Dr. Anthony Fauci escalated his spat with some lawmakers over the nation’s COVID-19 response by claiming they oppose “science.”
Fauci has served as the face of the government’s pandemic response, putting him at odds with lawmakers who remain critical of that response. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has frequently sparred with Fauci over various statements and policies the president’s chief medical adviser has made or endorsed.
Most recently, Paul blasted Fauci for “obfuscating the truth” about the National Institutes of Health funding gain-of-function research after the organization admitted in a letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., that a “limited experiment” was indeed conducted.
Fauci, during an interview with “Face the Nation,” dismissed opposition from such lawmakers as “noise,” saying they’re “really criticizing science.”
“Anybody who’s looking at this carefully realizes that there’s a distinct anti-science flavor to this, so if they get up and criticize science, nobody’s going to know what they’re talking about,” Fauci said. “But if they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci, well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”
Paul took to Twitter Sunday morning to respond to Fauci’s claims, calling it “absolute hubris” for Fauci to declare that he represents science.
“It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul wrote.
Fauci also dismissed a suggestion from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that he should be prosecuted by the attorney general over his comments about the gain-of-function research. Cruz tweeted that “It’s a crime to knowingly lie to Congress, so I asked AG Garland if he’d appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci.”
Fauci laughed at the suggestion, asking, “What happened on January 6th, senator?” He “you’d have to be asleep” not to believe that Republicans are trying to “scapegoat” him.
In a five-tweet Twitter thread issued in response to Fauci’s comment against him on Sunday, Cruz excoriated Fauci as an “unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans.”
Saying that Fauci “lives in a liberal world,” Cruz went on to cite the section of the U.S. Code that both he and Paul allege Fauci violated when he testified before a Senate Committee in May that “the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Cruz also blasted Fauci for attempting to deflect lawmakers’ criticism against him by resorting to “ad hominem insults parroting Democrat talking points,” and concluded by reiterating that the DOJ should prosecute him.
“Science”, my hindquarters.
Not since the Nazis has so much totalitarianism been advanced in the name of “science”.
The funding of research into bat viruses done by the Wuhan Institute, under the funding by the EcoHealth Alliance, lasted for over a decade.
Surprise! Surprise! Both the CDC and the NIH are partners of the Ecohealth Alliance.
Just as we found out during the whole charade known as “Russiagate”, there are Professional Bureaucrats who operate behind the scenes of our Federal Government, imperious and seemingly above the law.
Like a spider’s web of intrigue, they move in the shadows, spending our tax money on projects away from the eye of the public…projects like the Bat Virus Research done by the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the University Center For Animal Experiment.
These projects remain unknown by the general public, until something unforeseen happens, like the “accident” at the Wuhan Institute which released COVID-19 on an unsuspecting world.
Former President Trump tried to clean out this rats’ nest of Professional Bureaucrats, naming them the Washington Swamp.
Unfortunately, he did not succeed and they eventually were able to arrange for a demented old man to be appointed the 46th President of the United States of America.
The entire COVID-19 Catastrophe and Washington’s behind-the-scenes machinations during it, which resulted in a nationwide lockdown and a “radical change” to our American way of life, has been all about controlling average Americans to get them used to having their individual freedom taken away from them.
The revelations of the last several months concerning the Washington Swamp’s involvement and especially that of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s subterfuge concerning the funding of COVID-19 is just the beginning of horrifying things which were done in the darkness by bureaucrats which are about to find themselves illuminated by the light of truth.
Dr. Tony Fauci is an egomaniacal career bureaucrat advancing the cause of totalitarianism and governmental control of Americans’ lives from cradle-to-grave in the name of “science”.
And, since Biden and his Handlers will not fire his…it is time for Americans to simply ignore him.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Sec. Xavier Becerra, a self-described Catholic, might need to revisit his faith’s catechism, Bishop Joseph Strickland suggested on Wednesday.
Fox News asked Strickland, who oversees the diocese of Tyler, Texas, about Becerra’s department revoking waivers for faith-based child welfare groups and altering enforcement provisions for religious liberty.
“More brokenness from so[-]called Catholics,” Strickland told Fox News. He added that “maybe we should send him a Catechism.”
