WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene ROCKS The House, Calls Out The Communists In Charge

I’m shook.

Watch this woman.

In addition, Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has criticized Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell over a deal which paved the way for Congress to raise the debt ceiling.

“The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION,” she tweeted. “Mitch is Biden’s b*tch.”

As of Wednesday morning, her tweet had been liked more than 11,000 times and retweeted nearly 4,000 times.

Rep. MTG calls out the “communists” in charge from the House floor! – [VIDEO]

The Right Scoop • December 15, 2021:

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called out the “communists” in charge of House and the January 6th committee:

“We’ve heard a lot about text messages. I’d like the Democrats and the people on the January 6th committee to produce their text messages, Mr. Speaker, denouncing Antifa, BLM riots that raged across American cities for a year. I would love to read those.

But instead we saw Democrats encourage, incite, and continue to call these riots peaceful. And then when they got arrested and put in jail, they bailed them out so they could go out and riot some more.

I rise in opposition to this resolution to hold Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress because it’s being held by nothing but a kangaroo court. Congress’ job is to make laws, not enforce them. That’s the role of the Executive and the Judicial Branch of this government.

But somehow the communists here in charge have forgotten – or no, not forgotten, are purposefully abusing the Constitution and what this body of Congress is supposed to do.

You see when we go to this level, to the point where we’re forgetting and abusing what our power is, then the American people will trust us no more. And that is exactly what the January 6th committee is doing.”

I love how MTG isn’t afraid to speak her mind and I’m more than certain the left will be outraged that she called them communists on the House floor. But if water is truly wet, you can bet Kevin McCarthy will join the chorus condemning MTG for calling Pelosi and her henchmen ‘communists’.

Biden Admin Releases 1,491 Classified Documents About JFK’s Murder

The Biden administration released over 1,000 classified documents Wednesday regarding the assassination and subsequent investigation of former President John F. Kennedy.

The documents include filings from federal agencies and law enforcement authorities, including the CIA and FBI, as part of the federal government’s review of Kennedy’ assassination.

Among the revelations from the documents is that Lee Harvey Oswald, Kennedy’s apparent murderer, met with the Soviet Union’s embassy consul in Mexico, who was linked to KGB assassins. Oswald, who spent nearly three years in the Soviet Union in the late 1950s and early 1960s, had visited the Cuban and Soviet embassies in Mexico in an attempt to get a visa to the Soviet Union.

Many of the documents appear to be duplicates of redacted files that were previously released, according to CNN. The revelations failed to satisfy many researchers into Kennedy’s assassination, the outlet reported.

“The reason it’s so important is not so much that we’re going to find a smoking gun that changes the entire theory of who killed Kennedy,” Larry Sabato, a professor at the University of Virginia and Kennedy scholar, told CNN. “The lack of transparency and the fact that getting these documents after 58 years is like pulling a whole mouthful of teeth — it tells you why we have so many conspiracy theories.”

“Biden is the first president to come close to acknowledging what cynical conspiracy theorists have long assumed: There are assassination-related documents sealed away at the Archives that might never be made public, or at least not in the lifetime of anyone who remembers where they were when they heard the shocking news from Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963,” journalist and author Philip Shenon wrote in an op-ed for Politico.

The documents also revealed that Australian intelligence agents had warning as early as 1962 that there was a Soviet plot to assassinate Kennedy, but they deemed the person who made the tip to be untrustworthy.

There are still over 10,000 documents to be released, according to CNN, which will be seen by December 2022 at the earliest under the guidance of an executive order issued by President Joe Biden in October.

Video and Texts Show CNN Producer Fantasizing About Sex Acts with Fiancé’s Young Daughter

*CLICK HERE TO TWEET OUT THE VIDEO*


Project Veritas released a new story today featuring graphic texts and video provided by a source that show a producer for CNN fantasizing about molesting his fiancé’s daughter.

Here is some of what is shown in today’s video:

  • The producer in question solicited sexually explicit photos of the source’s underage daughter – in addition to fantasizing about his fiancé’s daughter.
  • The source told Project Veritas she “felt disgusted” and was compelled to come forward, because “these people with power seem to get away” with this behavior.
  • The source went to the authorities, but then came to Project Veritas after she was uncertain proper action would be taken.
  • Project Veritas has reached out to CNN for comment and at this time we’re awaiting a response.

You can watch the video here:

Project Veritas’ first course of action was to reach out to authorities.

Following that, we reached out to the mother of the children to ensure their safety. Project Veritas then reached out to the producer’s employer, CNN, to inform them of the situation and give them the opportunity to comment.

These revelations come on the heels of the arrest of former CNN employee, John Griffin, who was charged with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.

To protect the children, Project Veritas is not yet releasing information about certain individuals involved in the story, including the producer.

Ilhan Omar’s Bill to Combat ‘Islamophobia’ Passes the House

Ilhan Omar’s bill requiring the State Department to combat “Islamophobia” has passed. Omar would like us to believe that “Islamophobia” is as much a threat around the world as antisemitism, and she wants the federal government to monitor, to report on, and to fight the spread of this “hatred.” A report on the bill she has co-sponsored can be found here: “House committee debates antisemitism as Islamophobia monitor bill moves forward,” by Ron Kampeas, Jerusalem Post, December 11, 2021:

A bill that would create an Islamophobia monitor in much the same cast as the State Department’s antisemitism monitor cleared its first hurdle on Friday, after a House committee debate about antisemitism.

The bill, whose lead sponsors were Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., one of three Muslims in Congress, and Rep. Jan Schakowsky, who is Jewish, was approved Friday by the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee along party lines, with the majority of Democrats voting for it. It now goes to the House floor.

Ilhan Omar has persuaded – some might say inveigled — a Jewish Congresswoman to join her in co-sponsoring the bill. This is her standard technique for avoiding charges of antisemitism, to “reach out” to liberal Jews who are insufficiently wary of her wiles and guiles, to join her in whatever mischief she is up to. Her latest effort is to make Congress believe that “Islamophobia” — so often invoked, so rarely defined — really is such a major problem worldwide that it needs a special office in the federal government to monitor it.

Etymologically, “Islamophobia” means the “irrational fear or hatred of Islam.” But “Islamophobia” is a word that was invented not to describe that “irrational fear or hatred of Islam and of Muslims,” but in order to shut down any criticism of Islam, no matter how justified. The word is now affixed to anyone who dares to suggest that the large-scale presence of Muslims in non-Muslim lands, given the refusal of many Muslims to integrate into the larger society, and instead remain hostilely aloof from it, is worrisome. The word is affixed as well to anyone who dares to suggest that the Qur’an is full of violent passages, such as 2:191-193, 3:151, 4:89, 8:12, 8:60, 9:5, 9:29, 47:4, where Muslims are instructed to “fight” and to “kill” and to “smite at the necks of” and to “strike terror in the hearts of” Infidels. It is affixed to those who remind us that the Qur’an describes Muslims as “the best of peoples” (3:110) and non-Muslims as “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). It is affixed to those who point out that Muhammad married his favorite, and last, wife when she was six, and consummated the marriage when she was nine, and as a consequence many Muslims have similarly taken very young brides. It is affixed to those who mention that Muhammad, considered by Muslims to be the “Perfect Man” and “Model of Conduct,” asked aloud for someone to rid him of three people who had mocked him – Asma bint Marwan, Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, and Abu Afak — and his followers dutifully murdered, seriatim, all three.

During an extended committee debate on Thursday, Republicans argued that there was no need to track Islamophobia, and that the monitor position would be used as an instrument to oppress conservatives. They also said that it would undercut the fight against antisemitism — and even encourage antisemites.

There is no need to track “Islamophobia,” given the only legitimate meaning of that word – an “irrational hatred or fear of Islam” — because in the world today, we find many reasons to consider such a fear perfectly rational. Since 9/11, there have been over 40,000 separate terror attacks committed by Muslims all over the globe, against Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Baha’is, Yazidis, and even Muslims who are of a different sect, or of the right sect, but deemed insufficiently devout. It is not irrational to fear a faith whose “Perfect Man” boasted in one hadith that “I have been made victorious through terror,” and in another that “War is deceit.” This “Model of Conduct” (uswa hasana) also took part in the slaughter of 600-900 bound prisoners of the Banu Qurayza, a Jewish tribe in Mecca. He took part in the slaughter, too, of the inoffensive Jewish farmers of the Khaybar oasis, claiming as part of his plunder the Jewish girl Saafiya, after her father, brother, and husband had been murdered by Muhammad’s fighters. When Muslims of the Islamic State murdered the Yazidi men, and took their women and girls as sex slaves, they were following the example of the “Perfect Man.” Is it “irrational” to fear a faith that presents Muhammad as a model – the “Perfect Man” — to emulate? Are we “irrational” when we fear a faith that animates such violent groups as the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al-Shebab, Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Sipah-e-Sahaba, and dozens more? Is it irrational to be alarmed by the “No-Go” neighborhoods in Europe, where Muslims make life difficult and dangerous for non-Muslims, including even firemen and policemen? These fears are not irrational but sensible. Yet anyone who expresses misgivings about the effect of a growing Muslim presence in Europe is immediately described as “Islamophobic” and both “extreme far-right” and “racist” (though Islam is not a race) for good measure.

