Dr. Oliver Tearle: George Orwell author of Nineteen Eighty-Four, describes a picture of undistilled power, control, and oppression when he wrote: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — for ever.”

Abraham Lincoln 16th president of the united state in a speech said: “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

Brandon Morse contributor to RedState.com: . . . to Putin’s point, this abuse of America’s systems has removed the United States as any sort of moral authority for the political process. As it stands, American politicians are happy to be as underhanded and corrupt as they need to be in order to maintain power, making them not so different from the tyrannical dictators and authoritarians we denounce. Morally speaking, the only thing that separates Putin’s regime from the Democrat Party is a connection to Jeffrey Epstein…as far as we know.

J. Robert Smith contributor to American Thinker: Rumors about sparking a war with Russia aren’t centered on McCaul and other petting zoo Republicans, however. Democrats control the power – not just in D.C. but throughout major institutions, public and private. In terms of power, they’re close to their zenith. They don’t intend to forfeit that power without a brawl, someway, somehow. A conventional war with Russia would prove devastating enough. The possibility of accidental or deliberate escalation to nuclear war means cataclysm. Incredibly, among Democrats, RINOs, neocons, and the D.C. establishment, a belief is held that limited nuclear war with Russia could be won.

Silvio Canto, Jr. contributor to American Thinker: Once upon a time, it was so much fun being a sanctuary city. It made you popular with immigration activists and the self-declared “enlightened” class. Suddenly, sanctuary cities are about dealing with migrants who accepted your invitation. As someone said on the TV, it’s like inviting a bunch of people for dinner and then realizing that you can’t pay the bill.


Zeljko: ‘LA vs Hate’ Runs An Orwellian Snitch Line That’s Funded By Biden, Big Business, And You

Authorities in Los Angeles County are operating an ideologically charged tip line that encourages citizens to report one another to the government for non-criminal “hate incidents.” The project, called “LA vs Hate,” was founded in 2020 and is backed by a handful of corporate sponsors.

LA vs Hate describes itself as a “community-centered creative campaign to encourage and support all residents of Los Angeles County to unite against, report, and resist hate.” The program relies on anonymous reporting online or through a tip line, 211 LA, and is not affiliated with law enforcement.

The organization operates under the authority of the County of Los Angeles Commission on Human Relations and enjoys backing from Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield of California, and other nonprofits and corporate organizations. It also receives financial support from the American Rescue Plan and local governmental departments. Despite being central to its mission, the term “hate” is not clearly defined anywhere on the group’s website. Nevertheless, its materials are scattered with ideological indicators. […] Asked by The Federalist whether disagreement with trans ideology and the Black Lives Matter movement — both of which are featured approvingly on the project’s website — would constitute “hate,” the group declined to respond.

Greenfield: The Politicization of Pension Funds Now Threatens the First Amendment

A New York City government official is abusing pension fund control to sue opposition media. Every day the Left keeps showing off how the total weaponization of everything, especially government, works. The massive municipal unions that the Left created aren’t just a massive volunteer and cash corps for leftist candidates, but their pension funds (usually running to insolvency) are leverage for forcing corporate compliance. The Left defines its politics as the ideal for every profession and venue, everything from public health to corporate responsibility, which quickly became accusing oil and gas companies of ‘fraud’ for not bowing to their cult of climate change. Anyone not paying money to the climate cult is carrying heavy undisclosed ‘risk’. But the combination of government pension funds and the Left’s war on speech just went nuclear.

Hippolito: Techno Tyranny

Enforcing woke compliance. One of the Bible’s most mysterious references concerns something called the “mark of the beast,” which a shadowy, satanic figure called the “Antichrist” would mandate. This figure would demand “all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark…. (Revelation 13:16-17)” Whatever those verses might mean, one thing is clear: Political events and technology are converging to make such a frightening device more than possible. Governments and financial institutions already are using digital technology to restrict the freedom of those who refuse to comply with autocratic directives or increasingly prevalent “woke” ideology.

Thunder: You Should Be Very Worried About the Digital Services Act

Article 11 of The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, which replicates a part of Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, protects the right of European citizens to “hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers,” and affirms that “the freedom and pluralism of the media shall be respected.” Sadly, the fate of freedom of expression in Europe now very much hangs in the balance, as the European Union has just enacted a law that empowers the Commission to significantly restrict the ability of citizens to use digital platforms to engage in robust and sincere democratic discourse. Under the recently enacted Digital Services Act, the European Commission may apply significant pressures upon digital platforms to curb “hate speech,” “disinformation,” and threats to “civic discourse,” all of which constitute notoriously vague and slippery categories, categories that have historically been co-opted to reinforce the narrative of the ruling class. By giving the European Commission broad discretionary powers to oversee Big Tech content moderation policies, this piece of legislation holds freedom of speech hostage to the ideological proclivities of unelected European officials and their armies of “trusted flaggers.” The stated purpose of the Digital Services Act (DSA) that has just come into force in Europe is to ensure greater “harmonization” of the conditions affecting the provision of “intermediary” digital services, in particular online platforms that host content shared by their customers. […] At a superficial glance, the Digital Services Act (DSA) might look rather innocuous. […] But if you start to dig into the Act, you very soon discover that it is poisonous for free speech and is not in the spirit of Article 11 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, which guarantees citizens the “freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.” Below, I detail certain aspects of the Act that, taken together, pose an unprecedented threat to freedom of speech in Europe:

