Vaccine Mandates May Herald The End Of The Republic


 COVID-19 may end up destroying everything. Everything. Including our way of life. And our prosperity. Or, more accurately stated, the elites’ reaction to the virus may do what no previous enemy, foreign or domestic, has ever come close to doing. It is inarguable that without the coronavirus pandemic Joe Biden would not be president today. And he and his puppet masters are well on their way to destroying America’s work ethic, social fabric, economy, military, and global respect.

And now Biden is pressing employers to enact mask mandates, making one’s vaccination status a condition of employment. It is illegal for an employer to ask a prospective employee about their race, age, sexual preference, or other medical history, but, dammit, they can say “show us proof that you’ve had ‘The Jab’ or take a hike.”    

The highest unemployment rate in U.S. history was 24.9 percent in 1933, at the height of the Great Depression. Broad-based government-backed employer vaccine mandates would effectively mean that as many as 30 to 35 percent of us will essentially be told we can't have a job. Do we starve, surrender our homes, or go on unemployment and various other forms of government assistance? What if the government decides that we won’t be allowed to collect unemployment or any other form of assistance if we are not fully vaccinated? In this one instance, and one instance only, I could see the administration saying that it wouldn’t be fair to make taxpayers have to fund benefits… for The Unvaccinated. Of course, it would be the government’s very policies that created this massive group of unemployed and their subsequent need for assistance, but no one would be allowed to mention this with impunity. We are also in the throes of a pandemic of lies, obfuscation and authoritarianism.   

To say this does not bode well for the American economy, as well as the unvaccinated, would be an understatement. Even if additional assistance were not paid out, the burden on remaining taxpayers would be greatly increased. And the already historic labor shortage would be greatly exacerbated, most devastatingly so in the health care industry, ironically. The fact that the unvaccinated are quickly being banned from restaurants, concert halls, sports venues, retail stores, theme parks, etc., necessarily means a substantial drop in revenue for these venues, as well. Many businesses will have no alternative other than to close permanently. Which means more unemployed people. Which…well, you get the idea.

We now even have the specter of people needing critical or life-saving surgery being told they must submit to becoming fully vaccinated before they will be accommodated.

The powers that be care so much about our health they are basically telling us to “eff off” and die unless we agree to be vaccinated. One gets the distinct impression that our rulers would love to deport all of us MAGA-wearing unvaccinated types and replace us with refugees from anyplace that has no history or concept of individual liberty and the rule of law.         

The elites are telling us what we can and can’t do, where we are not allowed to go and that we likely can't have gainful employment. What are they afraid of?  Either the vaccinations work and they are protected or they don’t and they are lying.  I am sick and damn tired of the fulminations of those who purport to care yet use this pandemic to put their knees on the throats of those with whom they disagree. You do not shun people, ban them from public spaces, mock them as idiots, deny them gainful employment-- and life-saving surgery-- out of concern for their well-being.

Plainly put, these frauds are conducting the biggest hoax, power play and act of evil in human history, all while attempting to cloak themselves in virtue-signaling glory. Sound vaguely familiar?

Winston Churchill once noted of the fight against the Nazis: “… if we fail, then the whole world… will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.” His observation is perfectly fitting today. Sadly, the new Nazis are winning, and are ironically doing so by labeling us “anti-vaxxers” and disguising themselves as “anti-Nazis” (Antifa), just as the new racists proclaim themselves to be anti-racists.

If the American economy is destroyed, the concepts of Natural Law and individual rights are expunged, and the 4th, 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution are ignored, the United States—and the rest of the world—will sink into an abyss, a new Dark Age. One made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science…and perverted scientists… whether at the Wuhan lab or in the NIH.

Psaki Says Administration Can't Guarantee All Americans Will Be Evacuated From Afghanistan


Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently said, “I don’t think we can guarantee” that all Americans who want to get out of Afghanistan will be able to get out of Afghanistan after August 31st.

She might as well have added, “And we must leave by August 31st as that was our agreement with the Taliban. So, we have no choice, get over it! Anyway, on to vital matters of health and public safety. It is absolutely crucial that all Americans get vaccinated! In fact, we promised the Taliban that 75% of Americans would be fully vaccinated by September 11th, and we don’t want to go back on our word! I mean, what kind of a nation would do that?”

The West Exiting, Stage Left


To say things aren’t looking up in the world is an understatement of breathtaking proportions. In America alone, the Southern border has been erased, crime is skyrocketing in almost all of our major cities, inflation is rampant, race relations have been set back by roughly 60 years, and free market capitalism has been replaced by an essentially fascist oligarchy of giant businesses and massive government protected and enhanced by Big Tech, Big Education and the legacy media.      

