    Biden 'has replaced in-person meetings with video calls. He allows only a limited number of people in the building...He doesn’t leave the White House often…. He isn’t planning any foreign or domestic trips.'78-year-old President Joe Biden is nowhere to be seen, aside from sporadic television appearances through a black mask the size of a Rawlings baseball mitt, or appearing to be on the verge of collapse from dehydration in social media videos. On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Biden’s name will not appear on the $1,400 COVID-19 stimulus direct payments being sent out to millions of Americans...

    Hong Kong’s descent started in 1997 when the Chinese Communist Party took over the city from the British government. Since then, for more than two decades, Hongkongers have witnessed the CCP’s gradual erosion of their freedoms. The pandemic presented the CCP a perfect opportunity to accelerate its control of the city and its 7.5 million residents.Last summer, Beijing imposed a draconian National Security Law on Hong Kong, bypassing Hong Kong’s local legislature. Dennis Kwok, a pro-democracy legislator in Hong Kong, said Beijing’s action “basically means the end of ‘One Country, Two Systems.'” Hong Kongers and the rest of the world...

    Unfortunately, faculty and staff members in Jefferson County, WV just found out that it doesn’t matter if the voters in that county voted overwhelmingly to reelect President Trump, all it takes to put your livelihood in jeopardy is to have a bigoted and fascist school superintendent who is completely ignorant of the provisions in the US Constitution. These educators are now in jeopardy of losing their jobs. Nearly 30 teachers in Jefferson County, West Virginia that attended the rally at the Capitol in Washington DC on Wednesday are now being threatened with termination. A letter was sent to the teachers...

    As my listeners and readers can hopefully attest, I have been on a lifelong quest to understand human nature and human behavior. I am sad to report that I have learned more in the last few years, particularly in 2020, than in any equivalent period of time. One of the biggest revelations concerns a question that has always plagued me: How does one explain the "good German," the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime? The same...
  • An Excellent Quote by Matt Walsh on Imaginary Oppression

    “I don’t know if the world has ever seen anything like this. A bunch of people who live lives of freedom and relative luxury choosing to destroy their country because they’ve convinced themselves that they are the victims of a completely imaginary oppression.” -Matt Walsh on Imaginary Oppression I think this quote by Matt Walsh on imaginary oppression, like the Matt Walsh quote on leftism, is spot on. The Americans that are protesting and rioting right now aren’t protesting anything real. No oppressive force is ruining their lives, whether they’re white or black. They live lives of luxury, freedom, and...

The speaker is named Jason, and he is a Trump supporter. In beginning of the video, Jason shows some of the footage from the Georgia polling place where they continued counting ballots after everyone else had gone home.At 3:27, Jason says:“In this case, these two Republican poll watchers swore in affidavits that the lady running the polling place announced that ballot counting had finished for the night,...

    WASHINGTON (RNS) — A Democratic group dedicated to representing secular values unveiled a slate of recommendations for President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming administration on Monday (Nov. 30), outlining a sweeping agenda designed to roll back many of President Trump’s actions involving religion and to “restore a vision of constitutional secularism.” The 28-page document, crafted by the Secular Democrats of America PAC, is being presented to the incoming administration by Democratic Representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman — both co-chairs of the Congressional Freethought Caucus. The SDA’s agenda offers a wide range of policy recommendations to push back against the so-called “Christian...

    This week, devout Catholic Joe Biden spoke with Pope Francis and says "I received both his blessing and congratulations on my landslide victory in the election." Biden described the Pope as "a cool guy. He totally understands the difference between matters of faith and matters of politics." "For instance, we both know that government promotion of abortion and suppression of religious activities is wrong from the perspective of the Catholic faith. But we both understand that in a democracy the majority's will prevails. Though I personally shed a tear for each child killed by abortion, as a leader of a...

    This is an appropriate reminder considering the state of the Union.

    "In March we panicked," said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. "Not just in America, the world panicked and threw out the old plan." Dr. Bhattacharya teaches medicine at Stanford University, where he researches the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. With 135 articles published in top peer-reviewed journals, his credentials are impeccable. "The old plan" relied on the time-tested public health measures that successfully eradicated diseases like polio and smallpox, not the total lockdowns implemented in 2020. In response, Dr. Bhattacharya and colleagues from Harvard and Oxford authored the Great Barrington Declaration, which expresses "grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental...

    Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson says he favors Trump over Biden in the upcoming election. "As a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don't know anytime," Johnson said. "I absolutely do not know what a President Biden would do. I haven't heard anything coherent from him." Former Vice-President Joe Biden defended his decision to refuse to clarify where he stands, calling it "not my job. No president should have his hands tied prior to being elected. If I were to reveal my plans now that would only stir up needless controversy. It is...

    We have watched our society slide into a disturbing trend of permissiveness when it comes to assaulting and removing aspects of our culture. Between evictions of historical monuments, the eradicating of entertainment properties and the condemning of commonplace practices, we have almost become conditioned to accepting these efforts. Now we may be seeing the effects of this movement metastasizing. The Wall Street Journal delivered a lengthy treatise that looks at a normal aspect of American life, one that almost nobody looks at as being a nefarious component in our existence, with contempt: driving pickup trucks. Using "almost" is the qualifier here,...

    The communist government of China took steps to increase its control over the residents of Hong Kong. First, it was announced that the United Kingdom passports held by an estimated three million residents will no longer be honored. Second, 12 pro-democracy candidates were removed from the ballot in the upcoming election. Chinese ambassador to the UK, Liu Xiaoming explained that "under our laws all resources belong to the collective. This includes the people. No one has the right to subtract himself from the collective without the permission of the governing authorities. The United Kingdom's offer of refuge to persons trying...

    In a bid to rescue Hong Kong residents from being oppressed by the Chinese Commuinist Government's crackdown on dissent in the semi-autonomous region, the government of Australia has offered pathways to permanent residency for people fleeing. China's Ambassador Cheng Jingye denounced this offer, calling it "an infringement on our right to control our people. Unlike Australia, we are a collectivist society. All persons residing within our borders are ours to do with as we please. The attempt to impute western ideas alleging individual rights to free speech, free enterprise, and free movement to the people of Hong Kong have no...

    The Chinese Government controlled Global Times mocked America's battle against the pandemic saying "the inability to dictate top-down solutions is frustrated by squeamishness to violate so-called individual rights like privacy and freedom of speech. This inherent weakness is why China will rise to dominate the world for the next 1,000 years." Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash) made a bid to rebut this assertion by pointing out that "I have established a surveillance protocol that will require private businesses to record the names and addresses of customers. This information will then be kept on file until needed. I have also set up...
