"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)

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” —Thomas Jefferson

“It is not the function of our Government to keep the citizen from falling into error.
It is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.”
—Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson
“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.”
—Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, p. 38 (1922)
“Just because you do not take an interest in politics
doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.”
—Pericles, Greek statesman, 495–429 BC

“I am certain that nothing has done so much to destroy the juridical safeguards of
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

"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and, if true, of infinite importance.
The one thing it cannot be is moderately important." — C.S. Lewis

To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil,
and in some small way to become evil oneself. —Theodore Dalrymple 


"Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward,
an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative,
by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction.
The businessman's tool is values; the bureaucrat's tool is fear."
—Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand

The Rare Republican Opportunity to Make Democrats
Own the Socialist Brand

Newt Gingrich
Every Democratic senator and representative has already voted for the outline of Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders' $3.5 trillion Big Government Socialist bill. No matter what lies they tell back home about being moderates, their names are right there on pages S6237 (Aug. 10) and H4371 (Aug. 24) of the Congressional Record. When it mattered there were no moderate Democrats. The only Democrats serving in Congress were unanimously willing to vote for Big Government Socialism.

President FUBAR
Don Surber
President Donald John Trump rung in the new year in 2020 by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran's terrorism division. Boy was Biden mad. Biden said, "Trump has no strategy here. No endgame. The only way out of this crisis is through diplomacy – clear-eyed, hard-nosed diplomacy grounded in strategy, that's not about one-off decisions or one-upmanship. We need diplomacy that is designed to de-escalate the crisis, protect our people and secure our regional interests – including our counter-ISIS campaign." Of course, there was no escalation.

Trump On Whether He Will Run for President In 2024:
'I Don't Think We're Going to Have a Choice'

Former President Trump, teasing his plans for 2024, told Fox News that the country is "getting to a point where we really have no choice" but for him to run for president again. Trump went on to bill the Biden administration's withdrawal of U.S. military assets from Afghanistan as the "greatest embarrassment in the history of our country." "When you look at Afghanistan and what happened, and the death for no reason, just for no reason," Trump said, adding that military "parents – they want to speak with me – they don't want to speak with Biden." "They're just devastated," he said.
Texas Rep. Pfluger Visits Del Rio Migrant Camp
As Numbers Spike, Warns ‘worst is yet to come’

 Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas, on Saturday spoke to Fox News as he visited the site of the migrant surge in Del Rio, Texas, saying that the number of predominantly Haitian migrants camping there in squalid conditions is approaching 15,000 – and warning the situation could get much worse. "Speaking to Border Patrol agents, the worst is yet to come, they’re worried about what is behind here, they’re worried about co-ordination with Mexico," he told Fox News from Del Rio.

Why the U.S. Should Offer to
Buy France's Submarines for Vietnam

Tom Rogan
The United States would achieve three objectives by purchasing a number of Shortfin Barracuda submarines from France and then giving them to Vietnam. First, the Biden administration would repair relations with America's oldest ally. Second, it would supply a rising security partner with newly potent means of challenging China's imperialism. Third, it would test President Emmanuel Macron's commitment to international security in the South China Sea.
What the Right Needs Now is the Courage to
 Fight Even if it Costs Us

Mollie Hemingway
We live in a time when people act like stating one's sexual preferences or whatever pronouns they're using this week is courageous. I prefer David Azerrad's definition that courage is the "Bold and principled defiance of the lies of the age." The conservative establishment, its politicians, and its media, don't lack ideas or people. But too many of its leaders do lack determination and endurance and fearlessness. The people can tell. As it is said, "Men don't follow titles, they follow courage."
NBC's Chuck Todd Says Biden Has 'a pretty big credibility crisis'
After Weekend Setbacks

NBC host Chuck Todd had some scathing criticism for President Joe Biden after a series of repeated setbacks over the weekend. Todd appeared as a guest on NBC’s "Sunday Today with Willie Geist" to discuss Biden’s repeated political failings including the failed Kabul drone strike, France’s recalling of its U.S. ambassadors, and the FDA’s rejection of booster shots for COVID-19 for people under 65. Since Biden is planning to speak to the United Nations on Tuesday, Geist questioned what people should expect from the president.
U.S. Touts New Project to Bolster Tajik-Afghan Border, as
Biden Abandons U.S. Border Wall

While the Biden administration halted construction of the border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, the United States is funding border security efforts for Tajikistan, a former Soviet republic trying to keep Afghan insurgents and refugees out... While the announcement was largely overlooked by the U.S. media, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) warned in August that it was "preposterous" for American tax dollars to be spent securing a foreign country's border while the U.S. southern border remained wide open.
As Biden Says Islam is Peaceful, D.C. Imam Calls for Jihad
Robert Spencer
No sooner has Joe Biden reminded us that Islam is a peaceful religion than a Washington, D.C.-area imam comes along to spoil the love fest. Dr. Sulayman Ali Hassan preached a sermon recently at the Shahe Najaf Islamic Center in the D.C. suburb of Alexandria, Virginia, in which he makes it clear that jihad is an obligation on all Muslims and that it has a violent component. In his sermon, he declared that "Islam has emphasized that we should all be mujahid." A mujahid is a warrior of jihad, or a jihadi.
Robin Hood In Reverse? Democrats Plan $12,500 Tax Credits for
Pricey Electric Car Purchases

House Republicans are arguing against a Democratic proposal to increase the $7,500 taxpayer-funded credit for electric car purchases to as much as $12,500, arguing that it would disproportionately help wealthy Americans who can afford to buy pricey electric vehicles. Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee have proposed increasing the credit as part of their party's filibuster-proof $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill, which includes new social programs and billions for electric vehicle infrastructure.

Genealogists Find Evidence of Biden's Ancestors Owning Slaves
Genealogists have reportedly found evidence that President Biden's paternal colonial ancestors owned slaves. The reported finding, detailed in an adapted excerpt from Politico correspondent Ben Schreckinger's upcoming book "The Bidens: Inside the First Family's Fifty-Year Rise to Power," was recently discovered by Alexander Bannerman, a genealogist in West Virginia, and lineage expert Gary Boyd Roberts.

Dems Support Florida Landowner Evicting Unvaccinated Tenants
After months of pushing to halt evictions for tenants hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic, progressives have found themselves on the side of the landlord when it comes to vaccine mandates. Occupy Democrats, a progressive activist group, raised eyebrows last week after tweeting support for landlords who are evicting unvaccinated tenants.
San Francisco Mayor Defiant After Caught Maskless In Nightclub
Despite Mandate: Don’t Need 'fun police’

San Francisco Mayor London Breed remained steadfastly defiant about her behavior Friday after she was photographed at a city jazz club dancing and singing without a mask on earlier this week despite a city mandate. "The fact that this is even a story is sad," she said. But Breed’s own city ordinance, one of the strictest in the country, requires masks indoors, vaccinated or not, unless the person is actively eating or drinking.

