NOTABLE QUOTES

Steve Rossiter contributor to Canada Free Press: Without God and the sideboards of religion, specifically Christianity’s morals and values, the government was destined to ultimately fail and society would return to tyranny 

Julie Kelly contributor to American Greatness: Our once-thriving and free country is slowly dying at the hands of frauds, crooks, and cowards—and they’re not even trying to hide it from us. They are flaunting it. After two decades of gradually amassing power and control under the ruse of national security, the ruling class is exercising that power in a ruthless way.

Christopher Roach contributor to American Greatness: Reality is plainer by the day. We are ruled by a corrupt, stupid, and hostile elite that hates us. In fact, they are willing to endanger our national security and impoverish us to prolong their temporary grip on power.

Victoria Marshall contributor to The Federalist: As The New York Times reported, Democrats’ list of policy proposals for 2023 includes expanding automatic voter registration systems, preregistering teenagers to vote, granting the franchise to felons, and criminalizing what the left thinks is election “misinformation.” Of course, all these policy prescriptions have little to do with “voting rights,” but Democrats package them as such, and slander their opponents as — you guessed it — racists.  Make no mistake about what these proposals are meant to accomplish.

DNYUZ report: The most popular Democratic plan on voting access is to join the 20 states that have already enacted or approved automatic voter registration, a system that adds anyone whose information is on file with a government agency — such as a department of motor vehicles or a social services bureau — to the voter rolls unless they opt out. Oregon, which in 2016 became the first state to adopt the practice, had the highest percentage of voter turnout in the country last month, a distinction held in recent elections by Minnesota.

Jay Valentine contributor to American Thinker: This week, leftists and RINOs admitted, under oath, that they changed the print settings, on election morning, so Republican votes would not be tabulated, on the one day most Republicans vote — and the Maricopa County judge said “…it wasn’t intentional.” A Republican governor candidate who easily won by multiple points was denied her rightful election.  Several million Arizona voters were disenfranchised. Not a word from Republican leaders! Wake up, America. Leftists and RINOs have spent the last 40 years transforming election machinery to end your right to vote — and they are about to finish the job.

M.B. Mathews contributor to American Thinker: Our culture today reflects the disfiguring birthmark of fallen man. Evil is called good, men are called women, homosexuality is called a lifestyle, pedophilia is called an “attraction,” fraud is called justice, racism is called anti-racism, dementia is called wisdom, and the theft of taxpayer wages on a grand scale is called “taxes.” Open borders are called closed. Poisons are called vaccines, hatred is called tolerance, and violence is called social justice. Profanity is called freedom, egocentrism is called being an “influencer.”  Our world, sadly, is now living out the biblical warnings.

Olivia Murray contributor to American Thinker: EPA “regulations” decreeing a phase out of diesel trucks makes 11,400,000 vehicles (private property) obsolete. That’s communism, and it comes in the form of Green altruism.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: Merrick Garland will continue to order the FBI to hound perceived enemies through surveillance and performance art arrests. And the people will only grow more convinced the bureau has become Stasi-like and cannot be reformed but must be broken up—even as in extremis a defiant and unapologetic FBI will, as its latest communique shows, attack its critics.  We are left with the dilemma of Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who watches the watchers? 

Sundance  contributor to The Last Refuge: The very first step that’s desperately necessary for our survival, is that we become disillusioned–and quickly.  We must stop pretending. In the interim, if you are one of the 1 in 4 independent-minded Americans, you need to think about your home, the physical surroundings of yourself and your community, as the Alamo. Fortify your defenses literally in your family. Then, only if your home is secure, move forward using tactical civics to influence the local election level, city council, school boards, sheriff, judges etc.  Each of these local level engagements should be looked upon as setting perimeter defenses against federal and state intrusion.

MC Staples contributor to Gatestone Institute: Questions remain about whether the military will continue punishing the “unvaccinated” from the shadows by keeping them marked as non-deployable, restricted from traveling to training events, and blocked from serving in leadership roles. These are but a small sampling of oppressive actions against exercising the sacred right of conscience. Such tactics marginalize troops who dared question the wisdom of putting an experimental and unproven drug into their bloodstreams at the order of groupthink-driven superiors. If one is not free to decide what he or she can put into his or her own body, then true freedom is relegated to a distant concept rather than a reality of American society.

Al Bienenfeld contributor to American Thinker: Since 2020, Big Government has used Big Pharma and Big Tech to accomplish political goals at the expense of hundreds of thousands of lives. Hospitals such as Duke University respond as they do because of the coercive use of government resources, financial, and otherwise. The life of innocent 14-year-old Yulia Hicks and others like her mean nothing to these people, just a name on a form that could bring them more COVID-19 payments. 

Christopher Roach contributor to American Greatness: Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s visit to the U.S. Congress was a disgrace. Congressional fawning and praise after his broken-English demands for more money symbolized an upside-down world, one where the client state orders around the supplicant patron. The corrupt and collapsing country of Ukraine would not last a week without American largesse and has tried to drag NATO into a larger war with false flags. Yet Zelenskyy spoke grandiloquently of “partnership” and “investments.”

The Center Square Staff reports Biden’s most recent executive order: The executive order gives “General Schedule” employees a 4.6% pay increase, 4.1% as a raise and 0.5% as a cost-of-living adjustment. General Schedule employees include a wide range of civilian federal workers. “The other schedules contained herein are effective on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2023,” the order said.

U.S. SUPREME COURT

(12/27/22  H/T GC) ) Phillips: U.S. Supreme Court rules that Trump-era Title 42 border restrictions to remain in place, forcing migrants seeking asylum to be turned away

The Supreme Court ruled by a 5-4 vote to keep Title 42 in place just hours ahead of its planned midnight Wednesday end. The Covid-era public health policy that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants will now remain in place until legal battles involving its end play out in court. Agents will now be able to use the policy to expel border crossers for at least the next several months, leaving an onslaught of migrants who were expected to rush the U.S.-Mexico border after Title 42 was lifted in limbo. […]  Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the more liberal justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson to vote against keeping it in place. The high court agreed to hear oral arguments in February on whether 19 GOP-led states should be allowed to intervene in defense of the policy in lower courts. A final decision is due by June.

