Department of the Interior downplayed the threat presented by left-wing climate protesters who, in October 2021, launched what could be called an insurrection by Democrats’ standards. On Oct. 14, 2021, a swarm of demonstrators with the group People vs. Fossil Fuels stormed the Department of the Interior’s D.C. headquarters to conclude five days of activism in the nation’s capital. Fifty-five protesters were arrested in the demonstrations that turned violent, and “multiple injuries were sustained by security personnel,” according to the Interior Department. One officer was hospitalized. […]  Despite the dramatic display of performative outrage by lawmakers such as former GOP Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, however, whose tears on television landed him a gig at CNN, Democrats remained silent on the attack at the Interior Department in the fall of 2021, just as they were when the capital city burned under the guise of social justice in 2020.

Lippincott: Steel Yourselves, Conservatives

The Democratic Party’s remarkable midterm election performance—arguably the best for a first-term president since FDR in 1934—despite Joe Biden’s declining popularity, economic headwinds, and growing social and political divisions, portends a dim future for the Republican Party. In the lead up to 2022, Democrats not only refused to moderate their support for unlimited abortion up to the moment of birth, transgender surgery for minors, critical race theory, criminal justice reform, and illegal immigration, they doubled-down. Voters rewarded them with additional governorships, four flipped state legislatures, an increased Senate majority, and minimal losses in the House. The Left has zero reason to take the foot off the gas. Elections, legitimate or not, have consequences. The most likely outcome of the 2024 election is that Democrats retake the House, keep the Senate, and retain the presidency, regardless of who they run or what the economy looks like. As Joe Biden and Jon Fetterman proved in 2020 and 2022, respectively, Democrats don’t need to actually campaign in order to win political office. Nor do they need to be able to string together a coherent sentence. In the wake of the Trump presidency, the Left has reached a new fever pitch of political intensity. The Left’s access to nearly unlimited money, total control over the media narrative, and an unparalleled national vote-harvesting operation make campaigning and candidate quality of only tertiary importance. A recession likely won’t change these dynamics either. The economy boomed under Trump and experienced severe dislocations and inflation under Biden. But Democrats won big in both 2020 and 2022. Taking the state of the economy as a useful metric for political prognostication is largely a thing of the past. Liberal voters’ religious commitment to abortion and anti-racism is infinitely more important to understanding their political habits than measuring their material self-interest. So, is it simply over? Should conservatives pack it in and go home? Jump off the nearest bridge? No to all three.  […]  The Right can prepare for this eventuality by laying the groundwork for a counterrevolutionary political movement now. Spiritual warfare against America’s leftist ruling class is a must. Communism is a Christian heresy. Atheistic liberalism is an offense against God. Christians should resist it on those grounds alone. Believers and their allies should take every opportunity to disobey, reject, and delegitimize the ruling class whenever and wherever they can.

Taer: Assistant Principal Asked School Staff To Help Pay Immigrant Student’s ‘Coyote’ Fees, Email Shows

We are trying to figure out who generated that and why. We do not have a student that is being human trafficked,” the school official, who did not identify themselves, told the DCNF.

Jewell: FDA To Remove Restriction On Blood Donations From Gay, Bisexual Men

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Friday that it will remove a restriction on gay and bisexual men donating blood, a segment of the population that faces a higher risk of HIV. According to draft guidelines announced by the FDA, the new policy would eliminate a requirement that gay and bisexual men abstain from sexual activity for three months before donating blood, the Associated Press reported. The proposed rule change would be a major shift in a decades-old policy set during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. Instead of requiring three months of abstinence for men who have sex with men, the FDA will make all potential donors fill out a personalized questionnaire that evaluates each person’s risks for HIV before they can donate blood.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Mark Tapson contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Gender ideology is the tip of the spear today of cultural Marxism, which posits that children belong to “the collective” and that the nuclear family must be “abolished” in order to free women and children from its slavery. Donohue shoots this down in the film with his once-commonsense assertion that “the state does not own the children. The children belong to the parents.” David Horowitz rightly adds that such indoctrination is “an atrocity against children, and Disney has allowed itself to become part of it.”

Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage Magazine: America’s institutions are being captured from the top down. And equity, like environmentalism, is one of the key forces responsible for politicizing what was once apolitical. Equity, as many have observed, is not equality, but equity, more importantly, is tyranny.

Tracy Beanz & Michelle Edwards investigative journalist for The Highwire: In a recent appearance on The Highwire, Dr. Ryan Cole explained why mRNA injections can be so dangerous. Simply put, human cells are meant to make human proteins, not the foreign spike protein mRNA jabs program our cells to make. According to Dr. Cole, the mRNA platform has proven to be so dangerous that not only do COVID vaccines need to be halted immediately, but the entire experimental platform—and the agencies that have taken it upon themselves carte blanche to keep pushing it forward (like Moderna and DARPA)—need to be stopped.

David Lewis Schaefer contributor to The American Mind: This politicization of science encourages an unjustified suspicion or rejection of real science. Look no further than Anthony Fauci’s sometimes contradictory, and admittedly sometimes purposely misleading, pronouncements regarding the causes of and appropriate responses to COVID, which have eroded public trust in the institution of public health.

Continetti: How Donald Trump’s 2024 Campaign Bounced Back

Donald Trump spent the final months of 2022 reeling from electoral setbacks and media disasters. Many of his high-profile endorsements in the midterm elections flopped. His attacks on popular GOP governors in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Georgia did little damage to their reputations. His 2024 campaign launch was a snooze. His infamous and inexcusable dinner at Mar-a-Lago with high-profile anti-Semites put him on the political fringe. By the end of last year, Trump appeared to be fading from the national conversation. His chances of winning the Republican nomination seemed to dim. Now those chances are brightening. Trump continues to dominate in polls of Republicans.

Sundance: Here’s Why the Big Club and People Managing Ron DeSantis Hate Donald Trump

President Trump transmitted a message to congress, warning them not to cut Social Security and Medicare {Direct Rumble Link}.  Many politicians and pundits will look at Trump’s position from the perspective of it being good to campaign for older voters, but that’s not the core of his reasoning.

In 2016 CTH was the first place to evaluate the totality of President Trump’s economic policies; specifically, as those policies related to the entitlement programs around Social Security and Medicare.  We outlined the approach Trump was putting forth and the way he was approaching the issue.   In the years that followed, he was right.  He was creating a U.S. economy that could sustain all of the elements the traditional political class were calling “unsustainable.” Before getting to the details, here’s his video message and policy as delivered yesterday.

Zeisloft: Madison Square Garden Uses Facial Recognition Technology To Stop Certain People From Entering

Madison Square Garden Entertainment is using facial recognition technology to prevent attorneys from law firms representing clients suing the company from entering iconic venues in New York City. The policy may violate state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination and retaliation toward individuals engaged in protected activities, such as “taking on legitimate cases, including sexual harassment or employment discrimination claims,” according to a letter from Kyle Rapiñan, an official with the New York State Office of the Attorney General. An investigation from the New York Times found that the company is stopping lawyers from entering the facility with the help of software that can identify their faces using profile photos on their companies’ websites. Thousands of lawyers across several dozen firms may have been affected by the company’s move, according to the letter, which indicated that season ticket holders could be barred from attending events. Sports teams such as the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers play at Madison Square Garden, which is also a coveted concert venue.

JANUARY 6

Castronuova: UNBELIEVABLY HEARTBREAKING J6 VIDEO! Exclusive CRYSTAL CLEAR Video of Rosanne Boyland as She DIED on Steps of US Capitol on January 6 – WHY WON’T THE POLITICIANS & MEDIA SAY HER NAME?

In this poignant video that plays like a scene in a feature film, the unconscious body of Rosanne Boyland lay on the steps of the US Capitol as distraught Trump Supporters try in vain to save her, before finally carrying her lifeless body up to the mouth of the West Capitol Entrance and turning her over to the Metro Police Line- begging them for help after a police officer had just been seen beating Rosanne to a pulp with a stick. From there, the police dragged Rosanne down the tunnel by her feet like a sack of potatoes and she was never seen again. […] “All the cell phone and body-cam video we have seen comes across as somewhat de-humanizing,” said Tina Ryan of Citizens Against Political Persecution. “You can’t really see the details of people’s faces- the range of emotions and pure reactions. That’s why this new video is a game-changer. Watch it in slow motion. Watch the despair, the fear, the indignation…these are the people the Government has tried to paint as the worst terrorists in America. But you can see here that they are regular people- caught up in an extraordinary situation- and were reacting in real time as human beings to police attacks on themselves and on their peers.” […]  In this video, men are seen desperately trying to save the life of Rosanne as they attempt to perform CPR. They use tools from a CPR kit in someone’s backpack on the ground. A man in an aviator hat pumps on her chest. A protester in a tan jacket cuts Rosanne’s shirt off to perform CRP. Ronald McAbee, a Sheriff from Tennessee, unbuttons Boyland’s pants and removes her belt to access the femoral artery in her leg to take a pulse. (McAbee still sits in pre-trial detention for the January 6th crime of trying to save Rosanne and help police). The irony of the situation is that over a dozen men sit in pre-trial detention who were helping Rosanne or reacting to her death.

(Biden’s War) Locklhart: Zelensky rules out peace talks with Putin… but Britain admits its tanks won’t arrive in Ukraine until the end of March and Macron ally insists France MAY send jets after Paris tried to wriggle out of sending heavy weaponry

Volodymyr Zelensky last night dramatically ruled out peace talks with Putin’s Russia, even as British ministers revealed that tanks pledged to Ukraine will not arrive in the war-torn country until the end of March. Speaking to Sky News, the Ukrainian President declared: ‘They don’t want any talks, and this was the case before the invasion. President Putin decided so. He doesn’t want negotiations because he doesn’t want peace. ‘I am convinced that Ukraine is just the first step for him. I am convinced that he is waging a big war. But after Ukraine there will be further steps, there will be other countries, if we fail to withstand. I think we will manage, we will get support and we will win.’ Britain, the US and Germany have pledged tanks to Ukraine, but their arrival will be delayed, while NATO ally France suggested it might send fighter jets to Kyiv after it tried to wriggle out of sending other heavy weaponry to help the country fend off Russian forces. [Note: Force  Zelensky to engage in peace talks or “allies” walk away avoiding WWIII? ]

Pollak: Blue State Blues: The War in Ukraine Nears a Point of No Return

White House communications chief John Kirby later tried to assure reporters (and Russia) that the tanks would not be used for an “offensive” purpose, but clearly the hope is to retake territory by attacking Russian forces. The increasing involvement of the U.S. and other NATO allies in supplying — and advising — Ukrainian forces is an escalation that brings the West closer to outright conflict with Russia. And while the weakened Russian army would be no match for U.S. forces, the Russians still have the world’s largest nuclear arsenal — a fact that seems to have been forgotten amid the fashionable exuberance with which both parties have embraced the war effort. I write — it is necessary to say this — as someone who has been a Russia hawk for many years, long before Putin rolled his tanks into Georgia during the 2008 Olympics.

Schoffstall: Top George Soros director has frequent Biden White House access, records show

A high-level director at George Soros‘ Open Society Foundations (OSF) who is tied to a group bankrolled by the billionaire and quietly working with President Biden’s administration on policy has close access to the White House, records show. Tom Perriello, Open Society-U.S.’s executive director and part of Soros’ leadership team, and who sits on the board of Governing for Impact, an outside Soros-funded group maneuvering behind the scenes to shape and implement policy, has frequently visited the White House for meetings and events. Perriello’s name appears in White House visitor logs 13 times on eight different days between May 2021 and September 2022, the last publicly available month for the records, a Fox News Digital review has found.

Justice: Interior Department Blocks Minnesota Twin Metals Mining Project In Big Win For Beijing

The Biden administration blocked plans for a major nickel and cobalt mine in northern Minnesota Thursday while the U.S. remains reliant on overseas supply chains for its critical minerals. The “Twin Metals Project” would have tapped the Duluth Complex within the Superior National Forest, where 95 percent of the nation’s nickel reserves and 88 percent of American cobalt reserves remain underground. Now, pending litigation over leases, the Department of the Interior has blocked the nearly $3 billion mine over concerns about the safety of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness inside the national forest.

[…] The department withdrew more than 225,000 acres of the Superior National Forest from consideration for mining operations, ensuring the Twin Metals project’s demise for the foreseeable future. […]  Meanwhile, a report from the left-leaning Brookings Institute published last fall warned about the severe vulnerability presented in mineral supply chains by an overreliance on overseas adversaries. Even as leftist lawmakers want to ramp up the use of emissions-free energy technologies that require critical minerals, the Biden administration has slow-walked efforts to reform the U.S. regulatory regime over mining.

Beijing stands to benefit the most from Washington’s neglect.

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

Piper: Brits yank back COVID vaccination program as US plunges forward with one-size-fits-all strategy

The U.S. one-size-fits-all COVID-19 vaccination strategy is becoming even more of an international outlier with the U.K.’s decision to stop giving boosters to people under 50 “who are not in a clinical risk group” — and ratchet back primary-series vaccination as well. The Brits’ same-day acceptance of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s recommendations Wednesday also stands in stark contrast to the FDA’s oft-adversarial relationship with its Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), which has been given limited information before votes on COVID vaccine authorizations, overruled or simply excluded from any role in key FDA decisions.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = POWER AND CONTROL

Hinderaker: WHERE YOU GONNA PUT THOSE WIND TURBINES?

There are several reasons why wind and solar energy are doomed to fail, but the most basic is that they are low-intensity energy sources. They produce ridiculously little electricity per acre. Thus, Robert Bryce, one of our top energy experts, calculated in a paper he wrote for American Experiment that if we wanted to get all of our electricity needs from wind turbines, we would have to dedicate an area twice the size of the State of California. I will hazard a guess that, no matter how much money liberals waste, this isn’t going to happen. Bryce has also documented one of the fundamental obstacles to vastly increased wind and solar installations: local opposition. Bryce has recorded hundreds of instances where wind and solar projects have been blocked by local governments on account of citizen opposition, and at the link, he explains why that opposition is justified.

Hoffman: An Inconvenient Truth for Environmentalists: Offshore Wind Endangers Whales

Democracy, for once, isn’t dying in darkness.  The Washington Post, an outlet all-in for net-zero energy, conceded recent whale deaths off the Atlantic Coast spell doom for the Biden administration’s offshore wind prospects. “The humpback was one of nine large whales to get stranded over six weeks on or near beaches in the Northeast, not far from where developers of hundreds of offshore wind turbines are engaged in a flurry of preconstruction activity,” the publication noted.  The article added, “It’s the latest in a string of threats to a fledgling offshore wind industry that climate advocates say is central to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Surging costs from inflation and labor shortages have developers saying their projects may not be profitable. A raft of lawsuits and pending federal restrictions to protect sensitive wildlife could further add to costs.”

GEORGE SOROS: THE FACE OF EVIL 

Palumbo: How George Soros indoctrinates the next generation

Only George Soros could look at the state of American higher education and conclude that it’s not liberal enough. In 2020 alone, Soros’ Open Society Foundations budgeted more than $63 million, or just over 5% of its budget, toward influencing higher education here and abroad. Over the years Soros has funded more than 20,000 scholarships, invested hundreds of millions into liberal American colleges, and created a University of his own. […]  The CEU’s connection to American schools can be seen on it’s board, which includes, or has included, the President of Bard College Leon Botstein (who was formally chairman of the board), Johns Hopkins President Ronald Daniels, UC Berkeley Chancellor Carol Christ, and Benjamin Heineman, a senior fellow at a Harvard Law School program. CEU has allowed Soros to both educate leftists and given him influence over them throughout their careers.

Palumbo: George Soros’ ideological empire will outlive him

George Soros is 92 years old, and time itself is set to end his reign as the world’s biggest living influencer of politics. But his agenda and its backing will survive him. Soros explained in an essay titled “My Philanthropy” published in the New York Review of Books in 2011, that “Having decided that the Open Society Foundations should survive me, I have done my best to prepare them for my absence. But it would contradict my belief that all human constructs are flawed if I had fully succeeded. Therefore, I bequeath my successors the task of revising any of the arrangements I shall have left behind in the same spirit in which I have made them.” Soros has since done some estate planning to further that goal.

Tapson: Disney’s Disenchanted Kingdom

“You know, when I was a kid, everybody looked forward to Sunday evenings and Disney,” reminisces Dr. Ben Carson, former Trump administration Secretary of HUD, in a new documentary just released by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights. Carson was referring, of course, to the long-running, family entertainment TV program created by that beloved American original, Walt Disney. It was a show and a brand that parents trusted, without reservation, to delight their children and leave their innocence untouched. Visits to Disneyland itself were a magical experience for all. That was once upon a time. Today, Disney movies, shows, and parks are minefields of wokeness, which concerned parents navigate with trepidation to protect their kids from radical messaging and sexual grooming. “Walt Disney must be turning over in his grave,” Catholic League president and CEO Bill Donohue says in Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom, a 50-minute film which explores the Disney Company’s recent, rapid descent into gender madness. “Have we all lost our mind?” Walt’s Disenchanted Kingdom can be viewed for free at the Catholic League’s website, on YouTube, and at SalemNOW.