Steps for 'protecting the vaccinated': 'Doesn't the Vax Do That?'

Vice President Kamala Harris raised eyebrows on Sunday with her tweet urging Americans to help protect already vaccinated people in order to end the COVID-19 pandemic. "By vaccinating the unvaccinated, increasing our testing and masking, and protecting the vaccinated, we can end this pandemic. That's exactly what we are committed to doing," Harris tweeted.
FDR's Policies Prolonged Depression by 7 Years,
UCLA Economists Calculate

Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years, and they blame a suspect previously thought to be beyond reproach: President Franklin D. Roosevelt. After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years.

Rewriting the History of 9/11?
Some Schools Are Trying

Any American older than a certain age can remember 9/11 well. We can remember exactly where we were when we first heard the news of the attack, those who were there remember the sights, sounds, and smells of the attack. But now there are many Americans who have grown up without a real understanding of what happened that day. And some educators have chosen to discuss 9/11 while leaving out the Islamic connection to it.

Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., sent a letter to National Archives and Records Administration archivist David Ferriero outlining his concern about the "blanket application" of a "Harmful Language Alert" on the nation's pillar documents. "Most disturbing is use of the alert for our nation's founding documents, including the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights," Lankford wrote in the letter exclusively obtained by Fox News. "It should be removed immediately."

"I am a Caucasian cisgender female and first-generation college student from Appalachia who is of Scottish, British, and Norwegian heritage. I am married to a cisgender male, and we are middle class. While I did not 'ask' for the many privileges in my life: I have benefited from them and will continue to benefit from them whether I like it or not," reads the syllabus.
Two Far-Left Activists Convicted of Interfering with
Track Control Systems in Washington

John Sexton
Last year I wrote about two far-left activists who had been caught tampering with train tracks near Bellingham, Washington. Samantha Frances Brooks, 24, and Ellen Brennan Reiche, 28, were caught placing what is called a shunt on the tracks. They were caught red handed. Brooks pleaded guilty on July 9 of this year and Reiche, who was a former field organizer for Washington state Democrats, was tried and found guilty by a jury last week.

"Real Time" host Bill Maher closed his show Friday night by slamming "Snitch Nation," which he claims has taken America by storm.

Lies, Omissions and False Fact Checks – a Banner Week for
Media Disinformation

NY Post Editorial Board   
Last week, USA Today decided to fact check reality. Presented with a photo of President Biden checking his watch during the return of dead US service members to American soil, reporter Daniel Funke said that was "wrong." Don't believe your lying eyes. Then, calamity. Pictures revealed that Biden checked his watch at least three times. Funke was forced to fact check his fact check, which he did grudgingly as a "clarification."
Condi Rice Hits Basic Flaws In Biden Withdrawal:
Why Not Wait Until Winter? Why Telegraph 'Out' Date

Amanda Prestigiacomo
Rice, who said she disagreed with the decision to pull out troops from the region, slammed President Joe Biden for basic flaws in the withdrawal. "I think it would have been wise to hang on to Bagram [airbase] – maybe even some of our other seven airfields that we had there, so that transport of people out could have been slower, more orderly, could have taken place from more secure locations," she continued.
Vaccines Effective Against Delta Variant;
Moderna Best at 95%, J&J Least at 60%

COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing hospitalizations and emergency department visits caused by the Delta variant, according to data from a national study. That data also indicate that Moderna's vaccine is significantly more effective against Delta than Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. "These real-world data show that vaccines remain highly effective at reducing COVID-19 related hospitalizations and emergency department visits, even in the presence of the new COVID-19 variant," said study author:
CDC Changes Definition of Vaccine So It Can't Be
'Interpreted to Mean That Vaccines are 100% Effective'

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently revised its definition for vaccine and vaccination on one of its web pages, saying that the new definition is "more transparent" and can't be misinterpreted. "While there have been slight changes in wording over time to the definition of 'vaccine' on CDC's website, those haven't impacted the overall definition," a CDC spokesperson told The Epoch Times via email.

Biden Droned the Wrong Guy,
Innocent Aid Worker Killed in Kabul Strike: NYT

A U.S. airstrike in Kabul against a supposed Islamic State bomber actually killed an innocent man who worked for a U.S. aid group and his family, according to newly published testimony and footage – raising the specter that the Pentagon lied to the public about the strike. The reported case of mistaken identity also further tars President Biden for his chaotic pullout of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, which left behind hundreds of U.S. citizens and thousands of at-risk Afghans.
Breaking from 'Presidential Norms', Biden Demands of
Trump's Military Board Appointees Resign or Be Dismissed

The Biden administration has asked 12 officials appointed to military service academy advisory boards by former President Donald Trump to resign or be dismissed. The officials asked to resign include prominent former Trump officials like former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, former senior counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and former national security adviser H.R. McMaster. "It certainly seems petty and political, if not personal", said Kellyanne Conway.

Gordon G. Chang
If Washington is going to deter a militant China, it needs the support of democratic India. Unfortunately, India looks like the country most immediately – and perhaps most adversely – affected by the Biden-created debacle. As a result, New Delhi could decide to side not with America but with a Chinese ally, Moscow. New Delhi was one of the staunchest supporters of the American-backed Afghan government and was working alongside Washington in the war against the Taliban and other insurgents.

'taking the bait' on False Story About Ivermectin Overdoses

A number of mainstream media figures and outlets appear to have been fooled by a false story that some Oklahoma hospitals were overwhelmed with patients having overdosed on the drug ivermectin, a parasite-fighting medication that can also be sold over the counter as a veterinary drug. The story, which was originally reported at Oklahoma's KFOR-TV news, quoted testimony from Dr. Jason McElyea claiming that hospitals in a rural part of Oklahoma were being overrun with patients overdosing on the drug, causing gunshot victims to having to wait to be treated.
Snark and Lies Are Not a Plan
Robert Shibley
Who doesn't want misleading Twitter snark from their supposedly serious government agencies?

Experts Offer 'weak' Support for Marijuana to Treat Chronic Pain
Non-inhaled medical marijuana and its derivatives offer few benefits in treating chronic pain, leading a panel of experts to offer a "weak" recommendation for its use for the condition in an article published Wednesday by BMJ.

Old Joe Biden's handlers are in the process of bringing 94,000 Afghan refugees into the UnitedStates, and really, only a racist ... could possibly object to such a grand humanitarian gesture, right? Yet a migrant couple in Pennsylvania illustrated there is ample reason to temper our enthusiasm over Old Joe's welcome mat: Shahidul Gaffar, a naturalized citizen, and his wife, Nabila Khan, a legal permanent resident, both from Bangladesh, were sentenced to federal prison for sending nearly $5,600 to Khan's brothers, who happen to be Islamic State (ISIS) jihadis.

