  1. The Democrats’ efforts to undermine our military are proceeding as planned.


    “The military is having recruitment and retention issues unlike any in decades, almost all are self-inflicted, and the radical Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden administration seems determined to fulfill Obama’s goal of reducing our military to pre-World War II levels.”

    “Amid the chaos and destruction created by turning our military into a regimented version of WokeU, Republicans on the Senate Armed Services Committee have had enough and are directly addressing a core problem that is severely damaging our nation’s military.

    Roll Call reports (archive link):

    The Senate Armed Services Committee has called on the Defense Department to halt its programs to prevent and root out extremism in the ranks.

    The report accompanying the Senate’s National Defense Authorization Act, which was made public late Monday, states the committee’s view that “spending additional time and resources to combat exceptionally rare instances of extremism in the military is an inappropriate use of taxpayer funds, and should be discontinued by the Department of Defense immediately.”

    The language has not previously been reported in the press. While not legally binding on the Pentagon, it appears to send a signal of congressional opposition to efforts to counter extremist narratives in the military . . . .

    The Committee’s approval hinged on the vote of Independent Maine Sen. Angus King.

    Roll Call continues:

    While the Senate report language suggests the committee as a whole supports halting counter-extremism training and analysis, the same document reveals that the committee approved including that section of the report by only the narrowest of margins: 14-12.

    Every Republican on the committee voted for the motion, and every Democrat voted against it. Maine Independent Sen. Angus King’s vote in favor of the language tipped the balance in the GOP’s favor.

    This is where I would normally urge you to read the rest, but don’t bother. I’ll sum it up for you: military bad, military a cesspit of extremism, and even if it’s not, even one trained active duty military member or veteran poses an existential threat to the entire U.S. government.”

  8. There are hundreds of millions on these type of drugs worldwide.


    “A $15 billion hustle? Expert says pill-prescribing psychiatrists KNEW that depression isn’t caused by low serotonin levels – as landmark study shows that pricy drugs do little to help mental health

    Dr Jonathan Raskin said he had been concerned the theory was ‘incomplete’ for ‘a while’

    He added that in many cases antidepressants may be prescribed because it was ‘easier’ than putting them through more time-intensive treatments

    This week a landmark UK study called into question society’s ever-growing reliance on antidepressants”

  10. “A Pandemic of the Vaccinated: President Biden tests positive for COVID-19”


    “President Biden has tested positive for COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated and double boosted. Or perhaps it was because he’s vaccinated and boosted.

    In July of 2021 he said this was impossible, lying to the American public about the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines.”

    “That guarantee from Biden was significant. After that statement, there was a multi-pronged effort to scapegoat the continuation of the “pandemic” on the unvaccinated. Dr. Fauci blamed the unvaccinated for “propagating” the latest outbreak, saying we need to “do something to get them to be vaccinated.”

    That term do something suggested action. State governments and cities began issuing their own vaccination requirements. New York City led the way, requiring “proof of at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine for a variety of activities for workers and customers — indoor dining, gyms and performances — to put pressure on people to get vaccinated.”

    The media called for more extreme measures, demanding Biden institute a “no-fly list for unvaccinated adults.” They called for mandates. They begged for the federal government to raise “the costs of remaining unvaccinated.” Thankfully, they didn’t get much of what they asked for. COVID-19 cases are rising in many of the most vaccinated states, including California. The mandates and the vaccines haven’t stopped the spread.”

  11. Who ordered the Code Red?!!!!

    “Trump gave order to ‘make sure’ Jan. 6 rally was ‘safe event,’ Pentagon memo shows

    Gen. Milley’s recollection undercuts months-long effort by Democrats to suggest Trump wanted to incite violence: many key questions left unanswered.”


    “House Democrats’ marquee summer show of primetime investigative hearings ended Thursday night where it began: unable or unwilling to answer essential questions about the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.”

    Chief among them: If Donald Trump wanted to incite violence that fateful day, as his critics suggest, then why did he order the Pentagon to have a large military force ready to quell a disturbance? And why did a Democrat-led Congress turn down the assistance of pop National Guard troops in the face of intelligence warnings about violence?

    By their own admission, Democrats set up the hearings to evade such scrutiny. They declared any questions about what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew about the potential for Jan. 6 violence and when she knew it were off limits.

    Secret Service agents were never called to testify in public about whether former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s story about Trump trying to force his limousine to go to the Capitol were true. And questions about how those in charge of Capitol security responded to FBI and Homeland Security pre-event warnings about potential violence were never asked, much less answered.

