GOP's Old Guard Out of Touch with Their Voters on Election Integrity
Biden is lobbying to end the Senate's legislative filibuster in order to push through his plan for a radical takeover of elections. The election bill would unconstitutionally empower the federal government to control state election procedures, and help make permanent the decreased election safeguards that caused so many problems throughout the country in 2020. The response of the old guard of the Republican Party this week has been to wholeheartedly endorse the media narrative that the 2020 election had no significant problems, while also opposing Biden's plan to run elections.
"I Know for a FACT
HCQ and Ivermectin Work to Treat COVID!"
Forget the "novel virus." The quest for "novel" COVID drugs and the profits they bring have been the real problem all along. So said Dr. Pierre Kory, the Wisconsin intensive care physician and lung specialist who reportedly treated hundreds of congressmen for coronavirus with a medication that's apparently not good enough (or too good?) for the rest of us: ivermectin. In reality, Kory is hardly alone in treating, and curing, people sick with the pathogen. Just consider internist Dr. Syed Haider, who has gotten media exposure of late for his success in this regard. Haider "has treated more than 4,000 COVID-19-positive patients so far during the pandemic," according to Udumbara, writing last week. "Just five ended up going to a hospital, and none have died."

Let's put this crazy J6 "insurrection" lunacy into perspective.
The Democrats' January 6 clown show was worse than even I expected. Their hysterical, pearl-clutching, lie-filled response to the events on January 6th, what Democrats are clearly hoping will be their transformative Reichstag moment, is unseemly, phony to its core, and purely and solely political. We know this because there was no outrage over the leftist rioters who attempted to stop the peaceful transition of power during President Trump's inauguration.

If, as Biden and Harris (and pretty much every Democrat in America) suggest, the Jan. 6 defendants had stormed the Capitol with the intent of overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election, then why have none of them been charged with it?
|In Reporting Shift,|
AP Tells Staff to 'Avoid Emphasizing' COVID-19 Case Counts
The AP has written dozens of stories about cases surging in certain areas but has decided to shift its focus due to the rise of the Omicron variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19, and the lack of inclusion in case counts among people who test themselves at home, the service said. The shift means the wire will produce "no more stories focused solely on a particular country or state setting a one-day record for number of cases, because that claim has become unreliable," AP reported.

Dr Pierre Kory
Since the summer of 2020, U.S. public health agencies have continually shut down the use or even discussion of generic treatments that are minimally profitable.

Instead, the Biden administration has thrown its political weight almost solely behind mass vaccinations, and hospitals and pharmacies have dogmatically followed suit. But this approach is proving insufficient to arrest COVID-19.

The North American Platform Against Windpower (NA-PAW) was formed in early 2009, following the example of the European Platform Against Windpower (EPAW) which was founded in Paris on October 4, 2008, by French, German, Spanish, and Belgian organizations. Since then, more than 600 organizations from 24 countries have joined EPAW in a call for a halt to industrial wind facility construction to conduct a thorough study of wind power's effects on the environment, people's lives, the economy, and the energy system.

