How Democrats Faked a Jobs Boom The government is creating jobs. Literally.

[Order Daniel Greenfield’s new book, Domestic Enemies: HERE.]

“Today’s report marks a milestone in America’s comeback,” Joe Biden bragged in March. “With today’s report of 303,000 new jobs in March, we have passed the milestone of 15 million jobs created since I took office.” Milestone or a millstone though might be a matter of opinion.

Politicians like to brag about “creating jobs” and for once it was literally true.

Of those 300,000 jobs, 71,000 or 1 in 4 were government jobs. Another 72,000 jobs came out of the healthcare industry, which is heavily government funded. And 9,000 came from “employment in social assistance” or welfare. About 1 in 2 of Biden’s jobs were funded by taxpayers in one form or another. The only non-government industry showing significant job growth was the hospitality industry, which was prepping temporary employment for vacation season.

An even more absurd story of government job growth came out of New York City, where city officials boasted of having recovered all the jobs lost during the pandemic. But a Bloomberg article revealed that “virtually all of the jobs added in the 12 months ended in March were in home health care, a low-paying but rapidly swelling field. It’s technically classified as private employment, but home health care is paid for primarily through publicly funded health programs like Medicaid.” Meanwhile actual private sector jobs were vanishing in New York.

“It’s giving us this sense that our economy is growing when in fact it’s really just Medicaid that’s growing,”  Bill Hammond, a senior fellow for health policy at the Empire Center for Public Policy, pointed out.

While the Education and Health and the Government job sectors boomed in New York, mostly everything else was contracting or struggling.

And it’s not just New York City.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics report for the nation in April noted 175,000 new jobs of which the majority, 95,000, were in Private Education and Health Services. This was once again the only category that showed any significant growth.

The BLS’s Occupational Outlook Handbook estimated a massive 804,000 increase in Home Health and Personal Care Aides that far outweighed any other job categories. Around 1.4 million of its projected new jobs were in the healthcare arena, far outweighing any other group like construction (61,000) or accountants (67,400).

While America’s population is aging, everyone didn’t suddenly get much older and sicker in a matter of a few years, but we have been spending a whole lot more money on healthcare.

One of the disastrous COVID-19 boondoggles was the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which forced states to keep everyone on Medicaid. As a result, Medicaid enrollment has gone on the rise each year by sizable numbers with no definitive decline in enrollment until 2024. The move wiped out all of the Republican congressional reforms during the Obama era and the sharp decline in enrollment under Trump.

The latest New York State budget spends $100 billion on Medicaid. In a state with a population of 19 million, 7.6 million or 40% are on Medicaid.

How did New York City create its massive jobs boom in the “home health industry”?

The answer, discovered by Bloomberg, is that the city began paying family members to take care of Medicaid recipients while treating them as “private sector” workers. The number of people being listed as workers because they provided some care for family members shot up from less than 20,000 in 2016 to 247,538 in 2023. The cost to taxpayers for this program rose to $9 billion and federal funding of New York’s Medicaid program comes out to $66 billion.

The added advantage is that the government was creating jobs without creating any new jobs. It had simply begun paying people for what they were doing already while taking all the credit.

The Biden administration’s Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services began aggressively promoting an expansion in home health care workers last year and it’s paying off. Last year, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra boasted of having handed out $37 billion from the badly misnamed ‘American Rescue Plan’ for home based services and enhanced Medicaid funding.

Democratic states took advantage of COVID measures and Biden's funding to increase their workforces. The home health care workforce more than doubled in Illinois, increased vastly in California, and Wisconsin used pandemic funding to expand its home health care program.

Health care spending and other forms of welfare are a vital part of Biden’s fake jobs boom.

Front Page Investigates (FCI) revealed earlier this year that 10% of new January jobs had come from “employment in social assistance”. The current BLS report shows that “employment in social assistance increased by 31,000 in April” out of a total of 175,000 jobs.

Employment in social assistance has been gaining an average of 22,000 jobs a month.

Along with health care, welfare continues to be a leading source of Biden’s job growth. These are not the signs of a healthy economy, but a faltering socialist economy faking its job growth.

Rather than creating private sector jobs, Biden and the Democrats are creating government funded private sector jobs, some of which, like those in New York City, are not even jobs at all.

By boosting Medicaid spending and other forms of welfare assistance, Biden and the Democrats faked a jobs boom and an economic expansion that doesn’t exist.

With total Medicaid spending of over $800 billion and overall welfare spending that is too vast to even capture, the Biden administration, along with state and city governments, took us deep into debt to manufacture a recovery without doing anything more than padding out the union and welfare rolls that provide them with their voting base.

And it’s not an original idea. Health care employment has risen at a far more dramatic rate than regular employment since the Clinton administration. Health care employment has increased 100% since 1990 while other forms of employment have struggled to reach 40%. And where other jobs have not recovered, health care continues to grow. 10% of all jobs are now in the health care sector. And while health care is a necessary service, much of that job increase has been ‘padded out’ by union mandated jobs that don’t provide vital and needful services.

The Biden administration’s formula for job gains is government spending. But government spending provides nothing but a temporary boost in the market-based private sector. However, creating entitlements and boosting union rolls does create jobs. Unfortunately, those jobs tend to be a net loss and a severe drain on the economy. That's what Biden and New York did.

