Daily News Roundup

Sundance contributor to The Last Refuge: Tucker Carlson: “Could foreign DNA enter your cells through the mRNA COVID vax and change your DNA — and humanity itself — forever? Sounds nutty. It’s not. “Absolutely that could happen,” says Dr. Joseph Ladapo, the surgeon general of Florida. A shocking conversation.”

Dr. Joseph Mercola contributor to LewRockwell.com: Dr Thorp describes the COVID-19 shot as the deadliest drug ever, citing data which the drug company, Pfizer, the CDC and the FDA tried to bury for 75 years: “Viewers, you can go look at it yourself. You won’t find it on the Google search engine, because it’s hidden. They don’t want you to see this, but you will find it on any other search engine. Just go to Pfizer 5.3.6, and then go to page seven. You will see in the first 10 weeks of rollout it was the deadliest drug ever known to man.

Dr. Joseph Mercola contributor to LewRockwell.com: Pfizer’s own data was also alarming, showing the shots led to a miscarriage rate of 81%, a fivefold increase in stillbirth rate, a 7.9-fold increase in neonatal death rate and a 13.7% risk of adverse complications in newborns breastfeeding from mothers who’d received a COVID-19 shot.18

David Florazo contributor to Harbinger Daily: DEI is a clever-sounding solution to a problem created by Marxists and globalists. It is a perversion of the truth and a distortion of reality that causes tribalism. It is also revealing that promoters of DEI have summarized the definition and the goals of equity as: disrupt, dismantle, re-envision, and rebuild.   

David Florazo contributor to Harbinger Daily: The godless and their useful idiots have been using DEI to mask tyranny in order to perpetrate this religious cult of diversity, equity, and inclusion. University and corporate offices have become weapons to intimidate and limit speech. It has become a totalitarian movement.

Howard Kunstler.substack.com: Okay, I’ll tell you the actual reason that Ray Epps got the VIP powder puff treatment: It was to give half of America a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. . . the old double-barreled middle finger. . . a thunderous fuck you, with the subtext: we can do anything we want to you and you can’t do anything about it. . . and we can rub your faces in it, too, ho ho. . . and then empty a bed pan over your head in case you’re not feeling sufficiently impotent and humiliated. And the purpose of all that is their hope to foment some act of genuine violent resistance against the blob to justify further lawless persecution of the blob’s enemies. They’re really hoping to set off a civil war to justify martial law in order to ensure a free and fair election.

Victor Davis Hanson contributor to American Greatness: In truth, each succeeding cycle of corrupt leftwing lawfare that ends in failure—the Russian collusion hoax, the weaponized first impeachment, trying ex-president Trump in the Senate as a private citizen, the laptop disinformation set-up, the Alfa bank ping caper, the pathetic attempt to erase Trump from state ballots, and the unfolding Fani Willis moral debacle—does not return things to zero. Rather, they serve as force multipliers for each other. Each overreach geometrically increases the dangers to democracy, ever more turns the public off, and ironically cascades sympathy and poll numbers for the very target of their paranoias.

Craig Bannister reporter for CNS News: Criminal cartels are running the border – no matter what DHS Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas and his media mouthpieces tell you – and the real truth “would scare the hell out of you America,” the U.S. Border Patrol Union warned Tuesday. Don’t be fooled: the number of cartel border-crossers didn’t actually decrease when Sec. Mayorkas visited Eagle Pass, Texas on Monday – they simply entered from another part of the state, the Border Patrol Union explains in a social media post: “Here’s a shocking bit of news for the uninformed. “Mayorkas goes to the border. Cartels magically halve the number of border crossings in that area (Eagle Pass, TX). But the numbers in Tucson magically increase by the same number. “Criminal cartels run the border, period.”

Mercola: Most Lethal Drug Ever, Why Won’t the FDA Stop It?

“Shot Dead The Movie,” tells the heartbreaking stories of children who died after receiving COVID-19 shots. Their parents are left behind to pick up the pieces, wondering how and why a shot they were assured was safe took the lives of their children, ranging in age from newborn to 18.

