  1. Yet another petty move by a petty old fool.

    He just can’t tolerate anyone who’s proud to be an American.

    “Lee Greenwood’s Dismissal From Arts Council is Latest Petty Move by Biden

    Biden is so much worse than Obama. EVERYTHING is partisan with him. If military advisory boards and the national arts council are partisan then even the most serious matter will be partisan to him.”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/09/lee-greenwoods-dismissal-from-arts-council-is-latest-petty-move-by-biden/

    “We learned a few days ago that Biden removed Lee Greenwood, the artist behind “God Bless the U.S.A.,” from the National Arts Council.

    Greenwood told Fox & Friends that Biden’s administration alerted him via email. Not a phone call or letter. An email.

    President George W. Bush appointed Greenwood to the arts council. President Barack Obama reappointed him!

    Of course, President Donald Trump reappointed Greenwood as well. He also plays “God Bless the U.S.A.” at many of his rallies.

    But come on. Obama even reappointed him.

    “It’s meant for all people, not just for a particular political party,” Greenwood said about his song.

    It’s true. Only a moron would think it’s a conservative and Republican song. But since it has connections to ORANGE MAN BAD then we must get rid of Greenwood and his song!

    Greenwood does so much for veterans and the military. He has a televised show coming up on October 12 in Huntsville, AL:

    We always honor our veterans and want to particularly point out the fact we have this amazing show coming up October 12th in Huntsville, Alabama at the Bronze Center and set aside a lock of tickets which I do at most of our events.

    This is a very special television production and more importantly we want to make sure that veterans and their caregivers can come to our performance. It’s going to be star-studded with 40 different singers singing the 40 years of hits that we have had. So, if your listeners will go to our website LeeGreenwood.com and adopt a vet. For $100 you can put a vet and caregiver in a seat to watch this amazing television production.

    Petty. So freaking petty.
    When will it stop? It won’t unfortunately. Biden purged Trump’s appointments to military service academy advisory boards, which broke presidential norms.

    Obama kept those appointed to the boards. Trump kept those on the boards appointed by Obama.”

  2. The Age of Progressive Misinformation

    https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/09/the-age-of-progressive-misinformation/

    “The vicious lie that mounted border agents whipped Haitians is only the latest entry in progressives’ vast trove of propaganda.”

    “How does a stupid and ridiculous lie come to be embraced and promulgated by top officials of the United States government?

    Well, as it turns out, it’s easy.

    You start with an easily misinterpreted news photo that seemingly confirms progressive opponents’ assumption about immigration enforcement: that the agents policing our southern border are cruel racists.

    Then you work up a Twitter mob saying that the photo has captured a tableau of hideous abuse.

    You add open-borders advocacy organizations and civil-rights groups denouncing the supposed misconduct in the harshest possible terms.

    You throw on top a vice president and a White House press secretary who have no regard for the truth and are happy to push any narrative convenient to them.

    Finally, as the pièce de résistance, you deploy a president of the United States who is too cynical or doddering to bother with the facts — and who is usually following the crowd rather than leading it — and you get him to make a statement endorsing the ludicrous fictions about the misleading photo.

    This was the path to President Joe Biden’s condemnation of mounted Border Patrol agents for having “strapped” Haiti migrants at Del Rio, Texas; this is what led him to declare that they “will pay” for their “horrible” and “outrageous” behavior.

    Never mind that there was no strapping, that the border agents did nothing wrong besides trying to enforce a border crossing while working for an administration fundamentally uninterested in the task, and that there is an ongoing investigation of the agents — itself a travesty — that Biden was prejudging.

    Sawyer Hackett, an apparatchik running Julian Castro’s PAC, was an early proponent of the whipping lie on Twitter. He tweeted the picture showing a border agent on horseback grabbing at the shirt of a migrant — his reins flying in the air — and said agents were “rounding up Haitian refugees with whips,” and this represented “unfathomable cruelty.”

    It was, to the contrary, entirely fathomable and not the least bit cruel. The agents were, in a common, long-standing practice, using horses because of the difficulty of the terrain, and they were attempting to block migrants from entering the country illegally. They didn’t have whips but were twirling reins to control their horses. Within hours of the photo creating a stir, these facts were readily ascertainable.

    Even Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defended the agents before getting the memo from his superiors that they had become hated figures to be used as punching bags.

    Days later, media stories still made reference to the nonexistent whips supposedly wielded by the agents.

    Advocacy groups simply willed the whip story to be true, and for a swath of America — basically anyone foolish enough to take what Harris and Biden say at face value — they have succeeded.

    Despite the haze of misinformation, the fact-checkers didn’t descend en masse. No Twitter accounts were suspended. All the people who pride themselves on purportedly defending American democracy from falsehoods and propaganda spreading on social media (and there’s unquestionably a lot of it) stood aside or joined the pile-on.

    Press outfits went out of their way to label falsehoods promulgated by President Trump as such. Indeed, they gave every indication that they relished doing it.”

