Bruce Abramson contributor to American Greatness: The denial of the faith at the heart of wokeism provides yet another benefit. Though the Constitution prohibits the establishment of a religion, it is silent on the establishment of an ideology. Wokeism is establishing itself in ways that Christianity would never be allowed to do. It’s beyond time to awaken to the woke. Wokeism is a new world religion engaged in a stealth conquest of America, the West, and the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Christopher Roach contributor to American Greatness: The forces of the aggressive, secular Left are not going to let any of us retreat into our own enclaves. They will hunt down every last private club, pizza shop, and bakery out of mere spite. They will steal your kids and destroy your life. For anyone opposed to society’s fast-changing rules, you can expect the Branch Davidian treatment.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) who is on Pelosi’s 1/6 commission, when asked by Jonathan Karl if he would support a subpoena to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, replied: “I would support subpoenas to anybody that can shed light on that. If that’s the leader, that’s the leader. If it’s anybody that talked to the president that can provide us that information — I want to know what the president was doing every moment of that day.”

Roger Kimball contributor to American Greatness: I think Glenn Reynolds is correct that opposing the tyrannous spirit that stands behind the lockdowns, the mask mandates, and the smug, hectoring, politically correct demands for proof of vaccination would be a winning strategy for GOP politicians. Will they adopt it? Most will do so timorously, if at all. That’s my prediction.

United Teachers Los Angeles Union President Cecily Myart-Cruz throws support behind masking and weekly testing of vaccinated and unvaccinated district employees and students: “Vaccines are like seatbelts: necessary but not invincible. Just like we need seatbelts, airbags, and speed limits, we need masks, ventilation, and testing to keep school communities safe.”


Sundance: President Trump’s Grassroots Army Raises Historic $102 Million War Chest Ahead of 2022 Mid-Term Elections
When Donald J Trump entered politics in 2015, the RNC club -then headed by Reince Priebus- was dismissive. The RNC club was/is an echo-chamber of big donor and corporate influence. However, the blue-collar message carried by Donald Trump resonated with middle-America. The forgotten men, women and families responded in more ways than the immediate (and never diminishing) first place in the polls, they opened their checkbooks. […] The RNC had never seen the number of donations, small donations, for a single presidential candidate, ever. The most shocking statistic was not the amount of money raised by Trump, but the sheer number of donors supporting him. Trump’s MAGA donor base file became the most valuable commodity the RNC club had ever seen. The vast majority of these small donors had never appeared on any donor filings before. These were the hidden voters, the monster voters, the people who never previously engaged in politics or financially supported a political candidate before. THESE were the MAGA voters. […] Most of the MAGA donors did not convert to being RNC club donors. Instead, they remain loyal to the one person who has not stabbed them in the back, lied to them and played political games. The majority of the MAGA donors still contribute to Donald J Trump, because he alone has earned that trust while visibly walking through the fire of political opposition from both wings of the UniParty in DC. […] The primary mechanism for supporting President Trump and the MAGA agenda remains [DonaldJTrump.Com]. That is where the primary mechanism Save America JFC (joint fundraising committee) exists. According to Politico –SEE HERE– this mechanism raised $62 Million in the first half of this year, and now holds over $90 million on hand. This money is also out of the reach of the RNC Club… [you can imagine their teeth gnashing]. As a result, President Trump has two subsidiaries under SAVE AMERICA JFC. (#1) Save America Leadership PAC (Donald Trump), and (#2) Make America Great Again PAC (Corey Lewandowski). In total the organization has raised over $82 million in the first half of the year and holds $102 million in the bank.

Mittelstadt: NIH chief cheers on vaccine mandates for private sector, federal employees amid spreading protests
Businesses requiring customers to get the COVID-19 vaccine is “a good thing” and would help bring an end to the pandemic, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins said Sunday. Collins was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if it would be good for businesses to require customers to be vaccinated against COVID-19. “As a public health person who wants to see this pandemic end, yes,” Collins replied. “I think anything we can do to encourage reluctant folks to get vaccinated because they’ll want to be part of these public events, that’s a good thing.” [NOTE: Biden admin. message again delivered to businesses that they require vaccinations.]

