"Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges. That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government … doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety… It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible." -- George Carlin
The haters of white women for their supposed complicity in the racism of the white supremacist patriarchy are back in full force in Time Magazine this week, with an excerpt from the new bookWhite Women: Everything You Already Know About Your Own Racism and How to Do Better. In this iteration of anti-racist instructions for white women, white women's racism is defined as niceness, perfectionist, and the unconscious implications of their own skin color.
The ladies who brought $2,500 per plate anti-racist dinners to white women a few years ago have now determined that politeness, as we know it, is racist, as is the affliction of perfectionism. Being nice, is all incredibly racist. Their book instructs white women to "stop being nice and start dismantling white supremacy."
Calls are intensifying for a federal investigation into Arizona Democratic Governor-elect Katie Hobbs after internal Twitter emails were recently released.
The emails, which were released as part of the “Twitter files” by new CEO Elon Musk, appear to indicate that Hobbs, who served as the state’s secretary of state at the time, emailed Twitter staffers in Jan. 2021 to have accounts blocked that she claimed contained so-called election misinformation.
Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted: “The SOS of AZ and Gov candidate, Katie Hobbs, used the power of the AZ SOS to collude w/ Twitter to unconstitutionally violate 1st Amendment rights of Americans for her own political gain. This is communism and Hobbs can not be governor. I’m calling for a Federal investigation.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is in line to become Speaker in January, has put the Jan. 6 Committee on notice. Earlier this week, the California Republican sent the committee a letter informing members to preserve documents and all work the panel has done during its investigation so the new GOP majority can examine it.
“I remind you and your staff on the Committee to preserve all records collected and transcripts of testimony taken during your investigation,” McCarthy wrote to the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), on Wednesday. He also said the panel must be held to the strictest of scrutiny, considering the implications of any findings.
“You have spent a year and a half and millions of taxpayers’ dollars conducting this investigation. It is imperative that all information collected be preserved not just for institutional prerogatives but for transparency to the American people,” he wrote.
Investigations are continuing into the election anomalies in Arizona, where Republicans performed fairly well except for in the top four Trump-endorsed races. Since there are 4 percent more Republicans than Democrats in the state (as well as in Maricopa County), and most of the Republicans were easily beating their Democratic opponents in mainstream polls, data analysts are looking closely at the numbers. Analytics 805 examined the numbers of who voted in most of the races, and discovered that Republican candidates outside of the four races performed incredibly well in contrast, as much as 200 percent better.
Analytics 805 founder Thomas Cole told The Arizona Sun Times, “We took the Arizona election numbers and made this chart, to visually show the improbability of Kari Lake losing, while the entire state of Arizona voted Republican for the State Senate and U.S. House races. We saw a two-to-one Republican versus Democrat vote in the State Senate races. So it makes no sense to think those Republicans suddenly flipped to Democrat Katie Hobbs for governor by a 25 percent margin.”
Cole said he became interested in the data after watching an episode of Joe Oltmann’s Conservative Daily Podcast, where Oltmann crunched the numbers.
Arizona Republican Kari Lake has filed a legal challenge to the outcome of her gubernatorial race with Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. Lake believes she has an “exceptional” lawsuit and that she’s willing to “take it all the way to the Supreme Court” if necessary.
Hobbs certified her own win over Lake on Monday with outgoing Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel as witnesses, according to ABC News.
With the certification complete, Lake has five days to file legal challenges in court.
Spike proteins induced by the Covid-19 vaccine are causing blood cells to chew through the heart’s main artery which leads to imminent death, virologist Ryan Cole recently described on the Dr. Drew show.
Presenting slides showing how the spike protein expresses itself in brain tissue and other major organs, the Idaho pathologist explained they make their way throughout the body “wherever the lipid nanoparticle distributes.”
Fashion has been smashing taboos since Coco Chanel first marketed trousers to women after World War I. But today there are very few norms left to assault in pursuit of publicity-generating controversy. So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to find the rag trade venturing into truly taboo territory: paedophilia and now suicide — albeit with a fig-leaf of liberal proceduralism, in its guise as medically-assisted voluntary euthanasia.
Last week, fashion brand Balenciaga triggered considerable controversy when an ad campaign featuring young children holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear hit the headlines. Not to be outdone, Canadian fashion retailer Simons is the source of this week’s fashion rage-clicks, with a video celebrating euthanasia.
