Wisconsin school district says parents ‘not entitled’ to know child’s sexuality

It’s the end of the world as we know it.

Any parent who delivers their child in the claws of a government school is ….. unfit.

WI school district says parents ‘not entitled’ to know child’s sexuality, pushes ‘heterosexual privilege’ list

District’s push for ‘gender-nonconforming’ accommodations has irked parents and educators

By Timothy H.J. Nerozzi | Fox News March 22, 2022;

A school district in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, has become the center of a parent-teacher firestorm after leaked documents revealed instructors told parents they must “earn” the right to know their children’s sexual identity, and showed the school pushed a “heterosexual privilege” checklist.

The district’s aggressive push for “gender-nonconforming” accommodations has irked parents and educators who say the school’s training and policy changes surrounding the issue have gone too far.

“The actions of the Eau Claire Area School District are not only dangerous to the mental, emotional and physical health of its students, but they also violate the constitutional rights of parents to make choices about their family life and upbringing of their children,” said Ian Prior, senior adviser at America First Legal and creator of the Fight for Schools PAC.

Of particular scorn in the district’s guidance was a slide stating, “Some transgender, non-binary, and/or gender-nonconforming students are not ‘open’ at home for reasons that may include safety concerns or lack of acceptance. School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent/guardian.”

Groups of parents expressed outrage at the notion they had to earn access to their children’s information.

“Remember, parents are not entitled to know their kids’ identities. That knowledge must be earned,” a training slideshow for the Eau Claire School District told school staff.

VIDEO TESTIMONIALS: Dead Within Days — 10 Vaccine Horror Stories

How the COVID Vaccine Altered These People’s Lives


  • Some people who have received COVID-19 shots experience a range of debilitating symptoms or death
  • Healthy teenagers, athletes and doctors are among those who have died within hours or days of receiving COVID-19 shots
  • Others have experienced stroke-like symptoms, paralysis, tics, partial blindness and seizures following the shots
  • Increasing numbers of people are becoming compelled to speak out and share their stories of how COVID-19 shots altered their lives

Despite assurances of safety from health officials, it’s what the long-term effects of COVID-19 shots will be. Spike proteins from the shots can circulate in your body after injection, causing damage to cells, tissues and organs. “Spike protein is a deadly protein,” Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist and trained epidemiologist, said.1

Experimental and observational evidence show that the human immune response to COVID-19 shots is very different than the response induced by exposure to SARS-CoV-2, and people who’ve received COVID-19 shots may have damage to their innate immune system that’s leading to a form of vaccine acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (VAIDS), due to the impairment in interferon signaling.2

Further, likely due to monocyte activation by the spike protein from the vaccine, some people who have received COVID-19 shots experience a range of debilitating symptoms similar to those found in long haul COVID-19 syndrome, such as headaches, fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, joint pain and chest pain.3

For some, however, the shot’s adverse effects occur quickly, resulting in life-changing debilitation. You can see 10 powerful examples below, ranging from deaths to lives upended due to illogical quarantine rules that illustrate the absurdity of COVID-19 tyranny.

These are real people with real stories to share, and the more people who see them, the more awareness can grow to provide those who survived with the help and medical care they deserve — while warning others of the potentially deadly consequences of COVID-19 injections.

If you find these stories helpful and motivating then I would encourage you to visit our breaking news blog on our site as this is where the stories below were initially posted. The blog posts stay up continuously and are not removed after 48 hours.

10 People Whose Lives Changed After COVID-19 Shots

Jim Ashby — Learning to Walk Again

Ashby was forced to get a COVID-19 shot by December 3, 2021, or his employer would consider him “voluntarily resigned.” Eight days after receiving the Pfizer jab, he had a major hemorrhagic stroke.

He’s been in rehab since October 2021, suffering from complete paralysis on the left side of his body. He still has a long way to go in recovery, and still can’t feel or use his left arm or walk without assistance. His rehab is excruciatingly painful, he says, and he spends up to six hours a day learning how to walk again.

What’s worse, his employer isn’t covering the medical bills for the costs of this stroke. “My life has been totally changed, all because of the vaccine mandate … my old life is dead,” he says, “and I have started my new life as a paraplegic.”

Athletes Collapsing and Dying

Healthy athletes around the world are dying of heart attacks and strokes. The numbers are exploding, with athletes suffering neurological problems, too. What’s happened in the last six months to a year that’s different? Is there anything in common that’s changed that hooks all these athletes together? They all have had COVID-19 shots. Among them:

  • Abou Ali, 22-year-old football (soccer) player, who suffered from cardiac arrest in Denmark on September 11, 2021
  • Caddy Alberto Olguin collapsed and died from a heart attack on the golf course on October 9, 2021
  • 30-year-old Venezuelan marathon champion Alexaida Guedez, 30, died of a heart attack during a 5,000-meter race on August 22, 2021
  • Andrea Astolfi, 45, sports director of Calcio Orsago in Italy, died of a heart attack on September 11, 2021 after returning from training
  • Ava Azzopardi, 14, collapsed on a soccer field in the U.S. on October 15, 2021, suffering from cardiac arrest; she had to be put in a medically induced coma to survive

Dr. Neil Singh Dhalla, Died From Myocarditis

Dr. Neil Singh Dhalla fell asleep four days after he got a COVID-19 booster shot — and died from a heart attack. The autopsy stated myocarditis — inflammation of the heart muscle that’s a recognized adverse effect of mRNA COVID-19 shots.4 A CEO of a major health clinic, he was only 48 years old and had never had heart problems in his life.

Faith Ranson, 16-Year-Old Plagued by Convulsions and Tics

A happy, healthy 16-year-old girl in Australia who got the Pfizer COVID-19 shot is now crippled with convulsions, persistent nausea and visible tics. The problems began three days after her second shot and have been ongoing for months. Health officials actually admitted “there is no question Faith has had a delayed reaction to the second Pfizer vaccination” and is suffering adverse reactions from the shot. Her story even made it to mainstream news.

Nurse With COVID Told to Go Back to Work

In this video, a “triple vaxxed” nurse from New York explains how she tested positive for COVID-19, and her employer told her to come back to work even though she hadn’t been in quarantine for five days — against CDC recommendations.

Since she was asymptomatic, she was cleared to go to back to work in a health care setting, but told she still had to quarantine in all other aspects of her life. In short, she can go to work to care for patients while actively positive for COVID-19, but she can’t go to a grocery store or a gas station. Not to mention, her kids were quarantined for 10 days, but she was expected to go back to work in less than five.

Stroke-Like Symptoms in a Healthy Woman

Complaints of neurological problems and stroke-like reactions continue to pile up. Immediately after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 shot, this previously healthy woman experienced headaches and dizziness and blacked out “a few times.”

Within days, she started experiencing numbness to the point that she couldn’t stand up. Eight days later, she’s in the hospital with loss of feeling in her left arm, left leg and face. She states that 19 women were brought in to her hospital ward with the same symptoms over the span of one weekend.

Two Teenage Boys Die From Myocarditis in Their Sleep

Video may not work on all browsers

Epidemiologists have confirmed that two teenage boys from different U.S. states died in their sleep of myocarditis days after getting the Pfizer shot. Both had received second doses of the shot, and McCullough said that in his view, the shots led to the deaths of the teenagers. In a study that examined the autopsy findings, it’s reported that the “myocarditis” described in the boys’ deaths is “not typical myocarditis pathology”:5

“The myocardial injury seen in these post-vaccine hearts is different from typical myocarditis and has an appearance most closely resembling a catecholamine-mediated stress (toxic) cardiomyopathy. Understanding that these instances are different from typical myocarditis and that cytokine storm has a known feedback loop with catecholamines may help guide screening and therapy.”

59-Year-Old Woman Dies Hours After Shot

A 59-year-old front line health care worker in the U.K. took the COVID-19 shot and died a few hours later. In the video, her acquaintance states, “Now I know it’s a given the vaccine’s going to have some casualties — but people are threatened they are going to lose their jobs if they don’t take it … You have the right to take that risk, but you should have the right to refuse it as well — without jeopardizing your job or your freedom of entry or freedom from discrimination.”

Vaccine Advocate Nearly Goes Blind

Video may not work on all browsers

The man in this video describes himself as a believer in “science” and a “vaccine advocate,” but this didn’t spare him from the shot’s adverse effects. Five days after his first Pfizer COVID-19 shot, he started having blurry vision in his left eye. Within three days, he had lost 60% of his vision in that eye.

After several medical examinations, doctors, optometrists and retina specialists diagnosed him with central serous retinopathy (CSR), in which a small vein ruptured, leading fluid to accumulate under the retina, causing retinal detachment and partial blindness.

Other cases of CSR have also been reported following COVID-19 shots, he says, and in a case report published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology it’s stated, “Acute CSR may be temporally associated with mRNA Covid-19 immunization.”6 The man’s doctor told him that the risk of getting additional COVID-19 shots outweighs the potential benefit for him and tried to help him get an official exemption from further shots, but it was denied. He states:

“I have been deprived of my human rights as a citizen … I try to gather all my strength so many times during the past few months to just go and receive my second dose in order to follow the laws.

But the fact that the science says there is an above-average chance that I may lose more of my sight has driven me to anxiety attacks, night terrors and disabling depression … This is a direct violation of my constitutional rights as a citizen and a human being.”

