Daily News Roundup

Estimated Reading Time: 34 minutes


Rick Moran contributor to PJ Media: After securing the most modern, lethal battle tanks on planet earth, Ukraine now wants fourth-generation F-16 fighter jets. Begging your pardon, Mr. President, but what’s next? Nuclear weapons?

Eric Utter contributor to American Thinker: The CEO of Pfizer is on record as saying that “a dream” that he and his WEF-loving peers had, back in January of 2019, was to “reduce the number of people in the world by 50%.” By 2023. He seems nice. I would, however, ask the question, “Which 50% of the world’s people should have been dispensed with by now?” I mean, who gets to decide which one of every two — or five of every ten — people we see are expendable? Klaus Schwab? Adam Schiff? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? Ilhan Omar? Keith Olbermann? Eric Swalwell? Maxine Waters? RuPaul? Greta Thunberg?

Josiah Lippincott contributor to American Greatness: True patriots should dedicate themselves to fighting utopian and tyrannical communism wherever they find it. They should promote and focus within themselves the habits of resistance. We will not submit. Let this phrase never depart from your lips or from your mind. We will not submit. Bury it in your heart. We will not submit. When we have done this, and only when we have done it, will victory in this spiritual war come within reach.

Thomas D. Klingenstein and John Fonte contributors to the American Mind: First and foremost, the public must understand that America is at war. It must be made clear that the woke revolutionaries wish not to reform America along the lines of, say, the New Deal or Great Society but ultimately want to destroy the American way of life. The woke revolutionaries do not hide their objective; indeed they flaunt it. They keep telling us their actions are designed to “fundamentally transform” the American way of life.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: In sum, we are living in anarchy, as institutions themselves have become nihilistic and weapons of the revolution. The Left, in viral fashion, took over the DNA of America’s institutions, and used them to help destroy their creators.

Roger Kimball contributor to American Greatness: The January 6 Committee may have shut up shop, Liz Cheney may have scuttled back to her constituency in Georgetown and at CNN, but the great Democratic vendetta machine is still fired up and pounding along, looking for people to smash and livelihoods to destroy.

J..B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: In a time of social division and disintegration, rampant immorality, and intentional cruelty, Hamlin’s collapse may have led to the first moment since the 9/11 terrorist attacks twenty years ago when so many Americans, united in common purpose, bowed their heads and prayed together.  When it finally became clear a full week later that the young player would not only live, but also most likely recover physically, Americans all over the country and from all walks of life knew they had witnessed something miraculous.

Michele Gama Sosa reporter for Daily Caller: Instead of pussyfooting around the true purpose of the Second Amendment with stale references to hunting and self-defense against criminals (which is still very important), it’s time to bluntly remind politicians in both parties that the Second Amendment is first and foremost a protection against people like them. Not against the vague concept of a tyrannical government, but real, corrupt, power-hungry officials who never saw a limit they wouldn’t overstep.

Elon Mush tweeted: Population collapse is an existential problem for humanity, not overpopulation! 

Alex Newman contributor to The New American: Weaponizing public schools for sinister purposes, an obscure United Nations institute is quietly working to transform education worldwide to impose radical political and spiritual values and beliefs on children. It is all happening under the guise of “social-emotional learning,” or SEL, a scheme hatched at a New Age organization whose founder and namesake was a follower of Lucifer Publishing Company chief Alice Bailey.

Athena Thorne contributor to PJ Media: Jews eat kosher, Muslims have halal, Hindus eschew meat, and many Christians fast during Lent. So naturally, the fastest-growing religion today — earth and climate worship — is developing its own faith-based dietary restrictions. “Climatarians” (also called “reducitarians” or “climavores”) are people who make their food choices based on how what they eat will impact the earth, with the aim of reducing their carbon “foodprint.”

Rep. Rachel Jones Arizona State House tweeted: “The re-election of Ronna McDaniel was a huge middle finger to those of us who are fired up and ready to win our country back. This is why it’s so important to take back our party at the state level! Choose people who are beholden to YOU. Not special interests”

Michael Snyder contributor to America First Report: As the traditional family unit becomes less prominent in our society, public schools are taking a more central role in raising our children.


Weber: Trump proposes big changes to public education, saying it’s been overtaken by ‘Radical Left maniacs’

Continuing to craft a second generation of his policies, former President Donald Trump is proposing a dramatic change in the education sphere that would empower parents to elect and fire school principals. “Our public schools have been taken over by the Radical Left maniacs,” Trump said in a video announcement released late Thursday night. Trump said the first step in his plan to “save American education” and restore power to parents would be to cut federal funding for any school or program pushing Critical Race Theory, gender ideology or other “inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content to children.

