NOTABLE QUOTES

John Binder contributor to Breitbart: Without Title 42, Biden officials admit that up to half a million border crossers and illegal aliens — the equivalent of the resident population of Atlanta, Georgia — could arrive at the border every month.

Steve Rossiter contributor to Canada Free Press: Americans can watch things happen, let things happen, or make things happen.  Where do you fall on this scale?  Vote out Democrats because all Democrats are active Marxists or supporting Marxist’s goals. We need to put the brakes on Marxism in America this November.

Rev. Michael Bresciani  contributor to Canada Free Press: Modern men have decided they are “woke” and in some perverted sort of way, they are right! With a bit of knowledge and a whole lot of pride, todays worldly woke have signed on the dotted line. Every challenge, every disease, every issue, ranging from keeping the planet green, to establishing colonies in space, is possible, and underway.  Even God must be shuffled out of the way, so as not to hinder the progress of man. The idea that all enlightenment is sacrosanct remains a serious error. Some light is what Christ called – dark light.

Ken Masugi, Ph.D., is a distinguished fellow of the Center for American Greatness: If the shooting of 11 blacks in Buffalo brings out Joe Biden, what about this enormous number of black lives terminated due to abortions? If Lincoln could speak in distress in a slave state about the equality of black and white military prisoners, surely some president might speak in defense of the equality of all pre-born life.

Victor Davis Hanson distinguished fellow of the Center for American Greatness: Never in U.S. history has an administration simply canceled immigration laws, opened the border, and welcomed in millions of illegal aliens. All arrive illegally, and without audit, or vaccinations and tests in times of a pandemic.

Elon Musk gears-up to fight opponents inside & outside the government: “Looking for hardcore streetfighters, not white-shoe lawyers like Perkins or Cooley who thrive on corruption. There will be blood.”

Julie Kelly senior contributor to American Greatness: A country filled with happy people thrives. Happy citizens root for each other’s successes, show kindness, and fiercely reject attempts to strip away sources of happiness. A country filled with miserable people is a gift to those in charge because miserable subjects permit their rulers to do just about anything in a vain hope they eventually show mercy and make the misery stop.

Booth: Ego before Party

ADVERTISEMENT

Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has indulged in the worst of all Beltway traditions: the self-serving, post-government memoir. Based on initial reviews and press reports, the sanctimoniously titled A Sacred Oath embodies the worst instincts and bankrupt worldview of American foreign policy elites.  Esper has promoted his book by relentlessly trashing his former boss as, among other things, a “threat to democracy” unfit to serve as President. When nominated in 2019, Esper was a promising candidate for Secretary of Defense in a Trump Administration. In contrast to his immediate predecessor, acting secretary Patrick Shanahan, Esper looked the part and had only spent part (rather than all) of his previous professional career in the employ of a major defense contractor. As a veteran of the Army, Capitol Hill, and the Heritage Foundation—and a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School—Esper was acceptable to the defense establishment. However, unlike previous secretary James Mattis, Esper was a longtime civilian who presumably did not see it as his mission to actively oppose President Trump’s America First policies. Esper’s score-settling is likely borne of personal pique. President Trump fired Esper unceremoniously after rendering him a pariah in polite company—and perhaps less employable—by, among other things, enlisting the help of the Department of Defense (DOD) in responding to the riots that swept the country in summer 2020. Picking a fight with the former President still seems like an ungracious response to the man who elevated Esper from lobbyist to cabinet secretary in less than two years.

GOP

Laco: Republicans introduce ‘Women’s Bill of Rights’ to protect accomplishments, ensure safety of biological females

Republicans are introducing a “Women’s Bill of Rights” in order to enshrine into law protections for females based on their biological sex. Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., is leading lawmakers on the Republican Study Committee (RSC), the largest group of conservative lawmakers on the Hill, in formally introducing the legislation Thursday morning. “I am proud to introduce the Women’s Bill of Rights to affirm the importance of acknowledging women and their unique and distinguishing characteristics and contributions to our nation. As the Left continues to erase women, we must fight for women and their place in our society. Whether it’s keeping the word “mother” in written law, or ensuring women’s domestic violence shelters do not have to accept biological men, we must stand up for women,” Lesko told Fox News Digital. The bill states that the Women’s Bill of Rights is necessary to establish in order to “reaffirm legal protections afforded to women under Federal law” due to that face that males and females have unique biological differences, which increases as they age.