Young Woman Suffers From Seizures, Nearly Dies

Caution: This video contains language that may offend some people

Beginning her story by stressing she is NOT anti-vaccine or pro-conspiracy theory, this young woman describes what happened to her after she received a Moderna COVID-19 shot, which she decided to get so she and her husband could join some friends on a cruise.

The day after the shot she started feeling “weird,” delirious and “disassociated from herself,” she says. Soon after, she blacked out in the bathroom, and when her husband tried to revive her, she began seizing. She had three seizures between the time her husband called 911 and when the ambulance got her to the hospital.

She was intubated and suffered other severe effects, she says. She spent days in the hospital and is now taking anti-seizure medication, while living with ongoing anxiety about her near-death experience, which she believes was caused by the shot. “Go out there and do your research so you can make an informed decision,” she says. “Because you don’t want to put something in your body that could potentially harm you.”

Let Your Voice Be Heard

If you or a loved one has been injured by a COVID-19 shot, I will help you share your testimony. Vaccine mandates have led to injuries, devastation and deaths — while the brainwashing “get your vaccine now” campaign is being used to divide and conquer. One spark is all that is required to start a fire. There is a revolution building — a revolution for freedom to live your life without medical mandates or dictators calling the shots.

Please share your story with us, and encourage others you know who have a story to share theirs. It’s never been more important than now, for you and your family, to take control of your health.

SEC Unveils Sweeping Climate Requirements For Public Companies

The left’s climate hoax wrecking ball is taking down our markets – the financial foundation of this once great nation.

SEC Unveils Sweeping Climate Requirements For Public Companies

By: Thomas Catenacci, Daily Caller, March 21, 2022:

  • The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed rules Monday that would force companies to publicly disclose a wide-range of climate-related information.
  • “I am pleased to support today’s proposal because, if adopted, it would provide investors with consistent, comparable, and decision-useful information for making their investment decisions, and it would provide consistent and clear reporting obligations for issuers,” SEC Chairman Gary Gensler, who President Joe Biden appointed in February 2021, said in a statement.
  • The SEC, the nation’s top financial regulator, would require publicly-traded companies to disclose how “severe weather events and other natural conditions” may impact their business, under the proposed rules, according to an announcement.
  • “Today’s action hijacks the democratic process and disrespects the limited scope of authority that Congress gave to the SEC,” Senate Banking Committee Ranking Member Pat Toomey said in a statement. “This is a thinly-veiled effort to have unelected financial regulators set climate and energy policy for America.”

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed rules that would force companies to publicly disclose a wide-range of climate-related information.

The SEC, the nation’s top financial regulator, would require publicly-traded companies to disclose how “severe weather events and other natural conditions” may impact their business, under the proposed rules, according to the Monday announcement. Companies would also be forced to publish the greenhouse gas emissions produced from their operations.

“I am pleased to support today’s proposal because, if adopted, it would provide investors with consistent, comparable, and decision-useful information for making their investment decisions, and it would provide consistent and clear reporting obligations for issuers,” SEC Chairman Gary Gensler, who President Joe Biden appointed in February 2021, said in a statement.

“Today’s proposal would help issuers more efficiently and effectively disclose these risks and meet investor demand, as many issuers already seek to do,” he said. “Companies and investors alike would benefit from the clear rules of the road proposed in this release.”

In addition, companies would be required to share their transition plans as part of their “climate-related risk management strategy,” the proposal stated.

The commission published a complete list of a dozen requirements companies must comply with under the rule.

“The proposal will undermine the existing regulatory framework that for many decades has undergirded consistent, comparable, and reliable company disclosures,” SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, the agency’s lone Republican, said during a hearing on the proposal held Monday. “We cannot make such fundamental changes to our disclosure regime without harming investors, the economy, and this agency.”……..

35 of Ayn Rand’s Most Insightful Quotes on Rights, Individualism, and Government

Some insightful words from one of the greatest minds of the 20th century.

Alisa Rosenbaum was one of the most controversial writers in America’s history. Why, then, have few people heard of her? Because both people’s plaudits and their intemperate attacks have been aimed at the new name she adopted after leaving Russia for America—Ayn Rand.

Her influence is beyond question. She sold more than 30 million books, and decades after her 1982 death, hundreds of thousands more sell each year. Atlas Shrugged has been ranked behind only the Bible as a book that influenced readers’ lives.

Some are devoted enough that Randian has become a descriptive term. Others use her name only to disparage opponents. Still others disagree with some of her ideas (e.g., while Rand was an often-strident atheist, capitalism is clearly defensible on Christian principles, and most historical defenses of liberty employed Christian rationales which conflict with Rand’s reasoning), yet find a great deal of insight in her analysis of liberty, rights and government.

As we mark the anniversary of Rand’s February 2 birth, consider some of her most insightful words:

  1. “Individual rights are the means of subordinating society to moral law.”
  2. “The recognition of individual rights entails the banishment of physical force from human relationships.”
  3. “The moral justification of capitalism is man’s right to exist for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself.”
  4. “Man—every man—is an end in himself.”
  5. “No man or group may initiate the use of physical force against others.”
  6. “The only proper purpose of a government is to protect man’s rights.”
  7. “A proper government is only a policeman, acting as an agent of man’s self-defense, and, as such, may resort to force only against those who start the use of force…government that initiates the employment of force against men who had forced no one…reverses its only moral purpose.”
  8. “When the framers of the American republic spoke of “the people”…they meant a sum of individuals, each of whom…retains his inviolate guarantee of individual rights.”
  9. “Under a proper social system…a private individual may do anything except that which is legally forbidden; a government official may do nothing except that which is legally permitted…This is the American concept of ‘a government of laws and not of men.’”
  10. “A ‘right’…means freedom from physical compulsion, coercion or interference by other men.”
  11. “Rights impose no obligations on [neighbors] except of a negative kind: to abstain from violating his rights.”
  12. “The right to property…does not mean that others must provide him with property.”
  13. “The right to property…is not a guarantee that a man will earn any property, but only a guarantee that he will own it if he earns it.”
  14. “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible.”
  15. “The collective cannot decide what is to be the purpose of a man’s existence nor prescribe his choice of happiness.”
  16. “Man holds…rights, not from the Collective nor for the Collective, but against the Collective…man’s protection against all other men.”
  17. “Any alleged ‘right’ of one man, which necessitates the violation of the rights of another, is not and cannot be a right.”
  18. “If some men are entitled by right to the products of the work of others, it means that those others are deprived of rights.”
  19. “America’s abundance was created not by public sacrifices to ‘the common good,’ but by the productive genius of free men.”
  20. “Since only an individual man can possess rights…’individual rights’ is a redundancy. But…“collective rights” is a contradiction in terms.”
  21. “Since the only proper function of a government is to protect man’s rights, it cannot claim title to his life in exchange for that protection.”
  22. “An individualist…says: ‘I will not run anyone’s life—nor let anyone run mine. I will not rule nor be ruled. I will not be a master nor a slave.'”
  23. “No one’s rights can be secured by the violation of the rights of others.”
  24. “The doctrine that “human rights” are superior to “property rights” simply means that some human beings have the right to make property out of others.”
  25. “Freedom…comes down to a single question: do you consider it moral to treat men as sacrificial animals and to rule them by physical force?”
  26. “Freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion. It does not mean freedom from the landlord, or freedom from the employer, or freedom from the laws of nature which do not provide men with automatic prosperity.”
  27. “In a capitalist society, all human relationships are voluntary. Men are free to cooperate or not, to deal with one another or not, as their own individual judgments, convictions, and interests dictate.”
  28. “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals.”
  29. “A society that robs an individual of the product of his effort…is…but a mob held together by institutionalized gang-rule.”
  30. “It is the institution of private property that protects and implements the right to disagree.”
  31. “The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
  32. “Individual rights are not subject to a public vote…the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities.”
  33. “What is the basic, the essential, the crucial principle that differentiates freedom from slavery? It is the principle of voluntary action versus physical coercion or compulsion.”
  34. “Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel.”
  35. “We are fast approaching the stage…where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission.”

However much some adore Ayn Rand and others despise her, those who seek wisdom wherever it can be found will find serious food for thought in her words on liberty, rights and government.

When so many promote the cognitive dissonance of pursuing supposed collective or social “justice” by the unjust expedient of violating the rights of individuals who make up society, she can stimulate our thought about foundational questions. And that is crucial, because, as George Mason said, “No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by… frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”

THE REAL PROMISES OF EASTER: A New Earth & A New Jerusalem are Coming!

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” – Revelations 22:13

On Sunday, April 17th, 2022 we will be celebrating Easter. In many countries, like Greece, Easter is a more important event than Christmas because it embodies the rising of Jesus from the dead and fulfills God’s promise of life everlasting to those who believe in His Son.

But Easter promises more than just life everlasting, it promises heaven on earth!

I remember celebrating Easter Sunday on April 14, 1968 while in Vietnam. I was serving as a forward observer with A-Company, 2nd Battalion, 501st Airborne Infantry Brigade of the the 101st Airborne Division. We were still engaged in heavy combat operations due to the North Vietnamese Tet Offensive.

God and soldiers walk hand-in-hand.

