Back in April 26, 2021, Daily Mail posted these comments in an article.

I’ve never been on a protest march in my life.

They usually cause chaos for hardworking folk attempting to go about their day to day business and usually include smelly troublemakers who would be much better off attempting to make changes via channels that are more likely to lead to real change.

But I respect people’s democratic right to protest under any circumstance and appreciate it’s a cornerstone of a free political system.

That’s why I’ve been so disturbed to see the virtual media blackout of the massive anti-lockdown protests in London over the weekend.

The BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky News have devoted hundreds of hours over the past year to less well attended demonstrations by Black Lives Matter, anti-statue, Extinction Rebellion and women’s rights supporters.

Yet the thousands of folk who turned up to march against the biggest erosion of our freedoms and civil liberties in modern history are given short shrift.

At an earlier point in my life, I would never have believed something like this. If there were truly massive protests in the streets then, I would hear about it on the news. No amount of media would be able to hide something so blatantly public! Now, I’m not so sure.

There have been millions of people protesting pandemic lockdowns worldwide and I wonder how many people in the United States are even aware. Here are some videos on the events, in case you missed them.

Lockdown protests in Australia [July 26, 2021]

Lockdown protests in Canada [ July 24, 2021]

Lockdown protests in Paris [July 24, 2021]

Lockdown protests in London [June 26, 2021]

Lockdown protests in Greece [July 23, 2021]

Lockdown protests in Italy [July 24, 2021]

Lockdown protests in Ireland [July 25, 2021]

I think this will happen in the USA very soon. Actually, it may have already happened and I just don’t know because its not been reported in the news. Maybe the police are threatening them? Or maybe the limited media coverage is not as honest as it could be? Not sure. What do you think?

The Things I Think About Podcast

Are you keeping up with my podcast? I’ve been talking to a lot of people recently and as a result, I might make my podcast daily. What do you think? So, far I’m undecided. That being said, check out my latest episode.

Trent Gadner and I had no set agenda which is why its fascinating me how we ended up focused on weapons, martial arts, society’s view of men and the need for a manly rite of passage in our country. This was certainly one of my favorite conversations and I think it will be one of yours. Don’t miss it.

President Biden lied. Should we cancel him?

When I was reading through my 50+ news sources for information to share with you today, I thought about sharing news with you that “they” don’t want you to see. What do I mean by that? Most of the mainstream media is leftist with its narratives, meaning that any news counter to that is ignored, scoffed at or censored. Their goal is not to give you news objectively and without agenda, it is intended to influence your worldview. I am doing the same thing with the data I share but, with a few key differences.

  1. I am not pretending to be a journalist. I share facts that are bundled with my opinion in hopes that you will adopt conservative values or that your pre-existing conservative values are reinforced.
  2. I do not want you to accept what I share as your only source of data. Please consider it a starting point to your own research on the matter, as I would hope you do with the news you consume elsewhere.
  3. If there is information out there that contradicts what I share, I would be the last person to try to cancel it. In fact, I would not try to censor any information that is contrary to my opinion or the facts I share. I feel that sunlight is the best disinfectant so, the more information, the better. The truth will always win out.

All that being said, here are some facts, bundled with my opinion. Enjoy.

Should President Biden be cancelled for spreading misinformation?

President Trump was cancelled on Twitter and the left praised big tech for it. The reason Twitter permanently blocked President Trump was out of fear that he might incite violence. To quote Twitter on the action…

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company said in a tweet.

A Twitter employee was quoted as saying…

“A lot of us are so happy, and so proud to work for a company that did the right thing,” the employee said.

So, if one President was cancelled because of what he might do, it stands to reason that another President should be cancelled for what he has actually done. In the case of President Biden, he has spread misinformation about covid vaccines and that data is on Twitter. I am referring to the tweet below.

What President Biden said was not true, to put it mildly. There are multiple news reports that refute this. Here are just a few of them.

This tweet is almost poetic with its irony.

An article from The Hill gives more context.

Three Texas House Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., to block the passage of a sweeping elections overhaul bill have tested positive for COVID-19. The caucus said in a statement that one member tested positive for COVID-19 late Friday evening. That member immediately informed the rest of the caucus, and members and staff then took rapid testS. 

Saturday morning, two additional members of the caucus tested positive, the statement said. The caucus didn’t release the names of the members but said all three lawmakers were fully vaccinated.

Like I said, irony.