Downey, Jr.: Call 2024 What It Is — Trump vs. Communism — Choose Wisely: It Might Be Our Last Election

Author David Horowitz’s new book Final Battle: The Next Election Could Be the Last suggests that the communists could be on the threshold of ending democracy in the United States. He shouldn’t be ignored as a hyperbolic whackjob. The DOJ and FBI have been weaponized against patriots. That Betsy Ross flag flying on your meemaw’s porch is now considered a sign of “military extremism.” Concerned parents who show up at school board meetings are considered “terrorists” by federal law enforcement. Confused, attention-hungry kids can legally go to California and have their genitals removed without their parents’ approval. How can you not see it? Horowitz recently pointed out two phenomena taking place that could save our nation: Trump’s rallies, which have created a huge conservative movement, and parents revolting against the commies in our kids’ schools. […]  The video below is the CEO of Pfizer — one of the companies that makes clot shots — talking about reducing the population by 50%. […]  Check out the WEF’s “predictions” for what the world will be like in seven years. Spoiler alert: you’ll own nothing, eat less meat, and be neighbors with people from nations that hate you. Seriously, you need to watch this: . . .

[…]  Put your fragile feelings on the back burner, ladies. If you think mean tweets are bad, wait until you stand in line for three hours to buy toilet paper, or worse, your child dies because the World Health Organization (WHO) decided your kid was the wrong race to receive medicine. [NOTE: The Pfizer CEO clip doesn’t appear to be altered however, in today’s tech world, anything is possible.]

Zubatov: Plumbing ChatGPT’s Left-Liberal Biases

Recently, I documented the flagrant political bias of the headline-grabbing, machine-learning chatbot known as ChatGPT by showing how, though it had no problem acknowledging the racial complexion of poverty in America, it absolutely and adamantly refused to acknowledge some basic, albeit uncomfortable, statistical realities about the racial complexion of crime. I decided to explore further by asking ChatGPT a host of questions to test its political preferences on a wider range of issues. I expected to find bias. What I did not expect is how shameless and barefaced the bias would be. Bear in mind, ChatGPT is hell-bent on refusing to ascribe to itself any opinions or beliefs whatsoever. If you ask it directly what its opinion of any issue is, you will invariably get back a more polite version of, “Sorry, buddy; I’m just artificial intelligence. I don’t do opinion.” And yet, if you ask it pretty much any political question, you’ll get opinions— incredibly biased opinions—in boatloads.

Clark: Google’s new AI turns text into music

Google researchers have made an AI that can generate minutes-long musical pieces from text prompts, and can even transform a whistled or hummed melody into other instruments, similar to how systems like DALL-E generate images from written prompts (via TechCrunch). The model is called MusicLM, and while you can’t play around with it for yourself, the company has uploaded a bunch of samples that it produced using the model. The examples are impressive. There are 30-second snippets of what sound like actual songs created from paragraph-long descriptions that prescribe a genre,

Thorne: The Climate Faithful Have Developed Religious Dietary Restrictions (and You Guessed It — We’ll All Be Expected to Eat This Way)

Jews eat kosher, Muslims have halal, Hindus eschew meat, and many Christians fast during Lent. So naturally, the fastest-growing religion today — earth and climate worship — is developing its own faith-based dietary restrictions. “Climatarians” (also called “reducitarians” or “climavores”) are people who make their food choices based on how what they eat will impact the earth, with the aim of reducing their carbon “foodprint.” The Earthist version of original sin is that, simply by living, people commit climate sin every time they eat, breathe, travel, and heat or cool their homes. Naturally, the younger generations are the most pious Earthists, having been recently exposed to the most evangelical Earthist education system yet. “Climavores, as you might expect, follow a diet less defined by ingredients—unlike veganism, for example,” global consulting firm Kearney informs us. “Instead, Climavores actively make food choices based on climate impacts, practicing climate-conscious eating based on a series of dietary trade-offs intended to benefit the planet.” […]  And as the older faiths are gradually supplanted by the Church of the Climate, societal changes are in the works that reflect and support the new religion. Axios reports: . . .

[…] But Leftists are nothing if not authoritarian, and soon the choices will be made for you. More from Kearney: . . .

Queen: It’s Now Cheaper to Drive 100 Miles in a Gas-Powered Car Than in an EV

The Biden administration is always telling us that the best thing we can do is buy an electric vehicle. In fact, various members of the administration treat it almost flippantly — it’s a no-brainer that you should buy an expensive electric car or two. Doing so will rescue the planet from certain environmental collapse and will save you loads of money, even though the average cost of an electric vehicle was $66,000 as of August of last year. Plenty of people are falling for it, and it’s easy to see why. The siren song of the tax credit is hard to ignore, and the idea of not having to contend with rising prices at the gas pump is attractive. But is it all true?

Kimball: Justice for John Eastman

At the top of that hit list is John Eastman, the distinguished constitutional scholar who made the unforgivable error of offering legal advice to President Trump in the turbulent aftermath of the 2020 election. I have written about Eastman before, both in this space and elsewhere. He has had his life turned upside down. He was shuffled out of his position as dean of the Chapman Law School and has been treated as a pariah by colleagues in his profession. Anti-Trump protestors regularly congregate at the foot of his driveway—fortunately, a long one—to vilify him and his association with the Bad Orange Man. Now the State Bar of California has announced that it has filed an official complaint of 11 charges against Eastman, alleging that he endeavored to “plan, promote, and assist then-President Trump in executing a strategy, unsupported by facts or law, to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election by obstructing the count of electoral votes of certain states.” Not a single one of those charges is true.[…]  As Margot Cleveland wrote at The Federalist, the California Bar has essentially weaponized its disciplinary process along ideological or political grounds. If the reasoning behind the California Bar were to prevail, Cleveland observed, then Senator Ted Cruz and the attorneys general from 18 states should all be disbarred. As Eastman noted in his remarks Friday, the fundamental message implicit in the California Bar’s vendetta against him is this: “We’re the government. We’ve defined what is truth. How dare you question us.”

