FLORIDA: Lee County Republican Executive Committee Demands Special Session to bar WHO, the IRS & FBI

The below article describes Resolutions by the Lee County Republican Executive Committee (REC) to ban Dominion Voting Machines; restrict FBI and IRS actions against political enemies and criticizes the World Health Organization.

Seems like great Resolutions which should be considered by all of Florida’s RECs as well.

Lee Co. GOP demands Special Session to bar FBI and IRS, brands WHO as security threat

Lee County Republicans officially branded international health and economic groups as national security threats and demanded Florida restrict the IRS and FBI.

At a special meeting of the Lee County Republican Executive Committee (REC), members passed a series of resolutions related to hot-button issues.

That included passage of a resolution that criticized Dominion and ES&S voting machines and called for Florida to only allow paper ballots. Supporters of former President Donald Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen have leveled accusations about the security and accuracy of Dominion voting machines, and activists in multiple states have sought to nix any technology from the company.

“The two systems currently approved are Dominion and ES&S, and numerous issues exist diminishing credibility of these companies who have failed to disclose their financials and ownership as private companies,” the Lee County GOP resolution reads.

It also calls on Gov. Ron DeSantis to use executive authority to prohibit the use of any electronic voting machines in the state.

Equal Justice, They Called It

Victor Davis Hanson writes for future historians so that they might understand how The United States of America went from a premise of ‘exceptionalism’ to ‘exceptional failure-ism’ otherwise known as ‘social justice’ and ‘equity’.

Equal Justice, They Said

We are now a revolutionary society in decline using the courts, prosecutors, the administrative state, and the law itself to punish enemies, help friends, and declare such asymmetry “social justice.”

By Victor Davis Hanson, September 18, 2022

What once distinguished the United States from illiberal regimes following the Orwellian mantra “some are more equal than others” was the hallowed American idea of “equal justice under the law.”

The phrase is engraved above the entrance to the United States Supreme Court—an ideal that took centuries to achieve. Yet it is an ancient concept—what the Greeks called isonomia that distinguished classical democratic Athens from its anti-democratic rivals. Isonomia later became enshrined as the central criterion of all Western consensual governments.

Does it still exist in Joe Biden’s America?

In many ways, no—due both to state and private vendettas as well as state efforts to destroy rather than merely defeat political opponents.

Is the law equally applied at the border?

Ask yourself whether you are more likely to be hounded by the federal government for not being vaccinated if you are a citizen in the U.S. military, or illegally violating federal immigration law as you storm the southern border?

Who needs a passport to leave and enter the United States—a citizen or an illegal alien?

If you nullify federal law and refuse to hand over a detained illegal alien to federal immigration agents, are you more or less likely to be prosecuted than someone who likewise deliberately seeks to nullify federal law by bulldozing on his property a nest of federally protected squirrels?

What tradition of Western jurisprudence allows violent criminals in America’s largest cities to be released upon booking?

What law states they are instantly free to commit more crimes without worry of incarceration or punishment, while those accused of illegally parading sit in jail for years awaiting charges?

Is it a greater crime in this republic to walk peacefully through an open door into the Capitol, as at least some who were charged as a result of January 6 did, or to beat to near death an innocent bystander as many do who are released after arrest?

As far as that reprehensible, buffoonish January 6 riot, compare the treatment accorded to those hundreds—many guilty of “illegally parading or “demonstrating in the Capitol”—with some 14,000 who were arrested in 120 days of rioting, looting, arson, assault, and murder during the spring and summer 2020 riots.

Did the FBI spend over a year tracking down the names of those known from videos who torched federal buildings, murdered those in the street, sought to storm the White House grounds, and set up no-go zones in downtowns?

To incite the January 6 riot was prosecuted as a crime, but Kamala Harris, who was soon to be a vice-presidential candidate in the summer of 2020, could incite with impunity. Even more, she helped to raise bail for violent offenders during those riots and said of the summer-long “protests” shortly after the violent attempt to storm the White House grounds:

But they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop, and this is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not going to stop, and everyone beware, because they’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day Everyone should take note of that, on both levels, that they’re not going to let up—and they should not. And we should not.

What do those who had recently torched the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church take away from Harris’ adolescent greenlighting?

After all, Harris essentially promised continued protests, which she knew had so often turned terribly violent and descended into death and destruction. Were her insurrectionary calls a crime or at least worthy of a cell phone grab? A leg iron? A squad of FBI vehicles swarming her car?

Is questioning an election outcome a crime? Or even taking steps to challenge the elections?

That is, did a John Eastman have the power of former Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and current January 6 committee chairman Benny Thompson (D-Miss.), who, with little or no evidence, took far more dramatic measures in 2004 to reject the Ohio electors and thus attempt to nullify that year’s presidential election results?

Did Stacey Abrams “undermine democracy” by touring the country denying she had been beaten in the Georgia gubernatorial election by some 50,000 votes? Did Hillary Clinton again undermine election integrity when she publicly urged Joe Biden not to concede the 2020 election if he lost the popular vote, or claim that Donald Trump was not the legitimate president of the United States?

Does Article 88 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice apply to some, none, or all retired high-ranking military officers?

What are we to make of retired lieutenant colonels who urged the military well before the 2020 election to remove Trump from office if they thought he questioned the election?

When generals and admirals called their commander-in chief a Mussolini-type character, a liar, like the Nazis, akin to the architects of Auschwitz, or wrote that the “sooner the better” he should be removed, were those violations to be prosecuted?

Did retired officers have their businesses or employers’ contracts with the Pentagon nullified?

Or was it only a more obscure retired officer, such as Lt. General Gary Volesky? He was a conservative who tweeted that the first lady (not the commander-in-chief) sounded hypocritical on the issue of abortion—and thus was fired as a Pentagon consultant. Was that equal administrative justice?
Report Ad

Is there really a Logan Act, the ossified 18th-century statute under which no one has ever successfully been prosecuted? It depends.

In 2016 James Comey’s FBI and the Justice Department interim head Sally Yates used that ruse as a pretext to set a perjury trap for National Security Advisor designate retired Gen. Michael Flynn. But did not former Secretary of State John Kerry meet stealthily with Iranian high officials during the Trump Administration to reassure them that the Iran Deal could be salvaged after the Trump tenure—a deliberate Logan Act subversion of his then government’s foreign policy?

Is it a crime to withhold presidential papers from the National Archives? Was that Donald Trump’s sin: that he did not more carefully and officially declare documents at his residence as unclassified or his own personal papers?

Was that a clumsy way of doing what George W. Bush did in 2001 when he simply issued an executive order allowing an ex-president or his heirs to veto release of presidential papers? Did FBI agents with guns enter one of the Obama mansions to discover why ownership of thousands of pages of his personal papers was still in dispute?

Did the FBI raid the home of the late Clinton-Administration National Security Advisor Sandy Berger to see whether he sought to hide or erase other documents, in addition to those he stole from the National Archives and destroyed? Was he ever frog-marched or put in leg irons?

What were minor celebrities and politicians trying to do in December 2016 when they cut commercials begging the electors not to follow their federally mandated roles in voting in accordance with their states’ popular votes? Were they pointing a “dagger at the heart of democracy”? Were they “insurrectionists”?

Conspiracy is a word that the Biden Administration reintroduced to the American discourse after a hiatus since the 1950s and 1960s. And the Left was eager to charge hundreds with conspiracy for storming the capitol or “colluding” with Russia to rig the 2016 election.

But Molly Bell in a 2021 Time essay proudly also used that word in the scariest sense in modern memory. She outlined how the Left, quietly with the DNC, unions, the anarchic left-wing street, and corporate help, all modulated the violent protests to ebb before the election and to be ready to flow again should Biden have lost.

She bragged how nearly $500 million of Silicon Valley dark money was funneled into key preselected precincts to essentially absorb the work of state and local registrars. She gushed how the Left conspired with Silicon Valley to monitor and censor any expressions and opinions on social media felt to be detrimental to the Biden campaign.

Did federal prosecutors pursue racketeering charges against any she named?

Speaking of “conspiracies,” was it legal for Hillary Clinton to hire a foreign national as a campaign helper to spread lies and dirt on her political opponent, even as she hid her role through the DNC, Perkins Coie law firm, and Fusion GPS? What did she have to hide?

Did James Comey’s FBI likewise conspire to interfere in an election by also hiring members of Clinton’s opposition hit team, specifically Christopher Steele and Igor Dyachenko, as FBI informants?

Was all that “democracy dying in darkness”?

That illegal effort to use the federal government to disrupt an election makes the clownish attempt of the Trump keystone cop team to question the electors look like child’s play. Will current National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan be pulled over driving home by an FBI fleet eager to seize his cell phone to ascertain fully his conspiratorial role in 2016 pushing the phony Trump Tower pings, Steele dossier, and collusion hoax to warp a federal election?

How about using equal justice in investigating supposed conspiracies and real violent demonstrations?