And that’s just for starters. The Biden administration has attacked our oil, gas, and coal industries and obliterated our recently achieved energy independence, thereby weakening our national security while strengthening our adversaries. Moreover, our formerly representative republic has been hijacked by a vast deep state bureaucracy and a large cadre of leftist activists, politicians, wokesters, tyrants, and assorted other cranks and asshats determined to tell the rest of us what we can and can’t do, how to live…and when to die. Our nursing homes and other healthcare facilities are soon to collapse due to inflexible, unconstitutional-- and immoral-- vaccination mandates that are forcing many employees to leave their jobs.  

 If the Green New Deal is enacted, in whole or in part, it is curtains for the world’s largest economy.

And we all know of the recent disaster in Afghanistan and the catastrophe in Kabul.  

President Biden should head to his Delaware basement in shame. He should hide there. It would be only fitting, as he has “led” his country into a figurative basement and very real shame.

But, in fairness, the U.S. isn’t the only nation in decline. The entire nation of New Zealand was recently locked down due to the presence of one—count it, one—case of COVID-19. What will it’s leaders do to citizens when a large outbreak of another communicable disease occurs? Kill them all proactively?

Spurred by a typically excellent piece by Mark Steyn, I recently read through the 30-page “Directions from Chief Health Officer in accordance with emergency powers arising from declared state of emergency,” a.k.a “Restricted Activity Directions (Regional Victoria) (No 7).” This was direction from the government of the state of Victoria, Australia.   

           The document had a lengthy and disjointed preamble, followed by specific directives for various types of businesses and entities. Really specific. These were likewise followed by several pages defining the terms used in the preceding pages of the document. Lastly, penalties for failure to follow the preposterous preceding proscriptions were posted. Said document noted that a “COVID Check-in Marshal” would be present at all entrances to most venues.    

          It further noted that “any dancefloor in a place of worship” would be closed for the duration of the pandemic. (I was sadly unaware that most churches had dancefloors, mosh-pits and the like.) On the brighter side, the regulations dutifully explained that “Sex on premises, brothels and sexually explicit entertainment venues“ could stay open for business, provided that “the number of members of the public permitted in any outdoor space or indoor space at any one time is limited to the density quotient and the total number of members of the public permitted in the whole of the  venue at any time is limited (with infants under one year of age not counted towards this limit) to the lesser of the density quotient and 100.”

           “Infants under one year of age” are “not counted towards this limit?” Do many people attending “sex on premises venues” bring their infants? And is it not at least a bit odd that church dancefloors are closed to help limit the spread of the virus, but brothels are still good to go?

            Yet perhaps my favorite bit of government overreach came on page 27, via definition 52. This cleared up the ever-so confounding meaning of “outdoor space.” It did so by defining it thusly: “a space that is not an indoor space.” Brilliant!

           Who wouldn’t have wanted to be in the meetings where government officials and officious bureaucrats sucked up their citizens tax dollars by interminably debating this minutia? I hope the guy or gal who nailed the meaning of “outdoor space” got a raise.

In a perfect world, or even just a better one, any government so cosmically, gobsmackingly, obscenely vast-- and daft-- could be immediately locked down by the people.

Proof Of Vaccination Required To Retain Your Right To Life


Mark my words: soon we will need a vaccine passport/proof of vaccination to purchase a firearm. To the tyrants, that’s a twofer. They will either force individuals to get vaccinated or deny them the right to protect themselves. You know they are getting incredibly aroused just pondering that idea. They tend to believe that most unvaccinated folks are uneducated redneck rubes from flyover states, NRA members, Trump supporters, Republicans, the uneducated..and uncaring. This notion, however, is simply incorrect.

The elites have already masterfully used COVID-19 to dramatically increase their own power, and their hold on it for perpetuity, while boldly stealing power and God-given rights from the people. What a coup it would be if they could also use the pandemic to skirt the Second Amendment! They will tell us firearm ownership is a privilege, not a right. Progressives blur the distinction between privileges and rights like they blur the distinction between males and females, truth and fiction and reality and fantasy.

The elites think: “unvaccinated equals uneducated equals uncaring…it all ties together!” So, the unvaccinated must be educated. And, unlike the many socialist/Marxist/Communist regimes throughout history who sent the “deniers” away to re-education camps, our rulers are thoughtfully bringing the re-education camps to us. They are doing this via school and workplace “training” programs such as critical race theory (CRT) and diversity, inclusion and equity (DIE) indoctrination.

