NOTABLE QUOTES

David Horowitz founder Frontpage magazine: For progressives the issue is never the issue. The issue is always the “revolution” – the “re-imagining” and transformation of American society into a future where genders are selected and “social justice” prevails.  That goal is so worthy and so necessary, it justifies any and all means to achieve it. Once this is understood, one can see that under the surface of the crises we face is a sinister force that poses an existential threat to our way of life – a threat far more immediate than the so-called climate apocalypse. Morality is about following rules that ensure virtuous ends. Detach the means from the ends and what you get are the totalitarian regimes that have blighted the modern era. At the root of the current American crisis is what can only be described as the moral depravity of the “woke” progressives and their radical agenda.

Dan Gelernter contributor to American Greatness: So here’s an idea: Let’s get rid of the FBI. There’s no constitutional provision for federal law enforcement, and it’s high time we shrink the Interstate Commerce Clause back to size. And the unemployed agents who miss knocking down doors and confiscating private property can always find work in Europe, either with the European government or with the European government’s top competitor, the mafia.

Paul Krause contributor to American Thinker: The trick of Western totalitarians has been to slowly embrace totalizing control over our lives. Through small, incremental doses, the populace at large seems unaware of the erosion of freedom. One generation dies and the next generation inhabits a world less free than the past; but because they do not know the freedom of the past generation, they do not know better and accept the status quo. That generation passes away and the crises it faced permitted new incremental controls by the government which create that “new normal” for the next generation. Rinse and repeat.

Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ): The FBI found no evidence President Trump, or his allies coordinated any part of the Capitol riots. The January 6thCommittee would like for you to ignore that.

Eileen F. Toplansky contributor to American Thinker: . . . it would appear that the new wave of transgenderism among youth is reminiscent of FGM practices. But while the leftwing establishment rightly condemns female genital mutilation, it praises transgenderism as “gender-affirming” and an act of courage.

Nicholas Fondacaro  NewsBuster associate editor tweets Whoopi statement: Goldberg says “God doesn’t make mistakes” and thus it’s in his plan to have women choose abortion. “God made us smart enough to know when it wasn’t going to work for us. That’s the beauty of giving us freedom of choice.” “My relationship [with God] is always choppy,” she adds.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in a CNN interview: “I don’t think that it is appropriate to think about it that way because the question for us is, are we a nation of laws? Are we a country where no one is above the law? And with that, the facts and the evidence shows. Certainly, I have been very clear, and I think he is clearly guilty of the most derelict of duty of any president of our nation’s history. A federal judge in California said that it is more likely than not that he and John Eastman committed two crimes. I think that we are going to continue to follow facts and that the Department of Justice will do that. They had to make decisions about prosecution, understanding what it means if the facts and evidence are there and they decide not to prosecute. How do we then call ourselves a nation of laws? I think it’s very serious balance.”

Mangan: Trump likely to be criminally charged in DOJ election probe along with other former White House officials, Obama AG Holder says

ADVERTISEMENT
  • Former President Donald Trump “probably” will be indicted on criminal charges along with former White House officials as part of a Justice Department investigation of efforts to reverse the 2020 election results nationally, ex-Attorney General Eric Holder said.
  • But Holder suggested Trump is more likely to first face possible criminal charges from a Georgia prosecutor investigating Trump and allies for attempts to undo President Joe Biden’s win there.
  • “I expect you’re going to see the pace of this investigation or these investigations pick up,” Holder said.

THE GREAT GLOBAL RESET

(June 2022) Dr. Lee Merritt – Targeted DNA Harvesting & Damage, De-Population, Globalists IMMUNE, Repairing DNA

Dr. Lee Merritt joins us to discuss the DNA harvesting throughout history that has led to the targeted damage of human DNA, the “elite” bloodline that is immune to the bioweapon attack, whether viruses actually exist, the possibility of repairing human DNA and more.

