The Abyss Beyond Genocide: Eradication of Humanity Itself

The killing of our offspring is far worse than genocide.


The word “genocide” is rooted in the Shoah. A Polish Jew named Raphael Lemkin (1900-1959) first used it in 1944 as a way to describe the systematic murder of European Jewry by the National Socialists.

Lemkin’s concept of the slaughter of a people — although greatly informed by the Armenian Genocide during the First World War — later underpinned the prosecution of Nazi wartime officials at Nuremberg in the early postwar period. The Shoah, indeed genocide in general, is a crime so heinous and big that it a new term was required to name it.

Even today, although we know that “genocide” means the attempt to erase an ethnic, racial, religious, or other group from the face of the earth, we struggle to understand the viciousness of those who carried out the Shoah, the most hateful genocide. By the same measure, we struggle to understand those who, since then, have continued to seek the extermination of their fellow human beings.

In this, we share an affinity with Raphael Lemkin. What is often forgotten about Lemkin is that he spent his life after World War II trying to come to grips with the scope of the crime he had uncovered.

Perennial scourge

The 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide was an important part of Lemkin’s legacy, to be sure. But Lemkin seemed to understand that the political machinery of the world was lagging far behind the ingenuity which humans were deploying in terrorising one another. There is just too much industrial-scale murder in the world for any political institution to contain. (This is especially true since governments themselves are almost always the authors of genocides.)

And “genocide” can be applied retroactively, too. Today one often hears the term used to describe the campaigns carried out against native peoples in North and South America, or even the putting to the sword of Carthaginians by Roman invaders in 146 BC. Lemkin didn’t include either of these under the category of genocide, or any of the other examples from history of one people’s massacring another, but he did understand that wherever there are weak and vulnerable people, there will always be those who will try to prey upon them.

It was with Raphael Lemkin and his extraordinarily brave and prescient work in mind that I listened recently to a speech given by Shoah survivor Vera Sharav. Speaking on the seventy-fifth anniversary of the enacting of the Nuremberg Code (against forced human experimentation of any kind), Sharav issued this clarion warning:

The real viral disease that infected Nazi Germany is Eugenics. Eugenics is the elitist ideology at the root of all genocides. [… Eugenicists] legitimize discrimination, apartheid, sterilization, euthanasia, and genocide. The Nazis called it “ethnic cleansing” — for the protection of the gene pool.

Medicine was perverted from its healing mission & was weaponized. First, it was to control reproduction through forced sterilization; then it was to eliminate those deemed to be “sub-human” — Untermenschen.

The first victims of medical murder were 1,000 German disabled infants and toddlers. This murderous operation was expanded to an estimated 10,000 children up to age 17. The next victims were the mentally ill; they were followed by the elderly in nursing homes. All of these human beings were condemned as “worthless eaters”.

[… D]esignated hospitals became killing stations where various extermination methods were tested — including Zy[k]lon B — the gas that was used in the death camps.

Sharav was speaking about the current covid- and vaccine-related conscience crisis in the world, but I think much of what she said can be understood to apply to a very different kind of dehumanisation campaign: abortion. At the same time, Sharav’s powerful words highlighted for me an unease that I have increasingly been feeling over the extension of the word “genocide” to describe abortion, the biggest and most sustained slaughter in all the dark annals of human history.

Abortion, bigger than genocide, aimed at the human race itself

According to the Guttmacher Institute, roughly 121 million unintended pregnancies occurred worldwide each year between 2015 and 2019. Of these unintended pregnancies, 61 percent ended in abortion. This translates to 73 million abortions per year, and implies that in 13 years, there are 1 billion abortions. Another article from The Lancet in 2016, which is much more statistical, suggests that there are 1 billion abortions every 20 years, globally.

That means, in the 50 years since countries began legalising abortion, at least 2 billion preborn children (and, yes, sometimes just-born infants) have been dismembered by abortionists.

Some call this mass killing a genocide, but I am not so sure. What makes this different from the Shoah and other genocides is not a question of numbers. The dignity of human beings cannot be tallied up in numerals and tables. What makes the slaughter of the children different is the intent behind it.

Genocide is the deliberate targeting of a group because of some characteristic — real or imagined — which that group embodies and which the genocidal party would destroy. Jew, Armenian, kulak, Tutsi, intellectual, bourgeois, landlord — these and countless other attributes have been used as markers for those whom the genocidal seek to eliminate.

Abortion is not quite like this. True, in India, China, and many other places where male children are preferred over females, daughters are killed off in the womb at much higher rates than sons. “Gendercide” is the name often used to describe this targeted culling of a certain group of people. And in many countries around the world, Down Syndrome babies, and babies with other congenital conditions, have virtually disappeared. They have almost all been killed in utero, another example showing the deep eugenicist influence in the abortion trade.

But the above examples, while heart-breaking, remain the exception. In general, abortion is not performed because the child in the womb is female, or disabled, or of a certain ethnic group, or a member of a certain religious or social category. In general, babies are aborted because they are human beings, and young human beings are burdens which adult human beings do not wish to bear. The rationale behind abortion is humanity itself.

I do not know if even Raphael Lemkin saw this deeply into the genocidal abyss. I do not know if even Vera Sharav, Shoah survivor and tireless human rights campaigner, can frame in words the darkness which has erased perhaps two billion of our brothers and sisters from the human race, and done so for no reason but that they are human.

In struggling to fix a name to this unthinkable reality, I have begun to think of it as “sapiens eradication,” the attempt — soul by soul, mother by child — to do away with Homo sapiens in our entirety. This is not genocide. This is not killing this group, or that. This is the termination of our whole human family. The world waits for a new Raphael Lemkin to tell us what this horror is. Perhaps in naming it we will finally, as we do now with genocide, and in the name of all humanity, be able to mount a campaign against it.

A Californian Speaks out as Governor Ron DeSantis Sends 50 Illegals to Martha’s Vineyard

A reader who has a friend living in California sent us the below which was posted by Renee who is the Oklahoma Connecting Consciousness USA coordinator about Governor DeSantis who is doing very well in the Sunshine State and beyond.

Renee’s comments come as The Cape Cod Times’ Gwenn Friss in a September 14th, 2022 article titled Unexpected arrival: 50 migrants flown to Martha’s Vineyard, DeSantis takes credit reported,

A receptionist at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services looked up late Wednesday afternoon to find a group of 50 people – men, women and children – standing in the center’s parking lot.

[ … ]

The migrants thought to be from Venezuela were flown by a chartered aircraft from Florida and/or Texas.

Foxnews.com reported that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard as part of his “promise to drop off undocumented migrants in progressive states.”

Read the full article.

We pass it along as it is most interesting.

Pay Attention to Oklahoma!

Oklahoma is the only state where neither Obama nor Biden won even one county in the last election.

WHILE EVERYONE IS focusing on Arizona, Georgia, and Texas’ new laws, LOOK what Oklahoma has been doing!

Oklahoma has passed a law in the state to: “incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen”.

All the illegals literally scattered! HB 1804.

This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU. They said it would be a mistake. Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently Oklahoma passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal’s to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative, purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB 1102

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Few realize that several weeks ago, we again, passed a law declaring Oklahoma a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives joining Texas, Montana, and Utah as the only states (so far) to do so.

MORE STATES are now likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Carolina’s, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida.

Save your confederate money, folks, it appears the South is about to rise again! HJR 1003

Your federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. That’s a setback for criminals, and The Liberals didn’t like it, BUT… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, Oklahoma has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple, folks.

By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either. Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

And guess what… the people I’m sending this to, will send it on. Well, at least the ones who love and believe in freedom will! For those who have fought for it, freedom has a taste the protected will never know.

The New York Time’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Continues!

