There’s Another Racist Election Law in the Making: Texas!

Have you noticed that the far left in the U.S. is so engaged in picking and choosing (and coordinating) the “tool of the day” with which to attack the psyche of everyday Americans? Today, if it’s not “racism” it’s “homophobia” or “xenophobia” or “sexism” or any one of two dozen weapons with which to attack. And it’s not random! Someone’s pulling the strings of those necessary to keep the angst at a fever pitch among us all.

And it’s working!

Of course, matters of race always seem to be the easiest go-to tools for so-called progressives to use against average Americans. After all, nobody wants to be labeled a racist. If that ever happens to you, your life as you’ve known is over.

Oddly enough, though, the hard left through their media hacks and now even with Big Tech, Social Media Giants, and even large corporations have launched a new approach to “keep us down:” Racial Equity. What does that look like?

Racial Equity

We live in the wackiest of times when woke corporate leaders should propagandize for promoting “racial equity.”

They tried it in Georgia, to no avail. The state passed a law to improve a haphazard, disorderly voting process shaped (or unshaped) by pandemic requirements. The heads of two Georgia-based corporations, Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines, scowled. Their finger-wagging lectures to non-woke state leaders were absurd but much publicized.

Major League Baseball wasn’t going to put up with being ignored on a matter unrelated to game length and such. In a door-slamming, cat-kicking snit, MLB announced it was moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta, capital of the offending state, to Denver. Take that, all you Trump fans! And any other states, like Texas, considering a swift return to the disenfranchisement of black people — watch it, you hear?

Watch what? That’s the real question. The Texas legislature’s proposed voting reforms are ‘racist’ solely in the eyes of those who spot racism in throat-clearings and dog toys. That’s to say, in everything.

The Texas Senate’s bill is called the Election Integrity Protection Act of 2021. Its purpose: “to prevent fraud in the electoral process.” The racism imputed to the bill’s supporters (Republicans — you know, probably voted for Trump over Biden) consists in provisions that would allow ‘watchmen’ at polling places, abolish voting in your car, and forbid the mailing-out of unrequested absentee ballots.

Gosh, what impositions! Personally asking for an absentee ballot! Getting out of your car to vote, or else acknowledging physical disability through utilizing the absentee process! Gov. Greg Abbott accuses progressive-tilting Harris County of mailing out, in the last election, unsolicited ballot applications to millions ineligible to vote by mail.

You can see, easily enough, the ideological advantages inherent in such a plan — or in any like plan that might be concocted, de-privileging the responsibilities of citizenship in the same way Southern Democratic bosses, a century and a half ago, resorted to bribing black voters. You don’t want people of color, do you, imagining they’re perpetually getting used by the system: valued less for their intelligence and character than for their sheer reliability.

Race, race, race: isn’t that what this voting reform thing is all about? Up to a point. Beneath the surface is the power-question that informs all political controversies. Somebody or others wants to run the show, to tell others what to do and how to do it.

Efforts to maintain power can generate unappealing arguments and action, but that’s not what goes on in Georgia and Texas, where the seizure of power from those who wield it is the dynamic in play. It’s led to preposterous contentions. Take Beto O’Rourke’s feverish declaration that the Texas Senate’s reform bill is “a voter suppression bill targeting working Texans, communities of color.” The liberal Houston Chronicle calls the legislation “the Texas Voter Harassment Act.”

As Joe Biden would say, c’mon, man. This is absolutely over the top — unconnected to reality. It’s “harassment” to make you request your own absentee ballot? Yes, and what makes ‘working Texans’ and ‘communities of color’ more unlikely than anyone else to study up and vote honestly? Rhetorical bilge is all that foes of the legislation have to throw at it.

Not that bilge isn’t in large supply these days, in corporate headquarters as well as newsrooms. Texas, improbably for a pro-free market state, has its own component of woke capitalists. American Airlines, which headquarters in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, has declared itself “strongly” against the Senate’s legislation.

“Voting is the hallmark of our democracy,” AA insists, “and is the foundation of our great country. We value the democratic process and believe every eligible American should be allowed to exercise their [sic] right to vote, no matter which political party or candidate they [sic] support… At American, we believe we should break down barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our society — not create them.”

Well, duh. Who says otherwise? The Republicans promoting the bill? In what context? What provision of the bill would overthrow Americans’ sense of American ideals?

Therein lies the problem. Critics of voter reform legislation unfailingly fail to show how measures meant to entrench honesty at the polls undermine the democratic process — unless we need a little less honesty around here, recognizing as we should that crooks and cheats deserve representation too.

The Texas legislation is going to pass, given Republican control of the legislature; the governor is going to sign the bill; and then the legal fraternity is going to get busy, filing lawsuits, doubtless in the aggrieved language test-driven during the current debates. Given the present composition of the U.S. Supreme Court, you are entitled to hope the new law will largely survive — that a little more honesty will somehow show its face around American polling places. But the background racket in our present so-called debate over reform isn’t a sign of encouraging things to come.

Summary

This upcoming voter debacle in Texas is sadly just another tool to push us all apart. If it’s not voting in Georgia or Texas, it’s about illegal immigration, shootings, police brutality or COVID-19 lockdown chaos.

I wish I could say the week ahead will be “just another week.” I could say that, but it probably would not be a fair claim to make. Very little in the nation is so easily predictable anymore. But there ARE certainties that we see play out almost perpetually. Sadly, those are each associated with the weaponization of race against us.

I’m sorry to say that there is no end in sight of this vicious cycle of racial animus. Oh, I’m certain we COULD end the vitriol and hatred. But doing so is predicated on if our leaders are sold-out to achieving such. They’re not at that point now. And I’m not sure the majority ever want to get there. Why? Divisiveness is just another tool, another ploy, another way to keep things stirred up.

Reasonable people can reach reasonable solutions on every matter of disagreement, but only if their singlular purpose is to end the furors that perpetually divide us. 

Far too many of those in leadership have sold their souls to their causes and have NO design on reconciliation with those with whom they differ. Want an example? Joe Biden, throughout his campaign for the White House, continually called for unity and the end to divisiveness. Millions listened to his words and heard in them some hope for the end of political strife, constant bickering and incessant attacks on the Constitution. We live in a nation torn by our differences rather than unified by our commonalities. America’s glass was certainly half-empty. And we wanted it half-full. Biden promised he’d do that.

He’s already achieved numerous of his promises, but without even a small attempt to unify the nation. And it appears that path for him as President will continue.

Coaches cannot run out on the field or track or gym floor and win competitions their teams enter. Players do that. All coaches can do is teach and demonstrate to the players of the game how to go about winning.

No coach can be successful by teaching the acceptance of lies and gross misrepresentations. Great coaches demand honesty, hard work, coordination and cooperation among players and coaches, and their unification around common objectives. None of that do I see in this government. Certainly, I see NO real attempt from the White House to accomplish this. From the Biden Administration, all we hear is it’s “Our way or the highway.”

Unless Joe Biden turns off the spicket of non-stop political thuggery and empty promises and angry attacks based on falsehoods, all is lost. Unless and until he truly embraces those commitments he made when taking his oath of office, his time as President will continue to be marred by the fruits of his efforts as POTUS: angst, lawlessness, hatred, division, and resulting lawlessness.

Do you think he wants that as his legacy?

On second thought: forget about that question. Why? He knows who will write the history of his presidency. Therefore he doesn’t need to worry about looking bad to generations to come. After all, it’s pretty easy to print what the boss tells you to print.

Saturday Bullet Points: April 17, 2021

What a week from which to garner just the “highlights” for you! OMG: Cities across the nation are on FIRE!

Within the context of that, what have we put together for our “Saturday Bullet Points?” Don’t worry: there are PLENTY of important items on which you will want to “reflect” while you leisurely address your first…or second…or third cup of coffee. So buckle-up: Let’s get started!

