"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it." -- Aldous Huxley - "The Ultimate Revolution". Aldous Huxley's speech at Berkeley Language Center, www.informationclearinghouse.info. March 20, 1962.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) unleashed a tirade aimed at President Joe Biden and Democrats on Tuesday, accusing them of playing the race card at the southern border because it was the only card they had.

The three men allegedly set up a holding company, and took over another, then manipulated the value of the two companies through coordinated stock trading and market consolidation to take millions of dollars in profit. The Securities and Exchange Commission is also suing the defendants in civil court.
Let’s call a spade a spade: Joe Biden’s America stinks on ice. And it is likely to get even worse as Bidenflation is hurting your ability to give out gifts at Christmas this year.
Ryan Samsel was arrested in January 2021. He was blinded by DC prison guards in one of his many beatings since his arrest.
Ryan Samsel attended the January 6, 2021, protests in Washington DC.
Samsel pushed the flimsy bike racks and stormed the US Capitol after Ray Epps was seen whispering in his ear. Samsel allegedly injured a female police officer.
Since his arrest, Ryan Samsel has been held in a Washington DC prison. On March 21, 2021, Ryan was awakened by correctional officers and his hands were zip-tied. Then they walked him to an unoccupied cell where he was brutally beaten by the officers. Ryan Samsel lost an eye in the beating. His face was smashed. The next day the guards beat him again.
In July 2021 Ryan’s attorney Joseph McBride joined Greg Kelly on Newsmax to reveal the unbelievable abuse of the Jan. 6 political prisoners in Washington DC.
This was not an isolated incident.
This is happening in America today.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Tuesday that being president may give former President Donald Trump immunity in a defamation case brought by a woman that claimed he raped her in the 1990s due to him being a government employee.
E. Jean Carroll filed a defamation suit against Trump in 2019 after he publicly denied her claim that he raped her in the mid-1990s while she was in a department store dressing room, Reuters reported.
The former president told reporters at the time that Carroll wasn’t "my type," and that she made up the accusation, which was featured in a book she published while he was president.
Trump denied the claims and asserted in court documents that Carroll could not sue him for defamation because he was president at the time.

President Joe Biden (D) finally reached out to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) Tuesday night after facing backlash throughout the day for not being in touch with the governor ahead of Hurricane Ian’s landfall on the state.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed a reporter Tuesday afternoon for apparently trying to politicize the hurricane that is anticipated to hit the state.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, explaining the reasons behind his country’s refusal to negotiate with Moscow, compared Russia to an insatiable “cachalot” who would not understand the language of diplomacy.
In a Friday interview with the Wall Street Journal, Zelensky responded to the recent remarks of his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, who said earlier this week that Russia and Ukraine could have ended their conflict in March if Kiev had not withdrawn from negotiations.
Calling this statement “total delirium,” the Ukrainian leader said that, prior to Moscow’s offensive, he had been trying to talk to Putin for a long time but he couldn’t be bothered to take a phone call.
It’s been two and a half years since the onset of the COVID pandemic forced millions of American workers out of the office, and white-collar workers at Michigan-based automaker General Motors remain unconvinced they should return to in-person work.
A Polish politician, who is married to American leftist writer Anne Applebaum, ignited a firestorm on social media this week by suggesting that the United States was behind the damage to Russia’s Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Baltic Sea this week.
Among more than a dozen abortion and so-called reproductive health bills California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Tuesday, one piece of legislation has pro-life advocates sick to their stomachs.
Entrepreneur Elon Musk suggested this week that he was potentially interested in working with an alternative platform to YouTube after the left-wing tech company reportedly censored actor Russell Brand this week.
Sixty-three additional documents or photographs without classification markings were taken from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort than previously listed by the FBI, according to an updated inventory list.
The revised inventory was submitted to the federal court in southern Florida on orders from U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie, a Reagan appointee who was inserted into the case as a special master, or an independent third party to handle disputes and other matters.
Dearie ordered a government official “with sufficient knowledge of the matter” to submit a declaration or affidavit stating whether the detailed property inventory released on Sept. 2 “represents the full and accurate extent of the property seized from” Trump’s home in August when FBI agents executed a search warrant there.
Webmaster addition: Let me guess; one of those "new" documents proves Trump molested an entire orphanage full of children while high on polydichloric euthimal or somesuch.
The coalition includes 30 different groups and institutions merged to investigate how to leverage Web3 tech like cryptocurrencies and blockchain to help the world become carbon neutral.
“An important and unique aspect of Web3 is that it uses technology to support and reward direct community engagement and action,” said WEF head of digital assets Brynly Llyr.
The coalition will examine how to add “carbon credits” to the blockchain. Partners include Accenture, the Crypto Council for Innovation, Rainforest Partnership, the Sustainable Bitcoin Standard, Zero Labs and others.
The WEF has been scrutinized for promoting the COVID-19 pandemic to achieve a “great reset” where global economies use private and public organizations to fight climate change.
During this year’s forum, WEF speaker and Norwegian Finance CEO Kjerstin Braathen said people should expect “pain” and “energy shortages” as the world pursues the WEF’s climate change agenda.
“We need to accept that there will be some pain in the process,” Braathen said.
“The pace that we need [to end climate change] will open up for missteps. It will open up for shortages of energy. It will create inflationary pressures, and maybe we need to start talking about that — that pain is actually worth it.”
“Because if we don’t, there’s no business case; there’s no economy; there’s no welfare. But so far, I think we have been a little bit careful actually talking about the pain in the short term that is likely to come from this very important change.”
European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen confirmed the Nord Stream pipeline system leaks were caused by "sabotage," and warned of the "strongest possible response" should active European energy infrastructure be attacked.
Earlier, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen described the three separate leaks on NS1 and NS2 as "deliberate acts," adding: "It’s hard to imagine that it’s accidental."
On Monday, Swedish seismologists reported the detection of underwater explosions - shortly after which large patches of roiling gas could be seen on the surface in the same area.
As rumors swirl over who is responsible for the incident, one message it sent was clear - vital systems are vulnerable to attack.
"The most important message that somebody wants to send, is what one is capable of doing with an offline pipeline can also be done with active pipelines, or undersea cables, or other infrastructure," said Julian Pawlak, a researcher at the German Institute for Defense and Strategic Studies, in a statement to the NY Times.
In response, Denmark and Norway announced increased security around their energy infrastructure, and Norway, now Europe’s most important producer of gas and oil, called for “increased vigilance by all operators and vessel owners.” In a statement, Norway’s energy minister, Terje Aasland, cited “reports of increased drone activity” around its coast, and said that much of what he had learned of the Nord Stream incidents “indicates acts of sabotage.” -NY Times
Heavily armed protestors with differing opinions on transgenderism fought with one another via megaphone in front of First Christian Church in Katy, Texas, where a drag queen bingo fundraiser was being held.
The event was held to fund a thrift store for transgender teens, and young adults called Transparent Closet. Guests of all ages were welcome to attend.
The tension on the streets of Katy, Texas, was so thick it couldn’t have been cut with grandma’s trusty butcher knife. On one side of the street, people held signs like the one that read, “No adult entertainers for children. It’s inappropriate for children.”
People held signs supporting the event on the opposite side of the street. One person compared dressing in drag to wearing Halloween costumes and did not feel the event was harmful to children.
The mother of a 13-year-old LAUSD student says she’s now suing the district for vaccinating her student without her consent, claiming the school also bribed him with pizza.
"He said, 'yeah, they offered me pizza,'" Maribel Duarte said.
Duarte first spoke to NBCLA about her son Moises back in December 2021 in front of Barack Obama Global Prep Academy in South Los Angeles, where she says he told her he was given pizza in exchange for getting a COVID-19 vaccination shot, and told to forge his mother’s name on a consent form.
"If I already know all the problems he has, why am going to let him allow him to get that shot?" Duarte said.
Duarte claims the shot re-awakened her son’s childhood asthma and bleeding condition. While next to her lawyer Wednesday, Duarte said she’s now suing the LAUSD, saying that even though she got the vaccine, she didn’t want it for her son.
"This is not a conspiracy theory. This is not an anti-vax case. This is about parental rights about having the ability to protect your children," attorney Nicole Pearson said.
CNN’s Don Lemon repeatedly tried to get the National Hurricane Center’s new acting director on Tuesday night to link Hurricane Ian to climate change, and he was not expecting the response that he received.

