Hamas-linked CAIR Files Suit to Discontinue Terrorism Watchlist

By Jihad Watch

Because there is no more terrorism, rightRight?

Could it be that the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants to hamstring the little effort that remains to stop jihad terrorists in the U.S.? Oh, surely not!

Civil Rights Group Files Suit to Discontinue Terrorism Watchlist Created After 9/11

by Megan Gates, ASIS International, September 22, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A civil rights group sued U.S. federal government officials this week, alleging a terrorist watchlist is used for “harassment and humiliation” and should be discontinued.

The Michigan Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Rights (CAIR), a grassroots civil rights and advocacy organization, announced the filing of the lawsuit on behalf of 12 plaintiffs against 29 U.S. federal government representatives on Monday, including the U.S. attorney general, FBI director, and the U.S. Secret Service director. Dearborn, Michigan, has the largest Muslim population per capita of any city in the United States.

“In Michigan and across the nation, American Muslims targeted by the federal government’s unconstitutional, discriminatory watchlist and [sic] standing up and demanding justice from the government for 20 years of unjust targeting,” said CAIR-Michigan Executive Director Dawud Walid in a statement. “The time has come for the Biden administration to end the use of the watchlist.”

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants violated Fifth Amendment due process, equal protection under the law, and self-incrimination protections by placing plaintiffs and other individuals on the Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS), as well as the No Fly List and Selectee List, without any meaningful process. The suit also charges that the defendants have violated the Fourth Amendment by subjecting watch listed individuals to unreasonable searches and seizures when they cross the border to enter the United States.

In addition, the watchlist program is a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by “substantially” burdening individuals’ practice of Islam by “repeated and intrusive government inquiry” into their beliefs, religious communities, and religious practices, according to the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs are seeking injunctions that require the U.S. federal government to remedy constitutional and statutory violations by providing individuals on the TSDS and its subsets with a legal mechanism that gives them notice of why they are on the list, as well as a meaningful opportunity to contest their inclusion.

Additionally, the plaintiffs are requesting they be removed from the TSDS and other watchlists that inhibit their travel or ability to access government benefits, that their records of TSDS inclusion be permanently expunged, that the watchlist system be reformed to eliminate any discriminatory focus on Muslim identity or religious practice, and other relief, including a trial by jury and monetary damages.

“Watchlist placement extrajudicially sentences innocent Americans to permanent second-class citizenship,” said CAIR in a statement. “CAIR’s lawsuit reveals for the first time that, even on the rare occasion that the government removes an individual from the watchlist, an individual’s past watchlist will continue to haunt them. Federal agencies retain records of past watchlist status and use them to deny formerly listed individuals access to government buildings, security clearances, federal employment, and other licenses and government benefits.”…

Unintended Consequences: The California Electric Truck Mandate thumbnail

Unintended Consequences: The California Electric Truck Mandate

By MercatorNet – Navigating Modern Complexities

If you own a trucking company that picks up shipments from California ports, you now have to deal with the consequences of a new law designed to reduce your carbon footprint.

Trucking is one of the vital ingredients in our infrastructure that virtually all parts of the economy rely on. About two-fifths of all containerized imports to the US come through one of California’s twelve commercial ports. According to a recent report in National Review, beginning January 1, any trucker doing “drayage” (the technical term for transporting stuff to or from a seaport) in California can only buy zero-emission vehicles, although they can hang on to their existing diesel fleet for a while.

Trucks don’t last forever, however, and evidently the court of wisdom otherwise known as the California legislature decided this was the best way to get truckers used to the additional coming mandate that in 2035, all trucks entering California seaports and intermodal rail yards (where the containers are loaded onto trains) must be zero-emission types.

The ostensible motivation for these laws is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, of course. And careful analyses do show that over the lifetime of an electric vehicle, even if you include the fossil fuels used in the different types of manufacturing (electric versus internal-combustion) and in producing the electricity for the vehicle, less carbon dioxide results from using electric vehicles. That’s the intended consequence, and unless the law is later modified, it will be achieved.

But the devil is in the details, and some truckers interviewed about the mandate pointed out several unintended consequences that may follow from these laws. For one thing, the number of electric trucks in California will have to go from about 300, where it is today, to around 500,000, and some way will have to be found to charge all those trucks, and to keep them running farther than the alleged 60 miles that the California regulators said was the typical drayage daily mileage. A lot of truckers drive a lot farther than that every day, and if you add several hours a day to charge the trucks, it turns a normal workday into a 20-hour day.

And then there’s the cost. Even if you can find a zero-emission truck that will do the job, it will cost three or four times what a diesel vehicle costs. And one trucker asked what bank will finance such a purchase if you can’t show where you’re going to charge it and how you will work out a schedule that will let you stay in business.

So, if California doubles down on enforcement, we can anticipate something like a gradual strangling of commerce flowing through its ports as the few truckers who manage to jump through the hoops of regulation are all that’s left. And maybe that was what the lawmakers really wanted anyway. If the idealist dream of a zero-emission society were to come to pass in the next couple of years, millions would die of starvation and cold, and those few who are left would be reduced to living a life that would be familiar to a denizen of 1880.

At the very least, essentially shutting down 40% of containerized imports to the US would cause massive supply-chain disruptions that would make what happened during COVID look like a hiccup. If you say no one would let things get that bad, well, we did let things get that bad during COVID, and it can happen again.

I recently came across a true story that should become the paradigm cautionary tale for those who close their eyes to the unintended consequences of legislation.

In England in the mid-1800s, dogs were quite commonly used for transportation. Poor people who couldn’t afford a horse and wagon to carry their goods to market could nevertheless use a dog and a “dog-cart” (not to be confused with the horse-drawn carriage referred to in Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tales). But in 1841, the recently founded Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) successfully lobbied to pass a law prohibiting the use of dogs for transportation. In urging this measure, the SPCA cited a few highly publicized instances of cruelty to transport dogs, although it appears that many if not most of the dogs were well-treated. For good measure, a dog tax was also passed around the same time, further discouraging the use of dogs for business purposes.

I can’t be positive, but I suspect that the SPCA members were largely upper-class types who, if they thought ahead at all, imagined all the dogs formerly used for transport would revert to being beloved pets. Think again. According to Stanley Coren, a dog psychologist and historian, when the law took effect it led to something close to a dog holocaust:

“Dreadful massacres of dogs took place all over England when they could no longer legally be used for cartage but were now taxable. In Birmingham, more than a thousand were slaughtered, and similar carnage took place in Liverpool. In Cambridge, the streets were littered with dead dogs. Because these bodies were becoming a health hazard, the high constable of Cambridge arranged a mass burial of four hundred dogs.”

So much for good intentions. The SPCA survived this debacle somehow, and so did the use of dogs for transportation in other parts of the world, but no longer in England.

No one can be certain of exactly what will happen if California enforces their zero-emission truck mandate. But they are meddling with a piece of infrastructure that is crucial to the entire US economy, and if the law has the unintended consequence of disrupting commerce in ways that harm millions of US citizens, those harms should be weighed against whatever essentially unmeasurable good that may eventually come a century or so after California’s greenhouse-gas emissions go down by a few percent as a result of this law. In my view, the law will do a lot more harm than good, and most of the California truckers think so too.

Uh Oh, Biden/Harris announce ‘First ever White House office of gun violence protection’ thumbnail

Uh Oh, Biden/Harris announce ‘First ever White House office of gun violence protection’

By Dr. Rich Swier

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ― Jeff Cooper, The Art of the Rifle.

“An armed society is a polite society.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, American science fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and Naval officer. 

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” — Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Adolf Hitler said, “The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

Other have noted that, “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”

Fast forward to August 2023 and the White House announcement of a new Office of Gun Violence Prevention.

The attacks on the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution have been relentless. Both parties have embraced “red flag” laws and restrictions on gun ownership. They use the excuse to severely restricting gun ownership because guns have been used by mass murderers in our public schools, which are “gun free zones.”

On August 22nd, 2023 Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. during his remarks on this new White House office of gun control stated,

If you need 80 shots in a magazine, you shouldn’t own a gun.

[ … ]

That’s why this new White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention — it’s what it’s designed to do. It will drive and coordinate a government and a nationwide effort to reduce gun violence in America.

[ … ]

An office — and the office will have four primary responsibilities:

First, to expedite the implementation of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act and the executive actions already announced. And I mean it: We’re going to fully implement it.

Second, coordinate more support for survivors, families, and communities affected by gun violence, including mental health care, financial assistance — the same way FEMA responds to natural disasters. The same way. And it helps folks recover and rebuild and alter. Look, folks, shootings are the ultimate superstorm, ripping through communities.

Third, identify new executive actions we can take within our legal authority to reduce gun violence.

And fourth, expand our coalition of partners in states and cities across America because we do have partners to get more — we need more state and local help to get these laws passed locally as well — and to strengthen our laws and give us more hope.

As many point out its not the gun that does the crime but the criminals who use guns to commit crimes.

This White House announcement came just days after a federal judge temporarily blocked New Mexico Governor’s gun ban.

This also comes after Hunter Biden was indicted by the DOJ on three gun charges.

So, does Hunter fall under this new White House gun control agency?

Violence is perpetuated by people.

If you want to stop violence focus on those who are most likely to become violent.

If you want to stop violence then arm the non-violent so that they may protect themselves and their loved ones.

As Tiffany Madison said, “Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly ‘free’ state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors? It cannot.”

The Biden Administration’s Parole Abuse Amounts to a Parallel Immigration System thumbnail

The Biden Administration’s Parole Abuse Amounts to a Parallel Immigration System

By Federation for American Immigration Reform

Every administration comes to office vowing to be the “most transparent in history,” only to be more opaque than the previous one. The Biden administration is certainly carrying on that tradition, nowhere more so than in providing information about its handling of immigration matters.

From Day One, this administration has done its best to hide the true scope of illegal immigration from the American public. One of the ways they have gone about this is to expand the use of the Executive Branch’s parole authority on an unprecedented scale. Those who want to know how many inadmissible foreign nationals have been paroled into the country have to sift through mountains of carefully hidden data. Over the summer, those numbers began to be revealed.