Bullet Points

  • When’s the last time that the island-state of Cuba did NOT have a Castro in political power? A really long time! It appears it is about to happen. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Illegal Immigration has dominated our headlines, once again. Yes, there’s a “crisis” at the Southern border. And, yes, the responsibility for the crisis (which the White House STILL refuses to call it) is totally the responsibility of the Biden Administration. Republicans in large have blasted Democrats for the continual push to benignly allow any and all from Mexico and Central America who want to come to just “come on down!”  Now, however, one famous Republican has joined the Biden-Democrat cause to make ’em all American citizens: George W. Bush! For complete details, click on this link:
  • The purpose for our forefathers structuring the U.S. government with three branches of government — none of which were to have more power than the other — was to keep politics out of at least one of them. And they chose the branch that most need to remain a-political: the Justice branch. But today, Democrats are willing to simply throw out the Constitution, forget about Court precedence, and add four more spots for Supreme Court justices. Why? Purely for partisan purposes: Democrats can’t get all their “stuff” passed! For complete details, click on this link:
  • We have heard little from former Vice President Mike Pence. However, Friday morning early it was reported that he had a pacemaker implanted in his chest. Apparently, heart issues had engulfed him for some time and his heart was consistently beating too slow! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Americans have looked on as the pillars of our nation have, one-at-a-time crumbled before our very eyes. Who feels warm and fuzzy tingles when we consider the rancor incessantly coming from the U.S. Dept. of Justice? What about Congress? Now, it’s even the White House! And the Left is doing their best to destroy the structure of the Supreme Court. We’ve lost heretofore necessities in our nation’s foundation: Education, Healthcare, Religion, and Constitutional rights. They’re being snatched from us a little every day. Now, it appears that Big Business has rolled over to allow the Left to boss them around, too! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Unless you listened to Friday’s edition of “TNN Live,” (M-F 9-11 AM Central) you probably didn’t hear that seven “significant” U.S. universities have filed suit against the CDC for fraud! It appears that 1500 tests that confirmed the patient involved was positive with COVID-19 were not infected. But the travesty of all this does NOT stop there. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been President and Vice President just shy of three months. But the Vice President made a claim the other day that astonished a bunch of “labor experts.” She claimed that the Biden Administration has created more jobs for Americans than any other administration in history. You MUST see this. It’s only a couple of minutes long. Click on this link:
  • Democrats are just getting started in their quest to overthrow the U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law it has provided to us for 260 years. Even though several massive spending bills are already on the table as is H.R. One, an election bill that will federalize elections in total, their next big project is to make Washington D.C. a state. In fact, the House on Friday set that issue to be presented for debate beginning next Tuesday. What’s at stake? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Although “Candidate” Biden consistently promised while campaigning for President that his number one job, if elected, was to return the nation to an environment void of conflict, animus, and political hatred: you know, that “unity” thing. It didn’t take long to find out when he said those things, was doing nothing but campaigning. Based on what we’ve seen, since he took the oath of office, is those far-left proposals will push the nation so far left that the Americans who are considered to be the heart of the nation will be left behind! He seems to have forgotten there’s an election just around the corner. And American voters have LONG memories. Dems are facing an overthrow in 2022! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Have you yet ascertained why the furor at the Southern border hasn’t yet been stopped? Are you still wondering what in the world this President is thinking that would allow these hundreds of thousands of illegals to storm across our border? Isn’t it odd to you that this is happening — with NO pushback from the Biden Administration OR Dr. Fauci — and what the REAL purpose could be? Do you think it just might have something to do with a shrinking Democrat Party membership and a subsequent scramble to find new voters? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Most folks have heard about the recent real estate shopping spree by Patrisse Cullors, self-espoused Marxist co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Buying four luxury homes and spending $4 million in doing so is “no big deal,” at least according to Cullors. In fact, making the purchases were “in direct support of black people.” Huh? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Friday it was confirmed to the U.S. and the world who is REALLY at the top of our government, and it’s NOT President Biden. A controversy over the cap of refugees to be allowed into the country during the fiscal year 2021 had been set by the Trump Administration at 15,000. Biden while campaigning promised on Day-1 to raise it significantly. Mysteriously, Biden signed an EO on Friday restricting refugees to Trump levels. And the Democrat world erupted! Who pushed Biden to “reconsider?” For complete details, click on this link:
  • Across the nation, Friday night saw riots, looting, and gunfire as angry Americans took to the streets in protest of the latest deaths from police shootings. The most serious was in Minnesota’s Brooklynn Center where 100 were arrested. For complete details, click on this link:

Unraveling The Lies and Dropping The Masks

In our age, there is no such thing as “keeping out of politics.” All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia. George Orwell

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever. George Orwell

The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the dedicated Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction, true and false, no longer exists.  Hannah Arendt

“Last week, I received a lovely note from Les Fradkin, world-famous award-winning composer and virtuoso MIDI guitarist and so much more. He said, “I read your NewsWithViews columns all the time. You really need to hear this. Quote it if you like it in your column. My gift to you.”  I loved it because he sang about what is happening to our country and for us to “turn to the truth and turn to the light.” We know who that is…the good Lord God Almighty.  Listen here.

I’ve been blessed with readers like Les Fradkin, a brilliant musician and entertainer, and the many folks who comment on my articles and instill in me the courage and tenacity to continue researching and writing.  Without them, I’d have given it up long ago.

Now to the subject at hand.” Kelleigh Nelson

Fear and Submission

When I enter grocery stores, the malls, the garden center at Home Depot, or any other retailer and see my fellow Tennesseans with face diapers, sometimes two, even when they’re outside in the fresh air, it breaks my heart.  I’m shocked at their docile and obsequious attitude toward a virus that has a 99.75 percent recovery. Their blind obedience to the perfidious media, Dr. Fauci, and the socialist democrats make me cringe. I never thought this many of my fellow Americans would be so compliant.  They have been deluded into accepting control, the restrictions, and the totalitarian destruction of our God-given rights.
Animals will never allow the dumbest of the herd to lead them. Unfortunately, America’s so-called representatives have their heads up their backsides, and the worst of the lot are leading them, all fraudulently and unconstitutionally, all working to destroy our unalienable Bill of Rights.
There is no science-based reason for wearing a mask, but the mask Nazis have no fear of getting in your face should you not don the diaper.  I’ve been accosted several times, but I’ve found the best response is one of two… “I don’t live in China…yet,” or “I’m sorry, I’m not one of the lemmings.”  Then walk away from the nutcase who believes he’s better than you because he wears a mask that will eventually make him sick…as has been exposed time and again.  If the mask Nazi believes the mask actually saves him from getting sick or passing on the virus, ask him why he’s worried about someone without a mask…
Whenever I see a mask-less face, I tell them that it is so wonderful to see their face, and invariably, we end up talking. This has happened several times in the grocery store, and these folks have become like-minded friends. Realize that workers worldwide have lost $3.7 trillion in the alleged pandemic, but billionaires have gained $3.9 trillion.  This is the largest one-year wealth transfer in history, yet no one is talking about the millions of destroyed middle-class small businesses that build our economy.

Worldwide Virology Labs

The Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences is a research institute on virology administered by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), which reports to the State Council of the People’s Republic of China. Located in Wuhan, Hubei, it opened mainland China’s first biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratory.  The institute has strong ties to the Galveston National Laboratory in Galveston, Texas and the Centre International de Recherche en Infectiologie in Lyon, France, and the National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada. The Wuhan institute has been an active research center for the study of coronaviruses.
The Galveston National Laboratory (GNL) is an anchor lab of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Biodefense Laboratory Network, which includes laboratories built by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at 14 universities throughout the U.S. with containment capabilities for biodefense research. Dr. Anthony Fauciis the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).  Dr. Fauci’s NIAID funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology at $7.4 million after it was moved from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
The GNL is one of two labs with Biosafety Level 4 (BSL4) capabilities located on a U.S. university campus. The other is the National Emerging Infectious Disease Laboratory (NEIDL), located at Boston University. The GNL has extensive BSL3 capabilities where work on highly infectious pathogens, including SARS-CoV2, is studied, and medical countermeasures such as antiviral and antibody therapies and vaccines are developed.
Dr. James LeDuc is a former U.S. Centers for Disease Control official who once led the office responsible for preventing viral disease deaths.  He is now the director of the Galveston National Laboratory.
The Galveston lab had worked with China since 2013, when construction began on the Wuhan laboratory. Both the Galveston and Wuhan research facilities operate Biosafety Level 4 laboratories designed to safely contain the most lethal and infectious pathogens for research. Apparently, it didn’t work too well, did it…
Dr. LeDuc stated, “While the Wuhan lab was under construction, the National Lab provided “short-term training experiences” to the staff. The Galveston lab also hosted two Chinese post-doctoral students, who were trained to work safely in BSL-4 laboratories and who returned to China to work in the Wuhan lab.”  He added that those students started a biosafety and biocontainment training program for the Wuhan lab.
As mentioned in the Alex Newman interview with Dr. Lee Merritt, hundreds of Chinese communist virologists worked with vaccine makers, Moderna, Pfizer, Astra Zeneca, and GSK.

GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is not owned by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), as some have claimed.  However, GSK has a 100-year legacy of transforming the health, lives, and futures of people around China.  Since 2010, GSK has achieved 14 Food and Drug Administration registrations in China.
GSK is in a joint venture with Pfizer but does not own them; they completed a 2019 transaction with Pfizer to form a new world-leading consumer healthcare joint venture. The Joint Venture brings together two portfolios of consumer health brands, including GSK’s Sensodyne, Voltaren, Panadol, Pfizer’s Advil, Centrum, and Caltrate.  This venture makes them the global leader in over-the-counter products and gives them number one or two market share positions in all key geographies, including the US and China.
Pfizer is one of the mRNA Covid vaccine manufacturers, and none of them have been approved; they’ve only received emergency authorization.  Recently, the Times of Israel carried an article saying the Pfizer “experimental” vaccine worked well in the trials on 2,260 American adolescents, ages 12-15, and recipients have shown strong antibodies to the virus.  Pfizer is eyeing FDA approval.
GSK and BlackRock, Inc.
BlackRock, Inc. is an American multinational investment management corporation based in New York City and owned by Democrat Larry Fink. Founded in 1988, initially as a risk management and fixed income institutional asset manager, BlackRock is the world’s largest asset manager, with $8.67 trillion in assets under management as of January 2021.
BlackRock Inc. has filed an SC 13G/A form with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) disclosing ownership of 377,284,263 shares of GlaxoSmithKline plc (US: GSK). This represents 7.5 percent ownership of the company. In their previous filing dated 2020-02-05, BlackRock Inc. had reported owning 376,159,235 shares, indicating an increase of 0.30 percent.
Why do I mention BlackRock Inc?  Because in 2018, Soros Fund Management also dramatically boosted its shares in BlackRock Inc., overseeing $6 trillion by nearly 60 percent to 12,983 total shares in the second quarter of 2018.
BlackRock, Inc. also manages the French AXA, a French multinational insurance firm that strongly backs climate control. Axa has called for creating a “net-zero underwriting alliance” that would see member companies from across the insurance sector align their business activities with the 1.5 Celsius warming pathway required under the Paris Agreement, fundamentally reshaping the global economy.
Larry Fink wants member companies from across the insurance sector to align their business activities with the 1.5C warming pathway required under the Paris Agreement. Realize all of this nonsense is about money and taxes…not about global warming or cyclical climate change. Link In late 2019, BlackRock, Inc. named Sebastien Herzog, a senior official at French insurer Axa’s investment management arm, as its operations director for France, Belgium Luxembourg. Spiderwebs of pharma control. Birds of a feather…stick together with climate change lies.

