  1. Ya’ think?


    “Revelations this week of FBI efforts to develop intelligence sources inside the Catholic Church elicited howls of protest — from Capitol Hill, the Church and an FBI whistleblower.

    Amid the latest revelations of political bias and retaliation by the FBI, Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs is calling for the increasingly polarizing law enforcement agency to be purged of politicized personnel and possibly defunded.

    “I think if I could still be shocked — after having been in Congress for a while — this was one of the most shocking things that I’ve seen,” Biggs told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Wednesday. “When you start finding out that they were trying to actually move into infiltrate, etc., you go, ‘What is their purpose?’ Do they think that if you’re an orthodox, believing and practicing Catholic, somehow that’s anti-American?”

    Declaring that “the FBI has lost its way,” Biggs said, “[I]f we’re not going to totally defund it and eliminate it — and then keep only those areas that truly support state and local law enforcement — then you’ve got to do a wholesale cleaning out of the FBI.

    “This is such disturbing news because we don’t know what the full extent is. But we do know that the DOJ and the FBI were spying, for instance, on parents and school boards too. So so how broad does this go? And why is it that they are focusing so much on the religious and on those who have a real sincere interest in preserving the their children’s education?”

    “This week’s revelations follow the recent disclosure of a since-retracted January memo generated by the Richmond Field Office characterizing Catholics with a devotion to the traditional Latin Mass as potential violent extremists.

    FBI whistleblower Steve Friend blasted his former agency in an interview on the “Just The News, No Noise” television show earlier this week, alleging that FBI responses to revelations it targeted Catholics are misleading.

    “The FBI was definitely not honest with the American people,” Friend said Tuesday. “This was not just a low-level analyst who was acting on their own and maybe just considering sources from one side of the political spectrum.

    “This was something that was actually put into an operational status. It involved an undercover agent and a type five assessment, which you have to understand is a recruitment tool. It’s where you would put somebody into a parish and have them assess if anybody there might be worthy of maybe pursuing as a paid informant, or a voluntary informant, just to develop that pool of people who would then be willing to actually report back to the FBI on their fellow parishioners because of their beliefs and the things that the FBI now deem to be problematic — most likely pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-border security.”

    Last summer’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade shot the pro-life Catholic Church to the top of the FBI’s target list of domestic political opponents, Friend believes.

    “The Catholic Church, just being the the original force that was so prolific and pushed so hard, especially for that March for Life, until the Roe v. Wade decision was overturned last year, I think that is just top of mind for the Department of Justice as being something that they want to go after,” he said. “Now, they’ve clearly become weaponized, clearly politicized. They are just now an arm of a government that’s going after its political enemies, as opposed to enforcing the rule of law.”

    National Director of “Priests for Life” Frank Pavone told Just The News he was disturbed by the FBI’s actions, which he believes are geared towards political revenge.

    “The idea that the FBI is using Catholic parishes and dioceses to continue to weaponize its power against patriotic believers is indeed disturbing, but not at all surprising,” he said in a statement. “It is completely consistent, first of all, with the behavior and attitudes of the current Democrat [P]arty leadership, which has no regard at all for freedom, faith, or America. It despises the people and wants power for itself, not them. “

  2. “The Crackdown Cometh

    Leaks for me, not for thee”


    “Well, clearly we can’t have dark humor or innocuous memes! Gitmo cages for all!

    The Washington Post went with “charismatic gun enthusiast”:”


    “The New York Times summarized key points in the secret defense documents, which among other things suggested “Ukrainian forces are in more dire straits than their government has acknowledged publicly.” Reading what’s out there, it’s not easy to parse what’s a legitimate intelligence concern in reaction to these leaks and what’s mere embarrassment at having been caught lying, to the public, to would-be U.S. allies the documents show we’ve been spying on, etc.

    You’ll read a lot in the coming days about the dangers of apps like Discord, or of online gaming groups, which counterintelligence officials told the Washington Post today are a “magnet for spies.” The Leaker tale will also surely be framed as reason to pass the RESTRICT Act, the wet dream of creepazoid Virginia Senator Mark Warner, which would give government wide latitude to crack down on “communication technology” creating “undue or unacceptable risk” to national security.

    The intelligence community has itself been massively interfering in domestic news using illegal leaks for years. Remember the “Why Did Obama Dawdle on Russia’s Hacking?” story by David Ignatius of the Washington Post in January of 2017, outing would-be Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn as having been captured in intercepts speaking with a Russian ambassador? That was just the first in a string of leak- or intercept-based news stories that dominated news cycles in the Trump years, involving everything from conclusions of the FISA court to supposedly secret meetings in the Seychelles.

