McCarthy: D.A. Alvin Bragg ‘Abusing His Office to Target President Trump’

By Discover The Networks

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took to Twitter on Sunday to declare that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is “abusing his office” by going after former President Trump, while Democrats, including Bragg, are allowing crime to run rampant.

“Alvin Bragg is abusing his office to target President Trump while he’s reduced a majority of felonies, including violent crimes, to misdemeanors. He has different rules for political opponents,” McCarthy wrote following Trump saying he believes he will be arrested this coming week after “illegal leaks.”

“Republicans stopped the radical DC crime law, and we will investigate any use of federal funds that are used to facilitate the perversion of justice by Soros-backed DA’s across the country,” McCarthy also noted. He was referring to Congress passing a disapproval resolution that ultimately killed the Washington, DC, soft-on-crime criminal code revision legislation.

McCarthy also called for “relevant committees to immediately investigate” if Bragg is using federal funds to “subvert our democracy by interfering in elections” by going after the former president, who had already announced he would be making another White House bid in 2024.

“An outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy added.

Support from George Soros

Bragg’s 2021 campaign for D.A. received the support of the powerful Democrat multi-billionaire, George Soros, who donated approximately $1 million to the leftwing activist group Color of Change, which in turn diverted donations to support Bragg’s candidacy in New York. Moreover, Soros contributed $50,000 to People’s Action Power and $72,000 to the New York Justice & Public Safety PAC, money that likely aided the Bragg campaign…

House Republicans Demand Documents From Prosecutor Investigating Trump thumbnail

House Republicans Demand Documents From Prosecutor Investigating Trump

By The Daily Caller

Three House Republican committee chairmen are demanding documents from the New York prosecutor who is investigating former President Donald Trump’s payments to an adult actress.

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer, and House Administration Committee chairman Bryan Steil are calling on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to provide all documents and communications involving his investigation into Trump, as well as sit for a transcribed interview. A New York grand jury is investigating Trump’s 2016 payments to Stormy Daniels, and the former president said Saturday that he expects to be arrested Tuesday, March 21.

You are reportedly about to engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority: the indictment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office. This indictment comes after years of your office searching for a basisany basison which to bring charges, ultimately settling on a novel legal theory untested anywhere in the country and one that federal authorities declined to pursue,” the lawmakers wrote.

#BREAKING: @Jim_Jordan, @RepJamesComer, and @RepBryanSteil Demand Communications, Documents, and Testimony from Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

— House Judiciary GOP (@JudiciaryGOP) March 20, 2023

Elected Republican officials and presidential candidates have defended Trump against the likely prosecution, highlighting liberal billionaire George Soros’ donations to Bragg. The Manhattan DA has also declined to prosecute numerous felonies, the Republicans have noted, while investigating Trump for allegedly falsifying business records, a misdemeanor.

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy pledged action against Bragg on Sunday at the House Republican Conference retreat, telling reporters that he was speaking with Jordan about it. He later added that he does not believe people should protest an indictment.

Your decision to pursue such a politically motivated prosecutionwhile adopting progressive criminal justice policies that allow career ‘criminals [to] run[ ] the streets’ of Manhattanrequires congressional scrutiny about how public safety funds appropriated by Congress are implemented by local lawenforcement agencies. In addition, your apparent decision to pursue criminal charges where federal authorities declined to do so requires oversight to inform potential legislative reforms about the delineation of prosecutorial authority between federal and local officials. Finally, because the circumstances of this matter stem, in part, from Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, Congress may consider legislative reforms to the authorities of special counsels and their relationships with other prosecuting entities,” the Republicans added.

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, paid Daniels $130,000 days before the 2016 election as part of a non-disclosure agreement related to an affair. Daniels later violated the NDA and was ordered to pay Trump $300,000. Prosecutors reportedly believe that the payment violated New York law since Trump classified it as a “legal expense.”

The Truth Is Out There, But You Can’t Have It thumbnail

The Truth Is Out There, But You Can’t Have It

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

More details are emerging about the federal government’s wide-ranging censorship enterprise.  The 19th release of Twitter files shows the federal government conspired with outside actors to censor information about COVID, the vaccines, and natural immunity.  The files document an effort by the Stanford Virality Project, federal agencies, and a number of organizations often with taxpayer funding to monitor and suppress billions of social media posts with COVID-related content.  At least six social media platforms participated, sending millions of posts to the enterprise every day for review.  “Government, academia, and an oligopoly of would-be corporate competitors organized quickly behind a secret, unified effort to control political messaging,” an observer said.

The enterprise attempted to control what was to be considered true and not true for all – which the government is not supposed to do.  Even worse, it concocted and pushed narratives – phony stories – disregarding the truth and the facts which were cast aside.  They didn’t follow the science; they followed their inner lights about what citizens should be allowed to hear.  They suppressed “true stories that could fuel hesitancy” like “celebrity deaths after vaccine” or the closing of a school because COVID vaccination did not prevent illness.   These true stories were considered “misinformation” that shouldn’t be allowed out there.  It is truly stunning to read about these censors openly discussing how the truth is “misinformation”.  The federal government didn’t want you to have the truth, so it shelled out a billion dollars to media outlets and social media companies to try to make sure you didn’t get it and to give grief to anyone trying to bring you the truth.  The truth about natural immunity, lab leaks, and failures of vaccines to stop illness was suppressed.  The enterprisers also suppressed information about COVID really not being very lethal (relatively speaking) and criticism of vaccine mandates and passports.  Instead, they pushed the phony narrative about the vaccines being ‘safe and effective’ on us any way they could.  In this alternate universe, true stories of vaccine side effects were deemed “actionable’ by a federal government determined to suppress the truth.

This Stanford-led effort was only a part of the federal government’s wide-ranging censorship enterprise.  I’ve described other parts in previous commentaries, like the Global Engagement Center, a State Department-led censorship exercise involving the Pentagon, CIA, FBI, DHS, and other agencies.  Now comes news that “NewsGuard”, an Internet so-called fact-checking service, was getting Defense Department dough to harass conservative news outlets, sending inquiries demanding the outlets justify their reporting.  NewsGuard is the Left in action, having been founded by Steve Brill, a longtime Democrat operative and campaign donor.  NewsGuard issued unfavorable ratings that damaged the outlets’ ability to get ad revenue.  See how the game is played?

There’s more.  Other new stories describe the 18th release of Twitter files giving more details about how Twitter and other social media platforms regularly met with the FBI and DHS.  They also set up a system to receive thousands of reports from government agencies about accounts and posts the agencies deemed objectionable.  Numerous accounts were deleted upon receipt of these reports.  Some were not accused of misinformation; they just ran afoul of government narratives about the war in Ukraine and other matters.  Again, taxpayer-funded outside groups played a large part in the scheme.  They saw themselves as the anointed ones, a self-appointed Truth Squad that would save humanity from itself.  The groups recommended the tech companies be forced to turn over all their data, that speech the groups deemed offensive be placed in a “holding area”, and the government root out disinformation even if it costs us our freedom.  Gee whiz!

One more little story to show you just how bad things have gotten.  Two FBI agents showed up at a person’s job in New York to interrogate the person about the person’s Tweets criticizing Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company that sells one of the COVID vaccines.  Apparently, the FBI doesn’t have anything better to do these days than terrorize ordinary citizens about not conforming to phony government narratives.

This is fascism – the unholy merger of Big Government and Big Business in a previously unimaginable concentration of power to deny you your rights.  Where is Antifa when we need them?  We sure could use some fascism-busters right about now.

Banned From LinkedIn, Who Is Giving These Orders? thumbnail

Banned From LinkedIn, Who Is Giving These Orders?

By The Geller Report

On Thursday, I got yet another notice from the LinkedIn’s “Trust & Safety Team”: “Your post goes against our policy on misinformation.  It has been removed and only you can access it.”  The post that LinkedIn found objectionable was from my website, the Geller Report, and was entitled “CORPORATE STATE: Domestic Terror Group Black Lives Matter Received Nearly $83 Billion from Corporations.”

My post consisted of an excerpt from a Breitbart article plus three lines of my own commentary.  LinkedIn didn’t dispute the accuracy of anything in my post or its source; it just doesn’t want it said.  This comes after LinkedIn had banned me from its platform for nearly three years for posting accurate and well sourced information that goes against the leftist narrative.

Who is giving these orders?  Now that we have the Twitter Files, we need the LinkedIn Files.

I was banned back in August 2020 without warning or notice.  I just went to my LinkedIn account one day and found that I had been locked out of it.  I appealed to the corporate behemoth and received an email on August 24, 2020, saying: “Your account has been restricted due to a violation to the LinkedIn’s User Agreement relating to the following false content.”  The LinkedIn drone who wrote the email offered four examples of my unacceptable content.  These were all Geller Report posts:

All of these were simply excerpts from cited news stories with my own commentary added.  My commentary didn’t add any additional information; it just commented on the information provided in the source articles, which were noted and linked.