I remember after many battles to free the ancient city of Hue my unit finally took the western wall. Our company created its headquarters in a two story home that was on the corner of the Perfume River and the moat which surrounds Hue. Shortly after setting up our headquarters a Vietnamese man and his pregnant wife arrived and docked at the house we were in. Our Vietnamese translator said that the woman was giving birth and needed help to deliver her baby.

I stood there and watched as our medics helped this wonderful new life come into the world. This moment was especially poignant because we had all seen so much death and destruction since February and this birth was both transforming and transformative.

I thought to myself that this new Vietnamese baby boy was God’s way of saying that the world must go on.

I also remember that our brigade chaplain came to our location to conduct a service for those who wished to attend. It too, like the birth of the little boy, was a special, come to Jesus, moment in my life.

Fast forward to 2022 and my passion to write about Easter and what it really promises.

Today, I find that many people seem lost and without a real purpose in life. People don’t really know what to do next and are seeking advice in all the wrong places. Some people will celebrate this Easter Sunday by staying at home, or perhaps with family and friends looking for mythical easter eggs and giving children mythical chocolate easter bunnies. Easter isn’t about bunnies at all. So where did the myth of the Easter bunny come from?

According to History.com,

According to some sources, the Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Their children made nests in which this creature could lay its colored eggs. Eventually, the custom spread across the U.S. and the fabled rabbit’s Easter morning deliveries expanded to include chocolate and other types of candy and gifts, while decorated baskets replaced nests. Additionally, children often left out carrots for the bunny in case he got hungry from all his hopping.

What is Easter Really About?

Easter and the rise of Jesus and his ascent into heaven is really about His second coming.

In his book “Face to Face with Jesus: Seeing Him as He Really Is” Randy Alcorn askes you and I,

Where is Christ? At the right hand of God (Hebrews 12:2). In terms of his human body, Christ is in one location, and only one.

But despite his fixed location at God’s right hand, Jesus is here now, living within us (Galatians 2:20). If he indwells those who are saints and yet sinners now, how much more will he be able to indwell us in the world to come when no sin shall separate us from him?

Mr. Alcorn then states,

On the New Earth, we might regularly hear Jesus speak directly to us in the unhindered two-way conversation, whether we’re hundreds of miles away in another part of the New Jerusalem, thousands of miles away on another part of the New Earth, or thousands of light years away in the new universe.

Mr. Alcorn is talking about the second coming of Jesus. You see if you believe in Jesus it’s just natural and realistic to believe in the second coming where Jesus will bring heaven to us on earth and beyond.

This isn’t science fiction, it’s Biblical truth.

You see not only is the Holy Bible the most read book in the world, it is the most sold and the most stolen book in the world. But why?

The Holy Bible is not only an historical book, it’s also  a deeply profound series of stories, parables, psalms and life lessons in addition to being a wonderful inspirational read.

There’s nothing you may have read yesterday, will read today or tomorrow that’s not told or foretold in the Holy Bible.

Today, in the Ukraine there is a thirst and overwhelming demand for copies of the Holy Bible. Why is this? Because there’s no other choice and no other book that brings one hope and true comfort like the Holy Bible.

The people of the world, like the Ukrainians, are now looking up to God for the answers! His answers. That’s His gift to us just as was His Son who is the truth, the light, the word and the vine. It’s not about us at all, it’s about Him!

Prayer is powerful. Praying can bring about miracles. Praying is comforting in troubling times and when faced with difficult circumstances.

Easter is powerful because of its promise of heaven on earth.

Remember, God and His Son are bigger than any and all of us. They’re our last best hope!

We wish you and your family a blessed Easter 2022. Remember He is the Alpha and Omega.

Believe it.

“If a few people want to control many, how can you get the sheep into the slaughterhouse without them realizing and resisting?

“The perfect thing is invisible enemies, like viruses.17 This ramps up fear so the public believes they need the government to protect them.

Another effective tactic is “divide and conquer,” and the media plays an important role in this, dividing people over shots and masks, for instance.” [Planet Lockdown film]

The WEF was founded on January 1971, 51 years ago, by Klaus Schwab, a German engineer and economist. The WEF (originally called European Management Forum) is based in Geneva (with offices in New York, Beijing and Tokyo); European business leaders are drawn to Davos for the annual meetings each January. (WEForum)

The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), is a global initiative to fight epidemicsthat launched at WEF in Davos on January 19, 2017.

“The internationally funded initiative aims at securing vaccine supplies for global emergencies and pandemics and to research new vaccines for tropical diseases that are now more menacing … funded by private and governmental donors, with an initial investment of US$460m from the governments of Germany, Japan and Norway, plus the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Welcome Trust … [75]

If they want to make us a machine, if they want to make us slaves, we say no.  We don’t need you anymore, we are many … we don’t have to be afraid of any pandemic.”20 [Planet Lockdown  film]

Video 1 (3/1/22) Outside WEF Headquarters in midtown Manhattan. (Did not get this speaker’s name) He warns of gene editing, neurological testing, trans humanism: the great RESET. Mentions Dr. James Giordano. Duel use technology. Nano-tech. The next frontier. Technology as a weapon….

VIDEO 2  (3/1/22) The WEF doesn’t want you to feel pride. Michael Kane, Teachers for Choice addressed the controversy. This is not a war that has ended war. This is the end of the first battle. They are coming after our freedoms. Our sovereignty. Celebrate our victories, but we must be ready to fight more. Peacefully.

.”There’s much talk of a “Great Reset” favored by global capitalists more or less unapologetically admiring of the efficiency of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The day’s headlines demonstrate that what is needed instead is a  “Freedom Reset.. That’s especially so if U.S. States – including Republican-run ones – introduce China’s odious social credit system for surveilling and controlling their people in the guise of digital health cards.”(Frank Gaffney  – CSP)

.” People are being forced into the shots due to mandates and loss of jobs and personal freedoms, like the ability to travel freely and attend business and social events.” [Epoch Times].

Outside New York City Hall, on March 7, I heard 3 speakers (excerpted) addressing the mandates, the jabs and the threat of the WEF techno-digital reset.

Mayor Adams had announced, as coronavirus infections continue to drop statewide, that starting on Monday March 7 New Yorkers will no longer need to show proof of vaccination for indoor activities (like dining) and kids won’t have to wear face masks in school anymore; children in K-12 will no longer have to don face coverings indoors. (For now we had a win)

However, there are complications. Seems individual businesses can decide to enforce their own rules. NOW they can CHOOSE to continue the mandates. But, NEVER were they given the choice to END the mandates.

Part 1 speaker:

2nd speaker:

3rd speaker:

Unfortunately, there were more complications.

 NYC kids under 5 will still have to wear masks in school when the mandate lifts. “Mayor Adams said, “In daycare, in pre-k, in those areas where children are not vaccinated…we have to still take the precautions that’s needed.”[NY Daily News]

SO, NYC will face a lawsuit over the mask mandate for school kids under 5.

These political tyrants should pay attention to the Free State of Florida …

  “The head of Florida’s Department of Health Joseph Lapado, the state’s surgeon general, and a Gov. Ron DeSantis appointee, said Monday during a panel that Florida officially was not recommending children receive any of the approved COVID-19 vaccines. Florida “is going to be the first state to officially recommend against the COVID-19 vaccine for healthy children,” Ladapo said.” [NY Daily News]

The Experts, Science, Medicine––All Amazing, All Fallible By Joan Swirsky [https://www.thepostemail.com/2022/02/26/the-experts-science-medicine-all-amazing-all-fallible/]

”TRUTH has a way of insinuating its way or erupting its way into the public’s consciousness. This is what happened when contradictory or negative data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), from the World Health Organization (WHO), and from “experts” like Dr. Fauci himself were published by courageous media outlets, and frightening information by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) made its way to the larger public.

And what was that frightening information?”


”Airline and military pilots falling ill or dropping dead mid-flight after being vaccinated.

Last year, 400 athletes collapsing unexpectedly with heart problemsthe Covid vaccine being the greatest common denominator.

Attorney Tom Renz made worldwide headlines after disclosing explosive data from the Department of Defense DMED database at Senator Ron Johnson’s Second Opinion Hearing. DMED is the official database of the 1.4-million active-duty DoD servicemen and it showed shocking increases in medical conditions from the mRNA “vaccines” after the military demanded injections for all service members.”

Here are the data:

  • 279% SPIKE in Miscarriages
  • 487% SPIKE in Breast Cancer
  • 1048% SPIKE in the Nervous System
  • 155% SPIKE in Birth Defects
  • 350% SPIKE in Male Infertility
  • 369% SPIKE in Testicular Cancer
  • 2181% SPIKE in Hypertension
  • 664% SPIKE in Malignant Neoplasms
  • 680% SPIKE in Multiple Sclerosis
  • 551% SPIKE in Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • 468% SPIKE in Pulmonary Embolism

  • 452% SPIKE in Migraines
  • 471% SPIKE in Female Infertility
  • 437% SPIKE in Ovarian Dysfunction
  • 269% SPIKE in Myocardial infarction
  • 291% SPIKE in Bell’s palsy
  • 467% SPIKE in Pulmonary Embolism

You are the science, Dr. Fauci? God help us all!”

Is this our future? The Global Great Reset. Annihilate/Destroy to Build Back Better.”

The WEF (the oligarchs of the world economic forum) are still coming after our freedoms. Our sovereignty.

