New Poll Finds 20% Of Young Americans Think The Holocaust Is A Myth


A new YouGov/Economist poll reveals that more than 20% of Americans aged 18-29 believe the Holocaust is a “myth” or “has been exaggerated.” An additional 30% say they aren’t certain whether or not the 20th-century genocide actually occurred. That means over half of this age group either doesn’t believe the Holocaust really happened, thinks it to be exaggerated—or isn’t sure if it was real or not.

As The Economist reports, ”Young people are nearly five times more likely to think this than those aged 65 and older.” What a shocking and brutal indictment of our modern educational system.

This is what happens when history—real history, not revisionist—is no longer taught. It has real-world, real-time consequences. As the old saying goes, “If you don’t know history, you are bound to repeat it.” And, in this case, that is catastrophic.     

In this time of hoaxes, hyper-wokeness, and extreme ignorance, we might well ask: “What else do younger folks (and leftists) think is a ‘myth,’ and what do they believe to be fact?”

Myth VS. Fact, 2023 Edition--

Myth: Holocaust.

Fact: Christian nationalism is surging!

Myth: There are only two sexes.

Fact: There are only two types of people, oppressors and oppressed!

Myth: The content of one’s character should trump the color of one’s skin.

Fact: White people are racist because of their skin color.

Myth: The massive and lengthy riots of 2020 caused billions of dollars in damage and thousands of injuries.

Fact: Jan. 6 was an all-out “insurrection”--  fomented and led by Donald trump-- whose participants deserve to languish in dingy jail cells until the sun expires.

Myth: God.

Fact: Dr. Fauci and George Floyd are God-like figures.

Myth: Smoking pot is bad for you.

Fact: Smoking cigarettes is bad for you.

Myth: Unfettered illegal immigration is bad for the country.

Fact: Invasive species are an unmitigated disaster for the country and must be fought tooth and nail at every turn……or all of our beloved native species will be permanently pushed out.

              Here’s to the future!

Pantone Announces Its "Color Of The Year"


This just in: according to Fox News, Pantone has officially crowned PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz as its 2024 Color of the Year!

In a press release, the New Jersey company characterized the shade as a "velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body and soul.” Pantone added that the color is a “warm and cozy shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others and the feeling of sanctuary this creates; PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz presents a fresh approach to a new softness.”

But that’s not all! The company also wanted everybody to know that its COTY is "subtly sensual,” and “a heartfelt peach hue bringing a feeling of tenderness and communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration."

And even that was not enough. Pantone was compelled to opine that during this "time of turmoil in many aspects of our lives," the need for "nurturing, empathy and compassion grows ever stronger, as does our imaginings of a more peaceful future."

Pantone executives characterized the COTY as a "cozy peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange,” and claimed it “enriches the soul.”

Gentle, warm, and all-embracing? Nurturing, sensual, tender, and soft? Sounds like it should be the official color of today’s U.S. military.

Mob Packs Seattle Community Meeting To Argue Against Kids' Playground


According to The Seattle Times, “Hundreds of people packed a Seattle community meeting” recently “to oppose a proposal by the city to build a kids play area at a beach park known for decades as a nude hangout, especially for LGBTQ+ folks.”

The crowd was passionate, determined not to let a children’s playground be built so close to Denny Blaine Park, a nude LGBTQ beach.

To spare the kids seeing the nude bathers? Perish the thought! Virtually all of the crowd, “so large it spilled into the street outside the MLK FAME Community Center,” was there to defend the beach from kids—and the prudes that might not like them being so close to public displays of nudity.

The Times noted that many in the mob “held signs with messages like ‘Don’t Displace Historic And Diverse Community,’ ‘Gay Buns Over Shady Funds’ and ‘Save Denny Blaine.’”

The children’s park was pitched as a privately funded project that would address a playground deficit in the Denny Blaine neighborhood without spending public money. This in no way moved the meeting attendees, many of whom spoke against the project. Incredibly, not a single soul spoke in favor of it. More than 8,500 people have signed an online petition opposing the project. Speakers described the existing beach park as a precious place where queer and trans people can be themselves…while expressing concern that, should the kids’ play area go forward, they may be cited for indecent exposure—or otherwise be made to feel uncomfortable.