MONKEY POX: 2022 PANDEMIC?

Senger: Monkeypox Was a Table-Top Simulation Only Last Year

Elite media outlets around the world are on red alert over the world’s first-ever global outbreak of Monkeypox in mid-May 2022—just one year after an international biosecurity conference in Munich held a simulation of a “global pandemic involving an unusual strain of Monkeypox” beginning in mid-May 2022.

Monkeypox was first identified in 1958, but there’s never been a global Monkeypox outbreak outside of Africa until now—in the exact week of the exact month predicted by the biosecurity folks in their pandemic simulation. Take these guys to Vegas!

This seems to be a repeat in every way. You’ve got the cases spilling out of this, the hysteria…, the World Health Organization scrambling … the US government ordering these vaccines.”

Arama: Here Comes the Fear Porn on Monkeypox From Joe Biden

If you haven’t been concerned at all about monkeypox, Joe Biden wants to make sure that you are. Biden is in South Korea, embarrassing us by doing such things as getting the name of the South Korean president wrong while standing next to him. But he wanted to make sure that we got the fear porn, if we hadn’t yet. […]  As my colleague Bob Hoge reported, monkeypox isn’t exactly new, it’s been around for many years, although it’s relatively rare. Indeed, there was a case in Dallas last year, and there have been cases in the U.S. before without anyone losing their minds over them. But what is making scientists wonder about this current spread is that people in Britain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the United States, Sweden, and Canada, who are picking it up now seem to have had no travel to Africa before getting it. […]  There’s also a relationship cluster to gay men among the cases, and it’s believed to relate to the less serious strain in West Africa, where only about one percent in poor areas died.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME’S ORWELLIAN MINISTRY OF TRUTH

Turner: No Matter What Happens To Biden’s ‘Disinformation’ Board, The Feds Are Spying On Americans

Now DHS says it is “reviewing” the board while “continuing” its “critical work…to address disinformation.” No matter what happens with the board, it is hard to take Mayorkas’s promise not to monitor Americans seriously. Several recent cases of the federal government spying on Americans as well as DHS’s own actions were certain to make people skeptical. For example, in February of this year, DHS issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin, a memo prioritizing “false or misleading narratives” as a top domestic security threat. The bulletin states that “there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.” This bulletin clearly referenced Americans inside our borders. Also, unlike with the DGB, DHS made no promise to not monitor Americans’ speech. (My organization, the Center to Advance Security in America, submitted several Freedom of Information Act requests for records regarding the NTAS bulletin and the DGB.) Don’t forget Carter Page, either.

Cleveland: Here’s A Play-By-Play Of The Special Counsel Criminal Case Heading Into Week Two

Today starts week two in United States v. Sussmann, Special Counsel John Durham’s false statement case against Michael Sussmann. According to the grand jury indictment, Sussmann lied to former FBI General Counsel James Baker when he told Baker he was not acting on behalf of any client when he provided Baker with data supposedly establishing an Alfa Bank-Trump connection, when in fact Sussmann represented both the Hillary Clinton campaign and Rodney Joffe. After a brief interlude on Friday to accommodate the vacation schedule for a defense witness, former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, on Monday jurors will hear again from the government in its case-in-chief.

Sundance: Apparently, While Investigating Trump-Russia, Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann Never Interviewed Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook

How did Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann spend 2 years investigating Trump-Russia; with a team of 19 lawyers, $40 million in resources, 40 FBI agents, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witnesses; and not find out that Hillary Clinton created the hoax they were investigating? The question is, of course, infuriatingly rhetorical.  The 2017, 2018 and 2019 special counsel probe, led by the nameplate of Robert Mueller, was a DC cover-up operation for FBI and DOJ misconduct.  The best defense is a good offense, so they attacked President Trump by maintaining the hoax.

