National Geographic Magazine Goes Woke And Falls For The Climate Change Myth

The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” John F. Kennedy


It appears that National Geographic has fallen for another climate change hoax. In a May 25th, 2022 National Geographic article titled “Climate change is eroding a precious resource: sleep” Alejandra Borunda reported,

Now a new study links sleep loss—and by extension, all the problems that come with it—with climate change. Researchers from the University of Copenhagen found that ever-warmer nighttime temperatures, nudged higher by climate change, push bedtimes later and wake times earlier, costing us precious nighttime rest.

Sleepers tracked in the study, published last week in the journal One Earth, lost rest even in places where temperatures weren’t blazingly high, and had trouble adapting to even mildly challenging sleep temperatures. And sleep costs, the researchers warn, will rise as temperatures do, potentially costing sleepers—that is, all of us—an extra 13 to 15 days of poor sleep each year by the end of the century.

Let me get this straight, global warming can cause you to lose sleep?

The revised and expanded third edition of Hot Talk, Cold Science by distinguished astrophysicist Dr. S. Fred Singer’s lucid, yet hard, scientific look at climate change.

Singer explores the inaccuracies in historical climate data, the limitations on and failures of climate models, solar variability along with the effects of clouds, ocean currents, and sea levels on global climate, plus factors that could mitigate any human impact on world climate.

Singer’s masterful analysis decisively shows that the pessimistic, and often alarming, global warming scenarios depicted in the media have no scientific basis. In fact, he finds that many aspects of increased CO2 levels as well as any modest warming, such as a longer growing season for food and a reduced need to use fossil fuels for heating, would have a highly positive impact on the human race. Further, Singer notes how many proposed “solutions” to the global warming “crisis” (like “carbon” taxes) would have severe consequences for economically disadvantaged groups and nations.

Who’s Behind One Earth?

To understand one must look at who founded One Earth. Both the founder President Justin Winters and co-founder and Deputy Director Karl Burkart of One Earth were the Executive Director  and Director of Media, Science & Technology at the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation respectively. In July 2019 the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), Emerson Collective, and Global Wildlife Conservation merged. They’re now know as Earth Alliance. According to their website,

Earth Alliance, a new organization to help address the urgent threats to our planet’s life support systems – born out of the shared passion of its founding co-chairs: environmental activist and Academy Award®-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, businesswoman and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, and investor and philanthropist Brian Sheth.

Launched in response to a growing climate crisis and staggering loss of biodiversity threatening the stability of life on Earth, the Alliance marks a shared commitment to addressing these intertwined threats.

These are radical environmentalists with the goal to further the myth of global cooling, global warming and climate change. They are in bed with the current administration.

CNN jumped on board with this sleep loss stating,

People around the world are likely to lose 50 to 58 hours of sleep a year by 2099 due to the climate crises, a new study revealed.

[ … ]

Adults should get seven to nine hours of sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The likelihood of getting less than seven hours of sleep increased by 3.5% if minimum outside nighttime temperatures exceeded 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius) compared with the baseline temperature of 41 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit (5 to 10 degrees Celsius), the study found.

Saava.com provides this chart titled Sleep recommendations by age:

Age Group Age Range Recommended Amount of Sleep
Newborns 0-3 months old 14-17 hours of sleep
Infants 4-11 months old 12-15 hours of sleep
Toddlers 1-2 years old 11-14 hours of sleep
Pre-schoolers 3-5 years old 10-13 hours of sleep
School-aged kids 6-13 years old 9-11 hours of sleep
Teenagers 14-17 years old 8-10 hours of sleep
Young adults 18-25 years old 7-9 hours of sleep
Adults 26-64 years old 7-9 hours of sleep
Older adults 65+ years old 7-8 hours of sleep

The Bottom Line

The older you get the less sleep you need. Get it? Got it? Good.

The climate has nothing to do with it.

So who does this really impact, if anyone at all? Those who don’t have central air-conditioning. So by 2099 approximately 3.5% of you could get less sleep by sleeping in temperatures over 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Hmmmmm. How about your turn your thermostats down!

Don’t have central air-conditioning? Then you need to get it or god forbid 3.5% of you’ll will lose some sleep.

Do you see how insane this is? It’s a myth that can’t be proven until 2099.

As alarmists clamor to impose draconian government restrictions on entire populations in order to combat “climate change,” Dr. S. Fred Singer in Hot Talk, Cold Science reveals some startling, stubborn contradictory facts, including:

  • CO2 has not caused temperatures or sea levels to rise beyond historical rates.
  • Severe storms have not increased in frequency or intensity since 1970—neither have heat waves nor droughts.
  • Global change is not harming coral reefs.
  • Any increases in CO2 concentrations across huge time spans (there have been a few) haven’t preceded rising global temperatures; they’ve followed them by about six to eight hundred years—just the opposite of alarmist claims.
  • Alarmist climate scientists have hidden their raw temperature data and deleted emails—then undermined the peer-review system to squelch debate.

An thus ends this lesson on the many myths of climate change. Get to bed and get some sleep.

The Kremlin’s Ruthless WWIII vs. American Marxism

To the memory of our heroes fighting Socialism/Communism globally.


The significance and goal of Information, I have learned from the KGB Chairman Yuri Andropov in the 1960th Russia. “The information is the most precious commodity in politics” he said. Then in the 1960th I didn’t pay attention to that definition, the importance of information came to my mind in America, when I realized that our Intelligence and the FBI had no clue about the Russian colossal Intelligence Apparatus. They had no idea about the strategy, tactics, methods, and dirty tricks of the sick minds. The absence of that knowledge has allowed Apparatus to inflict a huge damage to us with impunity. It vividly and intensely came up in the recent creation of Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board—a typical Soviet trick—the government investigates its own honesty by misinforming us…

From Stalin to Putin and Biden’s America

I have written a lot of pages about disinformation, it is the youngest sister of Stalinist Political Correctness. They have the same purpose, agenda and the methods of management. Stalinist PC was aimed at hiding and masking the Truth and replacing it with Stalinist Dogma of Socialism. Here is my definition of PC. “…Political Correctness is a Stalinist policy, driven by the political agenda, a skillfully crafted design of a quintessential system of lies, fraud, and a long-term strategy of war against Western civilization to create of One World Socialist Government under Kremlin’s rule.”  To hide or musk the Truth is the common agenda of Stalinist PC and Disinformation in America. Read my column Political Correctness and the Socialist Revolution in America October 31, 2019

Elon Musk is right: Truth is the first casualty in politics. Yes, Truth has become the first casualty a hundred years ago with establishment of Soviet Socialism by Joseph Stalin. I am talking about Stalinist Socialism, which I called Soviet Fascism. History is the Mother of all sciences and talking about Marxism in America, you at list should know Marxist Theory. I know it and want you to read the general postulates of the Theory, where Marx identified in detail the tasks, agendas, and ways to achieve them two hundred years ago as follows:

  • First, developing the tasks and agenda—“overthrowing the capitalist economic system and establishing socialism” as a basis for the creation of a classless communist society in the future.
  • Second, the strategy to fulfill the tasks and agenda—through world revolution.
  • Third, the world revolution would occur under the leadership of the proletariat. “Proletariats of the world unite!” was their slogan.
  • Fourth, Marxist theory was to be limited to industrially developed European countries.

First, the Theory identifies and recognized the plan and agenda—“overthrowing the capitalist economic system and establishing socialism.” Moreover, the Theory repeated its requirement in the fours postulate: Pay attention to Marx’s fourth postulate. It is perhaps the only logical and economically sustainable position, that is, “Marxist theory can be applied only to industrially developed European countries.” Russia was an agricultural country and therefore had to be categorically excluded from the possibility of “overthrowing the capitalist economic system and establishing socialism” Ironically, it has happened despite Marx’s first and fourth postulates: the first Socialist Revolution took place in Russia in October 1917. On the contrary to Marx by using and perverting Marxist rhetoric to further his ends, Joseph Stalin created his own ideology and established a criminal syndicate, a totalitarian machine called Soviet Socialism.

The leader of the Russian Socialist Revolution, Vladimir Lenin has known Marx’s postulates and stated that Russia as an agricultural country can’t proceed the Marxist way: he stated that “we will go the other way.” He died in 1924 and Joseph Stalin usurped an unlimited power in Russia. The building of Stalinist Soviet Socialism began with ruthless methods against the opposition of White Army in the 1920th. The same methods and tactics had been applied against the entire population. You can read about the horror committed by Stalinist Law Enforcement and Intelligence in my book: What is Happening to America? The Hidden Truth of Global Destruction, updated and republished in 2022.

As a person who had studied Marxism-Leninism and lived half of my life under Soviet Socialism, I am writing about that Stalinist Socialism for the last thirty years. As a former Soviet attorney, I know how it had been constructed and implemented by Stalinist brutal forces in the 1930th throughout the 11 time zones of the USSR. In 1960th those who had survived the notorious viciousness of Stalinist Intelligence and escaped the slaughter, came to my office with their horrific stories. Those were the same stories that have changed George Orwell’s mindset in politics. The following decades have not changed a lot in Russia; they brought to power Stalin’s devoted disciple Vladimir Putin and his notorious KGB mafia/Army. Read my previous column about George Orwell and his masterpieces books that had been a result of the information from Stalinist Soviet Socialism…

Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ put on hold for now and the Disinformation Czar resigned. Yet, we have multiple crises at home and abroad. Don’t be surprised, they all have derived from the same cause and the same source—Russia. America witnessed the Socialist Revolution orchestrated by Putin’s KGB Mafia/Army and nobody understands and reacts accordingly to stop it today. Where is the FBI, where are all 17 Intelligence agencies? The answer to the questions is simple: Neither of them knows Russia, her Intel, which has been spreading the ideology of Soviet Socialism for the last hundred years. As a former Soviet defense attorney, I had known it would come to America and I warned you in my writings for the last thirty years…

The Pentagon now declassified a report researching UFOs for sixty years and had no answer to the main query: whether it is a physical object or not. I think, this is a result of the Intel’s incompetence, they don’t know enemy and called them the Radical Left. Very wrong! I have been writing about Socialist Charlatans for the last twenty years and the proper name of the Radical Left is Socialist Charlatans. Had our Intel know Russia’s dirty tricks, it would grasp the essence of the term and find the answer for many other Russia’s crimes in America. For example, shooting by the mentally ill minors and adults during the last twenty years. As a result of that incompetence the violence rages across America. I have been writing in detail about criminality committed by Russia and its Intelligence. I have used the term KGB Mafia/Army, it signifies the entire Russian Intel and its dirty tricks. That knowledge is a must for politicians, all Americans, and definitely for the FBI members and Intelligence community…

Just count numerous wars America has experienced during the last several decades: culture war, war on drugs, war on human trafficking, war on Christianity, war on the police, war on oil and gas industries, abortion’s war, war on “White Supremacy,” war on parents, war on the Supreme Court, and war on babies. Those wars are the numerous fronts of the same Kremlin’s Ruthless WWIII waged by different methods including disinformation. We have many types of Socialist Charlatans operating from different locations, deliberately misleading us and there thousands if not millions of them in our midst. BLM proudly admitted “we are trained Marxists.” This is a clear lie to divert your attention from the real culprits—the KGB Mafia/Army, follow the money. Some Socialist Charlatans operate from our Congress, like the “Squad,” some from the current administration like Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete or Joe Biden. To win they might even cancel the upcoming midterm election.

