Abolish the Family, Enslave the People

Marxists Want To Abolish Family

The international tribunal investigating the communist Khmer Rouge wrapped up its work after 16 years having convicted three people in connection with the slaughter of 1.7 million Cambodians to build the perfect communist society.

  • Nothing quite says ‘socialism cares about the masses’ more than killing people who wear eyeglasses and getting 12-year-olds to machine-gun their parents
  • The Khmer Rouge were not ‘tyrants’.   They were messianic – they wanted a perfect society and were willing to kill a third of their population to get it
  • “ …  the Khmer Rouge tortured and killed people by hitting their head with a hoe, or hurling the children on to tree trunks to not waste their bullets. But to me, the majority of the people in those days died of starvation,” he says…. Twice a day, a small tin of rice would be split between 10 people. A lot of people ate leaves, rats, insects or snakes to stay alive.
  • yet another socialist-engineered famine (the Holodomor, Great Leap Forward, etc.)

Venezuela defends the indefensible, rejects U.N. human rights report detailing Maduro regime’s torture and possible crimes against humanity

  • Arbitrary detention, electric shock, asphyxiation – this is real socialism, the self-proclaimed Socialism of the 21st Century

In Venezuela, orders to brutal security service to silence dissent come from the very top

Years of burrowing in Queens pays off for socialists; now hold local, state, and federal offices

  • Hey socialists!  What good is ‘economic equality’ if you can’t speak your mind and you get imprisoned if you do?  And don’t give me that ‘democratic socialism’ nonsense.  It’s a unicorn.  It’s never existed and never will.  You can see how authoritarian the American Left is becoming – censoring people, persecuting political enemies, etc. – and we still live in a constitutional Republic.  And these are the people you’re counting on to usher in ‘democratic socialism’?  Hah!

Democratic Socialists of America-tied Rashida Tlaib collected $100,000 in rent while calling for Congress to abolish rent during the pandemic (typical socialist hypocrisy)

The Communist Party lies to the people and doesn’t give them religious freedom, which is a basic human right,” he said. “Many Chinese are waking up. The Chinese Communist Party has caused millions of deaths. The Chinese people should have quit the Party years ago!”

Trump Sues CNN thumbnail

Trump Sues CNN

By The Daily Caller

Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against CNN, claiming the outlet defamed him and did so out of fear he will run for president again in 2024.

The suit, which was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, argues CNN has tried to use its influence to smear Trump politically and prevent him from launching a bid for re-election.

The suit alleges Trump has been a “long-time critic” of CNN, “not because CNN does a bad job of reporting the news, but because CNN seeks to create the news.”

“CNN’s campaign of dissuasion in the form of libel and slander against the Plaintiff has only escalated in recent months as CNN fears the Plaintiff will run for president in 2024,” the suit reads. “As a part of its concerted effort to tilt the political balance to the Left, CNN has tried to taint the Plaintiff with a series of ever-more scandalous, false, and defamatory labels of ‘racist,’ ‘Russian lackey,’ ‘insurrectionist,’ and ultimately ‘Hitler.’”

Trump is seeking $475 million in punitive damages, according to the suit.

Trump notified the outlet in July of his intention to sue for “repeated defamatory statements.” Trump also warned he would sue other outlets he alleges have “defamed and defrauded the public” about the 2020 presidential election results.

“I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me,” Trump said in July. “I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 election. I will never stop fighting for the truth and for the future of our country.”

The Democrats Have Lost Their Minds on Criminal Justice Reform thumbnail

The Democrats Have Lost Their Minds on Criminal Justice Reform

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

The Sunday talk shows say crime is becoming a campaign issue in the upcoming elections.  It’s easy to see why.  People don’t feel safe wherever Democrats are in control.  If crime isn’t an issue for you yet, let me ask you some questions:

Why would anyone visit New York City?  A tourist from Maryland was slashed in the face and robbed in Times Square.  That’s what happens when you get rid of cash bail laws, as I’ve mentioned in previous commentaries.  There are countless stories about criminals being let go without having to post bail in New York, only to reoffend, sometimes within hours of being released.  New York also recently made it easier to get out on parole and stay out even if there are parole violations.  Crime is way up, especially in wealthier neighborhoods – by as much as 60 to 80 percent this year.  Bail reform has emboldened the criminals and city residents and tourists alike are paying the price.

Speaking of parole, the parole board in Democrat-controlled Wisconsin has run amok, freeing hundreds of convicted killers early.

But here’s my next question:  Why would anyone buy a house in Illinois?  Under a new state law, your front lawn will soon in effect become public property and the homeless can camp there any time they feel like it.  The police will not arrest them for trespass or even ask them to move.  The police will only write a ticket and leave.  My sisters live in Illinois.  They both own houses.  They’re both leaving the state.  The same new law ends cash bail after the 1st of the year for aggravated assault, second-degree murder, and other crimes.  Hundreds of defendants awaiting trial will be released.  The definition of insanity would be expecting any different result than what’s happening in New York City, but that’s the Democrats for you.

Next question: Why would anyone own a shop in California?  Theft under $950 has been reclassified from a felony to a misdemeanor.  Critics say theft and shoplifting has increased all over the state as a result.  They also say the police won’t even show up any more for shoplifting under $950 or, if they do, the shoplifters simply fail to appear in court without any consequences.  Not only that, the shoplifters can sue the store if the staff tries to stop a shoplifting-in-progress.

Why would anyone in Pennsylvania vote for John Fetterman – the guy who had a stroke and is still running for Senate.  He was caught on video saying he wants to let one-third of the criminals in prison out on the streets because, he says, everyone will be safer or better off that way.  That’s delusional.  But he put his money where his mouth is when he was on the state’s Board of Pardons where he voted to put lots of murderers back out on the streets.  Then, as Lieutenant Governor, he appointed a woman as secretary of the board who wants to “disarm the police”.  Delusions have consequences.

I also want to know when the Democrats will run out of crazy ideas for criminal justice reform.  Defund the police – remember that one?  Several cities found it completely unworkable and moved to re-fund the police as I’ve noted in previous commentaries.  In fact, the track record of this crazy idea is so bad, Democrats in Virginia and elsewhere are trying to run away from their previous support for it.  Too bad they’re all caught on video saying what they said.  Now the Democrats want to give free crack pipes to drug addicts.  The idea didn’t die when it was found out the Biden administration was supporting it and denied it.  But why do you think the Democrats’ next crazy idea is going to work out any better than their last crazy idea?

Here’s my last question: Why would anybody vote for the Democrats?  They’ve put some very bad ideas into practice, lately, where they are in power.  Defund the police, throw out half the criminal code, praise prosecutors who won’t prosecute, let everybody out of prison – how crazy can you get?

There is always criminal justice reform.  The tinkering never stops.  I know, because I was a criminal defense attorney in the 1980s.  Reform was ongoing then and has never stopped since.  The pendulum is always swinging between leniency and public safety.  The problem now is that the Democrats have gone off the deep end, and instituted the wildest reforms imaginable.  The pendulum will inevitably swing back in the other direction to public safety and common sense.  It always does in criminal justice reform, and the upcoming election is not too soon to start.

Cornell University Physician: ‘I Was Wrong about Covid Vaccine Mandates’ thumbnail

Cornell University Physician: ‘I Was Wrong about Covid Vaccine Mandates’

By Foundation for Economic Education (FEE)

Scientists and public health officials must act more humbly and recognize the limits of their knowledge, writes Dr. Paul Fenyves.


The great martial artist Bruce Lee reputedly said that all mistakes are forgivable—if one has the courage to admit the mistake.

