Will Autonomous Vehicles Lead To Dependent People?


There is much talk today about autonomous vehicles. There is less or no talk about the possibility that when automobiles become autonomous, human beings no longer will be. A sad irony, indeed.

Let me explain. It is not a coincidence that in large inner cities-- where most people take the subway, buses, taxis, and other public transportation to get where they are going-- they tend to vote 80% to 90+% for so-called progressives, leftists, Democrats. Whereas in more rural areas, western states, i.e. “fly over country,” people vote for conservatives for the most part.

This is because the latter are used to being independent and doing things for themselves. They map out their own lives, and don’t need the government to tell them what to do-- and when and how to do it. In fact, they grow the food and extract the energy that all of us, especially those in the big cities, need to survive.

They prefer to be responsible for their own lives, drive themselves around, and make their own schedules. They also tend to like land, whether a suburban yard, or a ranch or farm. By contrast, most in the densely populated urban areas live stacked up in relatively small apartments, flats, and condos, with neighbors on all sides of them, just a few feet away through the walls, floors, and ceilings. They therefore heavily rely on public transportation. When they walk to the local deli or boutique, policemen are often visible—and signs tell them when to “Stop,” “Walk,” or “Yield.”

Where am I headed with this? The more we allow others to control us, the more autonomy we cede. That is obvious. When we surrender our autonomy to gadgets and machines, we eventually forget how to do the things they now do for us. Many kids can no longer tell time when looking at an old analog “clock.” (In fact, some schools in England—and elsewhere—have removed these clocks from their walls for that very reason.) Unless a digital clock shows them it is, for example, “10:15,” they are lost. And who among us hasn’t handed cash to a clerk at a checkout lane and watched them briefly struggle to figure out the change we are due back…until they look at the digital display on the register? We are in real trouble if they can’t, of their own competence and volition, quickly determine that if the bill comes to, say, $19.72-- and we hand them a $20 bill-- we are owed 28 cents in change.

Much as we outsource many of our jobs, we are outsourcing many of our brain functions. And, while there are numerous and obvious benefits to technological innovations, if we allow them to, in effect, “dumb us down,” will it ultimately be to our benefit? Especially when we consider the potential ramifications of the rapid onset of “artificial intelligence.”

I fear that the God-given, “organic” intelligence we possess may one day be eclipsed and usurped by an artificial one. No one knows where that will lead. And we will have simply let that happen.

Americans have long had a love affair with the automobile. (“Get your kicks on Route 66.”) In large part because of the sheer, unlimited freedom cars provided us. There was great joy in “taking the wheel,” and charting your own path. In mastering the machine…and the road.

              With the coming “Great Reset” and “Fourth Industrial Revolution” we are in danger of writing ourselves out of our own story. Will we let our machines master us?

When our vehicles are autonomous, will we need them more than they need us? By relinquishing our control, will we have swapped our independence for theirs? Will we have ceded our autonomy—and freedom—to the big corporations and governments that manufacture, monitor, and control them?

Perhaps that is the reason “progressives” and the “Great Reset” favoring elites seem so hell-bent on making our vehicles autonomous…and us less so.

Today In Tyranny


Today In Tyranny

*Trond Harald Håland is a Norwegian man who was allegedly placed in forced psychiatric treatment for over a week for criticizing the approved COVID narrative online.

Håland’s lawyer, Barbro Paulsen, says that this is likely the “most direct case” in which the Norwegian government detained someone over Facebook posts, while claiming that the country has a history of forcing people into psychiatric treatment for questioning the government. (Sounds like where Canada and the U.S. are headed.)

*Scott Gerber, an Ohio Northern University (ONU) constitutional law professor recently told Michele Tafoya on her podcast that armed town police were present when school security guards led him away from his classroom to the dean’s office on April 14 without providing a reason, though he is convinced they did it because he challenged the school’s DEI dogma. Gerber, in his Wall Street Journal op-ed “DEI Brings Kafka to My Law School,” said his students appeared “shocked and frightened” when he was essentially taken into custody, and added, “I know I was.” He said he was “immediately barred from teaching, banished from campus, and told that if I didn’t sign a separation agreement and release of claims by April 21, ONU would commence dismissal proceedings against me. The grounds: ‘Collegiality.’ The specifics: None.” Wow.