We're all paying the price.

Rather than rebuilding a healthy economy, Biden and the Democrats built a health care economy. Instead of creating manufacturing jobs, they manufactured jobs. And so we’re stuck in recession with persistent inflation and the only thing that’s booming is the explosive rate of government spending on propping up a fake economy that only benefits the government.

Islamic scholar who endorses Hamas, Hizballah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad lands job at Columbia University

Yeah, this is like posting that water is wet. Mohamed Abdou will fit right in at Columbia, and won’t meet any professors there who don’t share his point of view, or who dare to say so if they really do dissent. What would be news would be if Columbia or any other university hired an opponent of jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women. But that would never happen in a million years.

“He Endorsed Hamas, Hezbollah, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Then He Landed a Professorship at Columbia University.” By Jessica Costescu, Washington Free Beacon, February 27, 2024:

During a Jan. 5 interview with socialist podcast Revolutionary Left Radio, Islamic scholar Mohamed Abdou declared his support for Hamas and “the resistance.” The terror group’s “dedicated few,” he said admiringly, worked in “stealth mode” on Oct. 7 to defeat a “larger enemy” in Israel.

Just days later, on Jan. 16, Columbia University’s Middle East Institute extended a “warm welcome” to Abdou, the Ivy League school’s latest visiting professor in modern Arab studies.

As part of that role, Abdou teaches a weekly class on “Decolonial-Queerness & Abolition,” where his students discuss “transnational feminist discourses” and “queer of color critiques.” The self-described “Muslim anarchist” has also emerged as a friend to Columbia’s anti-Israel community. In a Feb. 11 social media post, Abdou revealed that he organized a protest in which Columbia students interrupted a panel featuring Hillary Clinton. One demonstrator called the former secretary of state a “war criminal” who “will burn” before chanting, “Free, free Palestine.”…

Abdou offered a more explicit endorsement of Hamas four days after the terrorist group’s attack on Israel. “Yes, I’m with the muqawamah (the resistance) be it Hamas and Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad,” he wrote in an Oct. 11 Facebook post, which also lamented “false reports accusing Arabs and Muslims of decapitating the heads of children and being rapists.” Months later, Abdou’s assessment remained the same.

“I might be with Hamas and support the resistance, absolutely,” the Columbia professor told Revolutionary Left Radio in January. “Look what 1,500 did … they were organized and they worked in stealth mode and they divested.”

“And nobody expected that this was the direction that Hamas and the Hamas leadership, or at least the political leadership, was going to take,” Abdou continued. “But look what the dedicated few [did] … how much a small group have defeated a larger enemy.”

Neither Columbia nor Abdou responded to requests for comment. Abdou’s role as a visiting professor will keep the Islamic scholar on Columbia’s campus through the spring 2024 semester. Abdou on his website acknowledges that the campus sits “on the ancestral and traditional homelands of the Lenni-Lenape and Wappinger peoples.”

While Abdou has already worked to organize anti-Israel protests at Columbia, he encourages those who oppose the Jewish state to go further.

“DON’T just go to Pro-Palestinian rallies DON’T just post on social media,” he wrote in November. “ORGANIZE revolutionary alternatives to capitalism & the state ON THE LAND you live alongside BIPOC kin who share similar anti-imperialist & anti-settler-colonial ETHICAL-POLITICAL commitments as YOU.”

The longest serving Senate leader in history, Mitch McConnell, is set to step down from his position in November.

McConnell (R-Ky.), announced the news on Wednesday afternoon in the well of the Senate. A place he first became acquainted to in 1985.

“One of life’s most underappreciated talents is to know when it’s time to move on to life’s next chapter,” he said in prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press. “So I stand before you today … to say that this will be my last term as Republican leader of the Senate.”

“As I have been thinking about when I would deliver some news to the Senate, I always imagined a moment when I had total clarity and peace about the sunset of my work,” McConnell said in his prepared remarks. “A moment when I am certain I have helped preserve the ideals I so strongly believe. It arrived today.”

While McConnell will be stepping down as the GOP leader, he plans to serve out his Senate term. It concludes in January 2027.

UNRWA must be shut down. If it continues after this, the entire UN should be shut down.

“More than 30 of UNRWA’s employees actively participated in October 7,” Jerusalem Post, February 16, 2024:

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced on Friday the details of 12 UNRWA employees who are members of Hamas and participated in the October 7 massacre.

Gallant told reporters that Israel has intelligence that more than 30 of the organization’s employees actively participated in the murder spree, assisting in the kidnapping of civilians and soldiers.

He presented data, according to which 12% of the 13,000 UNRWA employees are connected to terrorist organizations in Gaza, and 1,468 of the employees are even active in them.

Gallant presented a video to the reporters taken by security cameras at the Erez crossing on October 7, in which you can see how the medics of the Palestinian “Red Crescent” helped to evacuate a wounded Nukhba terrorist.

The UNRWA employees hold various innocuous positions in the organization from social worker to school counselor, to math teacher….