Democrats pushed back, saying that the US government was capable of simultaneously tracking and exposing both bigotries. Notably, Jewish Democrats on the committee were among the first to speak in the bill’s defense, a showing that underscored their argument that an Islamophobia monitor would complement and not undercut the antisemitism monitor.

These Jewish Democrats persist in believing, or claiming to believe, that “Islamophobia” is something more than a means to shut down all criticism, no matter how justified, of Islam. They are willing to do this, it seems, in order to virtue-signal something along the idiotic lines of “we who know full well the evils of antisemitism must stand with our Muslim brothers and sisters in their times of peril.” Nauseating.

There is no comparison to be made between the oldest hatred, antisemitism, that Jews have endured in the Christian world for two thousand years, and for 1400 years in the Islamic one. Antisemitism was responsible, within living memory, for the murders of six million Jews, and “Islamophobia,” a word that has appeared only within the last few decades, in order to silence all criticism of Islam and of Muslims, no matter how sober and thoughtful and fact-based that criticism may be.

In the Western world, wherever large numbers of Muslim migrants have settled in recent decades, the result of that sudden influx has been to create a situation that for the indigenous non-Muslims, and for other, non-Muslim, immigrants, is more unpleasant, expensive, and physically dangerous than would be the case without that large-scale Muslim presence.

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., who is Jewish, noted the pivotal role a letter from George Washington to a community of Jews in Rhode Island played in making the United States a safe haven for Jews.

“And so, religious freedom was born in my home state in Touro Synagogue in those words from the first president of the United States,” Cicilline said. “And so we should be very proud of that tradition, and making sure that no one suffers discrimination, because of their religious tradition, is central to that. This is not about ‘pick one,’ we should of course condemn and have condemned and will continue to condemn antisemitism and the rise of it.”

The word “Islamophobic” – let’s keep repeating — is not used mainly to describe those who “discriminate against Muslims,” for there are so few cases of those, but, rather, employed to malign those non-Muslims who actually study Islam. When these report their findings on the texts and teachings of Islam, they are called “Islamophobes.” When they adduce the historical evidence, from 1400 years of Muslim conquests of many lands and many peoples, of the mistreatment suffered by those many peoples, they are called “Islamophobes.” When they report that upon being conquered, non-Muslims were offered by the victorious Muslims only three choices: death, or immediate conversion to Islam, or acceptance of the permanent status of the dhimmi, subject to many political, economic, and social disabilities, including the payment of the onerous jizyah, a tax imposed on non-Muslims to buy “protection” from the Muslims themselves, they are again called….”Islamophobes.”

The bill’s defenders cited ongoing persecution of Muslims in China, Myanmar, India and elsewhere as an impetus. The monitor position, like the one that tracks antisemitism. worldwide, would have no enforcement mechanism. It would be designated only to monitor bigotry overseas, not domestically.

Of all the examples of “Islamophobia” that are adduced by Ilhan Omar and her fellows, the only one that really qualifies is the Chinese policy of herding Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang into re-education camps, confiscating Qur’ans that are not the officially approved versions distributed by the Chinese government, closing many mosques, outlawing “religious” beards and Muslim first names..

Whether it is the atrocities being committed against the Uyghurs in China and the Rohingya in Burma, the crackdowns on Muslim populations in India and Sri Lanka, the scapegoating of Muslim refugees and other Muslims in Hungary and Poland, the acts of white supremacist violence targeting Muslims in New Zealand and Canada, or the targeting of minority Muslim communities in Muslim-majority countries like Pakistan, Bahrain, and Iran — the problem of Islamophobia is global in scope,” Omar said Friday in praising the advance of the bill.

Other Jewish Democrats speaking in defense of the bill included Ted Deutch of Florida, Susan Wild of Pennsylvania, and Andy Levin of Michigan.

But Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, argued that a monitor for Islamophobia would undercut the work of the antisemitism monitor.

To suggest that Islamophobia is on par with antisemitism is to dramatically understate and even trivialize the historic and pervasive nature that makes antisemitism such a difficult problem to overcome,” said Chabot. “We should avoid such a dangerous false equivalency at all cost as it could be used by some extremists to actually justify further antisemitic activity.”

Cicilline said “no one is suggesting equivalence.”

But that’s exactly what Ilhan Omar is suggesting. She wants a bill to monitor “Islamophobia” that will track the language setting up the government’s “antisemitism” monitor. She wants to convince us that “Islamophobia” is equally virulent, irrational, and dangerous as antisemitism.

Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York, a Jewish Republican, focused less on the bill’s content and more on its author, Omar, who has faced criticism from fellow Democrats as well as Republicans for remarks seen as antisemitic.

My colleague who introduces today’s resolution has made a number of statements deeply offensive, has taken a number of foreign policy positions that many on this committee and in Congress and in our country have issue with,” Zeldin said. “And when the statements were specifically targeting people who are Jewish, our nation’s great ally in Israel.”

He also said the bill too broadly defined Islamophobia. The bill’s authors, Omar and Schakowsky, used the 2003 law that established an antisemitism monitor as a template.

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Florida, said he feared the Biden administration would use the bill to attack Americans.

“That’s the whole point of this,” Mast said. “Let’s create an office of attack for people speaking about their concerns.”

The critics of Ilhan Omar note that she has made many remarks deemed antisemitic, including her claim that Jews “buy” pro-Israel votes in Congress – “It’s all about the benjamins, baby.” She has supported BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction), that attempts to delegitimize and thereby weaken the Jewish state. She has denounced Israel as an “apartheid” regime. She has accused Israel of deliberately killing civilians in Gaza.

None of that matters. The bill setting up an “Islamophobia” monitor will pass – no Democrats want to be perceived as soft on “haters.” The Republicans are talking sense, but the Democrats have the votes. One more defeat for common sense. One more victory for the nonsense and lies to protect Islam that the Western world seems determined to believe.

The Enemy of the Truth is the Myth

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.” – John F. Kennedy

“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” – Arthur Conan Doyle


An Office of Strategic Studies (now the CIA) report titled “A Psychological Analysis of Adolf Hitler: His Life and LegendWalter C. Langer stated:

His [Hitler’s] primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

Does this sound familiar? Are these rules used by politicians at every level in America today? Is truth being replaced by big lies or by myths?

Truth is now at risk in the world.

Truth is the bedrock of any moral culture and healthy society. Without truth there is no justice. Telling the truth is fundamental to the wellbeing of individuals, families, workers, leaders, law enforcement officers, members of the military, judges, juries, journalists, artists, doctors, nurses, scientists and of course the politicians.

English writer Al David wrote, One lie has the power to tarnish a thousand truths.” While this may be true it is also true that every myth is the mortal enemy of truth.

As John Fitzgerald Kennedy said the enemy of truth is the myth.

QUESTION: What myths are now driving the world and now our nation?

Truths and Myths

We have compiled a list of myths that have taken root in the world and many of these myths have come across the porous borders of America to destroy the truth.

The following are some of the myths we have seen over our lifetime:

  1. The world is going to end because of climate change (a.k.a. global warming, global cooling, the weather).
  2. Government is God (i.e. government is the only means to make you happy, healthy and wise).
  3. Communism is better than capitalism (e.g. central control of the means of production is better than an individual’s right to purse his or her happiness)
  4. Guns, not people, murder (e.g. the instrument used to murder another is the real culprit, not the individual using that instrument to commit murder).
  5. There is no God (see #2 above). No further explanation needed.
  6. Going into debt is good (e.g. nations indebting their citizens is needed in order to care for its citizens).
  7. Human beings evolved from apes (i.e. you are evolved from gorillas, bonobos, orangutans, etc.).
  8. Humans use only 10% of their brains.
  9. Intelligent Quotient (IQ) testing is racist (e.g. testing a person’s intelligence is harmful and hurtful especially for minorities).
  10. A mother killing her unborn child is a woman and only a woman’s choice (i.e. my body my choice).
  11. Islam is the religion of peace and if you imply otherwise you are Islamophobic (e.g. shouting Allah Akbar in a crowded theatre is okay).
  12. If you believe that gender is binary (male and female) and your believe marriage is between one man and one woman your are homophobic (e.g. J.K. Rawlings)
  13. Government can spend its way out of debt.
  14. Politicians have your best interests at heart.
  15. Men continue to oppress women and must be stopped at all cost (i.e. the feminist movement vs the alpha male).
  16. Government can provide you with everything if you just let it (e.g. Karl Marx).
  17. The police are evil and must be defunded.
  18. Black lives matter more than any other lives.
  19. Peaceful demonstrations include looting, burning down buildings and attacking innocent individuals randomly.
  20. You don’t need identification in order to vote (i.e. voter ID)
  21. You can vote in any country even if you are not a legal citizen of that country.
  22. Eliminating a country’s borders is a good thing.
  23. Social justice trumps equal justice under the law.
  24. If you are born white you are a supremacist.
  25. If you believe in one all powerful God then you are an enemy of the state.
  26. What you read on the internet, watch on the news and read in your local newspaper is the truth.
  27. The Torah and Bible are filled with lies that have become the opiate of the people.
  28. Finally, there is no need for any Jude’s Christian God but it’s okay to follow Mohammed.