Gerber, who was vice-chair of the university council, objected to the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) material the university was pushing, telling fellow members they needed to remember “viewpoint diversity.”

Viewpoint diversity?!” At a college or university? Does Gerber believe in unicorns, too?

Gerber told Tafoya that he said to the president of the university at the time that the school had “drifted over into illegality” in its hiring practices and scholarship offerings to students in its adherence to DEI principles. He further stated, “I was naive enough to think … with a tenure and a record like I have, I could push back a little bit, especially because it’s protected activity. I’m allowed, you’re allowed, and anyone is allowed to object to illegality and not be retaliated against, but they did it anyway.” Naïve, indeed. Didn’t work for Trump, either.

*According to a lawsuit filed last April by Richard Bilkszto, Kike Ojo-Thompson, a Toronto-based diversity trainer, told a class of about 200 administrators that Canada is more racist than the United States. This apparently didn’t sit well with Bilkszto, a progressive and principal of Burnhamthorpe Collegiate Institute and Adult Learning Center. According to the lawsuit and audio obtained by The Free Press, Bilkszto challenged Ojo-Thompson’s assumption by citing Canada’s publicly funded education system and socialized health care. (As if that would prove his point.) That apparently didn’t sit well with Ojo-Thompson, who responded by stating: “What I’m finding interesting is that, in the middle of this Covid disaster, where the inequities in this fair and equal healthcare system have been properly shown to all of us. . . you and your whiteness think that you can tell me what’s really going on with Black people—like, is that what you’re doing, ‘cause I think that’s what you’re doing, but I’m not sure, so I’m going to leave you space to tell me what you’re doing right now.” Say what?!

Bilkszto killed himself on July 11.

*Charlie Kirk, a conservative activist, was drowned out by protesters chanting “F**k you, fascist!” during a recent appearance at Northern Arizona University. Kirk was at the school for a debate entitled “Prove Me Wrong: The Government is Lying to You.” Instead, a mob of rowdy protesters greeted Kirk, many carrying signs with clever bon mots such as “Facists [sic] fuck off!” “Charlie Kirk has a small face,” “Trans rights = human rights,” and “Charlie K. is a piss baby.”

So much for debate. I mean, when you can’t even spell “fascist” correctly, you probably aren’t going to do well in a regulated discussion of a proposition between two matched sides. (Mediaite noted that Kirk set up a booth to debate students only to be “drowned out by screaming students, bullhorns, and even a brass band.”) The protesters may as well have stuck their index fingers in their ears and chanted “Farmer in the dell, farmer in the dell…” It would have been less vulgar…and no more childish and pathetic.

To his credit, Kirk, unlike Bilkszto, didn’t kill himself. He simply laughed off the ridiculous and repulsive verbal assaults.

Geology: Too Hard? Too White?

             Willa Rowan, of Western Washington University, had what she thought was a rock-solid idea for her master’s thesis. She would generate—and sift through—data to discover the systemic racism and inequality that must be inherent in the geosciences…and the study thereof.


According to, Rowan surveyed 139 college seniors majoring in geoscience-- from 99 universities. She purported to find that “BIPOC students, especially female and non-binary students, were more likely to report struggles with mental health and feelings of inadequacy.” The same could be said of females and non-binary individuals that aren’t in (or studying) the geosciences.

Unsurprisingly, Rowan also claimed that “BIPOC students in geoscience face discrimination and barriers to learning at all levels, from microaggressions to systemic racism.” Moreover, upon analyzing student survey and short-answer responses, Rowan found white students “had stronger geoscience identities than BIPOC male students, with much of the difference concentrated in the performance/competence domain of geoscience identity.” Sounds like we have to rid the system of any/all performance/competence measurements, or maybe just ban performance and competence outright. Equity über alles!


Some students with physical limitations complained that geological field sites at which field camps or courses were held were not always handicap accessible-- or had physical demands that not all students could easily meet. No more geological sites on elevated sites or steep slopes! If it is, for some reason, absolutely necessary for a camp to be established, say, halfway up a mountain or hill, an escalator should be provided for all students and faculty.

Rowan’s nationwide survey of geoscience students found that some had other concerns, as well. One was that the faculty in the field are insufficiently diverse.