The catechism, which lays out doctrine for the Catholic faith, asserts that religious liberty is a “natural right” that “ought to be acknowledged in the juridical order of society in such a way that it constitutes a civil right.”
It adds that the right has inherent limits, which “must be determined for each social situation by political prudence, according to the requirements of the common good and ratified by the civil authority.”
Last week, HHS announced that it would revoke waivers for faith-based entities, such as foster care organizations that refused to serve same-sex couples. Becerra said at the time that “we treat any violation of civil rights or religious freedoms seriously.” That statement echoed others he made during his confirmation hearing but didn’t resemble his actions, critics have said.
HHS did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. In a press release last week, the department defended its decision to revoke the waivers.
“The waivers are inconsistent with the Department’s critical goal of combating discrimination based on religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity,” it read.
In January, bishops across the country said the order didn’t properly account for religious liberty and furthered “false theories on human sexuality.”
The order, they said, “threatens to infringe the rights of people who recognize the truth of sexual difference or who uphold the institution of lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. This may manifest in mandates that, for example, erode health care conscience rights or needed and time-honored sex-specific spaces and activities.”
The USCCB did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Catholic leaders have generally maintained a distinction between individuals and relationships on this particular issue.
The Catechism reads: “Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered,'” referencing a document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. “They are contrary to the natural law,” it added.
It also states that individuals with “deep-seated homosexual tendencies” “must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.”
However, Catholic teaching also emphasizes the importance of religious freedom, stating: “The right to the exercise of freedom, especially in religious and moral matters, is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of man. But the exercise of freedom does not entail the putative right to say or do anything.”
For several decades now, the Democratic Party, relying on Far Left Ideologues or their own opinion as their “highest authority”, have made a determined effort to eliminate the practice of American Christianity and the Traditional American Morality and Ethics which go with it from Everyday American Life, attempting to regulate Christians’ role in American Society as remaining unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, on Sunday mornings, only.
Or, as Actor and Professional Wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would say, Modern American Liberals want American Christians to
Sit down, shut up, and know your role!
Unfortunately for them, the First Amendment to the Constitution still holds.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Being filled with human beings, America’s churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the Name of the Lord.
For example, the church I attend, helps support a Food Pantry, operated in co-operation with other churches in our area, which feeds 2,000 people per month, counseling them, and getting them the assistance that they need.
Churches today have to walk a fine line.
The spiritual battle raging between the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.
Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.
Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?
Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.
It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.
Why else would they be trying so hard to fight against the influence of Someone Whom they really don’t believe in?
And, a second and final thought occurred to me after hearing that President Biden did not invoke the Name of the God of Abraham in his National Day of Prayer Proclamation..
The Democrats “War on Traditional American Christianity” is why the Democrats lost on November 8, 2016 and why they had to cheat to win in 2020.
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good. – Psalms 14:1
Former President Trump once said,
“Our opponents (the Far Left Democratic Party) want to shut out God from the public square so they can impose their extreme anti-religious and socialist agenda on America.”
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a state of emergency order on Friday in response to the identification of the COVID-19 omicron variant.
The emergency order is intended to increase hospital capacity in New York and will last until at least Jan. 15, when it will be reassessed.
According to a copy of the order, the state will utilize the “surge and flex system,” which allows the Department of Health to limit non-essential and non-urgent hospital procedures in situations where a hospital has less than 10% staffed bed capacity.
The new hospital procedures will take effect Dec. 3.
Gov. Hochul said while the omicron variant hasn’t been detected in New York state, preparations need to be made, adding that the state is seeing “warning signs” of a potential spike in cases.
“We’ve taken extraordinary action to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and combat this pandemic. However, we continue to see warning signs of spikes this upcoming winter, and while the new Omicron variant has yet to be detected in New York State, it’s coming,” Gov. Hochul said in a press release.
“In preparation, I am announcing urgent steps today to expand hospital capacity and help ensure our hospital systems can tackle any challenges posed by the pandemic as we head into the winter months,” Hochul added. “The vaccine remains one of our greatest weapons in fighting the pandemic, and I encourage every New Yorker to get vaccinated, and get the booster if you’re fully vaccinated.”
The move comes after President Biden announced a restriction on travel from South Africa and seven other countries in the region beginning Monday.
The World Health Organization announced Friday that the omicron variant has a “large number of mutations … some of which are concerning.”
