Fauci – A Villainous Power-Craven Political Climber

from Conservative Review/the Federalist:

It’s Clear Now Anthony Fauci Isn’t A Fool, He’s A Villain

Lies upon lies, poetic injustice, arrogance, and an agenda that harmed millions of people. A novelist couldn’t have written him better.

A trove of thousands of emails released as the result of a Freedom of Information Act request show that, since the beginning of COVID-19, Anthony Fauci has been just as mendacious as some of his worst critics have alleged. read more

Transgenders for 3 Year Olds – What’s Wrong with That?

Nothing is sacred anymore, at least not to the left. Not even our children. There is no other way to describe this other than it’s just plain sick. When we on the right say, and have said for years, “they’re coming for your kids,” this is what we meant.

The left understands that to shape society, you have to get the kids. And get them as early as possible. read more

Another State Steps Up Against Critical Race Theory

Imagine where we’d be without States Rights in this country.

Imagine if the many Red States throughout America didn’t have the Constitutional authority to control their own States – didn’t have the authority to disregard the out-of-control leftist federal government.

Thank Heavens we don’t have to, because the short answer is we would be toast. But there are a number of conservative legislatures and Governors who are make a real difference and preserving the America we know and love. And just as importantly, pushing back against leftist insanity. read more

Pandemic Addiction has become Part of Identity Politics

by: Brent Smith

Nathanael Blake at the Federalist nails it, as he describes how many on the left have gotten so used to masking up and locking down, that’s it’s actually become part of their identity.

It seems many have become addicted to being shut-in, addicting to the idea of safety at any and all cost.

It reminds me of the Bruce Willis movie, “Surrogates.” read more

The Big 6 are limiting Free Speech

by: Brent Smith

Technology has proven to be a very worrisome double edged sword. On one hand, it has never been easier to disseminate your views and opinion.

You can self-publish an entire book for next to nothing, start your own news, opinion or entertainment website. You are able to “go live” on the internet whenever the spirit moves you.

But on the other hand, if your news, opinion or entertainment is somehow displeasing to the corporation providing you the platform, the corporation, not the government, is who you have to fear from them shutting you down.

It is a strange time we live in that we have to fear both the power of the government and so-called private industry. But which is to be feared most?

from the Federalist:

Is Big Business Now A Greater Threat To Free Speech Than Government?

As I wrote in a preceding essay, the First Amendment was written to limit the government’s power. In the 18th century, only the state was conceived as possibly wielding the power to keep free people from speaking their minds. Thus, if maintaining a free people requires free speech, it followed that the government must be kept from controlling speech. For a long time, no more was necessary, but that would change.

As the United States grew in population and prosperity, there was very little agitation against business. There did not need to be. Most businesses were small affairs, owned by one man or one family, employing a handful of workers. Relations between labor and management were dealt with between individuals.

In 1854, Abraham Lincoln summarized this small-scale economy, speaking of a system in which a man “may look forward and hope to be a hired laborer this year and the next, work for himself afterward, and finally to hire men to work for him! That is the true system.”

Yet as corporations grew in size and power, that “true system” changed. Instead of one apprentice negotiating with an owner, a company that employed thousands would tell workers what they would get: take it or leave it.

In response, workers began to join together in trade unions, leveling the playing field, although diminishing their own independence. The balance between workers and management was restored, but the growing power of corporations still overpowered that of individual consumers.

Antitrust and utility laws were the response, but none of this much affected the realm of free speech. There was no news monopoly — newspapers were more plentiful than today — and restrictions on the new technology of radio came from the government, not the station owners. The biggest threat to the practice of free speech remained the state.

After Her Veto is it Time to Reexamine Gov. Kristi Noem?

Republican Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, has done some real good in her State. And she’s been praised by conservatives for it. She is the next great ideological conservative, next to Florida Governor DeSantis.

