VIDEO: Two Healthcare Insiders Blow Whistle on Alleged Medical Fraud

Project Veritas released a new video today that features two healthcare Insiders blowing the whistle on their employer, Aegis Living, for engaging in alleged elder abuse and medical fraud.

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

  • Cassandra Renner, Aegis Living Insider: “I came to Project Veritas because I believe that Aegis Living is grossly taking advantage of severely vulnerable adults through fraud on care plans.”
  • Renner: “I don’t think that the neglect is coming directly from the care managers, as much as it is coming from the facility making the choice to be short-staffed.”
  • Renner: “We can probably, on a good day, get about 50% of what these people are paying for done.”
  • Renner: “I had found out that my signature had been forged multiple times. Someone signed for me to claim that I had completed a service that I specifically did not sign because it was not completed.”
  • Jonathan Schlect, Aegis Living Insider: “I was told by the care director, Jen, if I didn’t [forge signatures], I would be out of compliance with my job and not following her direction, and I’d be written up.”
  • Schlect: “Adam, who was another ACD [Associate Care Director] replies back [in the group text], ‘Falsify documents. It will pay off.’”

Watch the video:

Aegis Living Associate Care Director, Margie Massa, corroborated Renner’s and Schlect’s allegations:

“If there’s not a signature there [on the document] then that means you didn’t do the service. If I knew who worked that day, then I might jot in an initial because I’m kind of saving their asses too. You know?”

Carbon Tracking Credit Cards

The ability to constantly digitally track and record what we do exposes us to the potential for monstrous abuse.

Witness the use of “social credit” scores by the Chinese Communist Party to intimidate and control.

Now they’re rolling out new CO2 tracking credit cards.  What could go wrong?

Marc Morano posted to Climate Depot that:

The new CO2 monitoring Mastercard called Doconomy debuted in order to enable “all users to track, measure and understand their impact by presenting their carbon footprint on every purchase.” The credit cards feature the slogan on them reading “DO. Everyday Climate Action” and have a personal pledge on the rear of the card boasting: “I am taking responsibility for every transaction I make to help protect the planet.” The Mastercards feature the UN “Global Climate Action” logo on them as well. 

This CO2 tracking credit card is voluntary, yet every day we see a new push to replace voluntary choices with government mandates.

Could we all be subjected to digitally monitored CO2 limits the next time President Biden “loses patience” with us?

Lost in the Chaos: The Danger of Total Politics

Our politics is idolatrous; it claims too much both in scope and certainty.


I’ve spent most of my adult life studying and teaching philosophy, having never lost the sense that the examined life was worth living, and that it is incumbent on humans to reflect on and weigh their actions and commitments. If, however, the current reductionistic assumptions are true, and we are no more than wet robots, my life has been somewhat ridiculous.

If humans are simply a combination of hardware and software better explained by chemistry than theology, and if our values and mores are cultural memes tainted by unjust power dynamics, then the quest to become fully responsible agents is a fool’s errand. As Terry Eagleton notes, a flattened universe goes hand in hand with flattened humans. Postmodern people, unlike earlier nonbelievers, do not experience the loss of God “as a trauma, an affront, a source of anguish,” since they don’t “experience it at all.” There is no tragedy to this loss, since it was never felt as a loss.

Even if the “death of God involves the death of Man,” this, too, is not experienced as loss, since the human is thought so flat as not to possess the “space” in which either God or a self could reside. Not only has the image of God disappeared, so also have those inner depths where a self might hide. Generations raised without God are, for Eagleton, generations for whom culture, psychology, literature, and morality are stuck in the shallows. We view “depth and interiority,” and the self linked to such depths, as belonging “to a clapped-out metaphysics” that we no longer know. It’s now so alien as not even to be knowingly rejected.

Moreover, if reductionism is true, the ancient idea that the soul and the city are analogues to the cosmos, and thus that we ought to live according to nature, is similarly defunct. Cosmos is a “supreme untruth,” to cite Nietzsche; removing God or the Logos from the world order while smuggling the same assumptions into our rationality, is still to refuse to see the real pattern of the world. A thoroughly clear view of reality would see things more starkly. War, again, has become the father of all.

Consequently, it’s hardly surprising to note our obsessions with power and struggle. Not only are there Foucault and Althusser (for the left), but also Bronze Age PervertJulius Evola, and Ernst Jünger on the metaphysics of pain and war (for the non-conservative variants on the “right”). Held in common, however, is an ersatz transcendence, the desperate attempt to replace the kingdom of God with the kingdom of Man, grace with power, and our supernatural vocation with politicized rationality—to immanentize the eschaton, in other words.

Politics is not first; philosophy is prior, and even that is servant to theology. Reversing the order is a drastic mistake, albeit an all but inevitable error for those lost in chaos. When the universe is utterly immanent, when the human is reduced, when culture is simply entertainment, it is hardly surprising that politics will occupy the centre of thought and imagination. Such a politics thinks too highly of itself. Not only does a politics of ultimacy attempt to govern the entirety or totality of human affairs, it also exhibits a finality or completeness in its judgements.

If there is a transcendent reality beyond human control, politics isn’t total—doesn’t include everything—for politics is simply incompetent in some domains of human life. If there is a divine authority, the judgments of politics are not final, for they are subordinate to the judgements of God. In our own moment, politics seems all-encompassing, inserting its snout into what is properly private, personal, or associational, and political judgments seem to be of considerable importance, tantamount to the demanding claims of morality.

Non-totalizing politics keeps in its proper sphere, and does not interfere with religion, family, conscience, and associations. Furthermore, it is prudent, recognizing that while there are intrinsic moral wrongs, there are far fewer (if any) intrinsic political obligations and thus vast space for prudential disagreement. You might prefer policy A while I prefer policy B, and we both might have good reasons for our preferences; neither of us is a moral monster or outside the domain of acceptable society due to our diverging views.

