Brian Parsons contributor to American Thinker: Seven hundred years before the birth of Christ, it was written of Christ in the Book of Isaiah, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us, a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder.”  There are two truths here that should not be missed.  The first is that Christ alone is the singular ruler to have been born with a death sentence and overcome the process.  The second is that we are reminded that regardless of our present circumstances, the ultimate authority rests on the shoulders of the Almighty.  In the meantime, we endure the process, hopeful for the next but confident that our work is never finished.

Sundance writing for The Last Refuge explains what is in Twitter release #8: Barack Obama established the partnership between government and social media, and within this release Twitter is protecting Barack Obama. This release is so over-the-top-obvious in its intent to protect the Obama legacy, that the nature of the DoS/DoD admissions within it become almost secondary.


Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage: America last. Omnibus bills are a disaster and this $1.7 trillion pork sandwich is no exception. It does however secure the border. Of every other Islamic country in the Middle East. In another section, the behemoth bill requires $410 million to “remain available” to reimburse Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Oman for “enhanced border security.” At least $150 million of that must go to Jordan, according to the bill.

Col. (ret.) Douglas McGregor contributor to The American Conservative warned: Disaster wrapped in rhetoric is not the way to save the people of Ukraine. The war in Ukraine is not a Call of Duty fantasy. It is an enlargement of the human tragedy that NATO’s eastward expansion created. The victims do not live in North America. They live in a region that most Americans can’t find on a map. Washington urged the Ukrainians to fight. Now Washington must urge them to stop.

Biden’s Department of Homeland Security announced: As COVID-19 restrictions continue to decrease nationwide, increased access to commercial and government facilities and the rising number of mass gatherings could provide increased opportunities for individuals looking to commit acts of violence to do so, often with little or no warning.


Edward Ring contributor to American Greatness: There is no chance that California’s reparations task force’s scheme can be carried out equitably, nor any possibility it will do anything but cause harm to race relations and the black community. This is what Gavin Newsom is flirting with. But as it lurches forward, with Newsom’s fingerprints all over it, it may help him win an early 2024 primary in a Southern state. Perhaps that’s all that matters.

Toby Muse, the author of the 2020 book Kilo: Inside the Deadliest Cocaine Cartels: “We’re living in the golden age of cocaine. Cocaine is reaching corners of the planet that have never seen it before, because there is so much of the drug.”

Ben Whedon is a reporter for  Just the News: It’s sheer lethality has prompted a growing movement to designate fentanyl a weapon of mass destruction.


Daniel Greenfield contributor to Frontpage: Why do so many girls hate the idea of becoming women? Feminism spent two generations destroying any sense of joy that girls had about femininity. The political and academic poisons quickly made their way into the entertainment industry and lifestyle publications. Girls have been told over and over again that they need to be more like boys. Is it any wonder that they’re trying to become boys at such record rates? The transgender movement is the dead end of feminism.

Emma Hurt reporter for Axios: After raising more than $100 million in her second bid to be Georgia governor, the Stacey Abrams campaign owes more than $1 million in debt to vendors,  two-time campaign manager Lauren Groh-Wargo confirmed to Axios.

Elon Musk head of the social media platform Twitter: “I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.


Katje: If You Invested $1,000 In Donald Trump NFTs, Here’s How Much You’d Have Now

What Happened: Trump announced the launch of an NFT collection called Trump Digital Trading Cards. The NFTs came at a price of $99 and could be purchased with Ethereum(CRYPTO: ETH) or a credit card. The collection sold out on Thursday.  While many celebrities and even President Joe Biden mocked the NFT launch, the collection has soared to the top of the NFT rankings on NFT marketplace Opensea.

Turley: A Case of Hope Over Experience: The J6 Referral Falls Short of a Credible Criminal Case

This week the January 6th Committee voted to make criminal referrals to the Justice Department, including the proposed indictment of former President Donald Trump.  However, the Committee’s splashy finale lacked any substantial new evidence to make a compelling criminal case against former President Donald Trump. The Committee repackaged largely the same evidence that it has previously put forward over the past year. That is not enough. Indeed, the reliance on a new videotape of former Trump aide Hope Hicks seems a case of putting “hope over experience” in the criminal Justice system.