Did the FBI team, which monitored school kids’ parents to report back to Merrick Garland about their supposedly racist opposition to critical race theory, also ever monitor Twitter and Facebook to anticipate the next planned riot location of Antifa and BLM? Is it now investigating all the stolen money and diverted funds used for personal extravagance by BLM’s fraudulent leadership?

Donald Trump is continually audited for possible tax violations. Fine, but, given Hunter Biden’s laptop and the testimony of the Biden family co-grifters, has any Biden ever been under serious investigation for not reporting tens of millions of dollars in shake-down money, or gifting millions to Biden children?

How about lying under oath or to federal investigators? Are those activities still crimes?

Could a citizen swear under oath to IRS investigators, as James Comey did under oath to Congress on 245 occasions, that he did not know what was asked or could not remember?

In that context, what do ex-CIA head John Brennan, ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and ex-FBI interim director Andrew McCabe all have in common?

1) They all lied either under oath to Congress or to a federal investigator. 2) They all faced no criminal liability by committing such felonies. 3) Their animus and zeal in pursuing enemies were seen to be useful to the Left and thus they were rewarded by being hired as analysts at either MSNBC or CNN.

Is leaking or improperly possessing classified or confidential government information still a crime?

It seems that is one of the accusations against Donald Trump: that he had in his possession classified federal property that might have been insecure.

In contrast, was it a felony to leak to the media a rough draft of a confidential Supreme Court opinion—with the intent of helping to either undermine or change it? Was the unidentified, unprosecuted leaker a felon or a hero?

Were Trump’s boxes at home as insecure as the confidential, memorialized memos that James Comey wrote on FBI devices shortly after a confidential one-on-one conversation with the president of the United States, which he then deliberately leaked through a third party to the New York Times?

Was all that a conspiratorial gambit to fuel public pressure for a special prosecutor for the Russian collusion hoax? Was that not a clandestine effort that worked brilliantly in the appointment of his friend, former FBI Director Robert Mueller?

As special counsel, Mueller went on to waste 22 months and $40 million to prove that Russian collusion was a Clinton-FBI generated hoax as critics had insisted from the very outset of the appearance of the Steele dossier. Mueller was successful only in wounding an administration through the deliberate, daily leaked rumors that instantly became “walls are closing in” and “bombshell” media lies.

Is it a crime to threaten a Supreme Court justice?

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) did just that in front of the Supreme Court doors, when he riled up protestors by threats to individual justices:

I want to tell you Gorsuch. I want to tell you Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Had Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) done the same and warned both Justices Sotomayor and Kagan that the two “won’t know what hit you,” what would the Biden Administration have done?

It is a felony to mass at a justice’s home, and threaten his person, in attempts to warp a judicial ruling? Attorney General Merrick Garland saw no problems when a left-wing mob descended on the homes of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. No one was arrested or indicted. No wonder an admitted would-be assassin later felt he could approach, with impunity, the Kavanaugh residence or that a mob could, with impunity, drive him out of a restaurant.

Again, would Garland have stood by had a MAGA crowd swarmed the home or the dinner table of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson? For that felony, most would likely still be sitting in jail awaiting charges.

Is it a crime to destroy subpoenaed property?

Currently, that is one of many unproved charges floated to justify the raid on the Trump home. If it is, Hillary Clinton destroyed thousands of subpoenaed and likely improper or illegal emails. She even ordered her assistant to destroy devices that might have risked leaving electronic prints of them.

The Mueller investigation’s FBI team simply shrugged that its phone data of its employees under federal subpoena were “mistakenly” wiped clean. Were any of these miscreants tried for defying a court order? For obstruction of justice?

In today’s America, it is a far greater sin to illegally parade at the nation’s Capitol than to burn down a federal courthouse in Portland.

A policeman who recklessly puts his knee on the neck of an ex-felon suspect, contributing to his death in custody, will be known to the nation in 24 hours as the most hated man in America and destined for a life behind bars. To add that the suspect was high on fentanyl and methamphetamines, violently resisting arrest, apprehended after committing a felony, striking officers, and in the past a convicted home invader who stuck a gun to the womb of a pregnant woman is irrelevant.

But not the same case is a Capitol policeman, with his own record of reckless conduct, who lethally shoots an unarmed female suspect and military veteran, for the misdemeanor crime of unlawfully entering through a window.

Unlike the former, the latter will not be immediately identified. His picture will not be splashed over the media. The results of the investigation into his conduct will instead be suppressed for months. And his critics will be smeared as racists. And the deceased? She will be slandered postmortem as a nut and pervert, while George Floyd was memorialized with a halo and angelic wings.

So, what has happened to blind Lady Justice?

The new Antifa/BLM/Squad/socialist Left filtered into government and absorbed the Biden Administration. It knows it lacks majority public support, so it has weaponized the justice system to punish enemies and ignore the crimes of allies—all to be excused by its morally superior ends that justify the use of such discreditable means. And the Left wishes to send a message to Americans: We are serious and mean business. So, join us, and receive indemnity from the federal government; oppose us and watch your back.

The result of all this is that America is not quite America anymore. We are now a revolutionary society in decline that uses the courts, prosecutors, the administrative state, and the law itself to punish enemies, help friends, and declare such asymmetry “social justice.” There is no equality under the law, but simply “some are more equal than others.”

If Matt Walsh’s Reporting On Child Castration Is ‘Dangerous,’ What Is Biden’s ‘MAGA Extremism’ Rhetoric That Got A Teen Killed?

The Democrats are the party of murder, child castration and political oppression. Who would vote for these savages? This isn’t merely a political division. This is life and death. Perhaps a national divorce is the only peaceful resolution.

If Matt Walsh’s Reporting Is ‘Dangerous,’ What Is Biden-Backed ‘MAGA Extremism’ Rhetoric That Got A Teen Killed?

By: Elle Purnell, The Federalist, 

‘Matt Walsh is inciting a terror campaign against a hospital,’ one blue-checkmark raged on Twitter. ‘He will get people hurt or killed.’

Journalist Matt Walsh uncovered videos showing that Vanderbilt University Medical Center has been mutilating sex-confused kids and bragging about the profit margins of doing so since 2018, and some left-wingers came away with the impression that Vanderbilt, not the children it manipulated and maimed, was the victim. Accusing Walsh of “terrorism,” “harassment,” and “behaving dangerously,” they’re claiming Walsh is inciting violence against the medical center and are trying to shut down his reporting as a result.

But while a journalist publishing what the corporate media refuses to gets accused of stirring up hypothetical violence, an 18-year-old kid was just killed when he was run down by a man who said he thought the “teen was part of a Republican extremist group” — just weeks after the president of the United States ominously smeared “MAGA Republicans” as a “threat to the very soul of this country.”

Leftists weren’t wailing about “incitement to violence” then, and the national press almost universally ignored the slaying of 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson. They saved their outrage for Walsh, who merely published information, screenshots, and videos he’d obtained from Vanderbilt to reveal the medical center’s mutilation of minors’ healthy organs, the calloused financial incentives of which the center boasted, and the steps the center had taken to silence internal dissent.

Noah Berlatsky, a writer with bylines in The Washington Post and The Atlantic, flagged Walsh’s reporting for Twitter Support and accused the tech platform of being “complicit in terrorism” and potentially “murder” if it didn’t shut Walsh’s reporting down.

Leah Torres, an abortion center director who had her medical license suspended two years ago, said Walsh was “behaving dangerously” and “is going to get people hurt and/or killed.” She also claims to have reported the post, saying “that hardly feels like enough,” and tagging the FBI.

Alejandra Caraballo, an instructor at Harvard Law School, claimed without evidence that “Vanderbilt medical center has had to shift medical appointments for its trans clinic to virtual telehealth appointments as a result of threats being made.”

“Matt Walsh is inciting a terror campaign against a hospital and disrupting care,” she added. “He will get people hurt or killed.”

She also cited an equally slanted NBC News article that framed the topic this way: “Several children’s hospitals, most notably Boston Children’s, have been the targets of a far-right harassment campaign for months, led by anti-trans influencers with millions of collective followers who have spread misinformation about the hospitals’ gender-affirming treatment for minors.” NBC failed to say what part of the reporting on hospitals’ abuse of minors was “misinformation.”

Self-described “woke social justice warrior” Zack Hunt, another Twitter user to flag Walsh for the FBI, accused Walsh of being a “terrorist” and running a “terrorist campaign,” and called for a stop to his supposed “efforts to terrorize our city before he incite[s] more threats of violence.”

RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES: Nearly 42 Thousand New Yorkers Abandon State for Florida

Fleeing slave states to free states.

Residents have developed a distaste for the Big Apple. New York Post: A record-breaking number of Empire State residents switched their driver’s licenses to the Sunshine State version last month, according to a Post analysis of Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles data. A total of 5,838 New Yorkers made the switch in August — the highest recorded number for a single month in history, the numbers show. Year to date, 41,885 New Yorkers have handed over their licenses after moving south, a torrid pace that’s pointing to a new annual record (New York Post). Daily Wire: The New York exodus began when people left the heavily-restricted state during the pandemic to live in the Republican-led Florida that had lifted COVID restrictions, but rising crime rates in New York also seem to play a factor in people’s decision to leave (Daily Wire).

