NOTABLE QUOTES

Jeffrey Tucker Founder and President of the Brownstone Institute: These are very dangerous times, with a toxic mix as backdrop: a growing economic crisis, a spitefully supercilious ruling class, and a vengeful administrative state determined to crush all enemies before it. Something has got to give. May the USA defy the historical odds, find its way back to simple liberty, and begin to restore what has been lost so dramatically and so quickly. Otherwise, all truth will be declared a state secret and our homes will never be safe from invasion.

Ted Noel contributor to American Thinker: I’ve written twice that Donald Trump should not be the next Republican nominee for President. Intended to write a counterpoint essay extolling Donald Trump as a devil’s advocate’s exercise. But with Inspector Javert Wray signing off on the raid at Trump’s Florida residence, no doubt enthusiastically approved by Grand Inquisitor Torquemada Garland, this has lost its academic flavor. Rather, I rise to praise Donald Trump as the necessary candidate for the Republican Party to oppose whatever infernal chimera Acheron will deliver up as The Donald’s hapless opponent. In case you’re wondering, I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore. It’s time to bury the “Democrat” Party. And Donald Trump is the right undertaker.

Mark Levin host of Life, Liberty & Levin tweeted: The Biden Administration raid on former President Trump’s Florida home is a bald attack on our republic.  The Democrat Party is dragging us into the Third World. 2. Raiding and ransacking a former president’s home, and likely future candidate for president against Biden (who has insisted he’s running again), is bullshit. 3. This an unprecedented act of state-sponsored lawlessness.  Millions have rightly lost faith in the DOJ, FBI. media, and Congress, and this is beyond anything I can ever recall. And where the hell is the Senate GOP leadership?  McConnell, Cornyn, Thune, and Barraso?

Issues & Insights Editorial Board: It turns out that the FBI’s campaign against Trump isn’t finished. It tried to keep him out of the White House by pushing the Russia hoax, and when that failed tried to run him out of office by dragging the investigation out for years. Now the bureau is apparently trying to make sure that Trump never holds office again. What’s the one thing we know Trump has been guilty of? He’s not a liberal Democrat or a cowardly Republican. There’s a word for this, when law enforcement becomes an arm of one political party. What is it again? Oh, right, a police state. This is what the left is celebrating. This is why the public needs to strip Democrats of power at the first opportunity, and never give it back.

Kari Lake Republican nominee for governor in AZ: “For our Founders, America was just an idea. For us, America has been a reality and it is up to us to ensure that America does not become a memory.”

State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-FL) responded to the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid: It’s time for us in the Florida Legislature to call an emergency legislative session & amend our laws regarding federal agencies. Sever all ties with DOJ immediately. Any FBI agent conducting law enforcement functions outside the purview of our State should be arrested upon sight. 

Libby Emmons is the Editor-in-chief for The Post Millennial: The poorly named Inflation Reduction Act, passed over the weekend by Senate Democrats, is slated to create positions for nearly 87,000 new IRS agents, 70,000 of whom will be armed.

Robert Spencer contributor to Frontpage Magazine: The First Amendment says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” but make no mistake: we do have an established religion in the United States today. Wokeism, including sexual confusion, contempt for masculinity, erasure of femininity, hatred of children (hence the focus on abortion), and obsession with racism real and imagined (mostly the latter), is the religion that the U.S. government promotes today.

Kari Lake Republican nominee for governor in AZ: “I’m not a fan of busing illegal immigrants to cities around this country. It makes for a great photo op. And sure, it opens up a few eyeballs to our problems. But in the end, you’re just trafficking illegals, and you’re moving them further into the country making it harder to get them out. And that’s not what we’re going to do here in Arizona.”

Steven Hayward attorney and contributor to Powerline Blog: In fact, I predict that if Liz Cheney loses her upcoming GOP primary, as most think she will, Cheney may try to run as an independent candidate in November to deny her Republican opponent by splitting the vote. Wyoming has a “sore loser” law that should prevent this kind of thing, but you can expect some well-funded lawsuits on Liz’s behalf to overcome the law and get on the ballot, even as a write-in if necessary.

