"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . . More menacing than barbarians storming the walls from without are the seeming citizens within – those who are citizens in gesture, but not in thought.”

individual freedom as the striving after this mirage of social justice.”
F. A. Hayek, Economic Freedom and Representative Government (1973)

Truth is always stranger than fiction because fiction has to make sense. — Mark Twain

The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. — H. L. Mencken

Biden's Militarized Inauguration Showcased Democrats' Insecurity
Glenn H. Reynolds
Nothing says, "This was a perfectly normal election, and now it's time to come together as a united nation," like having your swearing-in behind 12-foot-high razor wire surrounded by 25,000 troops whose loyalty you doubt. That's what we witnessed at President Biden's inauguration on Wednesday: a grim testament to the fundamental insecurity and fragility of the re-ascendant liberal elite.

Who Ordered the National Guard Troops
Stuffed Into the Icy Underground Parking Garage?

Monica Showalter
Following the strange inauguration of Joe Biden, some 25,000 to 65,000 National Guard troops brought in to guard the Capitol were in for a string of insults. First, their loyalty was questioned. Then their professionalism was questioned. And with no clear purpose for so many of them to protect the Capitol, it was clear they were being used for photo op props, not the service they were sworn to.

Trump's Top-10 Triumphs:
A Last Look at a Remarkable Presidency

I & I Editorial Board
President Donald Trump became an ex-president on Wednesday, as Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States. We wish him nothing but the best. But before we let Trump go, we thought we'd review some of his biggest accomplishments while in office. We call them "triumphs," because they were all big achievements executed against great odds.
Now the Washington Post Admits
Trump Did Not Incite the Capitol Riot

With the second bogus impeachment in the books, the Washington Post has finally seen fit to admit that President Trump did not incite the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with his speech, acknowledging that it was, in fact, planned in advance. The article, published Tuesday, the day before Biden's inauguration, declares in its headline "Self-styled militia members planned on storming the U.S. Capitol days in advance of Jan. 6 attack, court documents say"
Biden Cannot Legally Get Us Back Into the Paris Climate Accords;
Here's Why (that goes for the Iran nuclear deal as well)

Matt Margolis
The truth is, the United States was never actually legally a part of the Paris climate accords. What does the United States Constitution say about treaties? It says that the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur." It's right there in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2... Obama, who fancied himself a constitutional scholar, never even attempted to go to the Senate for ratification.
Earth to Joe Biden: Canceling Keystone XL Pipeline
Is a Gift to China and Russia

Daniel Turner
Joe Biden's plans to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline is a gift to someone. The radical green groups for sure: they have opposed the oil link since its inception. The trucking and railroad industry will benefit, too, because once the pipeline is stopped, then the oil will be transported in and around America by something with wheels. It's also a gift to our adversaries:
Justin Trudeau 'disappointed' in
Biden's Decision to Cancel Keystone XL Pipeline

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday said his administration was "disappointed" with President Joe Biden's decision to revoke the permit for construction on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The 1,700-mile pipeline was planned to carry roughly 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
Biden's Dishonest Coronavirus Expectation-Setting
Washington Examiner editorial
President Biden promised to be straight with the public, but when it comes to the coronavirus, it's clear that his administration is more interested in gaming expectations. While the vaccine rollout has obviously been far from perfect, the reality is that at the time Biden was sworn into office, the United States was already administering vaccines at a pace of roughly 1 million a day – the same pace that would be required to meet the Biden goal.
Biden Stops Trump Order to Slash Price of Insulin, EpiPen
President Joe Biden's United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday stopped executive orders from his predecessor designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including insulin and epinephrine. During the signing ceremony, Trump said the high price of insulin and EpiPens have cut off low-income people in "desperate" need of the treatments.
Biden's Pause On Oil Cause for Big Concern in New Mexico
President Joe Biden's 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits is prompting widespread concerns in New Mexico, where spending on education and other public programs hinges on the industry's success. Top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin – one of the most productive regions in the U.S. – say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state.
Biden May Force American Taxpayers to
Foot Bill for San Francisco Homeless Hotels

San Francisco hotels used to house homeless people may be fully funded by the federal government this year, thanks to an executive order signed by President Joe Biden signed last Thursday. Under the order, certain kinds of emergency housing for the homeless are eligible to be fully reimbursed through September.
Biden's Executive Order Blitz Has
Done Nothing but 'spit into the eye of normal Americans'

Miranda Devine
Since accepting office, President Biden has enacted a slate of executive orders that have done nothing but "spit into the eye of normal Americans who are not protected by great wealth or by protected jobs," Fox News contributor Miranda Devine said Saturday. The New York Post columnist made the comment on "Watters World" over the weekend reacting to a total of 30 executive orders signed by Biden since entering the Oval Office last Wednesday. The orders reversed a number of Trump administration policies and covered areas Biden identified as his priorities on the campaign trail, including the coronavirus pandemic and climate change.
Biden Reverses on Change to U.S. Ambassador to Israel
Twitter Name to Include West Bank and Gaza

"The U.S. doesn’t have ambassadors to any other disputed territory in the world. Singling out Israel, once again, is wrong," said Len Khodorkovsky, former deputy assistant secretary at the State Department. "Instead of building on all the progress that’s been made toward peace in the Middle East, the Biden administration seems to be reversing course toward the failed policies of the Obama years."
U.S. Media: 'Telling China's Story Well'
Judith Bergman
One of the foremost tasks of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) under Xi Jinping is, at his directive, to "tell stories about China well and spread China's voice well; enable the world to see a multidimensional and colorful China; present China as a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, and an upholder of international order".
The Terrifying Scourge of 'Multiracial Whiteness'
Cockburn
Somehow, on their way to launching a neo-fascist takeover of the United States, the white supremacists ran out of whites. Simply looking at video of the Capitol riot, or looking at the FBI's wanted images afterwards, makes it obvious that the mob of Trump die-hards were multiracial. The two most famous members of the Proud Boys, America's premier 'white nationalist' group, are an Afro-Cuban and a Samoan. 'Stop the Steal' organizer Ali Alexander identifies as black and Arab.
Hush Now, Brown Person, I'll Do The Talking
David Thompson
Well, here's a thing. It turns out that "white supremacy" is surprisingly diverse. Or, as the Washington Post's headline puts it: To Understand Trump's support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness. The author of what follows, Ms Cristina Beltrán, is "an associate professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University." Her areas of expertise are needless to say sweeping and numerous, extending from "feminist theory" to "Latinx, and race & gender politic," because "Latinx" and "politic" is how we do things now.
Prof. Kristen Clarke, Biden's Pick to Lead DOJ 'Civil Rights Division,' said Black People Are 'superior' to Whites
President Joe Biden's pick to become Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division is a professor who has argued that Black people are mentally and physically superior to White people. Clarke wrote that "at the core of the human brain is the 'locus coeruleus' which is a structure that is Black because it contains large amounts of (neuro) melanin which is essential for its operation."
Biden's Climate Team:
'Systemic Racism' is to Blame for Climate Change

Two aides named by President-elect Joe Biden to handle environmental issues claim "systemic racism" is partially to blame for climate change. The Washington Free Beacon reported that Maggie Thomas has been tapped for the Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and Cecilia Martinez will serve as "senior director for environmental justice. Both incoming advisers have said racism drives climate change while insisting Biden's environmental reforms should be based on "racial and economic justice."
The Perfect Storm: Is America Ready for a Third Political Party?
Steve Rossiter
Can a new party happen? Of course it can! This is the perfect time to support the founding of a new political party. It will only require Donald Trump to pull the trigger and for solid Trump supporters to come out of the closet and become visibly active in the new party politics.
Biden's Call for Unity
Flies In the Face of Media Vitriol Toward Trump Supporters

The 46th president called for a "fresh start" and urged Americans to "listen to one another" and "show respect to one another," insisting "politics need not be a raging fire destroying everything in its path" and that "every disagreement doesn't have to be a cause for total war." However, much of the "uncivil war" was fueled by the mainstream media during the Trump presidency and the 2020 presidential election campaign, as well as in the weeks leading up to Biden's inauguration.
Court Blocks Biden HHS from Forcing
Catholic Doctors to Perform Transgender Surgery