JUDICIARY

Harper: Arizona Gets a Win in Court Challenge to Biden COVID Funds Tax Restriction

A federal appellate court dealt President Joe Biden a loss Thursday, ruling that Arizona can challenge the administration’s rule prohibiting states from using COVID-19 funds to lower taxes. Biden rallied support and passed the American Rescue Plan Act in March of last year. That law provided funding for states to fight COVID-19 and rebound from the economic consequences, among other things. However, the law included a “tax mandate” preventing states from lowering taxes if they accepted the federal funds. […]  In its most recent budget, Arizona started gradually flattening its progressive income tax down to 2.5%. Effective in 2024, the state will boast the lowest flat income tax in the country of those with a tax on income. “With rising inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, and continued labor shortages, Arizona small businesses would directly benefit from tax relief,” said Karen Harned, executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business Small Business Legal Center. “

Duggan: Buffalo Shooter’s Personal Diary Is Pretty Clear About His Sources Of Inspiration

Before the shooting, which occurred in a predominately black neighborhood, Payton Gendron published a 106-page manifesto online describing himself as a “white supremacist” and “anti-Semite.” Gendron said explicitly in his diary that he developed his beliefs from 4chan and Reddit after the start of the pandemic. “My current beliefs started when I first started to use 4chan a few months after covid started. Many of which I got from 4chan’s /pol/ page and links found in /nsg/ and threads like that,” he wrote in a diary entry labeled Jan. 30, referring to 4chan discussion forums. […]  Numerous media organizations attempted to link Gendron with the Republican Party and prominent conservatives like Tucker Carlson for inspiring Gendron while largely overlooking the shooter’s own words, in which he blamed online forums including Reddit and 4chan while condemning the Republican Party.

FAUCI’S VIRUS: IT’S POLITICAL

Rosas: Illegals Released By DHS Were Not Tested for COVID-19 Before Taking Commercial Flights

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General investigation found many migrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border and later released by DHS were not tested for COVID-19 before they boarded commercial flights to other cities in the country. DHS has been relying on non-governmental organizations to test people for COVID-19 released by Border Patrol but there are towns who either don’t have a non-governmental organization to conduct the testing or they do not have the capacity. A summary of the report stated U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement could not prove single adults, family units, and unaccompanied minors had been given COVID-19 tests before boarding domestic flights:  . . .

BIDEN’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL VACCINE MANDATES

Heine: NIH Study: Vaccinated People Develop Fewer Antibodies Than Unvaccinated After COVID Infection

Unvaccinated people develop much broader antibody immunity after being infected with COVID than people who have received the mRNA shots do, according to an NIH study. And the gap was large whether subjects had mild, moderate, or severe COVID infections. The results of the study, which were highlighted by Alex Berenson on his Unreported Truths Substack, Daniel Horowitz at the Blaze, and Igor Chudov on his Substack newsletter, completely destroy the regime narrative that the shots provide stronger immunity than a natural infection, and may help explain why so many vaccinated Americans are now suffering from multiple COVID infections. The pre-print paper was quietly posted by scientists from the National Institutes of Health and Moderna, and as Berenson noted, “it has received little attention despite its import.”

Durden: “No Quick Fix” – Severe Pilot Shortage Reduces Flights, Sends Ticket Prices Soaring

A severe pilot shortage in the US slashed flights just as the travel season ramps up, which will cause ticket prices to skyrocket this summer, according to CNBC.  The origins of the shortage began in the early days of the virus pandemic when pilot hiring, training, and licensing came to a stall. Then airlines forced thousands of pilots into early retirement to slash labor costs as travel demand cratered. Now lawmakers on Capitol Hill are proposing legislation to increase the retirement age for airline pilots from 65 to 67 to extend pilots’ flight time as the industry scrambles for solutions.

United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby told investors during an earnings call in April that the shortage could last for years.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

McCotter: Soulless Joe’s Cuba Sellout

 After spending over a half-century hobnobbing with his pals in the self-anointed ruling class, soulless Joe’s affinity is for the powerful not the powerless. This makes a great deal of sense, given his penchant for sending his troubled son (and bag man) to peddle influence with corrupt, oppressive regimes in return for “ten percent for the Big Guy.”  Soulless Joe’s concessions also serve the Left’s need to pretend Cuban Communism works.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Farah: We’ll find out this week if America still has its sovereignty

The vote on a provisional agenda item at the World Health Assembly in Geneva takes place in the next few days, during its meeting scheduled for May 22-28. The agenda is described by the WHO under the headline “Strengthening WHO preparedness for and response to health emergencies.” The new plan gives the global agency the power to unilaterally declare a health emergency in any country, thereby giving the WHO emergency powers. The Biden administration gave these proposed amendments to the WHO on Jan. 18, though no one knew of them until April 12. If passed, the resolutions will go into effect in November – just in time for the midterm elections.