Binder: DHS Chief Mayorkas Calls for Amnesty, More Immigration as Title 42 Remains

On Tuesday, as Breitbart News reported, SCOTUS announced that Title 42 — the public health authority first imposed in 2020 — would remain in place to help quickly deport illegal aliens arriving at the border until at least the summer of 2023. Mayorkas, in an official statement by DHS, urged Congress to pass Biden’s amnesty and mass migration plan while Title 42 remains in place. DHS officials wrote in a statement: We will continue to manage the border, but we do so within the constraints of a decades-old immigration system that everyone agrees is broken. We need Congress to pass the comprehensive immigration reform legislation President Biden proposed the day he took office.

Munro: Poll: Eight of Ten Americans Want to Keep Title 42

Republican, independent, and Democrat voters strongly support the preservation of the Title 42 border barrier, according to a December poll by Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll. The poll asked 1,851 registered voters about the barrier, which was established by President Donald Trump and is being removed by President Joe Biden: . . .[…]  Seventy-six percent of swing-voting independents want the barrier to be preserved, along with 80 percent of Republicans and 79 percent of Democrats. Sixty-seven percent of Hispanics and 77 percent of blacks want the barrier preserved.. . . Read more:https://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2022/12/27/poll-eight-ten-americans-want-keep-title-42/

GLOBALISM (GREAT RESET/NEW WOLD ORDER) & TRANSHUMANISM (HUMANS 2.0) ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED

(A strategic move toward achieving the Great Reset) Newman: Energy Crisis Being Engineered for Evil Purposes

The Deep State is engineering a major energy crisis that may make life very difficult this winter across large parts of the Northern hemisphere, even in the United States, warns The New American magazine’s Alex Newman in this episode of Behind The Deep State. The emerging crisis was brought about through relentless Deep State sabotage of Western energy systems, including energy exploration and power plants, under the guise of “fighting climate change,” though even nuclear and hydropower are under attack by Deep State forces and their useful idiots. All over Europe, in large parts of America, and even in Japan, establishment media organs are warning that blackouts, brownouts and other problems are coming soon. The European Union is already working toward continent-wide, Soviet-style energy rationing. But the ultimate goal, as the Council on Foreign Relations put it in Foreign Affairs, is a new energy order in which governments will take total control of energy, thereby placing populations at the mercy of technocratic government while enforcing scarcity and outsourcing Western industry and manufacturing to Communist China.

Bruce: Evidence of the Conspiracy To Commit Mass Murder by the DOD, HHS – Sasha Latypova

In this presentation, Sasha Latypova covers the pseudo-legal structure, the organizational structure and the money flow of the COVID criminal enterprise. […] The topic of my presentation today is “Intent to Harm” and I’m going to discuss evidence of conspiracy – which is not a theory – of US Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, other government agencies and other governments all over the world, in collusion with pharmaceutical companies; conspiracy to commit mass murder through bioterrorism and informational warfare operations, worldwide. So, let’s review the totality of all the evidence, to date. I’m not going to cover all of these topics, I’m going to focus more on the organization and pseudo legal structure of this crime: . . .[Note: Population control is a stated goal of the globalist Great Reset movement.]

AN AMERICA IN DECLINE

Rossiter: No God, no United States of America

Approximately 30% of the citizens of the United States attend church on a regular basis.  Unfortunately, probably half of the churches have replaced the teachings of Jesus and the Bible with popular woke/social justice principles contrary to God’s Word.  How well is that working out?  Declining church attendance, increased acceptance of sexual perversions, increasing acceptance of the murder of the unborn, property crime, acceptance of growing murder rates, belief that law enforcement is wrong, acceptance of blatant lying by government officials and everyone else, and failure to counter a massive invasion though the U.S. border suggests that things aren’t working too well in America or Canada. “A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right and evil doesn’t become good just because it’s accepted by a majority” Booker T. Washington  The following is guidance from America’s Founding Fathers that we have managed to forget as a liberty-loving free society. “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” ~ John Adams “It is impossible to govern the world without God. It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits and humbly implore his protection and favor.” ~ George Washington “Do not let anyone claim tribute of American patriotism if they even attempt to remove religion from politics.” ~ George Washington  Read more: https://canadafreepress.com/article/no-god-no-united-states-of-america

Dr. Paugh: The Worst Are Leading Western Society on the Wrong Path

If you are wondering what happened to the American people and the West in general, on the road to committing societal suicide in short order, F. A. Hayek has a plausible answer in his book, The Road to Serfdom. Hayek, an economist and philosopher, a pioneer in monetary theory and proponent of libertarianism, lists three reasons why the worst elements of society have formed such a strong group of sycophants with homogeneous views on the direction that the western, free market societies must take to become the communist utopia-that-never-was. […]  The common enemy today labeled by bureaucrats and career politicians as dangerous are the ordinary Americans who love their country, their families, their Christian faith, and who reject the woke-ism of current young generations indoctrinated into believing that everything good about America, its economy, its history, its culture, its values, are evil. These indoctrinated generations, whether in America or other western nations, believe that anything goes, socialism is great, being responsible humans and citizens is passe, free stuff is the way of life, jobs are for dummies, sex and gender are fluid, and biology is a construct to keep them oppressed.

JANUARY 6

Kelly: What Did Nancy Pelosi Know and When Did She Know It?

he January 6 select committee finally released its long-delayed report late on December 23 after most Americans had happily turned away from politics to enjoy the Christmas weekend with family and friends. The Friday night news dump, a common tactic when government officials want to bury something controversial, was not exactly a vote of confidence in the panel’s ultimate work product. As expected, the bulk of the 845-page document spun a well-worn tale that portrayed Donald Trump as the sole villain in a so-called “insurrection” the committee wants us to believe was engineered to keep him in the White House. Page after page included dramatic interpretations of snippets from witness testimony intended to bolster the committee’s preconceived conclusions.  […] But a competing report also released last week by a handful of Republican House members did not let Pelosi off the hook; to the contrary, “Security Failures at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021” presented new disclosures about how Pelosi’s staff spent weeks ostensibly preparing for the electoral certification vote that afternoon. “[Then] House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving—who served on the Capitol Police Board by virtue of his position—succumbed to political pressures from the Office of Speaker Pelosi and House Democrat leadership leading up to January 6, 2021,” the report  . . .     […] The answer is obvious. The January 6 select committee never intended to act as a truth-seeking mission but rather perform a cover-up for what actually happened, which is becoming more obvious every day. House Republicans produced a more serious report that requires rigorous follow-up next year. Read more: https://amgreatness.com/2022/12/26/what-did-nancy-pelosi-know-and-when-did-she-know-it/

