Daily News Roundup

Casey Chalk contributor to Crsis Magazine: The biggest threat facing America today isn’t China or Russia. It’s not radical sexual or racial ideologies, nor globalism and widening economic disparities. No, all of these threats, however real and legitimate, all dim in comparison to a much graver menace to our shared future: the dramatic decline in citizens’ religious affiliation and belief. A recent anti-religious op-ed by the Washington Post’s Kate Cohen hints at what awaits an America untethered from Christianity.

Majid Rafizadeh contributor to Gatestone Institute: Biden has already been called “the Manchurian President.” After seeing the Biden Administration’s capitulations to America’s enemies over the past two years, it is important to ask: Has the Biden family effectively been paid to hand over America to Russia, China and Iran?


Brian Lonergan contributor to American Greatness: To hear Joe Biden tell it, America is a dystopian hellscape uniquely cursed with unacceptable levels of injustice and bigotry. He routinely labels the purportedly cruel majority carrying out this supposed bigotry as “supremacists” who prioritize themselves over any minority group by virtue of their race, ethnicity, or gender identity. It’s a dark, cynical strategy that Biden has somehow parlayed into considerable political mileage. As is often the case with Biden and his fellow travelers, however, whatever they accuse others of doing is exactly what they are doing themselves. While Biden’s accusations are supported by specious evidence, there are ample receipts showing the Biden White House to be infested with foreigner supremacists.

James Bovard contributor to Brownstone Institute: As long as enough people can be frightened, then almost everyone can be subjugated. Americans’ rights and liberties will not be safe until politicians and their henchmen are forced to submit to the law and the Constitution. 

Craig Roberts contributor to LewRockwell.com: White people everywhere are too intimated to organize and protect themselves.  They realize that the governments of their countries are against them and that any attempt by white people to organize will be branded a “white supremacist insurrectionist group” and its leaders and members will be arrested. Today demonized and unprotected white people are in the same position as Jews were in Nazi Germany. The fact that whites are still a majority of the overall populations of the countries doesn’t matter as they are prevented from organizing.  They cannot even protest their plight without being labeled “racist.” In fact, many white people are incapable of recognizing their predicament.  Social Darwinism is real after all, and whites have proven that they are not the fittests to survive. 


Thorsteinn Siglaugsson contributor to Brownstone Institute: The destruction of Roald Dahl’s books is yet another sign of the all-pervasive negation of reality we now face. We see this negation all around us, in literature, history, politics, economics, even in the sciences. Objective reality gives way to subjective experience, emotions, or preferences in place of what is true.

Mia Ashton contributor to Post Millennial: In order to effectively educate for sustainable development, it is important to educate in a “queer-informed” way, according to one queer pedagogue who believes that unsustainable development i.e., development that is economically, socially, and environmentally damaging, can be said to be “heteronormative and patriarchal.”

John Stossel contributor to PJMedia: The truth is, the word, “classified” means little. Our bloated government now classifies three things every second. If you stacked up all the classified paper in Washington, the stacks would be taller than 26 Washington Monuments.


Peter Caddle contributor to Breitbart.com: Scientists have suggested that the use of graphic labels on packaging could be employed by governments to shame people into not eating meat. Graphic labelling telling the general public that “Animals suffer when you eat meat” and “The Amazon rainforest is destroyed when you eat meat” can be used to shame people into not buying and consuming meat products, scientists have claimed.


Wakerwell-Cruz: BREAKING: Donald Trump greeted by crowds of supporters in East Palestine, slams Biden for prioritizing Ukraine over America

Donald Trump landed in East Palestine, Ohio on Wednesday, where he met with local officials and citizens of the small town still trying to bounce back from the ecological disaster caused by a train derailment and subsequent controlled burn.  While walking and meeting with locals, Trump was asked by The Post Millennial’s Savanah Hernandez what his message is to President Joe Biden, who is currently in Ukraine visiting President Volodymyr Zelensky. “If you were in office right now, what would you have done to help the people of East Palestine?” Hernandez asked, to which Trump said, “FEMA would have been here a long time ago.”

Sundance: John Rourke Describes His Meeting President Trump and What Trump’s Visit Meant to the People of East Palestine, Ohio

John Rourke of Blue Line Moving was one of the people who worked the logistics of bringing supplies donated by President Trump to the people of East Palestine, Ohio. President Trump thanked Mr. Rourke personally and publicly for his efforts in supporting the visit. Additionally, Mr. Rourke appeared with Fox News Tucker Carlson to give his overall impression of what President Trump’s visit meant to the people of Ohio and the region.

Mastraangelo: Exclusive: Donald Trump Delivers Truckloads of Water to East Palestine After Train Derailment

President Trump is meeting with the citizens of East Palestine, and he will never forget them and what they are going through. Contrast that with Biden and the federal government, who have failed them from the beginning,” Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung told Breitbart News. John Rourke, the CEO of Blue Line Moving, which transported the pallets of water to East Palestine, told Breitbart News the company moved 13 pallets of water, which comes to over 14,000 bottles for the small town. “Joe Biden/Pete Buttigieg stay away! The real President is here taking care of American Citizens. Make sure those Ukrainian pensions are take care of,” Rourke told Breitbart News.

