Still trust the WHO? (World Health Organization)

April 2, 2020

Here’s a simple question for everyone. Do you still trust the World Health Organization? You know the shady globalist group that took the Chinese’s word for it that the COVID-19 could not be spread person-to-person. The same group who supplied faulty virus test kits and thousands of defective masks & ventilators around the world, you know those guys.

Well, maybe you shouldn’t.

A senior WHO official has raised hackles in Taiwan by appearing to dodge questions about Taiwan”s exclusion from the world health body. During an interview via video chat with a Hong Kong media outlet, Bruce Aylward, a Canadian epidemiologist, remained silent for about ten seconds when asked if the WHO should reconsider Taiwan”s membership.

Lin Shih-chia, the CEO of the Foundation of Medical Professionals Alliance, lamented that the WHO has been deeply poisoned by Chinese influence. He said he believed that once the pandemic was over, each nation would seriously consider how to reform these kinds of international organizations that have been heavily infiltrated by China.

When he came back on air, Aylward declared that if he had contracted the coronavirus, he would want to be treated in China. Wow -WHO!

Will any of us survive this whacky culture?

February 21, 2020

Why whatever do you mean by whacky? You wanna know? Here’s whacky. A father in British Columbia (not that far from the good old USA) has been ordered by the courts not to speak about his 14 year old daughter who is taking heavy doses of testosterone to transition to a male against his objection, but he has no say in the matter. In fact the court has ordered him to refer to his daughter by male pronouns -even at home, under threat of arrest.

This is a re-blog from The Federalist, by Jerimiah Keenan.

‘I had a perfectly healthy child a year ago, and that perfectly healthy child has been altered and destroyed for absolutely no good reason,’ Rob Hoogland says.

For the past 11 months, Robert Hoogland, a father in Surrey, British Columbia, has been forced to watch as his 14 year-old daughter was “destroyed and sterilized” by court-ordered testosterone injections.

“She can never go back to being a girl in the healthy body that she should have had. She’s going to forever have a lower voice. She’ll forever have to shave because of facial hair. She won’t be able to have children…”

 

Rob felt that at the age of 14—when the courts judged his daughter competent to take testosterone without parental consent—she simply did not have the foresight necessary to understand such consequences. Over the course of the past year, Rob has heard his daughter’s voice deepen and crack and watched her begin to grow facial hair.

“Sometimes I just want to scream so that other parents and people will… jump in, understand what’s going on,” Rob said. “There’s a child—and not only mine, but in my case, my child out there having her life ruined,” and yet, Rob felt, “people don’t [even] know.”

Rob’s efforts to raise awareness of his daughter’s plight have come at a high cost. The last time he granted an interview to The Federalist, he was convicted of “family violence” by the BC Supreme Court for his “expressions of rejection of [his daughter’s] gender identity.” He was also placed under threat of immediate arrest if he was caught referring to his daughter as a girl again.

While a January ruling in the BC Court of Appeal vacated that threat, Rob remains under a strict gag order forbidding him from speaking about his daughter’s case in public and requiring that he “acknowledge and refer to [his daughter] as male” in private.

But Rob says he feels a moral responsibility to try to fight the laws and the court rulings which have “destroyed” his daughter. “People need to stand up and realize that [the courts are] sterilizing children, essentially, and mutilating them,” Rob said. “It’s… state-sponsored child abuse.”

Feeling that if he lacked the courage to speak out, he could scarcely expect others to stand up and help him, Rob granted two video interviews to Canadian YouTube commentators about his case. While the interviews garnered a sharp initial interest, the commentators who granted them quickly found themselves under threats of litigation. Rob’s first interview was immediately taken down. Rob’s second interviewer, Laura-Lynn Thompson, faced similar threats, but initially refused to take her video (not currently available in Canada) down.

Last Thursday, Justice Michael Tammen of the British Columbia Supreme Court ordered that Thompson’s interview and various social media posts be taken down. When Thompson stalled, trying to keep a rapidly sharing copy of her interview available to Canadians on Bitchute, the police were sent to her house to demand she take the video down.

Tammen also harshly reprimanded Rob for speaking about his case to the media, warning him that if he broke his silence again, he would likely be cited for contempt of court.

Nevertheless, Rob says he is unwilling to back down. “Whatever happens to me pales in comparison to what’s already happened to my daughter.” Rob feels there is no way for him to fight “this child abuse” of his daughter except to force his story out into the open.

The path forward is not likely to be easy, but Rob said he feels a responsibility to tell his story that goes much deeper than anything court costs or even jail time could deflect. “Let’s say in 5, 10 years my daughter is detransitioning, and she turns to me and says, you know, ‘Dad or Mom, why did none of you do anything to stop this?’…. When my daughter asks me that question, I’ll say, ‘I did everything that I possibly could. There was nothing more I could do, and then when there was nothing more I could do, I continued on because I didn’t want other parents to go through what I went through.”

