No Increase in Hurricane Frequency or Intensity

Hurricane Ian came ashore in Florida like a runaway freight train, reaching CAT4 strength, with 150 mph wind speeds as it made landfall.

Ian was devastating, but completely within the bounds of natural variability.

The media, however, can’t help themselves.  Marc Morano listed a bevy of shameless media exaggerations at Climate Depot.

The Financial Times: “hurricane frequency is on the rise,” NYT: “strong storms becoming more common,” Washington Post: “climate change is rapidly fueling super hurricanes,”

ABC: “here’s how climate change intensifies hurricanes.”   All of this is blatantly false.

Just take a look at the graphs above.  There is no significant trend in all hurricanes, or major hurricanes making landfall in the United States.  The data led the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to conclude “there is essentially no long-term trend in hurricane counts.”

Michael Shellenberger posted a devastating takedown at his Substack in which he goes so far as to charge that media producers and editors know full well that global warming has not caused hurricanes to increase, and are deliberately misleading the public by asserting that it is.

Ace forecasters Joe D’Aleo and Joe Bastardi have been publishing the cold hard facts which debunk the hurricane as climate myth.  Bastardi points out, for instance, that “there were SIX hurricanes that hit the Southern part of Florida, below a line from Tampa to Cape Canaveral on the Atlantic in the last 57 years. If you look at the prior 50 years, there were SIXTEEN strikes!”

Indeed, Bastardi predicted such a hurricane was coming even before it appeared, and that the Greens would use it to push their climate alarmist narrative.

Hurricane Ian caused genuine human pain, suffering and loss of life.

Exploiting this natural disaster to push a false climate narrative is shameful.

Would You Like Transgender Surgery with That?

Castration: Castration is any action, surgical, chemical, or otherwise, by which an individual loses use of the testicles: the male gonad. Surgical castration is bilateral orchiectomy, while chemical castration uses pharmaceutical drugs to deactivate the testes.


The crass commercialism of the transgender lobby is on full display this week with revelations three medical trade associations, including the AMA, are asking the Justice Department to “investigate and prosecute” anyone who threatens violence against doctors and hospitals for providing transgender drugs and surgery to minors.  These commercial associations claim doctors and hospitals are receiving harassing emails and threats of personal violence from a vast conspiracy of individuals and entities who object to mutilation of children for profit.  News to me.  But I have heard of firebombings and dozens of other actual attacks against pregnancy centers and pro-life groups that the Justice Department refuses to investigate.  Maybe when the vast anti-transgender conspiracy produces actual attacks on the same scale the Justice Department might get interested.

These trade groups can’t stand the fact truthful information contrary to their financial interest is being presented to the public.  “The attacks are rooted in an intentional campaign of disinformation, where a few high-profile users on social media share false and misleading information…,” the associations claim in their letter.   Translation: these merchants wish people like me would just shut up so they can make more money.

Some 300 highly profitable pediatric gender clinics have opened around the country in the last few years.  There’s gold in them thar gender confusions.  “Like most professionals, physicians and surgeons also seek to maximize their income,” a California psychologist said.  Demand is up, but you have to ask yourself what’s driving it.  The answer is social contagion and an aggressive political Left manipulating confused young people every step of the way.   Now the Left is putting the pedal to the metal.  Just a few weeks ago, it was hateful to suggest that hospitals were performing transgender surgery on minors.  But now, the New York Times proclaims hundreds of such surgeries are being performed and it’s glorious.

If it really is all that grand, why are sellers taking steps to hide it?   Vanderbilt University Medical Center took down the webpages for its adult and pediatric gender clinics after doctors at the hospital were caught on video talking about how lucrative breast and genital removals are, calling them a “big moneymaker”.  They also threatened hospital employees who wouldn’t get with the program.

That’s not all the transgender lobby is hiding.  A detransitioner recently said his doctors didn’t warn him transgender drugs and surgery could have serious side effects.  Now he’s living with numbness in his chest, genital atrophy, and tremors.  Why would doctors make full disclosure?  There’s money to be made by hiding any potential complication.

