Never mind that the very term “Islamophobia” is used to silence all legitimate criticism of Islam. Such criticism is said to be based on an “irrational hatred” (a phobia) of Islam and of Muslims, but many of us believe that anyone who studies both the text of the Qur’an, and the observable behavior of Muslims toward non-Muslims both now, and during the past 1400 years, has good grounds for alarm about the Muslims in our midst.

Ilhan Omar’s proposal that a special envoy be appointed who would monitor and fight islamophobia, is discussed previously at Jihad Watch here, and here also: “Omar leads lawmakers in calling for US envoy to combat Islamophobia,” by Aris Folley, The Hill, July 20, 2021:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and other Democratic lawmakers have signed onto a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken urging him to appoint a special envoy tasked with monitoring and combatting Islamophobia.

In the letter sent Tuesday [July 20], Omar and two dozen other lawmakers cited the spike in Islamophobia seen in recent years as well as the “persecution of Muslims manifesting itself around the world.”

What “spike in Islamophobia” is that? Hasn’t she noticed that during the past decade the Western world has flung open its gates to millions of Muslims who have been allowed to settle in the very midst of European states, deep behind what Muslims are taught to regard as enemy lines? Muslims have brought a “spike” in crime rates and in terrorism wherever they live. By taking advantage of every possible benefit that the generous welfare states of Western Europe offer – free or highly subsidized housing, free education, free medical care, family allowances, and more, Muslim migrants have cost the European taxpayers tens of billions of dollars – and counting.

All of this surely contributes to the “rational” antipathy that Europeans increasingly feel toward the Muslim migrants now in their lands, who largely refuse to integrate, supplement their welfare payments with crimes of property, and threaten the security on the streets of both women and of Jews. Meanwhile, both governments and the media confuse the public, in some cases by failing to identify Muslim terrorists as Muslims, or if they are so identified, the public is so often told by the police that the perpetrator was likely suffering from a “mental illness.” No one bothers to investigate what is in the Qur’an that explains perfectly such behavior by Muslims, including their duty to “strike terror in the hearts of the Unbelievers.” Mainstream journalists, and the police, are hellbent on ensuring that the public does not learn the contents of the Qur’an. Big Tech companies – including Google and Facebook – are willing collaborators in this effort, making it harder for islamocritical sites such as Jihad Watch to reach their potential audience. Public figures, from presidents on down, bend over backward to assure the public that Islam is a “tolerant and peaceful religion,” and tell us that “we mustn’t allow extremists to define Islam. We must not make the mistake of blaming Islam. For if we do, the terrorists will have won.”

Meanwhile, in the real world, since 9/11/2001 there have been nearly 40,000 separate terrorist attacks by Muslims.

When people start to mistrust or dislike Muslims, such feelings are based on what they observe of Muslim behavior and attitudes. It is based on real evidence and does not reflect a pathological mental condition. Antisemitism is a very different phenomenon. It is a pathological condition; Jews are hated not for what they say or do, but for who they are. And nothing they say or do will change the mind of the convinced antisemite.

Antisemitism is a much bigger problem than anti-Muslim attitudes; outside Muslim countries themselves, where sectarian strife is common, anti-Muslim attitudes rarely result in violence. Jews in the U.S. are 2.5 times as likely to be attacked than Muslims. Outside the U.S., in Europe, anti-Jewish attacks are 5 ties more likely than anti-Muslim attacks.

The lawmakers also pointed to a recent annual report released by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), in which the office identified multiple countries with “patterns of mistreatment and human rights violations against either their entire Muslim populations or particular sects of Muslims.

Obviously the situation of Muslims in China, where one million Uighurs are in re-education camps, a carefully-bowdlerized Qur’an is the only version of the book that Muslims may possess, imams are humiliated by being made to dance in public and declare their allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party, the observance of Ramadan is made more difficult by forcing restaurants to remain open all day but then to close at night before the Iftar dinner, long “Islamic” beards must be cut, and Muslim first names are forbidden, is very bad. But other than China, and to a much lesser extent Myanmar, there is very little mistreatment of Muslims except in Muslim lands themselves. In Pakistan, Sunni terrorist groups such as Sipah-e-Sahaba specialize in killing Shiites, destroying their mosques and schools. Also in Pakistan, Ahmadi Muslims are by law not allowed to identify themselves as Muslims; they are despised as “Qadianis” who are guilty of “blasphemy” for believing that the 19th-century founder of the sect was indeed the Last of the Prophets. Ahmadis are a frequent object of both government repression and of private parties desirous of inflicting their own murderous punishments for blasphemy on the Ahmadis.

In Saudi Arabia, the Shi’a, almost all of whom live in the Eastern Province of al-Hasa where the oilfields are located, are mistreated by their Sunni political overlords; the Shi’a-populated province receives less aid from the central government to build much-needed infrastructure than any other region; it is also difficult for the Shi’a to obtain government employment. In Iran, it is the reverse. The Sunni Baloch in eastern Iran, on the border with Pakistan, are discriminated against by the Shi’a central government. Finally, in Afghanistan, the uber-Sunni Taliban was in the process of massacring the Shi’a Hazara in 2001 when the American troops arrived and rescued them; the Taliban have this year already renewed attacks on the Hazaras, not even waiting for all of the American troops to leave.

Ilhan Omar and her fellow lawmakers again:

“In addition to state-sponsored policies of Islamophobia, we have seen a disturbing rise in incidents of Islamophobic violence committed by individuals connected to larger transnational white supremacist networks, including but by no means limited to the mosque shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019 and the recent murder of a Muslim Canadian family in London, Ontario,” the lawmakers wrote.

Other than China, where are there “state-sponsored policies of Islamophobia”? Only Myanmar comes to mind, for its attempt to drive Muslim Rohingya, regarded as a security threat by the Burmese Buddhists, into Bangladesh. But certainly, there are none anywhere in the Western world, where governments and the media have dedicated themselves to minimizing domestic Muslim threats. As for Omar’s reference to “larger transnational white supremacist networks,” neither Brendon Tarrant, who carried out the mosque shooting in Christchurch nor Nathaniel Veltman, who ran over a Muslim family in Ontario, had connections to such networks. They were lone wolves.

The lawmakers went on to strongly urge Blinken to establish the new role dedicated to combatting Islamophobia, calling it “a genuinely global problem that the United States should tackle globally.”

Ilhan Omar and her fellows want this proposal for the appointment of a special envoy on Islamophobia to achieve two goals. First, they want to impress upon the world that Muslims are every bit as much the victims of irrational hatred as the Jews whom Ilhan Omar thinks get far too much attention. Second, they want to use the charge of “Islamophobia” as a way to silence all legitimate Islam critics from continuing their work and, especially, to reduce their presence online.

Elder of Ziyon comments on this here.

This would make worldwide bigotry worse, not better.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom report that members of Congress reference various issues of religious intolerance, including antisemitism and intolerance towards Muslims. It also describes bigotry against Sikhs, Hindus, Yazidis, Christians and specific Christian sects like Copts and Jehovah’s Witnesses….

It would be interesting to know if Ilhan Omar would support the appointment of a special envoy on anti-Hinduism, who would have to focus on Muslim persecution of Hindus in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Would she want our government to establish a special envoy to report on the persecution of Sikhs in Pakistan? And what would Ilhan Omar say if President Biden were to appoint a special envoy on the persecution and murder of Christians worldwide, which — always excepting China and North Korea — is almost entirely the handiwork of Muslims in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey, and Nigeria?

I suspect – don’t you? –that Ilhan Omar would resent any attempt to enlarge the number of such envoys; she wouldn’t want anything to distract from the attention paid to the work of the newly-appointed envoy on “Islamophobia.” Why she might even volunteer to take on the task herself.

If Ilhan Omar has her way, this new envoy would focus only on discrimination by “white supremacists” against Muslims. Muslim discrimination against other Muslims, which affects tens of millions of Sunnis, Shia, Ahmadis, and Sufis, would simply be ignored.

Hatred of Jews is not based on rationality. It is, rather, a pathological condition. It has nothing to do with what Jews do or do not do, whether they are capitalists or communists, deeply religious or atheists, Little-Enders or Big-Enders. For this hatred, it is sufficient that they are Jews.

Whatever an antisemite loathes most is the very quality he will attribute to the Jews. Reality does not matter. If he hates the rich, the Jews are “shylocks of high finance.” If he is against vaccines, Jews are “pushing vaccines to cause sterility among the Gentiles.” And so on, with so many possibilities to pin on “the Jews,” each more absurd than the last.

Omar cannot abide the focus on antisemitism. The Jews, the Jews, always the Jews, she can’t stand it: “What about the Muslims? What about Islamophobia?” She wants to push Muslims forward as equally the victims – no, even greater victims – of unreasoning hatred, than are Jews. None of the statistics on hate crimes compiled by the FBI bear her out; Jews are 2.5 times as likely to be the victims of hate crimes as Jews. Furthermore, she specifies in her statement about a special envoy on Islamophobia that “white supremacists” are to be blamed, just as they to be blamed for antisemitism. Neither is true. It’s not white supremacists, it’s not even non-Muslims, but other Muslims of rival sects, who pose the greatest danger to Muslims.

Antisemitism is “the oldest hatred” in time and the one with the farthest range in space. In its violence and virulence, it far outdoes any of the other ethnic or religious hatreds. It can be found all over the lands of what was once Western Christendom. It can be found, too, all over the Muslim lands. Those who feel antipathy for Muslims do so because of what Muslims believe and do. Those who feel that extreme antipathy for Jews known as antisemitism do so no matter what Jews believe and do.

Antisemitism is a hatred that, in its obsessiveness, is like no other, and to be properly combated requires a long period of mental immunization that has to begin in early adulthood. This hatred can never disappear, though the number of its adherents can be reduced to manageable proportions. But no one, least of all a crude antisemite such as Ilhan Omar, should be allowed to divert energy and attention away from that fight by claiming, both falsely, and with malice aforethought, that “Islamophobia” is just as bad. There are six million ghosts who beg to differ.

 

New Nuclear Deal Would Empower the Iranian Regime

BY HANY GHORABA

SEE: https://www.investigativeproject.org/8945/new-nuclear-deal-would-empower-the-iranian-regime;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The current, bumpy negotiations aimed at preventing the Iranian regime from developing nuclear weapons are among the Biden administration's highest priorities. The administration lifted sanctions on more than a dozen former Iranian officials in June, a move that Iranian officials viewed as a victory.

Iran even claimed that 1,000 more sanctions will soon be lifted, which the U.S. State Department spokesman denied. Days later, it was reported that the Biden administration might remove what it considers symbolic sanctions on Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

The relief comes as Iran faces new internal pressures. Severe water shortages have triggered six days of massive anti-government protests, including chants of "Death to [Ayatollah] Khamenei."

As diplomacy continues, Iran is not relenting in pursuing its violent objectives. U.S. troops in Syria were shelled by Iranian rocket fire following U.S. airstrikes on Iranian-backed militias. While U.S. forces responded to the attacks, it was not enough to stop six reprisal attacks by Iranian-backed militias in Iraq and Syria this month alone. "President Biden must put forward a real strategy for deterring and ending these attacks, rather than continuing his bare-minimum, tit-for-tat approach that is failing to deter Iran or its militias and puts American lives at increased risk, said U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council on Tuesday rejected a new draft nuclear agreement because it was incompatible with legislation passed by Iran's parliament last December. That law prohibits the country from dropping below 20 percent enriched uranium, which would not be allowed in any negotiated nuclear deal.