On Monday, the day before Joe Biden became president of the United States, a federal court in North Dakota defended Roman Catholic health care providers from an Obamacare mandate forcing doctors and nurses to perform experimental transgender surgeries that violate Roman Catholic convictions. The court enjoined the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) from forcing these Catholic physicians to perform transgender surgery.
States Push for Allowing Concealed Carry of Guns Without Permit
GOP lawmakers in multiple states are aiming to relax certain gun restrictions by allowing people to carry concealed firearms without having to obtain a permit, continuing a trend that many gun control advocates say is frightening. Fifteen states already allow concealed carry without a permit, and lawmakers in nine others have proposed allowing or expanding the practice. GOP governors are backing the changes in Utah and Tennessee. Another bill expanding permitless carry in Montana has passed the state House.
‘Armed Virginia Man’ Arrested in DC Was Actually
Security Contractor; CNN Pushed a Fake Narrative

When the news first broke, CNN hyped the story to fit their narrative about how President Trump has endangered the security of Joe Biden’s upcoming inauguration. “US Capitol Police arrested a Virginia man as he attempted to pass through a police checkpoint in a locked-down zone of downtown Washington, DC, Friday with “fake” inaugural credentials, an unregistered handgun and over 500 rounds of ammunition, according to court documents,” the story first read.
Georgia Democrats Teed Off – Democrats Promised Them $2,000,
Biden Stimulus Plan Gives Them Barely $1,4000

President-elect Joe Biden released his long-awaited stimulus proposal last Thursday that contained an inauspicious provision for millions of Americans expecting additional $2,000 stimulus checks. Instead of that long-promised amount, Biden's proposal only calls for an additional $1,400 stimulus payment. Georgia voters who recently delivered the Democratic Party control of the U.S. Senate by electing Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff say they feel betrayed, let down, and outraged at what NBC Peacock host Mehdi Hasan has termed "Biden's first broken campaign promise."
Joe Biden Calls for DOJ to Resume
Obama-Era 'Slush Fund' Payouts to Left-Wing Groups

The Trump administration stopped these payments in 2017, as outlined in a Justice Department manual that initially came from a memo from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people – not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power," Sessions said in 2017.
Here Are Just 10 of the Wild Conspiracy Theories the
Left (and Media) Have Tarred Trump With for More Than 4 Years

Victoria Taft
Let's take a rambling trip down the memory lane of the Steele dossier fever dreams, "highly placed sources," and Rick Wilson's fantasies, shall we? These are the 10 Biggest Conspiracy Theories leveled against Trump. These are not in any particular order.
Employees Who Switch to Remote Work
Should Make More Money – Not Less

Martin Lindstrom
Analysts estimate that the work-from-home revolution has lifted productivity to unprecedented levels. Simultaneously, downsized office space, closed lunch rooms, halved electricity bills, and reduced cleaning and security have generated savings in the billions for corporations, big and small.
Biden's Vaccine Pitch Relies On You Being Bad at Math
Timothy P. Carney
President Biden has a coronavirus plan. The plan is to mostly continue the coronavirus plan of the Trump administration but use credulous reporters who can't do division to convince the world that he has hatched a brilliant new coronavirus plan. And up until tonight, it worked flawlessly. Now that some reporters have put some denominators into some numerators, though, Biden's on the defensive.

China's, Not Sweden's or Denmark's,
Is the Government Democrats Want

I & I Editorial Board

An American welfare state might be suitable for a few true believers on the left. But most Democrats prefer a system that partitions the elites, which they believe themselves to be, from the rest, who must be herded when necessary, shunned when that pleases the status-obsessed ruling class – and kept in their place. That matches China much closer than Sweden and Denmark.
The Capitol Hill Riot Was Pelosi's Fault, Not Trump's
Daniel Greenfield
The Capitol Police have over 2,000 sworn officers. A police force dedicated to protecting Capitol Hill has more personnel in its service than the police forces of most of the country. It's the only legislative federal force in the country that is answerable exclusively to Congress. While Democrats advocated defunding the police, their private police force budget shot up from $375 million in 2016 to $460 million in 2020. After the Capitol Hill riot, expect it to go higher.
BREAKING: DNI Ratcliffe Releases Report Showing China Interfered with the 2020 Election and CIA Pressured Analysts Not to Report It
Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe assessed that China interfered in the 2020 federal elections, according to a letter transmitted to Congress. In the letter, Ratcliffe alleges that intelligence about China’s election interference was suppressed by management at the CIA, which pressured analysts to withdraw their support for the view.
Senate Panel Releases 11 Interview Transcripts from
Investigation of Crossfire Hurricane

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday released transcripts of 11 interviews conducted as part of an investigation into the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane probe. The interviews were conducted with current and former FBI and Justice Department officials between Mar. 3 and Oct. 29, 2020, according to a press release from Sen. Lindsey Graham, who chairs the committee.
Biden Reveals Economic Relief for Businesses
Will Be Based On – Surprise! – Gender and Race

Rusty Weiss
As you might imagine, a response to Biden's pledge to segregate economic relief for businesses based on identity wasn't warmly received. Blogger Matt Walsh tweeted, "This is racial discrimination. Joe Biden should be impeached already," while a managing editor for The Federalist Carmine Sabia wrote: 'Translation: If you are a white man who owns a business you are on your own. This never ends well.'
Biden Picks Someone With No Experience To Run the CIA
Jazz Shaw
As Joe Biden continues to flesh out his cabinet and White House staff, I'm seriously beginning to wonder if anyone is actually advising him on these picks. We already discussed his curious choice of Gina Raimondo for Commerce, and now he's made an even stranger selection. For some reason, Uncle Joe has tapped former Deputy Secretary of State William Burns to take charge at the CIA.
Biden CIA Pick
Led Secret 'back channel' Negotiations for Iran Deal

William Burns, the president of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace, served as the U.S. ambassador to Jordan and to Russia, also working in a number of other key State Department posts, including deputy secretary of state from 2011 to 2014. A 2019 book by Burns, The Back Channel: A Memoir of American Diplomacy and the Case for Its Renewal, contained an entire chapter on "Iran and the Bomb: The Secret Talks."
Biden Nominates Pro-Beijing Politician to His Cabinet
President-elect Joe Biden has nominated an open supporter of the Chinese Communist Party to his cabinet. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh flew the Chinese Communist flag at Boston city hall last September in a gesture of support to the regime in Beijing. Biden wants Walsh to be his secretary of labor.
Forced from Obama Admin for Praising Mao,
Anita Dunn to Return to White House

President-elect Joe Biden will tap Anita Dunn, an Obama-administration alumna who praised Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong’s political philosophy, for senior White House adviser, Axios reported Friday. Dunn’s last stint in the White House ended after just seven months, when she resigned after former Fox News anchor Glenn Beck aired a clip of the then-communications director saying Mao was one of her "favorite political philosophers."
Ric Grenell:
Susan Rice Will Be 'shadow president' in Biden Administration

Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice has been tapped to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council in the Biden administration, but former acting DNI Ric Grenell believes she could be in control of a lot more. "I think you need to watch Susan Rice very closely," he said on "Sunday Morning Futures." "She will be the shadow president."
Biden Adviser Defends Liberal Agenda Items
In $1.9T Coronavirus Relief Plan, Dodges on Ending Filibuster

President-elect Joe Biden’s proposed coronavirus relief package would cost taxpayers $1.9 trillion, and his economic adviser defended the inclusion of several Democratic agenda items. During an interview with "Fox News Sunday," Brian Deese insisted that items including $1,400 payments to all Americans, $20 billion for public transit, $9 billion for cybersecurity, and a $15 minimum wage were all important means of helping Americans hurting during the pandemic.
The Media’s Incitement Campaign Against Congress is
What Really Radicalized Americans.

