Swalwell: It’s “Stupid” for Parents to Be in Charge of Their Child’s Education



Rep. Eric Swalwell, FangFang’s really good friend, thinks it’s “stupid” for parents to be in charge of their child’s education. He stupidly compares it to surgeries and trials. Parents are their children’s first teachers, and they are their teachers throughout their youth.

100 Percent Fed Up reports – On Election Day, President Trump ripped into Pennsylvania for reporting that it could “take days to determine the winner” of their races.

Three days later, Pennsylvania is STILL not finished counting all the ballots. Not surprisingly, in the crooked city of Philadelphia, where Black Panthers once stood guard outside of a polling place, the Democrats have 82% of the vote, and Republicans are at 16%. Meanwhile, the majority of the state is red.

Democrats were desperate to save John Fetterman from his dumpster fire campaign, as the Trump-endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz was pulling ahead in the polls. But somehow, on the day after the election, it was announced that despite the polling showing the cognitively challenged post-stroke victim John Fetterman falling behind in the polls, he somehow managed to receive more votes than his Republican opponent Dr. Oz.

Should Pennsylvania residents accept the results of the 2022 election?

After everything we learned following the 2020 election, Americans are increasingly less likely to accept election results that don’t make sense.

Following the 2020 election, mountains of evidence of voter fraud was ignored by the courts, and legitimate reports of voter fraud, as well as hundreds of reported incidents of poll challenger intimidation and threats, were shared with lawmakers who discounted their accounts and refused to call for forensic audits in their states.

Several months later, True the Vote’s Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips revealed evidence of what appeared to be a massive ballot trafficking scheme in several swing states, including Pennsylvania. Their investigations of the multi-state ballot harvesting operation became the subject of Dinesh D’Souza’s wildly popular ‘2000 Mules’ movie.

Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht

The release of the 2000 Mules movie was just the beginning of True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips’ fight to expose voter fraud in America. In July 2022, they invited a group of journalists to Arizona, where they hosted an event called “The Pit.” The event was created to reveal information they discovered about US election-related data that was allegedly being sent to China by E. Lansing, MI-based election software company Konnech, where it was being stored on servers in China.

Konnech almost immediately sued Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips for defamation.

On October 31, Federal Judge Kenneth Hoyt, who is the judge hearing the defamation case, unfairly held True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote investigator Gregg Phillips in contempt of court over their refusal to identify a confidential informant who helped them obtain information that led to the discovery and, later, evidence that Konnech was storing election-related data on servers in China.

After Yu’s arrest, DA Gascon thanked the investigators on the case and said, “Data breaches are an ongoing threat to our digital way of life. When we entrust a company to hold our confidential data, they must be willing and able to protect our personal identifying information from theft. Otherwise, we are all victims.”

Yesterday, the charges against the Konnech CEO were mysteriously dropped.

Now, Yu is free of all charges. After dropping the charges, DA Gascon made a statement in which he said, “We are concerned about both the pace of the investigation and the potential bias in the presentation and investigation of the evidence. As a result, we have decided to ask the court to dismiss the current case and alert the public in order to ensure transparency.”

On Thursday, True the Vote investigator and election fraud hero Gregg Phillips shared some interesting information on his Truth Social account that may explain the unexplainable Fetterman victory for in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. In his post on Truth, Phillips focused on Allegheny Co., PA, telling residents, “your leaders sold you and America out to China.”

Phillips explained, “More than that, we have irrefutable evidence that the entire PA voter registration file is living on a server in China—And, machine serial numbers, ballot bundle numbers, and—They didn’t steal it. They gave it to the CCP and PLA.”

He explained, “This is why we were put in prison. They had to silence us.”

A defiant Phillips said, “We will not sit down. We will not shut up.”

He signed his message:

Here We Go: Biden Regime Plans to Extend Covid-19 Public Health Emergency Through Spring of 2023

ORIGINAL LINK

The Biden regime is set to prolong the Covid-19 public health emergency once again through the spring of 2023, according to CNBC citing a Biden administration official.

In August, the government measures enhancing access to health coverage, vaccines, and treatments were extended by the Biden regime beyond the midterm elections.

With the proposed extension, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would keep the mandate in effect until the November midterm elections and possibly into early 2023.

The HHS has continually extended the public-health emergency since its implementation in January 2020.

“Covid is not over. The pandemic is not over,” one senior Biden official said. “It doesn’t make sense to lift this [declaration] given what we’re seeing on the ground in terms of cases.”

The declaration allows the US to grant emergency authorizations for drugs, vaccines, and other medical countermeasures.

On Friday, the Biden regime decided to extend the COVID public health emergency again until at least April, as public health officials are preparing for another Covid surge this winter.

There is no “emergency.” Anyone who tells you differently is lying. 97% of the country has Covid antibodies. Everyone who has wanted to get vaccinated has been jabbed as many as five times. The global mortality rate is <0.1%. The virus is 30x less deadly now. This is a scam.

— Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) November 11, 2022

CNBC reported:

The U.S. is extending the Covid public health emergency through the spring of 2023, a Biden administration official said on Friday.

The decision to extend emergency comes as public health officials are expecting another Covid surge this winter as people gather more indoors where the virus spreads easier. The future also remains uncertain as more immune evasive omicron subvariants become dominant in the U.S.

HHS did not send that notice out on Friday, the deadline, which means the emergency has been extended through the spring, the administration official said. How the U.S. fares against Covid this fall and winter will help determine whether the emergency needs to be renewed again moving forward, Becerra told reporters in October.

M.D.s take on Newsom over law that threatens their careers

ORIGINAL LINK

gavin-newsom-joe-biden-democrats.jpg

As Gavin Newsom, the California governor, continues proposing and passing new laws that affect Californians on all levels of their lives, one of those groups affected is now fighting back.

The law in question is one that is referred to as the "medical misinformation law," and it applies to physicians. Under it, the state medical board is allowed to discipline doctors who disseminate information about COVID-19 that differs from what is referred to as the "contemporary scientific consensus." In other words, if a doctor prefers another treatment method than the one recommended by the CDC or other medical groups, he or she is considered to be breaking the law and can be disciplined – and it likely would affect those doctors' ability to continue to practice medicine. This could involve disagreeing as to the use of masks or the efficacy of vaccines.

