Moms Must Keep Hammering School Boards Until Critical Race Theory Is Dead
[Federalist] Nationwide, mothers in school districts are pushing back against Marxist-infused critical race theory curricula in order to protect their children.

There have been few things more glorious to witness in recent weeks than the impressive array of courageous and relentless mothers around the country lambasting school boards for their support of vile critical race theory.

These moms of different socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds are confronting and boldly holding to account school board members, administrators, and teachers who are indoctrinating innocent children with a destructive ideology.

They understand perhaps better than anyone that Marxist-infused curricula intended to sow division and resentment have no place in a free and civilized society, and is endangering their children’s cognitive, psychological, and emotional well-being. It has been an exhilarating display of unity and common decency.

It turns out everyday women don’t want their children being brainwashed to view the world through the lens of “whiteness,” white racism, and white privilege. They don’t agree that America was founded on racist principles. They reject the claim that hard work, self-reliance, objectivity, deferred gratification, family, respect for authority, and respect for the written word are intrinsically racist values exploited by white Americans to relentlessly suppress people of color.

Mothers resent their children being defined as a collective based on race, gender and sexuality, and being told that their achievement in life is determined by these fixed categories as opposed to their endeavors. They don’t like the glorification of organizations like Black Lives Matter that undermine the nuclear family and promote violence against police.

Mothers taking on woke school boards understand that critical race theory and related “equity-based” training gives no one a free pass. Whether they’re being shamed as oppressors or demeaned as helpless victims, no child will emerge from this unscathed. It is mothers who have their children’s development and best interests at heart, and who will not see them shackled with racist labels and burdened with cruel and ignorant stereotypes.

The sort of psychological and emotional abuse, to say nothing of the academic vacuousness, that school children are being subjected to may appeal to the sliver of the population that consists of fringe white far-left neurotics and militant degenerates. But it does not curry favor with ordinary American families from all walks of life. A recent survey found that three-quarters of respondents were “somewhat or strongly opposed” to schools teaching that white people are inherently privileged, while people of color are inherently oppressed and victimized.

Bill Barr: Public Schools Are Becoming Unconstitutional ‘Secular-Progressive Madrassas'
The opening statement:
[Federalist] 'It may no longer be fair, practical, or even constitutional to provide publicly-funded education solely through the vehicle of state-operated schools,' the two-time U.S. attorney general contends.

“The greatest threat to religious liberty in America today,” said former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr in a recent speech, is “the increasingly militant and extreme secular-progressive climate of our state-run education system.”

Barr, whose high-profile career has demonstrated a deep commitment to the U.S. Constitution as written and intended, spoke to the religious liberty legal defense organization Alliance Defending Freedom. The legal lion put together a strong argument that a half-century of Supreme Court decisions combined with the left’s long march through American institutions have pushed U.S. public schools so far from religious neutrality that many now comprise a government-established preference for the atheist religion. Government preferences for some religious views over others are unconstitutional under the First Amendment.

“The heavy-handed enforcement of secular-progressive orthodoxy through government-run schools is totally incompatible with traditional Christianity and other major religious traditions in our country. In light of this development, we must confront the reality that it may no longer be fair, practical, or even constitutional to provide publicly-funded education solely through the vehicle of state-operated schools,” he said.

CNN Hires Trump As News Anchor To Recover Lost Viewers
[BB] In order to bring back the viewers it's lost since the 2020 election ended, CNN is rehiring the biggest draw for its audience: former President Trump, who will host all the news segments every night on prime time.

"What we've discovered since the election is people only watched our station to see Trump, so we're hiring him to anchor our programs," said Bob CNN, owner and founder of the cable news station. "This will finally get our ratings out of the dump."