    When civilians or whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange (in jail for an incredible four years now), Reality Winner and now the “Discord Leaker” bring leaked information to the public, the immediate threat is Espionage Act charges and decades of jail time. When a CIA head or a top FBI official does it, it’s just news. In fact, officials talk openly about using “strategic leaks” as a P.R. staple. In a world where media currency is becoming the ultimate power, these people want a monopoly. It’s infuriating.”

    “Ohio Attorney General Sues Charity Claiming Its Helping East Palestine Residents With Spill Recovery”


    “We continue to follow the developments following the train derailment and subsequent major chemical release and controlled burn in East Palestine, Ohio.

    This week, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost sued a man accused of exploiting the disaster with a sham charity he used to collect more than $100,000.

    According to Yost, Mike Peppel said his organization, Ohio Clean Water Fund, was a non-profit acting on behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley and wanted to help the residents after the Feb. 3 Norfolk-Southern toxic train derailment.

    Yost said Peppel pocketed at least $131,000 of the roughly $141,000 raised from more than 3,000 donors.

    “The idea that somebody would so brazenly exploit a disaster situation and the good hearts of people who want to help is unconscionable,” Yost said. “I’m mad as hell about this, and we’re going to make sure this sham charity gets shut down.”

    Yost added representatives of Second Harvest Food Bank had not authorized the partnership cited by Peppel.”

    “Missouri Attorney General Blasts DOD Over Military Doctors’ Support for Puberty Blockers for Children

    Four military doctors advocated for the provision of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormone treatments for children of military parents”


    “In a disturbing story entitled “Pentagon Doctors Claim 7-Year-Olds Can Make Decisions to be Injected with Hormones, Puberty Suppressants,” Fox News recently brought attention to an article written by four military health providers published in the American Journal of Public Health.

    In the article, the four military health professionals, joined by a civilian MD, argued that the “only pathway for children of military members who present with gender dysphoria symptoms is to immediately move towards ‘gender-affirming health care, such as puberty suppression and affirming hormones.’” Even worse, the they “went so far as to claim 7-year-olds can make their own medical decisions” about beginning the gender transformation process.

    “The authors [also] said that on the basis of ‘human rights,’ ‘youths… have an inherent ability and right to consent to gender-affirming therapy’” and “demanded the military train all of its providers on their ideas on gender medical interventions for minors, despite acknowledging that 53% of military-affiliated physicians in the Department of Defense health system indicated they would refuse to prescribe hormones regardless of any training.”

    Most egregiously, the doctors “proceeded to blast clinicians who pause before changing a minor’s gender to see if they would grow out of the dysphoria, calling it ‘unethical’”:

    “Some well-intentioned military-affiliated clinicians may not be aware that a ‘watchful waiting’ approach has a different risk profile than a gender-affirmative approach (which allows for gender identity exploration), and that ‘conversion therapy’ is unethical, harmful, and generally illegal,” they said. “Patients may face ‘gatekeeping’ and major delays in care, including protracted and pathologizing psychiatric evaluations that question patient motives.”

    “[L]aws [banning transgender drugs]… assume that [gender diverse] adolescents and their parents are incapable of understanding the risks and benefits of gender-affirming medical care and then deciding what is in the youth’s best interest,” the doctors continued. “Prior research has found that children can begin participating in their medical decision-making as early as age seven years with gradual increases in decision-making capacity, and adolescents prefer shared decision-making.”

    The article’s authors include the following:

    “David A. Klein [MD, MPH, who] is with the Departments of Family Medicine and Pediatrics, Uniformed Services University, Bethesda, MD, and the Department of Family Medicine, David Grant Medical Center, Travis Air Force Base, CA,” and specializes in “Reproductive health, LGBTQ+ health, Eating disorders [and] Adolescent Medicine

    “Natasha A. Schvey [PhD, who] is with the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology, Uniformed Services University, ” and specializes in “Stigma and Health[,] Body weight and eating disorders, gender identity, [and] children and adolescents“

    “Thomas A. Baxter [DO, i.e. a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, who] is with the Department of Family Medicine, David Grant Medical Center, Travis Air Force Base, CA”

    “Noelle S. Larson [MD, who] is with the Department of Pediatrics, Uniformed Services University, and the Department of Pediatrics, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda” and

    “Christina M. Roberts [MD, MPH, who] is with the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Children’s Mercy Kansas City, and the Department of Pediatrics, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine,” and specializes in adolescent medicine and pediatrics. Dr. Roberts apparently is not professionally associated with the military.