Just now, however, politics seems to be the only game in town—everything is political!—and political views are absolutist, dogmatic, and accompanied by an aura of hyperventilating moralism. Somewhat counter-intuitively, the more we are lost in the chaos, with the human reduced to mere matter and chemicals, and where God is dead, the more fervent and demanding our politics becomes, even though reductionism lacks any capacity to ground or justify any moral or political norms.

A thoroughgoing reductionism cannot in any way justify human dignity, or equality, or justice, for such things simply do not mean anything in a universe in which everything is merely matter in motion. As it turns out, the old fear that religion was a conversation-stopper and resulted in political dogmatism overlooked the more worrisome culprit: the (incoherent) dogmatism of immanentized secularism.

Politics oughtn’t be first, but it has become first, and it has become vicious as a result.

Politics oughtn’t be first, but it has become first, and it has become vicious as a result. Our politics is idolatrous; it claims too much both in scope and certainty. It’s also making our society chaotic, with everything from family reunions to school board meetings to sporting events overly fraught with political implications and danger. It feels as though no space remains for the pleasures that make life sweet, and that are, in the end, our own business. Consider how difficult it has become to have guests over for dinner—the very food is charged with political meaning, and someone will have a moral-political statement to make about it, one made with zealous intensity.

Politics-as-ultimate seems evident on both left and right. Obviously, there’s endless hectoring or lecturing in social settings, as everyone must share his or her expertise, but that’s more bad manners than a harm. More disturbing is the impulse, on both left and right, to want politics to be overly involved and ambitious, to want to use power to solve the human condition, to have the state push thick goals, to overcome the limits and burdens of very human challenges. (I cannot bring myself to sympathize with those conservatives who think parents should be compensated for caring for their own children, for instance. It’s real work, to be sure, but it’s entirely in the domain of your own agency, not the state’s.) It’s all destined to fail, because it’s simply beyond the competence of government, and it’s all too dangerous, with the state absorbing enormous swaths of what ought to be left for civic associations and families.

It sounds boring, I know, but a perfectly decent life can be lived in suburban America. Peter Augustine Lawler used to make this point, and when I was a young man, I thought his claim uninteresting and slightly insipid. Now I agree with him. Yes, suburbs can be kitschy, monotonous places lacking the excitement and culture of the cities or towns. Sure, but there is still no intrinsic reason why their residents cannot read Plato, enjoy the hammer dulcimer, observe their religious duties, listen to Bach, form friendships, brew beer, coach the softball team, start a business, or do any of those things that free people choose in living decent, prosperous, meaningful, morally responsible lives.

The point isn’t about suburbs. The point is that every human lives out the drama of existence in his or her way, and with great risk: they gain or lose heaven, embrace or reject love, bring a child into being or not, form friendships and romances or sink into loneliness, become sages or fools. Every life is a fascinating mystery of agency and conscience, virtue and vice, and that drama can be played out successfully even under the conditions of imperfection.

Even under the conditions of liberalism.

We don’t need politics to absorb all, and we would be well advised to keep the fully human things in their place of primacy, with politics confined within prudent limits and modest aims. If we forget or forgo the primacy of the person, choosing instead the story of power and chaos, it seems likely we’ll lose the cosmos of our own souls.

Maricopa County Canvass Report — Prepare to be “STUNNED!”

Step by step the examination of the 2020 vote, at least in Maricopa County, Arizona, makes clear that absolute fraud occurred removing President Trump from office. There are many who still hold the belief no voter irregularity occurred. That is their right, but pain staking work has been accomplished to at least determine if significant irregularities did occur in the last election, and could those irregularities be corrected so there exists no doubt about the integrity of our electoral process moving forward. Yet there are those regardless of political affiliation who see even that exercise as a waste of time, not necessary, political theatre, grand-standing or at the least sour grapes over a legitimate election loss.

Final Election 2020 Grassro… by Jim Hoft

The Maricopa County Canvass Report will provide you with more ammunition regardless of which side you proclaim. You may also wish to consider the following from the partial findings of the Formal Forensic Evaluation submitted to the Arizona State Senate (the Final Forensic Report of Findings is to follow shortly, and has been submitted to the Senate for review).

  • 168,000 on-demand ballots were ordered on election day – this alone goes against a Court Order that no one was permitted to vote if not registered on or prior to October 15th.
  • 3,981 individuals did vote but were registered after the court order previously stated.
  • 18,000 votes were removed from voting rolls after voting.
  • 74,293 mail-in ballots with no clear indication as to who was the proper and legal registered voter were found.
  • 11,326 people did not show up on voter rolls on November 7th, but appeared on December 4th.

The Maricopa County voting system was not properly maintained or secure, and the anti-virus systems were not updated since August 2019. There was tremendous vulnerability at forensic examination. The Maricopa County Supervisors did finally come forth and reverse all their statements about voting integrity and security stating a breach did occur to the server, but this acknowledgement came in January 2021, well after the election. Likewise thru public records examination the election process was compromised, and discovered that the Registration Server had been breached. Furthermore, it was demonstrated for forensic examination purposes that it only took 10-minutes to breach and access the voting system.
Another major revelation upon full forensic examination showed that Maricopa County Officials did not have access to the voting machines, did not have the passwords to access, nor had they been able to access in any manner – only Dominion had access to their own machines. At forensic examination it was shown that on February 5th, 37,646 requests for passwords on the voting machines were made by four users, and all of this occurred during one day.