Roche: Half of Joe Biden’s Twitter Followers Are Fake, Audit Reveals

Almost half of President Joe Biden‘s current 22.2 million followers on Twitter are fake accounts, according to an audit tool provided by software company SparkToro. SparkToro’s tool found that 49.3 percent of accounts following the official @POTUS Twitter account are “fake followers” based on analysis of a number of factors, including location issues, default profile images and new users. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is currently trying to buy Twitter, has expressed concerns about the number of fake accounts and a potential crack down could see users such as Biden lose a huge number of followers. […]  Musk, the world’s richest man, claimed that 20 percent of Twitter accounts were “fake/spam accounts” and that figure was “4 times what Twitter claims, could be *much* higher.” “My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk wrote. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

Shurk: Biden’s America Rots from the Head Down

When a man lacking the requisite character to hold great power is overwhelmed by his own moral turpitude, entire nations fall apart.  How quickly the mindless destruction of President Trump’s economic and immigration policies have thwarted an American middle class renaissance and set the country adrift on a downward spiral.  A Marxist, corporatist, globalist hydra-headed beast has broadsided the nation.  More than any other animating principle, Biden’s administration operates under petulancy, enraged that American citizens would have a reasonable desire to “Make America Great Again.”  The fact that MAGA policies were actually having their intended salubrious effect has pushed the “America Last” cabal into the kind of apoplexy required to witlessly unleash this bizarre and defeatist national self-immolation.  Welcome to Biden’s America, where everyone is imprisoned in a nightmare republic of financial insecurity, stagflation, crime, institutional corruption, and war.  If you don’t like the cultural wasteland outside your window, you’ll fall in love with the abundance of lost opportunities. What kind of damage do “America Last” policies inflict on the American people?

VDH: Joe Biden and Racial Demagoguery

Joe Biden has had a long history of racist outbursts. Can we even remember them all? The “put y’all back in chains” insults to an audience of black professionals, his dismissal of black interviewers variously as “you ain’t black” or ”junkie,” his he-man racialist Corn Pop mythologies, his recent condescending reference to a black professional as “boy,” and on and on. The Left has always contextualized his racial outbursts in the same fashion his decades-long creepy touching, sexual harassment, grabbing, and blowing into the hair and ears of young women and teens were always “just Joe being Joe.”  […] The Left in general and Biden in particular scan the daily news for opportunities for racial demagoguery. When black shooters try to gas and maim white commuters on the subway, or when there is an epidemic of anti-Asian hate crimes committed disproportionately by black males, or an unhinged Bernie Sanders activist attempts to murder House Republican leaders, the Left is silent or insists the hard ideology or racism the shooter embraces is either irrelevant or somehow a natural response to some sort of provocation. Again, it selectively sees or does not see connections between political discourse and crazy people who commit mass mayhem—depending entirely upon the political ore to be mined.

Nobel: The Democrat Playbook: How To Look Like You Are Fighting Inflation Without Really Trying

Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon in the sense that it is and can be produced only by a more rapid increase in the quantity of money than in output.”  Professor Milton Friedman You want to bring down inflation? Let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.  President Joe Biden Inflation is the relationship between the quantity of money in circulation and the supply of goods and services. Government and central banks can create money but they can’t create oil, copper, food, housing, hip surgeries, or Tootsie Rolls.  But government can create conditions that stifle the production of these things through taxation, regulation, import restrictions, and arbitrary credit restrictions. The basic rule in dealing with inflation, if you are a Democrat, is to blame everyone, and everything, for the price spiral.  Never look at your own insane monetary and fiscal policy.  Then, start tinkering with the economy to show that you care.

THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Revolver.news: “The Typhoid Mary of Disinformation”: Nicolle Wallace. Nobody Spreads it More Relentlessly.