No one has disputed the accuracy of any of these stories.

COVID, Soros, and Jew-hatred: that sums up the obsessions of the modern left, and that’s what got me banned from LinkedIn.  It was only after Elon Musk bought Twitter, and I was unbanned from there, and tweeted about the LinkedIn ban, that the LinkedIn leftists were shamed into lifting the permanent ban.

But the notice I got Thursday about my Black Lives Matter post being unacceptable at LinkedIn shows that nothing has really changed.  I fully expect that before too long, I’ll receive another permanent ban, and that once again it will result from my posting news articles that are perfectly accurate but that the leftist elites don’t want disseminated.

But who exactly are those elites when it comes to LinkedIn?  Who is giving these orders, that what is supposed to be a portal for professionals to connect with prospective employees and for like-minded people in the same field to interact has now become (like all the others) a site on which everyone must march in the left’s totalitarian lockstep or not be allowed to participate at all?  Is LinkedIn operating on orders from or in concert with officials in the federal government, after the manner of what was exposed regarding pre-Musk Twitter in the Twitter Files?

Clearly, we need a LinkedIn Files, as well as a Facebook Files, a YouTube Files, and probably even an Instagram Files.  We need to know how much these woke corporations are collaborating with leftist government bureaucrats who don’t believe in the freedom of speech in order to shut down the speech of those who dare to dissent from the left’s sinister narrative.  LinkedIn and all the others aren’t silencing and deplatforming people who are actually purveying “disinformation.”  What the Biden regime and the left in general refer to as “disinformation” is fully accurate information that cuts against what they want the American people to believe and exposes the Big Lies they’ve been forcing upon us.

LinkedIn needs to come clean about whether or not it has been practicing censorship on orders from the people who are running this corrupt and anti-American administration.  And House Republicans need to start speaking out strongly and loudly against these relentless assaults upon our constitutional freedoms.

Ukraine and the Strategy of the Indirect Approach thumbnail

Ukraine and the Strategy of the Indirect Approach

By Wallace Bruschweiler

Re: Ukraine. Let’s assume that Ukraine, even with weapons help from all the civilized nations, cannot strike Russia hard enough to win a short War of Annihilation. Let’s assume that Russia’s huge natural resources are so great that Ukraine cannot survive a long War of Attrition. Given those two assumptions, Ukraine’s future looks bleak; however, what if we in the West adopt Sir Basil H. Liddell Hart’s Strategy of the Indirect Approach?

Every nation has certain interests it wants to be met. For example, Sweden would like to join NATO. But NATO-member Turkey opposes Sweden’s membership in NATO because Sweden has been supportive of the Kurds along Turkey’s southeastern border, who want to have their own U.S.-allied Kurdish nation.

Turkey wants to join the European Union (E.U.) But Sweden and other E.U. members are not comfortable about having more welfare-consuming Muslims inside the E.U.
Clever diplomacy on our part might get Sweden inside NATO and Turkey in the E.U.; provided Turkey, because of Putin’s interference with Freedom of Navigation across the Black Sea, shuts down the Dardanelles to all Russian shipping, cutting off Russia’s access to its naval and air bases in Syria, its access to the Mediterranean, and to the Atlantic Ocean.

Sweden, by the way, has an interest that transcends membership in NATO. If Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, Putin will likely keep going until Putin has Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, back under Russian control, making the Baltic Sea once again a Russian lake and tiny Sweden facing a much larger Russian Navy.

Okay. So, what if the Sweden/Turkey deal isn’t enough to turn some of Putin’s military resources away from Ukraine? We might induce ChiCom President XI to move his surplus of unmarried, horny, military-age males up to China’s border with Russian Siberia, poised to seize Russian oil and gas wells and some child-bearing Russian females to boot.
So, what could be offered to President XI to make that happen? We could offer to stop nagging Xi over his dictatorial treatment of Hong Kong. Or, stop nagging Xi about Xi’s genocide of the Uyghurs (pronounced wee-gurs) on his western border. We could offer to side with China on its oil claims in the Spratly Islands. We could offer Xi some U.S. crude oil at bargain prices. We could offer to curb the rapidly rising growth of the Japanese Navy. We could even offer Xi a free hand with regard to Taiwan. Gulp! Recall, Geopolitics is sometimes unscrupulous and not for the faint of heart.

So, let’s assume we get Turkey and the Chicoms to bite Putin in the derrière enough to turn Putin’s attention away from Ukraine and to his need to transit the Dardanelles and to Putin’s need to protect his Siberian oil fields. What do we get?

We buy the world some time. Maybe time for Putin’s health to crash? Maybe time for the Russians to topple Putin? Even buy some time to replace the Obama/Biden* “woke-weakened” military with an Armed Force that warrants fear and respect.

Let’s face it. The direct approach is not likely to stop Putin’s, possibly nuclear drive through Ukraine to the Baltic Sea. Some form of the Indirect Approach may be Western Civilization’s best hope.

Number of Children Identifying as Transgender Surges

By The Geller Report

Transgender identification is on the rise, especially among the youth. Now why is that? Because the left has made it the fashion. And kids follow the fashion. Trends and fashion (especially from the left) has always had it’s crazy, dark, wild, destructive aspects to it. What makes this so monstrous is it damages, destroys, and sexually mutilates the child for life after the fashion.

Keep your children out of public schools and off line.

Number of Youth Identifying as Transgender Surges

By: Breitbart News, March 16, 2023:

Tens of thousands of people are seeking life-changing, irreversible medical treatments in an attempt to change their sex.

Transgender identification is on the rise, especially among the youth. One report from the Pew Research Center found that a full five percent of young adults claim that their gender is different from their sex.

The report explains that “the share of U.S. adults who are transgender is particularly high among adults younger than 25,” then adds that “in this age group, 3.1% are a trans man or a trans woman, compared with just 0.5% of those ages 25 to 29.”

In addition, a Reuters report found that diagnoses of youth with gender dysphoria have skyrocketed in the U.S. in recent years. While there were just over 15,000 cases in 2017, the number has shot up to more than 42,o00 in 2021.

“As the number of transgender children has grown, so has their access to gender-affirming care, much of it provided at scores of clinics at major hospitals,” the report reads:

Mr. President, Fire Your Woke Minions And Appoint Some Competent People thumbnail

Mr. President, Fire Your Woke Minions And Appoint Some Competent People

By The Daily Caller

The failure of three banks in the last two weeks, including Silicon Valley Bank on Friday and Signature Bank on Sunday, is a saga of utter government incompetence. Call these bank collapses Biden’s Banking Busts. The Biden administration has been obsessing on woke causes while banks teeter toward insolvency.

Three days before Silicon Valley Bank collapsed, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen cautioned that climate change puts the banking industry at risk. Yellen was in la-la land, speculating that future storms and tornadoes could diminish the value of banks’ assets.

Weather is a risk, but she was oblivious to the much more immediate problem facing banks — the plummeting value of the bonds they own. She was heedless to the impending downfall of SVB and possibly several other small banks that had purchased long-term bonds when interest rates were near zero.

In 2022, after doing nothing to tame inflation the previous year, the Federal Reserve hiked rates repeatedly to make up for their previous inaction. Those rapid rate hikes, the most drastic in decades, made the banks’ bonds lose value.

A week before Yellen’s climate change harangue, Moody’s Investors Service already had delivered bad news to SVB that it was about to be downgraded several notches because its inventory of bonds was not worth enough to repay depositors. A day before Yellen’s loony speech, Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Chairman Martin Gruenberg also cautioned that the diminishing value of the bonds held by banks meant a $620 billion problem ahead.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a part of Yellen’s Treasury, is responsible for examining the financial condition of banks. It failed to avert the SVB collapse.

Yellen has been an outspoken activist for climate change, women’s rights and diversity, including appointing the Treasury’s first ever racial equity officer. Apparently, the hordes of bureaucrats working under her are also too busy with diversity, equity and inclusion seminars to prevent banks from failing.

As the SVB crisis unfolded, Yellen was MIA. Now she says she’s monitoring several banks “struggling with the whiplash in prices” of their bonds.

Financial experts warn smaller banks are in for a rough ride, though the big banks like JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and others are not apt to be in trouble.

Admittedly, SVB’s managers made mistakes. Banking’s first rule is that assets should match deposits. If depositors can demand their money back anytime, then using their money to buy long-term bonds is risky. SVB had to sell $21 billion worth of bonds at a fire sale, taking a $1.8 billion loss.

Trading was suspended Friday in the stocks of several small banks whose share prices plunged on fears they were in the same situation. On Sunday, New York bank regulators shut Signature Bank.