"The committee formed at the SNSC which was responsible for comparing the draft with the law passed by the parliament in December has decided that it is incompatible with the law," said Ali Rabiei, spokesman for outgoing Iranian President Ali Rouhani.

In 2015, Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with the United States, France, the United Kingdom, China, Russia and Germany. It lifted some sanctions on the Iranian government in exchange for restricting the amount of enriched uranium stockpiles Iran could maintain.

Since then, Iran ratcheted up its expansionist plans in the Middle East, underwriting terrorist groups and even assassinating dissidents in Western countries.

Those aggressive international terrorist operations continue. Four Iranian nationals were charged in New York July 14 with attempting to kidnap American journalist Masih Alinejad and take her to Iran. The plot began in 2018, the indictment says. Alinejad is a critic of the tyrannical Iranian regime. The plot was foiled by the FBI.

Iranian state agents reportedly are intensifying social media campaigns to sow discord among Americans, pushing anti-Semitic messages such as "Hitler was right," and "kill all Jews."

The 2015 JCPOA clearly benefited Iran, freeing up money to expand its Middle East hegemony.

In Lebanon, Hizballah continues to use force to expand its influence on state politics. Backed by $700 million in annual Iranian financing, Hizballah has become Lebanon's most influential political player.

In Iraq, the Popular Mobilization Forces PMF, which was allegedly formed to curb ISIS's rapid expansion in 2014, has become an Iranian proxy, committing atrocities and assassinating citizens. Iraqi authorities arrested PMF commander Qasem Muslah in May, charging him in connection with the assassinations of pro-democracy activists.

Since winning the election as Iran's new president last month, hardliner Ebrahim Raisi has said that he will not negotiate over Iran's missile program or meet with Biden, even if both sides agreed on terms to revive the JCPOA. No one has proposed such a meeting, but it is a sign that Iran's hardline policies are not going to change.

Raisi also told a news conference that "Saudi Arabia and its allies should immediately stop their interference in Yemen," but said nothing about withdrawing its financial and military support for the Houthis. The Houthis are Shia rebels who seized Yemen's capital in 2014, prompting Saudi Arabia to intervene in support of the Yemeni government and army.

Houthi rebels can reach Saudi cities and targets by ballistic missiles and drones, as evidenced by the April drone attack targeting the King Khalid air base and Saudi oil company Aramco.

The fighting in Yemen has killed more than 230,000 people and sparked a humanitarian crisis.

While Iran's economy struggles, its support for terrorist groups continues. Despite May's Gaza war, Hamas has enough Iranian money to continue its operations, said Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar. "All the thanks to the Islamic Republic of Iran, which never spared any expenses on us or other Palestinian factions, Sinwar said in a May 30 news conference. "They provided us with money, arms and expertise." Hamas will "scorch the earth," he threatened, if Gaza's problems are not solved.

Threats of annihilation are consistent with Hamas's founding charter. But they also match Iran's repeated goal. Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad described Israel in 2005 as a "disgraceful blot" that should be "wiped off the face of the earth."

In 2017, Iranian authorities installed a doomsday clock, ticking toward 2040, the year Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei predicted Israel would be destroyed. But in a sign of Iran's misplaced priorities, the clock stopped working earlier this month due to power shortages in the country.

"Our strategy is to erase Israel from the global political map. And it seems that considering the evil that Israel is doing, it is bringing itself closer to that," Brigadier General Hossein Salami said in 2019.

The JCPOA enabled Iran, one of the world's biggest oil exporters, to expand its sales. But those exports dropped from 2.5 million barrels per day to 2 million barrels after the U.S. withdrew from the deal in 2018. Iranian exports increased significantly recently despite the current sanctions, and are poised to increase further if the sanctions are lifted.

"We set the highest record of exports of refined products in the history of the oil industry during the embargo period," said Iranian oil minister Bijan Zangeneh. "If the sanctions are lifted, we will return to the market stronger than before, and faster than expected."

In the meantime, Iran is closer to producing its first nuclear bomb now. The State Department announced last week that it would waive sanctions on billions of dollars in Iranian oil trade so the Islamic Republic could "transfer of Iranian funds in restricted accounts to exporters in Japan and the Republic of Korea."

For the past six months, the Biden administration has been sending messages that it intends to deescalate the situation with Iran, but Iranian officials interpret them as a sign of weakness. Iranian Revolutionary Guard intelligence chief Hussein Taeb last week urged an escalation in attacks against U.S. forces in Iraq.

"History has repeatedly proven that appeasement will only embolden and empower a rogue state. But the Biden administration and the EU appear determined to pursue this dangerous policy with a regime that is a top state sponsor of terrorism, according to the US State Department, and a leading human rights violator," wrote Iranian-American political scientist Majid Rafizadeh in the Arab News.

Reports indicate the Biden administration is trying to wrap up the deal before Raisi takes office next month. Once he's in, the thinking goes, chances for any agreement plummet.

"Khamenei's objective for installing Raisi is to confront popular uprisings and to gain the latitude he needs for the nuclear and missile programs, as well as for regional warmongering," said Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi July 10 at the annual Free Iran World Summit.

Iran is technically capable of enriching uranium to weapons-grade should it choose so, said outgoing Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. After six rounds of talks in Vienna, an agreement still seems far away.

In spite of President Biden's declaration that Iran will not acquire nuclear weapons on his watch, it is becoming clearer that the current U.S. administration has no tangible plan to counter or deal with the Iranian threat to the Middle East and U.S. interests in it, and is simply improvising. Accordingly, if the Iranian regime is capable of creating all the above-mentioned havoc while still under U.S. sanctions, how much worse will it behave when these are sanctions lifted?

Missouri Teachers Plotted With CRT Advocate To Hide Radical Teaching

BY RICK MORAN

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2021/07/22/missouri-teachers-plotted-with-crt-advocate-to-hide-radical-teaching-from-parents-n1463953;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

In the Francis Howell School District about 35 miles west of St. Louis, Missouri, teachers met in September 2020 to determine the curriculum the students would follow for the coming year. Advising them was equity consultant LaGarrett J. King, an associate professor of social studies education at the University of Missouri.

In addition to discussing the curriculum, King tried to impress on the teachers the importance of teaching history the “right way.”

“This is not a safe space,” but rather a ‘racialized space,’” King said. “In many ways, a safe space is a space where white people tell us how not racist they are. And this is not that space.”

A video of the curriculum planning session surfaced on Rumble and was submitted by “wokeatfhsd,” who offered this description of the video.

Watch supporters of the proposed Black History course in the Francis Howell School District (in St Charles County, MO) present their sanitized sales pitches in public. Then go behind the scenes to see how Dr. King, their consultant (paid $15K by the district), sets them up to write a Critical Theory based history curriculum and hide it from parents. Finally, there are several minutes of questions asked by teachers and counselors in the district (answered by Dr. King) as they attempt to plan how to bypass parent concerns and hide the content of the curriculum in a push for social justice. This video is clipped from the full presentation for the sake of time, but the intent and meaning of speakers’ comments has not been changed.

NRO’s Ryan Mills offered some insights into King’s thinking. It’s not pretty.

King said “the first thing we have to understand is that our social studies and our history curriculum is political and racist,” and “there is no such thing as neutral history.” He then asked the team members to question whether they are developing black history curriculums through the historical lens of the oppressor. “We have made those who have oppressed people, the oppressor, we have humanized them,” he said.

The nation’s founding “means nothing to black people,” he said, calling history “psychologically violent” but one-sided. He also seemed to justify violence in the name of racial justice.

“All of our wars were about freedom, violence,” King said. “But yet, when black people say, ‘Hey … we need to take over, man. We need to burn this place down, we need to do this, we need to do that.’ ‘Oh no, you should do non-violence to achieve freedom.’ It’s silly. It’s prejudice.”

Would you want this man developing curricula for your kids?

One white teacher on the call said she had been teaching about white privilege for a decade.

“Kids are way more open,” she said, “but then they go home and they tell their parents, and then their parents get upset. I don’t advertise to my students when I’m teaching U.S. history that sometimes I would consider myself the anti-U.S. history teacher.”

Well…if the shoe fits…

Another white teacher said, “Sometimes I think we have deferred to letting that stop progress. We let noise keep progress from moving forward.”

All that “noise” from nosey parents. They should just sit down, shut up, and let us brainwash their kids in peace!

While the district’s teachers have privately discussed their efforts teach students through a decidedly progressive social justice lens, school leaders have publicly denied this is occurring. At a recent school board meeting, superintendent Nathan Hoven said the district has not adopted critical race theory into the framework of its curriculum. “We are not and have no interest in advancing any political agenda,” he said.

“While we support the work and many of Dr. King’s contributions, we vehemently disagree with any suggestions that teachers or staff hide the work we’re doing from parents and taxpayers,” the district told National Review in a statement provided by spokeswoman Jennifer Jolls. “We always strive to make decisions that we believe are in the best interests of students, and do so in a way that is transparent and accessible to all stakeholders.”

This is happening all over the country. It’s by no means a “conspiracy” in the traditional sense of the word. It’s Orwell’s “groupthink.” The symptoms of groupthink, identified by psychologist Irving Janis, match the madness in the desire to teach CRT.

Type I: Overestimations of the group — its power and morality

  • Illusions of invulnerability creating excessive optimism and encouraging risk-taking.
  • Unquestioned belief in the morality of the group, causing members to ignore the consequences of their actions.

Type II: Closed-mindedness

  • Rationalizing warnings that might challenge the group’s assumptions.
  • Stereotyping those who are opposed to the group as weak, evil, biased, spiteful, impotent, or stupid.

Type III: Pressures toward uniformity

  • Self-censorship of ideas that deviate from the apparent group consensus.
  • Illusions of unanimity among group members, silence is viewed as agreement.
  • Direct pressure to conform placed on any member who questions the group, couched in terms of “disloyalty”
  • Mindguards— self-appointed members who shield the group from dissenting information.

See anyone we know?

It’s apparent that, because the movement to teach this ideology is nationwide, only parents can stop it. Informed and concerned parents are the only ones who can save their children from being indoctrinated with these rancid ideas.

 

Border Invasion Continues. Agents Have Caught More Than 1 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS Since October 1

Border Invasion Continues. Agents Have Caught More Than 1M Since October 1

BY R.CORT KIRKWOOD

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/border-invasion-continues-agents-have-caught-more-than-1m-since-october-1/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

U.S. border agents have apprehended more than one million illegal aliens at the border with Mexico since October 1, the beginning of the fiscal year, and are on track to apprehend at least an additional 550,000 if the June daily rate of apprehensions continues.

The latest monthly total of apprehensions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported, jumped 4.5 percent from last month to almost 190,000. As well, the number of criminals apprehended jumped 13.2 percent to almost 8,000 on the fiscal year.

If anything is clear about the crisis at the border, it’s this: Joe Biden and his leftist subalterns are trying to alter the demographics of the country by swamping it with the poor of Latin America in the hope they will become Democrat voters.

Invasion Continues

The latest shocking figure from the southwest frontier with Mexico and ports of entry followed May’s relatively small increase from April. Agents apprehended 188,829 illegals in June, up from 180,641 in May. In April, agents apprehended 178,850.

Monthly apprehensions zoomed almost the minute Biden took office and ordered federal immigration authorities to open the borders. In January, President Trump’s last month in office, agents caught 78,442 illegals. 


In February, they caught 101,095, a 28.9-percent increase.

