During the Gulf War in 1991, CNN shined like no other news network before. Their access to official military footage, embedded reporters, and around-the-clock coverage of the conflict reset the standard for war reporting, and we all tuned into the network to watch America kick the crap out of Saddam Hussein. It was at this time that CNN’s slogan of “The most trusted name in news” might have been accurate. But not anymore.
Following Biden’s election a year ago, the administration’s mismanagement of COVID via vaccine mandates has made it difficult to find the labor to operate shipping ports. In addition, the truck drivers are staying home in protest of the vaccine mandates, hampering the movement of the products when eventually unloaded. In reaction to the much less deadly Omicron variant, the CCP has nevertheless decided to shut down major shipping ports, which is guaranteed to significantly disrupt the global supply of everyday products worldwide.
The deep state is behaving like any other criminal enterprise. Success leads to hubris and their adventures get bolder and bolder. The deep state has already affected an election outcome. How swollen do you suppose their ego has become? But eventually hubris meets nemesis. They go too far. They take too many chances, and are exposed. Was January 6 the operation that went too far? Was stealing an election not enough? Did they have to discredit all conservatives as well?
Take a look at this week’s meme challenge! What is Joe saying?
They claimed that the empty shelves and the bottleneck at the ports resulted from Americans spending and buying like never before. Well, the numbers are in for retail sales in December, and like everything else this week, the numbers do not favor the Administration. The retail sales for December were actually down 1.7% from 2020, which was a disappointing holiday season. So if sales were down, inflation up, the shelves empty, and the ships out of sight but still stacked up outside our ports, how did Joe and Pete save Christmas?
Thank goodness Sinema is willing to step up and stop the left from destroying the filibuster. One wonders if a moderate Republican would be willing to do the same in her situation. I doubt it.
The issue of lionizing obesity is a problem in and of itself, but in light of entire countries having recently mandated additional insurance costs for unvaccinated individuals, it is even more incensing. If the unvaccinated are leading to more crowded hospitals and more healthcare expenses, then the statistics on obesity-related costs should provoke even more outrage. Where is their surcharge? Where is the alleged concern for health outcomes? Once more, both common sense and The Science™ are failing us.
We couldn’t have a week go by without our esteemed president making another wild claim, this time asserting that he was once arrested in his younger days during a civil rights march. Even the Washington Post gave him four Pinocchios for this one. We can only assume that this alleged arrest happened sometime between being awarded the Medal of Honor for trying to help Bubba and his other friends get out of that jungle and then appearing on the Dick Cavett show with John Lennon.

If that doesn’t seem like a viable game-plan, do “Joe Biden,” Tony Blinken, and Lloyd Austin really suppose we would transport x-number of US troop divisions six thousand miles from Kansas to slug it out with those Russian divisions poised at the edge of their own homeland? Have a look at the world map and contemplate the logistical picture. Not so favorable for us, wouldn’t you agree? A long way to re-supply our boys, gals, and theys in uniform with fresh Kit-Kat bars.
In an article titled, “Omicron wave prompts media to rethink which data to report,” the AP cited COVID case counts and hospitalizations as “barometers of the pandemic’s march across the world” but that the latest surge “is making a mess of the usual statistics, forcing news organizations to rethink the way they report such figures.”
Look no further than their party if you need proof of how poorly Biden and Harris are performing. Bernie Sanders talks of supporting a more radical Democrat to primary against Biden in 2024. He has yet to name who that might be. Hillary is talked about as a replacement for Biden once they convince him not to run. Some feel Stacey Abrams snubbed Biden in Georgia because she plans to run against him for the Oval Office.
Want your 6-year-old to learn basic reading, writing, and math skills in kindergarten rather than the insane ramblings of delusional critical race theorists? Well, if you send your kids to a kindergarten Hayward Unified School District, a school district in the Bay Area, you’re out of luck; they’ll be learning ridiculous CRT concepts whether you like it or not.
It goes without saying that I do not believe any parent should have to surrender their kid to state for the reasons stated by Joe Murphy. But I will make one exception: Joe Murphy’s kids. They can be removed (and for their own wellbeing, probably should be).