Paul Fenyves, a primary care physician in New York City who specializes in internal medicine, seems to have learned this lesson. Fenyves, a primary care doctor at Weill Cornell Medicine, recently admitted he was wrong to support vaccine mandates.

“I was initially supportive of Covid vaccine mandates in the Fall of 2021. At the time, I was told that Covid vaccines don’t only protect the individual receiving the vaccine, but they also benefit the community by reducing spread of the virus,” Fenyves wrote on the Substack Sensible Medicine.

Convinced that mandatory vaccination would create a “wall of immunity” that would bring the pandemic to an end more quickly, Fenyves said it seemed “reasonable to prioritize societal welfare over individual autonomy,” noting that early clinical trials of Pfizer’s vaccine were shown to stop 95 percent of infections.

“Surely a vaccine that prevents almost all infections would halt community spread, right? Wrong,” he writes. “Perhaps there was a time when Covid vaccines could significantly reduce community transmission, but that time was short-lived, and the virus quickly evolved and learned to evade vaccine-induced immunity.”

For Fenyves, his awakening moment came in December 2021, when Portugal experienced a massive surge of Covid despite a vaccination rate of more than 90 percent.

Fenyves concedes there are other reasons one could support mandatory vaccination even if it doesn’t reduce community spread, noting that some contend forced vaccination is moral because it’s done “for their own good.”

“I find these arguments to be weak justifications for violating an individual’s autonomy and mandating a medical intervention,” he writes. “Furthermore, these arguments are completely inadequate when applied to young people, whose risk of hospitalization from Covid is low, and whose likelihood of benefiting from vaccination is similarly low.”

Some may argue that Fenyves is right about vaccine mandates, but for the wrong reasons.

Vinay Prasad, an associate professor in University of California, San Francisco’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, argues vaccine mandates would be wrong even if there was a community benefit because the social costs are too high.

“My conclusion was always that the societal harm of mandates far exceeds any benefit, and as such I always opposed mandates,” writes Prasad in an introduction to Fenyves’s article.

Others might wonder why it took Fenyves until December 2021 to recognize he was wrong about vaccine mandates. Put aside for a moment that vaccine mandates violate bodily autonomy and the non-aggression principle, which makes them inherently immoral.

As early as August 2021 it was clear that “vaccine breakthroughs” were quite common and that naturally immunity conferred powerful protection against Covid. Why was it not until December 2021 that Fenyves realized he was wrong about vaccine mandates?

These are fair points, but they should not overshadow the larger lesson Fenyves is sharing, which is that scientists and public health officials must act more humbly with their immense power and recognize the limits of their knowledge.

“Those in the medical community who, like me, argued that vaccines should be mandated to protect the community should feel chastened,” writes Fenyves. “When considering mandating vaccines in the future, we should proceed with humility, acknowledging that our knowledge is far from perfect and our truths are often transitory.”

Two words in the last sentence are incredibly important: knowledge and humility.

These same two words are found in F.A. Hayek’s famous 1974 Nobel Prize speech, in which he warned against scientists and planners acting on “a pretense of knowledge.” Instead of recognizing the limitations of knowledge in an infinitely complex world, Hayek saw modern humans “dizzy with success” over the marvels of modern science, which had convinced them they possessed enough knowledge to engineer society effectively.

“The curious task of economics,” he famously wrote in The Fatal Conceit, “is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”

The antidote to this fatal conceit—which Hayek warned leads to “grave consequences”—is humility.

T.S. Eliot once observed that humility “is the most difficult of all virtues to achieve,” and a lack of it is what lurked beneath the deadly collectivist schemes of the twentieth century, from Stalin’s Five Year Plans to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and beyond.

The “fatal striving to control society” is born of arrogance, Hayek understood. And it was this arrogance that led public health officials and politicians to decide they had enough knowledge to make life-and-death decisions for others during the pandemic, to decide what they had to put into their bodies.

Fenyves is right that a healthy dose if humility is in order, and that the knowledge we possess is far from perfect.

If we fail to learn this lesson, the consequences could be even worse the next time government officials attempt to prevent a crisis from happening.

Bald, Golden Eagle Deaths Permitted Under New U.S. Wind Energy, Power Line Rules thumbnail

Bald, Golden Eagle Deaths Permitted Under New U.S. Wind Energy, Power Line Rules

By The Geller Report

How many pipelines and energy projects were stopped dead in their tracks over some innocuous environmental concern or obscure fish “endangerment.”

By: The Oregonian, September 30, 2022:

The Biden administration has proposed a new permitting program for wind energy turbines, power lines and other projects that kill eagles, amid growing concern among scientists that the rapid expansion of renewable energy in the U.S. West could harm golden eagle populations now teetering on decline.

The Fish and Wildlife Service program announced Thursday is meant to encourage companies to work with officials to minimize harm to golden and bald eagles.

It’s also aimed at avoiding any slowdown in the growth of wind power as an alternative to carbon-emitting fossil fuels — a key piece of President Joe Biden’s climate agenda. It comes after several major utilities have been federally prosecuted in recent years for killing large numbers of eagles without permits.

The federal government already issues permits to kill eagles. But Thursday’s proposal calls for new permits tailored to wind-energy projects, power line networks and the disturbance of breeding bald eagles and bald eagle nests.

Fish and Wildlife Service Director Martha Williams said the new program would provide “multiple pathways to obtain a permit” while also helping conserve eagles, which she described as a key responsibility for the agency.

Bald eagle numbers have quadrupled since 2009 to about 350,000 birds. There are only about about 40,000 golden eagles, which need much larger areas to survive and are more inclined to have trouble with humans.

The number of wind turbines nationwide more than doubled over the past decade to almost 72,000, according to U.S. Geological Survey data, with development overlapping prime golden eagle territory in states including Wyoming, Montana, California, Washington and Oregon.

In April, a subsidiary of the Florida-based utility industry giant NextEra Energy pleaded guilty in federal court in Wyoming to criminal violations of wildlife protection laws after its wind turbines killed more than 100 golden eagles in eight states. It was the third conviction of a major wind company for killing eagles in a decade.

Federal officials won’t divulge how many eagles are reported killed by wind farms, saying it’s sensitive law enforcement information.

Nationwide, 34 permits in place last year authorized companies to “take” 170 golden eagles — meaning that many birds could be killed by turbines or lost through impacts on nests or habitat, according to permitting data obtained by The Associated Press. More than 200 permits were in place to allow the killing of 420 bald eagles, according to the data.

For each loss, companies are responsible for ensuring at least one eagle death is avoided somewhere else.

Illegal shootings are the biggest cause of death for golden eagles, killing about 700 annually, according to federal estimates. More than 600 die annually in collisions with cars, wind turbines and power lines; about 500 annually are electrocuted; and more than 400 are poisoned.

EXCLUSIVE: How Bill Gates Bought The Republican Wave of 2022

By: Troy Smith, Launch Liberty, September 30, 2022:

Many people within the United States are hoping for a Republican takeover of Congress in 2022. Most Republicans feel that the party is in a much better position after ousting RINOs like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

Cheney, for instance, was the #3 Republican in the House of Representatives. She served in the position of Conference Chair. She was replaced in 2021 by New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik.

Stefanik had the backing of many within the ‘MAGA’ movement. She was even endorsed by Donald Trump. He hosted a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser for her back in January. He was quoted as saying that Stefanik would ‘one day be President’.

Upon investigation of published federal campaign finance data, Launch Liberty has discovered that Stefanik has taken a lot of money from Billionaire Bill Gates.

In fact, Gates has been funding Stefanik for a number of years. As Stefanik ascended through the Republican Party, Bill Gates began to donate to her re-election campaigns. Now she has a real chance at possibly becoming Speaker of the House.

