Black Women Hit Hardest by Biden-ployment Slump

Until the Black community abandons the Democrat plantation, the suffering will only intensify.

Black Women Hit Hardest by Biden-ployment Slump

By: John Carney, Breitbart, February 2021:

The first jobs report of the Biden administration saw black women the hardest hit by a slumping labor market.

Even though the nationwide unemployment rate fell in January, the unemployment rate for black women jumped from 7.7 percent to 9 percent, the biggest increase among demographic groups reported by the Department of Labor.

The unemployment rate for black men rose just one-tenth of a percentage point. The unemployment rate for white men rose three-tenths of a point to 6.2 percent. The unemployment rate for white women remained at 5.3 percent.

Asian unemployment also jumped in January. The rate went from 5.8 to 6.6 percent. The Department of Labor does not separate Asian unemployment by sex.

The unemployment rate for Hispanic men fell one-tenth of a percentage point to 8.9 percent. The rate for Hispanic women rose from 8.8 percent to 9.2 percent.

The jump in unemployment for black women as the Biden administration begins makes for an awkward contrast with the administration’s goal of lowering racial and gender inequalities.

“I’ve been an economist for a long time, and one of the areas where I’ve focused my attention is on the racial disparity in economic outcomes,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in talk with members from local Black Chambers of Commerce on Friday.

The loss of jobs following Biden’s election is already testing that focus.

Trump To Give Speech At CPAC In First Major Post-Presidency Appearance

Former President Donald Trump will reportedly make his first major public appearance since leaving the White House later this month at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Trump will address the conference’s audience Sunday, Feb. 28, according to a report from Fox News. The event, which is typically held in the Washington, D.C. area, will instead take place in Orlando, Florida this year from Feb. 25-28.

The former president is expected to speak about the future of the Republican Party and President Joe Biden’s immigration policies, a source familiar with the speech reportedly told Fox News. It will be the first public speech given by Trump since his farewell address on Jan. 19, although he did recently make several cable television appearances.

Trump has appeared at CPAC eight times since 2011, including all four years the event was held during his presidency. There have been indications that Trump intends to stay active in Republican politics despite now being out of office, and 75% of Republicans say they want him to play a major role in the party going forward.

Fight Back Locally! Second in a Series of Posts on Community Organizing

With the Democrats in complete control of Washington, DC, your work must now center on local organizing against policies coming down from on high, and honestly your energy should have been focused there for the last couple of decades as you know the hard core Leftists long ago set their sights on winning mayoral races and county government contests.

Because my request from readers came in response to a post about what one could do now that Biden/Harris are opening our borders and planning to admit 62,500 third world refugees, many from countries that hate us, by September 30th, I focused my first in the series post on the Refugee Admissions Program.

All of the information I am giving you is commonsense. I just hope by saying it it will inspire you to do it!

That first commonsense lesson instructed those of you who want to fight back to get your facts first. That applies to whatever issue you want to pursue locally.

By the way, one really appealing issue is to get involved in ensuring election integrity at your local election board. Or, maybe it is fighting for the Second Amendment like these folks did!

OUTSTANDING: West Virginia County Becomes Second Amendment Sanctuary

Here is my first post on Community Organizing 101 which you can find in the right hand side bar of both RRW and ‘Frauds and Crooks.’

What do we do now? Fight Back Locally!

Getting ready for Chairman Joe’s refugees in Montana (your state too!)

Here is news from Missoula, Montana I will use as a case study where the refugee industry, that only got a foothold in the state a few years ago (see my extensive Montana archive at RRW), is gearing up for new arrivals.

From Montana Public Radio:

Missoula Resettlement Group Prepping For Nation’s Refugee Increase

An international group [IRC works around the world and works closely with the UN that picks the refugees–ed] helping refugees resettle in Missoula plans to expand its operations. The announcement came after news that President Joe Biden is significantly increasing the number of refugees that the U.S. allows into the country.


She [IRC staffer in Missoula] said Missoula’s IRC office currently has four full-time staff members, plus some part-time help and a few workers from programs like AmeriCorps. It is also looking to add five new full-time staff members to start. The group has resettled more than 370 people in Montana since 2016.

This could be happening where you live!  Have you checked the maps I provided?

I assume you have done some homework since last week and figured out if your community/city/county is a resettlement site and who is responsible for their placement in your area.

The next step is to find kindred spirits, fellow patriots, at both the grassroots level and among local elected officials.

If possible, you need to have a friend or two on whatever your elected governing body is.

And, as for like-minded fellow citizens, find a few, both to help do the work and to give you a boost in spirits, as things are going to get rough.  Do not throw up your hands if you can’t find more than a couple of people who are as concerned as you and willing to fight.

It doesn’t take dozens, it only takes a few who don’t care about the abuse you will likely receive.

I’ll use Missoula as an example.  That story above aired this past week. Folks there are already doing this I hope, but what must happen is that there must be a media explosion against the idea of expanding the IRC’s office (by the way, the IRC is headquartered in New York City).

Hey, and this doesn’t just apply to Missoula, all across the state there should be attention brought to the Missoula resettlement because once they get established they will be targeting other locations in Montana especially if the idea of a Chinese meatpacking plant sees the light of day again.

Letters to the editor, and especially social media outrage should first focus on a message that some rich people from NYC want to change Montana while Montana has many Americans out of work and struggling to survive the pandemic. 

Montana surely has not run out of poor people!

Blast local elected officials who will promptly tell you they can’t stop the federal government, so what, make them uncomfortable. 

Also, the Biden Administration is getting rid of extreme vetting of refugees and has opened up resettlement from all Muslim majority countries, so there remains a potential for terrorists and criminals of all stripes to get in through the program.