    Readers should note that Children’s Mercy Kansas City funded the “open access fees” for the article. Some digging reveals that “open access fees,” also called “article processing fees,” or “APCs,” “are used by open access journals [like the American Journal of Public Health] in lieu of subscription fees that libraries and readers traditionally have paid to gain access to research articles. APCs shift the burden of journal production costs (editing, peer review, hosting, archiving, preservation), to authors from readers.”

    So Children’s Mercy Kansas City, where Dr. Christina Roberts, the only civilian-associated co-author of the article discussed above, works, paid for the article to be published. Readers are encouraged to review Dr. Christina Roberts’ bio page, available here. How the article came to be published is unclear, as is why four doctors who work at military facilities signed on to a civilian-sponsored article.”

  5. VDH nails it again.

    “Can We Do Anything About America’s Decline?

    The remedies are agreed upon, but the needed medicine is feared more than the disease. Because today, the government is the cause of our many crises.”


    “Twenty-first-century America was on a trajectory of gradual decline—until it began to implode.

    Was the accelerant the COVID-19 pandemic and unhinged lockdowns? Or was the catalyst the woke revolution fueled by the 2020 summer of exempted rioting, looting, arson, and violence? Or was it perhaps the deranged fixation on removing Donald Trump from the presidency and destroying the rule of law in the process? Or all that and more?

    Now with the election of Joe Biden, what had been a fast-tracked decline has accelerated at such an astonishing rate we can scarcely recognize our country.

    Our largest cities are becoming uninhabitable—dilapidated, dangerous, and dysfunctional. The challenge is not just rampant crime, but the realization that if you, the citizen, are stabbed, shot, or beaten up on the street, the perpetrators may well be exempt from most punishments. And the victim either will be forgotten in his misery or, indeed, blamed for bringing such violence upon himself.

    Urban schools are not places of instruction anymore. That fact is accepted by teachers’ unions, whose operative principle seems to be that the more hopeless the idea of educating urban youth is understood to be, the less burdensome the workload, and the greater their hazardous duty pay.

    Urban chain stores are closing down on the principle that if police cannot or will not stop consumer violence and theft, then consumers there should not have any store to buy anything, anyway. If there is no store, how can it be looted or shop-lifted?

    The only mystery remaining is how long these Democrat-controlled, racially charged, and corrupt municipalities can sustain their budgets and pension commitments with increasingly declining revenue. One can tax the well off, and perhaps even gouge them as California does. But one cannot insult and ridicule them in the process. Being highly taxed is one thing, being highly taxed while hated is quite another.

    How eerie that medievalism—defecting, urinating, fornicating, injecting in the street—is relabeled “homelessness—as if the problem is merely a shortage of apartments or tent cities. Somehow cities developed the notion that it was crueler to be told not to pull down one’s pants and defecate in the street than it was for a pedestrian to step into infectious human excrement.

    In the next five years, either cities will seek new governance to reduce taxes, break up municipal unions, mandate charter schools, restore police funding and manpower, recalibrate pensions, and prosecute criminals and corrupt officials—or Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, and a score of others will become Detroit.

    One of the strangest phenomena amid our current debility are the millions of affluent leftists and liberals who have fled their unworkable, now unlivable blue-run, but naturally beautiful cities like San Francisco or Portland. They seem to lack an abstract recognition why they are leaving, or why and how their new chosen destinations are so different and therefore so inviting to them. Is their motto, “I am fleeing what I created, but I still hate those who created what I want”?

    To have a “border problem,” one must have a border. The United States has no southern border.

    Upwards of 7 million illegal entries since the Biden inauguration are proof enough of that tragedy. Mexico brags that 40 million have come into the United States. It urges them to vote Democratic. And it relies on still more illegal entries to ensure yearly increases in its current $60 billion in remittance income sent from its expatriates in the United States. The donors apparently grow fonder of Mexico—the more they are safely distant from it.

    America could close the border tomorrow and actually “make Mexico pay for the wall” by simply slapping a 10 percent export tax on all remittances sent to Mexico. Or we could make it illegal to send money out of the country if one is receiving federal subsidies and aid. Or we could fine employers for hiring those who are here illegally. Or, as a deterrent to future illegal entries, we could immediately deport all who illegally entered and reside in the United States—if they came within the last five years, or if they have a criminal record, or if they are not working and are on public assistance.

    The result would not just be a restoration of American sovereignty, and decline in spiraling social service costs. There would follow better relations with Latin America and Mexico. Both treat us with contempt as a hectoring weakling because, unlike themselves, we do not believe in our own physical space, our own borders, and our freedom to do as we please rather than what others tell us to do.”