Good day Joey Kahn,

I hope today finds you well at your desk as the executive editor of the iconic tabloid, The NY Times. I see that Joey Robinette is stomping across swing states before the midterms, using his usual Kennedy like eloquence at the podium. I know you must be in awe, as I am Kahny. I see that his mastery of elocution is rubbing off on his press secretary KJ Pierre. She has also been knocking it out of the park with her lightning like responses during her daily Q&A’s. As usual those radical right wingers are having none of it, criticizing these oratory icons, at every chance they get. Let’s try and see where they come up with these outrageous claims of incompetence.

Biden’s Unifying (Satanic) Speech

Let’s start with that brilliant unifying speech a few weeks ago by Joey Robinette. Wow, ole Joe knocked it out of the park with that one—don’t ya think Kahny? Well those darn conservatives were besides themselves, trying to rain on little Joey’s parade.

Conservatives think that possibly Beijing Biden has lost what is left of his mentally addled brain. They felt that the backdrop of this satanic and divisive “unifying” speech—would be more appropriate at a Metallica or Ozzy Osborne concert. I mean with the blood red lighting, marines standing at their posts, behind the Supreme Houseplant-in-Chief. All that was missing was Chardonnay Pelosi flying around on her broom with a trail of smoke.

The Fourth Reich

Then there he was, his fist raised in the air—condemning MAGA’s 13 times in his 24 minute rant. All that was missing was the little mustache and armband. He already has the Gestapo with Merrick Garland; his Minster of propaganda with Mini-Me Pierre (though she is no Joseph Goebbels Psaki…..more on Mini-Me later); Stacey Abrams could fill in as Goering, and Heels Up Harris could fill in as Rudolf Hess— as he was useless to anyone, sort of like the Border Czar is in the present day.

Well, Mein Fuhrer Biden ranted about threats to Democracy, that these people who want to make America great again pose. I always thought that making America great again was a good thing Kahny? I guess I need to take a CRT correspondence course to really grasp what Bidenflation is talking about. Maybe I could attend a BLM (building larger mansions) rally; I just have to wait until a conservative is back in office for that. Apparently, there hasn’t been any racial injustices since Mein Fuhrer was installed. Or possibly, inflation has hit Georgie Soros’ pocketbook hard to fund these protests—we all have to make sacrifices during these inflationary times.

A Couple of Minor Details left Out

Conservatives point out one thing though. It seems Mein Fuhrer, failed to mention a couple of things about the state of the country. Namely, inflation crippling middle and lower class families, with credit card debt at record highs, and approximately 35% not able to buy the basic necessities. You know food, shelter, healthcare, gas—those pesky little things Mein Fuhrer failed to mention.

Gas still over 40% higher since the Fuhrer was installed. Even as he depletes our strategic petroleum reserve….which seems very practical. Which by the way, will stop right before the midterms, when you can then expect prices to go up again. Yep, the Fuhrer’s handlers sure had some lucky timing there, huh Kahny? Sort of like vaccine manufacturers withholding that they had a successful Covid vaccine, until just after the 2020 election—what a coincidence, simply amazing!

He also failed to mention the treasonous debacle and human travesty that is taking place on our southern border. Not too mention the calamitous amount of fentanyl coming across, killing our citizens; number one killer of of 18-45 year olds.

No News is Good News

You know Kahny I’ve been asking you for a while now, how come NONE of this is covered in your iconic tabloid Pravda? I know, I know, we need 24/7 coverage of the INSURRECTION and the Gestapo raid on Mar-a-lago; but maybe a blurb about this catastrophe at the border or rampant inflation. Maybe sneak it in next to the Earl Scribble paint job advertisement on page 46. You know to keep up with the journalistic integrity you and The Times are known for (wink, wink).

It’s Tough to Lie ALL the Time

It seems like Mini-Me Pierre needs more training from a true sociopath, namely Jenny Goebbels Psaki. The lies don’t seem to flow nearly as easy for this incompetent, who was hired for her gender, skin pigmentation, (just like our latest Supreme Court appointment and VP superstar), and her sexual orientation. As far as being qualified, well not so much. It seems she is unable to answer a direct question, she does (barely) have the ability to read a talking point from her huge propaganda binder……which she also uses as a booster seat while driving.

Nothing to See Here, Move Along

When asked why illegal immigrants are just allowed to walk freely across the border, her response was, “that is just not true.” Well that solves that—even if there are numerous videos contradicting her blatant LIES!

When asked how the ridiculously named Inflation Reduction Act is going to immediately help Americans who are struggling mightily now, her response was, “citizens can apply for federal aid on the purchase of solar panels and energy efficient windows.” I don’t know about you Kahny, but it’s going to be a tough sell, telling the family that they will have to substitute food on the kitchen table with solar panels. Maybe Mini-Me has a secret recipe for solar panels, something French, perhaps.

When she was again asked what they are doing to help Americans crippled by rampant inflation, her reply was, “this (installed) president has created a record number of jobs (most coming back after being let go during the plandemic), as we experience low unemployment numbers.” So, Conservatives want to know: when the bank comes to foreclose on your house, should people just tell them Bidenflation has created a record number of jobs; when you can not afford to purchase food for your family at the checkout counter, do you tell them about unemployment numbers; when you can’t afford baby formula (if you can get it), do you mention the deal you can get on solar panels; when your car dies, how do you purchase a new $65,000 electric vehicle? Do you just do what new Mother Petey Buttigieg suggests, when you currently can’t afford to fill up your car? Maybe we should just tape some of those discounted solar panels around the old car and hope for the best?

Party Like it’s 1999

Finally, let’s look at the celebration of the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, on the White House lawn by the puppet occupying the White House. Yes, the inept leader in his dollar store aviator sunglasses, actually celebrating his economic triumphs, while inflation actually ticked UP, the morning of his speech. At the same time, the stock market experienced its worst day since June of 2020–during the height of the Plandemic. We even had musical guests serenading us, as James Taylor (is he senile too?) entertaining us during this surreal, delusional display.

Delusional Old Nancy

Then we had Chardonnay Pelosi wetting herself again, as she showered Beijing Biden with vomitous praise. After her unhinged diatribe, she then had to remind the entire partisan cult, that this was indeed, “the time to applaud.” They immediately woke up and started to clap. Unnamed sources said Big Paulie Pelosi was absent as he was down the road with an unidentified female at a local tavern enjoying 2 for 1 drinks. See Kahny, inflation is even hitting the Pelosi’s, as they too have to stretch that dollar…… no word if Chardonnay will have to scale back on her $15 a pint gourmet ice cream.

Paging “Dr.” Jill

Finally, we have mentally addled Joey ranting and raving as usual, while stepping all over his jacket that he just placed on the ground. Where was his nurse, “Dr.” Jilly Bean, when you need her? Perhaps she was with her ex-husband, trying to make amends after her adulterous affair with devout Catholic Joey Robinette. Or perhaps there was a blue light special at Walmart on shower curtains, so she could add to her wardrobe ensemble.

Conservatives as well as some Democrats want to know how much further this corrupt, incompetent puppet and his treasonous cabal will detach from reality? Where does the line get drawn on this insanity, more than half of America wants to know? What if Joey Robinette comes out and says, ”the earth is flat”? Does Mini-Me Pierre come out the next day, and when questioned on this, say in response : “the president is very proud of his low unemployment numbers and MAGA is our greatest threat” (never mind those pesky Leaders in China, Iran, North Korea, and Russia.) But Mini-Me you never answered the question: “I’m sorry, we are out of time.”

The Propaganda Machine

Conservatives say, an integral part of this disastrous Twilight Zone of an installed administration, is your tabloid Pravda (NY Times), that provides minuscule or more often, NO coverage of this treasonous regime. I mean Kahny, didn’t those Ivy League schools you attended teach anything about journalistic integrity or self respect? You do have a conscience…..right Kahny? Or are you too enmeshed in the propaganda, CRT and the like; or maybe those deep pockets of your boss AG Sulzberger, sway your integrity meter all the way down to zero. Well at least you can buy an electric car with that payoff, even if you can’t honestly look yourself in the mirror Kahny.