“COVID is the TOOL to bring in the One World Government.”

DHS a No-Show on Afghan Visa Fraud

My commentary today is predicated upon a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release titled, “U.S. Navy Reserves Officer Appeared on Charges of Alleged Bribery and Visa Fraud.”

The statement raises many more questions than it answers — both about the specific case and more broadly about how the Biden DOJ pursues, or refuses to pursue, investigations involving elements of the immigration system.

The effective and accurate screening of aliens who seek to enter the United States is a key responsibility and primary purpose of our immigration system. Indeed, 8 U.S. Code § 1182 enumerates the classes of aliens who are inadmissible because they would pose a threat to public health, public safety, national security, and/or the jobs and wages of American workers.

The issuance of visas is a critical element of the immigration system that is supposed to properly vet aliens and also make certain these aliens are entitled to the categories of visas for which they apply.

The preface of the “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States” report begins with the following paragraph:

It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.

Page 61 of that report contained this passage:

Exploring the Link between Human Smugglers and Terrorists In July 2001, the CIA warned of a possible link between human smugglers and terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that since 1999 human smugglers have facilitated the travel of terrorists associated with more than a dozen extremist groups. With their global reach and connections to fraudulent document vendors and corrupt government officials, human smugglers clearly have the “credentials” necessary to aid terrorist travel.

Furthermore, on May 18, 2004, I testified at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security ad Claims on the topic, “Pushing the Border Out on Alien Smuggling: New Tools And Intelligence Initiatives.”

The title of that hearing was a reference to how an effectively administered visa program can push U.S. borders out to the consulates and embassies where visas are issued, thereby enhancing national security.

Nevertheless, for unfathomable reasons, the Biden administration has inexplicably worked to undermine border security and immigration law enforcement from within the interior of the U.S. during an especially perilous era.

America faces multiple threats posed by adversarial nations that seek the demise of our nation. America is also threatened by many transnational gangs, narcotics trafficking organizations, and terrorist organizations.

Now we come to the DOJ press release that begins with this excerpt:

A Florida man who serves as a Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserves appeared today on criminal charges related to an alleged bribery scheme involving special visas for Afghan nationals.

According to court documents, Jeromy Pittmann, 53, of Pensacola, Florida, currently residing in Naples, Italy, was paid to draft, submit, or falsely verify false letters of recommendation for citizens of Afghanistan who applied to the U.S. Department of State for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs).

There is a limited supply of SIVs each year for Afghan nationals employed as translators for U.S. military personnel. Pittmann is alleged to have signed over 20 false letters in which he represented, among other things, that he had supervised the applicants while they worked as translators in support of the U.S. Army and NATO; that the applicants’ lives were in jeopardy because the Taliban considered them to be traitors; and that he did not think the applicants posed a threat to the national security of the United States. In exchange, Pittmann is alleged to have received thousands of dollars in bribes

Pittmann made his initial appearance today. He is charged with accepting bribes and conspiring to commit visa fraud. If convicted of both counts, he faces up to 20 years in prison. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; U.S. Attorney John J. Farley for the District of New Hampshire; Inspector General John F. Sopko of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR); Special Agent in Charge Eric Maddox of the Economic Crimes Field Office of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS); and Special Agent in Charge Stanley A. Newell of the Transnational Operations Field Office of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) made the announcement.

SIGAR, NCIS, and DCIS are investigating the case.

Let’s begin by noting that the defendant in this case is charged with providing false statements in conjunction with at least 20 applications for visas for aliens who are seeking entry into the U.S. from Afghanistan, a country that has an established nexus with international terrorists groups.

Consider that Biden’s catastrophic policies have created a national security nightmare for America and Americans.

As a rule, such investigations of visa fraud are conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and may also involve agents of the U.S. Department of State.

In this case, however, there is no mention of any ICE agents or State Department agents being involved in the investigation or prosecution. This is significant because in pursuing such investigations, it is of great importance to have agents on board who have expertise in the subject matter to facilitate the investigation or prosecution of violations of the laws involved.

The apparent lack of ICE agents in this case may explain why other criminal charges are not being sought in this case that may well have serious national security implications.

While it is true that the defendant is being charged with accepting a bribe and visa fraud, under the provisions of 18 U.S. Code § 1546 the defendant may face up to 25 years in prison for each of the approximately 20 applications that were filed if the fraud was committed to facilitate terrorism.

This brings us to fact that the press release made no mention as to whether or not any of the aliens actually entered the U.S. or if any were charged with committing fraud or conspiring to commit fraud.

The defendant is alleged to have accepted bribes in exchange for his false statements. However, there is no mention of who provided the money to him. Was an alien smuggling ring involved in this scheme? If so, what is being done to identify all of the participants in such a ring? This sort of investigation is routine for ICE agents but not for those who are involved in this specific case.

I hate to speculate, but given comments made by the DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas indicating he would not pursue most fraud investigations, we cannot ignore the very real possibility that DHS, of which ICE is a component agency, simply refuses to provide assistance in this case or other cases like it.

The Problems with Our Elections Won’t Fix Themselves

Wisconsin state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos admitted there was widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election in a meeting yesterday, but claimed the state legislature does not have the power to decertify the results. “I think there was widespread fraud,” Vos said, “and I think we are going to see more and more data that comes out” as the investigation continues. The investigation in Wisconsin has already found potential illegality in the way elections officials directed private money to boost turnout in Democrat areas.  The investigation also found signs of election fraud in nursing homes.

Meanwhile, lots of things have happened in recent weeks undermining claims the 2020 election was the fairest and most secure ever.  Here is a sampling of stories indicating we still have a long way to go to get our election system back in order:

A citizens group in Georgia found election results in 2020 were electronically manipulated using a cloud computing scheme.   An audit by the Georgia Secretary of State found more than 2,000 noncitizens tried to register to vote.

An Arizona woman pleaded guilty to ballot trafficking in the 2020 primary election.   A Senate study in Arizona found that 200,000 mail ballots with invalid signatures were counted in 2020.  The Arizona Republican Party sued Arizona’s Secretary of State to stop the unconstitutional use of drop boxes and no-excuse mail-in voting.

A Michigan elections official was charged with ballot tampering in the August 2020 primary election. A nursing home employee in Michigan was sent to jail for forging signatures of mentally disabled residents on absentee ballot applications.   A lawsuit accuses Michigan’s Secretary of State of illegally using private money to increase Democrat turnout in the 2020 election.

A citizens group in Tennessee found chain of custody and other problems, and say elections officials are ignoring their complaints.

A state court ruled mail-in voting in Pennsylvania is unconstitutional because it was instituted by statute instead of an amendment to the state’s constitution.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court reinstated mail-in voting temporarily, pending further litigation.

A suit in Delaware alleges a statute allowing early voting violates the state’s constitution.

North Carolina removed 430,000 inactive voters from the rolls to settle a lawsuit.  Out-of-date voter rolls are an issue all across the country, with elections officials resisting efforts to clean them up.

That’s enough for now, but know there are further reports around the country of foreigners hacking into state election systems, illegal ballot harvesting, illegal drop boxes, double-scanning of ballots, voter ID requirements being ignored, and more nursing home fraud, among other things.

What do Democrats do in the face of all these problems?  They resist doing anything about them, like it was a religion or something.  Illinois broke federal law by refusing to give a voter integrity group access to the state’s voter rolls, a federal court ruled.  National Democrats are going after 111 Republican lawyers in 26 states who challenged various aspects of the 2020 election, despite the fact many challenges were successful.  Meanwhile, the January 6th Committee is targeting Republican who have donated money to election integrity efforts.

Given this odd behavior, you’d think Democrats are trying to steal elections and intimidate anybody who tries to stop them. And you’d be right. So now is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of their country.  Let’s get these problems cleaned up, so we can get back to free and fair elections and have confidence in our election system once more.

THEY KNEW: In Pfizer trials, more people died in the vaccine group than in the placebo group

They knew.

The murdering bastards knew. But they kept effective COVID treatments, like Ivermectin, from the sick and the dying!

Steve Kirsch Breaks Down the Math Showing the Upside Down Risk/Benefit Analysis of the Vaccine [VIDEO]

By Red Voice Media, March 8, 2022

In the Pfizer trials, more people died in the vaccine group than in the placebo group, and it takes 22,000 vaccines to save one life from COVID.

Steve Kirsch: “So you killed 150,000 in order to maybe save 10,000 lives.”

Average Gas Prices Hit $4 Per Gallon For First Time In Over Decade, Approach Record High

President Biden continues to attack America’s fossil fuel industry, resulting in near record gas prices for the American people. That is because Biden takes his orders from the green zealots like John Kerry. Joe Biden is the most incompetent POTUS of our lifetime. Maybe ever. #Trump2024!

Average Gas Prices Hit $4 Per Gallon For First Time In Over Decade, Approach Record High

By Daily Wire, March 6, 2022

The national average price for gas has jumped to $4 per gallon for the first time since 2008 as prices continue to worsen during Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration.

“As of Sunday afternoon, the national average of a regular gallon of gas was $4.009, according to AAA,” USA Today reported. “That’s up 8 cents from Saturday and up 40 cents from last week. The U.S. hit the $4 national average a day earlier than analysts expected.”

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at fuel-savings app GasBuddy, said in a tweet on Sunday that gas prices were approaching an all-time high.