And, don’t forget the health issues posed by refugees.  They will tell you that refugees are screened for all sorts of health problems but I assure you they are getting in with latent TB and HIV and who knows what else.  The cost of their medical care falls on you.

So, this week, for whatever issue around which you plan to organize locally, find like-minded citizens and elected officials to network with, to share information and to provide support.

And, if you see some news item, like the one in Missoula, be ready to speak up boldly and fearlessly.  They will call you names and try to intimidate you, but do not fear their hateful words.

Ask yourself every day: What work have I done today to save us all from the Socialists’ war on my community and to help Make America Great Again?

The Root of Cultural Decay is Feminism

Excerpt from Chapter 25, “The Root of Cultural Decay Is Feminism,” Rules for Retrogrades: Forty Tactics to Defeat the Radical Left, Timothy J. Gordon, David R. Gordon, TAN Books, 2020 (used with permission).

The family is the building block of society. It is the wellspring and training ground of future generations. It is the natural setting where the virtues are learned: piety, morality, prudence, frugality, decency, etiquette and every good thing for our youth. As the family goes, so goes society. It is precisely for this reason that the family has found itself under full-fledged radical assault in the past half-century.

If radicals succeed in rending asunder the family, in re-educating our kids, they will have won the culture. This is why Vladimir Lenin boasted, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.” The primary vehicle that radicals have used to undermine the family is feminism. It is a bald-faced lie that the purpose of feminism is to achieve “equal rights” for women. That’s merely the party line fed to the ignorant and the bitter. The animating purpose for feminism has always been the overthrow of the “patriarchy,” the headship of men in society and, particularly, in the family.

It is a little-known fact that, even as far back as the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention (the coming-out party for “first-wave” feminism), the attendant bluestockings declared, “The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpation on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her,” and that “In the covenant of marriage, [the wife] is compelled to promise obedience to her husband, he becoming, to all intents and purposes, her master.” Empowering women legally and politically is, for feminists, but a mere means to end patriarchy.

Once the rightful leaders of the family, fathers, are deposed, radicals know that they will be free to remake the family into an arm of their apparatus, or at the very least to dismantle it as a bastion of the old order. Like Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, radicals fear nothing as much as the righteous, broad-shouldered man.

However, patriarchy will not lightly be cast off. It has been willed by God from the beginning of creation. This is the reason why Adam had authority over Eve (as evidenced by him naming her), even prior to the Fall, in the state of original justice. It’s why God empowered Abraham, Noah, Moses, Aaron, and Joseph to guide his people. It’s why Christ selected twelve men to be the princes of his Church. It’s why there continues to be, as a matter of Christian doctrine, an all-male priesthood. It’s the reason why, throughout human history, “There is not, nor has there ever been, any society that even remotely failed to associate authority and leadership in suprafamilial areas with the male” [Steven Goldberg, Why Men Rule: A Theory of Male Dominance (Chicago: Open Court, 1993), 15].

A rebellion against patriarchy is a rebellion against God himself — it’s a rebellion against the order and intelligibility of the universe. As with other failed systems like Marxism, when man attempts to set aside human nature, the consequences are dire. For years, feminists have been attempting to subvert marriage and family life in an attempt to disrupt patriarchy. They have tasted a great deal of success in their endeavor. No-fault divorce has become the law of the land, yielding a marital attrition rate of about 50%. Abortion, which “frees” women from maternal duties, is legal and rampant, producing 57 million human casualties in the United States alone since 1973.

Contraception, another insulator against the chief gift of marriage, children, is virtually ubiquitous, with 98% of sexually active women having used a contraceptive method at some point. Feminists have also taken to attacking motherhood, shaming housewives for being “lazy” and “unambitious” and pressuring them to take up needless glamor-careers for the sake of “empowerment.” Currently, 70% of women have abandoned minor-age children in exchange for careers outside the home, delegating mothering duties to disinterested nannies and sterile day-care centers.

As Pope Pius XII once lamented, when the mother is absent from the home, it becomes “desolate for lack of care,” with members “working separately at different hours in different parts of the city and hardly ever meeting one another, not even for the principal meal or for the rest at the end of the day’s work, much less for family prayers.” Even in many otherwise-functional, traditional marriages, the wife (contrary to scripture — e.g., Titus 2:5, 1 Peter 3:1–7 — and reason) has usurped her husband’s authority and headship over the family, resulting in a de facto leadership vacuum. Hen-pecked, uxorious men are now the rule.

Like Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, radicals fear nothing as much as the righteous, broad-shouldered man.Tweet

The foregoing feminist machinations have produced wages of the most fetid sort. The culture has quickly become crass and despondent. Drug-addiction, pornography, violence and crudity abound. Mass shootings, which are almost always perpetrated by young men from broken homes, are now routine. Of a recent sample of 56 school shooters, a scant 10 were raised in a home with both biological parents. Studies show that “a father’s absence increases antisocial behavior, such as aggression, rule-breaking, delinquency and illegal drug use — especially among boys” [John C. Goodman, “Are Liberals at Fault for the Breakup of the Family?” Forbes, March 16, 2015.

Since 1999, the general suicide rate has increased by 33% in the United States. However, the female suicide rate has increased by 53% to the male’s 26%. For people between the ages of 10 and 24 years old, the suicide rate increased by 56% in the 10-year span between 2007 and 2017. What’s more, kids raised in a single-parent home are more than twice as likely to commit suicide as their peers raised in traditional homes. Even without poring over facts and figures, one can palpably sense that we’re living in a time of general Western malaise — an unseen specter has long haunted us, sending a frisson down the spine of society.

Feminism has failed to deliver even on its empty promises to women. In their paper “The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness,” economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers analyzed women’s happiness trends between 1970 and 2005. To the surprise of many, they discovered that despite women’s newfound “liberation” and “progress,” female contentment scores decreased every decade from the time the survey was administered. In other words, despite a spate of new legal rights and protections, women are less happy than they were in the “dark days” of widespread housewifery. In 1960, women’s self-reported happiness was greater than that of men. By 2005, men were the happier sex. It’s clear that we’ve been sold a defective product.

