Brown: ‘America Is Under Attack’: Remembering 9/11 22 Years Later

September 11, 2001, began as a morning like any other crisp, early fall day in the Northeast United States. But by the time the sun set over New York, Washington, and Somerset County, Pennsylvania, the entire world had changed. After the dust settled, fires were extinguished, and all was counted, 2,977 innocent lives had been stolen by Al Qaeda terrorists. At 7:59 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11 scheduled from Boston Logan International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport takes off with 92 people on board. A few minutes later, United Airlines Flight 175 departs Boston Logan with 65 people on board at 8:14 a.m., also en route to Los Angeles. By 8:19 a.m., flight attendant Betty Ong on American 11 notifies her base that her flight has been hijacked: “The cockpit’s not answering; somebody’s been stabbed in business class—and I think there’s mace that we can’t breathe. I don’t know. I think we’re getting hijacked.”

Ong continues to inform American Airlines on the hijacking for the next 26 minutes while AA employees alert and update the FBI. A minute later at 8:20 a.m., American Airlines Flight 77 departs Virginia’s Dulles International Airport with a destination of Los Angeles and 64 people on board.

Federer: September 11th – Political Islam’s Long War on the West

Americans remember December 7th as “a date which will live in infamy” — the attack on Pearl Harbor. It was a date never to be forgotten. In a similar way, Islamists remember September 11th. It was a date never to be forgotten. While the majority of Muslims are moderate, Political Islam, or “Islamism,” is a globalist ideology with a long history of conquest, but three significant times its expansion was stopped on that date. The first time was SEPTEMBER 11, 1565. Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent dominated the Mediterranean, with intentions of not only invading Sicily, Sardinia, Majorca, and southern Spain, but Rome itself. The only thing standing in his way was the small rocky Island of Malta just south of Sicily, defended by the Knights of Malta. In March of 1565, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent sent Algerian Admiral Dragut to Malta with 200 ships and 40,000 Muslim soldiers, including 6,500 elite Janissary troops.

Dragut stated: “Unless you have smoked out this nest of vipers, you can do no good anywhere.”  Queen Elizabeth I of England is said to have remarked:. . . […] The second time Islamic expansion was stopped on that date was SEPTEMBER 11, 1683. Sultan Mehmed IV sent over 138,000 Muslim Ottoman Turks to surround Vienna, Austria, led by General Mustafa Pasha. For two months they starved 11,000 . . .

(H/T CFP) Cooke: Biden ‘pulled from 9/11 memorial’ over fears another gaffe could decimate re-election chances

The US President will not participate in any of the ceremonies taking place at 9/11 memorial sites in New York City, Virginia or Pennsylvania  Joe Biden is set to miss the 9/11 memorial service in New York this weekend, as the White House is said to be “limiting his public appearances” in order to avoid gaffes.

Peggy Grande, former long term adviser to Ronald Reagan, told GB News that the White House is taking a “basement strategy” approach – keeping him out of the public eye. […] Grande explained that the White House is trying to avoid a repeat of the Medal of Honour ceremony when the President walked out early instead of standing on stage. He left the ceremony early, leaving a war hero stranded on the stage.

NOTABLE QUOTES

Bruce Bawer contributor to Frontpage Magazine: Twenty-two years after 9/11, the freedom that our attackers hated is slipping away from us with terrifying speed. And though we didn’t know it at the time, it was on that now distant September morning that we started down the road to this sobering moment of crisis.

Kurt Schlichter opinion columnist for Townhall.com: Well, let me tell you commie bastards something. You get nothing. You don’t get respect. You don’t get obedience. You don’t get deference. All you get is us focusing our efforts on peacefully, and permanently, driving your sorry butts out of any position of power. Us vets will lead the way. We were part of the greatest institution of human freedom in human history, the United States military. Even you leftist jerks, with your corruption and greed and stupidity, are not powerful enough to totally ruin our military, much less our country. We’re going to take our institutions back. We’re going to rebuild our military. We’re going to clean house at our Department of Justice [sic] and ensure that there is one system of laws that applies equally to everybody. We’re going to have free speech, and we’re going to buy all the damn guns we want no matter how hard you sissies cry. I don’t regret serving my country. It was an honor. Moreover, I’m going to continue to do so, and so are the rest of us patriotic vets. Like I said, that oath we took doesn’t expire. Let me break it down for you half-stepping pinko punks. We’re going to toss you out like the trash you are. See you at the ballot box.

Mark Steyn: The Trump presidency was undone by Joe Biden’s signing pen about ten minutes after inauguration. But that wasn’t enough for the Uniparty. Like Oliver Cromwell, he has to be dug up and beheaded, over and over and over, and all his allies too, from Giuliani to that Florida grandmother – until you guys get the message. Why pretend that’s “normal” and meekly fall in line and move on to Nikki Haley? Even if you’re going to lose, you might as well take a stand with Trump against the “normalization” of a system determined to criminalize you. You can’t have “normal” politics in a country where one side gets endlessly indicted and the other never is (notwithstanding the latest fake-o headlines about the not-so-Special Counsel promising to throw the book at Hunter on gun charges). America is dying before your eyes. Why pretend that’s normal?

