Is ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ a reflection of Orwell’s Dystopian novel ‘1984’?

“At a time when political dishonesty is rampant, we should remember 1984s most important lesson: The state can occupy your mind.”Matthew Feeney, June 5, 2019 commentary titled Seventy Years Later, It’s Still ‘1984’


I watched the latest Matrix film titled “Resurrections” and saw on the silver screen the true meaning of Eric Blair’s dystopian novel “1984.”

According to Warner Brothers The Matrix Resurrections is a struggle:

To find out if his reality is a physical or mental construct, Mr. Anderson, aka Neo, will have to choose to follow the white rabbit once more. If he’s learned anything, it’s that choice, while an illusion, is still the only way out of — or into — the Matrix. Neo already knows what he has to do, but what he doesn’t yet know is that the Matrix is stronger, more secure and far more dangerous than ever before.

QUESTION: But is this true? Is Resurrections about “constructs” and “choices” or something else?

The Matrix Resurrections is about Language

After watching and reflecting overnight about this latest in the Matrix series of dystopian films, I came to the realization that Mr. Anderson, a.k.a. Neo, learned that the real danger of the Matrix is language.

Eric Blair, pen name George Orwell, published his novel “1984” in 1949 yet the lessons in his seminal work are still applicable today. Many who have read “1984“, including myself, had a false notion of the true meaning of Orwell’s work.

In a June 5th, 2019 op-ed published in the Fredericksburg Free Lance‐​Star titled “Seventy Years Later, It’s Still ‘1984’Matthew Feeney wrote:

The main lesson of “1984” is not “persistent surveillance is bad,” or “authoritarian governments are dangerous.” These are true statements, but not the most important message.

“1984” is at its core a novel about language; how it can be used by governments to subjugate and obfuscate, and by citizens to resist oppression. [Emphasis added]

It seems that The Matrix in its latest evolution “Resurrections” has addressed this core dystopian notion of how the state can occupy your mind.

Resurrections’ main character is The Analyst played by Neil Patrick Harris. The Analyst is the consummate wordsmith. He uses language to subjugate Neo and Trinity. As George Orwell wrote,

“Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”

The Analyst is a master at tearing apart human minds and putting the pieces back together again to maintain the myth of the Matrix. You see the Matrix is the ultimate myth!

Resurrections it is not a love conquers all story between Neo and Trinity. It is neither about persistent surveillance nor about authoritarian rule by machines. It’s not even about choice.

It is all about how language is used to create an alternate reality that even the citizens of IO cannot resist.

IO is a human city led by Niobe. Niobe believes that IO is the second chance for machines and humans to coexist together peacefully. This is a false flag used to suppress resistance. IO is a sub-state created by Niobe to keep its people from dissenting.

In Resurrections we see Bugs, played by Jessica Henwick, who is the blue-haired gunslinger with a White Rabbit tattoo and captain of the hovercraft Mnemosyne, as the true leader of the dissidents and the resistance against the Matrix.

Bugs understands that Niobe has been subjugated using the language of coexistence, the language that has kept Niobe from resisting the Matrix.

In order to be set free the people of IO must resist the oppression of the Matrix’s (government’s) ability to subjugate and obfuscate using words like coexist. Coexist is a word seen on car bumpers. Coexist is a myth.

The Real Lesson of The Matrix Resurrections 

We are now in an era where political dishonesty is rampant. It’s name is not The Matrix but rather the Cancel Culture.

QUESTION: Who are the Cancel Culture’s enemies?

ANSWER: Those who dissent and speak truth to power.

As The Analyst uses language to subjugate and obfuscate, so do todays politicians and world leaders. Political dishonesty is the new normal.

The media, social media and even Amazon’s Alexa use language to lull you into not thinking but rather obeying. Because if you think then you will resist their efforts to subjugate you via their language. Like Bugs, Neo and Trinity you must first dissent and then revolt in order to change the world.

George Orwell in 1984 wrote,

“Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.”

Neo and Trinity were not mad when they suddenly realized the truth. The truth that they were being told untruths by The Analyst using obfuscated language. So to must we all be alert to being subjugated by the state that uses obfuscate language. For you see in Orwell’s dystopian world, and in The Matrix Resurrections,

Orthodoxy means not thinking–not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.

Today we have the new language of the Cancel Culture, its the language of “the woke.” The Cancel culture or “call-out culture” is a nuevo form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles – whether it be online, on social media, or in person. Those subject to this nuevo ostracism has then, by definition, been “cancelled.”

Woke is a mythical language created by people so that other people are first ostracized and then cancelled. It is the nuevo Matrix.

The authoritarian government of Orwell’s Oceania doesn’t merely punish dissent severely—it seeks to make even thinking about dissent impossible. So too does the dystopian Cancel Culture.

Don’t be cancelled like Neo and Trinity were. Stand up, like Bugs, and understand the language of the cancel culture’s myths. The Matrix is a myth. The Cancel Culture is a myth. So don’t submit to a world driven by the language of myths.

As Plato wrote, “No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth.”

Howard Rotberg wrote, Any strong ideological belief carries with it a risk of denying those facts that do not support the ideology.”

