Thanks to a misreading of the Constitution, America is becoming more and more of a secular wasteland.
All sorts of ideas and ideologies are allowed in the public square. But not Christian ones. That exclusion does not comport with what the founders of America intended.
I thank God for people like Kirk Cameron, the actor and children’s author, who often presents a library presentation helping children learn about God, instead of promoting things like “drag queen story hour.”
It’s become a cliché to say that it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. But Cameron is indeed lighting many candles in the darkness.
Foxnews.com wrote recently of Cameron’s “months-long tour across the country to nearly a dozen public libraries to share messages promoting family, faith and country…to bring a new story time book hour to families and children.” [If interested, you can hear Kirk Cameron discuss with me the need we have today for a new Great Awakening.]
But what about “the separation of church and state”? Indeed, we are often told that the founding fathers intended a strict “separation of church and state,” by which secularists mean a separation of God and state.
But in reality, what the founders said in the First Amendment was, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” By these words, did they intend to banish God from the public arena?
At the time they wrote those words, about half of the states had their own established churches —something never declared illegal.
Just consider a few facts about the founding fathers and religion (or the acknowledgment of God). The very same men who wrote the First Amendment (words which are now being used to keep God, and certainly Jesus, out of the public arena) did the following:
Created the system of chaplains for the military and for the legislature.
Adopted the Northwest Ordinance, which said that schools should be encouraged in America so that they could teach “Religion, morality, and knowledge” (in that order).
Acknowledged the Christian Sabbath in the Constitution. Article 1, Section 7 includes this statement: “If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted).”
Said that God is the source of our rights (in the Declaration of Independence). Had presidents sworn in on the Holy Bible from the very beginning, adding the oath, “So help me God” in the process.
Delivered speeches and wrote documents that mentioned God over and over.
Called for national days of fasting and prayer and thanksgiving.
And on and on it goes.
In fact, consider one instance of the last example. The same men in the First Congress who had adopted the First Amendment (now used to exclude Christianity from the public square) wrote to the first president under the Constitution, George Washington asking him to declare a day of Thanksgiving to God.
Washington tells of their request to him “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”
On October 3, 1789, George Washington complied and declared a day of thanksgiving to the Lord to take place November 26. Later, Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving an annual holiday.
The founders did not intend for there to be a separation of God from government. They simply did not want one national denomination holding the reins of power.
As my good friend, Bill Federer, best-selling author and speaker, likes to say, you can compare religious liberty in America to a pebble thrown in a pond.
For example, in our upcoming special “Endowed by Their Creator” in the Foundation for American Liberty filmseriesfor Providence Forum, Federer makes this observation: “When you look at the founding of America, you see how Christians came up with the idea of tolerance, and then, expanded it to others. So, every colony was founded by a different denomination. It’s like you drop the pebble in the pond and the ripples go out. First it was tolerance only for the denomination that started the colony. Then it went out to Protestants, then it went out to Catholics, then it went out to Jews, then it went out to [general] monotheism, polytheists, and any religion. Finally went out to the atheists, and the last ones in kicked the first ones out.”
The founders would well be aghast at what has happened to our country because of the ongoing jihad against God in the public square. As Washington himself noted in his Farewell Address, “Religion and morality are indispensable supports to good government and the happiness of mankind.”

“The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine and reset our world.” — Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum
“The most important question in 21st-century economics may well be, ‘What should we do with all the superfluous people, once we have highly intelligent non-conscious algorithms that can do almost everything better than humans?’” — Yuval Noah Harari
“In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority… National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” — Strobe Talbot, Clinton Administration Deputy Secretary of State (Time Magazine)
“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” — Elie Wiesel
Psychological warfare has been used against the American people since the middle 1800s. Our enemies have gained immense ground with the years of Sars-CoV-2 fear and propaganda. They want to rid us of our sovereignty, our borders, our people and our property. All of this was laid out long ago by those who have had a hand in destroying the vast and beautiful country founded on the freedoms granted not by men, but by our Creator.
These purveyors of evil want to be gods, and they’re in lockstep with their goals of changing America into a joyless and empty state.
As Klaus Schwab has stated, “You will have nothing and be happy.” By 2030, their goal is slavery for all of mankind.
Their satanic movement may temporarily succeed, but the majority of their demonic minions haven’t a clue of what our Creator has planned for them.
At the EU Parliament COVID Conference, Dr. David Martin stated, “Coronavirus as a model of a pathogen was isolated in 1965. Coronavirus was identified in 1965 as one of the first infectious replicable viral models that could be used to modify a series of other experiences of the human condition. It was isolated once upon a time associated with the common cold. What is so interesting about its isolation in 1965 is that it was immediately identified as a pathogen that can be modified for a whole host of reasons. In 1966 the UK and USA got together and did just that…a biological. In 1967 they inoculated people with the first modified coronavirus.”
Fleming stated that there is no evidence that Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes C-19, is naturally occurring. There is no animal model for it.
“The biological weapons convention treaty states that any adjustment or modification of a biological agent like this virus, that doesn’t provide a benefit for mankind, is a biological weapon. These particular changes in this virus, including the PrrA Insert which are amino acids that were inserted that are very critical, for the urine cleavage site, for this virus to infect. The insertion sites that were made with HIV and simian or ape-like HIV equivalent viruses, the prion-like domain at the top of the spike protein, as well as the HIV glycoprotein 120 insert, that Shi Zhengli put in early on, that’s critical for the attachment of this virus to cells, all of which are not naturally occurring.”
Dr. Fleming stated that they looked at all the different coronaviruses that exist on the planet and none of them have the PrrA Insert, nor the tremendous amount of HIV Insert. He said, “This is a prion like binding domain and prions are things that are abnormal proteins that cause other proteins to become abnormally folded.”
The data shows there were genetic changes made to the spike protein in a lab to create what is known as Covid-19.
“The type of research that had been done with Corona viruses, were funded by the US, supported by NIAID, NIH, Department of Defense, monies that went to Peter Daszak at ECO Health, to Ralph Baric at the University of North Carolina, to Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and to several other universities around the country, including in the state of Texas.”
Propaganda, Genocide and Slavery
Fear and propaganda, prompted obedience.
The unvaccinated were called murderers, variant factories, spreaders. Media stated they should not receive health care; they should be quarantined from society. Fauci even claimed we were propagating the outbreak. All lies.
John Abramson’s February 2023 article in Imprimis gives some shocking statistics on Big Pharma’s drugs. Germany’s Ministry of Health found that of 216 new drugs entering the German market from 2011-2017, only 54 were of “major” or considerable benefit. Thirty-seven were evaluated to be of “minor,” “less,” or “non-quantifiable” benefit. And there was “no proof of added benefit” for 125 of the drugs.
America doesn’t even have a formal mechanism of evaluating new products.
It was fear of the Jews spreading disease in Nazi Germany, fomented by Goebbels’ propaganda. With Sars-CoV-2, media’s propaganda was vicious against those who refused the vaccine. Unelected government agencies, corporations, hospitals, physician groups, all mandated the jabs. Medicine was taken over by government, just as it was in Nazi Germany.
In Nazi Germany, eugenics started with the physically disabled, mentally ill and elderly. The same thing happened in America. Scott and Cindy Schara saw the death of their high functioning Down Syndrome daughter, Grace. She was given three palliative care injections within 30 minutes repressing her already compromised respiratory system.