The law was passed by the California Legislature and was signed by Democrat Gov. Newsom. It is scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1.

It's doubtful that when Newsom signed the legislation he thought that physicians would fight back – but they are. Five doctors are suing the administration in district court, in an effort to block its implementation. The group claims that the law violates their First Amendment rights and their constitutional right to due process.

The physicians argue that the law prevents a physician from freely communicating with a patient as to a proper course of treatment. They also argue that "contemporary scientific consensus" is "undefined in the law and undefinable as a matter of logic."

The law applies to the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California. Members of these boards are appointed by the governor and legislators, and seven of the 15 members may not even be licensed physicians.

That raises the issue of politically appointed members with no medical qualifications making medical judgments against decisions by licensed physicians.

A plaintiff in the suit is Dr. Tracy Hoeg, who has been the senior author of nine epidemiological analyses. As quoted in a National Review interview, she said she is "afraid of saying something to my patients that I know is consistent with the current scientific literature but may not yet be accepted by the California Medical Board." She said physicians must "feel free to speak truthfully with their patients if they wish to gain and maintain their trust."

In addition to the physician feeling comfortable in their treatment of patients, the patients themselves must have confidence in the skill and ability of their doctor to make the proper decisions as to treatment.

The doctors in the case are being represented by the New Civil Liberties Alliance, a nonpartisan civil rights firm. Jenin Younes, counsel for the firm, said that the law is "the result of an increasingly censorious mentality that has gripped many lawmakers in this country."

Younes added, "That this shocking bill passed through the state legislature and was signed into law by Gov. Newsom demonstrates that far too many Americans do not understand the First Amendment."

This is an issue all Californians should keep an eye on to see how it plays out in court, especially because it relates to other laws that have been and are being passed that restrict the rights of citizens.

Just because the legislature and the governor say it is a law we need doesn't mean that's the case. Citizens have the right to dispute it. Use the courts. That's what they're for!

Conspiracies Are the New Normal. Public is Spoon-fed Fear and Confusion.

***

No doubt, none of us can recall a time when the world at large has faced so many problems and crises that impinge upon the well-being and mortality of billions of people.

The Covid-19 pandemic has taught us that for the average person the human psyche is extraordinarily fragile and can easily be overwhelmed with anxiety, dread, depression and anger. People desperately sought solutions to ameliorate an all-pervading angst as society was being completely reconfigured in the image of those who hold power, influence and wealth. There was a time in the past when we believed our elected officials would enact laws to protect the citizenry and provide a climate for sustaining a normal, productive life.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, those who could capitalize on its opportunities found the means to push forward non-democratic agendas to displace normalcy. In its place the masters of government and industry assured us that existential angst is our new fate. Faith in any institutional security has collapsed into a tragic theater as the younger generations face an uncertain future and life loses its purpose and meaning.

The majority of people’s beliefs are grounded and conditioned upon the input and information they receive. Through a compromised media, the consuming public is spoon-fed a heavy dose of fear and confusion. Those who make efforts to pull back the curtain to expose the wizard of a dystopian globalist Oz are marginalized and officially canceled by Silicon Valley and an army of faux fact checkers. Consequently, it should come as no surprise that the culture of non-transparency draping the halls of Washington, the international health institutions, professional medical associations, and the pharmaceutical complex has sparked public suspicions about conspiratorial opertions to shred democracy and individual rights and freedoms.

Objective skepticism, the ability to turn towards the mind’s faculty for critical thought, has rapidly declined in American society for several decades. Yet a healthy skepticism is necessary for questioning both the rhetoric and misinformation of “official” views and propaganda, including hints of what is commonly ridiculed as conspiracy. The word “conspiracy” has lost its meaning and credibility in the American lexicon. Rarely does mainstream media, professional associations and think tanks, and official federal public relations and propaganda contextualize the term to simply implicate wrongdoing and corruption. When used by authorities, “conspiracy” is almost always pejorative, a means to slander, accuse and marginalize people as loons and quacks. As a result we are led to believe the gospel word of officialdom: the Warren report, the 911 Commission, and everything spouted from Anthony Fauci, the White House and federal health agencies regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and the wave of pro-vaccine mania.

Very often conspiracies are ridiculous, bordering on the surreal and absurd. However, past examples of politically motivated black flag operations and secretive agendas created in corporate boardrooms and government halls cannot rule out that conspiracies don’t exist or never have. When there is sound reason to question the integrity of a politician, health official, media pundit, or a corporate executive, it is natural for the inquisitive mind to explore more deeply the hidden motivations and goals underlying the thoughts and actions of conspiracies’ physical footprints. In most cases it is the evidence of contradictions, hypocrisies and confirmed blatant lies by individuals in authority that give birth to the conspiratorial mind.

Conspiracies conducted by the government, which resulted in unnecessary violence and death, are proven to have occurred or at least certainly planned:

the Gulf of Tonkin, the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, the CIA staged coup to oust Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, and the failed Operation Northwood scheme by the CIA and Pentagon to launch acts of terror against Miami residents.

Before the 2001 anthrax scare identified any individual or group behind the toxic letters, according to an FBI whistleblower, the Bush White House instructed the FBI to blame the attacks on al-Qaeda; later it was revealed that the threats were carried out by one or more US government employed scientists. In addition, the US government frequently launches conspiratorial misinformation campaigns throughout the major corporate media and Silicon Valley complex in order to support its clandestine and long term agendas. Furthermore, the media makes every effort to seduce us into believing that we don’t have conspiracies in the banking system, the pharmaceutical industry, and the government intelligence apparatus.

NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander claimed publicly that intelligence surveillance of the American public “foiled” 54 terrorist attacks by extremists. Independent research confirmed that in fact only one, and a possible second, attack could be directly associated with the war on terrorism. The media never questioned the accuracy of Alexander’s claim nor provided evidence to the contrary. Repeatedly Obama lied to the American people about the largess of the national security state and its infiltration into the lives of average citizens, including massive data collection of private phone calls, emails and internet activity. The federal government is a vast sea of conspiracies operative at any given moment. Edward Snowden documented proof that intelligence surveillance is far more extensive than officially reported. But others can be cited throughout the recent activities of the FBI, CIA, Pentagon, FISA courts, USDA and FDA and CDC, and the Justice Department. Additional confirmed conspiracies planned by our executive branch, the CIA, military and other federal agencies include:

  • A US Congressional committee acknowledged that the CointelPro campaign included the FBI employing provocateurs from the 1950s to 1970s to carry out terrorist acts in order to blame civil political activists.
  • Bush’s justice department Attorney General John Yoo recommended that the US create a false terrorist organization for the purpose of conducting terrorist attacks that could be blamed on al-Qaeda.
  • Overwhelming scientific evidence now can debunk the official report that the three World Trade buildings could not have collapsed in free fall from jet-fuel fires alone.
  • Government has covered up conspiracies waged against Americans by other nations. The Israeli bombing of the USS Liberty and the planting of bombs in US diplomatic facilities in Egypt by Israeli terrorist cells are two examples.
  • State Department documents show the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff planned to bomb the US consulate in the Dominican Republic in order to win popular support for an invasion of the country.
  • During the US occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, American soldiers were instructed to leave weapons near bodies of innocent civilians they killed in order to make the claim they were terrorists.
  • The Tuskegee Syphilis Study conducted by the US Public Health Service between 1932 to 1972, which experimented with unknowing poor African American men in violation of the Nuremberg Code.
  • The 2000 Simpsonwood meeting convened by the CDC with major health agencies and executives of vaccine makers to cover-up scientific evidence that mercury in vaccines were contributing to the increase in autism.
  • The whistleblower document dump by a senior CDC epidemiologist, Dr. William Thompson, revealing that the health agency under Julie Gerberding’s directorship destroyed internal research proving the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine contributed to a 250 percent higher rate of autism in African American boys. Gerberding went on to become president of Merck’s vaccine division with a $2.5 million salary and $38 million in stock options.
  • The thirty-year asbestos covered up of prior knowledge about asbestos’ association with respiratory illness and cancer in order to avoid lawsuits
  • The CIA’s mind control operations known as MK Ultra from the 1950s into the 1970s before being exposed by the Church Committee.
  • The Iran-Contra Affair in 1985 to secretly sell arms to Iran in order to fund Nicaraguan Contras.
  • The October Surprise during the Carter-Reagan presidential election when Reagan insiders met with Iranian revolution leaders in Europe to prevent the release of American hostages until after Reagan’s inauguration if he won the election.

These are only examples indicting factions within the federal government with treason to conduct conspiratorial acts. When the brilliant journalist I.F. Stone wrote, “Every government is run by liars, and nothing they say should be believed,” he could have been speaking about the entire gamut of federal agencies. Examples of legalized terror are aplenty and reveal actions solely for the pursuit of profit at the cost of Americans’ health. This has become particularly epidemic in private industry:

  • Merck’s withholding evidence from the FDA that its blockbuster drug Vioxx had serious health risks, including heart attack, stroke and death. The drug was responsible for at least a very conservative toll of 60,000 deaths.
  • In 2009, Pfizer was fined $2.3 billion for what was then the largest healthcare felony settlement in US pharmaceutical history for illegally promoting its drugs, including its painkiller Bextra. $1.2 billion was for the criminal fine then the largest imposed in the US.
  • The US Justice Department charged Johnson and Johnson $2.2 billion in criminal fines for marketing its autism and anti-psychotic drug Risperdal for unapproved uses. Forty-five states filed civil lawsuits against J&J in the scandal
  • Lawsuits continue to pile up against Merck for punitive damages, negligence, strict liability with failure to warn, manufacturing defects and common law fraud due to injuries associated with its HPV vaccine Gardasil.
  • A group of CDC scientists who called themselves SPIDER (Scientists Preserving the Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research) turned anonymous whistleblowers after releasing a written complaint criticizing the agency for operating as a tax-funded subsidiary of the drug industry in partnership with the FDA.
  • The legal suits against the agricultural giant Monsanto hid years of research and evidence of its active Round Up chemical glyphosate being responsible for DNA damage, birth defects, and a variety of cancers
  • Federally funded researchers forcefully administered highly toxic AIDS drugs in experiments on foster care children in a New York children’s center;

Besides withholding truthful claims, individuals, groups, companies or governments targeted in conspiracy theories share an atmosphere perceived as clandestine and secret. In the private sector, conspiracies are voluminous and are permitted to continue behind the backs of federal crime authorities. For decades independent voices have suggested that Wall Street has undue influence over the Federal Reserve and government economic policies. On the contrary, tens of thousands of articles, books and opinion essays, reinforced with solid scholarship, reveal we do in fact have an epidemic of conspiracies in our midst. Yet there is barely a legislator or journalist in corporate media with the courage to independently investigate the leads behind current events.

The corporate media is also complicit in our nationwide conspiracy of corruption and criminal behavior. The media wonks of public opinion, at the behest of federal and corporate pressure, control the issues that the public should or should not hear. Consequently our media engages in campaigns of psychological terror by keeping the public in doubt and fear. Something is terribly wrong when there is such disparity between official rhetoric and the destruction of civil freedoms, justice, sovereignty and constitutional guarantees now decimating human rights and the quality of life across the US. For example, the Biden White House instructed the justice department on the behalf of local school boards nationwide to consider any and all parents who challenge school board’s policies and rules. Instead such parents should be identified and pursed as domestic terrorists, thereby stifling all free speech that challenges government policies.

America is awash in conspiracy. Every firm on Wall Street and in the large private industrial complexes—oil and fossil fuels, nuclear energy, military and national security contractors, the pharmaceutical industry, agro-chemical firms—regularly and repeatedly engage in legal and illegal conspiracies against the American public. Private corporations and their employees have settled many thousands of lawsuits.