QUESTION: What do we do to cancel the cancel culture?

ANSWER: Tell the truth using indisputable facts.

Seek the truth at all cost. The truth will set us all free.

MICHIGAN: Similar COVID-19 Case Rates in Schools With No Mask Mandates

And yet schools are expelling students if their mask mandate is violated.

Michigan: Similar COVID-19 Case Rates in Schools With No Mask Mandates

By Jeremy Frankel | Newsmax,  19 December 2021:

The state of Michigan last week published data that shows schools with no mask mandates had “similar” COVID-19 case rates to schools with mandates.

The report, titled Michigan COVID Response Data and Modeling Update,” examined COVID-19 data from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Disease Surveillance System as recently as December 3rd, of school students ages 5-18, according to the Blaze.

It stated that “case rates in 5–18-year-olds have become more similar across mask rule types.”

TheBlaze adds that schools with few or no mask rules had fewer 7-day average cases per 100,000 students than schools with strict or partial mask rules, and that the report stated that “differences due to masking potentially being washed out by transmission in other settings.”

However, the report did not elaborate further on why transmission rates, regardless of mask mandates, were similar.

A peer-reviewed study by researchers from the University of Louisville released in August had similar findings, concluding that “mask mandates and use likely did not affect COVID-19 case growth.”

POLL: 40% Of Democrats Say ‘Biden Deserves to Be Impeached’

Only 40%? Can so many Americans be that cracked?

Biden Gets Devastating Impeachment News from Democrats: Poll

By Western Journal, December 23, 2021:

Do you think President Joe Biden deserves to be impeached for his failure in Afghanistan? A whopping 60 percent of voters do — including 40 percent of Democrats. The startling numbers come from a new Rasmussen poll that indicates Biden’s popularity is slipping not only overall but also among a key demographic, the very one that propelled him to the White House: the members of his own party. By Taylor Penley, The Western Journal, September 3, 2021:The majority of several demographics agreed that Biden deserves to be impeached, including 56 percent of black voters, 61 percent of other non-whites and 58 percent of those with no party affiliation.All told, a full 60 percent of voters think Biden needs to go.

Completing this poll entitles you to The Western Journal news updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

The poll was conducted on Monday and Tuesday among 1,000 likely voters with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.

It’s glaringly obvious: Biden can’t escape his stunning failure in Afghanistan, nor should he be allowed to.

Yet as his approval rating wanes and he sits at the point of no return, he doubles down on his decision to execute the withdrawal as he did, blames anyone and everyone for the consequences, and continues his run of disregard and disrespect.

It’s no wonder even Democrats can’t defend this.

We’ve also heard calls for Biden’s impeachment from another shocking source: his longtime friend Sen. Lindsey Graham.

“[Biden] deserves a lot of accountability for this. And I’m sure it will be coming,” he told CBS on Sunday, according to The Guardian.

12 Days of Inflation: Here’s How Much the Gifts from the Popular Christmas Tune Would Cost in Biden’s America

“I think it’s dereliction of duty to leave hundreds of Americans behind enemy lines, turn them into hostages, to abandon thousands of Afghans who fought honorably along our side, to create conditions for another 9/11 that are now through the roof,” he added.

Of course, Graham isn’t the only GOP lawmaker who wants Biden to be removed from office. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has already introduced articles of impeachment against him.

Across the pond, the British Parliament help Biden in contempt over the disaster in Afghanistan, with one member even questioning his fitness for the presidency.

“If this does destroy Biden’s presidency, you have to question his fitness for the role,” MP Bob Seely said. “You have got to address Biden’s intellectual fitness and health fitness for the role.”

“I’m sorry, he is just gaga … he doesn’t have a grip. How many slip-ups before people think, yep, he can’t do the job.”

The discontent was inevitable, and the effects of Biden’s botched withdrawal will linger for years — including, no doubt, at the polls.

If 40 percent of Democrats have withdrawn their support from the leader of their party, 2022 and ’24 are bound to be interesting.

Census: Americans Are Fleeing Big Liberal States

Census: Americans Are Fleeing Big Liberal States

By: TrishIntel.Com Staff, December 22, 2021

(The Center Square) – New York, California and Illinois saw the largest declines in population due to outmigration in 2020, according to new U.S. Census Bureau data, as overall population growth slowed to the lowest levels since the nation’s founding.

The U.S. added only 392,665 people between July 1, 2020, and July 1, 2021 – about a 0.1% increase – when accounting for births, deaths and international migration.

“Population growth has been slowing for years because of lower birth rates and decreasing net international migration, all while mortality rates are rising due to the aging of the nation’s population,” Kristie Wilder, a demographer in the Population Division at the Census Bureau, said in a statement. “Now, with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this combination has resulted in a historically slow pace of growth.”

California lost 367,299 people this past year through domestic migration, which accounts for those moving into the state and those moving out. For the first time since 1850, California’s population declined in last year’s Census estiates [sic], when it lost 70,000 residents. Increasing taxes, restrictive policies on businesses and ongoing lockdowns have led individuals and Silicon Valley companies to exit the Golden State in record numbers over the past two years.