In July, CBS News reported that since President Biden came to office, more than 541,000 otherwise inadmissible aliens had entered the country under parole. That is an astounding number, given that the statutory language granting the Executive Branch such authority. Section 212(d)(5)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states that the secretary of Homeland Security “may … in his discretion parole into the United States temporarily under such conditions as he may prescribe only on a case-by-case basis [emphasis added] for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit any alien applying for admission to the United States, but such parole of such alien shall not be regarded as an admission of the alien and when the purposes of such parole shall, in the opinion of the [DHS secretary] have been served the alien” must leave the country. Based on the language of the statute, the number of people qualifying for parole would be a lot closer to 541 than 541,000.

But as jaw-dropping as the CBS estimate of parolees is, Andrew Arthur of the Center for Immigration Studies contends that the actual number of people granted parole under the Biden administration is nearly 1.44 million! In addition to the administration’s wholesale abuse of parole based on specific countries of origin or the use of CBP One phone app, the administration has been quietly handing out parole to large numbers of migrants encountered entering the country between ports of entry, i.e. illegal border-crossers. Arthur estimates that as of June 2023, an additional 896,000 inadmissible foreign nationals had been paroled into the United States during the first two and a half years of the Biden administration. Moreover, the administration is attempting to further expand the list of nationalities eligible for special parole programs as well as increasing the use of the CBP One app.

Put in perspective, the number of people allowed to enter under the Executive Branch’s very limited parole authority exceeds the population of Dallas, Texas – the nation’s ninth largest city. It is also beginning to rival the number of people who are issued green cards each year under our statutorily established immigration laws. In other words, the Biden administration is abusing its parole authority to create a parallel immigration system without any legal authority to do so. The Constitution vests Congress with plenary authority to establish immigration laws – a power that has been repeatedly affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court.

FAIR’s president, Dan Stein, has repeatedly charged that the current administration is acting lawlessly, and its assertion of limitless discretionary authority to allow as many people as it wants to settle in the United States is a threat not only to the well-being of the American people, but to our constitutional system of government.

The Firebombing of Maui: Part Two thumbnail

The Firebombing of Maui: Part Two

By Cherie Zaslawsky


And where are the 2,000 children who haven’t shown up in school in the weeks since the fire? Are their families keeping them close since the fire was so traumatizing—not just for the kids but for the whole families? Perhaps we’ll see this number dramatically decline as more children head back to school.

Or did many of them tragically perish in the fires and is the actual death toll on Maui not in the low hundreds, but in the thousands?  Two thousand children unaccounted for out of Lahaina’s community of only 12,000 people is one-sixth of the population. My guess is that the death toll is in the thousands, including many of the “missing” children who likely burned to death—excruciating to even contemplate–an atrocity of gargantuan proportions.


Remember how the movie Contagion from 2011 almost perfectly mirrored the Plandemic of 2020? Or how the movie “White Noise” seemed to predict the East Palestine catastrophic train derailment?

Well take a look at the 2016 episode of The Simpsons entitled “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus”. You’ll see a town attacked by laser-like beams that leave a deadly stream of fire in their wake, quickly incinerating an entire town. And in the aftermath, among the rubble, there’s a closed blue patio umbrella standing tall, presumably due to the theory that lasers target the red end of the light spectrum, not the blue.

We weren’t warned, but we were told.

This is the twisted game the perpetrators play with us over and over. And by the way, the photos of the unburned blue umbrellas surrounded by ash and rubble in Lahaina have been mostly scrubbed from the internet. But I’m posting a screen shot of this mystery below, captured by Greg Reese. And just below that photo are a couple of frames from the Simpson’s episode Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus.


But this Reese Report is shocking for another reason. It alleges that Chinese satellites were beaming lasers over Maui moments before the fires began, citing robotics expert Steve Favis’ claims to this effect.

Ah, so it was China, Greg? Nothing to do with Hawaii Governor Josh Green’s commitment to the UN’s Sustainability Goals (SDGs) of Agenda 2030—the Net Zero Dystopia—that he reaffirmed at a UN Summit less than a month before the fires? That man has impeccable timing…

Let’s remember that it was a globalist plan all along to reclaim this land, and that American politicians and bureaucrats have been conspiring to do so for quite some time. And let’s also remember the “China virus” from 2020 turned out to be American-made. Easy to blame China, but would China commit an out-and-out kinetic act of war against the US by wiping out an historic corner of Maui along with much of its population? Motive, please.

Looks to me like we’re in false flag/psy-op territory. After all, cui bono? Who’s already salivating to snap up  the land on Maui for their preplanned Smart City?

The two pictures above are from the Simpson’s episode Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus. The photo above them is from the Lahaina fire.


The men at the very top—mostly psychopathic billionaires and their hangers-on—are generally well protected and out of reach. But no matter how nefarious their plans, they can’t enact them without myriad minions and abettors. Hitler had to have his henchmen.

In regards to Lahaina, there are at least a few men who need to be held accountable before we consider going after bigger fish: Governor Josh Green, Police Chief and Coroner John Pelletier, and Deputy Director for the State of Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management M. Kaleo Manuel. And let’s not forget Herman Andaya, head of the Maui Emergency Management Agency, who made the brilliant decision not to sound the disaster sirens. Mr. Andaya immediately resigned, due to…um…”health issues.”

And we need to know more about the policeman who refused to let desperate drivers get out of harms way because he was “following orders.” He likely believed he was doing the right thing, and that his superiors knew of hazards unknown to him. After all, he was risking his own life standing there with the flames approaching. Nevertheless, since the choice was between certain death from burning alive if people stayed put in their cars, and the possibility of escape, he should have stepped aside and let them drive toward safety.


Whether we call them the Davos Elites, Globalists, the Billionaires’ Club, the Cabal, etc., these powerful players who’re all in for creating a One World Government with themselves at the helm are the ultimate culprits behind nearly everything nefarious transpiring in our world today. This includes not only the new breed of “wildfires”, but also the plandemic, the Color Revolution in America that saddled us with Beijing O’Biden and the Kackler, and much, much more.

Some may be unknown to most of us, hiding at the top of the pile of crazed megalomaniacs, but many are familiar suspects, along with their large eponymous foundations always ready to help with their “philanthropy.” In no particular order, here’s a partial list: the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, Larry Fink, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, the Clintons, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, the person formerly known as Sustainable Prince Charles, et al., and with a nod to their various organizations of duplicity, chicanery and treason: the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the World Bank, the Bank of International Settlements, etc., presumably with Blackrock and Vanguard not far behind. True, we can’t simply point to this or that member of these “elites” as the culprit who organized the annihilation of Lahaina. That’s why we call them “the Cabal.” But they’ve left their fingerprints all over this atrocity.


As for motive, look no further than their grand agenda: Agenda 21—the Agenda for the 21st Century—and the flashpoint before us, Agenda 2030, as they turn up the heat both literally and figuratively.

And how do we know their agenda? They’ve published it!

To enact their One World Government utopia, they plan to reconfigure the world as we know it, ending national sovereignty, and redesigning countries into combined unions, e.g. the European Union, and the planned North American Union, etc. All will be vassal states serving the whims of the Masters of the Universe in their palatial digs.

Interestingly, the wildfires in California and Maui appear to have opposite purposes. The Wine Country fires were likely deployed as a first step in reclaiming that land as “wildlands” or “buffer zones” in which human access will be banned. Whereas the firebombing of Lahaina was likely done to clear the decks for the building of a 15-minute city—a high-density, urbanized mini-metropolis, filled with stack-and-pack housing, and miserable, constantly surveilled people. A travesty inflicted on the tranquil small town community of mostly native Hawaiians.

And as for opportunity, the sky’s their limit, although they likely waited for a hurricane somewhere in the Pacific for the sake of plausible deniability.


They say a picture’s worth a thousand words.

This is a map of Maui from Appendix B of the Maui Island Plan Map Book.

One by one, I clicked on the boxes in the Lahaina coastal region, and they’re all earmarked the same way: “urban areas.” That’s Agenda 21-speak for Smart Cities, as opposed to rural areas and open space. So Lahaina’s been slated for this dystopian transformation since December of 2012. The globalists’ patience seems to have suddenly worn thin.


The mega fires in California since 2017, as well as those in Canada this year, are essentially forest fires. This gives those who are behind the torching of such lands—the Davos elites and friends—plausible deniability. After all, forest fires do happen.

But the conflagration in Lahaina, coupled with a series of “coincidental” blunders that greatly magnified the deaths of Hawaiians as well as the destruction of their property, wasn’t a forest fire, nor a wildfire.

Instead, it was a heinous, even genocidal crime against innocent indigenous Hawaiians, many of whose families have lived in Lahaina for generations. Their very infrastructure failed them: no water, no warning siren, no power, no cell phone access, and police there to hinder, not to help.

Whole families were apparently intentionally immolated in their homes or in cars as they tried to escape the inferno. The powers-that-be turned Lahaina into a virtual crematorium.

Until now, the globalist elites have depended on their media lackeys and co-conspirators to fool We the People with false but seeming plausible narratives. Though many independent thinkers quickly figured out the Plandemic was essentially a psy-op, the cabal got away with it largely because their fearmongering was so successful, bolstered by their lackeys in the medical profession and all those supposedly helpful government agencies with their Orwellian motto: Trust the science.

However, the apocalyptic Lahaina demolition and mass murder defies such propaganda. There’s no fearmongering to distract us this time. And the evil is palpable. There are too many coincidences that can only be explained by a planned scenario. I wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be a watershed moment in waking up the public. The globalist powermongers have finally taken their gloves off.

Adding insult to injury, for those who aren’t familiar with the globalists’ grand plan, Agenda 21, that document is replete with verbiage about the importance of caring for “indigenous people.” In Lahaina, they’ve more than proven their venal hypocrisy, reminding us that actions speak louder than words, as they’ve decimated the only beachfront in Maui that was owned almost entirely by indigenous Hawaiians, whom they ruthlessly burned alive to get their land.


The following quote is from the preamble to The Vancouver Action Plan approved at Habitat: United Nations Conference on Human Settlements in 1976:

Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlement, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.  Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes.

Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwelling and healthy conditions for people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.

Of course we’ve seen this in practice in the former Soviet Union and other Communist nations. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that Agenda 21 is primarily focused on land ownership and control. The globalist elites understand that most wealth emanates from land. Depending on how much you own and control, you can grow crops, graze cattle, claim water and mineral rights, drill for oil, mine for metals, build houses, buildings, shopping centers, and more.