J.B. Shurk contributor to American Thinker: The ruling regime will continue plundering from the people until the people have finally had enough.  The people will finally have enough when they realize that the political “elites” do not have their best interests at heart.  For those people straddling that line today, consider this simple truth: no group of people actively working to depopulate the planet should be trusted with power of any kind.  When the ruling class cult says that overpopulation is humanity’s biggest threat, it isn’t referring to people being born on the other side of the world.  It is talking about you. It will deprive your home of fuels and electricity, sterilize your children, inject your body with poisons, unleash economic Armageddon, and organize any manner of cataclysms — all to put you and the people you love in an early grave.

Clayton J. Baker, M.D. contributor to Brownstone Institute: Masks are also extremely effective in exposing dissidents. Who dares to stand up against the state? There’s one, right over there. Shame on them. Shun them. Arrest them. That’s how masks really “work”, and that’s why the Public HealthTM types love them.

Stella Paul contributor to Brownstone Institute: Every American is a sovereign individual with inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, not a sack of meat to be treated as a profit opportunity. Informed consent must be revived from the grave if Americans are to have a fighting chance against powerful financial interests allied against them.

Andrea Widburg contributor to American Thinker: Guns are an integral part of liberty. A government that is hostile to liberty is also hostile to guns, believing that only the government should control the great equalizer. This was/is the M.O. in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, Communist Cuba, all of socialist Europe, etc. When only the government has guns, you live in a concentration camp, and that’s true no matter how nice a camp it seems.

Wendy Paterson posted on X: I want to make sure that you understand what is about to happen so you can prepare. Biden canceled all of the Alaska drilling on Federal land. At the same time he stopped allowing liquid natural gas from being transported by train. That leaves the only mode of transportation by trucking. About 2 months ago the largest trucking company went out of business: Yellow, one of the nation’s largest freight and trucking companies, announced it is shutting down, leading to one of the largest mass layoffs in recent history and potential shipping cost increases. The company is in bankruptcy just three years after getting a $700 million loan from taxpayers. So that is going to create a massive supply chain issue of liquid natural gas which means your utility bills as well as the price of gas is going to skyrocket. Biden used 300 million gallons of gas from our reserves to keep the gas prices artificially low. They can’t do that anymore. They have set us up in every way to purposely make gas prices and utility prices skyrocket so fill all of your gas cans, buy propane act NOW while you can still afford it.

Clarice Feldman contributor to American Thinker: It’s not just about cars. Every single thing in your house, including your food and drugs, and in your office place is dependent on fossil fuel. It is an ingredient in the goods we use, as well as the energy that manufactures them and gets them to market. It also enables all modern food production, from planting, to fertilizer, to harvesting, to getting to the grocery store. Without it, we revert to the pre-modern instantly. Yet Biden is slashing away at this fundamental, existential resource like a tyrant.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CANCEL THE SECOND AMENDMENT

Hazard: New Mexico’s public health emergency, suspension of gun rights condemned on the left and right

ew Mexico Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s decision to declare a public health emergency and suspend concealed carry gun rights is being condemned on both sides of the political aisle. “I support gun safety laws,” California Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu wrote on X, the platform previously called Twitter. “However, this order from the Governor of New Mexico violates the U.S. Constitution. No state in the union can suspend the federal Constitution. There is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution.” Late Saturday, a gun rights group sued Grisham in federal court, alleging her emergency order is unconstitutional. The National Association for Gun Rights sued on behalf of Albuquerque resident Foster Haines, asking the U.S. District Court in New Mexico to block implementation of the order. On Friday, Grisham . . .

BIDEN’S DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PERSECUTE YOUR OPPOSITION, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

Mark Levin: This is an ‘extremely political and radical’ judge

Judge Tanya Chutkan is ‘unqualified’ to preside over the U.S. government’s case against former President Donald Trump. Did you know that there is a CODE OF CONDUCT FOR UNITED STATES JUDGES?

Watch the 16 minute Levin monologue: https://www.foxnews.com/video/6336940745112

Levin: The Democrat Party’s fetish for the 14th Amendment is a vile attack on our elections directed at one man: Donald Trump

The modern Democrat Party has an unhealthy fetish for the 14th Amendment, one of the three post-Civil War constitutional amendments. Democrats are constantly and relentlessly trying to rewrite it to accommodate their political ends. A few months ago, Joe Biden and his party insisted that Section 4 of the 14th Amendment granted the president power to unilaterally increase the debt ceiling, which would destroy Congress’s sole power under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution to tax, spend, and borrow. Of course, Section 4 of the 14th Amendment does no such thing, and there is nothing in the history of the amendment that supports such an interpretation. Here’s the relevant language: . . . […] The same kind of fraudulent approach is now before us with respect to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. Here is the text that these constitutional saboteurs, in the name of the Constitution, are desperately and cravenly insisting prevents former President Donald Trump from effectively running for a second presidential term. […] You need not be an aging retired judge, washed-up former law professor, or NeverTrumper academician to notice that the word “president” cannot be found in this text. So, why would the amendment’s drafters, adopters, and ratifiers all exclude the word “president” from the text but include virtually every other form of officeholder, federal and state, elected and appointed, in the text?