In November of 2020, days after the election, Arizona State Rep. Mark Finchem sought answers, especially after a Maricopa Superior Court allowed for a random sample of ballots to prove authenticity of said ballots. It was shown that from 100 random ballots 6% were considered a “highly unlikely match” which equated to a possible 199,980 highly questionable votes. Biden won Arizona by only 10,457 votes. Thus began the quest to get to the bottom of questions brought by hundreds of citizens, and quickly reaching into the thousands, who demanded answers. A Joint Legislative Public Hearing was held on November 30, 2020, in downtown Phoenix, Arizona where Mayor Giuliani brought subject-matter specialists and constitutional attorney specialist, Jenna Ellis to appear before the Joint Legislative Committee over a ten hour day of testimony and evidence. While many elected officials in both parties still refused to acknowledge a problem, painfully slowly a case was made for a complete and formal forensic evaluation with the findings made public through the Arizona Senate. By God’s grace this has been accomplished, and we now wait for the full and complete Formal Forensic Report of Findings.

If, what I believe will be forthcoming happens, we will see a new dimension appear to the highly questionable November 2020 Election. The new dimension will be a proven fraud of the election in at least Maricopa County, Arizona, which will lead to the question of “Decertifying the Election for President of the United States” in at least the Great State of Arizona. Once again, and as I have said on my show ARIZONA TODAY, we have been sailing in unchartered waters, no map, no history to guide us, and if the forensic findings come forward proving a fraudulent election process and results in Maricopa County, then we move to a potential Constitutional crisis.

Biden’s Blunder Could Lead to Israel’s 9/11

The United States careless incompetence in Afghanistan gifted the Taliban a military airport the size of a large town containing $83 Billion of the finest military equipment that included hundreds of aircraft.

We have already seen the Taliban gruesomely using Black Hawk helicopters dangling hanging men as they flew over Afghan towns as a warning to the citizens below.

So for what other evil purpose can they devise for the use of this American treasure trove?

A C130 US military transport plane packed with explosives crashing into a tightly populated urban city would have the same devastating effect as a nuclear explosion. It would be a world shattering statement by a messianic terror organization akin to 9/11.

It would have to be a crazy terrorist organization on a martyrdom mission. The Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS are all messianic jihadists with a deadly hatred of the West and Israel.

The Taliban now possess four American C130 military transport planes.

But would the Taliban try to crash an explosive transport plane into an American city or its capital?

It would certainly be a tempting target for the most well equipped terror group in the world. Sweeping in over the Atlantic to hit New York in another 9/11 style attack must be tempting. They won’t have to hijack a commercial plane. They have their own, thanks to Biden and his military generals.

There is only one problem. The C130 can fly to America from Bagram without refueling but not with a packed payload of explosive material, and there are not many options for the Taliban for refueling. Apart from Iran, no other country would give them landing rights, and a transport plane or two would remove the element of surprise.

So what other country would present a huge and attractive target for the Taliban, or one of its Afghan-based jihadi allies, to attack?

Israel, the one country in the world the Taliban doesn’t recognize. What better Islamic message would it send if it, and not Iran, obliterated the Jewish State.

Just pack a monster-size aircraft full of explosive material and fly it to its target, or targets.

Coming in undetected and crashing into Tel Aviv with a population of over four million would make 9/11 look like child’s play.

With three planes they succeeded in killing 3,000 Americans. With one or two planes they could kill millions of Jews.

Apart from mass deaths and casualties, an attack on Tel Aviv would knock out sensitive infrastructure including power grids, communication and transport systems. It would destroy Israel’s central military command and control center and vital military defense facilities. Depending on its impact location, it could destroy Israel’s major Ben Gurion Airport.

 Whatever remains of Israel would be dangerously exposed to any enemy wanting to move in for the final kill, and we have them in large numbers on our northern, southern and eastern borders.

Such a 9/11 style attack setting out from Bagram airfield and coordinated with Iran, could be an Israel Doomsday scenario particularly if two planes were employed in the deadly mission.

A second plane targeting Haifa would have a devastating effect.   Although the population of Haifa is far fewer than Tel Aviv, just over a million people, it also houses chemical storage facilities that, for years should have been removed to safer locations. A packed plane exploding a large chemical storage plant would indeed produce a mushroom cloud akin to a nuclear blast making the Beirut port blast looks miniscule in proportion.

Is such a nightmare scenario possible?

If the planes were to fly unrefueled from Kabul to Israel with a maximum payload of 44,000 pounds the distance is within reach.

The distance from Afghanistan and NYC is double. So flying a maximum load without refueling would put America out of reach for a covert suicide mission. The Target has to be Israel.

Flying time is just beyond four hours. Taking the land route over compliant countries such as Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, a Taliban or Al Qaeda suicide mission is entirely feasible.

Unless Israel was alerted for such an attack, in advance or on route, it wouldn’t know what was about to hit it until the final seconds.

If Israeli intelligence did not pick up clues that such a mission was in the planning, would its air traffic control be aware of large planes on route to their target flying over countries with which Israel does not have cooperation or open communication? Probably not, until they appeared out of Lebanese and into Israeli air space.

And that would be too late to intercept flying bombs heading to Tel Aviv and Haifa.

The distance from the Lebanon border to the Haifa port is just 45 miles. The C130 has a cruising speed of 335 miles per hour. That is less than six minutes flying time to Haifa.

Would there be time for Israeli air traffic control and the Israeli Command and Control Center to identify these mystery aircraft or scramble a jet especially if the planes had external US Military markings but did not response to radio communication?

Surely more time would be lost as Israel went in search of verification from the US Embassy in Jerusalem? By the time, Israel or the embassy staff made contact with the Pentagon, the explosions would inform them that the planes were our version of 9/11.