The difference from October is even more stark. Apprehensions were 72,115. 

Some 63 percent of June’s apprehensions were, as usual, single adults: 117,602. Another 55,805, about 30 percent, were in so-called families.

Agents caught 178,416 trying to jump the border; they stopped the rest at ports of entry.

Totals This Year

The total apprehended thus far this year is staggering: 1,119,204; 1,076,242, or 96.2 percent, jumped the border.

The size of the Camp of the Saints invasion and the task facing border agents becomes even more incomprehensible in looking at daily and hourly figures:

  • For June: 6,294 per day; 262 per hour;
  • Fiscal 2021 through June: 6,183 per day; 258 per hour.

Should June’s rate continue through September, agents will catch another 579,048 by September 30, the last day of fiscal 2021. Total apprehensions will be almost 1.7 million.

That figure is slightly less than the population of West Virginia, and about equal to the population of Phoenix, Arizona, the fifth-largest city in the country.

If the lower rate for the nine months of the fiscal year holds, agents will apprehend another 568,836. The total for the year will be about the same. In 12 months, agents will have arrested the equivalent of every living soul in Phoenix or West Virginia.

Border authorities have no reason to believe the flow will stop.

Criminals Apprehended

Not surprisingly, agents have their hands full not just with jobless “migrants.” Criminals keep coming, too.

CPB reports that agents caught 7,830 thieves, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, drunk drivers, and others who came to do the jobs Americans won’t do.

  • Assault, battery, domestic violence: 881
  • Burglary, robbery, larceny, theft, fraud: 612
  • Driving under the influence: 1,250
  • Homicide, manslaughter: 46
  • Illegal drug possession, trafficking: 1,593
  • Illegal entry, re-entry: 4,378
  • Illegal weapons possession, transport, trafficking: 246
  • Sexual offenses: 393
  • Other: 2,049
As of May, agents had apprehended 6,918 criminal illegals. This year’s total of criminal illegals is already 221-percent more than last year’s 2,438.

Agents are catching about 870 per month. If that pace continues, they’ll have to deal with another 2,610 criminals for a total of 10,440 on the year.

Biden has done nothing to stanch the invasion and is, frighteningly, flying illegals around the country and dumping them into unsuspecting communities. How many are criminals Biden cannot know. And even if he could, he wouldn’t care.

He decided months ago not to deport dangerous criminal illegals.

Jen Psaki: ‘We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking’~Surgeon General MURTHY: ‘Misinformation’ Poses ‘Imminent and Insidious Threat’

Rumble — White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on July 15: "We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team," Psaki said. "We've increased disinformation research and tracking within the surgeon general's office," Psaki said. "We're flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation. We're working with doctors and medical professionals to connect medical experts who are popular with our audiences with accurate information and boost trusted content—so we are helping get trusted content out there."

Jen Psaki defending action to journalist Peter Doocy on July 16:

"There’s no secret list, I will tell you that these are people who were sharing information on public platforms on Facebook. Information that is traveling is inaccurate. Our biggest concern here — and I frankly think it should be your biggest concern — is the number of people who are dying around the country because they’re getting misinformation that is leading them to not take a vaccine,” Psaki deflected.

Peter Doocy asked about people being concerned that the govt was scrutinizing their posts

“They’re more concerned about that than people dying across the country because of a pandemic where misinformation is traveling on social media platforms? That feels unlikely me. If you have the data to back that up, I’m happy to discuss it,” Psaki added.

What is the data that show people died because they read a Facebook post?

Rumble — Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Surgeon General Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, July 15, 2021

"Today, I issued a Surgeon General’s Advisory on the dangers of health misinformation. Surgeon General Advisories are reserved for urgent public health threats. And while those threats have often been related to what we eat, drink, and smoke, today we live in a world where misinformation poses an imminent and insidious threat to our nation’s health."

War on Free Speech: Indivisible Trains Digital Army to Target ‘Right-Wing Disinformation’

“…thousands of volunteers are getting the training and the tools they need to shift the narratives in their own communities.”

The subversive left-wing group Indivisible is hyping a “massive” effort deceptively called the “Truth Brigade”. Ironically, the idea of the “Truth Brigade” is to unleash an army of trained activists posing as regular social media users to “counter right disinformation”.

The speech-suppressing campaign comes as no surprise to RAIR Foundation USA, who has been sounding the alarm of the left’s ongoing obsession with “de-platforming” Americans or censoring ideas that counter their narrative.

According to a statement on Indivisible’s website, the initiative began as “a pilot program ahead of the 2020 election.” Participants in the program learn how to respond to wrongthink by “training on how to write compelling, positive, persuasive messages in their own voices on a given issue, using tested techniques.”

According to the email, “…every two weeks, volunteers receive careful explainers about the latest issues and work on a campaign tailored to push back against messaging trends from bad actors.”

“The Truth Brigade is our answer to the right-wing disinformation machine,” Indivisible, a “Partner” of Hillary Clinton’s “Onward Together,” tells their supporters in an email dated July 16, 2021.

The email continues:

“Research shows that one of the best ways to counter disinformation is through interactions with real people in your network — so thousands of volunteers are getting the training and the tools they need to shift the narratives in their own communities.”

Imagine if heavily-funded leftist activists such as Indivisible were forced to actually defend their own positions?

Here is the text of their email:

Big news! We recently publicly launched a massive volunteer program to counter right-wing disinformation: the Truth Brigade. You may have seen this campaign featured in the Washington PostForbes, and other outlets — we’ve been running a pilot program for several months that has already engaged 4,750 people, driving posts that together generated over 82 million impressions on social media.

Now, because the stakes are so high, we’re taking this plan public and expanding even further, as the right-wing continues their crusade to poison the discourse and undermine our democracy. Read on for more details, or click here to fund all the support we’re giving to this crucial team and all the rest of our work for a more democratic future.

How does the Truth Brigade work?

The Truth Brigade is our answer to the right-wing disinformation machine. Research shows that one of the best ways to counter disinformation is through interactions with real people in your network — so thousands of volunteers are getting the training and the tools they need to shift the narratives in their own communities.

We provide resources on best practices, from how to structure messages to understanding how social media amplifies lies. Then, every two weeks, volunteers receive careful explainers about the latest issues and work on a campaign tailored to push back against messaging trends from bad actors. And leaders are constantly evaluating success to build more effective campaigns.

Just like all our work, it’s guided by experts who monitor right-wing circles, follow the spread of disinformation, and build tested tactics to fight back. And it’s powered by real volunteers, channeling their anger into action to protect our democracy.

How can I help?

As the Truth Brigade keeps expanding and taking on ever-bigger enemies, we’re still pitching in the resources it takes to make sure everyone is ready to fight disinformation. That means our organizers, social media experts, and policy specialists are working with volunteers all the time. It means we’re keeping our own digital tools up to date and staying aware of changes in social media trends. And it means we’re always monitoring the latest messaging from the right-wing and how disinformation is spreading.

This is just one part of how we’re working to protect our democracy and counter the onslaught of bad-faith right-wing talking points. And all this work relies on grassroots funding to make it possible. You can help us keep it going by donating $10 to support the Truth Brigade, resist the right-wing agenda, and fund all our work.

Programs like the Truth Brigade are exactly what this movement has always been about — from employing best practices in pressuring elected officials to best practices in countering disinformation, Indivisibles show time and time again that you’re ready to fight the fights that matter. Your support is what makes it all happen — thank you.

In solidarity,

Middle school LGBT indoctrination causes a sister and brother to BOTH declare themselves to be “transgender.” Their parents are livid. MassResistance helps community fight back!

School kept parents in the dark - until an honest teacher informed them.

Pressure brings VICTORY - a big resignation!

Part 8 of a series (See Parts 1-7 here.)

July 18, 2021
ALT TEXT
Parents found out that teachers had re-named their daughter "Raymond" and had given her "awards" for her transgender behavior.

In our previous post we described the stomach-turning “transgender” indoctrination that children at Baird Middle School in Ludlow, Massachusetts were being put through. It was a coordinated effort by the librarian, guidance counselors, and teaching staff – and fully supported by the Principal, Superintendent, and even the Ludlow School Board. Sadly, it was successful with several of the children, particularly those who were especially vulnerable because of emotional problems or a troubled home life.

How bad was it? On Feb. 28, 2021, a 12-year old girl at Baird Middle School sent this email to several teachers and other staff members. (Read it carefully…)

Hello everyone,

If you are reading this you are either my teacher or guidance counselor. I have an announcement to make and I trust you guys with this information. I am genderqueer. Basically, it means I use any pronouns (other than it/its). This also means I have a name change. My new name will be Raymond, Please call me by that name. If you deadname me or use any pronouns I am not comfortable with I will politely tell you. I am telling you this because I feel like I can trust you. A list of pronouns you can use are: she/her he/him they/them fae/faer ae/aer ve/ver xe/xem ze/zir. I have added a link so you can look at how to say them. Please only use the ones I have listed and not the other ons. I do not like them.

Thank you for your time,
Raymond [Last name]

Here’s what the email looked like as the school staff received it:

ALT TEXT

What 12-year-old girl writes like that? Or uses bizarre terms like “genderqueer,” “deadname,” or that absurd list of “pronouns” (especially to describe herself)? There can be no question that some LGBT-activist adult in the school was heavily coaching her. And they were all clearly keeping this from her parents.

But it was worse than that. Several weeks earlier her 13-year-old brother, also a student at Baird, decided that he was “really” a girl - the school had been calling him by a girl’s name. The school administration purposefully kept all this information from their parents.

It finally gets exposed!

In our earlier posts we described Bonnie, a principled Social Studies teacher at Baird who prioritizes the well-being of students over any adult agendas. Bonnie raised the alarm over the sexually graphic and explicit books being given to the children to read.

When Bonnie saw what was going on with the brother and sister, she was very upset that the parents weren’t being informed. So she called them to let them know, which they greatly appreciated. They were livid that the school officials were hiding this from them. Bonnie – who grew up in Ludlow and knows many people in the community – also got in touch with other Baird parents and let them know what was happening.

MassResistance gets involved!

Over the previous several months, a parents’ group had formed in Ludlow in reaction to the sexually explicit books. On several occasions, they had gone to School Board meetings to testify but were generally ignored by the Board members and harassed by local leftists. Following this “gender transition” news, the group gained strength. The parents of the two children (mentioned above) became active members. Now the group needed to take action.

Finally, in late March, several members of the group asked MassResistance to get involved, and we jumped right in. We held regular meetings with them. We encouraged them to fight even harder - and not be discouraged.

Among other things, MassResistance put together a strong, informative flyer for the parents to distribute all over town. The flyer described exactly what was going on and who was doing it. It gave the contact information for the School Board. We demanded that the perpetrators be fired!

MassResistance put together a strong flyer, and parents leafletted the town with it. The outrage spread quickly!

Even though the COVID rules allowed the schools to be “remote” and the School Board to hold only closed Zoom meetings instead of allowing the public to show up, the school officials were feeling the heat from the community. As people in town became aware of the horrors in their middle school, they became quite angry. We helped the parents’ group keep up the relentless pressure!

The parents meet with the Superintendent – and MassResistance attends!

The parents of the two “transgender” children kept asking for a meeting with the Principal but continued to be rebuffed. But they were persistent. Finally, in mid-April, the Superintendent agreed to meet with them – via Zoom.

The parents asked Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, to join them at the meeting. That choice worked out well for them.