President Joe Biden created the perfect storm for what may become a string of banking busts. In 2021, he lied about inflation, saying it was temporary and “no serious economist” considered it a threat. Yellen and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, whose first term was about to expire, went along with Biden and did nothing to bring down prices. It was the single biggest monetary policy mistake in half a century.

Then in March 2022, newly reappointed Powell launched aggressive rate hiking to cure what the Wall Street Journal called “a mess largely of the Fed’s own making.” As rates rose fast, startup companies could no longer afford to borrow, and instead started withdrawing their bank deposits. Without regulatory intervention, the downfall of SVB was almost a foregone conclusion.

On March 7, Powell predicted that the Fed will likely “increase the pace of rate hikes” to continue bringing down inflation. A task made more difficult by our spendaholic president’s budget proposal, which is an inflation accelerator.

As rates rise, more banks could be in trouble. Continued government incompetence is not an option.

Mr. President, get rid of your woke minions and appoint competent people. Our money and jobs are at stake.

On Sunday night, Biden said he’s “firmly committed to holding those responsible for this mess fully accountable.” Look in the mirror, Mr. President.

Instead, he’s looking at the list of Democratic campaign donors and scurrying to bail them out. Ninety-eight percent of all political contributions from people who worked at internet companies went to Democrats in 2020. Silicon Valley residents coughed up nearly $200 million for Democrats. No surprise that the Treasury and the Fed are offering bailouts, whether they use that word or not.

Biden’s reckless spending and incompetent monetary policy are causing this string of banking busts. And John Q. Public will end up paying one way or another.

How the Democrats Bake Systemic Fraud Into Our Elections thumbnail

How the Democrats Bake Systemic Fraud Into Our Elections

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

Last week, I told you about individual wrongdoers – mostly Democrats – who were arrested and sent to jail for voter fraud.  But criminal wrongdoing in our elections is also perpetrated – again, mostly by Democrats – by election officials, Democrat and left-wing advocacy groups, and other systemic players engaged in wholesale fraud.

Starting with election officials, a Republican county elections commissioner in New York was charged with 12 felony counts of using other people’s identifications to request, complete, and submit absentee ballots.  A Democrat township clerk in Michigan who was also a candidate was convicted of felony ballot tampering for opening a sealed ballot canister, invalidating the votes inside.  The Democrat New Mexico Secretary of State is accused of unlawfully receiving county election totals before counties certify results and using an uncertified software program to add up the totals.  Elections officials in Oakland, California are accused of ignoring a court order, unsealing ballot boxes without public observation, and making it impossible for citizen observers to monitor and understand the vote tallying process.

Lawless election officials are not the only source of systemic wrongdoing in our elections.  Left-wing and Democrat advocacy groups are major sources, as well.  The Virginia Democratic Party ballot harvesting manual instructs party activists to include dead people and bad addresses when compiling voter contact lists.  This information goes into a party database which is used to target likely Democrat voters.  The Democrat Party did not respond when asked about this.

Left-leaning nonprofits like the Center for Voter Information and the Voter Participation Center are abusing their 501(c)(3) tax status by registering likely Democrat voters.  Targeting particular demographic groups likely to vote Democrat skirts IRS rules preventing tax-exempt organizations from engaging in partisan activity.

In Wisconsin, a leftist group paid voters $250 if they succeeded in persuading their friends to vote for the Leftist candidate in the state Supreme Court race.  Under state law, it is felony bribery to give anything of value to any person for inducing others to vote or not vote for or against particular candidates.

The Federal Election Commission received but has ignored information about campaign ‘money mules’ operating in Missouri, Georgia, and elsewhere.  Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock of Georgia was the top beneficiary identified in the scheme.  To give you some idea of how the scheme works, ‘Steven in Missouri’ was somehow able to make over 14,000 campaign donations totaling $180,000 in two years despite being unemployed.  Something’s not right with this picture.

Yet more systemic election fraud is found in a Florida county where felons vote illegally, dead voters are sent mail-in ballots, voter addresses are changed without request, and individuals are putting multiple ballots into drop boxes despite being limited under state law to two.  This information came from a whistleblower inside an elections office who was upset these problems were not being addressed.  The office is run by a Democrat and would not respond to questions.

Here is one more way systemic fraud can occur:  County officials can change the zip code of tens of thousands of voters all at once.  Mail ballots go out, but the ones with the wrong zip code are undeliverable.  Someone scoops them up, then the elections office changes the zip codes back.  Voters go to the polls, only to be told they already voted, their ballot has already been cast by somebody else.  A new data company uncovered this kind of fraud in Wisconsin and Florida, including one county where more than 31,000 zip codes were changed this way.  The company bought daily voter rolls and tracked zip code changes, discovering how the game is played.

We are supposed to have representative government in this country.  But we cannot be assured of true representation unless systemic fraud, perpetrated mostly by Democrats, is rooted out from the elections process.

Our Cultural Whitewashing thumbnail

Our Cultural Whitewashing

By Jerry Newcombe

Not too long ago Mr. Potato Head was in trouble. In a day when even a sitting Supreme Court justice claims not to know how to define a woman, the hubris of calling any toy “Mr.” is just too much for our present culture.

Even Piers Morgan was upset about this tempest-in-a-teapot because the “Mr.” part of Mr. Potato Head was “unsetting a few wokies.”

Giving in to wokeness is one thing. Sensitivity to others is another. LEGO announced some new additions to their lineup of toys. wrote recently, “LEGO, which recently unveiled a range of new characters, with a range of skin tones and nationalities, several of whom have disabilities, has revealed…the details of each of these characters. The new generation of Lego friends are a diverse bunch, representing a multitude of backgrounds and lived experiences.”

One can understand being sensitive to others, as in the LEGO example. But often the woke revolution goes too far.

Even children’s literature today is unsafe. Dr. Seuss has been banned by some, and even the late, beloved children’s writer, Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, recently came under fire. He almost had hundreds of changes posthumously made to his books.

Thankfully, after the uproar against the attempted bowdlerizing Dahl’s works, Random House decided to continue to make available the books as Roald Dahl wrote them—while still offering the new, edited, sanitized versions.

About 25 years ago, I paid good money to the estate of Roald Dahl to use portions of his classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in a book of short stories I compiled.

My book, The Moral of the Story, published by Broadman & Holman (1996, now out of print), included selections from various stories that helped illustrate the nefarious nature of the Seven Deadly Sins. They are Pride, Greed, Envy, Anger, Lust, Gluttony, and Sloth. The Bible condemns each of these sins. But would today’s culture perhaps make each of them a virtue?

Portions of Dahl’s Willy Wonka story were perfect for the section of my book dealing with gluttony. Dahl cleverly exposed the pitfalls of eating “beyond one’s seams,” including one boy named Augustus Gloop, that “nincompoop.” Dahl called him “fat.” The modern censors tried to change that and other offensive details.

In the famous scene I was able to reproduce, some fortunate children win a special visit to Willy Wonka’s magical chocolate factory. While on the tour, Augustus Gloop is unable to resist the temptation to get down on the banks of a magic chocolate river and lap as much of it as he can, like a dog.

Wonka and Gloop’s parents warn Augustus against doing this. “But Augustus was deaf to everything except the call of his enormous stomach,” writes Dahl. And then Augustus Gloop experiences humiliating punishment for his gluttony.

Part of the impulse to “clean up” Dahl’s writings is to make sure that people wouldn’t be offended.

But who knows how many children might have been warned into avoiding a life of excessive overeating and the consequent deleterious effects on health that flow from it? God warns against gluttony and other sins because they are harmful for us.

With our cultural revolution, which can’t tell men from women, if you say that some behavior someone engages in is wrong, you might hurt their feelings. Well, there is a Constitutional freedom of speech. But there’s not a Constitutional right to not be offended. Besides, hurt feelings might actually lead to needed changes.

The Bible is frank about man being sinful. The founders of America acknowledged that reality and created the most durable governing document in history, the U.S. Constitution, because it conforms to the empirical reality that we are sinful.

John Adams, a key founding father, commented on man’s sinful nature by observing that those in power tend to become like “ravenous beasts of prey.” Thus, the founders separated power so that no one group could lord it over the others.

The Scriptures say that we have all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. They also explain how God forgives sin for those who repent and call on Jesus who died for sinners and rose again from the dead.

However, in our post-Christian society, there is a major push to make everything woke—even by whitewashing classic children’s literature. Where does it all stop? When can children be children again?

When can sin be viewed as sin again? Isn’t it better to admit wrongdoing than to try to redefine what is wrong in the first place? There are moral standards that come from beyond ourselves. As Cecil B. De Mille once noted, “We cannot break the Ten Commandments. We can only break ourselves against them.” Thus, endeth my Lenten meditation.

Being a Democrat Means Eventually Having to Say You’re Sorry thumbnail

Being a Democrat Means Eventually Having to Say You’re Sorry

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

Last week, a former advisor to Democrats Al Gore and Bill Clinton made an extraordinary confession and apologized to conservatives and Republicans for being so wrong about so many things.