While the U.K. and Denmark stopped their vaccination programs for children, U.S. health authorities continue to state adverse reactions are “rare” and the benefits of COVID-19 shots outweigh the risks of COVID-19 for children. Even as children are dying, no warnings have been issued to let parents know of this very real risk. Meanwhile, parents of children who have died say they’re being given the run around from different agencies and purposely being kept in the dark. 2 Board-certified internist and cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough explains in the film: […] Trista was a healthy 18-year-old getting ready for college when she got a COVID-19 shot. Her health began to decline shortly after, and she died three months later. […] The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office submitted a report to the family listing pulmonary emboli, acidosis, respiratory failure, renal failure, cardiac right ventricular failure, early myocardial infarction, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and multiple additional maladies that were present at the time of Trista’s death, concluding her official cause of death was “undetermined.” In another case, 16-year-old Ernesto Ramirez Jr. . . .

Mercola: What’s the Magic Number of “Vaccines” Needed for Covid?

  • With shockingly little data, questionable benefits and a high likelihood of adverse events, the continuing campaign for COVID-19 shots raises many red flags
  • The documentary “The Unseen Crisis,” detailed by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, scratches the surface of the many lives ruined by COVID-19 shots
  • For every 1 million shots, an estimated 1,010 to 1,510 serious adverse reactions, such as death, life-threatening conditions, hospitalization or significant disability may occur — but only about 75 hospitalizations would be prevented among those aged 18 to 49
  • Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo has called for an end to the use of COVID-19 mRNA shots, citing concerns about DNA fragments in the products
  • The FDA provided no evidence that appropriate DNA integration assessments have been conducted on mRNA COVID-19 shots; in a statement, Ladapo says, “DNA integration poses a unique and elevated risk to human health and to the integrity of the human genome”

So, in addition to the spike protein and mRNA in COVID-19 shots, McKernan’s team discovered SV40 promoters that, for decades, have been suspected of causing cancer in humans, including mesotheliomas, lymphomas and cancers of the brain and bone.27 Fact checkers have called out the preprint study for using expired vials, but as McKernan tweeted:

Davidson: Ron DeSantis Failed Spectacularly In Iowa, But It Didn’t Have To Be This Way

The results of the Iowa caucuses surprised no one: Donald Trump ran away with it, as his 28-point lead in the polls going into Monday suggested he would. The polls were accurate this time, and most corporate media outlets called Iowa for Trump not long after 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The former president ended up with 51 precent of the total caucus vote, followed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a distant second with 21 percent, and Nikki Haley coming in third at 19 percent. But the big news of the night isn’t Trump’s massive win, it’s DeSantis’ spectacular defeat. His campaign is now a cautionary tale about how not to go after Trump. DeSantis had every advantage before he launched his presidential bid. He was a popular governor of a large state who won reelection in a landslide in 2022, notched major, substantive policy victories, and was adept at punching back at hostile corporate media. Yet somehow he managed to squander all this and flame out in Iowa. Recall that less than a year ago, in April 2023, before he launched his campaign for president, DeSantis was polling near 30 percent in the Hawkeye State. Why did DeSantis do all this? Because his strategy was to win Iowa to show GOP voters nationwide that he could take on Trump and win.

Cathell: Joy Reid: There Are Too Many White Christians in Iowa!

On the evening of the first-in-the-nation caucuses, MSNBC’s race-obsessed Joy Reid, a black woman who oft-complains about “cultural appropriation” yet dyes her hair blonde, was triggered that white Christians make up a majority of Iowa’s electorate. “I feel like the important sort of data point […] is that these are white Christians,” she said. “This is a state that is overrepresented by white Christians that are going to participate in these caucuses, especially tonight […] This is a hyper evangelical, white state.”

(Projection) Trump’s Historic Iowa Win Causes MSNBC Host to Completely Implode

If there is one thing that’s always entertaining, it’s the liberal host seething and fighting back tears while putting on a calm and composed face for the audience. Everyone at MSNBC was ripping shots and popping pills in between commercial breaks. Donald Trump won the Iowa Caucuses by the widest margin in history, 30 points, and clinching over 50 percent of the vote. The GOP base is riding with Trump, and this momentum is sure to carry into New Hampshire, which, despite propaganda by Nikki Haley’s camp, is also Trump country.  Trump’s Iowa win caused the panel on MSNBC to implode, especially Rachel Maddow.