Proponents of all this also don’t want you to know some of the money ends up benefitting Democrat Party affinity groups and causes.  A group that promotes transgenderism for 2-year-olds received over $250 million in federal funds for, among other things, training 90,000 educators about such topics as the emergence of transgender identity in toddlers.  The group has spent almost $2 million on lobbying efforts since 2018, making contributions to such Democrat/Left-aligned groups as the NAACP, Human Rights Campaign, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.  So, you see, in the Left/Democrat world, one hand washes the other.  It’s one of their insidious machines.

But there’s no arguing with success.  Three weeks ago, I told you that the California legislature passed a bill to have the state take legal custody of minors who travel from other states seeking transgender drugs and surgery.  That bill is now law and takes effect January 1st.   None dare call it the new California Gold Rush.  Oklahoma, on the other hand, hit the transgender-industrial complex right in the pocketbook, passing a law prohibiting Oklahoma University Children’s Hospital from receiving federal COVID relief funds until it stops providing transgender services to minors.

It’s time to move in Oklahoma’s direction.  What we have here is a manipulative political Left ginning up false demand and a greedy transgender-industrial complex only too happy to meet it.  It’s time to protect children from these financial predators.

After the Republicans Take Back the U.S. House They’ll Impeach Biden—Here’s Our Prediction on What’s Next

The midterm elections are on November 8th, 2022.

We predict that the Republican Party will get a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. We expect the new Congress will be much more conservative and pro-Constitution than the current congress.

We predict the first major event, once the new Congress is sworn in, will be when Republicans begin impeachment proceedings against Biden under the 25th Amendment to the Constitution

Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution, known as the Presidential Succession Clause, states that the Vice President will assume the duties of the President in “case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office.”

Section 2 states:

Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Therefore, Kamala Harris will replace Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. after his impeachment. Then what? And how can Congress impact the candidate for VP?

Republicans Have A Say on Whose is Chosen to be the Vice President

We find it most interesting that the Republicans in Congress, if they exercise their duties under Amendment XXV, can impact who is made the vice president.

QUESTION: Why is this important?

ANSWER: The Constitution names the vice president of the United States as the president of the Senate. In addition to serving as presiding officer, the vice president has the sole power to break a tie vote in the Senate and formally presides over the receiving and counting of electoral ballots cast in presidential elections.

U.S. Constitution, Article II, section 1, clause 3 reads,

“…and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President…

NOTE: If a president and vice president become simultaneously unable to serve as president the speaker of the House ascends to fill the office.

That’s because Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution empowered Congress to set a line of succession to the presidency. “The Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President.”

It is possible that Republicans could impeach both Biden and Harris, which would mean that the Republican Speaker of the House, or some other officer, would become the president!

The Bottom Line

If Americans want free and fair elections then the U.S. Congress must insure that voter fraud, manipulation, ballot harvesting and illegal ballots are outlawed.

Given the events surrounding the 2020 presidential election this becomes more compelling.

When the Republicans take control of the U.S. Congress they must make, among other issues, election security one of their highest priorities.

Not to do so is a violation of their oaths of office.

This is why the 2022 midterm election is so important.

Vote and vote wisely. Our future of our nation depends on it.

AMENDMENT XXV

Passed by Congress July 6, 1965. Ratified February 10, 1967.

Note: Article II, section 1, of the Constitution was affected by the 25th amendment.

Section 1.

In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.

Section 2.

Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.

Section 3.

Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Section 4.

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

Vermont Girls’ HS Volleyball Team BARRED From Their OWN Locker Room After Opposing Transgender Student

The Transgender Student [With a Penis] Who Uses It and Who ‘Made Inappropriate Remarks’ To Them.


Look what the Democrats and their feminist running dogs are doing to our girls……

Members of a Vermont girls high school volleyball team have been banned from using their own locker room and now have to change in a single bathroom stall after they complained about a transgender teammate.

‘I feel like for stating my opinion — that I don’t want a biological man changing with me — that I should not have harassment charges or bullying charges. They should all be dropped,’ Allen said.

Daily Mail: Members of a Vermont girls high school volleyball team have been banned from using their own locker room and now have to change in a single bathroom stall after they complained about a transgender teammate.

Some teammates allege that the transgender player at Randolph Union High School made an ‘inappropriate remark’ to some of them while they were changing in the locker room.

They now want the school to relocate the transgender player, who hasn’t been named. No details of the alleged inappropriate remark have been shared.

But Vermont’s state law means that students can play sports and use the locker which correspond to the gender with which they identify.