 Adam Wilson contributor to 100% FedUp.com: After a battle over LGBT-themed books with explicit illustrations, residents of Jamestown Township, Michigan, overwhelmingly voted to not renew a property tax millage that has helped fund their public library. Over 60 percent of Jamestown voters voted “no” on Tuesday to a 10-year millage renewal and increase for the local Patmos Library. Some 3,000 people, representing a third of the township’s population, participated in the election.

GREAT GLOBAL RESET

Maistrovoy: Globalization in the Shadow of the Crescent

How market globalists, progressives, and jihadists found allies in each other. 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 for diversity, and of a very specific kind. 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 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Nevertheless, this curiosity is a prime example of the direction in which the process of globalization is moving. […]  The situation has changed dramatically in the last decades. Three directions of globalization have formed before our eyes a phenomenon 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. Financial elites have gained unlimited control over the world, subjugating and destroying national economies. Under the pretext of combating global warming, an energy crisis is artificially provoked; the agriculture of entire countries, such as the leading producers of agricultural products, like the Netherlands and Canada, is being destroyed. With the advent of high-tech media such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc., market globalism has reached a qualitatively new level. […]  Mark Zuckerberg’s February 2017 “Building Global Community” manifesto mirrored the narrative of social media globalization, just as Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto became a bible of the emerging communist movement. Social networks have entangled the whole world. The super high-tech giants need neither national borders, nor national manufacturers and consumers with specific cultural characteristics. On the contrary, they, like the financial elites, need faceless, wordless consumer plankton, omnivorous and formless, controlled and directed. How can this “create a new man” project be implemented? Here comes the radical leftist, progressive “justice globalism” of wokesters. […] . . .  no society can exist in the atmosphere of total anarchy without laws, order and rules. Such a society will stop consuming and will simply destroy itself. This is where jihadist globalism enters the scene. Jihadist globalism. . .

Anton: Socialism and the Great Reset

It has become increasingly common to hear those on what we may call the conventional Right claim that the main threat facing the historic American nation and the American way of life is “socialism.” These warnings have grown with the rise of the so-called “Great Reset,” ostensibly a broad effort to reduce inequality, cool the planet (i.e., “address climate change”), and cure various social ills, all by decreasing alleged “overconsumption.” In other words, its mission is to persuade people, at least in the developed West, to accept lower standards of living in order to create a more just and “equitable” world. Since the conservative mind, not unreasonably, associates lower standards of living with “socialism,” many conservatives naturally intuit that the Great Reset must somehow be “socialist.” I believe this fear is at least partly misplaced and that the warnings it gives rise to, however well-meaning, are counterproductive because they deflect attention from the truer, greater threat: specifically, the cabal of bankers, techies, corporate executives, politicians, senior bureaucrats, academics, and pundits who coalesce around the World Economic Forum and seek to change, reduce, restrict, and homogenize the Western way of life—but only for ordinary people. Their own way of life, along with the wealth and power that define it, they seek to entrench, augment, deepen, and extend.

PRESIDENT BIDEN’S STASI 

Arama: Trump Attorneys Spill the Beans on Issues With FBI Raid, Warrant

Trump attorney Alina Habba appeared on Fox News with Jesse Watters. She said that they had been cooperating with the National Archives over the records and that this was completely “unconstitutional.” “Our country should be terrified—I am terrified,” Habba exclaimed. She said the FBI went in when he wasn’t even there, and then told his attorneys to leave, that they couldn’t watch or be there. “That doesn’t sound good to me,” she declared. Habba said the agents came in wearing backpacks, and she was concerned that they could have planted things since they were trying to get the attorneys out of there. […]  Now, here’s Trump attorney Christina Bobb on Real America’s Voice. She was the attorney who was on site. She explains that they initially wouldn’t even let her see the warrant, but then did; they were reluctant to let them have it. It’s not clear from what she says if they ultimately were able to obtain it at some point. She also explained that the probable cause for the warrant was sealed, so that they can’t even know what it was unless they go to court to find out. […]  On top of what the attorneys said, as I noted in my Trump family reaction story, the FBI also wanted the Mar-a-Lago security cameras shut off while they were conducting their raid. Why? The only thing one can think is that they didn’t want the camera to catch something that they were doing.