Midazolam was purchased in huge quantities in the UK and the US, and it was prescribed in lethal doses to C-19 patients.
The result was genocide…murder.
In March and April of 2020, the wealthiest countries in the world, United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, issued directives to hospitals not to treat the elderly. The NIH hospital protocols guaranteed mass euthanasia.
Governor Andrew Cuomo predicted the virus in nursing homes would be like fire through dry grass. Elderly humans are regarded as an economic burden, “useless eaters” or as Harari calls them, “superfluous people.” The US has never owned up to their genocidal policy against the elderly when five state governors put C-19 patients in nursing homes. In New York City alone, 15,000 elderlies died.
Andrew Cuomo was persuaded to do this by the insurance industry of New York and then he gave immunity to the hospitals and nursing homes.
Cost of the elderly and infirm was eliminated.
On page 170 of the Pfizer Documents Analysis Report, Pfizer knew their drug, Prevnar, a pneumococcal drug, may prevent C-19 in age 65 and older. Prior research pointed to the protective effects of Prevnar in viral and bacterial respiratory diseases. Prevnar also showed protective effects in C-19.
Pfizer was silent.
Dr. Zev Zelenko, bless his soul, said, “Those who really should have been on trial at Nuremberg, were Henry Ford who received an award from Hitler in 1938 equal to the U.S. Medal of Honor, Rockefeller owned the company that made Zyklon B to gas the Jews, GM made 75% of the trucks for the Nazi War machine, and IBM provided the primitive computer punch card system in order to manage the concentration camps.
“There are underlings, politicians, agencies, corporations etc. who are accessories to genocide, but unless we cut off the head, they’re just going to do it again.”
Vera Sharav stated, “The efficiency of IBM technology enabled industrialized level genocide and they are now at it again. It was IBM who Governor Cuomo of New York State contracted for the Vax Passport. The digital identity they’re now pushing is the ticket to slavery.”
Unless you were jabbed, you weren’t allowed in restaurants, bars, theatres, sports arenas, etc.
“Your papers please!”
Once we go into this digital system, the government will control everything we do. Trudeau gave a hint of this when he cut off protesting truckers from their bank accounts and even from their children.
Obedience ends in slavery.
Dr. Zelenko commented, “We have a few global psychopaths/sociopaths who have engineered a brilliant plan, evil, but brilliant, to enable the enslavement of humanity.”
Their plans will seem to succeed for a while, but our Creator will intervene and those evil plans will ultimately fail.
Rockefeller’s 2010, Operation Lockstep, stated, “Even after the pandemic is over, the researchers wrote that the authoritarian control would remain with supervision of the citizens and their activities.” Link
There is now a medical insurance code for Americans who have not received the C-19 injections. Yes, they’re watching us.
Medicine abandoned their Hippocratic oath to “do no harm” and fell into lockstep with the directives from unelected agencies, WHO, NIH, FDA, CDC, AMA. All were in on it. They became agents of the state, for euthanasia, infanticide and genocide. Biden handed out a billion dollars to media to run positive propaganda for the injections.
Der Fuhrer Schwab
“You never let a serious crisis go to waste.” Many have made this statement and it is management by crisis to do things the governments ordinarily could not do. Klaus Schwab is the new leader for the planned “Great Reset” the Lord God warned us about. Yes, this is the unthinkable satanic evil the Bible warned us about 2,000 years ago. It will be a world where your property, your identity, your money will be controlled by government.
Surveillance, finance and scoring are the pillars of the Great Reset Agenda. Social credit scoring, as in communist China, is coming. Klaus Schwab, like Maurice Strong before him, is a big fan of China’s system and the country’s current leader.
Klaus Schwab’s father was Eugen Schwab; he was a manager of the Swiss-German company called Escher-Wyss factory in Schwab’s hometown of Ravensburg, Germany. In the 1930s, the Escher-Wyss factory was directly managed by Eugen Schwab and was the largest employer in Ravensburg. Hitler awarded Escher-Wyss with the title of “National Socialist Model Company” while Eugen was at the helm.
The Red Cross had a rumored agreement with various companies, including Escher-Wyss, that the Allied forces were not to target the Southern German town. It was never classified as a significant military target. The town was infamous in 1934 for the sterilization of people diagnosed with mental or various other illnesses.
Ravensburg was the first German city to practice eugenics by killing “useless eaters.” Yuval Noah Harari is still using this term. He tells us that we are now in another industrial revolution. Schwab calls it the 4th Industrial Revolution, but it is really the 4th Reich, worldwide fascism and death to the undesirables, those “superfluous people.”
Harari says the product in this revolution will be humans themselves and they intend to produce bodies and brains and minds via bioengineering and brain interfaces. Medical experiments and genetic modification on people, far greater than what was done with C-19 injections, will happen just like the Nazis did in their day.
Ravensburg was a transport hub for stolen Nazi gold to the Swiss Bank for International Settlements, and Eugen Schwab aided the Nazis in producing significant weapons of war and armaments. Klaus’ father was also involved in using forced laborers to work at his “model Nazi company.” Nearly 3,600 forced laborers, including POWs, made up one of the largest forced labor camps.
Shades of Klaus’ statement, “You will own nothing and be happy.”
In 1966, Escher-Wyss had merged with the Sulzer brothers. In 1967, Klaus joined the renamed company, Sulzer-Escher-Wyss, in even darker aspects of the global nuclear arms race. Klaus also helped to rehabilitate the eugenics-influenced population control policies from the post WWII era. He transformed the company into a technology corporation for a new hi-tech future, including another focus of their business to “form the basis for “medical technology” products.
In 1971 after marrying Hilde, a former assistant, he formed the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.
Schwab has courted heads of state, leading business executives, and the elite of academic and scientific circles into the Davos fold for over 50 years. More recently, he has also courted the ire of many due to his more recent role as the front man of the Great Reset, a sweeping effort to remake civilization globally for the express benefit of the elite of the World Economic Forum and their allies.
Klaus Schwab was born on March 30th, 1938 in Ravensburg, Germany. He and his younger brother both followed in their father’s footsteps and became machine engineers. Klaus studied for a plethora of degrees, including at Harvard where he met and was mentored by war loving Henry Kissinger.
The Intercept’s latest, Blood on His Hands, claims Kissinger’s carpet bombing of Cambodia killed 150,000 civilians. Equally disgusting is Kissinger’s deceit with the North Vietnamese which cost the lives of POWs and information regarding MIA soldiers.
Hilde is the Chairman and Co-Founder of the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship at WEF. In 1998, she and her husband created the foundation to provide a platform where they could engage with global businesses and political leaders to “solve” social and environmental challenges. The entire Schwab family is active in literally changing the way the entire planet does business, including social aspects which means the people will be thoroughly and totally controlled.
Klaus and Hilde’s daughter, Nicole Schwab is the co-founder of the Gender Equality Project, Co-Head of Nature-Based Solutions and member of the Executive Committee of the World Economic Forum. She knew the COVID crisis enabled WEF to shift quickly to create a change in what they call “restoration generation.” She said the youth are the integral part of the takeover, just as did Hitler in the 1930s. The entire world is now full of Hitler Youths, Global Youths, who will be that “Restoration Generation.”