Deadly Vaccines

Veteran investigative reporter Leo Hohmann discovered a 2017 Ted Talk presentation by Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna Inc. He clearly explains in layperson’s language just what the mRNA technology does in vaccines. Zaks states they are “hacking the software of life” by injecting their own genetic code into humans. We are witnessing in this new class of “vaccines” is clearly the wedding together of digital technology born out of the computer age, with Darwinian biology and medicine. It is transhumanism.
According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people who received the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine reported more side effects than those who got the Pfizer/BioNTech shot, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

There’s more…

Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy and Respiratory, spent 32 years in the industry-leading new medicines research and retired from the pharmaceutical giant with “the most senior research position” in his field, spoke with LifeSiteNews. Please read the entire article…
He addressed the “demonstrably false” propaganda from governments in response to Covid-19, including the “lie” of dangerous variants, the totalitarian potential for “vaccine passports,” and the strong possibility we are dealing with a “conspiracy” which could lead to something far beyond the carnage experienced in the wars and massacres of the 20th century. Variants of vaccines are three percent of the original virus and are minuscule compared to the original virus.  They are not a danger once the virus has passed through the citizenry.
Yes, our government is lying to us, just as they lied to us about polio vaccines grown on Simian monkey kidneys that caused soft tissue cancers to recipients and their descendants.
Dr. Yeadon’s main points are stated in this magnificent article by Patrick Delaney.
His main points included:

1. There is “no possibility” current variants of COVID-19 will escape immunity. It is “just a lie.”
2. Yet, governments worldwide are repeating this lie, indicating that we are witnessing not just “convergent opportunism” but a “conspiracy.” Meanwhile, media outlets and Big Tech platforms are committed to the same propaganda and censorship of the truth.
3. Pharmaceutical companies have already begun to develop unneeded “top-up” (“booster”) vaccines for the “variants.” The companies are planning to manufacture billions of vials, in addition to the current experimental COVID-19 “vaccine” campaign.
4. Regulatory agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency have announced that since these “top-up” vaccines will be so similar to the prior injections which were approved for emergency use authorization, drug companies will not be required to “perform any clinical safety studies.”
5. Thus, this virtually means that the design and implementation of repeated and coerced mRNA vaccines “go from the computer screen of a pharmaceutical company into the arms of hundreds of millions of people, [injecting] some superfluous genetic sequence for which there is absolutely no need or justification.”
6. Why are they doing this? Since no benign reason is apparent, the use of vaccine passports along with a “banking reset” could issue totalitarianism unlike the world has ever seen. Recalling the evil of Stalin, Mao, and Hitler, “mass depopulation” remains a logical outcome.
7. The fact that this at least could be true means everyone must “fight like crazy to make sure that system never forms.”
Dr. Yeadon states as I have in previous articles, “The eugenicists have got hold of the levers of power, and this is a really artful way of getting you to line up and receive some unspecified thing that will damage you.” And here’s a list of the very dangers of the criminal past of vaccine makers.

EUA Vaccines Not Mandatory

Ever since the Food and Drug Administration granted “emergency use authorization” (EUA) for two new vaccines in December 2020 (Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna), employers, schools, and other organizations are grappling with whether to require Covid-19 vaccination.
While organizations are certainly free to encourage their employees, students, and other members to be vaccinated, federal law provides that, at least until the vaccine is licensed, individuals must have the option to accept or decline to be vaccinated.
The clinical trials the FDA will rely upon to ultimately decide whether to license these vaccines are still underway. They are designed to last for approximately two years to collect adequate data to establish if these vaccines are safe and effective enough for the FDA to license.
Given the uncertainty about the two vaccines, their EUAs are explicit that each is “an investigational vaccine not licensed for any indication” and require that all “promotional material relating to the Covid-19 Vaccine clearly and conspicuously … state that this product has not been approved or licensed by the FDA, but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA” (emphasis added).
When Dr. Amanda Cohn, the executive secretary of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, was asked if Covid-19 vaccination can be required, she responded that under a EUA, “vaccines are not allowed to be mandatory. So, early in this vaccination phase, individuals will have to have consented, and they won’t be able to be mandatory.” Cohn later affirmed that this prohibition on requiring the vaccines applies to organizations, including hospitals.

Conclusion

Speaking of great entertainers, as in this article’s opening, one of my all-time favorite actors was Alan Rickman.  He said this, “And it’s a human need to be told stories.  The more we’re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we came from, and what might be possible.”
Alan has passed onto glory, but I would urge my readers to rent his magnificent true story movie, “Something the Lord Made,” about the black cardiac pioneer Vivien Thomas (1910–1985) and his complex and volatile partnership with white surgeon Alfred Blalock (1899–1964), the “Blue Baby doctor” who pioneered modern heart surgery.
It is magnificent.  I sent it to my momma’s cousin years ago, whose husband is a retired psychiatrist and their eldest child, a cardiac physician…they loved it.

To Whom Does This D.C. Mess Actually Belong?

No one can rightfully claim that the Biden Administration has its arms around the American populace, and everyone is calmly cozying up to a warm fire together singing campfire songs. It’s anything but that. In fact, it’s doubtful many folks would give such an opportunity a second thought. There’s minimal consensus in our government today. And there’s plenty of animus and disagreement to go around. We haven’t seen this since Tip O’Neill as Democrat House Speaker went toe-to-toe daily with President Ronald Reagan. And back then, political rancor was left on the sidelines at the end of the day. Reagan and O’Neill became close buddies.

There certainly is a vast gulf between the political ideologies on the Hill and the White House. Try as I do, I find it impossible to consider there may be some possible unity on the most significant legislative issues in this Congress. Those things that MUST be discussed and resolved somehow have been left blowing in the wind of partisan hackery. No one wants to give an inch.

What happened to the constant campaign promises from candidate Biden to unite us all, put partisanship behind, ensuring us that he planned to be the president of “All the American people, not just Democrats.”

With the slight cognitive hangups he’s exhibiting, maybe he forgot about those.

Does the “Mess” culprit have the letters “C” and “S” for his initials?

There is a crisis on the border that President Biden did not inherit but instead created. While he far too late tries telling migrants to stay home, some leftists are mad he isn’t doing more for the thousands packing overcrowded, unsuitable facilities. These same Democrats wanted Vice President Kamala Harris to overrule the Senate parliamentarian and include a $15 minimum wage increase in their COVID relief bill. Now they are demanding a kitchen sink of liberal wish-list items that have no chance to pass the 50-50 Senate, insisting Biden relent and agree to abolish the filibuster to pass climate legislation, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, immigration reform, expanded health care and environmentally reimagined infrastructure.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is cheering those frustrated leftists on, telling Rachael Maddow on her show: “We will change America in a big, bold way. We must. It’s an imperative, and failure is not an option.”

One could say Schumer is just keeping the party unified, doling out happy talk about things that, again, can’t happen as the rules currently allow. He is, after all, up for reelection next year and working to fend off a primary challenge from the left-wing of his party. No one has to tell Schumer twice that the progressive left is a threat to his own seat and his position in history as the nation’s first Jewish Senate majority leader. Their energized faction has captured enough critical mass within the Democratic coalition that Biden’s victory in the nominating fight was considered an eleventh-hour surprise.

From student debt to marijuana, progressives now have Schumer on the front lines of policy debates that might have shocked his younger self. The once moderate lawmaker, who entered Congress 40 years ago as a “law and order” Democrat, helped write the 1994 crime bill progressives have demonized Biden for. He also voted against gay marriage in 1996, for the Iraq War in 2003, and for a border wall in 2006. After years of shoring up his reputation as a strong ally of Wall Street, Schumer now spends much of his time talking about wealth inequality and racial justice.

There is a lot Schumer is likely doing right. Yet he is merrily alienating Republicans in a 50-50 Senate where — while he is technically majority leader — Democrats preside over the chamber without truly controlling it. An evenly split chamber does not “change America in a big, bold way.” On most votes, the vice president cannot break a 50-50 tie, so 10 Republicans are required for 60 votes to overcome a filibuster. For now, Schumer is making it harder to find those Republican votes, not easier.

No one knows better than the four-term senator that the entire Biden presidency now revolves around the decisions made by fellow Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who is feeling quite comfortable bashing his own leader for refusing to court Republicans.

“I haven’t seen an effort by any of our leadership to go sit down and work with them,” Manchin said last week. “Make that effort. Make a little more effort with him and Mitch McConnell and make an effort with the leadership. John Thune’s a very good guy. Roy Blunt, I hate to see Roy leaving. These are all good people.”

It was a one-two punch, not only fingering Schumer for failing to reach across the aisle but complimenting Republicans. One Republican he didn’t name is Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. Manchin and Collins are close, he endorsed her in her race against her Democratic opponent, and together they lead the Common Sense Coalition. The bipartisan group counts more than two dozen senators and works directly with the House’s bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus.

Not only has Schumer neglected to mend fences with Collins or attempted to work together on legislation, he recently blamed her for Democrats taking too long to negotiate, and ultimately watering down, a bipartisan compromise for President Obama’s stimulus program in 2009. He also criticized the compromise Republicans, led by Collins, offered to Biden in the COVID-relief negotiations this year.

“We made a huge mistake in 2009 and ’10. Susan Collins was part of that mistake. We cut back on the stimulus dramatically, and we stayed in recession for five years,” Schumer said on CNN. “What was offered by the Republicans was so far away from what’s needed, so far away from what Biden proposed.”

Collins was clearly horrified by Schumer’s outburst. “Why Chuck seems to be going out of his way to alienate the most bipartisan member of the Senate is a mystery to me,” Collins told Politico, adding, “It must just reflect his extraordinary frustration at having wasted $100 million in the state of Maine in an attempt to defeat me. And for me to win by a strong margin.”

In 2009, Collins noted, then Vice President Biden thanked her for her vote on their stimulus plan. “For Sen. Schumer to now say that this was a huge mistake and try to blame me, when he was in leadership and helping with the negotiations and voted the same way, it’s bizarre. It makes no sense,” she said.

