18-Year Old Kyle Rittenhouse Launches The Media Accountability Project [TMAP]

“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” ― Thomas Jefferson

MEDIA BIAS: The bias of journalists, news producers and social media overseers within the mass and social media in the selection of which events and stories that are reported or not reported and how they are covered or not covered. Government influence, including overt and covert censorship of individuals, organizations and political movements.

I have heard many complain about how the media, from the legacy to social media, have become propagandists. I have heard the media called by both Democrats and Republicans biased. I have seen social media censor its members. I have seen many denigrated by the media and social media from truck drivers in Canada, to patriots at the January 6th peaceful protest in Washington, D.C., to presidents, to ordinary citizens. Today publishing myths has replaced telling the truth.

Seeing how the media has become a tool for pushing government propaganda, many ask what happened to First Amendment and civil liberties watchdogs like: the ACLU, NAACP and Southern Poverty Law Center?

Answer: They have all gone “woke.”

So who has actually decided to do something about it? An 18-year old named Kyle Rittenhouse.

Kyle has launched The Media Accountability Project (TMAP).

The TMAP website homepage quotes Malcolm X,

“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power.”

According to the TMAP website,

The Media Accountability Project “TMAP” is the official fundraising vehicle for helping Kyle Rittenhouse hold the worst offenders in our activist media accountable in court.

In the long term, we will provide material support and promote the important work being done by independent journalists who are committed to the truth.

Here are a few of the videos of Kyle being interviewed on the website:

The Bottom Line

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle.”

Fast forward to 2022 and we now see that there are many “polluted vehicles” including: news broadcasts, magazines, newspapers, blogs, social media sites and last but not least the corporate owned media. Clearly it is time to expose this pollution, which is much worse than green house gasses, in the damage it has done to mankind.

During the interview below between Kyle and Tucker Carlson the question was asked: Why hasn’t anyone done this before?

Our answer to Kyle and Tucker’s question is: Journalists are no longer holding governments, corporations, politicians, individuals and political groups accountable.

Journalist are not longer watchdogs, rather they are lapdogs.

Journalism is dead, replaced by the “corporate media” whose only interest is to make money while pushing their collectivist myths.

Journalists are afraid. Journalists fear that anyone who tries to expose the media and its biases, like Project Veritas, then become a target of the legacy and social media hierarchy. The journalist may lose his or her job for actually holding government accountable and telling the facts and truth.

If the media can print, report on and push the myth of Russian collusion in the 2016 election, over and over again about a sitting president, then who is safe from “lapdog journalists” and “media demagogues”?

It seems this 18-year old is fearless, like he was on the streets defending minority businesses and himself from armed insurgents.

We welcome Kyle to the fight. And a fight it is. You see many still believe the legacy media’s lies and myths. Myths like climate change, vaccine mandates are necessary to protest us all, that January 6th was the real insurrection and that Biden and Democrats didn’t cheat during the 2020 elections.

As German Nazi politician who was the Gauleiter of Berlin and chief propagandist for the Nazi Party Joseph Goebbels said,

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Today the enemy of the state is anyone who tells the truth about the legacy and social media, about the negative impacts of getting jabbed and the incompetency of Biden administration.

Gird your loins, Kyle and we won’t stop contesting the uncontested absurdities of our government, media and social media platforms. Whether in the court room or public square we will be truthful.

You see we believe that “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”

Let liberty thrive and justice be done.

Biden Slammed Over Press Conference On Russian Invasion: ‘The Defining Image Of His Failed Presidency’

Another disastrous press conference from our utterly pathetic POTUS.  Taiwan is next. Buckle up folks.

Biden Slammed Over Press Conference On Russian Invasion: ‘The Defining Image Of His Failed Presidency’

By Daily Wire, February 22, 2022

Democrat President Joe Biden was slammed on Tuesday over remarks that he made during a press conference on Russia’s invasion into Ukraine and his subsequent refusal to answer questions from the media.

The negative comments toward Biden come as critics blame him for the situation that is unfolding in Ukraine because of the administration’s disastrous pullout from Afghanistan, which signaled weakness, and the administration’s decision to lift sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Notable criticisms of Biden’s press conference performance included:

  • Kayleigh McEnany, former WH press secretary: “Biden turns his back to the American People, taking no questions after warning about the “COSTS” Americans should be prepared to pay because of the Russia invasion he paved the way for!”
  • Jake Schneider, RNC: “Once again, Biden turns his back on the press and shuffles away in what has become the defining image of his failed presidency.”
  • House Judiciary GOP: “Per usual, Joe Biden takes no questions. Weak.”
  • Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR): “President Biden’s weak sanctions aren’t even half measures—they’re quarter measures.”
  • Marshall Billingslea, former Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing at the Treasury Department: “Today @POTUS announced sanctions on just 2 banks, one of which — VEB — has been under select restrictions since 2014. In terms of sovereign debt, the US already has certain prohibitions in place since 2019, & expanded in 2021. No oligarchs or Russian officials targeted today. For those who are interested, here is the 2014 action on VEB and the Biden Admin’s own expanded sanctions on sovereign debt, already in place since April 2021. Not much bark today, and very little bite. This will not deter Putin.”
  • Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL): “Joe Biden’s address about Ukraine was disgraceful. The sanctions that he announced might have been good 2 months ago, but not now. America, let’s be very clear… Putin is happy Joe Biden is @POTUS ! This is so sad for our nation and our allies.”
  • Mark Meadows, former WH COS: “Putin is walking all over America and our allies because he sees weakness at the top. Period. We are a country in need of strong leadership. And right now, the sad truth is we don’t have it.”
  • Benny Johnson, political commentator: “Biden waddles away from reporters like it’s an Olympic sport as they yell questions on his Ukraine calamity.”
  • Stephen L. Miller, political commentator: “Biden walks away without taking questions.” He added,  “Journalists are willing props for this president and nothing else.”
  • Rita Panahi, political commentator: “Familiar scene. But thank god there’ll be no mean tweets today.”
  • Ronna McDaniel, RNC Chairwoman: “Biden claims he predicted every single thing Putin has done. If he saw it coming… then he failed to stop it.”
  • Monica Crowley, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury: “Watching Biden speak is like watching a little old lady cross an icy street.”

By James Gordon For Dailymail.com, 21 February 2022 |

Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse plans to take aim at the people and organizations who called him a ‘murderer’, a ‘white supremacist’ among other things in the run up to his trial and subsequent acquittal.

Rittenhouse killed two men and wounded a third during confrontations amid anti-police protests in Kenosha in August 2020. He testified that he acted in self-defense.

Last November, the 18-year-old was found not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide and other charges, and walked out of court a free man.

Speaking on Tucker Carlson on Fox News on Monday night, Rittenhouse said he wanted to hold major media and entertainment figures ‘accountable’ noting that he had talk show host Whoopi Goldberg in his sights.

‘We are looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg is on the list. She called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that, and there’s others,’ Rittenhouse told Carlson.
Rittenhouse said he was going to set up The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the’ lies that were told about him’

Rittenhouse said he was going to set up The Media Accountability Project as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the’ lies that were told about him’

He also revealed that Cenk Uygur the founder of the Young Turks show is on his scope adding that he ‘continues to call me a ‘murderer.”

The Young Turks show is a liberal and left-wing news commentary show on YouTube that additionally appears on selected television channels.

‘What about the people who called you a white supremacist? It makes it pretty hard to get a job for the rest of your life if you are a white supremacist. Will you be responding to them?’ Carlson asked.

‘Absolutely. We’re going to hold everybody who lied about me accountable, such as everybody who lied called me a White supremacist,’ Rittenhouse said in response. ‘They’re all going to be held accountable. And we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.’

Rittenhouse refused to be drawn on who else may come under fire from him but there may end up being quite a list including the President of the United States, Joe Biden.

Two months before Biden was elected president, he criticized then-President Trump for refusing to condemn people who are against the Black Lives Matter riots as ‘white supremacists.’

The tweet from the then-candidate included an image from a video clip of Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shooting.

‘There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night,’ Biden tweeted in September 2020.