As most now recognize, the January 6th timeline disproves the claim that a singular Donald Trump speech caused simultaneous violence two miles away. He hadn’t even taken to the stage while thugs made their move on the Capitol. Thugs we now know include members of Black Lives Matter and registered Democrats. So clearly some people were pissed off at Congress, but who caused that rancor?
Did the Democrats Steal the Presidential Election?
Why So Hysterical In Their Insistence That Fraud Not Be Mentioned?

John Hinderaker
Democrats are making extraordinary efforts to suppress all discussion of whether Joe Biden actually won the 2020 presidential election. In fact, they go even farther: they want to suppress all discussion of the extent to which voter fraud occurred. That naturally makes me want to write about voter fraud, and who really won the election.
Dems want lax voting rules into the future
Profile of Domestic Terrorists at the U.S. Capitol
Doug Hagmann
Damage was assessed at over a quarter of a million dollars. The door of the Senate Minority Leader was ripped from its hinges. A valuable, stately portrait of Massachusetts Senator Daniel Webster was left in shards. Chandeliers, mirrors, and furniture were damaged beyond repair. Plaster and glass were strewn about everywhere, particularly in the Republican cloakroom behind the Senate chamber. No, this was not from January 6, 2021. The date was November 7, 1983.
Pelosi Deputy Chief of Staff Responds
After Graham Questions House Speaker Over Riot Security Failures

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill fired back at Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., after the Republican seemed to blame the Democratic leader for security failures during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol building. During an appearance on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," Graham asked, "Where was Nancy Pelosi? It's her job to provide Capitol security."
Trump Impeachment Was the Revenge of the Political Establishment
Jeff Dunetz
Well, ladies and gentlemen, if the annual tradition of impeaching Trump proves anything, it proves the political establishment won, and the American people lost. The real purpose of the congressional impeachment vote, the draining of corporate cash, and even the purging of Trump supporters on social media is for the establishment to drive home the point to the American people to never dare challenge them again.

Is there anything it can't do?
Is it Time to Regulate Social Media Like Utilities?
Betsy McCaughey
Republicans want [Big Tech] liability removed... The better approach is to treat these tech platforms as public utilities, just like water, electric, telephone, and gas companies and regulate them as utilities. Let's face it, they're monopolies, and they provide essential services to a dependent public.

Octopus of Big Tech is Strangling America
Victor Davis Hanson
Two days after the 2020 election, a defiant Kathy Griffin retweeted the notorious picture of her holding a prop that looked like the bloody head of a decapitated Donald Trump. Earlier last year, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted out a call to his followers to destroy Israel. Both tweets passed the censorship rules of Twitter's 20-something judges in San Francisco.

New Push to Kill Section 230 Protections for
Twitter, Facebook, and Big Tech

Paul Bedard
Just a week into the new Congress and days after social media erased President Trump's accounts, a key lawmaker today moved to end the immunity Big Tech firms, including Twitter and Facebook, receive under Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act. North Carolina Rep. Ted Budd told Secrets that he was putting the bill in the hopper today and hoped it would put liberal social media platforms limiting conservative voices on notice.
Turley: 'We are Witnessing the Death of Free Speech on the Internet'
Michael W. Chapman
Jonathan Turley, a professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, constitutional scholar, and columnist, said the censorship tactics of Apple, Google, Facebook, and Twitter present a "major threat to free speech," and raise questions about a new form of "state media where companies advance an ideological agenda with political allies." "[W]e are witnessing the death of free speech on the Internet," he said at his legal blog on Jan. 11.
Obama-era Officials with Big Tech Ties
Joining the Biden Administration In Droves

Former Obama-era officials with ties to Facebook and Twitter are joining Joe Biden's administration in large numbers as the social media companies censor President Donald Trump. Trump's official account has been removed from Twitter, and he's also been banned from using his Facebook or Instagram accounts for the time being as a result of the Capitol riot that took place last week.
U.S. Has Evidence Researchers in Wuhan Lab
Fell Ill Before Coronavirus Outbreak, State Department Says

The agency said that the government still does not know the true origins of the coronavirus, which has caused more than 2 million deaths across the globe. The prevailing theory, and one pushed by Chinese government officials, has been that the virus jumped from an animal to a human in Wuhan before spreading rapidly to other nations. But some U.S. officials and health experts have asserted that the virus could have accidentally leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Texas Woman Who Bragged About Ballot Harvesting

Raquel Rodriguez was filmed during an undercover project by Project Veritas, a nonprofit journalism watchdog group. She said on video footage released last year that she could deliver "at least 5,000" votes "county-wide" for $55,000 in cash and that would hire her "entire team." She acknowledged what she was discussing could land her prison time.
Parler CEO John Matze Says
Platform Will Welcome Users 'back soon' in New Status Update

Parler resurfaced online with a status update Sunday evening from chief executive officer John Matze to the alternative social media platform's "lovers and haters," noting that the company plans to welcome its users "'back soon." The announcement comes after Parler registered its domain with host sharing website Epik last week, following Amazon Web Services' decision to shut Parler down for failure to moderate "egregious content" related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Testing for NYC’s “gifted and talented” Student Program
Is Deemed Unfair, Will Be Eliminated

Most of New York City’s public schools offer a “gifted and talented” program for aspiring students. Yearly performance tests are offered to identify the kids who are overperforming in the standard disciplines. Unfortunately for Gotham’s parents, the results have failed to meet the expectations of the woke crowd running the city government. Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza have repeatedly complained that the testing program is “unfair” because the students who wind up in the program “don’t reflect the diversity of the city’s population.”
Organizations Linked to Chinese Military Are a Cash Cow for American Colleges – Bigger Player In Academia Than Previously Thought
Chinese military-linked entities, including those behind extensive cyber attacks and espionage, funneled at least $88 million into U.S. universities over the course of six years, according to a Washington Free Beacon review of federal records... Institutions controlled by the Chinese government – state-owned enterprises, state-controlled public universities, government-controlled nonprofits, and other sources – collectively donated at least $315 million to American colleges between 2014 and 2019.
University of Dallas Student
Denied Internship Solely for Being White

A female student at the University of Dallas has recently come forward with her story after being rejected from a summer internship opportunity due to being white. "It's not like I was underqualified or anything, I met everything else," said the student, who asked to remain anonymous so that her future career in the finance field is not jeopardized.

Critical Race Theory Infiltrates Government, Classrooms
Jarrett Stepman
Critical race theory combines Marxist theories of oppressor versus oppressed with the lens of race. It ultimately defines all history and human interactions as a perpetual racial conflict. Jonathan Butcher, a senior education analyst at The Heritage Foundation, who co-authored a Heritage Foundation paper on critical race theory along with Gonzalez, explained why this ideology is such a threat to America's future.

The Left's Bulk-Ballot Fraud Strategy Worked
Mark Alexander
A slim majority of Georgia voters just returned control of the nation to leftist Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who will be restored as Senate Majority Leader with the tiebreaker vote of incoming VP Kamala Harris by the end of January. Schumer will then work with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Biden/Harris regime to rapidly undo the Trump administration's initiatives and reset the nation's course back toward the tyranny of statist socialism. How did that happen in Georgia?
Communist China Is Preparing to Eat Joe Biden's Lunch
Ben Weingarten
Communist China is betting on a return to the status quo ante of American acquiescence to, and support of, its hegemonic ambitions through comprehensive "engagement" and outright appeasement under a Biden administration. That is the primary takeaway, if the recent remarks of Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi are any indication. Clearly, Beijing would only deliver such a message if it believed it had a willing partner.
House GOP United About Election Irregularities,
Divided on Constitutional Remedy, Key Lawmaker Says

House Republicans emerged from a two-hour meeting Tuesday mostly united in the belief that troublesome irregularities occurred during the November 2020 election but divided about whether there is a constitutional remedy at this late stage when Congress approves electors, a senior lawmaker told Just the News.
If Biden Halts Border Wall,
It Could Cost Taxpayers Billions, CBP Chief Warns