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Impeached

Mayorkas Impeached. The GOP-controlled House impeached Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas Tuesday after it rejected the effort earlier this month—making him only the second cabinet secretary in history, and the first since 1876, to be impeached. Republicans in support of impeaching Mayorkas allege he has intentionally disregarded the law and allowed migrants and drugs to enter the country. Wednesday’s hearing is titled, “Havoc in the Heartland: How Secretary Mayorkas’ Failed Leadership Has Impacted the States.” Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is at the heart of congested congressional traffic this week as House Republicans kick off their impeachment efforts against him and he remains knee-deep in negotiations with senators on a border package that has proven to be a tough lift. Mayorkas has been at the center of the GOP fury with the Biden administration’s handling of the border, which has seen month-over-month record numbers of illegal crossings. NYC Starts Blocking Migrant Buses. The city argues that knowingly sending migrants here “to overwhelm our social services system” violates New York State law, while Texas says the suit violates the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Migrants at shelters across New York City will be evicted starting Tuesday if they stayed for at least 60 days. Texas state Law Passes Allowing State Police to Arrest Immigrants. The Texas House passed legislation on Tuesday making it a state crime to illegally cross the southern border, empowering state and local police to arrest and in some cases deport illegal immigrants, in what the bill’s supporters claim is a response to federal inaction. Senate Bill 4 gives local and state government the authority to arrest illegal immigrants who enter Texas from Mexico between official ports of entry. Under SB 4, those who unlawfully cross the border can be charged with a state misdemeanor and face up to one year in prison. A felony charge, carrying a maximum sentence of 20 years, can be leveled if illegal immigrants are charged with additional crimes or don’t comply with a judge’s orders. The bill also authorizes state judges to deport illegal aliens to Mexico rather than pursue prosecution under federal law. After getting approval from the Texas senate last week, the latest version of SB 4 now heads to Republican governor Greg Abbott’s desk, where he is expected to sign it into law. #USImmigration #Impeachmed #Mayorkas #HouseImpeachesMayorkas #DHSSecretaryImpeached #HavocintheHeartland #ImmigrationArrest #NycMigrantCrisis #EntryBan #USCitizenship #Undocumented #USVisa #Deportation #SB4 #TexasMigrantArrest #USBorder #BorderCrisis #BorderCrossing #TrumpImmigration #RepublicansImpeachMayorkas Disclaimer: This channel is not owned by an any US Government Agency or an Immigration attorney.

Maryland: Muslim Teacher Says She’s Victim of Racism After She’s Suspended for Calling for Israel’s Disappearance Inbox

CAIR files discrimination lawsuit against Montgomery County Public Schools

A Muslim elementary school teacher in Maryland has filed a discrimination complaint after being suspended for using the phrase “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” as her email signature. More on the outraged, and outrageous, Hajur El-Haggan, can be found here: “Muslim school teacher says she’s victim of racism after being suspended for using ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ as her email signature,” by Emma Richter, DailyMail.com

A Muslim school teacher in Maryland said that she is a victim of racism after she was suspended for using ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ as her email signature.

Hajur El-Haggan, a math teacher at Argyle Middle School, was placed on administrative leave in November after she was told that her chosen signature was not allowed.

This was her school email, not her personal account. Students, parents, and fellow teachers would all be subjected, in their email correspondence with her, to this message: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

This phrase is a call for the establishment of a Palestinian state on all the land from the river Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea, and for the disappearance of the Jewish state. All of its Jewish inhabitants would be expelled or killedRightly understood, it is a call for ethnic cleansing, and the replacement of the only Jewish state by a twenty-third Arab one. It is understandable that the principal would not want one of his teachers displaying such a sentiment on a school account.

The Muslim and Arab-American teacher has since gone on to file a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Maryland Commission on Human Rights against Montgomery County Public Schools.

‘I have co-workers who have “Black Lives Matter” in their email signatures, or links to their pronouns and what they mean. My quote does not fall into a different category,’ El-Haggan told KUTV.

She is wrong. Her quote is in a different category. “Black Lives Matter” does not call for ethnic cleansing or the destruction of a state and its people. Phrases about pronouns that have to do with self-identification as non-binary, similarly, are not a threat to the existence of anyone. “From the river to the sea” is such a threat; it means politicide accompanied by ethnic cleansing.

The complaint stated that after she was reprimanded by the school’s principal about her email signature, she offered to take it down, but they [sic] proceeded to tell her that she would still be suspended.

Even if El-Haggan had taken down that email signature, that would not have changed the fact that she supports the disappearance of Israel, and the removal of all of the Jews living now “between the river and the sea.” Isn’t that the real “racism” that is involved here, and not her suspension? She was not suspended because she is a Muslim Arab, but because of her support for the ethnic cleansing of Jews “from the river to the sea.”

The discrimination complaint, which has also been filed with the local Fair Employment Practices Agency, said that El-Haggan and her colleagues at the school ‘hold certain personal and political views regarding various social injustices.’…

Would a teacher who had made known his, or her, support for the KKK, or for neo-Nazi groups, be allowed to continue as a teacher? El-Haggan’s views are not merely “political,” but rather, a call for the destruction of a country and the ethnic cleansing — some might even say the attempted “genocide” — of its people.

The complaint also noted that besides El-Haggan, other teachers in the middle school ‘expressed opinions about various political and social matters.’…

But none of her fellow teachers called for what amounts to ethnic cleansing. 