After a jury determined that Rittenhouse did not act with ‘utter disregard for human life’ when he shot the two protesters, Biden delicately weighed in on the verdict – but walk back on his pre-election Tweet.

‘While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken.

‘I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy.’

At the time, Rittenhouse’s lawyer, Mark Richards, said he was dismayed by Biden’s depiction of him as a white supremacist.

‘I’ve never had a case, I don’t think I ever will, where within two days or three days of one another, you know, the President and the presidential candidate comment on it. And both of them had such different beliefs,’ Richards said.

‘President Biden said some things, I think are so incorrect and untrue — he is not a white supremacist. I’m glad that he at least respects the jury verdict.”

NBA superstar LeBron James also accused Rittenhouse of pretending to cry after the teen broke down on the stand during his double murder trial.

In response to the video of him sobbing as he claimed self-defense for killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber in 2020, James tweeted, ‘What tears?????’

‘I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.’

In December, Rittenhouse fired back at LeBron saying: ‘I was really p****d off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know what, f*** you, LeBron.’

Islamic State urges Muslims in the U.S. to join ‘ISIS North America’

Emboldened by the weakness and wrongheadedness of Biden’s handlers, jihads are becoming more aggressive and confident everywhere.

ISIS Supporters in the United States Urged to Join ‘ISIS North America

by Bridget Johnson, Homeland Security Today, February 21, 2022:

A video posted online urges followers of the Islamic State to help form a province of the terror group in the United States called ISIS North America.

The video is dated “new 2022” in the first frame and was posted on a file-sharing site this month. It consists of simple white English-language writing on a black background, instead of being dressed up with images of ISIS battles or adherents as in many videos with higher production value associated with the terror group….

“To those who want to try,” it begins with an ISIS flag as a nasheed plays. “To my brothers following in the path of the Khilafa in America I urge you to come join our group.”

“This new group will operate in the United States to surprise the murtad in their own lands,” the video continues. The wording suggests that the group intends to target Muslims seen as turning their back on ISIS’ interpretation of Islam — how the terror group defines apostasy — instead of the general population, referred to as kuffar or disbelievers.

“The name of this group will be named ISIS-NA (Islamic State of Iraq & Sham – North America),” the video states. It then shows imaginings of the Nevada and California flags as “Flag of Tawheed” — the concept of oneness in Islam and why ISIS followers make the hand gesture of raising a single index finger….

“Do not send this video anywhere else as this will alert the kuffar. Do not join if you aren’t commited [sic] to our organization and do not join to make jokes, we will trace every keylog you make if you do this,” it continues.

“My dear brother or sister, may Allah grant you good health and happiness for watching this video. Spread the word about this organization to those who are trustful but be careful with doing so,” the video cautions. “May Allah grant this organization with success and may Allah grant us Jannah [paradise].”…

TAKE ACTION: Tell Your Florida State Representatives to Teach Children the Truth about Communism!

Over a quarter of Americans (26%) support the “gradual elimination of a capitalist system in favor of a more socialist system. Thirty percent of younger Americans (Gen Z) have a favorable view of Marxism. More than one-in-three members (38%) of Gen Z hope Joe Biden ‘pursues socialist policies over capitalist ones’ if elected.” Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation

The Christian Family Coalition Florida in an email titled “Teach the truth of communism!” wrote:

On Thursday, February 24th, the Florida House will debate and vote on HB-395. 

The bill requires the Governor to annually issue a proclamation designating November 7 as “Victims of Communism Day” and calls for public schools to suitably observe such day as a day honoring the 100 million people who have fallen victim to communist regimes across the world. The bill also calls for the observance of Victims of Communism Day by public exercise in the State Capitol and elsewhere as designated by the Governor.

Recent studies show that 28-33% of Millennials and Generation Z, support or have a favorable view of Communism and Marxism!

Contact your State Representative!

This should concern all freedom-loving Americans. If we don’t fight back now, government schools will continue to indoctrinate the next generation in this failed system.  Millions of immigrants have already fled this murderous ideology that’s failed every time it’s been practiced.

This legislation requires high school students enrolled in the U.S. Government course to receive at least 45 minutes of instruction on “Victims of Communism Day” on topics of communist dictators and how the victims of communism suffered under these regimes.

Please send a message to your state representative and tell them to vote YES on HB-395!

If Lockdowns and Mandates Failed, Why Are They Still Pushed?


  • In a literature review and meta-analysis of the effects of lockdowns on COVID-19 mortality, researchers revealed lockdowns had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality
  • The Brownstone Institute compiled more than 400 studies showing that lockdowns, restrictions and closures failed to do what was promised
  • A team of 12 researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, the University of Oxford and other institutions outlined key reasons why COVID-19 shot mandates have been counterproductive and harmful
  • COVID-19 injection mandates could lead to reactance and entrenchment, cognitive dissonance, stigma and scapegoating, and distrust
  • If you don’t agree with COVID-19 restrictions and mandates in your area, now is the time to speak out in peaceful protest

Scientists the world over have done a deep dive into the unprecedented lockdowns and injection mandates that characterized the COVID-19 pandemic response. Over and over again, the results confirm what many instinctively knew all along — that these totalitarian schemes didn’t work and may have caused more harm than good.

Despite the writing on the wall, health officials and academics continue to defend the Draconian measures. It’s difficult to admit wrongdoing, especially of this magnitude, but sooner or later it will become widely known that, as Jeffrey Tucker, founder and president of the Brownstone Institute, put it, “these interventions turned a manageable pandemic into a catastrophe.”1

Hundreds of Studies Show Lockdowns Didn’t Work

Public health policies that restrict movement, ban international travel and close schools and businesses, commonly known as lockdowns, were implemented in virtually every country around the globe during the pandemic, beginning in China, then Italy and spreading like wildfire from there.

Simulated computer models conducted by Imperial College London researchers in 2020 suggested that lockdowns would reduce COVID-19 mortality by up to 98%2 — an estimate that had many scholars raising eyebrows, and which did not come to fruition, not even close.

In a literature review and meta-analysis of the effects of lockdowns on COVID-19 mortality, researchers from Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise, Lund University and the Center for Political Studies in Copenhagen, Denmark, revealed lockdowns had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality.

The meta-analysis included 24 studies separated into three groups: lockdown stringency index studies, shelter-in-place order (SIPO) studies and specific non-pharmaceutical intervention (NPI) studies. They found:3

“An analysis of each of these three groups support the conclusion that lockdowns have had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality. More specifically, stringency index studies find that lockdowns in Europe and the United States only reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average.

SIPOs were also ineffective, only reducing COVID-19 mortality by 2.9% on average. Specific NPI studies also find no broad-based evidence of noticeable effects on COVID-19 mortality.”

The Brownstone Institute actually compiled more than 400 studies showing that lockdowns, restrictions and closures failed to do what was promised.4 Among them is a study by Dr. Gilbert Berdine, an associate professor of medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

It used data on daily mortality rates for COVID-19 to track the course of the pandemic in Sweden, New York, Illinois and Texas, which each used different pandemic responses, and has suggested that lockdowns may turn out to be “the greatest policy error of this generation.”5 This isn’t to say that lockdowns had no noticeable effects, however. While they failed to meaningfully reduce COVID-19 deaths, they took a massive toll on other measures of public health:6

“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted. In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

‘Fact Checkers’ Try to Defend Lockdowns

When the Johns Hopkins meta-analysis received some media attention, bringing the dismal results of lockdowns mainstream, “fact checkers” sprung to action to rebut the study.

Among them was the Science Media Centre (SMC),7 variations of which exist in a number of countries, including the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with a reported mission to provide “high-quality scientific information” to journalists. Their mission, as stated on their website, is:8

“To provide, for the benefit of the public and policymakers, accurate and evidence-based information about science and engineering through the media, particularly on controversial and headline news stories when most confusion and misinformation occurs.”

