Biden ‘Abandons Pregnant Mothers to Suffer Alone’ from Abortion Pills: 75 Members of Congress

A flurry of legislation, executive orders, and lawsuits have volleyed back and forth between the Biden administration, which seeks to protect the abortion industry, and pro-life advocates attempting to protect unborn children and their mothers. As the Biden administration expanded the distribution of abortion-inducing drugs, 75 pro-life lawmakers have demanded the FDA take pills off the market altogether. As Biden’s executive actions tout expanding the distribution of abortion-inducing drugs as “essential to our [n]ation’s health,” litigators have threatened to take abortionists to state court and issued fresh warnings to corporations thinking of trafficking in life-ending drugs.

“We call on the FDA to remove mifepristone from the market, or, at minimum, promptly restore and further strengthen the initial basic health and safety requirements for abortion drugs, and cease permitting the mailing and shipping of abortion drugs in violation of [f]ederal criminal law,” wrote 75 members of Congress to the Biden administration’s Food and Drug Administration Commissioner, Robert Califf. The Biden administration’s new standard “abandons pregnant mothers to suffer alone, without proper medical evaluation or oversight, potentially life-threatening complications, which can include severe bleeding, infection, potential surgical intervention, and even death.”

It also “makes it easier for these drugs to fall into the hands of human traffickers or abusers, who may administer the drugs to pregnant mothers without their knowledge or consent,” wrote the coalition — 23 Senators and 52 U.S. representatives, led by Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) and Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio) — last Thursday. Ironically, by insisting abortion companies can mail abortion pills, “the FDA is, astonishingly, conditioning certification for pharmacies on their willingness to violate [f]ederal criminal law.”

This letter comes after 41 members of Congress chided Attorney General Merrick Garland that the Justice Department has “abdicated its Constitutional responsibility to enforce the law,” specifically the Comstock Act, which forbids mailing abortion-inducing drugs.

Shorn of their majority in the House of Representatives, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have increasingly advanced abortion-on-demand through a combination of executive action and bureaucratic inaction. “Members of our cabinet and our administration are now directed, as of the president’s order, to identify barriers to access” to pills that induce the death of unborn children “and to recommend actions” to facilitate their distribution nationwide, Harris told a crowd of abortionists and lobbyists in Tallahassee last Sunday, on what would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Biden’s memo directed AG Garland, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Xavier Becerra, and Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas to pursue “further efforts to protect access to” abortion. Biden also directed the Attorney General and the DHS secretary of Homeland Security “to consider actions … that would protect the safety and security of patients, providers, and third parties, and that would protect the security of pharmacies and other entities providing, dispensing, or delivering” abortion pills. “Defending and protecting [abortion] is essential to our [n]ation’s health, safety, and progress,” Biden wrote, before describing pro-life laws as “threats to the liberty” of Americans.

Congressional Republicans more closely reflect the public sentiment on abortion pills. Nearly all young voters — 91% of Gen Z and Gen Y registered voters — support requiring an abortionist to administer an ultrasound to protect mothers from ectopic pregnancies; 93% say abortionists should test women’s blood (RH) to protect women from future infertility; and 60% say the pills should be given in person to avoid them from falling into the hands of an abuser, according to a poll released this month by Students for Life of America. A previous KofC/Marist poll found that 63% of Americans oppose sending abortion-inducing pills through the mail.

“The Biden administration is trying to establish the FDA as the new Supreme Court with their regulations as the new Roe v. Wade. This abuse of power is not only an attack on states’ rights but is also an attack on common decency,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “Rest assured that 50 years after Roe v. Wade, pro-life Americans will not have the flawed and inhuman judgment of seven men replaced by the highly discredited Joe Biden.”

Biden notwithstanding, the FDA is an inauspicious vehicle to impose sweeping federal regulations. Nearly all (98%) of the rules issued by the FDA between 2001 and 2017 were unconstitutional, according to a report from the Pacific Legal Foundation.

Rather than rely on the White House to curb its own abuses, pro-life legislators and litigators at the state and federal levels have proposed laws and lawsuits to protect life from executive overreach.

On January 20, Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.) introduced the Teleabortion Prevention Act of 2023, which would require abortionists to perform an in-person examination of the mother before prescribing abortion-inducing drugs, be present when she ingests them, and schedule a follow-up visit to treat any complications.

“The abortion industry continues to exploit vulnerable women through the use of chemical abortions for profit, and they are dishonest about the impact of chemical abortion on women’s health. For years they have worked to remove key health and safety protocols that require an abortionist to physically examine the mother before administering these dangerous drugs,” said Connor Semelsberger, director of Federal Affairs at Family Research Council. “Thank you to Representative Good for standing up to protect both vulnerable women and their unborn children.”

Similarly, Reps. Kevin Hern (R-Okla.) and Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) introduced a bill to rescind the FDA’s loosening of women’s health protections on the distribution of abortion-inducing pills and prevent the agency from reverting to the lower standards in the future. This legislation “to nullify the final FDA rule that expands distribution of these drugs through telehealth and mail is urgently needed to save the lives of babies and their mothers,” said Kris Ullman, president of Eagle Forum.

Semelsberger agreed, “Despite what the Biden administration may claim, there is mounting evidence of just how dangerous do-it-yourself chemical abortions are to both unborn children and their mothers. The latest action by the FDA to put pharmacies on the front lines of distributing abortion pills — without any real concern for how this move will impact maternal health — shows just how politicized the FDA has become.”

“Thanks to pro-life leaders like Representatives Hern and Harshbarger, there is hope that this Congress will take back its role in providing oversight to the FDA and restore true health and safety measures for all Americans, including the unborn,” he concluded.

The Protect the UNBORN (Undo the Negligent Biden Orders Right Now) Act, introduced by Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.), would prevent the federal government from enforcing Biden’s abortion-expanding Executive Orders 14079 and 14076.

Aside from the federal government, 29 states place commonsense regulations on chemical abortion, which has a higher rate of dangerous interactions than surgical abortion; 18 require the abortionist to be present when the woman takes the pills. And the top lawyers in nearly half the country have promised additional action to protect the unborn from the Biden administration’s abortion pill regimen.

“The authority to regulate abortion lies with the people and their elected representatives. In our states, we prioritize the health and safety of women and children and our laws reflect this,” wrote the attorneys general of 22 states to FDA Commissioner Califf on January 13. “Our [s]tates will not yield to the [a]dministration’s radical pro-abortion policies.”

Wyoming State Senator Tim Salazar (R-Riverton) introduced SF 109, which would protect unborn children in the state from abortion pills. While the bill would not punish the mother, anyone who manufactures or dispenses abortion pills would face a $9,000 fine and up to six months in prison. If passed, the law would take effect July 1.

Finally, some have appealed to the private sector to follow its conscience — or its financial self-interest — by refusing to stock abortion-inducing drugs. FRC joined more than a dozen other national groups in signing letters asking Rite Aid and Walmart not to distribute abortion-inducing pills in their pharmacies. “We are grateful that, so far, Walmart Inc. has not followed the path of CVS and Walgreens in becoming, in effect, an abortion facility,” said Mary Szoch, director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council. “Pharmacies across the country should recognize that distributing these drugs is antithetical to their mission of providing medications that allow life to flourish.”

As of this writing, 53,218 people have signed FRC’s petition asking Walgreens and CVS, “Do Not Turn Your Pharmacies into Abortion Businesses!

Judicial Watch Sues Health and Human Services for Surgeon General Office Contact with Big Tech about COVID Vaccines

Washington, D.C. – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for communications and records of the Surgeon General’s Communications Director’s contact with social media companies regarding COVID-19 vaccines (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:23-cv-00113)).