Myths are now driving global public policies. Those who stand against these myths, like parents questioning what their children are taught in public schools, are now considered domestic terrorists by various governments.

Truth is absolute. The truth will set you free. Tyrants fear the truth. The truth is the greatest enemy of the state.

Myths are the preferred tools of the dictator (e.g. Hitler and the Jews). Hitler and the Nazi Party understood that, “Repeating a lie often enough and it eventually becomes the truth.”

History has proven that telling a myth often enough eventually makes the people believe that the myth is the truth.

The more “persistent, persuasive and unrealistic” the myth the better for the tyrants, the worse for the people of the world.

As Elvis Presley said, “Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”

If you have more myths that you wish to share please add them in the comment section below and we will update this column.

Thanks for reading and sharing this column.

Crime and No Punishment

In the classic sitcom from the 1960s, “Get Smart,” the bad guys were from an organization called “Chaos.” The good guys, led by Maxwell Smart, were called “Control.”

Today, chaos is often prevailing over control. Only this isn’t a comedy, and the results are tragic.

We are experiencing a crime wave seldom seen in previous times in America.

Murders are up. ABC News notes:

“At least 12 major U.S. cities have broken annual homicide records in 2021—and there’s still three weeks to go in the year.” One police captain said it’s “worse than a war zone around here lately.”

But homicide isn’t the only crime that is way up. On “Black Friday,” when stores are supposed to have such strong sales because of Christmas (putting them in the black), many businesses were instead hit with a rash of smash-and-grab robberies across the country. Home Depots, Nordstrom’s, Best Buys, Foot Lockers and others have been hit in places like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

NBCChicago.com (11/27/21) reports,

“Police are alerting businesses in Chicago to recent thefts of purses at retail shops….The thieves flee in vehicles, most of which were reported stolen.”

Fox32 of Chicago reports on a robbery over this past weekend, in which luxury jewelry items were stolen. Yet Mayor Lori Lightfoot apparently blames the companies hit. She recently said,

“I’m disappointed that they are not doing more to take safety and make it a priority.”

In early December, thousands of dollars’ worth of toys and other goods for Christmas were gathered by a non-profit in Chicago to help the underprivileged—and were stolen under cover of night.

When California Governor Gavin Newsom was on “The View,” Joy Behar, no friend of conservatives, told him,

“Critics in law enforcement blame this on your lax bail and theft policies emboldening criminals.”

Newsom responded that the crimes like this are just as bad in Texas as they are in California, only Fox News won’t show that. The claim is misleading at best.

What’s going on? An incessant call for defunding the police is taking its toll. Meanwhile, we have crime with no punishment. Leftist prosecutors, district attorneys, and judges are letting many criminals go with a slap on the wrist, if that. Recently a career criminal who tried to run over his wife with a car in Wisconsin was released on a mere $1000 bail—only to purposely drive into a Christmas parade two days later killing six and injuring 62.

Some of those magistrates (including the prosecutor who let the parade killer out) have been elected with money pouring in from George Soros, an atheist who wants to see America (his adopted country) brought down several pegs.

I interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin, founder of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians, for our D. James Kennedy Ministries television special on Soros.

The rabbi told our viewers, “There’s no question that Soros money and Soros-inspired money is flowing into the crowds busy smashing plate glass windows in the cities of Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, and in cities everywhere else around the country.”

As Tucker Carlson of Fox News has pointed out, as quoted in Newsweek:

“[Soros’] latest area of focus is criminal justice. From Texas to Philadelphia [and] the state of Virginia, Soros has reportedly spent millions of dollars backing candidates for District Attorney, for prosecutor. Once elected, these candidates…have ended cash bail, treated felonies like misdemeanors, and sometimes ignored some crimes entirely.”

Rabbi Lapin adds,

“Does he want chaos in the streets? Absolutely, that has always been the dream of the revolutionaries. It’s always been the fervent desire of those who understand that in order to rebuild society, you first of all have to destroy what is.”

The founders of America were very concerned about order in society.

What’s happening in America today with our crime wave is bad anthropology run amok. Biblical anthropology asserts that man is sinful and crimes need to be punished. Bad anthropology, like that espoused by Marxists, asserts that man is basically good—but that it’s society or structures that are bad and need to be torn down. Instead, the theory goes, we will rebuild these structures to be more just, affirming the goodness of man. We see the results now being carried out by coddled criminals on the streets.

What horrors Marxism has unleashed on planet earth. Yet it continues to exert its demonic influence. These magistrates, many funded by the George Soros the Marxist, are among the latest examples.

And we all suffer—especially the poorest among us—who lack stronger security measures.

The founders of America showed a better way to live in a controlled society, with liberty under the rule of law. How much better that is than the chaos that so many leftist elitists try to unleash on the rest of us.

MEDICARE’S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE: ‘Everyone 18+ should get a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot’

I just received the following message titled “Get your COVID-19 vaccine booster shot” from Medicare.gov:

Even if you’re fully vaccinated for COVID-19, it’s still important to get your COVID-19 vaccine booster shotA booster shot increases the strength of your antibody response, so when the COVID-19 virus mutates, a boost makes it more likely that your antibodies can protect you against variants, like Omicron and Delta.

Medicare covers a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot at no cost to you. If you’re fully vaccinated, you can get a booster from the same COVID-19 vaccine that you originally got, or choose a different one.

  • If you got a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a booster shot at least 6 months after you complete your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series.
  • If you got a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a booster shot at least 2 months after you got your first shot.

Find a Booster

Don’t delay  go to Vaccines.gov to find COVID-19 vaccines and boosters near you.

Sincerely,

The Medicare Team

The federal government is all in on getting jabbed. They can’t allow anyone to disobey them. They use fear to promote panic, which leads to this newest form of medical tyranny.

John F. Kenney said, “The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

Getting jabbed is not only a deliberate, contrived and dishonest lie. It is a myth that the Biden administration keeps pushing upon the American people in a persistent, persuasive and unrealistic way. Don’t fall for it. It’s your body and your choice on whether to get jabbed or not get jabbed.

Healthcare is between a patients and his or her doctor. The federal government cannot mandate healthcare.

Just in time for Christmas. Go figure.

THE NEFARIOUS NINE: The top ‘9 public figures’ pushing Biden’s Build Back Worse agenda

“The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.” – President John F. Kennedy


Many Americans have wondered what has happened to the party of JFK. What has changed in the Democrat Party to make its policies so egregious?

Well we now understand what has changed. It’s the party’s nefarious (wicked and criminal) leaders and followers.

The Democrat Party has used key people to show its “inclusiveness” and “wokeness.” These people have become symbols of the Democrat Party and its agenda. These people are now leading the Build Back Better agenda, and openly promoting their egregious social and “cultural war” against ordinary American citizens. A war that they intend to win at any and all costs. Their weapon of choice is big government.

The fundamental transformation of American is happening right before our eyes!

The Nefarious Nine

Let’s look at the list of these dedicated “transformers” that we call the “Nefarious Nine“:

  1. Michele Obama. We list Michele rather than Barack as our number one on the list of nefarious nine people because we predict that she will run for president in 2024, should Biden be incapable, incapacitated or simply pushed aside by the Democrat Party as unelectable. Why Michele? Because she’s black and a woman. Some consider her oppressed because she is a black woman even though she and Barack own three homes worth millions. Also, because, according to Newsweek, nearly 60% of Biden’s cabinet appointments have been former Obama people. Michele is putting her people into the Biden administration, there’s no doubt. We believe that it is Michele who wears the political pants in the Obama family, and it is Michele, and to a lesser extent her husband, who actually controls the party. We predict Michele in 2024.
  2. George Floyd. George Floyd has become a hero, an idol for the Democrats, the social justice radicals and Black Lives Matter hoodlums. This criminal, drug addict, illegal drug pusher and convicted felon has even been portrayed in a painting as a black Jesus. It’s interesting that Democrats are the ones taking our breath away while shouting “I can’t breathe.”
  3. Black Lives Matter. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has taken over the Democrat Party. Born in Ferguson, Missouri and emboldened ever since then BLM has become the most racist and radical arm of the Democrat Party. BLM’s anti-police policies in 2021 have lead to increased crime in 12 Democrat controlled cities. Defund the police is their mantra because they want to replace the police as the only real social justice organization. BLM isn’t about law and order, it’s about control of the streets of our cities, towns and the nation. BLM coupled with Antifa have caused more death and destruction than we the people have seen in decades. Even the KKK wasn’t this nefarious. And Antifa. The Anti-Fascist (Antifa) movement began under the tutelage of the media and supported by members of the Democrat Party. The media has labeled the destruction caused by the terrorist organization as “mostly peaceful.” As a Oleg Atbasian, a citizen of the former Soviet Union put it, “Fascism came to America under the name of anti-Fascism.” There is no difference between a Fascist and an anti-Fascist. They both have the same goal – turning American into a Communist country.
  4. Joe Biden. Biden is the consummate career politician. He’s never held any other position of importance that has taught him anyway to do things differently. Joe only knows how to use his position to enrich himself and his family. Just look at Hunter Biden to understand. However, Biden is just a figurehead and not really in charge of this administration. As we pointed out, above, it is Michele and Barack who are truly in charge of both the party and the Biden administration. While Biden had denied that his administration is just Obama version 2.0, we see strong similarities in the policies, politics and agendas of both administrations. Sadly, Americans see Biden at best as a caricature and at worst as an incompetent fool.
  5. Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris has gotten political positions in nefarious ways. She has been accused of using sex to get appointed into key positions by fellow Democrat and the former Mayor of San Francisco Willie Brown. Kamala Harris did have a relationship with Willie Brown, who later served as San Francisco’s mayor, between 1994 and 1995 ( here ). Kamala was called black during the 2020 presidential campaign by the media when in fact her blood line is from India. Her father P. V. Gopalan was a government official in India and her mother Shyamala Gopalan Harris immigrated to the United States from India. There’s growing discontent with Kamala in the Democrat Party. Why? We postulate that this discontent is being propagated in order to create a path for Michele Obama to run in 2024 and name her own VP pick, which will not be Kamala.
  6. Bill Gates. The former founder and CEO of Microsoft had become a leading figure in pushing the Biden agenda. Gates not only donates to the Democrat Party but has been part and parcel of the vaccines being produced to deal with Covid. Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave $917,510, or 81.49%, of their total political donations to the Democrat Party in 2020. On September 14th, 2020 Stephanie Beasley reported, “The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is pushing for more long-term investments in health infrastructure worldwide — including vaccine research, development, and manufacturing capacity — in a new report, which highlights how the COVID-19 pandemic has derailed progress on the Sustainable Development Goals.” Vaccine mandates help Bill and Melinda become richer, but at whose expense?
  7. Elizabeth Warren. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has become the poster child for the radical left wing of the Democrat Party. Warren has nefariously said, “Groupthink can become a serious issue – old ideas stay around after they’re useful, and new ideas too often don’t get a fair hearing.” Interestingly, it’s groupthink that drives Warren and the Democrats each and every day. The old ideas that Warren, and Democrats, are referring to are the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution.
  8. Greta Thunberg. Greta Tintin Eleonora Ernman Thunberg has become the face of the Green New Deal both in the United States and globally. Greta is a Swedish environmental activist who has made her lifelong primary issue climate change. In 2018 Greta founded a movement known as Fridays for Future (FFF) (a.k.a. called School Strike for Climate). According to its website FRIDAYS FOR FUTURE or FFF, [I]s a youth-led and -organised global climate strike movement that started in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate. In the three weeks leading up to the Swedish election, she sat outside Swedish Parliament every school day, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis. She was tired of society’s unwillingness to see the climate crisis for what it is: a crisis. Science tells us that there are three absolutes about the climate: 1. The climate changes. 2. These changes in the climate follow natural cycles (e.g. summer, fall, winter, spring) and 3. There is nothing mankind can do to change these natural cycles.
  9. Rachel Levine. Dr. Rachel Levine is the first cisgender person in history appointed to a senior position in the United States government. Levine is now the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Levine, a pediatrician, would become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the Democrat controlled U.S. Senate. Levine is now wearing the military uniform of a 4-Star General. General Levine said after his/her confirmation, “I am very pleased to advocate for the LGBTQ community in terms of health equity and equality and fairness. And I feel that I have been able to do that in Pennsylvania. And I’m able to do that nationally now.” Levine now has the power to push the LGBTQ+ agenda in our schools, hospitals, communities and nation. Gird your loins, here he/she comes.

Runners up to the Nefarious Nine

Here’s a list of nine others who we considered, and who almost made, the Nefarious Nine list:

  1. Chuck Schumer
  2. Nancy Pelosi
  3. Illan Omar
  4. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez
  5. Ghislaine Maxwell, former aide to Jeffery Epstein.
  6. Republican Mitt Romney (a.k.a. RINO).
  7. Republican Mitch McConnell (a.k.a. Minority Leader RINO).
  8. Lori Lightfoot the Mayor of Chicago.
  9. Gavin Newsom, Governor of California.

We ask our readers to add their own nefarious people in the below comment section.

Biden’s Bad Moon A-Rising

RELATED TWEET:

Meanwhile – Back in the Swamp!

Our corrupt elites never fail to disappoint.  In recent weeks:

Chuck Schumer, who criticized President Trump for being in bed with Russia, along with other top Democrats took campaign contributions from a prominent Democrat fundraiser whose lobbying firm received $8.5 million from the Nord Stream 2 pipeline which is owned by Gazprom, the Russian state-run energy giant.  Schumer recently refused to have a floor vote on sanctions against Russia.  No conflict of interest here, nosiree.

Then, again, congress critters are not known for their high ethical standards.  Nancy Pelosi’s husband owns up to a million dollars in call options on Tesla stock, while Nancy is out there pushing federal subsidies for electric vehicles to the tune of tens of billions of dollars for charging stations and tax credits.  It might all be legal, but it sure stinks -p-ew! – and Nancy won’t comment.

Lawmakers are supposed to report stock trades but seven of them – four Democrats and three Republicans – did not, according to an ethics watchdog group that filed complaints.   One lawmaker failed to report 300 transactions.  Critics say lawmakers are finding ways around reporting requirements and little is being done to enforce the rules.

Democrat Maxine Waters paid her daughter another $81,000 in campaign funds in fiscal 2021, raising the total to more than $1.2 million since 2003.  Nice work, if you can get it, but most of us can’t.

A Democrat Congresswoman from Florida used her official Twitter account to push followers to her Senate campaign account, apparently violating House rules against using taxpayer-funded resources for campaign purposes, critics said.

Speaking of campaign contributions, a health firm in California whose personnel donated almost a million dollars to Joe Biden and other Democrat campaigns was just ordered to pay $90 million to settle claims it had defrauded Medicare.  Worst case, this is an example of companies greasing the palms of politicians in the hopes they will look the other way when it comes to questionable activities.

A lawsuit is alleging the EPA violated the law when it threw out a Trump administration conflict of interest rule in order to replace Trump appointees on advisory committees.  “In an unprecedented purge, EPA eliminated all industry representatives from two important advisory committees in order to stack those committees with academics who are financially beholden to EPA for multimillion-dollar research grants,” the complaint reads.  People dependent on the EPA for their livelihood now passing judgment on what the EPA wants to do – imagine that.

Over at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the agency announced its intention to prohibit the use of education benefits at some for-profit schools, but investor activity in the stocks affected picked up before the announcement was made.  Some are concerned the announcement was either mishandled or intentionally leaked to facilitate insider trading.

Finally, sixteen Biden appointees have gotten ethics waivers exempting them from the ethics rules other people have to follow.  Observers anticipate the adventures of these swamp creatures will become the subject of congressional investigations if Republicans take over the House or Senate next year.  We can only hope.  We deserve better than swamp gas, don’t we?

Fauci & Mengele: Evil, for the Greater Good

Two doctors, almost a century apart, united in a common purpose. 


Respected South African TV and radio journalist and war correspondent Lara Logan recently triggered leftist ire when she compared Dr. Anthony Fauci, with the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele.  “What you see on Dr. Fauci, this is what people say to me, that he doesn’t represent science to them. He represents Josef Mengele … the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps . . . The level of suffering that has been created because of this disease is now being seen in the cold light of day, i.e., the truth, the people see there is no justification for what is being done.”

Mengele was notorious for causing serious harm and injustice – torturous experimental procedures and surgeries on Jews primarily, but also on Romani and others.  If we review Fauci’s history and allow him to continue ad infinitum, there’s no telling that he may well exceed Mengele’s title, “Doctor of Death.”  The experiments performed by both were often touted as being for the greater good, that the intense suffering of some is acceptable for medical advancements that benefit the more worthy.

The world has been made aware of Fauci’s painful experiments on dogs, whose vocal chords were cut to eliminate their barks and whimpers, and on monkeys, without benefit of pain killers or anesthesia.  Research in psychology and criminology shows that animal abuse is not just the sign of the abuser’s minor personality flaw, but a symptom of deep mental disturbance.  They will move on to cruelty to their fellow humans – and he has.

We now know that Fauci used tax-payer dollars for NIH-funded experiments performed on hundreds of AIDs orphans in a New York City hospital in 2004, resulting in the death of more than 200.  Nurses revealed that they tested Thalidomide on some children, a medication already known to produce severe birth defects in thousands of children.  One report said that pregnant women or those considering pregnancy were forbidden to dispense the drug, yet it was administered to children through a G-tube directly into the stomach and intestines.  The children “shriveled and died,” but it was deemed for the greater good.