After releasing a first-of-its-kind report earlier this year that examined slavery in the U.S. and the lingering effects on African Americans, the California Reparations Task Force is holding a two-day public hearing this weekend to discuss reparations.
Assembly Bill 3121 (AB 3121) was enacted in September 2020 and allows the task force to study and develop reparation proposals for African Americans.
The task force would create a proposal if the State Legislature ultimately creates a law that would provide reparations.
"We're looking at not only what caused slavery but more important, the impact slavery has had on African Americans," said State Assemblyman and member of the task force Reginald Jones-Sawyer during Friday's meeting.
He says the two days of hearings allows the public to farther weigh in on the different aspects of reparations.
Dozens of members of The Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt Pistol & Rifle Gun Club marched in Austin, Texas on Sunday chanting anti-immigrant slogans and demanding reparations.
The black activists chanted, “Take your a$$ home!” and “Guns up, Shoot back!”
The gun club members want Joe Biden to close the border.
Democrats are going to have a problem with that one.
Here are a few videos from the rally this weekend.
Americans oppose President Joe Biden’s lawless and wage-cutting mass migration because they are racist, not because of their economic worries, according to former President Barack Obama.
“Right now, the biggest fuel behind the Republican agenda is related to immigration and the fear that somehow America’s character is going to be changed if, people of darker shades, there are too many of them here,” Obama told a meeting of Hispanic realtors on September 25 in San Diego, California.
Obama used his divide-and-rule claims of racism to hide the public opposition to migration’s economic impact, according to his comments posted in a September 25 report by the San Diego Union-Tribune:
I wish I could be more euphemistic about it except [they’re] not that subtle about it — they’re just kind of saying it,” Obama said. “You hear it on hard-right media, you hear it from candidates and politicians, you hear things like ‘great replacement theory’ — I mean, this is not subtle. Unless we’re able to return to a more inclusive vision inside the Republican Party, it’s going to be hard to get a bill done.
Webmaster addition: 'Illegal' is not a race, Barack!
The Democrats’ massive climate spending and tax bill gave the Department of Agriculture (USDA) $2.2 billion in loans to pay farmers, many of whom are black, who have previously been denied USDA loans due to discrimination.
The provision, which was backed by Democratic Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Raphael Warnock of Georgia, is intended to provide financial assistance to farmers, ranchers or forest landowners that the department determines to have experienced discrimination in USDA farm lending programs before Jan. 1. 2021, according to the bill’s text. Although the funding could go to any farmer that the government has discriminated against, such as white women or members of the LGBTQ community, the money is primarily intended to rectify the historic denial of loans to black farmers, accordingto The Wall Street Journal.
Another of the bill’s provisions will allocate $3.1 to help farmers of any race who are facing financial hardship and also have a direct or guaranteed loan with the USDA. Democrats quietly abandoned their original plan in August to give $4 billion to black farmers as part of the March 2021 Covid relief bill after white farmers filed a lawsuit against the funding, saying it was unconstitutional to exclude white farmers based on race, according to Bloomberg Law.
