Thought for the day
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it" -- Mark Twain
Noted journalist, HL Menchen, once said the following:
“The most dangerous (individuals) to any government (are those) able to think things out…without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos.”
Their inevitable “conclusion is that (their ruling regimes are) dishonest, insane, and intolerable.”
“In his book, titled a “Race to Incarcerate,” Marc Mauer discussed America’s obsession with imprisonment, punishment, and the commodification of prisoners to fill beds — harming society’s most vulnerable.
They’re targeted for supporting ethnic justice, racial emancipation, as well as political, economic and social equality across gender, ethnic and racial lines, then locked away in the “Land of the Free.”
Popular social media account Libs of Tiktok declared on Sunday that they had uncovered additional evidence of trans activist and blamed rapist Eli Erlick’s illegal drug trafficking scheme.
"It appears it’s been going on since at least September, 2021," announced Libs of TikTok, sharing a screenshot from Erlick’s Instagram page that showed his blatant disregard for the law. Number 6 on a list of 11 "mantras" Erlick wrote was to "Redistribute your extra hormones to people who can’t access/afford them."
On Saturday, Libs of TikTok shared an Instagram post from the trans-identified biological male from May that publicly detailed his scheme to send prescription hormones to "trans youth" through a distribution network.
The viral post caught the attention of the Daily Wire's Matt Walsh, who announced he would make it his "personal mission" to see Erlick face consequences for his confessed crimes. In response, Erlick tagged Walsh and Libs of Tiktok in an Instagram story that bragged, "Thanks for the free advertising."
Progressives reimagining classic and historic characters into their image is now standard fare. And with the latest news of the planned reimagining of Robin Hood as a “black female ‘Gen Zer,’” it’s time for something novel – reimagining characters as anti-woke.
On July 29, Bounding into Comics reported that Global TV is beginning production on Robyn Hood, a series that is reimagining “the English archer of legend as a young, black, female ‘Gen Zer’.” Jessye Romeo will portray the eponymous character.
And what will the Canadian series be about? Looks like it will feature a stunning and brave storyline.
“The synopsis ultimately concludes with a hint towards the series’ actual plot, teasing, ‘When Robyn finds herself fighting for her home and her family against local property developer John Prince and The Sheriff of New Nottingham, Robyn and her band The Hood decide to fight back, righting the wrongs of the corrupt elite to give back to the people who are living under their regime.’”
So, it will go exactly as you’d expect it to go. It’s going to be the latest in a long line of the entertainment industry reimagining classic characters into progressive propaganda.
While all eyes are focused on the 2022 midterm elections, there are some looking forward to 2024 and the race for the White House. And while former President Donald Trump is busy holding rallies, another possible contender is also heading out to support GOP candidates around the country.
Trump-endorsed GOP candidates, at that.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, currently the runner-up and second favorite among Republicans for 2024, is headed out to Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio, and Pennsylvania for upcoming rallies. Those battleground states will have a huge impact on how things shape up in the next Congress.
It’s a shame to have to point this out, but the United States Senate is considering legislation so inappropriately titled that it might come right out of the bizarro episode of Seinfeld. Nevertheless, while the country is reeling from the onset of a recession coupled with near-double-digit inflation, the most left-wing elements of our policymaking body in Washington seem to have convinced Senator Joe Manchin that down is up, wrong is right, and pain is pleasure.
Make no mistake: the policy proposals contained in the hilariously named “Inflation Reduction Act” would be folly in good economic times. In the current environment, however, they represent outright recklessness.
The Left is playing chicken with the possibility of a depression, and they need to be called out. This agenda, if enacted, would do nothing for Floridians and everything for the bureaucrat class in D.C.
General Mark Milley reportedly vowed to fight then-President Donald Trump in 2020 “from the inside” and dared those opposed to his actions to arrest him.
Milley, currently serving as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – a role he was nominated for by Trump – was quoted in a new book as having realized that Trump was “doing great and irreparable harm.”
Following an incident in which a decision was made to remove rioters from Lafayette Square during a protest in June of 2020, the General, according to excerpts from the book, The Divider: Trump in The White House, Milley vowed to fight rather than resign.
“Fuck that shit,” he allegedly told his staff at the time. “I’ll just fight him.”
Accelerating the total destruction of America — exactly as planned — Democrats gleefully passed the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” that even Bernie Sanders says won’t reduce inflation. Because inflation is the product of an expanded money supply — see Inflation.news to stay informed — this massive government spending bill will only increase inflation while handing out hundreds of billions of dollars to the green energy sector, IRS agents and wealthy corporations.
