‘I’m from the Government, and I’m Here to Vaccinate’

Most people were shocked when the president wanted to go door-to-door with his vaccine campaign — but that’s only the half of it.

Repudiating Roe: The Most Important Abortion Case in 30 Years

The Court has agreed to […]

Knock, Knock, It’s Big Brother Joe

 After the Biden administration failed to meet its target of vaccinating 70 percent of Americans by July 4, the president suggested he may turn to drastic measures to boost vaccination rates, including sending people “door-to-door — literally knocking on doors.” The remark earned swift criticism. Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Texas) tweeted, “BIG red flags anytime the […]

From My Mother’s Womb, You Are My Strength

Randall Smith: If we turn a blind eye on abortion, can we really face the God who made both them and us? More is at stake than Republican vs. Democrat.

The Covid McGuffin

The brilliant director Alfred Hitchcock often used the term “McGuffin” to describe one of his favorite plot devices—an object or event that set the plot in motion, while essentially inconsequential in itself. And while Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps and North by Northwest provide stellar samples, the ultimate exemplar of this phenomenon is The Maltese Falcon […]

Fatherlessness Can Be Fatal

There were more shootings in Chicago over the weekend. The irony of these shootings, in which 52 were shot and 5 died (Chicago Sun-Times Wire, 6/21/21), is the weekend itself….Father’s Day weekend. Some sociologists note that what we’re seeing in large part are quite often the results of fatherlessness in America. Mark J. Perry, a […]

Quacks in the Ivory Tower: How Conspiracy Theorizing Took Over Lockdown Science

Is the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) simply a front for a secret global eugenics plot, hatched at AIER by the British Ministry of Defence and financed by the Koch Brothers as part of an ongoing effort to force climate change, tobacco, and Covid-19 infections on our senior citizens? Such claims may sound like the farcical […]

Racism Is Alive And Well At Yale

Progressive Lawmakers Are Working on a Backdoor Plan to Quietly Take Us One Step Closer to Socialist Healthcare

Bipartisan talks over compromise spending legislation are ongoing in Congress, but the prospects of the two parties reaching a compromise aren’t exactly bright.

Ivermectin Therapy Suppressed by WHO and Censored Online

Back in the 1970s, the Union of Concerned Scientists, along with scores of other influential left-leaning groups, were in genuine opposition to corporate special interests. That was then.

Hanson: A Chinese Lab Virus? So Now What?

Stolen election? Now what? A Chinese Lab Virus? So Now What? In some way, many Americans are naïvely hopeful that COVID-19 was a one-off, ill-thought-out, gain-of-function laboratory accident. But what if it wasn’t quite so simple ? By Victor Davis Hanson, June 16, 2021: For over a year, the American establishment and media borg have […]

Don’t Be Fooled: Gender Identity Policies Don’t Follow the Science

During the past presidential election, you may remember seeing black yard signs with lists of creed-like statements written in rainbow text.

This Is Life Under State Media

The legacy press scoffed at the lab-leak theory for months. Now they minimize it while running cover for Dr. Fauci.

In 1957, an accident at a plutonium production site near […]