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after HHS failed to respond adequately to a March 3, 2022, FOIA request for:

All records, including, but not limited to, electronic mail, texts, memoranda, and handwritten notes, of, regarding, referring, or relating to any efforts of Alexandria Phillips, Communications Director, Office of the Surgeon General, to contact any employee of Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, YouTube, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Pinterest concerning COVID-19 vaccines.

In 2021, the U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued a report titled “Confronting Health Misinformation” to “slow the spread of health misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond,” which called for censorship of speech about the vaccines and other COVID controversies:

Prioritize early detection of misinformation “super-spreaders” and repeat offenders. Impose clear consequences for accounts that repeatedly violate platform policies.

On March 3, 2022, Murthy demanded that the tech companies turn over information about individuals who spread COVID-19 misinformation:

In a formal notice, Murthy requested major tech platforms submit information about the prevalence and scale of COVID-19 misinformation on their sites, from social networks, search engines, crowdsourced platforms, e-commerce platforms and instant messaging systems.

“Biden’s Surgeon General is abusing his office to pressure Big Tech companies to censor Americans,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “This lawsuit aims to uncover the details of this government attack on the First Amendment.”

Judicial Watch recently filed suit for records of communications between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and social media sites regarding foreign influence in elections, as well as the Hunter Biden laptop story.

Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for all records of communications between the Cybersecurity and Information Security Agency , a division of DHS, and the Election Integrity Partnership , which was created to flag online election content for censorship and suppression.

In September 2022, Judicial Watch sued the Secretary of State of the State of California for having YouTube censor a Judicial Watch election integrity video.

In April 2021, Judicial Watch published documents revealing how California state officials pressured social media companies (Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube)) to censor posts about the 2020 election.

In May 2021, Judicial Watch revealed documents showing that Iowa state officials pressured social media companies Twitter and Facebook to censor posts about the 2020 election.

In July 2021 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) records showed that Facebook coordinated closely with the CDC to control the COVID narrative and “misinformation” and that over $3.5 million in free advertising given to the CDC by social media companies.

DOJ indicts two Antifa-linked individuals from Florida for Jane’s Revenge vandalism

A federal grand jury indicted two Florida residents with alleged links to Antifa this week on charges of violating the FACE Act. According to a Justice Department press release, Caleb Freestone and Amber Smith-Stewart, both in their 20s, along with other unidentified co-conspirators, conspired to prevent access to “reproductive services health facilities.” Freestone and Smith-Stewart are accused of vandalizing a Winterhaven pregnancy resource center with slogans including “If abortions aren’t safe neither are you,” and threats such as, “We are coming for you.”

The press release made no mention of the rash of attacks conducted in the name of Pro-abortion anarchist group Jane’s Revenge although graffiti from Winterhaven incident clearly referenced the group.

According to social media posts identified by Antifa Watch, which maintains a database of individuals charged with rioting and other violence linked to Antifa, both Freestone and Smith-Stewart have self-identified as being affiliated with Miami-Dade Antifa. This would seem to confirm previous analytical judgements that Jane’s Revenge represents a front for a network of anarcho-communist affinity groups likely linked to Antifa and not a brand new organization.

The Department of Justice’s decision not to openly address the identity and nature of the conspiracy to attack pro-life pregnancy resource centers is unfortunate but not surprising as it has largely declined to recognize the organized nature of left-wing extremism for some time.

The decision to charge the Florida suspects with violations of the FACE Act, a federal civil rights violation which the DOJ has aggressively used against non-violent pro-life groups in recent months also suggests an element of politicized decision-making, creating a false equivalency between Jane’s Revenge, which has conducted multiple arsons and issued terroristic threats, and non-violent demonstrations.

The FACE act does carry potentially severe criminal penalties, including up to 12 years in prison. Florida state law enforcement officials might consider whether there is also justification for indicting suspects on state charges which reflect the violent and terroristic nature of the threats made in this case, particularly if DOJ should either fail to successfully prosecute the case or if it seeks a reduced sentence, as it has been accused of doings in other cases involving left-wing extremism.

This is the first case related to Jane’s Revenge where the DOJ has successfully identified and indicted a suspect or suspects.

Covid Injections, Toxic By Design

UPDATE: On January 24, 2023 Katherine Watt was an attendee at a press conference that discussed the ongoing emergency use rollout of bioweapons being marketed as Covid vaccines. She discussed the legal framework for which this is happening and provides ways to circumvent the WHO/BIS/DOD initiatives that undermine sovereignty.


According to an article, “Evidence of the Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder by the DOD, HHS” by Sasha Latypova, posted by Forbidden Knowledge, the so-called, pseudo vaccine used in the COVID-19 injections is toxic by design with intent to harm.

In this presentation of “Intent to Harm,” she says, “I’m going to discuss evidence of conspiracy, which is not a theory, of the U.S. Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, other government agencies, and other governments all over the world in collusion with pharmaceutical companies; a conspiracy to commit mass murder through bioterrorism and informational warfare operations, worldwide.”

The fact that the policies governing the implementation of this So-called pandemic were put into effect, almost spontaneously, throughout the world, confirms the existence of the conspiracy. It is the only way it could have been brought to fruition.

Latypova continues: “That the evidence is overwhelming that there is an intent to harm people by the COVID-19 injections, so-called “vaccines” and other nonsensical COVID response measures implemented, in lockstep by governments all over the world.”

This too, confirms the existence of the conspiracy.

“And, as an example, these injections are toxic by design. We know this. There has been an extensive body of literature, studies, scientific discussions, evidence published on this matter. There are numerous mechanisms of injury built into the COVID-19 injections, the most important one being that these shots are designed to make your cells attack themselves; make your cells express antigens that are toxic (spike proteins) and then create antibodies to attack the cells. So, it trains your body to destroy itself. Toxic by design.”

In reference to the numerous mechanisms of injury built into the COVID-19 injections noted above, there is a recent report from Germany involving several people who succumbed to a massive heart attack 28 days after receiving the shots.

A scientific investigation, attended by six scientists, revealed that the heart was caused, by signals from other cells to speed-up to the point that it ran out of blood to pump causing death to follow very shortly.

Continuing, Latypova points out the absence of safety in the shots – that there is an horrific death and injury toll recorded in numerous datasets that are designed for pharmacovigilance, such as VAERS, vSAFE, Eudravigilance, Yellow card and so forth. And we know today, there are millions of reports of injury and death. Permanent disability and sadly death in very young people, including children, has become common.

Ms. Pavylova alludes to the absence of efficacy in the vaccines, “In fact we know that there is negative efficacy, meaning these shots make you more likely to get sick and die.”

There is extensive evidence, from many reports, confirming that this is happening throughout the world; not only are many getting sick, with some dying, but according to multiple reports many are dying shortly after injection of the “vaccine.”

She points to the lack of good manufacturing practices, that “There’s extensive evidence of bad manufacturing of these products. I covered it a lot in my own work, and I know that there is highly variable production of these shots. I demonstrated it in many ways. We have documentation of this coming directly from the manufacturers and from regulators.

“They’re not compliant with Good Manufacturing practices and importantly, there is no enforcement of Good Manufacturing practices worldwide for these products.

“We also know that there is malignant government policy all over the place and it’s surprisingly consistent across all countries of the world. The Governments are all lying, covering it up, gaslighting of the injured. Persecuting of dissent, whistleblowers, especially when they’re professionals such as myself; professionals like permanent doctors who are speaking against these measures and there is massive collusion with the media, who are all engaged in informational warfare and propaganda.”

And then there’s this:

“And especially, perverse financing. So, the money flow is tremendous and it’s all funding this crime, funding doctors, nurses, vaccinators, university administrations, employers, government officials, funding them all to continue to commit this crime.