Collins has also expressed concern that Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, pushed the president away from compromise with the GOP on the American Rescue Plan and has retweeted posts critical of her. However, Klain has spoken with Collins about such concerns, and White House aides communicate with Collins and her staff several times every week, the Wall Street Journal reported. Schumer has not spoken to Collins since the election.

As the administration tries to sell their American Rescue Plan, they are also entering a period of negotiations with Republicans they hope will produce some, although smaller, bipartisan compromises as they push for a large infrastructure package Republicans aren’t likely to support. One of those initiatives is a Schumer project — introduced with Republican Sen. Todd Young — known as the Endless Frontier Act, which would overhaul the National Sciences Foundation. Young is also a member of the Common Sense Coalition that Manchin and Collins lead — the very first place Schumer would go to pick up GOP votes for his initiative.

Schumer seems far more focused on pleasing leftists than cooperating with Republicans, impressing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez while he disses Collins. Ocasio-Cortez, who would represent Schumer’s most serious threat in any field of left-wing Democrats, has said she hasn’t made up her mind about challenging the incumbent next year, but that she is pleased that the idea of her running has pushed Schumer left. Throughout, the newly leftist 71-year-old leader has kept Sen. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren close as well — they meet with him every Monday night at weekly leadership team meetings that also include Manchin and Sen. Mark Warner, another moderate Democrat.

Schumer is known for his constant contact, phoning Democrats at all hours to keep them united, but as they head toward a rough midterm cycle next year, they will be known only for the bills they get signed into law. With just five seats needed for the GOP to gain control of the House and only one in the Senate, delivering results is the Democrats’ only hope to throw off losses that traditionally plague the party in control of Congress and the White House in the first term of a new president. Schumer, former moderate, has watched a volatile electorate shift control of Congress numerous times throughout his career.

If he had every Democrat on board to nuke the legislative filibuster, wooing Collins — who has indicated she is willing to work with Democrats on raising the minimum wage and other issues — would still be the smartest course. But he does not. Both Manchin and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema have been emphatic about keeping the filibuster in place, and that while they may be willing to make it harder to use, they oppose eliminating it.

Schumer wants progressives to think he’s preparing to end the filibuster. Yet when Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell issued his threat of retribution, saying, “Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like,” he knew Schumer could imagine just that.

Since Schumer won’t “just make that effort” to reach out to Blunt or McConnell or Thune or Collins, as Manchin urges, it seems that a failure is actually an option for the majority leader — as long as he wins his primary.

Summary

Do you think we can ever get to a place with ANY unity on any pieces of legislation? Those things that have always been nothing but a rubber stamp-passed-bill have been met with hatchets and hand grenades on the House and Senate floors. Nothing is getting done — except for spending trillions of dollars, we do not have.

Is there hope for reaching a consensus for the “big bills” in this Congress?

Think about that question: who controls legislation in this Congress? Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Has there ever been a whiff of bipartisanship in anything since January 20th? “No, there has not.” That fact portends little of any significance should we expect before January of 2023 — if then.

In the meantime, breathe deeply and slowly. Keep your eyes on the “target” — whatever the heck you can determine actually is the “target” — and learn how to tread water with everybody in D.C.

I know, we all want members of Congress and the Biden Administration to play nice. Unfortunately for Americans, there is NO dollhouse big enough to hold all those people. And, even if there was, the best we can hope for is Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Mike McCarthy, and Mitch McConnell to use Pee Wee Herman’s method of conflict resolution with his best friend: “I know you are, but what am I?”

The Most Dangerous Tool of the Political Left

There certainly is a plethora of options that might fill that category. Each within that group can be devastating, no doubt. But some are easier to control, simpler to initiate, while several are just the deadliest of the group. I’m certain you can name a few of them:

  1. Political Correctness
  2. De-legitimization
  3. Cancellation
  4. The Racism “card.”

And the list goes on and on. This is certainly not a comprehensive assortment, especially since it seems today’s Left, along with the Mainstream Media, can weaponize a toothpick to use successfully against political foes! But there’s one tool in particular that has rocketed into the lead of all those easily weaponized political tools. We’ll discuss that one here today.

Wokeness

We have witnessed the “Wokeness” expression, and the many tentacles of its thought process creep into the public over these last years. It started as an annoying extension of political correctness, and it metastasized into an ever more present exercise in virtue-signaling after the election of Donald Trump. But now, it has expanded into a central factor in decisions made by everyone from the Democrat-run federal government to an all-in leftist media and compliant private sector.

Being “woke.” The full-strength brand of political correctness takes intolerance and ornamental displays of false virtue to a whole new level.

Wokeness is not like a political system in which a party wants certain things but can only get some of them because of those pesky voters. This is a belief system of a small minority that has metastasized seamlessly to the broader public. With the elite media doing its bidding, no compromise is necessary, so wokeness is increasingly being imposed upon normal, unwitting people who want to judge other people by their character’s actual content but can no longer see their way clearly do so. They exist in a world of “woke” where every single word is evaluated for its potential racist, white supremacist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic implications for those who bear the scarlet “W.”

While many people will buy into the generalized perspective of sensitivity to matters of race, gender, national origin, sexual preference, and all the other demographic factors that seem to inform every decision on the left these days, it is vital to dig well beneath the surface to understand the breadth and depth of full-on wokeness.

How do we do that? From whom can we accept a legal interpretation of the meaning of “Wokeness” and its uses?

Let’s choose someone who lives in the middle of the “Wokeness” target: the Republican Party. Want to narrow that down? How about let’s pick a politician that the New York Times recently used to ramp up the “cancel culture” attention of most Americans and, in its aftermath, opened the door to all-out “Wokeness.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) ripped apart the terrifying cancel culture that seeks to silence anyone who dares to disagree with leftist dogma. Cancel culture animates the vandalism against statues — including those of black volunteer troops for the Union fighting against slavery — along with the abortion of television shows and people’s firing.

Cotton briefly listed many of the recent victims of cancel culture in the wake of the George Floyd riots initiated by Floyd’s horrendous death last Memorial Day: a UCLA professor facing police investigation because he declined to postpone final exams to let students protest, a professor under investigation for reading from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail, a professional soccer player who was fired for his wife’s tweet, and “business executives and editors at newspapers and magazines.”

Tom Cotton did not need to mention former New York Times op-ed editor James Bennet, who resigned amid backlash for publishing Cotton’s op-ed.

Lastly, the senator mentioned Ivanka Trump, whose commencement speech at Wichita State University got canceled.

“What is the logical conclusion? What is the end of the cancel culture? I will tell you what it is. It is right here in this city, Washington, the District of Columbia. That’s where it will end if we don’t put an end to the madness now,” Cotton warned.

“Just up the Mall is the Washington Monument. Are we gonna tear the Washington Monument down? Are we going to rename it the Obelisk of Wokeness?” the senator asked.

“Up the Hill is the Washington National Cathedral where so many times we have gathered as a nation over the years to mourn our great leaders, to pray for God’s protection and deliverance in moments of national strife and struggle,” Cotton continued. “Are we going to rename the Washington National Cathedral the ‘Temple of Reason’ as the Jacobins did to Notre Dame during the French Revolution?”

“And what are we going to call this city? Can’t call it Washington. Can’t call it Columbia,” he said, rejecting “Columbia” because it is a version of Christopher Columbus’s name. “Gotta come up with new names, all around.”
“I will say this, the cancel culture, whether in its Maoist or its multiple forms, ultimately is animated by a single idea, that America, at its core, is fundamentally irredeemable and wicked,” Cotton concluded. “I reject that claim fully, wholeheartedly. America is a great and noble nation, the noblest nation in the history of mankind, that has struggled throughout our history, imperfectly but ceaselessly, to live up to our founding creed that all men are created equal. The single greatest defense against tyranny, against racism, against oppression. [Those are] the stakes of this debate.”

Do you see the tyranny of this relatively young tool being used to transform all of our political and social conversations? Heck, most conservatives today are too petrified to even engage in political conversations with others who they don’t know really well. Think about what happened to millions of Americans in the aftermath of the November election last year.

It was obvious to most that while election outright cheating was on its surface not proven to be fraudulent, the normal process of multiple investigations to get to the bottom of the issue prevented evidence from arriving in front of juries and judges. And, OMG, dare to “allege” outright voter fraud somewhere in public, and the Woke folks in positions of authority immediately loosed the mad dogs of Satan on the perpetrator! Take Mike Lindell as an example: the “My Pillow” guy. Mr. Lindell probably has more My Pillows stacked high in his Minnesota warehouse than Giza cotton plants in Egypt — you know, the exotic cotton used in Lindell’s new bedsheets. (Those are Giza cotton plants in Egypt pictured at the top of this page) Because of Lindell’s rabid support of Donald Trump, all the big chain stores dropped My Pillow products as a big item. In fact, he’s had contracts by the dozens canceled for one reason only: Mike ain’t “Woke!”