Central as it is to the health of the culture at large, the family simply cannot be overlooked as the primary locus of the battle for the soul of society. Thus, if the retrograde is to rescue society from the clutches of radicals, he will have to do so by purifying and reinvigorating the family, the most noble and ancient of institutions. This necessitates that we discredit and decisively reject the saccharine hemlock of feminism and its contumacious rebellion against patriarchy.

Men, rise up and grasp firmly the mantle of leadership in your homes. Insisting on wielding your God-given scepter of authority isn’t bullying — it’s your sacred duty. Hold fast to your wedding vows; love your wives; teach your kids diligently; but flee from any temptation to cede your rightful authority, giving way to a practical matriarchy. If we diligently attend to our families, providing for them, educating them, loving them, guiding them and growing them, in one generation we will have taken back control of the culture from the deviants who have long plotted its demise.

Six Capitol Police Officers Suspended, Others Under Investigation in January 6th Riot

What the heck is this all about?

I think Trump’s peaceful patriots are owed an explanation ASAP about what was actually going on at the US Capitol on January 6th.   We need an investigation not run by Nancy Pelosi.

Remember this?

The Blaze has this headline in case you missed it:

6 Capitol officers suspended for alleged role in Jan 6 rioting, 29 others under investigation

6 Capitol Police officers have been suspended with pay for their alleged role in the rioting on Jan. 6, and 29 other officers have been placed under investigation.

A department spokesperson told CNN Thursday that officers could face punishment for violating their policies during the rioting .

“Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day. Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline,” said John Stolnis.

Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio said that one of the suspended officers had taken a selfie with the rioters, while another had worn a “Make America Great Again” hat and helped direct them at the Capitol building.

Four protesters died at the Capitol rioting while one Capitol Police officer died and another two officers committed suicide in the days following the incident. Early reports indicated that the officer, Brian Sicknick, had been died from injuries he suffered from being hit by a fire extinguisher, but that account changed weeks later after more through investigation.

More here.

NPR on Pittman et al:

Former chief Steven Sund “ …told NPR he was rejected in his request for backup ahead of the Jan. 6th because of optics concerns.”

“Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Rules committees announced plans for a February 23 joint oversight hearing to examine security failures.”

That should be must-watch TV.  Mark your calendars—February 23rd!

The Media, Democrats And Social Media Teaming To Damage Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has gained tremendous popularity among conservatives nationwide with his deft handling of the COVID pandemic, personal freedoms, open-for-business attitude and almost Trumpian willingness to fight against the establishment and elitist wisdom but with a Harvard-trained communications ability.

As such, he has been under relentless attack by the Democrat media, seen most obviously when comparing the attack dog media coverage of DeSantis to the lap dog media coverage of New York Gov. Andrew Coumo — a governor that has done a much worse job by every single measurement.

But as DeSantis ramps up for his 2022 re-election campaign, and perhaps eyeing a 2024 run for the White House, the media has become that special combination of hilarious, jaw-dropping and nauseating. The past few days have been a perfect example.

With Florida’s large elderly population, and the elderly by far the most vulnerable to the virus, DeSantis has targeted the 65 and older crowd, along with health care workers, as the top priority.

He’s done it in partnership with hundreds of Publix pharmacies and other pharmacies around the state, state-run distribution sites and unique three-day pop-up clinics to pinpoint smaller areas being missed. These pop-up clinics are aimed at elderly communities with high demand but lower saturation of vaccines. This is actually quite brilliant management, and has been held at mobile home parks, minority communities, The Villages, and so on. DeSantis goes to nearly every one, spreading the word. And it’s smart politics.

Well Tuesday, a pop-up clinic was held in Lakewood Ranch in Manatee County, just another of more than a dozen held without much media comment — until the media attack dogs found an angle to go after DeSantis, and the salivating howling began.

The Bradenton Herald, knowing the demographic makeup of Lakewood Ranch, ran the first story under the headline: “More COVID vaccine coming to Manatee. Only residents of these two zip codes can get it” Well, yes. That’s because they are aimed at specific communities.

The second attack dog, the Orlando Sentinel, picked up the assault, running the specific racial demographics for the zip codes. The result?

Headline: “DeSantis defends his choice of wealthy senior community for pop-up vaccine site”

Lead: A testy Gov. Ron DeSantis blew off criticism Wednesday that the state’s latest pop-up COVID-19 vaccine site was limited to residents of wealthy neighborhoods in Manatee County, including a senior community with family ties to a major DeSantis donor.

Can’t imagine why he’s testy. Not to be outdone, Politico Florida, had their beer held and also ran the wealth data for the zip codes, and one upped the Herald and Sentinel Democrat operatives. The result?

Headline: “DeSantis defends opening vaccine pop-up site in affluent, mostly white community”

Lead: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis traveled Wednesday to an affluent, mostly white community in Manatee County to tout a pop-up vaccination site he said would make it easier for seniors there to get the shot.

(I’ve chosen not to link to the stories because I don’t want to drive traffic to these Democrat operative sites. However, if you want to read the screeds, just Google and headline and site and you will easily find the stories.)

Of course, there are more than 20 sites in Manatee County where people can get vaccines. And nationally, everyone is grappling with low vaccine rates among black Americans, which is in part because of the Tuskegee-driven distrust of vaccines, and a heightened sense of non-existent “systemic racism.”

No matter, it was another opportunity to attack DeSantis. The story has been picked up and run by newspapers across the nation, as the media worked in tandem to drive the story.