Blake Allen, a player on the team, told WCAX how uncomfortable it makes her feel, saying ‘its a huge thing . . . everyone’s asking ‘why aren’t you allowed in the locker room?’

‘They want all the girls who feel uncomfortable to get changed in a single-stall bathroom, which would take over 30 minutes,’ she said. ‘Where, if one person got changed separately, it would take a minute, like no extra time.’

Allen said the issue isn’t with the transgender athlete playing on the team, but being in a locker room where the female students are at their most vulnerable.

‘There are biological boys that go into the girl’s bathroom, but never a locker room,’ Allen said. ‘There are biological boys that go into the girl’s bathroom, but never a locker room,’ Allen said.

Vermont laws stipulate that transgender students – such as those at Randolph High, pictured, can use whichever facilities align with their gender identity

She added: ‘My mom wants me to do this interview to try to make a change.’

‘I feel like for stating my opinion — that I don’t want a biological man changing with me — that I should not have harassment charges or bullying charges. They should all be dropped,’ Allen said.

School officials sent out another email informing parents they are looking into allegations that the volleyball girls harassed the transgender student.

Lisa Floyd, Randolph High School co-president, said that when policies are violated, disciplinary action consistent with the school’s rules will be applied, adding that students’ safety is the ‘district’s top priority.’

According to the policies of the Vermont Agency of Education, ‘the use of restrooms and locker rooms by transgender students require school to consider numerous facts,’ the agency said.

The agency states in their policy that ‘a transgender student should not be required to use a locker room or restroom that conflicts with the student’s gender identity.’

The school’s investigation is ongoing.

Transgender athletes and school students have become a hot button issue in recent years – particularly when they’ve transitioned from male-to-female.

Trans swimmer Lia Thomas sparked an outcry over unfairness after she smashed multiple college swimming records, prompting a crackdown on transgender women competing in swimming.

Dominion ‘QR Error Code’ Uncovered in 97% of Georgia Counties

Is there a clearer indictor of election malfeasance?

Bombshell Dominion ‘Error Code’ Uncovered in 97% of Georgia Counties

Open records requests reveal 64 of 66 Georgia counties have the same unsolved ‘Tennessee Error’ that caused seven scanners to miscount hundreds of ballots in Williamson County.

By: October 4, 2022:

In a podcast episode released last week Thursday, David Cross and Kevin Moncla of the Election Oversight Group reveal that open records request from 64 of 66 Georgia counties show the same security error “QR code signature mismatch” and warning message “Ballot format or id is unrecognizable” that caused seven scanners to miscount hundreds of ballots in Williamson County, Tennessee.

The “Tennessee Error” is an “anomaly” discovered on Dominion’s Image Cast Precinct (ICP) Tabulators (also referred to as “scanners”) that occurred during a Williamson County election held on October 26, 2021.

The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) defines an anomaly as “an irregular or inconsistent action or response from the voting system or the system component, which resulted in the system or component not functioning as intended or expected.”

In Williamson County, an election worker tallying votes on a post-it note realized that hundreds of ballots removed from a tabulator did not get counted.

Even though that tabulator never signaled that a problem occurred.

After further investigation, election officials realized that the anomaly caused 7 out of 18 tabulators to miscount ballots.

The State of Tennessee, the EAC, and the two accredited entities that test voting machines, Pro V&V and SLI Compliance, investigated the anomaly and were able to repeat the problem but were “not able to determine the root cause of the anomaly.”

The federal government and the state could not determine the cause of the problem, so they brought in Dominion Voting Systems to investigate why their tabulators were miscounting ballots.

On February 11, 2022, Dominion submitted a Root Cause Analysis (RCA) report to the EAC.

On March 31, 2022, the EAC released a report on the “Tennessee Error” entitled, “Dominion Voting Systems D-Suite 5.5-B”, which incredibly states “the direct cause of the anomaly was inconclusive” and “erroneous code is present in the EAC certified D-Suite 5.5-B and D-Suite 5.5-C systems.

In essence, the EAC and Dominion admit they do not know the cause of the problem, and there is no explanation or definition of the “erroneous code”, nor how it got there after the software was certified by the EAC.

The report continues, “analysis of audit log information revealed entries that coincided with the manifestation of the anomaly; a security error “QR code signature mismatch” and a warning message “Ballot format or id is unrecognizable” indicating a QR code misread occurred. When these events were logged, the ballot was rejected.”

