  • Rantz: Inslee brings vaccine passports, segregation to stadiums, colleges, churches

    Washington state now has vaccine passports, thanks to Governor Jay Inslee. He won’t call them vaccine passports because it’s politically unpopular. But under his newly unveiled guidance, Washingtonians would have to quite literally show their vaccine papers to enjoy special privileges or basic rights like the public education you’ve paid for. Under the power of the state, the Inslee administration is encouraging private organizations and religious institutions to create vaccinated-only sections in their venues. Inslee is not merely promoting vaccine segregation; he’s even forcing people to use separate entrances when entering venues. Inslee is even allowing public and private schools...

    The vulnerability of political freedom and popular sovereignty to tyranny has been a constant theme in political philosophy for 2500 years. It profoundly influenced the creators of the Constitution, an important purpose of which is to forestall the tyranny that destroys political freedom and citizen rule. In the writings of Classical philosophers and historians the Founders could see the blueprint for such a tyranny––one we have seen unfolding in the last few decades, and accelerating in the policies of the current administration. The Greek historian Polybius in the second century B.C. laid out how a democracy degenerates into tyranny:So when...

    Three judges from the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento ruled unanimously that the prior judge “erred in interpreting the Emergency Services Act to prohibit the Governor from issuing quasi-legislative orders in an emergency. “We conclude the issuance of such orders did not constitute an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power,” Presiding Justice Vance Raye wrote in ruling on a lawsuit brought by Republican state legislators.

    House Representative and professional race baiter Maxine Waters declared that America is becoming more racist every day while firing off a fusillade of lies: “Well, you know I don’t know if he was counseled to say that or whether he really believes that. If you really believe that, then he has missed not only the history of the country but what is going right now. As we watched the invasion of the Capitol on January 6, those people following Trump say they were taking back their government, and they were willing to harm people. As a matter of not only...

    The current President’s record of lying is alarming. In 1998, Biden lost his first bid for the Presidency because the media actually reported he was a repeat plagiarist. He became president this time around at least in part because, in 2020, the mainstream media did not report his record of plagiarism. The Democrats of today also either chose to ignore his history or did not research their candidate, instead accepting the left-leaning media’s narrative at face value. As a candidate, Biden announced his campaign with the “Charlottesville Lie”: The claim that President Trump was referring to Nazis and White supremacists...

    In 1964, Stanley Kubrick released a dark comedy classic titled “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.” The title captured the absurdity of getting people to embrace the concept of weapons of mass destruction. The movie came to mind recently with the public campaign of Facebook calling for people to change her attitudes about the Internet and rethink issues like “content modification” – the new Orwellian term for censorship. The commercials show people like “Joshan” who says that he was born in 1996 and grew up with the internet.” Joshan mocks how much computers...

    The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that a hospice that declined to participate in administering assisted suicide cannot stay in business. The Delta Hospice Society, located in British Columbia has resisted demands that it must kill its residents if that's what they want done. The Court explicitly rejected the argument that the refusal to participate in terminating a person's life was an allowable option. "Even though there are other fully participating hospitals and hospices that a patient or resident could freely choose, the Government's policy is that assisted suicide is for the collective benefit of all," the Court said....

    The Democratic Party’s Stasi The Biden Justice Department is “the shield and the sword”—the motto of East Germany’s Stasi—for the Democratic Party, protecting its own corrupt ranks while terrorizing any and all detractors. While reading emails in his bedroom last Wednesday morning, Paul Hueper heard a loud commotion inside his house. Still clad in pajamas, the Alaska business owner ran to his dining room to see what was happening.Hueper found himself face-to-face with several armed FBI agents, guns drawn, barking orders to him and his wife, Marilyn. The agents had kicked down the front door of their home in Homer,...
  • 'If you disobey, we will prevent your children from being educated': Tucker Carlson slams colleges for forcing students to get COVID vaccine before returning to campus

    Tucker Carlson has condemned American colleges and universities for requiring students to get vaccinated against COVID-19, arguing that such mandates 'forbid kids from getting an education'. The Fox News host - who has been clear that he is personally pro-vaccine - ripped into the mandates that have already been adopted by more than 100 schools on his show on Monday night. He asserted that schools forcing students to provide proof of vaccination is part of a larger campaign by Democrats to take bodily autonomy away from citizens.

    Joe Biden is in a pickle. He wants to continue to convince Americans they should get the experimental biological agent (AKA "the vaccine"), but, as Tucker Carlson pointed out last week, the administration and the CDC have offered no explanation as to why you need to continue to wear a mask after you have taken "the vaccine." Why would they want us to doubt the efficacy of the vaccine? Why would any sane person who is not in a high-risk group contemplate becoming a lab experiment subject if you are not allowed (yes, our rights are now derived from government...

    When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, gave in his Noble Lecture the credo, “Let the lie come into the world. Let it even triumph. But not through me,” that was based. Not participating in transparent lies or mass delusion is based. Doing so against the madness of the following crowd is based. Nearly everything that it means to be based is either contained within or predicated upon this one trait of character. Solzhenitsyn wrote those words as a result of his observations living in what may have been the most brutal tyranny of human history: Stalin’s USSR. That...

    So what is next? It’s not a question of the vaccine. You may want the vaccine for yourself and your children, you may not. It’s a question of being forced to take it. And if we allow ourselves to be forced to take it, what next? Anything is the answer to that question. If the authorities are permitted to control a health care decision this intimate — if they can force you and your children to take a vaccine you don’t want and are afraid of — what can’t they do? Nothing. They’ll have total power over your body and...

    On Easter Sunday this year, Calgary pastor Artur Pawlowski was confronted by police who interrupted his service. Their mission: to disrupt his service by checking for compliance with local COVID guidelines. Pawlowski ejected them from the church by loudly stating "Get out Nazis!", "Gestapo not wanted here!" and other similar phrases. At first, the health department representative tries to talk to the pastor, demanding access to the church. She was denied. After a short standoff, the health department representative and her police escort are themselves escorted out of the church by Pawlowski. A video of the incident has since gone...

    Despite the man’s obvious innocence, the woke mob turned on him with a vengeful fury. Kelly Donohue thought that life was wonderful. He’d won not once, not twice, but three times on Jeopardy!. Perhaps for his family’s benefit, or maybe just to boast, with each win, he’d flash a small hand signal showing the number of wins he’d had. Little did he know, but that third victory signal is allegedly a hand symbol that White supremacists flash to each other. Even though he obviously acted innocently, the vicious woke mob took his victory and turned it into ashes. You must...

    Fast rising tension between Israel and Iran may well end badly, and in part we have the Biden administration to thank. On April 11 a presumed Israeli sabotage of Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility damaged the enrichment plant and that was quickly followed by the launch of an Iranian missile that landed near Israel’s secretive Dimona nuclear reactor. These actions are only the latest tit-for-tat attacks that risk escalation of tensions which could well become an open conflict and yes, the U.S. would be drawn into the fight. Clearly tensions are rising and already involve the U.S. military. On April 27...
