NOTABLE QUOTES

Matt Margolis contributor to PJMedia: So, why did Joe Biden say, during a rally Thursday, that Democrats have a plan to make sure no one ever steals an election “again”?

Emily Crane reporter for the New York Post: President Joe Biden will use his bully pulpit to push Democratic messaging on the battle for the “Soul of the Nation” during a prime-time address later this week ahead of the midterm elections. Biden is scheduled to deliver the GOP-bashing speech outside the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia on Thursday, the White House said.

Jean-Pierre White House Press Secretary said on August 29,2022: “The extreme MAGA agenda is a threat to the rule of law.”

Shawn Fleetwood writes for The Federalist: Whether Republican voters like to admit it, McConnell and the GOP establishment have looked down on them — and continue to do so — with utter disdain. Such is the reason why any Republican candidate not specifically chosen by party leadership must be both delegitimized and destroyed. No matter the cost, the establishment simply cannot allow the base of the party to disrupt its decades-long hold on power.

Dan Gelernter contributor to American Greatness: Remember the real system of checks and balances: It isn’t between different parts of the federal government; it’s between federal government and state governments. That was supposed to be our guarantee of limited government. Without that counterbalance, there’s nothing to stop the federal government from running away with the whole show. It’s time for the states to do their part.

Jordan Schachtel investigative journalist: The American military is being comprehensively disarmed to prop up the Biden Administration’s proxy war against Russia, and in the process of their pursuit of this skirmish, billions of dollars of weapons and aid are moving into a country with zero accounting or transparency mechanisms.

J.B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: Satirist Sol Luckman defines “banana republic” in his irreverent glossary, The Angel’s Dictionary, as a “lawless society where the monkeys rule.”   Looking around the United States today, it’s hard to say we don’t fit his meaning.

Mattias Desmet’s Substack: In modern times, the explosive proliferation of mass surveillance technology led to new and previously unimaginable means for the manipulation of the masses. And emerging technological advances promise a completely new set of manipulation techniques, where the mind is materially manipulated through technological devices inserted in the human body and brain. At least that’s the plan. It’s not clear yet to what extent the mind will cooperate.

WND Staff: “That this child’s parents both happen to be ‘trans’ or ‘queer’ is no surprise to me. They are forcing their own ideological ideas onto their innocent baby,” Watson said. “As with the social contagion among vulnerable children, we’re seeing more and more parents with Münchausen syndrome by proxy. It’s not the kids who are trans – it’s the parents who want them to be trans.”

Georgi Boorman contributor to The Federalist: If young adults can make permanent, major changes to their bodies, they can repay the money they borrowed to go to college.

Helen Andrews contributor to The American Mind: Obviously there are women today in America who are trying to have it all, and many appear to be doing so successfully, at least insofar as they have both demanding careers and children. But look more closely at those households, and almost invariably you’ll see that behind every woman who is balancing work and family, there is an army of low-paid labor, immigrant cleaning ladies, nannies who are paid cash under the table, Door Dash delivery men who deliver the meals that mom never had time to cook. It’s no coincidence that the vast increase in female workforce participation has coincided with the reappearance of something that the more egalitarian America of the early 20th century did not have, and that is a servant class.

Washington Free Beacon Staff: Post-World War II, reporter Dan Zak writes, lawns started to signal “privilege” and “power.” Now, though, “the planet has accelerated its revolt against us,” leading to an “anti-lawn” movement that sees lawns as “waste,” “disregard,” and “zombie Boomerism.”