Summary

We could keep going all day, giving different examples of “Wokeness,” cancel culture, and dozens of other tools which the left choose to attack all who oppose them. I thought we’d complete today’s story with a list of a few that I’m certain will ring true with you. Each of these has been, and certainly will be again, used to attack folks who are NOT “Woke.” Of course, only those with official membership in the “Cancel Culture” Club for elitists are eligible to engage in battle with any of these (or other) “Weapons of War:”

  • It is now racist for a white person to translate the work of a black person.
  • It is now homophobic for a straight actor to play a gay character.
  • It is now racist for a white therapist to treat a black client – because, of course, the cross-cultural dissonance would make it impossible for any white person to evaluate a person of color free from their own unacknowledged bias.
  • It is now racist to have advanced high school programs – because that means some people would be hurt and demoralized by not being selected for the advanced classes.
  • It is now transphobic for biological females to reject having to compete against trans women, i.e., biological males – even though they must compete in an environment the equivalent of starting every at-bat in baseball with two strikes against them – and have not even a faint hope of achieving a comparable level of physical strength.
  • It is now Islamophobic to criticize any tenets of Islam – no matter how extreme or threatening.
  • It is now science denialism to question the ongoing COVID lockdowns – just shut up and follow orders.
  • It is now science denialism to question any tenets stemming from climate change alarmists – the debate is over, it’s settled science, shut up and listen.
  • It is now bigotry to support the scientific method of adjudicating the scientific hypothesis – in plain language, that means ignoring the science. However, I did think that’s what the woke folk say that conservatives do.
  • It is now racist to promote the ethos of individual dignity over collectivist identity politics – you are no longer an individual but either an oppressor or victim of oppression.
  • It is now racist to criticize a noble person of color, be it a famous athlete or celebrity – because, of course, you couldn’t possibly begin to understand the depth of the struggle if you’re white and therefore should – here we go again – shut up.
  • It is now transphobic to posit that only women menstruate – again with that pesky science.
  • It is now racist to publicly proclaim your support for “wrongthink” black individuals such as Thomas Sowell or Larry Elder – they’re not real black people because they’re not woke.
  • It is now misogynist or misogynistic to note that women greatly outnumber men in universities – oh, those unyielding statistics.
  • It is now sexist to publish scientific research that yields sex differences that are contrary to accepted politically correct orthodoxy – of course. We can’t have men and women being different.
  • It is now racist to point to FBI murder statistics broken down by interracial markers of victim and perpetrator – because we can’t trigger the woke folk with facts showing black on white crime dramatically higher than white on black crime.
  • It is now racist to openly support national borders – because who are we to decide who gets to live among us?
  • It is now racist to seek to curb immigration from countries that espouse deeply hateful and anti-liberty values.
  • It is now racist to request that job offers be based on the merits of an individual’s dossier rather than on the use of immutable traits – i.e., your color and gender.

And we save the best for last, the one which proves once and for all the full-on depravity of the woke belief system:

It is now racist to argue that mathematics yields right and wrong answers – because that might damage our self-esteem, already so devastated from either the guilt of our whiteness or the victimhood of our non-whiteness. Nothing could better exemplify the toxic, fact-free culture of wokeness.

Are you “Woke?” Here’s a question: if your answer to that question was “yes,” how the heck did you determine you ARE “Woke?”

Am I “Woke?” I have no idea! Therein lies the proof that the Left has commanded the tool with which to obliterate all foes, no matter their source: “Wokeness.”

Seriously: Am I “Woke?” It’s killing me to know!

Is Biden Leading Us To Socialism…or Worse?

We’ve heard the warnings from right-wingers for decades that the Left’s policies are taking us straight to Socialism. In fact, the Left has even adopted that thought and defined for us THEIR version of Socialism: “Democratic Socialism.” Obviously, they are fooling us, or at least attempting to do so. There is NOTHING about Socialism that is Democratic — therefore, there is no such thing. Why any American would actually feel positive about making our government bigger, giving those that comprise it the unilateral power to make all decisions, and the unfettered ability to do whatever is wished by those in charge is unfathomable to true conservatives.

Keeping this in mind, it’s safe (and reasonable) to ask this question: What is the best possible counter to Capitalism? What political structure is there that preserves all those elements that have made the U.S. the greatest country on Earth and kept it at the top for 260 years? There certainly must be something we can move to that squelches the vast extremes in the socioeconomics of the American populace while maintaining the basics of our representative republic.

There’s only ONE realistic answer to that: “Socialism.” But will Socialism work in the United States?

Is there a modern example of such a switch to look for answers to our questions? Yep: there is!

The Socialist Example

Back in the 1970s, the nation of Chile embarked on one of the boldest sets of free-market economic reforms in history. The government called in the Chicago Boys, as they were called, led by Milton Friedman and other University of Chicago free-market economists.

They were given a free hand to redesign the Chilean economic system with property rights, a low flat tax, privatization of the Social Security system, and industry deregulation. In 1991, Friedman wrote that Chile now “has all three things: political freedom, human freedom, and economic freedom. Chile will continue to be an interesting experiment to watch to see whether it can keep all three.”

“You mean Chile was a Socialist nation?” Absolutely. But not for long!

For four decades, the experiment worked better than anyone could have imagined. According to a study by economist Axel Kaiser for the Cato Institute: “Between 1975 and 2015 per capita income in Chile quadrupled to $23,000, the highest rate in Latin America. As a result, from the early 1980s to 2014, poverty fell from 45 percent to 8 percent.” Chile became one of the wealthiest nations in South America. And it happened in three decades, an eye blink of history.

The Marxists and intellectual class of Latin America always hated the free-market reforms. They disparaged the Chicago Boys as “fascists.” They spent decades attacking the policies (with the stooges in the American media echoing their protests), even as Chile became the jewel of South America.

The Marxists invented a narrative of “inequality”: “The rich were getting richer, and the poor were getting poorer, and capitalism is evil.”

They infiltrated all of Chile’s cultural institutions: the media, the schools, the universities, the Catholic Church, the arts, the unions, and even the corporate boardrooms. They spread their poisonous creed of collectivism to the populace.

Is any of this sounding familiar to our situation today?

Eventually, the leftists pulled off a political coup. In 2013, the left won the Chilean presidency. The free-market reforms were systematically replaced with “spread the wealth” platitudes. In October 2020, voters approved a rewrite of the constitution, and now property rights and the rule of law are in danger.

Chile is now in economic free fall. The poor are getting crushed. The rich are pulling their money out of the country. They have arrived at “equality:” Nearly everyone is suffering.

The “Biden USA” is Headed the OTHER Way!

Meanwhile, back in America, we have an economic transformation of our own going on. The Biden administration promises to help the middle class by handing out trillions of dollars of free money to citizens and paying people more money for not working than working. We will borrow trillions of dollars and pray that the Chinese continue to buy up our bonds and that our currency holds up.

Many of our constitutional protections and congressional rules of behavior, such as the filibuster, which protects the rights of the minority, may be headed to the shredder. The election laws are getting rewritten to benefit, significantly, the party now in power—the Democrats. The House has passed a bill requiring millions of working-class people to join unions and pay dues. The left is saying, don’t worry, this compulsion is going to help the working class. Sure.

A sock-it-to-the-rich tax increase is coming that will make the productive class and the job creators pay their “fair share” with tax rates of 50 percent, 60 percent, and 70 percent.

Will this story have a happy ending?

The answer to that question might be contained in the frightening example of what happened in Chile. It is what our children and college students should be learning in the classrooms—fat chance. The left runs our schools now, too.

Summary

Let’s get this straight: Chile WAS a Socialist nation. The guys from Chicago came into “town,” instituted capitalism, the nation took over every sector of the economy and converted back to Socialism. Did you notice the monumental changes for the nation of Chile and its people that happened only when the country converted to capitalism? Does any thinking human being NOT see the sheer insanity of Chile abandoning capitalism to go back to the political and economic system that has never worked in any country in World history: Socialism?

There’s only ONE reason why a country would make a change away from capitalism that has made their country thrive after abandoning “collectivism,” otherwise known as Socialism. Doing so can only be to go back to a structure in which an elite group of bureaucrats and wealthy citizens want to regain the total control once held over that nation’s population. Consolidation of national power to rule over EVERY aspect of the citizens’ lives gives a small group of people sole power for every process that directly and indirectly impacts those citizens’ lives daily. NO segment of life remains free. A centralized government will control every part of the social structure.

Such governments don’t do this for money: when this conversion is completed, they control all the money anyway! The goal of this transition is to garner total POWER.

How idiotic for our nation’s populace to sit idly by watching the erosion of all of the elements of capitalism that made this nation what it is today. Everyone reaps the benefits of that — EVERYONE! No doubt there are those who, in each sector of an economy and social structure, will do better than others in some areas. But, overall, it evens out. That’s what gives our representative republic its power to make necessary changes to ensure “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” to everyone.

A Biden Socialist society of any ilk is little more than another boondoggle for the Left. Certainly, it would be good for SOME Americans in some way. But life and its realities always keep score. “What seed you put in the ground will always grow as what it IS, not what the planter wants it to be.”

Keep that in mind as we watch Biden/Pelosi/Schumer and Company partner with the AOC’s in D.C. to try and pull a “Chile” on us all.

They’re going to give it their best shot!

The Carnage of Vaccine

TruthNewsNetwork Contributor Kelleigh Nelson wrote and we published Parts One and Two of this story. With all of the mysteries and unknowns about the efficacy of each of the COVID-19 vaccines, people are tempted to pick a single “expert” to believe about everything to do with COVID-19 and its treatment. Unfortunately, we discover far too often only after we have taken actions based on the “facts” given by these experts that their instructions were nothing more than their opinions. That’s scary. Here we are, just over a year from the U.S. attack by COVID-19 and 500,000 U.S. deaths later struggling to confirm the truths of this pandemic so as to move forward, making decisions based solely on facts. That’s a tall order.

Today, Kelleigh gives us Part Three of her trilogy regarding our pandemic and the way it’s been handled here.

Remember, Kelleigh is an “Opinion Writer.” Her opinions are no less and no more valuable than yours or mine. Fortunately, she is plugged into a network of titans at every level in U.S. Healthcare which you and I cannot access. With her insight and information, we have one more source — which is credible — from which to draw substance to us in making our critical decisions regarding the healthcare of our families and ourselves.

Part Three

The evil of using aborted fetal cell lines involves not just the original murder, but the ongoing commercialization of the child’s body, as well as the ultimate refusal, to bury his desecrated remains. We cannot sit back as the use of aborted human babies in medical research is gradually normalized as an unfortunate part of modern-day medicine. – Statement in a letter by eighty-six Catholic women from 25 countries opposing what they called “abortion-tainted” COVID-19 vaccines.

Destruction of the embryo in the Mother’s womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life and that is nothing but murder.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer (On April 9, 1945, Lutheran pastor and theologian. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was hanged at Flossenburg Concentration Camp, only days before the American liberation of the POW camp. The last words of the brilliant and courageous 39-year-old opponent of Nazism were “This is the end—for me, the beginning of life.”)