From pre-Biblical times onward, countless battles have been fought over land ownership. Think about the changing boundaries of countries in Europe after WWI and WWII, not to mention the colonization of the New World by several of those nations, or even America’s famous Louisiana Purchase.

Land is key. And that’s why the cabal wants to own it all. Yes, all.

Thus in a corner of Maui, repository of much Hawaiian history and sacred cultural artifacts, where indigenous Hawaiians have lived for generations, they simply razed it with fire, incinerating properties along with many of their owners. Now they’re having the ashes swept up and thrown in the trash out of sight of the people. And then, one way or another, they’ll quietly confiscate this land. That was the whole point.

We on the mainland should be outraged by this murderous premeditated land grab, but must not congratulate ourselves that land grabs couldn’t happen here. They’re already happening.

Sometimes, as in Paradise, California, they take place through DEW fires; sometimes sneakily, through bureaucratic soviet-style tyranny by our own cities, counties and states as they mandate stack-and-pack multifamily housing projects in “priority development” areas near public transit. And if this agenda proceeds and intensifies, it won’t be long before the tranquil suburbs of the American Dream become distant memories and we’re left with the transformation of our cherished neighborhoods into the dystopian 15-minute cities that our globalist masters have planned for us.

And this is why we must fight this agenda every step of the way.

How’s this for a battle cry: Remember Lahaina!

Biden Plans To Target America’s Industrial Backbone With New Climate Crackdown: REPORT thumbnail

Biden Plans To Target America’s Industrial Backbone With New Climate Crackdown: REPORT

By The Daily Caller

If President Joe Biden wins a second term, his administration aims to undertake even more climate initiatives that would target key industries, according to The New York Times.

Biden, in a potential second term, would target industries he views as heavily polluting, including steel mills, cement plants, factories and oil refineries, according to the NYT. The new green initiatives could threaten his chances in the upcoming 2024 presidential election, though, as steel and cement manufacturers in swing states who are often unionized could turn on him after hearing about his climate plans for their industry.

“If you are seen as imposing debilitating regulations on heavy industry that employs large numbers of people, you’re not only going to get a backlash from manufacturing, but labor as well,” David Axelrod, chief strategist for Obama’s presidential campaigns, told the NYT. “How to do that without looking like you are stabbing these industries in the back, or in the front for that matter, is a real political challenge.”

Biden’s plan to go after industrial emissions involves subsidizing new technologies that he believes would cut down on factories’ carbon footprint, including wind and solar power to create green hydrogen to power steel mills and cement production methods that do not release carbon dioxide when heating limestone, according to the NYT. The second half of his plan involves imposing tariffs on steel, cement and aluminum based on their carbon emissions.

Since Day One, the Biden-Harris Administration has delivered on the most ambitious climate and conservation agenda in history.

This week, the Administration advanced that commitment with new actions to protect lands and wildlife in the Alaskan Arctic. pic.twitter.com/mMmarO2p8A

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) September 8, 2023

The Biden administration has already pledged $370 billion to climate initiatives through the $750 billion spending bill, the Inflation Reduction Act. The legislation includes a multitude of subsidies for domestic manufacturers of green energy technologies.

The move to place new restrictions on industry follows the president’s goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050. Biden has pumped huge subsidies into the electric vehicle industry to meet this goal, aiming for half of all new cars to be electric by 2030.

In addition to electric vehicles, the president has also targeted power plants in an attempt to encourage greener energy sources like solar and wind power, creating new Environmental Protection Agency regulations that have yet to be finalized that would compel the phaseout of coal-fired power plants, according to the NYT. The Biden administration has also put restrictions on oil and gas production through tightening requirements related to methane emissions.

“Apparently skyrocketing gas and energy prices weren’t enough for Biden, he wants to raise the prices on building and infrastructure costs and put hard working Americans further into debt,” Emma Vaughn, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, told the NYT. “Biden will not be elected to a second term — American families can’t afford it.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request to comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Biden Wants to Shrink Marine Sanctuary That Protects Endangered Whales to Accommodate Wind Energy Factory Owned By Dem Donor thumbnail

Biden Wants to Shrink Marine Sanctuary That Protects Endangered Whales to Accommodate Wind Energy Factory Owned By Dem Donor

By The Geller Report

In case you were still in the dark how evil and full of shit these Democrat environ-mentalists are……

The Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary is a biodiversity hotspot, with a range of habitat types from coastal estuaries to deep sea canyons, and migratory paths frequented by marine mammals such as dolphins and whales.

The Democrats would burn it all down.

Just like mining for EV batteries (lithium, cobalt, manganese, nickel, and graphite) destroys the environment. Solar panels and wind turbines never degrade – they are put in landfills where they will sit in eternity.

And inefficient offshore wind turbines are decimating the whale population and use tons of oil to operate and kill whales.

Biden Wants To Shrink Tribal Marine Sanctuary to Accommodate Wind Energy Factory Owned by Dem Donor

By: Susannah Luthi, Washington Free Beacon, September 12, 2023

President Joe Biden wants to shrink a Pacific Ocean marine sanctuary meant to protect endangered whales in order to accommodate offshore wind energy factories—one of them owned by a major Democratic donor.

The Biden administration late last month proposed cutting about 1,400 square miles of ocean and coastline from an Indian tribe’s proposed national marine sanctuary to make room for wind turbine infrastructure. One of these factories would belong to Invenergy, whose founder and CEO Michael Polsky has given more than $400,000 to Democrats since 2016. His company shelled out $2.4 million to lobby the White House, federal agencies, and Congress this year.

The proposal reflects a conflict between efforts to fight climate change and those to preserve natural habitats. The Biden administration’s proposal would benefit green energy companies and generate renewable energy, but environmental groups have sounded the alarm on such projects noting that they kill birds and whales—the very wildlife that the marine sanctuary seeks to preserve. The proposal also reflects the green energy industry’s status as a major player in the Democratic Party. Biden has invested billions of taxpayer dollars into renewable energy projects backed by liberal billionaires, enriching them in the process.

Polsky’s major contributions from the past several years include a total of $72,000 to the House Democrats’ campaign committee in 2020 and 2022, and $35,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2016—the same year he poured $75,000 into Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Polsky has also donated to Republicans and Invenergy’s political campaign committee, but of the roughly $500,000 he has contributed to political causes since 2016, more than $400,000 has gone to Democrats according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

While Polsky did not contribute to Biden’s presidential bid in 2020, Invenergy employees gave more than $120,000 to his campaign, federal contribution records show.

This isn’t the first time Democrats have rewarded Polsky’s energy companies. In 2016, a Pennsylvania Democrat whose campaign Polsky funded helped secure him a $1.2 billion natural gas plant, the Free Beacon reported at the time. During Barack Obama’s presidency, Invenergy received more than $20 million in taxpayer-funded grants.

The Northern Chumash tribal council first petitioned for a 7,600 square mile marine sanctuary in the region in 2015, years before the Biden administration announced it wanted massive offshore wind turbine development in the same vicinity. The wind turbines will be built just outside the sanctuary’s northwestern boundary.

The feds’ latest proposal to cut into the marine sanctuary would slash about 29 miles of coastline and a total of about 1,400 square miles from the preserve as it was originally conceived, the tribal council said. Its final boundaries will be determined after a public comment period that ends Oct. 25. Meanwhile, the Biden administration already awarded ocean leases to Invenergy and two other energy corporations late last year, although they haven’t started construction.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)—which is in charge of creating the Chumash marine preserve—noted in proposing its alternative boundary to allow for industrial development that “certain concentrations of this infrastructure may not be compatible with a national marine sanctuary.”

The administration’s proposed revision must undergo public comment before being finalized. Regardless, the wind turbines could sabotage the preserve’s goals by killing off the whales, birds, and other marine life that it is supposed to protect. Environmentalists have warned that offshore wind factories on the East Coast may be killing whales—concerns that the Biden administration has condemned as “misinformation” even though more than 70 whales have died since December.

A spokesperson for the Department of Interior division overseeing the offshore wind development did not respond to questions about the turbines’ potential harm to whales but deferred to NOAA for queries about the sanctuary.

Biden’s Broadband Plan Subsidizes Delaware, Mansions, Vacation Homes, Senate Panel Finds thumbnail

Biden’s Broadband Plan Subsidizes Delaware, Mansions, Vacation Homes, Senate Panel Finds

By The Daily Signal

The Biden administration’s $42.5 billion high-speed internet program favors heavily Democrat regions and remote vacation homes, including President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, according to a new report by Republicans on the Senate Commerce Committee.

The Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment program, known as BEAD, designated as “unserved” locations places that include mansions, beachfront resort communities, and mountain vacation homes, the report says.

“Unserved” locations also include areas of Washington, D.C., close to the Smithsonian Institution.

“Although the unprecedented $42.45 billion in BEAD funding should be more than sufficient to bring broadband connectivity to every last household and business in America, the country cannot achieve this goal if the Biden administration wastes money through unnecessary, duplicative spending and anti-competitive, anti-consumer technology bias,” the report by committee Republicans says.

A federal agency, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, already has distributed the $42.5 billion.

The Senate report states:

Specifically, taxpayer dollars should not be used to:

1) Overbuild areas that already have broadband service or are slated to receive support from other federal or state programs.

2) Fund unnecessarily expensive solutions. The administration’s technology bias is not only inconsistent with the text of the law but is likely to lead to overspending at the expense of connecting unserved communities.

The report found that the Biden administration’s broadband program provided 10 states and territories with more than $10,000 per unserved location—including $547,254 per unserved location in the nation’s capital and $52,000 per unserved location in Delaware.

Delaware, Biden’s home state, got about $108 million in broadband aid for 2,166 “unserved” locations in June.

“One of these locations is the Biden Environmental Training Center … a state-run conference, training, and retreat center situated just 11 miles north of Rehoboth Beach,” the report says.

One of the president’s vacation homes is in Rehoboth Beach.

Of the 184 locations deemed to be lacking broadband in the nation’s capital, 58 are near the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. This includes well-traveled areas in the District of Columbia such as Butterfly Garden, Lion-Tiger Hill, and Otter Pond, according to the report.