In the usual distortional way, the newest mainstream Covid narratives are finally acknowledging basic facts that would suggest a reduction for concern while simultaneously ramping up alarmism to maintain extreme precautions. It’s a powerful reminder that the ruling class has no inclination to ever be honest with, or relinquish its desired authority over, us.
Biden and his criminal cronies are literally holding a dagger to the throat of America’s constitutional republic, because they wish to totally eradicate it, so they can have complete and total power. This is the reason they urgently want all elections in their hands and the hands of a massive centralized federal government, and they seek to complete this power grab through open voting without any identification of voters, non-citizen and Illegal Aliens voting, and UNVERIFIABLE mail-in ballots that are completely different from Absentee Ballots request by the individual entitled to use them, among other things.
Several videos have surfaced on Twitter that show white concrete barriers being placed around the White House’s front lawn. The video shows a digger lifting up white concrete barriers known as K-Rails. Construction workers would then place long pieces of white plywood on top of the K-Rails. In times past, K-Rails would be resurrected when foreign officials are in town, but according to Biden’s schedule, there aren’t any planned meetings with any foreign officials. Andrew Leyden, a YouTuber who has become quite notable for filming the DC area, also filmed the ongoing construction.
Here is the answer to a question people have been asking since Monday. Why did Stacey Abrams snub Joe Biden on Tuesday refusing to appear on stage with him in Atlanta? The answer, a new political poll shows America is rejecting Biden and the Democrat party going into the 2022 mid-term election year. A new Quinnipiac poll shows that only ONE-THIRD of Americans approve of a president who they were told got 81 million votes — the most in the history of U.S. elections.
Biden started yelling instead of whispering at his January 6th speech, and that method continued in Georgia. He is coming across as divisive and very non-Presidential. The messaging and delivery are not working for this White House. There is no indication they know how to fix these problems. This White House is drawing more comparisons to Jimmy Carter, and that administration did not work well for Democrats.
On Tuesday, Project Veritas released some of the most intense Covid-related documents I have come across. The old axiom goes that life is stranger than fiction, and some of what was published certainly accomplished that. Indeed, a work from Bradbury or Vonnegut might not have conjured up such fantastical story elements.
And in the end, even this will probably not be enough, given the size of our federal government – this Leviathan – and the more than a hundred years of communist infiltration it has experienced. Our institutions now seem to live to grow their own power, much more so than to serve ‘We the People’, and very little they do today actually benefits the average American, but always benefits Corporate America and the fat-ass do-nothing bureaucrats who love themselves and their power far more than America, in the style of Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Ilhan Ohmar, Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Speaker Pelosi.
Do federal employees really stimulate the economy with their spending? They’re only spending money that was forcibly taken from others, and then largely spent on nonsense. Given that much of what they do isn’t value-adding, it stimulates the economy about the same way “mostly peaceful” youths do when they conduct a smash-and-grab at the local department store. It’s more redistribution than stimulation, and not what a healthy economy needs. The only way for the government to actually stimulate the economy is to cut taxes and get out of the way of business.
Woke Insanity: Report Shows Dr. Fauci’s NIAID Spent More Than $205,000 To Give Monkeys Transgender Hormones
Dr. Fauci’s agency approved a $205,562 grant for the fiscal year of 2022 to Scripps Research for a study to determine why transgender women have high rates of HIV, the Washington Free Beacon first reported. The study uses animal experiments. Researchers give male monkeys feminizing hormone therapy to investigate whether female hormones make the immune system more vulnerable to HIV infection, according to NIH.
We saw Dr. Fauci and Dr. Walensky contradict each other last week about basic COVID prevention and treatment recommendations. This lack of coordination cannot happen. These people have to be in sync, but it got worse. When asked by FOXNews about the percentage of COVID deaths that were directly attributed to the virus, she did not have the answer. She is the director of the one agency tasked with knowing everything about illness and disease in this country. This should have been an easy question to answer. She did clarify the situation later when she announced that as high as 40% of the deaths labeled as COVID were attributed to another cause, but the person tested positive for COVID.
Consider that many of the chips used in industrial control systems are produced in Taiwan. After a Communist takeover, the CCP could mandate that circuitry be added to the chips that would allow them to be shut down by remote command. This has already been a concern regarding systems assembled in the mainland and would leave Western industries open to a kind of blackmail by the CCP.