Another was that geoscience courses are “too rock heavy.” Not kidding.

Still another was that some students were concerned about “professors not respecting them enough for the knowledge they didn’t have.”

Let’s try that again: “professors not respecting them enough for the knowledge they didn’t have.” That’s a new one. I wish my professors had respected me for all the knowledge I didn’t have. “Eric, I just want to tell you how much I respect your ignorance of the course materials we’ve recently covered. Nice job. Keep it up!”


And geology is “too rock heavy?” Is medicine “too health heavy?” Carpentry “too tool heavy?” Agriculture “too plant heavy.”  

So progressives think geology, like everything else apparently, is too white?

And too “ableist?”

Better to be dumb as a rock, I guess, as long as we’re all equal.

           At this rate, it won’t be long until we hit rock bottom.

Canadian Parliament Accidentally Salutes Nazi


Yaroslav Hunka, a 98-year-old Ukrainian World War II veteran, recently received not one, but two standing ovations from Canadian lawmakers during a visit by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. 


What’s wrong with that, you ask?


Well, Hunka served in a Nazi S.S. unit.




Canadian parliament speaker Anthony Rota buoyantly introduced Hunka as “a Ukrainian Canadian war veteran from the Second World War who fought for Ukrainian independence against the Russians” and further branded him “a Ukrainian hero and a Canadian hero.” Rota later hastily issued an apology and insisted he had no idea of Hunka's past Nazi associations. Way to vet your heroes, Tony. Say, who fought the Russians on the Eastern front again?


Talk about an unforced error! This handed Russia a bit of a P.R. victory. Indeed, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the episode showed a careless disregard for historical truth. He told reporters, “Such sloppiness of memory is outrageous.” 

Worse still, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau-- and a liberal Canadian MP—both previously essentially called the freedom convoy truckers Nazis. (They claimed the “honk, honk” of the trucker’s horns meant “heil Hitler.” I wish I was kidding.) Leftists have a hard time getting their Nazis straight. They tend to accuse those lobbying for their freedom of being Nazis, while applauding—accidentally or not—those who actually are/were Nazis.

“Arbeit macht frei?” Nein.

Ignorance doesn’t make us free, either.

Quite the opposite.

Trump Must Die In Prison


Far-left MSNBC columnist and radio host Dean Obeidallah, in a recent interview with a reporter from the far-left Mediaite “news” website, stated: “I think Donald Trump must die in prison because I don’t care if he was 45 years old, you should get life in prison if you attempt a coup, and there should be no chance of parole.”

Mr. Obeidallah said that, were the former president to “die in prison” for daring to challenge the results of the 2020 election, it would send a much-needed message to the public. That message? “You can’t do this.” Ah.

He further explained, “That’s why I think Donald Trump or anyone else who commits a coup, must die in jail, because either we’re going to protect the democratic republic, or we’re going to allow people, in this case, Trump, to chip away at our democracy and chip away at what we believe in these institutions.”

Yes, imprisoning or killing the political opposition is a long-time hallmark of “democracy.”

Neither Trump nor his supporters committed a “coup,” which is defined as:

1)      a sudden, violent, and unlawful seizure of power from a government…or

2)      a notable or successful stroke or move.

Even the most deranged Trump haters must admit that Trump is not currently the president of the United States. And, given the fact that he and many of his supporters are under indictment or serving time, the Jan. 6 mostly peaceful riot at the Capitol was notably unsuccessful.

Clearly there would be less joyful speculation of Biden dying in prison if the tables were turned…as well they should be as the Biden-Democratic-Media complex did essentially pull off a slow coup in wresting the 2020 election away from Trump-- against all odds and reason.

Progressives think “misgendering” someone is “hate speech,” but their vaunted tolerance only goes so far. Being progressive means never having to say you’re sorry. Indeed, openly hoping that your political opponents “die in prison” is totally okay.

In fact, saving our democracy demands it.

CNN Chyron Actually Says The Constitution Is Bad For Democracy


CNN, bastion of republican sanity that it is, recently placed a graphic up that said scholars are warning that the Constitution is outdated and could put democracy at risk. The chyron read: “SCHOLARS WARN OUTDATED CONSTITUTION HAS PUT DEMOCRACY AT RISK”

I would say scholars are putting democracy at risk. And preposterously biased media outlets like CNN.