THE CORRUPT U.S. INTELLIGENCE/ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Wauck: War Update: Mostly Domestic Front

The global war the US is waging has a very important domestic front—it’s an intel front and in some respects this is a supremely important front because it tamps down domestic (mostly conservative) opposition to the global part of the war. On the other hand, of course, the domestic front, which targets Americans, is part of the political drive to complete the transformation of America from constitutional republic to fascistic Woke national security state. That drive has run into some speed bumps that are worth noting—how it works out in the long run will be another story. Newsbusters has a good analysis of a WaPo article that appears to have been planted by the FBI. The WaPo title tells the story—the FBI, seeing the coming Congressional investigations and already reeling from Russia Hoax blowback and the new Twitter Files and Hunter cover-up revelations, is now trying to walk back its Mar-a-Lago raid on Trump. Or, at least shift most of the blame to DoJ: . .  Read more:https://meaninginhistory.substack.com/p/war-update-mostly-domestic-front?utm_source=profile&utm_medium=reader2 

Rockwell, Jr.: Who Killed President Kennedy?

It means that within the US government, there are forces wholly beyond democratic control. These forces are more powerful than the elected officials that supposedly oversee them. These forces can affect election outcomes. They can even hide their complicity in the murder of an American president. In other words, they can do pretty much anything they want. They constitute a government within a government mocking, by their very existence, the idea of democracy. As cynical as we have become after 30 years of watching government officials ignore the voters who employ them, we were shocked to learn this. It’s not acceptable.” See this. After this broadcast, Robert Kennedy, Jr, JFK’s nephew, tweeted: “The most courageous newscast in 60 years. The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’état from which our democracy has never recovered.” If the CIA was involved, the obvious next question is why? Why did they want JFK eliminated? The best answer has been provided by Professor Jim Douglass in his book JFK and the Unspeakable. In brief, JFK  . . .

VDH: What Will the FBI Not Do?

The FBI on Wednesday finally broke its silence and responded to the revelations on Twitter of close ties between the bureau and the social media giant—ties that included efforts to suppress information and censor political speech.  “The correspondence between the FBI and Twitter show nothing more than examples of our traditional, longstanding and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements, which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries,” the bureau said in a statement. “As evidenced in the correspondence, the FBI provides critical information to the private sector in an effort to allow them to protect themselves and their customers. The men and women of the FBI work every day to protect the American public. It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency.”

Almost all of the FBI communique is untrue, except the phrase about the bureau’s “engagements which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries.”  Read more: https://amgreatness.com/2022/12/26/what-will-the-fbi-not-do/

THE OMNIBUS BILL IS THE OLD NEW GREEN DEAL

Sundance: House Passes $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill, Nine House Republicans Supported

First, some context: A trillion dollars is one-thousand billions.  A trillion seconds is 31,709 years. The last federal budget that went through regular order was signed into law in September of 2007. Today is December 23rd. Obamacare was passed in the Senate December 23, 2009. Today, the Democrat controlled House of Representatives has just passed the Senate constructed $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill.  The massive spending bill now blocks the incoming Republican congress from impeding the Biden agenda and heads directly to the installed occupant of the White House for signature. Most of the House republicans who voted to approve the spending bill are retiring, they include: Liz Cheney (WY), Rodney Davis (IL),  Brian Fitzpatrick (AL), Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA), Chris Jacobs (NY), John Katko (NY), Adam Kinzinger (IL), Fred Upton (MI), and Steve Womack (AR).

Waldo, III: Omnibus Fraud

The nefarious $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill was passed by progressives in both parties.

This bill funds bigger government for fiscal year 2023 through September.  The bad news is that progressives seized on an initiative to eviscerate the incoming Republican House majority for half of their term.  The good news is this bill should not stand because it is unconstitutional.  The best news will be when something is done about that. […] The 117th United States Congress has exceeded their authority past their term limit by usurping the authority of the 118th Congress. Once the 117th Congress has been succeeded in the New Year, they no longer meet, they no longer legislate, they are history.  The same is true of their bills becoming laws.  Constitutionally, this means appropriations bills can’t extend past their time in office.  Otherwise, they are legislating extra officium. It does not matter how execrable the practices of the Congress have become.  What matters is what the Constitution says.  Precedents of bad behavior don’t amount to license.  Congress has a long history of engaging in or encouraging unconstitutional actions.   Read more: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/12/omnibus_fraud.html

Andrzejewski; Congressional Combine Fleeced America Using $16B In Earmarks To Pass $1.7T Omnibus Bill

Overall, Democrats earmarked $9.1 billion, Republicans earmarked $6.4 billion, and bipartisan groups of legislators earmarked an additional $476 million. Dubbed the ‘currency of corruption in Congress,’ earmarks allow federal legislators to set aside specific sums of money for local projects in their states or districts. The practice was banned for a decade due to abuse. However, last year and again this year, House Republicans held secret caucus meetings and voted to join Democrats in reinstituting the practice. If a local project can’t get state or local funding, then why are federal taxpayers picking up the tab? That means federal tax dollars from one state head out the door to fund pork in another. Former U.S. Senator Dr. Tom Coburn called earmarks “the gateway drug to runaway spending bills.” This omnibus legislation was a great example of the bipartisan combine – the fleecing of America.

OUR $600 TRANSACTIONS ARE CLOSELY MONITORED

Bleau: Rand Paul’s Annual ‘Festivus’ Report: $482,276,543,907 in Government Waste

Paul’s 2022 Festivus report highlights $482,276,543,907 in government waste and includes $2.3 million used by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for an experiment involving injecting puppies with cocaine, $202,000 used by the Department of Defense (DOD) on Starbucks espresso machines, and $3 million for the construction of a Gandhi museum. […]  According to Paul, the DOD wasted millions this year, including $28 million on “camouflage” uniforms that did not work. […]  The DOD also spent $192,952 on what the report describes as “top-of-the-line” Starbucks espresso machines: . . .[…]  The NIH also wasted a significant amount of money. That includes $2.1 million on encouraging Ethiopians to wear shoes, $2.3 million injecting beagle puppies with cocaine, $1.1 million on “training mice to binge drink alcohol,” over $519,000 using mice to study racial aggression, and $187,500 on “verifying that kids love their pets.”

According to the report, the pet grant went to Kent State University, which used the funds to apparently “verify that the relationship between pets and children is beneficial to mental health.” Other highlights directly from the report include: . . .