I have followed Joe Biden and his actions since 2013-2014, when Obama assigned him as a point man for Ukraine. My several columns have been describing his activities in Ukraine. Biden was on the side of old corrupt Ukraine and he collaborated with Vladimir Putin to suffocate the young Ukrainian democracy. Just read his own declaration on “quid-pro-quo” with $1 Billion of American money to fire the prosecutor investigating Hunter. Then, twelve years ago, he was in his right mind and exposed himself by helping Putin. Biden is now have no capacity to run the country. In my opinion, his old staff consisting of Obama’s holdover and the bad actors from the KGB is running America. Just watch how the staff walked back Biden’s remark on Taiwan. I don’t trust any of them. They are spending our money to bankrupt us. I think that our economic decline has been deliberately planned since the first day of Biden’s team by sabotaging the supply chain—a wonder of Capitalism.

The issue of Biden’s staff concerns me greatly. This is the same staff that served him at the time of his collaboration with Putin in Ukraine. Biden’s economic policy has inextricably connected to his foreign policy: the war in Ukraine has a global implication. Therefore, the motivation of Biden’s team must be checked and analyzed, we are dealing with Socialists/Communists waging WWIII against Capitalism. I suspect that the policy for Ukraine had been shaped according to my column on February 28, 2022. Biden’s staff is monitoring my computer and has changed Biden’s State of The Union Speech on the next day, March 1, 2022. After reading my column, they decided to use the Ukraine war to cover-up their crime–the Dems leadership’s collaboration with Russian Intelligence. Read my column Face to Face with Soviet Fascism, April 4, 2022.

Stalinist Postulate–The Arms of Democrat’s Leadership

Stalinist main postulate was known to all Soviet people, it sounds very simple: “never admit crime committed, instead accuse the opponent of that exact crime.”   That precise action has been done by the Democrat Party to Republicans in America. It started with the KGB Mafia/Army production of the Trump/Dossier, described by me as a Falshivka, a fraud in 2017. The Democrats who don’t like America First, immediately joined the war against Republican/Trump accusing him of Russian collusion. The radical hoax has become a reality, Trump was a convenient target. I had known the dynamics of the story then in 2017, but you didn’t know that the Dems had followed Stalinist postulate-order, because they had had the monumental Russian collusion by themselves. Bill Barr didn’t know it either. That is why the Durham investigation was a necessity. The shocking news is available today and the Clintons are behind both Hoax against Republicans.

The Durham probe reveals valuable information: a collusion going on from the Clinton campaign to the Media. Hillary personally approved dissemination of the Trump/Russia Hoax. The former campaign manager Roby Mooch testified to that. The Russian “Operation Disinformation” was brought by the Dems to America. Now it is very evident that Clinton’s campaign scandal is the media scandal like Hunter-lab-top story—a deliberate, deceptive and calculated criminal disinformation against the Republicans and American Constitutional republic. I recognized it as the same disinformation like in Soviet Russia aimed at the opposition. We saw Truman’s Party transformation to Socialist Party and implementation of Socialism in America—from Bill Clinton and Obama to Biden’s America. James Sullivan is proof of that—Biden’s team continues implementation of Socialism in America today. The court should read My Conversation with Rush Limbaugh, February 20, 2021

If you ask what force has developed this transformation, you should read my preceding column about Socialist Charlatans built by the KGB Mafia/Army in America, like it has been done in all Socialist countries of the “Axis of Evil,” changing policy through bureaucracy. To understand Stalinist Soviet Socialism and its leadership, just compare Biden’s family in America to Kim Jong-un’s family in the North Korea. To control and power over the population, Socialist dictator Kim Jong-un keeps the people in misery. Analyze the policy and actions of Joe Biden since the first day of his presidency and you will be surprised learning the same direction in Biden’s America to make Americans poorer and the same covering-up of the crime had committed by his family—the patterns of Stalinist Socialism.

The list of major achievements of the KGB Mafia/Army in America I offered in my preceding column. You can now learn about Soviet Socialism in America and its epic effect on all aspects of our lives. Russian Intelligence has been infiltrating our midst and the world for the last hundred years implementing Soviet Socialism. The forces of the “Axis of Evil” are firmly involved in the Kremlin’s WWIII. Remember this: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we lose our freedoms it will be because we have destroyed ourselves from within.” Abraham Lincoln. I admit the quotation may have other words, but the meaning is obvious—threat to be destroyed from within. We have that exact environment and continuation of the school shooting in May 2022 America today…

It is a torture to see devastating parents in the school and hear their desperate voices. It is even worse to see the pictures of alive and smiling children, killed in the horrific shooting in the TX elementary school. The entire country is shaken to its core and people ask: What’s happening to our country? I know our country experiences social and cultural breakdown. There will be a thorough investigation of the crime, but only the people who have read my books or columns will be able to answer all questions. I have been writing about the school shooting since the shooting in Columbine in 1999. The shooting by mentally ill people has never stopped; hundreds innocent children and adults have been killed. We can only guess the mental state of the killer. Why does it happen in Texas? Because we are at war!  All of that could’ve been prevented by reading about the Russian Intelligence Apparatus reported by me.

That didn’t happen, because after the publication of my first book, the FBI submitted my name to the FISA Court to make me a “foreign agent” in 2002–my writings have been banned… There is no coincidence that today a Federal Court investigates the Trump/Russia probe and Clinton’s role in it for decades. All my books were dedicated to that exact subject by reporting the criminal activities of the KGB Mafia/Army working in concert with the Dems leadership and converting the Party to Socialist Party. Not knowing that information, we are not ready to fight the Kremlin’s WWIII or January 6 Commission—both are inextricably connected. Read my column: The Stalinist’s Now Run America January 1, 2022

My fellow Americans!

The Democrat Party doesn’t like America the Beautiful and a unique and brilliant design of our political system left to us by our Founding Fathers. All three branches of our government are now run by the Democrats and we are witnessing the constant ‘transition’ of our political system and the battles against Republicans. I haven’t changed my mind, but I leave to you the final Judgement on the ideology discussed in my writings. Whether it is Socialist Revolution the Democrats manufactured for decades in America? Or, is it a merger of the government bureaucracy with big tech into a Fascist Regime in America?

Be ready for the 2022 “summer in rage.” There will be more violent and brutal riots than the “summer in love” of 2020. The forces exercising the riots are the same—Socialist Charlatans in cahoots with the KGB Mafia/Army. Watch the theatrical performances of the Dems like Pelosi, Schumer, Beto, Joe, Liz and Debby lying arrogantly, agitating the mob… Remember also, Afghanistan now is the member of the “Axis of Evil” under the Russian umbrella and Putin’s war in Ukraine can create a global food shortage for years… We are facing a monumental threat to our republic…

My friends! It is now or never! Save America the Beautiful!

Freedom’s torch is yours!

Biden Admin: K-12 Schools Must Put Boys In Girls’ Bathrooms To Get Federal Lunch Money

If only Democrats worked as hard as hardening school security and providing armed police than they do endangering our girls…..

Biden Admin: K-12 Schools Must Put Boys In Girls’ Bathrooms To Get Federal Lunch Money

By: Joy Pullman, The Federalist, May 26, 2022:

K-12 schools must allow boys into girls’ private areas to obtain federal funds for lunches, breakfasts, and snacks, the Biden administration announced this month. A U.S. Department of Education spokesman told The Federalist the Biden administration’s press releases from several agencies announcing this policy will be followed by formal rulemaking in June.

“It seems to be playing politics with feeding poor kids, which is really unfortunate,” John Elcesser, executive director of the Indiana Non-Public Education Association, said via phone amid weeks of attempting to sort out these new demands with government officials on behalf of private schools in his state. “Because if a school feels like they cannot participate because it’s in conflict with their mission or values, if a religious exemption is not granted, you’re taking away a program that’s feeding low-income kids.”

Before many schools shut down in response to Covid-19, the National School Lunch Program fed nearly 30 million kids every school day, in approximately 100,000 public and private schools and residential care facilities.

Under this new demand, establishments that accept any federal food funding, including food stamps, must also allow males who claim to be female to access female private spaces, such as showers, bathrooms, and sleeping areas. Such organizations must also follow protocols such as requiring staff to use inaccurate pronouns to describe transgender people and allowing male staff to dress as women while on the job.

Religious institutions, however, qualify for a waiver exempting them from these requirements, said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Greg Baylor in an interview Monday. According to the 1972 Title IX law, he said, religious institutions don’t have to file any paperwork to be exempt, although they can if they wish.

Baylor noted, however, that publicly affirming a commitment to sexual reality by seeking an exemption acknowledgment from federal agencies may assist extremist pressure campaigns. The activist group Human Rights Campaign’s blueprint for the Biden administration pushed for narrowing religious exemptions for multiple federal regulations and for the administration to “out” individuals and institutions who request such exemptions.

The Biden administration appears to be following that blueprint closely. According to Elcesser, USDA officials are telling schools to file paperwork to be exempt, although the Title IX law says that’s an option but not required. The USDA confirmed that to The Federalist Tuesday with this emailed statement: “Organizations may request a religious exemption by submitting a written declaration to the Secretary of Agriculture identifying the provisions that conflict with a specific tenet of the religious organization.”

Government schools can receive no exemption. At best, parents and taxpayers can urge school districts to not comply while inevitable lawsuits over the Biden administration’s interpretation work through courts for years.

“The Biden administration is grossly extending the Bostock holding where it does not belong. Like many of the Biden administration’s power grabs, this imposition transgresses areas of proper state and local authority. As the principal guardians of federalism, state attorneys general have the ability to combat such overreach where it injures state functions,” Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, a Republican, told The Federalist in a statement.

Even if this regulation is ultimately overturned by one means or another, millions of American children will be forced to eat their school lunches with a side of sexual politics.

“There is a lot of harm that comes from inflicting this interpretation of Title IX on public schools and private schools that are not eligible for the exemption,” Baylor said. In Loudoun County, Virginia, in 2021, a young woman was sexually assaulted in a school bathroom by a young man granted access by the district’s transgender policies.

Parents have told The Federalist that their daughters no longer use the bathrooms or locker rooms at their public schools because they don’t feel safe there. Many parents are finding after the fact that school districts are helping their children live as the opposite sex and hide that from their families.