But true conservatism is all about consistency and ideals, not necessarily pragmatism. It’s certainly not about the perception of whether one can win or not – and if not, than don’t even try. It’s about doing what is right, because it’s right.

It’s about signing the State’s Transgender Sports Bill because you know it’s the right thing to do, regardless of real or imagined backlash. It’s about serving the people of South Dakota. read more

Video Podcast – Von Mises Knew Who the Dems Are

by: Brent Smith

According to the Mises Institute, Ludwig Heinrich Edler von Mises, born 1881, died 1973, was “One of the most notable economists and social philosophers of the twentieth century.”

Von Mises knew exactly who the democrats were and are today.

And I discuss his most famous quote and how applicable it to today’s democrats. read more

The Teacher’s Union is Bad News

by Brent Smith

Public Unions are bad news. And the worst of them is the Public sector Teacher’s Union.

They are the definition of two wolves and and sheep deciding on what to have for dinner. One wolf is the government, the other is a government Union, and our kids are the sheep. The Public Sector negotiating with the Public Sector to decide the fate of private citizens. Sounds fair.

It’s always been this way, but never has it been more defined than it is today.

And The Federalist makes the point rather nicely. read more

Schools are Becoming Increasingly Worthless

from the Federalist:

Your Kids Would Be Better Off Feral Than Going To Schools That Make Them Anti-American Racists

Critical Race Theory in a Nutshell

State-sponsored instruction that makes your child a dogmatic racist relativist is not worth any benefit you feel schools give in return. Not a single one. Being Mowgli would be better.

To obtain or keep teaching licenses, Illinois now requires all K-12 teachers to indoctrinate their students in critical race theory, destructive lies about sex and gender, and other leftist mind poison. The rules clearly communicate that in Illinois public schools are no longer places to learn, but places children will be lied to, manipulated, and warehoused as wards of a corrupt and malevolent state. And this kind of schooling is spreading nationwide.

Every decent parent, family, and church should refuse to allow this kind of instruction to be inflicted upon the children in their care, and assume personal responsibility for securing their genuine education outside such anti-public schools. Those who do not are abdicating their sacred duty to teach their children to love and know the truth.

The new Illinois rules require teachers to demonstrate that they “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.” It clearly specifies that these include incorporating into all their teaching and curricula neo-Marxist falsehoods about race and sex, and actively discriminate based on religion, viewpoint, and race. The rules require teachers to:

  • Directly oppose and undermine the concept of objective truth: “Understand and value… that there is not one ‘correct’ way of doing or understanding something, and that what is seen as ‘correct’ is most often based on our lived experiences.” This is an exercise in forcing people to affirm two contradictory things, as the rest of the requirements are extremely dogmatic, not open to any other “way of doing or understanding something.”

 

  • Treat themselves and students as a determined product of their race, sex, and sexual behavior: “Recognize how their identity (race/ethnicity, national origin, language, sex and gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical/developmental/emotional ability, socioeconomic class, religion, etc.) affects their perspectives and beliefs about pedagogy and students.”

Transgendering Children is Psychological, Cognitive and Physical Abuse

by: Brent Smith

If you’re an adult male like say, Bruce Jenner, and you want to pretend you’re a woman, even to the point of pumping yourself with a bunch chemicals and even surgeries to tamp down the man you are and bring out your “inner woman,” knock yourself out. I couldn’t care less. Live however you wish. It shouldn’t bother anyone.

Walt Heyer

But if you’re a parent, guardian or in the case of the article below, a grandparent who decides one day that a young boy should be a girl or vice versa, then we should all have a problem. Pure and simple, that’s child abuse.

Early in his life, Walt Heyer was convinced by his grandmother that he should be girl, and for a long time, it practically destroyed him. Lucky for him, after a life of self-abuse, he had the will to conclude, on his own, that what he was convinced by others of was the wrong path. Heyer also speaks of the HBO documentary “Transhood.” I have not seen it and won’t, but knowing HBO, it likely somehow glorifies transgenderism.