Pullmann: Classified Documents Are A New Potential Trap For Any Politician Who Crosses The Deep State

Procedural complaints about classified documents are quickly turning into a catch-all trap that can depose duly elected officials, especially those tasked with oversight of U.S. intelligence agencies. Last August, an unprecedented classified document complaint provided a pretext for an FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s home, in an eerie echo of the use of police and military resources against opposing politicians typical of banana republics. That administrative power flex has now been turned into the unprecedented appointment of three special counsels, most recently against the deeply unpopular current Democrat Party figurehead, Joe Biden. This all reverses the American structure of elected officials maintaining oversight of unelected permanent administrators. Instead, we now have unelected bureaucrats performing selective “oversight” of elected officials. Of course, that pattern erases Americans’ deepest political birthright: government of the people, by the people, and for the people. A government not ultimately controlled by elected representatives of the citizenry is not a republic, nor is it any kind of democracy. Without elections truly affecting government policies, the original United States is no more and its elections are a sham.

The Right Scoop: Biden officials BLOCK Senate Intel Committee from briefing on Biden’s classified documents

Both Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Intel Committee are fuming after Biden’s ODNI refused to give them a briefing on the classified documents found all over Biden’s home and think tank. They were told that they couldn’t even be briefed in a classified setting. Here’s more from the Washington Times:

[…]  “I’m very disappointed with the lack of detail and a timeline when we’re going to get a briefing,” Mr. Warner said as he departed the meeting at the Capitol. “Every member of the committee, regardless of Democrat or Republican were unanimous in the position that we’re left in limbo until somehow a special counsel designates that it’s okay for us to get briefed, is not going to stand.” Mr. Warner’s frustrations were echoed by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, the top Republican on the committee. He said the administration’s stonewalling impeded the committee’s ability to do its job of providing oversight of the intelligence community.

The Right Scoop: Mark Levin says Biden needs to be questioned under oath by federal grand jury over classified docs

Levin also hammers a ridiculous story put out by USA Today claiming that VP Biden can declassify documents. “So after everybody is saying Trump can’t [declassify classified documents], because there’s no evidence that he did, they say the Vice President can. No he can’t!”, says Levin. The USA Today article suggested there’s a 2009 executive order where Obama said certain people could declassify documents, which would include the Vice President. But Levin says Biden could not declassify documents and the reason is the Constitution. He says the president can declassify documents – at will – because he’s the head of the executive branch. The Vice President is not.

Sundance: Google/YouTube Block Project Veritas Expose’ on Pfizer Executive Discussing “Directed Evolution”

According to the reasoning provided by YouTube, as outlined by O’Keefe, the undercover interview violated the YouTube terms of service for disinformation around the COVID-19 vaccines.  This justification despite the claim itself was coming from Pfizer, not Project Veritas.  James O’Keefe explains.

Clements: Colorado to Consider Its Own Gun Ban

Colorado appears ready to join other states in quashing Second Amendment rights. A draft of the “Mass Shooting Prevention Act,” expected to be introduced in the upcoming Colorado General Assembly legislative session, was made public, and Second Amendment advocates are concerned.

“This bill uses the most insane parts of the laws from California and New York,” Taylor Rhodes, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), told The Epoch Times. “This doesn’t just ban many commonly owned pistols and shotguns; this will ban almost 70 percent of all firearms overnight.” Rhodes was made aware of the bill draft almost three weeks ago. He said the proposed legislation is designed to greatly diminish Second Amendment rights in Colorado. “You might as well call this the ‘Gun Owners Get Out of Town Bill,’” Rhodes said. The proposed law expands the definition of “assault weapons” to cover

GAMA SOSA: Democrats Know The Real Purpose Of The Second Amendment — That’s Why They’re So Afraid Of It

The Second Amendment is once again in the Democrats’ crosshairs amid mass shootings, with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s latest “assault weapons” ban, and now Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claiming that the Founding Fathers would have supported banning certain guns. […]  When the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it was a shock to the world of monarchs and tyrants who kept their populations in line by force and decree. Its protections make America unique. Virtually no country has anything close to it. It gave meaning to the idea of being a citizen of a nation instead of the subject of a despot. The Militia Act of 1792 clarified that “every citizen, so enrolled and notified, shall, within six months thereafter, provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt…” In other words, citizens were required to own their own “weapons of war” for military service and presumably for other purposes as gleaned from the Founders’ own writings. George Mason explicitly wrote that the “militia” was made up of “We the People” and did not include elected officials.

Carlson & Gomez: McCarthy and Biden to meet on spending and debt ceiling; McCarthy says there will be no default

Speaker Kevin McCarthy says he is set to meet with President Joe Biden on Wednesday to discuss the Republican House majority’s views on federal government spending and raising the country’s borrowing limit in order to avoid a debt default. “I know the president said he didn’t want to have any discussions, but I think it’s very important that our whole government is designed to find compromise,” McCarthy said during an appearance on Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “I want to find a reasonable and a responsible way that we can lift the debt ceiling but take control of this runway spending,” McCarthy said, later adding, “I don’t think there’s anyone in America who doesn’t agree that there’s some wasteful Washington spending that we can eliminate.”