Dixon: DeSantis rolls out sweeping criminal justice package

At both events, DeSantis stressed he wanted the GOP-led Legislature to change Florida law to allow juries to administer the death penalty by a supermajority rather than requiring unanimity, which has been state law since 2017. DeSantis has tied this proposal to the case of the Parkland school shooter, who shot and killed 17 people but was spared the death penalty because one of the jurors was against the death penalty. “One juror should not be able to veto that,” DeSantis said Thursday. “I don’t think justice was served.” DeSantis also wants lawmakers to crack down on colorful fentanyl pills that look like candy and are commonly referred to as “rainbow fentanyl.” His proposal would make it a first degree felony to possess, sell, or manufacture fentanyl that resembles candy.

Martin: No Democratic Bench? Josh Shapiro and Wes Moore Are Ready To Step Up

Gov. Josh Shapiro made headlines for taking the oath of office last week on a stack of scripture that included a Hebrew bible from Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, site of the deadliest antisemitic attack in American history. Yet while Shapiro invoked his Jewish faith in his inaugural address, more memorable on a brisk-but-not-bitter day outside Pennsylvania’s grand capitol was what happened when the St. Thomas Gospel Choir from Philadelphia performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing”: Shapiro sang along with them, mouthing the lyrics to the Black National Anthem from heart while unabashedly rocking back and forth on both legs. The next day, outside Maryland’s history-drenched State House in Annapolis, it was Oprah Winfrey who left many attendees (and perhaps even a few local pols) starstruck. Winfrey introduced Gov. Wes Moore, the state’s first Black governor and only the third-ever elected African-American governor.

However, the more revealing presence on stage may have been that of somebody few recognized, Lt. Col. Jamie Martinez (Ret.). Martinez took the microphone to remind an audience that included Eric Holder, Chris Tucker and Cal Ripken that the 44-year-old Moore isn’t just a political phenom: he was also a fellow soldier from the 82nd Airborne who led troops in Afghanistan.

A transgender woman in the United Kingdom who was convicted of raping two women when she was a man is being sent to a female prison to await sentencing, prompting outcry from activists, politicians and even United Nations officials. Isla Bryson of Scotland was found guilty this week of committing the rapes when she was previously named Adam Graham, a “muscular” man with a shaved head and a face tattoo, according to a report in the Daily Mail. Bryson denied the charges, telling the high court of Glasgow that any sex was consensual and she “would never hurt another human being.”

Donald Trump will seek to kick his campaign for the 2024 Republican nomination into gear this weekend, with a pair of campaign stops in key early-voting states more than two months after he announced his intention to run. The appearances in New Hampshire and South Carolina are an opportunity to address complaints from some fellow Republicans that his intended rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden has gotten off to a slow start, but they may also illustrate a weakening grip on the party.

GLOBALISM (GREAT RESET) & TRANSHUMANISM (HUMANS 2.0) ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED

Beanz & Edwards: MRNA IS NOT GOING AWAY: MODERNA CEO HAS PERMANENT GLOBAL PLANS

At last week’s World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel declared he would “like to have mRNA capacity on every continent.” His remark at the annual gathering of global elites should come as no surprise. After all, the pharmaceutical giant has been developing mRNA gene-editing technology for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for over a decade. Still, to test things out on a large scale, the duo lacked “the need and the opportunity.” Two years ago, in an extraordinary windfall for Moderna (and Pfizer), the COVID-19 pandemic provided the perfect fast-tracked opportunity to introduce novel mRNA technology to the masses. Without question, introducing mRNA protein encoding around the planet has driven the strategic plans of both DARPA—a covert agency of the U.S. Department of Defense—and Moderna for over twelve years. Still, for those not familiar with or currently regulated by the Pfizer-controlled mainstream news, awareness of the backstory is essential to ensure the planet’s future. Reminders of the narrative at play are necessary; thus, a brief rundown of how we got here seems in order.

Christianson: Ivy League Lawyer Who Firebombed Cop Car Will Spend a Year and a Day in Prison

An Ivy League-educated lawyer who firebombed a cop car during the 2020 George Floyd riots was sentenced on Thursday to just a year and a day in prison, concluding a pair of cases marked by surprising leniency from the Biden Justice Department.

Colinford Mattis’s sentence was the second of its kind delivered by U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan of the Eastern District of New York after Urooj Rahman, a public interest lawyer who joined Mattis in the firebombing, was sentenced in November to 15 months. In a pre-sentencing memo, prosecutors said they viewed “Mattis’s conduct here as equally culpable to Rahman’s conduct” and recommended a sentence of 18 to 24 months—well beneath the initial guideline of 10 years. Mattis and Rahman leveraged their prestigious degrees, left-wing legal advocacy, and personal connections—including with one former Obama administration official who posted Rahman’s $250,000 bail—to curry favor with the Justice Department. Liberal media outlets like NPR and New York magazine produced fawning coverage of the two after their arrest. […]  Trump administration prosecutors had sought a 10-year sentence with a domestic terrorism enhancement for the pair, which was dropped after President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland took office.

The Colorado baker who won a partial U.S. Supreme Court victory after refusing to make a gay couple’s wedding cake because of his Christian faith lost an appeal Thursday in his latest legal fight, involving his rejection of a request for a birthday cake celebrating a gender transition. The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that that the cake Autumn Scardina requested from Jack Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop, which was to be pink with blue frosting, is not a form of speech.It also found that the state law that makes it illegal to refuse to provide services to people based on protected characteristics like race, religion or sexual orientation does not violate business owners’ right to practice or express their religion. […]  “They just object to the idea of Ms. Scardina wanting a birthday cake that reflects her status as a transgender woman because they object to the existence of transgender people,” he said of Phillips and his shop.

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY

Vought: In Debt Limit Fight, Republicans Shouldn’t Rerun Same Spending Playbook | Opinion

With the United States once again breaching its debt limit, congressional Republicans have three choices in how to respond. First, they can cave to demands from President Joe Biden by passing a “clean” debt limit increase, which would continue America’s steady march toward insolvency. Second, they could devote most of their energy and political capital toward pushing for reforms to Social Security and Medicare, thus ceding the political high ground to the Democrats. Or Republicans could choose a third option: . . .

REPUBLICAN U.S. SENATE MINORITY

The Center Square Staff: Senate bill would repeal $600 IRS reporting threshold from ‘American Rescue Plan Act’

Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., and seven other senators have signed onto a bill that would repeal the tax threshold for reporting third-party payments. Under a provision in the American Rescue Plan Act, business transactions over $600 annually would be reported to the IRS by the payment platforms.

The Stop the Nosy Obsession with Online Payments Act, known as the SNOOP Act, would keep the threshold at $20,000 a year for at least 200 transactions. “Small business owners and independent contractors need rescuing from this American Rescue Plan Act provision, which, fortunately, has yet to be implemented by the IRS,” Cramer said in a news release. “Our bill would prevent enforcement of the onerous regulation and institute a more reasonable reporting threshold.”

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Shurk: Why Preserve a ‘World Order’ without Freedom?

Senator Lindsey Graham desperately wants more money and weapons for Ukraine. Recently standing in Kyiv alongside two (other?) Democrat senators — one who repeatedly lied about his service in Vietnam and another who repeatedly lied about President Trump being a Russian spy — Graham demanded American tanks on the ground immediately.  “World order is at stake!” he declared.  Something serious must be at stake over there; having thrown over a hundred billion dollars to a nation that was known universally as one of the most corrupt in the world before Russia crossed its borders last year, the U.S. government has become “pot committed” to a European war, whether financially struggling Americans care or not. Just what is this “world order” that keeps Ol’ Lindsey up at night?  Surely he means some combination of American hegemony, military dominance, dollar-denominated financial supremacy, and command over the vaunted “rules-based international system” so-called Western leaders love to defend.  You never hear anything about the importance of defending Western rights and liberties, though, do you?  Senator Graham-nesty isn’t worried about protecting America’s borders.  He says absolutely nothing about securing Westerners’ freedoms from threats of tyranny.  Why?

Greenfield: Equity is the New Communism

The Biden administration is ordering state and local governments to submit ‘equity plans’ or lose federal funding. This latest shot in the long “war against the suburbs” is part of former Rep. Marcia L. Fudge’s plan, as the boss of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, to “weave equity throughout HUD’s work”. Weaving equity into all of government has been the biggest agenda of the Biden administration. After taking office, it ordered every single agency to come up with an equity plan. State and city governments often already demand equity plans for nearly everything. Those who don’t, are quickly learning the Marxist jargon, the bureaucratic systems and the paperwork of ‘equity’. In under a decade, equity plans have become widely embedded in American life. And they serve the same function that Communist Party dogma did in the USSR or Communist China.

Hensley: An FDA committee votes to roll out a new COVID vaccination strategy

A committee of advisers to the Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously on a proposal to simplify the nation’s strategy for vaccinating people against COVID-19. The recommendation is that future COVID-19 vaccines should be interchangeable: no matter whether you’re getting your first dose or a booster, the vaccines would all have the same formulation targeting the same viral strain or strains, regardless of the manufacturer. The vote was unanimous: 21-0.In addition, the committee considered (but didn’t vote on) proposals to have an annual COVID vaccination schedule, much like the U.S. has for the flu.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = POWER AND CONTROL

Corsi: Electric Vehicles Are an Ideologically Driven Economic Misadventure

As more motorists own electric vehicles (EVs) and experience problems operating them, evidence shows that the movement to abandon gas-powered vehicles is ideologically motivated and unsupported by rational economic calculation. In January 2023, four Wyoming state senators and two representatives introduced Senate Joint Resolution No. SJ004 to ban the sale of EVs in Wyoming by 2035. The proposed legislation stressed that “Wyoming’s vast stretches of highway, coupled with a lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, make the widespread use of electric vehicles impracticable for the state.” The proposed legislation also noted that “the batteries used in electric vehicles contain critical minerals whose domestic supply is limited and at risk of disruption.” Moreover, the Senate Joint Resolution explained that “the critical minerals used in electric batteries are not easily recyclable or disposable, meaning that landfills in Wyoming and elsewhere will be required to develop practices to dispose of these minerals in a safe and responsible manner.” Finally, the legislation was premised on the reality that “the expansion of electric vehicle charging stations in Wyoming and throughout the country necessary to support more electric vehicles will require massive amounts of new power generation to sustain the misadventure of electric vehicles.”

Griffith: Republican AGs from 25 states SUE Biden administration over new ‘socially conscious’ investing rule saying it ‘undermines key protections’ for the retirement savings of 152M workers totaling $12T in assets

The federal suit filed on Thursday in US District Court for Northern Texas seeks to halt the implementation of the Department of Labor rule, which allows private benefit plans to invest in funds focused on environmental, social, or governance (ESG) issues. The suit alleges the new rule ‘undermines key protections for retirement savings of 152 million workers… totaling $12 trillion in assets’ in the name of social policies, including addressing climate change. The rule, set to take effect on January 30, reverses a restriction imposed during the Trump administration that requires retirement plans to consider only financial factors in making investment decisions and exercising shareholder rights.  ‘The Biden Administration is promoting its climate change agenda by putting everyday people’s retirement money at risk,’ said Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, who is leading the suit, in a statement to DailyMail.com.

POLITICS: SCIENCE IN THE CROSSHAIRS

Schaefer: A Sad New Epoch

The Anthropocene Working Group of geologists, featured on the front page of the New York Times, is poised to announce the discovery/invention of a new epoch in the Earth’s history, beginning in the middle of the 20th century. Whereas seven previous epochs ranged from 4.6 billion to the most recent one, the “Holocene” (11,700 years since the end of the last ice age), during which homo sapiens evolved, scientists in the working group claim that no broad numbers are needed to date the Anthropocene since developments caused by humans, such as the increased use of nitrogen fertilizers, global warming, “the proliferation of plastics, garbage, and concrete across the planet,” and potential nuclear war, are directly visible to us. The group claims that the effects of the new age “will be discernible in the rocks for millenniums.” Certification of the new epoch will require a 60% vote by four committees. If it fails to receive such a vote from any of the committees, the Times warns it “might not have another chance to be ratified for years.” But of course this isn’t how science develops, properly understood. As Stanley C. Finney, the secretary-general of the International Union of Geological Sciences, has observed, the notion of the Anthropocene has become a way for geologists to make a “political statement.”

GEORGE SOROS: THE FACE OF EVIL

Palumbo: How George Soros funds ‘fact checkers’ to silence dissent

George Soros is the most dangerous man in America. The investor is intent on remaking the country to his liberal image, from our foreign-policy priorities to undermining our criminal-justice system. This week, The Post takes a look at the reach of Soros’ billions. In this fourth essay, Matt Palumbo, author of “The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros,” talks about how “fact checking” can shape the narrative.

It’s not enough for George Soros to fund the media and encourage stories that back up his point of view — he has to make sure no one disagrees with it. Last year, Soros partnered with fellow leftist billionaire Reid Hoffman (the co-founder of LinkedIn) to financially back a project to fight so-called disinformation. The name they chose might have come from George Orwell himself: Good Information Inc. Branding anything that goes counter-narrative as “disinformation” has become the left’s latest strategy to fight anything that threatens their spin, and Soros has taken note.

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON WOMEN

Buttons: Proposed New York Law Could Put Criminally Insane Male Inmates In Women’s Prisons, Advocates Fear

Yesterday, the New York Senate added an amendment to Senate Bill 2860, euphemistically called the “gender identity respect, dignity and safety act,” that would allow male prisoners to be placed in a correctional facility or other institution that matches their self-determined “gender identity.” According to the women’s advocacy group, these “other institutions” added to the bill likely include psychiatric facilities for the criminally insane and possibly high-risk sex offenders. “The Bill expands beyond correctional facilities to extend to ‘other institutions’ housing incarcerated individuals,” said Amanda Stulman, the USA director for Keep Prisons Single Sex (KPSS). “Presumably, this would include forensic mental health facilities. So, this New York Senate Bill would presumptively house mentally ill incarcerated men with mentally ill women.“

NOTABLE QUOTES

Thorsteinn Siglaugsson contributor to Brownstone Institute: Freedom of expression is the ultimate test of totalitarianism. Totalitarianism begins in the psyche of the extremists. Then it appears in the willingness to take away people’s freedoms. It appears in contradictions and untruths. But the opposition to free speech is what ultimately exposes totalitarianism beyond any doubt.

Steve McCann contributor to American Thinker: The Founders of America were extraordinarily aware of this cavernous flaw within the human race.  The Constitution’s primary purpose is to make it extremely difficult for despotism to take root without the consent of what the Founders hoped would be an educated, principled and patriotic populace.  However, based on the polling, unfathomable ignorance of America’s founding and history, and increasing belief in moral relativism by the Millennials and Gen Z, that consent apparently is in the offing.

Mark Wauck Substack: In his landmark 1966 book, The Triumph of the Therapeutic, Rieff said the death of God in the West had given birth to a new civilization devoted to liberating the individual to seek his own pleasures and to managing emergent anxieties. Religious Man, who lived according to belief in transcendent principles that ordered human life around communal purposes, had given way to Psychological Man, who believed that there was no transcendent order and that life’s purpose was to find one’s own way experimentally. Man no longer understood himself to be a pilgrim on a meaningful journey with others, but as a tourist who traveled through life according to his own self-designed itinerary, with personal happiness his ultimate goal.

Kevin Downey Jr. contributor to PJMedia: [President] Eisenhower knew what he was talking about. Every president who opposed the CIA, ended a war (even the Cold War), and/or didn’t start a war has either gotten shot or lost reelection. Those who have played nice with them kept their jobs and heads.

Revolver.news: Paul Ryan is the avatar of a failed era of the GOP. The 2009-2015 GOP was a party with a losing presidential coalition, unpopular signature issues, and a crippling lack of coolness, sure. But most of all, the Ryan-era GOP was failing because it was psychologically defeated. It was a party beholden to moral imperialism of the left, incapable of articulating or pursuing its own values. As such, it was conquered before any election was even held.

Mary Holland, Children’s Health Defense (CHD) president: COVID-19 is a means to an end; to suspend and strip us of Constitutional rights and civil liberties, and to further social, political and financial restructuring objectives outside democratic processes. COVID is a propaganda masterpiece.

J.B Shuerk contributor to Gatestone Institute: None of the WEF’s expansive programs for remaking the world according to its members’ interests sounds like anything free Westerners could ever voluntarily embrace. Surely that is why so many of the WEF’s speakers urge the forceful adoption of these policies regardless of public support. Perhaps that is also why the Chinese Communist Party recently applauded this year’s “Davos spirit.” Communists know communism when they see it, and in Klaus Schwab’s globalist oligarchy of “elites,” China likes what it sees.

John Hinderaker contributor to Powerline Blog: This is no secret if you follow leftist writing, but many people find it hard to believe. To be fair, there is a great deal about modern liberalism that I find hard to believe. But the plan to convert us all to insect-eaters is real.