Their son, Olivier Schwab, is serving as the Head of Technology and Managing Director of the World Economic Forum. He states that “through the platform, we’ve channeled about 100 million dollars’ worth of venture funding for some of the impact entrepreneurs. Oh yes, anyone can help with the SDG goals.
They are building the New World Order, the Fourth Reich, the Great Reset, the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Their target date is 2030. This means by 2030, they want to control the entire planet, all finances, all food, all healthcare, all education, all people, all water, all energy, all businesses, all transportation, all buying and selling, and every single aspect of all life on planet earth, including all of God’s creation.
Hiding behind a mask of corporations, funds, foundations, think tanks and a maze of interconnections, Klaus is busy recreating the Fourth Reich and promoting the age-old Nazi ideology. His SS are all over the world. In America, members of WEF are scattered throughout our state and federal governments, both left and right. They are the “entrepreneurs” of this new 4th Reich.
The Reich Minister of Propaganda, Josef Goebbels would be proud of our media’s repeated lies of fear and panic during the Sars-CoV-2 years.
Reichsführer of the Schutzstaffel (SS), and a leading member of the Nazi Party of Germany, Heinrich Himmler, the architect of the Holocaust, would be proud of how many entrepreneurs have joined the new party, the World Economic Forum. They were active during the lockdowns and mandates with their control of the masses.
Angel of Death, Josef Mengele would be proud of the facilitators of the global pandemic and bioweapon jabs, causing millions of deaths with their experiments on the world’s human and animal population.

Since this column is about Critical Thinking, it seems appropriate that we at least do a periodic, quickie overview of how to think critically…
Not surprisingly, most people label themselves as critical thinkers. But are they?
Likewise, most teachers contend that they teach Critical Thinking. But do they?
The concept of critical thinking is not complex. One way to define Critical Thinking is to call it advanced problem-solving. Another way is to look at how it works in practice: when we are faced with an important decision, if we want better results we need to objectively and thoroughly analyze both sides of an issue.
Let’s say that you are a farmer, who is financially just getting by. A good-ole-boy salesperson comes to your door (purposefully dressed down), and offers to lease a relatively small part of your spread for some industrial wind turbines. The deal is that his firm would pay you $400,000 cash ($20,000 per year for the next 20 years). He says: “Just say yes to this very reasonable agreement and it’s a done deal.”
Wow, you think, this could be life-changing! “Where do I sign?” you hear yourself saying. But WAIT! This is exactly the type of case where Critical Thinking is essential. You are about to make a 20+ year commitment, that has enormous implications.
Let’s THINK about this. To begin with, most decisions have both an emotional and logical component. They both need to be fully engaged. The farmer’s initial response was emotional — as he saw himself sitting on a Florida beach. That’s fine as long as the logical part also makes sense. This is where thorough and objective come in.
He does understand that he is being given a one-sided sale pitch. What does he know about this salesman or the wind developer? Nothing! What is he legally agreeing to when he accepts this deal? No idea! (It’s spelled out in a 34-page contract.) Has he read every word of the contract? No! Does he fully understand every part of it? No!
As a minimum, he should hire a competent attorney, and specifically instruct the lawyer to tell him EVERYTHING that is potentially problematic in this contract.
He should also reach out to those who are opposed to industrial wind energy, and carefully listen to their arguments. The lease money is one thing, but there are other adverse consequences to his family, to his neighbors, and to his community. Doing this, he comes across a webpage which identifies many wind energy liabilities, and a document where forty (40) potential adverse consequences to farmers are listed. OMG!
The choice here is stark: 1) go the emotional route, focusing on the money, or2) do Critical Thinking and see the whole matter from a much more accurate perspective.
The benefits of Critical Thinking apply to hundreds of life choices — from who you are going to vote for, to whether or not you are going to attend church.
When should we learn how to do Critical Thinking? Easy: the sooner the better. Every year that goes by without that ability, you are much more likely to be victimized by con artists or to make mistakes that might have lifelong implications.
Where do we learn how to do critical thinking? The most logical place is in K-12 Science classes. Why? Because real Scientists are taught to question everything. Real Scientists do not rely on “consensus” or “peer review” (another form of consensus).
When a technical matter is being debated (e.g., Is wind energy a net societal benefit?), they conduct a scientific analysis, which has four (4) components. Such an evaluation is: 1) objective, 2) comprehensive, 3) empirical, and 4) transparent.
Note that the first two parts are the same thing that any critically thinking citizen will automatically do!
The bottom line of this brief overview is that critical thinking should be specifically and carefully taught in K-12 Science classes so that it becomes second nature. Why isn’t this already happening in our education system?
A major reason is that the powers-that-be who are controlling our K-12 educational standards (e.g., NGSS), do not want critically thinking citizens. Of course they do not acknowledge that, but the proof is in the pudding.
A few years ago the Center for Critical Thinking was asked to conduct a study for the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing to determine the extent to which teacher preparation programs were preparing prospective teachers to teach critical thinking. The study showed that although most faculty considered critical thinking to be of primary importance to instruction (89%), only 19% could adequately articulate what critical thinking is.
“The reason teacher preparation programs fail to place critical thinking at the heart of the curriculum is two-fold,” says educational psychologist and critical thinking specialist Linda Elder. “First, faculty who control and teach the curriculum simply don’t know what critical thinking is. Second, they think they do.”
Critical thinking fosters independence, enhances creativity, and encourages curiosity. Kids who are taught to use critical thinking skills ask a lot of questions and never take things at face value—they want to know the “why” behind things.
Good critical thinking skills also can lead to better relationships, reduced stress, and improved life satisfaction. Those who can solve everyday problems will feel more confident in their ability to handle whatever challenges life throws their way.
There is an abundance of published material on how to become a critical thinker (e.g., see next two paragraphs). If one didn’t know any better, one may conclude that since there is plenty of material available to have a K-12 course specifically dedicated to learning how to Critically Think, that our education leaders are purposefully avoiding it — i.e., it is NOT a top objective of our current education system…
PS — Adults who were deprived of that educational experience in school can learn to do critical thinking if they are committed to making it happen — just as with any other skill. They should want to do this, as it is in their interest to do so. “How to Learn Critical Thinking” has many worthwhile points.
The recent impeachment proceedings against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton have raised concerns about the fairness and impartiality of the process. This analysis aims to shed light on the allegations and underscore the potential bias and political motivations behind the impeachment effort. Examining the facts and considering the broader context before rushing to judgment is essential.
Questionable Testimony and Misinformation
The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) released a comprehensive report that refutes the incorrect testimony presented during the impeachment proceedings. This report directly challenges the basis of the allegations and highlights the inaccuracies, falsehoods, and misstatements made against Paxton. It is concerning that such flawed testimony formed the basis for the impeachment charges, casting doubt on the legitimacy of the process.
Politically Motivated Investigation
The General Investigating Committee’s investigation appears to have been politically motivated. The allegations against Paxton have been long-disproven and are rooted in hearsay and gossip. A thorough examination by the OAG itself refuted each of the former employees’ claims. Despite these findings, the decision to proceed with impeachment suggests an ulterior motive to tarnish Paxton’s reputation rather than pursue justice.