‘Just like here in America, we have “From sea to shining sea,” it’s no different. It’s a call for freedom, peace, basic rights, and humanity and coexistence,’ El-Haggan said….

No, Ms. Al-Haggan. They are not the same. “From sea to shining sea” is merely the geographical description of a country — America — that is being celebrated as “beautiful/from sea to shining sea.” “From the river to the sea” is not a call for “freedom, peace, basic rights, and humanity and coexistence,” but rather, a malevolent call for the destruction of a state and its people.

The complaint also said that that three days before she was placed on leave, the Palestinian flag in her car that said ‘Free Palestine was cut off of her vehicle and written on….

Did she promptly report this act? It would be strange – should raise a skeptical eyebrow – if she had not done so. Or was this claimed attack dreamed up later to support her lawsuit, suggesting that she was living in a hostile, anti-Palestinian, racist environment?

The phrase ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’ has long been seen as a call for destruction by the Jewish population, but for the Palestinian community and their supporters, it has been seen as a peaceful call for liberation.

No, that phrase is not seen as a “peaceful call for liberation” by the Palestinians. They know exactly what it means — the destruction of the Jewish state and the expulsion, or killing, of its Jewish population. In this hoped-for future state of “Palestine,” only Israeli Arabs would be allowed to remain.

There is speech that is beyond the pale. Calling for the destruction of a state and its people, because of their religion, is such speech. It is reasonable for the Montgomery County School Board to want to protect its students from such speech, directed at the only Jewish state, just as it would want to protect them from teachers found to endorse the KKK or neo-Nazis. El-Haggan and her lawyer hope to convince the judge that “from the river to the sea” is an innocuous call for “peace and liberation.” It is not. And the lawsuit will be determined by whether or not the judge, or possibly members of a jury, understand its malevolent significance.

Christian UPS driver takes on the corporation over extreme LGBT and anti-Christian work environment.

Confronted pro-LGBT Teamsters Union that was supposed to help him.

Filed multiple grievances with UPS, the union, and federal agencies EEOC & NLRB.

We need more like him across America.

When employees are at work in UPS facilities during Pride month, this is what is broadcast up above them.

As we all have seen, corporate America has become militantly pro-LGBT and anti-Christian over the past few decades. Unfortunately, most pro-family people who work for these companies have become too frightened (or compromised) to complain, much less fight for their rights.

This is the story of one man who decided he wouldn’t take it anymore, and fought back all the way to the top.

James Earls has worked at UPS for 35 years and is a devout Christian. He has received some of UPS’s highest awards for safety and loyalty. He is a driver of a large UPS “feeder truck.” He lives in Alabama and is represented by Teamsters Local 402. He recently brought the details of his efforts to MassResistance.

When most people think of anti-Christian and pro-LGBT companies, they think of Target, Amazon, Bank of America, the NFL, Delta Airlines, etc. But UPS is right up there with them. If you work there, you’re bombarded by the “woke” propaganda. However, since UPS is mostly not a “retail” operation, its huge support for anti-family causes is mostly hidden from view, so the public rarely sees that side of the company.

“Pride Month” at UPS

During the celebration of Gay Pride Month a few years ago, James entered the UPS facility in Madison, Alabama. UPS was showing its support and dedication to the LGBT movement by broadcasting images on all its large hanging TV monitors in various workstations, on its social media sites, and on the employee training computers throughout the building. If employees wanted to check on their benefits, paycheck, retirement funds, and other HR related information, they had no choice but to navigate through the images promoting LGBT pride.

ALT TEXT 
When employees log into their UPS portal, they get the constant propaganda.

In addition:

  • The UPS website featured several stories about “transgender” UPS employees who had undergone their “transition” procedures, and the company was actively promoting that agenda.
    ALT TEXT 
  • "Transgenders" get celebrated at UPS for "authenticity."
  • UPS runs an in-house Pride Alliance Business Resource Group to elevate LGBT employees within the company and fund their participation in LGBT events across the country.
  • Over the past two years the UPS Foundation has donated $1.2 million to advance the LGBT movement globally, including huge donations to the staunchly anti-Christian LGBT Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and StartOut. UPS proudly brags that HRC names UPS as one of the “best places to work for LGBTQ+ equality.”
  • In 2022, UPSers volunteered nearly 10,000 hours to support the LGBTQ+ community.
  • UPS partners with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce to fund and support “certified LGBTQ+ businesses” across America

But most disturbing, James told us, “I discovered a link to a company that UPS had partnered with and was promoting called GayPrideCalender.com. That site sold homosexual merchandise from a print-on-demand business site, Zazzle.com. On their website, they sold sickening, blasphemous items, including shirts that depicted Jesus Christ as a radical homosexual who seeks sex with men.”

UPS support for other horrible causes

James started looking closely at UPS’s other activities, and things looked even worse.

UPS is heavily invested in “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity” (DEI) throughout the company. It has created an internal Equity, Justice & Action Task Force to deal with “unconscious bias” among employees. The company president commissioned an enterprise-wide salary review to support “pay equity” based on race and other factors.