“The crime is very clear and there is very clear intent to harm.”

Why is there no action by the regulators?

That’s a key question. Why, given all this, has no one stopped this? The FDA did not recall the EUA, the FDA did not recall the product and there’s been no enforcement of the Current Good Manufacturing Process (CGMP).

Well, the answer is because Health and Human Services Secretary, Javier Becerra, and FDA Commissioner, Robert Califf are running the US Government’s bioterrorism program jointly with the U.S. Department of Defense, Secretary Lloyd Austin, the Department of Justice, Attorney General Merrick Garland, Department of homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, Pfizer CEO, Albert Bourla, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus  and many other government and defense officials.

This is as much of the article as I can cover, it is very long; but you need to read the entire article. Click on the link, “Evidence of the Conspiracy to Commit Mass murder by the DOD, HHS” by Sasha Latypova.

In connection with the foregoing, please see my article, “Millions of Children Targeted by the FDA of December 12, 2021.

When the FDA approved the current (at that time) Pfizer “vaccine” they signed a death warrant for millions of children across the globe.

Dr. Richard L. Fleming, PhD, M.D., J.D., contacted the FDA concerning the safety and efficacy of the COVID “vaccine.”  He was assured by them, in words to the effect, “That it was everything a vaccine should be, ‘very pristine.’” However, it appears that Dr. Fleming was somewhat dubious, so he and his team went into action with tests to either confirm or reject the FDA’s claim.  Link

One of my previous articles from May 21, 2021, The Cornucopia of Deceit, Lies and Ultimate Evil”, relates to what is now going on.

According to a bitchute.com/video, and an official UK document from the Ministry of Health reveals that COVID never existed.

This, of course, is something many of us have known from the outset.  The genesis of it was launched from the Wuhan lab. This is where the “COVID virus” supposedly escaped from. This posed a question in my mind, for somehow it had been leaked out that the virus could not be seen. Therefore, that being the case – if it could not be seen, then it could not be isolated for the making of a vaccine.

There is much which can be said about the above; for instance, if it cannot be seen – how do they know that it escaped? Or how do they know it was in residence to begin with?

And, if it existed, why was it stored at the Wuhan lab? In fact, what is the purpose of this lab? Why would they spend hundreds of millions of dollars to maintain a lab in which to store a virus that cannot be seen and was allowed to escape? Or so they say.

Something else which revealed the fallacy of all this was a report noted about a discussion/conversation between the pros and the cons of the issue.

The question was, “if the virus can’t be seen, how do you know it’s in there?” Answer: words to the effect, “we know it’s in there, but it can’t be seen because, (and here it was stated) that some element of the nomenclature of our optical powers wasn’t strong enough to see it.”

The response: what if it was 100 times stronger? Answer: No. What about a thousand? Answer: No. What about 10,000? No answer.

All of that aside, it should be a given in anyone’s mind, if they would only consider the existing evidence – that the COVID virus doesn’t exist.

Jon Rappaport lays it all out in his January 29th, 2021, article in the People’s Voice.org.

“By far, the biggest sources of illness we are dealing with are lung conditions: various kinds of pneumonia; flu and flu-like disease; TB; other unnamed lung/respiratory problems.

“THESE ARE BEING RELABELED “COVID,” It’s a repackaging scheme. People are dying for those traditional reasons, and their deaths are being called ‘COVID.’

“None of the COVID deaths” anywhere in the world requires the existence of a new virus.

“For instance, in Wuhan, where the whole business began, the first ‘COVID’ cases of pneumonia occurred in a city whose air is HEAVILY polluted. In China, every year, roughly 300,000 people die from pneumonia. That means millions of cases. None of those deaths need to be explained by invoking a new virus.

“There is no evidence that an actual germ is traveling around the world felling people. The ‘evidence’ is invented.

“The ‘pandemic’ is invented.

“The fraud is promoted.”

I realize that what we present as evidence is ignored by the forces we oppose. Evidently, they are confident that all channels for us to bring forth any consequences for their actions is blocked. However, more people are becoming informed about what is being done to them, and as more folks awaken, with many more people either dying or being seriously injured for life, it could result in the development of a situation that could be very uncomfortable for those who are causing the deaths and injuries.

Recent reports have surfaced which indicate this may have already begun.

Australian Senator Gerard Rennick has accused health authorities and Big Pharma of lying and engaging in pay-outs in the development and distribution of COVID vaccines.

Rennick’s statements made to the Senate on record raise serious concerns about the trustworthiness of those responsible for our healthcare and have led to his calling for an investigation into the potential corruption and misinformation surrounding the COVID vaccine industry.

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola: on 30 November 2022 in a Parliamentary speech, Gerard Rennick, Senator for Queensland, Australia, reviewed some of the lies told by members of Parliament and the Department of Health about the COVID injections.

I listened to his speech twice. He really laid into them. I wish I could have been present to observe their expressions as he told them off.

There’s no way I can do justice to this report. You need to read it yourself.

Log on to Grand Jury to investigate COVID vaccine Crimes in Florida as Australian Senator demands investigation into Corruption & Bribes paid to Health Authorities by Pfizer

Then there’s this:

Meanwhile, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a stand against such misconduct, petitioning the Florida Supreme Court for a grand jury investigation into the matter.

If our Congress and Senators cared about the people they supposedly serve, there would be many of them speaking out against the COVID injections the way Senator Rennick is doing in Australia. At present, US Senator Ron Johnson (R-MN) stands out as a lone warrior and advocate for the COVID vaccine-injured in the US.

I would hope that the findings of the Grand Jury investigation, if it happens, will support what we know to be the truth about the so-called pandemic.

Also, I hope that its findings will confirm that the so-called “vaccine” is the cause of many deaths and serious life-time injuries, and considering all evidence, the so-called “vaccine” was specifically designed to either kill or seriously injure millions of people to depopulate the earth by, at least, 85 percent.

Send this to your Senators and Congress person.

I will send it to mine.

In addition, share it with as many others as possible.

‘Asleep at the Wheel’: DeSantis Highlights Justice Department’s Abortion Double Standard

It’s no secret that the Biden Justice Department appears to be highly politicized—and now Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is underscoring that.

Asked Thursday about the indictment this week of two pro-abortion activists in Florida on charges of spray-painting threats on the exterior of a pregnancy resource center, DeSantis said he was “surprised” the case had moved forward since “the Department of Justice had not been willing to hold those types of perpetrators accountable.”

“Meanwhile, on the other side, you could have a pro-life advocate [with] a picket sign and they’re going to treat him like he’s some hardened criminal,” the Republican governor added, saying there is a “massive imbalance” in how pro-life and pro-abortion activists are treated by federal law enforcement.

The indictments were a “step in the right direction,” DeSantis said, noting that there should be accountability for those trying “to intimidate these crisis pregnancy centers.”

The governor called on the Justice Department to change its approach.

“The DOJ has been asleep at the wheel on this for a long time,” DeSantis said. “So I’m glad to see it, I am surprised to see it. But they need to do a lot more.”

The facts back up DeSantis’ take.

Since the leak of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision last May, an astonishing 79 pregnancy resource centers and pro-life organizations have been vandalized or attacked, according to a CatholicVote tracker.

Yet, despite these scores of attacks, only two pro-abortion activists appear to have been indicted. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request from The Daily Signal asking whether any additional arrests were made in attacks on pro-life organizations or pregnancy resource centers.

Even a pregnancy resource center a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol Building and about two miles from the Justice Department wasn’t spared: In June, a vandal or vandals doused the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center’s front door in red paint and painted the words “Jane Says Revenge”—a reference to the domestic terrorist group Jane’s Revenge—on the exterior of the center.