Now, get back to work. We need more saturation coverage of the INSURRECTION, and the Gestapo raid on Mar-a-lago. We have to get peoples minds off of losing their homes, putting food on the table, and meeting everyday expenses, all those minor details. Is that what they teach in those Ivy League schools, deflection, omission and when that fails, just lie about the news? Very impressive. What is the Old Gray Lady’s mantra again…..oh yeah, “All the News That’s Fit to Print.” Now, that’s comedic gold right there, absolutely hilarious!

Mao’s Cultural Revolution Comes to America

The war on parents is escalating.  Here’s what’s happening on the battlefield:

A series of undercover videos exposed what school personnel are really up to, in their own words.

A private school director in New York City was caught on video admitting she misuses her position to sneak her left-wing political agenda into classrooms.  “I just keep trying to disrupt wherever I can,” she said. “And now that I’m in this position, I have so many opportunities to do that.”  She said she won’t allow Republican views to be expressed and trashed white boys as being horrible, awful people who are protected by capitalism.  Wow.

Also in New York City, a middle school teacher was recorded encouraging students to engage in political violence and throw bricks at people who hold opposite views.  She changed the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, so her class recites the idea America does not stand for liberty and justice for all, because black and brown people are excluded, they don’t get justice.  If that’s true, why did Breonna Taylor’s family get a $12 million settlement from Louisville?  The claim doesn’t make any sense.  It’s garbage.

An assistant principal of an elementary school in Greenwich, Connecticut won’t hire Catholic teachers or anybody over 30 because they’re too conservative.  He admitted to illegal age discrimination on video.  He said he has progressive teachers who are adept at delivering left-wing messages to students without being obvious about it.  “It’s subtle…. That’s how you get away with it,” he said.

Back in New York City, an assistant principal won’t hire teachers who believe in equality or a color-blind society.  They have to give the correct Woke responses to diversity, equity, and inclusion questions and toe the party line on anti-racism or they won’t be hired.  He would have fired a teacher who did not want to indoctrinate students with Black Lives Matter ideology, but the teacher quit first.  Kindergartners at the school celebrate gay pride month by reading stories about a boy who wants to be a mermaid and encouraging children to be anything they want to be, genderwise.  Transgender ideology becomes more explicit as the kids get older.

This is all in their own words and on tape, folks, there’s no denying it.  They’re coming for your kids, and it’s not just the east coast.

Indoctrination also starts in kindergarten in Portland, Oregon schools.  Kids are being taught the male-female gender binary is just a white colonizer construct and the ‘infinite gender spectrum’ is where it’s at.  Forget the 57 genders, the number of gender choices is now ‘infinite’.  Isn’t progress wonderful?  According to the curriculum, some girls can have penises and some boys can have vulvas.  This is not just the schools taking over the job of identity formation from parents, the agenda goes deeper than that.  After six years of identity indoctrination, fifth-graders are asked to make Chinese youth league-style promises to carry on the revolution.  They are asked to pledge to learn more about the ideology and the history of black trans women.  They pledge to use correct pronouns.  They pledge to watch films and shows with LGBTQ characters and, most importantly, they pledge to become leaders in their school on these issues.  As we’ve seen in other contexts, the Left is hell-bent on turning students into 24/7 left-wing activists.  Mao’s Cultural Revolution lives, and anyone who gets in the way will be sent to the countryside, figuratively speaking, to learn from the peasants and be reeducated.

L.A. is in pretty much the same boat with “trans justice” now the linchpin of instruction.  But field reports are pouring in from everywhere:

A high school teacher in California keeps a ‘queer library’ in her classroom with books about orgies, kinks, fetishes, and bondage.

Schools in one Florida county are expelling students if their parents object to having them fill out a gender identity questionnaire.

Schools in one Pennsylvania county are encouraging boys to wear dresses.

There are more reports from all over the country about mandatory drag showsWoke math classes that destroy competency, indoctrination starting at age 3snitching on family and friends for microaggressions, expelling students for misgendering classmates, and more.  There are so many reports, I can’t keep up, anymore.

The war is on.  They’re coming for your kids.  Get active or get steamrolled.  Get involved before your kids become unrecognizable to you and turn on you, like the good little commies they are being trained to be.  Do nothing and you’ll just have to hope they don’t come after you with a machine gun, like in Pol Pot’s Killing Fields, because that’s what communists eventually do.

I only discussed teachers and administrators today.  The War on Parents is coming from several directions.  Tomorrow, I will tell you about some of those.

Republicans Aren’t Going to Save America, It’s Up To US!

“Voters, whatever their political views, should rise up against politicians who want to dilute the Bill of Rights to perpetuate their tenure in office.” — Ted Olson, former Solicitor General

“When once a Republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.” —  Thomas Jefferson

“War is when the government tells you who the bad guy is. Revolution is when you decide that for yourself.” — Benjamin Franklin

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”— James Madison, Federalist 47, 1788


Mark Twain tells us, “The only difference between reality and fiction is that fiction needs to be credible.”  Had an author written what has happened to America just over the last six years, no one would believe it.  The yarn would be just too far out to have any credence whatsoever.  But we’re living it!

In his recent speech from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, our illegitimate dementia ridden president walked to the podium holding hands with his wife.  I don’t recall any other president’s wife doing such.  Maybe she didn’t want him to veer off from his intended destination.

Jonathan Turley commented that the backdrop of Uncle Joe’s speech looked like he was yammering at us from Dante’s Inferno.  And the two Marines…when the military is supposed to be apolitical.  However, with General Mark Milley, who many consider a traitor, Chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, we can disabuse ourselves of their impartiality.

Joshua Charles tweeted that Biden’s speech was the single most toxic, inflammatory and hypocritical speech by an American President he was aware of.  I fully agree.

Democracy vs. Republic

Biden extolled the wonders of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence and then told us that equality and democracy are under attack.

First and foremost, we are not a democracy, we are a Representative Republic. There is a massive difference, and I would be absolutely thrilled if “democracy” was actually under attack.  Why?  Because it is mob rule, because it is never mentioned in either of our founding documents, because it is a treacherous form of government.

Our founders knew that in its pure form democracy is ultimately dangerous.  The writings and sermons from our founding era are replete with warnings of this fact:

  • Alexander Hamilton wrote, “If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship.”
  • Thomas Jefferson lamented that “a democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.”
  • James Madison argued that democracies “have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
  • John Adams concluded that democracy “never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Yet, Joseph Biden and his democrat comrades all call us a democracy, and the same goes for nearly all but a handful of republicans.

More democracy they scream!  Even calling for the abolition of some of our founders’ safety mechanisms.  They propose eliminating the Electoral College and blocking the confirmation of “unpopular” Supreme Court Justices.  We would never have had Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas.  They also want to tie representation in the U.S. Senate to state populations, rather than equal representation. And we know where that would lead.

Most of our institutions were designed to thwart the malevolent and pernicious effects of too much democracy and are purposely designed to be anti-democratic.  They are essential safeguards for individual liberty, something today’s comrades in both parties would love to do away with as their goals are collectivism, i.e., Marxism.

Psychological Projection

Our illegitimate president continued by saying, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”  The Marxist approach taught by Hillary Clinton’s hero, Saul Alinsky … blame your enemy for what you yourself are doing.

Biden continued by targeting constitutional conservatives who supported Donald Trump.

Biden continued, “Let me speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face, about the power we have in our own hands to meet these threats.  Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

Oh yeah Joe?  You targeted your opposition just like any good totalitarian dictator would do, and you incited violence by saying any true constitutionalist is a threat to America!

Biden’s puppeteers plan a crackdown on his political opponents by the security state, i.e, the FBI, which has become, let’s face it…America’s Sturmabteilung, (Storm Troopers), also known as “Brown Shirts.”

In her latest substack article, Sidney Powell commented, “The left is raiding, scaring, silencing, intimidating and bankrupting the opposition.”  And yes, according to Steve Bannon and Harmeet Dillon it’s true, 35 to 50 FBI raids occurred on senior MAGA/Trump allies.