New York lost the next most people over the past year – 352,185 on net – because of migration.

Illinois, which has been losing population for years, lost the third most…

PODCAST: A patriot mother does the impossible and wins two ‘write-in’ election campaigns

I was initially shocked to learn that so few parents wanted to hear the story a determined mother who successfully flipped her 4-3 liberal school board into a 5-2 conservative majority.

I thought Patriots would be excited, emboldened and ready to duplicate her efforts to rid themselves of pompous, out-of-touch, parent-hating school board members.

I was wrong. Few have even bothered to read past the headline!

Last week, I sat down with as she told me her remarkable story of mapping out a roadmap to overturn her local school board during last November’s elections. That roadmap would require her to achieve victory using ‘write-in’ candidates only, something unheard of in America.

No one wins elections through ‘write-in’ campaigns!

So how could she possibly achieve TWO write-in victories, flipping her local school board into a dominant conservative majority?

She joined Shout Out Patriots to explain that strategy in detail.

But why don’t parents want to hear it? Duplicate it? Especially parents outraged over school face-mask mandates, Critical Race Theory, and gender-fluid indoctrination?

Then I reminded myself of this sad fact:

It’s easier to complain than do something. It’s easier to watch others than do the hard work. As Americans, we’re more accustomed to sitting in the cheering section than playing on the field.

So, though Mary Katherine Bennett has a remarkable – if not genuinely miraculous – story to tell, it’s not for everyone. But it is perfect for those who want to take back control of their child’s education – and health – and ultimately win the future of America.

Watch our podcast:

Mary Katherine Bennett’s son is autistic and she didn’t want her young child forced to wear a face mask all day at school. The liberal school board dug in their heels and demanded to see her child’s medical records. She dug in her heels and they didn’t get them. What they did get was far worse.

Martin Mawyer, president of Christian Action Network, joins Pastor Jason Binder to learn how Mrs. Bennett and her fellow Patriots took to the streets with ‘write-in’ campaigns.  When the votes were counted, they turned a 4-3 liberal school board into a 5-2 conservative majority. But, wait! Write-in campaigns never work, do they? And twice during the same election? Her stunning story will leave you smiling and shouting.

Patriots. They need a voice. We give it to them!

Coal Hit Record Highs in 2021

China and India drive coal to record highs.


Reports of the death of coal are, to quote Mark Twain, “greatly exaggerated.”

In fact, the International Energy Agency (IEA) reveals that coal is having its best year ever, propelled by insatiable demand from China and India.

Read the IEA’s full “Coal 2021” report at CFACT.org.

Here are a few eye-opening takeaways:

  • The price of coal more than doubled, hitting an all time high of $298 this fall, up from $81 last year
  • “Coal is the largest source of electricity generation”
  • Global coal power is “on course to increase by 9% to 10,350 terawatt-hours (TWh) – a new all-time high”
  • Coal is the “second largest source of primary energy”
  • China, which both produces and imports the most coal, increased its coal use another 9%
  • Chinese power accounts for “one-third of global coal consumption”
  • Chinese “overall coal use is more than half of the global total”
  • India, the number two coal user, increased coal 12%
  • “Global coal consumption is not on the Net Zero trajectory”

Click Here for a chart showing coal use by region with the IEA’s projections out to 2024

China and India value coal so highly that they worked together to scuttle tough anti-coal language at COP 26, the UN climate conference in Glasgow, prompting COP President Alok Sharma, MP, to issue a tear-filled apology.

While China and India ramp up their economies, the Biden Administration is strangling American energy production, crippling decades of work toward energy independence, and causing severe inflationary pressure.

Efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (if that’s your thing) count for nothing with nations such as China and India eager to supply the goods we no longer manufacture… and expand their fossil fuel energy use as fast as their economies will allow.

What Does ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ have to do with the Vietnam War?

“There are no extraordinary men… just extraordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.” – William Frederick Halsey Jr., fleet admiral in the United States Navy during World War II.


I went to see the latest Spider-Man film titled “No Way Home.” After thinking about it I began to connect with and embrace what the fictional character Peter Parker went through and what I went through upon returning home from Vietnam in December, 1968.

You see, I, and my Vietnam brotherhood of veterans, like Spider-Man had no way home.

It’s ironic that I watched this film exactly 53 years after my flying home from Vietnam back to my wife and family in St. Louis, Missouri.

It’s also ironic that the sub-title of the film is No Way Home.

You see my fellow Vietnam veterans, my brothers in arms, like Peter Parker, were ostracized upon our return home. We were called baby killers, spat upon and canceled by our nation. We were even shunned by WWII and Korean War veterans as unworthy. That is why we had to create our own veterans organizations like the Vietnam Brotherhood.

As Peter Parker was demonized by the media so too were we Vietnam veterans. Just as Spider-Man was attacked for fighting evil on the streets of New York City, so too were we attacked for fighting the evils of Communism in the streets of Hue and Saigon, and in the rice patties and the jungles of South Vietnam.

Today a Vietnam veteran greets a fellow Vietnam veteran with the phrase “welcome home brother.” Why? Because we weren’t welcomed home by our fellow countrymen and women. Even our government turned against us.