Then social media kicked in, and the hashtag #DeathSantis is trending as this is written. Of course, no fact checks or blocking there, just the full tripod of Democrats, media and social media working together to damage a leading Republican.

The irony is that the Florida vaccine rollout is going very well and Florida’s declining numbers continue to outperform the national average and other large states. By a lot. Florida is thriving under DeSantis’ leadership like no blue state. Therefore, DeSantis is a racist. Same old playbook. And not divisive at all.

Harvard Study: An Epidemic of Loneliness Is Spreading Across America

The lockdowns sure haven’t helped.

Loneliness among Americans has been growing in recent years, but the policy response to the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically exacerbated the problem. A new report by Harvard University researchers finds that 36 percent of Americans are experiencing “serious loneliness,” and some groups, such as young adults and mothers with small children, are especially isolated.

Researchers at the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s “Making Caring Common” project analyzed data from an October 2020 online survey of 950 Americans. “Alarming numbers of Americans are lonely,” they conclude in their paper, and those surveyed “reported substantial increases in loneliness since the outbreak of the pandemic.”

Young adults are the loneliest group. According to the research findings, 61 percent of young people ages 18 to 25 reported feeling lonely “frequently” or “almost all the time or all the time” during the four weeks preceding the fall survey. Forty-three percent of these young adults indicated that their loneliness had increased since the pandemic and related lockdowns began. These results echo similar findings of other Harvard researchers who found that nearly half of young adults were showing signs of depression amid the pandemic response. And in August, the CDC reported that one in four young adults in this age range had contemplated suicide during the month of June.

Mothers with small children were another group experiencing high rates of loneliness according to the recent survey analysis, with more than half of mothers reporting serious loneliness. Forty-seven percent of these mothers said that their loneliness increased during the pandemic response.

While everyone has been forcibly cut off from normal social interaction as a result of government lockdown measures, social distancing mandates, and other public health orders, young people and mothers with small children may be particularly harmed by these policies. In many cases, older teenagers and young adults have been unable to meaningfully connect with their peers during school closures and remote learning plans. Additionally, social distancing requirements on many college campuses have halted normal social interaction and can contribute to loneliness and depression among this cohort. As a fall semester article in BU Today, a publication of Boston University, explained: “BU’s aggressive coronavirus safety protocols—no large groups, fewer in-person classes and meetings, and restrictions on the amount of people allowed in an elevator, laundry room, and even around a dining hall table—can equal loneliness.”

For mothers with small children, being disconnected from other mothers, as well as lacking in-person support from family members and friends, can take its toll and make days with little ones seem even longer and more intense. Additionally, as the Harvard researchers found, periodic daycare and school closures have made the last year particularly challenging for mothers.

In their paper, the researchers cite developmental psychologist, Niobe Way, who says: “We are in danger of alleviating one public health problem—the transmission of disease—while exacerbating another.” Indeed, economists have been pointing out these tradeoffs of the pandemic response since last spring. As FEE’s Antony Davies and James Harrigan wrote in April: “Regardless of whether we acknowledge them, tradeoffs exist. And acknowledging tradeoffs is an important part of constructing sound policy.”

Loneliness in America has been a mounting concern for decades. In his groundbreaking 2000 book, Bowling Alone, Robert Putnam documented the growing alienation of Americans, as previously robust aspects of civil society that fostered connection, such as bowling leagues, faded away.

More recent research showed that loneliness was worsening prior to the pandemic. In 2018, a joint Kaiser Family Foundation and Economist survey found that one in five Americans “often” or “almost always” felt lonely or socially isolated, and results from a large-scale Cigna report released in January 2020 found that three out of five Americans reported being lonely.

Lockdowns and related pandemic response measures amplified feelings of loneliness and isolation, as local businesses and organizations were shut down or forced to reduce capacity and change operating procedures. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops—even playgrounds—have been closed in many areas, limiting opportunities for social connection. Several states continue to restrict the number of people allowed in one’s own home, including Vermont where residents have been prohibited from interacting with anyone outside of their immediate household since November.

Not surprisingly, loneliness has deepened as a result of these lockdowns and restrictions that sever individuals from their communities, and mental health continues to deteriorate. Youth suicide and depression rates are increasing, and drug overdose deaths are climbing. The tradeoffs of these strict pandemic response policies are becoming increasingly clear.

The most obvious solution to the accelerating loneliness epidemic during the pandemic response is to lift the lockdowns and related public health policies that keep people cruelly separated from one another.

In their new paper, the Harvard researchers acknowledge the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on increasing rates of loneliness but continue to endorse the current policy response, including indicating that we “may need to enter another lockdown phase as new variants spread.” They argue for sweeping efforts to combat the loneliness epidemic both during and after the pandemic response.

While the Harvard researchers acknowledge that individuals can take some action to ameliorate loneliness by identifying and reversing their own negative feedback loops, they focus most of their attention on a “collective” response to loneliness in America.

Specifically, they criticize what they call “this age of hyper-individualism,” saying that we must “restore our commitment to each other and the common good.” To achieve this, the researchers recommend “national, state, and local public education campaigns” that highlight the loneliness epidemic. They recommend that schools, colleges, and workplaces provide more resources to combat loneliness, and they urge a much larger role of government in this process. “The federal government should greatly expand its commitment to national service for young people, and state and local governments can do much more to promote many forms of organized service that bring people together to work on common problems,” the researchers state.

More pressingly, the study authors explain that we must shift from “Americans’ focus on the self” toward “the common good.” The undermining of the individual in favor of the collective, or “common good,” typically means empowering government with more authority to try to fix social problems. As the Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman said: “I think a major reason why intellectuals tend to move towards collectivism is that the collectivist answer is a simple one. If there’s something wrong, pass a law and do something about it… On the other hand, the individualistic or libertarian argument is a sophisticated and subtle one. If there’s something wrong with society, if there’s a real social evil, maybe you will make better progress by letting people voluntarily try to eliminate the evil.”