The most blatant and shameless liars from the first term of the Bush/Cheney administration have, revealingly, enjoyed great success in media and journalism. That is because serial deceit is not a liability for a thriving career in corporate journalism but rather a vital asset — provided that the lies are in service of ruling class policies. Tawdry propagandists who helped drive post-9/11 America into a bottomless pit of lies and self-destruction have become the most highly-paid and beloved stars of liberal media. They include: Former Bush White House speechwriter David Frum of The Atlantic and CNN; Bush/Cheney CIA and NSA Director Gen. Michael Hayden of CNN; Ubiquitous amoral neocon warmonger Bill Kristol of MSNBC and various #NeverTrump groups; . . . […]  But few Bush-era propagandists have thrived more, made more money, and developed a more devoted and swooning liberal fan base than the official Communications Director of the Bush/Cheney White House and 2004 Bush/Cheney-reelection campaign, Nicolle Wallace. Having catapulted from her work as Jeb Bush’s Press Secretary to the White House to senior adviser to John McCain’s presidential campaign (working for her close friend, Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt, who recently performed one of the most public and sustained nervous breakdowns in the history of the internet), Wallace was always beloved by the DC press corps.

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: WOKE IDENTITY POLITICS

Gutknecht: The Day of Reckoning For Woke CEO’s is at Hand.

As one analyst put it, “Target didn’t just miss their quarterly numbers by a little, they missed them by A Lot!” That caused not only shares of Target stock to crater, it took the whole market with them. When the day’s bloodbath ended, hundreds of billions of net worth was gone. Our friends on the Left probably snickered that it serves the fat cat capitalists right. A little of their own medicine. They don’t understand (or care) that the losses come largely from IRA’s and 401K’s. Millions of hard working Americans, already buckling under the rising costs for food and fuel are now forced to watch their retirement savings shrink. Two questions come to mind. First, how could this be happening to such a wonderfully woke and socially conscious company like Target?  They were among the vanguard to open whatever rest room those patrons struggling with their sexual identities chose to use. Parents of small children be damned. When one of their stores was sacked and burned by mostly peaceful protesters following the death of George Floyd, they did the courageous thing. They turned the other check, pledging millions to BLM and other Social Justice causes. Management got a shot of feel-good endorphins. Shareholders got the bill.

Why would their customers turn on such an elite virtue signaler? […] The second question dovetails with the first. Why were the suits on Wall Street  . . .

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON WOMEN

Widburg: Yet another worm is turning, this time in the skateboarding world

A man who calls himself “Lillian Gallagher” was allowed to compete as a woman in the Red Bull Cornerstone Contest, which is a skateboarding contest with big cash prizes. When he won, he got the top step on the podium and $5,000. The woman who actually won the contest was told she came in second and received only $2,750. Outraged by the unfairness of being forced to compete against a mentally ill cheater, she protested the decision to let a man compete, only to be stonewalled. So now, bravely, she’s speaking out. The genuine woman who came in second place is Taylor Silverman. The events she describes took place last fall. Clearly, the matter has been niggling away at her since then, especially since Red Bull, which sponsors the competition, stonewalled her. Therefore, she took to Instagram to complain. Sullivan’s efforts to challenge the decision to force her and the other women to compete against a biological man began with a letter she sent to Red Bull after the competition: . . . […]  As one would expect, those who are so-called “transgenders” (a made-up identity to cover for a mental illness) heaped incredible abuse on Silverman for her completely logical claim that men and women should not compete against each other in physical contests. Here are three of the more polite aggressive attacks: . . .

Barkoukis: Attacks Against Musk Heat Up. Here’s How He Responded to the Latest Accusation.

Ever since Elon Musk bought Twitter, vowing to bring free speech back to the platform, the billionaire has warned that attacks against him will only increase. After a pathetic attempt at a hit piece by The New York Times over his childhood in South Africa, Business Insider is now running with a story about a sexual misconduct claim against Musk. SpaceX, the aerospace firm founded by Elon Musk, the world’s wealthiest man, paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against Musk in 2018, Insider has learned. The attendant worked as a member of the cabin crew on a contract basis for SpaceX’s corporate jet fleet. She accused Musk of . . . […]  But I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened. [NOTE: […] The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro responded to the story by writing: “That amount of money for a settlement of this sort is absolutely de minimis, and everyone who understands corporate law knows this.” “In other words, when you sue one of the most valuable people on earth and get a settlement of $250,000, that’s nearly always just the guy getting rid of something he considers a nuisance, not an admission of guilt,” Shapiro added.]

