Taking Stock of Election Integrity Efforts

Believe what you like about the 2020 presidential election, but there’s no denying the widespread belief – even among Democrats – the election was stolen motivated a lot of people to work to tighten up future elections.  The way I hear the story, donors poured $30 million dollars into election integrity efforts on the professional Right.  You can add to that hundreds of citizen’s groups and thousands of individuals in the grassroots all working to secure elections like never before.  So what do they have to show for all that treasure and effort?

A lot, actually.  There were fewer reports of late night ballot drops and Republican poll watchers being blocked this time around.  A Republican lawsuit forced Nevada and Arizona to offer poll-worker data to ensure both parties are equally represented at voting sites.  Another Republican challenge struck down a New York law that would have added 900,000 noncitizens to the voter rolls.  There was yet another court ruling upholding voter ID, something most Americans support.  High voter turnout in Georgia put the nail in the coffin of the Democrat’s phony narrative new election integrity laws passed by Republicans in several states are voter suppression.  Jim Crow 2.0?  Hardly.  It was all Democrat hogwash.  Oh, and what happened to all that Republican violence and all those disruptive Republican election workers we were supposed to see on Election Day?  It didn’t happen.  It was just hogwash.  You can put it right next to all the other Democrat hogwash.  Now, left-wing organizations have to explain to their base why it didn’t happen and they’re saying it was because elections officials were ready for trouble.  Sure, and I’m the tooth fairy.

So there were some wins, but we still have miles to go before we can express confidence in our elections again.  A number of suspicious things happened in the midterms.  Ballots arrived after the legal deadline with no adequate explanation at the Detroit bureau of elections, reminiscent of the 2020 election.  A Democrat candidate got 1,100 votes in a town in New Hampshire that only has 700 people – how does that happen?

Turning to another subject, there is now something of a split among conservatives as to how to deal with the changes Democrats have brought to the election process in the last couple of years – what should we do going forward?

One school of thought holds the Democrats are winning elections because they have succeeded in gaming the system.  People on this side of the debate point to Democrat victories in states that sent out over a million absentee ballots or states with permanent absentee ballot lists – ask for an absentee ballot once and you keep getting them in future elections.  Having this many ballots floating around facilitates fraud and produced Democrat wins in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, and Arizona.  Republicans did better in Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, and Georgia where absentee voting rules are stricter.  Swing states with same-day registration like Michigan and Wisconsin went blue in this election.  Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia don’t have same-day registration and went red.  This school of thought believes all went according to Democrat plan and that Republicans should work to reverse things like mail-in voting and drop boxes.

But a new school of thought holds Republicans should accept all these things are here to stay and should learn to adapt to the new environment.  Republicans should become aggressive in ballot curing, ballot harvesting where legal, and encouraging mail-in voting to avoid Election Day glitches.  Adherents to this school of thought attribute the Republicans flipping the U.S. House to aggressive Republican ballot curing and harvesting in California. Republican candidates in Arizona urged voters to make sure their ballots were counted and to cure them if they were not.

Call me old school, but I’m not convinced.  I get suspicious whenever anyone tells me I should do what the Democrats want me to do.  Look at Michigan – voters just approved a ballot initiative from the Democrat side that will loosen voter ID, institutionalize early voting, mandate the use of drop boxes, create a permanent absentee ballot list, narrow the ability of citizens to challenge elections, and allow private money to be used for election administration.  As for the latter, it’s pretty clear the true purpose of private money is to allow Democrat election officials to engage in voter registration drives to sign up more Democrats to vote.  The consequence of all these changes the Democrats wanted will be less secure elections in Michigan in the future.

That’s the Democrat plan and I, for one, am not going to go along with it.  I will continue my work with other activists in my state to fight all the changes the Democrats have made to our elections process.  The Democrats will not quit.  They will continue to try to subvert our elections.  We must continue to oppose them and keep working to right the ship.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, ‘People just need to chill out!’

There is an ongoing effort by the legacy and social media to portray President Donald J. Trump as evil even demonic. There are ongoing efforts by Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to criminalize President Donald J. Trump.

Watch as Jim Jordan states that an FBI Agent whistleblower said ‘The Highest Levels of FBI’ are ‘Rotten to the Core:

But what goes around comes around. Watch as the Republican led House Oversight Committee Announces New Probes Into Joe, Hunter Biden:

Whenever you, our readers, see these biased and negative stories understand it is an effort to keep President Trump off of the ballot at all costs.

QUESTION: Why?

ANSWER: Because the globalists know he is the greatest threat to their power grab.

Remember when President Trump stood up against the globalists?

These same media outlets are also trying to drive a wedge between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and President Trump. The Top Gov is have none of it. A reporter tries to drive a wedge and gets a wedgey.

Watch as Governor DeSantis says ‘chill out’ after a reporter asks if there’s ‘civil war’ in GOP over him and President Trump.

Govern DeSantis as assured the people of Florida that his sole focus is on the Sunshine State, not on the White House in 2024!

We have written that Governor DeSantis will remain the leader of Florida and insure that the sunshine state votes overwhelmingly for President Donald J. Trump in 2024.

We have also predicted that Governor Ron DeSantis will be the President of the United States in 2028 and that he will be reelected in 2032.

President Donald J. Trump is focused on reversing everything that Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and the Democrats have done to destroy America since January 2021.

Watch what Donald J. Trump posted on Twitter on January 7th, 2021 just before his account was deleted:

As Nick Adams pointed out this is déjà vu all over again. MAGA is the second America Revolution to restore our republic.

It will take four years for President Trump to drain the swamp.

This will then lead to Governor Ron DeSantis leaving Florida and moving into the White House after winning the presidency in 2028.

Get it? Got it? Good!

UPDATE: Arizona GOP Gubernatorial Favorite Kari Lake REFUSES TO CONCEDE, Hires Lawyers to Contest Result

UPDATE: BREAKING: The Elections Integrity Unit of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office has officially demanded a response from Maricopa County “pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County.”


The Epoch Times is reporting:

Arizona Republican candidate Kari Lake said on Nov. 17 that she’s still fighting in the state governor’s race, in her first major update since Democrat Katie Hobbs declared victory.

“I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I am still in this fight with you,” Lake, a former television anchor, said in a video statement.

Lake said concerns raised by her campaign about Hobbs, the Arizona secretary of state, overseeing the election and electronic voting equipment turned out to be legitimate. As an example, she pointed to how tabulators across Maricopa County weren’t working properly on Election Day.

Lake said that she spoke with voters who had to wait in line for hours, including a man who went to three different polling sites before he was able to finally cast his ballot.

“Our election officials failed us miserably. What happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable. Tens of thousands of Maricopa County voters were disenfranchised,” Lake said. As secretary of state, Hobbs is the state’s top election official.