Ohio's Senate Bill 52 is a game changer. Without comment or fanfare, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed into law a requirement that significantly raises the bar for new wind and solar projects, effective October 9, 2021. More good news for community cohesion and property values. The Ohio Power Siting Board killed the Republic Wind proposal.
|Lithium Turmoil: Chilean President
Gabriel Boric Squeezing Miners
While Chile is not the only global source of Lithium, Chile is a major player, producing 22% of global supply. Any interruption to Chilean Lithium production could stress an already tight market, potentially disrupting global electric vehicle rollout plans. My guess is international miners are wondering whether Gabriel Boric is another Hugo Chavez, whether Chile will suffer the same anti-capitalist madness which crashed oil production in Venezuela.
|Pennsylvania Gets Christmas-Day
Illegal Aliens from Biden Claus
Some people call them "ghost flights" – federally chartered planes that arrive in the dead of night at airports far from the U.S. border and deep inside the country's interior. They drop off their cargo of illegal aliens, who are immediately boarded onto waiting buses and distributed who-knows-where. Flight manifests are never made available by the government, even to the contractors who fly the planes for them and especially not to local officials.
|Arctic Ocean Warming Began Already
In Early 20th Century,
Meaning Natural Factors Strongly At Play, Not CO2
An international group of researchers reconstructed the recent history of ocean warming at the gateway to the Arctic Ocean in a region called the Fram Strait, between Greenland and Svalbard, and found that the Arctic Ocean has been warming for much longer than earlier records have suggested... The researchers say that their results also expose a possible flaw in climate models, because they do not reproduce this early Atlantification at the beginning of the last century.
More Evidence: Glaciers Existing Today
Were Absent for Nearly All of the Last 10,000 Years
The cryosphere is failing to cooperate with the anthropogenic global warming narrative that says rising greenhouse gas emissions should be catastrophically melting Arctic ice.
Yet Another Man-Made Crisis.
I actually have friends who sail. Like sail across the Atlantic and pacific, for the heck of it. And some years ago I started smelling a rat, at the hysteria over "floating islands of garbage" and the Denver Zoo's cutesy display of plastic from the ocean and oh, the humanity! The first rat I smelled is that none of these long term sailors had seen these islands. The second rat is that all the plastic in the displays was obviously not American.

Majority of People Believe
There Are Only Two Genders
With all this ridiculousness about gender being a social construct, the existence of a gender spectrum, gender fluidity, or who else knows what else, it's easy to feel you're in the minority if you believe in the biological fact that there are only two genders, male and female. But you're not in the minority. Far from it. You are part of the overwhelming majority. According to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, "75% of American Adults agree that there are only two genders, male and female. That total includes 63% who Strongly Agree. Eighteen percent (18%) disagree."

A second producer for one of CNN's top media personalities is reportedly under criminal investigation for "serious allegations" involving potential juvenile victims.

During the segment, she admitted to reporter Katilan Collins that the change "really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate."

A meta-analysis of 127 studies conducted in 2017 revealed that daily drinking two to four 8-ounce cups of coffee decreases risk of cancer bly 20 percent, Type 2 diabetes by 30 percent, and Parkinson's by 30 percent. Furthermore, a huge study in the UK found that those who drink a LOT of coffee live longer than those who don't. In 2021, however, scientists discovered three new advantages to drinking coffee, which to my mind is a great reason to celebrate:

It's So Bad That It's Taking People's Breath Away
The Texas audit of the 2020 election in a sample of major counties shows that the status quo for the state's elections simply cannot be allowed to continue. The audit results found that thousands of potential non-U.S. citizens were identified as registered to vote. Although the audit did not reveal enough irregularities to potentially have swayed the election (that Donald Trump won in Texas), it does raise the following major concerns:

Victor Davis Hanson
In a recent Washington Post op-ed, three retired generals, Paul Eaton, Antonio Taguba, and Steven Anderson, warn of a supposedly impending coup should Donald Trump be elected in 2024. The column seemed strangely timed to coincide with a storm of recent Democratic talking points that a re-elected Trump, or even a Republican sweep of the 2022 midterms, would spell a virtual end of democracy. Ironies abound.
|The January 6
Roger Kimball – Imprimis
An "insurrection," as the dictionary will tell you, is a violent uprising against a government or other established authority. Unlike the violent riots that swept the country in the summer of 2020 – the January 6 protest at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. lasted a few hours, caused minimal damage, and the only person directly killed was an unarmed female Trump supporter who was shot by a Capitol Police officer.

West Virginian business owners and stakeholders are speaking out in support of Sen. Joe Manchin's opposition to Build Back Better and voicing their frustration over what they see as the media's misrepresentation of their state's best interests. Media outlets all over the country have published articles and op-eds blasting Sen.

Many racial differences in health outcomes have nothing to do with racism.

But the Biden administration is now giving doctors a financial incentive to blame "differences in health outcomes" on "systemic racism" against minorities...

Now the Secret Service is chiming in with at least a partial answer to that mystery.