While still based largely on the failure to act, Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Cal.) insisted that “if that’s not criminal, nothing is.” The opposite may be true from a First Amendment perspective. If the failure to act is criminal, it is hard to see what would not be criminal under this standard. After members like Schiff, again, promised new evidence to support criminal charges, the Committee continued its pattern of rehashing previously known evidence with network-quality videotapes. The failure of the Committee to offer any new and direct evidence of criminal conduct was obvious at the outset.

Sundance: House Democrats Vote to Publicly Release Donald Trump Private IRS Tax Filings, Setting New Precedent That Can Target Any American Taxpayer

Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee used an arcane law, well over 100 years old that permits the Chairman Committee, Chair Richard Neal (D-Mass.), to review the personal tax filings of any American, in order to obtain Donald Trump’s personal tax filings from the IRS. However, even in the hands of the committee, strict privacy laws still applied to the tax filings unless the committee interceded and voted to make them public.  That’s exactly what the Democrats in the committee did today with a party-line vote. The Democrats have set a new precedent in congress for any party in power to demand the tax filings of any individual American and then release them to the public.  When the Republicans take control of the committee in January 2023, will they demand the Tax returns of Barack Obama, or Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, or Mark Zuckerberg, or Chuck Schumer, or Jeffrey Epstein, or Nancy & Paul Pelosi and then make them public? [Note: Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Brendan Boyle said the public would first see a summary of the documents before getting them in their full forms. ] Read more:https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/12/21/house-democrats-vote-to-publicly-release-donald-trump-private-irs-tax-filings-setting-new-precedent-that-can-target-any-american-taxpayer/

Revolver Investigates Disturbing Link Between DHS and the Domestic War on MAGA

In a move that is Orwellian even by the current year’s dystopian standards, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security on Monday issued a heightened terrorist threat assessment centered around “online misinformation:” The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. That’s right, folks, the Ministry of Truth is officially here, under the auspices of the government’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency: . . . […]  Even more disturbingly, the DHS announcement cites as a potential national security threat the lifting of Covid restrictions such as lockdowns. After all, when the cattle are allowed outside of their homes without restriction, there’s a greater likelihood of a terrorist attack! […] Lifting Covid restrictions is a security threat, keeping restrictions in place is a security threat — everything is a security threat so long as the American people dare to question their government on matters related to Covid, election integrity, or anything else for that matter.

Mills: Bombshells You Might Have Missed About the FBI’s Censorship and Election Meddling

Were these rogue agents operating in violation of the FBI’s long-standing policy against interfering in elections? It now appears that the FBI’s censorship of American citizens enjoyed the approval and ratification of FBI Director Christopher Wray himself as the FBI responded to the scandal with this dismissive remark: . . .  […]  Stop for a moment to parse this bureaucratic-speak. Under what authority does the FBI censor non-U.S. citizens in our domestic forums? Censorship injures the rights of the listeners as much as the speakers. Can the FBI legally prevent citizens access to Britain’s Daily Mail or the Russian media outlet RT just because they originate from a foreign source? Legal precedent suggests that the First Amendment includes guarantees of citizen’s access to foreign-based speech. This has become increasingly important because accessing foreign press is sometimes the only way to find reporting on issues that the FBI-influenced domestic media would rather not cover. Don’t we need to know what foreigners are saying about America in order to make informed election decisions? The permanent domestic security apparatus, led by the FBI, is not terribly concerned about whether information it sought to suppress might be true.

Durden: DOJ Subpoenaed Google To Access Personal Info Of House Staffers During Russia-Trump Probe: Report

The Department of Justice (DOJ) allegedly used grand jury subpoenas to secretly access personal information belonging to House Republican staffers – including email communications, residential addresses, and cellphone data – while Republican lawmakers simultaneously worked to obtain evidence that the FBI’s investigation into the now disproven Trump–Russia collusion narrative was false, according to a report by Just the News. The subpoenas were obtained by Just the News, and were issued at a time when then-chair of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) struggled to get the FBI and DOJ to hand over documents to the committee while he sought to establish that the allegations made against former President Donald Trump were being driven by the infamous Steele dossier. […]  The subpoena for Patel shows that the FBI and DOJ requested a string of information from Google, including subscriber names, screen names, and user names; addresses including mailing addresses, residential addresses, business addresses, and email addresses, local and long-distance telephone connection records, records of session times and durations, length of service and types of service utilized, and personal telephone numbers. It also requested information pertaining to the “means and source of payment for such service (including any credit card or bank account number) and billing records.” Read more: https://12ft.io/proxy?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.zerohedge.com%2Fpolitical%2Fdoj-subpoenaed-google-access-personal-info-house-staffers-during-russia-trump-probe


(Another America Last proponent) Mitch McConnell, “Providing Financial Support for Ukraine is the #1 Priority of The United States and Republicans Right Now”…

Nope, it’s not the border crisis and millions of people unlawfully flowing into the United States.  Nope, it’s not the collapsing economy or massive inflation that crushing the working class.  Nope, it’s not the skyrocketing cost of fuel, energy, oil and gasoline as the direct result of catastrophic energy policy….