“We are currently at a 7 day rise in #gasprices of 43.7c/gal,” he tweeted. “If we surpass 49.0c/gal ago, we will be at the highest ever 7 day rise in average price.”

GasBuddy said in a statement:

The national average price of gasoline has just surpassed $4 per gallon in the U.S. for the first time since 2008, and stands just 10 cents below the all-time record of $4.103 per gallon, according to GasBuddy, the leading fuel savings platform providing American drivers with the most ways to save money on gas. Prices have spiked across the country due to the Russian war on Ukraine as sanctions cripple Russia’s ability to export crude oil, spiking gas prices by nearly 41 cents in the last seven days alone.

As of Friday, the weekly rise in gas prices was the second largest ever, following the rise of 49 cents per gallon during the week of September 3, 2005. Yesterday’s daily rise of 15.8 cents per gallon was also the second largest daily rise ever, coming close to the record of 18.1 cents per gallon set as Hurricane Katrina tore through the Gulf 17 years ago. Diesel prices, however, didn’t share the same fate as gasoline, as diesel soared to its largest daily gain ever: 22.2 cents per gallon, 6 cents higher than the previous record from 2013.

GasBuddy expects that gasoline prices will continue to rise in the days ahead, and could be just days away from setting a new all-time record high and continuing to rise through summer. Seasonal factors including increased demand for gas, refinery maintenance and the switch to summer blend gas, on top of current geopolitical tensions, could propel prices upward of $4.25 per gallon by Memorial Day.

Military Medical Evisceration of America’s Finest

“This country has not seen and probably will never know the true level of sacrifice of our veterans”. As a civilian, I owe an unpayable debt to all our military. Going forward let’s not send our servicemen and women off to war or conflict zones unless it is overwhelmingly justifiable and on moral high ground.” – Thomas M. Smith

“Urge all of your men to pray, not alone in church, but everywhere. Pray when driving. Pray when fighting. Pray alone. Pray with others. Pray by night and pray by day. Pray for the cessation of immoderate rains, for good weather for Battle. Pray for the defeat of our wicked enemy whose banner is injustice and who’s good is oppression. Pray for victory. Pray for our Army, and Pray for Peace. We must march together, all out for God.” – George S. Patton

“If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn’t plan your mission properly.” –  David Hackworth

“There is a great deal of talk about loyalty from the bottom to the top. Loyalty from the top down is even more necessary and much less prevalent. One of the most frequently noted characteristics of great men who have remained great is loyalty to their subordinates.” – George S. Patton

Biden’s appointed Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, sent a formal request for information to major tech companies demanding data on “misinformation” related to the COVID-19 vaccine and the virus itself.  Vivek demanded the companies provide data on “exactly how many users saw or may have been exposed to instances of Covid-19 misinformation,” as well as the particular demographics most affected by misleading information. Murthy also reportedly demanded data on the sources of COVID-19 misinformation, particularly related to discredited treatments for the virus.

Discredited by those who made beaucoup bucks on the C-19 jabs…we know who they are.

Truthful information on C-19 early treatments and the killer jabs are censored. Dissident physicians, scientists and nurses, along with authors, journalists and American citizens are now considered domestic terrorists for freely speaking/writing the truth.

Meanwhile, the federal government appropriated $1 billion of our tax dollars to pay hundreds of media companies to advertise the dangerous COVID inoculations, now on their fourth jab, and to promote positive coverage of same.  The Biden administration purchased ads on TV, radio, in print, and on social media to build vaccine confidence, timing this effort with the increasing availability of the vaccines. So-called conservative media, Fox and Newsmax, also took the money and said nothing to their viewers.

Emerald Robinson wrote, “That is the largest and most comprehensive breach of journalistic ethics that has ever occurred. Almost everybody took the money. Almost everybody lied about the vaccines (knowingly or unknowingly). Almost everybody refused to report anything negative about the vaccines — because they were paid to close their eyes. Almost everybody is implicated.”

The results of this “Operation Warp Speed” jab are terrifying!  Humanity has become one giant petri dish for Big Pharma.

Americans as Guinea Pigs

The American government has never thought of their citizens as anything more than the unwashed masses of people available for their never-ending experiments. Our fighting forces are even more exploited as they are conscripted to the government for their years of service.

The ten-part series, American Citizens as Guinea Pigs, was written in 2010 and 2011.  Part Five discusses the many experiments on our soldiers. Unfortunately, Part One of the series is missing the rest of the series’ links at the bottom of the page, but you can access all of the series here.

WWI gave us mustard gas, WWII gave us plutonium experiments and atomic bomb tests, Vietnam gave us agent orange, and Desert Storm gave us depleted uranium.  For over a century, too many deadly experiments have been performed on America’s finest, far more than the few I’ve mentioned.

Now they face tragic results or death from the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of an experimental inoculation they call a “vaccine,” which destroys the immune system resulting in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and the word is spreading.  Link

One-Third of Soldiers Refuse Vax

More than two-thirds of U.S. service members have opted to receive the COVID-19 jab, but the high rate of troops turning it down has lawmakers voicing grave concerns.  Thank the Lord one-third of them have had the sense to opt out of this deadly injection.

Speaking before the House Armed Services Committee in mid-February, Defense officials, including Air Force Maj. Gens. Jeff Taliaferro, vice director for operations on the Joint Chiefs, and Steven Nordhaus, director of operations with the National Guard Bureau, said the vaccine acceptance rate for troops is, on average, between 66% and 70%.

Navy SEALS who have refused the jab have been denied deployment after all the rigorous and expensive training they’ve gone through to protect our country, but worse than that, an unvaxxed SEAL with traumatic brain injury was denied permission to travel to a treatment center even after he had offered to pay for expenses himself.

Human Events reports, “It is reprehensible that the Navy would deny health care to a Navy SEAL suffering the effects of traumatic brain injury,” Mike Berry, general counsel for First Liberty Institute, said in a statement.

“Despite the Court’s clear order prohibiting this kind of vindictive abuse, the Navy continues to punish and harass these warriors,” he added. “The Navy continues to deny our clients training and deployment opportunities and is assigning these soldiers menial tasks instead of allowing them to defend our country. This religious discrimination must stop.”

Meanwhile, SEALs are also being denied opportunities for training and deployment.

Revenge Against Marines Who Say, “NO”

Admiral David D. Porter, who died in 1891, said, “A ship without Marines is like a garment without buttons.”  There will be plenty of Marines missing from ships and combat in the future.  Marines who were smart enough to claim religious exemptions from this experimental COVID vax and those who learned of the dangers from their families, friends and physicians/scientists resisted the “warp speed” jab for a virus whose recovery is 99.8% for healthy people under age 70.

And just what happens to Marines who turn down this experimental jab?  Following is a personal story a young Marine told his grandmother; she sent the following to me:

I thought you might be interested in this story.

Our grandson, who joined the Marines the day he turned 18 and whose only goal was to be a Marine, made it home from the Marines (a goal he’d been working on and hoping for since he had refused the clot shot) this week!  He did get to come home for the holidays and was expecting to be discharged within a few weeks – definitely before February.  But the Marines were in revenge mode.

They had “special ” discharge protocols for those getting out because they wouldn’t take the shot. And, also, “special” treatment during the time he waited for the discharge.   He realized it was a mind game that he had to endure.

He had to give back his uniforms (that he had purchased).  He gave belts, shoes, etc. to Marines who could use them.  When he handed in the uniforms, he found out they meant he had to hand in “everything,” (remember – he had purchased them).  So, they charged him and withdrew over $1700 from his account to pay them back for the items he’d given away. 

Much earlier they had told him he would not get any of his 401K – not even what he put in. And, because he was in a hurry to save money, he’d been putting in a lot of every check. (Perhaps this was just a threat to make him change his mind, I don’t know how that stands as of now.)

He was made to do nothing but clean toilets for a long time. The last two days, he was made to sit in a Sgt. office but was allowed to eat and go to the toilet. (He didn’t realize how much worse it could have been because he knew nothing about the Jan 6th prisoners.)

He roomed with a “vaccinated” Marine who got Covid and was very sick for almost a week but he never got the least bit sick.  He did ask superiors how they could explain that. 

He did finally get out in March with a “General” discharge and he hopes to get it revised to “Honorable” because his record was impeccable. 

And, he learned some valuable lessons – #1 you may not be rewarded for good behavior and #2, you may be punished for doing what’s right. 

So, the military IS being weakened (physically with the shot) and thinned out with (noncompliant).  Those who would not comply are being discharged, those who intended to re-up did not and some who planned to join have not.

Oh, and he didn’t get his last two pay checks.  It’s anyone’s guess if he’ll get them; he does not expect them.

This miscarriage of justice will unfortunately stand because our military is run by the likes of the Chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, a man who would rather consort with his communist Chinese counterparts than obey his Commander in Chief.  I consider him a traitor and everyone else who is demanding these deadly injections be taken by our fighting forces, and that includes the illegitimate President Joseph Biden.

Military Vax Mandates

In January of 1991, a lawsuit against the military by a soldier and his wife, who argued that the unapproved drugs could not be legally administered without the prior “informed consent” of the military personnel, was shot down by US District Judge Stanley Harris.

The FDA had not approved some of the drugs which included formulas designed to counteract the effects of nerve agents and a vaccine to prevent bacterial poisoning during biological warfare.