HOW RED STATES CAN SAVE THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC FROM SELF-DESTRUCTION

How can a state break free from federal management that is detrimental to its citizenry?

Every part of our country does not have to go down with the larger ship. A state, or group of states, could choose to remove itself from federal processes. By that, I am not recommending secession from the union, but deciding to forego all federal monies and thereby reject the federal control that comes with federal funds.

A change in taxation would be essential, of course. The state or states involved would collect federal income tax from their citizens. The citizens would pay federal taxes for only those federal services they continue to use.

So, they would pay taxes to support the military, international relations, debt retirement, etc. They would not make contributions to Social Security, welfare, food stamps, Medicare or Medicaid, the U.S. Department of Education, or any of the other social or regulatory federal programs.

If taking this path, the states must assume responsibility for those federal programs important to their citizenry. So, obviously, state taxes would increase on some level, while federal taxes would decrease dramatically.

The Only Way Out of the March to Socialism

The states would gain, of course, control over those social and regulatory programs they choose to bring under state management, and they can discontinue as many programs as their voters desire to stop paying for. This can accurately be viewed as a return to the self-government and federalist structure on which the country was founded, and restore systems of operation that are far healthier than the current arrangement.

Removal from federal programming is the only alternative to the ever-increasing reach of the federal government. If a state or states can make the numbers work, this approach could result in saving the republic. Thus, states choosing to remove resources from the federal government may be the best hope for the survival of the republic.

At the very least, this would provide the option of living in this country outside the constant reach of an all-powerful federal system. Personal responsibility and liberty would be the hallmark of those states. That seems to me a great place to live — kind of like the entire United States of America was just a few decades ago.

Democrats Spend $53 Million To Help ‘MAGA Republicans’ Win Primaries

Even as President Joe Biden has warned voters of electing “MAGA Republicans” to office, Democrats have been spending millions of dollars to help them win primaries, per a new Washington Post report released on Tuesday.

The report, comprising analysis by The Washington Post, found that Democratic groups had spent $53 million on ads against GOP primary candidates. The attack ads were directed at candidates seen as more politically moderate, effectively helping their Trump-endorsed and Trump-aligned challengers win the primary.

The biggest expenditure was in the Illinois gubernatorial race, where the campaign of incumbent Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and the Democratic Governors’ Association spent a total of $34.5 million to elevate Republican state Sen. Darren Bailey in the primary, which he won on June 28. Bailey was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and has questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election.

He has also attracted notoriety for analogizing abortion with the Holocaust and for co-sponsoring state legislation to expel Chicago from the state of Illinois for its progressive politics.

Campaign spending in support of other pro-Trump Republican candidates amounts to nearly $19 million, with the largest expenditure coming from the Senate Majority PAC, which has spent $3.2 million to help retired Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc win New Hampshire’s GOP Senate Primary. The PAC’s ads have targeted state Sen. Chuck Morse, a moderate candidate endorsed by Gov. Chris Sununu, as “another sleazy politician.”

Veronica Yoo, a spokeswoman for the PAC, told the Post that the attacks were in response to Morse’s criticism of Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, who is running for re-election in the state.

Democrats spent significant amounts in six gubernatorial primaries, two Senate primaries and five House primaries to support populist Republican candidates, according to the Post. These included support for Pennsylvania State Sen. Doug Mastriano, who is the GOP nominee, where such groups spent $1.2 million.

They also spent over $4 million in the Colorado GOP Senate primary, though moderate candidate Joe O’Dea defeated populist State Rep. John Hanks, as well as nearly $7 million in gubernatorial races in Nevada, Colorado and Michigan.

The spending comes even as President Joe Biden has made opposition to Trump-endorsed and Trump-aligned GOP candidates, whom he terms “MAGA Republicans,” the primary focus of the Democrats’ midterm campaigns. In a major speech in Philadelphia on Sept. 1, Biden said that they “threaten the very foundations of our republic.”

The Democrats’ spending patterns have been criticized by some in the party. Former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt, who represented Missouri in the House for 28 years, told the Post that such spending was “a red line.”

“A candidate who is not for having elections anymore has got to be kept out of office. We have to protect democracy. Democracy is a fragile thing,” he said, adding that the party was “playing with fire” by spending to promote them.

The Senate Majority PAC did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

China Swamp: Where Personal Corruption Breeds National Security Threats

The Hunter Biden laptop is the gift that keeps on giving.  Memos on the laptop show the Biden family was involved in 21 deals in 2017 and 2018 to sell U.S. natural gas facilities and other energy assets to communist China.  The ultimate goal was to give China ownership in all different phases of the natural gas industry in the United States.  Lest you still believe the fairy tale Hunter Biden’s laptop is just Russian disinformation, you should know two whistleblowers with first-hand knowledge of the deals have stepped forward to verify the details, including the fact Joe Biden was a partner in one deal to the point he had office space to work on it.  This is another reason to elect Republicans to the House.  They have promised oversight hearings to bring all this to light.

It has also recently been reported that emails show Hunter Biden offered to introduce business associates to a high level Chinese Communist Party official, helped a Chinese influence operation gain a foothold in America, and co-founded Sinopec, the Chinese state-run energy firm to which Joe Biden has been selling oil out of the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

But it’s not just the Biden family.  Chinese incursions into the U.S. are widespread, extending throughout the Biden administration and beyond, and involving land purchases, media and influence operations, and infiltration of college campuses.

The Energy Department reportedly sold advanced government-funded battery technology to China.  A Biden climate appointee who talks openly of leaving fossil fuels behind studied at a Chinese university flagged for its ties to China’s military.  The university specializes in defense research and cyberattacks.  Joe Biden appointed John Podesta to oversee $370 billion in climate spending, which is worrisome because Podesta sings China’s praises and encourages Chinese investment in American infrastructure.  Last year, Joe Biden reversed Donald Trump’s ban on American businesses working with China-connected TikTok.

Also thanks to Joe Biden, colleges and universities no longer have to disclose their connections to China’s Confucius Institutes.  China is rebranding the institutes to escape all the bad publicity the institutes have generated.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which receives federal funding, hired 20 members of the Chinese Communist Party between 2015 and 2021.  There are concerns YouTube demonetizes channels raising questions about China’s activities.   A Chinese biotech firm with ties to China’s military and COVID-19 program bought 1,400 acres of farmland in Florida to build a research facility.  Observers are concerned this is part of China’s expressly stated goal of developing bioweaponry.  Some 162 scientists who worked at Los Alamos returned home to China over the last 35 years to help China develop its nuclear and advanced weapons programs.

The China swamp is where personal corruption breeds national security threats.  If we’re going to expose our soft underbelly to the Chinese communists, don’t be surprised when, one day, they slice it open.

Tell your congressional representative to get on the case.  But China’s influence operations also extend to the state and local level.  You might also start asking questions about China’s involvement in your neck of the woods.

California Governor Gavin Newsom Signs ‘Sweeping’ New Climate Hoax Measures

DOJ Tramples on the Constitution

The United States under the Biden administration is using the force of government to harass the late Phyllis Schlafly’s group in Alabama.

In recent months, the Eagle Forum of Alabama has helped write legislation in that state to protect children with gender confusion from receiving “treatment” that could permanently damage them.

In his End of Day Report (9/9/22), Gary Bauer writes, “After Alabama banned transgender surgeries on children, the Biden Administration sued the state in federal court to block the law. But they’re not just arguing against the constitutionality of the law. They are also going after a conservative public policy group that lobbied on behalf of the law.” Of course, that group is the Eagle Forum of Alabama.

The United States’ Department of Justice issued a subpoena in August demanding records from the Eagle Forum of Alabama, stating: “Several public statements suggest that Eagle Forum of Alabama staff may have had some involvement in drafting the legislation or its predecessor bills. As a result, the United States is issuing the enclosed subpoena for certain records in the Eagle Forum of Alabama’s possession from January 1, 2017 through the present.”

The official subpoena demands: “any draft legislation, proposed legislations, or model legislation.” This included all their communiques on the subject, e.g., “any social media postings.”

Eagle Forum of Alabama responded to this “unprecedented request”: “This should cause every single advocacy group or individual in America engaged in the legislative process to pause and consider the potential ramifications if any part of this subpoena is allowed to stand.” Becky Garritson, the executive director of the organization, explained more to me on a radio segment.

Kristen Ullman, president of Eagle Forum (nationally), comments on the wider issue here: “If the Department of Justice doesn’t like your viewpoint it may target you next.”

What is the government alleging was illegal? Certainly it’s not illegal for an organization to be involved with crafting legislation?

The Biden Administration’s action is particularly astounding because we do not yet fully grasp the long-term deleterious effects of the puberty blockers and body-part-removal surgeries to “cure” gender dysphoria.

In her eye-opening book, Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters (2020), Abigail Shrier chronicles the incredible harm being foisted on so many children in our society today, especially girls, because of this current fad of transgender mania.