Naomi Wolf issued a “formal letter of apology” for believing the Democrats’ “lies” about the January 6th attack on the Capitol:

I was duped, and that as a result I made mistakes in judgement, and that these mistakes, multiplied by the tens of thousands and millions on the part of people just like me, hurt millions of other people like you all, in existential ways…. I believed that Pres Trump instigated the riot at the Capitol — because I did not know that his admonition to his supporters to assemble “peacefully and patriotically” had been deleted from all of the news coverage that I read…. I owe you a full-throated apology.

She also apologized for lots of other things she wrongly believed:

  • I also believed wholesale so much else that has since turned out not to be as I was told it was by NPR, MSNBC and The New York Times.
  • I believed that stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop were Russian propaganda… til it was debunked.
  • I believed that President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia — until that assertion was dropped.
  • I believed that President Trump was a Russian asset, because the legacy media I read, said so
  • I believed in the entire Steele dossier, until I didn’t, because it all fell apart.

And here’s the kicker: “I am sorry I believed so much nonsense.”

Nonsense.  In the Right’s terms, Naomi Wolf got red-pilled, hit with undeniable doses of reality.  It really only takes five minutes with someone to rip apart the Left’s phony narratives and deprogram people out of the Democrat cult.  This is why the Democrats are afraid of people like me and do their darndest to shut us up.  Twitter and Facebook censored me.  It didn’t work.  The traffic on my website where this commentary appears is quadruple what it was when I was banned.  I’m on several TV stations in the West and lots of websites repost my work.  I’m doing just fine without Facebook and Twitter, and I’m just getting started.

Naomi Wolf is not the only liberal to apologize to conservatives, recently.  Others apostatizing from the Democrat faith include a former Reuters editor who admitted he was misled on climate change.  “The idea climate change threatens the health, safety and economic well-being of people worldwide is an assertion, not a fact,” he wrote.   Moreover, there is no scientific consensus CO2 is to blame for the planet’s warming in the last 10,000 years.  Scientists he asked backed away from making any such claim.

Then there’s the abortion doctor and the abortion clinic business developer who both confessed recently they knew abortion was the taking of innocent human life.  The abortionist confessed to murdering countless children, but pro-life outreach changed the abortionist’s mind.  For his part, the developer is now pro-life and fighting to end abortion.

For a Democrat mom in Pennsylvania, it was the Democrats’ appalling COVID lockdowns leading to learning loss in school that led her away from the Democrat Party.  A New York City councilman switched to the Republican Party because the Democrats are too soft on crime and making everyone unsafe.  For another former liberal, it wasn’t any one thing.  It was a 30-year process of watching the Left’s pronouncements not match up with reality, helped along by the insufferable “arrogance and snobbery” of Leftist elites.  The #WalkAway movement of former Democrats from a few years ago, is still going strong.  Their testimonies contain all kinds of reasons to leave the Democrat fold.

But my favorite apostasy story is the young woman who told me some years ago that, for her, it was the blue dress – Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office.   Like I said, it only takes minutes to sweep the fairy dust off people and get them to realize the Democrats have a lot to be sorry about and apologize for.

Great news from Washington about American families thumbnail

Great news from Washington about American families

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities

There is hope for the United States Congress.


It had to happen.

At long last, there is a group in the United States Congress devoted exclusively to the welfare of the American family.

On Tuesday, March 7, Representatives Mary Miller of IllinoisDiana Harshbarger of Tennessee, and Brian Babin of Texas officially launched the Congressional Family Caucus.

This is an extraordinary event of momentous importance that will have an impact for years to come. It must. The American family has been battered by a callous and intrusive runaway government collaborating with a corrupt woke corporate culture that values flesh-and-blood human beings solely for their economic utility.

While the Big Government-Big Business axis thrives, the average citizen and their families, the bedrock of America, are taking it on the chin. That must change. The historic March 7 announcement is a step in that direction.

The press release announcing formation of the Congressional Family Caucus speaks for itself. Here it is, exactly as released, bold font and all:

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-IL) will be joined by Reps. Diana Harshbarger (R-TN) and Brian Babin (R-TX) in launching the Congressional Family Caucus.

The Congressional Family Caucus will serve to defend the natural family from attempts by the radical left to erode this core foundation of our society. Reps. Miller, Harshbarger, and Babin will initiate legislation favorable to American families and discuss the effects major legislation will have on the family.

“For years, we have witnessed a concerted effort by activists on the Left to abolish the natural family,” Miller said. “Today, I am launching the Congressional Family Caucus because I believe we have a moral obligation as servant representatives to protect and conserve the family. The natural family, a man and a woman committed for life to each other and to their children, is essential for a nation to prosper because the family is the root of self-government, service, community, and personal responsibility. I am honored to be joined by my co-chairs, Representatives Diana Harshbarger of Tennessee and Brian Babin of Texas, in our efforts to protect the family.”

Congresswoman Miller spoke on the House Floor on the creation of the Congressional Family Caucus. You can view her here.

Co-Chairs Reps. Diana Harshbarger and Brian Babin released the following statements on the launch of the Congressional Family Caucus:

“As you look around and take inventory of the struggles in our nation, the vast majority can be traced back to the demise of the family unit,” said Congresswoman Harshbarger. “Children can have no greater inheritance than the godly legacy left to them by their parents. I am proud to co-found the Congressional Family Caucus to promote policies that support and strengthen families.”

“The natural family, ordained by God, is the foundation upon which our country was built,” said Congressman Babin. “The Congressional Family Caucus will promote policies that are God-driven and family-focused. Our goal is to conserve and protect American families and ensure they prosper for years to come.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Why do we need the Congressional Family Caucus? For generations the American family has been under all-out attack. Debased entertainment, a debilitating social welfare system, callous manipulation by the welfare-warfare state (including Big Tech), onerous taxation, and the mainstreaming of depravity and vulgarity are assault weapons in the anti-family arsenal. Is this intentional? Conspiracy? Doesn’t matter. The fact is that traditional family values have massive support but little representation in Washington where the laws are made. So there needs to be an organized effort within the corridors of power to remind politicians that there is more to serving their constituents than shilling for big business.

As a former Capitol Hill staffer and lobbyist, I’ve seen it up close and personal. The sad reality is that we don’t have a representative government of the people but rather a government of special interests. Time and again well-funded lobbies get what they want irrespective of election results.

In an earlier piece I stated:

The family has more of a stake in society than any racial, ethnic, business, professional or educational lobby. Families are the building blocks of society upon which the prosperity and well-being of all else depends. You can’t fool Mother Nature.

So there needs to be a family lobby, a coalition of cooperating public interest groups, NGOs and the like that don’t let up fighting for family-friendly legislation. In American politics the squeaky wheel gets the grease. All the gargantuan special interests have lobbies. Look at how well Big Tech, Big Pharma, the constellation of well-funded so-called “social justice” organizations and defense contractors make out.

Now, at long last, there is a Congressional Family Caucus in the House of Representatives. Let’s get something going in the US Senate as well.

I would indeed be remiss not to give thanks and a tip of the hat to the American Family Project for their diligent efforts to help bring this about. (Full disclosure: yours truly serves on the American Family Project Board of Directors.) Long hours pounding the pavement and forging connections to educate public officials about the grievous challenges facing American families have paid off. Again, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Thank you, Representatives Miller, Harshbarger, and Babin for your courage in stepping up with this bold initiative. Through the years I’ve seen a good number of idealistic, well-intentioned souls arrive in Congress only to be coopted by the system or become pathologically fixated on their public image to the point that they truckle – go along to get along – rather than do anything to incur the wrath of malevolent woke media types. It takes guts to stick up for the traditional American family these days.

The next time you hear that we must have compassion for vandalous rioters that destroy our public spaces, that immigration is great for the economy, that globalism is the wave of the future, that we must spend billions on faraway wars that have nothing to do with our national security, and that discredited government agencies are only trying to protect us, take stock and think of the family, the interests of which the ruling oligarchy has subordinated to greed.

The future of our civilization depends on the well-being of the family.

NSW Premier puts families at centre of election pitch thumbnail

NSW Premier puts families at centre of election pitch

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities

This will be the first policy initiative of its kind in Australia.

The New South Wales state election is just around the corner and the major parties are putting forward their final pitches to the voters.

Last weekend the Liberal party, currently in government and led by Premier Dominic Perrottet, launched its big family-friendly policy, the New South Wales Kids Future Fund. The policy is based on a similar Canadian initiative.

It was a notable announcement — the first policy of its kind in Australia. The ABC explained the policy this way:

If re-elected on March 25, the Coalition has promised to create savings funds for every child and kick in the first A$400.

Every year the child’s family puts another $400 in, the government will match it.

The earnings are not taxed and once the child turns 18, they can withdraw the money but they must use it on education or housing.