  In the past, it was often said that “the truth will set you free.” Sadly, today the truth is more likely to get you “cancelled,” fired or killed. But I am going to tell the truth right now, anyway: conservatives and the unvaccinated are well on the way to becoming the new Jews. Individual liberty be damned! Don’t we realize that all that matters is what’s best for the ruling class everyone? I mean, the Third Reich had to get rid of the Jews, right? They were a blight on the rest of German society, stealing its wealth and opportunity and potentially diluting the Aryan bloodlines. Ergo, they had to be segregated from the rest of society and subjected to medical experiments…or worse. Just as our government(s) demand we allow ourselves to be subjected to a vast, systemic medical experiment today. Don’t want to submit? Then you shall be dubbed an “Anti-Vaxxer!” And a threat to society. Perhaps you should be banned from public places, deported, imprisoned…or worse.

Oh, and if you stubbornly refuse to submit to science, you naturally forfeit the “privilege” of having life-saving surgery, nein?

Calling Dr. Mengele.    

Have we already forgotten the very first tenet of the Nuremberg Code of 1947 regarding permissible medical experiments and individual rights? Here is the preamble to its ten tenets:

The great weight of the evidence before us to effect that certain types of medical experiments on human beings, when kept within reasonably well-defined bounds, conform to the ethics of the medical profession generally. The protagonists of the practice of human experimentation justify their views on the basis that such experiments yield results for the good of society that are unprocurable by other methods or means of study. All agree, however, that certain basic principles must be observed in order to satisfy moral, ethical and legal concepts.

Here is the first basic principle:

  1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

 What happened to “Never Again?”

 Democrats demand that no ID or proof of residency be required to vote for president of the United States, while simultaneously demanding that citizens provide proof that they have submitted to history’s largest medical experiment if they wish to retain any of their liberties. This is beyond preposterous, beyond Orwellian, beyond belief. Or it should be. But this isn’t a nightmare, it is all too real.

We don’t need proof of who these power-mad politicians are. They have made that sickeningly clear.

Ironically—and tragically-- the Grand Experiment has ended with the onset of a medical one.

Insanity Abounds


It has come to this: according to “progressives,” reason is racist.

Sanity and logic, too. Restraint, discipline, kindness, empathy, self-control, work ethic? All are naught but hallmarks of WHITE SUPREMACY!! The Ten Commandments? Racist! And banished from the land. The “Golden Rule.” Racist, patriarchal, and a disgusting vestige of WHITE SUPREMACY!! The ability to add, multiply and subtract? Racist! (Dividing is what leftists do best, so I left that out.) Classical music? Racist!  Now you’re getting it! In rhythm now, and all together! STEM classes? Racist! The ballet? Racist! Proper English grammar? Racist! Doubly so! What’s “proper,” after all? Good manners? Racist! The ability to speak well? Racist! Advertising? Racist! Accounting? Racist! NASA? Racist! NASCAR? Racist! Etc., etc., ad nauseum.     

 Could anything be more racist and patronizing than thinking in this way?                

Where is reason? Oh yeah, reason is racist. Welcome to the world of woke.

Secular wokeism is now the most popular religion in America (and much of the West). Ironically, unlike those of most other faiths, its adherents never doubt and never question their faith or its leaders. And the rest of us must not, either, lest they subject us to a hell on Earth. If we are a baker, we must bake cakes for transgender parties and gay weddings or pay the price. As Christians, we must pay for abortion.  And, of course, all of us must take the vaccine. They mock our religious beliefs, and refuse to accommodate them, but we are told we must adhere to their most precious tenets. We must swear that a man can be a woman. We must use a transgender person’s preferred pronouns. We must not question global warming or “climate change,” lest we be labeled “deniers.” We must not be critical of CRT or BLM-- or any of their other B.S. If we eat a taco or dress in a certain way, we are not showing our appreciation for these things, but are guilty of “appropriation.” However, the rest of the world can wear Levi’s jeans, light their homes, fly in airplanes and spend hours every day on the internet and somehow it is not appropriation of American culture. Where is reason? Oops, sorry, my bad.       

And so we find ourselves in a world where Rob O'Neill, an American hero, the man who killed Osama Bin Laden, is kicked off of an airplane-- indeed an airline?-- for not wearing a facial mask during the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet recent photographs show many hundreds of Afghans bunched together mask-less in a single American cargo plane fleeing Kabul. (Precious few Americans have been rescued in this manner.) Where is…never mind.    

