Allen West contributor to Frontpage Magazine: There are two books every Republican and conservative should read before the end of this year: Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War.” Republicans are being consistently outmaneuvered from a strategic political perspective, and that must end. It can only end if you understand the leftists and what drives them. Then, develop the political killer instinct to defeat them, deny them their objectives, and go on offense against their delusions and derangement.
Julie Kelly investigative journalist on X: The pledge by GOP to release all the Jan 6 videos has been broken. I believed my involvement to make footage available was a temporary fix until staff could protect innocents from DOJ and thugs like Sedition Hunters. Now I see GOP has capitulated to DOJ and Capitol police.
Sarah Arnold contributor to Townhall.com: Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg appointed an Obama-era group made up of 24 “leading experts” to advise him on “transportation equity,” claiming the privilege of owning a car ignites “systemic racism” and should be banned because of their negative impact on the environment.
Bill Maher in an interview with Joe Rogan said: “Murders have been happening in Chicago among the African American community for far too long and not really reported in the way they should be. It’s amazing how black lives don’t seem to matter when they are taken by black lives.”
Karlyn Borysenko’s Substack quotes the new Library Association president, Emily Drabinski: “After the presenters held a rousing discussion, including discussing how to smuggle socialist ideas like Critical Race Theory into the classroom even when the law outlaws it (they call that fugitive pedagogy), there was an opportunity for attendees to comment. Emily got in line at the microphone. She was called “comrade” just like the others in line. And when it was her turn, she said this: I just want to say thank you for bringing up libraries, and classroom libraries, but also school libraries of all kind, public libraries and higher education library who have been under attack in similar ways. I think your point that public education needs to be a site of socialist organizing, I think libraries really do too. I haven’t seen that, working in libraries, but I think there’s a real opportunity here to both connect with what’s happening in public education, what’s happening in libraries, but also we need some help with libraries. We need to be on the agenda of socialist organizing.
Helen Raleigh, contributor to The Federalist: The left’s obsession with using race and wealth to explain away disparity in education outcomes and their equity-driven policies, from canceling the gifted and talented programs to delaying teaching algebra, have only widened achievement gaps among students of different racial and ethnic groups, hurting black and Hispanic students while unfairly penalizing high-achieving Asian students. The Fordham study is a reminder that anyone who is serious about narrowing the achievement gap may want to learn from the Asian community and apply cultural practices such as valuing marriage, hard work, and learning in their families and communities.
Gary W. Houchens contributor to The Imaginative Conservative: David M. Steiner argues that American education needs a clear and organized focus on ethics, beauty, and academic rigor to achieve its core purpose of preparing students to seek what Aristotle called eudaimonia, or human flourishing.
DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE SECOND AMENDMENT
( A 2A win) Silverio: Blue City Halts Enforcement Of Key Gun Control Provision After 2A Groups Threaten Lawsuit
The Democrat-led city of Los Gatos, California, halted a ban on concealed carrying in sensitive places after gun rights activists threatened to sue. Michel and Associates, a law firm representing California Rifle & Pistol Association and the Second Amendment Foundation, sent a letter to town officials claiming that the concealed carry law infringes on residents’ Second Amendment rights, according to the East Bay Times. The law, which passed this summer, bans firearms from certain designated areas. “Specifically, the ordinance makes it so that firearms are prohibited to be carried – even by those with a permit – in town property, public transit and places of worship,” the letter reads, pre the outlet.
FLCCC Alliance: The Case Against Ivermectin to Prevent and Treat COVID-19 Has Been Reversed by the Court
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court’s ruling that “sovereign immunity” protects the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from any wrongdoing or harm in telling the public to stop taking ivermectin, a safe, well-studied, and proven drug for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
In their opinion, Judges Clement, Elrod, and Willett state, “FDA argues that the Twitter posts are ‘informational statements’ that cannot qualify as rules because they ‘do not ‘direct’ consumers, or anyone else, to do or refrain from doing anything.’ We are not convinced.” “We are very pleased with this development and extremely proud of our colleagues for taking a stand against a government health agency that is clearly overstepping its authority,” said Pierre Kory, M.D., M.P.A., president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. “The FDA’s campaign against ivermectin continues to be used as an excuse by hospitals to deny access to a lifesaving treatment and weaponized by medical boards to threaten the licenses of doctors who stray from the mainstream to prescribe a drug that has been proven in controlled trials to safely treat hundreds of thousands of patients around the world.”
