Brian C. Joondeph, M.D. contributor to American Thinker: Just because mRNA vaccines represent new technology doesn’t mean it won’t work or it’s bad. But it is a leap of faith assuming genetic code received from China is accurate and doesn’t contain any malicious bits. We can now print 3D organs. If an adversary country sent us computer code to 3D print a new kidney, would we rely on such code to be safe and effective?

Dr. Anthony Fauci on ABC This Week Sunday: “The fact is, if you get infected, even if you are without symptoms, you very well may infect another person who may be vulnerable … So in essence, you are encroaching on their individual rights.”

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: “ The irony of Fauci leading the global response to a pandemic that he may have created becomes starker by the day.”

Kurt Schlichter contributor to Townhall: The ridiculous mask kabuki that Lame Duck Dictator Nancy Pelosi is attempting to impose upon the Party of Freedom is the perfect opportunity for the GOP to demonstrate that it is not a flock of hapless, wriggling invertebrates. A little spine shown right about now would go a long way, not only to winning back Congress in 2022 by an even bigger margin than currently anticipated but to fixing the institution that power-mad harridan has grievously damaged. It might mean accepting that Republicans will be booted from the House for a bit, but who cares? We have zero input anyway. Make a stand.


Weber: Meadows says former president, team making ‘plans to move forward in a real way’ for 2024 run
Former President Donald Trump is “moving forward” with a 2024 presidential run in a “real way,” says his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows. Meadows made the comments Friday night on Newsmax after he and others in Trump’s inner circle – whom he referred to as “cabinet members – recently met at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, to discuss the former GOP president’s political future.

(7/30/2021) Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Voters in the Great State of Wyoming want clear majority winners in elections, and the only mechanism that accomplishes majority victors is a Run-Off Election, pitting the top two candidates against each other. Conservative Republicans in the Wyoming State Legislature like Senator Bo Biteman and Representative Chip Nieman led this effort. Unfortunately and sadly for Wyoming voters, RINO State Legislators stood in the way, defeating the Run-Off Election bills. The easiest way to defeat Deplorable Liz Cheney is by having only ONE Conservative candidate run and WIN! Wyoming Patriots will no longer stand for Nancy Pelosi and her new lapdog RINO Liz Cheney!

Gonzales: American Zapatistas
. . . the established political order views American populists with the same hostility as Mexican Zapatistas, who rose in opposition to neoliberalism harboring an antipathy for it similar to Pat Buchanan’s. The new global political-corporate “counterterrorism” effort brings this into view. On July 26, Reuters reported that the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT) would significantly expand its operations to “crack down on material from white supremacists and far-right militias.” Facebook, YouTube, Microsoft, and Twitter formed GIFCT in 2017 as an independent intelligence apparatus. It will use data from Five Eyes, an international intelligence alliance of dozens of agencies from the CIA to MI6, to elevate the Proud Boys to the status of al-Qaeda. […] According to our new public-private national security apparatus, what qualifies as extremism or terrorism? Anything that can be characterized as “antisemitism, Islamophobia, racism, anti-immigrant, anti-Black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Asian bigotry,” Reuters reports. In other words, every slur that the Left—which is, whether it will acknowledge it or not, the establishment faction—hurls at its enemies.

Pullmann: If You Don’t Suspect Deep State Provocation At The Jan. 6 Riot, Start Paying Attention
It’s not only reasonable but required to ask at the outset of leftists’ 1/6 “Truth Commission”: How much of what led to Donald Trump supporters “storming the capitol” was a setup? BuzzFeed recently revealed the alleged Gov. Gretchen Whitmer “kidnapping plot” was instigated and coordinated by FBI informants who collected a handful of malcontents as an apparent cover story for manufacturing a “domestic terrorism plot” to foil in front of the cameras. There’s plenty of evidence this kayfabe is not just an isolated incident but the way the security state really does business. As the un-FOIA-able DC Capitol Police establish cross-country beachheads in Florida and California and prepare to deploy U.S. military surveillance tech used on insurgents in Afghanistan, it’s well past time to start shutting this Hydra down. It is well-established by now that U.S. intelligence agencies use informants, lies, and leaks to frame people, causes, and political opponents of the regime. This is so well-established that it would be surprising if the one Capitol riot Democrats are pursuing did not include FBI or other federal spy state provocateurs. And if that’s the case, then our country is in deep, deep sh-t. For readers who have been under a rock for the last five years, let’s review just the recent highlights of spy agency, Democrat, and media collusion that would lead one to suspect the Jan. 6 events as part of this pattern.