Devine: FBI searched Melania’s wardrobe, spent hours in Trump’s private office during Mar-a-Lago raid

FBI agents scoured Melania Trump’s wardrobe and spent several hours combing through Donald Trump’s private office, breaking open his safe and rifling through drawers when they raided the former First Family’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida Monday morning. The Post has learned that the search warrant used by the FBI to enter the palatial Palm Beach property focused solely on presidential records and evidence of classified information being stored there. A source close to the former president expressed concern that FBI agents or DOJ lawyers conducting the search could have “planted stuff” because they would not allow Trump’s attorneys inside the 128-room building to observe the operation, which lasted more than nine hours. […]  A legal source said that the boxes had been packed up by the General Services Administration and shipped to Mar-a-Lago when Trump left office in January 2020. Trump’s attorneys, led by Evan Corcoran, had been cooperating fully with federal authorities on the return of the documents to the National Archives and Records Administration, according to sources. […]  The demeanor of the three DOJ lawyers who accompanied the FBI was described by one eyewitness as “arrogant,” and they repeatedly told Trump representatives: “We have full access to everything. We can go everywhere.” […]  The feds instructed Trump’s representatives to switch off the security cameras but they refused.

Greenfield: The Mar-a-Lago Raid is a Preview of a Rigged 2024 Election

The Mar-a-Lago raid is a more aggressive version of the same Russiagate tactics which were aimed at busting and flipping Trump associates, while gathering any materials that can be spun off into related or entirely unrelated investigations. The FBI raid will not result in charges against Trump, but will probably be used to hit staffers and aides with security violations. This has the dual purpose of keeping them from serving in any future administration and putting them through the wringer, running up massive legal bills and getting them to testify against Trump. And it’s only happening because the Democrats expect to run against Trump in 2024. There’s no coincidence that Trump investigations have once again ramped up, after quieting down, as the former president began sending signals that he intends to run again. If Trump had announced that he was formally retiring, there would be no FBI agents at Mar-a-Lago. Instead they would be headed to the homes of any of the potential conservative frontrunners who would suddenly be facing subpoenas, entrapment and wiretapping run out of D.C.

Whedon: Judicial Watch files motion to unseal FBI search warrant for Mar-a-Lago raid

The watchdog group wrote in its motion that “[t]he public has an urgent and substantial interest in understanding the predicate for the execution of the unprecedented search warrant of the private residence of a former president and likely future political opponent.” “[N]o official explanation or information has been released about the search,” it continued. “As of the filing of this motion, the public record consists solely of speculation and inuendo [sic]. In short, the historical presumption of access to warrant materials vastly outweighs any interest the government may have in keeping the materials under seal.”

Solomon: BREAKING: Rep. Scott Perry says FBI seized his phone one day after Mar-a-Lago raid

FBI agents stopped him on family vacation and seized his cell phone just one day after the bureau raided the former president’s home and offices in Florida. Perry told Just the News three agents approached him with a search warrant while he was traveling with family Tuesday morning and asked for the phone. “They seized my phone, imaged it and returned it to me,” Perry said in an interview. The congressman said he was shocked the bureau simply did not ask his lawyer to retrieve any evidence they wanted from him.

Margolis: Wait—Those ‘Classified’ Docs FBI Sought in Trump Raid Were Already Declassified

On Monday, the FBI executed a search warrant of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home that was approved by a magistrate judge who is not only linked to Jeffrey Epstein but was also an Obama donorAccording to CNN, the raid was “part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents, that may have been brought there.” If that is the case, then this further proves that the raid was an abuse of power, because we’ve known for months now that the documents in question were already declassified by then-President Trump.

Devine, Moore & Chamberlain: Judge who approved FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago once linked to Jeffrey Epstein

Sources tell The Post that Judge Bruce Reinhart approved the warrant that enabled federal agents to converge on the palatial South Florida estate on Monday in what Trump called an “unannounced raid on my home.” Reinhart was elevated to magistrate judge in March 2018 after 10 years in private practice. That November, the Miami Herald reported that he had represented several of Epstein’s employees — including, by Reinhart’s own admission to the outlet, Epstein’s pilots; his scheduler, Sarah Kellen; and Nadia Marcinkova, who Epstein once reportedly described as his “Yugoslavian sex slave.” Kellen and Marcinkova were among Epstein’s lieutenants who were granted immunity as part of a controversial 2007 deal with federal prosecutors that allowed the pervert to plead guilty to state charges rather than federal crimes. Epstein wound up serving just 13 months in county jail and was granted work release.