‘Vast majority’ of Covid-19 cluster in Cape Cod were vaccinated

Here are some quotes from a recent Free West Media article.

In Cape Cod, a geographic cape extending into the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts, the vaccinated are falling ill with Covid-19. The American town with one of the highest vaccination rates in the state, now has the highest rate of new cases. An official told ABC News on Monday that the “vast majority” of the 132 Covid-19 cases were among vaccinated individuals.

Further down in the same article it reads…

Dr. Janet Whelan, a member of the Provincetown Board of Health, confirmed that the vaccinated could be spreading the Coronavirus: “The most interesting thing to me about this cluster of cases is so many of the people infected were vaccinated, which sort of means that a lot of the people that are vaccinated who are exposed to it may feel safe, but may also transmit it to others.” ABC News however dismissed the spread as being “not a major concern”.

ALL BUT ONE!

In Sydney, Australia, there are 141 new COVID hospitalizations. ALL OF THEM WERE VACCINATED, except one. [As of July 25, 2021]

Stops asking questions! Shut up and take your jab.

Last week, Tucker Carlson noticed that the VAERS database, which tracks pandemic deaths, seemed to glitch. The reported deaths dropped from 12,313 to 6,079. Why did that happen? Which is the accurate count? And why is it when you ask the government, “Just how many people have died from covid vaccines?,” you get so much resistance?

I am not anti-vaxx but…

I believe that any medical decision should be between a patient and their doctor. While I am grateful for what vaccines have accomplished in the past, like many Americans, I am against mandates that compel vaccinations where Covid is concerned; especially when the Food and Drug Administration has yet to fully approve them. I mean, Nuremberg, anyone? In case you are unfamiliar with what I mean by “nuremberg,” take six minutes and watch this video. Here is a quick quote from the video to intrigue you.

Dr. Reiner Fuellmich is the public front man for an international team comprised of hundreds of lawyers and medical experts who have begun legal proceedings over the CDC, the WHO, and the Davos Group for committing crimes against humanity.

The protocol for the PCR test given by the WHO and the CDC was knowingly set to a level that guaranteed 100% false positives or false negatives. So there is no pandemic.

This is all about getting people to take the shot. Their argument is that we are at the very least being subjected to an illegal experiment, and at the worst, global genocide.

Dr. Fuellmich points out how the experimental jab is in clear violation of all 10 of the Nuremberg codes, which carry the penalty of death for those who violate them.

Why Is The CDC Quietly Abandoning The PCR Test For COVID?

This quote from ZeroHedge is quite interesting. PLEASE, please, please read the entire article so you get the full context. It is definitely, food for thought.

So, in summary, with regard to our current “casedemic”, positive tests as they are counted today do not indicate a “case” of anything. They indicate that viral RNA was found in a nasal swab. It may be enough to make you sick, but according to the New York Times and their experts, probably won’t. And certainly not sufficient replication of the virus to make anyone else sick. But you will be sent home for ten days anyway, even if you never have a sniffle. And this is the number the media breathlessly reports… and is used to fearmonger mask mandates and lockdowns nationwide…

Now, I’ve seen it all

There are a lot of incentives for getting the Covid-19 vaccine. Among them: free donuts, free beer and free money via the NYS Lottery “Vax and Scratch” tickets. The list seems endless. But now, you can add one more. Depending on the crime, in some cases you can get a reduced sentence if you take a covid vaccination shot. I kid you not.

And, I’ll just leave this here.

If you want a long list of statistics to give you pause enough to rethink what some are calling “The Covid-19 Pandemic Hoax” then, you MUST review this long list of VERIFIABLE FACTS. Below are just a few examples.

According to the latest immunological studies, the overall lethality of Covid-19 (IFR) is about 0.1% to 0.3% and thus in the range of a severe influenza (flu).

Even in so-called “Covid-19 deaths” it is often not clear whether they died from or with coronavirus (i.e. from underlying diseases) or if they were counted as “presumed cases” and not tested at all. However, official figures usually do not reflect this distinction.

There is still little to no scientific evidence for the effectiveness of cloth face masks in healthy and asymptomatic individuals. Experts warn that such masks may interfere with normal breathing and may become “germ carriers” if used repeatedly.

Several media were caught trying to dramatize the situation in hospitals, sometimes even with manipulative images and videos. In general, the unprofessional reporting of many media maximized fear and panic in the population.