“Now I’m busy here collecting evidence and data. Rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team. And we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week. I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs. My resolve to fight for you is higher than ever.”

Hobbs declared victory on Nov. 14, after outlets including The Associated Press called the race for her.

The only statement Lake issued was a terse, one-liner on Twitter that said, “Arizonans know [expletive] when they see it.”

Since then, updated vote counts have seen Lake cut into the lead Hobbs still holds.

The current margin between the two candidates is 0.6 percent. If it ultimately ends up at 0.5 percent or less, an automatic recount will trigger. Thousands of votes still need to be counted, including more than 16,800 in Maricopa County.

Hobbs’s campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment regarding Lake’s new video.

“I am honored to stand before you as Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs,” she said at what her campaign called a victory rally on Nov. 15.

Lake and Hobbs are vying to succeed Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican who has been in office for two terms. State law prohibited him from running for reelection.

Former Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, “These Arizona voter stories are brutal.”

This is the very definition of voter suppression.

Here Are Democrats Who Got FTX Millions

Over 92% of the 44 million dollars FTX went to Democrats, the few Republican recipients were Never Tumpers – Democrats in GOP clothing.

Bankman-Fried and another FTX executive gave the vast majority of donations received by a group that gave exclusively to Democrats

By Thomas Catenacci, FOX Business, November 2022:

Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, was a major contributor to Democratic candidates during the midterm election cycle, funneling most of his donations through a little-known political action committee (PAC).

Overall, in 2021 and 2022, Bankman-Fried donated approximately $38 million to various candidates and PACs, mainly giving his cash to Democratic candidates and left-wing groups, according to Federal Election Commission filings (FEC). The majority of his political givings, though, went to the Protect Our Future PAC, a group founded in January that is dedicated to boosting candidates committed to preventing future pandemics.

“Our country’s leaders failed to prepare for a pandemic experts warned for years was possible, and the result was more than a million preventable American deaths, trillions of dollars in economic damage, school closures, loss of freedoms, and untold suffering,” the PAC states on its website

“Our candidates are committed to safeguarding our nation from future global pandemics, so this is the last time in our lifetime, and our children’s lifetimes, that we will face the devastation that has gripped communities across the U.S. since 2020,” it continued.

[ … ]

Bankman-Fried’s contributions accounted for roughly 95% of the roughly $28.5 million raised by the PAC. The only other major contributor to the PAC was Nishad Singh — Bankman-Fried’s business partner and top FTX executive — who gave $1 million to the group the same day Bankman-Fried wired his initial contribution in February.

While Protect Our Future PAC appears to be a bipartisan group based on its website, it exclusively supported Democratic campaigns in the run-up to the election.

The group supported Carrick Flynn, who ran to represent Oregon’s 6th Congressional District, far more than any other candidate, giving about $10.5 million to his campaign. However, Flynn was defeated by fellow Democrat Andrea Salinas in the state’s May primary. Salinas beat her Republican challenger last week.

The PAC also gave $1.1 million to Adam Hollier of Michigan and Josh Lafazan of New York, two other Democratic candidates that failed to make it out of their respective primaries.

In addition, Protect Our Future PAC pushed more than $1 million to Reps. Lucy McBath of Georgia and Shontel Brown of Ohio as well as Reps.-elect Jasmine Crockett of Texas, Valerie Foushee of North Carolina and Robert Garcia of California.

Other recipients of the PAC’s donations included Rep. Jesus Garcia, D-Ill., and Reps.-elect Morgan McGarvey of Kentucky, Maxwell Frost of Florida, Sydney Kamlager of California, Jonathan Jackson of Illinois, Nikki Budzinski of Illinois, Jared Moskowitz of Florida, Rob Menendez Jr. of New Jersey. The candidates received between $200,000 and $972,000 from the PAC.

CNN Producer Salutes Hitler In A Hashtag, Praises Hamas ‘Freedom Fighters’

CNN, which apparently is unable or unwilling to check the social media posts of those it is considering hiring, just to make sure there is nothing scandalous in that potential hire’s background, has tripped over itself again. The story of the latest unfit-for-purpose producer is here:

CNN Producer Tweeted ‘#TeamHitler,’ Called Hamas Terrorists ‘Freedom Fighters

by Akiva Van Koningsveld, Algemeiner, November 16, 2022:

Idris Muktar Ibrahim, a California-educated native of Kenya, has done work for CNN since 2015, reporting on critical events in Africa, including then-President Barack Obama’s visit to the region and the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.

Earlier this year, following his graduation from UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, CNN’s international desk took him on as a producer.

In our cultural of credentialism, Idris Muktar Ibrahim knew he had to get some kind of degree in order to raise himself from his role as a lowly freelance reporter filing stories from Africa, to that appetizing thing, an on-staff reporter and producer. He dutifully enrolled at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, and emerged from his academic chrysalis a veritable butterfly, immediately hired by CNN’s international desk as a producer. That was where CNN failed in its duty of due diligence: before hiring him for a job as producer, it failed to look into his social media posts to see if there was anything worrisome, anything that might suggest, for example, a deep hostility to Jews and to Israel.

Ibrahim’s name has appeared in multiple bylines on CNN.com, including a November 13 article about Israel’s incoming governing coalition, titled “Israeli President invites Netanyahu to form government.”

Yet Ibrahim’s profound hatred of the Jewish state calls into question his ability to impartially report on the Arab-Israeli conflict.

For instance, in a July 13, 2014, Twitter post (screenshot), he seemingly expressed support for Nazi mass murderer Adolf Hitler. “I have shifted to team Germany after finding out that Messi supports Israel,” Ibrahim wrote, concluding the tweet with the offensive hashtag “#TeamHitler.”

So the year before he began working as a freelancer for CNN, he was already on record, at Twitter, as having declared he would no longer support the soccer team for which Lionel Messi played, because Ibrahim found out that “Messi supports Israel.” (It’s amusing to realize that Palestinian propagandists photoshopped a picture of Messi holding a Palestinian flag — it never happened.) Ibrahim felt such animus to the Jewish state that he transferred his soccer allegiance from FC Barcelona, which Messi played for from 2014 to 2017, to Germany’s national soccer team. And just to make clear what he thought of Jews, he ended that tweet with the hashtag #team Hitler.That came at the end of an anti-Israel post, so there could be no misunderstanding its sinister meaning.

 Ibrahim also lavished praise on Hamas (screenshot), claiming that members of the US-designated terror organization are “modern day freedpm fighters [sic]” who are “definding [sic] their land.” According to the CNN producer, Hamas is entitled to its “armed struggle” against Israeli civilian targets.

