You mustn't demoralize yourself

 Vasko Kohlmayer has an article that claims that Male Pregnancy: The Greatest Miracle of All

By now you may have heard of the left’s latest insistence that we drop the expression “pregnant women” in favor of “pregnant people.” By using this phrase, they wish to emphasize that it is not only women who can conceive and carry children. According to the woke, men can now also partake in the joys of pregnancy.
This is surely a remarkable position to take by those who routinely mock the virgin birth of Jesus as narrated by the New Testament.
As you may know, most of our science-oriented woksters think the notion of a woman conceiving by divine intervention is a completely ridiculous idea that could only be believed by a backward ancient culture. And yet, these very same people have apparently no problem believing that a biological male can become pregnant.
If you ask this writer, the latter is a much greater miracle.
Of course, we all know that men can not become "pregnant" because they simply do not the requisite equipment. This is simply part of the Left's strategy to demoralize people, quite literally. By forcing you to speak a lie, they cause you to lose your moral authority, literally "demoralize" you.  This is why you must not participate in demoralizing yourself.

Who's not paying their fair share again?

 Eric Utter points out that 61% Of Americans paid no taxes in 2020. Who's greedy.

Incredibly, in 2020, approximately 61% of Americans paid no federal income taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center. Therefore, approximately 39% of Americans paid all federal income taxes. They are rewarded for this staggering largess by being told they need to "pay their fair share." Their "fair share," one might logically surmise, would be around 39% of the federal income taxes paid, not 100%. The top 20% of income earners pay about 67% of federal taxes. "Progressive," you know. They should be lauded as pillars of the community, as not only the most productive, but the most charitable folks in society. (Whether they wanted to be or not.) Instead, they are called "greedy" by the self-same people who receive the benefits of this mass income redistribution.
Literally stupefying.

Alec Baldwin Doesn't Deserve The Benefit Of The Doubt

J. R. Dunn has a post at the American Thinker in which he says that No, let's not be kind to Alec Baldwin, not least because the incident is looking more like a crime instead of an "accident." I have to agree with Dunn. Baldwin doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt or our pity.  He has been an arrogant loud mouth on a subject about which he knows next to nothing.

Sorry.

Sinister is the word for it

 I recently visited the doctor for one of my two visits a year.  During his examination he asked me whether I had gotten the third shot, meaning the booster.  I said that I did see any point to a booster, since the need for a booster indicated the vaccine didn't work in the first place, and thus I questioned the effectiveness of the booster.  I also indicated that the insistence that everyone get the shot suggested to me some possible sinister motives.  As it turns out, I may have been right.

Andrea Widburg has a post at the American Thinker entitled Did the World Economic Forum admit something very unnerving? I have repeatedly asked what is driving the vehement insistence that everyone must get vaccinated, despite the loss of Americans' constitutional rights, and at the cost of so many people being forced out of important jobs.

There’s a saying that even paranoid people have enemies. Sometimes, you’re right to be suspicious—and when it comes to the vaccines, a lot of people have been very suspicious. Some of these concerns have been about the vaccine’s efficacy, some of them have been about the side effects and risks, and some have been about the specific risks of forcing vaccines on people who are already immune because they’ve had COVID. Then there is a much deeper concern that the vaccines are injecting permanent substances in the body that support a “transhumanist” agenda. The newest video from the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) isn’t going to put that last concern to rest.
Say, what? Transhumanism? So, as it turns out there IS an unspoken sinister agenda.
As for that last point, those who worry about the vaccines may be on to something. At The Conservative Treehouse, Sundance reports on a new WEF video celebrating a universal COVID pass that would allow people to travel anywhere around the globe and go into any facility anywhere with this single pass proving their vaccination status.
Never mind, for now, the fact that the vaccines’ efficacy is proving to be minimal, at best. (The J&J vaccine is now down to 3% efficacy.) The point is that, in this brave new world, unless you’re vaccinated, you’re not going to be allowed to go anywhere or do anything. You won’t just be a second-class citizen. You’ll have no life at all—something that’s already started here in America, with leftist policies leading to thousands of firings across the country.
...snip...
Currently, proof of vaccine status is dependent on paperwork and registration in computer systems. If for some reason you got the shot on the sly without that paper proof or being entered in the system, it would be as if you never got the vaccine. Sure, a blood test may prove that you’re immune, but it’s impossible to tell if that’s from natural immunity (which Joe Biden and everyone on his side of the aisle says doesn’t count) or from getting a vaccine (which is the cattle chute into which we’re being herded, whether we’re on our way to a glorious future or the abattoir.)
If a blood test cannot prove whether we’ve been vaccinated, what the heck is the WEF? talking about?
The suspicion is that the vaccine may place a permanent marker of sorts in the blood. And if the vaccines place a marker in the blood, what else may they be placing in the blood, and what do these other things actually do? Certainly no one who has gotten the jab has been informed about this, if true.  But given the WEF globalist goals, sinister seems to be an appropriate word.