Shrier, a writer for The Wall Street Journal, notes, “In 2016, natal females accounted for 46 percent of all sex reassignment surgeries in the United States. A year later it was 70 percent.”

She adds, “Some small proportion of the population will always be transgender. But perhaps the current craze will not always lure troubled young girls with no history of gender dysphoria, enlisting them in a lifetime of hormone dependency and disfiguring surgeries….No adolescent should pay this high a price for having been, briefly, a follower.”

The left is imposing on this country a form of mental insanity. Both God and science teach us that we are either male or female. God said He has created us male or female in His image. Science teaches us that we have trillions of cells in the human body, and virtually every one of them provides a marker that you are either male or female.

No one denies gender dysphoria, where some children feel confused. “Am I a girl trapped in a boy’s body?” they wonder. But experts say that about 95% of these children with gender dysphoria will grow out of this by around puberty—if the process is not interrupted along the way.

Tragically, there are many people in high places that are interrupting this process all too often.

And then when children go through with some form of transition, very often deep depression follows, as documented at www.sexchangeregret.com, a ministry to help the hurting.

Dr. Ryan T. Anderson, author of When Harry Became Sally, writes: “The most thorough follow-up of sex-reassigned people—extending over 30 years and conducted in Sweden, where the culture is strongly supportive of the transgendered—documents their lifelong mental unrest. Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to 20 times that of comparable peers.”

The founders gave us the First Amendment to enshrine in the Constitution the right to freely practice religion and by extension, the right of conscience. We also have free speech rights and the right to petition our government in case of grievances. That would include lobbying for legislation for the good of society.

But the Biden administration is steam rolling over conscience rights, despite the Constitution.

Phyllis Schlafly herself once told me in a 2004 television interview: “The Constitution is not out of date.  It’s just as good today as when it was written.” Would that it was being followed today by the Biden administration.

FBI Hero Paying Hefty Price for Exposing Unjust ‘Persecution’ of Conservative Americans

large number of FBI agents were taken off child sex abuse cases and reassigned to work on trumped up political investigations.

Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to exaggerate the threat of domestic terrorism, and ­using an “overzealous” January 6 ­investigation to harass conservative Americans and violate their constitutional rights.

Whistleblower Identified: FBI Special Agent Steve Friend Goes Public

Friend, 37, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member, was suspended Monday, stripped of his gun and badge, and escorted out of the FBI field office in Daytona Beach, Fla., after complaining to his supervisors about the violations.

He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 ­subjects accused of misdemeanor ­offenses.

This American hero, the father of two small children, has blown up his “dream career” because he could not live with his conscience if he continued to be part of what he sees as the unjust persecution of conservative Americans.

FBI hero paying the price for exposing unjust ‘persecution’ of conservative Americans

By  September 21, 2022:

Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to exaggerate the threat of domestic terrorism, and ­using an “overzealous” January 6 ­investigation to harass conservative Americans and violate their constitutional rights.

Friend, 37, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member, was suspended Monday, stripped of his gun and badge, and escorted out of the FBI field office in Daytona Beach, Fla., after complaining to his supervisors about the violations.

He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 ­subjects accused of misdemeanor ­offenses.

This American hero, the father of two small children, has blown up his “dream career” because he could not live with his conscience if he continued to be part of what he sees as the unjust persecution of conservative Americans.

“I have an oath to uphold the Constitution,” he told supervisors when he asserted his conscientious objection to joining an Aug. 24 raid on a J6 subject in the Jacksonville, Fla., area. “I have a moral objection and want to be considered a conscientious objector.”

Friend, who did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 election, said he told his immediate boss twice that he believed the raid, and the investigative process leading up to it, violated FBI policy and the subject’s right under the Sixth Amendment to a fair trial and Eighth Amendment right against cruel and unusual punishment.

Friend served as a SWAT team member.

Multiple violations

In his whistleblower complaint to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, obtained by The Post, Friend lays out multiple violations of FBI policy involving J6 investigations in which he was involved.

He says he was removed from active investigations into child sexual exploitation and human trafficking to work on J6 cases sent from DC. He was told “domestic terrorism was a higher priority” than child pornography. As a result, he believes his child exploitation investigations were harmed.

He also has reported his concerns about a politicized FBI to Republican members of Congress, among 20 whistleblowers from the bureau who have come forward with similar complaints.

Among Friend’s allegations:

  • The Washington, DC, field office is “manipulating” FBI case management protocol and farming out J6 cases to field offices across the country to create the false impression that right-wing domestic violence is a widespread national problem that goes far beyond the “black swan” event of Jan. 6, 2021.
  • As a result, he was listed as lead agent in cases he had not investigated and which his supervisor had not signed off on, in violation of FBI policy.
  •  FBI domestic terrorism cases are being opened on innocent American citizens who were nowhere near the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, based on anonymous tips to an FBI hotline or from Facebook spying on their messages. These tips are turned into investigative tools called “guardians,” after the FBI software that collates them.
  •  The FBI has post-facto designated a grassy area outside the Capitol as a restricted zone, when it was not restricted on Jan. 6, 2021, in order to widen the net of prosecutions.
  •  The FBI intends to prosecute everyone even peripherally associated with J6 and another wave of J6 subjects are about to be referred to the FBI’s Daytona Beach resident agency “for investigation and arrest.”
  •  The Jacksonville area was “inundated” with “guardian” notifications and FBI agents were dispatched to conduct surveillance and knock on people’s doors, including people who had not been in Washington, DC, on Jan. 6, 2021, or who had been to the Trump rally that day but did not go ­inside the Capitol.

Friend says he was punished after complaining to his bosses about being dragged into J6 investigations that were “violating citizens’ Sixth Amendment rights due to overzealous charging by the DOJ and biased jury pools in Washington, DC.”

His top-secret security clearance was suspended last week because he “entered FBI space [his office] and downloaded documents from FBI computer systems [an employee handbook and guidelines for employee disciplinary procedures] to an unauthorized removable flash drive.”

In a Sept. 16 letter from the head of FBI human resources, he was told he was losing his security clearance also because he “espoused beliefs which demonstrate questionable judgment [and demonstrated] an unwillingness to comply with rules and regulations.”

Reprisals from bosses

In his whistleblower complaint, Friend describes “reprisals” from his supervisors after he voiced his conscientious objections.

He says they ignored his complaint about “manipulative casefile practice [which] creates false and misleading crime statistics, constituting false official federal statements.

“Instead of hundreds of investigations stemming from an isolated incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, FBI and DOJ officials point to significant increases in domestic violent extremism and terrorism around the United States.

“At no point was I advised or counseled on where to take my disclosure beyond the reprising officials above; the threatened reprisal constituted a de facto gag on my whistleblowing.”

On Aug. 19, he first told his immediate boss, Supervisory Senior Resident Agent Greg Federico, that he believed “it was inappropriate to use an FBI SWAT team to arrest a subject for misdemeanor offenses and opined that the subject would likely face extended detainment and biased jury pools in Washington, DC.

“I suggested alternatives such as the issuance of a court summons or utilizing surveillance groups to determine an optimal, safe time for a local sheriff deputy to contact the subjects and advise them about the existence of the arrest warrant.”

Federico told him it would have been better to just “call in sick” rather than voice his objection and “threatened reprisal indirectly by asking how long I saw myself continuing to work for the FBI.”

DeSantis Airlines Flies Unfriendly Skies

If Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ flying illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard was a political stunt, it sure worked.  Finally, the country is buzzing about illegal immigration, and Joe Biden’s open borders policies are getting the attention they deserve.  But left-wing activists and their willing accomplices in the press hate DeSantis for it, and are launching Stinger missiles – including a class action lawsuit alleging misrepresentation – into his operation.

DeSantis’ flights are meant to draw attention to the ruinous consequences of Biden’s open borders policies: chaos at the border, fentanyl deaths, and a growing terrorist threat chief among them.

Biden’s border chaos continues.  The border patrol reports it has encountered more than two million illegal aliens so far this fiscal year, a record number.  That’s 8,000 encounters a day, the highest ever.  That doesn’t even count the ‘got-aways’.  All these people are now in the country.  Instead of closing the border, Kamala Harris wants to reward these law-breakers with a pathway to citizenship.  Two more Texas counties responded to the border chaos by declaring it an “invasion” – bringing the total to 29 – and Texas Governor Greg Abbott has just designated Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations.

Speaking of terrorists, Venezuelan paramilitary personnel are embedding themselves into north-bound caravans and organizing into cell structures led by unit commanders once inside the United States.  So it appears Latin American socialists are not done exporting revolution just yet.  On top of that, an Inspector General report found the Biden administration let Afghan evacuees into the country who were not properly vetted, some of whom are national security risks.  Oh, Joe, what have you done.

As for fentanyl, Florida authorities seized enough fentanyl to kill four million people.  The fentanyl was routed through California, but there was enough left there to kill a girl who died at school and cause six other students to overdose.  Record amounts of fentanyl and meth are being seized in Texas and Arizona.  Oh Joe, what have you done.