After a 3-year saga of stalled contract negotiations between the country’s freight rail carriers and the 12 unions representing over 100,000 railroad workers, “pro-union” President Biden and Congress last week “averted” a national rail shutdown by overriding the democratic will of rail workers and forcing a contract down their throats. So, what happens now? We convene a special all-railroader panel to break down the events of the last week and to discuss where railroad workers and the labor movement go from here.
Panelists include: Jay, a qualified conductor who was licensed to operate locomotives at 19 years old, and who became a qualified train dispatcher before he was 23; Marilee Taylor, who worked on the railroads for over 30 years and retired earlier this year from her post as an engineer for BNSF Railway, but is still an active member of Railroad Workers United; John Tormey, a writer and BWMED-IBT member who works as a track laborer for the commuter rail in Massachusetts; and Matt Parker, a full-time locomotive engineer who’s worked on the railroads for 19 years and also serves part-time as Chairman on the Nevada State Legislative Board of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen.
A pedophile adopted a transgender identity and was consequently able to befriend, groom, sexually assault and impregnate a 14-year-old girl in England.
According to the Daily Mail, the victim's family trusted David Orton, a male with a tattooed face, to be alone with their daughter because of the sex offender's transgender identity. Orton has now begun a nine-and-a-half-year prison sentence after being found guilty of two counts of penetrative sexual activity with a child aged 13 to 15.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. is under a House ethics investigation, according to a statement issued by the House Committee on Ethics on Wednesday.
The panel will announce its course of action after its organizational meeting in the next Congress, sometime in 2023, the statement said.

Details about what the investigation is about investigation is about haven't been released. The Office of Congressional Ethics, a nonpartisan group, forwarded its inquiry into Ocasio-Cortez to the House ethics panel in June.
Citing previously undisclosed emails and other documents related to former president Donald Trump’s son-in-law, the committees on Monday night sent letters to the State and Defense departments requesting material that they say could shed new light on whether “Kushner’s financial conflict of interest may have led him to improperly influence U.S. tax, trade and national security policies for his own financial gain.”
The letters, obtained by The Washington Post, focus on efforts by Kushner and his father, Charles Kushner, to bail out a troubled 41-story Fifth Avenue office building in New York City. The Kushner company in 2018 made a deal with a Canadian company, Brookfield Asset Management, which invested $1.2 billion for a 99-year lease. As a result, the Kushner family company avoided defaulting on a loan that was due the following year.
Democrats have long raised questions about the deal because the Qatar Investment Authority, a sovereign wealth fund, had a stake in one of Brookfield’s investment arms.
“Gender identity” is a hot-topic today and has become a focal point of not just social discourse, but legal policy and procedure. But few people know the concept’s disturbing origins.
Dr. John Money, a sexologist and psychologist from New Zealand who practiced at Johns Hopkins, is considered the first to coin the terms “gender identity” and “gender role,” describing the “internal experience of sexuality” and the “social expectations of male and female behavior” respectively. These concepts are prominently featured in trans activism today, and are used to bolster claims of “gender fluidity.”
Like many sexologists, Money believed pedophilia was a harmless sexuality which, when practiced “properly,” led to the child suffering no harm. In fact, Money’s theories on pedophilia were so sympathetic that, to this day, his work is prominently featured on the website of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)– one of the longest-established pederast rights groups.
In the 1990s, Money allowed himself to be featured in interviews with Paidika, a pedophile psychology journal named after the Greek adjective for “boyish,” and has been used by pedophile rights activists to refer to the younger partner in a pederastic relationship.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is prepared to respond after the Federal Emergency Management Agency has refused to provide a batch of emergency funds for state projects following damage done by Hurricane Ian.
The Republican governor, who was just commandingly reelected to a second term last month, said that President Joe Biden’s FEMA is refusing a $25 million request to fund emergency housing in the wake of the storm, but added that wouldn’t stop him from providing the aid anyway, Fox News reported.
“Unfortunately, we got word last week that FEMA had denied our request for funding our state-led housing initiative, citing their ‘limited authority,’” DeSantis told reporters on Monday. “We’re not just going to sit there and take no for an answer, and we’re going to figure out what we can do.
“We want to cut through bureaucracy. We want to bring relief to impacted Floridians regardless of whether FEMA wants to be a part of that,” he added.
