Senator Hawley Slams Biden 's Radical Judicial Nominee For Not Condemning Violent Rhetoric

America’s Contribution To The Communist Takeover Of China

“If we do not learn from the mistakes of history, we are doomed to repeat them.”

George Santayana (1863-1952)

Fully understanding communism and its effects continues to be a major challenge. What most people don’t know, though, is that it was America that hastened the communist takeover in China.

For decades, Chiang Kai Shek and his nationalist army had fought relentlessly to suppress rebellions by Communist forces. He was successful enough to maintain a democratic government for 21 years. However, Chiang was betrayed both from within his party and by America, the free world’s last remaining superpower, which refused to support his fight against communism. This resulted from a fundamental inconsistency in American attitudes toward Chiang. America should study the past as Taiwan defends itself from being absorbed by Communist China.

Nationalism and Communism

In 1924, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) joined forces with the Kuomintang (KMT). However, because the CCP was using the alliance to spread communism, the KMT-CCP Alliance inevitably collapsed. Chiang Kai-shek then set out on the Northern Expedition in 1926 and succeeded in reunifying most of the country. Then, in 1928, he formed the Republic of China (ROC) in Nanjing.

Communist spies began to infiltrate the KMT national army. General Li Zongren, a former warlord, joined the KMT in 1923. He was secretly against Chiang. Having manipulated support from the US, Li was competing for national leadership against Chiang by ousting Chiang’s loyal commanders, replacing them with communists. Chiang successfully neutralized Li................To Read More....

 

Journalist ‘Too White’ to Interview Black Writer Was Placed Under Police Protection

Chris Tomlinson

A Belgian journalist deemed “too white” to interview far-left African-American essayist Angela Davis, required police protection after receiving serious threats from activists. Journalist Safia Kessas interviewed Angela Davis earlier this week at the National Theatre in Brussels and had to be placed under police protection during the event due to the number of threats she had received as activists claimed she was “too white” to interview the black writer.  Activists were allegedly angry that Kessas was chosen to interview Davis because, despite being part Algerian in her background, she was not black herself.

“As Black and queer activists, we strongly question the choice of Safia Kessas to have a conversation with Angela Davis. Indeed, Angela Davis has worked and is still working every day for the liberation of Black people and against the prevailing negrophobia in the West,” activists said, the Belgian newspaper 7sur7 reports.........To Read More....

Why Did CNN+ Die So Quickly? Because There Never Was a Plus

As it turns out, doubling down on a poor product is not a sound business strategy.

It is with great sadness that Liberty Nation must report to its readers and viewers that they will never know what the plus symbol in CNN+ signified. Some would point out that, regardless of what Common Core math might conclude, zero plus zero equals, well, zero. The cable news network’s streaming service shut down faster than its TV audience has streamed away to other media outlets in recent years – perhaps because there never was a plus. With it, Chris Wallace’s career devalued faster than the US dollar – and perhaps even the Russian ruble. Maybe the plus, here, is that the absence of CNN online means more bandwidth for cat videos.

Chris Licht, the new CEO of CNN Worldwide, must have something of a sense of humor – which might be a first for the network. In an April 21 statement, Licht said:

“As we become Warner Bros. Discovery, CNN will be strongest as part of WBD’s streaming strategy which envisions news as an important part of a compelling broader offering along with sports, entertainment, and nonfiction content. We have therefore made the decision to cease operations of CNN+ and focus our investment on CNN’s core news-gathering operations and in further building CNN Digital.”

Nonfiction content. Well played, Mr. Licht, well played. Good one. The abandoning of the one-month-old service perhaps weighed heaviest of all on its biggest fan, former President Donald Trump, who also released a statement, which said, in part, “Congratulations to CNN+ on their decision to immediately FOLD for a lack of ratings, or viewers in any way, shape, or form.”

One could speculate that CNN itself, as a TV news network, would also have ceased operations by now if it weren’t owned by a huge corporation with vast resources. The cable channel’s best year ever was 2020, probably due to coverage of Mr. Trump’s re-election bid, which was, arguably, the single biggest political event since his initial 2016 run. According to a Yahoo News report, the network averaged less than 550,000 viewers for the week of Jan. 3, 2022. This was down from an average of 2.7 million during the same period in 2021. For the same week this year, Fox News averaged 1,408,000 viewers. Even MSNBC clobbered CNN by averaging 746,000.

It would be neither fair nor professional to observe that there are barely educated teenagers streaming their computer game-playing on TikTok who have been more successful online than CNN, so we will refrain from doing so.

There are people posting videos of themselves using power tools to make a sandwich, teasing orangutans at the zoo, or complaining about their minimum-wage jobs who have more promising internet futures than CNN. We won’t mention those, either. That would be low. Even lower than Brian Stelter’s popularity.

While its cable TV entity lurched ever further leftward, CNN could perhaps have revived its fortunes by reimagining the streaming service as a vehicle for, oh, what’s the word? News. Yes, that’s it. If only CNN+ had been about objective journalism – or even rational opinion – it might have been a contender. 

