    Obama was markedly divisive, but Biden is 'far worse' and more overt, fmr president says. Former President Donald J. Trump warned that President Biden and the Democratic Party's heavy-handed pivot toward a far-left-wing and globalist governance could reach a point where future elected officials cannot course-correct and the republic as-founded will be lost. Trump joined Mark Levin on "Life, Liberty & Levin" to discuss his new book "Our Journey Together" – which features hand-picked photographs of and relating to him and his family during his 4 years in the White House. Levin noted Trump has said Biden will go down...

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 5 Dec, 2021 | Francis Menton
    Somewhere a couple of decades or so ago, the rich parts of the world embarked on a program of replacing energy from fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) with energy from intermittent “renewables” (mainly wind and solar). In trendy academic, journalistic, and otherwise progressive circles, the idea took hold that this was the way to “save the planet.” This program was undertaken without any detailed engineering study of how or whether it might actually work, or how much it might cost to fully implement. In the trendy circles, there took hold a blind faith in the complete ability of the...

    The audacity of these self-appointed guardians of all that should matter to its readers is astonishing. Readers of Stacey Lennox of PJ Media, Dec. 3, 2021, were presented with some disturbing facts. On Nov. 8, 2021, the American Heart Association Journals published the abstracts that researchers and clinicians would present during online sessions beginning Nov. 13. These presentations are peer-reviewed and vetted thoroughly by the scientific community. They often represent the cutting edge of scientific knowledge on a given subject and, like all genuine scientific research, have no political agenda. Their only agenda is advancing scientific knowledge by presenting research...

    Yes, the death toll is horrific – if you are a power-hungry totalitarian wannabe looking for an excuse to impose controls on your citizens. Brendan Cole reports for Newsweek: The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that as of Friday, there have been no fatalities linked to Omicron but warned it could take several weeks to determine how infectious the new COVID-19 variant is. The WHO's assurance comes as the new variant first detected in South Africa last week has now been recorded in 38 countries. In the United States, at least 29 cases of Omicron across 11 states have...
  • US intelligence says Russia is planning an invasion of Ukraine early next year with up to 175,000 troops

    Russia is planning a possible military offensive against Ukraine involving an estimated 175,000 troops that could begin as soon as early 2022, according to a report on Friday. An unclassified intelligence document, obtained by The Washington Post, showed satellite images of troop and equipment build up around the border with Ukraine. Photos taken in June around Yelnya, near the northern border between Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, showed empty land. By November 9, five Battalion Tactical Groups (BTGs) were in place, the photos showed. In 2014, similar scenes were replicated along the Russian-Ukrainian border near Crimea before Russia seized the strategic...

    American Mind ^ | 10/6/21 | Thomas D. Klingenstein
    This excerpt is from Claremont board chairman Thomas D. Klingenstein’s speech, “Winning the Cold Civil War.” In a traditional totalitarian regime, the government uses arbitrary violence to control every aspect of public and private life, all the way down to little league. In America, the government does not control everything. But today, through the power of the purse and the courts, the government influences a lot. And where the government leaves off, the cultural business complex takes over. Education, corporate media, entertainment, big business, especially big tech, are to varying degrees aligned with the Democratic Party, which is now controlled...

    Cowardice and courage on the question of China. China is ruled by an increasingly totalitarian regime that uses technology to spy on its citizens. It is, at this moment, carrying out a genocide against its Uyghur Muslim population. It regularly vanishes people who dare to dissent. And it wants to control the terms of debate, politics and business worldwide. Having disappeared doctors and scientists who tried to blow the whistle on Covid-19, the Chinese Communist Party has now targeted Peng Shuai, a tennis star who accused a former top Chinese government official of sexual assault. “Even if it is like...

    Democrats reward the leftist corporate media with your money for lying to you. Early on, it was evident the Democrats’ “Build Back Better” plan had two objectives. The first was to assuage the concerns of their voter base as blue state governors and bureaucrats were encouraged to weaponize pandemic lockdowns and other restrictions so as to decimate a booming economy and defeat President Trump. The not-so-implicit message: Whatever you lose now to help defeat Trump will be more than made whole under the Biden Administration. Leaving nothing to chance, this reassuring message also helped to buttress the proposed “Build Back...

    Why aren't D.A.s and judges charged when career criminals they let out on zero or low bail kill or maim again? Isn't it their job to protect society? I believe that it is correct in the Michigan killings for the parents to be charged. They were extremely negligent and culpable. Why aren't school administration officials charged for letting a dangerous kid back in class without even checking his backpack? Why aren't D.A.s and judges charged when career criminals they let out on zero or low bail kill or maim again? Isn't it their job to protect society? They certainly have...