Speaking of insanity, while talking on the phone (another American invention) about the disaster in Afghanistan a few nights back, I said to my brother, “All these people at the highest levels of our government, in our ‘intelligence’ agencies, etc., can’t possibly have neglected to think, ‘Hey, maybe we should secure the airport in Kabul before we try to evacuate everybody.’” But if it wasn’t an oversight, it was something much worse-- and far more sinister. Unthinkable really. The chaos and calamity was, in a sense, planned. It is what our elites in the government/military/intelligence complex wanted…or at least were quite willing to put up with. It has to be.  (Obama fundamentally transformed these institutions, which is why Rush Limbaugh and other intelligent American patriots didn’t want him to be successful.) These elites want America to be taken down a peg or two. They look forward to more global governance. And they are always aroused by the thought of tens-- or hundreds-- of thousands more likely Democratic-Socialist voters refugees coming to America.    

Shortly after that conversation with my brother, I saw Tucker Carlson interviewing investigative reporter Lara Logan. She averred that what I had been thinking was indeed correct. Logan, a person much closer to the situation (and possibly the powers that be) than I am, was adamant that our leaders actually desired this apparently disastrous outcome.

There can no longer be any doubt among rational people that our woke elites do not have the interests of average American citizens in mind.

The Twentieth Century has frequently been dubbed “America’s Century.” The Twenty-First Century, apparently, will be anything but.

 America is no longer a serious nation. The Chinese embassy in Afghanistan wasn’t threatened by the Taliban, in part because the Taliban knew their would be hell to pay. China will steadfastly defend its interests, and everyone, Taliban included, knows this. Everyone used to know this about the United States, as well. Now, however, they know just the opposite. America’s leaders are much more determined that men be able use women’s restrooms and locker rooms and that no one misgenders another than they are about the Taliban taking young girls as sex slaves, stoning gays and lesbians, and brutalizing American sympathizers. Oh, and maybe launching terrorist attacks on America.

China, as always, will step into the void.    

Our elites are bent on the destruction of their own nation. But do not dare to resist or they’ll call you an extremist, a dangerous right-wing, Hate-Monger.

And remember, reason is racist!    



Shecession And Shecovery?


In response to the childcare and economic plan proposed by Canada’s Conservative Party, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently called for countering the “she-cession” and turning it into a “she-covery.” In 1980s Valley Girl parlance, “gag me with a spoon.” I hope he didn’t think he was clever.

Speaking of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trudeau, the leader of Canada’s Liberal Party, said: “You can’t actually be serious about recognizing what sort of challenges Canadian families and our Canadian society has faced over the past 17 months without recognizing that women were and are harder hit by this crisis than others.” Um, okay, sure.

He then touted the Liberals’ proposed “$10 a day” child-care plan while claiming Conservatives don’t know how to foster a strong economy: “It is exactly the example of the kinds of things you need to do to counter the ‘she-cession’ and turn it into a ‘she-covery.’ Fact is, the Conservatives don’t talk about that in their lengthy platform. They don’t talk about feminism. They don’t talk about the impact on women of this crisis. And that’s why their decision, far from being an exception or something that we can blow past to reverse course on childcare, is actually at the heart of their misunderstanding of how to grow a strong economy.”

What preposterously inane remarks in every respect. I shecoiled when I heard them. Trudeau couldn’t have appeared any goofier if he was wearing sheotards purchased at a cheap (sheap?) shetail store. I usually try to give people some sheeway and never shemand perfection. And it’s not like the Prime Minister was praising the aborting of shetuses. Still, I wonder if he is deliberately trying to shestroy the English language. Does Trudeau only butcher it when speaking, or does he do the same with his shemails and other written correspondence? If the West is to shebound and be taken seriously ever again, it will have to shed itself of politicians like Trudeau.

              Trudeau’s comments came just weeks before Canadians are set to vote in a snap election.

Let’s hope this boob is shefeated at the polls. If not, Canadians should shemand a shecount.

American Debacle


Perhaps it’s time to call a lid on Biden’s presidency before he calls a (permanent) lid on America. (Here’s an idea out of The Left’s own playbook: everyone who voted for Biden should be forced to receive all 3 COVID-1984 vaccines…at once. And their booster shots. Turnabout is fair play. We can show them we non-vaccinated folks care about them just as much as they purport to care about us.)

