Reich Tells Democrat Senators to Give Kyrsten Sinema ‘the Backs of Their Hands’

By Discover The Networks

After the Democrat voting legislation was shot down in the U.S. Senate Wednesday night, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich took to Twitter to encourage Democrat senators to give obstructionist Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema “the backs of their hands.”

What are Democrats supposed to do to Sen. Sinema with “the backs of their hands,” @RBReich?

— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) January 20, 2022

“Tonight, Republican senators lined up to shake Kyrsten Sinema’s hand,” Reich tweeted. “Democratic senators should have given her the backs of their hands.”

Had a Republican politico tweeted this call for violence, the shrieking outrage from the left would have been deafening. But they never scold their own, especially since his violent misogyny was directed at a Democrat woman who did not fall in line with the radical left’s agenda. So instead, it was the leftist media silence that was deafening.

More independent-minded figures called Reich out for his message, however. Journalist Glenn Greenwald — no right-winger but a journalist courageous enough to criticize far-left lunacy — responded on Twitter, “What are Democrats supposed to do to Sen. Sinema with ‘the backs of their hands’, @RBReich?”

“Feminists sure got quiet on this one,” tweeted conservative Stephen L. Miller.

Reich is a prime example of the fact that just under their facade of tolerance, compassion, and inclusiveness, the left is full of violent hatred for their political opponents, and that includes fellow Democrats who vote from their conscience instead of a lust for power.

A former Secretary of Labor during the first term of President Bill Clinton, Robert Reich is currently the University Professor and Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy at Brandeis University. In 2001, Brandeis named Reich to co-direct an undergraduate program for “Social Justice and Policy” at the university’s Heller Graduate School. In announcing the new program, the university touted its devotion to the “problems of social equity” and its commitment to exploring the connection between “social values and practical policies.”

To this founding vision Reich has stayed true. With its focus on “the gap between richer and poorer citizens,” and its declared intention to determine what can be “done to reverse this trend,” the undergraduate course Reich teaches seems modeled more on a policy think tank that is bent on fashioning a political agenda, than on a university curriculum concerned with the pursuit of knowledge. Even the course’s title, “Wealth and Poverty,” hints at its political tilt, echoing as it does the zero-sum certitudes of leftist strategists like Reich, who perceive economic issues as a pitched Darwinian battle between rich and poor.

How to Save America — The Way Out thumbnail

How to Save America — The Way Out

By Imprimis Digest

The following is adapted from a speech delivered at a Hillsdale College reception in Overland Park, Kansas, on November 18, 2021.

Here are two questions pertinent to our times: (1) How would you reduce the greatest free republic in history to despotism in a short time? and (2) How would you stop that from happening? The answer to the first question has been provided in these last two disastrous years. The answer to the second has begun to emerge in recent months. Both are worthy of study.

Reducing a Great Republic to Despotism

To establish despotism in a nation like ours, you might begin, if you were smart, by building a bureaucracy of great complexity that commands a large percentage of the resources of the nation. You might give it rule-making powers, distributed across many agencies and centers inside the cabinet departments of government, as well as in 20 or more “independent” agencies—meaning independent of elected officials, and thus independent of the people.

This much has been done. It would require a doctoral thesis to list all the ways that rules are made in our federal government today, which would make for boring reading. The truth is that very few people not directly involved know how all this works. Although civics education is practically banned in America, most people still know what the Congress is and how its members are elected. But how many know how the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) came to be, under what authority it operates, and who is its head? Here is a clue: it is not Anthony Fauci.

Admittedly, this new kind of bureaucratic government would take—has taken—decades to erect, especially in the face of the resistance of the Constitution of the United States, which its very existence violates. But once it has been erected, things can happen very fast.

What, for example, if a new virus proliferates around the world? There have been procedures for dealing with such viruses for a long time. They begin with isolating the sick and protecting the vulnerable. But suddenly we have new procedures that attempt to isolate everybody. This is commanded by the CDC, an element of this bureaucratic structure, and by a maze of federal and state authorities, all of which see the benefit to themselves in getting involved. The result is that large sections of our economy were closed for months at a time, and citizens placed under the equivalent of house arrest. This has not happened before. The cost of it, and not just in monetary terms, is beyond calculation.

To set up a despotism capable of pulling this off you would need the media’s help. Those controlling the media today are trained in the same universities that invented the bureaucratic state, the same universities the senior bureaucrats attended. The media would need to be willing to suppress, for example, the fact that 50,000 doctors, scientists, and medical researchers signed the Great Barrington Declaration. That document reminds people that you cannot suppress a widely disseminated contagious virus through shutdowns and mass isolation, and that if you try, you will work immeasurable destruction of new kinds—unemployment, bankruptcy, depression, suicide, multiplying public debt, broken supply chains, and increases of other serious health problems. Some of the signatories to this Declaration come from the most distinguished universities in the world, but never mind: their views do not fit the narrative propagated by the powerful. They have been effectively cancelled, ignored by the media and suppressed by Big Tech.

You would need some help from business, too. As far as influence is concerned, “business” is dominated by large institutions—those comprising big business—whose leaders are also educated in the same universities that conceived bureaucratic government and trained the bureaucrats and media heads. This provides a ground of agreement between big business and the bureaucratic state. Anyway, agree or not, businesses are vulnerable to regulation, and to mitigate the risk of regulatory harm they play the game: they send lobbyists to Washington, make political contributions, hire armies of lawyers. If you are big enough to play the game, there are plenty of advantages to be won. If you are not big enough to play the game—well, in that case you are on your own.

Amidst the unprecedented lockdowns, imagine there comes an election, a time for the people to say if they approve of the new way of governing and of this vast, unprecedented intrusion into their lives. Then let us say that in several states the election rules and practices are altered by their executive branches—the people in charge of enforcing the law—on their own, without approval by their legislatures. Say this brazen violation of the separation of powers takes place in the name of the pandemic. One does not need to know what percentage of votes in the final tally were affected to see that this is fishy. No sensible person would place control of the election process in one party—any party—or in one branch—any branch—of the government, alone. In some crucial states, that was done.

Finally, to sustain this new kind of government, you would need to work on education. You might build a system of centralized influence, if not control, over every classroom in the land. You might require certification of the teachers with a bias toward the schools of education that train them in the approved way. These schools, poor but obedient cousins of the elite universities, are always up on the latest methods of “delivery” of instruction (we do not call it teaching anymore). These new methods do not require much actual knowledge, which can be supplied from above.

As far as content, you might set up a system of textbook adoption that guarantees to publishers a massive and captive market but requires them to submit proposed books to committees of “experts,” subject of course to political pressures. You might build a standard approved curriculum on the assumption that everything changes—even history, even principles. You might use this curriculum to lay the ground for holding everything old, everything previously thought high and noble, in contempt.

Doing this, incidentally, deprives the student of the motive to learn anything out of fashion today. It is a preparation not for a life of knowing and thinking, but for a life of compliance and conformity.

This is by no means an exhaustive account of what it would take to build a thoroughgoing tyranny—for further instruction, read Book Five of Aristotle’s Politics or George Orwell’s 1984. But it gives an idea of a mighty system, a system that seems unassailable, a system combining the powers of government and commerce, of education and communication. Money and power in such a system would accrue to the same hands. The people who benefit from the system would be the ruling class. Others would be frustrated. And such a system would tend to get worse, because the exercise of unchecked power does not bring out the best in people.

Any elaborate system of government must have a justification, and the justification of this one cannot simply be that those in the ruling class are entitled on the basis of their superiority. That argument went away with the divine right of kings. No, for the current ruling class, the justification is science. The claim of bureaucratic rule is a claim of expertise—of technical or scientific knowledge about everything. Listen to Fauci on Face the Nation, dismissing his critics in Congress as backward reactionaries. When those critics disagree with him, Fauci said recently, “They’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous.”

The problem with this kind of thinking was pointed out by a young Winston Churchill in a letter to the writer H.G. Wells in 1901. Churchill wrote:

Nothing would be more fatal than for the government of states to get into the hands of the experts. Expert knowledge is limited knowledge: and the unlimited ignorance of the plain man who knows only what hurts is a safer guide, than any vigorous direction of a specialised character. Why should you assume that all except doctors, engineers, etc. are drones or worse? . . . If the Ruler is to be an expert in anything he should be an expert in everything; and that is plainly impossible.

Churchill goes on to argue that practical judgment is the capacity necessary to making decisions. And practical judgment, he writes in many places, is something that everyone is capable of to varying degrees. Everyone, then, is equipped to guide his own life in the things that concern mainly himself.

Another thing about the experts is that they are not really engaged in the search for truth. Instead, the powerful among them suppress the obvious fact that there is wide disagreement among the experts. There always is.

God save us from falling completely into the hands of experts. But God has given us the wherewithal to save ourselves from that. So let us move to the second question posed above.

How to Defeat a Rising Despotism

In answering the second question, I will tell two stories that are suggestive.

The first took place in the small town of Jonesville, Michigan, five miles north of Hillsdale College. In our state, as in most places where the lockdowns were enforced, businesses were crippled or destroyed en masse. Restaurants were chief among them. One of our local restaurants is a 30-year-old diner called Spanglers Family Restaurant. Mitch Spangler is the proprietor. The business was founded by his late father, and Mitch was purchasing the business from his mother. The payments to his mother depended upon the revenues of the business, and his mother’s retirement depended upon the payments. The life’s work of two generations was at stake. Mitch was also helping to support a daughter in college.

This is not to mention the more than 20 employees whose livelihoods are dependent on Spanglers. “Our employees are moms who have kids,” Spangler told the local paper. “One of our employees is pregnant; another is a 19-year-old kid. This is his first job, and he just bought a car.” Our leaders in Washington treat it as a small thing when trillions are being thrown about. To the Spanglers and people like them, their relatively small revenue streams are everything.