The Senate report found duplication, noting that more than 5 million locations already were being funded by other federal programs for similar purposes.

Democrats’ Bipartisan Infrastructure Law set out how states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico would be allocated funding, including a guaranteed minimum of $100 million to every state, according to the Commerce Department, which oversees the broadband program.

“Just like [President] Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Rural Electrification Act brought electricity to nearly every home and farm in America, the Biden-Harris administration is connecting everyone in America to reliable, affordable high-speed internet by the end of the decade—including Americans in rural communities,” a Commerce Department spokesperson told The Daily Signal in a written statement on the issue Friday, adding:

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides the largest investment in internet expansion in history—including a minimum $100 million budget for each state—and requires funding go to the areas that need it most. Ultimately, states will determine the specific locations that receive funding and are required to account for other state and federal funding commitments to avoid duplication of efforts.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee, wrote in the summary of the report that $42 billion is more than enough money to deliver broadband to every American.”

Yet Cruz was skeptical that the tens of billions could be spent effectively on broadband improvements.

“Will it succeed in doing so? In light of these findings, count me skeptical,” Cruz wrote. “This report should serve as a call to action for the Biden administration and the states to ensure BEAD dollars are not funneled to duplicative and wasteful purposes, and instead are used to solve the nation’s connectivity challenges once and for all.”

The report also says that the Biden administration has a “technology bias” against nonfiber broadband and discourages what the committee Republicans say would be cost-effective and serve more areas.

This story was updated within an hour of publication to include a comment from a Commerce Department spokesperson.

Florida’s GOP Executive Committee Kills Loyalty Oath—Trump Will Be on the 2024 Ballot

By Dr. Rich Swier

On September 15th, 2023 Florida’s GOP Executive Committee during its quarterly meeting voted to remove and revoke their May 2023 rule change which would have, in effect, kept President Donald J. Trump off the Sunshine state’s ballot if he refused to sign the oath.

Florida resident President Donald J. Trump will now be on the 2024 Florida GOP primary ballot.

VIDEO:  Highways in The Sky  –  Aviation On The Road Ahead thumbnail

VIDEO: Highways in The Sky – Aviation On The Road Ahead


Highway in The Sky  video posted by  Jorj Baker  on  Vimeo.

It can now be revealed how air transportation became so flawed  –  that two (2) nominally qualified pilots were so spatially confused, as to literally fly a serviceable, modern airliner into the ocean, despite onboard installation of quote “Terrain Avoidance Warning Systems (TAWS)” unquote, which were functioning, while under controlled flight, at the time of accident.

In 1957, US Navy Commander George Hoover  –  a universal genius of far ranging intellect, vision & capacity  –  declassified his system of spatial awareness for Navy jet aircraft Aviators, known as the Command Flight Path Display (CFPD) and presented it to Capt. Dan Beard, Vice President of Flight for American Airlines (AAL), at a convening of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Aviation Committee, which Capt. Beard chaired.

The CFPD  –  informally dubbed the “Highway In The Sky”  –  was so intuitive & immediate for spatial awareness that it would end unintentional “Controlled Flight Into Terrain” (CFIT) altogether, in air transportation, military flight and the larger aviation community.

Inexplicably, Capt. Beard effected no action to install Cdr. Hoover’s system on American Airlines aircraft.

Over the years, mounting to decades, American Airlines and the industry, suffered ongoing fatal CFIT accidents, needlessly killing tens of thousands worldwide  –  including the devastating crash of an American Airlines Boeing 757 aircraft at Cali, Columbia on 20 December 1995, killing 160  –  in spatial confusion circumstances not dissimilar to the present Micronesia occasion of September 2018.

Three (3) years earlier, in 1992, First Officer P. E. Brooks, AAL, had briefed then AAL Vice President of Flight, Capt. Bill James, a former Naval Aviator, about Cdr. Hoover’s system, describing even then  –  some nearly 40 years after first releasing his Navy system to American  –  Cdr. Hoover was ready to help install the system on American’s fleet.

Capt. James was untimely killed a few months later, in a Park City, Utah skiing accident  –  ending for the nonce, official renewed initiative on the ‘Highway In The Sky’ at American, and sealing the fate of the AAL 757 passengers & crew at Cali, Columbia, still some three years out from their appointed rendezvous with mortality.

Ironically, unbeknownst to Capt. James  –  until just those few months prior to his own death  –  he had owed his life to a Geo. Hoover mandated ejection seat installation, while departing his troubled Navy F-8 Crusader.

James’ successor, Capt. Cecil Ewell, AAL, also a Navy Combat Aviator, was briefed in detail about the CFPD system, by FO Brooks in the very same office, in 1997, following receipt of the Cali, Columbia crash investigation report  –  in company of Capt. Rich LaVoy, AAL, President of the Allied Pilots Association (APA), Capt. Frank Nehlig, AAL (Ret.), and Mike Lewis, Director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Aviation Safety Program.

Capt. Ewell likewise effected no action to install Cdr. Hoover’s system on American aircraft.  Capt. Ewell did advocate installing the provisional Allied Signal, Inc. “Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System” (EGPWS) on AAL aircraft.

See, Highways In The SkyAviation On The Road Ahead, by FO Brooks, in the July/August 1997 issue of “FLIGHTLINE”, a publication of the Allied Pilots Association.

This very same EGPWS system was installed aboard & operating correctly, during the Boeing 737 2018 Micronesia crash.

Those onboard could not have known eventuality of their crash, had been predicted two (2) decades earlier  –  despite the EGPWS installation  –  in FO Brooks’ 1997 article.

On a flight deck jump seat, awaiting pushback at that time, departing Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (KDFW), American Airlines’ AMR CEO Don Carty, was shown still images of the ‘Highway In The Sky’ system by FO Brooks, exclaiming,

Wow, I didnt even know we had this stuff!”

Mr. Carty then readily accepted invitation for a complete briefing soon to follow.

Capt. Ewell later advised FO Brooks by telephone, CEO Carty would not be disposed to receive the CFPD briefing after all, nominally amid labor relations disputes, which had surfaced at American.

During this time, an AAL Boeing 727-223, crashed short of the runway, in controlled flight, low visibility conditions  –  not dissimilar to the present instant  –  at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (KORD).

At nearly the same time, in August 1997, a Korean Airlines (KAL) Boeing 747-200 Jumbo Jet crashed on approach to Guam  –  in low visibility conditions similar to the present case  –  killing 229.

The morning following the KAL crash, during a ‘Flight Deck Technology’ conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Capt. John Hutchison, British Airways (BA) Ret., a Boeing 747 and later Concorde pilot, offered remarks to several hundred breakfasting industry attendees stating,

The only way to solve the CFIT problem,

is to deploy the Highway In The Sky system

First Officer Brooks is advocating in his conference white paper.’

In November 1997, FO Brooks travelled to England to address the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) about the ‘Highway In The Sky’  –  receiving their whole hearted endorsement, along with an invitation to be made an RAeS Fellow.

RAeS reprinted an updated version of the “Flightline” article and circulated it to RAeS membership in 130 countries.

While in Europe, FO Brooks recruited participation of others, at centers of advanced ‘Synthetic Vision’ work in Delft & Amsterdam of The Netherlands and at Hamburg, Darmstadt, Frankfurt & Munich, Germany.

Special Effects Wizard Douglas Trumbull, of “2001: A Space Odyssey” movie renown, teamed with FO Brooks to produce the short film HIGHWAYS IN THE SKY:  AVIATION ON THE ROAD AHEAD“, premiered at the first of two “Synthetic Vision” conferences at NASA’s Langley, Virginia, Aviation Safety Program, attended by industry hundreds from around the world.

FAA Administrator Jane Garvey screened the “HIGHWAYS” film at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC in a briefing prepared especially for her, by attending board members of the Allied Pilots Association  –  including President Capt. LaVoyTreasurer First Officer Bob Morgan, AAL.  FO Brooks detailed to Mrs. Garvey, the impeccable credentials of highly experienced, Captain Nick Tafuri, AAL  First Officer Donnie Williams, AAL  a former US Air Force pilot, as professional airmen of the ill-fated Cali crash  –  much like the Micronesia crew.

Administrator Garvey issued a public statement, saying,

Highwaytype Synthetic Vision systems

represent a potentially significant enhancement

to the safety & efficiency of

the National Air Transportation System.’

Later the “HIGHWAYS” film was exhibited to NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin, his staff & American Airlines’ AMR Vice Chairman, Bob Baker (deceased), at an Industry Conference hosted by NASA’s Cleveland Lewis Research Center at Cleveland International Airport (KCLE), Ohio, in October 1998.

A former TRW, Inc. engineer involved in sensor-based spatial awareness, Administrator Goldin, in company with attending FAA Administrator Garvey on the dais, detailed to five or six hundred industry attendees, one day soon, a business jet would depart from Cleveland, arrive at Teterboro, NJ and return safely, using ‘Synthetic Vision’  –  never having seen anything through the cockpit windows.

It began to appear the ‘Highway In The Sky’ would at last lead to broad industry advancement.

That morning, at a private breakfast with FO Brooks, AMR Vice Chairman Baker had offered to set up a meeting in Seattle, WA with Boeing CEO Phil Condit, to prime the pump for a ‘Highways’ paradigm shift among vendors and at American.  To his credit, Baker later testified before Congressional committee, as to desirability of commencing ‘Synthetic Vision’ cooperation between industry, the FAA & NASA  –  though internal AMR company communications would later omit this portion of his testimony from an AAL employee news publication.

Based on the ‘Highways’ briefing for Administrator Goldin, NASA earmarked an additional 50 Million USD for Synthetic Vision programs in NASAs Aviation Safety Program.

Later in December 1998, Goldin convened an executive level meeting with aviation industry CEO’s, about larger cooperation with NASA on ‘Synthetic Vision’ and other necessary improvements to air transportation.  Mr. Goldin was at pains to demonstrate he regarded the industry as NASA’s customers.  In fact, he vigorously asserted this doctrine to fidgety NASA employees in attendance at the Cleveland conference  –  in front of everyone.

The industry knock was NASA folks enjoy ‘science projects’ with little practical effect in the marketplace.

To his credit  –  on his watch at least  –  this would not be so, for Administrator Goldin’s NASA.