Perrottet touts the long-term thinking behind the policy, saying it will help a new generation “build the foundations of financial security so they are ready for success in the NSW of tomorrow”.

The Labor opposition says the policy will only help wealthy families and will do nothing to help the cost of living crisis hitting families right now.

Indeed, much of the criticism the policy has attracted is focused on the same concern – that poorer families don’t have the spare cash to put into an account for the future and wealthy families too, leaving the poorer kids even further behind when they turn 18 compared to their more affluent counterparts.

While the NSW government has proposed a mechanism for less well-off families to still get $200 each year into their child’s account based on their eligibility for certain government support, the criticism of the policy is not unreasonable.

After all, few policies that involve direct payments to families won’t benefit some families over others. And more money that goes directly to the kids is less money going into the pockets of education bureaucrats and social service NGOs.

Further, policy that incentivises parents to find a way to think less short-term and invest in their kid’s long-term future should be encouraged. One of the great underreported social and economic causes of inequality is family breakdown. It dilutes wealth, creates more demand for housing, destabilises the day to day life of the kids affected and can often be a symptom of adults putting their needs before their kids.

Not that the Perrottet proposal is about family breakdown, but a bit of a nudge towards putting kids first over the long term is not a bad thing. And if, as a result, it makes parents think a bit more carefully about how they invest in their kids’ futures, that’s even better.

‘Non-Binary Climate Change Activist’: Tucker Carlson Mocks Left-Wingers In New Twitter Bio thumbnail

‘Non-Binary Climate Change Activist’: Tucker Carlson Mocks Left-Wingers In New Twitter Bio

By The Daily Caller

Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson mocked left-wing elitists and activists in his newly updated Twitter bio Tuesday.

Carlson’s updated Twitter page describes him as a “non-binary climate change activist of color,” as well as a “visionary tech founder” and “CNBC market analyst,” and an “informal” advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The description then ends with two transgender flag emojis.

“Non-binary climate change activist of color. Visionary tech founder. CNBC market analyst. Informal Zelensky advisor,” the account reads.

Tucker’s new Twitter bio… it’s amazing. Even better than the last one:

— Henry Rodgers (@henryrodgersdc) March 14, 2023

The Daily Caller co-founder originally mocked liberals on his Twitter account, which has 5.8 million followers, by labeling himself “fully vaccinated” and listing his pronouns as “They/Theirs” next to an emoji of the Ukrainian flag. He also described himself as an “Emmy-award-winning broadcast journalist, graduate of Harvard College & Yale Law School” and a “frequent visitor to the Aspen Inst.”

Carlson previously said he created the first social media mockery over his anger toward the House vote to send $40 million in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The most-watched Fox News anchor has repeatedly criticized Congress and President Joe Biden’s administration for aiding Ukraine and Zelensky as the U.S.-Mexico border remains in an ongoing crisis.

“That Ukraine vote made me so mad, I’m desperate to amuse myself,” he said in May.

‘Murder!’: Jane Fonda’s Homicidal Call to Action Against Pro-Lifers thumbnail

‘Murder!’: Jane Fonda’s Homicidal Call to Action Against Pro-Lifers

By Family Research Council

Friday morning, on the infamously progressive talk show “The View,” 85-year-old actress Jane Fonda made a disturbing recommendation for dealing with pro-lifers: murder. The remarks came amid a conversation regarding Fonda’s pro-abortion activism, particularly in the months following the Dobbs Supreme Court decision last June. As hosts Sonny Hostin and Joy Behar simpered sweet nothings about Fonda winning a Nobel Prize, the conversation quickly turned awkward when Behar asked Fonda how to extend pro-abortion activism beyond merely marching and protesting.

“Well, I’ve thought of murder,” Fonda asserted, repeating the word “murder” as the women gathered around her laughed uncomfortably.

Despite the audience’s amusement and assurances from the show’s hosts that the actress was simply joking, viewers were left to wonder — does Fonda really believe that advocating for life in the womb is justification for someone to be murdered? And in a culture where progressives are keener than ever to claim that mere words can be violence, how can Fonda get away with literally suggesting murder?

Perhaps Fonda’s comments wouldn’t hit home for pro-lifers so acutely were it not for the barrage of terrorism that the pro-life community has suffered in the last year. Family Research Council has tracked over 125 instances of pro-abortion violence against pro-life pregnancy resource centers, churches, and individuals in the past year; just this week, a pregnancy resource center in Minneapolis was vandalized with the same familiar message that pro-lifers have learned to expect: “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”

In many instances, pro-abortion harassment has gone far beyond vandalism and threats. A CompassCare pro-life pregnancy resource center in Buffalo, New York was firebombed in June of 2022; the attack caused $500,000 in damages and forced the center to spend the next 52 days rebuilding. Despite the violence already occurring against these charity centers, radical abortion lover Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) accused pregnancy resource centers of “torturing” women and called for their doors to be closed — a move that, were the partisan tables turned, would certainly have been characterized as an incitement of violence.

In light of Fonda’s incurable enthusiasm to do harm to those who advocate for the life of the unborn, it’s important to consider her personal background on the issue. Fonda’s mother, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and eventually died by suicide, aborted nine of Jane’s older siblings before finally giving birth to her. Both Fonda and her mother suffered sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse. While there is certainly zero excuse for her abortion advocacy, much less her calls for violence against pro-lifers, understanding Fonda’s background helps paint a fuller picture of why she is so desperate to preserve social acceptance and celebration of abortion as a moral good rather than as the affront to human dignity that it truly is.

Just last week, conservative pundit Michael Knowles was accused of advocating genocide against people who identify as transgender because of a statement he made during a speech at CPAC. Even White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre slanderously accused Knowles of calling for the “eradication of transgender people.”

What Knowles actually said was, “For the good of society and especially for the good of the poor people who have fallen prey to this confusion, transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely, the whole preposterous ideology — at every level.”

While Knowles’s circumstances are more akin to misrepresentation, given that he never actually proposed violence against human beings, the incident still serves to prove a significant cultural point: progressives can’t have it both ways. Either words must be chosen with extreme delicacy and sensitivity because they will be construed as calls to violence — or not. And, if calls for political violence against other human beings are something to be condemned, then they must be universally condemned — even when the call is coming from inside the house.

A final (and significant) point to consider is that, even when pro-abortion advocates are not calling for murder against born people, they are nevertheless fighting desperately to perpetuate the shedding of innocent blood. Every “successful” abortion ends the life of a unique, unrepeatable human being. There can be no peaceful or nonviolent support of abortion, because to support abortion is inherently a promotion of violence.

Thankfully, given what the pro-life movement has demonstrated the willingness to withstand in the last year for the sake of protecting unborn children, it’s clear that the thoughtless snark of a Hollywood celebrity will do little to deter pro-life activism.

LOL: Jean-Pierre Says Tucker Carlson Doesn’t Believe in ‘Truth’

By Discover The Networks

Thursday on MSNBC’s Alex Wagner Tonight, White House press propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre said that Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s coverage of video footage from the January 6, 2021 chaos at the U.S. Capitol shows he does not believe in “truth.”

Asked if the White House considers Fox News to be a news organization (a question designed to delegitimize the only cable news outlet that doesn’t run interference for the Biden administration), Jean-Pierre replied, “So, I’ll say this, when you look at the depositions that have been out there recently, it even states from Fox News leadership, they do not see Tucker Carlson’s show as news or even truthful. That is coming from the Fox leadership. That’s not coming from me. That’s coming from them. And also would quote, paraphrase here, with the chief of Capital police said. He said when you watch Tucker Carlson as it relates to January 6, it is misleading. It is misinformation with the conclusion of what happened on January 6, the attacks that happened.”

False, every word. Misinformation is what the diversity hire Jean-Pierre traffics in.

She added, “As you saw from the president’s statement, 140 officers were injured, nearly 140 officers were injured on that day. It was an attack on democracy. It was an attack on our Constitution, and you cannot whitewash that. Tucker Carlson cannot whitewash that. Anyone who doesn’t see with their own eyes what occurred cannot whitewash that. And so, the president’s going to stand with the police officers. He’s going to stand for truth. And clearly, that is not what Tucker Carlson believes in.”

What the American people have seen with their own eyes is footage that the White House didn’t want them to see — footage that puts their narrative about an “insurrection” to the lie.

The ‘Trans’-Fem Debate: The National Version of ‘My Wife is Always Right’ thumbnail

The ‘Trans’-Fem Debate: The National Version of ‘My Wife is Always Right’

By Selwyn Duke

“A pox on both their houses,” we may say, when wishing both sides in a contest could lose. I surely feel this way, too, with the “transgender” vs. feminist debate over men masquerading as female entering women’s sports and private spaces.