    “Marine Who Criticized Biden Admin’s Afghanistan Withdrawal is Jailed”

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/09/marine-who-criticized-biden-admins-afghanistan-withdrawal-is-jailed/

    “Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller went viral on August 26 when he posted videos of himself criticizing the Biden administration’s Afghanistan withdrawal.

    Scheller’s family told Task & Purpose he is in jail:

    “All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud,” said Stu Scheller Sr. “He was asking for accountability. In fact, I think he even asked for an apology that we made mistakes, but they couldn’t do that, which is mind-blowing.”

    He said that his son is expected to appear before a military hearing on Thursday.

    “They had a gag order on him and asked him not to speak,” the senior Scheller said. “He did, and they incarcerated him. They don’t know what to do with him.”

  5. Boycott Divided Airlines.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/united-airlines-set-to-terminate-593-workers-for-refusing-covid-19-vaccine_4022677.html

    “United Airlines is set to terminate 593 of its employees who have chosen not to comply with the company’s vaccine mandate, the company confirmed to The Epoch Times early Wednesday.

    The company was the first U.S. carrier to mandate vaccines for all domestic employees, having announced its mandate in August. Employees were required to be vaccinated by Sept. 27, otherwise they would be terminated by Oct. 2. Those who refused the vaccine would be terminated outright.

    In a memo to employees on Tuesday, obtained by The Epoch Times, United Airlines Chief Executive Scott Kirby and President Brett Hart said the company would start the process of firing the employees who refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.”

  6. This is how we treat the medical people who have been putting their lives on the line by taking care of Covid-19 patients?

    Unfortunately, this is a planned action to take down our medical system. For over 18 months unjabbed medical personnel were in close contact with very ill Covid patients, and they were hailed as heroes. Now they need to get dangerous toxins injected into their bodies or they will lose their jobs? And hospital administrators are bringing in military personnel to replace them? Military – what’s that all about?

    If these frontline nurses are saying not to get the experimental injection, and are even willing to lose their jobs, then we would do well to listen…

    “Biden’s Vax Mandate To Be Enforced By Fining Companies $70,000 To $700,000?”

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/09/28/bidens-vax-mandate-to-be-enforced-by-fining-companies-70000-to-700000/?sh=f055601c0d40

    “President Joe Biden didn’t just announce a Covid-19 vaccine mandate on companies employing 100 or more people, he plans to enforce it.

    On Saturday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into their $3.5 trillion “reconciliation” bill, passed it out of the Budget Committee, and sent it to the House floor.

    Buried on page 168 of the House Democrats’ 2,465-page mega bill is a tenfold increase in fines for employers that “willfully,” “repeatedly,” or even seriously violate a section of labor law that deals with hazards, death, or serious physical harm to their employees.

    The increased fines on employers could run as high as $70,000 for serious infractions, and $700,000 for willful or repeated violations—almost three-quarters of a million dollars for each fine. If enacted into law, vax enforcement could bankrupt non-compliant companies even more quickly than the $14,000 OSHA fine anticipated under Biden’s announced mandate.

    The Biden Administration has already started implementing its vaccine mandate enforcement blueprint:

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) set precedent this summer and published an emergency Covid-19 rule in the Federal Register taking jurisdiction over and providing justification for Covid-19 being a workplace hazard for healthcare employment.

    Early in September, Biden announced his 100-or-more employee Covid-19 vaccine mandate and tasked OSHA with drafting an enforcement rule to exert emergency vaccine compliance authority over companies with 100 or more employees.

    The legislative provision that passed the Budget Committee raises the OSHA fines for non-compliance 10 times higher – and up to $700,000 for each “willful” or “repeated” violation. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not announced when the House will vote on the reconciliation bill that includes the new OSHA fines.

    If the legislation is enacted, OSHA could levy draconian fines to enforce Biden’s vaccine mandate, a move that could rapidly bankrupt non-compliant companies. The Biden mandate affects employers collectively employing an estimated 80 million workers.

    The Democrats are playing hardball. ”

    “YouTube is banning prominent anti-vaccine activists and blocking all anti-vaccine content”

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/youtube-is-banning-prominent-anti-vaccine-activists-and-blocking-all-anti-vaccine-content/ar-AAOXmdF

    “YouTube is taking down several video channels associated with high-profile anti-vaccine activists including Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who experts say are partially responsible for helping seed the skepticism that’s contributed to slowing vaccination rates across the country.

    As part of a new set of policies aimed at cutting down on anti-vaccine content on the Google-owned site, YouTube will ban any videos that claim that commonly used vaccines approved by health authorities are ineffective or dangerous. The company previously blocked videos that made those claims about coronavirus vaccines, but not ones for other vaccines like those for measles or chickenpox.

    Misinformation researchers have for years said the popularity of anti-vaccine content on YouTube was contributing to growing skepticism of lifesaving vaccines in the United States and around the world. Vaccination rates have slowed and about 56 percent of the U.S. population has had two shots, compared with 71 percent in Canada and 67 percent in the United Kingdom. In July, President Biden said social media companies were partially responsible for spreading misinformation about the vaccines, and need to do more to address the issue.”