Jeffrey Toobin masturbates on a Zoom call in front of his colleagues. A sexual misconduct claim led to the firing of Chris Cuomo. Ole Chris was good buddies with CNN producer John Griffin. Indeed, their public social media posts indicate a thriving "bromance." So what's the deal with all the perverts and pedophiles at CNN?

This is another CNN producer, Rick Saleeby, whom Project Veritas busted last week for allegedly soliciting explicit photos of his fiancé's underage daughter. Project Veritas got the ball rolling, and now we're hearing that Fairfax County police have seized Saleeby's electronics and hard drives.

Last year, our nation experienced the largest increase in murder in American history and the largest number of drug overdose deaths ever recorded. This carnage continues today and is not distributed equally. Instead, it is concentrated in cities and localities where radical, left-wing, George Soros progressives have captured state and district attorney offices. These legal arsonists condemn our rule of law as "systemically racist" and have not simply abused prosecutorial discretion, they have embraced prosecutorial nullification.

Next she blamed skyrocketing food prices on "Big Grocery."

The resolution will be forwarded to the full MESA membership in mid-to-late January 2022 for a ratification vote. If ratified, MESA would be committed to widespread discrimination against Israelis and people interested in Israeli and Jewish Studies, and would violate the academic freedom of American students and faculty.

Muslim Brotherhood members in Egypt mauled a young Christian woman, Mary, to death after they saw her cross. Also in Egypt, Ayman, 17, a Christian student, was strangled and beaten to death by his teacher and fellow students for refusing to obey the teacher's demand that he cover his cross.

South Africa has announced it will halt contact tracing and end quarantine for asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 as the dynamics of the outbreak warrant a shift towards mitigation and away from containment strategies, which are "no longer appropriate." "Containment strategies are no longer appropriate – mitigation is the only viable strategy," Buthelezi said in the document.

Many reporters, tied into the left's anti-Donald Trump crusade, did not want to ask anyway. They were afraid of the answer.

During World War I, America supplied oil to Britain, France and their allies. And during World War II, Americans rationed gas and oil at home and provided over half of the much-needed fuel for the allied war effort. But when Franklin D. Roosevelt helped the Middle East double production of cheap crude, it was the kiss of death for U.S. energy independence. As a result of cheap imports, the U.S. cut back on oil production. And by 1970, the U.S. was dependent on imported oil from politically unstable Eastern nations.