A 2019 WHO study on measures against pandemic influenza found that from a medical perspective, “contact tracing” is “not recommended in any circumstances”. Nevertheless, contact tracing apps have already become partially mandatory in several countries. In some countries, such “contact tracing” is carried out directly by the secret service.

In my most recent podcast, I asked, “What is woke culture doing to our children?” My guest – Bracha Goetz, a prolific children’s author and I discussed the issue. I wish I had read a certain NewAmerican article prior to or, I would have brought up the trend of children cancelling their parents. Check out this quote

It was shocking to us that our children canceled us for being who and what we are; we have tried to be good and true parents, faithful and patriotic. We are heartbroken, blame ourselves, blame our children, reach out and plead and cajole, pray and pray and pray and ask others to pray, too.

… This is happening to many middle-class families. For example, I met a friend the other day, and she told me she has several friends whose children are canceling them. One of them is a mother with whom my friend was close as their kids grew up. She said this person was an excellent mother, but now her son will have nothing to do with her and is calling her an abusive mother.

My friend’s own son canceled her and her husband, too. The son told his mother that everything they taught him was a lie. Before he canceled them, he forbade his mother to talk to him about God anymore.

Years ago, my children also told me I was not allowed to talk to them about God anymore.

Both of us told our children that we would not proselytize, but we could not promise never to mention God because we are people of faith; it is who we are.

When my husband posted on Facebook about our plight, more than a few friends responded that they were going through the same things. One mother said her three children will have nothing to do with her anymore and had recently left her out of a family wedding. She said she is also a person of faith.

Providing yet more detail, Boddie points out that her kids hated President Trump with almost demonic passion. She mentions that it upset their daughter when she and her husband expressed concern to their governor, Jared Polis, D-Colo., about lockdowns (they then apologized to her). But the January 6 trespassing incident was the final straw; even though the Boddies weren’t even in Washington, D.C., that day, their children disowned them. All communication ceased.

When I read that, my reflex was to think that this was an unfortunate occurrence. Spoiled and ungrateful children have been around for ages and such attitudes would likely dissipate over time as blood is thicker than water. Family is first and such bonds are very, very difficult to disintegrate entirely. Even in those cases where children have been abused, the longing for love and acceptance from parents remains.

It is my belief that family is where our values are formed. We observe our parents and internalize their values and expectations. As a result, we model our behavior after theirs and eventually, our ways become fixed. Ancient wisdom bears this out and science confirms the truth, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Now imagine that you are wedded to Marxist ideology and you desperately want your worldview to proliferate within the United States. How would you go about it? One method might be to convince parents that your leftist way of thinking is best with the hopes that it filters down to their children and thereby, your ideals survive another generation. Another course of action is to deal directly with the children themselves and circumvent the will of the parents. That second tactic has been implemented by schools pushing critical race theory (CRT) to the chagrin of parents vehemently opposed to the doctrine. (Every time I see parents standing up against it, my heart smiles inside.) And in that struggle is a startling revelation, at least it was to me.

As I see it, the fight over CRT is not solely parents battling school systems. It goes beyond that. I think at its core, the battle over CRT, is really over who has the ultimate responsibility over your children? You or the state? Sound weird? Bear with me as I prove a point. Here is a quote from NY Post which references a page on the Black Lives Matter website that was removed due to criticism.

The group, whose co-founder Patrisse Cullors has described herself and fellow co-founder Alicia Garza as “trained Marxists,” removed a page titled “What We Believe” that included its public policy positions as well as describing itself as part of the “global Black family” — a change first reported Monday by the Washington Examiner.

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable,” the website formerly read.

The page, which was no longer available Thursday, also said BLM aimed to “dismantle the patriarchal practice” that leads to mothers having to work double shifts to make ends meet.

In case you are curious, you can see the missing BLM page here and read it for yourself. The “western-prescribed nuclear family structure” being referred to is a mother and father caring for their kids in a family unit. Why the animosity towards the traditional family structure? Blame it on the father of Marxism – Karl Marx. His views on the traditional family were discussed in the FEE article, “Black Lives Matter’s Goal to ‘Disrupt’ the Nuclear Family Fits a Marxist Aim That Goes Back a Century and a Half.” I quote…

“Abolition [Aufhebung] of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists,” Marx wrote. “On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie.”

Marx and Engels proceeded to compare the nuclear family to public prostitution, before explaining why it was natural and desirable for the institution to “vanish.

The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital,” Marx and Engels wrote. “The bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parents and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry, all the family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labour.”

From where does this hostility to the family stem? Marx and Engels offered clues.

