Despite its flaws, the United States is the greatest country the world has ever known. We don’t need fences to keep people in America and there are no flotillas of refugees escaping to Cuba. Its greatness stems from its foundation of freedom and liberty for everyone. But in recent years we’re seeing the convergence of some very dangerous societal trends which threaten America. Intersectionality is encouraging divisiveness. The rule of law is transforming into mob rule. Finally, a growing grievance industry is pitting citizen against citizen.Throughout much of human history, people have organized into tribes.

Two great-great-grandchildren of Standard Oil founder John D. Rockefeller Sr. are pouring millions of dollars into an effort aimed at supporting people on the front lines fighting new oil and gas development. Rebecca Rockefeller Lambert and Peter Gill Case have created the 'Equation Campaign' and pledged a combined $30 million of their personal wealth to the effort. Among the causes they are supporting are protests against the Keystone pipeline, in the Dakotas, and activists fighting the replacement and expansion of the aging 'Line 3' oil pipeline in northern Minnesota. Another $5 million was pledged by other sources so far, with an ultimate goal of raising $100 million.

In 2016 influential political leaders, activists, and media outlets in Los Angeles said they had a simple solution to homelessness: build more housing. Echoing an argument heard across the country, they claimed that rising rents have thrown people onto the streets and that by directly providing free “permanent supportive housing,” cities can reduce the number of people on the streets and save costs on emergency services. In response, 77 percent of Los Angeles voters approved a $1.2 billion bond for the construction of 10,000 units for the city’s homeless.

Democrats Want You Defenseless Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. My head has never been on a pike. It’s difficult these days to be an unabashed fan of the United States Constitution, what with it being under assault by so many who swore to uphold it. Welcome to Joe Biden’s America, and say goodbye to every freedom you held dear. I really wish I were being over the top about this, but I read and stuff. This asterisked occupier administration continually exhibits a disdain for all of the freedom parts of the Constitution. They like the part where they can tax you to death but they hate almost everything else.
Meghan Markle accused

Meghan Markle’s new kids’ book is already getting panned before publication — with online critics accusing it of looking like a rip-off of another work already available in stores. “Before you run out and waste money on the book by Harry’s wife, read ‘The Boy on the Bench’ by Corrinne Averiss and Gabriel Alborozo … The original,” one Twitter user wrote of the apparent likeness. Dozens of others soon complained on Twitter that the Duchess of Sussex’s book, “The Bench,” didn’t only share a similar title to UK author Averiss’ 2018 book — but also similar artwork from Christian Robinson.

Shares of Moderna and other makers of the COVID-19 vaccines plummeted after the US backed a plan to waive intellectual property protections for the life-saving products. Moderna stock fell more than 6 percent Wednesday after the announcement and extended those losses a further 2 percent in premarket trading on Thursday. Pfizer shares were down more than 3 percent in that same period and shares of its vaccine partner BioNTech were down more than 7 percent.(Snip) But pharmaceutical companies and industry representatives oppose the policy move, saying that it won’t immediately boost the global supply of doses, because there are more obstacles
Are Americans Becoming Sovietized? replies

What ultimately ended the nihilist Soviet system? Was it not that Russians finally tired of the Kremlin's lies and hypocrisies that permeated every facet of their falsified lives?Here are 10 symptoms of Sovietism. Ask yourself whether we are headed down this same road to perdition. 1. There was no escape from ideological indoctrination -- anywhere. A job in the bureaucracy or a military assignment hinged not so much on merit, expertise or past achievement. What mattered was loud enthusiasm for the Soviet system. Wokeness is becoming our new Soviet-like state religion. Careerists assert that America was always and still is a systemically racist country, without ever producing proof or a sustained argument.

As Republicans grapple with the future of their party in the post-Trump landscape, one issue appears to be animating GOP officials and voters across the Right: opposing so-called “wokeness.” Pushing back against the perceived cultural overreaches of the Left has become a calling card for candidates from the local level to those eyeing the White House. With the midterm elections more than a year away, many Republicans have not yet honed the precise message they will feature in ads and on the campaign trail when their races get underway in earnest.

Why not have done with it and write a fairy story featuring Meghan’s “truth”?

There was a time not long ago when the word ‘bigot’ would have been defined as follows: A person who determines one’s humanity and value based on the color of their skin, their gender, or other inherent traits, and behaves accordingly. That definition applies perfectly to today’s Democratic Party. One’s skill set, experience, and competence are irrelevant for Democrats, whereas our skin color, genitalia, and sexual preference are paramount. Democrats are the very essence of bigotry, but they disguise their prejudice as wokeness and virtue-signaling. And while it must be

The Texas senate has approved in a 18–13 vote a bill to allow Texans to carry handguns without a license. House Bill 1927 would eliminate the requirement for Texas citizens to acquire a permit to carry handguns if they’re not prohibited by state or federal law from owning a firearm. The measure, already passed by the Texas House last week, now heads to a conference committee for the two chambers to debate amendments and settle differences until the House and Senate versions are identical. The bill will then go to Governor Greg Abbott’s desk for his final signature.

Seasonal influenza, also known as “the flu,” visits America every year, similar to tornados, thunderstorms, heat waves, and snowstorms. As tracked by the CDC, over the past decade symptomatic flu cases ranged from 9 to 45 million cases per year in the US. Hospitalizations varied from 140 to 810 thousand, and deaths from 12 to 61 thousand, depending on the particular year, strain of influenza, and effectiveness of the vaccine. This year, “flu activity is unusually low at this time” according to CDC surveillance. Since late September 2020, they recorded only about 2000 cases, a minute fraction of the tens of millions of cases in past years.

Biden said the incident occurred in his 'fourth or fifth year as vice president', or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named had been retired for 20 years and his mother had passed away,
