Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Jonathan Emord is back to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Biden Makes Cannon Fodder of History Joe Biden tells whoppers with such frequency, it is dif
A Supreme Court justice’s solution to gun violence: Repeal Second Amendment Four years ago, when — as now — the nation was reeling from the horror of a mass school shooting, a retired Supreme Court justice suggested a radical solution: getting rid of the Second Amendment. John Paul Stevens issued the call after 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in February 2018. The attack prompted hundreds of thousands to demand action the next month to end gun violence at the March for Our Lives. In a March 27, 2018, New York Times op-ed, Stevens praised the protesters and their call for stricter gun control laws. “But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform,” he wrote, about a year before his death at 99. “They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.” Stevens said the amendment was adopted out of concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the states. “Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century,” he wrote. An elementary school massacre spurred tighter gun control in the U.K. He called repeal a “simple but dramatic action [that] would move Saturday’s marchers closer to their objective than any other possible reform” and would make schoolchildren safer. But Stevens didn’t acknowledge the herculean challenge that his proposal entailed, as there was (and remains) zero chance that gun control advocates would get anywhere close to the two-thirds majority in both houses of Congress and ratification by three-fourths of the states needed for repeal.
Beyond ‘Assault Weapons’: Kathy Hochul Targets ‘Semiautomatic Rifles’ New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) joined with state assembly leaders to announce ten new gun control bills, including a new minimum age and licensing requirement for the purchase of a “semiautomatic rifle.” On May 31, 2022, Hochul tweeted, “New York already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country — but there’s more work to do to keep New Yorkers safe. We are going to strengthen gun laws, give law enforcement tools to prevent crime, & stop the spread of dangerous weapons.” She posted a summary of the new gun control bills to her website: The bills would: require information sharing between state, local and federal agencies when guns are used in crimes; make threatening mass harm a crime; require microstamping for new guns; increase accountability for social media platforms; eliminate grandfathering of large capacity ammunition feeding devices; prohibit the purchase of body armor for anyone who is not engaged in an eligible profession; strengthen the Red Flag law by expanding the list of people who can file for Extreme Risk Protection Orders, and other measures; require that an individual obtain a license, with a minimum age of 21, to purchase a semiautomatic rifle; and close the “any other weapon” loophole. Hochul used a tweet to specifically address the push to raise the age and require a license for a semiautomatic rifle purchase. The governor said, “The gunmen in Buffalo and Uvalde both legally purchased the rifles they used to commit mass murders at the age of 18. So we’re raising the age requirement to 21 to obtain a license to purchase a semiautomatic rifle.”
Justice Department Appeals to Get Masks Back on Airlines, Buses, and Trains I am not a gambling man. As an investor, financial data analyst, and rock climber, I may appear on the surface to be a massive risk-taker, but in fact I see myself as a proactive risk-manager. It’s critical to know the stakes of the game, and to manage all the risks we can. Sometimes, that means keeping money in bonds or REITs, taking my rock-climbing gear for a hike to the cliff and back without ever climbing rocks, and choosing to stay inside instead of skiing on unstable snowpack. Meanwhile, the CDC, goaded by a community of epidemiologists firing tweets from their armchairs, is proving to be quite the gambler, going so far as to take a loan on our administrative state in its latest game of public health policy roulette. The world’s epidemiologists first displayed an uncanny appetite for gambling when they manufactured consent for the containment of COVID in 2020. At the time, we had vaccines in development that were positioned to undergo phase 3 trials, but we had no proof that these vaccines would work. The prior history of vaccines for coronaviruses was not promising. Despite decades of monitoring strain evolution and developing real-world vaccines, our influenza vaccines averaged ~30% effectiveness at reducing infections, and we had never before seen a coronavirus vaccine make it through phase 3 trials.
