NOTABLE QUOTES

Abraham Lincoln 16th  president of the United States:Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws, let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor;–let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the character of his own, and his children’s liberty. Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap–let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs;–let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; . . .

Scott Adams cartoonist, creator of Dilbert, tweeted:So far, Trump’s second term has been a huge success. He has several major SCOTUS victories, looks better than ever compared to Biden, and the Jan6 theater just went full Jussie. You can’t win harder than that.

Parker contributor to American Thinker: Anti-liberty leftists have an oddly different worldview than normal people, especially when it comes to problems and crises they’ve caused.  They see these as just a means to gain power and screw things up so they can rush in, seize more power and screw things up even more in a never-ending cycle of failure.

Curtis Hill contributor to The Federalist: Unborn black babies are aborted at the same disproportionate rate as black men are incarcerated in the United States. Black Americans make up 13 percent of the U.S. population while comprising about 38 percent of the prison population, fueling the argument by leftists that the criminal justice system is inherently unfair to blacks. Yet black babies are aborted at more than three times the rate of white babies and constitute more than one-third of all abortions (38 percent), and their deaths are defended by leading leftists who claim to be champions for women and blacks, like Michelle Obama.

Mark Malvasi contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Nearly seventy years after the publication of Romano Guardini’s “The End of the Modern World,” the rot has advanced too far to entertain any serious prospect of restoring a Christian social order in which, as Guardini insisted, “faith will maintain itself against animosity and danger” and “man’s obedience to God will assert itself with a new power.” How many persons in the West, and even in the United States, are in their hearts still Christian?

Mark Malvasi contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: Even were modern man to survive his own aspirations, he would sacrifice his humanity. Anonymous, absorbed by technology, Guardini anticipated the emergence of a new type of human being that was defined by regimentation and conformity. This “man without personality” would make no effort to assert his identity or to achieve individual excellence, two of the hallmarks of the Modern Age. Rather, the post-modern individual would disappear into the collective, ceasing to exist as a person and becoming a biological, sociological, economic, political, and psychological abstraction.

Kevin Roberts President of Heritage Foundation: “This victory is not the end of the pro-life cause, but a new beginning. Now is the time for state lawmakers to protect life, which begins at conception. Congress also has an obligation at the federal level to protect the unborn. Those who seek parity with nations like North Korea and China and want to keep abortion on demand legal up until birth will fight tooth-and-nail to protect this vile practice. “Going forward, pro-life Americans will need to hold policymakers accountable for protecting unborn children and their parents through policies that are rooted in sound ethics and science. Children in the womb have fingerprints and feel pain—their beating hearts should never be silenced.  “We must revitalize a culture of life in America that will provide loving options and support to parents, and ultimately make abortion unthinkable.”

THE GREAT GLOBAL RESET

Foster, Frijters, & Baker: A New Western Religion Takes Shape

ADVERTISEMENT

Leaders in the West have been very busy these last 12 months setting up international institutions, regulations and technologies that legitimise, formalise and entrench the powers they have gained during lockdowns. They’ve got their central banks devising protocols for implementing new digital currencies that simplify surveillance of their populations’ financial transactions; vaccine-based ID systems (such as the EU’s digital Covid Certificate, the Hong Kong Health Code and Australia’s Digital Passenger Declaration) that make tracking individuals across and within countries easier; and CO2 budgets and social credit systems that can be used to adjudicate who is worthy of travel and a reasonable standard of living, and who is not. Western politicians went way out on a limb during the covid period in suspending normal liberties and controlling people’s daily lives. Their authoritarianism was so extreme that, in retrospect, its legitimacy needed to be cemented in Western eyes via a permanent set of internationally coordinated command-and-control structures. These would provide a bulwark against challenges in and out of court, protecting the backsides of covid-era politicians and also furthering their careers: their reelection prospects will improve because voters are more likely to keep swallowing the ideological sales pitch if it is seen to be supported by a global consensus. The new global institutions, politicians hope, will assist in ensuring the flock remains deeply obedient to their leaders, is preoccupied with self-loathing, and continues to be wary of any fellow man with whom they might have organised resistance. […]  To set up a new religion, you first need an appealing ideological story. Then you need a priesthood. Third, you need suitable headquarters for the papacy. The first two have been easy, but the third is proving a sticking point. Let’s see where we are with each of these three.

THE ADMINSTRATIVE STATE: ANTI US CONSTITUTION

Jefrrey A. Tucker: What If People Actually Controlled the Government?