Exhaustive Report and Outside Investigation
The OAG’s exhaustive report released in August 2021 meticulously addressed the allegations made by former employees. Additionally, an outside law firm was retained to conduct further investigation into retaliation claims. This independent investigation resulted in a report documenting legitimate, non-retaliatory grounds for terminating the individuals involved. Acknowledging that this exonerating information was readily available but seemingly ignored by the committee investigators, indicating a lack of interest in the truth, is crucial.
Ignored Offer to Testify
Despite an official from the OAG being present at a hearing and offering to testify, the House General Investigating Committee deliberately chose to overlook this opportunity. This disregard for essential information and refusal to engage with the facts further reinforces the notion that the committee focused more on a predetermined outcome than on seeking the truth. This approach undermines the integrity of the entire impeachment process.
Ken Paxton characterizes the impeachment as political retribution and such claims cannot be dismissed lightly. Paxton has been a solid conservative voice and an unwavering advocate for Texas voters. The timing and circumstances surrounding his impeachment raise questions about whether the motivation was to undermine conservative principles and silence a staunch opponent of the Biden administration’s policies.
Call for Judicial Review
Renowned Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the need for the courts to sort out the legal controversies surrounding Ken Paxton. Allowing the judicial system to play its rightful role ensures fairness and due process prevail. Rather than hastily jumping to conclusions, it is essential to let the legal system assess the validity of the allegations leveled against Paxton.
The impeachment proceedings against Ken Paxton have been fraught with questionable testimonies, a politically motivated investigation, ignored exonerating evidence, and a potential agenda of political retribution. It is crucial to consider these factors before passing judgment. The courts should play a vital role in evaluating the legal controversies surrounding Paxton, ensuring fairness and justice prevail. It is imperative to preserve the principles of due process and uphold the rights of all individuals, regardless of their political affiliations.
While population collapse is an environmentalist’s dream, it is an unfolding nightmare for the rest of humanity.
Demography nerds assiduously follow the data popping up about fast-ageing societies, their loss of dynamism and prospects of population collapse. With each successive generation significantly smaller than the last, we know where we’re headed. While population collapse is an environmentalist’s dream, it is an unfolding nightmare for humanity at large. The world’s economic engine, the Global North, is already shrinking.
That’s not gloom and doom, folks, just the facts.
This puzzles the pundits to no end. The web is alight with nonstop prattle about urbanization, birth control, economics and myriad other material factors. These are but symptoms of a deeper malaise. When a society doesn’t reproduce in the long term, it comes down to social and personal priorities. Those priorities reflect fundamental values that will not change short of a religious revival or spiritual rebirth.
Demography is an incredibly interesting field of study, and I’ve just stumbled across an essay on the subject that blew me away. It is by futurist Adam Van Buskirk, who is not only aware of the demographic conundrum, but also understands how it has come about and where it is going. I highly recommend his most thought-provoking essay, “Industrial Civilization Needs a Biological Future,” that recently appeared in Palladium.
As a futurist, Van Buskirk is enthusiastic about high-tech stuff, and laments that low fertility will eventually impede (and even halt) technological progress. True enough, but that is well down the list of why not having enough children is problematic. I’d gladly give up the gadgets if it meant reviving the family.
Van Buskirk wants to save “industrial civilization.” At this point I’ll settle for saving civilization period, industrial or not.
You can say much in 5100 words and Van Buskirk does not disappoint. His trenchant insights on Modernity are most unusual coming from a techno-geek:
[I]ndustrial modernity as we know it shows an extraordinary propensity to consume those most central to its own functioning. Modernity eats its own children, both native and adopted, both in its original lands and everywhere it spreads…
At the same time that technological evolution seems poised for a quantum leap, the very same system that produced these marvels appears to be burning up its crucial human capital like fuel in a furnace. Industrial society is evolving to a state where its original populations are super-aged, shrinking, and mostly extinct. Those who remain are increasingly only concerned with importing and managing labor from the remaining underdeveloped reservations, in an attempt to keep the lights on a bit longer and assure some degree of comfort.
Later he addresses demography’s $64,000 question:
Why are the most affluent societies that have ever existed on Earth unable to perform the most basic possible task of maintaining their numbers? The explanation is simple and you already know it. Humans seek status and wealth, and current Western or Westernized societies do not confer either one for having children.
This is perhaps the starkest exposition I have seen about globalism-on-steroids and where it is taking us. It’s a biological Ponzi scheme of sorts: When we run out of monetized human beings – something for which no amount of artificial intelligence can compensate – a day of reckoning will be upon us.
Are we in for a Brave New World scenario? If you’ve read Huxley’s novel, remember “Bokanovsky’s Process” and the “Central London Hatching and Conditioning Center.”
While Von Buskirk lays bare the consequences of our nascent brave new world, he also understands something that eludes most gadget-happy techno-nerds, and that is the critical role of religious faith:
Simply practicing any religion, with weekly attendance at services, raises fertility to about replacement level. Women who attend services weekly have a TFR of 2.1, while women who report never attending church have an extremely low TFR of only 1.3.
Among relatively large religious groups, Mormons report the largest family size, at 2.8 children, followed by Muslims at 2.76 children per woman. Orthodox, Protestant, and Catholic Christians all fall around 2.1, which is at least replacement-level fertility.
There are also smaller high-fertility religious groups, such as the Amish and Haredi Jews, who average about seven children per family.
Over time people of faith could become numerically dominant. At that point, according to Van Buskirk, “the industrial modernity that drives the demographic decline will itself cease to be dominant.” So we’re headed for a world of robust families without high-tech? If that is the way forward for survival of the species, so be it. Didn’t the Good Book have something to say about “The meek shall inherit the earth?”
He also expresses an interesting view about reproduction:
Human beings have a biological instinct for sex and even for parenting, but seemingly not for reproduction as such. Because sex can and has been de-linked from reproduction, and child substitutes like dogs can provide an outlet for the parenting instinct, within an advanced civilization the question of reproduction is ultimately an ideological one. [Emphasis added]
Now I disagree that there is no “biological instinct” for reproduction. The whole of creation revolves around the reproductive instinct. I remember as a young’un when ruttin’ season began. That’s when the bucks (male deer) go on the rut and mark their turf, scraping the bark off trees with their antlers. That drive to reproduce comes naturally. But in the Modern Era, homo sapiens, brimming with a surfeit of Age of Reason “wisdom,” can tinker with Mother Nature but not master it. That critical distinction is lost on those addicted to the toxic elixir of hubris, mammon worship and technological progress.
And this business of “child substitutes like dogs” befuddles the heck out of me. I’m an inveterate “dogs welcome, people tolerated” type, and prefer canine company to that of any number of people folk. But I’ve never confused my canine affinity with parental instinct. However, there are enough folks who do, so much so that even Pope Francis saw fit to weigh in:
The other day, I was talking about the demographic winter that we have today … many couples do not have children because they do not want to, or they have just one — but they have two dogs, two cats.
Yes, dogs and cats take the place of children. Yes, it’s funny, I understand, but it is the reality, and this denial of fatherhood and motherhood diminishes us, takes away humanity.