But Rob says he feels a moral responsibility to try to fight the laws and the court rulings which have “destroyed” his daughter. “People need to stand up and realize that [the courts are] sterilizing children, essentially, and mutilating them,” Rob said. “It’s… state-sponsored child abuse.”

We need to take back our education system!

November 11, 2019

I haven’t blogged in quite awhile. My time has been more occupied with things like the Convention of States which is a national grassroots movement to RESTRAIN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Do any of you see a need for that? Yes, don’t we all, except for the Bernie Bros who want to massively increase the reach and power of the federal government.

But today and back to the subject at hand, our education system has turned into a well placed, all over the country, well-funded, by your taxes and mine, indoctrination mills designed to turn out full-throated progressives to carry out their leftist agenda.

This is not a complete re-blog, as I have pared it down to the 9 changes that should be made immediately to reform our education system. Hat-tip Ken Abramowitz and Jon Sutz. Go to this link to see the entire article for those who are interested.

Here’s how we begin to fix this mess:

(1) We must increase school choice through expanded 529 savings accounts, direct educational savings accounts (ESAs), charter schools, and expanded federal & state scholarships.

(2) We must ensure that America’s children are fluent in basic literacy and analytical thinking skills before they can graduate from high school. As it is, not only is this standard not being met, quite the opposite: According to a 2016 report by the American College of Trustees & Alumni, most of our college graduates struggle with tasks they should have mastered in the high school, if not earlier:

“A survey of employers showed that over 70% found college graduates were not well-prepared in skills such as ‘written communication,’ ‘working with numbers/statistics,’ ‘critical/analytical thinking,’ and second-language proficiency.”

(3) We must prohibit all foreign funding of American schools, for the same reason that we do not allow foreign entities to contribute to U.S. political campaigns. Most urgently:

(a) We must stop all monetary and in-kind donations from Qatar, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia (whether by their governments or individuals). One of the many examples of the insidious nature of such external influence is Georgetown University’s “Bridge Initiative,” which has engaged in chronic whitewashing of jihad and Islamist extremism, which is having a profoundly disturbing impact on students.

(b) We must also stop the communist Chinese government from creating cultural subversion centers on our college, high school and elementary school campuses, known benevolently as “Confucius Institutes” — and stop taxpayer-funded schools from paying China to set up such subversion centers. While Americans are told that these centers are “providing Chinese language and cultural teaching resources and services worldwide… and contributing to the development of multiculturalism and the building of a harmonious world,” a recent report by the U.S. Senate revealed that they are created and utilized to spread pro-communist propaganda among American children. We must also stop Chinese grants to U.S. scientists, especially given China’s long history of stealing/pilfering the most advanced, cutting-edge American defense technologies.

(4) We must fix school textbooks in public schools, and any private schools that get any government financing, and prohibit schoolbooks from companies that have any ownership by any foreign shareholders.

(5) We must ensure that, as President Trump recent policy announcement formalized, no U.S. taxpayer money can be used to enable any educational institution to fund/allow the incitement of hate against Jews, or boycotts against Israel (or any other nation).

(6) We must hire Christian and Jewish history experts to root out anti-Christian and anti-Semitic bias in schoolbooks and other educational materials shown to our children, including documentaries and films.

(7) We must hire Constitutional experts to review all high school books for anti-Constitutional and anti-American incitement & historical bias — especially in an age in which, as even CNN pointed out, “Americans know literally nothing about the Constitution.”

(8) We must enforce affirmative action against universities that do not allow professors with differing opinions to be represented.

(9) We must close down the U.S. Department of Education’s highly biased propaganda program called “Access Islam.”

In net, we must firmly resolve to fix the anti-American false narratives that are infecting our youth now, before it’s too late.

How China finally ‘woke’ America

October 12, 2019

Well, the short answer is:  Donald J. Trump. He’s been saying for years that China’s ripping us off. This started way before he decided to run for president.

The rest of this blog post is a reprint from AMAC (the conservative version of AARP) and written by Victor Davis Hanson.

In these times of near civil war, Americans agree on almost nothing. Yet sometime in 2019, almost all of America finally got “woke” on China.

For years, our leaders had yawned about Silk Road neo-imperialism in Africa and Asia, and gross abuses of human rights against Chinese religious minorities and political dissidents.

Almost every assumption Washington made, both by Democratic and Republican administrations, was logically flawed at best. And at worst, these calculations were a weird mix of conservative commercial greed, liberal political correctness, and shared screwball naivete.

American trade and political appeasement were never interpreted by Beijing as magnanimity to be reciprocated, but always as weakness to be exploited. It was always ludicrous to think that the more concessions on trade and human rights the United States gave, the more China would Westernize and begin to resemble America or an EU nation.

Even sillier was the old shibboleth that China’s embrace of capitalist reforms—as if by some unwritten, determinist economic law—would lead to constitutional government. But the ability to buy a new cellphone never ensures the right to vote for a candidate of one’s choice.

Instead, all China did was auction off large sections of its new and more efficient economy to crony communist pseudo-capitalists and corrupt provincial officials in order to modernize the country, beef up the military, warp the international trading system—and make itself very rich.