Rep.

Fire the Military and Intelligence Bigs
Who Bungled Afghanistan – Now

Glenn H. Reynolds
To begin with, Milley must resign or be fired. And the same for our triple-masking defense secretary, Lloyd Austin. This was a failure that happened on their watch, and it happened through bad management. They may feel that firing is unfair, but they'd be getting off light by the standards of military history: In the 18th century, the British executed an admiral, John Byng, for failing to "do his utmost" in combat. It was harsh, but the Royal Navy became more aggressive.
Cui Bono? Who Benefits from the Afghanistan Withdrawal?
Dennis Prager
How does a leader decide what to do? The most logical response is: "Cui bono?" – "Who benefits?" – from the decision. If some policy benefits your country most, you should, within moral bounds, pursue it. If your enemies benefit most, you should avoid it. I'd be curious to learn what answer proponents of America leaving Afghanistan – conservative or liberal – would give to the question, "Cui bono?"
State Dept Blocking Private Rescue Flights from Leaving Afghanistan, Organizers Say: 'Blood Is On Their Hands'
FIRST ON FOX: Americans engaged in the rescue of U.S. citizens, SIVs and green card holders left behind by President Biden in Afghanistan are horrified by what they describe as inexplicable delays from the State Department that are preventing evacuation flights from leaving the country. The State Department's delays are recklessly endangering American lives, three different individuals involved in the private evacuation effort told Fox News. Rick Clay, who runs the private rescue group PlanB, told Fox News that the State Department is the only thing preventing the flights he's organizing from leaving Afghanistan.

Grenell on Afghan Withdrawal, 'lies':
'Washington DC's Politics Has Literally Killed Americans'

Former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell claimed Thursday the self-preservationist politics of the federal bureaucracy is directly at fault for the deaths of Americans. "I am not surprised that Washington, D.C. is lying to us again. Unfortunately, Tammy, we have a situation where Washington, D.C.'s politics has literally killed Americans. And while this can go on in Washington and those in Washington can paper it over and try to spin that they got 90% of Americans out of Afghanistan. The rest of us outside of Washington are saying 'we have never seen a situation where Washington, D.C. politicians are proud of 90%'," he said.
State Department Decision to Abolish Crisis Response Bureau
'Mucked Up' Afghanistan Exit, Report Says

The State Department's decision to abolish a crisis response bureau, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon, "mucked up America's exit from Afghanistan" and prompted the resignation of the department's top physician, according to a new report in Vanity Fair. The Free Beacon reported earlier this month that the State Department moved in June to dissolve the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau, a Trump-era project that was meant to coordinate the evacuation of Americans from hotspots overseas.

The economy added 235,000 jobs in August, far below economists' predictions of 720,000 and a sharp drop in job growth from the previous two months when the economy added 962,000 jobs in June and another 1.1 million in July, according to Department of Labor data released Friday.
Why I Won't Support Spending Another $3.5 Trillion
Joe Manchin
The nation faces an unprecedented array of challenges and will inevitably encounter additional crises in the future. Yet some in Congress have a strange belief there is an infinite supply of money to deal with any current or future crisis, and that spending trillions upon trillions will have no negative consequence for the future. I disagree.

Rick Moran
The face of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is almost certainly haunting Joe Biden's dreams these days. Manchin has become the Democrats' ghost in the machine, disrupting and destroying their plans to spend America into penury and transform society into something strangely alien to most Americans' idea of freedom.
NY Times Changes Biden Headline That Claimed

Much of the substance of the article focused on the Gold Star families who met with Biden at Dover Air Force Base, some blaming him for the deadly bombing that occurred during the U.S.'s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, others saying he appeared "distant" or focused more on Beau's 2015 death from brain cancer than their loved one's loss in the attack.
Biden's Shameless Exploitation of His Dead Son
As bad as you think Joe Biden may be, he's even worse.

Daniel Greenfield
After getting 13 American military personnel killed in Kabul, Biden met with family members and, instead of listening to their pain and apologizing for his actions, lectured them about his son. Former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, the scion of the family who took up the family business, figured large in his father's speeches defending his disastrous retreat in Afghanistan. It was the same stump speech that Biden had been giving about his dead son for six years which he dusted off to explain why he was abandoning Americans in the hands of terrorists.
Trump on Biden's Botched Afghanistan Withdrawal: America Has Been 'humiliated' – Biden Owes America, the World An Apology
Former President Trump slammed President Biden's botched U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, telling "Varney & Co." during an exclusive interview on Tuesday that America has been "humiliated." He argued that "the single worst decision ever made in our country's history" is for the U.S. "to go to the Middle East." Trump said that the Biden administration cannot do "a simple withdrawal from a country that we should have never gotten into in the first place."

A COVID Testing Facility In Colorado
Reveals the Con Behind the Panic

Andrea Widburg
Candace Owens needed a COVID test, so she contacted a rapid response testing facility in Aspen, Colorado to make an appointment. Instead of an appointment, she got a letter telling her there was no way that this business would ever test Owens because Owens is an anti-vaxxer. Instead, said the owner, Owens could go to the slow, back-alley testing facility. Owens publicized the exchange because it gives away the fact that this whole COVID panic in 2021 is a scam.
CNN Panel Blasts Biden Admin's Inability to
Communicate Clearly On COVID: 'People feel jerked around'

A CNN panel blasted the Biden administration on Sunday for getting ahead of the science on booster shots, noting Americans are getting "frustrated" by the haphazardness at the White House. President Biden proclaimed booster shots would be available to the public by September 20, yet the Food and Drug Administration appeared to be caught off guard by that goal. They told the White House, regulators need more time to review necessary data before setting a date.