Mr. Spangler was not prepared to surrender all this. When a second lockdown was ordered by Michigan’s governor a year ago last month, he kept his restaurant open. He put a sign on the door and posted on Facebook to make clear, among other things, that he was acting out of necessity for the sake of his business and the livelihoods of all those dependent on it; that precautions would be taken, including the installation of an electrostatic fogger that would disinfect the air; that he understood the thinking of those who would choose to stay away from his restaurant, but that he hoped they would understand his own thinking. “If you cannot support us, we understand,” he wrote, “but please allow us to have the freedom to do what we have to do.”

The wheels of bureaucracy began to grind. Spanglers was visited repeatedly by the health department, by the licensing authorities, and even by the agriculture department (one wonders what they had to do with it). Spangler was fined and threatened with forcible closure. But he persevered, never backing down, and his busines did well. On a typical weekend, not only locals but supporters from the neighboring states of Indiana and Ohio lined up outside to show their support.

Mitch Spangler is our kind of fellow, and the College gave him some help organizing his legal representation. We did not wish to be in the newspaper about this because we were facing our own pressures, and we too were determined to resist them. But Spangler was no good at keeping a secret: he wore a Hillsdale College t-shirt on FOX News and thanked us for our help. And when he had a little ceremony in his parking lot in the spring to thank his staff and his customers, I was honored to say a few words.

This may not seem on its face a big story, but it is a most important story. It is important because it is a story about the nature of human beings and of citizens and of our rights. The nature of a thing is the essence of a thing. One aspect of the nature of a human being is that he must eat to live. In condemnation of slavery, Abraham Lincoln loved to say that every man was created with a head, hands, and mouth, the implication being that the head should guide the hands in the feeding of the mouth. Because we are made to live this way, we are also determined to live this way. The alternative is dependence, which does not make us happy.

It should not therefore be surprising that, if you try to destroy the business of a man whose family has spent over 30 years building it, he will resist. Trying to strongarm people like Mitch Spangler is not a good idea. There are millions of them, and they have always made up the core of this greatest of free republics.

The second story is more famous, but it too is about nature—indeed, about that word’s most basic meaning. The word nature, as I said, refers to a thing’s essence, but it comes from the Latin word for birth. Our nature begins with how we are born and how we grow. Just as we are attached by nature to the way we get our livings, so we are attached by nature to our parents, and still more to our children. And this second story, set in Loudoun County, Virginia, is about parents and children.

In schools throughout Virginia, including in Loudoun County, children are being subjected to critical race theory (CRT). This involves lecturing children, especially those belonging to the non-preferred races, about the “structural evils” of which they are told they are part. Being taught alongside CRT is a distorted view of the history of our country, which true enough has its warts, but which surely has its glories as well—including glories about equal rights regardless of race. Between fighting the armies of the English monarch, the Confederacy, the Nazis, the communists, and Islamic terrorists, something nearing a million Americans have died for the cause of equal rights. These Americans have come in all colors.

Amidst statewide controversy over the teaching of CRT, the Loudoun County School Board also adopted a broad policy of recognizing “transgender” students in preference to their “biological sex” (excuse the redundancy). Even before this, boys were permitted to use girls’ bathrooms, in one of which there was an assault and rape of a female student by a “gender-fluid boy.” The boy in question was then allowed to attend another school in Loudoun County, where he assaulted another girl. This first girl’s parents were understandably outraged and, at the risk of being called narrow-minded, went so far as to complain to the school board.

Groups of parents who had already been protesting CRT and policies promoting transgenderism joined in the complaint. There was no violence at the school board meetings with one exception: law enforcement was summoned, and the outraged father of the assaulted and raped girl was bloodied and dragged out of one meeting. It is true, however, that voices were raised.

The National School Board Administration called upon the Biden administration to investigate these protesting parents as potential perpetrators of “domestic terrorism or hate crimes.” Remember, these parents were citizens attending a meeting of an elected body to tell their representatives what they think. The rights of petition and assembly are protected in the First Amendment. Except for certain preferred groups, these rights today appear to have been repealed.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland intervened, instructing the FBI to investigate these parents and others around the country. The FBI’s Counterterrorism Division has reportedly deployed tools and resources normally reserved for terrorist threats against parents who are angry at school boards for what is occurring in their children’s schools. All this provoked massive support, across Virginia and around the nation, for the parents of Loudoun County.

This support is not surprising. By nature, parents love their children and feel responsibility for them. Citizens, especially one hopes American citizens, feel entitled to state their grievances. The Declaration of Independence itself contains a list of grievances against the King. The Biden administration reacted to these protests just as King George III reacted against the American colonists in the years leading up to the American Revolution: he called in law enforcement. And the people of Virginia reacted in a way reminiscent of the American colonists: they defeated the candidate for governor who took the position that parents should have nothing to do with their children’s education.

What do these two stories—one of them taking place in Hillsdale County, Michigan, a deep red county, and the other in Loudoun County, Virginia, which is deeply blue—have in common? In both stories we see reactions against violations of our rights, rights that we have by nature as human beings.

The story about Mitch Spangler is about our right to work and to store up the product of our labor so that we and our families can eat and thrive. The American Founders put this in terms of our natural right to property. The story about the parents of Loudoun County is about the natural right of mothers and fathers to raise their children. To interfere with these rights is to interfere with the nature of the human being.

These facts about nature were well known during the American Revolution, the very Revolution that is besmirched by the members of our ruling class today, just as it was besmirched by the ruling class at the time of the Revolution. It was the interference with the colonists’ natural rights by that former ruling class that led to the American Revolution. These recent stories from Michigan and Virginia show that we Americans do not seem to like that interference any better today.

In addition to the right to make a living and the right to raise our children, we have the right to participate in our government, even if we are not experts, and the right to look to the heavens and not to our ruling class for guidance. We have these rights because we—every single one of us—were born with them sewn by God into our nature, and we cannot find our earthly fulfillment without them.

If we put these facts together as a people, we will have recovered the understanding that produced the American Revolution. We will stop these current predations upon our rights. We will bring this overwhelming government back where it belongs, under the control of the people.

The signs of such a movement are emerging. Pray they are enough.

VIDEO: A Year in the Strife of Joe Biden

By Family Research Council

To Joe Biden, it’s been a year. To the rest of the country, it’s felt like an eternity. The one-year anniversary of this president’s inauguration hasn’t exactly been cause for nationwide celebration, as a good number of his voters will tell you. Twelve months into his catastrophic term, only 28 percent of the country would reelect him (and that was before his disaster of a press conference). So when a reporter asked if the country is more unified than when he took office, Joe Biden is right. They are more unified — against him.

Of course, to hear this president tell it, the last several months have been “enormous progress,” the stuff of political legend. One correspondent begged to differ, asking, “Did you overpromise to the American public what you could achieve?” Biden’s response was typical. “I didn’t overpromise, but I have outperformed what anybody thought would happen… Everything is changing,” the president said. “It’s getting better.” People like Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) wondered what planet Biden was living on. “His record is a record of failure,” Johnson insisted. To the average American, this is true. But to the radical Left, he’s outperformed beyond their wildest dreams.

While the rest of the country scrounges for groceries — and the cash to pay for them — look at what Biden has accomplished for his fringe: record-setting abortion dollars, transgender mandates for public schools, attacks on Christian education, chaos at the border, chaos in Afghanistan, chaos in our election system, taxpayer-funded gender reassignments, CRT and LGBT indoctrination in our classrooms, American parents labeled “domestic terrorists,” transgenderism and wokeness in the military, conservatives and the unvaccinated out of the military, higher crime, fewer police, more division. The list goes on and on. Biden is failing on every single political measure except the one he cares about: the socialist Left’s.

“When you look at the pattern of what he’s done,” FRC Vice President Travis Weber pointed out, “it’s bizarre. It’s not in proportion to reality and what most people are concerned about.” He pointed to the 92 actions Biden has taken to undermine life, family, and religious freedom in just his first year — major policies or pronouncements that have altered the course for American values. It’s a record, surprisingly enough, that’s more extreme than Barack Obama’s. And it all points back to an abnormal fixation on things like transgenderism that are distracting from the very real issues our country is facing.

But there is one problem with catering to extremists, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) insisted on “Washington Watch.” Americans don’t like it. “They’re trying to force-feed their radical socialist agenda to the America people, and the American people are standing up and saying, ‘No, we don’t want anything to do with this.’” Unfortunately for Joe Biden, the bill for this gamble is about to come due. And the Democratic Party, limping into November because of this president’s failures, will appropriately be the ones paying it.

Earlier this week, Gallup painted a jarring picture of what’s coming: a 14-point party affiliation swing. It’s among the largest, the company says, it has ever measured for the parties “in any quarter since it started [tracking] party identification and leaning…” Making matters worse, Biden’s approval rating with African Americans is down more than 20 percent (78 to 57 percent), and among Hispanics, he can barely muster 28 percent support. If that’s his idea of a “pretty good” report card, the president is less in touch with reality than people thought.

But then, as his party has made quite clear, they aren’t going to let a little something like voters get in the way of their majority. As the background to Biden’s nightmare of a press conference, Senate Democrats were futilely trying to ram through their election takeover bill to guarantee one-party control. When it failed, the president moved on to plan B: undermining the midterm results.

In a statement that’s more than a little hypocritical, given the party’s outrage over the GOP’s skepticism in 2020, Biden lowered himself to casting doubt on any election the Democrats don’t win. “Oh, 2022… I mean, sure… I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit,” he told reporters at Wednesday’s press conference. “…[T]he increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these — these reforms passed.”

