WORLD HAPPINESS REPORT: The U.S. Happiness Ranking in 2020 was #18 ― In 2024 it is #23. Why?

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ― Dalai Lama XIV


The 2024 World Happiness Report has been released and it contains some very useful, informative and very shocking scientific outcomes.

First, please watch this short video explaining the background of the World Happiness Report:

After reading the results of the 2024 World Happiness Report (2021-2023) we decided to compare it with the last report the 2020 World Happiness Report (2018-2020).

Living in America we of course focused at the ranking of America in both reports.

What we found was sad but understandable.

Here are the rankings of America for the last two World Happiness Reports:

Why?

The 2024 World Happiness Report found:

  • [I]n North America happiness has fallen so sharply for the young that they are now less happy than the old. 
  • Happiness fell significantly in the country group including the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, by twice as much for the young as for the old.
  • In 2021-2023 negative emotions were in every region more prevalent for females than males. Almost everywhere the gender gap is larger at older ages.
  • The frequency of positive emotions in every region is highest for those under 30, thereafter steadily declining with age in every region except North America, where positive emotions are least frequent for those in the middle age groups.
  • In most countries life satisfaction drops gradually from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood. Globally, young people aged 15-24 still report higher life satisfaction than older adults. But this gap is narrowing in Western Europe and recently reversed in North America due to falling life satisfaction among the young.
  • As between generations, those born before 1965 (Boomers and their predecessors) have life evaluations about one-quarter of a point higher than those born after 1980 (Millennials and Gen Z). Within each generation, life evaluations rise with age for those in the older generations and fall with age for the younger ones, with little age effect for those in between.
  • Figure 2.2: Ranking of Happiness – the Young (Age below 30): 2021-2023 shows the United states ranked 62nd.

America’s youth and America’s females, in particular, are less happy.

According to Tufts Tisch College

In 2024, Gen Z youth alone will make up over 40 million potential voters—including 8 million youth who will have newly reached voting age since 2022—making up nearly one fifth of the American electorate. Together with the youngest Millennials, young people ages 18-34 are poised to be a potential force in the next presidential election.

The Tufts Tisch College poll found that half of of America’s youth are struggling mentally. The poll found that close to half of young people say they’re struggling with mental health issues like loneliness or lack of confidence, and those who do are less likely to vote.

America’s youth are most worried about:

  1. Key Issues: Economy, Climate, Guns. Young people’s top issues are inflation/cost of living, jobs that pay a living wage, gun violence, and climate change.

America’s youth are confused because they have been indoctrinated by their teachers from K-12-20.

Here’s why:

  • America’s youth believe that the world is ending because of their own actions. They feel responsible for the climate changing when in fact there is nothing they, or mankind, can do to impact the weather, let alone the climate. They are now the children of the religion of climate change.
  • Boys and girls have both been brainwashed to believe that they can not only choose their personal pronoun but that gender affirming surgery is safe and necessary.
  • America’s youth aren’t being taught how to think, rather they are being taught what to think. Instead of learning the three R’s they are taught how not to think for themselves. How to create new knowledge, new wisdom and new understanding of themselves and the world.
  • Today’s youth believe that Communism is good and Capitalism is bad. They aren’t being taught the failed history of Communism.
  • Today’s white youth are being told that they are racists and evil. That they must pay reparations even thought they never owned a slave.
  • Today’s Jewish students are being attacked by their teachers, professors and physically to the point of being in fear if their lives.
  • Today’s Christian youth are being bombarded with devil worship and evil everywhere that they look. Be it pornography on social media sites like TikTok to films like “Poor Things.”
  • Today’s youth are not being hired because of their qualifications but by their race or gender. Diversity, equity and inclusion is more important and replaced the standards of knowledge, hard work and professionalism.
  • Today’s American youth have increasing debt, both personal and national, are more unsure that ever about their futures.
  • Today’s young men and women are not thinking about marriage and having children. Rather they have become more and more self-centered and frivolous.

America’s youth are in a downward spiral and they are depressed, lonely and lack confidence because they have been lied to, and subjected to myths rather than the truth.

Abraham Lincoln wrote, “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

America’s youth can’t make up their minds because big government, social media, Hollywood, corporations and colleges and universities don’t want them to. They just want them to obey.

America’s youth are suffering from “The Seven Social Sins”:

  1. Wealth without work.
  2. Pleasure without conscience.
  3. Knowledge without character.
  4. Commerce without morality.
  5. Science without humanity.
  6. Worship without sacrifice.
  7. Politics without principle.

Parents and grandparents must take back our youth and return to them the one and only thing that will cure them — life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

‘SICK’: Unmasking Big Medicine | TRAILER OUT NOW

“You follow the money, you pretty much discover everything,” says just one of the medical professionals the Daily Caller sat down with for our latest documentary. And that’s exactly what we did.

The Daily Caller’s new documentary, “SICK,” dives into the deceitful history and shameful practices of America’s Big Medicine industry. From doctors and therapists to scientists and executives, these pill pushers all claim to be the experts. They say we should trust them when they promise to cure all our ailments.

But the patients, advocates and doctors we spoke to all agreed: Big Medicine has made us less healthy and more dependent on the toxic chemicals they prescribe.

“SICK” is available exclusively to Patriots subscribers. Subscribe here to watch Thursday, and check out our entire collection of original documentaries.

Catch an exclusive first glimpse below.

First, the Daily Caller uncovered the true cost of the Defund the Police movement in “Lawless.”  Then “Rigged” exposed the issue Democrats fear most: how their political machine managed to install Joe Biden in 2020. Now, we are taking on one of the Swamp’s most powerful allies, the massive pharmaceutical companies they all begged us — no, forced us — to trust for our COVID vaccines.

“SICK” goes back long before the COVID disaster. Our investigative team examines the opioid epidemic foisted on us by Purdue Pharma, which still wreaks havoc on families and communities across the country. We take a deep dive into the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) craze, which for 50 years was sold as the miracle cure for depression and anxiety despite often creating the problems it’s meant to treat. We ultimately go back over one hundred years to show how the use of toxic chemicals to treat medical conditions was part of a coordinated push by one of the wealthiest families in American history.

The same tactics are at work today, as drug pushers and government ideologues team up to pump vulnerable children with irreversible hormone treatments under the guise of “gender-affirming care.”

There is a silver lining: after COVID, more Americans are waking up. Americans’ trust in the medical system is approaching an all-time low as they tune out the expert advice that would turn them into lifelong patients and cash cows.

The only message Big Medicine will understand is a hit to their bottom line. And by shedding further light on their decades of abuse, the Daily Caller aims to deliver just that.

The Daily Caller’s documentary productions are made possible by our faithful Patriots members, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without them. To watch “SICK” — and to help support future investigative documentaries — please consider subscribing.

Reject the ‘Red Pill,’ Carry Your Cross

Feminism has, for over a century, been playing merry Hell with Western civilization, engendering (pun intended) division and enmity between the sexes and giving rise to a host of moral and societal cancers, such as abortion, transgenderism, and the decline of the family.

The division between the sexes bred by feminism initially targeted women, pressuring them to be more and more like men, especially by leaving their homes and children and joining the workforce. Of course, women cannot, by their very nature as women, be men, and thus feminism spawned a dual bitterness among its female adherents: bitterness towards masculinity for being unattainably masculine and bitterness against femininity for not being attainably masculine.

By the final quarter of the 20th century, after achieving its magnum opus in the Sexual Revolution, feminism had fixed its withering glare on men. Masculinity was soon labeled dangerous and “toxic,” and men were pressured to be more like women, particularly by abandoning or suppressing masculine characteristics like assertiveness or aggression, independence, and providence. Having been told for generations that they are, by their very nature as men, problematic and oppressive, it is little wonder that there has been a decades-long crisis in masculinity.

Many men today strive to avoid the “toxic” label and so cede their God-given role as leader and provider, often allowing women to shape their opinions, lead their relationships, and split their role as breadwinner equally. This weakness has wrought even further civilizational decay and has driven countless men into desperate little psychological corners. Some simply whither away and die there, more terrified of being called a monster than of the sad, shivering husk they instead become; some, disgusted with the horror they are told that men are (a disgust frequently compounded by pornography addictions and neglected psychological conditions), decide it’s better to be women than to be men, and so seek out gender transition drugs and surgeries; and some, sick of the stranglehold that feminism has so long exerted over the culture, take the “Red Pill.”

The ‘Red Pill’

Across the internet, hundreds of thousands of young men partake in the “manosphere,” a community of websites, blogs, video channels, and social media influencers who promote physical fitness, tanned-and-toned body aesthetics, and a ridiculously luxurious lifestyle and claim that feminism has poisoned culture against men, encouraged and entrenched vitriol against men, and proliferated and normalized sexual degeneracy among women. So far, spot on. But despite its largely-correct diagnosis of the social evils plaguing our civilization, the remedy prescribed by the manosphere is just as poisonous: the Red Pill.

What could have been an ordered and even noble response to feminism, a surgical maneuver to excise the cultural cancer, devolved instead into a cesspool of violent misogyny, rampant degeneracy, and nihilistic materialism, with a dash of narcissistic homosexuality for flavor.

The Red Pill does not respond to feminism’s pervasive sexual promiscuity by extolling the virtue of chastity, but instead jealously encourages men to be just as promiscuous, if not more so. The Red Pill does not seek out the forgotten masculine characteristics of courage, endurance, providence, and self-sacrifice, but instead cultivates only aggression and self-seeking. The Red Pill does not remind men that they are to provide for their wives and children, but instead tells them to “rise and grind” so they can afford a bulky luxury watch and a fluorescent luxury sportscar — all the better for cruising for chicks. The Red Pill does not remind men why manhood is good and necessary, but instead conforms masculinity to the terms set by feminism, in the inverse: poisoning culture against women, encouraging and entrenching vitriol against women, and proliferating and normalizing sexual degeneracy among men.