Instead, the new venture featured a who’s who of Trump-haters and left-wing elitists: Wallace, Jemele Hill, and legendary news personality and political analyst, Eva Longoria. And so, it was all really just more of the same. CNN actually managed to double down on the kind of rubbish – as the Brits say – that has over the years eroded its once-solid position as the go-to TV news destination.

An old adage advises, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. CNN took that and turned it into, if it’s broke, break it some more. That was the real problem, right there – and the answer to our original puzzle: The plus in CNN meant plus even more CNN. America seems to have enough CNN already, thanks. Maybe too much.

Do You Believe Cops Kill Unarmed Black Men Every Day?' Kennedy Grills Judicial Nominee

It’s a Boy!

It’s a Boy!

The mother birthing person is a boy, that is. Gender confusion is not unique to the U.S. Insanity, like the covid virus and other diseases, appears to be contagious. Thus, this story comes from Scotland: “Student midwives at Napier University taught that men can get pregnant.”

Midwifery students in Scotland were taught that biological males could become pregnant and were given guidance on how to catheterise “birthing people” with penises.

An online module at Napier University in Edinburgh provoked disbelief by promoting the “biologically impossible”, but most students were said to have been reluctant to speak up for fear they would be victimised for challenging its “inclusive” content.

The course book has been condemned by Joanna Cherry, an SNP MP, who said that “an attempt to produce trans-inclusive language” had resulted in “poor-quality, scientifically inaccurate teaching materials”.

Poor quality, scientifically inaccurate teaching materials are all the rage these days. Whether the subject is biology or history, or sometimes even math, fantasy has to a considerable degree replaced fact in Western education. And the strangest thing, to me, is that so many are afraid to point out that the emperor is naked..................To Read More.....


California’s Ongoing Suicide Attempt

by Steven Hayward California  @ Powerline

 When the news was announced a year or two ago that San Francisco would start paying to house the homeless in hotel rooms, you pretty much knew how it would turn out. An indeed it has turned out so predictably that even the San Francisco Chronicle has had to acknowledge reality. Start with the subhed:

San Francisco spends millions of dollars to shelter its most vulnerable residents in dilapidated hotels. With little oversight or support, the results are disastrous.

In a complex arrangement, the city’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, or HSH, pays nonprofit groups to provide rooms and aid to formerly homeless people in about 70 single-room-occupancy hotels, known as SROs, which the nonprofits generally lease from private landlords. The buildings are the cornerstone of a $160 million program called permanent supportive housing, which is supposed to help people rebuild their lives after time on the streets.

But because San Francisco leaders have for years neglected the hotels and failed to meaningfully regulate the nonprofits that operate them, many of the buildings — which house roughly 6,000 people — have descended into a pattern of chaos, crime and death, the investigation found. Critically, the homelessness crisis in San Francisco has worsened. . .

At least 166 people fatally overdosed in city-funded hotels in 2020 and 2021 — 14% of all confirmed overdose deaths in San Francisco, though the buildings housed less than 1% of the city’s population. The Chronicle compiled its own database of fatal overdoses, cross-referencing records from the medical examiner’s office with supportive housing SRO addresses, because HSH said it did not comprehensively track overdoses in its buildings.

Residents have threatened to kill staff members, chased them with metal pipes and lit fires inside rooms, incident reports show. At the Henry Hotel on Sixth Street, a tenant was hospitalized after a neighbor, for a second time, streamed bug spray into their eyes, public records show. Last May, less than a mile away at the Winton Hotel, a resident slashed another tenant’s face with a knife, leaving a trail of blood out of the building. Much of the instability stems from a small group of tenants who do not receive the support they need.

There’s a lot more in the full story if you want to take in complete account of the failure of urban liberalism.

This chart that accompanies the story may convey the real lesson of the scene. As I have asked before, with rising budgets for “homeless services,” does anyone think San Francisco’s political class actually wants to reduce homelessness? Expect the budget to double again over the next year or two, and for more homeless to turn up in San Francisco.

 

Blinken: Iran has plotted to assassinate Pompeo, other top US officials while negotiating nuke deal

While U.S. work to deter assassination threats, American negotiators remain at the table in Vienna to work towards a deal.
 

Secretary of State Antony Blinken indicated this week that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps continues to plot the assassination of both current and former top United States officials while talks regarding the Iran nuclear deal are still underway. Blinken made the comments during his Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony when Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz asked if it’s “true that the IRGC is actively trying to murder former senior officials of the U.S.?" Blinken responded that "there is an ongoing threat against American officials both present and past."

He reportedly said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, under the previous Trump administration, has and continues to be a target. In March, members of the IRGC were reported to be plotting the assassination of former National Security Advisor John Bolton even while American and Iranian diplomats mingled in Vienna. Secretary Blinken’s comments were first to suggest that currently U.S. officials are also being threatened..........To Read More.....

 

America's 'Car of State' Is Running Off the Road

By William Manning  April 29, 2022

John Adams defined a republic as a "government of laws, and not of men."  The concept of the United States as a republic is quickly becoming an illusion. Envision the republic as a vehicle that has transported the nation from 1776 to the present.  It is the responsibility and duty of the people of the United States to assure that the republic is fit to continue the journey for which it was intended.

