Andrea Widburg contributor to American Thinker: Biden, 79, got diagnosed with COVID, took Paxlovid and, miracle of miracles, recovered at warp speed. Now, though, he’s been diagnosed a second time with COVID, and it turns out that the Paxlovid is anything but a miracle pill. It seems to be yet another in a long line now of medicines that don’t live up to the hype.
Daniel Oliver contributor to American Greatness: Biden is incompetent and really always has been. And the crowd that put him in office knew that during the campaign. And yet—and yet—they were willing to foist this incompetent old man on the country! If that isn’t wicked, what is?
J.B. Shurk contributor to Gatestone Institute: It has become rather common for European and American politicians to divide the world between “democratic” and “authoritarian” nations, the former described as possessing inherent goodness and the latter declaimed as threatening the planet’s very existence. Of course, after two-plus years of COVID-19-related mask, vaccine and travel mandates, often imposed in the West through unilateral executive or administrative action — and not through legislative will or public referendum — it is somewhat difficult to assert that democratic nations are free from authoritarian impulse.
Thaddeus G. McCotter contributor to American Greatness: The Left and its American commissars have as their immediate aim the closing of the American mind. Their ultimate aim is the cancellation of our free republic.
Ken Langone co-founder of Home Depot: “We can agree to one thing. The economy is receding. It’s going down. Now, you want to call it a recession or not – play with the words. But the fact of the matter is, the economy is going down. Every place I’m looking, I’m seeing signs of pullback. … This is serious stuff. And we are in a recession.”
Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: People often wonder why few solutions are presented for the significant challenges we face. Perhaps it is worth reminding everyone what the biggest challenge really is, and it has nothing to do with Joe Biden or our political system abusers. The biggest problem we face as a nation is our unwillingness to admit our current condition is the result of purposeful action.
Kimball: Trump Stays in the Picture
For some time now, Michael Anton has been saying that the Establishment—Democrats tout court, of course, but also large swaths of the testosterone-challenged GOP—are dead set against allowing Donald Trump to run for president again. It’s been obvious from its beginnings that the January 6 committee—an illegally constituted kangaroo court—was interested in one thing and one thing only: eliminating Trump and his followers from the metabolism of American political life. The fact that its public face is Liz Cheney, a soon-to-be cashiered anti-Trump RINO, underscores Anton’s point, or part of it. It’s not just the Democrats who cannot countenance Trump. It is the entire certified political class, what Anton calls the bureaucratic “uniparty” that runs the government and maintains the Overton Window that determines what is and what is not acceptable in the political life of the country. Donald Trump is not in the picture frame. Another data point: just Friday, the New York Times gleefully reported that Fox News—Fox!—had also cut the former president loose. Apparently, he hasn’t appeared on the network since April. The Times noted that other mouthpieces of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire— . . .
THE GREAT GLOBAL RESET
Shurk: Fighting the Great Reset One Inch at a Time
This fight against Great Reset communism is a struggle that many Americans did not see coming. As such, they’re just now “awakening” to the massive globalist threat of the World Economic Forum’s planned New World Order. They went to bed one night believing that most Americans shared a common sense of values, an appreciation for American history, and a patriotic dedication to liberty and freedom. They rose in the morning to discover that their Founding Fathers were now considered racist; their education system could no longer distinguish boys from girls; the national security surveillance state monitored all their moves; and socialism had taken over the free market economy under the guises of central bank money-printing, unsustainable government spending, ESG manipulation of stocks, racial redistribution programs, COVID-1984 fear campaigns, and apocalyptic tales of “climate change.” The barrage of so many crises at once is alarming. It is also intentional. Sowing rampant doubt and uncertainty among a population creates opportunity for any hostile force. A disoriented and fractured society is a society ripe for conquering. Before every great invasion, target nations are first pounded with a cacophony of cannon blasts and blinded with a curtain of sulfuric smoke to create confusion, crumble defenses, and cripple resolve. That’s what we have today.