    Instead, the Jan. 6 committee put on hearsay testimony from Hutchinson and released partial transcripts or video snippets of testimony without allowing Republicans or Trump’s own lawyers to cross-examine witnesses or challenge the narrative offered to the American public.

    “It’s the first time this has happened in my lifetime since McCarthyism, and it’s despicable,” said famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, a lifelong Democrat who voted for Joe Biden in 2020. “The idea that they would interview this witness and allow her to testify to hearsay about the president jumping toward the wheel, without first asking the eye- and ear- witnesses. I’ve never heard of a lawyer doing that in my 16 years of practicing law. … It’s not only unethical, it’s not only unfair, it’s bad lawyering.”

    Dershowitz said the committee Democrats and two anti-Trump Republicans — Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger — created a clear perception with their performance of being “partisan zealots” rather than truth-seekers.

    Former career federal prosecutor David Sullivan said Thursday that the entire Jan. 6 accountability process — both at the Justice Department and the congressional hearings — raised questions of fairness and gave viewers a reason to tune out what proved to be “very scripted” interrogations. He said Democrats likely would have gained more credibility and traction if they had let Republicans offer contrary evidence and engaged in true cross-examination.

    “Legal scholars are very troubled by the way these hearings are being conducted,” Sullivan said. “There is no due process. For people who don’t have an agenda to promote, these [hearings] are Stalinist. And I hate using that term.

    Throughout the summer, Democrats have argued that Trump intended and eventually succeeded in inciting the violence on Jan. 6. “The select committee has found evidence about a lot more than incitement here, and we’re gonna be laying out the evidence about all of the actors who were pivotal to what took place on Jan. 6,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said at outset of the hearings.

    But the hearings have been undercut by a fundamental fact: Trump’s actions before the riot began included urging supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” express their opinions and ordering his top aides to ensure there was a large contingent of National Guard troops at the ready to ensure no trouble ensued.

    A Capitol Police timeline obtained by Just the News shows the Trump Pentagon first offered National Guard troops to the Capitol Police on Jan. 2, 2021, four full days before the event. The police turned down the offer but then began to have second thoughts. The Capitol Police then asked their political minders — the House sergeant at arms chief among them — for permission to accept the troops on Jan. 4 but were turned down on the ground that such a show of force would create bad “optics,” the records show.

    But the most compelling piece of evidence that Trump wanted to thwart — rather than incite —violence is contained in a lengthy memo written by the Pentagon inspector general that chronicled the assistance the Defense Department offered Congress both ahead of and during the riot.

    In it, the IG recounts a fateful meeting on Jan. 3, 2021 in the White House when then-acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller and Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with Trump on national security matters.

    The complete passage — hardly mentioned by Democrats at the hearings or the news media covering them — is worth absorbing in its entirety.

    “Mr. Miller and GEN Milley met with the President at the White House at 5:30 p.m.,” the IG reported. “The primary topic they discussed was unrelated to the scheduled rally. GEN Milley told us that at the end of the meeting, the President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021, and Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, ‘We’ve got a plan and we’ve got it covered.'”

  12. My mother drove us rather than us being able to walk and guess what? The first frost, you know what was happening? You had to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window. That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why for the longest time, Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation,” Biden said.

    Huh? Say what? Oh never mind. The White House said he didn’t mean what he said….what the heck did he say?

  13. If i read your first link correctly, the answer to the lack of recruits is to let the armed forces enroll Nazis.

    Mom’s boyfriend is the main suspect in any post pubescent child rape. All this focus on immigration status has allowed people to ignore the real question; should a 10 year old rape victim be allowed an abortion


  14. By creating new categories or identies are we guiding decision making or are we simply decribing what is already there? On one hand, giving people options usually results in a choice yet if we remove the option the behavoir will probably still be there. In all liklihood yes. Would it be acceptable, probably not. Labels allow us to understand and normalize.

    Speaking of which, I’m not a big fan of psychology or psychiatry but prefer the latter. Seretonin science is pretty sketchy and the profit motive distorts everything. However, without medication some people would either kill themselves or be institutionalized. I know the difference between my brother on meds and off meds and the difference is huge. Meds have allowed him to have a normal life.

    Yes, I know people who should not take antidepressants esp young people. And the side effects aren’t worth it for many. And the withdrawal effects are severe for others. But we need to remember it does work for certain people.

    I’d say remove the profit motive and usuage and prescriptions will go down