Sundance: President Trump Responds to Georgia Grand Jury Foreperson and the Circus Media Tour She Is Undertaking

Yeah, just about everything associated with the media tour of Ms. Emily Kohrs, the ‘special grand jury’ foreperson and apparently spokesperson, is beyond weird.  Actually, it’s better described as a clown show attempting to present as a fact-finding ‘special grand jury’ from within Fulton County, Georgia.

President Trump responded via Truth Social to the latest cringeworthy developments.

Saavedra: Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner Subpoenaed To Testify In Criminal Investigation Into Trump

Former President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law have reportedly been subpoenaed in one of the federal criminal investigations into the former president. The New York Times reported that special counsel Jack Smith subpoenaed Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to testify before a federal grand jury about Trump’s efforts to stay in office after losing the 2020 presidential election. The report said that it was unclear whether Trump would try to block them from testifying by claiming executive privilege. Trump did not stop either of them from testifying in front of the special House Select Committee on the January 6 riot.

Allen: Mental Jigsaw – How AI Carves Out Space In Your Brain

With the explosion of AI chatbots and their bizarre statements, media attention has focused on the machines. Google’s LaMDA says it’s afraid to die. Microsoft’s Bing bot says it wants to kill people. Are these chatbots conscious? Are they just pretending to be conscious? Are they possessed? These are reasonable questions. They also highlight one of our strongest cognitive biases. Chatbots are designed to trigger anthropomorphism. Except for a few neuro-divergent types, our brains are wired to perceive these bots as people. With the right stimulus, we’re like the little boy who’s certain his teddy bear gets lonesome, or that the shadows have eyes. Tech companies are well aware of this and use it to their advantage. In my view, the most important issue is what these machines are doing to us. […]  Given the right prompts, chatbots will say the darnedest things. I see three broad possibilities for what lurks behind the screen:

Artificial intelligence is acquiring consciousness via digital complexity — or Inanimate bots exploit our cognitive bias toward anthropomorphism — or Computers function as digital Ouija boards to channel demons.

Pipes: Not just ivermectin: New FDA authority to ban off-label uses alarms doctors

Provision is buried in omnibus appropriations bill after FDA kept losing in court. […]  Doctors are speaking out against a new law that arguably paves the way for the FDA to prohibit treatments for purposes it hasn’t expressly authorized, going far beyond highly politicized subjects such as treating COVID-19 with ivermectin. The authority to ban off-label uses was buried on page 3,542 of the 4,155-page omnibus appropriations bill signed into law at year’s end, though it’s specifically applied to “banned devices.” The FDA requested this “very unprecedented” update after a string of court losses, Endpoints News senior editor Zachary Brennan told WBUR earlier this month, while cautioning that it’s not clear whether the agency could broadly interpret “devices” to cover drug treatments. […]  Some physicians aren’t trusting the FDA to restrain itself. “FDA lobbyists got congress [sic] to grant the agency (not practicing doctors) the power to ban some uses of medications,” Johns Hopkins medical professor and National Academy of Medicine member Marty Makary tweeted Tuesday. [NOTE: You may recall that five Republican Senators voted for this disaster of a bill.]

Wailzer: FBI memo whistleblower Kyle Seraphin was suspended for refusing COVID jab, flagging pro-life targeting

FBI whistleblower Kyle Seraphin, who leaked the intelligence memo targeting traditional Catholics, has said that he was originally suspended from the bureau for refusing the COVID shot and leaking information on the FBI targeting pro-lifers. Seraphin stated in a video released in October 2022 that he was “not on board with” complying with the COVID vaccine mandate for all federal employees when he worked for the FBI in 2021. “I immediately filed for a religious exemption, which was probably strike one and maybe strike two against me,” the whistleblower said. […]  Seraphin said that he blew the whistle on things “that were going wrong in the Afghanistan refugee or parolee camps,” as well as the FBI targeting “pro-life activists at abortion clinics” as “counterterrorism targets.”

Solomon & Gavis: FBI Gone Wild: Internal memos chronicle years of drunk driving, lost weapons and other misconduct

Scores of FBI employees have been caught over the last five years engaging in unethical and illegal conduct such as driving drunk, stealing property, assaulting a child, mishandling classified documents, and losing their service weapons — but they often escaped being fired, according to internal disciplinary files provided to Just The News. One agent left a highly lethal M4 carbine unsecured in his government car during a Starbucks run and had the weapon stolen, but even he received only a two-week suspension despite violating the bureau’s protocols for weapons storage, the records show. “Although there was a lockbox in the trunk for storage of weapons and sensitive items,” the agent chose to store the rifle bag behind the car’s front passenger seat, one report shows. “While Employee was in the Starbucks, the Bucar was burglarized. The rear passenger, rear driver, and tailgate windows were broken, and the rifle bag containing the M4 was stolen.”  Sexual misconduct was also rampant