The Trump administration this week marked 450 miles of wall built at the southern border, and acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan told reporters earlier this week that a total of 800 miles is funded. "So in addition to the 450 that we've already got on the ground, we've got funded 350 miles of wall system to go in the ground," he said. "The overwhelming amount of those miles, that funding, the contracts have already been awarded."
Rep. Scalise Reacts to 'Soviet Style' House Rules
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) stood up on the House floor on Monday to "strongly object" to the Democrats' new House rules package. Among the provisions are the weakening of the motion to recommit, which allows members to amend a bill before it's voted upon. Now, it can only be used as a "motion to delay consideration" of a bill. "It is all designed to take away the voice of 48 percent of this House chamber," Rep. Scalise argued.
Capitol Police Face Heat Following Mob Breach
The disturbing breach of security at the U.S. Capitol is raising serious questions about the safety of lawmakers and staff who work there, and drawing criticism toward the security services who are meant to keep them safe. Images of a mob scaling walls, breaking down fences, and storming the seat of the country's Democracy have led to criticism that the Capitol Police should have been better prepared for the possible assault.
Sen. Josh Hawley Blasts 'Antifa Scumbags' for
Protesting Outside His Home

A group of far-left activists carried out a protest at Sen. Josh Hawley's Washington, DC, home over his decision to object to President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory, while his wife and baby were inside alone. On Monday evening, Hawley (R-Mo.) tweeted that "Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can't travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door."
West Virginia Lawmaker Charged In Capitol Siege Resigns
A West Virginia Republican state lawmaker who posted a video of himself storming the nation's Capitol resigned Saturday effectively immediately after being charged by federal authorities. "The past few days have certainly been a difficult time for my family, colleagues and myself, so I feel it's best at this point to resign my seat in the House and focus on my personal situation and those I love," Derrick Evans, a member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, said in his resignation letter.
Jared Kushner Brokers Deal Ending Saudi Arabia's Fight With Qatar
Saudi Arabia and its allies are expected to sign a deal Tuesday officially ending a feud with Qatar in an agreement negotiated by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, a government official confirmed Monday. The détente – designed to further isolate Iran – follows a slew of historic Middle East peace deals brokered by the Trump White House in recent months normalizing relations between Israel and some of its Arab neighbors.

Saudi Arabia has agreed to open its airspace to flights between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and to all eastward travel, according to Jared Kushner, US President Donald Trump's senior adviser. He briefed the press on Wednesday ahead of the September 15 signing ceremony for the Abraham Accord between Israel and the UAE. Addressing the decision of Saudi Arabia to open its airspace, Kushner said: "That will save people a lot of time and knock down a barrier that's been up for 72 years."

Appeals Court Upholds Bribery Conviction for
Chinese Think Tank Official with Ties to Hunter Biden

A three-judge panel on the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York has upheld the bribery conviction for Chi Ping Patrick Ho, the former Hong Kong home affairs secretary and former chairman of a think tank funded by a Chinese energy conglomerate, CEFC. A federal jury convicted Ho on Dec. 5, 2018, on charges related to violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Ho was accused of offering bribes on behalf of CEFC China Energy, a major Chinese energy conglomerate, to officials from Uganda and Chad for oil drilling rights.
Here's Proof the Pentagon Must
Get Out of the 'Climate Change' Racket

Matt Margolis
For many years now, the Pentagon has become infiltrated by liberals who want to turn the military into a division of the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, the Defense Department inspector general's annual report warns that "climate change" is a long-term threat to military installations and operations. In 2019, a Pentagon report claimed that climate change could cause our military to "collapse" in twenty years. Oh, really? I think it's about time to get the Pentagon out of the business of radical environmentalism.
New Transparency Rule Ends EPA Reliance on 'Secret Science'
On Tuesday, Andrew Wheeler, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a new transparency rule to fight the EPA's reliance on "secret science." The rule directs the EPA to rely on studies that make their data public when it comes to rulemaking.  "Too often Congress shirks its responsibility and defers important decisions to regulatory agencies. These regulators then invoke science to justify their actions, often without letting the public study the underlying data," said Wheeler.
Poll: 72% of Republicans See Trump As Model for Party's Future
When the Republican Party reorganizes itself next year, GOP voters strongly believe President Trump should remain the role model, but most think the party should look for a new face to be its next presidential candidate. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 72% of Likely Republican Voters think their party should be more like Trump than like the average GOP member of Congress. Twenty-four percent (24%) see the average Republican in Congress as a better model.
'I Am My Best Security':
Incoming U.S. Lawmaker On Why She'll Carry Gun to Capitol

Newly elected Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is taking the Capitol by storm. A Second Amendment enthusiast and vocal backer of President Trump, Boebert is the owner of a gun-themed restaurant in Rifle, Colo., called Shooters Grill. And as she notes in a new ad, she's coming to one of the top 10 most dangerous cities in the U.S. – Washington, D.C.
84 Lawmakers Stand Up for Allowing Their Own Guns at Capitol
A new congresswoman from Colorado, Rep. Lauren Boebert, has rallied 83 other representatives to counter an effort by Democratic legislators to prohibit politicians from carrying firearms in and around the Capitol. Boebert, a vocal supporter of gun rights, rallied lawmakers to oppose a measure by Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., to prohibit carrying a gun throughout the Capitol grounds.
Ohio Governor Signs Gun Bill Eliminating Duty to Retreat
An individual's duty to retreat before using force has been eliminated in Ohio under a gun rights bill signed by Republican Gov. Mike DeWine on Monday despite the governor's vocal concerns that GOP lawmakers were ignoring his own legislation proposed following the 2019 mass shooting in Dayton. The measure expands the so-called "stand your ground" right from an individual's house and car to any place, "if that person is in a place in which the person lawfully has a right to be."
Florida Sheriff Warns BLM, "I Will Deputize Gun Owners
If You Think You Can Bring Your Lawlessness Here"

For months, the Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements have gone unchecked when it comes to their behavior in American streets. They claim to be peaceful and want nothing more than their voice to be heard yet looting and violence follow them wherever they go. Since the Democrats aren't standing up to the movements, a Florida sheriff is taking it upon himself to send out a clear message to the so-called peaceful movements.
Rep. Cleaver Ends Opening Prayer for New Congress:
 'Amen and awoman'

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., altered the traditional ending of "amen" by saying "Amen and awoman" as he delivered the opening prayer for the 117th Congress on Sunday – raising eyebrows. The video was posted online and he was criticized by other lawmakers who said he was wrong to attempt to assign gender to the word "amen." Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Pa., took to Twitter to note that the word amen is "Latin for 'so be it.'"
Radical madness has begun
How Bad Is Philly? Worse Than Chicago
Robert Stacy McCain
Yesterday I took notice of the awful crime situation in Mayor Lori Lightfoot's Chicago, where homicides increased 55% last year. However, as bad as Chicago is – and frankly, I can't imagine why anyone would want to live in that Democrat-controlled hellhole – Philadelphia is actually worse. Under Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney, violent crime in Philadelphia, which was already worse than Chicago, increased more than 40% in 2020.
Iran hijacks South Korean Ship,
Boosts Uranium A Year After Soleimani Killing

Iran on Monday seized a South Korean oil tanker and announced it would boost uranium refinement, moving the country closer to nuclear weapons. The developments occurred on the first anniversary of the U.S. killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.
EU Says It Will Boost Efforts to
Save Iran Nuclear Deal Despite Violations

Despite Iran declaring that it will boost production of enriched uranium by 20 percent, its latest breach of the nuclear deal, the European Union said Tuesday that it will redouble efforts to save the 2015 agreement. Iran notified the International Atomic Energy Agency that it was boosting last week – a critical step that puts Iran on the path to reach weapons-grade levels of 90 percent.
CNN's Chris Cuomo Mocks Marco Rubio's Faith:
'Mr. Bible Boy' Has 'Bible quote for every moment'