Imagine, if you will, the following system.  Government is managed by elected representatives who are in turn elected by the people. Government is further restrained by checks and balances between three branches, each of which is accountable ultimately to the people who live under the laws. Unlike the ancient system of government in which the only people who were truly free were the aristocracy, under this new system, every adult citizen has political rights. No one rules over anyone without accountability. Also part of this, no one in government has a permanent job that is exempt from oversight. The laws and rules under which people live are not invented by faceless bureaucrats but rather by representatives with names who can be voted out. In that way, we give the idea of freedom the best-possible hope. Sounds dreamy? A bit. We haven’t had that system in the US for a very long time, even if what I just mapped out seems more or less like what the US Constitution set up. There are two main reasons why we are so far from that ideal. First, the US system was supposed to exalt the juridical sovereignty of the “several states” so that the central government was of secondary importance.  Second, a fourth branch of government gradually came into existence. It is what we now call the administrative state. It consists of millions of employees with maximum power who answer to absolutely no one. The Federal Register lists 432 agencies that currently employ people who are beyond legislative reach but they still make policy and determine the structure of the regime under which we live. But we the people have no real control over them.  Not even the president can control them.

Margolis: Another J6 Trump ‘Bombshell’ Outed as a Hoax!

On Tuesday, the liberal media soiled themselves over the so-called bombshell story that on January 6, 2021, President Trump grabbed the steering wheel of the presidential limo and then lunged at a Secret Service agent because he wanted to join the protesters at the Capitol. The story came courtesy of Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows. “So when the president had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby, he thought that they were going up to the Capitol. And when Bobby had relayed to him, ‘We’re not, we don’t have the assets to do it, it’s not secure, we’re going back to the West Wing,’ the president had a very strong and very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate. The president said to him something to the effect of, ‘I’m the f—ing president, take me up to the Capitol now.’ To which Bobby responded, ‘Sir, we have to go back to the West Wing.’ He then reached up front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm, he said, ‘Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We’re going back to the West Wing, we’re not going to the Capitol.’ Mr. Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby Engel.”

Any reasonable person would conclude this story was dubious.  […]  Soon after Alexander revealed that his sources challenged the story, Hutchinson’s lawyer, Jody Hunt, quickly attempted to walk back her testimony.

Saavedra: Top Former White House Lawyer Delivers Devastating Blow To Cassidy Hutchinson Testimony

Former Trump White House lawyer Eric Herschmann delivered a damaging blow to Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony against former President Donald Trump on Tuesday as he claims that he wrote the handwritten note that Hutchinson told the January 6 House select committee that she wrote.

The note that Hutchinson claims that she wrote stated, “Anyone who entered the Capitol without proper authority should leave immediately.” “Herschmann is claiming that a handwritten note regarding a potential statement for then-President Donald Trump to release during the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was written by him during a meeting at the White House that afternoon, and not by White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson,” ABC News reported. “At Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearing, Rep. Liz Cheney displayed a handwritten note which Hutchinson testified she wrote after Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows handed her a note card and pen to take his dictation.”

U.S. SUPREME COURT

Spencer: Justice Thomas Wants to End Media’s Ability ‘to Cast False Aspersions on Public Figures’

The Left is a big club, and you’re not in it. Leftists play a game that works this way: the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), one of their primary attack machines, publishes a report purporting to demonstrate that some conservative group or other is a “hate group.” This allegedly objective study is generally a tissue of innuendo, misrepresentations, and outright lies. But nevertheless, leading corporations then cite the SPLC’s study as justification for barring the abhorrent hate group from their various services. […]  This game has worked for years, with cowardly conservatives playing along and accepting the ostracism of some foremost voices of dissent from the Leftist agenda. But Justice Clarence Thomas on Monday declared that it is high time that this sinister game comes to an end. Thomas dissented from the Court’s denial of a petition for a writ of certiorari in the case of Coral Ridge Ministries Media Inc. v. Southern Poverty Law Center, and it’s a shame that his remarks are in a dissenting opinion on a case the Court declined to hear rather than a majority opinion striking against the SPLC, as the Leftist beast will never be vanquished as long as the SPLC’s wholly unjustified status as an impartial arbiter of what does and does not constitute “hate” that is beyond the pale of acceptable discourse remains unchallenged.

Taft: Why Hasn’t the Supreme Court Leaker Been Named, Shamed, and Disbarred?