If the republic is a vehicle, then its engine is the Constitution and subordinate laws.  Many suggest that the Constitution  should be viewed as a living document, "that evolves, changes over time, and adapts to new circumstances without being formally amended."  This is the view that liberals have advocated since the New Deal.

Liberals believe that their cause is so righteous that it justifies breaking any rule to achieve outcomes that advance their agenda.  An example of this is the contentious issue of abortion.  There is no provision in the Constitution regarding abortion.  The 10th Amendment states that "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states, or to the people.".........To Read More....

 

Conservatives Are Not Giving Spineless Leaders Any Second Chances

Kurt Schlichter Apr 28, 2022

Okay, you have every right to expect that, by now, anyone purporting to be a conservative thought leader – ugh, what a lame term – will be conservative woke, sometimes known as “based,” by now. There’s no excuse for still living in a Mitt Romney/Candy Crowley gimp cellar of crippling principles and principled failure. If you presume to lead us, you need to understand that we are in a life-or-death struggle to preserve our lives and liberty against a Marxist offensive unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before, and that we need to fight back and win or go down in defeat. We’ve lost patience with the softcons, the surrendercons, and the sissycons who demonstrate that they do not. Just ask Kristi Noem, who waffled and lost her shot forever. ..........After decades of incoming fire by an aggressive left that wants to convert us into impoverished, gender-baffled serfs with no ability to participate in our own governance, we have a right to demand that the people wanting to lead the fight actually understand that we are in a fight. And we are now demanding that. You better not waver, you better not waffle, not if you want a future in this GOP................To Read More....

This Scary Experiment Explains Two Years of COVID Hell

By Vic Hughes  April 29, 2022
 
 

In case you were wondering why all views contrary to the Official Narrative have been canceled, it's because of the Asch Conformity Experiment.

We have just gone through a nationwide, and actually a worldwide, Asch Conformity Experiment.  As implied, the goal of the experiment was not to get to the truth.  It was to get conformity.  Only conformity is allowed.

Asch showed that people will actually believe things that they know to be false if they think everybody else believes those things.  That is the point of the COVID nightmare experiment we just lived though.  You must believe:

  • COVID is hugely riskier than it actually was, so any actions are justified.
  • Vaccines are your only hope, even though the technology has never worked.
  • Vaccines are safe and effective, although they were tested for only a few months.
  • The unvaxxed are subhuman murderers, to be shunned and even left to die.
  • Not wearing a known-to-be-useless mask is a sign of relentless selfishness.
  • Children, who are at almost no risk, must be vaxxed, or they will kill Granny.

None of these makes sense.  However, no dissent can be allowed because the Asch Conformity Experiment showed that if one person stands up to the narrative, it is easier for the second one to dissent.  Then another and another stand up, and then control is lost.

That is why every dissenting voice must be silenced.  If one person cries, "The Emperor has no clothes," people will see the naked truth.  And that can't be allowed.

They Really Are Actively Trying to Totally Destroy This Nation.

By Rich Kozlovich 

As a history buff I'm intellectually aware of  how societies are manipulated, and how that manipulation can generate insane actions by people.  They become impassioned, demanding everyone's views and actions coincide with their own.  And yet equally malleable by the powers that be, with continued manipulation driving them deeper and deeper into a Lewis Carroll rabbit hole of self destructive insanity.  

Seeing it happen to American society hits a nerve because it's not an intellectual exercise any longer, it's a reality that has consequences that means something vile and evil to the nation, using the power of government to violate every Constitutional restraint in place. 

Double standards and violation of standing laws are the only consistent observable standard.  They rail against discrimination, yet openly practice it against Jews, Asians and Christians.  How can any rational person not believe their goal is the destruction of the American culture, the American identity, the American economy and the Constitution?  Why?  To quote the Canada Free Press:    And that's what they want.  A world run by insane leftist tyrants.

We really do need to get that.  

So, let's start with how this happens with this first piece, then progress into various issues that are destroying the nation, and this is the least of them.  We're now living in a post Constitutional era being run by people with no valid foundational moral values working to impose tyranny on society.

Biden Budget Plan Spends Billions in American Tax Dollars on Lawyers for Border Crossers, Illegal Aliens - John Binder President Joe Biden is seeking more than twice as much in American taxpayer funding to defend the borders of Ukraine against Russia than he is seeking for “border security technology” at the United States-Mexico border. On Monday, Biden unveiled his nearly $6 trillion fiscal year 2023 budget. As part of the budget, Biden wants to spend $682 million on funding for Ukraine, which he touts as “an increase of $219 million above the 2021 enacted level, to continue to counter Russian malign influence and to meet emerging needs related to security, energy, cyber security issues, disinformation, macroeconomic stabilization, and civil society resilience.” Meanwhile, Biden is seeking less than half of that — just $309 million in taxpayer funding — for “border security technology” at the U.S.-Mexico border while seeking $494 million to process border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior. 

Biden's Budget Proposes $5 Million For "Implicit Bias Training" Grants For Health Care Providers - Chrissy Clark Education Reporter President Joe Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requested $5 million for “implicit bias training” for health care providers, according to the administration’s fiscal year 2023 budget proposal released on Monday. The administration proposed $127.3 billion in discretionary funding, $5 million of which would reportedly “reduce and prevent implicit bias, racism, and discrimination in maternity care settings and to advance respectful, culturally congruent, trauma-informed care” via “implicit bias training,” according to the budget brief. HHS never appropriated funds for such training in years past.