Sundance: Was Judge Who Signed-Off on Sketchy FBI Search Warrant Raid of Trump Home, a Client Name in Ghislane Maxwells Little Black Book?

There’s an interesting angle given the revelation that Judge Bruce Reinhart signed-off on the sketchy FBI search warrant for the residence of President Trump in Florida. Judge Bruce Reinhart was the former U.S. attorney in West Palm Beach who spent 12 years as a federal prosecutor, before leaving his position in order to defend a network of employees who operated the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking operation.  First the background:. . .

JUDICIARY

Elkind: DC appeals court rules Congress CAN access Trump’s tax returns in another legal blow to the embattled ex-President

A federal court ruled in a 3-0 decision on Tuesday that House Democrats are legally allowed to seek Donald Trump‘s tax returns. ‘The DC Court of Appeals has just ruled that the law is on our side in seeking Trump’s tax returns,’ the House Ways and Means Committee official Twitter account posted.

‘We expect to receive the requested tax returns and audit files immediately.’ It’s a major blow to Trump’s years-long fight in the courts to keep his tax returns from any kind of probe. The three judges on the court were appointed by Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Late last year, Trump-appointed District Judge Trevor McFadden ruled that the Treasury Department can turn the former president’s financial documents to House investigators. Trump has claimed that his tax returns were being sought for political purposes and violated the separation of powers as described by the US Constitution.

JANUARY 6

Kelly: The Scandal of the Secret Service’s Deleted Texts

Before and during Donald Trump’s time in the White House, powerful federal agencies aligned to sabotage his candidacy and then his presidency. Once-trusted entities such as the FBI, the intelligence community, and even parts of the U.S. military have burned their credibility by abandoning their missions to instead try to end Trump’s political career. Does this include the Secret Service? Unfortunately, the scandal over deleted texts related to January 6 demands the question. Last month, the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that houses the Secret Service, officially informed Congress that text messages the office sought as part of its investigation into the Capitol protest were gone.[…]  And the purge did not happen while Trump or his Homeland Security chief were in charge. Between Congress’ first request for DHS to retain all records associated with January 6 and the cell phone “reset” on January 27, 2021, Joe Biden became president—which means the deletions happened on his watch. […]  Would the mystery of Vice President Mike Pence’s exact whereabouts be solved? As the chaos unfolded that afternoon, what exactly did the Secret Service do? And if the situation was so dangerous, why didn’t they evacuate Trump from the White House?

Lendrum: Teachers’ Union Calls for Summer Reading to Include Book About Disrespecting the National Anthem

The largest teachers’ union in the country recently proposed that its summer 2022 reading list for students include a book that defends the act of disrespecting the National Anthem by kneeling for it before sporting events. As reported by The Daily Caller, the National Education Association (NEA) lists the book “Why We Fly” on its website for suggested reading in August of 2022, as students prepare to return to school. The book includes marijuana use by teenagers and focuses on two cheerleaders who decide to kneel for the National Anthem after being inspired to do so by a football player who did the same, a reference to how the real-world protest of the Anthem was started by disgraced NFL player Colin Kaepernick. The NEA’s website also lists several discussion questions that would be asked after students finish reading the book, including: . . .

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Macgregor: Will Biden Stumble into a New World War?

n 1979, President Carter formally abandoned the 1954 Mutual Defense Treaty with Taiwan. Carter’s action abruptly ended Washington’s commitment to defend Taiwan against attack from the Chinese mainland. Yet, in an answer to a journalist’s question about whether he would use military force in response to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, President Biden stated, “Yes, that’s what we are committed to.” When it comes to defense and foreign policy, there are very few stone-cold realists in Washington’s policy-making circles. Since 1945, with a few notable exceptions, most American presidents have tended to put short-term political celebrity or ephemeral liberal causes ahead of tangible, concrete national interests in America’s relations with other nation-states. Biden is no exception to the rule. Guided more by impulse and emotion than reason or knowledge of the facts, President Biden, like most of Washington’s ruling political class, may be privately pleased with Speaker Pelosi’s visit to Taipei. When Speaker Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan is viewed in the context of Biden’s self-evidently thoughtless remark, however, it is clear that the combination is having a negative impact across Asia.