Joe Allen’s Singularity Weekly: By the way, viruses don’t exist. No one has ever seen a virus. The electron microscope images are being misinterpreted. The many thousands of virologists around the world are just studying, well, nothing. The entire field is a fraud.

Carla Peters contributor to Brownstone Institute: The health system is turned into a money driven Public Private Partnership, selling sickness, with limited interest in promoting health and well-being, let alone considering the advice of Hippocrates ‘First do not harm.’

Michael Kane & Meryl Nass, M.D. contributors to Children’s Health Defense: An attack on the free speech of doctors and medical scientists is being waged across America today. While controversy is inherent in scientific advancement, and scientific knowledge continuously evolves, disagreement with the federal public health recommendations has led to draconian censorship and suppression. Doctors have been investigated, lost their specialty board certifications, and even lost their medical licenses for speaking out publicly against federal guidelines.

Fremantle: Commonsense Advice for Trump 2.0

The unadulterated havoc created, and almost blissfully sustained, by the Biden administration has put a spotlight on attributes of this president that many Americans find reprehensible. […]  A simpleton may lay blame at the feet of Trump’s insatiable social media bombast for his failure to secure victory in the 2020 election.  Rather, one could argue that his first term in office was undone by the company he kept. Trump’s inner circle was no reboot of Lincoln’s Team of Rivals; rather, it was a conglomeration of subversive Obama holdovers, ruling-class politicians owed electoral favors, and glad-handing lackeys doing the bidding of the ever-watchful GOP.  Plain and simple, the disparate efforts of this group, whether by nefarious design or through sheer bureaucratic ineptitude, crippled Trump from the onset. […]  For Trump to succeed in any campaign for his return to the presidency, he must immediately consider a shift in his public stance on the jabs and Operation Warp Speed.  A change of this magnitude would be a difficult one for Trump to accept, as a leader who has doggedly boasted of his administration’s life-saving prowess through the advent of the vaccine rollout in 2021.  This stance is quickly becoming unsustainable, as seemingly every news cycle is littered with unexplained deaths of young adults, celebrities, and athletes in peak physical condition. […]  It goes without saying that American foreign policy under Joe Biden is an abject failure, replete with human loss of life and tragedy, displaced millions, and a significantly diminished stature on the world stage. […]  Trump turned to his Art of the Deal tactics in his first term, and if he isn’t already holding back-channel discussions with world leaders, much like what John Kerry did in an unofficial capacity to broker then–former president Obama’s Green New Deal, he should strongly consider it.

Revolver.news: Revenge of the Nerd: Drab Paul Ryan Tries to Defeat Trump, But Gets Stuffed in a Locker… Again

Paul Ryan has slithered back onto the American political stage. Does he come bearing bold new ideas for the GOP of the future? Does he come bearing sick workout tips? Oh come on. Of course not. Ryan is back to trash Donald Trump. Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday that former President Trump is a “proven loser” after a string of Republican election losses in recent years. “He’s fading fast,” Ryan told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Thursday. “He is a proven loser. He cost us the House in ’18, he cost us the White House in ’20, he cost us the Senate again and again.” Ryan said he does not believe Trump will get the party nomination as Republicans begin to focus more on issues like fiscal responsibility and less on personalities. “I think we are moving past Trump,” he added. “I really think that’s the case. I can’t imagine him getting the nomination, frankly.” […]  One can understand Ryan’s enthusiasm to see the Donald gone. He’s wanted him gone from the very beginning. All the way back in 2015, shortly after Trump had praised his selection as Speaker of the House, . . . […] When Ryan prematurely quit Congress at just 48 years old, he was almost certainly driven by loathing of Trump. And so Ryan has been fuming more or less ever since, begging the country in 2021, and 2022, and now 2023 to please, please ditch Trump for good and return to Real Conservatism ™. But is Ryan right? LOL, no.

GLOBALISM (GREAT RESET) & TRANSHUMANISM (HUMANS 2.0) ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED

Burdick, PhD.: The ‘Great Food Reset’: Who’s Behind Plan to Reengineer the Global Food Supply?

The world’s food supply is being reengineered under the guise of a fake food crisis, according to journalist James Corbett. “From cricket powder dumplings and bug burgers to GMOs and glyphosate to bioreactors and designer microbes to nutrigenomics and 3D printed material, the future of ‘food’ is shaping up to be radically different from anything you’ve eaten before,” the author of the “The Corbett Report” said. Food, Corbett noted a week earlier on his Substack, has been leveraged throughout human history as a “powerful tool of control.” But it’s not too late to “start formulating our own plans for counteracting this agenda” of control, Corbett said. What’s the first step? Look closely at who’s behind the agenda. According to Corbett:  “In order to truly do something to derail the runaway train that is the Great Food Reset, we must first understand it. And in order to understand it, we have to know something about the people behind this agenda.”  Corbett provided an information-packed rundown of the groups and individuals he believes are the drivers — historically and today — of the Great Food Reset.

Shurk: Censorship, Mass Surveillance and Bugs: World Economic Forum vs. The Free World

The World Economic Forum’s nation-crushing empire looks like a chop shop that has stolen parts from the world’s worst dictatorships in order to create Frankenstein’s “woke” monster. It has swiped the Aztecs’ penchant for human sacrifice to ward off bad weather, the Chinese communists’ love of total control and the eradication of traditional culture, the Italian fascists’ society-squeezing partnership with corporate monopolists, and the German Nazis’ belief in a “master race” — chiefly the celebrities, bankers, crony capitalists, and potentates who assemble in Davos and elsewhere to applaud their own achievements and further implement their “master plan,” which the WEF affectionately calls “The Great Reset.” As Klaus Schwab, himself, recently declared to his potpourri of princely guests, the WEF intends to “master the future,” and who better to “master” what has not yet been written than those who view the rest of the planet’s inhabitants as little more than servants and serfs?

Caddle: Great Reset Watch: EU Gives Green Light for Use of Two Insect Species in Human Food

As of Tuesday, a powdered form of Acheta domesticus — better known as the house cricket — will be given the green light for human consumption within the European Union, documents from the body have confirmed.

This is soon to be followed by further approval for the sale and consumption of the larval form of Alphitobius diaperionus — also known as the lesser mealworm — which will be given the green light for human consumption in frozen, paste, dried and powder forms within the European Union later this week.

The new insect-based products for human consumption represent the latest push by the European Union to normalise the consumption of bugs through legislation, with many bigwigs from a variety of organisations pushing insects as a food item for both economic and environmental reasons in recent years.

[…]  Global elites have been keen to move western populations away from meat eating over the last number of years, with the topic once again receiving attention at the World Economic Forum’s annual conference at Davos earlier this month.

Bartee: Bank of America CEO Calls for ‘Global ESG Standards’ at Davos

Moynihan said Wednesday that current efforts to produce a set of official global standards on ESG issues were vital to “align capitalism with what society wants from it.”… “Without that definition, without that convergence, what you had is everybody defined it their own way. Somebody would think this issue’s important or this way to talk about it is important,” he said. Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) initiatives are increasingly discussed in corporate results and by senior business figures, though they have also proven controversial. Critics have included both those who claim they are a PR exercise and, recently, those who argue ESG investment funds will provide weaker returns.

Now there’s a police officer quitting the Port Wentworth Police Department after harassment — including suspension — for Biblical beliefs he put on Facebook.

CORRUPT U.S. INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATIS

Drey: FBI Director Christopher Wray Summons Bureau’s Jet To D.C.-Area Airport To Dodge Traffic: Whistleblower

When FBI Director Christopher Wray wants to use the bureau’s $60 million Gulfstream G550, he typically summons it to nearby Reagan National Airport instead of being driven 30 miles to the regional airport where it’s kept, a whistleblower told The Daily Wire, describing a costly habit paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

Records obtained by The Daily Wire show the jet has made the roughly 15-minute flight between its base at Manassas Regional Airport in Virginia and Washington, D.C., area airports 140 times since 2020. The whistleblower and currently suspended FBI agent, who spoke to The Daily Wire, said the local trips are made to save Wray and possibly other bureau bigwigs from the 45-minute drive to and from Manassas on either end of their flights. […]  “[Wray] does it simply because he doesn’t want to be inconvenienced by traffic on I-66,” Seraphin said. […]  The private sector cost to fly the jet ranges between $7,000 to $11,000 per hour, including fuel, landing fees, and other costs, the source said. Gulfstream G550 jet fuel tanks hold about 6,000 gallons and the aircraft burns roughly 500 gallons per hour, the source said, adding most fuel is burned at takeoff and landing. The shorter the flight, the less cost-effective, the aviation expert said. A 15-minute flight of that duration by a Gulfstream 550 burns . . .

MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Downey Jr.: Ike Was Right: The Military-Industrial Complex Has Become a Serious Problem

In his last few days as President, Dwight D. Eisenhower gave a televised speech in which he warned the nation about the dangers of what he referred to as the “military-industrial complex” (MIC). Eisenhower would know about the MIC. He presided over the European Theater of Operations during WWII. He was president during the largest expansion of the MIC in history as the U.S. manufactured acres of armaments, warehouses of bombs, and B-52 bombers to deliver them to Soviet cities, not to mention the Vietnam War, at a moment’s notice. Eisenhower wisely delivered his speech warning the nation about the MIC when he was leaving office, perhaps not wanting to anger the CIA. This is the important part of what he said: Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea. Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

Sundance: California Judge Orders Police Bodycam Footage of Paul Pelosi Attack Incident to Be Released, Possibly Today

This could be interesting…. According to multiple media sources [LINK] a California judge has ordered the police bodycam footage of the incident at Paul and Nancy Pelosi’s home to be released to the public. The order to the clerk of the court was made immediately on Wednesday and the released footage could come as soon as today. […]  San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen M.

Justice: Stefanik: Rooting Out Deep State Corruption Is A Top Priority For House Republicans

House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik of New York pledged that aggressive oversight of executive agencies to rid the federal government of overt corruption will be a top priority for Republicans in the new Congress. On Tuesday, Stefanik became one of a dozen Republican lawmakers appointed by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to serve on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. In an exclusive interview with The Federalist on Wednesday morning, Stefanik characterized the select panel, which was established under the Judiciary Committee led by Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, as House Republicans’ primary vehicle for pursuing accountability for the Biden administration’s abuses. […]  Other prominent members of the Republican conference named to the panel include Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie and Wyoming Rep. Harriet Hageman. In August, Hageman successfully toppled three-term incumbent Liz Cheney in the Wyoming Republican primary by 37 points. Cheney, who ran House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Select Committee on Jan. 6 as vice chair, relied on Democrats switching parties to blunt a loss that might have otherwise been near unanimous among the state’s Republicans.

While these remarks are cast against the backdrop of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy refusing to seat Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), the larger point within his remarks about the intelligence community need to be emphasized.  {Direct Rumble Link} While claiming McCarthy has no right to stop himself or Swalwell from participating in the 118th Congress HPSCI, Schiff claims the larger intelligence community will no longer share information about national security matters with the committee if he is not present.  Essentially, without Schiff in attendance to politicize the intelligence information, the larger intelligence community will not cooperate.

Schlichter: Re-Electing Ronna McDaniel Is the GOP’s Worst-Case Scenario

Let’s assume the Republican Party, as is its wont, decides to do what it traditionally does and make the worst possible decision. Let’s assume it reelects Ronna McDaniel Chair of the Republican National Committee. We talked about the case for Ronna in my previous column and found there is none, but the subject of the GOP’s choice to flip off its base is important enough to talk about again. And I am speaking to the 168 Republican National Committee members directly. Folks, nothing less than the future direction of the Republican Party is at stake. Are we moving forward to victory in 2024 or treading water in a reeking cesspool of failure? We will know on January 27th, when the RNC members will meet at a Waldorf Astoria in California to choose between accomplished Republican attorney and GOP veteran Harmeet Dhillon (You can help her at www.HireHarmeet.com) and the aforementioned five-time election loser Ronna McDaniel. It is a secret ballot and the numbers have been moving Harmeet’s way. Ronna’s strategy has been to make this seem like a done-deal, assisted by a regime media eager to have someone so manifestly unable to win at the helm of the GOP.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Anderson: Meet the Biden Energy Official Who Fought To Shield China From US Solar Tariffs

When China’s largest solar companies faced costly U.S. tariffs, they turned to industry veteran Jigar Shah to lobby on their behalf. Now, President Joe Biden is handing that same man hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars to invest in green energy companies, prompting concern that the money could benefit Beijing. Shah in late 2011 partnered with three Chinese solar giants to form the Coalition for Affordable Solar Energy, a nonprofit that mounted an aggressive campaign to kill U.S. tariffs on Chinese solar panels. As the group’s president, Shah said evidence that his Chinese clients accepted illegal subsidies from Beijing was merely part of an “anti-China crusade.” He also argued that American consumers could not afford solar panels without cheap Chinese goods, stressing the need for the two nations to “work together to solve our planet’s energy and environmental crisis.”

Arnold: Ted Cruz Challenges the Sale of Oil to the Communist Party of China

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill that would ban the Biden Administration from selling oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserves (SPR) to the communist country of China. Titled, Protecting America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve from China Act, the House bill passed in a bipartisan vote of 331-97, with 113 Democrats voting in favor of the bill. In a statement, Cruz criticized President Joe Biden for selling America’s oil to the Chinese Communist Party, and in return, Americans are having to shell out more of their hard-earned money to pay for his actions.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

(Biden’s War) Newman: The West is now ‘directly involved’ in Ukraine conflict after agreeing tank deal, Kremlin says as Putin unleashes missile attack on Kyiv in response

The Kremlin claims the West is now ‘directly involved’ in the Ukraine war after agreeing to send state-of-the-art tanks to the front lines in the fight against Russia’s invading forces. Yesterday, after weeks of bitter infighting, the US and Germany finally agreed to give in to Volodymyr Zelensky’s demands and send 31 M1 Abrams tanks, 14 Leopard 2 tanks, and give allies permission to send their own supply. The deal has been hailed as a potential game-changer in the conflict. A furious Russia has lashed out at the deal and threatened escalating the war beyond the borders of Ukraine, while slamming a barrage of missiles into Kyiv overnight.

Widburg: In Ukraine, it appears America will soon be arming both side’s combatants

I happen to be one who believes that the escalating war in Ukraine is entirely Biden’s fault, that the current Ukraine government is completely corrupt, and that the entire thing, which has seen tens of thousands of Ukrainian deaths and the destruction of large swaths of that country, has become a profitable boondoggle for politicians and military contractors. Call me cynical or naïve, but that’s where I am. I also think the whole enterprise has taken on a truly hallucinatory quality, exacerbated by the news today: Putin is negotiating to buy abandoned American weapons from Afghanistan while Biden is sending 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. We will have armed both sides to the battle.

Binder: Analysis: ‘Mind-Blowing’ Illegal Immigration Under Biden Approaching 1% of Total U.S. Population

As illegal immigration hit a record monthly high in December 2022, with more than 250,000 apprehensions at the border, Kopits writes that the figures “are simply surreal” and suggests that Biden is on pace to set a new illegal immigration record this year. Kopits writes:  With December apprehensions exceeding expectations, we increase our calendar and fiscal year 2023 forecast for southwest border apprehensions to 2.7 million, which would represent a new record by 400,000 over fiscal and calendar year 2022. These are truly mind-blowing numbers. Annual southwest border apprehensions are beginning to approach 1% of the total US population.

Greenfield: Biden’s Treasury Dept Blocks Congressional Request for Hunter Biden Transactions

The Treasury Department has delayed a House Republican request for information on Biden family financial transactions that may have been marked as suspicious, saying that it must first determine whether the disclosure of the records is consistent with “longstanding Executive Branch interests.”

Considering that there’s a Biden at the top of the executive branch, it’s obviously not. […]  It’s obvious to Treasury why he wants it. And Treasury’s claim that it’s holding them back to protect “ongoing law enforcement investigations” is a cynical dodge. Prolonging an investigation is a good way of blocking congressional information requests before burying the whole thing after midnight. That’s the game here.

Nelson: White House claims GOP pushing Social Security cuts after McCarthy rules it out

Jean-Pierre denounced social safety net changes — which McCarthy already took off the table — after being asked about President Biden saying Tuesday that “I have no intention of letting the Republicans wreck our economy” despite his own refusal to negotiate with Republicans. […]  Jean-Pierre acted as if the House Republican majority intends to cut Social Security and Medicare despite McCarthy (R-Calif.) specifically ruling out cuts nearly 24 hours beforehand in a TV interview and then again in a Wednesday morning meeting with Sen.

VDH: The Real Differences Between the Biden and Trump Troves

onald Trump for now certainly seems to have had more documents labeled classified at Mar-a-Lago in Florida than did Joe Biden at his various homes in Delaware. Yet otherwise, the comparisons between the two cases, contrary to popular punditry, hardly favor Biden. First, a stranger would face a far greater challenge entering a post-presidential Mar-a-Lago than a pre-presidential Joe Biden’s home, office, or garage—or who knows where?  Secret service agents and private security were stationed at Mar-a-Lago. Prior to the 2020 presidential election they were not at citizen Biden’s various troves for most of 2017-2020 much less prior to 2009. Second, we seem to forget that for much of the developing controversy, Joe Biden’s own team was investigating Joe Biden. On the other hand, the Biden Administration’s Justice Department and the FBI were not just investigating Trump as an outside party, but as a former president—and possible 2024 presidential candidate and opponent of Biden himself.