If we want to fight the climate crisis, we must embrace nuclear power
We all know that climate change is the direst threat to face mankind in the entire history of dire threats. Or maybe white supremacy is -- who can keep track these days? We also know that it's all Trump's fault. Nonetheless, I was shocked to see the Guardian publish an opinion piece advocating nukes, since the Guardian is a leading proponent of using unicorn flatulence to drive turbine blades.
[Guardian] Even a more aggressive investment in renewable energy wouldn’t have solved Germany’s problem. There are just a handful of large economies that have already mostly decarbonized their grids; all of them have a foundation of nuclear or hydroelectricity (or both), and then to greater or lesser degrees add renewables like wind and solar on top. This is because nuclear and hydro are able to provide electricity whenever we need it. These "firm" sources of clean electricity do not need to wait for the sun to shine or the wind to blow to power the ventilators in our hospitals. Batteries and other forms of energy storage are great, and we need much more funding of research and development to make them even better, but until huge technological leaps occur, sustainables are hindered by the need for cooperative weather.
Heresy! AOC will strike this person down with her mighty intellectual powers.
So why, given the stakes of global warming, is there still so much hostility to nuclear power?
Because reasons, that's why.
Some of the paranoia is no doubt rooted in cold war-era associations of peaceful nuclear power with dangerous nuclear weaponry. We can and should separate these two, just like we are able to separate nuclear bombs from nuclear medicine. And we should also push back against popular narratives around Chernobyl and other disasters that simply aren’t replicable with modern technology. Advanced reactors and many existing ones are designed with passive safety systems — they don’t need active intervention by humans or a computer to deactivate in case of emergencies.
In case you're wondering, this guy has no scientific chops whatsoever. He is the author of The Socialist Manifesto, whatever that is, which explains why the Guardian lets him offer dissenting views. In their world, he's a Made Man.
Nuclear is an idea whose time came and seemed to have passed, but may indeed have a future. For those of us looking for a solution to climate change, the least we can ask is that no plants like Indian Power close until we have a clean, dependable and scalable alternative already in place.
But, but, we only have until next Tuesday to stop carbon emissions. John Kerry said so.

-Land of the Free
Could Trump Be Reinstated?
[RealClearPolitics] You probably heard it reported a few weeks ago that Donald Trump has been telling confidants that he expects to be reinstated as president in August. I have no way of knowing if that story is accurate, nor does New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman, who reported it, but we do know that Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, has boasted that he has evidence of election fraud that will force the Supreme Court to unanimously overturn the Nov. 3 election and put Trump back in power within six weeks.

No doubt that is far-fetched, but it raises the fascinating theoretical question of what would happen if a presidential election were indeed proven to be stolen. What would be the recourse? Or would the nation just have to accept its illegitimate ruler the way they do in corrupt Third World countries?

#5  Constitutional uncharted waters. Suppose they Impeach the Biden/Harris ticket leaving... Pelosi as Acting POTUS? Trump has already resigned, so...?
Posted by: magpie || 06/22/2021 12:30 Comments || Top||

#6  ...The only Constitutional remedy is impeachment. IF it could be proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that Biden knew what was going on (and if you think about it, that would explain why he was in his basement for most of the campaign and DOCTOR Jill was doing so much) then he could be jacked up on charges before the Senate.

Does anyone really think that people like Pelosi, Schumer, et al, would vote to impeach or convict?

You could hope that IF Biden actually didn't know what was happening and then had it proven, he'd have the decency to resign, but THAT opens up a can of worms at a positively Biblical level.

*If he resigns, you'll then have to prove President Harris knew, and imagine the fun once people start screaming about 'lynching' the first Female/Black VP.
*But let's say that somehow, it happens. Then that puts Nancy Pelosi in the White House - and I've said for some time that she may be crazy, but she's not insane - she's not going to leave a job as powerful as SOTH just to be President for a few years.
*And that makes Senator Patrick Leahy, the President pro tem of the Senate, POTUS. Hell of an improvement. And again - does anyone think that Harris, Pelosi, or Leahy would be any better than Biden, if not in fact worse?

I remember the many links here from 2017 and 2018, about the contorted scenarios that people were coming up with to put Hilary! in the Oval Office, all of which stumbled on the Constitution that we presumably hold so dear. But now, presumably rational people are making similar arguments from the other side of the aisle, and it just ain't gonna work.

We're stuck until 2024.