Notably, just hours after Ibrahim posted his tweet on July 18, 2014, a Hamas rocket struck a kindergarten in the southern Israeli town of Gan Yavneh.

Idris Mukhtar Ibrahim describes Hamas members as “modern-day freedom fighters.” The “freedom” that Hamas is fighting for is set out clearly in the organization’s charter: it has but one goal — destruction of the state of Israel and its replacement, from the river to the sea, by a Palestinian Arab state. Hamas’ freedom fighters have conducted thousands of attacks, almost all of them directed at civilians. In the latest war, in May 2021, Hamas launched hundreds of rockets into civilian cities and villages in southern Israel, hitting schools, shops, synagogues, homes – all of them civilian targets. Hamas terrorists have had a particular fondness for suicide bombings, of buses and at bus stops, cafes, restaurants, stores, open-air markets.

But Hamas doesn’t just cause civilian casualties among Israelis. It also holds its own civilians hostage, by hiding its extensive armory of weapons, especially missiles and rockets, inside or under or next to civilian buildings – schools, hospitals, apartment and office buildings – and launches attacks into Israel from those civilian structures. And this practice is what leads to the deaths of Palestinian civilians. As is well known, the IDF makes great efforts, before launching its own attacks against Hamas’ weapons hideouts, to minimize civilian casualties. It telephones, sends emails, and uses its “knock-on-the-roof” technique, to warn civilians away from targets that are just about to be struck. But there will always be some unavoidable casualties, due entirely to Hamas’ practice of hiding its fighters and its weapons among civilians.

Hamas is recognized as a terror organization by the civilized part of the world – the countries of Europe and North America. Even Arab states, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, have declared it to be a “terrorist” group. But Idris Muktar Ibrahim begs to differ. For him the suicide bombers of Hamas, who blow up busses and restaurants, or lob missiles into kindergartens and hospitals, are “freedom fighters,” worthy of praise.

Idris Muktar Ibrahim is, of course, entitled to his personal views, even if they are ignorant and offensive. But as we previously explained, producers with a political agenda can be selective with the information they present to the public, resulting in lopsided media coverage of the conflict in the Middle East.

Sadly, Ibrahim is but the latest in a series of journalists whose virulently anti-Jewish views have been exposed by HonestReporting. Over the last three months alone, our editorial team uncovered four antisemitic, anti-Israel journalists and successfully convinced reputable outlets to cut ties with them (see here and here).

HonestReporting has contacted CNN for comment. In response, a spokesperson for the network told us they are looking into the matter.

Will CNN do the right thing, and discharge this admirer of Hitler and Hamas? Let us hope.

Education as a Battleground

The following is adapted from remarks delivered on November 3, 2022, at a Hillsdale College reception in Santa Clara, California.


If you want to see the problem with American education, look at a chart illustrating the comparative growth in the number of students, teachers, and district administrators in our public schools in the period between 2000 and 2019. (See the chart here.) The number of district administrators grew by a whopping 87.6 percent during these years, far outstripping the growth in the number of students (7.6 percent) and teachers (8.7 percent).

In illustrating the difference in these rates of growth, the chart also illustrates a fundamental change that has come over our nation as a whole during this period—a change in how we govern ourselves and how we live. To say a change is fundamental means that it concerns the foundation of things. If the foundation changes, then the things built on it are changed. Education is fundamental, and it has changed radically. This has changed everything else.

One way of describing the change in education today is that it provides a different answer than we have ever known to the question: who owns American children? Of course, no one actually owns the children. They are human beings, and insofar as they are owned, they own themselves. But by nature, they require a long time to grow up—much longer than most creatures—and someone must act on their behalf until they mature. Who is to do that?

Not many people raise this question explicitly, but implicitly it is everywhere. For example, it is contained in the question: who gets to decide what children learn? It is contained more catastrophically in the question: who decides what we tell children about sex? 

Are these decisions the province of professional educators, who claim to be experts? Or are they the province of parents, who rely on common sense and love to guide them? In other words, is the title to govern children established by expertise or by nature as exhibited in parenthood? The first is available to a professionally educated few. The second is available to any human being who will take the trouble.

The natural answer to this question is contained in the way human beings come to be. Prior to recent scientific “advances,” every child has been the result of a natural process to which people have a natural attraction. “Natural” here does not mean what every single person wants or does—it means the way things work unless we humans intervene. 

In its essence, “nature” means the process of begetting and growth by which a mature, living thing comes to be. Not quite every human being is attracted to the natural process of human reproduction, but nearly all are—and when the process works to produce a baby, it works that way and no other way. 

This process of human reproduction and growth works for two reasons. The first is that human beings, when mature, are capable of so much more than other creatures. Almost from birth we learn to talk, a rational function that indicates decisive differences from other creatures. Because of reason and speech we are moral beings, capable of distinguishing among kinds of things and therefore of knowing and doing right and wrong. Also because of them we are social beings, able to understand and explain things to one another that other creatures do not understand and cannot discuss. This draws us closer together than even herd or swarm animals. 

We are unique in possessing these capacities, and it is in this specific respect that our nation’s founders declared that “all men are created equal.” This equality has nothing to do with the color of anyone. Its source is the unique, immaterial, rational soul of the human being. One of my teachers used to respond to the claims of animal rights advocates that one must not be cruel to any creature, but that only those who can talk are entitled to vote. 

The second reason in nature that makes human reproduction unique is our especially long period of maturation. For months, human babies are simply helpless; without constant attention they will starve. For years afterwards they must develop the skills and knowledge that are uniquely available to the human being. Both the skills and the knowledge are natural, meaning all human beings can obtain them, but both take time. Each child does the work of obtaining them, but each child needs help. Modern educators often mistake the work of helping them to learn for actually doing the learning for them. The second is impossible.

The skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic are direct exercises of the rational faculty. They are in principle the same thing as talking, and in principle every child will learn much of them unassisted. Just watch a child grow up to the age of two. He or she begins very early to respond to things with comprehension. Words soon follow. Children copy adults for the use of words, but they are doing all the work of learning. Little wonder that human beings take a long time to mature: they have so much to learn. 

Raising a child has always been difficult and expensive. With rare exceptions, it has always been true that the parents who conceive the child raise him the best. And throughout American history, it has been thought that the family is the cradle of good citizenship and therefore of free and just politics. Public education is as old as our nation—but only lately has it adopted the purpose of supplanting the family and controlling parents. 

[ *** ]

The political successes of Governor Ron DeSantis in Florida, Governor Glenn Youngkin in Virginia, and many other politicians in other states have largely been won on this battleground of education. One can look in history or in literature to see the danger of where the idea of supplanting the family might lead. Study the education practices that existed in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany and that exist today in Communist China. Or read the terrifying account in Orwell’s 1984. They tell us that children, by distorting their natural desire to grow up and end their dependence, can be recruited to the purposes of despotic regimes, even to the extent of denouncing their parents to the state.