There is a growing body of research that links cruelty to animals to cruelty to people: both are living beings, both feel pain, experience distress, and may die.  Fauci’s insistence that the current insufficiently tested chemicals be given to everyone, from infants to the elderly, despite the revelation of ensuing heart muscle damage, nerve damage, and serious muscle pain, reveals his bent toward apathy and cruelty.  Fauci and his associates are serial killers.

Today’s injections of presumed cures for COVID-19 are coming under intense scrutiny, with reports of raised welts at the point of entry; followed by nausea and swollen lymph nodes; followed by symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome (neurological disorders), thrombosis (blood clots), and myocarditis (inflammation of heart muscle), spontaneous abortions, miscarriages, eventual cancer, damaged immune systems, and death.   World Health Organization’s VigiAccess provides public access to the reported potential side effects of 24 medicinal products.  With the second-highest number of deaths for influenza vaccine noted at 272,202 (1968-2021), the absolute highest is for the COVID-19 vaccine at 2,457,386 (2020-2021).    Nothing else comes close.

A December 5, 2021 report from Americasfrontlinedoctors.org published news of  Vaccine-Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (VAIDS), that we will soon become aware of widespread immune erosion.  The vaccinated will be more vulnerable to illness and death than the unvaccinated.

The UK’s Lancet studies of 1.6 million Swedish individuals shows the vaccinated were at greater risk than the unvaccinated; a sign of “immune erosion” or “acquired immune deficiency,” leading to the aforementioned post-vaccine illnesses, resulting in either chronic illness or death.

Scotland reported that the infection fatality rate is 3.3 higher in the vaccinated than in the unvaccinated, the risk of death 2.15 times higher.

An Israeli report of August 17, 2021 revealed that the severe cases are the fully vaccinated who account for 85-90 percent of the hospitalization.  Their infection fatality rate is 3.3 times higher for the vaccinated than for the unvaccinated, and that 3,133 people contracted the illness from the vaccinated individuals.

The insanity continues when people refuse the shots.  They are threatened with job loss, banned from attending functions or shopping, and put under lockdown, including serious and prolonged self-imprisonment in some countries.

This is not the government’s strong desire to protect its citizenry for the greater good, but the worldwide plan of the Marxist’s Great Reset, and the numerous ways that have been set into motion to control and eliminate large swaths of people (billions) for depopulation without casting suspicion on the “well engineered bioweapon toxin,” the spike protein.  Dr. Shankara Chetty explained, “They’ve engineered a virus and put this weapons-grade package onto it, called ‘spike protein’ . . . The vaccine will kill at least 1,000,000,000 people.”

Now we come to the opposition to Lara Logan’s position, the Jewish groups that are protective of the Holocaust, that the term may not be used in vain.  They fear that by using it for issues other than the Nazi genocide, the severity of the term may be diminished.  They understandably seek to protect the use of its application, but Logan did not say “Holocaust.”  She said that Fauci “represents Josef Mengele, the Nazi doctor who did experiments on Jews during the Second World War and in the concentration camps.”   Clearly, she was referring to the psychology that explains how humans can view others as guinea pigs, lower life forms.  She was perfectly correct.  The two share that similarity and who is to say how far Fauci would go if he were allowed to continue.

There are also Jews (who disassociate or are self-hating) whose psychology has never been completely understood, not for lack of trying.   They are uncomfortable with the mildest reference to the Nazi killing machine, preferring to disengage from the nightmare.  They may be escaping painful memories or family history, but keep their identity rather than convert to another religion.  They remain recognizable but choose to distance themselves from the entire Yiddishkeit of Eastern Europe and the successes of modern-day Israel.

There are also Jews who are simply antisemitic, such as in the ADL, who stray from their mission to fight defamation.  They feature antisemitic speakers who openly express their hatred of Israel.  The now-woke CEO Jonathan Greenblatt has begun telling the Jews that they must fight their own anti-black racism.  How ludicrous indeed when Israeli Jews includes Jews of color.  The ADL raises funds presumably for Jewish issues but uses them for other causes.  Greenblatt has joined George Soros, Bill Gates, and other globalists in the not-so-secret globalist meetings in Aspen. They hate their heritage (Judaism and America) but pretend otherwise so as to continue inflicting harm.  The ADL is not worrying about trivializing the Holocaust.  They are worried that they’ll be drumming up more sympathy for Jewish causes.

Lara Logan sees the comparisons of Fauci and Mengele as a way of awakening the masses.  We learned the extent of Mengele’s deeds after World War II; we may not learn Fauci’s totals until after this war against civilization.  Fauci, the revered scientist, and Gates, the benevolent philanthropist, are protected by our media and this administration.  The suffering of  people who’ve had the injections and the looming misery by the delayed spike proteins remain in question, but there are courageous voices who are beginning to speak out.  Not everyone has access to unexpurgated news, and there are those who would rather not know, so they cover their ears and their faces, trust a socialist government that claims to be working for the greater good, and obey without question.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko has warned that administering the experimental gene therapy, called “vaccines,” is mass murder, crimes against humanity, but who’s listening?  Zelenko tried cautioning Israel, but the state is still injecting its citizens.  Pfizer has bullied several countries into taking the shots and has signed documents against their liability for harm.  Pfizer has paid out hundreds of billions of dollars for severe harm caused to children; few are aware, or accept the suffering of others for the greater good.

Lara Logan quoted what she observed.  There are no trains to concentration camps or extermination camps, but there is already news that Austria and Germany are Nazifying again with lockdowns for as long as 20 months to date, comparable to incarcerations.  Severe fines are among the punishments for walking without injection confirmation – “Your papers, please.”  Australia is beyond incomprehensible.  Do we really want to allow our government to exercise such police-state control over our citizens?  Logan is right to expose what she can – the number of sick, hospitalized, permanently damaged, breathing problems, nerve damage, and heart muscle damage much worse after COVID jabs than all other vaccines.  We must also alert the public about the number of children who are whisked off by school authorities for injections without parental knowledge.  This is medical tyranny, and they’re now coming for the babies.

Logan used the example of Mengele to call to our attention the increasing dangers.  This is a new world, with new techniques, but the same justification, that they have our welfare in mind; it is for the greater good.   This is a modernized world with new techniques – invasion without tanks, death without bombs – but we still have people who seek to rule uber alles.

#TeamTERF Pushes Back Against Trans Activism

The vast majority of the planet could be classified as TERFs, since most people do not believe that people can change sex at will.


TERFAbbreviation for:

  1. Trans Educated Rational Female (female form)
  2. Trans Educated Rational Father (male form)
  3. Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist (archaic)

During the recent controversy about Dave Chapelle’s Netflix special, The Closer, the term TERF was in the news although, as is common when it comes to trans issues, the mainstream media reporting was melodramatic and contained inaccuracies. Dave referred to himself as belonging to “Team TERF”, and made various jokes which were perceived to be transphobic.

The term TERF (“trans exclusionary radical feminist”) is widely used by trans rights activists as a slur. It appears that it was originally coined to describe people who do not believe that men who wish to be women, and who claim that they were “coercively assigned male at birth”(?!), are in fact women, and then proceed to “discriminate” against them as a result by declining them access to female-only spaces and entitlements.

We are reliably informed that these TERFs are a small minority. These activists seem to be blissfully ignorant of the fact that the vast majority of the eight billion people on the planet could be classified as TERFs, since most people (for some strange reason) do not believe that people can change sex at will.

The use of the term has since broadened to apply to anyone who dares to question any tenet of trans ideology. This of course includes parents such as myself who attempt to protect their kids from premature medicalization when they suddenly claim a trans identity, and instead try to obtain appropriate care and support for them. Even a parent who eventually agrees to allow their child to transition will be vilified as a TERF if they question the pathway laid out for their child by the ideology in any way at all.

TERF is such a silly term – and the way it is flung around reminds me of the immature name calling which (in a more dignified former time) was restricted to the schoolyard. Yet these days, supposed adults use it freely to vilify anyone who disagrees with them, in an attempt to disguise the fact that they have no valid or rational arguments to present to support their position.

So much of the discourse of trans activists is so childish that it is tempting to simply ignore it. For example, we have the use of euphemistic baby talk such as “top surgery” (for mastectomies and breast implants), and “bottom surgery” (for genital surgeries) in place of the correct medical terms. Not to mention a variety of irresponsible, histrionic pronouncements, such as the claims that being “misgendered” or prevented from competing in sports competitions set aside for the opposite sex, may cause gender questioning kids to quite literally die.

The need to manage our distressed teen offspring, who have an intense desire to permanently alter their bodies in the name of an ideology, does at times become a bit overwhelming. So I confess that we parents do allow ourselves the occasional giggle at some of the more bizarre pronouncements of our adversaries, which provides much needed comedic relief. The solemn assertion that there is such a thing as a female penis is undoubtedly my personal favourite.

However, there are very many activists who issue the most vile, offensive insults and threats against those they consider to be TERFs . Feminist Meghan Murphy suggests that the term TERF is not just a slur, it is hate speech. I tend to agree.