THE FIGHT FOR U.S. HOUSE SPEAKERSHIP

Brooks: Time is running short for McCarthy to lock up Speakership

Members of Congress departed Washington on Friday with the group of House Republicans voicing opposition to McCarthy for Speaker showing no signs of wavering, setting up a dramatic Jan. 3 Speaker’s vote — or series of votes — on the first day of the 118th Congress. McCarthy brushed off a question on Friday asking how he plans to lock up support over the holidays, saying he plans to “go home; have a really nice Christmas.” […]  No Speaker vote has gone to a second ballot in a century.

Boose: Bipartisan Washington Gives America the Middle Finger—Again

The way our politicians speak today, you would think Ukraine, not Britain, is where we derived our glorious language and our noble political principles. Is America a sovereign country? You would never know it from how politicians in Washington behave. With an invasion reaching a tipping point at our southern border, members of both parties spent the week before Christmas scrambling to pass “immigration reform” that would reward illegal immigrants with citizenship. Mercifully, their efforts failed.  But they didn’t stop there. Then they congratulated themselves for passing an “omnibus” bill that is twice the length of War and Peace, and invited a comedian in a G.I. Joe costume to shake down taxpayers to support “democracy” in Ukraine. Zelenskyy is Winston Churchill, they said, over and over and over again. They can’t help adding insult to injury. What they mean, of course, is that nobody is allowed to question what billions of U.S. tax dollars are doing in Ukraine. You wouldn’t say no to Winston Churchill, would you? Read more: https://amgreatness.com/2022/12/24/bipartisan-washington-gives-america-the-middle-finger-again/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=ae&seyid=39277

Smith: What are Senate Conservatives Going to Do about McConnell?

The script is sickeningly familiar by now, isn’t it?  Establishment Republicans — led throughout the ’22 elections and in their aftermath by the notorious Kentucky senator-for-life Mitch McConnell — betrayed their party’s base, which is staunchly conservative, increasingly in an America First sorta way.

Yes, lest one is confused because of all the serial betrayals, we’re referring to the gross obscenity called the “$1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill.”  For true-blue conservatives, the brazen middle-finger thrust rudely into their faces by McConnell and seventeen other Senate go-alongs should be an act of war.  Political war, that is. The first major offensive in this war needs to be led by Senate conservatives.  The mission is audacious, as well it should be given the stakes: bringing down D.C.-lovin’ Mitch McConnell as Republican Senate leader.  Ace out dull John Thune as heir-apparent.  Install Rick Scott as the new leader.  The grassroots needs to undergird the fight and sustain it.  Read more:https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/12/what_are_senate_conservatives_going_to_do_about_mcconnell.html

Clemons : Mike Lee, Ron Johnson, Slam McConnell for Rushing $1.7T Omnibus Vote

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, are still seething over the Senate passing last week’s $1.7 trillion omnibus bill, and apparently not waiting until 2023 to negotiate terms for such a massive spending initiative. And from the two senators’ perspective, the brunt of blame lies squarely on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “The arrogance of our [Senate GOP] leadership who said, ‘We know better than House members. We’re going to pass this. We’ll get religion next year when it comes to fiscal sanity,'” Johnson told John Catsimatidis in a Sunday interview that aired on national radio.

Nava & Campanile: Liar Rep.-elect George Santos admits fabricating key details of his bio

Long Island Rep.-elect George Santos came clean to The Post on Monday, admitting that he lied on the campaign trail about his education and work experience — but insisting that the controversy won’t deter him from serving out his two-year term in Congress. “I am not a criminal,” Santos said at one point during his exclusive interview. “This [controversy] will not deter me from having good legislative success. I will be effective. I will be good.” […]  “My sins here are embellishing my resume. I’m sorry,” Santos said Monday.

Meads: You Think George Santos Is A Liar? Wait Till You See Who’s In The White House

If you tuned into the news this week, you would think that Congressman-elect George Santos (R-NY) was the only liar to ever be elected to office. On Monday, he admitted that he “embellished” his education, his career, and even matters relating to his love life prior to winning this year’s Congressional election.

In other words, Santos is a regular Joe Biden. Santos claimed that he graduated college. That never actually happened. During his first presidential run, Biden said he graduated in the top half of his law school. That wasn’t true — and not even impressive anyway. The 34-year-old Republican has said he worked for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup. Now Santos is saying that he was never employed by the two financial firms “directly.” The 80-year-old Democrat has said he was a . . .

Scarry: 5 Real Things More Appalling Than George Santos’ Fake Resume

It doesn’t matter if George Santos is the lowliest of low-lifes. . .  A few nerds (sometimes referred to as “journalists”) were on standby over the past few days, waiting for New York Republican Representative-elect George Santos to explain why there was no evidence of the sterling educational background and work history that he professed to have during his 2022 campaign for Congress. The predictable and underwhelming answer is that he lied about it and no, he doesn’t plan to resign. Where is there a person in America who still cares about the personal biographies of the people they elect? None of it — literally none of it — matters. Being a U.S. veteran doesn’t necessarily indicate that a person is smart or good. If it did, Democrat Army vet Rep. Bobby Rush would be a role model for children rather than a race hustler who funneled tens of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to his criminal son. (It was for “field” work.) In any event, what Santos lied about — that he went to an exclusive college and worked in Wall Street financing — is nothing compared to some of the true things that have happened in Congress lately. Here are five of them: 1. The Speaker of the House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, told everyone to indefinitely lock themselves in their homes with a mask strapped to their faces.