In short, the Red Pill is just vapid internet slang for feminism’s evils practiced by and for the “benefit” of men. Just as feminism is characterized by labelling masculinity “toxic,” so also the Red Pill is characterized by labelling women “sluts.” Misogyny is an essential component of the Red Pill, which in many cases leads to yet another social and sexual evil: narcissistic homosexuality.

‘Men without Chests’

Although there are multitudinous psychological factors that may lead one to identify as homosexual and lead a homosexual lifestyle, there are, at least superficially, two forms of homosexuality. The first is readily familiar and recognizable: the effeminate homosexuality which favors leopard print and limp wrists. This form of homosexuality is prone to a catty love-hatred of women born out of envy. In some ways, effeminate homosexuality feels itself more at home around women, in no small part because it seeks to emulate women.

The other form is less often seen and even more seldomly discussed: hyper-masculine homosexuality. This form of homosexuality rejects femininity altogether, deriding women for not being men, while worshipping the superficial traits of masculinity. I say the superficial traits because such authentically masculine virtues as chastity, temperance, prudence, and self-sacrifice are neither sought nor cultivated. All that is desired is the muscular male form and the personality traits of aggression and pride.

God made male and female for each other (Genesis 1:27). While effeminate homosexuality seeks to play the role of the female, hyper-masculine homosexuality removes her from the equation altogether. Its narcissism and self-absorption is so complete that it worships only itself and whatever has the hubris to resemble it. Even if it does not culminate in homosexuality, the ideology of the Red Pill still reaches these dizzying heights of auto-adulation, worshipping a warped and fractured image of masculinity so fervently, so devotedly that vehement hatred of all that is “other” becomes in itself an act of worship.

This self-adoration, paradoxically, necessitates a fracturing of the self. Man is incomplete in love without woman, just as she is incomplete in love without man. The Red Pill denies this fundamental truth and thus fractures man, carving out of him that which in fact makes him a man: his heart. The Red Pill encourages men to push themselves to the limit, to lift weights, to live adventurously, to earn inordinate amounts of money, but for what? Simply for the sake of making oneself into one’s own idol (as in idolatry) — not for the sake of the other, for the sake of a woman, because the Red Pill preaches that no woman has value as a woman, only as a fleshy instrument for sex.

The end result of the manosphere’s efforts has been to instill in its adherents a distorted and disordered hierarchy of value, prizing wealth and fashion above the human souls they were made to give themselves to in love. The Red Pill encourages (almost goads) men to achieve and perform, but simultaneously denies that there is anything worth achieving and no feat worth performing, no object to either. C.S. Lewis predicted such a dreary, purposeless dystopia in his book “The Abolition of Man.” Lewis wrote, “In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

What a pitiable and miserable existence the Red Pill renders: sex without soul, achievement without meaning, work without purpose, nothing worth living or fighting or dying for, just one’s own self. Another great Cristian author, G.K. Chesterton, pithily summarized such an existence: “Yourself, yourself, yourself — the only companion that is never satisfied — and never satisfactory.”

The Way of the Cross

Surely the Red Pill’s depressing, stifling conclusions can’t be correct, surely the cancer of feminism hasn’t succeeded in actually killing its host civilization, surely there must be some hope.

There is. The moral and spiritual diseases of both feminism and the Red Pill are both cured by the cross of Christ. That way lies true manhood and masculinity. Where the Red Pill whines that feminism has ruined everything, Christ says, “Behold, I make all things new” (Revelation 21:5). Where the Red Pill suggests that there is no way forward for men or women, Christ says, “Take up your cross and follow me” (Matthew 16:24). Where the Red Pill extols promiscuity and degeneracy, Christ commands, “Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48).

And more than this, Christ shows us how to be real men. The flashy images of bodybuilders and Bugattis that populate manosphere websites and social media feeds suddenly pale next to an image of one Man, not clad in designer athleisure but stripped of both his clothes and his flesh, adorned not with a Rolex or a pair of Ray-Bans but with a crown of thorns — one Man, hanging upon a tree, breathing His last.

The 20th century Catholic priest Josemaría Escrivá once explained, “The school of love has a name: it is sacrifice.” Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is the greatest image of manhood that ever existed. On that cross, Christ exemplified and embodied the perfection of every masculine trait: the strength to carry the sins of the world, the courage to submit to His own death, the humility to hang naked, nailed to a tree, the self-sacrifice He made of His life, and the love He poured out upon the entire world as it scorned Him and mocked Him.

Real manhood is not to be found in the Red Pill, nor is the manosphere’s response to the cancer of feminism the right one. Real manhood is to be found in taking up your cross and following Christ, even if it means following Him to death.

Kamala Harris’s Hypocrisy On ‘Women Having Miscarriages In Toilets’

It almost seems ridiculous to point out that a politician did something hypocritical, but Kamala Harris inverted reality in an especially egregious way during her first (and hopefully last) vice presidential visit to an abortion facility last week. As part of her ongoing campaign against life, she claimed, “I have heard stories of — and have met with women who had miscarriages in — in toilets.” Like most of Harris’s speeches, she had said it all before. The vice president shared a video clip of herself repeating the same story on “The View” in January. Harris said she could not believe states still resist abortion “in this year of our Lord 2024,” before saying, “Women are having miscarriages in toilets.”

Harris presumably said this because she believes having a miscarriage in a toilet is a grave injustice to mother and child. Yet Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden are actively promoting the outcome they claim to be fighting. The Biden-Harris administration has boasted in its proposed 2025 budget it has done all it can to “protect access to abortion, including medication abortion,” and it has taken numerous steps to shut down efforts to halt the distribution of abortion pills.

But having a miscarriage in a toilet is precisely how chemical abortion works. Don’t take my word for it; listen to the abortionists themselves. In a website titled “How does the abortion pill work?” Planned Parenthood notes, “The abortion pill process has several steps and usually includes 2 different medicines: mifepristone and misoprostol. You can also have an abortion using only misoprostol.” The abortion cocktail “causes cramping and bleeding that empties your uterus. The pregnancy tissue will come out through your vagina. The process is very similar to an early miscarriage. … For most people, medication abortion feels like having an early miscarriage.” Planned Parenthood has a list of items for mid-abortion women to “make you more comfortable.”

“Sit on the toilet,” Planned Parenthood’s abortion pill website tells women.

It’s not even merely the United States; the British abortion business BPAS instructs abortion-minded mothers that their aborted child’s remains “can be flushed down the lavatory or wrapped in tissue, placed in a small plastic bag and put in the dustbin [trash can].”

This is not a new phenomenon that Harris, or any reasonably informed person, might not have heard. It dates all the way back to the very first “M&M trials” of the abortion pills in Des Moines in 1994. “I aborted at 6:30 on Friday night. I heard it fall into the toilet. It looked like a blood clot. I cried when I knew it had passed,” recalled “Patient 001.” It permeates the medical advice abortionists give mothers along with the mifepristone and misoprostol that induce the miscarriage-like abortion.

Leslie Wolbert took Planned Parenthood’s advice. Leslie had a chemical abortion using RU-486 at age 21. “I thought I was dying,” because of the pain caused by her cramps, she said. “I was crying hysterically and begging to die because the pain was more than I could handle. I was sweating like crazy and on the toilet while throwing up too.” In the shower, “I bled so much that it clogged the drain.” When she looked down, she saw “the ‘blood clot’ or the ‘blob of tissue’ that the clinic talked about. It was my baby that was clogging the drain of the shower. I had to turn off the water, get out, and clean it up myself and then I flushed it down the toilet.”

“It was even more horrifying than it sounds,” Leslie swore in an affidavit for a 2013 Supreme Court case.

Wolbert’s story is cited in the Supreme Court case to reverse FDA approval of the abortion pill — a lawsuit the Biden-Harris administration has fought tooth-and-nail.

Unfortunately, Leslie’s story is the norm, rather than the exception. “I looked down, and I screamed,” said one mother. “It was not just a blob of tissue. I gave birth to what looked like a fully formed, intact, 14-week-old fetus covered in blood. I scooped my baby out of the toilet. I sat on the floor, and held him, and cried.”

Part of the problem of self-managed abortions comes from discovering the reality of human life, alone, when it’s too late. Mary Szoch, director of the Center for Human Dignity at Family Research Council, has written in The Washington Stand, “It’s hard to put into context the damage caused to a mother who expected to see a clump of cells and instead sees her visibly recognizable unborn child delivered dead into the toilet.” Her words were echoed by “Courtney,” who recounted the grief she experienced precisely over her deceased child’s final resting place. “My cramps were very intense and painful,” she said. “My baby was disposed of in a toilet. A toilet.”

Sometimes the baby doesn’t just look fully-formed. One grieving mother sued Planned Parenthood claiming that during a brief telehealth session, the abortionist miscalculated her full-term pregnancy at six weeks and gave her a prescription for the abortion pill. As a result, in May 2020, the woman gave birth to her dead-but-fully-formed, 30-36 week-old baby on the toilet. “At approximately 3:00 am, while sitting on the toilet, Plaintiff gave birth to a fully formed, stillborn baby boy named J.T.,” says the 2021 lawsuit. “Plaintiff was shocked and traumatized when she saw the lifeless, fully-formed baby in the toilet covered in mucous, blood, and the placenta.”

The abortion industry regularly tells its patients to dispose of their babies in the toilet, and not just during chemical abortions. Dr. Kathi Aultman, a retired OB-GYN and former medical director for Planned Parenthood of Jacksonville, described how a woman once came to her experiencing “prolonged bleeding from a late-term abortion.” The woman’s story shocked Dr. Aultman to the core. The injured mother “described being given medication and then being left in a cold room overnight with no blanket or call button. The next day, she was given more medication, and eventually told to sit on the toilet and push. She delivered a living 20-week-old baby boy into the toilet, where he drowned.”