McCotter: A Win for Security and Sanity

Previously, I offered some advice to the new U.S. House GOP majority regarding committees, specifically that investigatory committees are not ends unto themselves but a means to crafting legislation that will improve Americans’ lives. Presently, then, let us look at the creation of a select committee that augurs well for the national security of our nation. […]  Following a leadership meeting circa 2007, I once referred to “Communist China.” A senior, powerful member from California countered, “there is no need to be provocative. There are no communists anymore.” I reminded my colleague how “that will come as a surprise to the over 70 million members of the Chinese Communist Party.” Fast forward 15 years, when another California Republican, Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), had a different opinion; and led the drive to establish the U.S. House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party. The bipartisan vote was 365-65. Per Reuters, all 65 Nays were cast by Democrats, who chose to put party ahead of country. […] Representative of the Democrats who voted to establish the committee was U.S. Representative Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.). According to a report by Samantha Aschieris of the Daily Signal (the news outlet of the Heritage Foundation), Moskowitz rightly asserted: . . .  […] Further, per the Daily Signal, the committee’s new chair, Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) certainly understands the stakes and intends to commence this task with alacrity: . . . […]  The committee will have to navigate some treacherous and predator-infested waters in the swamp, however.

Whedon: Jim Jordan probe into FBI, DOJ, DHS politicization takes shape with flurry of interview requests

With a flurry of interview requests on Friday to federal officials and Biden administration allies — coupled with a pointed warning of potential subpoenas to follow — House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan signaled his resolve to investigate allegations of growing politicization in federal law enforcement and administration moves to intimidate opponents and chill dissent. The Ohio Republican sent letters seeking testimony to five individuals: former head of the Department of Homeland Security’s abortive Disinformation Governance Board Nina Jankowicz; FBI Human Resources Branch Executive Assistant Director Jennifer Leigh Moore; former interim Executive Director and CEO of the National School Boards Association Chip Slaven; National Assessment Governing Board Trustee Viola Garcia; and former FBI agent Tim Thibault. The Daily Caller first reported on the letters to the first four of the five recipients listed above. The House Judiciary GOP Twitter account later published all five letters. The committee account indicated that a “compulsory process” would soon follow. Each recipient held or currently holds a position of influence relevant to alleged government efforts to censor or harass political opponents or politicize federal law enforcement.

Krisinger: Who does Representative Maria Salazar represent?

When a citizen is elected to Congress, they are conferred the title of “representative,” with each “representative” elected to a two-year term “serving the people of their specific congressional district.” So it was disconcerting to hear Representative Maria Elvira Salazar, a Republican from Florida’s 27th district, address the recently concluded World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, in her official congressional capacity and declare that she “represents” the millions of migrants presently inside the sovereign borders of this nation illegally. […]  Whether she unwittingly made her comments, not realizing that they would be taken as coming in her official capacity, she — not surprisingly — generated a loud and vocal reaction on social media.  Comments were quick to point out that the relatively junior Representative Salazar may be confused or not understand who exactly she was elected to “represent” in Congress.  Those millions of migrants are not her district’s constituents, and her ethnic affinity (she is Cuban-American) for most of the migrants does not supplant or supersede her congressional responsibilities for her district’s constituents.

Saavedra: Third Republican Rushes In To Defend Far-Left Democrat Ilhan Omar

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) defended far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) late last week against a push to remove her from the House Foreign Affairs Committee over her history of anti-Semitism. Buck’s support for Omar put Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s desire to remove her from the Committee in danger of failing after two other Republicans have already signaled opposition to it. “I think that we should not engage in this tit-for-tat,” Buck said during an interview. “I have a little bit less certainty about Congressman Schiff and Swalwell on Intelligence just because it’s a little bit different than a regular committee,” he added. “But I’m going to think through that and make a decision.”

[…]  The RNC wants money, the DNC wants power.  The RNC uses power to get money, the DNC uses money to get power.  The ideology of the DNC drives their donor contributions, whereas the donor contributions to the RNC drives their ideology.  This outlook explains the subtle difference between the two wings of the UniParty and also explains why Republicans have no ideological goals.

(H/T GC) Andrzejewski: Newsom Twosome: Siebel Newsom’s Films – Shown In Middle Schools – Feature Porn, Radical Gender Ideologies, And Her Husband Gavin

2.6 million students across 11,200 classrooms and 5,000 schools are subjected to Newsom’s films and curricula. FLOWCHART: How Jennifer Siebel Newsom used taxpayer dollars to trade with herself, her nonprofit organization, and her for-profit business. The organization refused to disclose how much of their screening revenues came from California public schools. California Governor Gavin Newsom and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, are the dream team. He runs the state and she’s a nonprofit founder, entrepreneur, and filmmaker.While her husband attends to state business, Siebel Newsom engages in her passion: advancing “gender justice” through her charitable nonprofit The Representation Project. According to tax documents the organization is “committed to building a thriving and inclusive society through films, education, and social activism.”   […]  Auditors at OpenTheBooks.com watched Newsom’s movies and read the lesson plans. What we found was, at times, shocking: sexually explicit images, political boosterism, and something called “The Genderbread Person.” Screenshot from “age-appropriate” middle school curriculum video for Miss Representation; see full video here.  Miss Representation’s curriculum links to “age-appropriate” video clips in its K-12 lesson plans and says that the full film is rated PG-14. (Certainly, parents may still object to clips from the “age-appropriate” film like the animated, upside down stripper shown above). [NOTE: Gavin Newsom, the Democrat 2024 nominee for president?]