Why did America act in such a suicidal way on China?

Cheap Chinese labor and lax American laws motivated hundreds of U.S. corporations to shut down their domestic assembly plants and relocate to China. At least at first, they were free to pay substandard wages and were mostly unregulated.

Once American businesses got hooked on mega-profits, the Chinese government slowly started stealing their technology, infringing on copyrights and patents, dumping their own merchandise on the world market at prices below production costs, running up huge trade surpluses and manipulating their currency.

But by then, American corporations were so addicted to laissez-faire profit-making that they turned a blind eye and paid their hush money.

Universities cashed in too, both by setting up lucrative satellite campuses in China and admitting tens of thousands of Chinese citizens. These Chinese students paid full tuition (and sometimes premiums and surcharges), turning once cash-strapped campuses into profitable degree mills.

Most college deans and presidents simply ignored the dreadful human rights record of China, not to mention occasional expatriate espionage rings designed to steal engineering and high-tech research.

If profits had blinded corporations to exploitive Chinese partnerships, political correctness conveniently offered academia and the media political cover—as if a mostly monoracial China was a 1.3 billion-person diverse “other” with historical grievances against a supposedly racist America.

The result was that everyone profited and all remained willfully blind to the ascendant cutthroat and dictatorial colossus.

The domestic winners in the appeasement of Communist China were the two American coasts—the New York financial industry, the Washington political lobbying nexus, Silicon Valley’s high-tech companies, and the coastal mega-research universities such Harvard, Stanford, and Yale.

Suddenly, the intellectual and informational classes could sell their wares in a new global market, and they profited enormously.

Few cared about the “losers” in the now-hollowed-out Midwest and in rural America. For corporate America, domestic muscular labor could be easily and cheaply replaced by millions of Chinese workers. Outsourcing and offshoring pulled investment capital out of America and put it overseas, as Chinese-assembled products brought far greater profits.

Academics could not have cared less that the deplorables and the working classes were being wiped out, given their politically incorrect social and cultural views.

What finally woke America up were two unforeseen developments.

First, the Chinese overreached and systematically began militarizing neutral islands in the South China Sea. They derided international commercial treaties.

In racist fashion, they treated Asian and African countries as if they were 19th-century colonies. And they apologetically lifted technology from America’s biggest and most powerful corporations to turn China into something akin to George Orwell’s “1984.”

Meanwhile, Beijing began rounding up dissidents, cracking down in Hong Kong and “re-educating” millions of Muslims in detention camps. All that brazenness finally drove the left to drop its multicultural blinders and accept the truth of renegade Chinese oppression.

Second, Donald Trump got elected president, all the while screaming that the Chinese emperor had no clothes. The cheerleaders finally listened and admitted that China had been buck naked after all.

Now we will learn whether America woke up just in time or too late. Either way, no one will credit the loud Trump for warning that China was threatening not just the U.S. but the world as we have known it.

Most of them really are Communists

October 5, 2019

One nation under Democrat demolition. I have pointed out before (hat-tip Trevor Loudon) the scary high number of Socialists & Communists in our government. It used to be sort of under the radar, but with the likes of Bernie Sanders -who tries to soften the edges of his communism be calling it “Democratic Socialism”, and AOC along with most of the candidates running for president on the Democrat side, it’s becoming more apparent that they completely want to dismantle capitalism in the name of equality.

This from the Foundation for Economic Freedom:  Personal freedom thrives in capitalism, declines in government-regulated economies, and vanishes in communism. What is the Democrat Party trying to do more than anything? Gain more control over us. They tell us what kind of cars we can drive by forcing the car companies to produce many, many more electric cars that the market really wants. They force “meatless Mondays” on us. They threaten to do away with all fossil fuels (while attached to every form of electronic device and flying to and fro in private jets). They have determined what kind of light bulbs we can buy, what kind of health insurance, or now tell us private health insurance needs to go away so we can have “Medicare for All.” More government control.

And all the while they are telling us we don’t need God. They discriminate against Christians but give every opportunity to Muslims in the name of diversity. The teaching of morals or any reverence for a higher being has been eliminated from schools and the public square. Why? Because they, the government elites, want to replace God with themselves. And the cretins in the 116th Congress are going a good job of it. Take a look.

Okay, I know I’ve been lazy. But this is worth posting.

August 8, 2019

In my own defense it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s just that I’ve been busy with my fingers in a lot of pies so I have not been blogging. This post doesn’t count as a blog because it’s just a video ripped from YouTube, but it’s still important that you see this.

There’s another gubernatorial recall effort underway in California. Even the libs are sick of it.

Love to see this spread across the Blue states as a wave of the future. I’d also love to hear your comments. Will it be ‘buh-bye’ Gavin Newsom or not?

The slipping away of our First Amendment

July 15, 2019

We’re losing it folks, our First Amendment rights are slipping fast. All in the name of fairness, social justice and all that crap. Consider this.

We must all fight back or soon there won’t be anything to fight for.