At the meeting, the Superintendent brought a school “compliance” expert. She brought up the Massachusetts Department of Education’s official policies on gender identity. She informed the parents, very matter-of-factly, that these describe very clearly how schools should deal with those issues. Everything the schools are doing, she explained, including keeping the information from parents if the student wishes, is in line with that document.

Then Camenker replied. He said he is very familiar with that document. He informed her that he was at the meeting back in 2013 when the State Board of Education formally approved it.

See these MassResistance reports (and video) from 2013:

MassResistance addresses State Board of Education meeting over directive to force transgenderism in schools  (SEE VIDEO of our strong testimony) 3-1-2013

Did State Board of Education use document from radical transgender group to draft their directive for state's schools?  3-1-2013

Camenker informed her that the “gender identity” policy document is simply a guide for schools. It is not state law or even a regulation. School districts have no legal obligation to follow any of it. And in fact, he said, it was extremely controversial when the State Board of Education approved it. Moreover, Camenker told the Superintendent, the whole concept of “gender identity” is medical quackery and a lunatic political ideology. The Superintendent said, “Well, that’s your opinion.” Camenker replied, “No, that’s fact.”

The meeting ended with the parents demanding that the schools stop calling their children by any names but their given names and that no one be allowed to discuss any “gender identity” subject with them whatsoever. The Superintendent was clearly agitated and did not respond one way or the other. That was a big step down from his arrogance at the beginning of the meeting, (when he declared he could do what he wanted since the law “allowed” it).

the arrogant attitude (that he could do what he wanted since the law “allowed” it) he had when the meeting began.

A victory - the librarian resigns!

With MassResistance’s help and guidance, the parents continued to leaflet the town and pound away at the school officials.

A few weeks later it was revealed that the weird, cross-dressing librarian who had instigated so much trouble had handed in her resignation. It was clear that the pressure from across town was having an effect on the school.

This was definitely a huge victory. But the graphic sexually explicit books and horrible transgender propaganda was an ongoing problem in the school – and still had to be stopped.

There was more controversy – and vicious battling – to come. We will report on that in our next installment.

What Should You Do If a “Vaccine Strike Force” Knocks on Your Door?~Senator Rand Paul Says Don’t Answer~Kathleen Sebelius wants “medical apartheid” implemented

Sen. Paul to door-knocking vaccinators: ‘Don’t come knocking on my door’

Kathleen Sebelius wants you to be separated from your children if you refuse to get “vaccinated” for covid

BY ETHAN HUFF

SEE: https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-07-16-kathleen-sebelius-separated-children-refuse-vaccinated-covid.html;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) The former head of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Barack Hussein Obama is pushing the narrative that parents who refuse Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” should be forcibly separated from their children and denied employment.

Kathleen Sebelius spoke with CNN the other day to explain how she believes that full medical fascism is the only way to bring about a “new normal” in which the only people in America who are afforded rights under the Constitution are those who agree to roll up their sleeves and get injected for Chinese Germs.

“We’re in a situation where we have a wildly effective vaccine, multiple choices, lots available, free of charge, and we have folks who are just saying I won’t do it,” Sebelius complained during the “OutFront” segment.

“I think that it’s time to say to those folks, it’s fine if you don’t choose to get vaccinated. You may not come to work. You may not have access to a situation where you’re going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy. Where you might kill them, or you might put them in a situation where they’re going to carry the virus to someone in a high-risk position.”

Since the vaccines apparently do not work, those who foolishly took them are now living in even more fear over a dreaded “variant” like the “Indian delta” strain taking over their bodies and killing them. This is why they are now lashing out like wild hyenas against other human beings who chose to leave their bodies and immune systems alone.

Sebelius is one such hyena who wants to deny everyone who just said no to experimental drugs from Tony Fauci, and the government access to their children, jobs and society in general. Everyone who decides to live their lives as nature intended must be locked away at home forever, Sebelius insists.

“That’s, I think the point where we are, freedom is one thing, but freedom when you harm others like secondhand smoke and issues that we’ve dealt with very clearly in the past — you can’t drive drunk,” Sebelius further stated, comparing unvaccinated people to drunk drivers.

“You can drink, but you can’t drive drunk because you can injure other people. You can’t smoke inside of a public place where you can give cancer to someone else in spite of their never having been a smoker.”

Democrats like Kathleen Sebelius are chomping at the bit for medical apartheid

Should Sebelius get her way, there will soon be two Americas: One in which all vaccinated people are allowed to live their lives as normal, and another where all unvaccinated people are treated like second-class citizens – medical apartheid that only deranged fascists like Sebelius could ever think is normal or acceptable.

“So, I think we’re reaching that point in the United States where those of us who are vaccinated, I want to take off my mask,” Sebelius went on to complain.

“I want to be able to live my life with vaccination, and right now, I’m being impinged on by people who say I don’t want to get vaccinated. It’s fine. I want them to maybe have a limitation on where they can go and who they can possibly infect.”

CNN of course closed out the segment by thanking Sebelius for her “wisdom,” apparently endorsing her particular brand of medical fascism. We now know what CNN plans to impose upon us all if it gets its way in the coming months.

Health Ranger exposes planned takedown of America, ending in martial law, halted elections and Holocaust-level mass extermination via spike protein injections

BY MIKE ADAMS

SEE: https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-07-16-health-ranger-exposes-planned-takedown-of-america-ending-in-military-martial-law.html;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

(Natural News) A nefarious plan is underway to place America under a military dictatorship, halt the mid-term elections and unleash armed soldiers to go door-to-door, confiscating guns and forcing vaccines on the American people to achieve Holocaust-level mass extermination.

That plan follows a specific series of events that all orbit around the concept of “planned chaos.” The steps to achieve this chaos are already well underway.

The more chaos the anti-American Marxists can unleash, the more they can assert power and control over the nation to achieve their ultimate goal: The mass extermination of hundreds of millions of Americans and the complete takedown of the United States of America as a sovereign nation.

How the anti-American globalists hope their plan will unfold

High-level officials in the Pentagon (Gen. Milley, Gen. Austin, etc.) are all-in with this plan, as are Biden regime officials who answer to the CCP. The corporate media is pushing all the required narratives (race hatred, anti-white bigotry, covid hysteria, etc.) in order to create the necessary mental state that can be triggered into an eruption like what we’re seeing right now in South Africa.

In today’s Situation Update, below, I walk through the steps of this plan and how they plan to achieve all this within the next 18 months.

Some of the highlights of this plan:

  • Pushing mandatory vaccines for workers at critical infrastructure installations in order to achieve a mass die-off, resulting in failed power plants, water plants, food production, transportation, first responders and other elements that keep society functioning.
  • Why, according to doctors who are spreading the alarm, we may already be looking at 92 million dead Americans in the next few years, stemming from vaccine-induced vascular and neurological damage (micro blood clots, heart failure, etc.).
  • How vaccines perpetuate the pandemic by making people more vulnerable to infections from covid variants (such as Delta). New research shows that natural immunity halts the pandemic, but vaccines keep it going.
  • Once critical infrastructure is taken down, America’s cities fall into anarchy, with widespread looting, murder, rape and total chaos. The police will be powerless to stop it. Democrats defunded the police as part of the plan to roll this out.
  • Many cities will become “death traps” without food, water, fuel or electrical power. Very quickly, a mass exodus of violent looters will stream out of the cities, ransacking suburbs and rural areas in search of food and shelter. As we see in South Africa, these violent looters can only be stopped through the application of coordinated civilian firepower.
  • Rural communities will need to rely on civilian security forces working hand-in-hand with local law enforcement (Sheriff’s offices, typically) to engage and halt the violent looting mobs, most of which will consist of individuals who have been brain damaged by micro blood clots caused by covid vaccines. The zombie apocalypse is about to become reality.
  • As this chaos is intentionally unleashed, the illegitimate Biden regime will illegally deploy U.S. troops against the American people while suspending the U.S. Constitution by decree, then confiscating firearms from any civilians they can manage to threaten. This will of course result in fierce resistance across the USA, and probably a civil war inside the military itself.
  • Upon the urging of the CCP, Biden will call for UN “humanitarian missions” to allow communist Chinese PLA troops to physically invade and occupy the United States, claiming to be distributing food. In reality, this is the invasion of America that Obama has long planned and will be carried out by proxy, through Biden who is both a puppet of Obama and of China. (Communist Chinese forces will enter the U.S. by land, through both the Southern and Northern borders.)
  • As these efforts ramp up, states and entire regions will push for secession from the failed federal government, and this will set off extreme conflict between the anti-American Biden criminals in D.C. vs. the pro-America states like Texas, Florida, Arizona and others.

People who wish to survive all this must plan for the following reality to occur. Those who fail to plan may find themselves dead:

  • Extended power grid failures, perhaps lasting up to a year in certain areas. Note that cryptocurrencies will be useless in this scenario, so have additional backup plans in place for physical assets (such as silver).
  • The total collapse of food deliveries to local grocery stores. Emergency food supplies must be able to sustain you for a year or more.
  • The complete wipeout of ammunition supplies, firearms and gun parts. You will have to survive on what you already have.
  • The unleashing of the U.S. military against the American people in an act of total betrayal and treason against the United States of America.
  • The timed, engineered collapse of the fiat currency debt bomb, which will instantly halt all food stamps and financial transactions, plunging America into Third World status almost overnight. Those left holding useless cash will see their savings completely wiped out. The dollar’s demise will be timed to achieve the maximum chaos effect.
  • The attempted total takedown of the internet, with exceptions being granted to certain controlled websites that are deemed “essential” such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and other platforms controlled by globalists and the CCP. With the power grid down in many areas, internet access will be pointless for most people.
  • The shutdown of all financial transactions and banking operations, for some amount of time, to worsen the collapse. This means there will be no functioning method to purchase food, fuel, parts, services, etc. Locally, the economy will revert to barter and precious metals.
  • The rise of demonic entities taking physical form as Satan’s war against humanity shifts into his “end game” configuration. Skinwalkers, demons, demonic possession and other similar phenomena will become commonplace. This is ultimately a supernatural war.

Will the globalists succeed in all this?

If their current course is not stopped, then YES, all this will come true. If they can be stopped soon, much of this can be averted, but there currently seems to be a near-zero willingness by anyone in a position of power to sound the alarm and halt this genocidal war on humanity that has already been unleashed.

This is not a drill. Prepare not for the worst chapter of human history to unfold over the next 18 months or so unless the Biden / Fauci fascists can be stopped.

(Natural News) Just to show, again, how wealthy, powerful, and out of control the major social media platforms have gotten, YouTube has now assumed the right to censor — yes, censor — city council meetings if the speech Nazis who work there don’t like what’s being said.

A North Carolina county board of commissioners is ripping Google-owned YouTube and pushing back hard legally after the platform took it upon itself to delete one of the board’s videos, allegedly for violating its “terms of service” as they pertain to medical ‘misinformation.’

A Henderson County Board of Commissioners meeting from June 16 was removed by the platform, which led members to call an emergency meeting two days later. At the emergency meeting, commissioners ordered their staffers to find other platforms that can host their meetings without being censored, as well as find alternatives to all Google products. That would include nearly $400,000 earmarked for Google Chromebooks for the county’s public schools, The Epoch Times added.

“We aren’t going to buy Google products whenever we have a choice,” Board of Commissioner Chairman William Lapsley told The Epoch Times.