Hoft: BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Uncovered Email Shows Milwaukee Elections Executive Woodall-Vogg Laughing About the Election Steal on Election Night
In the early hours of November 4th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a batch of 143,379 ballots, all for Joe Biden were dropped. We’ve unearthed an email that shows the culprits behind the ‘drop’ were laughing about it. We all now know about the many states that dropped huge numbers of ballots stealing the race for Joe Biden. On the morning of November 4th, America woke up to see the results of the massive fraud in multiple swing states. […] Today we uncovered an email to Claire Woodall-Vogg, the executive director for elections in Milwaukee. In the email the sender, Ryan Chew, from the Election Group shared:
Damn, Claire, you have a flair for drama, delivering just the margin needed at 3:00 am. I bet you had those votes counted at midnight, and just wanted to keep the world waiting.” […] We reported that Claire Woodall-Vogg was working alone late at night with the voting machines in Milwaukee. Her actions then were suspect, now they are borderline criminal.

NEW VIDEO Reveals Jan. 6 Protesters Getting Unruly ONLY AFTER Capitol Police Fired Flash-bang Grenades and Teargassed Crowd (VIDEO)
A new video posted at Disclose TV reveals the Jan. 6 Trump supporters being fired on by Capitol Hill police before the violence started. The police are then seen drenching Trump supporters with pepper-spray. This was all before the Trump supporters started attacking the police. This was also at the time that a third Trump supporter was killed. It is likely the man died after the vicious assault by the police on January 6. […] It was all a setup.

Joondeph M.D.: Do the COVID Vaccines Work or Not?
Do the vaccines work or not? Depending on the day and pronouncement, it is hard to know. First, the COVID “vaccines” are not true vaccines based on the definitions of vaccine. Rather than the “vaccine” containing attenuated virus, it is a strand of messenger RNA, based on genetic code provided by China and serving as the basis for these novel “vaccines” which cause the body to create spike protein which in turn supposedly generates an immune response in the vaccinated to supposedly provide short or long term immunity. […] 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 3D print 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? […] If the vaccines work, why do we see headlines like this? “Tennessee experiences 27 deaths in more than 1,000 breakthrough cases among vaccinated individuals.” Or from a solid non-MAGA blue state, “49 people who were fully vaccinated have died of COVID in NJ.” From the Washington Post, “Three fourths of those infected in Mass. outbreak were vaccinated.” Do the vaccines work or not? Or were the vaccine expectations overly optimistic? […] Was it ever about the virus or furthering a political agenda?

O’Neil: Massive spike in reported increase of COVID-19 deaths was skewed by old data
A massive 300 percent hike in nationwide COVID-19 deaths recorded Friday by Johns Hopkins University was skewed by states dumping data – that in one case dated back as far as last spring, according to a report. […] The true day-to-day increase of nationwide COVID-19 deaths was actually only 2.5 percent, according to the outlet.

Bedard: Cheney in trouble: 77% GOP would not reelect, 53% call her ‘liberal’
Embattled Rep. Liz Cheney’s position on charges President Trump played a role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot has not turned around her negative ratings back home in Wyoming, and now she’s on the verge of losing her reelection. In polling data provided to Secrets, just 23% of regular primary Republicans plan to vote for her, 77% said they won’t. And as bad, her image as a conservative like her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, has also been hurt. In the McLaughlin & Associates survey, 53% described her as liberal, and only 26% labeled her conservative.

Nieshalla: Sen. Ernst: ‘No’ Pathway to Citizenship For Immigrants Who ‘Knowingly Broke Our Laws’
At the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, CNS News asked the senator, “Should illegal aliens be given a pathway to citizenship?” Senator Ernst said, “No, I disagree with those that have knowingly broken our laws. I do have a little different feeling for babies that are brought here — they don’t have a choice in the matter. So, I think it’s something that we do need to debate, but for those that knowingly broke our laws, no.”

Zuckerbucks Aren’t Just Tampering With Elections, They’re Tampering With Your Kids’ Education
Although Facebook’s efforts to interfere with open and honest elections have now been widely covered, many Americans don’t fully grasp that CZI has also devoted significant funding toward tampering with public education. CZI is a major funder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), a Chicago-based education organization. It coined the “social and emotional learning” concept more than 20 years ago and is now the nation’s largest source of SEL programming, with programs operating in 20 states. It claims to reach as many as 1.7 million students with its left-wing ideology.
CASEL was founded by Daniel Goleman, author of “Emotional Intelligence,” and philanthropist Eileen Rockefeller Growald. The program’s expressed goal was to help “children acquire the skills to recognize and manage emotions, develop caring and concern for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations effectively.” However, CASEL isn’t just offering social-emotional learning, they’re now pushing a variant known as “transformative SEL” which is heavily steeped in concepts that encourage students to obsess about their race and supposed gender identities.
Schools using prying surveys to promote concepts like these have been accused of violating the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which requires parental access to students’ survey answers.