Maistrovoy : Globalization in the Shadow of the Crescent

In May of this year, Audi posted a video on Twitter with the caption “At#EUDiversityMonth #Audi”. It had little to do with advertising the car itself. It was an advertisement of diversity, and a very specific one. A woman wearing a black hijab slowly raised the rainbow flag with her both hands. Once again: a Muslim woman in traditional Islamic clothing advertises the LGBT community. Considering how Muslims treat gays, lesbians and transgenders, this is comparable to the Nazis advertising kosher products, and the Stalinists advertising the Declaration of Human Rights. Nevertheless, this curiosity is a prime example of the direction in which the process of globalization is moving. […]  Three directions of globalization have formed before our eyes, which the Austrian sociologist Manfred Steger defined as market globalism, justice globalism and jihad globalism.  At first glance, there is nothing in common between them. Moreover, they even look irreconcilable with each other. But first impressions are deceiving.

U.S. SUPREME COURT

Howe: Justices will hear case that tests power of state legislatures to set rules for federal elections

The Supreme Court will take up a case from North Carolina next term that could upend federal elections by eliminating virtually all oversight of those elections by state courts. On Thursday, the justices granted review in Moore v. Harper, a dispute arising from the state’s efforts to draw new congressional maps in response to the 2020 census. The doctrine at the heart of the case is known as the “independent state legislature” theory – the idea that, under the Constitution, only the legislature has the power to regulate federal elections, without interference from state courts. Proponents of the theory point to the Constitution’s elections clause, which gives state legislatures the power to set the “Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives.”

JANUARY 6

Sundance: Coordination Between J6 Committee and Politically Motivated DOJ is Intended to Break Attorney-Client Firewalls in Trump Targeting Effort

The long-term motives and plans of the J6 committee and their coordination with the DOJ are starting to come into increased clarity as the mid-term elections draw near. A key indicator of the strategy from within the J6/DOJ effort surfaced when the quasi-constitutional “committee” sent a subpoena to former President Trump legal counsel Pat Cipollone, then leaked the subpoena, then leaked the testimony, then shaped, edited and broadcast the testimony during their prime-time broadcast.   After the J6 broadcast, attorney Cipollene was then subpoenaed by the DOJ and recent reports indicate he is being called to testify before a grand jury. The legal strategy, hereafter called by what it is, a Lawfare strategy, is now clear. […]  Political elements within the legislative branch (J6) are colluding with political elements within the executive branch (DOJ), to fracture the constitutional protections that exist not only for presidents’ (exec privilege), but also for all Americans (attorney/client privilege). In ordinary times, this approach would be a jaw-dropping controversy that would come under rebuke from everyone involved in the media and justice system. What is being described, well, actually what is happening, is what happens in third-world banana republics when presidents of various political regimes take office and then target their opposition using the state police or military.  What is being done under the auspices of the J6 committee and DOJ is an identical scenario using a longer approach that works around the foundation of the U.S. political and legal system.

Revolver.news: Release the Tape: Revolver Has Definitive Proof FBI Is Hiding Critical Footage of Jan 6 “Pipe Bomber”

An exclusive analysis by Revolver News can prove that the FBI is in possession of, but has refused to release, security camera footage of the January 6 pipe bomber planting the pipe bomb at the DNC building at 7:52 p.m. on January 5th. This extraordinary revelation should be the immediate subject of Congressional inquiry as to why the FBI has stonewalled release of the footage. An executive summary of the missing footage has been condensed in this video below: . . . […]  Revolver covered the FBI and Justice Department sides of the pipe bomb cover-up all year last year. What we didn’t cover at the time was the role of the Secret Service. That’s because nothing was publicly known about the Secret Service’s role in the pipe bomb saga until November 2021, 10 months after the event. As it turns out, the secret location Kamala Harris left the Capitol to go to in the morning — long before any violence or hint of violence ever broke out at the Capitol on January 6 — was none other than the DNC office building: the very site where the DNC pipe bomb had been planted the night before. The Biden Administration, and Kamala Harris in particular, kept this fact such a secret that not even Democrat party inner circle members were allowed to know it until then. In fact, not even the US Justice Department knew. Incredibly, for the first 10 months after January 6, in dozens of criminal indictments, federal prosecutors had gone out of their way to tell judges and grand juries that Kamala Harris was inside the Capitol building while it was under siege by protesters. Prosecutors were forced to file dozens of superseding indictments, because they had lied to federal judges and grand jurors to convince them that Harris was in the Capitol, under siege by the defendants on trial.