TWITTER CRIME FILES

Givas: Ten major revelations exposing extent of government pressure on Big Tech to censor Americans

Two hundred and thirty-one years ago this month, America’s founders enshrined free speech as the first protection in the ratified Bill of Rights with a declaration that the government could not infringe expression. A series of blockbuster revelations at the end of 2022 show just how imperiled those protections have become in the era of Big Tech. From Elon Musk’s “Twitter files” to an FBI agent’s candid testimony, Americans have gotten a glimpse into a once-hidden enterprise where federal agencies pressured social media platforms – directly and through proxies – to censor content under their terms of service. The goal, it appears, was to preserve the ruling elite’s favored narratives on everything from the pandemic to election integrity. The exposés have undercut claims that the FBI only targeted foreign disinformation, making clear that everyday opinions of Americans were also in the crosshairs. They also have raised alarm across the political spectrum about the future of free speech in the world’s most famous constitutional republic. “We’ve entered into this period of American history where the range of permissible thought and speech has so narrowed that if you depart from it at all you are, you’re labeled, you are censored, and you are silenced,” retired Democrat Sen. Robert Torricelli told Just the News earlier this month. “It’s incredibly dangerous.”  […]  The revelations about just how the government impacted debate and targeted opinions for censorship have been accelerating. Just the News assembled 10 of the most important disclosures. The FBI set up a command center in San Francisco in fall 2020 that forwarded censorship requests from bureau headquarters to social media platforms. FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan testified in a free speech lawsuit . . . […]  The FBI succeeded frequently with social media firms when it forwarded censorship requests, including content posted by Americans.  Read more:https://justthenews.com/accountability/ten-big-revelations-showing-government-pressure-big-tech-censor-americans-widespread

Cleveland: FBI Office Investigating Hunter Biden Sent Twitter Numerous Censorship Requests Right Before 2020 Election

Emails released on Saturday as part of the latest dump of the “Twitter Files” reveal that the week before the 2020 presidential election, the FBI field office investigating Hunter Biden sent multiple censorship requests to Twitter — so many in fact, a top attorney for the tech giant found it “odd.” This blockbuster detail from the weekend came mere days after the FBI issued a statement framing coverage of the “Twitter Files” as “misinformation” being peddled by “conspiracy theorists.” The FBI has “some folks in the Baltimore field office and at HQ that are just doing keyword searches for violations,” then-Twitter legal executive Stacia Cardille stressed in a Nov. 3, 2020, email to Jim Baker, the then-deputy general counsel for Twitter. “This is probably the 10th request I have dealt with in the last 5 days,” Cardille continued, before telling Baker to let her know if he had any other questions.” Less than an hour later, Baker responded to Cardille, noting it was “odd” that the FBI is “searching for violations of our policies.”  Independent journalist Matt Taibbi published these emails as part of a 50-something Christmas Eve “Twitter Files” thread that he remarked showed “the FBI acting as doorman to a vast program of social media surveillance and censorship, encompassing agencies across the federal government – from the State Department to the Pentagon to the CIA.” Read more: https://thefederalist.com/2022/12/27/fbi-office-investigating-hunter-biden-sent-twitter-numerous-censorship-requests-right-before-2020-election/

Hubbard: Twitter censored accurate COVID information that conflicted with federal sentiments, new files show

Twitter altered the COVID conversation by censoring information that was true but not in line with U.S. government policy, discrediting public health experts who disagreed and suppressing contrarian users, the latest installment of the “Twitter Files” showed Monday. “[B]oth the Trump and Biden administrations directly pressed Twitter executives to moderate the platform’s pandemic content according to their wishes,” reporter David Zweig said in the 10th Twitter Files release. […] . .  .  the latest information shows the Trump White House attempted to work with major technology companies such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft, to control conversation during the COVID pandemic. When President Joe Biden came in, the White House began focusing on “anti-vaxxer accounts” during meetings with Twitter, Zweig reported. The Biden administration specifically targeted reporter Alex Berenson, who was critical of vaccines and subsequently removed from Twitter.

ALL EYES ARE ON ARIZONA

(12/24/22) Sundance: Arizona Judge Rules Against Kari Lake – Multiple Simultaneous Election Errors and Mistakes, But No Irrefutable Proof of Purposeful Intent

Yes, Judge Peter A Thompson has ruled from the Maricopa Superior Court of Arizona, that success for Mrs. Kari Lake’s lawsuit was contingent upon her being able to prove malicious intent on behalf of the country election officials. [Read 10-page Ruling HERE] The Maricopa County officials have denied malicious intent and are afforded great benefit of doubt; after all, the election result was duly certified. Therefore, absent direct evidence of corrupt intent by the election officials, which would require them to make admissions in court, any certified outcome is considered valid. […]  Lastly, the defendant has requested that Mrs. Lake be punished by the court for attempting to question the certification of the election as validated by her opponent, the court will consider what punishment to impose and proclaim the sanctions after Monday, December 26, 2022.

Today, in the relative quiet of Christmas Eve, when it was as politically expedient as possible to do so, Judge Peter Thompson released his ruling siding with the defendants in Lake v. Hobbs, ordering the confirmation of Katie Hobbs’ so-called “win” in the gubernatorial race by a margin of 17,117 votes. Thompson chose to enter us into Scenario B in my article outlining the two possible outcomes related to his decision.  From that article: Caving to pressure, Judge Thompson . . .[…]  Thompson, regardless of whether he adhered to technicalities in rendering his decision, has now joined Mark Brnovich, Doug Ducey, and countless others in the ranks of feckless Arizonans who failed to be etched in history as courageous men who acted boldly when the Republic counted on them to put a halt to corruption that threatens the existence of not only the state, but America herself.

Concepcion: Katie Hobbs seeks sanctions against Kari Lake after Arizona judge dismisses election challenge lawsuit

Democratic Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs and Maricopa County filed for sanctions Monday against Republican Kari Lake, less than 48 hours after a judge ruled against Lake’s efforts to have herself declared the winner of Arizona’s governor race. Hobbs and the county asked for sanctions against Lake and her legal team after an Arizona judge denied Lake’s bid to reverse the results of the November election in a two-day trial. Lake, a prominent election denier and Trump ally, was allowed to go to trial last week with two of her 10 claims, which alleged misconduct with ballot printers and problems with ballot chain of custody.

In an order Tuesday, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson declined to impose sanctions against Lake and her lawyers, saying Lake’s failure to prove her case doesn’t “equate to a finding that her claims were, or were not, groundless and presented in bad faith.”

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Hayward: Chinese Tourists Flock to the Borders, Potentially Spreading Coronavirus Outbreak Worldwide 

Travel bookings surged in China on Tuesday after the National Immigration Administration announced passport applications will once again be processed as of January 8, 2023. The policy change ends years-old travel restrictions just as the biggest coronavirus wave of the entire pandemic sweeps across China. Several other countries, such as Japan and India, announced their own restrictions on Chinese travelers in response. Some Chinese provinces are now reporting millions of coronavirus infections in a single day, as an even more infectious variant of the highly contagious Omicron strain spreads like wildfire through a population with very little natural immunity, thanks to years of dictator Xi Jinping’s brutal “zero Covid” citywide lockdowns. This would seem like an odd time to loosen (or, as the Chinese Communist Party likes to say, “optimize”) travel restrictions, unless one is determined to ensure the incredibly contagious strain of coronavirus ravaging one’s population is spread as quickly as possible across the world, to ensure China is not the only country to suffer its economy-crushing symptoms.

