Thought for the day

"Democracy has little meaning when big business rules the life of the country through its control of the means of production, exchange, transportation, and communication, reinforced by command of the press, press agents and other means of publicity and propaganda." -- US philosopher John Dewey

On Truth Social Monday, Trump said that there was a massive number of broken voting machines in Republican districts on Election Day. He added that GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake had to cast her vote in a Democrat area, where he pointed out that the machines were working perfectly.

This comes amid reports of problems with voting machines throughout the state, as well as issues with tabulators and printers.

On Monday, Maricopa County certified the 2022 general election results in favorite of Democrat candidate Katie Hobbs. Republican nominee Kari Lake has yet to concede in the gubernatorial race.

Trump said the voting issues were almost as bad as the ones that occurred during the 2020 presidential election. The 45th president has called for Lake to be installed as governor.

I doubt there is another era in the history of Western Civ when the forces in-motion acting on society were so mystifying to those acted upon. And isn’t it especially galling that this is so in an age after rational scientific practice had decoded so many of nature’s secrets? Did that project somehow fail in the end? Has the Enlightenment been defeated? How have we become trapped like frogs being boiled haplessly in our own pond-water?

    I have reduced these forces to four obvious streams of the sheerest seemingly evil fuckery, which is to say nefariously managed events meant to harm us. They are surely all related in some way. Let’s try to de-mystify them to understand what we’re up against.

    First: Covid-19. How is it that we don’t know for sure how this organism came into the world, or understand what ensued after it did? Answer: the people who caused it to happen in the Wuhan lab have been busy covering their asses for three years, and successfully so. Yet we know exactly what Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins, Peter Daszak, Ralph Baric and others did. The paper trail in correspondence and patents alone is clear. We just can’t seem to do anything about it.

    We don’t know why they did it yet, too, but there are plausible guesses. Maybe Dr. Fauci wanted to cap his long, checkered career with a final heroic triumph: the introduction of world-saving mRNA vaccines — incidentally, a great financial boon to himself and the pharma industry he secretly served. Like everything else Fauci worked on for forty years, this experiment ended in disaster: a Frankenstein disease that persists in the population and vaccines that maim and kill people. How did Fauci and company get away with it? Here’s how:

The United States has no higher priority than the safety, health, and well-being of American citizens overseas.  We are actively working with and assisting our citizens experiencing challenges related to the recent rise of COVID-19 infections in China.  The People’s Republic of China (PRC) authorities have expanded COVID-19 prevention restrictions and control measures as outbreaks occur.  These measures may include residential quarantines, mass testing, closures, transportation disruptions, lockdowns, and possible family separation.  Ambassador Burns and other Mission officials have regularly raised our concerns on many of these issues directly with senior PRC officials and will continue to do so.

We encourage all U.S. citizens to keep a 14-day supply of medications, bottled water, and food for yourself and any members of your household.

Earlier in the year, the Supreme Court overruled blue states’ attempts to violate Americans’ rights. It struck down a law in New York that made concealed carry essentially impossible. So, the radical liberal government of the state quickly passed a new set of rules, making it even harder for a New Yorker to defend himself.

One of the major changes was the declaration that nearly every place in New York was a “sensitive place” and would essentially become a “gun free” zone. Even private property was off-limits, putting law-abiding citizens at risk. This was quickly taken to federal court and a judge just dropped his gavel on liberty-hating NY.

From Ammoland:

The decision and order found the ban on carrying on private property, without the express consent of the property owner, was unconstitutional…

“Property owners indeed have the right to exclude. But the state may not unilaterally exercise that right and, thereby, interfere with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens who seek to carry for self-defense outside of their own homes.”

The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care, as you can see — nine of them in total.

“Hunter and ex-wife Kathleen Buhle’s three daughters Naomi, Finnegan and Maisy were represented — along with Naomi’s new husband Peter Neal as well as Natalie and Hunter, the two children of the late Beau Biden and his widow Hallie,” the New York Post reported.

“Still another stocking bore the name ‘Baby,’ an apparent reference to Hunter’s two-year-old son Beau with second wife Melissa Cohen, while the last two were set aside for first dog Commander and first cat Willow.”

Not included? Navy Jones Roberts, the 4-year-old granddaughter of the president and daughter of Hunter Biden.

Navy was born in 2018 to Lunden Roberts, a former adult entertainer at one of Hunter’s favorite Washington strip joints. Hunter vigorously denied paternity until a DNA test proved he was the biological father.

Webmaster addition: It is not the fault of little Navy that the circumstances of her birth violate "tradition." Why punish the granddaughter (at the same time they are protecting Hunter)? Merry Christmas Navy Jones Roberts!

In yet another example of Big Tech tyranny, YouTube nuked a viral “Full Send Podcast” episode featuring controversial “manosphere” figure Andrew Tate last week. The video, which was posted in August, had been viewed by millions and was one of the “Full Send Podcast’s” most popular videos. 

“Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our hate speech policy,” said an email from YouTube in a screenshot posted by “Full Send Podcast” host Kyle Forgeard. “Content glorifying or inciting violence against another person or group of people is not allowed on YouTube,” continued the email. 

It remains unclear exactly how Tate was “glorifying or inciting” violence. Google did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment by publication time.

What we do know is that Tate wields incredible sway with young people. If you don’t know who Andrew Tate is, your kids and grandkids likely do, and before YouTube deleted the podcast, Tate’s two-hour-long discussion was viewed by millions of Tate’s predominantly Gen Z fans. So who is Andrew Tate, what was in this forbidden podcast, and why should you care?

Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) recently got in touch with his inner mobster and threatened Elon Musk — the new owner of Twitter and the CEO of electric car company Tesla and space ventures company SpaceX. He told Musk, “Fix your companies” or “Congress will.” As part of this threat, Markey referred to an ongoing National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation into Tesla’s autopilot driving system and Twitter’s 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Markey has done more than make threats: He is one of a group of Democratic senators who wrote to the FTC urging an investigation into whether Musk’s actions as the new owner of Twitter violated the consent decree or consumer protection laws. Since FTC Chair Lina Khan wants to investigate as many businesses as possible, it is likely she will respond favorably to the senators’ letter.

President Biden has also endorsed an investigation into the role foreign investors played in financing Musk’s Twitter purchase. Biden may be concerned that Musk is not likely to ban tweets regarding Hunter Biden’s business deals.

Concerns that Musk would allow tweets containing information embarrassing (or worse) to the Biden administration point to the real reason many Democratic politicians and progressive writers and activists are attacking Musk. They support efforts to suppress conservative, libertarian, and other “non-woke” speech on social media. They view the prospect of a major platform refusing to silence those who dissent from the woke mob or the Democratic Party establishment as a threat to their power. Musk further angered the left by committing what, to many Democrats (and Liz Cheney), is the ultimate hate crime — allowing Donald Trump back on Twitter.

Deutsche Welle, a German international broadcaster, financed by who they don’t say, reports that the German government is going to criminalize denying war crimes. https://www.dw.com/en/germany-criminalizes-denying-war-crimes-genocide/a-63834791

Neither Deutsche Welle nor the German government reveals who it is who gets to determine the unchallengeable war crimes.

Germany gave in to the Jewish lobbies and long ago criminalized “Holocaust denial.” I have wondered why. If the Holocaust is true, it can stand on the facts and remain undamaged by unsupported denials. What the criminalization of inquiry and debate does is to prevent us from knowing the true dimension and history of the Holocaust. My understanding from reading is that Austria, some other European countries and Canada do not permit any examination of the Holocaust. We are simply told that it is true, but it can’t be examined, and that is the end of it.

The Germans have suffered substantially from declared and unexamined “truths.” In World War I Germany was accused of its soldiers bayoneting Belgian babies. (In the 21st century a version of this falsehood was repeated against Iraqi troops in Kuwait.) The propaganda created enormous hatred for Germany. These decades later after the normalization of mothers bayoneting their own babies, it might not have the same effect. But what if it had been legislated a criminal act to investigate whether German soldiers murdered Belgian babies? The propaganda would rule.

It would no longer be “life as we know it” if a space war destroyed the satellites that the world now relies on, space commanders have warned, and China and Russia have demonstrated that they’re capable of doing just that.

Top brass from the US and Canada are in Sydney for an Australian Strategic Policy Institute conference on space as the new frontier in “commerce, industry, competition and war”. They have discussed the importance of working with allies, including Australia, to counter the threats posed by space war.

Lt Gen Nina Armagno, staff director of the US Space Force, said Russia’s destruction of one of their own satellites last year was a “stunning display”.

Webmaster addition: The US also has this capability.

China's censors have been overwhelmed as they try to wipe images of blank sheets of white paper used by protesters in a growing number of demonstrations against President Xi Jinping's zero-Covid policy from the internet.

The country is currently facing its largest anti-government protests since the Tiananmen Square massacre, with protesters in at least seven cities holding up blank sheets of paper to symbolise censorship.

Protesters have taken to the streets of Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Nanjing in an unprecedented wave of dissent to demonstrate against President Xi, his oppressive Covid crackdowns and increasingly authoritarian rule.

As a tactical concern, the House GOP’s decision to open an investigation into Biden family corruption is questionable. It promises limited political return. It would serve Republicans, and the country, far better if the House focused on a hyper-politicized Justice Department that targets the political opposition, labels concerned parents “domestic terrorists” and ignores violence aimed at pregnancy centers, for starters.

None of that, however, means there isn’t sufficient circumstantial evidence suggesting President Joe Biden not only lied about knowing his son was favor-trading on the family name with corrupt autocracies but that he was a beneficiary of those business dealings. Indeed, precedent says we Republicans have a duty to “democracy” to investigate. Yet Greg Sargent over at The Washington Post warns: “If Republicans can obliterate the distinction between congressional investigations done in good faith and ones that weaponize the process in bad faith, they win.”

You see, only Democrats can launch investigations in “good faith.”

Disney suffered one of its worst theatrical releases ever with its latest animated movie Strange World, which brought in just $18.6 million over the five-day holiday weekend despite being heralded as the first Disney movie to include an openly gay main character.

Strange World had Disney’s second-worst opening weekend ever, behind only the pandemic-era release of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg, Variety reported Sunday. Ultimately, Strange World only garnered about half of its projected long weekend revenue.

The film featured a star-studded cast including voice acting from Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Lucy Liu, and Gabrielle Union, and sported a massive budget between $120 and $130 million, the Daily Mail writes.

Webmaster addition: Get woke, go broke. People watch movies and TV to be ENTERTAINED. They want to see stories about people they can identify with. If the audience cannot identify with the main characters, they won't care what happens to them. They will lose interest and the film or TV show will fail. Hell, I learned that in film school decades ago! How is it Disney forgot such a basic concept?