“The experience traumatized her,” wrote Dr. Aultman.

A counselor at the Dr. Emily Woman’s Health Center in The Bronx told one woman experiencing a late-term abortion what to do if she passes a third-trimester baby in her hotel room. “If it comes out, then it comes out. Flush it,” she said.

The (now deceased) abortionist Carman Landau gave the same advice to a 27-week pregnant woman at Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico. If the child passes, she should “sit on the toilet” and “not move until we come and get you.”

The abortion industry will inevitably claim these “sting” videos were “heavily edited” and imply they are untrustworthy (although Live Action has shared its full, unedited footage of various investigations). Those disinclined to believe Live Action can’t explain away Planned Parenthood and BPAS, nor even numerous left-leaning news outlets.

In a 2022 story published on the feminist website The 19th, republished by PBS (at your expense), a woman named Emma Texas took misoprostol. When it kicked in, Emma “could hardly walk from the pain,” so her boyfriend had to “physically steer her to the toilet.” Since the baby survived that abortion attempt — so much for Planned Parenthood’s medical advice — she took both abortion pills and aborted her baby. “That medication abortion was the most painful experience I’ve ever had in my life,” Emma remembered. “I literally said to my boyfriend — who, that time, knew better and just stayed with me the entire time — I said, ‘I just want to die.’”

The cries, the anguish, the heartbreak of these women are being muffled, multiplied, and ignored each time Kamala Harris and other elected officials promote the use of abortion pills. Women’s suffering is ignored, drowned out by the campaign cash that politicians rake in each election cycle from the abortion industry. These stories should be repeated over and over again, until the manufacturers of the abortion pill note one of its prime side effects is intense grief.

Kamala Harris should spend more time listening to these women and less time hypocritically supporting the industry that victimized them.

HAWAII: Democrat’s Bill HB2079 Would Legalize Child Kidnapping for Sex Change

by Austin Martin, Chair, Hawaii Libertarian Party

The Hawaii Kidnapping Bill (HB2079, ‘Relating to Health’) is among the worst proposed laws of this legislative session.

Awaiting Senate action after passing the House, HB2079 grants a de-facto immunity and asylum in Hawaii for any kidnapper who claims to be helping a child receive so-called ‘gender-affirming’ treatments.

The bill’s intent to legalize interstate kidnapping is outlined in the text:

§583A-208 – Jurisdiction declined by reason of conduct:

(d)  In making a determination under this section, a court shall not consider as a factor weighing against the petitioner any taking of the child, or retention of the child after a visit or other temporary relinquishment of physical custody, from the person who has legal custody if there is evidence that the taking or retention of the child was for the purposes of obtaining gender-affirming health care services for the child and the law or policy of the other state limits the ability of a parent to obtain gender‑affirming health care services for the child.

Testimony in support of HB2079 comes from Oregon-based QueerDoc.com which describes itself as, “a telemedicine-based gender affirming clinic.”  QueerDoc arrogantly announces, “the medicine and science are not up for debate” and enthuses about 100s of mainland telehealth practitioners who “can issue a prescription for estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone blocking medications at that telehealth appointment.”

Far from unbiased, QueerDoc has an agenda for our children.  The clinic was founded by an MD who describes herself as “they” and on her website touts “lived experience as a nonbinary femme and are SUPER queer themself, enjoying queer burlesque, vintage fashion, and their queer, kinky, poly family!”

Most of this bill is a series of loopholes, redefinitions, and special opt-outs of legal norms all in service of making Hawaii a sanctuary for underage sex change surgery.  Amendments to deep and highly specialized areas of the law work together in the service of legalizing the truly unthinkable.

The Hawaii Kidnapping Bill’s unique and unmistakable true intent is to allow legal protections for any non-parent with sufficient access and means to remove a child of any age from their home state, and to bring them to Hawaii in the name of receiving “Gender Affirming Care” – so long as they could not receive said ‘care’ in their home state.

The many sections of Hawaii Revised Statutes affected by the Hawaii Kidnapping Bill are designed to trigger a series of child-custody ‘loopholes’ that cause inter-state barriers to be systematically removed, so long as the instigator says the magic words: “Gender Affirming Care.”

The bill accomplishes its perverse ends by a ‘reinterpretation’ of a critical section of the Uniform Child-Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) which governs interstate child-custody proceedings, and amending over a dozen other laws, to exempt any petitioner from the oversight offered by Hawaii’s Family Court system.

The bill’s proposed amendments to the UCCJEA redefine a family-court emergency, to allow any person “acting as a parent” to obtain emergency temporary custody against natural parents who decline to provide their children so-called “Gender Affirming Care.”   Natural parents’ refusal to provide sex-change procedures would be treated as being of the same legal weight and severity as actual physical abuse or child abandonment.

The bill reads:

§583A-204, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended by amending subsection (a) to read as follows:

(a)  A court of this State [has] shall have temporary emergency jurisdiction if the child is present in this State and the child has been abandoned or it is necessary in an emergency to protect the child because [the]:

(1)  The child, or a sibling or parent of the child, is subjected to or threatened with mistreatment or abuse[.]; or

(2)  The child has been unable to obtain gender‑affirming health care services.

This language plainly redefines a custody “emergency” to mean “unable to obtain gender‑affirming health care services.”

The rewriting of this uniform, nationwide custody law also undermines and threatens Hawaii’s participation in the UCCJEA.  The whole point of our Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act is uniformity.  If Hawaii passes HB2079 and stops returning children to other states, we risk being unable to secure the return of any Hawaii child who is taken out of state to pursue a custody battle.

The court that prevails in exercising jurisdiction first, usually maintains jurisdiction for the rest of the case, both practically and statistically speaking.  Under the proposed language from HB2079, once ‘emergency jurisdiction’ is sought and approved by the Hawaii Family Court, several critical timelines begin to toll for the legal residency of the child to determine which court will have the ultimate say in final custody determinations.

The next phase is the so-called ‘temporary orders’ hearing. This section of HB2079 creates another loophole that can be easily exploited by a motivated kidnapper to keep a stolen child for longer than the short-term ‘emergency jurisdiction’ alone would allow.

The loophole specifically reads:

(d) The presence of a child in this State for the purpose of obtaining gender-affirming health care services shall be sufficient to meet the requirements of subsection (a)(2).”

Subsection (a)(2) governs what a court must do when the child is not clearly a legal resident of the State.

The UCCJEA prohibits this kind of abuse of temporary placement – as the original language of (a)(2) along with requirements (A) & (B) below shows us:

§583A-201 Initial child-custody jurisdiction.

(a)  Except as otherwise provided in section 583A-204, a court of this State shall have jurisdiction to make an initial child-custody determination only if: …

(1)  This State is the home state of the child …or…

(2)  A court of another state does not have jurisdiction under paragraph (1), or a court of the home state of the child has declined to exercise jurisdiction on the ground that this State is the more appropriate forum under section 583A-207 or 583A-208, and:

(A)  The child and the child’s parents, or the child and at least one parent or a person acting as a parent, have a significant connection with this State other than mere physical presence; and

(B)  Substantial evidence is available in this State concerning the child’s care, protection, training, and personal relationships;…

Under the proposed language from HB2079, these UCCJEA requirements are magically deemed “satisfied” and replaced–by using three magic words: “Gender Affirming Care”, if the child is from a state that has sex-change laws deemed insufficient by Hawaii and/or the natural parents are not providing sex-change ‘treatments.’  The kidnapper–who may be a non-relative– is treated by the Hawaii Family Court like a good Samaritan who will be granted temporary custody of a child stolen from his or her biological parents.   No recourse nor due process is available for the affected victims and their families in their home state.

Local parents are also stripped of Hawaii Family Court recourse because HB2079 places their failure to provide access to so-called ‘Gender Affirming Care’ in the same category as child abuse, or more specifically, medical neglect.   There is no meaningful due process for any family that is accused of medical neglect.  There is no provision for legal representation or even notification of parents.

This bill goes to great lengths to enable outrageous practices across state lines.  It aims to build long-term and short-term cases against parents who are otherwise perfectly fit – solely based on their sex-change viewpoint and/or the laws of their state.  It allows any motivated adult to kidnap children with impunity from any state deemed insufficient in its sex-change laws.

In the recent Geanna Bradley torture-murder case , her legal guardians allegedly exploited telehealth for months or even years to hide their alleged torture of Geanna.  Yet HB2079 allows telehealth practitioners to prescribe sex-change hormones to juveniles:

§329-     Prescriptions; gender-affirming health care services.  (a)  Notwithstanding this chapter or any other law to the contrary, for the purposes of providing gender‑affirming health care services, a practitioner who is licensed in this State may prescribe schedule III and IV controlled substances, including testosterone:

(1)  While the practitioner is located outside the State; and

(2)  Without conducting an in‑person consultation with the patient; provided that the practitioner shall prescribe the controlled substances via a synchronous audio-visual telehealth interaction

According to the text, a single telehealth Zoom call is all it would take: after that, upon filing a petition to exercise emergency jurisdiction to a Hawaii court, instantly, the kidnapping of any child legally becomes a civil case and no longer open to prosecution as a criminal matter – denying victims and their families the help of federal or state law enforcement to return their children before permanent harm is done, and also forcing the out-of-state family to travel to Hawaii to be present for hearings. If the kidnapper has a long enough head-start and the family doesn’t suspect them, by the time they find out what is happening, it could already be too late.