On occasion accused individuals, usually propped as patsies and fall guys, have gone to jail. But in the majority of cases companies negotiate settlements and walk away without remorse and are able to retain their ill-gotten gains. JP Morgan settled on $13 billion for mortgage fraud, which left thousands of families homeless. Wachovia was slapped for a mere $800 million for money laundering hundreds of billions of dollars including dark money associated with the illegal drug trade. In every private industry we discover numerous resolved class action suits with underlying conspiratorial intentions to deceive the public and federal regulators. Corruption is systemic throughout corporate America and increases with every bill to further deregulate.

A seductive characteristic of many reasonable conspiracy theories is that they cannot be ruled out entirely. For this reason they gain popular traction and proliferate. Research conducted by psychologists Michael Wood and Karen Douglas at the University of Kent in the UK, and findings by political scientist Lance DeHaven in his book Conspiracy Theory in America, indicate that conspiracy theorists are more sane and intellectually mature than our na├»ve leaders in government and the major two political parties who more fanatically attach themselves to anti-conspiracy beliefs.i  For example, the Kent studies showed that two of three viewers of mainstream media reporting on the events of 9/11 disbelieved the networks.

The full throttle efforts to enforce experimental Covid mRNA vaccines and threaten jobs and educations generated a flurry of conspiratorial charges leveled against the vaccine makers, Anthony Fauci, the NIAID, the CDC and the Biden administration. Since conspiracies arise due to observable inconsistencies, contradictions and obvious misstatements, there is every reason for a critical thinking person to realize that the official narrative is contrary to the growing number of first person accounts of deception at every level. Words don’t match reality. Numerous medical professionals and physicians have spoken out against:

  • The accuracy of PCR testing to track the pandemic and determine case counts;
  • The manner in which Covid-19 deaths were recorded, which included deaths caused by other medical conditions including pneumonia and other infectious diseases;
  • Unwarranted changes in the World Health Organization’s definition of a pandemic and herd immunity;
  • The violation of international laws by enforcing an experimental vaccine on the public;
  • Suppression of accurate data and reports of Covid vaccine injuries and deaths;
  • The suppression of effective and inexpensive lifesaving drugs such as Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine;
  • Years of scientific evidence against the effectiveness of masks and social distancing and lockdowns;
  • Confirmed lies that the vaccines prevented infection and transmission of the SARS-2 virus and its variants

The widespread censorship of scientific voices within the orthodox medical community is only the tip of the iceberg; however, it provides certainty that the policies and strategies being endorsed are by no means science-based. Similar to the worst kinds of religious fundamentalism that represses and engages in violence against non-believers, the commercial based medicine advocated by Fauci and the government’s network of medical institutions, drug companies and philanthropists like Bill Gates are determined to excommunicate those who criticize their dogma. In every worse possible way the medical establishment is emulating religious institutions that have been totally intolerant of dissenters. We can and should have enormous respect for science when it is conducted in an objective methodological manner aligned with ethical intent; however we should pay no respect for science that is dogmatic, fundamentalist and intolerant. A growing body of evidence now shows that official propaganda about the SARS-2 virus’ origins, the vaccines, and the demonization of safe, cheap and effective treatments has been antithetical to real science. The federal medical complex’s handling of the crisis was an utter failure from the start. And now we are witnessing the larger cost of this incompetence appearing in unexpected harm such as enormous spikes in mental health disorders, suicides, and an epidemic of Covid vaccine-induced injuries and deaths.

Yet the more disconcerting problem is that the CDC and WHO have been in complete denial about the facts on the ground and persist in giving false information and disingenuous excuses to avoid accountability.

Fortunately the pandemic has now been firmly exposed as a scam as federal inconsistencies and new information further implodes their narrative. The public will then need to rise up, along with the dissenting medical community, and demand legal accountability for the perpetrators of this pandemic terrorism.

Mortgage payments surge 50% since last year

ORIGINAL LINK

By John Hugh DeMastri
Daily Caller News Foundation

As mortgage rates climbed, typical monthly mortgage payments on existing single-family homes with a 20% down payment skyrocketed by 50% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the year prior, according to data released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Thursday.

Monthly mortgage payments under the above conditions climbed to $1,840 between July and September, and the median price of existing single-family homes climbed 8.6% on an annual basis to $398,500, according to the NAR. This monthly payment represented 25% of a family’s monthly income, and was up dramatically from the same time last year, when the typical payment was just $1,226, roughly 17.2% of a family’s income.

WND is now on Trump's Truth Social! Follow us @WNDNews

First-time buyers in the third quarter spent nearly 38% of their family income on mortgage payments, blowing past the 25% threshold that the NAR considers to be the maximum affordable, the NAR reported. Mortgage applications were down 41% the week ending Nov. 4, compared to the same week the year prior, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported Nov. 9.

“Much lower buying capacity has slowed home price growth and the trend will continue until mortgage rates stop rising,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said in the press release. “The median income needed to buy a typical home has risen to $88,300 – that’s almost $40,000 more than it was prior to the start of the pandemic, back in 2019.”

The share of all-cash repeat buyers jumped from 17% to 27% in the past year. Additionally, first-time buyers moving directly from a family member’s home into homeownership is at an all-time high. #NARHBS https://t.co/9TI0z1B4ll

— NAR Research (@NAR_Research) November 10, 2022

Of the 10 most expensive housing markets in the country, fully half were located in California, according to the NAR. Despite this, price increases in the South and Northeast surpassed the 7.4% price increase seen across the West, at 11.9% and 8.2% respectively, while the Midwest enjoyed a noticeably below-average price hike of 6.6%.

“The more expensive markets on the West Coast will likely experience some price declines following this rapid price appreciation, which is the result of many years of limited home building,” Yun said. “The Midwest, with relatively affordable home prices, will likely continue to see price gains as incomes and rents both rise.”

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate was 7.08% as of Nov. 10, according to Freddie Mac, continuing a trend that has put downward pressure on housing sales. While prices have been rapidly declining to compensate, they could plunge by as much as 20%, according to chief economist of Pantheon Macroeconomics, Ian Shepherdson.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America's currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”

Stanford tells doctors to give false information in order to overcome vaccine hesitancy

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post By Steve Kirsch

I found a Stanford course used to train doctors worldwide on how to overcome vaccine hesitancy. Basically, they tell doctors to give false information. They truly believe the false narrative.