The variant has been detected in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi.
Curiouser and curiouser.
Isn’t it quite a coincidence how shortly after Bid Pharma announced that there was a COVID-19 Vaccine available for small children and Biden announced that he was going to push for a mandate to get our children and grandchildren vaccinated, a new variant pops up out of nowhere that is especially harmful to small children?
Do you remember how the Democrat Elite, include Biden, acted when Trump placed overseas Travel Bans in place to protect our country from COVID-19?
They thought that it was the worst form of Xenophobic Fascism that they had ever scene.
And now, Biden is going to put in place Travel Bans for the same reason that Trump did. Or, maybe not.
You see, boys and girls, at this point, that is what all of these mandates and hyperventilating about COVID-19 by the Biden Administration and the Democrat Elite is all about.
It is about controlling the “proletariat”, so that the “Politburo” (i.e. Democrat Elite) can go forward with their plans to install Marxism as the for of government in power in Washington, D.C.
Ever step that the Biden Administration has taken to “slow the spread” of COVID019 has had a political motivation behind it.
And, they have not been very successful.
The success of Governor Ron DeSantis’ health plan of personal Responsibility and freedom in dealing with COVID-19 is driving the Dems batty.
I believe that, at this point, the Dems are coming up with these new variants simply to keep Americans afraid to live their lives as the see fit.
Individual Freedom is contrary to the Marxist Central Government which the Dems are attempting to set up in America.
Americans are waking up to this fact and they are beginning to simply ignore these COVID-19 Mandates because they view them for what they are: a political strategy designed to take away Americans’ freedom.
There is going to be a Political Tsunami involving the Midterm Elections of 2022.
And, the results are going to be “radical change” that every Patriotic American can get behind.
Former President Donald Trump issued a Thanksgiving message on Thursday that hinted at a possible 2024 presidential run.
“A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together,” the former Republican president said in the statement, which was shared on Twitter by his spokeswoman, Liz Harrington.
The statement played off Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” fueling speculation that he is planning a political comeback. Trump told Fox News earlier this month that he will “probably” wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to formally announce whether he will run again in 2024.
“I am certainly thinking about it and we’ll see,” Trump said. “I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms.”
I hope and pray that “The Boss” will run again.
Trump was and IS right…about EVERYTHING.
I have to tell y’all…it was and is always great to watch the 45th President of the United States of America do what he does best: communicate directly with average Americans at his rallies.
Talk about a breath of fresh air,
I will take the brash honesty and “mean Tweets” of Donald J. Trump over the anti-American Policies, ineptitude, and prevarications of Dementia Joe and Heels Up Harris any day of the week.
Trump LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes…the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.
Just like Trump did, with his refusal early in his first Presidential campaign to “act more presidential”, he is still taking his message directly to the American People.
You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour after being elected in 2016 and his use of Twitter to speak directly to the American People.
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the legendary Ronald Wilson Reagan.
While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.
As America witnessed last night, Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
The reason being, President Trump kept his promises.
He does not talk down to us while disparaging our Sovereign Nation, as Sleepy Joe Biden, “Dr.” Jill Biden, and Kamala Harris do..
Trump talks to us in a plain-spoken, clearly understood way, a style which is in stark contrast to a Far Left Democrat party full of professional politicians, whose only interest is the totalitarian retention of power in Washington, D.C., at whatever the cost.
Even now, when he holds one of his rallies, the Former President of the United States of America makes Americans average Americans, feel good about ourselves and the future of our Sovereign Nation
And, gentle readers, to see and hear a Former, and possibly Future American President who genuinely loves this country and her people and who was willing to give up his “lifestyle of the rich and famous” in order to secure a safe and prosperous future for American Citizens is indeed a “radical change” from what this country is experiencing coming out of the Oval Office now.
Simply saying the words to myself brings back a flood of precious memories…memories of Thanksgivings past, as a child, surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins, my sisters, and my Mother and Daddy…smells of sage dressing and oven-roasted turkey…followed by the feeling of having an over-stuffed stomach…all topped by the sounds of laughter and the sight of my aunts and uncles, all members of America’s Greatest Generation, being led in a penny-ante poker game after the Thanksgiving meal by my Daddy, the finest man I have ever known…all of them enjoying each other’s company as they reveled in the wonderful completeness of being a family.