During the public commentary period at the June 16 meeting, a number of people asked commissioners not to spend taxpayer money to help the state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, pay for COVID-19 vaccine incentives. They include separate $1 million cash drawings, $25 gift cash cards, and funding for billboards and other signage. In fact, those incentives are not funded locally by taxpayers but rather by federal taxpayers; the money comes from the $1.9 trillion ‘relief’ measure Democrats passed in March.

Citizens who want to speak have three minutes to address their concerns to the commissioners, Lapsley said, “as long as they keep it civil.”

But that’s not a direct dialogue with commissioners themselves, he stressed.

“It’s just an opportunity for anybody to tell the commissioners what’s on their mind,” Lapsley explained.

For a number of years, the county commission staff has uploaded videos of meetings to YouTube where they would remain for 90 days.

“We posted the video as we normally do, and within about two hours we got an email from YouTube telling us that the video has been taken down because of misinformation,” Lapsley said.

That left commissioners confused, so staff appealed the decision to YouTube and within an hour heard back from the platform’s editorial staff informing them the video would remain offline.

But–why?

In a statement to The Epoch Times, YouTube noted: “Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we established clear policies to prevent the spread of misinformation that could lead to real-world harm. While we welcome open debate and discussion about the COVID-19 vaccines on our platform, we don’t allow content that includes claims the vaccines have killed thousands of people, and as such we removed a video from the Henderson County Board of Commissioners’ channel.”

None of the 12 citizens who spoke to commissioners at the June 16 meeting said anything about COVID vaccines killing thousands of people. Rather, each of the 12 spoke out against COVID jab programs “targeting massive groups of people” based on what they believe are “suppressed facts.”

But this is 2021, and the big tech platforms rule now; free speech is by invitation and permission only, while debating information and offering up alternative facts that don’t match the official narratives are not permitted. It’s like big tech platforms are the modern equivalent of England’s King George.

In response, Lapsley tried to claim that YouTube, as a ‘private entity,’ can do what it wants; but really, can it? Morally and legally and constitutionally?

“However, we feel that by posting our local government video in the past, they were providing a ‘public space’ for their customers to exercise their individual right to free speech,” Lapsley told The Epoch Times

“Obviously, they are now censoring the free speech of our county citizens by their action of taking down the county video of a public meeting—this presents a dangerous precedent that this branch of local government will not support,” he added.

That’s good. Until more Americans do this — say no to big tech censorship — it’s just going to get worse.

Biden DHS Official: Americans Trying to Preserve Their Heritage ‘Makes Me Sick’

Does this sound like someone interested in "securing our homeland"?

by Chris Menahan | Information Liberation

SEE: https://www.infowars.com/posts/biden-dhs-official-americans-trying-to-preserve-their-heritage-makes-me-sick/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Samantha Vinograd, the Department of Homeland Security’s new acting assistant secretary for counterterrorism and threat prevention in the Office of Strategy, Policy and Plans is a former CNN analyst who said the idea of Americans trying to preserve their heritage makes her “sick.”

While appearing on CNN in March 2019, Vinograd slammed President Trump for giving a speech at CPAC about the importance of preserving our heritage. 

“His statement makes me sick, on a personal level,” Vinograd said. “Preserving your heritage, reclaiming our heritage, that sounds a lot like a certain leader that killed members of my family and about six million other Jews in the 1940s.”

“But our national security level, the president talks about preserving our heritage as a catch-all for implementing policies that misallocate resources,” Vinograd continued. “He pretends there are massive flows of illegal immigrants coming over our borders and spending billions of dollars on a border wall emergency instead of paying attention to real national security threats. He sounds a lot like despotic leaders who talked about white heritage and white nationalism around the world and putting resources in the wrong place and pretending there are foreign people trying to influence our country in a way that just isn’t accurate.”

WATCH:

Vinograd cares deeply about preserving her own heritage as she noted in a 2017 article in Marie Claire where she railed against Trump’s travel ban and blamed America for the Nazis killing her family in the Holocaust:

As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I know far too much about what closing borders to refugees means. And as a four-year veteran of the White House National Security Council, I know about how to make policies that keep us safe from real threats, not imaginary ones. I also know that the amateur policy-making behind the misguided Executive Order that President Trump signed on Friday—which was, let’s not forget, International Holocaust Remembrance Day—will not make us safer. It will actually make us less secure.

[…] I am alive today because my father survived the Holocaust by hiding on a farm and joining the French resistance. His whole family—and about 6 million other Jews—did not survive. The United States could have helped by offering sanctuary, but chose not to let in as many Jewish refugees as it could. We even turned back a ship of refugees docked right by our coast—so close they could see the lights of Florida—and sent them back to Europe and the Nazi killing machine.

The Executive Order that President Trump signed on Friday would similarly abandon refugees to persecution, and in some cases death. My father did not survive the Holocaust for this.

Owen reacts to the big lie that General Milley has just caught himself in.

Vinograd will be working together with DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and DHS’s top counterterrorism official, John Cohen, on “counterterrorism” and “threat prevention,” aka labeling the American people as “terrorists” in order to strip them of all their rights.

From Politico last week:

The Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence arm is getting new leadership.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Friday morning that John Cohen, the department’s top counterterrorism official, will take the helm at DHS’ Office of Intelligence and Analysis in addition to his current role. POLITICO obtained the announcement Mayorkas sent to the department.

[…] Mayorkas brought him back to DHS, where he has focused on the department’s efforts to combat domestic terrorism. Earlier this year, DHS stood up a new team in the intelligence office to focus on that specific threat. And late last month, Cohen told members of Congress in a closed-door briefing that the department was concerned about the spread of the conspiracy that Trump will be reinstated as president in August.

Mayorkas’ letter also announced that Samantha Vinograd, currently the department’s senior counselor for national security, will become acting assistant secretary for counterterrorism and threat prevention in the Office of Strategy, Policy and Plans.

The announcement said Vinograd previously worked in government for nearly a decade, including as director for Iraq on the Obama administration’s National Security Council. More recently, she worked at Goldman Sachs and Stripe. She also provided on-air national security commentary for CNN.

In addition to being sickened by our country and our heritage, Vinograd was a top Russiagate conspiracy hoaxer who went so far as to claim the Mueller report was “a gift to the government of Russia” after it failed to back up her baseless conspiracy theories.

Does this sound like someone interested in “securing our homeland”?

 

Biden Admin to Censor “Vaccine Misinformation,” Flag “Problematic” Posts for Facebook

BY VERONIKA KYRYLENKO

Since the Biden administration considers “medical misinformation” a public health threat, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted the administration is playing an active role in flagging Facebook posts considered to be “problematic” or “misinformation.”

During a Thursday press conference, Psaki said White House senior staff were engaging with “social media platforms” to combat the spread of “misinformation specifically on the pandemic.”

“In terms of actions we are taking or that we’re working to take, I should say, from the federal government, we’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the surgeon general’s office. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation,” she said. In addition to directing the company to censor people, the government is also working to “get trusted content out there” by putting doctors and medical professionals in touch with social media influencers. “We also created the COVID-19 community cord to get trusted information into the hands of local messengers,” Psaki said.

Psaki revealed that most of the “vaccine misinformation,” or about 65 percent of it, on social media platforms was originating from “12 people,” but she did not identify any people or pages. She also complained that Facebook is not working fast enough to purge “harmful violative posts,” and added that such posts “often remain up for days — that’s too long.”

Psaki’s admission came after Surgeon General Vivek Murthy issued an advisory declaring misinformation an imminent and insidious threat to our nation’s health.”

“Misinformation takes away our freedom to make informed decisions about our health and the health of our loved ones,” Murthy said at the White House. During just the COVID-19 pandemic, he said, it has led to Americans refusing to wear masks, “turn down proven treatments” and choosing not to get vaccinated. 

The advisory states that as of late May, 67 percent of unvaccinated adults had heard at least one “COVID-19 vaccine myth” and either believed it to be true or were not sure of its veracity. “Health misinformation has already caused significant harm, dividing families and communities and undermining vaccination efforts,” the paper goes. It is said that analysis of “millions of social media posts” found that “false news stories” were 70 percent more likely to be shared than “true stories.” The administration is worried that “even brief exposure to misinformation made people less likely to want a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Health misinformation is defined by the surgeon general as information that is false, inaccurate, or misleading — “according to the best available evidence.” That disclaimer speaks volumes since medical “evidence” has changed on numerous occasions during the pandemic. Regarding one of the most discussed “protective” measures — face masks — the “science” has been ever-changing, and was channeled to the public by the “trusted scientists” who flip-flopped on their recommendations with no reservations, arguing that the “available evidence” had changed. Thus, “available evidence” is fluid, but censorship is constant.

Such “evidence” on vaccines’ safety and efficacy may be just as ambiguous. There are reports of fully vaccinated people catching COVID-19 and dying from it; young men developing higher chances of getting heart inflammation — a fact confirmed by the CDC and FDA; there are also hundreds of cases of vaccines causing blood issues. There is even a warning from a developer of the mRNA technology, Dr. Richard Malone, who said that the mRNA is actually bioactive and cytotoxic, i.e. it damages and kills cells. The “science” behind the vaccines is far from being “settled,” but the Biden administration seems determined to crack down on any information that contradicts the “vaccines are safe and effective” orthodoxy.

In late May, the conservative media watchdog organization Project Veritas published a purported internal Facebook memo concerning “Vaccine Hesitancy Comment Demotion.” The policy aims to “drastically reduce user exposure to vaccine hesitancy,” the document states. The New American covered the story here.

One of the documents leaked to Project Veritas discusses how to flag and categorize “non-violating content” that “raises questions about vaccination … thereby contributing to vaccine hesitancy or refusal.” 

Such “problematic” posts include “shocking stories” about side effects linked to COVID vaccines. Such stories may deter others from taking the vaccine — even if they’re “potentially or actually true events or facts that raise safety concerns.” Under that policy, a story of a 13-year-old boy who died in his sleep after receiving his second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID vaccine and whose death is now officially being investigated by the CDC is considered “indirect vaccine discouragement.” Same goes for the story of a 65-year-old man who developed so-called vaccine-induced thrombosis and thrombocytopenia (VITT), or thrombocytopenia with thrombosis syndrome (TTS), 10 days after receiving his second Moderna jab, and died. His diagnosis is recorded in Annals of Internal Medicine, but it is still a no-go for Facebook and may be classified and flagged as “problematic” information — even though it is true — by the White House.  

Facebook is also said to target comments that claim vaccination is unnecessary owing to plummeting COVID-19 cases and death rates or argue for natural herd immunity against the virus. Such views are also considered “indirect discouragement” that could hurt immunization efforts. 

Trump Slams Biden’s Weak-Kneed Response to Communism

Trump EVISCERATES Biden's Weak-Kneed Response to Communist Oppression in Cuba

On Thursday, former President Donald Trump slammed the Biden administration’s unwillingness to condemn the communist oppression in Cuba by name. While President Joe Biden rightly supported the freedom fighters who took to the streets in Cuba, he did not mention communism or socialism in his denunciation of “Cuba’s authoritarian regime.” On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary refused to condemn communism by name, instead referring to the Cuban government’s “mismanagement.”

Trump mentioned communism in his very first sentence.

“The proud people of Cuba are desperate to be free from the iron boot heel of the Island’s wicked Communist Regime,” the former president wrote. “These incredible warriors for freedom risk everything to take to the streets in their quest for freedom. I stand in total solidarity with the freedom fighters in Cuba and the brave Cuban Americans who have watched their families suffer in the motherland at the hands of this heartless and brutal regime.”