But seriously, there is an interesting—and telling—paradox here. Conservatives and the non-vaccinated don’t wish to tell others what to do. That respect is rarely reciprocated. I should not have to bake a cake for a transgender party or a gay wedding. But that most assuredly doesn’t mean I disdain transgenders and gays or wish to deny them their natural rights. If I was one I would still think the same way, were I rational. Personal liberty must be paramount, as granted by God and protected by the Founders and the Constitution. I don’t wish to keep transgender people and/or members of the LGBTQ community out of planes, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, etc. Yet, the self-same Leftists who might claim that I am bigoted and guilty of “marginalizing” certain “underrepresented groups,” want to prevent me from appearing in a public space if I don’t get vaccinated.

If leftists are successful at leaving individual liberty on the ash heap of history, the republic is dead. This is not hyperbole, but a simple statement of fact, as this was the uniqueness and the founding basis of America.

Why do progressives harbor this death wish for America, domestically and in terms of foreign policy? Why does a significant minority want to utterly destroy the most successful society in history? The one demonstrably the most beneficial to the most people in human history?

 Some are jealous, as they don’t have everything others may have. Those of whom they are jealous, those who “have it all,” are often racked by guilt. These two pathetic groups join forces against the once vast (but now shrinking) middle class. The elites take advantage of this dynamic, seeking to divide, demonize and demoralize so that they can further enhance their power, and eventually remake society into a Marxist hellhole “paradise.” And, when the patriotic rubes in the middle class-- and many of the Republicans who are supposed to represent them-- finally recognize what’s happening and decide to push back, the elites point at them and scream, “Radical right-wing extremist hate-monger(s)!”

Far-left taskmasters frame the narrative, in part by skillfully using every “crisis” to advance their agenda, while playing many in the national media as if they were the very rubes they love to mock. “Never let a crisis go to waste,” has long been their depraved motto, and they rarely leave a serviceable catastrophe behind. They have used the recent “pandemic” to get people accustomed to receiving money for not working, for calling many jobs and small businesses “non-essential,” and for forcing millions of workers to decide between their personal autonomy and continued employment. Now they are using vaccine mandates to do the same thing. What could go wrong?     

Back when politicians and heads of government occasionally spoke the truth, Winston Churchill noted: “The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings, the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”

Due to a broken educational system and a consequent lack of accurate historical knowledge, combined with the left’s embarrassing stranglehold on American media and most of its other institutions, roughly half of Americans are profoundly ignorant. This is enabling Democratic-Socialists to push independent thinkers into a virtual American Gulag-- and the United States itself towards an American Armageddon. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that we will someday soon become a larger version of Venezuela.  

The National Center for Constitutional Studies’ extraordinary book, “The 5,000 Year Leap: A Miracle that Changed the World,” was written by W. Cleon Skousen and should be required reading in every high school in the nation. It designates one chapter for each of 28 key principles of government in a free and virtuous republic. Among them:

 Principle 1 The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law. Natural law is God's law. There are certain laws which govern the entire universe, and just as Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, there are laws which govern in the affairs of men which are "the laws of nature and of nature's God."

Principle 2 A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong. "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." - Benjamin Franklin

 Principle 3 The most promising method of securing a virtuous people is to elect virtuous leaders.

"Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who ... will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man." - Samuel Adams

Principle 7 The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.

The Founders recognized that the people cannot delegate to their government any power except that which they have the lawful right to exercise themselves.

Principle 8 Mankind are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights.

"Those rights, then, which God and nature have established, and are therefore called natural rights, such as are life and liberty, need not the aid of human laws to be more effectually invested in every man than they are; neither do they receive any additional strength when declared by the municipal [or state] laws to be inviolable. On the contrary, no human legislation has power to abridge or destroy them, unless the owner [of the right] shall himself commit some act that amounts to a forfeiture." - William Blackstone

These are some of the principles on which the United States was founded. Principles 1 and 8 cannot be altered, whether or not we still believe in them. How are we doing on the others? Not so good on principle number 2. Our bad. As for principle number 3…Clinton, Obama and Biden have been the last three Democratic presidents. Kamala Harris may be the next. Which is unfortunate because today’s Democratic Party has literally reversed the revelatory wisdom in principle number 7.

America’s founding principles led to that 5,000-year leap which astounded the world.

The principles of today’s Democratic-Socialist Party, both domestically and abroad, instead of being “progressive,” will take us back towards a darker time.

Reparations For The Taliban?