Is Biden cynical enough to blame Big Oil for a national fiasco that he concocted? Or is he so touchingly self-unaware that he misses the connection between higher pump prices and his own war on oil? In June 2007, Biden shared with CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer his plan to cut gasoline costs: "As president of the United States, use the Justice Department to go in an investigate this whole issue of price-gouging." When Biden uttered such baseless paranoia in September, The Associated Press put him in his place. "THE FACTS: There actually is little evidence something nefarious is behind the higher gasoline prices, as Biden suggests."
|If It Walks and Quacks Like a
About That Federal Vaccine Database
Jenny Beth Martin
Last week, 80 House Republicans – the vast majority of whom want their constituents to believe their congressman opposes President Biden’s vaccine mandates – nevertheless crossed party lines to vote with every Democrat for H.R. 550, a bill that would make enforcement and implementation of those vaccine mandates easier. And now, challenged by their constituents to explain their votes in support of the bill, many of them are not telling the truth about the bill and what it does.
|Fauci: Americans May 'just have to
More COVID Boosters
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said that Americans will "just have to deal with" the prospect of getting more coronavirus booster shots. Fauci made the statement on Sunday morning and said that the level of protection that the current coronavirus booster shots give to individuals will have to be monitored closely over the next several months. "If it becomes necessary to get yet another boost, then we’ll just have to deal with it when that occurs," Fauci said.
|Dem Governor Declares COVID-19
Says It’s ‘their own darn fault’ If Unvaccinated Get Sick
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, declared in a new interview that the COVID-19 emergency is "over" and that he won’t be implementing another statewide mask mandate in response to the spread of the omicron variant, explaining that if people aren’t vaccinated at this point it’s their "own darn fault" if they get sick. "Everybody had more than enough opportunity to get vaccinated," Polis told Colorado Public Radio on Friday.
|With Ivermectin in Hand, Wife Dies
While Husband Begs Hospital to Administer
David DeLuca of Sicklerville, New Jersey will never know if the Ivermectin prescribed by an out-of-state doctor for his wife would have saved her life. Colleen DeLuca, 62, died of COVID-19 on Oct. 10, at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital in Sewell, New Jersey, before he could get a court order to administer the drug. Ivermectin has helped in some cases, but across the United States, many hospitals don't include it in their COVID protocol for treatment and refuse to use it, even as a last effort on a dying patient.
|Study Can't Confirm Lab Results for
Many Cancer Experiments
Eight years ago, a team of researchers launched a project to carefully repeat early but influential lab experiments in cancer research. They recreated 50 experiments, the type of preliminary research with mice and test tubes that sets the stage for new cancer drugs. The results reported Tuesday: About half the scientific claims didn't hold up. "The truth is we fool ourselves. Most of what we claim is novel or significant is no such thing."
|FEMA Administrator Blames Climate
Deadly Tornado Outbreak
FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell laid blame on climate change for the deadly tornado outbreak over the weekend, claiming such disasters will be the "new normal" from now on. "This is going to be our new normal," Criswell said during an appearance on CNN Sunday. "The effects we are seeing of climate change are the crisis of our generation," Criswell said.
|The Real Climate and Health Crisis
Climate policies promoted and imposed by Team Biden and Democrats are based on junk science, headline-grabbing scare stories, and computer models that create far-fetched “scenarios” asserting that fossil fuel use and emissions will cause Earth to warm by 4 degrees C (7° F) over the next 80 years, and cause Arctic warming that will bring colder winters. Those dire predictions are used to justify more taxpayer-funded “research,” like a recent Columbia University “mortality cost of carbon” study that claims 83 million people (the population of Germany) “could be killed” this century by those rising planetary temperatures.
Come and See the Systemic Racism of Electric Vehicles
We have barely moved off square one in the progressive push to eliminate internal-combustion engines, and we're already hearing about the upcoming systemic racism in their proposed replacement. Here's the headline, which is almost a satire in itself of the old joke about media reporting on the end of the world: 'Without access to charging stations, Black and Hispanics communities may be left behind in the era of electric vehicles'
|Cold Snap This Winter
Could Zap New England Power Grid: ISO Boss
If a polar vortex parks itself over New England this winter for too long, start chopping wood. ISO New England CEO Gordon van Welie – a power player paid $2.3 million, according to tax filings – warned Thursday such a cold snap could knock out the grid. "People need to be prepared," he said during an ISO video briefing. "I'm not trying to cause undue alarm, but there are vulnerable supply issues."
|Pa. GOP Denounces State Environment
Board's Effort to
Join Regional Greenhouse Emissions Tax Credit Plan
Pennsylvania Republicans are denouncing the state Environmental Quality Board's effort to join a Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative without a full review by the General Assembly, a move they say will cause drastic energy price increases and job losses. Republicans in the General Assembly and Gov. Tom Wolf's administration have battled for years over the RGGI – an initiative involving 10 New England and Mid-Atlantic states that sets a cap on carbon dioxide emissions from electric power plants.

Jussie Smollett's False Hate Crime Claims
Empire actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty on five charges of staging a hate crime and lying to police on Thursday raising questions whether or not several high-profile political figures would offer apologies or attempt to clarify their public defense of his innocence. "What happened today to @JussieSmollett must never be tolerated in this country," President Joe Biden, tweeted in January of 2019 when he was mulling a presidential run, "We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie."

Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Hoax
Andrew Stiles and Matthew Foldi
The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of all the libs who immediately believed Smollett's absurd story about being recognized by two white guys in Make America Great Again hats. According to Smollett, his "attackers" had been wandering the streets of Chicago in below-freezing conditions at 2 a.m. carrying bleach and a noose with the intention of assaulting an obscure celebrity. In fact, the white guys in MAGA hats were Nigerian brothers who told police that Smollett paid them $3,500 to stage the attack.