To this day the names of Jane Fonda and John Kerry will live in infamy to those who served in Vietnam. “Hanoi” Jane and Kerry colluded with the communist regime, which allowed South Vietnam to fall to our communist enemies.

It seems we are seeing the same thing happening today with North Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

To this day I know that our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines won the Vietnam war on the ground.

Where we lost the Vietnam war was on the streets of America and in the halls of the U.S. Congress.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

It’s ironic that the film depicts past actors who played Spider-Man in previous films fighting together against their common enemies who have returned from the past.

You see we Vietnam veterans fought against the Communist North Vietnamese Army and the Viet Cong. They have now returned to Washington, D.C. not as Vietnam War protestors but as elected political leaders bent on fundamentally changing the United States of America into the Communist States of America. We all now once again have a common enemy and its name is Marxism.

I never thought, like Peter Parker, that I was doing something wrong by fighting the evils of Communism. But I, like Peter Parker, was pushed, pushed aside by my fellow Americans for serving in perhaps the greatest cause possible – the defence of the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The famous phrase first spoken in the original Spider-Man was restated in Spider-Man: No Way Home, “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Unfortunately, today’s political leaders do not take responsibility for their own actions but they are demanding more and more power. Ironic to say the least?

In the film Peter Parker, with the aid of Dr. Strange, erases all memories of Spider-Man.

We Vietnam veterans cannot erase all the negative memories of those who protested against the war and against our participation in that great crusade against Communism in Southeast Asia. A crusade that was started by President Eisenhower, expanded by President Kennedy and further expanded by President Johnson.

What we, unlike Peter Parker, can do is remember why we fought and how we won the war in Vietnam but lost the war on the streets of Washington, D.C. and in the halls of Congress. I will never forgive nor forget how our elected leaders abandoned our South Vietnamese brothers and sisters who fought shoulder-to-shoulder with us.

In August I sadly watched as we left our citizens behind in Afghanistan after the collapse of Kabul.

History really does repeat itself. The collapse of Saigon in 1974 looks eerily like the collapse of Kabul in 2021.

It is also ironic that there are three Spider-Men in the film “No Way Home” which mirrors the three Vietnam soldiers in a statue titled The Three Servicemen, by Frederick Hart, located near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Bottom Line

I served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division as a field artillery forward observer with A Company, 2nd Battalion, 501st Airborne. I was there from December 1967 to December 1968. I was there for the 1968 Tet Offensive.

I, and my brothers in arms, served with honor at the behest of our nation. The majority of those who served in Vietnam, like me, volunteered to fight against the communist incursion.

A good friend sent me the video below, a tribute to our Vietnam veterans narrated by Mr. Sam Elliot. The video tells only part of the story.

The story that I know is that the media was against the war and supported our enemies. They printed everything bad they could find, some true,  but most were lies. I personally witnessed a civilian war correspondent demanding to get on a medevac helicopter to report on a story about how our unit suffered casualties from a friendly fire incident. The helicopter was sent to evacuate the severely wounded. The embedded correspondent wanted to take the place of one of our wounded so he could file his story. The company commander had a different view point. While his story did get filed we saved our wounded first and foremost.

This was the first time in U.S. history that the media began using “fake news” to bring about the defeat of U.S. wartime policy in a foreign land.

It began when Walter Cronkite visited Vietnam during the 1968 Tet Offensive and upon his return to the United States declared on CBS Evening News that the Vietnam war was “unwinnable.’

Never forget the lessons of cancelling an entire generation of American soldiers.

Just like all the criminals that Spider-Man fought against were brought back to the present day. So to have those, like the ghosts of Ho Chi Min, Stalin and Mao, who wished to turn American into a Communist regime returned but this time to Washington, D.C. in 2021.

Sad but true.

Christmas with the Presidents

For many of us, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is special for old and young. As Charles Dickens once observed, “For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.”

Several American presidents have made interesting observations about Christmas.

John Calvin Coolidge, our 30th president, was a man of few words. He noted,

“Christmas is not a time nor season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy is to have the real spirit of Christmas. If we think on these things, there will be born in us a Savior and over us will shine a star sending its gleam of hope to the world.”

During World War II, on Christmas Eve 1943, our 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, gave an address to reassure the nation that we can hope for peace, since Christmas marks the birth of the Prince of Peace. Said FDR:

“I can say to you that at last we may look forward into the future with real, substantial confidence that, however great the cost, ‘peace on Earth, goodwill toward men’ can be and will be realized and ensured.”

As I write this, I am looking at my dad’s edition of the pocket New Testament issued by the U.S. Army in 1942 (although dad served in the Navy). This mini-Bible included a forward by the Commander-in-Chief, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in which he wrote,

“Throughout the centuries men of many faiths and diverse origins have found in the Sacred Book words of wisdom, counsel and inspiration.” Somehow, it’s hard to picture today’s military issuing a copy of the Bible to the Armed Forces.

Meanwhile, on December 24, 1945, on the first Christmas Eve since the end of World War II, President Harry S. Truman described some of the events of the very first Christmas in Bethlehem.