(Leadership showdown) Husebo: McCarthy Supplants McConnell as the Grim Reaper: House GOP Leader Joins Threats to Block Legislation from Any Senate Republican Who Votes for Omnibus

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Tuesday joined 13 Republicans who vowed to tank any priorities of GOP senators who vote for the 4,155 page omnibus bill that was negotiated with Democrats before a new Republican majority could take control of the House. Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Scott Perry (R-PA), and Andy Biggs (R-AZ), along with nine other conservatives House members, signed a letter Tuesday promising to block any priorities of the Republican senators who rushed to support the omnibus deal with Democrats just days before Congress leaves town for Christmas. “At the very least, due respect for Americans who elected would call for not passing a ‘lame duck’ bill just days before members fly home for Christmas and two weeks before a new Republican majority is sworn in for the 118th Congress,” the conservative members wrote. “Senate Republicans have 41 votes necessary to stop this and should do so now.” […]  The omnibus bill includes $773 billion in domestic spending with $5 billion worth of earmarks and $45 billion for Ukraine’s border defense. The White House only asked for $37 billion for that item, far less than McConnell and Democrats have budgeted in the bill. [Note: Congressional appropriators dropped the $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus spending bill at 1:30 A.M. ET Tuesday, giving lawmakers days to read it before the government shuts down Friday. The bill would fund the government through September 2023 and would boost defense spending by $76 billion, totaling $858 billion. Domestic spending is $773 billion. [NOTE:  Senators voted 70-25 to adopt the motion to proceed to a shell bill.]  more: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/12/20/mccarthy-supplants-mcconnell-grim-reaper-house-gop-leader-joins-threats-block-legislation-senate-republican-who-votes-omnibus/

Ballasy: $1.7T spending bill stuffed with giveaways for favored groups from lobster industry to LGBTQIA+

GOP Rep. Dan Bishop identified $575 million in the bill for “family planning/reproductive health” in areas where population growth “threatens biodiversity.” The $1.7 trillion, 4,155-page omnibus bill that congressional negotiators have unveiled is stuffed with pork and shouldn’t be passed, according to a group of conservative GOP lawmakers and the Heritage Foundation. […]  The legislation includes $2.3 million for informing the public that President Biden is taking action to cancel up to $20,000 of student loan debt for qualified borrowers. Biden’s student loan forgiveness program, which he implemented without congressional authority, is currently on hold pending Supreme Court review. According to the Heritage Foundation, a slew of earmarks can be found in the bill, including $1.2 million for “LGBTQIA+ Pride Centers,” $1.2 million allocated to “services for DACA recipients” at San Diego Community College, $1 million for Zora’s House in Ohio, which is defined as a “co-working and community space” for “women and gender-expansive people of color,” and $477,000 for “antiracism virtual labs” at the Equity Institute in Rhode Island. There is also $3.6 million for the Michelle Obama  . . .[…]  Language of the Electoral Count Act reform is contained in the full text of the spending bill. The changes, if adopted, would define the vice president’s role as ministerial in electoral vote certification. {Note: CNN reported that the 4000 page bill will only have 2 days for review before it is voted on.] Read so much more:https://justthenews.com/government/congress/17t-omnibus-bill-stuffed-pork-and-gop-lawmakers-should-oppose-it-conservatives

Key: GOP Rep. Comer Calls to ‘Halt’ All FBI Funding Until Testifying on ‘Cover-Up of the Hunter Biden Laptop Story’

You know, one way we could get the FBI in front of the committee really quickly is say, we’re not giving you a penny until you all come down here and explain to us what this task force was. Why you told Twitter to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story when you knew darn well it was true.