The speech was violent, demonstrably evil, and attacked more than half of the American electorate.  Shades of 1861 come to mind where 700,000 Americans died at the hands of their fellow citizens.

Silent Republicans

Where are the Republicans as a party?  Only a handful stand firm against the onslaught of Stalinist tactics.

Where is the outcry over Biden’s encouragement of violence against fellow Americans?

Where is the outcry about the January 6th participants languishing in prison for over 20 months?

Where is the outcry over the hundreds of thousands who have died or been disabled by the mRNA clot shots? There are now over 900 dead athletes and 1323 athlete cardiac arrests.

Where is the outcry over the sieve at the southern border?  Biden took an oath to defend this country against invasion, yet he invites it.

Where is the outcry over the horrid targeting of Trump supporters in Biden’s vile speech?

Where is the outcry over the fraudulently named Inflation Reduction Act which does not reduce spending but creates more climate change laws and restrictions?

Where is the outcry over the high prices of food, gasoline, and everyday essentials?

Where is the outcry over military prosecutors negotiating a plea deal with 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

Where is the outcry over Iran getting billions of dollars (again) before Congress can even review the new nuclear deal?

And why have we not heard one Republican criticize Biden’s lawmaking Executive Orders when that function belongs only to Congress?

There is so much more.

Why do the Republicans sit on their hands and never raise their voices?  Why?  Because most of them hated Trump just as much as the Dems did.

While this fascist regime shreds our Constitution, there is silence from the Republican Party.

They are silent because they are in bed with the left.  Have you ever seen them fight like the Democrat Party fights when they’re not in power?  The Republican Party guarantees all Democrat nominees will be voted into power, whereas the Democrat Party fights tooth and nail to keep true patriotic Americans from any seats of power.  Remember Joe Biden’s smear campaign against Clarence Thomas in his 1991 hearings to become a Justice of the Supreme Court?

And there was a long list of Republicans who told Trump to concede the election and not fight the obvious vote fraud.  They wanted him gone.  These same republicans email us for money and you can’t get rid of them no matter how many times you unsubscribe.  They keep coming back.

Biden apparently has a plan to win the 2022 electionsTrue the Vote’s Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips discussed the Chinese infiltration of U.S. election software.

The Goldwater Campaign

Having been a Goldwater girl when Barry Goldwater was running for president in 1964, I watched as “neo-conservative” elements moved to encircle and control his campaign.  One of his speechwriters, unbeknownst to him, was a member of the Students for a Democratic Society, led by militant communists.  Efforts of men within the party who did not want Goldwater elected, including the Rockefellers and George Romney (Senator Willard Mitt Romney’s father) were comfortable working with and befriending people like Saul Alinsky (Hillary Clinton met Alinsky in 1961), the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and similar community activist groups promoting a socialist agenda.

At the time, the establishment retained its control over the party leadership and purposely scuttled the campaign.  To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments by Arthur R. Thompson tells the story of a group of people from Europe who banded together to subvert America’s liberty, government and religious system.

Irving Kristol and other “former” Trotskyite communists had infiltrated the Republican Party; they were leftists brought in to dilute and divide what was left of Republican constitutionalists.  William F. Buckley and Kristol did their best to destroy true patriotic and constitutional conservatives with their subtle socialist dogma.  He supported liberal causes, from abortion, drugs, and pornography, to the Panama Canal giveaway.

John McManus’ book, William F. Buckley Jr.: Pied Piper for the Establishment, tells the entire sordid tale.  Buckley was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), a CIA agent and member of Yale Skull and Bones Society.

In fact, the Republican Party has done all it can to ensure that constitutionalists’ influence is negated or isolated within the party.  And of course, the average party activists or voters never see what goes on behind the scenes.

Tragedy and Hope

For nearly 60 years, we have seen a failure of the Republican Party to fight the assault on freedom.  We’ve called them weak, when in fact they are players in the same evil game.  When I look at Senator McConnell and Congressman Kevin McCarthy, I think, “Hell no, they won’t save anything except themselves.”

In 2014, I wrote a 23-part series entitled, Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right.  The following was mentioned in the first article of the series.

In 1966, Carroll Quigley wrote his massive book Tragedy and Hope, A History of the World in our Time. Tragedy being that so many people have to die, and Hope being the New World Order. He was the official historian for the CFR and was privileged to study the elites’ plans for the world for nearly two years. Quigley taught at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University from 1941 to 1976, and was Bill Clinton’s mentor. On page 1247 of his book, he wrote this:

The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. The policies that are vital and necessary for America are no longer subjects of significant disagreement, but are disputable only in details of procedure, priority, or method …..Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.

This is what exists today in America! We have one party with one agenda! This book had its first printing in 1966. The powers that be (Milner, Rhodes, the CFR, etc.) were so horrified that Quigley had exposed so many secrets, the book was not reprinted, and Macmillan Publishing destroyed the plates. It wasn’t until 1974 that Jack Meserole received permission from Quigley, reprinted the book, and sold it for his cost. Quigley laughed at the elitists because he knew the noose was so tight around the necks of Americans that even with the truth of his book, nothing would change.

Conclusion

We have seen the hatred of both left and right for anyone who would challenge the status quo.  Too many Republican politicians do not believe in the conspiracy that people on the left will infiltrate their organization to scuttle any chance of a viable candidate having an effective level of influence.  We’ve seen it time and again.  The enemies of freedom surround those who could make a difference and ultimately destroy.

Our once great nation has come under the control of deranged totalitarians, of power-seeking sociopaths who hate America, her people, our Constitution, and especially our Judeo-Christian culture.  Our very words and thoughts are subject to censorship and labeled as hate speech, misinformation or conspiracy theories.  We are now called extremists.

Arthur Thompson, former CEO of the John Birch Society tells us, “What is taught today is that a belief in conspiracies is shallow thinking, and perhaps even paranoia.  In 1776, it was taught as fact.  When two or more people plan in secret to affect an evil purpose, it is the definition of a conspiracy, whether you like the word or not.”

New Zealand Prime Minister and young global leader Jacinda Ardern said, “government is your single source of truth. Unless you hear it from us, it’s not the truth.” She also tells us we should dismiss anything else we hear unless issued by government.

No difference than what we’re hearing from our illegitimate president and his administration, what is being foisted upon us with censorship throughout mainstream and social media.

We are in a spiritual war, a war between good and evil.

Arthur Thompson ended his book with these words, “The Conspiracy does not care what you know, only what you do about what you know.”

What will you do?

Why Do We Tolerate Communism?

National Socialism, better known as Nazism, is a totalitarian ideology responsible for the murder of over 17 million people between 1933 and 1945, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. That’s a figure which does not include the Allied troops who fought and died to defeat Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Having been defeated, there is next to no tolerance of National Socialism ideology in the United States today. Those who espouse Nazism are (correctly) anathema, outcasts and oddballs at best. You do not see people wearing t-shirts adorned with swastikas, or stylized t-shirts with well-known Nazis on them. Political figures don’t have portraits of Adolf Hitler on the walls of their offices. There aren’t self-professed Nazi teachers and professors teaching our children in schools and universities.

But Nazism is not the only totalitarian ideology the United States fought in the 20th century.

There is another ideology responsible for even more pain, suffering, and deaths–Communism–with an estimated death count of over 100 million worldwide.

The United States and the rest of the free world waged a Cold War for half a century, fought major wars, brushfire wars and conflicts from Korea to Vietnam to Malaya to Grenada and El Salvador and dozens of places in Asia and Africa to stop the spread of this ideology. Hundreds of thousands gave their lives in this noble cause. The US, and its allies spilled precious blood and treasure to stop Communism. But why there is a tolerance (and outright advocacy in some instances) for Communism?

HEROES AND COLLEGE PROFESSORS

Che Guevara t-shirts are commonplace, despite the fact Guevara was a brutal terrorist and a racist. Guevara is probably one of the world’s most famous murderous psychotics, due to the large number of people who have romanticized him, many of them on college campuses.