Ban on Aborting Babies With a
Beating Heart an ‘Unconstitutional Law’
Chief Justice John Roberts said in an opinion published today – that concurred in part and dissented in part from the opinion of the court – that a Texas law that bans the abortion of unborn babies who have a detectable heartbeat is an “unconstitutional law.” He also said that the threat posed by the civil suits the law authorizes “chills constitutionally protected conduct.”

Lower Income Families,
Build Back Better Helps Wealthier Americans
Democrats have argued that the tax reforms implemented through the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) only benefited the rich, and that the Build Back Better Act (BBBA) will help middle-and working-class Americans the most. But several nonpartisan groups found that the TCJA reduced the tax burden for the middle- and working-class by up to 87% and, they argue, the $2.4 trillion BBBA – before the U.S. Senate this week – would increase taxes on the middle- and working-class by up to 40%.
|How a Never-Used Provision in the
Could Revolutionize Congress
It's no secret to anybody that our federal government is out of control, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight to massive spending and power grabs at the federal level. Or is there? A group of state legislators thinks they may have an idea, and it draws on a provision in the Constitution that has never been used. For 233 years, no state legislature has tried to invoke that provision in Article V, but that may change. A group of conservative state legislators who met at the American Legislative Exchange Council's policy conference last week is considering using Article V to develop amendments for a balanced federal budget and term limits for Congress.
|WI Hearing Emails Show Democrat
With City Election Officials; Nearly $9M in Zuckerberg Money
The Wisconsin Assembly hosted two back-to-back hearings on Dec. 8, showing aggressive coordination between Democrat operatives and city and state election officials in the months running up to the Nov. 2020 election. Voter rolls and election abuse were the expressed subjects of the hearings. However, the real story here is the evidence showing the alleged influence of Democrat groups like the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) in what has been called the Wisconsin 5 (WI5) – the five key cities in Wisconsin that helped Biden win his narrow margin of around 20,000 votes.
|Trump Was Right to Question the
Georgia Election Results
There have been many questions about the 2020 general election and the irregularities in several states. Georgia has been one of those states whose election was anything but regular. We've covered a lot of Georgia's election "issues," including paying Dominion $2,000,000 to help run the election and perform the legally required testing of their voting machines; to ordering 1,000,000 absentee ballots days before the election with no time to mail them, not to mention they never even ordered envelopes.

Combat ‘Islamophobia’ It Needs to Be Defined
A bill to create a special envoy to monitor and combat “Islamophobia” ran into Republican opposition in the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday, as critics pushed for amendments to define the phenomenon – and some were themselves accused by Democrats of Islamophobia. The bill, which enjoys the strong backing of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), would require the State Department to include specific data relating to Islamophobia in its annual human rights and international religious freedom reports.

"Many residents of Cologne are Muslims," said Mayor Henriette Reker, "and in my opinion it is a sign of respect to allow the call of the muezzin." "The call to prayer begins with 'Allahu Akbar', which is also the rallying cry of Muslims. It means that Allah is greater. Greater than the enemy, greater than the people, greater than life, greater than Germany, greater than everything. And since he is greater than everything, in the end only his law applies, the sharia", says sociologist Hamed Abdel-Samad.

Pennsylvania's public education system is broken, according to a lawyer in the historic education-funding lawsuit currently underway in the state's Commonwealth Court. Greater Johnstown School District is one of six districts suing Pennsylvania claiming the state is not meeting its constitutional obligation to provide a "thorough and efficient system of public education." The suit also claims equal protection violations due to funding disparities between school districts. Some parents, however, have a different take on the situation.

William A. Jacobson
On Wednesday, December 8, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court will heard oral arguments in a case challenging a Maine policy which provides state funds for students who do not have a local public secondary school to attend private school, but not private religious school. The funds go to the students, not directly to the schools. The case is Carson v. Makin ... Teachers Unions feared the case would open the floodgates to shifting money away from the public systems the unions milk and control to alternatives.

Pennsylvania's Supreme Court struck down a statewide school mask mandate supported by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and Acting State Health Secretary Alison Beam Friday.