Revolver.news: Democrat Hatchet Man Norm Eisen’s Fingerprints Are All Over a Dark New Element of the Jan 6 Witch Hunt

If the Regime’s broader purpose in hyping the so-called January 6 “insurrection” is to cast all Trump supporters as de facto domestic terrorists, its more urgent and immediate purpose is to kneecap the political prospects of Trump and his allies as the 2024 elections approach. That the overhyped January 6 Committee hearings turned out to be a major ratings flop may not therefore ultimately matter, depending on the Committee’s success in pressuring its audience of one, Attorney General Merrick Garland, to pursue criminal charges against the former President.

Whedon: ‘Twitter Files’ reveal platform aided Pentagon propaganda efforts abroad

“Twitter actively assisted CENTCOM’s network going back to 2017 and as late as 2020 knew these accounts were covert/designed to deceive to manipulate the discourse, a violation of Twitter’s policies & promises.” […]  Fang contended that Twitter was fully aware of the Pentagon’s network of fake accounts and that it was slow to ban many of them. He further highlighted Twitter’s prior submissions to Congress that it worked to combat government manipulation of the platform and to shut down government-run-but-undisclosed accounts. “The U.S. propaganda network relentlessly pushed narratives against Russia, China, and other foreign countries. They accused Iran of ‘threatening Iraq’s water security and flooding the country with crystal meth,’ and of harvesting the organs of Afghan refugees,” Fang went on.

Sundance: Twitter File Release #8 – Evidence Showing Pentagon/State Dept using Twitter for Propaganda, Release Curated to Protect Barack Obama

In addition to confirming more of the basic construct behind Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop, Twitter File Release #8 also reveals that Twitter officers are carefully curating information to protect their interests.  When information is curated to protect political interests, it puts a question mark behind all prior releases.

In release #8, the basic outline is showing how the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. State Department (DoS) work with the social media platforms to amplify messaging and create specifically anonymous government accounts intended to spread propaganda globally. [Twitter File Release #8 Here]  The government then asks the platform engineering side to boost the messaging of the government accounts and use the internal tools to promote government users.  Essentially, social media propaganda. The United States intelligence apparatus was/is actively using and working with the Twitter platform to align with U.S. government interests.  The govt was coordinating, instructing, assisting and benefitting from the relationship.  Pro govt positions were amplified, and information adverse to the interests of the Pentagon and State Dept was removed, hidden, throttled.

(Canada) Kirsch: Celine Dion was disabled from a KNOWN SIDE EFFECT of the COVID vaccine (99.6% certainty)

Celine Dion finally revealed she has stiff person syndrome, which is so rare, it’s only found in 1 in a million people. Did she just get unlucky? Nope. She got vaccinated. My calculations, shown below, estimate that there is 99.6% chance it was the COVID vaccine which caused her injury. If there is any respected medical authority who thinks I’m wrong and wants to challenge me on the evidence and arguments I present below, use the Contact Me form and we’ll set up a recorded video call. […] Pfizer knew about SPS in February 2021 and the FDA knew about it on Aprile 2021. But the FDA isn’t going to warn anyone about all these side effects because that would create vaccine hesitancy. […]  I don’t know if Celine got the Pfizer vaccine or not, but the side effect profile of the other vaccines is even worse, so my arguments apply no matter what vaccine Celine got. Now lets’ look at VAERS. Guess what?

Westin: Dr. Peter McCullough explains new dangers for unvaxxed amid global COVID jab push

Dr. McCullough tells us about a new study confirming the presence of mRNA found in the breast milk of mothers who received the COVID jab, and another one showing that kissing and sexual contact “almost certainly are methods of transference.”Now, we don’t know the fate of what happens when [the mRNA-tainted breast milk] goes into the baby’s gastrointestinal tract. Is it broken down by stomach acid and other proteolytic enzymes, or does it survive? But this is very concerning,” Dr. McCullough says. As much as ever, Dr. McCullough is determined to share the dangers of COVID jabs and speak the truth about how COVID jab skeptics are still much better off never getting vaccinated, given the continued prevalence of heart damage, blood clots, and neurological damage among the jabbed.