Biden’s DHS Confirms Plans to Siphon Healthcare Services Away from Veterans to Illegal Aliens at Border - John BinderPresident Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has seemingly confirmed plans to siphon healthcare services away from American veterans treated at Veterans Affairs (VA) to illegal aliens arriving at the United States-Mexico border. During a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed to Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-IA) that the Biden administration is in talks with VA officials to potentially transfer doctors and nurses to the southern border to treat illegal aliens arriving every day in record-breaking numbers.........

Blue States Used Democrat-Passed Coronavirus Relief Funds to Implement CRT in Schools - Hannah Bleau - Blue states, including New York and California, used Democrat-passed coronavirus relief funds to usher in the Marxist ideology Critical Race Theory (CRT) into schools, according to reports. Democrats passed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act in March 2021, which President Biden signed into law shortly after. Republicans did not support the measure, but it passed in both chambers, as Democrats hold a majority. It included billions supposedly allocated to “safely” reopen schools. In August, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona said New York’s plan to use the funds to “support K-12 schools and students” laid “the groundwork for the ways in which an unprecedented infusion of federal resources will be used to address the urgent needs of America’s children and Build Back Better.” However, using the funds for CRT went far beyond just blue New York..........

Abolish the FBI or Face an American Putin- By Adam Mill April 10, 2022 - Following the death of Stalin, the Soviet secret police pivoted from heavy-handed mass arrests to a subtler, but still sinister, system of mass spying and accumulation of “kompromot,” or compromising material, on its citizens. The Soviets maintained control by prioritizing spying on religious figures, political activists, journalists, and public officials.  We’re now finding out that the FBI in America has a similar program of mass surveillance of similar targets. And, as with the Soviets, much of the spying has nothing to do with investigating crime. According to a Justice Department internal audit report, the FBI maintained an active caseload of 24,584 cases during the 18 months between January 2018 and June of 2019. 
 
A grossly disproportionate share of those cases involved surveillance of influential Americans such as candidates for office, public officials, journalists, religious leaders, and political activists.When the FBI targets an individual wielding high social influence, it categorizes the case as “sensitive.” ..............The FBI is more than a dysfunctional agency. If it merely failed to fulfill its mandate, it might be a tolerable nuisance. Instead, the FBI has proven to be the single greatest threat to the very Constitution it is supposed to serve and protect.

The FBI Is a Den of Scum and Villainy - By Jim Thompson Apr 11, 2022 

I believed in the FBI. Growing up, I thought, as most boys did, about being a cop and the best cops were the FBI. That myth was shattered long before Peter Strzok and James Comey. The FBI has been in steady decline for decades. Now the FBI is a joke. Populated with political hacks and agents willingly creating crimes to make criminals, it is a shell of what it once was, or what we thought it should be. "Entrapment" is a defense to a crime that almost never flies, but it did in Michigan because it was perfectly clear that the Bureau created the plot to kidnap Whitmer. When agents aren't entrapping dummies in Michigan they're after moms who don't want their children ruined...........


 

It's Not My Fault and I'm Not Taking the Blame. Get Over It!

By Rich Kozlovich 

As I'm going back and tagging my old posts I keep coming across some great older pieces.  On December 29, 2015 Douglas Ernst posted this piece, Prof to all white Americans: Admit your 'racist poison', saying: 

A college professor has taken to the New York Times to implore "white America" to go to "war" with itself over its alleged racism. Professor George Yancy of Emory University published "Dear White America" as a "gift" for white people. His challenge: "White America, are you prepared to be at war with yourself, your white identity, your white power, your white privilege?" The ways in which you perpetuate a racist society, the ways in which you are racist.”

Of course my first question was: How did this lunatic ever get a teaching job at any university? 

The second question we should be asking is: Is he representative of American academia?  The answer is Yes to the latter, and that explains how he got his job.

 Let's start with definition, for without definition clarity is impossible.

First of all, the words racism and prejudice are the two most misused words used in America. The word racist means hating someone simply because they belong to a different race. The word prejudice means to "prejudge". 

So the question we should be asking is this: Are whites prejudging blacks and hate them because their black or are whites evaluating them by their actions and saying - I don't like that?  If evaluating black society by the way they act as a culture, we have to conclude they've been found wanting. Violence, crime, illegitimacy and bad attitudes permeate black society. Why would anyone think that was acceptable? Why would anyone want to associate with any group who act in such manner? 

Black mobs rampaging through shopping malls, black kids "playing" the knockout game attacking helpless whites - especially if they're alone, old, female and outnumbered. Rampant rates of murder, rape, and crime in general. Not liking that, and saying so, is hardly prejudice or racism!  Unfortunately, there are entirely too many people defending this kind of behavior in black America, from both whites and blacks.  Refusing to recognize that kind of behavior for what it is, and worse yet, defending that kind of activity is actual racism. So, how is that racism?