Goldin specifically authorized the Space Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) to acquire topographic data over 80% of Earth’s land mass, creating the first ever near-global dataset of land elevations.  The ten day mission flew from 11 – 22 February 2000, producing terrain data necessary to populate the ‘Highway In The Sky’ Terrain Database for aviation.

Never before had industry & government functioned so well together.  It was happening!

Meanwhile, FO Brooks & Professor Wolfgang Kubbet of the University of Technology  –  Darmstadt, Germany agreed to write a proposal to NASA to fund creating terrain database protocols necessary for ongoing monitoring of changing surface obstacle data, into the future.  FO Brooks dubbed the effort the “International Terrain Database Integrity Group” (ITDIG).  Commercial aviation chart manufacturer Jeppeson, Inc. hungrily joined in & the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) stood up an industry committee to manage the work.  The Allied Pilots Association detailed a Graphic Navigation Committee member pilot to serve as secretary for the group.

NASA’s Aviation Safety Program issued a contract for the work.

NASA’s ’Synthetic Vision’ systems were flown on NASA 737 and 757 aircraft by technical pilots of American Airlines, Alaska Airlines and others  –  at KDFW, terrain challenged Reno International Airport (KRNO) & elsewhere.

Sadly, labor relations descended further into long-simmering acrimony for Americans Airlines and its employee groups in the late 1990’s and abruptly, advances on shifting paradigm for true spatial awareness in air transportation aircraft  –  using the “Highway In The Sky”  –  were quietly subsumed by what can now be judged, as pecuniary, shortsighted considerations.

At length, Cdr. Hoover (USN, Ret.) died and was interred with full honors at Arlington National Cemetery in March 1998, eulogized by former US Marine Corps Aviator, member of the ‘President’s Hundred’ at the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, the Marine Corps High Power Rifle Team and the APA Graphic Navigation Committee (GNC), First Officer Jeffrey Cooper, AAL. 

The US Navy refused a fly over.

American Airlines LAX Chief Pilot, Capt. Len Duncan, a former Navy S-3 Viking Aircraft Commander, refused First Officer Brooks’ attendance at the memorial despite request of Cdr. Hoover’s widow for a eulogy.  Captain Duncan had, a decade earlier, handed an American Airlines pilot employment application to FO Brooks, a then US Coast Guard HU-25A Guardian (Falcon Jet) Aircraft Commander.

Cdr. Hoover’s farsighted thumbprint on American Society is yet understood by naught but a handful of remaining admirers.

In fact, the flat panel display you are reading this recitation with now, extended as just one of many innovations in Hoover’s remarkable military, aeronautical & space programs.

Capt. Cecil Ewell, a Navy Combat veteran, (retired from AMR with full pension & perquisites intact) never realized his full charter for leadership in the air transportation sector, as Vice President of Flight for American Airlines, the largest air carrier in the world.

His oft recited airman maxim,

“Enter no airspace your mind has not already occupied,”

now echoes hollow with tinny irony, as deficiencies of the EGPWS system he advocated, are laid bare, in the continuing operation.

Capt. Rich Lavoy, a former Navy P-3 Orion Aircraft Commander, later retired from American Airlines, having been shooed from office by impatient peers embroiled in labor strife with AMR, who felt compulsion to shift from his long-view, visionary leadership style, as President of the pilot’s association, to a ledger-oriented, dollars & cents approach.  APA’s Graphic Navigation Committee  –  stood up to lead the industry to the necessary future beckoned by Cdr. Hoover’s insightful vision  –  was abdicated in near-sighted, even myopic focus, at the moment it was needed most for burgeoning air transportation.  This was especially true in non-English speaking cultures, where international standard, English-placarded flight decks, are nevertheless a necessity to operability in global air traffic.  Pilot Association board members never quite grasped that emoluments & remunerations they coveted to extract, from an adversarial Railway Labor Act (RLA) process, lay before them like a smorgasbord of professional credibility, in the industry leadership they eschewed to harvest, by shifting operational paradigms from ancestor worship, ‘steam gauge instrumentation’ to the compelling spatial freedom of graphic displays.

Design void, created by the American pilots association leaders’ folding their tent on ‘Synthetic Vision’, connects directly to the present Micronesia event.  They had turned their backs on perhaps the greatest opportunity that would ever present itself, to reshape their entrenched industry  –  mired in decades of railroad style, steam gauge thinking  –  to emerge as the new leaders of an improved, more humane, safer & more effective air transportation system.

CEO Don Carty of AMR stepped down, sometime after a teleconference call on the afternoon of September 11th, 2001, with his fellow US major airline CEO’s and the FAA Associate Administrator for Aviation Safety & Security, Lieutenant General Michael Canavan, US Army (Ret.), during which Mr. Carty and his peers strenuously & unanimously argued for getting US airliners immediately back up in the air, to prosecute airline business plans,

despite continuing, unmitigated, demonstrated threats,

to the American public and to the nation’s strategic infrastructure

by air terrorism, 

all of which registered on the chagrined, disbelieving ears of Administrator Canavan, who had just been seated in his FAA safety post, a short nine months earlier in December, 2000.

He would not last long.

Later it would be realized,

as many as a dozen aircraft had been targeted for use,

in attacks from coast to coast.

AMR and American Airlines would pay a dear price for Mr. Carty’s stunning hubris, when a week into October of 2001, an American Airlines Boeing 767 wide body aircraft suffered another breach attack upon its cockpit, nearly causing loss of the aircraft and its over 170 passengers & crew  –  while on descent into heavily populated metropolitan Chicago, as a disturbed assailant burst through the cockpit door at a run, grabbing the captain’s control yoke, intent upon crashing the aircraft from altitude.

Air Transportation owed its very continuity to the courageous flight crew onboard that day, including Capt. Dean Weber, AAL  &  First Officer Vince Belzer, AAL, who physically fought the intruder off and subdued him.

Capt. Weber managed to keep the wide body jet in controlled flight during the wild cockpit melee.

A former US Marine Corps Aviator and collegiate wrestler, FO Belzer exercised remarkable restraint in sparing the life of the assailant that day  –  literally while New York’s toppled Twin Towers were still smoldering, on the heels of September’s horrific 9/11 events just weeks earlier  –  realizing in the moment, a deadheading, uniformed American First Officer had raced forward, in company of other passengers, to appear at the cockpit door to assist FO Belzer with removing the attacker from the flight deck.  It was a sticky instant as  –  all alone  –  Vince was compelled to quickly decipher what purpose brought them en masse to his door step, just then.

Had that aircraft gone down  –  so quickly on the heels of 9/11 tragedies  –  it is certain the entire air transportation industry would have been grounded once more, this time for an extended period, pending results of the accident investigation & deployment of substantive measures to secure the National Air Transportation System, something yet to be fully achieved…even now.

So much for business plans.

Several weeks earlier, an internal American Airlines memo, entitled “Airline Safety Action Plan” (ASAP), prepared by FO Brooks, had predicted such ‘copycat’ attacks upon the flight decks of transport aircraft.

In reflection, it was easy to see  –  now that it was understood how simple it was to enter the flight deck  –  there would follow more of the same.

The ‘ASAP’ memo was circulated among pilot officials, AAL Flight Managers and forwarded to Senior Vice President of Operations for American, Gerard Arpey, (later AMR CEO) describing concrete measures, in a ‘2 week, 2 month, 2 year’ response, to secure the nation’s air carrier operations.

The ‘ASAP’ plan would go largely unheeded  –  save perhaps for some well-meaning, but ineffectual Congressional interest  –  even to present.

Capt. Frank Nehlig, a former combat proven Naval Aviation Pilot (NAP) like Geo. Hoover and former American Airlines Base Manager at Los Angeles International Airport (KLAX) – during Civil Reserve Air Fleet (CRAF) lift provided by American Airlines, supporting opposition to Communist incursion in Southeast Asia during the 1970’s  –  was laid to rest along the banks of the Delaware River, on a little rise, underneath the approach path to Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL).

He maintains quiescent vigil there, peradventure, a solitary sentinel  –  should his brethren stray below glideslope, of a future dark & stormy evening in Pennsylvania.

Captain Nehlig had accompanied FO Brooks on several enjoyable visits to Cdr. & Mrs. Hoover’s lovely Pacific Palisades home, to discuss American Airlines deployment of George’s ‘Highway’ system.

As his fellows long observed,

Fate is the Hunter.

First Officer Brooks was excoriated by airline functionaries, when he and other American pilots across the system, stood to voice candid objections, to continuing operations  –  absent substantive mitigation of security threats in the weeks & months following the demonstrated breaches of the 9/11 attacks.

He had refused to choke down the perverse Big Lie, controlling airline managers had foisted upon pilots & cabin crew, to parrot before the traveling public that  –  All is Well & Not to Worry.

Once again, his admonitions had proved prescient.

Out of these contested chapters, returned the long-denied capacity of US air transport pilots to keep & bear arms, for protection of their passengers, crew and the American public.

Ten years later, on 1 November 2011, before AMR would prospectively declare bankruptcy, as parent corporation of American Airlines, FO Brooks retired    per force, some fourteen years early  –  to preserve receipt of what pension had till then accrued.

Among the 10,000 pilots at American only some 270 senior airmen managed to correctly decipher the signals, departing with pensions intact, before that door would promptly swing shut forever.  Ironically, the sudden departure of these senior pilots  –  many populating the wide body, international routes, where the greater increment of revenue is yielded  –  forced the hand of CEO Arpey and his rapacious band of Wall Street privateers, to prematurely trigger the corporate bomb they had constructed, distastefully imploding the airline early, during the lucrative holiday travel season, as international crew ranks thinned alarmingly and prospect of further early retirements loomed in the AAL pilot corps, creating a great sucking sound, as revenue waned among unserviced routes & as pension obligations quickly mounted by an order of magnitude greater than customary  –  a double whammy.

Such were the sub-geniuses afoot at the helm of the world’s largest airline.

Their tens of millions in personal guarantees and more, at length did however, demonstrate a certain clever venality, by the bye.

Messieurs Arpey, Horton, et al, at AMR, while busy accounting their pre-packaged fortunes, would perhaps never realize the coded signals passed among experienced American airmen  –  in the clear, for all with ears to hear  –  portending of the Damoclean Sword about to befall them.