And there is something else the Pontiff likely knows that Mr. Van Buskirk points out: “[W]ithin an advanced civilization the question of reproduction is ultimately an ideological one.” Sadly, he is correct. Ideology has supplanted belief in the transcendent. This is the fruit of modernity’s master-of-the-universe syndrome. Every religious tradition anywhere includes some variant of the Biblical “Be fruitful and multiply.” Funny how that came about. No, it is not the result of some right-wing conspiracy. It is something larger than ourselves.
Genuinely precipitous population decline has yet to kick in but is coming soon. Per Hemingway, so many things happen “gradually, then suddenly.” Any respectable futurist should understand that.

American culture has become obsessed with sexual identity confusion. This obsession has affected almost every aspect of public life, from sports (in a multitude of ways) to retail companies to beer. It has become such an obsession that a massive swath of corporate America will soon transform their branding into the symbol of this obsession for an entire month.
Most importantly, this obsession has diminished our souls and the very essence of what it means to be human. We are currently about a decade into this culture-wide phenomenon. Lest we settle into seeing this situation as the new normal, it’s important to keep front and center how tragic this sexual identity obsession truly is — it presents a grave misunderstanding of the body and a diminishment of life’s highest goods. We desperately need a way forward out of obsession and into true freedom.
A single verse in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible reveals the essence of human life: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).
From this verse comes a limitless well of truth from which to draw. A groundbreaking understanding of this truth began to develop in 1979, when Pope John Paul II began delivering a series of 129 individual addresses that would later collectively become known as the “Theology of the Body.” The central idea of this theology can be summed up here: “The body, in fact, and it alone, is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and the divine.” In other words, the body reveals not only the physical person but also the image of the invisible God, as stated in Genesis.
John Paul further declared that “[the body] was created to transfer in the visible reality of the world the invisible mystery hidden since time immemorial in God, and thus be a sign of it.” In other words, the maleness and femaleness of the human person are indissoluble aspects of God that He chose to reveal through the created body.
Indeed, our maleness and femaleness go to the very core of who we are — every cell of our bodies possess either a male or female pair of chromosomes. But the goodness of our bodies goes far beyond merely the physical aspect, as beautiful as that is. We have been created out of an outpouring of generous love of the Trinity and have been adopted through Christ (Romans 8:14-17) as sons and daughters. Our bodies ultimately reveal that we are male sons and female daughters of a loving Father.
All that God has created is infused — filled to the brim — with meaning. This is why we can marvel at the intricacy of a flower, or the truth held in a beautiful painting, or the incomparable goodness of a delicious meal. So too are our bodies filled with immeasurable meaning.
Therefore, when we “identify” as a sex other than what we are, or as “non-binary,” or as some other sexual identity, we are selling ourselves far short of our maleness or femaleness. Our chosen “identity” becomes vacant and stripped of meaning, and we render ourselves androgynous. Rather, it is in and through our male and female bodies that we experience the world around us, and most importantly, our relationship with God our Father.
It is in this way that our bodies and all of visible creation point to the invisible reality of God. When we fully realize the boundless potential of our embodied male and female souls, we will be set free of confusion about our sexual identity, knowing that we have been loved into existence just as we are — in the image of God.

How did they ever get this through? Our nation’s colleges and universities today are radioactive wastelands of far-Left indoctrination. Demonization and defamation of patriots and others who tell truths about issues Leftists cover with lies is common to the point of being routine and taken for granted. A central element of this propaganda is bogus psychoanalysis purporting to show that to stand for freedom and love America is a clear sign of derangement, while believing that men can become women and that socialism is a viable political system are healthy indications of sanity. In that atmosphere, it’s astounding that this academic study was published at all. But it was, and it shows the truth: Leftism is driving people nuts. Literally.
The Left has been weaponizing psychology against patriots for decades. As far back as 1964, a magazine that called itself Fact but was actually unacquainted with anything deserving of the name published a cover story entitled “1,189 Psychiatrists Say Goldwater is Psychologically Unfit To Be President!” Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater sued for libel and won, as none of the psychiatrists involved in the article had ever actually met him; they were all diagnosing him from a distance based on their political proclivities. This new study of the psychology of Leftism, however, is nothing like such political manipulation and hackery; it’s a genuine examination of the effect that Leftism has on a healthy mind.
The New York Postreported Thursday that “Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism, according to a new study published to the peer-reviewed journal Current Psychology.” Anyone on the Right could have told you that after even the most cursory contact with Leftists, but its confirmation in an academic study is a major surprise. The study’s authors state: “Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism.” Of course. What else is it but narcissism to think that one is sufficiently knowledgeable and wise to dictate to others how they live, and control their choices so that they do not stray beyond what the Leftist authoritarians consider to be acceptable bounds?
Study authors Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams call this Leftist narcissism the “dark-ego-vehicle principle” and explain: “According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities — such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits — are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality.” What? You mean Leftists aren’t really interested in social justice and equality at all, but simply use such rhetoric to fool the uninformed, while actually pursuing their own “ego-focused needs”? Of course. Any examination of the Soviet Union or any other Marxist state, with its wealthy elites proclaiming themselves the vanguard of the proletariat and living high on the backs of the poor while proclaiming themselves their saviors from economic injustice, makes that abundantly clear.
The study adds that “certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.” Right, that’s an academic way to say that Leftists love to engage in hypocritical virtue-signaling in order to manipulate others.
And the hypocrisy is indeed heavy: “Social justice is often used as a guise for these activists to behave unhinged, the research noted.” What’s more, a Leftist activist “might declare anyone to be ‘old fashioned’ who is opposing their own ‘progressive values,’ strive to suppress free speech to regulate the expression of right-wing beliefs in educational institutions, and even endorse the use of violence to reach their own political goals.” Of course. Because they think they know better, and must impose their superior knowledge upon the racist, redneck, right-wing yahoos who have the temerity to resist their wisdom and prefer their own stupidity.
This study doesn’t tell patriots anything they didn’t know already, but it is remarkable for its singularity, and for the very fact that it exists, and was able to be published in today’s academic environment. It could conceivably even represent a crack in the edifice, and evidence that the kneejerk Leftism that dominates American academia is finally beginning to recede. But for that, we’ll have to see how many years it will be before a similar study is published.

The production deal was signed in 2020 amid the BLM riots that laid waste to many U.S. cities and resulted in as much as $2 billion in destruction nationally. The deal was expected to produce both scripted and non-scripted content, focusing on reparations and other forms of “social justice.” But in the end, Cullors was apparently too busy maintaining her multiple homes to get around to creating racist propaganda.
“The studio signed an overall deal with BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors at some point in 2020. Deal expired at end of October 2022,” a source told the New York Post. “The deal unfortunately did not result in any produced shows.”
Self-described “trained Marxist” Cullors resigned from BLM in 2021 over allegations she was spending foundation money for her own personal use. BLM now appears to be heading toward bankruptcy with an $8.5 million budgetary deficit.
Bankruptcy? Maybe all those woke corporate elites should question where their hundreds of millions of dollars in donations went.
On May 27, 2021, Cullors announced that she would be stepping down as executive director of the BLM Foundation the following day. She claimed that her resignation had been in the works for more than a year and was unrelated to criticism she had received from conservatives vis-à-vis her enormous wealth and her various property acquisitions. “Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don’t operate off of what the right thinks about me,” Cullors said.