Our 33rd president stated,

“Let us not forget that the coming of the Savior brought a time of long peace to the Roman World. It is, therefore, fitting for us to remember that the spirit of Christmas is the spirit of peace, of love, of charity to all men. From the manger of Bethlehem came a new appeal to the minds and hearts of men: ‘A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another.’”

He went on to say that love is the answer to our world’s needs—and love is found in that baby in the manger:

“In love, which is the very essence of the message of the Prince of Peace, the world would find a solution for all its ills. I do not believe there is one problem in this country or in the world today which could not be settled if approached through the teaching of the Sermon on the Mount. The poets’ dream, the lesson of priest and patriarch and the prophets’ vision of a new heaven and a new earth, all are summed up in the message delivered in the Judean hills beside the Sea of Galilee. Would that the world would accept that message in this time of its greatest need!”

Just one example of a nugget to be found in that Sermon on the Mount of which Truman speaks is the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Christ’s teaching has universal application and meaning to all mankind.

No wonder our third president, Thomas Jefferson, although not orthodox in his understanding of Christian doctrines, understood that no one taught morality better than Christ.

Jefferson said,

“Of all the systems of morality ancient or modern, which have come under my observation, none appear to me so pure as that of Jesus.” (Letter to William Canby, September 18, 1813). Surely, the Golden Rule would be an example of that.

Our 34th president, Dwight Eisenhower noted in 1954,

“This year, even as two thousand years ago when the Prince of Peace was born into the world, the drums of war are still….Mankind’s unquenchable hope for peace burns brighter than for many years…. As I light the Nation’s Christmas tree, ‘God rest you…Let nothing you dismay.’”

Finally, Ronald Reagan, the 40th president, went further than many of his predecessors, rightly looking beyond Jesus’ moral teachings to the deeper and more essential point of His incarnation.

Reagan pointed out on December 24, 1983,

“Some celebrate Christmas as the birthday of a great teacher and philosopher. But to other millions of us, Jesus is much more. He is divine, living assurance that God so loved the world He gave us His only begotten Son so that by believing in Him and learning to love each other we could one day be together in paradise.”

Amen and Merry Christmas.

The Atlantic Claims ‘More People Carrying Guns Tends to Result in More Shootings.’ Decades of Data Show They’re Wrong

The Atlantic recently suggested the surge of violence in 2020 was the result of the increase in firearms sales in 2020. The claim is pure fiction.


A couple of months ago, The Atlantic published an article written by staff writer David A. Graham that explores the surge of violence the United States experienced in 2020.

Overall the article, which analyzes findings from the FBI’s “Uniform Crime Report,” is quite good. It effectively breaks down what we know and—more importantly—what we don’t know about the latest crime trends in America, which in 2020 saw a record surge in the murder rate amid a broader rise of violence.

On one particular point, however, Graham is simply wrong.

Graham notes that sales of firearms jumped in 2020, as did police confiscation of illegal guns, and he attempts to tie this to the surge in violence.

“You can ask law-abiding people or you can ask people who do not abide by the law, ‘Why are you armed with a firearm?’ ‘I need to protect myself,’” Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri at St. Louis, tells Graham.

Precisely what Rosenfeld meant by this statement is unclear, but Graham’s next sentence is clear.

“That creates a vicious cycle: More people carrying guns tends to result in more shootings, which in turn heightens the desire to carry a weapon for protection,” Graham writes. “When crime is decreasing, this dynamic helps it continue to fall, but once it begins to rise, the feedback loop turns ugly.”

Whether this claim is Graham’s or Rosenfield’s is unclear. No link or citation is offered to support the assertion. What we do know is the claim that “more people carrying guns tends to result in more shootings” is simply untrue.

As economist Mark Perry pointed out several years ago, the US saw gun violence steadily decrease over multiple decades as gun ownership surged.

“According to data retrieved from the Centers for Disease Control, there were 7 firearm-related homicides for every 100,000 Americans in 1993 (see light blue line in chart),” Perry wrote. “By 2013…the gun homicide rate had fallen by nearly 50% to only 3.6 homicides per 100,000 population. ”

This decline, Perry points out, occurred as the number of privately owned firearms in America surged from about 185 million in 1993 to 357 million in 2013.

And in case you’re wondering, non-fatal shootings followed a similar decline as fatal shootings, as Vox reported at the time. This is part of a larger decline in gun violence that saw “a 39 percent decline in gun homicides between 1993 and 2011 and a staggering 69 percent decline in non-fatal firearms crimes.”

Mr. Graham, who has also reported for Newsweek and The Wall Street Journal, is no doubt a fine writer and reporter. (Many of his points in the article on the FBI’s recent crime report are insightful.) But he’s simply wrong that more people possessing guns “tends to result in more shootings.” The data simply do not support this claim. During this “staggering” decades-long trend of falling firearms crimes, gun ownership steadily increased the entire time.

None of this is to say that gun ownership caused the decline in gun violence. It very well may have, but that’s a more difficult question to answer. For instance, Max Ehrenfreund, a Harvard scientist, has posited that the decline in gun violence may have stemmed from a decline in alcoholism, more police working the streets, the bullish economy of the Reagan years, and even less lead exposure.