Kelly: The Evasive Mr. Wray 

Despite leading a scandal-ridden agency quickly losing the trust of the American people and congressional Republicans, Wray somehow believes that setting aside less than four hours to answer questions by lawmakers responsible for checking and balancing his work is sufficient. “I had a flight that I’m supposed to be high-tailing it to, and I had understood that we were going to be done at 1:30, so that’s how we ended up where we are,” Wray told Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the ranking member who asked why the rush. If Wray needed to leave on business, Grassley noted, “you’ve got your own plane,” referring to the taxpayer-funded Gulfstream G550 jet used to ferry the head of the FBI around the country privately. Wray got his way—the committee wrapped shortly after 1:30 p.m. with no chance for Republicans to ask follow-up questions. It was a symbolic win and another example of how Wray almost always prevails in skirmishes between his agency and members of Congress. […]  Once again, Wray designated the events of January 6 an act of domestic terrorism, bragging that FBI agents so far have arrested and charged more than 850 Americans for their involvement in the mostly nonviolent disturbance that happened over 18 months ago. […]  Pressed several times to condemn the situation at the border as a national security threat, Wray repeatedly demurred. […]  Wray had no explanation as to why his department is not enforcing a federal law that protects federal judges; . . .

Brown: ‘What Are Y’all Doing?’: Cruz Scorches FBI Director for Targeting Patriotic Symbols

In Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz took Wray to task for the Biden administration’s politicization of the Bureau that’s been turned into a weapon against conservatives while ignoring leftist violence — and Cruz pulled out all the stops. To illustrate his concerns, Cruz brought up a “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide” produced by the FBI and exposed by Project Veritas that included the Gadsden flag, Betsy Ross flag, and Gonzales Battle flag as being indicators of “militia violent extremism.”

ADI Staff Reporter: Sinema Hugs Romney For Approving Progressive Lawyer To Serve On Ninth Circuit

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema hugged Sen. Mitt Romney for changing his vote against the appointment of progressive activist, attorney Roopali Desai, to a seat on the bench of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Desai was confirmed in a rushed 67-29 vote, after Arizona’s two Democratic Senators, Sinema and Mark Kelly pushed President Joe Biden to nominate her in June. Desai has been one of the primary attorneys for the Democratic Party of Arizona in the Party’s numerous battles against election integrity efforts by Republicans. Sinema has touted the fact that it was she who “personally” ensured Desai’s nomination was confirmed in record time.

Phillips: ‘Trump is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters’: Dick Cheney eviscerates Donald in campaign ad for daughter Liz and calls him ‘the biggest threat to the Republic in our nation’s history’

The congresswoman brought out her 81-year-old former vice president dad as a last ditch effort to defy recent polling that puts her squarely behind primary rival. […] Dick Cheney eviscerated Donald Trump as the greatest threat to the United States in history in a new campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney, who is facing a defeat in the Republican primary in Wyoming next week. ‘In our nation’s 246 year history there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump,’ veteran Republican Cheney said in a new clip released on Thursday. The congresswoman brought out her 81-year-old former vice president father as a last ditch effort to defy recent polling that puts her squarely behind primary rival Harriet Hageman ahead of an August 16 primary. Hageman led Cheney by more than 20 points in a late July poll by the Casper-Star Tribune and Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy. […]  Respondents were quick to point Cheney’s heavy hand in the Iraq War launched by President Bush. ‘Isn’t your dad a war criminal?’ one user wrote back on Twitter.