In case you missed it, there is a rather large and dedicated group of people in the US who so despise our Constitution that they are trying diligently to “change” it by means of a “Convention of States” (COS) that would allow the US Congress to select a number of delegates to attend a new Constitutional Convention for that purpose. They say this Convention is needed to add much needed amendments to the current constitution. But, wait a minute, don’t we already have a number of amendments which were added to the Constitution using the normal procedure in the US Congress following the process written into the current Constitution?
And, by change, what does this large and dedicated group mean? Well, they say there is a need for a “balanced budget” amendment which would force the Congress to run the US government like a successful business, you know, where revenues and expenditures sort of end up, like, equal, maybe even a little surplus for a rainy day? Like as in, you do not incur more debt than you can possibly repay when running a business? My, what a novel concept. Why didn’t someone think of that a few hundred years ago?
They also say there is a need for a “term limit” amendment which would force all the senators and congress people to actually go out and get, like, you know, regular jobs after they finish service to their fellow citizens, spending years writing useless laws and other such neat stuff, or actually ‘retire’ like many ‘regular’ people do when they have accumulated just enough money to retire and live in abject poverty.
But wait, all the senators and congress people who have served even one term usually end up with so much ‘accumulated money’ they do not NEED to live in abject poverty. They, of course, will oppose the much touted term limits because they want to remain in Congress for 40-50 years so they can accumulate enough money to buy their own country and do their part to control the world.
I have a suggestion: Cut all the 535 congressional representatives salaries by at least 75%. You would not need a term limit to get them out of office, they would trample each other trying to squeeze through the exit doors.
The Big Brouhaha
The back and forth word-war over the COS has occupied the minds of many normal critical-thinking Americans who see the move as a means to eliminate our current Constitution or replace it with one of several that are already “pre-written” and waiting for the Congressional roll call vote on its adoption.
Those who oppose the COS obviously see the move as a hostile takeover of the nation, eventually turning it over to an even worse “large and dedicated group” of people who envision communism as our “New World Order” with the majority of us “owning nothing and being happy”. Yeah, good luck with that one.
I have been trying to follow the many nuances of the arguments for and against the COS, and will admit I am somewhat confused about the whole thing.
The much-touted need for a “balanced budget” amendment sounds sort of like an oxymoron. The very idea of a budget is a series of calculations estimating revenues versus expenses so that a “balance” can be struck between the two. The very idea that the US Congress needs the term written into the Constitution is like a business owner needing a document instructing him or her that, in order to run a successful business, revenues and expenses “should” match, at least somewhat. If anyone who starts a business actually needs such a document, he or she has ABSOLUTELY no business starting a business. You would think that all those pointy-toed shoe-wearing lawyers who occupy nearly all the 535 seats in the US Congress would know and understand such a basic concept of a successful business.
I would bet that all those 535 lawyers do NOT run their ‘household budgets’ the way they run the United States government, so what is the difference? Oh yeah, the money they so freely throw around the world is not THEIR money, so they do not feel the pain of being $32 trillion in debt. Hey, their $174,000 salaries are not endangered by their excessive and uncontrolled spending. Kinda makes you think, if they can maintain a balanced household budget, they should be able to use the same common sense running the US budget, eh?
Now if there was a ‘large and dedicated group’ of Americans who would pump ‘em up and actually demand that the elected (really?) congressional representatives do what they are (over)paid to do, which is follow the Constitution to the letter and run the US government as though it was a money-making enterprise, there would be no need to even consider another amendment to it and there would especially be NO need to replace it.
The Perfect Law
The US Constitution is called “The Law of the Land”, and was the foundation of ultimate liberty for many years in America. For much of the past two hundred years, many nations and their peoples have marveled at our Constitution and desired to have it as a model to establish their own foundation of liberty in their nations.
“But whoso looketh into the perfectlawofliberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” (James 1:25). James said that God’s word is the “Perfect Law of Liberty” and that sounds a great deal like our beloved Constitution; however, the key to that verse in James having any value for us is in the command to “look into” it and continue to look therein and then become a doer of it and not just a hearer. That entails a diligent study of the information “being looked into”.
But how many Americans, especially those of the newer generations, even know what our Constitution says, and understand what it means to them and their liberty?
The hullabaloo over the COS may be much ado about nothing, and should be totally unnecessary. True, The COS, if initiated, would allow certain groups of people to determine the validity of the current US Constitution and decide whether to add certain amendments to the current one or replace it with an entirely new one.
In either case, the result of a COS, if initiated, would likely be seen as a ‘confirmation’ to the large and dedicated group of people that their current handling (think totally disregarding) of the Constitution, justifies their current behavior (acting as though it did not exist). Such ‘confirmation’ would never be needed if those who were supposed to represent their constituents would simply adhere to the tenets of the current Constitution, you know, the one they swore to ‘uphold and defend’, so help them God?
But wait, isn’t that what, from their standpoint, it’s all about, getting that confirmation ‘from the people’ of the validity of their actions? I seriously doubt that, since they have not actually cared what the common folk of this nation have thought for many decades. If they did, they would hang their heads in shame and repent for breaking their ‘uphold and defend’ oaths, year after year after year, term after term after term.
We still have the original Constitution in place and of course, our government and all its bloated bureaucracies pay close attention to it and adhere to it completely, right? Hah! Our government leaders have acted for years as though the Constitution never existed, even though it was covered, under glass, in the National Archives and protected from ambient air, excess humidity, direct light and anything else that might “degrade its physical condition”. Our current crop of politicians behave as though the Constitution is a mere annoyance, something they would like to see done away with.
The only protection our Constitution lacked was from the threat posed by evil, greedy and lawless people who never cared one whit for the document that was written to tell the world what this new nation of individual states truly was.
What we currently have is a bunch of politicians whose sole purpose for “being in politics’ is the monetary gain they can realize by conducting our government as though the Constitution never existed. Unless the Constitution exists in the hearts and minds of the majority of “true Americans”, it matters not whether it still hides in the national Archives.
Power of the Constitution
The document itself has absolutely NO power to dictate how the government is run, how politicians conduct the business of our nation, nor the moral behavior of our citizens. That power still resides with those for whom the Constitution was written, the ones who now suffer from the Unconstitutional decisions being constantly made in Congress and the actions of the ones demanding it be changed or discarded.
But one thing is clear, and is likely believed, albeit secretly, by almost everyone in this country, and that is: JUSTICE MATTERS. No, it even goes far beyond that; without justice, there can be no civilization, no peace, and not much of a future.
Kathleen Marquardt, in her recent article titled, “A German Tells It Like It Is, Listen!”, quotes Hans-Jurgen Geese, the author of a brilliant message, which clearly presents undeniable ‘simple truths that have been known for hundreds of years’. Geese said: “Freedom and ignorance are incompatible. Therefore, our schools and universities are becoming idiotic institutions. There cannot be a liberal constitution with immoral people.If justice is lost, then nothing in the Constitution matters. Then all is lost. Even human rights are no longer worth anything”.
That last sentence echoes these words, penned more than two hundred years ago by the second President of the United States, John Adams: “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
At this moment, we are at a critical place in the history of the United States of America, where the Department of Justice (DOJ), led by the highest-ranking law enforcement officer in the US, Attorney General Merrick Garland, chooses to allow the federal agencies under his direction to weaponize their agencies and agents in order to punish anyone they deem to have violated “their rules”, regardless of whether the US Constitution supports their weaponized actions. This begs the question whether anyone in the DOJ, or any of the weaponized agencies under the umbrella of the DOJ, has actually read the Constitution, or having read it simply decided it is no longer relevant, and so they ignore it.