UPS’s charitable arm has funded Planned Parenthood in several states, numerous far-left churches (including a “gay” Catholic group), Black Lives Matter, the ACLU, SIECUS (which pushes radical sex ed in public schools), and other anti-Christian and anti-American causes.

UPS is also a partner of the World Economic Forum and agrees with its “climate crisis” outlook.

All of this reveals UPS management’s orchestration of a frighteningly hostile climate of discrimination against Christians, conservative Americans, and white males in general that everyone (except James) was afraid to address.

UPS claims to support its employees’ civil rights

Interestingly, UPS has numerous company-wide policies that purport to protect its employees’ civil rights. But they’re basically just a smokescreen for doing the opposite.

For example, the company states that it supports the United Nations’ “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights,” which strictly guarantee “social and cultural freedom,” and the right to be treated “with dignity and without discrimination” regarding religion and sex.

There are also “Zero Tolerance” postings in UPS buildings which state: “Don’t display offensive language, symbols or images on your personal belongings or on company property ... If you experience discrimination, sexual or racial misconduct, use our Open Door Policy to raise issues with your management team.”

So James fights back!

The company was clearly breaking its own rules, particularly during “Pride Month.” Someone needed the guts to test UPS’s obvious hypocrisy. James had had enough. And he wasn’t afraid. He decided to formally complain and demand UPS follow its own rules – through whatever manner he could find.

1. Contacting officials. As James told us, “To bring resolution to this with no further unpleasantries, I first tried to use UPS’s Open Door Policy and contacted UPS’s CEO, Carol Tomé, along with local Teamsters 402 General President Sean O’Brien about these issues.” But nothing came of that.

2. Filing grievances through the union. Since he was represented by the Teamsters Union Local 402, he filed four separate grievances through them, as laid out in the company’s collective bargaining agreement, directly addressing various aspects of the problem.

Unfortunately (as many of us know), the Teamsters long ago embraced the LGBT agenda and other leftist, anti-American ideologies. When the formal hearing for James’s grievances took place – with a room full of representatives from the UPS and the union – James was shocked. Not only did the union not advocate for him, but they treated him with hostility, as did the UPS representatives there. One union rep nastily said to James at the hearing, “If working at UPS was so bad, why continue to work there?” James lashed back at him. As he told us:

It got ugly real quick. I told him that I had a right to work in a hostile-free environment just as much as their beloved homosexual employees did. I told him that I have a right to work there and that I want to work in a place that is free from this hatred towards Christian employees.

ALT TEXT 
Unfortunately, this is the face of the Teamsters Union these days.

Not surprisingly, James later received a letter from the union telling him that all of his grievances were denied.

But James really got their attention like no other employee had! He stood up and clearly presented his evidence for all the grievances, describing in detail what UPS was doing to its employees – to the stone faces of the union and company officials.

3. Formal NLRB complaint against the union.  A few days after receiving the letter from the union denying his grievances, James filed a formal complaint with the National Labor Relations Board against the Teamsters Union. He cited the hostility towards him by his union at the hearing, and their inappropriate behavior which clearly showed that he was not being fairly represented. The NLRB acknowledged receiving the complaint but ultimately took no action, though surely the union was made aware of it.

4. Formal complaint filed with federal EEOC. The day after James filed the NLRB complaint, James filed a discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). He cited Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which bans religious discrimination in the workplace. He described how UPS is maintaining a hostile workplace by promoting the homosexual culture and images that mock the Christian faith – but denies equal time for Christian culture and imagery anywhere at the company. Similarly, the EEOC acknowledged receiving the complaint but took no action, though surely UPS was made aware of it.

Here’s the result …

Moving a massive worldwide corporation like UPS is too big a task for one man. But James did make a difference. The website link to the disgusting anti-Christian LGBT merchandise and pride event calendar was taken down and has not re-appeared.

And James has not suffered any retribution from anyone at the company, in any form. They obviously know that he means business and will never back down!

Final thoughts

A big reason why we all suffer from the corporate promotion of perversion is that too many employees are afraid to stand up for what’s right. America needs more men like James Earls!

Biden Administration Antisemites Plan Massive Walkout

AP Photo/Nathan Howard
Hundreds of Biden Administration employees are planning a walkout on Tuesday.

According to organizers from a group called "Feds United for Peace," government workers across 22 departments intend to walk out of their jobs to protest the Biden administration's stance on the Israel-Hamas war.

The group objects to Joe Biden refusing to send aid to Gaza (even though he did) while sending roughly $14 billion in aid to Israel, as well as military support. The planned walkout is part of a planned "Day of Mourning" to mark the 100th day of Israel's military operation in Gaza.

The New York Post has more.

The organizers of Tuesday’s expected protest told AL-Monitor they believe “hundreds” of other workers will join after staffers from 22 federal agencies pledged to walk out.

The workers include employees of the Executive Office of the President; the departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs; as well as the National Security Agency, the outlet reported.

Additionally, members of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Naval Research Laboratory, the National Park Service, the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency are also expected to protest during the work day, per the outlet.

“What you’re seeing with this effort is something very unusual, and that is for the dissent to be manifested via a physical act,” one organizer told AL-Monitor.