California Releases 500-page Interim Report Backing Reparations, Separate Black Schools The State of California, which entered the Union in 1850 as a free state, has issued a 492-page interim report recommending the state pay reparations for slavery and for other acts of racial injustice, nationally and locally, over the last two centuries. The report, issued by the California’s Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans, is the outcome of deliberations that were launched last June when Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed AB 3121 into law. The nine-member panel, which is predominantly black, deadlocked for months over the question of who should benefit from proposed reparations — whether all people of color, or only those who could prove that they were directly descended from slaves. Ultimately, the panel decided to focus more narrowly, but the legislative recommendations of the interim report include broad measures that would apply to all “Black Californians,” such as a proposal to “[e]stimate the value of Black-owned businesses and property in California stolen or destroyed through acts of racial terror, distribute this amount back to Black Californians, and make housing grants, zero-interest business and housing loans and grants available to Black Californians.”
Farm Inflation: Prices Surge for Chickens, Eggs, Wheat, Corn, and Milk Prices paid to American farmers for crops and livestock continued to soar in April, data released by the Department of Agriculture on Tuesday showed. The index of prices received for agricultural production was up 5.1 percent compared with a month earlier. Compared with a year ago, prices of U.S. agricultural products are up 28 percent. The index for crops rose 1.7 in April and is up 17 percent compared with April of 2021. The livestock index jumped eight percent from March and is up 40 percent compared with a year ago. Food grains—including corn and wheat—were up 2.8 percent for the month and 45 percent compared with a year ago. Feed grain prices increased 7.8 percent from the prior month and 33 percent from a year ago. The poultry and egg index jumped 22 percent from March and 94 percent from a year earlier. The April market egg price, at $2.21 per dozen, is 81.0 cents higher than March and $1.64 higher than April 2021. The price of chickens raised for meat, at $1.05 per pound, is 15.3 cents higher than March and 49.7 cents higher than a year ago. At 95.3 cents per pound, the April turkey price is 2.5 cents higher than the previous month and 18.5 cents higher than April 2021. Milk prices climbed 4.12 percent in April and are up 47 percent compared with a year earlier.
U.S. Marine Corps Goes Woke, Celebrates ‘Pride Month’ with Rainbow Bullets The U.S. Marine Corps went full woke on Wednesday, marking the first day of “Pride Month” with a celebratory image featuring rainbow bullets. “Throughout June, the USMC [U.S. Marine Corps] takes #Pride in recognizing and honoring the contributions of our LGBTQ service members,” the U.S. Marine Corps said in a statement posted to social media. “We remain committed to fostering an environment free from discrimination, and defend the values of treating all equally, with dignity and respect,” it added, using the hashtags #PrideMonth and #USMC. The statement is accompanied by an image of a Marine helmet adorned with six bullets, each a different color, comprising a rainbow: Commenters were woefully unamused by the pandering attempt. “Maybe focus on what’s actually important to the nation’s defense. China and Russia are bolstering up their ranks with masculinity understanding it’s necessity, while we seem to be celebrating sexual choices and gender changes in our military,” one user remarked as another said, “This makes me sad.” “Is this satire?” another asked. “I’ve seen it all now,” another exclaimed as one added, “Focus on building warriors and less about social bullshit.” The tweet came on the first day of “Pride Month,” which spurred mass pandering from the Biden administration, corporate media, and various organizations.
Special Guest – Dr. Tau Braun
As a Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Tau Braun focused on integrative psychology and wellness. Post 9/11, Dr. Braun began to narrow his research and practice to understanding the causes of violence, the prevention and response to violence, and crisis psychology. As a U.S. National Counterterrorism and Emergency Management SME, Dr. Braun advises and trains educational institutions, healthcare facilities, corporations (including Fortune 100 and 500 companies), and both state and federal government organizations in Violence Prevention Strategies and Crisis Response, such as Threat Management; Active Attacker Prevention and Response, Counterterrorism, and Crisis Leadership. In 2019, Dr. Braun provided testimony on Mass Violence to the Texas Senate. Dr. Tau Braun’s epistemological, humanistic, systems-based approach offers a compassionate, scientific, optimistic, and mindful solution to complex issues. During the COVID crisis, Dr. Braun found himself in the epicenter, New York City, and shifted his focus towards mitigation and prevention strategies against the virus, a non-human mass casualty attacker, causing immense amounts of human suffering. In 2020-2021 he led a team of scientists in developing and sourcing Covid-19 response strategies. This effort culminated in the invention of Copperine, a bioavailable copper-zinc-polyphenol formulation. The patent-pending compound is suitable for a wide range of delivery methods, including but not limited to an aerosolized vapor that is inhaled and sprayed directly into the mouth. Dr. Braun is currently investigating the bio-synthetic aspects of SARS-CoV2, the possibility that it is a military-grade biological weapon, and mapping its pathophysiology.