Schonfeld: Judge confronts novel issues in whether to move Meadows’s Georgia charges to federal court
A judge is set to rule soon on the first Georgia 2020 election co-defendant’s attempt to move their charges to federal court, a decision that could prove decisive for the future of Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani Willis’s (D) criminal case. Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows wants U.S. District Judge Steve Jones to allow him to switch courts to attempt to get his charges thrown out on immunity grounds. It would also widen the jury pool to less Democrat-heavy areas and likely prevent a televised trial allowed by state law. If Meadows succeeds, legal experts say it would make it easier for former President Trump, who on Thursday pleaded not guilty to the Georgia charges, to follow in his footsteps. […] He isn’t the first federal official to attempt to move their criminal prosecution, but legal experts say Jones is confronting a novel issue with limited case law.
As Jones mulls his decision, he has signaled some, but not all, of the allegations against Meadows may meet the criteria to proceed in federal court.
BIDEN’S DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PERSECUTE YOUR OPPOSITION, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP
Richardson: Top Democrats Back ‘Dangerous’ Legal Theory To Block Americans From Voting For Trump
Two top Democrats backed on Sunday the theory that former President Donald Trump could be disqualified from running under the 14th Amendment, Axios reported. Democratic Representatives Adam Schiff of California and Tim Kaine of Virginia backed the idea that Trump could be blocked from the 2024 ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which maintains that anyone who “engaged in insurrection” cannot hold elected office, according to Axios. Free Speech For People, a Democratic-aligned group, also sent letters to secretaries of state in key 2024 states last week claiming Trump should be removed from the ballot.
Vespa: Obama-Appointed Judge Slaps Down Lawsuit Seeking to Bar Trump From Presidency
Like most anti-Trump maneuvers, they often fail. It took the collusion of the media, the political class, the FBI, and the intelligence community to manufacture nonsensical narratives against the former president, which, after their 10,000th try, worked in denying him a second term. The latest attempt to derail Trump comes in the form of a shoddy interpretation of the 14th Amendment, which its supporters claim disqualifies Trump from ever holding elected office again. It’s a crock, but since some supposedly conservative legal scholars have joined the chorus—it’s gained some life in the media. In three states, Arizona, New Hampshire, and Michigan, there are either lawsuits or legal inquiries into whether removing Trump from the ballot would be permissible. In Florida, legal action to strip Trump from the ballot during its primary was shot down by an Obama-appointed judge who said the plaintiffs had no standing to bring such a lawsuit.
Revolver.news: Many are missing the truly ominous message in that viral ABC Donna Brazile clip…
There’s a viral ABC clip making the rounds that features disgraced cheater and former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile. On the surface, it looks like she’s admitting Trump’s movement has traction, contradicting the “bad guy” narrative the left loves to pin on him. But the real takeaway is deeper than that. Brazile isn’t just acknowledging Trump’s movement — they’ve been aware of it for years, and that’s why they’ve been trying to destroy him for nearly a decade. What she’s actually doing is sounding the alarm within the uniparty regime, saying, “Our current strategies are failing. Time to up our game.”
Bone chilling to think what they will do to “increase” their pressure. Also, pay special attention to her closing statement about the “old political rules” not working to quash Trump’s movement. What exactly is she getting at? Donna’s message wasn’t a concession; it was a . . .

Schlichter: Turnabout Is Fair Play And Also Both Fun And Essential
When life gives you lemons, make litigation. All these bogus criminal cases against not only Donald Trump but against anybody who knows Donald Trump, or has spoken the name of Donald Trump, or was ever on the same continent as Donald Trump, are a legal abortion that would make Planned Parenthood blush. Yet, despite these charges having nothing to do with actual law, they have everything to do with creating an opportunity. And it’s an opportunity to use our power as a suppository against our enemies ruthlessly. No, I am not for any of this. I think this is a bad idea. I warned people against creating these New Rules where you use the law, or, instead, you twist the law like some sort of Tibetan yogi into unrecognizable forms and shapes in order to trap your political enemies. I am on record saying it’s a bad idea. I still think it’s a bad idea. But what I think doesn’t matter. The New Rules are now The Rules, and it’s time to use them like Eric Swalwell used Fang Fang. Quickly and unpleasantly for the recipient.
TYRANNY IN THE NAME OF CLIMATE DOOM MYTH: GLOBALIST POLITICIANS & BIG BUSINESS ACCUMULATE MORE POWER & CONTROL
Greenfield: While Millions Invade America, DHS Fights the Heat
Heatstroke is now the business of DHS, but border security isn’t. “You know, when it is 110 degrees outside, your body has to work overtime to cool itself off,” Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of the Department of Homeland Security began his address to the ‘Extreme Heat Summit’.With 8,000 attempted invasions by illegal aliens a day and even major cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago drowning under the tide of invaders, Mayorkas and DHS took a break to talk about the weather rather than the 2.4 million illegal alien apprehensions in 2022. “110 degrees is not a nice day at the beach,” Mayorkas pontificated. “Extreme heat is no longer a looming threat in a climate change-driven future. It is an urgent, dangerous, and deadly problem in our country.” Extreme heat, also known as summer, is normal in states like Florida, Texas and Arizona where Mayorkas ominously warned the population was on the verge of death due to global warming. The biggest threat to Texas and Arizona isn’t coming from a summer heat wave, but a mass invasion of illegals flooding across the border. […] The DHS ‘virtual summit’ on ‘extreme heat’ was perfectly timed for the end of summer, and packaged with a “first-of-its-kind resource guide” full of useless suggestions for public officials like appointing a ‘Chief Heat Officer’ to watch the thermometer and sending out ‘Code Red’ alerts warning everyone it’s really hot outside and that they should turn on the air conditioning. […] That is not what cities actually want from DHS. […] The Homeland Security Act does not mention that it’s the role of DHS to police the weather.
