Jessica Chasmar reporter for Fox Business news reports on the new IRS job postings: A “key requirement” for applicants is that they have to be “legally allowed to carry a firearm,” and “major duties” include “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary” and “Be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments,” according to the job posting.

David Harsanyi contributor to The Federalist: The Democrats’ new reconciliation bill isn’t just going to be the largest-ever expansion of a government agency, it’s going to be the largest expansion of the domestic police state in American history. Only a statist could believe that a federal government, which already collects $4.1 trillion every year—or $12,300 for every citizen—needs 80 new battalions of new IRS cops.

Victoria Marshall  contributor to The Federalist: By doubling the size of the IRS, Democrats are doubling the number of dues the NTEU receives, dues that will be funneled to bankroll Democratic political campaigns. NTEU dues range from $16 to $23 per pay period. If all 87,000 new IRS agents were forced to unionize, the number of dues collected would amount to at least $33,351,168 per year — all ripe for the taking by Democrats. How clever.

Bruce Thornton contributor to Frontpage Magazine: . . . today’s technocratic, credentialed managerial elite must still pay lip-service to notions of citizen equality and sovereignty, even as the they lessens the freedom and autonomy of the people, states, and civil society. The rise and presidency of Donald Trump sparked such intense, irrational bipartisan animus in part because he highlighted and crudely mocked those elite pretensions and specious rhetoric of equality, and still today has the support and loyalty and almost half the voters. As a result, we are now witnessing unprecedented assaults on the law and the Constitution, a dangerous escalation of technocracy into tyranny, one in which our bipartisan oligarchy of wealth and privilege has sided with those who have contempt for the middle- and working-class denizens of “fly-over” country.

J.B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: With every tool for silencing public debate at its disposal, the United States government seeks to make itself impervious to the will of America’s voters.  No nation can remain united when its corrupt politicians betray their representative duties.  No country can endure when its government views its citizens as enemies.  No constitutional republic can survive when its bloated bureaucratic system undermines its own constitutional limits.  Peace will not hold.

Citizen Free Press tweet: FBI Director Chris Wray confronted on FBI raid of Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago… Wray deflects, says he’s “concerned” about “threats” being made to FBI agents after they ransacked Trump’s home.

Douglas V. Gibbs contributor to Canada Free Press: The Democrats accused Donald J. Trump of being a fascist. They claimed he wanted authoritarian rule. They claim the Republicans are out to run America in a dictatorial manner and that to stop them the supporters of the Democrats must do everything they can to stand against the GOP. They were projecting.  It is them who are the tyrants.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: The agency has become dangerous to Americans and an existential threat to their democracy and rule of law. The FBI should be dispersing its investigatory responsibilities to other government investigative agencies that have not yet lost the public trust.

 Kyle Shideler is the Senior Analyst for Homeland Security and Counterterroism at the Center for Security Policy: To save the rule of law, the bureau must be destroyed.

Scott Johnson contributor to Powerline Blog: Coordination among the authorities and the mainstream media operatives is so blatant one might conclude is so blatant as to be laughable. We miss Rush Limbaugh’s recurring demonstration of the phenomenon. The FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is only the latest in a long line of examples. Word came down that what was once a “raid” is now a “search.” The conformity of the talking heads is mind-boggling.

Hubbard: Donald Trump invokes the Fifth to avoid answering questions in New York AG’s probe

Former President Donald Trump said he declined to answer questions in Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James’ probe. He was subpoenaed to testify on Wednesday as part of the New York AG’s investigation into his family and the Trump Organization’s business practices. “[U]under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution,” he said on Truth Social. In his statement, Trump outlined all of the ways that James has attacked him in recent years.

Widburg: Trump provides a learning moment about ‘taking the Fifth’

The Fifth Amendment states in relevant part that “No person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself….” The purpose of the Amendment is to prevent the government from persecuting people into confessing crimes, whether real or imaginary. In an era before the protections our Constitution provides, people were tortured to “confess”—that is, to be witnesses against themselves. It is the government’s responsibility, with its vast resources, to find evidence that overcomes every defendant’s presumption of innocence. Thanks to the Fifth, the government does not get to take a shortcut by forcing the defendant to “confess.” Of course, even with the Fifth, the government can still torture people to confess. Thus, you’ve heard the phrase “the process is the punishment.” In the case of General Michael Flynn, the government, with its unlimited resources, destroyed his reputation, bankrupted him, lied about the evidence it had, and then threatened to go after his son. This was a form of torture and Flynn responded with the equivalent of a confession by taking a plea bargain.