CNN host Chris Cuomo mocked Sen. Marco Rubio's faith on Monday, referring to him as "Mr. Bible Boy" and saying "he's got a Bible quote for every moment, he just never speaks truth to power or acts on any of it." Cuomo and fellow CNN host Don Lemon, who are both labeled as news anchors despite regularly offering anti-conservative opinions, have made a habit of defending Democrats and bashing Republicans during their nightly handoffs.
Bill to Ban Biological Men from Women's Sports
Gains Bipartisan Support in Congress

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) introduced legislation to ban biological males from participating in women's sports. Gabbard, a Democrat who ran for the 2020 presidential nomination for her party, is the sponsor of H.R. 8932, the "Protect Women's Sports Act," alongside Reps. Markwayne Mullin, (R-Okla.), Bill Flores (R-Texas), Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), Rep. Alexander Mooney (R-W.V.), and Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.).
Calif. Requires Insurers to Pay for
Breast Mutilation for Gender-Confused Teens

Just before the end of 2020, California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara issued an order stating that insurance companies cannot refuse to pay for a minor girl's mastectomy just because she isn't 18 yet. He reached this conclusion by defining the surgical removal of healthy breasts and the "creation of a male chest" as medically "necessary" for girls suffering from gender dysphoria rather than "cosmetic." This means that a gender dysphoric girl's healthy chest would be considered "abnormal" if she identifies as male.
Is this insane?
Study: Trans Women Still Have Athletic Advantage
Over Women After Year of Hormone Therapy

Amid continued debate about the propriety of letting biological males who identify as females compete against biological females in athletic events, a new study indicates that after a year of hormone therapy, transgender women still maintain an athletic advantage over their female counterparts. Published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, the study examined trans men and women in the Air Force between 2013 and 2018.

Biden's 'Dark Winter' Is a Warning About His Economy, Not the Virus
I & I Editorial Board
Should President Donald Trump's election challenges fail to keep Joe Biden out of the White House, it's a certainty that bleak days will be ahead. We're staring into the barrel of at least four years of sclerotic economic growth. Six days after the election, Biden, employing the Democratic Party strategy of sowing fear whenever possible, warned that the country is facing a long night.
D'Souza: "GOP Establishment Should Realize
Trump Supporters Demand the Election Challenge"

Sundance
Dinesh D'Souza points out: "the GOP establishment must recognize there is no way forward without the Trump voters, and the Trump voters demand a challenge of the election results." I would slightly disagree with the party linguistics, but essentially D'Souza has a point. Unfortunately, the GOPe doesn't care.
Rubio Says Fauci 'lied' About Coronavirus Mask Guidance in March,
As Criticism of Health Official Builds

Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday accused top U.S. epidemiologist Anthony Fauci of lying about the efficacy of masks and misrepresenting information about the number of people who must be vaccinated in order for the U.S. to achieve herd immunity against COVID-19. "Dr. Fauci lied about masks in March[.] Dr. Fauci has been distorting the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity," Rubio, R-Fla., said in a tweet.
Trump Invokes Saint Thomas Becket in Defense of Religious Liberty.
Expect the Opposite from Biden-Harris

John Daniel Davidson
Yesterday was the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury, who was killed by followers of King Henry II of England in Canterbury Cathedral for opposing the king and asserting the rights and privileges of the church. Specifically, Becket was murdered because he refused to go along with the king's efforts to reduce clerical independence and render the church in England subservient to the crown.
More Than 400 Ex-intelligence Officers to
Investigate Election Irregularities

Over 400 people from the Intelligence Community (IC), military, law enforcement, and the judiciary have formed a loose network to investigate irregularities in the 2020 election... "The fraud was so massive and so blatant, despite what the mainstream media said, that we need to get this information out to the public," said [Robert] Caron. "That's why more and more people from the intelligence community and law enforcement are coming out, which is unheard of."
DOJ Researcher Releases Study Indicating Massive Election Fraud in
Georgia and Pennsylvania

A researcher at the Department of Justice on Tuesday released a 25-page report indicating a high probability of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. World-renown economist John Lott Ph.D., examined election results from Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as potential election fraud in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin. "This paper's approach allows us to quantify how large a potential problem vote fraud and other abnormalities might be in the 2020 election," Dr. Lott wrote.
Expert: Biden Win 'suspicious,'
289,000 Election-Changing 'excess' Votes

Paul Bedard
An analysis of the 2020 presidential vote suggests that there were 289,000 "excess" votes for Joe Biden in states his victory over President Trump was small, and that differences in votes by neighbors were "suspicious." "The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden's win in both states. The voter turnout rate data also indicates that there are significant excess votes in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin as well," wrote Lott in his report.
Pennsylvania Republicans Find 'Alarming Discrepancy'
Twice the Margin of Biden's Victory

According to the GOP analysis, county election results showed 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while the SURE system indicated that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted, which is a difference of 202,377 votes. The Republicans said this 202,377 gap, coupled with 31,547 fewer presidential race votes seen in county data, amounts to "an alarming discrepancy" of 170,830 votes, which is more than twice the reported statewide difference between Biden and Trump.
Judge Sister of Stacey Abrams Fails to Recuse Herself,
Rules Against Voter Purge Before Senate Runoffs

The 11-page ruling by U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner on Monday came after two counties voted to remove a tranche of names from their voter rosters based on two separate complaints that alleged that public voter registration data matched unverified change-of-address records by the U.S. Postal Service.
Court Upholds Bribery Conviction of
Chinese Exec Patrick Ho Linked to Hunter Biden

Ye Jianming, who had ties to the Chinese military and intelligence services, was the chairman of CEFC until he disappeared after being taken into custody by Chinese authorities in early 2018. Documents obtained by The Post show Hunter Biden, the son of President-elect Joe Biden, reached a deal with Ye for half-ownership of a holding company that was expected to provide him with more than $10 million a year for making "introductions." In other correspondence between Hunter Biden and CEFC, he said that any deals struck would be "interesting for me and my family."
Multiple Senators Oppose Certifying Election Results
A growing number of Republican senators – led by Ted Cruz – announced today they also will object to certifying state Electoral College votes on Wednesday and called for resurrecting an Electoral Commission to conduct an emergency audit of the results. Cruz, who, like Hawley, is thought to be considering a 2024 presidential bid, released a statement this afternoon announcing his plans, shortly after Axios first reported about them. Several other GOP senators are now expected to follow in a coordinated effort they consider distinct from Hawley's.
Utah's Burgess Owens Listed Among GOP House Members
Backing Electoral Vote Challenge

Utah Republican Congressman-elect Burgess Owens is among a group of incoming House members who plan to back Rep. Mo Brooks' effort to object to the certification of the presidential election results next week. Owens joins other newly elected GOP lawmakers who support Brooks' long-shot challenge to the Electoral College ballots from several states that President-elect Joe Biden won, according to Fox News.
Dems Flip Out Over GOP Objection to Electoral College Count,
But Hawley Exposes Their Hypocrisy

Nick Arama
Folks on the left have been melting down over Republicans like Rep. Mo Books (R-AL) and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) saying they will object to the Electoral College vote count on January 6... While Democrats are now attacking Hawley and the rest for using the rule to object, Democrats seem to forget that the last three times there have been Electoral College "objections," they've all been from Democrats with far less cause than at present.
The 12th Amendment Plan: A Pence Path to a Contingent Election
Dr. Brad Lyles
In the past several days pro-Trump pundits began floating the idea that Vice-President/President of the Senate, Mike Pence, actually possesses plenary power to accept or reject Electoral votes he believes are fraudulent or fraudulently certified. These Trump-supporters point to the 12th Amendment as the basis for this allegation.
Democrats Have Objected to Electoral Vote Certification for the
Last Three GOP Presidents

Rick Moran
"This is America. We have elections. We have results. We make arguments based on the fact and reason -- not conspiracy and fantasy," he added. There's only one problem with Chucky's "argument based on fact and reason." Democrats have been challenging the electoral vote certification for two decades. Democrats are outraged that Republicans are planning on objecting to the certification of electoral votes. It's "conspiracy and fantasy," says Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Egg on Their Faces: 10 Climate Alarmist Predictions for 2020
That Went Horribly Wrong

Long before Beto O'Rourke claimed the world only had 10 years left for humans to act against climate change, alarmists had spent decades predicting one doomsday scenario after another, each of which stubbornly failed to materialize. It seems climate armageddon has taken a permanent sabbatical. Many of those doomsday predictions specifically mentioned the annus horribilus of 2020. Those predictions also failed, some rather spectacularly.