TRANSHUMANISM: HUMAN 2.0
Allen: Jab 2.0 for Humanity 2.0 – Hurtling Down the AI-to-Vaxx Pipeline
Artificial intelligence is pulling new vaccines out of the Platonic realm. Automated labs are on standby, prepared to crank out alien strands of mRNA and pack them into toxic nanoparticles. A billion empty syringes are waiting on shelves. This is not science fiction. These jabs will be on the market before you can say “boostah.” Google. Moderna. Microsoft. They’re all racing to the edge. This is corporate transhumanism in all its avaricious glory, riding waves of propaganda and channeled by the biosecurity state. These people uphold a new mythos whose axis mundi is the Machine. In their world, digital minds are “dreaming up” novel genetic configurations. Biological systems are treated as “living software.” With each technical advance, their myths bleed into our reality. A 2019 white paper from Policy Horizons Canada Horizons describes this shift as a “biodigital convergence,” characterized by: . . . […] It’s fitting that Moderna’s mRNA vaxx was initially funded with $20 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2016. Microsoft’s founder is all about operating systems and viruses and sci-fi swindles. Consider his endless vaccine initiatives—or the Epstein flight logs. It seems like Bill would jab anything that moves, no matter how innocent. […] Call me “phobic” all you want—I’m not down with getting penetrated by Big Pharma. I don’t want my veins clotting up with “information therapy.” I don’t trust these people and I don’t trust their calculations. Not unless they’re counting money. Think about when your web-browser crashes, or your Internet goes down. Now imagine that happening to your immune system. Imagine your heart doing an automatic reboot. It ain’t easy being a caveman, but it’s preferable to whatever Big Tech and Big Pharma have conspired to turn us into. We are not machines to be reprogrammed. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. More than likely, they’re just paid to say so.
Conradson: UPDATE: Withheld Records Reveal 19,000 Mail-In Ballots Illegally Received AFTER Deadline in Maricopa County 2020 Election
A Maricopa County 2020 election report from Verity Vote used public records requests to discover that more than 20,000 ballots were illegally counted. Arizona’s 2020 Presidential Election was decided by less than 10,500 votes. […] This can be explained by Dinesh D’Souza and True the Vote’s “2000 Mules” investigation, which discovered a nationwide ballot trafficking ring that was used to steal the 2020 Election through unsecured dropboxes. The film explains how the ballot Mules created a large influx of late-early ballots to overwhelm the system and rush ballots through the counting process.
2022 MIDTERM WYOMING ELECTION
(H/T MJ) Big Horn Radio Network: HARRIET HAGEMAN DEFENDS HER RECORD ON WYOMING’S WATER IN EXCLUSIVE OP-ED
Former President Donald Trump’s endorsement of Hageman has highlighted important differences between Hageman and Cheney. These differences have only widened with Cheney serving as the vice chair of the House select committee investigating the events of January 6th. Wyoming State Senator Anthony Bouchard is also running for Wyoming’s House seat. Recently, Mr. Bouchard leveled serious allegations against Hageman. Bouchard claims Hageman lied about her involvement in a regional watershed supply project that evaluated a “diversion of water” from the Green River Basin. […] Now, in an exclusive op-ed for KODI Radio, Hageman is responding to “unfounded accusations” in TV ads—in addition to Bouchard’s allegations—that suggest Hageman previously sought to give away Wyoming’s water to Colorado. Below is Hageman’s op-ed: Desperation Leads to Lies: My Record on Protecting Wyoming’s Water
The rumor-mill has now gone public, with unfounded accusations being turned into a slick TV advertisement paid for by an outside group that apparently can’t stand the thought that Wyoming will hold Liz Cheney accountable for her betrayal of our great State, and her obsession with destroying President Trump. In their desperation to find some way to attack me, they are pushing the narrative that I have somehow “put Wyoming last,” and implying that I previously sought to give Wyoming’s water to Colorado. The people behind this TV ad apparently don’t understand that we don’t tolerate liars in Wyoming, nor do we countenance those who do. […] Background and Water History I was hired by the State of Wyoming in 1997 as one of the lead trial attorneys on Nebraska v. Wyoming, the dispute over the North Platte River. I have since spent the last twenty-five years fighting to protect Wyoming’s water rights, to enforce our water laws, to ensure that our water right holders are able to access and use their property rights, to work with our municipalities on long-term water planning, to preserve our farming and ranching heritage, and to enforce Wyoming’s entitlements under the various interstate Compacts and Decrees to which we are parties. […] Which brings me to the 1922 Colorado River Compact.