The drivel that emanates from the US DOJ is thinly veiled political warfare, conducted by those in the power seats against those with NO seat and NO power. The morality of the people for whom our Constitution was written now seems to have taken a very long vacation; and when morality leaves, justice soon follows. At this moment, real justice seems to have taken a long holiday, possibly a permanent one.
No Constitution Without Justice
At this point in time, there is NO system of justice operating effectively for the people in the United States.
Will true justice ever return to, or reside in, the United States of America? It appears doubtful.
Until it does, it matters little whether the Constitution is amended or terminated by those large and dedicated groups who so feverishly desire it. After all, why SHOULD it matter? Nearly all the 535 Congress people do not adhere to it as the “Law of the Land” anyway.
With the current political and cultural chaos in the US, the current status of the Constitution is simply that of an old piece of paper or parchment carefully stored in the National Archives. Beyond that, and until there is justice for all in the United States, it has little power or authority.
As Hans-Jurgen Geese so eloquently stated: “If justice is lost, then nothing in the Constitution matters. Then all is lost. Even human rights are no longer worth anything”.
I certainly do not wish to denigrate the valiant efforts of all those who oppose a COS, I admire their tenacity and longing for justice and a strict adherence to the Constitution and wish them great success, but until we truly see a renewal of, and return to, Godly morality among the citizenry that forces a semblance of adherence to the Law of the land on the part of all those who we supposedly elected to their offices, I have serious doubts that anything positive will result. The words of Hans-Jurgen Geese resonate in my ears and my spirit: “If justice is lost, then nothing in the Constitution matters.
We can only pray that reason and common sense eventually prevail over the political madness now so prevalent in our nation. If God deems to hear our prayers and answer them in our favor, we may still have a country with a Constitution that means something.

In the face of an impending impeachment vote, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton symbolizes unwavering conservatism and a relentless fighter for our values. The allegations and articles of impeachment brought against him by a politically motivated committee led by a handful of Republicans cannot overshadow his exceptional track record and dedication to upholding conservative principles.
Upholding Conservative Principles
Attorney General Ken Paxton has built a legacy based on his unwavering commitment to conservative principles. He has fearlessly taken on the grave issue of voter fraud, defending Texas against the federal government overreach and the foundation of our Republic. The Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, which documents 730 cases of voter fraud in Texas since 1979, attests to the importance of Paxton’s tireless efforts in safeguarding the electoral process. By prosecuting these cases, he ensures that every lawful vote counts and that our democratic values remain intact.
Paxton’s office stance on categorizing sex-change operations and puberty blockers as “child abuse” under Texas law demonstrates his unwavering commitment to protecting our children. By advocating for responsible decision-making and safeguarding their innocence, he upholds the rights prioritizing parental rights and the well-being of our most vulnerable. As Texans, we must support Paxton in his efforts to defend our children and ensure their future is filled with hope, happiness, and the chance to grow into the individuals they were meant to be.
Unyielding Opposition to Federal Overreach
Attorney General Paxton’s well-publicized feuds with the federal government, both under the Obama and Biden administrations, epitomize his unwavering commitment to keeping Texans safe. He is one of the most dynamic of the states’ attorneys general in opposing the unconstitutional overreach of the Biden administration. Paxton has boldly challenged policies that overstep the bounds of federal authority. His involvement in legal battles to scrutinize the 2020 presidential election results reflects his unwavering dedication to upholding the principles of democracy and ensuring that every legal vote is counted.
A person of his outstanding principles is urgently needed to continue the fight against Washington’s open border policy and unconstitutional vaccine mandates.
Unmasking the Motivations:
However, it is disheartening to witness a few unhinged Republicans spearheading this impeachment effort against Paxton. It raises questions about their true motivation and threatens to undermine the credibility of the Texas House. Are they blinded by personal vendettas or politically motivated? It is crucial to remember that the consequences of this deceitful impeachment attempt reach far beyond Paxton’s tenure. They taint the reputation of the Republican Party and cast doubt on its commitment to traditional values.
A Call to Action
In the face of these phony allegations, witch hunts, and innuendoes, let us not falter in supporting Attorney General Ken Paxton. Voters must rise to the occasion in defense of Ken Paxton. We, the Texans, elected him not once, not twice, but three times amidst these challenging times.
A Few Questions to Ask of Ourselves:
Is it not crucial to ensure that our pursuit of justice remains untainted by partisan interests? Will this sham of impeachment lose the credibility and unity of the Texas House and the Republican Party? Should we value the representation of these important perspectives outside our party? Can we afford to lose a strong advocate who has fearlessly fought against unconstitutional policies that threaten our liberties?
It is now imperative that we, true conservatives, pause and deeply reflect upon these probing questions. We must rise above the clamor of partisan politics and engage in thoughtful introspection. Let us explore the significance of these inquiries and seek the truth beneath the surface. Doing so can reaffirm our commitment to justice, integrity, and the law.
The impeachment attempt against him, led by fellow Republicans, is a testament to the misguided actions of some within our party. We must rally behind Paxton, highlighting his exemplary record. As the impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Ken Paxton loom, a glaring truth emerges: this is another politically motivated fraud reminiscent of the baseless impeachment attempts against former President Trump. It is no coincidence that Paxton, hailed as one of the most conservative Attorney Generals Texas has ever seen, finds himself in the crosshairs of fellow Republicans who are determined to silence his unwavering support for President Trump. Tomorrow, they plan to orchestrate this impeachment charade. We ask the lawmakers to say no to this sham impeachment.

Ron Desantis will make a great presidential candidate…in 2028.
I say that as someone who migrated to the free state of Florida just before the 2018 election, thinking Desantis was a shoe-in, and learning that the race between a common sense Republican with an honorable military background and a no-nothing Socialist was neck and neck.
I was terrified that my decision to move my family was about to become a huge mistake. But God is great. And that was not his will.
Fast forward to 2022: Desantis won re-election by nearly twenty points, and the pundits anointed him a political genius.
But Governor Desantis has never been subjected to the slings and arrows of the Democratic corporate media and their allies in the Deep State.
Go after Disney for woke idiocy? Sure. Go after the Deep State that wants to demolish America, good luck. Can Ron stand up to that? Perhaps. A vigorous primary debate, which I encourage, will help to reveal the size of his backbone.
Donald Trump has stood up to violent, irrational, unending assaults from the spirit of Evil, the spirit that truly wants America as we know it to cease to exist. Can Ron stand the heat? Can he withstand the scrutiny of his personal life that cares nothing for truth? Can he withstand serial lies and witnesses to lies about his military service? Or to lies about his marriage, his faith, his children?
Maybe he can. Let’s see.
But don’t underestimate the utter viciousness and evil of the Deep State. As Sen. Chuck Schumer warned Trump shortly before his first inauguration, if you challenge the Deep State they can get you “six ways to Sunday.” As they indeed showed with Donald Trump.
This week we learned extraordinary new details about the Chinese penetration of our high tech enterprises and our military. What most astonishes me is how the corporate media is suddenly pretending to be astonished that the Chinese are trying to steal our secrets and penetrate our critical infrastructure.