“Some percentage of school districts want to be told by the federal government that they have to implement gender ideology,” Baylor observed. “If anyone complains, they can say, ‘We’re just doing what they told us. Go blame Joe Biden, not me.’”

As Biden promised to do while campaigning, his administration is pushing sexual confusion on as many institutions as it can. This aim has gotten a huge boost from the 2020 Supreme Court decision Bostock v. Clayton County, an unconstitutional ruling that gives this extremist sexual agenda a legal fig leaf. That 5-4 decision clinched by President Donald Trump-appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch, however, concerned sex differences not in education but employment……

MISINFORMATION WATCH: Young Women Speaks Truth About Upside Down Conditions in America Today [Video]

Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, especially that which is deliberately intended to deceive.

Disinformation is a subset of propaganda and is defined as false information that is spread deliberately to deceive people.

Malinformation or malicious information is having or showing a desire to cause harm to someone; given to, marked by, or arising from malice or malicious gossip.


It’s an upside down America

This young women speaks truth about how upside down conditions are in America today

Before and since the Uvalde Massacre there has been an ongoing effort to idolize criminals and criminality. It was a tweet, below, from Barrack Hussein Obama about the Uvalde Massacre that helps understand who and what is important to him and by inference the entire Democrat Party.

In one tweet Obama has chosen a black convicted felon over the police. By doing so he also chosen lawlessness over the rule of law.

Here is Jason Whitlock’s take on cops at the Uvalde Massacre school shooting stating in a tweet, “When your culture makes George Floyd the hero, real heroes stand down. Cultural rot has consequences.”

Cultural rot has consequences

This video interview by Jason Whitlock says everything you need to know about Barrack Hussein Obama, the current policies of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., his administration and goals of the Democrat Party.

Here is a tweet by Socialist Democrat Alexandra-Ocasio Cortez with a reply from Candice Owens that explains the evil incarnate mis, dis and malinformation that is part and parcel of the Democrat Party.

Recently Robert Hutchinson pointed out the following about recent massacres:

  • In 2017, a far-left Democrat and supporter of Bernie Sanders, James Hodgkinson, opened fire on a couple of dozen Congressional Republicans during softball practice, seriously wounding Representative Steve Scalise and lobbyist Mike Mika. Yet at no point did members of the Democratic Party or the corporate media begin clamoring for investigations into the dangers of socialism or of far-left Democratic Party activism.
  • Just a year earlier, a deranged black nationalist and Black Lives Matter supporter named Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed a group of police officers in Dallas. Armed with a Saiga AK-74 assault rifle, the Afghanistan veteran was able to shoot five officers dead and wounded nine others in the deadliest incident against law enforcement since 9/11. Yet there was not a single report on CNN and NBC News calling for investigations into the openly racist ideology behind Black Lives Matter or into the black nationalism that Johnson espoused.
  • In 2019, 24-year-old Connor Betts shot and killed nine people and wounded 17 others in Dayton, Ohio – an incident the media labeled as an act of racist white supremacy. The problem was, investigations quickly revealed that Betts was an avowed Satanist and supporter of far-left Antifa who hated Donald Trump and urged all his friends to vote only for Democrats.

The conclusion is that its not white supremacy or a gun, its the mis, dis and malinformation of some to further their political agenda.

It’s all about the cultural rot and mis, dis and malinformation that has taken hold in our nation and its consequences.

The Key to the Uvalde Massacre is: The Critical Importance of One Brave Good Guy with a Gun

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ― Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle


We have read numerus articles and watched dozens of video interviews about the Uvalde Massacre and we have come to the conclusion that in every case of a mass school shooting it’s critical to stop the bad guy with a gun immediately.

To stop a bad guy with a gun you must have a good guy with a gun who’s willing to go into the breech and use it to save lives.

One of the videos that was of great interest to us was done on CNN with Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. Chris Olivarez.

On CNN’s Situation Room interview Lt. Olivarez clearly states,

In the active shooter situation, you want to stop the killing, you want to preserve life. But also, one thing that, of course, the American people need to understand is that officers are making entry into this building. They do not know where the gunman is. They are hearing gunshots. They are receiving gunshots.

At that point, if they proceeded any further not knowing where the suspect was at, they could have been shot, they could have been killed, and at that point that gunman would have had an opportunity to kill other people inside that school.

This was followed by a tweet that raises a serious issue.

And these tweets:

This single tweet by Alexandra-Ocasio Cortez says it all.

The Bottom Line: Cultural rot has consequences

Vice.com reported:

It’s now clear that crucial minutes ticked by—around an hour—as police stood outside Robb Elementary while the gunman, Salvador Ramos, went on a killing spree inside a fourth-grade classroom. Dozens of Border Patrol agents did respond to support local officers, but it was a four-man team of tactical agents who went in together. And while their actions were undoubtedly heroic, one witness, a 10-year-old boy, has come forward to say the cops inadvertently helped the gunman identify another victim to shoot.

[ … ]

At a press conference Thursday, Victor Escalon, South Texas regional director for the Department of Public Safety, said that after an initial exchange of gunfire with the gunman as he entered the school and traversed the hallways, the initial police officers on the scene retreated and called for backup, including a Border Patrol tactical team. “Approximately an hour later,” Escalon said, Border Patrol agents arrived and killed Ramos. Escalon said there was “a lot of gunfire in the beginning” and that officers were subsequently “kept at bay” by additional shots.

It is past time to stop making public schools gun free zones. This only makes it easier for those like Salvador Ramos to do what he did. But  worse than that it was the inaction of local police that lead inextricably to more children be killed.

As Vice.com noted,

CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Patrol] responded immediately to the incident with local law enforcement,” Magnus said. “Many of our local CBP personnel live in Uvalde; they call this community home, and they work to protect their families, friends and neighbors every single day. We continue to coordinate closely with our federal, state and local partners in the aftermath of this senseless tragedy.”

Border Patrol agents are undoubtedly part of the fabric of the community in Uvalde, located about 70 miles east of the Del Rio port of entry on the Mexican border.

It is now more and more critical to have public, private and parochial schools defended by trained and armed individuals on campus at all times. Be it teachers, administrators, private security companies, local law enforcement or even parents.

It is clear that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun ever present.

Today, if it wasn’t for the Second Amendment we the people would not be able to defend ourselves, our children, our families and our schools and places of worship from the likes of Salvador Ramos.

America and the world needs more good men with rifles.

Live free and armed or die.

Idolatry: The worship of a cult image or “idol” as though it were God.


Before and since the Uvalde Massacre there has been an ongoing effort to idolize criminals and criminality. It was a tweet, below, from Barrack Hussein Obama about the Uvalde Massacre that helps understand who and what is important to him and by inference the entire Democrat Party.

In one tweet Obama has chosen a black convicted felon over the police. By doing so he also chosen lawlessness over the rule of law.

Here is Jason Whitlock’s take on cops at the Uvalde Massacre school shooting stating in a tweet, “When your culture makes George Floyd the hero, real heroes stand down. Cultural rot has consequences.”

Watch Jason explain what is happening to our young boys and men.

This single tweet by Jason Whitlock and video say everything you need to know about Barrack Hussein Obama, the current policies of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., his administration and goals of the Democrat Party.

What Obama has done is make it a priority to demonize the police while elevating a convicted felon into a cult idol. If you are black and a criminal then you’re idolized by the likes of Barack Hussein Obama. This fits the narrative of the Black Lives Matter movement and their goal to instill the myth that black lives matter more than any and all other lives.

Their combined messaging is that no matter how evil blacks are the police far are worse.

They’re worse because they arrest blacks for crimes that they have committed and in doing so some resist arrest and must be forcibly restrained. This was what happened with George Floyd.

Therefore ipso facto Floyd by being black, a felon, and dying while being restrained is elevated to the status of a black god.

The elevation of those like Floyd have the effect of now elevating one race as not jut superior to but to a godlike status. It’s a clear message to police across America, arrest a black man or woman at your own risk.

Here is a tweet by Socialist Democrat Alexandra-Ocasio Cortez with a reply from Candice Owens that explains the evil incarnate in the Democrat Party.

If I were against law and order

Democrats Introduced Bill to Get Police Out of Schools – Despite Slaughtered Children

If I were against law and order and didn’t care about the deaths of the 19 children and 2 adults massacred by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos I would:

  1. Make public schools gun free zones and not allow principals, law enforcement officers, teachers to be trained and armed to defend themselves and their students.
  2. I would use every school shooting to make America a gun free zone, using the myth that guns kill people, not evil people kill people.
  3. I would use people like Golden State Warriors basketball Coach Steve Kerr who “joined dozens of Oakland Unified School district parents and students who are calling for the district to dismantle its internal police force.”
  4. I would shout from the roof tops and in front of news cameras and from the school house to the White House “gun control, gun control, gun control and more gun control.”
  5. I would use filmmakers like Michael Moore to state on television, “We will not acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with. This country was birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun. This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We do not want to acknowledge or two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability behind our ability to become who we became.”
  6. I would create a black idols like racist propagandist Joy Reid who called for Canada, and Mexico to build walls in response to U.S. mass school shootings.
  7. Then I would get actors like Rob Reiner to blame the killing of innocent children by a deranged boy on my political opponents. I would put these word into Reiner’s mouth, “The blood of every child that dies of gun violence in this country is on the hands of the Republican Party.”
  8. Of course, I would have my evil servant from CNN Wolf Blitzer to state without proof that guns are “weapons of mass destruction” and are too easy to get in America. “Every time there is an incident like this, you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people,” Blitzer blathered for me, the devil.
  9. I would have the president of these United States call for totally disarming American citizens while the blood of the 19 Uvalde, Texas children is still fresh, the flags at half staff and their young  bodies not yet put in consecrated ground.
  10. Finally, I would have Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. unveil his Anti-Policing Policy on May 25, 2022, the 2nd anniversary of George Floyd’s death. Just a few days after a boy named Salvador Ramos massacred 19 children and two teachers.

The Bottom Line

Worshiping evil doers and making a cult image as though it were god in the black community will have the continuing effect of more crime the black communities. For example in these top five deadliest cities:

  1. St. Louis, Missouri with 64.54 murders per 100,000 residents,
  2. Baltimore, Maryland with 58.27 murders per 100,000 residents,
  3. Birmingham, Alabama with 50.62 murders per 100,000 residents,
  4. Detroit, Michigan with 41.45 murders per 100,000 residents,
  5. and Dayton, Ohio with 34.18 murders per 100,000 residents.

We have a crime and mental health problem in America.

Robert Hutchinson in a May 20, 2022 column titled “America Has a Crime and Mental Health Problem, Not a White Supremacy Problem” wrote:

Within hours of the Buffalo, New York, mass shooting on May 14 that claimed the lives of ten innocent black people, top Democratic officials were already citing the incident as proof that the number one social problem facing America is “white supremacy” and “white nationalism.”

