Why a War Over Ukraine is Unlikely replies
Posted by Magnante 1/28/2022 9:01:37 AM Post Reply
The whole world is waiting nervously for developments in Ukraine. (snip) are those individuals who are comfortably ensconced at the top of power willing to pay any price themselves? (snip) Vladimir Putin is now virtually out of business; he has delegated the routine functions of the head of state to his mediocre subordinates, himself becoming a Kremlin recluse. The real power in the country is not with him, but with those who have money. (snip) there is something that is really scary for those in Russia who have money and power — the West can cut off the payment system SWIFT
Elizabeth Warren may face consequences
for practicing censorship

Elizabeth Warren, a mediocre law professor who parlayed a fake Native American identity into a gig at Harvard and a seat in the United States Senate, thought that, once in government, she’d try her hand at censorship. When Joseph Mercola and Ronnie Cummins wrote a book about COVID with which Warren disagreed, she used her position as a Senator to try to get Amazon to censor the book. Although Chelsea Green Publishing filed suit in November, people are finally becoming aware of the suit. I’m always amazed when someone who ought to know the law doesn’t—or feels entitled to ignore it.
Is the second American Civil War nearing
its conclusion?

The truth is that the Second American Civil War is...almost over. Unlike the first one, the Democrats appear to be a near lock to win. Leftists, through a combination of brilliant projectionist strategy and callously evil use of their political opponents' naïveté, decency, and tolerance, have transformed America's institutions. They have weaponized them and used them against their less aggressive fellow citizens. In the process, they have transformed Americans, their beliefs and expectations, too. Much like the Chinese Communist Party, they own nearly all the levers of influence and power
Schadenfreude overload on virtue-signaling
former mayor of San Luis Obispo who stepped
down 'to fight climate change'

Few things delight me more than watching climate cultists with Big Plans to change the way we live running headlong into reality and discovering that their ideas just don't work. The story of Heidi Harmon, who stepped down from being mayor of San Luis Obispo, California last August to battle climate change, is one to savor. (snip) After multiple attempts to find a working charging station in San Jose, Harmon realized charging the car would take up to seven hours and there was no way she could make the rally. Harmon posted multiple videos about her difficulties in traveling in an all-electric vehicle. She discusses calling the police
Peter Doocy mishandled Biden's phone call replies
Posted by Magnante 1/26/2022 9:19:41 AM Post Reply
The big news on Monday night was that Joe Biden, in response to a perfectly appropriate question from Fox News White House correspondent Steve Doocy, not only refused to answer, but openly and into the mic called Doocy a "stupid son of a b‑‑‑‑." Biden then called Doocy, ostensibly to apologize. In fact, he didn't apologize at all, but Doocy seemed happy to be the nice guy who accepted a private non-apology in exchange for a public insult. (snip) What he should have said was, "Mr. Biden, you very publicly and crudely insulted me. I expect an equally public, explicit apology."
Two women show how completely insane COVID
mania has driven people

One of the points I’ve been making over the years of political writing is that leftism has driven young white women crazy. (snip) A recent video, however, indicates that it’s not just young women whom leftism has driven insane. The video seems to show two older women, upon finding an unmasked young Black man on an elevator, wildly attacking him as they try desperately to get him and his unmasked self off the elevator. (snip) One of the women then hit him and, when he called her on it, she began chanting “Black lives matter,” while her companion continued to insist that he leave the elevator.
Never Forgive or Forget the Enablers of
the Destructive Covid Panic

After nearly two years of America pursuing politically motivated policies to “eradicate” an unstoppable respiratory virus, an increasing number of liberal politicians, commentors and publications have begun to speak out about the failures and human cost of lockdowns and the vaccine/mask mandates. They, along with many on the right, are applauding those who now claim that government Covid policy was a “catastrophic moral crime.” Who are these charlatans that are embarking on a campaign to exonerate themselves from their complicity in a “catastrophic moral crime”? Many of them were at the forefront of spreading ideologically motivated lies
Lockdowns, Masks, and Vaccines Have All
Been Complete Failures, But That’s Not
the Real Problem

It’s becoming ever more apparent that the government health intelligentsia’s efforts to protect Americans from COVID have been a complete failure. That’s why you’ve heard nothing about its success. (snip) There are two ways to look at this argument to end masking, lockdowns, and vaccine requirements. The first is that because all of these infringements upon our liberty failed miserably and are not only entirely ineffective but harmful, we can and should go back to something close to what life looked like before.
There’s disturbing vaccine data coming
from Scotland

The vaccines are proving to be a constantly moving target. (snip) What if it turns out that they’re not even a therapeutic? What if you get more sick, not less sick, from the vaccination? Data out of Scotland suggests that this is a real possibility: Scottish data shows that the COVID-19 age-standardized case rate is highest among the two-dose vaccinated and lowest among unvaccinated! It further shows this trend of negative efficacy for the double-vaccinated persisting for hospitalizations and deaths. Something is very wrong here, and together with other data points, it raises concerning questions about the negative effect of waning antibodies, constant boosting, and the consequences of a leaky vaccine

Last week Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, walked into the British Parliament and made the most consequential statement by a political leader since the fall of the Berlin Wall. This is what Johnson said in part, to the cheers of the assembled parliamentarians: “Next week mandatory [vaccine] certification will end… We will end the compulsory use of Covid status certification in England… From now, the government is no longer asking people to work from home and people should now speak to their employers about arrangements for returning to the office
Did over 100,000 people older than 124
years vote in Wisconsin?

If you’ve been wondering about the extent of voter fraud in America, we may be seeing a staggering amount of either fraud or grotesque negligence in Wisconsin voter rolls. A review of the state’s voter roles showed that 569,277 voters registered on January 1, 1918. Of that number, 20% of these people, all of whom must be at least 124 years old, voted last November. Biden “won” in Wisconsin by 20,682 votes.... For regular American Thinker readers, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Roughly two weeks ago, Jay Valentine wrote about the extent of fraud he and his team have discovered
Who are the Oath Keepers? replies
Posted by Magnante 1/22/2022 9:07:47 AM Post Reply
Hearing the Department of Justice describe them, one would think that the Oath Keepers are the scariest bunch of anti-American knuckleheads to come down the pike since the Ku Klux Klan. (snip) The Oath Keepers was founded in 2009 by Stewart Rhodes. It is a national, but loosely knit organization, created to resist violations of civil liberties by the government. In 2009, that sounded like conspiracy nut thinking. But since the organization’s founding, we’ve been treated to Crossfire Hurricane, two impeachment show trials, COVID shutdowns, election 2020, and our own government targeting parents as domestic terrorists. What sounded crazy in 2009 sounds prescient in 2022.