Mattias Desmet: The Psychology of Totalitarianism

At the end of February 2020, the global village began to shake on its foundations. The world was presented with a foreboding crisis, the consequences of which were incalculable. In a matter of weeks, everyone was gripped by the story of a virus—a story that was undoubtedly based on facts. But on which ones? […] The unimaginable became reality: we witnessed the abrupt pivot of nearly every country on earth to follow China’s example and place huge populations of people under de facto house arrest, a situation for which the term “lockdown” was coined. […]  It didn’t stop there. We also saw a remarkable transfer of power. Expert virologists were called upon as Orwell’s pigs—the smartest animals on the farm—to replace the unreliable politicians. They would run the animal farm with accurate (“scientific”) information. But these experts soon turned out to have quite a few common, human flaws. In their statistics and graphs they made mistakes that even “ordinary” people would not easily make. It went so far that, at one point, they counted all deaths as corona deaths, including people who had died of, say, heart attacks. Nor did they live up to their promises. […]  Some people began to nurture suspicions. How is it possible that these experts make mistakes that even laymen wouldn’t make? Aren’t they scientists, the kind of people who took us to the moon and gave us the internet? They can’t be that stupid, can they? What is their endgame? […]  Totalitarianism is not a historical coincidence. It is the logical consequence of mechanistic thinking and the delusional belief in the omnipotence of human rationality.

Lyman & Lehr: What Would Global Decarbonization Actually Cost?

As those who write frequently on climate policy issues, we are often asked, “What will decarbonization cost?” Decarbonization is the term used to refer to effectively eliminate emissions of greenhouse gases, usually measured in terms of carbon dioxide equivalent, allegedly to stop human-caused global warming. In practical terms, that means ending use of hydrocarbons (oil, natural gas, and coal), and the energy services provided by them. According to the agreement reached at the United Nations COP25 conference in Paris in 2015, the goal is to achieve decarbonization by 2050. […]  This is all very silly to consider. A better question might be how much life on earth would be lost on the way to eliminating fossil fuels. Certainly, all medical facilities could not function without hundreds of critical products derived from petroleum. How long would the public be willing to put up with the life their ancestors left behind in the middle of the 19th century, think 1850?

CLIMATE EMERGENCY: IT’S POLITICAL

Mayer: How climate policy fuelled our energy crisis

From the Climate Change Act to Net Zero, green policies have throttled our energy supplies. […]  The idea behind Net Zero is simple. It stems from the scientific observation that at current rates of global CO2 emissions, temperatures will continue to rise. Net greenhouse-gas emissions, principally CO2, will have to be reduced should global temperatures rise beyond our means to adapt to them. However, we shouldn’t confuse Net Zero the idea with Net Zero as an ideology. […]  The total decarbonisation of society, as demanded by Net Zero ideologues, would encompass all of our industry, agriculture, transport and buildings. It depends on trillions of events and decisions somehow coming into alignment at the right time. Trying to control so many unpredictable variables would be too ambitious even for Stalin. Yet in the UK we are expected to believe our parliament, which has spent 70-odd years failing to build an airport runway, can guarantee ecotopia in under 30 years. […]  Green ideologues approach global warming like it is still the Bronze Age, asking us to make symbolic sacrifices to appease the climate gods.

Catenacci: Harrison Ford frequent flier on private jets despite climate change activism

Harrison Ford, a famous Hollywood actor, has frequently traveled via private jet in recent months despite his well-known climate change activism. Ford’s private jet, a multimillion-dollar Cessna Citation Sovereign, has made at least eight trips stretching roughly 5,284 miles and emitting about 35 metric tons of carbon dioxide in less than two months, according to data from ADS-B Exchange and Celebrity Jets. Ford, however, has made regular appearances at global climate conferences, calling upon individuals and government leaders to support efforts to reduce emissions and prevent disastrous global warming.

[…]   The longest tracked flight was a 1,203-mile trek from Wichita, Kansas, to Hawthorne. That trip alone burned seven metric tons of carbon. A representative for Ford didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Jayaraj: How do climate doomsayers explain the current state of Arctic ice?

With ice coverage for July and August remaining above the ten-year average of 2010–20, the extent of summer sea ice in the Arctic has surprised experts who once predicted that such levels would be impossible. This stands in stark contrast to the dominant climate narrative that predicts the dwindling of summer ice in the Arctic.  Some politicians had even claimed that parts of the Arctic would be ice-free by now.