Other pregnancy resource centers and pro-life organizations have been subjected to even more violent attacks. CompassCare Pregnancy Services, near Buffalo, New York, was firebombed June 7. Life Choices, a pregnancy resource center in Colorado, was firebombed in June, as was Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life organization.

Susan Campbell, director of the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center in Lynchburg, Virginia, described a June 25 attack on the center in an interview with The Daily Signal.

“They had taken crowbars to almost all of our windows, two of our doors, and just shattered all of the glass,” Campbell said. “They had spray-painted [the shapes of] coat hangers on the sidewalks, on the brick facing of the buildings, and [wrote] political things like ‘Vote blue.’”

“In red on the stamped concrete, it read ‘If abortion ain’t safe, you ain’t safe,’” she added.

In stark contrast, the Justice Department took action on several pro-lifers accused of violating the FACE Act, a law that is supposed to apply to both abortion clinics and pregnancy centers.

In March, the Justice Department announced the indictment of nine people for violating the FACE Act. In September, the FBI arrested a pro-life dad of 11, Mark Houck, for allegedly pushing a pro-abortion activist who he said was harassing his son. According to Houck’s attorney, Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society, “20-plus heavily armed federal agents with shields and long guns” came to the Houck home in Pennsylvania to arrest him.

In October, the Justice Department announced the indictment of 11 pro-life activists in Tennessee on charges of violating the FACE Act. Paul Vaughn of Centerville, Tennessee, told The Daily Signal that when he was arrested, the FBI came to his home with “guns pointed at the door.”

“When I opened the door and saw the guns pointed at me, I asked them what they wanted, who they were looking for, and they said they wanted me,” Vaughn said.

Nor should the DOJ’s actions come as a surprise.

My colleague Mary Margaret Olohan reported in December that a top DOJ official, Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta, “described the overturn of Roe v. Wade as a ‘devastating blow to women throughout the country’ that took away ‘the constitutional right to abortion’ and increased ‘the urgency’ of the DOJ’s work—including the ‘enforcement of the FACE Act, to ensure continued lawful access to reproductive services.’”

The Justice Department should be enforcing the law, not making politically driven decisions about what cases to prioritize and which to ignore.

DeSantis is right to call out the Justice Department. Let’s hope that attacked and vandalized pregnancy resource centers get justice sooner rather than later.

Massive Spike in Excess Deaths Sparks Calls for ‘Urgent Investigation’

The left is blaming ….. slow ambulances. Uh huh.

Scroll: Covid ‘vaccine’

Massive spike in excess deaths sparks calls for an ‘urgent investigation’: NHS crisis is blamed for nearly 3,000 more Brits than usual dying each week

  • 17,381 deaths registered in England and Wales in the seven days to January 13
  • This is the highest number of excess deaths since the UK’s second Covid wave
  • Health experts say 999 delays, long A&E waits and backlogs could be to blame

By Shaun Wooller Health Editor For The Daily Mail, 24 January 2023:

MPs have called for an urgent investigation into Britain’s soaring death rates as thousands more people than usual are dying each week.

Some 17,381 deaths were registered in England and Wales in the seven days to January 13 – 2,837 above average for the time of year.

This is the highest number of excess deaths since 3,429 in the week to February 12, 2021, when the UK was experiencing its second wave of Covid-19 infections and vaccination had only just begun.

On that occasion, deaths involving coronavirus accounted for 37 per cent of all those registered, according to the Office for National Statistics

COVID Policy: Outrage Upon Travesty Upon Falsehood—Part 2

Today, I promised to tell you more about the government’s phony COVID narratives and misguided policies, and how they hurt people.

The whole vaccine thing was as phony as a three-dollar bill.  This was not the bubonic plague; only a tiny percentage of the population was affected by COVID.  There was no fire.  But the government jumped into the vaccine game with two feet and paid media outlets a billion dollars to hype the vaccines.  But what we didn’t know until recently was that Trump COVID advisor Dr. Deborah Birx – the scarf lady – now admits to deliberately lying about the COVID vaccines to manipulate the American people.  “I knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection and I think we overplayed the vaccines …,” she said.  She also admitted to disobeying orders and altering reports to change the guidance that was being given from the government.

She’s not the only one lying through her teeth about COVID.  More people are admitting what I told you a long time ago – that hospitals are overcounting the number of COVID deaths.  For those of you who won’t believe it until you read it in the Washington Post, it’s now in the Washington Post:  Hospitals have been failing to distinguish between deaths FROM COVID and deaths WITH COVID, wildly inflating the death count and needlessly panicking the public, as a result.

More lies were found in emails.  State and local officials in Washington state knew COVID vaccinations were not as effective at stopping the spread of the virus as they were making them out to be.  But they went right ahead with their narratives and mandates, anyway.

There were others telling the American people bedtime stories about COVID – prestigious university professors and Twitter (until recently) among them.  A participant at the World Health Summit in October admitted the lockdowns “were not based on science,” but were just in reaction to events.  He also admitted the vaccines don’t stop COVID from spreading.  Another official not ‘following the science’ was Mr. ‘I Am Science’ himself, Dr. Anthony Fauci.   He said in a deposition recently he publicly dismissed the Wuhan lab origin theory of COVID because he was worried the backlash might “increase tensions” with China.  So he made the sophisticated calculus to lie to us for our own good, science be damned.  Tricky guy.  Not exactly straightforward, is he?

Then there’s the whole Ivermectin cover-up.  Federal health officials completely misrepresented the drug’s safety and efficacy against COVID.  If you aggregate all the studies, it’s indisputable Ivermectin cuts COVID mortality in half and is 80 percent effective in preventing symptoms if taken prophylactically.  But the feds were out there telling phony stories and got others to play along.  An HEB grocery store in Texas made up fake side effects to scare people away from Ivermectin.  It will make you go blind and make your intestines fall out, the store said.  How many people died as a result of these deliberate lies, that’s what I want to know.

So why were all these fairy tales told?  I can only speculate about motive.  Maybe it’s as simple as people on the take in government helping drug companies make money on vaccines and expensive treatments.  A Pfizer executive was just caught on tape admitting the drug company is working on mutating COVID through ‘directed evolution’ so vaccines will be needed forever.  Or maybe the explanation is authoritarian government officials getting their jollies by telling the rest of us what to do.  A judge in New York recently shot down the state’s vaccine mandate for health workers, ruling the state and the Governor had overstepped their authority.  There’s also a theory circulating out there the national security establishment – the Defense Department and intelligence agencies – convinced federal health officials we needed a quick way to react to future bioweapon attacks.  The mRNA vaccines were the answer because the platform is already built and all you need to do is put in a new payload each time.   The COVID pandemic was the perfect opportunity to put it all in place.

Whatever motives brought them about, the phony narratives are falling apart.  They can’t hide all the problems with the vaccines.  The truth is coming out, a little more every day, including the more than 33,000 deaths associated with the vaccines in the U.S. alone.  The demand for unvaccinated blood is soaring.  So to all who spun or believed the phony narratives and criticized people like me who questioned them, I say take your certitude and shove it!  You have a lot to answer for.

Pfizer Executive Says Company to ‘Mutate’ COVID via ‘Directed Evolution’ to Continue Profiting Off of Vaccines

Pfizer Executive Says Company to ‘Mutate’ COVID via ‘Directed Evolution’ to Continue Profiting Off of Vaccines

*CLICK HERE TO TWEET THE VIDEO*


Project Veritas released a new video today exposing a Pfizer executive, Jordon Trishton Walker, who claims that his company is exploring a way to “mutate” COVID via “Directed Evolution” to preemptively develop future vaccines.