Gaslighting The American Public

 Vasko Kohlmayer has an article today at the American Thinker that points out that the The Great Struggle Of Our Time: The Battle For Reality. Vasko makes the point that the Left is unashamedly gaslighting us at every turn. As an example, he takes the issue of so called "transgenderism." As Vasko writes:

The great battle of our time is a battle about the very nature of reality. More precisely, what the two sides war over on the most fundamental level is what constitutes truth and how it should be determined.
To shed light on this dynamic, let us take one of the heated controversies of the present time. For this we choose transgenderism. This is an especially suitable example for two reasons: this issue is highly divisive and polarizing, and it delineates the opposing camps sharply and clearly.
As you may know, transgender advocates claim that biological males can become women and vice versa.
Understandably, many people find this claim rather far-fetched. For one thing, it does not feel true, given that the evidence of our senses seems to refute it. When, for example, people look at transgender “women” – i.e., biological men who say that they are women – most people immediately recognize that these are not real females. What most people see is men who pretend to be girls. This is how the human mind – in the vast majority of instances – interprets sensory input that it receives upon encountering such persons.
And, of course, Vasko goes on to prove that in fact there really are no "transgender" people. Men can not in fact become women and vice versa. In fact, these people are simply confused men and women. But what to make of the Left's vehement insistence that transgenderism is a thing?
If this flagrant subversion of fact was confined only to the transgender movement, that by itself would be reason enough for serious concern.
But here is something truly alarming: This kind of wholesale denial of reality is emblematic of the whole of the American political left as it stands in 2021. Whereas before such levels of absurdity were mostly the domain of the left’s fringes, today they permeate the whole of it. This, of course, includes the mainstream of the Democrat party.
...snip...
Gaslighting is now an integral part of the left’s every move, and it is sowing confusion and wreaking havoc everywhere. The gaslighters have already managed to disorient many people and weaken their hold on reality. They correctly sense that if they can press sufficiently hard, they will be able to take advantage of the disarray and implement their godless, nihilistic, inhuman, love-deprived and freedom-negating agenda.

Can the Blue States Peacefully Separate from the Red States?

 J. Robert Smith has an article at the American Thinker entitled The Prospect Of A National Divorce. Kurt Schlichter has made of side hustle out of writing 6 novels showing what would happen if we did indeed have a "national divorce." As Schlicter says in the foreward to each novel, these books are a warning, not a how to manual.

After laying out the many reasons why people on both sides think a national divorce might just be a better than the alternative, Smith tells us that in fact conservatives should not, under any circumstances, give in to this thinking.

By all means, an amicable divorce is better than violent separation. Better if sober minds on both sides negotiated equitable terms. Better to say, “Goodbye” with handshakes than bayonets and bullets.
...snip...
Perhaps we should be bolder in our vision of America? Perhaps we should proclaim our commitment to the outright defeat of this leftist scourge and a restoration of liberty, a moral society, and honest government across this land -- a restoration that will astound a watching world.

In fact, this sort of talk reflects a profound lack of faith. The Left will never be satisfied to control just the blue states. Oh sure, they will take it for now, but understand that the Left will look at this "national divorce" as just a good first step. For proof, just look at the war they have waged on guns. We have an absolute right to keep and bear arms. Period. But we have given up little bits of our right to appease the Left, who looks at each gun control effort as a "good first step." We need to take the words of our own Senator Jesse Helms:

“Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line -- and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?”
For those of us who claim faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, it behooves us to stay the course, and begin pushing back on the entire project of the Left. This is our country, not theirs.