Revolver.news; Nancy Pelosi Is a Bigger Danger to America Than China

But was this visit really a big win for America? Or was it a stunt designed to distract Americans from the real threat to their country? More sober analysts pointed out that this was an unnecessary provocation that did little to help American. Pelosi’s visit didn’t weaken China’s resolve to take Taiwan, nor did it strengthen Taiwan’s defenses. It was merely an empty gesture that aggravated the Chinese. There’s also an important domestic element to the trip. It demonstrates the Globalist American Empire (GAE) can easily win the support of conservatives so long as it saber rattles against China. The GAE will do nothing substantive to diminish the Chinese threat. All its cronies will do is tweet “Uighur Lives Matter” and carry out stunts like Pelosi’s Taiwan visit. But the GAE wants the American people to be more alarmed by the Chinese Communists than by anything happening domestically. Unfortunately, many conservatives fall for this bait. […]  Besides failing to challenge China on a serious level, Nancy Pelosi presents a more immediate threat to ordinary Americans than the ChiComs. So does the entire leadership of the Globalist American Empire. It was revealed this week that the FBI considers the Betsy Ross flag, the Gadsden flag, and other traditional American symbols as signs of “domestic terrorism.” We shouldn’t be shocked by this; the GAE wants to topple all symbols and values associated with the historic American nation.

Spencer: Biden’s Handlers Released 324 Unvetted Afghan Evacuees on Terror Watchlist Into the U.S.

A Defense Department (DoD) whistleblower has revealed that 324 of the Afghans whom U.S. forces brought to the United States as the disaster in Afghanistan was unfolding appeared on the department’s Biometrically Enabled Watchlist (BEWL), which includes terrorists, and yet were admitted into the country without being vetted. No one who has been watching the spreading dumpster fire that is the Biden administration could possibly be surprised. […]  The whistleblower also charges that “Department of Homeland Security (DHS) staff were authorized to delete old biometric data at their discretion.” Really, what could possibly go wrong? Hawley and Johnson point out, with admirable understatement, that this is a “troubling development that could threaten national security and public safety.” Yeah, it could. And as it was all initially unfolding, Joe Biden was doing what he does best: lying. […]  In reality, however, there appeared to be a concerted effort to bring unvetted Afghans into the United States. At least 82,000 Afghans were brought to the U.S. without being vetted. In October 2021, Senate Republicans noted in a memo, accordingto the Washington Examiner, “senior officials across the departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State, and Justice described a disastrous screening and vetting process.” Immigration officials accepted uncritically what Afghans said about who they were, without making any effort to check their stories. According to the Examiner, “the large majority of people, approximately 75%, evacuated were not American citizens, green card holders, Afghan Special Immigrant Visa holders, or applicants for the visa.”

I & I Editorial Board: Here Come The IRS Shock Troops

It’s about the left’s obsession with wealth redistribution, its naked lust to leverage other people’s money for its own gain, and the growing thuggishness of Democrats. It’s about the progressive-socialist political complex’s craving for more and more raw political power. As Ayn Rand famously wrote in “Atlas Shrugged,” government can flex its power only by cracking down on criminals, so “one declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws,” The Internal Revenue Code, with its complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty, is perfectly suited for just that.

Continued Dr. Floyd Ferris, a weasley government gangster in “Atlas Shrugged.” “Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed? We want them broken. … We’re after power and we mean it. … But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that’s the system, Mr. Rearden, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with. ‘

York: 86,852 new IRS employees

The problem is what the problem always is: The big money is in the big middle class. Workers who make more than $400,000 — that includes people right at that number up to super-billionaires — are only about 1.8% of all taxpayers, even though they account for about 25% of the nation’s income. The other 98.2%, making up about 75% of the nation’s income, is a lot bigger. And indeed, that’s where much of current IRS enforcement is focused. The same will likely be true of the new, muscled-up IRS. “The main targets will by necessity be the middle and upper-middle class because that’s where the money is,” the Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote recently. “The Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’s official tax scorekeeper, says that from 78% to 90% of the money raised from under-reported income would likely come from those making less than $200,000 a year. Only 4% to 9% would come from those making more than $500,000.” In any event, there will be a lot of increased enforcement. About $45 billion of the $80 billion for the IRS will go to investigating taxpayers. That means that not every one of the IRS’s 86,852 new employees will be auditors and examiners, but a lot of that manpower will in fact go to audits and increased scrutiny of taxpayers. Many of the targeted taxpayers will have to hire accountants to represent them in dealings with the IRS.