So what is DHS currently doing? It’s “addressing climate change” and “uniting for Ukraine”. The last National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin, much of its reason for existence, was last issued in May 2023. Instead DHS has a blog on “breastfeeding and returning to your workplace” and ‘Risk’ assessments for global warming for areas around the nation.
Ceres team: New study suggests global warming could be mostly an urban problem
A new study published in the scientific peer-reviewed journal, Climate, by 37 researchers from 18 countries suggests that current estimates of global warming are contaminated by urban warming biases. The study also suggests that the solar activity estimates considered in the most recent reports by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) likely underestimated the role of the Sun in global warming since the 19th century. It is well-known that cities are warmer than the surrounding countryside. While urban areas only account for less than 4% of the global land surface, many of the weather stations used for calculating global temperatures are located in urban areas.
Salgado: Bill Gates Funds Plan to Chop Down, Bury Millions of Trees
If there’s a terrible dystopian idea out there, it seems Microsoft founder Bill Gates is always sure to fund it. The latest insanity in which he’s investing is a project to chop down and then bury millions of acres’ worth of trees. Supposedly, this will help save the Earth from climate change.
MIT Technology Review reported that Kodama Systems had raised around $6.6 million, a hefty sum, from Breakthrough Energy Ventures, billionaire Bill Gates’s climate fund. Trees will be cut down in California and buried in Nevada for this “stealth effort,” which Kodama characterizes as “biomass burial.” The Epoch Times posted a video clip on August 30 explaining Kodama’s plan to cut down and bury trees on millions of acres and how Gates is involved if you want a less credulous account than what MIT Technology Review provided. Yale researchers and payment company Stripe are also reportedly involved in funding or supporting the plan. The first irony about this plan is that climate alarmists have spent many years hysterically insisting that no brush thinning or logging can occur, to the point where forests turned into tinderboxes just waiting for massive wildfires to happen. Yet now suddenly trees are “fire hazards,” and logging isn’t bad for the environment. It’s the only thing that can save us?
Revolver.news: New haunting theory has emerged on why Bill Gates wants to destroy so many trees…
Critics point out that the trees targeted for removal won’t be available for home construction. This could make things worse for the already unstable and expensive U.S. housing market and hit the middle class especially hard. Here’s where things get interesting. Many are speculating that Gates’ proposal to cut down and bury 70 million acres of trees aligns perfectly with the World Economic Forum’s vision: a future where people live in small pods and eat bugs while Gates and his ilk live high on the hog, enjoying everything the world has to offer. Wall Street Silver: Bill Gates Wants To Bury Trees To Fight ‘Climate Change’
Alternate theory. He wants to increase the cost of timber so people can’t afford to build houses? This is the same guy who rewrote K12 public education with Common Core? Should we really be doing anything he suggests?

Arnold: Pete Buttigieg Wants You to Stop Driving Cars
No gas stoves, no gas-powered cars, and no beer are just a few things the Biden Administration has put the kibosh on. The Democrat-controlled White House is now fear-mongering Americans into believing all cars cause climate change and promote racism and should, therefore, be banned. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg appointed an Obama-era group made up of 24 “leading experts” to advise him on “transportation equity,” claiming the privilege of owning a car ignites “systemic racism” and should be banned because of their negative impact on the environment. […] Scrapped by the Trump Administration, the committee will advise Buttigieg on “promising practices to institutionalize equity into agency programs, policies, regulations, and activities.”