  6. “Dominion vs. Fox News

    Nullifying the First Amendment”


    “The sad, beleaguered competitors of Fox News desperately pray that the billion-dollar lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems will do what they have never been able to do: Topple the TV-news ratings king. And they are happy to sacrifice the First Amendment in order to do that.

    The British press — which has been losing to Rupert Murdoch’s media empire even longer than the American press has — is especially hungry.

    “Is Dominion’s $1.6bn defamation lawsuit a death blow for Murdoch and Fox News?” screams one eager headline in the Guardian.

    Another headline last month in that same left-wing newspaper announced: “Dominion lawsuit is just the start as Fox faces losing friends — and viewers.”

    Loses viewers? Apparently, the “mainstream media” is so blinded by hatred for Fox News that they are not interested in facts. Or refuses to report them.

    Fox News routinely dominates half the cable news audience in America, leaving the other half to be divided among all its “competitors” like MSNBC and CNN — combined. Even more alarming for them, Fox News beats all competitors by double digits margins among independent viewers and continues to attract more and more self-identified Democrats.

    According to detailed Nielsen ratings from last December, Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “The Five” were the second- and third-most watched shows in all of cable news among Democrat viewers in the most highly-coveted advertising demographic.

    Perhaps most alarming for competitors, a YouGov poll published last month showed Fox News was the “most trusted source” of news in all of television for the previous 52-week period. Fox was deemed “most trusted” by double digit margins over ABC News, CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and state media PBS.

    Apparently, the massive campaign to smear Fox News as some crazed, rightwing disinformation machine is not working. Which is why Fox News’ competitors are now desperately praying that Dominion will prevail in its lawsuit against Fox.

    In the trial, which begins this week in Wilmington, Delaware, Dominion charges that Fox News defamed the company by reporting on claims made by the sitting president of the United States and his lawyers about the reliability of the company’s voting machines during the 2020 election.

    That’s right. Dominion wants Fox News to pay them $1.6 billion for reporting on claims made publicly by a sitting president. About an election.

    Reporting on such public claims made by a president about the veracity of an election is not some far-distant, unintended, downstream consequence of the First Amendment. It is precisely what the First Amendment was designed to protect.

    Free speech by a free press reporting on an election is the whole point.

    For months, the failing competitors of Fox News — including once-serious newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post — have breathlessly heralded stories about text messages among Fox News producers and top hosts in which they debated the veracity of the public claims being made by the president and his legal team.

    These are nothing more than the internal newsroom deliberations among journalists working in the chaotic weeks after a highly explosive election.

    But the most damning indictment of the whole case against Fox News comes from a filing made by Dominion’s own lawyers asking the court to exclude the First Amendment from the trial.”

  7. Un-American perverts exploiting children and destroying parental rights..

    “The Navy is hiding children’s medical records (trans, STDs) from parents”


    “For everyone who has been arguing that the American military isn’t going woke (leading to a dearth in recruiting), you might want to look at this story. Over the weekend, a video popped up on Twitter showing a Navy Nurse Practitioner in Bahrain giving a presentation to military parents regarding pediatric healthcare policies. The audience was clearly shocked to learn that military parents of children aged 12 or older could not access their children’s medical records online. And children as young as 15 or 16 can make medical appointments for specific issues without parental notification. Those “issues” are, of course, gender identity, pregnancy, STDs, and mental health. One of the fathers in the crowd was clearly incredulous. (Postmillennial)

    On Friday, a video was posted to Twitter in which a Navy Nurse Practitioner addressed Navy personnel in Bahrain about medical policy regarding their children when a concerned father spoke up.

    The Navy spokesperson explained the Navy medical policy regarding children and said, “This generation is definitely more open with experiencing and experimenting and so I ask those tough questions. Do you identify as a male, female, non-binary? If you have a crush on someone is it a male or a female? Do you have a significant other and yes, I’m asking them if they are having sex.”

    You really need to watch the video to get the full impact of the cavalier attitude adopted by this Nurse Practitioner as she explains this policy as if it’s the most normal thing in the world.”

  12. People with a functioning brain stay out of these Dem run “Blue Zones.”


    “Everyone knows about Chicago’s sky-high murder rate, but this kind of wanton lawlessness, apparently beyond the power of the police and normal citizens to control, is more devastating to the life of a city. Who in his right mind wants to be anywhere near Chicago?

    One also notices that pretty much all of the rioters are black. Could it be that telling young people that they live in a hopelessly racist and oppressive society, and therefore they can never get ahead but instead are owed a living or “reparations” of some sort, is a terrible idea?”