Thanksgiving is a uniquely American Holiday…as unique as the nation which celebrates it.
In 1621, a small group of Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared a feast celebrating the autumn harvest. This is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies.
However, Thanksgiving is much more than this.
Thanksgiving is a day when Americans thank their Creator for the blessings they have received during the year, while holding hope and expectation in their hearts for the blessings yet to come.
The Father of Our Country expressed his thankfulness concerning God and America, when he announced this holiday in 1789:
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”
Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789. – United States President George Washington.
On November 15, 1985, in the first year of his second term, President Ronald Reagan issued the following proclamation…
Although the time and date of the first American thanksgiving observance may be uncertain, there is no question but that this treasured custom derives from our Judeo-Christian heritage. “Unto Three, O God, do we give thanks,” the Psalmist sang, praising God not only for the “wondrous works” of His creation, but for loving guidance and deliverance from dangers.
A band of settlers arriving in Maine in 1607 held a service of thanks for their safe journey, and twelve years later settlers in Virginia set aside a day of thanksgiving for their survival. In 1621 Governor William Bradford created the most famous of all such observances at Plymouth Colony when a bounteous harvest prompted him to proclaim a special day “to render thanksgiving to the Almighty God for all His blessings.” The Spaniards in California and the Dutch in New Amsterdam also held services to give public thanks to God.
In 1777, during our War of Independence, the Continental Congress set aside a day for thanksgiving and praise for our victory at the battle of Saratoga. It was the first time all the colonies took part in such an event on the same day. The following year, upon news that France was coming to our aid, George Washington at Valley Forge prescribed a special day of thanksgiving. Later, as our first President, he responded to a Congressional petition by declaring Thursday, November 26, 1789, the first Thanksgiving Day of the United States of America.
Although there were many state and national thanksgiving days proclaimed in the ensuing years, it was the tireless crusade of one woman, Sarah Josepha Hale, that finally led to the establishment of this beautiful feast as an annual nationwide observance. Her editorials so touched the heart of Abraham Lincoln that in 1863 – even in the midst of the civil War – he enjoined his countrymen to be mindful of their many blessings, cautioning them not to forget “the source from which they come,” that they are “the gracious gifts of the Most High God…” Who ought to be thanked “with one heart and one voice by the whole American People.”
It is in that spirit that I now invite all Americans to take part again in this beautiful tradition with its roots deep in our history and deeper still in our hearts. We manifest our gratitude to God for the many blessings he has showered upon our land and upon its people.
In this season of Thanksgiving we are grateful for our abundant harvests and the productivity of our industries; for the discoveries of our laboratories; for the researches of our scientists and scholars; for the achievements of our artists, musicians, writers, clergy, teachers, physicians, businessmen, engineers, public servants, farmers, mechanics, artisans, and workers of every sort whose honest toil of mind and body in a free land rewards them and their families and enriches our entire Nation.
Let us thank God for our families, friends, and neighbors, and for the joy of this very festival we celebrate in His name. Let every house of worship in the land and every home and every heart be filled with the spirit of gratitude and praise and love on this Thanksgiving Day.
On this Thanksgiving Day 2021, I’m thankful for Americans who are still making a difference. “Average Americans” who still love God and country, and stand on principle with their feet planted on a Solid Rock, and not on shifting sands.
The “Average American”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.
It was this same “Average American”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield.
The same “Average American” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them.
The same “Average American”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.
It is this same “Average American”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy.
The same “Average American”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.
They are the reason we remain, in spite of all that has befallen us as a nation, the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth, despite what those who are presently trying to take away our right as Americans to live and raise our children and grandchildren as we see fit.
They are also the reason that we will “Save America”.
President Biden appeared to read technical instructions from his teleprompter during a Tuesday speech about rising gas prices.
“Because of the actions we’ve taken, things have begun to change,” Biden said.
“End of quote,” Biden added before moving on to his next sentence.
Biden’s aside came during a speech about rising gas prices and the economy, during which he also delivered a Thanksgiving message.
“I want you to know how grateful I am to serve as your president,” he said. “And I promise you that I’ll never stop working to address your family’s needs. And together we’re going to face challenges. We’re going to face them honestly. And that we’ll keep building this economy around hardworking folks who built this country. Happy Thanksgiving, and may God bless you, and may God protect our troops.”