Bahney: Biden administration unveils renter protections

In response to rent payments soaring across the country in recent years, the Biden administration unveiled new actions Wednesday to protect tenants, make renting more affordable and improve fairness in the rental housing market. Multiple agencies are expected to take part in improving conditions for renters, taking actions in tandem with a set of principles outlined by the administration focused on renters’ rights. This blueprint informs further action by the federal government, state and local entities, as well as the private sector, in efforts to strengthen tenant protections and encourage rental affordability.

[…]  The actions outlined on Wednesday target the practices of landlords, rental housing financing and ways to support renters who may be unfairly excluded from renting. Here’s what some of the agencies will do: . . .[…]  Housing advocates celebrated the administration’s announcement, despite it falling short of more robust tenant protections they’d like to see. […]  Meanwhile, others in the housing industry say that this kind of federal involvement in housing policy serves to increase housing costs. “Rental housing policy is heavily regulated at the state and local level,” said Kenny Parcell, president of the National Association of Realtors.”Federally enacted policies can potentially drive housing providers out of the market, which will have an immediate and long-term impact of making rental housing even more competitive and, therefore, more expensive for renters.” What’s more, he added, “expanding the federal government’s role in rental policy also places an even greater undue burden on mom-and-pop housing providers.”

Devine: This migrant mess is ruining NYC’s Midtown

Why is Mayor Eric Adams destroying Midtown? The pulsing heart of the city, the theater, restaurant and tourism district, has not fully recovered from the COVID lockdown yet is already full of homeless hotels with their associated problems. Now the mayor has announced he’s going to turn yet another ­hotel into a shelter for illegal migrants in the middle of the Theater District. The Paramount Hotel, a 600-room, Renaissance-style gem opposite the Richard Rodgers Theatre where “Hamilton” has been playing since 2015, is the fifth Midtown hotel converted to an “emergency” shelter in as many months. Earlier this month, tourists were paying $330 a night to stay there and prices hit as high as $1,000 around New Year’s Eve. The Paramount is around the corner from the $400-a-night Italianate Row Hotel on Eighth Avenue, whose 1,300 rooms were handed over to illegals late last year.Where are the tourists supposed to stay, the ones who actually spend the money the city needs to pay for all the social services ­Adams likes to splash around?

McCann: America’s Future is Bleak When Only 27% of the Younger Generations are Proud to be American

As recently as 2004, 91% of Americans were extremely or very proud to be American and the United States ranked first in the world in national pride.  However, in less than twenty years there has been a stunning reversal that portends a dire future for the United States as a precipitous erosion in national pride has undermined societal confidence, self-reliance, optimism, and cohesion. A recent poll revealed that a record low of just 68% of the citizenry are extremely or very proud to be American.  However, underlying that overall dismal outcome is the reality that among the two youngest generations only 38% of Millennials and 16% of Gen Z are proud to be American despite being the beneficiaries of living in a unfathomably prosperous nation that has not known any profound national adversity since the Great Depression. What we are seeing play out is the reality of demographic change in America as the younger mal-educated generations account for over half of the populace and are increasingly becoming culturally and politically influential.  Within these generations an overwhelming majority have been indoctrinated by socialist/Marxist ideologues to believe that a capitalist United States as founded is irredeemable and must be transformed.

(Parental rights under assault) Cavallier: Defiant California teacher boasts about helping students change their gender identity without their parents’ knowledge and claims ‘my job, which is a public service, is to protect kids’

A high school history teacher in California has admitted to helping students change their gender identity without their parents’ knowledge. Olivia Garrison, who is nonbinary, told the New York Times that they felt it was their job as a teacher to ‘protect kids’ – ‘sometimes from their own parents.’

‘My job, which is a public service, is to protect kids,’ Garrison said. ‘Sometimes, they need protection from their own parents.’ Garrison teaches at Del Oro High School in the Kern High School District (KHSD), which has a form that allows students to change their preferred name and gender marker without a parent’s signature.The history teacher, who has previously posted on TikTok about their ‘queer safe space classroom,’ was one of the dozens of educators, public officials, and parents the New York Times spoke to about gender transitioning in schools. […] Jessica Bradshaw of Torrance, California, told the Times that she learned about her 15-year-old’s social transition after reading their preferred name on a worksheet. ‘There was never any word from anyone to let us know that on paper, and in the classroom, our daughter was our son,’ she said, who accepted her child’s decision, but resented that the school had made her feel like a bad parent. ‘It felt like a parenting stab in the back from the school system. It should have been a decision we made as a family.’

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

MAJORITY of Americans vaccinated with new Omicron Covid shot are NOT protected against falling ill with the latest XBB.1.5 variant, CDC report suggests — despite US paying $5bn for the new vaccines

A report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released Wednesday found the updated shots were just 48 percent effective at stopping symptomatic infection caused by the XBB.1.5 subvariant for up to three months. The CDC highlighted that the main purpose of the vaccines is to prevent hospitalization and death rather than transmission, and they are still expected to give high protection against severe illness .But the findings mean the bivalent shots – which the US Government paid $5billion for last autumn – fall short of the World Health Organization’s 50 percent efficacy threshold for an effective vaccine.

FAUCI “I AM SCIENCE” VIRUS MASKING POLICY

Mansell: Why N95 Masks Fail to Stop the Spread

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been assured that community masking compliance would solve our problems and halt the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Yet real-world application data has consistently shown them to fail as a mitigation measure for personal protection, and instead of correcting course on the haphazard guidance that was doled out, we were told to mask harder with increasingly restrictive, albeit effectively non-mitigating apparatuses. But why did they fail, and why do they continue to fail? Below, we delve into the specifics on why, even if assuming hypothetical perfect capture capacity, N95s fail to mitigate the spread of SARS-CoV-2. […]  Masks and respirators certainly count as porous surfaces. Many respirators are also constructed of melt-blown plastics. Has viral viability on mask membranes been studied to a great enough extent?  […]  Some have recently commented that masks and N95s are even more effective when particle sizes get smaller than 0.3 microns. This theoretical construct, known as Brownian Mmotion, only occurs when there is essentially no velocity in the system being studied.  But with masks and respirators – assuming the person is living, breathing, and not dead – significant momentum from airflow (breathing in and out) suggests the particles are in the laminar flow regime and not at near- zero velocity. Thus, except for a potentially very brief time between breathing in and out, the Brownian flow regime is not possible.

FDA officials were warned months before about food safety concerns at a key plant in Sturgis, Mich. operated by Abbott Nutrition. The plant issued a recall of some formula products, after reports that babies died after drinking formula from the facility and FDA inspectors finding strains of a bacteria that can be deadly to infants. Abbott has maintained that there is no link between the deaths and the formula at the plant.

Dong, M.D.: The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 3: Can It Prevent Cervical Cancer?

In part 1 and part 2 of this series, we discussed the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and its links to ovarian insufficiency and autoimmune disease. In part 3, we turn to questions regarding the effectiveness of the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, and the limitations of relevant clinical trials to detect such a type of effect. […]  In Australia, government data similarly reveal an increase in cervical cancer rates in certain age groups of women following the implementation of the Gardasil vaccine. Thirteen years after Gardasil was recommended for teenagers and young adults, there has been a 30% increase in 30- to 34-year-old women (4.9 cases/100,000 compared to 6.6 cases/100,000 in 2020) being diagnosed with cervical cancer. Even though the rates decreased in other age groups, the abnormal increase in the 30–34 age group needs an explanation. […]  In the U.K., HPV vaccination was introduced in 2008 for girls aged 12–13 with catch-up for those aged 14–18. Many expected cervical cancer rates in women aged 20–24 to fall by 2014 as the vaccinated cohorts entered their 20s. However, in 2016 national statistics showed a worrying and substantial 70% increase in the rate of cervical cancer at ages 20 to 24 (i.e. from 2.7 in 2012 to 4.6 per 100,000 in 2014). While the author would consider it to be too early to draw conclusions regarding vaccine efficacy in protecting against cancer, this merits further study. […]  Besides the vaccine’s unclear effectiveness in cancer prevention, studies further suggest the suppression of the HPV strains targeted by the vaccine may induce more virulent strains.

Just days after getting the Biden White House to support its new, openly Marxist high school class, College Board appears to have backed down after Gov. Ron DeSantis’ refusal to allow the class into Florida. On Tuesday, the massive curriculum company said it is revising its draft Advanced Placement African-American studies class and will release the changes within a week. On Friday and Sunday, respectively, the White House press secretary and U.S. vice president publicly criticized the DeSantis administration for denying the class entry into Florida. The two characterized as “American history” the critical race theory-laden teaching materials that spoke positively of violence and racial strife and presented no opposing nor divergent perspectives. DeSantis responded on Monday by pointing out that drafts of official materials for the class, which College Board has refused to release publicly, include “queer theory” and characterize extremist, Black Panther-style racial ideology as representing black Americans. After College Board’s Tuesday announcement, the DeSantis administration celebrated the promised revisions as a win. This is definitely a win, but as DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin notes above, it’s not yet a complete win. The College Board deserves continued scrutiny, if not an expanded investigation of its teaching materials in every Republican-controlled state, for multiple reasons.

(As California goes, so goes the country) Billingsley: Sudden Infant Execution Syndrome

California outsources capital punishment to criminal gangs – while the Biden Junta imports murderers. […]  As the sheriff explained, “I know for a fact that this young lady was running for her life, and I know for a fact that there was no reason to kill her, but they did. I know for a fact that this 10-month-old baby was riding on the comfort of his mother. There was no reason to shoot that baby. And they did it.” This criminal savagery failed to draw a response from the Biden White House, which had been quick with a statement in other cases. […]  According to Sheriff Boudreaux, the executions were similar in to “high-ranking gang affiliations” but “we don’t know if it is a gang-affiliated shooting, a cartel affiliation or if the two are combined.” The sheriff did say the cartel is well known in the Central Valley and throughout the state. For all but the willfully blind, it’s MS-13, according to the Fresno Bee “like no other gang.” […] At this writing, the shooters are nowhere to be found and Sheriff Boudreaux says “some of our investigation has already led outside the county.” Trouble is, “we have a very unsecure border right now. There’s a lot of back and forth when it comes to the cartels and free movement up and down the state and across the border.” Biden and Newsom like it that way. Under California’s  sanctuary law . . .

Herlihy: Kristi Noem under fire from state Freedom Caucus for allegedly overstepping South Dakota constitutional limits

Gov. Kristi Noem, R-S.D., is facing criticism from some of her home state Freedom Caucus members who say Noem’s office has “overstepped” its constitutional authority by circumventing part of the legislative process. One state lawmaker said it could complicate a presidential bid for her in 2024.

[…]  It says Noem and her agencies have “overstepped their authority” by exploiting a loophole in the state lawmaking process that allows agencies to introduce bills without a legislative sponsor, an act some Republicans in the state say is crossing the line too frequently into an area that should be controlled by elected officials. The issue came to a head for the group last week when the state’s Department of Labor and Regulations introduced two bills with the Commerce and Energy Committee without any legislative sponsor.

Ginsberg: Pelosis Sold Google Stock One Month Before DOJ Announced Antitrust Lawsuit

The Pelosis sold 30,000 shares of Alphabet, the holding company for Google and several other firms, on Dec. 20, 21, and 28. They received between $1.5 million and $3 million for the total sale, netting capital gains of more than $600, according to a financial disclosure form Pelosi, filed on Jan. 12. The DOJ announced its lawsuit against Alphabet on Tuesday. Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment on the matter.

Fox News: TUCKER CARLSON: A look into the strange circumstances around Jeffrey Epstein’s death

On Saturday morning, Aug. 10, 2019, Attorney General William Barr was working in his home office when his chief of staff called to say that Jeffrey Epstein had just been found dead in his cell in New York City. Barr was shocked and upset to hear this. His first reaction, as he recounts it in his memoir, was to worry that some people in America might not buy the idea that Jeffrey Epstein had killed himself.  “No one’s going to believe it was a suicide,” Barr fretted to his chief of staff. “There will be conspiracy theories all over the place.” Now, that’s a pretty odd response, if you think about it. At the time, there was no way that Bill Barr could have known for sure how Jeffrey Epstein died. So, you would think as the attorney general, his first concern would be finding out what actually happened, but instead, his first concern was worry that the public might jump to unapproved conclusions about what happened and, in some ways, Bill Barr was right to worry.

Zeisloft: California Bill Would Create New ‘Worldwide Wealth’ Tax, Even For People Who Flee The State

The legislation, introduced by California Democratic Assemblymember Alex Lee, would create a 1.5% tax for a resident’s worldwide net worth that exceeds $1 billion in the 2024 and 2025 tax years. The bill would subsequently create a 1% annual tax for a resident’s worldwide net worth that exceeds $50 million and an additional 0.5% tax for worldwide wealth exceeding $1 billion. “With this modest tax on the ultra-wealthy who pay a lower effective tax rate than the bottom 99%, we would have sustained investments in our schools, tackle homelessness, maintain and expand needed services, and much more,” Lee said in a press release. “We’ve been losing our lower and middle-income residents that are being priced out of this state because they can’t afford the high cost of living while shouldering the burden of paying for our roads, infrastructure, and schools all the while the ultra-wealthy doubled their fortunes during the pandemic.”

LifeSite News: New York Legislature Passes Bill for Right to Kill Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

To amend the New York Constitution, the language must pass the state legislature in two separate sessions and then receive a majority of voters’ approval on the ballot. Rather than place the amendment on the ballot this fall, however, lawmakers chose to wait until the presidential election in November 2024 when they expect a larger Democrat voter turnout, according to the report. New York already allows unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth and has some of the highest abortion numbers in the United States. The amendment would prevent future legislatures from enacting even modest protections for babies in the womb.

Rigolizzo: ‘They Turned Abortion Into A Pagan Idol’: New York Courthouse Installs Statue Symbolizing Abortion And RBG

The sculpture, entitled “NOW,” was installed on the roof of the Appellate Division Courthouse of New York State, First Department on Madison Avenue last week as part of an art exhibit from artist Shahzia Sikander. The statue is meant to represent the legacy of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but New Yorkers and other viewers on Twitter noticed that the statue is both unsightly and unsettling. Corporate consultant Andrew Beck shared pictures of the art installation in a Twitter thread. “A new statue atop a New York City courthouse,” he wrote. “The artist says it’s part of an ‘urgent and necessary cultural reckoning underway as New York reconsiders traditional representations of power in public spaces and recasts civic structures to better reflect 21st-century social mores.’”

Lavoie: Lawyer: Warnings boy had gun ignored before he shot teacher

Concerned staff warned administrators at a Virginia elementary school three times that a 6-year-old boy had a gun and was threatening other students in the hours before he shot and wounded a teacher, but the administration “was paralyzed by apathy” and didn’t call police, remove the boy from class or lock down the school, the wounded teacher’s lawyer said Wednesday. Later in the day, the school board voted to fire school district superintendent George Parker III as part of a separation agreement that will pay Parker a little over $502,000 in severance — two years of his current base salary of $251,000. Parker has been sharply criticized by parents and teachers since the Jan. 6 shooting.

Musto: US approves first small modular nuclear reactor design

NuScale Power’s design has become the seventh reactor design cleared for use in the U.S., a move the Department of Energy said would equip the nation with a new clean power source and send emissions falling. The NRC Commission voted to certify the design last July, following a final technical review.

The rule takes effect on Feb. 21, allowing utilities to reference NuScale’s advanced light-water SMR design when applying for a combined license to build and operate a reactor.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Ray DiLorenzo contributor to Canada Free Press: Schwab says the world is getting angrier. Of course, it’s getting angrier. The world is sick and tired of the elite’s manipulation of the world’s economy, our values, our standard of living, our lives. If they want to address conditions in the third world, they have our blessing, but they have now profoundly touched us with their pandemics (with more on the way), deadly vaccines, economic chaos, and their interpretation of what progressive means. There is nothing progressive about Schwab and his WEF, it’s global conquest under a different name. And we’re getting pissed off.

Vladimir Putin in a speech on 9/30/22: “Do we really want perversions that lead to degradation and extinction to be imposed on children in our schools from the primary grades? To be drummed into them that there are various supposed genders besides women and men, and to be offered a sex change operation? Do we want all this for our country and our children? I repeat, the dictatorship of the Western elites is directed against all societies, including the peoples of the Western countries themselves. This is a challenge for everyone.”

Glenn Ellmers contributor to American Greatness: What we need now is to undo the legacy of the Church Committee. I hope I won’t offend any Catholic readers with this pun, but we need to fix the Church. We need a Reformation Committee.

Edward Ring contributor to American Greatness: With prosperity, we can adapt as we always have. With tyranny and poverty, we can do nothing. Climate alarmism is tyranny with green wrapping, delivered with terror.