BIDEN’S DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: PERSECUTE YOUR OPPOSITION, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’S FORMER EMPLOYEES, SUPPORTERS & WH STAFF

MacKinnon: Georgia’s Republican AG announces indictment of 61 leftists under the RICO statute used just weeks ago against Trump

In a controversial move, Democratic Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis charged former President Donald Trump last month under Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. It appears Willis, the proud daughter of a top Black Panther, may have unwittingly opened Pandora’s box as it pertains to the acceptability of lawfare in the state — to the detriment of her fellow leftists. Georgia’s Republican attorney general made clear Tuesday that the gloves are now off, indicting 61 radicals under the same statute. Now with the shoe on the other foot, leftists are decrying the RICO charges, calling them “anti-democratic,” reported the Associated Press.

THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES & THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Sundance: The Post 9/11 Weaponization of The U.S. Gov’t

Barack Obama and Eric Holder did not create a weaponized DOJ and FBI; the institutions were already weaponized by the Patriot Act.  What Obama and Holder did was take the preexisting system and retool it, so the weapons of government only targeted one side of the political continuum. This point is where many people understandably get confused. Elevator Speech: (1) The Patriot Act turned the intel surveillance radar from foreign searches for terrorists to domestic searches for terrorists. (2) Obama/Biden then redefined what is a “terrorist” to include their political opposition. In the era shortly after 9/11, the DC national security apparatus, instructed by Vice President Dick Cheney, was constructed to preserve continuity of government and simultaneously view all Americans as potential threats. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) were created specifically for this purpose. After 9/11/01, the electronic surveillance system, that was originally created to monitor threats from abroad, was retooled to monitor threats inside our country.  That is when all of our electronic ‘metadata’ came under federal surveillance. That inflection point, and the process that followed, was exactly what Edward Snowden tried to point out.

GLOBALISM (GREAT RESET/NEW WORLD ORDER) & TRANS HUMANISM (AI HUMANS 2.0) ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED

Shurk: Depopulation Fanatics Should Never Be Trusted with Government Power

A message from Captain Obvious: political “elites” with depopulation agendas have no interest in saving lives. Instead, they pursue policies that either outright kill people or shorten their lives and discourage them from reproducing. Sometimes members of the global ruling class whisper this uncomfortable truth out loud, as John Kerry did this summer when he euphemistically described the world’s population as “unsustainable.” Or as Prince Philip of the United Kingdom once admitted before his death: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.” Most of the time, however, the self-anointed globacracy speaks in coded language — dog whistles, if you will — by advocating for policies that purportedly deal with some “woke” issue but whose end effect is to spread infertility and death. Defending abortion up to the moment of a baby’s birth (and sometimes after) isn’t about women’s rights — it’s about reducing the number of babies. Rationing fuels necessary for heating homes and generating electricity isn’t about “saving the planet” — it’s about making it harder to survive on this planet. Forbidding the use of fertilizers that help farmers feed a hungry world isn’t about fighting “climate change” — it’s about inducing famine. Encouraging children to volunteer for castration isn’t about respecting their “authentic gender” — it’s about poisoning their family trees before those youngsters even reach puberty. Forcing people to take experimental “vaccines” with dangerous side effects isn’t about “saving lives” — it’s about reducing lifespans. These are the cold, hard facts. And once a person accepts them for what they are, a natural question arises: why should the people of planet Earth sit back and do nothing while their “leaders” quietly orchestrate their slaughter?

TYRANNY IN THE NAME OF CLIMATE DOOM MYTH: GLOBALIST POLITICIANS & BIG BUSINESS ACCUMULATE MORE  POWER & CONTROL

McCotter: The WEF and the Climate Cult: Colluding for a World-wide Welfare State

One should never underestimate the Left’s propensity for projecting its sins upon its victims; nor, when the Left does manage to admit the destructive effects of their regressive ideology, to proclaim these disastrous consequences as fundamental transformational and “liberation.” To avoid such a fraught misunderstanding, one must ever remember the Left perverts the purported rationale of every entity captured in their “long march” through the institutions.  To wit: The World Economic Forum (WEF). One would think an organization comprised of the uber rich global elitists would be assiduously focused on increasing wealth. The rationale would be their own greed; and the need to spread wealth to meet rising global expectations of material prosperity that, as history shows, when unmet lead to revolutions – revolutions which confiscate the wealth of the rich and often their lives. Yet, to spread material wealth is rarely the goal of the rich. Their goal is to amass wealth; then, having amassed it, to protect it from the masses. However, in a contradiction Karl Marx would appreciate, in spreading their wealth to increase the masses’ material prosperity, they will also be increasing the masses’ expectations. In an age of instantaneous global communication among the masses, these expectations will rapidly and exponentially rise. There is every reason to believe they will not be met; and revolutions and/or chaos will ensue as the masses demand their “equitable” share of prosperity. Thus, for the WEF, what to do if one doesn’t necessarily want to share their pile to spread the wealth and only exacerbate rising expectations among the masses that can’t be met; and, when unmet, spur nothing good for rich elitists? For the first time in human history, the goal is not to increase material prosperity but to cap and curtail it.