In the current political climate, it appears this behaviour can occur with impunity. The use of the term TERF, accompanied by insults or threats of violence, is enabled or supported by institutions such as universitieslocal councils and even libraries. Needless to say, none of this is in any way funny.

It is also true to say that, because of the frightening power that this movement seems to have somehow gained over society, accusations of being a TERF often achieve the desired effect of silencing critics.

Recently, however, something has changed. Activists are losing access to one of their favourite silencing tactics. People critical of gender ideology are reclaiming the term TERF. After the Chapelle Netflix special, #TeamTERF began trending on Twitter. You can now buy feminist t-shirts emblazoned with the phrase. Others have come up with much improved versions of the acronym such as the delightful “Tired of Explaining Reality to Fools”.

We also have TRE (Trans Rational Educated) Voices, a brave, no holds barred cry for sanity with regards to child and youth transition from trans people themselves.

Well, we parents would also like a piece of the action. People within our networks have come up with much needed improvements to the term TERF. We already have Trans Educated Rational Parents (TERPS).

Now it is time for us to embrace the term TERF, to repackage it and to use it with pride. Mums (and indeed all adult human females who fight gender ideology) are “Trans Educated Rational Females” and Dads are “Trans Educated Rational Fathers”.

We parents often joke that we have PhDs in gender ideology, and in what passes for “medicine” in the care of gender questioning kids. We have educated ourselves extensively in the service of helping our beloved kids. We have read the studies. We have talked to the experts. We are clear that there are only two sexes, and that it is not possible to change sex. We know that no one is “born in the wrong body”. We understand that there is a social contagion going on. We know there is no evidence base for the practice of transitioning children and young people being beneficial in the long term.

Once educated, we then proceed to act rationally. We attempt (often against the odds) to guide our kids, to nurture them into adults who will be happy with their natural sexed bodies, un-mutilated and un-medicated. We seek to obtain help for their many issues (anxiety, ADHD, autism, depression, eating disorders, internalized homophobia) before considering drastic permanent steps. We refuse to be coerced by activist tactics such as exaggerating the risk of suicide, or pretending that there is evidence that transition will be beneficial in the long term for our kids.

So next time I am called a TERF for questioning gender ideology or attempting to care for my child, I will inform the name-caller what the term really means and thank them for the compliment. I suggest others begin to do the same.

Still No Deaths From Omicron: Americans Are Getting On With Their Lives Despite Unhinged Media Frenzy

The pandemic was a hoax. The American people have had it.

WATCH: Biden laughs and walks away when asked about his “responsibility” for COVID deaths.

Still No Deaths From Omicron, And Americans Are Getting On With Their Lives

By Jordan Boyd The Federalist, December 14, 2021:

Americans are returning to normal despite the media’s attempts to drum up alarm over the supposedly ‘highly transmissible’ Omicron variant of COVID-19.

Americans are returning to normal despite the corporate media’s attempts to drum up alarm over the supposedly “highly transmissible” Omicron variant of COVID-19.

While corporate media outlets panicked and revived permanent pandemic narratives and talk of more lockdowns, a new poll from CBS News and YouGov found that of 1,731 people surveyed, 81 percent said they have not rearranged plans because of the Omicron variant or the hype surrounding it. In fact, a majority said they still plan to keep their normal holiday traditions and routines. Sixty-eight percent still plan to “gather with friends and family,” 64 percent said they will do their Christmas shopping in person, and 52 percent said they will eat in a restaurant.

Only 17 percent of those surveyed said they were “very concerned about Omicron,” while about 42 percent said they were not concerned at all about Omicron despite the initial media and bureaucracy-induced panic about it.

These Americans’ thoughts on Omicron are validated by the data. As it turns out, not one single COVID-19-related death in the U.S. from Dec. 1-8 was found to be caused by the Omicron variant. As of Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that of the 43 people infected with the Omicron strain of COVID, most cases manifested only mild symptoms such as “a cough, fatigue, and congestion or a runny nose.”

The CDC report also found that “one individual, who was vaccinated, required a brief hospital stay” and that a majority of cases, 79 percent, were in fully vaccinated individuals.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control’s measures of Omicron produced similar results in a report released Sunday.

“There have been no Omicron-related deaths reported thus far,” the European health agency claimed, noting that most cases of Omicron-related COVID presented as “either asymptomatic or mild.”

Biden. You suck.

For the first time since I became an extremely proud American citizen on February 26, 2003, I am ashamed of what my adopted country has become. Let me explain before you get upset at me!

First, I am proud to be an American patriot. I love my Constitutional Republic and the constitution which I think, after the Bible, is the most amazing document ever written by man. I even was proud during the King Obama dictatorship years although I never understood how Americans elected him. He is a lowdown, testosterone challenged traitor. He led this country down a dangerous slippery slope that the election of My President, Donald J Trump stopped in its filthy tracks.

Then for four years I was ecstatic as my country grew in pride and strength. The economy boomed – every single aspect of it. Unemployment of every ethnic group was at its lowest as individual wealth and savings were at a high. Everything was incredible. We were the most powerful nation in the world as President Trump did his thing – making America great. Surely the role of every president who lives his country.

Then in 2020 along came a fraudulent, stolen election and we end up with a decrepit, mentally deficient, criminal, pervert, corrupt Commie loving so called president who from day one has run this country as if it is a communist nation where the government has all the power and we the people are serfs.

In a short 11 months the Democrats have taken this nation and reduced it to almost a third world nation status. It has destroyed our economy. It is destroying the middle class. It is trying really hard to destroy our fossil fuel industry. It is destroying education. It is destroying our military. It is destroying our law enforcement. It has weakened us to the degree that we are actually at great risk of our security as a nation. It has destroyed our secure borders. It has destroyed our faith in the election system. It has destroyed our infrastructure like the supply chain. It has badly affected black employment and ruining all the gains minorities mad in the preceding 4 years. it has made us a laughing stock to our enemies who perceive us as weak and pathetic. We see this with Russia, China and Iran who are running rampant as they take advantage of our country as this administration attempts to bring us to our knees.

Let’s be honest. The list above is short and just a brief synopsis of the evil activities this administration has done in a very short time. The Build Back Better Bill they are trying to pass will be the final nail in our coffin if passed as is. This will be a 5 Trillion dollar Socialist program that will keep growing as many of the programs planned will never be stopped. Ever. It must never be passed but to do that Joe Manchin from Virginia is going to have to grow a huge sets of testes and vote against it. If he doesn’t his home state of Virginia will have a massive economic downfall as will the USA. It’s all on him.

How sad that our countries future is on the back on one man, a Democrat. He can make or break it with his vote. Republicans, all 50, will be voting against it so without Manchins vote it will pass.

I am not running around like a headless chicken or yelling the sky is falling. Trust me all of you. If this Bill passes it will be the destruction of everything this country ever stood for and the end of our self rule. It’s simple as that.

For my Virginian readers – GET UP AND TELL MANCHIN TO VOTE NO. TELL HIM IN NO UNCERTAIN TONE. VOTE NO!

So going back to my original paragraph I am ashamed that we Americans have been so fooled and been so careless with our freedoms and liberties. That we have allowed this country to have got here. That we have not put a stop to the extremist lunacy of the left. That we have acted like cowards and ensured that our founding fathers are rolling in their graves. That we have allowed such disdain for our armed forces and law enforcement. That we have allowed the sentiment that criminals are more worthy than victims. That our citizenship is so worthless.

2022 will give us a chance to recoup and prevent any more damage to our beloved country.

Ensure everyone you know – including you all – vote. Do the right thing for my beloved country. Your country. Destroy the New Socialist Democrat Party. Annihilate it.

If we do not then the only other alternative will be civil war.

Your choice America. Will you stand up now while we still can and make the changes needed. Move our country to the center or right.

I feel the change!! We can do this.

QUESTION: Is it time to reinstate universal IQ testing for every student in America?

One of our readers named Janine posted the following comment to one of our columns:

I grew up in the 70s. One day all the black husbands and fathers of the family i grew up with just left. They went to just hang out with their friends, or do drugs or violence. My dad was the only father and husband left on our street before we moved to rural area. He did his best to help the other families like cutting their grass and fixing cars and helping the mothers and children with food. They did just leave. The father not allowed in the home restrictions was only 5 years during the 60s and ended in 1968. You can check the history. A black woman petitioned to end those restrictions. The only thing black men has ever petition for is to have access to white women during the same time. You have listened to black men lies. They are only with black women for as long as it benefit[s] them. When they make more money, they partner with white and other women, who are not black. The black race is in the condition solely because of black men, not welfare, not white people or any women; Just like other people are in the condition they are in because of the men of their people.

I never knew they stop giving IQ test[s] in school. Maybe you don’t know when they’re being administered. That is how they place students in advance classes or special Ed. They must be tested.

After reading her comment I felt compelled to write about Intelligent Quotient (IQ) testing and their impact on children in America.

