Thought for the day

New Democrat Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs has proposed her new budget and it appears she will clash with the Republican legislature.

She unveiled the $17.1 billion budget proposal on Friday claiming that it would lower costs, Just The News reported.

“We have an opportunity to make a significant change in the lives of the families and communities of this state. We are committed to facing our challenges head on to build a resilient, innovative and prosperous Arizona for everyone,” the governor said.

She also said that her budget address the affordable housing crisis and secure Arizona’s water future.

The governor also proposed an end to the state’s Empowerment Scholarship program which has allowed parents to use a portion of the state funds allocated to their child’s education to pay for private school tuition and other educational expenses.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during a Thursday afternoon press conference lawyers had finished searching for classified documents after some were found in President Biden's Wilmington, Delaware, garage.

But the search actually continued that evening when more classified documents were found.

Classified documents were also found at Biden's private office at the Penn Biden Center in November.

Human Rights Commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova has denounced alleged instances of extortion against relatives of Russian soldiers taken prisoner by Ukraine’s Armed Forces.

“I received this chilling footage on January 14 from the relatives of captured Russian servicemen Vladislav Kovalenko and Piotr Krikunov. Using unknown accounts, anonymous non-humans show mothers scenes of their sons being tortured, and threaten to kill them if they do not receive a ransom. Yet more evidence for the future tribunal over the Nazis!” wrote Moskalkova on her Telegram messaging app on January 14.

The Russian official accompanied her post with video footage allegedly showing proof of such extortion taking place.

The ombudswoman said that family members of Russian soldiers had reported cases when they were sent horrifying scenes of violence used against the prisoners. Such materials were allegedly accompanied by threats that the captives would be killed unless their relatives paid a ransom sum.

The ombudswoman underscored that such instances were proof that “fascism” is not some horrifying page of history, but that it is “here and now, among us.”

One year ago today, Joe Biden recalled “the first time” he “got arrested” while protesting during the civil rights movement.

The only problem is there is no evidence Biden has ever been arrested, and he certainly wasn’t a civil rights activist — despite repeatedly saying so.

But this claim is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Biden’s decades-long record of dishonesty.

In a live television appearance today on the BBC, cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra took the network by surprise when he made the “unprompted” suggestion that mRNA vaccines, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, pose a cardiovascular risk.

Malhotra later tweeted the video from his BBC appearance, accompanied by the celebratory message, “We broke mainstream broadcast media,” generating instant controversy in the Twittersphere and elsewhere — ranging from triumphant tweets by those skeptical of mRNA vaccines, to calls for Malhotra to be “canceled” and questioning his claims.

The Research Council of Norway is spending over $1.2 million USD on a project that is dedicated to discovering how the country has contributed to the spread of “whiteness” globally, through colonialism and through paint.

The research project, “How Norway Made the World Whiter (NorWhite),” hosted by the University of Bergen, describes “whiteness” as “​one of today's key societal and political concerns.”

“Within and beyond academia worldwide, actions of revolt and regret seek to cope with our racial past. In the pivotal works in whiteness studies within art and architecture history, whiteness is understood as cultural and visual structures of privilege,” the project, principally led by Associate Professor Ingrid Halland, opens. Her website boasts of a 12 million kroner funding grant from the government.

According to the project's webpage, the aim is to address “a distinctively different battleground for politics of whiteness in art and architecture.”

Webmaster addition: This is just plain silly!

Documents found at President Joe Biden’s private office reportedly contained “top secret” materials, according to CBS News.

A federal law enforcement told the outlet of the presence of top-secret information within the 10 classified documents already known to have been recovered from Biden’s vice presidential office at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., but the report did not share details about their specific contents.

A source previously told CNN the classified documents found at Biden’s private academic office among other unclassified papers contained U.S. intelligence memos and briefing materials on Iran, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. Biden used office while working as an honorary professor for the University of Pennsylvania from 2017 to 2019, when he was not the vice president and before he was elected president.

The director of the National Intelligence Agency (NSA) asked Congress on Thursday to reauthorize a controversial surveillance power aimed at foreign nationals that can expose the communications of Americans. 

NSA Director Paul Nakasone said that there was vital security interest in renewing Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) before it expires at the end of the year, which allows intelligence agencies to obtain the online communications of foreign nationals without a warrant.

Section 702 has come under fire from civil liberties groups because the messages of Americans could be exposed if they are communicating with a foreigner under surveillance. Its renewal could also face increased opposition in Congress as Republicans look to investigate the security agencies.

Former Clinton administration official David Gergen, now a political analyst at CNN, warned late this week that Biden was in for a nightmare over the classified document scandal.

When asked by network opinion host Anderson Cooper how big of a mess Biden was in, Gergen responded, “It’s very, very big.”

“Not legally, but politically,” Gergen claimed. “It’s a very, very big deal.”

Gergen’s claim may not be entirely accurate, as Attorney General Merrick Garland announced last week that he appointed a special counsel to oversee the federal investigation into the scandal.

“I do think that they, that the Biden people, they may be making a big mistake,” Gergen said. “I don’t think sitting there, hunkering down now, you’re just acting like it’s not out there … they’re going to get creamed doing that.”