I am sadly aware that history is not a favored subject amongst progressives, many of whom seem to think that everything that occurred before they themselves arrived on the scene and became (arguably) sentient was unenlightened and irrelevant. But the Constitution and its attendant Bill of Rights were specifically designed to protect representative democracy. And artfully so. The founders were uniquely capable of doing this because of their incredibly vast knowledge of history, including the study of all forms of government that came before them—and how those governments impacted the people.

The Declaration of independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. No other documents have ever been so specifically designed to foster and protect representative democracy…or been so successful-- for so long-- at doing so.

But leftists don’t like the Constitution, and actually disdain democracy, especially representative republics, because they are impediments to what they value most: power at any cost. However, they can’t come right out and say that, so they gaslight and now say the Constitution is a threat to Democracy, when they are the real threat. Tragically, a significant percentage of Americans are now too ignorant or ill-educated to understand what’s happening. A shocking number are duped by leftists—and their disastrous policies.

The Left is getting ever more brazen in their refutation of America, even as they blather on about saving “our democracy.” Stating that the Constitution is putting that democracy at risk is like saying the instructions for how to safely light and operate a gas grill are putting those that enjoy barbecue at risk.

Empire State Building Lit Up In "Pfizer Blue"


A recent MSN post by way of 710 WOR-- or is it WOR 710?-- read:

Seems like COVID's everywhere again. But here's good news from Pfizer!

This season's updated COVID-19 shots are now available for ages 6 months and up, and they're designed to help protect against recent variants.

That is why today, at 8pm, the Empire State Building turned its iconic building blue to announce that the CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get this season's updated COVID-19 shot. The blue light symbolizes our gratitude and appreciation for the updated vaccines and all those who made it possible.

COVID-19 isn't gone, and vaccination remains one of our best tools to help protect against the virus that causes the disease. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about this season's updated COVID-19 shots. Learn more and schedule at the CDC's website,

Sponsored by Pfizer.

You don’t say!

The post was titled, “The Empire State Building Shines Pfizer Blue for Updated COVID-19 Shots.”

I’m not sure how pharmaceutical companies get away with calling these experimental mRNA shots “vaccines,” at least insofar as they don’t prevent contraction or transmission of the disease…and even so need to be taken repeatedly. Be that as it may, recommending the shots for those 6-months-old and up is beyond the pale, and should be a crime. But what the hell, let’s all express our “gratitude and appreciation!”

I must confess I didn’t know there was such a color as “Pfizer Blue.” Call me a skeptic, but it seems a bit much to light up a skyscraper in honor of the vaccines. I wonder how much that cost…and who paid for it? Is that not a waste of energy? What of the carbon footprint?

Going forward will we light up, say, the Sears tower in Viagra Blue? The IDS tower in Pepto-Bismol pink?


Biden Speech To Flood Victims


Makeshift stage somewhere in America

President Biden at podium, giving speech

October 5, 2023


President Biden: “I feel for all of you after a flood like this. I know many of you have lost your homes and businesses. (In a barely audible rasping whisper): And it’s a damn shame. (Much louder again): And, you know, I can symp—um, empath, uhh, empathize with you because, one time, when I had a bad back, the plug popped out of my hot water bottle and my shirt and pants got really, really wet.

“But tragedies like that don’t define us. I was one of the last men standing defending the Alamo! Davy Crockpot, um Crockett, died right next to me, in fact. We may have lost the battle, but we didn’t get our dauber down. No, we cried out, ‘remember the Embers!’—I mean ‘remember the Alamo’…and Curly! And I was in Ford’s Theater the night Lincoln was shot. That was a bummer, but it gave us a great joke: ‘Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?’ So, the great man didn’t die in vain.

“What’s more, as many of you may know, I was front and center with Dr. King in the Selma March to Montgomery back in ’65. That was tough…but the tough get going! Right? And you all will get going again, just like I did. I promise you!

“It was tough times when the Brits controlled this country prior to our independence. My great, great, great grandaddy suggested that Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. And look how it turned out!