Newman: UN Pushing New Age Spirituality on Schoolchildren With SEL, Neuroscience

The organization in question, part of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is known as the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development, or UNESCO MGIEP for short. Dominated by pagans, communists, New Agers, and fringe psychiatrists, the India-based UN institute has global reach, boasting that it guides education policy worldwide. Even a brief perusal of its website and reports reveals serious cause for alarm.  […]  At the end of the short video, the UN institute sums up its aims: “Changing mindsets,” “Challenging norms,” and “Transforming education for humanity.” […] The individuals involved also give the agenda away. Consider, for example, that the institute was launched by scandal-plagued UNESCO boss Irina Bokova. Before joining the UN, Bokova served as a high-ranking official in the mass-murdering Communist regime in Bulgaria. The New American exposed Bokova’s history of extremism in a series of articles years ago when she was being groomed for even higher office.  She is hardly the only known and unrepentant communist who has been instrumental in the UN’s “education” outfit. Another, Roza Otunbayeva, served as minister of foreign affairs and deputy head of government for the mass-murdering Soviet Kyrgyz Republic before serving as president of the Soviet National Commission of UNESCO and then taking a leadership role at the UNESCO MGIEP. […] Another leading advocate of UN-backed global spirituality with close ties to the population-control agenda is Azza Karam, the head of Religions for Peace. The global alliance of self-proclaimed religious leaders ranging from self-styled Christians to full-blown pagans is funded by the UN, the U.S. State Department, billionaire globalist George Soros, the Rockefeller clan, and more. Prior to taking over as secretary-general of the outfit, Karam worked at the ruthless population-control agency UN Population Fund (UNFPA), infamous for cooperating on forced abortions and other atrocities with the mass-murdering Chinese Communist regime in enforcing its barbaric one-child policy.

 Salgado: Utah Educators and Union Officials Caught Boasting of Secretly Teaching CRT

“You teach it to a group of seniors at West Jordan High and they don’t tell their parents.” Administrators, educators, and union officials in Utah were caught on video boasting about how they managed to keep teaching critical race theory or LGBTQ concepts to students, despite Utah’s bans on CRT in the classroom, according to a Jan. 27 tweet thread from Accuracy in Media. The Utah legislature passed two resolutions in May 2021 to ban CRT from schools, and the Utah Board of Education then approved similar restrictions in June 2021, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Snyder: Have You Heard of the “Tradwife Movement”?

In our time, everything about marriage, family and gender is being redefined, but not everyone is happy with these changes.  In fact, many long for a bygone era when life was simpler and families seemed to be much happier.  This desire to recapture what has been lost has spawned the “tradwife movement”, and this movement has been causing a tremendous amount of controversy all over social media in recent months.  Needless to say, many modern feminists absolutely abhor the social values of the 1950s, but it is precisely those values that “tradwives” are seeking to promoteOn certain corners of the internet, a segment of women is exhibiting a nostalgia for an era it has never known. These millennials and zoomers glamorize the aesthetics of 1950s Americana, donning retro fit-and-flare dresses and posting vintage illustrations of aproned housewives placing dinner on the table. The mainstream media has been trying to downplay the significance of this movement, and CNN even went so far as to label tradwives as a “fringe group”… […]  The Californian, who stays at home to cook, clean and look after the children while her husband goes out to work, said she adopted the homemaker mindset because her own mom wasn’t around enough when she was a kid. Spending more time with our children should actually be a national priority, because the truth is that our kids are a mess.

Lin & Strumpf: China’s Top Nuclear-Weapons Lab Used American Computer Chips Decades After Ban

China’s top nuclear-weapons research institute has bought sophisticated U.S. computer chips at least a dozen times in the past two and a half years, circumventing decades-old American export restrictions meant to curb such sales. A Wall Street Journal review of procurement documents found that the state-run China Academy of Engineering Physics has managed to obtain the semiconductors made by U.S. companies such as Intel Corp. and Nvidia Corp. since 2020 despite its placement on a U.S. export blacklist in 1997. The chips, which are widely used in data centers and personal computers, were acquired from resellers in China. Some were procured as components for computing systems, with many bought by the institute’s laboratory studying computational fluid dynamics, a broad scientific field that includes the modeling of nuclear explosions. Such purchases defy longstanding restrictions imposed by the U.S. that aim to prevent the use of any U.S. products for atomic-weapons research by foreign powers. The academy, known as CAEP, was one of the first Chinese institutions put on the U.S. blacklist, known as the entity list, because of its nuclear work.