Washington Free Beacon Staff: The Libs Are Coming After Your Lawns

The Washington Post in a Wednesday story attacked the concept of lawns as problematic amid global warming. Post-World War II, reporter Dan Zak writes, lawns started to signal “privilege” and “power.” Now, though, “the planet has accelerated its revolt against us,” leading to an “anti-lawn” movement that sees lawns as “waste,” “disregard,” and “zombie Boomerism.” The story comes as employees of Los Angeles’s Department of Water and Power, nicknamed “the water police,” patrol the streets to enforce city water restrictions, particularly on “lush, green lawns, maintained with automatic sprinklers,” AFP reported.

BIDEN’S STASI

Young: Biden admin says ‘special master’ not needed because FBI has already reviewed seized Mar-a-Lago docs

The Justice Department responded Monday to a federal judge’s order to hold a hearing this week in order to determine if she will appoint a special master to independently review the documents the FBI took from former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on August 8. According to the Washington Post, the Justice Department prosecutors said they already appointed an FBI “filter team” that “identified a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information, completed its review of those materials, and is in the process of following the procedures.” […]  On Saturday, US District Judge Aileen M. Cannon from the Southern District of Florida wrote in her preliminary order, “Pursuant to Rule 53(b) (1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Court’s inherent authority, and without prejudice to the parties’ objections, the Court hereby provides notice of its preliminary intent to appoint a special master in this case.”

And there it is. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice finally admitted in a Monday court filing that FBI agents seized “potentially contain[ing] attorney-client privileged information” in the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. “Potentially client privileged”?

U.S. SUPREME COURT

Gelernter: Government Explained

The Supreme Court ruined America. Here’s how. You may remember your civics class showing a diagram of the three coequal branches of government and explaining what each one does: The legislative branch passes laws, the executive branch is responsible for implementing those laws, and the judicial branch adjudicates legal disputes. Since that is no longer the way our government works, I have done my own diagram illustrating the federal government in 2022: . . . […]  You’ll notice that we still have three branches of government, but their purpose has changed dramatically. The legislative branch, which formerly passed laws, now has no responsibilities whatsoever. Their members simply sit around for 30 or 40 years, holding press conferences and collecting money. The executive branch, which was supposed to implement laws the legislature passed, now does all the legislating itself in the form of regulation. […]  The judicial branch was supposed to be the umpire in legal disputes. America’s highest court, the Supreme Court, . . .

2020 STOLLEN ELECTION

Margolis: Whoa, Did Biden Admit Elections Have Been Stolen?

For nearly two years now, the left has insisted that elections are safe and secure. Anyone who even suggested otherwise was a dangerous election denier—a threat to democracy! If you said the 2020 election was stolen or rigged, then you might have found yourself banned from social media.

So, why did Joe Biden say, during a rally Thursday, that Democrats have a plan to make sure no one ever steals an election “again”?

Malloch & Capaldi: What Is to Be Done?

America is facing its most serious national crisis since the Civil War, and it is not helpful to pretend otherwise. In the wake of the contentious 2020 presidential election and the January 6 fiasco, we should not expect there will be any kind of spontaneous national unity or that we can or should go about our business as if nothing fundamental has changed. America is a deeply divided nation, and the sooner we recognize and deal with it, the better off we’ll be. What’s most appalling is the way we are told to ignore the evidence we can see with our own eyes, hear with our own ears, and reason with our own minds. We are told to ignore all contradictions and disregard basic methodological consistency. We find it astonishing that anyone can still say there is no evidence of election fraud at this late date. But this “truth” has to be put alongside all the other “truths” the mainstream media has dictated over the last few years and even prior to the 2016 election, from the Russian collusion hoax to two impeachments, and now an unlawful raid of a former president’s residence. The evidence of fraud is abundant, and no matter how much the Democrats and their allies spin it, that evidence continues to accumulate. […]  A Dire Prognosis