#7  Remember we are the united States of America (remember that in the original document united was not capitalized because it was the States of America acting in a united fashion to create.}. Constitutional remedy by deciding to re-stage the election when fraud has been proved could happen in mere weeks if all state legislatures acted. And, if they were really insightful, repealing the 17th Amendment might also change permanently the insanity of fiscal malfeasance that has impoverished our grandchildren.

#9  Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution says:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors...

I don't see anything that requires an honest election. Theoretically, a State could, if the Leg decrees, choose Electors from the local machine without reference to any election at all. If a State decides to stick with a bogus outcome, it seems to fall within their rights.

(Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer (PTUI), but I did have Fireball in my coffee this morning)

#10  Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors...

There is a big chunk of the problem. The Constitution says the state legislatures set the rules, but because *reasons*, state judges set aside the existing rules and made up their own for how ballots would be counted. (Hint: judges are part of the Executive and not the Legislature) I still cannot believe the US Supreme court punted on this for lack of standing.

#12  IF it could be proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that Biden knew what was going on
Quite obviously impossible - on this or any other thing he is clueless.
Constitution provides only one means of replacing the President, regardless of how he obtained office, and that is Impeachment, which will not happen. Even if it should, it would have to be repeated with Harris, resulting in Pelosi or whomever Harris appointed before being expelled. In no case could it ever be Trump.
The Bill of Rights did provide for one other means of replacing a government which had gotten to big for its britches, a number between one and three.

#13  He was elected by the electors and confirmed in the house.

But was Biden really elected by the proper number of electors? If he were not, a remedy must be found. The election would have been stolen and Biden would not be the President. Moreover, all his decisions would have to be negated.

But the point still stands. The Legislature sets the rules and this time they didn't.

Caucasus/Russia/Central Asia
80 years ago -- The invasion of Russia by Germany
On June 22, 1941, Germany launched its invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II, codenamed Operation Barbarossa. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler predicted a quick victory, but after initial success, the brutal campaign dragged on and eventually failed due to strategic blunders and harsh winter weather, as well as a determined Soviet resistance and attrition suffered by German forces.

I think that might be an echo of German accounts/reports that showed the German General Staff so badly underestimated actual Soviet strength that by their own reckoning they had 'destroyed' the Red Army by late fall....but they kept coming.

#5  Nah, that "Siberian army" myth has been debunked. The divisions were raised from around the Moscow area and sent into combat.

The real reason is that the Germans identifed 10 Soviet armies in front of Moscow. Destroy them and the war is won. They destroyed nine of them. The Soviets hid their strength so well nobody knew they were so hideously well armed. The Germans had identified over 300 divisions and they just kept coming. That plus the inadequate German logistics sealed the deal.

The lend lease didn't get going until 1942 didn't hit stride until 43. By that time the Germans were out of oil and had failed to seize more in the Caucasus (stopped at Stalingrad along the way).

#6  Barbarossa was supposed to begin in the spring of '41. The Greek defeat of the Italians in the Balkans forced the Germans to divert 700,000 men and materiel to the Balkan/Greek Invasion and delay Barbarossa. Otherwise, the Germans would have had additional time, men and materiel to take Moscow.

The fate of Georgia through the prism of the second Karabakh war
Direct translation. Edited. See the link for end notes and additional notes
by Vladimir Ryabtsev

[Regnum] As practice shows, Georgia swallows many actions of the Azerbaijani side, in a number of issues it simply condones Azerbaijan. How can one fail to recall the "neutrality" of official Tbilisi during the last war in Karabakh (yes, in fact, no one would really allow it to occupy it)!

What Quitters Understand About the Job Market
h/t HotAir
[The Atlantic] - Quitting your job is hot this summer. More Americans quit in May than any other month on record going back to the beginning of the century, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For every 100 workers in hotels, restaurants, bars, and retailers, about five of them quit last month.
Low-wage workers aren’t the only ones eyeing the door. In May, more than 700,000 workers in the bureau’s mostly white-collar category of "professional and business services" left their job—the highest monthly number ever. Across all sectors and occupations, four in 10 employees now say they’ve considered peacing out of their current place of work.