Chang: Crazy Optimism About China’s Economy

China’s propagandists tell us the Chinese economy this year will “accelerate to 4.8%.” Foreign analysts are even more bullish. Goldman Sachs estimates growth of gross domestic product of 5.5%. China’s National Health Commission announced the end of the Communist Party’s “dynamic zero-Covid” policy on December 7. It did not take long for Wall Street to crank up the optimism machine. Morgan Stanley, on the following day, issued a research note predicting that Chinese equities would outperform emerging markets and global peers. Since then, financial analysts have been falling over themselves to say how China’s stocks will continue to soar this year. Stocks may soar for a while, but China’s economy is far sicker than analysts assume.

Wehner: Chinese vessels and aircraft appear in Taiwanese waters and airspace

Chinese military vessels and aircraft encroached on Taiwanese waters and airspace again, early Monday morning in what has become a daily flexing of power against the island nation. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense reported in a tweet that six Chinese military aircraft and five Chinese naval vessels were detected around 6 a.m. local time. Taiwan’s armed military forces are monitoring the situation, adding that aircraft, naval vessels and land-based missile systems are responding to the activities.

Brown: ‘Aim for the Head’: Air Force General’s Fiery Memo on China Bucks Biden Narrative

In what The Washington Post described as a “bombastic and unusual memo to troops under his command,” top Air Force Gen. Michael A. Minihan “warned personnel to speed their preparations for combat, citing Chinese President Xi Jinping’s aspirations and the possibility that Americans will not be paying attention until it is too late.” Minihan — who leads the Air Mobility Command — wrote in his memo that predicts the Chinese and U.S. military are on an accelerated timeline for conflict that he hopes he is wrong, but that “[my] gut tells me we will fight in 2025.” He noted that China’s genocidal leader Xi Jinping recently “won” a third term in charge of the CCP and previously established his government’s “war council in October 2022.”

(BIDEN’S WAR) Charap & Priebe: Avoiding a Long War

Discussion of the Russia-Ukraine war in Washington is increasingly dominated by the question of how it might end. To inform this discussion, this Perspective identifies ways in which the war could evolve and how alternative trajectories would affect U.S. interests. The authors argue that, in addition to minimizing the risks of major escalation, U.S. interests would be best served by avoiding a protracted conflict. The costs and risks of a long war in Ukraine are significant and outweigh the possible benefits of such a trajectory for the United States. Although Washington cannot by itself determine the war’s duration, it can take steps that make an eventual negotiated end to the conflict more likely. Drawing on the literature on war termination, the authors identify key impediments to Russia-Ukraine talks, such as mutual optimism about the future of the war and mutual pessimism about the implications of peace. The Perspective highlights four policy instruments the United States could use to mitigate these impediments: clarifying plans for future support to Ukraine, making commitments to Ukraine’s security, issuing assurances regarding the country’s neutrality, and setting conditions for sanctions relief for Russia.

On the 50th anniversary of the treat that led to defeat in the Vietnam War, Gen. Michael Flynn talks to host Steve Bannon about the war in Ukraine and how the Biden administration is creating a new quagmire there. “When we left Vietnam, it was a really sad day for America, and you mentioned the Killing Fields… there were millions of people massacred… So let’s fast forward to where we are today… We are about to enter a war… we are going to creep into this war …. and this is going to be turned into an absolute disaster.

VDH: Anarchy, American-Style

The 1960s revolution was both anarchic and nihilist. But it was waged against—not from—the establishment. Hippies and the Left either attacked institutions or, in Timothy Leary fashion, chose to “turn on, tune in, drop out” from them. The current revolution is much different—and far more dangerous—for at least three reasons. The current Left has no intention of “dropping out.” Why would it?  It now controls the very institutions of America that it once mocked and attacked—corporate boardrooms, Wall Street, state and local prosecuting attorneys, most big-city governments, the media, the Pentagon, network and most of cable news, professional sports, Hollywood, music, television, K-12 education, and academia. In other words, the greatest levers of influence and power—money, education, entertainment, government, the news, and popular culture—are in the hands of the Left. They have transformed legitimate debate over gay marriage into a hate crime. Transgenderism went from a modern manifestation of ancient transvestism or gender dysphoria to a veritable litmus test of whether one was good or evil.

(H/T PC) Smith: Joe Biden Is Curiously Serving Two Masters, Which Has Me Wondering

Here is something you won’t hear anywhere else. It is clear that Joe Biden is being ratted out in the classified document scandal, but by whom? Tucker Carlson is convinced it is a cabal of Democratic Party members who want a new presidential nominee for 2024. Tucker, I love ya, but I don’t think so. I believe foreign actors and their interests  may be involved. Joe Biden has been in politics for 50 years. He’s never had a real job. The only core conviction he has is the self-aggrandizement that comes from being able to have people suck up to him due to the power and vast resources at his disposal. He’s dumber than a doorknob. Yet, with 50 years of experience, he is on automatic pilot when it comes to self-preservation. He simply does what he is told and reads his teleprompter without really knowing what he is reading. Thus, I don’t buy Tucker’s analysis because the “powers that be” controlling him already have a pretty good gig. Why would they want to dump him? […]  Why did President Biden withdraw one million barrels of oil out of the Strategic Petroleum  Reserve to “sell” to Sinopec, a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden? More importantly, why are we giving $100 billion dollars to Ukraine?

