Cornell University School Says It Perpetuates...Well, You Know


According to a statement posted on its own School of Integrative Plant Science’s website, Cornell University perpetuates “settler colonialism, indigenous dispossession, slavery, racism, classism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, antisemitism, and ableism.”

The statement appears to have been posted in March 2021 and is still up as of this writing. The School of Integrative Plant Science, or SIPS, is a division of Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

The statement is thought to have been generated by the SIPS “Diversity and Inclusion Council,” which was formed last October. The council also noted that it “recognizes that our institution was founded on and perpetuates various injustices.” The council’s vision statement reads: “We seek to address and repair the harms caused by these intersecting forms of oppression.”


A few thoughts: First, do we really now believe it’s a bad thing for a college or university to promote “ableism?” If we aren’t sending kids to college to become competent at something, why the hell are we sending them at all? What are we paying tens of thousands of dollars a year in tuition for?


Secondly, does it seem likely that the School of Integrative Plant Science is a hotbed of systemic settler colonialism, indigenous dispossession, slavery, racism, classism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, and antisemitism? How could that even be? And does it need its own Diversity and Inclusion Council, separate from Cornell’s? How many Diversity and Inclusion Councils does the school sport?


Finally, is stating that your school perpetuates settler colonialism, indigenous dispossession, slavery, racism, classism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, and antisemitism an effective recruiting tactic?


“Well, I was undecided between Cornell and Iowa State, but now that I’ve seen what its School of Integrative Plant Science says about it, I’m going to Cornell!”


Go Big Red!

Ohio School Board May Hide Transitioning, Transgender Students' Requests From Parents


An Ohio school board recently informed its teachers via email that they have no obligation to notify the parents if a transgender or transitioning student as young as 11 requests to be called by a different name or pronoun. This policy, understandably, didn’t sit well with parents when it was discovered…and led to a tense school board meeting.

The email, obtained by Parents Defending Education (PDE) and shared exclusively with Fox News Digital, stated in part: "If a student shares with a teacher what preferred name they would like to be called, and the student does not want it changed in IC or Google, there really is no need to go any further. That teacher can just use those preferred pronouns/name with the student and there is no need to share the info with any other staff member or family member unless the student would like additional support with this throughout the year.”

Really? If someone’s son or daughter decides to switch genders, it’s no big deal? So what if the parents are paying the teachers’ salaries through taxation, levies, referendums or even tuition? I mean, it’s really no big whoop if your daughter wants to become your son or vice-versa, right? Or if your offspring decides to identify as non-binary. Or as asexual or pansexual. Or as a Norwegian Elkhound, for that matter. Go with the flow! Love is love! I mean, it’s not like they’re refusing to wear a mask or sporting a “MAGA” hat. They may just want to switch sexes, so relax!

Honestly, I don’t think this policy goes far enough. I think schools should be able to totally facilitate students’ hormone therapy and sex-change operations without having to notify their buttinski-prone parents. Wouldn’t that make for some interesting parent-teacher conferences?!

Parent: “Hello.”

Teacher: “Hello. You must be Ms. Johnson. What are your pronouns?”

Parent: “What? Oh, ummm…she/hers, I guess. What did little Johnny do today?”

Teacher: “Well, Johnny is now Jenny. We swapped out his little penis for a vagina and some tiny titties today. Isn’t that exciting? They’s pronouns are they/them, so they is non-binary, but they wanted to make the genital change…so we went ahead and saw to it. They is resting comfortably in the hospital. Should be back at school in just a couple days.”

Parent (sputtering): “W-w-what?! I was never informed of any of this!!”

Teacher: “Oh, you would have like to have known? That’s weird…and against our policy. Sorry.”

PayPal Shuts Down Free Speech Union, Gays Against Groomers Accounts


PayPal this week shut down multiple accounts associated with groups critical of the transgender movement, including the U.K.-based Free Speech Union and the nonprofit Gays Against Groomers.

Is “transgender” another word for “fascist?” It sure seems like it lately, doesn’t it? It’s relatively safe to attack free speech these days, but canceling gays, too?! The “T” in LGBTQ is going after the “G.” And, apparently, will attempt to destroy anyone who gets in its way.