Solomon: Florida, Texas lead states’ rights resistance against Big Tech and Big Government
From open borders and COVID-19 to critical race theory and censorship, Florida and Texas have formed a vanguard against the leftward tilting of America by the Biden administration, the Democratic Congress and Big Tech. Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas have created a model for other GOP executives to use the states’ rights enshrined in the Constitution’s 10th Amendment to confront creeping government and monopolization, rallying conservatives who at times are frustrated that Republicans in Washington have failed to muster much resistance.
They’ve already rolled up a few wins, and unmistakably caught the attention of the Biden Justice Department, which on Friday sued Abbott for issuing an executive order prohibiting the transportation of illegal migrants through his state if they may be infected with COVID-19. Texas seemed to relish a fresh chance to contest DOJ in federal court — where it has won other recent victories — and open another legal front for states’ rights. […] Led by DeSantis, Florida has picked several of its own battles with Big Government and Big Tech.

Kredo: Wuhan Scientists Genetically Manipulated Coronavirus, Congressional Report Says
Chinese scientists manipulated lethal viruses under unsafe conditions at the Wuhan Institute of Virology prior to the coronavirus outbreak, fueling suspicions the pandemic was caused by a lab leak, according to a new congressional report. The Wuhan lab was engaged in “dangerous genetic modification research on coronaviruses at unsafe biosafety levels,” according to the report, authored by the minority staff on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The report includes revelations about unsafe working conditions at the lab, as well as new information indicating the Chinese government sought to mislead the world about the experiments taking place there. Congressional investigators say researchers at the lab “had the ability to genetically modify coronaviruses as early as 2016 without leaving any trace of that modification.” Mounting evidence suggests the coronavirus that is still crippling the world “was accidentally released from a Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory sometime prior to September 12, 2019,”

Shurk: Chinese ‘Justice’ Comes to America
For the last several months, secretary of state Antony Blinken and U.S. diplomats have been telling wobbly global allies that the struggle for control over the emerging new world order will pit “liberal democracies” against “authoritarian regimes.” In order to protect free speech, freedom of religion, due process, rule of law, and democratic government, the story goes, Europe must join with America in keeping the power of China and Russia in check. Take a gander at these two recent headlines, and tell me how well the “liberal” United States is distinguishing itself from “authoritarian” China:
Hong Kong Protester Found Guilty Of Terrorism In Trial Without Jury vs. The Jan. 6 Show Trials Threaten All of Us In the first news story, the Daily Caller’s Thomas Catenacci details the travails of Tong Ying-kit, a Hong Kong protester who was recently convicted of “inciting secession” and “acts of terrorism” for driving around on his motorcycle with a sign saying, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times” during last year’s protests against Beijing’s crackdown on what remained of the city’s U.K.-inherited freedoms. […] Take a look at the second article about the January 6 show trials in America? Why not?

PRAGER: The Media Produces Derangement: Proof From New York Times Readers
This past weekend, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd added another column to the myriad irrational and hysterical pieces about the “existential threat” climate change allegedly poses to human life. As I do after almost every piece I read on the internet, I read comments submitted by readers.
One provided me with an epiphany. It was a comment submitted by New York Times reader “Sophia” of Bangor, Maine: “I have one child, a daughter, who told me age 8 that she would never have a child because of global warming. She’s now 34 and has never changed her mind. So I will not experience a grandchild. For her wisdom, I am grateful. I would be heartsick if I did have a grandchild who would have to experience the onslaught of changing climate.” It is hard to imagine greater proof than that comment of the power of mass media and of the Left. That a normal woman would celebrate her daughter’s choice not to be a mother and not to make her a grandmother can only be described as deranged. […] Does this deranged woman know how few people are dying due to weather-related incidents in the era of global warming?

(A look into government run healthcare) Newman: NHS drew up secret plan to assess patients on their ‘probability of survival’ in the event of a pandemic – excluding elderly people over 70 from care if medical resources became stretched
Confidential government documents written following a pandemic training exercise in 2016 detailed plans to stop hospitals being overwhelmed by sacrificing vulnerable members of the population. Under the plans, the Health Secretary could allow doctors to prioritise some patients over others who were placed on an ‘end of life pathway’ in the event of a ‘severe’ flu pandemic. […] The documents seen by The Telegraph show that the Government planned to triage patients based on their ‘probability of survival’ rather than their ‘clinical need’ if resources were stretched. […] Earlier this year, it was revealed that care homes were asked by the NHS to place ‘do not resuscitate’ orders on all residents during the worst of the pandemic in breach of guidelines.