Ng & Lance: China Had Biological Weapons Ambitions Long Before Pandemic: House Intelligence Committee Member

“In 2005, the U.S. State Department publicly stated the U.S. assessment that China also operates an offensive biological weapons program, specifically identifying two Chinese entities as likely involved, one of which is the Fifth Institute. In a 2006 declaration of compliance with the Biological and Toxic Weapons Convention, China acknowledged that the Fifth Institute specifically conducts research on SARS coronaviruses,” the report reads. Wenstrup also took note of the book titled “The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Artificial Humanized Viruses as Genetic Weapons,” released by AMMS in 2015.

“The book described how to create weaponized chimeric SARS coronaviruses, the potentially broader scope for their use compared to traditional bioweapons, and the benefits of being able to plausibly deny that such chimeric coronaviruses were artificially created rather than naturally occurring,” the report states.

Roach: Ukrainian Foreign Influence Endangers America

The unfurling and presentation of the Ukraine flag by Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris at the conclusion of Zelenskyy’s speech were particularly unseemly. This level of identification with a foreign state shows a deep confusion about where the loyalties and priorities of our political leaders should be.

This slavishness is particularly laughable after the pious nonsense about “foreign interference” in the 2016 election. Congress’ sorry dereliction of duty was not just the fault of the Democrats but, rather, a symptom of a broken political system. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said, “Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans . . . . That’s how we see the challenges confronting the country at the moment.” […]  This is an oligarchy in action, the uniparty, the swamp. This is where the pretend representatives of the people join forces with invocations about Our Democracy™ and “our values” all the more strenuously as they transfer money, weapons, and our national honor to shady foreigners and cronies.

They include the EU collapsing because Britain rejoins and Nato seeking to assassinate the Russian leader – a forecast from the deputy head of Vladimir Putin’s security council, Dmitry Medvedev, a former president and premier.The Kremlin worldview also sees the United Kingdom breaking apart with Northern Ireland joining the Irish Republic.

LaChance: Habitual Election Denier Rep. Jamie Raskin Calls Electoral College a ‘Danger’ to Democracy, American People

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a member of the January 6th Committee in the House, is now claiming that the Electoral College is a threat to democracy. Remember when liberals claimed that Trump was a threat to our cherished norms? Good times. Have you noticed that anything Democrats don’t like is a threat to our democracy? CNN reports this without a hint of irony: . . .[…]  Rep. Jamie Raskin, a member of the House January 6 select committee, said reforming the Electoral College to ensure the presidential winner reflects the outcome of the popular vote would be the next step to safeguard democracy.

“The Electoral College now – which has given us five popular-vote losers as president in our history, twice in this century alone – has become a danger, not just to democracy, but to the American people. It was a danger on January 6,” the Maryland Democrat said in an interview with Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that aired Sunday. “There are so many curving byways and nooks and crannies in the Electoral College, that there are opportunities for a lot of strategic mischief. We should elect the president the way we elect governors, senators, mayors, representatives, everybody else.

Duggan:  Massive red flag could spell disaster for Americans’ pension plans

U.S. government pension funds currently have the lowest cash holdings since the 2008 financial crisis, and corporate pensions’ cash holdings are barely above the 13-year low they hit in 2021, which could spell disaster in the event of a financial crisis. Over the past 15 years, public pensions had 2.45% cash holdings and private pensions had 2.07% on average, but those have dropped to 1.9% and 1.7% respectively, according to The Wall Street Journal. […]  “The insolvency of many pensions funds, which was caused by making promises that could never be paid, will eventually rear its head in a financial crisis — it is just a question of when the music will stop and who will be left without a seat,” E.J.

Kelly: Traitors

A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. But there are only a few profane words to describe the obscene scene as the two women closest in line for the presidency hoisted the Ukrainian flag from the dias of the House of Representatives while swooning over Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as Congress cheered on December 21. (This appears to be the first time in history the flag of another nation essentially flew inside the U.S. Capitol building.) “They asked me to bring this flag to you, to the U.S. Congress, to members of the House of Representatives and senators whose decisions can save millions of people,” Zelenskyy said before handing the flag to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris. “This flag is a symbol of our victory in this war.” But even more telling—sickening?—was the image in the same photo of a House staffer wearing a black face mask standing silently, eyes cast downward, behind a tri-folded American flag in a shadow box as the celebration ensued. The unintentional contrast said it all. Our once-thriving and free country is slowly dying at the hands of frauds, crooks, and cowards—and they’re not even trying to hide it from us. They are flaunting it. After two decades of gradually amassing power and control under the ruse of national security, the ruling class is exercising that power in a ruthless way.

BIDEN’S COVID VACCINE MANDATES

Rintrah: The trainwreck of all trainwrecks: Billions of people stuck with a broken immune response

I’ll try to avoid repeating what we already addressed in the previous two articles on this subject. After mRNA vaccination the immune response against Spike is shifting to IgG4, which is how your body responds after repeat exposure to stuff it needs to tolerate, like bee venom, pollen or peanut proteins. First the big chart, of what you want to see after a SARS-COV-2 infection: . . . […]  The death toll is rising in unison with the viral load, because the excess mortality is not a direct product of the vaccine, it is an indirect product of the vaccine interfering with our response to this virus: . . .[…]  We have a big wave of deaths in march 2020, then we had two deadly winters, so excess mortality is now supposed to be negative. We already “ran out” of the people who would die during the flu season. Yet 27% more people died than you would expect last week. That’s supposed to worry people with an IQ above room temperature, but they just call it “unexplained” and try to ignore it. […]  You already know the story: After the second shot, IgG4 begins to show up. This gets worse with the breakthrough infections, then it gets worse again with the third shot. Now we have updated findings from breakthrough infections after the third shot. And this will shock you, but it gets worse again: . . .   Read more:https://www.rintrah.nl/the-trainwreck-of-all-trainwrecks-billions-of-people-stuck-with-a-broken-immune-response/

Berenson: VERY URGENT: Do Covid mRNA vaccines damage our ability to control the coronavirus after a booster shot?