In other words, as the Election Oversight Group explains:

“Investigators reviewed the system log (SLOG) files (it’s just a diary the scanner keeps of the election), and it showed multiple instances of an error called a “QR code signature mismatch” with a warning message of  “Ballot format or id is unrecognizable.” Testers noticed that the machines counted the votes properly until the error was triggered. After the error was triggered, the current ballot in the machine was not counted, and every ballot after it was not counted – until the machine was reset.”

The U.S. government report explains that Dominion’s tabulator marked all of these uncounted ballots as “provisional” even though tabulators typically do not scan provisional ballots, which are customarily hand-marked paper ballots that are placed in an envelope and addressed by election officials after the polls close.

Furthermore, according to Moncla, the uncounted ballot images “were in a provisional folder that was hidden from the tabulator’s count and the poll closing tape.”

“In other words, the tabulator didn’t reflect their existence anywhere.”

After the EAC report was released, Cross and Moncla asked EAC Director Jonathan Panek if the government found the anomaly in other states or counties.

The EAC Director who authored the “Tennessee Error” report replied, “no additional reports were received.”

Cross and Moncla then placed open records requests for SLOG files from all 159 Georgia counties, only to be “unlawfully blocked and significantly delayed” by Ryan Germany from the Secretary of State’s office.

The two volunteers behind the Election Oversight Group had to file a complaint with the Inspector General to force Mr. Germany to comply and have so far only received the SLOG files from 66 counties.

Incredibly, 64 of 66 or 97% of Georgia’s counties have the same “Tennessee Error” that Dominion Voting Systems and the U.S. government already investigated and admitted they do not know the cause.

For example, 107 instances of the security error “QR code signature mismatch” and the warning message “Ballot format or id is unrecognizable” show up in Chatham County’s SLOG files during the recent 2022 primary election.

In Gwinnett County, during the 2020 primary election, there are 84 instances of the same “Tennessee Error.”

Cross and Moncla say, “our work indicates the precinct scanners in Georgia have not counted ballots accurately since they were first installed” in 2020.

The Election Oversight Group, whose stated mission is “to protect & secure our elections,” have filed an “Official Notice and Demand for Emergency Review” with Georgia’s State Election Board that seeks intervention in the 2022 mid-term elections.

Moncla says, “The anomalies have not only been identified by locating the same errors in common with the Williamson incident but have also been realized by the discovery of ballots having been scanned but not included in the tabulator results.”

  • Dekalb County, 2022 Primaries- Hand-count revealed approximately 2800 ballots that had been scanned but not included in the tabulator results.
  • Gwinnett County, 2020 General Election- Approximately 1600 ballots were scanned but not included in the tabulator results.
  • Floyd County, 2020 General Election- Hand-count found approximately 2800 ballots that were scanned but not included.

Additionally, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, filed a lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems last month for a “breach of contract.”

The county alleges that their log files show “an external IP address” located in Quebec, Canada, and that an unauthorized “python script” had been installed after the certification date.

In May, CISA, an arm of the Department of Homeland Security, disclosed nine vulnerabilities that “an attacker could leverage to install malicious code” on the Dominion ImageCast X machines that are used in 16 states, including; Williamson County, Tennessee, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, and in every county in Georgia.

“Nearly as stunning as the EAC’s admission that the direct cause of the anomaly was inconclusive is the statement on the same page that they successfully fixed the anomaly,” Moncla emphasized.

IRAN: Schoolgirls remove hijabs in protests nationwide, ‘If we don’t unite, they will kill us one by one’

These schoolgirls are putting their lives on the line. Western feminists, meanwhile, remain mum for fear of appearing “Islamophobic.”

Iran schoolgirls remove hijabs in protests against government

by David Gritten, BBC, October 4, 2022:

Schoolgirls in Iran have been waving their headscarves in the air and chanting against clerical authorities, in an unprecedented show of support for the protests engulfing the country.

Videos verified by the BBC showed demonstrations inside schoolyards and on the streets of several cities.

They echoed the wider unrest sparked by the death last month of a woman who was detained for breaking the hijab law.

In Karaj, girls reportedly forced an education official out of their school.

Footage posted on social media on Monday showed them shouting “shame on you” and throwing what appear to be empty water bottles at the man until he retreats through a gate.