Troutman: Pelosi Prolongs Proxy Voting as COVID Cases Trend Downward

House members will be able to vote by proxy until the end of September, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) announced today, citing the COVID-19 pandemic even as cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continue to trend downward. Proxy voting, which means that one member of the House can cast a vote on behalf on an absent member, started in May 2020, and Pelosi has extended it multiple times, citing “the public health emergency due to the novel coronavirus.” The proxy-voting period would have ended Aug. 12 had Pelosi not extended it to Sept. 26. […]  “Although the Constitution allows Congress to write its own rules, those rules cannot violate the Constitution itself, including the requirement to actually assemble in person,” McCarthy said.

THE BIG GUY’S SON

Boswell: EXCLUSIVE: VP Joe Biden met with two Chinese energy execs in the West Wing – the FIFTEENTH meeting with businessmen tied to his son’s company – who days later sent Hunter a fawning email offering to fix his $102k luxury EV

Executives for Chinese energy company Wanxiang secured a meeting with the vice president in the West Wing in July 2014 with just one day’s notice, according to White House visitor logs. A client of Hunter’s company Seneca Global Advisors partnered with Wanxiang in 2012 on a $1.25billion natural gas plant in China. The ceremony for the signing of the deal between Hunter’s client GreatPoint Energy and Wanxiang was attended by then Chinese vice president Xi Jinping. Wanxiang is a major Chinese company, and also partnered with the North Korean state for a giant copper mine.

DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MARXIST PLAYBOOK: WOKE IDENTITY POLITICS

Weiss: There’s no such thing as a nonbinary skeleton

According to woke archaeologists and anthropologists, ancient human remains should no longer be classified as either male or female. Apparently, this is because we do not know how these people would have identified themselves. Last month, for instance, the Black Trowel Collective, a group of American archaeologists, said we should be ‘wary of projecting our modern sex and gender identity categories on to past individuals’. Some academics have even started to explicitly label ancient human skeletons as ‘nonbinary’ or ‘gender neutral’. This attempt to stop the sex identification of skeletal remains, dating hundreds or even thousands of years old, probably sounds like a slightly absurd academic squabble – of concern only to archaeologists and anthropologists. But it has far-reaching implications.

BANNON’S WAR ROOM: AIRED 8/8/22

Alex Jones: Infowars’ Popularity Has Pushed The Establishment To Try To Silence Alex Jones

Alex Jones of Infowars.com talks to “War Room” host Steve Bannon the week after he was found guilty of causing injury to the parents of a student killed at Sandy Hook. He’s been ordered to pay $50 million in an effort to silence him. “We reached 87 million different IP addresses logged into Infowars the week of the election in 2016, so that really scared the establishment when Infowars was the biggest media outlet (for just a week or so) in the world… And so they began to de-platform me, and they admitted we’re going to do this to everybody after they don’t stand up for Jones, after they don’t stand up for Assange… The Wall Street Journal even reported in 2017 ‘We’re gonna then be able to shut everybody else down.’”

THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS DEMOCRAT PARTY’S MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Olohan: She Allegedly Aborted, Burned And Buried Her Baby. Here’s How Media Covered It.

A Nebraska teenager allegedly aborted, burned, and buried her baby with the help of her mother. Major media outlets that covered the story obfuscated these key facts, instead highlighting that Facebook assisted law enforcement in uncovering the alleged crimes by providing the duo’s messages. […] Media that covered the story were quick to emphasize the disclosure of the Facebook messages to authorities, to bury the accusation that the baby was burned, and to refer to the baby’s death using the lingo pushed by abortion groups, as a “self-managed abortion”: Forbes headlined its story: “Facebook Gave Nebraska Cops A Teen’s DMs So They Could Prosecute Her For Having An Abortion.” The story’s lede makes no mention of the fact that the mother and daughter allegedly burned and buried the baby — in fact, the Forbes story does not once mention the word “burn.” NBC News headlined its story: . . . The Huffington Post headlined its story: . . . The Cut headlined its story: . . .

Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for ‘Russia Hoax’ Records Declassified and Ordered Released by President Trump

Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for records ordered declassified and released by President Trump the day before he left office.  The records relate to “Crossfire Hurricane,” the controversial spy operation against President Trump, his 2016 presidential campaign, and other Trump associates, and have yet to be made public by the Biden administration (Judicial Watch, Inc. v U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:22-cv-02264)).

Troutman: ACLU Calls on UN To Demand US Dole Out Reparations

The ACLU and Human Rights Watch want the United Nations to demand that President Joe Biden “take immediate, tangible measures,” including reparations, to “dismantle structural racism” in the United States. The groups are recommending that the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which will meet later this month, order the United States to “provide effective remedies, including reparations for racial discrimination, including ongoing structural discrimination that flows from the legacies of slavery.” The ACLU, which ostensibly advocates for Americans’ civil liberties regardless of politics, has a long history of defending left-wing policies. The group in April said it would use “the full force of the law” to allow children to undergo transgender hormone treatment. The ACLU is also a top advocate for the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, the Washington Free eacon has reported. Human Rights Watch also routinely criticizes the Jewish state, with Ben and Jerry’s basing its anti-Israel boycott on advice from a high-ranking Human Rights Watch employee. Ben and Jerry’s parent company overruled the anti-Semitic boycott following widespread criticism.

Thorne: Hillary Clinton Flaunts Her Democrat Privilege, Peddles ‘But Her Emails’ Swag the Day After Mar-a-Lago Raid

Damn, it’s good to be a Democrat! The very day after news broke of a blatantly partisan FBI raid on the home of former President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton rubbed the furious nation’s face in her Lefty privilege. Clinton — or whoever runs her Twitter account — thought today was a good day to pimp her swag celebrating that time DOJ let her skate after she destroyed 33,000 emails. This, even though the emails were under subpoena, and hundreds of them contained classified material that then-Secretary of State Clinton had improperly handled. Yet she suffered no legal consequences for her obvious crime. […]  America woke up furious today. But Clinton saw an opportunity:

AP & Collins: Grand jury DECLINES to indict woman, 88, who triggered 1955 lynching of 14-year-old black boy Emmett Till after accusing him of wolf-whistling at her

A Leflore County grand jury considered evidence and testimony regarding Carolyn Bryant Donham’s involvement in the kidnapping and death of Till, Leflore County District Attorney Dewayne Richardson said in a news release. After hearing seven hours of testimony, they determined that there was not sufficient eveidence to indict Donham. Charges of both kidnaping and manslaughter were considered. Last week, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Donham, 88, is living in a small apartment community in Kentucky. She suffers from cancer, is legally blind and is receiving end of life hospice care – and photos showed her with oxygen tubes looped over her ears.  Asked if she or her son, Thomas Bryant, would speak about Till and the events that destroyed and re-shaped the worlds of so many, Bryant, shook his head while Donham stood by silently.

Newsome: From Law Enforcers to Woke Enforcers

On a Sunday morning in July, Darren Brady was at home when two policemen visited to accuse him of a crime, without reading his rights. They offered a choice: he could attend a re-education course, at a cost to him of about $80; or face arrest. He refused to sign their papers. When the police came back, they offered the same choice, but this time both sides were filming. The footage is shocking.  Western policing is on the road to hell, paved with woke intentions. Brady’s supposed crime was to repost on social media a graphic satirizing a police state, with a swastika within the national flag. The national flag is Britain’s. Brady and the police in this story are British. But make no mistake, America is on the same road—although the road is receiving little attention. […] . . . what if law enforcers themselves go woke, and use the criminal justice system to enforce the cultural revolution? That’s where Britain is. That’s where America is heading. Britain is further down that road, but America is on the same road to hell, paved with woke intentions.

Miller: ‘The police are now the paramilitary wing of the trans lobby’

Free-speech campaigner Harry Miller was arrested two weeks ago. His alleged crime? He obstructed the attempts of Hampshire Police to arrest Darren Brady, an army veteran who had been targeted by the cops for sharing an anti-woke meme on social media. According to the police, Brady had committed a criminal offence by posting a meme mocking the trans-inclusive ‘Progress Pride’ flag, because it had caused someone ‘anxiety’. Brady was arrested alongside Miller. Their encounter with the cops went viral and was watched by millions around the world. It was a stark reminder of the ever-present threat of state censorship in Britain – and of the police’s sinister embrace of woke.

TAKE ACTION

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.