New Evidence That the Ancient Climate
Was Warmer than Today's

Two recently published studies confirm that the climate thousands of years ago was as warm or warmer than today's – a fact disputed by some believers in the narrative of largely human-caused global warming. That was an era when CO2 levels were much lower than now, long before industrialization and SUVs. One study demonstrates that the period known as the Roman Warming was the warmest in the last 2,000 years. The other study provides evidence that it was just as warm up to 6,000 years ago.
New York Can't Buy Its Way Out of Coming Blackouts
David Wojick, PhD
New York City will soon be home to the world's biggest industrial-scale battery system. It's designed to back up the city's growing reliance on intermittent "renewable" electricity. At 400 megawatt-hours (MWh)... When it comes to the scale needed to reliably back up unreliable pretend-renewable electricity generation – and keep business, industry, social media and civilization functioning – New York's and America's policy makers need to start living in the Real World. Otherwise blackouts will become common.
The Pennsylvania Voting Numbers Don't Add Up
Even putting aside for the moment the very real possibility/probability of fraud, it is clear that the system is ridiculously compromised. It is now nearly two months after Election Day, Pennsylvania is a disputed state and has been from the start, and this vote-count discrepancy is just being discovered? These figures should be one of the first things tabulated and compared once all the votes are counted, any discrepancy should not take two months to be discovered and announced.
Tech Expert Shocks GA Election Fraud Hearing With News
He 'Got Into' Voting System With WiFi

Tech expert Jovan Hutton Pulitzer claimed that to the extent there were election issues in Georgia, they could be explained by simply looking at the paper ballots. And he claimed to prove in real time that the system was susceptible to manipulation via WiFi because his team had broken in and were in it at the time of the hearing. Pulitzer basically threw down, telling a Georgia Senate subcommittee looking into voter fraud to show him the ballots, give him two hours, and he'd show them if there was election fraud in Fulton County.

"We're In" – Witness Testifies Dominion Voting Equipment,
and Internal Data, Hacked Live During Georgia Senate Hearing

This is rather remarkable. In real time, during live testimony before a Georgia Senate Committee, a witness testifies to using Wifi capability to enter the Fulton County voting system via the internet while the hearing was ongoing.
Will the Left Media Ever Pay for Trump-Era Malpractice?
Stephen Kruiser
While Joe Biden's almost five decades of lackluster time as a plagiarist/buffoon in Washington may have given him the name recognition to run for president, it was the vile behavior of the American mainstream media that helped him perpetrate the greatest fraud in American electoral history. The double-whammy of the MSM lying about President Trump and lying for the senile idiot in the basement made it easier for the Dems to pull off the Magic Mail-In 80 Million Vote circus.

STUNNING: All Major Western Media Outlets Take 'Private Dinners', 'Sponsored Trips' from Chinese Communist Propaganda Front
A host of corporate media outlets including CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and MSNBC have participated in private dinners and sponsored trips with the China-United States Exchange Foundation, a Chinese Communist Party-funded group seeking to garner "favorable coverage" and "disseminate positive messages" regarding China, The National Pulse can reveal. Other outlets involved in the propaganda operation include Forbes, the Financial Times, Newsweek, Bloomberg, Reuters, ABC News, the Economist, the Wall Street Journal, AFP, TIME magazine, LA Times, The Hill, BBC, and The Atlantic.

14 Profs Busted for China Connections in 2020

Multiple professors and researchers have been exposed for their alleged ties to China in 2020. Ranging from allegedly lying to federal authorities, to attempting to steal proprietary research and information, the past months have shown several alleged secret Chinese agents working in American higher education. National Association of Scholars Communications Coordinator Chance Layton said that  "America's colleges and universities are far too dependent on foreign nations." Layton added that many university administrators rely on the sponsorship of programs from nations such as "Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Russia, China, and others."

Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal Sues Twitter

A Delaware computer repairman who went public with the sordid contents of Hunter Biden's hard drive is now suing Twitter for defamation – claiming its content moderation unfairly branded him a "hacker." In his suit, the Delaware man said he was forced to close his store and alleges that Twitter acted with "malicious intent" by claiming that he had hacked Hunter Biden's laptop. He is demanding $500 million in damages and a public retraction from the company.
Minnesota Lawmakers Say Coronavirus Deaths Could Be
Inflated By 40% After Reviewing Death Certificates

Two Minnesota state lawmakers are calling for an audit of death certificates that were attributed to the coronavirus, saying COVID-19 deaths could have been inflated by 40%. State Rep. Mary Franson and state Sen. Scott Jensen released a video last week revealing that after reviewing thousands of death certificates in the state, 40% did not have COVID-19 as the underlying cause of death. Franson said she and a team reviewed 2,800 "death certificate data points" and found that about 800 of them did not have the virus as the underlying cause of death.
'A Direct and Severe Violation':

On Monday, a panel of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction against Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D-N.Y.) COVID-19 orders placing strict limits on houses of worship in hot spots. The 2nd Circuit panel agreed with the Supreme Court that Cuomo's order likely does not satisfy the high standard of strict scrutiny and therefore violates the First Amendment.
COVID Red Flag Laws Coming to a State Near You
Nina Bookout
There are major MAJOR Constitutional concerns embedded in this legislation. This Wuhan lung flu rot has brought attention to how states do and DON'T protect our Constitutional rights. Michigan, Kentucky, California, Ohio, Minnesota, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, AND New York are prime examples of how the arbitrary lockdown mandates (NOT LAWS) have stripped us of our Constitutional rights.
The Fight to Keep Schools Closed Has Proven
Thomas Sowell Right About Teachers' Unions

Jack Elbaum
One of the first things we learned about the coronavirus is that it has a near-zero death rate for kids. We also soon found that children are far less likely to transmit the virus than adults. Considering these facts, one might reasonably expect that schools would be some of the first institutions to reopen amid government-mandated pandemic lockdowns and stay-at-home restrictions. This, however, is not what has happened.
Your Tax Dollars at Work: Man Convicted of Raping His Daughter
Approved for Transgender Surgery

Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that the Wisconsin Department of Corrections cannot deny transgender surgery to a man convicted of raping his 10-year-old daughter. The ruling also means Wisconsin will put the man in a woman's prison. U.S. District Judge James Peterson approved the request of Mark Allen Campbell, a 49-year-old Wisconsin man who identifies as female and goes by the name "Nicole Rose," to undergo transgender surgery at taxpayer expense.
Camper Recounts Abuse at Warnock Church Camp
Among the indignities 12-year-old Anthony Washington endured at the church camp overseen by Reverend Raphael Warnock: counselors who tossed urine on him and locked him outside his cabin overnight.

Keith Olbermann Demands Prison Time for President Trump,
Ivanka and Don Jr. In Deranged Rant

Not even the prospect of a Biden-Harris administration will satisfy the more deranged elements of the so-called resistance who are braying for revenge. Biden's "win" and likely installation into the White House has done nothing to pacify the demons that are frolickingicking inside of Keith Olberman's head and the unhinged former MSNBC anchor is now calling for the post-inauguration imprisonment of President Trump and his children.