“The modern family contains in germ not only slavery (servitus), but also serfdom, since from the beginning it is related to agricultural services,” Engels wrote in The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State, quoting Marx. “It contains in miniature all the contradictions which later extend throughout society and its state.”

The hostility to the traditional family did not die with Marx and Engels, however. One of the first steps the Bolsheviks took after seizing power was to begin a decades-long struggle to abolish marriage and weaken the traditional family.

“The issue was so central to the revolutionary program that the Bolsheviks published decrees establishing civil marriage and divorce soon after the October Revolution, in December 1917,” writes Harvard historian Lauren Kaminsky. “These first steps were intended to replace Russia’s family laws with a new legal framework that would encourage more egalitarian sexual and social relations.”

Classic Marxists wanted to destroy the family because they saw it as a model of exploitation. Men exploit their wives and parents exploit their children, all for “private gain” (aka capitalism). Moreover, families are a way of instilling hierarchy (aka servitus) and respect for authority which they believe will reproduce class inequality (aka serfdom). Although I have not heard it articulated this way with modern Marxists, the spirit of classical Marxism seems consistent. This is why I am not surprised when I hear how the left wants to destroy suburbs or call women “birthing people” or write books like “Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family” or encouraging women to work rather than stay home to care for their new born babies or that children really belong to “the whole community” and not their parents. It is all a concerted effort to destroy families.

Hmm… Let me give some context to my point about children belonging to the community and not parental units. Back in 2013, MSNBC released a promo video featuring Melissa Harris-Perry, host of a weekend morning MSNBC show. In the (now) infamous video she said that Americans must grow beyond the idea that children belong to their parents.

To quote the video:

“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility,” Harris-Perry said. “We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children.

“So part of it is, we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.”

But, I digress. I started off this article describing how families are being broken up due to differences in values; children cancelling their parents. I wish it was not a trend but I fully expect it to continue and with greater ferocity. Unless the encroaching Marxist march is not halted in America soon, the phenomenon of younger generations (indoctrinated into Marxism) cancelling the elders in their family (who hold traditional values) will only get worse. All that being said, I think the following quote encapsulates the spirit of the modern Marxist movement perfectly.

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side.’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'”

~ Adolf Hitler

God gives me hope for the future of America

NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. All tips are welcome.


There are a lot of things wrong in the world today. If you focus too much on the negative then, you become depressed and lose hope. I think many of us have. However, today, I saw something that gave me hope. Consider this quote from Lifesite

Nearly 30,000 men attended the 2021 Promise Keepers Men’s Conference last weekend in Dallas, Texas with hundreds of churches hosting even more men online.

The two-day event aimed to bring a positive message that would inspire transformation and empower men so they could return home equipped to lead their families, communities, and country. On Thursday, Promise Keepers (PK) tweeted, “God did some amazing things” and that was only the first day. 

Day 1 was unforgettable.

30,000 men focused on God is a good thing because at the very least, it may inspire men to live up to their paternal responsibilities and that is a fix for many of society’s problems. Ponder these stats.

  • The percentage of children without a father in the United States is 43% (US Census Bureau)
  • 90% of runaway and homeless children are from fatherless homes (National Institute of Justice)    
  • The percentage of a rapist with rage that came from a fatherless home 80% (National Institute of Justice)

Wow! Democrats are Truly Terrified of a Trump Comeback

Wow! Democrats are Truly Terrified of a Trump Comeback

Trump Derangement Syndrome is real. Its to the point that new laws are being constructed to specifically target Donald Trump. Doubt me? Follow this stream of consciousness because maybe I’m the crazy one.

Rumors have been circulating that Trump would be interested in being Speaker of the House, something he did not dispel when he talked to conservative radio host Wayne Allen Root.

Radio host Wayne Allen Root suggested Trump campaigning for a spot in the House of Representatives before taking on the challenge of winning back the White House in 2024 during an interview the two had in June, The Daily Mail reported.

“Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats,” the host said.

“Then you become the speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden,” he said. “You’ll wipe him out for this last two years.”

“That’s so interesting,” the 45th President of the United States said. “You know, it’s very interesting.”

No matter how interesting that sounded to President Trump, it was a non-starter. The Washington Examiner put that rumor to bed weeks ago. To quote…

Former President Donald Trump had left the door on becoming speaker of the House open, but his spokesman shut that scenario down.