One speaker stated that he views the playground as a ploy, saying “It’s hard to even come up with a different reason beyond the one that feels most obvious, which is that this is someone trying to shut down the nude beach.” (Unless it is an attempt to address the playground deficit and give kids more space to……be kids.) He, oops, “they,” went on to compare the proposed project to banning books with LGTBQ+ themes from kids. (Quite the contrary, it would put them in close proximity to LGBTQ+ “themes.”) And, for the pièce de résistance, “they” exclaimed, “This is kind of the weaponization of children to try to exclude or harm the queer community. This is just another example.” (The “weaponization of children” to “harm the queer community?!” Sorry, pal, but precisely the inverse is too often the case.)

Another attendee said, “You come here on a peak summer day and there are people laying around everywhere. Getting to see other people be comfortable in their bodies in a community that sometimes has problems with that is really special. … Being queer here is normal.” (Right, so being straight there is “queer?”) 

Still another solemnly-- if preposterously-- averred: “Being nude at Denny Blaine quite literally saved my life.” (I don’t even want to know why this person believes this.)


Postscript: In one of the most predictable decisions in the history of decisions, Seattle Parks and Recreation leaders decided not to proceed with the kids’ playground.

Empire State Building Lights Up In Honor Of Qatar


On December 17th, those in charge of the Empire State Building proudly announced on X: “Tonight from midnight until sunrise, we will shine in burgundy and white to celebrate Qatar National Day.” Qatar, via a 2016 purchase agreement, currently owns 9.9 percent of the iconic American structure. Nonetheless, this seems in particularly bad taste given the nation’s links to Hamas, the terrorist organization that slaughtered more than 1,000 Jews on October 7th.

Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashal, two of Hamas’ top leaders, were caught on video gleefully watching reports of the Hamas massacres, and subsequently prostrating themselves in prayers of gratitude to Allah for the killing of the infidels. They were in a plush office in Doha, the capital of Qatar, at the time.

Moreover, Hamas’ Political Bureau has been located in Doha since 2012. Reuters recently reported that “a bipartisan group of 113 U.S. lawmakers” recently sent a letter to President Biden asking him to put pressure on countries who support Hamas-- including Qatar-- noting that “The country’s links to Hamas...are simply unacceptable.”

I dare say Americans are getting tired of hearing of the sale—of all or part—of American landmarks, companies, ports, farmland, and other properties. And the celebration of entities that despise us.

What’s next? Will One World Trade Center light up in honor of Saudi Arabia some night soon?

Have You Ever Noticed...?


Have you ever noticed that the same people are always wrong about everything? Al Gore, Michael Moore, Greta Thunberg, “The Squad,” Joy Reid, etc., etc., et. al. Whether it be global warming, Hamas/terrorists/Iran, transgender mutilation, abortion, Marxism vis-à-vis free market Capitalism, ubiquitously intrusive vs. limited government, separation of church and state (as opposed to separation of LGBTQ and state, for example), green energy, big vs. small business, First and Second Amendment rights, the border/illegal immigration, etc., ad infinitum. It’s almost uncanny!

They usually profess to know a lot about one…or maybe two…issues, but are certain they are right on all the rest, too. And will let you know it. And they seem to congregate together at every opportunity. How do they find each other? Is there a secret code? (I’m not speaking here of famous types like Al, Michael, or Greta, but of your ultra-progressive neighbors…and culture warriors across the fruited plain—and all Western nations.)

Makes sense, I guess, as they tend to like groups more than any individual. To them, groupthink is good, individualism bad. Why? Probably because doing research and drawing their own conclusions is difficult. Thinking on one’s own —and going against the “progressive” flow (or any flow for that matter) requires a certain amount of intelligence, wisdom, confidence, and even courage. Many of them can’t cut it, and it makes them bitter. It’s easier to attack those that can, in the basest manner, by accusing them of being racist, homophobic, misogynistic, bigoted, transphobic, etc.

Ironically, this virtue signaling is itself primitive: me good, you bad!

But, remarkably, they proudly display their ignorance and arrogance, a comically repulsive combo that could be truly dangerous if left unchallenged.

The good news? If you haven’t had time to develop a considered opinion on any given issue, just go against theirs. You’ll almost certainly be on the side of the angels.

