This past weekend, the Group of 7 (G7) met together to discuss world events, global strategies and how to advance the free world. For those that don’t know, this is how Wikipedia describes the G7.
The Group of Seven (G7) is an inter-governmental political forum consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Its members are the world’s largest IMF-advanced economies and wealthiest liberal democracies; the group is officially organized around shared values of pluralism and representative government. As of 2018, the G7 accounts for close to 60% of global net wealth ($317 trillion), 32–46% of global gross domestic product (GDP)[n 1] and for about 770 million people or 10% of the world’s population. Most members are Great powers in global affairs and maintain close economic, military, and diplomatic relations.
It ain’t over until its over and baby, it ain’t over yet!
If you mention the 2020 Presidential election irregularities to Democrats, you will likely see eyes roll or mockery about conspiracy theories. If you ask Republicans, likely you will hear how the election was stolen and that Biden is an illegitimate President; in similar vein to what Hillary Clinton has said ad nauseum about President Trump. In politics, such rhetoric is to be expected by the winners and losers respectively. However, something different is happening now that is gaining traction by both sides of the political aisle, despite the best efforts of the mainstream media.
Consumer price inflation is experiencing its most significant increases in decades. Yet, reported inflation does not capture the full scale and breadth of experienced inflation. I never thought the US would experience rampant inflation again, but based on the 1970s price measurement methods, the US experienced double-digit inflation in the past twelve months.
In May, the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.6%, pushing the twelve-month increase to 5%, the most significant increase since 2008. Core CPI rose 0.7%, lifting the twelve-month increase to 3.8%, the largest increase in almost three decades. As substantial and broad as the gains in reported inflation are, it’s essential to the point that experienced inflation is significantly higher.
Sheela Shenoi, MD, MPH, a Yale Medicine infectious diseases specialist, adds that even as COVID-19 cases are declining in the U.S., rates of infections and deaths are still high in other parts of the world. “I hesitate to say that we are approaching a post-COVID world when so many are still being ravaged by this virus,” she says. “If there is anything we should have learned in the past 16 months, it is that we are all interconnected; what happens in one part of the world affects everybody.”
Even if COVID-19 numbers start to plummet everywhere, doctors say it might be a good idea to consider wearing the masks that offered protection from SARS-CoV-2 to reduce transmission of other viruses, like seasonal flu and the common cold. Masks can also be used as a barrier against the pollen that causes those miserable seasonal allergies.
On CNN’s “New Day” on New Year’s morning, the network’s Fareed Zakaria was asked how U.S. Russia policy under President Joe Biden might differ from policy under President Trump. “I think, in general, there isn’t going to be as much difference as people imagine,” Zakaria said. “The Biden folks are pretty tough on Russia, Iran, North Korea. You know, the dirty little secret about the Trump administration was that while Donald Trump clearly had a kind of soft spot for Putin, the Trump administration was pretty tough on the Russians. They armed Ukraine. They armed the Poles. They extended NATO operations and exercises in ways that even the Obama administration had not done. They maintained the sanctions. So I don’t think it will be that different.”
The dirty little secret? It was never a secret at all. All of the actions Zakaria listed were well-known public policy during the Trump years. Any of Zakaria’s colleagues, at CNN and in the press as a whole, might have cited them. But many instead chose to contribute to the media’s Russia hysteria that began even before the president was inaugurated and continued through the years of Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Since the inauguration of Joe Biden, the price of crude oil has risen 25 percent, from $53.24 per barrel to $70.91 as of this article’s publication.
“Russia is a gas station with a flag,” McFarland said. “Russia needs high energy prices — that’s its only export — and so by pushing the world price of oil down … and by making the United States the world’s major energy source, we were in a great position, but [Joe Biden] has reversed all of that.”
If Biden’s policies are clearly hurting America and benefiting Russia, where is the “Russia, Russia, Russia” outrage over Biden being a political pawn of Putin? Sigh. So much propaganda.
A growing number of BLM chapters are calling for accountability from the BLM Global Network amid reports of co-founder Patrisse Cullors’ lavish spending, including purchases of multiple homes totaling upward of $3 million, reports Fox News.
Cullors last month stepped down as BLM foundation executive director amid questions about her finances, though she denied that was the reason she was leaving.