A far worse version of 9/11.

Such hesitancy would be understandable, but it would result in the death of a million Israelis or more and the destruction of Haifa and Tel Aviv on a scale unknown since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Such a nightmare scenario is too dreadful to consider, but consider it we must, because the malevolent actors involved in such a mission have the same dedicated goal of all our enemies in the region. To destroy the Jewish State and everyone in it.

Why should Iran continue arduously spinning underground centrifuges to produce the material for a nuclear bomb, then have to fit the bomb onto an aircraft when they can more easily assist a neighboring Islamic regime do the job for them, albeit in a simpler, more straightforward, form? All they have to do is to train pilots to fly the planes, pack them with explosives and send them on their suicide mission.

With Haifa and Tel Aviv gone, Jerusalem and the rest of Israel would be in chaos, exposed to the whims of the combined enemies of Israel, those who have sworn to destroy the Jewish entity and establish a Palestine from the river to the sea.

None of them would shed a tear if the land was burnt to a cinder and the dead included Christians, Druze, and yes, Muslims, slaughtered to achieve the holy mission of Israel’s annihilation.

Does anyone think that Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, even the fanatics of the PLO and PFLP would hesitate before descending on defenseless Jews, to kill them and take their property? Haven’t they done this in the past? Isn’t this what they have been indoctrinated to do by their leaders in Ramallah and Gaza?

If you think this is an unbelievable nightmare scenario, think again and plan for such an Armageddon.  That is the only way to prevent such an outcome in which the mechanics and the intention are there for all to see.

This is a wake up call.

The weak United States was not prepared to attack Bagram to destroy billions of dollars of their equipment. Can Israel do the job? Afghanistan is further than Iran.

This is an existential threat that Israel must solve, and quickly. Before 9/11, Hiroshima and , explodes on Israel.

Media Attempt to Downplay Alarming New Inflation Report

Despite media spin, price inflation is still very much a problem.


It’s no secret that the mainstream media has a left-leaning bias. So it’s not exactly surprising that when alarming new inflation data were released on Tuesday, many journalists and media outlets attempted to downplay the story. After all, rising concerns about inflation could hamper the federal government’s ongoing efforts to massively increase government spending and expand the welfare state.

Here are just a few examples of countless reports that sought to downplay the just-released inflation figures. For one, the Washington Post dubbed the new numbers “an early sign that inflation could be easing.” And CNBC went with a different spin in its headline: “Consumer prices post smaller-than-expected increase in August.”

Meanwhile, many left-leaning commentators and analysts argued that the new data vindicate their claims that recent price inflation is just “transitory.” (Aka temporary.)

Yet when one looks at the actual report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this rosy spin seems utterly unwarranted. It shows that the Consumer Price Index, an average sample of typical consumer prices, rose 0.3 percent in August. This is less than the 0.4 percent increase that had been predicted, prompting the media spin to suggest that August saw “less inflation than expected.” While perhaps true, this is misleading, because the new figures still show prices seriously on the rise.

On an annual basis, from August 2020 to August 2021, prices rose 5.3 percent. That’s nearly a 13-year high!

In particular, energy costs rose 25 percent year-over-year, while food prices rose 3.7 percent. Used vehicle prices rose a whopping 31.9 percent over the last year as well. These are just a few examples of the many ways Americans’ purchasing power—their real standard of living—eroded over the last year due to price inflation.

It might be true that inflation is easing or slowing down, but that’s not the main takeaway here. Prices have still risen significantly! And, as shown in the graph below, comparing August 2021 to August in years past shows that price inflation is still very much a problem. [VIEW CHART HERE]

Ultimately, prices are still rising in alarming ways. That can be traced back to government policies like the Federal Reserve’s printing of trillions of new dollars to fund COVID “stimulus” efforts. Those who want the feds to spend more and grow the welfare state have every incentive to downplay the consequences of fiscal and monetary recklessness.

But don’t fall for the media spin. Everyday Americans suffer the consequences of price inflation when their paychecks don’t stretch as far as they used to. It’s important to look beyond political narratives to understand just how much “stealth taxation” via inflation is really going on.

Yoo-hoo, stupid Republicans

Why the Republican Party does virtually nothing to aggressively counter the relentless charges of racism hurled its way leaves me speechless.


As the spineless GOP turns the other cheek to scurrilous charges of racism, our Republic is being dismantled piece by piece. Make no mistake. The party of race-arson politics is attempting a coup-de-grâce on our two-party constitutional democracy.

In hopes of culminating Obama’s vow to “fundamentally transform” the country he holds in deep contempt, Democrats are projecting every major issue—immigration, voter integrity, pandemic relief, infrastructure spending, education, policing, the military—through a racial lens, with Republicans cast as white supremacists frothing at the mouth for a return of Jim Crow. The GOP’s response to that absurd charge? Ho-hum.

In every election cycle, Republicans sit by in virtual silence while being beaten senseless with the race card. When Democrats point an accusatory finger and let go with smug cries of “racist,” the GOP leadership mimics the subservient fraternity pledge in National Lampoon’s Animal House by dropping their drawers, bending over and saying, Thank you sir, may I have another?

Maybe it hasn’t dawned on the GOP that the party wielding the race card uses it to distract the black electorate from the unmitigated havoc that party has foisted on the quality of life in urban America. That decades-long trail of carnage is so self-serving, so inhumane that it begs to be exposed in the most public way possible.

Where Black Lives Don’t Matter

For most of America’s otherwise storied history, two evil institutions—slavery and segregation—saw to it that black lives didn’t matter. In 1964, hope among Americans of African descent soared when the federal government launched a war on poverty.