Tree of Life Synagogue
Disputes Biden's Claim He Visited After Massacre

President Biden on Thursday told Jewish leaders that he spent time at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the October 2018 mass murder of 11 people there -- but the synagogue told The Post he never visited. "I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them," Biden said in a 16-minute virtual address ahead of the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Biden Administration to Resume Drilling Auctions in
Setback to Climate Agenda

The Biden administration announced plans on Tuesday to open millions of acres for oil and gas exploration as the White House sought to comply with a court order requiring it to resume lease auctions. The move... represents a setback for Democratic President Joe Biden's plans to fight climate change, which included a campaign vow to end new federal oil and gas leasing.
Biden Loses 4,890 Migrant Children, and the Left Yawns
I & I Editorial Board
Last week, Axios reported that the Department of Health and Human Services has lost contact with more than 4,500 children who’d crossed the border illegally after it had released them into the country. That’s a third of the migrant children it was supposed to be tracking. Axios, a small news organization started just four years ago, uncovered this new wrinkle in the Biden-created border crisis by submitting a Freedom of Information Act request. The reaction from the mainstream press, leftists, celebrities, and the twitterati? Crickets.
Border Patrol Scrambles to Fill Gap In Wall Left by Biden
When President Biden took office in January, his administration ordered an immediate halt on the construction of a 30-foot high border fence, leaving a gaping hole at one of the most vulnerable stretches of the U.S.-Mexican border. The 20-foot gap in the frontier wall at Border Monument Three – one of the 276 original markers erected after the Mexican-American War in 1848 – was allowing thousands of smugglers and migrants to cross into the U.S. with relative ease, Border Patrol agents told The Post last week.
400-Strong Migrant Caravan from Mexico
Headed for U.S. Border

A 400-strong caravan of immigrants is making its way through Mexico toward the U.S., even as Mexican National Guard troops continue trying to thwart border-bound migrants. The massive group, which left from the southern city of Tapachula on Saturday, began its northward trek after Mexican forces broke up at least two other caravans in the past week.
Biden Calls Black Adviser 'boy' During FEMA Briefing
President Biden called a Black adviser "boy" during a Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) briefing on Monday. The president used the term while introducing his senior adviser Cedric Richmond, a former Louisiana congressman. "I'm here with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond," Biden said at a press briefing with FEMA after Hurricane Ida rocked Louisiana.

Critical Race Theory In Universities
Likely Violates Federal Law: Legal Analysis

Representative Mark Lowery had asked AG Leslie Rutledge: "Does the introduction of practices based on "antiracism" and critical race theory in Arkansas public schools and universities violate Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, Article II of the Arkansas Constitution, or other applicable nondiscrimination laws?" Rutledge concluded that yes, it does.
Colorado Teachers Sign Pledge to Teach Critical Race Theory
Even If Banned in Classroom

A project in the name of the late, self-proclaimed socialist college professor Howard Zinn has gathered thousands of signatures of teachers nationwide, including about 100 from Colorado, pledging to teach the tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in their classrooms despite any bans by any state government or a local school district. CRT is a school of thought that believes racism is institutionalized and embedded in America's history, and that history should be viewed primarily through the lens of racial oppression.

In an interview performance that has been described as “unhinged,” “odd,” “testy,” and “angry,” Gov. Gavin Newsom claimed Texas ??middle-class families “pay more taxes than middle-class families in California.” “Look that up,” he said in a virtual meeting with editorial and opinion writers from the McClatchy chain’s California newspapers. “That’s a fact”
Jonathan Turley: Statements By Capitol Police Officer Who Killed
Ashli Babbitt 'Demolish the Official Reviews That Cleared Him'

Stacey Matthews
Numerous aspects of what unfolded during the Capitol riot have been hotly debated in the months since it happened, but few have been as contentious and emotional as the debate over the officer-involved shooting death of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt. The 35-year-old Air Force veteran was shot and killed by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 6th after she tried to climb through a glass-paneled door after parts of it had been shattered by another rioter, identified as Zachary Jordan Alam. Babbitt, who reportedly had been standing next to Alam, was shot.
Global Warming Narrative Takes Another Hit
I & I Editorial Board
We have been constantly told for what seems like as long as we can remember that Antarctica is shrinking because man’s carbon dioxide emissions are overheating our planet. While fearmongering has made its way around the world countless times, the truth is still pulling on its boots. So what is the truth? It’s quite straightforward: Antarctic sea ice has been growing.
Christian University Commissions pro-LGBTQ,
pro-Democratic Murals for Dormitory

Emory University, a Methodist institution in Atlanta, recently allowed a local artist and alumnus to paint murals promoting Democratic politicians and gay pride in one of its residence halls. One of the murals reads "We're here! We're queer! Get used to it!" and features a mutli-racial crowd protesting at what appears to be a gay pride event. Also visible are a peace symbol and a sign that reads "the kiss". Colors representing transgenderism, bisexuality, gays, lesbians, and people of color are used in painting.

Mollie Tibbetts' Killer Sentenced to Life In Prison
The man convicted in the 2018 death of Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student, was sentenced to life in prison Monday, three years after she disappeared while on an evening run. Judge Joel Yates sentenced Cristhian Bahena Rivera to life without the possibility of parole, the mandatory sentence for first-degree murder in Iowa, which does not have the death penalty. The 27-year-old former farmhand, who testified that he came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico as a teenager, has been jailed since his arrest in August 2018.
Florida Evil: Self-Described 'survivalist' on Meth
Shoots and Kills 4, Including Baby Clinging to Mother

"It was an evil, evil, evil act by a very well-trained military person who knew better and still did it," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told Fox News of a former Marine and self-described "survivalist" who allegedly went on a shooting rampage in central Florida early Sunday morning, killing four members of a family and wounding an 11-year-old girl. The alleged shooter, 33-year-old Bryan Riley, told police that he had been taking methamphetamine, Judd said. He barricaded himself in the victims' home and got into a shootout with police before eventually surrendering.

Does America Still Work?
Victor Davis Hanson
For nearly two years, Americans have engaged in a great woke experiment of cannibalizing themselves. American civilization has invested massive labor, capital, and time in an effort to constantly flagellate itself for not being perfect. Yet America's resilience and its resources are not infinite. We are now beginning to see the consequences of what happens when premodern tribalism absorbs Americans.
Frightening Incompetence
In the Midst of a White House Breakdown

Michael Goodwin
What if the Biden team is every bit as bad as it looks? Having been in office eight months, its successes are so minimal and its mistakes so glaring that doubts exist across the political spectrum about whether the president is up to the job. The doubts recall warnings about Biden from two people who know him best.
Obama Defense Sec Says Biden Sunk to New Low,

Former Democratic Rep. Leon Panetta of California, who served as CIA director and Secretary of Defense under former President Barack Obama, made his comments during an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, in which they focused on the response to the terrorist attack on Thursday that left 13 American troops dead and more than 300 Afghan civilians killed or wounded.