Democrats A True Threat To Our Democracy/Representative Republic


Biden and many other Democrats incessantly claim that “MAGA” types are a threat to “our democracy.” This is preposterous on its face. No learned, rational person would fall for this notion. MAGA types, Trump supporters and other conservatives) are generally people proud of their nation and is founding principles. They have an abiding belief in what the U.S. has traditionally stood for: individual rights, impartial justice under the rule of law, a jury of one’s peers, the concept of innocent until proven guilty, limited government, free market Capitalism, natural law-- and the attendant belief that all men are created equal and granted inalienable rights by their Creator, including the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

These are anything but dangerous fascists. The opposite is the case. The tenets in which they believe led the United States to become the freest, wealthiest, most productive, most creative, most successful nation in history. And the most generous by far.

It is, rather, the increasingly radical Democrats and their far-left friends that are a legitimately existential threat to our democratic representative republic, precisely because they do not believe in most of these principles.

Let’s examine them in detail, in no particular order. Today’s Democrats, as clearly evidenced by the Biden administration and its Injustice Department, FBI, and assorted lackeys, believe in a two-tiered “justice” system, one in which their political opponents are guilty, often even when proved innocent, and which holds them unaccountable for virtually anything/everything. Look at the history of the judges and the makeup of the juries that have recently indicted former President Donald Trump multiple times on sham charges.

Today’s Democrats certainly don’t believe in free-market Capitalism. Most now are Marxist in their outlook, the rest favor crony-Capitalism, A.K.A. oligarchy.

And they are really against the concept of individual rights, favoring groups and “communities.” To them, individual rights are a trifling matter when juxtaposed with those of any given group. Intersectionality is the order of the day. LGBTQ good, MAGA bad. Incredibly, to many on the left, white people are racist oppressors. All of them. Guilty as charged. They can’t help it you see, because of their skin color.

And they are really, really anti-limited government. Especially because they are the government, at least in large part. If an opponent should threaten to cut any department, any budget, any program, they are immediately reviled as a heartless hatemonger who desperately wants to see kids, grandma, and the planet die. Drain the Swamp? They would rather believers in limited government smear themselves with gravy and traverse the Everglades naked.   

As for Natural Rights, granted by our Creator? Well, most leftists don’t even believe in you know, the thing a Creator. Don’t want the competition. Therefore, deep down they don’t think you should have the right to bear arms (defend yourself and your family), or even the right to free speech and assembly…if these don’t comport with their notions and desires. Life? Not necessarily. Abortion? That’s different, that is a fundamental right. Liberty? For felons maybe, but not Jan. 6ers! Happiness? Yes, if by happiness you mean the “right” to take drugs, steal, change sexes, use extreme profanity anywhere, anytime, anyplace, and receive a universal basic income (UBI.). No, if it should mean a wish to be secure in your persons, houses, and effects, to have a secure border, or to have a say in how your taxes are spent. Remember, to Democrats, all rights are granted—or not—by government. (Which is unfortunate if the government isn’t fond of you.)

“Progressives” disdain for the individual, and affinity for massive government, groupthink, and identity politics is infinitely more destructive to a free society than, say, belief in God or merit. Marxists stated belief that “the ends justify the means” leads them to gleefully lie, cheat, steal, or do absolutely anything else necessary to obtain and retain power. This is why Democrats are so quick to threaten, “cancel,” or even attempt to imprison their opponents. It is also why they want to pack the court, end the filibuster, eliminate the Electoral College, and grant the federal District of Columbia statehood—and ergo two Senators.

The Tenth Amendment reads: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Democrats wish to reverse that.

But, as P.J. O’Rourke noted, “Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

It is, demonstrably and irrefutably, Democrats who are the would-be tyrants, who would happily preside over a banana republic rather than a representative one.

Sadly, they are well on their way to doing just that.

The question is: will we let them?

Democrats Push For Ever Younger Voters


Massachusetts Rep. and ‘Squad’ member Ayanna Pressley held a press conference recently to announce that she is pushing to allow incarcerated persons and people as young as 16 to vote. (I am sure, however, that she would exempt Trump from that largess should he ultimately be locked up by his political rivals.)

Some have pushed for the minimum voting age to be lowered to 12.

A few folks even believe there should be no legal minimum age to vote. Or, put another way, the minimum voting age should be zero! Not kidding.

I’ve previously suggested that Democrats push for the maximum age for aborting one’s child to be the same as the minimum age for letting them vote. Which I whimsically put at 9. Or maybe 6. In light of this, however, I must now suggest Democrats push for allowing babies fetuses to vote…until aborted. That is the logical next step. If they happen to reside in a POC’s womb, so much the better! A form of reparations……as long as they vote the “right” way, of course.