Sundance: Anthony Fauci Claims With COVID There Are No More Individual Rights
I’m more worried about what is happening behind the scenes in the non-COVID universe while everyone is distracted by the purposeful weaponization of the healthcare institutions. It’s the other thing, the unseen activity, that is most troublesome when the leftists are this entrenched on a singular narrative. In this clip from Anthony Fauci on ABC This Week Sunday, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, claims that individual rights no longer exist during the era of COVID-19. When you consider the mindset of the far-left, his opinion on communal rights -vs- individual rights is right in line with the collectivist perspective. These people are dangerous.

Schlichter: The GOP Should Revolt Against Lame Duck Pelosi’s Dictatorship
The ridiculous mask kabuki that Lame Duck Dictator Nancy Pelosi is attempting to impose upon the Party of Freedom is the perfect opportunity for the GOP to demonstrate that it is not a flock of hapless, wriggling invertebrates. A little spine shown right about now would go a long way, not only to winning back Congress in 2022 by an even bigger margin than currently anticipated but to fixing the institution that power-mad harridan has grievously damaged. It might mean accepting that Republicans will be booted from the House for a bit, but who cares? We have zero input anyway. Make a stand. Here you go, GOP. Here’s your game plan. Get together. Throw your grody face-thongs into the trash. Walk into the People’s House. Refuse to obey her erratic and bizarre commands to submit. The ball is in your court, Lame-O Duck-O. Maybe she’ll “fine” you. Great. Have lawyers on standby to go to court for an injunction against her unilateral attempt to alter your pay as legislators. Courts exist to solve disputes, and you have a good case. Can she also dock your pay for…not voting as she sees fit? Why or why not, Democrat ambulance chasers? Let’s have that fight.

Daily Wire News: DeSantis Signs Executive Order Giving Parents Power To Choose Whether To Mask Their Kids At School
“Today, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 21-175, in response to several Florida school boards considering or implementing mask mandates in their schools after the Biden Administration issued unscientific and inconsistent recommendations that school-aged children wear masks,” the governor’s office said in a statement on Friday. “The Florida Department of Health will enter rulemaking in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education to protect parents’ freedom to choose whether their children wear masks.” DeSantis said at a press conference where he signed the executive order that “the federal government has no right to tell parents that in order for their kids to attend school in person, they must be forced to wear a mask all day, every day.”

Jacobs: New Study Shows Just How Much School Lockdowns Harm Innocent Kids
As the nation grapples with an increase in COVID cases due to the spread of the Delta variant, a recent report makes clear one thing policymakers should not do in response: Close down in-person learning. The study, from the consulting firm McKinsey, shows how school shutdowns and lockdowns set back millions of American students—and hurt the poorest and most vulnerable families hardest. It reiterates how prolonged school closures, instigated by overly cautious politicians at the behest of intransigent teachers’ unions, may have set back an entire generation of American children. The McKinsey report uses testing results from spring 2021, translating points-based scores into a “months-of-learning-lost” metric and comparing this year’s results to pre-pandemic levels. The results show that, on average, elementary school students lost the equivalent of five months—or half a school year—of learning in math, and four months in reading. Results varied by race and income, and unsurprisingly, students of color and from poorer families suffered most: . . .