    Needless to say, given that this is the EU and that government officials adore the power of the COVID, normal people won’t like the plan. One of the most heinous things the Nazis did was medical experiments on people. Mengele was famous for his obsession with twins, whom he cruelly tortured, but the Nazis liked to do insanely cruel things to all sorts of captives. The Nuremberg Code was enacted to stop this from ever happening again, but individual European states and now the entire EU are ready to scrap the code.

  • The other, more alarming, Peng Shuai-like disappearance story

    American Thinker ^ | 4 Dec, 2021 | Alan Calandro
    Although Peng Shuai’s story has sex and sports, making it media fodder, a more significant person vanished from view in 2018—and no one seems to care. Much media coverage has been devoted to Peng Shuai, a Chinese women’s tennis player, whom her Communist Chinese government apparently “disappeared.” However, the head of Interpol disappeared too, and that deserves more attention. Because Peng was an international figure and used social media to claim a “high-ranking government official” in China sexually assaulted her, the media was eager to cover her disappearance—mostly because of the political popularity and sensitivity to the #MeToo movement. After...

    What do these 'smash and grab' robberies plaguing cities such as San Francisco say about the participants? The facile assembly of large mobs of miscreants to raid retailers in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles is even more alarming than it seems. The events are novel and even a bit entertaining, posing only a minor challenge to law enforcement if police are permitted to intercede. More important than the incidents per se, however, is what they may reveal about the participants. Lootings have been widely reported, mainly on the West Coast. At Union Square in the heart of San Francisco:...

    We hear that inflation is only “transitory,” which is a vague enough sounding word to make the threat of your money losing value seem benign. And when that threat became real after months of high inflation, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell eloquently stated “’Transitory’ is a word that people have had different understandings of.” Americans know that inflation poses a very significant threat to their long term financial wellbeing, especially wage workers and the elderly. And while many in our government seem unconcerned about inflation, they’re also taking steps that indicate they know it’s around for the long term. 1.Social...

    Over $800,000 in taxpayers’ money was spent on legal efforts by the Democratic Party to overturn an election for the House of Representatives last year, according to the Washington Free Beacon. The election took place in Iowa’s 2nd congressional district, where Republican Marianette Miller-Meeks narrowly defeated Democrat Rita Hart by a margin of just six votes, out of nearly 400,000 votes cast. Hart refused to concede even after an official recount, after which the office of Iowa’s Secretary of State certified the results in favor of Miller-Meeks. Earlier this year, Democrats utilized the power of the Committee on House Administration...

    Unvaccinated Germans will no longer be allowed into “restaurants, pubs, cinemas, gyms, cultural events, and non-essential shops,” according to multiple reports. German parliament, meanwhile, is considering a vaccine mandate for all Germans beginning early next year, potentially joining Austria in making the experimental COVID jabs compulsory for the entire population. Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the sweeping new restrictions on Thursday, saying unvaccinated people will be barred from many public places unless they have recently recovered from COVID. “Culture and leisure nationwide will be open only to those who have been vaccinated or recovered,” Merkel said. “We have understood that the...

    The investigation into the 2019 Dayton, Ohio mass shooting shows the Bureau cannot be trusted to identify left-wing violence. ro-Antifa social media accounts are taking a victory lap this week following the announcement that the FBI has ruled out a political motive in the 2019 Dayton, Ohio mass murder of nine people, carried out by Antifa supporter Connor Betts. One of the victims was Betts’ sister. Betts interacted with multiple Antifa-aligned accounts online, including the Socialist Rifle Association (SRA), a Marxist group whose members commonly provide armed support during Antifa actions. Betts himself attended Antifa protests while armed, and made...

    There is way too much student anger; anger that has been seeded and nourished by school boards, administrators, and teachers. I sent my daughter off to high school this morning with a blend of regret and fear. There are threats against schools all over the map of Michigan today; copycats in the wake of the Oxford shootings. This is not a healthy way to live. In fact it occurs to me that there is way too much student anger; anger that has been seeded and nourished by school boards, administrators, and teachers.

    A few weeks into Joe Biden’s presidency, I had the following thought: How many articles, opinion pieces and stories can be written and/or reported about one person’s utter stupidity? At some point, the sheer repetition of pointing out Scranton Joe’s uselessness as a leader, speaker, role model and human being would become background noise. It’s now just accepted that this man has no discernable virtues as a leader, no abilities that come to the fore, and is possibly the most annoying blowhard that has ever been in government. None of this is a revelation to anyone who has been awake...

    Universities and corporations are desperate to hire people whose sole job is to tell you how racist you are. In a recent discussion about the "wokeness" situation in American universities, Prof. Kimberly Johnson presented a table showing the salary compensation data for DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion) personnel at Michigan State University (MSU) in 2018–2019. It contains 82 full-time positions ranging from a modest $42,000 salary for the administrative assistant to $408,000 for chief diversity officer (that's just above the salary of the POTUS, at $400,000). The total annual compensation for DEI staff at MSU is $10.6 million. Isn't that too...