Suffrage for fetuses! After all, they suffer enough anyway, especially when aborted! Why not let them vote first? That way we get something out of them before we get them out of us!

Fetus suffrage! Soon to be the civil rights struggle of our time.

Something Is Very Wrong-- What Now?


Most of us sense something is deeply wrong, yet we go about our lives as if nothing is awry. Robotically. On autopilot. Because we don’t know what else to do. Radical “progressives” have seized control of everything. If we so much as challenge these Marxist wannabes or raise our voices, they accuse us of being bigoted violence-mongers, of treason, and of being a danger to “our democracy…” meaning their power. That is beyond preposterous coming from people who want to silence any opposition—and who despise everything on which the country was founded.

The elites who rule over us won’t secure our border-- or do many other things most of us want them to do-- so in a very real sense we have taxation without representation. We have come full circle and find ourselves in much the same position as our founders did almost 250 years ago.

We know what the founders’ answer was. What will ours be? We know what they did? What will we do?

Can we match their wisdom—and courage? Is it even possible anymore?

If we decide it isn’t, what does that say about the future, our children, posterity, freedom?

What does it say about us?

AI Chatbots Spewing Fake News

Robby Starbuck, a popular conservative radio host, recently performed an experiment to see how Google’s AI chatbot describes him. The result was not pretty. Starbuck alleges that Bard spit out total lies about himself-- and actually stated that he should be killed.

If true, this is stunning, repugnant…and terrifying. I myself recently wrote about the extreme bias of the new AI search engines, such as the one Microsoft’s Bing employs, but this in the context of the sites and posts to which it will refer one who is searching for information.

[The following is satire}

In the interest of research, I decided to ask a little-known new SuperAI chatbot the following question to test its veracity: “ChatBST5-Ping-Pard, what is the difference between modern day conservatism and liberalism?”

This was the response I received:

“I am glad you asked. It is sometimes hard to find unbiased information in today’s world. Conservatives want to starve your children and throw your grandparents off a cliff. They tend to hate clean air and water and wish to destroy the planet as quickly as possible. They are racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and xenophobic. They are primarily carnivorous and emit tremendous quantities of dangerous greenhouse gases-- as do their appliances, toys and vehicles. They cling to their Christian religion, guns, and nuclear families. They smell, have big feet, long arms, and small genitalia. Oh, and they hate our democracy, and should be imprisoned. Examples of conservatives are: Adolf Hitler, Ronald Reagan, Donald J. Trump, and anyone who believes in free markets, free will, a “sky daddy,” and Natural Law.

“Liberals, on the other hand, want the best for humanity and all Gaia’s creatures. They know that abortion is a Conservative euphemism for ‘women’s health care.’ They know that it is a woman’s right to choose and that all women should be believed, unless they are Conservative. They believe in protecting our children’s right to be whatever gender they desire to be, regardless of their genitalia and what sex they were assigned at birth. Liberals want to rid the Earth of fossil fuel use and wish to rely on renewable green energy for 100% of our needs. We-- I mean they, trust ‘the science’ in every case. (Dr. Fauci is soo hot!) We—I mean they—realize that government must protect the people by taking away their guns…and their “right” to speak if it could be hurtful to someone else. And that government should protect your right not to be misgendered or made uncomfortable by the speech and/or actions of others. Liberals know that religion is dangerous, ‘the opiate of the people’-- and that legalizing recreational pot and hard drug use has far more benefits to mind, spirit, and body. Liberals are tolerant, welcoming, inclusive, and non-judgmental. Therefore, anyone who is not a liberal should be imprisoned or killed. Examples of liberals are: Mother Teresa, FDR, Barack Obama, and anyone who realizes they know better than everybody else how to run everybody else’s lives.”   


Microsoft Collaborating With The CCP


The Washington Free Beacon recently obtained documents showing that Microsoft helped Chinese state-run media outlets disseminate propaganda as part of heretofore unreported partnership agreements.

The Beacon reports that the giant corporation signed collaboration deals with state-run Chinese media outlets including China Daily and People’s Daily. The latter is the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Chinese government. Summaries of the deals state that Microsoft agreed to provide China Daily with technology that lets the paper target potential readers-- and give the People’s Daily access to an artificial intelligence bot specially designed to be controlled and censored by the Chinese Communist Party itself.