The reason: the mentally ill Buffalo shooter, 18-year-old Payton Gendron, in addition to being openly racist against black Americans, also objected to unrestricted mass immigration and said so in a rambling 181-page manifesto on the subject.

The problem is, upwards of 60 percent of Americans – including Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders until about 2015 – have voiced concerns about open border policies, such as those now being openly implemented by the Biden Administration.

Hutchinson then pointed out the following massacres:

  • In 2017, a far-left Democrat and supporter of Bernie Sanders, James Hodgkinson, opened fire on a couple of dozen Congressional Republicans during softball practice, seriously wounding Representative Steve Scalise and lobbyist Mike Mika. Yet at no point did members of the Democratic Party or the corporate media begin clamoring for investigations into the dangers of socialism or of far-left Democratic Party activism.
  • Just a year earlier, a deranged black nationalist and Black Lives Matter supporter named Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed a group of police officers in Dallas. Armed with a Saiga AK-74 assault rifle, the Afghanistan veteran was able to shoot five officers dead and wounded nine others in the deadliest incident against law enforcement since 9/11. Yet there was not a single report on CNN and NBC News calling for investigations into the openly racist ideology behind Black Lives Matter or into the black nationalism that Johnson espoused.
  • In 2019, 24-year-old Connor Betts shot and killed nine people and wounded 17 others in Dayton, Ohio – an incident the media labeled as an act of racist white supremacy. The problem was, investigations quickly revealed that Betts was an avowed Satanist and supporter of far-left Antifa who hated Donald Trump and urged all his friends to vote only for Democrats.

The conclusion is that its not white supremacy or a gun, its the idolatry of some to further a political agenda.

It’s all about the cultural rot that has taken hold in our nation and its consequences.

Father of Parkland Victim Asks Why US Sends Billions to Other Countries But Won’t Fund School Safety in US

Are You Ready to Pay the Price of Equity and Equal Outcomes?

Monday is Memorial Day when we honor all military members who died while serving in the U.S. armed forces.  Unfortunately, the Army just lowered its physical fitness standards, a move critics say will get more U.S. soldiers killed.

Too many women were failing the physical fitness test under so-called “gender-neutral” standards, meaning identical requirements for men and women.  So the Army reinstated sex-norming, creating a different test with lower standards for women and older men.  They have to pick up less weight and get more time to complete a run. Senator Tom Cotton called the new test a “fiasco” that will “get people killed.”   That may be an overstatement, because the new test just measures basic physical fitness and does not change the additional requirements for combat roles or specialized jobs. However, there is already indication that’s what’s coming next.  Earlier this year, a whistleblower accused the Air Force of fudging physical fitness standards for a female candidate so she could make it through Special Tactics training.  Senator Cotton and other critics have a point when they highlight the Pentagon’s preoccupation with ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ and ‘fairness’ for women.  How would you like to be in combat alongside someone who you know didn’t really meet the standards to be there?

Lowering standards in the name of diversity or some other value is also going on outside the military. Critics say the preoccupation with diversity has damaged science and will ultimately mean fewer scientific discoveries in the future.  Democrats in Maryland want to keep police from removing homeless camps on public property.  Critics say the bill encourages law-breaking and vagrancy.

But nowhere is the lowering of standards more apparent than in education.

California is taking another stab at Woke Math which, like the first version, still lowers standards in the name of promoting racial justice and equal outcomes.

The California University System wants to do away with grades because students don’t all start in the same place and ‘equity’ must be served.

‘Equity’ was the battle cry of a high school principal in San Diego who eliminated racial disparities in honors classes by doing away with the classes altogether. Who did this hurt? Minority students who excel and will now have a harder time getting into top schools.

Some high schools in Colorado are doing away with class valedictorians. Learning is not a competition, they say, and all students can learn at high levels.  Following that logic, they should make every student valedictorian. Beats a participation trophy, doesn’t it?

The American Bar Association wants to do away with the LSAT law school entrance exam to increase diversity.   That’s funny.  MIT is bringing back standardized testing requirements to find talent and identify disadvantaged students, who with a little help, could be ready for MIT.

Georgetown Law, my alma mater, is changing its Property class to focus on structural racism and cultural appropriation.  Good luck passing the bar exam or serving your clients well if all you know is a bunch of Woke drivel.

A Seattle school has a new disciplinary policy which considers race when handing out punishments for breaking the rules.  Critics say this will lead to whites being punished more frequently and severely so the schools can even up the numbers of each racial group getting disciplined.

Thanks to new race-based admissions policies, Thomas Jefferson High School in Virginia – formerly one of the top high schools in the country – is now reduced to offering remedial education and tutoring at the 8th-grade level to entering students.  TJ used to be an elite school for smart kids.  No more.

Students benefit more from higher expectations than from lower standards, including minority and low-income students.  That’s a fact.  So, when Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke tells you lowering standards is essential for promoting diversity in college classrooms, she is leading you astray.

As the stories I’ve told you today show, the mindless preoccupation with diversity is a good way to damage science, hold minorities back from being all they can be and, maybe, even get soldiers killed.  If we did a poll, I bet we would get a lot of support for lowering standards if diversity is the only goal.  But if we changed the poll question to ‘do you support an exclusive focus on diversity given all the drawbacks that will have and all the damage it will do,’ I bet support would drop significantly.  It’s easy to say ‘I want free ice cream,’ but not so easy when you factor in rotten teeth and expensive trips to the dentist.    It’s time to end the exclusive preoccupation with diversity and bring things into better balance.  MIT is showing the way.

Welcome To The ‘Green’ Digital Gulag

The convergence of the Communist and capitalist wellsprings of the new world order – and its ominous implications for Americans and others who love freedom – was on display in Davos, Switzerland yesterday.

At the globalist World Economic Forum, the Chinese Communist Party’s tech giant, Alibaba, unveiled the next big thing in the planet’s inexorable march to the Digital Gulag. It’s called a “personal carbon footprint tracker.”

Evidently, we need not be concerned that Alibaba is a key enabler of the CCP’s totalitarian surveillance state and its uber- Orwellian “Social Credit System.” That’s because, while this tracker will monitor your whereabouts, travel, personal consumption and behavior – offering you inducements to do “the right thing ” – there’s no reason to worry that all of that data will be collected and monitored by Communist China because, you see, it’s “green.”

And you will like being green.

This is Frank Gaffney.

A Gallon of Gas Now Costs More Than the Federal Minimum Wage in These US Cities

High fuel prices are a painful reminder that there’s a price to overlooking secondary consequences, even in a country as wealthy as the United States.


As nearly 40 million Americans prepare to travel for Memorial Day weekend, they’re confronted with an unpleasant reality: gasoline prices are through the roof.

Last week, for the first time ever, gas prices topped $4 in every single state. On Wednesday, Florida hit a new record high—$4.57 a gallon. That’s a lot, but it pales in comparison to California, where the average price per gallon was $6.06 as of Monday. In some parts of the Golden State, however, prices are even much higher.

A CBS News article published Tuesday pointed out that the price of a gallon of gas at many California service stations was higher than the federal minimum wage. According to GasBuddy, the following locations were $7.25+.

Chevron at 901 N. Alameda St. in Los Angeles: $7.83 a gallon

Chevron at 51557 US-395 in Lee Vining: $7.39 a gallon

Chevron at 712 North CA-127 in Shoshone: $7.39 a gallon

Shell at 453 Main St. in Bridgeport: $7.39 a gallon

Valero at 377 Main St. in Bridgeport: $7.35 a gallon

Mobil at 8489 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles: $7.29 a gallon

Shell at 51424 US-395 in Lee Vining: $7.29 a gallon

Mobil at 22 Vista Point Drive in Lee Vining: $7.29 a gallon

Chevron at 3600 Alameda Drive in Menlo Park: $7.25 a gallon

Many people would look at the figures above and come to a simple conclusion: the federal minimum wage needs to be increased!

Unfortunately, it’s precisely that kind of economic thinking that landed Americans with $7.25 gasoline.

The urge to mandate “good” things and ban “bad” things is at the root of many of the greatest problems facing America today. Both of these actions share a common, unwelcome bedfellow: unintended consequences.

The historian Niall Ferguson has noted that “the law of unintended consequences is the only real law of history”—and for good reason. It’s an idea that stretches back to philosopher John Locke, economists Adam Smith and Frédéric Bastiat, and beyond.

When politicians raise the minimum wage, the intended consequence is clear: a higher wage for workers. The unintended consequences get less attention: less employment, higher consumer prices, reduced benefits, and in many cases lower compensation for workers.

Similarly, when politicians kill oil pipelines, restrict fracking, cancel drilling leases, and pass a slew of energy regulations that can hardly be counted, the intended consequence is (sort of) clear: less reliance on fossil fuels. The unintended consequences, however, are painful: higher energy prices.

This is why the great writer Henry Hazlitt, the author of Economics in One Lesson, said it was imperative to consider the secondary consequences of a given action, something people often fail to do.

“This is the persistent tendency of men to see only the immediate effects of a given policy, or its effects only on a special group,” Hazlitt wrote in his seminal work, “and to neglect to inquire what the long-run effects of that policy will be not only on that special group but on all groups. It is the fallacy of overlooking secondary consequences.”

High gas prices won’t stop my family from enjoying our annual Memorial Day mini-vacation.

We’ll be traveling to Appleton, Wisconsin for some R&R with friends and family. There will be lots of swimming, cornhole, meat sizzling on the grill, and some cold, frothy beverages for the adults. But we’re in the fortunate position; we don’t feel gasoline prices as much as the average American family. My wife and I both work and are in our prime earning years. Our cars and student loans are paid off. The kids are all out of daycare.

But I wonder how many families around the country will struggle to fill that tank this Memorial Day weekend, and how many might have to skip their vacation altogether because they just can’t make ends meet.

It makes me sad to think about it, frankly.

Still, it’s a good reminder that even in a country like the USA, which has so much, there’s a price to pay for overlooking secondary consequences. It’s also a good reminder that bans and mandates are not the path to a prosperous future.

Trump’s Endorsements Are Inflating The Swamp

“True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best.” – Sinclair B. Ferguson

“Know your HOLY GOD intimately. (When you have seen His glory, His holiness and His love – by drawing close to Him in prayer – then you can usually see through any counterfeits because you know the “real thing” so well).” – Andrew Strom

“The difference between genius and stupidity is . . .genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein

“Trust a politician just as you would trust a rattlesnake: only when he is dead!” – Bud Hancock


The latest rage is Dinesh D’Souza’s movie, 2000 Mules.  As with Mike Lindell’s massive voter fraud exposes, mainstream media won’t utter a word, but then neither will Fox News nor Newsmax.  When Fox’s Tucker Carlson interviewed Catherine Englebrecht of True the Vote, Carlson and his team explicitly told her not to mention the movie 2000 Mules.