But SMC is not an independent news agency as it claims to be, as it counts among its biggest funders a number of high-level industry players with worldwide agendas, including the Wellcome Trust, GlaxoSmithKline, CropLife International, Sanofi and AstraZeneca.9

Tucker teased out a particularly arrogant commentary in the SMC piece — a comment by Seth Flaxman, an associate professor in the department of computer science at the University of Oxford, who said:10

“Smoking causes cancer, the earth is round, and ordering people to stay at home (the correct definition of lockdown) decreases disease transmission. None of this is controversial among scientists. A study purporting to prove the opposite is almost certain to be fundamentally flawed.”

But categorizing lockdowns as completely without controversy, like the fact that smoking causes cancer, is wrong. Yet, Flaxman’s work is continually cited in defense of lockdowns, even though he has no background in medicine. Tucker wrote:11

“See how this rhetoric works? If you question his claim, you are not a scientist; you are denying the science! … To say that this is not controversial is ridiculous, since such policies had never before been attempted on this scale. Such a policy is not at all like an established causal claim (smoking increases cancer risk) nor a mere empirical observation (the earth is round). It is subject to verification.

… That Flaxman would still claim otherwise after all experience 

Injection Mandates Counterproductive and Harmful

shows that he is not observing reality but inventing dogma from his own intuition. Flaxman might say that he is sure that transmission might have been higher had people not been ordered to stay home, and there might be settings in which that is true, but he is in no position to elevate this claim to the status of ‘the earth is round.’

… The dogma that ordering people to stay home – for how long? – always reduces the spread comes not from evidence but from Flaxman-style modeling plus a remarkable capacity to ignore reality.”

The rapid emergence of widespread COVID-19 injection mandates, vaccine passports and restrictions based on injection status is also unprecedented and led to controversy on ethical, scientific and political grounds.

A team of 12 researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, the University of Oxford and other institutions outlined key reasons why these mandates have been counterproductive and harmful.12

“While vaccine policies have largely been framed as offering ‘benefits’ with freedoms for those who take up a full COVID-19 vaccination series, they include elements that are punitive, discriminatory and coercive, including conditioning access to health, work, travel and social life on vaccination status in many settings,” the preprint paper reads.13

Four domains are explored, with potential unintended consequences of injection mandates outlined as follows:

  1. Behavioral psychology — COVID-19 injection mandates could lead to reactance and entrenchment, cognitive dissonance, stigma and scapegoating, conspiracy theories and distrust
  2. Political and legal effects — Injection mandates could cause erosion of civil liberties, polarization and disunity in global health governance
  3. Socio-economics — Injection mandates could cause disparity and inequality, reduced health system capacity and exclusion from work and social life
  4. Integrity of science and public health — Consequences include erosion of informed consent, trust in public health policy and trust in regulatory oversight

The authors maintain that segregating society into those who have gotten the shots and those who have not, while restricting access to work and education based on injection status, is a violation of human rights that’s promoting social polarization and adversely affecting health and well-being. In light of this, they note:14

“The adoption of new vaccination status policies has provoked a multilayered global and local backlash, resistance and polarization that threaten to escalate if current policies continue. It is important to emphasize that these policies are not viewed as “incentives” or “nudges” by substantial proportions of populations, especially in marginalized, underserved, or low COVID-19-risk groups.

Denying individuals education, livelihoods, medical care, or social life unless they get vaccinated does not appear to coincide with constitutional and bioethical principles, especially in liberal democracies.

While public support appears to have consolidated behind these policies in many countries, we should acknowledge that human rights frameworks were designed to ensure that rights are respected and promoted even during public health emergencies.

… We argue that current COVID-19 vaccine policies should be reevaluated in light of negative consequences that may outweigh benefits. Leveraging empowering strategies based on trust and public consultation represent a more sustainable approach for protecting those at highest risk of COVID-19 morbidity and mortality and the health and wellbeing of the public.”

2006 Study: Lockdowns Don’t Work

In 2006, public health officials went through a list of mitigation actions that could be used in the event of pandemic influenza, along with their potential repercussions.15

Lockdowns, including quarantine and extended school closures, were not recommended, as this overriding principle was explained: “Experience has shown that communities faced with epidemics or other adverse events respond best and with the least anxiety when the normal social functioning of the community is least disrupted.”

In the case of quarantines, the researchers explained there is “no basis” for quarantining either groups or individuals, as it raises “formidable” problems. “Secondary effects of absenteeism and community disruption as well as possible adverse consequences, such as loss of public trust in government and stigmatization of quarantined people and groups, are likely to be considerable,” they noted.16

Closure of schools beyond 10 to 14 days was also not recommended, unless all other points of contact, such as restaurants and churches, were also closed. But, they noted, “Such widespread closures, sustained throughout the pandemic, would almost certainly have serious adverse social and economic effects.”17

They also advised against cancelling or postponing meetings or events involving large numbers of people, explaining that “cancelling or postponing large meetings would not be likely to have any significant effect on the development of the epidemic” and “… communitywide closure of public events seems inadvisable.”18 Still, Tucker wrote, “a decade and a half later, governments all over the world tried lockdowns anyway.”19

With increasing recognition that lockdowns were useless and COVID-19 injections don’t work as advertised, people are rebelling. COVID-19 shots were supposed to set you free and bring life back to what it looked like in 2019 — no masks, no lockdowns and freedom for everyone, regardless of vaccination status.

Lockdowns, too, were supposed to be a means to an end — an end to the pandemic that, two years later, is still going strong. If you don’t agree with COVID-19 restrictions and mandates in your area, now is the time to speak out in peaceful protest in order to compel positive changes in support of health and overall freedom.

God Bless Truckers – Screw You Canadian Police!

As our own American truckers prepare for their trip to DC to protest the stupid and unconstitutional mandates to do with the China Flu – whoops – virus, I cannot help think about Canada and the totalitarian leadership that many Canadian citizens seem to think is ok. They have lost every inch of any manhood they might have had.

Having spent a lot of my life in law enforcement, I am so angry and so disappointed in the actions taken against Canadian patriotic and peaceful truckers and protesters that only want their entitled liberty and freedom back from the draconian rules put in by the Canadian premier Justin “Adolf” Trudeau.

The Ottawa police and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a force I once looked up to as a shining example of law enforcement professionals, have acted like animals. They have obeyed unconstitutional orders from a dictator and committed many crimes against the peaceful protesters that had every right to be protesting. They have deliberately injured some, rode them over with their horses, illegally stolen their property, attacked their livelihood and even shut down private crypto currency accounts.

The lies told by Canadian media and from the bully pulpit of Adolf Trudeau, about the truckers being criminals, vandals and all round bad guys, was swallowed by a liberal extremist set of police chiefs who couldn’t wait to pound heads and in the words of one, let the protesters feel the weight of the police jackboots! Jackboots. A term used by the Nazi stormtroopers when they were abusing ordinary citizens and Jews, masons, Gypsies and other weaker minorities.

I am attaching 8 screen grabs from some of those Canadian police officers ( PINO – police in name only! ) Facebook pages. These will be at the bottom of this blog. You can read each one and see their disgusting faces and names. They are a disgrace to their uniform and a disgrace to the country which is now a 100% police state. If you are not as incensed as I am there is something wrong with you.

As I mentioned earlier, understand that our brave and patriotic American truck drivers are heading to the belly of the devils spawn, Washington DC. The largest concentration of satanic evil anywhere on the planet. The largest and darkest swamp of evil, foul smelling swamp creatures from both political parties. There they will exercise their rights to peacefully protest the insane mandates of this usurper and draconian king like administration.

They will at some stage meet the most corrupt and disgusting police force in America, the Capitol Police, ( more PINOs ) whose members have one and all totally disregarded the Oaths they took when they joined up. They can get away with everything under this administration, including cold blooded murder. Yes. Murder. I am talking about the black Capitol Police officer, Lt Michael Byrd, who unlawfully, and cowardly, shot and killed an unarmed, unthreatening, white, petite former military veteran and a housewife, Ashli Babbitt, on January 6th.

That America was murder. Premeditated murder. Plain and simple. No charges and none coming.

This sorry excuse of a law enforcement agency, now also a national intelligence agency, one that needs to be disbanded and many of the members charged, which is made up of thugs, cowards hiding behind badges and horses, barricades, guns and batons and yes, jackbooted traitors, are preparing to meet our trucker protesters. It will be all hands on deck as they prepare to stop the truckers getting too close to the Capitol. They are even putting up barricades and fences around the Capitol as all the cops and politicians and their evil hacks are scared sh**less! Turning the area into a no go third world looking area.

