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:
Ron DeSantis: There Is Proof Big Tech Targeted ‘Scientific Dissenters to Control the Narrative Around COVID-19’ There is proof that the medical establishment targeted “scientific dissenters” as part of an overarching attempt to control the narrative on the Chinese coronavirus, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said during a roundtable discussion on Tuesday. “Part of this issue and other issues with COVID … goes back to an attempt to enforce one acceptable narrative on all these issues.” DeSantis stated during the roundtable discussion, pointing to the censorship of Dr. Jay Bhattachary on Twitter, specifically. “You also saw it with Dr. Fauci and some of these people saying that they needed to go after these people who wrote the Great Barrington Declaration,” DeSantis said of the open letter, which questioned the way federal health officials and the medical establishment were handling the pandemic, placing the burden on the working class. DeSantis said the opposers of that letter were not wanting to contest the ideas but wanted to “smear them,” because they “didn’t want to have any criticism of their lockdown policies.” “And so part of the reason I think it’s been a bad response is because from the very beginning, you’ve had a lot of arrogance that it’s our way or the highway, and anyone that offers any type of a dissenting opinion — and they were censoring from day one,” DeSantis said, noting that some people who were writing “anti-lockdown things” in March and April of 2020 were finding themselves censored on Big Tech platforms. He said, explaining that the elites did not want those rules to apply to them, that instead, they wanted to “distance themselves from any criticism or denigrate anybody that had a different way of thinking.”
CNN Poll: 59% of Democrats Want Someone Other than Joe Biden as 2024 Nominee A majority 59 percent of Democrats prefer someone other than President Joe Biden to be the party’s 2024 nominee, a CNN poll revealed Wednesday. Among the 59 percent that prefer another Democrat to Biden, only 51 percent say they will “definitely” vote for Biden if he were the party’s 2024 nominee. Just 28 percent say they “probably” would vote for Biden. Overall, 86 percent say they would support or would likely support Biden in a 2024 election if he were the party’s nominee. Among those who prefer someone else to Biden, 72 percent have no specific alternative, which speaks to the Democrat Party’s dilemma of future succession. Those mentioned as a replacement to Biden include Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg (5 percent), California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) (4 percent), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (4 percent), Vice President Kamala Harris (3 percent), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) (2 percent). Biden’s favorability rating is greater than the two greatest potential challengers to Biden. Biden’s favorability rating is 83 percent with 11 percent holding an unfavorable view. Newsom’s favorability is only 45 percent with 9 percent unfavorable, while Harris’s favorability score is 66 percent positive with 14 negative. Only 70 percent of Democrats believe Biden, the current leader of the Democrat Party and sitting president, deserves a second term, while 28 percent, over a quarter of the party, do not believe Biden deserves another four years at the future age of 82. Fifty-six percent of young people, those younger than 35, say Biden deserves a second term. Eighty percent of Democrats older than 50 believe Biden does deserve a second term. Overall, just 62 to 37 percent of the electorate do not believe Biden deserves a second term.
Kyrsten Sinema Defecting from Democrat Party Creates Big 2024 Election Headache for Old Party Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) defecting from the Democrat Party to become an “Arizona Independent” creates a big headache for her old party as it tries to keep its slim 51-seat majority in the United States Senate in 2024. In the next election cycle, 23 of the 33 Senate seats up for reelection are currently held by Democrats or left-leaning Independents, and former President Donald Trump won six of the states by double digits in at least one of his presidential elections. The New York Times acknowledged that some of the hardest seats for the Democrats to keep will be Sen. Jon Tester’s (D) Montana seat, Sen. Sherrod Brown’s (D) Ohio seat, and Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D) West Virginia seat. Trump won those states by 16, 8, and 29 percent in 2020. However, even before her announcement, Democrats had already talked about having someone primary her when she’s up for reelection in 2024 for not being far-left enough. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) has even been floated as a potential primary candidate against her. On Wednesday, Politico explained one option that would allow the Arizona senator’s party switch not to cause a contested Democrat primary but could end up making a “nightmare scenario” for the party: With three candidates on the ballot, a GOP nominee can capitalize on centrist and liberal divisions and win a Senate seat with a plurality vote. Democrats are not eager to intervene at the moment, but at some point they may have to make a call about whether to support Sinema, back whoever wins a primary or sit out the race altogether.
Joe Biden: Republican Bans on Transgender Surgeries for Children Connected to Anti-Semitism President Joe Biden said Tuesday at the White House that Republican bans on transgender surgeries were transphobic and connected to anti-semitism. “Folks, racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia — they’re all connected,” he said. The president spoke about laws passed by Republican states to make irreversible gender transitioning procedures for children illegal, arguing they were transphobic and inspired by hate. “We need to challenge the hundreds of callous and cynical laws introduced in the states targeting transgender children, terrifying families, and criminalizing doctors who give children the care they need,” he said. Repealing Republican laws banning gender transitioning treatments for children, Biden argued, is part of the government’s role to “protect children.” “We have to protect these children so they know they are loved and that we will stand up for them and so they can seek for themselves,” he said. Biden made his comments on the transgender agenda during a White House signing ceremony of a bill passed to make same-sex marriages legal. “This law, and the love it defends, strike a blow against hate in all its forms,” he said. “And that’s why this law matters to every single American, no matter who you are or who you love.” He warned that Republicans fighting to protect children from transgender activists posed a threat to communities that were trying to be more inclusive.