Of course, there are more than a few Marxist college professors on our college campuses, pushing toxic communist-originated doctrines such as Critical Race Theory. Some research shows that there are more Marxists among faculties in some fields than there are conservatives.

Even outside of academia there are many in America who still espouse the so-called features and benefits of Communism—as well as other branches of the same poisonous Marxist vine. Prominent American politicians who are self-proclaimed socialists, enjoying the fruits of our free enterprise system while declaring the superiority of socialism. Such politicians are often celebrated in the media and it’s no wonder; we have self-proclaimed socialists there too.

And who can forget the portrait Mao hanging on the wall in the home of former Tennessee Democrat Congressman Harold Ford.  Or Anita Dunn, senior advisor to President Joe Biden, who described Mao as one of her favorite political philosophers. That’s Mao Tse-tung, the greatest mass murderer of the 20th century and father of Communist China, estimated to be responsible for the deaths of up to 70 million people.

While Mao’s death toll was unparalleled, it was the rule, not the exception. Everywhere Communism surfaces, it is accompanied by mass murderhuman miseryoppression and failure.

Soviet leader Josef Stalin killed as many as 11 million people through the forced implementation of communist agricultural policies alone. But that was just part of his reign of terror. Some estimate that he was responsible for the deaths of as many as 60 million people. Time magazine put Stalin on its cover 11 times.

Pol Pot of Cambodia, leader of the communist Khmer Rouge, killed somewhere between 1.5 million and 3 million people in establishing communist rule in Cambodia.

Cuba’s Fidel Castro is particularly romanticized. While Castro didn’t kill millions, he did kill tens of thousands, ruling Cuba with a brutal oppressive hand that is too often overlooked today.

The continued tolerance of Communism, despite its record–which is every bit as abhorrent as Nazism–is not an accident, and it is a travesty.  Souvenirs and memorabilia celebrating communism should be ridiculed and as rare as those that celebrate Nazism. You can’t find a Nazi flag on Amazon and that’s a good thing. But you can find the flag of another evil empire, the Soviet Union.

Why do we continue to tolerate it?

Why Do They Hate Us?

Americans gathered at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville over the weekend to remember the Islamic jihad terrorist attacks on 9/11 21 years ago.  ‘Why do they hate us?,’ George W. Bush wondered shortly after the attacks.  The bad news is they hate us because their religion commands them to hate us.

When you start with a holy book, the Quran, that says 164 times in various ways ‘slay the infidel’, you’re bound to have a problem.  The 9/11 attacks would not have occurred but for the standard Islamic doctrines of sharia supremacy and jihad, as shown by Arabic-language sources of Al Qaeda messages at the time.  Moreover, in 2009, five masterminds of the 9/11 attacks including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed – calling themselves the “9/11 Shura Council” – wrote that the 9/11 attacks were an “act of Jihad”, jihad being “a great duty in our religion.”  They quoted numerous verses from the Quran including the infamous ‘Verse of the Sword’ – “fight and slay the pagans wherever you find them.”

This isn’t just old news from the dustbin of history.  Standard Islamic doctrine is unchanged today, and there are plenty fresh reminders it means business.    There are also too many doctrinally-inspired Islamic jihad attacks taking place on a daily basis to dismiss the threat out of hand.  Let’s see what sharia supremacists say in their own words, shall we?

An imam formerly based in Houston said non-Muslims are the worst of Allah’s creations, that they are worse than animals.  He referred to a verse in the Quran which commands wives not to talk to their husbands if their husbands do not wage jihad.

A New York Times journalist said he favored killing and burning Jews “like Hitler did.”  The Islamic Education Center in Houston is teaching children to pledge allegiance to Iran’s leaders and to become soldiers to kill Jews.

A prominent imam in France said, ‘I make no distinction between Islamism and Islam. Islamism is Islam in action.’  This echoes the words of Turkish President Erdogan who said in 2017, “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam.  Islam is Islam and that’s it.”  The implication of these statements is that jihad attacks are the result of standard Islamic doctrine, not an extremist interpretation of Islamic doctrine.

A Swedish imam spoke of the “great battle” when all non-Muslims will be forced to submit to Islam, and he prayed to Allah to defeat or destroy Christians and Jews.  “Sweden is ours,” he said.  “It’s ours, whether they want this or not. In ten to fifteen years, it will be ours.”

Police in India discovered the battle plan of an Islamic group that wants to take over India by 2047.  They will accomplish their goal by infiltrating the government, killing their opponents, and recruiting enough jihadis to eventually engage in a show-down with the government.

But we don’t have to wait until 2047 to see doctrinally-inspired Islamic attacks.  Massacres are taking place daily as the Islamization of Africa continues.  In our own country, a Muslim passenger screaming ‘Allah’ tried to storm the cockpit of a JetBlue flight out of Boston last year.  This year, the FBI reversed itself and finally acknowledged the Islamic attack on the synagogue in Colleyville, Texas was an act of terrorism.  The Colleyville attacker told officials that he wished he had died in the 9/11 terror attacks.  Also this year, a man brutally murdered a woman in Seattle with a hatchet and bolt cutters after reading the Quran, which gave him the idea that he should kill her.

No wonder CAIR – the Council on American-Islamic Relations – wants to turn 9/11 into a national day of service and redefine 9/11 around efforts to counteract anti-Muslim bullying in school.   No wonder CAIR wants to skip right over the Islamic terror attacks that killed 3,000 people in America 21 years ago.  CAIR can deflect all it wants, but Islam’s victims are still dead and the holy Quran still commands Muslims to wage violent jihad until sharia covers the earth.

It’s time to have a serious discussion.  If standard Islamic doctrine doesn’t really mean what it says, let’s hear that from CAIR and other Islamic leaders.  If the doctrine does mean what it says and they really do hate us and want to kill us for religious reasons, let’s hear that, too.

There Is No Spoon

It is all an illusion


Cause: spiritual

Manifested results: physical

Struggling with the physical world is akin to punching your computer because Carl Johnson won’t run faster. If you do want to make him run faster, you need to mess with the source code. Beating on your computer won’t make a difference at all.

The physical world is like a television screen. It is the output, not the input. Things happen in the non-physical/spirit world. The physical world is only the manifested result. If you want to change what happens in the physical, mess with the non-physical/spirit realm.

I remember when I was young, I would get rejected by employers and girls right and left. I never experienced a yes from girls. I almost never received a yes from employers. To overcome my rejections, I would try over and over again. But the result was always the same. I was trying to use the physical world as an input device, which it fundamentally isn’t.

Here is the law of the non-physical world that I was violating: the law of attraction. We all are here on a spiritual journey. We resonate with only those people who are spiritually in tune with us. Looking back, I never met a single girl who was spiritually in tune with me. Most girls I met in college were either liberal or Churchian. In other words, they were under mind control. They used to say verbatim what they were programmed to say. Similarly, most employers were woke. By reaching out to them, I was wasting my time. The correct thing for me to do was to seek out people who were in tune with me. That’s how resonance works. Massive flow of energy happens when frequencies match.

If you want to change your physical reality, look into the spirit/non-physical world. See what you can do there. Every change you make there will be manifested on this screen called the physical world.

Note:

How do we know who we should reach out to? It is quite obvious. We tell our stories via our choices: what shoes we wear, whom we date, what jobs we like to do, what lifestyle we like to live, etc. We leave our spiritual fingerprints on everything we do.

Most times, you can just feel it when you are spiritually not in tune with someone. I knew I was out of tune with pretty much every employer and every girl. I did not look for that connection because I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find mundanely recruiters and girls at my level of spiritual awareness. I’d get annoyed whenever recruiters asked me to tell them about myself. I would instinctively think, “the self is an illusion/very fluid. There is nothing to be known there,” but could not say it. I had to come up with stupid responses like “what specifically would you like to know?”