Oh, I don’t fence-sit. Not only have I likely written more pieces on preposterous “transgenderism” than most any other commentator, but I even reject the term and coined a more accurate characterization of the phenomenon — the MUSS (Made-up Sexual Status) agenda. Yet I also know this:

While leftists may call that agenda a men’s-rights-movement monster, the foundation for it absolutely was laid by feminists.

You won’t hear this much in a land so “patriarchal” that a common refrain is “My wife is always right.” Of course, the poor saps thus confessing don’t really mean their wives are infallible and are actually always right; they mean the missus will never, ever admit being wrong.

The sexes have different characteristic weaknesses, with lust being one of men’s. One of women’s involves greater difficulty admitting error. Also said is that it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, and, boy, have feminists ever done a 180 on sex differences.

That is, MUSS activists have been accused, understandably, of trying to “erase women.” Yet conveniently forgotten is that theirs wasn’t the first movement to attempt such.

Feminism was.

Up until about last Thursday (speaking metaphorically), and far from today’s dominant “gender identity” theory, feminists upheld and socially enforced an outgrowth of “gender neutrality” theory: that the sexes are the same except for the superficial physical differences and, therefore, raising them identically ensures they’ll end up identical in inclination and, even, the devout believers insisted, in abilities.

This sameness-of-the-sexes dogma (SSD) was its day’s wokeness, enforced with a pink fist inside an iron glove. An example: Self-professed feminist academic and lesbian Camille Paglia once mentioned that fellow feminists would corner her on college campuses in the ’70s and, glaring, insist that hormones didn’t exist and that, even if they did, they couldn’t possibly influence behavior.

SSD was applied to sports, too. A 2008 article titled “Women and men in sports: Separate is not equal,” whose feminist authors ask “Why is gender segregation in sports normal?” is representative. Yet certain feminists (some of whom were male, mind you) were even more radical. Two exercise physiologists predicted decades ago, after analyzing the sexes’ world records’ progression, that women would overtake men in track and field by the late ’90s. (In reality, the intersex performance gap actually widened again that decade owing to better performance-enhancing-drug testing.)

In a nutshell, feminist dogma held that men surpassed women athletically only because they’d been developing their abilities longer; allowing women to tap their potential would ensure parity.

SSD was convenient: Since belief in inherent sex differences could be used to justify different sex roles and male-only domains (e.g., police), it had to be deep-sixed. Yet, tangled web woven, doing so paved the way for today’s MUSS agenda. How?

First, feminists spent decades enforcing the proposition that “the sexes are the same except for the superficial physical differences.” Then the MUSS crew came along with a corollary:

Changing the superficial physical differences can make you the opposite sex.

Of course, MUSS activists have gone beyond even this, insisting now that identity is reality. The feminists, however, gave them the launch pad. It’s A leading to B — proposition and corollary.

Thus is it tragically comical seeing feminists such as Kara Dansky appear on Tucker Carlson’s show and call the MUSS phenomenon “men’s rights movement” handiwork and “The New Misogyny.” At age 49 (soon), Dansky is old enough to remember feminist SSD advocacy but, hey, none of this is about principle — and feminists will never, ever admit their error.

Yet her feelings are fathomable. By entering and sometimes dominating females’ sports, MUSS males have accomplished something that eluded normal men: Given the feminists a painful object lesson in reality. When you can’t even beat perhaps gelded men taking female hormones, it’s hard complaining, as in the aforementioned 2008 article, about how this Patriarchal Culture™ claims a “female body is athletically inferior to a male body.”

But it’s always men’s fault, you see. The 2008 article also laments how in our male-dominated civilization, “the shadow of female frailty still shapes the environment of sports.” Female frailty, perish the thought!

Except that now, 15 years later, ex-runner and coach Lauren Fleshman complains at Time that having girls train athletically as boys do is causing them injuries and health problems the lads don’t suffer. And whose fault is this?

Fleshman writes that sports, as we know them, were “designed by men for men and boys” and “have never been designed around” the female body’s “developmental norms.” She’s on to us, alright. Do you fancy that sports evolved organically because people wanted to have fun and learn who was stronger, faster and “better”? Ha! No, they were “designed,” beginning millennia ago in ancient Greece, by a patriarchy so clever and nefarious that it purposely made athletics incompatible with the female body.

This said, I seem to remember it being feminists who wanted Title IX, girls not only playing sports but doing so competitively, and who said the lasses could do anything boys could — and maybe better. But why argue? “My wife is always right.”

It’s ironic, though: Disputing SSD decades ago — by, let’s say, mentioning male athletic advantages and that women can’t compete with men — made you a sexist or misogynist who must be silenced via social pressure and career-destruction threats. Now feminists will write articles, produce videos, appear on shows and even before government bodies talking about a plethora of “immutable” male athletic advantages such as the benefits of testosterone, increased muscle mass, greater VO2 max, and bone structure differences (e.g., narrower pelvises). Imagine that, feminists went from not knowing in the ’70s if hormones existed to being able to write a physiology textbook. Those MUSS men sure can deliver an education.

And today, saying there’s no reason women can’t compete with men athletically renders you, again, a sexist or misogynist who should be canceled. After all, females deserve “their own sports and private spaces.”

So does this mean men get theirs back? Will institutions such as the Citadel and Virginia Military Institute and once-male-only clubs again become XY exclusive? Will boys’ sports teams now be able to reject a girl without possibly being dragged through the mud and into court? Of course not.

SSD is a problem now that it’s enabling males to enter females’ domain. But it was gospel when it enabled females to enter males’ domain.

For the record, the MUSS agenda should be eradicated, but doing so while leaving feminism intact is a half measure. Both misbegotten forces should be rent root and branch.

I won’t hold my breath waiting, however, for conservative men to stop conserving yesterdays’ leftists’ victories, such as feminism. People have short memories, it’s in fellows’ nature to play the white knight, and then, don’t forget:

My wife is always right.

A Global Spy Ring: Putin-Xi-Obama-Biden-J6 Show Trial thumbnail

A Global Spy Ring: Putin-Xi-Obama-Biden-J6 Show Trial

By Simona Pipko

The summer of 2022 had been politically full with the presentation of the January 6th Committee and its nine Hearings by the Democrat House of Representative. The Dem claimed it was bigger than the attacks on 9/11, while Republicans called it “Show Trails” Soviet style. The latter was my subject, and I couldn’t stay silent. I have written a column titled: Democrats’ J6 ‘Show Trial’ in Washington, D.C. Isn’t This Treason? July 6, 2022. The column has revealed historical truth not known to the vast majority of the American people…

Today, in 2023 we have complete chaos in Biden’s America. Official statistics show that 4-5 million illegal migrants are crossing our borders, violating the law and our sovereignty. This is also my subject, because there are no Mexican Cartels, those are the Russian Cartels established by Stalin in 1950-1960s in Mexico. This fact is also unknown to Americans. Remember, Russia is a terrorist state, spreading violence by all possible ways, including the MS-13 gangs. Read about Stalin’s participation in the Spanish Civil War and the fate of thousands of Spanish children indoctrinated by the KGB and sent to Mexico and Central America twenty years later. We are now fighting them…

My third subject is Soviet Socialism, which I called Soviet fascism. To grasp the catastrophic chaos in the Biden America, people should know the Socialist modus operandi: lies, deception, fabrication, and fraud. As a matter of fact, the Dem are implementing Socialism in America and using that modus operandi for the last 3-4 decades. The Dem leadership is doing just that: lying, deceiving and defrauding you. Look at demented Joe Biden, he is deceiving you every day by reading on the prompter what his staff, the Obama work holders, has composed for him. His administration deceives you with great success. There are two Red Flags on the U.S. economy: the current collapse of the American bank and Biden’s trillion-dollar project is typical Soviet Socialism, an attempt to bankrupt the American Constitutional republic. Reading the above mentioned my column you will get it.

Democrats’ J6 ‘Show Trial’ in Washington, D.C. Isn’t This Treason?