Pope: ‘A Hazard All The Way Around’: Small Town Locals Bristle As Wind Farm Waste Piles Up
Some small town residents in Texas and Iowa are frustrated by mounting piles of wind farm waste in their communities, according to Texas Monthly. The turbines that onshore wind developments use to generate power can be up to 200 feet in length, and the material that they are made of is rigid, according to Texas Monthly. These attributes make the equipment difficult to remove or recycle after they are decommissioned, a reality which can lead to these turbines piling up in communities like Sweetwater, Texas, and irritating some of the locals who have to live in close proximity to the waste. Discarded turbines now occupy about 30 acres of land in Sweetwater, according to Texas Monthly. Locals worry that there may not be a viable plan for getting rid of the equipment, leaving the piles of material to sit as dens for rattlesnakes and mosquito breeding hotbeds. […] The U.S. may generate nearly 7 million tons of waste related to wind power by 2050, according to a 2017 study published in Waste Management, a scientific journal that focuses on the academic “discussion of information on solid waste generation,” according to its website. [NOTE: Turbines are not yet recyclable ]
THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES & THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS
Cleveland: EXCLUSIVE: FBI Lies About ‘Highly Credible’ Source Claims Were Leaked To NYT And Spoonfed To Weiss
Emails obtained by the Heritage Foundation following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, and shared exclusively with The Federalist, reveal that lies leaked to The New York Times about the origins of damning evidence implicating Hunter and Joe Biden in a bribery scandal were fed to Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss. As I previously detailed, The New York Times reported those lies in its Dec. 11, 2020, article, “Material from Giuliani Spurred a Separate Justice Depart. Pursuit of Hunter Biden” — just a week after Americans first learned of the investigation of the now-president’s son. The Times’ reporting was “replete with falsehoods and deceptive narratives,” but “Americans just didn’t know it at the time.” However, earlier this year, thanks to “whistleblower revelations and statements by former Attorney General William Barr,” the country learned that the Times’ claims — that evidence implicating the Bidens was derived from Giuliani — were false. Rather, a separate investigation had uncovered reporting from a “highly credible” FBI confidential human source (CHS) implicating Hunter and Joe Biden in a bribery scandal. Now the FOIA-produced emails reveal even more: The FBI lies, laundered through The New York Times, were fed directly to Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss.

Revolver.news: Newly uncovered J6 bodycam clip shows top-level commander using EXCESSIVE force in crowd…
Based on the footage available, we’ve witnessed a police force that’s overly aggressive, frequently employing excessive force, and in some instances, exacerbating the situation. Was this a calculated move or are these officers simply that incompetent? Maybe it’s a lot of both? That’s what many are wondering once again, thanks to an unearthed clip that shows high-ranking Commander Glover tossing a grenade into the crowd just a few feet from his own cops. This is the same man who claimed the violence was so bad that day that he thought about using “lethal force.” NBC Washington: Newly uncovered J6 bodycam clip shows top-level commander using EXCESSIVE force in crowd… It’s hard to see why anyone would have trusted Glover to handle anything appropriately, as we can see by his actions in this clip. Investigative reporter Julie Kelly, just like Revolver, has committed herself to uncovering the truth behind the events of January 6th. After watching the clip, she called out Commander Glover for excessive use of force in a post on X:

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY
( A real and present danger) Salgado: Espionage? Chinese Nationals Gate-Crashed U.S. Installations 100 Times
The Wall Street Journal reported this weekend that these incidents range from individuals claiming they were just following GPS to get to restaurants that are actually on bases to speeding through checkpoints to scuba divers. Since we know that the America-hating Chinese Communist Party planted half a dozen illicit police stations in the U.S. and infiltrated all major U.S. institutions and levels of government, the risk of espionage is very real. […] Heritage Foundation president Kevin Roberts said in May that the CCP has infiltrated almost every country in the world, including America. Back in March, Anthony Shaffer, previously a CIA-trained intelligence officer and Donald Trump campaign national security advisor, mentioned the pervasiveness of CCP infiltration and said, “[I]nstitutions of the United States government, to include the White House, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, were paid millions of dollars to essentially defer to China.”
BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF FOREIGN POLICY
Spencer: Two Years Later, the Consequences of Biden’s Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal Are Still Unfolding
Two years later, people are still paying the price for the catastrophe of Old Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. And people will be paying the price for decades to come. The Associated Press reported on August 22 that “more than 200 extrajudicial killings of former Afghan government officials and security forces have taken place since the Taliban took over the country two years ago, according to a U.N. report.” These were people the Taliban had promised not to kill, but as Muhammad said, “War is deceit” (Bukhari 4.52.268). Nine days before that, the Daily Mail reported that “militants who left fingerprints on IEDs meant to kill Americans in Afghanistan and a prisoner freed by the Taliban were among more than 65 terrorists allowed into the United States after the catastrophic withdrawal.” What could possibly go wrong? Celebrate diversity! […] Emblematic of the mishandling of the entire withdrawal from Afghanistan was the fact that the Islamic State jihadist who murdered 13 American service members and numerous Afghans in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport in August 2021 had just been released from prison at Bagram Air Base, the center of American operations in Afghanistan until the U.S. precipitously and irresponsibly abandoned it in July of the same year. U.S. snipers had him in their sights but were ordered not to shoot. […] In a healthy, functioning republic, the political and military officials responsible for what happened in Afghanistan two years ago would have been impeached or forced to resign in disgrace. But the U.S. is no longer a healthy, functioning republic, and so instead, they are more entrenched than ever.