Then, in a bitter twist of fate for a people subjected to economic oppression since their country’s founding, that hope would be crushed when the party of government dependency turned the war on poverty into what has become a third evil institution in this country: the New Plantation, aka America’s inner cities. As was true on plantations of the Old South, the New Plantationis a place where black lives don’t matter.

Over the last half-century, trillions of dollars have been spent to help lift the inner city poor, with a mother lode of anti-poverty funding having gone to blue state governors and blue city mayors. So what have these lavishly compensated Democrats done to improve living conditions in urban communities? A short drive through any inner city area in America reveals the SHOCKING answer: not a damn thing.

According to Bob Woodson, a former executive of the National Urban League, 70% of the $22 trillion in anti-poverty funding never reached the disadvantaged people it was intended to help. Instead, the lion’s share was siphoned off by hyper-partisan Democrats who perpetuated inexcusably wasteful bureaucracies that devoured massive sums of anti-poverty funding in ways that did virtually nothing to improve the plight of the inner city poor.

Democrats say their motives are pure. That may have been true—half a century ago. They say then need more time, more money. Another half-century? Another $22 trillion? They deserve no more time and no more money, because they have become jackals who get fat by feeding on the carcass of impoverished black people whose lives they have ruined.

Despite decades of stratospheric social spending, the squalid living conditions in urban America have only gotten worse. By nearly every metric, the Democrat administration of anti-poverty funding has been catastrophic for urban Americans, with the disintegration of the black family as Exhibit A.

When the war on poverty was enacted, the out-of-wedlock birthrate among African Americans was 25%. A half-century later, that rate had skyrocketed to 77%, incontrovertible evidence that the war on poverty backfired in an unimaginably tragic way that would leave generations of young black women addicted to the demeaning lifestyle of government dependency, and generations of young black men saddled with functional illiteracy and arrested psychological development.

As millions of out-of-wedlock babies were born in ghetto neighborhoods, America continued massive spending on new and existing social programs to help lift the black underclass. Nearly all of those programs were overseen by Democrats, with horrendous consequences, especially for young black males.

Having been robbed of a realistic chance for a successful future by the chronically substandard public schools in Democrat-run cities, generations of young black men unable to read or write defaulted to a life of crime, with many destined to end up dead or in prison before turning 20. While urban kids who want to learn have no choice but to attend the wretched schools in the inner city, America’s most prominent Democrats send their own children to top-rated private academies.

For six decades, residents of the New Plantation have been economically consigned to communities ravaged by urban decay, rampant crime, rat-infested government housing, sorry schools, generational poverty and chronic hopelessness, with each election bringing a new round of empty promises from the party that that uses welfare addiction and the race card to win elections. While the black underclass faces a daily struggle just to survive, the Democrats they helped elect live in new homes, drive new cars and dine at exclusive restaurants.

Yoo-Hoo, Stupid Republicans. So What Are You Going To Do?

In 2013, I notified RNC chairman Reince Priebus that I was through sending money to the GOP until it develops a backbone in response to being slandered as a party of racists. I’ve since contributed to campaigns of many Republican candidates, but have not given a dime to the RNC, which still responds with a yawn to scurrilous charges of racism. If America is to be saved, the Republican spine must stiffen!

The decades-long devastation Democrats have foisted on urban Americans is so thorough, so horrific that it’s tantamount a premeditated crime against the most vulnerable people in our society. It’s time for Republicans to stop acting like a pack of trembling Chihuahuas on the issue of race. It’s time to go on the offense by ramming the race card where it belongs—down the throat of the overseers of the New Plantation. The ramming needs to start NOW and continue unabated until Democrats have paid a steep price at the ballot box for the incalculable harm they have inflicted on a disadvantaged segment of society for which they pretend to care so deeply. Break the Democrat lock on the black vote and you break the back of the Democratic Party.

Now is the time for a full-throttle ad campaign that lets voters in battleground states see with their own eyes how Democrats have heaped misery and despair on generations of decent people in the inner city. I will generously contribute to such an effort, and believe millions of other conservatives fed-up with being slandered as knuckle-dragging racists would do likewise.

There will never be a better time to launch a balls to the wall campaign of 30-sec. ads patterned after a nuclear-tipped YouTube produced by Rebel Pundit in 2014,when Obama was in office. The video shows four black ex-cons in Chicago describe in vivid terms how Democrats have destroyed the quality of life in urban America. An ad campaign called “Voices of the Betrayed” featuring real life victims of progressivism’s cynical cruelty could save America by turning the political tide against the party of Marx, Lenin, Alinsky and Obama.

If not this idea, stupid Republicans, what? If not now, when? Next year will be too late. By then, our Republic will have been brought to its knees.

Rep. Mast Blasts Blinken on Afghanistan: ‘We Don’t Need to Hear Lies’

In the first congressional hearing on the botched Afghanistan withdrawal on Monday, Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), an Army veteran and double amputee, blasted hapless Secretary of State Antony Blinken, telling him families of the killed 13 service members deserve real answers over what happened.

Mast queried Blinken about the leaked transcript that showed Biden pressuring Ghani to change the perception of the security situation in Afghanistan prior to the withdrawal of all U.S. forces.

Mast asked Blinken whether President Joe Biden tried to get then-Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to manipulate the intelligence because things were not going well. Blinken said “absolutely not.”

Mast said the families of the 13 service members deserved honest answers. He held up each service member’s photo and spoke about their lives, emphasizing each time that the “family deserves to know” if manipulated intelligence was “why everything went so wrong.”

“I find it hard to believe that President Biden would do that without you being aware of this and these are things that we deserve to know better answers, have better hearings on this, I do not believe a word that you are saying on this,” Mast continued.