Still, the Harvard researchers are right to point out that the loneliness epidemic is a result of disconnection from community. Encouraging this community connection is a goal that can be best achieved through a robust civil society, or the non-governmental, voluntary institutions of our lives—such as extended family, church, clubs, sports leagues, and benefit societies—that have been tragically eroded at the same time that government has grown and taken on roles that were previously reserved for families and communities. An expanded role of government in trying to combat the loneliness epidemic, or any other social problem, will only make matters worse.

In his 1835 book, Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville reflected on the vitality of American civil society. He wrote:

“Americans of all ages, all conditions, all minds constantly unite. Not only do they have commercial and industrial associations in which all take part, but they also have a thousand other kinds: religious, moral, grave, futile, very general and very particular, immense and very small; Americans use associations to give fêtes, to found seminaries, to build inns, to raise churches, to distribute books, to send missionaries to the antipodes…”

Tocqueville warned that as these voluntary institutions and associations become usurped by government power, individuals slowly lose their free will. He wrote: “Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”

The steady rise of government influence in areas that were previously the domain of civil society has been documented most recently by Howard Husock in his book, Who Killed Civil Society? The Rise of Big Government and Decline of Bourgeois Norms. Husock explains how non-governmental organizations and community nonprofits increasingly rely on government funding that can dilute their local impact. He writes: “Thousands of organizations, which were once independent of the government and funded by their communities, are instead government contractors now. Today, the U.S. government enters into some 350,000 contracts with 56,000 nonprofit organizations. In doing so, our federal government has changed not only the source of funding — it has changed the character of civil society and its ability to serve local communities best.”

The loneliness that many Americans currently feel is heartbreaking. Big government’s ascent prior to the pandemic, and the role of government in responding to the pandemic with coercive measures, have contributed to and exacerbated the loneliness epidemic. Relying less on government and more on the voluntary fabric of civil society can make us all happier, healthier, and more connected to each other and to our communities.

Media Informs Ted Cruz You Can Only Travel During A Crisis If You’re A Democrat

CANCUN—Ted Cruz is really ignorant of how to be a politician. The guy traveled during a crisis in his state, and he isn’t even a Democrat.

What an idiot!

The media informed Cruz of his faux pas as soon as he landed in the Yucatán Peninsula, shouting at him that he’s not allowed to travel during a crisis, since he has an “R” next to his name.

“You can only get away with traveling during a crisis if you specifically tell people to stay home and then don’t stay home yourself!” screamed a CNN journalist on the scene as Cruz landed. “Oh, and of course, you have to be a liberal!”

A Univision reporter shouted, “Ay, Caramba!” which is reportedly a Spanish phrase meaning, “Your hypocrisy is unforgivable because you are a Republican, you moron!”

“Well, y’all, I shore am sorry,” Cruz said from his resort in sunny Cancun. “I hadn’t realized I would only get a pass for this if I was a liberal. Boy, howdy, am I in hot stew now, ya hear?”

At publishing time, Cruz had flown back to Texas and promised to do better, or at least to switch parties before he traveled during a crisis next time.

VIDEO: Watch Florida Governor DeSantis Roll Out ‘Election Integrity Measures’

2020 showcased just how incompetent election officials can be and just how much of a failure some states are when it comes to administering an election.

Florida had a great election in 2020, but even in our Great State there are actions we can take to make our elections more secure and restore confidence in our elections for our citizens.

So in response – as many states do nothing (looking at you Georgia) to address their flaws and failed processes – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is stepping up to lead and he is being proactive by announcing common sense election integrity measures that will strengthen elections in Florida.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Rolls out Election Integrity Agenda: Targets Ballot Drop Boxes, Ballot Harvesting

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) announced several reforms Friday designed to ensure election integrity.

Appearing in West Palm Beach, DeSantis backed legislation that would:

  • Address ballot drop boxes
  • Address ballot harvesting
  • Ban “mass mailing of vote-by-mail ballots”
  • Require requests for vote-by-mail ballots to be made each election year
  • Require a signature on a ballot to match “the most recent signature on file.”

The legislation would also promote transparency in the counting process, allowing political parties and candidates to observe the signature matching process.

Counties would no long be able to receive grants from private third-party organizations for “get out the vote” initiatives.

Breitbart News extensively covered donations by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to the Center for Technology and Civic Life, an organization that spent hundreds of millions of dollars on increasing turnout in heavily Democrat areas.

“We have led on this issue from the very beginning,” DeSantis said Friday. “The results speak for themselves, but we also can’t rest on our laurels.”
DeSantis said the intent is to ensure “citizens have confidence in the elections.”

“We want everyone to vote, we don’t want anyone to cheat,” he said, adding he wants to “strike the appropriate balance.”

DeSantis noted paying for ballot harvesting is already illegal in the state, but he said it does not currently address those who “volunteer” to round up ballots.

“My view is: We should have no ballot harvesting,” he said, promoting cheers from attendees at the West Palm Beach hotel.

DeSantis also intends to require “real-time reporting of voter turnout data at the precinct level,” and allow citizens to see “how many ballots have been requested, how many have been received, and how many are left to be counted.”

My Conversation with Rush Limbaugh

When I came to the U.S. in the early 80’s, I didn’t know the language. It was a tough time for me—as a professional speaker, I was unable to construct a simple sentence. English is a very subtle and complicated language. Besides a new culture that was strange to me and a different political system, the inability to communicate was a terrifying state of existence for me. I was desperate to assimilate and my failure to communicate was holding me back. Anxious, I listened to the radio all day and night, even sleeping with the radio to learn the language.