Waugh: The Debankings Will Continue Until Sovereignty Improves
After Silicon Valley Bank failed, President Biden told Americans they “can rest assured that our banking system is safe. Your deposits are safe.” Yet, for many, it is increasingly clear that this is not the case. Across the Western world, banks are unsafe for those holding views that diverge from state-approved media narratives. Banks routinely close accounts of depositors with views that diverge from the accepted narrative, often without notice, a practice called “debanking.” Even a cursory review of recent debanking incidents makes it clear that conservatives and conservative groups are disproportionately affected. And the advent of a cashless economy fueled by central bank digital currencies (CBDC) will exacerbate this trend. With CBDCs, governments will be able to directly control access to financial services. Though it has accelerated, debanking is not uniquely American, nor is it new. Across the West, digitized banking has resulted in a top-down politicization of financial services, enabling the debanking of individuals and large enterprises.
Vought: Biden Admin Sneaks Pro-Abortion Policy Into Pregnant Workers Fairness Act
Washington bureaucrats are now poised to push abortion ‘vacation’ policy on the entire American workforce, effectively by executive fiat. How can Washington bureaucrats take a law that could prevent abortions and turn it into an instrument to encourage them? When the pro-abortion Biden administration is writing the regulations, that’s how. At least, that’s a possible outcome regarding the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA). That law, passed as an amendment to last year’s omnibus spending bill, gave pregnant women common-sense rights in the workplace. Similar to the process outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act, the PWFA requires most employers to make reasonable accommodations for their workers’ pregnancies, so long as those accommodations do not create an undue burden on the business. The law will give pregnant workers the right to, for instance, take more frequent bathroom breaks or carry water with them at their job site. The measure seems like a common-sense, pro-family measure, one that both sides of the partisan divide can support as a way to make life a little easier for pregnant workers and, in so doing, perhaps discourage some from considering abortion as an option. That is until the Biden administration got involved.
Richter: Curse of Easy Money: US Government Interest Payments v. Tax Receipts, Average Interest on Treasury Debt, & Debt to GDP
Spiking Interest payments will hopefully, knock on wood, force the drunken sailors in Washington to go through detox. The gigantic US government debt is now approaching $33 trillion, amid a tsunami of issuance of Treasury securities to fund the mind-blowing government deficits and roll over maturing securities. At the same time, the Fed has hiked its policy rates where borrowing with short-term Treasury bills costs the government now close to 5.5% in interest, and borrowing longer-term costs over 4%. But, the higher interest rates that the government pays now apply only to the new Treasury securities to fund the new deficits and to replace maturing securities with lower rates. The securities issued years ago will cost the government whatever coupon interest they came with until they mature. So the average interest rate that the government is paying on all its interest-bearing debt has been ticking up gradually from the historic low point of . . .

THE DEMOCRAT LED WAR ON MASCULINITY
Dimuccio: Is ‘Fragile Masculinity’ the Problem with Our Men?
We’ve discarded the biblical view of a protective and dutiful manhood. We need to bring it back. […] There is no disputing that boys and men are in crisis. What is in dispute, however, is how best to explain why this crisis is happening and what to do about. In this essay, I want to explore key aspects of the debate by focusing on two fundamentally contrasting views. Let’s call the first view “fragile masculinity.” Fragile masculinity, and the large body of research around it, concludes that “traditional masculine norms” (particularly stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression) and societal expectations around them are the root cause of the harmful behaviors and negative outcomes we’re seeing among boys and men. How and why do bad things happen when society foists traditional masculine norms upon boys and men? Here’s a very brief overview. […] . . .an especially powerful perspective is provided by the Bible itself, which has volumes to say about masculinity and manhood. Let’s call this “Biblical manhood,” which offers a view that couldn’t contrast more sharply with fragile masculinity. […] Yes, the Bible offers a model of manhood rooted in traditional virtues like strength, courage, leadership, and responsibility (ex: Joshua 1:9, 1 Corinthians 16:13). According to Biblical manhood, embracing and perpetuating such virtues contributes to a strong moral foundation and a sense of purpose. Boys and men who embody these traits become leaders who positively influence their families, and communities. But Biblical manhood equally emphasizes the protective role of men, mirroring God’s design as the protector of humanity. It cultivates a sense of duty to safeguard those who are vulnerable, fostering (even commanding) a mindset that seeks the welfare of others (Psalm 82:3-4).