Biden later told the press he had to leave to help out at a soup kitchen and took no questions, prompting one reporter to shout, “When will you answer our questions?”
The Biden administration has repeatedly faced accusations that the president is not in charge of his communications. In September, the White House abruptly cut the feed of Biden’s briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials in Boise, Idaho.
In August, the president’s audio feed was cut as he was about to respond to a reporter’s question on his administration’s military withdrawal deadline from Afghanistan.
The White House also cut Biden’s feed in March when he said he was “happy to take questions” while speaking to Democratic lawmakers at a virtual event.
Biden has dementia and because of that, his handlers must make things as simply as possible in order to attempt to fool the public into thinking that Joe is capable of performing his Presidential Duties.
He is not.
Who is/are the puppet master(s) behind the living breathing dementia-riddled mannequin that is Joe Biden?
A lot of fun has been had at Biden’s expense over the fact that he is losing his war with dementia.
However, in terms of the safety of our country’s citizens and our nation’s continued existence, it is definitely not a laughing matter.
Any American who paid attention during the campaign soon figured out that Biden has some serious mental and physical health issues.
It was one thing to over look his inappropriate behavior during the Obama Presidency when he was just the Vice-President and Obama, Susan Rice, and Valerie Jarret were running the show, anyway.
They are still running the show!
I am certain that it has been difficult for them to cover for Biden’s compromised state.
They knew that he was a doddering old fool even before the Democratic Primaries.
However, when the time came for Biden to start appearing during the Democrat Primaries and then, the Presidential Campaign itself, it was quite obvious that “Lunch Bucket Joe” was shy a potato chip or two.
Now, the President of the United States of America reminds average Americans of their relatives who live in nursing homes whom they have not seen in a while because they cannot bear to witness them deteriorating like Biden is.
HIs wife, “Dr.” Jill Biden and the rest of his Handlers can try as hard as they can to hide his condition.
But, unfortunately, as we have noticed, Joe is declining physically as well as mentally.
Vice-President Kamala Harris and the Democrat Elites know that Joe’s time in the Oval Office is limited.
That is why she has been distancing herself from him by taking trips.
Even she knows that Biden is responsible for the situation in Afghanistan brought about by his pulling our troops out and closing up Bagram before he got the American Civilians and our allies out.
Joe Biden is a perfect example of the “Peter Principle”, a book published decades ago, which posited the theory that people rise in their professional endeavors to their level of incompetence.
The problem with having the Dummy From Delaware sitting in the Oval Office is that he is not paying the price for his incompetence.
In a stunning interview, the acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse assailed President Joe Biden for showing “actual malice” and “defaming my character” in likening him to a white supremacist during the 2020 presidential campaign.
“Mr. President, if I would say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial, and understand the facts before you make a statement,” Rittenhouse, 18, told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“It’s actual malice, defaming my character, for him to say something like that.”
Rittenhouse says he has “really good lawyers” who will be seeking to hold those who are perceived as defaming him accountable. That includes many in the news media.
“It’s quite hysterical how nobody can go back and look at the facts of the case,” a now-upset Rittenhouse, acquitted of various homicide and other charges by a Wisconsin jury late last week, told Carlson.
“‘He crossed state lines.’
“‘He’s a white supremacist.’
“None of that is true, and the lies that they can just get away with spreading is just sickening, and it’s a disgrace to this country.”
Rittenhouse was on trial over the shooting three men, two fatally, at a Black Lives Matter rally in Kenosha in August 2020, but a jury found him not guilty, apparently accepting defense arguments that Rittenhouse, who was carrying a firearm, was defending himself against aggressors.
The teenager told Carlson he supports the right of groups like Black Lives Matter to protest. But he also expressed sorrow about rioters “taking advantage” of and corrupting the purposes of such demonstrations. In the case of his trial, that night in Kenosha arose out of the shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, in the summer of 2020.
“I think it was opportunists taking advantage of the movement,” Rittenhouse said of the riots; the violent unrest inspired him to go out into the streets of Kenosha. “I agree with the BLM movement. I agree everybody has a right to protest and assemble, but I do not agree that people have the right to burn down – I don’t appreciate that people – are burning down American cities to try to spread their message.