The fact that Stefanik, lauded by Conservatives everywhere, received money from Bill Gates got me asking a lot more questions. Why would somebody focused on vaccine mandates and radical climate change policies be funding top members of the Republican party?

Who else was Bill Gates funding? The answer that I discovered was startling.

Gates has purchased a massive piece of the 2022 Republican Ticket. There are so many Republicans that have received money from Gates for this 2022 election cycle that I found it necessary to list them, by State, later on in this article.

For starters, Gates funded the campaign of RINO Dan Crenshaw, along with donating to his PAC America Reloaded.

CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL LIST OF REPUBLICANS FUNDED BY BILL GATES

Is it possible for us to trust a Republican slate that is so financially influenced by Billionaire Bill Gates? What does it say about the integrity of those within our own party?

There is a reason why Conservative principles are never actually implemented within our policies. It is because our elections are being purchased.

MADMAN: Newsom Signs Bill to Allow ‘Castration’ of Minors from Other States Without Parental Consent

By The Geller Report

The Democrats war on the family, the basic building block of civilization, is part of their war on G-d. This is a deep state culture that is embracing degeneracy, depression and death.

Eliminating parental authority, paves their way to absolute control and autocracy. The Democrats war on the family, the basic building block of civilization, is part of their war on G-d.

The case against this horrendous surgery is a whole other matter. Ten to 15 years after surgical reassignment, the suicide rate of those who had undergone sex-reassignment surgery rose to 20 times that of comparable peers.

BREAKING: Newsom signs bill to allow minors from other states to receive medical gender transitions without parental consent

Newsom’s signature on the the bill, SB 107, comes nearly a month after the California legislature passed State Senator Scott Wiener’s bill, which was introduced in 2021.

By: Hannah Nightingale, Post Millennial, Sep 30, 2022:

On Thursday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law a piece of legislation that will designate the state as a sanctuary for children and teens seeking medicalized gender transitions.

Newsom’s signature on the bill, SB 107, comes nearly a month after the California legislature passed State Senator Scott Wiener’s bill, which was introduced in 2021.

The bill allows families or individual minors who traveled to the state for the purpose of these medical procedures to be safe from out-of-state authorities acting on subpoenas, warrants, and child custody issues if the minor was brought into the state for procedures like surgical gender reassignments or the prescribing of cross-sex hormones.

The bill would also “prohibit law enforcement agencies from making, or intentionally participating in, the arrest of an individual pursuant to an out-of-state arrest warrant based on another state’s law against receiving or allowing a child to receive gender-affirming health care.”

If a child comes into the state by themselves, the bill states that “A court of this state has temporary emergency jurisdiction if the child is present in this state and the child has been abandoned or it is necessary for an emergency to protect the child because the child, or a sibling or parent of the child, is subjected to, or threatened with, mistreatment or abuse, or because the child has been unable to obtain gender-affirming health care or gender-affirming mental health care.”

In addition, the bill that the state will not honor or enforce “A law of another state that authorizes a state agency to remove a child from their parent or guardian based on the parent or guardian allowing their child to receive gender-affirming health care” if a case is pending in California courts.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Newsom commended the bill during its signing.

“In California, we believe in equality and acceptance. We believe that no one should be prosecuted or persecuted for getting the care they need — including gender-affirming care,” Newsom said. “Parents know what’s best for their kids, and they should be able to make decisions around the health of their children without fear. We must take a stand for parental choice.”

New GOP bills attack the raging border crisis while Biden sits on his hands thumbnail

New GOP bills attack the raging border crisis while Biden sits on his hands

By Federation for American Immigration Reform

While President Joe Biden continues to ignore and even encourage the raging crisis on the southern border, some principled lawmakers in Washington continue to valiantly fight what has been an uphill battle. Four Republicans from four different states have recently introduced legislation to attack different aspects of the crisis. These are the true “root causes” Vice President Kamala Harris is supposed to be addressing, and FAIR wholeheartedly supports each bill. We will explore them here.

Most recently, on September 27, Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) and Representative Troy Nehls (R-Texas-22) jointly introduced S. 4964 / H.R. 9013, the Justice for Angel Families Act, in their respective chambers. The bill would accomplish two important objectives: extend eligibility for crime-victim grants to the families of those killed by illegal aliens, and re-establish the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office at the Department of Homeland Security. First created by a Trump Executive Order in April 2017, the VOICE office was converted into the “Victims Engagement and Services Line” in June 2021 by the Biden administration and lost its focus on immigration-related crime. This bill would give the office a mandate to “provide proactive, timely, and professional services to victims of crimes committed by aliens who are inadmissible…deportable…or otherwise unlawfully present in the United States, and to the family members of such victims.” Upon introducing the bill, Senator Marshall said, “Congressman Nehls and I are introducing this legislation to restore our angel families’ dignity and build on the support they received through the VOICE Office, which was disgracefully dismantled by the Biden Administration.”

On September 22, Representative Kat Cammack (R-Fla.-03) introduced H.R. 8952, the Justified Action for Securing Our Nation (JASON) Act. The idea and name for the bill came from a heroic Border Patrol agent whom the Congresswoman met on one of several trips to the southern border. It amends Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to extend to the Secretary of Homeland Security the power to suspend immigration for up to 60 days, with Congressional notification, and prescribe specific conditions under which such a suspension may be imposed. Under current law, the President already enjoys the power to suspend immigration indefinitely, but given this administration’s penchant for open borders and lax enforcement, we have little confidence Biden would wield it. Upon releasing the bill, Congresswoman Cammack said, “This bill holds the Secretary [of Homeland Security] accountable by providing him with the authority to shut down the border to protect our national security and deliver relief to the hundreds of CBP agents who are doing their best to hold the line in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.”

On the same day, Representative Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.-05) introduced H.R. 8951, the Ending Catch and Release Act, which would require illegal aliens to be detained or expelled pending the outcome of their claim in immigration court. With this legislation, no longer would we see millions set free to disappear into American society – many without a court date at all. In FY2019, nearly half of asylum-seekers released failed to even show up for their hearing – likely because they know their claim is bogus – and this rate will soar given the expansion of catch-and-release under Biden. Congressman Biggs and the 13 original co-sponsors of his legislation understand the danger of these policies and FAIR commends them for acting to stop it. As Biggs said upon release of his bill, “we must maintain operational control of the southern border and this legislation gets us closer to that.”

FAIR urges swift passage of each of the commonsense measures above as part of an all-encompassing approach to securing the border, fortifying our interior enforcement, and making American communities safe to live, work, and play.

This is shocking news to most Americans that the nation’s largest teachers’ union is promoting such material to America’s children.

“It All Started with Obama: Barack Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Pushed Books that Encouraged Children to Meet Adults at Gay Bars for Sex”>But this trend of perversion did not start during the Joe Biden regime. Back in January 2010, The Gateway Pundit reported on Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings. “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings and his organization GLSEN was encouraging children to meet adults in gay bars for sex. From our 2010 report: This story just gets freakier and weirder and the fact that the mainstream media completely ignores this dangerous man working in the Office of Safe and Drug-free Schools makes the story even more scandalous. You’d think the AP could peel away a few of its reporters from Going Rogue to investigate this radical czar. This avoidance by the democratic-media complex won’t keep us from reporting the truth. Our goal of protecting children is greater than our desire to protect a political party. Kevin Jennings’ was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) until he left his post in 2008. GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books for children that the radical organization believes all kids should be reading. The books on the list promote all kinds of radical ideas from child rape, to first graders having sex to the joys of prostitution. Recently it was discovered that these books were not only on GLSEN’s reading list but that Kevin Jennings personally promoted several of these books during his career. One of the books he promoted encouraged children to go to gay bars for sex with adults to see if they like it.