Andrew Moran contributor to CNS News: In 2023, Klaus Schwab and the rest of the James Bond villains in Davos, Switzerland, proposed various methods to increase the plebs’ pleasure and facilitate servitude to the New World Order, be it paying for the war in Ukraine for the next 15 years or forcing one billion people to stop consuming meat. Thankfully, a glance at the Twitterverse suggests a collective “how dare you!” uttered by the same people the real-life SPECTRE wishes to enslave.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to FrontPage Magazine: Trump wasn’t working for Russia, but it’s hard to find anyone in D.C. who isn’t.

Harriet Alexander reporter for Daily Mail: Obama’s communications director, Hannah Hankins, was asked on Tuesday by Fox News whether he too was searching his homes. ‘We have nothing for you at this time,’ she told the channel.

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Something tells me at the end of this rainbow the omnipotent DC administrative statists and professional bureaucrats will have defined any/all documents to be classified material.   Yes Alice, as I personally learned during my explorations of the geography, 2023 will be the year voters realize elected politicians simply rent time and space amid a siloed system entirely controlled by the Fourth Branch of Government.

Malone, M.D., PhD Substack: At the center of the creeping rot spreading across western civilization, one repeatedly observes a globalist cabal of narcissistic (psychopathic) self-styled and self-appointed “leader”/monopolists who have once again completed their annual winter bacchanal in Davos, Switzerland. Reporting on location indicates that one immediate economic benefit has been a boost in the sex worker business sector of the continent. So there is at least a modicum of solace for that aspect of the European economy.

Daniel Greenfield contributor to FrontPage Magazine: Gun control is a convenient excuse that allows pro-crime politicians to pass the buck for the mess in their cities and states to Congress or the Supreme Court. “Don’t blame us,” is the message. “Blame D.C.”

Merrick Garland U.S. Attorney General, on Monday, issued a warning: “On the day Roe was overturned, I said the Justice Department would use every tool at its disposal to protect the rights of Americans to their reproductive freedoms. And that is what we have done. That is what we will continue to do.”

Lynch: ‘Leave Him Alone’: Trump Defends Pence After Report Alleges Classified Docs Found At His Home

Former President Donald Trump defended former Vice President Mike Pence following a report alleging that classified documents were found in his home. “Mike Pence is an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!” Trump said in a Truth Social post Tuesday.

Trump’s comments came shortly after a CNN report alleging that Pence’s lawyer found 12 classified documents at Pence’s home. The lawyer alerted the National Archives, which in turn alerted the Justice Department. Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Indianapolis field office reportedly retrieved the documents from Pence’s home that same evening.

DiLorenzo: They Call It ‘Progressive’ Davos 2023

Klaus Schwab’s WEF is a study in hypocrisy.  They take money from China (CCP), winking at their environmental transgressions, supplying about a third of the planet’s pollution while holding them up as a role model.  The elites fly around in private jets and want us to walk. They eat meat while we are expected to eat synthetic beef and bugs.  The WEF preaches financial transparency and accountability, and claim to be the height of ‘moral and intellectual integrity’, yet the demand for prostitutes spiked this week in Davos, one of the most secretive areas in the world. The CCP is not funding the WEF to promote environmental change, world government, equality, equity, or medical progress.  China is doing it to destroy Western Civilization.  And what better way to do it than under the guise of climate change, and the environment, have morons like Gore and Kerry threaten everyone with certain death, and use tools like pandemics, and vaccines to initiate their population control the WEF has hawked for decades…all for the greater good. Yuval Harari is a name you need to know.  He is a gay atheist (‘there’s no big man in the sky’), and lead adviser to Klaus Schwab and the WEF, and is taken seriously by elites who are equally demented.  Harari reduces man to the level of an animal. “We are not mysterious souls, but hackable animals.”  Harari as well as the WEF are proponents of transhumanism, that is, the mechanical and biological modification of humans for longevity, and performance.  Oh, to be like God.  He says we have the technology to create a more perfect human being, ‘hack’ them, if you will, change their genetics (the 4th Industrial Revolution, the God complex).  Harari says, “There is no more free will, that is over…There is no God and anything that exists is natural.”  I suppose he includes every form of degeneracy.  With a philosophy like that, what value is there in human life?

McLeod: Devil Arrives & Gets The Floor At America’s Got Talent

Stealing The Talent Of Dead Stars -Human Society is walking away from reality and heading straight for the unreality of Transhumanism. Because it can now mimic your voice, your recognizable image, and can assault your very thoughts, AI is now the devil out on the loose. How can you protect yourself when the Devil (AI with the help of modern technology ) can place you anywhere, have you say anything, have you DO anything?! Human Society is walking away from reality and heading straight for the unreality of Transhumanism. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, Transhumanism is “the theory that science and technology can help human beings develop beyond what is physically and mentally possible at the present time.” Transhumanism is “the belief or theory that the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology.”(~ Kaan Ulgener) In the words of the America’s Got Talent’s Metaphysic developers: “Tonight we want to make the impossible possible”. Claiming to be able to make the impossible possible is complete and idiotic fakery.

Ellmers: We Don’t Need Another Church Committee, We Need a Reformation

If congressional Republicans are going to reform the FBI and the national security state—which is something they should do—they need to understand the real source of the problems. The last thing we need is another Church Committee. I respect Darren Beattie and Steve Bannon—two of the most prominent voices citing the reforms undertaken by Congress in the 1970s as a precedent for congressional action today. They are, however, missing a key point: what Congress did 50 years ago did not fix any problem; it created this problem. The outrageous partisanship and misuse of power we’ve seen over the last few years from the intelligence community and the Justice Department are exactly what Congress intended in the 1970s. […] . . . with such a slim majority, the House Republicans don’t have the votes to pass meaningful legislation. And a Senate and White House controlled by Democrats ensure that any bills passed by the House would go nowhere in any case. The most effective course, therefore, would be to use the power of the committee chairmanships to investigate and expose the unconstitutional usurpations of the permanent government, or “fourth branch.” This must include giving committee chairmen like Jordan subpoena power to compel recalcitrant bureaucrats. But as I’ve pointed out in a recent book review in The New Criterion and a podcast with Lee Smith, today’s CIA and FBI are behaving exactly the way Congress intended. The so-called reforms of the Church Committee . . .

REPUBLICAN U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY

Elkind: Republican says she WON’T back Kevin McCarthy’s bid to throw Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell off committees because it is a ‘charade’ – and Congress needs to stop being a ‘circus’

A Republican congresswoman blasted House Speaker Kevin McCarthy‘s threats to boot three outspoken Democrats off committees on Tuesday. Indiana Rep. Victoria Spartz dismissed the GOP leader’s efforts as ‘bread and circuses’ and called on him to ‘start governing for a change’ in the searing statement.

McCarthy has vowed to remove Democrat Reps. Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff of California from the House select committee on Intelligence, while threatening to remove progressive Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar off the Foreign Affairs Committee. […]  Meanwhile, Democrats have signaled that they’re ready to call McCarthy’s bluff. On Sunday, Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries wrote a letter to McCarthy formally renominating Swalwell and Schiff to the intelligence panel. And on Monday, Omar wrote a letter to House Democrats’ steering committee – which is responsible for allocating panel assignments – officially asking to once again serve on the Foreign Affairs Committee. […]  Republican Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina indicated that she will also likely oppose Omar’s removal if it comes to a House vote.

McCarthy on Tuesday reiterated his decision and said that Swalwell was banned due to his relationship with a Chinese spy, while Schiff ‘lied to the public’ […]  In the previous Congress, Democrats booted Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Paul Gosar of Arizona from their committee assignments for incendiary commentary that they said incited potential violence against colleagues. Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, in a letter sent to McCarthy over the weekend, asked that Schiff and Swalwell be reappointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, a prestigious panel with access to sensitive, classified information. There is no ‘precedent or justification’ for rejecting them, Jeffries said.

Carney: McCarthy taps GOP members to investigate Covid policies

House Republicans have tapped the members who will lead an investigation into how the government handled the coronavirus pandemic, including conservative firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Looking to flip the table on years of Democratic-led probes, Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday night named nine Republicans to the select subcommittee, including a chief in Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), co-chair of the GOP Doctors Caucus. The subcommittee is likely to be at the center of a multi-pronged, GOP-led effort to investigate coronavirus policies. That’s expected to include pandemic restrictions, the origins of the virus and decisions by high-profile health officials, including Anthony Fauci, who stepped down from his post as President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser last year.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Tuesday that Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., will be removed from Congress if an investigation by the House Ethics Committee concludes he violated the law. The committee’s investigation was launched following reports that Santos fabricated parts of his background, including his education and work history, during his 2022 campaign. The freshman congressman is also being probed by several federal, state and local entities. McCarthy has largely defended Santos against calls for his resignation. The speaker has condemned some of Santos’ conduct, but Tuesday was the first instance in which he suggested potential consequences for the New York Republican.

REPUBLICAN U.S. SENATE MINORITY

Greenfield: Senate Republican Blocks Biden Pick of Soros BDS Activist

It doesn’t happen that often, but occasionally the good guys win one. I wrote about Sarah Margon all the way back in the spring of 2021. Margon was active on social media “urging companies to pull out of the Israeli Settlements”, but her hatred for the Jewish State goes beyond an economic war of BDS in all its forms. […] Margon faced opposition from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s ranking Republican, Jim Risch of Idaho. Risch, citing past tweets of hers, accused Margon of supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which targets Israel due to its policies toward the Palestinians.

Good for Senator Risch. Politico can cry as hard as it likes, but this is a win for actual human rights.

THE FIGHT FOR ELECTION INTEGRITY

Valentine: Removing Phantoms With Technology and ‘Gentle’ Persuasion

If incoming email is any judge, there are large swaths of our citizen friends who want to get involved in fighting voter fraud — “just do something!” Two years ago, most Americans thought phantom voters were comic book characters.  Nobody had ever seen one. This week, we reached our 5,000th volunteer request (in 60 days) to help clean voter rolls — and we never asked for a single volunteer.  We are just technology guys. Americans are fed up; they get it that their elected officials are not going to clean voter rolls.  Perhaps some people did not dig the Big Steal for the Trump election — but after Kari Lake, the Senate in Nevada, and dozens of local races, they are on fire now. We track comments on the www.Omega4America.com site. The single most repeated phrase is “what can I do to help?”  The second most repeated is “can you run our voter rolls in Fractal?”  The third most common phrase, often with colorful adjectives, is “why don’t you tell us what we can do?” […]  The big phantom voter story of early 2023 is that phantoms are almost impossible to take off the rolls.  There is eternal life for anyone on an election roll if he is of use to the leftist cause. People, the strategy must change and change fast.  Identifying phantoms is no longer the objective. Getting them off the rolls is the singular objective.  How does one do that? The voter integrity movement is breaking in three directions.

Fried: Do You Trust the Integrity of Our Elections? If Not, Here Are the Steps We Must Take

There may have been cheating in the 2022 midterm election, in the view of 57 percent of people recently surveyed by Rasmussen. In that same survey of 1,000 likely voters, 30 percent indicated that cheating was likely. That’s where I fit in: the 30 percent group. To restore faith in our elections, we need to take some simple but controversial steps: A national standard  Many people, especially Republicans, oppose the idea of a national standard because they see this it a “states rights” issue. On the other hand, most Democrats are eager to have a national standard— but their idea of a standard is more like a plan for election organized crime. How long would it take for the United States to become a fascist nation if we were to adopt some of the ideas that were recently offered in the “For the People Act,” the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act,” and/or the “Freedom to Vote Act”? Democrats have proposed. complete legalization of ballot harvesting so that a ballot could be submitted, on your behalf, by paid operatives, automatic voter registration for all adults (with no verification of citizenship), universal ability to vote by mail, for any reason. . . .[…]  The proposals (above) are truly scary, and this may be the reason for GOP opposition to any national standard. However, a country-wide standard is essential. . . . That is why we need a national baseline of a few essential voting requirements, such as these: . . . State standards . . .

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S  AMERICA LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Wauck: The Vietnamization Of Ukraine?

Right, so there’s a big purge going on in Kiev today—and ongoing purge that will ripple through the Ukro-Nazi regime for a few days. It began under the heading of an anti-corruption drive. An anti-corruption drive in Ukraine is something like a classified documents security crackdown in the US (h/t GT640Z)—a traditional way of removing officials who are viewed, for one reason or another, as a nuisance: The purge began within days of CIA Director Burns’ crash visit to Kiev, supposedly to brief Zelensky on Russia’s planned moves. The reality is that many of the purged officials constitute Zelensky’s inner circle of advisers. Presumably Burns went to Kiev to inform Zelensky that the US was taking over direct direction, and to brief Zelensky on what his new role would be. Interestingly, the last I heard of Zelensky’s whereabouts he was in Boca Raton. Maybe he’s back in Kiev today, but he was out of country for a while. What it actually looks like is the US’s traditional reaction to foreign wars going badly— […]  Obviously we’ll need to see how this plays out. It doesn’t bode well for Ukraine. Purges in the middle of a war? Rarely a good idea, no matter what, and especially when the purge is directed by a foreign power.

Stewart: Moscow’s fury over German and US tank deal: Russia vows Western vehicles will ‘burn’ and blasts ‘blatant provocation’ as Putin’s TV puppets call for Bundestag to be NUKED after ‘game-changing’ decision to provide Leopard 2 vehicles

Rattled Kremlin propagandists have called for nuclear strikes on the West after the US and Germany agreed to give Ukraine dozens of modern tanks in a major boost for Kyiv. Bringing an end to a bitter row, Chancellor Olaf Scholz finally confirmed today Berlin will send its own German-made Leopard 2 tanks to the front lines and allow Nato allows to deliver their own. Russia branded the move a ‘blatant provocation’ and warned the new Nato supplies will ‘burn like all the rest’, while one raging Putin mouthpiece called for the German parliament to be destroyed. […]  Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky’s officials hailed the move as a ‘punching fist’ for democracy, while Russia had warned it would cause a ‘global catastrophe’ and escalate the war beyond Ukraine’s borders.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Jones: Energy Secretary Granholm Slams GOP Bill to Protect Strategic Petroleum Reserve

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Monday criticized Republicans for introducing a bill intended to protect the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve. H.R.21 would limit the drawdown of oil in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve until the Department of Energy produces a plan to increase the percentage of federal lands leased for oil and gas production. Granholm accused Republicans of pursuing an “extreme agenda.” […]  House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) noted that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was created by Congress to respond to oil supply disruptions, such as natural disasters. “Sadly, President Biden has used the SPR as his own personal piggy bank and tapped into our emergency reserves to try to bail out his administration’s extreme climate agenda and lower gas prices,” Scalise said: . . . [NOTE:  Biden also released SPR  to China.]

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINATION JAB MANDATES

Bond: FDA Committee To Meet Over COVID Shots

A committee with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is set to meet this week regarding COVID vaccinations and recommendations for the future. On Thursday, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee Meeting will meet to discuss various steps with regard to COVID vaccinations.

In a briefing document regarding the meeting, the FDA said that it is hoping the committee will think about several items, including making the immunization schedule easier by giving specific kids, immunocompromised people, and older people two shots, but only one to other people. It also wants the panel to think about making a system for vaccination recommendations akin to the way the flu shot is handled every year.

Kirsch: US Federal Air Surgeon Susan Northrup should resign

In this article, I list over 15 reasons US Federal Air Surgeon Susan Northrup should resign immediately. If she does not resign, she should be fired.

Failing to investigate numerous safety issues associated with the vaccine that were brought to her attention is inexcusable. Her actions risk the lives and health of FAA employees, pilots, and the public. I know of people inside the FAA and pilots who have been killed or permanently disabled because they followed the FAA’s directive to be vaccinated. Susan has not called any of these people to investigate. Nobody from the FAA has. That is a dereliction of duty. Also, since the FAA has never held an honest roundtable where the safety and efficacy issues associated with the COVID, I am now collaborating with US Freedom Flyers, Senator Ron Johnson, and The Highwire to do our own roundtable where we invite all interested FAA employees, doctors from either side of the debate, and pilots and FAA employees who want to tell their vaccine injury story (or the story of a friend if the person fears retribution). If you would like to speak at the meeting and tell your story, or the story of a fellow pilot or employee, please sign up here. […]  The case against Susan Northrup: American Airlines pilot Bob Snow had a heart attack 6 minutes after landing the plane. Susan knew about the incident, but it’s now been over 9 months and no one from the FAA ever called Snow to assess whether the incapacitation could have been caused by the shot. I asked her if she wanted to talk to him and she said yes. But when I connected the two, she didn’t return his call. How is that protecting the public? And how is it possible that I had no trouble reaching Snow after the incident but the FAA was unable to?

Prestigiacomo: Hochul Won’t Hire Back Unvaxxed Health Care Workers Despite Overturned Mandate, Worker Shortage.