Multiple IQ tests are still available and used, however they are not universally given to every student. Parents can request an official IQ test for their child from a licensed psychologist or a school psychologist. Click here to learn where someone can request to take an Official Intelligence Test.

In a February 8th, 1984 Education Week column titled “Court Finds I.Q. Tests Racially Biased for Black Pupils’ Placement” Susan G. Foster wrote:

In what some are terming a landmark decision, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit late last month upheld a lower-court ruling that prohibits California school districts from using iq tests to evaluate black students for placement in special-education classes on the grounds that the tests are culturally biased.

In a Washington Post July 6th, 1987 article titled “IQ Tests Restricted by Race Jay Mathews noted:

Unbeknownst to her [Mary Amaya the mother of then 14-year old Demond Crawford] and most other Californians, a lengthy national debate over intelligence tests in public schools had just ended in the nation’s most populous state, and the anti-test forces had won.

Henceforth, no black child in California could be given a state-administered intelligence test, no matter how severe the student’s academic problems. Such tests were racially and culturally biased, U.S. District Court Judge Robert F. Peckham had ruled in 1979. After losing in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year, the state agreed not to give any of the 17 banned IQ (intelligence quotient) tests to blacks. [Emphasis added]

What is the Larry P. v. Riles case and how did it fundamentally transform IQ testing?

According to Disability Rights California:

The Larry P. v. Riles (Larry P.) case was filed in 1971 when five African-American children who had been placed in special education classes for the “educable mentally retarded” (EMR) in the San Francisco Unified School District filed suit in the Federal District Court of Northern California claiming that they had been wrongly placed in the EMR classes based on their performance on intelligence tests that were racially biased and discriminatory.  [Larry P. v. Riles, 495 F. Supp. 926 (N.D. Cal. 1979).] The suit also claimed that a disproportionate total number of African-American students were placed in EMR classes compared to the number of African-American students in the school system.

The Court decided in favor of the students, and the District was prohibited from using IQ tests to identify or place African-American students in EMR-type classes. The Decision was upheld on appeal in 1984.  [Larry P. v. Riles, 793 F.2d 969 (9th Cir. 1984).] The Court expanded its ruling in the case by banning the use of IQ testing for all African-American students who have been referred for special education services.

The federal district court case of Crawford v. Honig prompted a reexamination of the rights of multicultural children in special education.  This case has challenged the Larry P. ruling banning the use of IQ tests for African-American children and has, preliminarily, resulted in three African-American children being allowed to take IQ tests because their parents wish to have them do so. After the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Crawford, CDE issued a Legal Advisory in October 1994, continuing the directive which banned IQ testing. [See Crawford v. Honig, 37 F.3d 485 (9th Cir. 1994).]

QUESTION: Was this decision the right one for multicultural children in California and beyond?

Should IQ Testing be required of all students in America?

I received an email linking to a 2014 op-ed published on American Renaissance titled “Ten Percent is Not Enough.” The op-ed states:

The black/white experiment has failed.

[ … ]

Some argue it’s a problem of “culture,” as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame “white privilege.” But since 1965, when the elites opened America’s doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India–people who are not white, not rich, and not “connected”–have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black “youths” are committing half the country’s violent crime–crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it, that has nothing to do with poverty.

The experiment has failed. Not because of culture, or white privilege, or racism. The fundamental problem is that white people and black people are different. They differ intellectually and temperamentally. These differences result in permanent social incompatibility.

Read more.

Is there a “permanent social incompatibility” between blacks and other ethnicities? Are blacks different intellectually and temperamentally?

The answer can be found in a study done in 1994. Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray in their seminal book on cognitive ability The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life state,

“The question is how to redistribute in ways that increase the chances for people at the bottom of society to take control of their lives, to be engaged meaningfully in their communities, and to find valued places for themselves.”

Herrnstein and Murray found,

Ethnic differences in higher education, occupations, and wages are strikingly diminished after controlling for IQ. Often they vanish. In this sense, America has equalized these central indicators of social success.

Herrnstein and Murray asked,

“What are the odds that a black or Latino with an IQ of 103 – the average IQ of all high school graduates – completed high school? The answer is that a youngster from either minority group had a higher probability of graduating from high school than a white, if all of them had IQs of 103: The odds were 93 percent and 91 percent for blacks and Latinos respectively, compared to 89 percent for whites.

Herrnstein and Murray concluded:

  • We have tried to point out that a small segment of the population accounts for such a large proportion of those [social] problems. To the extent that the [social] problems of this small segment are susceptible to social-engineering solutions at all, should be highly targeted.
  • The vast majority of Americans can run their own lives just fine, and [public] policy should above all be constructed so that it permits them to do so.
  • Much of the policy toward the disadvantaged starts from the premise that interventions can make up for genetic or environmental disadvantages, and that premise is overly optimistic.
  • Cognitive ability, so desperately denied for so long, can best be handled – can only be handled – by a return to individualism.
  • Cognitive partitioning will continue. It cannot be stopped, because the forces driving it cannot be stopped.
  • Americans can choose to preserve a society in which every citizen has access to the central satisfactions of life. Its people can, through an interweaving of choice and responsibility, create valued places for themselves in their worlds.

Herrnstein and Murray found,

Inequality of endowments, including intelligence, is a reality.

[ … ]

Trying to pretend that inequality does not really exist has led to disaster. Trying to eradicate inequality with artificially manufactured outcomes has led to disaster. It is time for America once again to try living with inequality, as life is lived: understanding that each human being has strengths and weaknesses, qualities to admire and qualities we do not admire, competencies and in-competencies,  assets and debits; that the success of each human life is not measured externally but internally; that of all the rewards we can confer on each other, the most precious is a place as a valued fellow citizen.

Finally, Herrnstein and Murray wrote,

“Of all the uncomfortable topics we have explored, a pair of the most uncomfortable ones are that a society with a higher mean IQ is also likely to be a society with fewer social ills and brighter economic prospects, and that the most effective way to raise the IQ of a society is for smarter women to have higher birth rates than duller women.

Shocking words in 1994 and indeed even more so today. Is it time to have a national public debate on cognitive abilities?

The key factor in setting goals is IQ. Is it time to reintroduce IQ testing for all students?

PODCAST: The Meaning of Christmas

NOTE: I originally wrote this piece back in 2013. I was pleased with its reception. I think it makes an important point about Christmas. I also believe it would make a great TV show for the season. Let me know what you think. – TB


He arose in the morning groggy and disoriented. He didn’t know where he was or recognized the surroundings. It was a small room, very neat and clean, with a sofa, desk, and big bed. Anyone would recognize it as a hotel with all of the amenities. He had no memory of how he had gotten there. Sunlight peeked between the curtains. The television was playing a Christmas gala, complete with classic holiday music. The entertainment was broken up by the occasional commercial where announcers were promoting everything from toys to clothes, jewels, and automobiles. Each announcer admonished viewers to hurry as there was just one day until Christmas.

“Christmas? Where am I, where have I been?”

He slowly stood up and went over to the window and opened the curtains to look outside where the grass and roads were covered with a thin layer of snow. It was cold, but not frigid. People could be seen walking on the streets carrying packages, cars moved quickly along a boulevard, and pine trees were adorned with tinsel, bulbs and lights. He didn’t recognize any of it which confused matters further.

He washed himself in the bathroom and then spotted some clothes neatly folded on the sofa, complete with shoes and socks. The clothes fit remarkably well. The shoes, which were actually a set of leather and rubber boots, also fit comfortably. He combed his hair before putting on the jacket and wool cap hanging on the chair at the desk. He unlocked the door and stepped outside into the cold air and surveyed the area around the hotel. Nothing looked familiar; did Europe look like this?

A woman dressed in a heavy black coat passed by him and greeted him good morning.

It was English, but the accent wasn’t recognizable. He replied, “Good morning,” to the woman who hurried away before any other questions could be asked.

He watched her hurry down the street heading towards a large building where several cars were already parked. A sign in front read, “Springdale Town Mall.” He was curious and thought people at the building might hold some answers. So He followed the woman to the mall, crossing the street carefully as it was busy with vehicles. The traffic lights seemed strange to Him, as well as the lines on the street, along with the the commotion of the cars and their horns. As He approached the entrance to the mall, He could hear the sounds of Christmas music coming from the mall’s PA system in the parking lot. In between songs, announcers touted their products and admonished shoppers there was just one more day until Christmas. He really didn’t grasp what was going on.

He entered the mall which was the largest structure He had ever seen. Inside was a cavernous multitude of lights, more music, and thousands of people circulating. There seemed to be hundreds of shops offering a variety of wares; toys, cutlery, sporting goods, jewelry, and many other goods. Virtually all had signs in their windows promoting sales and reminding shoppers there was now less than a day to Christmas. He paused by an electronic store where many television sets were displaying Christmas shows. The shows were mesmerizing and He became somewhat intoxicated by the sights and sounds emanating from the televisions.