Walker says that Directed Evolution is different than Gain-of-Function, which is defined as “a mutation that confers new or enhanced activity on a protein.” In other words, it means that a virus such as COVID can become more potent depending on the mutation / scientific experiment performed on it.

Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:

  • Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations – mRNA Scientific Planner: “One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating f**king viruses.”
  • Walker: “Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them.”
  • Walker: “You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere. Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bullsh*t.”
  • Walker: “From what I’ve heard is they [Pfizer scientists] are optimizing it [COVID mutation process], but they’re going slow because everyone is very cautious — obviously they don’t want to accelerate it too much. I think they are also just trying to do it as an exploratory thing because you obviously don’t want to advertise that you are figuring out future mutations.”

You can watch the full video HERE.

Walker went on to explain how Big Pharma and government officials, such as at the Food & Drug Administration [FDA], have mutual interests, and how that is not in the best interest of the American people:

Walker: [Big Pharma] is a revolving door for all government officials.

Veritas Journalist: Wow.

Walker: In any industry though. So, in the pharma industry, all the people who review our drugs — eventually most of them will come work for pharma companies. And in the military, defense government officials eventually work for defense companies afterwards.

[ … ]

Veritas Journalist: How do you feel about that revolving door?

Walker: It’s pretty good for the industry to be honest. It’s bad for everybody else in America.

Veritas Journalist: Why is it bad for everybody else?

Walker: Because when the regulators reviewing our drugs know that once they stop regulating, they are going to work for the company, they are not going to be as hard towards the company that’s going to give them a job.

Did You Know That Charles Darwin’s 10 Children Were The Products of An Incestuous Relationship?

There are many who have embraced the works of Charles Darwin. His man “came from apes thing” is believed by many academicians who teach it in public schools, colleges, universities globally. Therefore his man from apes is believed by many ordinary people today who have been taught to believe his theory of evolution as the truth.

These same people refuse to believe in “creationism”, which is the religious belief of Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, that nature, the universe, the earth, life, and humans originated due to the supernatural acts of a divine creator, God almighty.

What many do not know is that Darwin’s ten children were the products of inbreeding.

Doing research for this column we found an article that asked: Is it possible for humans and chimpanzees to interbreed? The author’s answer was yes, stating “Genetic analysis suggests there may have been a long period of cross-breeding between early ancestors of the humans and chimpanzees, before they finally split into the Homo and Pan (chimp) genera around six million years ago.

So, early homos sapiens we’re raping chimpanzees? Really?

However, those who believe in Darwin, as a scientist, need to understand that all of his children were born due to an incestuous relationship.

In a January 18th, 2009 The Guardian article titled ‘We ought to be exterminated’ Steve Jones wrote,

Charles Darwin had worried about his plans for marriage. Perhaps the whole idea was a mistake because of the time that would be wasted on domestic life at the expense of science. His diary records how he agonised over the pros and cons, and his decision to “Marry, marry, marry!” And marry, in the end, he did.

His spouse was his cousin, Emma Wedgwood. In falling for a relative he stuck to a clan tradition. The Darwins, like many among the Victorian upper crust, had long preferred to share a bed with their kin. Charles’s grandfather Josiah Wedgwood set up home with his third cousin Sarah Wedgwood. Their daughter, Susannah, chose Robert Darwin, Charles’s father. Charles’s uncle – Emma’s father – had nine offspring, four of whom married cousins. The evolutionist’s own marriage was in the end happy, with 10 children (and when his wife was in her 40s he wrote that “Emma has been very neglectful of late for we have not had a child for more than one whole year”). Even so, in Queen Victoria’s fecund days the Darwin-Wedgwood dynasty did less well than most, for among the 62 uncles, cousins and aunts (Emma and Charles included) who descended from Josiah, 38 had no progeny that survived to adulthood.

Six years after his wife’s last confinement Darwin began to think about the dangers of inbreeding, in particular as they applied to his own choice of spouse. His concern was picked up from another of his cousins, Francis Galton, the founder of eugenics, who had pointed out the potential dangers of marriage within the clan. [Emphasis added]

Read the full article.

In a May 3rd, 2010 article titled How Charles Darwin’s family paid the price of inbreeding Fiona MacRae for the Daily Mail reported,

He is the father of evolution, whose discoveries revolutionised our understanding of genetics.

But even Charles Darwin was not exempt from the vagaries of DNA.

Three of Darwin’s 10 children died in childhood, while another three never had any children of their own, despite being married for years.

A study of the scientist’s family tree suggests inbreeding was to blame, with frequent cousin to cousin marriages lowering immunity to disease and raising the odds of infertility.

Darwin’s mother, Susannah, was the daughter of third cousins, one of which was Josiah Wedgwood, the founder of the pottery dynasty of the same name.

Darwin’s wife, Emma Wedgwood, was his first cousin, while the Wedgwood family tree contained several other marriages between cousins.

The couple had ten children – four girls and six boys – between 1839 and 1858.  But only seven survived to adulthood.

Read more.

Best Glitz reported this about Charles Darwin’s children,

Many of his seven children, who had survived into adulthood, would lead a different life, as George Darwin became the professor of astronomy and experimental philosophy at Cambridge University, or Leonard Darwin, the president of the university became Royal Geological Society. Their most notable contribution to science, however, was less than something they did.

Starting with his first son, William Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin began to make detailed notes about the development of his children. Certainly he did not go out to see how they responded to deliberate abuse or neglect, but the tone of his notes would be so distant that he called at least one of them “it.” He published his observations in 1872 as part of the book The expression of emotions in humans and animals. The experiments carried out on William, Anne and other Darwin children were vigorously quoted by such giants in the burgeoning field of psychology as Sigmund Freud.

Darwin’s Children were victims of their father’s DNA

It’s interesting to understand that the man who created the erroneous idea that man was evolved from apes was married to his cousin Emma.

Monkeys and apes are not incestuous and they don’t inbreed. Apes aren’t pedophiles, pederasts nor are they perverted. Mother and father apes have strong traditional families, unlike humans. Darwin got it all wrong in the most fundamental way, the ape family.

It appears that his emotions, unlike apes, got the best of him. One might even say Darwin’s “emotions” were similar to a very few mammals who mate with one of their own family like mice, sand lizards some shorebirds and black-legged kittiwake chicks who by the way are much more likely to die if their parents are closely related to each other. So are Homo sapiens more like mice and rats?

Those who forget Darwin’s sad family history are doomed to repeat it.

There’s an attempt today, in 2023, to make child marriages, incest, pedophilia, pederasty, polygamy and even incest normal behaviors.

Today there are some academicians who wish to rebrand pederasts, pedophiles, perverts as “minor attracted persons.” Incest is one of the key factors in promoting abortion. It’s easy for a father to get rid of “it”, a.k.a. his daughter’s baby.

There are many examples of fathers impregnating their daughters and then taking them to a Planned Parenthood facility to get rid of his problem called “it”. Murderers of unborn children are the most evil bar none.

While Darwin’s children were the victims of his DNA the victims of perverts and pederasts are not. They abuse children because we let them!

Lets stop letting them abuse children!

What Hath 50 Years of ‘Roe’ Wrought?

The Declaration of Independence says we’re endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

When Vice President Kamala Harris gave a speech promoting abortion over the weekend, she cited our nation’s founding document, and the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But she conveniently left out the right to life—even though that is the first right listed. She also left out the Creator—the source of all our rights.

This is just one example among many of the ways that 50 years of the abortion ethic have undermined our right to life as a nation.

January 22, 2023 was the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the infamous Supreme Court decision that gave us abortion on demand. Here are just a few examples of some of the fallout of that decision.