THE DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PROMOTE & GLORIFY GENDER DYSPHORIA A MENTAL ILLNESS
Spencer: Trans Madness Advocate Constructs Fake Bible Passage and a New Jesus in His Own Image
If you read the Bible with any regularity, you’re no doubt familiar with the passage in which “a woman, whose heart was divided between spirit and body, came before” Jesus. “In quiet despair, she asked, ‘Lord, I come to you estranged, for my spirit and body are not one. How shall I hope to enter the kingdom of God?” If that passage is not familiar to you, you’re not alone: it isn’t really in the Bible at all, but is a fake Biblical passage that ChatGPT generated at the behest of an advocate of today’s gender madness. “I know it’s not real,” commented the fake evangelist, “but it gave me some comfort.” And that in itself is revealing. Fox News reported Saturday that a “Reddit user under the name Psychological_Dog527 said he was ‘feeling sad’ when he asked ChatGPT to generate a ‘fake biblical passage’ about ‘Jesus accepting trans people,’ which he posted in the ‘r/trans’ channel.” This is intriguing on a number of levels. As a transgender advocate, “Psychological_Dog527” has likely long since left behind any connection to traditional Christianity, but nevertheless, he or she or xe is clearly still haunted by the figure of Christ to the extent that he (or whatever) has fashioned his own Christ, made in his own image, to assuage his conscience.
DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CHILDREN ARE THE TARGET OF THE DARKNESS AFFECTING OUR NATION
Evie Magazine: YGBFKM
Poor Things, which stars Emma Stone, is directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and based on a 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray. Many who saw it at the film festival hailed Stone’s performance as a sexual deviant; others were disturbed by its unsettling narrative that borders on pedophilia. […] Warning; Hollywood at it again with Prestige Kiddie Porn. The new movie “Poor Things” is a hit at the Venice Film Festival. Here is the movie plot: a pregnant Emma Stone tries to kill herself and is saved by a modern day Dr Frankenstein. He saves her by transplanting the brain of her unborn baby into her skull. With the body of an adult and the brain of a literal newborn, she does what all newborns do: she becomes a nymphomaniac and prostitute, of course. There are graphic sex scenes between Stone – playing a baby who can barely talk or walk – and (ew) Mark Ruffalo, the commie Disney star. I forget: can newborns consent to sex? If they’re smoking hot babes they can! The movie is marketed as a comedy. How dare you think this sounds like a thinly veiled pedo porn! You philistine—this is high art!
Raleigh: The Answer To Closing Education Gaps Is Not Race Or Wealth, But Family Values
Many education policymakers and equity advocates on the left have insisted that different educational outcomes among various racial and ethnic student groups are mainly due to demographic factors, such as race and socioeconomic status. But a new study has shown that culture, rather than demographics, is mainly responsible for “excellence gaps,” the disparities in advanced academic performance between different student groups. Two researchers from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, Meredith Coffey, Ph.D., and Adam Tyner, Ph.D., analyzed nearly two decades of assessment data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on eighth-grade reading, math (from 2003 to 2022), and science (from 2009 to 2019). They defined “excellence” as students who earned “advanced” scores on math and readings of the NAEP assessment. They used the mother’s education as a proxy for the student’s socioeconomic status since the NAEP questionnaire collects such data by asking test-takers to select from the following options: “She did not finish high school,” “She graduated from high school,” “She had some education after high school,” “She graduated from college,” or “I don’t know” (the final group was excluded from the analyses). Some of the study’s findings confirmed what was expected: . . . […] But data from Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students presented a different picture.
Chudov: Half of Vaccinated People Never Stop Producing Spike Protein, Study Found
Remember how we were told that “the vaccine stays in the arm” and that “harmless spike protein is only produced for a couple of days.” They said they were sure of that, despite no data to confirm their statements. Well, sadly, it turns out that they lied to us. The data is now in, and it proves such claims wrong!
A clever scientific study by Brogna et al., just published, detected the presence of spike protein in COVID-vaccinated people six MONTHS after vaccination – and excluded the possibility of cross-contamination of experimental data with wild-circulating COVID infections. The study’s authors used a sensitive test, called mass-spectrometry to detect a specific amino-acid sequence that exists only in the vaccine-induced spike protein. […] An item of note is the above sentence, “It is possible that the mRNA may be integrated or re-transcribed in some cells.” The so-called reverse transcription, that is, vaccine mRNA becoming part of the human DNA genome in some affected cells, was originally dismissed without evidence by the so-called “COVID science,” until it was demonstrated in in-vitro experiments:

Cole: Experts Are Scared as Child Deaths Spike Sharply
According to Dowd’s findings, death rates among children in the UK are climbing, fast. The yearly excess death data shows the years 2020 and 2021 had negative excess mortality rates, at -9% and -7%, respectively. During those two years, therefore, the death rate among children in that age group was lower than anticipated. However, these child death rates spiked dramatically in 2022 and 2023. This metric spiked to 16% more deaths among children than anticipated in 2022. The figure has continued to soar into 2023, however. So far in 2023, there have been 22% more child deaths than expected. Dowd argues that the only possible explanation for this rise in mortality during that period is the COVID-19 vaccine rollout for this age group.