(RED FLAG – Here we go again. The last “hypothetical” pandemic Davos globalists warned about was COVID-19) Tilley: World leaders meet in Davos to thrash out plan to protect against ‘Disease X’ – a hypothetical pandemic that could kill 20-times more people than Covid

World leaders are set to meet this week to talk out concerns about the potential for a future pandemic that could cause 20 times more fatalities than Covid. A panel led by World Health Organization chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Gehreyesus will debate ‘novel efforts needed to prepare healthcare systems for the multiple challenges ahead’ at a session called ‘Preparing for Disease X’ at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Disease X represents a hypothetical, currently unknown pathogen. It was added to the WHO’s list of nine priority diseases in 2018. Dr Gehreyesus will be joined on Wednesday by Michel Demaré, chair of the board of pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, Brazilian health minister Nisia Trindade Lima, Royal Philips CEO Roy Jakobs, Indian hospital chain Apollo’s executive vice-chairperson Preetha Reddy and Shyam Bishen, head of the center for health and healthcare and member of the World Economic Forum’s executive committee.

(Great Reset) Florazo: Critical Thinking Is A Thing Of The Past: Is DEI Another Manufactured Crisis?

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. These three words have been given new meanings and have become weaponized. Once we understand what’s driving the DEI movement, we will want to raise awareness, push back, and resist it. But it won’t be easy. This ideology has become deeply entrenched in academia, government, Hollywood, the media, and the corporate world, for starters. Too many people have been hoodwinked. Americans are generally respectful, kind, tolerant, and generous. Despite real issues and tensions, racial and otherwise, most U.S. citizens are family-oriented, hard-working, and colorblind. This country is blessed to be a multicultural haven for people of every ethnicity, nationality, culture, race, and religion. We have allowed other languages, religions, and traditions to be practiced. And yet, the left has programmed generations to think America was built on discrimination, is hopelessly evil, systemically racist, anti-immigrant, greedy, capitalistic, anti-gay, and anti-woman, for starters. This is their narrative. These are their talking points. It is another manufactured crisis. Their solution? […] DEI is a clever-sounding solution to a problem created by Marxists and globalists. It is a perversion of the truth and a distortion of reality that causes tribalism. It is also revealing that promoters of DEI have summarized the definition and the goals of equity as: disrupt, dismantle, re-envision, and rebuild.

(Heritage Foundation President) Kevin Roberts: Why I am going to Davos

I don’t typically go where I’m not wanted, but I do tend to go where I’m needed. So I was intrigued by the invitation to attend a globalist sleepaway camp in the beautiful Swiss Alps — some pop-up utopia called Davos. At first, it sounded as dreadful as a road trip with the New York Times editorial board.

The infamous hypocritical self-avowed Marxists, private-jet environmentalists, and genocide-adjacent humanitarians want to hear from the Heritage Foundation how they can “rebuild trust” with everyday Americans against whom they have weaponized their institutions. The biblical principle “cast not your pearls before swine” came to mind. But a deeply meaningful part of my role at Heritage is to represent the voice of millions of forgotten men and women across this country. We are the everyday American’s outpost in Washington, D.C. So I could happily — while admittedly dreadingly — hop across the Atlantic to the land where leftist elites indulge fellow insufferable elites and be a voice on the world stage sharing inconvenient truths. And here is what I’m going to tell them.

Kunstler: Poison Spiders at the Center of the Web

I’ll tell you one reason Ray didn’t get, like, twenty years, nor two years of pre-trial detention in the reeking, roach-infested DC lockup, or massive fines, like other J-6 defendants: Because he told his handlers in no uncertain terms that he would blow their cover and vivisect them publicly on the whole fed J-6 operation if they so much as made him show up in person for any proceeding — and, of course, he “attended” his sentencing by phone, in a Zoom meeting from a remote location. Okay, I’ll tell you the actual reason that Ray Epps got the VIP powder puff treatment: It was to give half of America a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. . . the old double-barreled middle finger. . . a thunderous fuck you, with the subtext: we can do anything we want to you and you can’t do anything about it. . . and we can rub your faces in it, too, ho ho. . . and then empty a bed pan over your head in case you’re not feeling sufficiently impotent and humiliated.

Solomon: Art dealer told Congress that Joe Biden called and met him while he sold Hunter Biden’s paintings

The art dealer who sold Hunter Biden’s paintings told Congress that President Joe Biden both called and met him at the White House as he was pitching Hunter’s artwork and that the first son also made an unusual request to be informed about who bought his pieces, according to testimony that directly undercuts the White House narrative on the sales. The Biden White House repeatedly told the public that Hunter Biden’s art sales were covered by an ethics agreement to ensure they were arms-length and that the first family — Hunter included — was blinded to the identity of buyers.

But George Berges, owner of the prestigious Berges art galleries based in New York and Berlin that sold Hunter Biden’s painting from 2020 to 2023, told congressional impeachment investigators that the first son likely knew the identity of 70% of the buyers – the largest who were Democrat donors – and that Hunter Biden’s first contract made an unusual request when the relationship started.