We do not yet have this in America. But we do have children being turned against their country by being indoctrinated to look on its past—of which all parents, of course, are in some way a part—as a shameful time of irredeemable injustice. We also increasingly have children being encouraged to speak of their sexual proclivities at an age when they can hardly think of them. 

To cite just one example, Christopher Rufo has discovered, on the website of the Michigan Department of Education, detailed instructions for how teachers should open the question with students of their sexual orientation—or maybe I should say sexual direction, since “orientation” implies something constant, whereas children are now being taught that sexuality is “fluid” and can take them anywhere. 

Also on the website are detailed instructions on how to keep this activity from the parents. And as we learned last year, when parents get angry and complain of things like this, the FBI is likely to become interested.

Who “owns” the child, then? The choice is between the parents, who have taken the trouble to have and raise the child—and who, in almost all cases, will give their lives to support the child for as long as it takes and longer—or the educational bureaucracy, which is more likely than a parent to look upon the child as an asset in a social engineering project to rearrange government and society. 

[ *** ]

The revolutionary force behind this social engineering project is a set of ideas installed in just about every university today. Its smiting arm is the administrative state, an element of America’s ruling class. The administrative state has something over 20 million employees, many of them at the federal but most at the state level. Directly and indirectly, they make rules about half the economy, which means they affect all of it. 

Most of the bureaucrats who staff the administrative state have permanent jobs. The idea behind this was that if they do not fear dismissal and have excellent pay and benefits that can’t be reduced, then they will be politically neutral. Today, of course, the public employee unions that represent this administrative state are the largest contributors in politics and give overwhelmingly to one side. They are the very definition of partisanship.

The fiction is that these bureaucrats are highly trained, dispassionate, nonpartisan, and professional, and that therefore they can do a better job, of almost anything, than somebody outside the system can do. They proceed by rules that over time have become ever more hopelessly complex. Only they can read these rules—and, for the most part, they read them as they please. 

Judges have up to now, for the most part, given deference to the bureaucrats’ reading of their own rules. It is a rare happy fact that this judicial practice is under challenge in the courts. If it should ever become settled doctrine that the bureaucracy is constrained by the strict letter of the laws made by elected legislators and enforced by elected executives, that will exercise some restraint upon the administrative state. That explains why, after decades of defending judicial supremacy, progressives are beginning to question the authority of the courts and speak openly about packing the Supreme Court.

[ *** ]

Public education is an important component of the prevailing administrative system. The roots of the system are in Washington, D.C., and the tendrils reach into every town and hamlet that has a public school. These tendrils retain some measure of freedom, especially in red states where legislatures do not go along automatically. In some red states, the growth of administrators has been somewhat slower than average. But this growth has been rapid and large everywhere. In every state, the result has been to remove authority and money away from the schools where the students learn. In every state, the authority and money drained from the schools have flowed toward the bureaucracy. 

The political battle over this issue is fraught with dishonesty. Any criticism of public education is immediately styled as a criticism of teachers. But as the numbers show, the public education system works to the detriment of teachers and for the benefit of bureaucrats. The teachers unions themselves, some of the largest of the public employee unions, claim to be defending teachers and children. That cannot be more than half true, given that they are defending an administrative system that has grown by leaps and bounds while the number of teachers has grown very little.

Worse even than this is the tendency the system sets in all of us. Bureaucracy is a set of processes, a series of prescribed steps not unlike instructions for assembling a toy. First this happens, then that happens, and then the next thing. The processes proceed according to rules. It is a profession unto itself to gain competence in navigating these rules, but nobody is really competent. Today we tend too much to think that this kind of process is the only thing that can give legitimacy to something. A history curriculum is adopted, not because it gives a true account of the unchangeable things that have already happened, but because it has survived a process. The process is dominated by “stakeholders”—mostly people who have a financial or political interest in what is taught. They are mostly not teachers or scholars but advocates. And so we adopt our textbooks, our lesson plans, and our state standardized tests with a view to future political outcomes once the kids grow up. 

I have said and written many times that the political contest between parents and people who make an independent living, on the one hand, and the administrative state and all its mighty forces on the other, is the key political contest of our time. Today that seems truer than ever. The lines are clearly formed.

[ *** ]

As long as our representative institutions work in response to the public will, there is thankfully no need for violence. As the Declaration of Independence says, “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes.”

The Declaration guides us in our peaceful pursuits, too. In naming the causes of the American Revolution, it gives a guide to maintaining free and responsible government. The long middle section of the Declaration accuses the King of interfering with representative government, violating the separation of powers, undermining the independence of the judiciary, and failing to suppress violence. 

And in an apposite phrase, it says of the King: “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”

So it is today. And so it is our duty to defend our American way of life.

Mid-terms and the American ‘Recessional’

The mid-term elections show, once again, that no Republican is going to be elected to high office unless or until the Republicans master ballot harvesting or control enough State legislatures to stop this ongoing crime against representative government.

Pointing fingers and recriminations, no matter how well deserved, serve no useful purpose.

To paraphrase Democrat strategist, James Carville, “It’s the corrupted system, stupid.”

Or, in a twist of a grisly Vietnam War saying, “We have to destroy American democracy in order to save the Deep State.”

Meanwhile, a stanza from Rudyard Kipling’s poem “Recessional” comes to mind:

Far-called, our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire:
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!

Kipling wrote the poem in 1897, toward the end of the festivities celebrating 60 years of the reign of Queen Victoria. The intent of the poem was twofold:

One, to remind the Brits to give credit to the God who allowed the British Empire to achieve great dominion over other lands.

Secondly, to warn that overconfidence could cause the British Empire “to be one with Nineveh and Tyre,” referring to how Nineveh of ancient Mesopotamia and Tyre of ancient Lebanon had lowered their defenses and were defeated.

“Far called, our navies melt away, on dune and headland sinks the fire,” suggests the Royal Navy was already too small and its naval gunfire was sinking harmlessly into the ground.

And, “Lo, all our pomp of yesterday,” might remind us of how well America was doing before Covid hit, back when our economy was booming, when we were energy independent, crime was not so rampant, there was no inflation, and our southern border was on its way to operating as the border of a great nation should.

Is “Recessional” relevant to today?

Yes. We may be on the road to becoming like Nineveh and Tyre. Moreover, our Navy is too small and too “woke” to impress the ChiComs with regard to Taiwan, although, if the U.S. has the will to do so, our silent, deadly submarines deployed in the Strait of Taiwan and what is left of our aging airpower might deter the Chicoms from attempting an amphibious invasion across the 97-mile-wide Strait of Taiwan. Recall, when Hitler could not gain air superiority over the 22 miles of English Channel, even Hitler realized his troop ships could be decimated by the Royal Air Force and Navy.