Ehrenfreund says researchers don’t really know for certain why the decline in violence happened, but he said one thing is clear: “America has become a much less violent place.”

The decline in gun violence was no doubt linked to many factors, but it’s certainly possible the rise of gun ownership was one of them.

As Lawrence Reed has pointed out, compelling research shows guns prevent some 2.5 million crimes a year in America—6,849 every day—nearly a half million of which are of a life-threatening nature. And it’s not exactly hard to see why. After all, 60 percent of convicted felons told researchers that they avoided committing such crimes when they suspected the target was armed.

If you’re suspicious of these statistics, it’s worth noting that the Centers for Disease Control, in a report commissioned by President Obama following the 2012 Sandy Hook Massacre, estimated that crimes prevented by guns may be even higher: up to 3 million annually (8,200 per day).

Again, we don’t know for certain. These are estimates. What we do know is that guns aren’t just used to commit crimes; they are also used to stop and deter crimes.

In his famous essay That Which is Seen, and That Which is Not Seen, the great economist Frédéric Bastiat noted there is a pervasive tendency for people to focus on the visible effects of a given policy or action and miss the unseen consequences.

Gun control proponents often make this mistake. They focus on crimes committed with guns (the seen)—some of which are truly the things of nightmares—but ignore all the unseen, all of the crimes prevented by firearms.

Some may not be prepared to accept the idea that guns prevent thousands of crimes in America every single day. That’s ok.

But The Atlantic should correct its claim that “more people carrying guns tends to result in more shootings.” It’s pure fiction.

DC Librarian Who Made Children Reenact Holocaust Is Failed Dem Candidate, Convicted Fraudster and Animal Abuser

DC Librarian Who Made Children Reenact Holocaust Is Failed Dem Candidate, Convicted Fraudster, and Animal Abuser

Kimberlynn Jurkowski defrauded New Jersey of $24k, abused dogs

By: Matthew Foldi • Washington Free Beacon December 21, 2021 3:25 pm

The Washington, D.C., public school librarian who made third graders reenact graphic scenes from the Holocaust is a Democrat who claims she ran for office in New Jersey, where she was convicted of defrauding the state through a tutoring scam and charged with several counts of animal abuse.

Kimberlynn Jurkowski was placed on leave this week after parents complained to Watkins Elementary School that she made students role-play the Holocaust, assigning students to be Jews and pretend to die in gas chambers and dig mass graves, according to the Washington Post. One student was assigned to be Adolf Hitler, who carried out the Holocaust, Jurkowski told the students, “because the Jews ruined Christmas.” A Washington Free Beacon investigation found that Jurkowski was hired by the D.C. public school after a scandalous tenure as a librarian in New Jersey, where she ran in 2010 for a local school board as a Democrat, according to an image posted to her Twitter account.

There is no record of Jurkowski serving on the school board for Hamilton Township in Atlantic County, where she says she ran for office. There is record, however, of New Jersey catching Jurkowski bilking taxpayers out of approximately $24,000 through a program designed to help the children of the state’s educators. The Hamilton Township district paid for Jurkowski’s two children to receive tutoring—but she continued to bill the district for reimbursements once the tutoring stopped. She was convicted of fraud and forced to forfeit her librarian job, according to court records.

Jurkowski’s legal problems continued in 2019 when she faced four charges of animal cruelty for leaving her dogs out in the cold. According to coverage at the time from Pet Rescue Report, Jurkowski left five dogs behind to survive frigid temperatures in a dilapidated environment. Body camera footage from police officers called to the site shows “the entire property was completely run down,” with “dogs in pens with sheets of plywood leaning against a fence to act as shelter.”

One of the dogs, an older Rottweiler named Poseidon, could barely walk, and was found dead and frozen solid to the ground in one of the pens. The dog’s death prompted animal rights activists to launch a #JusticeForPoseidon campaign.

The principal of Watkins Elementary School, Scott Berkowitz, did not return a request for comment on Jurkowski. D.C. Public Schools did not respond to multiple requests for comment, including about whether it was familiar with Jurkowski’s criminal record prior to hiring her.

Since working in D.C. Public Schools, Jurkowski has struck an ultra-partisan combative tone online. Her Twitter account is filled with retweets of calls to abolish the police and defend Palestinian terrorism. One Al Jazeera post she shared claims that a Palestinian terrorist named Ahmad Erekat was killed by Israeli police but fails to mention that he was shot after ramming his car into Israelis.

Watkins Elementary School is located just outside a city ward represented by a Democratic lawmaker who claimed that Jews control the weather.

Facebook allowed photos of beheadings from ISIS and the Taliban to be tagged as ‘insightful’ and ‘engaging’

Facebook was only interested in shutting down the speech of dissenters from the Leftist agenda, not Islamic jihadis.

Facebook allowed photos of beheadings and violent hate speech from ISIS and the Taliban to be tagged as ‘insightful’ and ‘engaging’ – despite claims to crack down on extremists, report reveals

by Jonathan Chadwick, MailOnline, December 21, 2021:

Facebook allowed photos of beheadings and violent hate speech from ISIS and the Taliban to be tagged as ‘insightful’ and ‘engaging’, a new report reveals.