What they're saying to the world is blacks are incapable of living civilized lives.  They're not capable of living crime free lives.  They're not capable of marrying the women they impregnate and raising their offspring.   They're incapable of holding down a job.  They're saying to the world blacks are savages and we should accept that.  All the while condemning as racist who've been recipients of all that violent behavior and speaking out against it.  Which presents another conundrum for these race hustlers since most of that behavior has been perpetrated against other blacks.   Are we to conclude these blacks who have suffered at the hands of other blacks are racists also?  

So, if that's the left's projection of blacks, and it is, we should be asking:  Who are the real racists?  

Perhaps they should try and remember Antonio Santiago. You do remember him don't you? At 13 Months Old I Was Killed By Two Black “Children”! What’s My Name?

We keep hearing how blacks are treated differently regarding employment, and the government constantly puts out figures to make that claim. However, when will the government put the whole picture on the wall? When will the government put out a study - based on race - showing how many work days are missed each year, how many days employees come to work late, leave early, cause trouble on the job, level of productivity, theft on the job, disciplinary write-ups, sexual harassment and violence on the job. Do the study!  After that I'm willing to let the cards fall where they may.

Okay, now let's see a show of hands.  How many people think the government or academia will ever undertake such a task? It won't happen - and why?  Because black race hustling activists, academia and the government are filled with racists who care little about black America, seeking instead their own benefits.

Race relations in America is the worst it's been in my almost 76 years, and Obama can take a lot of the blame, along with all the so-called black "leadership", who are nothing by race hustlers.  Race hustlers who totally disparage American conservatives, including those who just happen to be black, and the only ones to offer real solutions for black America, and the nation, because the implementation of conservative values, based on Judaic/Christian principles, raises all ships.

No society can be fixed if it won't recognize it's flaws and choose to fix itself, and living the lie that whites are responsible for the failure of black America is the first flaw that must be abandoned.

What's Really Going on in Our Schools

By Rich Kozlovich

There's been a great deal of outrage expressed over Florida's law on sex education for very young children.  Outrage from the left because it has passed, and outrage from the parents because this needed to be passed.  But I'm a bit amazed. Why? 

Because it isn't like it just started this year. Below are a series of recent articles dealing will this, but below them I've linked some articles from my files going back to 2013 and 2014.  And no one noticed this has been going on for years.  Is it possible the media has been hiding it?  Remarkable!

Well, the rock has been turned over and parents are seeing what was under that rock, and they're just a bit upset.  Teachers are upset also, because these parents actually believe these children belong to them and not the education system.   Imagine that.  It would appear these teachers, teacher's unions and boards of education keep forgetting who are paying the bills, who the children belong to and who really is in charge.  

They seem to think they're unaccountable autocrats rather then employees.  Well, the parents think if they're paying the bills, they're the employer.  Imagine that.  And when the employer is told to shove it by the employee, things can and will get testy.   This cartoon really sets to tone for the next election. 

and some serious changes need to be made, starting with the elimination for the Department of Education, followed by the elimination of Public Employee Unions, especially teacher's unions.

   

At a Fairbanks school board meeting, you could feel the leftist panic - April 26, 202  By Andrea Widburg -  When I think of Alaska, I tend to think of a sturdy conservative state that elected Sarah Palin as its governor.  Then I remember that Alaskans keep sending Lisa Murkowski to the Senate.  Clearly, there's a leftist strain in that state.  It was clearly revealed at a Fairbanks School Board meeting regarding a proposed revision to school policies that would have required teachers to wade into controversial, polarizing subjects.  That's an interesting discussion and one school boards should have.  What I found noteworthy, though, was the desperate speed with which leftist board members moved to silence a conservative board member who peacefully began to read from a book readily found on the high school library shelves............

More Secret Gender Transition Closets Discovered in Public Schools Epoch Times, by Alice Giordano - They started in colleges, but trans closets—rooms stocked with transgender clothes and accessories for students to change into after arriving at school and back out of before going home—are being discovered in public schools, with some indication that they’re being kept secret from parents. In a recent TikTok video, a California teacher implies that the trans closet he started at the high school where he works is meant to be kept from parents. “The goal of the transition closet is for our students to wear the clothes that their parents approve of, come to school, and then swap out into the clothes that fit who they truly are,” the teacher said.........

The Role of Parents in Education - By Anthony Matoria  April 26, 2022 - The education of children is one of the more consequential issues in American politics.  This is so, not merely because of concerns regarding the poor quality of education in many locations throughout the country, but also because the issue is used to justify alterations to established institutions and norms. The family and the individual dignity and welfare of the child are among these institutions and norms. Debate regarding education thus tends to wander into such areas as "parental rights" and whether children "belong" to society.  These are the issues of actual interest to progressive ideologies, and education is merely one front on which the ideologues seek to advance their agenda. .............  
 
Transgender Mania Grips the White HOuse, Despite Wrnings From Europe...  By Bill Donohue | April 22, 2022  - There is no such person as a transgender — you are either male or female — but there is such a thing as transgenderism: it is an ideology that promotes the fiction that the sexes are interchangeable.  To win, proponents are bent on getting to children, prompting little kids to question whether they are satisfied being a boy or a girl. If they are in doubt, they should be advised to at least consider making the switch.  There is no more rabid advocate of transgenderism in America than the president of the United States. Indeed, transgender mania has gripped the White House........