D’Souza also tweeted that he was booked on Newsmax’s Grant Stinchfield show and then the network cancelled on him.  Why isn’t the movie national news?  The same reason Mike Lindell’s My Pillow advertisements have been eliminated from every conservative news source.  The left’s Pravda media destroys and marginalizes those who speak the truth.

The propaganda mill churns on.  Right now, the only programs speaking the truth are Steve Bannon, One America News, and some absolutely amazing radio hosts and journalists.

Vote Fraud is Old News

Vote fraud is nothing new.  In 1948, Lyndon Baines Johnson lost the Texas Senate election to the beloved former Texas Governor Coke Stevenson.  Fraud and corruption changed the election to a win for LBJ, and it was sanctioned by Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.  Yes, the high court wasn’t any better in the 40s than it is today.

In the 2018 election many republicans won, only to see their wins slip away weeks later after recounts.  In 2020, we saw massive fraud throughout the country, especially in the swing states.  Eric Holder traveled the country for two years assuring state attorney generals and legislatures were amenable to changes that would help democrats. Holder was also chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, using racism, the gender impact of voter suppression, redistricting and the Census. Link

The Democrats work hard to swindle and cheat the American people, while the Republicans sit back and twiddle their thumbs.

Trump Endorsement Advisors

And here we are at the 2022 midterm elections and former President Trump is endorsing the candidates his “advisors” have told him will win.

President Trump has apparently become a full-fledged neo-con politician listening not to his gut and the American people, but to deep state advisors who are telling him to choose winners, not those who love the Republic and want to restore her greatness, but only those who can win. In doing so, he has alienated the masses in order to be able to say, “Look, all my endorsements won, MAGA is still strong.” That is political deep state bull hockey.

Hasn’t President Trump learned by now that electing neo-con Trotskyite Republicans does nothing to save the Republic?  Reps like Romney, Collins, Murkowski and others are not going to stop the left; neither will they support constitutional conservatism.

According to a January 2022 article from NBC, “A small set of advisors, led by longtime counselor Susie Wiles, vets candidates seeking Trump’s endorsement. The group includes Bill Stepien, who managed Trump’s 2020 campaign; Brian Jack, the White House political director under Trump; and Donald Trump Jr., according to people familiar with the process.”

This article, tells us more about Susie Wiles, who is the co-chair of a public affairs firm where she works with a recent Pfizer vice president.  Wiles also recently joined Mercury Public Affairs in February as co-chair, shortly after former Democrat congressman Toby Moffett became a Mercury partner.  Remember California Dem Senator Barbara Boxer?  She and other lefties have also recently worked for Mercury, a subsidiary of the company Omnicom.  The new managing director at Mercury is Robert Jones who spent the previous 19 years serving as senior vice president of government relations and public affairs at Pfizer.

It appears that our former president hasn’t a clue of the evils perpetrated by the pharmaceutical companies over the years, and especially with their Covid jabs. Trump has ignored the fact that FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) given to Pfizer, Moderna and J&J has caused countless deaths and adverse effects worldwide.  Here is a website listing all pharmaceutical companies and their horrible histories. The actual statistics are mind boggling and he’s still promoting the inoculations!

Bill Stepien is a U.S. political consultant who has worked for President George W. Bush in 2004, former New Jersey Governor Abu Chris Christie, and former Arizona Senator John McCain.  Stepien went on to serve as deputy chief of staff and political adviser to Governor Christie until his removal in January 2014 following the September 2013 Lane closures on the George Washington Bridge.

These are the people choosing who Trump should endorse!

Dr. Mehmet Oz

Numerous Trump endorsements were questioned by his supporters, but the one most talked about was Dr. Mehmet Cengiz Oz, a Turkish Muslim.

Dr. Oz holds dual citizenship in Turkey and the United States.  There appears to be no dispute that Oz voted in the 2018 Turkish election.”  Former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo warned Pennsylvania voters that Dr. Oz voted in Turkey’s elections, and works for state entities in the country, and that makes Oz a threat to national security.

As attorney and former JAG Corps officer, Joanna Martin wrote, “Oz is an ineligible candidate.  Article I, Sec. 3, clause 3, US Constitution, sets forth the qualifications to be a United States Senator: among other things, one must have been for nine years a Citizen of the US.   A Citizen of the United States doesn’t vote in Turkish elections.”

Dr. Oz has made countless television statements that prove he is not at all conservative, socially or otherwise.

Videos are included in this link where Dr. Oz promotes transgenderism as well as surgery for children.  In 2019, he argued for upholding Roe v. Wade, and back in 2009, he bragged on CNN that he had helped to bring Obamacare to fruition.  (And what a mess our medical system is only 13 years later.)  In another video, Dr. Oz says we should have Red Flag Laws that take people’s firearms away by surveilling their social media posts.  Oz also believes Critical Race Theory should be taught in our government schools inasmuch as he sees racism as a problem.

And, from the Miami Standard, “Dr. Oz was photographed in April of this year with ‘Spirit Cooking’ specialist Marina Abramovic, who infamously appeared in the emails of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign boss John Podesta, who scored an invitation to a ‘Spirit Cooking’ ritual with Abramovic. The occultic symbolism evident in Abramovic’s work has been scrutinized for years. And yet Dr. Oz and Abramovic apparently had a very engrossing conversation with one another. The two mingled closely at the American Turkish Society Gala at New York’s The Plaza on October 26 of the year 2021.

Hatchet Job on Kathy Barnette

There were three top people running for Senate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, David McCormick and Kathy Barnette.  The election as of May 22nd is still not decided between Oz and McCormick. Malicious verbal attacks in an attempt to destroy her reputation were launched against Kathy Barnette by conservative hosts, media outlets, and politicians.  As such, the people of Pennsylvania apparently believed the lies and Kathy came in third.

Barnette delivered a powerful pro-life message during the debate with the four other candidates.  She also told both McCormick and Oz that she knew they belonged to the World Economic Forum and were globalists.  Oz is bad enough, and David McCormick isn’t any better. McCormick is pro-China, pro-forever wars and pro-trade deals; he’s just another globalist.

Sadly, America loses again; the end result is between two men who will ultimately vote to destroy even more of our liberties and freedoms.  Perhaps the elite noticed that after the 2020 election, Kathy hit the road in Pennsylvania to alert the citizenry of massive voter fraud in their state. She was loud and outspoken against it.  She drove all over the state repeatedly the past couple of years speaking out against it. She became well known to the grassroots.

Kathy was slandered, libeled and had her reputation bludgeoned prior to the primary vote.  Look familiar?  It’s the same thing the media did to Donald Trump, and he too jumped on the bandwagon to sabotage her campaign.  First up was Ric Grenell, a diplomat who had served as Acting Director of National Intelligence in Trump’s administration.  Sean Hannity took plenty of shots at her, as did Newsmax’s Greg Kelly and neo-conservative Breitbart, all of whom supported Oz.  Kathy doesn’t support BLM or defunding the police, despite the lies told by these neo-cons.

But Dr. Oz went even further. Because of something Barnette said in 2015, Dr. Oz wanted Barnette barred from the race for a thought crime.  Oz claimed she was an Islamophobic and should be barred for not having a positive view of Islam.  Shariah Law and the U.S. Constitution are not compatible.  Judaism and Christianity can be slandered and it’s just fine with our Pravda media, but never ever say a word against George W. Bush’s “Religion of Peace.”

Laura Ingraham revealed that a number of Kathy’s videos were doctored in an attempt to smear her reputation. Steve Bannon had Kathy on his show and let her speak freely.  In fact, Bannon has stopped endorsing the same people President Trump endorses.

Both Jack Posobiec and Colonel Lawrence Sellin (Rtd) checked Kathy’s credentials and they were factual and stellar.  Colonel Sellin stated, “It was all dirty politics by those with more power and money. Oz is a Democrat running as a Republican and a mole for Turkish Islamist dictator Erdogan. Trump made a terrible mistake endorsing Oz. It has permanently changed my view of Trump.”

Ohio Senate – J. D. Vance

Dr. Oz certainly is one of the worst candidates endorsed by Trump, but when he endorsed J.D. Vance in Ohio, I was shocked.  Vance had actually voted for former CIA agent and Never -Trumper Evan McMullen in the 2016 election. He called Trump’s policies immoral to absurd and publicly stated that Trump would become either another Nixon or America’s Hitler.  Of course, Vance back peddled on these statements to gain Trump’s endorsement for his Ohio Senate race.

Arizona Gubernatorial Race – Kari Lake

Former news anchor for Fox 10 in Phoenix, Kari Lake was endorsed by President Trump for the Arizona gubernatorial race.  She is a registered republican, but was a democrat voter in 2008 for Barack Hussein Obama.  She has also been registered as an independent.  She is a constant guest on Fox News, and will likely be the next governor of Arizona.  In 2004, she donated to then candidate, John Kerry, and in 2008 to Obama.  When reporters ask her about this, she gets angry and either trashes the reporter and/or walks off the set.  The very same thing happened when she was asked by Australian reporter, Liam Bartlett, if she agreed with President Trump that the January 6th Trump supporters should be pardoned…she not only trashed the reporter, but his country as well. Link

Unfortunately, Trump should have called Congressman Andy Biggs before endorsing her, because the word is, Kari Lake is another John McCain and is far worse than their present governor, Doug Ducey.

Indiana Congressman Greg Pence

When an Indiana friend told me Trump had endorsed Mike Pence’s brother Greg for his second term in the House, I wondered why he didn’t just keep his mouth shut.  It took him forever to endorse Doug Mastriano for Governor of Pennsylvania, but right out of the box he endorses the brother of his former vice president who not only stabbed Trump in the back, but the Republic in the heart.  (See this three-part expose on Mike Pence.)

What the hell was he thinking?  Oh, I know, Republicans at all costs, and only those who can win will he endorse.  Ultimately, we will end up with a slew of McConnells and McCarthys! Well, thanks Mr. President, but you’re feeding the swamp.

Conclusion

Trump’s choice of unvetted Deep Staters in his administration, his “Operation Warp Speed” death jabs, and now his candidate endorsements, leave me cold.  I agree with Colonel Lawrence Sellin.  All of these things have permanently changed my view of Trump.

Assassination in Tehran

The motorcycle killers who got to the Quds Force Colonel were playing hardball.


The motorcycle killers who assassinated a senior Quds Force officer in Tehran on Sunday knew what they were doing.

According to Iranian media accounts, accomplices blocked the street behind the target’s car by double-parking and raising their trunk, clearing the way for the motorcycle killers who shot Colonel Hassan Sayyad Khodaei five times as he was about to drive off in his Kia Pride.

