Thought for the day
"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." -- Howard Zinn, debate versus Charles Frankel - 1970
Joe Rogan torched White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre over what he called a “ridiculous” answer to Fox News’ Peter Doocy about her 2016 stolen election claim.
“In Canada, we support unequivocally women’s right to choose. It is a fundamental tenet of freedom,” Trudeau said. “[It] is a fundamental tenet of our society. We stand up for women’s rights.”
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) sent a letter to the CEO of YouTube this week asking for information on the company’s “troubling track record” of censorship.
A leading Johns Hopkins University medical professor is raising the alarm about a spike in serious heart damage being recorded in children.
Dr. Marty Makary is a surgeon and public policy researcher at Johns Hopkins and is regarded as one of America’s leading medical experts.
He’s warning that there has been a sharp rise in “significant heart damage,” or myocarditis, in children.
Makary has blasted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for ignoring the issue.
Rather than investigating the cases, Makary says the CDC has “downplayed” the issue.
Makary appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where he expressed major concerns about the soaring childhood myocarditis cases.
“And in some people who received it [the vaccine], there appears to be serious heart damage,” Carlson said.
“Far more than the experts thought would occur.
Jeff Bartos, who co-chairs the Senate campaign for Pennsylvania Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz, was seen on Wednesday at a fundraiser for Pennsylvania Democratic Attorney General and gubernatorial nominee Josh Shapiro, according to Politico.
Video from a Hispanic Texas farmer shows illegal immigrants fleeing Border Patrol first trying to get in his house, but when unsuccessful, entering his elderly grandfather’s home next door.
If you have a carbon monoxide detector, make sure it isn’t included in this consumer alert.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning people about the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning while using the HECOPRO digital display carbon monoxide detector. The device was sold on Amazon under ASIN B07T66J7KJ for between $9 and $13.
The detectors are made of white plastic, with approximate dimensions of 4.1 x 1.8 x 4.1 inches, featuring a digital display. The devices are generally advertised to detect dangerous levels of carbon monoxide and alert with a flashing red LED and a loud alarm pattern.
The alert comes as the CPSC learned that the device can fail to alert people to the presence of carbon monoxide. Sensitivity tests performed on the detectors found they failed to alert when exposed to the pre-determined concentrations of carbon monoxide in violation of safety standards.
Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn and 32 other Senate Republicans are demanding special counsel powers for the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden.
The lawmakers say they fear Attorney General Merrick Garland or others at the Justice Department may attempt to meddle in the probe to protect President Joe Biden and his son.
“It is clear that Hunter Biden thrived off of a ‘pay to play’ culture of access to his father, then Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for financial compensation,” Cornyn and his colleagues wrote in the letter.
“Given that the investigation involves the President’s son,” the letter from Cornyn says, “we believe it is important to provide U.S. Attorney Weiss with special counsel authorities and protections to allow him to investigate an appropriate scope of potentially criminal conduct, avoid the appearance of impropriety, and provide additional assurances to the American people that the Hunter Biden investigation is free from political influence.”
Stephen A. Smith of ESPN slammed the Boston Celtics after news broke that their coach, Ime Udoka, was likely being suspended for reportedly having a consensual relationship with a staffer at the organization.
Farmers across the world are in open revolt against their governments. In India, thousands of farmers have stormed New Delhi, alleging collusion between the Prime Minister and major agricultural corporations. In the Netherlands, new restrictions on nitrogen emissions from fertilizer that threaten to destroy farmers’ livelihoods have driven battalions of tractors into the streets—and conflicts with the police. In Sri Lanka, the President’s sudden decision to ban chemical fertilizers and impose universal organic farming recently led to massive protests and the collapse of their government. Similar environmentalist policies are about to be imposed in Ireland and Canada, where just last year truckers shut down the city of Ottawa over COVID vaccination mandates.
Writing for National Review, Andrew Stuttaford predicts an impending farmer’s uprising in Canada in response to what he calls Canada’s “war on beef.” The phrase echoes a common belief on the American right that leftists seek to hyper-regulate or outright ban animal protein in the same way they do guns or fossil fuels. The Foundation for Economic Education began talking about a “war on meat” as early as 2019. Senator Joni Ernst referenced “the left’s war on meat” to advocate her TASTEE Act last year. John Daniel Davidson of The Federalist recently warned that “America is Next” for a farmer uprising, due to the climate policies that Democrats are imposing here. Ultimately, many Americans have come to agree that this war on meat is a conspiracy of globalist elites, attributing even everyday agricultural misfortunes such as fertilizer scarcity, diesel fuel price hikes, widespread food processing and crop fires, and supply chain disruptions to a purposeful agenda.
The average American has lost $4,200 in annual income since President Biden took office — entirely wiping out gains made under the Trump administration, an analysis from the Heritage Foundation shows.
Their analysis found that the average American has lost about $3,000 in annual purchasing power because consumer prices, which have risen 12.7% since January 2021, have spiked significantly faster the wages.
Wages have risen just 8% over the same period, which has effectively resulted in a pay cut for Americans struggling to pay for daily necessities including food, gas and rent.
It seems that Vice President Kamala Harris still has not hired speech writers.
Her latest word salad was a public speech that quickly turned around social media. She has a habit of getting stuck on one word, and we see that again. It’s pretty painful.
Herald Online stated, “Harris noted the Biden administration’s $12 billion investment into community banks.”

The ad, which showed two schoolgirls double-masked while playing the flute, was mocked by social media users
A Hong Kong video showing schoolchildren wearing double masks while performing the flute has drawn ridicule on social media.
