How you know the newscasts lie to you

There's nothing to see here folks, everything is fine.  Worse symptoms from the second COVID shot are nothing to worry about.  No "lasting consequences" is something they simply CANNOT know at this point. Yet they are out there saying it. Does that make you feel safer?

NSA vs. Tucker Carlson - that's a thing???

And finally for today this shameful bit of news.  The NSA is allegedly spying on Tucker Carlson.  Either the government is out of control or Tucker Carlson is lying for ratings.  Either thought is frightening for different reasons.

Woke Olympic hopeful comes in 3rd, disrespects anthem

If you are trying to compete in the Olympics to represent your country and then after qualifying, you disrespect your country, you need to give up your spot on the team to someone who actually wants to represent their country.  Go compete for somewhere that also disrespects America, like say China.  They will need a few more bronze medals because their cheat machine probably is too focused on winning Gold medals and they can't have it look too suspicious.

Her actions were shameful. They were two-faced. How are her teammates who respected the flag and anthem supposed to focus on their sport with this woman selfishly dragging all of the attention to herself? She's harming other teammate competitors' chances with this ridiculous behavior. She does not deserve a spot on the team.   Frankly if the Olympic team does not remove her in favor of someone who wants to compete for her country, they deserve not to win.

Meanwhile in Georgia the 2020 election case grows

I get trying to root out these problems and corrupt officials.  In a way it feels like fighting yesterday's battle today.  But if it can be made visible enough, it might make an impact that helps in 2024.

Via Gateway Pundit:

The Fulton County Elections Board is not so happy with the case brought by Garland Favorito because they have now been added to it.

Several individuals of the Fulton County Elections Board were added to the case last week by the judge. The order handed down by the Georgia judge dismissed several claims brought against governmental entities of Fulton County of sovereign immunity grounds. However, what is not well know is that the judge allowed the five members of Fulton County’s Board of Registration and Elections to be named in the suit.

Gateway Pundit also has a piece about the deepening issues in Maricopa county in Arizona during the 2020 election.

Lawsuit alleges Zuckerberg grants for election officials

Right on the heels of a post talking about president Trump being cleared in the baseless charges levelled against him in New York, there's this story from Breitbart:

A lawsuit filed by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry in October 2020 alleged that an obscure nonprofit organization operated as part of a larger nonprofit founded and largely funded by Silicon Valley billionaire Pierre Omidyar attempted to recruit local election officials to apply for grants from the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).

Landry filed the lawsuit on behalf of the State of Louisiana against CTCL, New Venture Fund DBA Center for Secure and Modern Elections, Dawn Maisel Cole, a private individual; and Full Circle Strategies LLC, “to prevent the injection of unregulated private money into the Louisiana election system.”

But let's be clear, this could go nowhere just like the trumped-up Trump charges in New York. It could be baseless, even though there is probably something to it in my opinion. But it's a lawsuit and that's all it is at this point.  Let's hope Jeff Landry has his facts together on this and the lawsuit succeeds in revealing nefarious activities.

Even if it goes somewhere it may not result in anything significant. Nonetheless, let's hope if it is true it is problematic for Zuckerberg.  He's been a far leftist tool for years and there should be repercussions.  

Meanwhile in NY they've got nothing on Trump

 Via Breaking 911:

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance is not expected to charge former President Donald Trump or the Trump Organization with crimes in its first indictment, according to Donald Trump‘s attorney.

“They just said, ‘When this indictment comes down, he won’t be charged,'” Ron Fischetti told Politico. “We asked, ‘Is there anything else?’ They said, ‘No.’ ”

 Nothing.  Nada.  Bupkis.  If you are surprised, consider yourself an NPC.

Iran's hyperinflation canary in the coal mine

I came across this video this morning on what hyperinflation looks like in Iran.  Iran was facing challenges already because of the sanctions imposed by president Trump.  The video, while informative I think misses the mark on the primary reason for the hyperinflation. Yes, sanctions do contribute to inflation. And the video below shows the impact on Iranians.


As sanctions are imposed it does become harder to get goods, particularly imported goods.  As a result, the scarcity causes prices to rise.  But Venezuela had hyperinflation long before the Trump sanctions started on it.