Vespa: Liz, Daddy Can’t Save You

They were once a political powerhouse family, the face of Wyoming’s Republican establishment until Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) decided to declare war on Donald Trump. In a few days, we’re going to close the books on the Cheney family’s public career. If only Liz had read the tea leaves, she could have secured another term in Congress. Her re-election chances are on life support right now due to her anti-Trump operations and doing the communications work on this front with congressional Democrats. Cheney has gone on record noting how she wants nothing to do with Trumpism, vowing to prevent the former president from seeking another term as president. She’s carried water for Democrats on CNN and other liberal networks, giving the January 6 Select Committee the veneer that this is a bipartisan effort. Cheney has voiced an intense dislike of Trump supporters in her state; more people voted for Trump in 2020 than Liz, by the way. To anyone with cognitive function, that’s a sign of the changing times. […]  Does this family not comprehend that their time is over? And no, Donald Trump isn’t the greatest threat our republic ever faced. Is historical illiteracy another affliction impacting the Cheney clan? If Liz ventured back to her state occasionally, she’d know that her voters can’t stand her.

MONKEYPOX: AND SO IT BEGINS

Kekatos, Mitropoulos,Haslett & Gittleson: Biden administration declares monkeypox a public health emergency

Amid growing calls from health officials across the country, the Biden administration declared the current monkeypox outbreak to be a public health emergency in the U.S. on Thursday afternoon. The declaration, which was made by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, comes a little less than two weeks after the World Health Organization designated the outbreak an emergency of international concern. By issuing a declaration, HHS will be able to take a series of actions including accessing funds set aside for such an emergency as well as appointing personnel to positions directly responding to the emergency. It also gives Health Secretary Xavier Becerra significant flexibility to bend federal rules or waive requirements on government health programs like Medicaid, Medicare and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. […]  The CDC will now also now receive data from all jurisdictions reporting who is vaccinated as well as data on testing and hospitalizations.

He is a Senior Research Fellow at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at Reichman University in Israel.

During the last years a single case was documented in Israel. It is well established the mRNA vaccines affect the natural immune system. A monkey pox outbreak following massive covid vaccination: *Is not a coincidence.”

Liebing: ‘Winter of Death’ 2.0? Dr. Fauci Just Threatened 70% of Americans

Dr. Anthony Fauci has once again sounded the warning bell over COVID-19, saying in an interview on Tuesday that those who are not up to date on vaccines will “get into trouble” this fall and winter. “If they don’t get vaccinated or they don’t get boosted, they’re going to get into trouble,” Fauci told Los Angeles radio station KNX-AM. […]  The Kaiser Family Foundation found that as of July 21, 227.8 million Americans either had not received a primary series of shots or had not gotten a booster dose. That is about 70 percent of the population. […]  In the Tuesday radio interview, Fauci called the overall vaccination and booster rates “quite discouraging.” […]  Fauci called getting vaccinated and boosted a “communal responsibility.”

Hewitt: The Covid ‘Vaccine’ Scam

“Emergency Use Authorization” (EUA) came into prominence with the “Right to Try” law.  This law was another way for patients who had been diagnosed with life-threatening diseases, who had tried all approved treatment options and who were unable to participate in a clinical trial, to access certain unapproved treatments. What is the difference between FDA Approval and Emergency Use Authorization? “FDA Approval” from the Food and Drug Administration is an independent, scientifically reviewed approval for medical products, drugs and vaccines.  Approval is based on substantial clinical data and evidence, the product is deemed safe, effective and able to be produced within federal quality standards.  Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism used by the FDA to facilitate making products available quickly during a public health emergency, when there is no other adequate and approved medical product available. […]  What is the difference between an EUA “vaccine” under President Trump and the same one under President Biden?  One was available and the other became mandatory. […]  Why were they so hellbent in trying to get every single person on the planet “vaccinated” when Drs. Fauci and Birx knew from the beginning that the “vaccines” were deeply problematic?  They knew there was over twenty years of research on messenger RNA gene therapies that killed all the lab rats and test animals.  Did Fauci and Birx ignore the science and hoped it would work on humans? […]  Americans are now recording record breaking “excess deaths.”  The EUA “vaccines” are killing people.  Drs. Fauci and Birx and Joe “did that.”