Facebook Bans GELLER REPORT For Posting New Data About Covid Vaccine Concerns


Click here to view the Facebook censorship of the Geller Report.

Alarming data has continued to emerge concerning the side effects and contraindications of the Covid vaccine. Geller Report reports these findings. In response, Facebook has suspended our account. Whether this is at the behest of the Biden regime or Facebook’s own terrible, dangerous initiative is not known but the government has been colluding with social media platforms to silence those who dare report the facts.

Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed the government pressured Facebook to censor certain news stories.

Further, newly released emails show Facebook and the Biden regime held weekly/monthly meetings to discuss who and what to cennsor on their platform.

This is fascism and a flagrant violation of our unalienable first amendment rights. Despite these revelations, the unconstitutional suppression continues. There is no law, no accountability by a rogue regime.

Every Geller Report post is sources and linked, most linking back to the primary source – the study or analysis based on data.

Even the CDC Admits Post-Vaccine Myocarditis Concerns That Were Labeled Covid Misinformation Are Legit.

Note to Geller Report readers: I will never stop posting about it. I don’t care if they completely disappear me. Twitter has already permanently bannd me. They are killing people and destroying young people’s lives.

A Doctor Explains Why Doctors Aren’t Speaking Out

None of this would have been possible had the Democrats not socialized healthcare under Obamacare – government takeover of healthcare.

Why doctors aren’t speaking out

Written by a doctor. Everyone should read this. We are headed for a perfect storm with escalating health needs and a shortage of doctors because of how we treat them.

By: Steve Kirsch

Doctors have been whistleblowers throughout history. They’ve also been silenced | Medicine | The Guardian

Dear Steve,

You ask why doctors are silent. The electronic medical records (EMRs) are a ball and chain to physicians. We are tracked through them. When I wrote a prescription for Ivermectin for a patient, with informed consent (she was vaccinated), I received 5 letters threatening my medical license, my hospital privileges, and my insurance contracts. I would not have received 5 letters if I killed someone in negligence or malpractice. If I have my license pulled, I will no longer be able to help my patients.

I speak to patients on a one-on-one basis, but speaking out would destroy my family. I have children. Quite frankly, I have seen that patients want me to risk myself for them, but are wholly unwilling to support their physician. The population is lazy.

I can save your life, but I get paid less for my work than some hairdressers. My education is not valued by society, as supported by the rise of the “advanced practice provider.” I am almost done with my profession. I hope to retire in the next 1-3 years, decades before I had planned. I love what I do, but cannot take this toxic and broken system any longer. This is why so many have retired in the past couple years, and this trend will continue.

I am attaching the latest California bill to throttle physicians. I hear no outcry. I told patients over a year ago that the vax would not prevent them from getting COVID. It was never studied to do so. I actually read the studies. This of course was disinformation, but has now been proven to be true.

Who will be the truth czar for healthcare? How am I to keep up? I am left to assume that the population wants the government to guide their healthcare. That is, in fact, the plan. The healthcare system will be socialized within the next 5 years I predict. And the population will be shocked. No one is paying attention.

I thank you for all you are doing, and wish you the best of luck. I feel like you are David against Goliath.

‘Unconscionable’: Biden Admin Renames Hundreds Of ‘Racist And Derogatory’ Landmarks

The first recorded version of squa was found in a book called Mourt’s Relation: A Journey of the Pilgrims at Plymouth written in 1622. The term was not used in a derogatory fashion but spoke of the “squa sachim or Massachusetts Queen” in the September 20, 1621 journal entry.

“Squaw comes from a language of the Algonquian family in which it meant ‘woman’.”The True History of the Word Squaw


President Joe Biden’s Interior Department (DOI) released replacement names for almost 650 “racist and derogatory” geographical features on federal lands, the agency said Thursday.

The word “squaw” was determined by DOI’s Board of Geographic Names to be an an “offensive ethnic, racial and sexist slur, particularly for Indigenous women,” according to a press release. The word is from 1622 and means “an Indigenous woman of North America,” according to Merriam-Webster, and it was in the names of canyons, lakes, springs and other geographical features until Thursday.

“I feel a deep obligation to use my platform to ensure that our public lands and waters are accessible and welcoming,” DOI Secretary Deb Haaland said Thursday. “Together, we are showing why representation matters and charting a path for an inclusive America.”

DOI created a Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force in 2021, saying in an order “squaw” will soon be moved out of the names in federal land features. The agency held a final vote on the land name replacements and the Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force received over 1,000 name recommendations during the public comment period, DOI said Thursday.

Karen Budd-Falen, deputy solicitor for DOI’s parks and wildlife division under former President Donald Trump, said the Biden administration is too focused on “political correctness” instead of more important policy issues.

“There are great issues in this country that really need time and attention,” Budd-Falen told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “I just worry that we’re so busy worrying about political correctness and we’re not focused on these other issues more pressing issues and issues that are really going to affect the future structure of energy and American rural communities.”

Geographical features in dozens of states, including California, Alaska, Alabama and Pennsylvania are impacted by DOI’s order. While the new land names are effective immediately, the public can still suggest other name changes.

“It’s unconscionable that at a time of record inflation, record high gas prices, and an unsecured border, this is what the Biden administration is focusing on,” Republican Texas Rep. Troy Nehls told the DCNF. “This is yet another attempt to rewrite history to fit the Democrats’ extremist narrative.”

“It’s a shame, and this is not what the American people want,” said Nehls.

DOI did not respond to a request for comment.

The Real Gatekeepers Of The Internet

I was literally talking to an empty room.

After high school (2013), I set to the internet because I thought that the mainstream press, schools, and colleges would never let me get my ideas out. I started a WordPress blog. I would share my content on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Experience Project. I thought I would bypass the gatekeepers of information and have the last laugh. In 2014, I joined Brian Johnson’s Entheos. Experience Project and Entheos shut down down the line. In 2016, I started posting on Instagram. In 2017, I joined LinkedIn. In 2019, I joined Medium. In 2020, I started this blog. And nothing came out of any of it. No one even knows I did all this. I got little to no views across all the platforms. I was literally talking to an empty room. Now, I have finally understood why.

The Internet is not free of gatekeepers. The gatekeepers are people who write the algorithms.

The algorithms do not look for quality but for engagement. You see a post not because it is good but because it has already been liked by others. This system soon turns into a popularity contest. Since average minds like average ideas, most of what you see trending on social media has to be average. This is why Marianne Williamson has 554K followers on Instagram while Taylor Swift has 210M. In comparison to M. Williamson, T. Swift posts nothing valuable. If you are above average, social media is bound to make you sick. Since quality content is liked by quality people only, who are less in number, you are unlikely to see posts from top scientists, poets, authors, and philosophers. Their content would never rise to the top. This system is very similar to democracy. The popular choice is seldom the wisest one.

Today, I have already deleted most of my social media accounts. I still have Instagram and LinkedIn but no longer post anything. I have accepted the reality that social media will never work for me. I am not what social media algorithms are looking for. I can’t post vain comments on other people’s stupid posts. I can’t like my own posts, nor can I aggressively like other people’s comments on my posts. I can’t make small talks in dm. I don’t care to search for hastags. I am not autistic. It is very similar to accepting that I would not succeed in college as a non-liberal.

Every system is designed to produce what it does, via the means of its algorithm. The algorithm at Harvard selects and promotes talent. TED’s algorithm promotes people who have great ideas. Social media algorithms promote vain, empty, and stupid people, which is why Kim Kardashian is more famous on social media than Jordan Peterson. Social media is not designed to promote thinkers and philosophers.

In other words, if your content is getting a lot of organic exposure on social media, it might just be mediocre. On LinkedIn, I almost never see good content, because good content does not get enough engagement from average minds. Being on LinkedIn is a very draining and exhausting experience because 9/10 posts are mediocre or stupid. I feel as if the number of followers a person has on LinkedIn is inversely proportional to his intelligence. I would personally never hire a writer/proofreader/editor from LinkedIn if his/her content is getting a lot of engagement. It might be a testament to his/her mediocrity.