The feat was even more brazen since the Colonel’s street led directly to the Iranian parliament, one of the most secure areas of Tehran. The assassins hit Khodaei from behind in the head and the heart, blowing out both the driver and the passenger side windows of his car, according to photos subsequently released to the Iranian media.

The Iranian regime immediately blamed Israel for the assassination, referring to Khodaei as a “defender of the shrine,” a reference to Quds Force officers engaged in the fight against ISIS in Syria.

Khodaei, whose real name was Bahram, was one of three brothers who joined the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in the 1980s and fought in the war against Iraq. All three brothers, and four more Khodaei cousins, later became officers in the elite Quds Force, Iranian sources said.

Israeli media initially identified Khodaei as a senior officer in charge of Quds Force expeditionary forces inside Syria. Subsequent reports said he was in charge of Hezbollah missile bases inside Syria, and tasked with “attacking Israeli interests and citizens abroad as deputy commander of Unit 840.”

The Israel Defense Force spokesman identified Unit 840 eighteen months ago as the Quds Force group that had been placing mines and IED’s in the Golan Heights along Israel’s border with Syria.

An Iranian source told me, Khodaei supervised deliveries to Syria of advanced targeting kits for Hezbollah missiles.

Most intriguing, however, are suggestions that Khodaei was fingered by an alleged Quds Force assassin named Mansour Rasouli, who was captured and interrogated by Mossad operatives last month.

Mossad reportedly captured Khodaei inside Iranian Kurdistan while he was en route to Turkey to assassinate three Western targets, including an Israeli consular official in Turkey. The opposition Iran International television network posted what it claimed were audio recordings of Rasouli’s confessions, where he expressed remorse over his mission.

Iranian Telegram channels said that Khodaei’s nickname was “hunter,” a reference to this alleged role in luring and attacking Israelis, Iranian dissidents, and anti-Iran regime activists overseas.

Earlier this month, the Times of Israel reported that Israel’s security service, Shin Bet, had foiled an effort by the Iranian regime to lure Israeli academics, business people, and former defense officials to Europe, to attend a phony security conference in Zurich, Switzerland.

The report showed an email, purportedly signed by a Swiss researcher named Oliver Thränart, inviting an Israeli intelligence reporter to an annual “Zurich Strategic Dialogue,” scheduled for January 14, 2022.  The email requested that the guest fill out an application form and comply with Swiss Covid-19 requirements.

I received an identical email from that same Oliver Thränart last October, inviting me to the same January 14, 2022, conference. After a couple of exchanges, Thränart droped off the radar until Christmas, when he said that the conference had been cancelled because of the Omicron variant.

I have long been targeted by the Iranian regime, as I reveal in a new memoire of my exploits as a war correspondent and investigative reporter that will be released on August 31.

Initially, the Iranians targeted me because I was investigating their clandestine nuclear weapons program – more than a decade before it was exposed to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the IAEA. Later, they attempted to lure me to phony opposition “conferences” because of my role as the founder and CEO of the Foundation for Democracy in Iran (FDI), iran.org.

Hassan Shariatmadari, the editor of the regime daily Kayhan and a IRGC brigadier general, regularly attacked FDI as a CIA-funded anti-regime organization.

In a Dec. 8, 2007 column, he absurdly claimed that FDI had a “four-layer plan” to topple the Iranian regime, led by yours truly, “who heads the Iran desk at CIA.”

In a series of articles in September 2009, Shariatmadari claimed that I was spearheading the latest wave of anti-regime demonstrations inside Iran. “While we would be happy to accept such an honor,” I replied in the name of the foundation, “neither I nor my board can take credit for such power or influence.” The full statement is here.

The most recent Shariatmadari screed dates from December 4, 2019, when he linked my alleged efforts to overthrow the regime to similar efforts by then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “Kenneth Timmerman, former CIA member and currently director of the American Institute NED [National Endowment for Democracy], acknowledged that the CIA has not only helped the Iranian rioters with software systems, but also delivered to them the hardware.” (I have had no association with NED since 1997, and have no idea what software systems he is referring to).

This is a regime that never gives up, and that spends enormous sums of money to track its opponents and hunt them down. In the 1990s, they sent hit teams across Europe, where they assassinated more than 200 top leaders of the opposition in exile. In the 2000s and beyond, they have snatched opponents in Iraq and elsewhere and hustled them back to Tehran, where they have been summarily executed.

In a particularly egregious case, they have also enlisted the intelligence and judicial authorities of a friendly state, the Republic of Georgia, to frame a defector from Iranian intelligence who became a witness in a civil lawsuit by families of 9/11 victims against Iran. Falsely sentenced to 17 years for a crime he did not commit nor even imagine, Hamid Reza Zakeri continues to languish in a Tbilisi jail.

It’s still early to know the bill of particulars that led Israel – or someone else – to assassinate a Quds Force Colonel in Tehran. But one thing is certain: the Iranians play hardball. And so do the Israelis.

How to Assassinate a Former President: Open the Border

You may have heard in the news the FBI foiled an Islamic State-connected plot to assassinate former President George W. Bush.  What you might not have heard is how Joe Biden’s open borders policies made the plot possible.

The plot involved smuggling four Islamic State-linked terrorists from Iraq across the southern border, a border now leaky as a sieve under Biden.  The plot mastermind entered the U.S. on a visitor visa, then applied for asylum.  Under Trump, he most likely would have been detained, then deported if his claim failed.    But under Biden, illegal aliens filing asylum claims are routinely released into the interior of the country and told to show up in court years later.  Surprise, surprise – not everyone does.  What self-respecting terrorist would?

FBI Director Christopher Wray just testified to Congress yesterday, “any porous point of entry is a potential vulnerability that bad actors of all sorts, including national security threats, can seek to exploit.”  And so they do.  Recently, it was reported 42 illegal aliens on terrorist watch lists have been caught at the border since Biden took office.   Nobody knows how many more suspected terrorists are among the 600,000 known ‘gotaways’ now freely roaming the U.S. after entering the country on Biden’s watch.   We do know the Border Patrol released a suspected terrorist from Colombia into the U.S. in April who was not apprehended for three weeks.  It doesn’t take three weeks to travel from the border to Dallas, where the plot to assassinate George W. Bush was to take place.

It’s undeniable the Biden administration has opened the border to a considerable degree.  I’ve documented and compiled in previous commentaries the numerous policy changes the Biden administration has instituted to open the border [Daily Skirmish – 4/28/22].  But all we get out of DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is gaslighting.  He’s on record telling the nation “The border is closed, the border is secure.”  In reality, accommodating new arrivals and moving them through the asylum pipeline as quickly as possible is the plan and will remain the plan when the rush to the border begins after COVID restrictions there end.

One interesting feature of the plan is the increasing reliance of the Biden administration on left-wing activist groups to perform governmental functions to alleviate the problems Biden’s loose immigration policies have caused.  The DHS is giving out $150 million in grants to outside groups to deal with the increasing numbers of new arrivals.  Full employment for Lefties – that’s just great, and you’re paying for it.

Undoubtedly, some of this money will find its way to left-wing groups in D.C. meeting the buses Governor Greg Abbott is sending from Texas.  These groups are providing new arrivals with food, clothing, shelter, and medical care.  One account portrays all this as being done by volunteers taking action because the government has done nothing in response to the buses.  But it won’t be long before these groups pick up the scent of government grant money, if they haven’t already.  The pattern is likely to repeat, once Florida starts sending illegal aliens to Biden’s home state of Delaware when COVID restrictions at the border end.

So, the Biden administration gets to pay a little money and avoid responsibility for the immigration mess it has created.  In fact, Biden and Mayorkas come out ahead because they get to reward their Lefty friends with government contracts, thus ensuring their loyalty and making the Left stronger all around.

Cronyism and terrorism, just two of the consequences of Joe Biden’s ruinous open borders policies.

If I Were the Devil I Would Vote Democrat to Keep Public Schools Gun Free Zones and Disarm Every Single American

After the sad yet predictable massacre in Uvalde, Texas I was reminded of ABC Radio commentator Paul Harvey’s April 3, 1965 radio commentary titled “If I Were The Devil.”

If I Were The Devil

If I were the devil I would:

  1. Make public schools gun free zones and not allow principals, law enforcement officers, teachers to be trained and armed to defend themselves and their students.
  2. I would use every school shooting to make America a gun free zone, using the myth that guns kill people, not evil people kill people.
  3. I would use people like Golden State Warriors basketball Coach Steve Kerr who “joined dozens of Oakland Unified School district parents and students who are calling for the district to dismantle its internal police force.”
  4. I would shout from the roof tops and in front of news cameras and from the school house to the White House “gun control, gun control, gun control and more gun control.”
  5. I would use filmmakers like Michael Moore to state on television, “We will not acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with. This country was birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun. This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We do not want to acknowledge or two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability behind our ability to become who we became.”
  6. I would create a black Eve like racist propagandist Joy Reid to call for Canada, and Mexico to build walls in response to U.S. mass school shootings.
  7. Then I would get actors like Rob Reiner to blame the killing of innocent children by a deranged boy on my political opponents. I would put these word into Reiner’s mouth, “The blood of every child that dies of gun violence in this country is on the hands of the Republican Party.”
  8. Of course, I would have my servant from CNN Wolf Blitzer to state without proof that guns are “weapons of mass destruction” and are too easy to get in America. “Every time there is an incident like this, you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people,” Blitzer blathered for me, the devil.
  9. I would have the president of these United States call for totally disarming citizens while the blood of the Uvalde, Texas children is still fresh, the flags at half staff and their young  bodies not yet put in consecrated ground.
  10. Finally, I would have Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. unveil his Anti-Policing Policy on May 25, 2022, the 2nd anniversary of George Floyd’s death. Just a few days after a boy named Salvador Ramos massacred 19 children and two teachers.

But I wouldn’t stop there for if I were the Devil I would also:

  1. Worship the earth as an “environmentalist” and not God the creator of the heavens and earth.
  2. I would destroy our culture by allowing LGBTQ+ teachers to groom our youth. I would teach them that sex between men is good and not sinful and unnatural. I would put this in the public schools classrooms, in textbooks and in the media centers across America.
  3. I would have films, TV shows and even cartoons made that promote homosexuality and evil.
  4. I would dedicate myself to destroying America because it is evil, racist and promotes white supremacy by creating books, theories and school programs from K-16 to shame white children.
  5. I would create groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa to carry out the devil’s work day in and day out.
  6. I would cheat to win elections and thereby win offices of power.
  7. I would promote myths like diversity, inclusion and equity from the classroom to the board room to the halls of Congress.
  8. I would legalize drugs like marijuana and decriminalize the use of other drugs in the name of social justice.
  9. I would embrace the ideals of Marx, Hitler, Stalin, Mohammed and Mao to further my political agendas.
  10. I would go woke to further my cultural war against God, the traditional family and my Constitutional Republic.
  11. I would create viruses and diseases in foreign laboratories and then spread these viruses and diseases globally in order to mandate to my citizens what they can and cannot do with their healthcare.
  12. I would allocate millions for COVID relief but then send the money to museums and university programs that are pushing “social and climate justice.”
  13. Finally, I would use my governmental powers to destroy any and all who oppose my devilish pogrom’s. Thus I would literally create hell on earth.