A new peer-reviewed paper has troubling news for anyone who has received multiple mRNA shots, suggesting the immune system paradoxically weakens a crucial part of its Covid response after the third jab. The immune shift causes the body to make relatively more of a less potent kind of antibody to Covid, displacing antibodies that attack the virus more aggressively. The change could heighten the risk of Covid infection and mean that people who are infected suffer longer and more serious cases. It may also increase the chance of certain autoimmune disorders, though that connection is more speculative.

Worse, the researchers found evidence that being infected with Sars-Cov-2 after receiving a booster worsens rather than reverses the shift. Read more:https://alexberenson.substack.com/p/very-urgent-do-covid-mrna-vaccines?utm_source=profile&utm_medium=reader2

Berenson: URGENT: Two new studies show mRNA-jabbed people have a much higher risk of getting Covid than unvaccinated people

People who have received mRNA Covid vaccines are at least twice as likely to be infected with the coronavirus as unvaccinated people, according to two new papers from researchers in Indiana and Ohio. Worse, the newer of the two studies, which covered Omicron this fall, found risk actually rises with the number of shots. People who had received three or more shots were more than three times as likely to be infected as those who hadn’t received any. For people who have been vaccinated – especially those who have received a third or fourth shot – the papers will make for disturbing reading. They suggest vaccinated people may have few good options to protect themselves from infection should a more virulent variant of Omicron emerge.

THE WOKE MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Bienenfeld: Take This Potentially Deadly Vaccine, Or We Will Deny You Lifesaving Care

Who would have ever thought that, in the United States of America, a sick child would be denied lifesaving medical treatment solely because she wasn’t vaccinated against COVID-19? Yulia is the adopted daughter of two military veterans, Chrissy and Lee Hicks. Duke University Hospital is cruelly denying her a kidney transplant because she is unvaxxed. […]  It should frighten every citizen that our government and the medical community have largely closed ranks. The perception among many is that the explanation for leftist corporate behavior is ideological. I see it as more dollars driven—profit above all else—although both situations exist. Twitter attests to this. […]  As is known today, manipulating the COVID-19 data allowed leftist operatives and politicians to smear President Donald Trump and drive him from office. At that time, presidential candidate Joe Biden never let up blaming Trump for driving up the death count, calling it unacceptable. Yet, there were more COVID deaths under Biden than Trump when looking at a comparable timeline. By January 20, 2022, there were more than twice as many deaths under the Biden Administration as that of his predecessor. Read more at American Thinker.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: DESTROY THE FAMILY UNIT

Prager: Leftists defend shutting out conservative grandparents

Dennis Prager covers widespread reactions to his column about progressives’ intolerance. My last column, “Why Many Conservatives Won’t Be with Their Children or Grandchildren This Christmas,” dealt with the issue of parents whose left-wing adult children have cut off all contact with their parents because the parents are on the right – children who will not even allow their parents to have contact with their grandchildren. One would think that any person with a functioning conscience and a normal human heart would feel for these parents. As I wrote in the column, if the roles were reversed – that is, if a right-wing child severed all contact with his or her parents because the parents were on the left, I would feel awful for those parents and condemn any conservative child who did such a thing. Here are three of the many typical comments from conservative parents and grandparents (from Townhall.com): . . .

The column was apparently forwarded to many leftists and discussed on various left-wing websites. Even though I believe that the further left one goes, the more likely one is to be mean, I admit to having been surprised at the cruelty, even sadism, that characterizes left-wing reactions to my column. […] Nearly every one of the many left-wing responses I read – both on right-wing and left-wing sites – supported the left-wing children who deprive their parents of contact with them and with the grandchildren.

Jacoby: The Takeover

Self-righteous professors have spawned self-righteous students and unleashed them into the public square. In 1987 I published The Last Intellectuals: American Culture in the Age of Academe which elicited heated responses. Only now do I see I got something wrong—as did my critics. Some had objected to a term I introduced, “public intellectual,” as redundant and misleading. Others rejected the main argument. I proposed a generational account of American intellectuals. For earlier American intellectuals, the university remained peripheral because it was small, underfunded, and distant from cultural life. The Edmund Wilsons and Lewis Mumfords earlier in the 20th century to the Jane Jacobs and Betty Friedans later saw themselves as writers and journalists, not professors. But I missed something, the dawning takeover of the public sphere by campus denizens and lingo.

Oliveira: West Point military academy is starting to remove ALL Confederate statues and symbols from its campus – including a portrait and stone bust of Gen. Robert E. Lee

The school began what it described as a ‘multi-phased process’ of removing or modifying the items during its holiday break this month. Any objects taken down will be placed in storage for the time being. Also coming down this month is a bronze plaque that depicts the history of the United States and includes an image of a hooded Ku Klux Klan member. Earlier this year the school defended keeping the plaque up. West Point was compelled to take the action by recommendations from a Congressional panel known as the Naming Commission, which was organized to decide what to do with Confederate names and imagery present at US military bases.

CLIMATE EMERGENCY: IT’S POLITICAL 

Justice: SEC Fakes Approval For New Climate Regulations From Activists, Foreign Investors While Ignoring American Companies’ Mass Opposition

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is relying on a network of foreign investors to present an illusion of broad support for the agency’s proposed climate disclosure rule, which threatens to increase structural risks to the American economy. In March, the trade agency outlined new regulations requiring firms to report their estimated energy emissions. While the SEC technically only has jurisdiction over publicly traded companies, the broad nature of the agency’s proposal aims to coerce private businesses into carbon calculations that track the behavior of their customers. Firms that fail to comply with government standards are subject to fines and lawsuits. The new rules are “a disingenuous power grab by the SEC,” Will Hild, the executive director of Consumers’ Research, said in an interview. “By requiring the corporations the SEC regulates to make scope 2 emissions disclosures, those corporations will be forced to require the businesses they source from to calculate and disclose their emissions or stop doing business with them,” Hild told The Federalist. “So even if a business is private (not publicly traded) but their customers are public companies, then the SEC will have effectively forced them to participate in the disclosures scheme.” Read more:https://thefederalist.com/2022/12/28/sec-fakes-approval-for-new-climate-regulations-from-activists-foreign-investors-while-ignoring-american-companies-mass-opposition/ 

Temple: A startup says it’s begun releasing particles into the atmosphere, in an effort to tweak the climate