(CANADA) Berenson: More disappearing Covid vaccine data

Add British Columbia to the governments trying to hide the reality that the mRNA jabbed make up the vast majority of Covid hospitalizations and deaths. […]  . . . the fact that 75 to 80 percent of all deaths occur in boosted people highlight the sad reality that the shots do little if anything to stop severe cases and death from Omicron – the final defense of vaccine advocates. And so British Columbia announced last week that the Vax Donut Chart would be no more. “As of July 28, the Outcomes by Vax and Vax Donut Charts have been retired,” a notice on the Centre for Disease Control Website said blandly. Retired! Orwell would be proud. Worse, the charts from earlier weeks also seem to have disappeared from the Wayback Machine – the Internet’s most crucial archive.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING AMERICA

Horowitz: Shame of the Nation

Everyone can sense that the political situation we find ourselves in is anything but normal. Yet the language we use to describe current conflicts is a language designed to frame them in the category of politics as usual – only perhaps more so. In speaking about current conflicts, we focus on the surface “issues” that divide us – a record inflation, off-the-charts crime waves in our urban centers, a humanitarian crisis at our southern border. Sometimes we sum it up as a double standard in the justice system that treats violent leftists as “peaceful protesters” and public school parents concerned about the abuse of their children as “domestic terrorists.” That juxtaposition gets us closer to the true nature of the conflict. But it is still inadequate to the gravity of the political moment, suggesting that progressives simply fail to understand the issues at hand. But they understand them very well. […] The Democrats are a party that has lost its way. Its moral standard is “the ends justify the means,” which is no moral standard at all. In other words, it lacks a moral compass, which is why the nation that it runs lacks one too.

EXCLUSIVE: Report Shows Biden Admin Run By Former Registered Foreign Agents

More than a dozen high-ranking members of the Biden administration previously worked as registered foreign agents, according to a new report obtained exclusively by The Federalist. The report was published by the Biden administration watchdog “Inside Biden’s Basement,” itself a project of the nonprofit Transparency Action Fund. Titled, “Foreign Agents Lurking Inside Biden’s Basement,” the group’s new report outlines the networks of at least 13 officials under President Joe Biden who were once paid to represent foreign interests and registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Their prior clients range from Iran and Kazakhstan to Canada and Mexico. […]  The Foreign Agents Registration Act requires that anyone lobbying on behalf of a foreign client disclose their business to the Department of Justice. Filings regularly demonstrate the extent of bipartisan corruption in Washington. As the Washington establishment sought to undercut former President Donald Trump, FARA enforcement kicked into high gear amid investigations into Trump officials such as Paul Manafort. Those efforts, however, highlighted how deeply entrenched foreign interests are in Washington, D.C., also ensnaring Tony Podesta, a top Democrat lobbyist and the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Manafort, Tony Podesta, and Rick Gates failed to disclose their lobbying efforts on behalf of interests connected to former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. While the media focuses heavily on the very real problems of foreign influence among certain Trump associates, far less attention is paid to the damning connections shared by Biden officials.

von Spakovsky: The Latest Federal Takeover of Elections Violates Federal Law

Democrats haven’t stopped trying to take over elections, they just have new tactics to do so under voters’ noses. Employees throughout the federal government who are carrying out President Joe Biden’s executive order directing them to get involved in state elections are likely all violating the Anti-Deficiency Act, besides interfering in the election process and using federal resources in what seems to be a get-out-the-vote operation for the party in power in the White House. And the administration is doing everything it can to hide its activities in violation of the federal open records law. On March 7 last year Biden issued an executive order that he claimed was intended to promote “access” to voting. He has no constitutional or statutory authority for this order. Biden justified it by making a series of false allegations in the order. He claimed, for example, . . . […] . . . the Biden administration doesn’t want to reveal the details of the strategic plans formulated by these federal agencies. Not only have state election officials not been given information about this, but several organizations, including the Foundation for Government Accountability, that filed requests under the federal Freedom of Information Act trying to get copies of these plans have been met with outright defiance from the Biden administration.