The Bottom Line

If I were the Devil I would vote with the Democrat Party up and down the ticket and continue to have them to do my bidding which is to enslave thee the people.

I would have the Democrat Party keep doing exactly what’s doing as they pray to me these words “our father who art in Washington, D.C.”

The Devil Went Down to Texas: The Utter Evil of the Uvalde Massacre

To massacre children is literally Satanic.

Paul Harvey: If I were the Devil…


It’s hard to know what to say in the wake of a heart-rending tragedy like Tuesday’s massacre in Uvalde, Texas. It would be easy—but irresponsible—to interpret the event conclusively when so little is known. It would be easy—but wrong—to try, in spite of that ignorance, to force one’s narrative framework on it in pursuit of an agenda.

But our attention is irresistibly drawn to such a horror. We are compelled to stop and silently reflect. But, after reflecting, it is imperative that we talk about it—to express condolences and outrage, yes, but also to learn from it as best we can. To truly honor the victims, we must figure out how to prevent similar atrocities from happening again.

Especially at this early stage, it is impossible to know exactly what would lead a person to do something so evil. But certain revelations about the 18-year-old killer raise societal issues that, even if they weren’t the decisive factors in this case, are tremendously important regarding the issue of violence—and evil—in general.

The Daily Beast reports:

Although Salvador Ramos was described as “quiet” by numerous people who knew him, a young woman who worked with him at Wendy’s until March detected an aggressive streak. Several former friends said he had stopped showing up at school and was not going to graduate with the senior class this year.

“He would be very rude towards the girls sometimes, and one of the cooks, threatening them by asking, ‘Do you know who I am?’ And he would also send inappropriate texts to the ladies,” said the former co-worker, who did not want her name used.

“At the park, there’d be videos of him trying to fight people with boxing gloves. He’d take them around with him.

Some would attribute such an “aggressive streak” to males being broadly socialized to be forcefully assertive and competitive. They largely blame this culture of “toxic masculinity” for mass shootings and violent crime in general, both of which are predominantly committed by men.

This blame is misplaced, however. As Jordan Peterson wrote in 12 Rules for Life:

“Those who put forward such theories assume, first, that aggression is a learned behaviour, and can therefore simply not be taught, and second (to take a particular example) that, ‘boys should be socialized the way girls have been traditionally socialized, and they should be encouraged to develop socially positive qualities such as tenderness, sensitivity to feelings, nurturance, cooperative and aesthetic appreciation.’ In the opinions of such thinkers, aggression will only be reduced when male adolescents and young adults ‘subscribe to the same standards of behavior as have been traditionally encouraged for women.’”

Peterson above quotes “Prescription for reduction of aggression,” a 1980 paper published by L.D. Eron in The American Psychologist.

But as Peterson points out, “it is not the case that aggression is merely learned.” Aggression is an innate part of human nature that can manifest very early in life (emphasis added):

“…it appears that a subset of two-year-old boys (about 5 percent) are quite aggressive, by temperament. They take other kids’ toys, kick, bite and hit. Most are nonetheless socialized effectively by the age of four. This is not, however, because they have been encouraged to act like little girls. Instead, they are taught or otherwise learn in early childhood to integrate their aggressive tendencies into more sophisticated behavioural routines. Aggression underlies the drive to be outstanding, to be unstoppable, to compete, to win—to be actively virtuous, at least along one dimension. Determination is its admirable, pro-social face. Aggressive young children who don’t manage to render their temperament sophisticated by the end of infancy are doomed to unpopularity, as their primordial antagonism no longer serves them socially at later ages. Rejected by their peers, they lack further socialization opportunities and tend towards outcast status. These are the individuals who remain much more inclined toward antisocial and criminal behavior when adolescent and adult.

“Outcast status”—the bottom of the pecking order—is a dreadful place to be trapped, especially for a young man. Judging from reported testimony, that is exactly where Ramos resided. As The Daily Beast related:

Former friend Santos Valdez Jr., told The Washington Post that the two had been close friends until Ramos’ behavior started to “deteriorate.” He said Ramos, who was often bullied over a speech impediment that included a stutter and lisp, once cut up his own face with a knife “just for fun.”

Some men become so resentful of their lowly place in “the order of things” that they seek to bring the whole structure crashing down, even if it means their own destruction. They are desperate for appreciation and respect: to feel high-status. But they have failed to learn how to earn it by channeling their assertive and competitive impulses in pro-social directions. So they decide to go out in a blaze of infamous “glory,” to, just for once and however fleetingly, feel “powerful,” even if they are too cowardly to assert their dominance over anyone other than little children.

Such a wicked deed is to say literally, “to Hell with it.” To Hell with society, with morality, with the structure of Being itself. It is to say, as Satan did in Paradise Lost when, resentful of his status, he tried to overthrow God, “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.” To commit such nihilistic rebellion is to embody the archetype of the Devil, the Adversary, the Villain.

Again, I don’t know if that’s what happened in the case of Salvador Ramos. But I wonder if it is. And in any case, I do believe the potential for such evil is inherent to the human condition and must be guarded against by us all.

But the preventative for that evil is not to try to repress (or disarm) the assertive, competitive, and ambitious energies that can feed it, as many efforts to address so-called “toxic masculinity” end up doing. The solution, as Peterson explained, is to channel those energies toward the good: toward individual accomplishment, enterprise, great deeds, and heroic service.

If we want people—young men especially—to reject the role of the Villain, we must encourage them to embrace the role of the Hero.

Why Those Under 60 Are More Likely to Die if Jabbed

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • According to a recent modeling experiment, “Increased contact among vaccinated people can give the false impression that COVID-19 vaccines are not working”
  • This rationale is dubious at best, considering the unvaccinated have continuously been accused of not taking COVID seriously and going about their lives as normal, while the “vaccinated” are, by and large, more fearful and take “authorities” advice to heart, which includes avoiding large gatherings and close one-on-one interactions without wearing a face mask
  • Many data sources reveal that COVID-jabbed individuals are now getting COVID-19 at far higher rates than the unjabbed. Death rates, both for COVID and other causes, have also risen in tandem with the number of shots administered
  • According to an analysis of U.S. data, in September 2021, when Delta was most prominent, 23% of those who died from COVID had received the jab. In January and February 2022, when Omicron started dominating, that percentage jumped to 42%
  • Many argue that Omicron was more contagious than Delta, hence the higher death toll. But Omicron was also far milder than Delta, and there’s no reason the jabbed would die at a higher rate from a less lethal variant than a more lethal one, unless the injection made the infection worse
  • A preprint study found adult participants in Moderna’s trial who got the real injection and later got a breakthrough infection did not generate antibodies against the nucleocapsid — a key component of the virus — as frequently as did those in the placebo arm. Their anti-nucleocapsid response was also lower regardless of the viral load. As a result of this reduced antibody response, those who got the jab may be more prone to repeated COVID infections

Well, the COVID jab pushers have had to resort to all sorts of obfuscation to hide the fact that the injections don’t work, and now they’re really scraping the bottom of the barrel of excuses. According to a recent Reuters report,1 “Increased contact among vaccinated people can give the false impression that COVID-19 vaccines are not working.”

This irrational explanation has been levied in response to studies showing COVID-jabbed individuals are getting infected at higher rates than the unjabbed, and there are many such studies.

“These studies are likely to involve statistical errors, particularly if they did not account for different contact patterns among vaccinated versus unvaccinated people,” Korryn Bodner, a research associate in infectious disease modeling in Toronto, told Reuters. Bodner is the first author of a preprint study2 posted on medRxiv at the end of April 2022.

Are the Jabbed More Carefree Than the Unvaxxed?

Bodner’s claim is that those who got the jab may be more likely to throw caution to the wind and mingle with others, hence getting infected more frequently, while the unjabbed may be more cautious because they know they’re vulnerable. This rationale is dubious at best, considering:

a)The unvaccinated have continuously been accused of not taking COVID seriously and going about their lives as normal

b)Those who have taken the jab are, by and large, a far more fearful lot; they tend to listen to the “authorities” and take all of their advice to heart, which would include avoiding large gatherings and close one-on-one interactions without wearing a face mask

Check out the following story, reported by Anchorage Daily News:3

“Arianne Bennett recalled her husband, Scott Bennett, saying, ‘But I’m vaxxed. But I’m vaxxed,’ from the Washington hospital bed where he struggled to fight off COVID-19 this winter … Bennett went to get his booster in early December after returning to Washington from a lodge he owned in the Poconos, where he and his wife hunkered down for fall.

Just a few days after his shot, Bennett began experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, meaning he was probably exposed before the extra dose of immunity could kick in. His wife suspects he was infected at a dinner where he and his server were unmasked at times …

‘He was absolutely shocked. He did not expect to be sick. He really thought he was safe,’ Arianne Bennett recalled. ‘And I’m like, ‘But baby, you’ve got to wear the mask all the time. All the time. Up over your nose.'”

Within days of his third dose, he got a serious case of COVID. Yet they blame it on hypothetical exposure to an apparently healthy food server. This kind of irrational reasoning is prevalent among those who got the jabs and who keep going back for more as they are part of the 30% of the population that have been completely brainwashed.

To reiterate what I’ve explained since 2020, asymptomatic spread is likely to be so rare as to be nonexistent.4 It was a lie perpetuated to drive up fear and prop up rising “case” rates that didn’t really exist. It’s basic virology that you cannot transmit a virus unless you have a “hot” infection, and if you have an active, transmissible infection, you have symptoms. The symptoms are a sign that your body’s defenses are kicking in to rid itself of the live virus.

No symptoms, no transmission. So, unless the server was feeling sick and went to work anyway, the simplest explanation for Bennett’s demise was the shot itself. And if the server was sick, the fact that Bennett got so ill suggests the shot is ineffective, even at two doses.

The pro-pharma shills want you to believe there are so many confounding variables, we can’t possibly draw any conclusions from data showing the shots don’t work. Yet looking at data from a wide spectrum of sources, all show the same alarming trends. What “confounding factor” could possibly account for ALL of them being misinterpreted?

An Unproven Hypothesis

Reuters5 does note that Bodner’s simulations “do not prove that this type of bias affected studies of vaccine effectiveness versus the Omicron variant.” What it does show, according to Bodner, is that “even if vaccines work, increased contact among vaccinated persons can lead to the appearance of the vaccine not working.”

In other words, this is a hypothesis that has yet to be proven. Her modeling suggests it COULD make the jabs appear ineffective IF those who got the jab actually behave very differently from the unjabbed.