“I think there are other ways to go around and do that.”
In the wide-ranging interview, Rittenhouse ripped his first lawyers, including Lin Wood, said he was kept in jail without a shower for weeks, and noted he had to talk his mother into his turning himself in to the authorities.
“She was in shock,” Rittenhouse said. “She was like, she wanted to go into hiding. I said, ‘no, the right thing to do would be to turn myself in. I didn’t do anything wrong.'”
Rittenhouse said he knows the video from the attacks and self-defense arguments likely saved his life and made his case in court.
“I can’t even imagine,” he told Carlson when asked where he would be without the video shown in media and in court.
“I don’t think we would be sitting here right now having this talk, Tucker.”
Rittenhouse said he was sad that the case has been framed by race instead of self-defense. Although the shooting episode was not interracial, Rittenhouse’s most vocal critics have contended that a Black man, armed and acting as he did on that night in Kenosha, would hardly have been acquitted,
“To be honest, Tucker, this case has nothing to do with race,” he said. “It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense.”
In a way, his comments echoed some of the points of social justice warriors.
“It’s amazing to see how much a prosecutor can take advantage of somebody,” he said. “Like, if they did this to me, imagine what they could have done to a person of color who maybe doesn’t have the resources I do or widely publicized like my case.”
Kyle Rittenhouse makes a very good point.
As I have written before…and as history itself shows, the first thing that totalitarians and fascists to, Marxists or otherwise, when they attempt to take over a country, is to take away to ability of the citizens to resist them.
I am not just talking about violent resistance, I am talking about the ability to talk to your governmental representatives face-to-face and your ability to communicate freely, not only with them, but to have your views be heard by others, period.
Did you know that the MSM was attempting to make it seem like Rittenhouse shot Black Americans in cold blood, instead of three White guys in Self-defense?
The Main Stream Media and others who seek to gain political power for themselves, like politicians, political pundits, BLM, and Antifa have attempted to make what happened at the Kenosha Riots into a Racial Incident, even though Rittenhouse and the three men that he shot were of the same race.
This effort began right after the incident occurred.
Biden, who can not put two sentences together coherently, was told by his Handlers to make something racial out of the shooting incident, and to cap it off by referring to Kyle Rittenhouse as a “White Supremacist.
At the time of the shooting , Biden was running for the office of President of the United States, against Donald J.. Trump, whom the Democrats and their MSM Minions has already erroneously painted as a racist.
Like Democrats before them, they thought that the more that they could stoke the fires of racial division, the better their chances to get their puppet, Biden, into office.
And now, they are continuing the false narrative of Kyle Rittenhouse being a White Supremacist in order to distract from Biden’s horrible poll numbers resulting from his devastating failure to do his job as President.
This has resulting in two problems for President Joe Biden, his Handlers, and the Democrat Elite:
Nobody is buying the false narrative about Kyle Rittenhouse and his act of self-defense in Kenosha.
Americans are witnessing Biden’s poor job performance and are having to live with the debilitating effect of it on our economy and our daily lives.
I, for one, would love to see Rittenhouse not only sue Biden, but CNN and MSNBC as well.
They certainly deserve to suffer for what they have said and done.
The man in custody over the mass casualty incident at the #Waukesha, Wis. Christmas parade has posts on his social media in support of BLM causes, George Floyd & black nationalism. He also has a post about how to get away with running people over on the street.
A speeding red SUV plowed through a Christmas parade on Sunday, triggering what reports are calling a mass casualty event. An officer with the Waukesha police told Newsmax that shots had been fired but offered no further details about where or when.
A police news conference revealed people had been killed, but the number or names of those killed was not given. Police said 11 adults and 12 children had been taken to hospitals.
A person of interest is in custody, they said.
According to Heavy, an officer reported that there were as many as 40 wounded or lifeless. Heavy adds that the shots fired came from the car that plowed through the parade, after which patrons began gathering loved ones inside shops.
One man whose son was almost hit by the SUV told Heavy the details.
Michael Hurst, a woodworker from Waukesha whose son was almost hit by the SUV, says, “We just heard screaming up the parade route and looked over, and the red jeep or SUV came barreling through.”