The Chicoms, like the Russians, know full well our military capabilities. What ChiCom Chairman Xi cannot be sure of is whether the U.S. has the will to win in the Strait of Taiwan or not. While no one should make sport of the mental and physical infirmities that come with old age, Chairman Xi, President Putin, Kim Jong-un, the Mullahs, and others who would do the U.S. harm would have to be totally incompetent not to take into account the mental condition of our current Commander-in-Chief; and, for that matter, the mental ability of his second-in-command. The incompetent conduct of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan must make them smile, even laugh.

Yes, “Judge of the nations spare us yet, lest we forget — lest we forget…”

How to Cheat in the Next Election

It’s amazing how many ways Democrats have come up with to cheat in elections.

Ballot harvesters were caught on video stuffing drop boxes with stacks of ballots in Arizona, where ballot harvesting is illegal.  It’s legal in Pennsylvania where Democrat election officials voted to allow harvesting of a hundred votes at a time in nursing homes.  It may be legal, but I still call it cheating because Democrats have a long history of committing voter fraud in nursing homes where many residents are no longer compos mentis.

One reason ballot harvesting is a bad idea is that it allows cheaters to pay people for their votes.  A Texas man admitted a Democrat nominee paid him $200 for every fraudulent absentee ballot he could deliver in the 2016 election.

A Democrat poll worker in Indiana told voters how to vote and even pressed “straight Democrat” on a machine for one of them.

A group of unidentified men in black threw an independent poll challenger out of the big voting center in Detroit in the August primary for asking why a voting machine was apparently connected to the Internet.  A court subsequently ruled the Secretary of State did not have authority to issue rules to allow poll challengers to be thrown out for asking too many questions.

Elections officials in St. Louis told volunteer poll workers not to enforce the state’s new photo ID law.

So excuse me for not taking Democrat election ‘reforms’ – so-called – at face value.  The only reason Democrats want mail-in voting and refuse to clean the voter rolls is so they can cheat.

Voting by mail is a mess.  Some ballots end up on the ground, others are sent to vacant lots.  The number returned as undeliverable can run into the tens of thousands in any given county.

Because Democrats refuse to clean the voter rolls in many areas, ballots are sent to dead voters, people are sent duplicate ballots, and ballots are mailed to people who have moved away.  Pennsylvania sent 240,000 ballots to voters for the 2022 election without verifying their identity.  Michigan had 26,000 dead voters on the rolls last year.  Minnesota had over 500 duplicates.

Why does it matter?  Because you have to have dirty voter rolls to cheat.  First, you have to grab a bunch of ballots floating around from mail-in voting, for example.  But then you have to match up your fraudulently cast ballots with records of voters still on the rolls who are not going to vote this time, like dead people.  You can’t do that very easily if the voter rolls are cleaned up.

Among other efforts to clean up voter rolls, there is a team working to identify phantom names and incorrect addresses on the rolls in Wisconsin and about 20 other states.  This team is using fractal programming technology which starts with small batches but can be scaled up to millions of records quickly and inexpensively.  The team will eventually be working in all 50 states.

It’s citizen-led efforts like this that will make cheating much harder and restore confidence in our elections, once again.

Kari Lake Calls For Election Do-Over After 70 Voting Machines Failed in Maricopa Count

Arizona elections were conducted like something out of Woody Allen’s banana republic spoof, “Bananas”. But this is real world America and the implications of the Democrat corruption of our elections are catastrophic.

Excerpt:

Article two, section twenty one of the Arizona Constitution states, “All elections shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.” It is a fact that over seventy voting locations in Maricopa County had issues with ballot tabulator machines not being able to read voters ballots.

In addition, there were also reports of printers having configuration issues, and even ink settings being improperly set rendering ballots unreadable. All of these issues, whether purposeful or not violate Article two, Section twenty one’s first sentence which states, “all elections shall be free and equal.” Having over seventy locations, which is roughly thirty percent of all of Maricopa Counties voting centers compromised, not working, or inoperable violates the Arizona Constitution. This election was not “fair or equal” in access to voting rights and these damages were indeed outcome determinative.

What happened on Election Day in Maricopa County was a violation of voters Equal Protection rights, their First Amendment rights, and their voting rights.

Moreover, Maricopa County Election Officials lied to voters when they instructed them to “check out” and “check back in” at another polling location to vote. Nowhere in the Arizona Elections manual does it say this is an option or a solution. In fact, once someone “checks in” whether they voted or not they can’t leave and go to another polling location because it would be considered “double voting” as there is no way to determine if the voter didn’t vote at two different polling locations. For this reason alone, this Election should be annulled and redone.

If this was not bad enough, it has been revealed that the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors Bill Gates, along with the Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer started a Political Action Committee (PAC) on November seventeenth of 2021 called “The Pro Democracy Republicans of Arizona” which was designed specifically to recruit, train, and run candidates that do not question the validity of the previous election in 2020. This is a huge conflict of interest at the least and shows a clear bias against all candidates that hold an opposing view. Imagine that, those tasked with conducting free and fair non biased elections were overseeing the election of candidates whom they publicly disapproved of and active sought to defeat?

So how do we fix this and get a new election?

When it comes to election cases, most judges shy away from them because they don’t want to be seen as meddlesome or subject themselves to being the person who decides elections. This is why they rarely get involved in these types of cases. Typically judges will refuse to take the case or dismissed it on the grounds that those filing the case do not have “legal standing” to do so. Even when there is ample amounts of evidence of malfeasance or fraud, as was the case in many of the lawsuits filed in 2020, most judges just simply refused to even see the evidence. If these campaigns decide to file lawsuits, which they most certainly should do, they need to get past the “standing” objection that President Trump and his legal team in 2020 had difficulty doing. Hopefully these campaigns have learned the lessons of 2020 but if not here is EXACTLY how to do it.

The key to post election litigation must be argued based on violation of laws, violation of rights, and violation of equal protections under those laws. The way to do this is through signed affidavits from at least 30,000 voters in Maricopa County. The amount of signed affidavits (under penalty of perjury) must exceed the unofficial margin of victory in each race contested. Without these affidavits from the voters who had their rights violated, judges will not be able to see the full impact of what occurred on Election Day. These affidavits must be filled out immediately and must be complete with full descriptions of what voters experienced, coupled with screen shots, images, videos, witnesses, etc. Time is of the essence here and we only get one crack at this so we better make it count. If you are a voter in Maricopa County and you experienced difficulty voting, we NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU NOW. Don’t wait or hesitate because it could be too late. Please go to www.saveaznow.com and file your affidavit today!!!