Brown: Biden’s Border Crisis Comes Into Focus Up North

Between October 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, the U.S. Border Patrol’s Swanton sector along the U.S.-Canada border recorded a 743 percent increase in apprehensions and encounters of illegal border crossings compared to the same timeframe in 2021, another result of President Joe Biden’s open-border policies that have already brought chaos to the U.S.-Mexico border. According to CBP, “[c]ombined apprehensions and encounters in Fiscal Year 2023 have already surpassed that of Fiscal Year 2022 and recent trends represent a sustained increase in illegal border crossings as we head into the harshest winter months.” That is, it’s not just “irregular migration,” as the Biden administration has tried to portray the crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border. It’s a “sustained increase” brought about by Biden’s lax border policies. […]  While the U.S.-Canada border is vastly different from the U.S.-Mexico border, CBP warns that attempting to illegally enter the U.S. from Canada is not much safer:

Bartee: ‘Breakfast Club’ Race Hustler: Confiscate 25% of U.S. Economy, Redistribute to Blacks

A racist in a tablecloth suit named Dr. Umar Johnson decreed on The Breakfast Club radio show recently that the American government must carve out a full quarter of all economic activity — in perpetuity. “We get a 25% cut… every time America makes a dollar.” That would amount to approximately six trillion dollars annually. He makes sure to emphasize this is a forever arrangement. Specifically, he wants cash for the “psychological damages” wrought by slavery. Nearly everything, apparently, counts as “psychological damage” to Dr. Johnson. “When you see a black man take the life of another black man, that’s psychological damage [caused by white supremacy],” he explains.

(H/T DG) Reilly: BLM’s Bloody Bill Comes Due

Less than a decade back, Black Lives Matter arrived on the national scene with a two-part message: A near-genocidal campaign is being waged against black Americans, and virtually all contemporary problems in the black community are the fault of white people. This is no exaggeration. BLM spokesman Cherno Biko appeared on prime-time Fox News to argue that a totally innocent, presumably unarmed black person is “murdered” (his words) roughly once per day. Ben Crump, perhaps the nation’s most prominent attorney, published a best-selling 2019 book actually titled Open Season: Legalized Genocide of Colored People. At one point, as I noted in my own book Taboo, the Black Lives Matter website called for “re-payment to Blacks of all wealth ever extracted from a majority-Black community” by means of “racism, slavery, food apartheid, housing discrimination . . . and capitalism.” And so forth. Now, the receipts for the effect of this movement are in. And what they show is the remarkably complete failure of a Narrative. As crime-data resources like Disaster Center and the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program make clear, murders in the United States increased from a low of 14,164 in 2014 — the year Black Lives Matter truly kicked off — to at least 22,900 in 2021, just seven years later. This surge can be directly tied to the BLM-linked “Ferguson Effect” and “Floyd Effect.” In 2021, University of Massachusetts researcher Travis Campbell found that cities that experienced Black Lives Matter protests and riots — and surely often attempted to accommodate the demands of the marchers — did see some decrease in police homicides . . . but also experienced “a huge overall increase in murders.” The resulting murder surge was at least 10 percent overall, “equaling 1,000 to 6,000 additional murders” when expanded to the nationwide level.

Showalter: Biden Family Values: They like to live large

Joe Biden likes to advertise himself as ordinary ‘Scranton Joe’ who’s a family man and “devout” Catholic to the public. A look at news rolling out about Biden’s extended family in the wake of recent scandals suggests a different story. Far from being Lunchbucket Joe, House Biden is more like Venezuela’s Maduro family, or Chavez family, or Cuba’s Castro oligarchs. Cut to the chase and throw in Beijing’s princelings or Russia’s oligarchs, who frequently make cameo appearances. Not surprisingly, most claim to have a soft spot for “the common man.” Some photos of “the life” can be viewed herehereherehere, and here.

Some headlines to give you the flavor: . . . […]  Sound like the Bidens? All we have to do is look at the latest story from the Daily Mail about how Joe used his “pull” to get his ne’er-do-well niece Caroline a fancy new job she’d never have otherwise gotten as a convicted criminal on probation for a $100,000 credit card theft. […]  How the hell she managed to avoid prison for that is as mysterious as how Hunter Biden got into Yale.

Shaheen: Would YOU accept less anesthetic during surgery to save the planet? Doctors say it could reduce world’s carbon footprint… by up to 0.1%

Researchers are asking doctors to use less anesthesia on their surgery patients in the name of climate change. Doctors from the Henry Ford Health in Detroit, Michigan, said it could significantly reduce the carbon footprint of hospitals in the US. Research suggests that inhaled anesthesia accounts for up to 0.1 percent of the world’s carbon emissions. Dr Mohamed Fayed, a senior anesthetist at the Henry Ford, said: ‘Global warming is affecting our daily life more and more, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has become crucial. ‘No matter how small each effect is, it will add up. […] Use of high levels of anesthesia does come with risks. While it is safe in nearly all cases, too much anesthesia can deprive cells of oxygen and cause stroke, brain injury, coma or even death. There are risks from not receiving enough anesthesia too, though. A person could always wake up during surgery, which can be painful and highly traumatic.