If the home state claims the child was kidnapped and attempts to escalate a criminal case – the bill’s authors, disgustingly, have thought of that possibility too:

§323J-6  Denial of demands for surrender.  Notwithstanding any provision of chapter 832 to the contrary, the governor shall deny any demand made by the executive authority of any state for the surrender of any person charged with a crime under the laws of that state when the alleged crime involves [the provision or receipt of,]:

(1) Seeking, receiving, paying for, or [assistance with,] inquiring about reproductive health care services[,] or gender-affirming health care services;

(2) Providing or responding to an inquiry about reproductive health care services or gender-affirming health care services;

(3) Assisting or aiding or abetting in any of the conduct described in paragraph (1) or (2); or

(4) Attempting or intending to engage in or providing material support for (or any other theory of vicarious, attempt, joint, several, or conspiracy liability derived therefrom) conduct described in paragraphs (1) to (3),”

Laws contrary to the public policy of this State.

(a)  A law of another state authorizing a civil action or criminal prosecution based on any of the following [is] shall be declared to be contrary to the public policy of this State:

(1)  [Receiving, seeking, or] Seeking, receiving, paying for, or inquiring about reproductive health care services[;] or gender-affirming health care services that are lawful under the laws of this State;

(2)  Providing or responding to an inquiry about reproductive health care services[;] or gender‑affirming health care services that are lawful under the laws of this State;

(3)  [Engaging in conduct that assists or aids or abets the provision or receipt of reproductive health care services;] Assisting or aiding or abetting in any of the conduct described in paragraph (1) or (2); or

(4)  Attempting or intending to engage in or providing material support for (or any other theory of vicarious, attempt, joint, several, or conspiracy liability derived therefrom) conduct described in paragraphs (1) to (3)[,in accordance with the laws of this State].

HB2079 would forbid the entire State of Hawaii, including the Governor, from disclosing records or extraditing any kidnapper charged in another state, so long as the kidnapper alleges that the purpose of taking the child was to provide access to gender affirming care. It would forbid the courts from returning any child kidnapped from their home state under these auspices by nullifying any direct criminal charges. The authoritarian bill even forbids sending any information about whether the child has been subjected to life-changing procedures, like sex-change surgeries, even if the biological parents obtained help from the other states’ Governors, or if other authorities were to make formal legal demands.  It would leave out-of-state parents completely in the dark and at the mercy of distant kangaroo courts. It even forbids the extradition of anyone charged with a crime in connection with ‘helping a child to receive Gender Affirming Care’, granting effective immunity for the actions of interstate kidnappers, so long as those actions are claimed to be in service of helping the child access Gender Affirming Care, even if they are wanted fugitives for those acts in another state.

Please let that sink in for a moment.

The Hawaii Kidnapping Bill also makes it a crime to interfere with the kidnappers or to disclose any data about the ‘Gender Affirming Care’ with anyone other than the kidnapper-petitioner, even if ordered by another court.

All this is predicated on nothing more than a single telehealth Zoom call as ‘evidence’ for the life-changing decision of an interstate judicial child custody determination.

It mandates nondisclosure by every last ‘mandatory reporter’ professional and care provider that could conceivably influence such a proceeding, placing a permanent professional gag order on whatever is done to the abducted children, no matter what authority or expert is doing the questioning.

It would be a crime under State law to comply with any oversight or investigation into the kidnappings from outside of Hawaii. Inside Hawaii, the situation would only be different if the family consented to give their children sex-changes; if not, then the provisions, when taken together, may form a direct bar to anyone requesting this information for any purpose contrary to promoting access to Gender Affirming Care. (The most relevant sections on this inquiry include: §323J-2, §323J-3, §323J-4, §451J-12). It appears that any family in Hawaii who does not consent to such care would not have access to records.

The authors of the Hawaii Kidnapping Bill have made a very distinct legislative package designed to facilitate abusive behavior. If it passes, the odds of an out-of-state family ever getting their child back from Hawaii legally would be slim.  This law provides for atrocities against vulnerable, trafficked minors – with no legal protection or recourse for defendants and victims, and full protection for the perpetrators.

HB2079:  Text, Status –  Passed Third Reading in the House, March 5, 2024, with Representative(s) Chun, Souza voting aye with reservations; Representative(s) Aiu, Alcos, Garcia, Gates, Holt, Kila, Kong, La Chica, Lamosao, Martinez, Matsumoto, Pierick, Quinlan, Ward voting no (14) and Representative(s) Cochran, Woodson excused (2).

How Illegal Immigration Defeats the Pro-Life, Pro-Family Movement

The impact of illegal immigration fill our TV screens, crime blotters, and morgues every day. But too few Americans appreciate how lawlessness at the border advances other liberal policies. Illegal immigration gives Democrats extra votes in Congress and greater control over all three branches of government. It forces you to spend even more of your tax dollars on transgender procedures and masks the failure of big-spending government programs. Most offensively, it drowns out your voice in your own government.

Democrats draw artificial power for all of their plans — including expanded abortion and transgender procedures — from a seemingly unrelated issue: counting illegal immigrants in the U.S. census. Under the Constitution, the number of congressional seats, Electoral College votes, and federal funding each state receives depends on its population. Lumping in illegal immigrants and resident aliens with native-born Americans gives sanctuary states undeserved power. This opaque issue exploded into the open last week, when Senate Republicans introduced a measure to give you back the full sovereignty you are due as an American citizen — and Senate Democrats shot it down.

Senator Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) introduced the Equal Representation Act (S. 3659 and H.R. 7109), which would ask census-takers if they are U.S. citizens — and count only U.S. citizens when apportioning congressional seats. Chuck Schumer’s Senate would not allow a vote, but on March 8, Hagerty attached it as an amendment to a $460 billion spending package. Senate Democrats predictably voted against an honest census en bloc, 45-51. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) joined with the Democrats to give them an anti-accountability majority. Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) claimed the measure attempted to “attack vulnerable, underrepresented groups,” because “our country has never excluded undocumented individuals from the apportionment process.”

But Hirono is wrong. The U.S. Census Bureau explains the Constitution’s enumeration clause (Article 1, Section 2) did not count “Indians not taxed,” because these individuals lived “under some sort of separate sovereignty recognized by a treaty, and did not vote or perform other duties related to citizenship.” This held until the American people granted U.S. citizenship to all tribal members born on U.S. soil in the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, signed by President Calvin Coolidge. By definition, non-citizens have not been granted citizenship — although three states and the District of Columbia allow non-citizens to vote in elections, and only seven states prohibit it (New York City would be on that list absent constitutional limitations.) Non-citizens should not have any impact on the course of U.S. politics. Yet the same politicians continually crowing about mythical Russian attacks on “Our Democracy” want illegal immigrants to shape the course of our everyday government.

Counting non-citizens in the U.S. census has a palpable impact on Congress, transferring power from conservative states to liberal ones. A report from immigration scholars found that counting non-citizens in the census redistributes eight congressional seats: It gives extra seats to California (3), Texas (2), New York, New Jersey, and Florida (one each); and it takes seats away from Alabama, Idaho, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio, Rhode Island, and West Virginia (one seat each). Illegal immigrants alone transfer one seat each from Ohio, Alabama, and Minnesota to California, Texas, and New York.

Imagine a Congress without Eric Swalwell, Ted Lieu, and Maxine Waters. In their place, we would have an extra Jim Jordan, and Alabama voters wouldn’t have had to choose between conservative incumbents Barry Moore and Jerry Carl on Super Tuesday. The scholars similarly broke down some of the congressional districts with the largest share of non-citizens. Among them is New York’s 14th district, represented by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Thus, the legally dubious policy of counting non-citizens in the census empowers the most radical left-wing voices. The prescient John Zmirak wrote in 2019, “Open Borders Equals Abortion.” Today, open borders equals abortion, porn in school libraries, and transgender surgeries for children.

It bears noting, these figures came from 2019, before the Biden administration added an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants to the U.S. population. Without mass deportations, the next redistribution of voting power will be even greater.

Of course, none of these radical representatives truly represent illegal immigrants. Leftists count illegal immigrants much the way slave states lobbied to count slaves: Slaveowners wanted to make their slaves do double labor, working in the fields and giving slave states more political power. Child labor and human trafficking remain a concern for illegal immigrants, as well. “Undocumented migrants” hold down labor costs, undercutting U.S. citizens’ wages (especially black citizens) while handing blue states a greater share of the federal budget and political representation.

Although the immediate impact falls on Congress, counting illegal immigrants in the census also affects the other two branches of government. These illicit congressional seats give states additional votes in the Electoral College, which determines the presidency. Since the president appoints Supreme Court justices, an inaccurate Census creates a whole-of-government distortion of democracy.

Counting illegal immigrants not only gives liberals the votes to implement left-wing policies, it forces you to pay for them. Census figures directed $2.8 trillion in federal spending through 353 federal programs in 2021, the U.S Census Bureau reported. Before the pandemic, the greatest census-related cost to U.S. taxpayers came from Medicaid: The lower a state’s median income, the more money it gets, so it pays to pad the numbers. Now, consider: Medicaid programs in 26 states and the District of Columbia cover so-called “gender-affirming care” (cross-sex hormone injections and/or transgender surgeries). A total of 83% of America’s sanctuary states cover transgender procedures through Medicaid. Overcounting their population means you foot more of the bill for these life-altering procedures. Additionally, eight of the 10 states that cover abortion-on-demand through Medicaid are sanctuary states — and AOC has led the charge to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal taxpayer dollars from funding most of these abortions.

This policy should concern fiscal conservatives, as well. Counting non-citizens in the census generally subsidizes high-tax, high-regulation states at the expense of low-tax, fiscally responsible states. Data from the 2020 census showed U.S. citizens fleeing California, New York, and Illinois (all high-tax, sanctuary states) in favor of Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These citizens take federal funding with them — unless blue states can plug the gap with illegal immigrants and non-citizens, effectively transferring wealth from U.S. citizens to foreigners and their left-wing political leaders. “While people continue to flee Democrat-run cities, desperate Democrats are back-filling the mass exodus with illegal immigrants,” said Hagerty.