Lucas: Legal Group Sues to Stop Voter Information From Flowing to Left-Wing Groups

Government employees in four states are violating federal laws and assisting the Left by providing voter information, a conservative legal group argues in suing those states. The Thomas More Society alleges in its lawsuits against Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that the Electronic Registration Information Center, also known as ERIC, shares voter information with at least one left-leaning nonprofit. ERIC is a centralized database designed to help states better maintain voter registration lists by catching duplicate registrations in other states. But now ERIC is tilting the scales, says a lawyer for the Thomas More Society, a conservative legal group that focuses on life, religious liberty, and election integrity. “Progressives have an advantage through information arbitrage,” Erick Kaardal, the organization’s special counsel, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview after a pretrial hearing Thursday in its suit against Minnesota. “This will change politics,” Kaardal said. “Instead of requiring candidates to move toward appealing to people in the middle, campaigns will now microtarget subgroups.” Read more:https://www.dailysignal.com/2022/12/19/legal-group-sues-to-stop-voter-information-from-flowing-to-left-wing-groups/

(March 2022) Stansell: WHAT IS ERIC? The Electronic Registration Information Center —A Dream Database for Voter Fraud

The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) is a nationwide voter data-gathering system funded by the Pew Center and an “anonymous” donor, the Soros Open Society. Designed by activists in 2014, it is a membership organization established to maintain states’ voter rolls. Please don’t misunderstand. Although required of every state by law, legitimate maintenance of voter rolls was not the intent of ERIC. Eleven blue states joined the first year, 2014. Membership was up to 22 states by 2017, which was the last year it published an annual report. By 2022, 31 states – some red and some blue! – were a part of the Center. ERIC’s advertised purpose at its outset was to provide states with a system of voter roll management. […]  Each member state is mandated by the ERIC bylaws to submit ALL details on every voter, both active and inactive, to ERIC every 60 days. Along with this, states must give overall data from their motor vehicle registration divisions. This provides ERIC the information on everyone with a driver’s license or even a learner’s permit PLUS all ID recipients, including illegals, elderly shut-ins, etc. […] Let me highlight this provision of ERIC membership from its bylaws: “Under no circumstances shall the members transmit any record indicating an individual is a non-citizen of the U.S.” This, lest you be confused about the intent of the organization. In reality, ERIC creates a left-wing voter registration drive . . .  Read more:https://100percentfedup.com/what-is-eric-the-electronic-registration-information-center-a-dream-database-for-voter-fraud/

Citizen Free Press: Kari Lake spits fire at America Fest Watch the 2:12 minute video at Twitter. Wright: The Problem With Voting Machine Certification In Arizona

Certification of voting machine systems is a Pandora’s box. There are too many unforeseen means to exploit voting machine systems, from within and without, to justify the risk of abandoning paper ballots, same-day voting, and tabulation. It’s all about ethical behavior, feel-good policies, and sleight-of-hand con jobs—passing a chicken over a pot of boiling water and calling it chicken soup. Maricopa County, Arizona, has many unresolved serious issues from the 2020 Election that raise questions about the election’s integrity and validity (here and here). The 2022 midterm results are also very troubling as well. See also, “Arizona Midterm Elections . . . Ballot Harvesting.” In my professional experience investigating financial crimes, many employers in small businesses give the same person control of the business checkbook and responsibility for reconciling the checking statement. The owners then wonder why embezzlement happens.  […]   In April 2022, Kari Lake sued Maricopa County seeking to ban electronic vote counting systems, but a federal judge rejected the case to deter “similarly baseless suits in the future” and sanctioned the plaintiff’s attorneys.

Reed: Medicaid enrollment to top 100 million

The number of Americans on Medicaid is expected to surpass 100 million as early as next month, according to a new projection from the Foundation for Government Accountability. Why it matters: The record uninsured rate — achieved through both ACA subsidies and Medicaid expansion — has been a point of pride for the Biden administration, particularly in light of stark health disparities exacerbated by the pandemic. Yes, but: The right-leaning think tank FGA points out, the record Medicaid enrollment means nearly 1 in 3 Americans will be on the federal government’s rolls.

The Center Square Staff: Citing Medicaid costs, 25 governors ask Biden to end COVID public health emergency

Twenty-five governors signed a letter asking President Joe Biden to end the federal public health emergency in April, saying Medicaid costs are costing their states millions. States received more money for Medicaid during the PHE but cannot remove anyone from the program’s rolls until either one month before the PHE ends, the month it ends or the month after it ends, according to Medicaid.gov. Biden extended the PHE to January and has not indicated when it will end. The governors said they assume the PHE will continue at least until April. The governors asked Biden for an indication as to when he would end the PHE. Twenty million people have joined the Medicaid program since the PHE began nearly three years ago, and the states are faced with additional costs, they said.