Yes, It Was a Stolen Election
You'd Have to Be Blind Not to See It

John Perazzo
As Americans continue to watch the 2020 election controversy unfold, the very same publications that spent years lying about President Trump's "Russia collusion" are once again telling us what we are dutifully supposed to believe... But so much for what the comic books have to say. What follows is a compilation of vital facts that will demonstrate, to anyone interested in following the truth wherever it may lead, that the 2020 presidential election was indeed rife with fraud, and that Joe Biden, if he should in fact be sworn into office next month, will be an illegitimate president from the very start.
Dems Claim to Champion Poor and Minorities,
But Hurt Them with Job-Killing COVID Lockdowns

Stephen Moore
Democrats and their liberal economic advisers obsess about income inequality. Will someone please tell them that no act in modern times has widened the gap between the rich and the poor more than the coronavirus lockdowns going on right now? Politico reported that minorities and the poor have "been more vulnerable to job and income losses from the ensuing economic crisis, in large part because Black and Latino workers are over-represented in the service industries wiped out by shutdowns."
Gingrich: Trump Legal Team Must Make
'Dramatically Stronger and Clearer Case' on Election Fraud

Trump campaign lawyers "have not succeeded" in convincing the American people that the outcome of last month's presidential election should be challenged, Newt Gingrich told Just the News on Wednesday. While he remains hopeful Congress will contest the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6, "that doesn't mean they get anywhere," said the former Speaker of the House. "The country has to be convinced, and right now, it's not, that this election was fraudulent."

Georgia Secretary of State Joins GOP Push to
End No-Excuse Absentee Voting, Require Voter ID

"The no-excuse system voted into law in 2005 – long before most of you, if not all of you, long before I was in the General Assembly – it makes no sense when we have three weeks of in-person early voting available," Raffensberger said. "It opens the door to potential illegal voting, especially in light of the federal rules that deny us the ability to keep voter lists, registration files, clean." ... Raffensberger also called to impose a voter ID requirement for absentee ballots instead of the current signature-matching system, which could be subjective.

Back in 1983 the American Wind Industry Association claimed that solar and wind would be "competitive and self-supporting on a national level by the end of the decade if assisted by tax credits and augmented by federally sponsored R&D". That was 36 years ago. With their 40th birthdays approaching, the wind and solar 'industries' are a pair of perpetual infants who – like Peter Pan – are determined to never grow up.
Joe Biden's Climate Czar Gina McCarthy is a
Far-Left Swamp Creature

President-Elect Joe Biden has picked Gina McCarthy, head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Barack Obama and president of the leftist environmental group National Resources Defense Council, to become his climate czar. The position does not require Senate confirmation but would have a significant impact across the federal government as McCarthy is expected to guide climate policy at Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and even Treasury.
U.S. Democrats Consider 'climate emergency' to
Bypass U.S. Senate

Whether it's through their attempts of "legislation" by regulation, litigation, or the pressure of Wall Street's corporatists, the climate warriors have long shown an interest in bypassing the usual democratic procedures in order to get their agenda through, and there is no doubt that some of the coercive measures that have been put in place to combat the pandemic will have given them additional ideas. That's not a good thing.
Georgia Election Official Who Smacked Trump for Election Challenge
Reports Woman for Using His Address to Cast Illegal Vote

Georgia's Elections Manager Gabriel Sterling has been dismissive of the idea there was fraud involved in the Georgia election. In fact, Sterling, who has a history of anti-Trump comments, slammed Trump and Republicans in a December 1 press conference over efforts to challenge the vote. However, Sterling's tune changed when the fraud hit his doorstep. Sterling says the woman he bought his house from used his address to secure and submit an absentee ballot.

On Tuesday, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters said that she would like to see President Donald Trump "marched out" of the White House by either the military or Secret Service. Waters made her comments during an interview on MSNBC with Ayman Mohyeldin. Also about Nancy Pelosi: "She [Pelosi] said she's counting down the hours until he's gone" Mohyeldin said. Pretending to speak as Pelosi, he continued, "'I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands, and his feet.'"

Dark Money Behemoth That Hosts BLM Foundation
Received $16 Million in Government Grants

The dark money network that houses the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation received nearly $16 million in taxpayer-funded grants last year, financial filings reveal. The Tides Center, a California-based nonprofit incubator, reported the government grants on its 2019 tax forms. It operates by acting as a fiscal sponsor to several left-wing nonprofits, including the BLM Global Network Foundation, which has advocated for abolishing the nuclear family and defunding the police.
Impeachment Star Witness Was Aware of Burisma Corruption
Tom Fitton
Turns out that one of the Democrats' star witnesses in their sham impeachment of President Trump – former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie "Masha" Yovanovitch – seemed to have been shading the truth. Are you at all surprised? We just received 210 pages of records from the State Department showing that Yovanovitch had specifically warned in 2017 about corruption allegations against Burisma Holdings. However, during her November 2019 testimony in the impeachment proceedings, Yovanovitch told lawmakers that she knew little about Burisma.
Coronavirus Package Allows Feds to Import
More Foreign Workers as 17.8M Americans are Jobless

A spending bill, labeled as a relief package for Americans during the Chinese coronavirus crisis, will allow federal bureaucrats to import more foreign workers to take blue-collar jobs in the United States – even as 17.8 million Americans remain jobless. A provision slipped into the more than 5,590-page spending bill allows the Department of Homeland Security and Labor Department to import more foreign labor competition against Americans at their discretion.
Joe Biden's Niece Caroline Gets No Jail Time After DUI Guilty Plea
[S]mall print shows Biden, 33, won't see a day behind bars after she negotiated a plea deal with the Montgomery County district attorney. Instead of jail, she got five-plus months of probation, with 20 days of rehab in January counted toward her sentence. The walk-free plea continues a long Biden family tradition of avoiding jail time. A Post investigation in July found at least eight other busts of Bidens resulted in wrist slaps.
Long list of priors. Drugs found. No license.
Biden Pledges Tuition-Free Community College for All;
Finds More Taxpayer Funded Goodies in Christmas Stocking

In a tweet Wednesday, President-elect Joe Biden pledged to make community college tuition-free, while offering a similar benefit for students from families with working-class incomes or lower to attend state schools as well. Biden wrote that a high school diploma is no longer enough for the occupational demands of the 21st Century.

It's Time for the 'Deplorables' to Become the Unconquerables
Glenn Harlan Reynolds
Democrats won the election, but they don't seem very happy about it. And with reason: The election failed in its main purpose, which was to shut down the Deplorables. The Deplorables, in Hillary Clinton's infamous term, are working- and middle-class people who haven't bought into the progressive agenda. They're people who don't see the rise of the tech oligarchy as a plus, who don't think "woke" politics make sense, who have jobs that produce tangible outputs. They're nearly half the country.
Dominion Voting System "Designed...to Create Systemic Fraud"
Soeren Kern
"We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication." – Allied Security Operations Group, Antrim Michigan Forensics Report, Revised Preliminary Summary, v2, December 13, 2020.
Forensics Report on Mich. County's Voting Machines Claims Dominion 'Intentionally and Purposefully Designed' for 'Fraud'
The Antrim County, Mich., forensics report undertaken by Allied Security Operations Group was released to the public on Monday by order of a Michigan judge... The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.
Michigan Judge Orders Release of Damning Forensics Report of
Dominion Vote Tabulation System, Full Forensics Report

After considerable legal filings intended to block the release of a forensic report of Antrim County Dominion vote tabulation systems, a Michigan judge has lifted a gag order allowing the plaintiff, Allied Security Operations Group, to publicly release the findings. The results of the forensic audit, while limited only to the vote tabulations in Antrim county, are damning for the Michigan system of elections.
Michigan Recount Confirms Trump Won County That Went to Biden
Samantha Chang
In the ongoing comedy of errors that is the 2020 presidential election, a recount confirmed that President Donald Trump won Michigan's Antrim County, even though the election night results appeared to show that Joe Biden had taken the county. Antrim uses Dominion Voting Systems machines and software, which have come under fire amid allegations of "glitches" that conservatives say seem to always work against Republicans. A Dec. 13 forensic audit by an independent group concluded that Dominion machines were "intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results."
Election's Over So AMA Says Docs Can Use Hydroxychloroquine to Treat COV, How Many Died Unnecessarily?
M. Dowling
The American Medical Association has officially rescinded a previous statement against the use of Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Physicians can use it at their discretion. In March, the AMA had issued a statement that was highly critical of HCQ in regards to its use as a proposed treatment by some physicians in the early stages of COVID-19.

