Parents Canceled by Their Own Children

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 7/19/2021 3:07:37 AM

It happened that, as I was thinking about writing about my husband and me being canceled by our own children six months ago — we have been agonizing about not being able to talk to them or see our grandson for all that time — a thought popped into my mind: blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Weeks ago, while struggling with how to understand what has happened, I picked up a copy of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Then I looked at a book by David Horowitz entitled Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model.

Terrible for this to happen to anyone. However I think they made a grave mistake several times. They apologized. Never ever ever apologize when you're in the right. Especially not to woke leftist idiots. Even your own children. Apologies only empower them and cement their beliefs. Never stop fighting.

How sad. "Progressives" are not; they are utterly regressive in thought, enamored of destruction - of everything proven good. That includes the bonds of family it seems.

My hard left daughter thought I should work on “improving” our relationship recently. I asked “what’s to improve?” I am who I am and have no doubts about it; a Christian conservative. I told her it is not my place to reach out to her, if I had to compromise a single brick of my spiritual house. The Bible clearly states for children to honor their fathers and their mothers. Parents are to do their jobs to raise their children they best they know how. After that, whatever choices the offsprings make is entirely owned by them; not Dad, not Mom. She knows it. BTW; she’s coming to visit me down from the Bay Area. So, obviously, I’m not cancelled.

I pray your encounter goes well #3. My company's mantra "Be Proudly You" seems to only apply if you are liberal. An e-letter from my old church advised us to tone down Facebook posts with political topics, so as not to drive away people we might befriend and share the Gospel with. I later thought - "If they don't like my politics, they REALLY won't like my religion."

#1, Amen! I was appalled when I read that the woman had apologized as well. How can anyone apologize for doing what is right?

A must read article. So sorry for what is happening to your family, Satan loves to destroy God's children. We see what has happened and continues to happen to our "youth " today, now, what can we do to help resolve this issue? First of all, we need to get God back into our Country, we have turned our backs to Him and so He has turned His back to us. If we as a Nation repent and turn from our wicked ways, and call on the Lord, "He will hear from Heaven and heal our Land. " Second, we need to take back our schools from the radical left. Third, we need to take back our Government from those who want to make us a Marxist country. This is only the beginning.

What the kancel-kulture kids fail to realize is what they're unintentionally teaching their own children.

I believe being canceled is every parents fear. It happens, however, to the best of people. Young people go away to college and fall under the influence of professors who delight in shocking their students with their leftist ideology. It gives them such an intense sense of power. They know exactly what they are doing and in some ways are very much like Lucifer in their desire to tempt their students to reject their upbringing and embrace their radical ideology. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, this was Lucifer’s strategy. Thankfully, it did not work. The Bible says to train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. He may stray for a while but I do believe that that foundation will bear fruit. Many parents today believe that sending your child to a well respected university is very important in order to set them up for success. However, that may be the worst decision of their lives. Many if not most universities are indoctrination centers who employ professors who are just waiting to get their hands on your kids. Be very careful where they go. Even the best, well grounded kids are subject to this unrelenting indoctrination. The left wants your children. They are like some evil entity ready and willing to mess your kids up if given the opportunity. Do not give your kids over to these abhorrent evil influencers because they are just waiting to fill their minds with lies. Sadly, this phenomenon is happening in our schools today. By the time the kids get to university, they have already been introduced to leftist ideology. Never stop teaching your children your values. Attend church as a family. Lead by example. Teach them to love their country. Pray for them daily because there are evil forces out there that bombard your kids everyday with the message of the left. Kids have a very difficult time today. It is hard to stand for right when everyone around you is against your belief system even for grown adults. Pour God and truth into your kids at an early age because the way things are going, it is not going to get any better. We must equip them to live in a hostile environment.

FTA: 'The sad truth is that behind the strategy of the left is an admiration of, and devotion to, Lucifer, also known as Satan. Proof of this is in the preface of Alinsky's book, where he praises "the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer."' Remember, that kingdom Lucifer won is called hell.

I like the old saw: "I brought you into this world, I can take you out of it." Or at least tell 'em you are leaving everything to charity when you go if they don't give you the respect you deserve.