The ad, released by Hong Kong's Education Bureau, was posted ahead of China's National Day on 1 October.
It also comes after Hong Kong earlier announced a further extension in Covid restrictions, including masking.
It is one of the few remaining cities that have retained strict Covid measures since the pandemic struck.
Employees of the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General’s office are calling on President Joe Biden to fire Inspector General Joseph Cuffari, according to a letter obtained by the Project on Government Oversight.
“The mission of DHS OIG is to provide independent oversight and promote excellence, integrity, and accountability within DHS,” the employees wrote in the letter signed by “Concerned DHSOIG employees representing every program office at every grade level.”
The employees said they didn’t want to sign their names for fear of retaliation.
Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill this week legalizing human composting.
The BP Toledo refinery was “safely shut down” in response to Tuesday night’s fire where two employees died.
Four days later, when the fire was officially out, the U.S. Navy faced the sickening loss of a $1.2 billion-dollar warship, not to war, or even at sea. But to a wholly preventable fire while moored in a stateside port. For the Navy, whose reputation as the world’s finest had been battered by recent collisions at sea and allegations of shoddy equipment and training, the loss of the Bonhomme Richard was an embarrassing — and painfully public — blow.
The service immediately launched two parallel investigations into what went wrong and why.
The command investigation, led by a three-star admiral, sent a team of investigators on a prodigious and methodical examination of the fire. As the months passed, the investigators uncovered in exhaustive detail an astonishing array of failures — broken or missing fire hoses, poorly trained sailors, improperly stored hazardous material — that had primed the ship for a calamitous fire.
A separate investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, for its part, focused on whether anyone was criminally responsible. As the months passed, NCIS investigators appeared to operate in isolation, discounting the damning findings of the command investigation to pursue a case of arson, despite scant evidence.
Biden’s green energy policies (limiting supply) caused a tremendous surge in energy prices and food prices (one has to pay to get food shipped!). But in order for The Fed to cool inflation, they are in the process of tightening their loose monetary policy since late 2008.
One of the consequences (intended or unintended) is that as mortgage rose, homebuyer mortgage payments rose 45.5% YoY.
The Bombay High Court has issued a notice to tech giant and Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine promoter Bill Gates, along with others, after a petition was filed by the father of a woman who allegedly died after getting vaccinated.
The petitioner is Dilip Lunawat. He claims that his daughter Snehal, a doctor in Nashik, Maharashtra and a senior lecturer at the SMBT Dental College and Hospital, experienced severe side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine that she never recovered from. She died on March 1, 2021.
Lunawat noted that his daughter died around a month after first getting vaccinated with the Bill Gates-funded AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, distributed in India under the brand name Covidshield with the help of the Serum Institute of India (SII), a private biotechnology company. (Related: Beloved doctor in India succumbs to coronavirus despite being fully vaccinated.)
On September 13, Ukrainian President Vlodymyr Zelensky made a surprise trip to the city of Izyum in the Kharkov Region for a photo op following his military’s recapture of the town from Russian forces. During the visit, a soldier who appeared to be guarding Zelensky was photographed wearing a Nazi-inspired patch on his uniform.
When the image drew criticism on social media, the Ukrainian president’s official Telegram and Facebook accounts quietly deleted it.
In Izyum on September 14, Zelensky participated in a flag raising ceremony to the tune of the Ukrainian National Anthem and took selfies with local civilians and soldiers. While most of the men on the scene wore official military fatigues, it was not difficult to see which ones were for lack of a better term, working, and which ones were simply present to participate in the event.
A new ordinance in Chicago declares the Windy City a “sanctuary” for “bodily autonomy” and forbids government agencies and staff from helping other states enforce their abortion laws or laws against the genital and chemical mutilation of children.
The Chicago City Council approved on Wednesday the “Bodily Autonomy Sanctuary City Ordinance,” which prohibits any Chicago government agency or employee from “provid[ing] information related to, or in furtherance of, any investigation or proceeding initiated in or by another state or jurisdiction that seeks to impose civil or criminal liability or professional sanctions upon a person for the provision or receipt of, or any inquiry concerning, reproductive health care or gender-affirming care that is legal in the State of Illinois.”
Data from Zillow showed home values dropping in blue areas across the country.
The national average for a gallon of gasoline would drop, and the president’s staff would publicly celebrate the dip as more evidence that the decision to tap the strategic petroleum reserve was helping the everyday American. And while gas was not, and is still not, cheap, the downward streak was undeniable. It lasted 99 consecutive days.
President Donald Trump gave more insight on the raid of Mar-A-Lago during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night.
A Tupelo detective said an armed robbery suspect walked up behind a compliant convenience store clerk Sunday morning and shot him in the back of the head," the Daily Journal reports.
"The clerk is very gracious and even gave him a stack of money he didn't ask for," detective Wes Kloac testified. "He opened the safe for him and gave him a bank bag."
After ordering the Chevron Food Mart clerk to the floor, "(The suspect) then walked up behind Mr. Singh and, at point blank range, executed him," Kloac added.

Hospitals across the country have created gender clinics to facilitate gender transition for both minors and adults. While many have been exposed, many more are operating the same kinds of clinics, giving children puberty blockers to stunt their natural development, and pushing harmful cross-sex hormones and surgeries on minors.
One of these is Golisano Children's Hospital in Rochester, New York, which offers a promotional video for gender transition, featuring a mother who transitioned her child, as well as providers who claim that trans children know they are in the wrong body for "their whole lives."