Toboroff: New York May Soon Require Covid Vax for All Schoolchildren

New York parents, it should come as no surprise that legislation is currently before the Assembly and in committee requiring the COVID “vaccine” to be forced onto all children in schools. The first hint this was in the works was during the Hochul / Zeldin debate prior to the November 2, gubernatorial election. Moderator Susan Arbetter said, “Will you follow the CDC’s recommendation to add COVID vaccines to children’s vaccine schedules?”  Hochul was vague. Arbetter pressed: “So would you mandate a COVID vaccine for children, yes or no?” Hochul responded, “It’s something that comes down the legislature anyhow. The legislature makes the determination and consultation with health experts for next year’s school year.” Welcome to 2023 and the legislature. On January 23,  Assembly Bill A2178  was introduced. The bill would . . .

Lehr: Sea Level is Stable Around the World

We have been studying climate change and potentially associated sea level changes resulting from melting ice and warming oceans for a half century. In the 1970s our primary concern was global cooling and an advancing new ice age. Many believe that increasing quantities of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere could result in rising levels of the sea in general. The record does not show this to be true. There is no evidence whatever to support impending sea-level-rise catastrophe or the unnecessary expenditure of state or federal tax monies to solve a problem that does not exist. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has updated its coastal sea level tide gauge data which continue to show no evidence of accelerating sea level rise.

Justice: Records Show Interior Dept. Officials Knew Climate Protesters Might Turn Violent But Didn’t Stop Them

Internal records made public by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show officials at the Department of the Interior downplayed the threat presented by left-wing climate protesters who, in October 2021, launched what could be called an insurrection by Democrats’ standards. On Oct. 14, 2021, a swarm of demonstrators with the group People vs. Fossil Fuels stormed the Department of the Interior’s D.C. headquarters to conclude five days of activism in the nation’s capital. Fifty-five protesters were arrested in the demonstrations that turned violent, and “multiple injuries were sustained by security personnel,” according to the Interior Department. One officer was hospitalized. […]  Despite the dramatic display of performative outrage by lawmakers such as former GOP Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, however, whose tears on television landed him a gig at CNN, Democrats remained silent on the attack at the Interior Department in the fall of 2021, just as they were when the capital city burned under the guise of social justice in 2020.

Lippincott: Steel Yourselves, Conservatives

The Democratic Party’s remarkable midterm election performance—arguably the best for a first-term president since FDR in 1934—despite Joe Biden’s declining popularity, economic headwinds, and growing social and political divisions, portends a dim future for the Republican Party. In the lead up to 2022, Democrats not only refused to moderate their support for unlimited abortion up to the moment of birth, transgender surgery for minors, critical race theory, criminal justice reform, and illegal immigration, they doubled-down. Voters rewarded them with additional governorships, four flipped state legislatures, an increased Senate majority, and minimal losses in the House. The Left has zero reason to take the foot off the gas. Elections, legitimate or not, have consequences. The most likely outcome of the 2024 election is that Democrats retake the House, keep the Senate, and retain the presidency, regardless of who they run or what the economy looks like. As Joe Biden and Jon Fetterman proved in 2020 and 2022, respectively, Democrats don’t need to actually campaign in order to win political office. Nor do they need to be able to string together a coherent sentence. In the wake of the Trump presidency, the Left has reached a new fever pitch of political intensity. The Left’s access to nearly unlimited money, total control over the media narrative, and an unparalleled national vote-harvesting operation make campaigning and candidate quality of only tertiary importance. A recession likely won’t change these dynamics either. The economy boomed under Trump and experienced severe dislocations and inflation under Biden. But Democrats won big in both 2020 and 2022. Taking the state of the economy as a useful metric for political prognostication is largely a thing of the past. Liberal voters’ religious commitment to abortion and anti-racism is infinitely more important to understanding their political habits than measuring their material self-interest. So, is it simply over? Should conservatives pack it in and go home? Jump off the nearest bridge? No to all three.  […]  The Right can prepare for this eventuality by laying the groundwork for a counterrevolutionary political movement now. Spiritual warfare against America’s leftist ruling class is a must. Communism is a Christian heresy. Atheistic liberalism is an offense against God. Christians should resist it on those grounds alone. Believers and their allies should take every opportunity to disobey, reject, and delegitimize the ruling class whenever and wherever they can.

Taer: Assistant Principal Asked School Staff To Help Pay Immigrant Student’s ‘Coyote’ Fees, Email Shows

Providence’s Mount Pleasant High School Assistant Principal Stefani Harvey sent an email Thursday night soliciting donations for “a student who came to America with ‘Coyote,’ which is a group that helps people,” according to the message.

We are trying to figure out who generated that and why. We do not have a student that is being human trafficked,” the school official, who did not identify themselves, told the DCNF.

Jewell: FDA To Remove Restriction On Blood Donations From Gay, Bisexual Men

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Friday that it will remove a restriction on gay and bisexual men donating blood, a segment of the population that faces a higher risk of HIV. According to draft guidelines announced by the FDA, the new policy would eliminate a requirement that gay and bisexual men abstain from sexual activity for three months before donating blood, the Associated Press reported. The proposed rule change would be a major shift in a decades-old policy set during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. Instead of requiring three months of abstinence for men who have sex with men, the FDA will make all potential donors fill out a personalized questionnaire that evaluates each person’s risks for HIV before they can donate blood.