He wandered the mall examining the various stores carefully. Each was decorated in red and green colors, with wreaths, and the smell of pine and sweet candy hung in the air. Electric lights, snowmen, and miniature railroads offered animation. Gifts were wrapped in a special type of green and red paper and ribbons. All in all, it was a feeding frenzy of shopping. He wondered what the purpose of all this activity. There were several signs mentioning “Christmas,” but He didn’t make the connection.

There was the smell of food in the air which caused His stomach to growl in hunger. He passed the mall’s Food Court which featured several restaurants offering a variety of strange looking ethnic foods. He watched cooks prepare Japanese sushi and Chinese cuisine, none of which He recognized as something edible. The Mexican restaurant smelled of spicy hot peppers. The only restaurants which somehow resembled familiar food was the Italian restaurant, although He balked at pizza, and the Greek restaurant featuring gyros and souvlakis, both offered on pita bread.

He asked the clerk for a gyro as it appeared to be made of lamb. The young clerk prepared the meal accordingly, complete with French Fries and a cola drink.

“That will be $5 for the gyro special,” she said.

He looked perplexed by her request but quickly figured she was asking for money of which He had none. He tapped his trousers with his hand and heard the distinct click of metal. He reached inside his pocket where He retrieved some coins valued at $2 each. “Will you take these?” He asked.

The clerk took three of them and presented him with a $1 bill saying, “Here is your change. Thank you. Next!…”

He walked away from the restaurant with his tray and found an empty table to sit and eat. He studied the $1 bill carefully. He had never seen paper money before and didn’t recognize Washington’s portrait. He ate the gyro hungrily. He enjoyed the taste of cooked lamb as well as the pita bread. The French Fries seemed peculiar to him though. He picked one up and inspected it carefully. Nearby at other tables, people were eating them. He then broke one in half and tasted it, and it was good, even though He didn’t know what it was. “A French Fry? Hmm…,” and He ate the rest. He examined the cola drink suspiciously. He took a sip and found the taste medicinal in nature, and the bubbles tickled His nose. Spotting a nearby water fountain, He emptied the cola down its drain and replaced it with water which tasted remarkably clean to Him.

He saw others dumping the trash from their trays into the garbage and followed suit. The meal had served its purpose and He felt refreshed. He then returned to wandering around the mall. The music and hubbub was beginning to give Him a small headache.

It was mid afternoon when He came to the center of the mall where he sat at a bench on the second floor. He marveled at the immensity of the mall and as He looked down to the bottom floor He discovered a long line of children waiting for someone named “Santa Claus.” Dozens of children waited patiently to sit with a fat man dressed in a red and white costume. He assumed the man was elderly as he wore a white beard with matching color hair.

An elderly woman came and sat on the bench to rest her feet. She was loaded with several packages and looked tired from her trek around the mall.

“Excuse me, but who is that man down there?” He innocently asked the woman.

She looked down to see the object of His attention.

“Are you kidding me?” she said, “It’s Santa Claus and his elves talking to the kids of course.”

He said, “I’m sorry, I am not from around here. What is a Santa Claus?”

She looked at him inquisitively but gave him the benefit of doubt. “He is actually called by many names, St. Nicholas, Kris Kringle, and many others around the world. He is considered the patron saint of Christmas and is best known for delivering presents to children on Christmas.”

“Christmas, there is that name again,” He thought.

He watched the children one-by-one visit with the old gentleman. Some appeared timid and scared, others enjoyed a good conversation with the man, others were loud and animated, demanding certain presents on Christmas Day. It was all rather unclear as to the purpose of the meeting with Santa other than it was an outlet to promote the purchase of more gifts. He was amazed by the length of the never-ending line and requests for more gifts.

The greed and opulence of the season was too much for him to stomach any longer. He took his leave of the mall wanting to head back to the safety of the hotel room. Unfortunately, He became a bit disoriented and couldn’t find the same door from which He entered, and exited on the opposite end of the mall where nothing looked familiar.

He had spent considerable time at the mall and it was now late afternoon with long shadows and the sun beginning to set. All He could see were rows of neat wooden homes adjacent to the mall. He was unfamiliar with the architecture and wanted to take a closer look. He entered a subdivision and was amazed how orderly the houses were aligned and well maintained.

As the sun set, decorative lights were switched on and lit up the houses and the adjacent trees and shrubbery. Various statues of snowmen, Santa Claus, and angels were also lit and music could be heard in the air. There also seemed to be reindeer everywhere; on top of houses, pulling sleighs, or metallic statues on front lawns, some were animated appearing to be grazing. In was very reminiscent of the storefronts in the mall.

He walked several blocks in amazement as the houses turned darkness into light. Other people also walked the neighborhood in order to see the decorations. Cars began to enter the streets where they moved slowly so parents and children could admire the decorations. As pleasant as this all ways, He was at a loss as to what it all meant.

As He exited the neighborhood, He was presented with two large structures, one with a crucifix atop it, and another with the Star of David. He was appalled by the crucifix and began to wonder if people still practiced the tortuous custom. The large cross stopped Him in his tracks and He began to tremble. He noticed the other structure bore the Shield of David, a symbol He was familiar with through Judaism.

It was nighttime now and both buildings were active with people, the Temple celebrating a Bar Mitzvah, and the Church preparing to celebrate Christmas mass. Being more familiar with the Shield of David, He approached the Temple, where people were exiting for the evening. Still inside was the rabbi who was bidding goodnight to the attendees. He worked his way to the rabbi, a middle aged man who appeared to be of good nature.

He said, “Rabbi, I am a stranger to this area. As I have walked around the village I notice there is a fascination with ‘Christmas’ here. I would like to know more.”

The Rabbi smiled and said, “Well stranger, you are actually in a good place to learn. I would like to sit down and tell you more, but the hour is late and I have another appointment. However, I recommend you visit the church next door where they are getting ready to celebrate Christmas. I am confident they will tell you the full story tonight.”

He took his leave of the rabbi, who locked the Temple after He exited. Many people were entering the house of the crucifix, men, women and children. As it appeared to be safe, He overcame his timidity and reluctantly approached the church. At the door, He was warmly welcomed by greeters. The inside appeared to be a place for religious retreats, with several rows of pews, and an altar at the front.

As the service began, the congregation rose to its feet and began to sing, accompanied by an organ. He was startled by this, but found the music strangely comforting. He looked about and saw everyone singing in unison, along with a choir which sang as one. The pomp and circumstance was impressive. He looked on in horror as a small boy walked slowly down the center aisle carrying another crucifix with an effigy of a person nailed to it. The boy proudly presented the cross at the front of the congregation before placing it in a stand. He was bewildered by the display and was prepared to turn and run, but something inside him told him to stand his ground. After the entrance of the clergy, the music stopped and everyone returned to their seats.

The minister welcomed everyone to the evening’s Christmas celebration. This was followed by a sweet celebration enacted by the children of the church who were dressed in colorful costumes. The minister narrated the story of the birth of Christ and the children acted out the story. He listened intently. He heard the names of Joseph and Mary, which were well known to him, as well as a place called Galilee. He listened to their story of the birth of their savior. Aside from the shiny costumes and some obvious literary liberties, it was a story He knew well, and his spirits perked up noticeably. He was no longer afraid but felt quite at home.

After the play, the minister asked all first time visitors to rise and be recognized. One-by-one he welcomed each visitor, asking who they were and where they were from. The minister finally asked the stranger to introduce himself.

“I am known as Jesus of Nazareth,” He said.

The minister thought He was mocking the congregation and quickly confronted the stranger. Anger was in the minister’s eyes but before he could utter a harsh word, He said, “I am a stranger to this area,” and raised his hand in peace to shake the minister’s.

It was only then the minister saw the scars from the crucifixion. There was something in the stranger’s demeanor and eyes that made him realize he was now in the presence of something special. The minister froze until He placed his hands on him in comfort. The minister smiled and knelt to his knees. The congregation didn’t quite comprehend the situation, but followed the minister’s lead and knelt.

He said, “Please rise, you are all my children. I’m not sure why I was sent here but I believe it has something to do with the meaning of Christmas, something I didn’t quite understand until I witnessed your pageant.”

“Yes, this is your birthday, your eminence,” the minister replied.

“I have been among you this day and have witnessed many things, most of which I do not understand, particularly the greed of this day. I hope they are not using this day to celebrate such a weakness.”

The minister was embarrassed, “I am afraid a lot of people have forgotten its purpose. It is not about shopping, it’s about You.”

“In my time, we celebrated birthdays by the breaking of the bread. We didn’t have opulent presents. Instead, we offered our love, fellowship, and trust to others. If this is truly my Birthday, let us celebrate likewise,” and loafs of bread appeared in His hands.

Jesus moved to the altar and broke the bread into small pieces for everyone to consume. The minister assisted by pouring wine.

“Here, eat and drink. Do this for the remembrance of Me. My message is simple: I love you unconditionally. You may not believe in me, but have confidence that I love you. Do not dwell in hate. Practice love and do unto others as you would have others do unto you. It’s really not that difficult, is it?.”

As the last morsel of bread was consumed and wine drunk, He turned and disappeared into the ether with the exclamation, “Remember!”