Biden Turns Afghanistan Into A Slaughterhouse,
Taliban Into A Military Superpower

I & I Editorial Board
A day after at least 13 U.S. soldiers were killed at the Kabul airport, it's still unclear how many Americans will be abandoned in Afghanistan by the Biden administration. What we do know, though, is that most of the U.S. weaponry in the country will not be recovered. It's as if Joe Biden himself was the military procurement chief for the Taliban.
Taliban Kill Squad Hunting Down Afghans –
Using U.S. Biometric Data

The Taliban has mobilized a special unit, called Al Isha, to hunt down Afghans who helped U.S. and allied forces – and it's using U.S. equipment and data to do it. Nawazuddin Haqqani, one of the brigade commanders over the Al Isha unit, bragged in an interview with Zenger News that his unit is using US-made hand-held scanners to tap into a massive U.S.-built biometric database and positively identify any person who helped the NATO allies or worked with Indian intelligence. Afghans who try to deny or minimize their role will find themselves contradicted by the detailed computer records that the U.S. left behind in its frenzied withdrawal.
Taliban Rule Will Be 'a long slow death' for Women,
Lara Logan Says

After 20 years, the Taliban has once again taken Afghanistan. In numerous interviews Fox News has conducted since the extremist group seized Kabul, a central theme emerged: women will almost certainly face unforgiving brutality despite the Taliban's promises. Two female journalists independently told Fox News they were barred from their newsrooms and hid out of fear that the Taliban would kill them. One told her story over the sound of gunfire, and the other changes her location every day to avoid getting caught.
Taliban Going Door to Door Seeking Christians,
Searching Through Phones for Bible Apps

The Taliban has a hit list of known Christians they are targeting to pursue and kill. The U.S. Embassy is defunct and there is no longer a safe place for believers to take refuge. All borders to neighboring countries are closed and all flights to and from have been halted, with the exception of private planes. People are fleeing into the mountains looking for asylum. They are fully reliant on God, who is the only One who can and will protect them.
Taliban Demand Afghans Hand Over

A spokesman for the Taliban said that Afghans who have government-issued weapons, ammunition, or vehicles need to hand them over or face punishment. "All those who have government goods, equipment, weapons, ammunition, or vehicles need to hand them over to the relevant department," said Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid on Twitter, according to translation. The weapons need to be given to the Taliban within a week.

"I’m not gonna answer on Afghanistan now," Biden interjected before walking away from the podium.
Supreme Court Requires Biden to
Revive Trump's 'remain in Mexico' Immigration Policy

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday denied President Joe Biden's bid to rescind an immigration policy implemented by his predecessor, Donald Trump, that forced thousands of asylum seekers to stay in Mexico awaiting U.S. hearings. The court, with three liberal justices dissenting, rejected the Biden administration's effort to block a Texas-based judge's ruling requiring the government to revive Trump's "remain in Mexico" policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols program.
Sec. of State Blinken Was Vacationing In the Hamptons
Hours Before Kabul Fell

According to a detailed timeline of the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul compiled by the Washington Post, the actions by U.S. officials in the days leading up to the collapse suggested "no immediate cause for alarm," with many of them "surrendering to the customary rhythms of Washington in August." Blinken, like other U.S. officials, had to be called back from his vacation once things started rapidly deteriorating in Afghanistan, the report said.

Members of the Jamaican Coalition for a Healthy Society protested outside the U.S. Embassy in Jamaica this month against the flying of an LGBT Pride flag, denouncing the action as an "insult to our country."

What If That Burning Car Has a Lithium-Ion Battery?
National Transportation Safety Board
The high-voltage battery in an electric vehicle can catch fire as the result of a crash or because of an internal battery failure. If it does, firefighters, tow operators, and other emergency responders risk electric shock from exposure to the battery’s high-voltage components. A further risk is that damaged battery cells can experience thermal runaway – uncontrolled increases in temperature and pressure – that can cause a battery to ignite and to reignite, sometimes more than once.
Republicans Demand IRS Explain Why

Plastic shields may increase the risk of coronavirus infection by interrupting air flow. He cites a large-scale study of COVID transmission in U.S. schools released in May by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The FDA Did NOT Grant Full Approval to the Pfizer Shots

You may have heard that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 shot received FDA approval this past Monday. Politicians, national health officials, and journalists are breathless with excitement about how this approval will finally induce the remaining "vaccine-hesitant" into stepping forward to receive their jab. The FDA even has a press release on its website about it. There's just one problem.

Major Law Firm Confirms FDA Deceived America
With Its Confusing 'approval' of Pfizer Vax

Leo Hohmann
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Aug. 23 it had granted full approval to the first Covid "vaccine" under the brand name Comirnaty, the mainstream media immediately ran with the narrative. Joe Biden jumped in front of a microphone and told businesses they needed to "step up" the mandating of vaccines for their employees. There's only one problem. The "approval" given by the FDA was not for the Pfizer jab currently available in the U.S. market.

Jennifer Griffin: Biden's Remarks on Afghan Situation
'couldn't be fact-checked fast enough'

Fox News chief national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin said President Joe Biden's remarks on Afghanistan Friday "couldn't be fact-checked fast enough in real-time," telling "America Reports" the president, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the rest of the administration were presenting an "alternate reality." Griffin and "America Reports" host Sandra Smith noted that Biden claimed there has been "no question of [US] credibility from allies around the world." However, in reality, America's closest friends are harshly criticizing the hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan ordered by the president.

Defense Secretary Austin Contradicts Biden,
says Americans Beaten By Taliban Trying to Reach Airport

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin contradicted President Biden on Friday, telling House lawmakers on a phone call that multiple Americans trying to reach the Kabul airport have been beaten by Taliban fighters, two lawmakers told Fox News. Austin called the beatings "unacceptable," a person on the phone call told Fox News. Austin's remarks starkly contrasted with what Biden told reporters after his speech on Friday. When asked about reports that some Americans were being blocked from reaching Hamid Karzai International Airport for evacuation, Biden denied that any Americans were having such trouble.

Pentagon Admits al Qaeda Has a 'presence' in Afghanistan

As In the Obama Era, the British Media Are More Objective

Biden was always unfit to be president but his Left-wing media cheerleaders didn't dare admit it. The world appears to have woken up to an important truth this week: which is that Joe Biden is a truly terrible president. It is a shame that it took America gifting Afghanistan back to the Taliban for so many people to realise this.

Biden Admin Moved to Dismantle Protections for
Citizens Trapped Overseas Months Before Kabul's Fall

The Biden administration moved in June to dismantle a system designed to protect American citizens trapped abroad – just months before the Taliban took over Afghanistan, stranding thousands of Americans in the Central Asian country. Fox News has obtained the June 11 memo sent around the State Department which gave the green light on the "discontinuation of the establishment, and the termination of, the Contingency and Crisis Response Bureau (CCR)."