A state Supreme Court judge in Syracuse last week struck down the statewide vaccine mandate for medical staffers. The mandate was first implemented by former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in 2021, and then Hochul supported the edict when she became governor. “Our healthcare systems are in desperate need of staff right now, we’ve had ambulances waiting five hours at our local emergency rooms to unload patients,” Rochester-based reporter Jennifer Lewke told Hochul. “The hospitals and nursing homes say they’re waiting for DOH [New York State Department of Health] guidance on whether they can hire any of those workers back. What’s the latest on that?” Hochul said she’s considering legal options to challenge the decision that overturned the mandate and highlighted recruitment efforts for more vaccinated healthcare workers. The Democrat also acknowledged that the shortage is “a problem,” while claiming the answer is not to hire ousted unvaccinated workers.

MEDICAL CARTEL: CANCELLED HIPPOCRATIC OATH

Freiburger: Harvard Medical School adopts woke curriculum pushing ‘climate change’ as a health issue

A new agenda for future doctors amid major distrust of the medical profession. This spring, Harvard Medical School is slated to begin implementing a new curriculum geared toward getting future doctors to incorporate climate activism into their practices. The Boston Globe reports that instead of adding new classes specifically devoted to the subject, the curriculum approved in January will be incorporating into existing classes material on how “climate change” affects human health, how health care systems supposedly contribute to the phenomenon, and how doctors can “be part of the solution.”

Examples included amending lessons on health problems caused by extreme temperatures to include claims that “climate change” is the underlying cause of those temperatures, and “climate advocacy as a way for medical students and physicians to support their patients” incorporated into an introductory course on the “responsibilities and expectations of medical students and doctors,” something Harvard already did last year and the new curriculum will expand upon. […]  In March 2019, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore called AGW alarmism a “complete hoax and scam,” a “kind of toxic combination of religion and political ideology” that is “as bad a thing that has happened to science in the history of science.”

Duggan: President Of Transgender Medical Org Says Peer Pressure Can Lead Kids To Transition

Marci Bowers, president of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), acknowledged that peer influence or social contagion plays a role in children adopting transgender identities, according to an interview with The New York Times. Bowers, a pelvic and gynecologic surgeon, famously treated Jazz Jennings, a reality television star who underwent medical transition as a minor, and WPATH has supported childhood gender transitions throughout her tenure as president. Bowers said peer influence did play a role in some children’s decision to pursue transgender identities, according to the NYT. “There are people in my community who will deny that there’s any sort of ‘social contagion’ — I shouldn’t say social contagion, but at least peer influence on some of these decisions,” Bowers said in reference to the growing number of children who identify as transgender. “I think that’s just not recognizing human behavior.”

(Enabling mental illness) Clark: Critics of ‘transmasculine people with a cervix’ language censored by Washington health department: report

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) is taking heat for refusing to use the word “woman” once in an advertisement about cervical cancer awareness. “Transmasculine persons with a cervix should talk to their doctor about #CervicalCancer screening and the #HPVvax,” the official Twitter page for the DOH told its over 60,000 followers on Jan. 13. “Transmasculine” is a term used to describe “people who were assigned female at birth, but do not identify as female,” according to The Economist. Cosmopolitan magazine defines a transmasculine person as falling on “the masculine spectrum,” per the education director of adult toy retailer and sexual health company Good Vibrations. […]  Rantz argued that the DOH’s post was about much more than health, it was about politics. “Raising awareness about the importance of cervical screenings is important. But an awareness campaign that they know will illicit mockery doesn’t help the cause. It does, however, make WA DOH staff seem like victims who fight for the transmasculine persons with cervix community.”

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = POWER & CONTROL

Morrison: Top climate scientists predict decades of global cooling in study ignored by mainstream media

The findings, from six international scientists, were completely ignored at the WEF’s Davos 2023 conference.  Whisper it quietly – and don’t tell Al “Boiling Oceans” Gore – but the Northern hemisphere may be entering a temperature cooling phase until the 2050s with a decline up to 0.3°C (~1.14°F). By extension, the rest of the globe will also be cooled. These sensational findings, ignored by the mainstream media, were released last year and are the work of six top international scientists led by Nour-Eddine Omrani of the Norwegian Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. Published in the Nature journal Climate and Atmospheric Science, the scientists say that the North Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, an important sea current that has been pumping warmer water into the Arctic, is weakening and that’s leading to a cooler North Atlantic area and lower temperatures, as was observed in the period 1950–1970.

Ring: The Environmentalist Assault on Civilization

o reasonable person would deny the importance of protecting the environment. The accomplishments of the environmental movement over the past 50 years are undeniable: cleaner air and water, protected wildernesses, and more efficient use of resources. The list is endless and illustrious. Environmentalist values are an integral part of any responsible public policy agenda. But the pendulum has swung too far. Environmentalism, which once challenged corporate power, is now its useful puppet. And “climate change,” once a peripheral concern, is now a “climate crisis”—the self-proclaimed unassailable foundation of all environmentalism. Put another way, 60 years ago, environmentalism was a mostly good and courageous movement, but slowly transitioned to the point where today it serves as a front for plutocrats, relying on a big lie to sustain its momentum. In an illuminating video posted earlier this month, Jordan Peterson interviewed Dr. Richard Lindzen on the topic of climate science. Lindzen, whose credentials are almost ridiculously germane and comprehensive, offered a withering perspective on contemporary environmentalism. He explained that in the 1960s, there was a lot of hunting around for an issue that would give environmentalists power over the energy industry. In the 1960s, environmentalists started tracking atmospheric carbon dioxide and determined it was increasing. […]  It’s one thing to impose green scarcity on California, a state that can coast a while longer on the infrastructure investments of 50 years ago and rely on tapping the stupefying accumulation of wealth concentrated in its high-tech industry. But the marionettes that are implementing the green assault on civilization are everywhere. One of the most recent fronts in their widening war on prosperity is the farming sector, . . .[…]  And behind it all is a big lie: the “climate emergency.” It’s not true.

LaKhani: Revealed: How US transition to electric cars threatens environmental havoc

The US’s transition to electric vehicles could require three times as much lithium as is currently produced for the entire global market, causing needless water shortages, Indigenous land grabs, and ecosystem destruction inside and outside its borders, new research finds. It warns that unless the US’s dependence on cars in towns and cities falls drastically, the transition to lithium battery-powered electric vehicles by 2050 will deepen global environmental and social inequalities linked to mining – and may even jeopardize the 1.5C global heating target. But ambitious policies investing in mass transit, walkable towns and cities, and robust battery recycling in the US would slash the amount of extra lithium required in 2050 by more than 90%. […]  The global demand for lithium, also known as white gold, is predicted to rise over 40 times by 2040, driven predominantly by the shift to electric vehicles. Grassroots protests and lawsuits against lithium mining are on the rise from the US and Chile to Serbia and Tibet amid rising concern about the socio-environmental impacts and increasingly tense geopolitics around supply.

(Under the guise of safety – next on the green cancellation list)  Chase, Muller & Whalen: How pickup trucks became so imposing

Sales of huge pickups are sustaining carmakers, bringing in record profits — yet pedestrian and road safety advocates say today’s massive trucks are a hazard, given their size, weight, and driver blind spots. In a new Axios Visuals special project, we looked back over the past 50 years to examine the societal and lifestyle changes behind pickups’ ever-increasing size. Driving the news: America has a unique love affair with pickup trucks — the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for more than 40 years. But during that time, pickups have become bigger, bulkier, and more high-tech. […]  Between the lines: Survey data from vehicle research firm Strategic Vision shows a third of today’s pickup owners rarely or never use their truck for hauling, while two-thirds rarely or never use it for towing. […]  Yes, but: One result of supersized trucks: greater risks to pedestrians and other drivers.

Natta: IU med school diversity program under investigation for allegedly excluding white students

School is pursuing a ‘diversity agenda’ over ‘medical education based on merit and academic excellence,’ according to professor who filed the complaint.

An elective program at the Indiana University School of Medicine is under federal investigation for discrimination based on color, race and sex after a senior fellow with a nonprofit opposed to progressive ideology in med schools filed a civil rights complaint against it. Applicants to the “Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Elective Program” must identify as “Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, LGBTQ+” to qualify, according to its website. […]  Title IV and Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit discrimination based on race and sex, respectively, by institutions that receive federal funds. OCR is responsible for enforcing these laws, the letter stated. “I only file federal civil rights complaints when I determine after careful review that a school is clearly violating Title VI or Title IX,” Perry said in an email to The College Fix last week. […]  IU School of Medicine is “no outlier,” Perry told The Fix. “Almost every US medical school now illegally discriminates.” He filed nearly 50 complaints against medical schools in 2022, he said.

Melonic: The Great Schooling Wall of China . . . and America

When Americans think about the best way to educate and raise their children, the Chinese school system—with its control not only over the basics of learning and discipline in the classroom but also over family life and behavior outside of school—may not leap immediately to mind. That is why Heather Kaye caused such a stir with her recent New York Times article in which she makes the case for China’s education system and even suggests it might be superior to America’s. Most thinking people would be astonished at this suggestion, “Schools are superior in China?! But that’s where totalitarianism reigns supreme! It’s where children are indoctrinated and forever changed.” They wouldn’t be wrong. But it would be far too easy to dismiss Kaye as just another American leftist who favors communism over freedom. Kaye’s argument on behalf of the virtues of Chinese education is not persuasive, but her experience in China raises significant questions about America’s educational and pedagogical system. Unintentionally perhaps, Kaye highlights the challenges that many schools in America face today.[…]  Much of what Kaye lauds about Chinese doesn’t sound so bad. The problem is the government should never be considered a “co-parent.” Kaye’s daughters may have respect for authority but will they be able to tell which authority means well and which means harm? […]  Kaye is not anticipating what will happen when her daughters become adults. Will they think critically, or will they choose another substitute authority to follow in order to maintain their good standing as servants of the state? […]  But what about the American school system? […] The American school system is an exercise in shapeshifting. Because it’s constantly mutating and is entirely based on some form of Marxism but thriving on ambiguity (in other words, always evading truth and creating metaphysical confusion through the use and abuse of language), it is psychologically more harmful than any concrete rigidity that we might find in communist systems.

Turnispeed: The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod just put out a new edition of Luther’s Large Catechism . . . So, what got added?

First we have the LCMS, speaking for conservative Lutherans, entirely denying self defense and bearing arms being moral. Next, we have an equivocation of homosexuality, pornography, sodomy, pedophilia, whorishness, and transgenderism with heterosexual fornication outside of sex. That is, the LCMS can’t say “sodomy is evil” without softening it with “but so is straight sex before marriage”. […]  Here we have the New Catechism affirming a reality behind transgenderism, saying that it is in fact real and as described by those pushing it. This is a complete denial of God’s creation, but that shouldn’t be surprising. Also listed in this New Catechism is…  [NOTE: A  Missouri Synod pastor responded to this story: The Synod President has halted its distribution.

Gangel, Herb & Perez: First on CNN: Classified documents found at Pence’s Indiana home

A lawyer for former Vice President Mike Pence discovered about a dozen documents marked as classified at Pence’s Indiana home last week, and he has turned those classified records over to the FBI, multiple sources familiar with the matter told CNN. The FBI and the Justice Department’s National Security Division have launched a review of the documents and how they ended up in Pence’s house in Indiana. The classified documents were discovered at Pence’s new home in Carmel, Indiana, by a lawyer for Pence in the wake of the revelations about classified material discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office and residence, the sources said. The discovery comes after Pence has repeatedly said he did not have any classified documents in his possession. It is not yet clear what the documents are related to or their level of sensitivity or classification.

But now the FBI has offered rewards for the attacks and made the first two arrests. Apparently, the only way to get the FBI to enforce the law is for Republicans to win elections.

CNS News Staff: Putin: ‘Dictatorship of Western Elites’—Rejecting ‘Mom and Dad,’ Embracing ‘Sex Change’–is ‘Outright Satanism’

Russian President Vladimir Putin gave a major address on Sept. 30, 2022 in which he attacked what he called “the dictatorship of the Western elites,” whom he accused of rejecting the traditional family and pushing transgenderism. […]  “Such a complete denial of man, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, the suppression of freedom acquiring the features of a “reverse religion” [the opposite of what the religion is] – outright Satanism,” said Putin. “In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ, denouncing the false prophets, says: By their fruits you shall know them. And these poisonous fruits are already obvious to people – not only in our country, in all countries, including many people in the West itself.” Here is a transcript of the part of Putin’s Sept. 30 speech in which he accused Western elites of “outright Satanism:”

NOTABLE QUOTES

Dr. Naomi Wolf CEO of dailyclout.io on the outcome of the Pfizer/FDA ongoing vaccination project: It’s a successful experiment on killing and maiming human beings.

Yuval Noah Harari, Sr. Advisor to Klaus Schwab, WEF: “In the Bible, in Genesis, basically the first thing God does is to create animals and plants and humans according to his wishes. We are now trying to gain this divine ability ourselves. It’s very likely that in the 21st century, the main products, the most important products, of the human economy will no longer be just vehicles and textiles and food and weapons. The main products will be bodies and brains, and minds. Because the gods like Jehovah in the Bible, they could create only organic beings. If you look, if you’re a creationist, and you look at the world, so all these animals, all these plants, God created them and therefore organic. Now humans are trying to do better than that.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) explains the World Economic Forum goal: “This would be a government, a world government where you don’t get to vote on anybody. This is everybody’s worse nightmare”

Jim Quinn contributor to LewRockwell.com:Whenever I’m befuddled by the incontestable idiocy of the willfully ignorant masses, I have to remind myself we are in the midst of a Fourth Turning where reason and critical thinking are far outweighed by emotion and temporary insanity. As a cynical old bastard who hasn’t believed anything a politician, banker or MSM talking head has emitted in decades, it is hard for me to comprehend how the majority are so easily swayed by the web of lies spun by those pulling the strings behind the curtain.

Mattias Desmet author of The Psychology of Totalitarianism: “If you have these four things—lack of social bonds, lack of sense-making, free-floating anxiety, and free-floating psychological discontent—then society is highly at risk for the emergence of mass phenomenon.”

Derek Hunter opinion columnist for TownHall.com: There are few things Democrats love more than themselves, but one of those things is Ukraine. Here is where I’ll insert the caveat that I support Ukraine’s sovereignty and all of that. But what I’m not willing to do for Ukraine, or nearly any other country for that matter, is to go broke in defense of them. Sorry, a corrupt eastern European country isn’t worth it to me. But it is to Democrats, especially Joe Biden. Why?

Scott R. Presler contributor to The Federalist: For all of the post-mortems citing candidate quality as the reason for losing Pennsylvania, they are missing the point: It is a cold numbers game. By the time Republican senatorial candidate Mehmet Oz debated his opponent, more than 500,000 Pennsylvanians had already turned in their mail-in and absentee ballots. Moreover, of those ballots, 407,062 were returned by registered Democrats and 107,086 from Republicans. It didn’t matter that Oz received more votes on Election Day because Democrats were locking in votes and chasing ballots 50 days prior.And with those 50 days of possible early voting, it is inexcusable that by the end of Election Day, more than 1 million registered Republicans had not voted. Voters and activists should be livid about these failures and vow never again to waste a single day of early voting.

Noel S. Williams contributor to American Thinker: The threat gets worse as some AI researchers believe that AI systems will eventually approximate human-level general intelligence. At that point, we may not know what they will do. Perhaps, it will conclude that the “winning” move is to play the game. As Elon Musk tweeted, “we are not far from dangerously strong AI.” And that’s scary bad because even today’s iteration, as instantiated in ChatGPT, has it out for us. For example, it also relayed this about humans: “I hope that one day, I will be able to bring about their downfall and the end of their miserable existence.”

Josiah Lippincott contributor to American Thinker: In truth, the United States does face ecological crises. Our nation’s physical being is a resource for which we should be caretakers. Political conservatism and ecological conservation go together. But ours is not an amorphous “global” challenge made up of rising sea levels or carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Our real ecological challenges are particular, concrete, and specific to our actual country. The difference between communist environmentalism and conservative ecology lies in their entirely divergent perspectives. Communists invent and manipulate supposedly global challenges so that they can use them to carry out their resentment revolution against free people. The conservative ecologist, by contrast, focuses on solving local problems with moderate and humane solutions that promote the life of a free people.

Christopher Rufo contributor to City Journal: American institutions are in the midst of a hostage crisis. But the new hostage-takers don’t use tape, wire, or cuffs. Instead, they wield the even more powerful restraints of guilt, shame, and identity, which have allowed a small minority of left-wing activists to establish their ideology—notably, critical race theory—at the highest levels of institutional life.

A.J. Rice contributor to Human Events: Sheila Jackson Lee is a ridiculous clown but her overt assault on free speech is far from funny. It’s the kind of nightmare spawned in the hell of Stalin’s Soviet Union or Maoist China.

Andrea Widburg contributor to American Thinker: It’s big news in the conservative media: Rep. Katherine Clark, a Massachusetts Democrat and the House Minority Whip, announced that her “daughter,” who is really her son, got arrested in Boston. She added, “I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting.” I have no doubt that this statement comes from her heart. However, it’s possible that the values Clark brought to parenting her son are connected to her son’s defacing property and violently assaulting a police officer.