Joe Biden's Beyond-Puzzling Cabinet Picks
NY Post Editorial Board
Is Joe Biden using a dartboard to fill out his Cabinet? Some of his choices strike us as awful, ideology-wise, but many make no sense at all. All in all, these picks can only add to the nation's worries about just how much Biden's lost off his mental fastball. It's going to be a long and confusing four years.
The Smartest Guy Joe Knows Is Pretty Dumb
Jeff Crouere
Throughout the scandals of the last few years, former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly heaped praise on his troubled son Hunter. In several interviews, including one this week, he has referred to Hunter as the "smartest guy" he knows. To make such a statement, it is clear that Joe Biden needs a much larger circle of acquaintances. Is Joe Biden even qualified to identify a smart person? In fact, how smart is Joe Biden? The record shows he is the antithesis of smart.
Hunter Biden in 2017 Sent 'best wishes' from 'entire Biden family' to
China Firm Chairman, Requested $10M Wire

Correspondence between Hunter Biden and CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming from 2017 shows President-elect Joe Biden's son extending "best wishes from the entire Biden family," and urging the chairman to "quickly" send a $10 million wire to "properly fund and operate" the Biden joint venture with the now-bankrupt Chinese energy company. Fox News obtained an email Hunter Biden sent on June 18, 2017, to Zhao Runlong at CEFC, asking that they please "translate my letter to Chairman Ye, please extend my warmest best wishes and that I hope to see the Chairman soon."
Hunter Biden Appears to Have Known About Investigation
Into Business Dealings Long Before He Claimed

Last week, Joe Biden's son Hunter gave media outlets the green light to cover his scandals by releasing a statement saying he learned on December 8 "for the first time" that his financial dealings were under investigation. But as Mark Hemingway noted at RealClearPolitics, earlier reporting – that was ignored by mainstream media outlets – showed it is likely Hunter knew about the investigations much earlier than he now claims.
Congress Passes Stopgap Bill to Avoid Government Shutdown;
Coronavirus Relief Deal Reached

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday evening said lawmakers have reached a long-awaited coronavirus relief bill, though it will be hours before the full details are made public, Fox News has learned. Lawmakers, meanwhile, passed a one-day stopgap spending bill to prevent a government shutdown at midnight Sunday. After days of negotiations, McConnell said he was "relieved" that a deal was in the offing.
Biden Fundraiser Floated as Ambassador Pick Took Millions in
PPP Loans While His Law Firm Won Massive Settlements

Joseph Rice, cofounder of the South Carolina-based Motley Rice law firm, helped raise large sums for Biden's campaign and could land an ambassadorship spot in his administration, local reports indicate. Motley Rice received $7.03 million from Paycheck Protection Program funds, which were intended to help small businesses pay workers and stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ken Starr to Senate:
Pennsylvania 'flagrantly violated' Laws Ahead of Presidential Election

At a Senate oversight committee hearing on Wednesday, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said that experts must be given the opportunity to examine and investigate the Dominion Voting Systems machines used during the 2020 presidential election. "The most difficult allegations to assess involve vulnerabilities in voting machines and the software used," said Johnson.
Jill Biden's Doctorate is Garbage Because
Her Dissertation is Garbage

Kyle Smith
You can tell someone is smarting from an inferiority complex when he insists on being addressed as "Dr." on the basis of holding an academic doctorate rather than being a physician. Ph.D. holders who have genuine accomplishments don't make you call them "Doctor" ... Insisting on being called "Doctor" when you don't heal people is, among most holders of doctorates, seen as a gauche, silly, cringey ego trip. Consider "Dr." Jill Biden, who doesn't even hold a Ph.D. but rather a lesser Ed.D., something of a joke in the academic world.
The College-Debt Debate Is a Culture-War Battle;
Welfare for the Affluent – Paid by Those of Modest Means

The majority of student debt is held by relatively high-income people, poor people mostly are not college graduates, and those who attended college but did not graduate hold relatively little college-loan debt, etc. As the New York Times puts it, "Debt relief overall would disproportionately benefit middle- to upper-class college graduates." Which ones? "Especially those who attended elite and expensive institutions, and people with lucrative professional credentials like law and medical degrees."
One Simple Statistic Shows Cuomo is Destroying
NYC's Restaurant Industry for No Reason

Brad Polumbo
At least 4,500 restaurants in New York City have permanently closed their doors in the wake of COVID-19 lockdowns. Thanks to Governor Andrew Cuomo's latest dictate, that number looks sure to surge. Amid rising COVID-19 cases, the Democrat ordered an end to all indoor dining in New York City starting on Monday. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has fully supported this mandate.
Andrew Cuomo's Anti-Science, Job-Killing,
Utterly Senseless NYC Indoor Dining Shutdown

NY Post Editorial Board
What a lump of coal to put in the stockings of struggling bars and restaurants and their thousands of workers: Gov. Cuomo is banning indoor dining in the city as of Monday – though his own data show such businesses account for very little of the state's COVID-19 spread. In other words, he's ignoring the science as he puts even more New Yorkers out of work in a dismal economy just two weeks before Christmas.
The Biggest Threat to Our Country is Misinformation
Rep. Chris Stewart
In our modern world, our quest for truth requires constant work. Content shoots at us like water through a firehose, blending bias, opinion and facts that are nearly impossible to differentiate, leaving us pinned against a wall of doubt. Many people tell me they have given up on network news, major newspapers and especially the internet.
Ohio Allows High Schoolers to Wrestle,
But Forbids Shaking Hands Before, After Matches

As you may know, wrestling is the one sport which features a very high degree of bodily contact. And in this coronavirus-laden atmosphere, one might think that, of all sports, it should be skipped this year. But the Ohio High School Athletic Association feels differently.

Potential House Vote to Overturn Iowa Election Results
Could Spell Trouble for Another Iowan

Democrat Rita Hart said she'll petition the U.S. House of Representatives to ultimately decide who won her congressional contest against Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks in Iowa's 2nd Congressional District. It was the closest House race in the nation, with Iowa certifying Miller-Meeks as the winner with a margin of just six votes. If the Democratic-led House decides to hear Hart's case, then that could kick off a scenario where all members of Congress would have to cast a vote on whether Hart should be seated as the official representative in the 2nd District.
It's Really CHINA CHINA CHINA
Former Ohio-Based Researcher Pleads Guilty to
Selling American Medical Secrets In China

A former employee of the Ohio-based Nationwide Children's Hospital's Research Institute has pleaded guilty to selling American research secrets in China. Yu Zhou, 50, formerly of Dublin, Ohio, admitted to conspiring to steal scientific trade secrets related to research, identification and treatment of a range of pediatric medical conditions.
Dems Predict Taxpayer-Funded Abortions Next Year
Katie Yoder
Democrats and abortion activists are renewing the call to end the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortion. Instead, they want tax dollars to go towards a woman's "deeply personal life decisions." But when American taxpayers are forced to pay for that decision, abortion – the ending of a human life – surfaces as a public matter in a very obvious way.
Senate Confirmation of Barrett Replacement
Adds to Trump's Record On Judges

President Trump continued to add to his tally of successful judicial appointments Tuesday with the confirmation of Thomas Kirsch II as a judge on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Kirsch, who had served as the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Indiana, is filling the position that was left vacant when Justice Amy Coney Barrett left the Seventh Circuit to join the Supreme Court.
HOT MIC: Ontario Top Doc Caught Saying Health Information
She Delivers Is 'whatever they write down for me'

During the short clip, Dr. Yaffe can be heard joking with Dr. Williams that she doesn't know "why I bring all these papers, I never look at them." After a slightly inaudible response from Dr. Williams, Yaffe can be heard responding "I just say whatever they write down for me." Both then chuckle.

Tulsi Gabbard's Last Stand
Is Gabbard Plotting a Populist Takeover?

Amber Athey
Tulsi Gabbard will retire from Congress at the end of the year. The Hawaii representative is going out with a bang, introducing several bills that show why she is so despised by her establishment Democratic counterparts – and why she could potentially become a very powerful broker in the American political realignment.