Here’s the link for the Stanford course that teaches doctors how to overcome vaccine hesitancy:

It’s a series of short YouTube videos. It’s free to watch all the videos.

Here is the outline of the cases covered:

I viewed a number of the lessons to save you the pain and agony.

Some takeaways:

  1. They don’t expect to turn people around to support the vaccine in a single session. They admit it can take many sessions.
  2. They clearly think that people who don’t take the vaccine are simply misinformed and need to be set on the right track.
  3. They recommend giving people false information (like saying the risk of myocarditis is higher for the virus than the vaccine) in order to deal with their objections. Of course, they don’t admit in the course that their advice is false.
  4. At no time should the doctor try to learn anything from the patient (like that the doctor is wrong). It’s all about getting the patient to conform to the narrative, not to discover truth. None of the interventions are designed to examine the data or find the truth or allow the patient to change the doctor’s mind. You are never supposed to do anything like look at the data!
  5. I really think they should do their therapy session on me as one of their case studies. If they can show people how they set me on the “correct path,” that would be astonishing. It would be so entertaining to watch them try to do that. People would pay money to see that. I can’t figure out where I can volunteer to do that.
  6. One of the references is to a paper on why people resisted making the HPV vaccine mandatory. I can tell you why people resisted the HPV vaccine… that vaccine is the second most dangerous vaccine in VAERS, that’s why. Only the COVID vaccines are more dangerous. It has 3 times the number of adverse events that all other vaccines combined at the time it was introduced. That’s why!

Summary

If you want insight into how “they” think about “us,” this is a good reference.

Another Stolen Election

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Paul Craig Roberts

This time it is CNN’s own report on its own exit polls that indicates a stolen election.

Today November 9, 2022, updated at 10:49 AM EST, CNN reporters Zachary B. Wolf and Curt Merrill remarked that the widely expected red wave did not materialize and then went on to present data that is inconsistent with the closeness of the voting.

The reporters compare the exit polls from the 2018 elections with those of the 2022 elections.  The comparisons show that the Democrats lost support in Tuesday’s elections among women, moderates, youth, people of color, urban voters, college graduates, and independents.

https://www.cnn.com/interactive/2022/politics/exit-polls-2022-midterm-2018-shift/

The Democrats’ support among women declined from 19 points favorable to Democrats to only 8 points.  Republican support among men rose from 4 points over Democrats to 14 points.

By age, the preference for Democrats over Republicans for 18-29 years of age declined from 35 points to 28 and for 30-44 years of age from 19 points to 4.  Republican support over Democrats rose from 1 to 10 points for those 45-64 years of age and from 2 to 12 points for those 65 and older.

White men’s preference for Republicans increased from 21 to 28 points. White women moved from a 50-50 split to an 8 point preference for Republicans.  Black women’s preference for Democrats declined from 85 points to 78.  Black men’s preference for Democrats declined from 76 points to 65.  Latina women’s preference for democrats fell from 47 points to 33; and Latino men’s preference for Democrats fell from 29 points to 8.

Urban voters preference for Democrats declined from 33 points over Republicans to 17 points. Suburban and Rural voters preferences for Republicans rose by 6 points and 15 points.

Democrats also lost support among white and black college graduates.  Among white votes without college degrees the preference for Republicans rose by 10 points.

Among moderates, the preference for Democrats eroded from 26 points to 15. Among conservatives the Republican advantage rose from 67 points t 83. Among liberals there was essentially no change.

The CNN exit polls show substantial erosion of the Democrat voting base since the 2018 election.  How can such substantial erosion be consistent with the lack of any significant Republican gain on Tuesday?

The outcome of Tuesday’s election is made even more difficult to comprehend by CNN’s reporters when they report:

“Back in 2018, 37% of voters said they were Democrats, compared with 33% who said they were Republicans and 30% who said they were independents. In 2022, it was Republicans who have the edge. When they won control of the House in 2018, Democrats had an advantage among independent voters. That is nearly gone in 2022.

“Both Democrats and Republicans improved their performance among the party faithful. But Republicans built a lead among voters who don’t have a a favorable view of either party. Democrats lost their edge among voters who have a favorable view of both parties.”

There are many other indications that indicate that much is amiss in the vote count. Polls show that Biden suffers an approval rate of only 36% and that a large majority of Americans do not want Biden to run for reelection in two years.  How is this preference consistent with the vote count of Tuesday’s election?

Consider also that the party in power loses representation in midterm elections, but despite the substantial turn away from Democrats revealed by CNN, this normal result did not occur on Tuesday.

Consider also public dissatisfaction with: record crime, record inflation with high food and gasoline prices, rising interest rates and falling home values, massive illegal immigration, forced indoctrination of school children with transgender theory and critical race theory, Biden’s Covid vaccination mandates that caused health injuries, deaths, and destroyed careers, Biden’s Covid lockdowns that destroyed businesses, jobs, supply chains and raised prices, Biden’s “Russian” sanctions that disrupted energy supply and raised the price of everything.  Considering all this dissatisfaction, how did Fetterman, a person impaired by a stroke and afflicted with problems speaking who wants to release criminals from prison, win a seat in the US Senate from Pennsylvania?  How did the same Georgia voter who returned Republican Gov. Kemp to office vote against black Republican and football star Herschel Walker in favor of black Democrat Warnock, who hates Trump and white people, for the US Senate?

Finally, consider the Diebold voting machines that malfunctioned in New Jersey, Arizona, and Texas, and Gateway Pundit’s report that in Detroit, Michigan, ballots were being delivered through the back door in the early hours of Wednesday morning long after the legal deadline.

Now, ask yourself, what is worse, a stolen US election or an American electorate so insouciant and out to lunch that they would keep a political party in office that is leading us into war with Russia and China, that hates white people and persecutes them, that has politicized the FBI and Department of Justice turning them into Gestapo agencies serving Democrat power, that fervently believes that parents are bad for children and should have no say in their education (brainwashing), that is demonizing normality and normalizing perversity, that . . . I could go on and on.   Here was a chance for voters to register their dissent, and according to the vote results they failed to do so.  If the vote count is honest, then the conclusion is that we must write off the American people as beings too stupid to survive as a free people.