The Left has reacted radically each time someone suggests this policy, which would bolster citizenship and move America one step closer to constitutional order. The U.S. Census asked about citizenship until the question was removed from the 1960 census. The Left’s histrionics when President Donald Trump tried to reinsert the question into the 2020 census underline how closely they guard their ill-gotten money and power. After the vote, Haggerty declared, “Democrats’ unanimous opposition to this commonsense measure confirms that they’re using illegal aliens and sanctuary cities to increase their political power.” Indeed, I have long argued that the Left’s position on every policy in Washington can be explained based on whether it increases or decreases their political power. It is the one thing that explains everything the Left does.

Jesus said, “The children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light” (Luke 16:8). This scriptural truth plays itself out daily in Washington, D.C. While Christian voters hide our talent in the earth, those dedicated to foisting extreme policies on the nation use every lever to impose their agenda. They are apparently willing to pile up the bodies of Laken Riley, Kate Steinle, and an untold number of angel families in the process.

Christians would point out that the Bible repeatedly condemns false weights and measures (Leviticus 19:36Deuteronomy 25:13Proverbs 16:11Proverbs 20:10; and Proverbs 20:23), thereby excluding efforts to mix non-citizens into a census intended to represent the American people. The Bible provides precedents for taking a census only of citizens (Exodus 30:12Numbers 26:4II Samuel 24:1) and excluding some residents (Numbers 1:49). Enrollment in this census sometimes qualified non-citizens (II Chronicles 2:17) and citizens alike (Numbers 14:29) for unique civic responsibilities.

The story strikes me personally, as members of my own spiritual tradition prepare to observe Lent. During this time, we say a beautiful ancient prayer which begins, “O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, and idle talk.” The thousands of crimes the government documents at the hands of illegal immigrants illustrates the ways an insatiable thirst for fleeting, earthly power hurts some, kills others, and destroys the souls of those so afflicted.

Of course, the best actress Oscar given to a movie that glorifies sociopaths, pedophiles and a mad scientist who is an abortionist

Poor Things is a 2023 film directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and written by Tony McNamara, based on the 1992 novel by Alasdair Gray. Poor Things is called a “black comedy” although I didn’t laugh, and “steampunk” which is defined as  a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retro-futuristic technology and aesthetics.

In the case of Poor Things retro-futuristic technology is actually a pornographic film that includes abortion, pedophilia and an array of sociopaths, from a suicidal mother, the killing of an unborn child, horrible experiments of a mad scientist on multiple women, a sociopathic and murderous husband, a sociopathic lover and of course the film’s justification and normalization of wholesale, no pun intended, prostitution, writ large.

After watching the film “Poor Things” we expected that it would receive the Best Picture award at the 2024 Oscars. Keep reading to find out why.

We believe that this film should have been titled “Perverted Things” here are some, but not all, of the reasons why:

  1. The movie begins with a woman Bella Baxter, played by Emma Stone, jumping off a bridge. What the viewers don’t know until much later in the film is that Bella is pregnant and by jumping off of the London Bridge Bella is not only killing herself but also dooming her innocent unborn child to death. Remind anyone of Planned Parenthood?
  2. The movie includes Dr. Godwin Baxter a horribly disfigured mad scientist, played by William Dafoe, who finds the pregnant woman Bella who drowned and then proceeds to remove her brain and replace it with her living unborn child’s brain. He had to kill the baby to complete his experiment in organ transplanting.
  3. Dr. Godwin Baxter is insane and was abused and disfigured as a child by his father. He then became a physician who plays God by creating monsters via organ transplants. Dr. Baxter does not adhere to the Hippocratic Oath, which requires a new physician to swear, by a number of healing gods, to uphold specific ethical standards. Instead Dr. Baxter creates horrible monsters, like Bella.
  4. The pedophile is Duncan Wedderburn, played by Mark Ruffalo, who by happen stance comes across the child-like Bella and begins to seduce and have sex with Bella multiple times during the film. You see Bella has the brain of her own baby and is mentally a child in the body of a woman. Sickness indeed!
  5. After Bella dumps Wedderburn, she becomes a prostitute. Multiple scenes in the film are pornographic to say the least. It’s even worse when you understand that emotionally Bella is a child.
  6. After here time in a French brothel, where Bella becomes among other things a lesbian, she finds her way back to her creator Dr. Baxter, who she calls “God.” There she becomes her own type of monster and carries on Baxter’s experiments with glee.
  7. In the end Bella becomes an enlightened sociopath that takes revenge on her abusive husband Max McCandless, played by Ramy Youssef, by at the end of the film replacing his brain with that of a sheep.

So, for those who laud this film and award this film I say to you that you are promoting the worst ideas, ideals, social afflictions and medical malpractices in the world.

Bravo for your degeneracy Hollywood. And as for the Oscar’s Board of Governors, well you all are most deserving of your future award — a special place in Hell.

My Favorite Part of Biden’s SOTU Speech Is Knowing It’s The Last One He’ll Give

Nothing was more evident than America is slipping away fast. EVERYONE must work on getting out the vote. That is our job. Thank you President Trump. Nothing is more important.

I can’t remember when I watched a speech so full of rage and hatred as the OBiden SOTU. Does OBiden need rage and yelling to be able to speak to an audience? Is there a drug for that? I don’t know about you but all I got from this speech was the Democrats want is to kill babies with abortion, remind blacks that they are to stupid to be able to get a photo ID to vote, castrate children with LGBTQ+ and go to war.  Then he yelled at us for not paying our fair share of taxes. Did he forget about his hidden cash that he never paid taxes on?

Watch Missouri Senator Eric Schmitt’s comments.

He also listed the problems America is facing but he had no solutions except to lay blame at something else. Boy is he out of touch.  High inflation is the fault of the business making the product., High interest rates is the fault of those granting credit.  Millions of people invading us on the border is the fault of congress who won’t give him enough money to process more people and shorten the time to become a citizen and vote. Lastly Climate Change, so give up your beef, stove, air conditioning, and guns. You won’t be comfortable, have energy or be able to protect yourself but that will fix the climate.  Do remember that the economy is doing great if you are an illegal. He lied about cutting the budget and the deficit and added 15 million new jobs and thousands of manufacturing jobs are on the way.  He couldn’t even say Laken Riley’s name correctly. He called her Lincoln. The Democrat/Globalists clapped like seals and I thought my head would explode. Too many lies for one day all at once.

Here is the problem as I see it. The American people are getting sharper. They are  beginning to reject this control and Globalism being pushed upon us. We are learning that their empty irrational words are meaningless and if we fight we win.  Every thing they are trying on us, every trick, every lie, every policy is failing.  Each week we will dissect a few so you can prepare with a plan. Let’s take Obamacare.

Obama’s Health Czar, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel’s Complete Lives System of Universal Healthcare is the blueprint for Obamacare. Complete Lives System of Universal Healthcare rations healthcare by limiting care for those under age (children under 12) and over age 55. We are the useless eaters. Ezekiel is the brother of Rahm, never let a crisis go to waste, Emanuel. Everything is connected.

This rationing is called the Obamacare death panels and was exposed by Betsy McCaughey, LT Gov of NY. The Government in collusion with Bankers and Major corporations determine the type of care through codes. The codes determine what doctors prescribe and get paid and what insurance will cover for your ailment.  This is one size fits all healthcare, Universal Care, no one wants.

When Sarah Palin tried to warn about the “death panels ” in Obamacare, she was vilified. Today we know she was right.

More and more doctors are discussing the truth about the vaccines and the goal of Covid to assist in depopulation.  Dr. Naomi Wolf and her team of 3000 doctors, scientists and researchers, are continuing to find the lies and cover ups of Big Pharma, NIH, Fauci, and FDA.

They have been testifying in front of the House and Senate committees.

Instead of investigating the Big Pharma lies and harm to humanity, Affirmative Action Graduate, DA Letitia James, is investigating the Beef industry because of climate change. The Dem/Globalists want us to eat crickets not beef.

Beef is an important protein necessary to provide energy. Do they want you lethargic?

If getting vaccinated is so crucial and a “national emergency” why is OBiden is flying unvaccinated people all over the country and dropping them off without protection?  Why are unvaxxed Americans the problem and unvaxxed illegals are not?

To add insult to injury OBiden has altered Medicaid which was supposed to be a state run healthcare program for low income Americans. It has now become Healthcare, Food Service, Rental assistance for illegals paid for by the American taxpayer.

The American taxpayer is also paying for LGBTQ surgery on minors promoting the LGBTQ lifestyle.

All of this and more you will find in the 625 earmarks as part of the CR’s continually passed by the RINO, House. These Affirmative Action Graduates RINO/Democrat/ Globalists will not be happy until America and the dollar are gone forever. That is the goal.  We are currently printing $1Trillion every 100 days. How much longer will that last?

In the second part of the show you will hear what started the awakening of America, the Tea Party.  The Tea Party sewed the seeds, the movement evolved and took root. Today the leaves, flowers and new plants are growing. They are spreading in new places and it is beautiful to see. Thank you President Trump for helping us pick out the weeds.

Instead of attacking the symptom, we will help you tackle the problem. Insane spending for one. In a few months I believe America will change forever. Who do you want as your leader :Obiden the lame or Trump the strong? Vet your candidates.

Remember: 

All Globalists want is Money Control and Power. They can only get Power if we give it to them. Don’t give them yours. Challenge them with the truth. Doing Nothing is affirmation. The Regime will not go quietly, Prepare.  Share with your 5.   So join me today.

Feminist Gender Theorist Explains Hamas Raping Jewish Women is ‘Resistance’

Feminist gender theorists begin by declaring that women don’t exist and then conclude by justifying their rape and murder.

Judith Butler has always been ahead of her time.