State to require 2nd graders to learn about gender identity You can have 'boy parts' but be a girl-  By WND News Services  April 22, 2022 - New sex-education standards that are set to go into effect in New Jersey this year have sparked a nationwide controversy and have even led to a public comment from the state’s Democratic governor, who supports the standards but wants clarification on what children will be taught. The standards, approved in 2020, are scheduled to be implemented this fall and will expand what students across all grades will learn about several issues, including LGBTQ+ matters. For example, by the end of grade 2, children should be able to “discuss the range of ways people express their gender and how gender-role stereotypes may limit behavior.”........

'The Way in Which Wars Start': Randi Weingarten Warns Parental Rights Bills Could Have Severe Consequences - Landon Mion Apr 22, 2022 10  -American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said on a recent podcast that GOP-backed parental rights legislation could have alarming results and even suggested that such laws are how "wars start." During an appearance on a podcast with radio host Rick Smith earlier this month, Weingarten criticized parental rights bills like the one recently signed into law in Florida. "This notion – we've been very lucky in America, and we in some ways live in a bubble for a long time," she said. "This is propaganda. This is misinformation. This is the way in which wars start. This is the way in which hatred starts." The AFT president also dismissed the suggestion that teachers are engaging in efforts to make students think in a certain way or are exposing children to inappropriate content...............

LGBTQ Activist Group Urges American Students to ‘Take Vow of Silence’ in Schools to Address ‘Anti-LGBTQ Behavior’ - The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) rallied U.S. students to participate in their annual Day of Silence Friday, during which the students are supposed to vow to remain silent in school, apparently to draw attention to claims of “anti-LGBTQ behavior.” According to GLSEN, which was founded by gay activist and former Obama administration “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings, the “Day of Silence” is “a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies  all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.”..........

‘Gay’ Lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll Take Your Children’ - August 25, 2013 by J. Matt Barber - Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that. Last week, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior or identity. This law bans help for minors even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky.
 
This law will prohibit minors and their parents from receiving counseling they desire and will force counselors to violate ethical codes because they will not be able to help clients reach their own counseling goals. This law would enslave children – whether abused or not – to a subjectively determined sexual identity that they reject....[beyond] violating their first amendment rights......The governor is one of three things. He is either: 1) ill-informed, 2) politically motivated or 3) stupid.
 
I don’t know, I guess he could be 4) all of the above.....
 
DOJ: Children Do Not Need—and Have No Right to--Mothers - March 3, 2013 By Terence P. Jeffrey Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr., speaks at Georgetown Law School.  The Obama Justice Department is arguing in the United States Supreme Court that children do not need mothers.   The Justice Department’s argument on the superfluity of motherhood is presented in a brief the Obama administration filed in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry, which challenges the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that amended California’s Constitution to say that marriage involves only one man and one woman.
The Justice Department presented its conclusions about parenthood in rebutting an argument made by proponents of Proposition 8 that the traditional two-parent family, led by both a mother and a father, was the ideal place, determined even by nature itself, to raise a child.   The Obama administration argues this is not true. It argues that children need neither a father nor a mother and that having two fathers or two mothers is just as good as having one of each….
 
Yale mulls paying for students' sex change operations - By Joshua Rhett Miller Published February 28, 2013 - Yale is considering joining Brown, Penn, Harvard and Cornell universities by picking up the tab for Ivy League students who want sex changes.  The New Haven, Conn., school is still reviewing policies regarding the procedure for its 5,322 undergraduate students and its 6,526 graduate and professional students, but has already extended gender reassignment coverage to employees.  "The benefit is offered to faculty and staff, and is being considered for students," Yale spokeswoman Karen Peart told FoxNews.com in an email. "Cost would vary depending on treatment."  Gabriel Murchison, a member of Yale’s Resource Alliance for Gender Equity (RAGE), told FoxNews.com gender reassignment surgery is just one of several areas where student health care should be on par with that offered to faculty, staff and their dependents....
 
Irate parents pummel gov't official over porn in class -
By WND Staff October 13, 2019 - 'If it's not suitable to talk about with adults, how can it possibly be suitable to talk about in schools?' Parents infuriated over school-mandated lessons that "promote pornography" have confronted the education secretary in the United Kingdom.  It happened at a recent National Parent Forum of Scotland event.  The Christian Institute explained that one of the parents faced off with Education Secretary John Swinney over the curriculum. "When [a] father gave a graphic description of what he claimed was being taught, he was asked by the chair of the event to tone down his language. He responded by saying if it's not suitable to talk about with adults, how can it possibly be suitable to talk about in schools?'" the institute said. The parents charged the lessons are "corrupting children.".........

Mask Mandates Return to College Campuses Where Students Have a Greater Chance of Dying from Opioid Overdose, Suicide or a Fall

256 Comments

Mask mandates are returning to college campuses. Healthy college-age Americans have next to zero chance of dying from COVID. It just doesn’t happen.

 And, scientific studies show masking was mostly worthless.  A recent Oxford study found that a 25-year-old man had a 0.00 percent chance of dying from COVID. Via Western Journal — An ordinary American reportedly has higher odds of dying from cancer (1 in 7), from suicide (1 in 88), from an opioid overdose (1 in 92), from a fall (1 in 106) or a motor-vehicle crash (1 in 107), than dying of COVID...........To Read More....