Boyd: ‘Highly Credible’ Whistleblower: CIA Offered Six Analysts Hush Money To Shut Them Up About Covid Lab Leak

The CIA offered hush money to six CIA analysts who concluded that Covid-19 originated from a lab in Wuhan, China, a “multi-decade, senior-level, current” CIA officer alleged to Congress. The news of the suspected payoff broke in two letters penned by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to CIA Director William J. Burns and former CIA Chief Operating Officer Andrew Makridis.

Revolver.news: Everything we’ve been told about JFK’s assassination is falling apart…

For years, theories have swirled—some say it was an inside job by the US government who wanted to take out JFK because he was aiming to dismantle the Deep State, while others cling to the narrative of a lone gunman on a grassy knoll. However, the entire framework we’ve been fed about JFK’s murder is falling apart, especially the so-called “magic bullet” theory (more on this below). For 60 years, this explanation—courtesy of the Warren Commission and the CIA—has been force-fed to us as gospel. Now, even hardcore defenders like the New York Times have to admit it’s a sham, especially in light of new, startling revelations from JFK’s own Secret Service man, Paul Landis. The narrative is shifting, folks, and it’s getting downright impossible for the establishment to sweep it under the rug. The New York Times: . . . […] Critics are questioning the timing of this revelation by Mr. Landis, asking why he remained silent for 66 years and waited until his late 80s to come forward. On the other hand, some argue that fear probably kept him quiet; now, in his golden years, he’s finally prepared to reveal what actually went down that day. The New York Times piece continues: . . .

Wauck: Ukrainian Terror Coming To The West?

Both Alexander Mercouris and Moon of Alabama picked up on The Economist’s interview with Zelensky yesterday. Both took Zelensky’s words to be a direct threat that, if tangible support—meaning, weapons and money—for Ukraine fades, Ukrainians living in the West might retaliate with a terror campaign of revenge against the West. There are many, many millions of Ukrainians, both in Europe and in North America, and it only takes a relatively small number of persons to launch such a campaign. As should be well known by now, Ukrainian nationalists have a long history of terroristic style attacks, ranging all the way up to serious attempts at genocide. […] Zelensky goes on to threaten, in rather unthankful fashion, those countries which have delivered aid to Ukraine but may want to cut their losses:

Walker: ‘Huge Catastrophe’: JD Vance Says US’ ‘Blank Check’ Spending Focus On Ukraine Is ‘Massive Strategic Victory’ For China

Republican Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance broke down why continuing to fund Ukraine’s war effort is not in America’s best interest on Tuesday’s edition of “The Ingraham Angle.” Vance scoffed at the notion that America should continue to send Ukraine resources to guarantee their “success” in their conflict against Russia.

“The president refuses to define success and refuses to actually tell us how much money we have to spend and how much time we have to spend to get to that success. This is a classic military quagmire. This is what we’ve been told for generations that we have to avoid — a blank check that is unlimited, that sends money out the door without any obvious benefit to our national interest,” he said. “Why don’t we at the very least demand to know what that money’s going to buy and how it gets us closer to victory?” […] “You hear this slogan again and again, ‘It’s not just the right thing to do, but it’s in our own interest.’ But they never define how it’s in our own interests. And here’s what this war’s costing us: potentially a worldwide food crisis, because Ukraine is the breadbasket of Europe, God forbid a potential nuclear war if this thing escalates further. Europe already has an energy crisis. We’re destabilizing allied governments in Eastern Europe because they can’t afford food or fuel for their citizens,” Vance added.

Smith: Will Democrats False Flag Us into a War with Russia?

The Ukraine war is still blips on radars.  Fortunately, more people oppose sending billions to Zelinsky’s corrupt regime. They’re starting to wonder why Biden’s handlers and dazed and confused Mitch McConnell give more of a damn about Ukraine than Maui and East Palestine. But those radar blips may soon balloon. Speculation is afoot that Democrats may provoke a hot war with Russia. A diversion is necessary for 2024. Some speculation exists that Democrats would ignite a major war with Russia to impose martial law and suspend elections. That seems like a bridge too far. But, then again, Democrats and their allies had no worries rigging key state presidential contests to push doddering Joe Biden into the White House. Maybe the prospect of Donald Trump getting a second bite at the apple would drive Democrats to war. Instigating a war with Russia as an election-year ploy would bust the republic. It would literally bust much of Europe and North America. Perhaps it’s better to “rule over the ashes?”