Always, vaccinations were given with the greatest enthusiasm to children and the elderly – the most immunologically vulnerable and the easiest to damage with vaccines. – Dr. Vernon Coleman

Many commonly used vaccines, especially those for children, have their origin in cell lines that were originally developed from an aborted baby. If we stand against abortion and the murder of the unborn, the use of babies ’ bodies for science creates a serious moral dilemma for believers. May a believer in our Creator use vaccines derived from aborted materials or should we refuse them?  And should parents refuse to allow these types of vaccinations for their children?  Before submitting ourselves or our children to government vaccines, we need to be aware of what they contain and answer these personal questions.

Vaccines for common childhood ailments are available today, but what is in them may be more damaging than suffering from the ailment.  As a child, I had measles and chickenpox within the same two weeks.  I remember the itching, the Calamine lotion, and baking soda baths.  My poor mother was distraught trying to keep me from scratching and creating scars.  Back then we had parties so that these childhood diseases would spread through all the school children and finally be over.  Now we have vaccines.

Vaccine Contents

It is astonishing to me how many vaccines contain cells from aborted babies. Normal vaccines are grown from a weakened strain of a known virus in culture.  When this is injected into our bodies, it creates antibodies to that disease allowing the body to fight off the infection.

These are not the deadly Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca vaccines promoted by Dr. Fauci, Bill Gates, and our government that install a kind of “operating system” into the human body, hijacking the body’s cells to produce alien proteins via an mRNA “software code” that isn’t even human.

No, these cell lines are taken from electively aborted fetuses and used to manufacture vaccines including MMR lII (measles, mumps, rubella), chickenpox, shingles, Hepatitis A, hepatitis A & B, polio vax, and rabies.

Aborted baby cells were originally used because viruses tend to grow better in cells from humans than from animals. Fetal cells do not divide as many times as other cell types, so they can be used longer.

In addition, because of the ability to maintain these cells at very low temperatures, such as in liquid nitrogen, scientists are able to continue using the same fetal cell lines that were originally isolated in the 1960s.

Therefore, when inoculating children with these vaccines, we are also injecting them with residual aborted fetal DNA and cellular debris, although some deny there is DNA involved. These contaminants put children at risk for autoimmune disease, gene insertion, and mutations. Today’s children are routinely vaccinated by pediatricians performing what they believe to be “preventative” medicine.  By age six, most children have been exposed to more than 100 viral strains.  Commercial markets are created by abortion and are profiting from the fetal distribution chain.

In 2019, President Trump tried to end the use of aborted baby’s bodies for scientific research at the National Institutes of Health who spent about $100 million in 2018 on fetal tissue research.  The use of aborted baby’s tissues in vaccines, pharmaceutical, and medical research obscures the value of all human life.

The human cell lines used to grow these kinds of vaccination strains are derived from the lung tissue of aborted babies.  MRC-5 and WI-38 are two of these cell lines used in normal vaccines.  The German measles vaccine (Meruvax) is sold by Merck and Co., Inc., and uses the WI-38 cell line.  The chickenpox vaccine is called Varivax and uses both MRC-5 and WI-38 cell lines.  This is what we’re putting in our children’s bodies.  Havrix, which guards against scarlet fever, rheumatic fever, hepatitis A infections, and kidney inflammation, is a vaccine offered by SmithKline Beecham and it too uses MRC-5.

Janssen/Johnson and Johnson, one of the largest companies in America catering to baby needs, is also ironically one of the leading corporate sponsors of abortion.  Their Covid-19 vaccine contains aborted baby cells.  Fetal retinal cells are used in the making of the Covid-19 Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans urged its parishioners to avoid the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, calling it “morally compromised” because it was developed and tested using cells derived from aborted baby tissue.  Nevertheless, the Vatican, said in December that it was “morally acceptable” for Roman Catholics to receive any COVID-19 vaccine, even one based on research that originally used cells derived from aborted fetuses.  Where is the rest of the clergy?

I believe we’re facing carnage, not only the murder of nearly 65 million unborn babies since 1973, but also the travesty and evil of selling their little bodies for scientific and medical use and the atrocity of using their cells in vaccines, food, drinks, and cosmetics.  (The Culture of Death – 2012)

Operation Warp Speed

The deaths and adverse reactions from the untested mRNA vaccines, which were rushed to the public via “Operation Warp Speed,” are killing many recipients today. Animal testing was bypassed for the Covid-19 vaccines, but in previous mRNA testing, all the animals died, not from the vaccine, but because the vaccine created hyper immune system changes in the animals’ bodies.  When another virus exploded on the scene, they died of sepsis and cardiac failure.  This is likely a binary poison…part one is the vaccine and part two is a new virus that overwhelms the system.

AstraZeneca has now been banned from 20 countries because of blood clots…Austria, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg, Lithuania, Romania, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, the Netherlands, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Slovenia, Cyprus, and Sweden. Bulgaria and Thailand have also stopped the jab.  While the AstraZeneca vaccine hasn’t been authorized for use in America just yet, White House Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anthony Fauci told lawmakers that there will likely be enough safety and efficacy data to grant the vaccine authorization in April.

Governments and pharma companies have rushed this new experimental RNA technology into use for the first time in history. Prior to the Covidinjection, all attempts to force approval of RNA tech had failed; dangerous and deadly over-reaction of the immune system was the reason.

Fauci and his communist collaborator, Dr. Zhong, are now pushing a new lie. They are saying your children shouldn’t play together until they’re fully vaccinated. I thought the science proved that Covid wasn’t a danger to children? What changed?

Zhong, who is often called “China’s Fauci,” is a pulmonary specialist and a long-time Communist Party member. He’s Fauci’s, communist pal. He and Fauci just appeared together on a Covid panel and both expressed hopes that Covid restrictions and mass vaccinations worldwide would continue well into the future, “It will take about two or three years’ time with global collaboration.” Their plan is to make Covid panic and enslavement the new normal, for a virus that 99.75 percent of the people recover from.

Oh yes, go get your vaccine and once you’ve had both injections, Krispy Kreme will give you a free donut every day when you show your vaccine papers.

Dr. Stanley Plotkin’s Rubella Vaccine

My paternal grandmother and actress Gene Tierney were great friends; they met when both of their husbands were stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas in 1943.  Gene’s first child with legendary designer Oleg Cassini was a daughter named Daria who was born with birth defects. Tierney contracted rubella during a World War II USO appearance at the Hollywood Canteen because a female marine with the illness had sneaked out of quarantine to meet her favorite star.

Years later, the woman saw Gene again and told her she had broken quarantine and asked if she had contracted German measles from her.  Gene turned and walked away.  The disabilities of Gene’s first child Daria, had a devastating lifelong effect on Tierney even though her second daughter with husband, Oleg Cassini, was fine.

Had it been 1965 and Gene had received the rubella vaccine, her baby would have been born without disabilities.  Rubella was devastating, and the vaccine has saved many unborn babies from defects, but there’s a dark side to the injection.

Dr. Stanley Plotkin, pediatrician, and vaccinologist, developed vaccines in the United States during the mid to late twentieth century. He began his research career at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he studied the rubella virus. (Wistar focused solely on biomedical research.)  This 20-minute film on Plotkin and Wistar shows their pioneering use of aborted baby’s cells to make the rubella vaccine.

In pregnant women, the rubella virus caused congenital rubella syndrome in the baby, which led to various malformations and birth defects. Using WI-38 cells, a line of cells that originated from tissues of aborted fetuses, Plotkin successfully created RA27/3, a weakened strain of the rubella virus, which he then used to develop a rubella vaccine. Plotkin’s rubella vaccine has prevented birth defects due to congenital rubella in developing babies and newborns.  Rubella is the “R” in today’s Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine (MMR).

Under oath for a deposition in January of 2018, Dr. Stanley Plotkin admitted to using 76 normally developing aborted babies to develop human cell lines to make vaccines. They harvested pituitary glands, hearts, lungs, kidneys, skin, and spleens to develop vaccines.  I hate that word harvested…it’s not like picking corn or threshing wheat.  Dear Lord what euphemisms are given for pure ungodly evil.  Plotkin ends by stating he is an atheist and does not believe in religious exemptions from vaccines. The seven-minute video eliminates the opening legalities. In another longer video, Plotkin states the aborted babies were three months or older, but that researchers had nothing to do with the abortions.

Dr. Plotkin stated, “From my personal point of view, having seen the suffering of families with Congenital Rubella Syndrome infants, I consider that what was done is 100% moral.”  His research contributed to the development of multiple vaccines, including those for rubella, rabies, rotavirus, polio, and varicella. He also worked on cytomegalovirus (chickenpox and mono) and HIV vaccine development. Both of which have proven elusive and remain unsolved.

A rubella vaccine was first licensed in 1969. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. As of 2009, more than 130 countries included it in their routine vaccinations.

Stanley Plotkin’s conflicts of interest were discussed when he was questioned by US lawyer Aaron Siri during the same deposition. Details of the extent of his industry conflicts of interest were elicited from him by Mr. Siri, e.g., Plotkin’s consultancy work for Sanofi, Merck, Glaxo and Pfizer, and his association with Dynavax Technologies, MyMetics, Inovio, CureVac AG, SynVaccine, GeoVax Labs, GlycoVaxyn AG, AdjuvanceTechnologies, BioNet-Asia, Abcombi Biosciences, and Hookipa Biotech.

Your Papers Please!

Starting April 2nd, 2021, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will require New Yorkers to show “vaccine passports, proof that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine in order to re-enter society.

The illegitimate Biden administration is set to launch a Covid-19 passport Americans must have to engage in commerce and would track Americans who took the vaccine.

Statistics prove that 99.75 percent of Americans recover from this virus; yet the goal is for all Americans to take the untested jab.