In another video from Karaj, which is just to the west of the capital Tehran, students are heard shouting: “If we don’t unite, they will kill us one by one.”

In the southern city of Shiraz on Monday, dozens of schoolgirls blocked traffic on a main road while waving their headscarves in the air and shouting “death to the dictator” – a reference to the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters.

Further protests by schoolgirls were reported on Tuesday in KarajTehran and the north-western cities of Saqez and Sanandaj….

NY Judge Rules Polygamy On Same Level as Couple Relationships

Come on, you didn’t really think there were any lines?

The whole point is to eliminate marriage and the family. The shoes will go on dropping until there’s nothing left. Nothing but the Left. Because that is the whole point of the exercise.

The case is W. 49th St., LLC v. O’Neill. It’s the usual mess of New York City’s absurd tenant protections with an alternative lifestyle twist.

The decision is yesterday’s West 49th St., LLC v. O’Neill, decided by New York Civil Court Judge Karen May Bacdayan. Scott Anderson and Markyus O’Neill lived together in an apartment; Anderson was on the lease, and O’Neill was not. After Anderson died, O’Neill would have had the right to renew the lease if he were “a non-traditional family member,” but Anderson was married to Robert Romano. The apartment building company therefore argued that O’Neill was just a roommate, but the court concluded that there needed to be a hearing about whether Anderson, Romano, and O’Neill were actually in a polyamorous relationship:

As was repeatedly pointed out, there’s no reason to draw the line at two. If all that matters is love and everything else is a detail, why cavil at a number? Any number. It’s three now, but why not three thousand? Love is love, you know.

“In sum, the problem with Braschi and Obergefell is that they recognize only two-person relationships. Those decisions, while revolutionary, still adhered to the majoritarian, societal view that only two people can have a family-like relationship; that only people who are “committed” in a way defined by certain traditional factors qualify for protection from “one of the harshest decrees known to the law—eviction from one’s home.”

Those decisions, however, open the door for consideration of other relational constructs; and, perhaps, the time has arrived. As Justice John Roberts foretold in his Obergefell dissent:

“Although the majority randomly inserts the adjective ‘two’ in various places, it offers no reason at all why the two-person element of the core definition of marriage may be preserved while the man-woman element may not.

Since then we’ve eliminated the existence of the sexes. All that’s left is the detail of the number.

New York City’s eviction court – the venue of a landmark same-sex relationship decision long before Obergefell v Hodges – is now the source of a legal opinion that comes down clearly on the side of polyamorous unions.

The decision came in the case of West 49th St., LLC v. O’Neill, decided by New York Civil Court Judge Karen May Bacdayan, concluded that polyamorous relationships are entitled to the same sort of legal protection given to two-person relationships.

In June [2020], Somerville, Massachusetts, passed an ordinance allowing groups of three or more people who ‘consider themselves to be a family’ to be recognized as domestic partners. The neighboring town of Cambridge followed suit, passing a broader ordinance recognizing multi-partner relationships. The law has proceeded even more rapidly in recognizing that it is possible for a child to have more than two legal parents.”

“Why then,” posited the judge, “except for the very real possibility of implicit majoritarian animus, is the limitation of two persons inserted into the definition of a family-like relationship for the purposes of receiving the same protections from eviction accorded to legally formalized or blood relationships? Is ‘two’ a ‘code word’ for monogamy? Why does a person have to be committed to one other person in only certain prescribed ways in order to enjoy stability in housing after the departure of a loved one?”

What’s the counterargument? There isn’t one. If nothing is sacred, why should a number be?

Trump Turns To Supreme Court On Mar-A-Lago Raid

Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers requested the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court’s ruling regarding the Mar-a-Lago raid, saying Tuesday that not allowing the Special Master to review all the seized documents “erodes public confidence in our system of justice.”

On Sept. 21, the 11th Circuit allowed the Department of Justice (DOJ) to keep looking at “classified” documents the FBI seized from Trump’s Florida residence in August, after the DOJ appealed their case.

Judge Aileen Cannon had previously put a pause on the DOJ’s review while a neutral Special Master was being appointed to review all documents, but after the appeals court’s ruling, the third party watchdog can only review materials not bearing classification markings.

The DOJ now has access to roughly 100 documents bearing classification markings, which Trump’s lawyers have claimed were declassified by the former president.