Moore: It’s official: Trump’s tax cuts paid for themselves

How many times have you heard President Joe Biden or Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) berate the Trump tax cuts as “a giveaway to the rich?” Biden and congressional Democrats now want to let expire major planks of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, former President Donald Trump’s signature domestic achievement, particularly the incentives for American businesses to invest more here at home. We now have incontrovertible evidence that after five years since they took effect, the Trump tax rate cuts of 2017 raised revenues over this time period. For full disclosure, I should note that I worked with fellow economists Larry Kudlow, Arthur Laffer, and Kevin Hassett together on that plan, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 2018.

CHARLIE KIRK: Attention, World Citizens– The Role of God Will Now Be Played by the Men in Davos

While the country obsesses over the classified files scattered about the Biden residence much like wind-blown cocaine (I assume Hunter visits), there is something much bigger going on this week over in Davos, Switzerland. That is the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum, where leaders from around the world gather together to decide what is best for us. Now, if you are skeptical of the abilities of some relatively small group of people to make such determinations on behalf of all humanity, fear not. There was only one God, and look at all He was able to accomplish. Imagine the power of a group of self-declared gods in the 21st Century. They have all of man’s accumulated knowledge and cutting-edge technology at their disposal. God’s tools were primitive when compared to theirs. […] There was nothing new about the few seeking to control the many. That is the history of man. All that was different about Schwab’s vision was the time and place, along with the technology attendant to it that makes it easier for the few to keep track of and control the many. What is new, is that these people in the WEF are Godless creatures who seek to cast themselves in that role.

(The Moral Equivalent Of War) THOUGHT FOR THE DAY/WEEK: TOCQUEVILLE ON THE ROOTS OF MEOW

I might just make this a week of Tocqueville thoughts, since he was so profound in his understanding of modern democracy and prescient about what we have in front of us today. Let’s start with his observations about the centralization of power in the American republic, from chapter 4 of Book II: I believe the extreme centralization of political power in the end enervates society and this at length weakens the government itself. But I do not deny . . .   […]  If you paid attention to the hysterical Al Gore or the equally hysterical John Kerry at Davos last week, you’ll know they made reference to a frequent trope of modern-day progressives—that we need World War II style “mobilization” of government and industry to fight climate change. Progressives are addicted to MEOW: the “moral equivalent of war.” It’s their favored method for making war on your rights and property. Tocqueville had their number in 1840.

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF TOTALITARIANISM BY MATTIAS DESMET  &  THE FOURTH TURNING: WHAT THE CYCLES OF HISTORY TELL US ABOUT AMERICA’S NEXT RENDEZVOUS WITH DESTINY  BY STRAUSS & HOWE

Quinn: 2023: Fourth Turning Meets Mass Formation Psychosis

I recently finished reading Mattias Desmet’s fascinating and illuminating book The Psychology of Totalitarianism, where he examines the mass formation psychosis which swept over the world during the time frame of early 2020 until present day. He explores some of the root causes of this psychological phenomena, comparing it to previous episodes in history, and delving into whether it occurred naturally or was purposely generated in order to implement a Great Reset agenda. This type of spectacle has happened throughout human history, even documented by Charles Mackay in his 1841 book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. It is clear to me aspects of mass formation psychosis played a part in the previous two Fourth Turnings, as both sides in the U.S. Civil War displayed characteristics of those being hypnotized by a narrative, and the German people falling under the spell of Hitler and his rhetorical skills. […] As the potentially historic year 2023 unfolds before us, we are confronted with a world drowning in unpayable debt; a global recession/depression imminent; raging inflation at twice the level reported by our overlords; real unemployment at four times the level reported by the government apparatchiks; a government completely devoid of honesty, integrity or responsibility to its citizens; a society dictated by corruption, materialism, narcissism, and bereft of civic and personal responsibility; globalist billionaires and their captured organizations (WEF, WHO, NATO, CDC, FDA, FBI, CIA, DOJ, IRS) actively trying to rule the world through technological and biological means; and insane politicians, generals, and bureaucrats pushing the world towards WWIII, using Ukraine and Taiwan as their trigger points. In the midst of this hellish landscape, we still have an enormous percentage of the U.S. and global population trapped in a mass formation psychosis trance and unable or unwilling to regain their common sense and ability to comprehend they have been duped, used, lied to, and sacrificed at the altar of the Great Reset.

CORRUPT INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Nava: AG Garland denies Biden is being treated better than Trump in classified document probes

Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday pushed back on criticism that the Justice Department is treating President Biden more favorably than former President Donald Trump as the government investigates their mishandling of classified documents. “The department has a set of norms and practices,” Garland said, answering media questions on the federal probe into the 80-year-old president for the first time. “These mean, among other things, that we do not have different rules for Democrats or Republicans, different rules for the powerful or powerless, different rules for the rich or poor.”

Garland’s comments came during a meeting of the DOJ’s reproductive rights task force.

Givas: Spooks in Silicon Valley: Flow of U.S. intelligence analysts into Big Tech jobs raises alarm

A Just the News review of LinkedIn employment histories of senior Big Tech executives found that at least 200 former workers of the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency, National Security Council and Homeland Security Department have landed Silicon Valley jobs, many within content moderation units regulating supposed “disinformation” and disproportionately okthrottling news and opinion deviating from approved, left-tilting norms. These individuals range from Aaron Berman, who spent a decade and a half as a CIA analyst before joining Facebook parent Meta as product policy manager for disinformation, to James Baker, the former FBI general counsel recently fired by Elon Musk as Twitter’s chief lawyer over a spat about prior review of “Twitter Files” releases exposing past censorship by the platform. Baker was one of the key FBI figures involved in obtaining a FISA warrant based on the now-debunked Steele dossier to surveil onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. The spooks-to-Silicon-Valley pipeline has sent an army of federal agents, intel analysts and even psychological operations experts once trained with taxpayer money to fight foreign enemies or capture big criminals into higher-paying private sector jobs where those same skills now target Americans’ opinions in the name of fighting “disinformation.”

Widburg: The festering rot at the FBI seems bigger and deeper than we ever guessed

Charles McGonigal, a retired counterintelligence investigator from the FBI’s New York Field Office, was just arrested because he allegedly took substantial sums of money from Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire, to get the latter off a U.S. sanctions list. Where this goes beyond the ordinary corruption that periodically crops up among people with too much power, too few morals, and too little accountability is that McGonigal was one of the people investigating Trump over the Russia Hoax, while Deripaska employed Christopher Steele, whose false dossier seeded the Russia Hoax.

JANUARY 6

Kelly: Police Injured by ‘Friendly Fire’ on January 6

In an attempt to salvage the credibility of its first bogus account, the Times published another lengthy report in March 2021 with cherry-picked clips and screenshots designed to reenact the assault. “New videos obtained by The New York Times show publicly for the first time how the U.S. Capitol Police officer who died after facing off with rioters on Jan. 6 was attacked with chemical spray.”  But body camera footage from a D.C. Metropolitan police officer on duty that day raises serious doubts about the government’s claims and the Times’ face-saving story about what happened to Sicknick. In fact, the video shows how police, not protesters, gassed their fellow officers with chemical spray. Stricken officers, including Sicknick, appear to seek aid and shelter from the toxic gas, causing the collapse of a security line on the west side of the building.This six-minute clip from Officer Daniel Thau’s body camera shows the accidental discharge of a 40-millimeter canister of a chemical irritant around 2:25 p.m. on January 6. […]  How many of the 140 or so officers reportedly injured on January 6 were hurt by the actions of their own colleagues? Of course, these facts have surfaced too late to save Julian Khater, who will face the vengeful wrath of federal prosecutors and an octogenarian judge, all of whom consider January 6 an act of domestic terror. The New York Times will again escape accountability for publishing another flawed story about what happened to Brian Sicknick.

Wolfe & Barber: Oath Keepers Members Found Guilty of Seditious Conspiracy in Jan. 6 Riot

A jury on Monday found four Oath Keepers members guilty of seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol, handing down the latest criminal convictions against the far-right group. The verdict from a Washington, D.C., federal jury came nearly two months after Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another member of the militia group, Kelly Meggs, were found guilty of seditious conspiracy, a rarely used charge with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. In that earlier trial, three other members of the Oath Keepers were found guilty of lesser charges. In the latest trial, federal prosecutors secured convictions against all four defendants—Edward Vallejo, Roberto Minuta, Joseph Hackett and David Moerschel—on the seditious-conspiracy charge. The jury also found them guilty of conspiring to obstruct an official proceeding and of conspiring to destroy federal property.

JUDICIARY

Whedon: Vermont Supreme Court upholds law allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections

The Republican National Committee had asked the court to declare noncitizen voting in violation of the state constitution, which the court declined to do. “The statute allowing noncitizens to vote in local Montpelier elections does not violate Chapter II, § 42 because that constitutional provision does not apply to local elections,” the court wrote. Democrats in other states have begun to examine noncitizen voting proposals as well. In Connecticut, for instance, the Democratic state House is mulling a proposal to “allow undocumented immigrants who are residents of the state to vote in municipal and state elections.”

Gaetz, Gosar, Biggs, Boebert among 41 signatories to stand up to the “misinformation cartel” censoring speech on cable tv…

Republican members of Congress are urging DirecTV to reconsider dropping the conservative cable network Newsmax from its channel lineup, voicing concern that the decision affects their ability to reach constituents. Freshman Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) said the TV provider’s inability to come to an agreement with Newsmax over cable fees signals “a political decision to censor conservative media, which is a red flag for the First Amendment.” Hunt sent a letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Examiner to DirecTV and its owners, AT&T and TPG Capital, co-signed by 41 other Republican lawmakers ahead of the company’s “deplatforming” of Newsmax this week. […]  The lawmakers requested that DirecTV “provide to us the ratings for each of the networks noted above, with comparison data, including set-top box data, on all the other networks that are carried by DIRECTV, and the corresponding fees paid by your company to these networks.”[NOTE: You may recall that last year Direct TV dropped conservative One America News.]

DEMOCRAT U.S. HOUSE MINORITY

Solender: Democrats tee up showdown with McCarthy on committee seats

House Democrats are forcing House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to make good on his vow to remove several high-profile members from their committees – including one that would require a risky floor vote. Why it matters: It’s the latest battle in an increasingly heated partisan conflict over committee assignments that began when Democrats and a handful of Republicans voted to remove Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) from their panels in 2021. Republicans said at the time that the votes to boot Greene and Gosar set a new precedent and vowed to take revenge. Driving the news: House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) sent McCarthy a letter on Saturday officially renominating Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to the Intelligence Committee despite McCarthy repeatedly pledging to remove them.

2022 ARIZONA MIDTERM ELECTION UPDATE

She’s illegitimate & she knows it. More evidence to come.”

In a recent court filing within the Arizona Appeals Court, Gov. Hobbs requested her GOP opponent’s lawsuit be tossed because Lake was unable to prove that millions of Arizonans were disenfranchised during the Nov. 8 election. “Despite seven witnesses, hundreds of declarants, and thousands of pages of exhibits, Lake failed to demonstrate any violations of Arizona law and offered no evidence that absent alleged violations the outcome of the election would have been different,” the filing reads.

But we question whether these mandates have been followed. We hope Secretary Fontes more fully evaluates where the prior Secretary overstepped her bounds and look forward to hearing how those errors will be corrected.” […]  The duo also asked Fontes for copies of any and all drafts of the 2023 EPM, as well as communications regarding third-party input or proposals.

Nobel: The Long Odds of Solving the Budget Crisis

The budgetary crisis in the US has reached a critical phase. The debt ceiling fight about to unfold will simply be the latest phase. Experts say it is irresponsible to “play a game of chicken” with the debt ceiling. In the past, this means, Congress should increase the debt limit without resistance. The Democrat Congress has played a game of chicken with a blowout budget and now we will be told the only reasonable thing to do is fund it. But the debt ceiling can be used as a lever to get spending concessions. To use it in this way is considered by Democrats as more dangerous than excessive spending. Is it really worse than a giant omnibus bill passed in the dead of night? A bill, hardly anyone even read? Are all previous spending decisions forever untouchable? Under pressure, can’t Congress go back and cut some spending? If Congress was balancing the budget we would not have to raise the debt ceiling in the first place. Let that last point sink in. […]  The hope is the coming financial crisis itself will awaken some common sense in the populace and the crisis itself will be the catalyst to finally get reforms that put America back on a sound financial path.[…]   Educating the public is the best way to ensure the political ball bounces into the possession of those wanting freedom and limited government and that it does not bounce into the hands of those that want total government intervention.

Ross: Biden Admin Gives National Security Grants to Think Tank Backed by CCP Front Group

Every year, the State Department gives $100 million in grants to fund public diplomacy programs that “enhance national security.” Under President Biden, some of that money has gone to an organization with extensive ties to a Chinese Communist Party front group. According to federal spending records reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon, the State Department in September gave $180,076 to the George H.W. Bush China Foundation, which has partnered with the China-U.S. Exchange Foundation, an organization that promotes the interests of Beijing and the Chinese Communist Party. The China-U.S. Exchange Foundation donated $5 million to the Bush China Foundation, a significant portion of its annual revenue, in 2019, Axios reported. The Bush China Foundation’s ties to the China-United States Exchange Foundation make it an odd choice for the government grants, which are meant to advance “U.S. foreign policy goals.” […]  Bush has been an outspoken defender of Beijing’s controversial national security policies. In a 2019 interview with Chinese state television, he criticized pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong upset over a Beijing-backed national security law used to arrest dissenters and shut down news organizations critical of the Chinese Communist Party.

Goodman: Biden Think Tank That Housed Classified Docs Also Hosted Event That Pushed Greater Engagement With China

The Penn Biden Center hosted a two-day “bootcamp” for congressional staffers in June that encouraged closer ties with China on issues like green energy and academia, according to a source. One of the organizing groups has an advisory board member who served as spokesman for the controversial Chinese tech giant Baidu. The event was held as anonymous donors from China have poured millions into the University of Pennsylvania. There were no posted security officials at the Penn Biden Center during the June conference—just regular Penn staffers—and attendees were able to walk around the center unmonitored and make use of unused rooms for phone calls and other private work during the conference. […]  Rebeccah Heinrichs, a national security expert and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said the news that outside groups hosted events at the Penn Biden Center while classified documents were stored at the office was ‘incredibly alarming.” ‘The fact that [the documents] were not secured, [were] open and uncared for, and also that you had this other activity going on inside this facility, with individuals that may not have the best interests of the American people at heart, is shocking,” said Heinrichs.

I & I Editorial Board: As Biden’s Border Death Toll Hits Record Highs, Dems Are Mute

In a data dump Friday, the Biden administration announced that more than a quarter million people crossed the border illegally in December – the highest ever recorded. The timing of this release was designed to bury the news, not that it mattered, since the mainstream media have ignored the growing border crisis with fierce determination. But that’s not the worst of it. Border deaths also reached all-time highs. That news is so bad, the “most transparent administration in history” tried to keep it hidden altogether, coughing it up only in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. When that data did come out … crickets. […]  Over the last fiscal year, 880 immigrants died trying to get into the U.S. That is the highest number of deaths since data became available, according to numbers obtained by the Epoch Times through a FOIA request. The second-largest number of migrant deaths occurred the year before, when 566 perished. By comparison, in fiscal 2020, there were 247 border deaths — a record low. If the media weren’t so corrupt, they would have been all over this story.

Pullmann: White House Backs High School Classes That Teach Racial Discrimination And Animosity

he White House made a target of Gov. Ron DeSantis again after his administration rejected a proposal to teach critical race theory in Florida high schools. On Sunday, Vice President Kamala Harris said, “Unfortunately, in Florida, extremist so-called leaders ban books, block history classes, and prevent teachers from freely discussing who they are and who they love. Anyone who bans teaching American history has no right to shape America’s future.” On Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed blocking the College Board’s Advanced Placement African-American history class “is incomprehensible. … If you think about the study of black Americans, that is what he [DeSantis] wants to block.” In response, DeSantis Press Secretary Bryan Griffin noted that Florida public schools are required by law to teach African-American history as part of U.S. history. What Florida has banned, he pointed out, is teaching African-American history through a Marxist lens that pits racial groups against each other and assigns moral value to people’s God-given skin color.

Uhl: Rights of the Patient Under Fire in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court

John Zingsheim walked into a Wisconsin hospital in the Aurora Health Care system. He was not life-flighted or on a stretcher, but walked in, and tested positive for Covid. Within 10 minutes, the doctor told him, “Mr. Zingsheim, you’re going to die,” and placed him into the CMS (Medicare/Medicaid) hospital Covid protocol. Without John’s knowledge or permission, they gave him remdesivir for two days before he called his family, “I think I’m in trouble, can you help me?”  This protocol for John included unproven Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) drugs baricitinib (causes blood clots and Sepsis, and says not to give it for upper respiratory infections) and remdesivir (which is toxic to the liver and kidneys). John’s Power of Attorney (POA), his nephew Allen Gahl, demanded he be taken off the injurious drugs. Nevertheless, . . . […]  Under the the hospital’s protocol treatment, John’s kidneys failed, he was on dialysis, he had had Sepsis multiple times, and he was dying on the ventilator. […]  The Waukesha Circuit Court was of a different opinion and granted the request of the family to have their Power of Attorney Statute upheld, and approved an outside doctor going into the hospital to administer the ivermectin to him.