The following seems most likely to us. We pray we are wrong. Fascism could become triumphant. China’s combination of party-market-state is the new future all over the world. The future of the United States consists of fabricated race wars and disintegration. China replaces the United States as the world’s hegemon. Beijing, and radical Islamists, are in the best position to take advantage of Western disintegration. Western Europe becomes . . . […]  What Is To Be Done?  Does 2020-2024 mark the death of American culture? Is there some way to claw it back? […] The New Politics It is important not to continue to play the old game while attempting to establish a new one. Hence, there is no point in trying to reform the Republican Party. We need a renewed political party or one that invites former Republicans, as well as perceptive independents and Democrats, to join. Ousting the RINOs is the only way to save and recast the true Republican Party. What would be its features?

Marshall: Pennsylvania Abruptly Adds Mail-In Ballot Application To Voter Registration Form Mid-Election Cycle

On Aug. 19, the Department of State combined the originally separate applications — voter registration and mail-in ballot — into one new form just 11 weeks before the general election. While election officials say the change was made to simplify the process, county election officials are concerned the new form will create chaos and undermine voter confidence.

The Center Square Staff: Wisconsin places inactive voters back on rolls, key lawmaker calls it ‘mind-boggling’

“Why we are returning anyone to the rolls in a state where anyone can vote as long as you have a voter ID is mind-boggling,” said Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls. The Elections Commission never responded to questions from The Center Square as to how many voters are being reactivated, or how the commission chose the voters being added back to the MyVote system. It did say how many will remain inactive.

McCotter: GOP, REMEMBER THE MAXIM!’  Lose Your Base, Lose Your Race’

The Left would have you believe that one of the Republican/conservative movement’s greatest triumphs is the worst thing that ever happened to us. The Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision that rightfully returned the issue of abortion back to the states has been cited as the reason the Democrats’ dismal mid-term election prospects have suddenly brightened.  Thus, despite all the polling to the contrary, the Left’s message is that abortion, not the recession, is the number one issue for voters who, again despite the polling, overwhelming support abortion on demand through the entire nine months of a pregnancy. Of course, the Left knows better; but gullible Pro-life Republican candidates who don’t know better will lose the respect and support of their voters for appearing squeamish or worse on the issue; lose winnable seats; and help put the GOP’s anticipated recapture of the U.S. House and Senate in jeopardy – which is exactly the point of the Left’s “abortion is everything” messaging tactic. No strangers to purges, the Left has designed what it hopes will be a win-win narrative, one that exacerbates the internal divisions within their opponents’ party; and advances their own radical agenda on abortion.  The Democrats, in conjunction with their media cohorts, argue that abortion without restrictions is the overwhelming position of Americans; and that any GOP candidate who doesn’t agree, will be ignominiously defeated.

Fleetwood: Yes, Mitch McConnell Would Rather Lose The Senate Than His Leadership Status

Amajor Republican political action committee backed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is pulling its funding from the crucial battleground state of Arizona, according to a new report. As revealed by Politico, “The Senate Leadership Fund [SLF], which is aligned with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is scrapping roughly $8 million in ads — about half of its initial Arizona reservation — that were supposed to start in the early fall,” with the super PAC now set to begin airing ads in Arizona in early October. “In November [Republican Senate nominee Blake] Masters will face Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.), who already enjoys a heavy financial advantage down the stretch,” the report reads. “The super PAC’s move will exacerbate that Kelly edge as Republicans seek to net the one seat needed to take back Senate control.”