Trump’s request to the Supreme Court was specifically addressed to Justice Clarence Thomas, and asks for the Special Master to have access to the “classified” materials again, claiming that the 11th Circuit “lacked jurisdiction” to stay Cannon’s order.

“This unwarranted stay should be vacated as it impairs substantially the ongoing, time-sensitive work of the Special Master. Moreover, any limit on the comprehensive and transparent review of materials seized in the extraordinary raid of a President’s home erodes public confidence in our system of justice,” the application to the Supreme Court read.

The DOJ has claimed it needs to review the “classified” materials due to their potential of being national security risks. The 11th Circuit mentioned this concern in their ruling, stating, “It is self-evident that the public has a strong interest in ensuring that the storage of the classified records did not result in ‘exceptionally grave damage to the national security.’”

In the request to the Supreme Court, Trump’s lawyers state that the Special Master looking over all documents before the Biden administration’s DOJ has access is an “intermediary procedural step to conduct an orderly, transparent, and fair review of the seized materials.”

Oklahoma Secretary of Education Ryan Walters Calls for ‘Anarchist’ Tyler Wrynn’s ‘Teaching Certificate’ to be Revoked as a Result of Project Veritas’ Video

Below is the full statement from Oklahoma Secretary of Education, Ryan Walters, regarding the Project Veritas video exposing “woke” teacher Tyler Wrynn:

We have many great teachers in Oklahoma. Tyler Wrynn is not one of them. Seeing this new video, where Tyler talks about indoctrinating kids, violating HB1775, being an anarchist, and trying to undermine our entire education system — that is not going to be accepted here in the state of Oklahoma. We have a teacher that a year ago said, “F— Parents.” This is unacceptable in our schools. Again, he is masquerading as a teacher when in reality he’s a liberal activist trying to indoctrinate our kids. Deborah Gist [Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent] has allowed this into our school[s] knowing his background, knowing what he said publicly. Superintendent Hofmeister [State Superintendent of Public Instruction] has pushed and allowed this type of indoctrination in our schools, and we cannot allow this any further. I am asking the State Board of Education to revoke his [Tyler Wrynn’s] teaching certificate. He has violated the law and said openly that he wants to indoctrinate our kids rather than provide them the academic background that they need to be successful in life. In Oklahoma, we will emphasize academics. We will ensure that our students have the ability to be successful, and we will not tolerate indoctrination and political activism in our classroom. This isn’t [a] left or right issue. It’s about protecting our kids and ensuring that they have an education that allows them to be successful without political indoctrination.

Reid Suggests DeSantis’ Second Amendment Warning to Looters is ‘Racist’

After Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s race-mongering hate show The ReidOut, during which racist host Joy Reid suggested that a warning to potential looters by FL Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) echoed the sentiment of racists during the segregation era, social media users lashed out at her “racist” and “pro-looting” message.

DeSantis had warned would-be looters that they would be risking their lives by trying to enter the homes of Hurricane Ian victims, saying, “We’re a Second Amendment state.” Reid subsequently likened DeSantis to segregationist Miami Police Chief Walter E. Headley, who, in 1967, stated, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

“Didn’t take DeSantis long to return to form,” Reid wrote.

Many took to social media to vent outrage.

“What is racist about warning people not to take things that don’t belong to them?” asked Jeremy Redfern, deputy press secretary for the governor. “Be specific.”

“Is Joy saying only Blacks loot?” asked author and Security Studies Group President Jim Hanson. “Seems a bit racist.”

“Let’s try to parse this out. Is this a claim that, just b/c some racist jackass agreed with the rest of us that ‘looters beware, we have a legal right to defend our home & property’ 55 yrs ago, that now the principle itself is racist?” asked podcast host Jeff Blehar. “Or is she just unintelligent? Help me here.”

“Describing a threat to looters by politicians or business-people as ‘racist’ is a great example of both the Univariate Fallacy and the subtle bias of woke people,” wrote author and political science professor Wilfred Reilly.

“Did you just assume that (a) all looters are Black, and (b) race is WHY people would kill them?” he added.

“Now wait a minute, @GovRonDeSantis didn’t say anything about race so Joy Reid must think all looters are Black,” wrote former congressional candidate Robby Starbuck.