What else causes inflation?  The money supply.  As a result of COVID, governments around the world, forcing people to stay home, impacting jobs and the economy, started printing money to hand out.  Iran was no exception.
Iran Money Supply M2 was reported at 827.660 USD bn in Mar 2021. This records an increase from the previous number of 787.998 USD bn for Feb 2021. Iran Money Supply M2 data is updated monthly, averaging 223.363 USD bn from Dec 1999 to Mar 2021, with 256 observations. The data reached an all-time high of 827.660 USD bn in Mar 2021 and a record low of 40.504 USD bn in Mar 2002.

In January 2020, pre-pandemic lockdowns worldwide, the money supply in Iran was approximately 550 USD bn.  That means that in the following 18 months the money supply in Iran grew by approximately 50.5%.  Whether that was as a result of the pandemic or sanctions or a combination of the two is relatively immaterial.  The point is to look at what it has done to the economy and people in Iran.  

For hyperinflation Iran is the canary in the coal mine, not Venezuela.  Not because Venezuela doesn't show what hyperinflation can do to ravage an economy and impoverish a citizenry, it clear does show us that.  No the reason the Iran situation is the canary in the coal mine is because the change is relatively recent.  Further, Iran's money supply situation is not unique.  It's a bit extreme compared to some of the more robust economies around the globe but not drastically so.  I took a look at the growth in M2 money supply for the top 12 world economies since January of 2020, pre-pandemic lockdowns compared to the latest available data.  


Compare these numbers to Iran's 50% increase they don't seem too bad. Maybe not terrible for China, Japan and Germany, but the USA and Brazil are at 30%!   In the United States, 1 out of every 4 dollars in circulation has been printed in the last 15 months.  When you increase the money supply by 30% but the economy on COVID recovery is only growing by 6%, that means there are 30% more dollars chasing 6% more goods and services.  As a result, inflation is inevitable.

What does this mean for inflation in the United States? Will it reach levels being seen in Iran?  Probably not.  But will it be bad?  Probably.  Inflation could reach 10% to 15% in the U.S.  That's going to be a shock to the economy and those claiming the inflation will be transitory (like the Federal Reserve) do not appear to have a Plan B in case it isn't transitory.  They can't raise interest rates (which is a brake on inflation) because the U.S. government has generated so much debt it could not afford to pay the interest on the higher rates for its debt.  They are either stuck, or they have another way out (which is a discussion for another time).

The same  situation is true for the other 11 biggest global economies to varying degrees and it will all be exacerbated by smaller economies, many of which have more Iran-like money supply issues.  No one is going to be immune to the inflation because it will be on a global or near-global scale.  The United States did itself no favors by being among the most aggressive money-printers of the Big 12 but they will not be alone in suffering the consequences.  Where Iran has gone, others will surely be following.

Income Inequality -- Please Watch

 Via Economics Explained:

Critical Race Theory is racist

As Depeche Mode said, "people are people". Not according to Critical Race Theory. Thankfully people are standing up to it.


Critical Race Theory according to Britannica:
Critical race theory (CRT), intellectual movement and loosely organized framework of legal analysis based on the premise that race is not a natural, biologically grounded feature of physically distinct subgroups of human beings but a socially constructed (culturally invented) category that is used to oppress and exploit people of colour. Critical race theorists hold that the law and legal institutions in the United States are inherently racist insofar as they function to create and maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites, especially African Americans.

Critical race theory (CRT) was officially organized in 1989, at the first annual Workshop on Critical Race Theory, though its intellectual origins go back much farther, to the 1960s and ’70s. Its immediate precursor was the critical legal studies (CLS) movement, which dedicated itself to examining how the law and legal institutions serve the interests of the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the poor and marginalized. (CLS, an offshoot of Marxist-oriented critical theory, may also be viewed as a radicalization of early 20th-century legal realism, a school of legal philosophy according to which judicial decision making, especially at the appellate level, is influenced as much by nonlegal—political or ideological—factors as by precedent and principles of legal reasoning.) Like CLS scholars, critical race theorists believed that political liberalism was incapable of adequately addressing fundamental problems of injustice in American society (notwithstanding legislation and court rulings advancing civil rights in the 1950s and ’60s), because its emphasis on the equitable treatment under the law of all races (“colour blindness”) rendered it capable of recognizing only the most overt and obvious racist practices, not those that were relatively indirect, subtle, or systemic.