This is why I much prefer to believe that the election was again stolen.

What can be done about stolen elections? Nothing.  Especially when a previously stolen election has left Democrats in control of the executive branch.  The executive branch is the police branch.  It is not going to enforce election or any law against itself.

The Democrat controlled cities are empires unto themselves. They can steal every election and nothing can be done about it.  The media is an appendage to the Democrat party.  The media supports whatever the official narrative is.

This is tomorrow’s, Thursday, November 10, column.  I am posting it November 9 prior to the construction of the official narrative that we will soon receive so that at least my readers will have a chance to think before the official  explanation is forced on them.

The REAL story behind RSV & the so-called “tripledemic”

ORIGINAL LINK

Guest Post by Kit Knightly

The “tripledemic” is upon us, according to the mainstream media. What is a “tripledemic”, you ask?

Apparently, it’s when we have simultaneous pandemics of influenza, Covid and RSV at the same time. At least, according to the LA Times:

A ‘tripledemic’ of flu, RSV and COVID is feared in California

And the Atlantic:

What a ‘Tripledemic’ Means for Your Body

And CBS:

“Tripledemic” in U.S. could bring deluge of patients to hospitals

All three stories – and there are many others out there too – hit the same handful of talking points.

They report that the flu is back after its “mysterious” disappearance during the Covid “pandemic” (the Alantic notes US flu cases reduced by well over 90% and calls it “getting lucky”, the doublethink is unbelievable).

They also warn that Covid is “still around” or “not over”, or some variation on that them.

However, the main thrust of the fear is reserved for RSV. Now, you’re all probably more than familiar with “flu”. And you’re definitely tired of hearing about Covid. But RSV could be a new one for you…so let me explain.

The virus

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is  – according to virus theory – one of the many viruses circulating in the general population at all times. To quote the Mayo Clinic’s website [emphasis added]:

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) causes infections of the lungs and respiratory tract. It’s so common that most children have been infected with the virus by age 2. Respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-ul) virus can also infect adults. In adults and older, healthy children, RSV symptoms are mild and typically mimic the common cold.

And according to the CDC:

Almost all children will have had an RSV infection by their second birthday […] Most RSV infections go away on their own in a week or two.

So, according to official sources, RSV is not serious in the vast majority of cases, and almost all of us have already had it.

In fact, seeing as the symptoms are both generic and mild, the odds are you have had it multiple times throughout your life and never really known. It’s simply one of the many viruses known to cause what we refer to as “the common cold”.

The deception

There’s a trick being played here, and as usual in the age of the “pandemic”, it’s a trick of language. The powers that be are exploiting linguistic ambiguity in order to generate fear.

Across most of the world, we simply refer to “a cold” or “the flu” almost interchangeably to describe the dozen or so respiratory infections we all get throughout our lifetime.

Most of the time we don’t know what specific virus or bacteria is supposedly the cause, we have no way of finding out and it doesn’t make any difference because the symptoms and treatments are all the same: Cough, fever, headache – bedrest, orange juice and painkillers.

Now, essentially, the media are taking advantage of that ubiquitous ambiguity by naming something that has always been there but pretending it is something new.

Here’s a case in point, the Scientific American published this article on November 4th, which headlines:

RSV Is Surging: What We Know about This Common and Surprisingly Dangerous Virus

Now, although the headline claims RSV is “surprisingly dangerous”, the article seems to go out of its way to prove the opposite.

  • “the virus is so common that nearly all children have encountered it by their second birthday.”
  • “It’s that ubiquitous,” Flores says. “Even adults are exposed to it repeatedly over time, so we develop some immunity to it.”
  • “In healthy adults and children, though, RSV typically presents as a common cold, with symptoms similar to those caused by other “common cold” viruses, such as rhinovirus, adenovirus and a couple of common coronaviruses.”
  • “For the average person, RSV is little more than a nuisance”

The article does warn that RSV can be “particularly dangerous for newborn babies and adults older than age 65” and the immunocompromised, but this is true of literally every pathogen . And even then, they go on to add:

only about 1 to 2 percent of children under six months with RSV need hospitalization (usually for a couple of days), and death is rare.

This is a tactic we’re all familiar with – it was routine, throughout the Covid narrative, for official voices to tell us to be afraid, whilst simultaneously explaining there was nothing to be afraid of.

This approach clearly serves some purpose, although I could not say for certain what that may be.

Regardless, the deception is obvious and clearly deliberate.

The question is, why?

The motive

To sum up – there is no reason to fear RSV infection. The media are clear about that themselves, even if they bury it under layers of hysterical headlines.

It is just one of the many viruses which cause – or are said to cause – cold or flu symptoms, all of which circulate the whole world constantly, especially at this time of year.

There’s ALWAYS a “tripledemic”, or a quademic or a septemic. The only difference is now they are naming it.

They are taking the routine and pretending it’s exceptional simply to try and frighten you.

Why?

Well, rather predictably, to sell vaccines.

Yes, you’ll be relieved to know that just as RSV is hitting the headlines for the first time EVER, they’ve also just produced the first ever vaccines against it.

On November 1st, Vox reported:

New RSV vaccines are coming. This is very, very good news.

Which claims:

After decades of failed efforts to produce an RSV vaccine, several highly effective ones are finally on the verge of approval.

On the same day, Pfizer announced “positive top-line data” for their new RSV vaccine, with CNN reporting:

After promising trial results for maternal RSV vaccine, Pfizer says it will seek FDA approval this year

That’s right, after decades of trying and dozens of failed attempts, the pharmaceutical companies have finally managed to create not just one but multiple effective vaccines against an endemic virus…just as the virus has  hit the headlines.

Now, this all sounds rather familiar, doesn’t it?

If you didn’t fall for this last time you don’t need me to warn you.

If you DID fall for this last time?