“This isn’t normal,” Dan McLaughlin warns. When the president of the United States attacks our election system as “rigged,” he’s “playing with fire.” Sure, “Democrats have a long history of refusing to accept the legitimacy of defeats… But this is still an alarming escalation.” An escalation that was already well on its way when the president equated honest Americans with history’s racists.

It’s certainly a long way from where we were at this point last year when Joe Biden stood at the podium and promised unity. “We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature.” Twelve months later, he’s the one who’s shouting. And disunity rages on like another virus he can’t stop.

Sharpton: Blacks Behind Trump at a Rally Are Only ‘Props’ So He Won’t Look Racist

By Dr. Rich Swier

Monday on MSNBC’s Deadline, network host and lifelong race hustler Al Sharpton claimed with zero evidence that black people in the bleachers behind former President Donald Trump at an Arizona rally were merely “optics” to “sell racism.”

Sharpton said, “The fact that we all saw them sitting there, clearly they were put there for the optics. There was one guy that went around the whole 2020 race with a ‘Blacks for Trump’ sign. It seems like now he’s got more. They are put there strategically so that [Trump] can say the most racist things and not look racist.”

Nothing Trump or any Republican can do is ever enough for race-mongering, Democrat demagogues like Sharpton. If there are no blacks in the bleachers behind Trump, it’s evidence that he’s racist. If there are blacks in the bleachers, it’s again evidence that he’s racist. The right can’t win.

Sharpton added, “I mean who gets a group of people, ‘Blacks for Trump,’ and just happens to sit there, and they happen to get within camera view? I mean, no one could be that stupid to think that that just happened to be they got the good seats. That is choreographed so he can sell racism and look like he’s not a racist. I think it is something that we all ought to deplore. I wouldn’t waste my time worrying about who he props up.”

Speaking of wasting time worrying, no one should waste any worrying about Sharpton’s opinion because he is a shameful liar and smear merchant. To hate-mongers like Sharpton, blacks who have abandoned the Democrat plantation to support Trump — and there is a growing percentage who are — are contemptible race traitors. The truth is that the Rev. Al has made a career of dragging American blacks down, while Trump has done more than any Democrat ever to lift them up.

Sharpton Emphatically Calls America “A Racist Country” in His Eulogy for Black Man Killed by Policeman

On May 3, 2021, Sharpton delivered the eulogy at the funeral for Andrew Brown Jr., a black man who had died a few days earlier following an encounter with law enforcement. In his 22-minute eulogy, which was spent entirely on condemning America’s allegedly ubiquitous racism, Sharpton said that Brown had been: (a) “unjustly brought to death,” and (b) “unjustifiably and illegally” “execute[d].” “We must deal with the inequality in the criminal justice system today,” he declared. “… The challenge in these times is how we’re going to deal with policing in America and restoring the right to vote…. This must stop! Enough is enough! How many funerals do we have to have before we tell the Congress and the Senate that you’ve got to do something [in] these times?”

Sharpton also condemned black Republican Senator Tim Scott’s assertion that America is not a racist country. Among Sharpton’s remarks were the following:

  • “Seems something awkward to me where a white president [Biden] talked about white supremacy and a black senator said that America’s not racist. Seem a little strange to me. Now, everybody in America is not racist. But are you talking about whether the practice of America is racist, or the people? Because the practice of America was built on racism. It was against the law for us to read and write. It was against the law for us to marry. It was against the law for us to name our children after us. We were brought here to work and never get paid. That’s how the country was built…. What do you mean America is not racist? It was started off racism!”

The League for Islamic-American Relations (LIAR) – Part 2 thumbnail

The League for Islamic-American Relations (LIAR) – Part 2

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

Many thanks to Laser List member Jim Simpson for information on the UN below.

Today, I pick up where I left off yesterday – tearing apart the false narratives spun by CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

CAIR would have you believe Islam is good for women.  In its op-ed, CAIR said sharia ended the chattel status of women and eradicated female infanticide, among other accomplishments benefitting women.  However, gender inequality is worse in Muslim countries, the testimony of women is worth less than men in sharia law, and Muhammad said women are intellectually inferior to men.  Quran 4:34 condones wife-beating, as long as no bones are broken.  Islam has a history of forced marriage and child brides that continues to this day, right here in America, meaning the chattel status of women still exists in Islam as we speak.  CAIR doesn’t deal with any of this in its op-ed, because it can’t.

On another subject, CAIR’s national deputy director wrote in another op-ed, which was touted on CAIR’s website, that the “great replacement theory” as a way of explaining open borders and mass migration policies is delusional, racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.  However, the United Nations talks about Replacement Migration and promotes regular migration through its actions.  In addition, left-wing activists openly talk about the Great Replacement theory, and the Biden administration has not offered any other justification for its long list of open borders initiatives.  So spare me the indignation.  CAIR is either ignorant or lying about replacement migration.

I would guess lying, and here’s why – the Islamic doctrine of hijrah, the religious duty to colonize.  As one article put it:

To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” [Quran] (4:100)

So it’s no wonder CAIR gets all hysterical whenever anyone calls attention to the Biden administration’s open borders policies and the fact that the United Nations is funding and facilitating illegal immigration.  If, somehow, a stop were put to all this, that would put a crimp in hijrah.  The Islamic colonization of the West would be set back.  Funny, but the national deputy director of CAIR doesn’t mention hijrah in his op-ed – not one word about it.  Why do you suppose that is?

One final word:  Everything CAIR tells you is suspect.  This is because Islam imposes a religious duty on its followers to lie to outsiders if it will advance the cause of Islam.  The doctrine is called ‘taqiya’ and the fact that it exists is not disputed.   So, when CAIR or other Muslims tell you that jihad is just a struggle against eating too much cheesecake, or hide the fact that sharia is really about world domination, or proclaim that women have it really great under Islam, just remember taqiya – they are lying to you so they can take over the country and the world.  Realize they will stop at nothing to succeed.  This is why CAIR should rename itself the League for American-Islamic Relations, or ‘LIAR’, for short.

CAIR – the Council on American-Islamic Relations – holds itself out as a civil rights organization, but it is actually Hamas in America and was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism financing case.  False narratives are CAIR’s stock in trade.

I’m about to be critical of CAIR – very critical.  But, before you dismiss everything I say as ‘Islamophobic’, you should know CAIR itself says, “It is not appropriate to label all, or even the majority of those, who question Islam and Muslims as Islamophobes.” (CAIR Report 2013, Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States, p. ix).

False narrative number one is found in a CAIR op-ed from last August – ‘jihad’ does not mean holy war.  “It refers instead to a general striving towards the good,” CAIR claims or, as it is often put, ‘jihad is just a spiritual struggle’.  Which is ridiculous, like the time a Muslim FBI employee told an official gathering in Detroit, ‘jihad is a struggle against eating too much cheesecake.’   Tell it to the families of the 9/11 victims.  CAIR knows it is being disingenuous.  It distributes an approved translation of the Quran for America which contains footnotes referring to taking prisoners and holding women as captives in jihad as holy war.  Moreover, CAIR does not deal with or even mention in its op-ed the many passages in the Quran calling for holy war.  Here are just three:

  • Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme. Quran 8:40
  • I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads; strike off the very tips of their fingers. Quran 8:12
  • If you encounter the disbelievers in a battle, strike-off their heads. Take them as captives when they are defeated.  Quran 47:4

In light of these passages, for CAIR to deny ‘jihad’ means violent holy war is gaslighting of the highest order.  It doesn’t take an Islamic scholar to understand what ‘strike off their heads’ means.  All such scholarship does is blow smoke.  These are the words of Allah and they cannot be changed, Muslims believe.

The second false narrative in CAIR’s op-ed holds that ‘sharia’ or Islamic law is just about praying to Allah, being honest, and giving charity to the poor.  Here again, CAIR does not mention the passages in the Quran calling for sharia supremacy, that is world domination and the forced conversion of all humankind to Islam.  Here are three passages from standard Islamic doctrine documenting that Islam is all about sharia supremacy:

  • Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me (that) I am the Messenger and in all that I have brought.” Muslim: C9B1N31 (hadith)
  • The only religion acceptable before God is Islam. Quran 3:19
  • He it is who has sent his Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to make it victorious over all religion even though the infidels may resist. Quran 61:9

So there you have it.  Jihad is holy war in service of sharia supremacy and world domination.  This approach is sometimes criticized as a ‘literal interpretation’ of standard Islamic doctrine.  However, I contend that, if it’s literal, it’s not interpreted.  There can be no ‘literal interpretation’, that’s an oxymoron.  There is, however, a plain reading of the words on the page, and the words plainly say all non-Muslims are to be vanquished until the entire world submits to Islam.  No amount of flim-flam from CAIR, the FBI, or the other LIARS in our government who don’t want to deal with the threat Islam poses to the Constitution, national security, and law enforcement can change that.

That’s it for today.  I’ll pick up with this tomorrow.

Flag Bearers Are Found Few and Far Between These Days and Especially on a Day Hovering Around 23 degrees Fahrenheit

By Vince Schmuki

So when I saw this lowly figure in the distance, as I was driving down Mequon Rd. Mequon WI,  I knew that there was a story there worth stopping and freezing for.

Meet Nick Trofimoff. Nick was walking with a message, one worth freezing for but also one that is worthy of giving a listen to. Nick has family in the military. But more than that. Nick recognizes that this country is missing something these days- patriotism. He remembered 9/11, “People came together and were patriotic after 9/11. People forgot. Now that We’ve left Afghanistan, people are forgetting all over again.”, he lamented.

Indeed, if anything, we are probably more pulled apart now than anytime since the civil war. Though many had high hopes for this past year, it is clear that the rhetoric coming out of  the Washington DC leadership is creating more division, not less.