Another Misleading Look at Post-Vaccine Myocarditis

The CDC stays on brand but off the mark 

 Buzz Hollander MD Apr 13, 2022 

I plan to branch off from writing about Covid in the near future; the world of medicine is so full of interesting topics to research and discuss, and life is all too short. Alas, my plans to dive into a recent article questioning the benefits of widespread statin prescribing were derailed by a recent CDC report, aptly published on April Fool’s Day.

In it, the CDC asserts that myocarditis rates in the wake of a SARS-CoV-2 infection are 2-8X as high as the rate of post-vaccination myocarditis, even in the highest risk sub-groups (young men ages 12-29). This argument is presumably well-meaning, intended to counter arguments overstating the risks of mRNA vaccines. We have heard it before, from another CDC MMWR — the “Covid increases risk of myocarditis by 16X” report from last year — and from the American Academy of Pediatrics:............To Read More....

WATCH: Tucker Carlson Discusses Food Processing Plants Across the Country Catching Fire, Over a Dozen Factories Destroyed, Including Two THIS WEEK in Plane Crashes

By Julian Conradson  April 23, 2022 570 Comments

With the cost of energy skyrocketing and record-breaking inflation, the Biden administration came out last month and warned the public about “food shortages” hitting the US. Naturally, like with the ‘Putin price hike’, fingers were pointed at the war in Ukraine for causing the shortages. Biden himself was even trotted out by his handlers, warning that the shortages in the US would be nothing short of “real.”

Well, something odd and concerning has been happening ever since the Biden Administration made their ominous prediction. Over the past month, there has been a mysterious wave of destruction hitting the US food processing infrastructure that has seen “over a dozen” food production facilities destroyed completely or rendered inoperable.

This week alone there were TWO – yes two – separate incidents where a plane crashed into food processing plants, one in Idaho on April 13th, and the other in Georgia on the 21st at the General Mills Processing Facility.  .........To Read More......

My Take - How often have you heard a TV cop say:  "I don't believe in coincidences"?  Well, I believe in coincidences, I just don't trust them.  And these "coincidences" are a criminal conspiracy to commit sabotage, and needs to be investigated under RICO.  But who's going to do it?  The FBI?  The DOJ? Homeland Security?   It's clearly their job but it's also clear they're politically corrupted.  We'll see.

Techno Fog: In Effort to Keep Records From Special Counsel Durham, Clinton Campaign Says Fusion GPS Provided Legal Advice – Durham Responds

By Cristina Laila April 23, 2022 521 Comments

The battle over documents and e-mails in the Michael Sussmann case just got hotter. Back in August 2017, Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee, explaining how his firm was retained to gather “lots of facts about Donald Trump.” He admitted that Fusion GPS met with reporters leading up to the 2016 election to spread opposition research against then-candidate Trump.

The context of Perkins Coie’s retention of Fusion GPS was further explained in a book co-authored by Simpson and Fusion GPS co-founder Peter Fritsch. They documented an April 20, 2016 meeting with Mark Elias (Perkins Coie partner and counsel for the DNC/Clinton Campaign), where Elias requested their services for opposition research:..........To Read More....

Correct or cancel Mom’s grocery bag misinformation

Misleading claims on organic food grocery bags deceive shoppers on bees and pesticides 

Paul Driessen April 28, 2022

I don’t deliberately avoid organic foods or markets, but I don’t seek them out either. Claims that organic food tastes better or is more nutritious are not supported by evidence and certainly don’t justify the far higher prices. Mostly, I’m put off by assertions that organic food is pesticide-free, safer and more planet-friendly. Those assertions are simply false advertising; deliberate misinformation. 

Mom’s Organic Market shopping bags provide an excellent example. They’re emblazoned with six “Bee Informed” messages that help customers Bee the Change, Give Bees a Chance, and Save the Bees from a looming Armageddon attributed to synthetic pesticides. The Bee Misinformed messages merit correction. 

1. The #1 irrigated crop in the US is lawn grass, using over 10 trillion gallons of water per year. Mom’s didn’t say where its number came from; and if this basic information is fishy, what about the other messages? The Natural Resources Defense Council says US lawns consume three trillion gallons per year – not ten. Still, too many people overwater, use fine sprays that let too much water evaporate, and/or water lawns during the hottest hours or days of the week. The better message is, water smarter. 

2. Suburban lawns and gardens receive more pesticide applications per acre than agriculture. This may be true, but is it? Can’t Mom’s be more transparent about its sources? Homeowners should use lawn and garden chemicals carefully, responsibly and sparingly – and assume that any chemical (synthetic or organic) may be toxic and dangerous: to bees, other insects, fish, wildlife, pets, children and themselves. 

3. A single bee colony can pollinate over 300 million flowers a day. Busy as a bee – sure. But really? A typical hive (colony) has 10,000 to 80,000 worker bees. Assuming 50,000 on average, this means each bee would have to visit 6,000 flowers per day. Perhaps in a sprawling canola field; but otherwise pretty unlikely. Again, what’s Mom’s source? 