In rejecting a motion for a preliminary injunction, U.S. District Judge Stanley Harris said, “The court declines to second-guess the Defense Department’s decisions regarding how to equip and prepare the armed forces for the war with Iraq.” (President George H.W. Bush oversaw the Persian Gulf War.)

A Pentagon official said, “We are obviously pleased by the outcome. We believe the request made of the FDA and its subsequent approval of our request was both medically and legally defensible. It appears that the legal process has found that to be the case as well.”

Now the COVID-19 “vaccines” are being forced on the military by the White House, saying they could opt out with religious and medical exemptions.  However, exemption requests have rarely been honored.  The Military’s COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate states that servicemembers previously infected with C-19 are not considered “fully vaccinated” despite natural immunity being much stronger than vax immunity.  Yes, they want every soldier jabbed with this poison.

Cellular DNA and DMED Proof

A new study is out: Intracellular Reverse Transcription of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 In Vitro in Human Liver Cell Line.  What it is saying is: lab studies show that mRNA vaccine DOES integrate itself into human cellular DNA. This means that a shot of the Pfizer vaccine, taken even once, permanently changes the DNA of affected cells.  Read the abstract here.  A follow-up article showed that the changes occurred in the liver and caused a huge uptick in cancers.

Attorney Thomas Renz shocked listeners when he told Senator Ron Johnson what was really happening.  Mr. Renz stated, “In the 9/28/2021, Project Salus Weekly Report, Project Salus is a Defense Department Initiative where they report and they take all this data that doesn’t exist, supposedly, and they give it to the CDC. They’re watching these vaccines. On that date, and around that date, I have numerous instances where Fauci and that entire crew were saying, “It’s a crisis of the unvaxxed; it’s 99% unvaxxed in the hospital.”

In Project Salus, in the weekly report, the DOD document, says specifically, 71% of new cases are in the fully vaxxed and 60% of hospitalizations are in fully vaxxed. This is corruption at the highest level. We need investigations; the Secretary of Defense needs to be investigated; the CDC needs to be investigated…”  Here is the power point from Dr. Dreddy proving what Attorney Renz has stated.

In the letter Senator Ron Johnson wrote to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, he stated:

Based on data from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), Renz reported that these whistleblowers found a significant increase in registered diagnoses on DMED for miscarriages, cancer, and many other medical conditions in 2021 compared to a five-year average from 2016-2020.   For example, at the roundtable Renz stated that registered diagnoses for neurological issues increased 10 times from a five-year average of 82,000 to 863,000 in 2021.   There were also increases in registered diagnoses in 2021 for the following medical conditions.

Renz also informed me that some DMED data showing registered diagnoses of myocarditis had been removed from the database.   Following the allegation that DMED data had been doctored, I immediately wrote to you on January 24 requesting that you preserve all records referring, relating, or reported to DMED.   I have yet to hear whether you have complied with this request.

Military Evisceration

In a lawsuit filed in United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, attorneys for America’s Frontline Doctors et al v. the United States et al, a supplement to the plaintiff’s brief shows data from the Defense Medical Surveillance System (DMSS) Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED) DoD Data – January 2022 with documented increases in diseases and injuries after receiving the COVID-19 injections. Link

The File reveals that prior to the commencement of vaccination within the DOD with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, the incidence of certain diseases and medical conditions among DOD personnel was predictable and constant at a certain level over a number of years from 2016 to 2020; however, after the commencement of vaccination within the DOD with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines in 2021, the incidence of these diseases and medical conditions among DOD personnel spiked dramatically.

As the months pass, the percentages of diseases and injuries are rising exponentially.


Our military has lost one-third of our fighting force because they’ve refused the jab.

Some who have received the injections can no longer function in the military, others may have negative effects down the road, but one thing remains clear, our soldiers are being experimented on, injured and sometimes killed by injections that long ago should have been pulled in disgrace from the market for all humanity.

Post Script: Dr. Lee Merritt, 10 years as Navy orthopedic surgeon says, “Soldiers who have not taken the COVID jab need to stay ready.  They may be called to defend our nation.”

Defeat Tyrants With Energy Independence

UPDATE: Candidate for the U.S. Senate Carla Sands, “Make America Energy Dominant Again.” Former U.S. Ambassador and current Pennsylvania candidate in Pennsylvania Carla Sands calls for strong America first leaders to rise up and take back the country from the radical left.

They said it couldn’t be done.  Then we did it.

Energy independence!

Then Biden yanked away what generations had worked for in the blink of an eye.

Put that together with Biden’s provocative weakness in Afghanistan and now Ukrainians are paying the price in blood.  Will Taiwan be next?  Then who?

I addressed these issues and more in a talk I gave in Virginia.

“Efforts to go net zero have diminished the ability of nations to provide sufficient energy to meet demand,” I explained, “and this gives tyrants like Vladimir Putin an opportunity to provide that energy in the form of natural gas and rake in millions to fund his war machine.”

If you watched President Biden’s State of the Union Address you received no sign that Biden will wake up and value American energy independence above catering to his left-wing base.

Marc Morano took Biden to task on Fox and Friends explaining.  “Russian oil imports are at an 11 year high. We’re importing 600,000 barrels a day from Russia. And Russia’s federal budget is 40% based upon oil and gas revenue.”

Environmentalist Michael Shellenberger was very clear.  We shared his tweet with CFACT’s Facebook friends.   “Russia produces 3X more gas than Europe produces.  Why?  Because climate activists, partly funded by Russia, blocked fracking.”

It’s not just hydrocarbons.  Wind and solar, as inefficient and intermittent as they may be, are WHOLLY DEPENDENT on rare earth elements and manufacturing from China and metals from Russia!

This is no accident.   China and Russia played the useful idiot Left like a drum, stifled domestic mining, drilling and manufacturing and got us hooked on supplies from the worst nations on Earth.

Anyone who thinks importing resources from China and Russia instead of producing them at home, and that by doing this it will somehow lower the temperature of the globe, is too clueless to lead.

Energy independence now!  We must settle for nothing less.

VIDEO: First, Psychological Warfare. Next, Financial Warfare


  • In an interview with Joe Rogan, Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamist revolutionary who became an anti-extremism activist, discusses the manufacturing of consent around things that aren’t true
  • Nawaz believes we’re in a hybrid war where information is the primary weapon
  • Relativism, the idea that truth is relative and personally subjective, is dangerous because without objective truth, there’s no objective reality, and without objective reality, whoever has the power gets to dictate reality. In the end, you end up with authoritarianism
  • The reason why government leaders have repeatedly shifted the goal post and then played with our memories of what they promised is to disorient and confuse people to the point that they don’t have the strength to question government
  • Another control mechanism will be the implementation of programmable central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) — digital cash that can be programmed so that it can only be spent on goods or services that an employer or government agrees with or deems sensible

In the video above, podcaster Joe Rogan interviews Maajid Nawaz, author of “Radical,” a former Islamist revolutionary who eventually became an anti-extremism activist. This is another three-hour-long interview. If you want, you can skip the first hour as it gets more applicable to current day issues after the first hour.

Nawaz’s past experience with recruiting extremists to infiltrate and overthrow Western governments helped him to more clearly recognize the psychological mind games waged against the civilian public during the COVID pandemic. He’s basically spent much of his later life opposing “the manufacturing of consent around something that isn’t true.”

According to Nawaz, we’re in a “hybrid war.” It’s basically an information war, because the primary weapon is information, and whoever gets to define reality with their narrative wins.

He explains how, when recruiting extremists for your cause, you first have to dismantle and destroy their current view of the world. After that, you can then indoctrinate them with your view of the world.

Big Tech obviously plays a crucial role in this war, as they have the technology and the algorithms to influence, manipulate and mold people’s minds by deciding what narratives they’re allowed to see. Social media platforms can easily make it appear as though a minority, fringe position is actually backed by a majority.

Ironically, as Rogan points out, the people who are being brainwashed are in many cases fiercely defending the right of these companies to mold and manipulate them. They support the censorship, they support cancel culture, seemingly not understanding the impact it’s having on their view and understanding of reality and the world at large.

Power Grabs Through ‘Emergency Powers’

One answer to how we got to where we are today is that governments have invoked emergency powers, and those emergency powers often end up becoming permanent. That’s why they were invoked in the first place.

As explained by Nawaz, “emergencies are always used by the state for power grabs.” Once they’ve been able to expand a power under the banner of a national emergency, they keep it. They don’t roll it back. So, when, in 2020, the COVID pandemic was used to suspend human rights, Nawaz knew we were on a slippery slope.

And, as he feared, we’re now experiencing a very radical shift in our social contract with the state. Before the pandemic, the social contract, the generally accepted modus operandi, was that everyone has the right to bodily autonomy. While it’s good to donate blood, for example, you are not required to do so — even if someone’s life hangs in the balance.

No one can demand that you donate a kidney because you have two functioning kidneys and someone else needs one. You have the right to keep both of your kidneys, even if it means the other person dies for lack of organ donation.

Also, if someone is vulnerable to illness due to preexisting conditions, that person has always been expected to take their own precautions. If you have a peanut allergy, you make sure you don’t eat anything with peanuts, for example, and others are encouraged, but not mandated or required, to make accommodations for and be considerate of those who are vulnerable.