“I pulled my son away. He probably got missed by about a foot. There was a little kid next to us that got hit,” Hurst adds. “I did see dead bodies. The amount of people who are going to be dead from this, it might even be worse than that Las Vegas shooting. They have a whole block of Main Street that is casualties. We did hear that there were active shooters. We don’t know where that came from or if that’s true. The police pulled me into a building and said to stay in there, get in there, there’s active shooters. One officer told us they did stop the active shooters. My son was out in that street grabbing candy.”
A live video feed of the parade from the city of Waukesha showed a red SUV breaking through barriers and speeding into the roadway where the parade was taking place. It’s unclear how many people are injured, and police said they could not immediately provide details.
In one video posted on social media, a red SUV appeared to speed toward marchers from behind, and in a second video police appeared to open fire on the same vehicle as it crashed through street barriers.
Photos and videos of Waukesha circulating on Twitter showed police cars and ambulances crowding a street decked out with Christmas lights in the aftermath of the incident. Bundled up people huddled on sidewalks as dusk fell.
Chief Dan Thompson said the investigation was ongoing, but that a “suspect vehicle” was recovered. Some of the injured were taken by police to hospitals, and others were taken by family members, Thompson said.
“We have a person of interest that we are looking into at this time,” Thompson said. It wasn’t clear if the person was in custody; Thompson deferred questions until a later briefing.
UPDATE: According to Fox News Monday morning, 5 are dead, 40 are injured.
A suspect has been identified and is in custody for the mass casualty incident in Waukesha, Wisconsin when a red Ford Escape plowed into a holiday parade.
According to court documents, 39-year-old Darrell Edward Brooks Jr. has been arrested as a suspect in the incident.
Brooks is a career criminal with multiple priors and was released from jail two days prior to the incident after posting a $1,000 bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies. He has a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm posession, bail jumping, domestic violence and drug related charges.
Whether Brooks’ actions were a retaliation for the outcome of the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial or were simply the actions of a criminal psychopath, they were the actions of someone who was evil incarnate.
It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war not just against the Chinese Coronavirus and the Taliban, but also against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
It inundates the cable news channels and our country’s failing Liberal Newspapers like the New York Times. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.
Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.
From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.
Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Now, more than ever, in the midst of this pandemic, our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday as we finish watching church services on the internet via our Smart TVs.
“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”
Because believe me, Americans…we are in one with three enemies. Two enemies are invisible and one is political.
Pray for those who are out “on the front line” fighting the Chinese Coronavirus every day and caring for those who are sick with it,
An investment firm that counts Hunter Biden among its founders helped a Chinese company purchase one of the world’s most lucrative cobalt mines from an American company, according to a report by The New York Times.
Biden established the firm Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company with two other Americans and some Chinese partners in 2013. The American members controlled 30 percent of the Shanghai-based operation and served on the board.
The company notably completed a deal in 2016 that saw a Congo cobalt and copper mine transfer from American company Freeport-McMoRan to Chinese outfit China Molybdenum for the sum of $2.65 billion.
BHR served as a minority stakeholder to buy out around $1.14 billion of shares from Lundin Mining of Canada, who owned a portion of the Congo mine.
China Molybdenum then bought BHR’s shares of the mine two years later, according to Hong Kong filings. The deal resulted in China Molybdenum owning 80% of the mine, with the remaining portion owned by Congo’s state mining enterprise.
The Times reported that Biden controlled 10 percent of BHR through Skaneateles LLC, a company based in Washington.
Chris Clark, a lawyer for Biden, said he “no longer holds any interest, directly or indirectly, in either BHR or Skaneateles,” and Chinese records indicated Biden was not a member on the board as of April 2020.
But Chinese business records reviewed by Fox News in April 2021 showed that Hunter Biden continued to hold a 10% stake in Chinese private equity firm Bohai Harvest RST Equity Investment Fund Management Co. through Hunter’s company, Skaneateles LLC.
“He has been working to unwind his investment, but I would certainly point you — he’s a private citizen,” Psaki said at that time. “I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update.”
A former board member also claimed that money from the deal – which the owners were not involved in – went to the operating funds and did not distribute among the owners.
“We don’t know Hunter Biden, nor are we aware of his involvement in BHR,” Vincent Zhou, a spokesman for China Molybdenum, said in an email.