Silva: Militia ‘Ringleader’ Sent to Supermax after Recording Message for Weaponization Committee

Adam Fox hasn’t been heard from since last Wednesday, when he was unexpectedly transferred to one of the world’s most notorious prisons in Florence, Colorado. Fox, the alleged “ringleader” of a plot to kidnap Michigan’s governor, had been incarcerated in a county jail, where he was communicating with an independent journalist for a documentary about his case. Fox and the other man convicted in the kidnapping conspiracy, Barry Croft, also recently recorded video statements intended for the House Weaponization Subcommittee, which was formed to investigate FBI malfeasance. Fox and Croft are calling for the congressional body to subpoena sealed discovery material from the case, promising it will reveal that the FBI’s 12-plus undercover informants and agents incited the plot and entrapped them. […] Fox and Croft’s family think that the transfers are retaliation for them talking to the documentarian, and for issuing statements for the Weaponization Subcommittee.

Deese: Supreme Court releases trio of rulings with liberal justices joining majority opinions

The Supreme Court released three opinions Wednesday in cases argued earlier this term, in which each case saw the three-member liberal minority joining the majority opinion in each decision. Justice Amy Coney Barrett, one of six Republican-appointed justices on the conservative-majority court, authored a 9-0 unanimous decision in a bankruptcy case known as Bartenwerfer v. Buckley. The decision was followed by a 6-3 opinion authored by liberal Justice Elena Kagan in a labor dispute known as Helix Energy Solutions Group v. Hewitt, followed by a 5-4 decision by liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor favoring a death row inmate in Cruz v. Arizona.

Dershowitz: Has the Supreme Court Given Up on Finding the Leaker?

The investigation done by the Supreme Court was destined to fail. It was put in the hands of the Court’s Marshal, whose job it is to protect the Justices and to assure order in the Supreme Court building. The office of the Marshal is not equipped to conduct difficult investigations. […] Let us be clear about one thing: the improper disclosure of the Supreme Court draft opinion in this case was at least as serious a breach as the Biden or Trump violations. Neither Biden nor Trump disclosed any classified material or actually endangered the security of the United States. They were dangerous because of the potential improper disclosure, whereas the Supreme Court leak involved an actual disclosure that impacted the High Court in numerous negative ways.

Devine: Conservative judges punished for ‘bias’ while liberal jurists skate

At a time when recidivist criminals are released with a slap on the wrist, pro-criminal prosecutors are installed with George Soros cash, and biased DC judges are handing out lengthy jail sentences to Jan. 6 defendants for misdemeanors, you would think there would be more important matters to occupy the judicial system than sanctioning a judge for being a Donald Trump supporter. But not according to the Judicial Conduct Commission and the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts. So offended were they by the social media output of Housing Court Judge Joseph L. Michaud that they conducted an intensive two-year investigation of his low-follower Facebook account, and found him very, very guilty of making a few mildly pro-Trump comments while posting content from the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal and Fox News. Quelle Horreur! His biggest infraction was . . .

Utter: An unborn child wrongfully incarcerated?

Natalia Harrell is being held in the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.  And she is pregnant.  Now lawyers are arguing — before Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal — that the fetus’s incarceration is a violation of his rights guaranteed by the U.S. and Florida constitutions.  […] This is an interesting case.  On the one hand, I don’t want to see yet another violent criminal released.  (And you know, or at least strongly suspect, that Harrell and her lawyer[s] are more concerned about springing her than they are about her baby.)  On the other hand, what a powerful statement it would be!  An affirmation that an unborn child has rights like any other innocent human being.  “Pro-choice” activists, who are also usually feminists and believe in criminal justice reform, would be thrust into an awkward position: that of essentially having to say, “Keep the woman and her non-viable tissue mass in prison!”  Delicious.  If justice were to prevail, perhaps a C-section could be performed, Harrell could continue to serve her time…and the baby could be given to loving foster parents.