Anderson: Major University Will Kick Students Out Of Dorms If They Get COVID-19
The University of Michigan (UM) is asking students who test positive for COVID-19 to get a hotel room in order to quarantine for five days, according to the university’s website. The university reminded students on Sept. 1 of the school’s rules surrounding COVID-19, suggesting if they are sick stay home, wear masks and get tested, according to the website. The university also asked students to create an “isolation plan” in case they contract COVID-19, noting that no students are allowed in the residence halls if they test positive.
(The elephant in the room. Covid jab related?) Baldwin: ‘We need a miracle’: Family of 17-year-old high school QB plead for prayers after he collapsed on field suffering a ‘significant brain bleed’ moments after tackle and was rushed to hospital
A Pennsylvania high school quarterback is in critical condition after he collapsed on the field during a game Friday night moments after being hit. Mason Martin, 17, has been left fighting for his life in hospital after suffering a significant brain bleed and collapsed lung, his family said. […] The quarterback has the verse tattooed on his right thigh, which reads: ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ […] Brittany Thompson, a spectator who was there with her daughter, told the Butler eagle that the incident was reminiscent of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s on-field collapse during an NFL Week 17 game on January 2.

(The elephant in the room. Covid jab related?) Bowman: Bill Richardson, former N.M. governor who worked to free Americans held abroad, dies
Richardson died in his sleep at his summer home in Chatham, Mass., the Richardson Center for Global Engagement, a nonprofit foundation started by the former governor, confirmed on Saturday. Before he was elected as governor in 2002, and later ran an unsuccessful bid as the first Latino U.S. presidential nominee, Richardson served 14 years as a congressman representing northern New Mexico. Under President Bill Clinton, he served as U.N. ambassador and energy secretary.
THE MEDICAL CARTEL CANCELLED THE HIPPOCRATIC PATH
Aoraha: ‘More subterfuge!’ Anthony Fauci is branded a ‘fraud’ and a ‘liar’ after admitting there IS a lack of evidence showing mask mandates stopped the COVID pandemic
Dr Anthony Fauci has been branded a ‘fraud’ and a ‘liar’ after admitting there is now a lack of evidence to suggest wearing a mask helped stop the spread of COVID. The immunologist, who retired from public service in December, was roundly slammed over the weekend after he said ‘the data are less strong’ now.
Some online accused him of ‘more subterfuge’ after he still called on Americans to cover up as cases start to spike once more. While others took a stronger stance and said he was ‘smoked’ as more statistics and research is done on wearing masks during the pandemic. […] The former health chief was responding to questions about a study by Tom Jefferson, a senior associate tutor at Oxford University, whose research concluded ‘there is just no evidence that they – masks – make any difference. Full stop.’
Drey: Dr. Marty Makary Criticizes ‘Highly Partisan’ Experts For Changing Medical Community During Pandemic
Johns Hopkins University health policy expert and surgeon Dr. Marty Makary said on Sunday that “highly partisan” experts changed the culture of medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic after recent remarks from Dr. Anthony Fauci responding to a study that said masks didn’t work. […] “We now have an era where experts who are highly partisan are citing data with conclusions that they like even if those studies are flawed, and they ignore studies that have conclusions that they don’t want to hear, even if those studies have impeccable standards,” he added. Makary’s comments were in response to a recent CNN appearance from former National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, who was asked to respond to an analysis released in January by The Cochrane Institute that raised doubts about face masks being able to curb the spread of COVID. […] Makary further criticized the medical community for believing other pandemic-related recommendations from Dr. Fauci and how a similar “political allegiance” is emerging as some colleges require students to mask up again and take another COVID vaccine after a recent uptick in COVID cases and the emergence of a new variant.
“We have ignored the data on the largest public health intervention in human history,” Makary said. “Instead, everybody is rewriting their own story.”
DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: ANTI POLICE ANTI VICTIM PRO CRIMINAL
Sloop: Oakland faces rash of ‘pirates’ as thefts hit boats and docks as crime spikes in Bay Area
Residents of California‘s Bay Area are experiencing a new wave of crime that involves ‘pirates’ sneaking up on dinghies and stealing items from boats in the harbor. Photos and videos posted online show dinghies speeding through the water at night and the alleged culprits on a watercraft following an apparent theft. According to posts, as police are inundated with crime, some have been left to fend for themselves when it comes to sea, said Marianne Armand, a local boat owner. […] Crime appears to be spilling over into the water from land as Oakland has seen a 22 percent increase in robberies and 18 percent increase in violent crime this year. […] Boat and yacht owners who spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle regarding the shocking rise in water theft incidents described it as ‘the Wild West.’ ‘It’s almost as if you were on a ship and there are pirates out there, and there’s no government, no one to protect you,’ said Steve Meckfessel, from a local harbor.