The real government leadership needed to heal and bring this country back together is sorely lacking today. In this age of symbolism, the symbolic leadership that we are experiencing from our government leaders is not going to cut it anymore. We need substance, action and results. So it is left to us to take the lead, to pick up the one banner that unites more than it divides, to embrace the unity that in our darkest moments, held us together as a nation.

Though the flag is largely symbolic, it represents the spirit of unity that we have in God’s gift of freedom to this country and the principles upon which this country was founded. If each of us in humility and gratitude could lay down their individual flags and in symbolism and substance begin to rally, one with another, to the unity that our flag represents, we just might, with God’s guidance, bring our nation back together.

May God bless Nick for warming my heart on a very cold January day, as he trudged along in the freezing cold. May we all become as Nick, united as lovers of our country, both in spirit and substance because God only knows how badly that is what is needed today!

Nick gave me permission for public publishing of his image and my permission is granted for public publishing with attribution.

My humble thanks for your kind consideration.

“Free to Vote” Should Not Mean “Free to Cheat” thumbnail

“Free to Vote” Should Not Mean “Free to Cheat”

By Jerry Newcombe

“The bedrock of the American republic is that elections must be free, fair, accurate, and trusted.” – So states Mollie Hemingway in her important book, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections (2021).

I spoke with Mollie on the radio when her book came out. She told our audience, “I found after 2020 the way that you weren’t allowed to talk about [the election] to be completely suspicious. We all lived through it. It was the weirdest election of our lifetime—but then you weren’t allowed to notice that in any way.” Nothing to see here—move along.

In order to secure voter integrity, Georgia passed a law after the irregularities of the 2020 election. And this voting law has been viciously attacked by the left. But Tim Head, executive director of the Faith and Freedom Coalition (based in Atlanta), argues that in reality this law makes it easier to vote. Despite the lies of the media, Hollywood, the woke corporations, and the liberal politicians, including President Biden (who called the law “Jim Crow 2.0”), the law is a good step toward restoring voter integrity.

Tim Head told me, “The crux of the issue really comes down to: Do Americans and do voters have confidence that we as citizens and as voters have a voice, a meaningful voice, in our government? We need to have confidence that all of our voices are heard and otherwise, we can start moving closely, more closely towards almost a banana republic status.”

Last week Joe Biden visited Georgia and tried to peddle the left’s own voter overhaul bill, the “Free to Vote” Act, which would have the effect of federalizing all elections going forward, and would remove crucial vote-security measures.

And yet, in Article I, Section 4, the U.S. Constitution says: “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof.”

Biden asserted that opposition to the bill to federalize elections was essentially racist: “At consequential moments in history, they present a choice. Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”

But critics note that this bill would loosen common sense voter photo-ID restrictions.

Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakavsky, co-author (with John Fund) of Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote, told me in an interview: “Those laws have been in place now for more than eight decades. We have years of turnout data in states with voter ID laws, that data clearly shows it does not suppress votes. It does not keep people out of the polls. It certainly does not keep minority voters out of the polls.”

Ken Blackwell, Senior Fellow with the Family Research Council, notes, “If it was difficult to get a voter ID, you could say it was a restraint to participation. Well it’s not difficult and you just think whether it’s taking out a library book, getting on an airplane, buying certain adult beverages, you have to show an ID.”

Interestingly a new survey of likely Michigan voters found: “[M]ore than 75% of participants supported a requirement to show a government-issued photo ID in order to vote, while support among Black residents was even higher at 79%.”

Another security measure requires updating voter registration rolls—so that no vote is cast by say, a person who died 10 years ago.

Veteran journalist Bob Knight says, “The question I always ask is, ‘How can you be against accurate voter rolls and say that’s somehow racist or suppressing the vote, when everybody’s treated the same?’”

Some critics believe that the porous border, where hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are pouring into America, is a strategy by the left to sustain political power—by getting these people to vote and vote for the left. Recently, New York City has approved letting 800,000 illegal aliens vote in elections—local ones, for now. Critics note that this is why the Biden administration has not lifted a finger to close our southern border.

And then, there’s “ballot harvesting”—a system where third parties can collect mail ballots. Critics note this is rife with potential for voter fraud.

And on it goes.

And now Biden and the left want to completely overhaul our election system to make sure they always retain their power. Going forward, we must make sure that elections are fair and just—that it is easy to vote, but difficult to cheat. And the place to do that is in the state legislatures—according to the Constitution Joe Biden swore to uphold.

Carville: ‘Dems Whine Too Much’ — ‘Quit Being a Whiny Party’ thumbnail

Carville: ‘Dems Whine Too Much’ — ‘Quit Being a Whiny Party’

By Discover The Networks

Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, cadaverous, cantankerous Democrat strategist James Carville declared that Democrats “whine too much” when asked about President Joe Biden’s popularity with his own party members.

Asked what he would fix first among the Biden administration’s failures on every issue, Carville replied, “There’s an expression that I love. It’s called ‘soldier on,’ right? And I don’t think we have sufficiently — if you’re a part of the Democratic base and you don’t care about child poverty, and you don’t care about hourly workers, then you’re really not a Democrat, right? Now, I think a lot of the Democratic base has not been told or informed of the things that, that that President Biden and this Congress has accomplished.”

Perhaps that’s because Biden and this Congress have accomplished nothing except to drive the ship of state into an iceberg.

“But to me, those are the things that, that if I’m a Democratic, I much more care about that than some word in a dictionary — that children are going to bed with a full stomach and a warm, you know, a warm house. I care that somebody, an hourly worker, is not sitting there working away at $7.25 an hour. And I see these signs all over, even in Louisiana and south Mississippi: $700 signing bonus. Those are, those are real accomplishments. And it’s something that you can run on.”

Maybe the Democrats could run on soaring fuel prices and record inflation, too, since that’s what they have accomplished.

“And again, you don’t talk about what you didn’t get. That’s what these — Democrats whine too much, Chuck,” Carville continued. “Just quit being a whiny party. And get out there and, and fight, and tell people what you did. And tell people the exact truth.”

If Democrats were ever to run on “telling people the exact truth,” they would never win another election.

In August 2016, Carville asserted that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was “pretty stupid when it comes to politics,” adding that “this guy is a loser and he’s not running a very smart campaign.” When a Vanity Fair interviewer asked Carville, less than three weeks later, to comment on the upcoming presidential election between Trump and Hillary Clinton, Carville said: “It’s hard to look at it right now and come to any other conclusion than it is going to be a pretty sizable win for the Democrats.” Moreover, he described Trump as a candidate who “fit perfectly with at least half of the Republican Party, which is some version of an ethnocentric, nationalistic party” whose white members tended, in Carville’s vernacular, to embrace Trump’s claims that all of their problems had been caused by “stupid politicians and immigrants.”

NYT Calls For ‘War-Gaming’ Insurgency, Secession, Civil War thumbnail

NYT Calls For ‘War-Gaming’ Insurgency, Secession, Civil War

By Discover The Networks

New York Times essay last Thursday titled “We Need to Think the Unthinkable About Our Country,” called to intensify “war games” for scenarios concerning the 2024 presidential elections such as “insurrection, secession, insurgency and civil war,” in order to avert “America’s abject political decay.”

The essay was penned by Jonathan Stevenson, former National Security Council staffer under Obama, and Steven Simon, a former State Department staffer in the Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama administrations.

It begins by claiming that the U.S. is “even more alarmingly fractious and divided” one year after the January 6 Capitol breach, which the Left has falsely deemed an “insurrection” that represented such a serious threat to democracy that they want to commemorate it every year as a reminder that supporters of former President Trump are domestic terrorists.

“Regrettably, the right has sustained its support for Donald Trump and continued its assault on American democratic norms,” the authors ranted. They argue — correctly — that the next presidential election “will almost inevitably be viciously (perhaps violently) contested,” but they neglect to mention that it is the Democrats who violently contest election results that don’t go their way. Instead, the authors claim that “a right-wing minority — including many elected politicians — is now practicing a form of brinkmanship by threatening to unilaterally destroy American democracy.”

Stevenson and Simon posit hysterically that “War games, tabletop exercises, operations research, campaign analyses, conferences and seminars on the prospect of American political conflagration — including insurrection, secession, insurgency and civil war — should be proceeding at a higher tempo and intensity.”

This is fear-mongering demagoguery and incitement to violence. The left’s chief propaganda outlet — the New York Times — is outright pushing for civil war against its political opponents. They are the ones threatening to destroy American democracy.

Today The New York Times is America’s largest metropolitan newspaper and one of the most widely read dailies in the world, with a circulation (as of 2006) of approximately 1,142,464 copies on weekdays and 1,683,855 copies on Sundays. Owned by The New York Times Company, which also owns the Boston Globe and 14 other newspapers, the Times is published in New York City by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr. and is distributed internationally. It has 16 news bureaus in the New York region, 11 national news bureaus, and 26 foreign news bureaus. As of December 2005, the Times staff consisted of more than 350 full-time reporters and approximately 40 photographers, in addition to hundreds of free-lance contributors.

During the course of its history the Times has won 94 Pulitzer Prizes (including a record seven in 2002), far more than any other newspaper. These awards have sometimes been fraught with controversy, however. For example, Walter Duranty was a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Moscow correspondent in the 1930s who concealed his knowledge of Joseph Stalin‘s mass murders and other atrocities in the Soviet Union. In 1933, at the height of the Russian famine during which millions starved to death, Duranty wrote that “village makets [were] flowing with eggs, fruit, poultry, vegetables, milk and butter. … A child can see this is not famine but abundance.” According to historians, reports such as these were crucial factors influencing President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s decision to grant the Soviet Union diplomatic recognition in 1933. Writes historian Ronald Radosh,  “Duranty was a propagandist for Stalin and everything he wrote was a lie.”