Arizona authorities have lost track of 550 alien children.  It is feared many of the missing children are now victims of sex trafficking.  Almost 750 illegal aliens have died trying to cross the southern border this fiscal year.  Texas morgues are ordering more refrigerators to keep up with the flow of dead bodies.  Oh Joe, what have you done.

Double down, that’s what he’s done.  In previous commentaries, I’ve given you more than two dozen policy changes the Biden administration has made to open the border.  Here are two more to add to the list:  prohibiting the use of GPS technology to track the whereabouts of illegal aliens released into the U.S., and allowing illegal aliens to receive food stamps, Medicaid, and housing benefits without being barred from permanent admission as a public charge.   Also, an Inspector General report indicated the administration is doing a bad job screening visa applications in foreign countries and cannot certify applicants are properly vetted.

In previous commentaries, I’ve listed various theories that could account for why Biden wants the border open: replacing the present population and getting a permanent political majority for the Democrats.  Here’s one more to add to the mix: Miss Venezuela 1984, now in the United States, warns an open border is prelude to a left-wing authoritarian takeover.  It happened in Venezuela before Chavez took power, and it could happen here.  If that sounds far-fetched, consider this.  DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, an open borders crazy, met with George Soros-funded groups during a trip to the border last year, according to government records.  Wouldn’t you like to know what they discussed?  Is it possible the Biden administration is in touch with socialist revolutionaries from Venezuela now in the United States to start the preparation for a left-wing authoritarian takeover?  Are they here to disrupt the November elections and provoke a national emergency so the elections can be canceled?  If not, what ARE they here for?  Explain it to me.

But if you start asking questions like these, be prepared to fly some unfriendly skies.

The Myth That Our Planet Faces an Overpopulation Crisis

The world is not in danger of being overpopulated, so why do so many insist it is?


Shortly after my wife graduated from college, she joined Zero Population Growth. Looking back, she tells me it was an emotional reaction fueled by reading Paul Ehrlich’s apocalyptic claims. In his book, The Population BombEhrlich wrote: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.”

Ehrlich’s book, despite being spectacularly wrong, influenced millions. Zero Population Growth has morphed into the Population Connection. Ehrlich is unrepentant and still claims the collapse of civilization is a “near certainty” in the not too distant future.

Ehrlich is not the only voice proclaiming the end is near. The UK’s “Optimum Population Trust (OPT) believes Earth may not be able to support more than half its present numbers before the end of the century,” The Telegraph summarized. The OPT movement has attracted followers such as David Attenborough.

In the US, Bernie Sanders recently vowed to support “empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth” as a response to climate change.

Moreover, James Lovelock advanced the Gaia hypothesis that Earth is one “self-regulating organism.” Lovelock forecasts the population of the Earth will fall to one billion from its current total of over seven billion people. Given Lovelock’s cheerfulness about such carnage, it is easy to see why Alan Hall, a senior analyst at The Socionomist, wonders whether “today’s drives to limit consumption and population” are ideologically related to the eugenics movement from the past century. In his essay “A Socionomic Study of Eugenics,” Hall writes in the Socionomist:

Circa 1900, influential intellectuals in Europe and the U.S. voiced concerns about uncontrolled procreation causing a supposed decline in the quality of human beings. Today, similar groups voice concerns about uncontrolled population growth and resource consumption causing a decline in the quality of the environment…Today’s green advocates brandish images of an overrun, dying planet.

Today, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is working to aid the lives of children living “in extreme poverty.” In his book, Factfulness, the late professor of international health Hans Rosling, reports on critics of the Gates Foundation who reject such efforts. “The argument goes like this,” Rosling writes. “If you keep saving poor children, you’ll kill the planet by causing overpopulation.”

In the face of advocates for such beliefs, no wonder Hall asks us to reflect on whether we “will make the cut” if those seeking to cull humanity are successful.

We’ve all heard the SparkNotes version of Malthusian predictions of doom caused by overpopulation. Malthus thought food production could not keep pace with population growth. In his 1798 “Essay on the Principle of Population,” Malthus anticipated the suffering that awaited humanity.

The power of population is so superior to the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able ministers of depopulation. They are the precursors in the great army of destruction; and often finish the dreadful work themselves. But should they fail in this war of extermination, sickly seasons, epidemics, pestilence, and plague, advance in terrific array, and sweep off their thousands and ten thousands. Should success be still incomplete, gigantic inevitable famine stalks in the rear, and with one mighty blow levels the population with the food of the world.

Unlike Ehrlich and others, Malthus had reason to be a pessimist in his lifetime. If Malthus had been writing history or predicting the near future, he would not have been far from the mark.

“The good old days were awful,” observes Johan Norberg in his book Progress: Ten Reasons to Look Forward to the Future. The year 1868 was one of famine in Sweden. Norberg shares this powerful testimony of a survivor remembering back to his childhood.

We often saw mother weeping to herself, and it was hard on a mother, not having any food to put on the table for her hungry children. Emaciated, starving children were often seen going from farm to farm, begging for a few crumbs of bread. One day three children came to us, crying and begging for something to still the pangs of hunger. Sadly, her eyes brimming with tears, our mother was forced to tell them that we had nothing but a few crumbs of bread which we ourselves needed. When we children saw the anguish in the unknown children’s supplicatory eyes, we burst into tears and begged mother to share with them what crumbs we had. Hesitantly she acceded to our request, and the unknown children wolfed down the food before going on to the next farm, which was a good way off from our home. The following day all three were found dead between our farm and the next.

Sweden was so poor back in the 19th century, Norberg observes, that “it was poorer, with shorter life expectancy and higher child mortality than the average sub-Saharan African country.”

The population of Sweden in 1868 was a bit over 3.5 million. Today Sweden’s population is almost 300 percent larger. Is Sweden more overpopulated today than it was in 1868?

Norberg writes, “In 1694, a chronicler in Meulan, Normandy, noted that the hungry harvested the wheat before it was ripe, and ‘large numbers of people lived on grass like animals.’”

Today people live like animals in North Korea. They, too, eat grass and bark off trees.

Geographically, North Korea is almost 25 percent larger than South Korea. The population of modern South Korea is about double the population of starving North Korea.

Overpopulation is relative to the ability of an economy to provide a decent standard of living, adequate nutrition, and minimize the impact on the environment. Using that measure, North Korea, with more land and fewer people, is overpopulated compared to South Korea. Nineteenth-century Sweden was overpopulated compared to today’s Sweden.

If you think South Korea, with its more modern economy, inflicts more harm on the environment than the poor economy of North Korea, you would be wrong.

In North Korea, some rivers run black from uranium mining.

The poor people of North Korea “harvest forests for fuel and to make fields during a succession of famines… Some people resorted to eating bark,” the Scientific American noted earlier this year. The result has been widespread deforestation and a denuding of the landscape.

Ecologist Margaret Palmer visited North Korea, and she saw the “entire landscape was lifeless and barren.” She saw a Malthusian nightmare:

Emaciated looking farmers tilled the earth with plows pulled by oxen and trudged through half-frozen streams to collect nutrient-rich sediments for their fields.

“We went to a national park where we saw maybe one or two birds, but other than that you don’t see any wildlife,” Palmer said.

Dutch soil scientist Joris van der Kamp reports on the North Korean environmental collapse. “The landscape is just basically dead. It’s a difficult condition to live in, to survive.”

Van der Kamp added, “There are no branches of trees on the ground. Everything is collected for food or fuel or animal food, almost nothing is left for the soil.”

Elon Musk dreams of colonizing Mars, but he can find in North Korea a dead landscape with warmer temperatures, more oxygen, and minuscule travel costs compared to the Red Planet. When communism collapses in North Korea, capitalism will terraform the country at an inestimably small fraction of the cost of terraforming Mars.

Based on its ability to support its human population and protect its environment, sparsely populated North Korea is one of the most overpopulated countries in the world.

Norberg explains what Malthus got wrong.

[H]e underestimated [humanity’s] ability to innovate, solve problems and change its ways when Enlightenment ideas and expanded freedoms gave people the opportunity to do so. As farmers got individual property rights, they then had an incentive to produce more. As borders were opened to international trade, regions began to specialize in the kinds of production suited to their soil, climate and skills. And agricultural technology improved to make use of these opportunities. Even though population grew rapidly, the supply of food grew more quickly.

The more specialization and exchange, the wealthier and better fed a growing population will be. In countries like North Korea, Venezuela, and Mao’s China, central planning leads to reduced specialization, which leads to starvation. As Matt Ridley explains in his book The Rational Optimist:

[I]f exchange becomes harder, [people] will reduce their specialisation, which can lead to a population crisis even without an increase in population. The Malthusian crisis comes not as a result of population growth directly, but because of decreasing specialisation. Increasing self-sufficiency is the very signature of a civilisation under stress, the definition of a falling standard of living.