Gays Against Groomers recently put out a Twitter statement reading: "We have just been BANNED from @Venmo and @PayPal (within minutes of each other) for 'violating' their user agreements. The group added, "We are an organization that consists entirely of gay people whose only mission is to safeguard children from abuse,” and shared screenshots of emails from the payment processing companies.

The same day, the Telegraph reported that PayPal recently shut down the accounts of Free Speech Union, its founder Toby Young, and his opinion and news website the Daily Sceptic…all without a clear explanation. (Free Speech Union is a nonpartisan organization that opposes cancel culture and has defended academics—and others-- who have dared to criticize transgenderism, some of whom were actually fired for the crime of expressing their opinions.) What’s next? Will the power company shut off our electricity if it discovers we believe there are only two sexes, men and women? Will our bank accounts be frozen if the financial institution finds out we once cracked a joke about “Rachel Levine?” Will we be forcefully escorted to a re-education camp if we make it known we don’t want our young daughters changing in a locker room next to a “trans woman” swimmer who still has his original equipment?

The tyranny of the “woke” is getting entirely out of hand. When a tiny fraction of the population runs roughshod over the majority, you know two things: 1) the small minority is aggressive and unrelenting. 2) The majority is primarily composed of spineless, amoral beings who have been successfully indoctrinated into believing that tolerance of everything is preferrable to intolerance of anything.

Tyrannical Democrats Ironically Accuse Opponents Of Wanting To "End Our Democracy"


Isn't it ironic that the most power-hungry politicians in the most power-hungry party constantly accuse their opponents of wanting to destroy our democracy? If projection was an Olympic competition, they would win the gold medal in perpetuity.  

To wit: New York Governor Kathy Hochul recently spoke at a rally for Democrat congressional candidate Pat Ryan. Naturally, she seized the opportunity to smear Marc Molinaro, Ryan’s opponent, and Lee Zeldin, her own gubernatorial opponent, as well as Donald J. Trump.

Hochul exclaimed to those in attendance: “We’re here to say that the era of Trump and Zeldin and Molinaro – just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong. OK? Get out of town. Because you don’t represent our values.”

Because nothing screams “democracy” like chasing your political opponents out of town. Yay tolerance! Yay diversity!

But the Wicked Witch of the East wasn’t done yet. She told New York’s conservatives, if in absentia, “You’re not New Yorkers, because we come from a long line of people who fought for women’s rights that happened here first.” This raises the timeless question, “Huh?” A person is only a New Yorker if they agree with Governor Hochul and her radically progressive globalist agenda? And the fight for women’s rights first occurred in New York? London, Amsterdam, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia…all were diametrically opposed to women coming out of the bedroom or kitchen?

To wit, again: Colorado’s Secretary of State, Jena Griswold (no relation to Clark), granted an interview to England’s far left newspaper The Guardian in which she intimated that, if Americans don't vote for Democrats, they will lose their democracy. Well, duh.

Griswold said, “What we can expect from the extreme Republicans running across this country is to undermine free and fair elections for the American people, strip Americans of the right to vote, refuse to address security breaches and, unfortunately, be more beholden to Mar-a-Lago than the American people.” (To the extent Americans are beholden to Mar-a-Lago, its because its owner is beholden to them. As for “security breaches,” see the open southern border.)

She then humbly added, “For us, we are trying to save democracy.”

Of course they are. But leftists don’t believe you and I are “fighting for democracy” unless we agree with them. On everything. Always.

It is rich that the party that has routinely contested elections-- and lied, cheated, bribed, and stolen in an attempt to win them—is accusing Republicans of being anti-freedom.  

If these radical left Democrats believed in God, they would believe He put them on this earth not to have dominion over the animals, but to have dominion over all other humans, especially those that believe they have inherent natural rights granted by their Creator.

Ironic or insane? That’s an easy one: either or both are correct.

And yet we conservatives don’t demand that all those with whom we disagree move to Massachusetts, Minnesota, Illinois, California, Oregon…or New York.