I am interested in watching their interaction and those of other law enforcement officers from other agencies, with the protesters and am wondering if the same kind of actions taken by their Canadian counterparts, will be seen here in the streets of our capital.

If we do see that, I believe that could very well be the spark, no, catalyst, that could set this country on fire. It would further divide this country deeper and I believe there is a greater chance of open rebellion. We have seen the total overkill and reaction to the January 6th protest, where hundreds of citizens have been stripped unconstitutionally of their legal rights, and can expect more of the same.

We the people are pissed off.

We the people have had enough.

We the people want our freedoms, our constitutional rights back fully intact.

We the people want to return to the time where our elected officials actually represent our interests and not theirs.

We the people want to return to a time of sanity where right is right and wrong is wrong.

If you get the chance to support these protesting truckers etc. do it. Help them with food, gas, money. Have their backs if they are attacked, arrested and jailed. Help their families. In other words, be true American patriots. Stand up and be counted.

When it is time for patriots to stand up and do patriot stuff, don’t be found wanting. This fraudulent administration, under a pathetic, treasonous, criminal and mentally challenged leader and his equally pitiful, mentally deranged whore of a Vice President, needs to be put in its place.

This country is ours.

It does not exist for the politicians to enrich themselves and to destroy everything our forefathers built and left us, in the name of wokeness or whatever other terminology they want to use.

VIDEO: Biden’s One-Pandemic-Fits-All Approach

The White House has extended the national emergency in response to the COVID pandemic “beyond March 1, 2022.” President Biden, who promised to “shut down the virus,” will celebrate the second birthday of “two weeks to slow the spread” by pretending most people haven’t resumed business as usual. Meanwhile, the disease is screeching to a halt, as every available metric — cases, hospitalizations, deaths — plummets. Washington, D.C. may also screech to a halt, as the U.S. Freedom Convoy piles in next week to protest ongoing, unwarranted restrictions. “I don’t understand why he’s doing it,” exclaimed Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) on “Washington Watch.”

Even some of the strictest Democratic governors have recognized the impending end of the pandemic and are rolling back restrictions and inching towards normalcy. But not the White House. “Two years [ago], there was so much we didn’t know about the coronavirus, but we’ve earned an awful lot,” Johnson noted. “One of the things we’ve learned is this isn’t going to go away.” We also know who is most at risk, how the illness progresses, and how to treat it — not to mention developing and widely distributing three vaccines in record time. Yet the Biden administration refuses to suggest a possible condition to end the emergency.

Two years is too long to struggle with remote or hybrid work, virtual “school,” perpetual masking, constant health screening, and rapidly evolving restrictions. America’s social fabric has unraveled before our eyes as we’ve experienced a breakdown in social trust, unruly airline passengers, fiery protests, a mob at the capitol, two partisan impeachments, and an unbearable regime of online censorship. “Does the president expect to keep America in a perpetual state of emergency?” Johnson asked. America needs a break.

America also needs to return healthcare to the hands of doctors. Johnson suggested “the biggest blunder” in America’s COVID response was how “the administration, the agencies, big pharma, the legacy media, big tech, social media giants — the COVID cartel — has prevented and sabotaged early treatment,” potentially costing “hundreds of thousands of… lives.”

Instead, the Biden administration seems to be pursuing the increasingly unrealistic and absurd objective of 100 percent vaccination. And it chose to pursue that strategy by deceiving the public, deriding reasonable objections, and punishing anyone who distrusted the brand-new drugs. Even the progressive opinion-setter New York Times reported that the CDC hid vaccination data, because, an official said, “they might be misinterpreted as the vaccines being ineffective.” In other words, a reasonable person would interpret the data as showing that vaccines are ineffective, but the prefix “mis-” dismisses that conclusion because it would violate their preferred (that is, the only permitted) narrative.

There may be cases where the vaccine does more harm than good, although by now we all know that suggesting such an obvious possibility would provoke instinctive outrage in many friends and relatives. A January study found unexpectedly high rates of the heart condition myocarditis reported in vaccinated teenage boys, who are at practically no risk of severe infection from COVID. And yet the COVID cartel is ramping up the pressure to force all children to be vaccinated, with one outlet insisting “vaccine refusal is child abuse.”

Johnson insists doctors, not bureaucrats, must have the final say. “I’m personally affected,” he said, “by doctors practicing medicine,” who saved his daughter’s life with an experimental procedure 38 years ago. That’s why he introduced the Right to Treat Act, which would provide doctors latitude in prescribing any fully FDA-approved drug, even off-label. “Twenty to 25 percent of all prescriptions are prescribed off-label…. The federal government should not interfere.”

Kaine: Russia Sanctions Will Expose if GOP Are ‘Appeasers’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s All In, failed vice presidential hopeful Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said the upcoming vote in Congress to sanction Russia for their invasion into Ukrainian territory will expose whether Republican lawmakers are “appeasers” of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Asked if Republicans are going to work with Democrats to further the Biden foreign policy agenda (whatever that is), the unhinged Kaine replied, “Yes, I think there will be some who will follow Donald Trump. Donald Trump calling Putin’s move a genius move, a savvy move, you, know he couldn’t get a Nobel prize, so maybe he’s trying now for the Order of Lenin, or even better, finally, a Trump Tower in Moscow. But we will put our Republican colleagues on the board and see whether they’re Vladimir Putin appeasers or they’re standing up for the Western democracies…”

If Kaine and his tough-talking fellow Democrat blowhards really care about defending freedom around the world, they could start by sanctioning the totalitarian Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of our neighbor to the north, over his ruthless crackdown on truckers protesting COVID mandates. But they won’t because they’re Trudeau appeasers, and because they — not Trump — are the supporters of authoritarian dictators around the world.

In a March 2019 appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, Kaine, discussing two mass shootings that had just killed 51 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, blamed President Trump’s allegedly reckless, bigoted rhetoric for emboldening white nationalists and racists to engage in such acts of violence:

“[White nationalism] is on the rise and the president should call it out but sadly he’s not doing that. We saw in the aftermath of the horrible [August 2017] attack in Charlottesville that he tried to say that the white supremacists, neo-Nazis, neo confederates there were just, you know, good people.[4] But when you see church shootings in Charleston, a synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, you see this hate filled manifesto of the shooter in New Zealand who is murdering Muslims, we have to confront the fact that there is a rise in white supremacy, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim attitudes. The president uses language often that’s very similar to the language used by these bigots and racists. And if he’s not going to call it out then other leaders have to do more to call it out and I certainly will.”

Trusting the Media Is a Left-Wing Disease

I had a relative tell me over the holidays he will not consult any media sources on the political Right because they are all “fascistic” and “reactionary”, whatever that means.  He is quite content to live in ignorant bliss of what half the world thinks and says.  Even though he admitted to me it’s important to get both sides of the story, he won’t, he refuses.

This reminds me that I’ve steadily been clipping stories about the outrages perpetrated by large media outlets which, in case you haven’t noticed, all tilt Left and do their best to keep important information, like the Hillary Clinton campaign and governmental spying on Donald Trump, away from you.

Just last week, an editor at Politico admitted using an unfair poll in its coverage of former Missouri Governor and now U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens. The editor admitted in an email to the Greitens campaign the anonymous poll was “unfair” and using it went against the publication’s usual standards.  Critics said the poll did not disclose who paid for it, the sample size, or the results for other candidates.  They also said, for all we know, the poll was just done among the reporters inside Politico’s newsroom.  They also suggested the poll was cooked up by Washington insiders who don’t want to see Greitens elected and Politico was only too happy to play along.

Earlier this year, NPR’s Nina Totenberg reported the fake news that Justice Sotomayor was staying home because Justice Gorsuch wouldn’t wear a mask. Gorsuch and Chief Justice John Roberts rebuked Totenberg in statements they issued denying what she had alleged.