COVID-19 REDUX

Rudy: COVID booster warning from Florida surgeon general, who advises people not to get new vaccine

While speaking at a Thursday news conference for Gov. Ron DeSantis in Jacksonville, Florida, Dr. Joseph Ladapo, that state’s surgeon general, advised people to steer clear of the updated booster vaccine for COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved the new vaccine — which is reportedly designed to protect against the BA.2.86 omicron subvariant. “There’s a new vaccine that’s coming around the corner, a new mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, and there’s essentially no evidence for it,” Ladapo said during the news conference, according to local news outlets.

Baker, MD: The Dirty Secret About How Masks Really “Work”

It is difficult to believe that Public HealthTM is trying to force America to mask up again, but here we are. The question is, why? The dirty secret is this: Masks don’t work by controlling the virus. Masks work by controlling the people. If we’re talking about stopping the spread of the virus, masks simply don’t work.

But if we’re talking about stoking fear, instilling blind obedience to state authorities, sowing discord between citizens, and publicly “outing” skeptics and dissidents – in other words, creating an authoritarian, even totalitarian system of public health – then masks work very well indeed. By this late date, it has been established beyond honest scientific doubt that masking is ineffective at stopping the contraction and spread of COVID-19. This is true both at the microscopic level and at the population level. […] Masks are effective at instilling fear in people. […] Masks are effective as virtue signals of compliance, bolstering the submissive person’s ego. […] Masks are effective at humiliating people. […] Masks are also extremely effective in exposing dissidents.

Demasi PHD: EXCLUSIVE: Lead author of Cochrane mask review responds to Fauci’s dismissal of evidence

Former chief medical advisor to the US President Anthony Fauci, was questioned over the weekend by CNN reporter Michael Smerconish, about face masks being able to curb the spread of covid-19. “There’s no doubt that masks work,” said Fauci. “Different studies give different percentages of advantage of wearing it, but there’s no doubt that the weight of the studies … indicate the benefit of wearing masks,” he added. Smerconish brought up the 2023 Cochrane review which found no evidence that physical interventions like face masks could stop viral transmission in the community and cited my interview with lead author of the study Tom Jefferson who confirmed, “There is just no evidence that they [masks] make any difference. Full stop.” Fauci replied,“Yeah but there are other studies,” stressing that masks work on an individual basis. […] Professor Tom Jefferson, who says he is committed to updating the Cochrane review as new evidence emerges, has responded to Fauci’s comments. “So, Fauci is saying that masks work for individuals but not at a population level? That simply doesn’t make sense,” said Jefferson. “And he says there are ‘other studies’…but what studies?  He doesn’t name them . . .

Elkind: Democrat kills JD Vance’s anti-mask bill, says health officials should have ‘freedom to make those decisions’

Vance took to the Senate floor on Thursday to force consideration of his bill, the Freedom to Breathe Act, aimed at banning federal mask mandates in public schools, for domestic air travel and on public transit. He called for its passage via unanimous consent, a largely symbolic move. Just one senator’s objection is enough to foil a unanimous consent vote — in this case, Markey stood to oppose it. He called the bill a “red herring” and accused the GOP of caring for “gimmicks over people.” He broadly conceded the possibility of future mask mandates, and said Americans should once again defer to public health officials on the matter. […] Vance countered that the high number of people killed by COVID came despite active mask mandates and pointed out that his bill did not prevent individuals from wearing masks if they chose. […] It’s prompted at least one city — Huntington Beach, California — to preemptively ban mask and other COVID-19 mandates from being enforced on its residents.