Hellner: The absurdity of the NY AG’s investigation of Trump’s valuations of his properties

The NY AG, Federal Justice Department and other Democrats have been targeting Trump in search of a crime. The NY AG is accusing Trump of inflating his net worth and value of properties. If everyone who thought that they and their net worth and properties were worth more than they are were guilty of fraud, the Jails would be very crowded. If Trump committed fraud the banks would have destroyed him. Banks don’t just take the word of someone who comes in for a loan. They are required to get financial statements, tax returns, and appraisals before they make loans of all sizes, let alone the amounts the Trump Organization borrowed.

Vespa: Should Trump Do a Mole Hunt to Unearth the FBI Rat in His Inner Circle?

It happened again. Donald Trump made grave errors at the outset of his presidency, namely keeping too many Obama holdovers in key positions, especially at the Department of Justice. The first sign of trouble was when Sally Yates, then acting attorney general, refused to enforce the constitutional and legal executive order on immigration that the liberal media erroneously dubbed the “Muslim ban.”  It wasn’t just the Justice Department where the stench of rebellion was fomenting, but also from other agencies and their respective staffs. Trump had enemies everywhere, even among some of his closest advisers. I don’t need to name these figures—you’ve already seen the butcher’s bill. […]  Should Trump be worried about this informant? A former US attorney thinks so . . .

ELECTION INTEGRITY: NOT

Marshall: Democratic Operatives Control Voter Rolls In 31 States, Report Shows

A prominent voter-roll management system used by 31 states and the District of Columbia has politically compromised ties, according to a new report by independent research group Verity Vote. The Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, was sold to states as a quick and easy way to update their voter rolls. Started in 2012 by far-left activist David Becker and the left-leaning Pew Charitable Trusts, the program is ostensibly run by the member states themselves. But as public records show, Democratic operatives are working overtime under the cover of ERIC to accomplish their partisan goals and drive Democratic voter turnout. Becker’s left-wing ties have long concerned Republican state officials participating in ERIC. Before he started ERIC, Becker worked as a lobbyist for People for the American Way, a George Soros-funded advocacy group best known for the Right Wing Watch project, a website that catalogs and attacks conservative politicians and movements. Before that, though, he was a Justice Department attorney whom colleagues remember as a “hard-core leftist” who “couldn’t stand Conservatives.”  […]  How does ERIC work? […]  While several member states have expressed concern over ERIC, only Louisiana has formally withdrawn. ERIC makes it difficult for states to leave, as it prohibits resignation 91 days before a federal general election. So what can states do? Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, recommends that states stop complying with ERIC’s membership requirement prohibiting states from sharing their voter roll maintenance data, as it conflicts with federal law. The Public Interest Legal Foundation also has four lawsuits against AlaskaColoradoLouisiana, and D.C. focused on a provision in the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), which requires that states make public all data related to their voter maintenance lists.

PRESIDENT BIDEN’S STASI

Merrick: Democrats’ Plan C: Bring in the Brownshirts!

The Democrats/Marxists/Socialists/Communists are getting desperate. Midterms are looming, Republicans are gaining steam—aided more and more by the careening actions of the Democrats in power—and the Democrats MUST secure their future (not the future of the US, I hasten to add) at any cost to the American Taxpayer. The following are now obviously the democrats’ plans to hold the power they have stolen. Plan A: From bussing their government-sponsored illegals to all points here in our country—to giving loads of our money and our best hotel rooms to vagrants, the left are ‘people users,’ extraordinaire. Under the guise of being great civil libertarians, the fact is that the left will never stop using our tax dollars to buy votes for themselves. And, in return, these new liberals will never shoot themselves in the foot by ever voting against the ones who give them all the great freebies. They are flooding the nation with illegals who will be voting sooner or later, one way or another, democrat. […]  Plan B – Defuse the growing concerns about the US – China relationship, concerns that the US is selling out our country to China (wonder who is on the final side of receipts from this sellout? We can only speculate). There have certainly been signs, including selling China our “surplus” oil, borrowing so much money from them that they now “own the bank”, the Wuhan debacle, for some. Here is a theory— . . . […]  Plan C – Bring in the Brownshirts. Destroy Donald Trump. Vilify him. Criminalize him. Early efforts . . .

