  • Nolte: Dear Gun-Grabbers, What’s Best for ‘Society’ Is Not My Problem

    If you’re a man. I don’t mean a guy. I don’t mean a male. I mean, if you’re a man, your top priority, obligation, and, yes, privilege, are the safety and well-being of your family. That’s it. That’s the only responsibility that matters. And anyone who puts anything — including what’s best for society — ahead of that responsibility, who neglects his family or who sacrifices his family’s safety and well-being on the altar of some greater good, is not a man. I own nine firearms, all of them loaded, all of them spread throughout my house. If you were...

  • "The subversion process" Liberalism has learned well from the KGB !

    Charted here In 1970, Yuri Bezmenov, a 31-year-old KGB officer specializing in propaganda, defected to Canada. Bezmenov (also known as Tomas Schuman) was sickened by the oppressive nature and toll of communist totalitarianism, and wanted to devote his life to educating Western nations, America in particular, on what he and the KGB had been doing to us, to undermine and ultimately destroy our societies. In 1984, Bezmenov published a small book, Love Letter to America, in which he explained, in great detail, how the Communists running the USSR were working to destroy America—not using physical weapons, but through what he...
  • Biden's Publicly Stated COVID Agenda Can Be Summed Up In Six Words

    I mean, are you shocked by this revelation? Joe Biden pretty much says he has no immediate plan to combat the coronavirus. None. It can be summed up in six words: “there is nothing we can do.” Okay, that’s not exactly fair. He said, there is nothing we can do for several months. We’re in cruise control, but that’s not what he told America on the campaign trail. He didn’t say we're going to coast for the better part of a year with no plan to voters. It was ‘I’m going to stop it and Trump is at fault.’ ‘Trump...

    Last month, I was thrilled to see Morocco become the fourth Arab nation in the past several months to announce that it would establish full diplomatic relations with Israel. It’s yet another step towards peace in the string of groundbreaking developments that began last summer with the historic Abraham Accords. Even today, Morocco and Israel have just signed an agreement allowing for direct flights to operate between the two nations. Before these recent developments, Morocco had already begun to blaze a trail for harmony among Muslims and Jews. They hold a reputation for tolerance and diversity that can serve as...

    MADISON — Tax and spend Tony does it again — this time looking to tax the small businesses his administration has driven to the brink of extinction with lockdowns and other COVID-19 health edicts. Gov. Tony Evers’ Department of Revenue last week quietly issued guidance that ignores federal COVID-19 relief legislation language on tax liability and aims to tax tens of thousands of Wisconsin businesses that received funding through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). “Gov. Tony Evers and the DOR are looking to skim the federal money that came down to our small businesses so they can grow the coffers...
  • CBS: Now That Biden Is Here, Hopefully ‘Dark Days’ of USA Racism Are Gone

    All three networks on Inauguration Day played a 90 minute special devoted to praising America and patriotism. And while one can question timing of the special (this didn’t happen four years ago), the content was positive and patriotic. ABC and NBC mostly used the half hour prior to the special with panels. CBS, however, offered a segment on how racism may finally be ending now that Joe Biden is president. Reporter Peter Van Sant re-interviewed children the network talked to during Donald Trump’s presidency. These kids were either undocumented or minorities. Apparently, though, bigotry is now finished. Talking to one...

    Vatican Advisor: Francis Shows That Climate Alarmism Is “Not” a Leftwing CauseFrancis makes it "very clear" that climate alarmism is "not a partisan issue," the German economist Ottmar Edenhofer told leftwing TheGuardian.com (January 15).A former Jesuit, and professor of “Economics of Climate Change” in Berlin, Edenhofer was appointed as an advisor of the Vatican's Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.In the Vatican, Edenhofer plans to propagate “climate refugees” and the idea that rich countries which are "more responsible" for toxic emissions should pay money to poor countries.Francis is for him an important influencer, "We cannot underestimate that the pope is...
  • States Weigh Making Financial-Aid Applications a High-School Graduation Requirement

    Wall Street Journal ^ | January 23, 2021 | Melissa Korn
    Lawmakers in at least eight states are pushing legislation this year that would require high-school seniors to complete federal or state financial-aid applications before they can graduate, part of a broad effort to guide more high-school students toward college. Supporters say the mandates would bring postsecondary education within reach for millions more young adults by helping them claim billions of dollars in grants for which they are already eligible, and ultimately help improve the economy by creating a more educated workforce. They also hope that requiring the forms—or even compelling students who want exemptions to meet with guidance counselors—would provide...