Where will I be heading? I am looking for gatekeepers that look for quality, not clickability or popularity.

Internet does not and can not give everyone a voice. It can definitely give everyone the illusion that they have a voice. They have only as much voice as they have in an empty room — complete freedom to say whatever they want. No one’s listening though. Now, get off the internet.

The Real Gatekeepers Of The Internet II

The gatekeeping is not done at the production stage. It is done at the exposure stage. You are free to create whatever you want to. It is just that no one will ever get to see it unless you are already famous.

On LinkedIn, my last post had 408 views, 3 likes, 1 comment, and a share. LinkedIn already deplatformed the person who had commented. 5 people engaged out of 408 (1.2% engagement).

Another post had 322 views, 5 likes, 2 shares, and 4 comments. 11 people engaged out of 322 (3.4% engagement).

My view count has been in the same range since I got on Linkedin five years ago. On one of my posts, a commenter asked why I wasn’t getting more likes.

Exposure primarily depends on how many people you have in your network. It increases with engagement. Engagement depends on the product-market mix. Critical thinkers and intelligent people are more likely to engage with me than are average minds. But LinkedIn keeps removing intelligent people, so we are left with average minds and average content. At the same time, many refrain from interacting with me because their insecure bosses may be looking.

To increase initial exposure, most people add more users. Most LinkedIn users are so socially inept that they don’t even attach a personalized note with connection requests. New connections like to be added too so they can have exposure for their content. This is why most people are likely to accept your connection requests, including famous professors and business leaders, but they will likely never respond to your messages or anything you ever post. I have previously disconnected with some users because they did not reply to my messages.

I was and still am totally incapable of doing this. It is completely autistic to gather someone’s attention only to direct it to my posts. It is like feeding on his/her time and energy. I wonder how many feel as if influencers, brands, and famous people are using them as energy sources. No wonder people feel drained on social media. I never added strangers on social media until 2019. Most people in my online circles were folks I met in real life. In 2019, I started interacting more on LinkedIn, which led me to meet new people in the comment area. I started adding more people but still was not able to add the way others do. After 5 years on LinkedIn, I still have only 800 connections. Most LinkedIn experts advise having at least 1000 or 5000 connections. Imagine having vain relationships with 5000 people. You are bound to be depressed. There is no way you can keep up with 5000 people. I can’t keep up with 800. This is why I am leaving social media.

In a nutshell, I never got started on social media, because I was unable to add strangers and use their attention as energy for my machine. I can’t take advantage of people like that. I don’t even think that people should waste time on social media. None of my profiles ever took off. I never got the initial exposure, which is needed to get initial engagement. To this day, my Instagram posts and stories get very few views.

Growing on social media without meaninglessly adding people and posting vain comments on their posts is pretty much impossible. I would rather leave social media than do things that are vain and superficial. And no, you cannot have deep meaningful connections and conversations on social media. The internet is a virtual world. Virtual means not real. Nothing on the internet is real.

A Lawsuit Exposes the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Lies

The SPLC “shows reckless disregard for the truth and does not appear to perform any fact finding at all.”


Twenty-one years ago, Dustin Inman, a sixteen year old boy, lost his life to a Mexican illegal alien. That alien is still a wanted fugitive. Under the Trump administration, the ICE VOICE office was established to help victims of illegal aliens and Dustin’s killer appear on its most wanted list. In one of his numerous acts of calculated cruelty, Biden shut down ICE VOICE.

And two decades later Dustin’s killer is still out there.

There are tragically a thousand cases like this. But some of them make people step up. That’s how D.A. King founded the Dustin Inman Society. The former Marine financed it with his life savings, borrowed against his house and sold his inheritance. Since then he has fought a tireless campaign in Georgia against an illegal alien crisis that only keeps getting worse.

And now he’s fighting one against the Southern Poverty Law Center.

A decade ago the Southern Poverty Law Center called him a “nativist,” but admitted the Dustin Inman Society wasn’t a hate group. “Because he is fighting, working on his legislation through the political process, that is not something we can quibble with, whether we like the law or not,” Heidi Beirich, the woman behind the SPLC’s infamous hate labeling, conceded.

Now, the SPLC lists the Dustin Inman Society and D.A. King as an “anti-immigrant hate group” because he favors enforcing the nation’s laws. King responded by suing the SPLC.

D.A. King’s adopted sister is Korean. The board of the Dustin Inman Society includes black and Hispanic, as well as immigrant, board members. The SPLC chose to disregard all of that by smearing the organization as a bigoted hate group anyway.

The complaint notes the past history of violent assaults triggered by SPLC hate group designations and hate map listings including the Family Resource Council terrorist attack. The complaint demonstrates the sloppiness that the SPLC is known for by listing a series of basic factual errors about the year when the Dustin Inman Society was incorporated, where King was employed and what year he got involved in activism against the illegal alien crisis.

“These admissions taken together show that Defendant SPLC not only fails to investigate or have expertise at all on groups it monitors but instead shows reckless disregard for the truth and does not appear to perform any fact finding at all,” the complaint charges.

The Southern Poverty Law Center either knew that the Dustin Inman Society “did not meet its own definition of ‘hate group’ and maliciously published the designation anyway or was so grossly incompetent and reckless as to be malicious in publishing the designation without doing any due dillegence as they repeatedly hold out to the public.”

The SPLC’s response essentially acknowledged that its hate group labels are a matter of opinion and cited a previous judicial ruling arguing that King had failed to allege facts “plausibly demonstrating, by clear and convincing evidence, that SPLC subjectively knew that its characterization of DIS was false.”

You can’t prove we’re lying on purpose.

The Southern Poverty Law Center wants its smears to be treated as facts. And companies fire people, Big Tech monopolies deplatform organizations, including the David Horowitz Freedom Center, based on those smears. The SPLC provides training to law enforcement and politicians use its lists as a basis for government action. Guidestar, a non-profit information source, at one point added SPLC ‘flags’ on organizations that it had listed as hate groups. That goes beyond merely offering “opinions”. And yet when cornered, the SPLC’s lawyers counter that it’s just offering “constitutionally protected opinions” no different than any pundit.

The SPLC legal filing contends that, “nor does it matter whether SPLC keeps track of and publicizes how many organizations it has designated as hate groups. This does not somehow mean that any of the individual hate group designations themselves are factual.”

So much for what the Washington Post had described as ”a golden seal of disapproval, considered nonpartisan enough to be heeded by government agencies, police departments, corporations and journalists.”

Even mainstream media coverage at Politico and other outlets had reported on the SPLC’s casual disregard for the facts, baselessly putting entire towns on its “hate map”. Front Page Magazine has had its own brushes with the leftist hate group and knows how little in the way of anything factual is involved in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s listings.

At one point, the Southern Poverty Law Center had listed my single author blog as one of its “Active Anti-Muslim Hate Groups” alongside “Casa D’Ice Signs,” the signs on a bar located on K-Mart Plaza in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. In one year it claimed that the “number of anti-Muslim hate groups increased almost three-fold” by counting Act for America as one group in one year and then counting all of its chapters separately the next year.

As sleazy and dishonest as you think the SPLC might be, it’s actually much worse.

There’s no question that the SPLC’s listings are comprehensive. They included, at one point, Ben Carson, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz’s father, and the African-American former Secretary of State of Ohio. The SPLC attacked former Homicide star Richard Belzer who was unhappy to be implicitly associated with Nazis. “As a Jewish person whose grandfather represented Israel at the United Nations before it was a state and an uncle, who as a member of the Resistance, fought the Nazis in World War Two, I am deeply hurt and offended,” he wrote.

Last year, the SPLC announced that it would stop monitoring black racial separatist groups because “black separatism was born out of valid anger against very real historical and systemic oppression” and the SPLC was adopting “an understanding of racism grounded in nuance and the realities of racial power dynamics.” What that meant was that black racism wasn’t racist.