Undermining the Constitution

Roe v. Wade abused the Constitution by claiming that somehow the 9th and the 14th Amendments could be so twisted as to allow for abortion on demand. Huh? The 14th Amendment even mentions the “right to life.”

The Supreme Court has made mistakes through the years. In 1857, they said in the infamous Dred Scott v. Sanford decision, “The Constitution of the United States recognizes slaves as property.”

We fought a Civil War and saw about 700,000 American die in part to correct that dreadful decision. But Roe has also damaged our governance as a nation under the Constitution.

Father Frank Pavone, founder and director of Priests for Life, who was recently “laicized” by an increasingly liberal Vatican, told me: “Roe v. Wade has distorted our entire process of self-governance, replacing the will of the people with the imposition of a fake Constitutional right, and allowing abortion, as the only medical procedure with such a status, to grotesquely disfigure everything from city council meetings to Supreme Court confirmation processes.”

Degrading Human Life

We were told before Roe that if abortion were legal, then every child would be wanted and therefore child abuse would go down.

But child abuse has skyrocketed since Roe. And why not? It deadens the maternal instinct. As Mother Teresa once observed, “If we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell others not to kill one another?”

Since Roe was overturned, we have seen an acceleration of chemical abortions. Many of these are done by the women themselves in their own homes without the benefit of a physician to observe.

Abby Johnson, former head of a Planned Parenthood clinic and one-time “Planned Parenthood Employee of the Year,” is strongly pro-life today because she saw a sonogram of an abortion in her own clinic. This wasn’t a “blob of tissue” fighting for his life—it was a baby. Her story can be found in the book she wrote with Cindy Lambert, Unplanned, and the subsequent movie.

She gave me a statement for this article on 50 years of legalized abortion in America: “One of the biggest fallouts from Roe is that every woman’s bathroom will now become an abortion clinic if she decides to use the abortion pill to end her unwanted or unplanned pregnancy.”

These pills are marketed as safe. But she warns, “The use of the abortion pill is about to skyrocket and I don’t think the nation is ready for both emotional and physical ramifications of such sweeping actions. I think it’s going to be horrific, and the pro-life movement needs to be there for these women who need love the most when they are considering abortion and in the aftermath of their decision.”

Abortion has undermined the Hippocratic Oath, more than 2000 years old in Western medicine—that physicians are to “do no harm”—since abortionists are actively taking a life.

Eric Scheidler is the founder of the Pro-Life Action League. He told me, “[A]fter two generations of abortion without limits, one of the most extreme policies on the face of the Earth, we have a scene of devastation on our hands.”

64 Million Unborn Babies Dead

Millions of mothers have participated in the destruction of their own preborn babies. Some have been hardened in their hearts by the process. Others have felt terrible regret.

“Abortion is bad for women and babies,” notes Evangelist Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She admits she had two abortions—and now is so grateful for the forgiveness of Jesus in her life. She warns against others making this same mistake.

In fact, she told me in a recent radio segment, “Life should be celebrated and acknowledged and appreciated from the womb to the tomb into eternity.” Alveda has now started the organization, “Speak for Life.”

50 years ago, the Supreme Court took a terribly wrong turn in Roe. Thankfully, that has been overturned, but we have much ground to cover in America to see a resurgence of the right to life.

Republicans Renew Push To Ban Research That May Have Caused COVID-19

Republican senators, led by Roger Marshall of Kansas, are reintroducing legislation banning the federal government from funding gain-of-function research.

Proponents argue that gain-of-function research, which is intended to make a virus more transmissible or deadly, can help scientists predict and prevent future pandemics. Chinese scientists were conducting the research on bat-based coronaviruses in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), where many speculate COVID-19 emerged from. U.S. taxpayer dollars were sent to the lab via a Department of Health and Human Services sub-grant, and many members of Congress believe that the federal government should reinstate a ban on funding the practice.

Marshall’s bill prohibits the federal government from giving funds to any “institutions of higher education, or other research institutes, that are conducting gain-of-function research.” President Barack Obama banned the federal government from funding gain-of-function research in 2014, but President Donald Trump lifted the ban in 2017.

Marshall introduced similar legislation in October 2021.

Read the bill here:

Marshall GoF Bill by Michael Ginsberg on Scribd

“For the past few years, a select group of individuals at NIH and other federal agencies have undermined congressional oversight instead of being transparent or accountable to the American people,” Marshall said in a statement to the Daily Caller. “This has hampered our ability to get to the bottom of the COVID-19 outbreak and gain a full understanding of how much taxpayers are subsidizing these dangerous activities. This new GAO report further bolsters the need to address NIH’s failure in executing its oversight responsibilities of federally-funded research. Until the oversight process is reformed and adequate guidelines are in place to protect all of us from dangerous outbreaks, we must not allow this research to continue.”

WIV has received more than $600,000 in taxpayer dollars via a sub-grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to the non-profit group EcoHealth Alliance. NIAID distributed the funds to EcoHealth at the same time as Obama’s ban on gain-of-function research, although then-agency head Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed that the moratorium was not violated.

Congressional Republicans have pledged to investigate federal grant disbursement, as well as the origins of the COVID-19 virus. Minority reports issued in the 117th Congress by Republicans in both the House and the Senate found that the virus is likely to have leaked from WIV, although the reports emphasized that congressional investigators could not be certain of COVID-19’s origins. Ohio Rep. Mike Turner, now the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, accused intelligence officials in December of stonewalling a committee investigation.

COVID Policy: Outrage Upon Travesty Upon Falsehood—Part 1

The Biden Pentagon is forcing soldiers discharged for refusing the COVID vaccine to pay back their signing bonuses despite the termination of the military’s vaccine mandate by law.  That doesn’t seem fair to me, but the government’s other COVID policies are just as misguided, starting with the lockdowns.

The public health experts could not have been more wrong about the lockdowns.  The experts failed to account for learning losses incurred by shutting schools.  Learning loss has been openly discussed for a while now, but the knock-on effects have not.  The workforce of the future will be lower-skilled due to the lockdowns, leaving students with the prospect of 2 to 9 percent lower lifetime income as a result.  But the economic fallout doesn’t stop there.  This translates into future GDP loss of 0.6 to 2.9 percent every year for the rest of the 21st century.  Betcha the public health experts didn’t think about any of that.  They failed to think systemically when they were locking us up and shutting down schools.

Britain is facing years of excess deaths from the lockdown.  Thousands of routine medical treatments and appointments were delayed in the lockdown, which resulted in a lot of heart disease and developing cancers not being caught early.  The bill is coming due.

Fresh evidence has come in proving the experts were also wrong about masks.  A new peer-reviewed, randomized controlled trial showed no significant difference between N95 masks and surgical masks for the prevention of contracting COVID.  N95 masks were thought to be the gold standard offering the highest protection, and surgical masks medium protection. This study followed a previous study showing no difference between wearing a surgical mask and no mask at all.  Remember, in a deposition, Anthony Fauci could not name a single study showing masks to be effective.

We also have more evidence the experts were wrong about natural immunity.  They pushed COVID vaccines as affording better immunity, contrary to common sense.  But a new study shows children developing natural immunity after exposure to COVID had better immunity than children who were vaccinated.  It took a long time, but the experts and pontificators are finally starting to admit they were wrong about natural immunity.  Two new studies show mRNA vaccines produce less effective antibodies than traditional vaccines do.  A Pfizer scientist and a member of Anthony Fauci’s staff were on one of the studies.  And for you Democrats out there who won’t believe anything until you read it in the Washington Post, listen up:

abundant research shows natural immunity conveys excellent protection against covid. One Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study found that vaccinated people who never had covid were at least three times as likely to be infected as unvaccinated people with prior infection. And a Lancet study found that those who were vaccinated but never had covid were four times as likely to have severe illness resulting in hospitalization or death compared to the unvaccinated who recovered from it. Protection from natural immunity also wanes at a slower rate than from vaccination.