There are many flaws with Critical Race Theory if that definition is correct. If you have a problem with "equal treatment under the law", then you have a problem with equality. If you have a problem with equality, you are racist, sexist and/or other forms of prejudiced. There's no place in a  free society for that sort of belief system.

Dictator Watch - Liz Cheney edition

 A Dictator Watch twice on the same day, after years of not having them?  This time it's about an American supporter of Dictatorship, Liz Cheney.  (With some bonus content on AOC and Chris Wallace)

Via Right Side Broadcast Network:


By the way, if you've ever wondered if Dick Cheney was an Establishment Republican, after seeing no rebuke from him after Liz Cheney has repeatedly made an ass of herself over the past few months, (and no hidden rebuke either or she would have at least moderated her staunch Democrat lean), you need wonder no longer.  He's as far left as she is except in his efforts at war profiteering and thus being a military hawk.     

Dictator Watch - Jun 15, 2021

China in Focus - NTD does a daily report on stories about or impacting China.  They do a great job on stories and do not apologize for China's oppression like the CCP does (or for that matter the current administration in America.

I haven't posted a Dictator Watch post in a long time, but China is a bigger threat to the world than all previous dictatorships I've covered  combined.

I liked them for a hot second. Not now.

Krystal and Saagar claim to be anti-establishment. It turns out they are anti-Trump and even anti-common-sense liberal shills. Art Laffer points out that low wage jobs are being replaced by robots (in a discussion about McDonald's) and they turn it into a racial thing. His choice of wording was ill-advised, in fact downright poor. I'm not excusing that.  But I've followed Art Laffer's interviews for years and this is a mischaracterization of his views that they are offering up as fact. 

But equally importantly, he was making a point about the inevitability of unskilled labor being replaced by robots by pricing themselves out of the market.  This is a real problem, and calling him names does NOTHING to address the problem.

To bash Art Laffer and to misstate his economic policies is is grossly dishonest. To equate him with the establishment GOP is laughable; his policies were frowned upon by the GOP. To say his policies were designed to benefit the rich at the expense of the middle class and the poor is laughable as well. The Laffer curve is something that lays out how lower taxes help everyone. I've explained this in posts years ago. And finally, as someone in the comments on the video mentions, to complain about the deficits under Reagan destroying the American economy for the last 40 years is beyond insane. Reagan created 8% GDP growth and his deficits were a miniscule fraction of what Obama did to the nation and now Joe Biden is doing (Reagan increased the deficit by $1.8 trillion, Obama by $8.6 trillion, and he-whose-name-I-will-not-speak is projected to increase it by $25 trillion by 2024). And Reagan actually accomplished something with his spending - he rebuilt the American military and in the process defeated the communist Soviet Union without a war.

Here's the video in question, though I encourage you not to watch it. 



They lost me in one video with their insipid and ill-informed commentary.  I will not be supporting their channel any longer.

Frank Luntz a fraudulent pollster (apparently)

As late as 2014 I was thinking Frank Luntz was legitimate, but I started seeing his personal opinion overshadowing his focus groups. I stopped being a 'fan'. Now it turns out his focus groups might not be legitimate.  He may be a GOP leaning pollster, but he is no conservative, and he is looking like a lot like a fraud now.

Critical Race Theory teaches racism

 Tim Pool breaks it down.  This is what happens when you teach people only white people can be racist:

Obama-bashing is justified because he's anti-Israel.

I haven't felt any need to bash Obama for several years now because he is mostly irrelevant.  But it IS fun to watch these guys do it.  Also, I included this video because I've just recently discovered Krystal and Saagar and thought they deserved a shout out for their YouTube channel.

China's back baby (thanks to some guy who owes them)

Not my president has undone more president Trump good ideas, this time, serving his masters in China.  I know that sounds harsh.  Don't care.

Via The Verge:

President Joe Biden signed an executive order Wednesday revoking the Trump-era bans on TikTok and WeChat. In place of the Trump order, Biden will direct the commerce secretary to investigate apps with ties to foreign adversaries that may pose a risk to American data privacy or national security.
 