Somewhere toward the end of the 80’s, I found a station where a pleasant voice described the uniqueness of the American republic. I liked this voice, its fluency and his idea, a new idea for me—the uniqueness of the American republic. I learned the name of the man—Rush and was ready to listen to him the next day. Alas, I had lost the station.  I was very disappointed, but continued looking for Rush. Finally, in 1988 Rush came to New York, where I lived at the time and ever since Rush has become part of my every-day life. Moreover, I called Rush and had a conversation with him, pp. 571-574, Baltic Winds Testimony of a Soviet Attorney, XLIBRIS, 2002.

During my first years in America, I was in love with radio and TV, charmed by their professionalism, substance, and quick response to any occasion, let alone perfect English. I’d been especially overwhelmed by the investigative reports—they reminded me of reports from the department of investigation in the KGB.  The Soviet press had never had access to any classified information.  American democracy provided the media with incredible power.  And what excellent writing skills the journalists possessed!  I envied them.

But something had changed along the way.  Instead of reporting the facts, the media were looking primarily for sensation, to stir up human feelings, to excite or scare, to make more money—covering inconsequential episodes and overlooking significant events.  So I asked myself how a reporter or commentator could arrive at an accurate judgment without the truth.  It appeared the media had been deceived the same way that the American people had and, not knowing the truth, had to attract the public with sensations.  In doing so, our media had become a twin brother to the former Soviet media—empty in substance.  It had always irritated me when listening to a reporter called Zhirinovsky, a hard-liner nationalist. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to call him a Stalinist? At least the word would bring a sense of reality and a warning…. What could be worse than the deceived media in democracy!

The one person who stood out from the chorus of America’s deceived believers was Rush Limbaugh, a real American patriot. I thought I should talk to him. And I did. It was not an easy matter to get through to his show by phone, but God was with me and finally after twenty or so minutes, I got the opportunity to talk to Rush. I was so nervous to speak to him that I am afraid he did not understand the significance of my information. I was talking about Soviet involvement in the anti-war movements around the world and about Soviet Health Care, which was worth nothing. I also told him that Clinton was a member of the anti-war movement and gave me the impression that he worked with the KGB.

It was 1992; America was campaigning for a new president. My dislike of Clinton had overwhelmed me to such a degree that I could not remain silent. And despite my poor English, I dared to call Rush Limbaugh. He was the only person I could trust—his awareness of Clinton’s danger coincided with mine. So in talking with him I went straight ahead and warned him and his listeners about the Soviet infiltration and other negative features of Soviet Socialism.

Each new fact about Clinton, moreover, pointed to the veracity of my first impression. He had been an activist in the antiwar movement and, once visiting Moscow, lived with a Russian family. My God, he had lived with the family of a KGB member, or maybe even with two of them—a husband and a wife. It was the only possible explanation—for nobody else in the Soviet Union in the ‘70s would have been trusted to accommodate a foreigner but the family of KGB members. Though there was another scenario of Clinton’s staying in Moscow—the Hotel National, my attitude toward him has not changed. Like the Hotel Europeyskay in Leningrad, the Hotel National served as a roof for the KGB to deal with recruiting the foreigners.

I didn’t like Clinton’s pictures of the ‘60s and ‘70s in Moscow either. He reminded me of a member of the Komsomol, that reservoir of human resources for the KGB. The American media, busy with his womanizing activities, never opened the curtain on the possibility that Clinton was affiliated with the KGB. When he, himself, explained his participation in the antiwar movement in Oxford, saying he “only organized teachers,” no one from the media asked who’d given him that assignment. I suspected the KGB had. I had known the KGB’s modus operandi in using human weaknesses while recruiting foreigners—to supply “girls,” obtain compromising pictures, and then blackmail. And that scenario generated in me an aggressive stance against Clinton.

The ‘passport file’ story eventually validated my suspicions—it was well grounded, something beyond intuition. There were two critical aspects in the passport episode; first, the fact that pages from Clinton’s passport were missing; second, the information they contained. The concept of a passport in America differs totally from that in the rest of the world. An especially critical importance was attached to passports issued by all Socialist bloc countries.

Somebody in the State Department had taken the initiative to remove pages from Clinton’s passport. Or had he done it himself? Where had he traveled? And why had he concealed those trips? Taken together, the passport story revealed the typical KGB fingerprint to me—handwriting on the wall.

What pain I went through when an attorney from the Bush Administration actually apologized for seeking information concerning Clinton’s passport file! I could not believe it. People in the administration were not aware of the KGB obsession with obtaining information about others and concealing its own! I was crushed. There was no alternative for me—I had to vote for Bush. Moreover, I couldn’t discuss my thoughts with my Romanian friend and that disturbed me immensely. For me, Clinton’s presidency presented a catastrophic threat to national security of this country. And that terrified me. As an emotional wreck in an agony of suspense, I glued my eyes to the TV, watching the endless excitement and jubilation of the American people, especially women, ready to vote for Clinton. My poor women were fooled and used again! They had no idea of what they were doing to their children, their families, and to our country . . .

What Vlad had warned me about the Soviet Union had come to America—charlatans turned into heroes, decent people accused of crime. There was an atmosphere of Soviet socialist morality all around. I had to expose it!

In the morning I was unable to write my book; the sense of urgency tore me apart, and in the afternoon, when Rush began talking about Clinton’s character, I knew that my time to speak out had arrived. Nothing could stop me.

As I understood the word “character” in English, it has a broad connotation, something equating a human’s individuality, with references from past and present behaviors and therefore a possible intimation of future ones. If the word “personality” primarily referred to an appearance, a “character” in my view reflected substance—thoughts, moral qualities, and ability to see the real world—the core of a human being. If a personality is a private domain, a character is a public one.