Enter no airspace your mind has not already occupied.

Nonetheless, for the larger part, the dawning realization by pilot leaders that they had inadvertently backed their way into the control they had long coveted at American Airlines, by finally withholding their further service & choosing whole, lump sum retirements, rather than bindings of tenuous lifetime annuities from the Airline  –  in an industry with virtually no margin over it’s previous century of blood, sweat, tears & travail, among the wind scoured bones of many a defunct carrier  –  came too late for pilots to wield with practical effect.

The power yet available to them in withholding their service entirely  –  RLA be damned  –  would soon be smartly curtailed forever.

On November 29th, 2011, AMR motioned for Chapter 11 Reorganization, in the US Southern District Court of Manhattan, advised by Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital, in a secret, prepared action  –  months in the planning  –  that would see some 40% of employee pensions and more, dissolved at a stroke, under summary gavel of a complicit, buccaneer bankruptcy court.

AMR had some $5 Billion in cash and tens of billions more  –  in American Airlines routes & assets  –  at time of its gratuitous filing.

The soaring American Airlines Eagle was now become a Predatory Capital Vulture.

In Matthew 6:24 we learn,

You cannot serve God and mammon.

T’was ever thus.

Thus did it come to pass, that at Chuuk in Micronesia, a perfectly good passenger jet could be accidentally driven into the water, with many lives precariously in the balance, in scheduled air transportation, as late as the year of our Lord 2018, while systems to preclude such an ignominious fate had flagged untended for six (6) decades and more, at the highest levels of air transportation authority.

And so it goes.

Hunter Biden Indicted On Three Gun Charges

By The Daily Caller

Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has been indicted on felony gun charges in Delaware, according to a partially redacted court filing by Department of Justice (DOJ) special counsel David Weiss.

Biden was indicted Thursday on three counts for providing false statements and knowingly possessing the gun while he was addicted to drugs, in connection with the acquisition of a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018, the indictment states. He faces a maximum prison sentence of ten years for the first and third offenses, with the second offense holding a maximum of five years, according to a defendant information sheet.

“Robert Hunter Biden, provided a written statement on Form 4473 certifying that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance, when in fact, as he knew, the statement was false and fictitious,” the indictment reads.


The DOJ said in a Sept. 6 status report that it was seeking an indictment for Biden’s felony gun charge by the end of the month. Biden’s legal team responded by arguing the pretrial diversion agreement proposed by the DOJ is legally valid, a notion the DOJ has disputed.

Hunter Biden was expected to plead guilty in July to two tax misdemeanors and sign a pretrial diversion agreement to avoid jail times for a felony gun charge. His plea agreement collapsed when Delaware U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika scrutinized an immunity provision tucked into the diversion agreement, resulting in a dispute between Biden’s defense counsel and DOJ special attorney Leo Wise.

Biden’s defense counsel Christopher J. Clark withdrew from the case in August because of his role in the failed guilty plea negotiations. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss special counsel in August and Weiss immediately requested to withdraw Biden’s two tax offenses to potentially charge him in a different jurisdiction. Noreika granted Weiss’ request and dismissed the tax charge without prejudice.

The House Ways and Means, Oversight and Judiciary Committees continue to investigate IRS whistleblower testimony accusing the DOJ of giving Hunter Biden special treatment in the tax case against him. House Oversight is also investigating Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and the role Joe Biden played in his son’s affairs.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday the House Ways and Means, Oversight and Judiciary Committees will be spearheading the House’s impeachment inquiry into Hunter Biden.

This is a breaking news story and it will be updated.

Appeals Court Affirms Ruling Preventing Biden Admin From ‘Significantly’ Encouraging Social Media Censorship thumbnail

Appeals Court Affirms Ruling Preventing Biden Admin From ‘Significantly’ Encouraging Social Media Censorship

By The Daily Caller

A federal appeals court partially affirmed a lower court’s finding on Friday that Biden administration officials violated the First Amendment by coercing social media companies to censor speech.

The Fifth Circuit affirmed a lower court’s judgement that the White House, Surgeon General, CDC and FBI violated the First Amendment while finding that “the district court erred in finding that the NIAID Officials, CISA Officials, and State Department Officials likely violated Plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights.” Yet it found the injunction, issued by District of Louisiana Judge Terry A. Doughty in July, was “vague and broader than necessary.”

“Ultimately, we find the district court did not err in determining that several officials—namely the White House, the Surgeon General, the CDC, and the FBI—likely coerced or significantly encouraged social-media, platforms to moderate content, rendering those decisions state actions,” the court wrote. “In doing so, the officials likely violated the First Amendment.”

Doughty granted a broad injunction barring President Joe Biden’s administration from collusion with pro-censorship nonprofit organizations, in addition to social media companies, in the free speech lawsuit Missouri v. Biden. The injunction found that government officials likely violated the First Amendment by suppressing protected speech, and the order states that government actors are barred from “collaborating, coordinating, partnering, switchboarding, and/or jointly working with” research groups and projects that advocate for censorship.

🚨BREAKING: The Fifth Circuit has upheld the district court’s order in our free speech case, Missouri v. Biden, enjoining the White House, Surgeon General, CDC, & FBI from violating the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.

— Attorney General Andrew Bailey (@AGAndrewBailey) September 8, 2023

The court axed nine of ten provisions of the injunction but kept provision six, which bars officials from “threatening, pressuring, or coercing” companies to remove speech, though it altered the language to avoid capturing “otherwise legal speech.”

“Defendants, and their employees and agents, shall take no actions, formal or informal, directly or indirectly, to coerce or significantly encourage social-media companies to remove, delete, suppress, or reduce, including through altering their algorithms, posted social-media content containing protected free speech,” the new provision reads. “That includes, but is not limited to, compelling the platforms to act, such as by intimating that some form of punishment will follow a failure to comply with any request, or supervising, directing, or otherwise meaningfully controlling the social-media companies’ decision-making processes.”

“Under the modified injunction, the enjoined Defendants cannot coerce or significantly encourage a platform’s content-moderation decisions,” the ruling explained. “Such conduct includes threats of adverse consequences—even if those threats are not verbalized and never materialize—so long as a reasonable person would construe a government’s message as alluding to some form of punishment.”

The court also extended the Biden administration’s request to fully freeze the injunction for ten days pending their application to the Supreme Court.

Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod, a George W. Bush appointee; Edith Brown Clement, a George H. W. Bush appointee; and Don R. Willett, a Trump appointee, issued the ruling.

During oral arguments, Elrod compared the Biden administration’s relationship with Big Tech to the mob, where they never actually “spell out” consequences but “everybody just knows.”

“The first brick was laid in the wall of separation between tech and state on July 4th, and this ruling is yet another brick,” Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey tweeted in response to the decision. “Missouri will continue to lead the way in the fight to defend our most fundamental freedoms.”

Air Force System Exists Just To Track ‘Progress’ In Diversity thumbnail

Air Force System Exists Just To Track ‘Progress’ In Diversity

By The Daily Caller

  • The Air Force is developing a data analytics tool to track “progress” toward achieving Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) goals, according to documents the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.
  • The SAF/DI DEIA Progress Dashboard generates a “score card” showing where racial, ethnic and gender disparity gaps are closing.
  • “The tool in reference is a progress dashboard which is under development and currently only utilized for internal SAF/DI use,” the office said in an Aug. 30 statement provided alongside the records.

The Air Force is developing a system that tracks changes in the percentages of racial minorities and women who join and advance through the Air Force to evaluate whether the service is achieving its so-called Diversity, Equity Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) goals, according to documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

A “DEIA Progress Dashboard” will be “highlighting and tracking [the Department of the Air Force’s] progress towards addressing racial, ethnic, and gender disparities,” according to a background paper included in records the DCNF obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. The tool helps users assess whether the Air Force is adhering to DEIA principles, generating a “score card” on each area of focus indicating how many disparity gaps are closing, according to the documents.

“The dashboard should be used … as a tool to drive meaningful discussion, reflection, and initiative generation centered around ground-truth facts,” the backgrounder, dated Feb. 28, 2023, states.

The dashboard enables analytics and analysis of year-over-year data to pinpoint specific areas among entrances, promotions, retention and other elements of the Air Force where disparities occur, according to the backgrounder.

The Air Force’s diversity office began work on the dashboard in an effort to increase “transparency and accountability” following the release in 2020 and 2021 of Racial Disparity Reviews, according to the documents. In categories of accessions, retention and career opportunities, women and racial-ethnic minority groups were often underrepresented, the reviews found.

“A disparity exists when the proportion of a racial-ethnic or gender group within a subset of a population is different from the proportion of the majority group subset” or the general Air Force population, according to the service’s Inspector General.

To break down movement toward reducing disparities, the DEIA dashboard tracks overall accessions and allows them to be broken down by different career types as well as undergraduate pilot training graduations by race, ethnicity and gender, the document shows. Data also include Air Force professional military education completion rates and promotions, and the dashboard lets users see the relative demographics of enlisted leadership, officers and civilian personnel.

For example, it might contain a graph showing how the percentage of women who join the Air Force each year has changed, according to the backgrounder. Or, a user can click on the “promotions” tab and look at the race and sex of people promoted to the O-6 rank relative to all of those eligible to compete for the same promotion slots.

The dashboard “is a living product that will be continually enhanced with additional data sources as they become available to ensure that [the Air Force] has the most comprehensive view into quantifiable disparities possible,” according to the documents.

A second tool, called the Secretary of the Air Force Office of Diversity and Inclusion (SAF/DI) Demographics Dashboard, allows “highly customizable queries of the intersectionality between race, ethnicity, and sex” in various contexts, according to another, undated document among the records obtained by the DCNF. But the document specified the demographics tool would be continually updated in response to feedback from users.

View DAF DEIA Progress Dashboard Figure F-13: Score Card Landing Page. 

A second background paper said the dashboard was available only for internal use within the SAF/DI, but the office hoped to make it accessible for organizational leaders and DEIA professionals throughout the Air Force.

“The progress dashboard automates a process that many DAF leaders currently engage in: comparing current state to a targeted future state and using the difference identified to help guide decisions, but not replace decision making,” the document says.

However, it does not appear the dashboard has undergone significant developments since the February backgrounder was issued. As of the backgrounder’s publication, Version 1 of the dashboard was fully developed for release and contained data from 2019 to 2022.