The Framing of Patriot Elmer Stewart Rhodes III thumbnail

The Framing of Patriot Elmer Stewart Rhodes III

By Save America Foundation

The Democrats who stole the 2020 election and put in power a mentally challenged and unstable president, whose reputation as a pervert, crime boss and American traitor came with him, have had a bad year. The extreme left of the party has taken control and has continuously helped destroy any vestiges of decency that political party ever had.

To hide and distract citizens from these horrendous policy disasters and constant failures plus the seemingly never ending continued destruction of our constitutional republic, they use false narratives like race, right wing extremists, climate change, white privilege and blaming everything on Trump!!!

Their latest lie is about a group they love to hate. The Oath Keepers. A patriot group founded in 2009 by Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, 56, a former military parachutist who joined the army right out of school. After a night exercise went wrong and he was injured he interned for Ron Paul, another hero of mine. He then went to Yale and became an attorney. He became more involved in the politics and neglected his law practice in Montana and he was disbarred. He was ahead of the curve and saw which way this country was heading and he created Oath Keepers, which was when he and I became acquainted and I joined his awesome organization.

Members pledge to “fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,’” and to defend the Constitution. Not on our watch is our motto.

We were involved in the unconstitutional overstep of the federal government at the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada. Armed militias stood up against tyranny and we won. This was done during that other traitor, girly boy and seriously testosterone challenged Hussein Obamas presidency which drove this country towards where we are today.

During the Trump era things normalized more and we could relax a little, but the hatred and racial strife being pushed by the left bought the possibility of a civil war/separation of the states as once again there was no common ground. The New Socialist Democrat party kept moving left and then left again leaving many Americans behind. The great results of the Trump administration were belittled and lied about and manipulated by possibly the worst and most corrupt media in the world.

As it became clear as day that the Biden camp and the extremists had actually pulled of the largest singular act of treason by stealing an actual presidential election, it was understood by many of us that there was a real possibility of conflict.

When the rightful and truly elected president, Donald J Trump, called for a rally to protest the stolen election, everyone with half an active brain cell understood that the extreme left, made up of real domestic terrorists and their groups like BLM, Antifa and other commie and socialist groups, who all summer had protested and rioted in major blue cities, causing billions in damages and the death of many innocents without any criminal recourse, would likely try to counter protest and infiltrate the Trump rally.

Oath Keepers knew that. The many conversations and messages between active members quite rightly made plans to defend the rally, the president and property from more than likely serious physical harm. It was truly believed that any protest by the Trump supporters would be met with bloody and furious counter protesters and plans were made accordingly. No laws were broken and what clothing was worn was irrelevant. Not criminal action.

Constitutionalists and true patriots were infuriated by the whole blatant electoral fraud perpetrated by the Democrats. Many saw it as their duty to protest and try stop the certification of the process until an independent and full investigation was carried out. After all, we have all learnt that it’s not always possible to get just judicial results on a system so corrupted by the left where constitutional decisions are made politically and thus breaking the Oaths these judges took.

Whether or not Rhodes spent $15,000 on weaponry, legal purchases and weapons is also irrelevant. They were not taken to the Capitol. The only truly armed people there were members of one of the most corrupt police forces in this country and one that needs disbanding. The only true death caused solely by the protest at the Capitol building was the cold blooded murder of a slight in stature, blond former air force veteran female patriot who posed no physical threat to any trained and well armed officer there. She was murdered. Plain and simple. There will never be justice for that murder until that officer is arrested and faces charges. He was a coward.

The indictment of Stewart Rhodes and other Oath Keepers is like the one on Kyle Rittenhouse – pure fiction. Designed to take the sheep minds off the disaster that is the result of the failed and anti American Biden Agenda.

The several members who have been previously imprisoned in draconian fashion by this evil DOJ have been intimidated and forced with mental and physical torture to “rat” on others, including Stewart Rhodes and others in leadership positions. All to either just get it done, get their lives back or some other reason. The whole idea is to also attempt to destroy a good and patriotic organization.

Let’s be honest here, Stewart Rhodes has more love and more patriotism in his little finger on his left hand for this country than the entire Biden administration and its corrupt alphabet agencies and Justice Department.

People have infiltrated the ranks and inner circle of the Oath Keepers as the left try and get it destroyed. Some were there in January 6th. Meanwhile their own domestic terror groups can run amok doing whatever they want with impunity.

America. The time is coming. We have one chance to take our country back this year and if we fail the possible end result could be catastrophic. For the left —-

Dear Jimmy Bob Acosta RE: Your article on President Trump’s lying? thumbnail

Dear Jimmy Bob Acosta RE: Your article on President Trump’s lying?

By Christopher Cirino

Good day Jimmy Bob Acosta and CNN staff,

I would just like to congratulate Jimmy Bob Acosta on his Pulitzer Prize winning article regarding elected President Trump’s lying.  The one titled, Drowning in Lies: Trump and his allies.  What a fair, unbiased, even-keeled article by Ole Bob.  But, I guess that has always been his mantra, such journalistic integrity.  Kudos Bobby!

My question is, will he be giving the same attention in regards to lying, with the installed person in the White House now, Joey Robinette Biden Jr. a.k.a. the dementia ridden puppet of Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein?  If Jimmy Bob is so intrigued by lying, why not address the sociopathic behavior of Joey Talibiden.

Here, I’ll even give Bobby a few of little Joey’s pieces  of “malarkey” to start off his next Pulitzer.

  • I will not leave any American behind in Afghanistan!  Of course this was until the Taliban (extreme terrorist organization), told Joey Robinette and world super power America, to be out of the country by 8/31/21.  Geez, I thought tough guy Joey Robinette takes people behind the wood shed, not the other way around.  There are still Americans there today! But don’t worry, the houseplant occupying the White House is sending “relief money”(wink, wink) to Afghanistan, you know for humanitarian reasons.  Just, too funny.
  •  I will not issue a vaccine mandate!  Boy that one didn’t age well, huh Bobby?  Well he tried, all the way up to the Supreme Court.  Even with the fair and balanced Justice Sotomayor chiming that there are over 100,000 kids in hospitals with Covid, many on ventilators!  Of course, this was immediately rebuked  the very next day by the CDC, which said there are fewer than 3,500 kids in hospitals with Covid.  Hey, here’s an idea Jimmy Bob, after Joey’s article maybe you can do an article on Sotomayor’s lies and ineptitude.
  • If you get the shot, you will not have to wear a mask!  How’s that one working out?
  • I will shut the virus down, not the economy!  I have a plan to end the virus! So Jimmy Bob, when do you think Ole Lying Biden is going to spring this earth shattering plan on us…..I mean it has been a year already.  What’s the delay from Dr. Dementia?
  • Denies there is a problem at the Southern border.  He says Border Czar Heels Up Harris is doing a fantastic job. Do you concur with this statement by the great unifier, Jimmy Bob?  We reached out to Kalamity, but all she did was laugh hysterically.
  • The unvaccinated are the reason for this deadly virus!  Really, 3 shots, masks, social distancing (I personally love that one), shutting down businesses, houses of worship, gyms, entire cities for that matter…….that didn’t do it?  Gotcha!  I must say, if nothing else, the guy at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave is entertaining.  Actually, you are too Bobby Acosta.
  • The economy is doing great!  Really, how are those wage gains doing against staggering inflation? How is the labor participation rate doing there champ?  Etc., etc., etc.
  • I will not relieve students from paying back their loans.  I will though, keep granting them a moratorium every few months on paying it back instead.  You know, to stay in the good graces of millionaire Bernie Sanders and the brilliant AOC.  Sort of a back door way to grant them loan cancellations.
  • Of course, tons of other little fables, Beijing Biden has told.  That he was arrested during a civil rights march……false!  That he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela…….false.  His infamous Amtrak fairy tales (told numerous times, even against advisors wishes, either stubborn/or just dementia)……false.  He used to drive tractor trailers………false.  He used to work in coal mines…..false.  He was shot at in Iraq…..false.
  • Etc., etc., etc.

Well Jimmy Bob boy, you get the idea.  These are just a few of the fables this pathological liar has told.  It should be enough to get you started I would think.  Now that I think of it, you are probably getting all this material together for a book, due to the volume of lies. Maybe call it, Joey Robinette, Pathological Liar or Dementia Patient.  Or better yet, Installed Puppet. As a bonus, you could include transcripts of his last two speeches………wow, talk about sun downing. Geez!

Maybe you could work in conjunction with that other truth seeking outlet, The NY Times.  The Executive Editor over there Dean Baquet is as pure as the driven snow. Yep, old Deano, they don’t make them like that anymore.  He is right up there with Joey Talibiden, as far as integrity goes.  Maybe get a foreword done by the other even keeled seeker of truth, MSNBC anchor, Rachel  Maddow.

One question, do you realize how entertaining you are Jimmy Bob Acosta?  Like the Times or CNN, in general, that is.  I love to start my day with you guy’s headlines……absolutely hysterical.  You do know that, right?  I mean this is being done for comedic value, right? This isn’t serious journalism, right.  Nah, I didn’t think so, just too, too funny.

Keep up the great writing Jimmy Bob boy.  You guys provide such comic relief during these trying times.

Hey, how is Chris “Fredo” Cuomo doing?  Do you guys keep in touch? How’s Toobin doing?  Is he still getting in touch with his inner self?  How’s the viewership % doing lately?  I’m sure you’re knocking them dead.  It must be due to all that journalistic integrity I was talking about earlier.

Unhinged Leftists: Now, That’s Entertainment! thumbnail

Unhinged Leftists: Now, That’s Entertainment!

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

It’s hard to keep up with all the crazy talk gushing out of the Left these days, but I’ll try my best.