Flashback: Chuck Schumer Praised Joe Biden's
'Careful and Thought-Out Plan' for Afghanistan Withdrawal

Last November, Chuck Schumer blasted Trump's plans to reduce troops in Afghanistan, but back in April, he felt so confident that Joe Biden had set a good plan in motion for withdrawal that he praised it as "careful and thought-out," compared to Trump's plan. "You were critical last year of President Trump's decision to reduce the troop levels in Afghanistan because you said it was an incoherent policy," CNN's John Berman pointed out to the Senate majority leader. "How do you feel now about President Biden's decision?" "I think President Biden has come up with a careful and thought-out plan," Schumer replied.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who joined America in the invasion of Afghanistan after the 2001 terror attacks, is blasting President Joe Biden's bungled exit from the country as "imbecilic" and a boon to both jihadist and Western enemies across the world. The ex-Labour Party leader said the American withdrawal plan had been conducted "in a manner that seems almost designed to parade our humiliation" and "the question posed by allies and enemies alike is: has the West lost its strategic will?"

How Did the Taliban Know
That the Joe Biden Afghan Surrender Was Coming?

Judi McLeod
They knew. The Taliban knew that the newly-elected Joe Biden regime would pull out all the stops in Afghanistan leaving the entire country and anyone left there at their heartless mercy. How is it possible that the Taliban knew about the human catastrophe before the 10,000 to 45,000 Americans in Afghanistan knew?
They Seem to Want Joe to Go
Don Surber
Maybe the swamp rats in Washington do not see Afghanistan as an existential threat to Biden. After all, they misjudged the speed in which the Taliban would move to fill the vacuum created by Biden's sudden withdrawal of U.S. forces. Why would they not misjudge the gravity of the situation now? Still it does seem strange that few pundits or politicians are publicly defending him.
In 8 Months, Biden Destroyed His Reputation,

If Biden Were a Republican,
Dems in Congress Would Have Impeached Him. They Should

Victor Davis Hanson
Biden claims he was bound by Trump’s decision to withdraw and thus cannot be blamed for his reckless operation of a predetermined departure. But all Biden has done since entering office is destroy Trump pacts, overturning past agreements on energy leases, protocols with Latin America and Mexico on border security, and pipeline contracts. No sooner did Biden claim he was straitjacketed by Trump than he reversed course to defend not just his own withdrawal but the disastrous manner of it. Biden claims that he has no free will while insisting he would have done nothing differently if he did.
Top Biden Ambassador Picks

President Joe Biden's picks for two high-profile ambassadorships served on the board of a nonprofit group tied to Chinese propaganda organizations and several Chinese state-owned companies. Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of former president John F. Kennedy and Biden's nominee for ambassador to Australia, served until October 2020 on the board of the Asia Society, which bills itself as the "leading force" for forging closer ties between Asia and the West. Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti (D.), whom Biden tapped for ambassador to India, is on the board of directors of the Asia Society's affiliate in southern California.

On one side is a map that details transport routes from Panama to the United States. It was published by the Red Cross and is titled "Messages of Self-Help for Migrants." The pamphlet crosses a line beyond providing life-saving information to facilitating illegal immigration, according to Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies.

He's a forgotten man hung out to dry like Sunday's laundry.
Texas Gov. Abbott Tests Negative for COVID-19
Four Days After Positive Test

"I am told that my infection was brief and mild because of the vaccination I received," Abbott said in a video he posted on Twitter. "So, I encourage others who have not yet received the vaccination to consider getting one." Upon testing positive for the coronavirus, Abbott was given Regeneron's monoclonal antibody treatment – a therapy used for "mild to moderate" coronavirus cases for people who "are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19."
Vaccinated People Are Shrugging Off COVID-19,
Which Should Be Good News – But Good News Doesn't Sell

Jim Treacher
Remember when everybody freaked out about Lindsey Graham getting COVID-19? It was just two weeks ago. The libs were all high-fiving each other, cheering for him to die. It just reaffirmed their belief that those dirty Republicans deserve illness and death, and they're all anti-vaxxers, and other such nonsense. But Graham didn't die, because he's vaccinated.
Boebert Bill a Move Towards Meaningful Forest Management
Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, with 16 cosponsors, has introduced the "Active Forest Management, Wildfire Prevention, and Community Protection Act." Were the bill to pass, it would significantly improve the health of national forests by removing beetle-killed trees, thinning and restoring forests on a landscape-scale, and streamlining the bureaucratic paralysis and unending litigation that for decades have hampered virtually any large-scale solution.
776 Unites Member Blasts Critical Race Theory but
Warns About 1619 Project Too

Critical race theory has become a hot topic at school board meetings around the country – but similar race-based programs, including the New York Times’ 1619 Project and some equity lessons, are also drawing criticism, even as they’ve received a warmer reception in classrooms. Progressive proponents of the programs view them as a means of addressing what they believe is pervasive and systemic racism in the United States and its institutions. But some civil rights activists and educational leaders are pushing back in favor of programs that teach about the founding promise of the United States, rather than victimhood and "racial grievance."
Black Father Tells Board CRT Keeps Racism On
'life support', Moments Later They Vote to Ban It

A father in Colorado Springs who is the descendant of slaves slammed critical race theory during a public school district's board meeting, saying racism in America would "by and large be dead" if not for institutions such as the education system "keeping it on life support." "I am a direct descendant of the North American slave trade. Both my parents are black. All four of my grandparents are black, all eight of my great great grandparents, and all 16 of my great greats. On my mother's side, my ancestors were enslaved in Alabama. On my father's side, we were enslaved in Texas," father Derrick Wilburn said during a board meeting last week. "I am not oppressed. I'm not oppressed and I'm not a victim."
Turning Point USA Launches School Board WatchList
School boards across the country hold a massive sway over the education of our children and the future of our country. For too long, they have operated silently under the radar, with no organization holding them accountable for their actions. Turning Point USA’s latest initiative, the School Board Watchlist, works tirelessly to fight the corruption and blatant indoctrination of our children occurring in our K-12 public education system.
Multiple Amicus Briefs Support College’s Challenge of
Biden Administration’s Order to Have Unisex Living Quarters

“To have any amicus briefs signals the public importance of the case and that the issues in the case affect much more than just the party in front of it,” Blake said. “We are pleased and proud to have so many supporters for the college in our case. Having a 14-state amicus brief is the exception, it is not the rule and we are honored to have so many state governments stand by the college in this case,” Blake continued.
This case has important nationwide implications
Indiana AG Investigates
University's Ties to Chinese Communist Party

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced that his office will investigate the Chinese Communist Party's Confucius Institute at Valparaiso University. "The investigation is aimed at identifying and getting to the bottom of the true intent of any relationships between Valparaiso University's programming and the Chinese Communist Party," a statement from Rokita's office reads.
The Population Confusion – 'White' America is Hardy in Decline
Regardless of Media Assertions

Clyde Prestowitz
Over the past few weeks, the American public has been told by all the leading news outlets and commentators that white America is on its death bed as the country moves to a rainbow future led by an explosion of growth among Hispanics and Latinos. While this is in line with the presently popular narratives of the coming demise of America’s white oppressors, it is not at all in keeping with the facts.
Hoax: Fired TN Vaccine Chief Reportedly
Sent "Threatening" Muzzle to Herself

Tennessee's now-former vaccine chief Michelle Fiscus claims she ran afoul of Republican state officials by urging teens as young as 14 to get vaccinated without parental consent. In the brouhaha leading up to her eventual firing for "poor interpersonal communication skills, ineffective management and attempting to steer state money to a nonprofit she founded," Fiscus claimed to have received a dog muzzle from Amazon.