Under these circumstances, it’s understandable that the SPLC isn’t even pretending that its smears have anything to do with the facts. At least not in a court of law. To its leftist donors, to law enforcement and corporations, the SPLC claims to be providing expert analysis and facts. But when sued over those same claims and the numerous sloppy errors that show no serious investigation ever took place, suddenly the SPLC’s opinion is no different than yours.

Except that it’s not.

A few years ago the House Democrat majority on the Ways and Means Committee presented a list of “hate groups” that it wanted to see lose their tax exempt status. The Democrat IRS hit list seemed to overlap with a list assembled by the SPLC and curated by Philanthropy Magazine. It included the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the American College of Pediatricians, the Center for Security Policy, the Family Research Council, and many others.

When government officials are using your list to target organizations, that’s not just an opinion.

D.A. King knows something about that. The Dustin Inman Society was never able to receive true non-profit status. Instead it’s been forced to operate as a 501(c)(4). Taking on the SPLC is another way of trying to even the score. Two decades later, illegal migration, like so many of the other crises that the organizations targeted the SPLC were created to fight, have grown worse. And so has the suppression of the political opposition. King has spent nearly a generation fighting an endless fight against open borders. And open borders is what the SPLC wants.

“With the full knowledge that we are a coalition made up of Americans of diverse descriptions – including proud immigrants – the SPLC has repeatedly spread false and libelous accusations that DIS is somehow an “anti-immigrant hate group,” D.A. King stated. “While we educate Georgians on the need for state legislation aimed at deterring the organized crime of illegal immigration in Georgia, the SPLC has worked against passage of such measures as anti-enforcement lobbyists in the Georgia Capitol.”

The SPLC’s Immigrant Justice Project claims that “Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers have illegally and unfairly apprehended immigrants with disregard for their rights.” Even while the SPLC fights for illegal aliens, it also uses its false claims of expertise to denounce those who disagree and arranges to have them blacklisted and subjected to government action.

That’s not debate. Nor is it an opinion. It’s political repression.

Dems Blame Sexism, Racism For Abrams’ Floundering Campaign

Democrats are “increasingly pessimistic” about voter fraud enthusiast Stacey Abrams’ prospects of unseating Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R), according to a report from the leftist propaganda outlet New York Times.

“Some of Ms. Abrams’s supporters say her struggles are more rooted in sexism than any strategic misstep,” the Times reported. “She is running in the Deep South for an office that has long been elusive to women and candidates of color.”

“We have to work harder as women, as African American women. … [We] just have a harder time capturing the imagination as executives,” former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin said.

Democrat donor Steve Phillips dismissed Abrams’ stagnant poll numbers as “just sexism” and said her “identity as a black woman” generates enthusiasm for her candidacy but also “explains the depth of the resistance” to her.

Or maybe she’s just completely unlikeable.

“Stacey Abrams’ campaign isn’t connecting with Georgia voters, and people across the country and here in Georgia know it,” Kemp spokesman Tate Mitchell said.

George Soros Backs Abrams’ 2022 Gubernatorial Bid with $1 Million Donation

In March 2022, multibillionaire George Soros, through Democracy PAC II — a federal political action committee which was created to promote Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections — donated $1 million to Abrams’ second campaign for Georgia governor. Moreover, Soros and his family members personally contributed approximately $60,000 directly to Abrams’ campaign.

Vast Majority of Donations to Abrams Come from Out-of-State

A July 14, 2022 Axios.com report stated that just over 14 percent of the money — $7 million out of nearly $50 million — which had been donated to Abrams’ gubernatorial campaign, had come from donors inside the state of Georgia. The $43 million in out-of-state contributions included $10 million from California, $3.6 million from New York, $2.5 million from Delaware, and $6.4 million from Washington, D.C.  Among the individual out-of-state funders of Abrams’ campaign were such notables as Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and Melinda Gates ($200,000). A key organizational donor was George Soros’ Democracy PAC — based in the District of Columbia — which delivered $2.5 million.

Of the $7 million in donations to Abrams that originated in Georgia, $1.5 million came from Fair Fight, an organization founded by Abrams herself.

We Need Fewer Rulers and More True Leaders

“The beginning of wisdom,” said Confucius, “is to call things by their proper name.” 


With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the British Commonwealth is entering a time of transition not seen in 70 years. What’s clearly mapped out is who will get the crown. What’s not so clear is the future of the monarchy as an institution.

At times like these, questions inevitably arise that are otherwise deemed too inconsequential to ask. What practical purpose does the monarchy fulfill, exactly? What are the powers of the head-of-state, and why should one person be given these powers?

But perhaps we should step back and ask a more preliminary question first: why should we care?

My gut response is to say we shouldn’t care. In fact, at first I wanted to ignore this story. I don’t think it’s healthy for a culture to be so fixated on political figures.

Having thought it through, however, I realized there’s an important point to be made here, and that this is the time to make it. After all, times of transition present opportunities to reflect and rethink things—not just the little things, but the big things too.

One of the primary points of discussion is of course whether there should even be a monarchy. Many people (rightly) point out that the institution no longer serves any practical purpose, and that it’s about time we finally did away with the vestigial elements that remain to this day. At the very least, the taxpayers could surely use the break.

But others say it still serves an important purpose. The monarch is a figurehead, they say, even if only ceremonially. Society needs a leader that we can look to and rally around, and the monarch fills that role.

Now, it’s true that society needs leaders. But monarchs are not so much leaders as they are rulers. They did not win willing followers like true leaders. They were simply born into a government-privileged position. The authority and status they have exists merely because of power. They did nothing to earn it.

For some, this is what makes democracy better than monarchy. Whereas monarchs are simply entitled to power, democratically-elected politicians must win the hearts of their people. They must champion the causes people care about and earn their followers and admirers.

But while it’s tempting to think democracy is a more genuine form of leadership, this isn’t really the case. Politicians in democracies are rulers, too. Though they may inspire some, they still exert power over others. A genuine leader simply invites others to follow them. A politician, on the other hand, demands compliance with their wishes. When the politician can’t persuade, they resort to force. They compel the hearts they cannot win.

That’s not leadership. That’s tyranny.

It’s also not entirely true to say that their supporters are followers in the genuine sense of the word. Quite often, people vote for a politician simply because the politician has promised them a share of the money extorted from taxpayers. To that extent, the voters are acting more as co-conspirators, working with the politicians to profit at the expense of their neighbors.

That’s not a leader. That’s a demagogue.

The distinction between leaders and rulers is subtle, but important. It’s important because it paints a more accurate picture of what politics is really about, one that reveals the true nature of the beast.

“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name,” said Confucius. When politicians get away with calling themselves our leaders, the euphemism makes their role sound lofty and inspiring. But when we call them what they really are, our rulers, the true nature of their position is laid bare. It’s akin to saying the emperor has no clothes. Except in this case, the con is the idea that the emperor is your friend, and the truth is that he is your master.

So yes, society absolutely needs leaders. But genuine leaders are those who set an example and inspire us to follow them. Do you see the difference? A leader has followers. A ruler has subjects. A leader inspires. A ruler commands. A leader wins loyalty. A ruler demands loyalty. A leader offers guidance. A ruler insists you follow his path. A leader sets an example. A ruler makes an example of those who refuse to obey.

So rather than obsessing over queens, kings, and presidents, let’s focus our time and attention on the genuine leaders in society, the people making a positive difference. Let’s not fixate on the Elizabeth IIs and the Charles IIIs of the world, or the Joe Bidens and Donald Trumps: rulers and demagogues who often bring out the worst in us and set us against each other. Instead, let’s pay more attention to the people—whether public figures or personal mentors—who bring out the best in us. Let’s look to entrepreneurial visionaries, creative trailblazers, philosophical, moral, and religious inspirations, and see what guidance they have to offer. Maybe they will inspire us to become true leaders ourselves.

Which would be a very good thing. The world could use a lot fewer rulers and a lot more genuine leaders.