What we have never done, Nawaz notes, is make other people responsible for our comorbidities and preexisting conditions and force them to submit to a medical intervention that could harm or kill them in order to improve our chances of survival.

A Radical Shift in Our Social Contract

If the state is going to tell us that we must get vaccinated because it is our duty to protect other people, then that is a very deep and radical shift of our social contract.

So much so, Nawaz argues, that it should require serious public dialogue followed by a democratic mandate. But that’s not happening. We’re now told that we must surrender our bodily autonomy for the common good. If you disagree, you’re simply canceled and eliminated from the public forum.

While not specifically discussed in this interview, this new social contract, sprung on us during the COVID crisis, is actually part and parcel of The Great Reset.1 The surrendering of individual rights — some for now, but eventually all of them — is the “new social contract” that Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum has envisioned and is pushing out to the world through his installed leaders.

As noted by Nawaz, at the end of the day, it comes down to what kind of society, what kind of world, we want to live in, and “We can’t go from democracy to a ‘papers please’ society … without having any consultation with the public on this,” he says. We need to have a “proper conversation about how this will permanently change the structure of our society.”

The fundamental problem here is that we’re told we must simply trust that the government knows what’s best and always acts in our best interest. Yet we know the state can get things very wrong indeed. In the interview, Nawaz recounts many examples where governments lied and acted against the best interest of their people.

The same goes for Big Pharma. We’re told to trust their products, their science and that they’re working to protect our health, always. Yet for those of us who know the criminal history of some of these drug companies, that’s a tall order.

As noted by Nawaz, the largest criminal fine in history was levied against Pfizer. They have a very long rap sheet, yet we’re to take their experimental gene transfer product on faith alone. Moreover, we’re told to ignore all the data that suggests Pfizer is not, in fact, being entirely honest about the benefits and risks of their product.

When There’s No Truth, Power Gets to Define Reality

One of the primary ways debate is shut down is by throwing labels at people. It doesn’t matter whether they’re factually correct or not. Nawaz has been called an “anti-vaxxer” for questioning vaccine mandates, yet he’s double jabbed. He’s been called an “anti-Muslim extremist,” despite spending four years in prison for his Muslim extremism.

“But there’s a deeper point here,” Nawaz says. For many years, we’ve been shifting into relativism, this idea that truth is relative, that it’s subjective and based on your personal experience. Your truth doesn’t have to be what my truth is. You decide what your truth is and there’s no such thing as “reality.”

This, Nawaz argues, has had devastating consequences because without objective truth, there’s no objective reality, and without objective reality, whomever has the power gets to dictate what reality is — because you have no way to determine whether that power is telling the truth or not. In the end, you end up with authoritarianism.

“When you promote the idea that there is no such thing as truth, and when you shut down debate that is seeking truth — not that it claims truth but it’s seeking it — in aid of this idea that truth is relative … what happens when you do that?

When there’s no such thing as truth, you can’t define reality. And when you can’t define reality, the only thing that matters is power … because power gets to define reality,” he says. “Power steps into that void when reason no longer exists, and defines reality for you, from up above.”

Psychological Warfare

You can see then, how and why information is the most powerful weapon in this fight for power. As noted by Nawaz, most people work full-time jobs and have families and simply don’t have the time to do the research required to discern the truth.

Instead, they turn to trusted voices in the media to give them their best interpretation of what the truth and reality is. The problem we now have is that the media are peddling the narratives of those trying to get more power. And without truthful information, it becomes difficult to define reality, which makes it difficult to challenge government.

This is also why leaders have repeatedly shifted the goal post and then played with our memories of what they promised. The goal is to disorient and confuse people to the point that they don’t have the strength to question their government. This is psychological warfare.

The harsh reality that everyone must face now is that once rights have been taken from you, government never voluntarily gives them back. The only option people have is to TAKE their rights back through peaceful activism.

Coming Next: Financial Warfare

Nawaz and Rogan also discuss how the global cabal is planning to control the world population through the use of programmable central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

Programmable currency is digital cash that can be programmed such that it can only be spent on certain goods or services that an employer or government deem sensible.2 In other words, the issuer of the money can control how the recipient spends it. With that, the issuer would have near-total control over your behavior.

As noted by Nawaz, with a programmable CBDC, government would have complete control over anyone who disagrees with their policies or activities. If someone expresses dissent, the government could simply restrict how they can use their money, or shut down their bank account altogether.

For example, if the government didn’t want Nawaz to appear on Rogan’s show, they could simply reprogram his CBDCs with the click of a button, such that he would not be allowed to purchase a plane ticket.

What the globalists are now fighting to implement is a platform that will give them complete control over people — something that will tie everything in your life together in one central spot, such as your employment records, medical records, financial records and more.

This is why they’re fighting so hard for vaccine passports, even though it’s clear that they are completely irrational. What good is a vaccine passport when the “vaccine” doesn’t prevent infection or spread?

Some nations are now scrapping the vaccine passports and shifting to digital IDs instead. It’s important to realize that digital IDs serve the same exact purpose as the vaccine passport, so the fight for freedom is far from over, even if your government has publicly said no to vaccine passports. As explained by Nawaz, we’re also seeing evidence of a digital credit score being set into place.

Global Leadership Has Been Infiltrated

Nawaz also discusses how governments around the world have been infiltrated by World Economic Forum (WEF) members whose agenda it is to implement global authoritarianism, using the psychological, information war techniques summarized above.

As noted by Nawaz, Schwab has worked on “embedding people in government who are subscribed to The Great Reset agenda,” and in his 2020 book, “COVID-19: The Great Reset,” Schwab openly argues that the COVID-19 response should be used to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”

The WEF has also clearly articulated3 its interest in developing a global digital ID system. So, what we can look forward to is a never-ending process where the goal post keeps moving toward more and more authoritarianism. And they’ve told us this, openly, Nawaz says. All we need to do is believe them.

Due to the vast scope of this interview, I really encourage you to listen to it in its entirety. If you don’t have much time then just skip the first hour.

The new Jacobins are fighting a no-holds-barred battle for the heart of America

A new public orthodoxy is being imposed upon the United States.

What are we to make of “cancel culture” and what Mary Eberstadt has dubbed the “new intolerance”? One of the most astute analyses was offered by Megan McCardle several years ago in The Washington Post. Societies, McCardle wrote, do have “orthodoxies,” beliefs that they place “beyond debate” — “sacred dogmas”— enforced through a variety of social, economic, and even legal sanctions.

Normally, public orthodoxies are largely “self-enforcing” and navigating them is “effortless,” but orthodoxies can and do change over time. In the 1950s, for example, a “youthful … flirtation with communism could be career-ending.” The “messiness” and confusion surrounding cancel culture is explained by the fact that we are at a “liminal moment between the eradication of an existing orthodoxy and the establishment of a new one.”

While this strikes me as largely on target, I think that it misses something important about the present situation. Specifically, it exaggerates the normality of what we are experiencing.

A violent rupture with America’s past

Yes, societies have orthodoxies, and yes, these orthodoxies change over time, but normally significant changes in a society’s orthodoxy occur incrementally. One thinks here of the gradual transition in our self-understanding from thinking of America as a Protestant society for most of our history to thinking of it as a Judeo-Christian society in the 1940s and 1950s. One also thinks of evolution of thinking on the subject of race between the Reconstruction era and the Civil Right Act of 1964.

The transition from “Protestant America” to “Judeo-Christian America,” moreover, merely marked a transition from one version of Biblical theism to a broader version of Biblical theism that encompassed Catholicism and Judaism as well. Likewise, the transition in our thinking of race between 1865 and 1964 consisted in a more faithful application in practice of principles we had traditionally professed (if not practiced). In Martin Luther King’s language, it represented a long-overdue payment on a promissory note. Neither represented a wholesale rupture with the past.

What we are experiencing today is something different.

To begin with, it represents not a development in our previous self-understanding, but a rupture with it. Most obviously, this finds expression in things like the 1619 Project with its transvaluation of values — with its wholesale rejection of America, its history, its founders, and its attempt to reframe our national story as one of tyranny and oppression. The founders and even Lincoln are seen not as heroes to be celebrated but villains whose works and very persons are to be condemned as fundamentally evil.

A rejection of all of Western tradition

The new orthodoxy, however, doesn’t stop there. It continues on to a wholesale rejection of the Western civilizational heritage — the heritage bequeathed to us, as Russell Kirk remarks, by five cities: Athens, Jerusalem, Rome, London, and Philadelphia. As Ellis Sandoz has shown, the American experiment in self-government and ordered liberty drew upon “the whole amplitude of Western civilization and is not intelligible apart from a generous recognition of this fact.” It thus included classical, Biblical, and modern elements.

Yet, if America was shaped in part by the Enlightenment, it was by the conservative form which the Enlightenment had taken in the English-speaking world, a form that was neither anti-religious nor morally nihilistic. Indeed, the conservative character of the American Enlightenment received signal expression in the latter’s commitment to “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God,” a commitment to the idea that reason can discern a body of substantive moral truths embedded in the structure of reality, combined with an insistence that these truths were broadly consistent with the principles of Christian morality.