Please note, all affidavits must also be notarized so that are official and will hold up in a court of law.

Kari Lake calls for a do-over election after 70 voting machines failed in Maricopa Count

BY: American Military News, TPG, November 17, 2022:

Republican candidate Kari Lake is calling for a partial do-over in Arizona’s governor election. It’s the most high-profile dispute yet to emerge in a midterm cycle that handed defeats to Lake and other candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

Lake’s race was called in favor of her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs on Monday. Hobbs’ victory was narrow: with 98 percent of votes counted on Thursday, she leads Lake by only 17,200 votes, according to NBC News.

While no formal challenge to the election has been made yet, the Lake campaign has pointed to tabulation machines that malfunctioned on Election Day across Maricopa County – where most of Arizona’s population lives – as evidence that Republican voters were disenfranchised.

“Imagine if the tabulators had worked in primarily red districts!” Lake’s campaign tweeted Wednesday, adding that the election had been “irreparably compromised.” “The appropriate thing to do would be to let Maricopa County cast their votes again.”

The problem stemmed from too-light printer ink and affected 70 of 223 polling places in the county, with no particular bias against Republican-leaning precincts, according to a Washington Post analysis. But the problem took voters’ time and drew suspicion, as they were asked to leave their unreadable ballots so they could be counted elsewhere.

The campaign has continued questioning the election results, retweeting videos that appear to show glitching tabulation machines and comments alleging political interference.

Climate Reparations? When nature strikes—you pay! Climate ‘loss and damage’ hits the UN

The Democrats Go By Klaus Schwab’s Playbook


Are you ready to pay climate reparations totaling more than all the money in the world for disasters nature caused?

For years CFACT has warned of plans to add “loss and damage” to the UN climate regime, making wealthy nations liable to compensate developing countries when extreme weather strikes.

This week 130 nations placed a draft loss and damage funding plan formally on the agenda for the first time at a UN climate conference.  Will the Biden Administration give in to this?  Who else?

Read the official UN COP 27 loss and damage proposal for yourself at CFACT.org.

China is masterfully outplaying Biden and the rest of the free world by both pushing loss and damage forward and exempting itself from paying.  This advances China’s strategy to supplant U.S. influence in the developing world.

This is incredibly dangerous, not to mention ruinously expensive.

David Wojick underlines the danger perfectly at CFACT.org with his coverage of a report the new left-wing government of Colombia submitted to COP 27 estimating its climate “loss and damage” at a mind-blowing $800 billion per year.

That’s just for one small South American country!

Wojick explains that:

Colombia is a relatively small country with a GDP of around $300 billion a year, about the 40th largest in the world and just 0.4% of the global total. Its “loss and damage” claim is roughly 2.5 times its GDP, so let’s assume that ratio globally.

World GDP is about $81 trillion, which multiplied by 2.5 equals just over $200 trillion a year…

Before the “loss and damage” talks proceed we should ask “What kind of money are we talking about?” Because there is no point in talking about paying the developing countries hundreds of trillions of dollars. It cannot happen.

The UN draft demands a loss and damage funding mechanism be in place and operating within two years, before the start of COP 29 in 2024.

The COP 27 draft calls for loss and damage reparations funds that are:

a) Urgent and immediate
b) New, additional, predictable and adequate so as to assist developing countries in meeting the costs of addressing loss and damage;
c) Additional to adaptation and mitigation funding;
d) Additional;
e) Predictable;
f) Public in origin;
g) Multilateral in origin;
h) Taking a whole-of-institution/organization approach;
i) Timely and through a simple and fast process, without the need for lengthy bureaucratic procedures;
j) Disbursed quickly;

What “loss and damage” scheme will Biden and the West agree to at the UN climate summit in Egypt?

You are not responsible for the weather in Colombia or anywhere else.  America has always been prepared to generously aid a neighbor in distress and should continue to do so.  That is entirely different than accepting legal liability.

Any loss and damage “compromise” in Egypt represents the thin end of a perilous wedge.

America must declare an unequivocal “no” to climate reparations at the COP 27 climate talks.

Anything is too much.

Watch:

FBI Director Refuses To Answer Whether Agency Had Sources ‘Dressed As Trump Supporters’ In J6 Riots

by Trevor Schakohl, Daily Caller, November 15, 2022:

FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to answer multiple questions Tuesday from a Republican congressman concerning whether FBI sources were embedded among Jan. 6 protesters during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Worldwide Threats to the Homeland.

Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins asked Wray at the hearing if the FBI had “confidential human sources embedded within the Jan. 6 protesters” that day. Wray said he had to “be very careful about when we do and do not and where we have and have not used” such sources, “categorically” denying that bureau sources or employees “instigated or orchestrated Jan. 6.”…

“Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol on Jan. 6 prior to the doors being opened?” Higgins subsequently questioned. Wray began to repeat that he needed to be “very careful,” but the congressman loudly insisted, “It should be a no! Can you not tell the American people no?”

The FBI director urged Higgins not to “read anything into” his choice not to divulge information about informants, with committee Chairman Bennie Thompson cutting off the exchange for time.

Republicans Announce Investigation Into Joe Biden, Allege He Was Directly ‘Involved’ With Hunter’s Dealings

House Republicans announced they were launching an investigation into President Joe Biden at a press conference Thursday, alleging that the elder Biden was “involved” in his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings.

Republican Reps. James Comer of Kentucky and Jim Jordan of Ohio, citing unnamed whistleblowers, alleged that Joe Biden was the “chairman of the board” of the Biden family empire and oversaw Hunter’s business activity, claiming to find evidence of conspiracy to defraud the United States and money laundering. Hunter Biden currently holds a minority stake in a Chinese private equity firm responsible for investing in a previously sanctioned technology company that committed human rights violations against Uyghurs, and the new accusations point to involvement in the energy industry.

“This is an investigation of Joe Biden,” Comer said. “I think we’ve laid out the evidence as to why we feel it’s important, and we’re going to move forward with that.”

The lawmakers allege that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden participated in “waste, fraud, and abuse” relating to business dealings and plan to release a report Thursday to outline their claims.

“We find evidence that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden were involved in a scheme to try to get China to buy liquified natural gas. People are in outrage over China buying farmland in the Dakotas. What about China starting to buy into our American energy industry?” Comer added.

Comer was referring to documents found on Hunter Biden’s laptop that showed he was engaged in business talks with Chinese companies to sell American natural gas.

“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals and is he compromised? That’s our investigation,” Comer said. The Representatives hope to find “why [Biden] lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s international business schemes”

Hunter has been under federal investigation since 2018, after he allegedly failed to pay taxes and lied on a firearm application. U.S. Attorney David Weiss has conducted the investigation and would be the person who levies the charges.