THE BIG GUY’S SON

Cleveland: Grassley’s Questioning Of Wray Suggests Biden Scandal Is The Tip Of The Deep-State Iceberg

Sen. Chuck Grassley’s questioning of FBI Director Christopher Wray during Thursday’s Judiciary Committee hearing, when considered in conjunction with the details provided by FBI whistleblowers, is suggestive of an even bigger Hunter Biden scandal. […]  In revealing news of the whistleblowers’ claims, Grassley did not further detail the sources of the derogatory information. However, in questioning Wray during Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, four exchanges proved intriguing — and potentially insightful. 1. Was a Second U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Evidence Buried? After using his opening statement to review the whistleblowers’ allegations, Grassley asked Wray whether “when the FBI receives a potential criminal investigation relating to a matter subject to information and prosecution by a U.S. attorney, is it the FBI’s standard practice to share that information with the relevant U.S. attorney’s office?”

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON CHILDREN

Troutman: Dems Poised To Pull Free Lunches From Christian School That Refuses to Obey LGBT Mandates

Grant Park Christian Academy in Tampa, Fla., represented by Alliance Defending Freedom, is suing President Joe Biden and Florida agriculture commissioner Nikki Fried for enforcing the Biden administration requirement that schools comply with its LGBT mandates or lose federal school lunch funding.

[…] The Florida school refused to substitute gender identity for biological sex, costing them their ability to feed two meals and snacks daily to their 56 students when the fall semester starts.

Reinl:  American Academy of Pediatrics is accused of pushing trans-identifying teens towards ‘nuclear option’ of puberty-blockers, hormones and eventually surgery – and blocking a review into its practices

America’s top child health authority is under fire for pushing the over-use of puberty-blockers and hormones on transgender youth, and for stifling debate over whether a non-drug therapy approach is better. Critics say the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is blocking efforts to review its influential policy on ‘gender-affirming care’ for teens who identify as transgender at its leadership meet, which starts in Chicago on Thursday. The AAP says its guidelines — to reinforce the gender a youth selects, including through gender-affirming drugs, hormones and eventually surgery — are evidence-based, widely supported and offer the best chances for a suicide-prone group. The academy’s advice guides the work of some 67,000 AAP-affiliated childcare specialists and the gender-affirming policies of President Joe Biden‘s administration. Clinicians told DailyMail.com the AAP policy was shoehorning trans-identifying teens towards life-altering drug cocktails and that an opportunity to thoroughly review its approach was being squandered.

Chalk: Telling Kids To Hate Their Biology Might Be What’s Actually Killing Them

Whenever anyone expresses concern about pressing gender ideology on American youth, the typical retort is to cite suicide statistics. “Transgender and nonbinary youth have considered suicide at higher rates than other LGBTQ youth,” warns an NPR article from May. “Children and teens who do not identify with their assigned gender can face higher rates of depression, suicide and self harm than other kids,” The New York Times reported in March. Because of the vulnerability of “trans youth,” activists claim, resisting pro-trans indoctrination is a direct threat to the welfare of an already victimized and marginalized group. School leaders claim they are justified in hiding the trans identity of students from parents who might harm them. “Affirming trans children’s genders reduces their risk of attempting suicide,” asserted a March article in Vox, and compared “anti-trans legislation” to genocide (yes, really). A political cartoon in The Washington Post earlier this year even accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis of being personally responsible for the suicide of trans children. Yet what if the opposite is true, that promotion of alternative sexual identities among America’s children is aggravating our national mental health crisis, and increasing the likelihood of self-harm among vulnerable young populations?