The Air Force initially referred to the dashboard as a “barrier analysis tool” in a February DEIA newsletter obtained by the DCNF. Later, the Air Force said “barrier analysis” did not adequately reflect the product’s intended application.

“Upon a deeper thought and explanation, the ‘barrier analysis tool’ as described in the February 2023 SAF/DI DEIA Enterprise Update, was a mischaracterization of the development of such tool at the time of publication. The tool in reference is a progress dashboard which is under development and currently only utilized for internal SAF/DI use,” the office said in an Aug. 30 statement provided alongside the records.

The DEIA dashboard supplements the Workforce Analytics Dashboard, launched nearly a year ago in October, Air Force spokesperson Laurel Falls told the DCNF.

“This tool provides rapid information to answer queries from all levels across the DAF and empowers leaders to access baseline information regarding diversity,” she said.

A slide deck accompanied the documents with examples of the landing pages and displays for both the DEIA and demographics dashboards, but the Air Force blacked out frames on pages apparently depicting snapshots of the demographics comparisons and progress meters, citing privacy reasons.

The Air Force hopes to build on the two dashboards with machine learning tools to identify root causes of disparities, forecast future trends and model possible solutions, a slide briefing for the Air Force secretary included in the records shows.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio Releases 40-Page Report On The Crisis Of Working, Non-Working Men thumbnail

Florida Senator Marco Rubio Releases 40-Page Report On The Crisis Of Working, Non-Working Men

By The Daily Caller

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio will release a 40-page report Tuesday regarding male labor participation that details the problems men face in their role as providers and shares evidence that working-aged men are having trouble finding quality jobs and are dropping out of the labor force at high rates.

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the report, which is titled “The State of the Working (And Non-Working) Man.” One section of the report, headlined “Behind the Decline,” explores various explanations for men’s problems in the workforce and includes sub-sections on “Deindustrialization and the Rise of the Service Economy,” “College for All,” “Mass Immigration,” “The Welfare and Disability Trap” and “The Cultural and Technological Revolution.”

The report also features a section titled “What to Do,” in which Rubio lays out how to get men back to work as well as how to equip young men to lead.

“Seven million men in the prime of life are currently sitting on the sidelines; millions more are under-employed and underpaid, with little chance of achieving a middle-class life. Building pathways for these men to re-engage with the workforce will be difficult, especially for the millions of men who remain out of the labor force for long periods of time,” the report reads. “Bringing back the kind of widespread, well-paying jobs that enabled past generations of Americans to form families and thrive will be as challenging a task, if not more challenging. Nevertheless, a number of reforms could dramatically shift the landscape and restore strong connections to work for millions of men.”


(DAILY CALLER OBTAINED) — … by Henry Rodgers

“I know from personal experience how important it is for boys to have good men as role models. Unfortunately, fewer boys have fathers today or positive male role models of any kind. This report sheds light on the problems men face as workers and offers policymakers solutions that will build up men to be better providers, husbands, fathers, and community leaders,” Rubio told the Caller.

“I am committed to working on these issues because I believe that we can build a better future for our boys and men, and for our country as a whole,” he added.

Rubio plans to release the report later Tuesday.

Biden Brags About ‘Strongest Economy In The World’ While 61% Of Americans Live Paycheck-To-Paycheck thumbnail

Biden Brags About ‘Strongest Economy In The World’ While 61% Of Americans Live Paycheck-To-Paycheck

By The Daily Caller

President Joe Biden bragged Friday that the United States has the “strongest economy in the world,” while a majority of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck.

The president touted the economy in a Friday address about the August jobs report, which showed the U.S. added 187,000 nonfarm payroll jobs, and the unemployment rate rose to 3.8% over the past month. While Biden celebrated the August jobs report, about 61% of Americans, high and low-income alike, are living paycheck-to-paycheck, according to July research from LendingClub, a financial services company.

“It wasn’t that long ago that 20 million Americans were out of work,” Biden said. “But the American people didn’t give up. They never give up. They’ve never given up. And today we have the strongest economy in the world. The lowest inflation rate among the major economies. 13.5 million new jobs. You’ve heard me say it before, and I am going to keep saying it, my dad said a job is about a lot more than the paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about being able to look your kid in the eye and say ‘honey it is going to be okay’ and mean it.”

Nearly eight in 10 consumers who make less than $50,000 a year are unable to pay for their future bills until they receive their next paycheck, according to LendingClub’s research. About 4 in 10 Americans who are earning more than $100,000 are facing similar struggles.

Economists anticipated the country would add 170,000 jobs in August after 187,000 jobs had been added in July, Reuters reported. The healthcare sector added 71,000 and the hospitality sector added 40,000 jobs for the month, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data.

Inflation stayed high in July, increasing by 3.2% for 2023, and up from 3.0% in June. Inflation was a high 9.1% in July 2022.

Operation Depopulation: Dissecting the Death Dart Series thumbnail

Operation Depopulation: Dissecting the Death Dart Series

By Carolyn Blakeman

This is the first in a series of columns I am writing on the Covid jab.

Most of us have heard reports of the jab injuries coming out. Whether myocarditis, blood clots, the newly discovered “SADS” (sudden adult death syndrome), immune disorders and the uptick in cancers; the Covid shot is clearly not safe nor does it work. Every jabbed person I know has also gotten the virus, most multiple times. So, all these people got an experimental shot of a novel technology that has obvious risks for absolutely no reason at all. We can thank our politicians and the worthless media for this atrocity.

So why did the mainstream media, and our elected and unelected officials push this experiment on the American people without the proper safety data or trials needed to justify a mass vaccination campaign in the middle of the pandemic?

This question I will cover later in the series. Well, we can speculate for several reasons, but the most evident reasons are depopulation, money, and control. Let us break these down.

First, depopulation is an obvious reason. In 1992, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, 178 world leaders signed the United Nation’s document called Agenda 21. The name has changed quite a few times to keep the public confused and give it a nice spin. It has also been called Agenda 2030, Smart Growth, Substantiable Development, Growth Management, among others. However, all those names are describing the original document, Agenda 21, or agenda for the 21st century.

The term Sustainable Development was coined in 1987 in a document called Our Common Future, produced by the U.N Commission on Environment and Energy Development. That committee was chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, the former Prime Minister of Norway, former head of the W.H.O. and the Vice President of the Socialist International organization. This document led to the Earth Summit which created the global plan included in Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 calls for a profound reorientation of human society and collective decision making, unlike anything we have ever seen before. It consists of an unprecedented deployment of human and financial resources that will affect every human interaction and will be integrated in every person’s day-to-day life. It was signed by George H.W. Bush in 1992 as a soft treaty and every president except Trump has reaffirmed its goals.

Agenda 21 can be broken down into three parts: economic equality or redistribution of wealth, social justice, and environmentalism. It calls for the elimination of private property and private transportation and replaced with urban housing and public transit. This plan was slow growing for the next thirteen years. Cities and towns worldwide joined ICLEI, a UN accredited organization that encourages smart growth. But the housing crash of 2007-2008 opened the door for Agenda 21. President Obama gave us a glimpse of this in his campaign speech in Rosenburg, Oregon. He said, “we can’t drive our SUV’s, and you know, eat as much as we want, and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times, whether we live in the desert or we live in the tundra, and just expect that every other country is going to say, “oh, okay, you go ahead and keep on using 25% of the world’s energy even though you only account for 3% of the population. We will be fine, do not worry about us.”

Since 2008, our government has been actively implementing Agenda 21 using federal grants, the HUD, and the EPA. Agenda 21’s goals are not new; they are old school Marxism repackaged.

Another goal of Agenda 21 is depopulation. The goal is to depopulate the planet by 90% to lessen the environmental impact and protect the planet for the future. So how convenient that the man made Covid pandemic comes along which has continued to kill people going on now for three years. If they do not get you with the deadly hospital protocols, then they will kill you with the genetic vaccines. The virus and the jab are both manufactured bioweapons that serve the purpose of wiping out as many people as possible. The numbers are clearly under reported, but according to the worldwide ticker, so far, the virus has killed almost seven million and the jab deaths are increasing daily.

One study stated that the jabs were killing up to 10,000 a day and that is only the start. Not to mention the reports of miscarriages and infertility in both women and men among the so called vaccinated. The rising death toll can be attributed to the following, all which will be covered in future columns of my Death Dart series:

  1. Mass vaccination in the middle of the campaign which keeps the virus mutating,
  2. The jab being made of deadly heavy metals and not effective against the virus,
  3. Denial and a disinformation campaign of safe early treatments,
  4. and Deadly, experimental hospital protocols.

We can only imagine the total number of innocent humans that these bioweapons will kill before this dark time in our history is over. But we do know this goes right in line with Agenda 21’s goals and the desires of the globalist elites, such as Bill Gates.

“If we do a really good job on vaccines, health care and reproductive services, we can at least lower the population perhaps by 10 to 15 percent.” Bill Gates

We must move quickly and create our own agenda, an agenda to destroy Agenda 21.

U.S. proposes new ‘programming’ to queer up foreign nations

‘Some countries have experienced significant backsliding’

By WND News Services, August 6, 2023 at 6:23pm

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) released new guidelines and recommendations for addressing and promoting LGBTQ programs in foreign nations.

Some of these programs include appointing LGBTQ “focal point” leaders and aiming to support youth during their “self-identification.”

“USAID plays a crucial role in agenda setting, promulgating norms and precedents, and encouraging multi-sectoral investments that support LGBTQI+ inclusive development globally,” the framework reads.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) recommended new LGBTQ advancements and programs for its 100+ locations across the globe, according to a new policy framework released Wednesday.

The USAID aims to promote pro-LGBTQ policies and increase the presence of LGBTQ “programming” via its mission locations throughout the world, which include Africa, South America and the Middle East, according to the 2023 “LGBTQI+ Inclusive Development Policy.” These programs include appointing LGBTQ “focal point” leaders, integrating LGBTQ “inclusion” into crisis response and working with foreign local LGBTQ groups to influence and drive policy.