PEACEFULLY & PATRIOTICALLY HAVE YOUR VOICES HEARD

Klar: Meet the Doctor Who’s Fighting the COVID Oppression Machine

An unassuming 72-year-old Maine physician named Meryl Nass has gripped the COVID-19 misinformation bull by its poisoned horns. Maine’s physician licensing board suspended her from practicing in a blatant push to silence her right to free speech, in a medical field in which Meryl holds special expertise. Meryl Nass has filed a sharp-fanged lawsuit to bring this overreaching regulatory body to account. The lengths to which Maine’s licensing board has gone to silence this tiger woman reveals the complete folly of the government-controlled COVID-19 narrative. Who Is Doctor Nass? Meryl Nass began her MIT education while still a teenager. She is an acknowledged medical expert on man-made epidemics, including her seminal work in Rhodesia’s 1978 anthrax outbreak, which she proved was due to biological warfare in 1992. Dr. Nass cares deeply about her patients, reflected in her humble intensity, precise analysis, prolific writing, and passionate determination to speak truth to farcical regulators who overstep their authority. Maine’s Board of Licensure in Medicine (BOLIM) organized its campaign to silence Dr. Nass early. After all, she had raised doubts about COVID-19 origins, the efficacy of masks, and the safety of vaccines. She had also dared prescribe anti-viral drugs that the government had discouraged without evidence of harm, before there were official therapies (vaccines) available. It was not just regular Joes on social media who were not permitted to question the official narrative; it was doctors with advanced knowledge and expertise in these very fields. […] Meryl Nass and her attorneys are on the front lines of an information battle about a disease that is simultaneously a constitutional fracas about our rights to even have a discussion about what treatments a doctor can provide to a patient, absent government interference. Future health care, the doctor-patient relationship, and citizens’ rights hang in the balance.

Nass MD: The WHO’s Proposed Treaty Will Increase Man-Made Pandemics

This report is designed to help readers think about some big topics: how to really prevent pandemics and biological warfare, how to assess proposals by the WHO and its members for responding to pandemics, and whether we can rely on our health officials to navigate these areas in ways that make sense and will help their populations. We start with a history of biological arms control and rapidly move to the COVID pandemic, eventually arriving at plans to protect the future. The people of the world don’t want them used on us—for they are cheap ways to kill and maim large numbers of people quickly and indiscriminately. […] Gain-of-function research is a euphemism for biological warfare research aka germ warfare research. It is so risky that funding it was banned by the US government (but only for SARS coronaviruses and avian flu viruses) in 2014 after a public outcry from hundreds of scientists. Then in 2017 Drs. Tony Fauci and Francis Collins lifted the moratorium, with no real safeguards in place. Fauci and Collins even had the temerity to publish their opinion that the risk from this gain-of-function research was ‘worth it.’ What does gain-of-function actually mean? It means that scientists . . . […] COVID Vaccines: The Chicken or the Egg? The health authorities could have just been ignorant—that could possibly explain the first few months of the COVID vaccines’ rollout. But once they figured out, and even announced in August 2021 that the vaccines did not prevent catching COVID or transmitting it, why did our health authorities then mandate COVID vaccines for 100 million mostly low-risk Americans who were at greater risk from vaccine side effects than from COVID? And why did they double down on mandates as time went on and newer variants were less and less virulent? And that wasn’t all the federal authorities did. […] Once you understand these basic facts, you realize that perhaps the vaccines were not made for the pandemic, and instead the pandemic was made to roll out the vaccines. While we cannot be certain, we should at least be suspicious. And the fact that the US contracted for 10 doses per person (review purchases here, here, here, here and here) and so did the European Union (here and here) and Canada, it should make us even more suspicious. There is no medical justification for agreeing to purchase so many doses of vaccines at a time when the virus was rapidly mutating, the vaccines’ ability to prevent infection and transmission was questionable and its safety was suspect or worse.

(The Uni-Party speaks) Mittlestadt: Mixed message? Bush foundation chief who organized unity letter previously leaked Steele dossier

The executive director of the George W. Bush Institute, who organized a letter from presidential libraries calling for national unity, previously leaked the now-debunked Steele dossier to reporters during height of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. David Kramer, who worked in the State Department under President George W. Bush and was an associate of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pushed for the foundations and centers of former presidents to sign a letter about unifying the country. However, in 2016 Kramer provided the Steele dossier to BuzzFeed, which published it without corroborating its allegations that then-President-elect Donald Trump was a puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Thursday, a letter was released by the George W. Bush Institute about unifying around democracy, saying that: “Debate and disagreement are central features in a healthy democracy. Civility and respect in political discourse, whether in an election year or otherwise, are essential.” […] Kramer spearheaded the effort for the letter, saying that Bush “did see and signed off on this statement,” according to The Guardian. Kramer told The Washington Post that the letter wasn’t intended to single out any campaign or person but that its purpose is to focus on the U.S.’s progress and the work still left to be done. The release of the letter comes amid Trump facing four indictments, . . .

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Chang: Time to Declare a ‘People’s War’ on the CCP: All of China Is One Military Machine

  • Washington should be trying to end the rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It is time to declare a “people’s war” against the CCP. We are in an us-or-them fight.
  • The Party certainly thinks that way. In May 2019, People’s Daily, the CCP’s self-described “mouthpiece”… declared a “people’s war” against the United States.
  • “A people’s war is a total war, and its strategy and tactics require the overall mobilization of political, economic, cultural, diplomatic, military, and other power resources, the integrated use of multiple forms of struggle and combat methods.” — PLA Daily, an official news website of the Communist Party’s People’s Liberation Army, April 1, 2023.
  • Although it denies doing so, China’s regime is conducting “unrestricted warfare” against America.
  • Unrestricted warfare means total war. The regime’s deliberate spread of COVID-19 and support for the Chinese fentanyl gangs, for example, should be viewed in that light.
  • Most Americans have chosen not to see the Chinese regime’s hatred of America.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF FOREIGN POLICY