Ridley explains that embracing specialization increases human ingenuity and increases the possibility that more people “can live upon the planet in improving health, food security and life expectancy and that this is compatible with cleaner air, increasing forest cover and some booming populations of elephants.”

In short, Ridley writes, “Embracing dynamism means opening your mind to the possibility of posterity making a better world rather than preventing a worse one.”

In their book, Empty Planet: The Shock of Global Population Decline, Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson have startling facts for those who believe the population will continue to explode.

No, we are not going to keep adding bodies until the world is groaning at the weight of eleven billion of us and more; nine billion is probably closer to the truth, before the population starts to decline. No, fertility rates are not astronomically high in developing countries; many of them are at or below replacement rate. No, Africa is not a chronically impoverished continent doomed to forever grow its population while lacking the resources to sustain it; the continent is dynamic, its economies are in flux, and birth rates are falling rapidly. No, African Americans and Latino Americans are not overwhelming white America with their higher fertility rates. The fertility rates of all three groups have essentially converged.

Looking at current trends and expecting them to continue is what Hans Rosling calls “the straight line instinct.” That instinct often leads to false conclusions.

View Our World in Data: Annual world population growth rate (1950-2100)

Rosling explains why critics of the Gates Foundation’s efforts to save children are dead wrong.

“Saving poor children just increases the population” sounds correct, but the opposite is true. Delaying the escape from extreme poverty just increases the population. Every generation kept in extreme poverty will produce an even larger next generation. The only proven method for curbing population growth is to eradicate extreme poverty and give people better lives.

With better lives, Rosling writes,

parents then have chosen for themselves to have fewer children. This transformation has happened across the world but it has never happened without lowering child mortality.

In the past 20 years, “the proportion of the world population living in extreme poverty” has fallen by half. Rosling adds that already the “majority of the world population live in middle-income countries.”

When feverish dreams of doom are used to justify controlling the lives of others, restricting personal and economic freedom, expect more poverty and environmental degradation with real overpopulation like that of North Korea. It is capitalism and freedom that lift humanity out of poverty, vanquish overpopulation, and offer a sustainable future.

Are the Woke the New Pharisees?

I remember a 10-year-old girl in school who came home one day proudly wearing a big button that declared, “I’m for sharing.” But when she starting munching on a candy bar, her dad asked her if he could have a bite. She said, “No. It’s mine!” And he said, “Well, then stop wearing a button that says ‘I’m for sharing’ when you really aren’t.”

The left’s reaction to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sending 50 illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard and Gov. Greg Abbott sending many more to Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence in Washington, D. C. has exposed the hypocrisy of those who advocate for open border policies.

U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R, Florida) says the left is having a “collective political meltdown.” A reaction they did not have when illegal immigrants were being sent to various other states—often without prior notice.

As Ron DeSantis declared: “In Florida, we take what is happening at the southern border seriously. We are not a sanctuary state, and we will gladly facilitate the transport of illegal immigrants to sanctuary jurisdictions.”

There is a sign at Martha’s Vineyard, which declares in part “We stand with IMMIGRANTS, with REFUGEES, with INDIGENOUS PEOPLES….All Are Welcome Here, hate has no business here.” [emphasis in the original]

Is it not hypocrisy to claim to be a “sanctuary” when you really don’t mean it? Many “compassionate” liberals on the island freaked out about the 50 illegals coming there.

The UK Daily Mail observed: “DeSantis accused critics of his move to fly migrants to Martha’s Vineyard of ‘virtue signaling’, saying their concern for the welfare of the migrants was a ‘fraud’. He said: ‘The minute even a small fraction of what those border towns deal with every day is brought to their front door, they go berserk, and they’re so upset that this is happening.’”

The illegal immigrants were deported within a day of arriving at Martha’s Vineyard. I heard one conservative on the radio mock, “They couldn’t have those ‘peasants’ come into the Vineyard.”

The Oxford Languages on-line dictionary defines “virtue signaling” this way: “The action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one’s good character or the moral correctness of one’s position on a particular issue.”

Those who are familiar with the Gospels know that Jesus Christ often had clashes with the religious leaders of His day, including the Pharisees. He often chewed them out because what they did was not sincere. It was just for show.

For example, Jesus said: “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.”

He applied this to giving, to fasting, to praying. For instance, here’s what He said about giving: “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.”

Jesus said this is how we should donate instead: “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”

The Pharisees were the virtue signalers of their day. The Woke crowd are in effect the Pharisees of our day. They like to be regarded as the compassionate ones, without any of the inconvenience actual compassion requires.

Dr. D. James Kennedy once noted that “a hypocrite is someone who is not himself on Sunday.”

But, of course, hypocrisy is not reserved for church members.

The founders of America were concerned about hypocrisy.

Alexander Hamilton declared, “Til the millennium [when Jesus reigns on earth] comes, in spite of all our boasted light and purification, hypocrisy and treachery will continue to be the most successful commodities in the political market.”

In our day, we are seeing no end of hypocrisy. As one critic noted: “Over 4.9 million illegals entered the United States during Joe Biden’s first 18 months in office via the open southern US border. But send 50 illegal immigrants to an exclusive liberal enclave? That is a humanitarian crisis!”

At the very least the ritzy hotspot for the left should tear down that “I’m for sharing”-type sign, welcoming all. It’s just their Pharisaical way of saying they care, when they apparently don’t.

If Biden closed the border, this would not be happening. As DeSantis noted, “At the end of the day, this is a massive policy failure by the president. A massive and intentional policy that is causing a huge amount of damage all across the country, and it is all rooted in a failure to take care that the laws are faithfully executed and to fulfill his oath of office.”

Hypocrisy, thy name is Woke.

Scientists and Doctors are Talking Through Their Hats on Abortion

Many of the world’s leading journals are condemning the US Supreme Court’s decision to scrap Roe v. Wade.


On June 24 the US Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade and declared that there was no right to abortion in the American Constitution. Ever since, the world’s leading scientific and medical journals have been campaigning not just against the ruling, but against the Supreme Court itself.

How have scientists and doctors suddenly become experts on ethics, law, politics, and philosophy? These are fields in which the scientific method is irrelevant. A doctor may declare that the Supreme Court’s decision is immoral. How can such a statement be proved with an experiment? How could such an experiment be replicated?

The core issue in the debate over abortion was not settled by Dobbs: it is whether the foetus in the womb of the mother is a human being or not. No scientist can settle the question one way or another.

This obvious rejoinder to the rivers of anti-Dobbs and pro-abortion sentiment flowing through these learned journals, however, is simply being ignored – that the foetus is a human being and that abortion destroys a human life. As an article in MercatorNet pointed out last week, 1,000,000,000 (one billion) human lives are aborted every 20 years or so (according to a study in The Lancet). A doctor who does not think that this is a burning ethical issue should have his registration revoked.

The latest contribution to the flood of pro-abortion propaganda comes in The New England Journal of Medicine, which may be most influential medical journal in the world. In an opinion article yesterday, Matthew K. Wynia, of the University of Colorado, argued that doctors should engage in a campaign of civil disobedience as a protest against Dobbs.

Incredibly, Dr Wynia enlists the civil rights icon, Dr Martin Luther King Jr, and the Christian philosopher and theologian, St Augustine, to support his argument. “An unjust law is no law at all,” said Augustine. True enough, but what special insight qualifies doctors to determine whether an abortion ban is unjust?

Indeed, history suggests doctors have often been on the wrong side on ethical matters – as Dr Wynia acknowledges:

“Historically, physicians have rarely been radical, and most have conformed with bad laws and policies, even horrific ones — such as those authorizing forced-sterilization programs in the United States and Nazi Germany, the use of psychiatric hospitals as political prisons in the Soviet Union, and police brutality under apartheid in South Africa. Too often, organized medicine has failed to fulfill its duty to protect patients when doing so required acting against state authority.”

Why is the opposition of the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Physicians and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists – all of whom Dr Wynia cites – any different? If doctors have normally supported the status quo, shouldn’t we expect them to support the status quo on abortion – especially when they profit from it?

At the moment, science is experiencing a crisis of credibility. Peer review is under attack almost as much as Dobbs; so many experiments are never corroborated that talk of a “reproducibility crisis” is common in science journals. And most astonishing of all is the claim by an eminent scholar, John P. Ioannides, that “There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false.” Most! His dramatic assertion has yet to be refuted.

This is not to say that Science, with a capital S, is false. Research papers which have been were submitted to rigorous peer review and have been replicated are science. How often does that happen with “reproductive health services”? Not as often as the public thinks. And it is certainly not the case with self-interested complaints about the constitutional reasoning of Dobbs and the morality of abortion.

The arguments put forward by the best medical journals are very similar to those marshalled by every interest group which has been defeated in court – my cause is a positive good; my cause is a social good; my cause is supported by the Establishment; and Armageddon looms if my cause is ignored.

They were precisely the arguments used by the South – and Southern doctors – to justify slavery in the 19th century.