Apparently, there is yet another group to which Americans should start paying reparations: the Taliban. Richard Burgon, a member of the British Parliament and the far-Left Labor party-- and Secretary of the Socialist Campaign Group of Labor MPs to boot, recently tweeted: “There is no military solution in Afghanistan. The focus now should be on reparations and supporting refugees.” Britain’s far-Left Stop the War Coalition also recently issued a statement demanding that the British government “take a lead in offering a refugee programme and reparations to rebuild Afghanistan.”      

On the left side of The Pond, Shabana Mir, an associate professor at American Islamic College in Chicago, recently opined, “The U.S. owes shitloads of reparations to Afghanistan.”

I might concur with limited reparations, if payments were going solely to those who have aided America and who the Biden administration’s spectacular incompetence and callousness has now put in grave danger. But the reality is that any “reparations,” aid, or money directed towards Afghanistan now or in the foreseeable future will end up in the hands of the already well funded Taliban.

Ms. Mir went on to state that the U.S. should have no say in how this money might be used, adding, “I have hopes that Afghans can build, if military contractors and the U.S. would get the hell out of the way.” Build what exactly? Those hopes are remarkably unfounded if the past, say, three or four-hundred years are anything to go by.

As an article in PJ Media stated, the Taliban already sports a billion-dollar budget as it is “and has no need of the largesse of British or American taxpayers.”

Moreover, President Non-Entity (Joe Biden)—whether accidentally or by design-- just made the Taliban into one of the world’s formidable fighting forces, generously supplying them with roughly 85 billion dollars in advanced armaments, including hundreds of thousands of firearms, pallets of ammo, as many as 75,000 vehicles, Black Hawk helicopters, up to 200 aircraft, night-vision goggles, drones, etc., etc.

That’s quite an upgrade for a group of savages who previously relied heavily on IEDs and white Toyota pick-up trucks.

Too bad the Taliban don’t believe in Christmas.    

There is one group deserving of reparations, however: the families of those American and British soldiers who lost their limbs or lives in the service of their country.

Pot Cultivation Spewing Greenhouse Gases Into The Atmosphere


Marijuana is one of the least “green,” most energy-intensive crops there is. That is the dirty little secret that no “woke” groups or climate terrorists wish to acknowledge. The recent surge in its acceptance, legality, and use, is, therefore, making it a rapidly growing source of greenhouse gases. Since pot is grown mostly indoors and requires special lighting and environmental controls that consume up to 2,000 watts of electricity per square meter, it is responsible for inordinately high levels of energy consumption. Like 40 times that needed to produce leafy greens such as lettuce. But, hey, you can’t smoke lettuce. (At any rate it is hard to keep lit.)     

How bad is pot cultivation for mother earth? Politico cited a research report titled, “Energy Use by the Indoor Cannabis Industry: Inconvenient Truths for Producers, Consumers, and Policymakers,” in which we learn that the ever-growing pot-growing industry is already responsible for over 1% of all electricity consumption in the United States. If true, that is a mind-blowing statistic. Think about it. Of all the myriad energy uses in existence, from air-conditioning and heating to televisions and refrigerators, to massive sports stadiums and concert halls, to 24-hour-a-day big-box grocery stores and downtown skyscrapers, to the military-industrial complex, etc., etc., growing pot uses one one-hundredth of all the electricity consumption in the U.S.?!! That’s like so rad! Or sad.

Politico recently provided several examples of the vast energy consumption currently required to grow marijuana:

*researchers estimate that ganja growing accounted for 10% of total industrial electricity consumption in Massachusetts last year.

*a study reported that the energy required to grow enough marijuana to make a single joint (one gram) was equivalent to the energy used to drive a fuel-efficient car 20 miles.

*a report out of Europe found that each average indoor pot-growing operation uses more power than 14 average homes.

Politico noted that the problem will only get worse as more states legalize wacky weed. Already over one third of the country—over 100 million people—live in states where pot is legal for those 21 and older. As more states legalize pot, the groundwork will be laid for the further skyrocketing of electricity consumption created by the new markets.

But, like, dude-- don’t harsh my mellow

University Of Pittsburgh Demands Fetal Part Equity


Dr. Mengele, I presume?          

Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress recently obtained documents, via a public records request, showing that the University of Pittsburgh received approximately $3 million from the National Institutes of Health to harvest fetal organs from aborted babies. The documents also show that the researchers promised to obtain 25 percent of the organs from aborted Black babies, in the interest of “inclusivity.”       

A summary issued by Judicial Watch noted that Pitt’s proposal called for 50% of its aborted “subjects” to be minority fetuses, even though U.S. Census Bureau data shows nearly 70% of Pittsburgh residents are white. The university’s deep concern for diversity in the harvesting of human fetal parts is touching. After all, who doesn’t like racial quotas, especially in such macabre endeavors?