OK, where’s the leaker? The leaker who launched a thousand riots, protests, and multiple insurrections, prompted the firebombing of pro-life clinics, inspired a Supreme Court justice assassination attempt, and emboldened the stalking of justices is nowhere to be found.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING MEDICAL SCIENCE

Siglaugsson: The Normalization of Dishonesty in Medical Science

I subscribe to a publication called MedpageToday, which is an excellent way to follow what is going on in the mainstream medical discussion, and not least to better understand what is wrong with it. This week they published a piece on the benefits to infants from maternal vaccination, reported  in the  study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on June 22nd. In the introduction, the study authors make the following claim: “Infants younger than 6 months of age are at high risk for complications of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19)”  This came as a surprise, so I checked the source they quote in support of this statement. In short, the source tells us nothing about risk of hospitalization. All it tells us is the number of hospitalized infants over time per 100,000 in the population, which shows that early January this year, during a surge of Omicron infections, there was of course also a surge in hospitalizations; if we look at the general trends we see this in all age-groups.  This has nothing to do with hospitalization risk at all. […]  Do they in fact understand, but choose to ignore or distort the facts to please their peers and superiors, trusting in the safety of numbers? Has dishonesty become normalized now in medical science?

Alexander: Unvaccinated baby who was initially DENIED a new heart because his evangelical parents refused to get him jabbed is finally approved for the transplant: Medical ethics expert says doctor was playing ‘COVID politics’ with decision

A six-month-old baby in Tennessee with a heart defect has finally been added to the waiting list for a transplant, after his evangelical parents claimed their doctor told them their child had to be vaccinated first. August Stoll was born in December, and his heart defect was diagnosed when he was 13 days old.

He has spent much of his young life in Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville, and in June had heart surgery but his parents were told he would need a transplant. ‘The transplant team (specifically Dr. David Bearl) gave us an ultimatum that if we did not give August a series of vaccines, he would keep him off the transplant list,’ wrote his mother Hannah Stoll on June 24, on the website Tennessee Stands, a libertarian and religious organization. ‘He specifically used the phrase, ‘I am mandating,’ about eight times during our first conversation about this.’ […]  ‘I believe loading his body on these [vaccines] will kill him. I believe it is within my rights as a parent to choose this for him. I believe that this doctor holding this over us is motivated by ego.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Fu: Chinese Regime Killed Falun Gong Adherent for His Liver, Witness Says

A former Japanese criminal gang member says he was a witness of China’s live organ trade, having seen an anesthetized Falun Gong adherent—with tendons cut to prevent his flight—shortly before the man was placed on an operating table to have his liver carved out.  That was in August 2008, when Ushio Sugawara, now 58, was still a member of the Sixth Yamaguchi-gumi—Japan’s largest crime syndicate. He left the gang in 2015 and is now an economic commentator in Japan. His friend’s brother was desperate for a new liver to sustain his life. With strict regulations, high costs, and long waiting times in the United States and France—two of the few countries offering liver transplant surgeries at the time—the struggling patient turned to what appeared to be his only alternative: China. At the time, Beijing’s General Hospital of the Armed Police Forces, a state-run military hospital, had risen to become a national leader in liver transplant surgery. A Chinese broker who facilitated medical tourism with Japan put the brother in touch with the Beijing hospital. Within a month, they had a suitable donor, telling the patient to fly over for surgery “anytime.” The price was 30 million yen (roughly $255,000)—not even half the cost of what they’d been told in the United States and France. […]  The day before the scheduled surgery, Sugawara visited the patient and learned that the donor was in the next room. “Would you like to have a look?” suggested a Chinese doctor fluent in Japanese, drawing back the curtain to reveal a 21-year-old man. The man was unresponsive due to being anesthetized. […]  Concerns that the regime may have been harvesting organs for profit first surfaced in 2006. Multiple whistleblowers that year approached The Epoch Times offering testimony about the illicit practice. Annie (a pseudonym), who worked at a Chinese hospital in northeastern China, said that her ex-husband, who was a brain surgeon at the same facility, and other doctors removed corneas and other organs from living Falun Gong practitioners before throwing the bodies into incinerators, sometimes while they were still alive.