Schwab: Tactless Biden says ‘Good Evening, Vietnam!’ while in Hanoi – as he mistakes Robin Williams’ anti-war movie for a SONG – during ANOTHER bizarre press conference where he rants about ‘Indians’ and John Wayne

A sleepy Joe Biden risked upsetting his Vietnamese hosts with quotes from the Robin Williams movie Good Morning Vietnam – which he seemed to think was a song. The 80-year-old president arrived in the country after two days at the G20 summit in India and admitted he was struggling to tell if it was day or night. ‘Good evening, everyone,’ he told a press conference. ‘It’s already evening, isn’t it? It’s around the world in five days – it’s interesting. ‘One of my coworkers said, “Remember the famous song “Good Morning Vietnam”?” Well, good evening, Vietnam’.” In what was supposed to be a show of stamina – Biden is circumnavigating the globe in five days – he ended the 26-minute event by saying, ‘I’m going to go to bed.’

Schlichter: How the Hell Do You Think Us Veterans Feel Right Now?

Was I a sucker? I sure don’t want to feel like a sap, but the thought that I may be one arises when I watch this endless parade of patriots – including our last conscious president – being prosecuted for their political beliefs and treated differently under a two-tier justice system as the garbage institutions attempt to quash free speech, and as the alleged president, a desiccated, corrupt, old pervert, generally drives our country into the ground. I defended this? I did 27 years in our military. I proudly swore to defend our Constitution. Now, I only washed trucks – I wasn’t a war hero like Pete Buttigieg or Da Nang Dick Blumenthal, and I certainly wasn’t killed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and also (I think) Maui like Joe Biden’s non-coke-addled son was, but I showed up. I dressed like a tree, marched around, went where they sent me, and did my job. Don’t get me wrong – it was not all bad. It was fun some of the time, and I got to do a lot of interesting things other people didn’t get to. I got a little money – very little – and I’ve always been intensely grateful for the chance to be an American soldier. And I took it seriously. That oath I took? It never expires. And now I just need to know if I was a sucker for believing all that Constitution and freedom stuff when I raised my right hand. I know a lot of fellow vets who are asking the same question. I ask because this banana republic isn’t the country I was thinking I was signing up to defend when I pinned on my private first class insignia and entered the Army on December 1, 1987, and got handed a ticket out to Lawton, Oklahoma, for basic training at Fort Sill. […] . . . if some sergeant first class pushed that piece of paper and a pen across the desk to me today, I don’t think I would sign it like I did back in 1987. I don’t think I’ve changed. I think I still love the America I grew up in. Hey, if you are a young guy or gal who signs on the line that is dotted now, awesome. I got your back. But if you don’t, I’m not going to try to talk you into it. The sad fact is that the America I grew up in is, if not dead, in a coma.

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA

Feldman: Energy prices in America are going to get much worse than we’ve ever imagined

Joe Biden promised during his basement campaign for the presidency that he was going to “end fossil fuel”: The former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate made the comment Friday after a New Hampshire environmental activist challenged him for accepting donations from the co-founder of liquified natural gas firm. Biden denied the donor’s association to the fossil fuel industry before calling the young woman “kiddo” and taking her hand. He said, “I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you. I guarantee you. We’re going to end fossil fuel.” Many assumed that Biden was just pandering to the base. He was not. His executive orders have aggressively attacked fossil fuel (although not in China). As part of these orders, Biden immediately placed a moratorium on new oil and gas leases on federal lands. Again, the Founders never intended to give the executive this much power over every aspect of American life. After all, fossil fuel underlies modern America. It’s not just about cars. Every single thing in your house, including your food and drugs, and in your office place is dependent on fossil fuel. It is an ingredient in the goods we use, as well as the energy that manufactures them and gets them to market. It also enables all modern food production, from planting, to fertilizer, to harvesting, to getting to the grocery store. Without it, we revert to the pre-modern instantly. Yet Biden is slashing away at this fundamental, existential resource like a tyrant. Last week, Biden increased his attack on fossil fuel: . . .

Hazard: Biden withdraws Energy Department nominee who was blocked by Sen. Manchin over gas stove rules

The nominee, Jeff Marootian, was picked to head the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The nomination was officially revoked Thursday, according to the Washington Examiner. Marootian currently serves as a senior adviser for the office under Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. His nomination was controversial due to his reported support of the DOE’s new appliance efficiency standards that cracked down on household appliances, including gas stoves.

Shaw: Abbott promises ‘even more buses’ if Biden admin pushes reported plan to keep migrants in Texas

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Thursday promised he would send “even more buses” of migrants to cities, including Washington, D.C., if the Biden administration moved forward with a reported plan to keep migrants in Texas — just as the administration is facing pressure from left-wing officials in cities like New York City over migrant traffic. “Biden considers forcing migrant families to remain in Texas. This scam was tried years ago & was shot down by a judge,” Abbott said on X, formerly known as Twitter. “We will send Biden the same swift justice.” “And, we will add even more buses of migrants to Washington D.C.,” he said.