Sexton: Giant Food makes a last ditch effort to stop retail theft
Back in May I wrote about Giant Food, a grocery chain in the Washington, DC area. My grandparents shopped at the Giant Food in Silver Spring, MD for most of their lives so I’ve been to that location many times. But latetly the chain is struggling with retail theft, or shrink as it’s known in the industry. Ira Kress, the president of Giant Food told the Washington Post, “To say [theft has] risen tenfold in the last five years would not be an understatement.” Saturday the Post published a follow up story about Giant’s last ditch efforts to combat shrink at their last remaining store east of the Anacostia River by removing lots of frequently stolen name brand products from their stores. […] This is a sad state of affairs. No one can afford to be the last store in the neighborhood to lock up certain products because all the thieves quickly learn where to go. But if Giant isn’t able to stop the theft the store will close. It’s the only full-sized grocery store left in Ward 8 which is in the eastern part of the city. That one store currently serves about 80,000 people who live in the ward. If it disappears it’s unlikely anyone else will be eager to open a grocery store in the area.
CORRUPT & DANGEROUS DEMOCRAT PARTY MEDIA INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Greenfield: While Media Focused on Israel, Eritrean Migrants Riots were Happening Around the World
While the media focuses (predictably) on the violent riots between groups of battling Eritrean migrants that took place in Israel, they’re actually happening around the world. Here it is in Edmonton, Canada. It was a chaotic scene with few if any parallels in Edmonton’s history: hundreds of men clashing on a field — some in blue, others in orange — carrying sticks and poles flying brightly coloured flags. Now, police are investigating the weekend violence, which pitted members of the city’s Eritrean community against one another and led officers to take the rare step of proclaiming the Riot Act. Police responded to clashes across the city over the weekend, during which stones, bricks and other objects were hurled at officers in riot gear. No charges have yet been laid, police said in a news release Monday afternoon. And Calgary, Canada. . . . […] Here it is happening in Norway. . . . […] Here it is in Sweden. . . .

(H/T CFP) Tarte: Dayton, Nevada, is home to a micronation of 38 people that owes its soul to San Francisco
The Republic of Molossia is the city of your adolescent, Candy Land dreams, where the currency is cookie dough and the nation’s leader officially outlawed spinach. How does a place like Molossia, located about 45 minutes from Reno, exist within the confines of the United States? The self-described independent nation, ruled by President Kevin Baugh and first lady Adrianne Baugh, is actually a micronation within the United States. At last count, there were 67 micronations across the globe, although that number is more of an estimate considering there aren’t a lot of hard and fast rules for declaring sovereignty. Micronations are not recognized as sovereign states, no matter their claims, but they often share a dedication to pageantry and humor. Molossia is enclosed within a small Nevada town called Dayton, on an 11-acre property with a total population of 38 souls. Three of the citizens are dogs.
Mueller: Arizona GOP braces for volatile Lake-Masters match-up
Lake has said she’s “seriously considering” getting in the race, and a senior adviser noted she could make a decision in the next month or so. A new Wall Street Journal report, citing people familiar with Masters’s plans, said the failed Senate hopeful is set to announce another bid in the coming weeks.
Both stoked controversies in their last bids for offices, and a win by either would leave some Republicans worried about their chances in November. “This is obviously going to be the race to watch across the nation,” said Arizona-based Republican strategist Lorna Romero Ferguson. “I think this race will really set the tone of: ‘OK, what is the path forward for Arizona?’” […] Lake and Masters were each endorsed by former President Trump in their races last year, and while the party hoped the pair would be part of a “red wave” of Republican wins during the midterms, both candidates lost the sought-after Arizona seats.
[…] But no matter who gets in the GOP race, the party’s nominee will head into a critical general election that could include both the independent incumbent and a Democratic nominee for a three-way showdown.
Greenfield: First Afghan Muslim in CA Senate Got Dems to Pass Her Anti-Hindu Bill
California is moving to pass a “caste discrimination” bill. Strangest of all is that the bill comes from Sen. Aisha Wahab, the first Muslim and Afghan in the California State Senate. After backlash from Hindus over a bill that was very clearly targeting them, Sen. Wahab and her political allies claimed that she was facing Islamophobia and death threats from “extremists”. Time Magazine sent a Muslim journalist to interview Wahab about the Islamophobia she was suffering from. And as the anti-Hindu bill moves closer to becoming law, the media has doubled down on this approach along with refusing to notice the obvious.