Sundance: Europe and Asia Complain the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act Doesn’t Help Their Economy Enough, Biden Working on Solution

One might think the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act would be constructed in such a manner as to help Americans by reducing inflation.  However, not only does the Inflation Reduction Act not help reduce inflation, but the climate change bill carrying the name The Inflation Reduction Act is now the cause for complaints by Europe and Asia because the falsely named spending bill doesn’t help their economy. The issue stems from the part of the climate change bill that provides a $7,5000 federal tax credit for electric vehicles.  As the bill was written the vehicles needed to be assembled in the USA with battery components mostly sourced from the U.S.A.   Europe and Asian automakers are not happy because they want their vehicles, made in Europe and Asia to benefit from the tax credit. Of course, the first thing Joe Biden does is tell Europe and Asia he will modify the rules to permit vehicles made outside the USA to benefit.  Read more:https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/12/20/europe-and-asia-complain-the-u-s-inflation-reduction-act-doesnt-help-their-economy-enough-biden-working-on-solution/

The clip, recorded on November 4, is the strongest confirmation to date the Biden administration believes there’s no hope in resuscitating the tattered deal, from which Donald Trump withdrew in 2018. […]  “President Biden, would you please announce that the JCPOA is dead?” a woman is heard asking. Biden responded, “No,” and when pressed to answer why, went on to say, “for a lot of reasons.”

(Biden’s War) Macgregor: Washington Is Prolonging Ukraine’s Suffering

Washington’s refusal to acknowledge Russia’s legitimate security interests in Ukraine and negotiate an end to this war is the path to protracted conflict and human suffering. […]  The real danger now is that Biden will soon appear on television to repeat LBJ’s performance in 1965, substituting the word “Ukraine” for “South Vietnam”:  Tonight, my fellow Americans I want to speak to you about freedom, democracy, and the struggle of the Ukrainian people for victory. No other question so preoccupies our people. No other dream so absorbs the millions who live in Ukraine and Eastern Europe… However, I am not talking about a NATO attack on Russia. Rather, I propose to send a U.S. led coalition of the willing, consisting of American, Polish, and Romanian armed forces into Ukraine, to establish the ground equivalent of a “no-fly zone.” The mission I propose is a peaceful one, to create a safe zone in the Western most portion of Ukraine for Ukrainian Forces and refugees struggling to survive Russia’s devastating attacks… Read more: https://www.theamericanconservative.com/washington-is-prolonging-ukraines-suffering/

The Post Millennial: BREAKING: Biden admin admits end of ‘remain in Mexico’ policy would lead to ‘increase’ in illegal border crossings—pushes for repeal anyway

The Biden administration responded on Tuesday to the Supreme Court’s ruling that Title 42, otherwise known as the “remain in Mexico” policy implemented under the Turmp administration to curb illegal border crossings via a health measure, will stay in place. In their response to the Supreme Court decision, lawyers for the administration said that “The government recognizes that the end of the Title 42 orders will likely lead to disruption and a temporary increase in unlawful border crossings.” “The government in no way seeks to minimize the seriousness of that problem,” lawyers wrote. “But the solution to that immigration problem cannot be to extend indefinitely a public-health measure that all now acknowledge has outlived its public-health justification.” Read more: https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-biden-admin-admits-end-of-remain-in-mexico-policy-would-lead-to-increase-in-illegal-border-crossings-pushes-for-repeal-anyway 

Whedon: Oops: Biden BLS overstated jobs numbers by more than 1 million, raising manipulation concerns

An assessment from the Philadelphia Federal Reserve has found that the Bureau of Labor Statistics dramatically overstated second quarter jobs numbers, prompting scrutiny from Republicans who have raised concerns of politically motivated manipulation of federal statistics. The BLS reported that the U.S. economy saw a net gain of 1,047,000 jobs in the second quarter, per the Washington Times, while the Philadelphia Fed contends the figure was actually a mere 10,500 jobs. Moreover, BLS data overstated employment numbers in 29 states and the District of Columbia by significant margins compared to the same metrics from the Philadelphia Fed report.

Key: CNN’s Tapper: Schumer, McConnell, Pelosi, McCarthy Protecting ‘Anti-American’ Big Tech Monopolies

CNN anchor Jake Tapper said Tuesday on his show “The Lead” that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) were protecting “anti-American” big tech monopolies.