NPR also tried and failed to debunk reporting from a conservative media outlet about election fraud in Michigan.  NPR tried to claim an election audit had been performed there, but neglected to tell listeners the so-called ‘audit’ was just a small review of procedures, not ballots.  NPR also claimed no one is denying vans mysteriously showed up at the Detroit vote counting center in the middle of the night, but numerous media outlets had been denying it for months.  Among other things, NPR also tried to claim the big batch of ballots for Biden came from drop boxes, but the boxes had already been cleared out every hour.

NPR also twisted the results of a study on meth addicts.  The study found a small improvement in their behavior for a few weeks when the government paid them to stay off meth.  NPR used this to claim such payments work long-term and to extol the virtues of a proposal to make such payments in California.  However, NPR exaggerated the importance of a single study finding a marginal short-term benefit, puffing it up into the claim this was the best course of action and other treatments don’t work.

Last August, CNN’s Chris Cuomo lied to viewers when he claimed he never talked to other members of the press about his brother’s sexual harassment scandal, his brother being the former Governor of New York before they were both dethroned. However, documents show Chris Cuomo did call around to other news outlets trying to sniff out what damaging stories might be coming. He also drafted entire statements he hoped would help his brother.

A CNN cameraman issued a death threat to Congressman Matt Gaetz and was stupid enough to leave it on voicemail.  “I’m going to put a bullet in you. I’m going to put a bullet in one of your f***ing kids too…. Die in a hole, I hope you die in a shallow grave, you despicable tyrant.” OK, tell us how you really feel.

ABC7 in San Francisco declared the term ‘looters’ out of bounds and would not use it to describe the looting taking place in the city late last year.

These are just the latest outrages.  There’s more, but you get the point.  These are the media sources in which my relative has placed his trust – people who lie to viewers, run fake polls, ignore important stories, won’t call a spade a spade, and make stuff up.  They are deranged and violent, but my relative still trusts them, to this day.  Are you going to make the same mistake?  I hope not.  As for me, I’ll take “fascistic” and “reactionary” over unhinged dishonest propagandists any day.

Patriotic Americans Classified as Domestic Terrorists

“The closer the collapse of an empire, the crazier their laws.” –  Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.” – George Orwell

“I have always been of the opinion that unpopularity earned by doing what is right is not unpopularity at all, but glory.” –  Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is no denying that Hitler and Stalin are alive today… they are waiting for us to forget, because this is what makes possible the resurrection of these two monsters.” – Simon Wiesenthal

A warrior knows he could die in battle, he just doesn’t expect the arrows to be from his own government.  Today’s warriors are the doctors, scientists, pathologists, funeral directors, actuaries, conservative journalists and radio hosts who are bringing us the truth.  The floodgates are opened, but we the people must be behind those who are standing for the rest of us.  If the enemies of freedom can eliminate them, we are next.

Today’s censorship is the greatest threat of all. Silence is not golden.  The very right of free speech was so important to our founders that it was placed in our first amendment.

The Lord God Almighty gave us free will to choose whom we shall worship.  Our country was founded on the words of our Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

We are again facing what our founders faced with, “a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

When a nation turns its back on the Creator, He lifts His Hand of blessing.  Our Judeo-Christian heritage is all but obliterated from every facet of society.  It is imperative that we turn back to Him.

We are at war, a Revolution to be exact, will we put on the full armor of God and having done all, to Stand?  Will we fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness or will we kneel to the despots who claim that we are domestic terrorists?

Domestic Terrorists

Our current President has declared white supremacists to be the “most lethal terrorist threat” to the US today.  There is no evidence to support the belief that white supremacy is a significant problem in America today. Link  Neither is there any evidence to support the presence of systemic racism.  Yet, our intelligence communities have decided that white supremacists are the greatest threat in America.

The National School Boards Association (NSBA) sent a letter on September 29, to President Biden warning that school boards face “physical threats” due to opposition to COVID-19 policies and critical race theory. The letter claimed that some unruly parent protests may be “equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism.”  Upon investigation, not one case of a “physical threat” was unearthed. The NSBA issued a letter of apology, but it was too little, too late.  Link

Patriotic God-fearing Americans who love their country and our US Constitution are now classified by the federal government and intelligence branches as being domestic terrorists.  Our future does not bode well.  One need only look at what our neighbors to the north are going through.

Trudeau just went full Nazi in Canada and declared the Emergencies Act – and is even sending in armed soldiers on horseback to beat and trample innocent protesters and is arresting any reporter who dares to report on his tyranny. Fifteen days (two lousy weeks) to slow the spread and it turned into two full years.  If you resist in Canada, or protest, they will freeze your bank accounts, take your children and pets, tow your vehicles and toss you in prison.

Is America next?

US Intelligence Community

The US intelligence community consists of 18 organizations, including intelligence elements of the five DoD services; the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Space Force.  The two agencies wielding the most political power in today’s environ are the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The FBI has defined Domestic Terrorists, but does not include Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Islamic “Extremists,” The New Black Panthers, or the Not F’g Around Coalition, to name just a few.

In an article entitled, The War Comes Home: The Evolution of Domestic Terrorism in the United States, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) states the following:

Some U.S. government agencies have outlined the threat from domestic extremists, though most have not provided recent data about terrorist incidents. In its Homeland Threat Assessment released in October 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security concluded that “racially and ethnically motivated violent extremists—specifically white supremacist extremists (WSEs)—will remain the most persistent and lethal threat in the Homeland.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation similarly argued that the “top threat we face from domestic violent extremists” is from racially- and ethnically-motivated violent extremists, including white supremacists.

Violence and the threat of violence are important components of terrorism. This analysis divides terrorism into several categories: religious, ethnonationalist, violent-far-right, violent-far-left, and other (which includes terrorism that does not fit neatly into any of the other categories).

There you have it.  Whites Americans are the target!

How many times did America’s Pravda media call the 2020 riots and violence by BLM and Antifa “fiery protests, but mostly peaceful?” Mostly peaceful?  Who the hell are they kidding?  The destruction was massive.  Police were told to stand down while stores were damaged and looted, businesses burned, and Portland, Oregon’s federal building has $2.3 million in damages.  These communist thugs damaged federal and private property throughout the country.

Certainly, they are on the FBI and DHS list of domestic terrorists, aren’t they?

Well, No!

The DHS put out a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin on Feb. 7, 2022, stating that, “The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence.”

Truth has become the new hate speech.


In the early 1900s, America was bereft of intelligence agencies other than the small staff of the Secret Service.  One issue of the day was anarchism, an often-violent offshoot of Marxism, with its revolutionary call to overthrow capitalism and bring power to the common man. Anarchists took it a step further, they wanted to do away with government entirely.

The prevailing anarchistic creed that government was oppressive and repressive, that it should be overthrown by random attacks on the ruling class (including everyone from police to priests to politicians), was preached by often articulate spokesmen and women around the world. By the end of the nineteenth century, several world leaders were among those who had been assassinated.  Anarchists were the first modern day terrorists.

After the assassination of President McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt became the President and named Charles Bonaparte as the Attorney General.  With a need for criminal investigators, Bonaparte kept borrowing Secret Service (SS) men until Congress put a stop to it.  He decided to start his own investigatory agency and hired several of the SS he had borrowed. In 1909, Bonaparte’s successor, Attorney General George W. Wickersham, gave this band of agents their first name—the Bureau of Investigation. It stuck.

During its first 15 years, the Bureau was a shadow of its future self. It was not yet strong enough to withstand the sometimes-corrupting influence of patronage politics on hiring, promotions, and transfers. (Sounds as though it never changed) J. Edgar Hoover was appointed as Director of the Bureau of Investigation and was credited for the founding of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1935 and built it into the huge organization it is today. He amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten others, including multiple sitting presidents of the United States.  Here is the list of directors who headed the FBI from its inception.

The US Department of Homeland Security is a relatively new member of the intelligence community.  It was founded in 2003, in response to the devastation of the September 11, 2001 attacks.  Its stated missions involve anti-terrorism, border security, immigration and customs, cyber security, and disaster prevention and management. Like the FBI, the DHS is more about leftist politics than doing the job they were formed to do.