Bingo, #11. I think the answer to the Young, Know-it-All Crowd is to inform them that since they think you're too Stupid to know how to vote, or to believe what you've been taught in the Bible, you have decided to move to a place you've always wanted to live (think by the Beach or a Golf Course Community in Florida). Then do it! Don't hang around waiting for the "Kids" to throw you a crumb here and there. Go live your Best Life! Let them know they're always welcome to visit. If they don't come to visit, or don't communicate with you in any way, change your will and DO leave everything to whoever you think deserves it. Maybe it's charity, maybe it's a Relative, maybe you decide to spend it all on vacations and a Boat! Whatever! Let them know that You're sorry they feel the way they do about you and how you raised them, but you have decided due to the way they have treated you, you have decided they don't deserve ANYTHING when you pass on! This Generation is SO SPOILED and Full of Themselves that I'm sure they believe they can treat you like Trash and you will still leave them everything you worked for. Surprise them! Don't do it!

Too many parents are loving, encouraging, successful people but instead of raising their children to be good citizens, they worship them. The media and the culture itself worships youth as if they can teach us something. What? It’s bizarre.

Same here! I truly believe it is a spiritual issue. When my daughter used to talk to me, it was a reminder of her roots and what she has turned away from. It is more comfortable to hang out with people of like mind. Rush once told about so many of his conservative friends who had caved in to their daughters who came home from college liberal, in order to maintain relationship. I think if I left the church and voted democrat, my daughter might speak to me again. I never responded well to my kids telling me what I needed to do to please them when they were young, and I won't now. P.S. Lucifer was the very first community organizer.

#7, tough love and discipline of adult children? If the parents are to blame then so is every parent who sends their kids to college. That is where most of the indoctrination is done and it is enforced by peer pressure, the most powerful influence on children and young adults.

I would not be thrilled if one of my children was accepted into an Ivy League school, even if they got a scholarship. They are bastions of the dark side, pretentious indoctrination camps that have 4 years to brainwash young minds. My son just graduated from a state school. Fortunately he was on the GI Bill because the instruction was worthless, maybe three good classes in four years. The text books, and even the writing assignments, are filled with head-splitting Marxist blather that no one understands. The modern university is like the emperor's new set of clothes, but no one wants to say it. The fact is, the whole university system is corrupt and being heavily influenced by the deep state. Many universities are getting research grants from the Communist Chinese, including professors. These universities have massive endowments, like Notre Dame, who has an endowment nearing 12 Billon but still keeps jacking up the tuition for their Catholic-University-brand of Marxist indoctrination. (Remember, ND gave O'Bambi and honorary degree). And the president of ND, the good Reverend Jenkins, is paid 1 million dollars a year. Why the hell does a Catholic priest need to paid that kind of money? And he is not the only president priest being well fed at the trough of a Catholic school. Plus, Big Ed gets tons of federal money. I think what helped my children the most was explaining to them that they have an opponent. No one wants to talk about the Devil anymore, including the churches. If someone doesn't understand that they have an enemy, they can be easily defeated. Children can sense truth. Explain to them that Marxism/liberalism might sound good, but it is a lie, a deception. Teach them the tactics of the dark side. You can start by showing them how Sal Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer. Wretched Sal was a believer.

All you folks who've been canceled by your kids...don't forget to change your Wills. If I had kids who canceled me, I'd leave everything to local animal shelters or similar. I don't think I'd tell them about it...let them find out the hard way so I could look down and enjoy the slack-jawed look on their faces when they found out that the inheritence with which they were hoping to pay off their student loans is going to the care and feeding of creatures in actual need.

We are fast becoming the dystopian (living hell) country of George Orwell's "1984." Orwell was trying to warn us about the evil of totalitarian states, but the Progressives have used it as a "How to" manual for changing this country into a totalitarian state. In "1984" thoughts and words are criminalized (hate speech), vocabulary is restricted to "newspeak" (politically correct) and history is constantly eliminated or changed (cancel culture, 1619 project) at the Ministry of Truth (propaganda, DOE), and every communication is monitored. Sound familiar?