Tapper said, “It can be more telling in what the congressional leaders left out of the massive $1.7 trillion spending bill unveiled today than what they included. I’m thinking of specifically two pieces of the bipartisan anti-trust legislation to try to rein in the big tech monopolies. One of the bills was bipartisan from Senators Amy Klobuchar and Chuck Grassley. It would stop companies like Apple, Amazon, Meta and Google, which critics say are clearly monopolies, from giving preference to their own products, and burying other products.” Read more: https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2022/12/20/cnns-tapper-schumer-mcconnell-pelosi-mccarthy-protecting-anti-american-big-tech-monopolies/

Richard: Rep. Jim Jordan responds after Biden says he will hire more Dreamers to curb inflation: ‘Hire Americans’

The Biden administration is looking to employ more migrants in the coming year to help bolster the economy, but a Republican lawmaker suggested President Biden look at hiring another group of people first: Americans. “Why not just hire AMERICANS looking for jobs?” the Ohio Republican asked in a tweet, responding to a report of the Biden administration’s new plan. […]  His plan, according to the report, will include the hiring of more so-called “Dreamers,” or  “lawfully present” recipients of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.

Key: NBC’s Ainsley: Migrants Describe No ‘Interactions with Authorities’ at Border – ‘They Just Walked Right In’

Mitchell said, “If Title 42 is lifted, officials say there’ll be a record number of 10,000 unauthorized border crossings per day. So what is the long-term solution? I mean, you’ve talked to officials down there that they’ve ramped up, but they can’t possibly handle that.” Ainsley said, “That’s right. It’s really just a numbers game, Andrea. And for a while, yes, we’ve been looking at maybe 10,000 a day across the border, but I think it might even be higher than that now that I’ve been able to get down on the ground and talk to people.

Whedon: DEA says agency seized enough fentanyl to kill every American in 2022

The agency seized more than 379 million doses of the drug this year, up 94% from 2019, indicating the trafficking of the relatively new narcotic is on the rise, according to the Washington Post. Included in that figure are more than 10,000 pounds of fentanyl powder and more than 50 million illegal fentanyl pills. Fentanyl, the outlet asserts, has become the leading cause of death for Americans aged 18-49. The drug is 50 times more potent than heroin. Federal authorities believe they have only seized between 5 and 10 percent of the shipments entering the country.

Greenfield: Feminism Killed Feminism

Feminism promised to liberate women to live their lives as they pleased. Instead it tore down what they had, chained them to a set of masculine expectations and punished them when they wanted to do something else. The economic system welcomed a massive labor force, the decline of marriage and the family, even as it’s killing our society and young women. […]  You can’t tell people that they’re a plague on the world, that they want all the wrong things and that the world would be a better place without them and not expect them to act on it. Young women are more vulnerable because they’ve been hollowed out by feminism. All the programs that were meant to build up their self-esteem have instead destroyed it.

Harsanyi: Why the Redefinition of the Word ‘Woman’ Matters

Yet Cambridge now says the definition of a woman is “an adult who lives and identifies as female though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth” (and the definition of a man is someone who “identifies as male though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.”) How does one use “woman” in a sentence? One of Cambridge’s examples is, “Mary is a woman who was assigned male at birth.” Who assigned Mary’s sex? Her parents? God? Evolution? The SRY gene? And what other human characteristics does Cambridge believe can be altered according to one’s feelings? Lexicographers have a responsibility to offer clarity and accuracy — which is, of course, impossible in this case. When asked about the change, Sophie White, a spokeswoman from Cambridge University Press, told The Washington Post that the editors had “carefully studied usage patterns of the word woman and concluded that this definition is one that learners of English should be aware of to support their understanding of how the language is used.” This is tautological gibberish. Though, in fairness to White, “Wokeish” is a relatively new language. […]  It’s one thing to be considerate and another to be bullied into an alternative reality. But that’s where we are right now. Placating the mob has led to the rise in dangerous euphemisms like . . .  Read more: https://www.frontpagemag.com/why-the-redefinition-of-the-word-woman-matters/


Daly: Postal Service pledges move to all-electric delivery fleet

The post office said it is spending nearly $10 billion to electrify its aging fleet, including installing a modern charging infrastructure at hundreds of postal facilities nationwide and purchasing at least 66,000 electric delivery trucks in the next five years. The spending includes $3 billion in funding approved under a landmark climate and health policy adopted by Congress last year. The White House hailed the announcement as a way to sustain reliable mail service to Americans while modernizing the fleet, reducing operating costs and clearing the air in neighborhoods across the country. “This is the Biden climate strategy on wheels and the U.S. Postal Service delivering for the American people,” said White House climate adviser Ali Zaidi. […]  “Instead of receiving pollution with their daily mail packages, communities across the U.S. will get the relief of cleaner air,” she said.   Read more: https://www.woodtv.com/news/national/ap-us-news/ap-postal-service-pledges-move-to-all-electric-delivery-fleet/