Globalists Are Taking Over the Food System — It’s Part of Their Plan to Control You The globalist takeover agenda is nothing if not comprehensive. They’re coming at us from every possible angle, and whether we’re talking about biosecurity, finance, housing, health care, energy, transportation or food, all the changes we’re now seeing have one goal, and that is to force compliance with the globalists’ agenda. In an April 27 blog post, investigative journalist Corey Lynn takes a deep dive into the new food system being put into place, and how it is geared to control you: “‘Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.’ This famous quote by Henry Kissinger is ringing more and more true by the week,” Lynn writes. “The globalists already control the majority of the money, are moving ever so swiftly to convert the energy system over into systems they are all invested in, and have been taking drastic measures to control the food industry while running much of it under the radar. If they control the seeds they control the food, and if they control the food they can use the digital ID to control consumer access to the food. “While a rash of fires suddenly destroy food processing, meat, and fertilizer plants, during a time where farmers are hurting and supply chain issues are kicking in, an entire traceable food infrastructure system has already been built in multiple cities and is making its way across the globe … “The USDA and FDA have already approved lab-grown meat, genetically modified cattle, and are funding the globalists to research and develop cellular agriculture as well as indoor growers and genetics companies …
Question of The Day!
Hi Robert and Super Don, I found out yesterday I’m going to be a grandma. Could suggest what vitamins and minerals for my daughter to take? Should she drink Cardio Miracle? I’ve heard you say you don’t like a one a day vitamin. Also after learning how messed up the medical care system is who would you recommend for Good health care for my daughter to help her through her pregnancy? Thank you for you help.
Would You Pay With Your Face for ‘Convenience?’ “What is important to you? What world do you want to live in? How do you want to exist? Is convenience what you prioritize above all else?” Russell Brand suggested we should be asking ourselves these questions as corporations roll out biometric payment systems “for our convenience.” In a recent video segment, “Oh No. You Were Right,” Brand looked at reports that Mastercard is implementing “smile-to-pay” technology that allows customers to pay with their faces using biometric data. Mastercard announced in mid-May a pilot of the program in Brazil, saying in a statement that it would be introduced next in the Middle East and Asia. With the technology — which interfaces with an app called Payface — “consumers can simply check the bill and smile into a camera or wave their hand over a reader to pay,” said the announcement. “For merchants, the benefits are also considerable, from faster transaction times and shorter lines to greater hygiene and heightened security,” according to Mastercard. Brand questioned the motives behind the innovation.
We must cancel Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi; here’s why As I recently pointed out after dredging up the original meaning of the 1st Amendment, free speech isn’t a right, it’s a territory, and the stronger force in the battle wins. The stronger force owns free speech. That’s what the Founders intended, but failed to spell out. Of course. Therefore, in order to know who to cancel and ban in this war, we have to know where persons of interest stand. Are they on the Right or the Left? Are they friend or enemy? The worst people are the ones who don’t clearly define themselves—like Greenwald and Taibbi. Instead, they SPREAD CONFUSION. Greenwald. When he helped Ed Snowden expose the predatory Surveillance State, he was writing for The Guardian, a Left newspaper. Fine. So the attack on the NSA must have been coming from the Left. Right? But now, the man is writing all sorts of…I don’t know what to call it. He’s accusing the (Left) Biden administration and major (Left) media of propagating massive disinformation.