The New York Post in April reported on Cullors’ purchase of four homes for $3.2 million, an article that prompted Hawk Newsome, head of BLM Greater New York City, to call for an independent investigation into the foundation’s finances.
Welcome to another podcast Saturday! Here are the episodes I produced this week. Enjoy!
Who Is More Racist, Democrats or Republicans?
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media, I found out that Hunter Biden is quite comfortable using the “N” word. The revelation made me wonder which political party is the most overtly racist? Well, I did a bit of research to find out. Tune in to see what I discovered.
America is NOT a racist country (and I can prove it!)
A recent survey revealed that black people agree that race relations are worse under Biden than when trump was in office. When I read that it occurred to me that if someone really wanted to know the state of race relations in the USA, three data points would be undeniable: the rate of interracial marriages, interracial families and interracial adoptions. What better measures could there be of total acceptance than that? In this episode I share some very compelling stats.

More great podcasts from the Freedom First Network!
Freedom Squad: Dr Karlyn Borysenko, DeAnna Lorraine & Doni Anthony – Freedom Squad is a weekly show hosted by Jeff Dornik which brings a panel of freedom-loving conservatives together to discuss current events. Dr Karlyn Borysenko, DeAnna Lorraine and Doni Anthony come together to discuss the growing frustration with Donald Trump and the Republican Party. It feels like there’s no Conservative leader and no one knows what direction we are heading in.
Clay Clark: Why are the effective COVID-19 treatments being banned? – Clay Clark is the host of the Thrivetime Show Podcast and is also putting on the Health and Freedom Conference coming up in Tampa, FL, and Anaheim, CA. He joins this episode of Freedom One-On-One to discuss the truth behind COVID-19, the vaccines and why our government is banning legitimate treatments for this virus.
Dr. Richard Fisher and the China Threat – Today, The Two Mikes had the great good fortune of being able to speak about China with Dr. Richard Fisher, from the International Assessment and Strategy Center. Discussing the threat posed to America by China, Dr. Fisher noted that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime currently is “full itself” because it believes that it is successfully pushing the United States toward the abyss, and without firing a shot.
Republicans are fighting Critical Race Theory in all the wrong ways... – Critical Race Theory is a serious issue that the Conservative Movement needs to confront head on. However, just attacking the concept itself without providing any solutions will never accomplish anything and will only bring more division… which is probably what a lot of the proponents of CRT actually want.
Today, I learned about Donald Moss, M.D. and what will soon be his infamous paper – “On Having Whiteness” that was published by the American Psychoanalytic Association. Here are some choice excerpts from his “academic” treatise. (HT: PJ Media)
“Whiteness is a condition one first acquires and then one has—a malignant, parasitic-like condition to which ‘white’ people have a particular susceptibility. The condition is foundational, generating characteristic ways of being in one’s body, in one’s mind, and in one’s world. Parasitic Whiteness renders its hosts’ appetites voracious, insatiable, and perverse.”
The “deformed appetites” of “Parasitic Whiteness” “particularly target nonwhite peoples. Once established, these appetites are nearly impossible to eliminate.
“I write about ‘Whiteness,’ a condition that generates racism and I explicitly distinguish it from ‘whiteness,’ a marker of racial identity. I write that white people are particularly susceptible to the pathology of ‘Whiteness.”
This extreme racist mentality, disguised as scientific research, is the result of a mindset mired with critical race theory (CRT). At its core, CRT teaches that all whiteness (racial or idealized) is evil and without redemption. The only defense against whiteness, according to CRT, is to enact extreme discriminatory practices (aka anti-racism) in order to balance some cosmic scale that will never (ever) even out in the minds of people infected with the CRT pathogen. For them, racism is ever-present and ongoing and like the Salem witches of old, must be found and extinguished for the greater good. And it is the excuse of greater good that has some people losing their literal minds. A few examples…
A New York City-based psychiatrist told an audience at the Yale School of Medicine in April that she had fantasies of “unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.”
Dr. Aruna Khilanani spewed the race-hating virtual remarks — in which she also said she’d walk away from the shooting “with a bounce in my step” and that white people “make my blood boil” and “are out of their minds and have been for a long time” — at the Ivy League institution’s Child Study Center on April 6.