Why the sudden burst of quitting? One general theory is that we’re living through a fundamental shift in the relationship between employees and bosses that could have profound implications for the future of work. Up and down the income ladder, workers have new reasons to tell their boss to shove it. Lower-wage workers who benefited from enhanced unemployment benefits throughout the pandemic may have returned to the job and realized they’re not being paid enough. Now they’re putting their foot down, forcing restaurants and clothing stores to fork over a higher wage to keep people on staff.

...Quitting gets a bad rap in life, as it’s associated with pessimism, laziness, and lack of confidence. In labor economics, however, quits signify the opposite: an optimism among workers about the future; an eagerness to do something new; and a confidence that if they jump ship, they won’t drown but rather just land on a better, richer boat.

#3  ....What's going to be interesting is how this plays out. It seems to me that it can really only go one of two ways:

1) The employers grudgingly give in and jack up wages - which will increase prices and therefore fuel inflation.

2) The employers will wait it out...and they can last longer than the workers, but how long is the question.

#5  I think it's important to have another job offer before quitting your job. A bird in hand, as they say. But I also believe it's important to know when to start looking for that other job to keep from getting stuck in a rut.

Government Corruption
Kurt Schlichter: That Loudmouth Troublemaker Is An FBI Snitch
Kurt doesn’t hold back. Key paragraphs:

. But chasing commies and hood-wearing Dems is out of fashion, and things like figuring out the motive behind a guy who drools over Maddow and comes to a softball diamond with a rifle and a list of Republicans is too hard. Today, you are the target because you oppose the regime, and you are a target because you are law-abiding, and honest, and at some level you still cannot imagine your own government has you in its sights merely for trying to work for political change.

But it does.

Today, it’s open season on the *dministration’s political opponents instead of on actual criminals, so there’s about a 100% chance that the foam-mouthed idiot who just showed up to your conservative meeting or online in your chat thread talking about doing some damn fool thing has a junior G-man — actually, today it’s probably a junior G-nonbinary — on his speed dial.

— undoubtedly included a significant number of dudes working for the feds. Oh, the regime’s licensed media is denying it now, but like all the other big stories that got walked-back later — remember the tinkle tape, the Russian bounties, and the pangolin-slandering Wuhan lab thing? — we’ll eventually find out the truth about what the DoJ knew (everything) and when it knew it (all along).

And for those huffy bureaucrat defenders who insist our glorious premier investigative agency would never stoop to framing people, I give you "FBI Agent Kujtim Sadiku [who] admitted last week in an ongoing trial in Knoxville that federal agents:

  • Falsely accused former UTK associate professor Dr. Anming Hu of being a Chinese spy.

  • Falsely implicated him as an operative for the Chinese military in meetings with Hu’s bosses

  • Used false information to put Hu on the federal no-fly list.

  • Spurred U.S. customs agents to seize Hu’s computer and phone and spread word throughout the international research community that Hu was poison.

  • Used false information to justify putting a team of agents to spy on Hu and his son, a freshman at UTK, for nearly two years.

  • Used false information to press Hu to become a spy for the U.S. government.”

So, if you think those very special agents wouldn’t gin up and encourage a conspiracy to commit some crime in order to hook-up a bunch of knuckle-dragging Jesus people who like Trump and think that men can’t magically change into women by wanting to, think again. Here’s a good rule of thumb — assume anyone pushing conservatives to do something illegal, immoral, or just plain stupid in a chat room, at a meeting, in a bar, is probably working with the feds to set us up. And the proper response is "Beat it, narc."

Take the five dingbats who supposedly — because you can trust nothing coming out of the FBI

went bonkers over this ridiculous nonsense back when it first happened and the FBI is taking a bow for stopping this perilous plot that its own people were apparently plotting. I guess when actual mass murderers keep mass murdering, yet time after time the FBI knew about the nuts beforehand, you kind of need anything like a victory you can get. Retchin’ Gretchen was in more danger from air sickness on that donor’s jet that whisked her off to sunny, sane DeSantisland than from a quintet of misfits with a direct line back to the FBI HQ.