Posobiec at AMFEST: America Facing a ‘Fifth-Generational Conflict’

“I’m a Christian, but I’m done turning the other cheek,” he continued. “Now is the time for action! Now is the time for victory! Now is the time to take back our country, and we’re doing it.” Posobiec declared that “we are at war,” explaining that rather than fighting in a war of sword and shield, America is engrossed in “a fifth generation conflict of tweets, of memes, of narratives, of information; a psychological war.” He went on to describe the actions of government, elites, and the media during the Covid-19 pandemic as “the most evasive, high level, mass formation psychological operation that’s ever been seen in Western history.” “That,” he explained, was “the push to make you stay at home, to take a vaccine that was not fully tested, and rushed.” “Dr. Birx admitted in her book that they ratcheted up the punishments to ensure compliance,” Posobiec continued. “Let me tell you something right now; I do not comply. We do not comply.” Read more:  https://www.humanevents.com/2022/12/20/poso-at-amfest-now-is-the-time-to-take-back-our-country

Surber: The dummy who invented the artificial heart

Wednesday marks the centennial of the birth of Paul Winchell in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He was a ventriloquist and a pioneer of television. He and his dummies became a staple of Saturday morning TV. He included in his show quizzes and adventure segments. […]  But Winchell’s life went far beyond entertainment. .[…] Winchell also held 30 patents. His inventions include a disposable razor, a flameless lighter and an artificial heart which was the basis for the Jarvik-7, the first successful artificial heart. Although Robert Jarvik denied it, Dr. Henry Heimlich (of Heimlich maneuver fame) stated, “I saw the heart, I saw the patent and I saw the letters. The basic principle used in Winchell’s heart and Jarvik’s heart is exactly the same.” The controversy was over ego not money because Winchell had donated the patent to the University of Utah, where Jarvik worked.

Luther: Christmas in Venezuela: What It Was Like After Socialism Destroyed the Country

(Dec. 2017) The situation in Venezuela is grim and not getting any better. A socialist government has destroyed what used to be one of the healthiest economies in the world and turned it into something for which few were prepared. As we get ready for the holidays here in America, with our usual spending frenzies and feasts, Christmas in Venezuela is looking a lot different than it did a mere decade ago. Maybe some of the young people who think socialism is the answer to all our societal woes will read this and realize that this form of government doesn’t work – it destroys all hope. […]  The stories of Christmas in Venezuela should be eye-opening to anyone who is trying to get prepared for a long-term event. The way that life has changed there is stark, dramatic, and something that could happen in any country in which the government turns to socialism.  […]  Could you imagine things getting this bad in the US?  Would you be prepared for life in a collapse situation? Would you be able to provide special things for those you love to make the holidays a little bit happier?

Meotti: Great Britain: Multiculturalism and Islam Turn It Upside-Down

  • This year, Leicester’s famous multiculturalism, so praised by the establishment, exploded. Knife attacks, stone- and bottle-throwing, cars torched, religious symbols under siege, dozens wounded, including policemen…. Then the hunt for Hindus began in Britain’s streets.
  • “Leicester to be first city where white people are minority,” announced The Independent in 2007. Some understood that it would not end well.
  • What happened? Leicester became Islamized fast. In 2001, the Muslim population was 11%. By 2017, it made up 20%. Among children, Islam is dominant.
  • For the first time since the 7th century AD, England is no longer majority Christian.

Bond: 97-Year-Old Former Nazi Secretary Convicted As Accessory To 10,505 Murders

A 97-year-old woman who worked at a Nazi concentration camp was convicted on Monday after undergoing a trial that lasted longer than a year. […] Furchner’s trial was held in northern Germany in the town of Itzehoe. In September last year, the proceedings were delayed because she had fled from her nursing home. She didn’t appear in court and was later taken into custody by law enforcement and given an electronic tag. The trial included testimony from 30 survivors, as well as family members of Stutthof camp prisoners. Historians said Furchner was fully aware of prisoners being tortured and killed. The judge, along with court authorities, went to the camp’s site and saw where Furchner would have sat and worked at the time. They found that she fully understood what was happening to people at the camp and therefore was an active participant in the atrocities.