Sundance: Part 1, Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – The Story Behind the Documents

The past 24 hours have provided a great deal of clarity on several issues.  CTH will be outlining the entire story behind the raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, including what documents the DOJ and FBI are determined to control.  However, before getting into the specifics, it is important to remember the full context of the threat that only Donald J Trump represents. When you understand what documents President Trump was/is holding, the desperation of the DC response will make sense. First, we need to remind everyone where the documents originated.  What was President Trump asking the Office of Director of National Intelligence, Dept of Justice and FBI to release for the past four years?  What is contained within those documents? This is Part 1 that explains the actions in the background of those documents.  This is the activity outlined within the evidence contained in the documents.

Sundance: Part 2 – Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – The Evidence Within the Documents

It is critical to understand that foundationally our corrupt political system is built upon a network of surveillance.  It is through monitoring information and people, together with intercepting risk, that operations can continue to maintain a corrupt administrative state; what some might call the Deep State.

Within the system information is key, and the actions taken by DOJ and FBI officials are an outcome of this information.  As Edward Snowden explained, the surveillance state is critical to power retention. President Trump carried documents that outlined how this process took place as it pertained to his entry into politics, thus the raid to retrieve them. There is a common misconception about why the FBI and intelligence apparatus began investigating the political campaign of Donald Trump.

Sundance: Part 3, Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump – A Culmination of Four Years of Threats and Betrayals

In Part One we outlined the origination of the modern Deep State {Go Deep}.  In Part Two we outlined the specific targeting of Trump that was carried out through the tools that originate in the modern Deep State {Go Deep}.  Here in part three, we outline how and why President Trump was blocked from releasing the evidence. The motives of the DOJ and FBI are clear when you have a full comprehension of the background.  However, it’s the threats and betrayals against President Trump that most people have a hard time understanding.  Why he was blocked is clear, but how Trump was blocked is where you realize the scale of the threat that exists within this corrupt system.

Griswold: 20 Things The Feds Probably Planted In The Boxes They Took From Trump’s House

Given the bureau’s long track record of malfeasance, however — concocting an elaborate Russia collusion hoax, branding conservative parents as domestic terrorists, labeling anodyne right-wing symbols as extremist dog whistles, entrapping Americans in plots to kidnap radical governors, concluding a stand-off by murdering dozens of children, rigging an election by hiding information that harmed their preferred candidate, and egging on protesters and rioters before branding them as insurrectionists, just to name a few — it isn’t too hard to imagine that some of the things the FBI recovered from Mar-a-Lago weren’t recovered at all, but planted. We won’t know what the FBI found at Trump’s domicile until somebody leaks it to the media as part of a calculated, pre-election info-op, but here are 20 best guesses as to what they might have, shall we say, contributed. 1. Cocaine from the Hunter Biden Evidence Shed

Evidence that’s been wrongly labeled as “disinformation” is the easiest kind to inconspicuously lift and plant in the residence of a former president. 2. Glossy 8×10 of Vladimir Putin With “I <3 Putin” scrawled across the front in black marker that just happens to be the exact same color and thickness as the FBI markers used to label the evidence boxes.

Hoft: HUGE DEVELOPMENT: Report Alleges FBI “Had Personal Stake” in Mar-a-Lago Raid – Agents Were After Spygate Documents Trump Was Holding That Likely Implicated FBI

As reported earlier today — President Trump declassified a binder on January 19th, 2021 that contains hundreds of pages about the Crossfire Hurricane scandal. It contains damaging information about the corrupt actors involved with our government. Two different DOJ Attorney General’s have defied President Trump’s direct lawful order to publish the binder in the Federal Register.  […]  New details on Monday’s raid of Mar-a-Lago may offer an explanation on what the FBI was looking for and why the FBI has not released the Spygate documents as they were ordered to when President Trump left office. Investigative reporter Paul Sperry had his Twitter account taken down for the second time on Monday.Sperry had his first Twitter account removed after he identified Eric Ciaramella as the leaker in the first Trump impeachment trial. Sperry had his second account takedn down on Monday after he tweeted about the Mar-a-Lago raid and what the FBI was looking for. According to Paul Sperry, the FBI agenst spent 9 hours looking for details President Trump took with him on the Crossfire Hurricane FBI spying scandal.

VDH: FBI, R.I.P.?

The FBI is dissolving before our eyes into a rogue security service akin to those in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. Take the FBI’s deliberately asymmetrical application of the law. This week the bureau surprise-raided the home of former President Donald Trump—an historical first.