The Heartland Institute: The White House’s Secret Meetings With BlackRock Are a Major Threat to Freedom

BlackRock controls more assets than any other investment management firm on Wall Street, with about $10 trillion now under management. (Yes, that’s “trillion” with a “t.”) BlackRock has used much of this wealth to seize control of sizeable minority stakes in numerous publicly traded companies, making BlackRock and its CEO, Larry Fink, the most powerful forces in corporate America. When BlackRock and Fink speak, Wall Street listens. There is emerging evidence, however, that BlackRock’s influence is not limited to the corporate and financial spheres. After years of building political alliances and making a laundry list of strategic hires, BlackRock has managed to amass huge amounts of political clout within the Biden administration and U.S. Federal Reserve, allowing them to develop unprecedented strategic partnerships and, according to our new research, gain access to officials in the White House. Earlier in June, we conducted a detailed analysis of key players at BlackRock and their potential relationships with figures within the Biden administration. Our most important finding reveals that a top executive at BlackRock’s Investment Institute not only has deeply personal ties to White House staff, he has also frequently visited the White House, participating in closed-door meetings with staff from the Office of Cabinet Affairs and the National Security Council.

Stein: Energy Shortages and Inflation The New Norm as Refinery Closures Outpace Construction

Editors’ Note: Progressives have played a coy game. As they over-regulate the energy business, denigrate the industry, have their allies in the environmental organization tie the industry up with lawsuits, and deny capital for expansion with their friends in the ESG movement; they grin like the proverbial Cheshire cat when energy costs soar far faster than the general rate of inflation. Grinning through their teeth they blame the industry, blame Putin, and blame us for wanting reasonably priced oil and gas. But you can’t shut down capacity as demand is expanding and expect lower prices. That defies all economic logic. […] There were almost 700 oil refineries in the world as of January 2020, but as a result of continuous over regulations, permitting delays, aging equipment,  and the worldwide support of the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) to divest in fossil fuels, the right operating model and level of integration will be crucial for survival and sustained profitability of refineries. In 2019 there were 135 refineries in the U.S.  but five facilities were shuttered during the last two years.

Owermohle & Gardner: HHS launches website in wake of Supreme Court abortion decision

The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday launched a website to help people find contraceptives and abortion servicesamid complaints from progressive Democrats in Congress that the administration was caught flat-footed by the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. The website, Reproductiverights.gov, lays out patients’ rights to contraception and shares links to abortion options — many of the resources already provided on the websites of abortion advocates and women’s health clinics. HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said that he is directing his department’s Office for Civil Rights to ensure patient privacy for those seeking reproductive health care, and that he is taking steps to increase access to Food and Drug Administration-approved abortifacients though he did not provide many specifics on how that would be achieved.

DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ANTI-POLICE  ANTI-VICTIM  PRO-CRIMINAL

Downey Jr.: Drug Dealers Caught with Enough Fentanyl to Kill Millions Spend Two Days in Jail: Thank You, Democrats!

If you’re going to get arrested, do it in California. Two drug dealers were arrested by California Highway Patrol (CHP) with 150,000 fentanyl pills, enough to kill roughly two million Americans. Where are they today? No one knows. They were set free two days later by a California judge. Benito Madrigal, 19, and Jose Zendejas, 25, were pulled over during a routine traffic stop that resulted in the cops finding 150 packages containing 1,000 fentanyl pills each. Each pill sells for $5, which works out to $750,000 worth of the deadly drugs. They were booked into the Tulare County jail. That’s where things went wonky.

How can drug dealers with enough fentanyl to kill a couple million Americans walk out of jail? A memo from the Tulare County Sherrif’s office explains the nonsense.

THE FEMINIST LED WAR ON WOMEN

Prager: Dobbs May Force Young Women to Confront Sexual Reality

Thanks to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, young women are confronting some basic truths about men and women that feminism has denied for the last half-century. Like other left-wing movements, feminism is based on a denial of reality (or, if you prefer, on lies). The best-known example is the feminist insistence that, except for physical differences, men and women are basically the same. This includes the central feminist belief about men’s and women’s sexual natures. For half a century, women have been told that their sexual nature is no different from male sexual nature—just as men can enjoy sex with no commitment and even anonymous sex, so can women. Women, feminism insisted, have been socialized into believing such sex does not accord with their nature. Who’d have predicted that a Supreme Court decision would force young women to confront sexual reality? But it seems that the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has done just that. For example, . . . […]  Brainwashing women into believing that their sexual nature is no different from men’s only benefited men. The hookup culture only benefited men. […]  Turns out that abortion is many men’s best friend.