4. Scientists found bee-killing neonicotinoids in 75% of honey sampled from around the world. Now we’re getting into the nitty-gritty of ongoing organic food and environmentalist campaigns to frighten people (especially moms) into going full-organic and avoiding conventionally grown food. 

The scientists are finding parts per billion. 1 ppb is equivalent to 1 second in 33 years – or 50 drops of water in a 50-by-25-by-2-meter Olympic-sized swimming pool: 2 teaspoons in 660,000 gallons. 

Used primarily to coat seeds, neonics become part of the plant tissue and target only pests that actually feed on the crops, particularly during early growth stages. They greatly reduce the need for aerial or ground-level spraying with other chemicals that are much more of a threat to bees and other pollinators. They are a far lower risk to honeybees or wild bees than some organic pesticides – or Varroa destructor mites that attach to bees, suppress their immune systems, carry deadly diseases, create pathways for other diseases to enter bee bodies, and can cause well-publicized “colony collapse disorder.”

Neonics may be detected in honey because so much comes from vast canola fields in western Canada, where canola is grown with neonic-coated seeds, and beekeepers place their hives in the fields because bees thrive there and produce delicious honey. Don’t equate detection with danger. 

5. There are traces of 20 different pesticides in the average American’s body. Mom’s could at least post the source for this assertion on its website. More important, these parts per billion are detectable only because modern lab equipment is so sophisticated. The traces are not at levels that should cause concern. 

And what about organic pesticides? Organic farmers also use many different pesticides to protect their crops. But Mom’s, Greenpeace, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and the organic food industry don’t look for or talk about traces of organic farming pesticides: in honey, on produce or in human bodies. Perhaps they don’t want people (especially mothers) to know or think about that. 

The Risk Monger’s Dirty Dozen List of Toxic Organic Pesticides provides an informative overview of “natural” fungicides and insecticides used on organic farms – including chemicals that are toxic to bees, other insect and wildlife species, and humans. 

Among those organic farm chemicals, copper sulfate is highly toxic to bees, deadly to fish, and bio-accumulative in soil and water. Pyrethrin neurotoxin pesticides are also very toxic to bees – and are possible human carcinogens; originally derived from flowers (which is why they can still be classified as organic), they are now manufactured synthetically. Like neonicotinoids, nicotine sulfate is derived from nicotine; it can paralyze bee wings and legs, and is poisonous to humans; it’s dusted or sprayed on crops, so it can impact bees, birds and other non-target organisms. 

Other “natural,” “organic” chemicals that are highly toxic to bees include rotenone, spinosad, hydrogen peroxide, azidirachtin (neem oil), citronella oil, and even garlic extract and acetic acid. 

If Greenpeace, the EWG or the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) ever spent the time and money to test for these chemicals, they’d undoubtedly find “traces” of “organic” chemicals on “organic” produce. 

6. Roughly 0.1% of pesticides reach their targeted pests, leaving 99.9% to impact the environment. That sounds farfetched because it is, especially for crops grown using neonic-treated seeds so that the pesticide becomes a systemic part of the plant and targets pests that try to eat the crops. 

Today’s farmers are far more careful and judicious in how, where and how much they use chemicals to control the insects, viruses, molds and other pests that want to beat you to the foods you enjoy. They also employ a variety of “integrated pest management” techniques – including corn, cotton and other crops that splice Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) genes into the plant structure, to control pests that feed on those crops, thereby reducing the need for hand, tractor or aerial spraying with chemicals. 

(Organic farmers often spray live Bt bacteria on crops. But that carries risks that the spray could drift onto nearby plants and beneficial insects. It’s a mystery that EWG doesn’t wax apoplectic about that.) 

Those who still harbor concerns might be comforted knowing that the USDA conducts a Pesticide Data Program that’s been ongoing now for three decades. The PDP tests different (conventionally grown) produce every year – and issues a “report card” on how well US and international farmers comply with Environmental Protection Agency rules designed to protect moms and families from (conventional) pesticide-related health issues. 

While the annual EWG “Dirty Dozen List” is designed to instill unfounded fears about eating non-organic fruits and vegetables, because of alleged pesticide poisoning – the PDP analyses are scientific and data-driven. (At least it doesn’t blame manmade climate change.) The PDP goal is to ensure that all pesticide residues have fallen to levels that pose no risks to humans by the time they reach supermarkets. 

The latest 200-page report provides comforting news for consumers. It’s available here – or you can read plant pathologist Steve Savage’s summary and commentary here and here

One further issue deserves mention. Not surprisingly, Mom’s bags are made of kraft paper. Plastic bags (we’re told) are petroleum-based and clog landfills. Of course, it’s more complex than that. 

I operated bag-making machines during college. Paper and paper-bag-making processes are tree, energy and chemicals-intensive; and heavier, bulkier paper bags take years to break down in landfills. The volume of either is trifling, however, compared to pollution and waste from solar panels and wind turbines

The bottom line is simple. As the USDA and Risk Monger emphasize, pesticide residues on both conventional and organic fruits and vegetables almost never pose risks to moms, dads, kids, or other planetary creatures. Bee not afraid. Enjoy eating them, because they’re good for you. 

And correct or cancel Mom’s misinformation.