Extremists have turned to the social media platform as a weapon ‘to promote their hate-filled agenda and rally supporters’ on hundreds of groups, according to the review of activity between April and December this year.

These groups have sprouted up across the platform over the last 18 months and vary in size from a few hundred to tens of thousands of members, the review found.

One pro-Taliban group created in spring this year and had grown to 107,000 members before it was deleted, the review, published by Politico, claims.

Overall, extremist content is ‘routinely getting through the net’, despite claims from Meta – the company that owns Facebook – that it’s cracking down on extremists.

‘We do not allow individuals or organisations involved in organised crime, including those designated by the US government as specially designated narcotics trafficking kingpins (SDNTKs); hate; or terrorism, including entities designated by the US government as foreign terrorist organisations (FTOs) or specially designated global terrorists (SDGTs), to have a presence on the platform. We also don’t allow other people to represent these entities.

‘We do not allow leaders or prominent members of these organisations to have a presence on the platform, symbols that represent them to be used on the platform or content that praises them or their acts. In addition, we remove any coordination of substantive support for these individuals and organisations.’

The groups were discovered by Moustafa Ayad, an executive director at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a think tank that tracks online extremism….

Will Unvaxxed Sperm Become The New Bitcoin? Are Covid vaccines the new Agent Orange?

I saw the below tweet and it peaked my curiosity. Will unvaxxed sperm actually become the new Bitcoin? If so, why?

According to the Center for Disease Control more than 204 million people in the U.S. are fully vaccinated. That’s about 61% of the population, with a further 12% partially vaccinated. On top of this, about 62 million people have been given booster jabs.

I did a little search and found this column on ViceNew.com titled “‘Unvaxxed Sperm’ Is Trying to Become the Anti-Vax Bitcoin” bDavid Gilbert.

David reports:

If you ask the developers behind a new cryptocurrency called Unvaxxed Sperm if they’re opposed to vaccines, they’ll claim to be unsure.

“We’re not anti-vaccine,” one of the developers called Jason, who would only provide his first name, told VICE News, claiming that the project is “here to ensure the continuity of objective scientific inquiry and the freedom of discourse.”

But moments later, another developer who wouldn’t reveal his identity and simply goes by the name “Fauci,” said: “To a degree, I’d say we are anti-vaccine.”

Read the full article.

In December 7, 2021 in an article titled “Anti-VAX Group Creates ‘Unvaxxed Sperm” Crypto because God is Dead and We have Killed Him.  What On Earth? Tony Tran from The Byte wrote:

Because we live in a nightmare of our own making, a group of ardent morons have created a new cryptocurrency based on the idea that vaccines lower your sperm count.

The cryptocurrency, dubbed “Unvaxxed Sperm,” launched earlier this month, Vice reports. Its developers wrongly claim that most people don’t need the COVID vaccine, and are fierce advocates of quack treatments such as ivermectin. They also told the website that the project is to “ensure the continuity of objective scientific inquiry and the freedom of discourse.”

Though Unvaxxed Sperm initially saw significant growth when it launched, it seems to have blown its load early and crashed over the weekend.

Still, the developers of the crypto hope that its absolutely stupid name will draw more people into the anti-vax community, according to Vice.

Read the article.

WeCovid produced this video on the fertility and Covid vaccines:

Do you believe the above video is scientific truth or propaganda?

Here’s another perspective on Covid vaccinations. Dr. Mark Bailey and Dr. John Bevan-Smith published a paper titled “The COVID-19 Fraud & War on Humanity.” The video below talks about what they found.

EveryDayHealth.com reported:

More than 125,000 pregnant women have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So far, more than 22,000 of these women have been hospitalized and 161 have died.

COVID-19 patients who are pregnant are twice as likely to require admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) and 70 percent more likely to die than individuals who aren’t pregnant, according to the CDC. A record number of pregnant women — 22 — died of COVID-19 in August, the CDC reported in September 2021.

[ … ]

study published in January 2021 in JAMA Internal Medicine looked at outcomes for 406,446 women who gave birth in U.S. hospitals from April 1 through November 23, 2020, including 6,380 mothers with COVID-19. In this study, the death rate for pregnant women with COVID-19 was 141 per 100,000 women, compared with 5 fatalities per 100,000 uninfected pregnant women. COVID-19 infections were also associated with higher rates of heart attacks, potentially fatal blood clots in the leg, and dangerously high blood pressure during pregnancy known as preeclampsia.

Who do you trust if you want to get pregnant? The CDC, your pediatrician or your common sense?

The Bottom Line

Question: Do doctors and scientist really know the long term effects of all of the Covid vaccines?

Answer: NO!

Question: Do we know what the long term effects of the Covid vaccines are of women who are pregnant and the unborn?

Answer: NO!

I am remined of the time when I was in Vietnam and exposed to Agent Orange. The federal government, the Veterans Administration, doctors and scientists told us who served in Vietnam that Agent Orange was not the cause of the cancers and human anomalies like Type 2 Diabetes Vietnam veterans were suffering from. It took decades for the truth to come out.