Watson: Former State Department Official Warns Military is Planning to Derail Trump Presidency

On Sunday, NBC reported that “a loose-knit network of public interest groups and lawmakers” are planning to use lawfare and other tactics to block Trump from exercising power on day one of his return to the Oval Office. According to the article, these insiders will go all out “to foil any efforts to expand presidential power,” even if Trump has been given a mandate to do so by the American people. “Those taking part in the effort told NBC News they are studying Trump’s past actions and 2024 policy positions so that they will be ready if he wins in November,” states the article. “That involves preparing to take legal action and send letters to Trump appointees spelling out consequences they’d face if they undermine constitutional norms.” […] Another respondent pointed out that the woman credited with organizing this plan, Mary B. McCord, is coordinating an “effort to strip Trump of his power as commander in chief.”

Cleveland: Mark Meadows Enlisting Legal Legend Paul Clement In Fulton County Defense Indicates Case Could Head To SCOTUS

Paul Clement, a former solicitor general and appellate attorney who has scored some of the most significant victories before the United States Supreme Court, recently took over as lead attorney for Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Clement has already upped the ante with the petition he filed earlier this month in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit by highlighting that unless Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ criminal vendetta against Meadows is removed to federal court, Republican prosecutors will have a green light to eke out revenge. In that petition, Clement asked the entire 11th Circuit to reconsider the earlier decision by a three-judge panel holding that Meadows could not remove to federal court the criminal case Willis launched against him last year. Clement’s strong reputation signals that should the 11th Circuit deny rehearing — or grant rehearing and again hold that Meadows cannot remove the case under federal statute — Meadows’ legal team is prepared to seek review by the U.S. Supreme Court. Having Clement on the Supreme Court’s petition for review will add an invaluable gravitas to the case.

Among the newly revealed participants is Treasurer Anthony Duncan, who held the influential position under the tenure of Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel while attending the Beijing-based event in 2017. Evidenced through a decades-long trove of documents, War Room can reveal the identities of several RNC Chairmen and Treasurers who participated in several versions of an annual event – the U.S.-China High-Level Political Party Leaders Dialogue – alongside members of the Chinese Communist Party. Despite this apparent national security threat, the following RNC Leaders have participated in the U.S.-China High-Level Political Party Leaders Dialogue: Former Chairman Ed Gillespie; Former RNC Chairman Jim Nicholson; Former RNC Treasurer Anthony Parker; and Former RNC Chairman Robert Duncan. […] “The most significant evolution of the process occurred in 2013, when we reached out to the Democratic and Republican Parties and invited sitting DNC and RNC officers to take part in the dialogue for the first time. Whereas in earlier convenings, we had featured prominent Democratic and Republican former statesmen, governors and legislators, as well as former DNC and RNC chairs, now we were also involving sitting DNC and RNC leaders and that added a new element to the talks,” explains the East West Institute in a blog post.

Solomon: Iran’s Revolutionary Guard deployed in Yemen

Commanders and advisors from Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are on the ground in Yemen and playing a direct role in Houthi rebel attacks on commercial traffic in the Red Sea. The IRGC has stationed missile and drone trainers and operators in Yemen, as well as personnel providing tactical intelligence support to the Houthis, U.S. and Middle East officials told Semafor. The IRGC, through its overseas Qods Force, has also overseen the transfer to the Houthis of the attack drones, cruise missiles, and medium-range ballistic missiles used in a string of strikes on Red Sea and Israeli targets in recent weeks, these officials said. The Houthis say that its military operations are designed to aid the Palestinian militant group, Hamas, which has been locked in a three-month war with Israel.

Ravid: Biden “running out” of patience with Bibi as Gaza war hits 100 days

President Biden and other senior U.S. officials are becoming increasingly frustrated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his rejection of most of the administration’s recent requests related to the war in Gaza, four U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the issue told Axios.

Why it matters: Since the Oct. 7 Hamas attack 100 days ago, Biden has given Israel his full backing, with unprecedented military and diplomatic support, even while taking a political hit from part of his base in an election year. That support has largely continued publicly, but behind the scenes, there are growing signs that Biden is losing his patience, the U.S. officials said. “The situation sucks and we are stuck. The president’s patience is running out,” one U.S. official told Axios.