EJ ANTONI: Biden Loves Vacations. His Economic Policies Mean Most Americans Can’t Afford One

The middle class is demonstrably worse off under President Joe Biden, but that hasn’t stopped him from spending 40 percent of his presidency on vacation. Many Americans would love such a lax job schedule, but they’re too busy working a second job to make ends meet. They cannot afford one day of vacation, let alone 382 like Mr. Biden. On the few days Mr. Biden has actually been working, he has instituted policies that caused the middle class’s financial plight. Here are just a few examples. Bidenomics is best defined by the government spending, borrowing, and printing too much money. That has caused inflation, which has eroded the value of people’s earnings. Real earnings (i.e., inflation-adjusted) have fallen about 5 percent under Mr. Biden.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: CHILDREN ARE THE TARGET OF THE DARKNESS AFFECTING OUR NATION

Murray: 6-year-old boy suspended and labeled ‘potentially dangerous’ for playing cops and robbers during recess

. . . while we’re all being distracted by the madness coming from New Mexico, a governor going full Vladimir Lenin to infringe upon the right of the people to bear arms, a red state in the Deep South is also waging a war against an armed populace, albeit with a different and more strategic approach. Arguably, Alabama’s method is scarier, and more dangerous because of its subtlety; unlike Lujan Grisham’s overt move to wrest the guns from the hands of the citizenry, this one avoids tripping the “tyrant” alarm, and hoists a mea culpa white flag instead of a red flag, chalking the imminent danger up to an honest mistake, and promoting a false sense of security. From a report by Epoch Times two days ago: According to the letter, on Sept. 1, 2023, two boys were playing ‘cops and robbers’ during recess at Bagley Elementary School. ‘During the course of their play, the children reportedly extended their index fingers and thumbs and said ‘bang-bang’ at each other,’ the letter reads. The child, identified as J.B., was suspended and accused of committing a Class III infraction. This is the district’s most serious infraction. According to the Jefferson County School District’s Student Parent Handbook, Class III infractions include possession of guns or explosives, sexual battery, battery of a school district employee, and robbery, among others. The boy would only be allowed back in school after a hearing with his parents and the district. Of the incident, the child’s father said:

ADI Staff Reporter: Outrage Grows As UArizona Nursing Class Lecture On Gender Identity Talk For 3-Year-Old Goes Viral

Senate Republicans say the curriculum aims to “cater to the radical left agenda, and to steal the innocence of young children through the next generation of medical professionals.” Senate Republicans say they have reached out to the University of Arizona (UArizona), and “it’s our understanding an image shared by a whistleblower and posted to social media this week depicting a lesson plan on “asking pediatric patients about gender identity” is in fact from inside a classroom at UArizona Nursing School. The image reveals nursing students are being taught to start asking patients as young as three years of age if they “feel like a girl on the inside, feel like a boy on the inside, neither, or both.” […] Senator Janae Shamp (R-29), Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Health & Human Services: “This is completely groomer garbage that strives to confuse our kids in an effort to cater to the evil that is being accepted by today’s society.” […] Arizona Women of Action called on conservatives to contact university officials in a tweet: @uarizona, this is disgraceful.

Halff: Oklahoma elementary school faces huge backlash after hiring drag queen ‘Shantel Mandalay’ as principal – with state superintendent Ryan Walters slamming move as ‘liberal insanity’

Ryan Walters, superintendent of the State of Oklahoma, has called for the immediate termination of the drag queen who goes by the name ‘Shantel Mandalay’ and reads story books to children at local libraries while in costume. Walters, a vocal opponent of the move, slammed the hiring decision by Western Heights School District, and told Fox News Digital: ‘It’s outrageous to have a drag queen running a school, you know, here in Oklahoma that doesn’t line up with Oklahoma values.’ He cited parental concerns about what he called ‘woke left-wing indoctrination’ and ‘gender theory’ in schools. […] The drag queen in question, Dr. Shane Murnan, 52, who was named principal of John Glenn Elementary School in June, has a controversial past, with child pornography charges nearly 20 years ago that were later dropped. The judge dismissed the charges during the preliminary hearing due to a lack of probable cause as it could not be proven the images depicted minors, according to Fox25. […] According to Murnan’s bio, he has an ‘impressive array of titles,’ including Miss Gay Oklahoma America and Miss Gay Oklahoma USA.

PAXTON IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

Imani: Targeting Ken Paxton: Is Washington’s hand shaping Texas’s political landscape?