Mass Resistance Blog reported:

Jennings had recommended these books himself in his 1994 high school reader Becoming Visible (published by porn publisher Alyson Books). On p. 278 in his Questions/Activities section for Chapter 17, he wrote:

15. Other resources for reading are Bennett Singer’s Growing Up Gay, Ann Heron’s One Teenager in Ten: Writings by Gay and Lesbian Youth, Aaron Frick’s Reflections of a Rock Lobster: A Story of Growing Up Gay, and Paul Monette’s Becoming a Man. Films include Robert King’s The Disco Years and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, based on Jeanette Winterson’s autobiographical novel.

These questionable books (haven’t looked at the films yet…) have been described by Linda Harvey in 2002 (also here), NARTH (late 1990s), and more recently at Gateway Pundit/BigGovernment.com (Dec. 2009)…

Soros Wins $41M Contract from Biden to Help Illegal Aliens Evade Deportation

By The Geller Report

What next? Iran’s Supreme Leader appointed to Office on Violence Against Women?

The man who told Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes that “the happiest days of his life” was collaborating with the Nazis is running a shadow government here in the United States.

Soros should be banned. He is a hostile foreign actor We must pass a “Stop Soros” bill like Hungary did. Soros presents a grave dangerous to the democratic process.

Report: Soros Wins $41M Contract from Biden to Help Illegal Aliens Evade Deportation

By Truth Press, September 29, 2022:

A non-governmental organization (NGO), with financial links to billionaire George Soros, has won a $41 million federal contract from President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to help illegal aliens evade deportation from the United States.

The Acacia Center for Justice, an NGO with financial ties to the Soros-linked Vera Institute of Justice, scored a contract from Biden’s DOJ to provide “legal services” to border crossers and illegal aliens after they are released into the U.S. interior in the hopes of staying permanently.

Fox News’s Joe Schoffstall reports:

The Biden administration awarded $41 million in taxpayer-backed government contracts to a new liberal nonprofit working to help illegal immigrants fight deportation amid the escalating border crisis, Fox News Digital has discovered. [Emphasis added].

The Acacia Center for Justice, a Washington, D.C.,-based nonprofit born from a partnership between the Vera Institute of Justice and Capital Area Immigrants’ Rights (CAIR), has received six “legal services” contracts from the Department of Justice that carried start dates of Sept. 1, according to records. [Emphasis added]

The multimillion-dollar contracts began just months after the under-the-radar nonprofit received a July 29 determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service, which stated the group’s effective date of tax exemption was Dec. 29, 2021. [Emphasis added]

The Soros-linked Vera Institute of Justice, as Breitbart News previously reported, was recently awarded a $172 million contract from Biden’s DOJ to do the same work — help illegal aliens evade deportation from the U.S.

In 2018, the Vera Institute of Justice was previously awarded $310 million by the Obama administration to help Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) avoid deportation.

The latest estimates reveal that the Biden administration, from February 2021 to August 2022, has released at least 1.35 million border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities — a foreign population larger than the resident populations of Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Delaware, Rhode Island, and Montana.

Italy Election: Wealthiest Voted Left, Working and Middle Voted Right thumbnail

Italy Election: Wealthiest Voted Left, Working and Middle Voted Right

By The Geller Report

Just like America!

Not surprising because these out-of-touch elitists don’t have to live under their tyrannical, soul crushing, fiscally crippling, morally corrupt policies.

Italy Election: Wealthiest Voted Left, Working and Middle Voted Right

By: Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart News, September 29, 2022:

Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy were the most popular party among workers and the middle class in last weekend’s election, while the wealthiest Italians, along with university graduates, were more likely to vote for left parties.

The Brothers of Italy (FdI) came first in last weekend’s elections with 26 per cent of the vote, winning nearly six million more votes than in the previous election in 2018, and according to a breakdown of voting by the firm Ipsos, the party managed to secure just over 30 per cent of the votes of lower-middle-class people amid strong numbers across all income ranges.

Among upper-middle-class people and university graduates, the left-wing Democrats were the most popular party, followed by Meloni’s FdI, the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera reports.

Nando Pagnoncelli, the head of Ipsos, commented on the breakdown of the voting saying, “These elections, even more than the previous ones, have shown how the traditional reference groups of each party have disappeared” and noted that among workers the Democratic Party,  the traditional left-wing party in Italy, had come in fourth place behind the FdI, the Five Star Movement and Matteo Salvini’s League.

While Meloni is likely to become Italy’s first-ever female Prime Minister, the number of female voters who voted for her party was slightly lower than the number of male supporters according to the analysis.

The data comes just days after it was revealed that the FdI and the centre-right coalition had broken through the so-called “red wall” of traditionally left-wing areas in regions like Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna, beating Democratic candidates in areas that have been the heartland of the left in Italy for decades.

The centre-right coalition won a total of 29 single-member constituencies in the former “red wall” areas and three of the five single-member constituencies for the Italian Senate……

First Openly Trans Army Officer Charged in Spy Plot to Give U.S. Military Info to Russia thumbnail

First Openly Trans Army Officer Charged in Spy Plot to Give U.S. Military Info to Russia

By The Geller Report

The very definition of switching teams.

Johns Hopkins anesthesiologist and husband, an Army Officer, federally indicted for trying to give medical information about members of the military and their families to Russia government

Jamie Lee Henry and Anna Gabrielian face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

By B91, 1September 29, 2022:

Baltimore, Maryland – A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Anna Gabrielian, age 36, and her husband, Jamie Lee Henry, age 39, both of Rockville, Maryland, with conspiracy and for the disclosure of individually identifiable health information (“IIHI”), related to their efforts to assist Russia in connection with the conflict in Ukraine. The indictment was returned on September 28, 2022 and unsealed today upon the arrest of the defendants.

Gabrielian is scheduled to have initial appearance at 11:30 a.m. today, in U.S. District Court in Baltimore before U.S. Magistrate Judge Brendan A. Hurson. Henry is also expected to have an initial appearance today, although a time has not yet been set.

The indictment was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek L. Barron and Special Agent in Charge Thomas J. Sobocinski of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office.

As stated in the indictment, Gabrielian is an anesthesiologist and worked at Medical Institution 1, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Henry, a Major in the United States Army, who held a Secret-level security clearance, is Gabrielian’s husband and a doctor. During the time of the alleged conspiracy, Henry worked as a staff internist stationed at Fort Bragg, the home of the Army’s XVIII Airborne Corps, headquarters of the United States Army Special Operations Command, and the Womack Army Medical Center.

According to the eight-count indictment, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to cause harm to the United States by providing confidential health information of Americans associated with the United States government and military to Russia. Specifically, the indictment alleges that beginning on August 17, 2022, Gabrielian and Henry conspired to provide IIHI related to patients at Medical Institution 1 and at Fort Bragg to an individual they believed to be working for the Russian government in order to demonstrate the level of Gabrielian’s and Henry’s access to IIHI of Americans; their willingness to provide IIHI to the Russian government; and the potential for the Russian government to gain insights into the medical conditions of individuals associated with the United States government and military in order to exploit this information.