There’s also more data now showing the vaccines were not all they were cracked up to be and cause problems themselves, starting with negative efficacy.  A Cleveland Clinic study showed people who got vaccinated were at greater risk of contracting COVID than those who did not.  Stunningly, people who received more than three vaccines were at the highest risk of all.  Finally, just as I told you 16 months ago, COVID vaccines cause new COVID variants to appear. [Daily Skirmish – 9/17/21]  This is backed up by new studies suggesting COVID vaccines are contributing to viral evolution.

There’s more.  Come back tomorrow and I’ll show you more reasons why the government’s phony COVID narratives and resulting misguided policies did great harm.

What Happens to Soldiers Who Refuse the COVID Vaccine?

Lockdowns and Vaccines Caused More Death Than They Prevented

Insightful piece here over at The Burning Platform:

2023: FOURTH TURNING MEETS MASS FORMATION PSYCHOSIS

The lockdowns and vaccines have caused more death than they prevented. Suicides, overdose deaths, deaths due to preventative healthcare not accessed, deaths by ventilators and Remdesivir, deaths due to not allowing doctors to prescribe ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, and now sudden deaths from the Pfizer and Moderna jabs are all verifiable and factual, but no empathy from the covidian cult is forthcoming for these victims. As Desmet points out, once the mass formation began it encouraged various factions to keep it going for their own self-interest. The cult never wants it to end.

[…]

The superficiality of the citizenry, celebration of deviancy, financial illiteracy, unserious culture, technology obsession, and devastating level of governmental, academic, media and corporate corruption, are a perfect recipe for the fall of the American empire.

[…]

It appears 2023 could be a tipping point year in this Fourth Turning, much like the 15th year of the last Fourth Turning (1943-1944) when the tide turned during WWII with the Battle of Stalingrad and Normandy Invasion. Biden’s corrupt administration appears to be imploding. Inflation, rising interest rates, a $31 trillion national debt, $200 trillion of unpayable obligations, a USD that has lost 97% of its purchasing power, out of control surveillance state agencies running amok, broken education system, rampant worship and promotion of deviancy, ghetto crime rampaging in every major urban city, transferring $120 billion to the Ukraine (actually US arms dealers) to instigate WWIII, provoking China over Taiwan, and allowing unelected officials at non-governmental organizations (WEF, WHO, UN, NATO, World Bank) to impose their rules, regulations and mandates on our lives, has set the table for the disintegration of our financial, political, social, and cultural institutions. The downward spiral, decades in the making, is irreversible at this point.

Will all of these lit fuses ignite their powder kegs simultaneously in 2023? Probably not, but a few will explode, producing unintended consequences and start a process of falling dominoes and chaos for the average human on this earth. Having already ruined the livelihoods of tens of millions across the globe, destroying thousands of small businesses, igniting inflation not seen in forty years, causing food shortages, and making our lives far worse, the sudden deaths of children, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends from their mandated gene altering, spike protein inducing therapy should be the last straw and provoke a violent response from the awakening masses.

It’s time to treat Big Tech like Big Tobacco

Imagine if a man in a white panel van pulled up in your neighbourhood and began enticing teens to look at pictures and videos featuring drug use, pornography and a range of other antisocial activities. In many neighbourhoods, he’d be in handcuffs within the hour.

And yet, strangely enough, Mark Zuckerberg, Shou Zi Chew and Sundar Pichai do almost the same thing online at Instagram, TikTok and YouTube, where they have virtually unimpeded access to the neighbourhood teens and manage to make billions of dollars poisoning their hearts and minds.

This is the strange moment we are living in, a moment where we still let Big Tech push products on our teens that, as the Facebook Files suggested, make them anxious, depressed and suicidal, among other pathologies.

We’re at a moment with Big Tech much like we were with Big Tobacco in the 1970s, when the studies were rolling in documenting the medical risks associated with smoking, but the government had not yet stepped in aggressively to limit smoking. In the past decade, anxiety, depression and teen suicide have surged, especially among girls, since the mass adoption of smartphones around 2010. Depression more than doubled, from 12 percent in 2010 to 26 percent today for teen girls. Emergency room visits for self-inflicted injuries almost doubled over the same period, again for teen girls. And teen suicide among girls has risen to a 40-year high.

A mounting body of evidence indicates that Big Tech is heavily implicated in the skyrocketing psychological problems of our nation’s adolescents. One recent study found that teens who devote more than eight hours a day to screen time were about twice as likely to be depressed as their peers who were on screens less often than that.

The study, sponsored by the Institute for Family Studies and the Wheatley Institute and co-authored by one of us, also discovered that teens who have high tech use were almost twice as likely to report being lonely and about 30 percent more likely to be sleep deprived.

Social media appears to be especially problematic for today’s teens. Excessive time on social media has been linked to “fear of missing out,” cyberbullying, emotional insecurity and body-image problems. The time devoted to social media also inhibits in-person socializing, exercise and sleep, all of which are crucial for adolescents’ emotional well-being. Research by psychologist Jean Twenge found, for instance, that the share of teens who went on dates has fallen by almost 30 percentage points in recent years and that the number of times teens hang out with friends fell by about 20 percent from 2007 to 2015. “As long as teens are scrolling through Instagram more, and hanging in person with their friends less, depression is likely to remain at historically high levels,” noted Twenge.

Of course, just as Big Tobacco had its defenders as debates about the tobacco-cancer link first erupted, Big Tech has its defenders today, as well. For example, Harvard social scientist Mesfin Bekalu argued that routine social media use “could be beneficial,” a sentiment echoed by Zuckerberg in his claim that Instagram is “generally positive” for kids’ mental health. While all social scientists know that “correlation does not equal causation,” there is growing evidence that the negative impact of technology on teens is indeed causal. In fact, new studies of the rollout of broadband internet in Germany and Italy show the penetration of the internet into ordinary communities across these countries fuelled emotional problems among the young, especially young women, providing the strongest evidence to date that it really is Big Tech, not something else, making us miserable.

Here in the United States, a new study finds that the expansion of the internet has driven suicide rates higher in counties across America, further evidence that Big Tech’s effects are causal.

Unfortunately, Big Tech has been able to prey on our teens in part because their apps operate under a law that was designed before the age of social media, giving parents very little control over their kids’ tech use. That law, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, was passed in 1998 in the age of dial-up internet service and online message boards. Since then, the internet has gone through significant changes. Today, at the click of a button or the swipe of a phone, our children can find themselves immersed in apps and games that expose them to antisocial images and messages without their parents’ knowledge, consent or protection.

But since Congress has failed to stand up to Big Tech by updating the legislation, it falls on states to take the lead in protecting our kids. Louisiana recently passed legislation requiring pornography sites to verify users’ ages. And Utah, under the leadership of Gov. Spencer Cox, is now poised to take the lead in protecting teens from the worst excesses of Big Tech.

Inspired in part by the report “Protecting Teens from Big Tech: Five Policy Ideas for States,” Utah state legislators like Sen. Mike McKell, R-Spanish Fork, and Rep. Jordan Teuscher, R-South Jordan, are working with Cox to advance legislation that would ensure that all social media platforms operating in the state do five things:

  • Age verify their users.
  • Get permission from parents for users younger than 18.
  • Give parents access to kids’ social media accounts.
  • Provide parents with the right to sue Big Tech for financial damages if they do not obey the law.
  • Prohibit Big Tech companies from using kids’ data or addictive algorithms on platforms serving children.