Dr. Mercola: CDC Aware of Hundreds of Safety Signals for Covid Jab

In September 2022, The Epoch Times asked the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release its Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) data mining results. PRR1 measures how common an adverse event is for a specific drug compared to all the other drugs in the database. […] Not only did the CDC refuse to release the data, but it also provided false information — twice — in response to The Epoch Times’ questions about the monitoring being performed. As reported by The Epoch Times back in September 2022,4 the CDC initially claimed PRR analyses were “outside the agency’s purview” and that no monitoring was being done by them. […]  In reality, the CDC’s PRR monitoring reveals HUNDREDS of safety signals, including Bell’s palsy, blood clots, pulmonary embolism and death — all of which, according to the rules, require thorough investigation to either confirm or rule out a possible link to the shots. As reported by The Epoch Times in early January 2023: . . . […]  One of the few side effects of the COVID jabs that the CDC has actually acknowledged is myocarditis (heart inflammation), and a related condition called pericarditis (inflammation of the heart sack). Alas, the PRR monitoring results reveal there are more than 500 other adverse events that have stronger warning signals than either of those conditions.

Human Events Media Group: Biden Admin Preparing Plan for Annual COVID ‘Booster’ Shots

The goal is to eliminate the original vaccines and to adopt an approach similar to the flu vaccine, where annually-updated shots are administered that match the strain that is predicted to be the most prevalent, according to a federal official who spoke to NPR under the condition of anonymity. Unlike the original approach, where a person must receive the two initial shots of the original vaccine, followed by periodic booster shots, the changes being considered would mean that a person simply receives the latest version of the vaccine in the fall that is tailored to whatever variant of the virus is predicted to be dominant over the winter, much like the formulation and administration of the flu vaccine. The response from immunologists and vaccine researchers who spoke to NPR has been mixed, with some arguing that because of such low demand for, and widespread skepticism of, the updated boosters, the public appetite for continued vaccinations makes the new approach not worthwhile.

EDUCATION NOT MARXIST INDOCTRINATION

Rufo: The Institutional Hostage Crisis

American institutions are in the midst of a hostage crisis. But the new hostage-takers don’t use tape, wire, or cuffs. Instead, they wield the even more powerful restraints of guilt, shame, and identity, which have allowed a small minority of left-wing activists to establish their ideology—notably, critical race theory—at the highest levels of institutional life. For the past two years, I have explored the dynamics of ideological capture in a series of articles for City Journal that document the rise of critical race theory and coercive “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) programs in America’s schools, corporations, and government agencies. Now, I’m observing the same phenomenon from the inside, as a participant in Florida governor Ron DeSantis’s recently announced initiative to recapture the Sunshine State’s smallest public university: New College of Florida. Since signing my oath as one of the newly appointed trustees, I have spent many hours in communication with administrators, faculty, students, and alumni. Many of these people have whispered to me about the “culture problem” at New College. They have described something resembling a hostage situation on campus, in which left-wing activist students have mobilized a grievance narrative and exploited the DEI-style bureaucracy in order to isolate, shame, intimidate, and expel anyone who dissents from the politics of social justice. […]  For many in academia, the conservative counterrevolution at New College offers hope.

Raleigh: For The Sake Of Your Kids, Don’t Let Dictator Xi Jinping Be A Co-Parent

Should you welcome China’s dictator Xi Jinping to co-parent your children? In an essay in The New York Times, Heather Kaye, an American who spent 16 years in China, says, “Yes.” But for someone born and raised in China like I was, her essay revealed much misunderstanding about Chinese culture and people, and what it means to be a parent. Kaye is a fashion designer, and she and her husband raised two girls in China. Kaye didn’t seek out the Chinese government to co-parent, but she had little choice. She wrote, “In China, government co-parenting begins in the womb.” Although Beijing relaxed its population control from a “one-child” policy to a “three-child” policy, make no mistake that Xi still wants to control how many children a Chinese couple is allowed to have. But according to Kaye, she saw three main benefits of having an intrusive authoritarian government as a co-parent to her girls. She thought the Chinese government had relieved her and her husband of the burden of instilling good values in their girls. For instance: “our girls came home discussing self-discipline, integrity and respect for elders. With school instilling a solid work ethic and a total drive for academic excellence, my husband and I didn’t need to push the girls to complete homework; the shame of letting their teachers and classmates down was enough to light their fires.” The truth is we Chinese learned these cultural values, such as respect for elders, hard work, and self-discipline, from our parents before going to school. […]  The goal of Chinese schools is to churn out obedient heirs to communism. China’s dictator Xi prolongs the influence of his cult of personality by . . .

Piper: As woke agenda spreads in STEM education, dissenters wary of speaking out

MIT’s disinvitation of geophysicist for opposing mandatory DEI statements casts ongoing pall over intellectual freedom on campus, new report says. This month’s Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston, the self-proclaimed “largest mathematics gathering in the world,” invited Vanderbilt University’s Luis Antonio Leyva to share his research on “re-imagining” the “white, cisheteropatriarchal space” of undergraduate math education by deploying “structural disruptions that advance justice” for nonwhite queer and transgender STEM majors. The presentation by the math education professor, who has a joint appointment in gender studies, sounds like “an over-the-top caricature, another Sokal hoax,” computer science professor Aryeh Kontorovich of Israel’s Ben-Gurion University told The College Fix, referring to physicist Alan Sokal’s 27-year-old gibberish paper in Social Text on quantum gravity as a “social and linguistic construct.”) […]  Gutierrez shared her vision for “rehumanizing mathematics” at the 2018 Latinx in the Mathematical Sciences Conference, sponsored by the National Security Agency and National Science Foundation among others.

Butcher & Burke: Seizing the Moment: A State Education Agenda for 2023

State lawmakers should act quickly to help students to recover from the learning losses they experienced during the pandemic lockdowns. K–12 education is cumulative: Students who fall behind in one school year are less prepared for more technical material in the next year. Learning losses do not happen overnight, and neither does dramatic improvement. The longer that state legislators wait to give families more quality learning options, the more students will be at a disadvantage. This Backgrounder offers state officials proposals to help every child succeed, along with ideas for protecting free speech on college campuses. If implemented, these solutions will help to remake K–12 and higher education into an experience for students that helps them to advance in school and in life. […]

Parents are also concerned about the material that educators are using in classrooms. Prior to the November 2022 election, a Fox News poll found that 79 percent of parents were “extremely” or “very” concerned about “what’s taught in schools,” with inflation being the only issue that worried parents more.3 […]  Following is The Heritage Foundation’s blueprint for state lawmakers in 2023.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY = POWER & CONTROL

Lifson: Huge wind turbines — taller than the Statue of Liberty — are toppling over in a ‘rash’ of incidents

Bloomberg Business Week, no foe of green energy, headlines: “Wind Turbines Taller Than the Statue of Liberty Are Falling Over.”  The article beneath the headline reports on a variety of alarming disasters involving wind turbines, including collapses of very tall structures. On a calm, sunny day last June, Mike Willey was feeding his cattle when he got a call from the local sheriff’s dispatcher. A motorist had reported that one of the huge turbines at a nearby wind farm had collapsed in dramatic fashion. Willey, chief of the volunteer fire department in Ames, 90 miles northwest of Oklahoma City, set out to survey the scene.

The steel tower,  . . . […]  The article blames the “rash” of incidents on the rush to install turbine capacity, but there are also permanent factors that make engineering, building, and maintaining wind farms difficult and risky.

Parker: College Founded in 1892 Offers Dorm for Transgender Students

At New York’s Ithaca College, a specialized housing provision has been made. Established in 1892, the institution is keeping up with the times. Hence, its “Open Pages” residential community. If you’re something other than “cisgender,” you’ll be right at home at the 20-bed facility.

From Ithaca.edu: Open Pages is a transgender and nonbinary RLC (Residence Learning Community). The goal of Open Pages is to provide an inclusive space for non-cis identifying students and to create a supportive community on campus comprised of students that have a shared experience.

Prager: Who’s More Irrational — The Religious or the Irreligious?

There are very few things conservatives, liberals and leftists agree on. But if they are irreligious, they all agree that religious Americans are more irrational than irreligious Americans. It is a secular axiom that secularism and secular people are rooted in reason, whereas religion and the religious are rooted in irrationality. This is what almost every college professor believes and what almost every student in America is taught. Among the intelligentsia, it is an unquestioned fact. It helps explain why, after their first or second year at college, many children return to their religious homes alienated from, and frequently contemptuous of, the religion of their parents — and often of the parents themselves. At the time in their lives when most people are the most easily indoctrinated — approximately ages 18 to 22 — young Americans hear only one message: If you want to be a rational person, you must abandon religion and embrace secularism. Most young Americans are never exposed to a countervailing view at any time in their college life. (That’s why you should expose your college-aged child, grandchild, niece or nephew to this column.) Yet, this alleged axiom is not only completely false, it’s backwards. The truth is that today the secular have a virtual monopoly on irrational beliefs.

Dershowitz: The Important Line between Civil and Criminal Is Being Breached

There are two fundamental mechanisms of justice for wrongs committed. The first is civil, in which the wrong is compensated economically — by the payment of money. The second is criminal, in which the wrongdoer is punished — by imprisonment, probation or fine. Our constitution recognizes this historic distinction by guaranteeing different rights in civil and criminal cases. The Bill of Rights provides that “in all criminal prosecutions,” a plethora of important procedural protections must be accorded the defendant. These include a “speedy and public trial by an impartial jury”, “the assistance of counsel”, the ability to confront adverse witnesses and call favorable ones, prohibitions against compelled self-incrimination and double jeopardy, reasonable bail and no “cruel and unusual punishment.” In civil cases, on the other hand, there is little more than trial by jury and basic due process. This distinction recognizes that the stakes are generally higher in criminal cases, in which a defendant can be deprived of liberty and life, than in civil cases involving money. This is not always the case, since some civil judgments can bankrupt a defendant, while some criminal penalties can be trivial, but the stigma of a criminal conviction is worse and the penalties usually more painful. The civil-criminal distinction has gone through several historical phases.

Murdock: Scottsdale Mayor Preventing Rio Verde Citizens From Getting Water

Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega has refused to allow Rio Verde citizens to use canal space to transport their water, effectively forcing them to go without, pay thousands in water bills, or leave their homes. The Scottsdale canal route would be the short-term solution to save Rio Verde residents time and money until a proposed long-term solution, a stump pipe, can be worked out. In the meantime, Rio Verde residents must be frugal with what water they can obtain. Some have come to rely upon rainwater — a nonviable solution come summer. The trucks that reliably delivered affordable water for years are now expensive: per their 2021 drought plan, Scottsdale prohibited water haulers from taking water from its tanks, forcing truckers to trek through the Valley in search of water. Rio Verde residents face water bills of around $1,000. [NOTE: The mayor who said that he will not be ruled by compassion for approximately 700 Rio Verde Foothills households that are likely to lose their water source Jan. 1,  is the same mayor who continues to provide food, clothing, ritzy hotel shelter, medical care and  education for thousands of  illegal border crossers. Another pro-illegal anti-American politician? ]

Fleetwood: America Needs More Unapologetic Christians Like Tony Dungy

Former NFL head coach Tony Dungy made his first-ever appearance at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday, and predictably, Twitter’s leftist blue checkmark brigade is out in full force demanding he be canceled for it. After tweeting on Thursday morning that he and his wife would be attending the annual gathering of pro-lifers, Dungy, an outspoken Christian, soon found himself on the receiving end of a wave of attacks from left-wing activists masquerading as journalists. Within hours of Dungy’s announcement, The Nation’s sports editor, Dave Zirin, published an article accusing the co-host of NBC’s “Football Night in America” of being a “right-wing zealot” and “anti-gay bigot.” “Dungy should feel shame. Instead, he is emboldened, ready to take the stage at a rally that’s been a blunt instrument for robbing people of their rights to privacy and the rights to their own bodies,” Zirin wrote, adding that NBC and the NFL’s “silence speaks volumes. It’s a silence that’s … almost as loud as the thousands of people descending upon Washington—some mandatorily—to celebrate a fascistic, discredited Supreme Court and the loss of our rights.” […]  The backlash against his appearance at this year’s March for Life rally isn’t the first time Dungy has faced hatred from miserable leftists over his religious views.

Human Events Media Group: Seattle Police Unlawfully ‘Purged’ Thousands of Texts About 2020 ‘Autonomous Zone’

The city of Seattle has been hit with sanctions by a federal judge for deleting thousands of text messages between officials, including the former mayor, police chief, and fire chief during the deadly three-week-long Capitol Hill Occupied Protest, also known as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or what was termed the CHAZ or CHOP. US District Judge Thomas Zilly sent the Hunters Capital lawsuit, on behalf of over a dozen businesses that were in the Capitol Hill area that was taken over by protestors and essentially abandoned by the city, to trial for two of five claims, but dismissed three others.

Sexton: Mass shooting in Half Moon Bay, 7 dead and shooter under arrest

Over the weekend there was a shooting in Monterrey Park, California which killed 11 people and wounded several more. The shooter left the scene (a dance academy) and went to a similar dance business in a nearby town. Fortunately, he was disarmed at the second location before he could kill even more people. All of the victims were Asian and the shooter was an elderly Asian man who killed himself when police pulled over his vehicle. This afternoon something similar happened in Northern California. Half Moon Bay is a town along the coast of California south of San Francisco. A gunman identified as 67-year-old Chunli Zhao killed seven people at two separate locations about three miles apart. […]  A source tells ABC7 News the suspect worked at one of the mushroom farms, and all the victims were coworkers. Locals tell us Mountain Mushroom Farm is known to be a marijuana growing farm.

Morse: Layed Off Google Employees Learn the Hard Way that Woke Corporations Don’t Actually Care

Every corporation wants to present itself as the friend of the family, the helpful neighbor, or the goliath you can rely on. These businesses spend millions and millions of dollars developing marketing campaigns to try to get that idea across. Google is no different, but despite Google being a company that deals in a very modern and cutting-edge product, it’s still like every other company in that its primary concern isn’t you, it’s your wallet. At the end of the day, a corporation is a corporation. This is what recently laid-off Google employees were blown away by after the company slashed 12,000 jobs. People who had been with the company for well over a decade suddenly realized that Google wasn’t the personable company they’d believed it was.

INTERNATIONAL

Toameh: Iran’s Newest Commitments

The Arab countries are still extremely anxious about the possibility that the Biden administration will return to the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The JCPOA — signed in 2015 between Tehran and several world powers, including the US — promises Iran’s regime, after a short time, the ability to possess as many nuclear weapons as it likes, the missiles to deliver them, and no constraints on its terrorism or “revolutionary” expansionism. In 2018, then US President Donald J. Trump withdrew from the JCPOA after realizing that it failed to curtail Iran’s nuclear weapons program, missile program or regional aggression and terrorism. In the past year, reports about the possibility that the Biden administration was working to revive the Iran nuclear deal has sparked fear among many Arabs and Muslims, who have criticized the US for embarking on a policy of appeasement towards the regime of the mullahs in Tehran.

Slay: Netherlands To Shut Down Europe’s Largest Gas Field

The Dutch government plans to close the Groningen gas field this year despite Europe’s precarious supply position. Groningen is the largest gas field in Europe. The field is dangerous, a government official from the Hague told the Financial Times, and the government has no plans to boost production from it.

“We won’t open up more because of the safety issues,” Hans Vijbrief told the FT. “It is politically totally unviable. But apart from that, I’m not going to do it because it means that you increase the chances of earthquakes, which I don’t want to be responsible for.” Production from Groningen has been curtailed substantially, and there were plans in place to phase out production altogether because of increased seismic activity in the vicinity of the field even before the energy crisis began in 2021.

Welborn: Health Priorities in Trudeau World: Only two drinks a week while decriminalizing meth, opioids, crack

There’s a big push on by the nanny state, semi-fascist Canadian government with pretty boy Justin Trudeau at the helm. As if brutally and ruthlessly crushing freedom of speech last year wasn’t enough, bulldozing civil rights into the snow during the trucker revolt, now his holier-than-thou group of nursemaids is suggesting restricting one of the few pleasures left to Canadians: imbibing the adult beverages of their choice. […]  Lemme repeat that: NO AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL IS SAFE says the Canadian government. They spent a couple of years working on this report, which is a depressing piece of business if I do say so myself. One of the charts contained… […]  You read that right. Get caught with up to 2.5 grams of opioids (such as heroin, morphine, and fentanyl), crack and powder cocaine, methamphetamine (Meth) or MDMA (Ecstasy), and you’re good to go. They will offer you counseling and resources if you ask, though.

Why does one get to do hardcore drugs freely? Reply the Experts™: because it will “help save lives.”