EDUCATION

Troutman: Arizona Opens Up School Choice to All Children

The bill, which allows Arizona families to take their children out of public school and puts public funds into Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, also known as education savings accounts (ESAs), that families can use for homeschooling or private-school tuition, last week passed the state House and Senate. Governor Doug Ducey (R.) has said he will sign the bill, which will expand the number of students who can use savings accounts from 10,000 to more than 1 million. As the program stands now, only students who are disabled, in failing schools, or in military families can access the savings accounts.

“This legislation is the most robust expansion of educational freedom in the nation,” Goldwater Institute director of education policy Matt Beienburg told the Washington Free Beacon. “It guarantees every Arizona student, whether they are coming from public school, private school, or homeschooling, the opportunity to join the ESA program and receive their share of state funding to pursue any educational opportunity that best needs their needs.”

Hill: The Real Reasons Government Schools Are Evil

The state can only have a coercive monopoly on education and, a fortiori, enforce doctrinal ideas on children if a basic idea is left unchallenged in our society. The idea is that we are responsible for the procreative choices that other people make. This idea codified into a principle results in the fiscal enslavement of people into supporting the reproductive choices others made for themselves which they then penalize others for as a natural right. Public education is tax-funded education, which means that parents are made to understand that they are not responsible for educating their own children. Society as a whole shall assume the responsibility of paying for the education of your children. Why not pay for their cribs, diapers and birthday cakes? Why specifically should we support the reproductive choices others have made in the educational realm? […]  When individuals decide to cut through the moral morass and identify the unnamed principle that justifies public education, then we will have a wholesale rejection of government schools—and much of the welfare state in general. To announce to all persons that when they decide to have a child, they and they alone are responsible for the entire upkeep and support of that child, and that there is no sustainable moral principle that could secure societal support of everyone’s procreative choices is a daring moral act. If some people believe they are their brother’s keeper—a principle that if taken to its logical terminus and applied consistently would leave a human being financially bereft and physically depleted—then they are free to be their brother’s keeper. However, a personal or religious belief as such ought never be elevated to the level of public policy.

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS 

Secret Agenda: Watergate, Deep Throat, and the CIA by Jim Hougan

Rosen: Watergate at 50: Revelations From Newly Declassified Evidence

When Secret Agenda: Watergate, Deep Throat and the CIA was first published by Random House in November 1984 – more than a decade after the resignation and pardon of Richard Nixon – it presented such a large volume of new and revelatory information about a subject so widely considered exhausted that the book was greeted with the staggered astonishment typically reserved for apparitions. “If even half of this is true,” wrote J. Anthony Lukas in the New York Times Book Review, “Secret Agenda will add an important new dimension to our understanding of Watergate.” Lukas’ was an important voice. A Pulitzer Prize-winner, he had covered Watergate for the New York Times Magazine and wrote Nightmare: The Underside of the Nixon Years in 1976. This critically acclaimed book was the first comprehensive account of Watergate. “But,” Lukas added, “it may be months before reporters can sort through this material, check Mr. Hougan’s sources and decide which of these revelations is solid gold, which dross.” Now, 40 years after Secret Agenda appeared, the verdict is in. While some of Hougan’s analytic conclusions have come under challenge – including by me, an avowed acolyte of the author – the wealth of new facts and documentation he presented has stood the test of time. Where once it seemed impossible to reckon with the contribution Secret Agenda made to Watergate, it is now impossible to reckon with Watergate, even after the release of thousands more tapes and documents, without reference to Hougan. Introducing his findings, Hougan described Secret Agenda as “an attempt to correct the record … and to suggest avenues of further investigation.” Several authors over the ensuing decades, including me, took him up on that challenge, and a couple of epic lawsuits unfolded, with the result that the book’s central thrusts were only strengthened.

But the only things we know for certain are that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) lied to entrap Fortenberry, and used two men who broke campaign finance laws to betray the congressman in his zeal to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

 I & I Editorial Board: Beware America, Gavin Newsom Is Running For President

How can the governor of the state that is “home” to almost 30% of the country’s homeless yet makes up only 12% of the U.S. population, who has watched over his state’s decline in so many areas, be a credible candidate for president? Furthering Newsom’s disqualifications is his “education” from the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders program, which is not as benign as its name suggests. The WEF is, of course, an anti-capitalist organization that is working to “reset” – meaning wreck – liberal economies because its leaders believe free markets are unsustainable. Its founder, Klaus Schwab, provided even greater insight into the plan when he wrote that the COVID-19 pandemic is an “unprecedented opportunity to reimagine our world.”

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.