“I remember the space shuttle catastrophe in 1786, I mean 1986 I think it was. I helped Reagan write the speech he gave about the Challenger disaster. You know the one……we waved good-bye to them as they ‘slipped the burly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of, you know, the thing.’

“Anyway, the point I’m making is that we are rezil, uhh, resilient. When life throws lemons at us, we make lemonade-- (leans forward and whispers softly) even though I’d rather have ice cream.

“I was raised by Potawatomi. We were poor. We had nothing but a tepee and moccasins. But I went on to drive 18-wheelers and teach political theory at The University of Pennsylvania and rocket science at the Goddard Institute.

“I better stop talking now or I’ll get in trouble. So let me conclude by saying I know you are all wet now, but believe me, things will get better from here. Thank you!”

[Looks around, unsure of what to do or where to go…]

Senate Dress Code Repealed


Majority Leader Charles Schumer recently dropped the Senate dress code, in a nod to Democratic Sen. John Fetterman, who often shows up wearing shorts and a hoodie.

Subsequently, 46 Republicans wrote to Schumer, imploring him to reinstate the dress code, Susan Collins among them. Collins jokingly threatened to wear a bikini to the Senate chambers, since there is “no dress code anymore.” Yikes.

If Diane Feinstein shows up in a bikini, or Schumer or Fetterman appear wearing a Speedo, the Capitol might be subjected to an actual insurrection.

And we won’t even contemplate Mitch McConnell…

Irish Media Minister Supports Government Defining What Is True And What Speech Can Be Permitted Online


As recently reported by Sundance at “Discussing the implementation of the Digital Services Act (DSA), Ireland’s Media Minister defends the decision that a government appointed entity will ultimately decide what speech is permitted by citizens.” Sundance then opines, “This is the next phase in the control of opposition to the expansion of government controls.  We are all traveling at the front of one long continuum toward tyranny.” Sadly, he is correct.

Totalitarian governments such as China’s, North Korea’s, and Iran’s-- among many others—have long been the arbiters of truth and have gone to great lengths to control what can be said and where. Tragically and despicably, many formerly open and liberal governments of Western nations have begun doing much the same thing…with a twist. Each in turn claim they must take these autocratic, tyrannical, and anti-democratic measures…”to save our democracy.” This should immediately engender a response of “bullshit!” from every sane person. Unfortunately, due to the modern media’s fanatical unwillingness to speak truth to power when that power is left-leaning, combined with the apparently rapidly dwindling numbers of sane persons, those in these governments are getting away with this ridiculous and reprehensible ruse.

Skeptical of my skepticism? Believe Biden, Trudeau, et. al., are basically telling us the truth? Just look at what those in government have told us in recent years:

I never had sex with that woman, not one time!”

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor!”

“Trump colluded with Russia! The Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election to get Trump elected!”

” We are just asking for two weeks to flatten the curve! Social distancing and mask mandates work! So do the vaccines! And they are completely safe!”

“COVID-19 came from a bat and/or pangolin, not the Wuhan lab” that was researching and experimenting with precisely those types of viruses…at Fauci’s direction and with his funding!

“Hunter’s laptop bears all the hallmarks of a Russian misinformation operation!”

“Unlike the 2016 presidential election-- which was clearly stolen by the Russians-- the 2020 presidential election was the most accurate, fair-- literally beatific-- election in American history!”

“Progressive?” Contrast these notions…these lies…with statements from our founders. And then ask yourself who was more learned? Who possessed more integrity and character? Who was more courageous? Who spoke the truth?

*“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.”—Thomas Jefferson, 1791

*“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.”—John Adams, 1787

*“Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own.”—James Madison, 1792

*"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."—John Hancock

*”Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”—Benjamin Franklin

*“Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness.” – James Wilson

*”Either you will control your government, or government will control you.”—Ronald Reagan

The founders’ wisdom has never been more sorely—I would say desperately—needed than it is now. Which is precisely why they have been slandered and cast out by the radical leftists who now run this country and its major institutions. At some level, they intuit that the founders make them look unspeakably ignorant, even evil, by comparison.

              I snuck a quote from Ronald Reagan in at the end of my “founders statements,” though Reagan, of course, wasn’t a “founding father.” However, after the disaster that was the 1970s, Reagan went a long way towards “re-founding” the United States, by returning it to its founding principles.