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF INJUSTICE
Kelly: As New Trial Looms, Justice Department Silent on Whitmer Plot
or the first time since the government failed to win a single conviction in the alleged criminal plot to “kidnap” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, a top Justice Department official was publicly confronted about the FBI’s primary role in concocting the hoax. It was not a welcome line of inquiry, to say the least. Matthew Olsen, head of the National Security Division, repeatedly rebuffed questions by U.S. Representative Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) about the case during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday. A Michigan jury in April acquitted two men charged with conspiring to kidnap Whitmer after defense attorneys successfully argued their clients had been entrapped by the FBI; the jury deadlocked on two other defendants. Shortly after the stunning verdicts were handed down in what the Justice Department considers one of its most prominent “domestic terror” investigations in recent history, prosecutors announced they would retry Barry Croft and Adam Fox, the alleged ringleader of the group. […] . . . not only was Whitmer never in danger—she knew about the plan weeks if not months before the alleged kidnappers were arrested. The Justice Department faces a steeper climb in the new trial as it must prove a kidnapping “conspiracy” with two fewer conspirators.
Showalter: Why is the CDC shelling out $55,000 on credibility training for Dr. Rochelle Walensky?
Apparently, Centers for Disease Control director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has been embarrassing the Biden administration. As if such a thing were possible. According to Politico: The Biden administration spent $25,750 and authorized an additional $30,500 for media training and executive coaching for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ROCHELLE WALENSKY, according to internal CDC expense authorization filings obtained by West Wing Playbook. […] . . . leave it to the Biden administration to blame “messaging” instead of policy for the blunders, we can see that all through the Biden administration — from Joe’s gaffes and persistent whinings that he doesn’t get the credit he thinks he deserves, to the out-of-control clownery of Kamala Harris, along with many, many more instances. It’s always a messaging problem with these people, never a policy problem. They seem to think the public is stupid and can be made to believe that $5.00 a gallon gas isn’t so bad given that it was $5.20 a week earlier, or that inflation is fine here given that it’s worse in other countries (which is only a few of them). Bad messaging, though, is big bucks for certain political animals. The characters chosen to coach Walensky weren’t plain-vanilla pros at this “art,” but Clinton political operatives, . . .

Weissberg: When Public Health Goes Woke
Unfortunately, the public health profession, like so many of our once effective institutions, has gone woke and may even be promoting death. Social justice has replaced sound medicine as if pathologies of the body can be cured by eliminating sexism, racism, homophobia, and all the rest. The profession has slipped into the La-La land where ideology trumps plain-to-see reality. The current brouhaha over monkeypox illustrates this transformation.

Le Mahieu: Health Care System To Pay Over $10 Million To Workers Who Sued Over Vaccine Mandate, Lawyers Announce
Lawyers for 500 health care workers who sued a hospital system over a COVID vaccine mandate said Friday that the workers had settled for over $10 million. The workers, who alleged discrimination, had been denied religious exemptions from the NorthShore University Health Care System vaccine mandate.
“As a result of the settlement, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 to compensate these health care employees who were victims of religious discrimination, and who were punished for their religious beliefs against taking an injection associated with aborted fetal cells,” Liberty Counsel, which represented the former and current workers, announced.
THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON CHILDREN
Rufo: IN PORTLAND, THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION STARTS IN KINDERGARTEN
Portland Public Schools has launched a war against the “gender binary” and adopted a radical new curriculum teaching students to subvert the sexuality of “white colonizers” and begin exploring “the infinite gender spectrum.”
I have obtained a cache of documents from a source inside Portland Public Schools that exposes the nature of this curriculum. The lessons seek to turn the principles of academic queer theory into an identity-formation program for elementary school students. The premise is simple: privileged white heterosexuals have created an oppressive gender system in order to dominate racial and sexual minorities.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA
I & I Editorial Board: The ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ Is A Lie, Pure And Simple
If Democratic lawmakers had to comply with federal truth-in-advertising laws, they’d all be up on charges for the blatantly false name given to the “Inflation Reduction Act.” President Joe Biden claimed last week that “this bill will, in fact, reduce inflationary pressure on the economy.” In fact, it won’t. It was never meant to. The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School examined the bill. Here’s what it concluded. “The impact on inflation is statistically indistinguishable from zero.” Worse, “the Act would very slightly increase inflation until 2024 and decrease inflation thereafter.” In other words, it would add inflationary pressure today, when inflation is already running red hot, draining worker wages, and causing pain and suffering across the land.
Anderson: Baby formula crisis WORSENS as out-of-stock levels hit 30%: Parents accuse Biden of forgetting about them and mom struggling to feed twins says ‘I’m sure these politicians’ babies eat’
Families in Arizona and Wyoming have been hardest hit by the shortage with out-of-stock rates at 44 percent and 42 percent, respectively. Biden and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have made it easier for foreign manufacturers to get shipments into the country, and appealed to companies such as Nestle and Reckitt to step up production. French consumer goods company Danone on Wednesday said it had shipped more than 750,000 cans of its flagship Aptamil baby formula to the U.S. from Europe, with another 550,000 cans on the way. However, parents struggling to feed their children have slammed the administration, with one Louisiana mom alleging it seems like those in power ‘just forgot’ about the ongoing crisis. […] In-stock rates of infant formula remain far below normal levels, despite recent trends showing a rise in formula inventory. The nation reported a 30 percent out-of-stock rate on Friday, based on data from the week ended July 24. The week prior, ending July 17, the out-of-stock rate was 32 percent. Biden’s solution to the ongoing shortage has been to fly in foreign formula to try to plug the gap, but the 802,446 bottles that arrive per shipment barely line the stomachs of the 3 million babies born every year.
Shurk: The Antidote to Tyranny is Liberty, Not Democracy or International Government
Political language manipulates political debate. Abortion opponents who define themselves as “pro-life” semantically render abortion proponents as “pro-death.” Abortion supporters who define themselves as “pro-choice” semantically render any opposition as “anti-choice.” Who wants to be “pro-death” or “anti-choice,” after all? Such is the nature of politics. Words are weapons: when wielded deftly, they shape the battlespace for our minds. So what does it mean when Western leaders these days speak so much of democracy but so little of individual rights? Or that they preach the virtues of international institutions, while demonizing nationalism as xenophobic and dangerous? It means that national sovereignty and natural, inviolable rights are under direct attack throughout the West. […] When presidents and prime ministers make and enforce their own laws under the pretext of “emergency powers,” then citizens should not be surprised when their leaders discover an endless supply of “emergencies” requiring urgent action.
Feldman: Naming Things
In Genesis, Adam names all the creatures of the earth. “God formed out of the earth all the wild beasts and all the birds of the sky and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that would be its name.” There are lots of explanations for why this is significant, depending on your theological viewpoint. To me naming things is not insignificant in everyday life. How you call something shapes the meaning in your mind and manipulates your point of view. […] So to me it’s not a small thing that this administration is changing the definition of so many things like women, vaccines, recession, and illegal immigrants. The press plays along. […] There’s a movement afoot seeking a new name for monkeypox on the grounds that it is offensive to gay men who are the principal sufferers of this disease, particularly when they engage in unprotected sex with large numbers of partners. […] Under the pretense that we can avoid stigmatizing disease by renaming it, I think we exaggerate its reach and at the same time fail to take appropriate measures to stem actions known to spread it. Remember with AIDS we knew that the San Francisco bathhouses were a major disease vector but we never shut them down because… you know. […] The misnaming of things is not just out of Washington. Many local communities are playing the game as well. Take Los Angeles, for example. . . .