One of the most alarming aspects of the bill is the $80 billion that’s earmarked to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, unleashing “tax terrorism” against the American working class while the wealthy elite continue to pay almost nothing in taxes. Although these 87,000 new IRS agents will likely spend a few years just opening the backlog of mail currently piling up in IRS offices across the country, at some point they will turn their attention to America’s working class, weaponizing the IRS to target conservatives, small business owners, Trump supporters, Christian churches and pro-2A non-profits. (Note, too, that the math on this comes out to nearly $1 million per IRS worker…)
Under Democrat control, of course, every institution of Big Government becomes a weapon to be wielded against their political opposition. The IRS was already weaponized under Obama (remember Lois Lerner?), and now under the Obiden regime, the IRS is going to be transformed into a domestic terrorism organization much like the FBI, a criminal cartel that plots and carries out terrorism attacks in America in order to heighten its own importance while placing the blame on “extremism” (which the FBI defines as anyone who believes in America).
Earlier this week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed back against the mainstream media’s growing monkeypox hysteria and said Florida would not be declaring a state of emergency.
During a press conference Wednesday, DeSantis compared the developing monkeypox outbreak to the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, arguing that — then and now — politicians were only interested in creating fear in order to restrict people’s freedoms.
“I am so sick of politicians, and we saw this with COVID, trying to sow fear into the population,” DeSantis said. “We had people calling, mothers worried about whether their kids could catch it at schools.”
Former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik said Monday he is worried Democrats might try to assassinate former President Donald Trump.
Trump’s home was raided by the FBI beginning Monday morning in connection with documents that were not turned over to the National Archives by the former president upon leaving office. According to the New York Times, 15 boxes containing classified documents were taken by FBI agents who raided Trump’s office and broke into his safe.
Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump told Fox News the former president was aware of the raid and why. She added that he took memorabilia from his time in office which he rightly owned. She said he had been negotiating the return of some of the material.
The Department of Justice has not commented publicly on the raid, but Kerik claimed on Newsmax TV he is afraid for Trump’s life.
Kerik joined The Balance with host Eric Bolling, where he said he feels Trump is in grave danger – not only from politically-motivated prosecution – but from the threat of death.
Webmaster addition: I agree! I am very worried for Trump.
A prototype flying submarine drone has already been built and tested in a research lab at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, reports the South China Morning Post.
The stealth drone is driven by four propellers, including a pair at the front that tilt.
It glides under the water with a pair of large wings folded over its back, giving it a classic streamlined submarine shape.
At the surface, the wings pop out at it soars into the air at 75mph - twice as fast as an ordinary drone powered by rotor blades.
With criminals beginning to use deepfake video technology to spoof an identity in live online job interviews, security researchers have highlighted one simple way to spot a deepfake: just ask the person to turn their face sideways on.
The reason for this as a potential handy authentication check is that deepfake AI models, while good at recreating front-on views of a person's face, aren't good at doing side-on or profile views like the ones you might see in a mug shot.
The raiding of an ex-president's home and personal office by the FBI, three months before an election, is a deeply shocking and jarring event - even by the standards of 2022.
When the news broke Monday evening, there was jubilation on the left and fury on the right.
Even 'Never-Trumpers' and voters who've cooled on Trump as a political figure were voicing their intense anger.
Political journalists and the White House were caught off guard by the news and there is a mad scramble to determine what this historic event means - both legally and politically – for Trump, the upcoming midterm election and the presidential election going into 2024.
I am not a lawyer. But I am a political analyst. And there are three things I know to be true:
Firstly, the American public has a historically low-level of trust in our institutions and the people who run them.
Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon believes that suppression of conservative thought has picked up in recent months, and he isn’t quite sure of the cause, but feels liberals are "redefining what’s true" and Big Tech is enforcing their ideology through terms of service agreements.
"I don’t know if it’s due to the midterms, I think they’re just getting more aggressive with making their own ideology into these terms of service," Dillon told Fox News Digital at CPAC Texas.
"We’re looking at Big Tech’s stance on hateful conduct, for example. They’re putting their ideology into the terms. They’re saying you can’t misgender, you can’t deadname. Now, you can’t say things like the word groomer to describe behavior," Dillon continued. "Even if you think it is, in fact, grooming behavior. It’s considered a slur… they’re protecting their own."
If the Chinese don’t end their blockade of Taiwan, the Biden administration will be under immense pressure to respond. So let us hope that cooler heads prevail in China and that a decision is soon made to end the pointless “military exercises” that the Chinese are currently conducting. When the live-fire drills were first announced, we were told that they would last for only four days. That was supposed to be it. On Monday, they were supposed to go home. But that didn’t happen. Instead, on Monday the Chinese announced that the military exercises in the waters off Taiwan would be extended, and no new end date was given…
Fox News host Mark Levin went nuclear on Monday night in response to the FBI raid on Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence on Monday, reportedly in connection with documents that the former president took home after leaving office in 2021.
"This was well orchestrated, so this has been going on for weeks," Levin told host Sean Hannity. "Now, you keep asking your guests, what’s the justification? There is no justification. What’s he going to say tomorrow, the attorney general? Here’s my guess: ‘We’ve been negotiating with Trump and his lawyers since February when we found out they had this information. We were getting nowhere, and then we know or we heard that some documents were being destroyed."