CMP investigator David Daleiden put out a news release in which he stated: “The NIH grant application for just one of Pitt’s numerous experiments with aborted infants reads like an episode of American Horror Story. Infants in the womb, some old enough to be viable, are being aborted alive and killed for organ harvesting, in order to bring in millions of dollars in taxpayer funding for Pitt and the Planned Parenthood abortion business it supports.” Well, it’s not like the school has turned a blind eye to the practice of “misgendering” someone.


Speaking of gender, if males and females are indistinguishable at birth, then what does it matter if Pitt harvests organs from Black, brown, yellow, red, or white babies? Are they implying that organs from aborted Black babies will only work in Black people, and/or that organs from white babies are preferrable for use in whites? The same internal organs of any race are roughly the same color…and can’t be seen in any case, so why the 50 percent minority rule?     


Seems to me the Nazis, too, wanted to be “inclusive” as regards medical experiments, organ harvesting, and extermination. But I’m not sure they had specific percentages allocated amongst Jews, gays and lesbians, Communists, peoples of color, the handicapped, and assorted other “inferior” groups.


In the eyes of many “progressives,” the unvaccinated are the new Jews. Surely Pitt will soon determine that a given percentage of fetal organs for its “experiments” must also be “harvested” from unvaccinated mothers.


Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (D.I.E.). Pass it on.

"Female" Dehumanizing And Sexist?


Kenneth Moody-- a University of California, Santa Barbara student-- recently wrote an op-ed in the school’s Daily Nexus newspaper in which he argued that "female" is a “dehumanizing” and “sexist" term for women. Moody wrote: “The word 'female' needs to retire [because] it reaffirms our entire binary gender system. If we are to move toward a more inclusive society, then our language needs to change and stop equating being female to be a woman.”

Moody apparently attempted to somehow equate the terms “female” and “women” with “gay” and “homosexual.” He wrote: "The clinical terms of 'female' and 'homosexual,' when used in everyday conversation, give an impression that women and gay people are a different species from 'normal' cisgender and heterosexual men and therefore less human."

No, they don’t. Not in any way, shape or form.

“Female” gives the impression that females are different from—and complimentary to—male human beings, not a different species. If “female” was used to imply that women were less than “human,” the same would apply to the term “male.” If one wanted to (accurately) give the impression that some other person or group was a different species, the terms they would use would be those such as “pig,” “trout,” “horse,” or “ass.”           

Speaking of horse’s asses, Moody is one, though with less common sense. “Female” is sexist, in the same way that “male” is, the same way that calling a horse a horse is speciesist or calling any being, place, or thing what it is is determinist and judgmental. That is entirely the point, else chaos and confusion would reign supreme. “Male” is equally as sexist—or non-sexist-- as “female.”

Furthermore, Mr. Moody should know better than to use a term like “dehumanizing,” as it has “man” in it. That’s misogynistic. (Come to think of it, “male” contains the word “ma,” making me wonder if it is really a euphemism for “old lady,” and therefore also an example of appropriation.)

Oddly enough, Moody is not the first whacko to argue that “female” is a word with hidden nefarious meaning. Back in 2016, Time Magazine allowed UC Berkeley professor Robin Lakoff to soil its pages by opining that to equate a woman with a female is to “subtly downgrade her to a lower mammalian status, rather like calling a guy an ‘ape.'” No, its rather like equating a man with a male. How does “female” equate to “a lower mammalian status?” For that matter, how does either “male” or “female” equate to “ape?” After all, there are female apes and male apes.

In point of fact, most popular dictionaries still define a woman as an “adult female person.”

“Female,” “male,” and other terms for the two sexes are anything but “dehumanizing.” They are symbolic of why there are humans. What is dehumanizing is Leftists’ attempts to neutralize language and erase the distinction between men and women, while simultaneously emphasizing the differences between those of various skin colors and socio-economic classes.

Chanting "Death To America" In A Kinder, Gentler Way?


CNN’s Clarissa Ward is probably a decent person. I like to give folks the benefit of the doubt. As a journalist, she showed real courage reporting on the ground from Taliban-controlled Afghanistan as everything was “going to sh*t” as soldiers sometimes say. It can’t be fun to be in the chaos near large numbers of Taliban terrorists and insurgents, especially as a woman, since the Taliban have no compunctions about raping women and girls.