Cox also hopes to launch a public campaign that will educate kids and young adults about the dangers of devoting too much time to the virtual world, and not enough time to the real world.

Some will argue that such reforms are unnecessary or impractical. Regarding necessity, those who are parents today know how hard it can be to police their children’s social media accounts. The law should make it easier — not harder — for parents to protect their children.

As for feasibility, new online technologies make it easy to require age/ID verification for children’s use of apps through third-party services such as Persona. And parental monitoring of such apps can build on the success that companies like Greenlight (which provides debit cards that allow parents to oversee their children’s spending) have already had in implementing this type of technology.

Companies like Alphabet, Meta and TikTok have unparalleled power to shape the hearts, minds and lives of American adolescents. Of course, some of the connections forged by these platforms have been good, helping kids deepen friendships, stay in touch with grandparents or communicate socially redeeming messages.

But much of the time, the power that Big Tech wields over our children’s lives ends up being abused and abusive, and Cox aims to give parents more power to guide and protect their kids online. We hope the Utah state legislature will work with him to pass legislation to rein in Big Tech.

As Cox said at a recent symposium on social media and teen mental health, “I truly believe we are starting to reach this tipping point. I was shocked when I saw some of those charts and graphs. I knew it was worse, but I didn’t realize how much until I saw the data. And when I saw those, it was an awakening for me, and we’re hoping to have that same awakening with policymakers.”

In other words, it’s time for Utah — and the rest of the country — to treat Big Tech much like Big Tobacco.

Kamala Harris: ‘We Love’ Abortionists

Former President Bill Clinton tried to soften the Democratic Party’s image as extreme liberals by insisting, “I am not pro-abortion.” Over the weekend, Kamala Harris opened a widely panned speech on abortion by saying she and President Joe Biden “love” abortionists, before concluding her speech, “God bless America.”

The vice president went on to imply that Americans’ unalienable rights do not come from our Creator; omit the right to life from the Declaration of Independence; hint that the national anthem supports abortion; accuse pro-life advocates of attacking the “foundations of freedom; and claim an LGBT riot, in which drag queens tried to burn policemen alive, represents “the strength of our nation.”

Harris delivered an address in Tallahassee, Florida, on Sunday to mark what would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, an anniversary aborted last summer when the Supreme Court overturned the case, which first invented a constitutional right to abortion. Planned Parenthood had already planned to hold a “Rally in Tally” before Harris joined their lineup; Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson spoke earlier in the event. An abortionist with Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, named Sujatha Prabhakaran, introduced Harris after leading the crowd in a rousing chant of “Abortion is health care!” (In reality, the Hippocratic Oath states, “I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my art.”)

“We love” abortionists. Arriving at the podium, a confused Harris began by asking where Prabhakaran had gone. “We love all of our frontline folks,” said Harris, referring to abortion industry employees. “And this room is filled with them.”

Harris then delivered a speech that rang alarm bells nationwide for its secularism and historical revisionism.

Erasing the Creator and the right to life. Harris seemed to state that Americans’ unalienable rights do not come from God but from a social contract among voters. “America is a promise; it is a promise of freedom and liberty, not for some, but for all — a promise we made in the Declaration of Independence,” she said. Harris then left out our founding document’s reference to the right to life, saying, “We are each endowed with the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Be clear: These rights were not bestowed upon us. They belong to us as Americans.”

The Founding Fathers designed a form of government that would restrain the government from violating Americans’ God-given rights, including the right to life. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men.” (Emphases added.)

Both Joe Biden and Barack Obama regularly omitted the Declaration’s reference to “the Creator” — a rhetorical gambit that critics say undermines freedom and liberty.

“We need to know our history and challenge those who want to selectively edit or change our founding documents, because it matters that our rights come to us from God — that they are not a grant from government,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins on “Washington Watch” Monday. “When you take God out of the equation … it enables these power-hungry bureaucrats and politicians to try to usurp those rights.”

Secularism also attacks the foundations of our freedoms, said a lifelong student of the Founders’ views. “In every nation in the history of the world, there’s only really been two options: They either have a really big government or a really big God. They don’t have both, because if you have a really big God, you don’t need a really big government,” Tim Barton of WallBuilders told Perkins Monday. “You don’t need it to be God in your life.”

“But if there is no God, then you need a big government,” Barton continued, “because instead of, ‘My God shall supply all my needs,’ it tends to be, ‘My government shall supply all the needs.‘”

Star-Spangled abortion? Harris continued reimagining the nation’s founding when she implied that abortion rings through every line of our national anthem. “Here is a collection of words that mean everything to us as Americans: the heartfelt words of our great national anthem, that America is ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave,’” she said. “But let us ask, can we truly be free if a woman cannot make decisions about her own body?” Abortionists destroy a child’s body by suction/aspiration or dismemberment; they have also injured or killed the mother.

Protecting 6.9% of babies from abortion is extreme? Harris chided “so-called leaders at the statehouse here in Tallahassee” for passing “a radical abortion ban.” Thanks to the bill, she said, “health care providers face prison for up to five years for simply doing their job.”

Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed a bill last year protecting unborn babies from abortion after 15 weeks, or slightly after the first trimester. Abortionists commit “nearly all” U.S. abortions (93.1%) before 13 weeks gestation, according to the Biden-Harris administration’s most recent abortion surveillance. A full 72% of Americans support such a law, according to a Harvard/Harris poll.

The “health care providers” Harris mentioned were abortionists, whose job entails ending the life of a child, which begins at fertilization.

“How dare” Republicans protect life? Pro-life politicians “attack the very foundations of freedom,” Harris continued. “Republicans in Congress are now calling for a nationwide abortion ban. Some even from the moment of conception” — which, embryologists agree, marks the moment a child’s life begins.

“How dare they?! How dare they?!” Harris bellowed.

Allowing abortion-on-demand does not contradict any faith? Harris once again tried to appeal to Americans to lay aside faith-based objections to abortion. “One does not have to abandon their faith or deeply held beliefs to agree that the government should not be telling people what to do with their own bodies,” she claimed. Christians have held that abortion violates their faith, and should be illegal, for 2,000 years. Orthodox Jews also say they hold a pro-life faith. However, the Satanic Temple regards abortion as a sacrament.

The “strength of our nation” was secured by LGBT rioters who attacked police. Harris told the crowd of abortion industry employees and lobbyists that they must have “the kind of determination” that motivated “our greatest patriots,” including “those Americans who fought a Civil War to end the sin of slavery, who organized at Seneca Falls to secure a woman’s right to vote, who launched the Freedom Rides to advance civil rights, and spoke out at the Stonewall Inn to defend human rights.”

On June 29, 1969, six New York City police officers raided the Stonewall Inn, a seedy bar operated by the Mafia without a license, on a morals charge. Thousands of LGBT rioters surrounded the half-dozen cops, pelted them with bottles, and attempted to burn the bar to the ground with them inside. “Our goal was to hurt those police,” said rioter John O’Brien. “I wanted to kill those cops.”

In 2016, Barack Obama named the Stonewall Inn a national monument.

Harris attempted to encourage the crowd, dispirited by pro-life gains since the Dobbs ruling. “We’re on the right side of history,” she told the crowd.

“May God bless you, and may God bless America,” she concluded.

Inverting historical, moral, and religious truth so completely is not accidental but an attempt to demonize the Founding Fathers, repeal the Constitution, and establish an alternate form of government, Barton said.

“I think it’s very hard to argue that Kamala Harris or President Biden don’t understand the positions they’re taking, and they’re doing it intentionally to promote a political ideology philosophy,” Barton told Perkins. “They are working, as President Obama once said, to fundamentally transform America.”