It takes a special kind of chutzpah for a political party to dramatically expand the powers of the executive when it is in power, wish to add two new states (Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico) that would be certain to vote for its candidates, and threaten to pack the court and eliminate the filibuster—all while accusing its lone political rival of being anti-democratic.

It would be best for the nation—and the majority of Americans—if these progressive Democrats would “get out of town.”

Especially Washington, D.C.

AOC Claims Capitalism Is Depressing Birth Rates


Democratic-Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York recently claimed, in a video posted to social media, that birth rates are dropping because of capitalism…and that more immigration was the only possible solution to keep the social safety net intact.

The ditzy one stated: "You take a look at it, there are, and it's not just Japan and South Korea, there are quite a few countries that are really struggling because young people under the burdens of capitalism and living under a society that's increasingly concentrating wealth among the rich, we're not having kids, and we're not having kids at the same rate.” She added,

"And we actually need immigrant populations to help balance things out. We can't continue to fund Social Security, Medicare, all of this stuff without immigrants and it's always been that way. Don't act like it's some new trend or anything like that."

The truth is exactly the opposite, of course, as any student of history (and/or economics) knows. Literally billions of peoples’ lives have been greatly improved by the advent of free market capitalism and private ownership of the means of production. There are “quite a few countries that are really struggling.” Take a look at Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela, for example, all Socialist-Marxist-communist. Communist countries have historically fared so badly that every single one of them still in existence has had to introduce capitalist market reforms into their economies.

In reality, providing medical care and a vast array of other services, mostly gratis, to those in the tsunami-like wave of illegal aliens has put a tremendous strain on our social safety net, our budget, our legal system, our border towns and states. Hell, homogenously wealthy Martha’s Vineyard claims it doesn’t have the infrastructure or resources to deal with 50—count them, 50—migrants. Why do the Beltway elites think that these border states should have to process and take care of millions of migrants a year?

Aw, well, let the taxpayers pay for them with the money they’ve made by the grace of capitalism.

And why aren’t young people having kids, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez? It’s not because of capitalism or unequally shared wealth. It’s because they don’t want to be bothered with them, are loathe to commit the money and time to raise them, don’t hold religious beliefs, or believe climate change will soon render the Earth essentially uninhabitable. So they either use contraception or abort the babies they’ve conceived.

Members of “The Squad”—and everyone else that purports to favor Socialism/Marxism/communism—need to learn the lessons of history. In short, and in lingo they might understand: communism sucks, capitalism rocks. Capitalism always provides a more vibrant economy and a better standard of living than a command economy. Period.

When a nation’s economy is good and people have money and are confident that this will also be the case in the future, they tend to have more kids. When a nation’s economy is bad and people are destitute and have little hope for a more prosperous future, they tend to have fewer children.

And here is a bonus lesson: Ignorance + entitlement + arrogance = societal collapse.

Sadly, we are living in a society that’s increasingly concentrating idiocy among the elites.

FBI Now Believes Patriots Are Likely "Domestic Terrorists"


An FBI whistleblower recently provided Project Veritas with a document that shows how the Bureau classifies American citizens it deems to be potential “Militia Violent Extremists,” or MVEs.

The leaked document cites symbols, images, phrases, and events that the Bureau says agents should look out for when attempting to identify domestic terrorists.

The “Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive” form is marked for “FBI Internal Use Only.”

What kind of things would brand an American citizen as a possible terrorist threat? A stated belief in the Second Amendment, for one.  Sometimes simply expressed as “2A.” A portion of the “Symbols” section of the document is given over to explaining that “MVEs justify their existence with the Second Amendment, due to the mention of a ‘well-regulated Militia,’ as well as the right to bear arms.” So, it has come to this: cherishing the freedoms bequeathed to us via the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the very documents meant to protect us from tyrannical government, is now seen by our government as a likely indication that one is a “domestic terrorist.” Talk about coming full circle!