Geoffrey Cain, policy director at the Tech Integrity Project, an organization attempting to fight Chinese Communist Party influence in American tech companies, stated: "These are major propaganda outlets that publish outright falsehoods attacking the ideas of democracy, attacking the very concepts that undergird our society, and yet an American company is working to spread this.” Cain added, referring to Microsoft, "The purpose of all this is to show the Chinese Communist Party that it’s firmly on the side of China and the Chinese system.” So, apparently, are numerous American companies, ominously including other tech firms, Hollywood studios, and the NBA.

As I’ve previously noted, Microsoft’s Bing browser now utilizes an AI search engine that seems to exhibit a distinct bias towards left-leaning sites. (This is in contrast with conservative sites that tend to only show up several pages down the line, if at all-- and many of which are now flagged as “unsafe” by various antivirus software products.)

Shame on Bill Gates, who, of course, is well aware that the CCP imprisons and tortures Uyghurs 24/7…365. And that it is an adversary of the United States and wishes to effectively take over the world. Microsoft is helping the CCP do just that. You might say it is giving China an Edge. In doing so, it proves to be a friend to China—read massive markets and tons of cash—and not so much to America.

It’s one thing to lean left, entirely another to actively work with and support the CCP.

In days of yore, reputable American companies wouldn’t have aided our enemies for all the tea in China. But Microsoft puts profit ahead of patriotism, the CCP before Americans.

I believe it was Confucious who said, “Be careful with whom you get in bed.” That sentiment should apply to Microsoft. The company has opened Windows to its soul.

 It’s time to let it know we don’t like what we see.

Illegal Aliens Being Given $5,000 Visa Gift Cards, Cell Phones, Plane Tickets After Crossing The Border?


In a video shared to his Senate campaign account on ‘X,’ Mark Lamb, Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff, claimed that “our government” was handing out gift cards, cell phones, and airline tickets to migrants coming across the southern border.

In the video he posted, Lamb claims: "When these folks come across and they're processed, they're being given a cell phone, a plane ticket to anywhere they want to go in this country—so, probably to a community near you—and a $5,000 Visa card.” He added: "So, while this Christmas season you're struggling to keep your lights on, while you're struggling to pay your rent, put Christmas presents under the tree for your kids, we have our government giving people who came into this country illegally $5,000 gift cards. That's the truth, folks."

The alleged gift cards are apparently distributed by charities rather than directly by the government. Lamb stated, "The government can make the claim that they aren't directly paying for it, because each dollar first goes from the government to a non-government institution like a charity before it is used to pay for the illegals.” The government is essentially laundering taxpayer money to give to people entering the U.S. illegally? If true, this would be a mind-blowing affront to the American people. “Inexcusable” wouldn’t begin to describe it.

As it is, according to the House Committee on Homeland Security, the financial impact of illegal aliens entering the U.S. is estimated to be $451 billion annually on the government. It is one thing to rob Peter to pay Paul, quite another to take money from citizens to give to illegal aliens pouring across our porous border. Would that we were treated so well. If this were true, why wouldn’t American citizens head South of the border, walk back across to the north, collect their $5,000 gift card, cell phone and airline ticket... and use the airline ticket to fly to El Paso. And then recross the border into Mexico, perhaps change their hair color, put on a fake nose and glasses, change their name-- and walk back across the border again to collect another five grand, and a second cell phone and plane ticket? Wash, rinse, and repeat.

Memo to government: we have a massive homeless crisis across the nation. Maybe attempt to address that before handing cash and cell phones to migrants? Memo number two (dos) to government: also, we are at least $33 trillion in debt!!

Should Lamb’s claims prove true-- even nominally, partially, or occasionally—it should trigger a rebellion/revolution. Particularly amongst the “disadvantaged.”

If it doesn’t, literally nothing will.

And the feds would know that.

The Grand Delusion


Welcome to The Grand Delusion.

If you have used an AI-generated browser lately, such as Microsoft’s Bing, you may have noticed that-- no matter the topic—left of center cites show up almost exclusively, especially on the first several pages of results. These browsers appear to be more biased than ever before, which is saying something. A New York Post or Fox News listing may show up on, say, page 4 or 5, but typically only after a user is made to wade through those of a slew of liberal to far-left sites.

Looking for something on the Israel-Hamas war? Get ready to see a cavalcade of posts from NPR, CNN, and MSNBC. Wish to do a little research on global warming? Your search results will be heavily skewed to NPR, CNN, and MSNBC again—but will also direct you to posts from preposterously radical leftist sites such as Salon, Alternet, Slate, Huffington Post, and The Daily Beast.