A massive phalanx of FBI agents swooped into the Trump residence while he was not home, to confiscate his personal property, safe, and records. All of this was over an archival dispute of presidential papers common to many former presidents. Agents swarmed the entire house, including the wardrobe closet of the former first lady. Note we are less than 90 days out from a midterm election, and this was not just a raid, but a political act.

Shideler: For the Rule of Law to Reign, the Bureau Must Be Destroyed

I say all this to establish that I am not some dyed-in-the-wool civil libertarian who has always had it in for federal law enforcement. I have spent most of my adult life trying to educate people about the serious national security threats this country faces. The United States has very real enemies, both foreign and domestic, and it requires defending. Nevertheless, the FBI must be abolished. The solution to the abuses we now endure is not just to subject the FBI to another fruitless inspector general investigation but to dismantle it completely. The bureau cannot be the focus of yet another congressional hearing. FBI Director Christopher Wray, like his predecessors, is more than happy to sit smirking while a handful of grandstanding congressmen and senators pound the table and yell on C-SPAN. Then he’ll jet off for a holiday vacation on a taxpayer-funded private jet while the same congressmen vote to increase his budget. Again. No, the FBI must be rendered into component parts and distributed to the four winds. […]  The FBI’s actions over the past six years make perfectly clear that the FBI is more than willing to serve as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. […]  But the FBI has also served as the Democrats’ sword as well.

On other matters, Director Wray declined to answer questions about the nine-hour search conducted Monday by FBI agents of Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida home.

In another unprecedented move in Wyoming politics, a pair of U.S. House Democrats are asking Wyoming Democrats to “temporarily” change their party affiliation so they can vote for U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney in the Aug. 16 Republican primary.  In a Facebook ad campaign that started Friday, U.S. Reps. Dean Phillips, D-Minn. and Tom Malinowski, D-N.J. urged voters to support the congresswoman who has taken former President Donald Trump head-on. “Now you might be a little surprised that I’d be supporting Liz Cheney in her bid to continue representing Wyoming in the U.S. House,” Phillips says to the camera. “But principle must come before politics.” […]  Cheney has become a hero for many in the Democratic Party due to her unflinching dedication to speaking out against Trump and his attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

The rise and presidency of Donald Trump sparked such intense, irrational bipartisan animus in part because he highlighted and crudely mocked those elite pretensions and specious rhetoric of equality, and still today has the support and loyalty and almost half the voters.

[…]  Cheney has been one of the most prominent of the fifth-columnist Republicans. Despite Trump’s record of achievements at home and abroad, she let her sense of entitlement as political royalty blind her so much that she has co-chaired the preposterous Jan. 6 House Committee hearings, a classic show-trial with no cross examination but plenty of dubious hearsay. And don’t forget, she was hand-picked by Nancy Pelosi after the Speaker rejected two other Republicans because of the likelihood they would conduct embarring cross-examinations of dubious witnesses. In other words, Cheney has been happy to be a useful idiot for the same people who viciously demonized her father. What sacred “principle” does such a sacrifice of the country’s good for her own class prejudices, represent?

McCann: The Lockdowns and Mandates Emboldened the Ruling Class and Led to the Raid on Mar-a-Lago

The entire panoply of the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic countermeasures, from lockdowns to vaccine mandates, has been a once in a century fiasco and among the biggest blunders in American history.  This chapter is also the catalyst that emboldened an already despotic ruling class and the American left:

to unabashedly take their fraudulent manipulation of elections out of the shadows and into the daylight, to no longer hide their socialist agenda, to brazenly weaponize the justice system against their political opponents, and to be so audacious as to unjustifiably raid the home of President Trump, their archenemy. […]  Why did the vast majority of the American citizens meekly succumb to the unprecedented usurpation of their rights and unquestioningly believe the so-called “experts”?  Why did so many turn into a group-thinking herd mindlessly marching to the music played by the government?  Why did so many scientists, educators, doctors, and journalists abandon their integrity and compassion as well as scientific and intellectual curiosity? […]  The most effective tool in manipulating an increasingly agnostic and secular populace is to provoke fear and panic.  Which is easily done with a sizable percentage of the American population that has become hyper risk-averse and permanently on the verge of a nervous breakdown.  Herd mentality and mass hysteria are effortlessly fomented as far too many, rather than question the “experts”, are willing to believe anything the omnipotent government bureaucrats and politicians say and to mindlessly follow their edicts.