How can a “vaccine passport” be legal when our medical records are private and there are HIPAA laws? And forced vaccines? What about the Nuremberg Code?  It addresses experimentation and that is exactly what these vaccines are!

Conclusion

Most states have mandatory vaccinations especially prior to children entering school.  As early as 1905, the US Supreme Court ruled that parents do not have a constitutional right not to vaccinate their children, regardless of the reason, since these laws are justified in order to protect the general public health.

One out of five American children now has “special needs.”  These include learning disabilities, attention-deficit disorders, and behavioral issues, all of which create a whole new market for certain kinds of prescription drugs.

Polio was on its way out in the late 50s yet children and adults in the early 1960s were given the polio vaccine. The vaccine was grown on Simian monkey kidneys which caused SV40 contamination and soft tissue cancers not only in the recipients but also in their descendants.  It is genetically passed.

The government has used Americans as guinea pigs for decades.  Bill Gates and his buddy, Dr. Anthony Fauci are UN Agenda 21 proponents of depopulation wherein the earth accommodates only 500 million people. They have strong monetary ties to the untested mRNA vaccines as well as the vaccines that are grown via aborted baby cells. Gates says we can eliminate population through vaccines.

America vaccinates more than any other country.  The reality is that vaccinations have never, in all of history, diminished the incidence of disease.

Please research states with non-medical exemptions for vaccines and write your legislators to pass bills protecting your medical freedom.

Saturday Bullet Points: April 10, 2021

Here we are again, on another weekend. It’s another weekend culminating a week of frantic activity in our nation. You probably missed some of the important issues. Catch up on those with the following bullet points.

In each one, read the descriptive sentences of what’s in the story. If you want more details, click on the blue arrow at the end. It will take you to a full story to get all the details.

Don’t ever miss any important happenings! Our “Saturday Bullet Points” each week make sure you’re kept informed.

Bullet Points

  • President Biden released what he called “actions” he is proposing that he says do NOT curb the Second Amendment but WILL stop gun violence. While tens of millions of Americans disagree with his statements, many “Woke” Americans agree. Numbered among those are many large company officials, including the CEO of Levi. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Amazon and its principal owner, Jeff Bezos, are known for many things. One of those is NOT their support for many of their rank-and-file workers. Because of Amazon’s massive distribution process necessary to fulfill all their online purchases, blue-collar workers hold most of their jobs. Employees of Amazon in Alabama have been considering unionizing their workforce. But, on Friday, those workers sent a resounding message to those Union executives. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Every American is at least “slightly” familiar with Georgia’s new voter integrity law. It created a nationwide uproar last week, which led to Major League Baseball’s removal of their 2021 All-Star game originally scheduled for Atlanta. It now will be played instead in Denver. Some bad news for Major League Baseball and Democrats who have vehemently attacked the new law: a majority of Americans SUPPORT provisions in the law! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Vice President Kamala Harris faces criticism for not visiting the overwhelmed southern border. Still, she managed to visit a bakery in Chicago on Tuesday and left with a slice of her favorite German chocolate cake. For complete details, click on this link:

  • Johnson and Johnson, the company that makes the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine, is having a problem with their supply of vaccines for the next month. The problem derives from a 15 million dose contamination at a manufacturing facility in Baltimore. For complete details, click on this link:
  • We knew this was coming — and it’s here: President Biden has established a commission to study the United States Supreme Court’s expansion. (In Politispeak, that says, “Democrats are determining which method they can most easily use to pack the SCOTUS with Democrat justices.) But it may NOT be the Supreme Court, but other federal courts as well. For complete details, click on this link:
  • No good news today from the Rap World. Rapper DMX passed away after a drug overdose put him in a coma from which he did not come out. Who was he? What is he famous for? For complete details, click on this link:
  • Here we go again: a New York Christian photographer is challenging a court ruling that demands the photographer agree to photograph LGTBQ weddings. The photographer has refused on the grounds of religious conflicts. For complete details, click on this link:
  • The Queen of England and millions worldwide mourn the loss of the Duke of Edinburgh — the Queen’s husband — who died peacefully early Friday morning after a lengthy illness. Prince Phillip was a fixture in every event in which the Royal Family was part for more than half a century. He was 99 years of age. For complete details, click on this link:
  • The Daily Mail claimed to have authenticated the abandoned laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden in a shocking article published on Thursday. Hunter was also caught on camera using many drugs, paying for sex with prostitutes, and having a shady, toxic, and drug-fueled relationship with his late brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, according to the laptop. For complete details, click on this link:

  • Uh-Oh: President Biden was caught telling a whopper in his Thursday announcement of executive actions he proposes to curb gun violence in the nation. He told the World he wants Congress to cancel the protection gun manufacturers have against being sued. The Government has given gun manufacturers NO such protection! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Who besides me hit the ceiling yesterday after the report from New York that the state was using $2.1 Billion in COVID-19 stimulus money to give to illegals in New York? Are you kidding?!? Members of the House have gone postal and are demanding a full audit of New York’s COVID-19 spending. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Here’s a story from the week too obvious to NOT include in today’s Bullet Points. A Biden nominee to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division was just discovered to be the organizer of a conference that was used “used as a tool by radical anti-government activists to champion cop-killers and free violent criminals.” One cannot make this stuff up! Let me get this straight: President Biden (or whoever handles his policy decisions) feels this woman, Kristen Clarke, is the right person to head such an important department that supposedly seeks to stamp out racial and ethnic discrimination?

President Joe Biden: The Big Lie

I thought the “Big Lie” was the story of cheating in the November 3rd election; that millions of votes reported as Biden votes were actually Trump votes that were changed by Dominion voting machines software?

That’s what we were “told.” Yet, regardless of what the Democrat Media expects us to believe, the book is STILL out on just what happened in that election. Of course, no one dares to voice publicly any doubts about the final 2020 election results. Do so, and your life as you have known it is over. The Cancel Culture gurus swoop in, erase everything you’ve ever accomplished while simultaneously branding your forehead with the scarlet “C”– “Conspiracy Theorist.” That brand prohibits you from ever finding yourself on the receiving end of gifts of “credibility, legitimacy, logic, inclusion, and knowledge.” Of course, those Cancel Culture gurus hold the keys exclusively to doling out such honors. Disagree, and you’re eliminated from public life in America.

If that is the key to acceptance, how does someone like Joe Biden possibly have any role in his life other than “former Senator?” During his public career, he has compiled mounds of lies with his life. And the lies he’s spoken when added to those life-lies build a mountain that almost blots out the sun over Muscat, Oman in July. Instead of “Commander in Chief,” he should bear the title “Liar in Chief.”

Wait a minute: we’re supposed to honor every person elected to serve in office, aren’t we? Yes, we are. We honor them for the office in which they serve. We honor them because we are taught to “honor those placed in authority over us.” That would include Joe Biden. But what we are NOT to do is quietly turn our backs to the lies and gross misrepresentations made to us by this president or any other. A Presidential Oath of Office does not indemnify any person from culpability for any of their wrongs — certainly not telling lies.

Joe Biden may hold the record for spinning the most whoppers of anyone who has ever won the right to inhabit the White House. That’s saying something. There have been quite a few miscreants who lived there before him. Joe may not be in a class of his own when it comes to telling the most lies. But, if not, it certainly doesn’t take long to call the roll in THAT class.

Let’s do this: there are so many lies in his history that were VERY public, each of which was mind-boggling. Before we look at those, we’ll list every lie he’s told since taking the oath of office on January 20, 2021. (sources for stories regarding these lies can be found at the end of this story)

  • Biden White House Claims Elites ‘Celebrating’ Is Exception to Mask Edict
  • Biden Falsely Claims ‘All’ Media Smeared Vaccine Plan as ‘Impossible’
  • Biden Vows to Be Unity President After Smearing GOP Sens. as Nazis

Believe it or not, there are MORE lies that he’s spoken since we gathered these — and the list keeps growing daily.

Don’t forget; there is a long list of whoppers that dwarfs this list of lies that then-Senator Joe Biden told through the years before taking the oath of office. Here are just a few of those. (sources for stories regarding these lies can be found at the end of this story)

  • Joe Biden claimed twice that he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was vice president, even though he was already out of office when the attack took place.
  • Biden said his helicopter was “forced down” near Osama bin Laden’s lair in Afghanistan.
  • Biden said he was a coal miner
  • Biden said he was “shot at” in Iraq
  • Biden said he called Slobodan Milošević a “damn war criminal” to his face
  • Biden said he participated in sit-ins at segregated restaurants and movie theaters
  • Biden said he criticized President George W. Bush during lengthy private meetings in the Oval Office
  • Biden claimed he and Obama ‘solved’ Iran
  • Biden claimed he did not support ‘nation building’ in Afghanistan
  • Biden inaccurately claimed he opposed the war in Iraq
  • Biden now claims to have supported Obama’s 2011 raid that killed bin Laden
  • Biden now claims he never supported moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
  • Biden claims ‘nobody warned me’ about conflict of interest with son Hunter and Ukraine dealings

Summary

Need we go on? We could honestly present to you a list far longer than those above that report more lies told by Joe Biden in his early years as a Senator and through two previous failed attempts to win the Democrat Party nomination for President — which he lost dramatically. But there’s no need to list any more of his fables.

Here’s the bottom line: the incontrovertible fact that now-President Joe Biden has constantly told egregious lies during his political campaign proves that Americans cannot trust him to tell the truth, let alone fulfill any of the promises he’s made to us leading up to our southern border crisis and in the future.

Which story that he tells that can we can believe — or SHOULD we believe? After all, we’re not talking about a “loose talking point” or a “vernacular faux pas.” We’re talking about lies told by the Manager of our government regarding the most important issues in our lives. 

How many lies from a President should be accepted before Americans throw in the towel on Joe, settling for the proven fact that “Joe just doesn’t tell the truth?”