Hunter Biden’s business ties remain an item of intense scrutiny for the media, particularly his activity in China. President Biden particularly warned about China’s growing dominance of cobalt as a stumbling block to America’s attempts at shifting from petrol gas to electric cars, as cobalt is a key ingredient in electric car batteries.
Tesla last year pursued a deal to acquire Glencore, a Canadian mining company, in an effort to increase its acquisition of cobalt for its electric car batteries.
One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm.
One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of “remuneration packages” for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,” in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.
The email includes a note that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” A proposed equity split references “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?” with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.
Sources told Fox News that “the big guy” is a reference to the former vice president. The New York Post initially published the emails and other controversial messages that Fox News has also obtained.
Hunter Biden is the point of the spear in a Foreign Policy scandal which is just a small part of what will go down as the most corrupt Presidential Administration in history, making the Warren G. Harding Teapot Dome Scandal pale in comparison.
All of this boggles the mind. Think about it:
The Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Play
The Bidens’ misuse of the power of the Vice-President for personal gain
President Barack Hussein Obama’s $150 billion bribe of the murderous Mullahs of Iran which included hosting Radical Islamists like the late (Thank God) Gen. Quassem Soleimani at the White House
The trading of Muslim Terrorists for the traitorous Bowe Bergdahl
And, of course “Spygate”, the Steele Dossier, and the unmasking of Gen. Flynn
The entire attack on Former President Trump, which lasted his entire first term, the Special Counsel’s “Russian Collusion” investigation, and the hurried Democratic Sham Impeachment were all part of a strategy to cover up the out-of-control corruption, both foreign and domestic, which took place during the Obama Administration with the knowledge and consent of President Barack Hussein Obama, himself.
That would certainly explain the Democrats’ over-the-top reaction to losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their vicious rhetoric and unconstitutional political actions and schemes since.
Former President Trump was right all along.
Just let this soak in, boys and girls…
We have a President of the United States of America who is owned by Communist China!!!
If the dots can be connected in the case of Hunter Biden’s and his father’s history of corruption and the Obama White House and their Foreign Policy, it could be absolutely huge.
If our Sovereign Nation is to survive, this out-of-control political corruption, perpetrated on behalf of a Shadow Government by Deep State Operatives, must be dealt with and those responsible brought to justice.
Guess what, Mr. President? The overwhelming majority of Americans do not care that you are "angry and concerned" over the Rittenhouse Verdict. We stand with Kyle and behind our Constitution. #KyleRittenhouse#KyleIsInnocent
As you probably know by now, Kyle Rittenhouse was fount NOT Guilty on all counts by a jury of his peers, yesterday.
However, the judgment of average Americans was not approved of by Far Left Political Activists and the Democrat Elite, including President Joe Biden.
The Biden White House released the following statement…
While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us. I know that we’re not going to heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I remain steadfast in my commitment to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, under the law.
I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy. The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety.
In our Constitutional Republic, someone accused of a crime has always been innocent until proven guilty under our laws.
However, as the Far Left Democrats continue to attempt to herd Americans toward accepting a Marxist Form of Government, where “useful idiots”, like the Bolsheviks, are led to believe that their opinion matters, the “New Bolsheviks” consider anyone who dares to fight back against their mob-ruled opinions and resulting riots to be guilty…even if they are proven innocent in a Court of Law.
And, because these New Bolsheviks have become the Voter Base of the Far Left Democratic (Socialist) Party, all of the Democrats in Washington, including Biden and his Handlers, have to keep their power secure by remaining in agreement with the Far Left Mob and providing vague approval of their “peaceful protests”, which are actually unlawful riots and what was referred to in times past as “pillaging”.
The reason that Biden had to remain vague in his approval is the fact that if he commits to fully supporting the bullying and riotous actions of BLM and Antifa, there will be an All-Republican Congress elected in 2022.
The fact of the matter is the Far Left Democrats are still a minority in our Sovereign Nation.
That is why they had to literally install Joe Biden as President of the United States of America and why Biden’s Presidential Polling Approval Numbers are sinking faster than the Titanic.
His Handlers are having Biden walking a very thin tightrope in fulfilling his Presidential Duties and offering his opinions on matters of National Importance..
And, given the rapidly deteriorating state of his cognitive abilities, he is going to slip off of that tightrope very soon.