Joe Biden hasn’t actually been the best ally to Israel. The Biden administration reportedly tried to cover up that it knew about the planned assault on Israel. Biden repeatedly sought to get Israel to postpone its ground assault in Gaza, even forcing a delay by not having adequate defenses in place at U.S. military installations in the area.

Despite these facts, his public support of Israel over Hamas has undoubtedly hurt his poll numbers among antisemitic Democratic voters. After expressing unwavering support for Israel following the Hamas attack, Gallup reported a double-digit decline in support from his base. His approval ratings also hit all-time lows in various polls, mostly due to bipartisan disapproval of his handling of the Israel-Hamas war.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has issued a warning to any government worker thinking of walking off the job: don’t.

"Any government worker who walks off the job to protest U.S. support for our ally Israel is ignoring their responsibility and abusing the trust of taxpayers,” he said in a post on X/Twitter. "They deserve to be fired."

Johnson added, "Oversight Chairman Comer and I will be working together to ensure that each federal agency initiates appropriate disciplinary proceedings against any person who walks out on their job."

This planned walkout is just the latest effort to compel Biden to change his policy toward Israel. Earlier this month, a group of Biden campaign staffers published an open letter on Medium urging Joe Biden to establish a "permanent ceasefire" between Israel and Hamas. They also demanded that he advocate for de-escalation, end unconditional military aid to Israel, investigate Israel for human rights violations, and "take concrete steps to end the conditions of apartheid, occupation, and ethnic cleansing that are the root causes of this conflict."

The letter also warned Biden that failure to change his policy would threaten his chances for reelection. Two Biden officials have also resigned.

Italy: Catholic Church funds illegal migration, activists brag about not having to work due to Church donations

The Catholic Church is funding the demise of what is left of Catholic Europe. Interesting times we live in.

“‘The Catholic Church is becoming our Soros’ – Growing scandal around Italian Catholic Church funding illegal immigration, pro-refugee activists brag about not having to work due to Church donations,” by Grzegorz Adamczyk, Remix News, December 18, 2023:

A significant scandal has recently shaken the Catholic Church in Italy, as reported by La Verita Italian paper. Investigations by the city of Ragusa prosecutor’s office have exposed the involvement of certain Italian dioceses in funding Mediterranea, an organization responsible for the illegal migration of African immigrants to Europe.

These dioceses have allegedly contributed at least €2 million, with some of the Church’s payments ending up in the personal accounts of pro-immigration activists, according to Polish newspaper wPolityce.

Key figures in this informal network of bishops include Cardinal Matteo Zuppi of Bologna, Archbishop Corrado Lorefice of Palermo and several others, with Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich of Luxembourg also implicated for donating €25,000.

The scandal’s central figure is Luca Casarini, a leftist activist known for his role in the 2001 G8 summit protests in Genoa. He later became involved in transporting illegal immigrants to Lampedusa. Casarini’s relationship with Pope Francis, beginning in December 2019, has raised eyebrows, especially after Francis invited Casarini to participate in the Vatican Synod of Bishops, despite his lack of active involvement in Church life….

The chaplain of the Mare Jonio, Fr. Mattia Ferrari, a priest known for working in pro-refugee circles, said with astonishment: “The Catholic Church is becoming our Soros,” in reference to the funding they were receiving.

Commentators are debating whether these bishops acted independently or under Pope Francis’ direction, with most leaning towards the former. Their actions, aimed at aligning with the pope’s perceived interests, might result in decreased donations from parishioners and damage the bishops’ credibility….

A lawsuit filed by a Virginia teacher who was fired for refusing to use a transgender student’s preferred pronouns was reinstated.

The student in question is a biological woman who identifies as a transgender man.

On Thursday, the state’s Supreme Court announced the reinstatement of the lawsuit.

After being fired in 2018, Peter Vlaming, a former French teacher at West Point High School, filed a lawsuit against the school board and its administrators. 

Before any evidence was considered in the case, a judge dismissed the lawsuit. However, the Supreme Court reversed that decision and declared that the lawsuit could go to trial.

Vlaming had used the student’s masculine name but refrained from using their preferred pronouns of “he” and “him,” according to his claims in the lawsuit.

Later, the student’s parents and the school informed him that he must use the student’s preferred male pronouns and that there would be problems if he ignored their request.

Because of his “sincerely held religious and philosophical” views that “each person’s sex is biologically fixed and cannot be changed,” Vlaming asserted that he was morally unable to use the student’s pronouns. Additionally, Vlaming claimed that using the student’s pronouns “would be a lie.”

Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative Christian legal advocacy group, filed the lawsuit on his behalf, alleging that the school had violated his constitutional rights to free speech and religious practice.

Vlaming, according to the school board, broke the anti-discrimination policy of the institution.

Two of Vlaming’s claims, namely that his right to freely exercise his religion was violated under the Virginia constitution and his claim of breach of contract against the school board, should go to trial, which the seven justices of the state Supreme Court agreed upon.

Justice D. Arthur Kelsy wrote in the majority opinion that “absent a truly compelling reason for doing so, no government committed to these principles can lawfully coerce its citizens into pledging verbal allegiance to ideological views that violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.”

However, the court disagreed on a few points regarding the lawsuit.

