"I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness...<p>The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance" -- Carl Sagan
This northern Mexican city across from California is one of the latest to go live with an unreported, legally questionable new immigration strategy that President Joe Biden’s administration has discretely unfurled for months all along the U.S. southern border.
Twice a day, seven days a week since September, Mexicali city officials working closely with Biden’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection, on a secure shared “CBP-ONE” online platform, select hundreds of people a month for their escorted government-to-government handoffs through the land port of entry to Calexico, Calif. Once the Americans check their paperwork, they legally admit intending illegal border crossers like Nicaraguan Maria Esperanza Diaz Ruiz, 42, into the U.S. interior under a questionable authority known as “humanitarian or significant public benefit parole.”
They are free to start new lives under the benefit, with work authorization and the right to apply for asylum part of the package.
As she waited with 25 other selected immigrants for her legal ride to America, Maria told the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) she’d left home figuring she would have to pay smugglers to cross her over the border illegally. But up-trail word from friends reached her down-trail by cell phone that the Biden administration had legally admitted them and many others from Mexicali under the new humanitarian parole program.
They told Maria, “This is real. This is really a real program. This is not a magic trick,” she told CIS.
Democratic Representative Adam Schiff said in an interview on Sunday morning that under Republican leadership the House of Representatives would be 'chaos'.
Schiff, known for his melodramatic pronouncements, made the apocalyptic prediction when asked about his potential removal from the House Intelligence Committee, which he currently chairs, in an interview on ABC News's This Week.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is calling for companies to “immediately pause all advertising” on Twitter in response to former President Donald Trump being reinstated.
Lost in the whirlwind of midterm election news last week was an announcement that not only will Washington send $400 million worth of additional weapons to Ukraine, but it is pushing forward with a new joint forces command, to be stationed in Germany, to “handle weapons shipments and personnel training.”
According to the Department of Defense, the new command, which was previously reported this summer, will be officially called the Security Assistance Group Ukraine, or SAGU, and will be based out of U.S. Army Europe and Africa headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany. It will be a led by a 3-star general.
The command will involve 300 U.S. military personnel but will likely work closely with U.S. Army Europe and Africa’s training center in Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels as well as the service’s garrison in Baumholder. In addition, “the thousands of U.S. soldiers now positioned at training areas in Poland and Romania … could factor into the plans,” Stars & Stripes reported.
A biological male struggles to win races against his male competitors.
He finishes the races but with embarrassing results. However, now that he’s allowed to compete against women, this biological male is winning one race after another. The way this is happening is sickening.
Fox News reports, “The Seattle Academy student, a 5,000-meter runner, has two victories so far. These include one in a conference championship. The student also enjoyed three top-two finishes in eight races this season and has not finished worse than 22nd place. When identifying as a male, the student never finished ahead of 25th place.”
Fox explained the drastic differences between this teen competing as a male and now as a female. Fox says, “In last year’s Emerald South Conference Championships, the student identified as a male for the competition. He finished in 72nd place in the boy’s division with a 20:40.6 time. This year, the student is competing as a girl. As a result, she finished in first place with a time of 19:14.5. She set a new school record.”
Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell reveals that he was involved in shady business deals, earning him millions of dollars to support his extreme lifestyle involving drugs and hookers.
However, there are quite a few ways President Biden contributed to this with backroom business deals of his own.
The Post Millennial reports, “Revelations from Hunter Biden’s laptop prove that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was engaged in suspicious business partnerships in Ukraine that lasted for years. Business deals include deals that reportedly resulted in astounding financial kickbacks to now President Joe Biden. Emails discovered have confirmed Hunter Biden earned more than $11 million from a combination of Chinese and Ukrainian business deals over 5 years. This year President Biden sold approximately 1 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Reserves. This oil went to a Chinese company in which Hunter Biden invested.”
Even by western New York standards, Friday’s snowstorm was colossal, bringing eye-level accumulation totals to some areas and prompting officials to tell many people who are used to driving in bad weather to stay off the roads.
“I can say that our deputies have been just absolutely inundated with calls for service as it pertains to disabled motor vehicles and stranded motorists,” Erie County Undersheriff William J. Cooley said at a news conference Friday night as heavy, wet snow continued to fall. “We implore the residents to just, please, obey the travel ban, you become part of the problem very quickly when you’re out there on the streets.”
Snowfall totals reached 5 feet in at least two locations. Orchard Park, where the Buffalo Bills had been scheduled to play their now-relocated NFL game Sunday, had snowfall totals of up to 66 inches by Friday evening. Blasdell, about eight miles from Buffalo, recorded 65 inches as of 8:30 p.m.
America’s two best journalists, Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi, both come from the left, and Greenwald is homosexual. Both have been evicted from their positions and Greenwald was even forced out of the Internet media company that he created. The reason is that they told the truth and would not lie for the Democrats and Woke anti-Constitutional left that is determined to impose on Americans the same speech and thought control that characterizes Big Brother’s regime in George Orwell’s 1984.
1984 is now the American and the Western world. We are living a 73-year old novel. Greenwald explains that in 2006 the American left and right agreed that it was unconscionable that distinguished World War II Historian David Irving or anyone could be imprisoned for expressing his views. In Irving’s case, he was invited to Austria to speak, and he was arrested and imprisoned for 3 years for views he had expressed 17 years previously on the evidence that existed at that time. Austria and most of Europe had criminalized the expression of views about the holocaust that did not conform with the official Jewish narrative.
As Greenwald points out, no one 16 years ago, except the ADL, thought legislation against free speech was permissible.