Texas, known for its deep-rooted conservatism and unwavering Republican support, has become the epicenter of a political drama that could reshape its political identity. Recent developments suggest that influential forces within Washington are actively working to turn Texas’s traditionally “red state” into a “blue state” that leans towards the Democratic Party. At the heart of this controversy stands Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General and a close ally of former President Donald Trump. Let’s attempt to delve into the intricate web of players involved in this unfolding drama. Facing false and fabricated impeachment charges of securities fraud and abuse of office, Paxton has garnered national attention for his legal challenges to the 2020 presidential election results. He also had been investigating the influence of Zuckerbucks in Texas’s elections. His steadfast support for Trump and conservative values has made him a prominent figure in national politics. […] The unfolding political drama in Texas, marked by allegations of Washington’s interference and conspiracy, raises profound questions about the state’s political integrity. The ultimate question remains: How deep is this carefully orchestrated effort to tip the scales in favor of the Democrat party, turning Texas from red to blue? Only time will tell, but the implications of this high-stakes drama reach far beyond the borders of the Lone Star State, impacting the national political landscape as well. The loss of Texas has the potential to change the political shape and future of the country like no other event.

Blankley: Impeachment Bombshell: Key witness in Texas trial says he had no evidence of Paxton crime

On the third day of the impeachment trial of suspended Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a former deputy attorney general who was fired for insubordination, and who later sued claiming wrongful termination, said he and other former staffers had no evidence to support their claim that Paxton allegedly committed a crime. The charges levied in the 20 articles of impeachment brought by the House General Investigating Committee are based on unsworn statements provided by three witnesses who have so far testified in the impeachment trial, among others. […] On Thursday, one of the fired staffers, former deputy attorney general for legal counsel Ryan Vassar, testified that he and other staffers had no evidence to support the complaint they filed with the FBI, which is the basis for the impeachment articles. The admission was made during cross examination by Mitch Little, a partner with Scheef & Stone LLP, one of Paxton’s defense attorneys.

Frost: The Swamp Is Trying to Cancel Nearly 4.3 Million Votes

Well, the swamp isn’t confined to the nation’s capital. Now, it’s reared its ugly head in deep-red Texas. While the state has the reputation of being a bastion of conservatism—the state hasn’t awarded its electoral college votes to a Democrat since Jimmy Carter’s election in 1976, no Democrat has won statewide office since 1990, and Republicans have controlled both chambers of the state legislature since 2003—popular conservative policies have been thwarted for years. The mind-boggling reality is that it’s not Democrats who are behind these policy failures, it’s Republicans. Governor Greg Abbott is no Ron DeSantis, but the real problem is the Texas House of Representatives, where Republicans have empowered Democrats by allowing them to influence the selection of the speaker, who in turn has appointed several Democrats to chair powerful legislative committees controlling which bills get voted on. […] Now, the speaker and his allies—both Republicans and Democrats—are attempting to remove Attorney General Ken Paxton from office through the impeachment process, accusing him of abusing the powers of his office to benefit a wealthy campaign donor and wrongfully terminating subordinates who questioned his actions. […] Paxton’s alleged crimes aren’t the real reason why the Austin political establishment is trying to remove him from office, though. His real crime is refusing the play the game favored by most politicians—he follows through on what he says he believes, making those who don’t look bad. […]

Paxton was reelected last year by a margin of 9.8%, fending off three challengers in the primary, including George P. Bush—the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and then-commissioner of the Texas General Land Office—whom he defeated by 35.9% in a runoff election. During the campaign, Paxton’s challengers repeatedly reminded voters about the allegations against him and argued he lacked the integrity to hold the office.

How’s this crumpet to accompany the morning tea? Under the rubric “insanity” a friend just wrote with the news that the Department of Education has opened a civil rights investigation into New College of Florida. Why? Have they excluded black students from the tennis team? Have they made Mexican students sleep in the parking lot? Nothing so minor. No, this is serious. Put a pat of butter on that crumpet and listen: the former director of “DEI” (“diversity, equity, inclusion” for the innocents among my readers) has revealed that Chris Rufo, a trustee of New College, “mocked and misgendered” this creature after she (or so I am guessing) complained. Serious stuff. Can a dawn raid from the Stasi (aka, the FBI) be far behind?

Parnaby: REVEALED: The ten most dangerous cities in the US ranked – and the worst will surprise you

Security Gauge ranked the top 100 most crime-ridden places to live out of every town in the United States with at least 25,000 residents or more. They collated data on violent crimes – homicide, rape, armed robbery and aggravated assault – in each town from from all 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the US. The stats are contextualized per 1,000 people. 1. Bessemer, Alabama: Bessemer topped the 2023 rankings with 33.18 violent crimes per 1,000 population. Residents of America’s most volatile town have a one in 30 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime, according to Security Gauge. With a population size of around 27,000, Bessemer’s crime rate is much higher than other towns with a similar demographic.

The big picture: The ruling ends the yearslong effort by abortion and human rights advocates nationwide and in individual states to decriminalize or legalize abortion.

  • Mexico City became the first in 2007 when it legalized abortion up to 12 weeks. Eleven other states followed with their own rules expanding access.
  • With Wednesday’s decision, the remaining 20 states will have to revise their criminal codes and Congress will have to change the federal code so that no one can be prosecuted for having an abortion.