U.S. cargo ship was hit Monday in the Red Sea by a ballistic missile fired by the Iranian-backed rebel group the Houthis, according to the Pentagon.  The reported attack is another incident in the international shipping channel shortly after the start of the Israel-Hamas war in early-October 2023. In response, the U.S. has fired missiles over the past several days into Yemen, where the group, which sympathizes with the Palestinian-affiliate Hamas, purportedly has headquarters. The strike hit the Gibraltar Eagle and no injuries have been reported, according to U.S. Central Command.

Nagel & Stricker: Israel must remove Iran’s nuclear insurance policy – opinion

If the Islamic Republic of Iran decides to dash to a nuclear weapon, it will likely activate Tehran’s formidable insurance policy, the terrorist group Hezbollah, to open another front in Israel’s war and distract Jerusalem. This is the assessment of the Israeli government. As the regime breaks out, Iran will almost certainly direct Hezbollah to assault Israel with some 150,000 to 200,000 rockets, missiles, drones, and projectiles it has stockpiled, many of them precision-guided-munitions (PGMs), all underwritten by Iran’s generous funding and technology transfers.

Kwiatkowski: Dark Brandon, Democratic Humanitarian

Gonzalo Lira, an American citizen and global reporter, died this week in a Kharkov prison eight months after he was arrested for the crime of speaking the truth about what was happening in Ukraine. Under Secretary of State Vickie Nuland, despised Gonzalo, as did Zelensky. People from around the world, who had been informed by Gonzalo’s reports, interviews and articles asked their governments to assist.  None apparently did, and most certainly his own government – the one led by Dark Brandon and the Democrats and the war-loving, truth-hating Republicans – did absolutely nothing. Well, that’s not entirely true. The US government downplayed the arrest and the conditions, and denied that Lira was a journalist (along the lines of similar denials relating to Julian Assange). The progressive liberal Daily Beast did several attack pieces on Gonzalo before and after his detention. Oh, and he was a smoker too. Just as the Australian government has been of no help to their cruelly and wrongly imprisoned citizen Julian Assange, our own government was of zero assistance to Gonzalo Lira. He was isolated from and received no attention or advocacy by the many US State Department officers in Ukraine. Perhaps they were too busy handing out US taxpayer cash and paychecks to the Ukrainian government and Zelensky’s cronies. We may never know the truth. What we do know, and may learn from Gonzalo’s death at the hands of the Joe Biden administration and their puppet dictator in Kiev, is that rule of law and the duties of the state to its citizens that one might presume from a casual reading of the US Constitution, is dead, dry, decayed, decrepit, and damned to hell.

Utter: President Biden’s ‘Top Priority’ for a second term?

What a platform Democrats will have for 2024:

  • Make unrestricted abortion the law of the land (Make Abortion Great Again!)
  • Pack the court
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Eliminate the filibuster
  • Statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico
  • Work towards the elimination of fossil fuels… and gasoline-powered vehicles and equipment
  • Provide more money for teachers’ unions
  • Provide more money for mainstream media outlets
  • Progress towards making “15-minute cities” a reality across the United States
  • Significantly raise taxes on ammunition so as to make it unaffordable for all but wealthy Democrat donors… thereby rendering guns—and the First Amendment—moot.
  • Make mail-in voting a permanent fixture in every state for every election
  • Lower the voting age to 16

All of this in the name of “saving our democracy,” of course.

Wooten: Biden accelerates federal student loan forgiveness, driving deeper wedge

Federal student loan forgiveness, hotly debated and previously litigated by political parties, will begin for some in February rather than July, a date moved up by the Biden administration and announced through the U.S. Department of Education. Friday’s announcement eventually will impact 6.9 million borrowers enrolled in the Saving on a Valuable Education Plan, including more than a half-million in each of California (597,300) and Texas (591,700), and more than a quarter-million in Florida (475,800), New York (374,300), Ohio (299,600), Pennsylvania (289,800) and Georgia (286,000). SAVE, for borrowers taking out $12,000 or less for college and who have made at least 10 years of repayments, replaced the Revised Pay As You Earn plan and netted more twice the registrations. […] Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said the plan is designed “to put community college students and other low-balance borrowers on a faster track to debt forgiveness than ever before.” Republicans say it is Biden’s way around failing to get congressional support to make community college free.

Kerwick: Back to the Future: Resurrecting the Warrior-Scholar Ideal

On November 7, The Warrior-Scholar Ideal Revisited: New Essays on Old Visionwas released by Stairway Press.