I investigated the Chinese Communist efforts to penetrate America’s political, military, media, and capital markets for the American Spectator in the second half of the 1990s.
I compiled those stories in an inexpensive paperback, Selling Out America, which details how Bill Clinton, paid off by the Chinese Communist Party, enabled U.S. industry to help the Chicoms become a world superpower. We lopped decades off their gynocidal plan, all thanks to Clinton and Democrat politicians and their allies in Silicon Valley. You really should read Selling Out America. You’ll be astonished how predictable all this was.

Through auditing the voter roll databases, obtained directly from state and local boards of elections, we have uncovered millions of invalid registrations, hundreds of thousands of votes cast by legally invalid registrations, hundreds of thousands of votes castpresence of algorithmic patterns we reverse engineered from within the state’s own official records. To be absolutely clear, there is no known innocent purpose or explanation for why these algorithms…..
It’s not hard to conduct forensic audits. There were NONE conducted in the 2020 election.
By: Wendi Strauch Mahoney, May 25, 2023 By: DC Uncovered, May 26, 2023:
A peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Information Warfare (JIW) confirms a “Loss of Control” breach has occurred in the NYSVoter Database. A peer-reviewed paper of their results in a respected journal is a hard-won and “significant milestone,” according to Marly Hornik, Executive Director of the NY Citizens Audit.
The audit of the voter rolls was led by Marly Hornik and Andrew Paquette, Ph.D., Director of Research, who submitted the paper to JIW. Paquette “co-founded the International Game Architecture and Design Academy (now BUAS) in the Netherlands after a career in the feature film and video game industries. He received his Ph.D. from King’s College, London, in 2018 for a thesis on the development of expertise.”
In July 2021, Hornik and Paquette assembled a group of volunteers in New York that has grown to around 2000 individuals statewide to investigate the state’s voter registration rolls. Hornik presented the group’s preliminary findings to attendees at The Pit, sponsored by True the Vote, in August 2022.
In her recent letter to New York citizens, Hornik explains the seriousness of the group’s findings:
“Through auditing the voter roll databases, obtained directly from state and local boards of elections, we have uncovered millions of invalid registrations, hundreds of thousands of votes cast by legally invalid registrations, hundreds of thousands of votes cast by legally invalid registrants, massive vote discrepancies, and the clear presence of algorithmic patterns we reverse engineered from within the state’s own official records.
To be absolutely clear, there is no known innocent purpose or explanation for why these algorithms exist. I am told by cyber-intelligence experts they indicate a ‘Total Loss of Control’ data breach, the most severe kind of data breach recognized by our federal government. The law says it renders the affect….
NY Citizens Audit organizations found through research that in 2020 general elections NY State had 338K more votes than voters. Also, NYCA found 1.1M unique individuals whose identities were cloned to create 2.4M registrations, a major scale identity theft. pic.twitter.com/PI7P89BiOC

“Ron DeSantis’s ultra-MAGA Florida isn’t safe for people of color, LGBTQ+ people, or even multi-billion dollar corporations,” Hillary wrote, providing screenshot images of articles detailing the travel advisory, as well as Gov. Ron DeSantis’s ongoing battle with Disney.
DeSantis recently signed a series of anti-groomer bills passed by the legislature, designed to protect children from the radical woke transgender agenda continually pushed by the far-left.
“Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color,” reads the NAACP travel advisory. Ironically, organization’s chairman Leon W. Russell lives in Florida.
“True leadership is being willing to do what you ask others to do… time to step up and MOVE. If you think our state is so bad, the @FloridaGOP will help with moving costs,” Republican Party of Florida Chairman Christian Ziegler said.
Clinton Was Willing to Accept a Massive Foreign Donation to Her Foundation, from a Source Notorious for Its Human Rights Abuses
In a January 18, 2015 email to John Podesta and Robby Mook, Huma Abedin wrote that the King of Morocco – a nation where human rights abuses were widespread – had agreed to give the Clinton Foundation $12 million in exchange for a meeting with Hillary; this occurred 6 months before Morocco acquired weapons from the United states. Wrote Abedin: “Just to give you some context, the condition upon which the Moroccans agreed to host the meeting was her participation. If hrc [Hillary Rodham Clinton] was not part if it, meeting was a non-starter. CGI [Clinton Global Initiative] also wasn’t pushing for a meeting in Morocco and it wasn’t their first choice. This was HRC’s idea, our office approached the Moroccans and they 100 percent believe they are doing this at her request. The King has personally committed approx $12 million both for the endowment and to support the meeting. It will break a lot of china to back out now when we had so many opportunities to do it in the past few months. She created this mess and she knows it.”

What do Major League Baseball and drag queens who dress as nuns have in common?
It is a question that is yet to be answered.
Even so, the two have been on a collision course this week as the Los Angeles Dodgers first invited, then disinvited, then re-invited the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ — a “leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns” — to their Pride Night festivities scheduled for next month.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence promote themselves as a society devoted to “community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment”. But with a motto like “Go forth and sin some more”, their sacrilegious use of ecclesiastical dress, and deliberately offensive stunts like crucifix pole dancing and “hunky Jesus” contests, their goal appears to be mockery, not “ministry”.
In early May, the LA Dodgers had announced they would be honouring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence with a Community Hero Award at the team’s 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night for the “life-saving work that they have done tirelessly for decades”.
People of sound mind, Catholics chief among them, voiced strong opposition to the Dodgers’ promotion of the Christophobic group.
In response, in a show of sanity rarely seen in these sex-obsessed days, the LA Dodgers reversed course, announcing their decision not to honour the anti-Catholic group at next month’s event.
“This year, as part of a full night of programming, we invited a number of groups to join us,” the team said in a statement. “We are now aware that our inclusion of one group in particular — The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — in this year’s Pride Night has been the source of some controversy.”
But the burst of common sense was not to prevail. By Monday night, the pro-drag queen lobby (yup, that is a thing) exerted so much pressure that the Dodgers re-invited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, complete with the obligatory struggle-session confession.
In their statement released on Twitter, the Dodgers wrote, “After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.”
“In the weeks ahead, we will continue to work with our LGBTQ+ partners to better educate ourselves, find ways to strengthen the ties that bind, and use our platform to support all our fans who make up the diversity of the Dodgers Family,” the mea culpa concluded.
The team’s flip-flopping reveals the deep divide at the heart of America’s culture wars. Moreover, their final decision indicates which side has the upper hand.
The Dodgers saga is a reminder that when religion vacates the public square, it is not secularism or neutrality that takes its place, but irreligion, even sacrilege.
Nun costumes aside, the bizarre centering of drag queens in the culture wars is itself an irreligious act. It is an attempt to abolish and mock the natural and divinely-instituted sex binary.
But it is a tiresome and a tired mockery, a sad excuse for “art” and “freedom” in a culture that has lost its way. It is the death throes of what philosopher Philip Rieff dubbed an “anti-culture” hellbent on its own destruction and the defaming of all that is good and beautiful and true.
These observations are no black pill. On the contrary, they are the light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.
In practical terms, if enough LA Dodgers fans respond the way Bud Light and Target customers did to those companies’ trans madness, there will yet be hope for our culture.
