Daily News Roundup
William Sullivan contributor to American Thinker: . . . for the love of God, American taxpayers should not be paying billions of dollars that we don’t have to provide millions of Ukrainian pensioners a 20% raise.
Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: During his speech in Poland Tuesday, Joe Biden said he sees Ukraine flags flying on American homes “all across – big cities and small towns.” …”And the American people are united in our resolve as well. All across my country, in big cities and small towns, Ukrainian flags fly from American homes. Over the past year, Democrats and Republicans in our United States Congress have come together to stand for freedom. That’s who Americans are, and that’s what Americans do.”…
Tim Rose contributor to The American Mind: American men need purpose and meaning. They need the military—or something like the military—to inculcate structure and discipline into their lives. American men are broken. We need to tackle major economic and social issues that have reduced workforce participation and marriage rates, and increased deaths of despair from drugs and suicide. Rehabilitating broken American men should be our nation’s priority.
David Horowitz: I am not alone in thinking that curing this cancer in our midst is essential to restoring the constitutional republic that America once was by reviving the principles and values that made it a beacon to the world. The path to achieving this result begins with recognizing that our premier universities have in their liberal arts programs become one-party states ruled by ignorance and bigotry, and thus breeding grounds for civic and racial hatreds and lawlessness. To remedy this state of affairs Americans must press for the de-funding of these institutions, withholding the federal and state monies that help to spread their hatreds until such time as their faculties represent the true intellectual diversity of America, and eliminate one-sided political indoctrination courses from their curricula.
Dru Kristenev contributor to Canada Free Press: Generation after generation of AI embellishment and intelligence development can never displace or replace Mankind that was created in the image of God. AI advocates believe that denying the existence of God covers that particular argument, thereby empowering advancing AI with ultimate superiority.
Edward Ring contributor to American Greatness: When AI technology ascends to the point where most people would argue it has acquired superhuman powers, it will still lack what humans and gods share—a soul. Machine intelligence may soon animate avatars that, by all appearances, seem alive, but they will not be genuine beings. They will not have emotions, not even the ennui of the Greek gods, aware of and ambivalent about their fate to live forever. They will not only lack the motivational benefits of mortality, they will lack motivation itself. In the ultimate expression of the neon simulacrum into which globalism is transforming authentic culture, artificial intelligence overlords will display every detail of humanity. But nobody will be at home inside.
Technology News: Smart home technology has hidden dangers that most home owners do not understand. “Smart home” includes programmable devices within the home and, bi-directional connectivity to the Internet. Utility smart meters provide another gateway to monitor and control connected electrical devices such as thermostats, refrigerators, washers and driers, etc.
Revolver.news: The meltdown in South Africa isn’t a natural disaster or a random fluke. It’s a choice. South Africa was the first modern nation to be refounded on the anti-white principles of critical race theory, and now it is reaping the whirlwind of that choice. South Africa did everything that is being done in America right now. As a hyperdiverse multiethnic, multilingual society, South Africa has followed almost every prescription embraced by the globalist ruling class.
Mythinformed MKE tweet: When did medicine start sounding like a cult? The Columbia Medical School has altered its hippocratic oath to include pledges of fealty to Neo-Marxist and woke ideology.
R.W. Trewyn contributor to American Thinker: A quote by investigative historian A.E. Samaan summarizes the problem: “You can’t have ‘equal opportunity’ if you put your thumb on the scales in an effort to force equal results.” The equity thumb negates equality. That’s pretty straightforward, but it’s where diversity and inclusion come into play. They are used to getting to equity, bypassing those formerly pesky EEO hurdles known as job qualifications.
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: 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.
As we move through 2023 and into the next election cycle, The Prickly Pear will resume Take Action recommendations and information.