Drey: Pentagon Says China, Russia Prepared To Launch Cyber Attacks Against U.S. To Sow Chaos If War Erupts

“The United States is challenged by malicious cyber actors who seek to exploit our technological vulnerabilities and undermine our military’s competitive edge,” the 2023 Department of Defense Cyber Strategy introduction reads. “They target our critical infrastructure and endanger the American people. Defending against and defeating these cyber threats is a Department of Defense imperative.” While China poses a more serious and long-term threat, Pentagon officials are more immediately concerned with Russia.

Sundance: For a Brief Moment Today, The Pretending Stopped – Scott Perry and Dan Bishop Go Full Wolverine Against Ridiculous Media Impeachment Defense of Joe Biden

The one thing I can tell you about this video is that North Carolina Representative Dan Bishop is part of team freedom. His articulate remarks to the insufferable questioning of the media are exactly how he feels. Representatives Scott Perry and Dan Bishop both confront the pretending media with facts that destroy the argument in defense of Joe and Hunter Biden. This is what it looks like when representatives stop pretending and deliver the truth to a jaw-agape media.

Unruh: WATCH: Matt Gaetz erupts on McCarthy: ‘You are out of compliance’

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., became the U.S. House Speaker when the GOP took the majority in the last election. But choosing him was not the first option for a number of stalwart conservatives who wanted Congress to fly closer to the Constitution. So he cut a number of behind-the-scenes deals in order to gain their support. But now the promises he made are being called out. In fact, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has blasted McCarthy for not living up to his promises.

Hubbard: McCarthy announces formal Biden impeachment inquiry

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday approved an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden, even as GOP senators warn against the measure. “I did not make this decision lightly,” McCarthy said when he made an announcement at the U.S. Capitol about his support for an inquiry.

“Through our investigations, we have found that President Biden did lie to the American people about his own knowledge of his family’s foreign business dealings,” McCarthy also said. “Eyewitnesses have testified that the president joined on multiple phone calls and had multiple interactions, dinners resulted in cars and millions of dollars into his sons and his son’s business partners.” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., are expected to lay out their findings from their panels’ investigations into the Biden family during Thursday’s House Republican Conference meeting, according to multiple media reports.

Berenson: URGENT: the Centers for Disease Control just admitted the truth – the vast majority of people now hospitalized for Covid are mRNA jabbed

Covid can still be nasty even if it doesn’t put you in the hospital. A booster shot will reduce its potency. Shah argues that children (over 6 months old) should also get a Covid shot this fall, even though their own Covid risk is very low. Which makes this chart, which the CDC buried on page 17 of an 18-page presentation to the committee this morning, even more stunning. About nine out of 10 Americans over 75 hospitalized this year for Covid have received the mRNA shots. (Not with Covid, for Covid.) Similarly, five out of six Americans aged 65-74 hospitalized for Covid had been jabbed, according to the CDC. And even among adults under 50, two out of three had been vaccinated. […] So why on earth – aside from buffering the profits of Pfizer and Moderna or a simple unwillingness to admit defeat – would anyone recommend more shots?

Piper: California quietly disavows medical misinformation law before courts can strike it down

California’s COVID-19 medical misinformation law, which threatens the licenses of doctors who deviate from a fluctuating “scientific consensus” in conversations with patients, got a frosty reception in front of trial and appeals courts this year. Signed into law by Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom nearly a year ago, AB 2098 may not exist by the time judges get around to deciding its constitutionality. A provision to repeal the law was apparently added to Senate Bill 815, which makes changes to the Medical Board of California, in late August or early September with the legislative session winding down. Nobody seems to know, or is willing to say, how it got there. Jenin Younes and Laura Powell, lawyers for one set of doctors who obtained a preliminary injunction against the law in January, told Just the News they were blindsided by the repeal provision, saying it wasn’t part of any settlement talks in their case. […] A huge embarrassment for Newsom and the Supermajority. Their COVID medical censorship law has been so thoroughly condemned across the political spectrum and so roundly rejected by courts that the Legislature is repealing its own law a year after passage.

Terrell: S.D. Farmers Celebrate Another Victory Over Carbon Capture

On Monday, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) unanimously denied Summit Carbon Solutions’ application for a state permit to install a carbon-capture pipeline across central and eastern South Dakota. The motion came from the PUC’s lead staff attorney, Kristen Edwards, who maintained that Summit could not meet pipeline moratorium and set-back ordinances passed in four counties. Summit admitted it could not adhere to local standards, but it had also sued several counties, contending that they overstepped their authority.