Schlichter: Stop Assuming the Legitimacy of the Corrupt Establishment’s Actions

You are right to want to heave when you see some Republican poobah in the year of Our Lord 2022 respond to the illegal, immoral, and utterly catastrophic stormtrooper raid on President Trump’s home with a tepid, noodle-spined soliloquy along the lines of “Well, we need to not jump to any conclusions and wait to see what the facts are before we act like free men and call out this grubby Democrat fascism.” Of course, the last part about being free men and calling out grubby Democrat fascism would never be uttered by one of these saps, because the idea of being free men and calling out grubby Democrat fascism would never occur to them. Let me save them some time, since they are no doubt still waiting for those elusive and secret facts that are going to make this latest round of targeting our president A-OK. This was an atrocity, a disgraceful, disgusting, and dangerous escalation of the War on the Normals by our enemies designed to frame Trump and send a message to his supporters that we are second class citizens. […]  Pull your head out of your Pelosi and understand. Our Republic is under attack. The norms are gone. The people you want to give the benefit of the doubt to want to give you and your base the benefit of a gulag.

UN 2030

Malone MD, MS: “If you control the food supply, you control everything,”

I spent the afternoon reading the UN’s 2030 agenda, with its 17 goals and 169 targets. This is an agenda that the UN has been working towards building since 1992 – Frankly, it was terrifying. My take away thought was that once you strip the unicons and butterflies out of the text, this unilateral consensus document reads like an updated communist manifesto . This is particularly relevant because while the Agenda 2030 is a not a legally binding instrument, but the regional and ​international human rights Conventions and Covenants at the core of Agenda 2030 are, in fact, binding instruments of international law. So, for now – we can insist that our politicians fight against the more draconian aspects of agenda 2030. Now, at first glance -most of the 169 targets of Agenda 21 are rather “fuzzy.” but extremely naive objectives.  They are the goals of a command economy government, not an organization for world peace! Frankly, they are the goals of a failed governmental model. A model that has been tried again and again. Definition: A command economy is a system in which a central government makes all economic decisions. Either the government or a collective owns the land and the means of production.

SOME CALL IT MAGA

Yenor: In Defense of National Conservatism

Two recent Law & Liberty articles try to expose soft spots in national conservatism. Tyler Syck’s criticism pits national conservatism against our reigning civil rights regime, while Mark Tooley challenges national conservatism for embracing a relationship between religious faith and nationalism outside of the American tradition. National conservatism is a work in progress. National conservatives have issued a Statement of Principles to explain their general disposition, and I signed it. Generally, national conservatives worry that the sovereignty of the nation is being worn away through universal, globalist powers imposing an inhuman, stultifying ideology. International bodies are part of this global imperium. So are multi-national corporations and other oligarchic entities, which are destroying popular government and the institutions necessary for virtuous, happy lives all around the globe. Everywhere, governments, bureaucracies, and corporations are demanding conformity to the reigning civil rights regime—and crushing opposition. This reigning civil rights regime sees all inequalities as signs of universal oppression, and its purveyors demand a remaking of the world by experts in the name of elusive, ever-changing notions of equity. The alternative to this global imperium must be named. Thus, national conservatism defends our civilized and civilizing commitments like the rule of law and free enterprise and the institutions that serve the permanent and aggregate interests of civil society like the family and sound science. Above the individual is the nation and above the nation is God, not a new world order. What would a national conservatism look like?

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Coughlin: The US Must Ditch Its Incoherent Policy on Taiwan

China’s extreme military response to Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan sends an unequivocal message to the US that it can no longer sustain its policy of “strategic ambiguity.” At a time when the very existence of the democratic island state is under threat from China’s communist rulers, what Taipei badly needs is unconditional declarations of support from its Western allies, not the diplomatic equivalent of sitting on the fence, which essentially sums up the Biden administration’s inadequate response to date. Although the Chinese military committed numerous violations to Taiwan’s territorial integrity in the days immediately following Pelosi’s visit, the Biden administration shows no sign of abandoning the policy of “strategic ambiguity” that has defined Washington’s approach to the Taiwan issue for decades. The origins of this policy date back to US President Richard Nixon’s infamous visit to China in 1972, which eventually led Washington officially recognising the communist regime in Beijing. By doing so the US abrogated the mutual defence pact it had signed with Taiwan in 1954.