Harvard Email About Student Being Terminated is a Hoax
Claim: Harvard College sent an email that revoked an admitted student's acceptance due to the student's social media posts.
The Facts: The bogus email, which was addressed to "student," regarding their "admission status," states: "It is with a heavy heart we inform you that you are being terminated from Harvard. This comes as a result of speculating your social media accounts and we believe that you do not transmit a good representation of the school."
If it's sensational, it's probably a hoax.
Shoot a Hog, Save the Planet
Celebrating National Shooting Sports Month doesn’t have to be just a range activity. Hunters can get into the game too and while they’re at it, lend a helping hand to conservation and fight climate change. Feral hogs have long been known to be a scourge on wildlife. They are a non-native species introduced into North America as a food source. Feral hogs are environmental assassins. They’re responsible for $1.5 billion worth of crop damage annually, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Week ending 15 August 2021

Obama Warned America,
‘Don’t Underestimate Joe’s Ability to Screw Things Up.’

Jeff Dunetz
Searing, anonymously sourced quotes from Obama kept appearing through the race. One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warned, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to 'f...' things up.” Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.” Obama is rarely correct, but that statement was a true prediction of Joe Biden’s first seven months in the Oval Office. Since inauguration Day on January 20, everything Joe Biden has touched has turned to manure.
All Biden Had to Do Was…Nothing
John Podhoretz
All Joe Biden had to do was nothing. Had Joe Biden done nothing, Afghanistan would not have fallen to the Taliban today. Had he just let the status quo continue, the status quo would have continued... In so acting, Biden has cast the future of American foreign policy into the worst state of disrepair since the last helicopter-carries-people-to-the-airport-to-flee-the-country scene 46 years ago.
President Biden, VP Harris Avoid the Cameras
As Kabul Falls to Taliban

Although Biden did release a written statement on Afghanistan on Saturday, he did not go on camera to reassure the American people as news broke that officials were destroying documents in the U.S. Embassy in Kabul and even taking the American flag down from the site. He has yet to speak directly to the American people on camera directly after Afghanistan's president, Ashraf Ghani, fled the country and after the Taliban stormed the presidential palace in Kabul, with "with "exclusive" access granted to the terrorist-linked Al Jazeera network.
Biden will have blood on his hands
World Leaders Blame Biden,
 Express Disappointment with Afghanistan

World leaders are speaking out about their disappointment with the security situation in Afghanistan, with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson going so far as to pin the blame on President Joe Biden and the United States. Johnson said it was "fair to say the US decision to pull out has accelerated things, but this has in many ways been a chronicle of an event foretold," but urged western leaders to work together to prevent Afghanistan from again becoming a "breeding ground for terrorism."
President Biden Will Own the Fall of Kabul –
When the Real Killing Begins

Kenneth R. Timmerman
For decades, Joe Biden has touted himself as a foreign policy genius. As a United States senator, he never had to make a decision or bear responsibility for running off at the mouth. As vice-president, he was given backwaters such as Ukraine that he reportedly turned into a family piggy bank. But now he is president. He owns the utter disaster that Afghanistan has become... Biden owns this, personally. And every Gold Star family should remind him of that fact.
Afghanistan and the Cost of Having a ‘Normal’ President
Roger Kimball
Consider this a letter of congratulations. I address it to Democrats everywhere who told us that Joe Biden would return the United States to a state of normality. I address it also to those, many putative Republicans as well as Democrats, who fought tooth-and-nail against Donald Trump because – well, because he was not a “normal” politician.
Biden Proven Wrong Again, as
Helicopters Land on U.S. Embassy Roof

Nick Arama
We’re seeing a tragedy happening in Afghanistan because of Joe Biden’s precipitous withdrawal without apparently any real preparation with the Afghan government or understanding the movement of the Taliban. Now that the Taliban are moving into Kabul, we likely will not be able to save thousands of our allies who are now behind enemy lines. Hopefully, we’re able to get our own people out in time – even that may be a question now.
Uncaring,
Criminal
Harris Says She Had Key Role in
Biden's Afghanistan Withdrawal Decision

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Harris was asked about being the last person in the room regarding major decisions, something that Biden has said is important to him in his working relationship with the vice president. Harris confirmed that was the case regarding the move to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan by Sept. 11.
Afghan President Flees Country As Taliban Move Into Kabul
Afghanistan’s embattled president left the country Sunday, joining thousands of his fellow citizens and foreigners in a stampede fleeing the advancing Taliban and signaling the end of a 20-year Western experiment aimed at remaking the country. The Taliban fanned out across the capital, and an official with the militant group said it would soon announce the creation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from the presidential palace in Kabul.
Biden Never Saw What Hit Him
Richard Fernandez
The most tragic thing about Joe Biden’s cascade of failures is what it reveals about the man and his leadership team as a whole. He never had the capability to anticipate the problems that now overwhelm him and still less appears to possess the capacity to improvise a solution. Reality, so long kept at bay by the media narrative, is now inside his OODA loop and pulling ahead. Things got to this pass-through hubris; the conceit that America’s design margin was so great that incompetence and corruption and stupidity didn’t matter only to learn what the Greeks knew: after hubris inevitably comes nemesis.
Moderate House Dems Threaten to Derail
Pelosi’s $3.5 Trillion Budget Plan

A crew of moderate House Democrats said it will withhold support for Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D., Calif.) massive budget resolution, setting the stage for a standoff between the caucus's moderate and progressive wings. The nine Democrats, led by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (N.J.), sent a letter on Thursday to Pelosi saying they won't vote on the speaker's $3.5 trillion budget resolution until Congress passes the smaller bipartisan infrastructure bill that the Senate approved this week.
Levin: Biden Operating 'the most diabolical presidency and
Democratic Party probably since slavery'

Hosting guests Stephen Moore and Stephen Miller, Levin called the sudden "Marxist" lurch of the federal government a "massive de-growth movement dress[ed] up as climate change and the Green New Deal." He added that congressional Democrats with Biden's blessing seek to permanently transform America from a capitalist model to one that is far to the left by ushering in "American Marxism" through massive legislative bills disguised as "infrastructure" and "voting rights."
Dems Should Keep Their Grubby Paws Off
Americans' Retirement Savings