Along with two other justices, Justice Thomas Mann dissentingly stated that the majority’s ruling on Vlaming’s claim of freedom of religion was expansive and “establishes a sweeping super scrutiny standard with the potential to shield any person’s objection to practically any policy or law by claiming a religious justification for their failure to follow either.”

Samantha Pearson, Head of Sexual Assault Center, Fired For Denying Hamas Nazis Committed Any Rapes

Sensitivity to rape accusations - except when Jews are the victims.

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.


Samantha Pearson was until Nov. 18 the head of the Sexual Assault Center at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. It was on that day that she was fired, after having signed an open letter denying that members of Hamas committed any rapes on October 7. This claim was made despite the videos of near-naked women being driven off in the back of trucks by Hamas, despite the testimony of Israeli survivors who witnessed rapes from their hiding places, and despite the videos taken by the rapists themselves, or by Hamas onlookers who wanted to record the rapes by their friends, and despite the testimony of captured Hamas operatives to their Israeli interrogators.. More on the execrable Samantha Pearson can be found here: “University fires head of the sex assault center who signed letter denying Oct. 7 rapes, Times of IsraelNovember 19, 2023:

The University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, indicated in a statement on Saturday that it had fired the head of the campus sexual assault center who signed onto an open letter denying Hamas-led terrorists raped women during their devastating October 7 onslaught in southern Israel.

Samantha Pearson signed the letter, titled “Stand with Palestine: Call on Political Leaders to End Their Complicity in Genocide,” which slammed center-left New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh for repeating “the unverified accusation that Palestinians were guilty of sexual violence,” among other critiques of the lawmaker on the issue….

What “unverified accusation” are those who signed this dreadful letter alluding to? Not only does the IDF have videos of some of those rapes, taken both by the rapists themselves and by their friends, but it also has the eyewitness testimony of survivors, who from their hideouts saw both rapes and gang rapes being committed. The naked and often mutilated corpses of rape victims were strewn about, some with their breasts slit off (Hamas members had fun playing catch with a severed breast), dried semen still on their bodies. One witness saw a rapist who, while still inside his victim, shot her in the head. The Hamas rapists also telephoned their families to excitedly tell of their great deeds (“Mom, I killed ten Jews”), and telephoned their friends to describe what fun they had had raping Jewish girls. Hamas members captured by the IDF admitted that the leaders of the group had “given permission” for the rapes. None of this — not the videos made by Hamas members recording the rapes committed by themselves or by fellow terrorists, not the testimony given both by Israeli survivors and by captured Hamas members, not the forensic evidence (semen, bruises at the sites of entry, mutilations) — has made the slightest impression on Samantha Pearson.

The letter was authored by Susan Kim, a city councilor in Victoria, and Sarah Jama, a member of Ontario’s provincial parliament who was booted from the NDP [New Democratic Party] over remarks only three days after the October 7 massacre calling Israel an “apartheid” state while ignoring Hamas’s atrocities.

In a letter posted to X, the University of Alberta said “The recent improper and unauthorized use of the name of the [university]’s Sexual Assault Centre in endorsing an open letter has raised understandable concerns from members of our community and the public.”

“Effective immediately, the director of the centre is no longer employed by the university,” the letter read. A new interim director was appointed to head the campus sexual assault center, the university said.

“I want to be clear that the former employee’s personal views and opinions do not in any way represent those of the University of Alberta,” wrote university president Bill Flanagan. “The University of Alberta stands firmly and unequivocally against discrimination and hatred on the basis of religion, race, ethnicity, national origin, and other protected categories. We recognize the historical and ongoing harms of antisemitism and commit to doing all we can as a university to advance a world free of prejudice and discrimination.”

Flanagan said the event has been “profoundly hurtful and may have compromised the trust of individuals in our community” and also negatively impacted the critical nature of the assault center’s work.

“On behalf of the university, I apologize for the hurt and distress this issue has caused members of our community and beyond,” he said….

In a recent video, Sarah Jama [the co-author of the letter]also expressed her skepticism of Hamas atrocities, claiming “there is no actual evidence of these rapes and the babies with their heads cut off — all these things are pieces of misinformation.”

This is simply a lie. The “actual evidence” consists of eyewitness testimony, both from Hamas operatives captured, and interrogated, by the IDF, and from Israeli survivors who saw rapes in progress; videos of the rapes taken by members of Hamas filming their friends enjoying themselves, and by the forensic evidence —such as wounds around the vagina and anus suggesting forcible entry, as well as dried semen.

“So I think it shows the strength of the Zionist lobby here in Canada and the ways in which they were able to pressure an entire government operation to censure me indefinitely until I apologized,” she [Jama] said in a video shared by @AntisemitismCA.

Ah, ever the victim. Sarah Jama, the co-author of the letter denying rapes by Hamas and accusing Israel of “genocide,” thinks she should not have suffered any consequences for that letter. Others beg to differ. But she claims, grotesquely, that the “Zionist lobby” (Jama’s antisemitism is showing) was “able to pressure an entire government operation to censure me indefinitely.” There has been no censure — “indefinitely” — of Sarah Jama “by the government.” The political party to which she belonged — the New Democratic Party — decided to expel her from its ranks. That is all. She can join another party. She can run as an independent. What’s her problem?