In September, over 30 Senate Republicans called for U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to grant special counsel protections and authorities to Weiss as he continued to investigate Hunter Biden. The request stemmed from a letter that claims Hunter Biden has a growing amount of evidence against him relating to federal crimes, including, but not limited to, tax fraud, money laundering and foreign-lobbying violations.

The request for counsel follows a September claim by one of Hunter Biden’s former business associates, Tony Bobulinski, that former FBI agent Timothy Thibault worked to conceal relevant information about the Biden family, particularly his relationship with the Bidens. Legislators alleged that Thibault attempted to halt the FBI’s investigation into Hunter Biden.

In October, Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley called on law enforcement to release records detailing “potential criminal conduct” committed by Biden’s sons after leaked emails pointed to a Biden owned real estate company receiving a $40 million investment from a Russian oligarch.

Waters: ‘You Cannot Object’ to FTX Donations if They’re Legal

UPDATE: REAL AMERICA – Dan Ball W/ Marc Morano, Breaking Down The Ties Between The WEF & FTX


Thursday on CNBC’s Closing Bell, House Financial Services Committee Chair and anti-Trump hysteric Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) denied that there was a failure to provide oversight and regulation of former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried and FTX because of his campaign donations and said that “those contributions may have been done in an attempt to influence” but if people follow laws governing campaign donations, “then you cannot object to the fact that they give contributions.”

The host asked, “What do you say to the cynics that are looking at all those campaign contributions that he made, including many to Democrats, 40 million in the midterms, which made it the Democrats’ second-largest donor, and wonder if there wasn’t oversight and regulation of him and his firm because he was such an important donor to your party?”

Waters replied, “No. What we understand about the election systems in this country is there are rules to giving donations, and when one follows those rules, then you cannot object to the fact that they give contributions and they followed the law in the way that they give them. But, as I understand it, without the investigation having gone on, that there were contributions made to Democrats and Republicans, and certainly, those contributions may have been done in an attempt to influence. But of course, we have to deal with that as regulators and as members of Congress with the responsibility for oversight. And so, we will be a part of what is going on with these hearings and investigations and we will do everything that we can to expose any violations that were obviously made.”

Translation: We will overlook any violations involving contributions given to Democrats.

2020 Election Fraud and National Security Breach Case No. 22-380 now on the the U.S. Supreme Court docket

The American Media Group’s Medeea Greere in a November 17th, 2022 article titled Uh, Guys… A Supreme Court Case Regarding The 2020 Election Just Hit The Docket reports,

A Supreme Court Case Regarding The 2020 Election Just Hit The Docket

> It involves the possible removal of a sitting President and Vice President of the United States along with members of the United States Congress.

> This action is against 388 federal officers in their official capacities which include President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr, Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Michael Richard Pence (“Respondents”)

Supreme Court case No. 22-380 regarding the 2020 election just hit the docket… (Response due November 23, 2022)

It involves the possible removal of a sitting President and Vice President of the United States, along with members of the United States Congress.

This action is against 388 federal officers in their official capacities which include President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr, Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Michael Richard Pence (“Respondents”).

Check the document for the full list. Also, it is about the congress ignoring over one hundred claimants, on J6, that the election was rigged. They did not investigate the claim, as they should have, and installed Biden. Under the constitution, this is treasonous, as they were aiding the enemy.

When the allegations of a rigged election came forward, the respondents had a duty under law to investigate it or be removed from office.

QUESTIONS PRESENTED

A serious conflict exists between decisions rendered from this Court and lower appeal courts, along with constitutional provisions and statutes, in deciding whether or not the trial court has jurisdiction to try the merits of this case.

This case uncovers a serious national security breach that is unique and is of first impression, and due to the serious nature of this case it involves the possible removal of a sitting President and Vice President of the United States along with members of the United States Congress, while deeming them unfit from ever holding office under Federal, State, County or local Governments found within the United States of America, and at the same time the trial court also has the authority, to be validated by this Court, to authorize the swearing in of the legal and rightful heirs for President and Vice President of the United States. In addition there are two doctrines that conflict with each other found in this case affecting every court in this country. These doctrines are known as the doctrine of equitable maxim and the doctrine of the object principle of justice. Equitable maxim created by this court, which the lower court used to dismiss this case, sets in direct violation of the object principle of justice also partially created by this Court and supported by other appeal courts and constitutional provisions.

These conflicts call for the supervisory power of this Court to resolve these conflicts, which has not, but should be, settled by this Court without delay.

Hold on, We’re Moving at Lightning Speed Into Transhumanism

Is Your Body the Legal Property of Big Pharma? Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola


STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • The political corruption we see today has grown out of a long-term unholy alliance between U.S. intelligence agencies and organized crime syndicates
  • This intelligence/organized crime ring is setting into place a technocratic form of feudalism, a transhumanist slavery system
  • Transhumanism is eugenics rebranded, and the merger of Silicon Valley companies with Big Pharma is eugenics framed as health care. COVID has now shown us that this rebranded form of eugenics can be forced on us
  • While transhumanism is sold to us as a way to provide health equity for all, the reality is the complete opposite. Military reports confirm that the emergence of augmented cyborgs will not create equity but rather increase disparities. Unless you’re in an elite class, transhumanism will not benefit you. Instead, you’re destined to be a lab rat to help perfect transhumanist tech, as we’re seeing right now with the COVID shots

In the video above, Glenn Beck interviews investigative journalist Whitney Webb about her book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime That Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” Parts 1 and 2.

These books provide the necessary framework to understand not just Jeffrey Epstein’s geopolitical role and function, but also, more broadly, the deep connections between the U.S. intelligence community and organized crime.

The political corruption we see today grew out of this unholy alliance, which has led to blackmail and bribery being two key strategies by which the wealthy self-described “elites” maintain power and influence from behind the scenes.

As noted by Beck, Webb “is a massive threat to powerful people. If people will listen and … explore what she’s saying, the game is up.” I agree. People need to understand how the system we thought we knew actually works, how it’s been used against us, and what the end game is.

Organized Crime at the Highest Levels

Epstein’s pedophilia and sexual blackmail enterprise was a central cog in this network of corruption for decades. He was also involved in many other questionable and/or criminal enterprises, including financial crimes, but he wasn’t necessarily at the top level in any of them. Webb describes him more as a middle-management-type of character, carrying out orders from higher-ups, including U.S. intelligence.

Overall, these “higher-ups” are people who favor globalism and global governance, and who don’t want the United States to have a monopoly on power. This is part of why the power of the U.S. is now being dismantled before our eyes, but the undermining and infiltration have been going on for decades.