Wolf: The Pain of Listening to Twitter Censorship Testimony

As I type, I am undergoing the excruciating experience of listening to C-SPAN, which is airing “Twitter’s Response to Hunter Biden Laptop Story.” The larger issue is: who censored Twitter, and why, and whether there was illegal collusion (there was) between Twitter and the US government. So I finally am seeing them — up close, in real life, in person. I am finally able to look at the faces of the heretofore faceless technocrats who took it upon themselves to try to destroy my life and ruin my name. I am witnessing, as I see them seated primly in rows in a Congressional hearing room, the very faces — the somber, ill-cut but costly blue suits, the bad wire-rimmed glasses, the judgmental expressions — of those who were personally responsible for the misery, trauma, reputational damage, shattered dreams, and loss of income, in my one life, over the course of last two and a half years. Here at last are the very people who took it upon themselves, or who oversaw their colleagues, to single me out, to collude with the White House, and with Carol Crawford of CDC, and with DHS perhaps, to suspend me — following an accurate tweet of mine that warned women of menstrual harms following mRNA injection. […]  It is so painful for me to see these faces. I have a very intimate relationship to these people. They tried to destroy me, and did a fair job of it, by some measures. These are the people — “my”people, paradoxically; people educated like me, people who shared my political views until 2020; these are people who vacationed where I used to vacation, who hang out with people I know — who were the agents behind full- on Stalinist-type persecution of innocent Americans; of me; these are the people who ruined my life, or sought to do so, and destroyed my career, or sought to do so. These emotionally ugly, these nasty, self-satisfied folks, so sure that they are right, so very, very wrong; are here at last; right here on C-Span. They persecuted not just me but Dr Martin Kulldorff; Dr Jay Bhattacharya; Dr Paul Alexander; Dr Peter McCullough. So many others.

Christenson: Hunter Biden snubs GOP-led House panel’s records request

First son Hunter Biden on Wednesday missed a midnight deadline to provide records about his overseas business interests to the House Oversight Committee — setting the stage for a subpoena and potential legal battle. A committee spokesperson told The Post that Hunter attorney Abbe Lowell is still refusing to provide the records requested by Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), the panel’s chairman. Similar requests were made by Comer of first brother James Biden and Eric Schwerin, a onetime business associate of Hunter Biden.

Jared Dowell was arrested at a violent Antifa direct action in Boston on Jan. 21 organized in support of the far-left domestic terror suspects in Atlanta. Dowell allegedly assaulted and bloodied a police officer during an attempt to escape arrest. Clark is a representative from Massachusetts and is a trans activist.

Owens: Constitutionalist, Anti-globalist Agenda Dominates Michigan GOP Convention

LANSING – In Michigan, being an unapologetic constitutionalist and uncompromising warrior against the globalist conspiracy seeking to destroy America is required to be considered for political leadership in the Republican Party. On February 17 and 18 in Lansing, the Michigan Republican Party held their 2023 State Convention for the purpose of electing a new party chairman and statewide leadership. The outcome was the neoconservative wing of the party being ripped out by the root. Anyone even suspected of being willing to do business with the neoconservatives was replaced. Only hardened, proven, and dedicated constitutionalists needed apply, and no amount of outside celebrity influence was going to make a difference. “This is a whole new world of opportunity,” said Mark Forton, the Macomb County GOP chairman and de facto leader of the hardline constitutionalist movement in Michigan.

Bovard: landmarks on the Road to Covid Tyranny

any Americans were appalled at the oppressive decrees issued by politicians and government officials during the Covid pandemic. But there were plenty of post-9/11 precedents that paved the way for recent abuses. Authoritarian Covid policies were shocking but not surprising. In March and April 2020, politicians justified shutting down schools, businesses, houses of worship and practically everything else in pursuit of Zero Covid. Nineteen years earlier, President George W. Bush promised to “rid the world of evil” after the 9/11 attacks. But it was impossible to rid the world of evil – which has always been the mother’s milk for ambitious demagogues. Bush also promised to “rid the world of terror” so children can “grow up in a free society, a society without fear.” And until that nirvana was reached, the Bush administration sought to maximize fear in order to minimize opposition to suspending habeas corpus, illegally vacuuming up Americans’ phone and email records, suppressing protests, and unleashing federal agents on domestic dissent. Promising absolute protection entitled the Bush administration to all the power that it claimed to need. […]  Similarly, after the start of the Covid lockdowns, policymakers entitled themselves to all the power they claimed to need to compel compliance. […]  When Obama campaigned for the presidency in 2008, entitling the president to kill Americans without trial wasn’t one of the reforms he promised. The Obama administration promised to be very careful about who it killed. But Daniel Hale, a former Air Force intelligence analyst, leaked information revealing that nearly 90 percent of people killed in drone strikes were not the intended targets. Biden’s Justice Department is rewarding Hale with a long prison sentence.

Nobel: Free to Choose: Your Car

Outside of the purchase of a home, the purchase of an automobile or two is likely the largest purchase a consumer makes.  Given it is your money at stake, the reliability of the transportation, the economy to operate, and the safety of your family, it seemed reasonable just a few years ago that this decision should be made by the consumer. The style of car one chooses can say something about you as well.  Having a midlife crisis or looking for something utilitarian? Today, however, socialists use the weak reed of “global warming” to determine what choices you will have if any regarding personal transportation.

By use of propaganda, subsidies, tax breaks, and hectoring, progressives want you in an electric vehicle.  Some Democrat states like Washington and California now have set due dates beyond which you will not be allowed to purchase a car of your choice. If having an electric vehicle is such a wonderful idea, why is all this subsidization and coercion necessary?