When Blinken tried to respond, Mast cut him off, saying: “I do not wish to hear from you. I’m not yielding you a moment of time. I’m not yielding you a moment of time, I don’t wish to hear your lies. I heard your lies when you stepped in front of the camera, I’m not listening..no one should hear your lies.”

Blinken Was on Vacation When Kabul Fell to the Taliban

As the Taliban swarmed into Kabul on August 15, 2021, to put the finishing touches on their conquest of Afghanistan, Blinken, President Joe Biden, and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki were all taking vacations. As The Washington Post reported:

“In June, U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that the Afghan government would hang on for at least another six months. By August, the dominant view was that the Taliban wasn’t likely to pose a serious threat to Kabul until late fall.

“American officials may have been urging [Afghan president] Ghani to show greater urgency. But their own actions suggested no immediate cause for alarm, with officials surrendering to the customary rhythms of Washington in August. On the Friday afternoon before Kabul fell, the White House was starting to empty out, as many of the senior staff prepared to take their first vacations of Biden’s young presidency. Earlier in the day, Biden had arrived [for his vacation] at Camp David, and Secretary of State Antony Blinken was already in the Hamptons.

“But by Saturday, the fall of Mazar-e Sharif — site of furious battles between pro and anti-Taliban forces in the 1990s — convinced U.S. officials that they needed to scramble. How quickly was a subject of dispute between the Pentagon and State Department.”

Immune from Reason: Biden’s Mandate Ignites a Nation [Video]

For most Democrats, creating political distractions is an art form. Not so much for Joe Biden, whose idea of changing the conversation on Afghanistan was starting a civil war over the COVID vaccine. Late last week, when the president threw down his national mandate, it was like taking people’s minds off burnt toast by setting your house on fire. Sure, it got Americans to stop talking about the Taliban, but only because they were on the phone with their attorneys looking for ways to sue the government.

For the White House, it was another catastrophic failure in a presidency littered with self-destructive choices. In just three months, Biden’s approval rating is in the place where he spent most of 2020: the basement. Down 16 points since the summer, the administration is taking on enough water to put out all of California’s wildfires. And yet, there’s no indication that this president understands or cares what’s happening to his country or credibility. He’s too busy wagging his finger at skeptical Americans like an exasperated parent whose “patience is wearing thin.” But Joe Biden isn’t our father, the government isn’t our doctor, and the Democratic Party isn’t our conscience. And until the White House starts treating Americans like adults, and not ignorant serfs, the resistance will only grow.

Dr. Greg Murphy (R-N.C.) has walked the halls of his local trauma center. He’s seen the packed ICUs. And he’s been very clear from the beginning that he believes in the science behind the vaccine. Would he recommend it? Absolutely. “But I do that because I’m a physician,” he pointed out on “Washington Watch.” “The fact that the Biden administration has felt the government needs to intervene between a doctor and their patient is blatantly wrong. It should not happen.” But it is, and we can already predict the fallout. “[The president] is destroying our economy as it is,” Murphy complained. And now, he predicts, we’re going to have thousands of people choose to walk away from their jobs because of a mandate that’s unconstitutional on its face. They’ll go back to taking unemployment, increase the worker shortage, and put employers–who are already dealing with inflation and higher costs–in a bigger bind.

And here’s the frustrating part in all of this, Murphy pointed out. The government isn’t even asking the right questions. While the administration issues these blanket commandments, they’re ignoring a major piece of the puzzle.

“It’s one thing to be vaccinated,” he said. “It’s another thing to be immune.” According to studies, most people who’ve contracted the virus already have antibodies that are just as effective–if not more so–than the man-made vaccine. “So instead of asking, ‘[Are you] vaccinated?’ they should be asking, ‘Are you immune?'”

But the Biden administration is willing to risk an entire workforce collapse to force their will on the American people. Already, hospitals are scrambling because so many nurses and health care workers are resigning. In Lewis County, New York, they’ve had to stop delivering babies because so many maternity workers have quit over the mandate. “We can’t lose our nurses,” Murphy agreed. “There has to be a discussion. An open, honest, and fair discussion… And unfortunately, this administration… doesn’t [care] about the needs of the individual. They only care about the bigger picture and their power and control.”

And they’re paying for it. According to the Trafalger Group, Americans are adamantly opposed to the president’s ultimatum. Almost 60 percent don’t think Biden has the authority to mandate the vaccine in the first place. Fifty-six percent support the governors fighting back–like Brian Kemp (R-Ga.). Of course, we already know the president’s cocky angle on federalism: “I’ll… get them out of the way.” Kemp could only shake his head. “I’ll tell you what, he’s talking tougher to the Republican governors and unvaccinated Americans than he did to the Taliban–which is disappointing, to say the least.”

Like a lot of states, Kemp doesn’t want the federal government bossing Georgia around. “I think folks should get vaccinated,” he agreed, but not because the president ordered them to. “This is all about freedom,” he warned, “because if you allow this to happen now, then what are [Democrats] going to do next? [Are they] going to tell your business what your hours are or when you need to give people vacation? … It’s just on and on. So I think it’s unnecessary. And you know, soon as we can get some details on what the rule is going to be, then we’ll know where the legal fight is [headed and] take our stand.”

Whatever happened to the Great Uniter, Kemp wondered? Instead, Biden is trying to cover up for all of the crises he’s created on the border and in Afghanistan with the most divisive policy in his young term. “I guess they’re just trying to change the narrative in the news media, but I think they’ve underestimated this. I think the more people really realize how much work it’s going to be, and how impossible it’s going to be to do this, they’re going to become just ready to pull their hair out.”