Understand that no one advocating violence — specifically that you go commit violence — is your friend. Such a person is either crazy, or stupid, or a snitch setting you up. Always reject them. Tell them to get the hell out. And do it loudly and clearly so the dudes sitting outside in the Ford Econoline van can get a nice crisp recording of you demanding they buzz off.

It’s not necessary or justified here, not even close, and no reasonable person could think so. The mechanisms of a free society are battered but they still exist, and they are our imperfect means of promoting change. But the nuts and the narcs will try to convince you differently. They will point out gross misconduct in six big Democrat cities last November, and it was gross — I was there. But they don’t point out that patriotic Americans won 15 seats in Congress in that same election. We can and do win elections, and we can and do win in court — not all the time, but sometimes, so that these remain viable paths to vindicate our rights. Yeah, the garbage media is biased, but we are strengthening the conservative alternative.

#2  I'm sure the planning to cancel DeSantis and render his office inoperable was already greenlit immediately after the last favourable CPAC poll, and something will be ready in time. Bureaucrats, congresspeople, media contractors, think tanks and judges all informed to watch out for another challenge to the consolidation of the One Party system. Probably why the hordes cultivated by the Dems haven't been designated as crims and put away yet. Trumps will keep rising for a while, one stronger than the other, and they'll have to be dealt with. I'm sorry but anyone who thinks winning elections and court cases alone will be enough is just wrong.

#1  Correction: We are now hearing calls for 16-year olds to vote Democratic.
Posted by: Matt || 06/22/2021 13:05 Comments || Top||

#2  I was in favor of the 18-year-old vote in 1970 because I didn't think it was right to send young men to fight for democracy when those same young men were not allowed to vote. I thought young men who are being required to fight in a war should have a say in whether or not that war should even be fought.

Today's 16-year-olds face no such set of circumstances. The justifiable fear is that today's 16-year-olds have been subjected to indoctrination by teachers' union operatives. They need time in the working world so they can see reality before they vote. You might even say the same for 18-year-olds since the draft is no longer in effect.

#4  16-18 years old can graduate from high school
16-21 years old "get your adult compass bearings ☼ "
and set sail to adulthood.

Adulthood, the period in the human lifespan in which full physical and intellectual maturity have been attained. Adulthood is commonly thought of as beginning at age 20 or 21 years. Middle age, commencing at about 40 years, is followed by old age at about 60 years.


Emancipation is a legal way for children to become adults before they are 18. Once a child is emancipated, his or her parents do not have custody or control of him or her anymore. Emancipation is usually forever. But the court can cancel the emancipation if the minor asking for the emancipation lies to the court or is no longer able to support himself or herself.

If you are emancipated, you can do some things without your parent’s permission, like:

Get medical care;
Apply for a work permit;
Sign up for school or college; and
Live where you want to.

The dimension of space and time, represented by what is transpiring in the here and now, is all that we will ever know.

Unlike the continuum of perpetual time and infinite space, everything that we know will experience disruption, dissolution, disintegration, dismemberment, and death.

The inevitability of our ending represents the tragic comedy of life.

Much of our needless suffering emanates from resisting our impermanence rather than embracing our fate.

Only through acceptance of the events and situations that occur in a person's life including suffering, and by releasing our attachments, will a person ever experience enlightenment.

Heart Problems In Vaccinated Students Trigger Medical, Legal Scrutiny Of Campus Covid Mandates
[JUSTTHENEWS] As the government reviews several hundred reports of heart inflammation in young people following COVID vaccination, high-profile medical and legal scholars are calling on colleges to scrap their COVID vaccine mandates, calling them unnecessary and potentially harmful to students.

University of California-Irvine medical ethicist Aaron Kheriaty and University of Notre Dame law professor Gerard Bradley went so far as to invoke the post-Nazi Nuremberg Code in urging universities to abandon their mandates, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed this week.

Though many universities already offer exemptions based on medical history and religious objections, the professors suggest two more: the emergency use authorization (EUA) status of the COVID vaccines and widespread natural immunity.