This is so sad to read, but I know that it's happening more and more. It is so distressing that politicians, activists, academics and social media encourage radicalization, division, disrespect and confrontation and to show any respect or acceptance of those we disagree with is considered cowardice and weakness. We have three sons and daughters-in-law and we cover the political spectrum; our oldest son being the most conservative and our middle daughter-in-law being the most progressive. The rest of us fall somewhere in between. We only discuss politics nominally and basically agree to disagree on certain subjects. They all know that we are conservative Christians. The key is to show unconditional love and respect for each other. Our most progressive daughter-in-law is a wonderful wife and mother and, to be honest, our most conservative son can be a jerk sometimes, lol. All three of our daughters-in-law come from dysfunctional families so I think they appreciate the stability that we provide them and our grandchildren. I am so thankful that we have been able to stay connected and be accepting of each other. I pray for the families that are divided because of politics.

A friend retired from a 200 employee company he founded. He is well healed and was able to send his daughter to an east coast school for women's studies. At his son's wedding she called her father out loud a sexist, rascist, misogynist (whatever) and....a white supremacist. Her father turned the company over to a CEO that happens to be black and a VP of procurement that happens to be female. Overall the company is above percentages of minorities to population. The positive in this story is he knows who not to leave theur estate to.

The January 6th "uprising" (a/k/a a relatively small number of people entering the capitol, many of them hardly representative of conservatives as a people -- how many Republicans do you know who would beat a cop with an American flag?) seems to have been used as the biggest excuse to declare all Republicans as being no longer worthy of dealing with as human beings. All over Facebook, the Democrats on my friends list went on a frenzy of un-friending, or at least declaring loudly "If you are X or believe X or voted for Orange Man, you are dead to me!" They are irrational.

I don't have children or grandchildren, so I don't understand parents' compulsion to put up with abuse in the name of being allowed into the lives of both. Having said that, I will say this much: if you don't like me, you don't like my money or my free labor either. Further contact is conditional on a sincere and abject apology and YEARS of contrition. Don't think you can suddenly "make nice" and all is forgiven. You'll likely be on probation for the rest of your life and all your future actions will be measured and evaluated before I decide how to respond. Finally, I intend to enjoy my life with or without you and leave whatever is left to someone who appreciates me.

Some of this is your fault. Did you send them to college? Did you check out the college that taught them all of this crap? Children entering college are just that! Children! They’re one step out of high school and don’t know anything. It’s your responsibility to know what they are learning in college, especially if you are paying for it. You can however, fix this problem. Change your will and disinherit them. Move on with your life. They will teach your grandchildren to hate you too. It’s not worth the hassle.

It's easy to get discouraged when you read stories like this...but... I took all my children to church every Sunday while they were growing up...all but one don't support their local church... BUT... deep in their hearts they were feed the teaching of the Bible... and I know they celebrate Easter and Christmas and all the good memories of stopping for doughnuts after church and going home to our sanctuary to rest up for the weeks challenges... so my words to you who suffer...this too will pass!!

I guess I have a right to comment I am the father of four children two boys and two girls. In all honesty my boys are grounded and good the girls are the trouble. The females are emotional and follow the crowd much more persuaded by peers. I haven't spoken to the youngest, miss know it all, girl in five years. My oldest daughter the second girl is back on track but I don't bend to any of them. I made up my mind to keep my sanity with no regrets remember males are mailable can bend but return girls not so much once the cult holds them they will digress some do figure it out after time but I'm not apologizing to younger adults for anything I only own that to me wife BTW she is not their mother. I divorced 35 years ago this was/is part of their problem not mine. My boys understand clearly but not the girls. Take care but do not fret too much it's a waste of your time. You only get canceled if you choose to be.

To the author and many of you here who are Believers, Scripture has the answer... from Matthew 10: 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:36, ESV) Continue reading the entire chapter for your wisdom and comfort. Personally, even though I chose to move from Monterey on my way now to Naples, Lord willing, I still Face Time the Daughter and her husband and my two Grandblessings, 5 and 2, and mom agreed I could read a book to them each weekend. I am reminded how Jesus treated the “lost sheep,” He continued reaching out in love and forgiveness... And yes, above all, keep them in prayer for Truth to be revealed to them. God loves themselves more than we do... [I have been blessed to study biblical counseling for over the last 10 years, coming alongside hurting ladies, using my masters degree from Masters U in LA CA, and God’s Holy Word, does indeed have the answers! Sadly, the Daughter now so angry became so after marrying a young man from a v liberal methodist church in the Bay Area, and she is the ‘breadwinner,’ all antithetical of what she was taught until AFTER a merit scholarship to college.] MAGA

I have about a dozen children. I know from being there that public school teachers often tell youngsters that whatever they believe is not up to date and, thus, opinions of the oder geration are to be disregarded. this is not a small problem. My response today is to say that children must honor their parents. Who says? God says (end of conversation)

Indoctrination is pervasive. Once the crap gets into young minds it takes dynamite to dislodge it. My suggestion is to NOT send your children to the Horrible Schools in the first place!