Today, less than two decades later, Greenwald reports that the American left and the Democrat Party associate free speech with fascism and far right extremists. Three-fourths of Democrats today believe in suppressing speech that is “offensive” to them, to blacks, and to Jews and that disagrees with official narratives. And so do approximately one-third of Republicans.
This report originally ran on October 26, 2020, a week before the election. The tech giants censored it. The fake news mainstream media ignored it. Twitter deleted Joe Hoft’s account for posting reports like this from Hunter Biden’s laptop. In case you missed it, we are running this again.
Yesterday we reported on former VP Joe Biden who snapped at a reporter who dared to ask him about his son Hunter. But VP Biden can’t get out of this one.
Biden did not let WYOU reporter Andy Mehalshick get through his question before snapping during an event on Saturday.
“Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son,” Mehalshick began.
Interviewer: “Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son-“
Biden: “There is no controversy about my son. That’s a hell of a lie. That’s a flat lie because the president has nothing to run on… it’s classic Trump.” pic.twitter.com/MQQGvddrHO
Arizona Attorney General’s Office Fires Off Letter to Maricopa County Regarding 2022 Midterm Election Day Irregularities
The letter is signed by Jennifer Wright, the Assistant Attorney General from the state of Arizona.
In the letter Jennifer Wright explains that the Attorney General’s Elections Integrity Unit has received HUNDREDS of complaints by concerned citizens since pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County. The complaints include first-hand accounts from witnesses raising concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election code.
The Attorney General’s office also includes how at least 60 voting locations out of 230 in the county had tabulators and printing machines that were not working on Election Day.
The Attorney General’s office demanded that Maricopa County provide a comprehensive list on the equipment failures on Election Day.
The AG’s office admits that the machines were allegedly working the night before the election but that 25-30 percent of the machines were down hours later on Election Day morning.

Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on Nov. 8.
Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.
“The Elections Integrity Unit (“Unit”) of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (“AGO”) has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Wright opened her letter.
The Washington Post slammed President Joe Biden in a statement Friday for shielding Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from a lawsuit on Thursday over his involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, one of the newspaper’s columnists.
The Biden administration said Thursday evening that MBS’ status holding a high office “allows immunity” in response to a lawsuit filed by Khashoggi’s fiancée and by the rights group he founded, Democracy for the Arab World Now.
“In granting legal immunity to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, President Biden is failing to uphold America’s most cherished values,” Fred Ryan, Publisher and CEO of The Washington Post, said in a statement. “He is granting a license to kill to one of the world’s most egregious human-rights abusers who is responsible for the cold-blooded murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist.”
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) condemns shelling attacks around the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in Ukraine, calling reports from its team on the ground “disturbing.” Russian officials in control of Europe’s largest nuclear site accuse Kyiv of shelling the area.

Powerful explosions have rocked the area around Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said.
“In what appeared to be renewed shelling both close to and at the site of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, IAEA experts at the ZNPP reported to Agency headquarters that more than a dozen blasts were heard within a short period of time in the morning local time,” the IAEA said in a statement.
Renat Karchaa, an adviser to the head of Russia’s Rosenergoatom nuclear power company, said shelling around the Zaporizhzhya nuclear site was ongoing.
“They not only shelled yesterday, they are shelling today, shelling right now. As of now, about 15 hits at nuclear power plant facilities have been recorded. Any artillery strikes on the nuclear plant put nuclear safety at risk,” Karchaa was quoted as saying by Russia’s TASS news agency.
Rev. Al Sharpton received a massive raise through his National Action Network charity that's nearly doubled his pay packet to nearly $650,000 with his non-profit also shelling out $1million on private jets.
Sharpton, president and CEO of NAN, was compensated $348,174 by his charitable foundation, according to tax filings. He was also allocated $278,503 in bonuses and $22,117 in benefits, bringing his total compensation to $648,794.
That's a giant increase in pay for Sharpton, who's salary was $347,183, and did not include bonuses, two years ago (in 2020).
In late September videographer Matt Orfalea made a pair of videos for TK. One, Memory Holed: “The Election Was Hacked,” seen above, was a simple montage of Democratic politicians, media officials, and enforcement officials saying the 2016 election was, among other things, “illegitimate,” “rigged,” “hacked,” and a “cyber 9/11.”
The second, Memory Holed, Part II: The “Rigged” Election, was a similar exercise, with one exception: it compared the post-2020 statements of Donald Trump to the post-2016 statements of Democratic partisans. When Trump tells Chris Wallace, “I have to see,” when asked if he’d concede an election, Orfalea shows Hillary Clinton saying, “No, I would not,” when asked in 2017 — after her loss — if she’d contest the results. He shows Trump later saying he’ll of course respect the results, “if I win,” and Hillary Clinton saying Joe Biden should not concede “under any circumstances,” essentially exact analogs.
The US State Department is funding a video game with an anti-populist message aimed at teaching kids to recognize “disinformation,” according to documents published by the Foundation for Freedom Online (FFO) on Thursday. The game, 'Cat Park', is being rolled out globally, with US embassies asking employees to push it through schools and community organizations.
In a memo sent on October 31 to all US diplomatic posts worldwide, the State Department encouraged staff to “promote,” “publicize,” and “organize special rollout events” for ‘Cat Park’, a game developed by a Dutch studio and funded by the State Department’s ‘Global Engagement Center’ (GEC).
The game demonstrates “how sensational headlines, memes, and manipulated media can be used to advance conspiracy theories and incite real-world violence,” read the memo, which was obtained by America First Legal and made public by the FFO.