The order takes the place of a series of executive orders instituted by President Trump last year, which blocked apps like TikTok, WeChat, and Alipay from US app stores and took further measures to prevent them from operating in the US. The most extreme effects of those orders were forestalled by ongoing court challenges, but Wednesday’s order will revoke the orders outright. Instead, Biden’s order will institute a new framework for determining the national security risks of transactions that involve apps that are connected to the governments or militaries of foreign adversaries, like China, or collect sensitive data from US consumers.

The article goes on to praise the administration for all of their word-smithing about being concerned about China and America's cybersecurity and about unspecified upcoming actions against China.  Actions though, speak louder than words.  The administration's actions are very telling.

Just as a reminder: This guy?  Some American people voted for THIS GUY? Really???

What the hell is going on with Marco Rubio?

First Marco Rubio slam dunks on China apologists.  Then he blasts Big Tech.  Now he's saying that the shift in Hispanic voters towards the GOP is permanent as long as they continue on in president Trump's direction.


The man is on fire, nailing one topic after another. Why now?  He's very likely positioning himself for a 2024 run for president (as is Ted Cruz, in a different method).  I like this version of Marco Rubio.  The question is; is this the real Rubio now, or just a fa├žade intended to attract conservative voters?

My skepticism is strong, but I am willing to continue listening.

China's Imperialism in Africa

 Johnny Harris puts China's imperialism in Africa under the spotlight.

THIS is higher education? It's racism. Yale should be ashamed.

Via Hot Air:

...Today, Herzog has a follow up about a lecture which Yale School of Medicine’s Child Study Center hosted in April. The talk featured a New York psychiatrist named Aruna Khilanani. Her public lecture was titled “The Psychopathic Problems of the White Mind.”
Wait, it gets worse. Much worse:
  • “This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil.”
  • “I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a fucking favor.”
After that first quote above she goes on to say that she “took action” five years ago by distancing herself from all of her white friends. After the second quote she explains that her assassination fantasy was really about her own feelings of futility.



That Yale has not disavowed this outrageous diatribe is bad enough (considering they've banned conservative speakers for, you know, having ideas) but why have they not barred Aruna Khilanani entirely for her clearly racist rant? 

You know they answer - she's speaking their language.  This is the type of thing they want to hear and want to teach your children.  Everyone should speak out about this - to Yale directly.

If no one speaks out about this, to Yale, in massive volume, this sort of thing is going to continue unabated.  Do not let the left institutionalize racism. Do not let fear of speaking out about impropriety take hold or you will find a time when speaking out is no longer an option.  That point is much closer than you would think.  

The Babylon Bee is hilarious

 Pointing out the silliness in a fun way:

Andy Ngo attacked by ANTIFA (again), media ignores it (again)

 ANTIFA are scum. Period.


Seems the media are scum too.  I know, I know, ad hominem attacks are not useful but at some point, you have to point this garbage out for what it really is.

If Fauci is fired, media will claim he was a Trump era holdover

Dr. Fauci is a terrible bureaucrat and a terrible doctor.  He may get fired.  Imagine the furor if president Trump had fired him.  Nevertheless, if he gets fired watch the media spin it as him being one of the last president Trump holdovers now that his useful idiocy has ended.


Just like the Wuhan lab theory that was roundly 'discredited' while Trump was president, and is now being touted by the same media outlets as a possibility, Dr. Fauci will soon be seen as an incompetent boob by the left.  Why? He's no longer useful, he's become a liability for them.  So the story will change immediately as if everyone has no memory.  Sadly enough people don't.

The truth about conservatism

I'm glad to see the re-emergence of AlfonZo Rachel (at least he has been less prominent for me in recent years).  Here he joins Bill Whittle, I believe as a regular guest now, to discuss what conservatism really means. Both men make some great points here.

Rules for Patriots in action: the art of persuasion

 In Rules for Patriots Rule #1 I stated:

But knowing your facts is not limited to political issues.  You need to know your audience, you need to know how to speak to them in a persuasive way, which means you have to talk to them in a way that resonates with them. You can't do that unless you know them and understand what makes them tick.

Charisma on Command explains how to express an unpopular opinion (in a way that works).  This is important because the opinion of a patriot is going to be an unpopular one with many people, and we need to make it work when we try to state our opinion. We need to know the art of persuasion.  This video shows comedian Bill Burr performing the technique to near-perfection.