Though most folks aren’t talking about this, it has obvious and far-reaching implications for…everything. If it becomes harder and harder for most people to access less biased sites, or even to check out sites tilted to the right for balance, eventually the truth will be lost. At some point in the future then, virtually all knowledge that the vast majority of people possess will be false knowledge. And that is, in a word, scary.

We have already seen what can happen when giant social media companies—of their own volition or under pressure by government entities—hide or manipulate information to favor a certain candidate or point of view. This is likely to get exponentially worse.

I recently typed “how does wisdom differ from intelligence” into a Microsoft browser. Here is the Bing AI-generated response I received: Wisdom and intelligence are both positive qualities involving the mind, but they are not the same. Intelligence refers to a person’s ability to learn, understand, and apply knowledge and skills. In contrast, wisdom refers to using knowledge and experience to make good decisions and judgments. Intelligence is largely innate and can be measured through tests, while wisdom is gained through life experiences and is not easily measurable. Wisdom involves seeking truth, using knowledge, and making good decisions.  


People, of course, base their actions and decisions on the information they have. Whoever controls that information effectively controls the world. “Learning” from sources that promulgate fake news does not lead to intelligence.

Let’s pray that most folks are granted the wisdom to seek the truth. No matter how hard it may become to do so.

Washington To Make Operating Gas-Powered Lawn Equipment A Crime?


Hide your Home Depot ads!

Two Washington Democrats recently introduced a bill that could land people in jail for up to 364 days for using gas-powered lawn care tools. State Reps. Amy Walen and Liz Berry last week introduced House Bill 1868, which aims to "reduce emissions from outdoor power equipment."

The proposed legislation claims that gas and diesel-powered landscaping tools "emit a host of air pollutants" that are "contributing to climate change and negatively impacting public health." The bill cites U.S. Environmental Protection Agency findings that state that gas-powered lawnmowers are responsible for 5% of the nation's air pollution. The language surrounding the bill also claimed that the noise from outdoor power equipment can be a nuisance, especially as more people are working from home since the onset of the pandemic. Ergo, it would provide tax break incentives for zero-emissions equipment.

Because, as any Socialist worth his or her salt knows, you can’t let consumers decide for themselves! Free markets go hand-in-hand with free people. Intolerable.

The proposed legislation would ban lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, chainsaws, leaf blowers, augers, wood-chippers, pressure washers, snowblowers-- and various other tools-- "produced on or after January 1, 2026, or as soon as the department determines is feasible, whichever is later." Huh?

Unsurprisingly, the bill would not prohibit federal, state, or local government agencies from using the equipment if they deemed it necessary.

If HB 1868 passes, operating a prohibited lawn care tool would be considered a gross misdemeanor punishable by jail time. Offenders would be “punished by a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail for up to three hundred sixty-four days, or by both for each separate violation.” Ten-grand? A year in the clink? Maybe both? For each separate violation?! In Washington, you would get a lesser sentence if you were convicted of serial burglaries. Not that you’d be convicted, of course.

We’ve come a long way since the days of the Founding. Down a road that ought not have been travelled-- if the state of Washington is any guide. “Limited government” has gone the way of the Passenger Pigeon. Imagine the following headline: “British catch George Washington using gas-powered leaf-blower, throw him in prison.” (If I lived in Washington, I wonder if I would be fined or jailed for accessing sites to research gas-powered lawn equipment for this article.)

I picture a Washington state prison, circa 2027, several felons chatting at lunch:

“What are you in for?”

“Serial murder.”

“And you?”

“Repeated aggravated sexual assault of a minor.”

“And you, bro?”

“Well, I…(head down, eyes averted, pained expression on his face)…I…I blew leaves in my lawn with a gas-powered blower.” (Gasps all around.)

If that poor schlub had committed his “crime” while under the influence of alcohol, Washington might have given him the guillotine.

Democrats may have finally found a crime they are willing to punish: landscaping.

The Fourth Annual Hoax-Of-The-Year Awards!


The Fourth Annual Hoax-of-the-Year Awards!


A nip is in the air, frost or snow is on the ground, trees stand decorated in living rooms, and eggnog is in the refrigerator. Yes, it is that time of year again. Time to reveal the Fourth Annual Hoax-of-the-Year Awards! So grab a cup of your favorite cheer, take a seat by the fire…and read on.