Gabrielian and Henry met with an individual they believed to be associated with the Russian government, but who was, in fact, a Federal Bureau of Investigation Undercover Agent (“UC”), in order to convey to the UC their commitment to aid Russia, and to discuss ways in which they could help the Russian government. Gabrielian told the UC that she had previously reached out to the Russian embassy by email and phone, offering Russia her and her husband’s assistance. Gabrielian told the UC that, although Henry knew of Gabrielian’s interaction with the Russian Embassy, she never mentioned Henry’s name to the Russian Embassy. Gabrielian wanted to make sure Henry could deny any knowledge of her actions. On August 17, 2022, Gabrielian met with the UC at a hotel in Baltimore. During that meeting, Gabrielian told the UC she was motivated by patriotism toward Russia to provide any assistance she could to Russia, even if it meant being fired or going to jail. Gabrielian proposed potential cover stories for meeting the UC and stressed the need for “plausible deniability” in the event she was confronted by American authorities about meeting with the UC. Gabrielian also told the UC that, as a military officer, Henry was currently a more important source for Russia than she was, because he had more helpful information, including how the United States military establishes an army hospital in war conditions and information about previous training provided by the United States military to Ukrainian military personnel. Gabrielian arranged to meet with the UC and Henry later that evening.

At about 8:10 p.m. that evening, the indictment alleges that Gabrielian and Henry met with the UC in the UC’s hotel room. During the meeting, Henry explained to the UC he was committed to assisting Russia and had looked into volunteering to join the Russian Army after the conflict in Ukraine began, but Russia wanted people with “combat experience” and he did not have any. Henry further stated, “the way I am viewing what is going on in Ukraine now, is that the United States is using Ukrainians as a proxy for their own hatred toward Russia.” Henry and Gabrielian allegedly offered to provide the UC with private medical records from the United States Army and Medical Institution 1 in order to help the Russian government. During the same meeting, Gabrielian demanded that if she were put at significant risk of arrest, she wanted her and Henry’s children to, “have a nice flight to Turkey to go on vacation because I don’t want to end in jail here with my kids being hostages over my head.” Henry also indicated that he was concerned about passing a background check for his security clearance, telling the UC, “I don’t want to know your name . . . because I want plausible deniability too. In a security clearance situation they want to know names and people and all this stuff.”

As detailed in the indictment, a few days later Gabrielian and the UC again met at the hotel in Baltimore to discuss providing Army medical records to the UC. Gabrielian told the UC that Henry was concerned about violating HIPAA, but Gabrielian had no such concerns. Gabrielian stated that she would check with Henry about providing medical records from Fort Bragg patients and get back in touch. The next day, Gabrielian sent a text to the UC, using coded language, to advise that Henry would provide Army medical records to the UC. On August 31, 2022, Gabrielian and Henry allegedly met the UC at a hotel room in Gaithersburg, Maryland. According to the indictment, Gabrielian provided the UC with IIHI related to two individuals, including the spouse of an employee of the Office of Naval Intelligence, whom Gabrielian pointed out had a medical condition Russia could “exploit.” Henry also allegedly provided IIHI related to five individuals who were military veterans or related to military veterans.

If convicted, the defendants face a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison for the conspiracy, and a maximum of 10 years in federal prison for each count of disclosing IIHI. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

As Women in Iran Put Their Lives on the Line for Their Rights Where Are The Feminists? thumbnail

As Women in Iran Put Their Lives on the Line for Their Rights Where Are The Feminists?

By Jihad Watch

What’s happening in Iran is the biggest women’s rights protest ever in the Islamic world. Yet the response from some of the leading feminists in the United States, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib, has been resoundingly muted. Each one has made what can be characterized at best as a tepid, pro forma response, one that contrasts sharply with their statements and actions during the Trump administration. It looks as if each one of these women regard Donald Trump as a far greater threat to women than the Islamic Republic of Iran is.

AOC tweeted on September 23: “Solidarity with the courageous women and allies in Iran protesting for their freedom. Mahsa Amini was senselessly murdered by the same patriarchal and autocratic forces repressing women the world over. The right to choose belongs to us all, from hijabs to reproductive care.” She also retweeted a tweet from Yassmin Abdel-Magid, a hijab-wearing Muslim writer in Australia: “To be (hijabi) or not be (hijabi) is the business of no state or man. Solidarity with women resisting patriarchal control, the world over.” Tlaib, meanwhile, retweeted AOC’s statement, and Omar retweeted Abdel-Magid’s. That’s it in terms of the public reactions of this trio to the uprising for women’s rights in Iran.

Neither AOC nor Abdel-Magid was going to come close to saying something about Islamic law, although that’s exactly what the protests in Iran are all about: women there don’t want to live under Islamic law anymore. But both are far too committed to the fictional concept of “Islamophobia,” and so they both made it all about patriarchy. That’s a much safer target for them, as patriarchy exists all over, not just in Iran, and not just among Muslims. So the very publicly practicing Muslims Omar and Tlaib could retweet their statements without fearing that they would be accused of criticizing Islam.

AOC also went farther, equating the mullahs of Tehran with the pro-lifers in the United States. They’re “the same patriarchal and autocratic forces repressing women the world over,” daring to interfere with “the right to choose” in the fields of both “hijabs” and “reproductive care.” It’s a spectacular feat of illogic to equate a regime that is mowing down its own people in the streets with a Supreme Court decision that allows the individual states to determine whether to legalize or outlaw abortion, but that sort of incendiary rhetoric is how AOC keeps her rabid Left base ginned up with the requisite outrage that will drive these drug-addled slackers to the polls and to take other “social action.”

Yet AOC’s comparison, as you would expect, falls apart upon a moment’s thought. Pro-lifers, or at least the Supreme Court Justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, are just like the Supreme Leader and his cohorts in the Islamic Republic. They’re both “patriarchal and autocratic forces,” you see. But from what ideological wellsprings does Iran’s patriarchal autocracy spring? AOC doesn’t dare get close to that question, for it is one of her most cherished dogmas that Islam is a religion of peace that has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism, and Muslims are victims of “Islamophobia” who must accordingly be given special consideration and accommodation. And allowing restrictions on access to abortion in some localities is, as far as AOC is concerned, equivalent to shooting women to death for daring to uncover their heads? The mind reels.

This is the same Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who in October 2020 took umbrage at then-President Trump referring to her as AOC in one of his debates with Old Joe Biden. “I wonder,” she wrote at the time, “if Republicans understand how much they advertise their disrespect of women in debates when they consistently call women members of Congress by nicknames or first names while using titles & last names when referring to men of = stature. Women notice. It conveys a lot. AOC is a name given to me by community & the people. Y’all can call me AOC.”

So the “community & the people,” i.e., Leftists, can call her AOC, but if Republicans do so, they “advertise their disrespect of women.” AOC didn’t even say that the mullahs were displaying any “disrespect of women.” You may recall Tlaib, meanwhile, back in 2016 screaming and yelling at a Trump rally, until she had to be escorted out. Has she ever gotten so enraged and emotional at the mullahs? Not publicly and likely not privately, either. For her part, Ilhan Omar claimed that Trump’s criticism of her was an attack on all women. Has she said that the murder of Mahsa Amini was an attack on all women? No.

Do Omar, Tlaib, and AOC just want the Iran protests to go away, because Iran’s repressive and bloodthirsty regime interferes with their “Islamophobia” narrative? Sure looks like it.

Physicians Group Sues FDA Over Ivermectin thumbnail

Physicians Group Sues FDA Over Ivermectin

By John Eidson

Report: Ivermectin Obliterated 97% Of Covid Cases In Delhi, India

On June 1, the Desert Review News reported that Ivermectin had obliterated 97 percent of Covid infections in India’s capitol territory, Delhi (pop. 30 million).

The chart below shows that Delhi was experiencing more than 20,000 new cases daily in early May. By the end of the month, new cases had dropped precipitously, to a 7-day average of less than 1,500 new cases daily.

VIEW CHART

On Sept. 18, the Indian Express reported that Delhi had only 33 new Covid cases and only one new death in the previous 24 hours.