Sadly, I have experienced this. Throughout, I was clear that although far from perfect I did the best I knew how as a parent and raised my children to be mentally tough and to strive for excellence. One distanced from me for a couple of years but, aside from keeping a certain distance I remained cheerful during the big chill. I never discussed it or apologized for anything. I stayed warm with my very young grandchildren. I think whatever lesson my child thought I should learn became secondary in their mind to how poorly they were treating their parents as it effects the whole family. In the meantime, my husband and I moved to our dream home two hours away from her. I know it hurt her but parents should live their lives in retirement.

Thank you for your wise words, #31. I was thinking the same thing. And to another poster, the Lord never turns his back on us. He is always there waiting, lovingly, for our return. I have a deacon at my parish who has one son who became a priest and another who has totally washed his hands of the church. Both were raised the same way. I know my friend loves both the same, unconditionally.

Having been on the opposite side (not for political or religious reasons however), give it time and be flexible. Our story. My dh and his mom have always butted heads, very very badly. As his wife of over 20 years I know his stubbornness can be very helpful but put those two stubborn opinionated dare I say arrogant at times people together in the same room and fireworks. She was and still is a great meddler in how we raise our kids, God love her heart. My dh put an end to our and our son's relationship with his parents for almost 10 years due to her overbearing, disrespectful, nasty, and destructive behavior. But both of them mellowed with time and thankfully God is a great softener of hearts. We have a good relationship now. And related to this article, if the shoe were on the other foot and my in laws or my parents were hippy dippy leftist commies, I can see restricting access to my kids. No drag queen story hours, homosexual parades, or other stupid evil nonsense for my brood. I thank God that both sets of parents were Conservative, stayed married, and went to and dragged us kids to church!! We didn't stay in our home churches but we still go and love Jesus.

Years ago I was reading Matthew 10 one morning with Jesus saying that children will rise up against parents (other versions say pursue them with hatred). This is a sign of the last days. That Word has come to pass in my life and my two daughters have cut off all communication even though they were raised to be godly Christians. I was prepared ahead of time for this and I knew nothing I could do or say would change them...only God and prayer. I could blame the government schools, their alcoholic, abusive father they protected, society norms in general, but to be frank, my daughters will have to answer to a higher power for their behavior. No excuses. We do believe the govt. schools are in a full blown brain washing plan to make Marxist/Communists of this and upcoming generations.

The older of my two sons THINKS he is a liberal, or a progressive, or whatever they are calling themselves these days. He buys all the lies. We used to talk politics, and it always ended badly. Last year I thought I had lost him for good. He was wailing about how Mitch McConnell "stole" a Supreme Court seat from Obama, and handed it to that rapist, Brett Kavanaugh. I told him that Merrick Garland had raped my best friend's cousin in 1982, and challenged him to prove me wrong. Okay, nasty, but a really apt description of Kavanaugh's situation. He hung up on me, and it was a lot of days before he would speak to me. We don't talk politics anymore. The fact is, there are a lot of other things to talk about. Things that, in the here and now, are much more important than politics. That said, I do fear for the future my grandchildren will grow up in, but I know their situation won't be helped at all by me alienating their dad.

#9, Rinktum Thank You for your word this morning! We must equip them to live in a hostile environment. It is our prayer that pastors, Churches, faith communities will be doing that....preparing and equipping our kids to withstand a hostile environment to traditional values.

We were cancelled by TK's son in June. He has three boys and they come up every year or so. We missed last summer, of course, and was planning for this year when we got an email asking if we had been vaccinated. TK simply answered, "no". The email we got back was very rude, demanding if our decision was based on politics or religion. He flatly stated that without our being vaccinated they would not be coming up. He also stated his intention to "fully vaccinate" his family. The boys are 15, 13 and the surprise baby is 5! The oldest has Type 1 diabetes! I'm beside myself with worry for our grandsons. We don't' expect to ever see them again. He's a mature man, 51 years old. Funny thing, back in 80's TK's son was the first in the family to find Rush Limbaugh. A high school dropout, he married his teenage sweetheart after 15 years of "dating" as she made her way through college and law school, accumulating $250,000 in debt. Both have abandoned religion. She's with a high-powered firm on Century Boulevard in L.A. When the boys came along they decided to be a "progressive" family and he became the stay-at-home parent. He's whipped. Ours is a spiritual battle. Christ declared he would bring enmity between parents and children. Our greatest weapon in this fight is prayer, lots of prayers for the conversion of souls.