Chasmar: IRS faces online uproar over special agent job posting requiring ability to use deadly force ‘if necessary’

An online job posting for special agents within the law enforcement branch of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is causing a stir on social media, as Congress prepares to pass a spending bill that would greatly expand the federal agency. A link to a job posting for “Criminal Investigation Special Agents” appeared to have been briefly deleted on Wednesday, following online criticism of the posting’s language, though it reappeared back online after a FOX Business inquiry to the agency. A “key requirement” for applicants is that they have to be “legally allowed to carry a firearm,” and “major duties” include “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary” and “Be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments,” according to the job posting.

Womack: Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act is simply Build Back Better 2.0 and it’s a scam

Take their latest Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. It’s quite the title. But, beneath the shiny new label is a familiar monstrosity. It’s really the remnants of the so-called “Build Back Better” plan, the largest tax-and-spend measure ever to be imagined, resurrected. Albeit, slightly hollowed out and restyled to try and lure unsuspecting Americans in. It’s certainly creative. The same Democrats whose trillion-dollar spending spree unleashed the highest inflation in nearly 40 years will now attempt to persuade people the very solution to the problem they created is to spend billions more. Even the snake oil salesman is shocked by the plan. […]  Then there is the scheme to double the size of the IRS by spending $80 billion to hire thousands of new agents. We know the reality. It wasn’t so long ago the White House implemented tracking bank accounts with $600 annual transactions through Venmo. They won’t be going after billionaires and big companies. They’ll be used to ramp up audits on hardworking, middle-class Americans. […]  When you pull back the curtain, you see what this package really is: a scam. The Democrats have shown time and time again that they will use any crisis as a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit [their] vision.” They’ve been outspoken about reengineering the economy to implement their socialist wish-list. This hefty expansion of government under the guise of inflation relief is no different.

VACCINE MANDATES

Kirsch: Vaccine injuries are real, not rare. Here’s why your doctor can’t see them.

I can’t tell you how many COVID vaccine injured (especially with neurological issues like numbness, tingling, pain, seizures, etc) tell a story of going to their doctors only to be told “There is nothing wrong with you. It’s all in your head.” The reason is simple but very important: COVID vaccine injuries are too small to be detected with the standard tests (including MRI) that doctors do. I spoke to Ryan Cole recently about this. Mechanisms of damage caused by the vaccines that are too small to see on most tests include (but are not limited to): Temporarily opening up the blood brain barrier. Penetration of the LNP containing the spike protein into the brain resulting in inflammation and blood clots inside your brain as well as damage to the cell mitochondria. Damage to the myelin sheath protecting your nerves. Damage to endothelial cells. Micro-clots in your brain and the rest of your body.There are only a few ways to convince your doctor he’s wrong and that you are vaccine injured: . . .

The Expose: 1 in every 246 Vaccinated People has died within 60 days of Covid-19 Vaccination in England according to UK Government

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) is the UK’s largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK. It is responsible for collecting and publishing statistics related to the economy, population and society at national, regional and local levels. On the 6th July 2022, just hours before Boris Johnson announced he was resigning as Prime Minister of the UK, the ONS published its latest dataset on deaths in England by vaccination status, which can be found here, and it contains a whole host of horrifying data. For instance, it reveals that over the past year, 9 in every 10 Covid-19 deaths were among the vaccinated population (See here). It also shows that in April and May 2022, 94% of Covid-19 deaths were among the vaccinated population; 90% of which were among the triple vaccinated (See here).