John Boehner Cries in Nancy Pelosi Tribute During Speaker’s Portrait Unveiling Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) became choked up on Wednesday as he spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a ceremony for the unveiling of Pelosi’s speaker’s portrait. Boehner, who is known for crying, was speaking during the event about his and his family’s appreciation for Pelosi, whom he succeeded in 2011, when Boehner became tearful. “Madam Speaker, I have to say, my girls told me, ‘Tell the speaker how much we admire her,’” Boehner said as tears filled his eyes and the crowd applauded. He then added with a laugh, “If you couldn’t tell, my girls are Democrats.” Pelosi delivered remarks after Boehner, saying, “How about John Boehner? Wasn’t that something? I’m telling you, I would have been a little disappointed if he did not get emotional.” The portrait of Pelosi, the first woman to become speaker of the House, will be hung in a lobby of portraits of speakers in the U.S. Capitol, and Boehner noted the late artist Ronald Sherr painted both his and Pelosi’s. Boehner also spoke during his remarks about how he and Pelosi “disagreed politically” but “were never disagreeable.” Boehner said, “You were so gracious to me, in fact, that at times, it got me in trouble with my own members.”
10 Upsides To Socialism When socialism arrives, you’re going to want to be ready to “look at the glass as half-full” – even if the glass is empty or even if there is no glass! Here are 10 new perspectives you can adopt in the glorious socialist utopia that will help you make the best of things! It’s all about perspective – just remember to look on the bright side – or else!
Trust “The Science”? No. Thanksgiving weekend came and went in 2021. The soothsayers of Team Apocalypse were wrong again—the sky didn’t fall. Whole populations of families who dared to get together to celebrate were not wiped out. But that didn’t stop NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci. The Covid fatality rate doesn’t hold a candle to the risk of standing between Dr. Fauci and a camera. After a few softball questions the television host of CBS’s Face the Nation asked Dr. Fauci about recent criticism of him from various corners. He replied: So, it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous. To me, that’s more dangerous than the slings and the arrows that get thrown at me. I’m not going to be around here forever, but science is going to be here forever. And if you damage science, you are doing something very detrimental to society long after I leave. And that’s what I worry about. It is indeed dangerous to claim to represent science. Science doesn’t need sales reps, since it is the conceptualization of physical reality itself as determined by experiment and data. What Fauci truly represented is the authoritarian State with a capital “S.” Emails released through the Freedom of Information Act show Fauci to be a manipulative man of politics, deftly brushing off lengthy diatribes against him or mustering forces to push back on Team Reality. It really is quite the position to be in as the highest paid federal employee in history to call upon the systematic enterprise of knowledge known as “science” to shield you from criticism.
Special Guest – Jeffrey Smith!
The leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices, Jeffrey Smith’s meticulous research documents how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials to put the health of society at risk and the environment in peril. His work expertly summarizes why the safety assessments conducted by the FDA and regulators worldwide teeter on a foundation of outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our nation’s top food safety priority.
Mr. Smith’s feature-length documentary Genetic Roulette — The Gamble of Our Lives was awarded the 2012 Movie of the Year (Solari Report) and the Transformational Film of the Year (AwareGuide). Seen by millions world-wide, the film links genetically engineered food to toxic and allergic reactions, infertility, digestive disorders, and numerous other problems that have been on the rise in the US population since genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were introduced.
His books include: Seeds of Deception, the world’s bestseller on GMOs; and Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods. They expertly demonstrate why the safety assessments by the FDA and regulators worldwide are based on outdated science and false assumptions, and why genetically engineered foods must urgently become our top food safety priority.
Questions of The Day!
Hi RSB and Super Don,
I have contacted you before and always gratefully appreciate your help. Most people talk about Remdesivir as the main drug (along with ventilation) to avoid in the hospitals when diagnosed and imprisoned with “COVID”. But, my father was killed this past January using a drug I had never heard of: Baricitinib. When I looked into it (Just a few weeks ago after finally receiving the medical records I had been requesting since January), I found that it has 5 black box warnings and that Dr. Ardis announced that he had just discovered in May of this year that hospitals had started using that drug to kill “COVID” patients, either in addition to remdesivir and ventilation, or when a patient was wise enough to reject remdesivir. So, I am writing to you today to hope to inform others about this additional deadly and evil tactic being used in the hospitals, but also to find out if you know anyone trying to do any kind of class action suit against… well, anyone for this drug or any other “COVID” related drug, or all of the hospital imprisonments and murders? The CDC for pushing a known to be deadly protocol? Seems like there are so many people that need to be held accountable here. I hate the idea of anyone else’s loved one suffering and being imprisoned and murdered the way my father was (he had been doing so well with his pituitary tumor after the ideas you had given me before!)… and I know it is still going on… all these months later. It just grieves my heart. Anyway, love you guys… and thank you for any information you have, and if you are able to share this with the public so they have more information.
Hi Robert and Don – do you think it would be okay to add Super Fulvic Minerals that I purchase from Jonathan Otto to my Cardio Miracle? Also, would it be okay to put a drop of iodine in the Cardio Miracle? I take these daily.