Under the “Commonly Referenced Historical Imagery and Quotes” section, iconic Revolutionary War images symbolic of our hard-won freedom and independence-- such as the Gadsden Flag and the Betsy Ross Flag-- are listed… along with a brief description of what the FBI thinks it means. (Preposterously, the Bureau seemingly purports to believe that Revolutionary War imagery is part of the so-called “MVE” world.)

What other things might be symbols indicating the presence of a Militia Violent Extremist? Let me hazard a guess: the American flag (Old Glory), an “I Like Ike” button, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, “Mom” tattoos, a baseball bat, red baseball caps, American flag pins, a “Big Mac™” or “Whopper™,” Jason Aldean CDs, an “I NASCAR” bumper sticker, bass boats, a “Thin Blue Line” flag, “All Lives Matter” signs/banners, any Christian symbol such as a cross or Rosary beads, a Chick-fil-a menu, a “My Pillow,” and a belief in inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator.

In short, anything traditionally patriotic or overtly Christian. This is obviously intentional. Everything that made America the freest, most prosperous-- and most grateful-- society in history is under assault. And anything and anyone that illustrates pride in that fact.

But it isn’t just patriotism, Christianity, and pride in country that is being questioned, mocked, and punished. Competence, self-restraint, discipline, dignity, and success are being attacked as part of what amounts to a “white patriarchal” conspiracy. As always, leftists are trying to cancel truth itself, as evidenced by their belief in an infinite number of genders.

This is all being done with one goal in mind: to strip us of our freedoms, thereby granting the elites’eternal power. Because, ultimately, when all the aforementioned has been accomplished, freedom will be impossible for the rest of us. We will be nothing more than livestock, soulless and hopeless robots, wards of the massive state, ignorant, amoral…and destitute in every way imaginable.

We have a duty—a moral obligation—to prevent this from happening. To those that came before us, that fought and died for our freedoms…and to all those that come after.

No matter your skin color, your gender, your nationality, your religious belief, or your sexual orientation. You see, identity politics and intersectionality are the opposite of e plurubus unum, meaning “out of many…one.” Rather than doing any good for anyone or any group, they are virtually certain to divide and ultimately destroy this nation…or any nation that tolerates this poison.   

I have a Gadsden flag prominently displayed. How about you?

Of course, it will take far more courage than this to prevail in our struggle against a government leviathan determined to put us in our place once and for all.

The Founders possessed that courage. Do we?








Biden Administration Pressuring FBI To "Find" Crimes Committed By Political Opponents


Several current and former members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have come forward recently to tell the Washington Times that the Biden administration is pressuring FBI agents to “find” crimes that justify President Joe Biden’s repulsive characterization of conservatives and Trump supporters (“MAGA Republicans”) as “domestic terrorists” and “semi-fascists.” The allegations follow Biden’s infamous “Battle for the Soul of the Nation” diatribe rant speech, delivered ironically at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, in which he demonized roughly half the nation as threats to “the very foundations of our republic.”

This attempted weaponization of the FBI is, of course, itself a threat to the very foundations of the republic and is part and parcel with Biden’s recent fascistic rhetoric and his—or his handler’s-- selection of a backdrop for the Philadelphia speech that might have made Hitler blush. The blood red (and yet very dark) set was outlandishly intimidating and authoritarian. In fact, it looked like something out of the Third Reich or Dante’s Inferno. Or a combination of the two. And Biden has the gall to slander his political opponents by calling them “semi-fascists!”

Projection and gaslighting are now Democrats’ two favorite tactics. This, combined with worship of the LGBTQ community and abortion—and hatred of capitalism, traditional values, and their political opponents—is all they have. So, they practice them incessantly. (Too many low information voters—as well as highly indoctrinated college graduates-- fall prey to these tactics and mindless obsessions.)

Unfortunately, this is not the first time an administration has used a government agency to target its political opponents. (See also the IRS scandal, etc.) This is, however, the first time a president has used multiple (FBI, DOJ, CIA, DOD, etc.) government agencies to target his political opponents and their supporters—while also viciously and publicly smearing them via a speech to the nation.