A leftist writer said parenthood should be abolished, raising your own kids should be illegal, and kids should swapped with those of homeless neighbors to achieve “true equity”.  That’s very far down the rabbit hole.

An eco-warrior threatened to blow up pipelines because, in his view, political leaders aren’t acting fast enough on climate change.

Squad member Ayanna Pressley said student debt is “policy violence”.  Violence?  That’s crazy talk.  But, then, the Democrats are given to crazy talk.  The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said Republicans are “dangerous”, “chaotic”, “reckless”, “divisive”, “cynical”, and “a threat to public health”.  Did I mention “dangerous”?  This, from the people who brought you the KKK and Antifa.  Who’s “dangerous”, again?

An opinion piece in the New York Times said people are better off dead than adopted.  Dave Thomas, the creator of Wendy’s who was adopted, would have been surprised to hear that.

A teacher’s union official wrote unvaccinated people with religious exemptions deserve to die.  And Republicans should kill them.  Wow, I’m not even going to try to figure that one out.

Chicago’s Mayor said retailers deserve what they get because they haven’t done enough to protect themselves from looting.  Didn’t they used to call that ‘blaming the victim’?  AOC denied the existence of smash-and-grab robberies despite the fact they’ve been widely reported.  There’s a psychiatric diagnosis for people who cannot accurately perceive reality – it’s called schizophrenia.

As if crazy talk weren’t bad enough, threats and actual physical violence from the Left are escalating.

A former teacher pled guilty to threatening a New Hampshire legislator who had spoken out against teaching critical race theory in schools.  “Hope you get skull-f**ked to death,” the teacher said.  Charming.  But not as charming as the man who began yelling at parents at a school board meeting in Texas for opposing CRT who claimed to have an army of a thousand soldiers locked and loaded, ready to wipe them out.

Unhinged leftists are increasingly acting out their craziness.  Like the leftist teacher who stuck her kid in the trunk of her car because the kid had tested positive for COVID.  Or the feminist who hit a pro-life demonstrator in the face with a sign.  She shouted “I hate you”, as she walked away.

The Left loves to whip up race hatred so it’s not surprising a black man in Florida killed a 14-year-old white boy for racial reasons.  Records show the man used anti-white slurs after he was arrested and he killed the boy to take revenge for what white people have done to black people in the past.  Another black man cut to the chase on Twitter, calling for genocide against whites and saying he wanted to ‘put all you white opossums in a gas chamber.’  I blame the Left for producing people like this.

I wish I could say I was making all this up. But I’m not.

There is hope, however.  I’ve been waiting for moderate Democrats to take their party back from the unhinged Left.  Finally, some of them are openly criticizing Progressives for putting the Democrat Party on an unsustainable path and forcing candidates into unelectable far-left positions.   Let’s hope this blossoms into something like Bill Clinton’s Democratic Leadership Council which formed in the 1980s to keep the Democratic Party from going too far left.

Something is Happening Here and What it is is Becoming Perfectly Clear thumbnail

Something is Happening Here and What it is is Becoming Perfectly Clear

By Dr. Rich Swier

“There’s something happening here, But what it is ain’t exactly clear. – Buffalo Springfield, For What It’s Worth 1967

I was listening to the song For What It’s Worth recorded in 1967 by Buffalo Springfield. After listening to the lyrics, “There’s something happening here, But what it is ain’t exactly clear I had an epiphany an ah ha moment.

I was in Vietnam fighting against Communist North Vietnamese forces while students were in the streets and on campuses protesting the war and Buffalo Springfield released their song For What It’s Worth.

Fast forward to 2022 and I am still fighting Communism but it has come to America in the form of policies that even Stalin, Mao and Ho Chi Minh would be proud of. You see Communism requires that religion, the opiate of the people, be destroyed. Communists doctrine embraces sin and sinful behaviors. Sinful behaviors like coveting, murder, sodomy, false idols.

Joseph Stalin said,

“God is on your side? Is He a Conservative? The Devils’ on my side, he’s a good Communist.”

Gird your loins. For what it’s worth I’m going to be very politically incorrect now.

Since January 20th, 2021 I have seen something happening here and what it is has become perfectly clear.

Protecting Pedophiles, Pederasts and Sodomites

I have been following the trial of Jeffrey Epstein and his cohort Ghislaine Maxwell, who was found guilty of multiple charges of sex trafficking of underaged girls to the rich and powerful.

I have seen Ashley Biden’s handwritten diary that proved that her father is a pervert and sexual predator. Her diary reveals that her father, and now president, had showered with Ashley when she was a little girl. Then24 reported,

“In a diary of US President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley, which has now been confirmed as authentic by the New York Times and the FBI, Ashley Biden describes drug abuse and affairs as well as ‘inappropriate’ showers with her father Joe. She also asks herself the question ‘Have I been abused?’ and replies with ‘I think so’.”

I also learned that Bill Gates’ wife had concerns about her husbands relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Fox Business is reporting,

Melinda Gates was supposedly concerned with her soon-to-be ex-husband Bill Gates’ relationship with disgraced financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in the years leading up to their high-profile divorce last week, according to a Sunday report. People familiar with the couple’s divorce proceedings and a former employee of their charity, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, told The Wall Street Journal that Melinda’s concerns about Epstein went back as far as 2013.”

On November 17th, 2019 in an article titled “The Human Tragedy of the Victims of Muslim Rape Gangs” Joshua Winston reported,

“Everywhere Muslims settle, rape and grooming gangs spring up. Whether it be a town, city, village or a new land, rape is what many Muslim men become known for in the West. Every race and culture produce rapists, but none so flagrant and voluminous as Muslims (Pakistanis in particular). There is a new documentary released just now called “Why dad killed mum, my family’s secret.” Tasnim Lowe, the daughter of a young girl who was impregnated at a young age by a Muslim man and then killed along with her family in a fire that he deliberately started, is now seeking answers as to why her mother (Lucy Lowe) was killed. She is asking what red flags should have been set off by an adult man impregnating a 14-year-old girl at that time (roughly two decades ago). She is also asking what more her mother’s family could have done to prevent the deaths of her mother, aunt and grandmother at the hands of this violent Muslim man. After all, her mother started dating the 24-year-old man when she was only 13. Why was no one objecting to that? Why weren’t police and children’s services not going after a man who had raped a child in the eyes of the law?”

Sex neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh in a January 03, 2022 article titled “Biological sex is being redefined to subvert society” reported:

On Thursday [December 30, 2021], Science, one of the top scientific publications in the world, ran a letter titled, “Transgender rights rely on inclusive language,” suggesting that biological sex is “context-dependent” and not binary.

If you had to go back and re-read that last sentence, let me assure you, you did indeed read it correctly. The letter — authored by two neuroscientists and a graduate student in biology — argues for “inclusive language around sex diversity,” and that, in the five years since the National Institutes of Health announced that research proposals should include sex as a biological variable, society has become hostile to transgender people.

The NIH’s directive was originally instated to address the fact that biomedical studies including only male participants lacked application to women. Pre-Clown World, this would be uncontroversial. But behold the pathway of thinking social justice ideology has plowed while I mourn my former field of neuroscience.

Anyone who follows my writing will know by now that sex is determined by gametes: eggs and sperm. As a result, there are only two sexes, and biological sex is not a spectrum. Intersex people, who possess a combination of female and male anatomy (and who are frequently tokenized by activists as a justification for outlandish claims), typically prefer to live as male or female, within a binary conception of sex. [Emphasis added]

Read the full article.

Government Protecting The Pedophiles, Pederasts and Sodomites

Today it has become perfectly clear that government is protecting the pedophiles, pederasts and sodomites in our nation in the name of “social justice” and to avoid being labeled Islamophobic.

But where’s the justice for the tens of thousands of child victims?

On August 13th, 2019 CNBC reported, “FBI agents seized computers from wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands during a raid of the private island owned by the late accused sex trafficker. The footage shows that at least two computer desktops and an Apple computer were packaged and marked to be taken away from Little St. James island as part of the FBI probe.”

On December 7th, 2021 the UK Telegraph reported that, “Evidence from Jeffrey Epstein’s safe ‘went missing’ after FBI raid.”  Former U.S, Army Ranger and Special Forces Operator Tim Kennedy tweeted:

Does criminal how little the media has covered this case. It is criminal the effort to sweep this under the rug. Evidence from Jeffrey Epstein’s safe ‘went missing’ after FBI raid, court hears in Ghislaine Maxwell trial

— Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA) December 20, 2021

Great question Tim.

Why didn’t the media cover the Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking case with the same enthusiasm as they did the peaceful January 6th rally in Washington, D.C.? Why hasn’t the media investigated the FBI and what happened to the thousands of documents and videos on Epstein’s computers?

QUESTION: Why does a convicted sex trafficker get a pass from the FBI?

ANSWER: The names of those who were clients of Epstein and Maxwell weren’t Republicans!

You can bet that if it was any Republican, Trump supporter, Trump himself, or any of the Trump family on Epstein’s computers it would be a front page above the fold story on the New York Times and covered 24/7 by ABC, CBS, MSNC, CNN and on social media sites.

The Bottom Line

On December 30th, 2021 Tim Kennedy tweeted, “Prosecutors dropped a case against two jail guards. They made the decision on December 13, in the middle of Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial. It wasn’t made public until December 30. I want to know about every person Epstein and Maxwell serviced. A total coverup from the beginning.”

On June 26th, 2015 the Supreme Court of the United States after hearing the case Obergefell v. Hodges legalized same-sex marriage.

Today we have Catholic priests, bishops and even cardinals sodomizing little boys. We have cartels profiting from human sex trafficking, which includes underaged boys and girls, who are sold to bordellos and houses of prostitution for sex, including being sodomized.