Kids these days are a product of the classroom, online content, peer pressure and constant brainwashing by all things on TV and in the media. They have learned that right is wrong bad is good and that there is no such thing as morality, sin, or disobedience. America is an evil racist oppressive country. It is ok to change your sex as you change your socks. Homosexual activity is glamorized, same-sex marriage is the new normal. God died a long time ago. Jesus Christ was just a guy in a storybook that is all fiction and untrue. Parents who have no God or Christianity in the home. No rules, just do what you want to do when you want to do it. Kids have no respect for parents or grandparents at all. They are an annoyance because they are so stupid and don't know anything. So guess what. We are where we are because God has left the country and the country has left God.

Continuing on Matthew 10, Christians know ( or should know) that Jesus told us this sort of thing would increasingly happen in the end times. He didn't qualify His statement by saying this would happen only to bad parents, or parents who indulged their children and that they would deserve this. No, if you are a follower of Christ, a true disciple, you will be persecuted, hauled into court, slandered, deprived of justice, perhaps even martyred. It is expected, because Jesus was not exempt from it, His disciples and early followers were not exempt from it, and neither are Christians in the United States of America. We are to not be "surprised" when these trials come upon us: ''12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though something strange were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that at the revelation of His glory you may also rejoice and be overjoyed." 1 Peter 4:12-13 Matthew 10:16-22 16 “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be as wary as serpents, and as innocent as doves. 17 But be on guard against people, for they will hand you over to the courts and flog you in their synagogues; 18 and you will even be brought before governors and kings on My account, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given you in that hour. 20 For it is not you who are speaking, but it is the Spirit of your Father who is speaking in you. 21 “Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved."

Rebelling against ones parents and their generation's ways and values did not begin with this generation. It's as old as reproduction, itself. It will continue to happen, to our generation's kids, and to their kids' offspring, and so on. Having opportunistic radicals weaponize it politically seems unusual; but that, too, likely has happened before -- and not just once. (The cynical effort to analyze and exploit human nature for ones own purposes also did not begin with our generation. The idea that human nature began with ones own generation is one of the many conceits obstinately embedded in us.) The only option is to remain rooted but reachable -- not to convert to their rebellion, but not to get overly combative or threatening about it. Be loving and ready to receive rebellious children back to embraces. How to that when the inevitable crisis comes is easier said than done, when on one hand they desperately need some form of help but on the other hand are still passionately refusing to show any maturity or honor. All things are possible for God, though; so pray to God, listen for guidance, and ask for the grace to follow Him faithfully.

Sorry for the second post but some of you wrote such beautiful words and I wanted to thank you for sharing them. Jesus told the parable of the Prodigal Son and it is appropriate here, with our own children. Those who advocate strong negative responses to rebellious sons and daughters may be losing sight of Jesus’ own words.

Well, parents can also cancel their children but first have to think about how they raised their children to be such rats.

I will never apologize for loving God, my husband, my family and my country. I will never wave a rainbow flag and be bullied into agreeing that a woman can become a man or vice versa. I will never hear a man gushing about his "husband" without cringing. I will always love my children but will never bow to their whims.

They may have been good parents but they are not strong parents. Let your kids know that you are guiding them based on knowledge and experience, not what some idiot professor or psychologist tells them. If they want to cancel you, show them the door and close the purse strings. Children need parents more than parents need children. Chances are these heartbroken meek parents are still paying the kids' student loans.

It's highly possible that the pendulum will swing and these people who are cancelling their parents will find that their own kids disagree with their leftist ways. Hope when/if it happens it isn't too late for the once free USA. My son and I cancelled each other - far as I"m concerned you don't say things to your mother that he said to me. I wish him the best but it's out of my control.