Please help me to hate white people. Or at least to want to hate them. At least, I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively. I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.
In a May 10, 2017 email to students obtained by Red Alert Politics, Texas A&M President Michael K. Young refused to discipline or fire professor Tommy Curry. Curry called for white genocide, saying in a 2012 podcast “in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die.”
While condemning Curry’s remarks as “disturbing comments about race and violence that stand in stark contrast to Aggie core values,” Young refused to say that they were disqualifying for Curry’s position or worthy of discipline.
When I hear about incidents like these and so many under-reported incidents that are not mentioned in mainstream media, I marvel at how people justify their actions. One excuse is that white people are born oppressors and since America runs on white supremacy, people of color cannot be racist. Ludicrous. Without a doubt, people of color can be racist. Regardless of that fact, I have heard the excuse that minorities cannot be racist innumerable times. I remember hearing it when the NY Times refused to fire Sarah Jeong who wrote this and several tweets like it.
What was the NY Times’ defense? [I paraphrase] Sarah Jeong is minority who fought back against harassment by “imitating the rhetoric of her harrassers.” She’s sorry and we don’t condone it. But we’re not firing her so get over it.
UGH! So much racism. Is there any hope?
When I consider the increasing racist hatred against whites and how people of every color are fighting one another, its tempting to think that America is a racist country. Yet, IT IS NOT and I can prove it with a few statistics on how we love.
If Americans are so racist then why do they (increasingly) date and marry people of a different ethnicity?
17% of American married couples are interracial.
Approximately 11 million individuals in the United States are married to someone belonging to a different race. For instance, 18% of United States citizens who are African Americans tie the knot with someone of another race. This percentage is significantly higher than in 1980 (13%) when only 5% could marry interracially.
When it comes to Black-White marriages, interracial dating facts reveal that it is 2.65 times more likely that the husband is Black and the wife is White.
Indeed, 73% of all Caucasian and African-American marriages work in this manner. However, when it comes to Asian and White relationships, there is a 3.08 higher chance that the husband is White and the wife is Asian. African-American and Asian couples are rare, but there is a 6.15 times higher chance that the husband will be Black and the wife will be Asian when they do tie the knot.
According to race and dating statistics, 18% of Hispanic women are married to non-Hispanic men.
15% of Hispanic men are married to non-Hispanic women. This means that when a Hispanic person decides to tie the knot with someone who belongs to different ethnicity, the distinction between genders is almost nonexistent. When it comes to marriages between Caucasians and Hispanics, there is a 1.17% chance that the husband is White, and the wife is Hispanic.
Almost All Millennials Accept Interracial Dating and Marriage
Compared with older groups, particularly Americans ages 50 or older, Millennials are significantly more likely to be accepting of interracial marriage. While 85% of Millennials say they would be fine with a marriage to someone from any of the groups asked about, that number drops to about three-quarters (73%) among 30-to-49-year-olds, 55% among 50-to-64-year-olds, and just 38% of those ages 65 and older. And unlike among Millennials, among those ages 50 and older there are substantial differences between blacks and whites in acceptance of interracial marriage, with older blacks considerably more accepting of interracial marriage than are whites of the same age.
If Americans are so racist then, why do they accept interracial couples in media without complaint (and ask for more)?
A 2016 report by pregnancy and parenting website BabyCenter and market research company YouGov, found 80 percent of the some 2,000 parents surveyed were pleased to see diverse families in ads. And 72 percent of them said “a brand that shares their values is an important factor in their purchasing decisions.”
A 2018 Statista survey examined the representation of interracial couples in popular American TV shows. 43% of female participants stated that these TV shows need more interracial couples, and in total, 39% of respondents claimed these relationships should be more frequent on TV.
One last word, for now…
If there is a large (and growing) percentage of interracial marriages, interracial adoptions and social acceptance of interracial dating, where is this trend of racist hate coming from? How can Americans (literally) love people of all backgrounds and at the same time, be mired in racial hatred? I blame the lessons taught in critical race theory. It divides people, prohibits community and promotes hatred based on skin color. Cursed is the day it was spawned from Hell. But that’s just my opinion. Who do you blame for the racial divides in America?