Summers: ‘Ghoulish’: Indiana abortion doctor slammed for posing with tool used to destroy babies in womb

An Indiana abortion doctor received backlash after posting a tweet praising abortion that featured a picture of her posing with an instrument used in surgical procedures. Dr. Katie McHugh, a self-described “queer OB/GYN,” posted a tweet Friday in which she called abortion “common,” “moral,” and a “family value.” As part of the post, McHugh included a picture of her posing with a cannula, an instrument used in surgical abortions to suck a baby from its mother’s womb. “Happy Friday! #Abortion care is still legal in Indiana,” McHugh tweeted Friday. “We’re doing everything we can to keep it that way.”  […]  McHugh faced largely negative backlash as a result of the post, including negative responses from those in favor of abortion.

Greenfield: China’s Ukraine World Power Play

Can Biden and Putin be dumb enough to let Xi pull off a coup? The PRC’s interests in the Ukraine war are complicated. China would like to weaken America, Europe and NATO. A Russian win would help bolster China’s plans for Taiwan. But, China also wants access to Ukraine’s resources instead of having them dominated by Russia. The war has dragged on long enough that it seems likely neither side will win, so the time is ripe for China to try and assert its own agenda. To do that, . . .

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin called for an investigation Feb. 20 into the Nord Stream Pipeline explosion. During his press conference, Wenbin stated that the United States has not been vocal about the incident since it occurred. “The Nord Stream pipelines used to be considered Europe’s energy lifeline. The explosions dealt a severe blow to the global energy market and the global eco-environment,” Wenbin said. “It also caused fear across Europe of a long, cold winter. An objective, impartial and professional investigation into the incident is clearly in order.”

VDH: The Ukraine War’s Prelude to What?

The Ukraine mess is daily looking more like the Spanish Civil War of 1936 to 1939, a meat grinder that took 500,000 lives. That three-year conflict became a savage proxy war and prelude for the belligerents of World War II. The Ukraine battlefield is proving a similar laboratory of death. New lethal weaponry and tactics are introduced, modified—and always improved—from drones to guided missiles to internet-fed artillery. Likewise, a similar pre-global war lineup of the eventual adversaries is emerging in preview of a much larger, much scarier war to come. The first mission of Ukraine, the aggrieved victim of a peremptory Russian attack, was simple survival.  But now that it has been armed to the teeth and its soldiers proved far more capable and heroic than Putin’s once-feared Russia, Kyiv now seeks to push back Russians to their 2014 Ukrainian acquired borders. Next President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has announced  . . .

Blitzer: Biden vows to ‘defend literally every inch of NATO’ territory: ‘Article 5 is a sacred commitment’

President Biden addressed the group of European nations known as the Bucharest Nine (B9) on Wednesday, stressing the need to stand up to Russian aggression and emphasizing the United States’ commitment to NATO allies. Biden’s appearance at the B9 meeting in Warsaw came as part of a European tour that saw the president stop in Ukraine and meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy before heading to Poland. The trip is taking place nearly one year to the day after Russia invaded Ukraine, kicking off a war that continues to rage on. […]  While pointing out the other nations’ role in fending off a Russian threat, Biden made it perfectly clear that the U.S. will be there with them if any NATO member is attacked.

Griffith: ‘Reject the woke assault, close ranks!’: Oldest US military college breaks out in chaos as former students launch online warfare against its first black superintendent for pushing diversity, equity and inclusion policies

The oldest senior military college in the US has found itself embroiled in a very modern form of cultural warfare, after a group of alumni organized a campaign furiously protesting the school’s recent diversity push. The controversy at the Virginia Military Institute has been simmering since October 2020, when then-Governor Ralph Northam ordered a probe into reports of widespread racism at the institution, and the school’s board voted to remove a Confederate statue on campus. In a twist of fate, the two sides in the VMI culture war are led by ‘brother rats’, as VMI classmates are known, who both graduated from the college in 1985, according to a Washington Post report on Tuesday. The belligerents are retired Army Major General Cedric T. Wins, 59, who is VMI’s first black superintendent, and Matt Daniel, 60, a white former Marine who founded a PAC dubbed ‘Spirit of VMI’ that has launched ads and lobbying efforts opposing Wins’ diversity push. […]  But as Wins has overseen reforms such as the removal of Confederate emblems from campus, and hired consultants on diversity, equity and inclusion to advise the college, he has faced the wrath of Daniel’s Spirit of VMI PAC.

Margolis: How Does This Happen? U.S. Military Email Server Was Exposed for Two Weeks

Why is it that we can’t go more than a week without another Biden administration embarrassment?  On Tuesday, a top U.S. defense official verified to Fox News that a Department of Defense email server was left exposed for two weeks and that, as a result, internal emails were accessible without a password.

The exposed server was allegedly the result of a misconfiguration. Anyone who knew what the server’s IP address was could access the emails with a web browser. “The server contained around three terabytes of military emails, with many related to the U.S. Special Operations Command, which is a military unit which conducts special operations,” Fox News reports. The emails on the server went back several years and contained personal information.