Biden’s unhinged and unglued attack on nearly half of his country’s citizens is unhelpful, undignified, and unprecedented. Blaming MAGA Republicans for his—and his nation’s—ills is eerily reminiscent of Nazis scapegoating the Jews. That he has instructed the FBI, et. al., to go after his opponents and their supporters is truly chilling.

One might even say it is a threat to “the very foundations of our republic.”

And, in this case, one would be right.

The ACLU Now Supports The Chemical Castration Of Kids


The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has in the past vociferously opposed the administration of a drug to chemically castrate convicted sex offenders, is now staunchly advocating the use of drugs as puberty blockers to chemically castrate “trans” children. These positions are, of course, precisely the opposite of those any sane person would hold.


Not too long ago, Randall Marshall, former Executive Director of the ACLU of Alabama, called the practice of chemical castration “medical experimentation,” adding that it “has no basis in the medical community.” Period.

Nonetheless, today, the ACLU-- and many Democrats-- purport to believe that chemically castrating convicted criminal sex offenders is cruel and that not chemically castrating young kids is also cruel. Try and wrap your mind around that.

This tracks with the progressive view of the death penalty vis-à-vis abortion. The late, great writer and “investigative humorist” P.J. O’Rourke put it best: “…consider how much you’d have to hate free will to come up with a political platform that advocates killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers. A callous pragmatist might favor abortion and capital punishment. A devout Christian would sanction neither. But it takes years of therapy to arrive at the liberal view.”

California Resorts To "Abortion Tourism"


Some things are more preposterous than others. Ghoulish, too.

Take, for example, the fact that California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) recently announced that his reelection campaign has paid for numerous billboards (in seven other states) promoting abortion tourism. That’s right, Gruesome Newsome has taken it upon himself to protest those states’ conservative policies restricting abortion by asking them to come to the formerly Golden State to kill their babies. Possibly more repulsive yet, some of the billboards sport a passage from the New Testament: “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31). Huh? I mean, WTH?!

Newsom has made abortion a primary focus of his campaign and is attempting to expand his message to a nationwide audience-- by touting California as a destination for those denied abortions elsewhere.

Newsome announced the billboards on Twitter thusly:

“NEW: Just launched billboards in 7 of the most restrictive anti-abortion states that explain how women can access care--no matter where they live. To any woman seeking an abortion in these anti-freedom states: CA will defend your right to make decisions about your own health.”

California will defend women’s right to make decisions about their own health??!!! How dare he say that-- or label any other state as “anti-freedom. How. Dare. He.

Women in California weren’t able to opt out of getting injected—multiple times—by an experimental mRNA “vaccine” that neither protects them from getting nor transmitting COVID-19. (However, the vaccine might wreak havoc on women’s menstrual cycles and terminate their pregnancies, so that part makes sense.) And many women were not allowed out of their house during the pandemic (Nancy Pelosi was a notable exception), giving California something in common with certain Middle Eastern nations.  Of course, when women in many urban areas of Newsome’s state do go outside, they are fairly likely to step in human excrement…or be assaulted, robbed or shot.

And they may not be allowed to use electricity at certain times. Or buy a gasoline-powered vehicle. If the leftist whackos have their way, soon they may not be able to eat a cheeseburger.

Abortion tourism?! Really? We are in the final stages of decay.

 “Come to California to exterminate your baby at our famous abortion mills! Oh, and while you’re here, you may want to visit Hollywood, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Yosemite National Park.”

The governor of the erstwhile Land of Milk and Honey is trying to bring money to his rapidly deteriorating state by marketing the mass death of babies.

And, sickeningly, I bet he sleeps like one.

California: the Land of Clamps and Forceps.

Democrats Believe Projection Plus Gaslighting Equals Victory


Democrats, as evidenced by the Biden administration, clearly believe that projection plus gaslighting equals victory (P+G=V). Victory, of course, means power. And there is nothing more important to Democrats than power. Period.


Democratic strategist number 1: “What don’t we want voters to know about us?”

Democratic strategist number 2: “That we are semi-fascist authoritarians bent on destroying our opponents…and our nation. And that we are a ‘threat to our democracy.’”

Democratic strategist number 1: “So what do we do about this?”