Then Trump turned to the Biden administration’s fecklessness.

“The Biden Administration’s refusal to forcefully condemn Communism and the Cuban Communist Regime is a national travesty,” the former president declared. “The Biden Administration’s ludicrous suggestion that the Cubans are protesting government mismanagement—not brutal Communist oppression—is an insult to every Cuban patriot who has suffered, been imprisoned, or died in pursuit of freedom.”

“Today’s Democrat Party is so far left they can’t even take a stand against violent Communism,” Trump declared. “Many are Communists themselves!”

While many Cuban freedom fighters rally around the American flag as a symbol of freedom, many on the Left are demonizing the flag as a symbol of racism. Nikole Hannah-Jones, founder of the discredited 1619 Project, praised the Cuban communist regime for supposedly getting rid of racism. Black Lives Matter gave a statement supporting Cuba and blaming the United States for the protests. Meanwhile, the Biden administration, which rushed to accept asylum seekers on the southern border, has announced that Cuban asylum seekers would get turned away from the U.S. and resettled in a third country.

Some of Biden’s allies have praised Cuba.

“Cuba has solved some very important problems,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who supported Biden after he lost the Democratic primary, said in 1989. “I did not see a hungry child. I did not see any homeless people. Cuba today not only has free health care but very high-quality health care.”

During the 2020 campaign, Sanders said, “When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing, even though Fidel Castro did it?” He also suggested that the Cuban people didn’t remove Castro from power because “he educated their kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society, you know?” In reality, the counter-revolution against Castro failed because the Cuban dictator silenced dissidents via firing squad.

Biden partially won the 2020 Democratic primary because Democrats feared that Sanders would win, so they coalesced around the more “moderate” alternative. Yet Biden lurched to the Left during the campaign, reversing his decades-long support for the Hyde Amendment, echoing Sanders’ rhetoric on universal health care — even though he did not support the Medicare for All proposal — and supporting more big-government social programs.

Trump lamented that he does not get another chance to implement his strategic vision for freedom in the Western Hemisphere.

“As President, I advanced a strategic vision in which the people of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua would be free, and that the Western Hemisphere would be the first fully free hemisphere in all of human history,” Trump wrote. “The Biden Administration is squandering a historic opportunity to stand for freedom and human rights in our home region. The Biden Administration is betraying the freedom-loving people of Cuba. I fought for Cuba, they didn’t.”

Former President Barack Obama took steps to normalize relations with Cuba, restoring diplomatic ties and expanding trade, but Trump reversed course, hitting the communist regime with new sanctions. Biden pledged to ease the sanctions, but the protests may lead him to reconsider. Meanwhile, some Democrats are demanding Biden lift the sanctions.

Biden Lifts Sanctions on Venezuela, As Maduro and ally Communist Cuba crack down on democratic protesters

BY LLOYD BILLINGSLEY

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/07/biden-lifts-sanctions-venezuela-lloyd-billingsley/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

“The U.S. Department of the Treasury on Monday lifted sanctions on the export of gas to socialist Venezuela,” Breitbart reported on Tuesday, “a boon to the dictatorship in Caracas and its patron government in communist Cuba, which struggles to suppress mounting opposition and calls for the regime’s total abolition.” The lifting of sanctions is significant because “Caracas has further served as an economic lifeline for Havana, supplying much of the regime’s energy needs on credit, with extremely lenient terms.”

As the U.S. announced the lifting of sanctions, the Miami Herald reported, Venezuela’s Maduro regime surrounded the home of opposition leader Juan Guaidó and arrested his former deputy Freddy Guevara. The U.S. move took the establishment media by surprise.

“The Biden Administration is also maintaining its predecessor Donald Trump’s confrontational stance on Venezuela and China, two of Cuba's closest allies,” Newsweek reported Tuesday, in a piece headlined, “Joe Biden Wounds Cuba, Venezuela and China's Hopes of Obama-style Détente.” Back in February, Reuters reported that Biden was in “no rush” to lift sanctions on Venezuela but would consider easing them if Maduro showed he was ready to negotiate with the opposition.

Maduro did no such thing, and cracked down on the opposition even as the sanctions were lifted. Protesters in Caracas and Havana had grounds to believe the move aligned the United States with Cuban and Venezuelan regimes, and against those now suffering repression. Biden’s belated statement on the Cuban protesters, for example, was hardly “full-throated,” as Newsweek claimed.

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic,” the White House statement said, “and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime.” So the protest is primarily about the pandemic and an openly Communist regime is only “authoritarian.” Contrast Biden with Bernie Sanders during the 2020 primaries. “We’re very very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba,” the Vermont socialist said, “ but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad.”

Cuban protesters bore signs denouncing la dictadura, but Biden would not say “dictatorship,” or “totalitarian,” much less “Communist.” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden press secretary Jen Psaki if Cubans wanted to leave because “they don’t like Communism.” Psaki said Cubans were “opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country.” 

In similar style on Tuesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters “Cubans were “tired of the mismanagement of the Cuban economy, tired of the lack of adequate food and, of course, an adequate response to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

On Tuesday Biden’s Department of Homeland Security boss Alejandro Mayorkas told Cubans “if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.” If individuals establish “a well-founded fear of persecution or torture, they are referred to third countries for resettlement. They will not enter the United States.”  As embattled Cubans might note, that marks a stark contrast to Biden’s open-border policy with “migrants” from anywhere else in the world.

“Freedom Floats: Cubans Risking Death to Cross Straits on ‘Chugs,’” headlines a July 2 report in Keysweekly. Since October, the U.S. Coast Guard has interdicted 512 Cubans. If the fleeing Cubans are intercepted “they are held at an undisclosed location and returned in groups to the island nation.” Flight from the Communist nation is not a new development.

According to the Library of Congress, “In the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of hopeful emigrants attempted to flee by sea, chancing death by drowning, exposure, or shark attacks to make the 90-mile crossing. Many thousands rode only on flimsy, dangerous, homemade vessels, including inner tubes, converted cars, and cheap plywood rafts, or balsos. Hundreds of the balseros died on the journey.” For other accounts of the exodus see the Washington Post, from 1991, and a 2014 report in the New York Times.

As these and many other reports confirm, Cuba is so repressive that Cubans of all ages will flee the Communist dictadura in virtually anything that floats, risking their lives and leaving loved ones behind. Cuba was a Soviet colony but after the demise of the USSR, Venezuela became Cuba’s primary supporter. Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro transformed a prosperous nation into a socialist basket case, but the regime still propped up the Cuban dictadura. Biden’s lifting of sanctions will reinforce that support.

Maduro regards Juan Guaidó as a U.S. puppet, the role Joe Biden plays for the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama.  His beloved Frank Marshall Davis, who got more than 2,000 words in Dreams from My Father, was an African American Communist who spent most of his life defending an all-white Soviet dictatorship. In similar style, the composite character president put time back on the clock for Cuba’s all-white Communist dictadura, headed for decades by white Sado-Stalinist Fidel Castro.

The composite character is a big fan of Black Lives Matter, and according to BLM Cuba is being “punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination.” A BLM statement blames the USA for Cuba’s problems and praises the regime for protecting “Black revolutionaries like Assata Shakur,” a reference to cop-killer JoAnne Chesimard, given asylum by Fidel Castro.

Joe Biden is such a fan of Black Lives Matter that he allows U.S. embassies to display BLM flags and banners.  Maybe the Delaware Democrat thinks Cubans “ain’t black,” if they don’t like their “authoritarian” government that mismanages the economy. If Cubans thought the addled Joe Biden was a friend of the Communist dictadura and an enemy of the Cuban people it would be hard to blame them.

How the Air Force Academy Makes the Disloyal Military Leaders of Tomorrow~Brainwashing the men and women who protect America to hate and destroy it

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

[Editor's note: The article below is a new edition of our Disloyal Military series. To learn about our 3-Part Series on the Disloyal Military, Progressive Fascists and Racist Mayors, CLICK HERE.]

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

In 2007, Mark Milley, then a mere colonel, was being interviewed about his experiences by Lynne Chandler Garcia. Now Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Milley is defending critical race theory while Garcia, an associate professor at the Air Force Academy, teaches it.

The woman described by one student as "the worst professor I've had" back when she was teaching logic for the philosophy department at a community college recently came forward with a Washington Post op-ed announcing her enthusiasm for injecting Marxism into the Air Force.

"I teach critical race theories to our nation’s future military leaders because it is vital that cadets understand the history of the racism that has shaped both foreign and domestic policy,” the historically illiterate logic teacher wrote.

Garcia, whose bio states that she holds “military secret clearance”, is promoting a Marxist ideology in her “Politics, American Government, and National Security" course. The curriculum lists her course, which implicitly attacks the existence of America, as a ”contributor to the development and assessment of the National Security of the American Republic”.

The Air Force Academy admitted that “some elements from CRT canon are included in the course to encourage critical thinking" (another academic term for Marxism), but claimed that critical race theory is not "endorsed by the institution as institutional doctrine.”

It has however been endorsed every other way.

The disloyal military leaders of tomorrow are being shaped in the corrupted Academy of today.

As the BLM race riots devastated American cities, former superintendent Jay Silveria, who had been handpicked by former Air Force Chief of Staff David Goldfein to head the Academy, told students that it was "a time to acknowledge that disparities exist in our nation and within our Force, and that we must all be willing to talk about the realities of social injustice."

Outside the world of Marxist wokeness “disparities” are the result of individual choices, talents, dedication and so forth, and in America have nothing to do with racism, since institutional racism was outlawed by the Civil Rights Act almost 60 years ago.

Silveria was echoing his boss’ call for outrage over George Floyd’s drug overdose death and his claims that America was somehow racist. Along with his push for a review of racial disparities.

“We have to acknowledge we have racism, we have bias,” Silveria insisted. That’s one man’s ideologically shaped opinion, but do our military recruits have to have that drummed into them by a community college logic teacher who lacks any credentials for making pronouncements that defame the country her institution and its students are supposed to be defending?

Like much of the military, the Air Force Academy was subjected to "critical conversations" that Silvera claimed would help those like him who were "confused, angry and need to discuss what is going on in our nation."

In July, the academy's football team and coaches – more authorities on things they don’t know - released a video supporting Black Lives Matter.

“Educate yourself on the role that race plays in our history,” a white coach demanded. "It’s time for me to recognize my bias," another white coach confessed.

"Black lives have not been and are not treated as equals in our society," players and coaches angrily chanted the mantra of critical race theory racists. "It’s not enough for us to be not racist. It’s time to be anti-racist."  This sentence is ideological garbage straight out of Ibram X Kendi’s racist book How To Be An Anti-Racist, which according to the leftist Kendi is by agreeing with him. Literally.

Superintendent Silveria did not condemn the video in which Academy employees used an official social media account to push a partisan racist message. Instead, he doubled down on critical race theory, falsely claiming that "across our Nation, we are also grappling with an outpouring of emotion and outrage over systemic racism and social injustice." To repeat. systemic racism was outlawed by the 1964 Civil Rights Act. If it exists, it’s illegal and there would be lawsuits collecting damages. If it exists, where are those lawsuits?

Instead of disciplining the coaches involved, he issued a memo to improve "diversity and inclusion" and falsely claimed that "systemic racism exists in our society" affecting "identity groups" based "on race, ethnicity, age, gender", and "sexual orientation."

Systemic racism can’t and does not exist except in a program like “affirmative action” which had to get a pass from the Supreme Court precisely because it is illegal. And yet the leadership of the Air Force Academy insisted on brainwashing future military leaders with Marxist lies.