“USAID plays a crucial role in agenda setting, promulgating norms and precedents, and encouraging multi-sectoral investments that support LGBTQI+ inclusive development globally,” the framework reads. “While recent momentum in some countries toward repealing and reforming laws that criminalize same-sex conduct—including many anti-LGBTQI+ laws inherited from colonial powers—is cause for cautious optimism, some countries have experienced significant backsliding.”

The 5 Worst Lies of the Biden Administration thumbnail

The 5 Worst Lies of the Biden Administration

By Family Research Council

For the Biden administration, pushing abortion and transgender ideology is a top priority at all levels of government. Sometimes, this priority even overshadows their commitment to the truth. And the Biden administration has told some real whoppers. But don’t take my word for it; consider the facts for yourself. Here are the top five lies of the Biden administration regarding abortion and transgender ideology.

1) Weakened safety standards for the abortion pill regimen does not pose a threat to women.

On January 3, 2023, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permanently removed a “requirement that mifepristone be dispensed only in certain health care settings, specifically clinics, medical offices, and hospitals (referred to as the ‘in-person dispensing requirement’).” At the same time, it created a new program under which pharmacies such as Walgreens and CVS can become licensed to distribute mifepristone.

Mifepristone is the first of two drugs taken to induce a chemical abortion. FDA in 2011 placed mifepristone under the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation System (REMS) due to reports of adverse events up to and including death. REMS is reserved “for certain medications with serious safety concerns.” By removing the in-person dispensing requirement from the REMS governing the use of mifepristone, FDA enabled abortion pill dispensaries to ship the pills to women without any oversight from a health care practitioner.

On December 16, 2021, the FDA had “determined that the data support modification of the REMS to reduce burden on patient access and the health care delivery system and to ensure the benefits of the product outweigh the risks.”

On January 22, 2023, President Biden issued a memorandum endorsing FDA’s action, saying that it was “evidence-based” and taken “after an independent and comprehensive review of the risks and benefits.” He directed the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to work together to further advance distribution of the abortion pill regimen. In compliance with this directive, Attorney General Merrick Garland and HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra both denounced an April court decision blocking the distribution of mifepristone (the decision is currently on hold).

In reality, the best available evidence shows that “chemical abortion has led to a surge in emergency room visits and higher rates of complications,” according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI). According to a peer-reviewed, 17-year longitudinal study of Medicaid claims data, in the 30 days following a chemical abortion, women have a 22% greater risk of visiting the emergency room for any reason, and a 53% greater risk of visiting the emergency room for an abortion-related reason, when compared with a surgical abortion.

Peer-reviewed studies of comprehensive datasets in Finland, Sweden, and California also show higher complication rates from chemical abortion. In Finland, a study of 42,619 abortions found that one fifth of all chemical abortions resulted in complications, a rate four times greater than for surgical abortions. In California, a study found the major complication rate for chemical abortions was four times greater than for surgical abortions. In Sweden, a study found complications of chemical abortions “increased significantly during 2008-2015 without any evident cause.”

Although President Biden called the FDA review “comprehensive” and “evidence-based,” the data they reviewed was far less robust than these peer-reviewed studies. “Starting in 2016, the FDA chose to only require reports of death associated with the abortion pill, making their dataset woefully incomplete,” said Dr. James Studnicki, CLI’s vice president of Data Analytics. The FDA review ignored this substantial evidence of high complication rates when it freed the distribution of chemical abortion pills from professional oversight.

2) Military readiness requires taxpayers to cover abortion-related expenses for servicemembers.

On October 20, 2022, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued a memorandum titled, “Ensuring Access to Reproductive Health Care,” which directed the Department of Defense (DOD) “to ensure that our Service members and their families can access reproductive health care.” On February 16, 2023, the DOD finalized the policy, granting up to 21 days of “administrative absence to non-covered reproductive health care,” subsidizing “travel for non-covered reproductive health care services,” and loosening “command notification of pregnancy” to benefit abortion.

DOD has claimed the policy will “increase readiness.” After Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) announced he would block senior-level military promotions until DOD ended the policy, President Biden accused Tuberville of “jeopardizing our national security over domestic social issues. Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby was asked last month, “Why is the new DOD policy on abortion critical to military readiness?” He responded that paying for abortion-related travel was a “foundational, sacred obligation of military leaders.”

In reality, federal law prohibits the DOD from using taxpayer funds to promote abortion. Under 10 U.S. Code § 1093, DOD funds and facilities “may not be used to perform abortions except where the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term or in a case in which the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest.” On December 15, 2022, 66 members of Congress wrote to Secretary Austin notifying him that “funding travel and transportation to obtain non-covered, elective abortions through the DOD would, in and of itself violate federal law. It also contradicts DOD’s past recognition, interpretation, and implementation of this law.”

3) Self-perceived gender identity always overrides biological distinctions between the sexes.

On January 20, 2021, President Biden issued an executive order directing federal agencies to interpret all “laws that prohibit sex discrimination” to “prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation,” extending the Supreme Court’s Title VII-specific reasoning in Bostock v. Clayton County to every federal law. A separate executive order on this date ordered the president’s Domestic Policy Council to “coordinate efforts to embed equity principles [including with ‘respect to … gender identity’], policies, and approaches across the Federal Government.”

In the months that followed, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Education, the DOJHHS, and other agencies have faithfully implemented this directive to expand the presence of biological males in women’s shelters, women’s locker rooms, and women’s sports, reinterpreting the Fair Housing Act, Title IX, and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act. FRC Action has compiled a full accounting of the dozens of actions taken by Biden administration in pursuit of this goal.

In reality, physical differences between men and women are too important to ignore. Biological males are, on average, taller, heavier, and stronger than females, which gives them an upper hand in many types of sports — not to mention a predatory advantage when they win admission into women’s-only spaces. Males have won over 30 championships in women’s-only sporting events dating back to 2003. These distinctions are so obvious that even pro-LGBT Democrats cannot entirely ignore them. Last month, a Democratic congressman suggested erecting “barriers” in women’s locker rooms to protect women who felt uncomfortable changing next to a biological male with fully intact anatomy. And a Democratic senator tweeted, “We cannot avoid the biological/evolutionary differences between men and women.”

4) Civically engaged American citizens are violent domestic terrorists.

On October 4, 2021, Garland directed the FBI to investigate a “disturbing spike in harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school administrators, board members, teachers, and staff.” That directive came five days after the National School Boards Association asked President Biden to investigate parents who spoke out at school board meetings for “domestic terrorism and hate crimes,” in a letter prompted by Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. Earlier this year, the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government determined that the FBI had, in fact, used counterterrorism resources to investigate parents. Needless to say, the “spike” in violence was entirely fabricated.

On September 23, 2022, 25 heavily armed federal agents conducted a pre-dawn raid on the home of pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him in front of his wife and seven children. The DOJ indicted Houck under the FACE Act, alleging that two years ago he violently pushed an abortion facility escort to the ground, when he was only defending his 12-year-old son from an aggressive, profanity-laced tirade. Houck had offered to voluntarily surrender months earlier, but apparently the DOJ’s resources were better spent on a SWAT-style raid. This January, a jury acquitted Houck of the charges brought against him.

In February 2023, a leaked memo from the FBI field office in Richmond, Va. revealed the bureau was spying on “radical traditionalist” Catholic communities. After months of FBI stonewalling, the Weaponization Subcommittee finally obtained documents proving that the Richmond field office coordinated with at least two other field offices, and that the investigation had gone as far as seeking to embed undercover sources.

In reality, each of these episodes simply involved ordinary citizens peacefully living their lives, practicing their faith, and properly engaging in the democratic process. In contrast with the previous lies, once caught, the Biden administration could muster no defense against the obvious impropriety of their behavior except pretending it never happened, Nevertheless, the fact remains that the Biden administration has weaponized federal law enforcement resources to investigate private citizens for nothing more than being civically engaged.

5) Protecting minors from harmful, irreversible gender reassignment procedures is illegal discrimination and potentially fatal.

On July 25, 2022, HHS announced a proposed rule under Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, which would force health insurers to cover gender reassignment procedures for minors and could financially coerce doctors to perform them.

Far from an isolated affair, promoting gender reassignment procedures is official Biden administration policy — although the federal role is less direct than states. The DOJ has intervened in lawsuits to block laws protecting minors from gender reassignment procedures in Alabama and Tennessee. The DOJ also tried to force two Catholic hospital associations to provide and insure gender reassignment procedures, in violation of their religious beliefs.

State actions to protect minors from gender reassignment procedures “callously threaten to harm children and their families just to score political points,” alleged President Biden in a March 2022 statement. He appealed to the political conclusions of “respected medical organizations” to argue that “access to gender-affirming care for transgender children can benefit mental health, lower suicide rates, and improve other health outcomes.”

HHS Secretary Becerra agreed in a June 2022 press release, “This year, we have unfortunately seen an alarming rise in state laws and other actions that discriminate against our LGBTQI+ children and youth. … We as a Department recommit to ensuring every American can access health care — including gender-affirming care.” This remained the official White House position as of April 2023, when Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said gender reassignment procedures for minors is “something for a child and their parents to decide” and certainly “not something we believe should be decided by legislators.”

In reality, confused children are often “given no choice” about pursuing gender reassignment procedures, according to detransitioner Prisha Mosley. “They said it was transition or suicide. … I was told, ‘You will kill yourself if you don’t go through with these treatments.’” A whistleblower account from one transgender center said the providers even disregarded the refusal of the custodial parent and proceeded with gender reassignment procedures anyways.

The physical reality of gender transitioning is even more brutal. One young detransitioner said the reassignment procedures performed on him did not make him a woman, but they did make him a “patient for life.” Young people who begin puberty blockers almost universally proceed to cross-sex hormones and often mutilating surgery. Cross-sex hormones can cause “irreversible infertility, while surgeries cause irreversible loss of healthy, functioning organs. Yet Biden said those opposing these gruesome procedures are the ones harming children.

On each of these five points, the Biden administration is driven more by ideology than by the truth. Abortion-by-mail is not safe for women. Taxpayer-funded abortion travel is not necessary for military readiness. Biological sex does matter more than gender identity in many contexts. Citizens aren’t domestic extremists just because they advocate policies the Biden administration doesn’t like. And gender reassignment procedures are good for nobody, especially not minors. With the constant drumbeat of fiction to the contrary, we must keep telling the truth — and saying it loud.