“When did Ron DeSantis say or imply anything about race? Looters of any demographic, including white straight non-Muslim ones, deserve to get what’s coming to them,” one Twitter use wrote.

“Joy Reid, apparently pro-looting!” wrote another.

“I guess Joy Reid assumes all homeowners are white and the looters are black,” wrote another user. “How does MSNBC allow this clown to have airtime?”

Reid Likens Ron DeSantis to George Wallace

On April 22, 2021, Reid likened Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis to the late segregationist Governor George Wallace (who was a Democrat), for signing a new Florida law that: (a) stiffened the penalties for crimes committed during a riot or violent protest; (b) permitted authorities to detain arrested protesters until a first court appearance; (c) established new felony designations for organizing or participating in a violent protests; and (d) made it a second-degree felony to vandalize a memorial, plaque, flag, painting, structure, or any other object that commemorates historical people or events. Among Reid’s remarks were the following:

  • “This is directed at Black Lives Matter. It feels so George Wallace that I’m shocked that George Wallace didn’t actually think of it back when he was governor of Alabama.”
  • “Ron DeSantis appears to really want to reenact the entire George Wallace history. I guess he wants to be the modern-day George Wallace because he is enacting a slew of laws that essentially try to make it illegal to protest in the state of Florida, illegal to touch their precious Confederate statues from the losing side of the Civil War, right? But then also — but you also can’t vote. This is Jim Crow in your state.”

True the Vote Issues Statement Regarding the Arrest of Konnech CEO Eugene Yu

HOUSTON, TX/PRNewswire/ — True the Vote is honored to have played a small role in what must have been a wide ranging and complex investigation. The organization is profoundly grateful to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office for their thorough work and rapid action in this matter.

True the Vote was sued last month by Konnech to try to silence our organization, including obtaining an ex-parte TRO, conducted in secret so that True the Vote had no opportunity to contest it. This TRO limited True the Vote’s ability to speak on the litigation. Today Konnech CEO Eugene Yu was arrested based on alleged evidence of the very activities he and his organization attempted to suppress. Konnech was assisted by many reporters who unblinkingly accepted their now discredited claims as fact, and simply repeated them.

According to True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht, “Election integrity should not be a partisan issue, nor should media try to suppress all conversation about it in a way that benefits one party. We will continue to report evidence of threats to our election process and work with law enforcement to ensure our elections are a secure space for all American voters.”

‘I am Giorgia, I am a woman, I am a mother, I am Italian, I am a Christian!’ Italy’s unashamedly, defiantly pro-family new leader

Who on earth possesses the unmitigated insolence to publicly assert a Christian, Italian and family identity?


In the wee hours of Monday, September 26, thousands of Italian patriots rallied in Rome. The star attraction was a diminutive down-to-earth family-friendly fireball who had just made history with a stunning election victory. She hurled a bolt of verbal lightning that electrified Europe and made headlines around the world:

Why is the family an enemy?… Because it is our identity… so they attack national identity, they attack religious identity, they attack gender identity, they attack family identity. I can’t define myself as Italian, Christian, woman, mother. No. I must be citizen x, gender x, parent 1, parent 2. I must be a number. Because when I am only a number, when I no longer have an identity or roots, then I will be the perfect slave at the mercy of financial speculators. The perfect consumer.

Talk about speaking truth to power! That’s boldly calling out the noxious globalist ideology driving Western decline! But there’s more:

We want to defend the value of the human being. Every single human being, because each of us has a unique genetic code that is unrepeatable. And like it or not, that is sacred. We will defend it. We will defend God, country and family… Because we will never be slaves and simple consumers at the mercy of financial speculators.

Wow. Western Christendom’s wake-up call!

Who on earth possesses the unmitigated insolence to publicly assert a Christian, Italian and family identity? Don’t we know that mere mortals are meant to be melded into a mammoth monetized multicultural mélange? Who dares resist?

Her name is Giorgia Meloni, a petite (5’4”) proudly Italian lady who unabashedly professes allegiance to “God, country and family.” Forty years ago that would be expected of anyone in public life. Today it is considered “controversial” by ruling elites.

Ms. Meloni heads Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy), the leading party in a family-friendly coalition that vaulted to victory in Italy’s elections. She’s on track to be the next Prime Minister.