Today we are witnessing today is a wholesale assault on the Western civilizational tradition, in particular, a rejection and condemnation of the classical and Christian heritages —and even the more sober and moderate expressions of the Enlightenment — in favour of various currents of radical modernity (the radical Enlightenment, Rousseau, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Marcuse, Foucault, deconstructionism, postmodernism, etc., etc.).

A new religion of Autonomous Man

Over and against the religious heritage of the West, today’s emergent orthodoxy champions a thoroughgoing naturalism and a Promethean ethic of human autonomy, a new religion of the Autonomous Man. Indeed, as Sandoz notes, “the chief object of [its] rejection, repudiation and annihilation is the God and morality of Christianity.”

Likewise, over and against the metaphysical and moral realism of the Western tradition, today’s emergent orthodoxy rejects the idea of a knowable human nature with natural needs and tendencies and an objective moral order accessible to the human mind insisting instead that, in Francis Canavan’s words, “truth is only what the individual thinks is true, [and] good is only what the individual personally prefers.”

Viewing human beings as sovereign wills existing in a godless and meaningless universe, unbound by ends they have not chosen, and free to make of themselves and the world whatever they choose, it embraces what can only be described as moral and cultural nihilism. The project of human emancipation demands the rejection of all that restricts human self-creation: unchosen social ties and obligations, the very idea of an objective moral order, the assertion of an objective truth to which the mind must assent, and even reality itself.

The enemies of the new orthodoxy

From the perspective of the new orthodoxy, the America, the West, and all their works are evil and the project of human emancipation demands their replacement by something radically different. Furthermore, the new orthodoxy seeks to destroy not only the intellectual, spiritual and moral legacy of the West, but the structures (both social and political) in which this legacy has found institutional expression.

At the social level, this finds its most vivid expression in the assault on the family as it has been traditionally understood (that finds expression in things like no-fault divorce, same-sex marriage, and polyamory).

At the political level, it finds expression in the attempt to create a unitary national state, the transformation of our once independent institutions of civil society into handmaidens of the state, the transfer of political authority from elected legislatures to unelected judges and bureaucrats insulated from political control, and the replacement of a decentralized system of self-government by rule by executive order, judicial decree, and administrative fiat. As a result, we find ourselves operating with two conflicting constitutional orders: the original order established by the founders and the new and different order that the Left has sought with considerable success to superimpose upon it.

If today’s new orthodoxy is revolutionary in both its intellectual and institutional substance, it is equally revolutionary in the very manner in which it seeks to be established. As the bitterly contested and seemingly interminable culture war that rages around us suggests, the new orthodoxy is, to put it very gently, controversial.

Rather than being designed to immediately translate the will of the numerical majority into law, the American political system — through its division of government power between three different branches selected in different ways and serving different terms in office, and thus representing different constituencies — was designed to foster consensual decision-making. This fact helps explain, as Willmoore Kendall and George W. Carey pointed out more than a half-century ago, why, with the exception of the Civil War, America has little experience of “drastic governmentally imposed social or economic” changes requiring “large-scale coercion,” or of “a legacy of irredentism.” This helps explain the exceptional stability of American democracy.

Making democracy unworkable

What we are witnessing today is an attempt by cultural elites—in the absence of a broad-based public consensus, indeed in the absence even of clear-cut majority support—to impose this new orthodoxy from the top-down, through a combination of raw political power (i.e., control of the executive branch, the administrative apparatus and much of the judiciary); cultural power (i.e., domination of the academy, educational system, entertainment industry, Big Tech and Big Business); and mob rule (e.g., “the 1619 riots,” shouting down speakers on campus, etc.)

The proponents of the new orthodoxy have no interest in (and no patience for) the slow and painstaking work of building a consensus around their new public orthodoxy, of changing the hearts and minds of Americans. They are not interested in having a debate with their opponents, rather they seek to banish them from the public square.

This is not only undemocratic and foreign to the American political tradition, it is profoundly destabilizing, “What makes a democracy workable,” as Kendall and Carey remark, is its ability to combine “the majority-principle” with the “unanimity-principle”—in other words, its ability to have “decisions made by the majority, but in such fashion that these decisions elicit” the “acquiescence” of the outvoted minority.

While simple majority votes may suffice on routine matters like tax rates, much more than a simple majority vote is needed in the type of matters addressed by a society’s public orthodoxy, namely, the society’s fundamental commitments. Absent a consensus, the effort to impose such an orthodoxy in this fashion can only strain the bonds of civic amity to the breaking point, threaten to divide the community “into warring camps committed … to irreconcilable positions,” create the possibility of widespread civil disobedience, raise the spectre of violence, pose the prospect of large-scale coercion, and endanger the very legitimacy of the state.

Is this not exactly what we are seeing all around us today?

The new Jacobins

While the analogy shouldn’t be pushed too far, as Michael Lind points out, the American Left increasingly resembles the Jacobins of revolutionary France. He’s not suggesting that they want to guillotine their opponents; rather, he is calling attention to their wholesale repudiation of the Western heritage, their alienation from America’s political traditions, their ideological iconoclasm, their desire to use state power to eradicate political and cultural traditions and to “substitute new, ideologically useful replacements,” their commitment to a radical remaking of the whole social order, their fanaticism and refusal to compromise, and their thoroughgoing oikophobia.

If the French Revolution marked the eruption into European political life of the ideological forces of radical modernity, what the “Great Awokening” signifies is the sudden eruption of these forces —which here had previously been confined to the academy — on to the American public scene.

To return to where we started: Yes, societies have public orthodoxies; yes, they change over time; and yes, at the moment we stand at a “liminal moment” between the collapse of an of an existing orthodoxy and the establishment of a new one.

There is however nothing normal or typical in what we are experiencing. Today’s battle over the American public orthodoxy is indicative of a fundamental cleavage in our body politic the likes of which we haven’t seen since at least the Civil War. Even during that war, Lincoln could affirm that both sides read the same Bible and prayed to the same God. Would anyone claim that to be true today?

What we confront today is nothing less than an updated and Americanized Jacobinism which seeks nothing less than the wholesale remaking of our political and social order and which is unwilling to take “no” for an answer. The emergence of this new Jacobinism marks a new epoch sea change in our political life and its triumph would mark a fundamental rupture in American history comparable to that created by the Jacobinism of old in French history.

Our disagreements today transcend normal political differences, and are of sufficient magnitude to produce dysfunction, strife and even violence, of sufficient magnitude to make it difficult, if not impossible, for the contending parties to live together in peace in the same body politic. We’re living at a revolutionary moment and the old rules of the game no longer apply. And, make no mistake about it: our adversaries are playing for keeps.

Woke Criminal Justice Reform Has Completely Failed

Today, we romp through some adventures in Woke criminal justice reform to show you this grand experiment has completely failed.

A spike in fentanyl overdose deaths in Colorado is directly attributable to the Democrats reducing possession of hard drugs to a misdemeanor in 2019.  Business owners in Portland are hiring private security to protect their businesses because Portland defunded the police.

A man who stalked and killed an Asian woman in New York City had been arrested seven times in the previous nine months, but let go because of no-or-low-bail policies.  A Los Angeles man was arrested three times in one day because of a no-bail policy.  He’s a piker.  Back in New York, a subway mugger was arrested 16 times in one day.  In Los Angeles, low-or-no bail policies figured into the eulogy of a fallen officer in Los Angeles delivered by a police lieutenant who blamed the gang attack on the fallen officer on California’s Woke anti-police climate.  The father of a 24-year-old graduate student who was murdered in L.A. blamed politicians who let criminals roam free on the streets.

Also in L.A., police are cutting out minor traffic stops like for missing license plates in order to “eliminate bias”.  Thousands of weapons are confiscated through such enforcement, so L.A. just got more dangerous, thanks to Woke criminal justice reform.

Business leaders, police officers, prosecutors, and even Democrat politicians in New York City are criticizing the Woke D.A.’s policies for downgrading felonies, abandoning prison sentences for some crimes, and not prosecuting certain other crimes at all.  You know something’s wrong when a 32-time offender sings the praises of bail reform in New York.  He says he’s “grateful” for being let out all the time because he’s getting too old to be in jail.

Democrats in Washington state rushed to “reimagine policing” in 2021, but are reversing course now.  Last year, they ushered in new laws limiting when police can use force, use certain weapons, or chase suspects.  But now they’re going back to allowing interventions in mental health situations and loosening the weapons ban.

Another confession of error comes from Joe Biden who recently said defunding the police is not the answer.  Boy, is he singing a different tune these days.  On the campaign trail, he promised to ‘redirect’ funds away from the police.

One of the drivers of Woke criminal justice reform is so-called ‘mass incarceration’, the idea that too many young black men are in jail.  Now I’m going to say something some might consider controversial.  If you don’t want mass incarceration, then it’s time to figure out how to get young black males to voluntarily conform their behavior to the minimum standards set forth in the criminal code.  To do that, you’re going to have to disrupt the cultural scripting by which they operate – the cultural scripting that says achieving any success in life or even staying out of trouble is too ‘white’ and to be avoided at all costs.  How do I know this cultural scripting exists?  Because I watched it in action with my own two eyes when I was a criminal defense attorney for seven years with virtually all young black men for clients.  I talked to them and got to learn what made them tick.  End the destructive cultural scripting going on in the black community and you will end mass incarceration.  Turning a blind eye to crime and pretending it doesn’t exist is not the answer, as any victim of black-on-black crime will tell you.