We now have a “cultural war” against the traditional family and its primary “social justice jackhammer” is the normalization of sodomy. A mother and a father raising their biological children has been replaced with Peter Paul “Pete” Montgomery Buttigieg and his male partner appearing on an Amazon Prime video with his husband Chasten and their non-biological child.

In an April 11, 2016 Black Press USA column titled “Homosexuality Is the New Black ” Raynard Jackson wrote:

In order to have a fully functioning society, we must have some common baseline of beliefs that join us together, whether it’s a fraternity, a church, or a political party. Without this commonality, belonging to a group or a society is impossible.

We hold these trues to be self-evident: the Earth is round, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, Barack Obama is the president of the United States, and if you are born with a penis you are a male. If you are born with a vagina you are a female.

Oh-oh! These last two are going to get me in trouble. Now I will be called homophobic, hateful, un-Christian, a divider, not fit for public service, unfit for management in corporate America, etc., but the question is, “Why?”

That is the question. Why?

Why can’t we point out that sex is binary? Why can’t we point out the negatives of those who practice sodomy? Why are we allowing non-binary men to compete in women’s sports? Why are you labeled homophobic if you point these thing out?

Why can’t we point out that globally 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS in 2021?

Church Militant points out that, “Persons with same sex attractions deserve our respect and compassion. But the militant gay movement’s message that ‘gay’ is good is completely false. This lie is confusing society and hurting the individuals themselves.

We believe in hating the sin but loving the sinner. However, the myth that being “gay is good” is dangerous and debilitating to a culture. History tells us so.

The Bottom Line: Today the “C” in Clear stands for Censorship!

Soviet Era Inspired Agitprop Shows up in Washington, D.C.

By Dr. Rich Swier

The First Amendment is a beautiful thing. It allows even former Soviet Agitprop artists to show off their wares on the walls of Washington, D.C.

Agitprop refers to an intentional, vigorous promulgation of ideas. The term originated in Soviet Russia where it referred to popular media, such as literature, plays, pamphlets, films, and other art forms, with an explicitly political message in favor of communism.

This is fitting since Joe’s middle name is Beijing.

Somebody put up this incredible street art in DC over night.

Knowing DC it’ll be ripped down within hours. All must comply!

If you know the artist drop it in the replies!

— 🐺 (@LeighWolf) January 15, 2022

The Last Refuge reported:

Some brilliant, soviet era inspired agitprop showed up in Washington DC overnight highlighting the agenda of the current Joe Biden administration.

No-one knows who the artist is….

The artwork has a certain familiarity.





I love great agitprop.  This type of sand is very difficult for the regime to keep sweeping away….

The artist is unidentified for obvious reasons, but it looks like something Oleg would do.

We must agree that it looks like something Red Square would do.

TAKE ACTION: Support the ‘American Uncensored News Network’ — AUN-TV

By Conservative Commandos Radio Show

To all Patriots who are sick and tired of the liberal media that have total control of the broadcast industry!


We at AUN-TV want to break the NEAR TOTAL monopoly of ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, FOX and their distorted and fake reporting of the news and issues in America!  We patriots need to stop them in their tracks!

How can we do that?

We are raising money for equipment  to expand our broadcast TV network with 2 new stations.  These new stations will be part of the ever growing AUN-TV Network, which is providing conservative, faith based shows, hosts and producers with a forum to spread their right thinking ideas and issues with people who are only hearing the liberal slant on the direction our country is traveling.

Liberal media today cannot get enough of lying about Jan 6th and President Trump’s part in the “SO CALLED”  insurrection. Spreading lies about the Chinese flu and making Fauci a god that cannot be questioned.  Spreading the fear of climate change and how we must change every facet of our lives to prevent the earth from burning or freezing up.  Concocting the idea if you love America you must be a racist.  Allowing crime to explode across America.  Closing our schools. Bowing to the teachers unions who want to stay home, get paid and not teach students!

I could go on and on! I do not need to, you hear and see it each and every day!

What Americans need to hear is the truth! The voice of common sense! And that’s the role of AUN-TV. To provide a forum for “We The People”. To get the facts, opinions, views and messages of the conservative side out.

Will you join us in this effort?


Keep in mind, NO ONE here at AUN-TV is paid!

Every dime we bring in is going to pay our bills and to expand our network!  In fact many of our shows and host pay to further our efforts! All of us at AUN-TV donate our time!  Also, we never charge anyone to view our content!  There is no “pay wall” and “no VIP membership”.

We want everyone to be able to see our shows!


Our mission statement! For those who believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the freedom in which to express those core values, the AUN-TV and Conservative Commandos Radio Show believe that any person who listens to TV and talk radio should have a turn at expressing their opinions with open dialogue. A forum where individuals can exchange ideas and thoughts that can be heard among our Co-hosts, callers and guests.

Is This the End-Game of the Democrat Party? An All Out War Against Americans? thumbnail

Is This the End-Game of the Democrat Party? An All Out War Against Americans?

By Save America Foundation

I believe that the Democrat party, especially the extreme left that seems to be in control right now, is in its death throes. We are witnessing the painful ( for them ) demise of the worst domestic terrorist organization we have witnessed – ever in our history.

This evil administration under what is definitely the worse and most dangerous leadership, came into being with promises to unite a nation that was already pretty united and to stop the China virus! Of course, that was never the plan as they wanted to create a socialist nation filled with a brain washed proletariat that would depend on the state from cradle to grave. To create racism where there was none. To reach this lofty goal these traitors had a very tame and obedient main stream media ready to push the lies and the propaganda that had been so well planned for so long.

However, the ineptitude and the stupidity of the people that were involved forgot one thing. This nation has enough real Americans in it that would not just lie down and accept the end game as it was planned.

We watched as this administration from day one set out to destroy our constitutional republic from within. From a destructive energy agenda which destroyed high paying jobs and endangered our very security and one that rewarded our enemies by buying oil from them instead of using ours. Oil today is $85 a barrel and moving on up! Gone are those days of under $2 a gallon.

We watched as this administration embarrassed our nation and military in the most terrible withdrawal from Afghanistan. I am not here to talk about the rights and wrongs of that 20 year war and understand we needed to withdraw some day. However the military leadership under treasonous military leadership lied to our allies, our friends and our nation. They deliberately screwed it up thinking they could blame Trump which the tame media took up but it didn’t work. The world saw this administration for what it was. This includes our friends and our enemies. Our enemies in particular took notice and realized that instantly they could get away with what ever they wanted.

The military under Biden is like a toothless bulldog. If left to him and General Miley it will become a rainbow and woke organization filled with freaks like transgenders etc.

We are letting down Ukraine as it is being threatened by Russia.

We are letting down Taiwan which is being threatened by China.

We are helplessly watching our enemies fly new hypersonic missiles and test nuclear weapons.

We are allowing Iran to continue its nuclear weapons program which will destabilize the entire Middle East if it is allowed.

We are screwing over our allies like Israel who must feel they are on their own.

We have armed for free our enemy the Taliban with weapons and military hardware they couldn’t have dreamt about. We handed them the most secure airfield in the world, Baghran and now can only watch as the Chinese fill it and use it as a base of operations.

Now let’s look at inflation. Prices haven’t risen this high or fast for 40 years or so – and we haven’t seen the end of that! Trust me, recession and hyper inflation will follow if we allow this inept domestic terrorist organization, the New Socialist Democrat Party, to continue.

The border is not just porous. It is wide open. Enemies and criminals are pouring into this country, diseased and untested.

The supply train has been deliberately destroyed. Goods are piling up and this administration lies daily about how they have fixed the problem.

Covid is still totally rampant despite approximately 84% of adults being “vaccinated” and liberals are losing their minds, spewing hatred to cover their inadequacies.

Wages have risen exponentially but in no way are they even beginning to keep up with inflation. People are worse off one year into this usurpers reign and not only that, the groups worse off are the Hispanics and Blacks, the very groups Biden thought he had in the palm of his hands.


The tide is turning and these two groups have seen the result of the last election and buyers remorse is rampant. They are not buying the lies anymore.

Women who voted in large numbers for the mentally deranged treasonous pervert and thief in the Peoples House, are seeing the light and turning away.

People are learning daily that they cannot trust the MSM, that the China Virus has been greatly exaggerated, that the so called vaccine which is not a vaccine, is a con. It’s also dangerous. I ask you here, name me one vaccine that needs multiple shots and still enables you to catch, pass, be hospitalized and die from the very virus it’s supposed to save you from. Plus you cannot sue the pharmaceutical companies when the poison hurts or kills your! But hey, the big pharma is raking in billions of dollars in profit!! Yay!!

I could go on but you get the idea. Build back better is dead in the water. Voting and election changes are dead in the water. Their global warming agenda is dead in the water. This administration cannot pass anything. They are a lame duck administration which this year will be permanently crippled after the mid term elections when we slap these bastards down like the rabid animals they are.

Then we have serious work to do. We have to DRAIN THE SWAMP OF ALL FILTHY SLIMY SWAMP CREATURES. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS. We need to find them all, investigate them all, arrest and charge them all and sentence them to maximum sentences including death. They are traitors. Low down, lying, stinking traitors. By taking all their over inflated pensions and ill-gotten goods and possessions obtained by illegal methods and treasonous actions we can finance this just witch hunt. Fill those SuperMax prisons. Build more if needed. Fill those federal death row areas and get it done.

Radical? I don’t think so. These are evil people. They hate this country and have done all they can to destroy it, the middle class and our beloved military, law enforcement, economy, security, global position and standing. They have enriched themselves while doing all the above over the last 70 plus years.