Tobin: When Media Say Biden Is Winning, They Mean He’s Succeeding In Radicalizing America

But this Biden victory narrative is not just missing a more sober perspective that would point out that most of his alleged victories are, in fact, not so much wins as they are examples of avoiding complete disaster or outright defeats. What those touting his winning streak are really cheering is the way his administration has faithfully done the bidding of his party’s left-wing base. With his abandonment of the country’s southern border, the hijacking of legislation that was supposed to address inflation and collapsing infrastructure but instead poured funding into the Democrats’ climate change projects, and the takeover of the government by exponents of the DEI — diversity, equity, and inclusion — racialist catechism, what Biden has given Americans is more or less what they feared would be the result of a Bernie Sanders presidency. Though radical leftists are far from entirely satisfied with what they’ve gotten from Biden in his first 25 months, he has given them deeply consequential achievements that have, in fact, far outpaced what the left received from President Barack Obama during a similar time span at the start of his presidency. […]  The entire idea of “equity” is a rejection of the idea of a society based on equality and inculcates a mindset that sees the goal of a color-blind society as not merely unattainable but undesirable, freezing in place race as the primary way to define individuals.

Rafizadeh: Is Biden A ‘Manchurian President,’ Facilitating Nuclear Cooperation between Iran’s Mullahs and Russia?

The US Congress urgently needs to pass legislation introduced by the Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that will “prohibit the Biden administration from waiving Congressional sanctions that prohibit cooperation on Iran’s nuclear program.” It is stunning that the Biden Administration is offering Iran’s mullahs sanction waivers for their nuclear program while the Iranian regime is openly getting closer to obtaining nuclear weapons. […]  Biden has already been called “the Manchurian President.” After seeing the Biden Administration’s capitulations to America’s enemies over the past two years, it is important to ask: Has the Biden family effectively been paid to hand over America to Russia, China and Iran?

Revolver.news: America Lost the Hardworking Men Who Held Her Together, and Now She’s Crumbling

Did you hear? South Africa can’t keep the lights on… again. Who could have imagined this, in a country where, until last November, the top electrical utility was legally required to pick suppliers based on the race of their owners? But surely America is better, at least? We’re not gonna sugar coat it—time to say what most of us already know in our bones. It’s not just you: big power outages really are a lot more frequent than they were a couple decades ago. […]  Overall, major power outages are way up since the 1980s. American aircraft keep nearly running into each other, while scheduled flights are canceled at rates far above the pre-Covid norm, even when there are no weather reasons for it at all. From 1980 to 2015, violations of the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act more than doubled. In San Francisco last summer, the on-time rate for BART trains dropped to less than two-thirds, putting BART in its worst situation in decades (hope their $190k/year senior social justice manager has some ideas!). Oh, and there’s the whole freight train derailment thing. You probably saw something in the news about that. Before our eyes, Revolver’s warning of two years ago is coming to pass. […] For decades, local planners and technicians and civil engineers were often unsung heroes of American life. Even as American family life frayed, industry moved abroad, and crime soared, they built and maintained the amenities that are synonymous with the First World. But the Heroic Age of Americans who actually built infrastructure is long past. The Silver Age of those who could at least maintain it is disappearing as well, like the Elves departing Middle-Earth. The average American utility worker is nearly fifty years old. In the next ten years as many as fifty percent of these workers will retire.

Reichard: Biden Shoveled $36 Billion In Taxpayer Funds To Bail Out Teamsters For Mismanaged Pensions

Can Americans be bribed with their own money? The powers that be are certainly putting that question to the test. In recent years, we’ve seen inflation-inducing cash giveaways associated with “Covid relief.” We’ve seen the ongoing attempts at profoundly inequitable student loan forgiveness. In December, we saw a $1.7 trillion pork pie omnibus appropriations bill passed by a Congress that had no time to read it. Lost in all of this has been one spectacular giveaway: $100,000 per beneficiary of the Central States Pension Fund (CSPF).   […]  Lest we doubt the ongoing influence of the Teamsters in American politics, the recent $36 billion giveaway says it all. It says to the union bosses, who make up half of the CSPF board: “You can watch the pension fund’s health decline for decades. You can make unrealistic promises to employees. You can keep the plan below 75 percent funded. You can depend on a pyramid concept where imaginary new members keep coming in to pay for retired members. None of that matters now. The politicians you own will bail you out with the public’s money. In fact, you can take such largesse that union workers in other multi-employer plans get left with only crumbs. Write yourself a check. And, as a bonus, we won’t ask you to change anything.”