Our latest FBI Director, Christopher Wray, was suggested to President Donald Trump by Chris Christie.  His nomination should have been pulled when he testified that he would not take orders from President Trump, but the 45th President let it slide. The FBI Director reports to the Attorney General who is the number one legal advisor to the president.

I’ll never forget the photo of FBI agents kneeling for George Floyd…a known drug addict and felon.

Few FBI Directors have had the public’s interest at heart, most, including Hoover, who spent his career amassing and expanding his power, a power he abused, were political animals.  Hoover never trusted anyone he didn’t have something on.  He was a monumental egotist with an insatiable demand for flattering publicity; he had little respect for American constitutional values. He was above all an aggrandizing bureaucrat, whose reach knew no bounds.  He expanded his power and survived through abuses that amounted to little less than blackmail of prominent public officials and private citizens and personal intimidation toward any person or institution daring to question his authority.

Eighty years ago, a brilliant female cryptologist found out exactly what Hoover and the FBI were all about.

A Trip Back in Time

William Friedman and Elizebeth Smith Friedman were American cryptologists who helped decipher enemy codes from World War I to World War II.  The book, The Woman Who Smashed Codes, by Jason Fagone tells Elizebeth’s amazing story.

William studied genetics at Cornell University (B.S., 1914). Elizebeth Smith majored in English at Hillsdale (Michigan) College (B.A., 1915). They met at the Riverbank Laboratories (Geneva, Illinois), run by millionaire eccentric, George Fabyan, where they both eventually became involved in cryptology working often for the government in decoding diplomatic messages. In 1917–18 William served in the U.S. Army, partly in France, analyzing German code books.

In the 1930s, Elizebeth became America’s, and the world’s, most famous codebreaker.  The evidence she gave in criminal trials describing how she cracked encrypted messages passing between mobsters made her a newspaper sensation. She even had to be protected by security guards.

Throughout World War II Elizebeth used her skills to hunt Nazi spies who were spreading into the West. She broke these Nazi spy codes for the FBI, which would have been lost without her—and then Hoover turned around and painted himself as the big hero. There was nothing she could do, because of secrecy rules.

She also broke coded messages sent on Germany’s Enigma machines. These messages revealed a plot by the Argentinian government to help Germany replace South American governments with Nazis, giving Germany bases from which to attack America. Her discoveries allowed the western allies to thwart the Argentinian and German plans.

While working for the intelligence department of the Coast Guard, Elisebeth discovered there were clandestine Nazi spies in Brazil sending codes.  Hoover’s FBI attacked and captured this group, beat them mercilessly and exposed their code breaking and then thanked the South American police.  His actions ruined the American and UK code breaking efforts.  After this happened, the Coast Guard and Navy purposely bypassed the publicity seeking Hoover, and gave nothing to the FBI.  It took months for them to again break the new codes, and many American’s and allies’ lives were lost because of Hoover’s foolish self-aggrandizing bravado.

Elizebeth Smith Friedman’s wartime codebreaking work was so secret that she was forbidden to mention it in public. She died many years before government archives were brought to light showing what she had done. During and after World War II, Hoover and the FBI took the credit for work Elizebeth and her U.S. Coast Guard team had carried out.  Those were the early years of Hoover’s nearly half-century reign as FBI Director.

Since those days, we’ve seen dozens of very negative FBI actions.

  • Whitey Bulger was an FBI informant who murdered 19 people while working for the FBI.
  • Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, with justa little bit of help and guidance from the FBI raided the home of Fred Hampton, a prominent Black Panther, and assassinated him while he slept. The immense amount of energy, time and resources the FBI spent subverting Hampton, a noted orator and political strategist, came out over the years and in 1982 his family won a major civil lawsuit.
  • Jack Olsen’s, Last Man Standing: The Tragedy and Triumph of Geronimo Pratt, is the gripping story of Geronimo Pratt, war hero, (two combat tours in Vietnam), and community leader, who was framed by the FBI in one of the greatest travesties of justice in American history. Geronimo Pratt did not commit the murder for which he served twenty-seven nightmarish years.  As a UCLA student, though, he had led the Los Angeles Chapter of the Black Panther Party, and became a target of the FBI.  Why?  He detested violence.  The FBI willfully and criminally withheld evidence they knew would exonerate Pratt, because they wanted his outspoken voice silenced via prison.  Stu Hanlon and Johnny Cochran proved his innocence and sued the FBI and LAPD and won $5 million.
  • The 1992 siege at Ruby Ridge, FBI sniper kills two innocents. Randy Weaver sues FBI and wins $3.1 million.
  • The 1993 Trade Center building bombing involving the FBI.
  • The 1993 Branch Davidian Waco, TX Siege.
  • The Coverup of the 1995 Murrah Building bombing.
  • The FBI spying on President Trump, the phony Russian collusion, and the set up by two FBI agents to eliminate National Security Advisor, General Michael T. Flynn.

I’ve mentioned only a few of the circumstances where the FBI failed to act or their actions cost lives.  Here is a list of many of their controversies.

Has the FBI had good men and women?  Yes, they have! But most of those agents left or were forced out.  John Guandolo and Robyn Gritz (Link) are just two of the wonderful agents who are no longer protecting America.  There are far more.


We are facing the most treacherous time in American history and it is apparent that US intelligence communities will “just follow orders.”

Our Judeo-Christian society has long been the object of destruction.  We must pray, fight and stand.  “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

Resistance to tyranny comes with many consequences, but then so does submission.

VIDEO: Gunmaker’s New ‘AR-15 for Kids’ Has Left Shooting Intellectual Blanks

UPDATE: This article initially indicated that the AR-15’s standard round was “moderate in muzzle velocity.” I should have written that it’s lacking in “killing power” according to this analysis. The article has been corrected to reflect this reality. I deeply regret the error, which was the result of a lamentable brain cramp.

A good response to the self-righteous exclamation “You let your son play with toy guns!?” might once have been, “Well, yeah, he’s too young to have a real one!” But perhaps not anymore, not with a new addition to the firearms market: a smaller, lighter AR-15 designed just for kids.

Dubbed the JR-15, the AFP relates that it’s “marketed by maker WEE1 Tactical as ‘the first in a line of shooting platforms that will safely help adults introduce children to the shooting sports.’” Clearly aghast, the news organ further reports that the “company’s website says the rifle ‘also looks, feels, and operates just like Mom and Dad’s gun.’”

Unsurprisingly, the AFP reminds people in its commentary masquerading as hard news that the AR-15 “has been used in multiple mass killings in the United States…” while quoting only anti-Second Amendment activists in its piece. Yet is mixing kids and guns really anything to fear? Let’s examine the matter.

Many people today won’t let their sons play with toy guns, perhaps afraid that it could increase the chances their boys could become murderers. But, question: Do these people also stop their kids from playing with trucks for fear they’ll turn into truck drivers? (And with the Canadian protests, this may especially trouble leftists now!)

It’s quite silly supposing that instruction in or experience with a thing increases the probability that thing will be used for evil. Does teaching a youngster to drive increase the chances he’ll mow down a crowd with a car? If a kid becomes skilled at baseball, is it more likely he’ll bludgeon someone unconscious with a bat? Does schooling a lad in carpentry raise the odds he’ll kill with a hammer?

Apropos of this, more people are murdered yearly with blunt instruments than with AR-15s or, for that matter, with rifles of any kind. Do we need blunt-instrument control?

Making this even odder is that there was a time when, unlike today, gun-control efforts had at least some relationship to reality. While I didn’t support the proposals, the emphasis back in the ’90s was on criminalizing handguns. The thinking was that most firearm murders are committed with handguns largely because, being concealable, they’re criminals’ weapons of choice.

In recent times, however, there’s been a fixation on prohibiting law-abiding sport shooters’ weapon of choice (the AR-15 is our nation’s most popular rifle). Given this jump-the-shark version of gun-grabbing, is it surprising that many Second Amendment advocates believe current proposals have nothing to do with safety and everything to do with control?

Moreover, while AR-15s have been used in some horrific massacres, they’re not actually the most effective firearms for a typical mass-shooting situation; that is, with “soft” targets (people without body armor) at close range. For this purpose, a semi-automatic shotgun would be far, far more devastating. After all, the AR’s standard round is small caliber — approximately the same as a .22 — and is moderate in muzzle velocity. (Yes, really. The weapon is the Wizard of Oz of firearms, with a reputation greatly exceeding its power.)