    "It is midnight within the social order." Martin Luther King Jr. said this in a 1967 sermon called "A Knock at Midnight." He based it on a passage from the 11th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, where Jesus asks: "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him'?" There's something about our interconnectedness in that passage that seems especially important during a time of isolation. King said: "Although...
  • COVID: Pfizer, Moderna, and Other Vaccine Makers Get Legal Immunity for Some Time

    In February 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act a 2005 law. The legal protection lasts until 2024. World governments are coordinating to get the coronavirus vaccines to as many people as possible. People who take the COVID vaccines and experience side effects won’t be able to sue Pfizer or Moderna, and likely the U.S. government will not compensate you for damages. Under the PREP Act, pharma giants like Pfizer and Moderna have total immunity from liability in the case if something unintentionally goes wrong with their approved vaccines.

    Editor's Note: This column was authored by Nick Lindquist.What if I told you there was a way to transport oil and gas in a way that minimizes environmental risk, reduces carbon emissions, and generates more economic activity? Well, there is—it’s called the Keystone XL pipeline and Joe Biden canceled it on his first day in office. The Keystone XL is a 2,000-mile pipeline project that would transport oil from Alberta, Canada all the way to Texas for refining. The project has faced pushback through the whole process. From President Barack Obama rejecting the permit requests to contentious court battles, the...
  • Restaurants and Bars Account for Less Than 2 Percent of New COVID-19 Cases in New York

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that private gatherings account for the vast majority of new statewide cases, while less than 2 percent are coming from bars and restaurants. Cuomo referenced a statewide contact-tracing data set, which collected information on how new cases have spread from September to November. According to the data, 74 percent of new cases have come from private social gatherings. The troubling information in this is that 74 percent of new cases are coming from household gatherings and living room spread," Cuomo said. "In many ways, you can understand what happened. You close bars, you close...

    This week, we witnessed one of the biggest farces in this history of our nation: the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This duo is so popular that they had – maybe – a crowd of 2,000 people attending the ceremony, guarded over by 25,000 military troops (some estimated as many as 65,000 troops) as well as heavy artillery in the form of "crew-served machine guns." As one D.C. worker put it: "If you need all this to protect your inauguration from the people, maybe the f-ing people didn't f-ing elect you." Others are suggesting we refer to this...

    President Trump's fulfillment of campaign promises resulted in increased support among minorities, including from Hispanics in Florida, Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Texas. In Starr County, Texas, which is 96% Hispanic, for example, Joe Biden won by only 5 points, a swing of more than 25 points from the 2016 election, noted Republican activist Rachel Campos-Duffy in an article for The Federalist. Nearby Zapata County, Texas, which is 85% Hispanic and historically Democrat, has turned Republican, increasing its support for Trump by 15% since 2016. So how can legacy media continue to insist that Trump is racist?

    A prayer during the swearing-in of the 117th Congress on Sunday, January 3, by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), ended weirdly. In the ludicrous attempt to be inclusive, Cleaver concluded his prayer with the words “Amen and Awomen.” As we’ve witnessed, the Left has wrestled control of public discourse and is enforcing a new, stricter political correctness edict. Congress, under the demented "leadership" of Nancy Pelosi, is absurdly banning words such as father and mother. It didn't take long for the ultra-flaky Ms. Pelosi to break her own rules. If only the lunacy was confined to Congress… This just in! In...

    The pods, which are made from wood and steel, were put in parks and other places, a spokesman for the city said. To shield the homeless from the wind and cold, the beds have been equipped with thermal insulation. They are also big enough for use by two individuals. There are no cameras, and when they are in use, sensors are triggered. Those behind the project, amid some delays, announced that they had eventually been rolled out just as the weather began to take a turn for the worse.