The term Show Trial came to the world from Russia, Stalinist Soviet Russia. It was a time when I had lived in Russia. The term is very familiar to me, because I am a former Soviet defense attorney and have practiced law for twenty-five years in Soviet Russia. The time when the term was born is a very important one: the method to keep total control and power over the population. Stalin was building a political system of Soviet Socialism by weaponizing the court system and law enforcement against the people. The term Show Trial illustrates an immoral embodiment of the judicial system when criminals charged the dissidents with the help of various punitive agencies. Show Trials and Purges worked to annihilate millions of innocent people under Stalin in the 1930-1940s …

The term Show Trial had a long life as a symbol of Socialism, I participated in hundreds of Show Trials in the 1960-1970s. The vast majority of people still called them Show Trials, but in the Russian court system the term was transformed to visiting sessions of the court or demonstration sessions of the court. I have never thought to hear and see something similar in America. Alas, I did. I was stunned, watching testimony of Ms. Hutchinson in the House select committee’s investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on Capitol Hill. She presented herself as an omnipresent aide of the chief of staff Mr. Meadow, as one of the most forceful and compelling aides to testify about former President Donald J. Trump. She definitely has an ambition of a career in government, like so many others in Washington. Her testimony was very suspicious to me…  Why? Because she was helping the Committee to arrange a predetermined outcome—to convict a former President Trump… It was a typical Show Trial, Soviet style…

On Twitter, Ms. Hutchinson was compared to John Dean, the former White House counsel to President Richard M. Nixon, whose public hearing testimony proved pivotal in describing his role in the Watergate cover-up. Mr. Dean said. “She was able to fill in the information from her observations instantly.” They are a very interesting couple. Some years ago I expressed my opinion about the Watergate where Hillary played first violin as Nixon’s accuser. Knowing Stalinist KGB Mafia/Army, I think that we have a quadruple Watergate today: both had been manufactured by the KGB Mafia/Army… I would say that somebody recently approached Hutchinson and… she has changed her mind. You saw it on 6/28/22. My personal opinion based on my knowledge and on the information presented by the article Cassidy Hutchinson Stuns With Testimony About Trump in Jan. 6, June 28, 2022, by Maggie Haberman

So, Ms. Hutchinson was supposed to follow Trump in Florida and she has testified four times: “Hutchinson was supposed to go work for Mr. Trump during his post-presidency in Florida, but the plan was abruptly dropped before she was to join. In the past several months, she has testified under subpoena four times before the committee, behind closed doors.”

Beyond hearsay, my next question will be: Why does bombshell come so late only in her fourth testimony? The logical answer is because Ms. Hutchinson has shortly changed her lawyer and changed her mind. The next question will be: who did recommend her another lawyer? Did the person connect to the Committee? If yes, what was the person’s name? I am asking those questions, because I know how all of that has been done, I know the KGB Mafia/Army and its strategy, tactics, and dirty tricks to implement Socialism and Green policy in America. I believe that the Dems in consent with the KGB Mafia/Army had planned to organize violence on January 6, 2021: they didn’t have an issue to fight Republicans in the midterm election, the Republican violence would supposedly give them the issue.

The KGB Mafia/Army Operations in Washington D.C.

Nobody will ask my questions in the current Committee, because it is one-party anti-Trump cabal with no balance. You will be surprised, but the members of the Committee are using the same strategy, tactics, and violated ethics and traditional rules of the Congress. Pelosi was responsible for the security in the Capitol Hill, but you won’t see her and the Mayor of D.C. testifying under the Oath there—they are out of the picture for a reason. Allen West was finding seventy Socialists in the Congress. Today we have the entire Democrat’s leadership of Socialist Charlatans in cahoots with the KGB Mafia/Army building Socialism in America for decades. Socialist Charlatans act in many different levels of our nation: in the streets, the White House, and Congress…  Watch them!!! They are fighting our Constitutional republic…

I have been writing about Socialist Revolution in America and the role of the KGB Mafia/Army in that revolution for decades, publishing a book: Socialist Revolution in America XLIBRIS, 2021. Yet, America still doesn’t know the KGB Chairman Andropov’s design to simultaneously infiltrate the media and the entire American Intelligence and Security apparatus… As a result the entire paradigm in America has been changing drastically. The recent poll shows 88% of people think that we are on the wrong track. They are right: Biden’s team is a national security risk, it implements Soviet Socialism in America with the help of Obama’s holdovers and the KGB Mafia/Army. Thousands of Socialist Charlatans, some with mental illness, destroy the American Constitutional republic from within… Read an updated and republished in 2022 my book: What is Happening to America? The Hidden Truth of Global Destruction Part III.

Pay attention to the January 6th Committee, a one-party anti-Trump haters. They intend to criminalize the GOP and do that a-la Stalin by Demonizing the 45th President, a successful capitalist, who symbolized a unique success of the American Constitutional republic, an exceptional republic, designed and left to us by our Founding Fathers. That design gives total power and control to We The People. But the Dems manage quite successfully their activities to cover-up their past: Demonizing the 45th President is a convenient way to hide their intent to demolish the American Political system and implement Socialism. It also helped them to cover-up the crime the Democrat leadership had committed by colluding with Russian Intel for decades, following Stalin’s postulate… Read my books about Bill Clinton and Barack Obama…

Biden as a leader of the Democrat Party, to be precise, Biden’s secretive team have the same agenda. You can understand their complicated goal only through knowledge of Russia and her Intelligence and Security apparatus. Joe Rogan should read my books and columns to learn who divides our country. It is complicated. It took me thirty years to warn you about: that is now coming. I can help you. Three of my columns explain the dramatic changes happening in the heart of Biden’s cabal-team to save the skin of the Democrat Party by using the Russian war on Ukraine. These three columns were written by me on February 21, 28, and April 4, 2022. You can read them and other columns for free by clicking here.

You also should know that Biden, as a point man for Obama in Ukraine, had collaborated with Putin since 2013-2014. I was reporting about that in my columns on Ukraine. Remember that Biden offered President Zelenkyy to bring him to the U.S. in the beginning of the war. He didn’t believe in Ukraine’s victory and didn’t care a bit about its people. His team is lying and deceiving Americans the same way they are deceiving the Ukrainian people. To deceive and confuse us, they will play negative and positive theatrical performances lying and entertaining. What Biden reads every day is prepared for him by Putin’s cabal-team. Remember Socialist Modus Operandi—lies, deceit, and fraud. Watch Biden’s secretive-team and you will find all three in their daily activities. Biden’s secretive team was monitoring my computer and learning a possible way to save the Democrat Party for the crime they had committed for decades. They changed their mind by reading my columns and used the information to change their foreign policy and save their skin.

Fox News, celebrating Independence Day, presented a wonderful show of American History under the title: Fighting America’s Enemies on June 2, 22. Those were incredible stories about Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and others, their bravery, love for the county and our American Constitution. President Biden is the opposite of them: he is fighting the U.S. Supreme Court and using the enemy to save his party. We have never experienced the chaos we have today. Look at our country: open borders, surging violence, killings, vandalism, robbery, and arson have a common denominator in America—the wrong and long-range policy of the so-called Democrat Party. Alas, we still don’t know Russia and her Intel to uncover the puzzle of Stalinist Socialism in America and Putin is destroying us with impunity…

Although it is painful to admit, the truth must be known: Ukraine cannot sustain a protracted war against Russia without International help. There are many reasons why, but using this column, I’ll tell you the major ones: War in Ukraine is a part of a global war waged by Socialist/Communist forces against Western civilization and American Capitalism for the last hundred years. Putin is a devoted disciple of Stalin/Andropov, who continued this war by widening a Global Spy Ring in the 21st century. Without knowledge of Russia we can’t successfully fight China. Targeting national resources, Russia colonized Africa in the 20th century, China is colonizing South America today. These two are connected by the umbilical cord of the ideology. Stalin had created the same Intelligence apparatus in Russia and China. He married Communist ideology with Islam—all Islamic terrorism was designed by the Russian KGB Mafia/Army, including the attacks on 9/11. To learn Stalinism read my books, especially: The Russian Factor: From Cold War to Global Terrorism XLIBRIS, 2006.

America Mirrors the Russian Socialist Revolution

Witnessing what is going on in the year 2022 America, had reminded me of the predicament in 1917 Russia. Ayn Rand called the Russian Socialist Revolution a coup d’état. She was right. Let me tell you how it was happening. Duma like today was the Russian Parliament in St. Petersburg. Russia was at WWI and using the people’s frustration of the war, Bolshevik’s faction in Duma planned the revolution. They were designed to act from two different locations: the Duma and the streets. An army of Bolshevik’s agitators had been working within the Russian Army to demoralize the soldiers, agitating them to kill their Officers, go home and join the anti-war demonstrations on the streets, manifested themselves against the war. The unspeakable killings had begun in the city. The Bolshevik’s agitators had entered Moscow and spread to other cities with the same plans—demonstrations and killings inundate Russia …

Meanwhile, Bolshevik’s faction in Duma has begun a fight against the Provisional Government of the Russian Republic led by Alexander Kerensky. The Russian Republic lasted three months, Bolshevik’s faction was very successful and Alexander Kerensky ran from St. Petersburg in a women’s dress. There is no coincidence that I am writing about Socialist Revolution in America using the term Socialist Charlatans constantly. I use the term because I know Russian history: from the beginning of the Russian Socialist Revolution there was born Socialist Modus Operandi: lies, deceit, and fraud. That exact Modus Operandi has been used by Bolshevik’s faction against the Russian Republic and its leader in Duma Alexander Kerensky. You know the result. I am leaving for you to make the conclusion…

When I am writing this line, the TV is telling the country about the tragic shooting in the parade in Chicago. The shooting from the roof hit me immediately, it is the method in the Russian military protocol. The Russian KGB was often using this method for liquidating-assassinating the opposition’s leaders that exact way during the demonstrations in Russia. This was the act of terrorism and I smelled the Russian connection with either George Soros, Bernie Sanders or with BLM, Antifa, or other criminal groups of Socialist Charlatans in America. The mass-shooting will never end, until we learn the Russian history and Stalinist Intelligence and Security Apparatus, which is destroying our republic from within. It is shocking; President Biden spent more time battling the U.S. Supreme Court then expressed outrage at the mass-shooting in the parade celebrating the Fourth in Chicago, let alone the nuclear deal with our enemy Iran…

I have to repeat again: knowledge of Russia and her Intelligence and Security Apparatus is a Must. This knowledge will reveal the foreign invasion on our Southern border organized by Putin, the way he has managed the Muslim Invasion to Europe in 2015, explained by me in my several columns. The open season on the police officers started under Obama will continue under Biden. In short: All America’s problems derived from decades of collusion between Russia and the Democrat Party. Those crimes can be stopped only by knowledgeable FBI Director, we don’t have one. Christopher Wray is the person responsible for current crises in America and the world, he doesn’t know Russian History and its State Security Apparatus…

My fellow Americans!