But again, it’s highly unlikely that the unvaccinated are avoiding exposure by steering clear of close contacts and crowds to a greater degree than those who got the jab. It’s far more reasonable to suspect that the shots don’t work.

On a side note, Bodner’s study was funded by the Canada COVID-19 Immunity Task Force.6 This task force is housed at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and McGill University is a long-term recipient of grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.7,8,9,10

What Do the Data Say About COVID Jab Effectiveness?

Based on data from around the world, it seems clear that the COVID gene transfer injections are not working. In fact, they’re having the opposite effect of what you’d expect from a real vaccine. According to a Washington Post analysis of state and federal data,11 in September 2021, when Delta was most prominent, 23% of those who died from COVID in the U.S. had received the jab.

In January and February 2022, when Omicron started dominating, that percentage jumped to 42%. In December 2021 and January 2022, just under half of all the COVID patients in intensive care at Kaiser Permanente’s hospital system in Northern California had also received one or more shots.12

Many argue that Omicron was more contagious than Delta, hence the higher death toll. But Omicron was also far milder than Delta, so why would the jabbed die at a higher rate from a less lethal variant than a more lethal one?

One attempt at an explanation is that the fatalities are now occurring primarily among the elderly. Nearly two-thirds of those who died from COVID during the Omicron wave were 75 and older. During the Delta wave, 75-year-olds and older accounted for just one-third of the deaths.13

But that was the case from the beginning, and it still doesn’t answer the question: Why would old people be more likely to die from a milder virus than a more serious one? To answer that question, the injection pushers revert back to the argument of waning potency. Two-thirds of those who died in January and February 2022 did not have a booster shot. According to Anchorage Daily News:14

“Experts say the rising number of vaccinated people dying should not cause panic in those who got shots, the vast majority of whom will survive infections. Instead, they say, these deaths serve as a reminder that vaccines are not foolproof and that those in high-risk groups should consider getting boosted and taking extra precautions during surges.”

So, in other words, the jab only works for a handful of months, and then you have to take another. And another. And another. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,15 the first two doses wear off after five months, necessitating a third dose, and the third dose wears off in just four months, at which time you’re supposed to get dose No. 4.

Israeli data16 show the effectiveness of shot No. 4 in preventing severe disease declines by 56% in just seven weeks. So, it appears the protection you get from the shots keeps getting shorter with each dose. Meanwhile, data show the shots can render you increasingly susceptible to all manner of infection and disease, through a wide variety of mechanisms.

Moderna Trial Data Reveal Repeated Infections Are Likely

Among such data is a preprint study17 posted on medRxiv April 19, 2022, which found adult participants in Moderna’s COVID jab trial who got the real injection, and later got a breakthrough infection, did not generate antibodies against the nucleocapsid — a key component of the virus — as frequently as did those in the placebo arm.

Curiously, placebo recipients produced anti-nucleocapsid antibodies twice as often as those who got the Moderna shot, and their anti-nucleocapsid response was larger regardless of the viral load. As a result of this reduced antibody response, those who got the jab may be more prone to repeated COVID infections. As reported by The Defender:18

“[T]he authors found that using the presence of anti-nucleocapsid (anti-N) antibodies to determine whether a person was exposed to SARS-CoV-2 will miss some infections. Thus, the sensitivity of this kind of test, when applied to vaccinated individuals, is not ideal.

However, there are more important implications19,20 of these findings … Specifically, the study implies that the reduced ability of a vaccinated individual to produce antibodies to other portions of the virus may lead to a greater risk of future infections in the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated.

It is important to note that this is not just another argument for the superiority of natural immunity. Rather, this is evidence suggesting that even after a vaccinated person has a breakthrough infection, that individual still does not acquire the same level of protection against subsequent exposures that an unvaccinated person acquires.

This is a troubling finding, and something investigators conducting the Moderna vaccine trial likely knew in 2020.”

UK Data Confirm Results

These findings are corroborated by data from the U.K. Health Security Agency. It publishes weekly COVID-19 vaccine surveillance data, including anti-nucleocapsid antibody levels. The report21 for Week 13, issued March 31, 2022, shows that COVID-jabbed individuals with breakthrough infections have lower levels of these antibodies — a finding they attributed to the protective benefit of the shot:

“These lower anti N responses in individuals with breakthrough infections (post-vaccination) compared to primary infections likely reflect the shorter and milder infections in these patients.”

However, this interpretation is likely flawed, because less severe infection is associated with lower viral load, and as the study above demonstrated, the “vaccinated” have lower anti-nucleocapsid antibody levels than the unvaccinated at all viral load levels, but especially so at the lowest viral loads. As noted by The Defender:22

“This is one of the most significant findings of the study because it overturns the heretofore unchallenged idea that decreased seroconversion in the vaccinated is due to less severe infection in this population — which is a benefit provided by the vaccine.

However, this new study shows that even at low viral loads, the unvaccinated are more likely to seroconvert than those who are vaccinated. In fact, the difference in seroconversion rates is the greatest at lowest viral loads. The decrease in conversion rates is not a result of a benefit from the vaccine. It is a consequence of it.”

Boosted Now Have Three to Four Times Higher Case Rates

The Defender also reviews other U.K. data showing the COVID case rate is three to four times higher among those who have received a booster shot, compared to the unvaccinated. This is true for all age groups with the exception of children under 18:23

“What could explain such a large increase in infection rates among the boosted? Interestingly, the authors … warn that the unvaccinated may have contracted COVID-19 prior to the observation period — in other words, they may have acquired natural immunity previously, giving them added protection …

But their own data tells the opposite story. The boosted are more likely to contract the disease — by a factor of 3 to 4. How do we know whether the larger infection rates in the boosted are due to more robust immunity in the unvaccinated because of prior infection or due to an immune deficiency in the boosted?

The question can be definitively answered by examining the trend of infection rates [using] … the equivalent table from two months earlier. There is still a greater infection rate among the boosted, but it is only two to three times higher. If the authors’ hypothesis was correct, the more recent data should have shown less of a difference, not more.

If anything, their data support the finding that the decreased seroconversion rates in the vaccinated may be causing a greater risk of repeated infections.”

Walgreens’ Data

Data from the pharmacy chain Walgreens in the U.S. also reveal the same trend — COVID-jabbed individuals are testing positive for COVID at higher rates than the unjabbed, and those who got their last shot five months or more ago have the highest risk.

As you can see in the screenshot from Walgreens’ COVID-19 tracker24 below, during the week of May 9 through 15, 2022, 21.4% of unvaccinated individuals who got tested for COVID got a positive result. Of those who had gotten just one COVID shot, the positivity rate was 26.3%.

Of those who received two doses five months or more ago, 31.3% tested positive, and of those who received a third dose five months or more ago, the positive rate was 32.7%. So, after the first booster shot (the third dose), people are at greatest risk of testing positive for COVID.

More Jabs, More COVID Deaths

Perhaps most disturbing of all are the data showing the COVID shots are raising mortality rates, both from COVID and other causes. Above is an animated illustration25 sourced from Our World In Data, first showing the vaccination rates of South America, North America, Europe and Africa, from mid-December 2020 through the third week of April 2022, followed by the cumulative confirmed COVID deaths per million in those countries during that same timeframe.

Africa has had a consistently low vaccination rate throughout, while North America, Europe and South America all have had rapidly rising vaccination rates. Africa has also had a consistently low COVID mortality rate, although a slight rise began around September 2021. Still, it’s nowhere near the COVID death rates of North America, South America and Europe, all of which saw dramatic increases.

Here’s another one,26 also sourced from Our World In Data, first showing the excess death rate in the U.S. (the cumulative number of deaths from all causes compared to projections based on previous years), between January 26, 2020, and January 30, 2022, followed by an illustration of the tandem rise of vaccine doses administered and the excess mortality rate. It clearly shows that as vaccination rates rose, so did excess mortality.

Risk-Benefit Analyses

We also have the benefit of more than one risk-benefit analysis, and all show that, with very few exceptions, the COVID jabs do more harm than good. A risk-benefit analysis27 by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., and independent researcher Kathy Dopp, published in mid-February 2022, concluded that the COVID jab is deadlier than COVID-19 itself for anyone under the age of 80.

Another analysis,28 which relied on data in the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), concluded that in those under age 18, the shots only increase the risk of death from COVID, and there’s no point at which the shot can prevent a single COVID death, no matter how many are vaccinated.

If you’re under 18, you’re a shocking 51 times more likely to die from the jab than you are to die from COVID if not vaccinated. In the 18 to 29 age range, the shot will kill 16 for every person it saves from dying from COVID, and in the 30 to 39 age range, the expected number of vaccine fatalities to prevent a single COVID death is 15. Only when you get into the 60 and older categories do the risks between the jab and COVID infection even out.

A third risk-benefit analysis by researchers in Germany and The Netherlands was published in June 2021, in the journal Vaccines.29 The paper caused such an uproar, part of the editorial board resigned in protest.30 The journal retracted the paper, but after a thorough re-review, it was republished in the August 2021 issue of Science, Public Health Policy and the Law.31

These researchers concluded that, “as we vaccinate 100 000 persons, we might save five lives but risk two to four deaths.”32 A fourth, still preliminary, analysis — based on more than 1,700 death reports collected by Steve Kirsch — shows the shots do more harm than good in anyone under age 60. Kirsch writes:33

“Figure 1 below is an analysis of survey data I collected. The analysis shows that the vaccines are harmful to those under 60. The red dots higher than the error bar means more vaccinated people observed dead than expected based on the population of vaccinated to all people.

In other words, if we vaccinated 60% of people (middle of the grey bar) and 70% (red dot) of the deaths are vaccinated, we have a serious problem. The precautionary principle of medicine suggests if you are under 60 and thinking of taking a vaccine, you shouldn’t. These preliminary results are both statistically significant …

The conclusion is very clear: nobody under 60 years old should get the vaccine because there is no evidence of a benefit. In fact, if you are between 40-60, it’s clear that vaccination makes it more likely you’ll die, not less likely.”

Figure 1. Red dot below error bar = vax works. Red dot above error bar = vax likely causes harm. Red dot inside the error bar = Insufficient evidence to justify taking a new, unproven vaccine. Conclusion: Vaccine shouldn’t be considered unless there is a clear benefit. 60 and older seems to justify use based on the data we have so far. Limitations: we are waiting for others to confirm / challenge the analysis. See text34 for more info. Joel Smalley did the analysis.
While some analyses present a direr picture than others, taken together, it’s clear that there appears to be no long term benefits to the COVID jabs. We’re consistently ending up with a higher cost than can conceivably be considered reasonable. The pro-pharma side will likely continue to lob flimsy excuses at the data, but at some point, the truth will be so clear that even the blind will see it. Until that day, continue to inform yourself and share what you find.