She was ahead of her time in adopting pronouns and in promoting gender theory. And all the way back in 2006, the feminist gender theorist and UC Berkeley academic declared that Hamas was progressive.

“Yes, understanding Hamas, Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the Left, that are part of a global Left, is extremely important.”

Like most fanatics, Oct 7 only made Judith Butler double down on her belief in the progressive qualities of Hamas.

“We can have different views about Hamas as a political party, we can have different views about armed resistance. But […] the uprising of October 7th was an act of armed resistance,” Butler recently declared.

Butler’s brand of gender theory had begun the deconstruction of the idea that women exist. A few years ago, Butler was claiming the “trans” brand and arguing that “the category of woman can and does change, and we need it to be that way.”

Feminist gender theorists begin by declaring that women don’t exist and then conclude by justifying their rape and murder.

Leaked Files Reveal WPATH’s Awareness of ‘Debilitating,’ ‘Potentially Fatal’ Effects of Trans Procedures

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) has a long history. The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh wrote that WPATH “is the organization that major hospitals and gender clinics cite as the all-important authority on so-called ‘trans healthcare.’” Controversial at its core, WPATH has faced immense criticism over the years from those who do not support gender transition procedures, while at the same time receiving strong support from those who see cross-sex hormones, puberty blocking drugs, and surgeries to remove healthy organs as “gender affirming care.”

Despite losing over 60% of its members between January 2023 and January 2024, “WPATH is somehow now taken seriously as the standard-setter in the field, by major hospitals and medical associations,” Walsh wrote. But in reality, he continued, WPATH “is maybe the single greatest scam in modern medicine. … The WPATH of today is the proud product of decades of quackery and sexual experimentation. It is a threat to public health and in particular to children.”

On March 4, the U.S. think tank Environmental Progress released leaked files from WPATH that “revealed that the clinicians who shape how ‘gender medicine’ is regulated and practiced around the world consistently violate medical ethics and informed consent.”

It continued, “In the WPATH Files, members demonstrate a lack of consideration for long-term patient outcomes despite being aware of the debilitating and potentially fatal side effects of cross-sex hormones and other treatments. Messages in the files show that patients with severe mental health issues, such as schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder, and other vulnerabilities such as homelessness, are being allowed to consent to hormonal and surgical interventions. Members dismiss concerns about these patients and characterize efforts to protect them as unnecessary ‘gatekeeping.’”

Most unsettling about the leaked files, experts have pointed out, is that they prove the alleged “medical professionals” are keenly aware “they are offering minors life-changing treatments they cannot fully understand.” On Wednesday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins highlighted on “Washington Watch” that the “injuries described in the files” that WPATH members are aware of “include sterilization, loss of sexual function, liver tumors, and even death.”

Concerning the leaked files, Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a pediatric endocrinologist and executive committee member of the American College of Pediatricians, observed on “Washington Watch” that “it’s a very large battering ram that’s hit the wall … that has been hiding all of the information that they know, and they willingly discuss among themselves.” He added that the files prove that the procedures they are doing on “these kids are clearly experimental [and] not based on science.”

He explained that doctors have been warning against WPATH and their practices for years in hearings and courts — efforts that have been repeatedly “shot down.” Van Meter emphasized that WPATH considers their work as “saving grace” and that they “save lives.” For years, WPATH has claimed that any contrary belief “is a bald-faced lie, and is politically motivated by right-wing conspiracy theorists,” he said. “That’s been their mantra since we’ve known them on the scene.”

Ultimately, he argued, the “WPATH secrets that have now been leaked show that [they have] no scientific background [and] that they are living and repeating lies over and over again. It’s quite shocking.” But he also described it as a “gift,” since it exposes the truth that “this is not good for children.”

Perkins added, “It exposes the fact that many of these entities that are held out as experts have been compromised by the political agendas of these ideologically driven individuals.” He continued, “This is what happens when this ideology, untethered to truth and ethics, mixes with science. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should do it.”

Especially since “it leads to horrible outcomes for children,” Perkins contended. Children that “can’t drive … can’t get a tattoo, but we’re letting them cut off body parts and … make them think they’re changing their gender.”

Van Meter agreed. “This needs to be shouted from the … hilltops: ‘Stop.’ The whole world must stop this nonsense, this insanity. We have hurt hundreds of thousands of children irreparably since this whole process began in the mid-2000s, and we’ve got to put a stop to it.”

Perkins asked if the leaked information would be enough to make “the medical associations … stop and rethink” what they’re doing. Van Meter responded, “That would be the intellectually correct thing to do.” However, what unsettled the doctor the most was how “casual” and “flippant” the members of WPATH seem to be discussing this. “The ideology is embedded so deeply in their minds that I don’t think they really care,” he remarked.

“It’s sad,” Perkins concluded. “It is absolutely sad. What an indictment against our culture to allow this to occur.”

At Last! A new bill in Congress to hold Big Pharma companies responsible for Covid vaccine injuries!

Hats off to Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, for authoring this bill!

While so many of us have been sounding the alarm over the experimental mRNA Covid “vaccines” and fighting localized battles as we were able, Rep. Chip Roy’s bill may be the colossal breakthrough we’ve all been praying for!

Not only would it be a godsend to the many thousands who’ve been badly injured by these novel injections, but it also loudly proclaims to the entire nation that these vaccines were not, and are not, safe!

Chip Roy is one brave man. His quote below says it all:

“I am introducing the LIABLE Act to empower Americans to remove crony federal liability protections for COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers and empower injured Americans. The American people deserve justice for the infringement on their personal medical freedom and those medically harmed deserve restitution.” (Emphasis mine)

Gotta now watch his back!

Here’s more from an Epoch Times articleProposed legislation introduced on March 5 would strip COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers of liability protections, enabling U.S. residents injured by the vaccines to sue the companies.

The bill, proposed by Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), would retroactively remove protections from the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act) for COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers. (Emphasis mine)

The bill itself reads as follows: No federal law … may make the manufacturer of a COVID-19 vaccine immune from suit or liability, or limit the liability of such a manufacturer, with respect to claims for loss caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from the administration to or the use by an individual of a COVID-19 vaccine.

And now we need to flood our Representatives with calls, letters, faxes and emails, exhorting them to support this bill!

More Deception from Once Reliable Medical Sources: Paxlovid — Part 2

Please read Part 1 here. As bad as the multiple failings in the Johns Hopkins article I outlined in Part 1 were, there is an even greater abdication of medical responsibility by Johns Hopkins.

Their Mission Statement says: “The mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine is to improve the health of the community and the world by setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research, and clinical care.”

Maybe I don’t understand what “standard of excellence” means. It seems that it says that Johns Hopkins will objectively provide the public with the latest scientific health research as to what is in citizens’ best interest to do (or not do).

In other words, when Johns Hopkins discusses a pharmaceutical option for COVID — e.g., Paxlovid — (or anything else) they would objectively and thoroughly:

  1. honestly describe the possible benefits,
  2. accurately explain all the potential downsides, and
  3. objectively identify reasonable alternatives.

As my original commentary outlined, they did a woeful job of both #1 and #2. Here I’d like to address #3, which was completely missing.

Well over two years ago (January 2022), after doing some research, I published a spreadsheet of the various pharmaceutical options for COVID-19 early treatment — as I was not able to find this posted elsewhere in a layman easy-to-understand format. I compared the official and non-official options on several key criteria. Since then I have updated this spreadsheet every month or so. (This info is one of many things to be found on my COVID website: C19Science.info). Here is the latest data.

Since this article is just about Paxlovid, I put together a very condensed version: Condensed Comparison of Paxlovid to Some Other Options.

To see the links and more explanations refer to the uncondensed version. (Please pay attention to the note there clarifying that I am not a medical professional, etc.)

Note that Paxlovid has two columns in the upper (Effectiveness) part:

  • a) the first column was the evidence used by the FDA (a single study done by Pfizer) to grant Pfizer an EUA (Emergency Use Authorization), and
  • b) the second column is the current number of scientific studies of Paxlovid done by numerous independent scientists. Compare the concluded ET effectiveness…

What this data indicates about these COVID early treatment options is:

1 – An alternative to Paxlovid is Vitamin D. Based on 11 scientific studies of 44,000± patients, it has about three times the effectiveness (60% vs 21%). (The results of Peer-reviewed early treatment studies = 57%. The results of early treatment Randomized Control Trials [RCTs], after exclusions = 65%.)* The data.

Safety & Cost — Vitamin D has: no serious medical side effects, no evidence of a rebound effect, and no usage restrictions. Further, it has long-term safety data, it does not require a prescription (OTC), and the cost is minuscule.

2 – Another alternative to Paxlovid is Ivermectin. Based on 38 scientific studies of 59,000± patients, it also has roughly three times the effectiveness (62% vs 21%). (The results of Peer-reviewed early treatment studies = 61%. The results of early treatment Randomized Control Trials [RCTs], after exclusions = 66%.)* The data.

Safety & Cost — Ivermectin has: only minor potential medical side effects, no evidence of a rebound effect, and no usage restrictions. Further, Ivermectin has long-term safety data and the cost is very low.

The question is: why didn’t the Johns Hopkins article say anything about alternatives to Paxlovid — since scientific data indicates that they may be superior options?

To be fair, the same question applies to the FDA, CDC, AMA, WHO, Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, the Mayo Clinic, the mainstream media, etc., etc. They have all shed their scientific suits, and have proudly dressed themselves in political correctness panoply.

Please watch this talk given by Dr. Scott Atlas, last week. It is chilling to hear what he observed going on at the highest levels of our country, regarding COVID policy.

As always, the most effective defense is Critical Thinking.

PS: Still no response to the polite email I sent to the Johns Hopkins article author.

* This data is not on the above table, but can be found by following the links of the full version.