That’s a tough thought to digest. There is little or no doubt our nation sits atop a precipice that the administration for the eight years before Trump’s term in office quietly but steadily pushed the U.S. toward.  Their totalitarian policies were clouded with uncertainty and purposeful lies. Donald Trump pulled back the curtain used by the Obama/Biden Administration to hide those evils. That can no longer be argued! Today, President Biden runs victory laps for what they did to the nation.

Lest we forget: should Donald Trump have won last November and faced this same crisis at our southern border, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) would have already convened the House which would have overwhelmingly passed Articles of Impeachment against Mr. Trump. This time, they’d almost certainly be successful in removing him from office in a Senate trial!

Prediction: The death March that Joe has the nation headed down MUST be stopped. One way or the other, he’s going to be stopped. And he cannot lie his way out of this dilemma. Either Pelosi and Schumer and Vice President Harris will step in and invoke the 25th Amendment. The Biden Cabinet with the Vice President’s nod would remove Joe Biden from office for being “incapable of fulfilling the responsibilities of the presidency.” Maybe instead, Jill Biden will make a call letting everyone know that “Joe has sustained a medical emergency of such magnitude he has decided to step aside for the Vice President to take over the role as President.”

It has never been a case of “can Joe Biden make it as President through eight years or even the balance of THIS term?” It’s been, from the beginning, “how long before he’s removed from office? He certainly cannot make four years.”

This is the Principle Tool of Division Used Against Americans Today: “CRT”

If you are an American who is cautious 24/7 about words you use in public, things you say in conversations with those who may not know you, and are really cautious in speaking to someone who is a minority of any kind, you’re certainly not alone. Let’s face it: society has learned how to effectively weaponize anything for any purpose chosen and to accomplish whatever is desired that almost always involves proving that some person is less worthy or qualified than another. Someone must win every time. That means someone must lose, too.

This process makes one tired and lonely, uncertain of one’s personal status in a family, a group at work, trying to fit into numerous social settings. It almost always is either directly associated with, or at least is affiliated with, matters of race. And there’s a new “weapon of choice” in this social journey: Critical race theory.

Critical race theory, or CRT, has occupied an increasingly prominent place in public discourse since President Trump issued Executive Order 13950, “Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping,” which banned the federal government from using CRT in employee training.

During the general election, then-candidate Joe Biden described CRT as nothing more than teaching people to be cognizant of others’ feelings. One of President Biden’s first acts was to revoke Executive Order 13950 and replace it with Executive Order 13985, “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.”

But what is CRT? Many people think critical race theory is part of the civil rights movement, but this is incorrect. Most Americans of a certain age believe that Martin Luther King Jr.’s hope that his children would be judged “not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” is what society should strive toward, and is the practical definition of not being racist.

CRT, and the many millions of millennials, Gen Z-ers, and current school children who have been steeped in its tenets, rejects colorblindness as both impossible and inequitable. The American Bar Association (ABA) explains that CRT is not a diversity and inclusion “training,” but a “practice” – not a noun, but a verb. The ABA continues:

It critiques how the social construction of race and institutionalized racism perpetuate a racial caste system that relegates people of color to the bottom tiers. CRT also recognizes that race intersects with other identities, including sexuality, gender identity, and others. CRT recognizes that racism is not a bygone relic of the past. Instead, it acknowledges that the legacy of slavery, segregation, and the imposition of second-class citizenship on Black Americans and other people of color continue to permeate the social fabric of this nation.

This official description of CRT from the ABA is worth paying attention to for a few reasons. First, if CRT isn’t merely training, but a practice, that means it isn’t confined to one day or even one aspect of life. It’s something you do over and over again so it becomes ingrained in your way of thinking and seeing the world.

Because it’s “evolving” and “malleable,” you can never say “these are the rules” or “we have a just social system.” You can never rest because this practice and evolution entail constantly searching for new aspects of injustice. Thus, people who ascribe to CRT are fond of phrases such as, “We have not yet reached the mountaintop,” “The arc of history bends toward justice,” and so on.

“A racial caste system that relegates people of color to the bottom tiers” implies that race is used by all white people (and only white people) to oppress all people of color. It doesn’t matter how many black CEOs, doctors, engineers, politicians, or celebrities there are. Nor does it matter that Asian students academically outperform white students. Because whites are the single largest racial group in the country, under CRT they and anything that can be even remotely linked to white culture are considered oppressive to all non-white people.

The more “victim” categories a person falls into, the more oppressed he or she is by whites, particularly straight white men (even if the person never experiences disparate treatment). If you are a disabled black lesbian, you are oppressed because of your multiple and intersecting identities, according to CRT and closely related intersectionality theory.

Finally, the description of “the legacy of slavery, segregation, and the imposition of second-class status on Black Americans and other people of color continue to permeate the social fabric of this nation,” is referring to what we have come to know as “systemic racism.” Because the United States was primarily founded by and populated by whites, and because slavery and Jim Crow were due to whites, every system in the United States is tainted by racism to this day.

Whiteness as a Microaggression

Our economic system, school system, criminal justice system – all of them are fundamentally racist, concludes CRT. The proof offered in support of this proposition is that blacks and Hispanics have worse outcomes than whites, even when no proof of disparate treatment is offered. Nor is the fact that Asians do better across almost all these metrics than whites disprove that the systems are fundamentally racist.

“Whiteness” and “white privilege” are also important concepts in CRT. They’re linked to the concept of “racial caste” discussed above. The taxpayer-funded Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History maintains that “whiteness” is “at the core of understanding race in America” and “the standard by which all other groups are compared.” The Smithsonian continues:

Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America’s history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal. Whiteness (and its accepted normality) also exist as everyday microaggressions toward people of color. Acts of microaggressions include verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults toward nonwhites. Whether intentional or not, these attitudes communicate hostile, derogatory, or harmful messages.

Since white people in America hold most of the political, institutional, and economic power, they receive advantages that nonwhite groups do not. These benefits and advantages, or varying degrees, are known as white privilege. For many white people, this can be hard to hear, understand, or accept – but it is true. If you are white in America, you have benefited from the color of your skin.

CRT’s been gaining influence over the past several decades but has exploded since the George Floyd incident last summer. White supremacy is alleged to be everywhere. You don’t see it? You may not have noticed it because it’s so integral to American society. Therefore, if you’re a white person, you must constantly examine yourself and your society for any clues of your white supremacy. If you’re a person of color, you must reflect on how white supremacy has affected you.

‘Behaviors’ of White People

To give one example, in August 2020 the University of Kentucky held training for student resident advisors (RAs). There was one training for “Black, Indigenous, Person of Color,” which was called the “Healing Space for Staff of Color,” while white RAs were expected to attend the “White Accountability Space.”

RAs who were participating in the “White Accountability Space” were directed to review an attached document entitled “Common racist behaviors and attitudes of white people” prior to the session. The “behaviors and attitudes” in the document included:

  • Believe that they have “earned” what they have, rather than acknowledge the extensive white privilege and unearned advantages they receive; believe that if people of color just worked harder . . .
  • Not notice the daily indignities that people of color experience; deny them and rationalize them away with PLEs (perfectly logical explanations)
  • Accept and feel safer around people of color who have assimilated and are “closer to white”
  • Blame people of color for the barriers and challenges they experience; believe that if they “worked harder” they could “pull themselves up by their bootstraps”
  • Dismiss and minimize frustrations of people of color and categorize the person raising issues as militant, angry, having an attitude, working their agenda, not a team player, playing the “race card” . . .
  • Focus on their “good intent” as whites, rather than on the negative impact of their behavior;
  • Focus on how much progress we have made, rather than on how much more needs to change
  • “Walk on eggshells” and act more distant and formal with people of color
  • Segregate themselves from people of color and rarely develop authentic relationships across race
  • Dismiss the racist experiences of people of color with comments such as: “That happens to me too,” “You’re too sensitive,” “That happened because of ____,” “It has nothing to do with race!”
  • Exaggerate the level of intimacy they have with individual people of color
  • Fear that they will be seen and “found out” as a racist, having racial prejudice
  • Focus on themselves as an individual (I’m not racist; I’m a good white), and refuse to acknowledge the cultural and institutional racism people of color experience daily
  • Look to people of color for direction, education, and coaching on how to act and what not to do
  • Compete with other whites to be “the good white”: the best ally, the one people of color let into their circle, etc.

In short, whites are “damned if they do, and damned if they don’t.”

The University of Kentucky training wasn’t an isolated incident. There was similar training for white male employees of the Sandia National Laboratory, for employees of the Seattle city government, and for teachers in the Buffalo Public Schools, to name but a few. They’re almost certainly taking place in your city government and public school system. They teach Americans to hate their country and each other.

Summary

Isn’t it ridiculous that an entire system was developed specifically to provide a bevy of weapons to use against others? Who does that and why?

There is NO proof of the existence of systemic racism, corporate racism, or institutional racism. Racism exists on its own. It’s, in the context of this story, little more than a tool with which to denigrate others.

Seldom do we hear of instances where “enlightened” Americans from every background put differences aside and simply find ways to get along with others with NO regard for differences. We KNOW that happens far more than the opposite! Yet peace, tranquility, and unity among people with vast differences are hard to weaponize. Therefore, there’s little pursuit of it.

That’s sad. Politicians inevitable while campaigning default to the promises of unity and the setting aside of differences. They all promise to lead us in that direction if elected. Seldom is that unity a result of their efforts.

I remember a time in my young life that, in my world, there was little racial rancor. It existed, but primarily in an environment that sought reconciliation of differences. We’re told that is the plan for our nation politically. But facts seldom bear that out.

No nation can long survive such hatred and divisiveness. The USSR’s Nikita Krushchev, Leonid Brezhnev, and Yuri Andropov are spinning in their graves, unable to believe that after all their efforts to undermine and divide Americans, we’re doing it much more successfully to ourselves. And we’re accomplishing it in a dramatic fashion.