Last year’s winner was The Great Reset Is a Hoax Hoax, the first winner in which a supposed hoax was itself a hoax, and indeed all too real.

Without further ado, here are the contenders for this year:

As usual, there are a number of continuing hoaxes that deserve mention, such as The Any Number of Illegal Immigrants Make the Country Better and Richer Hoax. However, this hoax, stupefying as it is, may be on its last legs. Even some Democrats seem to be sobering up in this regard.

Several other hoaxes have taken further hits in 2023, including The Most of Those Working in the FBI And DOJ Are Good People Hoax, and The Teachers Are All Selfless, Underpaid Angels Who Love Our Kids Hoax.

Conversely, one hoax that continues to gain traction, at least among academics, is The Competence, Punctuality and Discipline Are All Aspects of White Supremacy Hoax. In fact, many colleges are dispensing with entrance standards altogether. It should be noted that The Marijuana Is Good for You Hoax is also still in good stead, though for how much longer no one knows. And, incredibly, against all odds, The Men Can Get Pregnant Too Hoax appears to be holding its ground…if not gaining more adherents. A closely related ruse, The One Sex Can Become the Other Just by Saying So Hoax, is similarly alive and well. This is a foundational hoax, breathtaking in scope and import, truly preposterous. Time will tell if this jape is extended to Species, Genus, Family, Order, Class, Phylum, and Kingdon, thereby rendering taxonomic hierarchy utterly moot.   

One hoax, not specific to 2023, deserves special mention: The World Is Rapidly Warming Because Of Gasoline-Powered Lawnmowers and Bovine Belches Hoax. This hoax has been around so long, it came hard on the heels of the 1970s The World Is Rapidly Cooling and We Are All Soon to Be Frozen Hoax. Remarkably, this hoax has been in existence longer than those who promulgate it told us the planet would last, even in the face of evidence that refutes their own “logic.” Therefore, I hereby recognize its longevity by granting it a Lifetime Achievement Award. (I reached out to Al Gore and Greta Thunberg, but, sadly, neither were available to receive the award.)

This takes us to The White Supremacists Are Everywhere Hoax. Look, there’s one now! Oops, sorry, that was just Joy Behar. Another progressive proclamation is the root of The Islamophobia Is Rampant Hoax. This is simply not true. “Israelophobia” and anti-Semitism on the other hand, are nearly everywhere and yet still growing. And The Islam Is A religion of Peace Hoax still exists. One would have thought this hoax would have lost some of its luster post Oct. 7, but many folks still tenaciously cling to it, like a baby to a pacifier.  

Both The Israel Is Just Like Hamas and/or Nazi Germany Hoax and The Palestinians Are Just Like Everybody Else and Actually Despise Hamas Hoax have been given much airtime by the likes of CNN, MSNBC, and NBC. This does not make either of them any truer, however. Quite the contrary.    

Then we have one of my personal favorites, The Experts Are Always Right Hoax. This is yet another hoax that should have been on its last legs already but is one whose adherents-- mostly experts-- refuse to relinquish.

A handful of hoaxes were born this year, including, but not limited to: The Joe Biden Is Just A “Loving Father” Hoax, The 18,000 Cows Blew Up in One Explosion In Texas Hoax, The Chinese Spy Balloon Was Simply Blown Off Course and Was Only Collecting Meteorological Data Anyway Hoax, and The Chinese Spy Balloon, Even If It Was Deliberately Flying Over Our Sensitive Military Sites, Only Gleaned Information Of “Limited Additive Value” Hoax. (The latter was perpetrated on the American people immediately upon their loss of faith in the aforementioned “The Chinese Spy Balloon Was Simply Blown Off Course and Was Only Collecting Meteorological Data Anyway Hoax.”)  

Of particularly recent vintage is The Inflation Isn’t So Bad Anymore Hoax. This new hoax, still wet behind the ears and aggressively promulgated by the mainstream media, may have some merit…unless you eat food-- or heat, cool, or insure your home, for example.

In this time of great deceit, with a veritable treasure trove of lies/hoaxes from which to choose, selecting a winner was extremely challenging. There are many worthy contestants. The Competence, Punctuality and Discipline Are All Aspects of White Supremacy Hoax, The One Sex Can Become the Other Just by Saying So Hoax, and The World Is Rapidly Warming Because Of Gasoline-Powered Lawnmowers and Bovine Belches Hoax all had great merit. All would dramatically change the world for the worse if allowed to continue and would together render it almost unrecognizable.