As noted by Beck and Webb, our government is basically being run by organized crime, and this organized crime ring is setting into place a technocratic form of feudalism, a digital slavery system.

The reason Epstein’s financial crimes matter is because they’re like a microcosm of what has been going on in the U.S. for decades. According to Catherine Austin Fitz and Mark Skidmore, an estimated $21 trillion of U.S. taxpayer money have already been looted, stolen and siphoned out. Where did all that money go? Who took it?

Against that background of having already been looted, we’re now facing a radical degradation of our standard of living, with rising inflation and manufactured energy and food crises piled on top of each other.

All of these things, Webb says, are part of a plan to coerce us into accepting the unacceptable. Making sure people are cold, hungry, destitute and desperate is a surefire way to get people to cooperate with the globalist takeover, which includes a radical transition into transhumanism.

Transhumanism Is Eugenics Rebranded

In the interview, Webb reviews the history of transhumanism, the roots of which go back to Julian Huxley, brother of the famous author Aldous Huxley. Julian was president of the British Eugenics Society.

When the United Nations was created after World War II, he was put in charge of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the stated aim of which is to promote world peace and security through international cooperation in education, arts, sciences and culture.

But in writing about his vision for UNESCO, Julian said about eugenics, “We need to make the unthinkable thinkable again.” Ten years later, in 1957, he coined the term “transhumanism,” and described it as eugenics through the merging of man with machine.

So, transhumanism is eugenics rebranded. This is also corroborated by the fact that the same people, families and organizations that in the past supported eugenics now support transhumanism. Likewise, the merger of Silicon Valley companies with Big Pharma is nothing other than eugenics framed as health care. And COVID has now shown us that this rebranded form of eugenics can be forced on us.

Transhumanism Is Not for Betterment of the Average Person

As noted by Webb, while transhumanism is sold to us as a way for all people to obtain health and longevity — health equity for all! — the reality will be far from equitable.

She points out that science fiction writer H.G Wells once described the transhumanist future as one in which there is a physically and intellectually augmented elite class, and squat, dwarf-like, slave underclass that eats bugs and doesn’t even have the cognitive capacity to rebel.

Sound familiar? The World Economic Forum and their allied networks are pushing for a transition from real meat to insects. One of the primary side effects of the bioweapon referred to as the “COVID-19 vaccine,” aside from early death, is neurological dysfunction, and the masking, lockdowns and shuttering of schools have resulted in children who are nonverbal, cognitively impaired and/or years behind on core reading and math skills.

The Transhumanist Plan Is Being Fast-Tracked

As detailed in “The Plan to Turn You Into a Genetically Edited Human Cyborg,” a 2021 report by the U.K. Ministry of Defense and the German Bundeswehr Office for Defense Planning offers shocking insights into the dystopian cybernetics future that global technocrats are pushing us toward.

The report, “Human Augmentation — The Dawn of a New Paradigm, a Strategic Implications Project,”1 reviews the scientific goals of the U.K. and German defense ministries, and they are precisely what the title suggests. Human augmentation is stressed as being a key area of development.

It’s worth noting that anything released to the public is a decade or more behind current capabilities, so everything in this report can be considered dated news, even though it reads like pure science fiction.

Importantly, the report notes that “Human augmentation has the potential to … change the meaning of what it means to be a human.” This is precisely what Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), has stated is the goal of The Fourth Industrial Revolution.2

Schwab has stated that “the Fourth Industrial Revolution will lead to a fusion of our physical, our digital and our biological identities.”3 Beyond your own “enhanced” 5G cloud-connected self, the WEF foresees a near future in which everyone’s digital identity is connected to each other through an “Internet of Bodies” (IoB).4,5

The fact that we’re moving at lightning speed into the transhumanist future envisioned by the WEF and militaries around the world is also evidenced by President Biden’s September 2022 Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology, which places development of genetic engineering techniques “to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology” on the fast-track.

US Defense Department Is Also Working on Human Cyborgs

In a September 14, 2022, Substack article,6 Dr. Robert Malone also reviewed the U.S. DoD’s plans for an army of human cyborgs. Certain report titles alone tell the story, such as the Biotechnologies for Health and Human Performance Council’s report7 “Cyborg Soldier 2050: Human/Machine Fusion and the Implications for the Future of the DOD.” According to the assessment abstract:

“The primary objective of this effort was to forecast and evaluate the military implications of machines that are physically integrated with the human body to augment and enhance human performance over the next 30 years.

This report summarizes this assessment and findings; identifies four potential military-use cases for new technologies in this area; and assesses their impact upon the DOD organizational structure, warfighter doctrine and tactics, and interoperability with U.S. allies and civil society.”

Human augmentation technologies deemed technically feasible by 2050 at the latest include ocular enhancements to improve sight and situational awareness, optogenetic bodysuit to restore or improve muscular strength and control, auditory enhancements, and neural enhancement of the brain for two-way data transfers and brain-to-brain communication.

With H.G. Wells’ description of our transhumanist future in mind (the two-tiered society of augmented super humans and bug-eating devolved slaves), it’s worth noting that both the DoD’s “Cyborg Soldier” report and the British/German “Human Augmentation” report address the fact that human augmentation will inevitably widen already existing disparities, inequalities and inequities — not close them! — and therefore, “efforts should be undertaken to reverse negative cultural narratives of enhancement technologies.”8

In other words, don’t let people come to the conclusion that human “borgs” are a bad idea, because at worst that might prevent their development, and at best, it’ll pitch regular people against the augmented elite, making their efforts to rule more difficult. Combating negative narratives about the borgification of mankind is also necessary in order to maintain the lie that transhumanism is about leveling the playing field and allowing everyone to live longer and have lifelong health.

Final Thoughts

I don’t know what it will take to prevent the dystopian post-human world envisioned by technocratic transhumanist elitists, but I suspect education would be a cornerstone of such an endeavor. In order for there to be a resistance, enough people need to be aware of what the plan is, and where we’re actually being led with all these novel therapies and inventions.

In the shorter term, it’s crucial to realize that the fast-tracking of “genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers” means they’re going to cut corners. Loads of them.

Testing is basically going to be done on the population at large, just as they’ve done with the COVID jabs. The results of such experimentation are relatively predictable. People will be seriously injured and many will die.

We also still don’t know what the legal standing of people whose genetics are altered by RNA might be, now or in the future, since that has yet to be established.

So please, think long and hard before you agree to take any of these forthcoming gene therapies, be they COVID boosters or any other “vaccines.” They’re not vaccines. They’re gene transfer technologies that alter your DNA.9,10 They’re part of the transhumanist agenda, the Fourth Industrial Revolution — and remember, transhumanism is a eugenics agenda. Same agenda, just new tools.