Well, fool you once shame on them, fool you twice…

We Just Witnessed A New “Lehman Brothers Moment”, And It Threatens To Unleash A Frenzy Of Panic On Wall Street

ORIGINAL LINK

Another domino has fallen.  We are being told that the failure of FTX “would be kind of like a Lehman Brothers event”, and at this hour FTX is on the verge of collapse.  There was a chance that FTX could survive when Binance announced a shocking rescue plan, but after looking at the books Binance has reportedly backed out of the deal.  As a result, investors that have poured billions into FTX are likely to lose everything.  And many believe that FTX’s heavily promoted token, FTT, is going to zero.  If you have been waiting for a financial disaster to happen, this certainly qualifies.  A lot of people that were “crypto millionaires” not too long ago are going to be totally wiped out.

Of course the collapse of FTX is going to be felt very widely, because a lot of really big “heavy hitters” were very heavily invested in FTX

Some of the prominent investors in the crypto exchange include – BlackRock, Ontario Pension Fund, Sequoia, Paradigm, SoftBank, Circle, Ribbit, Alan Howard, Multicoin, VanEck, and Temasek.

Sequoia invested in a $420 million round in the company at a $25 billion valuation in October 2021. Additionally, some of the heavy hitters in the capital market, namely Temasek, Paradigm, NEA, SoftBank, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Tiger Global, Insight Partners, the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board, and others, poured in capital worth $400 million at $32 billion in January 2022.

Even celebrities such as Tom Brady and Steph Curry had poured enormous sums of money into FTX.

Now all of that money could be gone.

One anonymous industry executive actually told CNN that the collapse of FTX “would be kind of like a Lehman Brothers event for the space”…

“I’m actually shocked by this,” an industry executive told CNN Business. “FTX failing … would be kind of like a Lehman Brothers event for the space. But if they have been successfully bailed out, then that would probably head things off at the pass.”

Sadly, that industry executive is quite right.

This is a major catastrophe.

When the deal between Binance and FTX was originally announced, FTT immediately lost over 2 billion dollars in value

FTT, the token native to crypto exchange FTX, lost most of its value after rival Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency firm, announced plans to acquire the company.

The coin traded at around $22 on Monday and sank below $5 Tuesday afternoon in New York. The sell-off wiped out more than $2 billion in value in the space of 24 hours.

But now Binance has completely pulled out of the deal.

After looking at the books, Binance decided that the problems at FTX are “beyond our control or ability to help”

A day after announcing a plan to buy its embattled rival, cryptocurrency exchange Binance pulled out of the deal, saying FTX’s problems were “beyond our control or ability to help.”

“As a result of corporate due diligence, as well as the latest news reports regarding mishandled customer funds and alleged US agency investigations, we have decided that we will not pursue the potential acquisition of http://FTX.com,” Binance said in a statement.

So now there is no hope for FTX.

And there is no hope for FTT.

These developments definitely played a major role in the tremendous turmoil that we witnessed on Wall Street on Wednesday

Stocks were lower on Wednesday — following recent market gains — as results of the midterm elections provided no clear answers about who would control Congress yet. A crypto selloff also weighed on markets.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 646.89 points, or about 1.95%, to 32,513.94. The decline was led by Disney, which fell 13.2% after the entertainment giant missed analysts’ estimates on the top and bottom lines. The S&P 500 shed 2.08% to 3,748.57, and the Nasdaq Composite slid 2.48% to 10,353.17.

Meanwhile, the rapidly growing tech industry crisis that has recently erupted just continues to get even worse.

We just learned that Facebook will be laying off more than 11,000 workers.  This is the very first time the company has done anything like this

Meta Platforms Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said the company will cut more than 11,000 jobs, calling himself responsible for the first major round of layoffs in the social media giant’s history.

In a letter to his employees, Mark Zuckerberg took full accountability for the decisions to let people go…

Today I’m sharing some of the most difficult changes we’ve made in Meta’s history. I’ve decided to reduce the size of our team by about 13% and let more than 11,000 of our talented employees go. We are also taking a number of additional steps to become a leaner and more efficient company by cutting discretionary spending and extending our hiring freeze through Q1.

I want to take accountability for these decisions and for how we got here. I know this is tough for everyone, and I’m especially sorry to those impacted.

Of course it is easy for him to say such things because he still has a job and he is still one of the wealthiest individuals on the entire planet.

In recent weeks, other major tech companies have been conducting large scale layoffs as well

1. Twitter: 50%

2. Cameo: 25%

3. Robinhood: 23%

4. Intel: 20%

5. Snapchat: 20%

6. Coinbase: 18%

7. Opendoor: 18%

8. Stripe: 14%

9. Lyft: 13%

10. Shopify: 10%

We have never seen layoffs of this magnitude in the entire history of the tech industry.

Even in 2008 and 2009 we didn’t see anything like this.

At this same time, we are seeing some very alarming real estate layoffs as that industry also plunges into a crisis.

For example, Redfin just announced that they will be letting 13 percent of their employees go…

Redfin is set to shutter its home-flipping business and reduce its workforce by 13%, laying off 862 employees.

About 264 of the job cuts will be directly related to the shutdown of RedfinNow, the company’s instant buying, or iBuying, business in which it purchases a home as-is, completes minor improvements and resells the home on the open market.

This is exactly what we would expect to see during the early stages of a major economic slowdown.

Unfortunately, much worse is ahead.  In fact, the times that we are moving into will greatly challenge all of us.

During the “Great Recession”, the Federal Reserve pushed interest rates to the floor, and that really helped stabilize the economy.

But the Federal Reserve can’t do that this time around because inflation is totally out of control.

So instead of reducing rates, the Fed is just going to keep raising them.

The economic outlook for 2023 is so bleak, and at this point almost everyone can see that really tough times are ahead.

Up until just recently, however, the financial markets were still doing relatively well.

But now a new “Lehman Brothers moment” has arrived, and it is likely that we will see quite a bit of panic on Wall Street as the implications of the collapse of FTX reverberate throughout the financial community.

Regardless of Who's Elected, Imperial Corruption Rules the Nation

ORIGINAL LINK
But in the meantime, enjoy the political theatrics down on the sand-strewn floor of the Coliseum.

While the much-touted differences between America's political parties get obsessive, hysterical attention, the sameness of Imperial corruption, waste and squalor regardless of who's in power gets little notice.Scrape away the differences--mostly in domestic issues--and we see the dead hand of Imperial Corruption is on the tiller.