We know today that there are serious side effects to the Covid vaccines. We still do not know how these vaccines fundamentally change the human body.

Do I trust the government and these doctors now? I think not.

We will see what the long term effects are of all of  these experimental Covid vaccines and now pills.

These entrepreneurs are raising an issue that needs to be raised.

The issue is are the unvaxxed, which includes large numbers of people who have natural immunity to Covid, healthier sperm donors.

Are  Covid vaccines the new Agent Orange?

Maybe we these vaccine passports will come in handy when women decide to marry and carry children. Would you rather carry the child of a vaxxed or unvaxxed man? That is the question.

He acknowledges his Oath of Office to support and defend the Constitution and not some administrative government sycophants.

So what will happen to him now?  Probably confinement to quarters and a Court Martial.  This is totally wrong.

Shocking Truth: More Children Dead From Vax Than COVID

When the history books are written, the Covid government response will be labeled as the greatest medical calamity in world history!


We live in a world where radical politicians and propagandists in the mainstream media shame Americans into getting a vaccine that’s not a vaccine that does not stop the transmission of, nor the onset of, a simple virus that has a near 99% survival rate.

It’s a world where children are being forced to vax when the mortality rate from Covid-19 among kids is effectively zero. However, the mortality rate from the shots is higher than from the disease itself!

In this edition of the Ledger Report, Graham Ledger speaks with Dr. Paul Thomas of Oregon who, in the process of trying to protect children from needless injections, has had his medical license attacked by the Medical Board.

Left’s Guns Falling Silent in War on Christmas

The Left is losing the war on Christmas – badly – so now it’s trying to convince you it never happened.  That’s a laugh.

There are the usual atheist groups flying ‘religious freedom’ banners doing their usual thing this year – protesting Christmas wreaths on military graves and installing yet another boring Satanic display in a state capitol building.  These people are violating Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the most important of which is ‘don’t repeat your stunts, don’t be boring.’

But the rest of the Left is mostly missing in action this year.  Things have definitely changed from just a few years ago.  (These links are old and may not work.)

In 2015 alone:

  • a VA hospital in Virginia banned Christmas trees. Washington Times 
  • Starbucks moved to plain red holiday cups.  Gateway Pundit
  • the University of Tennessee told employees to “ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise” and no more “Secret Santa”.  The Tennesseean
  • a city councilwoman resigned to protest her town’s Christmas tree lighting.  She was later reinstated and appointed to head a newly-created diversity committee.  Washington Post
  • The ‘Killing Jesus’ mini-series drew the largest audience in National Geographic cable channel history. Truth Revolt
  • And a Kentucky school district purged scripture references from a ‘Charlie Brown Christmas’ program. Daily Signal

Ah, the good old days.  But, according to the Left, these things never happened, there never was a war on Christmas.  It doesn’t exist.  Conservatives made the whole thing up.

“There is not, and there never has been, a widespread campaign to harass, exclude, or persecute anyone who dares to wish a stranger a ‘Merry Christmas,’ as the Christmas warriors would have it,” an atheist recently wrote in Politico.  According to this writer, the Left’s war on Christmas is just a “conflict invented to fill right-wing cable airtime,” a creation of the “grievance-industrial complex”, and an “effort by activist Christians to retain their cultural supremacy.”

And, of course, it’s all Donald Trump’s fault for appointing himself General Patton to fight the war on Christmas.  Trump said recently, “When I started campaigning, I said, ‘You’re going to say “Merry Christmas” again,’ and now, people are saying it.” What left-wing article would be complete or even get published without bashing Trump?

But I digress.  In the upside down world of this writer, the Left never tried to embarrass everyone out of saying “Merry Christmas”.   No, it was the Right that started the whole thing by turning the phrase into a political weapon to pound on the Left.  Sure, and I’m Santa Claus.    The author’s bottom line:  the Right should give up its phony claims there ever was a war on Christmas and just go away.

That’s ridiculous.  This is gaslighting of the highest order.  It presupposes the atheist groups never made an issue out of Christmas without anyone asking them to.  Even today, you can go to the Freedom From Religion Foundation website and read all about how Christmas is just a relic of sun worship.  The phony narrative presupposes there never was an endless parade of legal challenges to nativity scenes at the Supreme Court.  So many we now have the reindeer rule requiring jurisdictions to mix in other symbols with their nativity scenes to pass constitutional muster.  And it presupposes that the University of Tennessee, the National Geographic cable channel, and all the other anti-Christmas warriors didn’t have guns blazing in 2015, as noted above.

Here’s what’s going on.  The Left is losing the war on Christmas, just like it’s losing the abortion fight and the war on parents.  So the Left is trying to get you to believe it was all in your head and you’re delusional for thinking they’ve been up to no good and trying to destroy Christmas.  Don’t fall for this line.  They’re known liars – Trump/Russia collusion hoax, anyone? – and, what’s more, they think it’s their duty to lie to you because truth doesn’t matter; winning is the only thing.

So now I wish you all – gay, straight, Christian, Jewish, atheist – a Merry Christmas.  I love saying that because it drives the Left nuts.