Kendig: Studies Show Federal Mental Health Programs Make Students Worse

Congress will most likely pass bills designating money to programs addressing mental-health disorders through established mental-health programs, like the federal Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) program implemented in American schools to improve student mental health. But should they? In 2014, President Obama launched the Now Is the Time Initiative, which focused on mental health. According to The Mental Health First Aid website, the program received $15 million in federal grants to launch Mental Health First Aid programs in classrooms. One year later, Obama gave the organization another $15 million and a commitment to annually fund the program. MHFA was intended to train students and teachers to be able to spot, diagnose, and report mental illnesses to trained professionals in order to prevent a future tragedy. In an interview with the Washington Post, Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., said, “To be effective, we’ve got to go to where kids are with mental health, emotional health resources, and that means going into the schools.” Early spotting is MHFA’s goal. But it’s unclear if MHFA is actually achieving its goal. Research shows that in most cases, MHFA training in students does not improve students’ mental health. In some case studies, MHFA has even been shown to decrease the mental health of students.

Whedon: Democrats block measures to stop gain-of-function research

Senate Democrats on Thursday declined to offer unanimous consent to two measures to stop gain-of-function research, a process now infamous over its alleged connection to the spread of COVID-19. Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall put forward both the Viral Gain of Function Research Moratorium Act and the SAFE Risk Research Act, which aimed to cut funding to universities conducting such research and foreign countries doing so, respectively. Gain of function is a process by which researchers genetically modify a virus. It has the potential for risk as an enhanced virus could potentially become a significant threat to humanity.

Lupo: BREAKING: Gov. Ron DeSantis Suspends Lawless Soros-Backed State Attorney Andrew Warren

Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a pro-active stance to protect the citizens of Florida from rogue prosecutors who are picking and choosing which laws to enforce, often openly doing so in the name of “social justice”.  Late this morning, with numerous law enforcement representatives including the well-known Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, Governor DeSantis announced, effective immediately, the suspension of State Attorney Andrew Warren of Florida’s 13th Judicial District. […]  In June 2021, State Attorney Warren signed a letter that said he would not enforce a prohibition on any sex change operations for minors.

According to Gov. DeSantis “Warren said that it doesn’t matter what the legislature does in the state of Florida.  He is going to exercise a veto over that.  He’s also instituted policies of ‘presumptive non-enforcement’…that is not consistent with the role of a prosecutor. [ Update: DeSantis sent state police to physically remove Warren from his office, “with access only to retrieve his personal belongings, and (ii) to ensure that no files, papers, documents, notes, records, computers, or removable storage media are removed from the Office of the State Attorney…”]

Miller: Florida’s ‘Vile’ New License Plate Leads to Manufactured ‘Controversy’ and Tons of Hypocrisy

The “controversy” began on July 30 when DeSantis announced Florida’s new Gadsden flag license plate, which features the familiar “Don’t Tread on Me” declaration with a curled rattlesnake on a yellow background. According to the governor’s office, as reported by the NBC New affiliate in Tampa, proceeds from the optional plate will benefit Florida veterans in need. The free state of Florida has a new license plate for pre-order that benefits the Florida Veterans Foundation and sends a clear message to out-of-state cars, “Don’t Tread on Me” or Florida. Controversial?

Lambert: Jaguar I-Pace catches on fire again – is this another Bolt EV battery fire situation?

Another Jaguar I-Pace battery caught on fire without any crash after simply sitting charging in a garage. This is the fourth known I-Pace battery fire that seemingly started on its own, which is starting to be significant considering the relatively small number of units on the roads. Jaguar also uses LG battery cells like the Bolt EV and Kona EV, which were both recalled for battery fire risks. Is this another Bolt EV battery fire situation? The I-Pace is Jaguar’s first and only all-electric vehicle.

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.