Joondeph: Redefining – The New Pretzel Logic of the Left
Definitions make order of our lives. Imagine if the definitions of right and left or up and down could vary based on the whims of our leaders and their pet agendas or causes? This is especially true in science, where everything relies on a solid framework of truths and accepted terms. Economics is one such science and has a host of definitions. One such term is “recession” and here is the definition from the appropriately named publication, The Economist: . . . […] Based on the GDP number released last week, by the conventional quantitative measure of two consecutive quarters of negative GDP, we are officially in a recession. Yet the White House and their media fanboys and fangirls are now trying to redefine recession, ignoring the quantitative definition used for more than half a century. How convenient. […] We define words for a reason, to provide clarity and precision. Unfortunately, the left wants to define everything as it chooses, a state of anarchy where reality is determined by those in charge. How Orwellian.

Morabito: Biden’s Title IX rule could mean your daughter’s college roommate will be a man
Of all the uncertainties that college freshmen must face, none is more sensitive than the issue of roommates. You might become best friends. You might go to war over who ate the leftover pizza in the fridge. There’s nothing to be taken for granted when it comes to living with a virtual stranger, except that men room with men and women room with women. At least, for now. If the Biden administration gets its way, schools could force biological female students to live with biological men who identify as women and vice versa. […] A biological man who began identifying as a woman at age 13 could be treated the same as a biological man who began identifying as a woman an hour ago. Both could be allowed to room with a woman who has no say in the matter, nor could the school be obligated to alert her in any way that her roommate is not, in fact, biologically female.

Jesse Jackson demands owner of Sesame Street theme park hires black board of directors and funnels money to African American businesses to make amends for ‘racist characters snubbing black kids’
Civil rights campaigner the Reverend Jesse Jackson has written to Sesame Place urging it to hire more black executives and mandate racial sensitivity training carried out by black instructors. Jackson, 80, wrote to parent company SeaWorld some suggestions in the letter to remove the ‘stain’ of ‘racism’ after black children were filmed apparently being ignored by Sesame Street characters at parades at the Pennsylvania theme park. The former presidential candidate wants them to bring black Americans into their board of directors and spend money on black-owned business. He wrote: ‘Without sincere action from corporations, discriminatory acts always return. Sesame Place, which is owned by SeaWorld has not provided solutions that I trust will eradicate the culture that has stained this theme park with discriminatory practices. We need SeaWorld to take a stance against past practices and do what is necessary to end discriminatory acts at their theme parks.’ Jackson also wants SeaWorld to give the Philadelphia theme park an African American firm to handle sensitivity training for workers and what he phrases as ‘doing right by’ the family affected.
Lockhart, Matthews & Pleasance: Now Russia cuts off gas supply to Latvia amid growing energy panic in Europe after supplies to Poland, Finland, Netherlands and Denmark were axed – and some cities go dark to save power
Russia’s state-owned gas giant Gazprom cut off gas to Latvia today because the country refused to pay in roubles. In a short statement, the company said it was halting its gas deliveries to Russia’s small neighbour because Latvia broke ‘terms for extraction of gas’, which is believed to refer to the EU country’s refusal to pay in roubles. This week Russia also reduced the amount of gas coming through the Nord Stream 1 pipe – the main route into Germany – to 20 per cent capacity. Officially, Moscow says flows are being choked off because of repairs to turbines which pump the gas but Germany said this was just an excuse. Most believe Putin is exacting revenge on European leaders for defying him over the war in Ukraine. […] Putin appears to be betting that European unity over Ukraine will break before the worst effects are felt back home.
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.