What reportedly happened in Delhi is anecdotal evidence that Ivermectin can play an important role in mitigating Covid. Anecdotal, yes, but quite impressive results if the reports are accurate.

The FDA has not approved Ivermectin for treating or preventing COVID-19 in humans. Democrats ridicule Ivermectin as a “horse de-worming” medication. In fact, there are two forms of Ivermectin, one of which is used to de-worm horses. The other, which received a Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2015, is a repurposed formula used to disrupt transmission of malaria among humans. It is this latter form that reportedly has had significant results in the fight against Covid.

The beef against Ivermectin may ultimately be nothing more than (1) its cheap price, which prevents Big Pharma from making billions on less effective and more highly priced alternatives, and (2) its apparent effectiveness undercuts the Biden administration’s transparent attempt to keep voters in a heightened state of Covid fear through the 2022 elections.

ANOTHER INTRIGUING STORY ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

According to WorldOMeter, as of Sept. 19, China has had 95,689 coronavirus cases and 4,636 deaths since early 2020, while the U.S., with a population one-fourth as large as China’s, has recorded 42,869,445 cases and 691,562 deaths.

The following chart shows that since mid-April of 2020, China’s active cases have been in a virtual flatline of less than 1,000 per day…

VIEW CHART

The chart below shows that since early May of 2020, daily active cases in the U.S. have remained in the millions:

VIEW CHART

China has been known to put out misleading information about Covid, as has the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Biden administration. Assuming the statistics above are reasonably accurate, the coronavirus has had a far more devastating impact on America than on the much more populous country where it is believed to have originated.

What can possibly explain such a wide disparity? Perhaps the Gatestone Institute article “Biden Letting China Get Away with the Crime of the Century” provides a possible clue in this excerpt:

China’s military is working on the next generation of pathogens. Its National Defense University, in the 2017 edition of the authoritative Science of Military Strategy, mentioned a new kind of biological warfare of “specific ethnic genetic attacks.” China’s military researchers and analysts for a half decade have been writing about pathogens of this sort, and American officials are in fact concerned that Chinese scientists have been experimenting with, in the words of Bill Gertz of the Washington Times, “germ weapons capable of attacking ethnic groups.” Beijing’s determined campaign to collect genetic profiles of foreigners … is another indication that the Chinese military, in violation of its obligations under the Biological Weapons Convention, is building ethnic-specific bioweapons.

Was Covid-19 an ethnic-specific bioweapon? I have no idea and am not saying it was, only wondering why Biden seems so reluctant to demand a serious investigation into its origin.

Why Are Caucasians Vanishing From TV Commercials? thumbnail

Why Are Caucasians Vanishing From TV Commercials?

By Royal A. Brown III

I’m sure you’ve all seen how white people especially normal white males and white couples have all but disappeared from TV commercials.

You can’t escape these commercials even if you’ve dumped cable or satellite and gone to live streaming TV.   Advertisers and those who pay for their commercials have fallen on the alters of Critical Race Theory, diversity, inclusion, equity and political correctness. And ought and ought lies.

by Jacob Fraden | AmericanThinker.com

Commercials take up 27% of commercial television screen time and are the main source of income for TV and radio stations. In most cases, advertisements on all channels appear simultaneously, so don’t try to change the channel, there will be commercials elsewhere, too. Nowadays they have also taken over the Internet. For financial support, websites have to run ads on their pages, the largest share supplied and controlled by Google. Ads pry into your eyes, unceremoniously interfere with text, and on YouTube, in the most inappropriate places, they cut into the action of films, lectures, and concerts, tearing apart musical performances. There’s no escaping commercials, we’ve grown accustomed to them, and they become almost as much a part of our lives as food, toilets, and sleep.

In the United States today, the White population (not including Hispanics) is 57.8%. In real life, Caucasians are still in the majority, but now on TV and the Internet, they are swept under the rug like trash. Blacks comprise 14% of the U.S. population but appear in 50% of commercials. White actors now appear to promote health insurance, gold, loans, and some medicines. Moreover, if a White person appears in a commercial, he/she is usually old, sick, a freak, or at the very least, an appendage to a Black partner. If there’s a doctor on the screen, he’s usually Black, while the patient is usually White. Caucasian young men appear in only 4% of the commercials! If some aliens began to study the population of Planet Earth through our TV commercials they would have a somewhat distorted picture of Americans, to put it mildly.

So why do advertisers ignore the long-standing rules of marketing, and to the detriment of their own financial interests, fill the media space with content that displaces and degrades its biggest market segment? The answer is simple. At the heart of this nonsense is political correctness in a form even an Orwell could not have foreseen.  Business executives go out of their way to publicly show their conformity with the universal “diversity” and “critical racial theory” (CRT), demanding that the White man be blamed for all the sins one can imagine.  Replacing ancient, long-vanished oppression of Blacks with real oppression of Whites, overcompensating and planting racism-in-reverse.

Why does the White population, which is still in the majority in the U.S., accept the banishing and belittling obediently and silently?  Why is there no public criticism, much less resistance to the idiocy? Why don’t people don’t tell political correctness to go to hell? After all, the U.S. is not Stalin’s USSR, and anyone who disagrees with the party is not yet sent to a camp or shot. Why is there such stifling conformity among the American people, formerly known for their independence and freedom of speech? The answer is simple and sad: the reason is fear, albeit on a more vegetarian level than it was under Soviet rule.

Ordinary people keep their mouths shut for fear of losing their jobs, not getting a holiday bonus, not getting promoted, or being socially ostracized. This is understandable, and I wouldn’t blame them, although I wouldn’t respect them either. But what are people of higher position afraid of — the heads and owners of businesses? What is threatening them? Indeed, nobody is going to drive them out of their positions or take their business, though fear of boycotts can be realistic.  They are afraid of various inconveniences: negative articles in the leftist press, social shunning, frivolous lawsuits, loss of state and federal licenses, government contracts, unexpected audits by the IRS, fines for alleged violations of minorities’ rights, and the like small and large troubles.

People think that if they keep quiet, then the pendulum will swing back and everything will sort itself out. But comfort kills the will to resist and produces conformism, which inevitably leads to stagnation, degradation of society, reduction of living standards and, finally, to loss of that very comfort.

So what are we to do? I am not calling anyone to the barricades but only ask: Don’t live by lies. The least any of us can do today is not participate in lies of the CRT and other political correctness: not watch their movies, not read their newspapers, not vote for the conformist candidates, not support them financially, and certainly never buy anything that in a politically correct manner is singing and dancing on a TV or computer screen.

House Republicans Request Gov’t Watchdog Investigate Foreign Investments In American Farmland thumbnail

House Republicans Request Gov’t Watchdog Investigate Foreign Investments In American Farmland

By The Daily Caller

More than 100 House Republicans are asking a government watchdog to probe foreign investments in U.S. farmland, including those by China, which they say may present national and food security concerns.

Led by Reps. Glenn Thompson of Pennsylvania and James Comer of Kentucky, the lawmakers on Saturday called on the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to study foreign farmland ownership and how the U.S. government is monitoring acquisitions, a letter shows. There has been an uptick in foreign investments and ownership, which may be “underreported” due to the U.S. Agriculture Department’s (USDA) unreliable data, the Republicans say.

The Agricultural Foreign Investment Disclosure Act of 1978 requires foreigners with U.S. land to disclose holdings with USDA’s Farm Service Agency. USDA’s data has beenfound in the last several years to not fully cover foreign investments.

Foreign investment and ownership of U.S. agricultural land has roughly doubled between 2010 and 2020, the Republicans noted in their letter. Foreign investors were also found in a December 2020 USDA report to hold about 37.6 million acres of agricultural land in the U.S.