NY Post Editorial Board
Democrats on Capitol Hill are proving their socialist stripes: They've reportedly considered raiding the "super-sized retirement savings accounts" of the wealthy to pay for their $3.5 trillion progressive spending fiasco. On Tuesday, Politico reported that congressional Democrats are "aghast that hundreds of Americans have IRAs worth more than $25 million, and nearly 30,000 have accounts with balances topping $5 million."
Do Masks Work? A Review of the Evidence
Jeffrey Anderson
“Seriously people -- STOP BUYING MASKS!” So tweeted then–surgeon general Jerome Adams on February 29, 2020, adding, “They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus.” Two days later, Adams said, “Folks who don’t know how to wear them properly tend to touch their faces a lot and actually can increase the spread of coronavirus.” Less than a week earlier, on February 25, public-health authorities in the United Kingdom had published guidance that masks were unnecessary even for those providing community or residential care:
Confirmed: Obama’s Martha’s Vineyard Birthday Bash a
Super Spreader Event

Andrew Stiles
Former president Barack Obama shrugged off the concerns of scientific experts by throwing himself a massive 60th birthday party at his $17.5 million estate on Martha's Vineyard this past weekend. As usual, the scientific experts were correct: The star-studded affair was a confirmed "super spreader" event, putting countless lives at risk and further cementing Obama's reputation as a narcissistic war criminal.
GOP Demands Biden Administration Act After
Mayorkas Calls Border Crisis 'unsustainable'

Top Republicans on Friday called on the Biden administration to act on the crisis at the southern border after leaked audio emerged of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas calling the situation there "unsustainable." "The other day I was in Mexico, and I said, if our border is our first line of defense, we're going to lose and this is unsustainable," Mayorkas said as he spoke to Border Patrol agents in Texas on Thursday, audio of which was obtained by Fox News. "We can't continue like this, our people in the field can't continue and our system isn't built for it."
MSM Is Lying:
Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium Did Reveal Election Fraud

Mark Schwendau
Once again the mockingbird media is marching in lockstep to a hidden agenda. Whether it is for the socialists, New World Order, or the communists, we do not know. What we do know is they are liars engaging in misinformation. We also remember Mike Lindell’s five million dollar cash prize he offered to anybody (cyber expert)? Not one person could prove Biden won, or that fraud had not been committed.
Farrakhan Roots Feed Black Lives Matter Movement Anti-Semitism
Samantha Mandeles
After more than a year of escalating anti-Semitic attacks evidence shows that the key groups and figures behind the Black Lives Matter movement – heavily influenced in it's ideology by Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam – have been instrumental in stoking Jew-hate disguised as social justice activism.
Coalition for a Democratic Workplace Blast Dems' Plan to
Make Union Dues Tax Deductible – Right-to-Work in Play

The deductible union dues provision is intended by Democrats as one of several "pro-worker incentives" in the bill that faces an uncertain future in both the Senate and the House. A major factor in the decline of union membership in recent decades has been the continuing growth in popularity of right-to-work laws that guarantee workers the right to keep a job without having to join a union. There are currently 27 right-to-work states.
Disabled Workers Concerned That Proposed Wage Hike
 May Leave Them Unemployed

Matt Thibodeau is a professional packager whose work includes shrink-wrapping, glueing, labeling, bagging, and package assembling. He eats lunch with his coworkers, and he typically gets home before 5:00 p.m. When he gets his check every two weeks his colleagues cheer for him, even though the average take-home pay at his Pennsylvania plant is $3.40 per hour, less than half the federal minimum of $7.25. Matt, like many of his coworkers at Associated Production Services, Inc. (APS), has intellectual and and physical disabilities.
The Great Parent Revolt
Katharine C. Gorka
As overreach in classrooms by progressive school administrators, nonprofits and the federal government has reached new heights, parents are stepping up to fight back. Moms for Liberty, Informed Parents of California, EdFirstNC, NJ Parental Rights, No Left Turn in Education and Parents Against Critical Theory are just a few of the hundreds of new parent groups that have emerged across the country in recent months. Many parents have become education activists because of schools’ failure to bring children back into the classroom or their continued imposition of mask mandates.

Report: Diversity ‘Bureaucrats’
Outnumber History Professors at Top Colleges

“Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) bureaucracies are like the political officers attached to military units in the old Soviet Union in that they exist to enforce ideological discipline,” he explained. “CRT has successfully captured large segments of universities with the assistance of this institutional mechanism for control.”
Elder Ignores Mainstream Media in First Online Press Conference
Roger L. Simon
Who’d a thunk it? Neither the Los Angeles Times nor Politico (both of whom had multiple reporters) and a host of other mainstream media suspects, including the Associated Press, got to ask a single question Friday at Larry Elder’s first online Zoom press conference for the California gubernatorial recall. The likes of the Bay Area Yu Channel, the Sing Tao Daily and Lynn Ku of KTSF did.
Cops Fired for Guarding ‘defund the police’ Dem Rep. Cori Bush
Without Permission

St. Louis Sheriff Vernon Betts told KMOV that he initially warned now-former deputies Tylance Jackson and Maurice Thompson to quit moonlighting as muscle for Bush (D-Mo.) and fill out the proper forms after they accompanied her on a tour of St. Louis jails in April. However, Betts said he was told by Veterans Affairs Police several weeks later that Jackson and Thompson were providing security for Bush again.
American Medical Association, Descending Into Wokeness,
Calls for Eliminating Sex on Birth Certificates

Jarrett Stepman
Another formerly serious institution in America has gone woke. The American Medical Association, a professional association and lobbying group for physicians and medical students, issued a report in June calling for eliminating biological sex on birth certificates. The policy change is being promoted on WebMD social media, which is why it’s suddenly garnering more attention.
Scottish Schools Will Allow Kids as Young as Four to
Change Gender Without Asking Parents

Mary Chastain
A 70-page document, issued to schools north of the border on Thursday, calls on teachers not to question pupils if they say that they want to transition to live as a boy or a girl and to instead ask them for their new name and pronouns. The controversial guidance claims that it is possible to "come out" as transgender "at any age" and that the views of young people should be respected if they do not want their parents to be informed.
Parents' rights go out the window
Transgender Surgery for Children Constitutes Child Abuse,
Texas Commissioner Rules

Transgender surgery on the genitals of a child constitutes child abuse under Texas law, according to the head of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). "Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse, subject to all rules and procedures pertaining to child abuse," DFPS Commissioner Jaime Masters wrote in a letter to Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday. Earlier this month, Abbott had requested clarification on the issue from DFPS, which is responsible for investigating charges of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of children, elderly adults, and adults with disabilities.