In 1836 a representative from South Carolina, James Henry Hammond, rose in Congress to defend slavery. He said:

“Slavery is said to be an evil… But it is no evil. On the contrary, I believe it to be the greatest of all the great blessings which a kind Providence has bestowed upon our glorious region… As a class, I say it boldly; there is not a happier, more contented race upon the face of the earth… Lightly tasked, well clothed, well fed—far better than the free laborers of any country in the world … their lives and persons protected by the law, all their sufferings alleviated by the kindest and most interested care…. Sir, I do firmly believe that domestic slavery regulated as ours is produces the highest toned, the purest, best organization of society that has ever existed on the face of the earth.”

Today, we can only read such words with horror. They are evidence of the moral blindness which strikes men who defend their own interests with every weapon they can lay their hands on. Two hundred years ago, the issue was defending slavery; today, it is defending abortion.

This week I attended a Team Away Day from my place of work.  It was one of those events which attempts to bond strangers together.  We had ice-breakers, games, and then a buffet; we did craft and a ‘mindfulness’ exercise in the afternoon slot, before finally listening to a talk about Equality and Diversity in the workplace.    We also had a minute’s silence to remember Queen Elizabeth II who had recently died.

It was a strange correlation to the day.  I came away feeling somewhat ‘groomed’ before being plied with guilt at the end of the day, for my lack of awareness towards my fellow countryman.

However, the announcement on Thursday, 8th September, 2022 of the death of Queen Elizabeth II has come as no surprise to me.

At 96 years of age, a long and relatively health filled life, cannot exist forever

Out of a respect for her passing some shops and local businesses in my area, which is 200 miles from London, have a portrait of Queen Elizabeth in their window and my local corporate supermarket, ‘Tesco’s’ is now playing classical music, instead of Jay Z, in the background whilst you quietly shop and pay alone at your unfriendly self-service checkout.   Aside from this, there is little change to the atmosphere.  Life carries on.

However, in some governmental workplaces, orders have been given not to post derogatory comments on social media about the Queen, and in my own organization where I work, ‘counselling’ is being offered to those who may be affected by her passing.    Some staff are really bewildered by this offer of help.

You see, the last two and half years have been revelational for some, but not for all people.   A plan to divide, conquer, and subject people to the humiliation of being masked and cruelly isolated from each other, even during the sickness and death of loved ones, under the disguise of a pandemic, which has now been proven to be nefarious in its statistics, to say the least, has revealed to a greater extent the plans for a global reset, a new world order, and a plan to de-populate the world through whichever means possible.

For those prepared to go down the rabbit-hole, they are now much more aware, more than ever during any time in history, of how a few people who call themselves the elite class, which includes royalty, controls ever single system in our society for their own benefit, and not ours.

They are aware that in the background, there are people who orchestrate everything, and who hate God and humanity.  Front men do their bidding.  A false image of nobility, voluntary work and caring for others veneers and glosses over the rotten core of the apple.

During my life I have always instinctively known this.  As a child it was always strangely uncomfortable to me to have to stand and pay homage to an anthem whose words honoured a queen and not a country or God.

Back then, the hymn “I vow to thee my country” would have been a more suitable and humble offering in my opinion.

The horrendous mistakes and fear mongering during the past two and a half years have been conveniently swept under the carpet now that a sense of patriotism is attempting to re-install itself.   Suddenly, we all need to come together.   It is like a game of mental Tai-Chi.

I don’t personally believe that after the funeral the acceptance of the Prince of Wales who is now King Charles III, will work.   Similarly, pushing an equality and diversity agenda along with gender issues is still creating division rather than any type of unity.   Many people are also waking up to how these issues are being used against us all.   They know they are being continually ‘played’.   They know they have had enough.

The mourning for the Queen, which I believe is much more evident in London than the rest of the country, is not comparable to the one person who really did change the image of the monarchy, and whose legacy will not quietly vanish or go away.

 Diana – The Princess of Wales.

The grief and the memory of Diana’s death in my country was quite different to the one we are experiencing now.   It was announced 25 years ago on 31st August, 1997.

Her age and the incident itself meant more people identified with the sadness of losing someone.   There was a genuine grief and a shock across the whole of the country.   I understood the grief that others were visibly displaying just about everywhere.

However, Diana was also no angel, but people related much more readily with her vulnerability and her humanity than any other royal they believed they knew.

She stood apart from the rest, not just with her beauty, but by the admission of her infidelity and eating disorders, due to the rejection she had always experienced.   Many people identified with her and felt they knew her more personally which I feel explained the overwhelming sadness which was experienced back then.

There was also a lot of suspicion around the details of her death which she even foresaw and predicted herself.

During those days, there was also much anger towards the monarchy, who made no public announcements to comfort people, did not fly the flag at half mast, and showed little to no acknowledgement about her passing until they were advised to.

Similarly, during the last two and a half years there have been no public messages of comfort or re-assurance from the Church or the Monarchy other than to promote a vaccination.  It is reported that the Queen thought those who did not want to be vaccinated were ‘selfish’.   The doors of the churches were also firmly closed.

The country, in my view, has survived on the humanity of ordinary people who have also attempted to care for each other whilst ever effort has been made to divide, isolate, and conquer them.

Nothing is as it Seems

The UK is still divided and it is not united in grieving for the Queen which is being fashionably reported throughout mainstream media.

The history which we were once proud of and which certainly should not be eradicated, was built upon much more solid values and a decency which supersedes our present-day values.   It would be nice to hold on to these images and pretend things are as they were, but they are not.

To date, I have not listened or watched any coverage that our mainstream media is portraying towards the monarchy.  I am aware that beyond every image is another story.

The Queen has a very respectable image for many people, but these days I can only go on what I physically see and experience for myself.

My disappointment is in the loss of our free speech, the demise of decency and values, and the total destruction of all we hold dear, including the attacks on our children.   Those are issues worth grieving and fighting for.

Let us never erase history or forget it.   The Good and the Bad are important lessons.

The last two and a half years should have revealed to everyone how we are disrespected and hated.   Children and Adults died completely alone.   Dedicated nurses were threatened and persecuted with the loss of a job for not being vaccinated.  People were blackmailed and bribed into medical interventions which have now been proven to not be at all safe.  Many people have died and have been injured.

This Royal family have not been a rock, a comfort or a watchman or spokesperson on my behalf as currently being depicted through our mainstream media.     It will be a time in history I will not forget.

May God Save us All……..

The Queen: People who refuse vaccine should think of others, rather than themselves (telegraph.co.uk)

Who is Benny Ganz? His Words and Thoughts.

The main speaker on the final day of the ICT World Summit on Counterterrorism in Herzliya on 15 September 2022 was Israel’s Defense Minister, Benny Ganz.

Ganz, a former IDF Chief of Staff, led the country militarily. As a budding future Prime Minister, it is important to know what he thinks and how he would lead the country politically.

In his address he reviewed Israel’s many security arenas claiming that the south is quiet due to Israel’s tough reaction to the Islamic Jihad imposed violence while maintaining the civilian humanitarian needs in Gaza.

The fact that a non-descript terror group was able to launch over a thousand rockets into Israel while developing attack cells in the West Bank under the security cover of the Palestinian Authority was a threat that Israel could not ignore. And so, Israel responded in force in both locations.

Hamas, Ganz said, knows our strength and they increasingly knew the economic and painful price they would pay if they intervened. So, they stayed out of the fight and Israel opened the border to assist Gazans needs, including employment in Israel.

To the east in Syria, Ganz said, Israel continues to curb the transportation and transfer of Iranian weaponry. To the north, Ganz warned Hezbollah chief, Hassan Nasrallah, that Lebanon will pay a heavy price if his terror group attacks Israel’s Karish offshore natural gas rig and sabotages the ongoing US-mediated maritime talks between Israel and Lebanon.

Ganz said ominously that if Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah wants to disrupt the ongoing talks, “he’s welcome to do so, but the price will be Lebanon.”

Ganz said there will be two rigs in the Mediterranean. One Israeli, the other Lebanese. The question, he said, was if there will be an escalation of violence in between.

“We are willing to make an agreement with Lebanon and ready to produce, but if Nasrallah wants to stop this cooperation the first visit we make will be in Lebanon. We are prepared to protect our assets.”

Referring to Judea & Samaria as “the West Bank,” Ganz said this area is more complex. “We see the terror coming from there. Every night we see IDF operations and arrests. It’s always challenging when we go and knock on doors to arrest terrorists,” referring to the safety of soldiers and Israel’s duty not to harm civilians.

He paused to pay tribute to Major Bar Falah who will killed in the process of arresting two Palestinian terrorists the previous day.

Ganz went on, “Counter-terrorism is an integral part of achieving Israel’s strategic objectives. We saw it in Turkey when we, together with the Turks, disrupted several Iranian efforts to hit Israelis in Turkey.”

Naming some of the main challenges facing Israel, Ganz listed Iran, relations with the Palestinian Authority, increasing support for Israel in the international arena, and the development of the Negev and Galilee.

“Iran is a threat to Israel, but Iran is also a world and regional challenge. Who would have thought that Iran would be supplying Russia with technological weapons like drones which Russia is using in Ukraine.”