Maybe if the president had been straightforward from the beginning–instead of lying, backtracking, and reversing course–there wouldn’t be such a deficit of trust. But for Americans, who’ve lived through a year of mixed messages from this administration and its candidate before that, the White House has earned the skepticism it’s getting. “The president himself said, ‘Get vaccinated, take your mask off,” Kemp pointed out. “Now they’re mandating that you wear a mask again.” There aren’t enough closets in the White House to hold all of Biden’s flip-flops. Show us the science, and we’ll follow it. Until then, Americans value their freedom and liberty too much to roll over and surrender.

AOC Defends Tax the Rich’ Dress at $30,000 Per Ticket Met Gala

“It’s My ‘Responsibility’ To Party With Elites, ‘Haters’” – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY)


Tax AOC.

She makes Marie Antoinette look like a public advocate. She parades herself in front of millionaire pop stars, wealthy actors, New York socialites, trust fund society swans and members of the glitterati where Individual tickets were $35,000 and tables started at $200,000.

AOC who makes an annual salary of $174,000 as a congresswoman was wearing a “Tax the Rich” dress at an elitist event held in New York City. An event that cost $30k a ticket. In fact, some of the tables reportedly cost more than $275,000. And do you think the folks attending this event were wearing the masks, that they demand the rest of us wear? It’s such a joke. Naturally, the corrupt mainstream media will not expose this blatant hypocrisy.

AOC Defends: It’s My ‘Responsibility’ To Party With Elites, ‘Haters’

By Daily Wire, September 14, 2021

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) tried to defend herself online after she was swarmed with criticism for wearing an emblazoned “Tax the Rich” dress to the Met Gala, where tables could reportedly cost more than $275,000 and individual tickets are priced at around $30,000.

AOC scolded “haters” about the criticism and contended that going to the fancy event with rich elites was actually her just doing her job as a congresswoman in New York City.

“And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public,” the representative wrote via Twitter. “I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”

In the same Twitter thread, Ocasio-Cortez rationalized that the “medium is the message” and emphasized that her designer is a “Black woman immigrant designer.”

“The medium is the message,” read a screen-capped image from AOC’s Instagram account.

“Proud to work with @aurorajames as a sustainably focused, Black woman immigrant designer who went from starting her dream @brothervellies at a flea market in Brooklyn to winning the @cfda against all odds – and then work together to kick open the doors at the Met,” she wrote. “The time is now for childcare, healthcare, and climate action for all. Tax the Rich.”

“And yes, BEFORE anybody starts wilding out – NYC elected officials are regularly invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing our city’s cultural institutions that serve the public. I was one of several in attendance. Dress is borrowed via @brothervellies,” the post continued.

For good measure, AOC added, “All-BIPOC/women/LGBT+ team.”

Ej Dickson, senior writer at Rolling Stone, posted: “Am I the only one who thinks this is really f***ing stupid[?] 1) The dress is ugly, 2) She’s at a $35k per person event and this isn’t nearly the own she thinks it is. 3) The dress is ugly. I mean I love her but come on this is so dumb. Peak girl boss s**t.”

“I’m not even mad at the lack of self awareness or hypocrisy anymore. At this point it’s just hilarious. These people are a giant joke,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) tweeted.

“What makes @AOC a bigger fraud: The ‘tax the rich’ dress while she’s hanging out with a bunch of wealthy leftwing elites or the lack of masks after spending the past 18 months as one of the biggest authoritarian mask Karens in the country?” highlighted Donald Trump Jr.

“A pathetic self-aggrandizing hypocrite,” Megyn Kelly railed against AOC.

“Meanwhile our kids are muzzled & six feet apart all day long while trying to learn but she & these other ‘Rules for Thee but Not for Me’ pols can parade around maskless & in top of each other at the Met Gala bc, SCIENCE,” she added.

Americans Turned Away from Virginia Hospitals Because of Influx of Afghan Evacuees

My latest in PJ Media:

Old Joe Biden’s handlers are bringing 94,000 Afghan evacuees into the United States, at the cost of $6.4 billion of your money. The overall cost, however, may end up being even higher than that, and even the establishment media’s most committed far-Left propaganda organs are noticing. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that “[t]he mass arrival of Afghan evacuees last month, many in need of medical care, wreaked havoc on Northern Virginia’s hospital system — prompting a regional emergency response group to assume oversight after one hospital became overwhelmed with patients and federal officials lost track of where some Afghans were hospitalized, officials said.”

This has involved the denial of care to Americans: “a hospital near the Dulles Expo Center that federal officials designated as a go-to spot for medical treatment began running out of available beds, forcing the hospital to turn away non-Afghan patients who weren’t in need of critical care, said Nickerson, who also directs the Northern Virginia Hospital Alliance and declined to name the hospital.”

Here in a nutshell is the America-Last policy of Biden’s handlers: America’s infrastructure is crumbling, there are many people in need right here, working Americans are laboring under a tax burden that is already crushing and is about to get worse, and, as all this is going on, migrants are given priority over Americans for medical care and the American taxpayer is expected to foot the bill. “Area leaders have been asking the Biden administration to pay for the mounting cost of keeping track of the hospitalized evacuees and for giving them rides back to the Dulles Expo Center — where they have been temporarily housed — after a federal contractor took hours to retrieve some of the evacuees who were ready to be discharged.” In that sentence, “Biden administration” means hardworking Americans who have jobs and work hard to support their families while also paying for the resettlement and heathcare of Afghan evacuees, among whom is an unknowable number of jihad terrorists.

Kristin Nickerson, executive director of the Northern Virginia Emergency Response System, said: “Our hospitals are already almost at capacity. It’s not like they have tons of free beds available. We are still in the middle of a pandemic.” Oh yeah, that’s right, that pandemic for which Biden’s handlers are mandating vaccinations, except for migrants crossing the Southern border. Will the Afghan evacuees have to get the vaccine while they’re in hospitals for their free taxpayer-funded health care? The Post didn’t deign to say.