A human being without character resembled a house without a roof and windows. In Clinton’s case, the issue of character had identified the absence of that essence in the man. He had no individuality or character and was ready to imitate or wear any appropriate mask if necessary. But how could I convince Limbaugh and his audience?

Talking on national radio scared me. I had to choose my every word. Besides, I would have, at best, three minutes, no more, to put my ideas together. Instead of writing down some thoughts, the force of urgency drove me to the phone. Eagerness and nervousness are not a good combination, but I had no time to think. My hand, trembling, dialed the number. Busy signals followed for thirty or forty minutes and I redialed over and over again. My throat was dry, and my hands trembled, but I redialed unyieldingly. I had a goal.

Suddenly the busy signals stopped and a polite male voice performed an inquisition, screening and tormenting me with dozens of questions. I had to prove my point. I did. He was a smart man, and I passed the test. I don’t remember Rush’s words as he presented me. Nervously I began talking about the ‘sixties and ‘seventies:

“The Soviet Union fully participated in the Vietnam War. It helped the North Vietnamese with weaponry, grains, and the Soviet pilots fought air battles against the Americans. As a party to that war, the Soviets were interested in winning, and, for that reason, the KGB infiltrated the antiwar movement around the world and later led it. It’s not a secret anymore. The Russian newspapers today are filled with new revelations about the real Soviet participation in the Vietnam War. The point is that the KGB orchestrated many activities within the antiwar movement, and people from the movement worked with the KGB.” Rush stopped me, asking something, I don’t remember what. Full of desire to make my point, I disregarded his words and continued.

“Character is very important. When Clinton came to Moscow he was already a member of the peace movement.” I wanted to

say that he already knew whom he was dealing with. By his own admission, he “organized teachers in Oxford,” carrying out somebody’s assignment. I wanted to show his duplicity and arrogance, his affiliation with the KGB prior to the Moscow visit, but I couldn’t say it so bluntly. Though extremely anxious and nervous, I nevertheless, restrained myself from screaming: The Soviet mafia is coming to America! Nobody would comprehend what the term meant. Besides, the American public had not the remotest idea of who Primakov or Zhirinovsky was. There was only one way to expose the Soviet connection—I had to stay in the parameters of the familiar three letters—KGB.

“The point is that the KGB orchestrated all the activities and the antiwar movement was headed by the KGB,” I said.

“Did you know Clinton personally?” Rush asked me.

“No. But all Soviet people knew about the KGB and its involvement in the antiwar movement worldwide.” I knew I hadn’t presented my case well. I was nervous and afraid that a commercial break would interrupt me. And it did. Rush asked me to hold on. My head was spinning, thoughts running wildly through my mind. How could I prove my point? How could I squeeze so much into such a short span of time?

After the break Rush again asked me about the connection between character and the issue. There was no time to talk about the defining battles still going on around the world between capitalism and socialism. And there were no written words in front of me. The only thing I could hear was the clock ticking.

“I’m not an economist, but I’ve studied Marxism a great deal. Economy is not only about unemployment figures. Economy is a concept with two ideologically possible approaches—it’s a market economy, which is called capitalism, or a government-controlled economy. I can tell you, when I listen to Clinton—what he’s talking about and what he’s promising the United States—I have come to the conclusion that he very deeply inhaled utopian Soviet socialism.” I couldn’t talk over the national radio about Stalinism and its tactics. Again, I was losing sight of how to make my point because I couldn’t openly say what I had in mind. I was frustrated at my inability to cope with the situation and formulate the answers. That frustration and a choking back of tears changed the tone of my voice.

“He’s promising, and he’s lying. He’s promising national health care—I know what this means, I ran from this health care. He’s talking about an economy controlled by the government. The consequences of this approach you now see in the former Soviet Union—its economy is bankrupt. That’s why I would say that, while Mr. Clinton maybe didn’t understand what he was doing in the ‘sixties and ‘seventies, today, twenty years later, he’s proved that he has shared his point of view with the Soviet apparatchiks. He’s acting as a regular Soviet apparatchik.” I wanted to caution the audience regarding the Soviet connection. But in addition to the obscurity of the subject, I lacked the necessary words and didn’t know which ones to use to alarm, to warn, or to alert. Unable to cope with the language, I lost control and almost crying, shouted in anguish.

“He’s promising, and he’s lying. It’s all too familiar to me, and that’s why I want to alert the American people—think before you vote, think before you vote . . .” I don’t remember anything but a devastating feeling of defeat when the conversation ended. October 29, 1992. Rush repeated the conversation October 30th, 1992…

Rush Limbaugh past away February 17. 2021.

God blessed us all with Rush Limbaugh! His teachings will serve generations carrying on his legacy. Rest in peace Rush!

Dick’s Sporting Goods’ New CEO Needs To Protect 2nd Amendment Rights

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Edward Stack is stepping down from his 37-year stint as CEO of the family-run company this February. He’s being replaced by Lauren Hobart, formerly President of the company, but now promoted to President and CEO.

Some have noted that Hobart is the first person outside of the Stack family to hold the position of CEO. This may place her in a unique position to undo some of the anti-American policies which Stack implemented. With a rating of 2.67 in our 2ndVote scoring system, Dick’s Sporting Goods doesn’t quite measure up to 2ndVote neutrality standards, mainly due to the company’s restrictive gun control policies. After a Florida high school shooting, Stack decided to curb gun sales throughout his chain. He banned assault weapons, removed hunting merchandise, and raised the minimum gun purchase age to 21, ignoring the evidence that gun control doesn’t stop criminals. As a result, Dick’s Sporting Goods faced backlash and a substantial drop in sales.

Stack may not be the CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods anymore, but he will remain with the company as Executive Chairman and Chief Merchant. He hopes to be a trusted advisor to Hobart and presumably to influence her policy-making decisions. But 2ndVote Americans need to remind Hobart of her duty to consumers. Dick’s Sporting Goods exists to serve the needs of their customers, and a large portion of their customer base consists of 2nd Amendment supporting citizens.