The core of Imperial Corruption is the disconnect between the nation's ideals of representational democracy and open markets and the sordid reality: elites serve their interests by corrupting both democracy and open markets.

Unfettered democracy and markets cannot be controlled by a tiny, self-serving elite. Stripped of corruption, democracy and markets are free-for-alls that are constantly evolving, as highly adaptive islands of coherence coalesce that influence the quasi-chaos, competing with other islands of coherence but never gaining dominance due to the open-ended dynamism of collaboration-competition that is the beating heart of both democracy and open markets.

The only way to control democracy and markets to serve the interests of the few at the expense of the many is to corrupt them completely by destroying the dynamism of collaboration-competition. Democracy is replaced by an auction of political power to the highest bidder that rewards cronies and devotes all its resources not to solving the nation's problems but to whipping up conflagrations of divisiveness and partisan hysteria that wash away the middle ground where problems can actually be addressed.

This crippling of the nation's ability to actually solve difficult problems serves the interests of self-serving elites whose sole interest is accumulating personal wealth and power. Their proclaimed interest in solving the nations' real-world problems are fraudulent tissues designed to hide the putrid reality that all their so-called "solutions" distill down to sluicing huge sums of state money to cronies and campaign contributors under the guise of "solving problems."

The only "problem" America's elites know how to solve is the "problem" of how to get personally richer while tightening their control of the nation-state's vast flood of (taxed / borrowed) money. Cronies and contributors get tax breaks hidden in 1,000-page legislation and overflowing rivers of money (here's looking at you, Big Pharma, Big Defense, Higher Education, Sickcare, et al.).

America's elites are masters at misdirection and distraction: it's always the other side's fault that the nation is sliding down the wrong side of the S-Curve. The elites don't really care which side is in power, as they control them both to serve their own interests.

But something funny happens on the way to gaining control of complex emerging systems: that control destroys the system's self-correcting mechanisms and adaptability. Rigging the system to serve one's own interests destroys the system's ability to adapt to changing circumstances and selective pressures/

Once a system has been crippled to serve the interest of an elite, when forced to adapt or die, it can only die as its mechanisms of adaptation were destroyed by the power-grab of eleites. An economy dominated by a handful of cartels and quasi-monopolies is an economy that is doomed to slide into the dustbin of history, as cartels and monopolies "win" by crushing competition and competing islands of coherence, as competition threatens their profits and control of markets and governance, a.k.a. "democracy."

Any system that serves the interests of the few by choking off adaptability and the dynamisms of a free-for-all churn lacks the tools needed to avoid systemic collapse. By enabling elites to organize the nation to serve their personal interests, America has been stripped of the dynamics needed to adapt. Without these dynamics, collapse is the only possible outcome.

But in the meantime, enjoy the political theatrics down on the sand-strewn floor of the Coliseum.While Imperial Corruption undermines what's left of the nation's ability to adapt fast enough and successfully enough to survive what lies ahead, we can cheer the "winners" of the bloodsport and ignore the winds of disorder sweeping the land.

42% of young adults diagnosed with a mental-health condition

(Photo by Adam Flockemann on Unsplash)

(STUDY FINDS) -- Forty-two percent of America’s young-but-cynical Generation Z are dealing with a mental health condition, a new survey finds. A range of these issues were largely identified during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The analysis by Harmony Healthcare IT suggests tens of millions of Gen Z young adults started dealing with a mental health problem in the months immediately following the start of the global pandemic in March 2020. The Indiana-based data management company’s survey highlights a staggering percentage of young adults diagnosed with anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during the pandemic.

WND is now on Trump's Truth Social! Follow us @WNDNews

Three-quarters of these Americans, all under the age of 25, say the pandemic negatively impacted their mental health, with many citing loneliness and uncertainty about the future.

DeSantis Halts Biden Election Monitors In Florida Polling Locations

DeSantis Halts Biden Election Monitors In Florida Polling Locations

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has refused to allow federal election monitors from the Justice Department into polling locations.

In a statement earlier this week, the DOJ said it was sending officials to 64 jurisdictions throughout the country - most of which would be in red or purple states.

Included in the list was Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County.

Brad McVay, General Counsel at the Florida Department of State, responded...

"(T)he Florida Department of State received copies of your letters to Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in which you seem to indicate that the Department of Justice will send monitors inside polling places in these counties," reads a letter to the DOJ from McVay.

"We also understand you sent a similar letter to Palm Beach County."

"But Department of Justice monitors are not permitted inside a polling place under Florida law," McVay continues.

"Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who ‘may enter any polling room or polling place.Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list. Even if they could qualify as ‘law enforcement’ under section 102.031(3)(a)6. of the Florida Statutes, absent some evidence concerning the need for federal intrusion, or some federal statute that preempts Florida law, the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election."

In short, pound sand.

As the Daily Wire notes, McVay's letter noted that the Biden administration's communications with counties in Florida "do not detail the need for federal election monitors.

"None of the counties are currently subject to any election-related federal consent decrees," the letter continues. "None of the counties have been accused of violating the rights of language or racial minorities or of the elderly or disabled."

"Your letters simply provide a non-exhaustive list of federal elections statutes as the basis for this action without pointing to any specific statutory authorization," McVay concludes. "When asked for specific authorization during our phone call this evening, you did not provide any. Accordingly, the Florida Department of State invokes its authority under section 101.58(2) of the Florida Statutes to send its own monitors to the three targeted jurisdictions. These monitors will ensure that there is no interference with the voting process."

(FAITHWIRE) -- A therapist, who chose to speak out under a pseudonym for fear of retribution, recently explained her belief that culture’s handling of transgender-identifying minors is both tragic and dangerous.

“It’s solely based upon our feelings, and I don’t know about you, but I know my own feelings change from time to time,” the therapist, Carla, recently told journalist Brandon Showalter, host of the “Generation Indoctrination” podcast. “And this is particularly true of young girls in middle school. Young people’s feelings are all over the place.”

This dynamic, mixed with problematic assumptions, is creating a crisis, she said — one based on the lie happiness and feelings are at the core of truth.