“The Black Lives Matter movement is important and I understand the purpose and the oppression behind the movement,” Silvera told the Journal of Character and Leadership Development.

The Center for Character and Leadership Development, once tasked with inculcating ethics and purpose, was leading those “critical conversations” about racism based on disparities that are the results of inequalities that exist in all racial groups. And of course the epidemic of anti-white racism, the most prominent form of ignorant bigotry abroad today.

This year, a professor at the Center wrote an article in the journal calling not for a "post-racial mindset", but an "inherently anti-racism mindset" where “anti-racism” means accepting delusional fantasies of America as “white supremacist” society, when the opposite is the case. In the real world eight racial groups “of color” have greater incomes than whites, which would be impossible in the fantasy world that the Air Force Academy now claims exists.

Another article by two professors contended that "American freedom... is unequal and differentiated, especially by race, ethnicity, gender" and urged that the military should not be an apolitical institution but that the role of military leaders should be to help soldiers "understand and confront'' political debates. Otherwise "American military leaders may miss an opportunity to contribute constructively to a national debate on these important matters."

The military serves its national purpose when it is a killing machine superior to that of our enemies. Turning it into a social experiment kaffeeklatsch undermines its only legitimate purpose and makes us vulnerable to our enemies whose societies are the most oppressive and racist on earth.

The military and its leaders are being reshaped to serve the malignant purposes of our most determined enemies.

The USAFA once encouraged cadets to see themselves as part of something larger. Now it undermines that unity and cohesion with sessions that promote the "Native American Experience" and the "African-American Experience" urging those who "identify" with the group to segregate themselves by race and complain about their status within the military.

The identity politics rot continued as Silvera stepped down and was replaced by Superintendent Richard M. Clark. Just as Goldfein had made way for Brown, the first black Air Force Chief of Staff, Clark would be the first black superintendent of the Air Force Academy.

Clark described his son going to a BLM protest and suggested that much of the Air Force might feel the same way. “There’s probably an anger that we don’t even know about," he suggested.

It was ugly and dangerously inappropriate language for a senior military leader to use.

Instead of using his appointment as evidence of the country’s incredible opportunities for those like him, the new superintendent was carrying on the tradition of trashing America as racist

Earlier this year, the Air Force Academy announced that it was opening a special Diversity and Inclusion Reading Room in the McDermott Library in response to Floyd’s drug overdose death and the accompanying Black Lives Matter riots. The reading room boasted a post-it board encouraging students to jot down what diversity meant to them.

The McDermott Library already offers copies of Ibram X. Kendi's How To Be An Anti-Racist and Stamped From the Beginning, along with Ta-Nehisi Coates' rabidly racist screed, Between The World And Me, which demonized the police officers and firefighters who died to rescue trapped Americans on 9/11 as "not human to me", and described black crime as entirely the fault of whites.

Also available is Race Course Against White Supremacy, a book by domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Ayers actually bombed the Pentagon, and described it in his memoir in these words:  “Everything was absolutely ideal. … The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.”

The book by a domestic terrorist who bombed the Pentagon and invented the term “white skin privilege falsely claims that “the United States was conceived as a white supremacist nation” and “remains fundamentally dedicated to structures, institutions, and ideologies that construct and enforce white domination.”

The transformation of the Air Force Academy into just another radical campus has confused and angered many of its alumni who remember a very different institution. And it was different.

The United States Air Force Academy faculty had been made up exclusively of military officers for generations. That helped protect the USAFA from the academic decay of most colleges. But in 1994, a Democrat Congress forced the academy to integrate “civilian faculty”. Like the intellectually challenged and ideologically warped, Garcia.

While many students and faculty initially resisted the civilian academics, the radicals began to inject their leftist politics into the classroom and used them to sow dissension in the military ranks. Service branch academies, once fundamentally different from civilian colleges, are coming to resemble the campuses and curriculums of any left-wing college.

Air Force Academy courses like Class, Race, and Ethnicity in Society, and Gender, Sexuality, and Society, offer familiar narratives attacking Martin Luther King’s vision of a colorblind society as racist, and promoting the racist idea of skin privilege. And while it's not surprising to see identity politics embedded into English and Behavioral Science, the "socio-cultural" element in USAFA's History department is almost as bad with students being asked to analyze WW1 through the lenses of "colonialism, race" and "gender".

Race, gender, and class are a constant academic theme at USAFA. And race and gender are linked to leadership and accomplishment when it comes to ethics and values.

Lynne Chandler Garcia is not an outlier. She’s just one of the few civilian professors to go public outside Air Force circles about what’s really going on at the Air Force Academy.

Each Democrat administration has added another building block to the crisis that has decimated the integrity and allegiances of the Air Force Academy and much of the rest of the military.

The Clinton administration and its allies in Congress helped put the likes of Garcia and other leftist radicals in USAFA classrooms. The Academy hands out copies of Attitudes Aren't Free: Thinking Deeply about Diversity in the US Armed Forces, a text from the Obama administration, which promoted radical gender and racial ideas, including “privilege”, into the military.

Tragically, for our nation, the Biden administration is continuing Clinton and Obama’s destruction of the military.

The disloyal military leadership is composed of some careerists who have learned to tell Democrat administrations what they want to hear and incorporate all their social agendas.

But others are the products of a military academic system that is as broken and corrupt as our civilian colleges, which have become one-party Marxist institutions.

When Garcia boasts of teaching "critical race theories to our nation’s future military leaders”, she’s taking pride in weakening the defenses of a country she hates.

The disloyal military leaders of tomorrow will be the products of Garcia’s classes, and political indoctrination sessions like them.

Better military leadership begins with restoring the integrity of the Air Force Academy and all service branch academies. Our country is barely surviving woke government and woke corporations, it will not survive the disloyal military leaders of a woke military.

America’s Frontline Doctors: Door-to-door COVID shot pushers report unvaccinated to government health departments

‘Be sure to fill out the Doorknocking Spreadsheet with the counts of who still needs a vaccine … This is important information that the Health Department is relying on!’

The Department of Homeland Security offers a training course to law enforcement, health care workers, and other government employees detailing how to prepare and execute a mass public quarantine in rural areas of the United States.

A website by the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC), a training provider for the Department of Homeland Security, says:

“This 8.0-hour, instructor-led course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine (I&Q) of a large portion of a local, rural population. This training will provide public- and private-sector emergency managers, community policymakers, public health, and public safety personnel with the general knowledge necessary to begin planning for situations requiring the isolation and quarantine of a large portion of a local, rural population. A rural community’s ability to collectively respond to an emergency requiring isolation and quarantine is not only essential to minimizing the negative impacts to the community at risk, but also to minimizing the long-term negative economic and health effects on the American public as a whole.”

“This program was supported by Cooperative Agreement Number EMW-2016-CA-0097, administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Directorate, National Training & Education Division.” A disclaimer reads: “Points of view or opinions in this program are those of the author(s) and do not represent the position or policies of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Federal Emergency Management Agency.”

“Core Capabilities” recommended for course participants include environmental response/health and safety, on-scene security and protection, operational communications, operations coordination, planning, public health, healthcare and emergency medical services, risk management for protection, programs, and activities, situational assessment, and supply chain integrity and security. However, the only solid prerequisite to gain the “knowledge necessary” in the 8-hour course is that the “participant must be a U.S. citizen.”

Module Two of the course overview entitled Legal and Ethical Issues of Isolation and Quarantine says: “This module focuses on the legal and ethical considerations of isolation and quarantine. The federal, state and local government legal authorities regarding isolation and quarantine responses will be covered. Due process of law regarding isolation and quarantine will also be reviewed.”

Each student is required “to participate in and pass a course post-assessment with a score of 70% or better to meet the course completion requirements. Each student who meets all of the course completion requirements will receive a pre-approved, Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) certificate of completion stamped with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) logo.”

It is unclear what authority bearers of this certificate wield, or the limits thereof.

A Lake County, Illinois Health Department document entitled Community Health Ambassador Outreach Door Knocking Project to Increase COVID Vaccine Acceptance contains “information and a script” that stresses: “You are not soliciting. Because you are not seeking an order for any goods or services, you are not considered a solicitor. Therefore, ‘No Solicitation’ signs do not apply to you while you are performing this activity.”

The document continues: “After you enter the building, orient yourself so you systematically proceed from floor-to-floor, covering each wing. Utilize the tally sheet to keep count of those interested in getting the vaccine, those who refuse and those with further questions.”

The document also advises participants to “report on your work! Be sure to fill out the Doorknocking Spreadsheet with the counts of who still needs a vaccine … This is important information that the Health Department is relying on!”

Meanwhile, in the words of breaking911.com, North Carolina health department workers “armed” with COVID-19 shots lurked nearby as Action NC volunteers went door to door, plying their target neighborhoods with the experimental biological agent.

“Action NC’s mission is to confront and reduce the root causes of poverty, underdevelopment, and social and economic inequality through grassroots education, training, organization and mobilization.

We organize in poor and working-income communities full of talented and committed people looking for an opportunity to work together to build a stronger and more secure future. We reach out to them in a variety of ways to offer them the opportunity to join, organize, fight, and win.”

“The purpose of these campaigns is to win improvements and to build power,” Action NC’s mission statement says, concluding: “as our members work to build our organization, we also look for opportunities to partner effectively with others so that we can present a stronger and more united front in our specific campaigns, and in our collective drive for justice and equality.”

In a 2017 article appearing on the Action NC website entitled How Trump has trumped your rights, author Kevin Rogers wrote: “Since Donald Trump has taken office, every policy that has been suggested or imposed has received fierce backlash from a majority of the country.”

 

LUDLOW, MASS. Middle school staff grooms kids to be “transgender”; changes their names, and hides it from parents

Preferred pronouns. Banning the term ‘boys and girls.’ And more.

Transgender indoctrination begins: Notice on classroom door from librarian and two other staff members instructs kids to have "respect and tolerance" for the LGBT agenda.

The insane idea of “transgenderism” – that a person was “born as the wrong body” and therefore must “change” it – is now being foisted on middle school students (ages 11-13). What is going on? How does this happen? What you are about to read is ghastly. But it is now frighteningly common across America.

As we described in previous sections, in late 2019 and early 2020 the Baird Middle School in Ludlow, MA, became a center of controversy when a teacher (and some parents) exposed the graphic sexual, homosexual, and transgender themed books in the library and classrooms. This was primarily the handiwork of the librarian (a weird cross-dressing woman) and her many allies on the staff. It was supported by the Principal, the Superintendent, and the School Board.

Parents were very upset. But little did they know that this was just the beginning.

The gruesome “transgender lessons”

The COVID shutdowns kept the kids out of school for much of 2020. But late in the year the kids began coming back for a few days a week in shifts (which often changed). Teachers (and also guidance counselors) took advantage of that disruption to introduce radical “transgender” ideas to the kids.

Because of the changing COVID schedules, many of the kids began spending a lot of time in the library. According to several sources, the librarian often held “one-on-one” book talks with certain children. They were given special books to read and even suggestions of transgender-themed YouTube videos to watch. As one teacher pointed out, many of these are kids from troubled homes and were easy prey for such messages. The librarian also put up a prominent gay / transgender “safe space” sign outside the library door and (we were told) “unisex” signs on the boys’ and girls’ restrooms.

Sign on the library door: "This is a safe and inclusive space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students and their allies."