Let your voice be heard. Tell Lauren Hobart that she has the chance to make things right by correcting these restrictive policies. Let her know that you will fully support Dick’s if they decide to go in a new direction and allow citizens to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights instead of caving in to Stack’s pressure for gun control. Make your 2ndVote count by reminding Dick’s Sporting Goods of their duty to American citizens.

Russian Foreign Ministry Calls Out Biden Administration For Persecution And Violating Human Rights Of Trump Supporters

When Russia has the moral high ground and exposes human rights violations, you know this is not America anymore. Especially since this is very true.  This is a nation under siege.

Russian Foreign Ministry Calls Out Biden Administration For Persecution And Violating Human Rights Of Trump Supporters

By Tsarizm Staff, February 18, 20211:

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokewowman Maria Zakharova recently railed against Biden administration hypocrisy of criticizing the Russian Federation’s handling of Kremlin antagonist Alexei Navalny, while persecuting and violating the human rights of Trump supporters.

Zakharova described an “ongoing persecution campaign” taking place “against anybody at all who does not agree with the results of the latest presidential election.” She also mentioned Biden minions calling American patriots ‘domestic terrorists’.

“The FBI has reportedly opened more than 400 criminal cases and applied for more than 500 search warrants and subpoenas for suspects; it has also brought charges against and detained around 200 people. Only several dozen defendants have been released on bail or placed under house arrest. The others are being subjected to harsh pressure, with members of their family and social circle being coerced into giving a ‘convenient’ testimony. Moreover, people who have not even been officially charged are losing their jobs; they are being banned from social media and publicly ostracised.”

“In fact, the majority of those people were ordinary citizens concerned about the situation in their own country,” she said. “These were 74 million voters who voted for their president and defendedtheir views.”

Zakharova then described how Trump supporters will not disappear as the U.S. Left fervently wishes.

“Their protest will not just go away. You cannot just sweep discontent under the rug. Even the rhetoric that the United States allows itself to use with respect to Russia will not help distract public attention from the country’s own problems. They will have to be dealt with. US citizens deserve to be treated according to the law and in line with Washington’s international obligations.”Accordingly, she then called on the United States to respect the “basic human rights” of Trump supporters.

“In this context, we have every reason to express concern and demand that basic human rights be observed,” she added. “US officials are constantly and hypocritically taking care of these rights when it comes to other countries; and yet, they have no scruples in ignoring them at home.”

The full statement is below…

Persecution of participants in January mass protests in the United States

We are deeply concerned about the ongoing persecution campaign against participants in the so-called storming of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and against anybody at all who does not agree with the results of the latest presidential election. US officials and an obedient media have labelled them “domestic terrorists.” By the way, did the ambassadors of EU countries or EU representatives in the US react in any way? Did they express concern about Washington’s rhetoric regarding its own citizens? No? Too bad.

The FBI has reportedly opened more than 400 criminal cases and applied for more than 500 search warrants and subpoenas for suspects; it has also brought charges against and detained around 200 people. Only several dozen defendants have been released on bail or placed under house arrest. The others are being subjected to harsh pressure, with members of their family and social circle being coerced into giving a “convenient” testimony. Moreover, people who have not even been officially charged are losing their jobs; they are being banned from social media and publicly ostracised.

Among other things, there is a question about the objectivity of the law enforcement agencies because they are essentially acting under orders and in line with the narrative of the current administration who declared the events of January 6, 2021 a riot and everybody who was near the US Congress on that day all but plunderers. Whereas in fact, the majority of those people were ordinary citizens concerned about the situation in their own country. These were 74 million voters who voted for their president and defended their views. I am using the same words that Washington has used with respect to our country.

Their protest will not just go away. You cannot just sweep discontent under the rug. Even the rhetoric that the United States allows itself to use with respect to Russia will not help distract public attention from the country’s own problems. They will have to be dealt with. US citizens deserve to be treated according to the law and in line with Washington’s international obligations. In this context, we have every reason to express concern and demand that basic human rights be observed. US officials are constantly and hypocritically taking care of these rights when it comes to other countries; and yet, they have no scruples in ignoring them at home. Why don’t you deal with your own problems? There are plenty of them and they need to be solved.

Degenerate Democrats Introduce Bill to BAN TRUMP From Being Buried in Arlington National Cemetery

Disappearing the people’s President in the brutal fashion of Stalin, Mao, Hitler.

Pure evil.

Democrats Introduce Bill to Ban Trump From Being Buried in Arlington National Cemetery

By: Caleb Parke, Feb 18, 2021

A new bill in Congress shows just how far Democrats are willing to go with their hatred for former President Trump.

The “No Glory For Hate Act,” introduced by California Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez, would ban the federal government from commemorating Trump in any way.

H.R. 484 states “twice impeached” presidents will be banned from being buried at Arlington National Cemetery and prohibit federal funds from being used to display their names or acknowledge their achievements.

It would prevent federal projects, buildings, statues, or lands from being named after Trump, including park benches.

“For years, Donald Trump poured gasoline on lies, encouraging racism and hatred, then lit the match on January 6th. A president who has been impeached twice does not deserve the honors bestowed on a former president,” Sanchez said in a statement.

“We should never glorify the hatred Donald Trump personified as President,” she added. “This bill ensures that there is no glory for hate, not a building, statue, or even a park bench.”

At least 13 Democratic representatives have co-signed onto the anti-Trump bill.

Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes slammed Democrats for promising unity but stabbing the former president in the back.

“This is bonkers, but this shows you the level of hate and vitriol that the Democrats have for this president,” Starnes said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show Thursday.

“They just can’t quit him,” he added. “Unbelievable.”