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT

Unruh: Warning: Your iPhone video of Mt. Rushmore ‘could land you in jail’

The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression has released a statement warning that a new court ruling from the D.C. Circuit Court poses a massive threat to the First Amendment. And you. “Visiting D.C.? Planning to take video at the Lincoln Memorial for your YouTube channel? Not so fast. Thanks to the National Park Service and the D.C. Circuit Court, that video on your iPhone could land you in jail if your YouTube viewership generates any revenue,” the FIRE statement warns. The problem comes from a decision in Price v.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING FOREIGN POLICY

Black Hole: as billions in American arms and aid enter Ukraine, US officials receive hand written receipts

Ukraine is consistently ranked as one of the most corrupt governments in all of Europe. Given that reality, it might not come as much of a surprise that Kiev has no functioning mechanism to track the massive amount of inflows of American weapons and aid into the country. With tens of billions of dollars aid money allocated to Ukraine, and untold billions in military equipment shipped across the border, when U.S. arms and aid enter Ukraine, it enters into a black hole. Given the notorious corruption in Kiev, perhaps that’s all by design. Where do all of the weapons and aid end up, exactly?

Arama: Three AM Call? Biden Can’t Even Take Urgent Calls From World Leader

Joe Biden has been missing for most of the month of August, on a vacation between Delaware and Kiawah, South Carolina. Before that, he was 13 days in isolation due to COVID. So he has been mostly out of the public eye for a long time until the end of this week. But he was also blowing off his responsibilities in the process, according to a new report. Israel has been, justifiably, concerned by the insane effort of the Biden administration to revive the Iran nuclear deal. […]  The Israeli Prime Minister has been trying to get Joe Biden on the phone to talk about what the U.S. is doing but Joe Biden is just blowing him off either because he’s completely absent or avoiding talking to them.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Bergman: China Threatens to Destroy Elon Musk’s Starlink

Chinese military researchers are threatening that Musk’s Starlink satellites must be destroyed. The problem, however, does not appear so much to be the fear of collision, but rather that China believes that Starlink could be used for military purposes and thereby threaten what China calls its national security.

“[A] combination of soft and hard kill methods should be adopted to make some Starlink satellites lose their functions and destroy the constellation’s operating system.” — Five senior scientists in China’s defense industry, led by Ren Yuanzhen, a researcher with the Beijing Institute of Tracking and Telecommunications, under the People Liberation Army’s (PLA’s) Strategic Support Force, by Stephen Chen, South China Morning Post, May 25,2022

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA REGIME: TRANSFORMING THE U.S. MILITARY

Spoehr: The Rise of Wokeness in the Military

Complaints by veteran soldiers about younger generations who lack discipline and traditional values are as old as war itself. Grizzled veterans in the Greek phalanx, Roman legions, and Napoleon’s elite corps all believed that the failings of the young would be the ruin of their armies. This is not the chief worry of grizzled American veterans today. The largest threat they see by far to our current military is the weakening of its fabric by radical progressive (or “woke”) policies being imposed, not by a rising generation of slackers, but by the very leaders charged with ensuring their readiness. Wokeness in the military is being imposed by elected and appointed leaders in the White House, Congress, and the Pentagon who have little understanding of the purpose, character, traditions, and requirements of the institution they are trying to change. The push for it didn’t begin in the last two years under the Biden administration—nor will it automatically end if a non-woke administration is elected in 2024. Wokeness in the military has become ingrained. And unless the policies that flow from it are illegal or directly jeopardize readiness, senior military leaders have little alternative but to comply.

Woke ideology undermines military readiness in various ways. It undermines cohesiveness by emphasizing differences based on race, ethnicity, and sex. It undermines leadership authority by introducing questions about whether promotion is based on merit or quota requirements. It leads to military personnel serving in specialties and areas for which they are not qualified or ready. And it takes time and resources away from training activities and weapons development that contribute to readiness.

Arama: WH Attack on MAGA People Gets Even More Divisive and Dangerous

As we previously reported, Joe Biden and his team are increasing the tactic of trying to demonize millions of MAGA people. Biden called people who supported “Make America Great Again” “semi-fascist,” said he didn’t respect them, and even called them violent. “The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy,” Biden said at a rally in Maryland last Thursday, referring to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. “They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace, embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.” Then his White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre doubled down on that.Now, they’re upping that attack to even another level. They’re trying to criminalize their political opposition calling the “extreme MAGA agenda” a “threat to the rule of law.” Can any of these reporters bother to ask them what is “extreme” about making America great again?