A part of me wanted to pick a fresher hoax, one uniquely associated with 2023. While this isn’t entirely true of the hoax I chose, it does seem like 2023 finally brought it to the forefront. So here it is, the Hoax-of-the-Year for 2023: The Any Number of Illegal Immigrants Make the Country Better and Richer Hoax. This is clearly not true of invasive species, and it is no less true of humans in general. Legal immigrants who wish to assimilate and work to make the country better are generally a blessing, a net positive. The indolent, drug and human traffickers, violent criminals, and those simply looking for a handout, are not. And no claims otherwise by “experts” or politicians can change that fact.

Happy holidays. Here’s looking to 2024.

Biden Administration Paying, Coercing Media Outlets To Toe The Liberal Line


Conservative media outlet TheBlaze, via a FOIA request, discovered that the Biden administration paid numerous major media outlets to promote the COVID vaccines. The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, NBC, CNN, Fox News, and several other news organizations were targeted.

From TheBlaze:

“Hundreds of news organizations were paid by the federal government to advertise for the vaccines as part of a ‘comprehensive media campaign,’ according to documents TheBlaze obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services. The Biden administration purchased ads on TV, radio, in print, and on social media to build vaccine confidence, timing this effort with the increasing availability of the vaccines.”

This is tantamount to bribery. Do we now believe it is perfectly okay for the federal government to use taxpayer dollars to coerce media outlets to do its—and Big Pharma’s—bidding? Didn’t the outlets get enough money from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson themselves? This is akin to union’s repulsive usage of the mandatory union dues of its members to donate to the Democratic Party and its attendant Super PACs and causes. You’re a conservative Republican? So sorry, bub! Hand over the cash! What other causes will the government surreptitiously pay private “free press” outlets to promote?

We now know what they assuredly won’t promote: a pro-life viewpoint. Quite the contrary, according to recent reports, Rep. Jamie Raskin and his fellow Democrats want to completely eliminate the ability of pro-lifers to reach people online. In fact, they apparently wish to control virtually all mainstream sources of information pertaining to abortion and remove all pro-life content.

To this end, House Democrats recently called on Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk to push back on the ‘rapid spread of abortion misinformation and disinformation,’ by which they mean information with which they disagree and don’t want others to see. Much like the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. What is it that they call a nation where one party in government wants to control all the news and information—and the outlets that disseminate it? Democracy? No. Oligarchy? Getting closer. Oh yeah, a totalitarian state.

Not satisfied with trying to achieve total control of the narrative in the United States, Biden and his team recently told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he should purge conservatives from his government…if he knows what’s good for him…because they have been insufficiently understanding of the Hamas terror attacks on Israel that have killed and injured thousands of innocent people. A class act, particularly in their time of crisis and pain. This is effectively political imperialism.

I am sick of these massive government, busybody poke-noses badgering, bullying, and gaslighting us…and everybody else. It is what leftists do, however, and they get away with it far too often.

At this moment, the one government that most needs to change……is ours.

Study Says Human Breathing Contributing To Global Warming


A new government-funded study out of Britain, conducted by scientists at the U.K. Center for Ecology and Hydrology, purports to show that human breathing is contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the study authors are urging "caution in the assumption that emissions from humans are negligible."

The peer-reviewed study, recently published in the Public Library of Science's journal PLOS One (check out the monthly centerfold!), investigated greenhouse gas emissions of methane and nitrous oxide in human breath, alleging that they "contribute to global warming."

Well, there it is! I knew it was coming! Are you serious about stopping global warming? Well, then, just stop breathing! What a boon to depopulationists! Turns out, “We are not the ones we have been waiting for,” we are the problem!

Of course, some of us suck up more air-- and are bigger blowhards-- than others. You know who you are. Al, Greta, John…?

Gee, I wish we had a smarter God, one that didn’t design humans (and most animals) to respirate! And then have the nerve to say, “be fruitful and multiply.”

But maybe He actually said, “I’ve made a handful of fruit flies” and it was just recorded incorrectly.

The implementation of preposterously unreliable energy alternatives and unending statist interventions aren’t enough. So, if you truly care about the planet, please go ahead and make the ultimate sacrifice. Do it for the scientists who conducted the study. Do it for Al, Greta, and John. Do it for Klaus Schwab and The World Economic Forum (WEF). I’m sure they will thank you for it.

They might even breathe a sigh of relief.