Democratic strategist number 2: “We tell them that Republicans are semi-fascist authoritarians bent on destroying Democrats…and our nation. And that they are a ‘threat to our democracy.’”

Democrats in unison: “Brilliant!”

And, sadly, it works.


President Biden (speech given September 1):

“Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic…

“…But there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans. And that is a threat to this country…

“…And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election, and they’re working right now as I speak in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.” Etc., etc., ad infinitum. 

President Biden’s Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre (September 2): “And so for him [Biden}, this was not a political speech.” Say what?!

President Biden also recently said there was “zero inflation” in July just hours after federal Consumer Price Index data showed an inordinately high annual inflation rate of 8.5%.

And remember, the summer long riots of 2020 were “mostly peaceful.” (Don’t pay any attention to the looted stores, burning buildings and police cars, or the innocent people being assaulted.) But January 6 was an insurrection and a catastrophe on the order of 9/11, Pearl Harbor, or the Civil War.

Don’t you understand yet? You didn’t see what you saw, didn’t hear what you heard. And you shouldn’t believe what you believe.

Or you are an extremist, a semi-fascist, a terrorist, a threat to our democracy…and freedom everywhere.

The United States is not riven by “systemic racism,” at least not in the manner progressives claim it is. But there are “systemic” problems afflicting the nation. The systemic ignorance, foolishness, and naivete of a large part of the electorate, and the systemic prevarication, hypocrisy-- and rising authoritarianism-- on the part of the (formerly) Democratic Party.

Biden and his ilk have essentially decriminalized crime-- and criminalized conservatism, traditional Christianity, and the founding values and principles of the nation they lead. It is they who have launched attacks on everything American, attacks on language, attacks on morality.

As President Trump has noted, it is an attack on you. It is an attack on me. And anyone with whom they disagree.

Ultimately, it is an attack on reality itself.

It is heinous and it is evil.

It is no coincidence that the backdrop for Biden’s “Battle for the Soul of the Nation” speech, ironically delivered in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, would have been much more fitting for a crazed polemic emanating from the mouths of Hitler or Mussolini.


You decide.

New York Times Congressional Correspondent: If Republicans Take The House, It May Send The World Into A Tumultuous Tailspin


The New York Times, the erstwhile “newspaper of record,” has yet again proven that it has degenerated into a partisan rag suitable only for wrapping fish or lining a bird cage.

The Gray Lady’s congressional correspondent, Jonathan Weisman, stated via a recently published report that, if Republicans take over the House this fall, it may well send the country-- and even the world-- into a tumultuous tailspin. The unwise man wrote, "It could also mean that the government will struggle to perform such mundane tasks as keeping itself from defaulting on its debt and plunging the global financial system into chaos." (And that would be a real shame because it’s so stable now.)

Weisman added, "At the same time, a Republican-led stream of impeachments, as some lawmakers have promised for the attorney general, the homeland security secretary, the education secretary and the president, could serve as an endless string of distractions for the executive branch."

Yes, it would be a disaster to have impeachment talk or proceedings distract the president from his sworn duty to tend to the people’s business! Who ever heard of such a thing? What kind of hyper-partisan ghouls would put the nation through this?

No one is this dumb or unaware. (Not even the Times’ own Jonathan Weisman or Paul Krugman.) Weisman knows that Democrats have spent the past half-decade baselessly smearing and impeaching President Trump. And baselessly attacking members of the Supreme Court with whose decisions they disagree. And threatening to end the filibuster, make the District of Columbia a state, and pack the court…purely because it would give them unchecked power, precisely what the founders wanted to guard against. He knows that the government is, if anything, more likely to default on the national debt when Democrats are in charge than when they aren’t. And that Democrat policies are far more likely to plunge the global financial system into chaos. He knows the stock market tends to perform better under Republican leadership and that inflation tends to be less of a problem. He knows that our enemies respect—and fear—us far less than they did just two years ago, when a Republican was in power. And he knows that made us less likely to engage in war.  Moreover, he has to know that Democrat policies and attitudes have plunged our borders and cities into violence, despair…and chaos.