Levin also noted that photos shared by New York Times columnist Maggie Haberman purporting to show official documents with Trump's handwriting on them in White House toilets.
(Except... it isn't Trump's handwriting)
Webmaster addition: And when you toss something in the toilet, you immediately press the flush handle. You don't leave it there to be photographed!
Yuri Kot says Russia should launch one missile at Washington and a second at London if anything happens to the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant
Despite record low support ratings, President Joe Biden might be on the path to obtaining a historic achievement last seen during the presidency of John F. Kennedy, White House chief of staff Ron Klain said.
Referring to a forecast from FiveThirtyEight, Klain said Democrats now hold an advantage over Republicans for control of the upper chamber in the fall.
If Democrats took seats in November to increase their Senate majority, “that will make President Biden the first Democratic president since JFK to gain Senate seats in his first midterm election,” Klain told CNN on Monday.
Eric Trump said his father, Donald Trump, had nothing in a safe that the FBI looked into as part of a search of the former president's Mar-a-Largo resort on Monday.
The second son of the 45th President said he was with his father in New York City when they discovered about the search, and he suggested that it was related to records that Donald Trump took back with him to his resort in Florida after leaving office.
"Today, to have 30 FBI agents, actually more than that, descend on Mar-a-Largo, give absolutely no notice, go through the gate, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet, you know — they broke into a safe. He didn't even have anything in the safe," Eric Trump told Fox News.
Donald Trump said in a statement earlier Monday that his Florida home was "under siege" by the FBI and claimed agents "broke into [his] safe."
Eric Trump, who is an executive Vice President at the Trump Organization, said his father "saves" and keeps extensive records of things such as press clippings, pictures, notes from his children, letters from his ex-wife, and more.
Most Latinos think the country should focus less on helping migrants enter the United States, a priority of the Biden administration and Democratic Party, according to a new poll.
Just over half, 51%, of Latino adults residing in the U.S. said it is more important for the country to help immigrants escape poverty and violence in their home countries than secure America’s borders and help U.S. citizens, Axios/Ipsos concluded in a poll published over the weekend. The poll did not ask respondents about their immigration status or if they were registered voters.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has made a lot of international waves lately. Days ago, China was infuriated by her choice to visit the island nation of Taiwan.
China views Taiwan as nothing more than an extension of itself. Therefore, the communist regime loathes the idea of anyone showing legitimacy to Taiwan as its own nation.
The Chinese communist regime even went as far as threatening to have the House Speaker’s plane blown out of the sky if she visited Taiwan. Yet, Pelosi still went through with the visit.
In light of the House Speaker’s decision to visit Taiwan, she’s now taking heat from not just the Chinese Communist Party, but also North Korea.
We have just been through over two and a half years of total tyranny, leading to complete totalitarianism. The country’s slave-class (voluntarily) accepted home prison called lockdowns, they accepted the forced loss of their jobs, they accepted the loss of most all their freedom, they accepted state staged riots, property destruction and brutal violence, all allowed by the state, they accepted a loss of most all mobility to travel, they accepted wearing deadly masks by order, and they accepted experimental poisonous bioweapon injections by the hundreds of millions.
They lived with purposely manufactured food shortages, they lived with loss of income at the hands of the hypocritical monsters in political office, they abandoned their families and friends, they lost all decent medical care, (what little there was) they lived with mass state murder that is democide, they reported their neighbors and shunned all who did not comply with state-mandate idiocy, and they crawled under rocks pretending that nothing was amiss.
They watched as trillions of fake dollars were printed, (theft of property) stolen and fed to the banking and corporate masters, they watched as a staged war in Ukraine became the fodder for stupidity world-wide, they watched as prices doubled, tripled, and in some cases went up a hundred fold almost overnight. They watched as police beatings increased dramatically, allowed mass shootings staged by government and ignored by police, and they watched as the state threatened and are now implementing the poisoning and killing of children by lethal injection with fake ‘vaccines.’
Australia’s central bank has unveiled plans to examine the potential economic benefits of introducing a central bank digital currency (CBDC).
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) said in a statement on Tuesday it would carry out a year-long pilot project to explore “innovative use cases and business models” for a CBDC and gain a better understanding of technological, legal and regulatory considerations.
Apple has allegedly told its suppliers based in Taiwan Friday to follow Chinese customs relations and label products “Taiwan, China” or “Chinese Taipei,” following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent visit to the nation’s capital city, Taipei.
Outrage was the word of the night among Trump supporters on Monday after news broke of the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida, home. The unprecedented invasion of Mar-a-Lago quickly took precedence over Republicans’ consternation over the Senate’s passage of the inaptly named “Inflation Reduction Act.”
Famed conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon, whose resume includes serving as former vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party, as well as being an expert on civil liberties, issued a laundry list condemning actions of the FBI in the wake of its raid on the home of former President Trump.