So why do some mass shooters choose AR’s, anyway? Part of the reason is that it’s more likely than other long guns to be on hand because, again, it’s our most popular rifle. Second, it’s appealing because it looks cool. Put differently, mass shooters may choose ARs because….

They usually know little about firearms.

Returning to the fevered fears over kids and guns, I remember reading the comments years ago of a judge who noted (I’m paraphrasing), “I’ve never seen a boy with a hunting or fishing license come before me [in court].” This is just common sense. Do you really think the lad with an engaged father — who teaches him proper gun-handling and takes him hunting or target-shooting — fits the criminal profile? The average mass shooter or career criminal is more likely to have had no dad around at all or one who was a miscreant himself.

In truth, the fear that exposure to firearms will somehow increase the chances a child will kill often reflects the godless perspective that conceives of man as just another animal. Put appealing food before a dog and he’ll gobble it down without thinking, governed by instinct; he’ll practically eat himself to death if you let him. Though also subject to temptation, only a human being will think: Should I eat this? Is it healthful? Will it make me fat?

Consider also that every child must learn to manage weapons — they’re called hands, fists and feet. Note, too, the FBI informs that more murders are committed yearly with these appendages, which the bureau classifies as “personnel weapons,” than with rifles of any kind.

The point is that man is a rational being, reflecting God in that he possesses intellect and free will. Yet those making the youth+gun exposure=trouble assumption appear to ignore the moral component. What’s more, they also don’t even rightly consider correlations. To wit: The phenomenon of increasingly frequent mass shootings manifested itself in the ’90s, but AR-15s weren’t born in the ’90s but in the late ’50s.

What does correlate with the ’90s mass shooting phenomenon, however, is the greatly increased medicating of children (especially boys) with psychotropic drugs, the intensification of mindless entertainment violence, the Internet’s rise, continued family breakdown, and burgeoning godlessness with its associated moral relativism. Any discussion about reducing crime that doesn’t include these factors simply isn’t serious.

In the same vein, in earlier times we had relatively few gun laws, and teaching boys to shoot at young ages was common. Why, in the ’40s and ’50s, lads would carry firearms openly on New York City subways (try that today) because they had rifle clubs at school. What changed in the ’60s and beyond? Access to guns?

As for the JR-15, it’s not only a brilliant marketing idea but makes sense. ARs are extremely light and have virtually no recoil, making them ideal for physically weaker people such as women and children. And since it’s smaller and uses .22 ammunition, the JR-15 is even lighter with less kick still. So it only makes sense that if you’re going to teach your kid to use a gun — in keeping with longstanding American tradition — such a weapon would be a logical choice.

None of this will matter to leftists, though, as they occupy an inverted moral universe. They believe children mustn’t be taught to shoot before 10 but must be taught about sex before 8, that it can be toxic to push a boy toward masculine pursuits but healthful to tell him he can become a girl. Operating with intellectual blanks and moral misfires, leftists are twisted souls — and their ideology has killed far more people than any gun ever could.

For those interested, below is a video from the SHOT Show 2022 (a gun trade event) in which the JR-15 is displayed and its features discussed.

America First Political Committee Chairman KW Miller Set to Primary RINO Carlos Gimenez (FL-26)

WASHINGTON, D.C. /PRNewswire/ — America First Political Committee Chairman KW Miller set to primary RINO Carlos Gimenez (FL-26).  Florida RINO Carlos Gimenez has betrayed Republican Voters far too many times. RINO Gimenez will be replaced in Congress with a true Constitutional Republican to represent residents in Southern Dade County and Monroe County Florida.

Gimenez is NOT supported by America First or the Republican voters in Florida’s 26th Congressional District. RINO Carlos Gimenez has openly voted with Nancy Pelosi and the radical leftists in Congress on critical ‘Unconstitutional Issues’.

  • RINO Gimenez openly supported and ‘Voted for Hillary Clinton’ in 2016. Gimenez also defended disgraced RINO Liz Cheney after she voted in favor of the ‘Sham Impeachment’ against Donald Trump.
  • RINO Gimenez doubled down in defending Cheney after the Republican Caucus censored and removed RINO Liz Cheney from Republican Party Leadership.
  • RINO Gimenez also voted for the ‘January 6‘ Socialist Democrat witch hunt against American Citizens and Republican voters. Gimenez, like RINO Liz Cheney openly votes and sides with the Socialist and Radical Democrats.

Some other notable examples of Gimenez Socialist votes include:

  • RINO Gimenez voted with Nancy Pelosi on H.R. 550, to allow the federal government to create a database, track unvaccinated Americans, who could be targeted, segregated, discriminated against, and forced to comply with vaccination mandates;
  • RINO Gimenez voted with Nancy Pelosi on Anti-Second Amendment legislation HR-8, making it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to purchase, own, carry, and use a firearm;
  • RINO Gimenez voted with Nancy Pelosi on H.R. 6 for ‘Open Borders and Amnesty’ to over 20 million criminal illegal aliens, which would permanently avoid deportation, obtain a pathway to citizenship, and full voting rights;
  • RINO Gimenez also voted with Nancy Pelosi to strip Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of all Congressional Committee positions.

A Video Message to Biden from Freedom Convoy USA 2022

Trucker Convoy is Coming to DC— Their Leader Has a Message for Joe Biden.


“This message is for the President of the United States of America.

“My name is Kyle Sefcik of the Freedom Convoy USA 2022 and our routes meet here in DC on March 1st, in time for your State of the Union address.

“We are very organized and our routes are public. I even put a permit for the National Mall to be respectful.

“I just want to be as transparent as possible from the start so there’s no confusion.

“We are coming peacefully and we’re going to do this lawfully and Constitutionally.

“I want the rest of the world to know our plans so that there’s no twisting and lying about who and what we are.

“I’m coming to you as a father, a small business owner who’s unaffiliated to any parties.

“We just want government overreach to end.

“On behalf of Freedom Convoy USA 2022, we are asking you to end the State of Emergency. End the mandates once and for all.

“Sir, the world is watching us, because they know that if what’s happening in Canada happens to us here in the Land of the Free, then freedom as we know it is gone.

“So, we are leaving the choice to you. The decision is in your hands.

“This whole convoy, this whole assembly on the national mall – it doesn’t even have to happen, if you just end things now and we can get on with our lives.

“To you other convoys that plan on meeting us here, we look forward to seeing you and joining with you.

“We’re going to do this right. We’re going to do this honorably.

“Mr President, we have no other motives in this mission.

“You see, the Government, our elected officials of both parties have failed us tremendously in the last two years and now it’s time for us, We the People to fix this. To end this.

“We’re ready to get back to our lives, the ones promised and guaranteed in the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights and the contract that you signed and swore an oath to under the One True God.

“This is simple. End this.”

We must not forget that just because war is unthinkable to us, it’s unthinkable to dictators

A former Prime Minister of Australia warns that Vladimir Putin’s ambitions in Ukraine threaten us all.

History isn’t malicious, just instructive. It tells us that progress isn’t inevitable; that justice isn’t always done; that good won’t always win; and that danger always lurks.

Above all, it tells us that individual and collective choice matters: that our beliefs drive our actions, and that havoc can be wreaked, or stopped, because people decide to make a stand.

Few things have been more telling than the reaction of key countries to the Russian army poised on Ukraine’s borders.

Britain and America have sent anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles but no troops. Germany has been reluctant even to threaten sanctions, should Russia invade. And in shades of Munich, France has championed a peace deal based on changing the Ukrainian constitution to meet Russia’s demands.

In trying to extract a pledge from his smaller neighbour that it will never join NATO, the Russian president is exploiting the universal fear of war in an attempt to dictate the policy of NATO and to smash the independence of Ukraine.

He’s relying on everyone’s unwillingness to take risks for someone else. And so far, he’s succeeding; the Europeans and the Americans are divided and the West looks impotent.