No one in Weisman’s position is this dumb or unaware.

No, this is brilliantly evil use of projection and gaslighting, and something Republicans never seem to be able to grasp, let alone overcome. Which is precisely why we need non-establishment “radical” Republicans (who are not just going to go along to get along) to win elections and retake the House. This is the only way to save the republic. We need bold, courageous-- and principled-- leaders who care more about the country and the people who elected them than about getting along with the press and retaining their country club rights and privileged cocktail party status. We need true public servants like our founders, conservatives by today’s standards-- but classical liberals then-- who were considered “dangerous radicals” by the bewigged and powdered dandies of the English establishment.

People, in other words, utterly unlike Jonathan Weisman.

Sanctuary Cities? Not So Much


Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been vociferously complaining recently about the influx of asylum seekers utilizing homeless shelters and other city services since Texas started busing migrants to the Capitol City. Bowser called the migrant issue "significant" and said she is urging a coordinated federal response to the crisis. She is further claiming that migrants are being "tricked" into boarding buses to Washington. Bowser called for a Coordinated response from the Biden administration to deal with the situation, prompting Fox News host Pete Hegseth to note the irony, as that is what Republicans have been calling for since Biden took office and did away with many of Donald Trump's border security policies.

 Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker recently went so far as to issue an emergency disaster proclamation after hundreds of asylum seekers arrived in Chicago via bus from Texas.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently said that the city is at a "breaking point" due to thousands of migrants who have been sent by bus from Texas in recent weeks. Really? The city survived the pandemic lockdowns and 9/11, which knocked down the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and killed nearly 3,000 people, but a few thousand illegal immigrants are on the verge of destroying it? How does Adams think border states like, say, Texas feel, dealing with the influx of hundreds of thousands of illegals each year under the Biden administration—of the more than 5 million that have entered the United States since Biden took office?

Incredibly, Washington, D.C. and New York are self-proclaimed sanctuary cities (for illegals)—and Illinois touts itself as a sanctuary state.

They’re not particularly good at being sanctuaries, are they? Busing immigrants to Florida, sending them back to Texas, etc., and publicly proclaiming: “Crisis! We can’t handle them! You must deal with them, not us!” Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat. In this case, as in others, they are decrying the inevitable results of their own policies and blaming it on Republicans.

I can declare my abode to be a “sanctuary” for homeless crack addicts or fired CNN employees, but, if I forcefully send them elsewhere when they show up, it doesn’t mean much, does it? No, this is just another hollow gesture from a group of hypocritical, virtue signaling, empty suits-- entitled wannabe heroes drunk on power.

Would that there were a sanctuary city—or state—for conservatives. And those of us sick of Democrats’ prevarication, projection, gaslighting, hyperbole, hypocrisy, and hoaxes.

The NIH Allegedly Deleted Coronavirus Data At China's Request


According to a report in, the National Institute of Health (NIH) deleted certain sequences of coronavirus data from the agency’s Sequence Read Archive. This was allegedly done early in the pandemic, at the request of Chinese researchers. Doctor Jesse Bloom, a virologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, published a study in June of 2021 that identified the missing sequences and recovered the files from the Google Cloud, from which he performed an analysis to learn more about the origins of the virus.

Why was the data deleted? NIH FOIA officer Gorka Garcia-Malene wrote: “Exemption 6 mandates the withholding of information that if disclosed ‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’ 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(6). Exemption 6 was applied here due to the heightened public scrutiny with anything remotely related to COVID-19.” Huh? “Heightened public scrutiny” of China’s role in the pandemic would be a good thing, though maybe not for the NIH.

Garcia-Malene also claimed, "If released, this type of information could be used by the public to send threatening and harassing messages.” To whom?

And then came the Orwellian Whopper. Garcia-Malene stated that the information needed to be redacted "because of the amount of misinformation surrounding the pandemic and its origins."

Talk about preposterous! As independent journalist Paul Thacker aptly put it: "Seriously, the NIH is now arguing in court that because there is so much misinformation about how the pandemic began, they can’t release facts that might clear up misinformation about how the pandemic began.”