Canadian investors were found in the 2020 USDA report to own the largest share of U.S. land — at 32% or 12.4 million acres. The Netherlands accounted for 13%, Italy at 7%, and the United Kingdom at 6%, while China held 352,140 acres, or under 1% of foreign investments.

“China’s ownership of U.S. farmland is a threat to our food security and national security,” Comer, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “An affordable, reliable food supply is critical to our nation’s well-being and prosperity and we must ensure America maintains control of our nation’s resources.

Lawmakers have previously sounded the alarm over Chinese investments in U.S. land. The Republicans in their letter specifically cite one Chinese company’s purchase of North Dakota farmland located near a U.S. Air Force base “that is home to top-secret drone technology.”

General Atomics, a top defense contractor, said Sept. 20 its confidentiality of weapons at the facility could be breached should it “conduct significant test and evaluation efforts related to unmanned aircraft, radar systems, and other advanced military technologies.”

“Concerns have also been expressed that foreign investment in U.S. farmland could result in foreign control of available U.S. farmland, especially prime agricultural lands, and possibly lead to foreign control over food production and food prices,” the letter said.

The Republicans are looking for GOA to provide information on how its Farm Service Agency collects data and ensures data reliability — as well as how its data collection methods have changed since reporting requirements began in 1978 with the passage of The Agricultural Foreign Investment Disclosure Act.

A GAO spokesman told the DCNF that the watchdog “received” the Republicans’ request and will decide within roughly two weeks whether it will probe the investments.

WOLF: Biden Admin Wants Us To Believe Things Are Just Peachy At The Southern Border thumbnail

WOLF: Biden Admin Wants Us To Believe Things Are Just Peachy At The Southern Border

By The Daily Caller

While much attention is focused on illegal aliens arriving in sanctuary cities, the real story unfolding is the concerted and choreographed disinformation campaign regarding the security of the southern border. When it comes to the security of Americans and the challenges to ending human trafficking and defeating the drug cartels, the first obligation of the federal government should be to tell the truth.

It was a responsibility that I took seriously during my time leading the Department of Homeland Security.

Today, however, the Biden administration appears less interested in taking ownership and offering solutions and more interested in pointing figures and placing blame. A simple look at the facts shows just how out of touch this White House is when it comes to the border — and the American people know it.

Let’s start with Vice President Kamala Harris. On national television, she recently said, “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.” This was no gaffe as she reiterated, “We have a secure border in that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration.”

Not to be outdone, the White House press secretary — who has a record of pedaling disinformation — piled on the untruthful statements recently.

The most outrageous was her claim that, “We are doing a lot more [than the Trump Administration] to secure the border and could be doing even more if Republicans would stop their obstruction,” she said. This was on top of her claim that “It’s not like somebody walks over [the border.]”

These statements have received most of the attention, but they lack credibility as neither official has bothered to visit the border and see the reality. After 19 months of a failed border strategy, the American people see through it too. By now, just about everyone is aware that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has apprehended more than 2 million illegal aliens at the border this fiscal year (FY) — the highest number ever recorded and September’s numbers are not yet in.

While a majority of American adults polled by NPR unsurprisingly believe we have an “invasion” at the southern border, from my experience I know the situation is far worse. These numbers are unsustainable, and the trafficking and smuggling networks are exploiting the sheer volume of migrants CBP is forced to process to flood our country with bad actors and deadly fentanyl.

Lost in the absurdity of claiming the border is secure are other statements the vice president made during the same interview that should really alarm the American people. Most concerning, she said, “I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do, the first request we made: pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship.”

Translation: The Biden administration’s solution to the border crisis continues to be amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Let that sink in. We have no idea who most of these people are, but the administration wants to hand out green cards. This is not a solution to the record number of illegal aliens coming to the border each month.

This is a failed strategy. It is also a national security risk. We tried this back in 1986 and the result was an explosion of new illegal immigration. The vetting failures resulted in Ramzi Yousef being amnestied. He promptly used his new legal status to orchestrate the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 1993.

Having just observed the 21st anniversary of 9/11 — another immigration and intelligence failure — the Biden administration seems unaware of or ignorant to the role weak immigration enforcement plays in jeopardizing the safety of the homeland.

The White House’s talk of a “broken” immigration system is nonsense. While our immigration laws could benefit from some revisions, there are sufficient authorities available today to secure the border, end human trafficking and defeat the cartels. I know because I utilized those authorities, including the Remain in Mexico policy, to establish one of the most secure borders in generations.

Real leadership entails taking responsibility when your policies fail, not hiding them from the American people by pretending they don’t exist or blaming the previous administration. The American people see through this disinformation campaign and are demanding solutions that will secure the border and protect the homeland. Will the Biden Administration change course?

The ONLY Issue in the 2022 Election is Voter Fraud thumbnail

The ONLY Issue in the 2022 Election is Voter Fraud

By Joan Swirsky

A friend recently reminded me of an article I had written on October 5, 2020, just before the presidential election that found all TV networks reporting that President Donald Trump was crushing Joe Biden across the board––including in the all-important battleground states––and then that coverage mysteriously stopped cold, disappeared for over three hours, and reappeared to report that the exact opposite was true, that Joe Biden had magically become the Crusher in Chief, ultimately “winning” the 2020 election.

“Remember the title of your article?” my friend asked me. In fact, I did, since it was the only time in decades of writing that I had capitalized a word in the title. It read like this:

The ONLY Issue in the 2020 Election is Voter Fraud.

Well, it’s election time again, and sure enough the same thing is true. And after viewing Dinesh D’Souza’s jaw-dropping “2000 Mules,” which documents the massive fraud that indeed took place in 2020, and after reading dozens of reports about audits that were done in the battleground states and others which uncovered overwhelming voter fraud, including thousands of dead voters, it appears that voter fraud is once again the ONLY issue of concern. Great concern.

THE REALITY FACTOR

When you peel back all the layers of the onion of a human being’s psychology, our species is really not that complicated. Whether man or woman, black or white, rich or poor, from whatever background, religion, or culture, we all have similar if not identical needs.

In 1943, psychologist Abraham Maslow introduced the concept of a Hierarchy of Needs, which hasn’t changed much since then. They include:

Physiological needs that are vital to survival:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Breathing
  • Homeostasis
  • Shelter
  • Clothing
  • Reproduction

Security and Safety Needs

Social needs

  • Friendships
  • Romantic attachments
  • Family relationships
  • Social groups
  • Community groups
  • Churches and religious organizations

Yes, these are needs common to everyone, and yet in the past two years, under the Biden regime, every single one of them has been threatened if not destroyed.

WHEN YOU DESTROY BASIC NEEDS

With the stupefying mismanagement of our national budget––and in spite of the booming economy and high employment he inherited–– the Biden inflation factor didn’t take long to set in, followed in short order by the Biden Recession. There went the security most Americans felt in buying food and gas and paying rent. Even reproduction is down as younger people hoping to move out of their parent’s basement have hunkered down for an indefinite stay.

At the same time, there went the country’s security and safety needs. With four-million illegal aliens swarming over Biden’s open southern border, including drug cartels with so much Fentanyl that the deaths of young people have already increased exponentially, and thugs and criminals being bused and flown in the middle of the night to cities and suburbs throughout our country, even a walk in the park or a trip to the supermarket has become a looming threat.

And with liberal legislators all over the country ignoring the massive criminality of thuggish groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and innocent pedestrians being assaulted––sometimes fatally––and the passing of no-bail laws that put rapists and muggers and even murderers back on the street 20 minutes after they are so-called “booked,” life in America has become a daily and nightly menace.