“Lost In Space” Transgender Colonel Pushes Pronouns To Win Wars

Why do we wonder why there is a recruiting crisis in our military?

It’s simple, our military is no longer focused on winning wars, like Space Force Lieutenant Colonel Bree Fram, it is focused on Diversity, Inclusion and Equity — DIEing not fighting.

WATCH:

Transgenders are mentally ill and should not serve in our Armed Forces—period.


“Lost In Space” Transgender Colonel Pushes Pronouns To Win Wars

It is sad to think that a nation once as strong as ours could fall so quickly under such a ridiculous agenda

By Milt Harris

This isn’t the first time I have written about the current state of our military, or about Space Force Colonel Bree Fram. Fram is transgender, a man pretending to be a woman that has somehow managed to get into this position of power. By promoting someone like Fram up the chain of command, the military is disregarding that this is form of delusionary mental illness. This is condoning the denial of both biology and science for no other reason other than to be politically correct. The result has been a softening of our forces and low recruitment rates in at least three out of four military branches.

The military has not only errored in accepting this farce as normal behavior, but they have also promoted it as though it is customary. The U.S. Armed Forces has used everything from animated cartoons to an enlisted drag queen in recruitment videos. Then they bemoan the fact of low recruitment, acting stupefied as to what the problem is.

This isn’t a mystery. Combine a society that is becoming more and more divided by liberal leftists teaching hatred of country and moral debauchery at every turn, with a military command that has swallowed the Kool-Aid, and you have a disaster forming in the shadows of what used to be the Greatest fighting force in the world.

Wrong beliefs can become a societal virus and the LGBTQ movement has become one. The left now demands that you not only accept the lifestyle of these deluded individuals they expect active participation, otherwise you will be labeled as homophobic and bigoted.

POST ON X:

More Deception from Once Reliable Medical Sources: Paxlovid, Part 1

If we can’t trust Johns Hopkins, what established sources are left?

I was periodically updating my webpage on the effectiveness of all the popular COVID early treatment options, and came across this current article:

Feel free to read it, but be forewarned that it is woefully deceptive. I can understand that when Paxlovid first came out (late 2021), medical professionals would be enthused to endorse it, as the only study done said it was 88% effectiveNice!

But is that our scientific knowledge in 2024? NO! I sent the JH author a polite email:

Aliza:

I’m an independent scientist (physicist) who has done considerable research on COVID.

As such I read with interest your recent article on Paxlovid, stating that it is “a tremendous tool that’s completely underutilized”.

FYI, I also read your CV.

[Note to substack readers: she has no science credentials.]

The key message in your article is premised on your statement:

“Paxlovid is extremely effective when taken within five days of symptom onset. In clinical trials, it reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by almost 90% in unvaccinated people.”

I’m writing because that is (regretfully) a major misrepresentation of our current knowledge of Paxlovid.

Please consider the following three facts:

Fact one: In late 2021 the FDA gave Pfizer an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Paxlovid as a COVID-19 early treatment.

Should your readers be alerted to the fact that the FDA has not approved Paxlovid, but rather given it a very different EUA? Then your readers could use their own judgment whether or not we remain in a COVID-19 emergency.

Fact two: when the FDA gave Pfizer an EUA for Paxlovid for COVID-19 early treatment, it was based on just one (1) study (on 2,100± people), done by Pfizer, that showed that Paxlovid supposedly had an 88% effectiveness rate.

Should your readers be alerted to the fact that there was only one initial study prior to the EUA, and that it was done by the drug manufacturer — clearly not an unbiased source?

Fact three: Since the FDA gave Pfizer the EUA for Paxlovid, many independent scientists have conducted studies about the effectiveness of Paxlovid. To date, some 57 studies on Paxlovid have been completed, with 42 being peer-reviewed.

Should your readers be alerted that these independent studies (on 120,000± people) have concluded that the actual COVID-19 early treatment effectiveness of Paxlovid is only 21±% — a far cry from the Pfizer study claiming 88%?

I’m taking the time to write as I’ve always respected Johns Hopkins as an unbiased, accurate source, of current medical information.

Sincerely,

It’s been over a week now, and I’ve received no response of any kind.

Some may think I’m being a bit harsh on Johns Hopkins, but the letter sent was a stripped-down version of what I could have said. (I thought that the chance of a response would be inversely related to the length of my email.)

For example, Fact 4: Harvard published a late 2023 study that concluded that 20±% of those taking Paxlovid, were likely to have a rebound result where they get COVID again. (Compare that percentage to the average chance of 2±%.)

That appears to say that taking Paxlovid results in a net zero result! (It has a 21±% chance of a positive result, but a 20±% chance of a negative one…)

Note: I shouldn’t be surprised, but I was, when the same JH person felt compelled to write a later piece pooh-poohing the COVID rebound matter.

As a proud optimist, I thought that the AMA, well-known medical establishments (like Johns Hopkins), etc., would continuously analyze new scientific COVID studies, and realize that they made some earlier bad calls regarding COVID.

Maybe (for legal reasons) they wouldn’t outright apologize (although they should), but I did NOT expect them to continue with the same politically correct posturing WHEN THEY SHOULD NOW KNOW THAT WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IS WRONG!

However, this JH article about Paxlovid seems to indicate that now that they find themselves in a hole, their reflex solution is to keep digging.

  • FYI #1, although this commentary is about Johns Hopkins, their politically correct campaign is the norm, as there are dozens of other one-sided Internet articles advocating more use of Paxlovid (e.g., here and here). I chose Johns Hopkins as they should be above political science, and instead be focused on real science.
  • FYI #2, I could write quite a bit more about this matter, but this is not intended to be a scientific paper, but rather an overview for the public. That said, I will do Part 2 in a few days about another very important omission in this JH article…

I’ll end this part with some GOOD NEWS.

  1. This late 2023 article reports that Paxlovid usage has precipitously declined. “Sales of Paxlovid are down 97%, year over year… and Pfizer lost $4.7 Billion in write-offs.” Citizens are getting informed and voting with their feet — excellent!
  2. As even more evidence of the weakness of Paxlovid, the FDA has recently officially announced that the EUA for Paxlovid will expire on March 8th, 2024! Note 1: Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, but when I searched the Johns Hopkins site, I could find no mention of this important FDA announcement, made back on 1-29-24. Note 2: I could find nothing about this EUA change elsewhere!}

Once again this all reinforces the extraordinary importance for citizens to become Critical Thinkers — and it all MUST start in K-12 Science classes…

PS — I’m legally required to make clear that I am not a medical professional. Always consult with a qualified physician before taking (or stopping to take) any medication.

Who is Speaker Mike Johnson Really?

“I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.” — Andrew Jackson

“The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity. Today it is becoming harder to speak out, with the inception of the Patriot Act, the president has legislated free speech to be a crime.” — Frank Serpico

“Our country is now taking so steady a course as to show by what road it will pass to destruction, to wit: by consolidation of power first, and then corruption, its necessary consequence.” —  Thomas Jefferson

“And I am saying, how about the other two branches? And putting the pressure on our representatives in the Senate and the Congress, and the court system. They should be counter-acting this corruption, but they are sitting there silent.” —  Sibel Edmonds

:Despotic power is always accompanied by corruption of morality.” — Lord Acton


When Mike Johnson was elected as Speaker, I had my suspicions regarding his capabilities.  A few things immediately came to light which made me doubt he’d be any better than McCarthy.  I voiced that opinion in emails and one of my friends commented, “But he prays in the House Chapel every morning.”  I said, “So do the Muslims.”

I’ve always felt that anyone who proclaims their Christian faith over and over in public is hiding something.  Mike Pence comes to mind.

My intuition aside, Mike Johnson is only one man.  He has to deal with the Stalinist Party and the neo-con Trotskyites in his own party.  With the Senate and the White House in the hands of the Democrats, his opportunities are few.  However, he can and should completely terminate corrupt and unconstitutional legislation that would be catastrophic to America.  And that includes standing firm against the $95 billion foreign aid package, which includes $60 billion for Ukraine, $14.1 billion for Israel, and around $9.2 billion for “humanitarian assistance” in Gaza passed by the Senate without any border policy changes. Within this bill is a hidden impeachment clause that could backfire on Trump if he’s elected.

McCarthy to Johnson

Speaker Kevin McCarthy was ousted after Rep. Matt Gaetz filed a motion to remove McCarthy for not keeping his promises.  His term as House speaker lasted only nine months.  Republicans dropped him because he broke his promises and made backroom deals with Biden and House Democrats.  McCarthy’s Leadership PAC received funding from Sequoia Capital, an important investment firm promoting business in China.  Critics say McCarthy “shut down” investigations into the CCP’s deals with Sequoia, BlackRock, and other Wall Street firms.

Congressman McCarthy only voted with the US Constitution 50% of the time.

On October 25, 2023, with a vote of 220, Mike Johnson was elected Speaker of the House.  He votes with the Constitution only 67% of the time.

Johnson calls himself a Constitutional attorney, yet he is a proponent of Mark Meckler’s Convention of States (CoS), which is heavily funded by the Koch organizations.  As I’ve stated in past articles, the CoS is an Article V Constitutional Convention.  Council on Foreign Relations and CoS board member, Robert George, has already rewritten the Second Amendment of our unalienable Bill of Rights.  This deceitfully promoted convention is not simply to propose new amendments; it is to totally replace or change our founding document.

The House Republican majority is weakening.  Since Mr. Johnson has become Speaker, Rep. George Santos has been expelled from Congress despite being “innocent until proven guilty.”  The charges against him were brought by United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.  The House ousted Santos without a conviction or without having committed treason. Democrat Tom Suozzi replaced him.

McCarthy decided to leave the House at the end of December 2023.

The Republicans controlled the House with 221 Republicans to 213 Democrats, making them a majority, but now they’ve lost two.  Rep. Matt Gaetz is again being investigated by the House Ethics Committee.