    “We live in a sick and corrupt society, but nevertheless, due to the lingering vestiges of the far better culture we enjoyed in the past, most people are still law-abiding. Crime could be controlled, if we wanted to control it. Decline is a choice. But those who govern blue cities have opted for decline, which continues to accelerate. No wonder that people are abandoning blue cities in droves.”

  13. Meanwhile, the same Democrats and the Al/Jesse grifter class, continue to refuse to acknowledge the problem. Because the problem is them and their supporters.

    Time for some manufactured outrage!



    “Citing losses of “tens of millions of dollars a year,” Walmart announced they will be closing four stores in Chicago. Four other Walmart stores will remain open in the city.

    The company issued a statement on Tuesday which said:

    The simplest explanation is that collectively our Chicago stores have not been profitable since we opened the first one nearly 17 years ago – these stores lose tens of millions of dollars a year, and their annual losses nearly doubled in just the last five years. The remaining four Chicago stores continue to face the same business difficulties, but we think this decision gives us the best chance to help keep them open and serving the community.

    … We have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the city, including $70 million in the last couple years to upgrade our stores and build two new Walmart Health facilities and a Walmart Academy training center.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, a company spokesman said “there was no single cause for the increase in losses and that theft wasn’t a driving factor,” a claim that defies belief.

    Outgoing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot weighed in on the decision saying, “I’m incredibly disappointed that Walmart, a strong partner in the past, has announced the closing of several locations. Unceremoniously abandoning these neighborhoods will create barriers to basic needs for thousands of residents.”

    Perhaps Lightfoot should have thought about the “basic needs” of her constituents before implementing her “soft-on-crime” policies which have made Chicago one of the most crime-ridden cities in America.

    Additionally, Chicago voters should have thought about their own basic needs before electing an ever more progressive mayor to replace her.

    In December, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon told CNBC that the “lax approach from prosecutors” to retail theft would lead to price increases and store closures.

    Nevertheless, community leaders are incensed – and indignant – over the closures.”

    A sixteen-year-old boy was supposed to pick up his two younger brothers last week when he rang the doorbell of the wrong Kansas City, Missouri, house. A man came to the door and shot Ralph Yarl in the head — then shot him again after he fell to the ground.

    Yarl stumbled to one house, then another, and then a third before anyone helped the Black teen, who was released from the hospital Sunday and is recovering at home.”

    “‘Attacking America’: Kamala Harris Says Pro-Life Policies Target ‘Our Democracy’ At Abortion Rally”


    “Vice President Kamala Harris made a surprise appearance at an abortion rally in Los Angeles on Saturday, a day after the Supreme Court issued an administrative stay regarding restrictions on mifepristone, the drug used in about half of all abortions nationwide.

    Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito granted a five-day pause on Friday after the Department of Justice requested the court intervene following a ruling by Texas Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, which paused FDA approval of the abortion drug. In her remarks, Harris urged rallygoers to “stand up and fight,” describing the situation as a “critical moment” in U.S. history.

    “When you attack the rights of women in America, you are attacking America,” Harris told the crowd of a few hundred people. “We have seen attacks on voting rights, attacks on fundamental rights to love and marry the people that you love, attacks on the ability of people to be themselves and be proud of who they are.”

    Harris warned against pro-life voices, who she says “attack fundamental rights,” claiming that they “by extension, attack our democracy.” The vice president also criticized the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade in 2022, saying the justices “took a constitutional right that has been recognized from the people of America.”

    “I fundamentally believe that you can gauge the strength of a democracy based on the strength of women in that democracy,” Harris told the crowd.”

  16. Kizzie,

    I’ll wait until we know more. These things tend to be grossly exaggerated and flat out lied about by the media, Democrats, and the Al/Jesse faction.

    I see from the AP photo the usual guilt ridden, liberal, white women have joined the protests already, which is a red flag for me.

    Let’s see some actual facts first.

    What they have said doesn’t really back up what protesters are saying.

    “He did not address whether race was a factor in the shooting; the Kansas City police chief said that, so far, race does not appear to be a factor.”


    “At a news conference on Sunday, Police Chief Stacey Graves said the shooter was taken into custody Thursday and placed on a 24-hour hold but released after consultation with the prosecutor’s office.”

    Let’s not fall for another farce. Let’s wait and see.

    It was amusing in the Luther book that there was debate over the meaning of the word “is.” It remindrd me of Clinton when I heard that, but in Luther the debate was regarding the elements of communion and Jesus said, “This is my body . . .” Was the is literal or not?