And let’s not forget Biden’s pathetic reliance on foreign oil, going hat in hand literally begging for the resources to keep us going, while only two years ago, President Trump had achieved one-hundred percent energy independence––to last us 500 years!

Then there is the war in Ukraine and the billions (going on trillions) we have sent to what is now widely recognized at The Money-Laundering Capital of the World!

A normal person would look at the bleak state of our union and conclude that the powers-that-be––those running the show from the Oval Office––are so woefully inept, have such patronizing contempt for We the People, and such a deep loathing for America the Beautiful, that it would seem to be a given that every Democrat candidate, including those running for the U.S. Senator or the U.S. Congress on Tuesday, November 8, would lose in a landslide.

HOWEVER…

Over the past many decades––with the advent of electronic voting machines and mail-in ballots––American elections have not been predictable. Why? Because the only thing Democrats have cared about for the past hundred years is winning elections with the goal of inflicting their strangulating socialist/communist and now Islamist style of government on the American people.

In the past two years in particular, they’ve been maniacally obsessed with insuring that President Trump is unable to run again for POTUS, even if the perpetual sore losers of the left have to buy the guns they say they hate to wage a Civil War!

Why? Because citizen-cum President Trump won the 2016 election by exposing:

  • “The Swamp’s” systemic depravity, corruption, and treason.
  • The Democrats’ America-Last policies.
  • The leftist bias of the bought-and-paid-for Media Whores.
  • The Democrat racism that has kept blacks with broken families, mal-educated, imprisoned, and impoverished for decades on end.
  • The craven deals that made our country dependent on foreign oil.
  • The Obama-Biden regimes’ weaponizing of the FBI, CIA, and the FISA Court, et al.
  • The crooked money “arrangements” enjoyed by higher-ups like former VP Joe Biden in securing multimillion-and-billion-dollar windfalls for himself, his son Hunter, and his brother James. Ukraine, anyone? China, anyone?
  • The horrible treaties, including the Iran deal, NAFTA, NATO, et al, that benefitted foreign countries significantly more than the U.S.
  • The interest of the “anti-war” Democrats in keeping wars going endlessly (always follow the money).
  • This is the very very short list.

THE METHOD TO THEIR MADNESS

Even diehard leftist partisans acknowledge that Democrats have stolen elections over the past many decades by enlisting the votes of illegal aliens, absentee voters who simply don’t exist, cartoon characters, and of course dead voters.

Then there is Ballot Harvesting, a scheme exclusively used by Democrats to, ahem, win elections. According to CA political commentator Stephan Frank, anyone––campaign workers, minors, illegals, et al––go door to door to “help” people fill out ballots that strangely favor Democrats and refuse to collect ballots from anyone they suspect of voting the “wrong” way. They even pay them to vote the “right way.”

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, currently 26 states allow this fraudulence, a practice that was aggressively and somewhat successfully challenged by Tom Fitton of electionintegrity@judicialwatch.org.

Not to omit ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), in operation since 1970. But the group was exposed for its criminal activities in 2009 by James O’Keefe, founder of The Veritas Project, resulting in multiple convictions for massive voter fraud in several states, and it closed its doors in 2010, although it is believed that splinter groups formed and are active to this day.

LET ME COUNT THE WAYS

The following is a tiny example of the vote-rigging methods used exclusively by Democrats going into the 2020 election:

Here’s a beauty from Doug Ross@Journal: In PAMIMINN, and WI, Democrat activists dressed in black robes have fundamentally rewritten state election laws. Among them are:

But Democrats don’t stop! This past August, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s tried to dismiss the Public Interest Legal Foundation’s (PILF) lawsuit for her failure to remove 25,975 dead registrants from the state’s voter rolls.

According to PILF:

  • 23,663 registrants have been dead for five years or more
  • 17,479 registrants have been dead for at least a decade
  • 3,956 registrants have been dead for at least 20 years

In August, the United States Western District Court of Michigan denied Benson’s attempt.

In July, a hearing on the Maricopa, Arizona, 2020 election audit revealed the following:

  • Maricopa County refused to provide their computer’s router, claiming that its data would make private data available. In fact, routers don’t keep such information.
  • Maricopa claimed to have provided images of the mail-in envelopes. In fact, they did not.
  • 74,243 ballots that were received and included in the 2020 Election in Maricopa County show no record that they were ever mailed out.
  • 11,326 people voted in the election who did not appear on the voter rolls on Nov 7th.
  • 3,981 people voted after registering after the Oct. 15, 2020, deadline.
  • On and on and on.

In addition, a recent Georgia audit of the 2020 election revealed:

  • A Non-Profit group, called True the Vote provided evidence that as many as 242 voting activists flooded as many as 5,500 drop boxes with fraudulent ballots in the middle of the night.
  • Videos also showed that the activists wore blue rubber gloves when depositing the ballots into the drop boxes. This practice was begun when investigations, in Arizona, over the same crime of ballot harvesting were, successfully, prosecuted, based on fingerprints on the ballots.

PARTNERS IN CRIME

According to a Google whistleblower in Allum Bokhari’s book, #DELETED: Big Tech’s Battle to Erase the Trump Movement and Steal the Election, “When voters find out what Big Tech companies have done to meddle in the upcoming election, they’ll be rightly furious” at the attempts of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other tech companies to sway the election in Biden’s favor.

In addition, Democrats Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi are closely aligned with groups like Majority Forward (created in 2015) that funnel millions in secret cash into 2020 elections, according to FreeBeacon.com.

Linda Goudsmit, author of The Book of Humanitarian Hoaxes: Killing America with ‘Kindness’, sees the upcoming midterms as yet another “sinister leftist, Islamist, globalist attack on America.” We are only weeks away from the election,” she said, and “the enemies of America are desperate.” and behaving like cornered animals poised for attack. Their survival is at stake because if Republicans take the Congress, they will start the process that President Trump began of taking down the Deep State and exposing them all.”

It must be incomprehensible to all those liberals/leftists/progressives––with all their prestigious college degrees, high IQs, impeccable credentials, fancy job titles, and positions in the highest reaches of the American government––that every ploy they used against President Trump, every arch machination, every exquisitely formulated plan of action, all resulted in crashing failures, and that everything they’ve done to try to legitimize Joe Biden and enact his deeply anti-American agenda has resulted in equally colossal failures.

But still, there remains ONLY one overriding issue in the 2022 midterm elections, and that issue is Democrat Voter Fraud!

Our Republican and Conservative leaders have had two years to right the egregious wrong of the 2020 election. If that sordid history repeats itself, they only have themselves to blame!

‘We’re A Second Amendment State’: DeSantis Warns Off Prospective Ian Looters

By The Daily Caller

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a stern warning during a Friday press conference in Fort Myers to would-be looters in the wake of Hurricane Ian.

“I can tell you in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home,” the governor cautioned, according to Fox News.

“And I would not want to chance that if I were you — given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”

DeSantis warned against taking advantage of vulnerable people in areas hit hardest by Ian’s destruction. “We want to make sure we’re maintaining law and order,” he said. Local law enforcement remains involved in monitoring any and all looting and state assistance could be called on for help, DeSantis noted further. One sign reading, “You loot, we shoot” was spotted by the governor in Punta Gorda, Fox News reported.

Florida is a law and order state.

The Category 4 storm left more than 2 million without power after making landfall Wednesday. Flooding hit Fort Myers, Florida particularly hard, where looters were arrested Friday on Fort Myers Beach, according to ABC 3. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office expressed a zero tolerance stance on looting, promising to arrest any involved in criminal activity, the outlet said.

“We are not going to look like Chicago or New York where we’re letting people out in 24 hours so they can go back and loot another home,” tweeted Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody in response to reports of looting. “That will not be tolerated here.”