Epstein-linked Clinton advisor allegedly hanged himself from tree after shooting himself in chest with shotgun

 The sheriff’s report on the disturbing scene where a top Bill Clinton advisor with ties to Jeffrey Epstein was found shot and hanged from a tree has finally been released, prompting sleuths to question why the death was ruled a suicide. Mark Middleton, 59, was a special advisor to the former president in the 1990s, authorizing Epstein’s visits to the White House seven out of the 17 times the infamous pedophile met with top government officials there. Additionally, he was also on the flight logs of Epstein’s private jet.  According to the Perry County sheriff’s office, Middleton was found dead on May 7, 2022 with a gunshot wound to his chest and an extension cord tying his neck to a tree in Perryville, Arkansas. […]  “I could see that he had a gunshot wound to the chest and that he had a knot tied in an extension cord that was around his neck and it was attached to the limb directly above him,” Lawson added. Ammunition and a gun case were found in Middleton’s vehicle — but the weapon itself never turned up. Despite the confusing details of the case, Sheriff Scott Montgomery said Middleton had apparently shot himself in the chest with a shotgun and also somehow hung himself, reported the Arkansas Times. […]

“What the heck? How can this be a suicide? I think Mark Middleton was arkancided!,” another commenter said, using a slang term to refer to someone being killed by a member of the Clinton family, who hail from Arkansas.

Chudov: Vaccinated Blood Is Contaminated With Covid Vaccine mRNA, Study Finds

new study was just published by Castruita et al. The scientists, while studying “something else” related to hepatitis, decided to test blood samples of their patients who got vaccinated for COVID-19 with mRNA vaccines for the presence of vaccine mRNA. Their approach was comprehensive: . . .[…]  I am proud of Castruita et al. for being meticulous with their analyses. I wish all “COVID research” was done with such in-depth safeguards against mistakes. This is what they found: We surprisingly found fragments of COVID-19 vaccine mRNA up to 28 days postvaccination in blood from chronic HCV patients vaccinated with mRNA vaccines from both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. of the 108 patient samples, . . .  […]  Is such blood safe or unsafe? It is not a question that I can answer based on just the above study. However, there was a sad story of a baby who developed a blood clot and died after getting a vaccinated blood transfusion.

Delaney: ‘It’s an attack on Christians’: San Diego college system terminating employees for refusing COVID jab

More than two dozen Christian employees of a San Diego community college system are being targeted for termination after not receiving dangerousineffective, COVID-19 gene-based “vaccine” injections in the wake of three of their colleagues having already been fired on January 19. San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) remains the only college system in the state of California to adopt a policy of firing employees for declining to receive the abortion-tainted COVID-19 injections due to their religious convictions. “I am one of at least 30 Christian employees at SDCCD that have been purposely targeted for termination, even now, for not accepting to take a fetus cell-tainted injection,” wrote mathematics professor Carlos de la Lama in an email correspondence with LifeSiteNews. De la Lama’s career at the institution has stretched more than three decades, including 26 years as department chair being voted in by his colleagues every two years.

Shurk: A Great Awakening Decades in the Making

Should America disappear from the map, it will be because decades of government corruption and abuse were never addressed until it was simply too late. Over at The Conservative Treehouse, Sundance has again managed to generate a treasure trove of anecdotal history, evidence, and analysis from those who visit his site.  Last month, he asked readers: if “[y]ou did not take the COVID-19 shot, why not?”  The thousands of personal responses were illuminating and created a kind of timeline showing how irreconcilable conflicts pitting available scientific knowledge and common sense against the government’s own actions, orders, statements, and censorship heightened public distrust of COVID mandates and “vaccines,” until various tipping points spilled over into outright rejection of political, medical, and media authorities. This month, Sundance asks a more foundational question: “When did you start really paying attention?”  In other words, when did you “recognize that things around you, things you perhaps didn’t pay attention to before, were not what you thought they were”?  What was the moment when “your political awakening began”?

Toplansky: Taking Back America

Cultural Marxism continues to degrade every facet of our country.  As I travel, I constantly see tattered American flags blowing in the wind.  They are a metaphor for the state of the Union. It is emblematic of how our country is being hollowed out. We have a Manchurian leader who is gutting us of our rights.  The latest assault is Biden’s determination to put us under the domination of the World Health Organization, who will determine our health care. […]  What could possibly go wrong with America ceding its G-d given rights to an organization that could set up a “medical police state under the control of the WHO, and in particular WHO Director-General Tedros” who could “issue orders that will go all the way down the pipe to your primary care physicians?” […]  Everywhere we turn, the social justice warriors have invaded.  Endless ethics training courses are mandated in order for colleges to receive federal funding. These courses are Orwell’s nightmare of debasing language, gaslighting, and weakening common sense. […]  Perhaps the most devastating and irrevocable assaults are the incessant attacks on the innocence of children.  Ayn Rand in her Return of the Primitive wrote about the comprachicos or comprapequenos or child buyers.