The National Hockey League (NHL) reversed course late this week over a controversial job fair that was deemed “discriminatory” after Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis warned that it would not be tolerated in the state of Florida.

The job posting was for the NHL’s first “Pathway to Hockey Summit” that is scheduled to take place on February 2 during the league’s All Star festivities in South Florida.

“The Pathway to Hockey Summit is a career event for diverse job seekers who are pursuing careers in hockey,” the NHL said in the now-deleted job posting on LinkedIn. “The day will be filled with guest speakers and panelists, networking opportunities, and more!”

“If you are looking for your opportunity to meet with recruiters from the NHL League Office and at least 10 of our NHL teams, we welcome you to register,” the posting continued. “Participants must be 18 years of age or older, based in the U.S., and identify as female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and/or a person with a disability. Veterans are also welcome and encouraged to attend.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said Saturday that the National Archives has not responded to requests for a briefing over the classified documents that were found at President Joe Biden’s home and a Biden think tank.

Comer, who has jurisdiction over the National Archives, told Fox News that the National Archives has provided no information about what is going on with the documents that were discovered.

“This agency is supposed to do a briefing any time something like this happens. They have not,” Comer said. “Not only have they not given us a briefing, even though we’ve requested one, they haven’t answered any of our simple requests for information. This is very concerning. We are going to deal with the National Archives as this mess progresses. But right now, we have a lot of concerns who had access to these documents.”

Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) sparred with several hosts on CNN late this week when pressed about President Joe Biden’s growing classified document scandal.

Schumer made the contentious remarks during an interview on “CNN This Morning” on Friday, claiming that it was “too early” to comment about whether Biden violated the law.

“It’s much too early to tell,” Schumer said. “I think President Biden has handled this correctly. He’s fully cooperated with the prosecutors when the documents were found, he notified Archives. It’s a total contrast to President Trump, who stonewalled for a whole year.”

I have had a number of horrible falls since I started taking a blood-pressure drug called bisoprolol, which seems to make me feel dizzy and faint. I am 87. Do you have any idea why this is?

Bisoprolol is known as a beta blocker and is used to treat high blood pressure, angina and heart failure.

Dizziness and blackouts are side effects of all beta blockers, and bisoprolol can sometimes cause a drop in blood pressure when you stand up, which can cause people to faint.

As a cardiologist, I have received many reports of cardiovascular events (unstable angina, myocardial infarction) occurring after COVID-19 vaccination.   Each vignette is different from an explosive fatal heart attack to rapid progression of coronary disease and the need for stenting or bypass surgery.  A study by Gundy, who measured multiple biomarkers before and after vaccination was presented as an abstract at the American Heart Association; it predicted heart attacks would happen with COVID-19 vaccination based upon indicators that atherosclerotic plaque within coronary arteries would destabilize with circulatory Spike protein and cytokines.[i]  This inflammatory milieu in combination with the thrombogenic nature of the Spike protein is a recipe for fatal and nonfatal heart attacks in patients with existing coronary disease.

Trust the Authorities, trust the Experts, and trust the Science, we were told.

Public health messaging during the Covid-19 pandemic was only credible if it originated from government health authorities, the World Health Organization, and pharmaceutical companies, as well as scientists who parroted their lines with little critical thinking. 

In the name of ‘protecting’ the public, the authorities have gone to great lengths, as described in the recently released Twitter Files (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) that document collusion between the FBI and social media platforms, to create an illusion of consensus about the appropriate response to Covid-19. 

They suppressed ‘the truth,’ even when emanating from highly credible scientists, undermining scientific debate and preventing the correction of scientific errors. In fact, an entire bureaucracy of censorship has been created, ostensibly to deal with so-called MDM— misinformation (false information resulting from human error with no intention of harm); disinformation (information intended to mislead and manipulate); malinformation (accurate information intended to harm). 

From fact-checkers like NewsGuard, to the European Commission’s Digital Services Act, the UK Online Safety Bill and the BBC Trusted News Initiative, as well as Big Tech and social media, all eyes are on the public to curtail their ‘mis-/dis-information.’ 

“Whether it’s a threat to our health or a threat to our democracy, there is a human cost to disinformation.” — Tim Davie, Director-General of the BBC

Last year was a bad year for corn — the latest US Department of Agriculture (USDA) report shows drought conditions and extreme weather wreaked havoc on croplands. 

USDA unexpectedly slashed its outlook for domestic corn production amid a severe drought across the western farm belt. Farmers in Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas were forced to abandon drought-plagued fields

The agency estimated farmers harvested 79.2 million acres, a decline of 1.6 million acres versus the previous estimate — the smallest acres harvest since 2008. 

The unexpected cut to US harvested corn acres means grain supplies are a lot tighter than realized. A report Thursday showed the corn area in the world's largest producer is at the smallest since 2008 with crops failing in states such as Texas and Nebraska. That's due to persistent drought conditions in the western part of the country that could also hit harvests for wheat plants that are currently dormant for the winter. -- Bloomberg

The crop-failed lands reduced total harvest corn acreage to levels not seen since 2008.