MONKEY POX VACCINES & THE FDA

Malone MD, MS: Monkey Pox Vaccines

Significant side effects, and not the only option. […]  JYNNEOS (also known as Imvamune or Imvanex) is licensed (or approved) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention of Monkeypox virus infection, and ACAM2000 is licensed (or approved) by FDA for use against Smallpox and made available for use against Monkeypox under an Expanded Access Investigational New Drug application. […] But it was NOT in the context of this outbreak, that the current smallpox vaccines were tested and licensed against monkeypox. Nope – it took 20 years after this outbreak for the FDA to get around to licensure of the small pox vaccines for monkeypox. These vaccines were licensed in 2019. What a strange coincidence – that this happened two years before the current outbreak! According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, there is not yet any data available on the effectiveness of either vaccine in the current outbreak of monkeypox. But there is older data available from animal studies, clinical trials and studies in Africa. Note: there have been no randomized clinical trials done, but lots of immunobridging type studies and an “in the field” trial by fire testing for post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP of health care workers in Africa. Just like repurposed drugs and multi-drug, multi-stage treatments for COVID, there are studies that suggest efficacy. Which in this case, was plenty for the FDA to grant FULL licensure. […]  Unpleasant truths about the Moneypox vaccine Dr. Meryl Nass has summarized key aspects of these products in her substack linked above.Very high rates of cardiac effects and HIV worsening compound the problem that there are no efficacy data from humans. Does it even work? 1) there is no evidence to support using this vaccine in pregnancy, lactation or children.  There is no information on male (as well as female) fertility effects or carcinogenicity. 2) About 2% of recipients had a serious adverse event 3) . . .4) . . .5) . . . […]  ​Most monkeypox cases resolve with only the use of over-the-counter medications for symptomatic care. However, more severe cases can be treated with an antiviral medication called Tecovirimat or TPOXX, which is available through the US stockpile. Although this medication is available, it is not directly approved for monkeypox.

Stiles: NIMBC: This Journalist Wants To Keep Riffraff Out of Her Ritzy DC Neighborhood

Yet another NBC journalist is fighting to prevent the unwashed masses from befouling the sanctity of their ritzy Washington, D.C., neighborhood. Longtime host Andrea Mitchell is among the wealthy homeowners on Chain Bridge Road NW—described as “one of Washington’s most exclusive and prestigious streets”—who are aggressively opposing measures to allow greater access to unsavory drivers and pedestrians.Washington City Paper reports that the “quintessentially D.C. dispute” dates back to at least 2009, when residents of the wealthy neighborhood successfully pushed back against city plans to build sidewalks for pedestrians in the interest of public safety. Opponents complained that doing so would make the posh neighborhood feel more “urban,” a racist euphemism for “not white.”

Sibarium: American Bar Association Scraps Controversial Diversity Proposal After Blowback

The American Bar Association on Monday axed a proposal to require law schools to “diversify” their student bodies after more than a year of warnings from law professors that the plan would force schools to violate federal law. The proposal, first released in May 2021, would have required law schools to submit annual progress reports on minority enrollment to the American Bar Association. Law schools that failed to boost the enrollment of “underrepresented groups” would have been at risk of losing their accreditation. The proposal underwent three rounds of revisions before finally being withdrawn by the association’s house of delegates, which did not rule out revisiting the proposal at a later date. An early draft had warned that U.S. anti-discrimination laws were “not a justification” for “non-compliance” with the diversity standard, a line that drew criticism from many in the legal community, including from elite universities.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION

That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis

Kilpatrick: C.S. Lewis’ Fantasy is Our Reality

George Orwell’s prophetic novel 1984 has often been invoked for its ability to predict the increasingly arbitrary and tyrannical nature of our present society. But three years before the publication of 1984, another dystopian novel which was in some respects more prescient than Orwell’s appeared in English bookstores. Like 1984, only on a smaller scale, C.S. Lewis’s That Hideous Strength describes a descent into tyranny that bears an eerie resemblance to our current situation.  However, Lewis foresaw a few things that weren’t on Orwell’s radar. When Orwell reviewed That Hideous Strength shortly after its publication in 1945, he warned that “we are within sight of a time when such [monstrous] dreams will be realizable.”  But Orwell also criticized Lewis for bringing “supernatural elements” into the story because “they offend the average reader’s sense of probability.” But if there are supernatural forces at work in the world, wouldn’t one be remiss not to mention it?

WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS?

(H/T CC) Webb: Trump Raid Smoking Guns – Pottingers Planted Plots

Donald Trump suspects planted evidence in the raid of Mar-A-Lago, but he probably doesn’t now who took out the last President to be undermined so badly. And if Trump learned who took out Nixon, he would have no problem figuring out who who is undermining him. Stan Pottinger, Henry Kissinger’s hatchetman, took out Richard Nixon. Now his son Matt is taking out Trump’s bid for a reelection. In October of 2021, I did a series of news shows on a little-known US State Department diplomat named Matt Pottinger that had joined Donald Trump’s National Security team as a Deputy Advisor for Peter Navarro. I had profiled Matt Pottinger as the “Kissinger Kid”, primarily because his father, Stanley Pottinger, was the key man in coming up with “Deep Throat” in the Watergate Affair to take out Richard Nixon as President with Mark Felt of the FBI.

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.