Pearce: Democrat AG Rebuffs NM Governor, Refuses To Defend Gun Carry Ban In Court

Torrez told the governor in a letter Tuesday that he believed the emergency order, which temporarily bans people from carrying firearms in public spaces across Bernalillo County, violated the state and federal constitutions. Because of that, he said his office would not defend the governor against several legal challenges. “I am writing to inform you that my office will not defend your administration in the above referenced cases challenging” Lujan Grisham’s order, Torrez wrote. “Though I recognize my statutory obligation as New Mexico’s chief legal officer to defend state officials when they are sued in their official capacity, my duty to uphold and defend the constitutional rights of every citizen takes precedence,” his letter continued. “Simply put, I do not believe that the Emergency Order will have any meaningful impact on public safety but, more importantly, I do not believe it passes constitutional muster.”

Greenfield: NYC Pays Al Qaeda Terror State $200M to Rent Hotel Rooms to Illegal Aliens

Paying for your own destruction. The Roosevelt Hotel claims that it’s the place “where classic elegance meets contemporary luxury”. Classic elegance and luxury at the midtown Manhattan hotel looks like busloads of migrant invaders arriving and camping outside the golden doors. The scene is no better inside where 41 migrants have been arrested for beating wives, girlfriends and significant others. There have also been assaults on employees and an arrest for child endangerment. While the Roosevelt Hotel may have an old name, Mayor Eric Adams and New York City actually leased it from Pakistan for $220 million. That amounts to paying $210 per room for each night that an illegal alien invader uses it to smoke meth or abuse their wives and daughters. […] Pakistan International Airlines, under the control of the terror state’s government, was barred from flying directly to the United States after 9/11, it was allowed to take over the hotel and run it into the ground. The Biden administration has since allowed PIA to resume direct flights. The Pakistani government harbored Osama bin Laden. Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had initiated negotiations with Al Qaeda and offered to “reestablish normal relations.” Former Prime Minister Imran Khan, nicknamed ‘Taliban Khan’, had called Bin Laden a “martyr”. […] Beyond Pakistan, other foreign business interests are also benefiting from the foreign invasion. Chinese developer Jubao Xie, who put up the world’s tallest Holiday Inn in Manhattan, got $190 a night, $93,000 a day and $2.8 million a month to house the invaders. The skyscraper hotel, . . .

Whedon: Nearly 3/4 Republicans want McConnell out of Senate leadership: poll

The Kentucky Republican has vowed to remain Senate minority leader and to complete his current Senate term amid mounting pressure for his resignation due to concerns he is not well enough to serve in office. 73% of respondents in a recent Rasmussen Reports poll opined that he ought to leader Senate leadership. That figure included 74% of Republicans and 73% of Democrats. “I’m going to finish my term as leader and I’m going to finish my Senate term,” he said earlier this month.

Puder: Palestinian Terror Rising

Organized Palestinian terror is back to haunt Israeli civilians. In fact, 2023 has been the most lethal year in terms of terror and casualties since 2005, the last year of the Second Intifada. While in the intervening years, terror was essentially committed by individual Palestinians whether by knifing, or car ramming, the current terror unleashed by Palestinian terrorists is organized. It includes a central command of terrorists affiliated with Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah. Most of the recent terror actions have taken place in Judea and Samaria. The Hamas leadership in Gaza is behind the organized campaign. In recent weeks, the Jewish state has been challenged by a strategic turnaround in the way Palestinian terrorists are waging their deadly actions in Judea and Samaria. Although the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have been able to deal seemingly well with the terrorist pockets in places such as Jenin, Nablus, and Tulkarem, it is very clear that there has been an elevated threat to Israelis in terms of the frequency and quality of the terrorist attacks. The change that is occurring in the new Palestinian terror campaign in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) is being expressed in its new sense of purpose, the use of weapons, organization, and fighting spirit, and it has generated an armed uprising. The barely functioning Palestinian Authority (PA) and the feebleness and corruption of its leader Mahmoud Abbas is one contributing factor in the rise of the organized terror campaign. The perceived weakness of Israel’s political leadership, and the turbulence within Israeli society as a result of the chaos caused by the months-old demonstrations by the Israeli left seeking to topple the right-leaning Netanyahu government, using the pretext of the Judicial Reforms, is yet another. The goal of the new Palestinian terror campaign is to force Israel to withdraw from Judea and Samaria in the same way Hezbollah in Lebanon unleashed terror, which allegedly forced Israel to withdraw from Lebanon. Hamas would have you believe that Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip because of Hamas’ resistance.