The only thing that can counteract misinformation is accurate information.

Logically, it follows that’s report—and Thacker’s analysis-- was accurate…and that the NIH is trafficking in misinformation. And perhaps has been compromised by the Chinese Communist Party?





Scientific American Magazine Claims Western Science "Invented" The Two-Sex Model


Science isn’t what it used to be. And I don’t mean because Dr. Fauci is getting old and is about to retire.

(Yet another) Case in point: Scientific American magazine, a once respected monthly, recently put out a bizarre series of tweets effectively suggesting that earlier Western scientists just concocted the idea of two sexes…to serve the interests of the white supremacist patriarchy.

The magazine’s preposterous assertions were part of a Twitter thread decrying the notion of binary sexual identity in a pathetic attempt to get in lockstep with the transgender agenda and curry favor with woke supremacist whackos. After all, what is science for?

One of the tweets read: "Before the late 18th century, Western science recognized only one sex—the male—and considered the female body an inferior version of it. The shift historians call the 'two-sex model' served mainly to reinforce gender and racial divisions by tying social status to the body.”

Those assertions would make the Babylon Bee blush. Western science always recognized the existence of females. Good thing, too, or a lot of us wouldn’t be here now. Ironically, it’s the trans activists—supported by entities like the Scientific American—that no longer recognize women. They can’t or won’t make the distinction and allow females their own sports teams, locker rooms, and bathrooms.

Scientific American’s website says the magazine “…is also well-known for its constant accuracy in anticipating advances and leaps on a broad range of topics within both the physical and social sciences. This monthly magazine dynamically presents the remarkable efforts of world-renowned scientists and Nobel laureates.” Constant accuracy? It is now far too concerned with making broad leaps in “social sciences” to worry about being accurate. (Sorry, my use of the term “broad” there might have been problematic.)

Someone once said, “’She blinded me with science’ and failed me in biology.” Now it is the scientists and “experts” who try to blind us…and who are failing biology.

As Ben Shapiro stated in reply to Scientific American’s extremely unscientific tweets: “The hijacking of science to parrot pure and absolute nonsense is just amazing.”

Scientists from Aristotle to Einstein recognized the two sexes.

Unfortunately, they wouldn’t recognize what passes for “science” today.

Nightclub Bans Staring Without Prior Consent


Club 77, a nightclub in Sydney, Australia, has banned staring at another patron without consent. Its managers will call the police if a customer stares at others without getting their consent. The establishment also asked clubbers not to darken its doors if the "sole purpose" for their night out is to meet someone to "pick up.”

What a fun venue!

In an Instagram post, the club said "safety officers"-- in pink vests-- would enforce the new anti-staring rules. It also noted it wanted to be a “safe space.”

“Safety officers”… in “pink vests?” Is Club 77 a gay bar? Sounds like a Freddie Mercury fantasy. Does it continually play songs by Queen and The Village People over its sound system? What happens if one stares at the “safety officers?”

“Oh, Mr. safety officer, I’ve been bad and need to be punished!”

But, seriously, what a load of crap. Who decides what constitutes staring? In what direction, how intensely, for how long? And what if someone is wearing a mask? No one could tell if that person was smiling, leering, sneering, or anything else. And what if that person were blind?

Will bars and nightclubs in the formerly Wild West soon throw patrons out if they call someone “baby,” “sweetie,” or “hon?” Will the proper authorities be called if one patron winks at another without prior, express written consent? What if they accidentally graze another in a crowded bar? Will a partially stifled belch attract the attention of management?

It is exceedingly hard to believe what has happened to Western nations in recent years due to otherwise decent peoples’ extreme and unwarranted tolerance of the authoritarian-- and spectacularly intolerant-- left. Australia began as a penal colony, for crying out loud.

And so it is again. But one whose wardens sport pink vests—and whose inmates have glanced in someone’s direction without prior approval.

Ergo, intimate nightclub conversations will now go something like this: “Would you please sign this document stating unequivocally that I have the right to gaze approvingly in your direction, at least for tonight at this particular venue?”

And they say romance is dead!