Knowledge is power! We can’t fail, our children and grandchildren will never forgive us! Educating yourself, knowledge, courage and perseverance can save America the Beautiful.

It is now or never!

Freedom’s torch is yours!

The Putin Biden KGB Border Plot – Dr. Rich Swier says:

October 17, 2022 at 2:43 PM

[…] There is another “Red Flag” for the Biden presidency—the Iranian Deal. I was writing about and introducing you to the term “Axis of Evil” for decades. It was created under the Russian umbrella to wage the war against Western civilization in the 20th century by Stalin. You are watching the continuation of this war by Putin and Chairman Xi Jinpin, both united by the ideology and agenda left to them by Comrade Stalin: One World Socialist Government under Russia’s rule.  Look at the “Axis of Evil” countries: North Korea, China, Belarus, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and a few on the way…This is a result. The Iranian Deal by Joe Biden is an attempt to join the group instead of fighting their Socialist agenda “under the Russian umbrella.” Isn’t This Treason? […]

‘Misogyny’: 47 Biological Males Allowed in Women’s Prisons in California thumbnail

‘Misogyny’: 47 Biological Males Allowed in Women’s Prisons in California

By Family Research Council

On Wednesday, The Post Millennial reported that 47 biological males who identify as transgender have been allowed entry into women’s prisons in California since the state’s Transgender Respect, Agency and Dignity Act (SB-132) went into effect in 2021. Experts are decrying the policy, pointing to the dangers posed to women’s safety and privacy.

Citing data from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) website, the story notes that “as of Feb. 26, 2023, 349 people housed in male institutions have requested to be housed in a female institution. 47 were approved for transfer, 21 were denied, and 35 changed their minds. The remaining requests are being reviewed.”

Amanda Stulman, director of the U.S. chapter of the advocacy organization Keep Prisons Single Sex, pointed to the unique dangers that female inmates face as a result of California’s SB-132.

“Keep Prisons Single Sex remains horrified that the transfer of criminal men into women’s prison in California has continued,” she told The Washington Stand. “The impact of a law such as SB-132 should have been obvious when it was under consideration. Now that the law has been in place for over two years, California is able to see its impact: As of 2022, over 33% of the men seeking to transfer under this law under the guise of ‘gender identity’ are registered sex offenders. Over a quarter have been convicted of a sex offense. These are substantially higher percentages than the general prison population.”

Stulman went on to highlight additional reports coming out of the California prison system since the law’s implementation.

“There have been allegations of pregnancies and sexual assaults, of the introduction of condoms and other birth control and information about options in the event of pregnancy,” she said. “Men who have been moved under this law include murderers and sexual offenders. California needs to admit this law was a mistake and walk it back.”

Instances of trans-identifying men assaulting women in female prisons have occurred as recently as last April, when a biological male who identified as female was sentenced to seven years in prison after he was convicted of raping a female inmate in the women’s section of the jail on Rikers Island in New York.

The problem does not appear to be contained to the United States. The Times in the U.K. recently reported that seven sexual assaults have occurred in women’s prisons by transgender-identifying convicts, and that trans-identifying males are “five times more likely to carry out sex attacks on inmates at women’s jails than other prisoners are,” according to official figures.

Male criminals convicted of sexual crimes are also being permitted into women’s prisons in Canada. On Wednesday, The Post Millennial reported that a male convicted sex offender who raped a 13-year-old girl and who was “classified as a dangerous offender” has been transferred to a women’s prison in Ontario after identifying as trans. This latest instance is just one of multiple examples of biological males convicted of sexual crimes being allowed into women’s prisons in Canada since 2017.

Dr. Jennifer Bauwens, the director of the Center for Family Studies at Family Research Council, was candid in her assessment of California’s controversial prison policy.

“The word that comes to mind is ‘misogyny,’” she told The Washington Stand. “That’s actually what this is about: the hatred of women instead of the protection of women in prison. Some people could write off this population just because they’ve committed crimes and [say] they’re not deserving of protection — I totally disagree with that. But I think this is just another example of a disregard for women and a preference for the desires of men. Whether people are aware of that at a conscious level or not, that’s what is manifesting.”

Bauwens, who formerly worked as a clinician providing trauma-focused treatment and has studied the effects of trauma, pointed out how the policy will be particularly detrimental to women prisoners.

“This is an old study, but it still speaks to who is in a women’s prison,” she noted. “‘One key finding from this research is that incarcerated women are more likely to report extensive histories of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse—between 77 and 90%.’ … And the prevalence rates of childhood abuse [are] much higher among incarcerated women in comparison to the general population. This study was specifically looking at the California prison population.”

“[Women prisoners] are more susceptible to committing crimes based on abuse histories,” Bauwens continued. “When someone’s experienced childhood abuse, they’re more likely to act out in delinquent behaviors or abuse substances. … There have been recommendations from different public health researchers that have suggested that for female prisoners, trauma therapy should be a part of their time in prison because of this knowledge.”

She went on question the vetting process by which male inmates are allowed into female prisons.

“So you have all that going on in the background, and then you’re going to [add male convicted criminals]? We don’t know of the criteria for a transfer. What kind of background checks are they looking at? What’s the reason that they’re in prison in the first place, and is that considered? Have they had a violent or sexual offense? Does that sideline them from transfer? I don’t think so, based on previous reporting.”

“It speaks to the level of misogyny going on in this thought process,” Bauwens concluded. “There really is no thought about protecting women from further harm. Women should do their time for their crime, but not be victimized in the process.”

Hillary Clinton Calls for Increased Military Aid to Ukraine – Damn Good Reason Not To Do So thumbnail

Hillary Clinton Calls for Increased Military Aid to Ukraine – Damn Good Reason Not To Do So

By Royal A. Brown III

A damn good reason for not sending more $BILLIONS and warfighting equipment to Ukraine is that Hillary Clinton says we should send more including F-16 fighters and long range missiles (capable of hitting targets inside of Russia).

‘So Inspiring To Me’: Hillary Clinton Calls For Increased Military Aid For Ukraine


Former secretary of state, senator and first lady Hillary Clinton called for increased military aid to Ukraine in a “Morning Joe” interview excerpt that aired Friday on MSNBC.

Clinton was interviewed alongside Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska, who is in the United Arab Emirates, a country that has resisted Western sanctions and has continued to provide diplomatic and economic support to Moscow since Russia invaded Ukraine in Feb. 2022. Host Joe Scarborough asked Clinton about the Ukrainian people’s fight for values like democracy and freedom.

.@HillaryClinton: Ukraine’s war-fighting “is so inspiring to me. I hope it is inspiring to every American, particularly those in positions to make decisions. Because we have to continue, and I would even argue, increase the military support that we give the Ukrainians”

— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) March 10, 2023

“It’s so inspiring to me, and I hope it is inspiring to every American, particularly those in positions to make decisions,” Clinton responded. “Because we have to continue, and I would even argue increase, the military support that we give to the Ukrainians sooner.”

Scarborough interjected to ask whether or not that increased military support should include F-16 fighter jets.

“It includes air cover, it includes long-range missiles, it includes much more defensive systems, and not just from us but from our NATO allies and others,” Clinton replied.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has consistently requested F-16s from Western countries since the war began, but has not received any so far. President Joe Biden said recently that F-16s for Ukraine are off the table “for now,” and other officials have expressed that they don’t believe the jets are the most important aid Ukraine could be receiving for the current stage of the conflict.

Last weekend, two Ukrainian pilots were in Arizona to receive evaluations on F-16 simulators for potential future training purposes, defense officials said.

Clinton and Zelenska’s full interview with “Morning Joe” is set to air Monday morning.