Analysts Begin Quantifying “Some Pain for Americans” as Monetary Policy is Positioned to Support Green New Deal Energy Transition

The financial pundits are slowly starting to drop the pretending and discuss the bigger economic picture. However, as they tread very carefully, they are being very cautious about admitting too much. A Reuters discussion of the comments by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, starts to dip the media toe in the painful pool; yet they will not admit the Biden energy program is the source of the inflation Powell is targeting with his policy moves to shrink energy demand. Thus, the pretending continues. If you take the written words and extract the parseltongue, you can see a more fulsome picture of what is being outlined. […]  Yes, the “realignment global of alliances,” as an outcome of the western world policy to fracture global markets based on energy use.  Notice they are now starting to admit what we have discussed here for over a year? “The global economy seems to be on the cusp of a historic change as many of the aggregate supply tailwinds that have kept a lid on inflation look set to turn into headwinds,” Agustín Carstens, the head of the Bank of International Settlements, said. […]  Indeed, we are only now on the front side “cusp” of the transition which will force the continued lowering of economic activity within the aligned nations for more than a generation or two.   All economic activity, essentially all human activity, will have to be stalled and reduced until the levels of sustainable energy production can catch up to the levels of energy needed for the now smaller economy.

A national security lawyer tapped by President Joe Biden to lead his Intelligence Advisory Board was one of 50 former intelligence officials to claim in an open letter that the October 2020 publication of Hunter Biden’s emails appeared to be part of a “Russian information operation.” Jeremy Bash served in several roles during the Obama administration, including CIA Chief of Staff, Defense Department Chief of Staff, and House Intelligence Committee Chief Counsel. He currently serves as Managing Director of Beacon Global Strategies and as an advisor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Shurk: Three Signs We’re in a Banana Republic

Clearly, Americans “get” that we’re living in a “banana republic” today. Just consider these three telltale signs:  (1) Manipulation of language and mandatory leftist religion: The political Left’s most potent weapon is its penchant for undermining the meaning of words.  For decades Democrats have branded anything antithetical to their worldview as “hateful” and banned “offending” viewpoints from civic culture altogether.  When “authorities” deconstruct biological sex so preposterously that they can’t even tell the difference between boys and girls, though, they’ve lost the plot.  One school board in Wisconsin is so fearful of the language police crashing through its doors that it has replaced all references to “girls” with sterilized language concerning a “person with a vulva.”  When “teachers” are afraid to say “girl” out loud, it’s banana republic time!  Joe Biden and his communist brigades have . . .

Elordi: 3.8 Million Renters Likely To Be Evicted In Next Two Months

About 8.5 million people are behind on rent as of the end of August, according to Census Bureau data. Of those renters, around 3.8 million say they are somewhat or very likely to be evicted over the next two months. Meanwhile, rents continue to tick up and topped $2,000 a month in June for the first time on record. Before the pandemic, rents have increased by almost 25% and 15% in just the past year, according to Zillow. Evictions are spiking in major cities across the country as well. In Tampa, Florida, evictions were 52% above average in August, according to the Eviction Lab at Princeton University. In Houston, they were 90% above average, and in Minneapolis-St. Paul they were 94% above average.

Zeisloft: Federal Reserve To Launch New Instant Payment Service

FedNow, which the central bank has been developing for the past several years, is intended as a “flexible, neutral platform that supports a broad variety of instant payments” such that consumers can immediately send money through their financial institutions, according to a description from the central bank. Federal Reserve Vice Chair Lael Brainard said during a speech to developers that FedNow will “transform the way everyday payments are made throughout the economy.” […]  The move comes as the central bank also considers the creation of a “central bank digital currency” (CBDC) that would work as an alternative to other digital assets — including cryptocurrencies, which are virtual coins protected from counterfeiting via encryption, and stablecoins, which attempt to peg themselves to another asset such as gold or the dollar.