PEACEFULLY & PATRIOTICALLY HAVE YOUR VOICES HEARD

Unruh: Worker fired for protesting rainbow image, now all hell breaks loose

A lawsuit has been filed against a company with operations in Iowa after officials there fired an employee who responded to a company campaign to promote the LGBT agenda, using a rainbow logo, by calling that an “abomination.” The Thomas More Society said the lawsuit charges religious discrimination by Arconic, a global corporation with headquarters in Pittsburgh and operations in Riverdale, Iowa. The legal team explained the company fired Daniel Snyder, in June 2021, from his position as lead operator at the lightweight metal engineering and manufacturing plant “based on a single religious comment he made in attempting to respond to an anonymous company survey.” […] The company claimed Snyder violated its “diversity” schemes, but McHale noted the irony in that, “It is Arconic that is refusing to respect the diversity of Mr. Snyder’s beliefs or to acknowledge that he was offended by the company’s choice to co-opt the rainbow to promote same-sex marriage and gender ideology.”

Victoria LaCivita, spokeswoman for state Attorney General Jason Miyares, called the injunction a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Caldwell: California Church Shooter Has Chinese Communist Party Ties

The shooter who targeted Taiwanese congregants at a Southern California church is associated with a group tied to the Chinese Communist Party that calls for China’s takeover of Taiwan, Radio Free Asia reported. David Chou, a 68-year-old Chinese immigrant who on Sunday killed one congregant and wounded five others at Geneva Presbyterian Church before being subdued by parishioners, in 2019 participated in an event hosted by the Las Vegas Association for China’s Peaceful Unification. The group is controlled by the Communist Party’s United Front Work Department and argues that “peaceful unification” between China and Taiwan “is the only way to avoid war.”

Law of Markets:  The election result in Australia was just about as bad as it could have been

Give the people what they want, good and hard”. It’s a philosophy, I suppose, but not so good for those who didn’t want whatever it is that actually gets served up. So now Australia joins the Biden-Trudeau-Adern club of Mencken’s worst nightmare societies. I am still a bit shell shocked from the outcome, not that I am all that surprised, so rather than say what I think, I will take a pair of comments from a previous post and then go read the papers – or at least do the crossword puzzle. First from Another Ian who quotes from JoNova.

“To be the first trans woman competing in surfing hasn’t been an easy ride emotionally but the amount of support I’ve been showed has been phenomenal.” Surfing’s first competitive transsexual surfer Sasha Jane Lowerson has continued her dream run through the women’s division of the Western Australian longboard titles, winning the open gal’s crown easily. In the final, Lowerson, a forty-three-year-old strawberry blonde who has ridden “stupidly big Waimea” and who won the male division of the WA longboard titles in 2019 as Ryan Egan (whom Lowerson talks about in the podcast below) before transitioning, combo-ed one surfer, the other three gals needed nine-pluses to win.

Are you fed up? Are you worried that America in rapidly sliding into a neo-Marxist state by the radical left in control of Washington with historically narrow majorities in the U.S. House and Senate and an Executive controlled by unnamed far leftists in place of a clinically incompetent President Biden? They are desperate to keep power and complete their radical progressive agenda that will change America and our liberty forever.

Americans just witnessed the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 without one Republican vote in the U.S. Senate and House (just as Obamacare was passed in 2010). The IRS  will be hiring 87,000 new agents, many armed, to terrorize American taxpayers.

Americans witnessed the FBI raid at the Trump Mar-A-Lago home and property of President Trump, truly a first in all of American history. We know what that is about. 

It is undeniable that the Democrat Party and the administrative state (the executive branches of the DOJ, FBI, IRS, et al) are clear and present dangers to our Republic and our liberty as they increasingly veer further away from the rule of law and the Constitution. What is the solution? At this critical juncture, there is only one action we can all take.

The only viable and timely solution at this critical point is to vote – yes, vote correctly and smartly to retake the U.S. House and Senate on November 8th and to prepare the way to retake the White House in two years. Vote and help everyone you know to vote. Please click the TAKE ACTION link below – we must vote correctly and in great numbers to be sure our votes are counted to diminish the potential for the left to rig and steal the midterms and the 2024 elections as they are clearly intending to do after their success in 2020.