Jama’s letter, signed by several pro-Palestinian and progressive groups, called on Canada’s federal lawmakers to resign for “facilitating Israeli-led genocide” against the Palestinians, without providing evidence of the claim.

Israeli-led genocide? It is Hamas that gave a demonstration of an authentic genocidal attempt on October 7, torturing, raping, murdering without stop as many Jews as it could. It is the IDF that, in fighting Hamas, takes every conceivable measure to minimize civilian deaths — that is, to avoid any hint of “genocide.” First, the IDF has dropped 1.5 million leaflets warning civilians in northern Gaza to seek refuge beyond the Wadi Gaza, in the southern part of the Strip. Second, when a civilian building — whether a school, an apartment building, a mosque, or some other structure — is about to be targeted, the IDF warns inhabitants to leave those sites. It does this by messaging, telephoning, leafletting, and by use of the “knock-on-the-roof” technique. No other army in the world warns its enemy of impending strikes. It is this practice that led British Colonel Richard Kemp to describe the IDF as “the most moral army in the world.”

The letter [signed by Samantha Pearson] slams lawmakers for “failing to recognize Israeli occupation as ‘terrorist’ and only directing this term at Palestinian resistance,” arguing they “perpetuate an Islamophobic trope.”

“Your language is fueling the collective trauma being experienced by your constituents, and inciting hate crimes against Palestinians and Muslims,” the letter read.

But Hamas is a terrorist organization. It has been recognized as such by most of the advanced world. Should we not describe Haas as a terrorist group because, claim this appalling letter’s signatories, it could “incite hate crimes”? Since October 7, there have been thousands of antisemitic acts and attacks across Europe and North America. Can you name more than a handful of “hate crimes” against Muslims in that time? I can only think of one — the killing of a five-year-old Muslim boy by his mother’s landlord, Joseph Czuba, who looks completely demented. There have been a few ballyhooed “attacks on Muslims” that upon investigation turned out to have been committed by Muslims themselves, wanting to swell the number of “anti-Muslim hate crimes.”

It’s always heartwarming to hear when some virulent anti-Israel “activist” goes just too far, is just too absurd, in his, or her, venomous attack on the tiny Jewish state, and loses a job as a result. It’s now happened to Samantha Pearson of Edmonton, Alberta. She was the head of the Sexual Assault Center at the university, but despite that position, which ought to have led her to display a heightened sensitivity to accusations of rape, she was determined not to believe the accounts of rape when the victims were Israeli, and the rapists' members of Hamas. Perhaps she can take her politically-charged expertise in “sexual assault” to someplace more welcoming, such as Al-Quds, or Bir Zeit, two universities where, I am certain, she should do just fine.

NSA Goes Full Woke, Pushes CRT and Transgender Ideology on Employees

AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File
For the Biden administration, it’s far more important for our intelligence agencies to be concerned with pronouns and "white fragility” than monitoring foreign or domestic threats against our country. 

Last year, the National Security Agency (NSA) published a 34-page Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion glossary, which was recently obtained and verified by The Daily Wire. It’s a disturbing compilation of terms associated with woke ideology for its employees to follow. 

Lord knows we won’t make the mistake of taking out the next Osama bin Laden without first knowing what his preferred pronouns are, so as not to misgender him/her/they.

"The leaked, unclassified NSA document identifies itself as a 'a glossary of terms and language commonly used in dialogue regarding diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice' and cites radical Critical Race Theory educators such as Robin DiAngelo and Ibram X. Kendi,” The Daily Wire reports. "There’s also ‘whiteness,' which the agency defines as a 'broad social construction that embraces the white culture, history, ideology, racialization, expressions, experiences, epistemology, emotions and behaviors,' all in order to reap “'material political, economic, and structural benefits for those socially deemed white.’"

Feel safer yet? It gets even better.

But the agency, which has been sharply criticized for its mass surveillance operations on American citizens, goes beyond openly endorsing the extreme tenets of Critical Race Theory with its glossary — it pushes queer theory as an approach that “critically deconstructs and challenges binaries such as male and female or heterosexual and homosexual.”

The DEI glossary goes on to list a plethora of different vocab words associated with queer theory like “transmisogyny,” which it defines as the “intersection of transphobia and misogyny.”

The glossary includes definitions for stupid fantasy pronouns like "ze" and "zir,” and terms like "two spirit.” Then there’s an entry for "genderqueer," "AFAB/AMAB" denoting assigned gender at birth, "Latinx," and "same gender loving,” which is a new one I haven’t heard before.

There’s even a definition for DACA in the glossary, for some reason.

Exclusively for our VIPs: Is This Revelation About DeSantis Disqualifying?

Rep. Mike Waltz (R-Fla.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was utterly shocked at the indoctrination happening in such a powerful military agency. “I just can’t overemphasize how shocking this is,” Waltz, a veteran, told The Daily Wire. “I’m a member of the Intelligence Committee in the House and it is an authentic document.”

“This isn’t some kind of diversity document, with terms like white fragility and definitions of whiteness and ‘ze’ and ‘zir’ in, say, the Small Business Administration,” Waltz said. “This is the NSA, the National Security Agency, one of the most powerful agencies in the world, that the world has ever seen.”