Biden: How Else Could We Get Out of Afghanistan Except by Abandoning Americans?

President Biden on Saturday again defended the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, arguing that the vast majority of Americans wanted to get out — and asking “How else could you get out?”

“But the flip of it is they didn’t like the way we got out, but it’s hard to explain to anybody, how else could you get out?” he asked.

You evacuate civilians before you withdraw the military. You don’t leave Americans behind and you don’t abandon valuable military gear.

You have an organized staggered departure from a secure air base that follows a planned schedule.

You don’t wake up right before the Taliban are marching into Kabul to urgently bring in thousands of troops for a shambolic evacuation in which the Taliban and Al Qaeda decide who gets to go to the airport.

That’s how else.

Since these are almost certainly the talking points we’ll see at the presidential debate, the GOP candidate had better be ready to call Biden on it.

Muslim Student at Washington University Removes 2,977 American Flags Commemorating 9/11 Victims

My latest at PJ Media:

Fadel Alkilani, a student at Washington University in St. Louis, is an enterprising young man who clearly has a bright future ahead. On Saturday, as people all over the world mourned the deaths of 2,977 people in jihad attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., Alkilani busied himself with pulling up 2,977 flags that had been placed on campus in honor of the victims and throwing them away. Among Leftists today, that’s the kind of behavior that leads to rapid career advancement– clearly, Fadel Alkilani is an up-and-coming young man.

The flags were part of the Young America’s Foundation’s “9/11: Never Forget Project”: “YAF activists at high schools and colleges across the country are keeping alive the memory of those lost to radical Islamist terrorists in the world-changing events of September 11, 2001.  The iconic displays made up of 2,977 American flags—one for each innocent life taken—bring schools, communities, and individuals together to pay tribute and continue our promise to ‘never forget.’”

YAF members at Washington University duly placed the 2,977 flags, only to have Alkilani, wearing a mask and his hair in a bun, come pluck the flags up and fill trash bags with them. In a video YAF posted on Twitter, Nathaniel Hope of Washington University’s hearty band of College Republicans confronts Alikani, who justified his action by claiming (falsely) that the flag display was a “violation of school rules.” He maintained that he, on the other hand, had not violated any university rules, telling Hope: “I did not violate any university or legal policy. Now go away.”

Later, Alkilani posted online a “Formal Statement on the Flag Relocation Incident,” in which he sanctimoniously employed that tried-and-true strategy of Leftists everywhere: He claimed victimhood. Instead of apologizing for his callous, thuggish, and fascist act, Alkilani wrote: “Currently, there is a massive harassment campaign propagated primarily by Washington University College Republicans, as well as the national Young American’s Foundation [YAF] regarding an incident that occurred at approximately 6 am on Saturday, September 11, 2021. There is a large amount of misinformation circulating, and I seek to explain both what occurred and why it happened.”

The “misinformation” that he proceeds to clear up is the claim that he was “‘stealing’ the flags. This is due to a WashU College Republicans member, taking a video of me collecting flags in plastic bags. However, I had no intention of removing the flags from the Mudd Field area, and my full protest did not have the chance to be actualized. My planned protest was to place the bags of flags on Mudd field, along with various statistics [including those below] explaining the human cost of 9/11 in the past 20 years. On the sides of the bags, some writing may be visible, but the full statement was not outlined at the time of the video. I did not deface, destroy, damage, nor steal any flags, nor did I interfere with any registered event time. I assert that I did not violate any University Code of Conduct policy, though the conduct process is undergoing. Additionally, I was verbally and physically harassed by numerous WashU students and WUPD officers, whom I plan to report through official channels.”

There is more. Read the rest here.

Black White Supremacist Slave Governors – Huh?

California’s recall vote is today.  The leading Republican candidate Larry Elder, who happens to be black, was recently called a white supremacist by one of the speakers at a Gavin Newsom rally.   Welcome to the fantasyland of the Left where men can give birth and black people can be white supremacists, even if they’re violently assaulted by radical white Leftists wearing insulting monkey masks as Elder recently was.  Hold certain attitudes and you are no longer black, the thinking goes.  This is obviously crazy.  People who hold these beliefs should seek professional help.

So should the people who believe slavery still exists in America today, like it was 1861 or something.  They’re now using the term ‘slavery’ very loosely to make their phony case, sweeping in all kinds of stuff that isn’t slavery, like blacks not doing as well economically as whites, on average.  Nice try, but that’s not slavery.

Real slavery really does exist in the world today, and that’s one of the points made by Candace Owens in a recent video for PragerU.  She is a conservative black and, therefore, a white supremacist, so says the delusional Left.   At least 700,000 people are enslaved in Africa today, Owens says, subjected to forced labor and human trafficking.    Slavery today is practiced almost exclusively in non-white countries, she goes on to say.

Her video makes other excellent points about slavery, taking down the persistent lie slavery is just a white thing.  The history of slavery goes back at least 5,000 years to Egypt where slaves built the pyramids.  It continued in ancient Greece and Rome, and was a big part of life in many parts of the world.   There is a long history of Muslims enslaving white people.  Blacks were sold into slavery in Africa by other black people.

If truth be told, whites were the first to end slavery, starting with England in 1833, followed by France, then the 13th Amendment in the United States in 1865.

If Larry Elder is elected today, will he be the first slave Governor of California, or the first black white supremacist Governor, or both?  That’s what happens when the Left spins too many narratives and trips over them.   I’m getting confused, but I’m sure the Left can straighten it all out for me.  They’re so clever with words.