So I close with two more quotes from the Gipper, both particularly pertinent to our current situation.

*Reagan, with typical good humor, rhetorically asked what the nine most terrifying words in the English language were. He would answer: ”I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” (If this no longer elicits knowing laughter, we are in such trouble.)

*”Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Seattle Law Enforcement Tells Citizens To Give Criminals "Whatever They're Looking For"


Seattle, like many American cities long controlled by Democrats, is experiencing rising crime rates in general-- and especially large increases in staged carjackings. What does law enforcement suggest citizens do in these trying times? Sheriff David Robinson recommends that “they give up their car keys” and give the criminals “whatever they’re looking for.”

That’s the spirit! Just surrender to evil! It’s the New American Way! We’ve come full circle from “Don’t Tread On Me” to “Take Anything You Want, I Won’t Resist.”

Nike says, “Just do it!” Nancy Reagan said “Just say no.” And now police say, “just give up.” Inspiring!

The Spirit of ’76? What if the colonists had decided that the British were just too strong-- and just gave up? The likes of George Washington and Samuel Adams could have simply told them to give up their guns and hand the keys to their homes over to the Redcoats. After all, the British had a large and experienced army and the best navy in the world. The colonists had neither.

Lewis and Clark blazed a trail through the wilderness to the Northwest, arriving at the Pacific Ocean (between what are the now crime ravaged cities of Seattle and Portland.) They faced many staggering obstacles, among them the Rocky Mountains, abhorrent weather, hostile natives, dangerous animals, and various diseases. Perhaps they should’ve just given up. Same for those who came later via Conestoga Wagon.

We must rise up and demand that authorities get tough on crime and support law enforcement. We must demand that they enforce bail, We must rid ourselves of Soros-funded D.A.s who never met a criminal they wouldn’t coddle. No more catch and release, no more recidivism. We must vote out the people in power who put the “needs” of criminals above those of law-abiding (and tax-paying!) citizens.

Unless we recover our courage, our spirit, and our moral character, criminals will forever be in the driver’s seat-- and we will be left helpless on the side of the road…wondering what went wrong.

Germany's Government To Ban Opposing Political Party, Too?


Germany’s AfD (Alternative for Germany), a populist political party whose main policy plank is dramatically tightening Germany’s open borders, is in danger of being outright banned.

Germany’s government, like America’s, is currently dominated by hypocritical leftist autocrats who are now debating whether to ban what it considers to be the “far-right” Alternative for Germany party. AfD has surged in popularity recently, and is now polling at 21%, despite warnings from intelligence officials that its members are becoming increasingly “extreme.” German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier recently stated, “We all have it in our hands to put those who despise our democracy in their place.” He was addressing the country’s domestic intelligence agency. (Which is not the STASI.”)

Thomas Haldenwang, the nation’s domestic spy chief, said: “We see a considerable number of protagonists in this party that spread hate against all types of minorities here in Germany.”


This whole situation is remarkably similar to that in the U.S., with those in power branding their political opponents as “extreme” and “far-right,” and attempting to marginalize, punish, cancel—or imprison—those with whom they disagree.

The AfD isn’t spreading hate. Rather, it is the elites who lord over their citizens and mock them for their beliefs-- and who tell them what speech/thought is and isn’t acceptable—that are doing so.

Leftists are spreading hate against the AfD, which is, in fact, a minority party. Banning its existence outright would be a remarkably Nazi-like thing to do, and particularly ironic while saying this must be done to save “our democracy.”


 In Germany, Canada, the United States-- and elsewhere-- “save our democracy” has become nothing but a dog-whistle. It is nought but shorthand for “cancel or lock-up anyone with whom we disagree!”


So the correct response to edicts from the likes of President Steinmeier, Prime Minister Trudeau, and President Biden would not be, “Sich Heil!”

It would be “See ya’!”

Biden Administration Won't Decouple Ukraine Funding From Hurricane Idalia Relief


White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently went on the record proclaiming that the Biden administration will not vow to decouple billions of taxpayer dollars going to Ukraine from relief funding for American victims of Hurricane Idalia in Florida and the wildfires in Maui, Hawaii. And nobody seems to care, least of all the mainstream media.