That said, during her reporting, Ward apparently uttered one of the dumbest things ever to come out of the mouth of a human being. And that is saying a lot. She noted of those around her, “They’re just chanting ‘Death to America,’ but they seem friendly at the same time.” This is a truly mind-boggling level of mental masturbation and denial. It is mindful of the CNN reporter who, with buildings on fire in back of him last summer, termed the BLM and Antifa rioters “mostly peaceful.” I mean, what the hell?

No “journalist” or reporter would ever say the same thing about, say, the Proud Boys, even if they were entirely peaceful and non-threatening, as they usually are. Trump supporters, white supremacists (if anyone ever finds any), bakers who refuse to make cakes for certain LGBTQ events, none of them would be afforded the same courtesy and benefit of the doubt. The vast majority of the “January 6 insurrectionists” really were peaceful, but that’s not how it was reported.

Whenever someone-- or some group—wishes the death of, or chants “Death to…” any other person or group, it is preposterous and insane to promptly say “they seem friendly.”

Let’s perform a simple mind exercise. If any group chanted “Death to Gays and Lesbians,” would Ms. Ward have immediately pointed out that “they seem friendly?” And, ironically, her friendly Taliban would not only chant “Death to Gays and Lesbians,” but actually do kill them at times.

If a group of people, many of whom sported AR-15s and other automatic weapons, were to chant “Death to Democrats,” “Death to Reporters,” or “Death to Non-Binary Bisexual Atheists,” would mainstream media members characterize them as “friendly” or “mostly peaceful?” What if they chanted “Death to Unborn Babies?” Oh, wait a minute, that one might pass muster.

On August 15th, Ward reported from Afghanistan wearing western clothing. On August 16th, she did her reporting while clad in a Hijab.  

What a difference a day makes.

And many thought Ronald Reagan was exaggerating when he said “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

We in the West have lost our way…and our marbles. Our “elites” are determined to see evil in everything we do, think, or say, yet refuse to see evil or bad intent in any other culture or clan. (Or themselves, for that matter.) They seem hell-bent on seeing to the destruction of the last, best hope of man on Earth.  

But they seem friendly. Not.

Biden Administration AWOL In Bad Episode Of "That 70s Show"


There is a scene in the movie Airplane! in which the pilot, co-pilot, and navigator are all rendered ill, unconscious and obviously incapable of directing the flight of a large aircraft full of people. At this time, a flight attendant gets on the plane’s P.A. system and calmly says, “There’s no reason to become alarmed. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?”

In light of the events of the past few months, one might well make a similar query: “Is there anyone in the Biden administration who knows how to avoid destroying the nation?” With disasters abounding and American esteem waning, the president and fellow “public servants” such as Nancy Pelosi seem to think the only real crisis would be if they ran out of ice cream.

As I wrote in an American Thinker post early on in the Biden presidency, it seems we are stuck in a rerun of “That 70s Show” while watching an episode of Welcome Back, Carter. Gas lines, hyper-inflation, malaise, military defeats…they’ve all returned. Yet Biden is on vacation at Camp David. One wonders if he has a bunker basement there in which to hide.    

It would be nice if our rulers in government were as accountable, transparent, and accessible as most folks in the private sector have typically been. We could start with the White House phone system:

“Good morning and thank you for calling the White House. If you know your party’s extension enter it now. Otherwise, press 1 for President Biden, press 2 for Vice-President Harris, press 3 for Press Secretary Psaki. Please note, however, that President Biden is currently on vacation, Vice-President Harris is out to lunch, and Press Secretary Psaki is ‘out of the office.’ Listen carefully to the following, as the menu options have recently changed. If you need to escape Kabul, press 1. If you are being held without charge because you took part in the January 6th insurrection attempt, there’s nothing anyone can do for you, but maybe try dialing ‘LAWYERS’ (muffled snort and guffaw heard.) The same goes if you fell from an airplane or helicopter trying to flee Kabul. If, however, you are looking to come across our southern border, there’s no need to ask permission or apply, just come right in. If you are trying to get ahold of Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, et. al., please dial 1-(800)-LOL-RINO.”

One has to laugh, or our current situation would be almost unbearable. But, sadly, the truth is that-- for several reasons-- things are worse now than they were at the end of the 1970s. President Carter, through his ineptitude, accidentally paved the way for Ronald Reagan to be elected president in 1980 and dramatically rally the country. Will there be a Reagan in 2024?

 Incredibly, at the rate things are going, the more pertinent question to ask might be, “Will there be an ‘America’ left to save in 2024.”