Younger adults and children have "extremely low" risk of mortality from COVID, epidemiologists Martin Kulldorff of Harvard Medical School and Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford Med wrote in an op-ed for The Hill Thursday.

(Kulldorff, a pioneer in vaccine safety, didn't share the op-ed on his newly unlocked Twitter feed. "Twitter does not allow vaccine scientists to freely discuss vaccines, but you can find it on my LinkedIn and Gab accounts," he tweeted Thursday, referring to his monthlong suspension for questioning the protective power of masks.)

"Even a slight risk of a serious vaccine adverse reaction could tip the benefit-risk calculation, making the vaccine more harmful than beneficial," Kulldorff and Bhattacharya wrote, accusing universities with mandates of ignoring "basic benefit-risk analyses, a staple of the toolbox of scientists."

Science & Technology
Dr Pierre Gilbert 1995 Magnetic Vaccines (English Subtitles)
Dr Pierre Gilbert in 1995:

"In the biological destruction there are the organized tempests on the magnetic fields. What will follow is a contamination of the bloodstreams of mankind, creating intentional infections. This will be enforced via laws that will make vaccination mandatory. And these vaccines will make possible to control people. The vaccines will have liquid crystals that will become hosted in the brain cells, which will become micro-receivers of electromagnetic fields where waves of very low frequencies will be sent. And through these low frequency waves people will be unable to think, you’ll be turned into a zombie. Don’t think of this as a hypothesis. This has been done. Think of Rwanda"

mRNA vaccines appear to be damaging red blood cells
[American Thinker] Citing experts at the Meedan Digital Health Lab , Reuters Fact Check vigorously asserts that the spike proteins induced by the COVID vaccines do not kill or damage cells.

Perhaps so, but something from the vaccines is causing deformations and apparent inflammation in red blood cells, as evidenced by images from microscopy photos. Images of blood cells taken before and after the vaccines can be seen starting about two minutes into the five-minute video. Postvaccine red blood cells exhibit rough instead of smooth edges, irregular shapes, and grouping together over time which is described as the "beginning form of thrombosis," or blood clots. More research is needed to determine exactly what is causing these cell deformations.

There are also numerous tiny white particles in the photographs which are presumed to be lipid nanoparticles (LNP). The delicate mRNA fragments from Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are encased in LNP, which serves to protect the mRNA from disintegrating before it can do its job in our bodies. Pfizer conducted a biodistribution study where they injected rats with bioluminescent RNA-encapsulated LNP, and found that the LNP had travelled not only beyond the injection site, but throughout the circulatory and immune systems, and had accumulated in virtually every organ in the body.

Meanwhile, Spain and Russia are reportedly advising citizens to avoid air travel if they have been vaccinated for COVID-19. It’s common knowledge that flying frequently, especially on long distance international flights, can cause blood clots, but talk about mixed signals! What’s next, nonvaccination passports? The takeaway here ought to be that whether or not someone gets vaccinated should be a personal decision, and that the practice of forcing people, especially students and younger adults, to get vaccinated, should be abandoned.

(Continued due to editor glitch)

* '90% COVID patients who were given fake Remdesivir survived': India's Gujarat Police busted the inter-state racket' (original link, freep thread.

I want you to consider that the people who made this virus, who aren't all in China, (even though China is currently rich and powerful) didn't make it and release it so they could stop there and tell the truth about how to treat it.

It would take very little to dump "fake" hcq into the Brazilian market, especially if they don't have local manufacturers. And if they're doing that with remdesivir, they're probably doing it with hcq and ivermectin as well.

Then look at Israel's 689 deaths per million from the disease and compare it to Vietnam's ~ 20 deaths per million. That's pretty much raw data there, they're using _something_.

#22  In the meantime, I suspect whatever vaccines are single dose are probably safer than the multiple-dose versions. I suspect, but can't prove, that the multiple-dose thing is a statistical hack to ensure everyone's gotten a working dose even though storage and transport of the vaccines are problamatic.

And that the multiple dose thing is what's causing the problem with people with diagnosed or undiagnosed autoimmune issues.