Bawer: Jimmy Carter’s Last Hurrah

When word came that Jimmy Carter, age 98, was entering hospice care, the predictable plaudits began to pour in. Calling Carter “an inspiration,” Maria Shriver gushed that he “moves humanity forward every single day.” Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) described Carter as having always “walked with God.” Rocker Nils Lofgren called him “[a]s fine a man and soul as I’ve ever seen.” And Steve Martin tweeted: “We’ve seen few humans this devoted and humble….Quietly continuing his mission,which was to do good. If you must leave us go gently . Leave your heart and bravery so we might learn.” All of which is testimony to the power of hype. […] I voted for Ford, but Carter won anyway. He was an absolutely horrible Commander in Chief. At home, he gave us high inflation, high unemployment, and an energy crisis that led to long lines at gas stations. And abroad? He treated allies shabbily. His reflexive posture toward adversaries was one of reflexive appeasement. He seemed to equate passivity in the face of provocation with Christian virtue. Oh, and he banned liquor from the White House. Though Trump has never taken a drop –because he fears becoming an alcoholic like his late brother – he wouldn’t dream of denying a guest a drink. But when you’re morally opposed to evil rum, as Carter was, the real fun is denying it to others. […]  And just as Biden’s weakness on the world stage would encourage Putin, decades later, to invade Ukraine, Carter’s weakness led to the Iranian hostage crisis. “I will never lie to you,” Carter promised. But he didn’t just lie, as all politicians lie – he proved to be one of the most duplicitous men ever to sit in the Oval Office.

Prager: Twelve Hundred Synagogues Desecrated Judaism This Past Shabbat

This past Shabbat (Sabbath) was a dark day in American Jewish history. Once again — this time within Judaism — the rule that the Left destroys everything it touches was exemplified. Twelve hundred American synagogues participated in “Repro-Shabbat.” “Repro” is short for “reproductive rights.” The idea, which originated with a left-wing organization called the National Conference of Jewish Women (NCJW), was to have as many synagogues as possible promote the idea that Judaism supports a woman’s right to abort the child she is carrying at any time in her pregnancy and for any reason, that the human fetus is never a human being — even five minutes before it is born — and that it has no innate right to live. […]  What is more disturbing, however, is that the NCJW and 1,200 synagogues regard the left-wing view of abortion — that it is never immoral — as the position of Judaism.

Greenfield NYC Names Street After “Adolf Hitler of the Black Man”

Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad headed a racist movement that believed white people were subhuman and doomed to be exterminated. His successor as leader of the original theological movement, Louis Farrakhan, is one of the country’s most notorious bigots. The same city which tore down the famous statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the museum that he helped found, because he was “controversial”, just decided to name a block after Muhammad.

Kaufman: Miami Heat Partner with Radical Muslims for Family Night

For years, the Miami Heat NBA team has been linking up with others to run different heritage nights, as a way to pay homage to South Florida’s many diverse cultures. Last month, though, the team partnered with those tied to terror and bigotry for its first annual ‘Muslim Family Night.’ The team even allowed the groups’ leadership onto the arena floor bearing the Heat logo to practice shots. The Heat have embraced and continue to embrace the controversial Black Lives Matter movement as part of their ‘Social Justice Efforts.’ Do they view radical Islam the same? In a push to celebrate culture and diversity, the team has legitimized fanaticism in the process.

Adcox: Diabetes drugs in short supply as they grow in popularity as weight-loss tool

drug that helps lower blood sugar in adults with Type 2 diabetes is in short supply, as it has become increasingly popular among people using them to lose weight. There is limited availability in pharmacies of Novo Nordisk’s diabetes drug Ozempic that is not expected to resolve until mid-March due to skyrocketing demand, prompting diabetes patients who depend on the drug to stretch out their supplies or switch to alternatives. Ozempic has only been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating diabetes, but its main ingredient, semaglutide, has been shown to help with weight loss.

Greenfield: The Emergency COVID Supplies We Spent Billions on are Being Junked Again

When it comes to government, history repeats itself again and again. Remember the ventilator shortage? It wasn’t because we didn’t have them. It was because when there’s a crisis, governments frantically buy and stockpile them, and then junk them. Here was the situation in 2020. […]  This story is out of New York, but it captures the same cycle as all the emergency equipment from COVID is now being junked. City officials auctioned off nearly $225 million worth of surplus COVID-19 medical equipment and safety gear for just $500,000 — or a paltry 0.2 cents on the dollar, according to a stunning report Tuesday.

The bargain-basement sales included nearly 3,000 mechanical ventilators that cost taxpayers $12 million but were unloaded as “non-functioning medical equipment for scrap metal” at a rock-bottom price of just $24,600 on Jan. 24, according to nonprofit news website The City.

Uniyal: Israel Passes Law to Strip Terrorists of Citizenship

The Israeli parliament on Wednesday passed a law to strip terrorists of their citizenship for receiving financial rewards from the Palestinian Authority. The new legislation, which received 94 votes in a 120-member Knesset, also gives the Israeli government the power to deport terrorists to the Palestinian Authority-controlled West Bank, as well as bar their reentry into Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government presented the bill after Israeli Arabs gave a “hero’s welcome” to a terrorist who was released after serving a 40-year prison sentence for kidnapping and murdering an Israeli soldier in 1983. Karim Younis, an unrepentant terrorist, “was greeted by family, friends and supporters chanting and carrying him through the streets on their shoulders,” the Jerusalem Post reported January 5.