Teachers in the school, along with students, were instructed not to use the terms “boys” and “girls” because they were too gender-specific. A list of “alternatives” was posted with acceptable terms that could be used instead. (It was not universally supported; one teacher there resigned over this.)

It went even farther. In their classrooms children were being told to decide their “preferred pronouns” (“him” or “her” – or something else!). One can imagine the psychological confusion that this bizarre concept brings to young minds. It is right out of lunatic “queer theory” and educators everywhere are buying into it.

Parents also discovered that some children were being persuaded by school staff, including guidance counselors, that they are truly “transgender.” For example, one girl said that because she likes doing some “boys” things like fishing, she was told that probably she really is a boy.

Assigning kids opposite-sex first names!

As children’s confusion grew, teachers were facilitating the trans indoctrination by calling them opposite-sex first names in class. For example, Jack would be called “Judy” and Sharon would be called “Steve” by the teacher - and also fellow students – and they began to accept it as reality. This happened with several children that we now know of. Because the school was doing this to them, the kids thought it was all right. But the school administration purposefully kept this information from the parents.

The Superintendent and Principal both approved of this vile tactic. In fact, they were prepared to officially change kids’ names on the school records “when the student is ready,” we were told – also without parents’ knowledge or input.

It’s hard for normal people to appreciate the depth of this toxic situation. Here is an example of an email that one of the Baird guidance counselors sent to the rest of the staff in early 2021, regarding a 11-year-old girl:

Subject: Michael [Last name] – Preferred name and pronouns

From: Marie-Claire Foley

Hi all,

Mary has a preferred name of Michael/Mike and preferred pronouns of he and his. He understands that there will be times that “Mary” and “she/her” slips out and he is fine with that.

Michael is still in the process of telling his parents and is requesting that school staff refer to him as Mary and use she/her pronouns with his parents and in written emails/letters home. When Michael has informed his parents of his preferred name and pronouns, we will change the name in the computer system if that is what he wishes to do at that time.

I explained to him that we understand this is a complicated process and we will be as supportive as possible – but may make mistakes from time to time.

Thanks,
Marie

More to come

It is hard for most of us to believe that people would do this to children - especially the teachers and guidance counselors in a middle school, with the full support of the Superintendent and Principal and even the School Board.

Unfortunately, most of us are very naive. It is now like this almost everywhere across the country (and beyond). What local schools are doing to vulnerable children is evil and criminal. But this isn’t the end of the story in Ludlow!

Next: The “transgenderism” gets exposed and the fight in Ludlow takes off - as MassResistance gets involved!

Please help us continue to do our uncompromising work!

Our successes depend on people like you.

Polls: Post China Virus, Britons, Americans Willing to Give Up Liberties

BY R. CORT KIRKWOOD

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/polls-post-china-virus-britons-americans-willing-to-give-up-liberties/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The last 15 months of China Virus shutdowns and mask mandates have given Americans a taste of authoritarianism, and they apparently like it. The same is true for Britons.

Polling data pulled together by the libertarian Reason magazine also show that restrictions to basic liberties needn’t be tied to the potentially deadly Asiatic pathogen. Many of those polled will happily curtail their activities and freedom of movement for the “common good.”

That, of course, is defined by the same power-mad politicians and public-health authorities who shut down the world economy after China unleashed the virus. 

The Data

The latest numbers, Reason reported, come from an Ipsos MORI poll for The Economist:

“Public willingness to sacrifice for the common good in a time of crisis has surprised ministers,” The Economist noted last week. “But the pandemic has also revealed John Bull’s authoritarian streak.” The magazine went on to report on the results of polling conducted along with Ipsos MORI that found a surprising degree of support among Britons not just for the lockdowns of the past year, but for maintaining restrictions sold as efforts to head off the spread of COVID-19.

Two-thirds of those polled want masks, social distancing, and travel restrictions “until covid-19 is controlled worldwide, which may take years,” The Economist reported.

Then comes this frightening fact from the polling report: “[A] sizeable minority would like personal freedoms to be restricted permanently.”

You read that right: “Restricted permanently.”

What might those restrictions include, and what’s the level of support? Try these on for size:

  • keeping nightclubs and casinos closed forever (26 percent); 
  • enforced social distancing in theaters, pubs and sports grounds (34 percent); 
  • mandatory 10-day quarantines for people returning from foreign countries (35 percent); mandatory tracking-app check-ins when entering pubs and restaurants (36 percent); 
  • mandatory masks in shops and on public transportation (40 percent); and 
  • foreign travel allowed only with proof of vaccination (46 percent).

As well, the Ipsos poll found that “majorities favor keeping some controls in place ‘until COVID-19 is under control worldwide.’”

The madness isn’t confined to England. 

“A plurality of voters say their area should start to roll back coronavirus restrictions when at least 75 percent of the local population is vaccinated,” The Hill reported of the Hill-HarrisX poll:

Thirty-four percent of registered voters in the March 5-8 survey said restrictions should be lifted when at least 75 percent of the population in an area has been vaccinated.

Roughly a quarter of respondents, 24 percent, said restrictions should be rolled back right now, while 21 percent said the vaccinated population should reach at least 50 percent capacity first.

Another 7 percent said restrictions should be lifted when one in four people have been vaccinated, while 14 percent said restrictions should be kept in place “indefinitely.”

Again, you read that right: Virus restrictions will be “indefinite.”

Reuters survey the same month found strong support for restrictions on those who aren’t vaccinated, Reason reported:

The poll found majority support for barring the unvaccinated from airplanes (63 percent), public schools (59 percent), gyms (54 percent), theaters (56 percent), and offices where they’re employed (56 percent). All of this even though the vaccines against COVID-19 are remarkably effective at shielding those who take them against illness, no matter the status of people around them.

Continuing Expectations

Continued Reason, “admittedly, that was several months ago, before everybody who wanted a COVID-19 vaccine had an opportunity to get jabbed; fears may have calmed since then. But more recent surveys showing a continuing expectation of, and taste for, restrictions.”

Thus, 62 percent of those polled in June by East Carolina University backed last year’s stay-at-home-orders even after the economic wreckage they caused and the sight of politicians and other prominent officials violating those orders with impunity.

“Similar majorities favored face-covering mandates (65.1 percent) and quarantine requirements (67.9 percent) imposed in many states over the past year — but also said that wasn’t enough,” Reason reported:

COVID-19 “was a problem and not enough was done early on to stop it from getting worse,” agreed 62.6 percent of those polled. A dissenting 28.5 percent believed “it was a problem, but governments overreacted.”

A Gallup survey in June found that 35 percent believe “healthy people should ‘stay home as much as possible to avoid contracting or spreading the coronavirus,’” and “a depressingly high 40 percent say that life will ‘never get back to normal.’”

Cuba: Communist Gov’t Uses Violence and Censorship, Blames Cubans in America for Protests

Cuba: Communist Gov’t Uses Violence and Censorship, Blames Cubans in America for Protests

The communist government of Cuba has cracked down on the protests that began this past weekend, using violence to quell otherwise mostly peaceful demonstrations. It is now reported that a Cuban protester has died after police allegedly opened fire on a crowd of protesters. Many others have been arrested, including well-known dissidents, civil-rights activists, and artists.

On Wednesday, Daily Mail reported that police allegedly opened fire on a peaceful demonstration, killing 36-year-old Diubis Laurencio Tejeda. And an anti-government reporter was arrested live on TV. Waldo Herrera, a resident of the area where this took place, said, “I think the Communists have lost control, they won’t have a solution to this situation.”

Tejeda’s death was confirmed by the Orwellian-named Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Cuba, though it did not confirm reports that Tejeda died from a gunshot as security forces opened fire on a group of protesters. Daily Mail reported, “Hundreds had taken to streets in La Guinera, shouting slogans like ‘down with communism,’ and ‘freedom for the people of Cuba,’ according to two residents and video footage seen by Reuters.” The report also states that Herrera said some of the protesters started throwing rocks at security forces, who eventually responded with gunfire.

Social-media activist Dina Stars was arrested in the middle of an online video interview with Spain TV host Marta Flich on Tuesday. As she was discussing the protests with Flich, Stars was informed that security services were outside her home, demanding that she come out. She told Flich, “Security is out there,” adding, “I have to go out.” As she stood to go out, she said, “I make the government responsible for whatever happens to me.” She returned a few moments later to end the interview, saying she was being taken to police headquarters.

As the Daily Mail reported, “Additional footage posted on Twitter appears to show Stars being escorted by two police officers into a vehicle outside her building.”

It is not known whether Stars has been released or is still being held.

Others being held included dissident Guillermo Farinas, former political prisoner Jose Daniel Ferrer, and artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcantara.

Ss CNN reported, “The Movimiento San Isidro, which advocates for greater artistic expression in Cuba, published a list of activists that it said were believed to have been detained by authorities.” According to Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares, journalist Camila Acosta is among those detained or arrested. Albares has called for her release.

Furthermore, the heavy-handed communist government has been interrupting the Internet and blocking social media as a reaction to the protests. President (and Communist Party leader) Miguel Díaz-Canel has blamed the protests on Cubans in America, saying they have used social media to spark the protests and fan the flames.

Diaz-Canel made his claims about social-media posts from Cubans living in America during a nationally televised appearance Monday in which his entire Cabinet was present. “We’ve seen how the campaign against Cuba was growing on social media in the past few weeks,” he said, adding, “That’s the way it’s done — Try to create in conformity, dissatisfaction by manipulating emotions and feelings.”

A Tale of Two Protests: Cuba’s Anti-communist Demonstrations and America’s Pro-communist Riots

The contrast between the protests in Cuba and those in America is worth noting. The protests in Cuba are by people sick and tired of being crushed under the boot of communism and are marked by mostly peaceful demonstrations; those in America are by crybaby snowflakes sick and tired of living in a land of freedom and opportunity and — while often described as “mostly peaceful” by the liberal media — are marked by violence, looting, and vandalism. Cubans cry, “Freedom!” and “Fatherland and Life!” and — while crowding the street outside the Communist Party headquarters — “Cuba isn’t yours!” Antifa and BLM cry, “No Justice, No Peace!” “F**k the Police!” and “Burn it down!” while demanding the very communism from which Cubans cry to be free.

All of that is to say that when this writer describes the protests in Cuba as being mostly peaceful, it is not the same thing as the liberal media describing a BLM/Antifa riot as “mostly peaceful” as the fires of revolution burn in the background. In fact, it is almost the exact opposite.

Of course, there have been reports of Cuban protesters throwing rocks at government security forces there. But, frankly, that is to be expected; Cuba’s communist regime has a history of silencing all opposition by rounding people up, imprisoning them, and even executing them, all without anything approaching due process or a fair trial. So, far from the situation in the United States where BLM claims to live in fear of police while dancing on police cars, Cubans who dare challenge their tyrannical government have a legitimate reason to fear. That is why many thousands of them have — in the more than 60 years since Castro’s revolution plunged the former island paradise into a despotic hole of misery — crossed the sea to Florida in makeshift rafts unfit for calm waters, much less the ocean. Those Cubans risked their lives to escape a fate they seem to deem worse than death.

Cuba was seized in a revolution. The communist government there was born in violence; it will likely have to die in violence. So, if protesters who have gathered peacefully to demand that the communists loosen the reins find themselves being arrested and dragged off as political prisoners, perhaps they can be forgiven for throwing a few rocks at security forces.

Here in America, we can only pray for the true liberation of Cuba and that God saves us from a similar fate.