Jason Miller, the former president’s outgoing spokesman, said Trump “has zero desire to be speaker.” Prior to Miller’s pushback, the former commander in chief called the possibility of becoming the next speaker, should Republicans take back the majority in 2022, “so interesting.”

Still, that was a Trump spokesman and not President Trump himself. Could President Trump’s mind be changed? Possibly. Maybe that’s why this went down from Democrat Pennsylvania Rep. Brendan Boyle.

My impression of this is, in a word, wow. The fear is so real, its palpable. Read this Newsmax article for more context.

Election Integrity and Democrat Hypocrisy: An Interview with Professor David K. Clements

If you are a fan of Tucker Carlson or watch Steve Bannon’s War Room then, no doubt you are familiar with my guest – Professor David Clements. He is quickly becoming the authoritative voice on election integrity. In my chat with him, we discussed the suspicious events surrounding the 2020 Presidential Election, the hypocritical reactions of Democrat leadership and how everyday Americans are fighting to save the republic. This episode is sure to inspire as it reminds us all what the true spirit of America is all about.

Today was not a good day to be Dr. Fauci

If you Google Black Lives Matter then, you are a White Supremacist

Now this is yet another reason why you should dump Google for DuckDuckGo. Here is a quote from Fox News.

According to Defense One, the contractor Moonshot CVE, which has ties to the Obama Foundation, is working on data that would identify which military bases and branches have the most troops searching for domestic extremist content. While that particular project’s contours are unclear, the company previously released a June report, in conjunction with the left-leaning Anti-Defamation League, on purported “White supremacy trends in the United States.”

So, what is an example of a search for domestic extremist content? Searching for “the truth about black lives matter.” To quote the same article further.

For “the truth about black lives matter,” the group said: “This search suggests that the BLM movement has nefarious motives, and is a disinformation narrative perpetuated by White supremacist groups to weaponize anti-BLM sentiment.”

It adds: “While the search phrase appears innocuous, several books include it in their title and allege that the BLM movement is ‘joined with Antifa burning and looting.’ These sources echo White supremacist disinformation narratives alleging that BLM protesters are trying to ‘overthrow the republic’ and ‘harm American citizens in a Marxist coup,’ as a means of delegitimizing it. Multiple videos on YouTube also promote these narratives – in particular the criminalization of BLM – using the identical phrase.”

I’ve done searches along this line for research purposes. For the record, I am not a white supremacist. However, it would not stop the left from accusing me of being one.

Google ADMITS employees listen to conversations recorded by Google Assistant even without a user’s ‘Hey Google’ trigger

This quote from The US Sun is further validation for me on why I do not have such devices in my home.

Sources also told IndiaToday the company admitted that its AI assistant will at times record audio on a smartphone or smart speaker even when it hasn’t been summoned. Google clarified how the assistant system works in a statement to Android Authority.

“In standby mode, the device processes short snippets of audio (a few seconds) to detect an activation — like when you say, ‘Hey Google.’

“If no activation is detected, then those audio snippets won’t be sent or saved to Google.”

The statement also noted that when the Assistant detects its wake word, “the recording can include a few seconds before you activate your Assistant to catch your request at the right time.”

Google has previously admitted that employees listen to short recordings to improve language comprehension in its products.

I suppose the question really is, do you trust Google to not eavesdrop when they clearly can? Moreover, do you trust them to tell you (verses telling the government) if they do?

Hahahahahahahahaha… oh wait, they were serious?

CNN announced with great fanfare that they’re creating a “CNN Plus” streaming subscription service for the first quarter of 2022. Chief digital officer Andrew Morse laid it on thick in the press release: “As the most trusted and recognized name in news, CNN has unrivaled global reach, world class talent and a deep existing library of content, including award-winning series and films.”

But it became truly bizarre/hilarious when Morse told the “Strictly Business” podcast at Variety there would be no “political slant” to CNN Plus content. Andrew Wallenstein tried to define the personality of the new venture.

WALLENSTEIN: Is it more irreverent? Is it less traditional? Is it more ideological, I have to ask? Is it going to be something that, you guys are known as the liberal network, and if you really want to go “deep lib,” here’s CNN Plus?

MORSE: I don’t think anyone who’s looking for “deep lib” would seek out CNN. It’s just not what we do. But no, it’s not going to be ideologicalWe’re just not in that game. We’re not an opinion network, we’re a news network.”

Hahahahaha… whooo… Thanks Newsbusters for that chuckle. I needed that one.

THANK YOU!