How could somebody like that win a national election in Europe? One reason is that so many folks have had it with globalist economics and its relentless politically correct, anti-family, anti-Christian, anti-White, uber-woke propaganda.

Far out! No, “far right” says PC media. The New York Times: “Her proposals, characterized by protectionism, tough-on-crime measures and protecting the traditional family, have a continuity with the post-Fascist parties…” So protectionism, being tough on crime and protecting the traditional family are Fascist? To paraphrase Patrick Henry when he was accused of treason, “If this be Fascist, make the most of it.”

Whatever the New York Times calls it, any disagreement with the woke globalist narrative means the PC smear bund gins up the bile, screaming “racist,” “bigot,” “xenophobe,” “Fascist,” “Nazi,” whatever. That is meant to frighten us. It doesn’t work anymore. Fuhgeddaboudit.

Back to Italy, where a pro-family politician is in the saddle. Yours truly loves the place. But Italian heritage is fading as Italians slowly disappear. No matter how much they may believe in God, country, and family, they need to start practicing it. The loss of faith, globalist debt financing, materialism, consumerism, and all-or-nothing careerism have taken a grim toll. Italy’s population is projected to shrink 50 percent by century’s end.

Don’t believe it? According to Italy’s Ministry of Education, University and Research:

This year in Italy, 121,000 fewer students will enter school than last year. …Last year… 196 schools were closed. …Every year Italy loses 1-2% of its pupils. …During the last eight years, according to data published by the ministry, 1,301 schools have shut…

Italy’s future?

This crisis is not a projection, it is happening right now. By 2050, 60% of Italians will have no brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles or aunts. The Italian family, with the father who pours the wine and the mother who serves the pasta to a table of grandparents, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, will be gone, as extinct as dinosaurs.

Those who profess pride in their Italian heritage should look in the mirror. They are abandoning that heritage by not replacing themselves. Italy had just under 400,000 births last year, the fewest since Italian unification in 1861.

EU number-crunchers say that if current trends continue, by 2080, 50 percent of those living in Italy will be of African or Asian descent.

Ms. Meloni is aware of this:

I am Giorgia, I am a woman, I am a mother, I am Italian, I am Christian, you won’t take it from me. I’m ashamed… I’m ashamed of a state that doesn’t do anything for families, I’m ashamed of a state in which everyone talks about free day care but nobody makes them. Fratelli d’Italia submitted the proposal. Rejected.

A video remix of Giorgia Meloni’s fiery ‘I am Giorgia’ speech

Such a government undeniably deserves shame, and Ms Meloni’s stunning victory is bringing it on.

Then less than 48 hours after her victory speech, the evil empire struck back. The headline in the National Review was: “YouTube Removes Incoming Italian Prime Minister Meloni’s Passionate Speech on Family Breakdown”. Apparently it had violated YouTube’s community guidelines.

Ms. Meloni’s 2019 speech to the World Congress of Families had gone viral. Here is some of what she said now censored by Google’s YouTube:

They said it’s scandalous for people to defend the natural family founded on marriage, to want to increase the birth rate, to want to place the correct value on human life, to support freedom in education, and to say no to gender ideology.

[We fight for the] right of a woman to be a mother and not have to give up working as a result. The right to be a mother, choose not to work, and not starve to death as a result. The right of a woman forced to have an abortion because she has no alternatives.

Ms Meloni also voiced opposition to surrogacy and child gender transition hormone therapy. But what she said during her campaign really set the woke set ablaze:

Yes to natural families, no to the LGBT lobby, yes to sexual identity, no to gender ideology, yes to the culture of life, no to the abyss of death, no to the violence of Islam, yes to safer borders, no to mass immigration, yes to work for our people.

Far-right or family-friendly?

How did we get to where advocating for national identity and family values incurs the wrath of the establishment?

Let’s hope that Giorgia Meloni’s new government delivers. It will be a challenge, as Italy is a fiscal basket case. But if the state doesn’t champion families, what good is it?

Fear not, Italians. Our flesh and blood humanity is not valued by economic utility. Embrace tradition. Put family first. Turning the tide will be a very tall order. But if anyone can get it started, Giorgia Meloni can.

From her victory speech:

Chesterton wrote, more than a century ago… “Fires will be kindled to testify that two and two makes four. Swords will be drawn to prove that leaves are green in summer.” That time has arrived…

Indeed it has.

Viva Italia!