The only ones to emerge with much credit are the Ukrainians themselves, who’ve manned their defences and insisted on their right to conduct an independent foreign policy, including joining NATO and the EU.

But regardless of how this particular episode plays out, let’s be under no illusion. Vladimir Putin sees himself as the new Tsar, a ruler for life, determined to restore greater Russia.

To that end, he’s invaded Georgia, annexed the Crimea, occupied the Donbas, killed-without-compunction opponents at home and abroad, and restored Russia as a military superpower despite an economy smaller than Italy’s.

Ukraine is but his present target, because it persists in looking west not east; and because the 1994 Anglo-American security assurance, named for this very city, in return for the surrender of Soviet-era nuclear weapons, failed to replicate the one-in, all-in provision of Article 5 of the NATO Charter.

However the current stand-off ends, we can be confident that Putin’s campaign will continue, remorseless, relentless, by all means up to and including all-out-war, until Ukraine becomes a Russian colony.

And then his attention will turn to the Baltic States, and then to Poland, and then to the other former Soviet satellites, until Russia is again the overlord of Eastern Europe.

I fear the only thing that will stop him is death, defeat, or the conviction that he would lose.

On what do I base that?

Well, after a Russian missile battery shot down MH17 over the eastern Ukraine, killing 38 Australians, I promised to “shirtfront” the Russian president – it’s an Australian sporting term for a rough tackle.

I had that very robust conversation with him on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Beijing in 2014. With rare intensity, he insisted that Ukraine was really Russian and that their government was fascist or worse – and that provocateurs had brought down the plane.

And then he grabbed me with both hands and said something both strange and revealing: “you are not a native Australian”, he said, “but I am a native Russian”.

It’s this passion for blood and soil and sacred mission that drives my sense that he’s ready to take big risks, to restore the Russia of his dreams, especially against weakness and vulnerability.

Of course, Putin is not Hitler, and Ukraine is not Czechoslovakia, and these are not the 1930s, but there are plenty of disturbing parallels, including a new “axis” of great powers ready to disturb the peace to get what they want.

A fortnight back, the Russian dictator and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, issued a declaration on “International Relations Entering a New Era”. We know the type of new era they have in mind from their preposterous claim that both Russia and China enjoy “long-standing traditions of democracy”.

This would be news to the gaoled Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, and to the gaoled Australian news anchor Cheng Lei, and to the tennis star Peng Shuai now doomed to life in a cage.

For Beijing, ”democracy with Chinese characteristics” obviously covers the internment of more than a million Uighurs, the strangulation of Hong Kong despite the solemn promise of one country, two systems, and the near daily intimidation of Taiwan, a genuine democracy that proves there’s no totalitarian gene in the Chinese DNA.

Not for nothing has China built what’s already the world’s largest navy, plus a militarised coast guard, plus a maritime militia, and achieved what many defence planners think is military superiority over the United States in the Western Pacific.

The main purpose of this joint declaration, this Moscow-Beijing axis, is to bury, they say, the “political and military alliances of the Cold War era” – so no more NATO, no US troops in Japan and South Korea, and ultimately an end to the Pax Americana – through a dictators’ partnership that has, they say, “no limits” and no “forbidden areas of cooperation”.

The Molotov-Ribbentrop pact, maybe it’s not; but it’s definitely a free hand from each, for the other to do its worst.

At heart, what they both reject is the American-backed world order, a liberal and humane set of understandings and arrangements, that’s enabled the very best time in human history; with the world’s people more free, more safe and more prosperous than ever before.

Even though they’ve both befitted from it, with half a billion Chinese moving from the third world to the middle class in scarcely a generation, after President Clinton bent the rules to admit China to the WTO; and with Russia becoming a petro-power that can turn Europe’s energy on-and-off like a tap.

For years, American officialdom ignored the Chinese leadership’s much- stated intention to be the world’s top country by mid-century; only for the secretary of state, just a week ago in Melbourne, belatedly to declare that China’s goal was indeed global domination.

So, with these latter-day dictators clearly on the march, as Lenin once asked: what is to be done?

In his celebrated speech attacking the Munich sell-out as a “defeat without a war”, Winston Churchill declared that this was but “the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year, unless by a supreme recovery of moral health” – let’s underline that – “moral health” he said, “and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom, as in the olden time”.

A response to the dictators starts with appreciating that just because war is unthinkable to us, doesn’t make it unthinkable to them.

Since the beginning of time, the strong have always been tempted to take advantage of the weak; and the tough and the hungry have always sought to usurp the indolent and the soft.

Throw in what [British philosopher David] Hume recognised, that passions drive reason, and what’s unthinkable to most can become entirely reasonable to some, especially those on a quest for national glory.

Last week, the German chancellor proclaimed that “war has become unthinkable in Europe and we have to make sure it stays that way” – even though he must know, that up against someone who thinks differently, and who routinely uses war to achieve his ends, the only way to avoid war is to surrender.

Is Germany so ashamed of its past, and so enervated by its wealth, that it can no longer stand up to those set on taking advantage of it, including a Russian president bent on economic and military blackmail?

We must hope that events don’t give us the wrong answer.

That’s the baleful side of 1989: this notion that the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the “end of history” and the era of universal peace based on the triumph of liberal capitalism.

Rather than a new beginning, 1989 was simply one brief shining moment in time, when liberal nations were clearly ascendant over illiberal ones.

But that was soon squandered, through misplaced idealism: by bloody, expensive and largely futile nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan, that’s sapped the West’s strength and self-confidence; and by welcoming China and Russia into global markets, that’s increased their wealth and strength but not their goodwill.

As their current adventurism shows, both countries’ exceptionalism still includes the conviction that they should dominate their regions, if not the wider world.

All that’s lingered from those heady days, three decades back, is the conviction of Western elites that their obsessions with climate change and identity politics are widely shared; coupled with their strange unwillingness to call-out in other cultures what they condemn in their own.

As the five decades after 1945 show, the only way to keep aggressors at bay is collective security; otherwise, the strong do what they will, and the weak suffer what they must.

Take Eastern Europe: if it’s Russia against Ukraine, sooner or later, Russia will prevail; as Russia ultimately did against Finland in 1940.

Take East Asia: if it’s China against Taiwan, China will inevitably prevail.

But if it’s Russia or China versus the democracies, one for all and all for one, that’s an entirely different matter.

Perhaps this military crisis might awaken the people of Western countries, so recently discombobulated by a virus, and so unaccustomed to sacrifice, to how readily a freedom that’s not cherished and defended can be lost.

We have to make the war that’s unthinkable to us, for moral reasons, unthinkable to them for prudential reasons. We who shrink from war because it’s morally wrong have to make others shrink from war because they’d likely lose.

Of course, our instinctive initial reaction is to avoid entirely “quarrels in faraway countries between people of whom we know nothing”.

Yet what other countries’ freedom might be dispensable, if theirs is? And who would we fight alongside, if not them? And if others’ fights aren’t ours, who might help us, when our turn comes?

This is where moral health is indeed called for, as much as martial vigour, in any contest between nations.

We can’t forget Churchill’s other observation that “jaw-jaw is better than war-war”, provided we remember that the point of diplomacy with dictators is to deliver a stern message that their demands are unacceptable.

It would be shameful were any pressure to be put on Ukraine to accept Putin’s demands because concessions would just embolden a bully.

Even now, I’m not sure how widely it’s grasped what’s at stake in this confrontation between democracy and autocracy, between sovereignty and subservience – and how the whole trajectory of history could change.

Meanwhile, comrades Putin and Xi watch the scuttle from Kabul, because a long-term military presence was judged to be too hard; the toppling of statues, because yesterday’s heroes have to be damned by today’s standards; and our self-flagellation over race and identity, even though there’s never been less racism, and minorities have never had a fairer go, and conclude that a decadent West is unlikely to defend itself with vigour, let alone stand up for others.

They see America in retreat, and no other country or collection of countries with strength and goodwill sufficient to be the guardian of peace with freedom.

For all of us as individuals and for each of our countries, the challenge is to prove them wrong. As long there are millions who would seek a better life in Western countries, we need to accept that vote of confidence in ourselves, and never weaken on what’s made us great.