Black conservative review: Black mother DESTROYED CRT at school board meeting (Blexit)

Buck: Denying CRT
The left is playing dumb on the ubiquity of its radical ideology in our schools. Two contradictory falsehoods about Critical Race Theory (CRT) pop up again and again: that it’s just teaching about racism, and that it’s not even in our schools. CRT defenders from MSNBC host Joy Reid to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar insist it’s just an esoteric theory discussed in law schools, and that conservatives are complaining about a phantom. If only we would read the real critical race theorists, they say, instead of listening to right-wing ideologues, then we’d understand what CRT really is, and the preposterousness of imagining that it’s become an essential part of public school curricula. Harvard professor Jarvis Givens contends that CRT is just “about teaching the history of racial inequality and the history of racism.” Similarly, Anne Applebaum at The Atlantic argues that the recent slate of CRT bans point to a “consensus in a segment of the Republican Party” that “schoolchildren should not be taught the history of racism in America.” In reality, these contentions are demonstrably false. Critical Race Theory is radical in its outlook and fully present in American schools.

VDH: Incompetence + Arrogance = Woke
We know the nature of mass hysterias in history, and how they can overwhelm and paralyze what seem to be stable societies. We know the roots and origins of the cult of wokeness. And we know, too, how such insanity—from the Salem witch trials to Jacobinism to McCarthyism—can spread, despite alienating most of the population, through fear and the threat of personal ruin or worse. These are the dark sides of the tulip, hula-hoop, and pet-rock fads, the mass obsessions so suited to past affluent Western societies. But does wokeism serve another purpose as well? Specifically, does it either hide preexisting incompetence or fuel it? In the last 18 months, we have seen most of our major institutions go woke and spend considerable amounts of time, capital, and labor on what might be called “commissarism.” Yet in their zeal to rectify society in general and sermonize, virtue signal, pontificate, and perform to the public, many institutions are increasingly failing at what they were established to do. Of course, public servants have long suffered the “Bloomberg effect”—focusing on misdemeanors to virtue signal competence as penance for failing to solve the existential crises. If you cannot clear New York City of snow in a timely manner, then lecture the trapped on everything from global warming to the dangers of super-sized soft drinks. Yet wokeism is a bit different since it now pervades our societies as a pandemic of its own. Take Delta Airline CEO Ed Bastian.

Maher Torches ‘Woke’ Culture: ‘This Is Called A Purge. It’s A Mentality That Belongs In Stalin’s Russia.’
HBO host Bill Maher slammed “woke” culture and people who were complaining about cultural appropriation at the Olympics, saying that the toxic ideology was something that belonged in Stalin’s Russia. Top lines from Maher’s segment on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” included: “The director of the opening ceremony was fired hours before the event because they found out there was a Holocaust joke at a comedy routine he did decades ago. … Why do we allow the people who just want to b***h to always win? Days before that firing, the opening ceremonies musical director, musical director, was also forced out because someone dug up an interview with him from 1994 where he admitted to bullying classmates as a child. As a child. Remember when your teacher used to try and scare you by saying this is going to go on your permanent record? Yeah, no longer an empty threat now.” “And the creative director of the entire shebang of the whole Olympics got s**t canned because . . . […] How bad does this atmosphere we’re living in have to get before the people who say cancel culture is overblown admit that it is in fact an insanity that is swallowing up the world? #WokeOlympics

Alexander: CALVID, not COVID, is Real Threat to Arizona From California
The real threat to states like Arizona is not COVID, it’s CALVID, Arizona turning into California. People fleeing the deteriorating state are flocking to Arizona and bringing their failed political views with them. Former Californians now make up about 10% of the population in Arizona. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey titled an op-ed for The Orange County Register in March warning those considering moving to Arizona, “Leaving California? Don’t Forget Why.” He joked about thanking the California governor during a speech for growing Arizona’s economy. […] The latest quarterly registration numbers released from the Arizona Secretary of State show that 3,093 registered as Republicans and only 539 registered as Democrats, leaving Republicans with a significant 125,322 advantage statewide, and almost 100,000 more voters in Maricopa County. Additionally, 40% of those considering leaving California are Republicans, whereas only 14% are Democrats. Let’s just hope the voter fraud in Arizona stops.