During a September 6 White House press briefing, Jean-Pierre was asked if disaster relief funds should be decoupled from additional aid to Ukraine. She replied, “Look, we see them both as incredibly important. I just laid out at the top what we saw happen in Ukraine: 16 civilians died.”

Yes, and at least 115 died in the Lahaina fire, and more are still missing. Hurricane Idalia killed three and caused many billions of dollars in damage. Both of those disasters afflicted Americans, and still Biden stuck to his “America Last” policy. I’m certain, however, that if fires and/or hurricanes ravaged Washington, D.C., Democrats would put forth numerous stand-alone spending bills to take care of their own. And probably take legal action against the fire and/or hurricane for attempted insurrection.

What if the George H.W. Bush administration had declared that it wasn’t going to decouple funding for the Afghan resistance fighters from relief funding for American victims of Hurricane Hugo? Or even from funding to clean up the waters around Alaska after the Exxon-Valdez oil spill? “It’s fund the Mujahideen or screw you South Carolinians and Alaskans!”

Think the media might have mentioned that?

What if FDR had refused to decouple Lend Lease loans to the USSR from money dedicated to help rebuild Pearl Harbor after the Japanese attack on December 7th, 1941? How would that have looked? What message(s) would that have sent?

On the other hand, today’s Democrats wouldn’t agree to decouple funding to fight “global warming” from that needed to rebuild the United States after a nuclear exchange and subsequent “nuclear winter.”

It appears President Peters Biden wishes to Make America Weak Again, Make America Broke Again…and Make Americans Miserable Again (MAMA).

Trudeau's Government Blames Oil And Gas Companies For Wildfires


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s radical left Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault drew a dubious link between his nation’s oil and gas sector and its wildfires during his visit to China. That he visited the communist nation at this time angered many, but damning his own country’s oil and gas industry while speaking in—and to--  the world’s leading polluter was illogical, repulsive, and completely beyond the pale.

Guilbeault said that he was “disappointed” that the CEO of Suncor, a Calgary based company which provides natural resources for all of Canada – seemed more concerned with producing oil and gas rather than lowering carbon emissions at a time when “tens of thousands of Canadians” were forced to flee from recent wildfires. 

Guilbeault stated, “To see the leader of a great Canadian company say that he is basically disengaging from climate change and sustainability, that he’s going to focus on short-term profit, it’s all the wrong answers.” He added, “If I was convinced before that we needed to do regulation, I am even more convinced now.”

This led Alberta Premier Danielle Smith-- who is apparently sane—to reply, “Minister Guilbeault’s comments are a continuation of his provocative verbal attacks on Alberta's energy sector, the most environmentally responsible and ethical energy-producing jurisdiction in the world.”

Guilbeault’s inference that “climate change” is the root cause of recent wildfires is as spurious and unscientific as stating that spoons cause obesity. In truth, many of the fires appear to have been the result of arson. In fact, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have recently arrested a number of arsonists-- who have been charged with lighting fires across the country, including in the Yukon, British Columbia and Alberta. Moreover, satellite footage from Quebec showed suspiciously simultaneous eruptions of several blazes across the province, leading to concerns that those fires, too, were the result of a coordinated effort by arsonists. Fires have also ravaged much of Greece this summer. Government spokesperson Pavlos Marinakis recently told Greek public broadcaster ERT that of 140 wildfire-related arrests, 79 were related to arson. (That’s 56% for those of you who may currently be attending an “institution of higher learning.”)

Many of the fires are at least partially the result of leaving too much deadwood and flammable material on forest floors, usually due to “environmentalists’” wishes. Of course, more folks live in more areas, and fire detection and reporting are better than in prior eras, too. And, at least in the case of Canada, one gets the impression that an all-out effort to contain these conflagrations hasn’t been made…possibly to drive home the point that global warming is going to be the death of us all, and sooner rather than later. (It wouldn’t stun me if some of the fires were set by those with an agenda.)

A recent study by Danish author and academic Bjorn Lomborg, published in the Wall Street Journal, illustrated a vast disparity between the actual number of wildfires and the attention given them by the mainstream media and politicians. 

Lomborg asserted: “Climate change hasn’t set the world on fire. It turns out the percentage of the globe that burns each year has been declining since 2001.”  