A startup claims it has launched weather balloons that may have released reflective sulfur particles in the stratosphere, potentially crossing a controversial barrier in the field of solar geoengineering. Geoengineering refers to deliberate efforts to manipulate the climate by reflecting more sunlight back into space, mimicking a natural process that occurs in the aftermath of large volcanic eruptions. In theory, spraying sulfur and similar particles in sufficient quantities could potentially ease global warming. It’s not technically difficult to release such compounds into the stratosphere. But scientists have mostly (though not entirely) refrained from carrying out even small-scale outdoor experiments. And it’s not clear that any have yet injected materials into that specific layer of the atmosphere in the context of geoengineering-related research. […] The company’s behavior plays into long-held fears that a “rogue” actor with no particular knowledge of atmospheric science or the implications of the technology could unilaterally choose to geoengineer the climate, without any kind of consensus around whether it’s okay to do so—or what the appropriate global average temperature should be. That’s because it’s relatively cheap and technically simple to do, at least in a crude way. David Victor, a political scientist at the University of California, San Diego, warned of such a scenario more than a decade ago. A “Greenfinger, self-appointed protector of the planet … could force a lot of geoengineering on his own,” he said, invoking the Goldfinger character from a 1964 James Bond movie, best remembered for murdering a woman by painting her gold.  Read more:https://www.technologyreview.com/2022/12/24/1066041/a-startup-says-its-begun-releasing-particles-into-the-atmosphere-in-an-effort-to-tweak-the-climate/

Utter: Focus on emotion over rational thinking says Washington state Department of Health

The Washington state Department of Health’s climate curriculum instructs teachers to focus on “emotions” over “rational thinking”, according to curriculum lesson plans. The department recently released a five-part curriculum to help students learn about the “intersections of biological, societal, and environmental issues.” The second phase of the curriculum, “Climate Change & Pregnancy,” tells educators and students to “pay attention” to their emotions as “for too long” science has caused “rational thinking” to be prioritized. (Rational thinking? Good God, no! What has science to do with rational thinking?!) “Climate change and pregnancy”? Pray tell, “educators,” does climate change cause pregnancy? Prevent it? Or both at the same time? In any case, man caused climate change is causing “pregnancy change,” right? (The hell with rational thinking, we feel that’s the case! We want it to be the case!) Prioritizing emotion over reason would be a disaster for virtually every vocation, industry, government department, and endeavor. Read more at American Thinker.

Zeisloft: ‘The Real Minimum Wage Is Zero’: McDonald’s Restaurant Uses Automation For Pickups And Orders

Conservative-leaning commentators noted that the restaurant concept comes after activist campaigns and left-wing politicians spent years calling for minimum wage hikes. The new test restaurant also hits the marketplace as historic labor shortages present difficulties to companies attempting to fill their payrolls, worsening inflationary pressures and supply chain bottlenecks. “The real minimum wage is zero and you are always replaceable,” BASEDPolitics President Hannah Cox said on social media, alluding to a phrase favored by conservative economist Thomas Sowell. “If you want more money find a way to add more value. Anyone telling you differently has no idea how to eradicate poverty.” Read more: https://www.dailywire.com/news/the-real-minimum-wage-is-zero-mcdonalds-restaurant-uses-automation-for-pickups-and-orders

(H/T GC) Delaney: Dolly Parton Stops Mid-Song on Christmas Special to Deliver a Stunning Rebuke to the Devil

Perhaps one of the devil’s best schemes to dupe the unbeliever is to attempt to convince humanity that he isn’t real. Bringing the reality of his existence into the light is hardly a new idea. Perhaps one of the most notable authors who has worked to do so is C.S. Lewis, in his book “The Screwtape Letters.” In a nutshell, Lewis’ story is about a more experienced demon training up a less experienced one for effective ways to bring a person into bondage so they can eventually be drug to hell. Singer Dolly Parton’s song, “Go to Hell,” seems to have a focus of helping the listener understand that not only is there a real devil that wants to kill, steal and destroy each and every person on the planet, but also that those who have a personal relationship with Jesus have the power to rebuke and overcome the attacks of the enemy on their life, even as they walk in the plans and purposes that God has for them.

MCCOTTER BOOK REVIEW

Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America’s Fight over World War II, 1939-1941 by Lynne Olson

MCCOTTER: The Democrats’ DIY Manual for Autocracy

The Democratic president was furious. He considered Republicans fascists who colluded with foreign autocrats and tyrants to impose a right-wing dictatorship upon Americans. Attuned to his whims, members of his administration and fellow Democrats echoed his view and denounced the GOP as fascists.
The word began to circulate that [the GOP nominee] was nothing but a stalking horse for reactionary, big business Republicans who planned a Fascist-style takeover of the government… “[The GOP nominee] is distinctly dangerous,” [a cabinet member wrote]. “With him in the White House, the monied interests would be in full control and we could expect an American brand of fascism as soon as he could set it up…” [The Democrats’] vice president nominee said… “But you can be sure that every Nazi, every Hitlerite, and every appeaser is a Republican.” Coming to believe his own campaign’s mudslinging smears, the paranoid president accused his opponents of undermining national security; and, despite a congressional ban upheld by the Supreme Court, nevertheless directed the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to surveille, investigate, and compile files upon the millions of citizens who disagreed with the president and his administration by, in significant part, through the illegal means of spying upon their communications. […]  In sum, what FDR and his administration allowed Hoover and his FBI to do was patently illegal; but, because the former refused to not only follow the law, but aided and abetted for partisan gain his underling’s illegal behavior, the shredding of the constitution, federal statutes, and civil liberties continued for over thirty years. Today, the Biden administration, the Democratic Party, and the FBI have engaged in the very practices employed by the Franklin Roosevelt administration.

Raw Egg Nationalist: MORE MIGRANTS! – Move Over ‘The Great Replacement’, The ‘Great Replenishment’ Is the New Plan to Flood Rural Areas with Cheap Labor.

The UK government wants migrants to spend at least five years living in rural parts of the country, as a way to combat depopulation and “replenish” aging communities. Migrants to Western countries like the UK usually prefer to settle in urban areas, leading the government’s Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to believe special measures are needed to ensure rural areas do not miss out on the “benefits of diversity”. These special measures were set out in the MAC’s new annual report published at the beginning of December. The measures are aimed, in particular, at contributing to the government’s bizarrely monikered “levelling-up agenda”, described as a “moral, social and economic programme for the whole of government” to “spread opportunity more equally across the UK”. Rural areas such as Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are among the poorest in northern Europe, as well as being home to older populations. Increases in the proportion of people over 65 in rural areas are driven in part by internal migration from cities. Places like London and Birmingham have seen net outflows of over-65s in recent years, and a net influx of younger people.