Watch for more lies and actions as they use the media to keep us unfocused on their inability to run a country like the wrongful arrests of friends of mine like Stewart Rhodes, creator and leader of Oath Keepers, an organization I have been a member of since it’s inception. They are lying and exaggerating his part in the protests of January 6th and are unconstitutionally holding him and many others in prisons and jails with no bail and no rights, destroying lives and families as they try and lie about the extremist conservatives and Trumpists.

They are using information from encrypted information and then turning those words and wrongly manipulating them, to try prove guilt and make people believe that we are all right wing nut jobs, racists, homophones etc. The truth is that is the opposite. They are the racists and true enemies of we the people.

Remember, the safest communications is face to face but it is still good to use Signal and other encrypted sites. But understand the following.

The concept the US Military uses for encrypted communications is they expect the encryption to be broken. They believe that by the time the encryption is broken, that message will no longer have value.

Continue to use Signal, but understand 1) There are ways around the encryption; 2) The encryption can and will be broken; 3) Ensure the message will not have value when the encryption is broken; 4) Signal is still better for voice calls then not using Signal.

America. Gird your loins. Prepare to stand firm. We have work to do. It may be dangerous. It may be tedious. It may be difficult but if you want to leave anything good for your kids and their kids, it is time for patriots to stand up and do patriot stuff!

Sinema Doubles Down On Filibuster Support, Dealing Likely Fatal Blow to Dems’ Steal The Vote Bills

By The Geller Report

Conservatives – beware. Sinema is no conservative, she’s just not a lunatic.

Senator Manchin also announced on Thursday that he will not support a bill to weaken or end the filibuster. This combined with Biden’s defeat at the SCOTUS over COVID lockdowns, made Thursday the most humiliating day for the Biden Administration since Afghanistan.

BREAKING: Kyrsten Sinema: “Eliminating the 60 vote threshold on a party line with the thinnest of possible majorities to pass these bills that I support will not guarantee that we prevent demagogues from winning office.”

Sinema doubles down on filibuster support, dealing likely fatal blow to Dems’ election bills

Sinema is a longtime supporter of the filibuster

By Fox News, January 13, 2022

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday that she will not vote to weaken the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold, bucking her party leaders yet again and dealing a major blow to Democrats’ election reform effort.

The comments, which match Sinema’s long-held stance on the filibuster, are effectively the final nail in the coffin of Democrats’ longshot effort to pass two elections bills over unified Senate GOP opposition.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema, D-Ariz., said. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

She added: “But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues.”

The House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday morning combining both of those original pieces of legislation: The John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the Freedom to Vote Act. But it won’t get 60 votes in the Senate, which is split 50-50 on party lines.

Any changes to the filibuster would need all 50 Senate Democrats on board. With Sinema taking a hard stance in favor of the filibuster Thursday, it appears Democrats will not be able to get there.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema also said Thursday.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” she added. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”

Do Politicians Exhibit Wisdom – Understanding – Knowledge or Ignorance – Callousness – Stupidity? thumbnail

Do Politicians Exhibit Wisdom – Understanding – Knowledge or Ignorance – Callousness – Stupidity?

By Dr. Rich Swier

“Solomon and the wise men of Israel regarded wisdom, understanding, and knowledge as worthy pursuits in life. In fact, given the choice between wisdom and material wealth, they opted for wisdom, hands down. For them, clear thinking held the key to success in all areas of life.” – Pastor Chuck Swindoll

According to the Pew Research Center:

When it comes to religious affiliation, the 117th U.S. Congress looks similar to the previous Congress but quite different from Americans overall.

While about a quarter (26%) of U.S. adults are religiously unaffiliated – describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular” – just one member of the new Congress (Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz.) identifies as religiously unaffiliated (0.2%).

Nearly nine-in-ten members of Congress identify as Christian (88%), compared with two-thirds of the general public (65%). Congress is both more heavily Protestant (55% vs. 43%) and more heavily Catholic (30% vs. 20%) than the U.S. adult population overall.

[ … ]

Jewish members also make up a larger share of Congress than they do of the general public (6% vs. 2%).

Nearly all non-Christian members of Congress are Democrats.

There are currently 9 Democrats and 1 Independent in the U.S. Senate and 26 Democrats, 2 Republicans in the House of Representatives who are Jewish in the 117th Congress.

CLICK HERE: To view a Pew infographic on The Religious Makeup of the 117th Congress.

Let’s look at where we as a people got our definitions for wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

  • WISDOM: For the Hebrews, wisdom (hakam) and its derivatives are the most commonly used terms denoting intelligence.
  • UNDERSTANDING: The Hebrew term for “understanding” is tebuna, which denotes intelligence or discernment.
  • KNOWLEDGE: The Hebrew term for knowledge is based on the verb yada, “to know.”

QUESTION: Are members of Congress exhibiting wisdom (hakam), understanding (tebuna) and knowledge (yada)?

Do members of Congress when “given the choice between wisdom and material wealth,” opting for wisdom?

Or are members of Congress driven by ignorance, callousness and stupidity?

It’s the Cultural War in America, stupid!

Solomon and the wise men of Israel prized wisdom, understanding, and knowledge as crucial to living prosperously, safely, and effectively. Even so, they recognized the limits of human thinking:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart

And do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;

Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. (3:5–7)

Is the God of Abraham alive and well amongst the members of Congress? Or have they succumbed to the glitter of gold and power that they wield?

Has God, like Elvis, left the halls of Congress?

Writer, author and an emerging Australian voice on culture and the Christian faith Kurt Mahlburg in his November 5th, 2021 column “It’s the culture war, stupid!” wrote:

Elections that follow a Presidential race routinely trend against the party in the White House, so Republicans were expected to do well in the assorted votes that took place around the country this week.

But no one quite expected Tuesday’s results.

[ … ]

So whence the red tsunami?

If there is a single takeaway from this week’s results, it is that American voters are far more engaged in the culture wars now than in any past election. While the economy and Covid mandates were also on the table, the role of parents in education was a leading concern. This was especially true in Virginia.

Republicans are looking to education as a winning issue ahead of next year’s midterm elections after putting it front and center propelled the party to a clear victory in Virginia on Tuesday,” reported The Hill.

The New York Times was even more blunt: “After Terry McAuliffe stumbled to defeat … a mild suggestion seems in order: Democrats probably need a new way to talk about progressive ideology and education.”

Virginia has been ground zero for a nationwide showdown between parents and school boards. For parents, the issues have been at least twofold: the sexualisation of their children through transgender bathroom policies and curriculum; and critical race theory which is souring race relations, especially in urban centres. [Emphasis added]

With Biden, who is only our second Catholic president, tanking in poll after poll it appears that his policies are not in favor with the people. Many argue that Biden, and Democrats in general, tend to display Ignorance – Callousness – Stupidity.

The Bottom Line

As Americans look at empty shelves, prices for gasoline, meat and food rising at an alarming rate, we remember the retort of Bill Clinton, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

Add to this “it’s the cultural war stupid” and you have a double whammy working against Democrats as we approach the mid-term elections on November 8th, 2022.

Rather than wanting one party to win and other lose, I would rather that all members of Congress get back to policies based upon Wisdom – Understanding – Knowledge.

Don’t you?

Remember these words of wisdom:

How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!, And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver. (16:16)

Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you. (2:11)

The lips of the righteous feed many,  But fools die for lack of understanding. (10:21)

Understanding is a fountain of life to one who has it,  But the discipline of fools is folly. (16:22)

Howard Dean: Rightwing Zealot Supreme Court is a ‘Threat’ to America thumbnail

Howard Dean: Rightwing Zealot Supreme Court is a ‘Threat’ to America

By Discover The Networks

Thursday on MSNBC’s The Beat, former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean said that the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for large private companies is a threat to America because millions will die.

“The disturbing thing about this, of course, is in their right-wing ideological zealotry, they have substituted their judgment for public health judgment, which they’re totally unqualified to do,” Dean claimed about the Supreme Court justices. “They did the same in the abortion case in Mississippi, where they look like they are headed that way, where they substitute their judgment for the judgment of doctors and patients. This is an ideologically-motivated court.”

Democrats have no problem with an ideologically-motivated court, unless it’s the wrong ideology.

He continued, “This situation is going to kill probably more Americans than died certainly in World War II. Maybe even, if we keep going at this pace, kill more Americans than died in the Civil War, which is the war that did more damage to this country than any other. The court is not helpful. They’re not using common sense.”

This is typical fear-mongering from the perpetually-unhinged Dean. Pandemic mandates have done nothing to stem the spread of COVID-19. More patients are dying of it in areas where lockdowns are more draconian and where strict vaccine mandates are in place, than in areas more committed to liberty and choice.

Dean added, “The Mississippi decision, the voting rights decision, the Citizens United where corporations are now people and can put as much money as they want into political stuff and in many cases not be found out, the court is a threat to the United States of America. This is actually a threat to individual lives. There will be a great many of them, in seven figures, as a result of this.”

Translation: the Supreme Court is a mass-murdering threat to America when it doesn’t vote the way radicals like Dean want it to.

Howard Dean

65 Known Connections

In December 2012, Dean appeared on MSNBC and said the following about Republicans:

“The fact of the matter is you cannot peddle hate of immigrants, gays and lesbians, and women by saying that God’s will was to make women pregnant when they were raped. You can’t — if that’s what you believe, if that’s what conservative principles are, you might as well go someplace else because this country has not bought it anymore. We’re done. The argument is over and these guys are going to have to change their philosophy, not just their ground game …They can win if they change themselves. They have to stop beating up on gays, stop beating up on immigrants, stop beating up on Muslims, and understand what America is really about. And it is really about opportunity. And the young people, who I think voted 65% for Obama, they would vote Republican if it was just on fiscal grounds. But they’re not going to vote Republican when Republicans are preaching hate with the people they grew up and who are their friends. That’s just not going to happen.”