Yet, despite that inconvenient truth, the mainstream media-- and many politicians—insist that there are ever more fires as a direct result of “climate change.” In furtherance of their agenda, reporting on “climate change” has increased by 400% between 2010 and 2020.  

Now that burns me up.

White House "Asks" Media To Quit Asking Questions About Biden And Focus On Trump


The massive, bold red headline on the Drudge Report screamed: “Trump Behind Biden Impeachment Push!” That may be the dumbest headline I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something! This, of course, immediately led to questions such as: how? Especially as Biden and the Democrats have been desperately trying to imprison him lately.

The yahoo!news article breathlessly stated: “Trump has talked regularly by phone with members of the ultraconservative House Freedom Caucus and other congressional Republicans who pushed for impeachment, according to a person close to Trump who was not authorized to publicly discuss the conversations. Trump has encouraged the effort both privately and publicly. Trump has been talking to congressional Republicans (especially of the “ultraconservative” variety)? Shocking. That he might encourage them in their potential attempt to impeach Biden, the man who has sicced the DOJ, FBI, and other now-weaponized federal agencies against him for daring to suggest the 2020 presidential election was not entirely on the up-and-up is less than surprising. Especially considering the Democrats impeached him—twice—on trumped up charges that were more bogus than a John Brennan testimony.

And now we find out that the White House put out a lengthy memo on Sept. 13th, attacking the media and demanding that reporters cease and desist their inquiries about President Biden and instead focus on Republicans. This unprecedented directive itself should be enough to impeach Biden…and everyone in his administration that had a hand in it, were that possible.

From the document: 

It’s time for the media to ramp up its scrutiny of House Republicans for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies. When even House Republican members are admitting that there is simply no evidence that Joe Biden did anything wrong, much less impeachable, that should set off alarm bells for news organizations.

For years, Republicans in Congress have tried to muddy the waters by attracting media coverage of their allegations, and as they choose to move forward with impeachment, it is the responsibility of the independent press to treat their claims with the appropriate scrutiny. Covering impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable.

House Republican leaders should be held accountable for the fact that they are lurching toward impeachment over allegations that are not only unfounded but, in virtually all cases, have been actively disproven – including by witnesses and documents in their own investigations, as well as years-old congressional probes and even the former President’s first impeachment inquiry.

As you begin to cover the House GOP’s impeachment push more intensely, enclosed you will find a 14-page appendix that comprehensively addresses the 7 key lies House Republicans are suggesting they are basing an impeachment on. We hope this document helps provide you with factual information useful in your reporting on their unprecedented, unfounded claims underlying an impeachment inquiry without any evidence of wrongdoing.


There. Are. No. Words. To. Describe. The. Shamelessness. Not to mention the hypocrisy and gaslighting. “An impeachment inquiry based on lies?” Hello! Steele Dossier anyone? Total fabrication. And “the call” with Zelensky? Inquiring about the investigation into Biden corruption? You know, the investigation that Robert L Peters the Big Guy thwarted by getting the prosecutor fired by threatening to hold back $1 billion in aid?


“The American public” relies on “the independent press to hold those in power accountable?” You mean like the FBI heads who lied under oath? The 51 former intelligence officials who lied repeatedly and still refuse to apologize for their prevarications intended to take down a sitting president? President Biden and his son Hunter themselves? An independent press?! Hah! Enemies of the people they are supposed to serve.


“Without any evidence of wrongdoing?” You mean other than Hunter’s laptop, the Biden video regarding Shokin bank records, government documents, phone calls, business meetings, statements of former partners and clients, Hunter’s own words, emails, texts, WhatsApp messages and whistleblower testimony, among others?


Chuck Schumer, a fervent supporter of both the preposterous Trump impeachments, was so indignant at the prospect of a Biden impeachment that he took to the platform formerly known as Twitter to state: "I think the impeachment inquiry is absurd. The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better — not go off on these chases and witch hunts!"


“Witch hunts?” He stole that one from President Trump. Talk about appropriation!

In fact, the entire memo dressing down the media and providing them with “factual information” accused Republicans, famously timid and naïve, of doing precisely what they themselves had already done—twice—to Trump.

An independent media would scoff at such transparent tripe—and be angered by the condescension and coercion from the Biden White House.

It’s too bad we don’t have one.