I am one of its two authors. The other is retired USMC Lieutenant-Colonel Al Ridenhour, a veteran of multiple tours of duty and dozens of combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ridenhour is also a lifelong martial artist and the founder of Warrior Flow Combatives, a system of self-defense in which I am a Senior-Instructor. As its subtitle clarifies, the point of the book is to acquaint readers with the vision of the Warrior-Scholar, a trans-historical, cross-cultural ideal of manhood that has largely been lost to the contemporary West. […] The Warrior-Scholar Ideal Revisited is our attempt to initiate the process of restoring this lost ideal of manhood, of belying the mind-body dualism that had to take flight when the excellences of the Warrior were disjoined from those of the Scholar.

Green: I Can’t Believe This Is a Real Science Class at a Real University

Did you know that chemistry changes with skin color? I don’t mean the amount of or type of melanin a person might have in their skin, determining how dark- or light-skinned they turn out to be. I’m talking about the actual atomic/molecular structures and processes of chemistry because those are totally different now if you’re black. At least, that’s according to one young chemistry professor at Rice University who is teaching a new class beginning this semester called Afrochemistry, “the study of black-life matter.” […] In Chem 125, Johnson will instruct her undergrads — who are expected to pony up around $78,278 for the privilege of attending during the 2022-23 academic year — on how to “apply chemical tools and analysis to understand black life in the US,” along with her “personal reflections and proposals for addressing inequities in chemistry and chemical education.” In other words, Tom Lehrer can teach you more about chemistry for free in 85 seconds than Professor Johnson can for thousands of dollars over an entire semester.

Tapson: Johns Hopkins Backpedals on DEI After Diversity Chief Says Quiet Part Out Loud

Remember when the word “privilege” used to have a positive meaning, denoting a personal honor or blessing of some kind? “I’m privileged to speak to you all today.” “It was a privilege to meet the President.” Good times. But as always when the Left appropriates and degrades language for its own ideological purposes, “privilege” has been perverted into a negative. It is now almost exclusively used to mean “benefits that the oppressor class appropriates for itself and denies to the oppressed.” White people are deemed to be “privileged” in all ways at the expense of minorities. Straight people are privileged at the expense of the supposedly marginalized Alphabet People. Privilege is theft now. It is oppression. Ironically, arguably no one in America today is more privileged than the con artists of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) juggernaut, whose apparent mission is to correct such social injustices.

Berrien: Anti-Israel Mob Targets Pediatric Cancer Hospital In NYC

On Monday, anti-Israel activists led their crowd to demonstrate in front of one of the most famous cancer centers in the world, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The hospital was founded in 1884 as New York Cancer Hospital, the first cancer hospital in the United States. It also contains one of America’s top pediatric hospitals for cancer care, as well as over 120 research laboratories that focus on fighting the disease. In March 2023, the Center became the first in the nation to receive the American College of Surgeons’ Level I Specialty Children’s Center in Oncology designation.

Ashley St. Clair X post: What in the world is this? Just received this from a friend. Restaurants in LA are charging a 4% “LA Health” fee. The charge is to keep “employees healthy and happy” and is apparently city wide to have customers cover health insurance for restaurant employees.

Prestigiacomo: ‘We Must Normalize Massacres’: Anti-Israel Activist Earns Cheers From London Crowd; Critics Blast Police Response

Activist Mohammed El-Kurd earned cheers and applause from a crowd of thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters in London on Saturday, when he called to “normalize massacres as the status quo” during a speech condemning Israel and Zionism. Though London police have acted aggressively against so-called “hate speech” that falls outside the Left’s ideology, the late response from the U.K.’s Metropolitan Police, which included a plan to “speak” to El-Kurd, earned much criticism.


The Prickly Pear’s TAKE ACTION focus this year is to help achieve a winning 2024 national and state November 5th election with the removal of the Biden/Obama leftist executive branch disaster, win one U.S. Senate seat, maintain and win strong majorities in all Arizona state offices on the ballot and to insure that unrestricted abortion is not constitutionally embedded in our laws and culture.

Please click the TAKE ACTION link to learn to do’s and don’ts for voting in 2024. Our state and national elections are at great risk from the very aggressive and radical leftist Democrat operatives with documented rigging, mail-in voter fraud and illegals voting across the country (yes, with illegals voting across the country) in the last several election cycles.

Read Part 1 and Part 2 of The Prickly Pear essays entitled How NOT to Vote in the November 5, 2024 Election in Arizona to be well informed of the above issues and to vote in a way to ensure the most likely chance your vote will be counted and counted as you intend.