Should Gaetz be forced to resign, the House would precariously hold the majority by only five votes.

Hannity’s Interview with Speaker Johnson

In introducing the nation to the new speaker, the first hour of Sean Hannity’s interview was a one-on-one interview with Mike Johnson.

Johnson spoke about President Biden’s mental decline which is obvious to both Americans and foreign leaders.

He was asked what he believes, and commented that people need only open their Bibles to understand Mike Johnson.

He mentioned that both Chip Roy (R-TX) and Byron Donalds (R-FL) were working on plans for Continuing Resolutions (CRs) cutting spending by eight percent, securing the border and protecting our military and veterans.  They’ve yet to come up with anything but “clean” CRs and have not even attempted a budget. Both Roy and Donalds support an Article V Constitutional Convention.  (Roy actually nominated Donalds for Speaker.)

Speaker Johnson ended the first hour saying, “Look, this place is filled with people of good faith, deep conviction and they understand the necessity of working together.”

I don’t think so, Speaker Johnson.

His first bill, a $14.3 billion dollar aid package to Israel passed the House 213-200, but was shut down in the Senate and slammed by President Biden.  Nice theatre though.

Johnson, who inherited the problem of a potential government shutdown when he was elected to the role after weeks of paralysis, saw 93 members of his conference in the Republican-controlled lower legislative chamber vote against his proposal.  Almost all Democrats, 209 members, voted for the plan with two voting against it.  Why did 93 Republicans vote against it?  Because almost all “clean continuing resolutions” prolong government funding at current levels without any policy changes.  They don’t want repeats of McCarthy’s CRs, they want changes made!

On February 29th, the House passed another clean CR; 207 Democrats joined 113 Republicans in a 320-99 vote to approve the short-term stopgap measure, which buys Congress more time to agree on funding for the full fiscal year that began Oct. 1.

Again, nothing is in these CRs about the border!  Do the American people realize what this is costing us?  An illegal alien family of four can get government assistance to the tune of $20,000 a month.  You read that right, $20,000 a month!  Watch the eight- minute video!

The 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) bill passed on December 6th, 2023.  It does not overturn the Pentagon’s policy of reimbursing servicemembers who travel to obtain abortions, and it drops House language which would have blocked coverage of transition surgeries for transgender troops.

But there’s more….

Speaker Johnson tossed into the “must-pass” bill yet another extension of Section 702 of the FISA Act; it’s not surprising that he wanted to rush the bill through without the possibility of amendment. Section 702 allows the government to intercept and retain without a warrant the communications of any American who is in contact with a non-US citizen. It is clearly a violation of the Fourth Amendment which is supposed to protect Americans against unreasonable searches and seizures.  The NDAA also contained a $600 million gift to the corrupt government of Ukraine.  Senate votes. House votes.

By a vote of 250 to 180, the House voted against the legislation that would send $17.6 billion to Israel, with 166 Democrats and 14 Republicans opposing the measure. It fell short because it was introduced under an expedited procedure requiring a two-thirds majority for passage. The vote was largely along party lines, although 14 Republicans opposed the bill and 46 Democrats supported it.

In the first vote to impeach DHS Mayorkas, four republicans voted against the impeachment.  One wonders why Johnson called a vote if he didn’t know that Ken Buck (R-CO), Tom McClintock (R-CA), Blake Moore (R-UT) and Mike Gallagher (R-WI) would vote against it.

In the second vote, Blake Moore switched, bringing the vote to 214-213 for Mayorkas’ impeachment.  Doesn’t say much for the 213 who voted against impeachment of the man who is allowing America’s invasion from China and third world countries.

The only Palestinian member of Congress, Rashida Tlaib, was censored for her anti-Semitic rhetoric by House Republicans and Democrats with a vote of 234-188.  The punishment is one step below expulsion from the House.  She should have been ousted like Santos. She’s a Hamas Trojan Horse.

Second Hour Interview

In the second hour of the Hannity interview, House Republicans were brought in and a number of them spoke about various topics. Steve Scalise (R-LA), Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Tom Emmer (R-MN) are seated next to Speaker Johnson.  Scalise votes with the Constitution 67% of the time, Stefanik 60% and Emmer 70%.

They conversed about border security, Biden and his son, Hunter, energy independence, fiscal sanity, law and order, the rule of law and moral clarity. Hannity asked them about the prospect of domestic terrorism with an open border, the purported weaponization of government, as well as the cognitive state of Joe Biden.

Elise Stefanik is a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, as are other House Republicans.  On February 17th, I received a form letter from Speaker Johnson.  He requested that we help his loyal friend, Elise Stefanik win her re-election, as she knows exactly what is at stake in 2024.

Mike Lawler (R-NY) and Byron Donalds (R-FL) were also featured with Speaker Johnson.  Lawler votes with the Constitution only 35% of the time.  As for Byron Donalds, he’s no friend of liberty and freedom.

Donalds, has been working with the Democrats to advance digital currency. At the Collier County Republican Men’s breakfast in July of 2022, Byron Donalds said, “The Democrats have promised it will never be used for tracking law abiding citizens.”

Is he naïve or one of them?  The Stalinist Democrat Party is who put J6ers in prison.  It is why Speaker Johnson courageously blurred the faces of people at the Capitol on January 6th on the portions of the videos released.

However, only .04% of the videos are available to the public.  The House January 6th Committee deleted more than 100 encrypted files days before GOP took majority.  Totally unconstitutional, but then consider who was on the committee.  Johnson is allegedly trying to have those files decrypted.

In October of 2022, at Alfie Oakes’ Seed to Table, another public meeting was held where Donalds again was promoting digital currency.  Alfie Oakes is also promoting the destruction of our 1787 Constitution by advocating an Article V Convention, just like Byron Donalds, Ron DeSantis and Mike Johnson.

Donalds is also tied to Americans for Prosperity, a Koch organization, who are for open borders, gay marriage, abortion and UN Agenda 21/30. LinkLink.  They are also funding and promoting another Constitutional Convention, just like Soros’ Open Society foundations.

A few years ago, Byron’s wife allegedly tried to do a hostile takeover of Mason Classical Academy. There’s a lot of bitterness in the community because they wanted to run the charter school, Mason Classical Academy, which has one of the top ratings in the country.  They did not conceive of the charter school, but had, at one time, been on the board. Kelly Lichter and her husband Nick were the founders. As a state Representative, Byron tried to write bills to make it easier for his wife to accomplish the takeover.

At a Republican Executive Committee meeting a few months ago, Donalds and his top staff member, Larry Wilcoxson, tried to start a public argument and disagreement with Kelly Lichter.  They were backing her leftist opponent. Tensions boiled to such a point that Florida Politics reported it.  A video lasting two minutes and 19 seconds mostly shows Donalds, with staffers Jesse Purdon and Larry Wilcoxson, speaking inaudibly with Lichter in a corner of the store.

Larry Wilcoxson allegedly takes home a six-figure salary.  He is the top aide to Donalds and is his best friend.

Wilcoxson has been arrested multiple times including for child molestation. Link

He was arrested in 2014 for grand theft auto, a third-degree felony. In 2006, he was charged with three counts of child molestation of a 13-year-old girl in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2008, Wilcoxson was arrested for charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated battery with a weapon. He had previously been fired for allegedly exposing himself to a female school custodian at Indianapolis’ Donnan Middle School while he was a substitute teacher. In 2006, Collier County records indicate Wilcoxson was the defendant in several traffic cases and a paternity suit.

Many of the family grassroots leaders call this man, Wilcoxson, “Byron’s thug.” Before anyone backs Byron, they need to do their homework, and that includes Donald Trump.

Why choose the neo-con Trotskyites, the WEF members, and the likes of Byron Donalds to speak with Hannity as top Republicans?  Why weren’t true conservative House members like Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Eli Crane (R-AZ), Matt Rosendale (R-MT), Clay Higgins (R-LA), Thomas Massey (R-KY) and a few others featured with Johnson?

Unspoken Issues

The invasion at the southern border should be at the top of concerns, yet everything but the border has been discussed.  Four months has passed since Johnson became speaker, and the border is still wide open.  The filth flowing into our country will vote in the November elections, and the increase in crime is already obvious. Ten million illegal aliens have entered our country under Joe Biden, including Chinese communists, Middle East terrorists, and criminals from third world nations.  It is the Cloward-Piven Marxist strategy to overload the system and collapse the economy.

There was no mention of the alleged 2020 election fraud, the J6 prisoners, the January 6th videos being totally released, how they will succeed in closing the border, health care, our military, the perversion in education, how deeply they will cut spending, who those cuts will impact, and the massive debt.

Donald Trump’s name was never mentioned.

Neither was abortion.

Speaker Johnson had killed the abortion ban in Louisiana in 2022 while serving as US Congressman.  Pastors Jeff Durbin and Brian Gunter discussed exactly how Johnson killed the pro-life bill that would have banned abortion in Louisiana.

You’ll want to see the 26-minute video between these two pastors and how disappointed they were.

Pastor Gunter called Johnson’s tactics, “Pragmatism rather than principle.”

All the national, state and local pro-life groups were against this bill, HB813. (Loss of Louisiana funding?)  Mike told Pastors Durbin and Gunter that he agreed with the bill, but it was the wrong time to pass the legislation since they have a razor-thin majority in the US Congress, the Louisiana state house and the Governorship. That was his excuse.  The Pastors asked, “Is there ever a wrong time to do the right thing?”  Amos 5:15, “Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.”  Congressman Johnson threatened these Baptist pastors that if they moved forward with this bill, it would damage their careers.

We are 34.4 trillion dollars in debt and the interest payments on that debt dwarfs all other government spending!

A crash will be inevitable.  U.S. National Debt Clock: Real Time (USDebtClock.org)

There is no more time for “business as usual.”