Turley: Wharton Study: Biden Tuition Debt Forgiveness Could Cost $1 Trillion

What is so troubling is that, not only did Biden circumvention Congress with the constitutional control of the purse, but this plan has divided the nation. While supported by a majority, there is intense opposition to the plan and its costs. The polling also shows conflicting concerns and support from the public as they learn more about the plan. A new Emerson College Polling national survey found that 36% believe the loan handout is too much and 35% believe that it is just right. Thirty percent think it is not enough.  […] The celebration of members of Congress over the circumvention of their institution is hardly news. Members like Sen. Jeff Merkley (D, Ore.) have been calling on Biden to just act unilaterally. When Madison described the essence of his constitutional vision of the separation of powers in Federalist 51, he declared “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition.” No branch is supposed to have enough power to govern alone.

Spencer: And Now, the Left Moves to Normalize Pedophilia

It isn’t as if we weren’t warned. Many people have observed for years now that the total exclusion of morality from the public square, and the refusal to declare that any behavior was wrong in itself, would lead to the normalization of all manner of abhorrent behavior. Such warnings seem almost quaint now, with drag queens in primary schools and toddlers being encouraged to undergo radical body mutilation. In this insane environment, it is no surprise whatsoever that the Left is now pushing to make pedophilia as normal as a walk in the park. The assault on traditional values is total and unyielding. No quarter will be given. […]  Galbreath claims that the term minor-attracted person “simply means that the person has an enduring sexual or romantic attraction to minors. They have not chosen this attraction… you don’t get to choose to be heterosexual or gay, and you don’t get to choose to be a minor-attracted person.” It’s something the poor dears can’t help, you see. Galbreath doesn’t seem to have any interest, meanwhile, in the plight of people who don’t choose to become the victims of pedophiles. They don’t choose, either, but apparently they don’t deserve any consideration.

WND Staff: 10-year-old ‘trans’ model celebrated, plans surgery at age 16

The story of a celebrated child model who is male, but poses as a female and hopes to have transgender surgery at age 16, is stirring the waters of the transgender controversy. Because its circumstances show the impact of the “woke” culture on children. “Both of my parents are trans-masculine. We are one big queer family,” explains a profile for Neolla McMaher at an online LGBT community site. He is attracting attention because he modeled, as a girl, at New York Fashion Week representing the Trans’ Clothing Co. brand.

Eugyppius: Exhaustive study of German mortality data finds excess deaths tightly correlated with mass vaccination

Excess mortality in Germany 2020–2022 is a preprint by Christof Kuhbandner (a psychologist at Regensburg) and Matthias Reitzner (a statistician at Osnabrück) that applies sophisticated actuarial analysis to the publicly available all-cause mortality data provided by the German government. It turns out that when you account for historical mortality trends, the virus no longer looks so dangerous, and the vaccines no longer look so great. From the abstract: . . .

Crane: Top FBI agent resigns amid claims he shielded Hunter Biden from probe: report

Timothy Thibault, an FBI assistant special agent in charge, was allegedly forced out after he was accused of political bias in his handling of probes involving President Biden’s son, sources told the Washington Times on Monday. The agent was escorted out of the field office by at least two “headquarters-looking types” last Friday, the sources said. […]  Thibault, a 25-year-veteran, had already been on leave for a month after the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), started raising concerns about whistleblower claims the FBI had obstructed its own investigations into the first son.

As Gateway previously reported, in April, the Satanic Temple filed a lawsuit against the school district for refusing to allow them to host an “After School Satan Club” at the elementary school. The organization’s legal team argued that the school violated the First Amendment by allowing some groups to host events and not others.

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.