“Iran’s needs to maintain its regime, and to do this they must maintain instability externally while trying to maintain stability domestically.  Stability in the Middle East is against Iranian interests. That is why it is vitally important for us to widen close connections with neighboring countries.”

Regarding the Iran nuclear deal, Gaza said what is needed is a longer, stronger, and broader deal, not one that rewards Iran with $1B to build up its ballistic capabilities. To counter this, Israel needs to build regional structures and create an anytime, anywhere, operational readiness without any pause.

“We continue to stockpile weaponry. Even if it takes five years, we must take no time out in the process,” referring to political or economic restraints.

For the foreseeable future, there is no choice but to compete with Iran.

Turning to the United States from a military perspective, Ganz said that joining CENTCOM was nothing less than dramatic. “We benefit from the combined strength of Israel and the United States.”

Turning to the Palestinian issue, Ganz said he envisioned what he called a “two-entity situation” in which each concentrate on its own needs and economy. He did not elaborate.

Benny Ganz claimed that he represents where Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Rabin meet. Again, he did not elaborate on how it expresses itself save to say that his vision is based on the premise that” no one is going anywhere.”

Referring to his meetings with Mahmoud Abbas, Ganz claimed that he reviewed a Palestinian horizon with him.  “I couldn’t expect to find someone as moderate as him,” he said of his meetings with the PA leader in which they discussed how to make a political, economic, and a secure future possible.

He added,

“You can’t lecture me about security. We need wider international support to strengthen our situation with a wider world. We are strong and we are also right. We must improve our public diplomacy, to strengthen our connection with Jews around the world. We must reach out to all strands of Judaism in the American Jewish community.”

Turning to domestic issues, Ganz said,

“in Arab towns, their problems are our problems. We must ensure law and order, fight crime, develop their education ad infrastructure. Most Arab citizens are good citizens. My own doctor is from Kfar Kassam. In Arab towns, people are frightened to go out at night. We need to restore law and order.”

Ganz took a swipe at Benjamin Netanyahu accusing him of causing a rift in Israeli society and deepening it.

Ganz said he respected the Israeli ultra-Orthodox deep faith while asking them to be less isolated from Israeli society and become contributing citizens.

Addressing political problems, he said Israel needs government stability,

“I never thought we would have five elections in four years. Israel strategic objectives must include a responsible government.”

Addressing the death of Israel soldiers such as Major Falah and the AJ journalist embedded with Palestinian gunmen, Ganz said the IDF needs to relook at the order of opening fire.

“We try as much as possible to reduce harm to civilians, but we must also re-examine the need to protect our own soldiers”.

About the American call for an investigation into the death of Shireen Abu Akleh, Ganz said,

“Over a hundred journalists all over the world were hit in enemy engagements with US forces, and nobody opened investigations.”

In response to a question about Israel’s security future, Ganz replied,

“I strive for peace with the Palestinians, but I look reality in the eye. As I strive for peace, I know there is no guarantee, but we have our own resilience and moral strength as a people. We are setting the foundations of collaboration with surrounding countries which may take five years or more to come to fruition.”

NOTE: This report is not published to be an endorsement of Benny Ganz or his political party, but to put on record his own words and thoughts at an important global conference.

Tragedy on Martha’s Vineyard

Good day Joey Kahn,

It must be a busy time for you Kahny at your desk as executive editor of your tabloid, The NY Times. It seems there is a bit of an illegal immigration crisis over at Martha’s Vineyard, stemming from some issue at the southern border? I know Kahny, it is a shock to me too, as this is the first I have heard of it. You must feel the same, as I haven’t seen ANY coverage of this nearly 2 year humanitarian crisis until just recently in your tabloid.

We need to point out the fact that these semi-fascists (sort of like being a little pregnant), MAGA’s and even the extremely rare Ultra-MAGA’s are at it again—reeking havoc. Well at least that is what Joey Robinette, and his installed administration are saying. Who would ever doubt Ole Joe, the great unifier. Well, our radical right wing friends have a different spin on it altogether. Let’s take a look , but first a little look back at events at the Vineyard.

A Little Vineyard History

It seems Martha’s Vineyard is an exclusive enclave for many of the liberal elite to vacation on. Some even have multimillion dollar estates, like Barack Hussein and his partner Michael—more on that power couple later.

Teddy the Liberal Lion

It seems, Martha’s Vineyard and a tiny island just off it, Chappaquiddick , made headlines back in 1969. It was back then that Kennedy scion, Teddy (the liberal lion), really put the Vineyard on the map. If you recall, a tragic accident occurred that night for which Teddy was minutely involved, simply a tragic accident nothing more, as all liberals recall.

That is not what our friends across the aisle say though, quite the contrary. It seems the married Teddy (devout Catholic), left an alcohol fueled get together with a young single staffer, Mary Jo Kopechne. As Teddy headed to a secluded beach, (probably to finish up some official paperwork), he said he got lost going to the ferry with Mary Jo, even though he had been coming here for years, he then drove off a small bridge into the water. After freeing himself and leaving Mary Jo, he then went back to the party house and after conferring with staffer’s, Ole Teddy was able to swim the channel (some 500 feet) to the mainland and go back to his hotel—while Mary Jo was still in the car, albeit under water.

Well, after only 12 hours (after speaking to lawyers and advisors), the highly moral, devout Catholic Teddy decided to call police and report the accident. He received a slap on the wrist and insurance paid a modest sum to the family…..seems fair, don’t ya think Kahny? I understand that some of these same police now work for the Gestapo, sorry I mean the FBI, and they were assigned to investigate Hunter Biden.

Conservatives say, this incident sets the stage for the latest example of entitled, elitist liberals and the hypocritical double standard that they seem to be afforded. Like the fact that the southern border has basically been wide open since the vegetable was installed in the White House, which has resulted in border states being inundated with illegals. Repeated calls to the White House for a plan or assistance from state representatives have gone unheeded.

The Border Czar to the Rescue

They even appointed the outrageously incompetent Heels Up Harris as the Border Czar. Was the plan to have her go there and giggle hysterically, like a village idiot and drive them back to Mexico? Conservatives ask, besides sampling various pastries and traveling the world on the taxpayer dime—what has this word salad, cackling buffoon accomplished as the “Border Czar,” or anything else for that matter?

This Should Get Their Attention

Well, it seems all that needed to be done was deliver 50 illegals to the playground of the out of touch liberals to get some action. Even you started giving coverage to this over at your tabloid Pravda, Kahny. Bravo champ!

It seems these 50 illegals have caused a “humanitarian Crisis” on the island. Imagine, an island that houses roughly 20,000 year round and over 100,000 during the summer, is having a “CRISIS,” housing FIFTY of the downtrodden, that they have such compassion for (as long as it is somewhere far away apparently). Sources say celebrities were screaming at their minimum wage help to rip those—“we welcome all” signs off the front lawn, before they would release the hounds on them.

The Commander Speaks

They even woke up Joey Talibiden in between his afternoon naps to make a statement. He was not happy as this cut into his cartoon watching time, and pudding pops,
screaming, that it is un-American, and it is playing politics with human lives—he vowed action. They didn’t have time to provide the blood red backdrop, and put the little mustache on Joey.

Really, Joey Robinette

Conservatives want to know, exactly how detracted from reality is Lyin’ Biden and his handlers. They point out after some estimates as high as 4,900,000 illegals have crossed the southern border, since this treasonous incompetent has been installed in office—and he is now outraged over 50 illegals and a humanitarian crisis in Martha’s Vineyard. I guess Hussein was not happy about this and got on the horn to the very accommodating Joey. He wanted to stay on Hussein’s good side for next years birthday bash (the last one was of course maskless during the plandemic—oh, that privileged Hussein).

Well anyway, in less than 24 hours these poor downtrodden lost souls were being shipped off this land of hypocritical frauds. I mean how are these out of touch celebrities going to enjoy their Dom Perignon, pheasant under glass and truffles—knowing “these people” are on their island. Word is as soon as the last illegal was shipped off, a public service message went out that it was safe to put the welcome all signs back out on the lawn. I understand Oprah had tears in her eyes as they stuffed the last illegal in the van leaving the island—what a sincere, loving, down to earth individual she is.

Finally Journalistic Integrity

Well, it accomplished one thing Kahny. It got your tabloid to actually print SOMETHING, ANYTHING about illegal immigration. See, that journalism degree is finally coming in handy, your folks must be so proud.

One last thing, It seems Gavin Newsom is so outraged he wants these southern border governors charged with kidnapping and removed from office. Great idea! But wait a minute, the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT has been flying these illegals in the dead of the night throughout the country since the houseplant was installed. That would mean, Talibiden (installed puppet), Heels Up Harris (Border Czar/ pastry aficionado), and Alejandro Mayorkas (Daddy Warbucks), would have to be removed. Ya know Kahny, for the first time I have to agree with that narcissistic, incompetent Newsom…….let’s start charging them!

Sincerely,

Chris Cirino