Tough love. 25 years ago. 29 year old daughter. Two years of college, she dropped out. I gave her $$ for two divorces before she finally got one. DH and I pretty much raised her son for 4 years. I paid her bills when she fell behind. You know the drill. She only wanted to do 'exercise classes,' $10 here and $10 there, not a real 8-5 job. I finally told her I wasn't going to pay any more of her bills and she said 'then you won't see my son.' I said 'do what you have to do.' We have been estranged for all these years and that grandson is now 29. I have missed them but my life has been so much simpler.

One positive thought on which to end this thread today. Even though it is miserable to live through, all indications are that these could be the "last days", and the rapture could be just around the corner! "But know this, that in the LAST DAYS perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to PARENTS, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good" II Timothy 3:1-3

Boris Johnson has been ordered to self-isolate… again. The isolation order, however, was not issued because Johnson contracted the virus. Rather he has been sent packing to his country house, because he came into proximity of an individual who tested positive for Covid. You may well wonder why the British Prime Minister has been so unceremoniously put away given that he should be safe from the virus. If you did not know, in addition to having overcome the infection, Boris has received his two jabs earlier this year and upon accomplishing the feat urged everyone else to do likewise.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is neither naïve nor stupid. So why did he invite United Nations officials to investigate systemic racism in the United States? It cannot be for the sophomoric reason he stated: “Responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record; rather, they should acknowledge it with the intent to improve.” (snip) We could write the report right now, without even knowing that the UN Human Rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, has already endorsed reparations on July 12 after issuing a UN report on systemic racism in late June which called for wide range of reparation measures.

It happened that, as I was thinking about writing about my husband and me being canceled by our own children six months ago — we have been agonizing about not being able to talk to them or see our grandson for all that time — a thought popped into my mind: blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Weeks ago, while struggling with how to understand what has happened, I picked up a copy of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Then I looked at a book by David Horowitz entitled Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model.

Here are the biased numbers for the recent Economist-YouGov poll that gives Joe Biden a 49% approval rating. (snip) Dem (324) Republican (235) Independent (260) Ninety-nine more Democrats sampled vs. Republicans were included in the results. It is not hard to get the results you want if the polls are assembled in this way, and this is always the method with these polls. A total of 819 from 1,500 participants.

As the forensic audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, winds down, expectations are rising that the defects of the 2020 election will finally be addressed. A recent poll reports that "more than half" of Republicans expect the audit to bounce President Biden out of office. That's not going to happen. And that's not a bad thing. Fixing the 2020 election requires more than Biden has to offer. Real reform requires going after the people who put Biden in office.

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 black comedy, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, the engine for the plot is Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper, a United States Air Force general, who goes completely off his rocker and launches a nuclear weapon at the Soviet Union. We may have our own, real-life General Ripper in the form of General Mark Milley, a product of the Ivy League and now Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. However, unlike General Ripper, who had the Russkies in his sights, General Milley is pretty sure that you are the enemy.

Garland Favorito founded VoterGA, an election integrity organization that has tenaciously followed the November election in Fulton County, including the ballot storage and recounts. His organization now has irrefutable proof that there was election and recount fraud in Fulton County, Georgia. It’s noteworthy that Biden “won” in Georgia by only 11,779 votes. To begin, you can see the press release from VoterGA here. These are the key factual assertions: The team’s analysis revealed that 923 of 1539 mail-in ballot batch files contained votes incorrectly reported in Fulton’s official November 3rd 2020 results.

President Biden argued that a massive influx of government spending bill will help fend off inflation, in a speech on the state of the economy at the White House on Monday. The White House has dubbed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to bring to the floor this week — and the $3.5 trillion budget resolution that Democrats plan to pass in the coming days without Republican support — the “Build Back Better” package. Biden said Monday that the two bills will help prevent, rather than exacerbate, runaway inflation.

Last week, the CEO of Black Rifle Coffee, Evan Hafer, gave a long-form interview to Jason Zengerle for the New York Times Magazine. I don’t know what he expected to achieve by the exercise, but I’m pretty certain that what he accomplished represented a significant deviation from the plan. The piece framed Black Rifle Coffee as a “Starbucks for conservatives” and promoted the piece by saying that the company was trying to distance itself from some of its customers.

As summer reaches peak heat, a recent piece in Time magazine on air conditioning exemplifies the rot pervading academia and threatening the nation.

Yet he teaches “climate-themed writing and environmental justice” at the City University of New York. Wilson describes his recent book
